"We wanted Nike to be the worlds best sports and fitness company. Once you say that, you have a focus. You dont end up making wing tips or sponsoring the next Rolling Stones world tour."

Carmelo Bene Quotes

"Non sono mai nato, non mi vergogno di essere nellequivoco italiota, non mi interessano gli italiani. Qualunque governo come qualunque arte (o tutta larte borghese), tutta larte è rappresentazione di Stato, è statale. È uno stato che si assiste fin troppo, se no alla mediocrità chi ci pensa? La mediocrità, par excellence, è proprio lo Stato. Lo Stato dovrebbe smetterla di governare, ecco. Si può dare uno Stato senza governo, mi spiego? Non deve amministrare, deve lasciarlo fare a dei privati."

Amber Stevens Quotes

Nigel Hey Quotes

"An odd thing about perception is that when we identify some new thing with one or more of our five senses, it is not really, immutably real -- it is a passing will o the wisp, an artifact of the senses and the translations of the brain until we get used to it and we give it a home in our hearts"

Anne Moody Quotes

"Im through with you. Yes, I am going to put you down. From now on, I am my own God. I am going to live by the rules I se for myself. Ill discard everything I was once taught about you. Then Ill be you. Ill be my own God, living my life as I see fit. Not as Mr. Charlie says I should live it, or Mama or anybody else. I shall do as I want in this society that apparently wasnt meant for me and my kind. If you are getting angry because I am talking to you like this, then just kill me, leave me here in this graveyard dead. Maybe thats where all of us belong anyway. Maybe then we wouldnt have to suffer so much. At the rate we are being killed now, well all be soon dead anyway."

Tana French Quotes

"Over time, the ghosts of things that happened start to turn distant; once theyve cut you a couple of million times, their edges blunt on your scar tissue, they wear thin. The ones that slice like razors forever are the ghosts of things that never got the chance to happen."

Naomi Kinsman Quotes

"Dip your hands into life, scoop up memories, dreams, questions and ideas and weave them into stories."

Ida Lupino Quotes

"Whereupon, at the tender age of thirteen, I set upon the path of playing nothing but hookers."

Quotes About Changes And Moving On

"When we say time, I believe we mean at least two things. We mean changes. And we mean something unchangeable. We mean something that moves . but against an unmoving background. And vice versa.Animals can sense changes. But consciousness of time involves the double sense of constancy and change. Which can only be attributed to those who give expression to it. And that can only be done through language, and only man has language.The perception of time and language are inextricably bound up with one another." - Author: Peter Høeg

Quotes About Analytic Philosophy

"Why it was that upon this beautiful feminine tissue, sensitive as gossamer, and practically blank as snow as yet, there should have been traced such a coarse pattern as it was doomed to receive; why so often the coarse appropriates the finer thus, the wrong man the woman, the wrong women the man, many years of analytical philosophy have failed to explain to our sense of order" - Author: Thomas Hardy

Quotes About Self Enrichment

"Why do people often feel bad in good environments and good in bad environments? Why did Mother Teresa think that affluent Westerners often seemed poorer than the Calcutta poor, the poorest of the poor? The paradox comes to pass because the impoverishments and enrichments of a self in a world are not necessarily the same as the impoverishments and enrichments of an organism in an environment." - Author: Walker Percy

Quotes About Not Fighting With Friends

"You didnt want to put in the work to make us happen."It was true. I had been so captivated by Duncan, so enamored, so infatuated, that I let his life drown mine for two years. I went along, and when I got tired of it, tired of it just being easy and comfortable and convenient but not love, I ended it. And that was why I had the man in my lobby looking at me like there were still places for us to go. I had let him believe that he was my whole world, let him be everything, and then one day just stopped loving him and walked away. It was something I did, something I had always done—poured on the charm, made myself into the ideal partner, lover, friend, indispensable and irreplaceable, and then, when I got bored or tired or tapped out, instead of fighting, I just quit. It was wildly unfair, and the only people I didnt do it with were my family. Even my friends complained that I was always around and then just gone. Nathan Qells" - Author: Mary Calmes

Quotes About Arnold The Pump

"I, the driver of this car, that used to be Jim Ross, the teamster, and J.A. Ross and Co., general merchandise at Queen Centre, California, am now J. Arnold Ross, oil operator, and my breakfast is about digested, and I am a little too warm in my big new overcoat because the sun is coming out, and I have a new well flowing four thousand barrels at Los Lobos river, and sixteen on the pump at Antelope, and Im on my way to sign a lease at Beach City, and well make up our schedule in the next couple of hours, and Bunny is sitting beside me, and he is well and strong, and is going to own everything I am making, and follow in my footsteps, except that he will never make the ugly blunders or have painful memories that I have, but will be wise and perfect and do everything I say." - Author: Upton Sinclair

Quotes About Privid

"Zar sve danas nije samo imitacija? Zar u današnjem vremenu nije sve samo imitacija stvarnosti, sve oko nas je u stvari "pravimo-se-da-je-tako". I mir je samo "pravi-se-da-je-mir", i ekonomska kriza je virtuelna, nije prava, pa i rat je samo imitacija, a imitacija je i ekonomski napredak. Ali, i pored toga, milioni ljudi živi i umire u ovom prividnom svetu. Samo se po sebi razume da moraju da žive i umire; i oni su samo ljudi. To je samo po sebi posve razumljivo. Samo što u svemu tome "pravimo-se-da-je-tako" ne možeš da nađeš za šta bi dao svoj život. Ja sam čovek koji mora da da sve od sebe, inače ništa ne može da postigne." - Author: Yukio Mishima
