Past the projects, the land opened up and water came into view. The breeze carried rain and salt. Jetties and barrier walls supported the shore, which was stacked with crumbling brick warehouses. Out in the channel, the Statue of Liberty stood alone on her little island, her corroding flame held high in the air as the sun set over the industrial shoreline and skyways of New Jersey. Across the narrows, the bluffs of Staten Island wavered in the smoky light of dusk that turned the Verrazano into bronze. Faint light burnished water into busy with freighters and tug boats. A lone sail boat flitted in the distance. On the near shore, on a slip of water between a jetty and the land, a blood red barge bobbed on the tide.Andrew Cotto Narrows Sayings By Andrew Cotto: Past the projects, the land opened up and water came into view. The breeze carried
A community narrows down and grows dreadful ignorant when it is shut up to its own affairs, and gets no knowledge of the outside world except from a cheap, unprincipled paper.Sarah Orne Jewett Narrows Sayings By Sarah Orne Jewett: A community narrows down and grows dreadful ignorant when it is shut up to its
The web promises to make our world bigger. But as it works now, it also narrows our exposure to ideas. We can end up in a bubble in which we hear only the ideas we already know. Or already like.Sherry Turkle Narrows Sayings By Sherry Turkle: The web promises to make our world bigger. But as it works now, it also
Psychology narrows the cause for personal unhappiness down to the person himself, and then he is stuck with himself. But we know that the universal and general cause for personal badness, guilt, and inferiority is the natural world and the person's relationship to it as a symbolic animal who must find a secure place in it. All the analysis in the world doesn't allow the person to find out who he is and why he is here on earth, why he has to die, and how he can make his life a triumph. It is when psychology pretends to do this, when it offers itself as a full explanation of human unhappiness, that it becomes a fraud that makes the situation of modern man on impasse from which he cannot escape.Ernest Becker Narrows Sayings By Ernest Becker: Psychology narrows the cause for personal unhappiness down to the person himself, and then he
When life attains a crisis, man's focus narrows. [ ... ] The world becomes a stage of immediate concern, swept free of illusion.Jim Thompson Narrows Sayings By Jim Thompson: When life attains a crisis, man's focus narrows. [ ... ] The world becomes a
I find that when I get casual with my relationship with divinity and when it seems no divine ear is listening and no divine voice is speaking, that I am far, far away. If I immerse myself in the scriptures, the distance narrows and the spirituality returns. I find myself loving more intimately those I should love with all my heart, mind, and strength.Spencer W. Kimball Narrows Sayings By Spencer W. Kimball: I find that when I get casual with my relationship with divinity and when it
I thought you said she couldn't touch anyone." James is staring at me now, suspicious.
"She can't."
"Except for you?"
"Right. Except for me."
And Warner.
"She can't touch anyone except for you."
And Warner.
"Right."
"That seems awfully convenient." James narrows his eyes.
Tahereh Mafi Narrows Sayings By Tahereh Mafi: I thought you said she couldn't touch anyone." James is staring at me now, suspicious."She
The study of science, dissociated from that of philosophy and literature, narrows the mind and weakens the power to love and follow the noblest ideals: for the truths which science ignores and must ignore are precisely those which have the deepest bearing on life and conduct.John Lancaster Spalding Narrows Sayings By John Lancaster Spalding: The study of science, dissociated from that of philosophy and literature, narrows the mind and
A common misconception of education comes when the definition of education narrows to the intellectual. The child is compartmentalized. He is not seen as a whole person, fully-integrated with physical, emotional, spiritual and intellectual capacities. Thus, if an educational program attempts to address the child's intellect while ignoring his spiritual and emotional development, the approach is sadly ignoring the true reality of the child. Likewise, those who separate the spiritual and emotional part of a child from the intellectual make a big mistake. You cannot delegate only the intellectual training of your child to professionals and retain just the spiritual and emotional for yourself. Whatever class is taught, the whole child is affected.Kevin Swanson Narrows Sayings By Kevin Swanson: A common misconception of education comes when the definition of education narrows to the intellectual.
