Oh, it was awful, and I vowed to myself I would never, ever push myself to the edge that much again. It was really frightening.

Push yourself again and again. Don't give an inch until the final buzzer sounds.larry bird

What is it in man that for a long while lies unknown and unseen only one day to emerge and Push him into a new land of the eye, a new region of the mind, a place he has never dreamed of?

There's nothing you can do to stop it.william least heat-moon

You think that a wall as solid as the earth separates civilization from barbarism. I tell you the division is a thread, a sheet of glass. A touch here, a Push there, and you bring back the reign of Saturn.

It is a standing insult tosportsmen to have to play undera rule which assumes that players intend to trip, hack and Push their opponents, and to behave like cads of the most unscrupulous kidney. The lines marking a penalty area are a disgrace to the playing fields of a public school.C(harles) B(urgess) Fry
He who is running a race ought to endeavor and strive to the utmost of his ability to come off victor; but it is utterly wrong for him to trip up his competitor, or to Push him aside. So in life it is not unfair for one to seek for himself what may accrue to his benefit; but it is not right to take it from another.chrysippus

The world stands out on either sideNo wider than the heart is wide;Above the world is stretched the sky, —No higher than the soul is high.The heart can Push the sea and landFarther away on either hand;The soul can split the sky in two,And let the face of God shine through.But East and West will pinch the heartThat can not keep them pushed apart;And he whose soul is flat — the skyWill cave in on him by and by.edna st. vincent millay
The artist, like the idiot or clown, sits on the edge of the world, and a Push may send him over it.osbert sitwell
He picked out this sentence in a New Yorker casual of mine: "After dinner, the men moved into the living room," and he wanted to know why I, or the editors, had put in the comma. I could explain that one all night. I wrote back that this particular comma was Ross's way of giving the men time to Push back their chairs and stand up.james thurber

Put the money into schools. Rational ones that train young minds to think, to demand that persons in authority show the evidence for the ideas they Push. Do that, and we won’t need to provide a world for the Sacred Brethren who, given the opportunity, would run everyone else off the planet.jack mcdevitt
Repealing drug laws would remove the risks involved with producing and distributing drugs, bringing 'street prices' crashing down (it's estimated that a 'spoon' of heroin would cost about a quarter in the free market), thereby eradicating any incentive that criminals might have to compete with legitimate businesses, and greatly reducing if not eliminating altogether any economic reason to ' Push ' drugs on children.l. neil smith
In railway halls, on pavements near the traffic, They beg, their eyes made big by empty staring And only measuring Time , like the blank clock. No, I shall weave no tracery of pen-ornament To make them birds upon my singing tree: Time merely drives these lives which do not live As tides Push rotten stuff along the shore.stephen spender

Like Teresa of Avila, Kazantzakis indicates that behind all appearances lies a struggling divine essence (the "Invisible") that is striving to merge with our hearts just as the mystic is striving to merge with God's. Nonetheless God's striving is on a cosmic scale such that there is something trivial involved when we Push anthropocentric images too far in our description of God.
