mythical knight in shining armor. He's gorgeous, loaded, and says all the right things to me. He makes me

prize. - Bride

In the moment in which we now find ourselves, we have the ability to focus in on and do the things that serve us for the better - or we can give our attention to those things that reignite whatever thoughts that cause us to remain stuck in the moment or the past.Josh Hinds Better Things Sayings By Josh Hinds: In the moment in which we now find ourselves, we have the ability to focus
Do you need help with anything?" he asked with a wicked arched brow. "Maybe with cookies for Santa."
Scowling because no one was here but us, I said, "You're a bit late for that. Santa already came."
He hadn't moved, but I knew better than to think he would. Flynn was a pro at filling the bubble air space that was meant to be private and personal. "And were you a good girl?" he asked.
Awkwardly folding my arms over my chest, I said, "Not sure, I haven't checked. But you needn't look. We all know you are all bad."
Laughing, he said, "Yeah, well, there are other things worth unwrapping."
Grinding my teeth, I asked, "What, you didn't get your Ho, Ho, Ho, last night?"
Tossing back another full belly laugh, he said, "You know you're kind of funny when you want to be.
Shannon Dermott Better Things Sayings By Shannon Dermott: Do you need help with anything?" he asked with a wicked arched brow. "Maybe with

That's always how you do it.
I think Straight Outta Compton is one of the greatest biopics, but I am biased on that one, obviously. There are some things the Academy gets wrong and it's important to call them on it. But in other instances, there are simply just better actors. They're doing a better job than they've done, but there's still room for improvement.Bun B. Better Things Sayings By Bun B.: I think Straight Outta Compton is one of the greatest biopics, but I am biased
Ever wanted more. After all, women weren't equal to men. They were better. Certainly not in strength or their skill in killing things, but when it came to propagation women absolutely trounced men. Men could bring some chips to the party, but that shindig was always going down in the belly of a woman. And considering that the hardest part of gathering food now was finding a parking spot, strength and killing things were significantly less high on the list of key survival traits.Matt K. Turner Better Things Sayings By Matt K. Turner: Ever wanted more. After all, women weren't equal to men. They were better. Certainly not
I want to be six years old again - just for a day.

That's what I want. I want to laugh.
Jaye Murray Better Things Sayings By Jaye Murray: I want to be six years old again - just for a day.It's not that

I feel I'm better now than I ever have been. You learn so much as you're doing it. I'm watching tapes and I'll see things that get me annoyed and where I know I can improve. I understand better letting the crowd play more. I've always said it was important for me who I was working with, because I like to kid around a lot. But I've also learned to use my partner better. I'm feeling good. There's no reason to stop.Marv Albert Better Things Sayings By Marv Albert: I feel I'm better now than I ever have been. You learn so much as
I felt that if people understood the struggle of recovery, then some of the stigma of addiction might be reduced because the audience would understand in a palpable way that addiction is a disease that tells the afflicted, despite years or even decades of heartbreaking evidence to the contrary, that using will make things better.Brian Lindstrom Better Things Sayings By Brian Lindstrom: I felt that if people understood the struggle of recovery, then some of the stigma

Regular maps have few surprises: their contour lines reveal where the Andes are, and are reasonably clear. More precious, though, are the unpublished maps we make ourselves, of our city, our place, our daily world, our life; those maps of our private world we use every day; here I was happy, in that place I left my coat behind after a party, that is where I met my love; I cried there once, I was heartsore; but felt better round the corner once I saw the hills of Fife across the Forth, things of that sort, our personal memories, that make the private tapestry of our lives.Alexander McCall Smith Better Things Sayings By Alexander McCall Smith: Regular maps have few surprises: their contour lines reveal where the Andes are, and are

