I promised myself that I'd never actually admit to listening to 'New Kids on the Block.'
That's our mission: to clean and green New York City - one block at a time.
Unlike the Marxists, I have no mind block against the U.S.
People talk as if grief were just a feeling -- as if it weren't the continually renewed shock of setting out again and again on familiar roads and being brought up short by the grim frontier post that now blocks them.
C. S. Lewis
The walk liberating, I was released from forms, from the perpendiculars, straight lines, blocks, boxes, binds of thought into the hues, shadings, rises, flowing bends and blends of sight.
A. R. Ammons
Skating taught me to set a goal and to block out other things and just focus on this one thing.
I was somehow able to block it out and pull myself together for the rest of the program. But it just wasn't my night.
The urgency for me is to hurry up and become visible enough to either influence or shame other artists or corporations into understanding that there needs to be an equal starting block. You can't rush to make the changes. The rush that I have is to change the mindset of the people who can actually influence the situation in developed countries and in under - developed countries ... and not all under-developed countries need to develop. Maybe they just need to learn and be re - given the tools to understand how to use the land that they live on.
Byrd, the former Klu [sic] Klux Klan Kleagle, is taking a stand over states' rights, or his rights over State, or some such. Whatever the reason, the sight of an old Klansman blocking a little colored girl from Birmingham from getting into her office contributed to the general retro vibe that hangs around the Democratic Party these days.
If I've got Writer's Block it generally means that I don't have that much to say or something's not quite connecting. I have had Writer's Block a bunch of times and it's generally because I'm not able to write down what I'm feeling basically. Mostly, I just need to be alone really, or be with someone who can bring that out of me.
If these railroad crossings were fixed right with metal devices that come down and block traffic, people couldn't pull up and get killed.
Wearing a bold print gets harder as you get older. It's safer to stick to subtle prints or block colours. I have always found prints quite tricky. My daughter Carly, who is on the design team at Stella McCartney, is obsessed with them.
You try to become the character that you're working with. So for me, I try to block out the cameras and try to trick my mind that this is actually happening.
We [black people] don't respect our elders. Besides artists, we don't respect Frederick Douglass. We don't respect Martin Luther King. You look at every Martin Luther King Boulevard out here, and it's a crack block. That's not because of white people. That's because of black leadership. We just have that problem, and it's something that I am going to spend the rest of my life trying to conquer.

Imagine blocks and blocks of no cocaine, blocks with no gun play.
You can say it's like the official block party for the NBA. We have special performances, mini concerts and it's an all day event. There are tons of contests, players come out and it's just an all around good time for the family.
Dallas Michael John Albert Green
When the bad stuff was really intense in my life, it was really what you would call writer's block. Your facility is just not as good because you feel so bad. I've heard of people right on the verge of suicide coming up with some of their best work. I wish I could think of an example, other than Van Gogh, perhaps!
Creedence Clearwater Revival
You really ought to read more books - you know, those things that look like blocks but come apart on one side.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
