Top Glitters Quotes

Glitters Quotes By Jack Vance

Star-watching: at night the stars of Alastor Cluster blaze in profusion. The atmosphere refracts their light; the sky quivers with beams, glitters, and errant flashes. The Trills go out into their gardens with jugs of wine; they name the stars and discusses localities. For the Trills, for almost anyone of Alastor, the night sky was no abstract empyrean, but rather a view across prodigious distances to known places: a vast luminous map. — Jack Vance

Glitters Quotes By Jaye Frances

Oh, I don't mean to infer that you're not a great guy. I'm sure you're the exception to the rule. — Jaye Frances

Glitters Quotes By John Dryden

For you may palm upon us new for old:
All, as they say, that glitters, is not gold. — John Dryden

Glitters Quotes By Vivek Thangaswamy

Have you ever been lost hope in what you believed so far in life as no meaning? And when started adapting to the life what you got and moving forward, suddenly something comes up and glitters a shine on the hope you lost belief. Your brain is never believed the glitter, but heart attracts to the stuff which you may get hurt. Why I am always been the victim of the life's crisis. Hope makes the life a life, in the meantime it is the source of all pains. — Vivek Thangaswamy

Glitters Quotes By Led Zeppelin

There's a lady who's sure
All that glitters is gold.
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
And when she gets there she knows
If the stores are closed.
With a word she can get what she came for.
There's a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure.
Cause you know sometimes words have
Two meanings.
In a tree by the brook there's a songbird
Who sings sometimes.
All of our thoughts are misgiven.
There's a feeling I get when I look
To the West.
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke
Through the trees.
And the voices of those who stand looking. — Led Zeppelin

Glitters Quotes By Joseph Addison

Men of warm imaginations and towering thoughts are apt to overlook the goods of fortune which are near them, for something that glitters in the sight at a distance; to neglect solid and substantial happiness for what is showy and superficial; and to contemn that good which lies within their reach, for that which they are not capable of attaining. Hope calculates its schemes for a long and durable life; presses forward to imaginary points of bliss; grasps at impossibilities; and consequently very often ensnares men into beggary, ruin, and dishonour. — Joseph Addison

Glitters Quotes By Joseph Addison

Mirth is like a flash of lightning that breaks through a gloom of clouds and glitters for a moment. — Joseph Addison

Glitters Quotes By Mason Cooley

In the great cities, winter glitters with art and feasting. But poetry, the country cousin, sees only the dearth of the fields. — Mason Cooley

Glitters Quotes By Catherynne M Valente

I thought: this is how you make a human being. A human being is beautiful and sick. A human being glitters and starves. — Catherynne M Valente

Glitters Quotes By Angel Mechelle

D.L Sparks author of All That Glitters. — Angel Mechelle

Glitters Quotes By Charlotte Bronte

Is it really for love he is going to marry you?" She asked.
I was so hurt by her coldness and scepticism that the tears rose to my eyes.
"I am sorry to grieve you," pursued the widow; "but you are so young, and so little acquainted with men, I wished to put you on your guard. It is an old saying that 'all is not gold that glitters;' and in this case I do fear there will be something found to be different to what either you or I expect. — Charlotte Bronte

Glitters Quotes By Roy Thomson

I have a magpie mind. I like anything that glitters. — Roy Thomson

Glitters Quotes By Uvi Poznansky

And in a blinding flash my wedding dress, which is hung right there, opposite me, in the corner of the bedroom, comes alive. The heavy satin rustles like it's just about to breathe. The lace trembles in the cold air. And for a moment the beading glitters. It blinks, like it's trying to bring back some memory. So bright, so dazzling!
Then the dress sinks back into the dark. — Uvi Poznansky

Glitters Quotes By Fleur Jaeggy

Father and daughter stand before the ship. She looks like a naval vessel. The red star glitters on the funnel. I look immediately at the lettering Proleterka. Blackened, patches of rust, forgotten. Sovereign lettering. The dusk is falling. The ship is large, she hides the sun that is about to sink into the water. She is darkness, pitch and mystery. A privateer built like a fortress, she has survived stormy weather and shipwreck. We go up the gangplank. The officers are waiting for us. We are the last. — Fleur Jaeggy

Glitters Quotes By Irin Carmon

When the jabot with scalloped glass beads glitters flat against the top of RBG's black robe, it's bad news for liberals. That's her dissent collar. — Irin Carmon