Exactness and neatness in moderation is a virtue, but carried to extremes narrows the mind.Francois Fenelon Narrows Sayings By Francois Fenelon: Exactness and neatness in moderation is a virtue, but carried to extremes narrows the mind.
What does this Daimon look like? (Xedrix)
He's tall and blond. (Kyle)
Well, that narrows it down to every Daimon here except Stryker. What would that be? Several thousand of them? Could you be a bit more specific and if you tell me he was dressed in black, I'll kill you myself and spare me the agony of dying. (Xedrix)
Sherrilyn Kenyon Narrows Sayings By Sherrilyn Kenyon: What does this Daimon look like? (Xedrix)He's tall and blond. (Kyle)Well, that narrows it down
It is said that the future narrows once we cease to believe it is eternal...Catherine Millet Narrows Sayings By Catherine Millet: It is said that the future narrows once we cease to believe it is eternal...
That constant pacing to and fro, that never-ending restlessness, that incessant tread of feet wearing the rough stones smooth and glossy - is it not a wonder how the dwellers in narrows ways can bear to hear it! Think of a sick man in such a place as Saint Martin's Court, listening to the footsteps, and in the midst of pain and weariness obliged, despite himself (as though it were a task he must perform) to detect the child's step from the man's, the slipshod beggar from the booted exquisite, the lounging from the busy, the dull heel of the sauntering outcast from the quick tread of an expectant pleasure-seeker - think of the hum and noise always being present to his sense, and of the stream of life that will not stop, pouring on, on, on, through all his restless dreams, as if he were condemned to lie, dead but conscious, in a noisy churchyard, and had no hope of rest for centuries to come.Charles Dickens Narrows Sayings By Charles Dickens: That constant pacing to and fro, that never-ending restlessness, that incessant tread of feet wearing
Are you sure you want to do this?" She holds her palm against my chest. "I don't want to take advantage."
I throw back my head and laugh. "Babe. There isn't a scenario I can ever imagine where that would happen. Feel free to take advantage whenever you get the urge." I wink, and she narrows her eyes suspiciously. "Sweetheart." I lean in, planting a hungry kiss on her lips. "I need to lose myself in you." I run circles on her stomach with the tip of my finger, mentally fist-pumping the air when she trembles underneath my touch. "This is the best thing you can do to help me right now."
"Well." She grins seductively, reaching down to grab me. "When you put it like that, I can hardly refuse, now can I?
Siobhan Davis Narrows Sayings By Siobhan Davis: Are you sure you want to do this?" She holds her palm against my chest.
She smiles, lightning quick, then squeezes my hand harder, holding on like she's afraid someone will come and pull us apart.
"You'll face it all with me?" The world narrows, the sounds of the oncoming search party fading, the lights blurring around us until it's just her and me, our breath condensing and mingling in the cold air. She's stolen my voice, this girl in my arms, and for a moment I can't answer. I have to gather my wits, try to remember how to breathe.
"Always." Her smile is like the sun coming out.
"Then you ought to kiss me while you can, Major Merendsen. It may be a while before your next opportunity.
Amie Kaufman Narrows Sayings By Amie Kaufman: She smiles, lightning quick, then squeezes my hand harder, holding on like she's afraid someone
It's ahead of us. All I can tell you is, not even courage will help." "Are you reading Alma Mahler again?" "No." Her voice was even and knowing. The underground river. The ceiling lowers, grows wet, the water rushes into darkness. The air becomes damp and icy, the passage narrows. Light is lost here, sound; the current begins to flow beneath great, impassable slabs.James Salter Narrows Sayings By James Salter: It's ahead of us. All I can tell you is, not even courage will help."
He narrows his eyes, and I can see the cogs turning in his mind. Then he snaps entirely. "I told you, I told you not to get in over your head!" He slams a fist down on the table, looking angrier than I've ever seen him before. "And now," he breathes, staring at me with so much sorrow it makes my heart hurt, "now I must watch you drown?Victoria Aveyard Narrows Sayings By Victoria Aveyard: He narrows his eyes, and I can see the cogs turning in his mind. Then
