Jupiter is so big and its gravitational pull so strong that man would find it difficult to move about on the surface.

Whittle Quotes By Jodie Foster

I really did feel like I was surrounded by family members. I didn't have a dad, and I remember there were all these guys - in the old days, there were no women, except a makeup artist or, occasionally, a script supervisor. So there were just guys who taught me how to, you know, whittle wood, or how to pull focus, and what the camera was doing. And if I was being bratty, they'd sit me down and tell me. There were lots of rules about not being late and making sure that you didn't spill anything. So it felt a little bit like I was in a family. — Jodie Foster

Whittle Quotes By Hugh Kingsmill

There are dons who care for the intellect and the imagination, and there are priests who care for the spirit; but broadly speaking the function of universities and churches alike is to trim and tame enthusiasm, to suppress curiosity, and, in short, to whittle immortal souls into serviceable props of the established order. — Hugh Kingsmill

Whittle Quotes By Dennis Lindley

I believe that almost all important, useful ideas are simple. Peter Whittle has recently put it nicely in an autobiographical essay. "If a piece of work is heavy and complicated then it is wrong." ... Some writers feel that to express their ideas in simple terms is degrading. Some use complexity to disguise the paucity of their material. In fact, simplicity is a virtue and when, as here, it is both original and useful, it can represent a real advance in knowledge. — Dennis Lindley

Whittle Quotes By Marcel Proust

Whittle Quotes By Bill Whittle

People can live without a giant state. We've proven that already. But a giant state cannot live without dependent people. We feed the beast that puts us in shackles of our own creation. They are dependent on us. We think of revolutions as gunfire in the streets. But a soft and creeping tyranny can be beaten with a soft and creeping revolution. Think about it. Think about all the ways the totalitarian state is dependent on your personal actions. Think about what you do every day to help feed this beast and then stop doing that! — Bill Whittle

Gentlemen, I give you the Whittle engine. — Frank Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Bill Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Nicholas Kristof

Most moms and dads, they want to be good moms and dads. But it's an incredibly hard job when you are stressed out, when you are poor, when your life is in chaos. And giving them some of the tools to be better parents, to whittle away at that parenting gap, gives those kids a much better starting point in life. — Nicholas Kristof

Whittle Quotes By Brad Pitt

You shouldn't speak until you know what you're talking about. That's why I get uncomfortable with interviews. Reporters ask me what I feel China should do about Tibet. Who cares what I think China should do? I'm a fucking actor! They hand me a script. I act. I'm here for entertainment. Basically, when you whittle everything away, I'm a grown man who puts on makeup. — Brad Pitt

Whittle Quotes By Billy Campbell

A great deal of my battle, as an actor, is to whittle away the things that make me self-conscious and try to trick myself into not being self-conscious. So, it's always a challenge, whether I'm lying in a hospital bed or flying around with a rocket pack on my back, or what have you. On the best of days, it's a challenge for me. — Billy Campbell

Whittle Quotes By Ricky Whittle

The best food I've had was actually in catering at 'Single Ladies.' It's insane. I can't live in Atlanta. In fact, even if I'm offered, I'm not sure I could come back for another six months, because I'll just be fat. — Ricky Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Bill Whittle

Civilizations fall because the people inside the Sanctuary throw open the gates. — Bill Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Tom Ford

Whittle Quotes By Bill Whittle

The reason the first three Star Wars movies were so terrific, and the second three sucked so bad, is actually very simple. The first three were about rebels, shooting guns and driving fast, and speaking with American accents. The second three were about politicians, discussing treaties and holding court, and speaking with British accents. — Bill Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Glenn Ford

Some actors count their lines as soon as they receive a script. I'm the opposite. I try to see how many lines I can whittle down. You can say just as much in 4 as you can in 14. — Glenn Ford

Whittle Quotes By T.D. Whittle

She liked to believe that she might embody a grace and dignity in death that eluded her in life. — T.D. Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Nick Morgan

A language like Ruby is a toolbox with some really neat little tools that do their job really nicely. JavaScript is a leather sheath with a really really sharp knife inside. That knife can cut anything, and with it you can do anything. You can kill a bear. You can catch fish. You can whittle a piece of wood into a pony. It's even a toothpick. — Nick Morgan

Whittle Quotes By Manprit Kaur

Don't whittle your potential, just because others don't believe in you. The only worthy question is "Do You Believe in You? — Manprit Kaur

