Geoff Davis

My youngest son has a very clear idea of what he wants to be when he grows up: he wants to be Indiana Jones, Batman and Jack Sparrow. Yes, all three at the same time. So he basically wants to be an archaeologist who wears tights and fights crimes on pirate ships. That’s pretty cool, huh?

Sheena Iyengar

Louis Farrakhan
You built a factory out there, good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads that the rest of us paid for. You hired workers that the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for.

For any writer, the ability to look at a sentence and see what’s superfluous, what can be altered, revised, expanded, and, especially, cut, is essential. It’s satisfying to see that sentence shrink, snap into place, and ultimately emerge in a more polished form: clear, economical, sharp.

John Ajvide Lindqvist

Harriet Harman
Very early, it became clear to me that East Germany could not function.
Angela Merkel

Werner Heisenberg
A charlatan makes obscure what is clear; a thinker makes clear what is obscure.
Hugh Kingsmill

For values or guiding principles to be truly effective they have to be verbs.

Lauren DeStefano
I’ll say she looks as clear as morning roses newly washed with dew.
William Shakespeare
The big issue is whether the United States will succeed in its venture of reshaping the Middle East. It is not clear to me that using military force is the way to do it. We should not have gone into Iraq. But we have.
Milton Friedman

Alan Greenspan
I looked up, but had to crane my head back, leaving the features above me wrong-side up. The clear green eyes were the same, and, unfortunately, so was the spiky blond hair. It didn’t look any better from this angle, I decided.
Karen Chance
It is quite clear that the German and Chinese revolutions in case of victory would have changed the face of Europe and Asia, and perhaps of the whole world.
Leon Trotsky
I’m an infant with Shakespeare; I’m kind of learning how to walk. I am trying to decipher the code, you know? I do my research. And I get a clear understanding of what the language is. It is a tremendous process I have to go through as I am sure all actors do, finding the gems hidden in his language.
Ruben Santiago-Hudson
Let me be clear: There is no stronger advocate for civil liberties in the Senate than myself.
Saxby Chambliss
I had no idea, but I realized that probably thirty to forty percent of my brainpower was taken up with the questions that I couldn’t answer- because I had no direction. When I got clear on exactly where I wanted to go, and set the goals to get there, my mind calmed down.
Chip Wilson
Before there was any talk of a movie, people would sometimes ask me what actors I would imagine playing these characters. And the only thing I could ever say is: I have such a clear idea of these characters that they’d have to play themselves.
Michael Cunningham
I love when things are transparent, free and clear of all inhibition and judgment.
Pharrell Williams
I want to make a clear distinction between people who take acting seriously and people who call themselves actors because theyve been on reality TV or something.
Damian Lewis
Even when I was little and going on auditions, it was clear who was there because they wanted to be there, and who was there because their stage parents were making them be there. There was a major difference.
Wil Wheaton
We cannot escape the clear fact that what is going to win in this world is reason, if this ever becomes a reasonable world.
W. E. B. Du Bois
Have you set high standards in the past that make it clear what level of performance you demand?
Tom Peters
If you’re a politician, you might want to learn the Buddhist way of negotiation. Restoring communication and bringing back reconciliation is clear and concrete in Buddhism.
Thich Nhat Hanh
It is now abundantly clear that the Clintons set up a business to profit from public office. They sold access and specific actions by and really for I guess the making of large amounts of money.
Donald Trump
What is absolutely clear is that we have, with the U.S., an extradition treaty which is important, I believe it is an important treaty, for both sides, the United States and the United Kingdom. It is a treaty that I believe is balanced and we work on that basis.
Theresa May
I came to a clear conclusion, and it is a universal one: To live, to struggle, to be in love with life–in love with all life holds, joyful or sorrowful–is fulfillment. The fullness of life is open to all of us.
Betty Smith
Give me strength, not to be better than my enemies, but to defeat my greatest enemy, the doubts within myself. Give me strength for a straight back and clear eyes, so when life fades, as the setting sun, my spirit may come to you without shame.
P. C. Cast
I’ve heard it said that there are men who read in books to convince themselves there is a God. I know not but man may so deform his works in the settlements, as to leave that which is so clear in the wilderness a matter of doubt among traders and priests.
James F. Cooper
A brave man is clear in his discourse, and keeps close to truth.
If Goddess religion is not to become mindless idiocy, we must win clear of tendency of magic to become supertition. Magic – and among its branches I include psychology as its purpose to describe and change consciousness – is an art.
I recognized that information was, in many respects, like a public good, and it was this insight that made it clear to me that it was unlikely that the private market would provide efficient resource allocations whenever information was endogenous.
Joseph Stiglitz
At the edge of the cliffs, the wind is a smack, and D-day becomes wildly clear: climbing that cutting edge into the bullets.
John Vinocur
To be simple means to make a choice about what’s important, and let go of all the rest. When we are able to do this, our vision expands, our heads clear, and we can better see the details of our lives in all their incredible wonder and beauty.
John Daido Loori
The autumn air is clear,
The autumn moon is bright.
Fallen leaves gather and scatter,
The jackdaw perches and starts anew.
We think of each other- when will we meet?
This hour, this night, my feelings are hard.
Li Bai
You have to live with your product, you have to know it through and through, you have to look at it, understand it, love it then, and only then, you can crystallize in one clear thought, one single theme, what must be conveyed about the product to the consumer.
William Bernbach
We had so many different presidents, including Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln – there were other founders like Hamilton, Adams – who made it very clear that the courts can’t make a law. The Constitution is expressly clear that that’s a power reserved to Congress.
Mike Huckabee
What women will say to other women grumbling in their kitchens and complaining and gossiping or what they make clear in their masochism is often the last thing they will say aloud – a man may overhear. Women are the cowards they are because they have been semi-slaves for so long.
Doris Lessing
Great art is clear thinking about mixed feelings.
W. H. Auden
As machines become more and more efficient and perfect, so it will become clear that imperfection is the greatness of man.
Ernst Fischer
All those who offer an opinion on any doubtful point should first clear their minds of every sentiment of dislike, friendship, anger or pity.
If after so much effort and prayer, the matter is not successful, it will be a clear sign that God does not will it.
Vincent de Paul
a certain red cardinal sounded like a little bottle being filled up, up, up with some clear liquid.
Elizabeth Enright
There are times when things are clear in your head and your heart and everything comes all aligned and it’s easy and it just feels good to do something. But most of the time it’s not like that. Most of the time there’s conflict between your head and your heart.
Sheila Heti
I wouldn’t say I’m bigger than Jesus. If I had to guess, I’d say probably, yeah, but as far as I know, the bible is never clear on this.
Zach Braff
There is an unseen sweetness in the stomach’s emptiness. We are lutes. When the sound box is filled, no music can come forth. When the brain and the belly burn from fasting, every moment a new song rises out of the fire. The mists clear, and a new vitality makes you spring up the steps before you . . .
I’m not the hero, Mac. Never have been. Never will be. Let us be perfectly clear: I’m not the antihero, either, so quit waiting to discover my hidden potential. There’s nothing to redeem me.
Karen Marie Moning
Sometimes I find myself exploring very different and new fields but I have a very clear vision of what I would like to do and the questions I would like to raise.
Dror Benshetrit
He had been alone in the world and empty for so long. But she filled him full, and so he believed everything that had been taken out of him might have been for a purpose. To clear space for something better.
Charles Frazier
Israel can’t make peace without the clear support of the United States.
Alan Dershowitz
As I’d observed, it was clear that Rose was willing to do anything and fight anyone to protect her friend. I admired that—I admired that a lot—but it didn’t stop me from striking out to block her.
Richelle Mead
What the Soviet Union was to the ideology of Marxism, the Low-Fat Campaign is to the ideology of nutritionism—its supreme test and, as now is coming clear, its most abject failure.
Michael Pollan
But I would make it unambiguously clear that we are going to withdraw, and if Iraq falls into civil war and if all these unhappy things occur, we’re just going to have to accept them.
William Odom
We see now that infringement of freedom is necessary with regard to the opponents of the revolution. At a time of revolution we cannot allow freedom for the enemies of the people and of the revolution. That is a surely clear, irrefutable conclusion.
Nikolai Bukharin
I also would have steered clear of politics. I’m grateful for the opportunities God gave me to minister to people in high places; people in power have spiritual and personal needs like everyone else, and often they have no one to talk to. But looking back I know I sometimes cros­sed the line, and I wouldn’t do that now.
Billy Graham
I usually have a very clear idea of where I want a song to go, sometimes very specific notes, but I’m generally open to suggestions.
John Lennox
I think that it’s always appropriate for Americans and for American foreign policy to make clear why we feel that self-government is most compatible with peace, the well-being of people, and human dignity.
Jeane Kirkpatrick
If it were any other way, it would be easy. And if it were any other way, everyone would do it and your work would ultimately be devalued. The yin and yang are clear: without people pushing against your quest to do something worth talking about, it’s unlikely it would be worth the journey. Persist.
Seth Godin
It is an unfortunate thing for the Christian to be melancholy. If there is any man in the world that has a right to have a bright, clear face and a flashing eye, it is the man whose sins are forgiven him, who is saved with God’s salvation.
Charles Spurgeon
Whenever conscience speaks with a divided, uncertain, and disputed voice, it is not the voice of God. Descend still deeper into yourself, until you hear nothing but a clear, undivided voice, a voice which does away with doubt and brings with it persuasion, light, and serenity.
Henri Frederic Amiel
I support capital punishment. But let’s be clear: It’s a decision for each state to make.
Ted Cruz
Everything in Irenaeus is bathed in a warm and radiant joy, a wise and majestic gentleness. His words of struggle are hard as iron and crystal clear, … so penetrating that they cannot fail to enlighten the unbiased observer.
Hans Urs von Balthasar
Each individual is unique in ordinary life. The uniqueness becomes even more sharp and clear, crystal clear, when the person becomes enlightened – because only then his pure genius, his pure individuality, uncontaminated, unpolluted, is revealed.
I have introduced a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and make it clear that the Congress and state legislatures do have the ability and the power to regulate and get corporate funding out of political campaigns.
Bernie Sanders
In reality the workings of your governing system are opaque and covert, while hiding in the chattering spotlight of an ostensible transparency, even though the ultimate objective is clear.
Breyten Breytenbach
When my mind is clear, I feel like I can give more of myself to those around me and hopefully bring light and joy and an infectious kind of energy to inspire them to do whatever they want to do. That’s really the key behind it all.
Julianne Hough
The voice has to be very clear at all times in order to convey the emotion.
Ednita Nazario
It is difficult to think of a major industry that AI will not transform. This includes healthcare, education, transportation, retail, communications, and agriculture. There are surprisingly clear paths for AI to make a big difference in all of these industries.
Andrew Ng
We’re in a declared war, but unless were clear about who the enemy is, we’ll waste our time fighting enemies that aren’t enemies at all. There’s only one enemy and no matter what people do, say or react people are never the enemy. The enemy is our only enemy.
John Wimber
When we have ceased to love the stench of the human animal, either in others or in ourselves, then are we condemned to misery, and clear thinking can begin.
Cyril Connolly
I hope,” he replies softly, “to get to know you again. If you are open to it. There is a fog around you that I would like to clear away.
Marie Lu
The 1928 Republican Convention opened with a prayer. If the Lord can see His way clear to bless the Republican Party the way it’s been carrying on, then the rest of us ought to get it without even asking.
Will Rogers
If you want to be clear, act.
Marcus Buckingham
My dear friend, clear your mind of cant.
Samuel Johnson
Capital punishment? It makes no sense as a policy: It’s not a deterrent, and economically it’s a disaster. It’s very clear that there are innocent people on death row. And if I put an innocent person to death, that’s murder.
Tony Goldwyn
The Americans are very clear, and obsessed with nouns.
Fiona Shaw
Be sure not to discuss your hero’s state of mind. Make it clear from his actions.
Anton Chekhov
To have his path made clear for him is the aspiration of every human being in our beclouded and tempestuous existence.
Joseph Conrad
Far more often [than asking the question ‘Is it true?’] they [children] have asked me: ‘Was he good? Was he wicked?’ That is, they were far more concerned to get the Right side and the Wrong side clear. For that is a question equally important in History and in Faerie.
J. R. R. Tolkien
That sometimes clear … and sometimes vague stuff … which is … mathematics.
Imre Lakatos
I wanted to clear up the slum of legs… I wanted to make the chair all one thing again.
Eero Saarinen
The lesson is clear: As impractical as it may sound, the safest and most secure way to lead your life is to follow your dream.
Douglas Bloch
One of the things that’s clear to me from interviews that I’ve read is that the more popular successful jazz musicians had audiences above and beyond the music community.
Branford Marsalis
War may claim for itself the power to destroy and to clear the ground. It can never construct or create. It is not the means by which ideals are imposed. There is ultimately no way of combating a wrong idea but the setting forth of a right one.
Maude Royden
One must be aware that one is continually being tested in what one wishes most in order to make clear whether one’s heart is on earth or in heaven.
Vilayat Inayat Khan
Hatred is the most clear- sighted, next to genius.
Claude Bernard
Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.
John Peter Zenger
We must have a clear head and a clear-cut stand to confidently boycott those trains of thoughts that attempt to Westernise China, separate China and bring chaos to China.
Zhou Yongkang
Good farming, clear thinking, right living.
Henry A. Wallace
I think it’s one of the Times’ problems that they haven’t made it clear to readers what various formats mean.
Daniel Okrent
Enlightenment occurs when your mind merges with nirvana, with what Tibetans call the Dharmakaya, the clear light of reality, which is the highest plane of transcendental wisdom and perfect understanding.
Frederick Lenz
Immigration policy should be generous; it should be fair; it should be flexible. With such a policy we can turn to the world, and to our own past, with clean hands and a clear conscience.
John F. Kennedy
I was clear: “I don’t want to play businessmen with bifocal glasses and cameras, so if you’re going to give me an Asian bad guy to play, then I’m going to give you the baddest Asian bad guy you’ve ever seen, and you’re not going to forget that I was in the film.”
Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa
One thing I have clear is that I don’t want to work for money anymore.
Antonio Banderas
Sure, he was lonely. Sure, they had a lot in common. Sure, he was attracted to her, and it was clear she felt the same about him.
Tim LaHaye
Eventually you will go into samadhi. Samadhi is a very advanced meditation. You dissolve into the clear light of eternity again and again.
Frederick Lenz
Achievement happens when we pursue and attain what we want. Success comes when we are in clear pursuit of Why we want it.
Simon Sinek
Our mission in this new century is clear. For good or ill, we live in an interdependent world. We can’t escape each other. Therefore, we have to spend our lives building a global community of shared responsibilities, shared values, shared benefits.
William J. Clinton