For the most part, our jobs require us to use our skills, engage our minds, and pursue our goals - all things that have been shown to contribute to happiness. Of course, leisure activities can do this too, but because they're not required of us - because there is no "leisure boss" leaning over our shoulder on Sunday mornings telling us we'd better be at the art museum by 9 A.M. sharpShawn Achor Better Things Sayings By Shawn Achor: For the most part, our jobs require us to use our skills, engage our minds,
I love you as only a lover can. Less depressed, less obsessed, I am better than ever able to love your hair, which has blond lights in it, and your remarkable eyes, the blue of my Nana's chipped china. I love the smell of your skin, impossible to describe except to say it's a confluence of many pungent things, and I love your chest with the disks of your nipples, and your thighs striated with sweat, and your back and your breath while you are above me.Lauren Slater Better Things Sayings By Lauren Slater: I love you as only a lover can. Less depressed, less obsessed, I am better
Perhaps, on the whole, embarrassment and perplexity are a kind of natural accompaniment to life and movement; and it is better to be driven out of your senses with thinking which of two things you ought to do than to do nothing whatever, and be utterly uninteresting to all the world.Margaret Oliphant Better Things Sayings By Margaret Oliphant: Perhaps, on the whole, embarrassment and perplexity are a kind of natural accompaniment to life
Some things get better with age. Like me.Keith Richards Better Things Sayings By Keith Richards: Some things get better with age. Like me.
to make old things work better, to make new things possible, and to do old things in fundamentally new ways. For instance, the invention of the Uber taxi service did all three: it didn't just create a new competitive taxi fleet; it created a fundamentally new and better way to summon a taxi, to gather data on riders' needs and desires, to pay for a taxi, and to rate the behavior of the driver and the passenger. These sorts of transformations are now happening in every business, thanks to the energy release of the supernova.Thomas L. Friedman Better Things Sayings By Thomas L. Friedman: to make old things work better, to make new things possible, and to do old
I just wish we could hold on to that sense of wonder because sometimes we don't notice some of the most incredible things in the world. We walk by beautiful flowers and trees every day without looking at them. We rush through our day without even saying hi to most of the people we see. We take a lot for granted, and I think that's why some people say it's better to live each day as our last. That way we might start appreciating more things around us.Ellen DeGeneres Better Things Sayings By Ellen DeGeneres: I just wish we could hold on to that sense of wonder because sometimes we
The program of A.A., as written by Bill Wilson and Dr. Smith, only has one purpose: to get you sober. That's it. To make you a better person, forget it. That was one of the things he came to understand in those years of trial and error. It has to be about only one thing.Susan Cheever Better Things Sayings By Susan Cheever: The program of A.A., as written by Bill Wilson and Dr. Smith, only has one
When confronted with problems, most companies try to make small changes or Band-Aid fixes and hope things get better or that the problem goes away.

If we plant the right seeds, tomorrow will be better. If you put out good things, then you'll get good things back. That's part of our responsibility as entertainers.Ben Vereen Better Things Sayings By Ben Vereen: If we plant the right seeds, tomorrow will be better. If you put out good

If bad things are going to be said about me, I have to bear that. If I don't understand that it's part of being in show business, then I'd better go work in a bank.Antonio Banderas Better Things Sayings By Antonio Banderas: If bad things are going to be said about me, I have to bear that.

