Inspirational Quotes from Sherlock

My name is Sherlock Holmes. It is my business to know what other people don’t know.

You have a grand gift for silence, Watson. It makes you quite invaluable as a companion.

Amazing Quotes from Sherlock Holmes
Sherlock Holmes and Watson

Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.

Now is the dramatic moment of fate, Watson, when you hear a step upon the stair which is walking into your life, and you know not whether for good or ill.

I am an omnivorous reader with a strangely retentive memory for trifles.

When one tries to rise above Nature one is liable to fall below it.

We must look for consistency. Where there is a want of it we must suspect deception.

In my profession all sorts of odd knowledge comes useful.

The giant rat of Sumatra, a story for which the world is not yet prepared.

I am not the law, but I represent justice so far as my feeble powers go.

When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

Inspirational Sherlock Holmes Novel Quotes
Sherlock is Interrogating a Lady

A complex mind. All great criminals have that.

Good old Watson! You are the one fixed point in a changing age.

To let the brain work without sufficient material is like racing an engine. It racks itself to pieces.

Everything in this world is relative, my dear Watson.

Education never ends Watson. It is a series of lessons with the greatest for the last.

There is but one step from the grotesque to the horrible.

Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself; but talent instantly recognizes genius.

It is a capital mistake to theorise in advance of the facts.

Come, Watson, come! The game is afoot. Not a word! Into your clothes and come!

Let us hear the suspicions. I will look after the proofs.

It is impossible as I state it, and therefore I must in some respect have stated it wrong.

One should always look for a possible alternative, and provide against it. It is the first rule of criminal investigation.

What one man can invent another can discover.

There is no prospect of danger, or I should not dream of stirring out without you.

There is nothing more stimulating than a case where everything goes against you.

I had little doubt that I had come to the end of my career when I perceived the somewhat sinister figure of the late Professor Moriarty standing upon the narrow pathway which led to safety.

Novel Quotes from Sherlock Holmes
Sherlock Holmes, Genius Detective

Out of my last 53 cases 49 have been given full credit to the police and the rest to me.

If I were assured of your eventual destruction I would, in the interests of the public, cheerfully accept my own.

It is of the highest importance in the art of detection to be able to recognize, out of a number of facts, which are incidental and which vital. Otherwise your energy and attention must be dissipated instead of being concentrated.

Results without causes are much more impressive.

Any truth is better than indefinite doubt.

Nothing clears up a case so much as stating it to another person.

Data! Data! Data! I can’t make bricks without clay.

Violence does, in truth, recoil upon the violent, and the schemer falls into the pit which he digs for another.

It is, of course, a trifle, but there is nothing so important as trifles.

You know my method. It is founded upon the observation of trifles.

It is not so impossible, however, that a man should possess all knowledge which is likely to be useful to him in his work, and this, I have endeavoured in my case to do.

Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent.

It is quite a three pipe problem, and I beg that you won’t speak to me for fifty minutes.

It is a capital mistake to theorize before you have all the evidence. It biases the judgment.

I never guess. It is a shocking habit — destructive to the logical faculty.

Love Quotes from Riley Andersen

Joy

Do you ever look at someone and wonder, what is going on inside their head?

Isn’t this fun?

You remember how she used to stick her tongue out when she was colouring? I could listen to her stories, all day. I just wanted Riley to be happy…

But the really important ones are here. I don’t want to get too technical but these are called Core Memories. Each one came from a super important time in Riley’s life, like when she first scored a goal. That was so amazing!

This is Disgust. She basically keeps Riley from being poisoned, physically and socially.

Think positive!

Come on, group hug! You too, Anger.

These are Riley’s memories, and they’re mostly happy if you notice. Not to brag.

Oh, it’s that time in the twisty tree, remember? The hockey team showed up and Mom and Dad were there cheering. Look at her, having fun and laughing. It’s my favorite.

Hey, look! The golden gate bridge! Isn’t that great? It’s not made out of solid gold like we thought, which is kind of a disappointment, but still!

[After makes Riley laugh for the first time] It was amazing! Just Riley and me, forever. Um, for thirty-three seconds.

Well, I have to practice! And I don’t think of it so much as playing more so as “hugging”! Okay! First day of school! Very very exciting! I was up late last night figuring out a new plan. Here it is!

[Talk to “herself”] Joy! You’ll be in charge of the console, keeping Riley happy all day long! And did I mention I love your dress, its adorable?

Can I say that curse word now?

No, Joy. There’s absolutely no reason for Riley to be happy right now. Let us handle this.

Congratulations San Francisco, you’ve ruined Pizza! First the Hawaiians, and now YOU!

Don’t touch me!

[To Riley’s dad] Wait, did he just say we couldn’t have dessert? So that’s how you wanna play it old man? No dessert? Oh sure, we’ll eat our dinner, right after you eat THIS!

