Absolutes quotes by Jeff Koons
#5. I'm interested in power. I'm interested in the kind of polarities and equilibriums that take place within sexuality and philosophy and sociology.

Absolutes quotes by David Duke
#8. Did you ever notice how many survivors they have? Did you ever notice that? Everybody - every time you turn around, 15,000 survivors meet here, 400 survivors convention there. I mean, did you ever notice? Nazis sure were inefficient, weren't they? Boy, boy, boy! ... You almost have no survivors that ever say they saw a gas chamber or saw the workings of a gas chamber ... they'll say these preposterous stories that anybody can check out to be a lie, an absolute lie. #Quote by David Duke
Absolutes quotes by Harry Crews
#9. I think all of us are looking for that which does not admit of bullshit ... If you tell me you can bench press 450, hell, we'll load up the bar and put you under it. Either you can do it or you can't do it - you can't bullshit. Ultimately, sports are just about as close to what one would call the truth as it is possible to get in this world. #Quote by Harry Crews
Absolutes quotes by Brad Bird
#10. I think the industry tends to like to think in the narrow sort of mindset of a businessman, and businessman absolutes, and movies really exist in a much grayer region of dreams and stuff like that, and instinct is prized in movies, it's not prized with the businessmen in movies, but movies themselves often reward instinct rather than pie charts. #Quote by Brad Bird
Absolutes quotes by Leslie Ludy
#11. God's sacred intent for you and for me is nothing short of absolute abandonment to Jesus, entire separation from the pollution of the world, and ardent worship of our King with every breath we take. #Quote by Leslie Ludy

#12. Listening is totally different from hearing. Hearing, anybody who is not deaf can do. Listening is a rare art, one of the last arts.

One has to be vulnerable to listen, and one has to be in deep love to listen. One has to be in utter surrender to listen. #Quote by Rajneesh

Absolutes quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#16. Knowledge of the Absolute depends upon no book, nor upon anything; it is absolute in itself. No amount of study will give this knowledge; is not theory, it is realization. Cleanse the dust from the mirror, purify your own mind, and in a flash you know that you are Brahman. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Absolutes quotes by Louis Agassiz
#17. Nature brings us back to absolute truth whenever we wander. #Quote by Louis Agassiz
Absolutes quotes by Stewart Brand
#18. Certain knowledge of what to fight for, and what to fight against, gives meaning to life and provides its own version of discipline: never give up. That kind of meaning is illusory, I now believe, and blinkered. Fealty to a mystical absolute is a formula for disaster, especially in transformative times. #Quote by Stewart Brand
Absolutes quotes by Ouida
#19. A great love is an absolute isolation and an absolute absorption. #Quote by Ouida
Absolutes quotes by Eric Hoffer
#20. Absolute power corrupts even when exercised for humane purposes. The benevolent despot who sees himself as a shepherd of the people still demands from others the submissiveness of sheep. The taint inherent in absolute power is not its inhumanity but its anti-humanity. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Absolutes quotes by Eve Ensler
#21. I think we are seeing the absolute and utter collapse of male politicians in this [U.S] country and we're seeing what the underpinnings of the power structure are, which are sexist underpinnings. #Quote by Eve Ensler

Absolutes quotes by Don Miguel Ruiz
#24. I love and respect all religions and philosophies. I see how they get formed, how they grow up, and how powerful they are. But for me to believe in a specific god - no. Because what I believe is that the infinite, the absolute, is a living being and the only one living being that really exists. #Quote by Don Miguel Ruiz
Absolutes quotes by John Hodgman
#25. I am someone who values truth - actual truth as opposed to 'truthiness.' #Quote by John Hodgman
Absolutes quotes by D. Todd Christofferson
#26. The scriptures, for example, discredit an ancient philosophy that has come back into vogue in our day-the philosophy of Korihor that there are no absolute moral standards, that "every man prospers according to his genius, and that every man conquers according to his strength; and whatsoever a man does is no crime" and "that when a man is dead, that is the end thereof". #Quote by D. Todd Christofferson
Absolutes quotes by Susan Jacoby
#27. The biggest religious wars and persecutions in history occur when religions, each claiming their own absolute truths, come into conflict. #Quote by Susan Jacoby
Absolutes quotes by Theophile Gautier
#28. Once [a cat] has given its love, what absolute confidence, what fidelity of affection! It will make itself the companion of your hours of work, of loneliness, or of sadness. It will lie the whole evening on your knee, purring and happy in your society, and leaving the company of creatures of its own society to be with you. #Quote by Theophile Gautier
Absolutes quotes by John Ruskin
#29. Greater completion marks the progress of art, absolute completion usually its decline. #Quote by John Ruskin
Absolutes quotes by Frank Herbert
#30. Paradox is a pointer telling you to look beyond it. If paradoxes bother you, that betrays your deep desire for absolutes. The relativist treats a paradox merely as interesting, perhaps amusing or even, dreadful thought, educational. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Absolutes quotes by Richard Feynman
#31. Looking back at the worst times, it always seems that they were times in which there were people who believed with absolute faith and absolute dogmatism in something. And they were so serious in this matter that they insisted that the rest of the world agree with them. And then they would do things that were directly inconsistent with their own beliefs in order to maintain that what they said was true. #Quote by Richard Feynman
Absolutes quotes by Jonathan Rosen
#32. It's the side-by-side culture of the Talmud I like so much. 'On the one hand' and 'on the other hand' is frustrating for people seeking absolute faith, but for me it gives religion an ambidextrous quality that suits my temperament. #Quote by Jonathan Rosen
