Society likes to file you away, put you in this or that category. And I never fit any category.

And I

It is practically infallible, since

She flew at Harriet and tore the flowers from her hair and scratched her face. Harriet, too dazed to defend herself, reeled back.

You have given Arden such aMarion Chesney Agnes's Sayings By Marion Chesney: She flew at Harriet and tore the flowers from her hair and scratched her face.
Agnes subtracts from her self everything that is exterior and borrowed, in order to come closer to her sheer essence (even with the risk that zero lurks at the bottom of the subtraction). Laura's method is precisely the opposite: in order to make her self ever more visible, perceivable, seizable, sizeable, she keeps adding to it more and more attributes and she attempts to identify herself with them (with the risk that the essence of the self may be buried by the additional attributes).Milan Kundera Agnes's Sayings By Milan Kundera: Agnes subtracts from her self everything that is exterior and borrowed, in order to come
Gleaning is getting things that are abandoned. I did not abandon my early pictures, my photos, my early films. It's just going through my body of work as something I can pick from.Agnes Varda Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Varda: Gleaning is getting things that are abandoned. I did not abandon my early pictures, my
The road was called Agnes weeps, after the town's first schoolteacher, who had burst into tears when she saw how plunging and twisting the road was and realized how remote the town must be. But from the first moment I laid eyes on it, I loved that road. I thought of it as a winding staircase taking me out of the traffic jams, news bulletins, bureaucrats, air-raid sirens and locked doors of city life. Jim said we should rename the road Lilly sings.Jeannette Walls Agnes's Sayings By Jeannette Walls: The road was called Agnes weeps, after the town's first schoolteacher, who had burst into
[Pablo] Picasso really changed my life. It's strange to say so, but I started to see some Picasso paintings very early. I was very young, and he was not so much known.Agnes Varda Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Varda: [Pablo] Picasso really changed my life. It's strange to say so, but I started to
Kneeling on St. Mary's stone floor she had envisioned the candles and the cold, but not Lady Imeyne, waiting for Roche to make a mistake in the mass, not Eliwys or Gawyn or Rosemund. Not Father Roche, with his cutthroat's face and worn-out hose.

She could never in a hundred years, in seven hundred and thirty-four years, have imagined Agnes, with her puppy and her naughty tantrums, and her infected knee. I'm glad I came, she thought. In spite of everything.
Connie Willis Agnes's Sayings By Connie Willis: Kneeling on St. Mary's stone floor she had envisioned the candles and the cold, but

What does it mean when you hook up your work to that of a late modernist giant working in a reductive vein - Ad Reinhardt, Agnes Martin, Robert Ryman, Ellsworth Kelly, Frank Stella, or Donald Judd, for example - like a caboose? I am not talking about engaging directly with another artist's work or ideas, but of perpetuating a look or, in the case of Wade Guyton, the various monochromatic, striped and geometric surfaces we associate with Minimalism.John Yau Agnes's Sayings By John Yau: What does it mean when you hook up your work to that of a late
When I started my first film, there were three women directors in France. Their films were OK, but I was different. It's like when you start to jump and you put the pole very high - you have to jump very high. I thought, I have to use cinema as a language.Agnes Varda Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Varda: When I started my first film, there were three women directors in France. Their films

They understand me through my films; it's like a connection that
I used to get very nervous before a concert. It's okay when you are in a band. You can kind of disappear. But when it's just you ... yes, that was difficult. I would not say it is easy now. But when you do it for a long time, you do learn to cope.Agnes Obel Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Obel: I used to get very nervous before a concert. It's okay when you are in

When the desire ain't on me I don't need help. When it is on me I don't want any. See? Like the old fellah that never mended his roof.

When it is on me

It happens on one's feet after hours of work, and

It's unbelievable. The film critics
When I started I did not know I wanted to be a filmmaker. I started - I made a film. Then when I finished I said, Oh my god it's so beautiful - I should be a filmmaker!Agnes Varda Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Varda: When I started I did not know I wanted to be a filmmaker. I started
I see all these students, and I admire them - they're trying to learn something, they go to school, they do film school, they go on shoots, they help. I'm sure they learn a lot, and some of them, it makes them aware of what they wish to do. I was - that's the way I was - autodidact.Agnes Varda Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Varda: I see all these students, and I admire them - they're trying to learn something,

