I don’t think it’s too late for ‘The War of the Worlds’ to come true. I’m talking about it from the standpoint that which you need to have and own things – to breed, to think, to create – is going on everywhere, not just on this planet or in the space around it.

Do you know anything about silent films?” “Sure,” I said. “The first ones were developed in the late nineteenth century and sometimes had live musical accompaniment, though it wasn’t until the 1920s that sound became truly incorporated into films, eventually making silent ones obsolete in cinema.
Richelle Mead
I’m not good-looking. I used to be, but not anymore. Not like Robert Taylor. What I have got is I have character in my face. It’s taken an awful lot of late nights and drinking to put it there. When I go to work in a picture, I say, ‘Don’t take the lines out of my face. Leave them there.’
Humphrey Bogart

There has fallen a splendid tear
From the passion-flower at the gate.
She is coming, my dove, my dear;
She is coming, my life, my fate;

And the white rose weeps, “She is late;”
The larkspur listens, “I hear; I hear;”
And the lily whispers, “I wait.”

Javier Bardem
Life is insanely robust, though we can make species go extinct, and this is the bad thing. So I always make the point that you can’t say, ‘Is it too late?’ That is the terrible question, because either answer promotes inaction. If it’s too late, you don’t need to act; if it’s not too late, you don’t need to act.
Kim Stanley

In ‘George Lopez’, I played Veronica who’s a bratty 18-year-old, and so I feel like it’s much easier for me to play that because I feel like a late bloomer. It wasn’t difficult or challenging at all because it’s not like I haven’t been a teenager.
Aimee Garcia
The two girls disappeared into the stern cabin once more. Will watched them go, then asked Halt, ‘Anything you’d like me to do? Grow a beard?

It wasn’t until my late twenties that I learned that by working out I had given myself a great gift. I learned that nothing good comes without work and a certain amount of pain.

Henry Rollins
I was always a tomboy as a kid. I always had boyfriends. I was just a regular girl growing up in the late ’50s and early ’60s, but I was never really attracted to what the girls were attracted to: makeup, my appearance, homemaking.

Elizabeth Jane Howard
Let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late.
Bob Dylan
Theres a tremendous amount of work building the apparatus, getting the experiment to work. But sitting there late at night in the lab, and knowing light is going at bicycle speed, and that nobody in the history of mankind has ever been here before – that is mind-boggling. Its worth everything.
I felt that, in retrospect, there was a time in the late Seventies, after I had a string of hits and successes, as a performer and a recording artist, that I wasn’t saying anything.
Boz Scaggs

Steve Jobs
Let none think to fly the danger for soon or late love is his own avenger.
Lord Byron
The pieces that have survived, the ones that we all love, were not all popular in their time. Just look at Beethoven’s late string quartets. The music that the musical community selects, however, is usually the very best.
David Finckel
I’m normally late, so I just kind of throw on the sort of thing that’s at hand.

I’ll play with certain elements, but I don’t really think about it too much.
Daphne Guinness
Well, I’ve liked Star Wars since the late ’70s. I liked it a lot.

Mike Royer
When I was in my late 30s, I lit a figure on fire on Baker Beach in San Francisco. It was me, a friend, and maybe eight people, tops. There wasn’t any premeditation to it at all. It was really just a product of San Franciscan bohemian milieu.

Muriel Barbery
I have to say that some philosophers such as the late Bernard Williams, and I would include myself in this group, would say that tranquillity is overrated as the goal of life.
Catherine Wilson
The white man is our mortal enemy, and we cannot accept him. I will fight to see that vicious beast go down into the lake of fire prepared for him from the beginning, that he never rise again to give any innocent black man, woman or child the hell that he has delighted in pouring on us for 400 years.
Louis Farrakhan
Mortality means you don’t have forever to work things out. You can live your life unexamined but then on the last day you’re going to think: ‘I’ve left things a little late.’
Mitch Albom
Gone are the days when you’d have to tune in to a mad illegal radio station late at night to be able to hear the rapper of your choice. That’s all changed now. That’s all gone out of the window. And I feel like I represent that change. I represent the era of iPods and Shuffle and things like that.
Tinie Tempah

Alice Cooper
God has the tough end of the deal. What if instead of planting the seed you had to make the tree? That would keep you up late at night, trying to figure that one out.
Jim Rohn
I’ve done that I was touring a couple of years ago with R. Kelly and the Lillith Fair, I would do the late night underground gigs as well because it’s always around those times that there was a hot song, either on the radio or in the clubs, it would just be simultaneous.
Deborah Cox
Or is there no such thing as ‘too late’? Is there only ‘late’ and is ‘late’ always better than ‘never’? I don’t know.
Bernhard Schlink
I don’t think that a Singularity would be visible to those going through one. Even the most disruptive changes are not universally or immediately distributed, and late followers learn from the reactions and dilemmas of those who had initially encountered the disruptive change.

I never knew what top golf was like until I turned professional. Then it was too late.
Steve Melnyk
When I joined Ford, in the late 1970s, I felt strongly we could not forever be a huge user of natural resources without there being consequences. But I was alone in my thinking in those days.

Noel Gallagher
Hurry, conscious younger people! Get to power quickly so political decisions can be based on the greater good for all rather than the greater gain for few. Hurry, before it is too late!
Jane Siberry
There’s no such thing as too late. There are different roles for different ages, assuming an actress has something to offer. There aren’t many Helen Mirrens and Meryl Steeps, and it takes a lot of talent to get to that level. I hope I have it. That’s the model I aspire to if I’m lucky enough. It’s all about luck.
Ayelet Zurer
I’ve never been a junkie, and never will be. I just like going out late to clubs with friends and listening to music. Always have done. It’s not that unusual for girls of 26.

Debbi Fields
The Church in the United States turned a corner about three decades ago, and the idea that we’re going back to the incoherence of the late Sixties and Seventies is, frankly, silly. Let’s have a little faith in what the Holy Spirit has done among us these past 35 years.
George Weigel
Even though this is late in an election year, there is no way we can go forward except together and no way anybody can win except by serving the people’s urgent needs. We cannot stand still or slip backwards. We must go forward now together.
Gerald R. Ford
I loved her and I loved no one else and we had a lovely magic time while we were alone. I worked well and we made great trips, and I thought we were invulnerable again, and it wasn’t until we were out of the mountains in late spring, and back in Paris, that the other thing started again.
Ernest Hemingway
It’s really hard to imagine there ever being the kind of impact there was when punk rock happened in the late 70’s. I wish there would be one big change like that again, but I don’t know if that’ll ever happen.
Penelope Spheeris
Although I am a young leader, I actually came to it strangely quite late. I have a different perspective, partly because of my family, partly because of what I did for ten years: negotiating trade deals, working out in Central Asia doing assistance projects.
Nick Clegg
I like the Stooges. You know what movie I saw that I sort of discovered late was Jerry Lewis in ‘The Nutty Professor’. I really liked that.
Mike Judge
I’ve always been a late bloomer. My body developed late. From ninth to 10th grade, I grew like 3 inches. Just kind of stretched out. I was like 6-1, grew to 6-4 in 10th grade.
Paul Pierce
What did you do to Amma?” “I was late to school.” He studied my face. I studied his. “Number 2?” I nodded. “Sharp?” “Started out sharp and then she sharpened it.
Kami Garcia
For years, I meant to read ‘Arabian Sands’, Wilfred Thesiger’s account of two punishing camel journeys during the late 1940s across Southern Arabia’s Empty Quarter. Now that I have, I can sheepishly join the chorus of those who revere the book as one of the half dozen greatest works of modern English travel writing.
Michael Dirda
Once when I went over my work with my Washington University professor, the late great Stanley Elkin, he pointed to a passage of mine and said: Stop vamping. It has remained a caution.

Johnny Mercer
Regardless, I did rise to the editorship before embarking on a freelance career in the late ’60’s.
Brock Yates

A. N. Wilson
Drinking makes uninteresting people matter less and late at night, matter not at all.
Lillian Hellman
Yes, it was too late, and Sabina knew she would leave Paris, move on, and on again, because were she to die here they would cover her up with a stone, and in the mind of a woman for whom no place is home the thought of an end to all flight is unbearable.
Milan Kundera
I really got into the cricket and staying up late watching the World Cup.
Jeremy London
Too late, he recalled Miles’s dictum that the reward for a job well done was usually a harder job.
Lois McMaster Bujold
I played baseball, and that’s pretty much it. Basketball came late, this was, basketball was the sport that I tried to master, I kind of mastered baseball, so basketball was one of those things where I wanted to master this game, so that’s why I probably play it the way I do.
Eric Williams
Sorry we’re late,” Jason said. “Is this the guy who needs killing?
Rick Riordan
Regrets are the most useless form of guilt. They always arrive too late to do any good.

S. J. Perelman
Unused to the situations in which I find myself, and embarassed by the slightest difficulties, I seldom discover, till too late, how I ought to act.
Fanny Burney
Bread has been made (indifferent) from potatoes;
And galvanism has set some corpses grinning,
But has not answer’d like the apparatus
Of the Humane Society’s beginning,
By which men are unsuffocated gratis:
What wondrous new machines have late been spinning.
Lord Byron
I had done quite a bit of research about math education when I spoke before Congress in 2000 about the importance of women in mathematics. The session of Congress was all about raising more scholarships for girls in college. I told them I felt that it’s too late by college.
Danica McKellar
You’re funny, and you’re smart, and you may show up late, but you always show up eventually.
John Green
While nature thus very early and very abundantly feeds us, she is very late in tutoring us as to the proper methodization of our diet.
Herman Melville
It is never too late to correct our mistakes. And if we do not, we risk repeating them.
Lisa Madigan
I can be in the NFL as long as any other back. I went late in the draft because no one thought I could do it.
Brandon Jacobs
Get enough exercise and sleep: Sounds trivial, but it’s not. You may have the urge to work 24/7, to skip the gym and to stay up late to get a few more things done. That’s short-sighted. Exercise and sleep are critical to having the physical and mental energy necessary to meet a challenge.
Gretchen Rubin
I was a little late in the game for Twitter and Facebook and everything because I thought, ‘Oh, I don’t know. I just don’t have time.’
Stacy Keibler
It’s never too late-in fiction or in life-to revise.
Nancy Thayer
Whether it was work, marriage, or family, I’ve always been a late bloomer.
Sigourney Weaver
Sloth makes all things difficult, but industry all easy; and he that riseth late must trot all day, and shall scarce overtake his business at night; while laziness travels so slowly, that poverty soon overtakes him.
Benjamin Franklin
The book the Ziff folks sent me as an example of their art was ‘Late Night VRML 2.0 with Java,’ 700 pages + CD-ROM, published February 1997. I was personally acquainted with more movie stars than people who might conceivably have wanted to buy this book or any book like it.
Philip Greenspun
I’m not planning on singing too late. Maybe another eight or 10 years is enough before I retire. It would also be great to revisit all these stunning places around the world where I have toured.
Sharon Jones
Good Lord, I thought, squinting at the bright glare of a late-July morning. No wonder I slept through this. It was noisy with shrieking birds, and already hot.
Kim Harrison
Adding manpower to a late software project makes it later.
Fred Brooks
Climate change is the environmental challenge of this generation, and it is imperative that we act before it’s too late.
John Delaney
I shrugged. “I guess that guys who’d never do something like that have a hard time believing some other guy would,” I said, but I could see her point. Awareness and apologies were fine and good, but they could come too late.
Tammara Webber
Newspaper people, once celebrated as founts of ribald humor and uncouth fun, have of late lost all their gaiety, and small wonder.
Russell Baker
The hope of the future lies not in curbing the influence of human occupancy – it is already too late for that – but in creating a better understanding of the extent of that influence and a new ethic for its governance.
Aldo Leopold
I think that the U.S. does have this very much more open attitude, and I admire it very much and I think it’s very important to the world. But the information and the discussion sometimes come too late, after the effective decision has been made.
E. P. Thompson
I loved sitting on my veranda sipping quality scotch, puffing a Cuban cigar and watching Cuba on the horizon, or the oceanic vista. Did this late in the evenings many times.
Dirk Benedict
The season starts too early and finishes too late and there are too many games in between.
Bill Veeck
The redefined M.D. is able to access the still, small voice that says I’m about to make a mistake – or I’ve just made one and I need to undo it before it’s too late.
Brian Goldman
I sipped my own coffee, heavy on the sugar and cream, trying to make up for the late work the night before. Caffeine and sugar, the two basic food groups.
Laurell K. Hamilton
If I have to write on an airplane or get up early to write or write late, you just gotta sit down. When you have the time, you have to be able to do it.
Noah Hawley
Say it to them. Or say it to yourself in the mirror. Say it in a letter you’ll never send or in a book millions might read someday. I think you deserve to look back on your life without a chorus of resounding voices saying ‘I could’ve, but it’s too late now.’
Taylor Swift
I’ve been showing up late and dirty all my life.
Jase Robertson
When I was in my late teens, a couple of friends passed away suddenly. This was quite distressing, but after a while, as tends to happen when one is once or twice removed from grief, I stopped thinking about them all the time.
Ayobami Adebayo
My mom was always late. It drove me crazy as a child. So I’m always on time – or early.
Jodie Foster
By the time there is a case study about your industry, you are already too late.
Seth Godin
My horse was so late getting home, he tiptoed into the stable.
Henny Youngman
To many fame comes too late.
Luis de Camoes
I was very fortunate to have known Fred Ross Sr., who was organizing the Community Service Organization (CSO) way back in the late 50’s and early 60’s. I was able to work with him.
Dolores Huerta
Feeling attractive didn’t come until I was 29… What is it about a woman being in her late 30s that brings out the “Oh, my gosh, are you worried?” questions? Worried? What about? Thirty-eight, 39, 40, 50! Great! Still alive!
Kate Beckinsale
I’ve been quite a late developer on the clothes front, but I’ve suddenly realised it is one of life’s joys.
Benedict Cumberbatch
It’s never too late to make the right decision in your life. I want fathers to go grab their sons, tell them you love them and be more involved in their lives.
Cory Hardrict
I am very glad, Anderson, that secretary Clinton discovered religion on this issue but it’s a little bit too late. Secretary Clinton supported virtually every one of the disastrous trade agreements written by corporate America.
Bernie Sanders
When opportunity comes it is too late to prepare.
John Wooden
It’s an unfortunate situation. After such a great play I felt like I got hit late, no flag, broke my hand. That’s it. That’s pretty much been the story for the past three weeks, and obviously at some point something catastrophic was going to happen, and I broke my hand.
Michael Vick
Persistence is important in every endeavor. Whether it’s finishing your homework, completing school, working late to finish a project, or “finishing the drill” in sports, winners persist to the point of sacrifice in order to achieve their goals.
Leon F. “Lee” Ellis
I’m not going to buy my kids an encyclopedia. Let them walk to school like I did.
Yogi Berra
Atheism, the absence of belief in gods, is a comparatively late phenomenon in history.
Chapman Cohen
Even my going back to school was to inspire young people that it’s never too late to education. That’s all I can do, and try to be the best father and husband that I can be.
Mark Wahlberg
A wizard is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to.
J. R. R. Tolkien
I’m just as normal as anybody else. I’m just probably in the same place as many people in their mid to late twenties are.
Tristan Prettyman
Experimenters don’t come in late—they never went home.
Leon M. Lederman
I grew up playing guitar in the late Nineties, early 2000s, so a very acoustic-driven pop-rock era, and then in college, I started listening to Jason Isbell and Kacey Musgraves. Then I really fell in love when I discovered really old country, like June Carter Cash – one of my all-time favorites.
Trixie Mattel
Sometimes you are in sync with the times, sometimes you are in advance, sometimes you are late.
Bernardo Bertolucci
Our society loves to romanticize the idea of the single, solo inventor who, working late in the lab one night, makes an earthshaking discovery, and voila, overnight everything’s changed. That’s a very appealing picture; however, it’s just not true. Medicine today is a team sport.
Nguyen Quyen
Global warming is real and human activity is the main cause. The consequences are mainly negative and headed toward catastrophic, unless we act. However, the good news is that we can meet this challenge. It is not too late, and we have everything we need to get started.
Al Gore
I don’t skip practice, I’m not late for meetings, I’m professional in everything I do, you never hear about me not showing up for planes and missing flights, so why is it that I’m always being labeled a bad guy?
Jeff Cunningham
The Bible says today is the accepted time, today is the day of salvation… But there will come a time when it will be too late for you.
Billy Graham
Did you bring me a hamburger? Did I-No,Myrnin,I didn’t bring you a hamburger.Bizarre.He’d never asked for that before. Coffee? It’s late. Doughnuts? No. What good are you then?
Rachel Caine
You better wake up before it’s too late, or they’ll be doing your makeup down at the coroner’s place.
Kool Moe Dee
Don’t wait until there is tragedy in your life. Don’t wait until you lose somebody. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Appreciate the beautiful people that you have in your life now.
Katie Piper
As long as you live, it is never too late to make amends. Take my advice, child. Don’t waste your precious life with regrets and sorrow. Find a way to make right what was wrong, and then move on.
Karen Hesse
The more visible signs of protest are gone, but I think there is a realization that the tactics of the late sixties are not sufficient to meet the challenges of the seventies.
Coretta Scott King
Running a boat isn’t that hard. Just takes doing. Most or all women I ever knew were discouraged from running boats, but it was too late with me.
Diane Wilson
Well I’m a-gonna raise a fuss, I’m gonna raise a holler
About workin’ all summer just to try an’ earn a dollar
Everytime I call my baby, to try to get a date
My boss says, no dice, son, you gotta work late
Sometimes I wonder what I’m gonna do
’cause there ain’t no cure for the summertime blues.
Eddie Cochran
In the late 60s, 70s and possibly early 80s, social scientists were interested in researching the diffusion of innovation and studying the link between applied research and policy and program development. Recently there has been less interest in these issues and we feel that this interest must be rekindled.
Ruth Simmons
I wrote ‘White Teeth’ in the late nineties. I didn’t really feel trepidatious about it. It was a different time.
Zadie Smith
Never be late. When you’re late, what you’re saying is that your time is more important than the other person’s time. That’s pretty egotistical.
Alice Cooper
Late payments also hurt your FICO score. And never, ever take out a cash advance on your credit card.
Suze Orman
I used to say the evening that I developed the first x-ray photograph I took of insulin in 1935 was the most exciting moment of my life. But the Saturday afternoon in late July 1969, when we realized that the insulin electron density map was interpretable, runs that moment very close.
Dorothy Hodgkin
Our album ‘Show No Mercy’ came out in late ’83, and we did three or four shows in San Francisco after the release. That was our first experience with stage-divers, crowd-surfing, people walking on people across an entire crowd.
Tom Araya
My mom worked late, and I was at home a lot by myself. It was good for my imagination – and bad for it, too.
Sarah Paulson
It is never too late to give up our prejudices.
Henry David Thoreau
I do not regard the Keynesian revolution as a great intellectual triumph. On the contrary, it was a tragedy because it came so late. Hitler had already found out how to cure unemployment before Keynes had finished explaining why it occured.
Joan Robinson
My goal was to become the best dancer in the world and, because I started late, I always had this feeling I was playing catch-up, so I’ve been a bit of a maniac most of my life, sort of striving.
Anton du Beke
Sometimes we don’t realize how destructive our creations are until it’s too late. And sometimes those creations we make turn on us and seek only to kill us even though we loved and succored them. (Apollo)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
I’m a late bloomer, so I’m going to embrace it all.
Paula Pell
If the UCLA teams of the late 1960s and early 1970s were subjected to the kind of scrutiny (other schools) have been, UCLA would probably have to forfeit about eight national championships and be on probation for the next 100 years.
Bill Walton
The warming we’ve experienced in the late 20th century could just as easily be explained by small decreases in cloud cover – natural changes in the system – and have nothing to do with CO2.
Willie Soon
Country and western is the music of the devil. Thats the real truth of the matter. My late Mother, bless her, loved country and western. God, I couldnt handle it.
Rick Wakeman
I’m home. I hope the Manchester United fans forgive me for being late.
Robin van Persie
I tend to stay up late, not because I’m partying but because it’s the only time of the day when I’m alone and don’t have to be on, performing.
Jim Carrey
Everything is so fresh in WWE, it’s hard to take it all in sometimes. I get moments when I’m riding the road late at night, and I get to reflect on my thoughts a little bit.
Braun Strowman
… in this impersonal world of the nine-digit zip code, credit cards, and numbered bank accounts, in this world of no marriage, late marriage, and remarriage, the operative word in office relationships is ‘family.
Lois Wyse
Diogenes said once to a person who was showing him a dial, “It is a very useful thing to save a man from being too late for supper.
Diogenes Laertius
Life punishes those who come too late.
Mikhail Gorbachev
Uh, excuse me, sir, I, uh, don’t known how to uh, to uh, tell you this, but you were three minutes late. The schedule is a little, uh, bit off.” He grinned sheepishly. “That’s ridiculous!” murmured the Ticktockman behind his mask. “Check your watch.” And then he went into his office, going mrmee, mrmee, mrmee, mrmee.
Harlan Ellison
I beg Osama to stop warring. He is a Muslim, and Islam means peace. Nobody wins in a war… I wish I were tapped in the problem about Iraq. I knew Saddam enough that I could have talked him into surrendering. But it’s too late.
Imelda Marcos
I grew up watching and learning from the ultimate partnership, and that is of my father and late uncle.
Jonathan Tisch
Musically, swing pretty much dominated in the ’30s. And into the late ’30s, swing is beginning to change over to bebop in the early ’40s, which is exactly when this new science of theoretical physics, particularly theoretical atomic physics, was really coming to the fore.
Chris Eigeman
The books that I wrote in my late teens and 20s, the little love stories, they were right from the heart.
Ruskin Bond
I didn’t mind being in school. But I was usually uninspired and always late. I did what I had to, but not more.
It’s better to have a good player with the basketball in late game situations than to have plays.
Rick Pitino
My work since the late ’80s specifically questioned what was presented as the “natural” order of things in the history of post war NY painting.
Deborah Kass
Too late. It’s hatched.
Christopher Paolini
And now too late, we see these things are one:
The art is sacrifice and self-control
And who loves beauty must be stern of soul.
Alice Duer Miller
Don’t put things off till it’s too late. You are the DJ of your fate.
Vikram Seth
Everyone has the power to impact the outcome of his life. The way to do it is to focus on today. . . It is too late for yesterday. And you can’t depend on tomorrow.
John C. Maxwell
The fact is always obvious much too late, but the most singular difference between happiness and joy is that happiness is a solid and joy a liquid.
J. D. Salinger
When we get in late and the only thing open is fast food, it can be tough to maintain a healthy diet.
Mike Trout
Tomorrow will be too late, it’s now or never.
Elvis Presley
Its never to late to get back on your feet though we wont live forever make sure you accomplish what you were put here for
Abigail Adams
Michael O’Sullivan was my great friend. But I don’t ever remember telling him that. The words that are spoken at a funeral are spoken too late for the man who is dead.
Ian Bannen
My brother Barry was into all sports, and so was my late father. For me, hockey was the one sport I loved and played. I didn’t really pay much attention to the other sports.
Adam F. Goldberg
The most compelling confirmation of Marx’s theory of history is late capitalist society. There is a sense in which this case is becoming truer as time passes.
Terry Eagleton
It’s never too late – in fiction or in life – to revise.
Nancy Thayer
The West is anxious about becoming another Africa, and it has dug deep moats in the hopes of preventing that, but it’s too late: it has already become another Africa.
Andre Naffis-Sahely
And that format was – we’d been using that format, I guess, since the late ’70s, and it was starting to get very predictable. In other words, certain songs would surface in the same points in the set every so often; it was like rotation.
Phil Lesh
And that was always my father’s favorite part about shooting as well. Often my dad would shoot very, very late, he was quite a workaholic, they would do 20, 20-hour shoots and stuff like that.
Brian Henson
In the late ’60s, there were the the three B’s: The Beatles, Batman, and Bond.
Adam West
So what really works? Treatments in jail do some good, but it’s mostly too late: finding a family and a job or just growing older make most prisoners eventually give up crime.
Polly Toynbee
If you learn late, you pass it on to people so they can learn early. It’s a step process.
Russell Simmons
I’m convinced of this: Good done anywhere is good done everywhere. For a change, start by speaking to people rather than walking by them like they’re stones that don’t matter. As long as you’re breathing, it’s never too late to do some good.
Maya Angelou
One starts to get young at the age of sixty and then it is too late.
Pablo Picasso
It was too vast a problem to be just a personal thing. There should be some help, someone should tell them before it was too late. Someone should tell their side of the story, and maybe people would understand then, and wouldn’t be so quick to judge a boy by the amount of hair oil he wore.
S. E. Hinton
Death seems to have been a rather late invention in evolution. One can go a long way in evolution before encountering an authentic corpse.
George Wald
The best thing about lying in bed late is that you learn to distinguish between first things and trivia, for whatever presses on you has to prove its importance before it makes you move.
Max Lerner
When you paint late at night, drinking beer or wine or both, you gotta be very careful to watch what you are doing.
Hiroko Sakai
If you are trying to get from here to there, and you already are late, you know that you are late, and yet you are aligned with the present moment while you are stuck in a traffic jam. You are totally accepting of the moment.
Eckhart Tolle
By the late twentieth century, our time, a mythic time, we are all chimeras, theorized and fabricated hybrids of machine and organism; in short, we are cyborgs.
Donna J. Haraway
I hate it in friends when they come too late to help.
It was cycling that got me off drugs. I’d get on my bike very early in the morning and keep cycling until very late at night, day after day, until it was out of the system.
Shaun Ryder
I start work around 8 a.m. and usually finish around noon. If there’s more to do, I do it in the late afternoon, although that isn’t prime time for me.
Stephen King
I came to water late. I learned to swim at the age of 20.
Liam Neeson
The halls were empty. Charlotte had missed the first bell and would be late, again. Her homeroom teacher would ask her for an excuse and she would say, ‘Overwhelming feeling of dread.’ That was going to go over nicely.
Anne Ursu
Quite frequently, he who goes too fast gets there too late – or not at all.
Zig Ziglar
I’m in the process of brainstorming with my marketing team and all that stuff, trying to come up with a concept for a late-night restaurant for people in Birmingham.
Ruben Studdard
I’m always a bit late, but I don’t mind that, because it means that whoever I’m meeting is already there.
Sarah Millican
Cell phones were more popular in Cambodia and Uganda because they didn’t have phones. We had phones in this country, and we were very late to the table. They’re going to adopt e-books much faster than we do.
Nicholas Negroponte
It is hard to imagine the World Series being held in the sweet hazy sunshine of late September rather than the sour night air of late October, but that is precisely what has transpired in baseball over the past 50 years, a deterioration from light to darkness.
George Vecsey
We’re bigger now than we were in the late 70s when we were peaking.
Ace Frehley
Susan, an only child who never had any roots, and I, a lone wolf who got married 20 years to late, were adopted by the kids as much as they were by us.
Harpo Marx
Mendanbar took a deep breath. You could stay here. At the castle, I mean. With me. This wasn’t coming out at all the way he had wanted it to, but it was too late to stop now. He hurried on, As Queen of the Enchanted Forest, if you think you would like that. I would.
Patricia C. Wrede
My law school class in the late 1950s numbered over 500. That class included less than 10 women.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
It is never too late to be who you want to be.
George Eliot
Do what you want, if it is something you did regret the next day, sleep in late.
Wiz Khalifa
Better three hours too soon, than one hour to late.
William Shakespeare
The path you take is up to you. Make good choices, dream BIG, it is never too late.
Chris Herren
The year 1999, seventh month, from the sky will come a great King of Terror: to bring back to life the great King of the Mongols, before and after Mars to reign by good luck.
I worked hard. I worked late. I went in early. I did everything I could to gain an advantage.
Joe Theismann
Courage, my friends; ’tis not too late to build a better world.
Tommy Douglas
If you defer investing your time and energy until you see that you need to, chances are it will already be too late.
Clayton Christensen
It’s really not so good to have time. Rush, scramble, desperation, this missed, that left behind, those others too big to fit into such a small space–that’s the way life was meant to be. You’re supposed to be too late for some things. Don’t worry about it.
Peter S. Beagle
Don’t ever rope me in as a late-night talk show host. I don’t want to be one.
Craig Ferguson
Being as versatile as I am, I take offense to the notion that no serious musician would not be doing a late night talk show gig. One has to be open enough in other areas to be able to contribute to a show like this.
Kevin Eubanks
Tony Bennett is still giving concerts, still singing. It’s keeping him alive. He’s in his late 80s now and he keeps going and going. I maintain, God bless him, it’s this devotion to duty and working and being in front his audience.
Frank Sinatra, Jr.
When I was late for shoots and press meets, my films did well.
I realized how for all of us who came of age in the late sixties and early seventies the war was a defining experience. You went o r you didn’t, but the fact of it and the decisions it forced us to make marked us for the rest of our lives, just as the depression and World War II had marked my parents.
Linda Grant
I was a right winger into the 70s but I left the right in late 70s.
Tom Metzger
That it should still be necessary, at this late stage in the senility of the human race to argue that women have a fine and fluent intelligence is surely an eloquent proof of the defective observation, incurable prejudice, and general imbecility of their lords and masters.
H. L. Mencken
I’m not a poet, but I was in the poetry program. And I’m also not much of a nonfiction writer, at least not in the standard sense of nonfiction, nor especially in the way we were thinking about nonfiction back then, in the late 90s.
John D’Agata
The men who were running the church in the late ’60s and ’70s panicked when they saw the chaos, which developed after the council. The relatively modest changes of those years thawed the ice in which Catholicism had been frozen since the French Revolution.
Andrew Greeley
There is a fatality about good resolutions – that they are always made too late
Oscar Wilde
Nightmares have become my dreams. I’m late for my date with destiny. I’m on my path.
A time when it is far too early to arise, but so late that going to bed makes small sense.
Robin Hobb
God is never late, but rarely early.
Mother Teresa
The effect hip-hop had on me was enormous. I was exposed to it by happenstance. My father worked at a radio station in New York called WKTU Disco 92. It was the first radio station in New York City to play disco in the late ’70s.
Michael Rapaport
And about in the late ’80s, I got kind of burned out a little bit.
Lee Majors
If you wait for customers to tell you that you need to do something, you’re too late. Good business leaders should be half a step ahead of what customers want, i.e. they don’t actually quite know they want it. That’s what innovation’s about. With Plan A, we didn’t wait for the consumers to tell us.
Stuart Rose
When a hunger pain happens, that’s your bodies way of saying it’s too late, you’re a fat storing machine now. The key and all trainers know the secret is that you should always take portable snacks with you and try to feed yourself every couple of hours.
Jackie Warner
It’s too late,” she said. “Don’t say that.” His voice was half a whisper. “I love you, Tessa. I love you.
Cassandra Clare
It is true that my parents were worried because I began to speak fairly late, so that they even consulted a doctor. I can’t say how old I was – but surely not less than three.
Albert Einstein
Soon or late, every dog’s master’s memory becomes a graveyard; peopled by wistful little furry ghosts that creep back unbidden, at times, to a semblance of their olden lives.
Albert Payson Terhune
The future is now. It’s time to grow up and be strong. Tomorrow may well be too late.
Neil LaBute
I work hard, I work late, I have nothing on my conscience. When I go to bed, I sleep.
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
When I first started drinking, everybody was doing it. That was before they discovered marijuana and all that. It was the late 50s, early 60s – it was the beginnings of the rock ‘n’ roll era. The main drink was like wine. And even that was a romantic throwback to something.
Van Morrison
When I was in college in the late 80s-early 90s, there was a sense that history was on a straight path toward democracy everywhere. Well, that’s not true. It was also not true that there’s a single era of oligarchy, because we showed we could do something about it.
Zephyr Teachout
China reformed its state sector before, in the late 1990s. Tens of millions were laid off at the time. That was scary and we had warnings of social unrest. But it did not happen. Instead, there was a restructuring in our economic system. I am not sure if China will follow a Western playbook in this respect.
Zhang Xin
Think about it – what’s the first thing you do when waiting for someone who’s late? Grab your smartphone and do something with it …anything with it – so that you don’t look like a loser. However by doing so we’ve lost our ability to be present – to observe, to connect with others and most importantly to be bored.
Martin Lindstrom
I work late at night. I’m awake and nobody bothers me. It’s quiet and things come and talk to me in the silence.
Diana Gabaldon
We are often too late with our brilliance. We are on time delay. The only instant gratification comes in the form of potato chips. The rest will find us by surprise somewhere down the road maybe as we sleep and dream of other things.
Richard Schiff
The easy glamour of the French Riviera in the late 1960s – inspired by Romy Schneider’s character in La Piscine – mixed with garden elements. Blueprint, botanical, lattice, Queen Anne’s lace and folly prints are paired with cleaner silhouettes and proportions in a fresh palette of green, white and coral.
Tory Burch
Victory comes late–
And is held low to freezing lips–
Too rapt with frost
To take it
Emily Dickinson
If [Donald] Trump wins narrowly, Democrats can blame the loss on FBI director James Comey, who inserted himself late in the campaign in an unprecedented way.
Mara Liasson
No, I think that if he had known he would be president, he would have started dying his hair, like, 10 years ago. Now it’s too late.
Michelle Obama
We expect to keep our writing sessions going until late spring, then to play some new material in a few secret club dates. The record will likely take a long time and may not surface until 1999!
Adrian Belew
I cannot work and listen to Wagner at the same time, nor Mahler, nor Beethoven’s late quartets. I enjoy listening to Chopin’s piano music when I work.
I. M. Pei
I hate when people don’t keep their word or they are late. Tardiness is a big pet peeve of mine.
Tim Hudson
If you wait until there is another case study in your industry, you will be too late!
Seth Godin
My mother always told me that no matter how late it is, you take your makeup off. Take it off!
Catherine Zeta-Jones
Very often we write down a sentence too early, then another too late; what we have to do is write it down at the proper time, otherwise it’s lost.
Thomas Bernhard
…in the end you are the only one who can make yourself happy. More important, …it is never too late to find out how to do it.
Ruth Reichl
I started in the late 70s, beginning of the 80s, and I think I started to sing and make music as a therapy for myself; I never planned to be an artist; sometimes when I think about it it’s crazy that I’m here, and I’m touring, and I’m doing what I’m doing.
Mari Boine
I discovered Los Angeles in the late ’90s. The city was not at its best at the time, but I fell for it right away. There is something almost haunted about it, a vibrant mythology I find rather inspiring.
Hedi Slimane
My parents, Santos and Lupe Padilla, immigrated separately from Mexico and met in Los Angeles in the late 1960s. It was love at first sight and the young couple decided to get married, apply for green cards, and start a family.
Alex Padilla
All precious things, discover’d late, To those that seek them issue forth, For love in sequel works with fate, And draws the veil from hidden worth.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
It is never too late to turn from the errors of our ways: He who repents of his sins is almost innocent.
Seneca the Younger
The long day wanes: the slow moon climbs: the deep Moans round with many voices. Come, my friends, Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
From my perspective of a guy in his late forties, its becoming more and more clear to me that the right thing to do and the wrong thing to do all depend on what part of life you are looking at it from.
Eric Bogosian
When your armour is on, it is too late to retreat.
It’s a little too late. I’m a little too gone. A little too tired of just hanging on.
Wiz Khalifa
Magic is the oldest part of the show business profession. It can now be used as a forward-thinking tool to build a child’s confidence. It has been an amazing part in many entertainers’ lives, including Steve Martin and the late Johnny Carson.
Criss Angel
Too late came I to love you, O Beauty both so ancient and so new! Too late came I to love you – and behold you were with me all the time . . .
Saint Augustine
This generation has come into the world fatally late for some enterprises. Go where we will on the surface of things, men have been there before us…. But the lives of men, though more extended laterally in their range, are still as shallow as ever.
Henry David Thoreau
If your watch is slow by just four minutes, that’s not much – unless you’ve been warned that if you’re even one minute late ever again you will be fired. Then four minutes make a big difference.
Zig Ziglar
I’m guessing that musicals didn’t make sense anymore because of the changes in the political environment that began in the late Sixties, an era of self-awareness and social revolutions.
Carmen Ejogo
Just do your job. Get in early. Stay late, and don’t complain. Fight the big fights.
Barbara Walters
It is too late in the century for women who have received the benefits of co-education in schools and colleges, and who bear theirfull share in the world’s work, not to care who make the laws, who expound and who administer them.
Judith Ellen Foster
Limit or eliminate late-night computer and television viewing. A computer or TV screen may seem much dimmer than a light bulb, but these screens often fill your field of vision, mimicking the effects of a room filled with light.
Andrew Weil
I am working never to be late again.
June Jordan
You’d be surprised how young 25-year-old girls can sound when they want to scream. It isn’t that young an audience, and it really frustrates me when I read the word “prepubescent” in my reviews. Even the ones that started following me with Wham! are in their late teens by now.
George Michael
It’s too late and it’s too bad, don’t think of me.
Dido Armstrong
The ideas of [ Le Corbusier ] that actually found their way into practice were deeply destructive – for instance, the tower-in-a-park, which mutated into the vertical slums of the late 20th century.
James Howard Kunstler
I wore a coat and tie all through high school: my way of being rebellious in the late 1950s.
Vint Cerf
This grieved me heartily ; and now I saw, though too late, the folly of beginning a work before we count the cost, and before we judge rightly of our own strength to go through with it.
Daniel Defoe
I wish I’d known early what I had to learn late.
Richie Ashburn
I’ve often wondered about people that come to the profession late in life. I’ve wanted to be an actor since the first grade. I watched a play being performed by the third grade class, and it was… magic.
William Christopher
Then there was a man who said, ‘I never knew what real happiness was until I got married; by then it was too late’
Oscar Wilde
The gladiator is formulating his plan in the arena or essentially Too late.
Seneca the Younger
Even when I illustrate multiple articles on the same person, the focus of the pieces are never the same, so I automatically get to reflect different ideas. But it doesn’t mean that it’s not a painful process. There are some really late nights.
Noma Bar
I never knew a man come to greatness or eminence who lay abed late in the morning.
Jonathan Swift
People who’ve written about Abraham Lincoln’s writing emphasize how logical he was. His writing was a syllogistic tool. He would say, if A, then B, and he would reason through it. His late writing especially is so tight and so beautifully reasoned.
George Saunders
Which form of proverb do you prefer Better late than never, or Better never than late?
Lewis Carroll
I have of late–but wherefore I know not–lost all my mirth,
forgone all custom of exercise.
William Shakespeare
Seldom, if ever, does wisdom come, shall we punish it if it comes late?
Learned Hand
It’s the worst feeling when you come home alone late at night and think the stranger sitting on your couch is a pile of clothes.
Dane Cook
I have a lot of pot tendencies. I’m always late, I laugh for no reason, I watch Jeopardy! with the sound off and make up my own questions.
Dave Attell
It is never too late to do right.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
That’s the story of life – when you start enjoying people, it’s always too late.
Marjane Satrapi
I was something of a late bloomer.
Ricky Whittle
No matter how much you screw up your own life by the wrong decisions that you make, it’s never too late to do the right thing and change your ways and you can teach old dogs new tricks.
Will Ferrell
I think we will make it. Because one quality people have – certainly Americans have it – is that they can adapt when they see necessity staring them in the face. What to avoid is what someone once called the definition of hell: truth realized too late.
E. O. Wilson
The importance of Plotinus is not only his own philosophical ideas which are quite interesting, but his historical impact as the founder of neo-Platonism which is the main philosophical tradition of late antiquity.
Peter Adamson
Gifts count for nothing; will alone is great; All things give way before it, soon or late.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
People always talk about how time flies; it’s become sort of a colloquialism now. You don’t really understand it until you reach your late 30s and early 40s – and I’m sure time will move even faster as I get older.
Ben Gibbard
If we are now holding late-night talk-show hosts to the same moral accountability as we hold politicians or clergymen, I’m out. I’m gone.
Craig Ferguson
I wouldn’t do really gratuitous nudity. When I was in my late teens, you’d read stuff and be like, ‘That character serves no purpose except being naked’, so that would not be something I’d want to do. It’s pointless for me.
Ruth Bradley
Routine is really important. However late you went to bed the night before, or however much you had to drink, get up at the same time each day and get on with it.
Mark-Anthony Turnage
When I was in my late teens I was already interested in philosophy.
Torbjorn Tannsjo
Carpe diem! Rejoice while you are alive; enjoy the day; live life to the fullest; make the most of what you have. It is later than you think.
Jessie Wallace was the first time I erupted. She was late, she was young. She’s not like that any more. I lost my temper. It was silly and I burst into tears and ran up to the producer. I said I had been terrible and amateur.
Barbara Windsor
I was late once and it cost me $50,000. I figure it was cheaper to wear two watches.
Chris Gardner
Because I wake up late, my day is often short. I’m much more active in the evenings, during which I alternately read, write, needle-point, smoke, email, and despair over my decision last June to put my television and DVD player out on the street because I wasn’t getting enough work done.
Cate Marvin
It’s never too late to take your heart health seriously and make it a priority.
Jennie Garth
Getting plastic surgery in your late 70’s, it’s kind of like painting your house as the fire approaches. Just die, there’s no shame in it.
Dana Gould
There is in God – some say – A deep, but dazzling darkness; as men here Say it is late and dusky, because they See not all clear. O for that Night! where I in Him Might live invisible and dim!
Henry Vaughan
My mom and pop took me to the Apollo Theater on my thirteenth birthday to see Heavy D and Keith Sweat. It was late at night, up on 125th Street, and it was crazy!
We changed again, and yet again, and it was now too late and too far to go back, and I went on. And the mists had all solemnly risen now, and the world lay spread before me.
Charles Dickens
It wasn’t until late in life that I discovered how easy it is to say, ‘I don’t know.’
W. Somerset Maugham
That night as I lay in bed, I thought of several things I could have said and mourned the fact that my wit usually bloomed late, peaking when it no longer mattered, during the solitary hours close to midnight.
Siri Hustvedt
I’m definitely nostalgic about the music of my youth; The Clash and Fishbone and that whole music scene. I still have all that music to this day. There was some great music going on in the late 70s and 80s.
John Cusack
To the ashes of the dead glory comes too late.
I’m really paying attention. People make up their minds late.
Carly Fiorina
I often write either really early in the morning, or really late at night.
Tracy Chapman
I feel my shows are like a late-night talk show that we settle down and do every night.
John Mayer
In some European theaters, it’s still not uncommon to have a late start and three LONG intermissions, because people actually eat and drink and converse during the intermissions.
Joe Bob Briggs
An ordinary day. I get up early, drive to the airport, from there driving to the arena where we wrestle. Then if we have a show I will take another plane for my destination. Otherwise I will take a plane to return home and fall in bed very, very late.
Chris Jericho
I happen to be quite fond of staying out late and sleeping the day away.
Rachel Nichols
Many die too late, and some die too early. Yet strangers soundeth the precept: “Die at the right time!”
Friedrich Nietzsche
I was a late bloomer. I’m not one of those girls who’s like, “I love my body! Hey, everybody, come look at my body!
Lizzy Caplan
And Barry Levinson is insanely funny. I don’t know if you know this, not everyone does, but he and Craig T. Nelson were a comedy team back in the coffeehouse days of the late ’60s.
Kevin Pollak
It is my heart that’s late,
it is my song that’s flown.
Stanley Kunitz
Occasionally I have come across a last patch of snow on top of a mountain in late May or June. There’s something very powerful about finding snow in summer.
Andy Goldsworthy
As I settled down to sleep in that new bed in the dark city, I saw that it was too late now, too late for everything. I would not be given a second chance. In the hours when I woke, I have to tell you that this struck me almost with relief.
Colm Toibin
I was one of the more talented ones at the design firm I joined, so I conducted my work pretty shrewdly. Except I wasn’t a morning person, so I was quite frequently late for work. On top of that, it was a fairly big company, they were fussy about the dress code, and I got chewed out quite often.
Akira Toriyama
I saw The Twilight Zone for the first time when I was 12 or 13. I used to stay up late to watch.
Charlie Brooker
The press and politicians. A delicate relationship. Too close, and danger ensues. Too far apart and democracy itself cannot function without the essential exchange of information. Creative leaks, a discreet lunch, interchange in the Lobby, the art of the unattributable telephone call, late at night.
Howard Brenton
Look at the Bethlehem birth. A king ordered a census. Joseph was forced to travel. Mary, as round as a ladybug, bounced on a donkey’s back. The hotel was full. The hour was late. The event was one big hassle. Yet, out of the hassle, hope was born. It still is.
Max Lucado
When I left I got an award for being the latest person in the history of the school. If you got three late marks for being over fifteen minutes late you’d get an after school detention. I got something like 257 marks. And I only lived about ten minutes away.
Matthew Bellamy
I don’t want to peak too early. The worry is that you never know until it’s all over whether you peaked at all – and then you’re finished and it’s too late.
Tom Courtenay
A bloody good thing, but too late.
Noel Coward
you are not too old and it is not too late to dive into your increasing depths where life calmly gives out it’s own secret
Rainer Maria Rilke
As children, we have vivid imaginations. We stay up late waiting for Santa Claus, dream of becoming president, and have ideas that defy physics. Then something happens. As we grow older, we start editing our imagination.
Brian Chesky
Like the measles, love is most dangerous when it comes late in life.
Lord Byron
Misogyny comes naturally to a young man in his late teens; it is a function of the powerful homosocial impulses that flower along Fraternity Row, that drove the mod movements of the middle sixties and late seventies, that lie at the heart of every rock band formed by men of that age.
Michael Chabon
I must secure more time for private devotions. I have been living far too public for me. The shortening of devotions starves the soul, it grows lean and faint. I have been keeping too late hours.
William Wilberforce
Redeemers always reach the world too late. God dies, we live; God lives, we die. Our fate.
Peter Porter
I’ve got a new studio set up very much based around live mixing and also mixing analogue and digital systems. Inspired by the late King Tubby and Scientist.
God is never in a hurry, but God is never late
Adrian Rogers
I am often late for planes. The airlines know me now, they call at home and ask, ‘How much later will you be today?
Gina Lollobrigida
Only very slowly and late have men come to realize that unless freedom is universal it is only extended privilege.
John Edward Christopher Hill
Maybe deep down inside we were all still in our formative years. Maybe it was never too late for any of us to change.
Claire Cook
Tyrants are always assassinated too late. That is their great excuse.
Emile M. Cioran
I always liked having a good time. I got into this business because I got fired from any job I ever had because I stayed out late playing music.
Jerry Jeff Walker
It’s too late for me to get married before I’m famous. You never know people’s intentions.
Carmelo Anthony
It’s much too late to save myself from falling.
Elton John
Finally, we need more Border Patrol agents. Although Congress has already tripled the number of Border Patrol agents since the late 1980s, more are still needed.
Ric Keller
There’s just something about that late ’80s that suddenly feels like it has something to teach us.
Brian K. Vaughan
I think it’s too late. I think that there’s been too much. This all started with the red line, walking away from it. The inability to arm the legitimate [Bashar] Assad opposition.
John Kasich
I remember driving to North Carolina when I was a little girl in a snowstorm to get down to my mom’s family in the Carolinas. There were chains on the car – it was the late sixties – and we were just singing in the car. Christmas carols.
Tori Amos
So begins a question which has of late become more and more urgent: what is the relation of aesthetics to politics?
Mark Poster
Most of the reasons for late-term abortions have to do with severe fetal deformities, but when I found out that dwarfism was also a reason for late-term abortions that was tough. I did a book on dwarfs and know a lot of them, and that was a shock. That’s a decision I could not feel comfortable with.
John H Richardson
I came back late last night at the Athlete’s Village so I’m a little bit surprised about my time this morning. It’s really good and I’m going to race tonight and tomorrow night so I’m excited to see what I can do.
Katerine Savard
I started when I was 8 years old, which is obviously nowadays pretty late, but I guess in my generation it was all right. I had plenty of other interests and I didn’t do only tennis.
Jana Novotna
Between the late 1950s and the late 1980s, more than 750 million tons of chemical wastes were discarded.
Sandra Steingraber
There were many influences on me while growing up. In the late Seventies and early Eighties when I was growing up in Hyderabad, it was a bit more laid-back, and that gave you time to think about things differently without perhaps being caught up in the narrow approach to one’s journey through life.
Satya Nadella
The judge should not be young, he should have learned to know evil, not from his own soul, but from late and long observation of the nature of evil in others.
I got to thinking—when it was too late—you have to reach out to people. To your family, too. You can’t just let them sit there, you should put your hand out. If they slap it back, well you reach out again if you care enough. If you don’t care enough, you forget about them, if you can.
Cynthia Voigt
I didn’t decide to become a musician until the age of 15, which is quite late.
Evelyn Glennie
I did not in late November start the plethora of linking my private life with public events again.
David Blunkett
The credit for much of this rightly belongs to the late Mayor Daley who forged a coalition of business and labor that kept Chicago always moving ahead.
Jane Byrne
There was a period of time when I was very political, when I was at the university. It was like the late ’60s, early ’70s and I was a dissident like everybody else I guess. Now I follow it but there’s nothing that really grabs me. The most fascinating thing to me right now is China.
Jessica Lange
The Thickety is a sinister, magical debut with a marvelous and shocking heroine. J.A. White’s elegant writing and masterful plot kept me turning pages late into the night.
Lisa McMann
I came to running late. It was something I had always wanted to do, but I always end up getting hurt. It didn’t occur to me that I could actually slow down and walk a little bit!
Veronica Webb
It will of course, be understood that directly or indirectly, soon or late, every advance in the sciences of human nature will contribute to our success in controlling human nature and changing it to the advantage of the common wheel.
Edward Thorndike
If a liberal policy towards the late Rebels is adopted, the ultra Republicans are opposed to it; if the colored people are honored, the extremists of the other wing cry out against it. I suspect I am right in both cases.
Rutherford B. Hayes
What is it we value? Innovation. Originality. Novelty. But most importantly…timeliness. I fear you may be too late, my confused, unfortunate, friend.
Brandon Sanderson
My first big mission for UNICEF in Ethiopia was just to attract attention, before it was too late, to conditions which threatened the whole country. My role was to inform the world, to make sure that the people of Ethiopia were not forgotten.
Audrey Hepburn
My father was 64 when I was conceived, my mother 38, which was late for babies in the 1940s.
John Major
I have to have faith that we’re going to succeed in transforming where we get our energy from. The big worry is whether or not we’re going to do it before it’s too late. And I think nobody knows the answer to that.
Josh Fox
The youth are very important to me, they’re the next generation, but I want to instill in kids, even in playing, that it’s never too late and there’s no right or wrong way to do anything.
Sheila E.
He was always late on principle, his principle being that punctuality is the thief of time.
Oscar Wilde
How does one make a movie about decadence these days? Now that we’re allowed to do it, it’s too late.
Wilfrid Sheed
Never mind, said Hachiko each day. Here I wait, for my friend who’s late. I will stay, just to walk beside you for one more day.
Jess C Scott
Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
I think if you really put your mind to something you can do it. Five and a half years ago I couldn’t stand on stage and play guitar. I didn’t have enough talent as a kid to play guitar. I started really late. I hired a guitar teacher when I was in Nashville and I applied myself and stayed focused.
Jimmy Wayne
Universal basic income is not a solution in search of a problem – it is the obvious solution that has been in front of us for years. It only requires us to have the vision, empathy and courage to adopt it for the American people before it is too late.
Andrew Yang
In the late 60s and early 70s, I did get interested in voices, and in narration and embodying the voice, making the poem sound like a real person talking.
Robert Morgan
It’s not too late to stop the Lisbon Treaty.
William Hague
It is never too late to give up our prejudices. No way of thinking or doing, however, ancient, can be trusted without proof. … Old deeds for old people, and new deeds for new.
Henry David Thoreau
Another two-bowl morning?” – Damien Maslin asking Zoey Redbird if her love of cereal was the reason she was almost late for Vamp Soc class
P. C. Cast
Yes; I remember Adlestrop- The name, because one afternoon Of heat the express-train drew up there Unwontedly. It was late June.
Edward Thomas
Looking back you realize that a very special person passed briefly through your life- and it was you. It is not too late to find that person again.
Robert Breault
As late as the seventeenth century, monarchs owned so little furniture that they had to travel from palace to palace with wagon-loads of plate and bedspreads, of carpets and tapestries.
Aldous Huxley
There’s always been some concern that adult subject matter should be quarantined from a page that attracts children. Unlike late at night, when ‘South Park’ and ‘Colbert’ are on, impressionable minds are wide awake when the newspaper arrives.
Garry Trudeau
The blues was so big in the late ’60s that it kinda wore itself out, and people weren’t diggin’ the blues as much.
Johnny Winter
It’s always been my feeling that God lends you your children until they’re about eighteen years old. If you haven’t made your points with them by then, it’s too late.
Betty Ford
I think that it’s workshops, honestly, that have kept me keen about photography, and about my photography. My career as a workshop photographer came while I was at the Geographic in the late 70’s, and has continued consistently since then.
Sam Abell
Look, the world’s comforter, with weary gait,
His day’s hot task hath ended in the west:
The owl, night’s herald, shrieks-’tis very late;
The sheep are gone to fold, birds to their nest;
And coal-black clouds, that shadow heaven’s light,
Do summon us to part, and bid good night.
William Shakespeare
I’ve got the courage to apply our conservative principles. I can’t do it alone. With your help, with God’s grace, we can save the idea of America before it’s too late.
Bobby Jindal
I bless God for this retirement: I never was more thankful for any thing than I have been of late for the necessity I am under of self-denial in many respects.
David Brainerd
The late King’s great service for the Muslim world and his noble deeds of charity and assistance for the poor of humanity will be long remembered with reverence.
Khaleda Zia
Learn, brethren, before it be too late, that ‘without Christ you can do nothing:’ that ‘all your fresh springs are in him:’ and ‘of him must your fruit be founds:’ ‘in him alone shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.’
Charles Simeon
The crime genre’s always been regarded very well by the literary end of the book world, whereas horror, although it had that spell in the late eighties, by and large, it’s sort of ghetto-ized, and considered to be exploited literature.
Peter James
Many a poor sore-eyed student that I have heard of would grow faster, both intellectually and physically, if, instead of sitting up so very late, he honestly slumbered a fool’s allowance.
Henry David Thoreau
The whole enterprise of teaching managers is steeped in the ethic of data-driven analytical support. The problem is, the data is only available about the past. So the way weve taught managers to make decisions and consultants to analyze problems condemns them to taking action when its too late.
Clayton Christensen
You define a good flight by negatives: you didn’t get hijacked, you didn’t crash, you didn’t throw up, you weren’t late, you weren’t nauseated by the food. So you are grateful.
Paul Theroux
I wonder if things can happen too early or too late or if everything happens at exactly the right time. If so, how sad and beautiful.
Simon Van Booy
You’re late.” “Sorry. I was busy talking about my feelings and killing people.
Jennifer Estep
There is an immeasurable distance between late and too late.
Og Mandino
I could not do what I do, and teach a class, and never miss a deadline, never be late for anything if I was a lush, OK? I would really love to read a piece that said, ‘He is not a lush.’ That would be fabulous, it would be a first, I could show it to people and say, ‘Look!’
Christopher Hitchens
I’m into ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Shaun of the Dead,’ obviously, and I’ve seen all the Romero movies. I am a classic zombie queen. And I love the White Walkers on ‘Game of Thrones.’ Weirdly, it wasn’t until pretty late in life that I found my entry point into horror films.
Anna Kendrick
God is never late, but He sure is slow.
James N. Watkins
When we spoke, Gene Wilder had just written a memoir called “Kiss Me Like A Stranger.” The title was suggested by his late wife Gilda Radner three weeks before she died in 1989.
Terry Gross
This is the problem of all great revelations: their significance so often exceeds the frame of our comprehension. We understand only after, always after. Not simply when it is too late, but precisely because it is too late.
R. Scott Bakker
I love that pre-mod jazz look of the late Fifties, the Steve McQueen style that influenced the British modernists.
Martin Freeman
I probably will not live to see Turkey become an exemplary democracy, but I pray that the downward authoritarian drift can be stopped before it is too late.
Fethullah Gulen
In the late hours of the night, befriend the prayer mat.
Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri
It got to the point in the late 70s and early 80s that I was spending so much money buying golden age comics that I could only justify it if I got work in the media.
Bill Mumy
Late night writing is also good, too, but in New York, you’ve got neighbors. I try to be a good neighbor.
Sara Bareilles
It’s too late for that – trying to second guess it. It’s over. I’m worried about how to get the kids through school and still write and practice law and take power of attorney.
Christopher Darden
We can neither put back the clock nor slow down our forward speed, and as we are already flying pilotless, on instrument controls, it is even too late to ask where we are going.
Igor Stravinsky
I came into music kind of late in life – until I was 17 I wanted to be a spy, wanted to be James Bond, so I had to learn rather quickly and practice longer than most people did to play catch up.
Daryl Davis
The honorable William Penn, late governor of Pennsylvania, was chosen agent to the Court of Britain, and directed to deliver the petition to the King himself and to endeavor by his personal influence to procure a favorable reception to this last address.
Mercy Otis Warren
Droll thing life is — that mysterious arrangement of merciless logic for a futile purpose. The most you can hope from it is some knowledge of yourself — that comes too late — a crop of inextinguishable regrets.
Joseph Conrad
I joined the Communist Party late in the summer of 1934. I got out a year and a half later.
Elia Kazan
You can get people the qualifications; But you can’t teach them the qualities they’re going to need. You can’t teach integrity, a drive for excellence, refusal to quit under pressure. It’s too late to build that into people you’re going to hire.
Roger Ailes
He turned to face her again, his late-pretty composure crumbling. “But you’re…” “Pretty? Think again.” She smiled. “I’m Tally Youngbood. My mind is very ugly. And I’m taking your car.
Scott Westerfeld
We have had no good comic operas of late, because the real world has been more comic than any possible opera.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
In the years between 2000 and 2004, I always got the feeling that people were just starting to hear about me and they were all late to the game. I’d be out playing shows for records that I recorded back in 1999 that were just coming out.
Ariel Pink
Me, I’d prefer to have a good reputation rather than getting press for being scandalous, getting drunk in public, staying out late and so on.
Sophia Bush
It’s always about timing. If it’s too soon, no one understands. If it’s too late, everyone’s forgotten.
Anna Wintour
Strong mental agitation and disturbance was no novelty to him, even before his late sufferings. It never is, to obstinate and sullen natures; for they struggle hard to be such.
Charles Dickens
I have always made my own rules, in poetry as in life – though I have tried of late to cooperate more with my family. I do, however, believe that without order or pattern poetry is useless.
Anne Stevenson
I was such a late bloomer when it comes to fashion.
Debra Messing
It was never too late to undo who you had become.
Rosanne Cash
Every woman in her late 20s goes through a period where she just doesn’t believe love is out there anymore, but it is. And I think the minute you stop looking for it is when it comes for you.
Kristen Bell
It matters only that you manifest your genius; it doesn’t matter when. It’s never too late or too early.
Mark Victor Hansen
Drink wine, and live here blitheful while ye may;
The morrow’s life too late is; live to-day.
Robert Herrick
Because I had children relatively late – in my 40s rather than in my 20s – it wasn’t anything I ever knew that I would do. It kind of happened to me: I met the right woman and we had children. It was a revelation because it suddenly makes me realize, ‘Oh, I get it. Now I know what to do with the rest of my life.’
Mark Strong
Of late years an abundant shower of curates has fallen upon the North of England.
Charlotte Bronte
When religion and politics travel in the same cart, the riders believe nothing can stand in their way. Their movements become headlong – faster and faster and faster. They put aside all thoughts of obstacles and forget the precipice does not show itself to the man in a blind rush until it’s to late.
Frank Herbert
I opened the Woodstock Festival even though I was supposed to be fifth. I said, ‘What am I doing here? No, no, not me, not first!’ I had to go on stage because there was no one else to go on first – the concert was already two-and-a-half hours late.
Richie Havens
One improvement I have learned from my childhood experience with my father: I do not threaten punishment in the morning. That was awful. Late into the night I would lie awake tossing and wondering what he was going to do to me. Usually he did nothing. A quiet, impressive ‘talking to’ was all I got.
Lincoln Steffens
Persons who are born too soon or born too late seldom achieve the eminence of those who are born at the right time.
Katharine Anthony
We are the only country in the world that trashes its old buildings. Too late we realize how very much we need them.
Jackie Kennedy
Few things are less comforting than a tiger who’s up too late.
Bill Watterson
The pressures to get the story first, if wrong, are greater sometimes than the pressures to get the story right, if late.
Alastair Campbell
Be there for your children. Sit on the bed and enjoy the late-night talks—try to stay awake! Pray for the Lord to inspire you. Forgive often. Choose your battles. Testify frequently of Jesus Christ and His goodness and of the Restoration. And most of all, let them know of your trust in the Lord.
Bonnie D. Parkin
I knew I was a winner back in the late sixties. I knew I was destined for great things. People will say that kind of thinking is totally immodest. I agree. Modesty is not a word that applies to me in any way – I hope it never will.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
. . I think the Adam Smith role was played in this cycle i.e. the late twentieth century collapse of socialism in which the idea of free-markets succeeded first, and then special events catalyzed a complete change of socio-political policy in countries around the world by Friedrich Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom.
Milton Friedman
You stupefied me. We waxed,
Carnivores, late and alight
In the beaded winter. All was ominous, luminous.
John Ashbery
In thy apparel avoid singularity, profuseness, and gaudiness. Be not too early in the fashion, nor too late. Decency is half way between affectation and neglect. The body is the shell of the soul, apparel is the husk of that shell; the husk often tells you what the kernel is.
Francis Quarles
I got my career started late so, even though I’m getting older, I don’t have as much wear and tear on my arm. I feel good. I really do.
Kurt Warner
Maybe it was the home tutoring, or the late start to formal schooling, or an overly cautious and protective upbringing, but in any case, I never became a talkative person. As an adult, I am not always comfortable in social gatherings with small talk. I must have inherited my father’s gentle nature.
Charles K. Kao
Everything has been said, and we are more than seven thousand years of human thought too late.
Jean de la Bruyere
The Colombians are good-tempered people. They are used to waiting for buses that are late, used to riding buses and trains that do not arrive.
Paul Theroux
You can’t bring tweezers on an airplane. If I’m on a plane and you try to hijack it with tweezers, I’ll whip your ass, man. You think I’m going to be late because you’ve got tweezers and a bad attitude?
Alonzo Bodden
Well, I think one of the reasons Chicago became so popular as a filmmaker location is because New York had been used so many times that Chicago, I think, was rediscovered maybe in the late ’60s, early ’70s for a long time as a new location.
Richard Roeper
By that point, it’ll have been more than year since I met Lulu. Any sane person would say it’s too late. It already felt too late that first day, when I woke up in the hospital. But even so, I’ve kept looking. I’m still looking.
Gayle Forman
I think Francis at half form is better than anybody else by 50%, you know? I think it’s just that he has never… he has a late pick of the things that are ambitious enough for him.
John Milius
The big gay clubs like Heaven started having mixed nights in the late ’80s.
Neil Tennant
You know it’s never too late to shoot for the stars regardless of who you are
Chad Kroeger
What does your attitude proclaim to the world about you today? It is never to late to change your story, start by changing your thoughts and pay attention to your attitude.
Bob Proctor
Don’t you hate when people are late to work. And they always have the worst excuses. “Oh, I’m sorry I’m late, traffic.” “Traffic, huh? How do you think I got here; helicoptered in!?”
Ellen DeGeneres
As of late, I am more of a homebody. I like having people over. You can smoke in the apartment. I’m just not into going out so much. The crowd is getting younger and younger.
Chloe Sevigny
Better late than never.
Any eyes on me – a late-night street sweeper, some dude texting in his parked car, the homeless guy talking to himself – make me feel uncomfortable when I skate. Everyone expects me to do certain things.
Rodney Mullen
Late-night television is like the cereal aisle in the supermarket: too many choices. Also, too many ‘different’ brands that really aren’t different at all.
Tom Shales
During the late afternoon and early evening there is a specific dimension that interconnects with our physical world. This particular dimension can be visualized as series of horizontally shaped geometric planes that extent out into infinity.
Frederick Lenz
With acting, I started very young, and I’d performed for a lot of children in boarding schools, late at night after the dormitory lights were out. I’d have a flashlight, and I’d be Count Dracula, or Shakespeare, or Yogi Bear, and leap from bunk to bunk. I loved the laughter; I liked the way it made people feel.
C. C. H. Pounder
I can’t get myself when I’m not punctual. If I’m late for an appointment, even a bit, I don’t feel good for a whole day.
July 13, 1954 was the most tragic day of my life. I had lost my beloved Frida forever. To late now I realized that the most wonderful part of my life had been my love for Frida.
Diego Rivera
When you’re young, you think you can handle anything. By the time you find out otherwise, it’s already too late. You got a stocking wrapped around your neck.
Haruki Murakami
I waited and worked, and watched the inferior exalted for nearly thirty years; and when recognition came at last, it was too late to alter events, or to make a difference in living.
Ellen Glasgow
“Did those nice church ladies come by again?” He nodded. “I asked them if a man died and then the woman remarried, and then the three of them met in heaven, would it be a sin for them to have a threesome, since they were all married in God’s eye. And they decided they were late to be somewhere else.”
Ilona Andrews
I collect watches because I’m always late, and I need to know exactly how late I’m going to be – in order to come up with a good excuse.
Colin Hanks
That’s the government. Having been a politician and a musician, I can tell you which one is a higher calling. If musicians ran the country, it would be a much different place. We wouldn’t get a lot done in the mornings, but we’d work late.
Kinky Friedman
From the late 1940s, into and through the ’50s, there developed a complex interaction between federal government, state and local government, real-estate interests, commercial interests and court decisions, which had the effect of undermining the mass transit system across the country.
Noam Chomsky
In the mid- to late ’60s to the mid-’70s, when I was a student, there was a major change in the thinking about what art can be and how art is made.
Bill Viola
There is no more ridiculous custom than the one that makes you express sympathy once and for all on a given day to a person whose sorrow will endure as long as his life. Such grief, felt in such a way is always present, it is never too late to talk about it, never repetitious to mention it again.
Marcel Proust
Players who are late say that their time is more important than the team.
Don Meyer
All office workers are afraid of being late for work.
Stefan Zweig
Be not sick too late, nor well too soon
Benjamin Franklin
To me, the counterculture was always what I grew up with the hippies in the late ’60s. But, however you define it, it’s really the excesses of youth and it’s something that everyone goes through to some extent. Or if they don’t, they should do.
Derek Ridgers
Before I became a writer, I was running a jazz bar in the center of Tokyo, which means that I worked in filthy air all the time late into the night. I was very excited when I started making a living out of my writing, and I decided, ‘I will live in nothing but an absolutely healthy way.’
Haruki Murakami
I told her it was a bigger than life musical, that all the actors were going to be about the same age, late twenties into thirties. It would be a style; a kind of surreal high school.
Randal Kleiser
May it not suffice for me to say … that of course like every other man of intelligence and education I do believe in organic evolution. It surprises me that at this late date such questions should be raised.
Woodrow Wilson
I was an early adopter: have been on the internet continuously since late 1989, barring a six-month loss of access in the early 90s.
Charles Stross
Social historians of the future no doubt will be amused by the fact that we late-twentieth-century Americans found it acceptable to discuss publicly in detail the most intimate aspects of personal life, while maintaining an almost prudish reserve concerning the political significance of family life.
Mary Ann Glendon
The candid incline to surmise of late that the Christian faith proves false.
Robert Browning
With globalization and with a lot of power evaporating from the nation-states, the late-19th century established hierarchies of importance, or ‘pecking orders’ of cultures, presenting assimilation as an advancement or promotion, dissolved.
Zygmunt Bauman
Those who are late will be punished by life itself.
Mikhail Gorbachev
Stan said he used to keep Hardy late, make him miss his golf game, and really get him mad.
Dick Van Dyke
Las Vegas is the boxing capital. During a Floyd Mayweather fight weekend, you can shop, party, stay out late and do anything you want. The city of Las Vegas has everything.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
You could push people away, past their limits, even accidentally, and then it was just too late to get them back
Laura Moriarty
When ill news comes too late to be serviceable to your neighbor, keep it to yourself.
Johann Georg Ritter von Zimmermann
I am not an early-morning person; I don’t like to get out of bed, and so I don’t begin writing at five A.M., though some people, I hear, do. I write once my day has started. And I can work late into the night, also.
Chinua Achebe
We drilled in the right place – we were simply 30 million years too late
Richard Bray
The fundamental importance of the subject of molecular diffraction came first to be recognized through the theoretical work of the late Lord Rayleigh on the blue light of the sky, which he showed to be the result of the scattering of sunlight by the gases of the atmosphere.
C. V. Raman
If you don’t try to fly and so break yourself apart, you will be broken open by death, when it’s too late for all you could become.
The ebb and flow as an artist is a bizarre experience, for sure. I was lucky enough to become successful pretty young – in late ’79, 1980 – with a body of work that got recognized and became an archetype.
Robert Longo
It’s never too late to start the day over.
Michael Franti
I’m a terrible interviewer. I’m not a journalist – although I have a Peabody Award – and I’m not really a late-night host. What I am is honest.
Craig Ferguson
Face troubles from their birth, for ’tis too late to cure
When long delay has given the evil strength.
Haste then; postpone not to the coming hour: tomorrow
He’ll be less ready who’s not ready now.
I get nervous watching teammates. I get nervous for them. Late in the game, pressure situation, I’m nervous for them.
Derek Jeter
The language ‘It’s too late’ is very unsuitable for most environmental issues. It’s too late for the dodo and for people who’ve starved to death already, but it’s not too late to prevent an even bigger crisis. The sooner we act on the environment, the better.
Jeremy Grantham
It’s terrible to realize that you don’t learn how to live until you’re ready to die; and, then it’s too late.
Edna Ferber
I don’t think we’ve got much of a chance to tell you the truth. But our main problem is our audience skews a little older than most shows, and I don’t think our people can stay up that late. I certainly can’t.
Dick Van Dyke
I don’t like people who are late.
Anna Wintour
And then we watched an amazing number of movies from the late ’60s and ’70s, which is my favorite time, and we studied their camera movements, their stocks, the way they lit stuff, the colors they used.
Ted Demme
Spring came late, but when it came it was hand-in-hand with summer, and almost at once everything was baking and warm, and in the villages the people danced every night on concrete dancing floors under the plane trees.
Nancy Mitford
Poetry is not Irish or any other nationality; and when writers such as Messrs. Clarke, Farren and the late F. R. Higgins pursue Irishness as a poetic end, they are merely exploiting incidental local colour.
Patrick Kavanagh
Rain amplifies your mistakes, and water on the track can make your car handle unpredictably. When something unpredictable happens you have to react to it; if you’re reacting at speed, you’re reacting too late. And so you should be afraid.
Garth Stein
They [the critics] deal with Schoenberg’s early works and all their wealth by classifying them, with the music-historical clichГ©, as late romantic post-Wagnerian. One might just as well dispose of Beethoven as a late-classicist post-Haydnerian.
Theodor Adorno
Whenever I catch a chunk of an Adam Sandler comedy on cable, it looks as badly shot and goofily tossed off as a Jerry Lewis gag reel once he hit the late downslide with ‘Hardly Working’ and ‘Cracking Up.’
James Wolcott
The professionalism of wire service reporters is constantly being tested because reporters know that if they’re late or sloppy on a story, it will show up because the competition is likely to be not late and not sloppy.
Bob Greene
I never married because there was no need. I have three pets at home which answer the same purpose as a husband. I have a dog which growls every morning, a parrot which swears all afternoon, and a cat that comes home late at night.
Marie Corelli
When I was young in L.A. and I couldn’t get into clubs or restaurants, I would call imitating celebrities and get a table, and it would work often. I was either Stallone or Mickey Rourke: ‘This is Sly. I may be late, but my buddy Hank will be there early.’
Hank Azaria
It is often too late by the time the government reacts.
Vandana Shiva
Live news teaches you some incredibly strong lessons: that every day is a new day, and it’s never too late to fix something.
Nancy Dubuc
We also quoted Robert Luskin, Rove’s attorney, acknowledging that Rove did speak to Cooper late on the week prior to the article coming out, which would have been July 10 or 11.
Michael Isikoff
