Anthony Macias

Upon the wharves of sorrow, and heard ring
The bell that calls us on; the sweet far thing.

It’s a very American illness, the idea of giving yourself away entirely to the idea of working in order to achieve some sort of brass ring that usually involves people feeling some way about you – I mean, people wonder why we walk around feeling alienated and lonely and stressed out.
David Foster Wallace

Carolyn Porco
I think ‘The Lord of the Rings’ holds perhaps a deeper place in people’s hearts than ‘The Hobbit’ the book does.

Let heart and voice, like bells of silver, ring, the comfort that this day doth bring.

I am incredibly, incredibly fortunate about the opportunities I’ve had. But at the same time, I’ve had plenty of opportunities to screw it up, too. Sometimes the most powerful thing you can say is ‘No…’ and not feel the need to do everything. It’s about doing what rings true to me.
America Ferrera

Nicholas Sparks
I go through different phases where there’s times of self-doubt, but when the bell rings and it’s time to throw down and I get another opponent in my face, I just go to work my best. I fight and usually it turns out well for me.

Frank Lebby Stanton
In the basement of 33 Himmel Street, Max Vandenburg could feel the fists of an entire nation. One by one they climbed into the ring to beat him down. They made him bleed. They let him suffer. Millions of them – until one last time, when he gathered himself to his feet.
Markus Zusak
I’d do the lifting, but I just got a manicure. And I notice you don’t have a manicure at all. Only thing noticeable about your hands is the missing tan on your ring finger that I don’t care about. -Lula
Janet Evanovich
Somewhere a bicycle bell rings. Somewhere else there’s a war on. Somewhere else people turn to shadows and powder in an instant and the streets turn to funnels and light the sky with their burning. Somewhere a war is over.

Big L
The surface below your feet is so special. It is not like a boxing ring, not like a wrestling mat, it’s its own thing, and when I am there, I am floating, I am moving with total freedom, I am free. And when you know, when you just know you are going to win, like I do, there is no better feeling.
Conor McGregor
Honour without profit is a ring on the finger.
George Herbert
Wrestling ultimately comes down to what happens when the bell rings, and it comes down to athleticism, storytelling, and characters – and what we’re doing in ‘Lucha Underground’ is the highest-quality wrestling out there.
John Morrison
Desperation, weakness, vulnerability – these things will always be exploited. You need to protect the weak, ring-fence them, with something far stronger than empathy.

ASAP Rocky
When the heart is cut or cracked or broken Do not clutch it Let the wound lie open Let the wind from the good old sea blow in to bathe the wound with salt and let it sting. Let a stray dog lick it Let a bird fly in the hole and sing a simple song like a tiny bell and let it ring.
Michael Leunig
I’m quite shocked by the recent British media stories about an alleged brawl between myself and Dereck Chisora. I am a professional prize fighter and let my fists do the talking only inside the ring. I don’t want to comment on Chisora’s psychological issues.
Wladimir Klitschko
Prayer pulls the rope below and the great bell rings above in the ears of God. Some scarcely stir the bell, for they pray so languidly. Others give but an occasional pluck at the rope. But he who wins with heaven is the man who grasps the rope boldly and pulls continuously, with all his might.
Charles Spurgeon

Claudia Winkleman
I loved ‘Star Wars’ as a kid, but I missed out on the experiences of seeing them for the first time. It was before my time, and ‘Lord of the Rings,’ that trilogy felt like something similar to what ‘Star Wars’ was for previous generations.
Evan Daugherty
Isn’t that ridiculous to show Peter standing at the gates of Heaven with a ring of keys? The doors are already unlocked for us, all we’ve got to do is walk in through the front gate!
David Berg
Integrity rings like fine glass. True, clear, and reassuring.
Pam Brown
When boxers are in the ring, they’re simple. It’s when the fight is over, that’s when the other fight, the real fight, begins. That’s the problem.

Zoey Deutch
I have a great deal of sympathy for reluctant readers because I was one. I would do anything to avoid reading. In my case, it wasn’t until I was 13 and discovered the ‘Lord of the Rings’ that I learned to love reading.
Rick Riordan
No matter how extreme things get, it still has that ring of truth about it that backs the characters – even though they’re despicable and what they’re doing isn’t right you still care for their fate.
Andy Serkis
I invented that little rhyme about ‘One Ring to rule them all’, I remember, in the bath one day.

The responsible treatment of this particular Ring of Power is not necessarily to toss it into the Cracks of Doom. But we have to come up with something rather quickly, or what we’ll get is the Land of Mordor.
Margaret Atwood
Don’t give up. Normally it is the last key on the ring which opens the door.

Sue Monk Kidd
Early, when I first started wrestling, I wanted to be a combination of Sting and the Ultimate Warrior. The Ultimate Warrior’s craziness and weird personality and Sting’s coolness and the way he carried himself to the ring. But then later on, when it came to physicality and athleticism, Shawn Michaels topped the cake.
Jeff Hardy
My people – before I was changed – they exchanged this as a sign of devotion. It’s a Claddagh ring. The hands represent friendship; the crown represents loyalty… and the heart… Well, you know… Wear it with the heart pointing towards you. It means you belong to somebody. Like this.
Joss Whedon
Even the implication that The Lord of the Rings is a mythic story about Western, white supremacy – regardless of the political leanings of anyone who tries to make that case – is a load of self-justifying, destructive horseshit.
Viggo Mortensen
I have to put my father over because he really taught me a lot, especially when it comes to out-of-the-ring psychology and how to react when you’re approached by fans after a show or in the airport. It might sound silly, but a lot of those things come into play when you’re playing a character.
Randy Orton
But time in only another liar, so go along the wall a little further: if blackberries prove bitter there’ll be mushrooms, fairy-ring mushrooms in the grass, sweetest of all fungi.
William Carlos Williams
Smoke Ring for My Halo was the first album I bought of Kurt’s Vile, and when I first listened to “Peeping Tomboy” I was really depressed and unemployed. But the lyrics are, “I don’t want to work. I don’t want to sit around all day frowning.” I was like, “Ah! Yes!”
Courtney Barnett
When the doorbell rings at three in the morning, it’s never good news.

Lucas Till
The name of our country, France, still rings out like a call to freedom.
Marine Le Pen

James Darren
I can’t sit around and wait for the telephone to ring.
Tony Curtis
Every once in a while a voice appears that cuts through it all. As Hemmingway said, ‘the truth has a certain ring to it.’ When you hear the voice of Billy Vaughn you will hear the voice of an American manthe type of American who produces a Navy SEAL.
Michael Savage
The Hebrew language… is the only glue which holds together our scattered bones. It also holds together the rings in the chain of time…. It binds us to those who built pyramids, to those who shed their blood on the ramparts of Jerusalem, and to those who, at the burning stakes, cried Shema Yisrael!
I. L. Peretz
Bad is the trade that must play fool to sorrow,
Ang’ring itself and others.
William Shakespeare

Shirley Manson
Doorbells are like a magic game,
Or the grab-bag at a fair —
You never know when you hear one ring
Who may be waiting there.
Rachel Field
It is true that in France, women put on less things. If they have a necklace, they don’t put on earrings; if they have nail polish, they don’t put on all their rings and all their bracelets.
Ines de La Fressange
when the phone rings I too would like to hear words that might ease some of this.
Charles Bukowski
Let him go, you filth! Let him go! You will not touch him again!

Wilfred Owen
I give thee all,-I can no more, Though poor the off’ring be; My heart and lute are all the store That I can bring to thee.
Charles Lamb
Lord of the Rings was something I always wanted to do. I read the book when I was about 25, and I was always hoping if it was ever made into a feature film that I would be involved in some way. And then I finally got it, and I was over the moon. It was fantastic news.
Sean Bean
Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunder-storm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols.
Thomas Mann
People’s hands fascinate me. It’s tempting to look at a businessman’s left hand and see if there’s an indentation from a missing wedding ring. Or maybe there’s a tan line and the skin is pressed down where’s he’s worked a ring off his finger.
Benedict Cumberbatch
I love to give the fans what they want. They’re what I miss most when I’m not wrestling. That time in the ring is like being in heaven for me.
Hulk Hogan
I keep saying I am an auto-didact, but I have a lot of outside influences. One I could cite is juggler Francis Brunn, who was the first man to throw ten rings in the air; he was really an amazing juggler who showed onstage the quest for perfection.
Philippe Petit
By some curious mischance, a couple of my plays managed to hit an area where commercial success was feasible. But it’s wrong to think I’m a commercial playwright who has somehow ceased his proper function. I have always been the same thing – which is not a commercial playwright. I’m not after the brass ring.
Edward Albee
If we provide the young with a strong foundation, we can leave behind a legacy substantially greater than most are able to bequeath. As for the women, the old adage that you invest in a woman, you invest in a generation, still rings true today.
Joyce Banda
Why did I like simpler songs? Just times change. This is one of the repeated things I hear: even though people will read different kinds of books, they don’t read Lord of the Rings when they’re 30 even though they did at 15.
Phil Collins
I don’t want records. I want a Super Bowl ring.
Randy Moss
I think that the idea of wanting to fight for your kids, but also knowing that your wife is probably better at it, is something that rings very true for me.

