Quotes:

Between two evils, I always pick the one I haven't tried before
View quotes by Mae West

'I ain't no saint, but I've tried never to do anything that would hurt my family or offend God... I figure all any kid needs is hope and the feeling he or she belongs. If I could do or say anything that would give some kid that feeling, I would believe I had contributed something to the world.'
View quotes by Elvis Presley

"I was a bookworm, and very skinny with big, thick glasses. I never went on dates and guys were afraid of me because I was smart. So I got contact lenses, started to dress a little better and tried not to talk about Plato with boys. It worked!"
View quotes by Julianne Moore

Ever tried? Ever failed? No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.
View quotes by Samuel Beckett

The Govenment has tried everything to solve the problem of the coal industry - semi-starvation, imprisonment, extortion, threats, the supplication of the miner's leaders, and what is the almost omnipotence of Churchill's oratory. All have failed. There is one thing they have not tried. They haven't tried getting rid of the coal owners. For the one truth the Government has not yet learned is .... you can get coal without the coal owners, but you can't get coal without miners.
View quotes by Aneurin Bevan

Sometimes I think that the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.

The hero of my tale - whom I love with all the power of my soul, whom I have tried to portray in all his beauty, who has been, is, and will be beautiful - is Truth (Sevastopol in May)
View quotes by Leo Tolstoy

'Me and Justin are not dating. I don't have a boyfriend. I am an independent woman' - Britney tried to convince everyone she wasn't dating Justin, during a time when she was!
View quotes by Britney Spears

I have tried too in my time to be a philosopher; but, I don't know how, cheerfulness was always breaking in. (In James Boswell Life of Samuel Johnson)
View quotes by Oliver Edwards

I've always tried to mix up my roles as much as I can
View quotes by Jeff Bridges

I tried to walk a line between acting lawfully and testifying falsely, but I now realize that I did not fully accomplish that goal.
View quotes by Bill Clinton

I tried being reasonable, I didn't like it.
View quotes by Clint Eastwood

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

If at first you don't succeed, remove all evidence that you tried.
View quotes by David Brent

If a playwright tried to see eye to eye with everybody, he would get the worst case of strabismus since Hannibal lost an eye trying to count his nineteen elephants during a snowstorm while crossing the Alps.
View quotes by James Thurber

When I wake up in the morning, I just can't get started until I've had that first, piping hot pot of coffee. Oh, I've tried other enemas...
View quotes by Emo Philips

I always tried to turn every disaster into an opportunity.

View quotes by John D Rockefeller

Like the old soldier of the ballad, I now close my military career and just fade away, an old soldier who tried to do his duty as God gave him the light to see that duty. Goodbye.
View quotes by Douglas Macarthur

Old soldiers never die; they just fade away. And like the old soldier in that ballad, I now close my military career and just fade away, an old soldier who tried to do his duty as God gave him the sight to see that duty.
View quotes by Douglas Macarthur

And like the old soldier in that ballad, I now close my military career and just fade away, an old soldier who tried to do his duty as God gave him the sight to see that duty.
View quotes by Douglas Macarthur

I have always tried to hide my efforts and wished my works to have the light joyousness of springtime which never lets anyone suspect the labors it has cost me.
View quotes by Henri Matisse

The negative cautions of science are never popular. If the experimentalist would not commit himself, the social philosopher, the preacher, and the pedagogue tried the harder to give a short-cut answer.
View quotes by Margaret Mead

If I have any justification for having lived it's simply, I'm nothing but faults, failures and so on, but I have tried to make a good pair of shoes. There's some value in that.
View quotes by Arthur Miller

I may be revered or defamed and decried; But I tried to live my life right.
View quotes by Tracy Chapman

I heard someone tried the monkeys-on-typewriters bit trying for the plays of W. Shakespeare, but all they got was the collected works of Francis Bacon.
View quotes by Bill Hirst

Heroin on any basis is a worse drug, a more dangerous drug than cannabis, but heroin in its pharmaceutical preparation, diamorphine, is available on prescription for people in pain and it's very widely prescribed.
So the law does not say that, because a drug is classed as illegal it therefore should not be available on prescription. What it does say, however, is that before drugs are available on prescription they've got to be properly tested and reearched. Not that that's happened to a lot of opiates, heroin and cocain derivatives.
So far the medical researchers have not been able to prove, indeed very few have tried, that there are real beneficial medicinal effects from cannabis.
View quotes by Jack Straw

A woman mistook me for Brando. I [tried to] dissuade her but she kept coming back insisting I was Brando.
View quotes by Burt Reynolds

We didn't bowl well. The guys knew the plan, but the harder they tried, the less they seemed to land it in the right areas.
View quotes by Duncan Fletcher

It is worth it to me to know I have succeeded based on my abilities and not on my looks or any 'connections.' I've tried not to embody destructive female images in my work.
View quotes by Ally Sheedy

I've never really tried to prove myself... I don't think I am like a great actress. I think I am working towards trying to be better.
View quotes by Alison Eastwood
