Favorite Inherently Quotes

Author: Alain De Botton

Author: Alan Keyes
3. "As I see it, only God can be all-powerful without danger, because his wisdom and justice are always equal to his power.

Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
4. "For me, heaven would be a lack of alienation. The whole time I was growing up, I felt comfort was inherently evil. I think that, for me, heaven isn't about couches and milk shakes and never having a troubling thought again."
Author: Alice Sebold
5. "With a new awareness, both painful and humorous, I begin to understand why the saints were rarely married women. I am convinced it has nothing inherently to do, as I once supposed, with chastity or children. It has to do primarily with distractions. The bearing, rearing, feeding and educating of children; the running of a house with its thousand details; human relationships with their myriad pulls--woman's normal occupations in general run counter to creative life, or contemplative life, or saintly life. The problem is not merely one of Woman and Career, Woman and the Home, Woman and Independence. It is more basically: how to remain whole in the midst of the distractions of life; how to remain balanced, no matter what centrifugal forces tend to pull one off center; how to remain strong, no matter what shocks come in at the periphery and tend to crack the hub of the wheel."
Author: Anne Morrow Lindbergh
6. "I think art is inherently nonviolent and it actually occupies your mind with creation rather than destruction."
Author: Anthony Kiedis

Author: Atom Egoyan
8. "In a swamp, as in meditation, you begin to glimpse how elusive, how inherently insubstantial, how fleeting our thoughts are, our identities. There is magic in this moist world, in how the mind lets go, slips into sleepy water, circles and nuzzles the banks of palmetto and wild iris, how it seeps across dreams, smears them into the upright world, rots the wood of treasure chests, welcomes the body home."
Author: Barbara Hurd
9. "Inherently participatory in nature, Community Video focusing on using video to enable communities to communicate amongst themselves as well as with others."
Author: Ben Edwards
10. "At the time of 'Words, Words, Words,' I'm a 19-year-old getting up feeling like he's entitled to do comedy and tell you what he thinks of the world, so that's inherently a little bit ridiculous."
Author: Bo Burnham
11. "Despite my emphasis on technology, I do not view laws as inherently evil. My goals are political ones, even if my techniques are not. The only way to fundamentally succeed is by changing existing laws. If I rejected all help from the political arena I would inevitably fail."
Author: Bram Cohen
12. "Because the purpose of feminism isn't to make a particular type of woman. The idea that there are inherently wrong and inherently right "types" of women is what's screwed feminism for so long?—?this belief that "we" wouldn't accept slaggy birds, dim birds, birds that bitch, birds that hire cleaners, birds that stay at home with their kids, birds that have pink Mini Metros with POWERED BY FAIRY DUST! bumper stickers, birds in burkas or birds that like to pretend, in their heads, that they're married to Zach Braff from Scrubs and that you sometimes have sex in an ambulance while the rest of the cast watch and, latterly, clap. You know what? Feminism will have all of you.What is feminism? Simply the belief that women should be as free as men, however nuts, dim, deluded, badly dressed, fat, receding, lazy and smug they might be.Are you a feminist? Hahaha. Of course you are."
Author: Caitlin Moran
13. "Gratitude is a state of mind that inherently recognizes interdependence with the external world, whether it be other humans, nature, the sacred, or a combination of these."
Author: Carolyn Baker
14. "...she is too beautiful, I think, to not be inherently evil."
Author: Christopher Moore
15. "White supremacist ideology is based first and foremost on the degradation of black bodies in order to control them. One of the best ways to instill fear in people is to terrorize them. Yet this fear is best sustained by convincing them that their bodies are ugly, their intellect is inherently underdeveloped, their culture is less civilized, and their future warrants less concern than that of other peoples."
Author: Cornel West
16. "I am absolutely and inherently self-destructive in that I am always making sure I'm doing what I want to do."
Author: Dan Harmon
17. "Anthemic rock music is inherently fascist - anything intended to move huge masses of people is politically offensive to me."
Author: Donald Fagen
18. "I'd argue with Warren, but it's a funny thing with people. Even if you argue, when that person isn't around to say their piece, you say it for them. You may not even link with their point, but out of loyalty you make that man's point for him 'cause he ain't there. Years later, in college, surrounded by cynical liberals like myself, I'd say things that I swear came out of Warren's mouth and it helped me understand that old saying that no man is an island. People ask me what my greatest strengths are and I say perspective. The best way to get that is to meet people that are polar opposites; you learn the most from them. There are pieces of you that are inherently yours, but everything else is a collection of the things you've seen and the people you've met. In the end, we're like the Triumph beat: who's next on this RZA track? Step up and drop a verse on my story. That's the illest."
Author: Eddie Huang

23. "The more I pursue God, the more I realize that he is inherently different from us. He does not protect his possessions and hoard his toys. He does not look forways to make us jealous of him, though he, the God Most High, is jealous for us."
Author: John D. Richardson
24. "Why is discipline important? Discipline teaches us to operate by principle rather than desire. Saying no to our impulses (even the ones that are not inherently sinful) puts us in control of our appetites rather than vice versa. It deposes our lust and permits truth, virtue, and integrity to rule our minds instead."
Author: John F. MacArthur Jr.
25. "The "whole good" cannot be had, it would seem, without mustering all the strength of our inner life. Even in the sphere of external possessions there are goods which inherently demand, if they are to be truly ours, far more of us than mere acquisition. "'My garden,' the rich man said; his gardener smiled."
Author: Josef Pieper
26. "I'm really schizophrenic about that, because on the one hand I would say, yes there is, there's something inherently, even violent about it, it's wild and raw and all this."
Author: Lester Bangs
27. "Joel Bakan, author of The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power argues that if corporations have 'person hood' under the law, then it makes sense to question what kind of people they are. He posits that corporations behave with all the classical signs of sociopathy: they are inherently amoral, they elevate their own interests above all others', and they disregard moral and sometimes legal limits on their behavior in pursuit of their own advancement. Organizations of this type would thrive under the leadership of people who have the same traits: sociopaths."
Author: M.E. Thomas
28. "Aggression is inherently destructive of relationships. People and ideologies are pitted against each other, believing that in order to survive, they must destroy the opposition."
Author: Margaret J. Wheatley

