The thing with Catholicism, the same as all religions, is that it teaches what should be, which seems rather incorrect. This is what should be. Now, if you're taught to live up to a what should be that never existed - only an occult superstition, no proof of this should be - then you can sit on a jury and indict easily, you can cast the first stone, you can burn Adolf Eichmann, like that!

Lenny Bruce

The Nets' a stone throw from where I used to throw bricks
...So it's only right I'm still tossing 'round Knicks.


When I started working for Rolling Stone, I became very interested in journalism and thought maybe that's what I was doing, but it wasn't.

Annie Leibovitz

Sarah had a saying: Der gleichster veg iz ful mit shtainer." "What's it mean?" "The smoothest way is sometimes full of stones.

Julie Orringer

I had a vague memory of being that ridiculous at one time. Let he who hath never worn parachute pants cast the first stone.

Jim Butcher

When I started covering The Beatles and The Rolling Stones in a rock 'n' roll band, it helped me realize that my natural voice is actually really high. It helped me find my voice.


It's not set in stone. I like to keep it rolling and changing, and so I am like, "Great, I get to remake my song."

Andrew Bird

Mary Magdalene beat her breasts and sobbed,
His dear disciple, stone-faced, stared.
His mother stood apart. No other looked
into her secret eyes. Nobody dared.

Anna Akhmatova

It was a fatal day when the public discovered that the pen is mightier than the paving-stone and can be made as offensive as a brickbat.

Oscar Wilde

The most terrible thing about it is not that it breaks one’s heart—hearts are made to be broken—but that it turns one’s heart to stone.

Oscar Wilde

It was a fatal day when the public discovered that the pen is mightier than the paving-stone, and can be made as offensive as the brickbat. They at once sought for the journalist, found him, developed him, and made him their industrious and well-paid servant. It is greatly to be regretted, for both their sakes.

Oscar Wilde

Wordsworth went to the Lakes, but he was never a lake poet. He found in stones the sermons he had already hidden there.

Oscar Wilde

The saddest human experience is to view alone the scenes one has viewed through other eyes - to walk solitary where one has walked in company - to have its particular barbed shaft aimed at one from every stick and stone that mark familiar ways.

Katherine Cecil Thurston

I felt violated after certain scenes in the movie [Stone]. She [Lucetta] is a tough character. The choices she makes, especially her sexual choices... it was hard for me to put myself out there like that.

Milla Jovovich