The good news is that by the second year, those cravings were about as half as frequent, and by the third year, half as much again. I'm still a little bent, a little crooked, but all things crooked, I can't complain. After all those years of all kinds of abuse and crashing into trees at eighty miles an hour and jumping off buildings and living through overdoses and liver disease, I feel better now than I did ten years ago. I might have some scar tissue, but that's alright, I'm still making progress.Anthony Kiedis Better Things Sayings By Anthony Kiedis: The good news is that by the second year, those cravings were about as half
You always have to go for bigger and better things.Beth Mowins Better Things Sayings By Beth Mowins: You always have to go for bigger and better things.
Suppose a person entering a house were to feel heat on the porch, and going further, were to feel the heat increasing, the more they penetrated within. Doubtless, such a person would believe there was a fire in the house, even though they did not see the fire that must be causing all this heat. A similar thing will happen to anyone who considers this world in detail: one will observe that all things are arranged according to their degrees of beauty and excellence, and that the nearer they are to God, the more beautiful and better they are.Thomas Aquinas Better Things Sayings By Thomas Aquinas: Suppose a person entering a house were to feel heat on the porch, and going
Imagination in a poet is a faculty so wild and lawless that, like a high ranging spaniel, it must have clogs tied to it, lest it outrun the judgment. The great easiness of blank verse renders the poet too luxuriant. He is tempted to say many things which might better be omitted, or, at least shut up in fewer words.John Dryden Better Things Sayings By John Dryden: Imagination in a poet is a faculty so wild and lawless that, like a high
Making a record is a lot like surgery without an anesthetic. You first have to cut yourself up the middle. Then you have to rip out every single organ, every single part and lay them on a table. You then need to examine the parts, and the reality of the situation hits you. You find yourself saying things like "I didn't know that part was so ugly." Or "I better get a professional opinion about that." You go to bed hollow and then back into the operating room the next day ... facing every fear, every disgusting thing you hate about yourself. Then you pop it all back in, sew yourself shut and perform ... you perform like your life depended on it
and in those perfect moments you find beauty you never knew existed. You find yourself and you friends all over again, you find something to fight for, something to love. Something to show the world.
Gerard Way Better Things Sayings By Gerard Way: Making a record is a lot like surgery without an anesthetic. You first have to
Sometimes you say things because they make you feel better. Sometimes you say that because it makes me feel better. "I love you" stays locked behind my teeth because there is no way saying it aloud will make you feel anything but worse. I don't say it, because when you love someone, really love them, you don't want anything you do to ever hurt them.Megan Hart Better Things Sayings By Megan Hart: Sometimes you say things because they make you feel better. Sometimes you say that because
There is plenty of misery in the world, all right, but there is ample pleasure, as well. If a person forswears pleasure in order to avoid misery, what has he gained? ... how can you admire a human who consciously embraces the bland, the mediocre, and the safe rather than risk the suffering that disappointments can bring? ... If desire causes suffering, it may be because we do not desire wisely, or that we are inexpert at obtaining what we desire ... why not get better at fulfilling desire? I cannot believe that the most delicious things were placed here merely to test us, to tempt us, to make it the more difficult for us to achieve the grand prize - they safety of the void. To fashion of life such a petty game is unworthy of both men and gods.Tom Robbins Better Things Sayings By Tom Robbins: There is plenty of misery in the world, all right, but there is ample pleasure,
We all have things inside ourselves we can't kill,' I say, not sure which part of me would be better off dead: this monster self, or the normal one who wants nothing more than a little place on a little planet with his friends, the one who will have to live with being a killer.Holly Black Better Things Sayings By Holly Black: We all have things inside ourselves we can't kill,' I say, not sure which part
but then where would one end if one started to compose a list of the wrongs that this world had seen? Better perhaps, thought Mma Ramotswe, to make a list of those things that were right with the world, of people who had made life better for other people, or who had done what they had been called to do with honour and without complaint. HerAlexander McCall Smith Better Things Sayings By Alexander McCall Smith: but then where would one end if one started to compose a list of the
There was something in the pages of these books that had the power to make him feel better about things, a life raft to cling to before the dark currents of memory washed him downstream again, and on brighter days, he could even see himself going on this way for some time. A small but passable life.
And then, of course, the end of the world happened.
Justin Cronin Better Things Sayings By Justin Cronin: There was something in the pages of these books that had the power to make
I've spent my life wondering when I would earn the right to be a man again. Despite the undeserved good fortune of finding my true love, I always held a kernel of bitterness in my heart that things were not different... I will never be the man that I was. That man is dead - slain - for better or for worse, by my life as the Beast. In your words, the world does not need who I was.Jack Heckel Better Things Sayings By Jack Heckel: I've spent my life wondering when I would earn the right to be a man
All change brings bad things and good things to replace the bad and good things that were before. It is natural to look back and say it was better before - but that does not make it true. Different is not worse. It is just different.Patricia Briggs Better Things Sayings By Patricia Briggs: All change brings bad things and good things to replace the bad and good things
The way I see things, God loves you the same whether you're being elegant or not. It feels much better when you are, but even when you can't fake it, God still listens to your prayers. Again and again I tell God I need help, and God says, 'Well isn't that fabulous? Because I need help too. So you go get that old woman over there some water, and I'll figure out what we're going to do about your stuff.Anne Lamott Better Things Sayings By Anne Lamott: The way I see things, God loves you the same whether you're being elegant or
All he'd ever wanted was for nothing to change. Or for things to change only in the right ways, improving little by little, day by day, forever. It sounded crazy when you said it like that, but that was what baseball had promised him, what Westish College had promised him, what Schwartzy had promised him. The dream of every day the same. Every day was like the day before but a little bit better. You ran the stadium a little faster. You bench-pressed a little more. You hit the ball a little harder in the cage; you watched the tape with Schwartzy afterward and gained a little insight into your swing. Your swing grew a little simpler. Everything grew simpler, little by little. You ate the same food, work up at the same time, wore the same clothes. Hitches, bad habits, useless thoughts
whatever you didn't need slowly fell away. Whatever was simple and useful remained. You improved little by little til the day it all became perfect and stayed that way. Forever.
Chad Harbach Better Things Sayings By Chad Harbach: All he'd ever wanted was for nothing to change. Or for things to change only
Our system freed the individual genius of man. Released him to fly as high & as far as his own talent & energy would take him. We allocate resources not by government. decision but by the millions of decisions customers make when they go into the market. place to buy. If something seems too high-priced we buy something else. Thus resources are steered toward those things the people want most at the price they are willing to pay. It may not be a perfect system but it's better than any other that's ever been tried.Ronald Reagan Better Things Sayings By Ronald Reagan: Our system freed the individual genius of man. Released him to fly as high &

