Anton Chekhov
We moved in 8th grade, so 7th grade I was doing okay, and then 8th grade, everything fell apart. I had no fashion sense to speak of. We only had a couple of hair care products back then. We didn’t have all these things to tame your hair. I had glasses; I had braces. I had it all.
Lauren Graham
I was a bookworm, and very skinny with big, thick glasses. I never went on dates and guys were afraid of me because I was smart. So I got contact lenses, started to dress a little better and tried not to talk about Plato with boys. It worked!
Julianne Moore
Photography is space, light, texture, of course, but the really important element is time – that nanosecond when the image organizes itself on the ground glass.

Jane Hirshfield
I always was into it, just seeing guys growing up on TV in postgame conferences and seeing how they’re dressed, glasses they’re wearing. That kind of just always was something that caught my eye. Now I got the opportunity to show off what I wear, so I just try to take advantage of it.
Tyler Herro

Paul Gascoigne

Terry Pratchett
There was every reason to honestly say that 3D was a gimmick. And it’s largely true. And it’s largely pretty bad. When you put a filter in front of the projector, and you put on your glasses and cut the light in half again, the movies are dim as hell, and they give you headaches and eye strain, and it’s terrible.
Douglas Trumbull
I love pretty things; and I hate to look in the glass and see something that isn’t pretty. It makes me feel so sorrowful—just as I feel when I look at any ugly thing. I pity it because it isn’t beautiful.
Lucy Maud Montgomery
Rainstorms are incredible: falling shards of glass, the air full of diamonds.
Lauren Oliver
To me, the lasting impression of any good wine is the thought of its maker. Those whose efforts transformed the fruits of the soil into a finished work of art. Those who pulled from the hectic passage of time an ordered memory. They are immortalized by their wine in my glass.
Dave Chambers
The Internet is the stained glass picture of the 21st century.
Diana Butler Bass
The weapons that were once outside sharpening themselves on war are now indoors there, in the fortress, fragile in glass cases; Why is it (I’m thinking of the careful moulding round the stonework archways) that in this time, such elaborate defences keep things that are no longer (much) worth defending?
Margaret Atwood
You can’t look at a glass half full or empty if it’s overflowing.
Kanye West

Gary W. Keller
If you subtracted all of the great artists who never drank, who never went to excess, you wouldn’t have any more art left. What kind of poem are you gonna get out of a glass of iced tea?
David Lee Roth
Tear to a glass eye. Tear to a glass eye.
Triple H
I’m blind without my glasses.
Adam Ant
If I saw a glass of wine repeatedly presented to a man, and he took no notice of it, I should be apt to think that he was blind or uncivil. A juster philosophy might teach me rather to think that my eyes deceived me, and that the offer was not really what I conceived it to be.
Thomas Malthus
Desire outweighs footwork when it comes to crashing the glass
Bill Self
It is fitting that yesteryear’s swashbuckling newspaper reporter has turned into today’s solemn young sobersides nursing a glass of watered white wine after a day of toiling over computer databases in a smoke-free, noise-free newsroom.

Maureen Dowd
I would like to raise my glass to friendship between Russia and the United States.
Richard Lugar

Kevin Hearne
Life is like a prism. What you see depends on how you turn the glass.

My life is flashing lights and pointing fingers and uninvited visitors. Inches away, humans flatten their little hands against the wall of glass that separates us.The glass says you are this and we are that and that is how it will always be.
Katherine Applegate
Pessimists, we’re told, look at a glass containing 50% air and 50% water and see it as half empty. Optimists, in contrast, see it as half full. Engineers, of course, understand the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
Bob Lewis
Cold glass, how you insert yourself Between myself and myself. I scratch like a cat. The blood that runs is dark fruit- An effect, a cosmetic. You smile. No, it is not fatal.

Jackson Pollock

Phoebe Bridgers
Beauty is but a vain and doubtful good; a shining gloss that fadeth suddenly; a flower that dies when it begins to bud; a doubtful good, a gloss, a glass, a flower, lost, faded, broken, dead within an hour.
William Shakespeare
I think that the vice president is a person reflecting a half-glass-full mentality.

George Carlin
People are constantly asking Portia and me if we are going to have children. We thought about it. We love to be around children after they’ve been fed and bathed. But we ultimately decided that we don’t want children of our own. There is far too much glass in our house.
Ellen DeGeneres
Loneliness sometimes gives me a quantity of creativeness – you’re drinking another glass of wine and you’re feeling even worse. Art doesn’t work without pain; art also exists for compensating pain.

Helmut Jahn
I have not forgotten that you can see the world through pieces of coloured glass.
R. K. Laxman
Karl Lagerfeld looks very tough because of the glasses, and he has all these rings and the leather gloves, and he’s so smart. But he’s a very nice person… when he comes into a room or studio, he is going to say hello to each person, and the same when he leaves.
Carine Roitfeld
Peppermint swirled into my nostrils, sharp as glass, then raspberry almost to sweet, like too-ripe fruit. Apple, crisp and pure. Nuts, buttery, warm, earthy
Maggie Stiefvater
American love — like coke in green glass bottles…they don’t make it anymore.
Alan Moore
Without the assistance of eating and drinking, the most sparkling wit would be as heavy as a bad soufflГ©, and the brightest talent as dull as a looking-glass on a foggy day.
Alexis Soyer
I was selling stuff probably since I could remember, like 6 or 7 years old. I was always out there helping my mom and dad sell watches, glasses, CDs, DVDs, stuff like that. Whatever we could put our hands on. I did it until I was around 17. But I was just doing it because I had to. There was no other option.
Giannis Antetokounmpo
I love Philip Glass’ work, not only as a film composer but also as a musician. The film score work that he does always amazes and shocks me.
Park Chan-wook
Nothing in Nature’s sober found,
But an eternal Health goes round.
Fill up the Bowl then, fill it high–
Fill all the Glasses there; for why
Should every Creature Drink but I?
Why, Man of Morals, tell me why?
Abraham Cowley
Outcast on a cold star, unable to feel anything but an awful helpless numbness. I look down into the warm, earthy world. Into a nest of lovers’ beds, baby cribs, meal tables, all the solid commerce of life in this earth, and feel apart, enclosed in a wall of glass.
Sylvia Plath
You know how we make a Scotch and water in this home?” “No, sir,” Gus said. “We pour Scotch into a glass and then call to mind thoughts of water, and then we mix the actual Scotch with the abstracted idea of water.
John Green
Friendship is like a glass ornament, once it is broken it can rarely be put back together exactly the same way.
Charles Kingsley

Helena Bonham Carter
On one occasion some one put a very little wine into a [glass], and said that it was sixteen years old. ‘It is very small for its age,’ said Gnathaena.
The alchemist of the West has turned stone into glass But my alchemy has transmuted glass into flint Pharaohs of today have stalked me in vain
Muhammad Iqbal
I used to draw stickmen with star glasses when I was at school. I didn’t realise that would end up being me! The whole idea was that the glasses had mirrors, and if a youngster looked at me, they’d see themselves. Everybody is a star.
Bootsy Collins
Between me and life is a faint glass. No matter how sharply I see and understand life, I cannot touch it.

Craig Stone

John Suckling
I was that kid with the glasses and the hungry expression who haunted every library book sale and used bookstore in town: the one who always has a book in one hand and is reaching for the next book with the other. There’s one in every town.
Seanan McGuire
The small wisdom is like water in a glass: clear, transparent, pure. The great wisdom is like the water in the sea: dark, mysterious, impenetrable.
Rabindranath Tagore
We always get dressings and sauces on the side. However, we definitely like our glass of wine – or three sometimes. We order dessert but just take a few bites. I stopped buying processed foods. The hardest part is teaching this to our kids, but slowly we’re making progress.
Dayna Devon
Sir, pay no attention to the people who say the glass is half empty, because 32% means it’s 2/3 empty. There’s still some liquid in that glass is my point, but I wouldn’t drink it. The last third is usually backwash. (Said to President Bush at the White House Correspondents Dinner)
Stephen Colbert
I love to come in and play with a wig or glasses or clothes. I love using props. I’m from the Peter Sellers school of trying to prepare for the character.
Dan Aykroyd

The bird, the bee, the running child are all the same to the sliding glass door.
Demetri Martin
I find more people want to eat a little less. My generation, we’re all watching our figures. They want to go to the bar and eat a few snacks, have a couple of cocktails or glasses of wine, and go home. People don’t sit down at the table and have a whole three or four courses.
Todd English
My tongue is pierced with glass.
Federico Garcia Lorca
There’s only one person who needs a glass of water oftener than a small child tucked in for the night, and that’s a writer sitting down to write.
Mignon McLaughlin
The force of a death should be enormous but how can you know what kind of man you’ve killed or who was the braver and stronger if you have to peer through layers of glass that deliver the image but obscure the meaning of the act? War has a conscience or it’s ordinary murder.
Don DeLillo
You’re the type who thinks of the glass as being half full, instead of half empty. “No,” she said, “I’m just grateful for the glass.
Richard Paul Evans
I hate flatscreens. I don’t want to see anything in that much pixilation. I don’t need to see the pimple on someone’s face. I love the world through glass. The more old, dusty and tainted that glass is, the prettier and more impressionistic that is to me. I don’t need to see everything perfectly. I don’t like it.
Drew Barrymore
There was a still life on Billy’s bedside table-two pills, an ashtray with three lipstick-stained cigarettes in it, one cigarette still burning, and a glass of water. The water was dead. So it goes. Air was trying to get out of the dead water. Bubbles were clinging to the walls of the glass, too weak to climb out.
Kurt Vonnegut
Belshazzar had a letter,– He never had but one; Belshazzar’s correspondence Concluded and begun In that immortal copy The conscience of us all Can read without its glasses On revelation’s wall.

