Mark Twain

It’s tough to have a guy – not hinting at anything; it wasn’t anything in the past – but when coaches are kind of on that roller-coaster ride, up and down, highs and lows, you never know what to expect.

I don’t like being in one place too long. Five days just about does it for me because I have a very low threshold for boredom.
Jackie Collins
Ever since viewing screens entered the home, many observers have worried that they put our brains into a stupor. An early strain of research claimed that when we watch television, our brains mostly exhibit slow alpha waves – indicating a low level of arousal, similar to when we are daydreaming.
Hanna Rosin
…even on the low ground of common sense I seemed to be called to be a missionary. Is the kingdom a harvest field? Then I thought it reasonable that I should seek to work where the work was most abundant and the workers fewest.
William Carey
It was a very economically depressed time [the 80s] and because of that, there was a lot of space. Everything was relatively dilapidated, and one could live on a pretty low income. One could live well below the poverty line and not suffer immensely.
Kiki Smith
I pictured a low timber house with a shingled roof, caulked against storms, with blazing log fires inside and the walls lined with all the best books, somewhere to live when the rest of the world blew up.
Bruce Chatwin
Somedays I think I’m a rebel in my own mind but most of the times I’m a low-key, follow the rules type of guy.
Denzel Whitaker
The fundamental law of capitalism is: when workers have more money, businesses have more customers, and need more workers. The idea that high wages equals low employment, it’s absurd.
Nick Hanauer
The six and one-fourth hours’ television watching (the American average per day) which non-reading children do is what is called alpha-level learning. The mind needn’t make any pictures since the pictures are provided, so the mind cuts current as low as it can.
Carol Bly
I keep living life as it’s dealt to me. Sometimes, it’s not dealt 100 percent. Sometimes it’s dealt on the low ’30s.
Bobby Womack
My next book is also set in the eighteenth century. It’s about the Revolution, with the focus on the year 1776. It’s about Washington and the army and the war. It’s the nadir, the low point of the United States of America.
David McCullough
The American crow is at an all-time low of 82 birds. Others hit by the West Nile, like the black-capped chickadee, have rebounded.
Jeff Chapman
The bar is so low in rap – mediocrity is king!
Jay Electronica
Cunning… is but the low mimic of wisdom.
What differentiates us from other money managers with a similar style is that we’re comfortable with new lows.
Peter Cundill
I approach most things in life with a dangerous level of confidence to balance my generally low self-esteem.
Roxane Gay
To actually unleash an entire generation to do what they’ve already been trained to do. They’ve done the work, they have the degrees, they have the passion, but they’re working two or three part-time low-wage, temporary jobs just to keep a roof over their heads.
Jill Stein
As a reader, I have a very short attention span and a low tolerance for boredom, and I find that comes in handy with my writing. If I get bored writing something, I pity the people who will then try to read it.
John Scalzi
With respect to trust, people tell me that it is essential for organizational functioning. Maybe, but most surveys of trust find that trust in leaders is low and nonetheless, organizations role along quite nicely.
Jeffrey Pfeffer
I’ve always been taught to play the game hard. Baseball is such a tough game, it really humbles you at times, you just have to try not to get too high or too low.
Chase Utley
The poet’s habit of living should be set on a key so low that the common influences should delight him.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I know how to play my guard spot, … He can worry about the low post.
Kobe Bryant
When you have seen the errors in which you live, you will understand the good that we have done you by coming to your land by order of his Majesty the King of Spain. Our Lord permitted that your pride should be brought low and that no Indian should be able to offend a Christian.
Jared Diamond
A boxer’s diet should be low in fat and high in proteins and sugar. Therefore you should eat plenty of lean meat, milk, leafy vegetables, and fresh fruit and ice cream for sugar.
Gene Tunney
Mapplethorpe presented the body as a sexual object, separating it from the humanity of the person. He added nothing to photography as a medium. I hold his work in low regard.
Jerzy Kosinski
We may be surprised at the people we find in heaven. God has a soft spot for sinners. His standards are quite low.
Desmond Tutu
Better have failed in the high aim, as I, Than vulgarly in the low aim succeed As, God be thanked! I do not.
Robert Browning
I knew it, I just knew it! The person who had the job of writing my life’s dialogue used to work on a very low budget soap opera.
Marian Keyes
Everyone procrastinates. The difference between high performers and low performers is largely determined by what they choose to procrastinate on. Since you must procrastinate anyway, decide today to procrastinate on low-value activities.
Brian Tracy
Love cannot endure indifference. It needs to be wanted. Like a lamp, it needs to be fed out of the oil of another’s heart, or its flame burns low.
Henry Ward Beecher
Elegy on the Death of a Mad Dog And in that town a dog was found, As many dogs there be, Both mongrel, puppy, whelp, and hound, And curs of low degree.
Oliver Goldsmith
A low-carbon, clean energy economy can be an engine of growth for decades to come.
Barack Obama
Everyone dreams, but not everybody remembers their dreams because some people go into delta; they go too low.
Sylvia Browne
If thou art rich, then show the greatness of thy fortune; or what is better, the greatness of thy soul, in the meekness of thy conversation; condescend to men of low estate, support the distressed, and patronize the neglected. Be great.
Laurence Sterne
I’ve worked on high visibility shows that weren’t always the best, and low visibility shows that I love but that didn’t have the PR behind them.
J. Michael Straczynski
Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low.
There isn’t a king or a merchant prince in the whole world that I envy, for I always knew I was born to be a child of destiny and that I was never meant to wring my living from detestable, low, degrading, mean and ordinary kinds of business.
