Kissinger warned about the dangers of dealing with the Soviet Union precisely at the moment that Reagan was able to achieve real accomplishments with Gorbachev. In later years he would move closer to the neocons, ultimately becoming a prominent supporter of the Iraq war - another sign of Kissinger's almost infallible ability to get it wrong.Jacob Heilbrunn Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Jacob Heilbrunn: Kissinger warned about the dangers of dealing with the Soviet Union precisely at the moment
I didn't realize it at the time, but suppressing my emotions wasn't a sign of strength, it was a sign of weakness. I feared my own emotions, and I blocked them out, how tough could that really be? To tackle them head on, that was the real challenge. Once I understood that I didn't need to resist my emotions, that's when things changed; once I understood that resisting them wasn't controlling them, no matter how hard I tried.Jeffrey Sands Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Jeffrey Sands: I didn't realize it at the time, but suppressing my emotions wasn't a sign of
Alas," said Zee, "this predominance of the few over the many is the surest and most fatal sign of a race incorrigibly savage. See you not that the primary condition of mortal happiness consists in the extinction of that strife and competition between individuals, which, no matter what forms of government they adopt, render the many subordinate to the few, destroy real liberty to the individual, whatever may be the nominal liberty of the state, and annul that calm of existence, without which, felicity, mental or bodily, cannot be attained?Edward Bulwer-Lytton Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Edward Bulwer-Lytton: Alas," said Zee, "this predominance of the few over the many is the surest and
I didn't have any real art training, but when I was about twelve nad thirteen, another boy and I went to a sign painter's house every Friday night and took lessons.Rube Goldberg Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Rube Goldberg: I didn't have any real art training, but when I was about twelve nad thirteen,
The dollar sign is the only sign in which the modern man appears to have any real faith.Helen Rowland Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Helen Rowland: The dollar sign is the only sign in which the modern man appears to have
An honorable leader must demonstrate a willingness to reveal his or her 'inner self' to their team. It builds trust and trust is essential. It's also a sign of strength and authenticity, and people are attracted to those who are 'real' and authentic.Lee Ellis Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Lee Ellis: An honorable leader must demonstrate a willingness to reveal his or her 'inner self' to
The office Halloween party was at the Royalton last week and I went as a mass murderer, complete with a sign painted on my back that read MASS MURDERER (which was decidedly lighter than the sandwich board I had constructed earlier that day that read DRILLER KILLER), and beneath those two words I had written in blood Yep, that's me and the suit was also covered with blood, some of it fake, most of it real. In one fist I clenched a hank of Victoria Bell's hair, and pinned next to my boutonniere (a small white rose) was a finger bone I'd boiled the flesh off of. As elaborate as my costume was, Craig McDermott still managed to win first place in the competition. He came as Ivan Boesky, which I thought was unfair since a lot of people thought I'd gone as Michael Milken last year. The Patty Winters Show this morning was about Home Abortion Kits.Bret Easton Ellis Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Bret Easton Ellis: The office Halloween party was at the Royalton last week and I went as a
Maybe I am losing it. They say a big sign of mental illness is not knowing you have it. But isn't it real insanity to go through the world ignoring people in front of you? All your friends were strangers before they became friends. I sneak glances at the darling strangers on the subway.Dakota Lane Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Dakota Lane: Maybe I am losing it. They say a big sign of mental illness is not
Borges's extreme architecture attempts to visualize the universe by assigning to every object real and unreal, now and yet to come, a code or sign, a corresponding figure within the Library. It seeks to render totality visible, to effect a total visibility and visuality. The Library of Babel is a view of the universe inside and out, an X-ray of the universe and universal X-ray, seen from within and without. It is a representation of everywhere: a perfect duplication of the universe. And of you: universal. An endless and eternal cinema, an imaginary archive that extends into the universe until it is indistinguishable from it, until you are indistinguishable from the universe.Akira Mizuta Lippit Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Akira Mizuta Lippit: Borges's extreme architecture attempts to visualize the universe by assigning to every object real and
Writing a novel is a very hard thing to do because it covers so long a space of time, and if you get discouraged it is not a bad sign, but a good one. If you think you are not doing it well, you are thinking the way real novelists do. I never knew one who did not feel greatly discouraged at times, and some get desperate, and I have always found that to be a good symptom.Maxwell Perkins Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Maxwell Perkins: Writing a novel is a very hard thing to do because it covers so long
All real estate agents should be put on a decommissioned naval frigate which is then towed out into the deepest part of the Atlantic and sunk. It's rather unfortunate that, in recent years, real estate agents have become comedy betes-noires. Rather like lawyers or used car salesmen. Every time they mention their job they probably get people amusingly making the sign of the cross at them or are subjected to some good-natured, humorous ribbing. This has the effect of distorting what I'm trying to say here, which isn't in the nature of a smiling roll of the eyes and a "Tsk, real estate agents, eh?" but rather "All real estate agents should be put on a decommissioned naval frigate which is then towed out into the deepest part of the Atlantic and sunk.Mil Millington Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Mil Millington: All real estate agents should be put on a decommissioned naval frigate which is then
I have no apartment and no job. I have no steady relationship or even a city to call home. I have no idea what I want to be doing with my life, no idea what my purpose is, and no real sign of a life goal. And yet time has found me. The years I've spent dilly-dallying around at different jobs in different cities show on my face.Taylor Jenkins Reid Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Taylor Jenkins Reid: I have no apartment and no job. I have no steady relationship or even a
Consistency, say some, is the sign of a small mind, but it's a real virtue with high-power technology. Having lots of the same devices out in the field lets us compile a record of experience.James R. Chiles Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By James R. Chiles: Consistency, say some, is the sign of a small mind, but it's a real virtue
You fight them, his father had said.
You don't trust them. His father had been right. And his father had been ready. Rabatians were cowards and deceivers, they should have scattered when their duplicitous attack met the full force of the Akielon army. But for some reason they hadn't fallen at the first sign of a real fight, they had stood firm, and shown metal, and, for hour upon hour, they had fought, until the Akielon lines had begun to slip and falter.
And their general wasn't the king, it was the twenty-five year old prince, holding the field.
Father, I can take him, he'd said.
Then go, his father had said, and bring
us back victory.
C.S. Pacat Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By C.S. Pacat: You fight them, his father had said. You don't trust them. His father had been
My granddad wanted to become a sign painter and designer, but was stopped; my dad would have had a real talent for language, but was stopped. When I expressed a desire to become a graphic designer, I was not stopped.Stefan Sagmeister Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Stefan Sagmeister: My granddad wanted to become a sign painter and designer, but was stopped; my dad
There was something about the possession of a book that was important to me. Owning it gave me proprietary rights on the story. It meant that I could read as quickly or as slowly as I liked. No expectations, no deadlines, no proscriptions on bent spines or crumpled pages. I was not gentle on my books. I read while I ate, I read in the bathtub. At night, I rolled over on top of my books that had fallen between the covers as I dozed. For me, the worn pages and tattered covers were a sign of devotion. Like the Velveteen Rabbit, the books I read were only real when they were loved. And I understood that love was not always gentle.Georgia Bell Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Georgia Bell: There was something about the possession of a book that was important to me. Owning
Dave Guy, the trumpet player, is an incredible musician. He came into the studio one day, and they had just cut a cover of "Sign, Seal, Deliver" for something with Sharon Jones, and I just was blown away by how they got that sonic. I mean, it was just so much the real deal.Mark Ronson Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Mark Ronson: Dave Guy, the trumpet player, is an incredible musician. He came into the studio one
What is going on inside me I cannot tell. In the sky a thousand stars are magnetized, and I lie glued by the swing of the planet to the sand. A different weight brings me back to myself. I feel the weight of my body drawing me towards so many things. My dreams are more real than these dunes, than that moon, than these presences. My civilization is an empire more imperious than this empire. The marvel of a house is not that it shelters or warms a man, nor that its walls belong to him. It is that it leaves its trace on the language. Let it remain a sign. Let it form, deep in the heart, that obscure range from which, as waters from a spring, are born our dreams.Antoine De Saint-Exupery Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Antoine De Saint-Exupery: What is going on inside me I cannot tell. In the sky a thousand stars
I think when love sneaks up on you, when it grabs onto you when you least expect it, maybe that's more of a sign that it's real. That it's meant to be and nothing could stop the two of you from falling for each other.Nyrae Dawn Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Nyrae Dawn: I think when love sneaks up on you, when it grabs onto you when you
Nobody of any real culture, for instance, ever talks nowadays about the beauty of sunset. Sunsets are quite old fashioned. To admire them is a distinct sign of provincialism of temperament. Upon the other hand they go on.Oscar Wilde Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Oscar Wilde: Nobody of any real culture, for instance, ever talks nowadays about the beauty of sunset.
That's how real men settle their differences, through reasoned discussion and a dispassionate analysis. He farted as I reached the inner door, a sign, I decided, of his respect. AlexanderBen Aaronovitch Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Ben Aaronovitch: That's how real men settle their differences, through reasoned discussion and a dispassionate analysis. He
When you need to borrow money the Mob seems like a better deal I think. 'You don't pay me back I break both yer legs.' Is that all? You won't take my house or wreck my credit rating? Fine where do I sign. Legs? Fine. You don't even have to sign anything.Craig Ferguson Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Craig Ferguson: When you need to borrow money the Mob seems like a better deal I think.
It's definitely a dream come true to be recognized and to be able to sign autographs. But, it's also a lot of hard work and can be draining. If you don't know already, you will quickly learn who your real friends are.Christina Aguilera Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Christina Aguilera: It's definitely a dream come true to be recognized and to be able to sign
Our can-do culture has made many of us believe that we should always be self-sufficient. Somewhere along the way, we also got the message that asking for help is a sign of weakness. We often forget that we're interdependent creatures whose very existence depends on the kindness of others, including - with a bow to Tennessee Williams - strangers.Sharon Salzberg Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Sharon Salzberg: Our can-do culture has made many of us believe that we should always be self-sufficient.
So many bands write about the same s - -. It gets real boring after a while. I want to keep it fresh and sign about things like the birth of my daughter, about seeing the world- things that aren't always said in metal.Mitch Lucker Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Mitch Lucker: So many bands write about the same s - -. It gets real boring after
People say, "Age is just a number." A lot of times it's not just a number. It's actually a real and true sign of someone's maturity. But in this case, she's fantastic.Henry Cavill Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Henry Cavill: People say, "Age is just a number." A lot of times it's not just a
Our real calling to be a compassionate Christian came when we stepped out of the waters of baptism ... We don't need a bishop's assignment to be kind. We don't need to sign up to be thoughtful. We don't need to be sustained by our wards to be sensitive.Chieko N. Okazaki Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Chieko N. Okazaki: Our real calling to be a compassionate Christian came when we stepped out of the
Sometimes you know you've got a chance with a girl because she wants to fight with you. If the world wasn't so messed up, it wouldn't be like that. If the world was normal, a girl being nice to you would be a good sign, but in the real world, it isn't.Nick Hornby Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Nick Hornby: Sometimes you know you've got a chance with a girl because she wants to fight
Every revolution has its counterrevolution - that is a sign the revolution is for real.C. Wright Mills Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By C. Wright Mills: Every revolution has its counterrevolution - that is a sign the revolution is for real.
Not everyone is as honest as Freud was when he said that he cured the miseries of the neurotic only to open him up to the normal misery of life. Only angels know unrelieved joy-or are able to stand it. Yet we see the books by the mind-healers with their garish titles: "Joy!" "Awakening," and the like; we see them in person in lecture halls or in groups, beaming their particular brand of inward, confident well-being, so that it communicates its unmistakable message: we can do this for you, too, if you will only let us. I have never seen or heard them communicate the dangers of the total liberation that they claim to offer; say, to put up a small sign next to the one advertising joy, carrying some inscription like "Danger: real probability of the awakening of terror and dread, from which there is no turning back." It would be honest and would also relieve them of some of the guilt of the occasional suicide that takes place in therapy.Ernest Becker Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Ernest Becker: Not everyone is as honest as Freud was when he said that he cured the
All my life I have been the sort of person in whom people confide. And all my life I have been flattered by this role - grateful for the frisson of importance that comes with receiving important information. In recent years, however, I have noticed that my gratification is becoming diluted by a certain weary indignation. They tell me because they regard me as safe. All of them, they make their disclosures to me in the same spirit that they might tell a castrato or a priest - with a sense that I am so outside the loop, so remote from the doings of the great world, as to be defused of any possible threat. The number of secrets I receive is in inverse proportion to the number of secrets anyone expects me to have of my own. And this is the real source of my dismay. Being told secrets is not - never has been - a sign that I belong or that I matter. It is quite the opposite: confirmation of my irrelevance.Zoe Heller Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Zoe Heller: All my life I have been the sort of person in whom people confide. And
