Nowadays many Americans have forgotten the meaning and traditions of Memorial Day. At cemeteries across the country the graves of the fallen are sadly ignored and worse neglected.
I put the copy of 'A Christmas Carol' that my grandfather had first read to me 60 years ago on my desk and I began to write. The result for better or for worse is the 'Christmas Spirits.' I plan to read it to my grandson.
I'm so depressed. Christmas is the worst of all. Holidays are terrible worse than Sundays. I get melancholia.
I'm bad on Valentine's Day but even worse on Christmas. I go shopping at nine o'clock on December 24th every year. Nobody else is there. I'm in Toys'R'Us all by myself. I get there five minutes before closing.
To generalize on women is dangerous. To specialize on them is infinitely worse.
I don't think women are better than men I think men are a lot worse than women.
Whether women are better than men I cannot say - but I can say they are certainly no worse.
There are historic situations in which refusal to defend the inheritance of a civilization however imperfect against tyranny and aggression may result in consequences even worse than war.
Once we have a war there is only one thing to do. It must be won. For defeat brings worse things than any that can ever happen in war.
War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.
If Romney explains why where we are with Obama is unacceptable why whither we are tending is even worse - and why his own alternative path forward is superior - then we trust the American people to make the right choice in November.
The way I look at it everything is a trade. You acquire some money so then you've got no financial burdens but everyone wants your money and so who can you trust? Or you've got no money and you can trust anyone but then you've got the worry to pay bills. Which is worse?
Travel makes a wise man better and a fool worse.
All travel has its advantages. If the passenger visits better countries he may learn to improve his own. And if fortune carries him to worse he may learn to enjoy it.
It is not fit that every man should travel it makes a wise man better and a fool worse.
I think every entertainer's had nights when things go wrong. I mean you can't remember everything all the time and especially if you're having hard times personally things going on that you - you know and then people make it worse. And that makes you feel worse.
Waste is worse than loss. The time is coming when every person who lays claim to ability will keep the question of waste before him constantly. The scope of thrift is limitless.
I think there are worse things for a teen to be enraptured with than 'Twilight.'
The intellectual property situation is bad and getting worse. To be a programmer it requires that you understand as much law as you do technology.
When dealing in the technology it becomes a question of whether you overuse something. I think that's worse than having something technologically available to you and not using it.
A self-taught man usually has a poor teacher and a worse student.
If a man be gloomy let him keep to himself. No one has the right to go croaking about society or what is worse looking as if he stifled grief.
In fact I am quite snappy and irritable and I don't know if I'd like to make myself worse in that respect.
What I respect as far as in myself and in others is the spirit of just doing it. For better or worse it may work and it may not but I'm going to go for it. Ultimately I probably prefer to be respected for that than whether it works out or not either winning or losing.