Absolutes quotes by Anna Kendrick
#33. I used to exercise an hour every day - no excuses. I live in absolutes: I either exercise every day, or I let myself off the hook. I'm trying to find that balance of working out three or four days a week and sticking to it. #Quote by Anna Kendrick
Absolutes quotes by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
#34. Unless you make tremendous efforts, you will not be convinced that effort will take you nowhere. The self is so self-confident that unless it is totally discouraged it will not give up. Mere verbal conviction is not enough. Hard facts alone can show the absolute nothingness of the self-image. #Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Absolutes quotes by Judith Martin
#35. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, you may wear white shoes. Not before and not after. As a command, the White Shoe Edict should be clear and simple enough. Do not violate it. In a society in which everything else has become relative, a matter of how it makes you feel, a question between you and your conscience, and an opportunity for you to be really you, this is an absolute. #Quote by Judith Martin
Absolutes quotes by Margaret Atwood
#36. But nothing is more opaque
than absolute transparency. #Quote by Margaret Atwood

Absolutes quotes by Tim Irwin
#39. As noble as our intentions might be as we assume a leadership role, we are always one errant, unthinking action or careless word away from getting outside the boundaries of good judgment or even the moral absolutes that must frame all decisions. #Quote by Tim Irwin
Absolutes quotes by Lou Doillon
#40. Singing is the rawest thing. Having been naked in films or naked in photo shoots, it's nothing compared to singing. It's absolute nakedness. You are stripped bare! It's very strange. Acting seems much easier, in fact, because you are putting on a costume - whereas here, you are taking everything off. #Quote by Lou Doillon
Absolutes quotes by Lord Kelvin
#41. We only know God in His works, but we are forced by science to admit and to believe with absolute confidence in a Directive Power-in an influence other than physical, or dynamical, or electrical forces, #Quote by Lord Kelvin

Absolutes quotes by Betty Friedan
#50. The media and even, to some degree, leaders of women's organizations don't understand that the women's movement is an absolute part of society now. It is in the consciousness, it is taken for granted. It is part of the way women look at themselves, and women are looked at. #Quote by Betty Friedan
Absolutes quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#51. PYRRHONISM- An ancient philosophy, named for its inventor. It consisted of an absolute disbelief in everything but Pyrrhonism. Its modern professors have added that. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Absolutes quotes by Jeff Greenfield
#52. By every measure, John Kennedy's sex life was compulsive and reckless. At one level, it had clear public consequences. Knowledge of Kennedy's behavior gave FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover absolute job security, as well as the potential power to derail Kennedy's re-election had he survived assassination. #Quote by Jeff Greenfield
Absolutes quotes by Haruki Murakami
#53. There's no such thing as absolutes. #Quote by Haruki Murakami

Absolutes quotes by John Keegan
#55. Slavery in the modern world implies the absolute deprivation of the individual's liberty, while possession of weapons and mastery of their use are means to the individual's liberation. We do not perceive how a man may be armed and at the same time bereft of his freedom. #Quote by John Keegan
Absolutes quotes by Benjamin Tucker
#56. The right of the majority is absolute. #Quote by Benjamin Tucker
Absolutes quotes by Lysander Spooner
#57. Any government, that is its own judge of, and determines authoritatively for the people, what are its own powers over the people, is an absolute government of course. It has all the powers that it chooses to exercise. There is no other or at least no more accurate definition of a despotism than this. #Quote by Lysander Spooner
Absolutes quotes by Francis Schaeffer
#58. If you want a significant man, with absolutes, morality, and meaning, then you must have what the Bible insists upon - that God will judge men justly, and they will not be able to raise their voices because of the base upon which He judges them. #Quote by Francis Schaeffer
Absolutes quotes by Desmond Tutu
#59. Forgiveness is an absolute necessity for continued human existence. #Quote by Desmond Tutu
Absolutes quotes by David B. Haight
#60. One reason for the decline in moral values is that the world has invented a new, constantly changing and undependable standard of moral conduct referred to as "situational ethics." Now, individuals define good and evil as being adjustable according to each situation; this is in direct contrast to the proclaimed God-given absolute standard: "Thou shalt not!"-as in "Thou shalt not steal". #Quote by David B. Haight
Absolutes quotes by June Jordan
#61. Americans have begun to understand that trouble does not start somewhere on the other side of town. It seems to originate inside the absolute middle of the homemade cherry pie. #Quote by June Jordan
Absolutes quotes by Jacques Derrida

Absolutes quotes by Stormie O'martian
#63. Having absolutes in our life is freeing. Parents who love their children give them rules for their protection, and God does the same for His children. As a child of God, His laws free you to move into the plans and purposes He has for you. From His Word you find out what works and what doesn't work and never will. You don't have to wander down paths that will hurt you, rob you, ruin your life, and take you far away from the fulfillment and purpose God has for you. That's why God's Word is His love letter to you. #Quote by Stormie O'martian
Absolutes quotes by J.R. Ward
#64. The only thing that had tethered her to the earth had been him and it was strange, but she felt welded to him on some core level now. He had seen her at her absolute worst, at her weakest and most insane, and he hadn't looked away. He hadn't judged and he hadn't been burned.
It was as if in the heat of her meltdown they had melted together.
