The Bible speaks of our relationship with God as knowing and being known (Gal 4:9; 1 Cor 13:12). The goal is not just the sharing of ideas but also of ourselves. Communication can lead to two-way personal revelation that produces what can only be called a dynamic experience. J. I. Packer, in his famous work Knowing God, writes: Knowing God is a matter of personal dealing. . . . Knowing God is more than knowing about him; it is a matter of dealing with him as he opens up to you, and being dealt with by him. . . . Friends . . . open their hearts to each other by what they say and do. . . . We must not lose sight of the fact that knowing God is an emotional relationship, as well as an intellectual and volitional one, and could not indeed be a deep relationship between persons if itTimothy Keller Being Well Known Sayings By Timothy Keller: The Bible speaks of our relationship with God as knowing and being known (Gal 4:9;
Qu'ils mangent de la brioche. Let them eat cake. On being told that her people had no bread. Attributed to Marie-Antoinette, but remark is much older. Rousseau refers in his Confessions, 1740, to a similar remark, as a well-known saying. Others attribute the remark to the wife of Louis XIV.Marie Antoinette Being Well Known Sayings By Marie Antoinette: Qu'ils mangent de la brioche. Let them eat cake. On being told that her people
My biggest regret? Well, I got my boobs done in my early 20's and if I had known it would or could possibly have impacted production of milk, I would never have had them done. I love being a mom.Tori Spelling Being Well Known Sayings By Tori Spelling: My biggest regret? Well, I got my boobs done in my early 20's and if
One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu - the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can't exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can't be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality - Ubuntu - you are known for your generosity. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole World. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity.Desmond Tutu Being Well Known Sayings By Desmond Tutu: One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu - the essence of being human.
Today's Uncle Tom doesn't wear a handkerchief on his head. This modern, twentieth-century Uncle Thomas now often wears a top hat. He's usually well-dressed and well-educated. He's often the personification of culture and refinement. The twentieth-century Uncle Thomas sometimes speaks with a Yale or Harvard accent. Sometimes he is known as Professor, Doctor, Judge, and Reverend, even Right Reverend Doctor. This twentieth-century Uncle Thomas is a professional Negro -by that I mean his profession is being a Negro for the white man.Malcolm X Being Well Known Sayings By Malcolm X: Today's Uncle Tom doesn't wear a handkerchief on his head. This modern, twentieth-century Uncle Thomas
My son is a great kid and does super well in school. I couldn't be prouder of him. What I tell him is, 'You don't want to just be known for being the son of a rich rock 'n' roll star.' I've seen a lot of kids like that. I want him to be happy, work hard and create his own thing. I tell him, 'You're not gonna be one of these kids up on stage playing with me. If you wanna have hits - write your own. Then we can play together.'Kid Rock Being Well Known Sayings By Kid Rock: My son is a great kid and does super well in school. I couldn't be
In the hard life of politics it is well known that no platform nor any program advanced by either major American party has any purpose beyond expressing emotion. Platforms are a ritual with a history of their own and, after being written, they are useful chiefly to scholars who dissect them as archeological political remains. The writing of a platform does indeed flatter many people, gives many pressure groups a chance to blow off steam in public, permits the leaders of such pressure groups to report back to their memberships of their valiant efforts to persuade. But in actual fact, all platforms are meaningless: the program of either party is what lies in the vision and conscience of the candidate the party chooses to lead it. Nevertheless,Theodore H. White Being Well Known Sayings By Theodore H. White: In the hard life of politics it is well known that no platform nor any
I don't mean being famous is a perk, because one knows that it's not necessarily a perk, but there are certain perks to being well-known and respected in one's field. Public perks. Like, I don't know, general friendliness and willingness to please, just to point out two.Emma Thompson Being Well Known Sayings By Emma Thompson: I don't mean being famous is a perk, because one knows that it's not necessarily
It's well-known that men and women are different but it keeps being re-discovered with great excitement.Ashleigh Brilliant Being Well Known Sayings By Ashleigh Brilliant: It's well-known that men and women are different but it keeps being re-discovered with great
If my mother's intention in whole or in part was to ensure that I never had to suffer any indignity or embarrassment for being a Jew, then she succeeded well enough. And in any case there were enough intermarriages and 'conversions' on both sides of her line to make me one of those many mischling hybrids who are to be found distributed all over the known world. And, as someone who doesn't really believe that the human species is subdivided by 'race,' let alone that a nation or nationality can be defined by its religion, why should I not let the whole question slide away from me? Why - and then I'll stop asking rhetorical questions - did I at some point resolve that, in whatever tone of voice I was asked 'Are you a Jew?' I would never hear myself deny it?Christopher Hitchens Being Well Known Sayings By Christopher Hitchens: If my mother's intention in whole or in part was to ensure that I never
This report has been difficult to write because it involves something that doesn't officially exist. It is well known that ever since the first flying saucer was reported in June 1947 the Air Force has officially said that there is no proof that such a thing as an interplanetary spaceship exists. But what is not well known is that this conclusion is far from being unanimous among the military and their scientific advisors because of the one word, proof; so the UFO investigations continue.Edward J. Ruppelt Being Well Known Sayings By Edward J. Ruppelt: This report has been difficult to write because it involves something that doesn't officially exist.
