Clement Clarke Moore
My feeling is that scientific method has the power to account for and interlink all phenomena in the universe, including its origin, using the laws of nature. But that still leaves the laws unexplained.
I do love that witches haven’t really been explored that much. Usually, witches are the little side character… a bad female character that comes in and leaves.
The lack of diversity, specifically in genre films and the superheroes our kids grow up watching and emulating, they can’t really identify with. When you see the same thing, over and over again, and it seems not to speak of you and your heritage and your culture, it leaves you out of this world a little bit.

Doubts never end. If one doubt is removed, another takes its place. It is like removing the leaves of a tree one by one. Even if all the leaves are clipped off, new ones grow. The tree itself must be uprooted.
When I was 18 years old I went to Shakespeare Company, the school, and I wrote a poem about my leaves – I felt like a tree that had no leaves. That is the life at 18.

I know this: the opportunity to play, when that leaves, it is over.

I find that doing of the will of God leaves me no time for disputing about His plans.
Companies selling a product play down its vulnerability and emphasize its robustness. But only after technology leaves the dock is it really tested. For human operators in control of a supposedly infallible system, complacency and overconfidence can take over, and caution may be thrown to the wind.
I’m sentimental about many things: the lumpy feel of a baby’s unused feet, the metallic smell of the air before the first snow, the last scene in ‘It’s a Wonderful Life.’ But Valentine’s Day leaves me cold.
Being hummed at by someone with magic hands while they knead your neck is good for the soul, but it won’t make you giggle for days afterwards. In fact, the second the smiley therapist stops and says, ‘You can put your robe on now, the hour is up,’ the joy and wonder sort of leaves the room.
There’s no nobility with war. It’s tear-’em-up destruction that leaves you frustrated, bitter and angry… If you really knew what it was like for an hour, you wouldn’t want anyone to go through it.
I like to keep an open mind, but I do think there is some form of energy that exists separate to our flesh and blood. I do think that there’s some kind of an energy that leaves the body when it dies, but I certainly don’t have religious beliefs particularly.

I’m interested in the impact my movies have on people and how it affects them, and what they like and what they don’t like – and what they take away from it. What leaves an impression, you know?
The possible solutions to a given problem emerge as the leaves of a tree, each node representing a point of deliberation and decision.
I’m aware of ‘Twilight,’ but I’ve never seen the movies or read any of the books. Frankly, the story leaves me cold – why do a vampire story about abstinence?
You will be hard pressed to read another book that understands you as well as ‘Leaves of Grass’ does. It was made for you in the way that the constellations were made for you. It understands and makes space for your doubts, your love, the guilt and passions of your life and waits for you.
Rowan Ricardo Phillips
The flip side of suicide is that it leaves a lingering question in the minds of the people who survived. It’s like a cancer that’s metastasized. The suicide is the cancer and the metastasis is all these people saying, Why? Why? Why?

The more anxious, isolated and time-deprived we are, the more likely we are to turn to paid personal services. To finance these extra services, we work longer hours. This leaves less time to spend with family, friends and neighbors; we become less likely to call on them for help, and they on us.
Arlie Russell Hochschild
Once music ceases to be ephemeral – always disappearing – and becomes instead material… it leaves the condition of traditional music and enters the condition of painting. It becomes a painting, existing as material in space, not immaterial in time.
Competition has been shown to be useful up to a certain point and no further, but cooperation, which is the thing we must strive for today, begins where competition leaves off.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
One of the aims of higher education is to broaden perspectives, and what better way than by a home stay in a really different country, like Bangladesh or Senegal? Time abroad also leaves one more aware of the complex prism of suspicion through which the United States is often viewed.
I really developed an early love for ballet. Like most dancers, I am still ‘first’ a dancer. I’m very proud of it. Once you are a dancer, the physicality never leaves you, nor does the strength. Hopefully, it keeps you like an athlete.
Latin America’s economies are organized in a way that concentrates wealth in a few hands but then leaves it untaxed, depriving governments of the resources needed to invest in their citizens’ human capital.
Every time a woman leaves the workforce because she can’t find or afford childcare, or she can’t work out a flexible arrangement with her boss, or she has no paid maternity leave, her family’s income falls down a notch. Simultaneously, national productivity numbers decline.