Tell me what’s the difference
between hope and waiting
because my heart doesn’t know
It constantly cuts itself on the glass of waiting
It constantly gets lost in the fog of hope

Lefty Gomez
The colour of the water seems to be the colour of the glass into which it has been poured’.

The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names – but always me.
George S. Patton
You should drink at least eight glasses of water a day in order to stay regular, lose weight, and detoxify. Our bodies are mostly made of water, and yet we lose two to three quarts of it every day through perspiration and other bodily functions.
Suzanne Somers
I tell you these stories because these things happen to everyone. It’s not about being starched or polished or cute or polite. It’s about having ears that stick out, about breaking yet another glass. It’s about seeing something for the first time and making a million mistakes and not ever getting completely discouraged.
Maira Kalman
Let’s put it this way: the glass is half-empty, but the fact is, I can always get another drink
Ville Valo

Ted Nugent
Your heart is like glass, if it breaks, it’s pretty hard to put it back together again.
Jared Leto
When she set Shane’s glass of Coke down in front of him, she did it with probably a little too much emphasis; he glanced up at her with a question-mark expression.[…] ‘‘What?’’ Shane asked her, and took a drink. ‘‘Did I forget to say thanks? Because, thanks. Best Coke ever. Did you make it yourself? Special recipe?
Rachel Caine
It meant nothing to him any longer, only a faint tinge of sadness–and somewhere within him, a drop of pain moving briefly and vanishing, like a raindrop on the glass of a window, its course in the shape of a question mark.
Ayn Rand
Wanted: A dog that neither barks nor bites, eats broken glass and shits diamonds.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
At the beginning of every winter people are careful to install storm windows. These extra panes of glass protect their houses against the bitter winds. We do something very similar to protect our minds through the practice of meditation.
Eknath Easwaran
It is … impossible to keep one’s excellence in a little glass casket, like a jewel, to take it out whenever wanted. On the contrary, it can only be conserved by continuous and good practice.
Adolf Anderssen
Colin Singleton’s distance from his glasses made him realize the problem: myopia. He was nearsighted. The future lay before him, inevitable but invisible.
John Green
I was playing golf in Palm Springs and after a round I asked the waitress in a restaurant to bring me a glass of iced tea and lemonade. A lady sitting nearby heard me and asked the waitress to bring her a “Palmer,” too. The name caught on and the beverage quickly spread around the country.
Arnold Palmer
I was stuck with the dark glasses. They took all these pictures that went around the world. I guess once you become successful, you don’t want to change anything too drastically.
Roy Orbison
Life just makes so much more sense with black framed glasses on.
Nicole Richie
The house I grew up in had large plate-glass windows, which birds frequently crashed into headfirst. My father helped me assemble a bird hospital, consisting of a few shoe boxes, some old rags, and tiny dishes for water and food.
Patti Davis
Use your eyes. Do not enter unfamiliar areas that you cannot observe first. Make it a practice to swing wide around corners, use window glass for rearward visibility, and get something solid behind you when you pause.
Jeff Cooper
There’s nothing better than online shopping in your PJ’s with a glass of wine with the kids asleep!
Helen Wilson
When friendships are real, they are not glass threads or frost-work , but the solidest thing we know.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

David Berg
Right now, I’m standing behind the glass, and I guess that’s a metaphor for how my life will be going forward.
Angela Ruggiero
High school taught me a valuable lesson about glasses: Don’t wear them. Contacts have always seemed like too much work, so instead I just squint, figuring that if something is more than ten feet away, I’ll just deal with it when I get there.
David Sedaris
We all need something to help us unwind at the end of the day. You might have a glass of wine, or a joint, or a big delicious blob of heroin to silence your silly brainbox of its witterings but there has to be some form of punctuation, or life just seems utterly relentless.
Russell Brand
Marriage is like wine. It is not be properly judged until the second glass.

