From lips indifferent of her death I heard,
Indifferently I listened to it, too,'
were echoing in my heart. O youth, youth! little dost thou care for anything; thou art master, as it were, of all the treasures of the universe - even sorrow gives thee pleasure, even grief thou canst turn to thy profit; thou art self-confident and insolent; thou sayest, 'I alone am living - look you!' - but thy days fly by all the while, and vanish without trace or reckoning; and everything in thee vanishes, like wax in the sun, like snow ... . And, perhaps, the whole secret of thy charm lies, not in being able to do anything, but in being able to think thou wilt do anything; lies just in thy throwing to the winds, forces which thou couldst not make other use of; in each of us gravely regarding himself as a prodigal, gravely supposing that he is justified in saying, 'Oh, what might I not have done if I had not wasted my time!
Ivan Turgenev Indifferently Sayings By Ivan Turgenev: From lips indifferent of her death I heard, Indifferently I listened to it, too,'were echoing
People never write calmly but when they write indifferently.Mary Wortley Montagu Indifferently Sayings By Mary Wortley Montagu: People never write calmly but when they write indifferently.
O how blessed it would be never to marry, or grow old; but to spend one's life innocently and indifferently among the trees and rivers which alone can keep one cool and childlike in the midst of the troubles of the world!Virginia Woolf Indifferently Sayings By Virginia Woolf: O how blessed it would be never to marry, or grow old; but to spend
By consequence, or train of thoughts, I understand that succession of one thought to another which is called, to distinguish it from discourse in words, mental discourse. When a man thinketh on anything whatsoever, his next thought after is not altogether so casual as it seems to be. Not every thought to every thought succeeds indifferently.Thomas Hobbes Indifferently Sayings By Thomas Hobbes: By consequence, or train of thoughts, I understand that succession of one thought to another
What can be seductive about the eternal nothing is that the finest day is indifferently this one or any other like it.Rene Char Indifferently Sayings By Rene Char: What can be seductive about the eternal nothing is that the finest day is indifferently
Sometimes, I act indifferently to get your attention, You take all my worries and pain away, and fill my days with joy. I feel good taking suggestions from you not because I can't make decisions alone but because, you complete me.Anuj Tiwari Indifferently Sayings By Anuj Tiwari: Sometimes, I act indifferently to get your attention, You take all my worries and pain
There are things that happen and leave no discernible trace, are not spoken or written of, though it would be very wrong to say that subsequent events go on indifferently, all the same, as though such things had never been.A.S. Byatt Indifferently Sayings By A.S. Byatt: There are things that happen and leave no discernible trace, are not spoken or written
Given what the stigmatized individual may well face upon entering a mixed social situation, he may anticipatorily respond by defensive cowering. This may be illustrated from an early study of some German unemployed during the Depression, the words being those of a 43-year-old mason: How hard and humiliating it is to bear the name of an unemployed man. When I go out, I cast down my eyes because I feel myself wholly inferior. When I go along the street, it seems to me that I can't be compared with an average citizen, that everybody is pointing at me with his finger. I instinctively avoid meeting anyone. Former acquaintances and friends of better times are no longer so cordial. They greet me indifferently when we meet. They no longer offer me a cigarette and their eyes seem to say, "You are not worth it, you don't work."37Erving Goffman Indifferently Sayings By Erving Goffman: Given what the stigmatized individual may well face upon entering a mixed social situation, he
The very cunning conceal their cunning; the indifferently shrewd boast of it.Christian Nestell Bovee Indifferently Sayings By Christian Nestell Bovee: The very cunning conceal their cunning; the indifferently shrewd boast of it.
