Which form of proverb do you prefer Better late than never, or Better never than late?Lewis Carroll Late Than Never Sayings By Lewis Carroll: Which form of proverb do you prefer Better late than never, or Better never than
Please forgive me for fighting against us, Gavin. Please forgive me for not fighting for us when I knew we were supposed to be together. Forgive me for being the weak mess I am. But more than anything ... thank you for loving me. Thank you for your dimpled smile and your bottle caps. I'll never be able to look at one without thinking of you. Thank you for your stupid Yankees and your wiseass remarks. Thank you for wanting late night drives and sunset-watching with me. Thank you for wanting the good, the bad, and the in-between.Gail McHugh Late Than Never Sayings By Gail McHugh: Please forgive me for fighting against us, Gavin. Please forgive me for not fighting for
I've never enjoyed sleep as much until I got the 'Today' job. There is something about early sleep that's much better than late sleep. I feel myself going to sleep; I don't just plonk my head on the pillow. It's a sort of winding-down thing.Evan Davis Late Than Never Sayings By Evan Davis: I've never enjoyed sleep as much until I got the 'Today' job. There is something
It is a weakening and discoloring idea that rustic people knew God personally once upon a time but that it is too late for us. There never was a more holy age than ours, and never a less. There is no whit less enlightnment under the tree by your street than there was under the Buddha's bo tree.Annie Dillard Late Than Never Sayings By Annie Dillard: It is a weakening and discoloring idea that rustic people knew God personally once upon
She still hadn't caught on. Alec sighed. "Change your gown, Jamie, if that's your inclination. I prefer white. Now go and do my bidding. The hour grows late and we must be on our way."
He'd deliberately lengthened his speech, giving her time to react to his announcement. He thought he was being most considerate.
She thought he was demented.
Jamie was, at first, too stunned to do more than stare in horror at the warlord. When she finally gained her voice, she shouted, "It will be a frigid day in heaven before I marry you, milord, a frigid day indeed."
"You've just described the Highlands in winter, lass. And you will marry me."
"Never."
Exactly one hour later, Lady Jamison was wed to Alec Kincaid.
Julie Garwood Late Than Never Sayings By Julie Garwood: She still hadn't caught on. Alec sighed. "Change your gown, Jamie, if that's your inclination.
So I added in all the pains I'd learned. Cooking blunders I'd had to eat anyways. Equipment and property constantly breaking down, needing repairs and attention. Tax insanity, and rushing around trying to hack a path through a jungle of numbers. Late bills. Unpleasant jobs that gave you horribly aching feet. Odd looks from people who didn't know you, when something less than utterly normal happened. The occasional night when the loneliness ached so badly that it made you weep. The occasional gathering during with you wanted to escape to your empty apartment so badly that you were willing to go out of the bathroom window. Muscle pulls and aches you never had when you were younger, the annoyance as the price of gas kept going up to some ridiculous degree, the irritation with unruly neighbors, brainless media personalities, and various politicians who all seemed to fall on a spectrum somewhere between the extremes of "crook" and "moron."
You know.
Life.
Jim Butcher Late Than Never Sayings By Jim Butcher: So I added in all the pains I'd learned. Cooking blunders I'd had to eat
With love like that, you can't get pick about how it finds you or the details. All that matters is that it's there. Better late than never.Sarah Dessen Late Than Never Sayings By Sarah Dessen: With love like that, you can't get pick about how it finds you or the
It is remarkable that almost all speakers and writers feel it to be incumbent on them, sooner or later, to prove or acknowledge the personality of God. Some Earl of Bridgewater, thinking it better late than never, has provided for it in his will. It is a sad mistake.Henry David Thoreau Late Than Never Sayings By Henry David Thoreau: It is remarkable that almost all speakers and writers feel it to be incumbent on
Never invite to dinner: those who won't decide until the last minute; those who come more than half an hour late; those who want to bring along two or three friends; drunks; monologists; those who stay until three o'clock in the morning; those who think that conversation means having an argument; those who take a high moral tone; those who are stupid, ugly, or dull. Enforcement of these rules will enable one to eat alone every night in comfort.Mason Cooley Late Than Never Sayings By Mason Cooley: Never invite to dinner: those who won't decide until the last minute; those who come
I've discovered that I've never had much respect for money, and that has meant that money has ended up ruling me a little bit more than it should have. So I'm trying to learn - at this late stage in life! - to actually control that.Rufus Sewell Late Than Never Sayings By Rufus Sewell: I've discovered that I've never had much respect for money, and that has meant that
From World War II until 1981 the top marginal income tax rate never fell below 70 percent. Under President Dwight Eisenhower, a Republican whom no one ever accused of being a socialist, the top rate was 91 percent. Even after all deductions and credits, Americans with incomes of over $1 million (in today's dollars) paid a top marginal rate, on average, of 52 percent. As recently as the late 1980s, the top tax rate on capital gains was 35 percent. But as income and wealth have accumulated at the top, so has the political power to reduce taxes. The Bush tax cuts of 2001 and 2003, which were extended for two years in December 2010, capped top rates at 35 percent, their lowest level in more than half a century, and reduced capital gains taxes to 15 percent.Robert B. Reich Late Than Never Sayings By Robert B. Reich: From World War II until 1981 the top marginal income tax rate never fell below
