In any authoritarian society, the possessor of power dictates, and if you try and step outside, he will come after you.

148

When I left ‘Downton Abbey,’ it hadn’t yet taken off and become the phenomenon that it is, to this day. That all happened after I left. But, it was fabulous to be a part of it and to be a part of the cast. We had an absolute ball!
180
Words do not express thoughts very well. They always become a little different immediately after they are expressed, a little distorted, a little foolish.
181
I actually started off majoring in computer science, but I knew right away I wasn’t going to stay with it. It was because I had this one professor who was the loneliest, saddest man I’ve ever known. He was a programmer, and I knew that I didn’t want to do whatever he did. So after that, I switched to Communications.
182
Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, set goals and charge after them in an unstoppable manner.

In a real dark night of the soul, it is always three o’clock in the morning, day after day.
187

I wanted to get my coaching badges after retiring, and I asked to take the exam, but they told me I needed to study for four years. I told them they were crazy. Who is going to study for four years? How is someone going to teach me technical things when I know more than they do?
191
After the liberation of Bangladesh in 1971, primary education was made free. We are now thinking to make education in the public sector free up to graduation level. We are also thinking of providing a light meal at primary and secondary schools in order to increase the student retention level.
192
The decadent international but individualistic capitalism in the hands of which we found ourselves after the war is not a success. It is not intelligent. It is not beautiful. It is not just. It is not virtuous. And it doesn’t deliver the goods.
193
If the Philippines secure their independence after heroic and stubborn conflicts, they can rest assured that neither England, nor Germany, nor France, and still less Holland, will dare to take up what Spain has been unable to hold.
194
When a man is treated like a beast, he says, ‘After all, I’m human.’ When he behaves like a beast, he says ‘After all, I’m only human.’
195
After my primary school education, I started gathering little children by visiting parents to ask if they wanted somebody to care for their kids by teaching them the Bible. I have never attended any seminary school or Bible college in my life.
196
Children begin by loving their parents; after a time they judge them; rarely, if ever, do they forgive them.
197
The whole of ancient astrology owed its origin to conversation with the cosmic intelligences. But by the time of the first centuries after the rise of Christianity, ancient astrology – that is to say, conversation with cosmic intelligences – was a thing of the past.

Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn’t people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight remains to them?

The measure of a life, after all, is not its duration, but its donation.
Corrie Ten Boom
202
I sat behind Thurman Thomas for my first couple of years, then my first year starting I won the Heisman. After I won the Heisman, that’s when things changed as far as going to the NFL.
203
After all is said and done, more is said than done.

210
For awhile after you quit Keats all other poetry seems to be only whistling or humming.
211
I do not abuse players. I talk to myself; I abuse myself. It’s my way of letting off steam. I do it after every century; I do not do it always. I keep telling myself: ‘Improve, improve from the previous match, the previous shot. You can do it.’
212
It’s not like after winning an award, your job is done and you can relax. You still have to work hard.
213
After every war someone has to tidy up.
214
I was at Elon University in North Carolina for two years pursuing my BFA. And after my sophomore year, I was cast in the Broadway Tour of ‘West Side Story.’ I just kind of – it always was my favorite show growing up.
Grant Gustin
215
If it is true that the great missionaries of the 16th century were convinced that one who was not baptized was lost – and that explains their missionary commitment – in the Catholic Church after the Second Vatican Council, that conviction was definitely abandoned.
216
Vampires are so old that they don’t need to impress anyone anymore. They’re comfortable in their own skin. It’s this enigmatic strength that’s very romantic and old-fashioned. I think it goes back to something of a Victorian attitude of finding a strong man who’s going to look after his woman.
217
After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
218
Everyone chases after happiness, not noticing that happiness is right at their heels.

Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
221
Every family should have the right to spend their money, after tax, as they wish, and not as the government dictates. Let us extend choice, extend the will to choose and the chance to choose.
222
What we become depends on what we read after all of the professors have finished with us. The greatest university of all is a collection of books.

Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days.

To see the ball, to run after it, makes me the happiest man in the world.

226
Republican comes in the dictionary just after reptile and just above repugnant.
227
Most people make poor partners because their mental script has a defect. They believe focus means looking after their own interests. It’s a script error.