Hillary Clinton
My father once said, ‘If you’re in the desert and you’re dying of thirst, are you going to drink a glass of blood or are you going to drink a glass of water?’ I think what he was trying to say, interesting coming from my blood father, is sometimes there are people in your family that can be toxic.
Nicolas Cage
It’s like pouring oil from one glass to another down a line – in the end, you don’t have any oil left; it is all stuck to the inside of the glasses. This way, 1,000 dollars become 100 dollars by the time it reaches the people. Whereas if we get 10 dollars, we add our effort to it and the money multiplies.
Mata Amritanandamayi
Babe, you’ve destroyed a car, burned down two buildings, stapled a guy’s nuts, and you have sixteen stitches in your leg. Take a night off. Have a glass of wine, watch some television, and go to bed early.” -Ranger
Janet Evanovich
But for me, from my point of view, I don’t mind if it falls over… if you break the glass you replace the glass, if the sheep falls out you can always get a new sheep.
Damien Hirst
And so I went through the looking glass, stepped into the netherworld, where up is down and food is greed, where convex mirrors cover the walls, where death is honor and flesh is weak. It is ever so easy to go. Harder to find your way back.
Marya Hornbacher
I stare at the pile of discarded remnants and think of my mother. Did she touch that pillar there? Does her scent still linger in a fragment of glass or a splinter of wood? A terrible emptiness settles into my chest. No matter how much I go about living, there are always small reminders that make the loss fresh again.
Libba Bray
I find myself every so often looking at my ground glass as though the unrecorded image might escape me!
Edward Weston
Maybe a day will come when we may have to just put on a pair of glasses and see sports events.
Kapil Dev
I’d crawl over broken glass for Elle MacPherson or Cindy Crawford.
Jon Bon Jovi
I say that is wine,” Brett held up her glass. “We ought to toast something. ‘Here’s to royalty.'” “This wine is too good for toast-drinking, my dear. you don’t want to mix emotions up with a wine like that. you lose the taste.” Brett’s glass was empty.
Ernest Hemingway
If I’m having a fancy glass of champagne, I’ll always mix it with the champagne of beers. Because I deserve all the champagnes.
Kristen Schaal
Got up this morning and could not find my glasses. Finally had to seek assistance. Kate [Winslet] found them inside a flower arrangement.
Emma Thompson
As a college-educated twentysomething woman with cool glasses and an affinity for modern art and Ryan Adams, I had the constant experience of strangers assuming I was a liberal. I grew accustomed to the shock and horror that passed over their faces when I revealed that, yes, I am a Republican.
S.E. Cupp
Meditation is the soul’s perspective glass.
Owen Feltham
If we talk about the glass being half empty or half full, I want to know what does the glass look like from underneath the table?
Brad Thor
I may be permitted, kind reader, to doubt whether you have ever been enclosed in a glass bottle, unless some vivid dream has teased you with such magical mishaps.
E. T. A. Hoffmann
I love Wagner, but the music I prefer is that of a cat hung up by its tail outside a window and trying to stick to the panes of glass with its claws.
Charles Baudelaire
The most horrible question students ask: ‘How do you paint copper?’ ‘How do you paint flesh or glass?’ You paint everything the same way: Right color, right value, in right spot. There are no prescriptions.
Sergei Bongart
If you have a glass full of liquid you can discourse forever on its qualities, discuss whether it is cold, warm, whether it is really and truly composed of H-2-O, or even mineral water, or saki. Meditation is Drinking it!
Taisen Deshimaru
When I was into The Beatles, I cut my hair into a Beatle haircut, which looked so ridiculously stupid with my little cat-eye glasses that I wore.
Cassandra Peterson
The glass ceiling will go away when women help other women break through that ceiling.
Indra Nooyi
If you had weak eyes, they needed exercise to get strong. Glasses were like crutches. They prevented people with feeble eyes from seeing the world on their own.
Jeannette Walls
Some days seem to fit together like a stained glass window. A hundred little pieces of different color and mood that, when combined, create a complete picture.
Maggie Stiefvater
The American spirit is stronger than stone and mortar, tougher than steel and glass, and more enduring than any pain or suffering that can be inflicted on our national conscience.
Olympia Snowe
Joan Crawford is doubtless the best example of the flapper, the girl you see in smart night clubs, gowned to the apex of sophistication, toying iced glasses with a remote, faintly bitter expression, dancing deliciously, laughing a great deal, with wide, hurt eyes. Young things with a talent for living.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
He who is different from me does not impoverish me – he enriches me. Our unity is constituted in something higher than ourselves – in Man… For no man seeks to hear his own echo, or to find his reflection in the glass.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Lots of ambitious work by young artists ends up in a dumpster after its warehouse debut. So an unknown artist’s big glass vitrine holding a rotting cow’s head covered by maggots and swarms of buzzing flies may be pretty unsellable. Until the artist becomes a star. Then he can sell anything he touches .
Charles Saatchi
Wine is a living, breathing thing during its time in the bottle and in the glass. It is always changing, especially in the glass. A little oxygen can really open up and release the flavors in a complex wine, as well as mellow the rougher edge of immaturity.
Mireille Guiliano
At my core, the glass isn’t half-empty, it’s not even what I ordered in the first place.
Catherine Tate
Gentlemen, in the little moment that remains to us between the crisis and the catastrophe, we may as well drink a glass of Champagne.
Paul Claudel
3D, the ever-changing 3D. It’s great. It’s been really interesting. My family came to the set a few times, and I see them with their 3D glasses on. It’s lovely to have them there and be a part of it, and see the magic that we’re playing with, because it really is incomprehensible until you see it on a 3D screen.
Eleanor Tomlinson
It is a symbol of Irish art. The cracked looking-glass of a servant.
James Joyce
I love a good steak with a great glass of red wine. But for the TV watching, laying around doing nothing kinds of days, nothing beats a pepperoni pizza and chocolate Haagen Daas.
Erin Daniels
When you drop a glass or a plate to the ground, it makes a crashing sound. When a window shatters, a table breaks, or a picture fall of the wall, it makes noise. But as for your heart, when that breaks, it’s completely silent… and you almost wish there was a noise to distract you from the pain.
Cecelia Ahern
A poor self-image is the magnifying glass that can transform a trivial mistake or an imperfection into an overwhelming symbol of personal defeat.
David D. Burns
I lost dozens of pairs of expensive glasses because I’d put them down and then not be able to find them again.
Bonnie Tyler
Among mathematicians, even in those days, the reputation of being a good Glass Bead Game player meant a great deal; it was equivalent to being a very good mathematician.
Hermann Hesse
There’s songs that could either be taken as a conversation between two people, like “The Privateers,” or “Why,” from a much earlier record. Or “Glass Figurine.” That’s my version of a relationship song.
Andrew Bird
„Ma’am?“ She glanced up at me, pushing her glasses up her nose as she did. “Hmm? Oh, I remember you. Miss Melbourne.“ “Melrose,“ I corrected. “Are you sure? I could’ve sworn you were named after someplace in Australia.“ „Well, my first name is Sydney,“ I said, not sure if I should be encouraging her.
Richelle Mead
Without a word or hesitation, Pain took the mop from Nick. Suffering moved to pick up glass. “Wow. Where have you two been all my life?” Pain quirked and eyebrow as he mopped the floor. “Walking hand in hand with you. Haven’t you noticed?
Sherrilyn Kenyon
People who can’t see without glasses should wear them.
Malcolm Forbes
I remember my father making many things. Once we made a shed, and a man in the village came along to help. After a couple of glasses of beer, he said, ‘Give me a tape measure and I’ll make it by eye,’ and the result was so beautiful.
David Linley
A pessimist looks at his glass and says it is half empty; an optimist looks at it and says it is half full.
Josiah Stamp
I was a little fat pudgy kid with big thick glasses, and I was quiet and never said a word, you know — teachers loved me, straight-A student.
Morgan Fairchild
I’m no longer in my 20s, and I think, by default, the rose-colored glasses are off.
Sasheer Zamata
She handed him a glass of water and two Aleve gelcaps. “They’re anti-inflammatories. They will dull the pain a little bit and keep down swelling and redness. Swallow the pills, don’t chew.” “Well, I thought I’d stick them into my nose and impersonate a walrus, but if you insist, I’ll swallow them.
Ilona Andrews
Wipe your glasses with what you know.
James Joyce
The pain of life is pure salt; no more, no less. The amount of pain in life remains the same, exactly the same. But the amount of bitterness we taste depends on the container we put the pain in. So when you are in pain, the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of thingsstop being a glass. Become a lake.
Mark Nepo
Had I a careful and pleasant companion that should show me my angry face in a glass, I should not at all take it ill; to behold man’s self so unnaturally disguised and dishonored will conduce not a little to the impeachment of anger.
In all my ways of seeing – may I use new glasses, a telescope and a microscope. And may I always allow myself to see a circumstance through the tender hearts of my friends.
Mary Anne Radmacher
For some unexplained reason, it’s always the other end of the table that’s wild and raucous, with screaming laughter and a fella who plays ‘Holiday for Strings’ on water glasses.
Erma Bombeck
Affection should not be too sharp eyed, and love is not made by magnifying glasses.
Thomas Browne
I’m an advocate for change and eager to break a little glass when needed.
Ursula Burns
I would just like to say that opera is no longer about fat people in breastplates shattering wine glasses.
Lesley Garrett
When you think of how a child experiences a series of events, it feels, for so long, like she’s looking at everything from behind this glass and it’s obscured.
Jacqueline Woodson
Half full, half empty, what the hell difference does it make? If there’s something in the damn glass, drink it.
Nora Roberts
As a boy, I was ashamed to wear glasses. I memorized the eye chart, and then on the test they asked essay questions.
Woody Allen
Don’t call the world dirty because you forgot to clean your glasses.
Aaron Hill
I’m the sheen on water, Rin thought. I’m a looking glass. I’m not real.
Shannon Hale
A Gothic building engenders true religion … The light, falling through colored glass, the singular forms of the architecture, unite to give a silent image of that infinite mystery which the soul for ever feels, and never comprehends.
Madame de Stael
Seeing the glass as half empty is more positive than seeing it as half full. Through such a lens the only choice is to pour more. That is righteous pessimism
Criss Jami
I look most like myself… when I’m wearing my black, nerdy engineering glasses.
Junot Diaz
After watching my first World Series in 1977, I wanted to be Reggie Jackson. I bought a big Reggie poster. I ate Reggie candy bars. I entered a phase during which I insisted on having the same style of glasses Reggie had: gold wire frames with the double bar across.
Eric Liu
Trinity Park lies directly across from the library, Trinity Church rising like a midieval thought amidst the glass and steel towers.
Nick Flynn
I wish to live to 150 years old, but the day I die, I wish it to be with a cigarette in one hand and a glass of whiskey in the other.
Ava Gardner
Eric moved the broom experimentally and made an attempt to sweep the glass into the pan while it lay in the middle of the floor. Of course, the pan slid away. Eric scowled. I’d finally found something Eric did poorly.
Charlaine Harris
If general perception changes from seeing the glass as ‘half-full’ to seeing it as ‘half empty’ there are major innovative opportunities.
Peter Drucker
The policies that Hillary [Clinton] advocates are going to be more of the same, whether you’re looking at her cozy relationships with the banks, her refusal to support Glass-Steagall, her vagueness about what actually she’s going to do about the control of the big banks.
Jill Stein
Years, lovers, and glasses of wine. These are things that should never be counted.
Anthony Capella
You can’t just mess with somebody’s prescription, and I really like wearing glasses. It’s my eyesight and I don’t want to mess with that.
Michelle Chamuel
But lately, when I’m drunk, I feel a hostility that I’ve never known before. It is a tension deep in my gut that makes me want to yell until my face is red, knock over glasses with the back of my hand, and kick people I don’t know in the shins.
Koren Zailckas
We’ve got stained glass windows in our house; it’s those damned pigeons.
Chic Murray
Every apartment devoted to the circulation of the glass, may be regarded as a temple set apart for the performance of human sacrifices. And they ought to be fitted up like the ancient temples in Egypt, in a manner to show the real atrocity of the superstition that is carried on within their walls.
Thomas Lovell Beddoes
If he be so resolved, I can o’ersway him; for he loves to hear That unicorns may be betrayed with trees And bears with glasses, elephants with holes, Lions with toils, and men with flatterers
William Shakespeare
One boy made fun of me because one day, I had really curly hair, and I wear glasses normally, and I also bite my nails. I feel like everyone is different in their own way, so, people shouldn’t try to make them feel bad because of that.
Elle Fanning
It’s tough to stay married. My wife kisses the dog on the lips, yet she won’t drink from my glass.
Rodney Dangerfield
Once you have an augmented reality display, you don’t need any other form of display. Your smart phone does not need a screen. You don’t need a tablet. You don’t need a TV. You just take the screen with you on your glasses wherever you go.
Tim Sweeney
You think religion is what’s inside a little building filled with pretty lights from stained glass windows. But it’s not. It’s wings! Wings!
Dorothy Canfield Fisher
I do find the sight of small children eating very moving. Watch the way their tiny fingers clamp the cutlery. The exaggeratedly precise way they move cups or glasses to their lips.
John Niven
Not sure if I need a glass of wine or a gun or both.
Charles Macaulay
Kush rolled, glass full, I prefer the better things.
The line of traffic advancing towards the rising sun looked like a procession of the returning dead. Every one of them, solitaries in clean shirts, smoking, checking mirrors to see if their reflections were still there, wore dark glasses.
Iain Sinclair
I have to put my outfit on in the same order. It’s sort of a superstition. The last thing I put on is the glasses.
Jenny Ryan
The thing about the Mirror is that no one knows where it is. In fact, no one knows what it is.” “It’s a mirror,” Simon said. “You know – reflective, glass. I’m just assuming.
Cassandra Clare
I was small growing up, and to make matters worse, I wore glasses, and my mother dressed me in attention-getting outfits. I was a target of bullies.
Joel Grey
There’s times when the crockery seems alive, an’ flies out o’ your hand like a bird. It’s like the glass, sometimes, ‘ull crack as it stands. What is to be broke will be broke.
George Eliot
Murana is the name of the mask I have designed for Venini: a volume to wear for filtering the reality through the glass of its surfaces, a face without sexual or racial connotations able to represent every kind of humanity, a soul for an object that could be casually perceived as a vase.
Fabio Novembre
Deep-seated preferences cannot be argued about – you cannot argue a man into liking a glass of beer.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
…if you live feeling like Your glass is half empty, well, It may as well be empty all the way.
Mattie Stepanek
Running a start-up is like eating glass. You just start to like the taste of your own blood.
Sean Parker
If you make a fist and hold it for two hours, you won’t be able to pick up a glass because you’ll be so weak. Let’s stay loose. Let’s have fun.
Lou Holtz
It is like the man who became short-sighted and refused to wear glasses, saying there was nothing wrong with him, but that the trouble was that the recent papers were so badly printed.
Maurice Nicoll
My mind was once the true survey Of all these meadows fresh and gay; And in the greenness of the grass Did see its hopes as in a glass.
Andrew Marvell
Scan not a friend with a microscopic glass, you know his faults, now let the foibles pass.
George Harrison
What happens when kids don’t have glasses – they get bored in class. They disengage and they may be disruptive. They may be misdiagnosed for A.D.D. or put in special needs classes.
Neil Blumenthal
People are like stained – glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.

