Of course I believe imaginative architecture can make a difference to people's lives, but I wish it was possible to divert some of the effort we put into ambitious museums and galleries into the basic architectural building blocks of society.
As you see, I do not treat the creation of fiction, that to say the invention and development of fantasies, as a form of abstract thought. I don't wish to deny the uses of the intellect, but sometimes one has the intuition that the intellect by itself will lead one nowhere.
J. M. Coetzee
The dark shadow we seem to see in the distance is not really a mountain ahead, but the shadow of the mountain behind - a shadow from the past thrown forward into our future. It is a dark sludge of historical sectarianism. We can leave it behind us if we wish.
It is not enough just to wish well; we must also do well.
I don't regret anything I've ever done. I only wish I could have done more.
I photograph the things that I do not wish to paint, the things which already have an existence.
If you wish to spare yourself and your venerable family, give heed to my advice with the ear of intelligence. If you do not, you will see what God has willed.
I wish I could fly. Or speak fluent Chinese. Both I think are equally impossible.
At no point do I wish to be in conflict with any man or masculine thought. It doesn't enter my consciousness. Art is anonymous. It's not competitive with men. It's a complementary contribution.
I wish I had been wiser. I wish I had been more effective, I wish I'd been more unifying, I wish I'd been more principled.
Don't sit and wish for some ideal; the grass is not always greener with the big house and cars and artwork.
I wish I were with some of the wild people that run in the woods, and know nothing about accomplishments!
I wish I were one of those terribly clever people who, when they write their autobiographies, always say, when I was fifteen months old I distinctly remember my Aunt Fanny saying to me, etc.
I wish being a beekeeper, which I am, gave you a free pass on the carbon footprint, but it doesn't.
A goal without a plan is just a wish.
We will receive not what we idly wish for but what we justly earn. Our rewards will always be in exact proportion to our service.
If you wish to achieve worthwhile things in your personal and career life, you must become a worthwhile person in your own self-development.
I always wish the hotels were like they are in movies and TV shows, where if you're in Paris, right outside your window is the Eiffel Tower. In Egypt, the pyramids are right there. In the movies, every hotel has a monument right outside your window. My hotel rooms overlook the garbage dumpster in the back alley.
The bravest person I've ever met was a young boy going through massive amounts of treatment for a very rare, complex and unpleasant disease. I last saw him at a Discworld convention, where he chose to take part in a game as an assassin. He died not long afterwards, and I wish I had his fortitude and sense of style.
I don't have big anxieties. I wish I did. I'd be much more interesting.
I have evolved my own exercises, for the muscles I wish to keep firm, and I know they are right for me because I can feel them putting the proper muscles into play as I exercise.
No self-respecting woman should wish or work for the success of a party who ignores her sex.
Susan B. Anthony
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.
Books and all forms of writing are terror to those who wish to suppress the truth.
I wanted to be the next Dana Carvey. This was my ultimate goal. If I ever cut into a birthday cake and made a wish, I would wish to be on 'Saturday Night Live.' If I threw a coin into a fountain, I would wish to be on 'Saturday Night Live.' If I saw a shooting star, I would wish to be on 'Saturday Night Live.'
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
