The Dance can, with the aid of music, rise to the heights of poetry. On the other hand, through an excess of gymnastics it can also degenerate into buffoonery. So-called “difficult” feats can be executed by countless adepts, but the appearance of ease is achieved only by the chosen few.
August Bournonville

Ishmael Reed
Science can never be a closed book. It is like a tree, ever growing, ever reaching new heights. Occasionally the lower branches, no longer giving nourishment to the tree, slough off. We should not be ashamed to change our methods; rather we should be ashamed never to do so.

Olga Tokarczuk
It is the middle and pure height and whole of summer and a summer night, the held breath, of a planet’s year; high shored sleeps the crested tide: what day of the month I do not know, which day of the week I am not sure, far less what hour of the night.
James Agee

Adrian Younge
Filming ‘Eclipse’ – Eclipse was my favorite book so I was really excited to start filming the movie.

Taylor Lautner

Oswald Chambers

Agnes Repplier
Man’s strength resides in his capacity and desire to elevate himself, so as to attain the good. To travel step by step toward the heights. And that is all he can do. To reach heaven and remain there is beyond his powers: Even Moses had to return to earth. Is it the same for evil?
Elie Wiesel
It wasn’t until my teenage years that a book really left a mark, and that was George Orwell’s ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four.’ It was on the syllabus at school when I was about 16, and I went on to read more of his books. It was the height of the Cold War, so a lot of the messages really resonated at the time.
John Niven

Bobby Sands
We mourn the blossoms of May because they are to whither; but we know that May is one day to have its revenge upon November, by the revolution of that solemn circle which never stops – which teaches us in our height of hope, ever to be sober, and in our depth of desolation, never to despair.

Kemba Walker
We may have broken up at the height of our fame, but it was not the height of our success.

Inez Haynes Irwin
This is it–what all the hoopla is about, what Wuthering Heights is about–it all boils down to this feeling rushing through me in this moment with Joe as our mouths refuse to part. Who knew all this time I was one kiss away from being Cathy and Juliet and Elizabeth Bennet and Lady Chatterley!?
Jandy Nelson
Your mind has some clearness and capacity for right thinking; it opens towards the heights, but for its own sake, – to receive light from above for its own activity.
Sri Aurobindo

The silence in the room had width, height, depth, mass and substance.
Maud Hart Lovelace
I have got height so I am little bit too tall for ‘keeping.
Mitchell Starc
Many people today believe that cynicism requires courage. Actually, cynicism is the height of cowardice. It is innocence and open-heartednes s that requires the true courage — however often we are hurt as a result of it.
Erica Jong
It will be seen that we contemplate a time when man’s will shall be law to the physical world, and he shall no longer be deterredby such abstractions as time and space, height and depth, weight and hardness, but shall indeed be the lord of creation.
Henry David Thoreau
I’m not attracted to dangerous men. I’m attracted, apparently, to height. One ex was 6’6; the one before was 6’4, then 6’3. I like freakishly tall people.
Rose McGowan
Over all, there are now more people under “correctional supervision” in America-more than six million-than were in the Gulag Archipelago under Stalin at its height.
Adam Gopnik
Our human awareness is so powerful that even if we tap only a small part of it we can accomplish more that we ever thought possible. Using our complete potential, we can soar to the height where our accomplishments have great and lasting value for both ourselves and for future generations.
Tarthang Tulku
An unselfish dream, goal, or service can help us to the height of spiritual living.
Harold Klemp
When you have the ball above the net height on grass, it’s easier to play, and when the ball comes at you more slowly, it’s easier to play. But when a guy hits hard and deep, I think you have to have been out there playing to understand, but it’s hard to really hit the ball.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
Just as the difference in height between males is no longer a realistic issue, now that lawsuits have been substituted for hand-to-hand encounters, so the difference in strength between men and women is no longer worth elaboration in cultural institutions.
Margaret Mead
Go to work! Go to work in the morn of a new creation… until you have… reached the height of self-progress, and from that pinnacle bestow upon the world a civilization of your own.
Marcus Garvey
In the end, I’m a racer, I’m not a model, obviously. I lost about a foot of my height for that. And in the end, I’m not trying to be one. I’m trying to be a real person. Try to be a racer.
Hailie Deegan
With Bolshoi technique, the movements are quite large, the jumps are big, and I’m a tall dancer, so I’ve learned to use my height more, to elongate my moves, jumps and positions. I’m physically using my body more to my advantage.
David Hallberg
A dead tree, cut into planks and read from one end to the other, is a kind of line graph, with dates down one side and height along the other, as if trees, like mathematicians, had found a way of turning time into form.
Alice Oswald
The true way goes over a line that, rather than spanning heights, is hardly above the ground. It appears more decidedly to make one trip than to be walked along.
Franz Kafka
I didn’t jump a lot of trees because I didn’t like heights. I liked getting a mirror and walking around with it facing the sky. I’d imagine I was walking in the tops of the trees and falling into the sky, or walking up the stairs whilst going down.
Beth Orton
For some, a perfect body means having muscle mass and fat in proportion to one’s height. For others, it may mean more than just muscle mass and body fat. For me, it’s also about having amazing features.
Sherlyn Chopra
Measure your mind’s height by the shade it casts.
Robert Browning
There are tons of people who have made great music, great art, great whatever, but you don’t know about them until the people lift you to a certain height so that you could even be visible and get any kind of recognition.
Pharrell Williams
The height and value of true virtue consists in the facility, utility, and pleasure of its exercise; so far from difficulty, that boys, as well as men, and the innocent as well as the subtle, may make it their own; and it is by order and good conduct, and not by force, that it is to be acquired.
Michel de Montaigne
Friendship was another illusion like love, though it did not reach the same mad heights. People pretended that they were friends, when the fact was they were brought together by force of circumstances.
R.K. Narayan
Michael Owen isn’t the tallest of lads, but his height more than makes up for that.
Mark Lawrenson
I don’t want to see the military falling. I want to see the military rising to dignified heights of professionalism and true patriotism.
Aung San Suu Kyi
… social environment in childhood affects achieved adult height, life chances, and ultimately mortality rates in adult life. (…) … social circumstances acting in childhood do have a persisting effect on adult disease rates, in addition to influences acting in adulthood.
Michael Marmot
I had spinal surgery to correct scoliosis when I was 16 years old. The only thing that scared me about the procedure was that it would make me two inches taller. At the time, I had a crush on a boy who was about my height – and I was worried that if I were taller than him, it would never happen!
Renee Elise Goldsberry
In a mist the heights can for the most part see each other; but the valleys cannot.
Augustus William Hare
I have a problem with heights in general – and climbing!
Jamie Bell
Even at our height, we were never very polished.
Ronan Keating
Think of all your experiences as a huge tapestry that can be laid out in whatever pattern you wish. Each day you add a new thread to the weaving. Do you craft a curtain to hide behind, or do you fashion a magic carpet that will care you to unequaled heights?
Tony Robbins
The measure of a Christian is not in the height of his grasp but in the depth of his love
Clarence Jordan
Someone who knows enough to become the owner of a tree, and gives thanks to you for the benefits it brings him, is in a better state, even if ignorant of its height in feet and the extent of its spread, than another who measures and counts all its branches but neither owns it nor knows its creator nor loves him.
Saint Augustine
The higher the mountain on which you stand, the less change in the prospect from year to year, from age to age. Above a certain height there is no change.
Henry David Thoreau
I was on HPD–Heathcliff Protection Duty–in Wuthering Heights for two years, and believe me, the ProCaths tried everything. I personally saved him from assassination eight times.
Jasper Fforde
I am 5ft 10in. I got my height from my dad, who was very rangy. I like being tall.
Cornelia Parker
She can tell you the height of the attacker from the trigonometry of the blood spatter, while I’m fuzzy on what trigonometry is.
Ilona Andrews
If one were truly aware of the value of human life, to waste it blithely on distractions and the pursuit of vulgar ambitions would be the height of confusion.
Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
I don’t believe that you can be too short as a quarterback. It’s not about height.
Drew Brees
I’d been raised by my parents to believe barfing your feelings on other people was the height of impoliteness.
Stephen King
That headlong ivy! not a leaf will grow But thinking of a wreath, . . . I like such ivy; bold to leap a height ‘Twas strong to climb! as good to grow on graves As twist about a thyrsus; pretty too (And that’s not ill) when twisted round a comb.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Let us not disdain glory too much; nothing is finer, except virtue. The height of happiness would be to unite both in this life.
François-René de Chateaubriand
For too long, and despite what people told me, I had fallen for what the culture said about beauty, youth, features, heights, weights, hair textures, upper arms.
Anne Lamott
Sometimes I think that if we have to go back, then it certainly won’t be to Jerusalem. Not to the Jerusalem beset with racism that we left at the height of the last Gaza war.
Sayed Kashua
Willem de Kooning is generally credited for coming out of the painterly gates strong in the forties, revolutionizing art and abstraction and reaching incredible heights by the early fifties, and then tailing off.
Jerry Saltz
I like to say I don’t have a fear of heights. I have a fear of human error. I’m very concerned about stupidity.
Elizabeth Banks
Love is the only way on which even the dim-witted reaches certain heights.
Honore de Balzac
It is certainly accurate, as it has often been said and as his letters reveal, that Grandpa supplied his tenth college reunion with alcohol in 1922 at the height of Prohibition.
Jean Kennedy Smith
Shake hands with Pain, give greeting unto Grief, Those angels in disguise, and thy glad soul From height to height, from star to shining star, Shall climb and claim blest immortality.
Thomas Jefferson
Friendship has splendors that love knows not. It grows stronger when crossed, whereas obstacles kill love. Friendship resists time, which wearies and severs couples. It has heights unknown to love.
Mariama BГў
Life everywhere is in vast and endless variety. So it is with life eternal, that gift of God, constituting, in its length and breadth and height and depth, the reward of the righteous. The penitent, dying thief is not going into heaven like the triumphant, dying Paul.
Herrick Johnson
I will not doubt, though sorrows fall like rain, And troubles swarm like bees about a hive; I shall believe the heights for which I strive Are only reached by anguish and by pain; And though I groan and tremble with my crosses, I yet shall see, through my severest losses, The greater gain.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
A man does not measure its height in moments of comfort, but in terms of change and controversy

The only way to reach the mountain peaks of life is to forget about self and help other people reach greater heights.
Zig Ziglar
The recognition thing started to happen in 2009 when ‘Skins’ season three had come out and we were on TV. It used to happen much more when we were in the height of our success, but I never really saw it as a chore or anything like that. It was just quite exciting – you had fans.
Luke Pasqualino
Israel should withdraw from all the areas which it won from the Arabs in 1967, and in particular Israel should withdraw completely from the Golan Heights, from south Lebanon and from the West Bank.
Nelson Mandela
That cross inmate of your household, who has hitherto made life a burden to you, and who has been the Juggernaut car to crush your soul into the dust, may henceforth be a glorious chariot to carry you to the heights of heavenly patience and long-suffering.
Hannah Whitall Smith
It’s very atmospheric. It’s not a building that is a severe statement in the skyline. We need the height; otherwise, the building almost disappears because it is so slender.
Santiago Calatrava
The grass is a very big challenge for me. There are these low bounces and different movements, which is very difficult, especially for my height and weight. When the surfaces change, and I start to play on grass, I start to feel it in the lower back and the lower hamstring.
Tomas Berdych
Maybe it’s only those who’ve made such chaos of their lives who can understand the heights and depths of God’s mercy.
Francine Rivers
Whether it is your height, your weight or your skin, someone is going to pick on something and make fun of it. My legs were just a more obvious target.
Aimee Mullins
War is the supreme test of man in which he rises to heights never approached in any other activity.
George S. Patton
The virtue of Love is nothing and all, or that Nothing visible out of which All Things proceed. Its power is through All Things; its height is as high as God; its greatness is as great as God.
Jakob Bohme
Honestly, being a 5’11” quarterback, not too many people think that you can play in the National Football League. And so for me, you know, I knew that my height doesn’t define my skill set, you know? I believed in my talent. I believed in what God gave me. I believed in the knowledge that I have of the game.
Russell Wilson
From hence, no question, has sprung an observation … confirmed now into a settled opinion, that some long experienced souls in the world, before their dislodging, arrive to the height of prophetic spirits.
Desiderius Erasmus
Obama destroyed this party, folks, literally has destroyed the Democratic Party while elevating himself to whatever heights, if he’s really achieved them, I still don’t believe it, but I’ll go along with the flow for now.
Rush Limbaugh
And the most difficult of tasks to keep Heights which the soul is competent to gain.

Steven Wright
Every man is in some sort a failure to himself. No one ever reaches the heights to which he aspires.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The depth of my sorrow is the height of my joy.
Genevieve
My run cannot be touched. If you want to talk about longevity, you can speak the name Hogan. If you want to talk about white-hot, selling tickets, and taking the business to a height it’s never been – and, with a hell of a supporting cast, I might add – you’re talking about Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Stone Cold Steve Austin
Workers of the world awaken. Break your chains, demand your rights.
All the wealth you make is taken, by exploiting parasites.
Shall you kneel in deep submission from your cradle to your grave?
Is the height of your ambition to be a good and willing slave?
Joe Hill
Never respect men merely for their riches, but rather for their philanthropy; we do not value the sun for its height, but for its use.
Gamaliel Bailey
The way we built ‘Future Shock,’ you have a height map and instanced 3-D objects rendering on top – that, believe it or not, is still how we build today. It’s our basic paradigm for how to build a space.
Todd Howard
At my size and height you have to be able to do everything.
John Collins
The famous statue of Christ the Redeemer that overlooks Rio de Janeiro is only 130 feet tall. McGuinty’s eco-idols [Wind Turbines] will be three times that height, but will serve the same imposing purpose.
Ezra Levant
There is such a thing as looking through a person’s eyes into the heart, and learning more of the height, and breadth, and depth of another’s soul in one hour than it might take you a lifetime to discover, if he or she were not disposed to reveal it, or if you had not the sense to understand it.
Anne Bronte
Through nonviolent resistance the Negro will be able to rise to the noble height of opposing the unjust system while loving the perpetrators of the system.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
As a kid, I was definitely a DC guy. I started reading big time in the ’80s at the height of the Wolfman/Perez ‘New Teen Titans.’ That was definitely the book that hooked me.
Jason Aaron
People are so phobic and crazed about this word ‘commitment.’ It’s weird. Everyone has taken this word to a new height of morality.
Chris Noth
It is difficult to age because society won’t let you. People expect you to look how you did at the height of your fame.
Koo Stark
My parents are OK with me wearing a small heel, up to 1.5 inches high. Heels give me height when I wear such long dresses. For me, they complete the outfit.
Jackie Evancho
Joy is at its keenest when contrasted with sorrow, courage at its height when it follows fear, faith at its noblest when it grows from doubt.
Alice Hegan Rice
Expand your inner circle to include those who can challenge your thinking and escalate you to unreached heights of success.

Petrarch
Let it Ride channels Elmore Leonard at the height of his powers, with dialogue Quentin Tarantino would kill for.
Ken Bruen
I became obsessed watching fashion TV shows when I was a teenager and recognized that I had the height and body frame. I especially became hooked when I saw on ‘E! True Hollywood Story’ how much a model can make and how I can achieve a better living for my family and me.
Joan Smalls
I am comfortable at the height where destiny has put me.
Pranab Mukherjee
I think I would play well in England. With my height I am suited to the long ball and with the kind of crosses they put in, in England I think it would be better for me to play there.
Ali Daei
I love the pole vault because it is a professor’s sport. One must not only run and jump, but one must think. Which pole to use, which height to jump, which strategy to use. I love it because the results are immediate and the strongest is the winner. Everyone knows it. In everyday life that is difficult to prove.
Sergei Bubka
A man of over thirty might be held to be at the height of his powers, but not necessarily of his wisdom.
Dorothy Dunnett
Making fun of anyone’s size, height, scarring, anything like that equals dumb.
Kristin Chenoweth
I had four compression fractures in my spine. They were repaired, but it cost me two inches of height.
Tom Brokaw
I have a head for heights it’s true, but no stomach for the depths. Strange then to have plumbed so many.
Jeanette Winterson
I have memories of the clearest crystal mountain days imaginable, when we fortunates in the height seemed to be sky people living in light alone.
J. E. H. MacDonald
Earth, left silent by the wind of night,Seems shrunken ‘neath the gray unmeasured height.
William Morris
Brings [O’Brian’s] achievement to a new height….Such is O’Brian’s power to possess the imagination that I found I was living in his world as much as my own, wanting to know what happens next. That is the real test. Any contemporary novelist should recognize in Patrick O’Brian a Master of the Art.
Alan Judd
India’s role is not to interfere in what Nepal does but to support Nepal in their development. Nepal should scale new heights of progress.
Narendra Modi
The only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work hard for them.
Michelle Obama
Your success in investing will depend in part on your character and guts, and in part on your ability to realize at the height of ebullience and the depth of despair alike that this too shall pass.
John C. Bogle
The height of stupidity is most clearly demonstrated by the individual who ridicules something he knows nothing about.
Albert Einstein
I have lived for over three hundred years. In that time, the ideal of beauty has changed many times. Large breasts, small, thin, curved, tall, short, they have all been the height of beauty at one time or another. But in all that time, ma petite, I have never desired anyone the way I desire you.” – Jean-Claude
Laurell K. Hamilton
And the great spirit of darkness spread a shroud over me…everything was silent-everything. But upon the heights soughed the everlasting song, the voice of the air, the distant, toneless humming which is never silent.
Knut Hamsun
Physically, I’m not tough. I may think tough. I would say I’m kinda tough and calloused inside. I could use a foot more in height and fifty more pounds and fifteen years off my age and then God help all you bastards.
Humphrey Bogart
We are like dwarfs [the moderns] sitting on the shoulders of giants [the ancients]. Our glance can thus take in more things and reach farther than theirs. It is not because our sight is sharper nor our height greater than theirs; it is that we are carried and elevated by the high stature of the giants.
Bernard of Chartres
If you remember only one thing I’ve said, remember that an idea is a feat of association, and the height of it is a good metaphor. If you have never made a good metaphor, then you don’t know what it’s all about.
Robert Frost
For me, the struggle for women’s human rights began the moment I was born in Tehran at the height of the Iranian Revolution, a time when the status of women was quickly deteriorating.
Nazanin Boniadi
I see, but cannot reach, the height That lies forever in the light.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I’ve had a lot of stories done on me because of my height, but that’s OK. I don’t feel like an exhibit. If that’s what it takes to get noticed, that’s fine.
Shawn Bradley
August is the time when I can feel myself getting stronger as a comedian. I’m at the height of my powers come September.
Nish Kumar
When women are at the height of their beauty power and exercise it, we call it marriage. When men are at the height of their success power and exercise it, we call it a mid-life crisis.
Warren Farrell
With that height, plus a face of an ugliness so transcendant as to be grotesquely beautiful, it was obvious why she had embraced a religious life–Christ was the only man from whom she might expect embrace in return.
Diana Gabaldon
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace, Where never the lark, nor even eagle flew- And, while with silent lifting mind I’ve trod The high, untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand and touched the face of God.
John Gillespie Magee, Jr.
The depth of our despair measures what capability and height of claim we have to hope.
Thomas Carlyle
Height has nothing to do with it, it is your strength that counts.
Lynn Hill
I think when average-size people start taking roles that were meant for dwarfs, that’s a little frustrating because there aren’t that many roles out there for height-challenged actors.
Verne Troyer
We fight wars from progressively great heights and distances, the blessings of technology steadily removing the personal human element from what was historically an extremely personal experience.
Steven Weber
For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, so shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.
Khalil Gibran
Above all, let us never forget that an act of goodness is in itself an act of happiness. It is the flower of a long inner life of joy and contentment; it tells of peaceful hours and days on the sunniest heights of our soul.
Maurice Maeterlinck
Measure your minds height by the shadow it casts.
Rex Stout
The prevalence of suicide, without doubt, is a test of height in civilization; it means that the population is winding up its nervous and intellectual system to the utmost point of tension and that sometimes it snaps.
Havelock Ellis
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
At the height of rush hour, people on the London underground actually say “excuse me.” Imagine what would happen if you tried an insane stunt like that on the New York City subway. The other passengers would take it as a sign of weakness, and there’d be a fight over who got to keep your ears as a trophy.
Dave Barry
As soon as a redwood is cut down or burned, it sends up a crowd of eager, hopeful shoots, which, if allowed to grow, would in a few decades attain a height of a hundred feet, and the strongest of them would finally become giants as great as the original tree.
John Muir
I’m having to deal with the LeBrons, Paul Georges, Gianniss, KDs, the 6ft 8in to 6ft 11in guys who can do everything at my height, shoot, play make, block shots, defend. They set the precedent I’ve got to uphold. There’s no excuse for me. That’s my goal, to be at their level.
John Collins
At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities.

Pity it is we drowse too soon
Pity it is we fall asleep
Ere our song encompass the height
Ere our hand inherit the deep

That I grow sour, who only lack delight; That I descend to sneer, who only grieve: That from my depth I should contemn your height; That with my blame my mockery you receive; Huntress and splendour of the woodland night, Diana of this world, do not believe.
Hilaire Belloc
Artists like Bach and Beethoven erected churches and temples on the heights. I only wantedto build dwellings for men in which they might feel happy and at home
Edvard Grieg
You must not be afraid of small bits of silence. To use it well is the height of confidence and skill for a comedian. It increases the tension in a good way and adds contrast like a curveball complements the fastball of a good pitcher.
Franklyn Ajaye
You’ve got to stand as you exist. You can change the height of the podium to accommodate your height, but you cannot have a stool. You cannot have footstool or any of that.
Rush Limbaugh
The most spectacular UFO incident in Indonesia occurred when during the height of President Sukarno’s confrontation against Malaysia, UFOs penetrated a well-defended area in Java for two weeks at a stretch, and each time were welcomed with perhaps the heaviest anti-aircraft barrage in history.

As from a height, with rapt prophetic eyes,
And heart profoundly stirred;
And weep, and feel the fullness of the past,
The years that are not more.
Matthew Arnold

Then to the depths! – I could as well say height: It’s all the same.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
At its height, Rome’s empire stretched right along the coast of north Africa and sub-Saharan Africans passed to and fro across its porous southern border.
David Olusoga
[I would like to be] one of [the first pop singers to perform in a free Cuba]. I know the list is huge. And it would be hard to pull off — I’d have a lump as big as a tostone [fried green plantain] in my throat. But oh my God, what a dream — it would be the height of my personal and professional career.
Gloria Estefan
I also read about Heathcliff’s unexpected three-year career in Hollywood under the name Buck Stallion and his eventual return to the pages of Wuthering Heights.
Jasper Fforde
My weight is always perfect for my height – which varies.
Nicole Hollander
Everyone’s sort of the same height when you’re looking from bird’s eye view.
Marcus Dunstan
Kids whose puberty begins too soon face not just psychological risks, but physical ones too, with an increased likelihood of cancer, as well as skeletal changes that could prevent them from attaining their full adult height.
Jeffrey Kluger
Chess can never reach its height by following in the path of science … Let us, therefore, make a new effort and with the help of our imagination turn the struggle of technique into a battle of ideas.
Jose Raul Capablanca
When the young Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret were growing up, that was at it’s height and the War cemented that with photographs of the Royal Family having breakfast together and so on, by pinning their reputation so firmly on that particular issue.
Anthony Holden
I think Harry Potter’s very important. Every opportunity I will get for the rest of my life, I would not have got if it wasn’t for Harry Potter. And it would be height of ingratitude if I was ever anything but proud to be associated with these films.
Daniel Radcliffe
Birds teach us something very important: To whatever height you rise, you will finally come down to the ground!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
You see, as Americans we’re not defined by class, and we will never be told our place. What makes our nation exceptional is that anyone, from any background, can climb the highest of heights.
Rick Perry
(I was) happily contended to be climbing the heights and the clouds by the brush method.. …rendering the God-spirit in the mountains.
Marsden Hartley
People stared. Maybe because they were giants compared to everyone else, both in height and muscle mass. Maybe because of the telltale bulge of weapons at their waist. Or maybe because William opened a bag of Doritos and ate while he shopped. Hard to tell.
Gena Showalter
Slash was about my height, and he used the alignment of our bodies to his greatest advantage. I let it go on for a few minutes. Right up until he unzipped his leather pants and pulled out Mr. One Eye.
Jeaniene Frost
We are born to inquire after truth; it belongs to a greater power to possess it. It is not, as Democritus said, hid in the bottom of the deeps, but rather elevated to an infinite height in the divine knowledge.
Michel de Montaigne
While once it was the rank and file that cheered with all the partisan passions at their heights, today it is the party leaders who are cheering themselves; and all by themselves. The mob that is their audience is in one vast universal trance, thinking about something else.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
You cannot properly bring up children when you are 69 or 70 and they are 12 and at the height of their madness. You can physically do it, but I don’t think it’s morally justified.
Felix Dennis
All my life I’ve tried to hide my height. I was taller than everybody else and stood out, so I would slouch and try to hide it.
Tyler Perry
God’s given me so much talent, and my height doesn’t define my skill set. I believe that God has given me a right arm, and for some reason, even though I’m 5’11”, to be able to make the throws and make great decisions on the field and all that.
Russell Wilson
The important thing is not what we look like, but the role we play in our best friend’s life. Friends choose certain friends because that’s the kind of company they are looking for at that specific time, not because they’re the correct height, age, or have the right hair color
Cecelia Ahern
In contentment and joy are found the height and perfection of all love towards our neighbor.
William Ames
I think that when people look at me, and they look at my height and my voice and my coloring, they automatically think, “Tough.”
Jaimie Alexander
The height of success is when you break your business, that is what I say! Just when you think things are really really going well that’s the time to change.
Edward Zander
Well, I like to think that my illness has prevented me from rising to any number of dizzy heights.
Christopher Monckton, 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley
Every specific tax, as well as the nation’s whole tax system, becomes self-defeating above a certain height of the rates.
Ludwig von Mises
I used to go to work with Dad on the weekend. We’d drive past an indoor go-kart track every now and then, and we went there a few times. I was never tall enough, so I always left upset. I think I was seven when I was the right height, and I was like, ‘Please let me have a go.’ It was love at first sight.
Daniel Ricciardo
Meditation … must be power of will and strength of attention, being like a flight to great heights wherein wings must be plied hard though joyfully.
James Vila Blake
You can, when Time is ripe, swope to your feet – at your full height – at a single gesture. Ready to go where? Why… Wherever God motions.
Marita Bonner
As the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, so the denial of God is the height of foolishness.
R. C. Sproul
I am uncomfortable with heights, I’m scared of the dark and I am scared of big crowds.
Bubba Watson
We could have made peace with Syrian dictator Bashar Assad a long time ago. It didn’t happen, because Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu doesn’t want to give up the Golan (Heights).
Tom Segev
Woe is me!
The winged words on which my soul would pierce
Into the heights of love’s rare universe,
Are chains of lead around its flight of fire–
I pant, I sink, I tremble, I expire.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
No one expects to attain to the height of learning, or arts, or power, or wealth, or military glory, without vigorous resolution, strenuous diligence, and steady perseverance. Yet we expect to be Christians without labour, study, or inquiry.
William Wilberforce
Averages don’t always reveal the most telling realities. You know, Shaquille O’Neal and I have an average height of 6 feet.
Robert Reich
Never measure the height of a mountain until you have reached the top. Then you will see how low it was.
Dag Hammarskjold
I grew up in Jackson Heights, Queens, with no money. I was taught not to take anything for granted. If you are too busy being a diva or a freak, then you are not enjoying it.
Lucy Liu

Erin O’Connor
It is no religion to have for one’s wife a girl who is fit only to sit in one’s lap, it is the height of irreligion.

Lewis H. Lapham
I don’t have a fear of heights. I do, however, have a fear of falling from heights.

Wladimir Klitschko
A soft and sheltered Christianity, afraid to be lean and lone, unwilling to face the storms and brave the heights, will end up fat and foul in the cages of conformity.

On the heights it is warmer than those in the valley imagine.

Boy George
I have mentally overcome situations most of you would be terrified to ever attempt: heights, fire, needles, spiders, snakes, angry monkeys, being shot, being hit by a car, going blind – you name it, I have been in a situation where I have had to mentally overcome my inherent fears to do my job.
Criss Angel
Growing up, my height was faithfully tracked from infancy to my late teens on the door frame of my mom’s office – the only place in my family’s home in Toronto where writing on the walls was encouraged.
Dan Levy
The heights charm us, but the steps do not; with the mountain in our view we love to walk the plains.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
‘Course, ‘Santini’ bombed in England, y’know. It came out at the height of the New Wave, which couldn’t have been a worse time for a solo singer trying to sell rock melodies.
Chris Rea
I’m a tall woman. At work, that means a lot of my co-stars have to stand next to me on apple crates. But apparently, my height bodes well in the fashion world.
Taylor Schilling
When I poked Baker Mayfield in the ribs – police video, height – poked him in the ribs, kind of a reach. Oh, it bothered him. He fired back every time. Every time. Because Baker was not ready to go from best college team to lousy NFL team. That’s a certain level maturity and self-esteem that few have.
Colin Cowherd
My desire for knowledge is intermittent; but my desire to commune with the spirit of the universe, to be intoxicated with the fumes, call it, of that divine nectar, to bear my head through atmospheres and over heights unknown to my feet, is perennial and constant.
Henry David Thoreau
Tis sometimes the height of wisdom to feign stupidity.
Cato the Elder
Every article starts that way: Zdeno Chara, six-foot-nine, big strong defenceman. I’m like, Oh my God, does every player get their weight and height listed before they write something about him? No.
Zdeno Chara
The successful teacher is no longer on a height, pumping knowledge at high pressure into passive receptacles.
William Osler
Even though I present myself at the height of glamour and beauty, part of my truth is being desperate and emotional and unafraid of being unattractive.
Sasha Velour
When you sit in a chair, you are not actually sitting there, but levitating above it at a height of one angstrom (a hundred millionth of a centimetre), your electrons and its electrons implacably opposed to any closer intimacy.
Bill Bryson
At the height of creative activity fueled by enthusiasm, there will be enormous intensity and energy behind what you do. You will feel like an arrow that is moving toward the target-and enjoying the journey.
Eckhart Tolle
I’ve always been short and stocky. So when I got into repertory theatre after graduation, I found myself doing character roles: because of my deep voice, shape and height, I was playing 40-year-old, 50-year-old roles at the age of 23.
David Suchet
Tom and I didn’t have a problem with the height differential but Paramount did, so we tried to hide it.

People came up: ‘I thought you were 6 ft tall.’ I’m average height – 5 ft 8 ins, skinny blonde. One guy says to me ‘So, where’s the fox from Mystic Pizza?
Julia Roberts
Even at its height, ‘The Daily Show’ would do one great show a week, one pretty good show a week, and then two ‘meh’ ones. It was filler.
Jason Jones
IMDB is ridiculous… First of all, they had me down as my height being 5ft 7ins. I’m 5ft 10ins. But now they’ve got me down as 6ft 1ins and three quarters. They also have me down as doing Voyage of the Dawn Treader. I wish they had me down as doing Francis Ford Coppola’s next film. That would be a great rumour.
Skandar Keynes
It is a rough road that leads to the heights of greatness. As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.
Seneca the Younger
‘Hold Me’ was a nightmare! It was the middle of the desert in Palm Springs, in the height of summer. I don’t know what possessed us to do that. But we sometimes do crazy things.
Christine McVie
My height was not a deterrent, and it did not make me the person I am. It was like my long brown hair or my brown eyes – a physical characteristic that differentiated me from quite a percentage of the population.
Sinead Burke
It’s tricky territory, height and co-stars. The only thing I can say is that it’s never been an issue in my life.

Height is probably 95 per cent genetic.
Michael Marmot
I personally don’t identify with the character of a man who suffers inferiority complex due to a difference in height with his wife. I am a very confident person in real life and have no such hang-ups.
Rajpal Yadav
Well I knew JD could go out there and knock the guy out because in training I told JD all the time that he has height, reach and size and he has the power. JD has such a right hand, his right hand is like wow, oh man it is bad.
Michael Moorer
Self reliance, the height and perfection of man, is reliance on God.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A skyscraper is at the same time a triumph of the machine and a tremendous emotional experience, almost breath-taking. Not merely its height but its mass and proportions are the result of an emotion, as well as of calculation.
George Gershwin

Teri Polo
When we go deep enough or high enough, we meet. It is only on the surface that we differ and sometimes clash. True, we do not always find our way to the depth or the height, or we do not take the trouble to do so.
Ameen Rihani
My downfall raises me to infinite heights.
Napoleon Bonaparte

Juanita M. Kreps

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Scot McKnight

Michael Bassey
I think that asserting that former President Obama wasn’t born in the United States was just the height of irresponsibility, of course. And Donald Trump corrected that one. There are others that have yet to be corrected.

Tone Bell

Robert Kiyosaki
Despite the mythic heights to which he was raised, Azikiwe was nothing if not pragmatic, a realist always conscious of his limits and ever eager to extract all that was possible from that limited horizon.
Nnamdi Azikiwe
I remembered being young in the late ’70s and early ’80s and growing up at the height of the Cold War. I remembered how scared I was of nuclear weapons, how often I though about them and about the possibility of everything and everyone I knew vanishing in a second in temperatures hotter than the centre of the sun.
John Niven
When you play arenas you can create whatever you want. At a theater the height of the stage and the limitations of the theater can make you feel more separate from the audience.

Paul Heyman
After being on ‘Oprah’ for a couple of months, I got my first royalty check for $1,478,392.17. I will never forget it. At the height of my career, I made $3.3 million. Unbelievable. From welfare in the projects to $3.3 million.

Jeb Bush

Steven Wright
Columbia Heights was a poor, messed up area, and the church was in the middle of it. What happened inside was a reflection of the community. I actually saw my first rock concert on the altar of that church [St. Stephen’s].

Moliere
When I was coming up through the programs with the Amateur Basketball Association, it was height: they looked for the tall players, and they looked to develop us. I was 15 when they first got me.
Anne Donovan
It isn’t the height that scares me – the height makes me feel alive with energy, every organ and vessel and muscle in my body singing at the same pitch. Then I realize what it is. It’s him. Something about him makes me feel like I am about to fall. Or turn to liquid. Or burst into flames.
Veronica Roth
Harry Truman’s decision to fire Douglas MacArthur at the height of the Korean War in April 1951 shocked the American political system and astonished the world.

H. W. Brands
At the height of my film career I joined politics because I felt I had more to do than just act.

Jimmy Page
I play a lot of basketball and racquetball, as they’re both great for your feet and hand eye coordination. Other drills can help as well, such as simply catching a football in distant positions from different heights and velocities.
Antonio Cromartie
Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat; long is the road thereto and rough and steep at first; but when the heights are reached, then there is ease, though grievously hard in the winning.

Jonny Lee Miller

Patrick Chan
I may climb perhaps to no great heights, but I will climb alone.
Cyrano de Bergerac
Men have hitherto treated women like birds which have strayed down to them from the heights; as something more delicate, more fragile, more savage, stranger, sweeter, soulful–but as something which has to be caged up so that it shall not fly away.
Friedrich Nietzsche
A musical, in its true form, is where emotions reach a height where true spoken word cannot be enough, and you must sing. That’s all it is. It’s not posh; it’s not out of your reach. It’s the most visceral way to tell a story.
Donna Lynne Champlin
Into this neutral air Where blind skyscrapers use Their full height to proclaim The strength of Collective Man, Each language pours its vain Competitive excuse.
W. H. Auden
I learned that strength, like height, is measured by who you’re standing next to.
Leslie Feinberg
Why should self-indulgent nonsense – whatever its professed political orientation – be lauded as the height of scholarly achievement?
Alan Sokal
Did I not feel that the time has come for the questions of women’s wrongs to be laid before the public? Did I not believe that women herself must do this work, for women alone understand the height, the depth, the breadth of her degradation. – Seneca Falls Convention, 1848
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
We all place ourselves at various levels, and we are constantly falling from these heights. It is the falls we are ashamed of. Self-esteem is the cause of our shame, of our fall. It is this self-esteem that must be understood, and not the fall.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
Heights of the spirit can only be climbed by passing through the portals of humility.
Rudolf Steiner
Throughout her career, many women would view Mrs. Clinton as an imperfect vessel for the feminist cause. She was a Yale-educated lawyer who, at the height of the 1970s women’s movement, moved to Arkansas to put her own ambitions on hold in furtherance of her husband’s career.
Amy Chozick
At the height of the British Empire very few English novels were written that dealt with British power. It’s extraordinary that at the moment in which England was the global superpower the subject of British power appeared not to interest most writers.
Salman Rushdie
He who calls in the aid of an equal understanding doubles his own; and he who profits by a superior understanding raises his powers to a level with the height of the superior standing he unites with.
Edmund Burke

George Eliot
The subject and the reality of having children came at the height of my career.
Melissa Etheridge

Ralph Waldo Emerson
Surely there is grandeur in knowing that in the realm of thought, at least, you are without a chain; that you have the right to explore all heights and depth; that there are no walls nor fences, nor prohibited places, nor sacred corners in all the vast expanse of thought.
Robert Green Ingersoll
The mathematical giant [Gauss], who from his lofty heights embraces in one view the stars and the abysses.
Farkas Bolyai
The true way goes over a rope which is not stretched at any great height but just above the ground. It seems more designed to make people stumble than to be walked upon.
Franz Kafka
Thus, in a middle course between these heights and depths, they drifted through life rather than lived, the prey of aimless days and sterile memories, like wandering shadows that could have acquired substance only by consenting to root themselves in the solid earth of their distress.
Albert Camus
Madam Walker was an incredible woman, but she wasn’t the only one of her time who was. She just took it to the highest height.

Sylvia Plath
Sleeping is the height of genius
Soren Kierkegaard
Air travel is the safest form of travel aside from walking; even then, the chances of being hit by a public bus at 30,000 feet are remarkably slim. I also have no problem with confined spaces. Or heights. What I am afraid of is speed.
Sloane Crosley
This is your captain speaking. Welcome aboard flight…one, from…here to there. We’ll be cruising at a height of ten feet, going up to twelve and a half feet if we see anything big. And our copilot today is a flask of coffee.
Eddie Izzard
My fans tell me my height is my biggest asset.
Tabu
You begin to fly when you let go of self-limiting beliefs and allow your mind and aspirations to rise to greater heights.
Brian Tracy
I shudder to think. I might wear lace collars and laugh flower petals and pearls. People might try to pat me. I see them think it. My height triggers the puppy-kitten reflex- Must touch-and I’ve found that since you can’t electrify yourself like a fence, the next best thing is to have murderer’s eyes.
Laini Taylor
When I volunteered for the draft as a 20-year-old, mischievous guy at the height of the Vietnam War, most thought I was destined to pass from this earth early!

Mark Canton
After the Oscar for ‘Shampoo,’ I had a sense, even as I was walking up to get it, that this was the height of where I was going to go as an actress. And I felt that now was the time, if I wanted a longer life in the arts, that I had to jump from acting to directing.
Lee Grant
If a hermit lives in a state of ecstasy, his lack of comfort becomes the height of comfort. He must relinquish it.
Jean Cocteau

David Oyelowo
It was the height of the Depression, and suddenly I am earning pots of money.
Ann Rutherford
On how to make the game more exciting – Eliminate the referees, raise the basket four feet, double the size of the basketball, limit the height of the players to 5 feet 9 inches, bring back the centre jump, allow taxi drivers in for free and allow the players to carry guns.
Al McGuire
Her form, though not so correct as her sister’s, in having the advantage of height, was more striking; and her face was so lovely, that when in the common cant of praise she was called a beautiful girl, truth was less violently outraged than usually happens.
Jane Austen
I always wanted to be less tall. When I was at school I was the same height as all of my girlfriends and then suddenly I was turning 12 and almost overnight I got really tall.

Larry David
We can scale the heights of mountains and see the world rayed out before us, but we fail to recognize that which is before us
Ruth St. Denis

Jimmy Chin
I certainly did feel inferior. Because of class. Because of strength. Because of height. I guess if I’d been able to hit somebody in the nose, I wouldn’t have been a comic.

Robert Thurman
Certainly I’m not overweight. I’m the perfect weight for my height.

I have covered wars, before the epidemic began and since. They are all ugly and painful and unjust, but for me, nothing has matched the dread I felt while walking through the Castro, the Village, or Dupont Circle at the height of the AIDS epidemic.
Michael Specter
I had fractures in my spine that had to be repaired that came as a big surprise; nobody warned me that I might get some really severe, threatening fractures. It was painful, and I lost two inches of height, bang!

Hannah Waddingham
The pitch is always going to be the same lines, same goal height. It’s just a game of football.
Jordan Pickford
Please stop waiting for a better and more appropriate time to become happy and focus on the moment you live in. Happiness is not an arrival, it is the journey itself. Many people seek for happiness above the height of human beings, some below. Yet, happiness is exactly at the exact height of human beings.
Confucius

Emma Watkins
Now I am steel-set: I follow the call to the clear radiance and glow of the heights.
Henrik Ibsen
It is the height of professionalism to be able to make an ordinary piece of music sound good. When playing routine melodic studies the player must treat them as if they are musical value.
Howard Snell
But enough is enough. One turns at last even from glory itself with a sigh of relief. From the depths of mystery, and even from the heights of splendor, we bounce back and hurry for the latitudes of home.
Annie Dillard
Okay everybody, line up in alphabetical order according to your height.
Casey Stengel
Musical theatre goes through cycles. I came in when it was at the absolute height of musical theatre as I remember it. It was the age of the long-runners.
Ruthie Henshall
Throwing Ronald Reagan out of office at the height of his popularity, with inflation and interest rates down, the economy moving and the country at peace, would have required God on the ticket and She was not available!

Charles Spurgeon
Without great mountains we cannot reach great heights.
Richard Paul Evans
I like normal stuff people fear – like spiders and heights. I’m frightened by the unknown, by things that are hard to figure out and get a grip on.
Haley Joel Osment
I have lost every respect for U.S. justice. The judgment by the Supreme Court and the other, even more absurd judgment by a New York circuit court deciding that Iran should pay damages for 9/11 are the height of absurdity.
Mohammad Javad Zarif
On a starred night Prince Lucifer uprose, Tired of his dark dominion swung the fiend . . . He reached a middle height, and at the stars, Which are the brain of heaven, he looked, and sank. Around the ancient track marched, rank on rank, The army of unalterable law.
George Meredith
That’s exactly how I want you to feel. When you finish this book, I want you to be filled with curiosity. I want you to say, “I have to find out what happens next,” and then I want you to head to your nearest library or bookstore to pick up a copy of Wuthering Heights.
Clare B. Dunkle
I love heights. I love speed. Im on the verge of being a pyromaniac. Maybe my phobia is boredom.
Erin Wasson
The United States imprisons a larger percentage of its black population than South Africa did at the height of apartheid. In Washington, D.C., our nation’s capitol, it is estimated that three out of four young black men (and nearly all those in the poorest neighborhoods) can expect to serve time in prison.
Michelle Alexander
The only thing fame has changed in Wizkid is that I added some accessories. I have got nice chains, watches, and nice clothes. Asides that, I am still Wizkid. I no tall, still same height.
WizKid
Though the human heart may have to pause for rest when climbing the heights of affection it rarely stops on the slippery slope of hatred.

Of old sat Freedom on the heights
The thunders breaking at her feet:
Above her shook the starry lights;
She heard the torrents meet.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
I didn’t respond to that. I’m not scared of heights. I’m just scared of falling from heights.
John Zakour
It makes one’s head heavy and giddy, as if one were not looking back down the receding perspectives of time but rather down on the earth from a great height, from one of those towers whose tops are lost to view in the clouds
W. G. Sebald
Profound music leads us beyond language…to the dark roots of our scream and the celestial heights of our silence.
Cornel West
The true way to be humble is not to stoop until you are smaller than yourself, but to stand at your real height against some higher nature that will show you what the real smallness of your greatness is.
Phillips Brooks
Reality show TV star is a familiar job, and to knock it would be the height of hypocrisy for someone like me who has made their career on television.
Susanna Reid
At the height of the Cold War, when Ronald Reagan was president, the Soviets and their allies and satellites did not shirk human rights debates with the West. They had their arguments ready.
Elliott Abrams
It is a gentle and affectionate thought, that in immeasurable height above us, at our first birth, the wreath of love was woven with sparkling stars for flowers.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Although we have not assigned God a sexual orientation, a height, or eye color, we have thought nothing of assigning a gender and a religion (God always belongs to the same one we do).
Rosalie Maggio
The height of your success is determined by the depth of your belief.
Zig Ziglar
I was sure ‘Summer Heights High’ would be a cult ABC thing; I had no idea it would be such a big hit.
Chris Lilley
The policy of letting the free market determine the height of wage rates is the only reasonable and successful full-employment policy.
Ludwig von Mises
I’m scared shitless of heights.
Mark Cuban
Five-foot-8 is a perfectly normal height for a woman – it’s slightly but not at all unusually tall and certainly shouldn’t be causing you any torment.
Mallory Ortberg
I can understand why people laugh and make jokes, but I’m comfortable with being this tall. It’s not as if I’ve had a sudden growth spurt. I’ve always been like this, so I get used to the constant height references.
Peter Crouch
Even though a man may be unable to attain such a height of sanctity, he ought to desire it, so as to do at least in desire what he cannot carry out in effect.
Philip Neri
The body sprang At once to the height, and stayed; but the soul,-no!
Robert Browning
When I’m in the game, in the paint, I try to use my height and help the team.
Boban Marjanovic
I was really influenced by Joan Didion and Pauline Kael; they were both at the height of their influence when I was coming into my own as a reader.
Caitlin Flanagan
Impulse arrested spills over, and the flood is feeling, the flood is passion, the flood is even madness: it depends on the force of the current, the height and strength of the barrier. The unchecked stream flows smoothly down its appointed channels into a calm well being.
Aldous Huxley
I felt like my career started late, and I think it was because of my height – and maybe some of my confidence issues.
Allison Janney
You see, I remember myself as a tall, lanky, awkward college fellow who was cast in school theatricals, on the strength of his height alone.
Fred MacMurray
The sum and substance of my teaching is this: Don’t be dishonest to your vital breath; worship that only, abide in that only, accept it as yourself. And when you worship in this manner, it can lead you anywhere, to any heights- this is the quintessence of my talks.
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
In Christ and through Christ man has acquired full awareness of his dignity, of the heights to which he is raised, of the surpassing worth of his own humanity, and of the meaning of his existence.
Pope John Paul II
It is not for the world to judge, but to crown them all alike. Each and all lived out their own being, did their work in their own way, and carried a reluctant, stupid humanity to greater
possibilities and grander heights.
Clarence Darrow
I have read that, on the average, the Japanese are getting taller, but at the moment they seem to be about the same height as American junior-high-school students, only with fewer guns.
Dave Barry
Hostile armies may face each other for years, striving for the victory which is decided in a single day. This being so, to remain in ignorance of the enemy’s condition simply because one grudges the outlay of a hundred ounces of silver in honors and emoluments, is the height of inhumanity.
Sun Tzu
And that will increasingly dawn on people. The demand for controlling the commanding heights will grow.
Barbara Castle, Baroness Castle of Blackburn
Thou hidden love of God, whose height, Whose depth unfathomed no man knows, I see from far thy beauteous light, Only I sigh for thy repose.
John Wesley
I think if I’d been born ten years earlier when Ma was at the height of ‘Avengers’ fame, it would have been a different kettle of fish altogether, but she was very much a ma first and an actress second for my formative years.
Rachael Stirling
A true Vor, Miles told himself severely, does not bury his face in his liegewoman’s breasts and cry–even if he is at a convenient height for it.
Lois McMaster Bujold
From the height from which the great look down on the world all the rest of mankind seem equal.
William Hazlitt
Even now when I am answering a question I am at the height of my own meditation.
Sri Chinmoy
If I can join hands with FIFA and other continental bodies to promote football globally, then I can do more than that to raise African football to new heights.
Roger Milla
I find it actually the height of romance to legally bind yourself to someone because you’re really taking care of someone, and letting them take care of you. I actually have no cynicism about that.
Jen Kirkman
I can tell when men are threatened by my height.
Allison Janney
Imagining is in itself the very height and life of poetry, which, by a kind of enthusiasm or extraordinary emotion of the soul, makes it seem to us that we behold those things which the poet paints.
John Dryden
Heaven did not seem to be my home; and I broke my heart with weeping to come back to earth; and the angels were so angry that they flung me out into the middle of the heath on the top of Wuthering Heights; where I woke sobbing for joy.
Emily Bronte
The height of the pulleys from the ground was twelve yards, and consequently, when the weights had descended through that distance, they had to be wound up again in order to renew the motion of the paddle.
James Prescott Joule
Music at its best…is the grand archeology into and transfiguration of our guttural cry, the great human effort to grasp in time our deepest passions and yearnings as prisoners of time. Profound music leads us–beyond language–to the dark roots of our scream and the celestial heights of our silence.
Cornel West
I have a major phobia of height and water.
Jasmin Bhasin
I piss on you all from a considerable height.
Louis-Ferdinand Celine
All the great political music was made at the height of political confrontations.
Billy Bragg
Many people who say they’re looking for love are merely looking for superficial comfort. They’re not looking yet for the true romantic adventure. For that entails a readiness to die to who we were, in order to be born again prepared for love, truly worthy of the romantic heights.
Marianne Williamson
Humor is not a postscript or an incidental afterthought; it is a serious and weighty part of the world’s economy. One feels increasingly the height of the faculty in which it arises, the nobility of things associated with it, and the greatness of services it renders.
Oscar W. Firkins
Beautiful things grow to a certain height and then they fail and fade off, breathing out memories as they decay.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
We ascend to the heights of contemplation by the steps of action.
Pope Gregory I
The deep of your maturity determines the height of your marriage.
Matthew Ashimolowo
We may distinguish six kinds of terrain, to wit: (1) Accessible ground; (2) entangling ground; (3) temporising ground; (4) narrow passes; (5) precipitous heights; (6) positions at a great distance from the enemy.
Sun Tzu
About the time of the expulsion of the Tarquins from Rome, the Etruscan power had reached its height.
Theodor Mommsen
I’ve always been drawn to the Edwardian period in England. To me, it seems like such a fascinating time, when the British Empire was at the height of its powers and the strict mores of the Victorian age were dissipating into the decadence of King Edward’s reign.
Kevin Kwan
The heights of popularity and patriotism are still the beaten road to power and tyranny; flattery to treachery; standing armies to arbitrary government; and the glory of God to the temporal interest of the clergy.
David Hume
It was Ba’s inspiration which helped me reach the heights of my inner self. She was my priceless jewel.
Mahatma Gandhi
I’m afraid one thing – I don’t like heights. Heights bug me out. I’m not cool with heights. I refuse to do a comedy show 12 stories up. I’m fearless about everything else.
J. B. Smoove
Learning is pleasurable but doing is the height of enjoyment.
Novalis
I had placed my stick on the table, as I do every evening. It had been specially made to suit my height, to enable me to walk without too much difficulty. As I was standing up, a customer called to me: ‘Monsieur, don’t forget your pencil.’ It was very unkind, but most funny.
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
I love going for a swim. Growing up in England, anywhere with a pool seems like the height of glamour to me.
Damian Lewis
Invariably something happens at a U.S. Open where the golf course gets out of control one day, they have one pin that’s out of control. It always seems to happen. But they’ve gotten better about the height of the rough.
Payne Stewart
I liked teaching Henry James. When you look down at a Henry James novel from a helicopter height, you find an intricate spider web that all clings together.
Helen Vendler
There is a universal element in man which he can assert by so acting as if the purpose of the Universe were also his purpose. It is the function of the supreme ordeals of life to develop in men this power, to give to their life this distinction, this height of dignity, these vast horizons.
Felix Adler
