There is no disguise which can hide love for long where it exists, or simulate it where it does not.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
I'm the type who'd be happy not going anywhere as long as I was sure I knew exactly what was happening at the places I wasn't going to. I'm the type who'd like to sit home and watch every party that I'm invited to on a monitor in my bedroom.
Being healthy is a complete lifestyle for me. It allows my brain to function at a very high degree so I can comprehend all the new things that are thrown at me. It also allows me to sleep well so that I am rested when I need to perform. Finally, being healthy will hopefully allow me to live a long and fun-filled life.
It is difficult to violently suppress people in the long run, as the example of the Soviet Union and the Eastern European countries has shown.

Frederick William Faber
The way I feel today, as long as my health is good and I can handle myself well and people still come to my concerts, still buy my CDs, I'll keep playing until I feel like I can't.
B. B. King
It was the noise Of ancient trees falling while all was still Before the storm, in the long interval Between the gathering clouds and that light breeze Which Germans call the Wind's bride.
Charles Godfrey Leland
The work of Nigeria is not complete for as long as there is any one Nigerian who goes to bed on empty stomach.
There's nothing wrong with material things as long as you don't lie, cheat and steal.
Long stormy spring-time, wet contentious April, winter chilling the lap of very May; but at length the season of summer does come.

A horse is a thing of beauty... none will tire of looking at him as long as he displays himself in his splendor.
A man will be imprisoned in a room with a door that's unlocked and opens inwards; as long as it does not occur to him to pull rather than push.
I learned a long time ago the wisest thing I can do is be on my own side, be an advocate for myself and others like me.
A simple compliment goes a really long way - for a guy to just come over and say, 'You have great hair' or 'I really like your dress,' and then just smile and walk away.

So long as the system of competition in the production and exchange of the means of life goes on, the degradation of the arts will go on; and if that system is to last for ever, then art is doomed, and will surely die; that is to say, civilization will die.