Author: Margaret Wertheim

Author: Marshall Brickman
31. "Birds have nests that seem to be inherent. I think there must be some kind of extended phenotype for humans. People probably have, inherently inside them the perfect psychological space that can be grown or developed at multiple levels. Maybe it's a womb or some kind of variant on a womb, something that's safe and performs or adapts to our needs."
Author: Mitchell Joachim
32. "Abortion is inherently different from other medical procedures because no other procedure involves the purposeful termination of a potential life."
Author: Potter Stewart
33. "We can grow crops less expensively because molecular manufacturing technology is inherently low cost."
Author: Ralph Merkle
34. "Dr. Clair looked at Layton. The mancala pieces were still in her hand.If Angela Ashforth ever says anything like that to you again, you tell her that just because she's insecure about being a little girl in a society that puts an inordinate amount of pressure on little girls to live up to certain physical, emotional and ideological standards -- many of which are improper, unhealthy and self-perpetuating -- doesn't mean she has to take her misplaced self-loathing out on a nice boy like you. You may be inherently a part of the problem but that doesn't mean you aren't a nice boy with nice manners and it certainly doesn't mean you have AIDS."I'm not sure I can remember all that," Layton said.Well then, tell Angela that her mother is a white trash drunk from Butte."
Author: Reif Larsen
35. "As time went by, I realized that the particular place I'd chose was less important than the fact that I'd chosen a place and focused my life around it. Although the island has taken on great significance for me, it's no more inherently beautiful or meaningful than any other place on earth. What makes a place special is the way it buries itself inside the heart, not whether it's flat or rugged, rich or austere. wet or arid, gentle or harsh, warm or cold, wild or tame. Every place, like every person, is elevated by the love and respect shown toward it, and by the way in which its bounty is received."
Author: Richard Nelson
36. "Because I am a part of the Big Picture, I do matter and substantially so. Because I am only a part, however, I am rightly situated off to stage right—and happily so. What freedom there is in such truth! We are inherently important and included, yet not burdened with manufacturing or sustaining that private importance. Our dignity is given by God, and we are freed from ourselves!"
Author: Richard Rohr
37. "A sword is only as good, or as evil, as its user. In good hands it defends the helpless and brings justice. In evil hands it leaves a swath of despair and suffering. The same goes for...laws--or anything, for that matter. Either good men use them for good, or evil men use them for evil, but they are not inherently good or evil in themselves."--Wenchel"
Author: Robert J.A. Gilbert
38. "We're not inherently anything but human."
Author: Robin Morgan

Author: Robyn Davidson
40. "Inherently, department stores have significant advantages compared to all other retailers."
Author: Ron Johnson
41. "For Americans, Acts 16:9 is the high-fructose corn syrup of Bible verses--an all-purpose ingredient we'll stir into everything from the ink on the Marshall Plan to canisters of Agent Orange. Our greatest goodness and our worst impulses come out of this missionary zeal, contributing to our overbearing (yet not entirely unwarranted) sense of our country as an inherently helpful force in the world. And, as with the apostle Paul, the notion that strangers want our help is sometimes a delusion."
Author: Sarah Vowell
42. "Even for the most excitable preacher, there was nothing inherently sinful about a waffle."
Author: Simon Schama
43. "Manifesting your desires requires an understanding of the universe's abundance and inherently giving nature. If you ask from a position of fear or desperation, you are sending out your fear and desperation, and the universe, giving, reflecting, and non-judgmental as it is, will send those right back at you."
Author: Stephen Richards
44. "As individuals, people are inherently good. I have a somewhat more pessimistic view of people in groups.

We don't seem to be excited about making our country a better place for our kids."
Author: Steve Jobs
45. "Shyness is inherently uncomfortable; introversion is not. The traits do overlap, though psychologists debate to what degree."
Author: Susan Cain

Author: T. Greenwood
47. "The Kantian imperative to have the courage to think for oneself has involved a contemptuous disregard for the resources of tradition and an infantile view of authority as inherently oppressive."
Author: Terry Eagleton

It has to do with noticing our fellow human beings and saying, "I recognize that you're on this planet, and I don't want a door hitting you in the face."
Author: Tim Gunn
49. "Heisenbergs uncertainty principle states that the mere act of observing something inherently disturbs it's state. So Annika perhaps instead of trying to quantify our love, we should accept the warm embrace of it's perfection."
Author: Tyler Hough
50. "The law of perceptual problem solving, or peekaboo, should now make more sense. It may have evolved to ensure that the search for visual solutions is inherently pleasurable rather than frustrating, so that you don't give up too easily."
Author: V.S. Ramachandran

Today's Quote

Llega el día en que te miras al espejo y no eres el que te esperabas. Sí, porque el espejo es la forma más cruel de la verdad. No te reflejas como eres realmente. Querrías que tu imagen se correspondiese con quién eres por dentro y que los otros al verte pudieran saber en el acto si eres sincero, generoso, simpático... pero resulta que nunca se puede prescindir de las palabras ni de los hechos. Tienes que demostrar quién eres. Lo bonito sería que uno pudiera mostrarse sin más. Todo sería más sencillo."
