The Germans, if this Government is returned, are going to pay every penny. Theyare going to be squeezed as a lemon is squeezeduntil the pips squeak. My only doubt is not whether we can squeeze hard enough, but whether there is enough juice.
I liked this because of the elimination of the essential in the composition. I cut it down and down, and down. This squeezed up to make it vivid.william carlos williams
I believe that people are like portmanteauxpacked with certain things, started going, thrown about, tossed away, dumped down, lost and found, half emptied suddenly, or squeezed fatter than ever, until finally the Ultimate Porter swings them on to the UltimateTrain and away they rattle.Beauchamp
As to the Income Tax, my opinion is that the needful revenue would be fairly and most fairly raised if paid by property, and by individuals in proportion to their property...A Property Tax should be an assessment upon all land and buildings, and canals and railroads, but not on property such as machinery, stock in trade, etc. The aristocracy have squeezed all they can out of the mass of the consumers, and now they lay their daring hands on those not wholly impoverished.john bright
If you're squeezed for information , that's when you've got to play it dumb: You just say you're out there waiting for the miracle to come.leonard cohen
Pearl Harbor is a two-hour movie squeezed into three hours, about how on December 7, 1941, the Japanese staged a surprise attack on an American love triangle. Its centerpiece is 40 minutes of redundant special effects, surrounded by a love story of stunning banality. The film has been directed without grace, vision, or originality, and although you may walk out quoting lines of dialog, it will not be because you admire them.roger ebert
Creative work, in geology and anywhere else, is interaction and synthesis: half-baked ideas from a barroom, rocks in the field, chains of thought from lonely walks, numbers squeezed from rocks in a laboratory, numbers from a calculator riveted to a desk, fancy equipment usually malfunctioning on expensive ships, cheap equipment in the human cranium, arguments before a roadcut.stephen jay gould
The meaning of life is that it is to be lived, and it is not to be traded and conceptualized and squeezed into a pattern of systems.bruce lee
If you choose to represent the various parts in life by holes upon a table, of different shapes, some circular, some triangular, some square, some oblong, and the persons acting these parts by bits of wood of similar shapes, we shall generally find that the triangular person has got into the square hole, the oblong into the triangular, and a square person has squeezed himself into the round hole. The officer and the office, the doer and the thing done, seldom fit so exactly that we can say they were almost made for each other.sydney smith
This Ganga was sent out for salvation of the world of Sambhu, Lord of lords, filled with the sweet wine of compassion. Shankara, having squeezed out the essence of yoga and the Upanishads , created this excellent river because of his mercy for all creatures.