It is never too late to revive your origins. It is their destiny: since they were not the first to be in on history, they will be the first to immortalize everything by reconstitution (by putting things in museums, they can match in an instant the fossilization process nature took millions of years to complete). But the conceptions Americans have of the museum is much wider than our own. To them, everything is worthy of protection, embalming, restoration. Everything can have a second birth, the eternal birth of the simulacrum.Jean Baudrillard Late Than Never Sayings By Jean Baudrillard: It is never too late to revive your origins. It is their destiny: since they
Build high-speed, electrified trains over the most-traveled corridors. It'sreally hard to power carbon-free airplanes, but electrified trains are much easier. We'll be a half century behind the Japanese, but better late than never.Denis Hayes Late Than Never Sayings By Denis Hayes: Build high-speed, electrified trains over the most-traveled corridors. It'sreally hard to power carbon-free airplanes, but
I think Francis at half form is better than anybody else by 50%, you know? I think it's just that he has never ... he has a late pick of the things that are ambitious enough for him.John Milius Late Than Never Sayings By John Milius: I think Francis at half form is better than anybody else by 50%, you know?
Shea blinked back tears, found his wrist with trembling fingers, the lightest contact, a connection between them. "We make such a perfect pair, Jacques. At least one of us should be stable, don't you think?"
He brought her hand to the warmth of his mouth. "You came for me, from thousands of miles away. You came for me."
She managed a smile. "A few years late."
Something eased in the vicinity of his heart. He knew there was no escape for either of them. He might not understand fully, but he knew he had bound them irrevocably together for all time. "Is there not a saying, 'Better late than never'?" His thumb feathered over her wrist, found her pulse.
Christine Feehan Late Than Never Sayings By Christine Feehan: Shea blinked back tears, found his wrist with trembling fingers, the lightest contact, a connection
Better late than never."-Dork DiariesRachel Renee Russell Late Than Never Sayings By Rachel Renee Russell: Better late than never."-Dork Diaries
We can't lose you," she said after a few moments of awkward as hell silence. "You have to understand that we aren't doing this because we don't care about Kat. We're doing this because we love you."
"But I love her," I said without hesitation.
Dee's eyes widened, probably since it was the first time she'd herd me say it out loud, well, about anyone other than my family. I wished I had said it more often, especially to Kat. Funny how that kind of shit always turns out in the end. While you're deep in something, you never say or do what you need to. It's always after the fact, when it's too late that you realize what you've should've said or done/
It couldn't be too late. I knew that. The fact that I was still alive was testament to that. Like Dee said, though, there were worse things than death.
Jennifer L. Armentrout Late Than Never Sayings By Jennifer L. Armentrout: We can't lose you," she said after a few moments of awkward as hell silence.
It's never too late to change your mind and be who you were meant to be. Our minds can be really powerful things, and they can come up with a million reasons as to why you can't make a change. Our minds can say that it's not logical, or it's been like this for too long, or it's too hard, or what are people going to think. But sometimes it's more important to live from your gut and from your heart than from your head... It's okay to decide that being happy is worth more than getting the law degree, or marrying your high-school sweetheart because they were nice enough, or being an actor because you think you're incapable of doing anything else. It's never too late to take charge of your destiny and make a different contribution to the world.Lisa Jakub Late Than Never Sayings By Lisa Jakub: It's never too late to change your mind and be who you were meant to
It is better to learn late than never.Publilius Syrus Late Than Never Sayings By Publilius Syrus: It is better to learn late than never.
The word criminal is more an emotional than legal term. Go to any U.S. post office and view the faces on the wanted posters. Like Dick Tracy caricatures, they stare out of the black-and-white photographs often taken in late-night booking rooms - unshaved, pig snouted, rodent eyed, hare lipped, reassuring us that human evil is always recognizable and that consequently we will never be its victim. ButJames Lee Burke Late Than Never Sayings By James Lee Burke: The word criminal is more an emotional than legal term. Go to any U.S. post
Better late than never but never late is better. They tell me time is money well we'll spend it together.Drake Late Than Never Sayings By Drake: Better late than never but never late is better. They tell me time is money
Picture time travel as nothing more than knocking your half-read book to the floor and losing your place. You pick up the book and open the pages to a scene too early or late, but never exactly where you'd been reading.Chuck Palahniuk Late Than Never Sayings By Chuck Palahniuk: Picture time travel as nothing more than knocking your half-read book to the floor and
Need brooks no delay, yet late is better than never.J.R.R. Tolkien Late Than Never Sayings By J.R.R. Tolkien: Need brooks no delay, yet late is better than never.
