But the sound of water escaping from mill-dams, &c., willows, old rotten planks, slimy posts, and brickwork, I love such things. Shakespeare could make everything poetical; he tells us of poor Tom's haunts among "sheep cotes and mills." As long as I do paint, I shall never cease to paint such places. They have always been my delight.john constable
In the end, Mothers are always right. No one else tells the truth.Randy Susan Meyers
Indeed, it is not intellect, but intuition which advances humanity. Intuition tells man his purpose in this life.Albert Einstein
Man tells his aspiration in his God; but in his demon he shows his depth of experience; and casts light into the cavern through which he worked his cause up to the cheerful day.margaret fuller
She tells enough white lies to ice a wedding cake.Margot Asquith
The cradle rocks above an abyss, and common sense tells us that our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness.vladimir nabokov
It is a place where many, many things happened since the 12th Century. A place of knowledge... a place that tells us a lot about how great the African people were and continue to be. We need to save Timbuktu.
We frequently fall into error and folly, Dr. Johnson tells us, “not because the true principles of action are not known, but because, for a time, they are not remembered.” To compress, therefore, the great and obvious rules of life into brief sentences which are not easily forgotten is, as he said, to confer a real benefit upon us.
The Unicorn Sonata ... tells us that our true home is often right around the corner, if we'd only open our eyes and our ears to find it.
The notion of libertyamuses the people of England, and helps to keep off the taedium vitae.When a butcher tells you that his heart bleeds for his country he has, in fact, no uneasy feeling.
The guy has been there. What he tells us is not just what he believes deep down, but what he knows, because he has been through it.larry bird
Citizens of a modern society need [...] more than that ordinary "common sense" which was defined by Stuart Chase as that which tells you that the world is flat.
I'm always making a comeback but nobody ever tells me where I've been.Billie Holiday
Quantum theory also tells us that the world is not simply objective; somehow it's something more subtle than that. In some sense it is veiled from us, but it has a structure that we can understand.john polkinghorne
"Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" is inspired by old blues, Nashville psycho hillbillies & hazy memories. It tells the story of finding yourself lost on your path, and a choice has to be made. It's about gambling, fate, listening to your heart, and having the strength to fight the darkness that's always willing to carry you off.kt tunstall
The human race, my intuition tells me, is not outside the cosmic process and is not an accident. It is as much a part of the universe as the trees, the mountains, the aurora, and the stars.richard e. byrd
The student of development finds, not only that the chick commences its existence as an egg, primarily identical, in all essential respects, with that of the Dog, but that the yelk of this egg undergoes division that the primitive groove arises, and that the contiguous parts of the germ are fashioned, by precisely similar methods into a young chick, which, at one stage of its existence, is so like the nascent Dog, that ordinary inspection would hardly distinguish the two. The history of the development of any other vertebrate animal, Lizard, Snake, Frog, or Fish, tells the same story.thomas henry huxley
That it does not matter what a man believes is a statement heard on every side today. … What he believes tells him what the world is for.

The statement really means that it does not matter what a man believes so long as he does not take his beliefs seriously.richard weaver

What universities are saying by these codes, special protections, and double standards to women, to blacks, to Hispanics, to gay and lesbian students is, "You are too weak to live with freedom. You are too weak to live with the First Amendment." If someone tells you you are too weak to live with freedom, they have turned you into a child.
