As long as white people put people of color, African Am

Socialism violates at least three of the Ten Commandments: It turns government into God, it legalizes thievery and it elevates covetousness.

It’s one of these things that I’ve been struck by for so long about America. You know, this amazing politeness of American life that’s not at all class specific.

People often ask how my hair has that supreme fullness even at midnight. Here’s a trick that one of our Fox News stylists taught me: Backcomb your hair just at the crown for height, and then put a large velcro roller there and wear it for as long as you can. I keep rollers in until showtime.

Mankind is like dogs, not gods – as long as you don’t get mad they’ll bite you – but stay mad and you’ll never be bitten. Dogs don’t respect humility and sorrow.
Our fear of hypocrisy is forcing us to live in a world where gluttons are fine, so long as they champion gluttony.
It doesn’t matter how long my hair is or what colour my skin is or whether I’m a woman or a man.
I gave up hunting a long time ago.
My lawyer has been a good friend of mine for a long time. He and I continuously have conversations.
I’m like a ‘comeback kid’ – you can’t keep me down for long!
Not how long, but how well you have lived is the main thing.
The public will believe anything, so long as it is not founded on truth.
Edith Sitwell
Sometimes a person has to go a very long distance out of his way to come back a short distance correctly.
Journalists say a thing that they know isn’t true, in the hope that if they keep on saying it long enough it will be true.
Arnold Bennett
It’s not how fast you get there, but how long you stay.
Patty Berg
The excitement of learning separates youth from old age. As long as you’re learning you’re not old.
The fact is that the learning process goes on, and so long as the voices are not stilled and the singers go on singing some of it gets through.
Morris West
I’m in favour of innovation, just as long as the game does not suffer for it.
Kant‘s style is so heavy that after his pure reason, the reader longs for unreasonableness.
Short cuts make long delays.
I learned a long time ago that you need to bury the hatchet. No need to hold grudges. That only weighs you down.
I’m one of the most adaptable guys I know in as much as travelling is my favourite thing to do in life. With every place I go, I try to stay there long enough to do it justice, long enough so that I can at least imagine what it would be like to live there. Once I imagine that, then it’s OK for me to return home.
I’ve worked in a factory. I was a garbage man. I worked in a post office. It’s not that long ago. I like to think that I’m just a regular guy.
Home is here in Philadelphia. I never like to be away too long.
Grace Kelly
It's been a long road for me, with a lot of ups and dow

It’s been a long road for me, with a lot of ups and downs. Thankfully there have been more ups than there have been downs. For me, what brings me down has only made me stronger because of it.
The thing which attracted me to Google and to the Internet in general is that it’s a great equalizer. I’ve always been struck by the fact that Google search worked the same, as long as you had access to a computer with connectivity, if you’re a rural kid anywhere or a professor at Stanford or Harvard.
For having lived long, I have experienced many instances of being obliged, by better information or fuller consideration, to change opinions, even on important subjects, which I once thought right but found to be otherwise.
Truth is mysterious, elusive, always to be conquered. Liberty is dangerous, as hard to live with as it is elating. We must march toward these two goals, painfully but resolutely, certain in advance of our failings on so long a road.
Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and under the rule of a just God, cannot long retain it.
Lying in bed would be an altogether perfect and supreme experience if only one had a colored pencil long enough to draw on the ceiling.
You have to knock doors, make calls, and build a relationship with voters long before Election Day.
If you persevere long enough, if you do the right things long enough, the right things will happen.
Ian Millar
There is nothing wrong with being well off as long as money has a social and ethical value and is not the object of one’s own greed.
Aga Khan IV
Every life is precious to God. God created every one of us. He gave us a soul, and that soul will live as long as God lives.
When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.
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.
I gave up my struggle with perfection a long time ago. That is a concept I don’t find very interesting anymore. Everyone just wants to look good in the photographs. I think that is where some of the pressure comes from. Be happy. Be yourself, the day is about a lot more.
The army of the sea shall stand before the city, then shall go away for a passage that shall not be very long, as a great prey of citizens shall be holding the ground. The fleet returns. The great emblem recovered.
