Acceptance quotes by Keith Miller
#7. Our tremendous drive for social acceptance and toward conformity in our time is causing us to train our children to be a generation of young liars who do not even realise they are lying. We train our children to be subtly dishonest almost from the crib. "Shh... don't cry in front of all these people. #Quote by Keith Miller

Acceptance quotes by Liezi
#10. Chuang-tzu once told a story about two persons who both lost a sheep. One person got very depressed and lost himself in drinking, sex, and gambling to try to forget this misfortune. The other person decided that this would be an excellent chance for him to study the classics and quietly observe the subtleties of nature. Both men experience the same misfortune, but one man lost himself because he was too attached to the experience of loss, while the other found himself because he was able to let go of gain and loss. #Quote by Liezi

Acceptance quotes by Lee L Jampolsky
#14. When we combine acceptance with self-responsibility we can then see that whenever we are in a painful or disturbing situation we have two choices: We can work compassionately to bring something positive to the situation or leave. However, the key is the mental stance that we make the choice from, and thus the first step is always accepting the moment without resistance. #Quote by Lee L Jampolsky
Acceptance quotes by Yash Thakur
#15. Awakening is the greatest acceptance of nature. #Quote by Yash Thakur
Acceptance quotes by Human Angels

Acceptance quotes by James Schall
#18. As Pope Benedict writes in Caritas in Veritate: Only in truth does charity shine forth, only in truth can charity be authentically lived. Truth is the light that gives meaning and value to charity. That light is both the light of reason and the light of faith, through which the intellect attains to the natural and supernatural truth of charity: it grasps its meaning as gift, acceptance, and communion. Without truth, charity degenerates into sentimentality.[2] #Quote by James Schall
Acceptance quotes by Mary Barnett Gilson
#19. It is my conviction that in general women are more snobbish and class conscious than men and that these ignoble traits are a product of men's attitude toward women and women's passive acceptance of this attitude. #Quote by Mary Barnett Gilson
Acceptance quotes by Idries Shah
#20. Western society has in the past few decades taken a great step forward, which gives its members a perhaps unparalleled opportunity. This has been due to the final recognition of the way in which people can be (and are) conditioned to believe virtually anything. Although this knowledge existed earlier, it was confined to a few, and was taught to relatively small groups, because it was considered subversive. Once, however, the paradox of change of 'faith' began to disturb Western scientists in the Korean war, they were not long in explaining - even in replicating - the phenomenon. As with so many other discoveries, this one had to wait for its acceptance until there was no other explanation. Hence, work which Western scientists could have done a century or more earlier was delayed.
Still, better late than never. What remains to be done is that the general public should absorb the facts of mind-manipulation. Failure to do so has resulted in an almost free field for the cults which are a bane of Western existence. In both East and West, the slowness of absorption of these facts has allowed narrow, political, religious and faddish fanaticism to arise, to grow and to spread without the necessary 'immunization'. In illiberal societies it is forbidden to teach these facts. In liberal ones, few people are interested: but only because mind-manipulation is assumed to be something that happens to someone else, and people are selfish in many ways, though charitable in others. Yet the #Quote by Idries Shah
Acceptance quotes by Alexandra Robbins
#21. If there is a single factor that spells out the difference between the cafeteria fringe headed for greatness and those doomed for low self-worth, even more than a caring teacher or a group of friends, it is supportive, accepting parents who not only love their children unconditionally, but also don't make them feel as if their idiosyncrasies qualify as "conditions" in the first place. #Quote by Alexandra Robbins
Acceptance quotes by Franz Kafka
#22. I want in fact more of you. In my mind I am dressing you with light; I am wrapping you up in blankets of complete acceptance and then I give myself to you. I long for you; I who usually long without longing, as though I am unconscious and absorbed in neutrality and apathy, really, utterly long for every bit of you. #Quote by Franz Kafka
Acceptance quotes by Jennifer Ashley
#23. I loved and adored you, but I drained you like a thirsty man at a spring. I loved what you could give me - your admiration, your acceptance, your love, your forgiveness. I forgot to love you for yourself. #Quote by Jennifer Ashley
Acceptance quotes by William James
#24. At bottom, the whole concern of religion is with the manner of our acceptance of the universe. #Quote by William James
Acceptance quotes by Elizabeth Bowen
#25. The way one is envisaged by other people - what easier way is there of envisaging oneself? There is a fatalism in one's acceptance of it. Solitude is not the solution, one feels followed. Choice - choice of those who are to surround one, choice of those most likely to see you rightly - is the only escape. #Quote by Elizabeth Bowen
Acceptance quotes by Robert Farrar Capon
#26. Judgment falls not on the unacceptable but only on those who will not accept acceptance #Quote by Robert Farrar Capon
Acceptance quotes by J.C. Cooper
#27. Next to the dragon, and connected with it, water is the most frequently used symbol in Taosim. It is the strength in apparent weakness, the fluidity of life, an also symbolic of the state of coolness of judgment, acceptance and passionlessness, as opposed to the heat of argument, the friction of opposition, and the emotion of desire. Water fertilizes, refreshes and purifies and it is symbolic of gentle persuasion in government of the state and the individual. It occupies the lowest position, yet is the most powerful of forces. The highest goodness in like water. #Quote by J.C. Cooper
Acceptance quotes by Saul D. Alinsky
#28. Curiosity, irreverence, imagination, sense of humor, a free and open mind, an acceptance of the relativity of values and of the uncertainty of life, all inevitably fuse into the kind of person whose greatest joy is creation. #Quote by Saul D. Alinsky
Acceptance quotes by Franco Santoro
#29. Acceptance leads to the direct experience of true love. It confronts us with the awareness that love has nothing to do with what is advertised in consensus reality, that there is a deeper love shunned by the outer world. This love becomes our task to explore, even if this means doing so alone.

A most significant experience on the way to acceptance is to acknowledge aloneness.

Aloneness (all-oneness) is our authentic nature. We are always alone. We came into this planet alone and we will leave alone. And also during our whole staying in this world, no matter how we engage in relationships, we continue to be alone, although we may forget about it or pretend it is not the case.

