Famous quotes containing the word start:

    Christianity came into existence to lighten the heart, but now it needs to burden the heart to start with so it can lighten it afterwards. Consequently, it will perish.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Just at the stroke when my veins start and spread,
    Set on my soul an everlasting head.
    Then am I ready, like a palmer fit,
    To tread those blest paths which before I writ.
    Sir Walter Raleigh (1552?–1618)

    I tell people all the time, you have to be in love with that pot. You have to put all your love in that pot. If you’re in a hurry, just eat your sandwich and go. Don’t even start cooking, because you can’t do anything well in a hurry. I love food. I love serving people. I love satisfying people.
    Leah Chase (b. 1923)
