Top Quotes About Limit
1. "Human rights' are a fine thing, but how can we make ourselves sure that our rights do not expand at the expense of the rights of others. A society with unlimited rights is incapable of standing to adversity. If we do not wish to be ruled by a coercive authority, then each of us must rein himself in...A stable society is achieved not by balancing opposing forces but by conscious self-limitation: by the principle that we are always duty-bound to defer to the sense of moral justice."
Author: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Author: Beppe Severgnini
10. "El mundo que tenemos que buscar es un mundo en el cual el espíritu creador esté vivo, en el cual la vida sea una aventura llena de alegría y de esperanza, basada más en el impulso de construir que en el deseo de guardar lo que poseemos y de apoderarnos de lo que poseen los demás. Tiene que ser un mundo en el cual el cariño pueda obrar literalmente, el amor esté purgado del instinto de la dominación, la crueldad y la envidia hayan sido disipadas por la alegría y el desarrollo ilimitado de todos los instintos constructivos de la vida y la llenen de delicias espirituales. Un mundo así es posible; espera solamente a que los hombres quieran crearlo."
Author: Bertrand Russell

Author: Cecília Meireles
14. "Many governments employ torture but this was the first time that the element of Saturnalia and pornography in the process had been made so clear to me. If you care to imagine what any inadequate or cruel man might do, given unlimited power over a woman, then anything that you can bring yourself to suspect was what became routine in ESMA, the Navy Mechanics School that became the headquarters of the business. I talked to Dr. Emilio Mignone, a distinguished physician whose daughter Monica had disappeared into the precincts of that hellish place. What do you find to say to a doctor and a humanitarian who has been gutted by the image of a starving rat being introduced to his daughter's genitalia? Like hell itself the school was endorsed and blessed by priests, in case any stray consciences needed to be stilled."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
15. "There is a black pit in the bottom of my soul that has no limit to its falling."
Author: Claire North
16. "As the sun rose over Washington, Langdon looked to the heavens, where the last of the nighttime stars were fading out. He thought about science, about faith, about man. He thought about how every culture, in every country, in every time, had always shared one thing. We all had the Creator. We use different names, different faces, and different prayers, but God was the universal constant for man. God was the symbol we all shared...the symbol of all the mysteries of life that we could not understand. The ancients had praised God as a symbol of our limitless human potential, but that ancient symbol had been lost over time. Until now."
Author: Dan Brown
17. "The evolution of consciousness requires a wide range of opportunities and a playing field that affords almost unlimited options for development. If human life represents a learning process, then society is the ideal school that affords an extremely wide range of options for numerous levels of consciousness to develop, progress, define, identify, and grasp endless subtleties as well as learn more gross lessons. The ego is extremely tenacious and therefore often seems to require extreme conditions before it lets go of a positionality. It often takes the collective experience of millions of people over many centuries to learn even what appears upon examination to be a simple and obvious truth, namely, that peace is better than war or love is better than hate."
Author: David R. Hawkins
18. "Democracy, like any non-coercive relationship, rests on a shared understanding of limits."
Author: Elizabeth Drew
19. "I knew then that this is how God loves us all and receives us all, and that there is no such thing in this universe as hell, except maybe in our own terrified minds. Because if even one broken and limited human being could experience even one such episode of absolute forgiveness and acceptance of her own self, then imagine—just imagine!—what God, in all His eternal compassion, can forgive and accept."
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
20. "Life is infinite energy coupled with limitless creative imagination. It is the invisible essence and substance of every visible form. Its nature is goodness, truth, wisdom and beauty, as well as energy and imagination. Our highest satisfaction comes from a sense of conscious union with this invisible Life. All human endeavor is an attempt to get back to first principles, to find such an inward wholeness that all sense of fear, doubt and uncertainty vanishes."
Author: Ernest Holmes
21. "Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing. The rest is mere sheep herding."
Author: Ezra Pound
22. "Not being able to fully understand God is frustrating but it is ridiculous for us to think we have the right to limit God to something we are capable of comprehending. What a stunted, insignificant god that would be! If my mind is the size of a soda can and God is the size of all the oceans, it would be stupid for me to say He is only the small amount of water I can scoop into my little can. God is so much bigger, so far beyond our time-encased, air/food/sleep-dependent lives."