True love have nothing to do with the idea that someone is the other half of my soul and that I need him or her in order to be whole and feel complete. Love is not being half of an entirety with another, love is being both a whole, is accepting to be alone, and only when you can be alone with someone there is true love regardless of whether this aloneness is accepted by the other or not. #Quote by Franco Santoro
Acceptance quotes by Daniel McCoy
#30. But Odin had a trick up his sleeve. For his final question to Vafthrudnir, he asked, "And what, wise giant, did Odin whisper in the ear of Balder, before that great son of his was burned on the funeral pyre?"
Vafthrudnir became livid with rage. "Now I see who you really he said grimly, "for only Odin himself could know the answer that question." He clenched his teeth and his fists, and closed his eyes. When he opened them, however, his face had an expression of melancholy acceptance, and he said, "Now for the first time in my life I have lost a contest of lore. But my consolation will be that I lost it to Odin, the most knowledgeable being there is. #Quote by Daniel McCoy
Acceptance quotes by Jennifer Armintrout
#31. The message of body acceptance built on Jennifer Lawrence's soundbites only empowers those who are willing to ignore the fact that her statements reinforce our current cultural views rather than subverting them. #Quote by Jennifer Armintrout
Acceptance quotes by Dave Matthes
#32. When you can no longer differentiate between the insanity spewed onto the blank page, and the madness evident in the all-but shattered mirror ... that's when you know you're doing it right. #Quote by Dave Matthes
Acceptance quotes by George R.R. Martin
#33. Familiarity is the father of acceptance. #Quote by George R.R. Martin
Acceptance quotes by Joshua L. Liebman
#34. Tolerance is the positive and cordial effort to understand another's beliefs, practices, and habits without necessarily sharing or accepting them. #Quote by Joshua L. Liebman
Acceptance quotes by Isaac Marion
#35. I am Dead, but it's not so bad. I've learned to live with it. #Quote by Isaac Marion
Acceptance quotes by Nathaniel Branden
#36. In the inner courtroom of my mind, mine is the only judgment that counts. #Quote by Nathaniel Branden
Acceptance quotes by Himmilicious
#37. Things you call wrong, describe your levels of acceptance and understanding.. #Quote by Himmilicious
Acceptance quotes by Nathaniel Branden
#38. If we have parents who raise us with love and respect; who allow us to experience consistent and benevolent acceptance; who give us the supporting structure of reasonable rules and appropriate expectations; who do not assail us with contradictions; who do not resort to ridicule, humiliation, or physical abuse as means of controlling us; who project that they believe in our competence and goodness - we have a decent chance of internalizing their attitudes and thereby of acquiring the foundation for healthy self-esteem. #Quote by Nathaniel Branden
Acceptance quotes by Meraaqi
#39. I want to
peel away all the labels
I had once given to others
and place them
upon the fabric
of my own identity.

