Quotes About Refusing To Grow Up

"But I too hate long books: the better, the worse. If theyre bad they merely make me pant with the effort of holding them up for a few minutes. But if theyre good, I turn into a social moron for days, refusing to go out of my room, scowling and growling at interruptions, ignoring weddings and funerals, and making enemies out of friends. I still bear the scars of Middlemarch." - Author: Vikram Seth

Quotes About Listening To Old Songs

"Lately, though, hed just been tired in general. Tired of people. Tired of books and TV and the nightly news and songs on the radio hed heard years before and hadnt liked much in the first place. He was tired of his clothes and tired of his hair and tired of other peoples clothes and other peoples hair. He was tired of wishing things made sense. Hed gotten to a point where he was pretty sure hed heard everything anyone had to say on any given subject and so it seemed he spent his days listening to old recordings of things that hadnt seemed fresh the first time hed heard them.Maybe he was simply tired of life, of the absolute effort it took to get up every goddamned morning and walk out with into the same fucking day with only slight variations in the weather and food.He wondered if this was what clinical depression felt like, a total numbness, a weary lack of hope." - Author: Dennis Lehane

Quotes About Logic And Wisdom

"Humankind has accumulated generation upon generation of knowledge, the culmination of which is the vast and useful technological array we see everywhere in modern society. Despite this great accumulation of knowledge and technology, we still suffer from starvation and war. The difference between the past and the present is the difference between throwing rocks and shooting missiles. We are still in conflict. Suffering on a fundamental level hasnt ceased. But we nevertheless persist in the notion that if we just amass a bit more knowledge, well all be o.k. Maybe a new philosophy will do the trick, or a new system of government. But all of this has been tried many times.Knowledge builds on the past and has its place. Wisdom is beyond time. Its the direct perception of reality as it is. And in this direct seeing of what is lies the potential of transformation—a transformation that is not merely a redecoration of the past but a transformation of humanity that embodies the eternally new." - Author: H.E. Davey

Quotes About Measuring Happiness

"When I have my interview with my God, our conversation will focus on the individuals whose self-esteem I was able to strengthen, whose faith I was able to reinforce, and whose discomfort I was able to assuage—a doer of good, regardless of what assignment I had. These are the metrics of that matter in measuring my life. This realization, which occurred nearly fifteen years ago, guided me every day to seek opportunities to help people in ways tailored to their individual circumstances. My happiness and my sense of worth has been immeasurably improved as a result." - Author: Clayton Christensen

Quotes About Dignity Self Respect

"A teenager deserves a library that recognizes reality. He needs an information source and study area that does not impose arbitrary, crippling rules on him. His library should recognize that dignity and silence are not prior requisites to learning […] He would like, needs, and deserves for other people to stop trying to protect him and allow him the right to choose information for himself […] Most of all the teenager needs people in libraries to recognize and accept him as a respectable human being." - Author: Anne Osborn
