It goes without saying that I will do anything at any price to pull myself out of a situation like this [rejection] so that I can start work immediately on my next Salon picture and ensure that such a thing should not happen again.Claude Monet Saying No At Work Sayings By Claude Monet: It goes without saying that I will do anything at any price to pull myself
I'm not saying people shouldn't apply themselves and work hard. You do have to try to make your own luck. But I know people firsthand who worked incredibly hard, who were really smart, who never got into trouble, and still didn't get a break.David Lindsay-Abaire Saying No At Work Sayings By David Lindsay-Abaire: I'm not saying people shouldn't apply themselves and work hard. You do have to try
There's an old saying that great writing is simple but not easy, and so it is. The search for that one plain but inobvious [SIC] word that will do the work of five, the agony of untangling a complex idea that has become a mess of phrases in the writer's mind, the willingness to keep doing it over and over again until it is right
all of that plus some luck yields prose so clear that it seems a child could have written it.
William Souder Saying No At Work Sayings By William Souder: There's an old saying that great writing is simple but not easy, and so it
As a result, we must entirely reverse the traditional idea of the author. We are accustomed, as we have seen earlier, to saying that the author is the genial creator of a work in which he deposits, with infinite wealth and generosity, an inexhaustible world of significations. We are used to thinking that the author is so different from all other men, and so transcendent with regard to all languages that, as soon as he speaks, meaning begins to proliferate, to proliferate indefinitely.Michel Foucault Saying No At Work Sayings By Michel Foucault: As a result, we must entirely reverse the traditional idea of the author. We are
Ouija boards don't work.'
Dex rocked back on his heels, still grinning. 'That a fact?'
'I'm just saying, I don't think that anything made by Milton Bradley is much good for contacting the dark side, that's all.
Rachel Hawkins Saying No At Work Sayings By Rachel Hawkins: Ouija boards don't work.'Dex rocked back on his heels, still grinning. 'That a fact?''I'm just
All the world complain now a days of a press of trivial duties & engagements which prevents their employing themselves on some higher ground they know of, - but undoubtedly if they were made of the right stuff to work on that higher ground, provided they were released from all those engagements - they would now at once fulfill the superior engagement, and neglect all the rest, as naturally as they breathe. They would never be caught saying that they had no time for this when the dullest man knows that this is all that he has time for.Henry David Thoreau Saying No At Work Sayings By Henry David Thoreau: All the world complain now a days of a press of trivial duties & engagements
After the success of 'August,' there were people saying I should change my life. And maybe I should have bought a yacht and traveled the world instead of returning to Steppenwolf to act in and write plays. But I'm from the Midwest, and that's what we do: We go back to work.Tracy Letts Saying No At Work Sayings By Tracy Letts: After the success of 'August,' there were people saying I should change my life. And
I find on songwriting, I really have to work at making sure I'm not imitating myself. You know? Which happens to all of us. When an artist becomes really famous, you'll start listening to songs and saying "Wait ... I've heard that before" and it'll be one of theirs. We all fall into that rut. If you don't have something to force you out of it, then it's kind of a dangerous business.Andy Wilkinson Saying No At Work Sayings By Andy Wilkinson: I find on songwriting, I really have to work at making sure I'm not imitating
Not every writer needs a plan, but in my experience many believe they don't need a plan when, frankly, they do. I was that kind of writer: I thought, ha ha ha, stupid people saying I should outline or do preparatory work, those silly assholes with their misunderstanding of my genius. If you find you're lost in the woods of your own fiction and feel like giving up
it might be because you have no plan. You can retrofit one. Doing that will help put you back on track and give your current writing a jolt of needed organization.
Chuck Wendig Saying No At Work Sayings By Chuck Wendig: Not every writer needs a plan, but in my experience many believe they don't need
How does it happen that a properly endowed natural scientist comes to concern himself with epistemology? Is there no more valuable work in his specialty? I hear many of my colleagues saying, and I sense it from many more, that they feel this way. I cannot share this sentiment. When I think about the ablest students whom I have encountered in my teaching, that is, those who distinguish themselves by their independence of judgment and not merely their quick-wittedness, I can affirm that they had a vigorous interest in epistemology. They happily began discussions about the goals and methods of science, and they showed unequivocally, through their tenacity in defending their views, that the subject seemed important to them. Indeed, one should not be surprised at this.Albert Einstein Saying No At Work Sayings By Albert Einstein: How does it happen that a properly endowed natural scientist comes to concern himself with
I thought Oliver was trying hard before, but now I realize it's quite the opposite
he doesn't try, he just is, makes up his mind and doesn't check if it's going to work for his image or come off wrong. Since the rest of us are being so self-aware, his presence seems calculated. No one can possibly be that breezy, saying what he thinks, feeling what he feels. I can see why people don't like him for this very reason
it's so much easier to call him a poser.
Because if he's the real deal, then that makes the rest of us fakes.