I never wanted to be the one to break her heart, to disappoint her, to be late for dinner or to hog the bed. I never wanted to be the person to make her cry, or turn out to be a huge let-down. She meant to much to me for any of that. While I believed I could love her better than anyone in the world, I didn't really trust myself to be ... Well, good enough.Jessica Thompson Late Than Never Sayings By Jessica Thompson: I never wanted to be the one to break her heart, to disappoint her, to
You smile upon your friend to-day, To-day his ills are over; You hearken to the lover's say, And happy is the lover. 'Tis late to hearken, late to smile, But better late than never: I shall have lived a little while Before I die for ever.A.E. Housman Late Than Never Sayings By A.E. Housman: You smile upon your friend to-day, To-day his ills are over; You hearken to the
There is no more ridiculous custom than the one that makes you express sympathy once and for all on a given day to a person whose sorrow will endure as long as his life. Such grief, felt in such a way is always present, it is never too late to talk about it, never repetitious to mention it again.Marcel Proust Late Than Never Sayings By Marcel Proust: There is no more ridiculous custom than the one that makes you express sympathy once
About two hours afterwards Gethryn discovered a suitable retort, but, coming to the conclusion that better late than never does not apply to repartees, refrained from speaking it.P.G. Wodehouse Late Than Never Sayings By P.G. Wodehouse: About two hours afterwards Gethryn discovered a suitable retort, but, coming to the conclusion that
Between too early and too late, there is never more than a moment.Franz Werfel Late Than Never Sayings By Franz Werfel: Between too early and too late, there is never more than a moment.
Greg has never been on time in his life," his mother said. "Ever he was a boy, Greg has always operated on African time." In Africa, many people have a more relaxed attitude towards time than is common in the United States. What an African would consider on time, an American would probably think of as late.Bob Burg John David Mann Late Than Never Sayings By Bob Burg John David Mann: Greg has never been on time in his life," his mother said. "Ever he was
Test of the poet is knowledge of love,
For Eros is older than Saturn or Jove;
Never was poet, of late or of yore,
Who was not tremulous with love-lore.
Ralph Waldo Emerson Late Than Never Sayings By Ralph Waldo Emerson: Test of the poet is knowledge of love,For Eros is older than Saturn or Jove;Never
You can't ever take your love for granted. It's like a flower than needs sun, water, and food to survive. Without them, it cannot bloom. And besides, it's never too late to fall in love all over again, even for us old folks.Jacob Z. Flores Late Than Never Sayings By Jacob Z. Flores: You can't ever take your love for granted. It's like a flower than needs sun,
My name is Phoebe Meadows." I covered my nakedness again with my arms. "I know it's a little late for this, since I'm currently lying butt naked in your arms, and you've already saved my life three times, but now is better than never. You can call me Phoebe if you like.Amanda Carlson Late Than Never Sayings By Amanda Carlson: My name is Phoebe Meadows." I covered my nakedness again with my arms. "I know
Whatever it was her father wanted, Emma did not know how to provide it. She felt confused by what he did, and imagined the problem was a lack in her, rather than him. And there was something else:
My dad was always late when we had our meetings - i i never wanted to go in the first place, and then i'd be sitting and waiting, feeling so ugly and worthless because i wasn't worth being on time for . . .
One time when my father was late he said he fell asleep . . . I wouldn't let myself cry in front of him.
Carol Lee Late Than Never Sayings By Carol Lee: Whatever it was her father wanted, Emma did not know how to provide it. She
But I'd rather look back and regret something I did when I was young and crazy, than look back and regret something I never had the courage to do, and realize it's too late.Cherrie Lynn Late Than Never Sayings By Cherrie Lynn: But I'd rather look back and regret something I did when I was young and
The plan to carve up British India was never approved of or accepted by Gandhi ... who realised too late that his closest comrades and disciples were more interested in power than principle, and that his own vision had long been clouded by the illusion that the struggle he led for India's freedom was a nonviolent one.Stanley Wolpert Late Than Never Sayings By Stanley Wolpert: The plan to carve up British India was never approved of or accepted by Gandhi
Never be late. When you're late, what you're saying is that your time is more important than the other person's time. That's pretty egotistical.Alice Cooper Late Than Never Sayings By Alice Cooper: Never be late. When you're late, what you're saying is that your time is more
We are late, Alexandra," said the dowager duchess as she stood in Alex's drawing room idly examining a magnificent fourteenth-century sculpture reposing on a satinwood table. "And I don't mind telling you, now that the time is upon us, I have a worse feeling about this now than I did earlier. And my instincts are never wrong.Judith McNaught Late Than Never Sayings By Judith McNaught: We are late, Alexandra," said the dowager duchess as she stood in Alex's drawing room
A couple of days after the last time I saw him, I got a typically well-written postcard. He said that after he kissed me goodbye at LAX he was driving away and turned on the radio. Elvis was singing "It's Now or Never." In my personal religion, a faith cobbled together out of pop songs and books and movies, there is nothing closer to a sign from God than Elvis Presley telling you "tomorrow will be too late" at precisely the moment you drop off a girl you're not sure you want to drop off. Sitting on the stairs to my apartment, I read that card and wept. It said he heard the song and thought about running after me. But he didn't. And just as well
those mixed-faith marriages hardly ever work. An Elvis song coming out of the radio wasn't a sign from God to him, it was just another one of those corny pop tunes he could live without.