When power narrows the areas of a man's concerns, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existenceJ.F. Kennedy Narrows Sayings By J.F. Kennedy: When power narrows the areas of a man's concerns, poetry reminds him of the richness
Enzo narrows his eyes. He moves as if to grab Raffaele's wrist with his burning hands, to burn him alive from the inside out.
"Don't," Raffaele whispers to Enzo. And even though Enzo's eyes stay black, Raffaele does not flinch away. He remains where he is, surrounded by fire.
Enzo's eyes flicker. He blinks at Raffaele, confused, and then lowers his face toward him. Raffaele leans forward, closes his eyes, and rests his head against Enzo's shoulder. I do not need to touch them to know that Raffaele's energy is coursing through Enzo now, healing and soothing, calming, pushing against the fury of his own.
Marie Lu Narrows Sayings By Marie Lu: Enzo narrows his eyes. He moves as if to grab Raffaele's wrist with his burning
Poetry that tames language into tight structures and yet manages to move us comes off as a feat, paralleling ballet or athletic talent in harnessing craft to beauty. When poetry is based on a less rigorous, more impressionistic definition of craft, its appeal depends more on whether one happens to be individually constituted to "get it" for various reasons. The audience narrows: poetry becomes more like tai chi than baseball.John McWhorter Narrows Sayings By John McWhorter: Poetry that tames language into tight structures and yet manages to move us comes off
Mother says that people like me just become intellectual old maids,' I told him.
'I don't see why,' he protested.
'Oh, well, it's probably true!' I said, rather sharply, for misery had as usual made me irritable. 'After the War there'll be no one for me to marry.'
'Not even me?' he asked very softly.
'How do I know I shall want to marry you when that time comes?'
'You know you wouldn't be happy unless you married an odd sort of person.'
'That rather narrows the field of choice, doesn't it?'
'Well
do you need it to be so very wide?
Vera Brittain Narrows Sayings By Vera Brittain: Mother says that people like me just become intellectual old maids,' I told him.'I don't
Being deeply knowledgeable on one subject narrows one's focus and increases confidence, but it also blurs dissenting views until they are no longer visible, thereby transforming data collection into bias confirmation and morphing self-deception into self-assurance.Michael Shermer Narrows Sayings By Michael Shermer: Being deeply knowledgeable on one subject narrows one's focus and increases confidence, but it also
I throw my hands up. 'There is nothing wrong with having dreams. I may be a stupid dreamer, but at least I have them.' 'Why is that a virtue?' she demands. 'All you dreamer types think the universe exists just for you and your passion.
'Better than not having any at all.'
She narrows her eyes at me, ready to debate. 'Really? Why?'
I can't believe I have to explain this. 'That's what we're put on earth to do.
Nicola Yoon Narrows Sayings By Nicola Yoon: I throw my hands up. 'There is nothing wrong with having dreams. I may be
Have you seen my daughter?"
"Daughter?" I'm the worst liar ever. I stare at Sarah's tall, imposing father and try to smile. "She's getting us a table?"
He narrows his gray eyes, and then tightens his mouth. "Is that a question or a statement?"
"Statement?" I'm so blowing this.
He exhales and nods. "Well, then. I guess I'll see you in the banquet room."
Harlin grins as Sarah's father walks away. "You are so subtle, Charlotte. Are you a ninja?"
"Shut up."
"I'm sure he didn't find that at all suspicious."
"Harlin!"
He laughs and kisses the top of my head. "I'll stop," he says. "But where is Sarah? You might want to find her before we sit down for chicken with that man. What will you say if he asks you to pass the mashed potatoes? Mashed potatoes?" Harlin finishes, imitating my voice.
Suzanne Young Narrows Sayings By Suzanne Young: Have you seen my daughter?""Daughter?" I'm the worst liar ever. I stare at Sarah's tall,
I find that when I get casual in my relationships with divinity and when it seems that no divine ear is listening and no divine voice is speaking, that I am far, far away. If I immerse myself in the scriptures the distance narrows and the spirituality returns. I find myself loving more intensely those whom I must love with all my heart and mind and strength, and loving them more, I find it easier to abide their counsel.Spencer W. Kimball Narrows Sayings By Spencer W. Kimball: I find that when I get casual in my relationships with divinity and when it