They have reflected back to me,
everything that I refuse
to See in myself. #Quote by Meraaqi
Acceptance quotes by Nikki Rowe
#40. I find myself enjoying being alone a lot of the time, people come and people go and you have to find a way to be ok with both. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Acceptance quotes by Graeme Simsion
#41. If you really love someone,' Claudia continued, 'you have to be prepared to accept them as they are. Maybe you hope that one day they get a wake-up call and make the changes for their own reasons. #Quote by Graeme Simsion
Acceptance quotes by John O'Donohue
#42. If you live in this world with kindness, if you don't add to other people's burdens, but if you try to serve love, when the time comes for you to make the journey, you will receive a serenity, peace and a welcoming freedom that will enable you to go to the other world with great elegance, grace and acceptance. #Quote by John O'Donohue
Acceptance quotes by Apple Blossom
#43. The power of beauty
Lies within our soul
And how we choose
To see everything
It is not found from
The strokes of a make-up brush
Nor the acceptance from others #Quote by Apple Blossom
Acceptance quotes by Claudia Acevedo
#44. When a person is connected to its true essence, there is nothing more rewarding than continuously developing it; there is no money that can buy the pleasure of putting into practice the talents each person has. #Quote by Claudia Acevedo
Acceptance quotes by Harshita Gottipati
#45. The true dwellers help you embrace
the darkness in yourself and wield it at will.
It is never belittling but empowering. #Quote by Harshita Gottipati
Acceptance quotes by Gregory Boyle
#46. Everyone is just looking to be told that who he or she is is right and true and wholly acceptable. No need to tinker and tweak. Exactly right. #Quote by Gregory Boyle
Acceptance quotes by Epictetus
#47. Many people who have progressively lowered their personal standards in an attempt to win social acceptance and life's comforts bitterly resent those of philosophical bent who refuse to compromise their spiritual ideals and who seek to better themselves. #Quote by Epictetus
Acceptance quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#48. She would always love him. But she would not cease to function because he was gone #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Acceptance quotes by Max Horkheimer
#49. The pathfinders of modern thought did not derive what is good from the law ... Their role in history was not that of adapting their words and actions to the text of old documents or generally accepted doctrines: they themselves created the documents and brought about the acceptance of their doctrines. #Quote by Max Horkheimer
Acceptance quotes by Ashly Lorenzana
#50. When you want to share something with another person more than anything, it is one of the most difficult things to realize that you can never have it. Accepting this realization is even more difficult. Loving someone does mean saying goodbye to them in some cases, though we will fight that until the oftentimes bitter end before doing the right thing. #Quote by Ashly Lorenzana
Acceptance quotes by Saurabh Sharma
#51. What is a truth and what is a lie? Is truth the mutually accepted part of a lie, or is lie a mutually denied part of truth? #Quote by Saurabh Sharma
Acceptance quotes by AngstGoddess003
#52. ...we'd be okay. Not perfect, not entirely healthy, not even rational where our love for one another was concerned. Just okay. Merely sufficient, at best. But there'd be only acceptance - never shame - in being two divine failures as we emerged from slumber, perfectly flawed, and wide awake. #Quote by AngstGoddess003
Acceptance quotes by Robert Ludlum
#53. Before taking her into the library, my wife told me she was an old friend in a marriage crisis. A fatuous lie; at her age there are no crises left in marriage, only acceptance and extraction. (General Villiers) #Quote by Robert Ludlum
Acceptance quotes by Derek Rydall
#54. An ancient statement declares that "God is no respecter of persons." What this means at the mystical level is that Spirit/The Universe doesn't know or see separate "people" any more than the sun sees separate sunbeams, the ocean recognizes separate waves, or a tree views the branches as separate from each other. All of Life is a unity, expressing fully at every point in the universe. Nowhere is it more or less. Nowhere is it withholding anything. In other words, the only thing blocking your good is your lack of acceptance. #Quote by Derek Rydall
Acceptance quotes by If I Wake
#55. Acceptance brings calmness with it. #Quote by If I Wake
Acceptance quotes by Brent Weeks
#56. He kissed her. And she kissed him. And it was infatuation, and it was hunger, and it was longing to be loved, and it was an all-consuming fire so hot it devoured worry and loneliness and fear and time and being and thought itself. They kissed, embracing, flying, and for a hundred heartbeats, there was no war, no death, no pain, nothing hard, nothing terrible, nothing but warmth and acceptance. #Quote by Brent Weeks
Acceptance quotes by Linda Gordon
#57. The acceptability of birth control has always depended on a morality that separates sex from reproduction. In the nineteenth century, when the birth control movement began, such a separation was widely considered immoral. The eventual widespread public acceptance of birth control required a major reorientation of sexual values. #Quote by Linda Gordon
Acceptance quotes by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
#58. We expect more of ourselves than we have any right to. #Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Acceptance quotes by Aaron Lauritsen
#59. When you compete, you gain more than you lose, even when you lose. #Quote by Aaron Lauritsen
Acceptance quotes by Stephen Levine
#60. How soon will we accept this opportunity to be fully alive before we die? (88) #Quote by Stephen Levine
Acceptance quotes by Marie Bashkirtseff
#61. I long to see everything, to know everything, to learn everything!. #Quote by Marie Bashkirtseff
Acceptance quotes by Alice Jamieson
#62. One weekend it rained for 48 hours without stopping. The rain beat like bony fingers against the window panes. Tap. Tap. Tap. Tap. Tap. Fungus was growing on the walls. I polished off a bottle of gin sitting huddled over the two-bar electric fire and wrote a poem, one of the few that has lasted through the moves and the years. It is called 'Where Can I Go?'
If this is not the place where tears are understood where do I go to cry?
If this is not the place where my spirits can take wing where do I go to fly?
If this is not the place where my feelings can be heard where do I go to speak?
If this is not the place where you'll accept me as I am where can I go to be me?
If this is not the place where I can try and learn and grow where can I go to laugh and cry? #Quote by Alice Jamieson
Acceptance quotes by George S. Clason
#63. Wise are thy words, my friend," responded the buyer. "Good luck fled from procrastination in both these tales. Yet, this is not unusual. The spirit of procrastination is within all men. We desire riches; yet, how often when opportunity doth appear before us, that spirit of procrastination from within doth urge various delays in our acceptance. In listening to it we do become our own worst enemies. #Quote by George S. Clason
Acceptance quotes by James T. Hubbell
#64. The artist's role is to do what is honest for them. So if you're in New York and everyone is looking at the floor, you can look up. It's not your role to follow the others. It's your role to go to your centre and then reflect that, not just to be a mirror to what's happening. #Quote by James T. Hubbell
Acceptance quotes by Thomas Merton
#65. We must be willing to accept the bitter truth that, in the end, we may have to become a burden to those who love us. But it is necessary that we face this also. The full acceptance of our abjection and uselessness is the virtue that can make us and others rich in the grace of God. It takes heroic charity and humility to let others sustain us when we are absolutely incapable of sustaining ourselves. We cannot suffer well unless we see Christ everywhere, both in suffering and in the charity of those who come to the aid of our affliction. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Acceptance quotes by Johnnie Dent Jr.
#66. When you don't fit in, be sure to stand out. #Quote by Johnnie Dent Jr.
Acceptance quotes by Stanley Coren
#67. From the dog's viewpoint, however, they are directly asserting dominance with that stare. When you respond by giving him what he wants, the dog interprets this as a submissive gesture on your part, and also reads this as your acceptance that the dog has a higher status in the pack than you do. #Quote by Stanley Coren
Acceptance quotes by Jed Diamond
#68. Parents and therapists offer unconditional love without needing it to be returned, yet both sides grow in love, understanding, and acceptance. #Quote by Jed Diamond
Acceptance quotes by Alain De Botton
#69. We are never through with the requirement for acceptance. This isn't a curse limited to the inadequate and the weak. Insecurity may even be a peculiar sign of well-being. It means we haven't allowed ourselves to take other people for granted, that we remain realistic enough to see that things could genuinely turn out badly and that we are invested enough to care. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Acceptance quotes by Debasish Mridha
#70. The secret of happiness is unconditional acceptance. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Acceptance quotes by Jarod Kintz
#71. I won an Oscar. I Won it in a raffle. It's a replica, but I still gave a teary-eyed acceptance speech. I thanked your mom for being so supportive (she's got a back like a dining room table). #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Acceptance quotes by R.J. Intindola
#72. The environment around us is constantly changing, including innovations, friends, employment and moving to a different location; those who accept and excel at adaptation have smoother transitions, while others struggle. #Quote by R.J. Intindola
Acceptance quotes by T. Scott McLeod
#73. Hatred never ceases with hatred, but with love alone is healed. #Quote by T. Scott McLeod
Acceptance quotes by Stuart Chase
#74. Attitude is your acceptance of the natural laws, or your rejection of the natural laws. #Quote by Stuart Chase
Acceptance quotes by Timothy Keller
#75. To pray in Jesus' name means to come to God in prayer consciously trusting in Christ for our salvation and acceptance and not relying on our own credibility or record. It is, essentially, to reground our relationship with God in the saving work of Jesus over and over again. It also means to recognize your status as a child of God, regardless of your inner state. God our Father is committed to his children's good, as any good father would be. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Acceptance quotes by Bryant McGill
#76. The acceptable is unacceptable. The truth is a lie. The good is pure evil. Even freedom has become a prison. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Acceptance quotes by Deepak Chopra
#77. I will practice acceptance. Today I will accept people, situations, circumstances, and events as they occur. I will know that this moment is as it should be, because the whole universe is as it should be. I will not struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment. My acceptance is total and complete. I accept things as they are this moment, not as I wish they were. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Acceptance quotes by Neil T. Anderson
#78. We don't serve God to gain His acceptance; we are accepted so we serve God. We don't follow Him in order to be loved; we are loved so we follow Him. #Quote by Neil T. Anderson
Acceptance quotes by Epicurus
#79. The conquest of fear, especially fear of unaccountable divine beings who meddle in nature at will, means a reduction in the sum total of human pain and suffering and opens the door to the calm acceptance of a new picture of the world - a world in which nature is autonomous and where there are ideal beings who never meddle. #Quote by Epicurus
Acceptance quotes by Kelly Martin
#80. Your outer world mirrors your inner world. How you view your outer world is how you view you, your inner world, the 'you' that needs your care, your attention, your compassion and your love. #Quote by Kelly Martin
Acceptance quotes by Kenneth A. Kitchen
#81. No theory can be sacrosanct, and widespread acceptance of a theory does not guarantee its truth. #Quote by Kenneth A. Kitchen
Acceptance quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#82. Why do the X-Men need another girl telepath?" she asked. "This one has purple hair." "It's all so sexist." Park's eyes got wide. Well, sort of wide. Sometimes she wondered if the shape of his eyes affected how he saw things. That was probably the most racist question of all time. "The X-Men aren't sexist," he said, shaking his head. "They're a metaphor for acceptance; they've sworn to protect a world that hates and fears them." "Yeah," she said, "but - " "There's no but," he said, laughing. "But," Eleanor insisted, "the girls are all so stereotypically girly and passive. Half of them just think really hard. Like that's their superpower, thinking. And Shadowcat's power is even worse - she disappears. #Quote by Rainbow Rowell
Acceptance quotes by John Steinbeck
#83. Probably the hardest thing in the world for a man is the simple observation and acceptance of what is. Always we warp our pictures with what we hoped, expected, or were afraid of. In Russia we saw many things that did not agree with what we had expected, and for this reason it is very good to have photographs, because a camera has no preconceptions, it simply sets down what it sees. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Acceptance quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#84. The silence that accepts merit as the most natural thing in the world is the highest applause. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Acceptance quotes by Dave Horowitz
#85. Omigosh - I'm a squash! #Quote by Dave Horowitz
Acceptance quotes by Deepak Chopra
#86. A child raised with spiritual skills will be able to answer the most basic questions about how the universe works; she will understand the source of creativity both within and outside herself; she will be able to practice nonjudgment, acceptance, and truth, which are the most valuable skills anyone can possess for dealing with other people; and she will be free from the crippling fear and anxiety about the meaning of life that is the secret dry rot inside the hearts of most adults, whether they can admit it or not. The deepest nurturing you can give your child is spiritual nurturing. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Acceptance quotes by Otto Rank
#87. Man works primarily for his own self-respect and not for others or for profit ... the person who is working for the sake of his own satisfaction, the money he gets in return serves merely as fuel, that is, as a symbol of reward and recognition, in the last analysis, of acceptance by ones fellowmen. #Quote by Otto Rank
Acceptance quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#88. If we would build on a sure foundation in friendship, we must love our friends for their sakes rather than for our own. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Acceptance quotes by Richard North Patterson
#89. labeled, "high school for the rich and vapid." "'If you want a friend,' he admonished me, 'don't choose the insecure, the envious, or the needy. They're the ones who will sell you out. Those you can trust are confident and secure, men and women who like their lives, and don't have to meet their needs at your expense. So no gossips, back stabbers, or celebrity fuckers. No one who has to tell you who they know, what they own, how important they are, or whose self-concept depends on the acceptance of others. The only people who can truly care about you are those who are sufficient unto themselves. #Quote by Richard North Patterson
Acceptance quotes by Gabor Mate
#90. To expect an addict to give up her drug is like asking the average person to imagine living without all her social skills, support networks, emotional stability and sense of physical and psychological comfort. Those are the qualities that, in their illusory and evanescent way, drugs give the addict. People like Serena and Celia and the others whose portraits have appeared in this book perceive their drugs as their "rock and salvation."