This was more than emotion. It was a matter of soul. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Absolutes quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#65. It is an absolute perfection ... to get the very most out of one's individuality. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Absolutes quotes by Samuel Butler
#66. The extremes of vice and virtue are alike detestable, and absolute virtue is as sure to kill a man as absolute vice is. #Quote by Samuel Butler
Absolutes quotes by Anne Enright

Absolutes quotes by Mikhail Bakunin
#68. Theology created the fiction of Satan which represents the revolt if an infinite being against the existence of an absolute infinity, against God. #Quote by Mikhail Bakunin
Absolutes quotes by Pablo Picasso
#69. The right to free expression is something one seizes, not something one is given ... if it does exist, it exists to be used against the established order ... There is absolute opposition between the artist and the state. #Quote by Pablo Picasso
Absolutes quotes by Peter Thiel
#70. A true bubble is when something is overvalued and intensely believed. Education may be the only thing people still believe in in the United States. To question education is really dangerous. It is the absolute taboo. It's like telling the world there's no Santa Claus. #Quote by Peter Thiel
Absolutes quotes by Stephen King
#71. Man has come to dominate the planet thanks to two essential traits. One is intelligence. The other has been the absolute willingness to kill anyone and anything that gets in his way. #Quote by Stephen King
Absolutes quotes by Gao Xingjian
#72. When I came overseas, I realized that there are many ideologies and many trends, and it's also very hard to produce honest art and honest literature. I decided that I didn't want to follow any of these ideologies or trends, because that's also a kind of pressure that doesn't allow absolute freedom. So I decided that I was only going to produce works that were satisfactory to me, and that meant not following any trends and being anti-ideological. #Quote by Gao Xingjian
Absolutes quotes by Peter McWilliams
#73. The laws against public nudity make no sense. The idea that Jerry Falwell can go topless while Cindy Crawford cannot is an absolute affront to logic, common sense and the 5000 year human struggle for aesthetic taste. #Quote by Peter McWilliams
Absolutes quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#74. The greatest contribution you can make to women's rights, is to be the absolute ... best at what you do. #Quote by Oprah Winfrey

Absolutes quotes by Robert Southey
#77. It is not for man to rest in absolute contentment. #Quote by Robert Southey
Absolutes quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#78. There are no eternal facts, as there are no absolute truths. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Absolutes quotes by Baker Brownell
#79. Art arises in those strange complexities of action that are called human beings. It is a kind of human behavior. As such it is not magic, except as human beings are magical. Nor is it concerned in absolutes, eternities, "forms," beyond those that may reside in the context of the human being and be subject to his vicissitudes. Art is not an inner state of consciousness, whatever that may mean. Neither is it essentially a supreme form of communication. Art is human behavior, and its values are contained in human behavior. #Quote by Baker Brownell
Absolutes quotes by Bertrand Russell
#80. Upon hearing via Littlewood an exposition on the theory of relativity: To think I have spent my life on absolute muck. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Absolutes quotes by Rafael Correa
#81. To assume all the powers is not good for anybody. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. All those experiments have a bad ending. #Quote by Rafael Correa
Absolutes quotes by George Orwell
#82. Winston could not definitely remember a time when his country had not been at war ... war had literally been continuous, though strictly speaking it had not always been the same war. The enemy of the moment always represented absolute evil. #Quote by George Orwell
Absolutes quotes by Sheila Walsh
#83. It's my absolute passionate belief that every single human being, man, woman, or child, is aching to find a face-to-face relationship with God. #Quote by Sheila Walsh
Absolutes quotes by Alfred Korzybski
#84. Let us repeat the two crucial negative premises as established firmly by all human experience: (1) Words are not the things we are speaking about; and (2) There is no such thing as an object in absolute isolation. #Quote by Alfred Korzybski
Absolutes quotes by Jeffrey Sachs
#85. It's quite possible to arrive in the year 2030 where people are no longer dying of poverty. We could actually help lead a global end-not a reduction, but an end-to absolute poverty ... I have always found that a committed, powerful group of leaders, can make a huge difference. #Quote by Jeffrey Sachs
Absolutes quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#86. Friendship that possesses the whole soul, and there rules and sways with an absolute sovereignty, can admit of no rival. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Absolutes quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#87. The separation of church and state is extremely important to any of us who hold to the original traditions of our nation. To change these traditions by changing our traditional attitude toward public education would be harmful, I think, to our whole attitude of tolerance in the religious area. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Absolutes quotes by Emile M. Cioran
#88. History is nothing but a procession of false Absolutes, a series of temples raised to pretexts, a degradation of the mind before the Improbable. #Quote by Emile M. Cioran
Absolutes quotes by Tennessee Celeste Claflin
#89. The absolute freedom of woman will be the dawn of the day of man's regeneration. In raising her he will elevate himself. #Quote by Tennessee Celeste Claflin
Absolutes quotes by John Adams
#90. The fundamental article of my political creed is that despotism, or limited sovereignty, or absolute power is the same [whether] in a majority of a popular assembly; an aristocratic council; or oligarchical junto and a single emperor - equally arbitrary, cruel, bloody and in every respect diabolical. #Quote by John Adams
Absolutes quotes by Kenneth Branagh
#91. Across all Cinderella versions it was clear that the 21st century was not very much in evidence, particularly in the character of Cinderella so it seemed, it felt actually as though it hadn't been done for quite some time, not with the kind of lushness that we could do it with, with an absolute removal of the passivity of Cinderella and finding an amusing way, a lighthearted but significant way of making her proactive and not a girl who's life is about waiting for a bloke. #Quote by Kenneth Branagh
Absolutes quotes by Robert J. Gula
#92. People often indiscriminately use absolutes in their utterances: every, everyone, everything, all, always, never, no one, nothing. Rarely are these absolute terms justified. #Quote by Robert J. Gula
Absolutes quotes by Clement Greenberg
#93. It's as though aesthetic value, quality, could be preserved only by concentrating on 'absolute' or 'autonomous' art: thus on visual art ... that held and moved and stirred the beholder as sheer decoration could not. #Quote by Clement Greenberg
Absolutes quotes by Edward Everett Hale
#94. In the pure mathematics we contemplate absolute truths which existed in the divine mind before the morning stars sang together, and which will continue to exist there when the last of their radiant host shall have fallen from heaven. #Quote by Edward Everett Hale
Absolutes quotes by Cassandra Clare
#95. Will suspected Jem was in fact cleverer than he was himself - but he lacked Will's tendency to assume the absolute worst about people and proceed from there. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Absolutes quotes by Casey Neistat
#96. Then HBO was the pie in the sky. HBO is the absolute ultimate. #Quote by Casey Neistat
Absolutes quotes by John Marshall