By the time you listen to this, I'll no longer remember what I said. I'll be an old message by then, buried under many new messages. The machine makes everything a message, which narrows the range of discourse and destroys the poetry of nobody home. Home is a failed idea. People are no longer home or not home. They're either picking up or not picking up.Don DeLillo Narrows Sayings By Don DeLillo: By the time you listen to this, I'll no longer remember what I said. I'll
You make your choices when you're far too young to understand their implications, and with each choice you make the field of possibility narrows.A.S.A Harrison Narrows Sayings By A.S.A Harrison: You make your choices when you're far too young to understand their implications, and with
Travel, of course, narrows the mind.Malcolm Muggeridge Narrows Sayings By Malcolm Muggeridge: Travel, of course, narrows the mind.
A person who doesn't breathe deeply reduces the life of his body. If he doesn't move freely, he restricts the life of his body. If he doesn't feel fully, he narrows the life of his body. And if his self-expression is constricted, he limits the life of his body.Alexander Lowen Narrows Sayings By Alexander Lowen: A person who doesn't breathe deeply reduces the life of his body. If he doesn't
We must avoid fastidiousness; neatness, when it is moderate, is a virtue; but when it is carried to an extreme, it narrows the mind.Francois Fenelon Narrows Sayings By Francois Fenelon: We must avoid fastidiousness; neatness, when it is moderate, is a virtue; but when it
From the very beginning, when you go into Scientology your world narrows down very quickly.Lawrence Wright Narrows Sayings By Lawrence Wright: From the very beginning, when you go into Scientology your world narrows down very quickly.
It is war that wastes a nations wealth, chokes its industries, kills its flower, narrows its sympathies, condemns it to be governed by adventurers, and leaves the puny, deformed, and unmanly to breed the next generation.George Santayana Narrows Sayings By George Santayana: It is war that wastes a nations wealth, chokes its industries, kills its flower, narrows
I managed to find a spot where we had the wind from astern, a steep head sea on our starboard quarter and the tide race through the narrows at the same time. A few hours of that and our fierce horse soldiers were like little lambs - sick little lambs.John Flanagan Narrows Sayings By John Flanagan: I managed to find a spot where we had the wind from astern, a steep
Telescopes and bathyscapes and sonar probes of Scottish lakes, Tacoma Narrows bridge collapse explained with abstract phase-space maps, some x-ray slides, a music score, Minard's Napoleonic war: the most exciting new frontier is charting what's already here.Randall Munroe Narrows Sayings By Randall Munroe: Telescopes and bathyscapes and sonar probes of Scottish lakes, Tacoma Narrows bridge collapse explained with
A society that is in its higher circles and middle levels widely believed to be a network of smart rackets does not produce men with an inner moral sense; a society that is merely expedient does not produce men of conscience. A society that narrows the meaning of 'success' to the big money and in its terms condemns failure as the chief vice, raising money to the plane of absolute value, will produce the sharp operator and the shady deal. Blessed are the cynical, for only they have what it takes to succeed.C. Wright Mills Narrows Sayings By C. Wright Mills: A society that is in its higher circles and middle levels widely believed to be
Gonzo narrows his eyes. 'How often do you clean that thing?' 'Every night,' the waitress answers. Her smile is strained. 'That's it? Do you know how long it takes for Listeria to grow under those hot lamps, even with ice?' Here we go. 'It can happen in just five hours. Five hours and you've got the salad bar of death!' The waitress looks confused. 'From Listerine?Libba Bray Narrows Sayings By Libba Bray: Gonzo narrows his eyes. 'How often do you clean that thing?' 'Every night,' the waitress
In those dangerous narrows grew children who knew too much too young but, sadly, always seemed to learn too little too late.Lori Lansens Narrows Sayings By Lori Lansens: In those dangerous narrows grew children who knew too much too young but, sadly, always