The true faith discovered was When painted panel, statuary, Glass-mosaic, window-glass, Amended what was told awry By some peasant gospeler.
William Butler Yeats
In grade school, I was a complete geek. You know, there’s always the kid who’s too short, the kid who wears glasses, the kid who’s not athletic. Well, I was all three.
Julianne Moore
During zazen, brain and consciousness become pure. It’s exactly like muddy water left to stand in a glass. Little by little, the sediment sinks to the bottom and the water becomes pure.
Taisen Deshimaru
I am out in public and using the phone. I am in a phone booth, got the phone in my hand and a man taps on the glass and says You using the phone? Nope, I’m superman, i am just looking for my costume. Here’s your sign!
Bill Engvall
[My aunt] took me to my first play, too, which was dinner theater. I don’t know if they have that in England, but you eat a dinner while you watch a play. And she ordered a glass of wine. I was like, “Oh my God. This is, like, the most sophisticated thing I have ever done.”
Geena Davis
The problem with heartbreak is that nobody can help you when you’re heartbroken. Nobody and nothing. Not the films you watch alone desperately searching for a character who feels the way you do, not the glasses or bottles of whisky you keep by your bed and certainly not Instagram.
Alexa Chung
My glass shall not persuade me I am old, So long as youth and thou are of one date; But when in thee time’s furrows I behold, Then look I death my days should expiate.
William Shakespeare
The more people I meet, the farther out of my own little world I go, the more I see that we are all alike. And there isn’t one of us who can afford to pick up the rock in the glass house.
Susan Powter
I am very short-sighted but I don’t wear my glasses as they give me a headache, so if everyone could just stand closer to me that would help.
Sara Pascoe
He is not half through yet, and to what he will come in the end not even Elrond can foretell. Not to evil, I think. He may become like a glass filled with a clear light for eyes to see that can.
J. R. R. Tolkien
For all things turn to barenness
In the dim glass the demons hold
The glass of outer weariness
Made when God slept in times of old
Loreena McKennitt
But it must not be forgotten that … glass and porcelain were manufactured, stuffs dyed and metals separated from their ores by mere empirical processes of art, and without the guidance of correct scientific principles.
Justus von Liebig
I had a bowl cut for years, and glasses. When Harry Potter became famous, I looked just like him.
Joe Jonas
Generation on generation, your neck rubbed the windowsill
of the stall, smoothing the wood as the sea smooths glass.
Donald Hall
She drank a glass of wine and looked for something new to ruin with her lack of talent.
Chuck Palahniuk
The man in the shop peered disapprovingly at Evie through the glass. She pumped her arms and legs up and down in imitation of a marching band, gave the man a salute, and continued her meandering walk to the museum.
Libba Bray
If God had meant for me to be religious, he would have alphabetized the books of the Bible. It was just too hard for me to find what I was looking for, especially if I was looking for it through a few glasses of scotch.
Cathie Pelletier
The world is a looking-glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. Frown at it, and it will in turn look sourly upon you; laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly kind companion; and so let all young persons take their choice.
William Makepeace Thackeray
NASA scientists announced the discovery of 50 new planets, among them what they’re calling Super Earth. It’s indistinguishable from regular earth until it removes its glasses.
Peter Sagal
I didn’t see painters doing paintings of glassware and glass shelves or sand dunes and receding snow fences. Why does that interest photographers and not artists?
John Baldessari
I use different kinds of materials on different kinds of projects. Today we can do things with steel and glass that we could not do before. flexible enough to change.
Gottfried Bohm
It’s better to have a small diamond than a large piece of glass.
Robert Genn
Dear optimist, pessimist, and realist–while you guys were busy arguing about the glass of wine, I drank it! Sincerely, the opportunist!
Lori Greiner
My first two albums, ‘Silverbird and ‘Just a Boy,’ which had the single ‘Long Tall Glasses’ on it, were very well received. Then I did another one, ‘Another Year,’ which did miserably.
Leo Sayer
When he takes me in his arms, and speaks to me softly, I see the world through rose-colored glasses.
Edith Piaf
Someone who does not see a pane of glass is not aware of not seeing it.
Simone Weil
I will say that I do gravitate more towards quirkier guys. I always date guys who wear glasses.
Jillian Rose Reed
There comes a time in every woman’s life when the only thing that helps is a glass of champagne.
Bette Davis
(As human beings) We see everything everything in a glass, darkly. Sometimes we can peer through the glass and catch a glimpse of what is on the other side. If we were to polish the glass clean, we’d see much more. But then we would no longer see ourselves.
Jostein Gaarder
Men kick friendship around like a football, but it doesn’t seem to crack. Women treat it like glass and it goes to pieces.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
I am the woman with the cool vintage glasses… I am the proud wife beside her husband… I am the writer who has written a new novel.
Ann Hood
What the English like to do is to face reality with a glass of port and a tear and fade off like Basil Rathbone into the sunset.
Pete Townshend
And since we’re all adults here, let’s be brutally honest-most babies are not actually attractive. In fact, they’re weird and freakish looking. A large percentage of them are squinty-eyed and bald and their faces are all mushed toegther, kind of like Renee Zellweger pushed up against a glass window.
Joan Rivers
When she slept, she looked peaceful, beautiful. Not Lena’s kind of beautiful, something different. She looked content – like a sunny day, a cold glass of milk, an unopened book before you cracked the binding.
Kami Garcia
I want to get a vending machine, with fun sized candy bars, and the glass in front is a magnifying glass. You’ll be mad, but it will be too late.
Mitch Hedberg
I never thought I was breaking a glass ceiling. I just had to do what I had to do, and it never occurred to me not to.
Marian Wright Edelman
I’m not glass-half-full, glass-half-empty; I’m like, “There’s a glass?”
Damon Lindelof
I can’t believe how much this place has grown,” Hazel muttered. The taxi driver grinned in the rearview mirror. “Been a long time since you visited, miss?” “About seventy years,” Hazel said. The driver slid the glass partition closed and drove on in silence.
Rick Riordan
If I had five minutes to live, I don’t think I’d be bothered singing a song. I’d be dead, so it won’t really matter. I’d have a glass of wine and a cigarette.
Loudon Wainwright III
I have always taken the view that one should never hold against a man anything he says after twelve o’clock at night or after a glass or two of anything.
Alexander McCall Smith
I love listening to audiobooks – I always lose my glasses, but if I have an audiobook, I don’t need them.
Michaela Coel
Satire is a sort of glass, wherein beholders do generally discover everybody’s face but their own.
Jonathan Swift
You from within our glasses, you lusty golden brew, whoever imbibes takes fire from you. The young and the old sing your praises. Here’s to beer, here’s to cheer, here’s to beer.
Bedrich Smetana
Shards of glass can cut and wound or magnify a vision.
Terry Tempest Williams
I don’t like being recognised. Shopping, I often wear glasses and a scarf.
Prunella Scales
Albania in 1994 was the strangest place I’ve ever seen. It was like walking into the looking glass: falling apart, paranoid people, anarchy, no one farming, full of thieves. It was beyond any Third World country. They were living in their own private nightmare.
Paul Theroux
Being a shy child, I always longed for a mask. Even in my adult life, I have glasses, they are my mask.
Edwidge Danticat
I have this firm belief that I am who I am for a reason. If I change something, I’m cheating myself of whatever it is I’m supposed to learn from my body. You know, I’m legally blind. I’m 20/750, since I was in fifth grade. I wear glasses and contacts. But I won’t even get LASIK.
Carrie Ann Inaba
We’ve got rings, glasses, we wear things for armor, for protection from the elements, to signal our status to other people. And we’re going to co-opt a lot of those things, where wearables are going to end up being the interface between us in the world.
Astro Teller
It has never occurred to me before, but this is truly how it is: all of us on earth walk constantly over a seething, scarlet sea of flame, hidden below, in the belly of the earth. We never think of it. But what if the thin crust under our feet should turn into glass and we should suddenly see?
Yevgeny Zamyatin
With a touch of sarcasm. “Glass is an amazing material. Versatile.
Maria V. Snyder
I like to have glasses for day and night.
Brad Goreski
Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.
Anton Chekhov
I have always striven to fix beauty in wood, stone, glass or pottery, in oil or watercolor by using whatever seemed fittest for the expression of beauty, that has been my creed.
Louis Comfort Tiffany
How many people have a family grave in the backyard? I’m sure I’ll end up there, or I’ll shrink my head and put it in a glass box in the living room. I’ll get more tourists to Graceland that way.
Lisa Marie Presley
Men are seldom underrated; the mercury in a man finds its true level in the eyes of the world just as certainly as it does in the glass of a thermometer.
Josh Billings
And by the way, I would not only reappoint Greenspan; if Greenspan would happen to die, God forbid, I would do like they did in the movie ‘Weekend at Bernie’s.’ I would prop him up and put a pair of dark glasses on him.
John McCain
-there was something in her, something that was…pure horror. Everything you were supposed to watch out for. Heights, fire, shards of glass, snakes, Everything that his mom tried so hard to keep him safe from.
John Ajvide Lindqvist
The sluices of the grog-shop are fed from the wine-glasses in the parlor, and there is a lineal descent from the gentleman who hiccoughs at his elegant dinner-table to the sot who makes a bed of the gutter.
Edwin Hubbel Chapin
I love to mix things up and create new dishes in the kitchen. I love cooking shrimp scampi and having a glass of Pinot Grigio while listening to music.
Zulay Henao
Religion is a bell jar; you cannot find God in that jar, because it is your bell jar, you have created it! Break the glass prison and get fresh air, elevate your intelligence! Wake up and open your eyes; see the truth beyond your prison! If you can’t break the glass, don’t worry; science will do it for you!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Shaun get your sister her glasses. She looks naked without them. It’s creeping me out.
Mira Grant
Every time you drink a glass of milk or eat a piece of cheese, you harm a mother. Please go vegan.
Gary L. Francione
Something about the topic of consciousness makes people, like the White Queen in Through The Looking Glass, believe six impossible things before breakfast.
Steven Pinker
Time was away and somewhere else,
There were two glasses and two chairs
And two people with one pulse.
Louis MacNeice
What wonders does not wine! It discloses secrets; ratifies and confirms our hopes; thrusts the coward forth to battle; eases the anxious mind of its burden; instructs in arts. Whom has not a cheerful glass made eloquent! Whom not quite free and easy from pinching poverty!
I find that it’s easier to disguise yourself when you go to Florida or places like that, because no one is expecting to see a celebrity there. When you throw on a hat and glasses, no one really looks at you twice – because why would you be in Florida? People just assume that if you’re famous, you’re in Hollywood.
Megan Fox
The Magicians brilliantly explores the hidden underbelly of fantasy and easy magic, taking what’s simple on the surface and turning it over to show us the complicated writhing mess beneath. It’s like seeing the worlds of Narnia and Harry Potter through a 3-D magnifying glass.
Naomi Novik
Part of me is made of glass, and also, I love you.
Nicole Krauss
Todd Glass has amazing energy on stage. Dave Attell is one of my favorites because he’s a one liner comic who is always incredibly in the moment with the audience. As for newer people, I think Adrienne Iapalucci writes some great, dark jokes and Sean Patton has a hilarious voice on stage.
Anthony Jeselnik
It’s just an ice bucket with a bottle in it. The two flute glasses are little tray. I got to shut the curtains. I’m in my boxer shorts and shirt. I’m going to take a bath and go to bed. But I want to shut the blinds so it’s really dark in the room.
Danny DeVito
When I was a little kid, all I wanted to do was to escape what I thought was the country and get to a city. Probably film and television had influenced me so much, I really thought the key to happiness was living a very artificial life in a penthouse in New York with martini glasses.
Tom Ford
You’ll be my glass of wine
I’ll be your shot of whiskey
Blake Shelton
It doesn’t matter if the glass is half empty or half full. Be grateful you have a glass – your the only person that can decide what’s in it.
Gurbaksh Chahal
Nothing makes the future look so rosy as to contemplate it through a glass of Chambertin.
Napoleon Bonaparte
Not until all babies are born from glass jars will the combat cease between mother and son.
Camille Paglia
As a breath on glass, – As witch-fires that burn, The gods and monsters pass, Are dust, and return. (“The Face of the Skies”)
George Sterling
I do not want [photography] explained to me in terms of… formulas, learned, but so hopelessly unsatisfying. I do not want my butterfly stuck on a pin and put in a glass case. I want to see the sunlight on its wings as it flits from flower to flower and I don’t care a rap what its Latin name may be.
Jacob August Riis
A ship’s engine far away on the water expands the summer-night horizon. Both joy and sorrow swell in the dew’s magnifying glass. Without really knowing, we divine; our life has a sister ship, following quietly another route. While the sun blazes behind the islands.
Tomas Transtromer
I intend, before the endgame looms, to die sitting in a chair in my own garden with a glass of brandy in my hand and Thomas Tallis on the iPod. Oh, and since this is England, I had better add, “If wet, in the library.” Who could say that this is bad?
Terry Pratchett
I want to be both pathetic and admirable, I want to be at the same time a child and an adult. Thereby I gamble, I take a risk: for it is always possible that the other will simply ask no question whatever about these unaccustomed glasses; that the other will see, in the fact, no sign.
Roland Barthes
They’re safe,” he said. “And you’re not made of glass”. He swept me up in his arms. I laughed. “And I’m not made of glass.” He carried me into our room and kicked the door shut behind us.
Sherwood Smith
Here I am and there is my body dancing on glass.
Sarah Kane
because wherever I sat—on the deck of a ship or at a street café in Paris or Bangkok—I would be sitting under the same glass bell jar, stewing in my own sour air.
Sylvia Plath
The whole world is drunk and we’re just the cocktail of the moment. Someday soon, the world will wake up, down two aspirin with a glass of tomato juice, and wonder what the hell all the fuss was about.
Dean Martin
The woman let out an expansive laugh that resounded through the house like a spray of broken glass.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
I planted my self in the middle of a great many Glasses full of Dew, tied fast about me, upon which the Sun so violently darted his Rays, that the Heat, which attracted them, as it does the thickest Clouds, carried me up so high, that at length I found my self above the middle Region of the Air.
Cyrano de Bergerac
Maybe I’m an open book, or maybe love is like a magnifying glass straight into the souls of those who own your heart.
Mia Sheridan
I’d like a glass of cold gravy with a hair in it, please.
Davy Jones
The crazy thing is I got all of these shoes, and probably 80 percent of them I’ve never worn before. I’ve worn all the glasses. I sleep in them, bend them up a little bit. Glasses are on all the time except when I’m at practice or at work.
Von Miller
But stories that live longest
Are sung above the glass,
And Parnell loved his country
And Parnell loved his lass.
William Butler Yeats
Hackers are nerdy, pasty, tubby, little geeks with triple thick glasses and this is probably a demented otaku with smelly feet. So catching him will be a breeze!
Keiko Nobumoto
Death has shaken out the sands of thy glass.
John Gardiner Calkins Brainard
Newton found that a star, examined through a glass tarnished by smoke, was diminished into a speck of light. But no smoke ever breathed so thick a mist as envy or detraction.
Robert Aris Willmott
After we put my son to bed, my husband and I curl up and watch a movie or TV. That’s when I finally put up my feet and have my glass of wine and a brownie.
Kara Goucher
Like every big organisation these days, the BBC is obsessed with the wellbeing of those who set foot on its premises. Studios must display warning notices if there is real glass on the set, and the other day I was presented with a booklet explaining how to use a door. I am not kidding.
Jeremy Clarkson
I’m getting to the end of my magnifying glasses now. One eye’s gone completely. The other is gradually dimming. Dimming – that sounds very dramatic, doesn’t it? I’m so lucky. I can still make a living – and the same kind of living.
Sue Townsend
If you watch Olivier’s interviews, he has this reptilian tongue; it seems too big for his mouth. My pursuit of that became distracting, so I let it go. The thrill was finding the right pair of glasses.
Julian Sands
Even though I wear glasses, I’m not just a mousy person who stays in my room – even though I do sometimes stay in my room and read.
Marley Dias
To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be. Design is how you treat your customers. If you treat them well from an environmental, emotional, and aesthetic standpoint, you’re probably doing good design.
Yves Behar
I should like to elbow aside the established pieties and raise my martini glass in salute to the mortal arts of pleasure.
Bob Shacochis
It’s a nice glass of champagne at the end of a life.
Kurt Vonnegut
I like newspapers. Maybe the iPad is very modern and everything, and I’m not against it, but I like the physical contact. And the physical contact of metal and glass is not as sensuous as paper.
Karl Lagerfeld
Exploring emerging technologies like new refraction technology will enable people to get prescriptions cheaper and more conveniently, which will, in turn, provide increased access to prescription glasses.
Neil Blumenthal
Remember: People who live in glass houses can see you masturbating in their bushes.
Dan Johnson
If you’re on the right side of the issue, just keep driving until you hear glass breaking. Don’t quit.
T. Boone Pickens
The theater remains relevant because of 3D. It makes it an event. You go there, 400 people put on their glasses, and it’s just fun.
Evan Goldberg
Shane lowered his glasses on his nose and gave me his version of a severe stare. I leaned a little toward Luther. “Is this the part where I faint in fear?” Luther bit his lip. “He might also accept falling to your knees and holding your hands in humble supplication. Makes it easier for him to slap the cuffs on.
Ilona Andrews
Fool indeed is he, who, living on the banks of the Ganga, digs a little well for water. Fool indeed is the man who, coming to a mine of diamonds, begins to search for glass beads.
Swami Vivekananda
but their eyes were as cold blue glass buttons.
Ayn Rand
I see wrinkles and lines, and wear glasses to read, which I hate. But I am in a better place in my body than I used to be.
Bonnie Langford
Paradigms are like glasses. When you have incomplete paradigms about yourself or life in general, it’s like wearing glasses with the wrong prescription. That lens affects how you see everything else.
Sean Covey
Anyone with an ailment or who wears glasses or anyone slightly different suddenly wears a bull’s eye. I think that dodgeball derailed an entire generation of Americans. It’s the true red menace.
Arthur Jones
The early Billy Joel stuff I fell in love with, like Glass Houses, is a real rock record.
Gavin DeGraw
Unknowingly, we plow the dust of stars,
blown about us by the wind, and drink the
universe in a glass of rain.
Ihab Hassan
I have read of a glass kept in an idol temple in Smyrna that would make beautiful things appear deformed, and deformed things appear beautiful; carnal sense is such a glass to wicked men, it makes heavenly things which are beautiful to appear deformed, and earthly things which are deformed to appear beautiful.
Ralph Venning
I am trapped in glass and I want to break out and breath deep but IВґm too afraid that it will hurt.
Ally Condie

The motion picture made in Hollywood, if it is to create art at all, must do so within such strangling limitations of subject and treatment that it is a blind wonder it ever achieves any distinction beyond the purely mechanical slickness of a glass and chromium bathroom.
Raymond Chandler
At my lemonade stand I used to give the first glass away free and charge five dollars for the second glass. The refill contained the antidote.
Emo Philips
Method acting? There are quite a few methods. Mine involves a lot of talent, a glass, and some cracked ice.
John Barrymore
Any idiot can build bombs. Our Trinity sits not on some desert sand seared into glass at an abandoned, sad pillar of stones. It’s in our heads and our hearts, it’s in our genes, this beautiful, gorgeous marriage of money, freedom and ingenuity.
Bill Whittle
I want [my daughter] to look at the world through the underside of a glass-bottom boat, to look through a microscope at the galaxies that exist on the pinpoint of a human mind.
Sarah Kay
European languages must not be considered diamonds displayed under a glass ball, dazzling us with their brilliance.
Cheikh Anta Diop
Whatever it is, it feels like it’s laughing at me Through the glass of a two-sided mirror.
The humble person receives praise the way a clean window takes the light of the sun. The truer and more intense the light is, the less you see of the glass.
Thomas Merton
I have had to come to terms with wearing glasses.
Lucinda Williams
Philip Glass once told me, “They can always copy what you’ve done, but they can’t copy what you’re going to do.”
Errol Morris
Vanity, fear, desire, competition – all such distortions within our own egos – condition our vision of those in relation to us. Add to those distortions to our own egos the corresponding distortions in the egos of others, and you see how cloudy the glass must become through which we look at each other.
Tennessee Williams
Methinks you are my glass, and not my brother: I see by you I am a sweet-faced youth.
William Shakespeare
We can now with Google Glasses record everything around us, and we can make sure that nothing is ever forgotten because everything is stored somewhere in Google servers or somewhere else.
Evgeny Morozov
The trouble with jogging is that the ice falls out of your glass.
Martin Mull
It’s a sad day when Myrnin is the safe choice, she thought. Apparently, he thought so, too, because he gave her a long, troubled look before pressing his thumb to a glass plate inside the room and opening the door.
Rachel Caine
Even the intellectual crowd will have none of me. Physically, I look like one of them. Graying at the temples, I walk with a slight limp and wear thick glasses.
Groucho Marx
Evie was so nervous that she downed her cocktail in two stiff swigs, then refilled her glass. Henry arched an eyebrow. “A pro, I see.” “What else is there to do in Ohio?
Libba Bray
It is not vain glory for a man and his glass to confer in his own chamber.
William Shakespeare
Language most shows a man; speak that I may see thee; it springs out of the most retired and inmost parts of us, and is the image of the parent of it, the mind. No glass renders a man’s form or likeness so true as his speech.
Ben Jonson
I don’t jog. It makes the ice jump right out of my glass.
Martin Mull
Then here’s to the heartening wassail, Wherever good fellows are found; Be its master instead of its vassal, and order the glasses around.
Ogden Nash
I have always maintained that there is nothing wrong with nursery food now that we are grown up and can have a glass of wine with it.
Elizabeth Ray
In many areas of understanding, none so much as in our understanding of God, we bump up against a simplicity so profound that we must assign complexities to it to comprehend it at all. It is mindful of how we paste decals to a sliding glass door to keep from bumping our nose against it.
Robert Breault
Do you have to make me feel like there’s nothing left of me? You can take everything I have, you can break everything I am, like I am made of glass, like I am made of paper.Go on and try to tear me down I will be rising from the ground like a Skyscraper.
Demi Lovato
He crouched at the car window and looked in. ‘What a lovely family you have. What a charming family. They’re all lovely. Except for that one.’ His finger jabbed the glass. ‘That one’s a bit ugly.
Derek Landy
Cultures that may seem as durable as stone can break like glass, leaving all the things that held them together unattended. I believe that the craftsman, the artist, the cook, and the silversmith are peacemakers. They instill grace; they lull the world to calm.
Anthony Shadid
I was very introverted. I had glasses and was kind of weird. A lot of actors are pretty weird people.
Jennifer Sky
If your heart were sincere and upright, every creature would be unto you a looking-glass of life and a book of holy doctrine.
Thomas a Kempis
According to DC’s HIV/AIDS office, three percent of the local population has HIV or AIDS… The DC City Council, perhaps on the theory that serving up another glass of wine is the way to help a drunk, is scheduled to vote on December 1 to legalize same sex marriage in America’s capital city.
Star Parker
I want to be able to depict in music a glass of beer so accurately that every listener can tell whether it is a Pilsner or a Kulmbacher.
Richard Strauss
All I liked to do when I was a kid was draw. My childhood was like my adult life: drawing pictures with my brother, putting the comics up on the glass window, and tracing the characters onto tracing paper or drawing paper and then coloring them. That and making things was all we ever did.
Maurice Sendak
Glasses are for the brave. I do not need to pretend that I am sighted. People who need glasses and don’t wear them are slightly less treacherous than people who don’t need them and do-like every shallow Hollywood star who wants to be taken seriously.
Greg Proops
You cannot have a healthy body without drinking a great deal of water. But remember, you can’t just drink a glass of water and tell a glass of water to please go straight to your skin and moisturize your complexion. Water has to be there all the time, doing what it does naturally in a healthy body.
Diane von Furstenberg
He was the one she was doing all this for, but sometimes she missed him so much it felt like she swallowed broken glass.
Cassandra Clare
All of us little bald white guys wearing glasses kind of look the same.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
George Bernard Shaw
People take toasting way too seriously – especially the clinking glasses part. There are always a few people who are seated too far away from each other to easily clink.
Matt Besser
[I am more than happy to invite my five favorite fictional characters.]Roland Deschain from Stephen King’s Dark Tower series. There’s a whole world about Roland left to know. I’ve got questions. He’d have answers. So pour him a glass of wine.
Megan Chance
Here ‘s to the maiden of bashful fifteen; Here ‘s to the widow of fifty; Here ‘s to the flaunting, extravagant queen, And here ‘s to the housewife that ‘s thrifty! Let the toast pass; Drink to the lass; I ‘ll warrant she ‘ll prove an excuse for the glass.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
I’m afraid my glass is no longer half full because I drank most of it.
Lawrence Fagg
I bought me a spy-glass some weeks since. I buy but a few things, and those not till long after I begin to want them, so that when I do get them I am prepared to make a perfect use of them and extract their whole sweet.
Henry David Thoreau
The French are a smallish, monkey-looking bunch and not dressed any better, on average, than the citizens of Baltimore. True, you can sit outside in Paris and drink little cups of coffee, but why this is more stylish than sitting inside and drinking large glasses of whiskey I don’t know.
P. J. O’Rourke
Don’t bother. The glass is half-empty.
Norman Vincent Peale
Negativland through rose colored glasses. If ‘mice are from Mars,’ Greek Buck is from Venus.
Terre Thaemlitz
I always think, after the second glass of wine, you should be putting something in your stomach.
Padma Lakshmi
Life, like a dome of many-coloured glass,
Stains the white radiance of eternity.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Unlike water or wine or even Coca-Cola, sweet tea means something. It is a tell, a tradition. Sweet tea isn’t a drink, really. It’s culture in a glass.
Allison Glock
I think [Winnie the Pooh] just looks at the world through honey-colored glasses, and everything is honey-fied and sweet for him, and that’s not a bad outlook.
Jim Cummings
Most men, it seems to me, do not care for Nature and would sell their share in all her beauty, as long as they may live, for a stated sum – many for a glass of rum. Thank God, men cannot as yet fly, and lay waste the sky as well as the earth!
Henry David Thoreau
I believe in the rest of the story. I believe there’s still ink in the pen…. and someday all that’s hazy through a clouded glass will be clear at last.
Nichole Nordeman
I also taught myself how to blow glass using a propane torch from the hardware store and managed to make some elementary chemistry plumbing such as tees and small glass bulbs.
Robert B. Laughlin
I’m supposed to figure out if the glass is half full or half empty,” I told her. Without a moment’s hesitation, in a split second, my grandmother shrugged and said: “It depends on if you’re drinking or pouring.
Bill Cosby
Be always decent and right in your home town; and when you’re on the road, never take more than four glasses of beer a day or play higher than a twenty-five-cent limit.
O. Henry