John Cheever
The road makes a noise all its own. It’s a single note that stretches in all directions, low and nearly inaudible, only I could hear it loud and persistent.
Gregory Galloway
My whole problem is that all of my favorite things at Thanksgiving are the starches, and everyone is trying to go low-carb this year, even a green vegetable has carbs in it.
Ted Allen
The tree laden with fruits always bends low. If you wish to be great, be lowly and meek.
To thee, fair Freedom! I retire From flattery, cards, and dice, and din: Nor art thou found in mansions higher Than the low cot, or humble inn.
William Shenstone
Be yourselves, be spunky, be spontaneous. Low-maintenance is always the biggest plus in the world.
Ryan Follese
Heather and I decided we were going to be pretty low-key at the convention.
Mary Cheney
I think that digital is offering many great possibilities for cinematographers. Particularly in urban cityscapes and low light photography its allowing us to render what we actually see with our eyes; which is interesting.
Seamus McGarvey
The poor inhabitant below Was quick to learn and wise to know And keenly felt the friendly glow And softer flame; But thoughtless follies laid him low, And stain’d his name!
Robert Burns
Rush Limbaugh is good for the party. Drive it all the way down, take it down as low as it can go, make complete fools of themselves, because it’s always darkest before the dawn, and then maybe a moderate can come in and rescue them.
Evan Thomas
Dear to me is sleep: still more, being made of stone, While pain and guilt still linger here below, Blindness and numbness–these please me alone; Then do not wake me, keep your voices low.
Do you think we’ll be waiting long?” Valkyrie asked, keeping her voice low. “The last time we were in this building, we accused the Grand Mage of being a traitor,” Skulduggery said. “Yes, I think we’ll be waiting long.
Derek Landy
All Nature is linked together by invisible bonds and every organic creature, however low, however feeble, however dependent, is necessary to the well-being of some other among the myriad forms of life.
George Perkins Marsh
I think if you’re in this business, like any high-stakes business, the highs and lows can make you a manic-depressive person, if you weren’t that way to start with. ‘Cause it’s just so crazy on your psyche. A lot of it has to do with people thinking they’re greater than someone else.
Joan Cusack
For women, the higher their cholesterol is, the longer their life; there’s a direct relationship between the two. Your cholesterol cannot be too high if you are a woman, but it can certainly be too low.
Jimmy Moore
I wrote half the record in 2002, which basically concluded with us releasing “Baby’s Got A Temper,” the last single. I think after the disappointment of that record for myself with the lack of energy and the way the record came out, I would say that was probably the low point of The Prodigy.
Liam Howlett
Low-income seniors who choose to enroll in a drug discount plan will receive $600 of Federal assistance in 2004 and 2005 to further defray the costs of their medications.
Jim Gerlach
A special thank you must go to my mum and dad and entire family for your unwavering support. It means so much for them to have followed and watched nearly all my games, sharing my highs and lows.
Robert Green
Highs and lows make you feel that things matter, but they’re nothing.” “So what’s something?” “Being reliable is something. Being good.
Jonathan Safran Foer
And I’m not confused about the lack of, or the need for, imagination in low or high places. We could do better we must do better. There are far worse things to drop on people than crayolas.
Robert Fulghum
Branding is not merely about differentiating products; it is about striking emotional chords with consumers. It is about cultivating identity, attachment, and trust to inspire customer loyalty. Chinese brands score low on attributes such as “sophisticated,” “desirable,” “innovative,” “friendly,” and “trustworthy.”
Nirmalya Kumar
There’s no way you can shoot low-budget stuff on lots of locations. It’s just a practicality thing because every time you move, it costs time and money.
Ben Wheatley
Carbohydrates, and especially refined ones like sugar, make you produce lots of extra insulin. I’ve been keeping my intake really low ever since I discovered this. I’ve cut out all starch such as potatoes, noodles, rice, bread and pasta.
Cynthia Kenyon
Sunlight ‘s a thing that needs a window Before it enter a dark room. Windows don’t happen.” So two old poets, Hunched at their beer in the low haze Of an inn parlour, while the talk ran Noisily by them, glib with prose.
R. S. Thomas
No economic measure has more value for a nation than investing in a clean & sustainable low carbon future
Phil Harding
Integrity doesn’t come in degrees: low, medium, or high. You either have integrity or you don’t.
Tony Dungy
A mere ape in our world may be a scholar in its own, and the low life of any beast may be a source of deep satisfaction for the beast itself.
Jeffrey Kluger
I like to play in the low 70’s. If it gets any hotter than that I’ll stay in the bar!
Bob Hope
The man with the greatest soul will always face the greatest war with the low minded person.
Albert Einstein
The key thing about any fund is to make sure its expenses are low. You know, if you look at the funds in your plan and you see that they’re all charging 1.5 and 2 percent,you’ve gota bad plan.
William J. Bernstein
As some to church repair, Not for the doctrine, but the music there. These equal syllables alone require, Though oft the ear the open vowels tire While expletives their feeble aid do join, And ten low words oft creep in one dull line.
Alexander Pope
​Life is a series of highs and lows. The trick is to tip the balance in your favor by following your heart and taking some risks.
John Avery
India is growing at 8 percent. China is growing at 7 percent. And that for them is a catastrophically low number.
Donald Trump
I think the probability of a supernatural creator existing is very very low.
Richard Dawkins
They crested a rise, and there it was, in the hollow between rolling hills—a low, square building, ghostly gray in the moonlight. “Is that it?” asked Hamilton. “It probably isn’t the local opera house,” groaned Ian.
Gordon Korman
Yes. I think the anti-Wal-Mart is Costco, which pays much better and has much better health benefits and which is profitable and offers low prices.
Barbara Ehrenreich
People seldom read a book which is given to them; and few are given. The way to spread a work is to sell it at a low price. No man will send to buy a thing that costs even sixpence without an intention to read it.
Samuel Johnson
Poor quality is remembered long after low prices are forgotten.
Charles Rolls
Although my marriage left me with three beautiful children, it also left me with a healthy dose of self-doubt, low self-esteem, and an extreme desire to be loved again. I was operating on empty, expecting to be paid in full.
Niecy Nash
If I answer questions every time you ask one, expectations would be high. And as you know, I like to keep expectations low.
George W. Bush
Cleaning up after themselves was a low priority for Margo and my mother. They had both recovered from cancer scares, failed marriages, and lost hope; in their opinion, dirt could wait.
Alice Hoffman
What a book a devil’s chaplain might write on the clumsy, wasteful, blundering, low, and horribly cruel work of nature!
Charles Darwin
We are keenly in sympathy with the representatives of Labour. We have too few of them in the House of Commons. The Liberal party, high and low, have discovered, if they ever forgot it, that the real road to success lies in adhering to the old principles of the party.
Henry Campbell-Bannerman
And Potomac flowed calmly, scarce heaving her breast, With her low-lying billows all bright in the west, For a charm as from God lulled the waters to rest Of the fair rolling river.
Paul Hamilton Hayne
It is better to be as low as hell with a promise, than in Paradise without one.
John Flavel
An actor’s life is pretty much like any profession, full of highs and lows; only because this is the glamour world – everything gets reported.
Daisy Shah
I have always paid careful attention to social and economic conflicts, to the dialectic – if we can call it that – between high and low. Maybe it’s because I was not born or brought up in affluence.
Elena Ferrante
I assume my stance, and take back the club, low, slowly; at the top, my eyes fog over, and my joints dip and swirl like barn swallows, I swing. There is a fruitless commotion of dust and rubber at my feet. “Smothered it,” I say promptly. After enough lessons the terminology becomes second nature.
John Updike
Donald Trump is redundant evidence that if your net worth is high enough, your IQ can be very low and you can still intrude into American politics.
George Will
I never saw the point in listening to only one thing. The low art/high art distinction comes from the establishment telling me how I’m supposed to think.
Matt Tong
We have creative freedom because of budgets. Ever since I have been doing low budget movies, we’ve really had creative freedom.
Jason Blum
I get quite stroppy if I lose – but I’ve developed skills with a mind coach to help deal with the highs and lows of tennis at this level.
Johanna Konta
The gate of heaven is very low; only the humble can enter it.
Elizabeth Ann Seton
Old hippies don’t die, they just lie low until the laughter stops and their time comes round again.
Joe Gallivan
No one can make you feel low unless you allow them to. You’re not stupid, Alix. And you’re very beautiful. I just thought you should know that. (Devyn)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Why were you feeling low? Why does anyone? It creeps up on you from time to time.
Patrick deWitt
At length corruption, like a general flood (So long by watchful ministers withstood), Shall deluge all; and avarice, creeping on, Spread like a low-born mist, and blot the sun.
Alexander Pope
A garden has this advantage, that it makes it indifferent where you live. A well-laid garden makes the face of the country of no account; let that be low or high, grand or mean, you have made a beautiful abode worthy of man.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The helicopter was a U.S. Navy helicopter. There were no civilian helicopters available to film companies, so they just made some stuff out of two-by-four wood. And I would straddle a two-by-four out from the helicopter with a camera and what we call a high hat, which is a low metal stand.
Haskell Wexler
The vast majority (over 80 percent) of fast-food and similar low wage service jobs (<$9.24/hr) are held by adults. A quarter are adults over 40. Another quarter are moms raising kids.
David Rolf
Creative force, like a musical composer, goes on unweariedly repeating a simple air or theme, now high, now low, in solo, in chorus, ten thousand times reverberated, till it fills earth and heaven with the chant.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
People understand that the economy is rigged. They’re working longer hours for low wages. All new income and wealth, almost all, is going to the people on top.
Bernie Sanders
There are a lot of parallels between doing a sequel and doing low budget movies, which is they give creative parameters. As a creative person myself, I work better with parameters as opposed to anything goes.
Jason Blum
Christ commands you to take up His cross and follow Him, not that He may humble you, or lay some penance upon you, but that you may surrender the low self-will and the feeble pride of your sin, and ascend into the sublime patience of heavenly charity.
Horace Bushnell
Say I Want to Feel Good when youre Tempted to Indulge in Low-Energy Thoughts
Wayne Dyer
The worst thing about jealousy is how low it makes you reach.
Erica Jong
All the shopping malls and restaurants and airports are riddled with low-fidelity loudspeakers, which apparently have developed the ability to reproduce by themselves; these are all connected to a special programming service called Music That Nobody Really Likes, and you cannot get away from it.
Dave Barry
The tall team takes the low road into the lead
Martin Tyler
Having been challenged by Colonel Pickering, Higgins: You know, it’s almost irresistible. She’s so deliciously low. So horribly dirty.
Rex Harrison
An increase in the relative price of products from the low wage manufacturers in Asia and Latin America will also make those products less attractive to American consumers.
Martin Feldstein
The judiciary has fallen to a very low state in this country. I think your part of the country has suffered especially. The federal judges of the South are a disgrace to any country, and I’ll be damned if I put any man on the bench of whose character and ability there is the least doubt.
William Howard Taft
Nothing goes out of fashion sooner than a long dress with a very low neck.
Coco Chanel
We cannot afford to lose the Medicaid funding for low-income women.
Kay Bailey Hutchison
Movie people are possessed by demons, but a very low form of demons.
Edna O’Brien
What in me is dark Illumine, what is low raise and support, That to the height of this great argument I may assert eternal Providence, And justify the ways of God to men. 1 Paradise Lost. Book i. Line 22.
John Milton
The teacher’s life is painfull and therefore would be pityed: it wrastles with unthankfulnesse above all measure…Our calling creepes low and hath pain for companion.
Richard Mulcaster
There is a calm for those who weep, A rest for weary pilgrims found, They softly lie and sweetly sleep Low in the ground.
James Montgomery
I have a really simple wardrobe. I wear a low-scoop tee every day with a tux or leather jacket and tux pants or black jeans. That’s pretty much it.
Johan Lindeberg
I feel very honored and special really. You can’t imagine, to arrive at the Oscars when you arrive so low, and you can’t go further than the Oscars.
Berenice Bejo
I don’t take success very well, because I know it’s fleeting. And the next day, it can all fall apart. I know that, too. So I don’t get too high, and I don’t get too low. You get through the world a lot easier that way.
James Garner
Clean energy is about offering people the opportunity to do what’s right for themselves and the people they love. It’s about reducing the pollution that makes people sick. It’s about helping the low-income families struggling to pay their gas and electricity bills.
Gloria Reuben
The things that made me were the highs and the lows – that’s what made me the cricketer I was when I retired. And the lows do a lot to give you a real kick up the backside in making sure you never take things for granted.
Michael Clarke
Until you came along I never dated anyone this low on the food chain.
Al Yankovic
Raising the federal minimum wage won’t just put more money in the pocket of low-income families – it also means they spend more money at the businesses in their neighborhoods. [Donald] Trump’s against that as well.
Hillary Clinton
Get passed the low hanging fruit. Anybody can grab that! Elevate your thought process and your mind and be creative.
Eric Thomas
At the root of fear is low self-esteem. This explains why angry people have low self-esteem, are argumentative, stubborn, and quick to flare up yet slow to forgive. Those behaviors are defenses against the underlying fear.
David J. Lieberman
In low-income countries, getting to a health post is hard. It’s very expensive.
Bill Gates
I have an infamously low capacity for visualizing relationships, which made the study of geometry and all subjects derived from it impossible for me.
Sigmund Freud
The small man builds cages for everyone he knows While the sage, who has to duck his head when the moon is low, Keeps dropping keys all night long For the beautiful rowdy prisoners.
What is concerning is that work in the informal sector is characterised by vulnerability, low wages and no rights. So it is not the way that we lift people out of poverty in Africa.
Winnie Byanyima
Low price is a great way to sell a commodity. That’s not marketing though, that’s efficiency.
Seth Godin
I sing the hymn of the conquered, who fell in the Battle of Life,-The hymn of the wounded, the beaten, who died overwhelmed in the strife….The hymn of the low and the humble, the weary, the broken in heart,Who strove and who failed, acting bravely a silent and desperate part.
William Wetmore Story
After working so hard on the court, I find that snacks help me avoid late-afternoon energy lows.
Venus Williams
I spent years working in low-budget horror films. When you’ve done ‘Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death,’ you can handle anything!
Adrienne Barbeau
The Democratic Party has lost much of it credibility with working class and low-income people. It retards progress toward presenting a genuine alternative.
Paul Wellstone
Art should be as inclusive as possible. That’s why I like bringing the low form of puppetry and elevating it into a sculpture form, but it’s still a puppet also.
Wayne White
Greenwich Village… the village of low rents and high arts.
O. Henry
Trials make the promise sweet, Trials give new life to prayer; Trials bring me to His feet, Lay me low, and keep me there.
William Cowper
Our kids are in a little band, and they like to play video games, and my wife and I do our best to live a low-key, non-Hollywood kind of life.
Justin Chambers
I always had a penchant for falling in love. Every time I found myself without a mate, I fell into a state of low-sizzling panic.
Jane Fonda
I think audiences ultimately want something new. I think the business model for a franchise is such that it’s very low risk because you have data and studios love data.
Gore Verbinski
Even the existence of this corporeal element, low as it in reality is, because it is the source of death and all evils, is likewise good for the permanence of the Universe and the continuation of the order of things, so that one thing departs and the other succeeds.
We don’t give federal grants to tobacco companies to teach students ‘low-risk’ forms of smoking on the grounds that ‘kids are going to smoke anyway.’ We shouldn’t be giving federal grants to groups that sell contraception, to teach kids to use contraception.
Jennifer Morse
One of the most difficult things to learn is to render service without bossing, without making a fuss about it, and without any consciousness of high and low. In the world of spirituality, humility counts at least as much as utility.
Meher Baba
When I was a child, science fiction was the first source I’ve found for information. Science fiction was a very very low cultural stream in those days. It was completly below the radar and no one bothered to censurate it.
William Gibson
Worldly ambition is founded on pride or envy, but emulation, or laudable ambition, is actually founded in humility; for it evidently implies that we have a low opinion of our present attainments, and think it necessary to be advanced.
Joseph Hall
Low comedies are written for the drawing-room, the kitchen and the stable, and if you cut out the kitchen and the stable the drawing-room can’t support the play by itself.
Mark Twain
When a woman wears a low-cut gown, what does she expect you to do: look or not look?
William Feather
Girl Scouts is such an iconic organization that it’s easy to overlook how daring an idea it was for founder Juliette Gordon Low to gather those first 18 girls in that troop in Savannah, Georgia. It was 1912, after all, and women wouldn’t earn the right to vote for another eight years.
Anna Maria Chavez
I really kind of set the bar really low, so I don’t get disappointed.
Natalie Maines
When I have an idea, I turn down the flame, as if it were a little alcohol stove, as low as it will go. Then it explodes and that is my idea.
Ernest Hemingway
It’s kind of a tricky subject because I had a great time in WWE. There were highs and lows, but I cut my teeth there. I met my wife there.
Cody Rhodes
Death never mattered at those times – in the early days I even used to pray for it: the shattering annihilation that would prevent for ever the getting up, the putting on of clothes, the wathchign her torch trail across to the opposite side of the common like the tail-light of a low car driving away.
Graham Greene
I believe that everyone experiences depression to some degree at some time in their lives. And there are probably millions of people who live with a low level of sadness and heaviness day in and day out.
Joyce Meyer
I think there is a huge difference between writers who have very big sales, and writers who have small sales. Even writers with very high reputations, even Nobel prize winners, often sell in very low figures.
Kazuo Ishiguro
I try not to think about that [getting Oscar] ahead of time. You just try to do the best work you can, and then you get the movie out there, and we’ve been hearing good things. But you never know, you don’t want to get too high, and you don’t want to get too low.
Denzel Washington
Mirth, and even cheerfulness, when employed as remedies in low spirits, are like hot water to a frozen limb.
Benjamin Rush
The reason is that Chile is the brightest spot in Latin America. It has very fast growth, low unemployment. It privatized its Social Security system, which we in USA were unable to do.
Allan H. Meltzer
Oft, on a plat of rising ground, I hear the far-off curfew sound Over some wide-watered shore, Swinging low with sullen roar.
John Milton
Muslim organisations tend to have a low level of organisation. The communities in Europe are quite diverse.
Gijs de Vries
Confronting a stadium audience, you can’t see the whites of their eyes. It’s just an amorphous mass of noise and, of course, you can’t see the alleged billions watching at home either, so the degree to which you are intimidated is quite low.
Rowan Atkinson
Being a creative person, I want to feel the highs and the lows.
I’ve seen a lot of highs and a lot of lows with this team, and one thing I’ve learned is that even though you have lows, you’re not going to have them forever, so you’ve got to keep fighting.
(on the Los Angeles Galaxy)
Cobi Jones
You know well I couldn’t bear to live with a low common man after you two; and it’s wicked and cruel of you to insult me by pretending I could.
George Bernard Shaw
The people of the United States don’t recognize it, but the oil industry has given the greatest gift to the people of the nation, and that gift is the low cost of energy. Bottom line is this enables the country to be very competitive manufacturing-wise and in the world economy.
Ray L. Hunt
Whoever, with an earnest soul,
Strives for some end from this low world afar,
Still upward travels though he miss the goal,
And strays–but towards a star.
Henry Bulwer, 1st Baron Dalling and Bulwer
Our agricultural economy in the Hudson Valley continues to face historically low prices and producer income, as well as losses due to weather and other disasters.
Sue Kelly
The reason I took Early Edition – besides the fact that I liked it – was that it enabled me to start a production company in New York City. It’s a low-budget film company to produce and direct movies.
Fisher Stevens
I produce for a low price and I sell it on my own to 80 countries.
Uwe Boll
For the primary and secondary school years, we will aid public schools serving low-income families and assist students in both public and private schools.
Lyndon B. Johnson
Protect everything, detect everything, contain everything – obsessional society. Save time. Save money. Save our souls – phobic society. Low tar. Low energy. Low calories. Low sex. Low speed – anorexic society.
Jean Baudrillard
I play in the low 80s. If it’s any hotter than that, I won’t play.
Joe E. Lewis
I’d love to take a year off and travel the world under the radar. I would love to do it really low key. I wouldn’t need to stay in fancy hotels or anything; I just want to explore – but I don’t know how I’d do it. Would I shave my head to try and go incognito? Ha ha! I’m not telling.
Zac Efron
I wish I could show you what a small marihuana cigarette can do to one of our degenerate Spanish-speaking residents. That’s why our problem is so great; the greatest percentage of our population is composed of Spanish-speaking persons, most of who are low mentally, because of social and racial conditions.
Harry J. Anslinger
A low-energy policy allows for a wide choice of life-styles and cultures. If, on the other hand, a society opts for high energy consumption, its social relations must be dictated by technocracy and will be equally degrading whether labeled capitalist or socialist.
Ivan Illich
Actor of the low IQ, let’s hear your view.
Jethro Tull
Could she fall so low? No, there were limits, and she believed she still knew where some of them were.
Katherine Anne Porter
I fear very much for our kids, for low income people and for seniors.
Bernie Sanders
I know how it feels to be completely alone and helpless, and the last thing you want to hear in that situation is, ‘It’s going to be OK.’ “The only thing that seems to really help is that someone else who has felt that low expressing those feelings to you.
Amy Lee
I was pretty nervous when I met Robert DeNiro. I kind of felt like a kid in a candy store for the first time. I couldn’t wipe the grin off of my face. But Bobby DeNiro was really, really sweet and made me feel very comfortable. He’s very low-key and just a superstar professional, and totally someone to be admired.
Yvonne Strahovski
I surrendered my moral conscience to the fact that I was a soldier, and therefore a cog in a relatively low position of a great machine.
Otto Ohlendorf
I swim, I do Pilates, I meditate – I think it’s about keeping your stress level as low as you can.
John Stamos
The United States must keep a low profile in Vietnam so we can negotiate its neutralization like we did in Laos .
Roger Hilsman
Everything I know now . . . the pitfalls, the highs and lows, everything . . . it taught me and made stronger.
Ray Allen
Keep salaries low and equity high. Keep the organization as flat as you can.
Sam Altman
I would guess that there’s adequate low-income housing in the country.
Dan Quayle
I try to let my highs not be too high and my lows not be too low. And I do that just because I try to control my emotions.
Luol Deng
Well, I think they’re all basically the same story. Every culture in the world has them. When you strip it down and analyze it, it’s the young man or girl who goes through a trial or ordeal and hits a very low ebb but manages to get guidance from a Merlin type figure.
Liam Neeson
My weight does fluctuate, and there are extreme highs and lows in my blood sugar, so there is some worry about diabetes.
Joey Chestnut
Content may dwell in all stations. To be low but above contempt may be high enough to be happy.
Thomas Browne
I’m used to very low-budget situations. In ‘The Exploding Girl,’ we were literally changing in Starbucks because we didn’t have trailers.
Zoe Kazan
Darwin found out that when you took horses up to the high country in the Middle East, they would then grow long hair after a season or two. But when you took them – these long-haired horses – back into the low, hot country, they wouldn’t get rid of the long hair, just in case, for about four generations.
L. Ron Hubbard
You couldn’t make a cheap drama. That would be too low-budget. Drama has to have good photography and well-known actors.
Bruce Campbell
I don’t know a high C from a low C.
Brett Somers
Your high points and your low points. High points don’t last that long, it’s a high and it happens. It’s great at the moment but you really can’t live on it.
Ric Ocasek
All that stock of arguments [the skeptics] produce to depreciate our faculties, and make mankind appear ignorant and low, are drawn principally from this head, to wit, that we are under an invincible blindness as to the true and real nature of things.
George Berkeley
If people are not laughing at your dreams at least once a week, you are aiming too low!
Robin Sharma
Happiness, I have grasped, is a destination, like strawberry Fields. Once you find the way in, there you are, and you’ll never feel low again.
Rachel Simon
An egotist is a person of low taste – more interested in himself than in me.
Ambrose Bierce
Oh, the stoop of the Redeemer’s amazing love! Let us, henceforth, contend how low we can go side by side with Him, but remember when we have gone to the lowest He descends lower still, so that we can truly feel that the very lowest place is too high for us, because He has gone lower still.
Charles Spurgeon
Not necessity, not desire – no, the love of power is the demon of men. Let them have everything – health, food, a place to live, entertainment – they are and remain unhappy and low-spirited: for the demon waits and waits and will be satisfied.
Friedrich Nietzsche
If you are ever completely satisfied with something you have written, you are setting your sights too low. But if you can’t let go of your material even after you have done the best that you can with it, you are setting your sights too high.
Terry Brooks
I grew up with low self-esteem. I didn’t think I was very pretty. I had glasses, red hair and was generally quite a spod.
Mark Gatiss
I feel helpless, hopeless, too low to call out, too weak to think. Impotent tears dribble down.
Elizabeth Smart
Birds are the most accomplished aeronauts the world has ever seen. They fly high and low, at great speed, and very slowly. And always with extraordinary precision and control.
David Attenborough
I still get very high and very low in life. Daily. But I’ve finally accepted the fact that sensitive is just how I was made, that I don’t have to hide it and I don’t have to fix it. I’m not broken.
Glennon Melton
Oh yeah – for sure – hardly a week doesn’t go by when I don’t hear something wonderful that someone has made in some low-budget situation, primarily with a view to selling a few hundred copies at their concerts.
David Knopfler
We have built for this world a family mansion, and the next a family tomb. The best works of art are the expression of man’s struggle to free himself from this condition, but the effect of our art is merely to make this low state comfortable and that higher state to be forgotten.
Henry David Thoreau
Risk is not inherent in an investment; it is always relative to the price paid. Uncertainty is not the same as risk. Indeed, when great uncertainty – such as in the fall of 2008 – drives securities prices to especially low levels, they often become less risky investments.
Seth Klarman
I spent many a summer early morning with the radio very low, half sleeping and half listening.
Frankie Valli
Entities have died, but what they seek is life again. They miss it. They want to experience food again, basic things. They are low on the evolutionary scale. They want to experience the joy of destroying something.
Frederick Lenz
Bottoms in the investment world don’t end with four-year lows; they end with 10- or 15-year lows.
Jim Rogers
My doctors told me this morning my blood pressure is down so low that I can start reading the newspapers.
Ronald Reagan
Everyone feels lost and low. It’s how a person acts that makes them different.
Veronica Rossi
I like guys who wear nice clothes, nice jeans, nice trainers – I hate skinny jeans and those T-shirts that are really low-cut.
Georgia Salpa
I can’t hurt any more than I’ve been hurt, I can’t cry any more than I’ve cried. I’ve been to the highest of highs and lowest of lows, so one day I’m going to find my middle ground and be happy.
Cheryl Cole
If you are a new startup company, try not to arouse the interest or suspicion of your competition; especially if they are a bigger company. They can crush you while you are still in your startup phase. Lie low while still strengthening your bottom line.
Richard Branson
I learned that you’re going to be tested in the NFL. There’s going to be highs, there’s going to be lows. You got to stay poised through it all.
Saquon Barkley
Low, a guy doesn’t fall in love with you and have you love him back then just throw it away. You’re too special. After being loved by you, he can’t completely forget. He’s haunted by it. I’d bet my life on it.” -Cage York
Abbi Glines
Rebukes are easy from our betters,
From men of quality and letters;
But when low dunces will affront,
What man alive can stand the brunt?
Jonathan Swift
If I was to say “I’ll only do movies,” then I’d struggle to find a varied career. My priority is an interesting career, that’s why I keep a low rent, I don’t go on big holidays, and I keep it very simple.
Rufus Sewell
I really didn’t care. I’d do something to somebody and walk in front of them the next day like it never happened. I had very very low value on my own life.
Bernard Hopkins
It’s a European Union of economic failure, of mass unemployment and of low growth.
Nigel Farage
I still have highs and lows, maybe I don’t cry salty tears as much.
Sarah Silverman
When you’re shooting a low-budget movie you’re never just the director: you’re also in the catering department, and hair and make-up and a part-time grip. I can’t even imagine the luxury of not having to keep an eye on every aspect of production while directing.
Amber Sealey
History will remember the inhabitants of this century as the people who went from Kitty Hawk to the moon in 66 years, only to languish for the next 30 in low Earth orbit. At the core of the risk-free society is a self-indulgent failure of nerve.
Buzz Aldrin
Sometimes people have to remind you to aim high. Most of us are afraid of aiming high for fear of failure and our biggest failure is that we aim too low.
Shai Agassi
Understanding our strengths, articulating our values, knowing where we belong — these are also essential to addressing one of the great challenges of organizations: improving the abysmally low productivity of knowledge workers.
Peter Drucker
Low stir of leaves and dip of oars And lapsing waves on quiet shores.
John Greenleaf Whittier
Do not aim low, you will miss the mark. Aim high and you will be on a threshold of bliss.
B.K.S. Iyengar
How could I do it, how could a person go that low? And I understand your question, to which I reply, Are you kidding? That’s nothing. I’d been much lower than that. And I expected to see myself do worse.
Denis Johnson
I’m a believer of destiny and I believe I’m destiny’s child. I’ve seen the highs and I’ve seen the lows and I believe things happen for a reason and always for the best.
Shilpa Shetty
I know very well that if you get men who are really, really swells, for that is what it is, Mr. Low, and pay them well enough, and so make it really an important thing, they can browbeat any judge and hoodwink any jury.
Anthony Trollope
Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!
Dr. Seuss
One living daily in the Way carries their head low and their eyes high; reserved in speech and possessing a kind heart, they steadfastly continue in their training efforts.
Mas Oyama
While Jeb Bush finds himself mired in the muck of an intramural fight in his own party over his remarks about the Iraq War, Hillary Clinton is sticking to the low-key strategy, and it looks like it`s working.
Chris Matthews
When you listen to someone sing from inside their head, their same mix, and you listen to their voice as loud as they like it, or the track of the band as low as they like it, you can really hear all of the nuances and the mistakes if there are any.
Adam Young
But now that foreign steel, and foreign cars, are moving into the United States in increased quantities at relatively low prices, the United States can no longer keep its business system fluid by inflation.
John Chamberlain
Swift calls discretion low prudence; it is high prudence, and one of the most important elements entering into either social or political life.
Edwin Hubbel Chapin
It seems to be a common denominator with a lot of comics, this low self-esteem thing.
Ray Romano
She is mine.’ Edward’s low voice was suddenly dark, not as composed as before. ‘I didn’t say I would fight fair.
Stephenie Meyer
To be an actor, a lot of times it’s a strange combination of high confidence and low self-esteem. Which is a weird combination to have, but I think it’s sort of very common among actors.
Kurt Fuller
I think comedy comes more from a low sense of self-esteem, and I certainly have that.
Craig Ferguson
The Fed’s low-interest policy not only encourages spending and borrowing, it discourages the one thing that best helps people raise themselves into higher economic classes — saving.
Mark Thornton
The appetite for more instant replay in the sport is very low.
Bud Selig
It is not coincidence that at Barcelona we have low-key lifestyles and we have been successful. We know we are football players and not movie stars.
Lionel Messi
I feel so low that instead of picking myself up I have to cut others down.
Pope Francis
The notion that college education is a cost-effective way to help poor, low-skill, unmarried mothers with high school diplomas or GEDs move up the economic ladder is just wrong.
Rick Santorum
Over last 30 odd years, Kashmir has seen many highs and lows when looked at from the perspective of the security scenario, infiltrations and militancy on the ground.
Mehbooba Mufti
There is going to come a day when everyone here is going to need keen observation and wit to ridicule George W. Bush. But when that day comes, all we’re going to have are tired puns and goofy looks. Because as you would say, we’re suffering from the soft bigotry of low expectorations.
Jon Stewart
During a term in office there are highs and lows, but what counts is that the goal is set as well as the means to achieve it, and the force we put into getting results.
Francois Hollande
I didn’t do very well at school, and I suppose I’ve always had this sense, you know that, of being average, so I’ve been a bit low on self-confidence in my ability.
Peter Hollingworth
There is nothing sinister in so arranging one’s affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible.
Learned Hand
The nature of the place…whether high or low, moist or dry, whether sloping north or south, or bearing tall trees or low shrubs…generally gives hint as to its inhabitants.
John James Audubon
By holding down natural wage growth in labor-intensive industries, immigration serves as a subsidy for low-wage, low-productivity ways of doing business, retarding technological progress and productivity growth.
Mark Krikorian
It was Sophie ( Sophie Arp Tauber, woman artist and later Arp’s wife) who, by the example of her work and her life, both of them bathed in clarity, showed me the right way. In her world, the high and the low, the light and the dark, the eternal and the ephemeral, are balanced in prefect equilibrium.
Hans Arp
Many poor and low-income women cannot afford to purchase contraceptive services and supplies on their own.
Louise Slaughter
An irresistable footnote: in 1971, pension fund managers invested a record 122% of net funds available in equities – at full prices they couldn’t buy enough of them. In 1974, after the bottom had fallen out, they committed a then record low of 21% to stocks.
Warren Buffett
The high cost of low living.
Ezra Taft Benson
Such lifestyle factors such as cigarette smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, little physical activity and low dietary calcium intake are risk factors for osteoporosis as well as for many other non-communicable diseases.
Gro Harlem Brundtland
Gone! gone forever!-like a rushing wave
Another year has burst upon the shore
Of earthly being-and its last low tones,
Wandering in broken accents in the air,
Are dying to an echo.
George D. Prentice
I felt very low. I had been unmasked only that morning by Jay Cee herself, and I felt now that all the uncomfortable suspicions I had about myself were coming true. After nineteen years of running after good marks and prizes and grants of one sort and another, I was letting up, slowing down, dropping clean out of race.
Sylvia Plath
The 20th Century approach to economics, resource depletion and over-consumption means we boom and bust until we bust more than we boom; that is precisely what is happening. In a low growth economy, the true meaning of resource efficiency in business and in everything we do is essential
Phil Harding
I’ve had my best times when trailing a Mainbocher evening gown across a sawdust floor. I’ve always loved high style in low company.
Anita Loos
The danger is not to set your goal too high and fail to reach it. It’s to set your goal too low and reach it
Georges St-Pierre
Bet on black. Buy low-debt or no-debt companies. When the economy is in trouble, these companies usually have enough cash on hand to stay out of trouble. And they seldom need to borrow when interest rates are high.
Nancy Dunnan
When I entered high school I was an A-student, but not for long. I wanted the fancy clothes. I wanted to hang out with the guys. I went from being an A-student to a B-student to a C-student, but I didn’t care. I was getting the high fives and the low fives and the pats on the back. I was cool.
Benjamin Carson
My land is bare of chattering folk; / the clouds are low along the ridges, / and sweet’s the air with curly smoke / from all my burning bridges.
Dorothy Parker
Thou breeze, That mak’st an organ of the mighty sea, Obedient to thy wilful phantasies, Provoke him not to scorn; but soft and low, As pious maid awakes her aged sire, On tiptoe stealing, whisper in his ear The tidings of the young god’s victory.
Hartley Coleridge
When popularity is your only goal, doing well in class is going to feature very low, if at all, on your priority list.
Arabella Weir
You have to deal with what you encounter. But you must not be reduced. And so a way not to be reduced is don’t whine! Don’t let the incidents which take place in life bring you low.
Maya Angelou
The natural effect of low interest is to increase trade and industry; because undertakings of every kind can be prosecuted with greater advantage.
Alexander Hamilton
Now hollow fires burn out to black,
And lights are fluttering low:
Square your shoulders, lift your pack
And leave your friends and go.
O never fear, lads, naught’s to dread,
Look not to left nor right:
In all the endless road you tread
There’s nothing but the night.
Alexander Pope
God is not a miser with his grace. Your cup may be low in cash or clout, but it is overflowing with mercy.
Max Lucado
We [US] can’t compete with low-wage countries in different parts of the world. We cannot compete with countries that play games with currencies or regulations. We can’t. We shouldn’t.
Tom Wolf
Don’t let the incidents which take place in life bring you low. And certainly don’t whine. You can be brought low, that’s OK, but don’t be reduced by them. Just say, ‘That’s life.’
Maya Angelou
One [television] program was an interminable exploration of the question: can a woman with a low I.Q. be happily married to a man with a high one? The answer seemed to be yes and no.
Kurt Vonnegut
To not follow the dharma, either intentionally or through lack of awareness, creates a very low level of attention. In this low level of attention we make all kinds of mistakes and we are unhappy no matter what good fortune befalls us.
Frederick Lenz
Neither money nor position can atone to me for low birth.
Anthony Trollope
The United States is more reliant on the technical systems. We’re more reliant on the critical infrastructure of the internet than any other nation out there. And when there’s such a low barrier to entering the domain of cyber-attacks we’re starting a fight that we can’t win.
Edward Snowden
I think moral outrage is born not of anger but of love. It comes from the highest in us, not from a low-level sense of anger or cynicism.
Marianne Williamson
America isn’t Congress. America isn’t Washington. America is the striving immigrant who starts a business, or the mom who works two low-wage jobs to give her kid a better life. America is the union leader and the CEO who put aside their differences to make the economy stronger.
Barack Obama
The peace and joy of the Christmas season was marred by a proclamation of a general strike of all the military forces of the world. Panic reigns in the hearts of all the patriots of every persuasion. Meanwhile, fears of universal disaster sank to an all-time low over the world.
Isaac Asimov
I myself feel that our country, for whose Constitution I fought in a just war, might as well have been invaded by Martians and body snatchers. Sometimes I wish it had been. What has happened, though, is that it has been taken over by means of the sleaziest, low-comedy, Keystone Cops-style coup d’etat imaginable.
Kurt Vonnegut
I refuse to follow the rules where society tries to control people with low self esteem.
Kanye West
Creatures extremely low in the intellectual scale may have conception. All that is required is that they should recognize the same experience again. A polyp would be a conceptual thinker if a feeling of ‘Hello! thingumbob again!’ ever flitted through its mind.
William James
