1. "That is human nature, that people come after you, willingly enough, provided only that you no longer love or want them."
Author: A.S. Byatt
2. "Sin duda, nada es más natural hoy día que ver a las gentes trabajar de la mañana a la noche y en seguida elegir, entre el café, el juego y la charla, el modo de perder el tiempo que les queda por vivir."
Author: Albert Camus
3. "We will gradually become indifferent to what goes on in the minds of other people when we acquire a knowledge of the superficial nature of their thoughts, the narrowness of their views and of the number of their errors. Whoever attaches a lot of value to the opinions of others pays them too much honor."
Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
4. "El impulso natural de la persona vigorosa y decente es tratar de hacer el bien, pero si se ve privada de todo poder político y de toda oportunidad de influir en los acontecimientos, se verá desviada de su curso natural, y decidirá que lo importante es ser bueno. Eso es lo que les ocurrió a los primeros cristianos; ha conducido a un concepto de santidad personal como algo completamente independiente de la acción benéfica, ya que la santidad tenía que ser algo que podía ser logrado por personas impotentes en la acción. Por lo tanto, la virtud social llegó a estar excluida de la ética cristiana. Hasta hoy los cristianos convencionales piensan que un adúltero es peor que un político que acepta sobornos, aunque este último probablemente hace un mal mil veces mayor."
Author: Bertrand Russell
5. "To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him."
Author: Buddha
6. "Cuando hablamos de la "ira" del cielo, la "agitación" del mar, la "resistencia" de los diamantes a ser tallados, la "atracción" que ejerce la Tierra sobre un asteroide cercano o la "excitación" de un átomo, de nuevo pensamos en una especie de visión animista del mundo. Estamos atribuyendo existencia real a objetos inertes. Algún nivel primitivo de nuestro pensamiento dota a la Naturaleza inanimada de vida, pasiones y premeditación."
Author: Carl Sagan
7. "If you are happened to be enjoying the basic necessities of life provided by God, you should be content with your life, and consequently, perpetual happiness would be the natural reward you receive against your self contentment."
Author: Chandrababu V.S.
8. "Nature seemed to me benign and good; I thought she loved me, outcast as I was; and I, who from man could anticipate only mistrust, rejection, insult, clung to her with filial fondness. To-night at least, I would be her guest-as I was her child; my mother would lodge me without money and without price."
Author: Charlotte Brontë
9. "The more we nurture the planet, the better and more natural a life we'll have."
Author: Chris D'Lacey
10. "In the short summer night she learned so much. She would have thought a woman would have died of shame... She felt, now, she had come to the real bedrock of her nature, and was essentially shameless. She was her sensual self, naked an unashamed. She felt a triumph, almost a vainglory. So! That was how it was! That was life! That was how onself really was! There was nothing left to disguise or be ashamed of. She shared her ultimate nakedness with a man, another being."
Author: D.H. Lawrence
11. "In a young, healthy woman, the estrogen ratio generally averages as follows: 60–80 percent estriol, 10–20 percent estradiol, and 10–20 percent estrone. While these levels vary from one individual to another, the goal of bioidentical hormone restoration therapy (BHRT), discussed later, is to re-create a more natural balance in the levels of estrogen and in combination with all the other sex hormones. Estrogens convert into several metabolites. Estrone, for example, may convert into three different forms: • 2-hydroxyestrone, protective against cancer • 4-hydroxyestrone, promotes cancer • 16-alpha-hydroxyestrone, promotes cancer"
Author: Daniel G. Amen
12. "A real democracy would be a meritocracy where those born in the lower ranks could rise as far as their natural talents and discipline might take them."
Author: Doris Kearns Goodwin
13. "Enquanto a consciência patriarcal aniquila o tempo e ultrapassa os lentos processos de transformação e evolução da natureza através do uso deliberado de experimentação e calculo, a consciência matriarcal permanece pesa ao encantamento da lua mutável. Como a lua, sua iluminação e sua liminosidade estão ligadas ao fluxo do tempo e a periodicidade. Deve esperar que o tempo amadureça enquanto a compreensão, como uma semente plantada, também amadureça com ele."
Author: Erich Neumann
14. "It had been startling and disappointing to me to find out that story books had been written by people, that books were not natural wonders, coming of themselves like grass."
Author: Eudora Welty
15. "Gaston Milhaud, like many of his contemporaries, sought to overthrow empirical positivism by insisting on the fundamental reality of the mind, but mind conceived in the Kantian sense. The knowledge of nature is symbolic, and there is no necessary connection between the phenomena and our fictions."
