rarely 3762 · 14 · 268.71428571429 + 490 The truth is rarely pure and never simple. Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest + 396 Pride is a sin that can readily be seen in others but is rarely admitted in ourselves. Ezra Taft Benson + 336 I've always been proud of the fact that I can hold it together and I rarely break. It's a point of pride for me. Justin Long + 290 The lesson of History is rarely learned by the actors themselves. James A. Garfield + 277 The attempt to combine wisdom and power has only rarely been successful and then only for a short while. Albert Einstein + 285 The attempt to combine wisdom and power has only rarely been successful, and then only for a short while. Albert Einstein + 263 I am rarely bored alone, I am often bored in groups and crowds. Laurie Helgoe + 288 Zest. Gusto. How rarely one hears these words used. How rarely do we see people living, or for that matter, creating by them. Yet if I were asked to name the most important items in a writer’s make-up, the things that shape his material and rush him along the road to where he wants to go, I could only warn him to look to his zest, see to his gusto. Ray Bradbury + 288 Humans are not proud of their ancestors, and rarely invite them round to dinner. Douglas Adams + 250 We rarely think people have good sense unless they agree with us.

Donald Trump + 86 It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things. Leonardo da Vinci + 137 He had only one major publication. It was in Hebrew; had no references; wasn't published in an academic journal; and some doubt he wrote it himself. He may have created the world, but what has he done since? The scientific community cannot replicate his results. He never received permission from the ethics board to use human subjects. When one experiment went awry, he tried to cover it up by drowning the subjects. He rarely came to class; telling the students to, "Read the book." Some say he had his son teach the class. He expelled his first two students. His office hours were irregular and sometimes held on a mountain top. Although there were only ten requirements, most students failed.