After a long day, my favorite way to unwind is by going running. Not exactly the most relaxing activity, granted, but I always imagine I’m sweating out all the things weighing on my mind.
Becca Fitzpatrick
229
Mark this well, you proud men of action! you are, after all, nothing but unconscious instruments of the men of thought.
230
Every generation inherits a world it never made; and, as it does so, it automatically becomes the trustee of that world for those who come after. In due course, each generation makes its own accounting to its children.
231
Thus it is that in war the victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.
232

The sound of ‘gentle stillness‘ after all the thunder and wind have passed will the ultimate Word from God.
235
I feel a lot of support from the people of Penrith and the Blue Mountains and will always remember the amazing welcome home I received after the London Olympics. But more importantly, it’s during hard times that Westies come together.
Jessica Fox
236
There is surely nothing other than the single purpose of the present moment. A man’s whole life is a succession of moment after moment. If one fully understands the present moment, there will be nothing else to do, and nothing else to pursue. Live being true to the single purpose of the moment.
Yamamoto Tsunetomo
237
Alcohol is like love. The first kiss is magic, the second is intimate, the third is routine. After that you take the girl’s clothes off.
238
It’s true what they say: ‘You don’t appreciate what you’ve got until it’s gone.’ I miss love. I miss being looked after.
239
We may not know what each day has in store for us. We could be gone tomorrow. Any minute could truly be our goodbye. But we do have this moment. This time. Today. Right now. It takes way more effort to shell out hate then it does to allow love to flow freely in our lives. After all, it’s what we were born to do.
240
To live for a principle, for the triumph of some reform by which all mankind are to be lifted up to be wedded to an idea may be, after all, the holiest and happiest of marriages.

We don’t receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.
244
So much of Islam is Judeo-Christianity. It’s impossible to divorce them. Islam is 600 years after Christ. Thousands of years after Judaism. Christ, Moses, Abraham – they are all in the Koran.
245
If you get hungry mid-day, a banana is the best snack at your desk, after a workout, or in between classes. Fruit is a very good snack in general.
246
After I got over the terrible pain of having something of mine taken from me, I began to think how bad everybody else must be feeling. It wasn’t a nice time.
Lena Horne
247
There’s a big difference between falling in love with someone and falling in love with someone and getting married. Usually, after you get married, you fall in love with the person even more.
248
It’s not as if I’ve ever been to prison or been close to going to prison. The closest I’ve got is knowing people who have been in jail – after all, I was a member of Parliament – and visiting them there during their sentence.
249
Before Alamein we never had a victory. After Alamein we never had a defeat.
250
In our personal and professional lives, we are constantly hit with one adversity after the other, most of which we have no control over. But the four things we have total control over is how we react, how we adapt, how we breathe, and how we take action.
251
Before marriage, a girl has to make love to a man to hold him. After marriage, she has to hold him to make love to him.
252
I actually don’t invest in anything that is social, mobile, deals or ad networks simply because those are areas where there are so many players and so many other smart people in the space, I feel like I don’t have a competitive advantage. So I tend to go after things that are e-commerce, like healthcare.
253
I believe more in looking after yourself than in doing make-up. So if it’s skin care versus make-up or taking care of your inner body instead of just looking good, choose the former. You will end up looking good in whatever you wear.
254
One thing I always tell players is that there are three bad things: Nothing good happens after midnight, nothing good happens when you’re around guns unless you’re going hunting, and you don’t want to mess around with women that you don’t know because a lot of times, bad things happen.
255
If I told you I was a Republican and you were a Democrat, no matter what I said after that, it would be tempered with your opinions.
256
Alas, after a certain age every man is responsible for his face.
257
I got along without you before I met you and I’ll get along without you a long time after you’re gone.
258
How do you deal with a criminal that will not listen to what you have to say and who continues his policy of violence? Some say you continue to talk and let him tire himself out. But nearly 40 years after the institution of apartheid, is there anyone who still believes that verbal persuasion will work?
259
After one look at this planet any visitor from outer space would say ‘I want to see the manager.’
260
There is a Japanese proverb that literally goes ‘Raise the sail with your stronger hand’, meaning you must go after the opportunities that arise in life that you are best equipped to do.

265
After I got my gold medal, I thought, ‘This isn’t just me. It belongs to my team, my friends, my family, the fans, everybody who’s impacted my life – this is our gold medal.’ So when someone asks to try it on, I’m like, ‘Sure, why not?’ I might be a little too relaxed about it, but why would I keep it to myself?
266
If you set goals and go after them with all the determination you can muster, your gifts will take you places that will amaze you.
267
Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.
268
The morning after my high-school graduation found me up early job hunting. The dream of college I put on the back burner.
Martha Reeves

I was told that with the right attitude, and with enough hard work, if you get up after every time you fail, you can amount to something and you can do positive work. You can leave a positive mark for our world, and that’s what I aim to do.
270
Don’t be dismayed by good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends.
271
Food service workers, home care workers, farm workers, and other low-wage workers log long hours. They come home tired after providing services and producing goods that make our country stronger. They deserve fair treatment from their employers, and they deserve a voice in collective bargaining.
272
My daughter’s name is Neesyn Dacey but everyone calls her Dacey. Her mom chose Neesyn and I chose Dacey after she was born. The mother is a good friend of mine who I was seeing a while ago. We are no longer together.
273
The independent-minded movies – it’s always an uphill battle to get them made and seen. You do what you can, and go out there after and try to tell people about it, but at the end of the day, that’s all you can do.
274
Wealth, like happiness, is never attained when sought after directly. It comes as a by-product of providing a useful service.
275
I respect all religions, but I’m not a deeply religious person. But I try and live life in the right way, respecting other people. I wasn’t brought up in a religious way, but I believe there’s something out there that looks after you.
276
Education is what you learn after you leave school.
277
One of my favorite things to do is to play music really loud and dance my butt off in the morning. I’ll do it alone in my apartment. You can’t have a bad day after that.
278
The fool knows after he’s suffered.
279
There is a reason they called it chasing your dreams and not walking after them.

