If you are not too long, I will wait here for you all my life.

Oscar Wilde

When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.

Alexander Graham Bell

No good movie is too long and no bad movie is short enough.

Roger Ebert

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

It is not long in historical terms since Christian priests were burning people at the stake if they did not believe that wine turns to blood when a priest prays over it, and that the earth sits immovably at the universe`s centre, or [...] since they were whipping people and slitting their noses and ears for having sex outside marriage [...]. To this day adulterers are stoned to death in certain Muslim countries; if the priests were still on top in the once-Christian world, who can say it would be different?

A. C. Grayling

I believe that if, at the end of it all, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn`t always know this, and am happy I lived long enough to find it out.

Roger Ebert

Lisa Cimorelli

Emily Deschanel

The difference between successful people and others is how long they spend time feeling sorry for themselves.

Barbara Corcoran

There is nothing wrong with being scared [...] so long as you don`t let it change who you are.

ParaNorman (movie)

Most people don`t care if you`re telling them the truth or if you`re telling them a lie, as long as they`re entertained by it.

Tom Waits

I`ve lived long enough to know that any promise made beside the word "forever" is no more than a lie agreed upon. There is no forever. Everything moves towards its end. And the closer we get to ours, the louder that clock ticks, the less a sane man would let a promise deprive him of happiness.

Black Sails (movie)

With kids, the days are long, but the years are short.

John Leguizamo

Our present swarms with traces of our past. We are histories of ourselves, narratives. I am not this momentary mass of flesh reclined on the sofa typing the letter a on my laptop; I am my thoughts full of the traces of the phrases that I am writing; I am my mother`s caresses, and the serene kindness with which my father calmly guided me; I am my adolescent travels; I am what my reading has deposited in layers in my mind; I am my loves, my moments of despair, my friendships, what I`ve written, what I`ve heard; the faces engraved on my memory. I am, above all, the one who a minute ago made a cup of tea for himself. The one who a moment ago typed the word "memory" into his computer. The one who just composed the sentence that I am now completing. If all this disappeared, would I still exist? I am this long, ongoing novel. My life consists of it.

Carlo Rovelli

A terminal cancer patient`s unbearable pain is pointless; it`s as if one were to drive the dead to the cemetery in an ambulance with flashing lights and screaming sirens. Pain makes sense only as long as recovery is possible.

Peter Noll