Your ecstasy is a movement towards the height and your meditation is a movement towards the depth. And once you have both, your life becomes a celebration.
Rajneesh
When I was about 25, I went to a hand reader, this Indian guy in a funky neighborhood. He said: The height of your success won’t happen until you’re in your late 40s.
Helen Mirren
I have the power of my height. Growing up, it was a total drawback. There was nothing good about it at all.
Allison Janney
When mom and dad were at the height of their careers, and things were super-crazy, and they couldn’t leave their houses, there wasn’t social media. It was all about autographs. Now, everyone’s the press. I feel fame is perforated: it can be glorious, but it can completely destroy a human, too.
Dakota Johnson
There is nothing more man needs than Divine Mercy – that love which is benevolent, which is compassionate, which raises man above his weakness to the infinite heights to the holiness of God.
Pope John Paul II
I have acquired – some would say deservedly – quite a few rivals: former Israeli politicians, some of whom at their height were stars beloved by large parts of the public. But today, they aren’t in politics, and when they sit alone in their room, they say to themselves that Barak is the one who showed them out the door.
Ehud Barak
I can’t do much about my height, but I can do a lot of things in strength and speed and work on that. I’m going to try to do that the best I can to make me a better ballplayer.
Andrew Benintendi
God descends to re-ascend. He comes down; down from the heights of absolute being into time and space, down into humanity … down to the very roots and sea-bed of the nature He has created. But He goes down to come up again and bring the ruined world up with Him.
C. S. Lewis
Rendering oneself unarmed when one had been the best-armed, out of a height of feeling-that is the means to real peace, which must always rest on a peace of mind.
Friedrich Nietzsche
My profession lent itself nicely to my vocation for heights. It freed me of any bitterness towards my fellow men, who were alwaysin my debt, without my owing them anything. It placed me above the judge whom, I in turn judged, above the defendant whom I forced into gratitude.
Albert Camus
If you can bow in front of the justice at the height of your power, it means that you are really a just person!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance
Albert Einstein
I was a black boy at the height of the crack era, which meant that my instructors pitched education as the border between those who would prosper in America, and those who would be fed to the great hydra of prison, teenage pregnancy and murder.
Ta-Nehisi Coates
A lot of people judge you on your height, your wingspan, but it’s really about the will and the determination that defines a person.
Paul Millsap
Keep on pushing the boundaries and reaching for higher heights.
Puff Daddy
When I started out in this business, dance was not at the height it is now. It was almost like, you’re either a dancer or an actress.
Jenna Dewan
Ah, what a life is theirs who live in Christ; How vast the mystery! Reaching in height to heaven, and in its depth The unfathomed sea!
Elizabeth Prentiss
I have a love/hate relationship with my height – I am 6 ft. 4 in.
John Lithgow
Somebody finally has to get out an ad, often after hours. Somebody has to stare at a blank piece of paper. Probably nothing was ever more bleak. This is probably the very height of lonesomeness. He is one person and he is alone
Fairfax M. Cone
I was 13 when I reached my present height. I was so skinny I looked like one of those starving people in Africa. The boys in my class would beat me up because I was too tall.
Brigitte Nielsen
When I’m in the audience of Broadway shows, I feel like I’m in the presence of something really special with artists working at the height of their craft and doing the best work that they possibly can.
Ethan Slater
I think it’s the height of patriotism to continue to exercise your right as a citizen and to hold your government to account. Isn’t that what the very essence of democracy is about?
Valerie Plame
Proportion is that agreeable harmony between the several parts of a building, which is the result of a just and regular agreement of them with each other; the height to the width, this to the length, and each of these to the whole.
Vitruvius
With my height in high school, I was really thinking basketball. But I guess I wasn’t that good, because my sophomore year I didn’t make the team. That was a really brutal moment for me.
Dean Potter
I jumped from a height of 45 feet and though I landed on the boxes. I broke my leg.
Mukesh Tiwari
You must realize that if you are going to reach the heights you have been called to reach, you may elicit some criticism from those who are jealous, petty or angry because they were left behind.
T. D. Jakes
According to String Theory, what appears to be empty space is actually a tumultuous ocean of strings vibrating at the precise frequencies that create the 4 dimensions you and I call height, width, depth and time.
Roy H. Williams
An army may be likened to water, for just as flowing water avoids the heights and hastens to the lowlands, so an army avoids strength and strikes weakness.
Sun Tzu
Whatever fortune has raised to a height, she has raised only to cast it down.
Seneca the Younger
In South Korea, they believe that when you turn 60, you’ve become a baby again and the rest of your life should be totally about joy and happiness, and people should leave you alone, and I just think that that’s the height of intelligence.
Alice Walker
I want to ski down Mount Cho Oyu in the Himalayas when I am 85, descending from a height of 8,201 meters.
Yuichiro Miura
It was a weird stage of my life, to leave Simon & Garfunkel at the height of our success and become a math teacher. I would talk them through a math problem and ask if anyone had any questions, and they would say, ‘What were the Beatles like?’
Art Garfunkel
Trees that, like the poplar, lift upward all their boughs, give no shade and no shelter, whatever their height. Trees the most lovingly shelter and shade us, when, like the willow, the higher soar their summits, the lower drop their boughs.
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
We were always authentic when it came to our style. From when we started to the height of our fame, we’ve always been consistent in our look because how we dressed was a result of how we felt. We weren’t playing dress-up.
Tionne Watkins
The superior man honors his virtuous nature, and maintains constant inquiry and study, seeking to carry it out to its breadth and greatness, so as to omit none of the more exquisite and minute points which it embraces, and to raise it to its greatest height and brilliancy.
Confucius
It stands in the light transfigured, It speaks from the heights above, “Each Soul Is Its Own Redeemer; There Is No Law But Love.”
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Even if it doesn’t fit the woman, like, let’s say a very short skirt, and the woman doesn’t have the legs or the height to wear the skirt, but she has to wear it because it’s fashionable. Don’t do it! If it doesn’t look good on you, don’t worry about it.
Carolina Herrera
Well, I believe that the depth of your struggle can determine the height of your success. I was inspired to come out of everything I’ve been through and end up in a place where I never thought that I would be.
R. Kelly
I respect Hulk Hogan because his career lasted some 30 odd years. I think I lasted about 15, but during my peak years, I took the business to a height it never seen before.
Stone Cold Steve Austin
The final flight make your last journey from this strange world soar for the heights where there is no more God has created your wings not to be dormant as long as you are alive you must try more and more to use your wings to show you’re alive.
Rumi
She walks–the lady of my delight– A sheperdess of sheep. Her flocks are thoughts. She keeps them white; She guards them from the steep. She feeds them on the fragrant height, And folds them in for sleep.
Alice Meynell
Narrative is linear, but action has breadth and depth as well as height and is solid.
Thomas Carlyle
Here I found myself in my early 20s, at the height of my career, up against something I was totally powerless against. I had enemies I had never heard of because of this. I certainly didn’t have needles hanging out of my arms, nor did I smoke anything.
Irene Cara
Dolls fire our collective imagination, for better and – too often – for worse. From life-size dolls the same height as the little girls who carry them, to dolls whose long hair can ‘grow’ longer, to Barbie and her fashionable sisters, dolls do double duty as child’s play and the focus of adult art and adult fear.
Ellen Datlow
It is the height of stupidity to claim that men who for a thousand years have had the power to berate us, to fleece us and to oppress us with impunity, will now agree, with good grace, to be our equals.
Jean-Paul Marat
On the heights, all paths are paved with daggers. -Old Seanchan saying
Robert Jordan
A civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights, and where man is free to rise to greater heights, are the aims of Scientology.
L. Ron Hubbard
Knowledge is the ability to love, the ability to feel, the ability to probe the depths and the heights of life. It is the experience of the experiencer, and at the same time, it is beyond that.
Frederick Lenz
‘NME’ and ‘Melody Maker’ were saying I was the next Lou Reed or Van Morrison. So, everyone has their own version as to when the height of my career was.
Mark Kozelek
Whether you’re 7 feet 6 inches or normal height, stealing someone’s bike is low.
Shawn Bradley
The studies I’ve seen about readability and legibility tend to focus on a specific set of metrics: size, not just the point size, but things like the size of the lower case letters as a proportion of the overall letter height, and line length. People simply can’t read really small type set in really long lines.
Michael Bierut
After having struggled madly to solve all problems, after having suffered on the heights of despair, in the supreme hour of revelation, you will find that the only answer, the only reality, is silence.
Emile M. Cioran
I’m not scared of snakes, spiders or heights. I have three children; as a mum, you can’t be afraid of things like that.
Britt Ekland
Instead of plastic surgery, I’d rather have a height enhancement surgery.
L.Joe
An idea is a feat of association, and the height of it is a good metaphor.
Robert Frost