A celebrity is a person who works hard all his life to be well-known, then wears dark glasses to avoid being recognized.Fred Allen Being Well Known Sayings By Fred Allen: A celebrity is a person who works hard all his life to be well-known, then
I was weird right from the start. It's just that you can't ever expect people to get you. And I do think that really did mess with my head, being well-known young, when you really don't know who you are.Helena Bonham Carter Being Well Known Sayings By Helena Bonham Carter: I was weird right from the start. It's just that you can't ever expect people
He turned and looked at the boy. Maybe he understood for the first time that to the boy he was himself an alien. A being from a planet that no longer existed. The tales of which were suspect. He could not construct for the child's pleasure the world he'd lost without constructing the loss as well and he thought perhaps the child had known this better than he. He tried to remember the dream but he could not. All that was left was the feeling of it. He thought perhaps they'd come to warn him. Of what? That he could not enkindle in the heart of the child what was ashes in his own. Even now some part of him wished they'd never found this refuge. Some part of him always wished it to be over.Cormac McCarthy Being Well Known Sayings By Cormac McCarthy: He turned and looked at the boy. Maybe he understood for the first time that
It is well known that we fight in God's cause ... but unless God helps us by a miracle the English, who have faster and handier ships than ours, and many more long-range guns, and who know their advantage just as well as we do, will never close with us at all, but stand aloof and knock us to pieces with their culverins, without our being able to do them any serious hurt. So we are sailing against England in the confident hope of a miracle.Nicholas Rodger Being Well Known Sayings By Nicholas Rodger: It is well known that we fight in God's cause ... but unless God helps
It is common knowledge that a well-bred man should as far as possible have no face. That is to say, not so much be completely without one, but rather, should have a face and yet at the same time appear faceless. It should not stand out, just as a shirt made by a good tailor does not stand out. Needless to say, the face of a well-bred man should be exactly like that of other (well-bred) men and of course in no circumstances whatsoever should it alter. Naturally houses, trees, streets, sky and everything else in the world must satisfy the same conditions to have honor of being known as respectable and well-bred.Yevgeny Zamyatin Being Well Known Sayings By Yevgeny Zamyatin: It is common knowledge that a well-bred man should as far as possible have no
What is this spirit in man that urges him forever to depart from happiness and security, to toil, to place himself in danger, even to risk a reasonable certainty of death? It dawned upon me up there in the moon as a thing I ought always to have known, that man is not made simply to go about being safe and comfortable and well fed and amused. Against his interest, against his happiness he is constantly being driven to do unreasonable things. Some force not himself impels him and go he must.H.G.Wells Being Well Known Sayings By H.G.Wells: What is this spirit in man that urges him forever to depart from happiness and
Things don't get better when you become well known or go on TV. I'm just being rejected by a better class of women.Stephen Merchant Being Well Known Sayings By Stephen Merchant: Things don't get better when you become well known or go on TV. I'm just
A celebrity is someone famous for being well knownMorris Fishbein Being Well Known Sayings By Morris Fishbein: A celebrity is someone famous for being well known
Pollock was well known, certainly, but for all the wrong reasons. He was known as much for being wild and unconventional in his working methods as for being a great artist.Kenneth Noland Being Well Known Sayings By Kenneth Noland: Pollock was well known, certainly, but for all the wrong reasons. He was known as
Success for some people, depends on becoming well-known, for others it depends on never being found out.Ashleigh Brilliant Being Well Known Sayings By Ashleigh Brilliant: Success for some people, depends on becoming well-known, for others it depends on never being

To get your name well enough known that you can run for a public office, some people do it by being great lawyers or philanthropists or business people or work their way up the political ladder. I happened to become known from a different route.John Glenn Being Well Known Sayings By John Glenn: To get your name well enough known that you can run for a public office,
Man is known to be a selfish, as well as a social being.James Madison Being Well Known Sayings By James Madison: Man is known to be a selfish, as well as a social being.