I really believe that at the start of the journey the condemned man, sitting in the tumbril, must feel that an infinite life still stretches ahead of him. However, the houses roll by one by one, the tumbril rumbles on - oh, that's nothing, it's still a long way to the turning into the next street, and he continues to look keenly to the left and the right at the thousands of indifferently curious people with their eyes riveted upon him, and he continues vaguely to imagine that, like all of them, he is still a human being. But here's the turning into the next street! Never mind though, never mind, still a whole street to go. And no matter how many houses he passes, he still thinks: "There are still a lot of houses." And so to the very end, right up until they reach the town square.Fyodor Dostoyevsky Indifferently Sayings By Fyodor Dostoyevsky: I really believe that at the start of the journey the condemned man, sitting in
And yet every so often, the heart of America, shuddering with indignation, sends a nervous spasm through the gentle back of the Andes, and tumultuous shock waves assault the surface of the land. Three times the cuppola of proud Santo Domingo has collapsed from on high to the rhythm of broken bones and its worn walls have opened and fallen too. But the foundations they rest on are unmoved, the great blocks of the Temple of the Sun exhibit their gray stone indifferently; however colossal the disaster befalling its oppressor, not one of its huge rocks shifts from its place.Ernesto Che Guevara Indifferently Sayings By Ernesto Che Guevara: And yet every so often, the heart of America, shuddering with indignation, sends a nervous
It is salutary for us to learn to hold cheap such things, be they good or evil, as attach indifferently to good men and bad, and to covet those good things which belong only to good men, and flee those evils which belong only to evil men.Saint Augustine Indifferently Sayings By Saint Augustine: It is salutary for us to learn to hold cheap such things, be they good
Experience is the only teacher, and we get his lesson indifferently in any school.Ralph Waldo Emerson Indifferently Sayings By Ralph Waldo Emerson: Experience is the only teacher, and we get his lesson indifferently in any school.
There is none of you who would not publicly exclaim that everyone should be moderator and arbitrator in his own matter, who would not command all citizens to use rivers and public places equally and indifferently, who would not with all his power defend the liberty of going hither and thither and trading.Hugo Grotius Indifferently Sayings By Hugo Grotius: There is none of you who would not publicly exclaim that everyone should be moderator
I never disliked humanity more than when I watched how indifferently they reacted to creationKeith Buckley Indifferently Sayings By Keith Buckley: I never disliked humanity more than when I watched how indifferently they reacted to creation
Bough of a tree to the rain ... he turns the phrase over in his mouth as if it were fine wine, trying to guess its vintage, realizing somewhat indifferently that it is beyond him.Laszlo Krasznahorkai Indifferently Sayings By Laszlo Krasznahorkai: Bough of a tree to the rain ... he turns the phrase over in his
Has your work become very easy? Do you find you can do it with little effort? Has it ceased to impose any strain or fatigue upon you? Do you no longer feel loss of vitality after a long spell of it? Can you now do it as easy as water rolls off a duck's back? If so, look out! Do some stock-taking. Examine your output ... Work done with little effort is likely to yield little result. Every job can be done excellently or indifferently. Excellence necessitates effort-hard, sustained, concentrated effort.B.C. Forbes Indifferently Sayings By B.C. Forbes: Has your work become very easy? Do you find you can do it with little
History is so indifferently rich, that a case for almost any conclusion from it can be made by a selection of instances.Will Durant Indifferently Sayings By Will Durant: History is so indifferently rich, that a case for almost any conclusion from it can
She's a nice girl. Not my type." "You don't like them nice?" He had another cigarette going. The smoke was being fanned away from his face by his hand. "I like smooth shiny girls, hardboiled and loaded with sin." "They take you to the cleaners," Randall said indifferently.Raymond Chandler Indifferently Sayings By Raymond Chandler: She's a nice girl. Not my type." "You don't like them nice?" He had another
Both as to high and low indifferently, men are prepossessed, charmed, fascinated by success; successful crimes are praised very much like virtue itself, and good fortune is not far from occupying the place of the whole cycle of virtues. It must be an atrocious act, a base and hateful deed, which success would not be able to justify.Jean De La Bruyere Indifferently Sayings By Jean De La Bruyere: Both as to high and low indifferently, men are prepossessed, charmed, fascinated by success; successful
At Oreanda they sat on a beach not far from the church, looked down at the sea, and were silent. Yalta was barely visible through the morning mist; white clouds rested motionlessly on the mountaintops. The leaves did not stir on the trees, cicadas twanged, and the monotonous muffled sound of the sea that rose from below spoke of the peace, the eternal sleep awaiting us. So it rumbled below when there was no Yalta, no Oreanda here; so it rumbles now, and it will rumble as indifferently and as hollowly when we are no more. And in this constancy, in this complete indifference to the life and death of each of us, there lies, perhaps, a pledge of our eternal salvation, of the unceasing advance of life upon earth, of unceasing movement towards perfection.Anton Chekhov Indifferently Sayings By Anton Chekhov: At Oreanda they sat on a beach not far from the church, looked down at
It is far more important to resist apathy than anarchy or despotism, for apathy can give rise, almost indifferently, to either one.Alexis De Tocqueville Indifferently Sayings By Alexis De Tocqueville: It is far more important to resist apathy than anarchy or despotism, for apathy can
I have seen it over and over, the same sea, the same,
slightly, indifferently swinging above the stones,
icily free above the stones,
above the stones and then the world.