Well, what would you do if you’re so smart?

Might come in handy, if this new school is full of boring, useless classes. WHICH it probably will be!

This is ridiculous! We can’t even get a good nights sleep anymore. Time to take action! Stupid mom and dad hadn’t of moved us, none of this would have happened. Who’s with me?

Hey! Our life was perfect before mom and dad decided to move to… San Fran-State Town!

Sadness

I Wanted To Maybe Hold One

Crying helps me slow down and obsess over the weight of life’s problems

I’m too sad to walk. Just give me a few… hours.

Okay… I’m positive that you’ll get lost in there!

Yeah, it was the day the Prairie Dogs lost the big playoff game. Riley missed the winning shot. She felt awful. She wanted to quit. Sorry, I went sad again, didn’t I?

Remember the funny movie where the dog died?

Goodbye Friendship! Hello Loneliness!

Oh, he doesn’t love us anymore. That’s sad. I-I should drive, right?

25 Life and Love Quotes from Kenshin Himura

Anime and Manga Quotes from Kenshin Himura

Life Quotes from Kenshin Himura

You can die anytime, but living takes true courage.

Helping other people is the best way to make up for your mistakes.

The scar of my past will determine my future!

You can use whatever technique you like, but now that I said I will kill you… your death tonight has been assured.

You will not touch these innocent people with even one inch of your dirty blades, if you require an opponent, I will fight you. If you wanna taste the ground, feel free to attack me.

New eras don’t come about because of swords, they’re created by the people who wield them.

I want you to understand something. If you should lose, not only does your future end, but also the future of the one you are trying to protect. Defeat isn’t an option for the sword that protects others. You should keep that thought engraved in your heart.

We shouldn’t blame ourselves for bad things that happened to us. Sometimes, no matter what we do, we are victims of the circumstances. We should just have to pull ourselves out.

The dead don’t desire revenge, but the happiness of the living.

Accepting one’s own strength, and the strength of others, is an important quality of a swordsman.

If fighting could provide us with the truth, nobody would make any mistakes in their lives. A person’s life is not that easy. The truth you must learn from yourself, from how you live your life.

We once fought together for an ideal with our swords. It wasn’t for power or for glory, but to create a peaceful world where people could live without fear. And if you should forget about that, then what did we fight the revolution for?

I have no attachment to the name Hitokiri Battousai. Just the same, I can’t allow someone like you to wear it.

A manslayer is a manslayer… until the day he dies.

Kenshin Himura the Manslayer
Life Quotes from Kenshin Himura

You believe that the strong exist to cull the weak. To use them as food. But you are mistaken… The strong exist, not to feed off of the weak, but to protect them!

When I was at the brink of life and death, I used all of my will to survive. I drew upon a different power than that of self-sacrifice and mastered an ultimate technique. The will to live is stronger than anything else. That was the ray of light that my master risked his life to show me. As Hitokiri Battousai, I have committed so many crimes that I cannot possibly repent for them. That is why I had secretly believed that it didn’t matter when I died or was killed. However, now… even if I am formally punished or restrained. I will never lose the will to live.

When one person kills, resentment is born. That resentment makes a person kill again. To sever that vicious cycle–that is the purpose of this sword that cannot kill.

Love Quotes from Kenshin Himura

Perhaps the distant part of the sky always seems clearest, so that we will always strive to reach it.

The moment you find the courage to give up your life for someone… Would be the moment you understand love.

In this world of memories, there’s no need for strangers.

Kenshin Himura Quotes about Love
Love Quotes from Live Action Movie Rurouni Kenshin

What is truly good about a person can’t be expressed in words, that it can not. What matters is the feeling of trust one gets after spending time with him.

I will bear your pain for you now, and find a path of repentance.

A sword is a weapon. The art of swordsmanship is learning how to kill. What Miss Kaoru says is sweet and innocent talk that only those whose hands have never been stained with the blood of men can believe. But, to tell you the truth, I much prefer Miss Kaoru’s sweet and innocent talk over the truth. Indeed I do!

You’ll only realize that you truly love someone if they already caused you enormous pain. Your enemies can never hurt you the way your loved ones can. It’s the people close to your heart that can give you the most piercing wound. Love is a double-edged sword, it can heal the wound faster or it can sink the blade even deeper.

28 Itachi Uchiha Quotes About Love, Life and Achievement

Love Quotes from Itachi Uchiha

Itachi Quotes About Love

“To love someone, it doesn’t matter what clan you are in, or what you’re capable of doing…but to be able to do this, there is one exception…The one who you care about the most, is who you must love.”

“No matter what you decide to do from now on… I will love you forever.”

