Ask yourself whether you are happy and you cease to be so.

John Stuart Mill

If you want to know where the power lies, then ask whom you cannot criticize.

Kevin Alfred Strom

Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take time to go to a restaurant two times a week. A little candlelight, dinner, soft music and dancing. She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays.

Henny Youngman

You ask me what I want this year, And I try to make this kind and clear Just a chance that maybe we`ll find better days Cause I don`t need boxes wrapped in strings And designer love and empty things. Just a chance that maybe we`ll find better days

Goo Goo Dolls

People ask me what I do in winter when there`s no baseball. I`ll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.

Rogers Hornsby

I`m angry that when people run for political office in the United States, it`s considered legitimate to grill them about their employment background, their positions on legislation, their positions on social issues, the taxes they`ve paid [...]... but it`s considered invasive and intolerant to ask if they believe in talking snakes, demonic possession, magic underwear, magic crackers that turn into the flesh of their god, an Earth that was created 6,000 years ago, or a god who put himself on Earth in human form and then sacrificed himself to himself to atone for sins that other people committed and to save humanity from the punishment he himself was planning to dole out. If someone is going to make decisions about science funding, emerging medical technology, our educational system, and so on... I think it matters if they believe any of that shit, and I bloody well want to know about it.

Greta Christina

If you genuinely loved God, wouldn`t you want to understand him as best you can? When faced with different ideas about God, wouldn`t you want to ask some questions, and look at the supporting evidence for the different views, and try to figure out which one is probably true? Doesn`t it seem insulting to God to treat that question as if it didn`t matter? There are profound differences between religions. They are not trivial. And the different religions cannot all be right. (Although, as atheists like to point out, they can all be wrong.)

Greta Christina

I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it`s such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her.

Ellen DeGeneres

You have to ask yourself, why is there political correctness? The only answer is because you`re afraid to say what you honestly believe.

Kurt Russell

You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.

Oprah Winfrey

Stand in the ashes of a trillion dead souls and ask the ghosts if honor matters. The silence is your answer.

Mass Effect

If you show somebody a piece of your work and you ask them ‘What do you think? ’, they will probably say it’s okay because they don’t want to offend you. Next time, instead of asking if it’s right, ask them what’s wrong. They may not say what you want to hear, but the chances are they will give you a truthful criticism. Truth hurts, but in the long run it’s better than a pat on the back.

Paul Arden

Ideas are like seeds: they are abundant, and most of them never grow into anything. Also, ideas are seldom original. Ask several independent groups to brainstorm on the same topic at the same time, and you will likely get many of the same ideas. This is not a limitation of brainstorming; it is true of all creation. Because everything arises from steps, not leaps, most things are invented in several places simultaneously when different people walk the same path, each unaware of the others.

Kevin Ashton

Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.

Deepak Chopra

When we ask advice, we are usually looking for an accomplice.

Joseph-Louis Lagrange