To be clear, I worry as much about the impact of the Internet as anyone else. I worry about shortening attention spans, the physical cost of sedentary “surfing” and the potential for coarsening discourse as millions of web pages compete for attention by appealing to our base instincts.
Andrew Weil
There is a separation – a very clear separation – between the judiciary, the legal system, and the political system in this country, and that’s why Labor has a problem with the issue of mandatory sentencing as a principle.
Anthony Albanese
My teams have always been dominant about having the ball but having the ball to create opportunities. That’s always been the clear way of my work.
Brendan Rodgers
After PyeongChang and after the tours, I was searching for different fulfillment. And then when my fiancee walked into my life, it became clear the direction I wanted to head.
Scott Moir
Whenever I write about mental health and integrative therapies, I am accused of being prejudiced against pharmaceuticals. So let me be clear – integrative medicine is the judicious application of both conventional and evidence-based natural therapies.
Andrew Weil
I still play that guitar. It’s a Martin D-18 with a clear pick guard. I’ve played that guitar on and off my TV shows for nearly 50 years.
Andy Griffith
When someone gets a job, it better be clear what they did to get it.
Mark V. Hurd
Stick to the man who looks out of the window and tries to understand the world. Keep clear of the man who looks in at the window and tries to understand you.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
In Paradise, as always: that which causes the sin and that which recognizes it for what it is are one. The clear conscience is Evil, which is so entirely victorious that it does not any longer consider the leap from left to right necessary.
Franz Kafka
When I was coming up, it was a dangerous world, and you knew exactly who they were. It was us vs them, and it was clear who them was. Today, we are not so sure who the they are, but we know they’re there.
George W. Bush
A child’s eyes, those clear wells of undefiled thoughtВ—what on earth can be more beautiful? Full of hope, love and curiosity, they meet your own.
Caroline Norton
The homosexual agenda represents a clear and present danger to virtually every fundamental right given to us by our Creator and enshrined for us in our Constitution.
Bryan Fischer
Now will never leave. It is always here. Like a clear canvas, it awaits our painting.
Swami Satchidananda
Growing up in the ’50s and being in the ’60s, in that revolutionary time space, I thought freedom was what I was looking for. Slowly but surely, it became clear that the last thing I was interested in was freedom. Because if you’re going to be free, you have to be free from something.
Anthony Braxton
How many wells of science there are in whose depths there is nothing but clear water!
Jean Antoine Petit-Senn
In this way, if you continue all the time in the way we have described from the beginning, it will become as easy and clear for you to remain in contemplation in your inward and recollected state, as to live in the natural state.
Albertus Magnus
There are clear cases in which ‘understanding’ literally applies and clear cases in which it does not apply; and these two sorts of cases are all I need for this argument.
John Searle
The goodness or badness, justice or injustice, of laws varies of necessity with the constitution of states. This, however, is clear, that the laws must be adapted to the constitutions. But if so, true forms of government will of necessity have just laws, and perverted forms of government will have unjust laws.
We were not meant to mask ourselves before our fellow-beings, but to be, through our human forms, true and clear utterances of the spirit within. Since God gave us these bodies, they must have been given us as guides to Him and revealers of Him.
Lucy Larcom
Well I’ve already made it clear that it’s a matter for individuals in exercising their own judgement, their own consciences to speak freely on matters of policy.
Ron Davies
Our government should do everything it can to ensure the successful prosecution of those responsible for the murders of U.S. citizens abroad. It should provide resources as needed, and it should make it clear to the authorities in Belgrade that inaction does have repercussions on bilateral relations.
Tim Bishop
But the reasonableness of this command to obey parents, is clear, and easily understood by children, even when quite young.
Noah Webster
When the mind is totally still, there’s only bliss. I got a piece of that reality from my first yoga class, from smiling and breathing in every difficult pose. I went, “Oh my God! I’m clear! I love this!”
Russell Simmons
Avoid contradiction. Clear institutional identity helps give you the competitive edge.
Marty Sklar
I think I have been perfectly clear in saying that I hope Canadians do elect a majority government. I think this cycle of election after election, minority after minority is beginning to put some of the country’s interests in serious jeopardy.
Stephen Harper
I’m not a fan of endless mystery in storytelling – I like to know where the mythology’s going; I like to get there in an exciting, fast-paced way – enough that there’s a really clear, aggressive direction to where it’s going, to pay off mystery and reward the audiences loyalty.
Eric Kripke
Become very clear about your intentions and desires, know that you deserve them, and then firmly put your foot down to the universe commanding these changes (while simultaneously surrendering control over how this will occur). All the doors will open for you as a result!
Doreen Virtue
You can’t believe how hard it is for people to be simple, how much they fear being simple. They worry that if they’re simple, people will think they’re simpleminded. In reality, of course, it’s just the reverse. Clear, tough-minded people are the most simple.
Jack Welch
The handover of power to [Dmitry] Medvedev was rather painless, everybody thought that the waves would calm automatically. By now, it’s quite clear that [Vladimir] Putin doesn’t want to relinquish the levers of power.
Garry Kasparov
At the front of my home, in the garden, is a huge piece of clear quartz.
Miranda Kerr
It’s so clear cut with a comedian – you have that reflex action, whereby you laugh or you don’t. And so you either love us or you simply cannot see why people are laughing.
Jimmy Carr
If I have a clear spot in my schedule, I like to tackle the heavy scenes that require the heightened emotion and focus of a long writing session. Otherwise, I have daily obligations that can’t be ignored.
Eden Robinson
What is to be sought in designs for the display of information is the clear portrayal of complexity. Not the complication of the simple; rather the task of the designer is to give visual access to the subtle and the difficult – that is, revelation of the complex.
Edward Tufte
Then clear on a flute of purest gold A sweet little fairy played. And wonderful fairy tales she told and marvelous music made.
Ida Rentoul Outhwaite
Without trying to clear up the degree of correctness of a qualification which no one, one must hope, will be asked to understand exactly, I will limit myself to a few words of explanation to cut short any misunderstandings.
Gustave Courbet
I went to a psychotherapist for a year and a bit, and it was fantastic. I went in with a very clear question: I couldn’t work out why I behaved in a certain way in certain situations, and I got that answered.
Sanjeev Bhaskar
The important thing is that I’m clear about the love and respect that I got for Rihanna.
J Balvin
Watching I watch myself, what I see is my creation as though entering through my eyes perception is conception into an eye more crystal clear water of thoughts, what I watch watches me, I am the creation of what I see
Octavio Paz
As we head to war with Iraq, President Bush wants to make one thing clear: This war is not about oil. It’s about gasoline.
Jay Leno
It is very clear for us; we will do whatever is in the best interest of Shriram shareholders.
Ajay Piramal
By looking through the eyes of co-creation – seeing that we are co-creating this universe, co-creating our relationships, and co-creating our experiences – we can find the unseen patterns that exist inside of us. And with this clear-eyed wisdom, we are able to cut the line, drop the anchor, and set ourselves free.
Debbie Ford
It is only to clear from history that states rarely keep faith with each other, save in so far (and so long) as their promises seem to them to combine with their interests.
B. H. Liddell Hart
What is clear to one man may be doubtful to another.
Lloyd Kenyon, 1st Baron Kenyon
I felt like the script [of “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore”] was so clear. It was sort of packed full of information. [Macon Blair] puts in a lot of discussion in the script. Characters are introduced very thoughtfully. The way he described walking into particular environments was very specific.
Melanie Lynskey
I’d like to be clear that a number of people find me intolerable, and they don’t hesitate to say so – which they and I cherish.
Ray Dalio
It’s not easy getting old, you know. Things become a lot less clear.
Jonathan Evison
In fact, I am aware of the fake entities in my life.
I know that I can clear them if I wanted to in a moment.
But all this hollowness Needs my Sincerity.
…it becomes clear that, given our diversity, no single religion satisfies all humanity. … And since the majority does not practice religion, I am concerned to try to find a way to serve all humanity without appealing to religious faith.
Dalai Lama
I did a Clean & Clear commercial. I did a series of them. I used to be the Clean & Clear girl!
Shantel VanSanten
I think in friendship, you want to be there for your friend, and sometimes you just don’t know what to do or the relationship you have with them is not clear enough for you to know what to do.
Marion Cotillard
My father came to Chennai at the age of 16 from a village in Coimbatore. He was an artist and was clear he wanted to do something, so he came to Chennai and joined an art course for eight years before he came into films.
The nice thing about being on stage is it’s not that I know what to do, but I have a very clear feeling that anything I do is OK. All I’m up there to do is express how I feel. Any way I choose to do that is fine.
Adam Duritz
There’s no theme, no moral to be learned, except for the knowledge that lightning can strike from a clear blue sky one morning and take away everything you’ve built, everything you’ve counted on, leaving wreckage and no meaning behind. It can happen to anyone, it can happen to you.
Damon Galgut
I’ve never had a sense of entitlement. I saw how hard my father worked for his money, and it was always made very clear to me that things wouldn’t just be given to me.
Ivanka Trump
Having plants and flowers in my space makes me feel very calm and Zen. For me, it’s important to meditate every morning to be very clear in the head, and nature really helps me do the same thing.
Nicola Formichetti
The main thing to know about me is that I’m a champion of entrepreneurs and the startups they build. They are my rock stars. If in doubt, I side with them, and that’s clear from my writing.
Michael Arrington
The Bible is clear that God considers 40 days a spiritually significant time period. Whenever God wanted to prepare someone for his purposes, he took 40 days.
Rick Warren
It is absolutely clear that your continued leadership is putting the Labour Party’s future in jeopardy and denying millions of people in our country who so desperately need representation by a Labour government the chance of that Labour government.
Tessa Jowell
Desire looks clear from the eyes of a lovely bride: power as strong as the founded world
They grow in layers, like the spirit does. That’s what Grandpa Sam used to say, anyway. You just got to keep the roots in a clear stream and not let nobody taint the water for you.
James Lee
The sun rose yellow as a lemon.The sky was round and blue.The birds looped clear water songs in the air.Will and Jim leaned from their windows.Nothing had changed.Except the look in Jim’s eyes.Last night. . . said Will. Did or didn’t it happen?
Ray Bradbury
Something good happened to my writing when I stopped being afraid to do something simple, for the fear that people might think I couldn’t do something more complex. Don’t be confused by the word simple. Simple is not easy, it is clear voiced, and fearlessly elegant.
Carrie Newcomer
The Fourth Amendment is quite clear on the notion that search and seizure must not be unreasonable. It is difficult to think of something more unreasonable than searching the private phone records and digital information of citizens who are suspected of nothing.
Ben Shapiro
At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear.
Norman Maclean
A clear lesson of history is that a ‘sine qua non’ for sustained economic recovery following a financial crisis is a thoroughgoing repair of the financial system.
Janet Yellen
Regrettably, it has become clear that torture of detainees in United States custody is not limited to Abu Ghraib or even Iraq. Since Abu Ghraib, there have been increasing reports of torture.
Marty Meehan
It was always clear to me that I would have to earn my readers, some I would have to find, some to create.
Aleksandar Hemon
I guess when I look over my shoulder at other designers, I feel like people are so definitive. It’s so clear to me what their aesthetic is, what they’re projecting. And I look at my own work and I think, Who could ever decipher what the hell is going on?
Marc Jacobs
The Freedom of Information Act should be administered with a clear presumption: In the face of doubt, openness prevails.
Barack Obama
Observation is the generative act in scientific discovery. For all its aberrations, the evidence of the senses is essentially to be relied upon provided we observe nature as a child does, without prejudices and preconceptions, but with that clear and candid vision which adults lose and scientists must strive to regain.
Peter Medawar
We have to face up to systemic racism. We see it in jobs, we see it in education, we see it in housing. But let’s be really clear; it’s a big part of what we’re facing in the criminal justice system.
Hillary Clinton
The Fourth Amendment is clear; we should be secure in our persons, houses, papers, and effects, and all warrants must have probable cause. Today the government operates largely in secret, while seeking to know everything about our private lives – without probable cause and without a warrant.
Ron Paul
It is clear that if people know me through football, they would think I am one of the most hated players in football, that is clear.
Jordi Alba
In a crystal we have clear evidence of the existence of a formative life principle, and though we cannot understand the life of a crystal, it is nonetheless a living being
Nikola Tesla
The school made it very clear that women were entitled to positions of authority. That sense of entitlement allowed us to feel that we have a natural place in leadership in the world. That gave me a mental and emotional confidence.
Linda Vester
The very heart of worship, as the Bible makes clear, is the business of expressing, from the depths of our spirits, the highest possible honor we can offer before God.
R. C. Sproul
The coming decade belongs to the right of the poor and the marginalised. The BJP is very clear on that.
Narendra Modi
My wife had her drivers’ test the other day. She got 8 out of 10. The other 2 guys jumped clear.
Rodney Dangerfield
Thousands of people have tried, and the evidence is clear: The more you trade, the less you keep.
Benjamin Graham
Fly-fishing is solitary, contemplative, misanthropic, scientific in some hands, poetic in others, and laced with conflicting aesthetic considerations. It’s not even clear if catching fish is actually the point.
John Gierach
Good things are associated with blue, like clear days, more than singing the blues. Just the word ‘blue’ in the singular is full of optimism and positive connotation to most people.
David Carson
An empty day, though clear and bright, Is just as dark as any night.
Anne Frank
Most people have turned their solutions toward what is easy and toward the easiest side of the easy; but it is clear that we must trust in what is difficult; everything alive trusts in it.
Rainer Maria Rilke
When it became clear that Lennon was not going to speak with me, it really became a how-I-didn’t-get-the-story story. It was a caper.
Laurence Shames
When confronted with a clear definition of what it is to be Mexican, we encounter ourselves in a never ending allegory of mixes and chaos.
Gael Garcia Bernal
It doesn’t occur to so many people that if you don’t have a clear heterosexual, gender confirming identity that there are parts of day-to-day life – like using a bathroom or getting your clothes – that just aren’t going to be as easy.
Lena Dunham
I have a clear view of 12 years of history of my inner self. First the cramped self, that self with big blinkers, then the disappearance of the blinkers and the self, now gradually the reemergence of a self without blinkers.
Paul Klee
Listen to others as if they are telling you the truth, ask questions when you aren’t clear, and allow others the room to have different feelings than you. No more assigning hidden motives, prejudging and cutting people off before separating fact from fiction.
Rhonda Britten
When your life becomes clear and pure, when your mind is clear and your view of life is unobstructed, then you’ll be at peace with yourself. Then you will be happy.
Frederick Lenz
Well, enforcement theater is OK if it’s reality theater. In other words, obviously, you want to make it clear, you want to make people see that the law is being enforced.
Mark Krikorian
It is apparently vital that we should be in the dark about ourselves not to be clear about our intentions, fears, and hopes. There is a stubborn effort in us to set up a compact screen between consciousness and the self.
Eric Hoffer