It gets you in good shape, so it's necessary.Logan Mankins Better Things Sayings By Logan Mankins: I understand what training camp is for. It's needed. It's necessary, so it's just one
The reality is that Jesus knows exactly how things really are, and in fact he knows how things really are better than anyone else. We may look over the ethos of the Sermon on the Mount and find the whole thing utterly impractical toward getting ahead in the world, but one of the underlying points of the Sermon is that getting ahead in the world is a losing gambit to begin with. We come to Jesus's teaching looking for tips on playing checkers, when all along he is playingJared C. Wilson Better Things Sayings By Jared C. Wilson: The reality is that Jesus knows exactly how things really are, and in fact he
But at some point, we've got to have disciplined play and have got to coach better. I'm not putting it on the players. We've got to coach them to tackle and block better. It's as simple as that. If we can do those things, we'll have a chance.Steve Spurrier Better Things Sayings By Steve Spurrier: But at some point, we've got to have disciplined play and have got to coach

Even if he ran after her, what could he say in five minutes that would fix anything? And how exactly did he want to fix things? His shoulders slumped. What had he just done to her for a kiss that wasn't even that great? And yet he wanted another one. What did that mean exactly? Did it mean he wanted another kiss badly enough to fight August for her? Could he be sure he was any better for her than a Whitaker?Melissa Jagears Better Things Sayings By Melissa Jagears: Even if he ran after her, what could he say in five minutes that would
Nothing is too great or too good to be true. Do not believe that we can imagine things better than they are. In the long run, in the ultimate outlook, in the eye of the Creator, the possibilities of existence, the possibilities open to us, are beyond our imagination.Joseph Wood Krutch Better Things Sayings By Joseph Wood Krutch: Nothing is too great or too good to be true. Do not believe that we
I have just drunk the waters of Changsha
And come to eat the fish of Wuchang.
Now I am swimming across the great Yangtze,
Looking afar to the open sky of Chu.
Let the wind blow and waves beat,
Better far than idly strolling in a courtyard.
Today I am at ease.
"It was by a stream that the Master said--
'Thus do things flow away!' "
Sails move with the wind.
Tortoise and Snake are still.
Great plans are afoot:
A bridge will fly to span the north and south,
Turning a deep chasm into a thoroughfare;
Walls of stone will stand upstream to the west
To hold back Wushan's clouds and rain
Till a smooth lake rises in the narrow gorges.
The mountain goddess if she is still there
Will marvel at a world so changed.
Mao Zedong Better Things Sayings By Mao Zedong: I have just drunk the waters of Changsha And come to eat the fish of
Many things are better for silence than for speech: others are better for speech than for stationery.Lord Acton Better Things Sayings By Lord Acton: Many things are better for silence than for speech: others are better for speech than
I am a great believer in high-priced people.

