I have my moments of deep discouragement.

The thing is, being lonely is like walking in the cold without a coat. It's uncomfortable, but eventually you go numb. Once you get used to not being lonely, though, the shock of going back is like having your down comforter yanked off at six o'clock on a Minnesota December morning.Maggie Hall O'the Sayings By Maggie Hall: The thing is, being lonely is like walking in the cold without a coat. It's

But this too is true: stories can save us.Tim O'Brien O'the Sayings By Tim O'Brien: But this too is true: stories can save us.
All I was aware of was this hole, this gaping hole where my heart should have been. I read somewhere once that your heart is supposed to be the same size as your clenched fist, but this hole felt far bigger. It seemed to expand over my whole upper body and it felt cold, vacant - the cooling wind seemed to cut right through it. I felt frail and insubstantial, as if the wind could have blown me away.Maggie O'Farrell O'the Sayings By Maggie O'Farrell: All I was aware of was this hole, this gaping hole where my heart should
O man, whoever you are and wherever you come from, for I know you will come, I am Cyrus who won the Persians their empire.

I am mindful that scientific achievement is rooted in the past, is cultivated to full stature by many contemporaries and flourishes only in favorable environment. No individual is alone responsible for a single stepping stone along the path of progress, and where the path is smooth progress is most rapid. In my own work this has been particularly true.Ernest O. Lawrence O'the Sayings By Ernest O. Lawrence: I am mindful that scientific achievement is rooted in the past, is cultivated to full

Romance is not the giving of flowers, or any other gift. It is a way of life, a way of being. Romance is every thought, gesture, and deed on your part to make another feel special, even if only for a moment. For a moment can last a lifetime in the heart of the recipient, be that the one you love, or a complete stranger.Shane K.P. O'Neill O'the Sayings By Shane K.P. O'Neill: Romance is not the giving of flowers, or any other gift. It is a way
O night, O sweetest time, though black of hue,
with peace you force all the restless work to end;
those who exalt you see and understand,
and he is sound of mind who honours you.
You cut the thread of tired thoughts, for so
you offer calm in your moist shade; you send
to this low sphere the dreams where we ascend
up to the highest, where I long to go.
Shadow of death that brings to quiet close
all miseries that plague the heart and soul,
for those in pain the last and best of cures;
you heal the flesh of its infirmities,
dry and our tears and shut away our toil,
and free the good from wrath and fretting cares.
Michelangelo Buonarroti O'the Sayings By Michelangelo Buonarroti: O night, O sweetest time, though black of hue,with peace you force all the restless
The silence of landscape conceals vast presence. Place is not simply location. A place is a profound individuality. With complete attention, landscape celebrates the liturgy of the seasons, giving itself unreservedly to the passion of the goddess. The shape of a landscape is an ancient and silent form of consciousness. Mountains are huge contemplatives. Rivers and streams offer voice; they are the tears of the earth's joy and despair. The earth is full of soul ... Civilization has tamed place. Left to itself, the curvature of the landscape invites presence and the loyalty of stillness.John O'Donohue O'the Sayings By John O'Donohue: The silence of landscape conceals vast presence. Place is not simply location. A place is
ERANNA TO SAPPHO
O You wild adept at throwing!
Like a spear by other things, I'd lain
there beside my next of kin. Your strain
flung me far. To where's beyond my knowing.
None can bring me back again.
Sisters think upon me as they twine,
and the house is full of warm relation.
I alone am out of the design,
and I tremble like a supplication;
for the lovely goddess all creation
bowers in legend lives this life of mine.
SAPPHO TO ERANNA
With unrest I want to inundate you,
want to brandish you, you vine-wreathed stave.
Want, like death itself, to penetrate you
and to pass you onwards like the grave
to the All: to all these things that wait you.
Rainer Maria Rilke O'the Sayings By Rainer Maria Rilke: ERANNA TO SAPPHOO You wild adept at throwing!Like a spear by other things, I'd lainthere
The Sons of the Serpent - they want you angry. At the world. They need us all to feel like victims. And it's an easy get, because times suck. Every day is a battle. We all feel like we're on the wrong end of the wrecking ball. We feel at the mercy of forces beyond our control, and that makes us scared. And that's rocket fuel for S.O.B.'s like the Serpents. They prey on us when we're frightened. They tell us our enemies are the immigrants down the street, or the food stamp family next door. They encourage us to turn our fear into rage, and we fall for it because it's 'empowering.' Except it's not. We don't become 'empowered.' We become weaponized.Mark Waid O'the Sayings By Mark Waid: The Sons of the Serpent - they want you angry. At the world. They need

Try this." O'Grady smiled. "It's the only thing we drink. It'll warm your insides."

