Quotes about deadline

Marin Sorescu

The Scribe

I'm being visited more and more seldom
By respiration.
I can't breathe anymore -so I can't write therefore, I live no more.

And here I ask:
The portion of my air I did not breathe
(Since I was gone before the deadline)
Is it worth anything?
At least it could be given to the poor
(If this were possible)
But this is such an absurd parsimony
Of Nothingness.

And further on:
The thoughts I left unwritten
By whom will they be finished? Since grains of sand are not alike
How could a new pen different from mine
Resume the thread exactly from the point I ceased?

And I had just discovered

A deadline is negative inspiration. Still, it's better than no inspiration at all.

Dusty Old Fairgrounds

by Bob Dylan
Well, it's all up from Florida at the start of the spring,
The trucks and the trailers will be winding
Like a bullet we'll shoot for the carnival route.
We're following them dusty old fairgrounds a-calling.
From the Michigan mud past the Wisconsin sun
'Cross that Minnesota border, keep 'em scrambling
Through the clear county lakes and the lumberjack lands,
We're following them dusty old fairgrounds a-calling.
Hit Fargo on the jump and down to Aberdeen
'Cross them old Black Hills, keep 'em rolling
Through the cow country towns and the sands of old Montana.
We're following them fairgrounds a-calling.
As the white line on the highway sails under your wheels,
I've gazed from the trailer window laughing.
Oh, our clothes they was torn but the colors they was bright.
Following them dusty old fairgrounds a-calling.
It's a-many a friend that follows the bend,
The jugglers, the hustlers, the gamblers.
Well, I've spent my time with the fortune-telling kind

One On One

Words and music by rick nielsen
Reputation is a fragile thing
Fame and money dont mean much to me
Oh, dont go change to prove the point
It doesnt matter, oh no
Weve had our problems and weve had our fun
Did a lot of livin on the run
Oh dont go cover up the truth
Cause were together, oh yeah
One on one, one on one
Its you and me against the world
Its one on one
Head is spinning and your mouth is dry
Happiness you couldnt find or buy
Oh, ever want something so bad you could taste it?
Made the deadline and you passed the test
Sabotage seems safer than success
Put it off until tomorrow
Ive hear it all before
But its one on one, one on one

I Raq And I Roll

You can wave your signs in protest against America takin' stands.
The stands America's takin' are the reason that you can.
If everyone would go for peace, there'd be no need for war,
But we can't ignore the devil; he'll keep comin' back for more.
Some see this in black and white; others only grey.
We're not beggin' for a fight, no matter what they say.
We have a resolution that should put 'em all to shame.
It's a...a different kind of deadline when I'm called in the game.
I rock, I rack 'em up an' I roll.
I'm back, an' I'm a high-tech GI Joe.
I pray for peace, prepare for war,
And I never will forgive.
There's no price too high for freedom,
So be careful where you tread.
Now this terror isn't man to man; they can be no more than cowards.
They won't show us their weapons: we might have to show them ours.
Now it might be a smart-bomb; they find stupid people too.
If you stand with the likes of Saddam, one just might find you.
I rock, I rack 'em up an' I roll.
I'm back, an' I'm a high-tech GI Joe.

Across The Border

Ive been workin so hard, baby,
Tryin to get to you.
Im gonna be there soon because
In the heat of the day many miles away
When the sun is beating down upon the main street
Ill be waiting here at the station,
I gotta move down the line.
Theyll be dancin and singin and doin their thing
And theyll be rockin and rollin until the day is done.
You know I got to make the deadline.
I gotta get that southbound train tonight, ooh.
If I dont get to the border then Ill write.
The mardi gras will be blowing strong
And the people dancing all across the city.
Im leaving here tonight,
I gotta move down the line.
Im gonna catch a ride on the nine-o-five,
Im gonna ride the rail until we reach the morning,
Maybe three or four hundred miles.
I gotta get that southbound train tonight, ooh.

Easy Street

Ive had enough of forever being told what to say and do
Ive had enough
Ive had enough being always pushed around by the likes of you
Im making some plans of my own now
And you know what you can do
Im so tired
Tired of the man giving me such a hard, hard time
Im so tired
You make a man work so hard every day,
Dont you know its a crime
Always got to hit the deadline
When will I ever get some peace of mind
Ill find a girl thats rich and pretty
Ill get myself the key to the big city
Find a way to make some money
Move into the land of milk and honey
Everythings sweet and lifes a treat
Feel the heat on easy street
Im movin on
Movin on to a place that I see all the time in my dreams

The Skin Game

You're welcome to fame
You're welcome to try
I've been on tv, sold my face to you
You're welcome to love
You're welcome to me
I burned my dream, sold my heart, nobody knew
Listen children
I've seen my future
Call it the deadline for now
I've heard secrets
I've heard excuses
I've heard a voice in the dark
You're waiting for me
You've made a mistake
I'll give you nothing but lies, or nothing at all
I'm playing a game
I'm playing with you
I call it shameful, 'the skin game,' don't you?
You're playing it cold
(ripping it up)

Anyway

He panics, feels around for a stone and hurls it at the brightest point. the sound of breaking glass echoes around the cave. as his vision is restored he catches sight of two golden gloves about
Foot in diameter hovering away down the tunnel. when they disappear a resounding crack sears across the roof, and it collapses all around him. our hero is trapped once again.
This is it he thinks, failing to move any of the fallen rocks.
All the pumpings nearly over for my sweet heart,
This is the one for me,
Time to meet the chef,
O boy! running man is out of death.
Feel cold and old, its getting hard to catch my breath.
s back to ash, now, youve had your flash boy
The rocks, in time, compress
Your blood to oil,
Your flesh to coal,
Enrich the soil,
Not everybodys goal.
Anyway, they say she comes on a pale horse,
But Im sure I hear a train.
O boy! I dont even feel no pain -
I guess I must be driving myself insane.
Damn it all! does earth plug a hole in heaven,
Or heaven plug a hole in earth - how wonderful to be so profound,

Bedsitterland

Writers: leo sayer & frank farrell
Im thinking of taking
The easy way out
Open the window
Ill fall to the ground
I could do it -- wouldnt be much too it
I gotta little place here in the city
Its kind of small and dirty, its a bedsitter
And theres a lot of us living here
Wall to wall in one big house
And when the night comes round
I can see a lot of lonely lights
There are people in there breathing
But it dont seem right
In the streets way down below me
Im listening for just a sound
But nobody comes around
In bedsitterland
And theres a man below me on the balcony
Crying to be heard