Barbara Hershey
281
We don’t receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.
282

283
A man always remembers his first love with special tenderness, but after that he begins to bunch them.
284
My bedroom is my favorite chill out zone, where after a hectic day, I sign off to land in my dreams.
285
In my life, I was always floating around the edge of the dark side and saying what if take it a little bit too far, and who says you have to stop there, and what’s behind the next door. Maybe you gain a wisdom from examining those things. But after a while, you get too far down in the quicksand.
286
People never lie so much as after a hunt, during a war or before an election.
Otto von Bismarck
287
After my first knee operation, in January of ’65 before I went to the Jets, Dr. James Nicholas told me everything went well and that I could probably play four years in the NFL. The surgery was trailblazing to a certain extent.
288
My hair had been dyed blonde for ‘Dredd.’ After ‘Dredd,’ I was really fried because of the blonde hair dye, and so I cut it into a bob with bangs and that’s how it was during ‘Being Flynn.’
289
My father was a tailor. He worked from seven o’clock in the morning until seven at night. At least when he got home, my mother always cooked him a very good dinner. Lots of potatoes, I remember; he used to knock them down like a dose of salts. He needed it, after a 12-hour day.
290
Covid is likely to persist once its pandemic phase has passed and circulate each winter alongside the flu. Even after more of us contract coronavirus infection and develop immunity to it or even after an effective vaccine arrives, some people will still get very sick.
291
After people have repeated a phrase a great number of times, they begin to realize it has meaning and may even be true.
292
I race six events. I specialise in butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle, and it’s not impossible, but it is hard to be able to race every single race, and day after day as well.
Sophie Pascoe

Kant‘s style is so heavy that after his pure reason, the reader longs for unreasonableness.
294
We’ve got to have rules and obey them. After all, we’re not savages. We’re English, and the English are best at everything.
295
After all it is those who have a deep and real inner life who are best able to deal with the irritating details of outer life.
Evelyn Underhill
296
My generation put in a lot more hours playing football after school than kids today. These days, all the football these kids play, they play at their clubs, so the clubs need to work seriously on the basic skills.
297
Be nice to your children. After all, they are going to choose your nursing home.
298
Habit allows us to go from ‘before’ to ‘after,’ to make life easier and better. Habit is notorious – and rightly so – for its ability to direct our actions, even against our will; but by mindfully shaping our habits, we can harness the power of mindlessness as a sweeping force for serenity, energy, and growth.
299
Artists to my mind are the real architects of change, and not the political legislators who implement change after the fact.
300
If a man had more than one life, I think a little hanging would not hurt this one; but after he is once dead, we cannot bring him back, no matter how sorry we may be; so the boy shall be pardoned.
301
Although nannies who cover more than one generation are rare, those like Veronica Crook – who looked after me and now looks after my four children – are pearls of great price. They provide a continuity and stability for a family that is of inestimable value for the child and, indeed, the man.
302
After a century of striving, after a year of debate, after a historic vote, health care reform is no longer an unmet promise. It is the law of the land.

I think we take it for granted that if you are with your husband after 30 years, then he is the love of your life.
305
Whether you like it or not, you’re a national figure after five games at Notre Dame.
306
It was a good place for getting lost in, a city no one ever knew, a city explored from the neutral heart outward, until after many years, it defined itself into a jumble of clearings separated by stretches of the unknown, through which the narrowest of paths had been cut.
307
After a really hectic week, I hate going out on a Friday evening, so I’ll always opt for a night at home.
308
Genius can probably run on ahead and seek out new ways. But the good artists who follow after genius – and I count myself among these – have to restore the lost connection once more.
Kathe Kollwitz
309
After marriage, every woman wants to settle down and have children. I have no regrets. I was occupied in my little world, enjoying each and every experience that came my way.
310
A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.
311
After all, the best part of a holiday is perhaps not so much to be resting yourself, as to see all the other fellows busy working.
Kenneth Grahame

Experience is something you don’t get until just after you need it.
313
Anything you really want, you can attain, if you really go after it.
314
We didn’t crumble after 9/11. We didn’t falter after the Boston Marathon. But we’re America. Americans will never, ever stand down. We endure. We overcome. We own the finish line.
315
I went through two pretty dark years being fed up with the system and frustrated with my own party after two disastrous elections in 2006 and 2008.
316
I like refried beans. That’s why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they’re just as good and we’re just wasting time. You don’t have to fry them again after all.
317
If you ever face a significant disaster, do your best to keep up the spirits of those around you, act flexibly and creatively to help, try to sort rumors from truth, and remember that the decisions you make will have repercussions after the disaster has passed.
Sheri Fink
318
After 2014, we will support a unified Afghanistan as it takes responsibility for its own future.
319
I was drafted during the Korean War. None of us wanted to go… It was only a couple of years after World War II had ended. We said, ‘Wait a second? Didn’t we just get through with that?’
320
Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth, ‘You owe me.’ Look what happens with a love like that. It lights the whole sky.
Hafez
321
If you move to Canada, after a few years you call yourself Canadian. In Germany, it’s difficult to belong.
322
Everyone has a different opinion; every country has a different way of doing things. But I do believe that we need a regulatory body so that everyone who owns or manages wildlife is subject to inspection and rated on how well they look after the animals and how the communities benefit.
323
Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.
324
Our best successes often come after our greatest disappointments.
325
One of the saddest realities is that we never know when our lives are at their peak. Only after it is over and we have some kind of perspective do we realize how good we had it a day, a month, five years ago.
326
Never give up. Today is hard, tomorrow will be worse, but the day after tomorrow will be sunshine.
327
Whatever I like, even after a long time, I still like it. And I reminisce about the moment when I first heard it. That’s what I love. Just remembering those moments.
328
I don’t believe in politics. I’m an anarchist, I guess you could say. I think people could be just fine looking after themselves.
329
I don’t believe in the after life, although I am bringing a change of underwear.
330
I received a call from America after finishingSuspect‘, and I told them that I would go to America if things are ready.

Democracy consists of choosing your dictators, after they’ve told you what you think it is you want to hear.
Alan Coren
332
For 500 years after Gutenberg, the dominant form of information was the printed page: knowledge was primarily delivered in a fixed format, one that encouraged readers to believe in stable and settled truths.
333
If they had told me I was the janitor and would have to mop up and clean the toilets after the show in order to play, I probably would have done it.
334
It’s tough to go to sleep at night, and I wake up after five hours because I feel like I’m wasting time. I just sit up at night and think about what I can do next.
335
When I’m painting, I’m not aware of what I’m doing. It’s only after a get acquainted period that I see what I’ve been about. I’ve no fears about making changes for the painting has a life of its own.
Jackson Pollock
336
Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.
337
We ought to do good to others as simply as a horse runs, or a bee makes honey, or a vine bears grapes season after season without thinking of the grapes it has borne.
338
I considered myself very lucky after ‘Baghdad Cafe,’ and I have ‘The Shield.’ In every genre, I’ve kicked butt at some point. I’m real happy.

John N. Mitchell
340
I had a band with David Gates. There was just a lot of opportunity at that time. But I left for Los Angeles the week after I graduated high school, and I actually left to try to get into the advertising business. That was really why I went out to L.A. My music career was almost an accident.
341
I look my best when I take my helmet off after a long motorcycle ride. I have a glow and a bit of helmet hair.
342
Growing up with my mother who grew up during World War II being half Filipina, half Okinawan, and literally running around the jungles in the Philippines escaping Japanese military chasing after them – I grew up with what they deem now as trauma, generational trauma.
343
The ‘democracy gap’ in our politics and elections spells a deep sense of powerlessness by people who drop out, do not vote, or listlessly vote for the ‘least worst‘ every four years and then wonder why after every cycle the ‘least worst’ gets worse.
344
Even after a bad harvest there must be sowing.
345
Life was difficult for my family, as we didn’t know where to go after leaving Kashmir. We settled down in Mumbai, in a suburb called Mira Road.
346
I do believe in humanism, and I believe that we should treat each other with respect and care and look after each other. All human beings should have an equal chance to survive in society, and inequality is a big problem in society.
347
And New York is the most beautiful city in the world? It is not far from it. No urban night is like the night there… Squares after squares of flame, set up and cut into the aether. Here is our poetry, for we have pulled down the stars to our will.

What’s happened has happened, so what can we do to make it better for tomorrow and the day after? That’s why we’re here.

Procrastination is the bad habit of putting off until the day after tomorrow what should have been done the day before yesterday.
353
Money is always there but the pockets change; it is not in the same pockets after a change, and that is all there is to say about money.
354
I always get carried away when I’m kissing. I just go nuts! Walking away after it is the strangest moment for me. It’s embarrassingnot knowing what to say to each other.
355
Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art.

Your Heavenly Father will help you find the right path as you seek His guidance. Remember though, after you pray you must get off your knees and start doing something positive; head in the right direction! He will send people along the way who will assist you, but you must be doing your part as well.
359
The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal is our only hope.

The meaning of life is not to be discovered only after death in some hidden, mysterious realm; on the contrary, it can be found by eating the succulent fruit of the Tree of Life and by living in the here and now as fully and creatively as we can.
Paul Kurtz
361
Jim Newman, the business visionary who created the term ‘comfort zone,’ showed me how to expand my horizons. Thanks to Jim, after I attended one of his PACE Seminars in 1978; I moved out of my comfort zone at Bear Stearns and became a super successful oilman.

When people talk of the freedom of writing, speaking or thinking I cannot choose but laugh. No such thing ever existed. No such thing now exists; but I hope it will exist. But it must be hundreds of years after you and I shall write and speak no more.
363
After being raised as an evangelical Christian, I for years assumed that Christianity was the default – there were Christians, and then there were weirdos. I was shocked when, in college, I found that some people get offended when you tell them, for instance, that their recovery from surgery was a ‘miracle.’

364
After the 1929 crash, the Federal Reserve mistakenly focused its policies on preserving the gold value of the dollar rather than on stabilizing the domestic economy.
365
Both Presidents George Bush and Barack Obama pursued policies of regime change after 9/11 – with Bush removing al-Qaida’s safe haven in Afghanistan and the sadistic anti-American dictator Saddam Hussein in Iraq – but Obama took it a step further and disregarded regional stability as a guiding factor for U.S. policy.
366
After a lifetime of losing and gaining weight, I get it. No matter how you slice it, weight loss comes down to the simple formula of calories in, calories out.
367
There’s nothing wrong with raising venture capital. Many lean startups are ambitious and are able to deploy large amounts of capital. What differentiates them is their disciplined approach to determining when to spend money: after the fundamental elements of the business model have been empirically validated.
368
Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones.
369
Do you know how many athletes go broke three years after they stop playing? I want to help them hold on to their money. I mean, I know about budgets.
370
After the wheel, the PlayStation is the best invention of all time.
371
DJ Envy‘s definitely talk about me, but I’m one of many. I was under the assumption that he had kids but wasn’t actually married. I found out around the time that I started filming ‘Love & Hip Hop.’ After I found out, I was still in shock because we were together for so long.
372
What is Apple, after all? Apple is about people who think ‘outside the box,’ people who want to use computers to help them change the world, to help them create things that make a difference, and not just to get a job done.
373
After I won the Oscar, my salary doubled, my friends tripled, my children became more popular at school, my butcher made a pass at me, and my maid hit me up for a raise.
Shirley Jones
374
It is not all bad, this getting old, ripening. After the fruit has got its growth it should juice up and mellow. God forbid I should live long enough to ferment and rot and fall to the ground in a squash.
375
I think people really marry far too much; it is such a lottery after all, and for a poor woman a very doubtful happiness.
Queen Victoria
376
I am like a drop of water on a rock. After drip, drip, dripping in the same place, I begin to leave a mark, and I leave my mark in many people’s hearts.
Rigoberta Menchu
377
Nobody expects to trust his body overmuch after the age of fifty.
378
We are looking for happiness and running after it in such a way that creates anger, fear and discrimination. So when you attend a retreat, you have a chance to look at the deep roots of this pollution of the collective energy that is unwholesome.
379
People make mistakes and I’ve probably made a few more than others, but unfortunately mine are also a bit more public. That’s the way it is. You’ve just got to get on with life. After all, it’s not a rehearsal.
380
My only concern was to get home after a hard day’s work.
381
After one has been in prison, it is the small things that one appreciates: being able to take a walk whenever one wants, going into a shop and buying a newspaper, speaking or choosing to remain silent. The simple act of being able to control one’s person.
382
No one ever died from sleeping in an unmade bed. I have known mothers who remake the bed after their children do it because there is wrinkle in the spread or the blanket is on crooked. This is sick.
383
Bad company is like a nail driven into a post, which, after the first and second blow, may be drawn out with little difficulty; but being once driven up to the head, the pincers cannot take hold to draw it out, but which can only be done by the destruction of the wood.
384
The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in rising again after you fall.
385
Suburbia is where the developer bulldozes out the trees, then names the streets after them.
Bill Vaughan
386
Is it crazy that George Bush, ex-President of America, now paints pictures of dogs? Tiny, little, nice pictures of dogs, after all the suffering that he caused? That’s crazy that he’s doing that!
Toby Regbo
387
After all those years as a woman hearing ‘not thin enough, not pretty enough, not smart enough, not this enough, not that enough,’ almost overnight I woke up one morning and thought, ‘I’m enough.’
388
Time makes fools of us all. Our only comfort is that greater shall come after us.
E. T. Bell
389
If a patient is cold, if a patient is feverish, if a patient is faint, if he is sick after taking food, if he has a bed-sore, it is generally the fault not of the disease, but of the nursing.
390
I boldly assert, in fact I think I know, that a lot of friendships and connections absolutely depend upon a sort of shared language, or slang. Not necessarily designed to exclude others, this can establish a certain comity and, even after a long absence, re-establish it in a second.
391