“No. I’m telling you to learn to forgive yourself for not being omnipotent. It’s because we can’t do everything ourselves that we have friends to fill in the gaps. They also make sure we don’t undervalue the things we can do. If you want to know who you are, look at your true self once more, and accept what you see. I failed to do this. I lied to everyone, and I spent my life deceiving myself as well. Those who cannot accept themselves will fail. Just like I once did.”

“I have to apologize … that I can’t be with you through it all. Still, I hope you don’t falter from your path and keep moving forward as a Leaf Ninja. I … believe in you.”

“[Last words to Sasuke, pokes his forehead] Forgive me, Sasuke. There won’t be another time.”

“We are unique siblings. I am the barrier you must overcome, so you and I will continue to exist together.”

“Now I see it… People hate and fear what they don’t understand. Pathetic.”

Itachi Quotes About Life

“No single thing is perfect by itself. That’s why we’re born to attract other things to make up for what we lack. I think we start walking in the right direction only after we start getting our counterparts beside us.”

“Knowledge and awareness are vague, and perhaps better called illusions. Everyone lives within their own subjective interpretation.”

“People live their lives bound by what they accept as correct and true. That’s how they define reality.”

Itachi Uchiha from Konoha
Life Quotes from Itachi Uchiha

“It is not wise to judge others based on your own preconceptions and by their appearances.”

“You aren’t even worth killing, foolish little brother.”

“Even the strongest of opponents always has a weakness.”

“It is foolish to fear what we’ve yet to see and know!!”

“I’ve had enough… There’s no hope left for this worthless clan.”

“Your fate is already within my grasp.”

“That is Izanami. The jutsu that decides fate.”

Itachi Quotes About Achievement

“Those who can’t acknowledge their real selves are bound to fail.”

“Go away. You don’t interest me at the moment.”

“How long can you, a person that does not posses the bloodline limit, deal with this?”

“This is what happens when you are skilled. Power causes you to become isolated and arrogant.”

“How can we evolve when regulation is all we know?”

“You don’t become a Hokage in order to be acknowledged by the village, the one who is acknowledged by everyone in the village is the one who becomes the Hokage.”

Itachi Uchiha is a member of Akatsuki
Achievement Quotes from Itachi Uchiha

“Forgive yourself on what you aren’t able to do, if you want to know who you are, you have to look at your real self and acknowledge what you see.”

“The words of a failure making excuses. Are you telling me to admit my limitations and give up?”

“Now I feel that maybe knowing who I actually am is the key to reach perfection. I also couldn’t understand who I was.”

“You Sasuke! You will become my new light!!”

“Obsessed with the organization, obsessed with the clan, obsessed with our lineage… A worthless compulsion that enslaves us and limits our capabilities, leading us to fear what you don’t understand.”

23 Jennifer Lawrence Life Quotes and Sayings

Quotes from the actress of Katniss Everdeen

In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress. I eat like a caveman. I’ll be the only actress that doesn’t have anorexia rumors! I’m never going to starve myself for a part. I’m invincible. I don’t want little girls to be like “Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I’m going to skip dinner!”.

I am just a normal girl and a human being, and I haven’t been in this long enough to feel like this is my new normal.

I never felt like I completely, 100% understood something so well as acting.

The miserable ones are the ones where all the girls auditioning are in the same room. There’s no talking in those rooms. I’ve tried. Yesterday, I had to do an interview. I was in a horrible mood. I couldn’t think of basic words. I could see my publicist in the background, mouthing things to say. They want you to be likable all the time, and I’m just not.

Where are the Robert Redfords and Paul Newmans of my age group? I love James Franco, but where’s the next James Franco? Where are the hunks who can act?

It’s always been about the script and the director, for me. There are directors that I want to work with and that I admire. You can love a script, but if it doesn’t have a good director, it won’t be that. I like to adapt to a director’s way of working. I love doing that. Each director is so different, and you have to adapt to this new way of doing something. That’s what’s amazing to me. That’s why I love directors. I don’t want the director to have to work around me. I think it’s more fun for me to come in on their thing.

To you it looks emotionally straining, but I don’t get emotionally drained, because I don’t invest any of my real emotions. I don’t take any of my characters’ pain home with me, I don’t even take it to craft services. I’ve never been through anything that my characters have been through. And I can’t go around looking for roles that are exactly like my life. So I just use my imagination. If it ever came down to the point where, to make a part better, I had to lose a little bit of my sanity, I wouldn’t do it. I would just do comedies.

Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid. Everybody’s like “How can you remain with a level head?”. And I’m like “Why would I ever get cocky? I’m not saving anybody’s life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies. It’s stupid.”.

There are actresses who build themselves, and then there are actresses who are built by others. I want to build myself.

I’d like to direct at some point. But I don’t know because 10 years ago I would have never imagined that I’d be here. So in 10 years from now, I might be running a rodeo.

