10 QUOTES WITH «ONE'S»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word one's.
1
Jill Abramson
In one's relationship with dogs and with a newsroom, a generous amount of praise and encouragement goes much better than criticism.
2
Billie Joe Armstrong
No one's really happy anyway, it's not human.
3
Thomas Arnold
One's age should be tranquil, as childhood should be playful. Hard work at either extremity of life seems out of place. At midday the sun may burn, and men labor under it; but the morning and evening should be alike calm and cheerful.
4
Bob Barr
Taking privacy cues from the federal government is - to say the least - ironic, considering today's Orwellian level of surveillance. At virtually any given time outside of one's own home, an American citizen can reasonably assume his movements and actions are being monitored by something, by somebody, somewhere.
5
David Beckham
No one's ever really given me any style advice. I wear what I want, and it doesn't matter what other people think.
6
W. E. B. Du Bois
It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one's self through the eyes of others, of measuring one's soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity.
7
Harold Brodkey
Memory, so complete and clear or so evasive, has to be ended, has to be put aside, as if one were leaving a chapel and bringing the prayer to an end in one's head.
8
Rose Byrne
There's a lot of intensity when you're on a set. And then it just goes away and no one's giving you attention or flooding you with compliments.
9
Abraham Cahan
The dearest days in one's life are those that seem very far and very near at once.
10
Henri Cartier-Bresson
To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.
