I hope our wisdom will grow with our power, and teach us, that the less we use our power the greater it will be.
Our focus needs to be less on what our legacy’s going to be or how we can control each other and more how we can give to each other.
We invest less in our friendships and expect more of friends than any other relationship. We spend days working out where to book for a romantic dinner, weeks wondering how to celebrate a partner or parent’s birthday, and seconds forgetting a friend’s important anniversary.
As a long-time registered Democrat who started voting in the year of Watergate, I resent being taken for a ride to the place where anything goes and nothing matters. And especially where nothing matters less than clear thinking and straight talk.
In societies no less than individuals, acknowledging our limitations may ultimately be more humane than denying them.
The less you open your heart to others, the more your heart suffers.
The pursuit of excellence is less profitable than the pursuit of bigness, but it can be more satisfying.
I’m excited about there being more of a sisterhood these days. Back in the ’90s there was a lot of hate – the women I looked up to as artists were dissing me! It’s not so patriarchal these days – there’s more love and a lot less hate!
I always wear make-up as I’ve never seen the point of looking less than your best.
When I dare to be powerful – to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.
It is not the cause for which men took up arms that makes a victory more just or less, it is the order that is established when arms have been laid down.
The more centralized the power, the less compromises need to be made in architecture.
Large corporations, of course, are blinded by greed. The laws under which they operate require it – their shareholders would revolt at anything less.
The year 2100 will see eugenics universally established. In past ages, the law governing the survival of the fittest roughly weeded out the less desirable strains. Then man’s new sense of pity began to interfere with the ruthless workings of nature. As a result, we continue to keep alive and to breed the unfit.
Just sharing things that are either embarrassing or possibly relatable, searching for that laugh so that someone makes me feel less alone. Like, ‘Oh, they laughed, so they get what I’m saying.
I’m getting excited before every single game. The trophy at the end is less important than the process itself.
The sooner we get started with alternative energy sources and recognize that fossil fuels makes us less secure as a nation, and more dangerous as a planet, the better off we’ll be.
The more wit the less courage.
If one considered life as a simple loan, one would perhaps be less exacting. We possess actually nothing; everything goes through us.
The less effort, the faster and more powerful you will be.
I consider looseness with words no less of a defect than looseness of the bowels.
The average life expectancy of a celebrity is 20 years less than someone working in a coal mine.
That the sun will not rise tomorrow is no less intelligible a proposition, and implies no more contradiction, than the affirmation, that it will rise.
We should be trying to make education less expensive, not more.
If things are too easy, life is a whole lot less interesting.
The less men think, the more they talk.
When leaders know how to lead great meetings, there’s less time wasted and less frustration. We have more energy to do the work that matters, realize our full potential, and do great things.
We expect well-informed treatment for cancer or heart disease; it matters no less for depression.
However rare true love may be, it is less so than true friendship.
It is the advertiser who provides the paper for the subscriber. It is not to be disputed, that the publisher of a newspaper in this country, without a very exhaustive advertising support, would receive less reward for his labor than the humblest mechanic.