Author: Fulton J. Sheen
16. "Nothing but the natural ignorance of the public, countenanced by the inoculated erroneousness of the ordinary general medical practitioners, makes such a barbarism as vaccination possible.......Recent developments have shown that an inoculation made in the usual general practitioner's light-hearted way, without previous highly skilled examination of the state of the patient's blood, is just as likely to be a simple manslaughter as a cure or preventive. But vaccination is nothing short of attempted murder. A skilled bacteriologist would just as soon think of cutting his child's arm and rubbing the contents of the dustpan into the wound, as vaccinating it in the same."
Author: George Bernard Shaw
17. "How she listened, the first time, to the sonorous lamentations of romantic melancholia echoing out across heaven and earth! If her childhood had been spent in the dark back-room of a shop in some town, she would now perhaps have been kindled by the lyric surgings of nature which only normally reach us as through the interpretation of a writer."
Author: Gustave Flaubert
18. "Even extraordinary circumstances could seem perfectly natural, simply because they were as they were; and in that case the awareness of their extraordinariness only dawned when others found them extraordinary."
Author: Harry Mulisch
19. "His love is the soil in which all the fruits of the Spirit grow. When our roots abide there, then joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, and self-control grow naturally in our hearts."
Author: J.D. Greear
20. "Fantasy is a natural human activity. It certainly does not destroy or even insult Reason; and it does not either blunt the appetite for, nor obscure the perception of scientific verity. On the contrary. The keener and the clearer is the reason, the better fantasy will it make. If men were ever in a state in which which they did not want to know or could not perceive truth (facts or evidence), then Fantasy would languish until they were cured. If they ever get into that state it would not seem at all impossible/ Fantasy will perish and become Morbid Delusion."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
21. "Something, someone, some spirit was pursuing all of us across the desert of life and was bound to catch us before we reached heaven. Naturally, now that I look back on it, this is only death: death will overtake us before heaven. The one thing that we yearn for in our living days, that makes us sigh and groan and undergo sweet nauseas of all kinds, is the remembrance of some lost bliss that was probably experienced in the womb and can only be reproduced (though we hate to admit it) in death."
Author: Jack Kerouac
22. "Love (understood as the desire of good for another) is in fact so unnatural a phenomenon that it can scarcely repeat itself the soul being unable to become virgin again and not having energy enough to cast itself out again into the ocean of another s soul."
Author: James Joyce
23. "If gratitude and esteem are good foundations of affection, Elizabeth's change of sentiment will be neither improbable nor faulty. But if otherwise--if regard springing from such sources is unreasonable or unnatural, in comparison of what is so often described as arising on a first interview with its object, and even before two words have been exchanged, nothing can be said in her defence, except that she had given somewhat of a trial to the latter method in her partiality for Wickham, and that its ill success might, perhaps, authorise her to seek the other less interesting mode of attachment."
Author: Jane Austen
24. "I can discover nothing in any mere animal but an ingenious machine, to which nature has given senses to wind itself up, and guard, to a certain degree, against everything that might destroy or disorder it."
Author: Jean Jacques Rousseau
25. "A strange species we are, We can stand anything God and nature can throw at us save only plenty. If I wanted to destroy a nation, I would give it too much, and I would have it on its knees, miserable, greedy, sick. --John Steinbeck to Adlai Stevenson"
Author: John Steinbeck
26. "They don't have to think. Just be afraid naturally and pulling together. Like specks of mercury rolling into the big piece. Like little specks of mercury rolling into bigger specks and then bigger and then just one piece, and nothing to be scared about or hurt about because you're just a piece of a bigger piece getting bigger rolling across the land into an ocean of mercury..."
Author: Ken Kesey
27. "I believe in a kind of God. I think all scientists, in a way, believe in a certain God, in a certain order of nature."
Author: Leonard Mlodinow
28. "The enemy is over there and we are still seeking revenge from the nature."
Author: M.F. Moonzajer
29. "I am not sure how evil religion by nature is, but I have no doubt of its stupidity and insanity in practice."
Author: M.F. Moonzajer
30. "Barring that natural expression of villainy which we all have, the man looked honest enough."
Author: Mark Twain
31. "...loading your brain with subliminal messages.... How loathsome to turn a sadistic murder into entertainment [in the newspaper] -- and yet how hard not to read about it. What dark comedy to realize that you are scanning for descriptions of torture as you disapprove. Which of course only makes it more entertaining. "But naturally I was hoping they'd report something grisly," you say to your friends, who chuckle lighthearted acknowledgment of hypocrisy."
Author: Mary Gaitskill
32. "Equally, the surrealists consider words as witnesses of life acting in a direct way in human affairs. To use words properly it was necessary to treat them with respect, for they were the intermediaries between oneself and the rest of creation. To abuse them was immediately to set oneself adrift from true being. Words need to be coaxed to reveal a little of their true nature, so as to close the breach that exists between the writer and the universe. The world is not something alien against which man is in conflict. Rather man and cosmos exist in reciprocal motion. We are not cast adrift in an alien or meaningless environment. The universe is intimate with us and, as Breton insisted, it is a cryptogram to be deciphered."
