Don't judge me by my success, judge me by how many times I fell down and got up again
Even a tombstone says good things about a fellow who's down.
Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky, We fell them down and turn them into paper, That we may record our emptiness.
And when he fell in whirlwind, he went down As when a lordly cedar, green with boughs, Goes down with a great shout upon the hills, And leaves a lonesome place against the sky.
It is understanding that gives us an ability to have peace.
When we understand the other fellow's viewpoint, and he understands ours, then we can sit down and work out our differences.
The Volunteer AT dawn, he said, I bid them all farewell,To go where bugles call and rifles gleam.And with the restless thought asleep he fell,And glided into dream.A great hot plain from sea to mountain spread, -Through it a level river slowly drawn:He moved with a vast crowd, and at its headStreamed banners like the dawn.There came a blinding flash, a deafening roar,And dissonant cries of triumph and dismay;Blood trickled down the river's reedy shore,And with the dead he lay.The morn broke in upon his solemn dream,And still, with steady pulse and deepening eye,Where bugles call, he said, and rifles gleam,I follow, though I die!
We had every problems starting a big top could have.
The tent fell down on the first day. We had problems getting people into the shows. It was only with the courage and arrogance of youth that we survived.
If I have to move up in a building, I choose the elevator over the escalator.
Because one time I was riding the escalator and I tripped. I fell down the stairs for an hour and a half.
Yes; quaint and curious war is! You shoot a fellow down you'd treat if met where any bar is, or help to half-a-crown.
The worst was when my skirt fell down to my ankles, but I had on thick tights underneath.
How these curiosities would be quite forgot, did not such idle fellowes as I put them down.
If you fell down yesterday, stand up today.
If I fell down and hurt myself, I never cried. There was no one to hear me.
But the funny thing is, I broke my finger not on set doing kung fu.
I broke my finger when I fell down the stairs prior to going on set.
In Goodfellas they have this one scene where the camera goes down some steps and walks through a kitchen into a restaurant and the critics were all over this as evidence of the genius of Scorsese and Scorsese is a genius.
The one image that's been causing a lot of discussion is one image that I shot of a man falling head-first from the building, before the buildings fell down. He was trapped in the fire, and decided to jump and take his own life, rather than being burned.
Fellow citizens, we cannot escape history.
We, of this Congress and this administration, will be remembered in spite of ourselves. No personal significance, or insignificance, can spare one or another of us. The fiery trial through which we pass will light us down in honor or dishonor, to the latest generation.
There was a stool there, and some fella kept asking me if I wanted to sit down.
When I saw the stool sitting there, it gave me the idea. I'll just put the stool out there and I'll talk to Mr. Obama and ask him why he didn't keep all of the promises he made to everybody.
When I had a fellowship at the Smithsonian, I asked for a couch in the office because I liked to lie down and take a break.
Obviously I was disappointed when it fell into disuse, because it was my own track named after me, but I am sure all those youngsters we lost will be coming back, and I certainly intend to be down here as much as I can, coaching and advising.
A politician is a fellow who will lay down your life for his country.