If a thing cost a lot it
The hardest part of writing a story is making bad things happen to good people. The hardest part of writing horror is knowing that it won't really get better for them.Allison M. Dickson Better Things Sayings By Allison M. Dickson: The hardest part of writing a story is making bad things happen to good people.
Filmmaking is, a sort of uncontrolled process. I think it's very important to be open to the unexpected and at the same time, of course, maintain your vision, be open to the all the things you didn't think of yourself that can make the film better.Dagur Kari Better Things Sayings By Dagur Kari: Filmmaking is, a sort of uncontrolled process. I think it's very important to be open

I used to write things that might have sounded better coming out of an older person's voice or vision. Hence, "grandpa-boy." I'm an old man, but I'm a boy. A really old boy!Paul Westerberg Better Things Sayings By Paul Westerberg: I used to write things that might have sounded better coming out of an older

You deserve someone better than me. Someone young and idealistic ... someone who can experience things for the first time along with you.

All I can promise is that I'll want you until my last breath.Lisa Kleypas Better Things Sayings By Lisa Kleypas: You deserve someone better than me. Someone young and idealistic ... someone who can experience
Any time you can involve fake mustaches, things are just better.Graham Elliot Better Things Sayings By Graham Elliot: Any time you can involve fake mustaches, things are just better.
Perhaps some of us will have learned enough to make a difference, to influence things for the better, to wait until the moment is right, and then act.
And despite appearances, despite all indications to the contrary, despite reticence for fear of what others might think, I still felt we all possessed this quiet belief.
A quiet belief in angels.
R.J. Ellory Better Things Sayings By R.J. Ellory: Perhaps some of us will have learned enough to make a difference, to influence things
It's been really slow obviously, but I'm not worried about that. I feel like from where I was a couple months ago, things are a lot better. Just being able to skate and stuff was encouraging. Hopefully the next step doesn't have any hurdles.Sidney Crosby Better Things Sayings By Sidney Crosby: It's been really slow obviously, but I'm not worried about that. I feel like from

But then, maybe loneliness didn't have anything to do with how many people we had in our lives. Maybe it was really about how we felt on the inside.

And maybe I should go ahead and let myself feel these things, instead of always trying to push down and deny every negative emotion. Maybe they were just a part of me, and maybe it was okay to not always feel happy and positive. I was forever trying to silence that other part of myself, but maybe I'd feel more whole if I stopped doing that.
Alexa Land Better Things Sayings By Alexa Land: But then, maybe loneliness didn't have anything to do with how many people we had
The time is ripe for looking back over the day, the week, the year, and trying to figure out where we have come from and where we are going to, for sifting through the things we have done and the things we have left undone for a clue to who we are and who, for better or worse, we are becoming. But again and again we avoid the long thoughts ... .We cling to the present out of wariness of the past. And why not, after all? We get confused. We need such escape as we can find. But there is a deeper need yet, I think, and that is the need - not all the time, surely, but from time to time - to enter that still room within us all where the past lives on as a part of the present, where the dead are alive again, where we are most alive ourselves to turnings and to where our journeys have brought us. The name of the room is Remember - the room where with patience, with charity, with quietness of heart, we remember consciously to remember the lives we have lived.Frederick Buechner Better Things Sayings By Frederick Buechner: The time is ripe for looking back over the day, the week, the year, and

