Favorite Pros Quotes

1. "This was a consequence of increasing prosperity, which, curiously enough, just seemed to bring out greed and selfishness."
Author: Alexander McCall Smith
2. "Never surrender your hopes and dreams to the fateful limitations others have placed on their own lives. The vision of your true destiny does not reside within the blinkered outlook of the naysayers and the doom prophets. Judge not by their words, but accept advice based on the evidence of actual results. Do not be surprised should you find a complete absence of anything mystical or miraculous in the manifested reality of those who are so eager to advise you. Friends and family who suffer the lack of abundance, joy, love, fulfillment and prosperity in their own lives really have no business imposing their self-limiting beliefs on your reality experience."
Author: Anthon St. Maarten
3. "I am created for success and the good life. I have in me the indestructible life. I walk in health, victory, prosperity and strength always because the Greater One lives in me!"
Author: Anyaele Sam Chiyson

Author: Anyaele Sam Chiyson
5. "Only once did he remark when the starter,which he was trying to open,literally fell to pieces in his hands,:'If you would write for those filthy boulevard papers,monsieur,you could soon buy a Chevrolet'(which was quite unture:In France the prostitutes of the pen were just as badly rewarded as their colleagues on the street corners)."
Author: Arthur Koestler
6. "Bachelorhood: all the fun of married life and more prosperity, leaving lots of descendants to boast of their father's memory to their fellow inmates."
Author: Bauvard
7. "...What seems strained-a mere triumph of preverse ingenuity-to one age, seems plain and obvious to another, so that our ancestors would often wonder how how we could possibly miss what we wonder how they could have been silly-clever enough to find. And between different ages there is no impartial judge on earth, for no one stands outside the historical proscess; and of course no one is so completely enslaved to it as those who take are own age to be, not one more period, but a final and permanent platform form which we can see all other ages objectively."
Author: C.S. Lewis
8. "The man who is unable to people his solitude is equally unable to be alone in a bustling crowd. The poet enjoys the incomparable privilege of being able to be himself or some one else, as he chooses. [...] The solitary and thoughtful stroller finds a singular intoxication in this universal communion. [...] What men call love is a very small, restricted, feeble thing compared with this ineffable orgy, this divine prostitution of the soul giving itself entire...to the unexpected as it comes along, the stranger as he passes."
Author: Charles Baudelaire
9. "A yet women -good women- frightened me because they eventually wanted your soul, and what was left of mine, I wanted to keep. Basically I craved prostitutes, base women, because they were deadly and hard and made no personal demands. Nothing was lost when they left. Yet at the same time I yearned for a gentle, good woman, despite the overwhelming price."
Author: Charles Bukowski
10. "I sought her eye, desirous to read there the intelligence which I could not discern in her face or hear in her conversation; it was merry, rather small; by turns I saw vivacity, vanity, coquetry, look out through its irid, but I watched in vain for a glimpse of soul. I am no Oriental; white necks, carmine lips and cheeks, clusters of bright curls, do not suffice for me without that Promethean spark which will live after the roses and lilies are faded, the burnished hair grown grey. In sunshine, in prosperity, the flowers are very well; but how many wet days are there in life--November seasons of disaster, when a man's hearth and home would be cold indeed, without the clear, cheering gleam of intellect."
Author: Charlotte Brontë
11. "Our top story tonight: Famous TV dolphin flipper was arrested today on prostitution ring charges. He allegedly was seen transporting two 16 year olds across state line for immoral porpoises."
Author: Colin Mochrie
12. "I read a lot of F. Scott Fitzgerald. I love 'Tender is the Night,' and its atmosphere of doomed romance. He was one of the greatest prose stylists, with a wonderfully clear but lyrical quality."
Author: David Nicholls
13. "Understanding that yes, we are committing more resources than we thought we might be in protecting our homeland and prosecuting a war and so it's understandable that we would be going through a period of deficits."
