Quotes:

As a singer, I've had many opportunities to travel, and one thing I've learned is that through my music, I can be accepted by people all over the world. I often wonder why so many of us can't accept people who are different here, in our country? It's just not fair to be prejudiced against those whose race, religion or colour aren't the same as ours.
View quotes by Celine Dion

I look at my hands and go, 'Hmm...what happened? Whose hands are those? Oh my God, they're mine'
View quotes by Sheryl Crow

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

An intellectual is someone whose mind watches itself (Carnets)
View quotes by Albert Camus

'a country lying in the South Sea, whose industrial and commercial development has been unspeakably retarded by an unfortunate dispute among geographers as to whether it is a continent or an island'
View quotes by Ambrose Bierce

Every civilizing step in history has been ridiculed as 'sentimental', 'impractical', or 'womanish', etc., by those whose fun, profit or convenience was at stake.
View quotes by Joan Gilbert

Of man's first disobedience, and the fruit
Of that forbidden tree, whose mortal taste
Brought death into the world, and all our woe,
With loss of Eden.
View quotes by John Milton

If there ever was in the history of humanity an enemy who was truly universal, an enemy whose acts and moves trouble the entire world, threaten the entire world, attack the entire world in any way or another, that real and really universal enemy is precisely Yankee imperialism.
View quotes by Fidel Castro

The most successful men in the end are those whose success is the result of steady accretion... It is the man who carefully advances step by step, with his mind becoming wider and wider - and progressively better able to grasp any theme or situation - persevering in what he knows to be practical, and concentrating his thought upon it, who is bound to succeed in the greatest degree.
View quotes by Alexander Graham Bell

Great families of yesterday we show, And lords whose parents were the Lord knows who (The True-Born Englishman)
View quotes by Daniel Defoe

The family - that dear octopus from whose tentacles we never quite escape
View quotes by Dodie Smith

An aristocracy in a republic is like a chicken whose head has been cut off: it may run about in a lively way, but in fact it is dead. (Noblesse Oblige)
View quotes by Nancy Mitford

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

What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not been discovered.
View quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson

When a man tells you that he got rich through hard work, ask him: 'Whose?'
View quotes by Don Marquis

That man is the richest whose pleasures are the cheapest.
View quotes by Henry David Thoreau

I rank myself no higher in the scheme of things than a policeman - whose utility would disappear if there were no criminals.
View quotes by Lord Salisbury

I write about myself with the same pencil and in the same exercise book as about him. It is no longer I, but another whose life is just beginning.
View quotes by Samuel Beckett

He is greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own.
View quotes by Henry Ward Beecher

The man whose only pleasure in life is making money, weighs less on the moral scale than an angleworm.
View quotes by Josh Billings

Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died.

View quotes by Erma Bombeck

The slave has but one master, the ambitious man has as many as there are persons whose aid may contribute to the advancement of his fortunes.
View quotes by Jean De La Bruyere

He world is full of people whose notion of a satisfactory future is, in fact, a return to the idealised past.

View quotes by Robertson Davies

All experience is an arch wherethrough gleams that untravelled world whose margin fades for ever and for ever when I move.
View quotes by Alfred Lord Tennyson

I hold that gentleman to be the best-dressed whose dress no one observes.
View quotes by Anthony Trollope

Every person is responsible for all the good within the scope of his abilities, and for no more, and none can tell whose sphere is the largest.

View quotes by Robert Schuller

Revenge... is like a rolling stone, which, when a man hath forced up a hill, will return upon him with a greater violence, and break those bones whose sinews gave it motion.
View quotes by Albert Schweitzer

That old man dies prematurely whose memory records no benefits conferred. They only have lived long who have lived virtuously.
View quotes by Richard Brinsley Sheridan

They got a lot of kids now whose uniforms are so tight, especially the pants, that they cannot bend over to pick up ground balls. And they don't want to bend over in television games because in that way there is no way their face can get on the camera.
View quotes by Casey Stengel

Humanity should question itself, once more, about the absurd and always unfair phenomenon of war, on whose stage of death and pain only remain standing the negotiating table that could and should have prevented it.
