Longer - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

One of the big reliefs for the atheist is not having to worry about what to hope, wish, and pray for. Did I want to pray for my mother`s suffering to end? Did I want to hope for her death? I didn`t have to worry about that. I could hope one day that she`d live longer so I could talk to her, and wish the next day that she would die and not have to suffer her paralysis and physical loss any longer. My wishing and hoping were inert; I could let them run wild. I could use them as pure solace.

Penn Jillette

Mirrors should think longer before they reflect.

Jean Cocteau

If an idea is not taken up and used as a solution to a problem it has no value. It becomes a non-idea. Lying in a drawer it is useless. Worse than useless, it’s a complete waste of space. Ideas have to be applied before they are recognized as good ideas. Even a bad idea executed Is better than a good idea undone. The longer it is used the better the idea is considered to be. That is why the wheel is reckoned to be the best idea ever.

Paul Arden

It may be when we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work, and that when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey.

Wendell Berry

I love you... like the day is long! I love you more than the sun and the moon together. And if you feel the same way, then we should not hide it any longer.

The Village (movie)

I do come home at Christmas. We all do, or we all should. We all come home, or ought to come home, for a short holiday - the longer, the better - from the great boarding school where we are forever working at our arithmetical slates, to take, and give a rest.

Charles Dickens

One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth.

Carl Sagan

Never think of pain or danger or enemies a moment longer than is necessary to fight them.

Ayn Rand

If a child is old enough to be sent on errands without supervision, he`s not totally a child any longer.

Stephen King

And pray that I may forget
These matters that with myself I too much discuss
Too much explain
Because I do not hope to turn again
Let these words answer
For what is done, not to be done again
May the judgement not be too heavy upon us

Because these wings are no longer wings to fly
But merely vans to beat the air
The air which is now thoroughly small and dry
Smaller and dryer than the will
Teach us to care and not to care
Teach us to sit still.

T. S. Eliot

Because I do not hope to turn again
Because I do not hope
Because I do not hope to turn
Desiring this man`s gift and that man`s scope
I no longer strive to strive towards such things.

T. S. Eliot

Everything is possible. The impossible just takes longer.

Dan Brown

The moment God is figured out with nice neat lines and definitions, we are no longer dealing with God.

Rob Bell

Behind every kiss looms the secret desire for annihilation, for an ultimate happiness that is no longer in the mood for argument but knows that to be happy is to cease entirely and surrender to feeling.

Sándor Márai

I love my past. I love my present. I`m not ashamed of what I`ve had, and I`m not sad because I have it no longer.

Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette