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Barbara Jordan
Anything made out of destructible matter Infinite time would have devoured before. But if the atoms that make and replenish the world Have endured through the immense span of the past Their natures are immortal-that is clear. Never can things revert to nothingness!
The MDGs have been a fundamental framework for global development. A clear agenda, with measurable goals and targets, and a common vision have been crucial for this success. There is now an expectation around the world that sooner, rather than later, all these goals can and must be achieved.
Sha Zukang
Relax,” Chiron told me. “Keep a clear head. And remember, you may be about to prevent the biggest war in human history.” “Relax,” I said. “I’m very relaxed.
Rick Riordan
Spring’s last-born darling, clear-eyed, sweet,
Pauses a moment, with white twinkling feet,
And golden locks in breezy play,
Half teasing and half tender, to repeat
Her song of May.
Sarah Chauncey Woolsey
All my life I have gone out on a limb, but I have turned the limb into a bridge, and there is cool, clear water flowing under.
Holly Near
We will not overcome world poverty unless we manage climate change successfully. I’ve spent my life as a development economist, and it’s crystal clear that we succeed or fail on winning the battle against world poverty and managing climate change together. If we fail on one, we fail on the other.
Nicholas Stern
A penny saved is two pence clear.
Benjamin Franklin
This is essentially a people’s contest… whose leading object is to elevate the condition of men – to lift artificial weights from all shoulders – to clear the paths of laudable pursuit for all – to afford all, an unfettered start and a fair chance, in the race of life.
Abraham Lincoln
Whatever long-term advantages are claimed for Brexit it is overwhelmingly clear that in the short to medium term it carries risks to our economy and security.
Dominic Grieve
Not to create confusion in what is clear, but to throw light on what is obscure.
Where would the memoir be without bipolar writers? I mean, that’s what – that whole oversharing thing is really a very clear symptom of bipolar disorder. And I’m not saying that every, you know, I’m not accusing every memoirist of being bipolar. But I think in a way it’s kind of a gift.
Ayelet Waldman
In darkness God’s truth shines most clear.
Corrie Ten Boom
The self is fundamentally an illusion arising as a reflection of the soul in matter, much as a clear lake at midnight reflects the moon.
Fred Alan Wolf
Selfless-giving burns away the layers of the onion. Purity and humility keep meditation and selfless-giving clear. Love radiates through the entire practice because we do all of it only for love.
Frederick Lenz
Things may not be immediately discernible in what a man writes, and in this sometimes he is fortunate; but eventually they are quite clear, and by these and the degree of alchemy that he possesses, he will endure or be forgotten.
Ernest Hemingway
In light of Jamey [Rodemeyer]’s death — it became clear to me in an instant that living a gay life without publicly acknowledging it — is simply not enough to make any significant contribution to the immense work that lies ahead on the road to complete equality.
Zachary Quinto
The clean tongue, the clear head, and the bright eye are birthrights of each day.
William Osler
The Russians and the Chinese have been absolutely clear they don’t want to see Iran with a nuclear weapon.
Hillary Clinton
When it was first proposed, I was willing to support it as a ‘transitional fuel’ because it had some clear advantages for Hawaii. Much has changed since then. LNG will no longer save us any money.
David Ige
Merripen, despite his fear of heights, had often climbed a ladder to wash the second floor window for her. He had wanted her view of the outside world to be clear. He had said the sky should always be blue for her.
Lisa Kleypas
Former vice president Al Gore has devoted his post-administration years to a mission to tell the world about global warming. It’s funny, but in his civilian life Gore has discovered the voice that voters had trouble hearing when he ran for president in 2000. The voice he has found is clear, impassioned, and moving.
Graydon Carter
The Bible is clear that the Holy Spirit is God Himself.
Billy Graham
Let’s be clear: Has the U.S. ever made any mistakes? Of course.Is the U.S. at all like [Vladimir] Putin’s regime? Not at all.
Benjamin E. Sasse
So much of being an actor is trying to force yourself into these roles and sometimes it’s a good fit, and sometimes it’s not a good fit… you have to get clear about what it is that you do and not try to be a bunch of other people. Not try to be that guy or try to play that part; find the roles that you do well.
Andrew Rannells
It’s very clear from what he [Osama ben Laden] said, what his lieutenants have said, that America is not even their main enemy. We’re simply in the way of what they want to do in their own world, which is to destroy police states and Israel.
Michael Scheuer
Living intensely each present day means letting Christ dwell within you. His words are so clear: Today I would like to enter your home.
Mother Teresa
Hung verdict would have meant anger against previous govt; Clear verdict to BJP shows people voted for hope and aspiration.
Narendra Modi
In the 50 years I’ve spent helping people to overcome illness, disability and disease, it has become crystal clear that poor bowel management lies at the root of most peoples’ health problems.
Bernard Jensen
His Majesty the King requires that the Royal Chancellery in all written documents endeavor to write in clear, plain Swedish.
Charles XII of Sweden
Science is the engine of prosperity. All the prosperity we see around us is a byproduct of scientific inventions. And that’s not being made clear to young people. If we can’t make it clear to young people they’re not going to go into science. And science will suffer in the United States.
Michio Kaku
The overall situation has now become clear the DPJ has suffered a great setback.
Katsuya Okada
I am very clear that when I work with a director what he or she says is the last word.
Shahrukh Khan
If I can make it clear that I’m still defying the Capitol right up to the end, the Capitol will have killed me… but not my spirit. What better way to give hope to the rebels?
Suzanne Collins
It is what we imagine knowledge to be:
dark, salt, clear, moving, utterly free,
drawn from the cold hard mouth
of the world, derived from the rocky breasts
forever, flowing and drawn, and since
our knowledge is historical, flowing, and flown.
Elizabeth Bishop
When the history of African development is written, it will be clear that a turning point involved the empowerment of women.
Sheryl WuDunn
If the path before you is clear, you’re probably on someone else’s.
Joseph Campbell
Prime Minister Benjamin Netyanahu made it real clear. They’re willing to be generous on some other concessions but not on the border issue. And I don’t blame him.
Herman Cain
Let me be clear: I unequivocally support a two-state solution as the path to resolution of the Israel and Palestinian conflict, with Israel as the national homeland for the Jewish people. Moreover, I reject the demonization and de-legitimization of Israel represented by the BDS narrative and campaign.
Stacey Abrams
I think the Mogadishu effect, if I had to define it, is we need to be more careful where we decide to commit US forces, and for what reason, and to make a clear judgment as to what we can and can’t do and whether it’s in our interests, or we could afford the resources that it would take to make the situation right.
Anthony Zinni
Donald Trump has declared that he’s going to divest himself from his companies and that his sons will be separated from the government. But his sons who run the company are regularly attending his meetings with senators, making it clear to everybody, you want access to Trump you pay.
David Frum
Sometimes it all gets a little too much, but you gotta realize that soon the fog will clear up.
Shawn Mendes
People react positively when things are clear and understandable.
Dieter Rams
To say that mind is a product or function of protoplasm, or of its molecular changes, is to use words to which we can attach no clear conception.

The morning had dawned clear and cold, with a crispness that hinted at the end of summer.
George R. R. Martin
It is entirely clear that there is only one way in which great wars can be permanently prevented, and that is the establishment of an international government with a monopoly of serious armed force.
Bertrand Russell
Hordes of people [are] born, who live, yet who have done absolutely nothing to advance the race one iota. Their lives are hopeless repetitions… Such human weeds clog up the path, drain up the energies and the resources of this little earth. We must clear the way for a better world; we must cultivate our garden.
Margaret Sanger
We (the FBI) are a fact-gathering organization only. We don’t clear anybody. We don’t condemn anybody.
J. Edgar Hoover

what Corn Flakes are to Post Toasties,
what the clear blue sky is to the deep blue sea,
what Hank Williams is to Neil Armstrong –
can you doubt we were made for each other?
Lyle Lovett
I love boxing! Working out is calming and helps clear my mind.
Adriana Lima
When it comes to deciding to use the Bomb, a personality that is calm, clear and measured would seem to inspire more confidence that caution would be employed.
Donald Trump
When I talk to [my kids], I remember my father talking to me, so it’s understandable that I would make a film like “Aquarius.” A very good friend of mine saw the film, and she said it was clear that it had been made by someone who had just become a father.
Sonia Braga
The overwhelming condemnation makes it clear we have made enormous progress in teaching everyone that racism is bad. Where we seem to have dropped the ball… is in teaching people what racism actually is … which allows people to say incredibly racist things while insisting they would never.
Jon Stewart
Certain characteristics of the subject are clear. To begin with, we do not in this subject deal with particular things or particular properties: we deal formally with what can be said about any thing or any property. We are prepared to say that one and one are two, but not that Socrates and Plato are two.
Bertrand Russell
I think that the FIDE leaders have to reconsider the current drawing rules – their advantages aren’t very clear, but their shortcomings are obvious. Artificial drawing of the lots is detrimental for everyone.
Mikhail Tal

Jack Butland
It is a fault to wish to be understood before we have made ourselves clear to ourselves.
Simone Weil
Whatever tumults and strifes await God’s witnesses, it remains clear that the doctrine of persecution for the sake of conscience is most evidently and lamentably contrary to the doctrine of Christ Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
Roger Williams
Eating well and staying active is the necessary base to a clear complexion and a healthy body and mind.
Hannah Bronfman
I explain this not for publicity, nor seeking to win an argument of right or wrong, I explain so that the record is clear as to my thinking and motivations in bombing a government installation.