Lindsey Leavitt Saying No At Work Sayings By Lindsey Leavitt: I thought Oliver was trying hard before, but now I realize it's quite the opposite
I saw a cartoon that describes this. A head of iceberg lettuce is sitting in a garden saying, "Oh, no, how did I get in this vegetable garden again? I wanted to be a wildflower!" The caption reads, "Oscar is born again as a head of iceberg lettuce in order to overcome his fear of being eaten." One can think from a bigger perspective than this whole notion of reward and punishment. You could see your life as an adult education course. Some of the curriculum you like and some you don't like; some of what comes up you find workable, some you don't. That's the curriculum for attaining enlightenment. The question is, how do you work with it?Pema Chodron Saying No At Work Sayings By Pema Chodron: I saw a cartoon that describes this. A head of iceberg lettuce is sitting in
The most work he did on [the urinals] was to run a brush once or twice apiece, singing some song as loud as he could in time to the swishing brush; then he'd splash in some Clorox and he'd be through ... And when the Big Nurse ... came in to check McMurphy's cleaning assignment personally, she brought a little compact mirror and she held it under the rim of the bowls. She walked along shaking her head and saying, "Why, this is an outrage ... an outrage ... " at every bowl. McMurphy sidled right along beside her, winking down his nose and saying in answer, "No; that's a toilet bowl ... a TOILET bowl.Ken Kesey Saying No At Work Sayings By Ken Kesey: The most work he did on [the urinals] was to run a brush once or
You will do yourself a disservice if you confine your reading to the rising star whose six-figure, two-book contract might seem to indicate where your own work should be heading. I'm not saying you shouldn't read such writers, some of whom are excellent and deserving of celebrity. I'm only pointing out that they represent the dot at the end of the long, glorious, complex sentence in which literature has been written.Francine Prose Saying No At Work Sayings By Francine Prose: You will do yourself a disservice if you confine your reading to the rising star
It struck me that the movies had spent more than half a century saying, They lived happily ever after and the following quarter-century warning that they'll be lucky to make it through the weekend. Possibly now we are now entering a third era in which the movies will be sounding a note of cautious optimism: You know it just might work.Nora Ephron Saying No At Work Sayings By Nora Ephron: It struck me that the movies had spent more than half a century saying, They
You can't say 'Oh my stars.' 'Oh my stars' is not a thing, and it makes no sense. The whole point of that saying is that you're calling out to someone for help, and stars are not 'someone,' and certainly not capable of helping." The words were out and gone before I realized what was happening. Grace just stared back at me, and I wanted so badly to shake the girl and make her realize that life couldn't be all overalls and pink rain boots and guardian stars. I wanted to make her realize that sometimes you had to work.Natalie Bina Saying No At Work Sayings By Natalie Bina: You can't say 'Oh my stars.' 'Oh my stars' is not a thing, and it
I pushed the process forward by saying, 'We should do this, this, and this right now. Please find the budget for me to find a structural engineer, a mechanical engineer, a civil engineer, so we can do the preliminary work.'Michael Arad Saying No At Work Sayings By Michael Arad: I pushed the process forward by saying, 'We should do this, this, and this right
I don't mean to be like some old guy from the olden days who says, "I walked thirty miles to school every morning, so you kids should too." That's a statement born of envy and resentment. What I'm saying is something quite different. What I'm saying is that by having very little, I had it good. Children need a sense of pulling their own weight, of contributing to the family in some way, and some sense of the family's interdependence. They take pride in knowing that they're contributing. They learn responsibility and discipline through meaningful work. The values developed within a family that operates on those principles then extend to the society at large. By not being quite so indulged and "protected" from reality by overflowing abundance, children see the bonds that connect them to others.Sidney Poitier Saying No At Work Sayings By Sidney Poitier: I don't mean to be like some old guy from the olden days who says,
When I took over as chair of the fashion program, I was horrified that only the faculty member was allowed to speak in a critique. I'm talking about perfectly nurturing teachers. But the rule was there would be no call of hands for students to contribute their feedback. It was embedded in the department's culture. That was alarming to me. When I was teaching, I was the least important person in the room as far as I was concerned
my students' points of view mattered most. I wanted to learn who they were and teach them to respect one another's perspectives.
I would start off by saying something like, I am having trouble understanding how this work solves the problem at hand. Here are some things about the work that I appreciate: X, Y, Z. But I see these virtues independent of the problem we're solving.
Tim Gunn Saying No At Work Sayings By Tim Gunn: When I took over as chair of the fashion program, I was horrified that only
I come from a very rough background, and I'm saying that if you work hard and dedicate yourself that you can make it, too.Floyd Mayweather Jr. Saying No At Work Sayings By Floyd Mayweather Jr.: I come from a very rough background, and I'm saying that if you work hard
The saying "the business of art is different than the purpose of art" makes sense, and what are you going to do about that? You have some obligation to get the work out there, you believe in it enough that it should be out in the public, but of course it goes through a system that takes it pretty far away from the reasons you made them.Eric Fischl Saying No At Work Sayings By Eric Fischl: The saying "the business of art is different than the purpose of art" makes sense,
Writing is easy. Saying something that would make a difference is the task.Aleksandra Ninkovic Saying No At Work Sayings By Aleksandra Ninkovic: Writing is easy. Saying something that would make a difference is the task.