Author: Michael Richardson
33. "I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one's head pointed toward the sun, one's feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death."
Author: Nelson Mandela
34. "Photography started as a means of getting reference material for my paintings of nature subjects."
Author: Nigel Dennis
35. "I joke around a lot about the manic times because they're funny. We manics do outrageous things and it is part of our colorful nature."
Author: Patty Duke
36. "Man is more miserable, more restless and unsatisfied than ever before, simply because half his nature--the spiritual--is starving for true food, and the other half--the material--is fed with bad food."
Author: Paul Brunton
37. "Nature best teaches how to pray, and how to reverence all the gifts the Almighty has given us. She is like a vast outspread handkerchief, embroidered with God's eternal name, on which we may dry alike our tears of sorrow and of joy; she turns weeping into ecstasy, and fills our hearts with speechless, quiet reverence and resignation."
Author: Robert Schumann
38. "I'm not, by nature, a collaborator. My biggest influences were people like painters and poets. These are solitary workers."
Author: Robert Wyatt
39. "Sometimes, after they'd done the shopping, they would stop, each with his or her cart, in front of a bookstore that carried the paperback edition of his book. His wife would point to it and say: you're still there. Invariably, he would nod and then they would continue browsing the mall stores. Did he know her or didn't he? He knew her, of course he did, it was just that sometimes reality, the same little reality that served to anchor reality, seemed to fade around the edges, as if the passage of time had a porous effect on things, and blurred and made more insubstantial what was itself already, by its very nature, insubstantial and satisfactory and real."
Author: Roberto Bolaño
40. "You're funny.' Phoebe passed me the last chocolate cupcake. 'And I always thought your friends were laughing over their own farts.''Ninety percent of Eastwood's male population laughs over their own farts. Present company excluded, naturally."
Author: Robyn Schneider
41. "Am saying that lesbianism, homosexuality, and heterosexuality are valid expressions of man's bisexual nature. I am also stressing the fact that love and sexuality are not necessarily the same thing. Sex is love's expression, but it is only one of love's expressions."
Author: Seth
42. "Live according to Nature, runs the maxim of the West; but according to what nature, the nature of the body or the nature which exceeds the body? This first we ought to determine."
Author: Śrī Aurobindo
43. "This could be your big ticket," he said. "You know what happens to you at art school?"I shook my head."All that good natural technique you have? All that detail? They'll beat it right out of you. They'll be so threatened by it, they'll make you start throwing paint at the canvas like a monkey. By the time you graduate, the only thing you'll be able to do is teach art to high school kids."Okay, I thought. I'm glad he's excited for me."On the plus side, you'll probably get laid a lot."I gave him a nod and a quick thumbs-up. He patted me on the shoulder and then left me alone."
Author: Steve Hamilton
44. "It was the nature of our relationship to be lusty and emotional, earthy and raw. The trust that held us together also opened us up to each other in ways that made us both vulnerable and dangerous. And it would get worse before it got better."
Author: Sylvia Day
45. "What will become of us in twenty years' time?" we asked ourselves one evening. Thirty years have passed now. Raymond was guillotined: "Anarchist gangster" (so the newspapers). I came across Jean again in Brussels, a worker and a trade-union organizer, still a fighter for liberty after ten years in jail. Luce has died of tuberculosis, naturally. For my part, I have undergone a little over ten years of various forms of captivity, agitated in seven countries, and written twenty books. I own nothing. On several occasions a Press with a vast circulation has hurled filth at me because I spoke the truth. Behind us lies a victorious revolution gone astray, several abortive attempts at revolution, and massacres in so great a number as to inspire a certain dizziness. And to think that it is not over yet."
Author: Victor Serge
46. "He looked, well, sturdier than he used to. His shoulders were square and, naturally, broader than before. His neck, a bit thicker. He probably had an Adam's apple now too, like any man did. If he turned, would she see it starkly in profile, protruding awkwardly? And, then, he did turn, just a smidge, as he stifled a yawn, and there was nothing awkward about him."
Author: Victoria Kahler
47. "I was certainly a better actor after my five years in Hollywood. I had learned to be natural - never to exaggerate. I found I could act on the stage in just the same way as I had acted in a studio: using my ordinary voice, eliminating gestures, keeping everything extremely simple."
Author: Walter Huston
48. "The signature of a truly enviable woman is the tenacity and continuity of her women friends."
Author: Wendy Wasserstein
49. "He does it with a better grace, but I do it more natural."
Author: William Shakespeare
50. "All of us want to live, and that is absolutely natural. However, we should learn from childhood on to choose our best way to die. If we don't do that, we end up spending our days like a dog, only in search of harbour, food and expressing a blind loyalty to his owner in return. That isn't enough to make our lives have a meaning."
Author: Yamamoto Tsunetomo