If you should dip your hand in,
your wrist would ache immediately,
your bones would begin to ache and your hand would burn
as if the water were a transmutation of fire
that feeds on stones and burns with a dark gray flame.
If you tasted it, it would first taste bitter,
then briny, then surely burn your tongue.
It is like what we imagine knowledge to be:
dark, salt, clear, moving, utterly free,
drawn form the cold hard mouth
of the world, derived from the rocky breasts
forever, flowing and drawn, and since
our knowledge is historical, flowing, and flown.
Elizabeth Bishop Indifferently Sayings By Elizabeth Bishop: I have seen it over and over, the same sea, the same,slightly, indifferently swinging above
Women have a genius for love; men can only learn the art indifferently.Joseph De Maistre Indifferently Sayings By Joseph De Maistre: Women have a genius for love; men can only learn the art indifferently.
I remembered that she had also looked at me in that way in the past, from that remote dream where I made the chair spin on its back legs and remained facing a strange woman with ashen eyes. It was in that dream that I asked her for the first time: 'Who are you?' And she said to me: 'I don't remember.' I said to her: 'But I think we've seen each other before.' And she said, indifferently: 'I think I dreamed about you once, about this same room.' And I told her: 'That's it. I'm beginning to remember now.' And she said: 'How strange. It's certain that we've met in other dreams.Gabriel Garcia Marquez Indifferently Sayings By Gabriel Garcia Marquez: I remembered that she had also looked at me in that way in the past,
Set honour in one eye and death i' th' other,
And I will look on both indifferently
William Shakespeare Indifferently Sayings By William Shakespeare: Set honour in one eye and death i' th' other,And I will look on both
Perfectly good fruit, simply in being bumped about by chance, indifferently sniffed at, idly handled and overlooked, is sometimes gradually made unfit for those who would otherwise choose it. So it is with lovers.James Guida Indifferently Sayings By James Guida: Perfectly good fruit, simply in being bumped about by chance, indifferently sniffed at, idly handled
At first cautiously, later indifferently, at last desperately, I wandered up the stairs and along the pavement of the inextricable palace. (Afterwards I learned that the width and height of the steps were not constant, a fact which made me understand the singular fatigue they produced). 'This palace is a fabrication of the gods,' I thought at the beginning. I explored the uninhabited interiors and corrected myself: ' The gods who built it have died.' I noted its peculiarities and said: 'The gods who built it were mad.' I said it, I know, with an incomprehensible reprobation which was almost remorse, with more intellectual horror than palpable fear ...
... 'This City' (I thought) 'is so horrible that its mere existence and perdurance, though in the midst of a secret desert, contaminates the past and the future and in some way even jeopardizes the stars.