I return to the sprinklers and sit down. George plunks down next to me. "Did you know that a bird-eating tarantula is as big as your hand?"
"Jase doesn't have one of those, does he?"
George gives me his sunniest smile. "No. He useta have a reg'lar tarantula named Agnes, but she" - his voice drops mournfully - "died."
"I'm sure she's in tarantula heaven now," I assure him hastily, shuddering to think what that might look like.
Mrs. Garret's van pulls in behind the motorcycle, disgorging what I assume are Duff and Andy, both red-faced and windblown. Judging by their life jackets, they've been at sailing camp.
George and Harry, my loyal fans, rave to their mother about my accomplishments, while Patsy immediately bursts into tears, points an accusing finger at her mother, and wails, "Boob."
"It was her first word." Mrs. Garret takes her from me, heedless of Patsy's damp swimsuit. "There's one for the baby book.
Huntley Fitzpatrick Agnes's Sayings By Huntley Fitzpatrick: I return to the sprinklers and sit down. George plunks down next to me. "Did
Sometimes I want to work with a DP, sometimes I want to work myself. I go to 35mm, 16mm, it's all the same, but it depends on what you want to tell and what are the tools you need.Agnes Varda Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Varda: Sometimes I want to work with a DP, sometimes I want to work myself. I

There's no "magic secret"; writing is like everything else; ten percent inspiration or talent, and ninety percent hard work. Persistence; keeping at it till you get there. As Agnes de Mille said, it means working every day - bored, tired, weary, or with a fever of a hundred and two.Marion Zimmer Bradley Agnes's Sayings By Marion Zimmer Bradley: There's no "magic secret"; writing is like everything else; ten percent inspiration or talent, and

You really can't get a word in edgeways.Agnes Sligh Turnbull Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Sligh Turnbull: Burning logs can carry on quite a conversation! ... Have you ever heard apple wood
William Carlos Williams? "This Is Just to Say" - yes, Dabney had always loved that poem. In the years of Agnes's growing up, a copy of the poem had been taped to the refrigerator door. It was an apology poem - forgive me, they were delicious, so sweet and so cold. Box was holding out the plum and a bottle of chilled Perrier with a silly grin on his face. CelerieElin Hilderbrand Agnes's Sayings By Elin Hilderbrand: William Carlos Williams? "This Is Just to Say" - yes, Dabney had always loved that
Adam lived in an apartment located above the office of St. Agnes Catholic Church, a fortuitous combination that focused most of the objects of Ronan's worship into one downtown block.Maggie Stiefvater Agnes's Sayings By Maggie Stiefvater: Adam lived in an apartment located above the office of St. Agnes Catholic Church, a

The fatigue of the climb was great but it is interesting to learn once more how much further one can go on one's second wind. I think that is an important lesson for everyone to learn for it should also be applied to one's mental efforts. Most people go through life without ever discovering the existance of that whole field of endeavor which we describe as second wind. Whether mentally or physically occupied most people give up at the first appearance of exhaustion. Thus they never learn the glory and the exhilaration of genuine effort ...Agnes Elizabeth Nee Ernst Meyer Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Elizabeth Nee Ernst Meyer: The fatigue of the climb was great but it is interesting to learn once more
We all saw it, and he did the same thing we all did - we pretended it was none of our business and that it would go away on its own. We told ourselves we were just seeing a tiny piece of Agnes's life. And if you only get a small piece of something, it's much easier to convince yourself it's better when you're not around, and then choose to ignore it.Roseanne Cheng Agnes's Sayings By Roseanne Cheng: We all saw it, and he did the same thing we all did - we

Agnes. Don't pretend you disagree. This is all there is and you know it. Life, here, in our veins.

This is all there is and you know it. Life,
There is a song of Gainsbourg that Jane Birkin sang, and the words are beautiful in French. It says, "Le jeu et les moi." It's impossible to translate, because it has a very nice sound. It sounds so lovely in French. So I took that because it was the subject: I and myself and myself and I. Which is, in a way, boring, because it is a contradiction.Agnes Varda Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Varda: There is a song of Gainsbourg that Jane Birkin sang, and the words are beautiful
Anne's is a world very like this one, and you can move about in it with familiarity - but not freedom: it is a place of rigorous consequence, where the weak have to give way to the strong, where her governess heroine Agnes must walk as best she can in the cold shade of money and masculinity.Jude Morgan Agnes's Sayings By Jude Morgan: Anne's is a world very like this one, and you can move about in it
Carpe Jugulum," read Agnes aloud. "That's ... well, Carpe Diem is 'Sieze the Day,' so this means-"

If we could make up our minds to spare our friends all details of ill health, of money losses, of domestic annoyances, of altercations, of committee work, of grievances, provocations, and anxieties, we should sin less against the world's good-humor. It may not be given us to add to the treasury of mirth; but there is considerable merit in not robbing it.Agnes Repplier Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Repplier: If we could make up our minds to spare our friends all details of ill
Those Puritans would spice the Gallic stew of upper Maine for years, causing no end of trouble to Agnes, who, to be fair, was a witch and a succubus and everything else they ever called her, but that's no excuse for being such poor neighbors, when you think about it.Catherynne M Valente Agnes's Sayings By Catherynne M Valente: Those Puritans would spice the Gallic stew of upper Maine for years, causing no end
Doing what you were born to do ... That's the way to be happy.Agnes Martin Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Martin: Doing what you were born to do ... That's the way to be happy.