Leah Pipes
Floating upward through a confusion of dreams and memory, curving like a trout through the rings of previous risings, I surface. My eyes open. I am awake.
Wallace Stegner
There are two ways of making yourself stand out from the crowd. One is by having a job so big you can go home before the bell rings if you want to. The other is by finding so much to do that you must stay after the others have gone. The one who enjoys the former once took advantage of the latter.
Henry Ford
I was fascinated by ‘The Lord of the Rings’ from about the age of eight, and that lasted well into my teens.
Philip Reeve
The more Susan waited, the more the doorbell didn’t ring. Or the phone.

I’ve always been someone who’s kept my private life a little private. When there’s a ring on my finger, I’ll talk about it.
Priyanka Chopra
I would like to have the original ending to my Lord of the Rings instead of the one they released. In my original cut I had the victory at Helm’s Deep as the final sequence.
Ralph Bakshi
If you, my fellow copywriters or art directors, want to win the award, devote your genius to making the cash register ring.
David Ogilvy
Some people dye their hair yellow or put rings in their noses. I decided I wasn’t going to open an account. Put it the other way round – there was no reason that I should.
Bertie Ahern
Ring sense is an art, a gift from God that flows out of a fighter like a great painting flows out of an artist, or a great book flows out of an author.
Ray Arcel
I think ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy has a very satisfying ending, and there’s not really that deep of a mythological construct.
Damon Lindelof
I’m already yours. Always have been. All you have to do is step into the ring.
Jill Shalvis
I have three beautiful children and a World Series ring. That’s all I need.
Mark Teixeira
I can’t hear what Jeremy says because my ears are blocked with my two Stanley Cup Rings.
Patrick Roy
Although teachers do care and do work very, very hard, the institution is psychopathic-it has no conscience. It rings a bell and the young man in the middle of writing a poem must close his notebook and move to a different cell where he must memorize that humans and monkeys derive from a common ancestor.
John Taylor Gatto
I think even back as far as ‘Lord of the Rings,’ there was always the chance that ‘The Hobbit’ would be made, even way back then. Of course at that point, Peter Jackson didn’t probably think at that point that he’d be directing it.
Andy Serkis
The truth of anything at all doesn’t lie in someone’s account of it. It lies in all the small facts of the time. An advertisement in a paper, the sale of a house, the price of a ring.
Josephine Tey
The desert adapts. The people adapt. Live. Die. Struggle. Suffer. Create. The people in the real world beyond Demesne’s ring are not all manufactured perfection. They deal.
Rachel Cohn
When the fighters are in the ring, they want to dictate the pace. I want to dominate, so I want to impose to the other fighter my actions.
Tomoki Kameda
Many of us in our praying are like nasty little boys who ring front door bells and run away before anyone answers.
D. A. Carson
The world has changed. I see it in the water. I feel it in the Earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, For none now live who remember it.
J. R. R. Tolkien
There is no doubt that man is a competitive animal and there is no place where this fact is more obvious than in the ring. There is no second place. Either you win or you lose. When they call you a champion, it’s because you don’t lose. To win takes a complete commitment of mind and body.
Rocky Marciano
The backgrounds in Lord of the Rings are all explained.
Robbie Coltraine
It’s fine to be on the hamster wheel, running and running, trying to grab the brass ring or whatever you define as success, but your relationships, that’s really all that matters when it’s all said and done.
Katie Couric
There is a limit to enjoyment, though the sources of wealth be boundlessAnd the choicest pleasures of life lie within the ring of moderation.
Martin Farquhar Tupper
The low’ring element Scowls o’er the darken’d landscape.
John Milton
It seems that in Baltimore, one of the most violent cities in America, jurors are far more reluctant to convict criminal defendants than in the suburban enclaves that ring the city.
David Simon
Most directors prefer to direct everything themselves. I thought I could on Lord Of The Rings, but very quickly found out that the sheer scale prevented it.
Peter Jackson
I’m not a fighter, but I would love to be a boxer because I love the courage and toughness. I mean, there can be nothing more terrifying than walking into an arena and looking at Mike Tyson in the ring.
Mark McGrath
Be the day never so long, Evermore at last they ring to evensong.
John Heywood
Asking the director of ‘The Lord of the Rings’ to read my novel was exactly as terrifying as you’d think. I came this close to not doing it because I was so embarrassed. But he was so gracious about it.
Jeff Giles
A contract of eternal bond of love, Confirm’d by mutual joinder of your hands, Arrested by the holy close of lips, Strength’ned by the interchangement of your rings, And all the ceremony of this compact Seal’d in my function, by my testimony.
William Shakespeare

The G.O.P. is desperately seeking someone who can save the party from the fate of nominating Mitt Romney. But every time a non-Mitt throws his hat in the ring, the hat explodes.
Gail Collins
Daughter of Jove, relentless power, Thou tamer of the human breast, Whose iron scourge and tort’ring hour The bad affright, afflict the best!
Thomas Gray
By constant dripping, water hollows stone,
A signet-ring from use alone grows thin,
And the curved plowshare by soft earth is worn.
And all the woods are alive with the murmur and sound of Spring,
And the rose-bud breaks into pink on the climbing briar,
And the crocus-bed is a quivering moon of fire
Girdled round with the belt of an amethyst ring.
Oscar Wilde
My numbers are better than Troy Aikman, but he has Super Bowl rings and he’s played with Hall of Famers as well.
Donovan McNabb
It’s not what you say or how you act. At the end of the day, when all is said and done, it’s what you do when the bell rings that really matters.
Carlos Condit
Our rural ancestors, with little blest, Patient of labor when the end was rest, Indulged the day that housed their annual grain, With feasts, and off’rings, and a thankful strain.

I give my all to you
Now and my whole life through
With this ring
Clyde Otis
My hat is in the ring.
Theodore Roosevelt
Studio execs were like, ”Lord of the Rings!’ People want to see sword-and-dragon-type things!’ No, people just want to see great stories. Hollywood always takes the wrong lesson from successes.
Kumail Nanjiani
My perfect last meal would be: shrimp cocktail, lasagna, steak, creamed spinach, salad with bleu cheese dressing, onion rings, garlic bread, and a dessert of strawberry shortcake.

Adolph Malan
Every time you hear a bell ring, it means that some angel’s just got his wings.
Frances Goodrich
Genius resembles a bell; in order to ring it must be suspended into pure air, and when a foreign body touches it, its joyful toneis silenced.
Franz Grillparzer
Neither rings, bright chains, nor bracelets, perfumes, flowers, nor well-trimmed hair, Grace a man like polished language, th’ only jewel he should wear.
Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.
J. R. R. Tolkien
I love, love, love fantasy, like ‘Lord of the Rings’ and things like that.
Molly Quinn
But by faith you look in the mirror and see a robed prodigal bearing the ring of grace on your finger and the kiss of your Father on your face.
Max Lucado
It is a temptation for me to wear all my rings at once.
Anna Held
Trees for example, carry the memory of rainfal. In their rings we read ancient weather – storms, sunlight and temperatures, the growing seasons of centuries. A forest shares a history which each tree remembers even after it has been felled.
Anne Michaels
Dad!” he shouted, loud enough to make my ears ring. “Dad! You need to get down here!” (Derek) Chloe held open the door and whispered to me, “I could say he’s not always like this, but I’d be lying.

Lillian Gish may be a charming person, but she is not Ophelia. She comes on stage as if she had been sent for to sew rings on the new curtains.
Mrs. Patrick Campbell
His breath is so bad why every time he smokes he blows onion rings.
Rodney Dangerfield
And some things that should not have been forgotten were lost. History became legend. Legend became myth. And for two and a half thousand years, the ringп»ї passed out of all knowledge.
J. R. R. Tolkien
To get an Oscar would be an incredible moment in my career, there is no doubt about that. But the Lord of the Rings films are not made for Oscars, they are made for the audience.
Peter Jackson
I will teach you how to behave yourself in the ring.
Wladimir Klitschko
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
J. R. R. Tolkien
The spleen is seldom felt where Flora reigns;
The low’ring eye, the petulance, the frown,
And sullen sadness, that o’ershade, distort,
And mar the face of beauty, when no cause
For such immeasurable woe appears;
These Flora banishes, and gives the fair
Sweet smiles, and bloom less transient than her own.
William Cowper
It comes down to the experience of it. The more you fight, the more you know, the more you can use in the ring.
Channing Tatum
One thing I want to do is create something called Ring Around Congress. It would be a state deal and also a national thing, where the kids, as a field trip, will go and join hands around Congress and give the politicians report cards on how they’re voting on hunger issues.
Jeff Bridges
Past humanity is not only implicit in each new man born but is contained in him. Humanity is an ever-widening spiral and life is the beam that plays briefly on each succeeding ring. All humanity from its beginning to its end is already present but the beam has not yet played beyond you.
Flann O’Brien
Do not meddle in the affairs of Wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger.
J. R. R. Tolkien
There live a great man named Joe
who was belittled by a loudmouth foe.
While his rival would taunt and tease
Joe silently bore the stings.
And then fought like gladiator in the ring.
Muhammad Ali
I shall write a book some day about the appropriateness of names. Geoffrey Chaucer has a ribald ring, as is proper and correct, and Alexander Pope was inevitably Alexander Pope. Colley Cibber was a silly little man without much elegance and Shelley was very Percy and very Bysshe.
James Joyce
What if someone gave a war & Nobody came? / Life would ring the bells of Ecstasy and Forever be Itself again.
Carl Sandburg
I auditioned for ‘The Lord of the Rings,’ I auditioned for the part of Sam, and I didn’t get very far… they wanted people that were taller and alter them in Computer Generated Images, so I never got a call back.
Aron Eisenberg
The choicest pleasures of life lie within the ring of moderation.
Benjamin Disraeli
Poetry is no more a narcotic than a stimulant; it is a universal bittersweet mixture for all possible household emergencies and its action varies accordingly as it is taken in a wineglass or a tablespoon, inhaled, gargled or rubbed on the chest by hard fingers covered with rings.
Robert Graves
You might be a redneck if you can tell your age by the number of rings in the bathtub.
Jeff Foxworthy
I had saved a few hundred photos of dodo skeletons into my ‘Creative Projects’ folder – it’s a repository for my brain, everything that I could possibly be interested in. Any time I have an Internet connection, there’s a sluice of stuff moving into there, everything from beautiful rings to cockpit photos.
Adam Savage
I hate short hair on men – the ‘real’ man is something I don’t know. My dad was always playing with hairbands, making rings, while the women were wearing jeans, white T-shirts and Converse. That was the uniform at home.
Lou Doillon
Our daughter’s name Arwynn comes from Arwen in ‘Lord of the Rings’ because my wife and I met for the first time in the Eagle and Child pub in Oxford where J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis used to go to read out their stories to one another.
Adrian McKinty
We’ve got rings, glasses, we wear things for armor, for protection from the elements, to signal our status to other people. And we’re going to co-opt a lot of those things, where wearables are going to end up being the interface between us in the world.
Astro Teller
When the bell rings in between the ropes, I’m in charge. No one can touch me. That’s my time, no one can touch me.
Shawn Spears
I find that when you read a script, or rewrite something, or look at something that’s been gone over, you can tell, like rings on a tree, by how bad it is, how long it’s been in development.
Joss Whedon
I did the one concert, and I was not bitten by the conducting bug, and I thought I was done, but then the phone started to ring, and gradually, over time, I started conducting more and more. Now a third of my performances are with orchestras.
Bobby McFerrin
The only thing nicer than a phone that didn’t ring all the time (or indeed at all) was six phones that didn’t ring all the time (or indeed at all).
Douglas Adams
My family’s a huge fan of ‘Lord of the Rings.’ My dad probably preaches from ‘Lord of the Rings’ as much as he does the Bible.
Sarah Drew
I see a lot of ugly rings on people and I think, eew, I wouldn’t want that. Some of them are so gaudy with so many different diamonds on them. I’d want something very clean.
Bridget Marquardt
My philosophy has always been to try to put myself into roles and films that are different. That intensified after ‘Lord of the Rings’ because it was so massive, but it’s something I’ve always believed in – wanting to change people’s perceptions and challenge myself as an actor.
Elijah Wood
Bright is the ring of words When the right man rings them.
Robert Louis Stevenson
The birth and rebirth of all nature, / The passing of winter and spring, / We share with the life universal, / Rejoice in the magical ring.
Doreen Valiente
A Spaniard will seek to persuade you that the bull-ring is an institution got up chiefly for the benefit of the bull.
Jerome K. Jerome
Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot… But what of the man? I know his name was Guy Fawkes and I know, in 1605, he attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament.
Alan Moore
Once I was checking to hotel and a couple saw my ring with Blues on it. They said, ‘You play blues. That music is so sad.’ I gave them tickets to the show, and they came up afterwards and said, ‘You didn’t play one sad song.’
Buddy Guy
A book collection is a cross between a Rorschach test and This Is Y our Life. It marks your life clearly like rings on a tree.
Margo Kaufman
Why do I beat a lot of people? Because I love it so much, that’s why.  Everything about Jiu Jitsu, I love it – the school, the mat, the ring.  I always believe that.  Maybe I am not better than my opponent, but I know for sure I love my training more.
Marcelo Garcia
Life is a circus ring, with some moments more spectacular than others.
Janusz Korczak
when I was four I almost fell down the shaft of a tin mine and when I was five the car rolled over on the motorway and when I was seven we went on holiday and the gas ring blew out in the caravan and nobody noticed I’ve been dying all my life
Jenny Downham
He doesn’t pretend,” the punk pixie said. He nodded toward Doyle. “Nice rings. You got anything else pierced?” “Yes,” Doyle said. The boy smiled, making the rings in the edge of his nose and his bottom lip curl cheerfully with it. “Me too,” he said.
Laurell K. Hamilton
Luckily for you, you can close the book The Postman Always Rings Twice and break out of it, and James M. Cain can’t. I can’t think of any redeeming feature he has, but he’s extremely compelling.
Jonathan Dee
My own dear love, he is strong and bold And he cares not what comes after. His words ring sweet as a chime of gold, And his eyes are lit with laughter. He is jubilant as a flag unfurled – Oh, a girl, she’d not forget him. My own dear love, he is all my world – And I wish I’d never met him.
Dorothy Parker
[Being alcoholic] you’re either too high or you’re too low. I mean, I was always looking for the bell to ring. I was always waiting for that bell.
Van Morrison
If this was The Lord of the Rings and I had a smart British voice like Cate Blanchett, I could tell you the background of the events of that fall in a really suspenseful way. And you’d be straining to hear the rest.
Charlaine Harris
When I think of the great artists that I admire, they always had something, whether it be their hair, rings, or whatever.
Luke James
The impossible lives next door to the possible; people ring its door bell by accident all the time.
Tibor Fischer
Interpreting the dance: young women in white dancing in a ring can only be virgins; old women in black dancing in a ring can only be witches; but middle-aged women in colors, square dancing…?
Mason Cooley
Wives are people who think it’s against the law not to answer the phone when it rings.
Rita Rudner
People look at me, and they have a certain perception, and they slap a label on me. The guy you saw in a wrestling ring is not who I am.
Dave Bautista
I played ball in college and semi-professional, and aside from the game and all that, the most valuable thing is the relationships. Who can care how many rings you have or how many championships you’ve won or how many records you broke. The most valuable stuff is the intangible stuff.
Lamman Rucker
We can’t go in the ring and think opponent is going to be like that from the last knockout. We don’t know how he is personally. We have to go in there and wait and wait and wait and see what he has because he is still a dangerous opponent.
Brandon Rios
The worst injury I have ever suffered in the ring was a torn triceps; they had to take a piece of my hamstring to repair the tear. It was brutal; I was out for 6 months.
Dave Bautista
A hippo sandwich is easy to make. All you do is simply take one slice of bread, one slice of cake, some mayonnaise, one onion ring, one hippopotamus, one piece of string, a dash of pepper. That ought to do it. And now comes the problem… biting into it!
Shel Silverstein
My first score for ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy, ‘The Fellowship of the Ring,’ was the beginning of my journey into the world of Tolkien, and I will always hold a special fondness for the music and the experience.
Howard Shore
The situation right after the fight wasn’t too good; I believe I’m still the only champion in the world who never received the belt inside the ring once you’ve won the title. I held that against the English fans for a long time but I felt that also motivated me.
Marvin Hagler
I feel when I say I can do something and carry this opportunity to make movies, it’s because I took the time to study it. A boxer can’t just jump in the ring. You’ve got to practice and practice and practice.
The tap’ring pyramid, the Egyptian’s pride, And wonder of the world, whose spiky top Has wounded the thick cloud.
Robert Blair
I’ve never made $20 million. I’m scared. I don’t know if you gave me The Ring if I could carry it and bring it to Ozamorph, or whatever you call it.
Joaquin Phoenix
I laugh a lot in the ring when I’В’m having fun.
Ric Flair
The religion is a personal thing in my life and fighting in the ring, it’s boxing. It’s my profession. God always gives me strength.
Manny Pacquiao
Everyone can have a rough day at the office, as they say. I’ve had those myself many times when the bell rings.
Stone Cold Steve Austin
I remove my wedding rings and put them in the jewelry box. So many others have done this. I am not the only one. I am not the only one. But here, I am the only one.
Elizabeth Berg
Imagine all human beings swept off the face of the earth, excepting one man. Imagine this man in some vast city, New York or London. Imagine him on the third or fourth day of his solitude sitting in a house and hearing a ring at the door-bell!
Thomas Bailey Aldrich
Elijah Wood from Lord Of The Rings can’t get married with a girl named Holly beacause it would make Holly Wood get it HOLLYWOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Joel Madden
Mental toughness must be developed before you start fighting because you don’t want to be that guy who quits in the ring.
Forrest Griffin
You may think you are going against a certain style and then guys don’t fight like they always fight. People change in the ring.
Orlando Salido
Say to your own minds, “I am He, I am He”. Let it ring day and night in your minds like a song, and at the point of death declare : “I am He”. That is truth; the infinite strength of the world is yours.
Swami Vivekananda
For years my wedding ring has done its job. It has led me not into temptation. It has reminded my husband numerous times at parties that it’s time to go home. It has been a source of relief to a dinner companion. It has been a status symbol in the maternity ward.
Erma Bombeck
‘Lord of the Rings’ was 2001, 2002, and 2003, but Twitter didn’t start until 2007!
Sean Astin
If I wanted to order a ring for myself, the inscription I should choose would be: “Nothing passes away.” I believe that nothing passes away without leaving a trace, and that every step we take, however small, has significance for our present and our future existence.
Anton Chekhov
I think my body went through a lot, went through the wringer. In terms of being inside the ring, getting hit, but also outside the ring, living a crazy life.
Oscar De La Hoya
There’s nothing in the world more silent than the telephone the morning after everybody pans your play. It won’t ring from room service; your mother won’t be calling you. If the phone has not rung by 8 in the morning, you’re dead.
David Mamet
What I know about Mike Tyson, I see in the boxing ring. As far as all of the gossip stuff that I hear about him, I know first hand to take that with a grain of salt.
Gerald McRaney
That’s the great thing about a tractor. You can’t really hear the phone ring.
Jeff Foxworthy
The Tolkien estate owns the writings of Professor Tolkien. ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings’ were sold by Professor Tolkien in the late ’60s, the film rights.
Peter Jackson
The thing about Green Lantern rings is they pick whoever has potential to overcome great fear.
Geoff Johns
Freedom rings where opinions clash.
Adlai Stevenson I
i feel my fear moving away in rings through time for a million years.
Breece D’J Pancake
I’d already started directing short films when we were doing ‘Lord of the Rings,’ then videogame projects. So Peter’s known that I’ve been heading towards directing for a long time. But I always thought my first outing would be a couple of people and a digital camera in the back streets of London somewhere!
Andy Serkis
Like I always say – be where you’re at. For me, that means that when I’m home with my family and the phone rings with a number I don’t recognize, I don’t pick it up; it could be an important call, or it could be a radio interview that I would usually make time for.
Mark Schlereth
No physical activity is so vain as boxing. A man gets into the ring to attract admiration. In no sport, therefore, can you be more humiliated.
Norman Mailer
As a kid, Terry Bradshaw didn’t amaze me. My hero was Steelers backup Terry Hanratty, who nabbed two Super Bowl rings while completing three passes.
Stephen Rodrick
End? No, the journey doesn’t end here. Death is just another path… One that we all must take.
J. R. R. Tolkien
If I choose to come in this ring and walk over here and stand infront of the bald wonder twins and beat the living crap out of you, I can.
Triple H
I had a Chicago Street Fight a couple of years back in Ring of Honor that was really bloody and really violent. That is probably the closest thing to the Extreme Elimination Chamber I can think of.
CM Punk
My phone rings, they call me up and say, ‘Chael, your testosterone level is too high.’ I say, ‘Well, how high was it?’ They say, ‘0.7.’ I said, ‘What’s normal?’ They say, ‘0.6.’; I said, ‘One-tenth? You’re telling me I’m one-tenth higher than the average man? Re-test that – you must have caught me on a low day.’
Chael Sonnen
Music is trying to tell a story, and I love the rock vibe. Hearing that finished product is almost the same high as having a killer wrestling match, you’re just doing it with a guitar instead of a partner in the ring.
Jeff Hardy
Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am all about money. I mean, just look how well my line of zodiac-inspired toe rings and homeopathic children’s medications are selling on Home Shopping Network.
Tina Fey
The Lord of the Rings is of course a fundamentally religious and Catholic work; unconsciously so at first, but consciously in the revision.
J. R. R. Tolkien
The first thing I did when I sold my book was buy a new wedding ring for my wife and asked her to marry me all over again.
Nicholas Sparks
We put our body and minds and lives on the line for being in that ring for the fans, that’s why I respect fighters. Unless they don’t respect me then I can’t give any respect back.
Nonito Donaire
To call me in, I’m thinking I don’t own a suit, a ring, a watch, a cellphone. I’m dragging up out of the woods here. You boys must be hard up these days.
Phil Robertson
I’m a failure as a woman. My men expect so much of me, because of the image they’ve made of me- and that I’ve made of myself- as a sex symbol. They expect bells to ring and whistles to whistle, but my anatomy is the same as any other woman’s and I can’t live up to it.
Marilyn Monroe
You can’t go into the ring and be a nice guy. I would go a month, two months, without having sex. It worked for me because it made me a vicious animal. You can’t fight if you have any compassion or anything like that.
Jake LaMotta
It is mine to give to whom I will, like my heart.
J. R. R. Tolkien
The first thing I learned in boxing is to not get hit. That’s the art of boxing. Execute your opponent without getting hit. In sports school we were putting our hands behind our backs and having to defend ourselves with our shoulders, by rolling, by moving round the ring, moving out feet.
Wladimir Klitschko
My very, very first moment on set on ‘Lord of the Rings’ in 2000 was me in a lycra suit, six and a half thousand feet up on a mountain in New Zealand, standing in front of 250 crew who were all wondering what I was doing – myself included.
Andy Serkis
The only thing on my mind now is getting that World Series ring.
Gary Carter
I loved the ‘Lord of the Rings’ books, ‘The Hobbit.’ And my parents, they still don’t understand it because they hate fantasy stuff. Neither of them are into it. So I don’t know where it comes from.
Matt Duffer
I had did so much to Larry [Holmes] in the ring that I made him respect me in the fight.
Michael Spinks
I don’t think I’ve ever quite grown out of it, actually. There was a point where I could recite some of those Elvish verses – which I’ve mercifully forgotten. But I can still, if really pushed, recite the text of the inside of the ruling ring in the language of Mordor.
Salman Rushdie
Cassandra wondered at the mind’s cruel ability to toss up flecks of the past. Why, as she neared her life’s end, her grandmother’s head should ring with the voices of people long since gone. Was it always this way? Did those with passage booked on death’s silent ship always scan the dock for faces of the long-departed?
Kate Morton
A philosopher who is not taking part in discussions is like a boxer who never goes into the ring.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
Books are, let’s face it, better than everything else. If we played Cultural Fantasy Boxing League, and made books go fifteen rounds in the ring against the best that any other art form had to offer, then books would win pretty much every time.
Nick Hornby
I came to hate the complainers, with their dry and crumbly lipsticks and their wrinkled rage and their stupid, flaccid, old-people sun hats with brims the breadth of Saturn’s rings.
Karen Russell
I remember when I wrote a piece, “Blood on the Fields,” it was a while ago, it was about slavery and about two characters, and I studied so much of music, I would always go back to the original documents, and as much as I can get original chants and slave chants and different type of beats and rhythms and ring shout.
Wynton Marsalis
I could not hear what they say about me, my 2 Stanley Cup rings were stuffed in my ears.
Patrick Roy
I can never say no – I hate saying no to anything – so whenever my agent rings up and says, ‘I’ve got a new job for you’ or my publicist says, ‘you’ve got to be here on this day,’ I’m always like, ‘yay, ok, great!’
Carrie Hope Fletcher
Ring up your parents and ring up your kids and tell them that you love them.
Stephen Daldry
Is it a man walking on the beach, winking at the girls and looking for going to bed? Is it someone who wears a lot of gold chains and rings and sits at the bar? Because this is not me! I am very, very Latin, but not so much lover.
Antonio Banderas
When Little Richard used to stand up and play it was just fabulous, and Liberace had the candlesticks and the rings and the gift of the gab. The piano’s is the most ungainly rock’ n’ roll instrument of all time but those two people transcended it, as did Jerry Lee Lewis.
Elton John
Scrivener can be a tricky beast to get your head around. When you do, a bell rings, and suddenly it all seems perfectly clear. But to reach that stage you have to understand what it can do, and try it out for yourself. Which can be daunting.
Antony Johnston
Far away, to an infinite world I escape. I’m clear and calm, I’m unafraid. Sunless days, in my sheltered milkyway. In Saturn’s rings I feel no pain.
Paula Cole
A television advertisement must illustrate the scientific method to substantiate any claim…. That is why stains are lifted, ring-around-the-collar is removed, paper towels become soaked, excess stomach acid is absorbed, and headaches go away-all during the commercial.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Glasses, earrings, rings, sneakers. I love every little accessory.
J Balvin
The phone rings. “Asshole,” she mutters. She picks it up. “Will you let me explain?” “No.” She hangs up.
Lisa McMann
Can we ring the bells backward? Can we unlearn the arts that pretend to civilize, and then burn the world? There is a march of science; but who shall beat the drums for its retreat?
Charles Lamb
I should wonder what courage—which is the virtue they most value—has to do with a metal ring through your nostril.
Veronica Roth
I call you once…you never dialed back.
Twice…you never dialed back.
Saturday morning, live, I’m on Soul Train, talkin’ to Don Cornelius.
Saturday night, my phone rings…
Saturday night, I won’t answer.
Saturday night, my phone rings again…
Saturday night, I don’t answer.
Kool Keith
The Bell never rings of itself; unless some one handles or moves it it is dumb.
[Lat., Nunquam aedepol temere tinniit tintinnabulum;
Nisi quis illud tractat aut movet, mutum est, tacet.]
I will not say, do not weep, for not all tears are an evil.
J. R. R. Tolkien
Marriage is like a golden ring in a chain, whose beginning is a glance and whose ending is eternity.
Khalil Gibran
The economic game is not supposed to be rigged like some shady ring toss on a carnival midway.
Arianna Huffington
The ring of a false coin is not more recognizable than that of a rhyme setting forth a false sorrow.
Thomas Bailey Aldrich
One of my biggest disappointments is watching the trailer for the second Lord of the Rings film and having Gandalf in it. Why? He died in the first one, why give it away in the trailer just to try and sell 1000 more seats? It’s daft.
Nick Frost
People in Nevada know me from the street to the ring to the Senate chambers. I’ve never had to prove my manhood to anyone.
Harry Reid
I formed a new group called Alcoholics-Unanimous. If you don’t feel like a drink, you ring another member and he comes over to persuade you.
Richard Harris
What does perfection look like to me? Championship rings
Kobe Bryant
When I step in the ring, I bring everything I have.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
I’ve had my ring since I was 12 years old. But for me it’s not something I want to go around saying, ‘Hey, look what I have’, It’s a promise I made to myself and God. I think some people misinterpret that as a trend and think everyone’s getting one.
Selena Gomez
Fight one more round. When your feet are so tired you have to shuffle back to the center of the ring, fight one more round.
James J. Corbett
One of my most sentimental items is my grandmother’s engagement ring that my mom gave me a few years ago. It’s a Victorian-style setting that’s closed in the back, so it doesn’t sparkle the way diamonds do now. I wear it as a pendant.
Georgina Chapman
I was talking to my father via phone from my hotel room when he said “I will call you right back” before he hung up. 10 minutes pass and the phone rings again. I thought it was him but it was a journalist telling me my father had died.
Juan Pablo Escobar
She’s wearing a ring that I bought on sale, and that makes her the property of this U.S. Male.
Jerry Reed
I’ll wire the International Federation of American Homing Pigeon Fanciers and give them the number stamped on the bird’s leg ring.
Carolyn Keene
I symbolized doping… My phone rarely rings. I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of riders who call me.
Richard Virenque
The circle, or ring, dance was seen as an earthly counterpart of the heavenly dance of the angels, which was itself a celebration of the resurrection.
Gerald Jonas
I always ask myself why old heavyweights come back, but I plan to stay out of the ring.
Lennox Lewis
The boundary between civilization and barbarism is difficult to draw: put one ring in your nose and you are a savage, put two rings in your ears and you are civilized.
Pearl S. Buck
I feel like Ive been engaged to the British Empire since 1980 and tonight you have given me the ring knighthood.
Steven Spielberg
I don’t like telephones: I don’t like when they ring. Just because it rings, you have to pick it up. I don’t even like opening mail; I’m weird.
Douglas Coupland
Demagogues are so easy to identify. They gesture a lot and speak with pulpit rhythms, using words that ring of religious fervour and god-fearing sincerity. Sincerity with nothing behind it takes so much practice. The practice can always be detected. Repetition. Great attempts to keep your attention on words.
Frank Herbert
You are a real champion. You talk a lot over the past six months and it is going to be great to show you inside the ring how it is better to resolve wars. Let’s talk in the office.
Vitali Klitschko
Remember that nothing is so damaging to self-esteem as waiting for a telephone or door-bell that doesn’t ring.
Marjorie Hillis
I remember watching Ring of Honor as a fan, going to shows in Philadelphia and New York, and I loved the guys. I thought these are some of the best wrestlers in the world, if not THE best.
Adam Cole
I won’t wear rings and jewelry on the stage because I don’t want you looking at my hands. I want you hearing what I’m saying.
Mavis Staples
Lord Of The Rings fandom was massive, worldwide, entrenched. Generally it had been part of the fans’ life all their life, because they had it read to them as children; they’d become Tolkien students.
John Noble
No rebounds, no rings.
Pat Riley
The Lord of the Rings movie set an entirely new standard for fantasy in the movies.
Sarah Zettel
If my body were a tree trunk, the rings would surely reveal the time it has had to mature.
Robert M. Hensel
A bell’s not a bell ’til you ring it, A song’s not a song ’til you sing it, Love in your heart wasn’t put there to stay, Love isn’t love ’til you give it away!
Oscar Hammerstein II
I look forward to continuing to be a role model to women across the country and helping them have confidence in all they do in the ring, on the court or in the game of life!
Marlen Esparza
Sometimes there’s more important things in life than being in the ring, like family, like us, & being in love.
Amy Dumas
Don’t think because there’s a ring on your finger, you needn’t try anymore.
Jack Jones
I want a love like Johnny and June
Rings of fire burnin’ with you
I wanna walk the line, walk the line
Til’ the end of time
I wanna love, love ya that much
Cash it on it give it all up
And baby when your gone I wanna go too
Like Johnny and June
Heidi Newfield
There are older and fouler things than Orcs in the deep places of the world.
J. R. R. Tolkien
I was allowed to ring the bell for five minutes until everyone was in assembly. It was the beginning of power.
Jeffrey Archer
I’m a big fan of the ‘Harry Potter’ movies and ‘The Lord of the Rings’ films.
John C. Reilly
To divide one’s life by years is of course to tumble into a trap set by our own arithmetic. The calendar consents to carry on its dull wall-existence by the arbitrary timetables we have drawn up in consultation with those permanent commuters, Earth and Sun. But we, unlike trees, need grow no annual rings.
Clifton Fadiman
I say to Floyd Mayweather Jr., don’t be a coward and face me in the ring, mano a mano, and shut your big, pretty mouth so we can show the world who is the true king of the ring.
Manny Pacquiao
I like doing accents. One of my friends works in hotel reservations and I’ll ring her up and complain about the suite. Sometimes I get her.
Geri Halliwell
Our contemporary Tories prefer the term ‘ordered liberty’ to ‘freedom’. The word ‘freedom’ scares them; it has too much of a paleolithic ring to it.
Edward Abbey
In boxing, you never know who you’re going to face in the ring.
Manny Pacquiao
I hope you feel better today. Please ring me at work if you are dead.
Jaclyn Moriarty
Just because a guy rings your bell, doesn’t mean you have to toot his horn.
C.C. Hunter
To say someone is the greatest, I just don’t want championships to define that greatness. Because under that theory, Robert Horry is one of the five or six best basketball players ever – he has seven championship rings. We know that not to be true.
Shannon Sharpe
Imagine owning a one million pound coin. Where would you put it? The pressure. I never even take my wedding rings off after the time I lost one for days, only to find it in a random trouser pocket.
Konnie Huq
While I cannot take the time to name all the men in the State Department who have been named as members of the Communist Party and members of a spy ring, I have here in my hand a list of 205.
Joseph McCarthy
The mob is a sort of bear; while your ring is through its nose, it will even dance under your cudgel; but should the ring slip, and you lose your hold, the brute will turn and rend you.
Jane Porter
At one time I was a nihilistic punk with a mohican and a ring in my nose. I think in the course of time I’ll find a middle ground, but I also carry that sense of responsibility. I’m in a position to defeat stereotypes.
Michelle Shocked
This does not mean that you are warmongers. On the contrary, the soldier above all other people prays for peace, for he must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war. But always in our ears ring the ominous words of Plato, that wisest of all philosophers: “Only the dead have seen the end of war.
Douglas MacArthur
Some people have a team of ten people – Waste of money, waste of time. I do it on my own when I’m in the ring.
Carl Froch
This is how we loosen up for the morning announcements. Whoever has the football when the bell rings loses.
Tom O’Connor
Rings and jewels are not gifts, but apologies for gifts. The only gift is a portion of thyself. Thou must bleed for me. Therefore the poet brings his poem; the shepherd, his lamb; the farmer, corn; the miner, a stone; the painter, his picture; the girl, a handkerchief of her own sewing.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Boxing is the ultimate challenge. There’s nothing that can compare to testing yourself the way you do every time you step in the ring.
Sugar Ray Leonard
Okay, I’m flattered, I appreciate your attempt at making me feel better after the fiasco with the pita rolls, but please ring up this beer I need it more than flattery.
Amanda Filipacchi
At one time, I wanted to be a WWE wrestler. I still do. I want to go in the ring once and mess around and jump off the ropes and do a Stone Cold stunt.
Rob Gronkowski
As I meet more people who were my heroes, I see there is something about them that rings true with all I’ve ever read and heard about them, and that’s all that really matters.
Terence Trent D’Arby
Here are beauties which pierce like swords or burn like cold iron. Here is a book [The Lord of the Rings] which will break your heart.”
C. S. Lewis
I actually get very little phone calls. I get way more tweets and texts. My phone rarely rings.
DeRay Mckesson
The studios are very much business. Maybe it was always that way. It is really commercial now. Judgments are made and directions are given to make the cash register ring.
Dianne Wiest
Orlando is such a kind person. He’s so generous and one of us, ‘us’ meaning a theater person. What a lot of people don’t know about him is that, before ‘Lord of the Rings,’ he went to theater school like a lot of us. He is just really sweet and hard working.
Condola Rashad
The praise of the praiseworthy is above all rewards.
J. R. R. Tolkien
A sense is what has the power of receiving into itself the sensible forms of things without the matter, in the way in which a piece of wax takes on the impress of a signet-ring without the iron or gold.
Every fight means everything. I have to stay focused no matter how high the stakes are or how low the stakes are, you have to stay focused and follow the game plan. At the end of the day it is going to be you and that guy in the ring and it’s who wins the game will win the fight. That’s what I learned.
Devon Alexander
A revolution is not the overturning of a cart, a reshuffling in the cards of state. It is a process, a swelling, a new growth in the race. If it is real, not simply a trauma, it is another ring in the tree of history, layer upon layer of invisible tissue composing the evidence of a circle.
Kate Millett
There were two movies that asked me to go to Australia or New Zealand for long periods of time. One was ‘Lord of the Rings’ and one was ‘The Matrix.’ But I was actively involved at that time raising my family, and I couldn’t really take that time out.
Nicolas Cage
For me, my 20s were all about reaching for the brass ring of work in theater, television, and film, surviving in between by waiting tables, painting houses, serving coffee, and temping.
Kate Walsh
If you throw the pebble in the pond and the rings start circulating that much wider, you’ve done things and created things for people that they didn’t think they’d ever be able to do. That excites me.
Mindy Grossman
I remember BjГ¶rk saying that she felt like, no matter what stage in her career, if a man is credited on something that she’s done, he’s going to get the credit for it. And, unfortunately, that still rings true.
Solange Knowles
Fairy roses, fairy rings, turn out sometimes troublesome things.
William Makepeace Thackeray
If you take ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings’ as books, one is written for children, and one is an adult’s book.
Peter Jackson
It’s funny. I don’t like onions but I like onion rings. What’s up with that?
Jared Leto
There are three rings involved with marriage. The engagement ring, the wedding ring, and the suffering.
Woody Allen
We really liked the magic of ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings,’ but we could never figure out where the powers came from.
Bryan Konietzko
While the steeples are loud in their joy, To the tune of the bells’ ring-a-ding, Let us chime in a peal, one and all, For we all should be able to sing Hullah baloo.
Thomas Hood
You can’t just come out and do the same moves that you always do because someone just basically came into the center of the ring and spun around on their head and did a back flip.
Damon Lindelof
Young adults living with a stutter is hard work. How do they handle job interviews? What do they do when the phone rings? How do they ‘chat someone up’? All these things the average person takes for granted prove to be a stammerer’s biggest challenge.
Gareth Gates
If you want to have the clarity and steadiness to deal with that ‘3:00 A.M. phone call,’ you should better have made sure that you’re not running on empty when that phone rings.
Arianna Huffington
You want ME in the ring? Now I know you’ve been drinking
Kurt Angle
The truth is, Pavlov’s dog trained Pavlov to ring this bell just before the dog salivated.
George Carlin
Dad’s tiny – his passport picture is a full-length shot. He looks like he just hopped off a key ring. Mum is a different matter, she’s a bit of a handful to say the least. I love her more than anyone on this Earth. But she’s a monster.
Ricky Hatton
The game ain’t always fair and that’s the thing though. You can play your heart out, everyone don’t get a ring though.
There is so much heartbreak and letdown in this industry. You get your heart set on something, and then you’re sitting by the phone for three weeks and it never rings.
Annie Murphy
The beauty of a language is, generally judged by its soft or rigid, melodious or harsh, ring. Other aspects, such as the flexibility of derivation, play hardly any role in grading. Were it the case, Russian would certainly be placed on the winner’s stand. It would rank first in plasticity.
KatГі Lomb
Even Charles Darwin, that human decoder ring of bizarre behavior, found the idea of saving a stranger’s life to be a total head-scratcher.
Christopher McDougall
None of my neighbors believe in what I say. They refuse to wear the rings. They will never accept my invention until the day they die. That’s what I call the real antichrists.
Alex Chiu
To the proud, the applause of the world rings in their ears; to the humble, the applause of heaven warms their hearts.
Ezra Taft Benson
I was always a sci-fi and fantasy geek. I was in the ‘Lord of the Rings’ club and all my cool friends made fun of me.
Melissa de la Cruz
Darkness now rose, as daylight sunk, and brought in low’ring Night her shadowy offspring.
John Milton
Karl Lagerfeld looks very tough because of the glasses, and he has all these rings and the leather gloves, and he’s so smart. But he’s a very nice person… when he comes into a room or studio, he is going to say hello to each person, and the same when he leaves.
Carine Roitfeld
We know the degree of refinement in people by the matter they laugh at and the ring of the laugh.
George Meredith
I’ve been doing this 26 years and have a lot of knowledge which will help me in the ring.
Wladimir Klitschko
Flow down and down in always widening rings of being.
I don’t have many friends so the phone doesn’t ring and no one’s asking me to go out and go dancing with them.
Henry Rollins
And they brought an Owl, and a useful Cart, And a pound of Rice, and a CranberryTart, And a hive of silvery Bees. And they brought a Pig, and some green Jack-daws, And a lovely Monkey with lollipop paws, and forty Bottles of Ring-Bo-Ree, And no end of Stilton Cheese.
Edward Lear
Laurel: I don’t need a ring or a license, or a spetacular white dress. It’s not marriage so much, or at all really, that matters. It’s the promise. It’s the knowing someone wants me to be part of his life. Someone loves me, that I’m the one for him. That’s not just enough, it’s everything.
Nora Roberts
I love a cool cellphone as much as the next guy, but, god, I hate when it rings.
Aesop Rock
The last time the three of us were in the ring together, it was pretty awesome. Vickie, we had a sweet, sexy, passionate make-out session. Dolph you remember! You were there! You were cool with it.
John Cena
I realized in the five years off, what I missed was being around the young people, the organization, the practice, the fourth quarter of the game where you’re behind, trying to get back to win the game late. It’s not about the rings and trophies and money, that’s not what you got into it for.
Mack Brown
I’m easygoing. There’s a place and time for everything. When that bell rings, I’m not nice and easy. I’m not meek and passive.
Gerry Cooney
I think the best thing I can do for me is to show up places and be clear-headed. Because when I’m clear-headed, my phone rings. I get opportunities.
Scott Hall
…the landscape inside Lord of the Rings was so stunning and so stupendous that it could be absorbed as a form of nourishment.
Jasper Fforde
Lord of the Rings made me realize that I’m not interested in doing anyone else’s work.
Ralph Bakshi
The approach of ‘Game of Thrones’ is similar to ‘The Lord of the Rings’ in that it treats its source material almost like history, and it focuses as much on the human drama as it does on anything fantastical.
Elijah Wood
We formed the fellowship of the ring when we should’ve all just gone on medication
Nancy Werlin
We are stone enemies when the bell rings
Muhammad Ali
They were the books to read, ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings.’ A rite of passage going through life.
Sylvester McCoy
It’s a promise ring,” he said solemnly. “The lady at the store said it’s what you give the girl you love. It means I want to marry you someday.
Kristin Hannah
For who, to dumb forgetfulness a prey, This pleasing anxious being e’er resign’d, Left the warm precincts of the cheerful day, Nor cast one longing ling’ring look behind?
Thomas Gray
I was fascinated by The Lord of the Rings from about the age of eight and that lasted well into my teens.
Philip Reeve
Let freedom ring, let the white dove sing, let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong… it’s Independence Day.
Martina McBride
Submit to a daily practice. Your loyalty to that is a ring at the door. Keep knocking, and the joy inside will eventually open a window and look out to see who’s there.
I’ve done a fair amount of that stuff… when we did ‘Lord of the Rings’ the transformation sequence from Smeagol to Gollum was a 19-hour make-up job. You have to have a kind of zen button that you press and allow the mind to be focused in a certain way.
Andy Serkis
The one thing I can’t get enough of is boxing. I love sparring in the ring or just doing the training, and it’s easily one of the most effective ways of keeping off fat.
Matthew Hussey
A ring of gold with the sun in it? Lies. Lies and a grief.
Sylvia Plath
That old saying about opportunity only knocking once is as archaic as the flat-earth theory and as patently untrue. Opportunity knocks all the time – and it rings your doorbell, calls you up, and sends you e-mails.
Victoria Moran
And so I think I got married because I thought that a ring would lock that love in forever, because it’s very scary when it is just your feelings holding you together
Craig Silvey
What a great way to make some money is just fine somebody $300 if their phone rings in the theatre. That’ll make them remember to turn it off.
Brett Gelman
My objective is to destroy anybody over 200 pounds, in the ring or out.
Mike Tyson
When Ron Howard rings you up and says, ‘I’d like you to do my film,’ you do it.
Tom Holland
My focus is on a ring, and giving the best individual performance I can.
Frank Thomas
A modest ring at the bell at length allayed her fears, and Miss Benton, hurrying into her own room and shutting herself up, in order that she might preserve that appearance of being taken by surprise which is so essential to the polite reception of visitors, awaited their coming with a smiling countenance.
Charles Dickens
My experience of what a loving relationship is like rings true with a lot of people I meet. I have a theory that the people you meet, one way you choose them, is their suitability for you in that particular matter. Attitudes toward friendship and marriage are in many cases closely aligned.
Robert Christgau
I don’t use a ring of any kind on my phone. This is so that I am always on offense and never defense.
Dave Morin
I have the same malice in my heart as far as the fight game is concerned, but outside the ring, I won’t say anything a dignified man won’t say.
Mike Tyson
I ruined my hands in the ring. The referee kept stepping on them.
Bob Hope
A wizard is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to.
J. R. R. Tolkien
Sports nurtures dreams of achieving self confidence and masculine striving for the skinny kid watching a boxer dance around the ring with sublime ease.
Armstrong Williams
For me the diamond dawns are set In rings of beauty.
John Townsend Trowbridge
Outside the ring I work hard when I train and I spend as much time as I can with my family when I’m not training.
Travis Browne
As soon as I got off the plane in L.A., I heard they’d cast the ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy and that it was all being shot in New Zealand! That was pretty ironic.
Martin Henderson
When you step in the ring, your arms are just too short to box with God.
CM Punk
Horses (thou say’st) and asses men may try,
And ring suspected vessels ere they buy;
But wives, a random choice, untried they take;
They dream in courtship, but in wedlock wake;
Then, nor till then, the veil’s removed away,
And all the woman glares in open day.
Alexander Pope
My mother collects engagement rings.
Shirley Ballas
And another question was unfortunately not asked of GГ¶ring: ‘The German people put faith in you even if they doubted Hitler because you were gentlemanly and more likable. What did you, GГ¶ring, do to justify this confidence? You have led a luxurious life and collected stolen art.
Hermann Goring
We had to pose with towels wrapped around us, holding rubber rings, that sort of thing. The turning point came when a photographer asked us to get on a fur rug and crawl like cats. We said no, because it was sexist and disrespectful.
Keren Woodward
Anyone who can steal the king’s seal ring can manage the locks on his record room.
Megan Whalen Turner
You can date the evolving life of a mind, like the age of a tree, by the rings of friendship formed by the expanding central trunk.
Mary McCarthy
She had no recollection, later, of having decided what to do next, or of having hunted for something to wear, but somehow she was hurrying down the stairs, dressed in shadowhunter gear, the letter in one hand and the chain with the ring clasped hastily around her throat.
Cassandra Clare
When you’re in a relationship, you’re always surrounded by a ring of circumstances… joined together by a wedding ring, or in a boxing ring.
Bob Seger
I’m not good at just sitting around waiting for the phone to ring, hoping that the perfect role is going to turn up.
Ed Speleers
LeBron will not likely win six rings.
Steve Rushin
And what do you wish?’ he said at last. ‘That what should be shall be,’ she answered.
J. R. R. Tolkien
George has only got to ring me. His imagination is so wonderful, I’d do any character he might create.
Peter Mayhew
‘Lord of the Rings’ was a set of books in which the world had been conceived before the characters were placed within that context.
Mark Z. Danielewski
Photography is a powerful medium of persuasion and propaganda. It has that ring of truth when all the time, in artful hands, it can make any statement the manipulator chooses.
Michael Langford
But not gold in commercial quantities, Just enough gold to make the engagement rings And marriage rings of those who owned the farm. What gold more innocent could one have asked for?
Robert Frost
Some people work very closely with a director or a producer on something, and from the get go, they’re collaborating. But typically, it’s just go in for an audition, do the best you can, and if the phone rings a couple of days after the audition and you get the part, that’s great.
Roger Craig Smith
There’s not much point in finding a magic ring that lets you into other worlds if you’re afraid to look at them when you’ve got there.
Digory Kirke
Dogs have important jobs, like barking when the doorbell rings, but cats have no function in a house whatsoever.
W. Bruce Cameron
The memories of childhood have a strange shuttling quality, and areas of darkness ring the spaces of light. The memories of childhood are like clear candles in an acre of night, illuminating fixed scenes from surrounding darkness.
Carson McCullers
All the poems have wolves in them. All but one. The most beautiful one of all. She dances in a ring of fire and throws off the challenge with a shrug.
Jim Morrison
Once you’re inside the ring, a fight is a fight. Fans can’t fight for you, the hometown crowd can’t fight for you.
Celestino Caballero
Sounds are something that I always emulate – I’ll walk around, and if a coffee pot goes off or a phone rings, I’ll often mimic the sound. To me, everything’s got a voice.
Iliza Shlesinger
If you’re going to have a book full of clever people and nobody ever jokes, it’s just not going to ring true to the reader. That said, humor writing is the hardest kind of writing there is.
Patrick Rothfuss
I want to win four or five championship rings. That’s how I dream. I dream big.
Adrian Peterson
I can put it no plainer than by saying that Bilbo was meant to find the Ring, and not by its maker. In which case you also were meant to have it. And that may be an encouraging thought.
J. R. R. Tolkien
Hey, if I don’t have a job, I don’t know why I bother to get up. Any time the phone rings, I’m ready to go. What else am I going to do? See, I’ve never retired. I don’t even know what it means.
Morgan Freeman
Within you there are thousands of rings of luminosity, bands, and each one is a universe of perception. In the average person’s lifetime, they might just open up two or three, maybe four of those bands.
Frederick Lenz
But when you actually go in the ring, it’s a very lonely and scary place. It’s just you and the other guy.
Frank Bruno
It started with a simple ring,
You became husband and wife,
You progressed to being parents
And you’re still best friends for life.
John Walter Bratton
If they ever let me in the ring with him [Cassius Clay], I’m liable to be put away for murder.
Sonny Liston
Being put in this situation, where it’s myself, Kyle O’Reilly and a Jay Lethal, I think it’s the best main event you can have right now in Ring of Honor.
Adam Cole
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims’ pride,
From every mountainside
Let freedom ring!
Samuel Francis Smith
I’m wondering how someone who goes around wearing a wedding ring succeeded in the dating pool. Normally a wedding ring sends a flashing “Do Not Enter” message – except to those looking for flings with married people.
Emily Yoffe
The hardest for me is rings because it is a lot more strength-oriented, while all the other events are about fluidity and flexibility. It’s the one event that doesn’t coincide with the fluidity, which is my strength.
Sam Mikulak
James Franco is a Method actor. I respect Method actors, but he never snapped out of character. Whenever we’d have to get in the ring for boxing scenes, and even during practice, the dude was full-on hitting me.
Tyrese Gibson
In marriage there are no manners to keep up, and beneath the wildest accusations no real criticism. Each is familiar with that ancient child in the other who may erupt again. We are not ridiculous to ourselves. We are ageless. That is the luxury of the wedding ring.
Enid Bagnold
Because I was in the business of translating the ‘X-Men’ from the very successful comics, and taking the most popular book of the 20th century in ‘The Lord of the Rings,’ and making it into three movies, I hope people realize I wouldn’t get involved in anything I didn’t think was really going to be worth their while.