#97. When a law is in its nature a contract, when absolute rights have vested under that contract, a repeal of the law cannot divest those rights. The people can act only by their agents and, within the powers conferred upon them, their acts must be considered as the acts of the people. #Quote by John Marshall
Absolutes quotes by Mark Victor Hansen
#98. This is an absolute law: You've got to be rich inside to become and remain rich outside. Become rich inside and your mental equivalent will manifest in your experience. #Quote by Mark Victor Hansen
Absolutes quotes by Lucy Stone
#99. It is very little to me to have the right to vote, to own property, etc., if I may not keep my body, and its uses, in my absolute right #Quote by Lucy Stone
Absolutes quotes by Mark Twain
#100. A pilot must have a memory developed to absolute perfection. But there are two higher qualities which he also must have. He must have good and quick judgment and decision, and a cool, calm courage that no peril can shake. #Quote by Mark Twain
Absolutes quotes by Stifyn Emrys
#101. Obsoletes and absolutes are the stock in trade of religions that place their faith in an 'unchanging' god while faced with the reality of an ever-changing world. #Quote by Stifyn Emrys
Absolutes quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#102. Absolute passion cannot be understood by a third party. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Absolutes quotes by Joseph Sobran
#103. A belief in moral absolutes should always make us more, not less, critical of both sides in any conflict. This doesn't mean that both sides are equally wrong; it means that since we all fall short of moral perfection, even the side whose cause is truly righteous may commit terrible acts of violence in defense of that cause
and, worse, may feel quite justified in committing them. That is the difference between being righteous and being self-righteous. Moral standards are absolute; but human fidelity to them is always relative. #Quote by Joseph Sobran
Absolutes quotes by Jill Tweedie
#104. I am still sure of absolute wrong but much less certain of absolute right. #Quote by Jill Tweedie
Absolutes quotes by Nicholas Stern
#105. If you look at all the serious scientists in the world, there is no big disagreement on the basics of this ... it would be absolute lunacy to act as if climate change is not occurring. #Quote by Nicholas Stern
Absolutes quotes by Esther Hicks
#106. Being happy is the cornerstone of all that you are! Nothing is more important than that you feel good! And you have absolute and utter control about that because you can choose the thought that makes you worry or the thought that makes you happy; the things that thrill you, or the things that worry you. You have the choice in every moment. #Quote by Esther Hicks
Absolutes quotes by Martha Graham
#107. I use the words gods and goddesses principally, I think, to mean beautiful bodies - bodies that are absolute instruments. And I believe in discipline, I believe in a very definite technique. #Quote by Martha Graham
Absolutes quotes by Albert Camus
#108. If absolute truth belongs to anyone in this world, it certainly does not belong to the man or party that claims to possess it. #Quote by Albert Camus
Absolutes quotes by Anne Lamott
#109. I used to think that paired opposites were a given, that love was the opposite of hate, right the opposite of wrong. But now I think we sometimes buy into these concepts because it is so much easier to embrace absolutes than to suffer reality. I don't think anything is the opposite of love. Reality is unforgivingly complex. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Absolutes quotes by Fritjof Capra
#110. Genuine mental health would involve a balanced interplay of both modes of experience, a way of life in which one's identification with the ego is playful and tentative rather than absolute and mandatory, while the concern with material possessions is pragmatic rather than obsessive. #Quote by Fritjof Capra
Absolutes quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#111. Irony is a disciplinarian feared only by those who do not know it, but cherished by those who do. He who does not understand irony and has no ear for its whispering lacks of what might called the absolute beginning of the personal life. He lacks what at moments is indispensable for the personal life, lacks both the regeneration and rejuvenation, the cleaning baptism of irony that redeems the soul from having its life in finitude though living boldly and energetically in finitude. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Absolutes quotes by Joyce Meyer
#112. Everything God tells us to do is for our good. Whether it's direction you get in His Word or something He's specifically put in your heart for your situation in life, the absolute best thing you can ever do is obey Him promptly and completely. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Absolutes quotes by Derek R. Audette
#113. If it turns out that physical death truly results in the absolute cessation of consciousness, then it would seem to me that in the grand truth of things, every human who has ever lived, who has not committed every minute of their lives toward an effort in finding a cure for mortality, has died as an utter and miserable failure. #Quote by Derek R. Audette
Absolutes quotes by David Foster Wallace
#114. An ad that pretends to be art is
at absolute best
like somebody who smiles warmly at you only because he wants something from you. This is dishonest, but what's sinister is the cumulative effect that such dishonesty has on us: since it offers a perfect facsimile or simulacrum of goodwill without goodwill's real spirit, it messes with our heads and eventually starts upping our defenses even in cases of genuine smiles and real art and true goodwill. It makes us feel confused and lonely and impotent and angry and scared. It causes despair. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Absolutes quotes by Mikhail Bakunin
#115. If God really existed, it would be necessary to abolish Him. #Quote by Mikhail Bakunin
Absolutes quotes by Louise Gluck
#116. I had nothing and I was still changed. Like a costume, my numbness was taken away. Then hunger was added. #Quote by Louise Gluck
Absolutes quotes by Dalai Lama
#117. Buddha himself taught different teachings to different people under different circumstances. For some people, there are beliefs based on a Creator. For others, no Creator. The only "definitive truth" for Buddhism is the absolute negation of any one truth as the Definitive Truth. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Absolutes quotes by Anthony Eden
#118. I am one of a rare breed of true politicians who definitely say what they may or may not mean with absolute certainty. #Quote by Anthony Eden
Absolutes quotes by Allen Ginsberg
#119. This is the one and only firmament; therefore it is the absolute world. There is no other world. The circle is complete. I am living in Eternity. The ways of this world are the ways of Heaven. #Quote by Allen Ginsberg
Absolutes quotes by Anthony Bourdain
#120. What took me to cooking was that there was something honest about it, says David Chang. There is no lying in the kitchen. And no god there, either. He couldn't help you anyway. You either can - or can't - make an omelet. You either can - or can't - chop an onion, shake a pan, keep up with the other cooks, replicate again and again, perfectly, the dishes that need to be done. No credential, no amount of bullshit, no well-formed sentences or pleas for mercy will change the basic facts. The kitchen is the last meritocracy - a world of absolutes; one knows without any ambiguity at the end of each day how one did. #Quote by Anthony Bourdain
Absolutes quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#121. It profits me but little, after all, that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquility of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life ... #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Absolutes quotes by Lorraine Heath
#122. In his world, there was right and wrong, good and evil. Hers contained no absolutes. Hers was a world of grays. Hers was what his was truly becoming. The irony didn't escape him. At night, nothing was clear. Lines blurred. Shadows removed definitions.
