The thing that really breeds career longevity in this profession is doing good work. You can make $20 million a movie, but does that mean you'll still have a job when you're 60? It's a profession that eats people up and wants constant turnaround, so you have to dedicate yourself to learning and making the most of whatever gift you may have.
Sadder than the beggar is the man who eats alone in public.jean baudrillard
You are a spirit, thena god,full capableof making spaceand energy and timeand all things well.And there you crouch, forgottento yourself and hidden fromthe eyes of allpretending there to bea beastthat walks and eats and dies.l. ron hubbard
Faith does not first ask what the bread is made of, but eats it. It does not analyze the components of the living stream, but with joy draws water from the "wells of salvation."john rose macduff
Guilt upon the conscience, like rust upon iron, both defiles and consumes it, gnawing and creeping into it, as that does which at last eats out the very heart and substance of the metal.robert south
A Wolf eats sheep but now and then; Ten thousands are devour'd by men. An open foe may prove a curse, but a pretend friend is worse.john gay
Each civilization may choose one of two roads to travel, that is, either fret itself to death, or pet itself to death. And in the course of doing one or the other, it eats its way into the Universe, turning cinders and flinders of stars into toilet seats, pegs, gears, cigarette holders and pillowcases, and it does this because, unable to fathom the Universe, it seeks to change that Fathomlessness into Something Fathomable.stanisław lem
The next time you feel like complaining, remember that your garbage disposal probably eats better than 30 percent of the people in the world.robert orben
Celebrity is a mask that eats into the face. As soon as one is aware of being “somebody,” to be watched and listened to with extra interest, input ceases, and the performer goes blind and deaf in his overanimation. One can either see or be seen.john updike
All these soft kinds [of stone] have the advantage that they can be easily worked as soon as they have been taken from the quarries. Under cover, they play their part well; but in open and exposed situations the frost and rime make them crumble, and they go to pieces. On the seacoast, too, the salt eats away and dissolves them, nor can they stand great heat either.vitruvius
"Dozens of Judensaus... intersect with the portrayal of the Jew as a Christ killer. Various illustrations of the murder of Simon of Trent blended images of Judensau, the devil , the murder of little Simon himself, and the Crucifixion . In the seventeenth-century engraving from Frankfurt ... a well-dressed, very contemporary-looking Jew has mounted the sow backward and holds her tail, while a second Jew sucks at her milk and a third eats her feces. The horned devil, himself wearing a Jewish badge, looks on and the butchered Simon, splayed as if on a cross, appears on a panel above."
A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral.leo tolstoy
[Y]ou drive all night and then you see a light And it comes right down and it lands on the ground And out comes the man from Mars And you try to run but he's got a gun And he shoots you dead and he eats your head And then you're in the man from Mars You go out at night eating cars...
Ireland is the old sow that eats her farrow.
"Dear sinners all," the fool began, "man's life is but a jest, A dream, a shadow, bubble, air, a vapour at the best. In a thousand pounds of law I find not a single ounce of love, A blind man killed the parson's cow in shooting at the dove; The fool that eats till he is sick must fast till he is well, The wooer who can flatter most will bear away the belle." * * * * * * And then again the women screamed, and every staghound bayed; And why? because the motley fool so wise a sermon made.
The still sowe eats up all the draffe.
Note: Ratigan's henchman Bartholomew falls into some alcohol and emerges very drunk and calls his boss "the world's greatest rat". Since Ratigan hates being called a rat and prefers the term of "a big mouse", he sentences him to death at the hands of his pet cat, who eats him up while he's still drunkenly singing of Ratigan's glory, unaware of what is about to happen despite Ratigan telling him.
The unhappy man, who once has trail'd a pen, Lives not to please himself, but other men; Is always drudging, wastes his life and blood, Yet only eats and drinks what you think good.john dryden
If the hyena eats the sick man, it will eat the whole one
The juvenile sea squirt wanders through the sea searching for a suitable rock or hunk of coral to cling to and make its home for life. For this task, it has a rudimentary nervous system. When it finds its spot and takes root, it doesn't need its brain anymore so it eats it! (It's rather like getting tenure.)
What is time ? It is a serpent which eats its tail [...].kurt vonnegut
