Famous quotes containing the words hold back and/or hold:

    When words reach the tip of your tongue, hold back half of them.
    Chinese proverb.

    When we have to change our mind about someone, we hold the inconvenience he has caused us very much against him.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    I am fooling only myself when I say my mother exists now only in the photograph on my bulletin board or in the outline of my hand or in the armful of memories I still hold tight. She lives on in everything I do. Her presence influenced who I was, and her absence influences who I am. Our lives are shaped as much by those who leave us as they are by those who stay. Loss is our legacy. Insight is our gift. Memory is our guide.
    Hope Edelman (20th century)
