Almost everyone in heaven has someone on Earth they watch, a loved one, a friend or even a stranger who was once kind, who offered warm food or a bright smile when one of us had needed it. And when I wasn't watching I could hear the others talking to those they loved on Earth: just as fruitlessly as me, I'm afraid. A one-sided card cajoling and coaching of the young, a one way loving and desiring of their mates, a single-sided card that could never get signed.Alice Sebold Fruitlessly Sayings By Alice Sebold: Almost everyone in heaven has someone on Earth they watch, a loved one, a friend
I expect you are wondering why I had not considered the possibility of unemployment. The reason being that my mind had a very different recollection of what unemployed men looked like. The jobless man I remembered from the past went out onto the street with a placard around his neck that read "Looking for any type of work". When he'd had enough of drifting fruitlessly around in this manner, he would remove the placard, grab a red flag handed to him by a loitering Bolshevist, and return to the street.Timur Vermes Fruitlessly Sayings By Timur Vermes: I expect you are wondering why I had not considered the possibility of unemployment. The
Above all, in my anger, I was sad. Isn't that always the way, that at the heart of the fire is a frozen kernel of sorrow that the fire is trying
valiantly, fruitlessly
to eradicate.

Gratuitous redundancy makes prose difficult not just because readers have to duplicate the effort of figuring something out, but because they naturally assume that when a writer says two things she means two things, and fruitlessly search for the nonexistent second point.Steven Pinker Fruitlessly Sayings By Steven Pinker: Gratuitous redundancy makes prose difficult not just because readers have to duplicate the effort of
For even though the rest of the city

starved and searched fruitlessly for work and slept in a humpy in the park, society's finest could still squander their money however they saw fit.
The unemployed, they would say, were lazy. If they worked harder, they'd do as well as Mr. Harry Moneypants was doing, who'd earned his vast fortune by having the foresightedness of selecting rich parents, who had, in their time, also cleverly selected rich parents.

I passed two idle days, watching fruitlessly.
I took to my hasty pacing to and fro again and succeeded, not without difficulty, in gaining a few days of respite, in making myself forget for a while.
I dwelt within these walls quiet in a feverish sort of way and inactive as a prisoner. I walked up and down my room a great part of the day, attracted by the opening in the wall and not daring to go away to a distance from it again.
The long hours went by, and in the evening I was worn out by my indefatigable hope.

In the ardor of his enthusiasm, a youth set forth in quest of a man of whom he might take counsel as to his future, but after long search and many disappointments, he came near relinquishing the pursuit as hopeless, when suddenly it occurred to him that one must first be a man to find a man, and profiting by this suggestion, he set himself to the work of becoming himself the man he had been seeking so long and fruitlessly.Amos Bronson Alcott Fruitlessly Sayings By Amos Bronson Alcott: In the ardor of his enthusiasm, a youth set forth in quest of a man
Our life consists not in the pursuit of material success but in the quest for worthy spiritual growth. Our entire earthly existence is but a transitional stage in the movement toward something higher, and we must not stumble and fall, nor must we linger fruitlessly on one rung of the ladder. Material laws alone do not explain our life or give it direction. The laws of physics and physiology will never reveal the indisputable manner in which the Creator constantly, day in and day out, participates in the life of each of us, unfailingly granting us the energy of existence; when this assistance leaves us, we die. And in the life of our entire planet, the Divine Spirit surely moves with no less force: this we must grasp in our dark and terrible hour.Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Fruitlessly Sayings By Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn: Our life consists not in the pursuit of material success but in the quest for