Anthony Burgess
Our objective is clear: we will degrade, and ultimately destroy, ISIL through a comprehensive and sustained counter-terrorism strategy.
Barack Obama
What is a Fuhrungsspieler? I don’t like the term. For me there is not a clear definition of the term.
Philipp Lahm
Let me be very clear: We monitor the risks of violent extremism taking root here in the United States. We don’t have the luxury of focusing our efforts on one group; we must protect the country from terrorism whether foreign or homegrown, and regardless of the ideology that motivates its violence.
Janet Napolitano
I do speak to kids a lot. I am very clear with them that not all of them should aspire to be me and not all of them should be aspire to be LeBron.
John Legend

James W. Pennebaker
First follow Nature, and your judgment frame
By her just standard, which is still the same:
Unerring nature, still divinely bright,
One clear, unchanged, and universal light,
Life, force, and beauty must to all impart,
At once the source, and end, and test of art.
Alexander Pope
I want to make it clear that the black race did not come to the United States culturally empty-handed. The role and importance of ethnic history is in how well it teaches a people to use their own talents, take pride in their own history and love their own memories.
John Henrik Clarke
The future cannot be legislated. All that can be done is to anticipate its most important movements and to clear the path for them.
Peter Kropotkin

Bernard of Clairvaux
And it also became clear that these conditions of inequality and historical injustice have given rise to a feeling of hate in the world – a deeply felt hate that cannot easily be overcome with a few good words.

Van Morrison
There can be no fairer ambition than to excel in talk; to be affable, gay, ready, clear, and welcome.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Give people, including yourself, clear permission to make mistakes . . . and to fix the problems. Since nobody’s perfect, mistakes should be allowed. Cover-ups shouldn’t. Cover-ups create twice the trouble.
Price Pritchett
Explanations are clear but since no one to whom a thing is explained can connect the explanations with what is really clear, therefore clear explanations are not clear.
Gertrude Stein
It is already clear, after twenty years of socialism in Russia, that if you do not provide your society with a new religion, it will gradually revert to the old one.
Herbert Read
It is much better to have just one idea, and if the idea is clear, then you can fight for it. That is how you can get things done.

Laura Huxley
Running is like a form of meditation for me and a great way to clear my head.
Sally Fitzgibbons
It was clear that [the number] just kept growing, and there were no [Hillary] Clinton signs. People were fed up.
Collin Peterson
Much to his annoyance, a thought popped into his mind. It was very clear and very distinct, and he had now come to recognize these thoughts for what they were. His instinct was to resist them.
Douglas Adams
A lot of people mistake a short memory for a clear conscience.
Doug Larson
I knew that I could never win a referendum in Germany. We would have lost a referendum on the introduction of the euro. That’s quite clear. I would have lost, and by seven to three.
Helmut Kohl
In Minnesota, we hold our leaders to a higher standard. We demand that the men and women we send to Washington stand above reproach and steer clear of the web of corruption, kickbacks and special favors.
Kurt Bills
I want to be very clear – there will be no path to legalization.
Mike Pence
It’s hard to pull apart empathy from compassion. What is really clear is that we innately care for other people at least to some extent.
Paul Bloom
Diplomacy is the only clear answer to the current situation. There is no legal basis for referring Iran to the Security Council. But if that were to happen Iran is not afraid.

Arnold Schwarzenegger
Running is one the best solutions to a clear mind.
Sasha Azevedo
The violence engulfing the region today has made too many Israelis ready to abandon the hard work of peace. But let’s be clear: the status quo in the West Bank and Gaza is not sustainable.
Barack Obama
Often, the disparities in the ways men and women are treated are subtle; there are not these clear barriers that you have to break down.
Eleanor Clift
When praying for the Lord’s will about something questionable, don’t give up if you don’t receive clear leading after one prayer; just keep on praying until God makes it clear.
Curtis Hutson
My [story] outlines are usually about 5-6 pages long. I’m essentially telling myself the story in short form. I try to make it clear who the major characters are, what they want, and what obstacles they face.
Chevy Stevens
As developing countries became bigger traders, it was clear that the old way of doing business wouldn’t fly. To get them back to the bargaining table, the wealthy countries had to offer something more: a new round of talks that would use trade as a tool to help developing countries grow.
Daniel Altman
Recurrent floods of sadness and anger gradually wash away the rubble of the defunct relationship, leaving only the bits of treasure: the remembered moments of real communion, a new understanding of your own mistakes, a clear picture of the dysfunctions you will never tolerate again.
Martha Beck
Rage-the biggest, truest rage of her adult life-had invaded her like a fever, but it wasn’t like any fever she had known previously. It circulated like weird serum, cold on the right side of her body, then hot on the left, where her heart was. It seemed to come nowhere near her head, which remained clear.
Stephen King
People who have tried it, tell me that a clear conscience makes you very happy and contented; but a full stomach does the business quite as well, and is cheaper, and more easily obtained.
Jerome K. Jerome
Acid wasn’t getting a whole lot of bad press at the time, and as I saw the whole bad-press thing happen, I became aware that the government had done a whole lie on all the other benign drugs as well. It became clear to me that the government wanted no real drug education.
Tommy Rettig
I use a Bruce Lee technique: ‘The way of no way.’ He had the idea that he would learn everything, so that whoever he had to fight, he could improvise anything. The best way of starting a gig is just to not think of anything – to clear your mind, not in an empty Zen state, but more just to go on and see where you go.
Eddie Izzard
This much then, is clear: in all our conduct it is the mean that is to be commended.
I conceive there lies a clear rule in Titus that the elder women should instruct the younger and then I must have a time wherein I must do it.
Anne Hutchinson
Freedom is a clear conscience.

John Dryden
Brilliant ideas are gifts from God, sent to you in answer to your prayers . . . and all you need to do is act upon the ideas, one divinely guided step at a time. If you want to validate if an idea is truly heavensent, ask your angels to send you clear signs.
Doreen Virtue
The Roman Christian mythology (and theology) discourages the vice of licentiousness, and so this is better than the heathen, but it encourages bigotry, hypocrisy, cant, and many another vice which the older Mother of Abominations kept clear from.
Theodore Parker
Analytic It is clear that the definition of “logic” or “mathematics” must be sought by trying to give a new definition of the old notion of “analytic” propositions.
Bertrand Russell
Nature’s message is clear: we can’t keep doing what we’re doing now.
Kevin Spacey
Our job as humans is to hold on to the thoughts of what we want, make it absolutely clear in our minds what we want, and from that we start to invoke one of the greatest laws in the Universe, and that’s the law of attraction. You become what you think about most, but you also attract what you think about most.
John Assaraf
There can be no true goodness, nor true love, without the utmost clear-sightedness.
Albert Camus
The mathematician who pursues his studies without clear views of this matter, must often have the uncomfortable feeling that his paper and pencil surpass him in intelligence.
Ernst Mach
The water in a vessel is sparkling; the water in the sea is dark. The small truth has words which are clear; the great truth has great silence.
Rabindranath Tagore
There was an austerely dignified award ceremony. By that I mean we had to buy our own drinks – in clear violation of the international journalists’code of truth, fairness and an open bar.
P. J. O’Rourke
Diplomacy should always be the first option, and every mission should have a clear, achievable objective that is in the interests of the United States.
Mike Thompson
Let’s be clear about this. The rejection of the constitution was a mistake that will have to be corrected.
Valery Giscard d’Estaing
Her life was beginning to make sense again, although she couldn’t say she was enjoying it. But her mind was clear, and her heart was not constantly as heavy. Only when she thought about him. But she knew that in time, she’d survive it. She had done it before and would again. Eventually the heart repairs.
Danielle Steel
We know that we are happy when our mind is peaceful, and unhappy when it is not. It is therefore clear that our happiness depends upon our having a peaceful mind and not on good external conditions. Even if our external conditions are poor, if we maintain a peaceful mind all the time we shall always be happy.
Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.
Steven Wright
It was clear to me, as I glanced back over my earlier life, that a loving Providence watched over me, that all was directed for me by a higher power.
Hans Christian Andersen
I certainly do believe anyone engaged in the management of money should have a standard of measurement, and that both he and the party whose money is managed should have a clear understanding why it is the appropriate standard, what time period should be utilized, etc.
Warren Buffett
I don’t think we’re totally responsible. But you know, all the bands said it, that we did. Even Courtney Love said that. Anyway, Courtney called her band Hole, get it? Slits? Hole? So it’s pretty clear we were an influence on all of them, but I’m not really sure how far it goes. I was on a different planet at the time.
Ari Up
Anyone who claims to have an entirely clear conscience is almost certainly a bore.
Bernard Cornwell
You couldn’t have a more clear choice between Donald Trump and I, who will end illegal immigration in this country, and – and Hillary Clinton, who will pursue more of the same, executive amnesty, open borders, which the American people are sick and tired of.
Mike Pence
I have a lot of optimism about new doctors because I think it’s really clear that it’s a lot of hard work and no guarantee of a lot of money.
Anna Deavere Smith
If the mind is illumined, there is clear blue sky in a dark room. If the thoughts are muddled, there are malevolent ghosts in broad daylight.
Zicheng Hong
Thought engenders thought. Place one idea on paper, another will follow it, and still another, until you have written a page; you cannot fathom your mind. There is a well of thought which has no bottom; the more you draw from it, the more clear and fruitful it will be.
George Augustus Henry Sala
I have been very clear about the necessity for doing whatever is required to move the VA into the 21st century.
Hillary Clinton
It is quite clear to me that the religious paradise of youth, which [I] lost, was a first attempt to free myself from the chains of the ‘merely personal,’ from an existence which is dominated by wishes, hopes, and primitive feelings.
Albert Einstein
The way you build trust with your people is by being forthright and clear with them from day one. You may think people are fooled when you tell them what they want to hear. They are not fooled.
Dick Costolo
Well, there’s been plenty of ultimatums, and one thing that we better be very clear is that we can’t continue to have the kind of defiance of the United Nations, the defiance of the international community that we’ve had.
Condoleezza Rice
The continuous networks of neural circuitry accomplish their functions using multiple, independently discovered strategies. The brain lends itself well to the complexity of the world, but poorly to clear-cut cartography.
David Eagleman
The value of beauty and inspiration is very much underrated, no question. But I want to be clear: I’m not trying to be anyone’s savior. I’m just trying to think about the future and not be sad.
Elon Musk
The most powerful factors in the world are clear ideas in the minds of energetic men of good will.
J. Arthur Thomson
This searching and doubting and vacillating where nothing is clear but the arrogance of quest. I, too, had such noble ideas when I was still a boy.
Franz Grillparzer
It has become clear that America’s civilian institutions of diplomacy and development have been chronically undermanned and underfunded for far too long – relative to what we spend on the military, and more important, relative to the responsibilities and challenges our nation has around the world.
Robert M. Gates
All right,” he said. “Since you ask so nicely.” “I wasn’t asking.” “I’m aware of that. The sharp point in my back did make it clear.

David O. McKay
Beyond the natural numbers, addition, multiplication, and mathematical induction are intuitively clear.
L. E. J. Brouwer
Pakistan’s political leadership needs to make a clear choice to fight the Taliban decisively, not with half measures, the burden is on Prime Minister Sharif to show he can unite the country to defend its children.
Bruce Riedel
I will live my whole life in Mexico. I want that to be clear.
Vicente Fernandez
Plan backwards as well as forward. Set objectives and trace back to see how to achieve them. You may find that no path can get you there. Plan forward to see where your steps will take you, which may not be clear or intuitive.
Donald Rumsfeld
I’ll be honest with you, I don’t agree with President Obama about everything. But I’ve gotten to know him, I’ve worked with him, and the choice is crystal clear.