Thus, for all the valid reasons we have for wanting the addict to "just say no," we first need to offer her something to which she can say "yes." We must provide an island of relief. We have to demonstrate that esteem, acceptance, love and humane interaction are realities in this world, contrary to what she, the addict, has learned all her life. It is impossible to create that island for people unless they can feel secure that their substance dependency will be satisfied as long as they need it. #Quote by Gabor Mate
Acceptance quotes by Cassandra Clare
#91. And I think that you do not understand that sometimes the only choice is between acceptance and madness. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Acceptance quotes by Gojko Adzic

Acceptance quotes by E. M. Forster
#96. I swear from the bottom of my heart I want to be healed. I want to be like other men, not this outcast whom nobody wants. #Quote by E. M. Forster
Acceptance quotes by Pandurang Shastri Athavale
#97. Only he who accepts clashes and conflicts in life, loves life. #Quote by Pandurang Shastri Athavale
Acceptance quotes by Daphne Oz
#98. A wholesome family is one where there is a lot of love. It's living by example. It's acceptance of people at their core, but it's also pushing each other to be our best selves and try things we might not be good at. #Quote by Daphne Oz
Acceptance quotes by Sarah Ockler
#99. There's peace in acceptance. Death in it, always. Inevitable. With the acceptance of one thing comes the dying of another: a new belief, a relationship. An ideal, a plan, a what-if. Assumptions. A path. A song. #Quote by Sarah Ockler
Acceptance quotes by Roger Scruton
#100. Here we should notice a peculiar fact: that there are movements which are both essentially involuntary and yet confined to persons - to creatures with a self-conscious perspective. Smiles and blushes are the two most prominent examples. Milton puts the point finely in Paradise Lost:
for smiles from Reason flow,
To brute denied, and are of love the food.

These physiognomic movements owe their rich intentionality to this involuntary character, for it is this which suggests that they show the other 'as he really is'. Hence they become the pivot and focus of our interpersonal responses, and of no response more than sexual desire. The voluntary smile is not a smile at all, but a kind of grimace which, while it may have its own species of sincerity - as in the smile of Royalty, which as it were pays lip-service to good nature - is not esteemed as an expression of the soul. On the contrary, it is perceived as a mask, which conceals the 'real being' of the person who wears it. Smiling must be understood as a response to another person, to a thought or perception of his presence, and it has its own intentionality. To smile is to smile at something or someone, and hence when we see someone smiling in the street we think of him as 'smiling to himself, meaning that there is some hidden object of his present thought and feeling.
The smile of love is a kind of intimate recognition and acceptance of the other's presence - an involuntary acknowledgement that h #Quote by Roger Scruton
Acceptance quotes by Jerry Bridges
#101. To live by grace is to live solely by the merit of Jesus Christ. To live by grace is to base my entire relationship with God, including my acceptance and standing with Him, on my union with Christ. #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Acceptance quotes by David Allen
#102. It is a tricky business to know when you should set goals and objectives in order to achieve a focus, and when you would be better off dealing with the acceptance and management of your current reality so you can later step into new directions and responsibilities with greater stability and clarity. Only you will know the answer to that, and only in the moment. #Quote by David Allen
Acceptance quotes by Ramesh Lohia
#103. Each rejection brings us closer to acceptance. #Quote by Ramesh Lohia
Acceptance quotes by J.D. Greear
#104. My identity and my security are not in my spiritual progress. My identity and my security are in God's acceptance of me given as a gift in Christ. #Quote by J.D. Greear
Acceptance quotes by Auliq Ice