I look at Kristen Stewart now and I think, “I’d never want to be that famous.” I can’t imagine how I’d feel if all of a sudden my life was pandemonium.

I’m doing what I love, and then I get months and months of rest. I have a lot of money for a 21-year-old. I can’t stand it when actors complain.

I hate saying, “I like exercising.” I want to punch people who say that in the face. But it’s nice being in shape for a movie, because they basically do it all for you. It’s like “Here’s your trainer. This is what you can eat.” I don’t diet. I do exercise! But I don’t diet. You can’t work when you’re hungry, you know?

Jennifer will Punch Those People
Jennifer Lawrence Saying about Working Out

I always felt dumber than everybody else (in school). I hated it. I hated being inside. I hated being behind a desk. School just kind of killed me.

I don’t really diet or anything. I’m miserable when I’m dieting and I like the way I look. I’m really sick of all these actresses looking like birds… I’d rather look a little chubby on camera and look like a person in real life, than look great on screen and look like a scarecrow in real life.

I like when things are hard; I’m very competitive. If something seems difficult or impossible, it interests me.

I think it gets so much easier to let things roll off your back. It’s such a business of hurry up and wait, and if you let it get to you it will drive you absolutely insane. Like “Why was I called in at four in the morning and I haven’t been used until one in the afternoon?”. And “Why are we shooting this a million times when we have five other scenes to shoot?”. But you get to the point where you just say “This is filmmaking. This is what you get paid for. Everybody is doing the best they can. It’s what you have to live with.”.

Don’t worry about the bitches – that could be a good motto, because you come across people like that throughout your life.

Don't worry about Bitches
Jennifer Lawrence Quote on Bitches

My parents saw me so truly happy that they sacrificed everything for my happiness. Without my family, I would be nothing.

I have this feeling of protectiveness over characters I want to play. I worry about them – if someone else gets the part, I’m afraid they won’t do it right; they’ll make the character a victim or they’ll make her a villain or they’ll just get it wrong somehow. … When I get like that, anything’s possible.

When I first got to New York, my feet hit the sidewalk and you’d have thought I was born and raised there. I took over that town. None of my friends took me seriously. I came home and announced, “I’m going to move to New York,” and they were like “Okay.” Then when I did, they kept waiting for me to fail and come back. But I knew I wouldn’t. I was like “I’ll show you.”.

I never play characters that are like me because I’m a boring person. I wouldn’t want to see me in a movie.

Maybe one day, I’ll turn into an asshole. But there are too many out there already.

25 Amazing Quotes from Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger Quotes on Body Building

build up your body quotes from arnie
Amazing arnold schwarzenegger quotes on body building

I’m addicted to exercising and I have to do something every day.

The last three or four reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That’s what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they’ll go through the pain no matter what happens.

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.

Bodybuilding is much like any other sport. To be successful, you must dedicate yourself 100% to your training, diet and mental

I was striving to be the most muscular man, and it got me into the movies. It got me everything that I

Arnold Schwarzenegger Quotes on Life

great life quotes from arnie
Amazing arnold schwarzenegger quotes on life

The writing is important, but the way you say the line and the pause you give it, the facial expression – all of that is very important.

For me life is continuously being hungry. The meaning of life is not simply to exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer.

My relationship to power and authority is that I’m all for it. People need somebody to watch over them. Ninety-five percent of the people in the world need to be told what to do and how to behave.

I am a big believer in education, because when I grew up in Austria – when I grew up in Austria I had a great education. I had great teachers.

The resistance that you fight physically in the gym and the resistance that you fight in life can only build a strong character.

I don’t suffer of anything that I’ve lost.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Quotes on America

american citizenship quotes from arnie
Amazing arnold schwarzenegger quotes on USA

As long as I live, I will never forget that day 21 years ago when I raised my hand and took the oath of citizenship. Do you know how proud I was? I was so proud that I walked around with an American flag around my shoulders all day long.

No matter the nationality, no matter the religion, no matter the ethnic background, America brings out the best in people.

Freedom is a right ultimately defended by the sacrifice of America’s servicemen and women.

The success I have achieved in bodybuilding, motion pictures, and business would not have been possible without the generosity of the American people and the freedom here to pursue your dreams.

As you know, I’m an immigrant. I came over here as an immigrant, and what gave me the opportunities, what made me to be here today, is the open arms of Americans. I have been received. I have been adopted by America.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Quotes on Film

Terminator film quotes from arnie
Amazing arnold schwarzenegger quotes on Film

I have a love interest in every one of my films: a gun.

I’ll be back

My friend James Cameron and I made three films together – True Lies, The Terminator and Terminator 2. Of course, that was during his early, low-budget, art-house period.

If my life was a movie, no one would believe it.
