Quotes:

Britney's a really cool girl, We were really close back when we were on the Mickey Mouse Club, and even watching her in interviews I find myself missing her lately. I'm really proud of her, how far she's come and what she's been able to accomplish. And to keep it together: It's so crazy out on the road. I gotta give her credit for not just going berserk and letting everybody get to her. I just passed on my number to her through somebody. It's good to have friends in the business who know what you're going through.
View quotes by Christina Aguilera

It is not the critic who counts. Not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause. Who at the best, knows in the end the trimph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, at least falls while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
View quotes by Theodore Roosevelt

"People give us credit only for what we ourselves believe."
View quotes by Fay Weldon

Wrinkles are hereditary. Parents get them from their children.
View quotes by Doris Day

From the 1963 edition of Fielding's Guide to Europe:
As a member of an escorted tour, you don't even have to know that the Matterhorn isn't a tuba
View quotes by Temple Fielding

When great changes occur in history, when great principles are involved, as a rule the majority are wrong. The minority are right. (Speech at his trial for sedition in Cleveland 1918)
View quotes by Eugene Victor Debs

In science the credit goes to the man who convinces the world, not to the man to whom the idea first occurs.
View quotes by Sir Francis Darwin

An empty book is like an infant's soul, in which anything may be written. It is capable of all things, but containeth nothing (Centuries of Meditation)
View quotes by Thomas Traherne

The singeing of the King of Spain's Beard. (of the expedition to Cadiz)
View quotes by Francis Drake

The world is divided into people who do things and people who get the credit. Try, if you can, to belong to the first class. There's far less competition.
View quotes by Dwight Morrow

Editor: a person employed by a newspaper, whose business it is to separate the wheat from the chaff, and to see that the chaff is printed.
View quotes by Elbert Hubbard

I can honestly say to you, slaves of the press, that if I had as many love affairs as you have given me credit for, I would now be speaking to you from a jar at the Harvard Medical School.
View quotes by Frank Sinatra

Anyone nit-picking enough to write a letter of correction to an editor doubtless deserves the error that provoked it.
View quotes by Alvin Toffler

I've never canceled a subscription to a newspaper because of bad cartoons or editorials. If that were the case, I wouldn't have any newspapers or magazines to read.
View quotes by Richard Nixon

Some editors are failed writers, but so are most writers.
View quotes by T S Eliot

Never be entirely idle; but either be reading, or writing, or praying or meditating or endeavoring something for the public good.
View quotes by Thomas A Kempis

The difference between a moral man and a man of honour is that the latter regrets a discreditable act, even when it has worked and he has not been caught.
View quotes by Henry L Mencken

When we are planning for posterity, we ought to remember that virtue is not hereditary.
View quotes by Thomas Paine

Critics search for ages for the wrong word, which, to give them credit, they eventually find.

Optimism: The doctrine that everything is beautiful, including what is ugly, everything good, especially the bad, and everything right that is wrong... It is hereditary, but fortunately not contagious.
View quotes by Ambrose Bierce

Saint: A dead sinner revised and edited.
View quotes by Ambrose Bierce

This is my ultimate fantasy: watching QVC with a credit card while making love and eating at the same time.
View quotes by Yasmine Bleeth

When women love us, they forgive us everything, even our crimes; when they do not love us, they give us credit for nothing, not even our virtues.
View quotes by Honore De Balzac

He types his laboured column - weary drudge! Senile fudge and solemn: spare, editor, to condemn these dry leaves of his autumn.
View quotes by Robertson Davies

No man's credit is as good as his money.
View quotes by John Dewey

It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
View quotes by Harry S Truman

A celibate clergy is an especially good idea, because it tends to suppress any hereditary propensity toward fanaticism.
View quotes by Carl Sagan

Teach you children poetry; it opens the mind, lends grace to wisdom and makes the heroic virtues hereditary.
View quotes by Sir Walter Scott

The most threatened group in human societies as in animal societies is the unmated male: the unmated male is more likely to wind up in prison or in an asylum or dead than his mated counterpart. He is less likely to be promoted at work and he is considered a poor credit risk.

Ability is the art of getting credit for all the home runs somebody else hits.