Acceptance quotes by Ricky Martin

Acceptance quotes by Marianne Williamson
#107. The ego seeks intimacy through control and guilt. The Holy Spirit seeks intimacy through acceptance and release. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Acceptance quotes by Cal Thomas
#108. No child is taught to kill, but he has to be taught to love, respect, honor and value, not only his own life, but the lives of his classmates, parents and teachers. He has to experience love and acceptance. He has to know his life has purpose and meaning. No amount of money can do that. #Quote by Cal Thomas
Acceptance quotes by Kelly G. Wilson
#109. Learning to sit with ambiguity can be a very important start at a life liberated from anxiety - and the way to do it is to resist the urge to chase answers to questions that may actually be unanswerable. #Quote by Kelly G. Wilson
Acceptance quotes by Elisabeth Elliot
#110. We are women, and my plea is Let me be a woman, holy through and through, asking for nothing but what God wants to give me, receiving with both hands and with all my heart whatever that is. #Quote by Elisabeth Elliot
Acceptance quotes by J.D. Greear
#111. Abiding in Jesus means understanding that His acceptance of us is the same regardless of the amount of spiritual fruit we have produced. #Quote by J.D. Greear
Acceptance quotes by Thomas Merton
#112. We thank Him less by words than by the serene happiness of silent acceptance. It is our emptiness in the presence of His reality, our silence in the presence of His infinitely rich silence, our joy in the bosom of the serene darkness in which His light holds us absorbed, it is all this that praises Him. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Acceptance quotes by Rob Liano
#113. If we all desire love and acceptance, shouldn't we love and accept all others? #Quote by Rob Liano
Acceptance quotes by Kristin Kimball
#114. Everything ends. The natural order of things is immutable. Seed, flower, fruit, decline, death, decay. Seed. Each stage has its own drama and its own particular beauty. If you can see it, you can accept it. The parts are graceful, and so is the whole. #Quote by Kristin Kimball
Acceptance quotes by Tyler Oakley
#115. The Internet is accelerating the speed of acceptance and social justice. #Quote by Tyler Oakley
Acceptance quotes by George Eliot
#116. It is, I fear, but a vain show of fulfilling the heathen precept, 'Know thyself,' and too often leads to a self- estimate which will subsist in the absence of that fruit by which alone the quality of the tree is made evident. #Quote by George Eliot
Acceptance quotes by Ann Voskamp
#117. We only enter into the full life if our faith gives thanks. Because how else do we accept His free gift of salvation if not with thanksgiving? Thanksgiving is the evidence of our acceptance of whatever He gives. Thanksgiving is the manifestation of our Yes! to His grace. #Quote by Ann Voskamp
Acceptance quotes by Byron Katie
#118. Do you want to be right more than you want to know the truth? It's the truth that set me free. Acceptance, peace, and less attachment to a world of suffering are all effects of doing The Work. They're not the goals. Do The Work for the love of freedom, for the love of truth. #Quote by Byron Katie
Acceptance quotes by Robert Frost
#119. Ah, when to the heart of man Was it ever less than a treason To go with the drift of things, To yield with a grace to reason, And bow and accept the end Of a love or a season? #Quote by Robert Frost
Acceptance quotes by Gerald G. Jampolsky
#120. Peace of mind comes from not wanting to change others. #Quote by Gerald G. Jampolsky
Acceptance quotes by Nanette Mathews
#121. When you realize your life isn't heading in the direction you wish, rather than wasting time complaining about the situation, just focus on the direction you wish to proceed with determination. #Quote by Nanette Mathews
Acceptance quotes by Adela Florence Nicolson
#122. For this is wisdom: to live, to take what fate, or the Gods, may give. #Quote by Adela Florence Nicolson
Acceptance quotes by Barbara Brennan
#123. To feel grateful is one of the most important experiences we need as humans. When we feel it, there is an acceptance of everything in our life. #Quote by Barbara Brennan
Acceptance quotes by Pope Francis
#124. When a person begins to recognize the sickness in their soul, when the Holy Spirit - the Grace of God - acts within them and moves their heart toward an initial recognition of their own sins, he needs to find an open door, not a closed one. He needs to find acceptance, not judgment, prejudice, or condemnation. He needs to be helped, not pushed away or cast out. Sometimes, when Christians think like scholars of the law, their hearts extinguish that which the Holy Spirit lights up in the heart of a sinner when he stands at the threshold, when he starts to feel nostalgia for God. #Quote by Pope Francis
Acceptance quotes by Scott Heim
#125. The girl was holding out her hand, but I could only give a pathetic shrug. I had nothing to give her. I'd finally faded away. #Quote by Scott Heim
Acceptance quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#126. We must each ascertain our own way to quantify the world. We can choose to peer at life harshly or benevolently. The prism that we select to view the world ultimately is the same standard that we employ to judge ourselves. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Acceptance quotes by Eric Hoffer
#127. To find the cause of our ills in something outside ourselves, something specific that can be spotted and eliminated, is a diagnosis that cannot fail to appeal. To say that the cause of our troubles is not in us but in the Jews , and pass immediately to the extermination of the Jews, is a prescription likely to find a wide acceptance. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Acceptance quotes by Bertrand Russell
#128. Passive acceptance of the teacher's wisdom is easy to most boys and girls. It involves no effort of independent thought, and seems rational because the teacher knows more than his pupils; it is moreover the way to win the favour of the teacher unless he is a very exceptional man. Yet the habit of passive acceptance is a disastrous one in later life. It causes man to seek and to accept a leader, and to accept as a leader whoever is established in that position. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Acceptance quotes by Deepak Chopra
#129. If you can accept the flow of life and give in to it, you will be accepting what is real. Only when you accept what is real can you live with it in peace and happiness. The alternative is a struggle that will never end because it is a struggle with the unreal, with a mirage of life instead of life itself. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Acceptance quotes by Vicktor Alexander
#130. And lose my cock, balls and prostate? Are you kidding me? Honey, I'm still all man. I'm just a man with decoration, Tommy had explained before turning with a flounce and practically floating out of the room in his heels. #Quote by Vicktor Alexander
Acceptance quotes by Dean Acheson
#131. Controversial proposals, once accepted, soon become hallowed. #Quote by Dean Acheson
Acceptance quotes by Lauren Blakely
#132. Something breaks inside me. Something breaks beautifully … It's not the awareness of what I'm feeling. I'm not a stupid guy. I'm smart and I've known for weeks what's been happening. Instead, it's the acceptance of it, the surrender to it, to falling ridiculously in love again. #Quote by Lauren Blakely
Acceptance quotes by Fay Weldon