It's a great incentive to work long hours. I limit the holiday to two weeks and then get the hell back to the office. If I had my choice I wouldn't take holidays but my wife insists on time with the kids. That's enough. Prior to getting married I never took a holiday.Michael O'Leary O'the Sayings By Michael O'Leary: It's a great incentive to work long hours. I limit the holiday to two weeks

It's a booley village," Ian told her. "The islanders used to take their animals into the hills for the summ. They'd camp out in these stone huts: men, women, and children. Everyone stayed up all night, sang, told stories, watched the stars. It must have been great craic."
"How do you know this stuff?" she asked, admiringly.
"I' a bloody genius." When she threw him a look, he grinned. " I also read it in the guidebook.

...sola est quies,
mecum ruina cuncta si video abruta;
mecum omnia abeant. Trahere cum pereas, libet.
(...the only calm for me -
if with me I see the whole universe o'erwhelmed in ruins;
with me let all things pass away; 'tis sweet to drag others down when thou art perishing.)
Seneca. O'the Sayings By Seneca.: ...sola est quies,mecum ruina cuncta si video abruta;mecum omnia abeant. Trahere cum pereas, libet.(...the only
O Lord, bless the blood and the flesh of this the creature that You gave me," Jamie said softly. He scooped a pinch of the herbs himself, and rubbed them between thumb and forefinger, in a rain of fragrant dust. "Created by Your hand as You created man, Life given for life. That me and mine may eat with thanks for the gift, That me and mine may give thanks for Your own sacrifice of blood and flesh, Life given for life.Diana Gabaldon O'the Sayings By Diana Gabaldon: O Lord, bless the blood and the flesh of this the creature that You gave

But I confess that much as I love them, I could wish them both to the Devil, with their high-flown, egocentrical points of honour and their purblind spurring one another on to remarkable exploits that may very well end in unnecessary death. In their death, which is their concern: but also in mine, to say nothing of the rest of the ship's company.Patrick O'Brian O'the Sayings By Patrick O'Brian: But I confess that much as I love them, I could wish them both to

A lot of times, the inspiration for a novel is a messy bird's nest of shiny things. Little things that don't make a whole lot of sense or that, no matter how hard you look, cannot be found directly in the finished book.Molly O'Keefe O'the Sayings By Molly O'Keefe: A lot of times, the inspiration for a novel is a messy bird's nest of
As to moral courage, I have very rarely met with the two o'clock in the morning kind. I mean unprepared courage, that which is necessary on an unexpected occasion, and which, in spite of the most unforeseen events, leaves full freedom of judgement and decision.Napoleon Bonaparte O'the Sayings By Napoleon Bonaparte: As to moral courage, I have very rarely met with the two o'clock in the
I discovered that joy is not the negation of pain, but rather acknowledging the presence of pain and feeling happiness in spite of it.Lupita Nyong'o O'the Sayings By Lupita Nyong'o: I discovered that joy is not the negation of pain, but rather acknowledging the presence
We are all free in a democracy to believe whatever we wish, so why call any opinion such as Creationism a virulent cultural parasite-equivalent? Because it represents a triumph of blind religious faith over carefully tested fact. It is not a conception of reality forged by evidence and logical judgment. Instead, it is part of the price of admission to a religious tribe. Faith is the evidence given of a person's submission to a particular god, and even then not to the deity directly but to other humans who claim to represent the god.Edward O. Wilson O'the Sayings By Edward O. Wilson: We are all free in a democracy to believe whatever we wish, so why call

O gods, If any gods will listen, I deserve Punishment surely, I do not refuse it, But lest, in living, I offend the living, Offend the dead in death, drive me away From either realm, change me somehow, refuse me Both life and death!

Ovid O'the Sayings By Ovid: O gods, If any gods will listen, I deserve Punishment surely, I do not refuse

My first paying gig was a play called 'The Voice of the Prairie' at a theater that no longer exists in Chicago called Wisdom Bridge. I played a fast-talking radio huckster - a salesman of crystal sets in the 1920s - and I actually won an award. Look at that! And then promptly didn't get hired for a year.Denis O'Hare O'the Sayings By Denis O'Hare: My first paying gig was a play called 'The Voice of the Prairie' at a