Better to find one thing to live for than a thousand things to be against.Marty Rubin Better Things Sayings By Marty Rubin: Better to find one thing to live for than a thousand things to be against.
I'll go to another country, go to another shore,
find another city better than this one.
Whatever I try to do is fated to turn out wrong
and my heart -like something dead- lies buried.
How long can I let my mind moulder in this place?
Wherever I turn, wherever I look,
I see the black ruins of my life, here,
where I've spent so many years, wasted them, destroyed them totally.
You won't find a new country, won't find another shore.
This city will always pursue you.
You'll walk the same streets, grow old
in the same neighbourhoods, turn grey in these same houses.
You'll always end up in this city. Don't hope for things elsewhere:
there's no ship for you, there's no road.
Now that you've wasted your life here, in this small corner,
you've destroyed it everywhere in the world.
Constantine P. Cavafy Better Things Sayings By Constantine P. Cavafy: I'll go to another country, go to another shore,find another city better than this one.Whatever

Maybe it isn't

What I believe in my own life
Things get better, or worse, depending on your point of view.Jay Asher Better Things Sayings By Jay Asher: Things get better, or worse, depending on your point of view.
I have sometimes asked myself whether my country is the better for my having lived at all? I do not know that it is. I have been the instrument of doing the following things; but they would have been done by others; some of them, perhaps, a little better.Thomas Jefferson Better Things Sayings By Thomas Jefferson: I have sometimes asked myself whether my country is the better for my having lived
Success is a lot of things. In my personal life it is to have my own family with me, to give all my best to let my daughter have a better life than me, better choices.Ali Suliman Better Things Sayings By Ali Suliman: Success is a lot of things. In my personal life it is to have my
Some have an idea that the reason we in this country discard things so readily is because we have so much. The facts are exactly opposite-the reason we have so much is simply because we discard things so readily. We replace the old in return for something that will serve us better.Alfred P. Sloan Better Things Sayings By Alfred P. Sloan: Some have an idea that the reason we in this country discard things so readily
The world is better shaped by freedom. Even if it means giving foolish men their head. At the heart of all things, nestled among Yggdrasil's roots, is the trick of creation that puts to shame all of Loki's deceptions. What saves us all are the deeds of fools as often as the acts of the wise. "GoMark Lawrence Better Things Sayings By Mark Lawrence: The world is better shaped by freedom. Even if it means giving foolish men their
The Old Testament tells us to love our neighbors, the New Testament to love our enemies. The moral rationale seems to be: Love your neighbors and enemies; that way you won't kill them. But frankly, I don't love my neighbors, to say nothing of my enemies. Better, then, is the following idea: Don't kill your neighbors or enemies, even if you don't love them. . . . What really has expanded is not so much a circle of empathy as a circle of rights - a commitment that other living things, no matter how distant or dissimilar, be safe from harm and exploitation. AndPaul Bloom Better Things Sayings By Paul Bloom: The Old Testament tells us to love our neighbors, the New Testament to love our
And I wish I was more like Albert. Seeing him shuffle away in those sneakers makes me want to be better. I'm not perfect, but at least I'm not mean.
And then my heart sinks because I realize that I just was.
I guess I did it because I was lonely. Now I know that there are worse things than being lonely.
Lynda Mullaly Hunt Better Things Sayings By Lynda Mullaly Hunt: And I wish I was more like Albert. Seeing him shuffle away in those sneakers
Perfection may be an impossible goal, but habits help us to do better. Making headway toward a good habit, doing better than before, saves us from facing the end of another year with the mournful wish, once again, that we'd done things differently.Gretchen Rubin Better Things Sayings By Gretchen Rubin: Perfection may be an impossible goal, but habits help us to do better. Making headway
When you making a piece of comedy entertainment, the audience is a big component there. You do have to end up getting rid of things that you love, but in the interest of making a movie that's not longer than two hours, and in the interest of when every joke hopefully is good enough, then everybody looks good. You cut things that you love, but ultimately it's for the greater good of making the whole movie better.Jason H. Moore Better Things Sayings By Jason H. Moore: When you making a piece of comedy entertainment, the audience is a big component there.
One of the things I firmly believe about seemingly risky decisions is that you can't fully imagine how things can be better while you're in the thing you don't quite like.Jeffrey Veen Better Things Sayings By Jeffrey Veen: One of the things I firmly believe about seemingly risky decisions is that you can't
Why do you continue your... charade? Your current position would seem to be a good one for revealing the truth'.
'A few people know, sir. Bobby, Jane, some of the Leatherbacks. For the rest... it just seems easier to keep things as they are.' Winter thought of Novus and his tirade. 'It would be one thing if I had just joined up, but it's been so long. People might be upset that they'd been fooled. And...'
Janus raised an eyebrow. Winter hesitated.
'It's all right for the Girl's Own,' she said. 'They joined up because Vordan needs them, and when the war's over they'll go home. I... I haven't anywhere to go.' She tugged the collar of her uniform. 'This is who I am now, for better or worse. This is my home. After the war, maybe it will be all right for a woman to keep this on, but... maybe not.'
Winter found her throat getting thick. She'd never put it that way before, never even thought it so bluntly. This is my home.

