Quotes:

Perhaps, after all, America never has been discovered. I myself would say that it had merely been detected. [The Picture of Dorian Gray, 1891]
View quotes by Oscar Wilde

I'll just be sitting down having dinner with girlfriends or something and people come up and ruin the dinner - [perhaps why fans have called her snotty, cold and stuck up]
View quotes by Holly Valance

Perhaps it is impossible for a person who does no good to do no harm.
View quotes by Harriet Beecher Stowe

'I am part man, part cyborg. You'd be surprised at the parts I've had inserted in me. Perhaps that's why I walk a little stiffly.'
View quotes by Graham Norton

'I feel close to the rebelliousness and vigour of the youth here. Perhaps time will separate us, but nobody can deny that here, behind the windows of Manchester, there is an insane love of football, of celebration and of music.'
View quotes by Eric Cantona

Human beings are perhaps never more frightening than when they are convinced beyond doubt that they are right.
View quotes by Laurens Van Der Post

Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.
View quotes by Winston Churchill

Perhaps when we find ourselves wanting everything it is because we are dangerously near to wanting nothing.
View quotes by Sylvia Plath

Perhaps the rare and simple pleasure of being seen for what one is compensates for the misery of being it (A Summer Bird-Cage)
View quotes by Margaret Drabble

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

Certainly in the next 50 years we shall see a woman president, perhaps sooner than you think. A woman can and should be able to do any political job that a man can do.
View quotes by Richard Nixon

Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not.
View quotes by Thomas Huxley

Perhaps in time the so-called Dark Ages will be thought of as including our own.
View quotes by Georg Lichtenberg

Politics is perhaps the only profession for which no preparation is thought necessary.
View quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.
View quotes by Henry David Thoreau

I tried to keep both arts alive, but the camera won. I found that while the camera does not express the soul, perhaps a photograph can!
View quotes by Ansel Adams

Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.
View quotes by Maya Angelou

Love, by its very nature, is unworldly, and it is for this reason rather than its rarity that it is not only apolitical but anti-political, perhaps the most powerful of all anti-political human forces.
View quotes by Hannah Arendt

Perhaps there are none more lazy, or more truly ignorant, than your everlasting readers.
View quotes by Marcus Aurelius

Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have.
View quotes by James Baldwin

Personally I have no bone to pick with graveyards, I take the air there willingly, perhaps more willingly than elsewhere, when take the air I must.
View quotes by Samuel Beckett

Every great mistake has a halfway moment, a split second when it can be recalled and perhaps remedied.
View quotes by Pearl Buck

But words are things, and a small drop of ink
Falling like dew, upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.
View quotes by Lord Byron

For if there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life.
View quotes by Albert Camus

Virtue, perhaps, is nothing more than politeness of soul.
View quotes by Honore De Balzac

Equality may perhaps be a right, but no power on earth can ever turn it into a fact.
View quotes by Honore De Balzac

Pornography is rather like trying to find out about a Beethoven symphony by having somebody tell you about it and perhaps hum a few bars.
View quotes by Robertson Davies

I don't believe a committee can write a book. It can, oh, govern a country, perhaps, but I don't believe it can write a book.
View quotes by Arnold Toynbee

He must have known me if he had seen me as he was wont to see me, for he was in the habit of flogging me constantly. Perhaps he did not recognize me by my face.
View quotes by Anthony Trollope

I have always felt that a woman has the right to treat the subject of her age with ambiguity until, perhaps, she passes into the realm of over ninety. Then it is better she be candid with herself and with the world.
View quotes by Carl Sandburg