The first sign of love is when love asks nothing, [when it] gives everything. This is the real spiritual worship, the worship through love. Whether God is merciful is no longer questioned. He is God; He is my love. Whether God is omnipotent and almighty, limited or unlimited, is no longer questioned. If He distributes good, all right; if He brings evil, what does it matter? All other attributes vanish except that one-infinite love.Swami Vivekananda Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Swami Vivekananda: The first sign of love is when love asks nothing, [when it] gives everything. This
I never drew a picture of anything that was before me but always from fancy, a sure sign of the absence of artistic eyesight; and I illustrated my lack of real feeling for art by a very early speech: 'Mama,' said I, 'I have drawed a man. Shall I draw his soul now?Robert Louis Stevenson Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Robert Louis Stevenson: I never drew a picture of anything that was before me but always from fancy,
The process of putting the thing you value most in the world out for the assessment of strangers is a confidence-shaking business even in the best of times. But in Lucy's circumstances it was sheer heroism, a real sign of her devotion to her art. She was, in a sense, sitting at a craps table with her last stack of chips, trying again and again to hit it big.Ann Patchett Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Ann Patchett: The process of putting the thing you value most in the world out for the
When the design was finally locked in, Jobs called the Macintosh team together for a ceremony. "Real artists sign their work," he said. So he got out a sheet of drafting paper and a Sharpie pen and had all of them sign their names. The signatures were engraved inside each Macintosh. No one would ever see them, but the members of the team knew that their signatures were inside, just as they knew that the circuit board was laid out as elegantly as possible. Jobs called them each up by name, one at a time. Burrell Smith went first. Jobs waited until last, after all forty-five of the others. He found a place right in the center of the sheet and signed his name in lowercase letters with a grand flair. Then he toasted them with champagne. "With moments like this, he got us seeing our work as art," said Atkinson.Walter Isaacson Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Walter Isaacson: When the design was finally locked in, Jobs called the Macintosh team together for a
Whenever Ingrid and I got out of the suburbs, into Berkeley or San Francisco, and saw how other people lived, Ingrid would cry at the smallest of things- a little boy walking home by himself, a discarded cardboard sign saying HUNGRY PLEASE HELP. She would snap a picture, and by the time she lowered her camera, tears would already be falling. I always felt kind of guilty that I didn't feel as sad as she did, but now, watching Dylan, I think that's probably a good thing. I mean, you see a million terrible things every day, on the news and in the paper, and in real life. I'm not saying that it's stupid to feel sad, just that it would be impossible to let everything get to you and still get some sleep at night.Nina LaCour Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Nina LaCour: Whenever Ingrid and I got out of the suburbs, into Berkeley or San Francisco, and
The influence of the senses has, in most men, overpowered the mind to the degree that the walls of time and space have come to look real and insurmountable; and to speak with levity of these limits is, in the world, the sign of insanity. Yet, time and space are but inverse measures of the force of the soul.Ralph Waldo Emerson Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Ralph Waldo Emerson: The influence of the senses has, in most men, overpowered the mind to the degree
I couldn't help but suspect something he'd seen or encountered had changed his view of what had happened between them. It had somehow set him free. And he'd let it fly, that gorgeous blackbird of a love he'd been keeping in a cage. What was it like for him, every day standing outside in the wind and rain to stare at the ocean, yearning for some sign of her, never giving up hope? At The Peak perhaps she'd finally come into view, a ship coming neither toward him nor away, only riding that perfect line between heaven and earth, long enough for him to know that she had loved him, that what they had was real, before slipping out of sight, probably forever.Marisha Pessl Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Marisha Pessl: I couldn't help but suspect something he'd seen or encountered had changed his view of
With everybody having a Facebook and a Twitter, I feel like regular people consider themselves stars. It's a live, real-time upload of every time we buy a pair of socks, the most telling sign that we're losing our politeness. When you know everything about somebody, you can talk to them any way you please.Jeff Ross Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Jeff Ross: With everybody having a Facebook and a Twitter, I feel like regular people consider themselves
I have yet to meet the famous Rational Economic Man theorists describe. Real people have always done inexplicable things from time to time, and they show no sign of stopping.Charles S. Sanford Jr. Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Charles S. Sanford Jr.: I have yet to meet the famous Rational Economic Man theorists describe. Real people have