Jorge Luis Borges Indifferently Sayings By Jorge Luis Borges: At first cautiously, later indifferently, at last desperately, I wandered up the stairs and along
I Have often thought if the minds of men were laid open, we should see but little difference between that of the wise man and that of the fool. There are infinite reveries, numberless extravagances, and a perpetual train of vanities which pass through both. The great difference is, that the first knows how to pick and cull his thoughts for conversation, by suppressing some, and communicating others; whereas the other lets them all indifferently fly out in words.Joseph Addison Indifferently Sayings By Joseph Addison: I Have often thought if the minds of men were laid open, we should see
The restaurant was waning, indifferently relaxing its illusion: for the late-comers a private illusion took its place. Their table seemed to stand on their own carpet; they had a sensation of custom, sedateness, of being inside small walls, as though dining at home again after her journey. She told him about her Mount Morris solitary suppers, in the middle of the library, the rim of the tray just not touching the base of the lamp ... the fire behind her back softly falling in on its own ash-no it had not been possible to feel lonely among those feeling things.Elizabeth Bowen Indifferently Sayings By Elizabeth Bowen: The restaurant was waning, indifferently relaxing its illusion: for the late-comers a private illusion took
Look whether it be indifferently, as well for sins secret as open, what you find to be your best cordials to comfort you, whether God's Word, or natural means.Thomas Hooker Indifferently Sayings By Thomas Hooker: Look whether it be indifferently, as well for sins secret as open, what you find
With this last adherent, Florence hurried away in the advancing morning, and the strengthening sunshine, to the City. The roar soon grew more loud, the passengers more numerous, the shops more busy, until she was carried onward in a stream of life setting that way, and flowing, indifferently, past marts and mansions, prisons, churches, market-places, wealth, poverty, good, and evil, like the broad river, side by side with it, awakened from its dreams of rushes, willows, and green moss, and rolling on, turbid and troubled, among the works and cares of men, to the deep sea.Charles Dickens Indifferently Sayings By Charles Dickens: With this last adherent, Florence hurried away in the advancing morning, and the strengthening sunshine,
I believe we accept too indifferently the fact of infantile amnesia - that is, the failure of memory for the first years of our lives - and fail to find in it a strange riddle. We forget of what great intellectual accomplishments and of what complicated emotions a child of four years is capable. We really ought to wonder why the memory of later years has, as a rule, retained so little of these psychic processes, especially as we have every reason for assuming that these same forgotten childhood activities have not glided off without leaving a trace in the development of the person, but that they have left a definite influence for all future time.Sigmund Freud Indifferently Sayings By Sigmund Freud: I believe we accept too indifferently the fact of infantile amnesia - that is, the
They have neither thought nor being, and merely repeat indifferently and uncomprehendingly everything they hear, retaining within themselves an absolute void.Pierre-Ambroise Choderlos De Laclos Indifferently Sayings By Pierre-Ambroise Choderlos De Laclos: They have neither thought nor being, and merely repeat indifferently and uncomprehendingly everything they hear,
Nature indifferently copied is far superior to the best idealities.John James Audubon Indifferently Sayings By John James Audubon: Nature indifferently copied is far superior to the best idealities.
It is better to teach a few things perfectly than many things indifferently.Andre Maurois Indifferently Sayings By Andre Maurois: It is better to teach a few things perfectly than many things indifferently.
Men to the left! Women to the right!
Eight words spokern quietly, indifferently, without emotion. Eight simple, short words. Yet that was the moment when I left my mother.
Elie Wiesel Indifferently Sayings By Elie Wiesel: Men to the left! Women to the right!Eight words spokern quietly, indifferently, without emotion. Eight
I never drive when I can ride," said his lordship indifferently.
"I make no doubt at all that had I been Mary Challoner you would have been glad enough to have
borne me company!"
The Marquis was snuffing one of the candles, but he looked up at that, and there was a glint in his eye.
"That, my dear, is quite another matter," he said.
Georgette Heyer Indifferently Sayings By Georgette Heyer: I never drive when I can ride," said his lordship indifferently."I make no doubt at
...kids marked by the special thinness that one has only once, the transparent thinness of early maturity, when, without knowing it, you are immortal. And completely permeable. When you can walk indifferently down the street with a lover because you have become that lover. Two small people without dislike of suspicion.Andrea Lee Indifferently Sayings By Andrea Lee: ...kids marked by the special thinness that one has only once, the transparent thinness of
I'm not lucky, I'm just privileged. There's a big difference," I clarify indifferently.Marissa Carmel Indifferently Sayings By Marissa Carmel: I'm not lucky, I'm just privileged. There's a big difference," I clarify indifferently.