It seemed to me that Babette and I, in the mass and variety of our purchases, in the sheer plenitude those crowded bags suggested, the weight and size and number, the familiar package designs and vivid lettering, the giant sizes, the family bargain packs with Day-Glo sale stickers, in the sense of replenishment we felt, the sense of well-being, the security and contentment these products brought to some snug home in our souls - it seemed we had achieved a fullness of being that is not known to people who need less, expect less, who plan their lives around lonely walks in the evening.Don DeLillo Being Well Known Sayings By Don DeLillo: It seemed to me that Babette and I, in the mass and variety of our
But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God.Timothy Keller Being Well Known Sayings By Timothy Keller: But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved
they were not well dressed; their shoes were far from being water-proof; their clothes were scanty; and Peter might have known, and very likely did, the inside of a pawnbroker's.Charles Dickens Being Well Known Sayings By Charles Dickens: they were not well dressed; their shoes were far from being water-proof; their clothes were
It's amazing the relationships you forge in a kitchen. When you cooperate in an environment that's hot. Where there's a lot of knives. You're trusting your well-being with someone you've never before met or known.Alexandra Guarnaschelli Being Well Known Sayings By Alexandra Guarnaschelli: It's amazing the relationships you forge in a kitchen. When you cooperate in an environment
I've always known that I've wanted to write, but I always saw myself doing that in the context of something other than film, so it was a really beautiful and kind of perfect moment in my life when I realized that I could combine this idea of wanting to write and tell my own stories with the environment I had grown up in and knew well - that I could make film as opposed to writing being a departure from what I knew.Sarah Polley Being Well Known Sayings By Sarah Polley: I've always known that I've wanted to write, but I always saw myself doing that
There's a lot of difference between being well known and being notorious and the black paintings didn't make me well known - they made me notorious.Frank Stella Being Well Known Sayings By Frank Stella: There's a lot of difference between being well known and being notorious and the black
Doing everything with one arm, being well-known, and having a book and a movie, it's fairly abnormal. As far as just not having to worry about past experiences, I've healed very well.Bethany Hamilton Being Well Known Sayings By Bethany Hamilton: Doing everything with one arm, being well-known, and having a book and a movie, it's
The time will come to every human being when it must be known how well he can bear to die.Samuel Johnson Being Well Known Sayings By Samuel Johnson: The time will come to every human being when it must be known how well
[Alon Johnson] Later wrote that, coming through a battered building near a well known and dangerous doorway. I heard something unfamiliar
the sound of excited voices somewhere in the distance. The significance of this babble seemed to escape the tired company, but to me it suggested a sudden and radical change in the situation. Important enough to risk being shot at by showing myself in the doorway. Nothing happened, so I stepped into the street, ...
Mark Zuehlke Being Well Known Sayings By Mark Zuehlke: [Alon Johnson] Later wrote that, coming through a battered building near a well known and
Power is a poison well known for thousands of years. If only no one were ever to acquire material power over others! But to the human being who has faith in some force that holds dominion over all of us, and who is therefore conscious of his own limitations, power is not necessarily fatal. For those, however, who are unaware of any higher sphere, it is a deadly poison. For them there is no antidote.Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Being Well Known Sayings By Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn: Power is a poison well known for thousands of years. If only no one were
Sometimes I feel a strange exhilaration up here which seems to come from something beyond the mere stimulus of flying. It is a feeling of belonging to the sky, of owning and being owned - if only for a moment - by the air I breathe. It is akin to the well known claim of the swallow: each bird staking out his personal bug-strewn slice of heaven, his inviolate property of the blue.Guy Murchie Being Well Known Sayings By Guy Murchie: Sometimes I feel a strange exhilaration up here which seems to come from something beyond
Were all first loves like that? Somehow she doubted it; even now it struck her as being more real than anything she'd ever known. Sometimes it saddened her to think that she'd never experience that kind of feeling again, but then life had a way of stamping out that intensity of passion; she'd learned all too well that love wasn't always enough.Nicholas Sparks Being Well Known Sayings By Nicholas Sparks: Were all first loves like that? Somehow she doubted it; even now it struck her
If all, or almost all, the plays that are popular now, imaginative works as well as historical ones, are known to be nonsense and without rhyme or reason, and despite this the mob hears them with pleasure and thinks of them and approves of them as good, when they are very far from being so, and the authors who compose them and the actors who perform them say they must be like this because that is just how the mob wants them, and no other way; the plays that have a design and follow the story as art demands appeal to a handful of discerning persons who understand them, while everyone else is incapable of comprehending their artistry; and since, as far as the authors and actors are concerned, it is better to earn a living with the crowd than a reputation with the elite, this is what would happen to my book after I had singed my eyebrows trying to keep the precepts I have mentioned and had become the tailor who wasn't paid.Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra Being Well Known Sayings By Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra: If all, or almost all, the plays that are popular now, imaginative works as well
