“Mama always told me not to look into the sights of the sun. Oh, but mama, that’s where the fun is.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Some people hate the sight of me as soon as they see me on television. They loathe the look of me, and I accept that from the days of variety. I would walk on and some people would open a newspaper and think, ‘He’s first on, so he can’t be any good.’ I accept that.”

 

Bruce Forsyth

“In between effect and cause and just beyond the range of normal sight, this glittering joker was dancing in the dragon’s jaws.”

 

Bruce Cockburn

“The first quality of courage is the willingness to launch with no guarantees. The second quality of courage is the ability to endure when there is no success in sight.”

 

Brian Tracy

“To discover new continents, you must be willing to lose sight of the shore.”

 

Brian Tracy

“The future of network marketing is unlimited. There’s no end in sight. It will continue to grow because better people are getting into it . . . soon, it will be one of the most respected business methods in the world.”

 

Brian Tracy

“I am a musician before a writer, and a drawer before a writer. When I lose sight of that, which I do, my work tends to suffer.”

 

Brian Chippendale

“And then, for an old man like me, it’s not exactly right,This kind o’ playing soldier with no enemy in sight.”

Bret Harte

“People just… disappear,” he says. “The Earth just opens up and swallows people,” I say, some what sadly, checking my Rolex. “Eerie.” Kimball yawns, stretching. “Really eerie.” “Ominous.” I nod my agreement. “It’s just”- he sights, exasperated- “futile.”

Bret Easton Ellis

“The Ragamuffin rabble are the unsung assembly of saved sinners who are little in their own sight, conscious of their brokenness and powerlessness before God, and who cast themselves on His mercy. Startled by the extravagant love of God, they do not require success, fame, wealth, or power to validate their worth. Their spirit transcends all distinctions between the powerful and powerless, educated and illiterate, billionaires and bag ladies, high-tech geeks and low-tech nerds, males and females, the circus and the sanctuary.”

Brennan Manning

“It’s important not to lose sight of the fact people of all sorts are still putting themselves at risk. It happens to straight and gay, single and married. I have never been comfortable thinking of AIDS as something that ‘other people’ get.”

Brande Roderick

“It was like a miracle, but before our very eyes, and almost in the drawing of a breath, the whole body crumbled into dust and passed from our sight.”

Bram Stoker

“Nothing excites compassion, in friend and foe alike, as much as the sight of you ker-splonked on the Tarmac with your propeller buried six feet under.”

 

Boris Johnson

“One of the saddest sights to me has always been a human at a keyboard doing something by hand that could be automated. It’s sad but hilarious.”

 

Boris Beizer

“The actual sight of a first-class house that a Negro has built is ten times more potent than pages of discussion about a house that he ought to build, or perhaps could build.”

 

Booker T. Washington

“My philosophy is to take one day at a time. I don’t worry about the future. Tomorrow is even out of sight for me.”

 

Bobby Darin

“Most people are not going after what they want. Even some of the most serious goal seekers and goal setters, they’re going after what they think they can get. Set your sights higher.”

 

Bob Proctor

“We sometimes learn more from the sight of evil than from an example of good; and it is well to accustom ourselves to profit by the evil which is so common, while that which is good is so rare.”

 

Blaise Pascal

“Notwithstanding the sight of all our miseries, which press upon us and take us by the throat, we have an instinct which we cannot repress, and which lifts us up.”

 

Blaise Pascal

“Let us, then, take our compass; we are something, and we are not everything. The nature of our existence hides from us the knowledge of first beginnings which are born of the nothing; and the littleness of our being conceals from us the sight of the infinite. Our intellect holds the same position in the world of thought as our body occupies in the expanse of nature.”

 

Blaise Pascal