I think that stereoscopic 3D will have to continue to develop. It’s still quite archaic because of the glasses you have to wear.
Michel Ocelot
I wish that restaurateurs would choose simpler and smaller glassware. The tables on restaurants these days are way too crowded, and mostly because the plates are too odd looking and big, and the wine glasses are so gigantic that it takes up the whole surface area and you can’t move. I prefer smaller glassware.
Geoffrey Zakarian
Sunshine of late afternoon–
On the glass tray
a glass pitcher, the tumbler
turned down, by which
a key is lying–And the
immaculate white bed
William Carlos Williams
Judge Doom is such an evil cartoon! It was just such fun to do. I liked the whole mystique of it: the long cape, the glasses, and all that stuff. You grow up with horror films as a kid, and it all seemed to be embodied in that one guy.
Christopher Lloyd
I think in the last thirty years, the rich have gotten richer and the poor have gotten poorer. It is not something that you can see with rose-colored glasses.
Mira Nair
…and the red sun of desire and decision (the two things that create a live world) rose higher and higher, while upon a succession of balconies a succession of libertines, sparkling glass in hand, toasted the bliss of past and future nights.
Vladimir Nabokov
I am the passenger, I stay under glass. I look through my window so bright, I see the stars come out tonight. I see the bright and hollow sky, over the city’s ripped backsides and everything looks good tonight.
Iggy Pop
When I was working at MTV, people would e-mail me asking where I bought my frames, and I always felt a little uneasy telling a teenager to go out and pick up a $400 pair of glasses.
Dan Levy
I’m not a wine connoisseur, but I do like a glass or two at night.
Diane Keaton
Astronomy is a cold, desert science, with all its pompous figures,-depends a little too much on the glass-grinder, too little on the mind. ‘T is of no use to show us more planets and systems. We know already what matter is, and more or less of it does not signify.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian. We feel better about ourselves and better about the animals, knowing we’re not contributing to their pain.
Linda McCartney
You know, he told me once, completely exasperated, you’ve got one glass of water inside your head, with all the tears for a lifetime. If you waste them over nothing, then you won’t be able to cry for real when you need to.
Jodi Picoult
In Russia, as I sat there day after day wearing headphones, listening to the interpreter struggle to make our words relevant, I wondered if we could establish meaningful rapport with a nation that had never seen raisins dance in dark glasses on TV…never had a garage sale.
Erma Bombeck
I spilled more times than a glass of milk on a roller coaster.
Scott Westerfeld
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
Often I’d take out my magnifying glass and stare into the chaos that was her face.
David Sedaris
Many women have been successful at breaking the glass ceiling only to find a layer of men.
Jane Harman
Last but not least, she put on a pair of black-framed reading glasses she’d found on Mr. Mercer’s bedside table. If it worked for Clark Kent, it’d work for her.
Sara Shepard
I love girls, whether they wear glasses or not!
Akira Toriyama
Purification is but the cleaning of the lamp-glass which hides the Light
Annie Besant
I don’t know how to have a normal relationship because I try to act normal and love from a normal place and live a normal life, but there is sort of an abnormal magnifying glass, like telescope lens, on everything that happens.
Taylor Swift
I could not conjure up one melancholy fancy upon a mutton chop and a glass of champagne.
Jerome K. Jerome
If you handed [character] a glass that was 90% full, he’d tell you that the 10% empty part proved that no one really cared about water.
Eliezer Yudkowsky
The only advantage to wearing glasses is that you can do that dramatic removal.
Jim Gaffigan
It’s harder to make the glass than break the glass.
Every time you have a glass of cow milk, some calf is not.
Gary Yourofsky
A man may surely be allowed to take a glass of wine by his own fireside.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
I’ve earned every wrinkle on my face. I actually like my wrinkles. And guess what? There are a lot of 60-year-old men who have wrinkles, no hair, glasses, and nobody gives a damn.
Doris Burke
That’s how the Germans are…. The aristocrats at the top hard as glass, cold as ice, servants of the King, the working masses willing, pliable, sentimental, susceptible to brutality, the middle class educated and cowardly to the point of servility.
Alfred Doblin
Sometimes I take off my skully and wear glasses, so I’ve gotta brush and make sure my hairline is straight.
French Montana
I grew up hearing, ‘You’re pretty for a black girl,’ ‘You speak well for a black girl…’ I was really bookish. I was reading all of the time. I had big glasses.
Jessica Williams
All babies look like RenГ©e Zellweger pushed against a glass window.
Joan Rivers
When things get really bad, just raise your glass and stamp your feet and do a little jig. That’s about all you can do.
Leonard Cohen
When it’s the funeral scene of ‘My Girl,’ and Thomas is in the casket, and the young lady is screaming that he can’t see without his glasses, you can absolutely, absolutely cry. Perfectly big, crazy tears all over your shirt, into the arms of others.
Charlamagne tha God
Your right. We do spend a lot of time worrying about our looks, instead of focusing on what’s inside. – Raven The artist has the power to capture that. To express what he thinks about the subject. I thought that was much more romantic then seeing myself in a cold, stark glass reflection. – Alexander
Ellen Schreiber
When I put the plate down, you don’t hear a sound. When I pick up a glass, I want it to be just right. When someone says, “How come you’re just a waitress?” I say, “Don’t you think you deserve being served by me?”
Studs Terkel
I have a carbohydrate and protein-rich diet. For breakfast, I typically have two slices of bread with butter or jam, four to five eggs – boiled or fried – a few bananas and a glass of milk.
Vijender Singh
I’m so tired of this vision of fashion of a diva with a big ego, and you think of big dark glasses to be pretentious and keep far away from the people.
Carine Roitfeld
But be careful; sand is already broken but glass breaks. The shoes are for dancing, not running away.
Francesca Lia Block
I drink this [whiskey glass] and I’m just another JBL? you don’t get it, I’m not like you. I’m not JBL, I’m CM Punk! Sometimes it’s what you don’t do that makes you who you are.
CM Punk
Culture is a little like dropping an Alka- Seltzer into a glass- you don’t see it, but somehow it does something
Hans Magnus Enzensberger
Rather than thinking of ourselves as a computer, and trying to give you computer-like functionality, it’s better to start from the understanding that this is a pair of glasses, and say, ‘How smart can we make these glasses for you?’
Astro Teller
You see, baby, after a glass or two of wine I’m inclined to extravagance.
Tennessee Williams
I was the kind of reader in smudged pink harlequin glasses sitting on the cool, dusty floor of the Arrandale public library, standing at the edge of the playground, having broken a tooth in dodge ball, and lying under my covers with a flashlight.
Amy Bloom
Human understanding is fallible, and we see through a glass, darkly. Any religion is a shadow of God. But the shadows of God are not God.
Margaret Atwood
A wine shop was open and I went in for some coffee. It smelled of early morning, of swept dust, spoons in coffee-glasses and the wet circles left by wine glasses.
Ernest Hemingway
I wouldn’t be a very good hunter without these glasses. I’m not a very good hunter with these glasses, but I’d be even worse without them, so that would put a crimp in how many kids I could have, so all of these medical advances have at least in some parts of the world blunted natural selection.
Carl Zimmer
I see the glass half full…but of poison.
Woody Allen
Entrepreneurship is like eating glass and walking on hot coals at the same time
Elon Musk
Eternity is the divine treasure-house, and hope is the window, by means of which mortals are permitted to see, as through a glass darkly, the things which God is preparing.
William Mountford
I love to go to the airports and just put on, like, dark glasses, so nobody can tell I’m staring at them, and just draw people.
Pete Docter
I believe that the concept of ‘design’ encompasses every aspect of customers’s exposure to a brand, from the moment they hear about us to the first time they visit our store to the process of ordering and anticipating the arrival of their glasses.
Neil Blumenthal
Days off are few and far between in the restaurant business. But on an hour off, I like to have a glass of wine with my wife.
Geoffrey Zakarian
I am a positive person. I never think of the glass as half empty. I just keep pushing forward.
Rosie Perez
I like writing books. I’d rather be at home with my wife. I can write, take a break, come out, have a glass of tea, give my wife a kiss, and go back in and write some more. It’s not so bad. I am really lucky.
Gene Wilder
I should have liked to have had him beside me in a glass coffin, so that I could watch him all the time and he would not have been able to get away from me.
Angela Carter
A WRINKLE IN TIME is one of my favorite books of all time. I’ve read it so often, I know it by heart. Meg Murry was my hero growing up. I wanted glasses and braces and my parents to stick me in an attic bedroom. And I so wanted to save Charles Wallace from IT.