Imagine saying to someone, "I have a kidney problem, and I'm having a lot of bad days lately." Nothing but sympathy, right? "What's wrong?" "My mom had that!" "Text me a pic of the ultrasound!" Then pretend to say, "I have severe depression and anxiety, and I'm having a lot of bad days lately." They just look at you like you're broken, right? Unfixable. Inherently flawed. Maybe not someone they want to hang around as much? Yeah, society sucks. My mental problems made me feel ashamed. I felt like I had to hide them until I could "work through it" on my own. Which I never did, because I didn't know how. And I didn't feel brave enough to make fixing my mind a priority because I didn't think anyone would understand.Felicia Day Saying No At Work Sayings By Felicia Day: Imagine saying to someone, "I have a kidney problem, and I'm having a lot of
Ethan: "Abstaining definitely doesn't work."
Beth: "what do you suggest?"
Ethan: "We're obviously going to have to make love often, but keep the encounters from getting too intense." He sounded perfectly serious, like he really believed what he was saying.
Lucy Monroe Saying No At Work Sayings By Lucy Monroe: Ethan: "Abstaining definitely doesn't work."Beth: "what do you suggest?"Ethan: "We're obviously going to have to
I get 100 e-mails a day from Americans who say, 'What you're doing is cool - can we work for you?' From Germans, I also get 100 e-mails a day, saying, 'You fat pig!' or 'You're a liar and a criminal!' I'm trying to change this.Kim Dotcom Saying No At Work Sayings By Kim Dotcom: I get 100 e-mails a day from Americans who say, 'What you're doing is cool
Yes is the answer to that question. I've enjoyed being in government ... if it would be useful for me to serve I would like to do that. [saying he would like to work for Gordon Brown despite his previous opinions of him!]Charles Clarke Saying No At Work Sayings By Charles Clarke: Yes is the answer to that question. I've enjoyed being in government ... if it
People confuse the word cynicism with the word skepticism. One is "you're not gonna pay attention to anything, think everything's screwed up, nothing's ever gonna work out right", that's cynicism. But skepticism is, "you're presented with evidence and you do your best to draw conclusions based on that". So, as the saying goes, Bill Nye, do you believe in ghosts? No. However, I would love to see one. Bring it on. I'm open minded to the idea, but the more I look into it in a skeptical frame of thinking, the less likely it seems.Bill Nye Saying No At Work Sayings By Bill Nye: People confuse the word cynicism with the word skepticism. One is "you're not gonna pay
You're saying she doesn't do her work? So take care of your business! Fail her like a normal kid. The failure will be between me and my daughter, then. You won't like it if her failure is between me and you.Esme Raji Codell Saying No At Work Sayings By Esme Raji Codell: You're saying she doesn't do her work? So take care of your business! Fail her
We have to build movements in the face of trade retaliation on the basis of people's democratic rights, on the basis of an ancient heritage of collective innovation. We work from the grassroots all the way to the national government and the World Trade Organization. It basically means being very multidimensional in our campaigns. And that is where part of the fun is. It involves both resistance and creativity. It involves constructive action, while at the same time saying "no."Vandana Shiva Saying No At Work Sayings By Vandana Shiva: We have to build movements in the face of trade retaliation on the basis of
I had no idea the amount of people who even knew who I was. Suddenly, they were coming up and saying, "You're my favorite artist." Very surreal. After years of trying to get work, and then coming here and being able to meet some of the fans of Array.Eric Wight Saying No At Work Sayings By Eric Wight: I had no idea the amount of people who even knew who I was. Suddenly,
To be quite honest, along with thinking and such when it comes to writing, I'm not into words like "theory." I'm a PhD dropout. No matter how many twenty-five-page papers I wrote, I never felt like I was saying much. I didn't feel like the writer of the book, whose work I was analyzing, would have been impressed. It didn't matter how much time or effort I put in.Mary J. Miller Saying No At Work Sayings By Mary J. Miller: To be quite honest, along with thinking and such when it comes to writing, I'm
What is the matter with you?" asked Shcherbatsky.
"Nothing much, but there is little to be happy about in this world."
"Little? You'd better come with me to Paris instead of going to some Mulhausen or other. You'll see how jolly it will be!"
"No, I have done with that; it is time for me to die."
"That is a fine thing!" said Shcherbatsky, laughing. "I am only just beginning to live."
"Yes, I thought so too till lately; but now I know that I shall soon die."
Levin was saying what of late he had really been thinking. He saw death and the apprroach of death in everything; but the work he had begun interested him all the more. After all, he had to live his life somehow, til death came. Everything for him was wrapped in darkness; but just because of the darkness, feeling his work to be the only thread to guide him through the darkness, he seized upon it and clung to it with all his might.