After two world wars, the collapse of fascism, nazism, communism and colonialism and the end of the cold war, humanity has entered a new phase of its history.
Hans Kung
392
You remember that my great vision came to me when I was only nine years old, and you have seen that I was not much good for anything until after I had performed the horse dance near the mouth of the Tongue River during my eighteenth summer.
393
You know what a champion is? A champion is someone who’s ready when the gong rings – not just before, not just after – but when it rings.
Jack Dempsey
394
You may have heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. There’s another day you might want to know about: Giving Tuesday. The idea is pretty straightforward. On the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, shoppers take a break from their gift-buying and donate what they can to charity.
395
I think Clinton, after getting into office and into Washington, was shocked at being bludgeoned. So he spent time trying to be all things to all people – one way guaranteed not to be successful or respected in a lion’s den. You can’t just play around with all those big cats – you’ve got to take somebody on.
396
Entertainment is there to improve people’s quality of life. After your basic needs, there’s entertainment.
397
The man who is a pessimist before 48 knows too much; if he is an optimist after it, he knows too little.
398
There was a time Michael Jackson couldn’t get his video on MTV because he was considered to be ‘urban.’ The Michael Jackson. So I literally have to be the Michael Jackson of apparel in order to break down the doors for everyone who will come after I’m gone, after I’m dead.
399
When times are tough, constant conflict may be good politics but in the real world, cooperation works better. After all, nobody’s right all the time, and a broken clock is right twice a day.
400
After it is all over, the religion of man is his most important possession.
401
I always feel good after I change my hair. You get a haircut and feel positive and ready to take on the day.
402
Nature cannot be tricked or cheated. She will give up to you the object of your struggles only after you have paid her price.
403
I listened, motionless and still; And, as I mounted up the hill, The music in my heart I bore, Long after it was heard no more.
404
We do survive every moment, after all, except the last one.
405
I will remember this day for the rest of my life. There is nothing you can say. It’s just like you won the match after the earthquake and it just feels great.
Elena Vesnina
406
The defects and faults of the mind are like wounds in the body; after all imaginable care has been taken to heal them up, still there will be a scar left behind, and they are in continual danger of breaking the skin and bursting out again.
407
Sun-bleached bones were most wonderful against the blue – that blue that will always be there as it is now after all man’s destruction is finished.
408
I became real good friends with John Stockton and Karl Malone and am still good friends with them to this day. It was always good to go see them and then play with them in the 1996 Olympics as well. I idolized John Stockton at the time, I tried to model my game after him.
409
During the Cold War, America undertook serious military cuts only once: after the election of Richard Nixon, during the Vietnam War. The result: Vietnam fell to the Communists, the Russians moved into Afghanistan, and American influence around the globe waned dramatically.
410
Life isn’t meant to be easy. It’s hard to take being on the top – or on the bottom. I guess I’m something of a fatalist. You have to have a sense of history, I think, to survive some of these things… Life is one crisis after another.
411
Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.
412
After my debut film, I was doing reality shows and hosting so it was not that I had nothing else to do.
413
It’s not like after winning an award, your job is done and you can relax. You still have to work hard.
414
I loved ghost stories, creaky staircases, stormy nights. If it guaranteed nightmares I read it by flashlight, after midnight.
415
Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn’t people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight remains to them?
416
The dictum that truth always triumphs over persecution is one of the pleasant falsehoods which men repeat after one another till they pass into commonplaces, but which all experience refutes.
417
I think the path is different for everybody. Go after the doors that are open to you. That has always been my motto getting into the music business. Do the things that seem to be good opportunities and work hard at it. Try to make good decisions and be nice. Hopefully all of that will pay off at some point.
418
I’ve played with IVs before, during and after games. I’ve played with a broken hand, a sprained ankle, a torn shoulder, a fractured tooth, a severed lip, and a knee the size of a softball. I don’t miss 15 games because of a toe injury that everybody knows wasn’t that serious in the first place.
419
I am alone a lot, which is good. I need that time to just be alone after a long day, just decompress. So, I go to either my house or the hotel, or my apartment, or whatever – wherever I am, I go home and I watch TV and I sit there, with my cat, and I just watch TV or go online, check my emails.
420
It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.
421
The problem with writing about religion is that you run the risk of offending sincerely religious people, and then they come after you with machetes.
422
A great man is one who leaves others at a loss after he is gone.
423
We had a severely autistic kid in my class, and I was always picked last in gym class, even after him. Naturally, that made me feel pretty bad as an eight-year-old.
424
We go to the theater to be entertained, but if what is left after you watch the movie is a sort of eye-opening perspective on some social issues, then it can be a really powerful piece of art.
425
Don’t sell yourself short because without that you can’t go far in life because after sports the only thing you know is sports and you can’t do anything else with that.
426
You can’t call it an adventure unless it’s tinged with danger. The greatest danger in life, though, is not taking the adventure at all. To have the objective of a life of ease is death. I think we’ve all got to go after our own Everest.
427
I used to play golf. I wanted to be a better player, but after a while, I realized I’d always stink. And that’s when I really started to enjoy the game.
428
Comebacks are not at all easy. After a major surgery, the difficult part is to conquer the inner demons. It’s all in the mind. Only an individual can overcome his fears.
429
My mother had morning sickness after I was born.
430
Good communication is just as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after.
431
To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. ‘Tis much better to do a little with certainty & leave the rest for others that come after you.
432
Of course I like to watch myself bat. After every innings, match, series, I do watch my own videos whenever I get the time.
433
Prudence does not mean failing to accept responsibilities and postponing decisions; it means being committed to making joint decisions after pondering responsibly the road to be taken.
434
Cyberspace‘ as a term is sort of over. It’s over in the way that, after a certain time, people stopped using the suffix ‘-electro’ to make things cool, because everything was electrical. ‘Electro’ was all over the early 20th century, and now it’s gone. I think ‘cyber‘ is sort of the same way.
435
Perhaps it’s good for one to suffer. Can an artist do anything if he’s happy? Would he ever want to do anything? What is art, after all, but a protest against the horrible inclemency of life?
436
After coming into contact with a religious man I always feel I must wash my hands.
437
Elections should be held on April 16th- the day after we pay our income taxes. That is one of the few things that might discourage politicians from being big spenders.
438
Don’t taunt the alligator until after you’ve crossed the creek.
439
You know, I always root for the older athlete. I root for the second album. I root for solo careers after the rock star breaks the band apart.
440
Mistakes are, after all, the foundations of truth, and if a man does not know what a thing is, it is at least an increase in knowledge if he knows what it is not.
441
The first and worst of all frauds is to cheat one’s self. All sin is easy after that.
Pearl Bailey
442
‘Mr. India‘ was a turning point. Before that, Hindi moviegoers saw me just as a glamour girl. After ‘Mr. India,’ they felt I could act.
443
People always think that the worst time of my life must have been after the German Grand Prix crash in 1976, which put me in a coma and left me with severe burns. But it wasn’t.
444
Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days.
445
For the impious act begets more after it, like to the parent stock.
446
Wall Street apparently takes and then forgets, and then comes after the guns of law-abiding American citizens and small businesses.
447
A comfortable house is a great source of happiness. It ranks immediately after health and a good conscience.
448
I worry about putting food on the table, paying for my kids needs, their college fees in years to come. It’s about earning enough to have a living to be able to look after your children.
449
People would tell me, especially after my marriage to Prince, ‘You need to write a book because you’ve had a crazy life.’
450
I ate supper after Dad saw the evening shift down the shaft, and I went to sleep to the ringing of a hammer on steel and the dry hiss of an arc welder at the little tipple machine shop during the hoot-owl shift.
451
It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.
452
Their mothers had finally caught up to them and been proven right. There were consequences after all but they were the consequences to things you didn’t even know you’d done.
453
We look before and after, And pine for what is not; Our sincerest laughter With some pain is fraught; Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought.
454
Pepsi is the second-most-recognized beverage brand in the world after Coke, and eighteen of PepsiCo’s other brands, which include Tropicana, Gatorade, and Quaker Oats, are billion-dollar businesses in their own right.
John Seabrook
455
After a natural disaster, safe drinking water is a priority. Humans can live longer without food than water, so communication about clean water is essential to help avoid the risk of cholera, dysentery, malnutrition, famine, and death.
456
Smiles, tears, of all my life! – and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
457
After the situation with Kursk submarine, I started looking at Mr. Berezovsky in a completely different way. For me, it was a turning point in our relationship. I think that he took a completely dishonorable position.
Roman Abramovich
458
See you later, alligator. After a while, crocodile.
Bill Haley
459
If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things.
Rene Descartes
460
It’s an incredible con job when you think about it, to believe something now in exchange for something after death. Even corporations with their reward systems don’t try to make it posthumous.
461
Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.
Theodore Isaac Rubin
462
I remember just lying in the grass, staring at the clouds, wondering where they drifted off to after they floated over Texas. I never would have imagined that one day I would follow one of those clouds and find myself in Hollywood.
Renee Zellweger
463
Let’s not burn the universities yet. After all, the damage they do might be worse.
464
Of course, it does depend on the people, but sometimes I’m invited places to kind of brighten up a dinner table like a musician who’ll play the piano after dinner, and I know you’re not really invited for yourself. You’re just an ornament.
465
Life goes on after a breakup.
466
I intend to leave after my death a large fund for the promotion of the peace idea, but I am skeptical as to its results.
467
I heard that after you throw away a ‘New York Times,’ it takes over a hundred years for the lies to biodegrade.