Meg Cabot
The Life and Soul, the man who will never go home while there is one man, woman or glass of anything not yet drunk.
Katharine Whitehorn
I hurl the glass teapot to the ground. we both stare at it, stunned. “it was supposed to break,” I explain after a pause, ” and that was going to signify that yes, I would throw something away . If I knew it wasn’t right for me.
Sophie Kinsella
I choose to look at people through God, using God as my glasses, colored with His love for them.
Frank Laubach
I go in for the eye test, and I don’t know about you, but I concentrate like crazy during the eye exam. You don’t want to get no ‘D’ on that thing and end up with these big thick Coke bottle glasses.
Brian Regan
I worked with Jack Nitzsche for ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,’ and we’d booked a symphony orchestra. He dismissed them and came with a little man who poured water into glasses of different sizes to make a glass harmonica. And most of the music for the film was that – with some Indian flutes and some drums.
Milos Forman
Imagine a delicious glass of summer iced tea. Take a long cool sip. Listen to the ice crackle and clink. Is the glass part full or part empty? Take another sip. And now?
Vera Nazarian
Many people are deficient in vitamin D. A glass of milk, for example, has only 100 IU. Other foods, such as orange juice, yogurt and cheese, are now beginning to be fortified, but you have to work fairly hard to reach 1,000 IU a day.
Frank C. Garland
…the past: It drifts, it gathers. If you are not careful, it will bury you. This is half the reason for the cure: It clean-sweeps; it makes the past, and all its pain, distant, like the barest impression on sparkling glass.
Lauren Oliver
In a lot of teen movies nowadays, you just get the rote six stereotypes like the jock, the cool guy, the nerd, the hot girl, the girl who cares, and the girl who has glasses and is supposed to be ugly but is actually beautiful.
Penn Dayton Badgley
Then I break a glass and I slit my very innermost thigh so that I can pretend that I’m menstru— well, unavailable.
Emilie Autumn
The rock is gonna fall on us,” he stood and told the class The professor put his chalk down and peered out through his glasses But he went on and said; “I’ve seen it, high up on the hill If it doesn’t fall this year then very soon it will!
Harry Chapin
One must be businesslike, although the glass is falling.
Vita Sackville-West
Ceremony keeps up things: ’tis like a penny glass to a rich spirit, or some excellent water; without it the water were spilt, and the spirit lost.
John Selden
The mind of a general ought to resemble and be as clear as the field-glass of a telescope.
Napoleon Bonaparte
He left the drapes open, watched the lights of the cars and of the fast food joints through the window glass, comforted to know there was another world out there, one he could walk to anytime he wanted.
Neil Gaiman
It is difficult to write about any form of mental disease, especially your own, without sounding as if you were examining a bug under glass.
Gene Tierney
You can analyze a glass of water and you’re left with a lot of chemical components, but nothing you can drink.
John B. S. Haldane
Being an entrepreneur is like eating glass and staring into the abyss of death.
Elon Musk
Harris, I am not well; pray get me a glass of brandy.
George IV of the United Kingdom
I don’t wear glasses, so I like the idea of not having to put them on to watch a movie. It’s a hard barrier to get beyond.
Joseph Kosinski
They have a sign at the beach, “no glass bottles”. I think that’s so the other sand particles don’t feel like underachievers.
Emo Philips
I don’t believe in pets. I like animals to be wild and free. But I can sit and watch an ant run up and down the floor for hours. I use a magnifying glass to look at the beautiful shape of the thing.
John Lydon
As a chamber hung round about with looking-glasses represents the face upon every turn, thus all the world doth the mercy and the bounty of God; though that be visible, yet it discovers an invisible God and his invisible properties.
Anthony Burgess
I never drink while I’m working, but after a few glasses I get ideas that would never have occurred to me dead sober.
Irwin Shaw
I don’t mind growing old. If I have to go before my time, this is how I’ll go– cigarette in one hand, glass of scotch in the other.
Ava Gardner
I don’t look my best when I wake up! But I do feel beautiful when I’m tired and happy and I’ve had a good laugh and a glass of champagne.
Maya Rudolph
I would read Playboy more often, but my glasses keep steaming up.
George Burns
I’m like a little Pollyanna. I look at the world with rose-colored glasses.
Sutton Foster
I love ‘Shattered Glass.’ It’s one of my favorite movies. I think it’s just brilliant.
Steve Zahn
Let her alone,’ said the enkanto, ‘or I will curse you blind, lame, and worse.’ The old man laughed. ‘I’m a curse breaker, fool.’ The elf grabbed one of the Jim Beam bottles from the table and slammed it down, so that he was holding a jagged glass neck. The elf smiled a very thin smile. ‘Then I won’t bother with magic.
Holly Black
Other brands I like besides Versace… Tom Ford makes incredible suits. I love the glasses as well. I have a plethora of Tom Ford shades. Who else do I like? Dolce & Gabbana, Dior Homme.
Trey Songz
Time, like a preacher in the days of the Puritans, turned the hour-glass on his high pulpit, the church belfry.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I had that trapped feeling, like some sort of a poor insect that you’ve put inside a downturned glass, and it tries to climb up the sides, and it can’t, and it can’t, and it can’t.
Cornell Woolrich
Staring at the world through the bottom of a glass, all I see is a man who’s fading fast.
Merle Haggard
On Saturday mornings I would walk to the Flavor Cup or Puerto Rico Importing coffee store to get my coffee. Often it was freshly roasted and the beans were still warm. Coffee was my nectar and my ambrosia: I was very careful about it. I decanted my beans into glass…and I ground them in little batches in my grinder.
Laurie Colwin
Alcohol is certainly one of the most abused drugs since ever and ever, since Dionysus. They say have a glass of wine at dinner, which was done in the Latin countries. In Italy we always had a glass of wine at dinner. It is a good thing. But if you have dozens of glasses of wine at dinner it is not so good.
Laura Huxley
The voice of God does not pander, offers no five-year plan, no long-term
solution, nary an edict. It is small & fond & local. Don’t look for your initials in the geese
honking overhead or to see thru the glass even darkly. It says the most obvious crap – put down that gun, you need a sandwich.
Mary Karr
Who indeed, after pulling off the coloured glasses of prejudice and thrusting out of sight his pet projects, can help seeing the folly of these endeavours to protect men against themselves? A sad population of imbeciles would our schemers fill the world with, could their plans last.
Herbert Spencer
I don’t like the word transparency; cold dead glass is transparent. I prefer education or understanding, which are more human.
Julian Assange
Cillian Murphy is the guy who battled viral zombies in ’28 Days Later’ and put a gas-spewing bag over his head in ‘Batman Begins’. With his pallor, cut-glass cheekbones and glazed blue eyes, he’s right on the border between dreamboat and spooky freak.
David Edelstein
Our house is made of glass… and our lives are made of glass; and there is nothing we can do to protect ourselves.
Joyce Carol Oates
I project myself out through the glasses and across the street, a ghost in the morning sunlight, torn with disembodied lust.
William S. Burroughs
I sometimes have the sense that I live my life as a writer with my nose pressed against the wide, shiny plate glass window of the”mainstream” culture. The world seems full of straight, large-circulation, slick periodicals which wouldn’t think of reviewing my book and bookstores which will never order it.
Jan Clausen
Superman looks exactly the same when he puts his glasses on and combs his hair… And everyone acts like it’s someone else. I don’t buy it. Batman has a proper disguise.
Scarlett Moffatt
Hey bartender, hey man, look here. Give us one more, two more, three more glasses of beer.
Koko Taylor
This is wine,” Ghoolion said solemnly. “Wine is drinkable sunlight. It’s the most glorious summer’s day imaginable, captured in a bottle. Wine can be a melody in a cut-glass goblet, but it can also be a cacophony in a dirty tumbler, or a rainy autumn night, or a funeral march that scorches your tongue.
Walter Moers
I don’t like putting glasses on and watching 3D. I don’t mind wearing glasses, but it’s the dimness of the light and the fact that you’re filtering the light. Whatever 3D process is being used is a filtration of light, which means it’s blocking some of the light.
Peter Jackson
Most people don’t wear glasses in the U.S., and we’re not conditioned to finding men and women who wear glasses sexy. If you need your glasses to see, find a good optometrist who can outfit you with a great frame, thin lenses, and a high-quality anti-reflective coating.
Amy Webb
I`ve never seen an orange with the label Castle on it made of glass.
George Gregan
When I was studying interior architecture, and playing around with glass because I really liked glass. There was one night when I blew a bubble and put a pipe into this glass I had melted and blew a bubble. From that moment, I wanted to be a glassblower.
Dale Chihuly
Wedlock’s like wine – not properly judged of till the second glass.
Ernest Jarrold