Leo Tolstoy Saying No At Work Sayings By Leo Tolstoy: What is the matter with you?" asked Shcherbatsky."Nothing much, but there is little to be
I don't trust American intelligence. You look at the torture report from the Senate: People inside the CIA are saying that it doesn't work, and we're getting the information not from torture, but simply from questioning people.Robert Baer Saying No At Work Sayings By Robert Baer: I don't trust American intelligence. You look at the torture report from the Senate: People
Winckelmann wished to live with a work of art as a friend. The saying is true of pen and pencil. Fresh lustre shoots from Lycidas in a twentieth perusal. The portraits of Clarendon are mellowed by every year of reflection.Robert Aris Willmott Saying No At Work Sayings By Robert Aris Willmott: Winckelmann wished to live with a work of art as a friend. The saying is
Advertising agencies come to you and they are great fans, they are great creative people themselves, but they ask you to do something, and you say, "Well, we will, we'll create something together." And it is work. It's like you're doing something and they're saying, "Change this" and "Change that." It's not hard, horrible work, but creatively it's not just freedom.Wayne Coyne Saying No At Work Sayings By Wayne Coyne: Advertising agencies come to you and they are great fans, they are great creative people
Everybody - even huge movie stars - have downs. That's just how it is. The work ebbs and flows. My manager and I were saying, 'Let's remember that in 2013 we were soooo busy.' So whenever it is that we're not, maybe it'll come back again. Maybe it won't. But you've gotta love the ride.Betsy Brandt Saying No At Work Sayings By Betsy Brandt: Everybody - even huge movie stars - have downs. That's just how it is. The
Recondition your reactions to dominant people. Try to visualize yourself behaving in a firm manner, armed with well-prepared facts and evidence. Practice saying things like "Hold on a minute - I need to consider what you have just said." Also practice saying "I'm not sure about that. It's too important to make a snap decision now." Don't cave in for fear that someone might shout at you or have a tantrum. Have faith that your own abilities will work if you use them. Non-assertive people are often extremely strong in areas of process, detail, dependability, reliability, and working cooperatively with others. These capabilities all have the potential to undo a dominating personality who has no proper justification. Recognize your strengths and use them to defend and support your position.Dale Carnegie Saying No At Work Sayings By Dale Carnegie: Recondition your reactions to dominant people. Try to visualize yourself behaving in a firm manner,
Every faithful parent must give their children guidance, direction, rules, and commands. What we are saying is that these things are not to be the primary theme of our teaching. The primary theme is to be Jesus Christ and the work he's already done.Elyse M. Fitzpatrick Saying No At Work Sayings By Elyse M. Fitzpatrick: Every faithful parent must give their children guidance, direction, rules, and commands. What we are
Flying visits don't work,' Tom said as we drove home, 'not for a place you've really loved.' I don't think he expected us to be back and around much, and maybe this was his way of saying he'd understand that too.Ian Walthew Saying No At Work Sayings By Ian Walthew: Flying visits don't work,' Tom said as we drove home, 'not for a place you've
When I was creating my Luxhair Now wig line, I was listening to what my fans were saying online because I wanted to make something that the average woman could wear to work.Sherri Shepherd Saying No At Work Sayings By Sherri Shepherd: When I was creating my Luxhair Now wig line, I was listening to what my
I think empirically the reason people might think that wouldn't work is they are going to ask, how could anybody ever agree on having a fair judge? They would always just want the judge that was going to be sympathetic to their perspective. But we just see that's not true. Empirically it does work. There is private arbitration. Companies, when they have disputes with their employees and so forth, and they have clauses in the contracts saying "private arbitration," they go to these people. It's not like there are widespread allegations of unfairness. If there is a market for arbitration services, the way you stay in business is by having a reputation of doing a fair job of it.Anonymous Saying No At Work Sayings By Anonymous: I think empirically the reason people might think that wouldn't work is they are going
I understand now that all those antique essays and stories with which I was to compare my own work were not magnificent for their datedness or foreignness, but for saying precisely what their authors meant them to say. My teachers wished me to write accurately, always selecting the most effective words, and relating the words to one another unambiguously, rigidly, like parts of a machine. The teachers did not want to turn me into an Englishman after all. They hoped that I would become understandable - and therefore understood.Kurt Vonnegut Saying No At Work Sayings By Kurt Vonnegut: I understand now that all those antique essays and stories with which I was to
When crime drops dramatically in New York for no apparent reason, or when a movie made on a shoestring budget ends up making hundreds of millions of dollars - we're surprised. I'm saying, don't be surprised. This is the way social epidemics work.Malcolm Gladwell Saying No At Work Sayings By Malcolm Gladwell: When crime drops dramatically in New York for no apparent reason, or when a movie
*I'm hustling* is a low self-esteem having man's way of saying *I'm unemployed,* when answering a seemingly materialistic woman's question as to what he does for a living.Mokokoma Mokhonoana Saying No At Work Sayings By Mokokoma Mokhonoana: *I'm hustling* is a low self-esteem having man's way of saying *I'm unemployed,* when answering
There's an old saying: that which doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.J-Ax Saying No At Work Sayings By J-Ax: There's an old saying: that which doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I don't believe
