Accidents quotes by Kimberly Giles
#1. Your life will always be the perfect classroom journey for you and every experience that shows up in your journey is here to serve you.

Your life matters and everything you experience matters. Your trials are there to help you become a better person and trusting this is truth will take some of the sting out of them. Suffering becomes more bearable if it at least counts for something. #Quote by Kimberly Giles
Accidents quotes by David Lynch
#2. You get all the puzzle parts together enough to say the puzzle is complete. It's a script. In the process of realizing that, new ideas can come, one way or another. Through a happy accident, they just come to you. #Quote by David Lynch
Accidents quotes by Louis De Bernieres
#3. Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don't blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being "in love", which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. #Quote by Louis De Bernieres
Accidents quotes by Chad A. Ripperger
#4. Prayer for Protection Against Curses, Harm and Accidents Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to protect my family from sickness, from all harm and from accidents. If any of us has been subjected to any curses, hexes or spells, I beg Thee to declare these curses, hexes or spells null and void. If any evil spirits have been sent against us, I ask Christ to decommission you and I ask that you be sent to the foot of His Cross to be dealt with as He will. Then, Lord, I ask Thee to send Thy holy Angels to guard and protect all of us. #Quote by Chad A. Ripperger
Accidents quotes by Francis Bacon
#5. My praise shall be dedicated to the mind itself. The mind is the man, and the knowledge is the mind. A man is but what he knoweth. The mind is but an accident to knowledge, for knowledge is the double of that which is. #Quote by Francis Bacon
Accidents quotes by Amos Bronson Alcott
#6. A friendship formed in childhood, in youth,
by happy accident at any stage of rising manhood,
becomes the genius that rules the rest of life. #Quote by Amos Bronson Alcott
Accidents quotes by Sogyal Rinpoche
#7. Switch on the television or glance at the newspaper: You will see death everywhere. Yet, did the victims of those plane crashes and car accidents expect to die? They took life for granted, as we do. How often do we hear stories of people whom we know, or even friends, who died unexpectedly? We don't even have to be ill to die: Our bodies can suddenly break down and go out of order, just like our cars. We can be quite well one day, then fall sick and die the next. #Quote by Sogyal Rinpoche
Accidents quotes by Greg Plitt
#8. You are what you do repeatedly every day. If excellence is something you're striving for, then it's not an accident. It's a habit. #Quote by Greg Plitt
Accidents quotes by Diana Trilling
#9. Privacy, after all, was the most relative of privileges. It was granted us by society under ungenerous conditions, the most fundamental of them that whether for pain or profit, by design or accident, we not call public attention to ourselves. #Quote by Diana Trilling
Accidents quotes by Andra Brynn
#10. And suddenly I think: nothing is fine. It's never fine. It's always an illusion. Happy smiles, assurances, jokes, laughter - there's no way to tell if it is real, or a mask. There's always something terrible hurtling toward you, something that will destroy all that you love and alter your life forever. You may not know it, but it's coming and there's nothing you can do. No amount of hammering, or holy water, or screaming will change that.
You can scream no, and stop, and please, you can reach out and try to bend fate to your will with your own two hands, but it has already been decided. In every moment, a thousand accidents wait to happen, already in place and poised to strike, and we don't even know it #Quote by Andra Brynn
Accidents quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#11. It takes two to make an accident. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Accidents quotes by Simon Sebag Montefiore
#12. Love was not thunderbolts but a meandering river, an accumulation of accidents, the momentum of details. #Quote by Simon Sebag Montefiore
Accidents quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#13. Dear Madam Vorsoisson, I am sorry.
This is the eleventh draft of this letter. They've all started with those three words, even the horrible version in rhyme, so I guess they stay.
You once asked me never to lie to you. All right, so. I'll tell you the truth now even if it isn't the best or cleverest thing, and not abject enough either.
I tried to be the thief of you, to ambush and take prisoner what I thought I could never earn or be given. You were not a ship to be hijacked, but I couldn't think of any other plan but subterfuge and surprise. Though not as much of a surprise as what happened at dinner. The revolution started prematurely because the idiot conspirator blew up his secret ammo dump and lit the sky with his intentions. Sometimes these accidents end in new nations, but more often they end badly, in hangings and beheadings. And people running into the night. I can't be sorry that I asked you to marry me, because that was the one true part in all the smoke and rubble, but I'm sick as hell that I asked you so badly.
Even though I'd kept my counsel from you, I should have at least had the courtesy to keep it from others as well, till you'd had the year of grace and rest you'd asked for. But I became terrified that you'd choose another first. So I used the garden as a ploy to get near you. I deliberately and consciously shaped your heart's desire into a trap. For this I am more than sorry, I am ashamed.
