I’ve always thought there are two ways of getting what you wanted in life.Forcing people to give it to you,or making them want to give it to you.
Candace Bushnell
When it comes to the environment and global warming from emissions, it has to be dealt with in one of two ways – preemptive regulations, which I don’t agree with, or with private property principles. Nobody has the right to pollute their neighbors’ air or water or land.
Ron Paul
Revolutions are effected in two ways, by force and by fraud.
…culture is useless unless it is constantly challenged by counter culture. People create culture; culture creates people. It is a two-way street. When people hide behind a culture, you know that’s a dead culture.
Muhammad Yunus
There are two ways to improve your service, and yourself: maximize your strengths and minimize your weaknesses.
Ron Kaufman
there are only two ways to make a lot [of money] while you’re young: One is to entertain the public; and the other is to cheat it.
Kathleen Winsor
There are two way of establishing a reputation, one to be praised by honest people and the other to be accused by rogues. It is best, however, to secure the first one, because it will always be accompanied by the latter.
Charles Caleb Colton
Of course a poem is a two-way street. No poem is any good if it doesn’t suggest to the reader things from his own mind and recollection that he will read into it, and will add to what the poet has suggested. But I do think poetry readings are very important.
James Laughlin
Prayer is spiritual communication between man and God, a two-way relationship in which man should not only talk to God but also listen to Him. Prayer to God is like a child’s conversation with his father. It is natural for a child to ask his father for the things he needs.
Billy Graham
There are only two ways of telling the complete truth – anonymously and posthumously.
Thomas Sowell
There are two ways of waking up in the morning. One is to say, ‘Good morning, God,’ and the other is to say, ‘Good God, morning’!

Jean de la Bruyere
There are two ways to be rich: to have more or need less. It’s estimated that we squander about 30 percent of our energy leaving the lights on, the refrigerator door open, and so on. Then there is the enormous amount of food that we expend huge amounts of energy to raise and then throw away.
Bill Nye
Trust is a two way street. If your government does not trust you, how can you trust your government?
Bruce Montague
In 1953 there were two ways for an Irish Catholic boy to impress his parents: become a priest or attend Notre Dame.
Phil Donahue
You can define a net two ways, depending on your point of view. Normally you would say it is a meshed instrument designed to catch fish. But you could, with no great injury to logic, reverse the image and define the net as a jocular lexicographer once did: he called it a collection of holes tied together with string.
Julian Barnes
We do not accept the Western way of thinking that there are two ways of life. At the same time, the police (here) are not chasing gays. In Africa, sexuality is something very private, even for heterosexuals. Heterosexuals are not parading! But gays want to behave like exhibitionists.
Yoweri Museveni
Leadership is a two-way street, loyalty up and loyalty down.
Respect for one’s superiors; care for one’s crew.
Grace Hopper
I have always thought that these two ways of talking, one is the fantastic, the fable, the fairy tale, and the other being history, the scholarly study of what happened, I think they’re both amazing ways to understand human nature.
Salman Rushdie
There are two ways to be rich – one in the abundance of your possessions and the other in the fewness of your wants.
E. Stanley Jones
The antagonism between life and conscience may be removed in two ways: by a change of life or by a change of conscience.
Leo Tolstoy
Loving life is a two-way street… We don’t receive care and compassion if we don’t extend them to others.
George Shinn
We can look at any experience in two ways: through the eyes of lack, or the eyes of plenty. Fear sees limits, while love sees possibilities. Each attitude will be justified by the belief system you cherish. Change your allegiance from fear to love, and love will sustain you wherever you walk.
Alan Cohen
Music is a communication. It’s a two-way street. You need people to play to in order to make that connection complete. That’s the way we look at it.
John Petrucci
All that we know about the interaction between leaders and constituents or followers tells us that communication and influence flow in both directions; and in that two-way communication, nonrational, nonverbal, and unconscious elements play their part.
John W. Gardner
Prayer at its highest is a two-way conversation – and for me the most important part is listening to God’s replies.
Frank Laubach
There are two ways to reach me: by way of kisses or by way of the imagination. But there is a hierarchy: the kisses alone don’t work.
Anais Nin
My theory is, I don’t know how long it’s going to be five or ten years, there will be only two ways to see a movie and that will either be on your computer through your TV screen or in the cinema, end of story. There will be no DVD, that’s it, simple.
Eric Fellner
Constructive trade, the two-way exchange of goods and services, is the most efficient and logical way for each nation . . . to build a stable prosperity, a prosperity based not on aid, but on mutually beneficial economic contacts.
Ronald Reagan
Relationships are a two way street. Not a highway and a bike path.

Alex Green
One can experience loneliness in two ways: by feeling lonely in the world or by feeling the loneliness of the world.
Emile M. Cioran
Art saved my life in two ways. It made me feel special, because I could do things my friends couldn’t, but it also gave me a way to demonstrate to my teacher that, despite the fact that I couldn’t write a paper or do math, I was paying attention.
Chuck Close
If a player is not performing, there are two ways of looking at it. You wait for performance to come, or maybe the moment has arrived where you have to change. I could go either way.
Jose Mourinho
