Hardly Quotes

Quote of the Day


They were so strong in their beliefs that there came a time when it hardly mattered what exactly those beliefs were; they all fused into a single stubbornness.
View quotes by Louise Erdrich

It is a fine thing to be out on the hills alone. A man can hardly be a beast or a fool alone on a great mountain.
View quotes by Francis Kilvert

In crossing a heath, suppose I pitched my foot against a stone, and were asked how the stone came to be there: I might possibly answer, that for any thing I know to the contrary, it had lain there for ever: nor would it perhaps be very easy to show the absurdity of this answer. But suppose I had found a watch upon the ground, and it should be inquired how the watch happened to be in that place; I should hardly think of the answer which I had before given, that for any thing I knew, the watch might have always been there. Yet why should not this answer serve for the watch, as well as for the stone? why is it not as admissable in the second case as in the first? For this reason, and for no other, viz., that when we come to inspect the watch, we perceive (what we could not discover in the stone) that its several parts are framed and put together for a purpose . . . This mechanism being observed . . . the inference, we think, is inevitable, that the watch must have had a maker; that there must have existed, at some time, and at some place of other, an artificer or artificers, who formed it for the purpose which we find it actually to answer; who comprehended its construction, and designed its use.
View quotes by William Paley

Since love and fear can hardly exist together, if we must choose between them, it is far safer to be feared than loved.
View quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli

Hardly a book of human worth, be it heaven's own secret, is honestly placed before the reader; it is either shunned, given a Periclean funeral oration in a hundred and fifty words, or interred in the potter's field of the newspapers back pages.
View quotes by Edward Dahlberg

We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.
View quotes by Carl Sagan

A plague on eminence! I hardly dare cross the street anymore without a convoy, and I am stared at wherever I go like an idiot member of a royal family or an animal in a zoo; and zoo animals have been known to die from stares.
View quotes by Igor Stravinsky

Without adversity a person hardly knows whether they are honest or not.
View quotes by Henry Fielding

The intelligent man finds almost everything ridiculous, the sensible man hardly anything.
View quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

You can hardly say boo to a goose in the House of Commons now without cries of 'Ungentlemanly,' 'Not fair' and all the rest.
View quotes by Harold McMillan

Life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going.
View quotes by Tennessee Williams

You see a lot of smart guys with dumb women, but you hardly ever see a smart woman with a dumb guy.
View quotes by Erica Jong

She writes like a loom, producing her broad rich fabric with hardly a thought of how it will make up into a shape, while I write to cover a frame of ideas.

Sex is full of lies. The body tries to tell the truth. But, it's usually too battered with rules to be heard, and bound with pretenses so it can hardly move. We cripple ourselves with lies.
View quotes by Jim Morrison
