John Scott Quotes

"It seems we are capable of immense love and loyalty, and as capable of deceit and atrocity. Its probably this shocking ambivalence that makes us unique."

Robert A Rice Jr Quotes

Gabe Berman Quotes

"Maybe we should remember to smile more often. You know, just for the sake of smiling."

Nicholas Murray Butler Quotes

"The analytical geometry of Descartes and the calculus of Newton and Leibniz have expanded into the marvelous mathematical method—more daring than anything that the history of philosophy records—of Lobachevsky and Riemann, Gauss and Sylvester. Indeed, mathematics, the indispensable tool of the sciences, defying the senses to follow its splendid flights, is demonstrating today, as it never has been demonstrated before, the supremacy of the pure reason."

Garry Trudeau Quotes

"Coming up with ideas is really hard - they dont spontaneously pop into my head while Im cutting vegetables."

Eric Allenbaugh Quotes

"You are in charge of your feelings, beliefs, and actions. And you teach others how to behave toward you. While you cannot change other people, you can influence them through your own behaviors and actions. By being a living role model of what you want to receive from others, you create more of what you want in your life."

Robert Menzies Quotes

Donna Karan Quotes

"I give Reiki, which is energy, but I dont tell too many people that."

Benjamin Breedlove Quotes

"Then I looked at myself in the mirror. I was proud of myself, of my entire life, of everything I have done. It was the BEST feeling... I didnt want to leave that place. I wish I never woke up."

Tom Walsh Quotes

"We lose our ability to live fully if we neglect or ignore our responsibility to the other people who share this planet with us. We simply cannot reach our full potential without the insights and observations that other people--our teachers--have to give us. We cannot feel whole until we are helping other people to reach for their potential and to grow as strong as they can grow. We do need down time, and we do need time to ourselves, but we very much need to acknowledge our ties to our fellow human beings and act as if those people meant more to us than our jobs or pets or cars do. They are much more important than anything material that we ever can get our hands on or strive for."

Quotes About College Ending

"Nostalgia"How often we use this word reminiscing about the past - our childhood, school days, college days.. We feel nostalgic, we dwell in the memories of the past, we talk about how great those days were and how we would do anything to just go back in time and live those days again..Perhaps we fail to realize the fact that tomorrow we will say the same things about today, about the days we are living in now, about the emotions we are feeling now, about the time we are spending now..I love this day. I love this weird feeling I feel today. I belong here." - Author: Sanhita Baruah

Quotes About Living Vicariously

"Dan suggested to Owen and me that we were better off to not involve ourselves with Hester. How true! But how we wanted to be involved in the thrilling real-life sleaziness that we suspected Hester was in the thick-of. We were in a phase, through television and the movies, of living only vicariously. Even faintly sordid silliness excited us if it put us in contact with love." - Author: John Irving

Quotes About Operate

"The root of all inauthentic manifestations of being-with-others is the attitude of self-concern. It is in this state of mind that, either consciously or unconsciously, we reduce the central aim of all value and meaning to the accomplishment of the welfare of ourselves alone. This attitude can operate very deviously even in the person who outwardly appears to be thoroughly altruistic. Despite all magnanimous commitments and generous deeds, it silently measures the ultimate worth of these things in terms of the personal satisfaction that results from them. It is the root of inauthentic being-with because it is primarily responsible in preventing our essential being-with-others from full and genuine expression." - Author: Stephen Batchelor

Quotes About Being Nominated

Quotes About Friends Are Gifts

"Not him with great possessions should you in truth call blest; with better right does he claim the name of happy man who realizes how to make use of the gods gifts wisely, is skilled to meet harsh poverty and endure, as one who dreads dishonor far more than death; a man like that for friends beloved, or for his country fears not to perish." - Author: Horace

Quotes About Unachievable Goals

"Spirit and soul is horseshit of the worst sort. Obviously there are no fairies, no Santa Clauses, no spirits. What there is, is human goals and purposes as noted by sane existentialists. But a lot of transcendentalists are utter screwballs." - Author: Albert Ellis

Quotes About Fistfight

"People in groups are like sheep. Like, when your very best friend is surrounded by other people, she cares more about what everybody else thinks that she cares about you. The more people there are, the more they act like animals."That doesnt make sense.""Sure it does. Have you ever heard of two guys getting in a fistfight when theres nobody around to watch? It never happens. It takes a crowd to bring out the beast. You cant trust anybody when youre not alone with them. Anybody. You have to know the boundaries." - Author: Pete Hautman