Greece won the 2004 European Championship with the oldest trick in the book: man-for-man marking. Why? Because nobody expected it – and by the time they knew what Otto Rehhagel’s team were about, it was too late. Great football is like great comedy in that way. It is all in the timing.
Martin Samuel
Because I came into acting late, my references come from real life. That’s my biggest inspiration. It’s probably the reason I moved back to New York. I’m just a lot more inspired by real life than I am by depictions of real life.
Romany Malco
The way to good conduct is never too late.
Seneca the Younger
It is never too late to become reasonable and wise.
Immanuel Kant
The world, I think, has too many late-night talk shows.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
I teach one semester a year, and this year I’m just teaching one course during that semester, a writing workshop for older students in their late 20s and early 30s, people in our graduate program who are already working on a manuscript and trying to bring it to completion.
Tobias Wolff
I was a late bloomer.
Alia Shawkat
Even a correct decision is wrong when it was taken too late.
Lee Iacocca
Sometimes we stare so long at a door that is closing that we see too late the one that is open.
Alexander Graham Bell
It’s never too late to get good at something.
Guy Fieri
Sometimes it’s a struggle to make everything work. I usually work on music from nine in the morning until three in the afternoon. Then there are the family activities. Then I work again at night – from nine to as late as two.
Hans-Peter LindstrГёm
The world is so full and abundant it is like a pregnant woman carrying a child in one arm and leading another by the hand. Every puddle in the lane is ringed with sipping butterflied that fly up in flutter when you walk past in the late morning on your way to get the mail.
Wendell Berry
Once colon cancer becomes symptomatic, nine times out of ten it is too late.
Kevin Richardson
I was not awesome at dancing. For a ballerina, I probably started too late. Plus I enjoyed entertaining people too much.
Judy Greer
It is not worth the bother of killing yourself, since you always kill yourself too late.
Emil Cioran
Men know life too early. Women know life too late. That is the difference between men and women.
Oscar Wilde
Attention and respect give pleasure, however late, or however useless. But they are not useless, when they are late, it is reasonable to rejoice, as the day declines, to find that it has been spent with the approbation of mankind.
Samuel Johnson
There is, by God’s grace, an immeasurable distance between late and too late.
Sophie Swetchine
It’s never too late – never too late to start over, never too late to be happy.
Jane Fonda
The reason I wanted to start directing is that as an actor I felt I came into a job late. There’s a whole team of people who have been working on it for months before you start. You have this really intense period of filming and then you leave it, knowing that the director will work on it for another few months.
David Morrissey
When I was in high school, I was a late bloomer. And just like all those supermodels who said they were gawky and no one liked them, that was me – metaphorically. And so I was ready to rise like a phoenix in later times.
Stephen Malkmus
It is too late, now I wish I could live.
John Buford
I have a lot of growing up to do. But I think, ‘Hell, is it too late?’
Ronnie Wood
People ask me for my autograph after a show. I’m not famous, I think they’re messing with me. I think they’re trying to make me late for something.
Mitch Hedberg
India was a late comer to industrialization, and as such, we have contributed very little to the accumulation of greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming. But we are determined to be part of the solution to the problem.
Manmohan Singh
We have much studied and much perfected, of late, the great civilized invention of the division of labour; only we give it a false name. It is not, truly speaking, the labour that is divided; but the men.
John Ruskin
Kill if you must, but never hate: Man is but grass and hate is blight, The sun will scorch you soon or late, Die wholesome then, since you must fight
Robert Graves
We made no inquiries about India or about the families people had left behind. When our ways of thinking had changed, and we wished to know, it was too late. I know nothing of the people on my father’s side; I know only that some of them came from Nepal
V. S. Naipaul
My poor kids have accepted that being dropped off late to birthday parties, practices, and yes, school, is just part of the large family package.
Rachel Campos-Duffy
I discovered Los Angeles in the late 90s. The city was not at its best at the time, but I fell for it right away. There is something almost haunted about it, a vibrant mythology I find rather inspiring.
Hedi Slimane
Charlotte, darling,” Henry said to his wife, who was staring at him in gape-mouthed horror. Jessamine, beside her, was wide eyed. “Sorry I’m late. You know, I think I might nearly have the Sensor working-” Will interrupted. “Henry,” he said, “You’re on fire. You do know that don’t you?
Cassandra Clare
I knew I was too late—and I was glad something bloodthirsty waited in the wings. For in failing at this, I forfeited any desire to live.
Stephenie Meyer
I found golf late in life, in 1990. I took some lessons and struggled. Then one day, I hit a drive that was so crisp and clean, with no vibration. There’s no feeling like it. I was hooked.
Dennis Quaid
I started out playing big bands shows and different things. I was with several different small bands and groups, doing comedy and singing, emceeing, and I got a break with a very big star of the late fifties whose name was Tommy Sands.
Hal Blaine
Stupid Sixteen year old kid falling from the sky! I’m late!
Rick Riordan
I’ve always been a late bloomer in some ways, and extremely precocious in other ways. When I was twenty I was living in New York and working a job and could barely bother to be a college student and had my own apartment, but I couldn’t possibly get married before I was thirty-nine.
Meghan Daum
I had nearly finished school because I was making effort not that bad on that. But there was a law in Germany after the war. You could not make your final examination before 18, so lots of people who were late because of the way had to do it first.
Karl Lagerfeld
One of my favorite films is ‘Late Spring’ by Yasujiro Ozu. To me, it represents film as art.
Michael Arndt
The ethics of editorial judgement, however, began to go though a sea change during the late 1970s and 80s when the Carter and Reagan Administrations de-regulated the television industry.
Roger Mudd
It’s never too late to change the programming imprinted in childhood, carried in our genes or derived from previous lives; the solution is mindfulness in the present moment.
Peter Shepherd
Historically, the British have always been rather wary of grand engineering projects – perhaps understandably, given that many of them have been delivered late and over budget.
Evan Davis
Our most meaningful conversations go on late at night when we’re on the phone with our friends or talking to our lovers.
Marianne Williamson
I know I shouldn’t say this—I know it as surely as I know the earth is round and beats are evil—and yet here it comes: “It’s not too late to change your mind.
Sara Zarr
Late at night, when everyone is quiet, sit alone and gaze into the mind; then you notice illusion ending and reality appearing. You gain a great sense of potential in this every time. Once you have noticed reality appearing yet find that illusion is hard to escape, you also find yourself greatly humbled.
Zicheng Hong
Most great figures in world history are remembered for their compassion. [Martin Luther] King shared this trait with the Ghandis, Mother Teresas, and Mandelas of the world. He also shared this trait with the late Stanley Tookie Williams.
Renford Reese
Don’t forget until too late that the business of life is not business but living.
B. C. Forbes
We come late, if at all, to wine and philosophy: whiskey and action are easier.
Mignon McLaughlin
I’m normally last and I’m quite a late person and that is just who I am.
Louis Tomlinson
Gardeners celebrate the influence of time. If we have had a late cold spring followed by a desiccating drought, autumn may be the most soft and golden for years; one poor season will sooner or later be compensated for by another.
Susan Hill
SuperMemo is based on the insight that there is an ideal moment to practice what you’ve learned. Practice too soon and you waste your time. Practice too late and you’ve forgotten the material and have to relearn it. The right time to practice is just at the moment you’re about to forget.
Gary Wolf
The late PrГ©sident de Montesquieu told me that he knew how to be blind–he had been so for such a long time–but I swear that I do not know how to be deaf: I cannot get used to it, and I am as humiliated and distressed by it today as I was during the first week. No philosophy in the world can palliate deafness.
Lord Chesterfield
Moviemakers can be late to a subject, or afraid, but often they are brave and ahead of their time.
Barbra Streisand
I am always early to work but sometimes late to other things.
Zooey Deschanel
I love Donna Summer, and I love ABBA. I love late 70s disco. I love the Bee Gees. I just love that period of recording.
Taylor Hawkins
In our appetite for gossip, we tend to gobble down everything before us, only to find, too late, that it is our ideals we have consumed, and we have not been enlarged by the feasts but only diminished.
Pico Iyer
We had had mass immigration from the late 1800s all the way through the early 1900s to the 1920s, and we had to pause the immigration in order to for the new arrivals to assimilate, to become Americans, to learn English, for one thing. The one thing – or not the one; there are many different things.
Rush Limbaugh
It was the late Dr. Mahendra Lal Sircar who, by founding the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, made it possible for the scientific aspirations of my early years to continue burning brightly.
C. V. Raman
I had an appointment with a sexual deviant and I didn’t want to be late.
Ilona Andrews
You can win it in the late innings if you never quit.
Robert Forster
Obama was late to affirm the Egyptian revolution as a democratic movement, and even then he was eager to have installed those military leaders who were known for their practices of torture.
Judith Butler
If you don’t know where you’re going any road will do
Lewis Carroll
You know, many a man realizes late in life that if when he was a boy he had known what he knows now, instead of being what he is he might be what he won’t; but how few boys stop to think that if they knew what they don’t know instead of being what they will be, they wouldn’t be?
Stephen Leacock
Soundlessly whispering into the void, my lips moving quickly, silently, without ceasing. Calling his name, calling him to me. Even though there’s no use. Even though it’s futile. Even though it’s way past too late.
Alyson Noel
I’ve been having this really weird anxiety dream about arriving too late or too early, and the people in charge are like, ‘You have to leave! You have to go back to the hotel and get ready!’ And I use the wrong exit, and I’m running down the red carpet in pyjamas, like, ‘No! Don’t look at me!’
Florence Welch
Republicans were more pro-choice than Democrats up until the late 1980s.
Jill Lepore
I was definitely a late bloomer.
Clay Matthews III
You’ve got to be crazy! It’s too late to be sane, too late. You’ve got to go full tilt bozo… ‘Cause you’re only given a little spark of madness… and if you lose that, you’re nothing
Robin Williams
In the very early Seventies and the very late Sixties, nobody out here was originally from L.A.
Joe Walsh
Perhaps it’s only when people are dead that we can safely show how much we cared about them. We know that it’s too late then for them to do anything about it.
P. D. James
I have been urging the leaders to listen to the aspirations and challenges of their own people, and engage in dialogue and take very bold measures. Normally, to their regret, these measures and bold reforms come too late, too little.
Ban Ki-moon
I set the time on my iPhone to be 30 minutes late, so I’m only an hour and a half late to appointments now.
Bill Hader
It is too late to be studying Hebrew; it is more important to understand even the slang of today.
Henry David Thoreau
She felt a cage coming down around her; too late she realized that he had her trapped by the heart. And like any unwilling animal that was well and truly caught, she could escape only by leaving a piece of herself behind.
Jodi Picoult
Don’t wait. Tomorrow may be too late to do the things you can today.
Ron Kaufman
I joined the Communist Party late in 1934. I got out a year and a half later.
Elia Kazan
