Quote Left 'Against his better judgment, the big game hunter is talked into taking both his wife AND her mother along on one of his expeditions. It does not go well. The mother-in-law is, if anything, harder to get along with in the wilds than she was in the city. And to make matters worse, she won't even abide by the simple camp rules designed to keep the safari safe. One night after dinner, the hunter's wife realizes her mother is missing. Panicked, she rushes to her husband and begs him to institute a search. He sighs, and together they set out. But before they've gone far, they hear throaty growling. Soon they come upon a small clearing in which the mother-in-law stands, backed up against thick, seemingly impenetrable jungle brush, and facing a huge male lion. The wife whispers urgently, 'What are we going to do?' 'Nothing,' responds her husband. 'The lion got himself into this mess, now let him get himself out of it.'' Quote Right
Quote Left I leaned over and said, 'sorry about that,' but Lennon didn't even move and said it was all right. I said, 'you know we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you guys, The Beatles,' and he said, 'Everything we got, we stole from Chuck Berry.' And that was my first brush with The Beatles. Quote Right

Quote Left Its the sense of touch. Any real city, you walk, you're bumped, brush past people. In LA, no one touches you. We're always behind metal and glass. I think we miss that touch so much that we crash into each other just to feel something. Quote Right
Quote Left Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures. Art Quote Right
Quote Left We can learn to rejoice in even the smallest blessings our life holds. It is easy to miss our own good fortune; often happiness comes in ways we don't even notice. It's like a cartoon I saw of an astonished-looking man saying, ' What was that ?' The caption below read, ' Bob experiences a moment of well-being .' The ordinariness of our good fortune can make it hard to catch. The key is to be here, fully connected with the moment, paying attention to the details of ordinary life. By taking care of ordinary things - our pots and pans, our clothing, our teeth - we rejoice in them. When we scrub a vegetable or brush our hair, we are expressing appreciation: friendships toward ourselves and toward the living quality that is found in everything. This combination of mindfulness and appreciation connects us fully with reality and brings us joy. Quote Right
Quote Left A hair in the head is worth two in the brush. Quote Right
Quote Left When your Mom is mad at your dad, don't let her brush your hair. Quote Right
Quote Left As she came up to the arch Elizabeth saw with a start that it was written on. She went closer. She peered at the stone. There were names on it. Every grain of the surface had been carved with British names; their chiselled capitals rose from the level of her ankles to the height of the great arch itself; on every surface of every column as far as her eyes eyes could see there were names teeming, reeling, over surfaces of yards, of hundreds of yards, over furlongs of stone. She moved through the space beneath the arch where the man was sweeping. She found the other pillas identically marked, their faces obliterated on all sides by the names that were carved on them. 'Who are these, these ...?; She gestured with her hand.' 'These?' The man with the brush sounded surprised. 'The lost.' 'Men who died in battle?' 'No. The lost, the ones they did not find. The others are in cemetries.' 'These are just the ... unfound?' She looked at the vault above her head and then around in panic at the endless writing, as though the surface of the sky had been papered in footnotes. When she could speak again, she said, 'from the whole war?' The man shook his head. 'Just these fields.' He gestured with his arm. Elizabeth went and sat on the steps on the other side of the monument. Beneath her was a formal garden with some rows of white headstones, each with a tended plant or flower at its base, each cleaned and beautiful in the weak winter sunlight. 'Nobody told me.' She ran her fingers with their red-painted nails back through her thick dark hair. 'My God, nobody told me. Quote Right
Quote Left If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom, but nobody beats me.' Quote Right
Quote Left ...it does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds... Quote Right
Quote Left There are lots of things that you can brush under the carpet about yourself until you're faced with somebody whose needs won't be put off. Quote Right
Quote Left As the end of the century approaches, all our culture is like the culture of flies at the beginning of winter. Having lost their agility, dreamy and demented, they turn slowly about the window in the first icy mists of morning. They give themselves a last wash and brush-up, their oscillated eyes roll, and they fall down the curtains. Quote Right
Quote Left 'Little fly, thy summer's play My thoughtless hand has brushed away. Am not I a fly like thee? Or art not thou a man like me? For I dance and drink and sing, Till some blind hand shall brush my wing!' Quote Right
Quote Left The value of these well-equipped and highly trained men and women was demonstrated last spring when dry, windy conditions spawned brush fires in every county, ... These grants are a sound investment in an invaluable service. Quote Right
Quote Left Most people, sometime in their lives, stumble across truth. Most jump up, brush themselves off, and hurry on about their business as if nothing had happened. Quote Right
Quote Left It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds. Quote Right
Quote Left Because I have conducted my own operas and love sheep-dogs; because I generally dress in tweeds, and sometimes, at winter afternoon concerts, have even conducted in them; because I was a militant suffragette and seized a chance of beating time to The March of the Women from the window of my cell in Holloway Prison with a tooth-brush; because I have written books, spoken speeches, broadcast, and don't always make sure that my hat is on straight; for these and other equally pertinent reasons, in a certain sense I am well known.