Sarah Vowell Late Than Never Sayings By Sarah Vowell: A couple of days after the last time I saw him, I got a typically
This revolution was a legend in the making. The kind of tale that sprawled out long before me and far beyond my reach. The sort of epic that was told over and over to explain how the world was never the same after this handful of people lived and fought and won or died trying. And after it happened, the story seemed somehow inevitable. Like the world was waiting to be changed, needing to be saved, and the players in the tale were all plucked out of their lives and moved into places exactly where they needed to be, like pieces on a board, just to make this story come true. But it was wilder and more terrifying and intoxicating, and more uncertain, than I'd ever thought. And I could be part of it. If I wanted to. It was getting way too late to rip myself out of this story now, or to rip it out of me. "WhereAlwyn Hamilton Late Than Never Sayings By Alwyn Hamilton: This revolution was a legend in the making. The kind of tale that sprawled out
She looked at him and he read in her eyes a disappointment that he should have stooped to the dead relative excuse. Yet he was as entitled as the next man to use it. People did it all the time; it was understood that there was a defined window of availability beginning a decent few days after a funeral and continuing for no more than a couple of months. Of course, some people took dreadful advantage and a year later were still hauling around their dead relatives on their backs, showing them off to explain late tax payments and missed dentist appointments: something he would never do.Helen Simonson Late Than Never Sayings By Helen Simonson: She looked at him and he read in her eyes a disappointment that he should
Potius sero quam nunquam.

Livy Late Than Never Sayings By Livy: Potius sero quam nunquam.Better late than never.
Better once than never, for never too late.William Shakespeare Late Than Never Sayings By William Shakespeare: Better once than never, for never too late.
There is no greater thing than to be oneself, and it is never too late to do so.James Rozoff Late Than Never Sayings By James Rozoff: There is no greater thing than to be oneself, and it is never too late
I lend everyone my ear,
But nobody my heart,
And I sure would like to change that,
But I don't know where to start,
I smile more to myself,
Than the world will ever see,
Because the only time my smile is real,
Is in my own company,
People don't know how I feel,
They never even ask,
It seems I have fooled them all,
They can't see past my mask,
If they were with me late at night,
When the world was still asleep,
Maybe I'd let them sort,
Through the secrets that I keep,
But when I wake at 2am,
Nobody is ever there,
And I learnt that why I hide my heart,
Is because no-one really cares.
Erin Hanson Late Than Never Sayings By Erin Hanson: I lend everyone my ear,But nobody my heart,And I sure would like to change that,But
Better never than late.George Bernard Shaw Late Than Never Sayings By George Bernard Shaw: Better never than late.

I know of no other practise which will make one more attractive in conversation than to be well-read in a variety of subjects. There is a great potential within each of us to go on learning. Regardless of our age, unless there be serious illness, we can read, study, drink in the writings of wonderful men and women. It is never too late to learn.Gordon B. Hinckley Late Than Never Sayings By Gordon B. Hinckley: I know of no other practise which will make one more attractive in conversation than
I bless God for this retirement: I never was more thankful for any thing than I have been of late for the necessity I am under of self-denial in many respects.David Brainerd Late Than Never Sayings By David Brainerd: I bless God for this retirement: I never was more thankful for any thing than
Some things came to you late, but late was better than never.Jeff VanderMeer Late Than Never Sayings By Jeff VanderMeer: Some things came to you late, but late was better than never.
Resistance to criminal rashness comes better late than never.Livy Late Than Never Sayings By Livy: Resistance to criminal rashness comes better late than never.