You'd earned every chance to grow. I'd lik #Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold
Accidents quotes by Sam Rayburn
#14. Readiness for opportunity makes for success. Opportunity often comes by accident; readiness never does. #Quote by Sam Rayburn
Accidents quotes by Charles Dickens
#15. There are chords in the human heart- strange, varying strings- which are only struck by accident; which will remain mute and senseless to appeals the most passionate and earnest, and respond at last to the slightest casual touch. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Accidents quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#16. Dear master, I think it would be better for each of us to watch ourself. To look after oneself means to look after both of us. That way I am sure we will avoid any accidents and will earn enough to eat.' " The Buddha said: "The child spoke correctly. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
Accidents quotes by John Irving
#17. Along the (writing) way accidents happen, detours get taken ... But these are not "divine" accidents; I don't believe in those. I believe you have constructive accidents en route through a novel only because you have mapped a clear way. If you have confidence that you have a clear direction to take, you always have confidence to explore other ways; if they prove to be mere digressions, you'll recognize that and make the necessary revisions. The more you know about a book, the freer you can be to fool around. The less you know, the tighter you get. #Quote by John Irving
Accidents quotes by Will Self
#18. In survey after survey, people report that the greatest dangers they face are, in this order: terrorist attack, plane crashes and nuclear accidents. This despite the fact that these three combined have killed fewer people in the past half-century than car accidents do in any given year. #Quote by Will Self
Accidents quotes by Scott Westerfeld
#19. (T)he real world worked differently than stories. In a novel you always knew the moment when something Happened, when someone Changed. But real life was full of gradual, piecemeal, continuous transformation. It was full of accidents and undefinables, and things that just happened on their own. #Quote by Scott Westerfeld
Accidents quotes by Vince Passaro
#20. I look back now with amazement at the small accidents that put certain books before me. #Quote by Vince Passaro
Accidents quotes by Joshua Harris
#21. Purity doesn't happen by accident; it requires obedience to God. #Quote by Joshua Harris
Accidents quotes by Billie Joe Armstrong
#22. When someone is in a car accident and they're driving at 100 mph, drunk, who's tape do you think his listening to at that time? Think about it. #Quote by Billie Joe Armstrong
Accidents quotes by Ansel Adams
#23. A photograph is not an accident - it is a concept. #Quote by Ansel Adams
Accidents quotes by Leonard Holton
#24. Facts are delusion," he said. "They are a delusion of truth as a mirage is a delusion of sight. The real facts lie in people's minds and not in fingerprints and books and photographs and all the other physical things which are only the accidents that occur as a result of what lies in the mind. Truth is a matter of the mind and all else is only a blurred shadow to reconstruct the original image. Bit it is the image we are searching for. #Quote by Leonard Holton
Accidents quotes by Odilon Redon
#25. I have often, as an exercise and as a sustenance, painted before an object down to the smallest accidents of its visual appearance; but the day left me sad and with an unsatiated thirst. The next day I let the other source run, that of imagination, through the recollection of the forms and I was then reassured and appeased. #Quote by Odilon Redon
Accidents quotes by Kristian Williams
#26. A total of 105 patrol officers died on the job in 2012. Less half of those (51) died as the result of violence, and another 48 died in traffic accidents. Between 1961 and 2012, 3,847 cops were murdered and 2,946 died in accidents - averaging about 75 murders and 58 fatal accidents in a typical year. Naturally it is not to be lost sight of that these numbers represent human lives, not widgets or sacks of potatoes. But let's also remember that there were 4,383 fatal work injuries in 2012. As dangerous professions go, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, policing is not even in the top ten. In terms of total fatalities, more truck drivers are killed than any other kind of worker (741 in 2012). A better measure of occupational risk, however, is the rate of work-related deaths per 100,000 workers. In 2012, for example, it was 17.4 for truck drivers. At 15.0 deaths per 100,000, policing is slightly less dangerous than being a maintenance worker (15.7) and slightly more dangerous than supervising the gardener (14.7). The highest rate of fatalities is among loggers at 127.8 per 100,000, just ahead of fishers at 117.0. The rate for all occupations, taken together, is 3.2 per 100,000 workers. Where are the headlines, the memorials, the honor guards, and the sorrowful renderings of Taps for these workers? Where are the mayoral speeches, the newspaper editorials, the sober reflections that these brave men and women died, and that others risk their lives daily, so that we might co #Quote by Kristian Williams
Accidents quotes by Raphael Soyer
#27. Every brush stroke has a certain tension, a certain nervousness. Every brush stroke is, in a sense, some kind of an accident. #Quote by Raphael Soyer
Accidents quotes by Kristen Ashley
#28. As a cop, he'd seen too many accidents so he was all for staid, sturdy cars that were built so tough you could drive them through a building and only have to buff out a few scratches. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Accidents quotes by James Surowiecki
#29. When all is said and done, cheap gas is an illusion, because our reliance on gas creates a whole series of costs that aren't factored in to the pump price - among them congestion, pollution, and increased risk of accidents. #Quote by James Surowiecki
Accidents quotes by Jeff VanderMeer
#30. Accidents and acts of God don't mean a thing, unless they're followed later by acts of will. #Quote by Jeff VanderMeer
Accidents quotes by Robert E. Slavin
#31. The principal reason that districts within states often differ markedly in per-pupil expenditures is that school funding is almost always tied to property taxes, which are in turn a direct function of local wealth. Having school funding depend on local wealth creates a situation in which poor districts must tax themselves far more heavily than wealthy ones, yet still may not be able to generate adequate income. For example, Baltimore City is one of the poorest jurisdictions in Maryland, and the Baltimore City Public Schools have the lowest per-pupil instructional expenses of any of Maryland's 24 districts. Yet Baltimore's property tax rate is twice that of the next highest jurisdiction.(FN2) Before the funding equity decision in New Jersey, the impoverished East Orange district had one of the highest tax rates in the state, but spent only $3,000 per pupil, one of the lowest per-pupil expenditures in the state.(FN3) A similar story could be told in almost any state in the U.S.(FN4) Funding formulas work systematically against children who happen to be located in high-poverty districts, but also reflect idiosyncratic local circumstances. For example, a factory closing can bankrupt a small school district. What sense does it make for children's education to suffer based on local accidents of geography or economics?
To my knowledge, the U.S. is the only nation to fund elementary and secondary education based on local wealth. Other developed countries either equalize funding #Quote by Robert E. Slavin
Accidents quotes by Chauncey Wright
#32. The accidental causes of science are only accidents relatively to the intelligence of a man. #Quote by Chauncey Wright
Accidents quotes by William Cecil Dampier
#33. Great discoveries are made accidentally less often than the populace likes to think.
(Commenting on how an accident led to the discovery of X-rays) #Quote by William Cecil Dampier
Accidents quotes by Molly Harper
#34. In a werewolf pack, you cannot interfere with the mate choice of a clan fellow. You cannot intentionally harm that werewolf's chosen mate. You are not, however, required to help that person should he find himself in a life - threatening situation.
Somehow, Zeb had managed to stumble into several such situations in the few months since he 'd been engaged to Jolene. He'd had several hunting "accidents" while visiting the McClaine farm, even though he didn't hunt. The brakes on his car had failed while he was driving home from the farm - twice. Also, a running chainsaw mysteriously fell on him from a hayloft.