Whittle Quotes By H.L. Mencken

No government is ever really in favor of so-called civil rights. It always tries to whittle them down. They are preserved under all governments, insofar as they survive at all, by special classes of fanatics, often highly dubious. — H.L. Mencken

Whittle Quotes By Donald J. Trump

Stop and think about it: even just leveling the playing field with China for a decade would be the equivalent of one-fifth of our national debt (and would have been one-third of our debt had we not elected the community organizer). You add in several hundred billion a year from putting OPEC in line, hundreds of billions from negotiating properly with the many other countries that are ripping us off, root out the hundreds of billions of incredible fraud that occur every year (more on that later), and now we have a debt problem America can manage - one where we can attack waste and abuse and whittle down the remaining debt to get our fiscal house in order. So that's the first step: bringing home the hundreds of billions of dollars that the petro thugs at OPEC and our enemy China steal from us every single year - and then go after all of the others. — Donald J. Trump

Whittle Quotes By Rachel Bilson

I like a man who can build things. Whittle me something out of wood and I'm sold. — Rachel Bilson

Whittle Quotes By Bill Whittle

Any idiot can build bombs. Our Trinity sits not on some desert sand seared into glass at an abandoned, sad pillar of stones. It's in our heads and our hearts, it's in our genes, this beautiful, gorgeous marriage of money, freedom and ingenuity. — Bill Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Bill Whittle

You tell the big lie by carefully selecting only the small, isolated truths, linking them in such a way that that advance the bigger lie by painting a picture inside the viewer's head. The Ascended High Master of this Dark Art is Noam Chomsky. — Bill Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Lydia Minatoya

There's a reason why I tell this story. To me these Sunday painters represent myo - the strangeness of beauty - an idea that transcendence can be found in what's common and small. Rather than wishing for singularity and celebrity and genius (and growing all gloomy in its absence), these painters recognize the ordinariness of their talents and remain undaunted.
It's the blessings in life, not in self, that they mean to express.
And therein lies the transcendence. For as people pursue their plain, decent goals, as they whittle their crude flutes, paint their flat landscapes, make unexceptional love to their spouses - in their numbers across cultures and time, in their sheer tenacity as in the face of a random universe they perform their small acts of awareness and appreciation - there is a mysterious, strange beauty. — Lydia Minatoya

Whittle Quotes By Suzanne Woods Fisher

They who trim themselves to suit others will soon whittle themselves away. — Suzanne Woods Fisher

Whittle Quotes By Bill Whittle

If it's ALL about me, it's NOT about MUCH! — Bill Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Grace Paley

I might write four lines or I might write twenty. I subtract and I add until I really hit something I want to do. You don't always whittle down, sometimes you whittle up. — Grace Paley

Whittle Quotes By Anna Funder

Though it is the hardest thing, to work out one's weight and heft in the world, to whittle down all that I am and give it a value. — Anna Funder

Whittle Quotes By Adele Griffin

Not that I was morbidly obese or anything. But I guess I was hanging on the hope that one day I might accidentally whittle down to my inner toothpick. — Adele Griffin

Whittle Quotes By Patsy Whittle

If you have something Negative to say, then, say it in a Positive way. Don't set out to hurt people or their careers. We all deserve a fighting chance to succeed at what we do. — Patsy Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Brian Christian

Indeed, as Peter Whittle recounts, during World War II efforts to solve the question so sapped the energies and minds of Allied analysts ... that the suggestion was made that the problem be dropped over Germany, as the ultimate instrument of intellectual sabotage. — Brian Christian

Whittle Quotes By Meg Wolitzer

Because the truth is, the world will probably whittle your daughter down. But a mother never should. — Meg Wolitzer

Whittle Quotes By Lisa Whittle

I remember what it feels like to come with open hands and heart and I am, again, awed by the Story of in the beginning, water into wine, love held by nails, the veil torn, resurrected life. He is real, more real than anything I will ever see with my eyes, hear with my ears, or touch with my hands. — Lisa Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Frank Whittle

I had always realized it was desirable to gear down the jet. — Frank Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Don Novello

Whittle Quotes By Charles Schwab

The man who trims himself to suit everybody will soon whittle himself away — Charles Schwab

Whittle Quotes By Sarah Dessen

I think part of the problem sometimes is that there's so much happening in my books, to whittle it down into a single script is hard. — Sarah Dessen