Author: Francis Chan
23. "Today I am more convinced than ever. Conceptual integrity is central to product quality. Having a system architect is the most important single step toward conceptual integrity. These principles are by no means limited to software systems, but to the design of any complex construct, whether a computer, an airplane, a Strategic Defense Initiative, a Global Positioning System. After teaching a software engineering laboratory more than 20 times, I came to insist that student teams as small as four people choose a manager and a separate architect. Defining distinct roles in such small teams may be a little extreme, but I have observed it to work well and to contribute to design success even for small teams."
Author: Frederick P. Brooks Jr.
24. "Art is limitation; the essence of every picture is the frame. If you draw a giraffe, you must draw him with a long neck. If in your bold creative way you hold yourself free to draw a giraffe with a short neck, you will really find that you are not free to draw a giraffe."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
25. "All reaction is limited by, and dependant on, what it is reacting against."
Author: Gloria E. Anzaldúa
26. "You dwell on the past, you can't move forward. Spend too much time planning for the future and you just push yourself backwards, or you stay stagnant in the same place all your life." "Live in the moment," he says as if making a serious point, "Where everything is just right, take your time and limit your bad memories and you'll get wherever it is you're going a lot faster and with less bumps in the way."
Author: J.A. Redmerski
27. "But doctors talk about cells as if they had such unlimited importance all by themselves. As if they didn't really belong to the person that has them." Teddy brushed back his hair from his forehead with one hand. "I grew my own body," he said. "Nobody else did it for me. So if I grew it, I must have known how to grow it. Unconsciously, at least. I may have lost the conscious knowledge of how to grow it sometime in the last few hundred thousand years, but the knowledge is still there, because—obviously—I've used it."
Author: J.D. Salinger
28. "How many of the ragged workingmen who pass him in the street are secret authors of works that will outlast them: roads, walls, pylons? Immortality of a kind, a limited immortality, is not so hard to achieve after all. Why then does he persist in inscribing marks on paper, in the faint hope that people not yet born will take the trouble to decipher them?"
Author: J.M. Coetzee
29. "After a day of watching the two-legs interact from within their midst, she was certain that they could talk as well as any wolf. Unlike wolves, however, they mostly used their mouths, a thing she found limiting. How could you tell someone to keep away from your food when your own mouth was full?"
Author: Jane Lindskold
30. "The soil in which the meditative mind can begin is the soil of everyday life, the strife, the pain, and the fleeting joy. It must begin there, and bring order, and from there move endlessly. But if you are concerned only with making order, then that very order will bring about its own limitation, and the mind will be its prisoner. In all this movement you must somehow begin from the other end, from the other shore, and not always be concerned with this shore or how to cross the river. You must take a plunge into the water, not knowing how to swim. And the beauty of meditation is that you never know where you are, where you are going, what the end is."
Author: Jiddu Krishnamurti
31. "Passion is what makes life interesting, what ignites our soul, drives our curiosity, fuels our love and carries our friendship, stimulates our intellect, and pushes our limit.... A passion for life is contagious and uplifting. Passion cuts both ways.... Those that make you feel on top of the world are equally able to turnit upside down....."
Author: Jon Krakauer
32. "Because videogames are so inherently influenced by movies, to take a movie and literally create a videogame out of it, you're immediately setting limitations and expectations on what that game can be."
Author: Josh Trank
33. "Non sono abbastanza, per te. Ma nessuno lo è. E la maggior parte degli uomini, buoni o cattivi, hanno dei limiti a quello che farebbero, anche per la persona che amano. Io non ne ho. Non ho religione, nè morale, nè fede in nulla. A parte te. Tu sei la mia religione. Farei qualsiasi cosa mi chiedessi. Combatterei, ruberei, ucciderei per te."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
34. "Wherever love comes from, whatever is its genesis, it isn't like a quantity of gold or diamonds, even water in the earth-a fixed quantity, Fos thought. You can't use up love, deplete it at its source. Love exists beyond fixed limits. Beyond what you can see or count."
Author: Marianne Wiggins
35. "When many story-tellers occupy themselves with a social world which offers no great variety of lively action, their stories will probably resemble one another as to many of the major incidents, and if they draw on these limited resources like spend thrifts such resemblances will be inevitable--and therefore not significant."
Author: Mary Lascelles
36. "Os extremos delimitam a fronteira para além da qual a vida termina, e a paixão pelo extremismo, tanto em arte como em política, é um desejo de morte disfarçado."