Success leaves clues, and if you sow the same seeds, you’ll reap the same rewards.
I don’t think that ‘The Weight of the World’ is all about politics. It’s like, how the environment and how the natural topography of this planet would ever fall into a political division, debate, just leaves me confused.
You know, when people look at a tree, they look at the leaves; they don’t look at the spaces between the leaves. They’re focused on the tree. I think there’s an awareness of spaces or it wouldn’t look like a tree to them.
I have experienced firsthand the tremendous impact breast cancer has on the women who fight it and the loved ones who support them. This is a disease that catches you unaware and, without the right resources, leaves you feeling frightened and alone.
Ricardo Antonio Chavira
‘The Leaves Are Fading’ had something of a vogue when Antony Tudor made it in 1975, largely because of Gelsey Kirkland’s ravishing performance.
I don’t want to know about the lives of other actors and I don’t want people to know too much about me. If we don’t know about the private lives of other actors, that leaves us as clean slates when it comes to playing characters. That’s the point, they can create these other characters and I can believe them.
It’s said that history inevitably marches toward democracy, but it only leaves the possibility of democracy, and the constant threat that it would be eroded by big money.
A lot of people have that notion that it must have been easier for me because I had the Malik tag. But I don’t feel it’s right. With due respect to someone like Ankit Tiwari who leaves everything at home to come and make it big here without any backing, I agree I have an advantage.
The world is wide. No two days are alike, nor even two hours, neither were there ever two leaves of a tree alike since the creation of all the world; and the genuine productions of art, like those of nature, are all distinct from each other.
One of the biggest misconceptions is that players care about transfer fees. For a player, they do not care at all. They do not care if they move clubs for one million, 10 million, or 100 million Euros. That is just something a player leaves to his agent and the clubs.
I think the legacy Ronda leaves behind is that she changed women’s MMA.
I don’t cook at all, and whenever my husband Paul goes away he leaves meals for me and I can’t even be bothered to put them in the oven.

Ralph G. Neas
Celery leaves are an underused ingredient, most likely because supermarkets sell mostly leafless stalks.

Language is a living thing. We can feel it changing. Parts of it become old: they drop off and are forgotten. New pieces bud out, spread into leaves, and become big branches, proliferating.
Odd how much it hurts when a friend moves away- and leaves behind only silence.
A new breeze is blowing, and a world refreshed by freedom seems reborn; for in man’s heart, if not in fact, the day of the dictator is over. The totalitarian era is passing, its old ideas blown away like leaves from an ancient, lifeless tree.
George H. W. Bush
Ye are the fruits of one tree and the leaves of one branch.
I always condition my ends, and I love Mane and Tail. It’s so amazing. It leaves a film of moisture and just gives great texture.
Socialism is the democratisation of every level of society, or it is nothing. It is based on an understanding that the concentration of wealth and power leaves democracy hollowed out, and that simply trooping to a polling station every few years is an insufficient counterweight to the behemoths of global capital.
The great thing coming from sports is you understand the concept of a team. It leaves no room for being selfish, and that’s something I picked up from home.
When I begin to eliminate from the list all those professions which are impossible from a financial point of view and then those which I feel disinclined to – it leaves nothing.
As far as I can see, the best writers in the last two hundred years have been Whitman, Rilke, Proust, Kafka. Their best works: ‘Leaves of Grass – 1855;’ ‘Duino Elegies;’ ‘The Captive & The Fugitive;’ ‘The Castle.’
I tweet from bed. I love it because it’s so quick. And it’s funny. But it also leaves a lot of room for error because new people don’t sense the sarcasm – there’s no sarcasm font.
My sense is that the wonderful technology that we have to visualize the inside of the body often leaves physicians feeling that the exam is a waste of time and so they may shortchange the ritual.

Wisdom prepares for the worst, but folly leaves the worst for the day when it comes.
Every day or two, I strolled to the village to hear some of the gossip which is incessantly going on there, circulating either from mouth to mouth, or from newspaper to newspaper, and which, taken in homeopathic doses, was really as refreshing in its way as the rustle of leaves and the peeping of frogs.
Henry David Thoreau
A bit of a spray tan always leaves you feeling better.

An arrow may fly through the air and leave no trace; but an ill thought leaves a trail like a serpent.