An indiscreet man is more hurtful than an ill-natured one; for as the latter will only attack his enemies, and those he wishes ill to, the other injures indifferently both friends and foes.Joseph Addison Indifferently Sayings By Joseph Addison: An indiscreet man is more hurtful than an ill-natured one; for as the latter will
It is often seen that in households where all members are exposed to the same danger, or again in schools or troops where everyone lives the same life, disease does not strike everyone indifferently.Elie Metchnikoff Indifferently Sayings By Elie Metchnikoff: It is often seen that in households where all members are exposed to the same
Do but consider what an excellent thing sleep is ... that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together. Who complains of want? of wounds? of cares? of great men's oppressions? of captivity? whilst he sleepeth? Beggars in their beds take as much pleasure kings: can we therefore surfeit on this delicate Ambrosia? Can we drink too much of that whereof to taste too little tumbles us into a churchyard, and to use it but indifferently throws us into Bedlam? No, no, look upon Endymion, the moon's minion, who slept three score and fifteen years, and was not a hair the worse for it.Thomas Dekker Indifferently Sayings By Thomas Dekker: Do but consider what an excellent thing sleep is ... that golden chain that ties
Nevertheless, I still wait for someone. Who on earth am I waiting for, sitting here everyday? For what sort of person? Maybe what I'm waiting for isn't even a human. I dislike humans. No, I fear them. When I meet someone and indifferently exchange such greetings as 'How are you?' or 'It's become cold', greetings I don't want to make, I somehow get the unpleasant feeling that there is no such horrible liar in the whole world as I, and I wish I were dead.Osamu Dazai Indifferently Sayings By Osamu Dazai: Nevertheless, I still wait for someone. Who on earth am I waiting for, sitting here
It would be a kind of ferocity to reject indifferently all sorts of praise. One should be glad to have that which comes from good men who praise in sincerity things that are really praiseworthy.Jean De La Bruyere Indifferently Sayings By Jean De La Bruyere: It would be a kind of ferocity to reject indifferently all sorts of praise. One
Water indeed will flow indifferently to the east or west, but will it flow indifferently up or down? The tendency of our nature to good is like the tendency of water to flow downwards. There are none but have this tendency to good, just as all water flows downward.Mencius Indifferently Sayings By Mencius: Water indeed will flow indifferently to the east or west, but will it flow indifferently
Failure comes to those who indifferently allow themselves to become failure conscious.Napoleon Hill Indifferently Sayings By Napoleon Hill: Failure comes to those who indifferently allow themselves to become failure conscious.
For journalists words are simply tokens to be arranged and rearranged indifferently. But for an artist there can be only one ideal order.James Joyce Indifferently Sayings By James Joyce: For journalists words are simply tokens to be arranged and rearranged indifferently. But for an
When she was older, after ten or so, she could tell she was being useful, but as a small child she was tolerated (only just, she knew) by this whirlwind of efficiency that was her mother organizing a party. Still she insisted on arranging fruit on a dish, or disposing ashtrays around the house, while her mother reduced her pace to Alice's. At least while "helping," Alice did not feel quite so much as if she were a tiny creature on top of a great wave, frantically and hopelessly signalling to her mother, who stood indifferently on the shore, not noticing her.Doris Lessing Indifferently Sayings By Doris Lessing: When she was older, after ten or so, she could tell she was being useful,
The leaves did not stir on the trees, cicadas twanged, and the monotonous muffled sound of the sea that rose from below spoke of the peace, the eternal sleep awaiting us. So it rumbled below when there was no Yalta, no Oreanda here; so it rumbles now, and it will rumble as indifferently and as hollowly when we are no more. And in this constancy, in this complete indifference to the life and death of each of us, there lies, perhaps a pledge of our eternal salvation, of the unceasing advance of life upon earth, of unceasing movement towards perfection. Sitting beside a young woman who in the dawn seemed so lovely, Gurov, soothed and spellbound by these magical surroundings - the sea, the mountains, the clouds, the wide sky - thought how everything is really beautiful in this world when one reflects: everything except what we think or do ourselves when we forget the higher aims of life and our own human dignity.Anton Chekhov Indifferently Sayings By Anton Chekhov: The leaves did not stir on the trees, cicadas twanged, and the monotonous muffled sound
Why love the healthy, confident, proud and happy?They don't need it. They take love as their rightful due, as the duty owed to them, they accept it indifferently and arrogantly. Other people's devotion is just another gift to them, a clasp to wear in the hair, a bangle for the wrist, not the whole meaning and happiness of their lives. Love can truly help only those not favoured by fate, the distressed and disadvantaged, those who are less than confident and not beautiful, the meek-minded. When love is given to them it makes up for what life has taken away. They alone know how to love and be loved in the right way, humbly and with gratitude.Stefan Zweig Indifferently Sayings By Stefan Zweig: Why love the healthy, confident, proud and happy?They don't need it. They take love as
I've lived so little that I tend to imagine I'm not going to die; it seems improbable
that human existence can be reduced to so little; one imagines, in spite of oneself,
that sooner or later something is bound to happen. A big mistake. A life can just as
well be both empty and short. The days slip by indifferently, leaving neither trace nor
memory; and then all of a sudden they stop.