He would never get that pinkie toe back. #Quote by Molly Harper
Accidents quotes by Lilli Palmer
#35. Facility is an obstacle to any creativeness. In any art form. You get a nice effect without effort, sometimes by accident, and you're satisfied; but there's nothing substantial underneath. #Quote by Lilli Palmer
Accidents quotes by Steve Maraboli
#36. With automobile accidents, mechanical failure is seldom the cause; and most often, operator error. I find the same to be true with corporate failings ... . the people are rarely the issue ... the shortcoming is most often found in the leadership. #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Accidents quotes by Aldous Huxley
#37. But if one doesn't really exist, one wonders why ... " she hesitated.
"Why one makes such a fuss about things," Anthony suggested. "All that howling and hurrahing and gnashing of teeth. About the adventures of a self that isn't really a self - just the result of a lot of accidents. And of course," he went on, "once you start wondering, you see at once that there is no reason for making such a fuss. And then you don't make a fuss - that is, if you're sensible. Like me," he added, smiling. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Accidents quotes by Emma Thompson
#38. The fire alarm went off. Fire engines came racing; we all rushed out on the gravel drive, everyone thinking it was us. In fact, one of the elderly residents of Saltram had left a pan on the oven in her flat. Apparently this happens all the time. The tenant in question is appearing as an extra
playing one of the cooks. #Quote by Emma Thompson
Accidents quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#39. Whenever nature leaves a hole in a person's mind, she generally plasters it over with a thick coat of self-conceit. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Accidents quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#40. Death is beautiful when seen to be a law, and not an accident. It is as common as life. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Accidents quotes by Thiruman Archunan
#41. Accident is nature's way of starting a design; design is a man's way of looking at the accidents. #Quote by Thiruman Archunan
Accidents quotes by Jared Diamond
#42. In short, Europe's colonization of Africa had nothing to do with differences between European and African peoples themselves, as white racists assume. Rather, it was due to accidents of geography and biogeography - in particular, to the continents' different areas, axes, and suites of wild plant and animal species. That is, the different historical trajectories of Africa and Europe stem ultimately from differences in real estate. #Quote by Jared Diamond
Accidents quotes by Julian Of Norwich
#43. And I saw that truly nothing happens by accident or luck, but everything by God's wise providence. If it seems to be accident or luck from our point of view, our blindness and lack of foreknowledge is the cause; for matters that have been in God's foreseeing wisdom since before time began befall us suddenly, all unawares; and so in our blindness and ignorance we say that this is accident or luck, but to our Lord God it is not so. #Quote by Julian Of Norwich
Accidents quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#44. Aunt Rosa, a fussy, angular, wild-eyed old lady, who had lived in a tremulous world of bad news, bankruptcies, train accidents, cancerous growths - until the Germans put her to death, together with all the people she had worried about. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Accidents quotes by Abbi Glines
#45. I think that everyone's life is controlled by a series of events. They choose what they want and if it is in their control they can reach it. Sometimes luck shines on them and sometimes it doesn't. I also think accidents happen and we are placed in situations where we have to do things for those we love that we don't want to do. #Quote by Abbi Glines
Accidents quotes by Helen Macdonald
#46. I couldn't keep the dimensions of my car in my head. Or my own, for I kept having accidents. I cracked cups. I dropped plates. Fell over. Broke a toe on a door-jamb. I was as clumsy as I had been as a child. But when I was busy with Mabel I was never clumsy. The world with the hawk in it was insulated from harm, and in that world I was exactly aware of all the edges of my skin. Every night I slept and dreamed of creances, of lines and knots, of skeins of wool, skeins of geese flying south. And every afternoon I walked out onto the pitch with relief, because when the hawk was on my first I knew who I was, and I was never angry with her, even if I wanted to sink to my knees and weep every time she tried to fly away. #Quote by Helen Macdonald
Accidents quotes by E. O. Wilson
#47. Real biologists who actually do the research will tell you that they almost never find a phenomenon, no matter how odd or irrelevant it looks when they first see it, that doesn't prove to serve a function. The outcome itself may be due to small accidents of evolution. #Quote by E. O. Wilson
Accidents quotes by Luol Deng
#48. They were just accidents. Luke said he was just testing my concussion. I'm not mad at him. #Quote by Luol Deng
Accidents quotes by Torkom Saraydarian
#49. There are three kinds of people and three kinds of richness:
- people who want to have, to collect
- people who want action, work and labor
- people who want to be
The real richness is in be-ness. People can take all that you have, all that you collected. People can stop your labor, or an accident can stop you. When you are, you never lose what you are. #Quote by Torkom Saraydarian
Accidents quotes by Ronald Reagan
#50. When a business or an individual spends more than it makes, it goes bankrupt. When government does it, it sends you the bill. And when government does it for 40 years, the bill comes in two ways: higher taxes and inflation. Make no mistake about it, inflation is a tax and not by accident. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Accidents quotes by Steven Weinberg
#51. It is almost irrestible for humans to believe that we have some special relation to the universe, that human life is not just a more-or-less farcical outcome of a chain of accidents reaching back to the first three minutes, but that we were somehow built in from the beginning. #Quote by Steven Weinberg
Accidents quotes by Robin Sacredfire
#52. Despite what you might think, NORMAL people do NOT cause problems, misfortunes, conflicts, distress or accidents. And when they do, they CAN apologize and recognize their negative influence. A person that causes these things and can't assume any responsibility for them is, apart from showing the cognitive and moral level of a child, deserving nothing more than abandonment, because she is dangerous at all levels and can hurt, or even kill, someone BY ACCIDENT, including herself and whoever is with her. A person like this DOES NOT deserve any TRUST for ANYTHING, ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING. #Quote by Robin Sacredfire
Accidents quotes by Marty Rubin
#53. When the train stays on the tracks you don't ask why. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Accidents quotes by Sebastian Thrun
#54. If we could do away with traffic accidents, that'd be wonderful. There'd be more than a million people saved every year on this planet. #Quote by Sebastian Thrun
Accidents quotes by John Updike
#55. The creative writer uses his life as well as being its victim; he can control, in his work, the self-presentation that in actuality is at the mercy of a thousand accidents. #Quote by John Updike
Accidents quotes by Anonymous
#56. In World War II, 35,933 AAF planes were lost in combat and accidents. The surprise of the attrition rate is that only a fraction of the ill-fated planes were lost in combat. #Quote by Anonymous
Accidents quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#57. I view the major features of my own odyssey as a set of mostly fortunate contingencies. I was not destined by inherited mentality or family tradition to become a paleontologist. I can locate no tradition for scientific or intellectual careers anywhere on either side of my eastern European Jewish background. [ ... ] I view my serious and lifelong commitment to baseball in entirely the same manner: purely as a contingent circumstance of numerous, albeit not entirely capricious, accidents. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Accidents quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#58. His life had seemed horrible when it was measured by its happiness, but now he seemed to gather strength as he realised that it might be measured by something else. Happiness mattered as little as pain. They came in, both of them, as all the other details of his life came in, to the elaboration of the design. He seemed for an instant to stand above the accidents of his existence, and he felt that they could not affect him again as they had done before. Whatever happened to him now would be one more motive to add to the complexity of the pattern, and when the end approached he would rejoice in its completion. It would be a work of art, and it would be none the less beautiful because he alone knew of its existence, and with his death it would at once cease to be.