[On religion:] Wasn't it invented by man for a kind of solace? It's as though he had said, 'I'll make me a nice comfortable garment to shut out the heat and the cold,' and then it ends by becoming a strait-jacket.Agnes Sligh Turnbull Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Sligh Turnbull: [On religion:] Wasn't it invented by man for a kind of solace? It's as though

More and more do I see that only a successful revolution in India can break England's back forever and free Europe itself. It is not a national question concerning India any longer; it is purely international.Agnes Smedley Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Smedley: More and more do I see that only a successful revolution in India can break
It's not about facts, it's about feelings. It's about remembering feelings and happiness. A definition of art is that it makes concrete our most subtle emotions. I think the highest form of art is music. It's the most abstract of all art expression.Agnes Martin Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Martin: It's not about facts, it's about feelings. It's about remembering feelings and happiness. A definition
One thing that's paramount in my life is that I am alone. I'm a loner. And yet I have many friends and I don't feel lonely. And I even like my own company. But when I'm alone, it's to read or write. I'm in my thoughts. Mostly I'm learning.Agnes Denes Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Denes: One thing that's paramount in my life is that I am alone. I'm a loner.
On-yez, where are you from, dear?' asked a black-slacked, frosted-haired woman whose skin was papery and melanomic with suntan. 'Originally.' She eyed Agnes's outfit as if it might be what in fact it was: a couple of blue things purchased in a department store in Cedar Rapids.
Where am I from?' Agnes said it softly. 'Iowa.' She had a tendency not to speak up.
Where?' the woman scowled, bewildered.
Iowa,' Agnes repeated loudly.
The woman in black touched Agnes's wrist and leaned in confidentially. She moved her mouth in a concerned and exaggerated way, like an exercise. 'No, dear,' she said. 'Here we say O-hi-o.
Lorrie Moore Agnes's Sayings By Lorrie Moore: On-yez, where are you from, dear?' asked a black-slacked, frosted-haired woman whose skin was papery
Our children, Edward, Agnes, and little Mary, promise well; their education, for the time being, is chiefly committed to me; and they shall want no good thing that a mother's care can give.
Our modest income is amply sufficient for our requirements; and by practising the economy we learnt in harder times, and never attempting to imitate our richer neighbours, we manage not only to enjoy comfort and contentment ourselves, but to have every year something to lay by for our children, and something to give to those who need it.
And now I think I have said sufficient.
Anne Bronte Agnes's Sayings By Anne Bronte: Our children, Edward, Agnes, and little Mary, promise well; their education, for the time being,

Two years ago, she had inherited The Milked Duck Ice Cream Shoppe in downtown Bliss from Great Aunt Agnes. After getting
her degree in sociology and then bouncing around the country, waffling from job to job and one relative's couch to another, she'd finally found where she fit: creating and serving happiness to the locals and the destination wedding tourists in Bliss.
Jamie Farrell Agnes's Sayings By Jamie Farrell: Two years ago, she had inherited The Milked Duck Ice Cream Shoppe in downtown Bliss
Life is so full of miseries, minor and major; they press so close upon us at every step of the way, that it is hardly worthwhile to call one another's attention to their presence.Agnes Repplier Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Repplier: Life is so full of miseries, minor and major; they press so close upon us

Aunt Agnes said, "It's hard to make a good Christian out of a cat.Richard Peck Agnes's Sayings By Richard Peck: Aunt Agnes said, "It's hard to make a good Christian out of a cat.
When it comes time for punishment for our sins, surely it's only the person who's done wrong who's expected to pay?"