When you're not gaping at Megan Fox enough to listen to what the director's saying, you can get some work done.Peter Jacobson Saying No At Work Sayings By Peter Jacobson: When you're not gaping at Megan Fox enough to listen to what the director's saying,
A hero is someone who rebels or seems to rebel against the facts of existence and seems to conquer them. Obviously that can only work at moments. It can't be a lasting thing. That's not saying that people shouldn't keep trying to rebel against the facts of existence. Someday, who knows, we might conquer death, disease and war.Jim Morrison Saying No At Work Sayings By Jim Morrison: A hero is someone who rebels or seems to rebel against the facts of existence
An intellectual is usually someone who isn't exactly distinguished by his intellect," Corelli asserted. "he claims that label to compensate for his inadequacies. It's as old as that saying : "Tell me what you boast of and I'll tell you what you lack. Our daily bread. The incompetent always present themselves as experts, the cruel as pious, sinners as devout, usurers as benefactors, the small-minded as patriots, the arrogant as humble, the vulgar as elegant, and the feeble-minded as intellectual. Once again, it's all the work of nature. Far from being the sylph to whom poets sing, nature is a cruel, voracious mother who needs to feed on the creatures she gives birth to in order to stay alive.Carlos Ruiz Zafon Saying No At Work Sayings By Carlos Ruiz Zafon: An intellectual is usually someone who isn't exactly distinguished by his intellect," Corelli asserted. "he
My purpose in life always has been to avoid work. And I hear these people saying, "I work hard and I pay my taxes." Well, you're an asshole.Malachy McCourt Saying No At Work Sayings By Malachy McCourt: My purpose in life always has been to avoid work. And I hear these people
And so whether it's failing to move forward on the Dream Act, failing to move forward on putting teachers back to work, failing to do all the things we could do right now to help the economy and middle class, this Congress is just saying no.David Plouffe Saying No At Work Sayings By David Plouffe: And so whether it's failing to move forward on the Dream Act, failing to move
True Prayer is the work of relationship, where He moves them from mere information about Him to a one-on-one experience with Him, so that now when they talk about "knowing God," they mean more than, "I understand what you're saying about God," but also, "It fits my experience of Him.Geoffrey Wood Saying No At Work Sayings By Geoffrey Wood: True Prayer is the work of relationship, where He moves them from mere information about
In a way, composing on the melodic level is an expression of a melodic truth, almost like a geometric truth. If it has clarity, other people will recognize it. There's no way of isolating it in a gallery on a white wall and saying, "This is a work of art. This is a mathematical proof."Eyvind Kang Saying No At Work Sayings By Eyvind Kang: In a way, composing on the melodic level is an expression of a melodic truth,
The artist's transcendence is achieved through success at diagnosing and naming the maladies of the age. Artists tell a different sort of truth than scientists do. The truth of the scientist is a generalizing truth, while the artist or writer's is a particular truth. It is the truth about particular persons in particular situations. The poet or the novelist reveals truths about human lives by embodying these truths in concrete characters, in specific situations. Readers recognize their own reality in the work. We find ourselves saying, as we read, 'Yes! This is how it is for me.' Both those who enjoy the work of artists and the artists themselves achieve transcendence through this identification of the particular truths about selves in the world.David LaRocca Saying No At Work Sayings By David LaRocca: The artist's transcendence is achieved through success at diagnosing and naming the maladies of the
Shortly after I began work with Teresa, I acquired another MPD client, a supposedly schizophrenic young man I will call Tony. He called in to the clinic on a day I was on telephone duty, saying he was having flashbacks of "ritual abuse." I did not yet know what that was. Tony became my client. He could be quite entertaining. I have a vivid memory of him as a three-year-old, "Tiny Tony," standing on his head on my office couch, and running down the hall to try unsuccessfully to make it to the bathroom. He had in his head the entire rock band of Guns'n'Roses, and I got to know Axl, the band leader, quite well. I remember the time Tony was in hospital and I went to visit him; Axl popped out and said, "Remember, we're schizophrenic in here!Alison Miller Saying No At Work Sayings By Alison Miller: Shortly after I began work with Teresa, I acquired another MPD client, a supposedly schizophrenic
Everyone makes sacrifices for their job; the movie's not saying that you don't have to work hard. The movie is saying that if you're going to work hard, then make it worth it, believe in what you're doing.Anne Hathaway Saying No At Work Sayings By Anne Hathaway: Everyone makes sacrifices for their job; the movie's not saying that you don't have to
People who say that life is not worthwhile are really saying that they themselves have no personal goals which are worthwhile. Get yourself a goal worth working for. Better still, get yourself a project. Always have something ahead of you to look forward to ... to work for and hope for.Maxwell Maltz Saying No At Work Sayings By Maxwell Maltz: People who say that life is not worthwhile are really saying that they themselves have
Neil [Simon] was considered our greatest [living playwright] at the time [of their marriage]. Maybe he still is; I don't know. But anyway, he was hugely successful, and I just kind of got folded into that. And in some ways, he protected me, but in other ways, I wasn't fully able to step out, you know? He didn't want me to go away so much. The work that we did together was great, and I don't regret it, but what I am saying is that I didn't get an opportunity to explore some other areas that were offered to me early on. I took what I might call a U-turn.Marsha Mason Saying No At Work Sayings By Marsha Mason: Neil [Simon] was considered our greatest [living playwright] at the time [of their marriage]. Maybe