Geoffrey Hinton
Today, it is clear that Internet organizing is vital to our future success.
Martin Frost
It’s clear that science and science fiction have overlapping populations.
Frederik Pohl
I believe that the Framers of the Constitution made their intent clear when they wrote the First Amendment. I believe they wanted to keep the new government from endorsing one religion over another, not erase the public consciousness or common faith.
Nick Rahall
Everything was too sharp and clear, so that I could never tell where to start- the way a map that shows too much can sometimes be useless.
Haruki Murakami
We have not known a single great scientist who could not discourse freely and interestingly with a child. Can it be that haters of clarity have nothing to say, have observed nothing, have no clear picture of even their own fields?
John Steinbeck
It isn’t necessary for a work to have a lot of things to look at, to compare, to analyze one by one, to contemplate. The thing as a whole, its quality whole, is what is interesting. The main things are alone and are more intense, clear and powerful.
Donald Judd
The first pages of memory are like the old family Bible. The first leaves are wholly faded and somewhat soiled with handling. But, when we turn further, and come to the chapters where Adam and Eve were banished from Paradise, then, all begins to grow clear and legible.
Max Muller
But let’s be clear. We’re talking about a country where there’s no opposition. As leader he can ignore Parliament and – sorry that’s Tony Blair isn’t it? Um, so he doesn’t even have to ask the country before he goes to war – sorry that’s still Tony Blair.
Rory Bremner
You have to work very hard behind the scenes, to make a message clear enough for a lot of people to understand.
Stefano Gabbana
As the First World War made painfully clear, when politicians and generals lead nations into war, they almost invariably assume swift victory, and have a remarkably enduring tendency not to foresee problems that, in hindsight, seem obvious.
Adam Hochschild
My dear friend, clear your mind of can’t.
Samuel Johnson
If the scholar feels that he must know everything about any topic, he is in trouble – and will not publish with a clear conscience.
Kenneth L. Pike
Jenny Holzer
There are clear patterns of discrimination against Blacks and Latinos. The big banks targeted Blacks and Latinos with toxic packages of subprime predatory lending.
Jesse Jackson
I have always been reasonably leery of religion because there are so many edicts in religion, ‘thou shalt not,’ or ‘thou shalt.’ I wanted my world of the future to be clear of that.
Gene Roddenberry
To be clear, we the Department of Education want curriculum to be driven by the local level. We are by law prohibited from directing curriculum. We don’t have a curriculum department.
Arne Duncan
it is only by expressing all that is inside that purer and purer streams come. … Pour out the dull things on paper too-you can tear them up afterward-for only then do the bright ones come. If you hold back the dull things, you are certain to hold back what is clear and beautiful and true and lively.
Brenda Ueland
You know, let me be very clear. I supported Barack Obama originally.
Bernie Sanders
The Natural Step is a clear voice in the commotion.
Leif Johansson
In discussing the process with the actors, I made it clear to them that they could improvise but that the sum total of their improvisation needed to impart certain plot points, and schematic material.
Mike Figgis
In my case, I make it clear to the brand that I’m not a salesman. I can show your product as if I use it every day in my daily life but I won’t tell people to buy it.