Rose: Bad breath!
Harriet Jones: That's it!
The Doctor: Calcium decay! Now that narrows it down! Calcium phosphate. Organic calcium - living calcium - creatures made out of living calcium, what else? What else? Hyphenated surname! YES! That narrows it down to one planet: Raxacoricofallapatorius!

Only cinema narrows its concern down to its content, that is to its story. It should, instead, concern itself with its form, its structure.Peter Greenaway Narrows Sayings By Peter Greenaway: Only cinema narrows its concern down to its content, that is to its story. It
The problem with a plan is that you fill up the blank page of a new day with a 'to-do' list before you get there. And if you're not careful there's no room for anything else.
A plan, especially a very focused one, narrows down the possibilies of the future to just a couple of things: that things either go to plan, or they don't.
John C. Parkin Narrows Sayings By John C. Parkin: The problem with a plan is that you fill up the blank page of a
It perplexes me how many people write books where everyone comes from the same basic set of backgrounds - middle class, white, straight, etc. It's like writing a book set in a world without coincidences, accidents, and colors. WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT? It reduces drama and conflicts and narrows the possible variety of points of view. And really, the whole magic of books is to show us the world through someone else's eyes. Experiencing the Other is what novels are for.Scott Westerfeld Narrows Sayings By Scott Westerfeld: It perplexes me how many people write books where everyone comes from the same basic
The only way to meet affliction is to pass through it solemnly, slowly, with humility and faith, as the Israelites passed through the sea. Then its very ways of misery will divide, and become to us a wall, on the right side and on the left, until the gulf narrows before our eyes and we land safe on the opposite sore.Dinah Maria Murlock Craik Narrows Sayings By Dinah Maria Murlock Craik: The only way to meet affliction is to pass through it solemnly, slowly, with humility
But it's strange, when you've always been told something is true, like the moon will come back. You need proof. And while you wait, you feel the entire balance of your world just tipping. It's crazy. But when it's over, and it does come back, that's the best, because it's all you want, everything narrows to just that. It's this great rush, like for that one second everything's okay with the world again. It's amazing.Sarah Dessen Narrows Sayings By Sarah Dessen: But it's strange, when you've always been told something is true, like the moon will
So you know what's wrong but you don't know what's right. What use is that? Well, it narrows down the options anyway.Rosamund Hodge Narrows Sayings By Rosamund Hodge: So you know what's wrong but you don't know what's right. What use is that?
So, what is this? I ask.
Quinn narrows her eyes at the morsel of food that vaguely resembles a cross between a chicken nugget and brains. Only slimier.
Steph Campbell Narrows Sayings By Steph Campbell: So, what is this? I ask.Quinn narrows her eyes at the morsel of food that
There is no more precious experience in life than friendship. And I am not forgetting love and marriage as I write this; the lovers, or the man and wife, who are not friends are but weakly joined together. One enlarges his circle of friends through contact with many people. One who limits those contacts narrows the circle and frequently his own point of view as well.Eleanor Roosevelt Narrows Sayings By Eleanor Roosevelt: There is no more precious experience in life than friendship. And I am not forgetting
A definite purpose, like blinders on a horse, inevitably narrows its possessor's point of view.Robert Frost Narrows Sayings By Robert Frost: A definite purpose, like blinders on a horse, inevitably narrows its possessor's point of view.
What kind of city doesn't have a football team? Explain that to me, Wes." "They do have one," I point out. "The Argonauts." Richard narrows his eyes. "Is it an NFL team?" "Well, no, it's CFL, but - " "Then they don't have a team," he says firmly. I stifle a laugh.Sarina Bowen Narrows Sayings By Sarina Bowen: What kind of city doesn't have a football team? Explain that to me, Wes." "They
Marriage has been a very rich and beautiful development of my life. Month by month as we live together we seem to come nearer to each other; and to feel a more complete fellowship. I do not feel that it in any way fetters or narrows my world:
it seems rather to enlarge it ...
Olive Schreiner Narrows Sayings By Olive Schreiner: Marriage has been a very rich and beautiful development of my life. Month by month
The most damaging example of the systems archetype called "drift to low performance" is the process by which modern industrial culture has eroded the goal of morality. The workings of the trap have been classic, and awful to behold. Examples of bad human behavior are held up, magnified by the media, affirmed by the culture, as typical. This is just what you would expect. After all, we're only human. The far more numerous examples of human goodness are barely noticed. They are "not news." They are exceptions. Must have been a saint. Can't expect everyone to behave like that. And so expectations are lowered. The gap between desired behavior and actual behavior narrows. Fewer actions are taken to affirm and instill ideals. The public discourse is full of cynicism. Public leaders are visibly, unrepentantly amoral or immoral and are not held to account. Idealism is ridiculed. Statements of moral belief are suspect. It is much easier to talk about hate in public than to talk about love.Donella H. Meadows Narrows Sayings By Donella H. Meadows: The most damaging example of the systems archetype called "drift to low performance" is the
"He's already been found, like I said," Jeb answers, his attention on the hand pressed at my neck. He narrows his eyes, and with a subtle flick of his fingers, Morpheus's shadow rises from the floor and wrestles Morpheus away from me.
Growling, Morpheus shoves the dark silhouette aside, then glares at Jeb. "Amateur. Cheap parlor tricks."
Jeb gives him a vicious grin. "A pupil is only as good as his tutor."
A.G. Howard Narrows Sayings By A.G. Howard: "He's already been found, like I said," Jeb answers, his attention on the hand pressed
I turn to Melanie. It's on her now. She narrows her green eyes at Willem. 'If you rape or murder my friend, I will kill you.'
Willem tsk-tsks. 'You Americans are so violent. I'm Dutch. The worst I will do is run her over with a bicycle.'
'While stoned!' Melanie adds.
'Okay, maybe there's that,' Willem admits.
Gayle Forman Narrows Sayings By Gayle Forman: I turn to Melanie. It's on her now. She narrows her green eyes at Willem.
She says that I have to abstain from all sexual activity for the next four weeks."
Christian's mouth drops open in shock, and I cannot keep a straight face any longer and grin at him like an idiot.
"Gotcha!"
He narrows his eyes, and I immediately stop laughing. In fact, he looks rather forbidding. Oh shit. My subconscious quails me in the corner as all the blood drains from my face, and I imagine him putting me across his knee again.
"Gotcha!" He says and smirks.
E.L. James Narrows Sayings By E.L. James: She says that I have to abstain from all sexual activity for the next four
Thought expands, but paralyzes; action animates, but narrows.Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe Narrows Sayings By Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe: Thought expands, but paralyzes; action animates, but narrows.
The writer is a definite human phenomenon. He is almost a type - as pugilists are a type. He may be a bad writer - an insipid one or a clumsy one - but there is a bug in him that keeps spinning yarns; and that bulges his brow a bit, narrows his jaws, weakens his eyes and gives him girl children instead of boys. Nobody but a writer can write. People who hang around writers for years - as producers did - who are much smarter and have much better taste, never learn to write.Ben Hecht Narrows Sayings By Ben Hecht: The writer is a definite human phenomenon. He is almost a type - as pugilists