As we’re standing there I realize we’re almost exactly the same height. We must look like the dark and light side of an Oreo cookie, and I think how just as easily it could have been the other way around. She could be blocking my path; I could be trying to slip around her into the dark.
Lauren Oliver
The depth of darkness to which you can descend and still live is an exact measure of the height to which you can aspire to reach.
Pliny the Elder
No other country in the world imprisons so many of its racial or ethnic minorities. The United States imprisons a larger percentage of its black population than South Africa did at the height of apartheid
Michelle Alexander
Those who, relying upon themselves only, not looking for assistance to anyone besides themselves, it is they who will reach the top-most height.
Gautama Buddha
To get a traveling salesman drunk is the height of impossibility.
Honore de Balzac
All right everyone, line up alphabetically according to your height.
Casey Stengel
Men often treat others worse than they treat themselves, but they rarely treat anyone better. It is the height of folly to expect consideration and decency from a person who mistreats himself.
Thomas Szasz
I’m still pretty terrified of heights.
Jamie Bell
Man thinks his mind’s love for world power and his heart’s love for world peace can live together. Indeed, this is the height of man’s stupidity.
Sri Chinmoy
You are not judged by the height you have risen, but from the depth you have climbed.
Frederick Douglass
My biggest fear, I think falling from a great height. If I want to keep myself awake at night I imagine I’m on the top of the North or South Tower in 9/11, wondering whether I’m going to be burnt to death or I’m going to jump. And I think I would burn to death. And yet I’m impressed by the fact that hundreds didn’t.
Ian Mcewan
When I was 22, I thought I couldn’t wear heels because of my height.
Rebecca Hall
For my generation, coming of age at the height of the Cold War, fear of nuclear winter seemed the leading existential threat on the horizon. But the danger posed by war to all humanity-and to our planet-is at least matched by climate change.
Ban Ki-moon
At a time when we are pleading with foreign governments to stop the export of cocaine, it is the height of hypocrisy for the United States to export tobacco.
C. Everett Koop
Vis a vis the Golan Heights, the present government of Israel, under my leadership, is the first government that is ready to speak about a withdrawal.
Yitzhak Rabin
Americas presidents tend to die young. Maybe it is in the nature of the men who reach such heights, or of the job once they attain it.
Nancy Gibbs
As a working woman at the height of my career, I know age has only enhanced my professional and personal abilities. It has brought a sense of calm to the drive for success.
Bonnie Hammer
One of the Life Saving men snapped the camera for us, taking a picture just as the machine had reached the end of the track and had risen to a height of about two feet.
Orville Wright
Tomorrow we will only give them a leaf of the tree of our love, a leaf which will fall on the earth like if it had been made by our lips like a kiss which falls from our invincible heights to show the fire and the tenderness of a true love.
Pablo Neruda
When one drives away the negligent through vigilance, he climbs the heights of wisdom, and can see the suffering masses. Serene, you look upon the lost like one that stands on a mountain sees those that stand upon the plain.
Gautama Buddha
From the rough, I’d use a 6-iron, play the ball back an inch or two and swing down on a steeper angle to catch the ball first. It also helps to aim slightly left and open the clubface at address. You’ll get more height on the shot, and the club will cut through the grass more easily.
Ernie Els
I love my height because when I’m doing gymnastics, it really benefits the sport – and also, I think being short is kind of cute.
Laurie Hernandez
The way of the superior man may be compared to what takes place in traveling, when to go to a distance we must first traverse the space that is near, and in ascending a height, when we must begin from the lower ground.
Confucius
Healing proceeds from the depths to the heights.
Carl Jung
To pay out millions upon millions of dollars in bonuses for incomplete work, poor performance, and unacceptable products is the height of government waste and mismanagement.
Jim Gibbons
I’m open to all kind of scripts. As long as there’s enough scope to perform, I’d take up the offer. In fact, before Yuvan and ‘TT’ happened, I got an opportunity to work with a top actor-director combination. But my height proved to be a setback.
Rakul Preet Singh
It is my belief one should not belittle the artist; while, however glorious his fame may seem, his time on Mount Olympus as an honourable guest of Zeus is short. It’s a pity, but all too eager will the common folk drag him from this etherial heights to the low and trodden earth.
Ludwig van Beethoven
When I paint, I never think of selling. People simply fail to understand that we paint in order to experiment and to develop ourselves as we strive for greater heights.
Edvard Munch
I’m too tall. I am 6ft 7in, so I’ve been most people’s height at some point in my life, and 6ft 4in is the best. You’re tall, but you don’t have to bend when you go through a door.
Stephen Merchant
Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O, no! It is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests and is never shaken.
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
William Shakespeare
Things happen along the way in our path. Instead of looking at it as a wall that’s being put up in front of us, look at it as as opportunity to scale new heights and to climb that wall – to see and do things you didn’t think you were capable of.
Robin Roberts
What has made it work, or what makes certain paintings successful or not, has to do with my being a painter and a thinking, feeling person, more than my sex, color, height, origin.
Helen Frankenthaler
I guess what I’ve been told makes me dangerous is my height and length, so I just use that.
Devon Cajuste
On the heights it is warmer than people in the valley suppose, especially in winter. The thinker recognizes the full import of this simile.
Friedrich Nietzsche
I’d never been a tall guy, and the girls I’d dated had all been my height–teenaged girls grow faster than guys, which is a cruel trick of nature.
Cory Doctorow
Neither the depth of despondency nor the height of euphoria tells you how long either will last.
Thomas Sowell
It helps me get rebounds, I can see over the defense pretty easily, and yeah, I thank God he blessed me with height.
Lonzo Ball
We broke up in ’91, but we didn’t fade out, we didn’t burn ourselves out, we were on pause for 26 years. We stopped at the height, we were No. 1 and we just broke up.
DJ Yella
To love the public, to study universal good, and to promote the interest of the whole world, as far as lies within our power, is the height of goodness, and makes that temper which we call divine.
Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl of Shaftesbury
I have seen the sea lashed into fury and tossed into spray, and its grandeur moves the soul of the dullest man; but I remember that it is not the billows, but the calm level of the sea from which all heights and depths are measured.
James A. Garfield
One year, I went to Cannes with the film ‘The Indian Runner’ that Sean Penn directed. Everyone else in the film was all the same height, and on the red carpet, when they were taking photos, none of them would stand next to me, and I totally got it.
David Morse
I’m a fiction writer, and I do write essays, but I am not a poet. And I absolutely reject the phrase ‘woman writer’ as anti-feminist. I wrote an essay about this as far back as 1977, at the height of the neo-feminist movement.
Cynthia Ozick
Shakespeare is, essentially, the emanation of the Renaissance. The overflow of his fame on the Continent in later years was but the sequel of the flood of the Renaissance in Western Europe. He was the child of that great movement, and marks its height as it penetrated the North with civilization.
George Edward Woodberry
I was never over-weight, just under-tall. The correct height for my weight at the moment is seven feet ten and a half inches.
Brendan Grace
I have a fear of heights that borders on mania.
Sylvester Stallone
I did Star 80, which was a magnificent experience as well, but still, I was at the height of my career at the beginning. Then I had to jump down the ladder and climb back up again, which I didn’t understand. That was very hard.
Mariel Hemingway
For folks in Washington to believe that they are smart enough to pick the next energy technology is, in my judgment, the height of arrogance. For me or any of my peers to pick energy-technology X as the solution to solving America’s energy problems is just a fool’s errand.
Mike Pompeo
I’m not afraid of heights, but the idea of falling from them, well, that I’m afraid of.
Laurell K. Hamilton
Enthusiasm is the height of man; it is the passing from the human to the divine.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
My mom used to be a basketball player so I was really into it. Plus of course my height made it easier for me to decide what kind of sport I wanted to play, so at the age of nine I went to my first basketball practice.
Zaza Pachulia
A good scientist values criticism almost higher than friendship: no, in science criticism is the height and measure of friendship.
Francis Crick
People tend to assume I was terribly self-conscious about my height. In fact, I’ve always been perfectly comfortable with the way I am. And if anyone gave me any stick, they soon found I was quite capable of giving it back.
Peter Crouch
Teamwork is so important that it is virtually impossible for you to reach the heights of your capabilities or make the money that you want without becoming very good at it.
Brian Tracy
My directors feel that, because of my height, I look better in action sequences.
Varun Tej
Hair is also a problem. I remember once, when I was reporting from Beirut at the height of the civil war, someone wrote in to the BBC complaining about my appearance.
Kate Adie
Height is a funny thing in tennis because it definitely helps the serve, but it can hinder agility and movement. I think I have to spend a lot more time working on movement and flexibility than some of my shorter colleagues.
Kevin Anderson
I really pulled from that repertoire that Billie Holiday was singing, and the way she sang it. It’s sort of this beautiful, not really midpoint, but a period of her career where she really still had her voice. She had that deep wisdom that we’ve come to associate her with. To me, that’s her at the height of her powers.
Jose James