Karl Lagerfeld looks very tough because of the glasses, and he has all these rings and the leather gloves, and he’s so smart. But he’s a very nice person… when he comes into a room or studio, he is going to say hello to each person, and the same when he leaves.
Caresses, expressions of one sort or another, are necessary to the life of the affections as leaves are to the life of a tree. If they are wholly restrained, love will die at the roots.

Shall I not have intelligence with the earth? Am I not partly leaves and vegetable mould myself.
Henry David Thoreau

Daniel H. Wilson
We never said the U.K. is in bad shape if it leaves the E.U.: we said the E.U. would miss a massive opportunity. Without the U.K., the E.U. may never be able to stand up against superpowers like China and the U.S.
I don’t think I will ever be erased from people’s memory as I like to believe the work I do leaves an impact on people.

We all know that any thing which retards in any way the free circulation of the sap, also prevents to a certain extent the formation of wood and leaves.
People in so many countries look up to the United States as a model of democracy, but I doubt if that can continue. It leaves me with a great sense of loss.
Unlike a novel, where you expect a different kind of arc that leaves us with a somber sense of resolution, I think a story in some ways as like a train window: being able to watch the landscape pass for a certain amount of time. And then your stop arrives, and you have to leave.
Laura van den Berg

I used to have an aunty who read tea leaves. She was incredibly accurate.
The biggest change I notice in the winter months is with my skin. I find all the cold weather and central heating leaves it feeling more dull, dry and easily irritated. So for me, finding little ways to make my skincare routine work harder is my winter beauty priority.
I feel like a tree. A tree doesn’t feel a duty to start doing something about the earth from which it comes. A tree just has to bear fruit, and leaves and blossoms. It doesn’t feel grateful to the earth.
When I would hear the rabbi tell about some miracle such as a bush whose leaves were shaking but there wasn’t any wind, I would try to fit the miracle into the real world and explain it in terms of natural phenomena.
Richard P. Feynman

Jerry Robinson illustrated some of the defining images of pop culture’s greatest icons. As an artist myself, it’s impossible not to feel humbled by his body of work. Everyone who loves comics owes Jerry a debt of gratitude for the rich legacy that he leaves behind.
Being an American is a state of mind, and to be in a family is to feel the power of belonging, the power of your roots. Family is a tree, the strength of a tree, the roots, the leaves, the past and the present, the future, the fruits, the seeds.
Love seeks one thing only: the good of the one loved. It leaves all the other secondary effects to take care of themselves. Love, therefore, is its own reward.

Social lets consumers talk about the products. You may pay your way onto the Facebook feed, but after that, it’s conversations by the users. That’s not sufficient because it leaves out what is possible for employees to talk, for R&D to talk, or the CEO to talk.
Anger and hate against one we love steels our hearts, but contempt or pity leaves us silent and ashamed.
Edgar Rice Burroughs
If you go to Japan, even at the pokiest little station, every single train is arrives and leaves on time – not to a couple of minutes, within 30 seconds. In Canada, they have constant problems with massive avalanches and bear attacks on the line, but all these problems are solved immediately.
People talk about the drama of the set that goes on and on. But it leaves one guy exhausted for the next round, it’s horrible for the players waiting to come on court, and it has the potential to mess up the schedule for everyone.

The major poets of New Jersey have all suffered, whether it’s Whitman, who lost his job for ‘Leaves of Grass,’ or William Carlos Williams, who was called a communist, or Ginsberg, whose ‘Howl’ was prosecuted, or myself. If you practise poetry the way I think it needs to be done, you’re going to put yourself in jeopardy.

No one leaves an old friend unless they are ashamed.
If parents could just get their children moving around in the most simple and fun ways – jumping in leaves, dancing to pop music, throwing socks in a laundry basket – they could be sowing the seeds of great habits that could last a lifetime. It is all about turning it into a game.
If you ask my one regret, it is that I could not bring those City fans a trophy. That’s the only thing that leaves me a little sad.
Metaphorical tone deafness is when people are unable to discern what is of value in something. I think I’m tone deaf to poetry, for instance. Despite having studied it into a second year of university, most of it just leaves me cold.
I wish I could come home to a life that looks like a TV show. I wish I could see my television family waiting for me, where no one fights and no one screams, no one lies and no one leaves.