John Cariani
The world is perfect. As you question your mind, this becomes more and more obvious. Mind changes, and as a result, the world changes. A clear mind heals everything that needs to be healed. It can never be fooled into believing that there is one speck out of order.
Byron Katie
To be happy is very important to do a great performance because you have to be comfortable; your mind has to be clear.
Lyoto Machida
The Bible is clear that those who fail to heed the Lord’s discipline – whether nations, cities, or individuals – suffer devastating consequences.
Charles Stanley
The Supreme Court has been very clear: when it comes to religious discrimination, you can take intent into consideration.
Neal Katyal
When I am cast in a movie where I feel that the woman’s part is more interesting, I usually start thinking about Spencer Tracy and Fred Astaire. They seem to be the most clear actors when working with women.
Jack Nicholson
A mentor is someone with a willingness to help others, who has a capacity to inspire, a determination to work hard, a clear sense of vision, an inspiring purpose, a deep sense of integrity and an appreciation for joy.
Kerry Kennedy
How you refill. Lying there. Something like happiness, just like water, pure and clear pouring in. So good you don’t even welcome it, it runs through you in a bright stream, as if it has been there all along.
Peter Heller
We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods. The teaching of the church is clear, and I am a son of the church, but it is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time.
Pope Francis
Even though i have no other choice but to marry you… I Just want to make it clear that i love and will always love Matt Hardy
Amy Dumas
A pipe in the mouth makes it clear that there has been no mistake-you are undoubtedly a man.
A. A. Milne
I want to make movies that people talk about when they leave the theater, that aren’t clear-cut, but effective and fulfilling in some sense.
Ryan Phillippe
Like the philosopher, the author views his task as one of establishing a clear connection between life and history, and of making the past bear fruit for the present and future.
Lion Feuchtwanger
And when I say permanent afternoon, you know, I’m talking like crystal clear, crispy blue sky. All the sudden you didn’t need to sleep as much because it just was difficult. And how that translated into my creative process I still am not quite sure, but it made my relationship to sleep a kind of abstract you know bizarre…
DJ Spooky
Shun no toil to make yourself remarkable by some talent or other; yet do not devote yourself to one branch exclusively. Strive to get clear notions about all. Give up no science entirely; for science is but one.
Seneca the Younger
O lovely eyes of azure, Clear as the waters of a brook that run Limpid and laughing in the summer sun!
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
But it became clear as time went on that in Mr. Bush’s mind the New World Order was founded on a convergence of goals and interests between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, so strong and permanent that they would work as a team through the U.N. Security Council.
A. M. Rosenthal
One of the problems of modern society, or the post-Internet age, is that there are so many things bombarding us that we could care about. I think it’s more important than ever to really get clear and focus on what’s worth caring about and what’s just noise or distraction.
Mark Manson
Communicating our questions, hopes, and fears in prayer makes them-even to ourselves-more open and clear.
Jimmy Carter
You can’t, in sound morals, condemn a man for taking care of his own integrity. It is his clear duty.
Joseph Conrad
What happened I think on Sept. 11 was we were given graphic and clear evidence that things had changed.
Iain Duncan Smith
There is no escaping this fight. It is civilization or Jihadism. We can and should debate tactics; but the sides are clear enough.
Andrew Sullivan
I think it helps if you have a clear vision of what you want.
Jon Watts
That’s the way things come clear. All of a sudden. And then you realize how obvious they’ve been all along.
Madeleine L’Engle
A clear conscience is absolutely essential for distinguishing between the voice of God and the voice of the enemy. Unconfessed sin is a prime reason why many do not know God’s will.
Winkie Pratney
As long as Kline doesn’t kiss you.” The warning was clear in his voice. “Same goes.” “If he kisses me, he’s getting decked.” I laughed. “You know what I meant.
Sylvia Day
In America right now, we use words like ‘smart’ to talk about bombs. American rhetoric is grounded in ideas of capital-G Good, capital-E Evil, and it’s very clear who is on which side. But in a book you can do just the opposite. You can use all lower-case words.
Jonathan Safran Foer
Life is tough and brimming with loss, and the most we can do about it is to glimpse ourselves clear now and then, and find out what we feel about familiar scenes and recurring faces this time around.
Roger Angell
Of course nothing is ever done about a [presidential] commission report, except, they say, once a man at the state prison for the criminally insane actually read one once clear through. Then he did something about it. He made a bonfire that lasted a week.
Will Rogers
The challenge is, well, there’s a huge challenge, which is when you’re improvising, you’re meant to sort of clear your mind completely, just be open and funny, and paying, you know, paying attention.
Brian Henson
When I’m carried away, isn’t it clear that my heart contradicts my mouth?
Jean Racine
The scriptures make the danger of delay clear. It is that we may discover that we have run out of time. The God who gives us each day as a treasure will require an accounting.
Henry B. Eyring
With little art, clear wit and sense Suggest their own delivery.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The country I live in is never clear about its name. My passport says ‘the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland,’ and citizens of the U.K. may call themselves British, English, Scottish, Welsh or from Northern Ireland.
Gavin Esler
It is clear that the American people are weary of war. However, Assad gassing his own people is an issue of our national security, regional stability and global security.
Nancy Pelosi
Try to be transparent, clear and truthful. Even when it is difficult, and above all when it is difficult.
Jean-Cyril Spinetta
Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.
Peter Berg
A boycott would send a clear message to Yahoo shareholders and other companies which cheerfully sacrifice human rights in return for a cut of the Chinese market.
Simon Davies
Those who do not put clear limits on migration will soon start to feel like strangers in their own land.
Sebastian Kurz
It is clear that there needs to be a closer working relationship between the United States and India. How can we have a close relationship if decision-makers in Washington know very little, if anything, about the religious beliefs, values, and practices of India’s 800 million Hindus?
Tulsi Gabbard
If I had said, “I don’t stand a chance,” one thing is clear: I wouldn’t have.
Chuck Norris
The number one reason that we don’t get our needs met, we don’t express them. We express judgments. If we do express needs, the number two reasons we don’t our needs met, we don’t make clear requests.
Marshall B. Rosenberg
There’s no pillow as soft as a clear conscience.
Glen Campbell
There is a reason why you are here on this beautiful blue planet. Even if you aren’t clear about what that reason is, the universe is gently nudging you forward in every moment. You are enough just as you are.
Denise Linn
The Scots are poor, cries surly English pride; True is the charge, nor by themselves denied. Are they not then in strictest reason clear, Who wisely come to mend their fortunes here?
Charles Churchill
a writer’s first duty is to be clear. Clarity is an excellent virtue. Like all virtues it can be pursued at ruinous cost. Paid, so far as I am concerned, joyfully.
Storm Jameson
Let’s make this clear: I do not hate anybody.
Tyson Fury
Cold love’s the loveliest love of all. So clear, so crisp, so empty. In short, so civilized.
Mervyn Peake
I believe the American people spoke loud and clear to the Bush Administration in yesterdays election that they disapprove of the current direction in the war in Iraq. As a result, the President wasted no time in dumping Secretary Rumsfeld.
Jim Clyburn
We must now make clear to Lebanon that it will not benefit from U.S. assistance and support as long as it harbors this brutal terrorist and murder.
Jim DeMint
I want everybody to hear loud and clear that I’m going to be the president of everybody.
George W. Bush
You really look to understanding someone’s psyche, and the choices that would best support them, and help to energetically open those areas of their being able to know that everything in life comes to us when our entire organism is clean and clear.
Maya Tiwari
Cut the “im” out of impossible, leading that dynamic word standing out free and clear-possible.
Norman Vincent Peale
It’s not that every single thing that happens on Facebook is gonna be good. This is humanity. People use tools for good and bad, but I think that we have a clear responsibility to make sure that the good is amplified and to do everything we can to mitigate the bad.
Mark Zuckerberg
I am personally against abortion on demand, but I believe it is very clear that there must be legislation brought in that will deal with what is becoming simply a mish-mash of approaches
Paul Martin
Is that clear?” said Borcht “as clear as pea soup” I said
James Patterson
People are quite clear in viewing nuns as the servants and the teachers and the supporters of the poor. You contrast that with the fact that the Vatican did virtually nothing about long-known pedophiles, and it’s just too much.
Gloria Steinem
The dividing line between wish and need was never clear.
James Buchan
The more we are committed to believing that something is true, the less likely we are to believe that its opposite is true, even in the face of clear evidence that shows we are wrong.
Marshall Goldsmith
Clear and sweet is my soul, clear and sweet is all that is not my soul.
Walt Whitman
At least she had a clear picture of what the Lying Game was now: Girl Scouts for psychopaths.
Sara Shepard
I also carry a clear-and-rose-quartz chakra wand in my handbag.
Miranda Kerr
I’ve never stopped being Argentine, and I’ve never wanted to. I feel very proud of being Argentine, even though I left there. I’ve been clear about this since I was very young, and I never wanted to change.
Lionel Messi
Let me be clear, Mr. President, mistakes have been made in Iraq. And this operation has been far from perfect as evidenced by the fact that Zarqawi and other terrorists continue to wreak havoc throughout Iraq.
Elizabeth Dole
What had started out as a game was now an open challenge, as well as a direct threat. Any further action would bear results, it was clear from the way his gaze smoldered into mine. In that way, it was like an optical erection.
Jeaniene Frost
Gradually it has become clear to me what every great philosophy so far has been: namely, the personal confession of its author and a kind of involuntary and unconscious memoir.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Everyone knows almost everything about me. I make it very clear that I’m cool with people knowing all my personal life through my songs.
Ed Sheeran
He is no longer a city dweller who has even once in his life caught a ruff or seen how, on clear and cool autumn days, flocks of migrating thrushes drift over a village. Until his death he will be drawn to freedom.
Anton Chekhov
Some folks think life and technology and mind can keep expanding forever. Others say it can’t. We are still not clear on that.
Seth Lloyd
I felt like when I got with Kanye, and we discussed me being on G.O.O.D. Music, he just really took me to a place in regards to music that I love and music that I had made previously. We had a clear understanding of what I wanted to make, and he just seemed like he was an advocate for hardcore, uncompromising hip-hop.
Pusha T
What we owe future generations is the subject of growing debate by economists, philosophers, ethicists, public policymakers, and academics of all stripes. But for me as a mother, the moral implications are very clear. We owe them clean air and fresh water, a healthy planet and a secure future.
Leonor Varela
I’m trying to tell the story in the most clear, concise, and truthful way, taking those everyday words and phrases and capturing them in a way that they become something else.
I am always interested in characters who are in these kinds of transitional moments in their lives, when it’s not clear where they’re going to end up. It’s interesting territory for fiction.
K. M. Soehnlein
Philosophy is not a body of doctrine but an activity. …Without philosophy thoughts are, as it were, cloudy and indistinct: its task is to make them clear and to give them sharp boundaries.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
The glance of Love is crystal clear.
I’ve made it clear for years that the threat from Iran is grave.
Barack Obama
To a born-again atheist like myself, it is clear that each of us has multiple selves, talents, perceptions. But to the Roman Catholic, unity is all.
Gore Vidal
I am the elected president of Liberia, not Ellen Sirleaf. They stole my victory, and I am here to say loud and clear that I am the winner of the elections.
George Weah
We do, in former chairman Lee Atwater’s words, offer the party as a big tent, and therefore that message has to be clear. How we do that within the platform, the preamble to the platform or whatnot, that remains to be seen. But that message will have to be articulated with great clarity.
Dan Quayle
Assurance and intrepidity, under the white banner of seeming modesty, clear the way for merit, that would otherwise be discouraged by difficulties…
Lord Chesterfield
Good writing … involves the agony of turning profoundly difficult thoughts into lucid form, then forcing them into the tight-fitting uniform of language, making them visible and clear.
Pat Conroy
I don’t read anything about myself. As a child, there was something in me that was just instinctive. I want to be clear in my spirit, and I don’t want to be blocked by things that get inside of you and kill you.
Gloria Vanderbilt
Are public school textbooks biased? Are they censored? The answer to both is yes. And the nature of the bias is clear: Religion, traditional family values, and conservative political and economic positions have been reliably excluded from children’s textbooks.
Paul Vitz
There are the two main reasons we don’t get our needs met. First, we don’t know how to express our needs to begin with and second if we do, we forget to put a clear request after it, or we use vague words like appreciate, listen, recognize, know, be real, and stuff like that.
Marshall B. Rosenberg
This much is clear: violence breeds violence, repression brings retaliation, and only a cleansing of our whole society can remove this sickness from our soul.
Robert Kennedy
I didn’t want it to have any technical virtuosity; I wanted it to just be really clear how it was made. For my work in general, it’s always really clear how it is made.
Josh Smith
It was clear from very early on that I would work in the family company. There was not really ever another option or idea.
Antoine Arnault
I live in Indiana and teach at Purdue University, a wonderful school with some of the brightest students I have ever had the privilege of working with. My colleagues are powerful and intelligent and kind. The cost of living is low, the prairie is wide, and on clear nights, I can see all the stars in the sky above.
Roxane Gay
The more clear and definite you make your picture then,and the more you dwell upon it, bringing out all its delightful details, the stronger your desire will be, and the stronger your desire, the easier it will be to hold your mind fixed upon the picture of what you want.
Wallace D. Wattles
Happiness and freedom begin with a clear understanding of one principle: Some things are within our control, and some things are not.
My nephew has HDADHD. High Definition Attention Deficit Disorder. He can barely pay attention, but when he does it’s unbelievably clear.
Steven Wright
I’ve seen people who stink, but the film editor shows them just where they didn’t stink. But if you’re empty and manipulative on stage, it’s clear.
D. B. Sweeney
Citizenship comes first today in our crowded world…
No man can enjoy the privileges of education and thereafter
with a clear conscience break his contract with society.
To respect that contract is to be mature, to strengthen it is to be a good citizen,
to do more than your share under it is noble.
Isaiah Bowman
was a clear, pale blue like the eyes of a Siberian husky dog. Human beings just didn’t have eyes like that.
Laurell K. Hamilton
It is clear that ‘social Darwinism’ and ‘survival of the fittest’ were intended by Obama to evoke feelings of fear and disgust. It is highly doubtful that Obama knows anything about the history of these ideas, and it is even more doubtful that he cares. A concern for truth is not the coin of the political realm.
George H. Smith
Jesmyn Ward returns to the world of her first two books, but here in the mode of non-fiction. A clear-eyed witness to the harrowing stories of ‘men we reaped,’ she quickens the dead and brings them, vividly alive again. An eloquent, grief-steeped account.
Nicholas Delbanco
I, as the writer, can be very clear that I am writing a work of heightened fiction, as opposed to documenting horrible things that happen every day in the world. Which I have no interest in doing.
Bryan Fuller
Fairy tales do not give the child his first idea of bogey. What fairy tales give the child is his first clear idea of the possible defeat of bogey. The baby has known the dragon intimately ever since he had an imagination. What the fairy tale provides for him is a St. George to kill the dragon.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
It was a clear, starry night, dead calm. Whenever I see a sky like that, I wish I could write music
Henning Mankell
With repetition, the alternate approaches become clear, options open.
Robert Genn
So I have tried to make it clear that it is wrong to use immoral means to attain moral ends. But now I must affirm that it is just as wrong, or even more so, to use moral means to preserve immoral ends.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
In a war, no matter the outcome of a certain skirmish or battle, the winner is the party whose attitudes, behaviors and preoccupations come to dominate the postwar landscape. By this measure, the outcome of the gender wars, if wars they were, is clear: women won.
Marcus Buckingham
Go back to what our founders and our founding documents meant. They’re quite clear that we would create law based on the God of the Bible and the 10 Commandments.
Sarah Palin
