One friend in a lifetime is much, two are many, three are hardly possible. Friendship needs a certain parallelism of life, a community of thought, a rivalry of aim.henry adams
I predict that ashtrays will become as obsolete as spitoons in our lifetime.arthur black
Barack is one of the smartest men we will see in our lifetime.michelle obama
In his own lifetime Jesus made no impact on history. This is something that I cannot but regard as a special dispensation on God's part, and, I like to think, yet another example of the ironical humour which informs so many of his purposes. To me, it seems highly appropriate that the most important figure in all history should thus escape the notice of memoirists, diarists, commentators, all the tribe of chroniclers who even then existed.
lifetime is a child at play, moving pieces in a game. Kingship belongs to the child.heraclitus

There are two moments in the life of any fag that you can never forget: your first kiss with another man and your first argument with a heterosexual friend that doesn't get the difference between being a homosexual and wanting to be a woman. On first sight I can't calibrate which will be repeated more times during our sexually emancipated lifetime. Lucky enough, I can tell which we all prefer to be repeated: the argument with the heterosexual friend... if it ends in a long , wet, passionate kiss.miss shangay lily
Many who have spent a lifetime in it can tell us less of love than the child that lost a dog yesterday.thornton wilder
The fact that we have not yet found the slightest evidence for life much less intelligence beyond this Earth does not surprise or disappoint me in the least. Our technology must still be laughably primitive, we may be like jungle savages listening for the throbbing of tom-toms while the ether around them carries more words per second than they could utter in a lifetime.arthur c. clarke
Our lifetime may be the last that will be lived out in a technological society.arthur c. clarke
In a lifetime filled with despicable statements and support for history’s worst regimes, MIT professor Noam Chomsky has finally hit absolute bottom as he visits the leader of the Hizballah terror gang, calls the United States a “leading terrorist state,” and supports Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons to deter “Israeli aggression.”charles foster johnson
Technically he was highly gifted, but also severely limited. His music is well constructed and effective, but monotonous in texture, which consists in essence mainly of artificial and gushing tunes accompanied by a variety of figures derived from arpeggios. The enormous popular success some few of Rakhmaninoff's works had in his lifetime is not likely to last, and musicians never regarded it with much favour.sergei rachmaninoff
Some people work an entire lifetime and wonder if they ever made a difference to the world. But the Marines don't have that problem.ronald reagan
The progress of Sheffield in my lifetime has been something wonderful. Why, in my young days it was a little bit of a place of no consequence and no trade. When I think of the small notions and little minds of the public men of old Sheffield I can hardly realise that the City has become the fine important flourishing place it is today, one of the largest Cities of the Empire.
Loving you Is some kind of wonderful, Because you've shown me Just how much you care. You've given me the thrill of a lifetime.Natalie Cole

Most things in life are moments of pleasure and a lifetime of embarrassment; photography is a moment of embarrassment and a lifetime of pleasure.
"Why not go live on the beach?" "These things are a way of keeping score. I'm sure you have your own way of keeping score." I nodded. "I compare the numbers of answers I get to the number of questions I ask." "And how are you doing with that?" "lifetime average is close to a hundred per cent."lee child