Her dreams led her to the darkest parts of London where he couldn't follow and keep her safe. His dreams had ceased to exist long ago. #Quote by Lorraine Heath
Absolutes quotes by Sophie Cookson
#123. Mark Strong is an amazing person. I just kind of enjoyed watching him. He is just so calm, dedicated, professional, and an absolute gent as well. #Quote by Sophie Cookson
Absolutes quotes by Michael Haneke
#124. People expect me to be dark and gloomy, then write that I'm a jolly chap, and after all, that is what I am. I think it's a case of an absolute romantic naivety that there should be a parallel between the work and the artist. #Quote by Michael Haneke
Absolutes quotes by John Updike
#125. There is no pleasing New Englanders, my dear, their soil is all rocks and their hearts are bloodless absolutes. #Quote by John Updike
Absolutes quotes by Marie Lu
#126. Absolute power is absolute power, no matter what it's called. #Quote by Marie Lu
Absolutes quotes by Sri Chinmoy
#127. I am not even six feet tall. Yet I am praying to the Absolute Supreme to reach His infinite Height, which is far beyond even my imagination's flight. For me to long to grow into that Height - is this not a miracle? I am mortal. My thoughts, my deeds, my experiences - everything that I have and everything that I am - represent mortality. Yet despite everything that I have and everything that I am, I am longing for Immortality. Is this not a miracle? #Quote by Sri Chinmoy
Absolutes quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#128. Love is the supreme unifying principle of life. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Absolutes quotes by Tom Robbins
#129. Love makes the world go 'round, it's true, but lust stops the world in its tracks; love renders bearable the passage of time, lust causes time to stand still, lust kills time, which is not to say that it wastes it or whiles it aimlessly away but rather that it annihilates it, cancels it, extirpates it from continuum; preventing, while lasts, any lapse into the tense and shabby woes of temporal society, lust is the thousand-pound odometer needle on the dashboard of the absolute. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Absolutes quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#130. The man who kills a man kills a man.
The man who kills himself kills all men.
As far as he is concerned, he wipes out the world. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Absolutes quotes by June Jordan
#131. Suicide is absolute, and if you think you will survive by hiding who you really are, you are sadly misled: there is no such thing as partial or intermittent suicide. You can only survive if you - who you really are - do survive. #Quote by June Jordan
Absolutes quotes by Glen Duncan
#132. The first thing to say about Eve is that she was a big improvement on the Adam design, or that Adam was an extremely misguided variation on the Eve design. (Consider testicles. Two concentrated nuclei of absolute vulnerability. Where? Dangling between the legs. I rest my case.) #Quote by Glen Duncan
Absolutes quotes by Herbert Marcuse
#133. The criterion for free choice can never be an absolute one, but neither is it entirely relative. #Quote by Herbert Marcuse
Absolutes quotes by Buck Brannaman
#134. That absolute pure honesty of the horse, man that's just the greatest thing there is #Quote by Buck Brannaman
Absolutes quotes by Ayn Rand
#135. The moral absolute should be: if and when, in any dispute, one side initiates the use of physical force, that side is wrong - and no consideration or discussion of the issues is necessary or appropriate. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Absolutes quotes by Marisa Miller
#136. I feel my absolute best physically, mentally and spiritually when I'm surfing every day. #Quote by Marisa Miller
Absolutes quotes by Joseph Addison
#137. An honest private man often grows cruel and abandoned when converted into an absolute prince. Give a man power of doing what he pleases with impunity, you extinguish his fear, and consequently overturn in him one of the great pillars of morality. #Quote by Joseph Addison
Absolutes quotes by Florence Scovel Shinn
#138. Happiness and health must be earned by absolute control of the emotional nature. #Quote by Florence Scovel Shinn
Absolutes quotes by Julie Tallard Johnson
#139. Each of us is always blessed with third options, with choices. If there is one thing the scientific approach to living our life points to is – there is no end to our abilities to discover and make meaning. There are no "absolutes," or end point in our explorations and possibilities. The blessing comes in participating in our surroundings and consciously making meaning through our perceptions and choices. Everything is taken in as filled with blessing because no experience is exempt. We are always making meaning through our choices, but now, we do so consciously, deliberately and creatively while tapping into the universes power to manifest. We are like gardeners (always) in the garden of Eden – with the most basic choices sometimes awakening us to our true nature – do I eat the apple? Every decision as Joseph Campbell says, "is a destiny decision. #Quote by Julie Tallard Johnson
Absolutes quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#140. Beginning with Santa in infancy, and ending with the Tooth Fairy as the child acquires adult teeth. Or, plainly put, beginning with all the possibility of childhood, and ending with an absolute trust in the national currency. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Absolutes quotes by Elisabeth Elliot
#141. There is a popular notion about prayer that assumes that the thing asked for ought to be the object of faith - "Lord, give me this or that," wherefore "this" and "that" become the realities. No. The Bible states the absolutes that we can be certain of: the character of God, His love, His will that we be conformed to His Son's likeness, His sovereign control of all the universe. When faith latches on to those realities that we do not see with our eyes, it can never be confounded. If it makes the thing asked for its object, faith itself will dissolve if the Lord's answer is no, not yet or wait. In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion (Ps. 71:1, KJV). D #Quote by Elisabeth Elliot