My wealth is health and perfect ease; My conscience clear my chief defence; I neither seek by bribes to please, Nor by deceit to breed offence. Thus do I live; thus will I die. Would all did so well as I!
Edward Dyer
Whenever, therefore, people are deceived and form opinions wide of the truth, it is clear that the error has slid into their minds through the medium of certain resemblances to that truth.
I hear the singing of the lives of women. They clear mystery, the offering, and pride.
Muriel Rukeyser
With a clear sky, a bright sun, and a gentle breeze, you will have friends in plenty; but let fortune frown, and the firmament be overcast, and then your friends will prove like the strings of the lute, of which you will tighten ten before you find one that will bear the stretch and keep the pitch.
Gotthold Ephraim Lessing
‘m so fortunate to have done what I love to do for so long, but the day I retired was one of the best days of my life. Not because I was happy to get away from the sport, but because it was clear in my mind that I had done all I possibly could, and that it was time to go.
Carl Lewis
So we in Congress have a very clear choice. We can take largely symbolic action and sit back and fiddle while Americans burn more gasoline. Or we can pass concrete, effective legislation that will save consumers money while significantly reducing U.S. oil consumption.
Sherwood Boehlert
I want to clear up a few myths about myself. People have written that I was a kindergarten teacher and a former Miss Texas, and neither is true.
Krista Allen
I just want to make it clear that I admit that that’s rapey behavior, but I am not a rapist.
David Choe
Let’s just be clear here. The vice president of the United States accidentally shoots a man, and he feels that it’s appropriate for a ranch owner who witnessed this to tell the local Corpus Christi newspaper and not the White House press corps at large, or notify the public in a national way.
David Gregory
Be clear about the purpose of money. Money is like health. It is necessary for survival but it is not what you live for.
Ernie J Zelinski
If any man wish to write in a clear style, let him be first clear in his thoughts; and if any would write in a noble style, let him first possess a noble soul.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
It was previously a question of finding out whether or not life had to have a meaning to be lived. It now becomes clear on the contrary that it will be lived all the better if it has no meaning
Albert Camus
We listened to them, but it was clear they’d received too much therapy to know the truth.
Jeffrey Eugenides
Not if we blow it up,” Gale says brusquely. His intent, his full intent, becomes clear. Gale has no interest in preserving the lives of those in the Nut. No interest in caging the pray for later use. This is one of his death traps.
Suzanne Collins
If I turn out to be particularly clear, you’ve probably misunderstood what I’ve said.
Alan Greenspan
If you really want to find out something about immortality, you have to live in the mountain forests for 30 years. If you succeed in perfecting your eyes and ears there, if you harmonize the heart and the will so that your mind becomes clear and pure and free of all that is evil, you will be able to discuss the matter.
Wang Yangming
There is no clear place to draw the line once you eliminate the traditional marriage, and it’s the same once you start putting limits on what guns can be used, then it’s just really easy to have laws that make them all illegal.
Louie Gohmert
I’m a Democrat, and there are an important group of things only the government can do. But let us be clear that for most of the world, what they most need is less government.
Daniel Patrick Moynihan
It is clear enough by now to most people that the camera never lies is a foolish saying. Yet it is doubtful whether most people realize how extraordinarily slippery a liar the camera is.
James Agee
My intention here is to make it clear that not a single cell of my composition, here in regard to The Raven, is found by chance or intuition, that the composition moved towards perfection with the precision and inevitability of a mathematical equation.
Maurice Ravel
It is at night… that the mind is most clear, that we are most able to hold all our life in the palm of our skull.
Brian Aldiss
Hollywood wants its heroes to be virtuous, but it defines virtue in a way that excludes any action that is self-interested. If virtue means putting others ahead of self, then it’s clear that most people, let alone most capitalists, aren’t very virtuous.
Alex Tabarrok
It’s clear that he was incredibly courageous in his critique of white supremacy, wealth inequality, and imperial power as it relates to war in particular. But it’s easy to deodorize Martin King, to sanitize or sterilize him. And I simply want to reveal his radical love and his radical analysis as what they really were.
Cornel West
Well, we have nothing to hide. Our history is an open book. They may find what they are looking for, but the fact is the history of the church is clear and open and leads to faith and strength and virtues.
Gordon B. Hinckley
A little girl who finds a puzzle frustrating might ask her busy mother (or teacher) for help. The child gets one message if her mother expresses clear pleasure at the request and quite another if mommy responds with a curt ‘Don’t bother me – I’ve got important work to do.’
Daniel Goleman
So my view’s quite clear. I believe Cryptocurrencies, bitcoin is the first example, i believe they’re going to Change the world.
Richard Brown
You seem so clear about who you are. So certain that you are just right as you are, that for all your intelligence and maybe in spite of it, you never seem to need a second opinion.
Alice Walker
Greatness starts with a clear vision of the future.
Simon Sinek
Is that a birthday? ’tis, alas! too clear; ‘Tis but the funeral of the former year.
Alexander Pope
If you are with a fully enlightened being, a jivan mukta, liberated soul, the quality of light is so clear, that you don’t really know that it is there until later.
Frederick Lenz
What I want to make clear though is that we oppose terrorism in any form. However, any operation against terrorism should be under the framework of the United Nations and follow the fundamental principles of international laws.
Nong ?uc Manh
No sadder sound salutes you than the clear, Wild laughter of the loon.
Celia Thaxter
I say that to my colleagues, by the way, in the internal Cabinet meetings, I say, ‘Look, I want to be very clear about what I want.’ I just – I don’t want a peace process, I want a peace result.
Benjamin Netanyahu
The sun,–the bright sun, that brings back, not light alone, but new life, and hope, and freshness to man–burst upon the crowded city in clear and radiant glory. Through costly-coloured glass and paper-mended window, through cathedral dome and rotten crevice, it shed its equal ray.
Charles Dickens
It would, therefore, seem obvious that patriotism as a feeling is bad and harmful, and as a doctrine is stupid. For it is clear that if each people and each State considers itself the best of peoples and States, they all live in a gross and harmful delusion.
Leo Tolstoy
I think my life dramatically shifted when I met Lucas [Goodman] and it wasn’t even planned. I had a very clear vision of what I was going to do.
Jillian Hervey
Yeah, well, that’s what you said the last time it did this, and it was doing it that time too,’ Tiercel said waspishly. Clear as mud,’ Harrier muttered.
Mercedes Lackey
The Government have made it clear that the constitutional treaty will be ratified in the UK only after a referendum.
Geoff Hoon
We must be clear about where we’re going if we want anyone to help us get there.
Simon Sinek
I want to make it clear that I do not judge or condemn any woman who has had an abortion, but every abortion is a tragedy and up to 100,000 abortions a year is this generation’s legacy of unutterable shame.
Tony Abbott
It is now becoming clear that everything can – and probably did – come from nothing.
Robert Matthews
Let us consider that we are all partially insane. It will explain us to each other; it will unriddle many riddles; it will make clear and simple many things which are involved in haunting and harassing difficulties and obscurities now.
Mark Twain
Democrats talk about programs like Social Security or Medicare, but it’s not clear to most voters what Democrats’ core moral values are.
Jonathan Haidt
It was clear to me that the vulnerable point of the American Grandmaster (Bobby Fischer) was in double-edged, hanging, irrational positions, where he often failed to find a win even in a won position
Efim Geller
Muddy water will become clear if allowed to stand undisturbed, and so too will the mind become clear if it is allowed to be still.
Ming-Dao Deng
What I find really difficult is making career decisions. Normally it will take me two weeks, until the very last minute and I have to say yes or no. For a couple of weeks, I will tune everyone out who is giving me advice, so that I can make a clear decision on my own and it takes time.
Paul Walker
In recurring episodes over the next couple of decades, the minority view gradually won. A profusion of factors differentiates each case from the others, including naked partisanship on both sides, but the trend has been clear.
Michael Kinsley
I just can’t vote to go to war unless I think there’s a real clear-cut American purpose in the war, that we’re going to win and that we’re not going fight for stalemate.
Rand Paul
Most good writing is clear, vigorous, honest, alive, sensuous, appropriate, unsentimental, rhythmic, without pretension, fresh, metaphorical, evocative in sound, economical, authoritative, surprising, memorable, and light.
Ken Macrorie
Conscious breath control is a useful tool for achieving a relaxed, clear state of mind.
Andrew Weil
What is clear is that the earth is mandating that the human community assume a responsibility never assigned to any previous generation…Our task at this critical moment is to awaken the energies needed to create the new world and to evoke a universal communion of all parts of life.
Thomas Berry
So I don’t really have a clear plan, in terms of music, as to where I want to head in the future.
Nobuo Uematsu
There is always a well-known solution to every human problem – neat, plausible, and wrong.
H. L. Mencken
It is clear that the main element of any United States policy toward the Soviet Union must be that of long-term, patient but firm and vigilant containment of Russian expansive tendencies.
George F. Kennan
The first and indispensable requisite of happiness is a clear conscience.
Edward Gibbon
Consciousness makes the individual careful to maintain his own existence; and if this were not so, there would be no surety for the preservation of the species. From all this it is clear that individuality is not a form of perfection, but rather a limitation; and so to be freed from it is not loss but gain.
Arthur Schopenhauer
Trump’s principal policies make clear what’s going to happen. This gives an opportunity. Right now it’s going to take hard work, but it’s possible that there could be a real revival of the labor movement.
Noam Chomsky
One is happy as a result of one’s own efforts, once one knows of the necessary ingredients of happiness-simple tastes, a certain degree of courage, self-denial to a point, love of work, and, above all, a clear conscience. Happiness is no vague dream, of that I now feel certain.
George Sand
When a man speaks the truth in the spirit of truth, his eye is as clear as the heavens. When he has base ends, and speaks falsely, the eye is muddy, and sometimes asquint.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Football offers us a sanitized spectacle of combat that has a clear resolution, which we need more and more today given our incoherent overseas “wars.”
Steve Almond
I wanted to play this part: the goofy rock and roller who can’t hang up his guitar when it’s clear to everyone else that he should.
D. B. Sweeney
Like one of [Donald] Trump`s sons said this is a huge step down for him to run for president. Like he`s not doing it – let`s just be clear.
Chris Hayes
If you’d asked me some years ago, I would have said [Dalai Lama] is an extraordinarily compassionate, clear-sighted, calm human being. But now, I’m more convinced than ever that his political positions as well as his spiritual positions arise out of such precise and realistic thinking that they’re extremely sound.
Pico Iyer
The thing about hitting kids is, think about if you were doing the same thing to another adult. Hitting your kid is really the same as hitting your employee or wife, and the issue become pretty clear when you think about it that way.
Zach Braff
I am busy with my work. My path is clear.
Mother Teresa
The image I had was very clear, and so in that way The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane began like other books.
Kate DiCamillo
To say what we should be or do and not link it with a clear exposition of what God has done about our failure to be or do perfectly as He wills is to reject the grace of God and to lead people to lust after self-help and self-improvemen t in a way that, to call a spade a spade, is godless.
Graeme Goldsworthy
For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach.
J. R. R. Tolkien
I’m happy to see the union come together. We really need to clear up the public perception of what’s going on.
Eric Byrnes
It is quite clear that compelling content, which is made available on economic terms that respect the intellectual rights of owners, can be a tremendous spur to the growth of broadband networks.
John Doerr
An average person who develops the habit of setting clear priorities and getting important tasks completed quickly will run circles around a genius who talks a lot and makes wonderful plans but gets very little done.
Brian Tracy
We cannot afford to have any large section of the business world in doubt whether they have broken the laws or not, and we cannot let the laws become a dead letter through vagueness. In this view it is clear that an administrative commission can render invaluable service.
John Bates Clark
One of the things that became clear, and which was actually rather disturbing, was the fact that there was a view which was being expressed by people whose scientific credentials you can’t question
Thabo Mbeki
A workshop is a way of renting an audience, and making sure you’re communicating what you think you’re communicating. It’s so easy as a young writer to think you’re been very clear when in fact you haven’t.
Octavia Butler
When words & manners leave you no space for yourself
very personal
very clear
& your obstructions will join you or disappear.
Ntozake Shange
We must have as clear a picture as we can of the Australia that we want to achieve at the end of that time.
Lionel Murphy
Our long-term objective is clear: to replace the Labour Party as the progressive wing of politics in this country.
Jo Grimond
I did not think that I was angry, but clearly anger was reflected in my writing. I did not think that I had been affected emotionally, but it was clear from my writing that I was still very emotional about the trial some six months after it ended.
Christopher Darden
For the past 50 years, we’ve been fishing the seas like we clear-cut forests. It’s hard to overstate the destruction. Ninety percent of large fish, the ones we love – the tunas, the halibuts, the salmons, swordfish – they’ve collapsed.
Dan Barber
Every human being is a raindrop. And when enough of the raindrops become clear and coherent they then become the power of the storm.
John Trudell
Don’t get involved in partial problems, but always take flight to where there is a free view over the whole single great problem, even if this view is still not a clear one.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
The rules of wildlife are simple and clear, which is not the case for men.
Laurent Baheux
I think there are definitely two types of student: the academic kids and the 50% who fail. It’s very clear to see – it’s fact. We’re not doing enough for those who fail; they need a more physical, tactile approach, involving people skills, team-building, problem-solving, building things.
Jamie Oliver
Occasional observers of horror movies have a nasty habit of asking why it is that there is always some poor misguided soul who opens the door to the cellar or to the attic or to the crypt when it’s quite clear that no sane person would even consider it.
Andrew Tudor
I think the scientists have really caught the attention of the people of this country, and of course, they elected representatives by their very clear pronouncement that if we don’t do something, we’ll be in a lot of trouble.
Barbara Boxer
Doing a straight-forward, clear-cut task that has a beginning and an end balances out the complexity-without-end that often vexes the rest of my life. Sacred simplicity.
Robert Fulghum
God’s Word does not say, “Call unto me, and you will thereby be trained into the happy art of knowing how to be denied. Ask, and you will learn sweet patience by getting nothing.” Far from it. But it is definite, clear and positive: “Ask, and it shall be given unto you.”
Edward McKendree Bounds
It was frightening because it was the first time I had gotten a sense of how serious the problem was. It became clear from his notes that he felt the president himself was involved.
Fred F. Fielding
If I could turn down the noise of my own will and choiceI could hear the truth of my life in a clear voice. I will bow down my head to the wisdom of my heart.
Carrie Newcomer
A clear idea about the nature of quality in art will always result in inferior art tailored to it.
Walter Darby Bannard
To be clear, geoengineering won’t solve global warming. It’s not a ‘techno-fix.’ It would be enormously risky and almost certainly lead to troubling unforeseen consequences.
Jamais Cascio
The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period.
Donald Trump
There is nothing so clear-sighted and sensible as a noble mind in a low estate.
Jane Porter
I definitely want to make it very clear to everybody that the educational institution that we have, the school that Will and I have, is not a Scientology school. And that, you know, I know there’s been, you know, a lot of buzz around that idea and that it is not my desire to, you know, teach Scientology at all.
Jada Pinkett Smith
I’m looking forward to going out at the concert with a clear head, with a clear mind, with a clear spirit and experiencing whatever it is. It’s great.
Lenny Kravitz
Once boys’ and men’s challenges are clear, the question ‘why now’ quickly becomes ‘why didn’t we see this sooner?’ The answer? Virtually every society that survived did so by socializing its sons to be disposable.
Warren Farrell
At the next General Election, voters face a clear choice: deregulation and less interference in everyday life with the Conservatives, or yet more regulation and interference under Mr Blair.
John Redwood
Hair that gleams can send a clear sign that you’re young and in your prime, whatever your actual age.
Helen Fisher
