Perfectly

Total Quotes : 329
Church Very

When Christians start thinking about Jesus, things start breaking down, they lose their faith.

Own I Think

To be perfectly honest with you, having a mother as an actress - who I watched struggle tremendously during my childhood - and to watch fluctuations of ups and downs is difficult.

- Alice Eve

Becoming Very

Away I Think

And when I was young, my family was perfectly nice. I write a lot about it, as you noticed. But it was rather limited.

Love Doing

- Julian McMahon

May Need

- Julian Treasure

Beauty Some

The truth of the matter is, beauty is a specific thing, rare and fleeting. Some of us have it in our teens, 20s and 30s and then lose it; most of us have it not at all. And that's perfectly okay. But lying to yourself that you have it when you don't seems to me simple-minded at best and psychotic at worst.

- Banksy

Marriage Other

- Guido van Rossum

Think I Think

To morrow, I believe, is to be an eclipse of the sun, and I think it perfectly meet and proper that the sun in the heavens, and the glory of the Republic should both go into obscurity and darkness together.

- Benjamin F. Wade

Other Sure

Men who have reached and passed 45, have a look as if waiting for the secret of the other world, and as if they were perfectly sure of having found out the secret of this.