Between 1870 and 1905 Mark Twain (Samuel L. Clemens) tried repeatedly, and at long intervals, to write (or dictate) his autobiography, always shelving the manuscript before he had made much progress. By 1905 he had accumulated some thirty or forty of these false starts - manuscripts that were essentially experiments, drafts of episodes and chapters; many of these have survived in the Mark Twain Papers and two other libraries. To some of these manuscripts he went so far as to assign chapter numbers that placed them early or late in a narrative which he never filled in, let alone completed. None dealt with more than brief snatches of his life story.Mark Twain Late Than Never Sayings By Mark Twain: Between 1870 and 1905 Mark Twain (Samuel L. Clemens) tried repeatedly, and at long intervals,
I'm never happier than when I'm not working. The strip is a job - that's why I take money for it. It's a job I'm passionate about, but it's a job I totally leave in the studio when I walk out of here, unless I'm late and I have to work at home. I never think of the strip unless I'm compelled to.Garry Trudeau Late Than Never Sayings By Garry Trudeau: I'm never happier than when I'm not working. The strip is a job - that's
... but it is better to learn wisdom late than never to learn it at all.Arthur Conan Doyle Late Than Never Sayings By Arthur Conan Doyle: ... but it is better to learn wisdom late than never to learn it at
But I learned more than you know from Owen Paris. I learned that trying to live up to imagined expectations is a waste of energy. I learned that nothing can replace the time I spend with my daughter every day. I learned much too late that his way of loving me was just his way. I learned too late that he loved me at all. He chose his career over his children. He left us with you, and you are a great mom. But every day he wasn't there was another day I spent wondering what I had done wrong and why he didn't care enough to be with me. "My children are never going to wonder that. I'm going to be there for every birthday, every school assembly, every science fair, every bad grade, every fight on the playground, every good-night kiss, every messy, hard, frustrating, perfect moment of it.Kirsten Beyer Late Than Never Sayings By Kirsten Beyer: But I learned more than you know from Owen Paris. I learned that trying to
Each time they meet, they have more to discuss, and so they talk, quietly revealing themselves with and without language, their eyes moving like their hands over the plates of food between them....As he walks away from these visits, his heart almost bursts from happiness and regret. He would give anything to have made different choices. He is making those choices now, but he is forty-six years old. Sometimes he is haunted by the thought that it's all come too late. Other times he thinks, No, what is happening now could never have happened before; I was too young and too fearful. The paradox fascinates him--as the old loyalties desiccate and the danger intensifies, he feels lighter and younger than he has in years.Karen Connelly Late Than Never Sayings By Karen Connelly: Each time they meet, they have more to discuss, and so they talk, quietly revealing
One day she would build her own church, and God would see her, too. They continued traveling along the Arges River, which sometimes was narrow and violently churning, sometimes as wide and smooth as glass. It snaked through the land until reaching the mountains. Everything was a green so deep it was nearly black. Dark gray stones and boulders jutted out of the steeply rising slopes, and beneath them the Arges wandered. It was cooler here than in Tirgoviste, a chill that never quite burned away clinging to the rocks and moss. The looming mountains were so steep that the sun shone directly on the traveling company for only a few hours each day before shadows reclaimed the passes. It smelled of pine and wood and rot - but even the rot smelled rich and healthful, unlike the hidden rot of Tirgoviste. LateKiersten White Late Than Never Sayings By Kiersten White: One day she would build her own church, and God would see her, too. They
I thought that if the right time gets missed, if one has refused or been refused something for too long, it's too late, even if it is finally tackled with energy and received with joy. Or is there no such thing as "too late"? Is there only "late," and is "late" always better than "never"? I don't know.Bernhard Schlink Late Than Never Sayings By Bernhard Schlink: I thought that if the right time gets missed, if one has refused or been
I lied to you,' she said, hanging her head in shame, 'more than once. In fact, I swore that my lies were truth. I can't understand how it could have happened. It just came out of my mouth and by the time I realised what I'd done, it was too late.
'It's never too late to realise that you were mistaken, Sophiel.
A.O. Esther Late Than Never Sayings By A.O. Esther: I lied to you,' she said, hanging her head in shame, 'more than once. In
It is much better to tell the truth than to compromise truth and have someone believe a lie. It is far better they hear the truth now than that they believe they can keep other idols in their life - and then one day, when it's too late, shockingly hear the Master say, "Depart; I never knew you, you who were deceived!John Bevere Late Than Never Sayings By John Bevere: It is much better to tell the truth than to compromise truth and have someone
You know," said Sydney, after a sip. "I kind of can taste some citrus in this. Just barely. Like a hint of orange. And it's sweeter than I thought, but that'd make sense if the guy said it was late harvest varietal. Grapes retain more sugar the longer they stay on the vine."
"I knew it," I said triumphantly. "I knew this was exactly what would happen if I ever got you to drink."
She titled her head, puzzled. "What?"
"Never mind.
Richelle Mead Late Than Never Sayings By Richelle Mead: You know," said Sydney, after a sip. "I kind of can taste some citrus in
Wow, you're never allowed to sleep late again. You're crankier than a fat guy in stilettos.Maggie Stiefvater Late Than Never Sayings By Maggie Stiefvater: Wow, you're never allowed to sleep late again. You're crankier than a fat guy in
I was never happier than on the nights we stayed home, lying on the living room rug. We talked about classes and poetry and politics and sex. Neither of us were in love with the Iowa Writers' Workshop, but it didn't really matter because we had no place else to go. What we had was the little home we made together, our life in the ugly green duplex. We lived next door to a single mother named Nancy Tate who was generous in all matters. She would drive us to the grocery store and give us menthol cigarettes and come over late at night after her son was asleep to sit in our kitchen and drink wine and talk about Hegel and Marx. Iowa City in the eighties was never going to be Paris in the twenties, but we gave it our best shot.Ann Patchett Late Than Never Sayings By Ann Patchett: I was never happier than on the nights we stayed home, lying on the living
Most families have increased the speed of their lives and the number of their activities gradually--even unconsciously--over time. They realize that there are costs to a consistently fast-paced, hectic schedule, but they've adjusted. And looking around, there always seems to be another family that does everything you do, and more, managing to squeeze in skiing, or Space Camp, or French horn lessons on top of everything else. How do they do it?