Drake was a man who retrieved things for people. His reputation was well-known, and people came to him not only for his reliability, but also his discretion. Certainly that was why he was here now, being offered this ungodly sum of money to go back in time.Dennis B. Boyer Being Well Known Sayings By Dennis B. Boyer: Drake was a man who retrieved things for people. His reputation was well-known, and people
Do you know why people like me are shy about being capitalists? Well, its because we, for as long as we have known you, were capital, like bales of cotton and sacks of sugar, and you were commanding, cruel capitalists, and the memory of this so strong, the experience so recent, that we can't quite bring ourselves to embrace this idea that you think so much of. As for hat we were like before we met you, I no longer care. No periods of time over which my ancestors held sway, no documentation of complex civilisations, is any comfort to me. Even if I really came from people who were living like monkeys in trees, it was better to be that than what happened to me, what I became after I met you.Jamaica Kincaid Being Well Known Sayings By Jamaica Kincaid: Do you know why people like me are shy about being capitalists? Well, its because
Did God tell you to do this, Merry? Did he lead you in this direction?" Through the tears, Merry nodded again. "Then you have to believe he has it all under control. If it is his plan that you lose her, then you must face the fact that God knows best. We will pray that that is not in his plan. But, Merry, you know as well as anyone that God's plans are his own and no man understands his ways. We just have to trust him. It's hard to let him have control when you think he might change all you've ever known. Imagine what Abraham must have felt when God asked him to sacrifice his only son on an altar. At the last second, God stepped in by way of an angel and kept him from being obedient. Obedience is always better than sacrifice. You were obedient in doing what God has told you to do. You may also have to sacrifice, but we don't know that yet, do we? Trust God, sister. We'll all be praying for you.Darlene Shortridge Being Well Known Sayings By Darlene Shortridge: Did God tell you to do this, Merry? Did he lead you in this direction?"
The said Ivan Dovgochkun, son of Nikifor, when I went to him with a friendly proposition, called me publicly by an epithet insulting and injurious to my honor, namely, a goose, whereas it is known to the whole district of Mirgorod, that I never was named after that disgusting animal, and have no intention of ever being named after it. And the proof of my noble extraction is, that, in the baptismal register to be found in the Church of the Three Bishops, the day of my birth, and likewise the fact of my baptism, are inscribed. But a goose, as is well known to every one who has any knowledge of science, cannot be inscribed in the baptismal register; for a goose is not a man, but a fowl: which, likewise, is sufficiently well known, even to persons who have not been to a seminary. But the evil-minded nobleman, being privy to all these facts, for no other purpose than to offer a deadly insult to my rank and calling, affronted me with the aforesaid foul word.Nikolai Gogol Being Well Known Sayings By Nikolai Gogol: The said Ivan Dovgochkun, son of Nikifor, when I went to him with a friendly
Meanwhile, what about the workers in those state monopolies that are being put up for sale? I am reminded of a technique for employee ownership that has worked well for many U.S. companies. It goes by various names, but the best known is "Employee Stock Ownership Program," or ESOP.Ronald Reagan Being Well Known Sayings By Ronald Reagan: Meanwhile, what about the workers in those state monopolies that are being put up for
When I conducted a beer-rating session last year, I wrote that most American beers taste as if they were brewed through a horse. That offended many people in the American beer industry, as well as patriots who thought I was being subversive in praising foreign beers. I have just read a little-known study of American beers. So I must apologize to the horse. At least with a horse, we'd know what we're getting.Mike Royko Being Well Known Sayings By Mike Royko: When I conducted a beer-rating session last year, I wrote that most American beers taste
And what is the religion of many persons but a kind of demonism that delights in human sacrifices and causes them to look with horror on the greatest part of mankind? Plutarch, it is well known, has observed very justly that it is better not to believe in a god than to believe him to be a capricious and malevolent being.Richard Price Being Well Known Sayings By Richard Price: And what is the religion of many persons but a kind of demonism that delights
We want to be known for having original ideas, inspired hunches, and gut feelings that make a difference. Indeed, a "well-honed sixth sense"' is considered a measure of the good clinician. But being a good doctor also requires sticking with the best medical evidence, even if it contradicts your personal experience. We need to distinguish between gut feeling and testable knowledge, between hunches and empirically tested evidence.Robert A. Burton Being Well Known Sayings By Robert A. Burton: We want to be known for having original ideas, inspired hunches, and gut feelings that
Being well known for being well-known did not necessarily imply intelligence.David Halberstam Being Well Known Sayings By David Halberstam: Being well known for being well-known did not necessarily imply intelligence.
