Teenage crush is like flu. If you find a remedy for it, it lasts for a couple of days. If you don't, it still lasts for a couple of days.
Small service is true service while it lasts: Of humblest friends, bright Creature! scorn not one; The Daisy, by the shadow that it casts, Protects the lingering dew drop from the Sun.william wordsworth
Youth ages, immaturity is outgrown, ignorance can be educated, drunkenness sobered, but stupid lasts forever.Aristophanes
Le parfum de mille roses ne pla|"t qu'un instant; mais la douleur que cause une seule de leurs e pines dure longtemps apre' s la piq u" re. The perfume of a thousand roses pleases only for an instant; but the pain caused bya single one of their thorns lasts a long time after the prick.Jacques-Henri Bernardin de Saint-Pierre
I do not say that democracy has been more pernicious on the whole, and in the long run, than monarchy or aristocracy. Democracy has never been and never can be so durable as aristocracy or monarchy; but while it lasts, it is more bloody than either.john adams
If this planet lasts for another thousand years people will still be talking about the terrible event we are now living through.mohamed al-fayed
Why then, if these books for children must be retained, as they will be, should not the bible regain the place it once held as a school book? Its morals are pure, its examples captivating and noble. The reverence for the sacred book, that is thus early impressed, lasts long; and, probably, if not impressed in infancy, never takes firm hold of the mind.fisher ames
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.lance armstrong
Men who are sincere in defending their freedom, will always feel concern at every circumstance which seems to make against them; it is the natural and honest consequence of all affectionate attachments, and the want of it is a vice. But the dejection lasts only for a moment; they soon rise out of it with additional vigor; the glow of hope, courage and fortitude, will, in a little time, supply the place of every inferior passion, and kindle the whole heart into heroism.thomas paine
I wish I could write a book that will be read for as long as our civilization lasts... I would value it much more highly than any business success if I could contribute to an understanding of the world in which we live or, better yet, if I could help to preserve the economic and political system that has allowed me to flourish as a participant.george soros
Economic systems come, and economic systems go. No economic system lasts forever. Capitalism is not likely to last forever, either.jim stanford
The longer the battle lasts the more force we'll have to use!georgy zhukov
Perfect works are rare, because they must be produced at the happy moment when taste and genius unite ; and this rare conjuncture, like that of certain planets, appears to occur only after the revolution of several cycles, and only lasts for an instant.françois-rené de chateaubriand
It is absurd to think that the only way to tell if a poem is lasting is to wait and see if it lasts. The right reader of a good poem can tell the moment it strikes him that he has taken an immortal wound that he will never get over it.robert frost
Evil grows and bears fruit, which is understandable, because it has logic and probability on its side and also, of course, strength. The resistance of tiny kernels of good, to which no one grants the power of causing far-reaching consequences, is entirely mysterious, however. Such seeming nothingness not only lasts but contains within itself enormous energy which is revealed gradually.czesław miłosz
"Injustice which lasts for three long centuries and which exists among millions of people over thousands of square miles of territory, is injustice no longer; it is an accomplished fact of life. Men adjust themselves to their land; they create their own laws of being; their notions of right and wrong.richard wright
Economic systems come, and economic systems go. No economic system lasts forever. Capitalism is not likely to last forever, either.
You have to choose (as a voter) between trusting to the natural stability of gold and the natural stability of the honesty and intelligence of the members of the Government. And, with due respect for these gentlemen, I advise you, as long as the Capitalist system lasts, to vote for gold.
Youth ages, immaturity is outgrown, ignorance can be educated, drunkenness sobered, but stupid lasts forever.
Plato's discovery went as follows. It is possible for something to be a certain way and for something else to be the same way. So There are universals. (Tumultuous applause, which lasts, despite occasional subsidences, 2,400 years.)[…] ' Universals ' is simply the name philosophers give to the ways in which two or more things can be the same.
Nothing lasts forever, thank God.