Ian Mckellen
Wedding rings need to be sparkly to remind us not to have sex with other people.
Andrea Savage
Old reference books are like tree rings. Without them, there’d be no way to know what a tree had lived through.
Jill Lepore
I love rings, but I cant wear them. I mean, look at my knuckles. My fingers and joints are so swollen from years of playing. That means no wedding band, either. Luckily, I have a very understanding wife.
Justin Tuck
Stig: ‘Of course, she’ll sail rings around Wolfswind,’ Hal: ‘Then why didn’t you tell him that?’ Stig: ‘I like my head where it is.
John Flanagan
The ear of the leader must ring with the voices of the people.
Woodrow Wilson
I have to say that I’ve reached the state of my career where I quite like not to work. Strange enough, I’m busier than ever. I’m not spending every waking hour beside a telephone waiting for it to ring.
Jeremy Irons
When I leave the NBA, I don’t want my legacy to be, ‘He won a championship ring.’ I want my legacy to say: ‘He played for the people. He gave everybody in the world hope that they can be just like him.’
Gilbert Arenas
I journal for about half an hour, and by the time that’s done, the business day on the East Coast has begun. The phone starts to ring, and the rest of the day is spent dealing with the business of writing. My workday is done at about 3:00.
Kate DiCamillo
My vision is one of celebrations and banquets, diplomas and banners, rings and parades.
John Calipari
If the church of today does not recapture the sacrificial spirit of the early church, it will lose its authentic ring, forfeit the loyalty of millions, and be dismissed as an irrelevant social club with no meaning for the twentieth century.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I don’t need to ring anyone. I said I’m dying. I didn’t say I wanted to live.
Tim Bowler
If that mockingbird don’t sing and that ring don’t shine, I’m a break that birdie’s neck.
The sun was a molten coin burning a circle in the low-hanging overcast, surrounded by a fairy-ring of moisture.
Stephen King
There’s Beatles books and T-shirts and rings, and one thing and another. To buy my daughter all these things, I had to sell her brother.
Allan Sherman
I don’t buy it is all about the rings because there are a lot of guys that got rings that can’t play a lick. They happened to be on the bench with some great players, so I don’t buy into that totally.
Mike D’Antoni
The gods are deaf to hot and peevish vows. They are polluted off’rings, more abhorred! Than spotted livers in the sacrifice.
William Shakespeare
I have to create opportunities for myself. But the thing I really have learned is that you gain nothing from sitting around waiting for the phone to ring – you have to do it for yourself.
Laura Benanti
If any mention was made of homicide, madness, adultery, and intolerable tortures, we would let the church-bells ring louder, the church-organ swell its peal and drown the hideous sound. The sugar they raised was excellent: nobody tasted blood in it.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I know Peter Jackson a tiny-tiny bit from interviewing him about the ‘Lord of the Rings’ movies over the years. When I was visiting the set of ‘The Return of the King,’ he let me be an extra so I could see filmmaking from a different perspective. I was a Rohan soldier.
Jeff Giles
Ring the bells for the blind and deaf.
Bob Dylan
I am a winner each and every time I go into the ring.
George Foreman
For a girl, the wedding is when you’re married. For a guy, it’s when you get engaged. It takes a real aggressive human being to back out between the ring and the wedding.
Max Greenfield
If you look after yourself, keep yourself healthy and have good sparring, there shouldn’t be any issues regarding ring rust.
David Haye
If there is one abiding theme in the gym, it’s the withering work in the ring. Those not fit do not survive.
Emanuel Steward
The tour bus was supposed to be here ten minutes ago. Would it be possible to give them a ring to check they’ve not forgotten us?
Evelyn Waugh
I will have Derek Fisher wear all 5 of his rings the first time he comes in to talk to Carmelo.
Phil Jackson
It was as if the empty nights were made for thinking of him. And sometimes I found myself so vividly aware of him it was as if he had only just left the room and the ring of his voice were still there. And somehow, there was a disturbing comfort in that, and, despite myself, I’d envision his face.
Anne Rice
Middle-age is when you’re sitting at home on a Saturday night and the telephone rings and you hope it isn’t for you.
Ogden Nash
And she, the new mother of a daughter, felt a fierceness come over her that seized at her heart, that made her feel as if her bones were turned to steel, as if she could turn herself into a weapon to keep this daughter of hers from having to be hurt by the world outside the ring of her arms.
Lauren Groff
The backgrounds in Lord of the Rings are all explained.
Robbie Coltrane
With a sigh she reached into her pocket and drew out a small velvet bag, which upended on the table. Two gold rings fell out, landing with a soft clink. Simon looked at them puzzled. “You want to get married?
Cassandra Clare
My favourite all-time work of fiction: Lord of the Rings. My favourite all-time nonfiction book: Guns, Germs, and Steel. Ask me again next week, you’ll get a different answer.
Orson Scott Card
You know that a plan was dreamed up by politicians and pollsters – and not by, oh, anyone who knows what they are talking about – when the numbers are nice and round with a catchy ring to them.
Jerry Taylor
I’m in my truck talking to Jesus. And you can see a World Series ring on my right pinkie finger. But when I take my sunglasses off a second later, it’s gone. It’s the whole divine intervention thing. You know Jesus had something to do with them winning.
Denis Leary
I think everything is going to be devastatingly sad – when the phone rings, I know somebody in my family’s been hurt, somebody’s going to die. I’m sure a therapist would go, ‘That’s not a good way to live,’ but every time it’s not that bad thing, I’m so thankful and appreciative.
Sandra Bullock
The way to know about championship quality is to learn from champions, and that I did; studying them with professional purpose during my time in the ring and from habitual interest afterward.
Gene Tunney
Learn to live well, or fairly make your will;
You’ve play’d, and lov’d, and ate, and drank your fill:
Walk sober off, before a sprightlier age
Comes titt’ring on, and shoves you from the stage.
Alexander Pope
I do love the feeling of a big win. But you don’t have to have a World Series ring to be a winner. A winner is somebody who goes out there every day and exhausts himself trying to get something accomplished. Being able to get the most from their ability. That’s what characterizes a winner.
Joe Torre
Frodo: Go back, Sam! I’m going to Mordor alone. Sam: Of course you are, and I’m coming with you!
J. R. R. Tolkien
The owner of the New York Yankees, Mr. George Steinbrenner who I had the greatest respect for, I want to thank him for giving me the opportunity to win that special ring in 1996.
Wade Boggs
Oh! How many torments lie in the small circle of a wedding ring.
Colley Cibber
I’m the type of guy who’d sell you a rat’s asshole for a wedding ring.
Tom Waits
The iron ring is worn out by constant use.
[Lat., Ferreus assiduo consumitur anulus usu.]
He is the ugliest thing I have ever seen. I have watched Lord of the Rings and films with strange looking people, but for a human being to look like he does is pretty shocking.
David Haye
I love movies like ‘The Postman Always Rings Twice’ that are based on short novellas.
Lynne Ramsay
Opportunity knocks for every man, but you have to give a woman a ring.
Mae West
There is nothing that you may not get people to believe in if you will only tell it them loud enough and often enough, till the welkin rings with it.
Get what you can with words, because words are free, but the words of an armed man ring that much sweeter.
Joe Abercrombie
When you’re a young actor you ring your agent every evening. It’s not like when you’re in Hollywood where you do one picture a year. You just hope you get a day on television.
Michael Caine
I felt myself getting teary eyed. And I was like, ‘Wait a second. You can’t do that. You’re the WWE Champion.’ Then I went out of the ring, Alex Riley was there and we both celebrated together. Feeling his excitement made me feel even more excited.
The Miz
Stick.” I said in Russian. I had no clue what the word for stake was. I pointed at the silver ring I wore and made a slashing motion. “Stick. where?” He stared at me in utter confusion and then asked in perfect English, “why are you talking like that?
Richelle Mead
Lord of the Rings was just so much enjoyment. It was over about the space of a year that I was filming. It’s one of the most enjoyable things I’ve ever done, so emotional.
Sean Bean
My heart has become as hard as a city street, the horses trample upon it, it sings like iron, all day long and all night long they beat, they ring like the hooves of time.
Conrad Aiken
I think we have to bottom out. When the studios jump out of the ring, perhaps the artist can get back in.
Don Bluth
I wanted to go and I wanted to drive the miles for no pay, I wanted to set up the rings, I wanted to set up the chairs, I wanted to go to training six-seven days a week for hours upon hours and blow myself up to where I can only work on instinct. I wanted to sleep in my car. I wanted to do all of that.
Tessa Blanchard
‘The Lord of the Rings,’ obviously, had a huge, huge impact on me. I read a lot of ‘Hardy Boys,’ also. I liked the equation, that it was always the same but a little bit different. There’s something comforting about those books.
Blake Crouch
I know what love is. When you find the person you are supposed to love, bells ring and fireworks go off in your head and you can’t find the words to speak and you think about him all the time. When you find the person you are supposed to love, you will know by staring deeply into their eyes.
Jodi Picoult
Watching a spring training game is as exciting as watching a tree form its annual ring.
Jerry Izenberg
There is some good in this world, and it’s worth fighting for.
J. R. R. Tolkien