It is from the unseen world that the phenomenal world emerges, and it is from the unseen realm of our hearts that all actions spring. The well-known civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr. said that in order for people to condemn injustice, they must go through four stages. The first stage is that people must ascertain that indeed injustices are being perpetrated. In his case, it was injustices against African Americans in the United States. The second stage is to negotiate, that is, approach the oppressor and demand justice. If the oppressor refuses, King said that the third stage is self-purification, which starts with the question: "Are we ourselves wrongdoers? Are we ourselves oppressors?" The fourth stage, then, is to take action after true self-examination, after removing one's own wrongs before demanding justice from others.Hamza Yusuf Being Well Known Sayings By Hamza Yusuf: It is from the unseen world that the phenomenal world emerges, and it is from
I see very small movies being financed by crowdfunding. If you're a well-known actor or celebrity of some sort, you can probably raise between one and two million. I don't have that kind of cult [following].John Sayles Being Well Known Sayings By John Sayles: I see very small movies being financed by crowdfunding. If you're a well-known actor or
I just hate the idea of being well known. I know that is almost impossible if you're an actor who has done okay, but I've always fought against it.Michael Gambon Being Well Known Sayings By Michael Gambon: I just hate the idea of being well known. I know that is almost impossible
He would perhaps have known that to try too hard to make people good, is one way to make them worse; that the only way to make them good is to be good
remembering well the beam and the mote; that the time for speaking comes rarely, the time for being never departs.
George MacDonald Being Well Known Sayings By George MacDonald: He would perhaps have known that to try too hard to make people good, is
We live in a time when science is validating what humans have known throughout the ages: that compassion is not a luxury; it is a necessity for our well-being, resilience, and survival.Joan Halifax Being Well Known Sayings By Joan Halifax: We live in a time when science is validating what humans have known throughout the
She snorted a little. "Most people's eyes glaze over when I begin to ramble." "That's . . . not what happens with me." "Oh really? What happens with you?" "My cock gets hard." "Oh good grief, I should have known. Is there anything that doesn't make your dick hard?" "That you do? Not very much." "Well, tell me when you figure it out so I can practice it. I'm kind of tired of being followed around by a hard dick.Lucian Bane Being Well Known Sayings By Lucian Bane: She snorted a little. "Most people's eyes glaze over when I begin to ramble." "That's
Getting an education is a running leap towards becoming filthy rich in Asia. This is no secret. But like many desirable things, simply being well known does not make it easily achieved. There are forks in the road to wealth that have nothing to do with choice or desire or effort, forks that have to do with chance, and in your case, the order of your birth is one of these. Third means you are not heading back to the village. Third means you are not working as a painter's assistant. Third also means you are not, like the fourth of you three surviving siblings, a tiny skeleton in a small grave at the base of a tree.Mohsin Hamid Being Well Known Sayings By Mohsin Hamid: Getting an education is a running leap towards becoming filthy rich in Asia. This is
In the General History of Africa, we come across very impressive facts about the culture of primitive African peoples. It is known, for example, that in the old African kingdoms, all foreigners-whether white or colored- enjoyed hospitality and had the same rights as the native people. At the same time, a foreigner in ancient Rome or Greece usually became a slave. Such and similar facts have probably made Leo Frobenius, a well-known German ethnologist and a great connoisseur of Africa, write : The Africans are civilized up to their bones, and the idea of their being barbarians is a European fiction.Alija Izetbegovic Being Well Known Sayings By Alija Izetbegovic: In the General History of Africa, we come across very impressive facts about the culture
There's not always going to be something out there for you, especially not a positive role, so once you get up there and start being well known, you can't just think projects will come to you. You have to start doing your own projects because if you don't, you'll miss out, and eventually your fame will be over.Keke Palmer Being Well Known Sayings By Keke Palmer: There's not always going to be something out there for you, especially not a positive
Instead of being a well-known painter, I became everybody's favorite dirty joke. Come to think of it, teaching masturbation skills is pretty weird.Betty Dodson Being Well Known Sayings By Betty Dodson: Instead of being a well-known painter, I became everybody's favorite dirty joke. Come to think
should therefore make the most of every half-hour in which she can command his attention. When she is secure of him, there will be more leisure for falling in love as much as she chooses." "Your plan is a good one," replied Elizabeth, "where nothing is in question but the desire of being well married, and if I were determined to get a rich husband, or any husband, I dare say I should adopt it. But these are not Jane's feelings; she is not acting by design. As yet, she cannot even be certain of the degree of her own regard nor of its reasonableness. She has known him only a fortnight. SheJane Austen Being Well Known Sayings By Jane Austen: should therefore make the most of every half-hour in which she can command his attention.