Them smile. One read: Having Cheese Makes You Happy. Sometimes Hem and Haw would take their friends by to see their pile of Cheese at Cheese Station C, and point to it with pride, saying, "Pretty nice Cheese, huh?" Sometimes they shared it with their friends and sometimes they didn't. "We deserve this Cheese," Hem said. "We certainly had to work long and hard enough to find it." He picked up a nice fresh piece and ate it. Afterward, Hem fell asleep, as he often did. Every night the Littlepeople would waddle home, full of Cheese, and every morning they would confidently return for more. This went on for quite some time. After a while Hem's and Haw's confidence grew into the arrogance of success. Soon they became so comfortable they didn't even notice what was happening. AsSpencer Johnson Saying No At Work Sayings By Spencer Johnson: Them smile. One read: Having Cheese Makes You Happy. Sometimes Hem and Haw would take
A top McCain policy adviser claimed this week that McCain's work in the Senate helped create the BlackBerry, saying, 'You're looking at the miracle that John McCain helped create.' He then handed the BlackBerry to McCain, who attempted to withdraw $20 from it.Amy Poehler Saying No At Work Sayings By Amy Poehler: A top McCain policy adviser claimed this week that McCain's work in the Senate helped
And everyone is always saying that marriage is really hard and takes a lot of work. But the thing is, when you know that you love someone, those things don't matter. You have to push all the everyday things and the outside world away, and just enjoy knowing that this is the man who has the chest your head is meant to lie on.Erin McCarthy Saying No At Work Sayings By Erin McCarthy: And everyone is always saying that marriage is really hard and takes a lot of
Saying I was lucky negates the hard work I put in and spits on that guy who's freezing his ass off back in Brooklyn.Peter Dinklage Saying No At Work Sayings By Peter Dinklage: Saying I was lucky negates the hard work I put in and spits on that
One cannot be an American by going about saying that one is an American. It is necessary to feel America, like America, love America and then work.Georgia O'Keeffe Saying No At Work Sayings By Georgia O'Keeffe: One cannot be an American by going about saying that one is an American. It
Don't ever let them tell you that you're too stupid to do something. I'm not saying it's going to be easy for you, the way it was for you mom. Maybe you're going to have to work for it a little harder than other people, which I know isn't fair. But that doesn't mean you should just give up. Because if you do that, then where will you be?Meg Cabot Saying No At Work Sayings By Meg Cabot: Don't ever let them tell you that you're too stupid to do something. I'm not
Some people get certainty by working harder and saying I'm going to master something. Some people get certainty by lowering their expectations, going 'it will never work. And they lose their dreams, but they get their needs. The needs are not like goals. They're not like belief systems that are built into you.Tony Robbins Saying No At Work Sayings By Tony Robbins: Some people get certainty by working harder and saying I'm going to master something.

What I'm not saying is that all government spending is bad. It's not - far, far from it, but there is no free lunch, as a former colleague of mine used to say. There is no public tooth fairy. Father Christmas does not work on the Treasury staff this year. You can never bail someone out of trouble without putting someone else into trouble.Arthur Laffer Saying No At Work Sayings By Arthur Laffer: What I'm not saying is that all government spending is bad. It's not - far,
In England we have this saying about Marmite: people either love it or hate it. That's like a lot of the movie work I've done. People either find it repulsive or find it really interesting and get engaged in it.Eddie Redmayne Saying No At Work Sayings By Eddie Redmayne: In England we have this saying about Marmite: people either love it or hate it.
was thinking - um, maybe you should let me do the talking." He glanced over at her. "What are you saying? That I'm scary?" "You're the scariest person I've ever met." "Thank you," he said with a wicked smile. "That's the nicest thing anyone has said to me in a long time." "No, really. You're scarier than Frankenstein." He chuckled. "You're so scary that a great white shark would put on tennis shoes and run up the beach to get away from you." His chuckle turned into a laugh. "I mean it," she said, getting into the spirit of it. "If the boogey man was in your closet, he'd stay there until you left for work." "Okay, okay," he said, holding up one hand while trying to stop laughing. "I got it. When we find the girl, you can do the talking." She nodded thoughtfully. "Yeah, that's probably a good idea.Arthur Bradley Saying No At Work Sayings By Arthur Bradley: was thinking - um, maybe you should let me do the talking." He glanced over
We can put it this way: the man who has faith is the man who is no longer looking at himself and no longer looking to himself. He no longer looks at anything he once was. He does not look at what he is now. He does not even look at what he hopes to be as the result of his own efforts. He looks entirely to the Lord Jesus Christ and His finished work, and rests on that alone. He has ceased to say, "Ah yes, I used to commit terrible sins but I have done this and that." He stops saying that. If he goes on saying that, he has not got faith. Faith speaks in an entirely different manner and makes a man say, "Yes I have sinned grievously, I have lived a life of sin, yet I know that I am a child of God because I am not resting on any righteousness of my own; my righteousness is in Jesus Christ and God has put that to my account.D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones Saying No At Work Sayings By D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones: We can put it this way: the man who has faith is the man who
