Favorite Someone Being Happy Without You Quotes

1. "Perhaps I've been rushing my whole entire life, jumping into things headfirst without thinking them through. Running through the days without noticing the minutes."
Author: Cecelia Ahern
2. "Young ladies have a remarkable way of letting you know that they think you a "quiz" without actually saying the words. A certain superciliousness of look, coolness of manner, nonchalance of tone, express fully their sentiments on the point, without committing them by any positive rudeness in word or deed."
Author: Charlotte Brontë
3. "There came an awful day when I picked up the phone and knew at once, as one does with some old friends even before they speak, that it was Edward. He sounded as if he were calling from the bottom of a well. I still thank my stars that I didn't say what I nearly said, because the good professor's phone pals were used to cheering or teasing him out of bouts of pessimism and insecurity when he would sometimes say ridiculous things like: 'I hope you don't mind being disturbed by some mere wog and upstart.' The remedy for this was not to indulge it but to reply with bracing and satirical stuff which would soon get the gurgling laugh back into his throat. But I'm glad I didn't say, 'What, Edward, splashing about again in the waters of self-pity?' because this time he was calling to tell me that he had contracted a rare strain of leukemia. Not at all untypically, he used the occasion to remind me that it was very important always to make and keep regular appointments with one's physician."
Author: Christopher Hitchens

5. "Some people spend their entire lives devoted to a religion that claims to be the ‘right' religion... they often deny scientific evidence that contradicts their archaic holy books, they sometimes oppress those who disagree with them, and they always do what they do in the name of an unknowable deity... but sometimes, they wake up. Occasionally, they realize that all religions are man-made and that none of them are ‘right.' And when they do, they can live happy and fulfilling lives without dogma and without anticipating or fearing an afterlife."
Author: David G. McAfee
6. "The testimony of the greatest humans who have ever lived is that the way to make the most of ourselves is by transcending ourselves. We must learn to move beyond self-centeredness to make room within ourselves for others. When you transcend yourself, the fact will be confirmed by the quality of your life. We will attain – even if only momentarily – a transparency and a radiance of being which results from living both within and beyond yourself. This is the promise and the excitement of self-understanding."
Author: Don Richard Riso
7. "Well, like there's no river without a bend, there's no life without its unhappiness."
Author: Duong Thu Huong
8. "The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all."
Author: G.K. Chesterton

Author: Herbert Spencer
10. "A dinosaur out of context is like a character without a story. Worse than that, the character suffers from amnesia."
Author: Jack Horner
11. "My worst fears from jury selection manifested themselves in the verdict. This jury needed someone to tell them exactly how Caylee died. Piecing it together from circumstantial evidence was not good enough for them. They wanted the answers on a silver platter, but we didn't have the evidence to serve it that way. It's not just the verdict that tells me this, but also the manner in which it was reached. The fact that they didn't request any materials to review. The fact that they didn't have any questions for the judge. If the statements that the foreman of the jury made to the media are true, ten of these twelve jurors felt that ninety minutes of deliberation was sufficient to fully weigh, consider, and reject four weeks' worth of testimony that we on the prosecution used to establish that this was first-degree murder. The rest of the thirteen hours of deliberation had been spent trying to convince the two holdout jurors of the decision."
Author: Jeff Ashton
12. "How could I have thought that I needed to cure myself in order to fit into the 'real' world? I didn't need curing, and the world didn't, either; the only thing that did need curing was my understanding of my place in it. Without that understanding - without a sense of belonging to the real world - it was impossible to thrive in an imagined one."
Author: Jonathan Franzen
13. "I can't be yours forever, Mab," I told her, the words flying into my mouth as if by magic. "I already belong to someone else. I belong to Alice!"
Author: Joseph Delaney
14. "JUAN PABLO MONTOYA Formula 1, and NASCAR Race Car Driver on DANGEROUS ODDS by Marisa Lankester:Reading Dangerous Odds only leads me to confirm the need people have for adrena-line. As a racecar driver, it's always about being on the edge and that is what I experienced throughout the pages of Dangerous Odds. Every chapter seemed like a race; trying to determine the odds, the risks worth taking - choosing friends and discovering enemies... It drove me to expect the unexpected. Knowing it's a true story gives us the reality check we all need from time to time. A must read book!!!"
Author: Juan Pablo Montoya
15. "The fact that at the moment the distinction is being made, a young adult, as opposed to an adult, is the one reading it. In other words, I don't entirely believe in the distinction. A great book is a great book, and it's impossible to say what part of a person is going to connect to it."
Author: Kristin Cashore

Author: Li Young Lee
17. "I need to give you one last bit of advice in the off chance this rather extraordinary and enviable situation in which you find yourself is actually true- that somehow you've fallen deep down into a Cordova story. I stared back at him. Be the good guy, he said. How do I know I'm the good guy? He pointed at me, nodding. A very wise question. You don't. Most bad guys think they're good. But there are a few signifiers. You'll be miserable. You'll be hated. You'll fumble around in the dark, alone and confused. You'll have little insight as to the true nature of things, not until the very last minute, and only if you have the stamina and the madness to go to the very, very end. But most importantly- and critically- you will act without regard for yourself. You'll be motivated by something that has nothing to do with the ego. You'll do it for justice. For grace. For love. Those large rather heroic qualities only the good have the strength to carry on their shoulders. And you'll listen."
Author: Marisha Pessl
18. "Without food, man can live at most but a few weeks; without it, all other components of social justice are meaningless."
Author: Norman Borlaug
19. "Episodes is about discovery of one's psyche and true personality while being completely absorbed in one's one Mind and thoughts. A story of coping and finding an unsure contentment. Finding the Rational Soul in all of us."
Author: Rodney Richards
20. "If he needed an answer about how much he'd changed, that provided it. He didn't want Fatima Hynes or any other nameless female with vacant eyes and an ample bosom. He didn't want anyone else, ever. He wanted Evelyn Marie Ruddick—and he'd be damned if he was going to let Neckcloth Alvington have her without a fight. And if there was one thing he knew how to do better than anyone else in London, it was how to fight dirty"
Author: Suzanne Enoch
21. "Auschwitz begins wherever someone looks at a slaughterhouse and thinks: they're only animals."
Author: Theodor W. Adorno