Absolutes quotes by James A. Garfield
#142. The right of private judgment is absolute in every American citizen. #Quote by James A. Garfield
Absolutes quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#143. Loyalty means nothing unless it has at its heart the absolute principle of self-sacrifice. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Absolutes quotes by Geerhardus Vos
#144. By raising Christ from death, God as the supreme Judge set his seal to the absolute perfection and completeness of his atoning work. The resurrection is a public announcement to the world that the penalty of death has been borne by Christ to its bitter end and that in consequence the dominion of guilt has been broken, the curse annihilated forever more. #Quote by Geerhardus Vos
Absolutes quotes by Dennis Rainey
#145. Near beliefs are to blame for a new brand of Christianity that is epidemic in our homes and churches-a faith that has little flavor, little light and little influence. When near beliefs are our only source of motivation, tough stands are never taken, feathers are never ruffled, and absolutes are held very loosely. #Quote by Dennis Rainey
Absolutes quotes by Francis Schaeffer
#146. In passing, we should note this curious mark of our own age: the only absolute allowed is the absolute insistence that there is no absolute. #Quote by Francis Schaeffer
Absolutes quotes by Frank Herbert
#147. Everything you do, everything you sense and say is experiment. No deduction final. Nothing stops until dead and perhaps not even then, because each life creates endless ripples. Induction bounces within and you sensitize yourself to it. Deduction conveys illusions of absolutes. Kick the truth and shatter it! #Quote by Frank Herbert
Absolutes quotes by Mary Schapiro
#148. There are no absolutes in this world, and there will always be mistakes that are made within brokerage firms; there will always be people who set out to deceive the regulators and even deceive their own senior management. #Quote by Mary Schapiro
Absolutes quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#149. Absolute silence leads to sadness. It is the image of death. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Absolutes quotes by Tom Hiddleston
#150. I have a little office in my house and it is an absolute pigsty but I know exactly where everything is and there are little things stuck all over the walls, and papers in in-trays and files I have saved on my computer and playlists I have made on my iTunes - things that take me to a place that I think is appropriate, #Quote by Tom Hiddleston
Absolutes quotes by Samael Aun Weor
#151. May peace reign in all hearts; let us not forget that peace is light. Let us not forget that peace is an Essence emanated from the Absolute. It is light emanated from the Absolute. This light is the light of the Ancient of Days. Christ said: 'Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you.' [John 14:27] #Quote by Samael Aun Weor
Absolutes quotes by Derek R. Audette
#152. An unbending and absolute acceptance of any idea is a sure sign of a small mind, no matter the greatness of intellect possesed by the one accepting that idea. #Quote by Derek R. Audette
Absolutes quotes by Pope Pius XII
#153. There always exists an absolute norm to be preserved #Quote by Pope Pius XII
Absolutes quotes by Noam Chomsky
#154. Peace is preferable to war. But it's not an absolute value, and so we always ask, What kind of peace? #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Absolutes quotes by Lysander Spooner
#155. The right of absolute and irresponsible dominion is the right of property, and the right of property is the right of absolute, irresponsible dominion. The two are identical; the one necessarily implying the other. #Quote by Lysander Spooner
Absolutes quotes by Lorraine Hansberry
#156. Of love and my parents, there is little to be written; their relationship to their children was utilitarian. We were fed and housed and dressed and outfitted with more cash than our associates and that was all. We were also vaguely taught certain vague absolutes: that we were better than no one but infinitely superior to everyone... #Quote by Lorraine Hansberry
Absolutes quotes by Bruce Lee
#157. Art lives where absolute freedom is because when it is not, there can be no creativity. #Quote by Bruce Lee
Absolutes quotes by Graham Greene
#158. Point me out the happy man and I will point you out either extreme egotism, selfishness, evil
or else an absolute ignorance. #Quote by Graham Greene
Absolutes quotes by Roger Penrose
#159. But I think it is a serious issue to wonder about the other platonic absolutes of say beauty and morality. #Quote by Roger Penrose
Absolutes quotes by George Orwell
#160. The enemy of the moment always represented absolute evil, and it followed that any past or future agreement with him was impossible. #Quote by George Orwell
Absolutes quotes by Lloyd Kaufman
#161. The thing I find about the movie industry is that 99 percent of the people are absolute scum. They're horrible people, they really are. Very nasty killer rabbits who hate movies. But the other 1 percent are really the greatest, most wonderful people in the world. #Quote by Lloyd Kaufman
Absolutes quotes by Kelley Armstrong
#162. It wasn't about wanting to die or having nothing left to live for; it was about letting go. You live your life doing what you're supposed to do, following the rules, following your conscience no matter what your gut tells you - and most times, that's okay. Control is good. It allows you to believe in certainty and absolutes, like lining up the perfect shot. But when you hold on for so long, and hold on so tight, every once in a while you have to close your eyes and jump.