Philip was happy. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Accidents quotes by Agatha Christie
#59. And yet," said Poirot, "suppose an accident-"
"Ah, no, my friend-"
"From your point of view it would be regrettable, I agree. But nevertheless let us just for one moment suppose it. Then, perhaps, all these here are linked together - by death. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Accidents quotes by Li Yizhong
#60. The number is less than that of 2004, but major fatal accidents have aroused considerable public discontent. #Quote by Li Yizhong
Accidents quotes by Morgan Harper Nichols
#61. When you start to feel like things should have been better this year, remember the mountains and valleys that got you here. They are not accidents, and those moments weren't in vain. You are not the same. You have grown and you are growing. You are breathing, you are living, you are wrapped in endless, boundless grace. And things will get better. There is more to you than yesterday. #Quote by Morgan Harper Nichols
Accidents quotes by Daniel D. Palmer
#62. Do not forget that chiropractors did not treat diseases. They adjust causes, whether acquired, spontaneous, or the result of accident. #Quote by Daniel D. Palmer
Accidents quotes by Jawaharlal Nehru
#63. By education I am an Englishman, by views an internationalist, by culture a Muslim & a Hindu only by accident of birth. #Quote by Jawaharlal Nehru
Accidents quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#64. I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Accidents quotes by Dan Simmons
#65. Meaning no disrespect, sir, but there's no way in the Good Lord's fucking universe that anyone can bar accidents or the unexpected. #Quote by Dan Simmons
Accidents quotes by John Negroponte
#66. It should be obvious that this pattern of systematic holes and gaps in Iraq's declaration is not the result of accidents, editing oversights or technical mistakes. These are material omissions that - in our view - constitute another material breach. It is up to Iraq to prove that there is some other explanation besides the obvious one, that this declaration is just one more act of deception in a history of lies from a defiant dictator. #Quote by John Negroponte
Accidents quotes by Novoneel Chakraborty
#67. People judge the unknown with their knowledge of the known.
Fear is the most prized illusion that we create for ourselves.
Human beings are designed in a way that they always live with one half of their self in the past and the other half in the present.
Love doesn't always happen to strengthen our beliefs. Sometimes it happens to destroy all our previous beliefs and faith and gives us a chance to re-look at our own conclusions.
We all are designed to remember things. So, if you try to forget, you will suffer. Accept and you shall shine like never before. The greatest lesson love can give you is how to live a complete life by accepting its incomplete ways. If you can't hope in love, you can't live.
Accidents happen Mini but that doesn't mean you stop travelling.
Sometimes we confuse need and necessity, I guess. Necessity is common to all but need is person-specific.
What to do when you are in love with the journey but at the same time scared of the undesirable destination which you know is going to arrive sooner or later?
Sometimes we lie not to cover the truth but to cover that side of us which the truth may strip to bareness. #Quote by Novoneel Chakraborty
Accidents quotes by Frederick Sommer
#68. Art is not arbitrary. A fine painting is not there by accident; it is not arrived at by chance. We are sensitive to tonalities. #Quote by Frederick Sommer
Accidents quotes by Jay Leno
#69. Corporations complained about [safety] regulations, but let's face it, people walk away from accidents now that would have killed them when I was a kid #Quote by Jay Leno
Accidents quotes by Eiji Yoshikawa
#70. It does happen, of course, that the priesthood has been on bad terms with womankind for some three thousand years. You see, Buddhism teaches that women are evil. Fiends. Messengers of hell. I've spent years immersed in the scriptures, so it's no accident that you and I fight all the time. #Quote by Eiji Yoshikawa
Accidents quotes by Tyrone Power
#71. Some day I will show all the [people] who say I was a success just because of my pretty face. Sometimes I wish I had a really bad car accident so my face would get smashed up and I'd look like Eddie Constantine. #Quote by Tyrone Power
Accidents quotes by Francis Bacon
#72. It cannot be denied that outward accidents conduce much to fortune, favor, opportunity, death of others, occasion fitting virtue; but chiefly, the mold of a man's fortune is in his own hands #Quote by Francis Bacon
Accidents quotes by John Stott
#73. An unchurched christian is a grotesque anomaly. The New Testament knows nothing of such a person. For the church lies at the very center of the eternal purpose of God. It is not a divine afterthought. It is not an accident of history. On the contrary, the church is God's new community. #Quote by John Stott
Accidents quotes by Steve Goodier
#74. Unexpected and pleasant surprises occur every day...random kindnesses from a stranger; would-be tragic accidents narrowly avoided; sicknesses healed.... We will notice if we look. We will see good sprinkled liberally over every day if we are open. #Quote by Steve Goodier
Accidents quotes by Rick Warren
#75. Because God is sovereignly in control, accidents are just incidents in God's good plan for you. #Quote by Rick Warren
Accidents quotes by Albert Camus
#76. There are accidents that last the whole life. #Quote by Albert Camus
Accidents quotes by Wayne Muller
#77. If we do not allow for a rhythm of rest in our overly busy lives, illness becomes our Sabbath - our pneumonia, our cancer, our heart attack, our accidents create Sabbath for us. #Quote by Wayne Muller

#79. You didn't just show up on planet Earth by accident.. You were handpicked by Almighty God. #Quote by Joel Osteen
Accidents quotes by Jurgen Habermas
#80. Since our complex societies are highly susceptible to interferences and accidents, they certainly offer ideal opportunities for a prompt disruption of normal activities. #Quote by Jurgen Habermas
Accidents quotes by Hermann Weyl
#81. The constructs of the mathematical mind are at the same time free and necessary. The individual mathematician feels free to define his notions and set up his axioms as he pleases. But the question is will he get his fellow mathematician interested in the constructs of his imagination. We cannot help the feeling that certain mathematical structures which have evolved through the combined efforts of the mathematical community bear the stamp of a necessity not affected by the accidents of their historical birth. #Quote by Hermann Weyl
