Call Quotes - VI

Call Quotes - VI

1. Call it what you will, incentives are what get people to work harder. - Nikita Khrushchev

2. The Jersey Shore is the kind of place where the policeman has a little cottage that might have been in the family for years and many other people call home. - Bruce Springsteen

3. There is an ancient saying among men that you cannot thoroughly understand the life of mortals before the man has died, then only can you call it good or bad. - Sophocles

4. There was a line call that didn't look so great. I went ballistic. Called the umpire a jerk. Whacked a ball into the stands. Then smacked a soda can with my racket, and got soda all over the King of Sweden, who was sitting in the front row. - John McEnroe

5. What I call my 'self' now is hardly a person at all. It's mainly a meeting place for various natural forces, desires, and fears, etcetera, some of which come from my ancestors, and some from my education, some perhaps from devils. The self you were really intended to be is something that lives not from nature but from God. - C. S. Lewis

6. Ours is a nation of laws: of citizens who live under them and for the citizens who enforce them. So, to a community in Ferguson that is rightly hurting and looking for answers, let me call once again for us to seek some understanding rather than simply holler at each other. Let's seek to heal rather than to wound each other. - Barack Obama

7. Whether you call it Buddhism or another religion, self-discipline, that's important. Self-discipline with awareness of consequences. - Dalai Lama

9. The purpose of going to Mars is for humans to first begin to occupy, permanently, another planet in the solar system. The astronauts or pilgrims, whatever you might call them, are going to be very historically unique human beings. - Buzz Aldrin

10. The New Deal is plainly an attempt to achieve a working socialism and avert a social collapse in America; it is extraordinarily parallel to the successive 'policies' and 'Plans' of the Russian experiment. Americans shirk the word 'socialism', but what else can one call it? - H. G. Wells

11. O thou invisible spirit of wine, if thou hast no name to be known by, let us call thee devil. - William Shakespeare

12. We do not learn; and what we call learning is only a process of recollection. - Plato.