I feel a strong hand caress my inner elbow and his lips at my ear. "You look good dancing."
I turn and Alex and I share the same breathing space. It's hard to keep my eyes away from his mouth. "Really? I didn't realize you saw me."
He narrows his eyes briefly. "I see you.
Isabelle Joshua Narrows Sayings By Isabelle Joshua: I feel a strong hand caress my inner elbow and his lips at my ear.
Try to avoid getting involved with somebody who's gonna need killing before it's over. It may seem to you that that narrows the field somewhat, but be diligent.Jill Conner Browne Narrows Sayings By Jill Conner Browne: Try to avoid getting involved with somebody who's gonna need killing before it's over.

I have spent a good part of my life looking for the perfect barbecue. There is no point in looking in places like Texas, where they put some kind of ketchup on beef and call it barbecue. Barbecue is pork, which narrows the search to the South, and if it's really good pork barbecue you are looking for, to North Carolina.Charles Kuralt Narrows Sayings By Charles Kuralt: I have spent a good part of my life looking for the perfect barbecue. There

Are you getting your period?" She narrows her eyes.
No! God. I hate that. I hate when every negative act is blamed on your period." Sometimes bitchiness is just bitchiness, happily unattached to anything hormonal. It should get full credit.
Deb Caletti Narrows Sayings By Deb Caletti: Are you getting your period?" She narrows her eyes.No! God. I hate that. I hate
Time narrows or expands according to how we approach it. It varies with a man's breadth, with his heart.Ilya Ehrenburg Narrows Sayings By Ilya Ehrenburg: Time narrows or expands according to how we approach it. It varies with a man's
If you're lucky, in some point in the future when you're in need of guidance or perhaps moral support, you may cross paths with a suitable mentor. Even luckier, you'll realize you had one in your life all along and you'll gain a new appreciation for how you benefited from that relationship. The luckiest relationship of all, of course, is a combination of the two. You've had help all along, and as the path widens or narrows, whatever the case may be, new and powerful influences will enter your life and aid your progress. In my experience, a mentor doesn't necessarily tell you what to do, but more importantly: tells you what they did or might do, then trusts you to draw your own conclusions and act accordingly. If you succeed, they'll take one step back and if you fail, they'll take one step closer. Whatever it is they teach you, pass it on.Michael J. Fox Narrows Sayings By Michael J. Fox: If you're lucky, in some point in the future when you're in need of guidance
It's just instinct. Faulty learning. He takes a step back, groping for his sidearm instead of swinging the rifle like a club. Wastes a second that he doesn't have, and it's all over. Except that it isn't. In combat, Parks narrows down. It's not even a conscious thing, so much, or a trick he's learned. It just happens. He does the job that's in front of him, and pretty much shunts everything else into a holding pattern. SoM.R. Carey Narrows Sayings By M.R. Carey: It's just instinct. Faulty learning. He takes a step back, groping for his sidearm instead
When he has disappeared, Mother clears her throat. I don't turn around and look at her in the rocking chair. I don't want her to see the disappointment in my face that he's gone.
"Go ahead, Mother," I finally mutter. "Say what you want to say."
"Don't you let him cheapen you."
I look back at her, eye her suspiciously, even though she is so frail under the wool blanket. Sorry is the fool who ever underestimates my mother.
"If Stuart doesn't know how intelligent and kind I raised you to be, he can march straight on back to State Street." She narrows her eyes at the winter land. "Frankly, I don't care much for Stuart. He doesn't know how lucky he was to have you.
Kathyrn Stockett Narrows Sayings By Kathyrn Stockett: When he has disappeared, Mother clears her throat. I don't turn around and look at
Theres something incredible about putting a helmet on just before a game; its a feeling only a football player knows. Your vision narrows, and the whole world shrinks. You cant hear much of what goes on outside you, but you can hear yourself breathe and you can feel yourself sweat.Carl Deuker Narrows Sayings By Carl Deuker: Theres something incredible about putting a helmet on just before a game; its a feeling
Hey Cabe?" she says, drying her hair, feeling refreshed. Grinning. Putting all thoughts but one aside for the moment. "You wanna go get Jimmy a raincoat and we'll take care of you?"
Cabel looks at her.
Turns his head and narrows his eyes.
Who the hell is Jimmy?
Lisa McMann Narrows Sayings By Lisa McMann: Hey Cabe?" she says, drying her hair, feeling refreshed. Grinning. Putting all thoughts but one
People normally cut reality into compartments, and so are unable to see the interdependence of all phenomena. To see one in all and all in one is to break through the great barrier which narrows one's perception of reality, a barrier which Buddhism calls the attachment to the false view of self.

He dumped me again!' She narrows her eyes on Tom accusingly. I drop my bag by my desk and watch as Victoria fires all sorts of accusations at a very guilty looking Tom. 'Don't ask me to come out with you ever again,' she spits, pointing her pen at him. 'Friday, you cleared off with the scientist, and last night you didn't even have the decency to go home with the same man!'

'Tom!' I gasp sarcastically. 'I thought the scientist was your soul mate?'

'He still might be,' Tom defends himself in a high pitched voice. 'I'm just sampling what's on offer before I decide on what to invest in.

Like the body craves oxygen, the mind is desperate for certainty. It believes that without a safe foothold on reality, it will die.
But the fascinating thing is that the illusion of certainty is exactly the opposite of safety because it hardens and narrows the vision to make everything fit its own scope. Then when new information arrives which would be its ally, the mind pushes it away in favor of the leaky life raft to which it clings, sinking all the while beneath the waves of change.
In fact, the only antidote for this is to embrace 'I don't know' so deeply that a powerful, dynamic safety emerges. This is like learning to surf so well that a tsunami wave shows up as a challenge to test our mastery.

Rebecca and Robert enjoy the fact that they're so similar. They have very little sense that it limits them, narrows their perspective on life, or blinds them to a wide array of opinions, experiences, and different ways of thinking and being. But the fundamental human preference that they exemplify - for the familiar over the alien, the known over the unknown, and the comfortable over the dissonant - has insidious but important consequences.Anonymous Narrows Sayings By Anonymous: Rebecca and Robert enjoy the fact that they're so similar.

She didn't know then that life has a way of backing you into a corner. You make your choices when you're far too young to understand their implications, and with each choice you make the field of possibility narrows. You choose a career and other careers are lost to you. You choose a mate and commit to loving no other.A.S.A Harrison Narrows Sayings By A.S.A Harrison: She didn't know then that life has a way of backing you into a corner.
I won't share you, Dylan. I mean that. If you think for one second now that we're married, you can try and pull some kind of shit over on me, you'd better think again. I can take whatever you can dish out when it comes to pain, embarrassment and humiliation, and whatever else you have going on in that wicked mind of yours, but I'll be damned if I'll share you with another woman. Or man."
What the fuck? I almost laugh at her, but she's so serious she would probably slap the shit out of me. "Calm the hell down. I'm not trying to pull anything over on you, okay? And seriously, a man?"
"Well, I don't know. Maybe one of your secrets is that you like getting pegged in the ass or something."
This time I laugh out loud at her and she narrows her eyes at me.
"Don't ask me to peg you either, because it's never going to happen."
I laugh even louder. Good God this woman is funny. "I promise you that I don't want to be pegged, Isa.