I am Evelyn Wastneys, and I died,
I've since come to believe that the world is populated by multitudes of women sitting at windows, inseparable from their surroundings. I myself spent many hours at a window on the Zattere, waiting for my father's return, waiting for my life to appear like one of those great ships that came into the harbor, broad sails filled with the wind of providence ... I'd grown transparent as the glass through which I peered, dangerously invisible even to myself. It was then I knew I must set my life in motion or I would disappear.Regina O'Melveny O'the Sayings By Regina O'Melveny: I've since come to believe that the world is populated by multitudes of women sitting
Today in Washington, D.C., several government buildings were left without power. Of course, the White House will be without power for two more years.Conan O'Brien O'the Sayings By Conan O'Brien: Today in Washington, D.C., several government buildings were left without power. Of course, the White
You are from alone in the community of scientists, and here is a professional secret to encourage you: many of the most successful scientists in the world today are mathematically no more than semiliterate. A metaphor will clarify the paradox in this statement. Where elite mathematicians often serve as architects of theory in the expanding realm of science, the remaining large majority of basic and applied scientists map the terrain, scout the frontier, cut the pathways, and raise the first buildings along the way. They define the problems that mathematicians, on occasion, may help solve. They think primarily in images and facts, and only marginally in mathematics.Edward O. Wilson O'the Sayings By Edward O. Wilson: You are from alone in the community of scientists, and here is a professional secret
Each county has usually some family, or personage, supposed to have been favoured or plagued, especially by the phantoms, as the Hackets of Castle Hacket, Galway, who had for their ancestor a fairy, or John-o'-Daly of Lisadell, Sligo, who wrote Eilleen Aroon,W.B.Yeats O'the Sayings By W.B.Yeats: Each county has usually some family, or personage, supposed to have been favoured or plagued,

When you make a bad pitch and the hitter puts it out of the park and you cost your team the game, it's a real test of your maturity to be able to stand in front of your locker fifteen minutes later and admit it to the world. How many people in other professions would be willing to have their job performances evaluated that way, in front of millions, every afternoon at five o'clock.Bob Feller O'the Sayings By Bob Feller: When you make a bad pitch and the hitter puts it out of the park

O CHILDREN OF ADAM! Holy words and pure and goodly deeds ascend unto the heaven of celestial glory. Strive that your deeds may be cleansed from the dust of self and hypocrisy and find favor at the court of glory; for ere long the assayers of mankind shall, in the holy presence of the Adored One, accept naught but absolute virtue and deeds of stainless purity. This is the daystar of wisdom and of divine mystery that hath shone above the horizon of the divine will. Blessed are they that turn thereunto.Baha'u'llah O'the Sayings By Baha'u'llah: O CHILDREN OF ADAM! Holy words and pure and goodly deeds ascend unto the heaven
O, let us pay the time but needful woe,
Since it hath been beforehand with our griefs.
This England never did, nor never shall,
Lie at the proud foot of a conqueror
But when it first did help to wound itself.
Now these her princes are come home again,
Come the three corners of the world in arms,
And we shall shock them. Nought shall make us rue
If England to itself do rest but true.
William Shakespeare O'the Sayings By William Shakespeare: O, let us pay the time but needful woe,Since it hath been beforehand with our
The Lean Startup isn't just about how to create a more successful entrepreneurial business, it's about what we can learn from those businesses to improve virtually everything we do. I imagine Lean Startup principles applied to government programs, to healthcare, and to solving the world's great problems. It's ultimately an answer to the question: How can we learn more quickly what works, and discard what doesn't?Tim O'Reilly O'the Sayings By Tim O'Reilly: The Lean Startup isn't just about how to create a more successful entrepreneurial business, it's
O, to be a ruler of life
not a slave, To meet life as a powerful conqueror, No fumes

Walt Whitman O'the Sayings By Walt Whitman: O, to be a ruler of life not a slave, To meet life as a
The three-pound organ in your skull - with its pink consistency of Jell-o - is an alien kind of computational material. It is composed of miniaturized, self-configuring parts, and it vastly outstrips anything we've dreamt of building.David Eagleman O'the Sayings By David Eagleman: The three-pound organ in your skull - with its pink consistency of Jell-o - is
In a true war story, if there's a moral at all, it's like the thread that makes the cloth. You can't tease it out. You can't extract the meaning without unraveling the deeper meaning. And in the end, really, there's nothing much to say about a true war story, except maybe "Oh." True war stories do not generalize. They do not indulge in abstraction or analysis. ForTim O'Brien O'the Sayings By Tim O'Brien: In a true war story, if there's a moral at all, it's like the thread

He who the sword of heaven will bear
Should be as holy as severe;
Pattern in himself to know,
Grace to stand, and virtue go;
More nor less to others paying
Than by self-offences weighing.
Shame to him whose cruel striking
Kills for faults of his own liking!
Twice treble shame on Angelo,
To weed my vice and let his grow!
O, what may man within him hide,
Though angel on the outward side!
How may likeness made in crimes,
Making practise on the times,
To draw with idle spiders' strings
Most ponderous and substantial things!
Craft against vice I must apply:
With Angelo to-night shall lie
His old betrothed but despised;
So disguise shall, by the disguised,
Pay with falsehood false exacting,
And perform an old contracting.
William Shakespeare O'the Sayings By William Shakespeare: He who the sword of heaven will bearShould be as holy as severe;Pattern in himself

In books or films, it is desirable to have a climactic battle scene, but the world does not operate in those gross dramatic terms.