When we’ve had images that perpetuate the negative stereotype of people of color, we’ve always had ‘The Cosby Show’ to hold up against that. And the fact that we no longer have that kinda leaves us not in a great place in terms of having the wide scope of the images of people of color.
For most people, using the Internet broadens their sense of who ‘we’ is and actually ends up leaving us in a place of greater compassion and understanding. It leaves us more connected to a larger group of people and more at one with a lot more people in our community.
Nature has endowed us with needs; among them are some that she leaves to our own activity to satisfy. Abundant as are the gifts she has bestowed upon us, still more abundant are our desires. We seem born to be dissatisfied.

That stupid postmodern emphasis on image over content has slammed us right into a dramaturgy that willfully leaves the audience behind and then resents the fact that they don’t ‘get it.’
I started writing ‘Leaves Of Grass’ when my professional life was falling apart somewhat. I just had a movie implode in pre-production. And so I came back licking my wounds to New York, where I live, and started to write a script about a protagonist for whom the exact same thing happened: His life was falling apart.
Tim Blake Nelson

Cinema has a greater impact as it leaves a long lasting memory. Television, on the other hand, is also good but requires a lot of time.

The customs and fashions of men change like leaves on the bough, some of which go and others come.

Hubert de Givenchy
A lot of what people are calling ‘artificial intelligence’ is really data analytics – in other words, business as usual. If the hype leaves you asking ‘What is A.I., really?,’ don’t worry, you’re not alone.
He can fight terrorists overseas, but he leaves our borders so they can come in here and do their thing.
To such an extent does nature delight and abound in variety that among her trees there is not one plant to be found which is exactly like another; and not only among the plants, but among the boughs, the leaves and the fruits, you will not find one which is exactly similar to another.
Leonardo da Vinci
My first major role was in a play called ‘Through the Leaves.’
That’s one part of my game that never leaves – the defensive part.
If I’m extremely bored and I don’t have a book with me and I’m being an obnoxious teenager, I’ll read ‘BuzzFeed’ on my phone. But even that just leaves me feeling icky because I think for some reason my comfort zone is to just not really be in the loop about stuff like awards shows or things like that.
I think because of how big the women’s teams at Lyon and PSG are, the expectation on the team and the huge fan base – it leaves the door open for so much media. But I think that’s a good thing.
When the Jewish people, after nearly 2,000 years of exile, under relentless persecution, became a nation again on 14 May 1948 the ‘fig tree’ put forth its first leaves. Jesus said that this would indicate that He was ‘at the door,’ ready to return.

Pep Guardiola was technically one of the best coaches, a tremendous enrichment. But I had the feeling that he thinks only in the grid and leaves out the people and the outside.
One of the most painful parts of a breakup is having the feeling that your life is a story, and then the other person leaves and takes the story with them. And you’re left there without it.

Sen. Sessions’ commitment to public service is nearly unparalleled in Alabama history, and his departure from the Senate leaves tremendous shoes to fill.
When a film does well, everyone is usually happy and grateful, but for me, the impression the film leaves upon my mind is created during the process of filming; my memories are not a reflection of critics’ reviews and box office figures.
Nothing from nothing leaves nothing.
Madonna can still produce a catchy pop song, but she hasn’t expanded her artistic vocabulary since the 1990s. Her concerts are glitzy extravaganzas of special effects overkill. She leaves little space in them for emotional depth or unscripted rapport with the audience.
I use Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting CC Cream in place of foundation post-workout. I absolutely love that it’s quick, easy, and something I can use on the go. It evens out my skin tone, provides SPF 15 protection, and leaves my skin feeling breathable, healthy, and moisturized.
Even though The Cure helped pioneer the jangly, dance-oriented guitar and keyboard style it continues to embrace, there are other bands that now employ the post-punk style with greater flair. This leaves The Cure’s live presentation seeming a bit anonymous.
It’s unnatural to believe death usually has a beauty and a concordance and is usually a coming together of your life’s work. It leads to frustration for the patient. And it leaves grieving families convinced they did something wrong.
Sherwin B. Nuland
I was a stage actor for 20 years or so; I was leading men in classical things. ‘Shakespeare,’ you know. And now, I never play leading men. I’m that kamikaze comic that comes from the left, turns the table over, and leaves, or the hyper-intelligent yuppie scumbag if it’s a drama.
John Michael Higgins
What is the NCAA going to do a program if a kid leaves before two years. You can’t control it. The NBA is the one that has to control it.
Vice President Mondale devoted himself to championing the civil rights of all Americans and worked to ensure that everyone has opportunity to achieve success in their lives regardless of their socioeconomic background or upbringing. We are deeply grateful for his service to the United States and the legacy he leaves.
When a book leaves your hands, it belongs to God. He may use it to save a few souls or to try a few others, but I think that for the writer to worry is to take over God’s business.