Instead of suffering fruitlessly through your trials, be sure to keep your eyes fixed on your heavenly Father who has good purposes in all you experience. Check yourself for sin that has not been dealt with. Lean on the grace and goodness of God, and you will find relief.Joe Thorn Fruitlessly Sayings By Joe Thorn: Instead of suffering fruitlessly through your trials, be sure to keep your eyes fixed on
It should come as no surprise that writers take an interest in punctuation. I have been told that the dying words of one famous 20th-century writer were, "I should have used fewer semicolons" - and although I have spent months fruitlessly trying to track down the chap responsible, I believe it none the less. If it turns out that no one actually did say this on their deathbed, I shall certainly save it up for my own.Lynne Truss Fruitlessly Sayings By Lynne Truss: It should come as no surprise that writers take an interest in punctuation. I have
Men who have flattered themselves into this opinion of their own abilities, look down on all who waste their lives over books, as a race of inferior beings condemned by nature to perpetual pupilage, and fruitlessly endeavouring to remedy their barrenness by incessant cultivation, or succour their feebleness by subsidiary strength. They presume that none would be more industrious than they, if they were not more sensible of deficiences; and readily conclude, that he who places no confidence in his own powers owes his modesty only to his weakness.Samuel Johnson Fruitlessly Sayings By Samuel Johnson: Men who have flattered themselves into this opinion of their own abilities, look down on
This is the third time that, in the course of six years, during which I have had the lead of the Opposition in the House of Commons, I have stormed the Treasury Benches: twice, fruitlessly, the third time with a tin kettle to my tail which rendered the race hopeless. You cannot, therefore, be surprised, that I am a little wearied of these barren victories, which like Alma , Inkerman, and Balaclava , may be glorious but are certainly nothing more.Benjamin Disraeli Fruitlessly Sayings By Benjamin Disraeli: This is the third time that, in the course of six years, during which I
Those who have not obtained the Blessed Vision, the Blessed Vision of the Darshan of the True Guru, the Almighty Lord God they have fruitlessly, uselessly wasted their whole lives in vain.Guru Nanak Fruitlessly Sayings By Guru Nanak: Those who have not obtained the Blessed Vision, the Blessed Vision of the Darshan of
I deserve a swift kick in the shorts for all the times I've stubbornly wound my way through the library stacks, my mule head leading the way, searching fruitlessly for information a librarian could put in my hands in a matter of minutes.Michael Perry Fruitlessly Sayings By Michael Perry: I deserve a swift kick in the shorts for all the times I've stubbornly wound
Among the many who fruitlessly attempted thoughout history to create a time machine, one individual actually succeeded. He was surprisingly not a human.Benson Grayson Fruitlessly Sayings By Benson Grayson: Among the many who fruitlessly attempted thoughout history to create a time machine, one individual
One bad habit Teall wishes to cure us of right away is mistreating the hyphen by putting it between an adverb ending in ly and a participle. His example is a headline: "Use of 'Methodist' Is Newly-Defined." Lavishing sympathy on the hyphen, he laments, "Did you ever see a hyphen more completely wasted? A hyphen more unnecessarily and fruitlessly employed?" EvenMary Norris Fruitlessly Sayings By Mary Norris: One bad habit Teall wishes to cure us of right away is mistreating the hyphen
Free yourself from fruitlessly worrying about things you can't control and put your energy towards the things you can. Seize the day and take effective action on things you can change.Steve Maraboli Fruitlessly Sayings By Steve Maraboli: Free yourself from fruitlessly worrying about things you can't control and put your energy towards
And what he contemplated was death. Some people complained when death came top early and claimed a child, a young mother, or a sailor with a family to provide for. He'd never understood that. Of course, it was a tragedy for those left behind and for the person who'd been robbed of the greater part of life. But it wasn't unfair. Death was beyond such notions. It seemed to him that the bereaved often forgot their grief at a death in favor of railing fruitlessly against life's injustices. After all, no one would dream of saying that the wind was unfair to the trees and the flowers. True, you might feel uneasy when the sun switched off its light, or ice gave your ship a dangerous list. But indignant, outraged, or angry, no. It was pointless. Nature was neither fair nor unfair. Those terms belonged to the world of men.Carsten Jensen Fruitlessly Sayings By Carsten Jensen: And what he contemplated was death. Some people complained when death came top early and
Men die, heroically or fruitlessly, but man carries on. In Israel it is the same: the farmer must till the fields, the young must make love, and the photographer must, I suppose, be ready to photograph it all.Leonard Freed Fruitlessly Sayings By Leonard Freed: Men die, heroically or fruitlessly, but man carries on. In Israel it is the same:
