Quotes with cold
Although the shooting war is over, we are in the midst of a cold war which is getting warmer.
Speech before the Senate’s Special Committee Investigating the National Defense Program (1948)
In 1968, I became vegetarian after realizing that animals feel afraid, cold, hungry, and unhappy like we do….It was my dog Boycott who led me to question the right of humans to eat other sentient beings.
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.
Speech to the American Society of Newspaper Editors "The Chance for Peace" (April 16, 1953)
The ideal view for daily writing, hour on hour, is the blank brick wall of a cold-storage warehouse. Failing this, a stretch of sky will do, cloudless if possible.
A kind of magic
Suggested remedy for the common cold: A good gulp of whiskey at bedtime — it’s not very scientific, but it helps.
Christmas in Bethlehem. The ancient dream: a cold clear night made brilliant by a glorious star, the smell of incense, shepherds and wise men falling to their knees in adoration of the sweet baby, the incarnation of perfect love.
Pilgrimage to Bethlehem. Published in The New York Times on December 23, 1984.
A work of art in itself is a gesture and it may be warm or cold, inviting or repellent.
The Art Spirit (1984)
Let me go back one moment. In the Cuban Missile Crisis, at the end, I think we did put ourselves in the skin of the Soviets. In the case of Vietnam, we didn't know them well enough to empathize. And there was total misunderstanding as a result. They believed that we had simply replaced the French as a colonial power, and we were seeking to subject South and North Vietnam to our colonial interests, which was absolutely absurd. And we, we saw Vietnam as an element of the Cold War. Not what they saw it as: a civil war.
The Fog of War
The man who doesn't respond to music, the man without music in his soul is not to be trusted. A man like that is cold and empty, empty to the core.
It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.
"Citizenship in a Republic." Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910
I heard a rumor I died, Murdered in cold blood dramatized, Pictures of me in my final state, You know mama cried, But that was fiction, Some coward got the story twisted, Like I no longer existed, Mysteriously missin’, I’m known worldwide, baby, I ain’t hard to find.
I would rather have been shot straight-up in cold blood-but to be set up? By people who you trusted? That's bad.
When a person comes to die, no matter what their talents and influence and genius, if they die unloved their life must be a failure to them and dying is a cold horror. It seems to me that if you or I choose between two courses of thought or action we should remember our dying and try so to live that our death brings no pleasure to the world.
Iron rusts from disuse; stagnant water loses its purity and in cold weather becomes frozen; even so does inaction sap the vigor of the mind.
The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci
If the campaign is in summer the general must show himself greedy for his share of the sun and the heat, and in winter for the cold and the frost, and in all labours for toil and fatigue. This will help to make him beloved of his followers.
This is our fault. Doctors over-prescribing antibiotics. Got a cold? Take some penicillin. Sniffles? No problem. Have some azithromycin. Is that not working anymore? Well, got your Levaquin. Antibacterial soaps in every bathroom. We'll be adding vancomycin to the water supply soon. We bred these superbugs. They're our babies. And they're all grown up and they've got body piercings and a lot of anger.
House, Maternity. By Dr. Gregory House.