Accidents quotes by Billy Ray Cyrus
#82. I don't think there's any accidents in my life. #Quote by Billy Ray Cyrus
Accidents quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#83. Jesus changes our history from a random series of sad incidents and accidents into a constant opportunity for a change of heart. #Quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen
Accidents quotes by Mark Rosenker
#84. The increase in accidents is disappointing. But the decrease in total fatalities is a hopeful sign. #Quote by Mark Rosenker
Accidents quotes by Augustine Of Hippo
#85. Further, all men are to be loved equally. But since you cannot do good to all, you are to pay special regard to those who, by the accidents of time, or place, or circumstance, are brought into closer connection with you. For, suppose that you had a great deal of some commodity, and felt bound to give it away to somebody who had none, and that it could not be given to more than one person; if two persons presented themselves, neither of whom had either from need or relationship a greater claim upon you than the other, you could do nothing fairer than choose by lot to which you would give what could not be given to both. Just so among men: since you cannot consult for the good of them all, you must take the matter as decided for you by a sort of lot, according as each man happens for the time being to be more closely connected with you.
Book 1, Chapter 28 - How we are to decide whom to aid #Quote by Augustine Of Hippo
Accidents quotes by Phyllis Rose
#86. These aren't accidents. They are significant choices, like the choice of a totemic animal: something in your spirit aligns with theirs. #Quote by Phyllis Rose
Accidents quotes by Alice Sebold
#87. My father had not been outside the house except to drive back and forth to work or sit out in the backyard, for months, nor had he seen his neighbors. Now he looked at them, from face to face, until he realized I had been loved by people he didn't even recognize. His heart filled up, warm again as it had not been in what seemed so long to him- save small forgotten moments with Buckley, the accidents of love that happened with his son.

~pgs 209-210; Buckley, Lindsey and Jack on Susie #Quote by Alice Sebold
Accidents quotes by Dennis C. Blair
#88. There are many causes of violent deaths in America - murders and traffic accidents - that we do not approach with the same 'no price too steep, no task too difficult' approach that we take toward al Qaeda. #Quote by Dennis C. Blair
Accidents quotes by Tim Field
#89. Whilst accidents and assaults injure and kill people quickly and spectacularly, bullying and consequent prolonged negative stress injure and kill people slowly and secretively. The outcome, though, is the same. #Quote by Tim Field
Accidents quotes by Thucydides
#90. The longer a war lasts, the more things tend to depend on accidents. Neither you nor we can see into them: We have to abide their outcome in the dark. #Quote by Thucydides
Accidents quotes by Zadie Smith
#91. He asked questions, he was interested and interesting, he rarely spoke of himself. He had a calm voice for the worst accidents and emergencies. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Accidents quotes by Eva Mendes
#93. I might act like it's an accident but the opposite is true. I'm incredibly calculated when it comes to my career. #Quote by Eva Mendes
Accidents quotes by Bernard Lietaer
#94. Our [American] money system is structurally brittle. It doesn't matter if you put a very clever guy or a stupid guy at the wheel. The clever guy will take a half hour to have an accident, and the stupid guy will take ten minutes. #Quote by Bernard Lietaer
Accidents quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#95. Mindful living is an art. You do not have to be a monk or living in a monastery to practice mindfulness. You can practice it anytime, while driving your car or doing housework. Driving in mindfulness will make the time in your car joyful, and it will also help you avoid accidents. You can use the red traffic light as a signal of mindfulness, reminding you to stop and enjoy your breathing. Similarly, when you do the dishes after dinner you can practice mindful breathing, so the time dish washing is pleasant and meaningful. You do not feel you have to rush. If you hurry, you waste the time of dish washing. The time you spend washing dishes and doing all your other everyday tasks is precious. It is a time for being alive. When you practice mindful living, peace will bloom during your daily activities. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
Accidents quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#96. I came to Party Crashing because accidents happen. People you love will die. Nothing you treasure will last forever. And I need to accept and embrace that fact. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Accidents quotes by Alan Moore
#97. With your depth of field and curious soul, allowing something to evolve or to see meaning in playful accidents can make the difference between creating the same old thing, or something that is unique, valuable, lasting, beautiful. #Quote by Alan Moore
Accidents quotes by Jim Donovan
#98. It saddens me when I see older people using canes and walkers, especially since I know, in many cases, it could have been prevented. With the exception of accidents and injuries, the crippling effects of aging we see are the result of poor health choices, a sedentary lifestyle, lack of exercise and most of all, the acceptance that this is a "normal" part of the aging process. It is not. This will become quite clear as you read in Chapter 8 what the various health authorities have to say. #Quote by Jim Donovan
Accidents quotes by Ian McEwan
#99. It troubles him to consider the powerful currents and fine-tuning that alter fate, the close and distant influences, the accidents of character and circumstance. #Quote by Ian McEwan
Accidents quotes by Herman Kahn
#100. Hopefully, nations will refuse to accept a situation in which nuclear accidents actually do occur, and, if at all possible, they will do something to correct a system which makes them likely. #Quote by Herman Kahn
Accidents quotes by Michael Pollan
#101. Design in nature is but a concatenation of accidents, culled by natural selection until the result is so beautiful or effective as to seem a miracle of purpose. #Quote by Michael Pollan
Accidents quotes by Luis Bunuel