Quote Left A poet needs a pen, a painter a brush, and a filmmaker an army Quote Right

Quote Left The only comfort comes in thinking about how nice it was to know them, and how nice it was to brush against goodness for a season. Quote Right
Quote Left Our cravings canno't be comforted by our creativity, although we like to think they can. A million words after writing 'Look Homeward Angel' Thomas Wolfe was still tormented. After a million notes, Beethoven was not happy, after a million brush strokes, Van Gogh cut off his ear. Quote Right
Quote Left Is civilization only a higher form of idolatry, that man should bow down to a flesh-brush, to flannels, to baths, diet, exercise, and air? Quote Right
Quote Left The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word ' crisis .' One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger - but recognize the opportunity. Quote Right
Quote Left The first thing I do in the morning is brush my teeth and sharpen my tongue. Quote Right
Quote Left After my recent brush with voicelessness, I thought I'd share with you a few thoughts about speech. Don't take it lightly my friends. If music is the pathway to the heart as Voltaire suggested, then speech is the pathway to other people. Live in silence and you live alone. Quote Right

Quote Left I am a great painter In this game called life So I paint it in colours that suit my taste And when the brush slips and paints out of place I correct that mistake To a whole different shade Quote Right
Quote Left When you're at that episode of your life, when you have lost the strength and the desire to take another step, when death brushes your heels and friends and family betray you, when the reflection in the mirror frightens you, when you think it's the end of the road; stop, think, you have the power in you to bounce back, you are fortified with inner strength to resist, fight back and win. Take courage, today is not the day to give up on your dream. Quote Right
Quote Left I love the "brushed kiss".... the "butterfly moment", when magic ignites a fire that can never go out... Quote Right
Quote Left I love the "brushed kiss".... the "butterfly moment", when magic ignites a fire that can never go out... Quote Right
Quote Left I look up into the sky. As a paint brush swirls half heartedly around in my mind. I see a family of robins flying by, silhouettes of past lovers in the clouds, castles of the working class, and warmth. All the things I dream of, wish for, dwell on. And don't have. My canvas is blue. The pigments mixed with tears. The sun now setting. Time is my enemy. Beyond the horizon an army of depression is at battle. My soldiers are blue. Quote Right
Quote Left Life is like a canvas, the variety brush strokes and colours depict your life experiences. Quote Right
Quote Left Truth is a surgeon's scalpel, the brush that cards the wool, the balances of Justice's scales. Quote Right
Quote Left Truth is not a jewel that we find it a few bits at a time. It is a single glorious figure, found when all the veneer of worldly things are brushed away, when we stand revealed before it, beholding the breathtaking beauty of it, and all we can do is stare. Quote Right
Quote Left When other people want you to stay miserable from a bad experience that's when you brush it off and creat a good experience. Quote Right
Quote Left Be a brush. Paint a picture, and leave a legacy. Show the world that no matter if the death of blackness, or the blood of red, the calm green of nature or the crashing blue of waters rising out of a riverbed, that you can use all the world throws at you to paint a beautiful picture of an image that has never been thought of and a story that has never been told.