Michel Houellebecq Indifferently Sayings By Michel Houellebecq: I've lived so little that I tend to imagine I'm not going to die; it
Joshua needed to eat something before embarking upon it, and hence stood in line behind an overtattooed prick who couldn't decide between banana and pumpkin bread, while the barista in a Che Guevara hat (yet presumably fluent in Middle fucking English) looked on indifferently.Aleksandar Hemon Indifferently Sayings By Aleksandar Hemon: Joshua needed to eat something before embarking upon it, and hence stood in line behind
No doubt, the theory of evolution will continue to play the singular role in the life of our secular culture that it has always played. The theory is unique among scientific instruments in being cherished not for what it contains, but for what it lacks. There are in Darwin's scheme no biotic laws, no Bauplan as in German natural philosophy, no special creation, no elan vital, no divine guidance or transcendental forces. The theory functions simply as a description of matter in one of its modes, and living creatures are said to be something that the gods of law indifferently sanction and allow.David Berlinski Indifferently Sayings By David Berlinski: No doubt, the theory of evolution will continue to play the singular role in the
The usual," said Ron indifferently, demonstrating a rude hand gesture.J.K. Rowling Indifferently Sayings By J.K. Rowling: The usual," said Ron indifferently, demonstrating a rude hand gesture.
The chicken "understands" the dog, the dog can interpret the dove's cooing, the insect can fathom the lowing of the cow, and no matter how faraway the eagle may be, the cow can tell where it is. All audible animal messages are indifferently understood by all animals even though each one is monolingual at most. Could there be any more remarkable lesson in and example of understanding others without loss of personality? Most impenetrable to the thoughts of others are those who have no personal language. Most intolerant people hail from the land of self-ignorance.Malcolm De Chazal Indifferently Sayings By Malcolm De Chazal: The chicken "understands" the dog, the dog can interpret the dove's cooing, the insect can
rambler roses climbed indifferently about, made friends where they could, and when they found themselves unable, firmly stabbed their enemies and strangled their remains.E.F. Benson Indifferently Sayings By E.F. Benson: rambler roses climbed indifferently about, made friends where they could, and when they found themselves
Profound ignorance makes a man dogmatic. The man who knows nothing thinks he is teaching others what he has just learned himself; the man who knows a great deal can't imagine that what he is saying is not common knowledge, and speaks more indifferently.Jean De La Bruyere Indifferently Sayings By Jean De La Bruyere: Profound ignorance makes a man dogmatic. The man who knows nothing thinks he is teaching
I remember that life in that room seemed to be occurring beneath the sea, time flowed past indifferently above us, hours and days had no meaning. In the beginning our life held a joy and amazement which was newborn every day. Beneath the joy, of course, was anguish and beneath the amazement was fear; but they did not work themselves to the beginning until our high beginning was aloes on our tongues. By then anguish and fear had become the surface on which we slipped and slid, losing balance, dignity, and pride.James Baldwin Indifferently Sayings By James Baldwin: I remember that life in that room seemed to be occurring beneath the sea, time
Newspapers often speak of "personal sorrows" or of "incurable illness." These explanations are plausible. But one would have to know whether a friend of the desperate man had not that very day addressed him indifferently. He is the guilty one. For that is enough to precipitate all the rancors and all the boredom still in suspension.Albert Camus Indifferently Sayings By Albert Camus: Newspapers often speak of "personal sorrows" or of "incurable illness." These explanations are plausible. But
Not thinking about it much is not proof of healing, nor is the ability to speak about your painful event indifferently. The absence of one or presence of the other proves nothing.Amber Lynn Natusch Indifferently Sayings By Amber Lynn Natusch: Not thinking about it much is not proof of healing, nor is the ability to
It is true that water will flow indifferently to east and west, but will it flow equally well up and down? Human nature is disposed toward goodness, just as water tends to flow downwards. There is no water but flows downwards, and no man but shows his tendency to be good. Now, by striking water hard, you may splash it higher than your forehead, and by damming it, you may make it go uphill. But, is that the nature of water? It is external force that causes it to do so. Likewise, if a man is made to do what is not good, his nature is being similarly forced.Mencius Indifferently Sayings By Mencius: It is true that water will flow indifferently to east and west, but will it
No one knows if I'm dying to laugh or to cry
So my verse has
this almost imperceptible thrill
Life is sad, the world is crazy!
