The heavy casualties, the constant retreat, the shortage of food and munitions, the difficulty of receiving reinforcements... all this had a very bad effect on morale. Many longed to get across the Volga, to escape the hell of Stalingrad.
Life itself is your teacher, and you are in a state of constant learning.bruce lee
Manners are of more importance than laws. The law can touch us here and there, now and then. Manners are what vex or soothe, corrupt or purify, exalt or debase, barbarize or refine us, by a constant, steady, uniform, insensible operation like that of the air we breathe in.Edmund Burke
Change is the constant, the signal for rebirth, the egg of the phoenix.
Whether sociology can ever become a full-fledged "science" (a description of a class of events predictable on the basis of deductions from a constant ra~onale) depends on whether the terms which sociologists employ to describe events can be analyzed into quantifiable observables.Anatol Rapoport
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.ethan hawke
Change is the only constant, whether it's in music, culture, dance or fashion.Sonu Nigam
Our farmers round, well pleased with constant gain, Like other farmers, flourish and complain.George Crabbe
Justice is the constant and perpetual wish to render to every one his due.
The American conception of advertising is to arouse desires and stimulate wants, to make people dissatisfied with the old and out-of-date and by constant iteration to send them out to work harder to get the latest model—whether that model be an icebox or a rug or a new home.bruce fairchild barton
I was always much impressed, in reading prison memoirs of revolutionists, such as Lenin and Trotsky ... by the amount of reading they did, the languages they studied, the range of their plans for a better social order. (Or rather, for a new social order.) In the Acts of the Apostles there are constant references to the Way and the New Man.dorothy day
… Lewis will be remembered most for his unfailing commitment to justice as a concept that must rise above politics. For it is the Constitution, not any party, ideology or official, that merits Americans' constant allegiance.anthony lewis
Nec species sua cuique manet, rerumque novatrixEx aliis alias reddit natura figuras.Nec perit in toto quidquam, mihi credite, mundo,Sed variat faciemque novat: nascique vocaturIncipere esse aliud, quàm quod fuit antè; moriqueDesinere illud idem; quum sint huc forsitan illa,Haec translata illuc; summâ tamen omnia constant.ovid
I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life's greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.anthony robbins
In a progressive country change is constant; change is inevitable.benjamin disraeli
Naked girls with the heads of Marx and Malraux prone and helpless in the glare of the headlights, tried to give them a little joie de vivre but maybe it didn’t take, their constant bickering and smallness, it’s like a stroke of lightning, the world reminds you of its power, tracheotomies right and left, I am spinning, my pretty child, don’t scratch, pick up your feet, the long nights, spent most of my time listening, this is a test of the system, this is only a test.Donald Barthelme
It may be doubted whether any character can be named which is distinctive of a race and is constant.charles darwin
In civilized societies today ... clitoris envy, or womb envy, takes subtle forms. Man's constant need to disparage woman, to humble her, to deny her equal rights, and to belittle her achievements all are expressions of his innate envy and fear.elizabeth gould davis
Concerning non-violence: it is criminal to teach a man not to defend himself when he is the constant victim of brutal attacks.malcolm (malcolm little) x
We shall go according to the constant usage within memory.
Dark tree! still sad when other's grief is fled, The only constant mourner o'er the dead.lord byron
...throughout the world , except in the abodes of the guilty , goes out to the British airmen who, undaunted by odds, unwearied in their constant challenge and mortal danger , are turning the tide of world war by their prowess and their devotion.
constant dropping wears away the stone.
Love and grief our hearts dividing, With our tears His feet we bathe; constant still, in faith abiding, Life deriving from His death.james allen
Awit should no more be sincerethana woman constant; one argues a decay of parts, as t'other of beauty.william congreve
Nevertheless, our constant efforts to lower our estimate of the present world should not lead us to hate life or to be ungrateful toward God. For this life, though it is full of countless miseries, deserves to be reckoned among the divine blessings which should not be despised. Therefore, if we discover nothing of God’s goodness in it, we are already guilty of no small ingratitude toward him.john calvin
Life should be a constant vision of God's presence. Here is our defense against being led away by the gauds and shows of earth's vulgar attractions.alexander maclaren