Acceptance quotes by Alpha Four
#134. No amount of insult can change the height or grandeur of the mountain, nor the length of time required to climb it. #Quote by Alpha Four
Acceptance quotes by Mark Driscoll
#135. In treadmill religion, we have to work hard and perform at a high level for God to take notice of us.
The problem with treadmill performance religion is that it leads to either pride or despair. If you keep the rules of your religious team, you become arrogant. Conversely if you fail to keep the rules of your religious team, you despair. Justifying grace gives us full assurance that God will love us no more if we perform well and love us no less if we perform poorly. By justifying grace, our acceptance before God and the grounds for our righteousness are solely Jesus' works of sinless living, substitutionary death, and bodily resurrection and therefore are not in any way contingent upon what we do or do not do. #Quote by Mark Driscoll
Acceptance quotes by Sourav Adhikari
#136. Acceptance, Breathtaking performance, clarity in vision, beyond imagination thinking are the factors to success. #Quote by Sourav Adhikari
Acceptance quotes by Timothy Keller
#137. Whatever controls us really is our god ... The person who seeks power is controlled by power. The person who seeks acceptance is controlled by the people he or she wants to please. We do not control ourselves. We are controlled by the lord of our life. (Rebecca Manley Pippert, #Quote by Timothy Keller
Acceptance quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#138. There is no way to genuinely, powerfully, truly love yourself while crafting a mask of perfection. I know, you know, we all know - it's hard to let your pimples and your flaws be seen. It's hard to stumble and bumble. It's hard to not know the right things to do or say. It's hard to not look like TV.

Sometimes, it's really hard for me to be the awkward mess that I am when I'm authentic, instead of having runway authenticity - all natural, but flawless. But every time I allow that to be okay, not just around myself but around others - I affirm something to myself. I affirm, to myself more than anyone else, that I am lovable and acceptable unconditionally. I affirm that it's okay to take on and take in all the flavours and hues of human experience, and not just the ones that are acceptable in this culture, in this time, in this place.

And that kind of acceptance, that kind of love - that's the kind of love that creates miracles. That's the kind of love I really need. That's the kind of love that makes approval taste like cardboard. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Acceptance quotes by Augusten Burroughs
#139. Acceptance, when it comes, arrives in waves: Listen with your chest. You will feel a pendulum swing within you, favoring one direction or another. And that is your answer. The answer is always inside your chest. The right choice weighs more. That's how you know. It causes you to lean in its direction. #Quote by Augusten Burroughs
Acceptance quotes by Swami Dhyan Giten
#140. Awareness is a choiceless consciousness. Awareness is the capacity to embrace, accept and include both joy and sadness, love and aloneness, light and darkness, male and female qualities and life and death.
Through saying "yes" and accepting both tendencies and including whatever aspect that happens in the moment, we meet our unlimited and boundless inner being. The inner man and woman need to find their own independence and integrity. #Quote by Swami Dhyan Giten
Acceptance quotes by Nityananda Das
#141. To fully accept someone or something, means that you understand yourself enough to trust your own judgement and intuition, with this understanding full acceptance is inevitable and the next step possible. #Quote by Nityananda Das
Acceptance quotes by Robert Frost
#142. Always fall in with what you're asked to accept. Take what is given, and make it over your way. My aim in life has always been to hold my own with whatever's going. Not against: with. #Quote by Robert Frost
Acceptance quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#143. The dimension of space and time, represented by what is transpiring in the here and now, is all that we will ever know. Unlike the continuum of perpetual time and infinite space, everything that we know will experience disruption, dissolution, disintegration, dismemberment, and death. The inevitability of our ending represents the tragic comedy of life. Much of our needless suffering emanates from resisting our impermanence rather than embracing our fate. Only through acceptance of the events and situations that occur in a person's life including suffering, and by releasing our attachments, will a person ever experience enlightenment. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Acceptance quotes by Max Von Laue
#144. Notwithstanding these major arguments the wave theory initially did not meet with complete acceptance. #Quote by Max Von Laue
Acceptance quotes by Kyra Gregory
#145. Love is a feeling that is imposed on you. You cannot be lazy; it is up to you to make things work and make the best of it. #Quote by Kyra Gregory
Acceptance quotes by Auliq Ice
#146. With all the strength; Love encompasses compassion, determination, tolerance, endurance, support, faith and acceptance of whom you love. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Acceptance quotes by Ashley Mae Hoiland
#147. It is Christlike to assume that people are trying to do the best they can. I know I am a better person when I cultivate empathy, and I have been blessed for having received it from others. As members of the body of Christ, we are each responsible for creating a space not only of acceptance, but of joy and encouragement for our sisters and brothers and the stories they are working so hard to live well. #Quote by Ashley Mae Hoiland
Acceptance quotes by Sylvia Plath
#148. Winning or losing an argument, receiving an acceptance or rejection, is no proof of the validity or value of personal identity. One may be wrong, mistaken, or a poor craftsman, or just ignorant - but this is no indication of the true worth of one's total human identity: past, present and future! #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Acceptance quotes by Christine A. Courtois
#149. The act of consciously and purposefully paying attention to symptoms and their antecedents and consequences makes the symptoms more an objective target for thoughtful observation than an intolerable source of subjective anxiety, dysphoria, and frustration. In ACT, the act of accepting the symptoms as an expectable feature of a disorder or illness, has been shown to be associated with relief rather than increased distress (Hayes et al., 2006). From a traumatic stress perspective, any symptom can be reframed as an understandable, albeit unpleasant and difficult to cope with, reaction or survival skill (Ford, 2009b, 2009c). In this way, monitoring symptoms and their environmental or experiential/body state "triggers" can enhance client's willingness and ability to reflectively observe them without feeling overwhelmed, terrified, or powerless. This is not only beneficial for personal and life stabilization but is also essential to the successful processing of traumatic events and reactions that occur in the next phase of therapy (Ford & Russo, 2006). #Quote by Christine A. Courtois
Acceptance quotes by Rana Awdish
#150. you have a really hard job'... There was no judgement and no attribution of blame, only acceptance. It was such a simple validation, and yet for us, in those moments of risk and exposure, it was what we needed. #Quote by Rana Awdish
Acceptance quotes by Bob Hostetler
#151. Some of us have lived with those voices for so long that they sound like the truth. They sound like our own voice. They may even sound like God's voice. But they're not. God's voice speaks words of acceptance. Words that give. Words that restore. THE WORD THAT ACCEPTS The night before Jesus died, he gathered with his closest friends and followers in a borrowed banquet room in Jerusalem. There, in the #Quote by Bob Hostetler
Acceptance quotes by Bart Hopkins
#152. Families start out, most of the time, with unconditional acceptance of one another. That acceptance starts in childhood and continues into adulthood. Somewhere in there, between childhood and adulthood, the ability to distinguish right versus wrong is born. #Quote by Bart Hopkins
Acceptance quotes by A. D. Coleman
#153. The battle for the acceptance of photography as Art was not only counter-productive but counter-revolutionary. The most important photography is most emphatically not Art. #Quote by A. D. Coleman
Acceptance quotes by Louise Nevelson
#154. "But when I fell in love with black, it contained all color. It wasn't a negation of color. It was an acceptance. Because black encompasses all colors. Black is the most aristocratic color of all ... You can be quiet and it contains the whole thing."
Happy birthday to Louise Nevelson (1899-1988)! #Quote by Louise Nevelson
Acceptance quotes by Judith Hanson Lasater
#155. To cultivate empathy means to see the world through the eyes of another without judgement, without trying to "fix" it, without needing it to be different. It is acceptance independent of agreement, understanding without any implied coercion for oneself or the other to change. There is also no sense of wanting to "educate" the other person about how their perspective is wrong and ours is right. #Quote by Judith Hanson Lasater
Acceptance quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#156. A happy person is not without sorrow or grief. Happiness is the acceptance of pain, not the lack of it. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Acceptance quotes by Richard Carlson
#157. We deny the parts of ourselves that we deem unacceptable rather than accepting the fact that we're all less than perfect. #Quote by Richard Carlson
Acceptance quotes by Danielle Keopke
#158. When you find yourself drowning in self-hate, you have to remind yourself that you weren't born feeling this way. That at some point in your journey, some person or experience sent you the message that there was something wrong with who you are, and you internalized those messages and took them on as your truth. But that hate isn't yours to carry, and those judgments aren't about you. And in the same way that you learned to think badly of yourself, you can learn to think new, self-loving and accepting thoughts. You can learn to challenge those beliefs, take away their power, and reclaim your own. It won't be easy, and it won't happen over night. But it is possible. And it starts when you decide that there has to be more to life than this pain you feel. It starts when you decide that you deserve to discover it. #Quote by Danielle Keopke

