Second - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

We can start over. Every day, we get second chances to become who we always wanted to be. We can leave our past behind or we can learn from it and honor it. We can decide. It`s never too late to change.

Grey`s Anatomy (movie)

Life is the first gift, love is the second, and understanding the third.

Marge Piercy

You might get one job for having a famous parent, but you won`t get your second unless you`re good.

Linus Roache

The motives by which we act are inscribed in our intimate structure as mammals, as hunters, as social beings: reason illuminates these connections, it does not generate them. We are not, in the first place, reasoning beings. We may perhaps become so, more or less, in the second. In the first instance, we are driven by a thirst for life, by hunger, by the need to love, by the instinct to find our place in human society... The second instance does not even exist without the first. Reason arbitrates between instincts but uses the very same instincts as primary criteria in its arbitration.

Carlo Rovelli

Alcohol is like love. The first kiss is magic, the second is intimate, the third is routine.

Raymond Chandler

Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognized. In the first, it is ridiculed, in the second it is opposed, in the third it is regarded as self-evident.

Arthur Schopenhauer

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.

Albert Camus

It says here the retail industry does 50% of its business between December 1st and December 25th. That's half a year's business in one month's time.

Reindeer Games (movie)

There are two ways to do great mathematics. The first is to be smarter than everybody else. The second way is to be stupider than everybody else - but persistent.

Raoul Bott

We humans have two great problems: the first is knowing when to begin; the second is knowing when to stop.

Paulo Coelho

Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.

Paulo Coelho

They say that in the second before our death, each of us understands the real reason for our existence, and out of that moment, Heaven or Hell is born. Hell is when we look back during that fraction of a second and know that we wasted an opportunity to dignify the miracle of life. Paradise is being able to say at that moment: "I made some mistakes, but I wasn`t a coward. I lived my life and did what I had to do."

Paulo Coelho

For a moment, nothing happened. Then, after a second or so, nothing continued to happen.

Douglas Adams

To forget the dead would be akin to killing them a second time.

Elie Wiesel