He turned his head, ice crystals caught in his hair. "Agnes. Don't pretend you disagree. This is all there is and you know it. Life, here, in our veins. There is the snow, and the sky, and the stars and the things they tell us, and that's all. Everyone else - they're blind. They don't know if they're living or dead.Hannah Kent Agnes's Sayings By Hannah Kent: He turned his head, ice crystals caught in his hair. "Agnes. Don't pretend you disagree.
When he looked up she was smiling, that flagstone-cracking beam of a smile that had always made her look twenty years younger. Agnes's smile wasn't the kind of smile that the regular world would associate with the word "nun." It was a smile that had always contained a touch of mischief, and also a terrible rage, kept in check until it was needed. This was what had enabled her to sustain the Home, and her many other projects, in the face of opposition from the Vatican on down. The smile and the rage.Terry Pratchett Agnes's Sayings By Terry Pratchett: When he looked up she was smiling, that flagstone-cracking beam of a smile that had
I study what I work with. I studied all these different fields of science that I needed for my work. I studied how to mine a landfill and what to plant in it. It's fascinating because you learn a new field each time.Agnes Denes Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Denes: I study what I work with. I studied all these different fields of science that
I don't believe in influence. I think that in order to be an artist, you have to move. When you stop moving, then you're no longer an artist. And if you move from somebody else's position, you simply cannot know the next step. I think that everyone is on his own line. I think that after you've made one step, the next step reveals itself. I believe that you were born on this line. I don't say that the actual footsteps were marked before you get to them, and I don't say that change isn't possible in your course. But I do believe we unfold out of ourselves, and we do what we are born to do sooner or later, anyway.Agnes Martin Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Martin: I don't believe in influence. I think that in order to be an artist, you
I never fought, I never learned kung fu or boxing, I never went into these sportif competitions. I wouldn't cross the ocean. I think it's ridiculous to take such risk. But look, people love to do that. But I was not afraid of doing things I wished to do. I did not think that woman would be restrained. I never saw that, especially not in filmmaking, where you don't have to be strong.Agnes Varda Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Varda: I never fought, I never learned kung fu or boxing, I never went into these
On the last album, I didn't want to disturb the melody with too many stories. This time, I wanted to know if I was able to create images with words, with the sound of words.( ... ) I think that's a good thing when the one who is listening, is feeling it in a different way that the one who creates. We are all listening with different perspectives.( ... ) I don't want to impose my subjectivity to the listener.Agnes Obel Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Obel: On the last album, I didn't want to disturb the melody with too many stories.
It's interesting work for me to tell my life, as a possibility for other people to relate it to themselves - not so much to learn about me.Agnes Varda Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Varda: It's interesting work for me to tell my life, as a possibility for other people
Patriotism is not dying for one's country, it is living for one's country. And for humanity. Perhaps that is not as romantic, but it's better.Agnes Macphail Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Macphail: Patriotism is not dying for one's country, it is living for one's country. And for

People are always fighting reality until it's pushed down their throats.Agnes Denes Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Denes: People are always fighting reality until it's pushed down their throats.
The choral group. I have even begun to master the organ, not so different from Monsieur's piano. I strained to hear the whisper, as Sister Agnes went on with her thought. The audiences prefer children who are young, too young to be out working for themselves. It pleases them to feel as though they're donating toLisa Wingate Agnes's Sayings By Lisa Wingate: The choral group. I have even begun to master the organ, not so different from
The thinkers of the world should by rights be guardians of the world's mirth.Agnes Repplier Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Repplier: The thinkers of the world should by rights be guardians of the world's mirth.

I really believe it's not bad to look back within music. I don't mean retro, but using your own memories to make a song because our memories are what make us who we are.Agnes Obel Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Obel: I really believe it's not bad to look back within music. I don't mean retro,
Ours is an upbeat, a hurried, hasty beat. It keeps pressing us to go farther, to include everything so that we can savor everything, so that we can know everything, so that we will miss nothing. Partly it's greed, but mainly its curiosity. We just want to experience it. And we do.Agnes De Mille Agnes's Sayings By Agnes De Mille: Ours is an upbeat, a hurried, hasty beat. It keeps pressing us to go farther,
People who think of children's nudity as a tool don't need freedom of expression.Agnes Chan Agnes's Sayings By Agnes Chan: People who think of children's nudity as a tool don't need freedom of expression.

Prostitution.' He enunciates the word clearly, gazing directly into her eyes, knowing, God damn it, that he is being cruel. In the back of his mind, a kinder William Rackham watches impotently as his wife is penetrated by that single elongated word, its four slick syllables barbed midway with t's. Agnes's cameo face goes white as she gulps for air.Michel Faber Agnes's Sayings By Michel Faber: Prostitution.' He enunciates the word clearly, gazing directly into her eyes, knowing, God damn it,
I count a hundred steps and start again. My da used to say it's good to test your limits now and then, learn what the body is capable of, what you can endure. He said this when we were in the throes of sickness on the Agnes Pauline, and again in the bitter first winter in New York, when four of us, including Mam, came down with pneumonia. Test your limits. Learn what you can endure. I am doing that.Christina Baker Kline Agnes's Sayings By Christina Baker Kline: I count a hundred steps and start again. My da used to say it's good
What's the name for the space between stars?"
"No such name."
"Make one up."

"That's another way of saying heaven, Agnes.

They drive back home to grab his backpack and as he bends and kisses his grandma Agnes, she scrunches a one-hundred-dollar bill in his hand. "Buy yourself some chocolates, Tom."
It's what she'd say to him as a kid with a twenty cent coin.

There's nobody living who couldn't stand all afternoon in front of a waterfall ... Anyone who can sit on a stone in a field awhile can see my painting.

The tree is made by nature, mathematics by people. And combining the two is creating this beautiful alliance between humanity and nature.

With 'Philharmonics,' I had to do a lot of interviews, and it was like I was corrupting something. In many ways, I've said everything in the song.