Not worth killing yourself for it
Not for anyone
For no love
Life goes on, indifferently!
Mario Quintana Indifferently Sayings By Mario Quintana: No one knows if I'm dying to laugh or to crySo my verse hasthis almost
If there is horror, it is for those who speak indifferently of the next war. If there is hate, it is for hateful qualities, not nations. If there is love, it is because this alone kept me alive.Claude Cahun Indifferently Sayings By Claude Cahun: If there is horror, it is for those who speak indifferently of the next war.
Very few men can speak of Nature, for instance, with any truth. They overstep her modesty, somehow or other, and confer no favor.They do not speak a good word for her. Most cry better than they speak, and you can get more nature out of them by pinching than by addressing them. The surliness with which the woodchopper speaks of his woods, handling them as indifferently as his axe, is better than the mealy-mouthed enthusiasm of the lover of nature. Better that the primrose by the river's brim be a yellow primrose, and nothing more, than that it be something less.Henry David Thoreau Indifferently Sayings By Henry David Thoreau: Very few men can speak of Nature, for instance, with any truth. They overstep her
In these random impressions, and with no desire to be other than random, I indifferently narrate my fact-less autobiography, my lifeless history. These are my Confessions, and if in them I say nothing, it's because I have nothing to say.Fernando Pessoa Indifferently Sayings By Fernando Pessoa: In these random impressions, and with no desire to be other than random, I indifferently
All things need watching, working at, caring for, and marriage is no exception. Marriage is not something to be indifferently treated or abused, or something that simply takes care of itself. Nothing neglected will remain as it was or is, or will fail to deteriorate. All things need attention, care and concern, and esp ... ecially so in this most sensitive of all relationships of life.Richard L. Evans Indifferently Sayings By Richard L. Evans: All things need watching, working at, caring for, and marriage is no exception. Marriage is
They stopped at one of these half-tank houses ... where they were greeted by a young girl, who herself seemed like no more than a child.
- We have come to enquire after Absalom ... Have you heard nothing from him?
Nothing, she said.
When will he return? he asked.
I do not know, she said.
Will he ever return? he asked, indifferently, carelessly.
I do not know she said. She said it tonelessly, hopelessly, as one who is used to waiting, to desertion. She said it as one who expects nothing from her seventy years upon the earth. No rebellion will come out of her, no demands, no fierceness. Nothing will come out of her at all save the children of men who will use her, leave her, forget her.
Alan Paton Indifferently Sayings By Alan Paton: They stopped at one of these half-tank houses ... where they were greeted by a
Not to cleave to our own virtues, nor become as a whole a victim to any of our specialties, to our "hospitality" for instance, which is the danger of dangers for highly developed and wealthy souls, who deal prodigally, almost indifferently with themselves, and push the virtue of liberality so far that it becomes a vice. One must know how TO CONSERVE ONESELF - the best test of independence.Friedrich Nietzsche Indifferently Sayings By Friedrich Nietzsche: Not to cleave to our own virtues, nor become as a whole a victim to
So many men treat their wives badly, or indifferently, or with barely contained impatience. Josh doesn't mind
no that's not right
he insists on openly showing his love and respect for me.
Lynn Morris Indifferently Sayings By Lynn Morris: So many men treat their wives badly, or indifferently, or with barely contained impatience. Josh
Set honor in one eye and death in th' other, and I will look on both indifferently. I love then name of honor more than I fear death.Julius Caesar Indifferently Sayings By Julius Caesar: Set honor in one eye and death in th' other, and I will look on
