Top Everyman For Himself Quotes

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Michael Eric Dyson

George Bush ran a campaign where he bragged about being an anti-intellectual, dismissing his Harvard and Yale pedigree, pretending he was an American every day, ordinary everyman, and as a result of that, played up his fumbling speech because it signified that he was a good guy. That is deeply and profoundly anti-intellectual. — Michael Eric Dyson

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Jason Bateman

I really enjoy playing that everyman part because that part is us, the audience. And you need somebody inside a comedy to tether the absurdity to reality. — Jason Bateman

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Herbert Read

The greatest intensification of the horrors of war is a direct result of the democratisation of the State. So long as the army was a professional unit, the specialist function of a limited number of men, war remained a relatively harmless contest for power. But once it became everyman's duty to defend his home (or his political "rights") warfare was free to range wherever that home might be, and to attack every form of life and property associated with that home. — Herbert Read

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Ray Metzker

I never wanted to make portraits - to photograph celebrities, beautiful people, beautiful landscapes, beautiful buildings, or people in distressing situations ... I have always been interested in everyman - average, ordinary people in everyday situations. — Ray Metzker

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Guy Garvey

The British press isn't as vicious as it used to be, and these days it's sort of cool to care again. Everyone loves an everyman anthem. — Guy Garvey

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Gay Talese

While the quest for adventure that had long plagued him now tempted him to remove his clothes, an even more persuasive force within him prevented him from doing so, mainly because he feared revealing for the first time in front of so many people that unpredictable organ he assumed was everyman's burden- although, as he was apparent from the number of flaccid phalli he saw around him, no man seemed burdened tonight except himself. — Gay Talese

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Kenny Ortega

Patrick Swayze reminded me a lot of Gene Kelly. Patrick had that Everyman quality. Gene made dancing sort of an accessible idea for the regular guy out there. — Kenny Ortega

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Kenneth Patchen

Everyman is me. I am his brother. No man is my enemy. I am Everyman and he is in and of me. This is my faith, my strength, my deepest hope, and my only belief. — Kenneth Patchen

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Atul Gawande

It is not death that the very old tell me they fear. It is what happens short of death - losing their hearing, their memory, their best friends, their way of life. As Felix put it to me, "Old age is a continuous series of losses." Philip Roth put it more bitterly in his novel Everyman: "Old age is not a battle. Old age is a massacre. — Atul Gawande

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Jack Lemmon

People are probably correct when they see me as the so-called Everyman. I'm attracted primarily to contemporary characters. I understand them and their frustrations. — Jack Lemmon

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Allen Ginsberg

The world is holy! The soul is holy! The skin is holy!
The nose is holy! The tongue and cock and hand
and asshole holy!
Everything is holy! everybody's holy! everywhere is
holy! everyday is in eternity! Everyman's an
angel! — Allen Ginsberg

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Mehmet Murat Ildan

Everyman and every living being have the same birth day: The birthday of the universe is our real birthday! — Mehmet Murat Ildan

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Jackson Browne

Waiting here for Everyman
Make it on your own if you think you can
If you see somewhere to go I understand
I'm not trying to tell you
That I've seen the plan
Turn and walk away if you think I am
But don't think too badly
Of one who's left holding sand
He's just another dreamer,
Dreaming 'bout Everyman. — Jackson Browne

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Kurt Fuller

I am not a member of the chamber of commerce for show business, believe me, but there are some really good people in the business, and [Tom] Hanks has this everyman decency onscreen, but he actually is that guy. — Kurt Fuller

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Paul D. Escott

The past is the occupational realm of historians - their daily work - and scholars have debated what their stance toward these social issues should be. As citizens and professionals, historians may naturally form a desire, as Carl Becker puts it, "to do work in the world." That is, they might aspire to write history that is not only of scholarly value but also has a salutary impact in society. Becker defines the appropriate impact and the historian's proper role as "correcting and rationalizing for common use Mr. Everyman's mythological adaption of what actually happened."

That process is never simple, however, when the subject involves divisions so deep that they led to civil wars. One issue that inevitably leads to controversy is the extent to which history involves moral judgment. Another is the power of myths, exerting their influence on society and acting in opposition to the findings of historical research [190 - 91]. — Paul D. Escott

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Mehmet Murat Ildan

No man is disbeliever! Everyone is believer! All men believe in something! If a man does not believe in God, He is a believer too, because he simply believes that God does not exist! Don't give yourself airs just because you believe in something since everyman believes in something! Always be humble! — Mehmet Murat Ildan

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Mehmet Murat Ildan

Inside a dark well, everyman's favourite colour is blue! — Mehmet Murat Ildan

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Jason Segel

Kermit was the Everyman, the original Tom Hanks, but I have a special place in my heart for Fozzie Bear. The classic borderline hacky entertainer. — Jason Segel