Acceptance quotes by Pepper Winters
#160. I let him hold me. I let him shake and shudder. Time held no meaning as we existed in each other's embrace and fed each other with love and togetherness. I would hold him for the rest of my life and ensure he never felt anything but acceptance, adoration, and unconditional love. #Quote by Pepper Winters
Acceptance quotes by C.L. Wilson
#161. His sigh spoke of fear and regret mingled with grim acceptance. 'Teach her,' he said. 'Teach her to fight. Teach her to defend herself, and teach her to kill. The five of you must be her chatoks in the Dance of Knives. Teach her as you have taught no other. Give her everything. Hold nothing back.'
'Rain ... ' Bel murmured, his eyes troubled.
Rain waved off his unspoken objection. ' She is a Tairen Soul, and we Tairen Souls were born for war. I may not like this path the gods have set before her, but Farsight is right. I must do everything in my power to ensure she is prepared to walk it' ... #Quote by C.L. Wilson

Acceptance quotes by Victoria Moran

Acceptance quotes by Tara Brach
#165. We are mindful of desire when we experience it with an embodied awareness, recognizing the sensations and thoughts of wanting as arising and passing phenomena. While this isn't easy, as we cultivate the clear seeing and compassion of Radical Acceptance, we discover we can open fully to this natural force, and remain free in its midst. #Quote by Tara Brach
Acceptance quotes by Michael Sheen
#166. Getting older is a struggle. I always feel that just under the surface of acceptance and enjoyment of the ageing process is a terrible hysteria just waiting to burst out. #Quote by Michael Sheen
Acceptance quotes by Dean Kamen
#167. I think in our lifetime, that level of acceptance of "well, we couldn't do any better," won't be tolerated. We're going to start to see individual therapies customized for individual patients, and it's going to change the way people get healthcare. #Quote by Dean Kamen
Acceptance quotes by Brent Jones

Acceptance quotes by You Yenn Teo

Acceptance quotes by Ugo Betti

Acceptance quotes by Thomas Merton
#171. There is a subtle but inescapable connection between the "sacred" attitude and the acceptance of one's in most self. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Acceptance quotes by Joseph Frank
#172. Years later, when Dostoevsky was reading the book of Job once again, he wrote his wife that it put him into such a state of "unhealthy rapture" that he almost cried. "It's a strange thing, Anya, this books is one of the first in my life which made an impression on me; I was then still almost a child." There is an allusion to this revelatory experience of the young boy in The Brothers Karamazov, where Zosima recalls being struck by a reading of the book of Job at the age of eight and feeling that "for the first time in my life I consciously received the seed of God's word in my heart" (9:287). This seed was one day to flower into the magnificent growth of Ivan Karamazov's passionate protest against God's injustice and the Legend of the Grand Inquisitor, but it also grew into Alyosha's submission to the awesomeness of the infinite before which Job too had once bowed his head, and into Zosima's teaching of the necessity for an ultimate faith in the goodness of God's mysterious wisdom. It is Dostoevsky's genius as a writer to have been able to feel (and to express) both these extremes of rejection and acceptance. While the tension of this polarity may have developed out of the ambivalence of Dostoevsky's psychodynamic relationship with his father, what is important is to see how early it was transposed and projected into the religious symbolism of the eternal problem of theodicy. #Quote by Joseph Frank
Acceptance quotes by Walt F.J. Goodridge
#173. Perfect health, long life and eternal youth are not the random genetic blessings of a chaotic or capricious universe, but natural birthrights that can be accessed through the mindful acceptance of simple truths, activated by the committed practice of proven activities, and sustained by advancement along a single known path. This is that path.
The Ageless Adept #Quote by Walt F.J. Goodridge
Acceptance quotes by Walter Cunningham
#174. In the 1980s a small group of individuals became concerned about the Earth's temperature and what it might do in the future. I hesitate to call them scientists because they have abandoned their scientific principals by which their guess about temperature increases and the cause could achieve scientific acceptance or rejection. #Quote by Walter Cunningham