#102. As inexplicable as the accidents that set it off, our imagination is a crucial privilege. I've tried my whole life simply to accept the images that present themselves to me without trying to analyze them. I remember when we were shooting That Obscure Object of Desire in Seville and I suddenly found myself telling Fernando Rey, at the end of a scene, to pick up a big sack filled with tools lying on a bench, sling it over his shoulder, and walk away. The action was completely irrational, yet it seemed absolutely right to me. Still, I was worried about it, so I shot two versions of the scene: one with the sack, one without. But during the rushes the following day, the whole crew agreed that the scene was much better with the sack. Why? I can't explain it, and I don't enjoy rummaging around in the cliches of psychoanalysis. #Quote by Luis Bunuel
Accidents quotes by Edward Gibbon
#103. History, in fact, is no more than a list of the crimes of humanity, human follies and accidents #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Accidents quotes by Henry Miller
#104. It is no accident that propels people like us to Paris. Paris is simply an artificial stage, a revolving stage that permits the spectator to glimpse all phases of the conflict. Of itself Paris initiates no dramas. They are begun elsewhere. Paris is simply an obstetrical instrument that tears the living embryo from the womb and puts it in the incubator. Paris is the cradle of artificial births. Rocking here in the cradle each one slips back into his soil: one dreams back to Berlin, New York, Chicago, Vienna, Minsk. Vienna is never more Vienna than in Paris. Everything is raised to apotheosis. The cradle gives up its babes and new ones take their places. You can read here on the walls where Zola lived and Balzac and Dante and Strindberg and everybody who ever was anything. Everyone has lived here some time or other.Nobody dies here ... #Quote by Henry Miller
Accidents quotes by Elizabeth Jane Coatsworth
#105. To a life that seizes
Upon content,
Locality seems
But accident. #Quote by Elizabeth Jane Coatsworth
Accidents quotes by Charles Dickens
#106. Passing one of these boats at night, and seeing the great body of fire, exposed as I have just described, that rages and roars beneath the frail pile of painted wood: the machinery, not warded off or guarded in any way, but doing its work in the midst of the crowd of idlers and emigrants and children, who throng the lower deck: under the management, too, of reckless men whose acquaintance with its mysteries may have been of six months' standing: one feels directly that the wonder is, not that there should be so many fatal accidents, but that any journey should be safely made. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Accidents quotes by Edmond H. Fischer
#107. There is no escaping the fact that, even in a great career, sometimes the best advances happen through luck, chance and accident. #Quote by Edmond H. Fischer
Accidents quotes by Gucci Mane
#108. I'm just a careful person around wheels and stuff like that. I try to be as cautious as I can, cause I lost friends to motorcycle accidents and car accidents. So I don't ever play around anything like that. #Quote by Gucci Mane
Accidents quotes by Storm Saulter
#109. A lot of the times the first take was the best, because the actors are not analyzing themselves as much; they just do it. I believe in happy accidents and I'm not necessarily into actors getting the dialogue exactly as I wrote it; I'm much more into them understanding the motivations and have it come out in a natural way, and maybe catch something that I didn't expect. #Quote by Storm Saulter
Accidents quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#110. The steering wheel is turned by the driver, not the indicator, or the road sign. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Accidents quotes by Ellen Gallagher
#111. There's so much happenstance, so many accidents - stumbling into something and finding it interesting and living with it over time and building on it. It's okay to work from doubt. You need to be willing to not know. #Quote by Ellen Gallagher
Accidents quotes by Jimmy Carter
#112. On balance, my life has been a constant stream of blessings rather than disappointments and failures and tragedies. I wish I had been re-elected. I think I could have kept our country at peace. I think I could have consolidated what we achieved at Camp David with a treaty between Israel and the Palestinians. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Accidents quotes by Moira Fowley Doyle
#113. Accidents happen. Our bones shatter, our skin splits, our hearts break. We burn, we drown, we stay alive. #Quote by Moira Fowley Doyle
Accidents quotes by Bertrand Russell
#114. Right conduct can never, except by some rare accident, be promoted by ignorance or hindered by knowledge. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Accidents quotes by Adam Clarke
#115. There is no such thing as chance or accident; the words merely signify our ignorance of some real and immediate cause. #Quote by Adam Clarke
Accidents quotes by Laurence Gonzales
#116. CHARLES PERROW is a sociologist known for studying industrial accidents, such as those that occur with nuclear power plants, airlines, and shipping. In Normal Accidents, he wrote that We construct an expected world because we can't handle the complexity of the present one, and then process the information that fits the expected world, and find reasons to exclude the information that might contradict it. Unexpected or unlikely interactions are ignored when we make our construction. #Quote by Laurence Gonzales
Accidents quotes by Helen Keller
#117. I have never believed that my limitations were in any sense punishments or accidents. If I had held such a view, I could never have expected the strength to overcome them. #Quote by Helen Keller
Accidents quotes by David Wong
#118. Life is a flickering candle we all carry around. A gust of wind, a meaningless accident, a microsecond of carelessness, and it's out. Forever. #Quote by David Wong
Accidents quotes by Arnold Bennett
#119. Beware of undertaking too much at the start. Be content with quite a little. Allow for accidents. Allow for human nature, especially your own. #Quote by Arnold Bennett
Accidents quotes by William Shakespeare
#120. Time, whose millioned accidents creep in betwixt vows, and change decrees of kings, tan sacred beauty, blunt the sharpest intents, divert strong minds to the course of altering things. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Accidents quotes by Jodi Picoult
#121. The thing that most people didn't understand, if they weren't in his line if work, was that a rape victim and a victim of a fatal accident were both gone forever. The difference was that the rape victim still had to go through the motions of being alive. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Accidents quotes by Isabel Paterson
#122. Most of the harm in the world is done by good people, and not by accident, lapse, or omission. It is the result of their deliberate actions, long persevered in, which they hold to be motivated by high ideals toward virtuous ends. #Quote by Isabel Paterson