Everyman For Himself Quotes By C. Wright Mills

P4- the history that now effects everyman is world history — C. Wright Mills

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Jeremy Allen White

I think 'Shameless' is more of an everyman's show, whereas as great as I think 'Girls' is, it's got a smaller audience. — Jeremy Allen White

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Thomas Jefferson

The way to have good and safe government is not to trust it all to one, but to divide it among the many, distributing to everyone exactly the functions in which he is competent ... It is by dividing and subdividing these Republics from the great national one down through all its subordinations until it ends in the administration of everyman's farm by himself, by placing under everyone what his own eye may superintend, that all will be done for the best. — Thomas Jefferson

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Rene Char

Midnight is not in everyman's reach. — Rene Char

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Sylvan Barnet

We can say that Faustus makes a choice, and that he is responsible for his choice, but there is in the play a suggestion - sometimes explicit, sometimes only dimly implicit - that Faustus comes to destruction not merely through his own actions but through the actions of a hostile cosmos that entraps him. In this sense, too, there is something of Everyman in Faustus. The story of Adam, for instance, insists on Adam's culpability; Adam, like Faustus, made himself, rather than God, the center of his existence. And yet, despite the traditional expositions, one cannot entirely suppress the commonsense response that if the Creator knew Adam would fall, the Creator rather than Adam is responsible for the fall; Adam ought to have been created of better stuff. — Sylvan Barnet

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Simon Pegg

I've only played two sort-of slackers, in Spaced and in Shaun Of The Dead. They're different people, but they have the same kind of everyman quality, particularly as a twentysomething. — Simon Pegg

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Kato Kaelin

I'm the guy, I'm kind of like the, uh, Everyman, so I think people just relate to that. — Kato Kaelin

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Mehmet Murat Ildan

We keep saying that we humans are all in the same boat. This is only physically true, but not mentally! For instance Stephen Hawking lives mentally on the space! Not everyman mentally lives on this planet! — Mehmet Murat Ildan

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Mehmet Murat Ildan

Because of poverty and ignorance, not everyman living on earth lives in the same epoch! — Mehmet Murat Ildan

Everyman For Himself Quotes By John Irving

Finches are seed eaters, but Dr. Daruwalla didn't know this, nor did the doctor know that the green parrot perching on the vine had feet with two toes pointing forward and two backward. These were the details he missed, and they contributed to the growing list of things he didn't know. This was the kind of Everyman he was - a little lost, a little misinformed (or uninformed), almost everywhere he ever was. — John Irving

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Garrison Keillor

Travel is the art form available to Everyman. You sit in the coffee shop in a strange city and nobody knows who you are, or cares, and so you shed your checkered past and your motley credentials and you face the day unarmed ... And onward we go and some day in the distant future, we will stop and turn around in astonishment to see all the places we've been and the heroes we were. — Garrison Keillor

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Irving Stone

How could he have been so stupid, so blind? David pictured after Goliath could be no one but the biblical David, a special individual. He was not content to portray one man; he was seeking universal man, Everyman, all of whom,from the beginning of time,
had faced a decision to strike for freedom — Irving Stone

Everyman For Himself Quotes By John Redwood

Conservatism must be based on allowing everyone to become an owner - equity for everyman. — John Redwood

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Channing Tatum

It's a hard thing for me to wrap my mind around the C word: celebrity. Rock stars are celebrities because they're larger than life. As an actor, you have to play the everyman and the everygirl. If you start treating people in the real world like assistants, that's not a good look. But my friends keep me grounded. — Channing Tatum

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Andrew Scott

I've played all these extreme guys, but playing an everyman type has its own challenges. — Andrew Scott

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Knut Hamsun

God help me, how Tolstoy sweats over drying up people's sources of life, of wild and joyful life, drying them up and making the world fat with the love of God and everyman ... But the man is old, after all, his fountains of life run dry, without a trace remaining of human affections ... Only someone who has become slow and watertight with old age, satiated and hardened with pleasure, will go to youth and say, Renounce! ... And yet the youth renounces nothing, but sins royally for forty years. Such is the course of nature! — Knut Hamsun

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Steven Pressfield

Making a judgment, taking a stand and then acting against an injustice or acting to support excellence is the stuff of the everyman hero. If you are an aspiring artist and you wish to avoid "judgments," you'll find that you have nothing to say. — Steven Pressfield

Everyman For Himself Quotes By Shia Labeouf

People think that their vote counts. They go to college, and everything gets mixed up. People stop caring, ... They raise the gas prices, but what the Everyman makes and welfare never seem to keep up. The HMO system is so ridiculous. I'm slightly educated. No one wants to hear what Hilary Duff thinks of the economy. — Shia Labeouf