Glitters Quotes By Jane Goodall

When the night wind makes the pine trees creak
And the pale clouds glide across the dark sky,
Go out my child, go out and seek
Your soul: The Eternal I.
For all the grasses rustling at your feet
And every flaming star that glitters high
Above you, close up and meet
In you: The Eternal I.
Yes, my child, go out into the world; walk slow
And silent, comprehending all, and by and by
Your soul, the Universe, will know
Itself: the Eternal I. — Jane Goodall

Glitters Quotes By Charles Baxter

Because it is the Midwest, no one really glitters because no one has to, it's more of a dull shine, like frequently used silverware. — Charles Baxter

Glitters Quotes By Gregory Benford

Plaster holo screens against a mountain a full kilometer high, covering it until it glitters with a half million dancing images. Each holo used a quarter of a million pixels to shape its image, so the array musters immense representational power. Now compress those screens on a sheet of aluminum foil a millimeter thick. Crumple it. Stuff it into a grapefruit. That is the brain, a hundred billion neurons firing at varying intensities. Nature had accomplished that miracle, — Gregory Benford

Glitters Quotes By Scott Westerfeld

All that glitters is not hovery. — Scott Westerfeld

Glitters Quotes By Joe Meno

The city glitters past us with its sharp edges, reminding us of how tiny, how weak, how totally unimportant we are. — Joe Meno

Glitters Quotes By Martin Carter

The sharp knife of dawn glitters in my hand but how bare is everything-tall tall tree infinite air, the unrelaxing tension of the world and only hope, hope only, the kind eagle soars and wheels in flight. — Martin Carter

Glitters Quotes By Jodi Picoult

She told me she'd be a phoenix." The image of the mythical creature rising from the ashes glitters in my mind. "They don't really exist." "She said that depends on whether or not there's someone who can see them. — Jodi Picoult

Glitters Quotes By Megan Abbott

That's what people never understand: They see us hard little pretty things, brightly lacquered and sequin-studded, and they laugh, they mock, they arouse themselves. They miss everything. You see, these glitters and sparkle dusts and magicks? It's war paint, it's feather and claws, it's blood sacrifice. — Megan Abbott

Glitters Quotes By Debasish Mridha

Scars are the medals of success, not the glitters or the gold. — Debasish Mridha

Glitters Quotes By Martin Luther

If we Christians would join the Wise Men, we must close our eyes to all that glitters before the world and look rather on the despised and foolish things, help the poor, comfort the despised, and aid the neighbor in his need. — Martin Luther

Glitters Quotes By Ogden Nash

All that glitters is sold as gold. — Ogden Nash

Glitters Quotes By Vladimir Odoevsky

Pride is the chalice into which all human sins are poured: it glitters and jingles and its arabesque lures your gaze, while your lips involuntarily touch the seductive beverage. — Vladimir Odoevsky

Glitters Quotes By Louise Erdrich

The pattern glitters with cruelty. The blue beads are colored with fish blood, the reds with powdered heart. The beads collect in borders of mercy. The yellows are dyed with the ocher of silence. There is no telling which twin will fall asleep first, allowing the other's colors to dominate, for how long. The design grows, the overlay deepens. The beaders have no other order at the heart of their being. Do you know that the beads are sewn onto the fabric of the earth with endless strands of human muscle, human sinew, human hair? We are as crucial to this making as other animals. No more and no less important than the deer. — Louise Erdrich

Glitters Quotes By P. J. O'Rourke

The sky was so clear that the starlight cast shadows, and so many sparkles and glitters and glints appeared above us that it looked like something really expensive had been dropped and shattered in heaven - God's Steuben ashtray, maybe. — P. J. O'Rourke

Glitters Quotes By Alfie Kohn

In some suburban schools, the curriculum is chock-full of rigorous A.P. courses and the parking lot glitters with pricey SUVs, but one doesn't have to look hard to find students who are starving themselves, cutting themselves, or medicating themselves, as well students who are taking out their frustrations on those who sit lower on the social food chain. — Alfie Kohn

Glitters Quotes By Ufuoma Apoki

Gold when first struck is crowded with 'dirt', uncertain, might not be flashy enough to be noticed. However, if you are alert in your senses, you'd see that little glitter; if you're persistent enough, it'll be polished to be one of the finest 'possessions' you could ever acquire. The beauty about gold, though, is that in all states from uncertainty to conviction, it never for once gives up its lustre. We're sometimes too hasty and 'fly searching' that we miss the little uncertain glitters that sparkle in the corners of our eyes. In such rare moments, stop for a while, and hold on to it with the best grip you could muster. — Ufuoma Apoki

Glitters Quotes By Robin Sloan

He was a religious kid, and the goldsmith's trade turned him off. He spent all day melting old baubles down to make new ones - and he knew his own work was going to suffer the same fate. Everything he believed told him: This is not important. There is no gold in the city of God. — Robin Sloan

Glitters Quotes By Charles Spurgeon

When the pangs shoot through our body, and ghastly death appears in view, people see the patience of the dying Christian. Our infirmities become the black velvet on which the diamond of God's love glitters all the more brightly. Thank God I can suffer ! Thank God I can be made the object of shame and contempt, for in this way God shall be glorified. — Charles Spurgeon

Glitters Quotes By C.S. Lewis

The sword glitters not because the swordsman set out to make it glitter but because he is fighting for his life and therefore moving it very quickly. — C.S. Lewis

Glitters Quotes By Miguel De Cervantes

Tis an old saying, the Devil lurks behind the cross. All is not gold that glitters. From the tail of the plough, Bamba was made King of Spain; and from his silks and riches was Rodrigo cast to be devoured by the snakes. — Miguel De Cervantes

Glitters Quotes By Lauren Oliver

What glitters may not be gold; and even wolves may smile; and fools will be led by promises to their deaths. — Lauren Oliver

Glitters Quotes By Billy Graham

Satan is the illusive manipulator. He prances and dances and drinks in the adulation of his worshippers as he glimmers and shimmers, displaying all that glitters and all that attracts the shallowness of man. — Billy Graham

Glitters Quotes By Olaotan Fawehinmi

A man protects his fish from rats by keeping it under a cat's watch. How wise!
Another buys a gun for security reasons, but decides to kill a ghost with it. How smart!
One prays to God for safety, as he climbs a palm tree with sewing thread. How intelligent!
Man does not want the truth, and God does not want lies, yet there is no third option.
One pretends to be rich, yet has nothing. That's pride. Another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth. Humility!
Not all that glitters is gold, and not all gold glitters. Watch, with the eyes, and also with the heart.
Just because all things are lawful, don't make them expedient. And because a thing is right doesn't mean it edifies.
With Faith, Wisdom comes highly recommended! — Olaotan Fawehinmi

Glitters Quotes By Susan Jones

All that glitters is not gold, and there is also a lot of gold out there you don't see glittering. — Susan Jones

Glitters Quotes By Raheel Farooq

Everything that glitters more than gold is not gold. — Raheel Farooq

Glitters Quotes By Carolyn See

Women want a family life that glitters and is stable. They don't want some lump spouse watching ice hockey in the late hours of his eighteenth beer. They want a family that is so much fun and is so smart that they look forward to Thanksgiving rather than regarding it with a shudder. That's the glitter part. The stable part is, obviously, they don't want to be one bead on a long necklace of wives. They want, just like men, fun, love, fame, money and power. And equal pay for equal work. — Carolyn See

Glitters Quotes By Maeve Brennan

It is necessary to find one's own way in New York. New York City is not hospitable. She is very big and she has no heart. She is not charming. She is not sympathetic. She is rushed and noisy and unkempt, a hard, ambitious, irresolute place, not very lively, and never gay. When she glitters she is very, very bright, and when she does not glitter she is dirty. New York does nothing for those of us who are inclined to love her except implant in our hearts a homesickness that baffles us until we go away from her, and then we realize why we are restless. At home or away, we are homesick for New York not because New York used to be better and not because she used to be worse but because the city holds us and we don't know why. — Maeve Brennan

Glitters Quotes By Osamu Tezuka

What is one man's life compared to the eternity of time and space? No more than a snowflake that glitters in the sun for a moment before melting into the flow of time. — Osamu Tezuka

Glitters Quotes By Geoffrey Chaucer

all that glitters is not gold, — Geoffrey Chaucer

Glitters Quotes By Kate Alcott

It looks beautiful from out here, but nothing glitters quite as much when you get close up. — Kate Alcott

Glitters Quotes By Thomas Merton

Glitters Quotes By Anne Carson

We humans seem disastrously in love with this thing (whatever it is) that glitters on the earth
we call it life. — Anne Carson

