Author: Emil Cioran
2. "People striving for approval from others become phony."
Author: Ichiro Suzuki
3. "You have the legs and other also have it; they have the brain and you have it! Stop thinking you can't transact the business that others can. If you do, you are raising your inflation rate!"
Author: Israelmore Ayivor
4. "I'll never understand why some people can't just let others live their lives, you know," Danial said. "You don't have to understand. You don't have to agree. Just leave people alone. When I look at the moon and planets and stars, all that narrow-mindedness and hate seem so petty. The universe is such a big place. One hundred thousand light years just from one end of the Milky Way to the other. One hundred. Thousand. Light years. In the time it's taken for light to travel from one end of our galaxy to the other, thousands of generations have passed. It really makes you realize how small we are, doesn't it? How short our time on earth is."
Author: J.H. Trumble
5. "The idea of painless, nonthreatening coercion is an illusion. Fear is the inseparable companion of coercion, and its inescapable consequence. If you think it your duty to make children do what you want, whether they will or not, then it follows inexorably that you must make them afraid of what will happen to them if they don't do what you want. You can do this in the old-fashioned way, openly and avowedly, with the threat of harsh words, infringement of liberty, or physical punishment. Or you can do it in the modern way, subtly, smoothly, quietly, by withholding the acceptance and approval which you and others have trained the children to depend on; or by making them feel that some retribution awaits them in the future, too vague to imagine but too implacable to escape."
Author: John Holt
6. "Madame Vastra and the others made their return to Paternoster Row by a circumspect route. Strax in particular was keen to intercept any individual he suspected might be following and forcibly remove a variety of their limbs and appendages. But Jenny prevailed upon him that most of the people he singled out were merely walking past. Given the lateness of the hour there were, thankfully, not many.‘What about him?' Strax said, pointing to a figure shambling slowly along on the opposite pavement.‘That old lady is selling lucky heather, and she's heading in a different direction so she's unlikely to be following us.'‘She could be bluffing. And who is this Lucky Heather anyway?'‘It's heather – it's a plant not a person. It's supposed to be lucky.'‘Not if I catch her, it won't be.'‘Strax,' Vastra said simply. ‘No."
Author: Justin Richards
7. "Don't look to the approval of others for your mental stability"
Author: Karl Lagerfeld
8. "To be angry once in a while is really good fun, because it makes others so miserable. But to be angry morning, noon and night, as I am, grows monotonous and prevents my gaining any other pleasure in life."
Author: L. Frank Baum
9. "Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is Enlightenment."
Author: Lao Tzu
10. "It seemed so natural, receiving it, watching others receive it, assuming that the approval of others determined our worth. Then one day we found we couldn't feel any worth without it. We'd forgotten that we were gifted in ways unimaginable, created with a unique purpose like no other, that people are hurting, that we beat that same hurt and we can help them. There is no one as valuable as you. Unlearn that old lie."
Author: Lee Goff
11. "As for others whose lives are not so ordered, he reminds himself constantly of the characters they exhibit daily and nightly at home and abroad, and of the sort of society they frequent; and the approval of such men, who do not even stand well in their own eyes, has no value for him."
Author: Marcus Aurelius
12. "Performance is done for the sight and approval of others. Service is done knowing that God is watching and approving whether or not anyone else is. Performance causes us to be enslaved to others' opinions, unable to say no, and prone to being overworked. Service frees us to do what God wants, thereby saying no as needed. Performance presses us toward perfectionism, where we seek to do everything just right so others will praise us. Service allows us to do our best, knowing that God's appreciation of us is secure regardless of our performance. Performance causes us to focus on the "big" things and only do what is highly visible or significant. Service allows us to do simple, humble, and menial tasks—the "little things"—knowing that the peasant Jewish carpenter we worship equally appreciates them both."
Author: Mark Driscoll
13. "Memories are bullets. Some whiz by and only spook you. Others tear you open and leave you in pieces."
Author: Richard Kadrey
14. "After much effort to live up to a glorious standard there came fatigue, wan hope, and boredom. I experienced extreme boredom. I saw others experiencing it too, many denying, by the way, that any such thing existed. And finally I decided that I would make boredom my subject matter. That I'd study it. That I'd become the world's leading authority on it. March, that was a red-letter day for humanity. What a field! What a domain! Titanic! Promethean! I trembled before it. I was inspired. I couldn't sleep. Ideas came in the night and I wrote them down, volumes of them. Strange that no one had gone after this systematically.Oh, melancholy, yes, but not modern boredom."
Author: Saul Bellow
15. "I could accept my circumstances, my life, people, and even events around me, without giving my approval or releasing my control over such. I don't have to like what happened; I just need to accept that it indeed occurred."
Author: Sharon E. Rainey
16. "But I'm not worried about seeking out the approval of others - that high school thing of joining the club."
Author: Stephan Jenkins
17. "Isn't this a microcosm of how our lives feel sometimes? I don't completely understand the rules, and I'm surrounded by others who are smarter. Fitter. Funnier. Better. But when we narrow our focus and know where to look for the approval of our Father, life takes on a glorious simplicity. The burning question is no longer "What did they think of that?" Or even "What did I think of that?" Now it's only "God, were You good with that? Thumbs-up? If You're good, I'm good." His acceptance becomes my guidance. And my reward."
Author: Steven Furtick
18. "A truly strong person does not need the approval of others any more than a lion needs the approval of sheep."
Author: Vernon Howard
19. "You should pull him back besides in all the lines before the quarter, just as you make the others advance."
Author: William Cavendish

Today's Quote

At this time we should take a brife moment to mention quacks: alternative therapists who sell vitamins and homeopathy sugar pills [the latter of which, by definition, contain no active ingredients], which perform no better than placebo in fair tests, and who use even cruder marketing tricks than the ones described in this book. In these people profit at all from the justified anger that people feel towards the pharmaceutical industry, then it comes at the expense of genuinely constructive activity. Selling ineffective sugar pills is not a meaningful policy response to the regulatory failure we have seen in this book"