We got married drunk in Vegas ... We dated for a year, and we got married at a drive-through chapel in a cab. [We thought] you have to go down to the courthouse and sign papers and stuff, so who knew? We were married, and apparently now that [Rob] is getting married for real, his lawyer dug up something.Janeane Garofalo Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Janeane Garofalo: We got married drunk in Vegas ... We dated for a year, and we got
Christ deliberately hides Himself, disguises Himself, gives no physical sign of His Real Presence in the Eucharist, for a crucially important purpose: to test and elicit and strengthen our faith. If we saw miraculous signs in every Eucharist, or if the Eucharistic bread and wine had no taste, like other bread and wine, or even if we felt unique feelings each time we received the Eucharist, our faith would be less strong because it would have sensible or emotional crutches to lean on.Peter Kreeft Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Peter Kreeft: Christ deliberately hides Himself, disguises Himself, gives no physical sign of His Real Presence in
I'm proud to play for Real Madrid because I have fun; when you no longer have fun it's a sign that it's time to leave. For now though, I'm happy here at the greatest club in the world.Cristiano Ronaldo Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Cristiano Ronaldo: I'm proud to play for Real Madrid because I have fun; when you no longer
You'll reach a comfort zone in your life and start to wonder how you got there, how did you miss the sign posts that directed your real inner truth? Don't feel so guilty, you know when your meant to know and I guess that's the thing they don't teach you; when growing up, pain is inevitable but staying the same is a choice. Don't question why your feeling ready for something new, question why you stayed the same for so long.Nikki Rowe Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Nikki Rowe: You'll reach a comfort zone in your life and start to wonder how you got
These forays into the real world sharpened his view that scientists needed the widest possible education. He used to say, "How can you design for people if you don't know history and psychology? You can't. Because your mathematical formulas may be perfect, but the people will screw it up. And if that happens, it means you screwed it up." He peppered his lectures with quotations from Plato, Chaka Zulu, Emerson, and Chang-tzu.

But as a professor who was popular with his students - and who advocated general education - Thorne found himself swimming against the tide. The academic world was marching toward ever more specialized knowledge, expressed in ever more dense jargon. In this climate, being liked by your students was a sign of shallowness; and interest in real-world problems was proof of intellectual poverty and a distressing indifference to theory.
Michael Crichton Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Michael Crichton: These forays into the real world sharpened his view that scientists needed the widest possible
For just a moment, I thought about it. I pictured how it would be, dusting off the rusty Romance Lindsey, long hidden in some box in the back closet of my mind, under piles of more important boxes filled with Work Lindsey, and Mommy Lindsey, Divorce Court Lindsey, and now Shared Custody Lindsey, and Depressed Insane Lindsey.
Was Romance Lindsey even there anymore? Probably not. She had sat forgotten for so long that, like the Skin Horse and the Velveteen Rabbit, she had ceased to be real. I never even thought about her anymore. Until now. Which was a bad sign that the boxes were getting jumbled up and Control Freak Lindsey needed to get to work.
...
He grinned wickedly, and my stomach fluttered like a firecracker the instant the chain reaction starts inside the casing. Romance Lindsey and Tomboy Lindsey grabbed Mommy Lindsey, shoved her into a box, and sat down on the lid. Control Freak Lindsey ran away screaming.
Lisa Wingate Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Lisa Wingate: For just a moment, I thought about it. I pictured how it would be, dusting
It's a real democratic time for comedy, and I think my special is a sign for that. You don't have to just be a classic stand-up to get a special, or you don't just have to be on Saturday Night Live to do characters and sketch on TV. The web has allowed me to show that there are different ways to make people laugh, and the special is a combination of those things.Nick Kroll Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Nick Kroll: It's a real democratic time for comedy, and I think my special is a sign
Perimeter greatly reduced the pressure to launch on warning at the first sign of an American attack. It gave Soviet leaders more time to investigate the possibility of a false alarm, confident that a real attack would trigger a computer-controlled, devastating response. But it rendered American plans for limited war meaningless; the Soviet computers weren't programmed to allow pauses for negotiation. And the deterrent value of Perimeter was wasted. Like the doomsday machine in Dr. Strangelove, the system was kept secret from the United States.Eric Schlosser Sign Up For Real-time Sayings By Eric Schlosser: Perimeter greatly reduced the pressure to launch on warning at the first sign of an