Author: Donald Evans
14. "There have been high crimes and misdemeanors, but they have been committed by the special prosecutor and the Congress, not the president."
Author: Donella Meadows
15. "Like an old gold-panning prospector, you must resign yourself to digging up a lot of sand from which you will later patiently wash out a few minute particles of gold ore."
Author: Dorothy Bryant
16. "Is it always in the interest of the public safety to seek the prosecutor's traditional solution - the harshest penalty possible? Or is the public best served by finding ways to change a kid's lot in life for the better, even if that means opening the prison door?"
Author: Edward Humes
17. "Indeed when, on somebody returning me the Eurydice, I opened and read some lines, as one commonly reads whether prose or verse, with the eyes, so to say, only, it struck me aghast with a kind of raw nakedness and unmitigated violence I was unprepared for: but take breath and read it with the ears, as I always wish to be read, and my verse becomes all right."
Author: Gerard Manley Hopkins
18. "The sense of a small courageous community barely existing above the desert of trees, hemmed in by a sun too fierce to work under and a darkness filled with evil spirits - love was an arm round the neck, a cramped embrace in the smoke, wealth a little pile of palm-nuts, old age sores and leprosy, religion a few stones in the centre of the village where the dead chiefs lay, a grove of trees where the rice birds, like yellow and green canaries, built their nests, a man in a mask with raffia skirts dancing at burials. This never varied, only their kindness to strangers, the extent of their poverty and the immediacy of their terrors. Their laughter and their happiness seemed the most courageous things in nature"
Author: Graham Greene
19. "I told her that magic spells only work until the person under the spell is really and honestly tired of it. It ends when continuing becomes simply too ghastly a prospect."
Author: Helen Oyeyemi
20. "La conoscenza del prossimo ha questo di speciale: passa necessariamente attraverso la conoscenza di se stesso."
Author: Italo Calvino
21. "I do very emphatically believe there is an enormous amount of the androgynous in any all-or-nothing prose writer, or even a would-be one."
Author: J.D. Salinger
22. "Pros before bros."
Author: Jamie McGuire
23. "To seek "causes" of poverty in this way is to enter an intellectual dead end because poverty has no causes. Only prosperity has causes."
Author: Jane Jacobs
24. "Chociaz nie odwazyl sie jej o to zapytac, byl pewien, ze sie masturbuje. Byla zbyt inteligentna, aby tego nie robic. Tylko kobiety, które sie masturbuja, dobrze wiedza, co je podnieca i umieja o to poprosic. Ponadto akt masturbacji jest jedynie dodatkiem do prawdziwego aktu, który ma miejsce w mózgu. Podbrzusze jest tylko scena, na której sie to rozgrywa. Byl pewien, ze ona masturbuje sie, myslac o nim. Tak, to byla wlasnie ta wylacznosc: byc w jej mózgu i w jej palcach w takim momencie. Czy mozna byc w ogóle blizej kobiety niz wtedy, gdy ona rozladowuje napiecie swoich fantazji, wiedzac, ze nic, absolutnie nic i przed nikim nie musi udawac?"
Author: Janusz Leon Wisniewski
25. "You do that, and I take back every nasty thing I've ever said about you."He grinned, his mood changing from serious to wicked in an instant. "Why? I'm all those things and more."I shook my head. Ian was more proud of his depravity than anyone I'd met, but if he helped me pull Bones out from under four bespelled vampires and one demonically-enchanced vamp, I'd shower him with prostitutes and porn while swearing he was an angel."
Author: Jeaniene Frost
26. "As a leftover sixties liberal, I believe that the long arm and beady eyes of the government have no place in our bedrooms, our kitchens, or the backseats of our parked cars. But I also feel that the immediate appointment of a Special Pastry Prosecutor would do much more good than harm. We know the free market has totally failed when 89 percent of all the tart pastry, chocolate-chip cookies, and tuiles in America are far less delicious than they would be if bakers simply followed a few readily available recipes. What we need is a system of graduated fines and perhaps short jail sentences to discourage the production of totally depressing baked goods. Maybe a period of unpleasant and tedious community service could be substituted for jail time."
