There are two levers for moving men - interest and fear.

One bad general is worth two good ones.
It should not be believed that a march of three or four days in the wrong direction can be corrected by a countermarch. As a rule, this is to make two mistakes instead of one.
Ability is of little account without opportunity. I have very rarely met with two o'clock in the morning courage: I mean instantaneous courage.
Washington is dead! This great man fought against Tyranny; he established the liberty of his country. His memory will always be dear to the French people, as it will be to all free men of the two worlds; and especially to French soldiers, who, like him and the American soldiers, have combated for li
There are two kinds of fidelity, that of dogs and that of cats; you, gentleman, have the fidelity of cats who never leave the house.
As to moral courage, I have very rarely met with the two o'clock in the morning kind. I mean unprepared courage, that which is necessary on an unexpected occasion, and which, in spite of the most unforeseen events, leaves full freedom of judgement and decision.
There are two merits that glorify a person: being courageous for a man and being virtuous for a woman. Besides these two, there is another merit that glorifies both man and woman: so much loving the homeland to an extent with being ready to sacrifice his/her life, if needed. Turks are such courageou
There are only two forces that unite men - fear and interest. All great revolutions originate in fear, for the play of interests does not lead to accomplishment.
I do not believe it is in our nature to love impartially. We deceive ourselves when we think we can love two beings, even our own children, equally. There is always a dominant affection.
There are only two forces in the world, the sword and the spirit. In the long run the sword will always be conquered by the spirit.
Men are moved by two levers only: fear and self interest.
There are only two forces that unite men - fear and interest.
Two armies are two bodies which meet and try to frighten each other.
Fearless is not the absence of fear. Fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you.
It was a time of great loneliness. He had a group of friends, and suddenly I had no one and did not understand why. I felt excluded. Some days, the majority was in high school and did not know who to talk to. And that is something really terrible when you're twelve years old.
I had the most magical childhood, running free and going anywhere I wanted to in my head. Taylor S
I've wanted one thing for me whole life and I'm not going to be that girl who wants one thing her whole life then gets it and complains.
My attitude has always been if you get better and you see success, that should motivate you to even work harder, so that's kinda how I approach everything.
Being a powerful woman who also exhibits great warmth is an incredible feat because people think that to be powerful you have to be cold, and you don't.
I think that the idea of having a different approach to every single one of my albums is so exciting to me. I never want to make the same record twice. Why do it? What's the point?
I've written all my songs on every single one of my records, and that's what's been fun about looking back.
I really like Lady GaGa and everything she is for her fans. Taylor Swif
I think that you can love people without it being the great love.
You never imagine that when you say hello to someone and you fall in love, that some day you'll have to say goodbye.
In recent years, you've probably read the articles about major recording artists who have decided to practically give their music away, for this promotion or that exclusive deal. My hope for the future, not just in the music industry, but in every young girl I meet...is that they all realize their w
At some point, you grow out of being attracted to that flame that burns you over and over and over again.
When you hear people making hateful comments, stand up to them. Point out what a waste it is to hate, and you could open their eyes.
A few years have gone and come around when we were sittin' at our favorite spot in town and you looked at me, got down on one knee. Take me back to the time when we walked down the aisle; the whole town came and our mammas cried. And you said "I do.", and I did, too. Take me home where we met so man
I still like to live in a whimsical world that seems more romantic and fantasy-related because real life seems so hard
I began absolutely non-stop tormenting my parents, begging them on a daily basis to move there.
Words can break someone into a million pieces, but they can also put them back together. I hope you use yours for good, because the only words you'll regret more than the ones left unsaid are the ones you use to intentionally hurt someone.
In the beginning I remember when I would spend three hours a day on MySpace just trying to comment everyone back, and now, I spend a half hour a night on MySpace just putting up new stuff and answering people back and monitoring all the fan sites, and saying hi and thank you. I'm still way on top of
One thing I've tried to never do is make wish lists. I try to have a very steppingstone mentality about this whole thing, where as soon as you make one step you visualize the next step, not five steps ahead.