Whittle Quotes By Bill Whittle

We fight wars not to have peace, but to have a peace worth having. Slavery is peace. Tyranny is peace. For that matter, genocide is peace when you get right down to it. The historical consequences of a philosophy predicated on the notion of no war at any cost are families flying to the Super Bowl accompanied by three or four trusted slaves and a Europe devoid of a single living Jew. — Bill Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Rudyard Kipling

We have learned to whittle the Eden Tree to the shape of a surplice peg, We have learned to bottle our parents twain in the yelk of an addled egg. We know that the tail must wag the dog, for the horse is drawn by the cart, But the devil whoops, as he whooped of old; It's clever, but is it art? — Rudyard Kipling

Whittle Quotes By Bill Whittle

Treat your past as a book that you learn from instead of a hammer that you beat yourself up about. — Bill Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Kathleen Baldwin

Oh, I suppose they're not exactly gone, those green boys. It's rather like a sapling turning into a tree. Can't scrape off the bark, and whittle it down until you find that sapling again, now can you? No, of course not. The sapling becomes an oak. Forever changed. The realities of that war will remain inside us through heaven or hell. Best try and face it, Ty. Running from it won't help. You'll never turn back into the innocent sapling you once were." Robert lifted his glass and grinned. "My friend, we've become a pair of gnarled old trees. — Kathleen Baldwin

Whittle Quotes By Adam Hart-Davis

Whittle was an amazing chap. Tiny, stubborn, unstoppable - jet-propelled! It's amazing the impact his invention has had upon the world. — Adam Hart-Davis

Whittle Quotes By Ricky Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Chris Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Anthony Burgess

But if you eat this chap who's God,' said Llewelyn stoutly, 'how can it be horrible? If it's alright to eat God why is it horrible to eat Jim Whittle?'
'Because,' said Dymphna reasonably, ' if you eat God there's always plenty left. You can't eat God up because God just goes on and on and on and God can't ever be finished ... — Anthony Burgess

Whittle Quotes By Sylvia Plath

I can change, whittle my square edges to fit in a round hole. God, I hope I'm never going to massacre myself that way. — Sylvia Plath

Whittle Quotes By Will Durant

Civilization is a stream with banks. The stream is sometimes filled with blood from people killing, stealing, shouting and doing things historians usually record; while on the banks, unnoticed, people build homes, make love, raise children, sing songs, write poetry and even whittle statues. The story of civilization is the story of what happened on the banks. Historians are pessimists because they ignore the banks of the river. — Will Durant

Whittle Quotes By Kristan Higgins

Here. Let me untangle your hair, at least. If we need to run, we can't have you stuck."
"I don't think Bob's up for running," I said.
"Then you'll take my horse."
"What about you?"
"I'll stay here and whittle a sword and kill the bear or, if that doesn't work, I'll just be eaten alive, happily sacrificing my life for yours." He gave me a look. "Or I'll just stay on the horse and you can sit behind me. Satan can hold two, I'm sure."
"Oh, so you're a cowboy now? I wasn't aware that architects were also masters of horseflesh. You and Satan BFFs now? Practiced your stunt-riding this morning?"
"My dad gave me a few lessons."
"When? When you were six?"
"Well, you know, Harper, maybe we should just stay here and bicker until the bear can't stand it anymore and kills us both. Would that make you happy? — Kristan Higgins

Whittle Quotes By T.D. Whittle

If I start quoting myself, someone shoot me. My people are from Texas, so they'd know what to do. — T.D. Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Chris Whittle

If you could have a news program without commercials, it would be better. But is a news program with commercials better than no news program at all? My view was, I'll take the one with commercials versus no news program at all. — Chris Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Bill Whittle

There was a time when intellectual meant someone who uses reason and intellect. Today, people who call themselves intellectuals are in a form of mental death spiral: they search for, and find, those index cards that support their world view, and clutch little red books like rosaries in the face of all external evidence. They are ruled by appeals to authority. Their self-image and sense of emotional well-being trumps any and all objective evidence to the contrary. — Bill Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Bill Whittle

Government can take your money at gunpoint; businesses have to persuade you. — Bill Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Bill Whittle

Liberals want Conservatives to shut up. Conservatives want Liberals to keep talking. Because our arguments make sense and theirs don't — Bill Whittle

Whittle Quotes By Raymond Hull

He who trims himself to suit everyone will soon whittle himself away. — Raymond Hull