I do say no to lots of things, actually! I know it doesn't look like it. But I have a tendency to a) be rubbish at saying no, and b) be pushed by some kind of Protestant work ethic.Jo Brand Saying No At Work Sayings By Jo Brand: I do say no to lots of things, actually! I know it doesn't look like
But the biggest clue seemed to be their expressions. They were hard to explain. Good-natured, friendly, easygoing ... and uninvolved. They were like spectators. You had the feeling they had just wandered in there themselves and somebody had handed them a wrench. There was no identification with the job. No saying, "I am a mechanic." At 5 P.M. or whenever their eight hours were in, you knew they would cut it off and not have another thought about their work. They were already trying not to have any thoughts about their work on the job.Robert M. Pirsig Saying No At Work Sayings By Robert M. Pirsig: But the biggest clue seemed to be their expressions. They were hard to explain. Good-natured,
It's not the easiest thing in the world to act with Harry - we are very close. I'm not saying it won't ever happen again but it's best to work with other people. There are no professional boundaries at which to stop when you act with a sibling.Luke Treadaway Saying No At Work Sayings By Luke Treadaway: It's not the easiest thing in the world to act with Harry - we are
There's a very mean girl down the hall who's trying to get me fired. I'm no good with confrontation, so whenever I say, "Have a wonderful day," to her out loud, I'm really saying, "Be nice to me or I will stab you in the face with a fork," in my head. I wish her a wonderful day at least once an hour. She's starting to get paranoid and jumpy about it, but there's really nothing she can do, because she can't complain about me wishing her a wonderful day without sounding totally insane. This is why you should never mess with nonconfrontational people. Because they're too unstable to second-guess. And because they're totally the kind of people who could suddenly snap, and stab you in the face with a fork.Jenny Lawson Saying No At Work Sayings By Jenny Lawson: There's a very mean girl down the hall who's trying to get me fired. I'm
I think a person who takes a job in order to live - that is to say, for the money - has turned himself into a slave. Work begins when you don't like what you're doing. There's a wise saying: make your hobby your source of income. Then there's no such thing as work, and there's no such thing as getting tired. That's been my own experience. I did just what I wanted to do. It takes a little courage at first, because who the hell wants you to do just what you want to do; they've all got lots of plans for you. But you can make it happen.Joseph Campbell Saying No At Work Sayings By Joseph Campbell: I think a person who takes a job in order to live - that is
It's like, it's like I have a different heart. The other girls have one kind of heart, and I have a different kind." My mom was understandably confused. "Are you saying they're mean?" "No . . . I don't know." Saying other kids were mean felt like I was saying I was more kind, which definitely wasn't it - more anxious maybe, more sensitive. I guess all I was feeling was that I was different. Sometimes I'll be at work or a party and get that same feeling. I am not like these people. I don't know what I'm doing here. And it comforts me to know that I felt that way as a child, too. Maybe that should make me feel worse, but it makes me calm and resolved. I've been prepared to be an outsider most of my life.Anna Kendrick Saying No At Work Sayings By Anna Kendrick: It's like, it's like I have a different heart. The other girls have one kind
Women should feel more liberated to say you know what? I can't bake the cookies for the school bake sale because I just don't have the time. Or I'm really sorry, but I can't do this at work because I've got too much else going on this week. We have to be more up front in saying no, for lack of a better word, and then modeling that for others.Debora Spar Saying No At Work Sayings By Debora Spar: Women should feel more liberated to say you know what? I can't bake the cookies
I remember George Mitchell - I was doing the Clarence Thomas hearing, and there were 48 senators declared they were not prepared to vote for him at the front end. We could have filibustered that and stopped it. George and I - George was the leader at the time - took the heat from every liberal group saying, "No, no, that's not the way the system is supposed to work, since the Constitution - the president shall propose and the Constitution shall dispose, we're going to let them hear this."Joe Biden Saying No At Work Sayings By Joe Biden: I remember George Mitchell - I was doing the Clarence Thomas hearing, and there were
It made the sheer incompetence of my colleagues at the research creamery in Anand even more intolerable to me. I could see that they had no interest in doing anything, not even the most elementary of jobs. They employed twenty people to run two small roller-dryers when in any other country twenty such roller-dryers were run by one man. I was the new dairy engineer to the Government of India Research Creamery and I realised very soon that I had no work at all. My frustration at this deadening job began rising and I started to write to the Ministry of Agriculture in Delhi every month, submitting my resignation, saying that I was drawing a salary of Rs 350 for doing no work and instead of wasting government money I should be allowed to go. After some eight months of this they must have felt that I was becoming a nuisance and they finally wrote back accepting my resignation.Verghese Kurien Saying No At Work Sayings By Verghese Kurien: It made the sheer incompetence of my colleagues at the research creamery in Anand even
No. You can't work your way into heaven. Anytime you try and justify yourself with works, you disqualify yourself with works. What I do here, every day, for the rest of my life, is only my way of saying, 'Lord, regardless of what eternity holds for me, let me give something back to you. I know it doesn't even no scorecard. But let me make something of my life before I go.. and then, Lord, I'm at your mercy.Mitch Albom Saying No At Work Sayings By Mitch Albom: No. You can't work your way into heaven.