Accidents quotes by Paul Budnitz
#123. Success is an accident. Showing up, even if it's just for 5 minutes, makes us accident-prone. #Quote by Paul Budnitz
Accidents quotes by Teri Hatcher
#124. Don't try to be perfect. Life isn't; no one is. Use mistakes and mishaps as opportunities to grow tolerance and to teach. There is such a thing as happy accidents. And love, love, love and listen, listen, listen. #Quote by Teri Hatcher
Accidents quotes by Shane Harper
#125. When people know they are created with a purpose, and not here by accident, it is life-changing. #Quote by Shane Harper
Accidents quotes by Walt Whitman
#126. O to be self-balanced for contingencies, to confront night, storms, hunger, ridicule, accidents, rebuffs, as the trees and animals do. #Quote by Walt Whitman
Accidents quotes by Gail Caldwell
#127. What do you do when the story changes in midlife? When a tale you have told yourself turns out to be a little untrue, just enough to throw the world off-kilter? It's like leaving the train at the wrong stop: You are still you, but in a new place, there by accident or grace, and you will need your wits about you to proceed. #Quote by Gail Caldwell
Accidents quotes by Michael Josephson
#128. Living a life that matters doesn't happen by accident. It's not a matter of circumstance but of choice. Choose to live a life that matters. #Quote by Michael Josephson
Accidents quotes by George Farquhar
#129. We are the men of intrinsic value, who can strike our fortunes out of ourselves, whose worth is independent of accidents in life, or revolutions in government: we have heads to get money, and hearts to spend it. #Quote by George Farquhar
Accidents quotes by Bill Vaughan
#130. The more human beings proceed by plan the more effectively they may be hit by accident #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Accidents quotes by David Lynch
#131. I hate slick and pretty things. I prefer mistakes and accidents. Which is why I like things like cuts and bruises - they're like little flowers. I've always said that if you have a name for something, like 'cut' or 'bruise,' people will automatically be disturbed by it. But when you see the same thing in nature, and you don't know what it is, it can be very beautiful. #Quote by David Lynch
Accidents quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#132. Neither in tailoring nor in legislating does man proceed by mere accident. #Quote by Thomas Carlyle
Accidents quotes by Audrey Carlan
#133. Life is not fair. The moment one believes in total bliss, it gets shredded by circumstance and unforeseen accidents #Quote by Audrey Carlan
Accidents quotes by Glen Duncan
#134. I don't know where the universe came from or what happens to creatures when they die. I don't know if the whole thing's an unravelling accident or an inscrutable design. I don't know how one should live - but I know that one should live, if one can possibly bear it. #Quote by Glen Duncan
Accidents quotes by James Mahaffey
#135. As long as nuclear engineering can strive for new innovations and learn from its history of accidents and mistakes, the benefits that nuclear power can yield for our economy, society, and yes, environment, will come. #Quote by James Mahaffey
Accidents quotes by Stephen Hawking
#136. There are too many accidents that can befall life on a single planet. #Quote by Stephen Hawking
Accidents quotes by Abigail Tarttelin
#137. I never thought before how life is so accidental, how it can so easily and quickly be made, and then gone again, in the space of minutes. It makes me appreciate everything more, but it also makes me think about how much of our fate are set by chance, and how many little accidents had to happen to make me what and who I am. #Quote by Abigail Tarttelin
Accidents quotes by Dani Shapiro
#138. But I was at the threshold of understanding what Shirley had meant about my not being an accident of history. Or rather: either all of us are accidents of history or none of us are. One sperm, one egg, one moment. An interruption - a ringing phone, a knock on the door, a flashlight through the car window - a single second one way or the other and the result would be an entirely different human being. Mine was just more complicated, an accident involving vials, syringes, contracts, and secrets. #Quote by Dani Shapiro
Accidents quotes by Russel Honore
#139. You were born free by accident. You live free by choice. To die free is your responsibility. #Quote by Russel Honore
Accidents quotes by Deepak Chopra
#140. If I may take the risk of defining what a spiritual experience is, it is one in which pure awareness reveals itself to you as the maker of reality - where you suddenly discover through insight or meditation or a freak accident that your essential nature is spiritual, non-material. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Accidents quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#141. The power of a man increases steadily by continuance in one direction. He becomes acquainted with the resistances and with his own tools; increases his skill and strength and learns the favorable moments and favorable accidents. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Accidents quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#142. I love you sons of bitches. You're all I read any more. You're the only ones who'll talk all about the really terrific changes going on, the only ones crazy enough to know that life is a space voyage, and not a short one, either, but one that'll last for billions of years. You're the only ones with guts enough to really care about the future, who really notice what machines do to us, what wars do to us, what cities do to us, what big, simple ideas do to us, what tremendous misunderstanding, mistakes, accidents, catastrophes do to us. You're the only ones zany enough to agonize over time and distance without limit, over mysteries that will never die, over the fact that we are right now determining whether the space voyage for the next billion years or so is going to be Heaven or Hell. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Accidents quotes by Alice Hoffman
#143. Any weapon touched by a woman, even by accident, must be cleansed with both water and prayer so that her essence would not linger, diverting the warrior who might use it next, for even the faintest touch could bring lust to that man's heart. Perhaps that meant a woman who was well trained in arms would be the superior warrior, her attention never wavering from her task. #Quote by Alice Hoffman
Accidents quotes by A. Manette Ansay
#144. Nd it occurs to me how fragile our lives are, how at any moment the sky can open and drown us, the earth can open and swallow us. I think of all the intricate ways our bodies can betray us, the accidents and the atrocities, the missteps and the misunderstandings. #Quote by A. Manette Ansay