"My Peregrination Cap," he grumbles, straightening his tie and vest while wavering on wobbly legs.
I gesture to the layer of moths crawling around on Gizmo's roof. "We lost a few of them to the wind. Sorry."
"Brilliant." Scowling, Morpheus walks over and sweeps his hand across the insects, coaxing them to form the hat. They manage all but the brim. He puts it on anyway and turns to me.
I bite my cheeks in an effort not to laugh.
He narrows his eyes. "Don't get too cheeky, little plum. Though your prank may have been irresistibly wicked, I'm still in the lead by a set of wings."

A thousand years from now" Leonidas declared, "two thousand, three thousand years hence, men a hundred generations yet unborn may, for their private purposes, make journey to our country. They will come, scholars perhaps or travelers from beyond the sea, prompted by curiosity regarding the past or appetite for knowledge of the ancients. They will peer out across our plain and probe among the stone and rubble of our nation. What will they learn about us? Their shovels will unearth neither brilliant palaces nor temples. Their picks will prize forth no everlasting architecture or art. What will remain of the Spartans? Not monuments of marble or bronze, but this- what we do here today."

We say, "Well, the only answer is ... " or, "If you would just ... " Whatever follows these two statements narrows the choices right there. It gets the vision right down close to the ground so that you don't see anything happening outside. Humans tend not to see over a long range. Now we are required, in these generations, to have a longer range view of what we inflict on the world around us. This is where, I think, science fiction is helping. I don't think that the mere writing of such a book as Brave New World or 1984 prevents those things which are portrayed in those books from happening. But I do think they alert us to that possibility and make that possibility less likely. They make us aware that we may be going in that direction.Frank Herbert Narrows Sayings By Frank Herbert: We say, "Well, the only answer is ... " or, "If you would just ...
The Head of the Charles in Cambridge, Mass., is the great American crew event, athletically and socially. It occurs the second weekend in October; secondary schools and colleges send shells in all categories in the three-mile race up the Charles River. Drunken Preps line the banks and bridges at Harvard, ready to howl with glee as a coxswain rams his shell into a stanchion of the Eliot Street Bridge (where the river narrows and curves with treacherous suddenness).Lisa Birnbach Narrows Sayings By Lisa Birnbach: The Head of the Charles in Cambridge, Mass., is the great American crew event, athletically
She didn't get this pish from you, did she? Because I'm still looking for a reason to lop off one of your appendages after what you did to her, and this looks like the perfect excuse."

"For god's sake," I mutter.

Gavin backs up with his hands raised. "Don't blame me. I might have presented the idea, but she's the one who sauntered off with it."

Derrick narrows his eyes. "Aileana, is that true?"

"Yes," I snap. "Well, not the sauntering. I don't saunter."

"Does . . . this mean I get to keep my appendages?" Gavin asks.

"For now," Derrick says, holding up the needle in a clear threat.

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the areas of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses, for art establishes the basic human truths which must serve as the touchstones of our judgement. The artists, however faithful to his personal vision of reality, becomes the last champion of the individual mind and sensibility against an intrusive society and an officious state. The great artist is thus a solitary figure. He has, as Frost said, "a lover's quarrel with the world." In pursuing his perceptions of reality he must often sail against the currents of his time. This is not a popular role.John F. Kennedy Narrows Sayings By John F. Kennedy: When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows

We all crave latitude in life, yet simultaneously dig ourselves deeper into domestic entrapment. We may dream of traveling light but accumulate as much as we can to keep us burdened and rooted to one spot. And we have no one to blame but ourselves. Because-though we all muse on the theme of escape-we stil find the notion of responsibility irresistible. The career, the house, the dependents, the debt-it grounds us. Provides us with a necessary security, a reason to get upin the morning. It narrows choice and ergo, gives us certainty. And though just about every man I know rails against being so cul-de-saced by domesic burden, we all embrace it. Embrace it with a vengeance.Douglas Kennedy Narrows Sayings By Douglas Kennedy: We all crave latitude in life, yet simultaneously dig ourselves deeper into domestic entrapment. We

That as people age, accumulate more and more private experiences, their sense of history tightens, narrows, becomes more personal?