Glitters Quotes By Amy Lowell

The inkstand is full of ink, and the paper lies white and unspotted, in the round of light thrown by a candle. Puffs of darkness sweep into the corners, and keep rolling through the room behind his chair. The air is silver and pearl, for the night is liquid with moonlight.
See how the roof glitters, like ice!
Over there, a slice of yellow cuts into the silver-blue, and beside it stand two geraniums, purple because the light is silver-blue, to-night. — Amy Lowell

Glitters Quotes By Charlotte Bronte

All is not gold that glittersCharlotte Bronte

Glitters Quotes By Gwen Hayes

If you are about to tell me you are a vampire that glitters in the sunshine, I will
Gwen Hayes

Glitters Quotes By Scott Westerfeld

Glitters Quotes By Cynthia Kadohata

My sister had taught me to look at the world that way, as a place that glitters, as a place where the calls of the crickets and the crows and the wind are everyday occurrences that also happen to be magic. — Cynthia Kadohata

Glitters Quotes By John Desmond Bernal

All that glitters may not be gold, but at least it contains free electrons. — John Desmond Bernal

Glitters Quotes By Mary Ellen Snodgrass

Bringing up teenagers is like sweeping back ocean waves with a frazzled broom-the inundation of outside influences never stops. Whatever the lure-cars, easy money, cigarettes, drugs, booze, sex, crime-much that glitters along the shore has a thousand times the appeal of a parent's lecture. — Mary Ellen Snodgrass

Glitters Quotes By Robert Montgomery

Beneath our feet a fairy pathway flows, The grass still glitters in the summer breeze, The dusky wood, and distant copse appear, And that lone stream, upon whose chequer'd face We mused, when noon-rays made the pebbles gleam, Is mirror'd to the mind: though all around Be rattling hoofs and roaring wheels, the eye Is wand'ring where the heart delights to dwell. — Robert Montgomery

Glitters Quotes By Ralph Waldo Emerson

More than the diamond Koh-i-noor, which glitters among their crown jewels, they prize the dull pebble which is wiser than a man, whose poles turn themselves to the poles of the world, and whose axis is parallel to the axis of the world. Now, their toys are steam and galvanism. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Glitters Quotes By Nas

Through the lights cameras and action, glamour glitters and gold
I unfold the scroll, plant seeds to stampede the globe ... — Nas

Glitters Quotes By Charles Haddon Spurgeon

A tested saint, like a well-cut diamond, glitters much in the King's crown. Nothing — Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Glitters Quotes By Kathleen Valentine

Tiny waterfalls trickle down over the rocks where they freeze and the ice glitters in the sunlight reflected off rock and snow. It is said that in the old times, when the early loggers came, the first tree cut down could not fall because the forest was so dense there was no place for it to land. — Kathleen Valentine

Glitters Quotes By Anne Carson

Now every mortal has pain
and sweat is constant,
but if there is anything dearer than being alive,
it's dark to me.
We humans seem disastrously in love with this thing
(whatever it is) that glitters on the earth
we call it life. We know no other.
The underworld's a blank
and all the rest just fantasy. — Anne Carson

Glitters Quotes By Jandy Nelson

She glitters like she walked out of a Klimt painting — Jandy Nelson

Glitters Quotes By Anthony Liccione

It's not what you have on the outside that glitters in light, it's what you have on the inside that shines in the dark. — Anthony Liccione

Glitters Quotes By Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Even dirt glitters when the sun is shining upon it — Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Glitters Quotes By Margarita Engle

Night simply drapes itself over the day
As if someone had lowered a curtain.
The sky glitters and moves,
Filled with shooting stars and fireflies. — Margarita Engle

Glitters Quotes By Winston Churchill

A medal glitters, but it also casts a shadow. — Winston Churchill

Glitters Quotes By Terry Pratchett

All that glitters is not gold; Often have you heard that told: Many a man his life has sold But my outside to behold: Gilded tombs do worms enfold Had you been as wise as bold, Your in limbs, in judgment old, Your answer had not been in'scroll'd Fare you well: your suit is cold.' Cold, indeed, and labour lost: Then, farewell, heat and welcome, frost! — William Shakespeare

Glitters Quotes By Oliver Goldsmith

All is not gold that glitters,
Pleasure seems sweet, but proves a glass of bitters — Oliver Goldsmith