468
Most of the people who will walk after me will be children, so make the beat keep time with short steps.
Hans Christian Andersen
469
After reading the Elon Musk book and getting a Tesla – he is at the top of my list of inspiring founders.
470
All beautiful and noble qualities have been united in me… I shall be the fruit which will leave eternal vitality behind even after its decay. How great must be your joy, therefore, to have given birth to me.
Egon Schiele
471
I think it is the height of ignorance to believe that the sexual act is an independent function necessary like sleeping or eating. Seeing, therefore, that I did not desire more children, I began to strive after self-control. There was endless difficulty in the task.
472
Doctors look after me. But, basically, I look after myself. I don’t overeat. I don’t develop a big paunch. I do a little bit of exercise. At the same time, I believe that if you don’t work, you will decay. The decay process is through not using your faculties – not using your brain, not using your body.
473
After thirty, a body has a mind of its own.
474
After a hard day, choosing to do something to help you feel better – as opposed to staying in a bad mood – is a healthy skill.
475
After my ski jumping career finished, I went back to school to study law, and now I travel between five to 20 times a year doing after-dinner speaking, motivational talks, appearances, openings, TV and radio shows.
476
I don’t really love the guitar hero trip, anyway, so it’s not something I’m actively searching for or after. I don’t like what it’s about.
477
After a certain number of years, our faces become our biographies.
478
I am (even after all the torture) amazed at British logic. Never in eight centuries have they succeeded in breaking the spirit of one man who refused to be broken. They have not dispirited, conquered, nor demoralised my people, nor will they ever.
Bobby Sands
479
Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
480
After all, God is God because he remembers.
481
Each generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it.
482
The flight was extremely normal… for the first 36 seconds then after that got very interesting.
Pete Conrad
483
I struggled to kick the habit – I would make a decision to give up smoking, but it was hard. I couldn’t resist the urge to steal a smoke. It was at that time that I was gifted Allen Carr’s book ‘The Easy Way to Stop Smoking.’ After I read that book, I didn’t touch a fag again.
484
Everything else is irrelevant after the bliss of giving a perfect shot.
485
I remember my first test in F1. After five laps, I came back to the pits and tried to play it cool – ‘Oh yeah, I’m fine, I’m on top of this’ – but I was completely lost.
486
I think any show after the Super Bowl will have huge numbers.
487
Well, I’m in my 60s now. I finally look it, I think. People until I was 60 would always say they thought I looked younger, which I think, without flattering myself, I did, but I think I certainly have, as George Orwell says people do after a certain age, the face they deserve.
488
In order to acquire a growing and lasting respect in society, it is a good thing, if you possess great talent, to give, early in your youth, a very hard kick to the right shin of the society that you love. After that, be a snob.
489
I’m worth more dead than alive. Don’t cry for me after I’m gone; cry for me now.
490
It’s also selfish because it makes you feel good when you help others. I’ve been helped by acts of kindness from strangers. That’s why we’re here, after all, to help others.
491
A man may be a pessimistic determinist before lunch and an optimistic believer in the will’s freedom after it.
492
Let us be sure that those who come after will say of us in our time, that in our time we did everything that could be done. We finished the race; we kept them free; we kept the faith.
493
As a parent, it’s my responsibility to equip my child to do this – to grieve when grief is necessary and to realize that life is still profoundly beautiful and worth living despite the fact that we inevitably lose one another and that life ends, and we don’t know what happens after death.
494
See, ‘A Time to Kill’ was the one I got famous off of. Big ka-boom, over one weekend. After that, I did films that I really wanted to do.
495
When you taste super-success after tasting super-failure, there is huge relief.
496
I just want to live happily ever after, every now and then.
497
I remember, in my first show in New York, they asked, ‘Where is the Indian-ness in your work?’… Now, the same people, after having watched the body of my work, say, ‘There is too much Indian philosophy in your work.’ They’re looking for a superficial skin-level Indian-ness, which I’m not about.
A. Balasubramaniam
498
What is faith but a kind of betting or speculation after all? It should be, I bet that my Redeemer liveth.
499
I take it that what all men are really after is some form or perhaps only some formula of peace.
500
The colors live a remarkable life of their own after they have been applied to the canvas.
501
The less I behave like Whistler’s mother the night before, the more I look like her the morning after.
Tallulah Bankhead
502
Modern man is in crisis. He has degenerated from the redoubtable pillar he became through centuries of refinement and slipped resignedly into the popular depiction of himself as a witless under-achiever, incapable of looking after himself or those around him.
503
To consult the statistician after an experiment is finished is often merely to ask him to conduct a post mortem examination. He can perhaps say what the experiment died of.
Ronald Fisher
504
After a workout, you definitely have to have a protein shake. I drink my six-pound whey protein all the time, too. I throw some fruit in there – strawberries, blueberries – with some peanut butter and banana, and it gives you all the recovery you need from a hard day of lifting and running.
505
After you’ve done all the work and prepared as much as you can, what the hell, you might as well go out and have a good time.
Benny Goodman