There’s been quite a clear upswing in nationalist sentiments. Everyone is talking about it, in Turkey as well.
Orhan Pamuk
Cleaning is my favorite way to relax. I clear things out and get rid of the stuff I don’t need. When the food pantry and the refrigerator are organized, I feel less stressed.
Jennifer Morrison
God has given us evidence sufficiently clear to convince those with an open heart and mind.
Blaise Pascal
This world is full of remedies. But you have no remedy until God opens a window for you. You may not be aware of that remedy just now. In the hour of need it will be made clear to you. The Prophet said God made a remedy for every pain.
But in his Farewell Address, George Washington made it clear that he perceived no greater threat to the American experiment than a partisan demagogue who ‘agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against the other’
John Avlon
America must not ignore the threat gathering against us. Facing clear evidence of peril, we cannot wait for the final proof, the smoking gun that could come in the form of a mushroom cloud.
George W. Bush
Astronomy, that micography of heaven, is the most magnificent of the sciences. … Astronomy has its clear side and its luminous side; on its clear side it is tinctured with algebra, on its luminous side with poetry.
Victor Hugo
Something’s that written out is okay, but it’s not always a clear indication of what a person means.
Debbie Harry
Clear, crisp, and compelling. . . . Mitzvah Girls is a thoughtful look at the world of Jewish girls who grow up in 21st-century America, but don’t really.
David Wolpe
It is clear that the flame of True Freedom had passed with naval supremacy and constitutional, consultative government from the United Provinces to Great Britain, where it was regarded with quite as much national pride.
Peter Padfield
The trouble is nowadays that parts of the media operate in a very partisan way. There’s no point in complaining about it, that’s the way it is. But let’s be clear, a lot of it is driven by the views of a pretty small number of people, rather than a normal standard of journalism.
Tony Blair
Heat and animosity, contest and conflict, may sharpen the wits, although they rarely do; they never strengthen the understanding, clear the perspicacity, guide the judgment, or improve the heart.
Walter Savage Landor
I’m someone who has always been quite clear about what I like. In the studio, I’m not a control freak but I know what I want.
Sophie Ellis Bextor
If you would have a clear evidence that little love, that little faith, that little zeal, you have is true? Then live up to that love, live up to that faith, live up to that zeal that you have; and this will be evidence beyond all contradiction.
Thomas Brooks
There are certain sacred things in my life that I would never talk about. Because they are clear in my head, I can walk freely around the opposite side. I keep them completely separate in my mind.
Heather Armstrong
When managers overdo micromanaging of others, they probably hired the wrong people or failed to give them a clear idea of what each one is to accomplish. I prefer to train employees to be self-managers, just as in an orchestra each performer knows his or her role without being micromanaged.
Philip Kotler
What the head makes cloudy
the heart makes clear
Don Henley
Order my footsteps by Thy Word and make my heart sincere; let sin have no dominion, Lord, but keep my conscience clear.
Isaac Watts
Clear therefore thy head, and rally, and manage thy thoughts rightly, and thou wilt save time, and see and do thy business well; for thy judgment will be distinct, thy mind free, and the faculties strong and regular.
William Penn
How deluded we sometimes are by the clear notions we get out of books. They make us think that we really understand things of which we have no practical knowledge at all.
Thomas Merton
Memory, so complete and clear or so evasive, has to be ended, has to be put aside, as if one were leaving a chapel and bringing the prayer to an end in one’s head.
Harold Brodkey
Unlike many people today, Jesus did not teach that all religions in the world are simply different paths up the same mountain of truth that leads to God. Jesus could not have been more clear: he offers the only way to heaven.
Robert Jeffress
To pray is to mount on eagle’s wings above the clouds and get into the clear heaven where God dwelleth.
Charles Spurgeon
Yet it ought to be clear that a minimum wage law is, at best, a limited weapon for combatting the evil of low wages, and that the possible good to be achieved by such a law can exceed the possible harm only in proportion as its aims are mode.
Henry Hazlitt
I do believe that enduring geological features are important, though I don’t think I can be clear about exactly why.
Tracy Kidder
In Congress, while the House’s proposed defense budget calls for significant increases, it also cuts 11 billion dollars from veterans spending – including healthcare and disability pay. Be clear: we can’t equate spending on veterans with spending on defense.
Jennifer Granholm
When we really sit back with a smile on our face is when we run into a situation we can understand, where the facts are ascertainable and clear, and the course of action obvious.
Warren Buffett
Literally from the moment I came in the door of MIT, it was very clear that a highly productive 40-year partnership between U.S. research universities and the federal government was badly eroding.
Charles M. Vest
Raw, naked truth exchanged between the black man and the white man is what a whole lot more of is needed in this country – to clear the air of the racial mirages, cliches, and lies that this country’s very atmosphere has been filled with for four hundred years.
Alex Haley
I went through life like an idiot for a great deal of the time, saying there’s nothing I would change. That was a very arrogant thing to say. There’s a lot I would change. There are people I would have steered clear of.
Hugh Leonard
Americans have made it clear we want to build a more sustainable future. I am excited to harness that energy and see what we can create together.
Frances Beinecke
I wake up feeling clear and energized in the morning What is most profound for me about this light eating pattern is the flow of cosmic energy I feel coursing through my body. During the day it feels as if joy is simply running through every cell independent of external factors.
Gabriel Cousens
We will maintain heading until he’s committed, then I want a hardskew-turn to starboard. As hard as you can make it, Chief. I want our starboard broadside on him as he passes below us, and then I want to cut down across his stern and stick it right up his kilt. Clear? (Honor Harrington)
David Weber
I am aware of myself. And, of course, the only things that are aware of themselves and conscious of their individuality are irritated eyes, cut fingers, sore teeth. A healthy eye, finger, tooth might as well not even be there. Isn’t it clear that individual consciousness is just sickness?
Yevgeny Zamyatin
Not only is it important for me to create a 100% cruelty-free brand, but also send out a very clear message to both consumers and companies out there: testing on animals in the name of beauty is cruel and unnecessary.
Kat Von D
Thanksgiving speaks in clear, crisp tones of forgotten terms, like integrity – bravery – respect – freedom – discipline – sacrifice – godliness.
Charles R. Swindoll
I’ve been really opinionated my whole life. I was raised to be opinionated. I was raised to debate at the dinner table – my father demanded it – and you had to be able to debate in a confident and clear way.
Jeanine Tesori
We should be concerned about the impact of climate change on vulnerable populations, without question. There is nothing automatic about adaptation. But it’s clear that there is simply no science that supports claims that rising sea levels threaten civilization much less the apocalypse.
Michael Shellenberger
If you wait until those weapons pose a direct, clear, present danger to the United States, you’ve probably waited too long.
John Sununu
The seams, the laminae between the various worlds the past present and future as well as the living and the nonliving may not be as distinct and clear-cut as we have been taught or as our somewhat arbitrary clocks and calendars have led us to believe.
Rick Bass
The friend who cares makes it clear that whatever happens in the external world, being present to each other is what really matters. In fact, it matters more than pain, illness, or even death.
Henri Nouwen
Perfection is almost an illness with me, but sometimes I have moments where everything is absolutely clear and you can feel, rather than think.
Tom Ford
Children and barbarians have clear ideas of justice due to them, but no idea at all of justice due from them.
Murray Leinster
It is in the early morning hour that the unseen is seen, and that the far-off beauty and glory, vanquishing all their vagueness, move down upon us till they stand clear as crystal close over against the soul.
Sarah Smiley
The one thing that is always clear in my mind is that the people, and their stories, and the themes of life that I photograph are always more important to me than the process of photography itself.
Peter Turnley
To think of these stars that you see overhead at night, these vast worlds which we can never reach. I would annex the planets if I could; I often think of that. It makes me sad to see them so clear and yet so far.
Cecil Rhodes
This year my role is clear: I am a coach, a coach to sportsmen.
Anatoli Boukreev
Getting the word out that, yes vaccines are great, the safety data’s very, very clear, including any of these specific concerns, that’s very important to our foundation.
Bill Gates
However, FDA attempted to reverse this clear congressional intent in March, 1979, by proposing to regulate vitamins and minerals as ‘Over-The-Counter’ drugs.
Orrin Hatch
The last clear definite function of men—muscles aching to work, minds aching to create beyond the single need—this is man.
John Steinbeck
Yeah well I think her relationships with people become really clear, and I think they all make tons of sense in line with Ultron as well.
Elizabeth Olsen
So far no one had had enough courage and intelligence to reveal me to my dear Germans. My problems are new, my psychological horizon frighteningly comprehensive, my language bold and clear; there may well be no books written in German which are richer in ideas and more independent than mine.
Friedrich Nietzsche
U.S. Supreme Court on May 15, 1911, couched its decision in these clear terms: ‘Seven men and a corporate machine have conspired against their fellow citizens. For the safety of the Republic we now decree that this dangerous conspiracy must be ended by November 15th.
Jim Marrs
To be truly happy, you need a clear sense of meaning and purpose in life.
Brian Tracy
One man is a splendid fighter — a god has made him so — one’s a dancer, another skilled at lyre and song, and deep in the next man’s chest farseeing Zeus plants the gift of judgment, good clear sense. And many reap the benefits of that treasure.
Let the fairy tale begin on a winter’s morning, then, with one drop of blood newly-fallen on the ivory snow: a drop as bright as a clear-cut ruby, red as a single spot of claret on the lace cuff.
Ellen Kushner
‘With God all things are possible’ (Mk. 10:27). With God the thought itself is deed. He speaks and it is. Short and clear. And all the worlds stand by the Word of God.
John of Kronstadt
Obviously if you’re positive, then there’s positive energy flowing in your body. The moments are smoother – thought process is smoother. But if there is doubt, then also your body’s not going to move that well, your thought process is not clear.
Sachin Tendulkar
The whole object of science is to synthesize, and so simplify; and did we but know the uttermost of a subject we could make it singularly clear.
Percival Lowell
Your small goals are clear and you understand the actions and know the path you need to take to reach these goals. In your mind, they’re achievable and you know it’s just a matter of time.
Jean Charest
Usually when Obama says, ‘Let me be clear,’ he’s about to get into some very unclear sh*t.
Jon Stewart
simplicity is a thing beautiful in itself, like clear light.
Julia McNair Wright
I would rather be of clear mind and decision with the wrong club than with an unclear mind and the right club.
Walter Hagen
Our military strength is a prerequisite to peace, but let it be clear we maintain this strength in the hope it will never be used.
Ronald Reagan
It is increasingly clear that no matter what party is in power, so long as our national security needs keep rising, an economy hampered by restrictive tax rates will never produce enough jobs or enough profits.
John F. Kennedy
Scripture is like a pair of spectacles which dispels the darkness and gives us a clear view of God.
John Calvin
When you go into the world today, before you leave your home, promise yourself that you’ll find at least one miracle. Without any limits or bounds on what you think it should look like, simply state for yourself your clear intention that of the many miracles that cross your path, you’ll recognize one of them.
Gregg Braden
A lot has been written about the Internet bust. From my point of view, it’s quite clear the Internet isn’t a category; the Internet is a technological infrastructure that can be deployed to facilitate a disruptive business model or a sustaining business model.
Clayton Christensen
It is clear to all that the animal organism is a highly complex system consisting of an almost infinite series of parts connected both with one another and, as a total complex, with the surrounding world, with which it is in a state of equilibrium.
Ivan Pavlov
If there were a clear prospect that such evils were part of a barbarian past, then at least we might find a small crumb of comfort. No such prospect exists: no scientific analysis can even remotely answer or account for past and present horrors of human behaviour.
Simon Conway Morris
It is the ultimate luxury to combine passion and contribution. It’s also a very clear path to happiness.
Sheryl Sandberg
The way of loving kindness is what is to be accepted. Love! The benefit is clear. Rage, hate are the way of chaos and darkness – to be rejected.
Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo
I maintain the importance of an absolute prohibition against torture, while acknowledging that even absolute prohibitions can sometimes be broken. If that is a contradiction, it is a contradiction that ethics has to embrace, or else it becomes like glass: hard, clear, but fatally inflexible.
Julian Baggini
If people would forget about utopia! When rationalism destroyed heaven and decided to set it up here on earth, that most terrible of all goals entered human ambition. It was clear there’d be no end to what people would be made to suffer for it.
Nadine Gordimer
I prefer to underwrite. Simple, clear as a country creek.
Truman Capote
If Heaven were not clear it might rend. If Earth were not firm it might crumble.
If you have a clear mind . . . you won’t have to search for direction. Direction will come to you.
Phil Jackson
Though we must hold to our faith in the evolution of species, there is little evidence as to how it has come about, and no clear proof that the process is continuing in any considerable degree at the present time.
William Bateson
Wherever you may go, the least plant may bring you clear remembrance of the Creator.
Saint Basil
If a man can be properly said to love something, it must be clear that he feels affection for it as a whole, and does not love part of it to the exclusion of the rest.
To me experimental fiction ultimately is about the experiment and I’m not interested in experiments for their own sake, and if anything I’ve always steered a bit clear of that kind of thing, because it seems gimmicky to play around with text rather than do the work of telling a story and creating characters.
Steve Erickson
The near-term attacks … will either rival or exceed the 9/11 attacks… And it’s pretty clear that the nation’s capital and New York city would be on any list.
Tom Ridge
A clear and focused mind will last a lifetime. Getting your mind in shape is nothing less than the key to sustainable success in the world.
Russell Simmons
It is unfortunate we were put in the position where the Republicans made it clear they were ready to let everything fall unless they got these tax cuts.
Joe Biden
The process of liberation brings with it a profound conflict. Having the project be clear is not enough. What is necessary is a spirituality of resistance and of renewed hope to turn ever back to the struggle in the face of the defeats of the oppressed.
Leonardo Boff
For skincare, I’m a Clean and Clear girl. Especially with the humidity in Georgia, Clean and Clear has been pretty good to me with all of the makeup we have to wear. My skin really responds to that product. I’m also a big fan of Kiehl’s under-eye avocado cream.
Candice Accola
Reagan did not suffer from the dismal plague of doubts which has assailed so many politicians in our times and which has rendered them incapable of clear decisions.
Margaret Thatcher
The arts, like language, emerged spontaneously and universally in similar forms across cultures, employing imaginative and intellectual capacities that had clear survival value.
Denis Dutton
Without calling the overall national issue a bubble, it’s pretty clear that it’s an unsustainable underlying pattern.
Alan Greenspan
We judge people and initiatives by their results, and we expect events to happen for good, understandable reason. But our clear visions of inevitability are often only illusions.
Leonard Mlodinow
The Olympic stadium may have been built only in the early 1970s but it was clear for a long time it had no future. For many reasons it is not good enough for modern football and today’s fans.
Franz Beckenbauer
Allegories, when well chosen, are like so many tracks of light in a discourse, that make everything about them clear and beautiful.
Joseph Addison
The great enemy of clear language is insincerity.
George Orwell
It is only as powerful as it is relevant in a given scenario. I think we need to be clear it is not a magic bullet in post-conviction cases.
Chris Asplen
Imagine that your mind is like a calm, clear lake or a vast empty sky: Ripples appear on the surface of the lake and clouds pass across the sky, but they soon disappear without altering the natural stillness.
Kathleen McDonald
Julius Caesar divorced his wife Pompeia, but declared at the trial that he knew nothing of what was alleged against her and Clodius. When asked why, in that case, he had divorced her, he replied: Because I would have the chastity of my wife clear even of suspicion.
The warnings about global warming have been extremely clear for a long time. We are facing a global climate crisis. It is deepening. We are entering a period of consequences.
Al Gore
If a man needs an elaborate tombstone in order to remain in the memory of his country, it is clear that his living at all was an act of absolute superfluity.
Oscar Wilde