Once you accept, truly accept, that stuff will happen to you and there is nothing you can do about it, stress miraculously leaves your life.
Every story takes its toll on me and leaves an impression on me.
I think of childhood as an explosion of creativity. For most people, growing up and earning a living means leaving all that behind. But an artist never leaves that behind. Edwin Mullhouse was my way of exploring the child as artist and, under the guise of childhood, something larger.
Even the distribution of rations leaves much to be desired; the fatigue party, well-intentioned and sympathetic though it be, often finds itself short of provisions.

A strong work of art really leaves people speechless. They feel a little angry because they don’t understand it.

There are no such things as Flowers there are only gladdened Leaves.
Day 1, when I was drafted to the Toronto Raptors, they had this stigma on them: Every guy leaves. Nobody wants to be here. Superstars, nobody wants to play in Canada. From Day 1, my whole mindset and approach to the game, being in Toronto, was I wanted to change that whole narrative to that whole organization.
It’s much more fun to be the person who comes into the room and lights the match. I get to be the force, the girl who always says or does something completely outrageous, and leaves everyone thinking, ‘What was that?’
The picture alone, without the written word, leaves half the story untold.
A strong emotion, especially if experienced for the first time, leaves a vivid memory of the scene where it occurred.

HB 2 leaves 90% of the children behind. The disconnect between this bill and the basic needs of Texas schoolchildren is appalling.
When you’re young and you first come onto the scene, you’re fearless. You just go for your shots and don’t really think about the consequences. But as you play on through years and years, you get punished for those misses, and gradually, that leaves scars. It dents your confidence a bit.
Unfortunately, considering that we Latinos are really big for movie companies when they have blockbuster releases or new cable shows, when it comes to the dynamic of supporting our own product, it leaves much to be desired.
Labor is work that leaves no trace behind it when it is finished, or if it does, as in the case of the tilled field, this product of human activity requires still more labor, incessant, tireless labor, to maintain its identity as a ‘work’ of man.
I don’t see a groundswell of people willing to raise gas taxes right now. That leaves fuel economy standards as the only effective tool we have as a nation to make a dent in our dangerous and ever growing consumption of oil.

I’m like a tree. My leaves might change color, but my roots are the same.
My career is like an artichoke. People might think that the leaves are tasty and buttered up and delicious, and they don’t even know that there’s something magical hidden at the base of it. There’s a whole other side of me that people didn’t know existed.
I’ve learnt that money comes very quickly, but it leaves even quicker.
I had six silly tattoos done when I was young and I bitterly regret them. I’ve thought about laser surgery, but that leaves a scar, so I’m just leaving them.
Payable On Death is actually a banking term, when someone passes on, what someone leaves behind. We related that to Jesus on the cross, and by his death, our sins are paid, the debt is paid. We have salvation if we want it. We got tired of saying Payable On Death, so we went to P.O.D.
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men the conviction and the will to carry on.

I pretty much try to stay in a constant state of confusion just because of the expression it leaves on my face.

I feel I’m able to get rid of any demons lurking in my psyche through my writing, which leaves me free to create all of this and to enjoy our family life, stepping away from all the fictional traumas and the dramas. If I write about family in crisis, then I won’t have to live through it, I guess.
I could have easily doubled my profit and made two records out of ‘Among the Leaves’, but the songs represented a certain period, and it made sense to get it out there as one piece.