It is well-known that those who have charge of young infants, that it is difficult to feel sure when certain movements about their mouths are really expressive; that is when they really smile. Hence I carefully watched my own infants. One of them at the age of forty-five days, and being in a happy frame of mind, smiled ... I observed the same thing on the following day: but on the third day the child was not quite well and there was no trace of a smile, and this renders it probable that the previous smiles were real.Charles Darwin Being Well Known Sayings By Charles Darwin: It is well-known that those who have charge of young infants, that it is difficult
Believe me. There was nothing good in always being second place. Next to you, I may as well have been invisible - at least when it came to the ladies. If I'd known, we'd both end up as bachelors, I wouldn't have been so jealous of you.'
'Jealous?' Akkarin's smile faded. He turned away to stare at the horizon. 'No. Don't be jealous.
Trudi Canavan Being Well Known Sayings By Trudi Canavan: Believe me. There was nothing good in always being second place. Next to you, I
I've known several men who believe women are only interested in relationships for money and comfort, and they aren't capable of really loving. And I've known women who insist men only want sex and don't know how to love. White people used to insist that blacks weren't capable of 'noble' emotions, that they were little more than animals. The same was said about Jews, Native Americans, you name it. It's an ancient argument. People keep dredging it up, trying to prove to themselves that people they don't understand are alien and don't warrant being treated well. And it is always - always - wrong. Despite our differences, all people are basically built from the same template. We are all equally admirable and equally flawed.Jamie Fessenden Being Well Known Sayings By Jamie Fessenden: I've known several men who believe women are only interested in relationships for money and
Well I've made no secret of my life long love of MAD Magazine, it's probably my first and greatest influence in terms of my comic sensibilities. I've known John [Ficarra] for many years, and we've been friends. About four or five months ago, at a dinner in New York, John made the very nice offer of my being guest editor for an issue of MAD and I thought about it for about half a nanosecond and decided that was a pretty good idea.Al Yankovic Being Well Known Sayings By Al Yankovic: Well I've made no secret of my life long love of MAD Magazine, it's probably
There was nothing of high mark in this. They were not a handsome family; they were not well dressed; their shoes were far from being water-proof; their clothes were scanty; and Peter might have known, and very likely did, the inside of a pawnbroker's. But, they were happy, grateful, pleased with one another, and contented with the time; and when they faded, and looked happier yet in the bright sprinklings of the Spirit's torch at parting, Scrooge had his eye upon them, and especially on Tiny Tim, until the last.Charles Dickens Being Well Known Sayings By Charles Dickens: There was nothing of high mark in this. They were not a handsome family; they
Experience has repeatedly confirmed that well-known maxim of Bacon's that 'a little philosophy inclineth a man's mind to atheism, but depth in philosophy bringeth men's minds about to religion.' At the same time, when Bacon penned that sage epigram ... he forgot to add that the God to whom depth in philosophy brings back men's minds is far from being the same from whom a little philosophy estranges them.George Santayana Being Well Known Sayings By George Santayana: Experience has repeatedly confirmed that well-known maxim of Bacon's that 'a little philosophy inclineth a
In the country, I stopped being a person who, in the words of Sylvia Boorstein, startles easily. I grew calmer, but beneath that calm was a deep well of loneliness I hadn't known was there ... Anxiety was my fuel. When I stopped, it was all waiting for me: fear, anger, grief, despair, and that terrible, terrible loneliness. What was it about? I was hardly alone. I loved my husband and son. I had great friends, colleagues, students. In the quiet, in the extra hours, I was forced to ask the question, and to listen carefully to the answer: I was lonely for myself. [p. 123]Dani Shapiro Being Well Known Sayings By Dani Shapiro: In the country, I stopped being a person who, in the words of Sylvia Boorstein,
Rubashov had always believed that he knew himself rather well. Being without moral prejudices, he had no illusions about the phenomenon called the "first person singular" and had taken for granted, without particular emotion, that this phenomenon was endowed with certain impulses which people are generally reluctant to admit. Now, when he stood with his forehead against the window or suddenly stopped on the third black tile, he made unexpected discoveries. He found that those processes wrongly known as monologues are really dialogues of a special kind - dialogues in which one partner remains silent while the other, against all grammatical rules, addresses him as "I" instead of "you," in order to creep into his confidence and to fathom his intentions, but the silent partner just remains silent, shuns observation, and even refuses to be localized in time and space.Arthur Koestler Being Well Known Sayings By Arthur Koestler: Rubashov had always believed that he knew himself rather well. Being without moral prejudices, he
