A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked.
The sky broke like an egg into full sunset and the water caught fire.
Pamela Hansford Johnson
The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it.
Arnold H. Glasow
It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.
C. S. Lewis
The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.
I'm youth, I'm joy, I'm a little bird that has broken out of the egg.
James M. Barrie
The present was an egg laid by the past that had the future inside its shell.
Zora Neale Hurston
If you help a chicken out of an egg, most of the time that bird will die. If you help a moth out of a cocoon, it'll die because they don't go through that struggle and maturation. I can give you a fish for the day and you'll eat a day, but if I teach you to fish, you'll eat for a lifetime. Maybe even start a business.
Remorse, the fatal egg that pleasure laid.
I usually eat six times a day, small meals. For breakfast, an egg and a corn tortilla, salsa and cilantro, and some ham. For snacks, I'll have an apple, some string cheese, a yogurt. For lunch I'll have salad with protein in it and for dinner usually steamed vegetables and chicken or fish.
Of those beings who live in ignorance, shut up and confined, as it were, in an egg, I have first broken the eggshell of ignorance and alone in the universe obtained the most exalted, universal Buddhahood.
Noise proves nothing. Often a hen who has merely laid an egg cackles as if she laid an asteroid.
We hunger to understand, so we invent myths about how we imagine the world is constructed - and they're, of course, based upon what we know, which is ourselves and other animals. So we make up stories about how the world was hatched from a cosmic egg or created after the mating of cosmic deities or by some fiat of a powerful being.
Eggs are one of my all-time favorite foods, and making the over-easy egg is a test of skill.
Prince was outside his dressing room, shaking one of those little Easter egg maracas. His hair was straightened to a soft wave; his eyelashes were unfairly lovely. He smelled like the most expensive shelf in the Sephora perfume aisle. This man wearing eyeliner, heels and ladies' perfume somehow managed to be more masculine than the burly bodyguard.
Boredom is the dream bird that hatches the egg of experience. A rustling in the leaves drives him away.
The process and organization leading up to cooking the egg can tell you a lot about the cook.
My first meal when I wake up is five boiled eggs, egg whites, and a slice of whole wheat bread.
For so long, I've been a little misunderstood as a person. You know, I do have this strut about me. I don't know if it's the Jersey girl in me. I like to think of myself as an egg, you know? Hard on the outside but soft on the inside.
Being born in a duck yard does not matter, if only you are hatched from a swan's egg.
Hans Christian Andersen
It is a well-documented fact that guys will not ask for directions. This is a biological thing. This is why it takes several million sperm cells... to locate a female egg, despite the fact that the egg is, relative to them, the size of Wisconsin.
I can cook really complicated recipes, but it takes a real talent to do the perfect egg.
Football is a fertility festival. Eleven sperm trying to get into the egg. I feel sorry for the goalkeeper.
A hen is only an egg's way of making another egg.
My fantasy breakfast is just a really good egg scramble. Maybe I'll add a little feta, so, uh, obviously not totally dairy-free. Definitely some vegetables, maybe some really nice tortillas; something to make it like a Mexican-style breakfast. I just really love breakfast.
One-third of all female infertility is the result of blocked fallopian tubes. If fertilization could be done in the lab and then the fertilized egg implanted in the womb, it would get around that problem. Millions of women who cannot have children would suddenly be able to.
James D. Watson