Author: Jeffrey Steingarten
27. "Taxes are what we pay for civilized society, for modernity, and for prosperity. The wealthy pay more because they have benefitted more. Taxes, well laid and well spent, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, and promote the general welfare. Taxes protect property and the environment; taxes make business possible. Taxes pay for roads and schools and bridges and police and teachers. Taxes pay for doctors and nursing homes and medicine. During an emergency, like an earthquake or a hurricane, taxes pay for rescue workers, shelters, and services. For people whose lives are devastated by other kinds of disaster, like the disaster of poverty, taxes pay, even, for food."
Author: Jill Lepore
28. "They were in a trench sliding through a forest of corn. Machine stood over the rows, black girders that arced in the sky like the proscenium above a stage. The thought occurred to Wayne that those machines were sprayers, full of poison. They would drench the corn in a lethal rain to keep it from being eaten by invasive species. Those exact words - "invasive species" - rang through his brain. Later the corn would be lightly washed and people would eat it."
Author: Joe Hill
29. "By providing our school districts with direct access to criminal information records, we can help ensure timely and complete information on prospective school employees."
Author: Jon Porter
30. "And there had to be a dagger thrust in the heart of the left to tell them that you are no longer gonna give five years for a Smith Act prosecution or one year for Contempt of Court, but we're gonna kill ya!"
Author: Julius Rosenberg
31. "City of prose and fantasy, of capitalist automation, its streets a triumph of cubism, its moral philosophy that of the dollar. New York impressed me tremendously because, more than any other city, it is the fullest expression of our modern age."
Author: Leon Trotsky
32. "There comes a pause, for human strength will not endure to dance without cessation; and everyone must reach the point at length of absolute prostration"
Author: Lewis Carroll
33. "Why would affluence make him mad?""Maybe he's mad that this is as good as it gets. Your big house. His good school. I think it's very difficult for kids these days, in a way. The country's very prosperity has become a burden, a dead end. Everything works, doesn't it? At least if you're white and middle class. So it must often seem to young people that they're not needed. In a sense, it's as if there's nothing more to do."
Author: Lionel Shriver
34. "Slabiciunea noastra, a modernilor, e ca în loc sa gândim, gândurile ne gândesc pe noi. Noi stam molâi, femei adipoase, lubrice, nesatisfacute, ?i gândurile ne violenteaza, ne schingiuiesc, ne vând altora, iar noi nu protestam, ci le lasam sa ne stapâneasca, sa ne îndrepte pa?ii, sa ne prostitueze oricarui adevar care le satisface pe ele, nu pe noi."
Author: Mircea Eliade
35. "U prevelikom zanosu, zbog mrve savršenstva dogadalo se da pocinim obilje neoprostivih grešaka. Najveca od njih je bila sto sam se bavio znacima,umesto da pazim na predznak."
Author: Miroslav Antić
36. "The failure of national economic policy is costing us more than jobs; it has begun to weaken that uniquely American spirit of risk-taking, large ambition, and optimism about the future. We must rally them now to bold departures that rebuild our national morale as well as our material prosperity."
Author: Mitch Daniels
37. "What I did not know yet about hunger, but would find out over the next twenty-one years, was that brilliant theorists of economics do not find it worthwhile to spend time discussing issues of poverty and hunger. They believe that these will be resolved when general economic prosperity increases. These economists spend all their talents detailing the process of development and prosperity, but rarely reflect on the origin and development of poverty and hunger. A a result, poverty continues."
Author: Muhammad Yunus
38. "The prospect of getting rich is highly motivating, and few people get rich without taking a gamble."
Author: Peter L. Bernstein
39. "Polishing: a useful lesson for the hopeful writer. You say your tormented prose doesn't read as well as mine? Neither does mine, at first!"