Education has two aspects; the first is related to external and worldly education, which is nothing but acquiring bookish knowledge. In the modern world, we find many well versed and highly qualified in this aspect. The second aspect known as Educare is related to human values. The word Educare means to bring out that which is within. Human values are latent in every human being; one cannot acquire them from outside. They have to be elicited from within. Educare means to bring out human values. 'To bring out' means to translate them into action.Sathya Sai Baba Being Well Known Sayings By Sathya Sai Baba: Education has two aspects; the first is related to external and worldly education, which is
Why had we come to the moon? The thing presented itself to me as a perplexing problem. What is this spirit in man that urges him for ever to depart from happiness and security, to toil, to place himself in danger, to risk an even a reasonable certainty of death? It dawned upon me that there in the moon as a thing I ought always to have known, that man is not made to go about safe and comfortable and well fed and amused ... against his interest, against his happiness, he is constantly being driven to do unreasonable things. Some force not himself impels him, and he must go.H.G.Wells Being Well Known Sayings By H.G.Wells: Why had we come to the moon? The thing presented itself to me as a

Starting off in music, the purpose of it was not to become like well known on the street and be famous. You know, I didn't even think about that part of being famous. Famous for making records, yes, but famous face in a woman's magazine, I never thought of that. I didn't want that.Mick Jagger Being Well Known Sayings By Mick Jagger: Starting off in music, the purpose of it was not to become like well known
Whenever I think of the high salaries we are paid as film actors, I think it is for the travel, the time away, and any trouble you get into through being well known. It's not for the acting, that's for sure.Bill Murray Being Well Known Sayings By Bill Murray: Whenever I think of the high salaries we are paid as film actors, I think

In addition to the well-known benefits of health and well-being derived from exercise, there are other unique advantages to being a runner. You are more attuned to not only your body but also the world around you. The outdoor life you lead as a runner gives you a special relationship with your surroundings: nature, the climate, the seasons. As you depend on these things to accommodate your activity, you grow to understand and appreciate them.Grete Waitz Being Well Known Sayings By Grete Waitz: In addition to the well-known benefits of health and well-being derived from exercise, there are
There are problems connected with infidelity and problems connected with being faithful at any cost, and I am for letting those concerned choose the problems they'd prefer. There need not be one rule for all. Infidelity is enlarging and fragmenting and very very dangerous, but it has been known to retrieve people as well as marriages, so it can't be only bad.Merle Shain Being Well Known Sayings By Merle Shain: There are problems connected with infidelity and problems connected with being faithful at any cost,
A celebrity is a person known for his well-knownness. Celebrities intensify their celebrity images simply by being well known for relations among themselves.

Celebrities intensify their celebrity images simply
Capitalism has created the highest standard of living ever known on earth. The evidence is incontrovertible. The contrast between West and East Berlin is the latest demonstration, like a laboratory experiment for all to see. Yet those who are loudest in proclaiming their desire to eliminate poverty are loudest in denouncing capitalism. Man's well-being is not their goal.Ayn Rand Being Well Known Sayings By Ayn Rand: Capitalism has created the highest standard of living ever known on earth. The evidence is
Human well-being is not a random phenomenon. It depends on many factors - ranging from genetics and neurobiology to sociology and economics. But, clearly, there are scientific truths to be known about how we can flourish in this world. Wherever we can have an impact on the well-being of others, questions of morality apply.Sam Harris Being Well Known Sayings By Sam Harris: Human well-being is not a random phenomenon.

When I got home, I poured myself one last quick drink. I took a deep sip and let the warm liquor travel to destinations well known. Yes, I drink. But I'm not a drunk. That's not denial. I know I flirt with being an alcoholic. I also know that flirting with alcoholism is about as safe as flirting with a mobster's underage daughter. But so far, the flirting hasn't led to coupling. I'm smart enough to know that might not last. ChloeHarlan Coben Being Well Known Sayings By Harlan Coben: When I got home, I poured myself one last quick drink. I took a deep
I have no right to give my opinion," said Wickham, "as to his being agreeable or otherwise. I am not qualified to form one. I have known him too long and too well to be a fair judge.