Kelley Armstrong - Exit Strategy #Quote by Kelley Armstrong
Absolutes quotes by Anais Nin
#163. I had been struck by the analogy between neurosis and romanticism. Romanticism was truly a parallel to neurosis. It demanded of reality an illusory world, love, an absolute which it could never obtain, and thus destroyed itself by the dream. #Quote by Anais Nin
Absolutes quotes by Chris Christie
#164. People have the absolute right to preach and to think and to say whatever they believe, and at the same time those beliefs can't be used as the basis for denying other people their equal rights and their equal freedom. #Quote by Chris Christie
Absolutes quotes by Joseph Goebbels
#165. It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion. #Quote by Joseph Goebbels
Absolutes quotes by Aneurin Bevan
#166. The Prime Minister has an absolute genius for putting flamboyant labels on empty luggage. #Quote by Aneurin Bevan
Absolutes quotes by Louis C.K.
#167. What we've done with our modern food supply is absolute insanity. It's not even real any more. You used to be able to give a kid an apple and they would love it. Kids can't even taste apples any more. Apples taste like paper to kids now. #Quote by Louis C.K.
Absolutes quotes by Craig Finn
#168. There's a lot of ways to be honest that don't necessarily involve absolute facts being true. I think that's something I absolutely try to do. #Quote by Craig Finn
Absolutes quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#169. Only when creation stops can we find the Absolute. The Absolute is in the soul, not in creation. So by stopping creation, we come to know the Absolute. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Absolutes quotes by Peter Drucker
#170. Absolute size by itself is no indicator of success and achievement, let alone of managerial competence. Being the right size is. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Absolutes quotes by Hanya Yanagihara
#171. The axiom of equality states that x always equals x: it assumes that if you have a conceptual thing named x, that it must always be equivalent to itself, that it has a uniqueness about it, that it is in possession of something so irreducible that we must assume it is absolutely, unchangeably equivalent to itself for all time, that its very elementalness can never be altered. But it is impossible to prove. Always, absolutes, nevers: these are the words, as much as numbers, that make up the world of mathematics. Not everyone liked the axiom of equality––Dr. Li had once called it coy and twee, a fan dance of an axiom––but he had always appreciated how elusive it was, how the beauty of the equation itself would always be frustrated by the attempts to prove it. I was the kind of axiom that could drive you mad, that could consume you, that could easily become an entire life.

But now he knows for certain how true the axiom is, because he himself––his very life––has proven it. The person I was will always be the person I am, he realizes. The context may have changed: he may be in this apartment, and he may have a job that he enjoys and that pays him well, and he may have parents and friends he loves. He may be respected; in court, he may even be feared. But fundamentally, he is the same person, a person who inspires disgust, a person meant to be hated. #Quote by Hanya Yanagihara
Absolutes quotes by H. G. Bissinger
#172. I work not only for the gathering and assimilation of knowledge, but also to teach the fact that one can be brilliant without being arrogant, that great intellectual capacity brings great responsibility, that the quest for knowledge should never supplant the joy of learning, that one with great capacities must learn to be tolerant and appreciate those with lesser or different absolutes, #Quote by H. G. Bissinger
Absolutes quotes by Derek Landy
#173. There's no such thing as winning or losing. There is won and there is lost, there is victory and defeat. There are absolutes. Everything in between is still left to fight for. Serpine will have won only when there is no one left to stand against him. Until then, there is only the struggle, because tides do what tides do–they turn. #Quote by Derek Landy
Absolutes quotes by Antoine Rivarol
#174. The absolute ruler may be a Nero, but he is sometimes a Titus or Marc Aurelius; the people is often Nero, but never Marc Aurelius. #Quote by Antoine Rivarol
Absolutes quotes by Peter Singer
#175. I'm a Utilitarian, so I don't see the rule against lying as absolute; it's always subject to some overriding utility which may prevent its exercise. #Quote by Peter Singer
Absolutes quotes by Randall Terry
#176. Once you depart from the Ten Commandments as being the foundation of right and wrong, you are in a free fall. #Quote by Randall Terry
Absolutes quotes by Pearl S. Buck
#177. In this unbelievable universe in which we live, there are no absolutes. Even parallel lines, reaching into infinity, meet somewhere yonder. #Quote by Pearl S. Buck
Absolutes quotes by Roger Craig Smith
#178. The only way to describe my involvement in 'Planes' is that it's an absolute dream come true for me. Getting to be a bad guy in any project is fun, let alone being a Disney villain. I can't imagine anything getting better than that! #Quote by Roger Craig Smith
Absolutes quotes by Frank Zane
#179. The truth I've discovered is that you don't have to lift enormous weights to grow muscle. By using stricter form, slower negatives, and stretching between sets you can get an incredible pump in all your workouts. Numbers are an abstraction, especially to muscles. Your body doesn't know the absolute weight of what you lift, it only recognizes how heavy it feels. The secret is to make lighter weights feel heavier. #Quote by Frank Zane
Absolutes quotes by Auliq Ice
#180. Dear Gods of Heaven and Earth.
The universe has began, without a beginning.
Even if it's divided into Heaven, Earth, and Man, the essence is the same.
Although Heaven, Earth, and Man are different in form, they have the same nature.
Although Heaven is full of spirits, because there is no box to contain it, fom heaven came Man.