Each has his past shut in him like the leaves of a book known to him by his heart, and his friends can only read the title.
One of the maddening ironies of writing books is that it leaves so little time for reading others’. My bedside is piled with books, but it’s duty reading: books for book research, books for review. The ones I pine for are off on a shelf downstairs.
There is a part of me that will forever want to be walking under autumn leaves, carrying a briefcase containing the works of Shakespeare and Yeats and a portable chess set. I will pass an old tree under which once on a summer night I lay on the grass with a fragrant young woman and we quoted e.e. cummings back and forth.
Zebra mussels like to hitch a ride on boats when they’re transferred from one body of water to another. It’s important to make sure to thoroughly clean your boat each time it leaves the water to ensure these invasive mussels are removed and that you are not spreading them to your next location.
Man is the only creature we know, that, when the term of his natural life is ended, leaves the memory of himself behind him.
When I first met YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, I was moderating a panel she was on for Harvard alums. We were both wrapping up our maternity leaves. She had just had her fifth child; I’d just had my second. We traded tips on maternity clothes, and I peppered her with questions about how she finds her balance.
Beauty is ever to the lonely mind a shadow fleeting; she is never plain. She is a visitor who leaves behind the gift of grief, the souvenir of pain.
Part of my journey is to say that the soul of the human being must be a massively intricate, wonderful creation that God has a respect for in ways that we do not and that leaves a huge amount of space to go explore.
William P. Young
In New England, the pin oak thrives, its leaves tipping to a thorny point in a good-natured impression of its evergreen neighbor, the holly bush.
War is devastating, and it leaves its scars for generations.
You can always tell in a movie when they are setting you up for something. If someone leaves an important object on the table and walks away, the camera will have some way of indicating that to you.
Freeze herbs by stem and all – don’t just freeze the leaves. It’s better to keep them sturdier. Put the stems and the leaves together into a plastic bag, and just wrap it up and freeze it like that.
We must ensure that while eliminating child labor in the export industry, we are also eliminating their labour from the informal sector, which is more invisible to public scrutiny – and thus leaves the children more open to abuse and exploitation.
When a big player leaves, a big player leaves. You’re at a big club like Liverpool, another big player will come in the future.
The tree I had in the garden as a child, my beech tree, I used to climb up there and spend hours. I took my homework up there, my books, I went up there if I was sad, and it just felt very good to be up there among the green leaves and the birds and the sky.
Pain leaves a mark, the degree depending on the person and the event.
I love movies. And I dig a great love story: the kind that wrecks me, then builds me back up and leaves me inspired. I write what I want to see.
I don’t think anyone leaves Las Vegas rejuvenated, their skin shining, their bank accounts glowing. No one leaves Vegas, like, ‘I didn’t make one mistake. That felt great. Back to work.’

Rakul Preet Singh
You know, to preserve our job-friendly climate the Texas legislature didn’t raise taxes this last legislative session while balancing their budget and maintaining their reserves – and might I add that our budget leaves $6 billion dollars in a rainy day fund?

The ultimate test of a moral society is the kind of world that it leaves to its children.
You, too, will be driven away from your native land and ancient domains as leaves are driven before the wintry storms. Sleep not longer, O Choctaws and Chickasaws, in false security and delusive hopes. Our broad domains are fast escaping from our grasp.
They say the music you listen to in your formative years stays with you and leaves an impression for the rest of your life. For me, the things that I fell in love with happened in the ’70s, when artists were nurtured by record companies and it wasn’t about singles.
In my personal life, dark material is kind of an emptying out – it leaves more room for light. If I’m writing a particularly awful scene, something is released in the process.
As performers grow older, I reckon there are two ways they can go. They can either be up there, playing more deeply from their guts than ever, or they can be phoning it in so crassly that it leaves a lump in your throat as you leave the venue at the end of the show.
With its distinctly rural feel, the New York band Woods makes an ideal soundtrack for balmy walks amidst mammoth trees and crunchy beds of dead leaves.
Offering unequal leaves just reinforces the longstanding notion that parenting responsibilities aren’t equal, and that doesn’t help anyone.
I don’t ever want it to be about me. A friend of mine told me, ‘The difference between fame and notoriety is fame is when people know you, and notoriety is when people know your work.’ The first one is not respectable, but the second one is, because that leaves a legacy.
John Sayles is good. He’s like a good thoroughbred owner – he leaves the trainers alone.
D. B. Sweeney
I grew up in New Mexico, and the older I get, I have less need for contemporary culture and big cities and all the stuff we are bombarded with.

There is no time for cut-and-dried monotony. There is time for work. And time for love. That leaves no other time!

