Miguel de Cervantes
The best teacher is the one who suggests rather than dogmatizes, and inspires his listener with the wish to teach himself.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
I always wished I had died, and I still wish that, because I could have gotten the whole thing over with.
I wish more people felt that photography was an adventure the same as life itself and felt that their individual feelings were worth expressing. To me, that makes photography more exciting.
Sometimes you just got to give yourself what you wish someone else would give you.
We live, not as we wish to, but as we can.
How I wish we lived in a time when laws were not necessary to safeguard us from discrimination.
In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.
S. I. Hayakawa
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 were supernaturally strong so I could put right everything that is wrong.
I wish I had the nerve not to tip.
I hate cameras. They interfere, they're always in the way. I wish: if I could work with my eyes alone.
To my surprise, my 70s are nicer than my 60s and my 60s than my 50s, and I wouldn't wish my teens and 20s on my enemies.

As soon as someone tells me: 'You're rather sexy,' I wish I could disappear. If somebody says: 'You were voted the world's sexiest man,' I have no idea what that means. How do I respond? 'Thank you' is the best you can do. George Clooney is the world's sexiest man, anyway.