They do it by never asking 'Why?' Why do our kids need to be busy all of the time? Why does our son, age twelve, need to explore the possibility of space travel? Why do we feel we must offer everything? Why must it all happen now? Why does tomorrow always seem a bit late? Why would we rather squeeze more things into our schedules than to see what happens over time? What happens when we stop, when we have free time?
Kim John Payne Late Than Never Sayings By Kim John Payne: Most families have increased the speed of their lives and the number of their activities
Even if you think the tentacles of security have already wrapped themselves around you and you can't move because of your obligations, it's never too late-there are always unlimited ways to follow your dreams, and it is much easier than you think.Rhonda Byrne Late Than Never Sayings By Rhonda Byrne: Even if you think the tentacles of security have already wrapped themselves around you and
Like many other touchstones of twenty-first-century pop culture, 'The Sopranos' was hatched in the late Nineties, predicting a future that never arrived. It was designed for a decade that would be just like the Nineties, except more so, in an America that enjoyed seeing itself as smarter and braver and freer than ever before.Rob Sheffield Late Than Never Sayings By Rob Sheffield: Like many other touchstones of twenty-first-century pop culture, 'The Sopranos' was hatched in the late
Better late than never.Spencer Johnson Late Than Never Sayings By Spencer Johnson: Better late than never.
It was time for me to go that Thursday night. We'd just watched Citizen Kane--a throwback to my Cinema 190 class at USC--and it was late. And though a soft, cozy bed in one of the guest rooms sounded much more appealing than driving all the way home, I'd never really wanted to get into the habit of sleeping over at Marlboro Man's house. It was the Pretend-I'm-a-Proper-Country-Club-Girl in me, mixed with a healthy dose of fear that Marlboro Man's mother or grandmother would drop by early in the morning to bring Marlboro Man some warm muffins or some such thing and see my car parked in the driveway. Or even worse, come inside the house, and then I'd have to wrestle with whether or not to volunteer that "I slept in a guest room! I slept in a guest room!", which only would have made me look more guilty. Who needs that? I'd told myself, and vowed never to put myself in that predicament.Ree Drummond Late Than Never Sayings By Ree Drummond: It was time for me to go that Thursday night. We'd just watched Citizen Kane--a
You know your problem, Quentin? You keep expecting people not to be themselves. I mean, I could hate you for being massively unpunctual and for never being interested in anything other than Margo Roth Spiegelman, and for, like, never asking me about how it's going with my girlfriend - but I don't give a shit, man, because you're you. My parents have a shit ton of black Santas, but that's okay. They're them. I'm too obsessed with a reference website to answer my phone sometimes when my friends call, or my girlfriend. That's okay, too. That's me. You like me anyway. And I like you. You're funny, and you're smart, and you may show up late, but you always show up eventually.John Green Late Than Never Sayings By John Green: You know your problem, Quentin? You keep expecting people not to be themselves. I mean,
If only I had met Molly sooner, when it was still possible to choose one road rather than another! Before that bitch Musyne and that little turd Lola crimped my enthusiasm! But it was too late to start being young again. I didn't believe in it any more! We grow old so quickly and, what's more, irremediably. You can tell by the way you start loving your misery in spite of yourself. Nature is stronger than we are, no two ways about it. She tries us in one particular mould, and we're never able to throw it off. I had started out as the restless type. Little by little, without realizing it, you begin to take your role and fate seriously, and, before you know it, it's too late to change. You're a hundred per cent restless, and it's set that way for good.Louis-Ferdinand Celine Late Than Never Sayings By Louis-Ferdinand Celine: If only I had met Molly sooner, when it was still possible to choose one
It's never too late, for with a purpose, a worthy goal and a motivation to reach those upper layers on the pyramid, a person can travel further in a few years than he might otherwise travel in a lifetime.Earl Nightingale Late Than Never Sayings By Earl Nightingale: It's never too late, for with a purpose, a worthy goal and a motivation to
With gloomy face he picked it up And took it to his Mother, Though even he could not suppose That she could make another; For those who perished on the line He did not seem to care, His engine being more to him Than all the people there. And now you see the reason why Our Peter has been ill: He soothes his soul with pigeon-pie His gnawing grief to kill. He wraps himself in blankets warm And sleeps in bed till late, Determined thus to overcome His miserable fate. And if his eyes are rather red, His cold must just excuse it: Offer him pie; you may be sure He never will refuse it.E. Nesbit Late Than Never Sayings By E. Nesbit: With gloomy face he picked it up And took it to his Mother, Though even
