Much as we may wish to make a new beginning, some part of us resists doing so as though we were making the first step toward disaster.
William Throsby Bridges
Days will prove that the assassination policy will not finish the Hamas. Hamas leaders wish to be martyrs and are not scared of death. Jihad will continue and the resistance will continue until we have victory, or we will be martyrs.
During my school days, I was doing a play, and my costume fell on the stage. I really wish it didn't happen.
I just think that there's so much judgment in the world, whether it's coming from women in general or from men onto women - it's a lot. And when it comes to being a mom, I wish everyone could band together and realize that everyone has different beliefs, different styles, and different things that work for them and their family.
Be content with what you are, and wish not change; nor dread your last day, nor long for it.
People do not wish to appear foolish; to avoid the appearance of foolishness, they are willing to remain actually fools.
People spend a lifetime thinking about how they would really like to live. I asked my friends and no one seems to know very clearly. To me it's very clear now. I wish my life could have been like the years when I was writing 'Love in the Time of Cholera.'
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
I wish people who have trouble communicating would just shut up.
Almost everything I've done, I've done through my own creativity. I don't think I ever had to listen to anyone else to learn how to play drums. I wish I could say that for about ten thousand other drummers.
I wish I was harder; I wish I didn't care so much about being the nice girl all the time because a lot of the time people can take kindness for weakness, so I wish I had a little bit more 'oomph' in me.
If you wish to be loved, show more of your faults than your virtues.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
I wish they'd had electric guitars in cotton fields back in the good old days. A whole lot of things would've been straightened out.
We can allow satellites, planets, suns, universe, nay whole systems of universes, to be governed by laws, but the smallest insect, we wish to be created at once by special act.
People say, 'Oh, God, how devastating to go through a divorce.' Did I wish for this to happen to my family? No. But everyone is healthy; we're moving on with our lives.
If I could be granted a wish, I'd shine in your eye like a jewel.
I keep waiting for the roof to cave in. I was raised to follow the Golden Rule, you know, treat people the way you wish to be treated. That's kind of the way I live my life. Maybe someone up there likes me for that.
My job involves searching for 'lost' quotations - that is, trying to find out who came up with a quotable saying that lingers in someone's mind and which they wish to use for their own purpose and which they cannot find in conventional dictionaries of quotation.
The family, that dear octopus from whose tentacles we never quite escape, nor in our innermost hearts never quite wish to.
There's only one thing I never did and wish I had done: climbed over a fence.
Who you are vs. who you wish you were: Who wins?
My role models are people who can do things; I say to myself, 'I wish I could do that.'
Queen Rania of Jordan