Haven't you heard, though,
About the ships where war has found them out

And children in the ships and in the towns?
Robert Frost O'the Sayings By Robert Frost: Haven't you heard, though,About the ships where war has found them outAt sea, about the
As you leave these gates and re-enter society, one thing is certain. Everyone out there is going to hate you. Never tell anyone in a roadside diner that you went to Harvard. In those situations, the correct response to, 'Where did you go to school?' is 'School? I never had much in the way of book learnin' and such.' And then get in your BMW and get the hell out of there.Conan O'Brien O'the Sayings By Conan O'Brien: As you leave these gates and re-enter society, one thing is certain. Everyone out there
The best quality about Kobe Bryant? You want me to be honest? I don't know. I'll tell you why. I open my arms to everybody. But he never stepped forward for the embrace.

The lawyer was Randol Schoenberg, the grandson of a venerated Viennese composer who had fled the rise of Hitler. The return of this ominous heir was anything but welcome. The painting Schoenberg sought was a shimmering gold masterpiece, painted a century earlier, by the artistic heretic Gustav Klimt. It was a portrait of a Viennese society beauty, Adele Bloch-Bauer.Anne-Marie O'Connor O'the Sayings By Anne-Marie O'Connor: The lawyer was Randol Schoenberg, the grandson of a venerated Viennese composer who had fled

You're jealous," I said. His face went cold and remote, and I knew I should shut up, but my humiliation had been festering since the game, turning to anger, thick and oily in my veins.

In her previous novels, Maggie O'Farrell has often measured the distance between intimates and the unexpected intimacy of distance - geographic, temporal, cultural.

There will be a time when love is beautiful and passionate and nothing else will exist but you and the person you love, and a time when love hurts so badly that you will wish you wouldn't wake up. I say this. Always, always, always approach love with the heart of the angel you were born with. Never become bitter and always know that pain goes away. Marry for love. But also choose to marry a man or woman who you love that treats you with the ultimate respect for your expression of who you are at your very core. Always see the good, appreciate every moment and remember that love lives on forever.Julieanne O'Connor O'the Sayings By Julieanne O'Connor: There will be a time when love is beautiful and passionate and nothing else will

True character arises from a deeper well than religion. It is the internalization of moral principles of a society, augmented by those tenets personally chosen by the individual, strong enough to endure through trials of solitude and adversity. The principles are fitted together into what we call integrity, literally the integrated self, wherein personal decisions feel good and true. Character is in turn the enduring source of virtue. It stands by itself and excites admiration in others.Edward O. Wilson O'the Sayings By Edward O. Wilson: True character arises from a deeper well than religion. It is the internalization of moral
And now, from beneath the audible, came a low reverberation. It came up through the soles of my feet. I stood still while it hummed upward bone by bone. There is no adequate simile. The pulse of the country worked through my body until I recognized it as music. As language. And the language ran everywhere inside me, like blood; and for feeling, it was as if through time I had been made of earth or mud or other insensate matter. Like a rhyme learned in antiquity a verse blazed to mind: O be quick, my soul, to answer Him; be jubilant, my feet! And sure enough my soul leapt dancing inside my chest, and my feet sprang up and sped me forward, and the sense came to me of undergoing creation, as the land and the trees and the beasts of the orchard had done some long time before. And the pulse of the country came around me, as of voices lifted at great distance, and moved through me as I ran until the words came clear, and I sang with them a beautiful and curious chant.Leif Enger O'the Sayings By Leif Enger: And now, from beneath the audible, came a low reverberation. It came up through the

It's pretty crazy. I was thinking about that today, how 'True Blood' has penetrated so much of the cultural zeitgeist. It's truly amazing; it's incredible! The cover of 'Rolling Stone' is major. What's next, the cover of 'Vanity Fair?' When I'm in a 'New Yorker' cartoon, then I will feel like I have made it.Denis O'Hare O'the Sayings By Denis O'Hare: It's pretty crazy.

When you look at some faces, you can see the turbulence of the infinite beginning to gather to the surface. This moment can open in a gaze from a stranger, or in a conversation with someone you know well. Suddenly, without their intending it or being conscious of it, their gaze lasts for only a second. In that slightest interim, something more than the person looks out.John O'Donohue O'the Sayings By John O'Donohue: When you look at some faces, you can see the turbulence of the infinite beginning
Lies like knives, lies like poultices. The tiger's stripe, the fawn's dusky dapple. And everywhere, everywhere, the lie that people told themselves. Dreams like cut flowers, with no nourishing root. Will-o'-the-wisp lights to make them feel less alone in the dark. Hollow resolutions and empty excuses.Frances Hardinge O'the Sayings By Frances Hardinge: Lies like knives, lies like poultices. The tiger's stripe, the fawn's dusky dapple. And everywhere,