Only by remembering to say 'no' will the women of 21st century regain their voice and remember their power. 'No' is the most important word in a woman's dialectic arsenal, and it is the one word that our employers, our leaders, and quite often, the men in our lives would do anything to prevent us from saying. No, we will not serve. No, we will not settle for the dirty work, the low-paid work, the unpaid work. No, we will not stay late at the office, look after the kids, sort out the shopping. We refuse to fit the enormity of our passion, our creativity, and our potential into the rigid physical prison laid down for us since we were small children. No. We refuse. We will not buy your clothes and shoes and surgical solutions. No, we will not be beautiful; we will not be good. Most of all, we refuse to be beautiful and good.Laurie Penny Saying No At Work Sayings By Laurie Penny: Only by remembering to say 'no' will the women of 21st century regain their voice
Early as it was, every one had breakfasted, and my basin of bread and milk was put on the oven-top to await my coming down. Every one was gone about their work. The first to come into the house-place was Phillis with a basket of eggs. Faithful to my resolution, I asked -
"What are those?"
She looked at me for a moment, and then said gravely -
"Potatoes!"
"No! they are not," said I. "They are eggs. What do you mean by saying they are potatoes?"
"What do you mean by asking me what they were, when they are plain to be seen?" retorted she.
We were both getting a little angry with each other.

He wants to say, because Anne is not a carnal being, she is a calculating being, with a cold slick brain at work behind her hungry black eyes. I believe any woman who can say no to the King of England and keep on saying it, has the wit to say no to any number of men, including you, including Harry Percy, including anyone else she may choose to torment for her own sport while she is arranging her career in the way it suits her. So I think, yes, you've been made into a fool, but not quite in the way you thought.Hilary Mantel Saying No At Work Sayings By Hilary Mantel: He wants to say, because Anne is not a carnal being, she is a calculating
How about when I get to work, I have a new chair at my desk with a note attached saying," Your new chair, if you break it you buy the next one." AHMM no an email will be going out saying "If it breaks, replace it with the old one, there was nothing wrong with it.James Jones Saying No At Work Sayings By James Jones: How about when I get to work, I have a new chair at my desk
Being smart young men, they say to themselves, "I want to get married, have a family, and I understand my wife wants to work too. Do you, Vicki, know how to help us do that?" Because they're no longer looking at that prospective wife, saying, "Well this is wonderful, you're getting educated, but of course as soon as we get married, you're going to stay home and make babies."Vicki Donlan Saying No At Work Sayings By Vicki Donlan: Being smart young men, they say to themselves, "I want to get married, have a
I always laugh at these companies that have these rules saying, 'You're only allowed to have this or that on your desk.'

Then let us put a speech into the mouths of our opponents. They will say: 'Socrates and Glaucon, no adversary need convict you, for you yourselves, at the first foundation of the State, admitted the principle that everybody was to do the one work suited to his own nature.' And certainly, if I am not mistaken, such an admission was made by us. 'And do not the natures of men and women differ very much indeed?' And we shall reply: Of course they do. Then we shall be asked, 'Whether the tasks assigned to men and to women should not be different, and such as are agreeable to their different natures?' Certainly they should. 'But if so, have you not fallen into a serious inconsistency in saying that men and women, whose natures are so entirely different, ought to perform the same actions?' - What defence will you make for us, my good Sir, against any one who offers these objections? ThatPlato Saying No At Work Sayings By Plato: Then let us put a speech into the mouths of our opponents. They will say:
There is nothing supernatural. There are only the things in this world that we understand, the things that we don't understand, and made up crap." The last part of that saying was always the best bit. "Pray at the alter of each of these things, my darlings." She would be smirking by then." They all work in their own way.Jamie Mason Saying No At Work Sayings By Jamie Mason: There is nothing supernatural. There are only the things in this world that we understand,
Michael Jackson was extraordinary, When we worked together on 'Bad,' I was in awe of his absolute mastery of movement on the one hand, and of the music on the other. Every step he took was absolutely precise and fluid at the same time. It was like watching quicksilver in motion. He was wonderful to work with, an absolute professional at all times, and it really goes without saying ... a true artist. It will be a while before I can get used to the idea that he's no longer with us.Martin Scorsese Saying No At Work Sayings By Martin Scorsese: Michael Jackson was extraordinary, When we worked together on 'Bad,' I was in awe of
If you have people who treat you badly in your life, they will be a human shield against people who will treat you well. If that's not true then we should apply it to marriage and start saying to woman who are being put down or beaten, "you gotta stay with him because he needs you and he has been your husband for 20 years for heaven sakes. You just have to work to love him more and so on." This is the advice they gave to woman like 200 fucking years ago and it was abusive advice.
I view the parent child relationship (This just not my made up perspective.) it is the least voluntary relationship. At least the woman who got married chose to get married. We don't choose our parents. The highest standards of behavior are required for parents and no one else. There is no one else whose standards of behavior need be higher than parents and so often parents get away with the lowest possible standards of behavior with regards to their children.