Realism and superrealism are what I'm after. This world is full of things the eye doesn't see. The camera can see more, and often 10 times better.Andreas Feininger Better Things Sayings By Andreas Feininger: Realism and superrealism are what I'm after. This world is full of things the eye
O this idea that we fail to stop these things because there's not awareness about them, or that we need better early warning information, I'm increasingly skeptical of.Rebecca Hamilton Better Things Sayings By Rebecca Hamilton: O this idea that we fail to stop these things because there's not awareness about
And friendship, and love." Leia knew that Luke's selflessness in coming for her on the Death Star, and Han's unspoken devotion in saving her on Hoth, had not only kept her alive but also changed the entire course of the galaxy for the better.

People change, couples change, and you have to be able to accept what is coming without trying to hang on things that you had before that they may disappear but they may transform into something that is even better.Antonio Banderas Better Things Sayings By Antonio Banderas: People change, couples change, and you have to be able to accept what is coming
I think people in England take things for granted, we complain about our NHS system and yes it's not perfect but believe me it's far better than what they've got here.Alesha Dixon Better Things Sayings By Alesha Dixon: I think people in England take things for granted, we complain about our NHS system
I would say that, in the future, the book will be reserved for things that function best as a book. So, if I need a textbook that's going to be out of date because of new technological inventions, you're better off having it where you can download the supplements or the update.Art Spiegelman Better Things Sayings By Art Spiegelman: I would say that, in the future, the book will be reserved for things that
I think the best thing we can do is sell that idea of smaller government - of fiscal responsibility vs. the Obama record. Obama made promises, and on every promise in which he's actually delivered, things have gotten worse instead of better. He said if we get ObamaCare it'll help, but health care prices went up.Richard Mourdock Better Things Sayings By Richard Mourdock: I think the best thing we can do is sell that idea of smaller government
Even if we are occupied with important things and even if we attain honour or fall into misfortune, still let us remember how good it once was here, when we were all together united by a good and kind feeling which made us perhaps better than we are.Fyodor Dostoevsky Better Things Sayings By Fyodor Dostoevsky: Even if we are occupied with important things and even if we attain honour or
In our world no one ever knows what to do, and everyone's just as clueless and full of crap as everyone else, and you have to figure it all out by yourself. And even after you've figured it out and done it, you'll never know whether you were right or wrong. You'll never know if you put the ring in the right volcano, or if things might have gone better if you hadn't.Lev Grossman Better Things Sayings By Lev Grossman: In our world no one ever knows what to do, and everyone's just as clueless
It was because he wanted there to be conspirators. It was much better to imagine men in some smoky rooms somewhere, made mad and cynical by privilege and power, plotting over the brandy. You had to cling to this sort of image, because if you didn't then you might have to fact the fact that bad things happened because ordinary people, the kind who brushed the dog and told their children bedtime stories, were capable of then going out and doing horrible things to other ordinary people. It was much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us.Terry Pratchett Better Things Sayings By Terry Pratchett: It was because he wanted there to be conspirators. It was much better to imagine