When the three absolutes move in harmony, energy is created, covering all the material and the spirit for the Man.
All the use of all creation may change, the basic mind is originally the bright light.
Shine on Man with respect for it, Man is the best of the universe. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Absolutes quotes by Duff Goldman
#181. If you're going to figure something out, study ethics. You can ask What's the answer? What's Right and Wrong? What I learned is that nobody knows the answer and there is no Right and Wrong. So I'm incapable of becoming a fundamentalist because there are no absolutes, there's always a what if. #Quote by Duff Goldman
Absolutes quotes by Dario Argento
#182. You must push everything to the absolute limit or else life will be boring. People will be boring. #Quote by Dario Argento
Absolutes quotes by Adolf Hitler
#183. The thinking of the one, therefore, will be determined by eternal truth, the actions of the other more by the practical reality of the moment. The greatness of the one lies in the absolute abstract soundness of his idea ... #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Absolutes quotes by Aristotle.
#184. The good man is he for whom, because he is virtuous, the things that are absolutely good are good; it is also plain that his use of these goods must be virtuous and in the absolute sense good. #Quote by Aristotle.
Absolutes quotes by Christian Lous Lange
#185. The idea of eternity lives in all of us. We thirst to live in a belief which raises our small personality to a higher coherence - a coherence which is human and yet superhuman, absolute and yet steadily growing and developing, ideal and yet real. #Quote by Christian Lous Lange
Absolutes quotes by Jason Schwartzman
#186. I'm a very slow reader, and books of interviews are an absolute favorite of mine. #Quote by Jason Schwartzman
Absolutes quotes by Martha Beck
#187. True freedom starts with absolute honesty. The moment you call a problem by its real name, you're already learning how to make it less harmful. #Quote by Martha Beck
Absolutes quotes by Kevin Pietersen
#188. I haven't turned into an absolute geek who doesn't like doing fun things. #Quote by Kevin Pietersen
Absolutes quotes by Regina Spektor
#189. I go through insanity before a show. It's not really a process but it's like absolute mortal fear. #Quote by Regina Spektor
Absolutes quotes by Bertrand Russell
#190. Dogmatism and skepticism are both, in a sense, absolute philosophies; one is certain of knowing, the other of not knowing. What philosophy should dissipate is certainty, whether of knowledge or ignorance. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Absolutes quotes by Wolfgang Gullich
#191. Doing a route at the absolute limit of the possible demands and encourages a coordination of all peripheral factors. It is, at the same time, a sign of joy and contentment with that moment, perhaps even a mirror of the equlibrium in your inner spirit, a mirror of a liberated state of mind. #Quote by Wolfgang Gullich
Absolutes quotes by Ellen Goodman
#192. The central paradox of motherhood is that while our children become the absolute center of our lives, they must also push us backout in the world ... But motherhood that can narrow our lives can also broaden them. It can make us focus intensely on the moment and invest heavily in the future. #Quote by Ellen Goodman
Absolutes quotes by Christian Boltanski
#193. The sole fact of having a school to train creative people is absolute lunacy ... The idea of 'pedagogical vision' is ignoble, it has nothing to do with art, it's contrary to art. I really believe in teaching, despite what I say. #Quote by Christian Boltanski
Absolutes quotes by William Lloyd Garrison
#194. It [slavery] has exercised absolute mastery over the American Church ... With the Bible in their hands, her priesthood have attempted to prove that slavery came down from God out of heaven. They have become slaveholders and dealers in human flesh. #Quote by William Lloyd Garrison
Absolutes quotes by Brian Eno
#195. A studio is an absolute labyrinth of possibilities - this is why records take so long to make because there are millions of permutations of things you can do. The most useful thing you can do is to get rid of some of those options before you start #Quote by Brian Eno
Absolutes quotes by Maimonides
#196. Now, we occupy a lowly position, both in space and rank in comparison with the heavenly sphere, and the Almighty is Most High not in space, but with respect to absolute existence, greatness and power. #Quote by Maimonides
Absolutes quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#197. Our means of receiving impressions are absurdly few, and our notions of surrounding objects infinitely narrow. We see things only as we are constructed to see them, and can gain no idea of their absolute nature. With five feeble senses we pretend to comprehend the boundlessly complex cosmos. #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
Absolutes quotes by George Bailey
#198. As for astronomy, the Greeks did not accept their own or any of the original mythologies with which they came in contact. The refusal to accept mythological explanations for natural phenomena forced the Greeks to disregard the primary evidence of their senses, that is, the evidence of mere appearances. They reasoned their way out of the dead end imposed by the impression that up and down were directional absolutes and therefore the earth was the centre of the universe. By the middle of the fourth century BC (355) the earth and the other visible planets were recognised to be in orbital as well as other movement and the sun the fixed centre of the heavens. A gigantic first step in the direction of the Copernican system had been made. In the cosmology of Philolaos (which is the first recorded pre-Copernican version) there are a number of 'Mack Sennett' aspects, such as the assertion that all forms of life on the moon were fifteen times larger than those on the earth. This was because the author had determined the 'moonday' to be fifteen times as long as our day (that is, half a month). #Quote by George Bailey
Absolutes quotes by Jude Deveraux
#199. On his face was an expression of absolute love. Melting, soul-touching, raw, unbridled love, the kind of person dies for, sacrifices and suffers for. It was the kind of love that a person would wait two hundred years to see fulfilled. It was True Love in its purest form. #Quote by Jude Deveraux
Absolutes quotes by John Creasey
#200. Never buy an editor or publisher a lunch or a drink until he has bought an article, story or book from you. This rule is absolute and may be broken only at your peril. #Quote by John Creasey