A sad fact, of course, about adult life is that you see the very things you'll never adapt to coming toward you on the horizon. You see them as the problems they are, you worry like hell about them, you make provisions, take precautions, fashion adjustments; you tell yourself you'll have to change your way of doing things. Only you don't. You can't. Somehow it's already too late. And maybe it's even worse than that: maybe the thing you see coming from far away is not the real thing, the thing that scares you, but its aftermath. And what you've feared will happen has already taken place. This is similar in spirit to the realization that all the great new advances of medical science will have no benefit for us at all, thought we cheer them on, hope a vaccine might be ready in time, think things could still get better. Only it's too late there too. And in that very way our life gets over before we know it. We miss it. And like the poet said: The ways we miss our lives are life.Richard Ford Late Than Never Sayings By Richard Ford: A sad fact, of course, about adult life is that you see the very things
She loved Gilbert - had always loved him! She knew that now. She knew that she could no more cast him out of her life without agony than she could have cut off her right hand and cast it from her. And the knowledge had come too late - too late even for the bitter solace of being with him at the last. If she had not been so blind - so foolish - she would have had the right to go to him now. But he would never know that she loved him - he would go away from this life thinking that she did not care.L.M. Montgomery Late Than Never Sayings By L.M. Montgomery: She loved Gilbert - had always loved him! She knew that now. She knew that
Wasn't that the way life always worked? To learn a hard truth too late- was that better than never learnig it at all? Possible not.

I'm convinced of this: Good done anywhere is good done everywhere. For a change, start by speaking to people rather than walking by them like they're stones that don't matter. As long as you're breathing, it's never too late to do some good.Maya Angelou Late Than Never Sayings By Maya Angelou: I'm convinced of this: Good done anywhere is good done everywhere.

Few things in nature can compare to the long, mournful wail of a loon echoing across water and through the forest. It's an evocative sound that will stick with you for the rest of your life and make you nostalgic for things that never even happened to you. Eerie, yet beautiful, the sound will conjure up images of solitude near mountain lakes and ponds, shrouded in fog during the early morning or late dusk, surrounded by the silhouettes of pine trees. It's a sound that relaxes and submerges you into the tranquility of nature. I don't think there is another sound in the world that reminds me of the wilderness more so than the wail of a loon.Kyle Rohrig Late Than Never Sayings By Kyle Rohrig: Few things in nature can compare to the long, mournful wail of a loon echoing
Once I entered the house late at night and overheard Mark and my mom having sex by the fireplace. She was moaning like she was flying on a magic carpet. I almost puked into the kitchen sink. I would give anything for her to dump him. Jade's mom says it will never happen because women over 45 have a better chance of getting blown up by a terrorist than finding a man. Haha! If I ever get that desperate, I will buy a giant vibrator and never leave the house.Allison Burnett Late Than Never Sayings By Allison Burnett: Once I entered the house late at night and overheard Mark and my mom having
I cannot detain Love, holding him captive so that he may never break my heart. No more than I can stick Guilt in a pot so that I may boil him until all of my sins are vaporized, rising alongside the screaming steam. I cannot hold Sorrow in my arms and rock him to a fit and endless sleep. Nor can I search for Joy and effortlessly find him beneath the pink-dusted sky of late afternoon, where he waits for me with open arms.Kelseyleigh Reber Late Than Never Sayings By Kelseyleigh Reber: I cannot detain Love, holding him captive so that he may never break my heart.
All this is flashy rhetoric about loving you.
I never had a selfless thought since I was born.
I am mercenary and self-seeking through and through:
I want God, you, all friends, merely to serve my turn.
Peace, re-assurance, pleasure, are the goals I seek,
I cannot crawl one inch outside my proper skin:
I talk of love
a scholar's parrot may talk Greek
But, self-imprisoned, always end where I begin.
Only that now you have taught me (but how late) my lack.
I see the chasm. And everything you are was making
My heart into a bridge by which I might get back
From exile, and grow man. And now the bridge is breaking.
For this I bless you as the ruin falls. The pains
You give me are more precious than all other gains.

There's a certain kind of rain that falls only in comics, a thick, persistent drizzle, much heavier than normal water, that bounces off whatever it hits, dripping from fedoras, running slowly down windowpanes and reflecting the doom in bad men's hearts. It's called an "eisnershpritz," and it's named after the late Will Eisner, one of the preeminent stylists of twentieth-century comics, who never drew a foreboding scene that couldn't be made a little more foreboding with a nice big downpour.Douglas Wolk Late Than Never Sayings By Douglas Wolk: There's a certain kind of rain that falls only in comics, a thick, persistent drizzle,
She hadn't known the tears were coming until it was too late to stop them.