Author: Piers Anthony
40. "Research had given him the basics,Tab A into Slot B using Product C after ensuring Product Dis firmly in place. The mechanics of it were simple. Theprospect, however, of having an A that big anywhere nearhis B was mildly worrying"
Author: R.J. Scott
41. "When the glory night envelop the moon that would light up the exhilaration of heart..the sun was reluctant to reveal smile to warm the earth..when the fire burn until the wood becomes charcoal yield and melted into disappointment..the earth will always embrace the rest of the wood by the fire burning in her arms..then it's me and you in equation narrative prose deep and glorious.."
Author: Rinto Yusnianto
42. "Tako sem se naucil,da je pomembno to, kar je v notranjosti, ne glede na to, kako cudovit je zunanji svet. In ce je tvoj notranji svet neurejen in nezdrav, te ne bo osrecilo nic, kar dobiš zunaj. Ce pa je tvoj notranji svet zdrav in izpolnjen, ti bodo najpreprostejše in najosnovnejše reci v zunanjem svetu napolnile srce in dušo."
Author: Robin S. Sharma
43. "A free and prosperous Iraq will be a major blow to the terrorists and their desire to establish a safe haven in Iraq where they can plan and plot attacks."
Author: Scott McClellan
44. "...what really makes for readability is not clarity but attitude: the attitude of your prose toward out elusive friend the Reader and the role you invent for that invented being in your invented world."
Author: Stephen Koch
45. "I'm very, very bullish about our prospects, and as I tell our board, as I tell our employees, this is the time to invest. There's so much opportunity. Let's just invest in that opportunity, and really get after it."
Author: Steve Ballmer
46. "This is what we, in the con business, call making a spectacle of ourselves. Let's try to avoid that from now on.""Except […] Mr. No-Sex-in-the-Bathrooms is going to describe two probably drunk people who staggered in. Plus, he thinks I'm a prostitute. We can double down on that by …" She stopped him, glancing back into the store throught the big plate-glass windows. Ian looked, too, and sure enough, the clerk was still watching them warily."Perfect, she said, and the made what was, absolutely, the international two-handed gesture for sexual intercourse. She then added a couple of exaggerated hip thrusts, saying, "I want to make this absolutely clear, because this guy's kind of an idiot." She then rubbed her fingers together, after which she held out her hand, palm up, as if to say Pay me.Ian cracked up. "That's actually kind of scary. Sex with a mime. Do I have to pay extra to make sure you don't do the trapped-in-a-box thing while we're doing it?"
Author: Suzanne Brockmann
47. "As a child our dreams got scattered all about and all our future prospects got scattered to so many places, and we spend our lives trying to find the little pieces that make up our lives and make up the dreams that we had as a child that got blown away in the windstorm."
Author: Terrence Howard
48. "If there is any political moral to be found in this world," Stencil once wrote in his journal, "it is that we carry on the business of this century with an intolerable double vision. Right and Left; the hothouse and the street. The Right can only live and work hermetically, in the hothouses of the past, while outside the Left prosecute their affairs in the streets by manipulated mob violence. And cannot live but in the dreamscape of the future. "What of the real present, the men-of-no-politics, the once-respectable Golden Mean? Obsolete; in any case, lost sight of. In a West of such extremes we can expect, at the very least, a highly ‘alienated' populace within not many more years."
Author: Thomas Pynchon
49. "To crush fanaticism and to venerate the infinite, such is the law. Let us not confine ourselves to prostrating ourselves before the tree of creation, and to the contemplation of its branches full of stars. We have a duty to labor over the human soul, to defend the mystery against the miracle, to adore the incomprehensible and reject the absurd, to admit, as an inexplicable fact, only what is necessary, to purify belief, to remove superstitions from above religion; to clear God of caterpillars."
Author: Victor Hugo
50. "3 P's are my soulmates: Pain, Prose and Poetry."