I had always planned to make a large painting of the early spring, when the first leaves are at the bottom of the trees, and they seem to float in space in a wonderful way. But the arrival of spring can’t be done in one picture.
So much is made about the beginnings of ballet careers, the rosebud, and then once the petals and leaves start falling off, is it beautiful anymore? Some people think it is; some people don’t. The expectation is to focus on the very beautiful parts, not the ending.
I have never connected with ‘Gone With the Wind.’ ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ leaves me cold.
Once I fall in love, finishing a story leaves a hole in my heart. The characters become your friends.
Sarah J. Maas
Jose Mourinho and I get along well. I’ve lots of respect for him. He gives me a lot of confidence. After a bad game, he dares to say, ‘We have played with 10 today,’ but that’s it. At moments like that, he leaves me alone.
I’m just delighted to be living, to be able to have a simple conversation, to feel a ray of sunlight on my skin and listen to the breeze move through the leaves of a tree.
Consumerism is the reason Christmas has morphed into a hollow shopping ritual that leaves too many families with debt hangovers and an empty feeling inside.
Focusing on the gifted always leaves people behind, and portrays working-class people as a repellent hinterland that ‘gifted’ and ‘talented’ children need rescuing from.
Logic is the last scientific ingredient of Philosophy; its extraction leaves behind only a confusion of non-scientific, pseudo problems.
In the U.S., we are free to speak our minds and to spend money without being forced to reveal our identities – except when using the Web. Browsing the Web leaves digital tracks everywhere in the form of log files, and anyone who hosts a Web site can be easily traced.
As a kid, to have adults think you’re valuable enough to perform certain tasks gives you a real sense of confidence. Cutting the lawn. Raking leaves. Shoveling snow. Walking the dog for our neighbor Mrs. Trumm – who was a German professor at Michigan – for 25 cents.
I’ve started using organic coconut oil to remove my makeup! It removes eye makeup so well and leaves it feeling hydrated and nourished!
People have quite a simple idea about ‘Anna Karenina.’ They feel that the novel is entirely about a young married woman who falls in love with a cavalry officer and leaves her husband after much agony, and pays the price for that.
‘House of Leaves’ is certainly about the unsettling nature of fear – and it was my aim to address that – but it’s also about recovering from fear.
Mark Z. Danielewski
Authors can only soft sell the environment. Create a wonderful story around the environment involving the characters that leaves a lasting impression on the reader’s mind.
When an artist leaves his work to amuse people, he loses his time and their respect. If people are to be amused by artists, it must be by employing them in their legitimate occupation.
William Morris Hunt
My hubby makes a mean salmon steak at the grill, but he leaves all the sides up to me. I love to grill and roast vegetables. I also experiment with baking instead of frying some things, like onion rings. I even make biscuits with coconut oil these days.
One of the things I like so much about ‘Goodnight Moon’ is the way it leaves room for ambiguity.
Everything that we experience every day leaves a long-lasting impression.
I insist to this day that if you read the screenplay to ‘The Queen,’ it leaves you in no doubt that we considered her an isolated, out-of-touch, cold, emotionally inaccessible, overprivileged, deluded woman, heading an institution that should immediately be dismantled in any free and fair society.
Any time guys move to ‘Raw’ and ‘SmackDown,’ I think that is what has kept NXT so relevant and has kept the fans so invested because they are now conditioned that whoever leaves or comes in, NXT, as a product, is going to give really exciting sports entertainment every time.
The women I play don’t sit in the corner eating lettuce leaves and talking about what designer shoes they have.
As an actor, if you have done theatre, the magic of it never leaves you.
It doesn’t take a language long to disappear once the spirit to continue with it leaves its community. In fact, the speed of the decline has been one of the main findings of recent linguistic research.
With a smartphone in tow and a playlist humming, a runner may miss the crunch of leaves underfoot, the enthusiastic cheers of benevolent strangers, or even her own breath. And, for many runners, leaving the mobile device at home is the most liberating part of the sport.
After being away from it for so long, it’s really nice to go out and have 10- or 15,000 people show up and enjoy it. It leaves you with a very good feeling.
This disease leaves people bedridden. I’ve gone through phases where I couldn’t roll over in bed. I couldn’t speak. To have it called ‘fatigue’ is a gross misnomer.
Something like your parents divorcing never quite leaves you. What you thought was real isn’t real anymore, and that changes your perspective. It makes you more wary but also means you are better equipped to deal with challenges.
Everybody that’s an actor leaves it for a while ’cause they ain’t got a job.