She cried for the girl who had never belonged. A girl who tried so hard, harder than anyone else, and still never had anything to show for it. A girl who had been certain that Evret loved her and only her, and now she couldn't even remember what that certainty felt like.

Simple was never that simple. Still, the self-questioning did take some time to reach him. And if there's anything worse than self-questioning coming too early in life, it's self-questioning coming too late.Philip Roth Late Than Never Sayings By Philip Roth: Simple was never that simple. Still, the self-questioning did take some time to reach him.
Sexual intercourse began
In nineteen sixty-three
(which was rather late for me) -
Between the end of the Chatterley ban
And the Beatles' first LP.
Up to then there'd only been
A sort of bargaining,
A wrangle for the ring,
A shame that started at sixteen
And spread to everything.
Then all at once the quarrel sank:
Everyone felt the same,
And every life became
A brilliant breaking of the bank,
A quite unlosable game.
So life was never better than
In nineteen sixty-three
(Though just too late for me) -
Between the end of the Chatterley ban
And the Beatles' first LP.

Yet they sense that something is wrong. They can't quite put their finger on the problem. As time passes, they grow more and more dependent on each other; they are getting older; any opportunities to make a new life are vanishing fast. They try to keep busy doing reading or embroidery, watching television, seeing friends, but there is always the conversation over supper or after supper. He is easily irritated, she is more silent than usual. They can see that they are growing further and further apart, but cannot understand why. They reach the conclusion that this is what marriage is like, but won't talk to their friends about it; they are the image of the happy couple who support each other and share the same interests. She takes a lover, so does he, but it's never anything serious, of course. What is important, necessary, essential, is to act as if nothing is happening, because it's too late to change.Paulo Coelho Late Than Never Sayings By Paulo Coelho: Yet they sense that something is wrong.

At any point in time you can always find something more pressing to do than that one vital but not immediately necessary task, and it's only once it's too late that you look back on your decisions and your mistake becomes painfully obvious. The trick is to substitute thinking 'do I do this now or later?' with 'do I do this now or never?', because all too often that's the choice you actually end up making.Anonymous Late Than Never Sayings By Anonymous: At any point in time you can always find something more pressing to do than
I'm elated. I guess it's better late than never. Welcome to the 21st century. It's fantastic. I love Dior, and Rihanna is very much one of my style icons. I'm happy they got there in the end.

From Unlikely Destinations: The Lonely Planet Story, re: the travel book boom of the 1970s
Surprisingly, none of the new developments in travel publishing came from established companies. The changes in the air seemed to completely bypass them and when they did wake up to the upsurge in growth it was too late -- they'd been overtaken. Much the same happened a decade later with computer books. Just as the travel book explosion was led by travelers who got into publishing rather than publishers getting into travel, so the computer book explosion was led by computer geeks getting into publishing. The regular publishers never saw it coming.

A normal woman, indeed, no more believes in democracy in the nation than she believes in democracy at her own fireside; she knows that there must be a class to order and a class to obey, and that the two can never coalesce. Nor is she, susceptible to the stock sentimentalities upon which the whole democratic process is based. This was shown very dramatically in them United States at the national election of 1920, in which the late Woodrow Wilson was brought down to colossal and ignominious defeat - The first general election in which all American women could vote. All the sentimentality of the situation was on the side of Wilson, and yet fully three-fourths of the newly-enfranchised women voters voted against him.H.L. Mencken Late Than Never Sayings By H.L.

On Becoming Who You Are Wherever you've been, and whatever you've done so far, your entire life was building up to this moment. Now is the time to burst forth into your greatness, a greatness you could never have achieved without going through exactly the things you've gone through. Everything you've experienced was grist for the mill by which you have become who you are. As low as you might have descended, in God there are no limits to how high you can go now. It is not too late. You are not too damaged. In fact, you are better than you know.Marianne Williamson Late Than Never Sayings By Marianne Williamson: On Becoming Who You Are Wherever you've been, and whatever you've done so far, your
The difference between a good administrator and a bad one is about five heartbeats. Good administrators make immediate choices. [ ... ] They usually can be made to work. A bad administrator, on the other hand, hesitates, diddles around, asks for committees, for research and reports. Eventually, he acts in ways which create serious problems. [ ... ] A bad administrator is more concerned with reports than with decisions. He wants the hard record which he can display as an excuse for his errors. [ ... ] Oh, they depend on verbal orders. They never lie about what they've done if their verbal orders cause problems, and they surround themselves with people able to act wisely on the basis of verbal orders. Often, the most important piece of information is that something has gone wrong. Bad administrators hide their mistakes until it's too late to make corrections.Frank Herbert Late Than Never Sayings By Frank Herbert: The difference between a good administrator and a bad one is about five heartbeats.