Author: Milan Kundera
37. "Faith removes limitations!"
Author: Napoleon Hill
38. "They say love is all about raging hormones. For me, it's mind's way of breaking through its self-imposed limitations in order to set the eternally ecstatic soul free."
Author: Saurabh Sharma
39. "It was only vanity and discouragement that sometimes made me feel alone with my endless love, but now that I was taking one of the risks my heart had urged upon me I could also feel I was not alone. If endless love was a dream, then it was a dream we all shared, even more than we all shared the dream of never dying or of traveling through time, and if anything set me apart it was not my impulses but my stubbornness, my willingness to take the dream past what had been agreed upon as the reasonable limits, to declare that this dream was not a feverish trick of the mind but was an actuality at least as real as that other, thinner, more unhappy illusion we call normal life. After all, the intimations of endless love were the same now as they were thousands of years before, while normal life had changed a thousand times and in a thousand different ways. Which then, was more real?"
Author: Scott Spencer
40. "Long-term success at work often depends on not trying to meet every demand placed on us. The best way to make room for both life and career is to make choices deliberately—to set limits and stick to them."
Author: Sheryl Sandberg
41. "If he or she really goes about it in earnest, anyone can cultivate ability in ten years, I believe. Even in one year, shortcomings can be changed into good points if only we set our aims high enough. Continuing for ten years, we can become outstanding indeed...There is no limit to our shortcomings. Until we die, we should spare no time or effort in changing our weaknesses to merits. To do so can be pleasant and interesting. We can become like the horse that starts last and yet outruns the field, reaching the wire first; it is the same fun."
Author: Shinichi Suzuki
42. "Pre-teens, teens and college students have unlimited access to the Internet - 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Because of the repeated exposure they have to illegal Internet gambling sites, they fall victim by the thousands."
Author: Spencer Bachus

Author: Stephen Richards
44. "Injustice, being the opposite of justice, is the putting a thing in a place not its own; it is to misplace a thing; it is to misuse or to wrong; it is to exceed or fall short of the mean or limit; it is to suffer loss; it is deviation from the right course; it is disbelief of what is true, or lying about what is true knowing it to be true. -Islam and Secularism page 78"
Author: Syed Muhammad Naquib Al Attas
45. "The human mind is so limited it can only build an arbitrary heaven — and usually the physical comforts they endow it with are naively the kind that can be perceived as we humans perceive — nothing more. No: perhaps I will awake to find myself burning in hell. I think not. I think I will be snuffed out. Black is sleep; black is a fainting spell; and black is death, with no light, no waking."
Author: Sylvia Plath
46. "I smirk. There is no weird pillow talk and no pretending we're soft delicate people. No apologies, limits yes, but no shame."
Author: Tara Brown
47. "Poteva essere se stessa, starsene per conto suo. Ed era proprio questa la cosa di cui in quel periodo sentiva spesso il bisogno: pensare, o meglio, neppure pensare. Starsene in silenzio; starsene da sola. Tutto l'essere e il fare, espansivi, luccicanti, vocali, svanivano; e ci si ripiegava, con un senso di solennità, a essere se stessi, un nucleo cuneiforme di oscurità, qualcosa di invisibile agli altri. Sebbene continuasse a lavorare a maglia e a star seduta dritta, era così che si sentiva; e questo suo io, essendosi liberato da ogni legame, era libero di compiere le più strane avventure. Quando la vita si inabissava per un attimo, il campo delle esperienze sembrava illimitato. Ed era comune a tutti questo senso di risorse illimitate, immaginava; uno dopo l'altro, lei, Lily, Augustus Carmichael, dovevano sentire che le apparenze, le cose per le quali gli altri ci riconoscono, sono semplicemente puerili."
Author: Virginia Woolf
48. "When life sank down for a moment, the range of experience seemed limitless."
Author: Virginia Woolf
49. "The adjustment of reality to the masses and of the masses to reality is a process of unlimited scope, as much for thinking as for perception."
Author: Walter Benjamin
50. "Germany has always stood for an E.U. of the 27 countries. But in light of Britain's continued resistance to further integration steps, as we saw with the fiscal pact, there are limits to my optimism in this regard. It's quite possible that we will have to create the new institutions for the euro zone first."
Author: Wolfgang Schauble