Acceptance quotes by Bonnie Badenoch
#177. It wasn't that I gave up on her healing, but, as she continued to struggle to get in the door and actively needed her self-hatred to stay functional, I began to realize more deeply that her patterns had meaning and that it wasn't useful for me to predetermine what recovery might look like for her. #Quote by Bonnie Badenoch

Acceptance quotes by Marie Gottschalk
#179. Many of the pathologies that run through the carceral state also run through American politics today. They include the unwarranted reverence for nonpartisanship at all costs, the uncritical acceptance of neoliberalism in all aspects of public policy, the stranglehold that economic and financial interests exert on politics and policy-making, the growing political and economic disenfranchisement of wide swaths of the population, and the gross limitations of oppositional strategies formed primarily around identity-based politics. #Quote by Marie Gottschalk

Acceptance quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#186. Do not love half lovers
Do not entertain half friends
Do not indulge in works of the half talented
Do not live half a life
and do not die a half death
If you choose silence, then be silent
When you speak, do so until you are finished
Do not silence yourself to say something
And do not speak to be silent
If you accept, then express it bluntly
Do not mask it
If you refuse then be clear about it
for an ambiguous refusal is but a weak acceptance
Do not accept half a solution
Do not believe half truths
Do not dream half a dream
Do not fantasize about half hopes
Half a drink will not quench your thirst
Half a meal will not satiate your hunger
Half the way will get you no where
Half an idea will bear you no results
Your other half is not the one you love
It is you in another time yet in the same space
It is you when you are not
Half a life is a life you didn't live,
A word you have not said
A smile you postponed
A love you have not had
A friendship you did not know
To reach and not arrive
Work and not work
Attend only to be absent
What makes you a stranger to them closest to you
and they strangers to you
The half is a mere moment of inability
but you are able for you are not half a being
You are a whole that exists to live a life
not half a life #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Acceptance quotes by Liam Gillick
#187. People think that the art market is about opportunists and hedge-fund managers getting broken art, but what really happened is that there was a new configuration of bourgeois values in the U.S. and an acceptance among the bourgeoisie of contemporary art as an idea. I think that bourgeois people are horrible. #Quote by Liam Gillick
Acceptance quotes by Karpov Kinrade
#188. When we share in each other's grief and pain, we lighten it. Or maybe we just give each other permission to feel it fully and, through that act of acceptance, the grief becomes more bearable. Because, like the rain, tears too have an end. And with deep emotions, we are open to each other in unexpected ways. #Quote by Karpov Kinrade
Acceptance quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#189. Liberation is our continual and fresh acceptance of truth as the path of life set before us. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Acceptance quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#190. Leave your hair natural. Let your beard grow out. Leave the makeup in the bag. Wear comfortable clothes. Stop worrying so much about your looks and start looking around you. You have missed so much beauty trying to become beautiful. You have missed your own worth trying to become worthy. Let the mask break open. Let it lie on the floor. Let yourself be seen. Let yourself see. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Acceptance quotes by Emily P. Freeman
#191. It's no wonder we are so messed up when it comes to walking with God. In nearly every aspect of our existence, good performance equals good reward. Except not with him. A good thing turns bad when we perform to earn God's acceptance rather than simply receive it like a gift. #Quote by Emily P. Freeman
Acceptance quotes by Joseph Deitch
#192. That is the paradox of the human condition. If we humbly accept that our experience of reality is constrained, we immediately loosen the chains that bind us, and we begin to expand. #Quote by Joseph Deitch
Acceptance quotes by Yukio Mishima
#193. Pain, I came to feel, might well prove to be the sole proof of the persistence of consciousness within the flesh, the sole physical expression of consciousness. As my body acquired muscle, and in turn strength, there was gradually born within me a tendency towards the positive acceptance of pain, and my interest in physical suffering deepened. #Quote by Yukio Mishima
Acceptance quotes by Michele Bardsley
#194. Acceptance. We want someone to look at us, and really see us - our physical flaws, our personality quirks, our insecurities. And we want them to be okay with every square inch of who we are. We're always afraid we might be too needy or too much work. We put all these limitations on ourselves and our relationships because we're afraid that we're not really loved. That we're not really accepted. We hide little pieces of ourselves because we think that might be the one thing that finally drives away the person who's supposed to love us. #Quote by Michele Bardsley
Acceptance quotes by Margaret Atwood
#195. Now maybe I wouldn't do it, but I was a child then," said Oryx more softly. "Why are you so angry?"
"I don't buy it," said Jimmy. Where was her rage, how far down was it buried, what did he have to do to dig it up?
"You don't buy what?"
"Your whole fucking story. All this sweetness and acceptance and crap."
"If you don't want to buy that, Jimmy," said Oryx, looking at him tenderly, "what is it that you would like to buy instead?" (167) #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Acceptance quotes by Zhuangzi

Acceptance quotes by Leanne Payne
#197. If broken lives and souls are to be healed, it must begin with teaching the practice of the presence ... To abide in the presence of the Lord is to begin to hear Him. To follow through on that hearing is to find healing, self-acceptance, and growth into psychological and spiritual balance and maturity. #Quote by Leanne Payne
Acceptance quotes by Sarah McBride
#198. When you've never felt like you really belonged somewhere, it's almost impossible to know what it will feel like to finally feel at home. #Quote by Sarah McBride
Acceptance quotes by Scott Stabile
#199. When someone rejects you, for whatever reason, that rejection reflects their wants, not your limitations. you are in no way defined by the rejection, or the acceptance, of anyone else. your worth depends on no one. and as hard as it can be to see it as such, there is just as big a gift in not connecting with those who don't see your value, as there is in uniting with those who do. #Quote by Scott Stabile
Acceptance quotes by John Fowles
#200. It came to me ... that I didn't want to be anywhere else in the world at that moment, that what I was feeling at that moment justified all I had been through, because all I had been through was my being there. I was experiencing ... a new self-acceptance, a sense that I had to be this mind and this body, its vices and its virtues, and that I had no other chance or choice. #Quote by John Fowles