There is simply no plausible construction of the known evidence that leaves out Novak either providing a proffer through his lawyer of what he would say if he testified or having testified directly.
We’ve always had our hardcore fans. But the general public has a love-hate thing about the ‘Kinks.’ It always leaves people with a question mark on their heads.
To me, soul music is anything that is made from the heart, and therefore moves the listener; it’s not overly self-aware, and leaves room for the listener to make their own conclusions.
I’ve had success, but I’m still haunted by the fear of being hungry. Once you’ve lived it it never leaves you.
The colour of a British wood in autumn is predominantly yellow. There are relatively few European trees which have red leaves in the autumn. But there are splashes of crimson or rust-red colours from a few indigenous trees, like the rowan, as well as from introduced species, like the North American red oak.
The breadfruit is a superb tree, about 60 feet high, with deep green, shining leaves, a foot broad, sharply and symmetrically cut, worthy, from their exceeding beauty of form, to take the place of the acanthus in architectural ornament, and throwing their pale green fruit into delicate contrast.
For my band’s debut tour in 2011, we road-tripped across the country in a 15-passenger van. It was the first time I’d left Alabama. I drove through scenery I’d only ever seen in calendars: auburn leaves falling in Vermont, the sun setting over purple mountains in Arizona. It was incredible.
It always seems to me so odd that when a man dies, he takes out with him all the knowledge that he has got in his lifetime whilst sowing his wild oats or winning successes. And he leaves his sons or younger brothers to go through all the work of learning it over again from their own experience.
When somebody leaves Match.com or Chemistry.com, they ask you why you left. One box you can check is, ‘I found somebody.’ Between 15 and 20 percent of people check that box.
Century-old records are the closest thing we have to a time machine. To listen to the voice of Theodore Roosevelt or the piano playing of Claude Debussy is to feel the years falling away like autumn leaves from a maple tree.
There is such a thing as old emotional pain living inside you. It is an accumulation of painful life experience that was not fully faced and accepted in the moment it arose. It leaves behind an energy form of emotional pain.
Fiction leaves us so much work to do, allows the individual so much input; you have to see, you have to hear, you have to taste the madeleine, and while you are seemingly passive in your chair, you have to travel.
I personally don’t think that blood ties should be something that signifies so much more than anything else. I understand perfectly when somebody leaves their family for good.
Too many American families go bankrupt from healthcare expenses, and low wage workers have to hold two or three jobs just to make ends meet, which leaves many young children without any hope of having a pre-K education – the most important start to a good education and a path out of poverty.
Put a love note in his shaving kit before he leaves on a business trip.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
I’m fond of science fiction. But not all science fiction. I like science fiction where there’s a scientific lesson, for example – when the science fiction book changes one thing but leaves the rest of science intact and explores the consequences of that. That’s actually very valuable.
Regardless of who leaves and who stays, Ring of Honor is going to continue to be a healthy, growing, successful pro wrestling promotion.
To wear this shirt, especially with the West Ham badge on it – it takes an honest player, hard-working, a player that leaves everything on the pitch and plays for the crest on the shirt.
I will throw all my best efforts into it, my thoughts and political observations, but ultimately I want to create a narrative that keeps you turning the pages and leaves you with a sense that this thing has a reason for being there.
If music leaves any impression at all, it does so without regard to stylistic issues.
South Africa never leaves one indifferent. Its history, its population, its landscapes and cultures – all speak to the visitor, to the student, to the friend of Africa.
If you’re known as a dramatic actor it helps you a lot. Even though to me it’s simpler, it leaves a deeper impression on the public.
The thing that fiction can do is look from the inside out rather than from the outside in. Even memoir leaves me somewhat frustrated. I think now we need a poet to uncover what isn’t on the surface.
Mining created Chile. The story of men who go down into the mountain and chip away at minerals in the darkness and then suffer an accident that leaves them at the mercy of that darkness is part of the DNA of Chile, an integral part of the country’s history.
Some dog I got too. We call him Egypt. Because in every room he leaves a pyramid.
Some people have dogs… I like leaves. I like plants, and I like flowers too. Ecstasy is big in my life.
I’m one of those wrestlers that leaves everything to the audience and to the fans. I never plan anything, and you will never see Alberto Patron planning in the back what he is going to do in the match.
Alberto Del Rio
It’s hard when your father’s the coach. Sometimes you don’t know where one leaves off and the other begins.
