I have a dream. I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
Her underlip protruded a little; she had a way of sucking it in that somebody else had told her was awfully fascinating.Beauchamp
The wisdom of a learned man cometh by opportunity of leisure: and he that hath little business shall become wise. How can he get wisdom that holdeth the plough, and that glorieth in the goad, that driveth oxen, and is occupied in their labours, and whose talk is of bullocks?Bible (Apocrypha)
Did you ever hear of Captain Wattle? He was all for love, and a little for the bottle.Porfirio Diaz
A man should keep his little brain attic stocked with all the furniture that he is likely to use, and the rest he can put away in the lumber room of his library, where he can get it if he wants it.Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Speak roughly to your little boy, And beat him when he sneezes: He only does it to annoy, Because he knows it teases.
His slang?was always a little out of date, as though he had studied in a dictionary of popular usage, but not in the latest edition.
I am not charmed with the ideal of life held out by those who think that the normal state of human beings is that of struggling to get on. I know not why it should be a matter of congratulation that persons who are already richer than any one needs to be, should have doubled their means of consuming things which give little or no pleasure except as representative of wealth.john stuart mill
I do not know why journalists insist on calling their stuff "pieces", when they are in fact little entities, attempting to have beginnings, middles and endings.james cameron
Wouldn`t it be wonderful if we could all be a little more gentle with each other, and a little more loving, have a little more empathy, and maybe we'd like each other a little bit more.judy garland
"I have more dumb luck thank anybody I know. There must be a convey of guardian angels working twenty-four hours a day looking after me[...] Like the night I first got to Nashville that I laid down in the middle of Broadway, waiting to get run over. It didn't happen [...] I could swear they were keeping me alive just to see what I'd get next, I'm glad they feel that way. I'm trying to help them a little more this days."willie nelson
"In all these countries, (Özal swept his hand across the map from Afghanistan to Algeria) too many people have too little hope."turgut Özal
We did long for the pitter-patter of little feet, so we decided to buy a dog. Cheaper, and… get more feet.rita rudner
Truth lies within a little and certain compass, but error is immense.st john, henry, 1st viscount bolingbroke
I may sound a little black, but I'm really pretty well adjusted.hunter s. thompson
If you understood a business perfectly and the future of the business, you would need very little in the way of a margin of safety. So, the more vulnerable the business is, assuming you still want to invest in it, the larger margin of safety you'd need. If you're driving a truck across a bridge that says it holds 10,000 pounds and you've got a 9,800 pound vehicle, if the bridge is 6 inches above the crevice it covers, you may feel okay, but if it's over the Grand Canyon, you may feel you want a little larger margin of safety...warren buffett
Except by name, Jean Paul Friedrich Richter is little known out of Germany. The only thing connected with him, we think, that has reached this country is his saying, imported by Madame de Staël, and thankfully pocketed by most newspaper critics, "Providence has given to the French the empire of the land; to the English that of the sea; to the Germans that of the air!"thomas carlyle
His voice rose under the black smoke before the burning wreckage of the island; and infected by that emotion, the other little boys began to shake and sob too. And in the middle of them, with filthy body, matted hair, and unwiped nose, Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man's heart, and the fall through the air of the true, wise friend called Piggy.william golding
Of course some sort of general idea they must have, if they were to do their work intelligently though as little of one as possible. For particulars, as every one knows, make for virtue and happiness; generalities are intellectually necessary evils. Not philosophers but fretsawyers and stamp collectors compose the backbone of society.aldous huxley
I have always disliked being a man. The whole idea of manhood in America is pitiful, in my opinion. This version of masculinity is a little like having to wear an ill-fitting coat for one's entire life (by contrast, I imagine femininity to be an oppressive sense of nakedness).paul theroux
With ordinary men the moments which are united in a close continuity out of the original discrete multiplicity are very few, and the course of their lives resembles a little brook, whereas with the genius it is more like a mighty river into which all the little rivulets flow from afar; that is to say, the universal comprehension of genius vibrates to no experience in which all the individual moments have not been gathered up and stored.otto weininger
Twinkle, twinkle, little star, how I wonder what you are! Up above the world so high, like a diamond in the sky!ann taylor
It is as natural to die as to be born; and to a little infant, perhaps, the one is as painful as the other.Francis Bacon
All of the biggest technological inventions created by man – the airplane, the automobile, the computer – says little about his intelligence, but speaks volumes about his laziness.Mark Kennedy