I have always loved everything about you. Even what I didn't understand. And I have always known that, at heart, I would have you no different. But most people don't know how to love. Nothing is enough for them. They must have their dreams. It's the only thing they do well. Dreaming. They dream up obligations. New ones every day. They long for undiscovered countries, fresh demands, another call. While some of us are left with the knowledge that love can never wait. A shared bed, a hand in yours, that's the only thing that matters. The worst thing of all is fear. The fear of being alone.Albert Camus Being Well Known Sayings By Albert Camus: I have always loved everything about you. Even what I didn't understand. And I have
It was considered the most dangerous route in the Hills, but as my reputation as a rider and quick shot was well known, I was molested very little, for the toll gatherers looked on me as being a good fellow, and they knew that I never missed my mark.Calamity Jane Being Well Known Sayings By Calamity Jane: It was considered the most dangerous route in the Hills, but as my reputation as
STEPAN: Innocence? Yes, maybe I know what that means. But I prefer to shut my eyes to it - and to shut others' eyes to it, for the time being - so that one day it may have a world-wide meaning. KALIAYEV: Well, you must feel very sure that day is coming if you repudiate everything that makes life worth living today, on its account. STEPAN: I am certain that that day is coming. KALIAYEV: No, you can't be as sure as that. ... Before it can be known which of us, you or I, is right, perhaps three generations will have to be sacrificed; there will have been bloody wars, and no less bloody revolutions. And by the time that all this blood has dried off the earth, you and I will long since have turned to dust.Albert Camus Being Well Known Sayings By Albert Camus: STEPAN: Innocence? Yes, maybe I know what that means. But I prefer to shut my
I think I was very lucky that I didn't get well-known until my early thirties. If it had happened when I was younger, you might have seen me falling out of nightclubs. I think I conducted myself as a much better human being because I was already married when all that came along (I got married five months after I got the role as Will).Eric McCormack Being Well Known Sayings By Eric McCormack: I think I was very lucky that I didn't get well-known until my early thirties.
I see myself as life-sized, certainly not a supersized personality, and apparently after 30 years of television, that's what the audience thinks of me as well. I know this because for the first time in my career, I've just seen market research, and the thing I am known for is being authentic.Jane Pauley Being Well Known Sayings By Jane Pauley: I see myself as life-sized, certainly not a supersized personality, and apparently after 30 years

Someone has said that Satan knows nothing of true pleasure and satisfaction, that he is an expert only in amusements. David had learned the difference, and we would do well to imitate him. True pleasure comes from knowing God, being known by God, and being at rest in His presence.David Jeremiah Being Well Known Sayings By David Jeremiah: Someone has said that Satan knows nothing of true pleasure and satisfaction, that he is
When we are in a truly loving relationship, we receive the gift of being known and accepted. We become more, not less, of who we are. We receive the space in which to bloom. This is how we know we are in a loving relationship. We are blooming, and the one we love is blooming as well.Brenda Shoshanna Being Well Known Sayings By Brenda Shoshanna: When we are in a truly loving relationship, we receive the gift of being known
Many were the tears shed by them in their last adieus to a place so much beloved. "Dear, dear Norland!" said Marianne, as she wandered alone before the house, on the last evening of their being there; "when shall I cease to regret you! - when learn to feel a home elsewhere! - Oh! happy house, could you know what I suffer in now viewing you from this spot, from whence perhaps I may view you no more! - And you, ye well-known trees! - but you will continue the same. - No leaf will decay because we are removed, nor any branch become motionless although we can observe you no longer! - No; you will continue the same; unconscious of the pleasure or the regret you occasion, and insensible of any change in those who walk under your shade! - But who will remain to enjoy you?Jane Austen Being Well Known Sayings By Jane Austen: Many were the tears shed by them in their last adieus to a place so
There are many famous people who could read extremely fast. It was said that England's Samuel Johnson could read almost as fast as he could look at the pages. While in the White House, President Theodore Roosevelt used to read a book every day before breakfast, and he occasionally read three a day. John F. Kennedy was well known for being able to read 1,200 words per minute.Peter Kump Being Well Known Sayings By Peter Kump: There are many famous people who could read extremely fast.

He had passed his life in the pursuit of happiness, and had never learnt that happiness is best attained when it is not sought; and, moreover, is only known when it is lost. It is doubtful whether anyone can say "I am happy"; but only "I was happy". For happiness is not well-being, content, heart's ease, pleasure, enjoyment: all these go to make happiness, but they are not happiness.W. Somerset Maugham Being Well Known Sayings By W. Somerset Maugham: He had passed his life in the pursuit of happiness, and had never learnt that
I wonder if I'm being disloyal, if being with Didier means I'm forgetting about Jones. But every time I go in a drain, or past a church, I think of him. Every time I see a can of Coke, I think of Jones. And don't even start me on how I feel when I see department-store Santas.
A girl doesn't forget a guy like Jones in a big hurry. Even ow, when none of us are front-page news any longer, he's always in my head.
My name is Dodie.
Doe - as in don't change a thing (well, a couple of things I'd change).