Accidents quotes by Patrick J. Adams
#145. My whole career is just terror, from beginning to end. That's kind of my thing. A lot of happy accidents happened. #Quote by Patrick J. Adams
Accidents quotes by Matt Richtel
#146. He repeated that the texting driver faces a sixfold crash risk, whereas a driver talking on the phone faced a four-times increase in likelihood of a crash, which he said was roughly equivalent to someone who is legally drunk. A drunk driver and a person on a phone were equally likely to crash, whereas "we're seeing the risk factor for accidents when someone is texting exceeds the level when people are legally drunk. #Quote by Matt Richtel
Accidents quotes by Frank Wedekind
#147. Half happy. We wander among Mayflowers, among the lonely paths in the woods. We hover over gatherings of people, over the scene of accidents, gardens, festivals. We cower in chimneys of dwelling places and behind the bed curtains. Give me your hand. We don't associate with each other, but we see and hear everything that is going on in the world. We know that everything is stupidity, everything that men do and contend for, and we laugh at it. #Quote by Frank Wedekind
Accidents quotes by Adam Young
#148. A boy and a girl started dating after he backed his car into hers. They met by accident. #Quote by Adam Young
Accidents quotes by Michele Scicolone
#149. I was baking cakes for a gourmet shop and put two chocolate cakes in oven to bake and when I opened the oven an hour later, they were raw - the oven wasn't working. I didn't know what to do. I couldn't borrow an oven and I didn't want to waste the batter, so I came up with the idea of steaming them and they came out great! Thick and fudgy, like pudding cake. That happy accident was always in the back of mind. #Quote by Michele Scicolone
Accidents quotes by Nikita Gill
#150. It is eerily terrifying that there is no sound when a heart breaks. Car accidents end with a bang, falling ends with a thud, even writing makes the scratching sound of pencil against paper. But the sound of a heart breaking is completely silent. Almost as though no one, not even the universe itself could create a sound for such devastation. Almost as though silence is the only way the universe could pay its respect to the sound of a heart falling apart. #Quote by Nikita Gill
Accidents quotes by Laurence Steinberg
#151. The public probably knows that teen drivers are at greater risk for fatal accidents. What the public doesn't know is what we ought to do about it. #Quote by Laurence Steinberg
Accidents quotes by Athol Fugard
#152. Sam: There's no collisions out there, Hally. Nobody trips or stumbles or bumps into anybody else. That's what that moment is all about. To be one of those finalists on that dance floor is like... like being in a dream about a world in which accidents don't happen.

Hally: [Genuinely moved by Sam's image.] Jesus, Sam! That's beautiful!

Willie: [Can endure waiting no longer.] I'm starting! [Willie dances while Sam talks.]

Sam: Of course it is. That's what I've been trying to say to you all afternoon. And it's beautiful because that is what we want life to be like. But instead, like you said, Hally, we're bumping into each other all the time. Look at the three of us this afternoon. I've bumped into Willie, the two of us have bumped into you, you've bumped into your mother, she bumping into your Dad... None of us knows the steps and there's no music playing. And it doesn't stop with us. The whole world is doing it all the time. Open a newspaper and what do you read? America has bumped into Russia, England is bumping into India, rich man bumps into poor man. Those are big collisions, Hally. They make for a lot of bruises. People get hurt in all that bumping, and we're sick and tired of it now. It's been going on for too long. Are we never going to get it right? ... Learn to dance life like champions instead of always being just a bunch of beginners at it?

Hally: [Deep and sincere admiration of the man.] You've got a vision, Sam!

#Quote by Athol Fugard
Accidents quotes by Stephen De Staebler
#153. I have discovered that the unasked-for accident can be the salvation of what you are doing. #Quote by Stephen De Staebler
Accidents quotes by John Steinbeck
#154. I have seen too many men go down, and I never permit myself to forget that one day, through accident or under the charge of a younger, stronger knight, I too will go down. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Accidents quotes by James R. Green
#155. Red Ash mine was also the location of a disaster in 1900, which killed forty-six miners. This earlier catastrophe outraged Mother Jones, who spoke of it often on her organizing campaign that year, and it had triggered public pressure to improve the state's mine safety laws. The legislature rejected all proposals for reform, however. The lawmakers apparently agreed with West Virginia's Republican governor, G. W. Atkinson, who said in 1901: "It is but the natural course of mining events that men should be injured and killed by accidents. #Quote by James R. Green
Accidents quotes by Kaye Gibbons
#156. I read about writers' lives with the fascination of one slowing down to get a good look at an automobile accident. #Quote by Kaye Gibbons
Accidents quotes by Peter Ackroyd
#157. It sometimes seems to me that the whole course of English history was one of accident, confusion, chance and unintended consequences - there's no real pattern. #Quote by Peter Ackroyd
Accidents quotes by Audre Lorde
#158. I am tired of writing memorials to black men
whom I was on the brink of knowing
weary like fig trees
weighted like a crepe myrtle
with all the black substance poured into earth
before earth is ready to bear.
I am tired of holy deaths
of the ulcerous illuminations the cerebral accidents
the psychology of the oppressed
where mental health is the ability
to repress
knowledge of the world's cruelty. #Quote by Audre Lorde
Accidents quotes by Rand Paul
#159. What I don't like from the president's administration is this sort of, 'I'll put my boot heel on the throat of BP.' I think that sounds really un-American in his criticism of business. I've heard nothing from BP about not paying for the spill. And I think it's part of this sort of blame-game society in the sense that it's always got to be someone's fault instead of the fact that sometimes accidents happen. #Quote by Rand Paul
Accidents quotes by Betty Comden
#160. There is something about the creative process ... which is that you can't talk about it. You try to think of anecdotes about it, and you try to explain, but you're never really saying what happened ... it's a sort of happy accident. #Quote by Betty Comden
Accidents quotes by William John Wills
#161. I have deposited some of my journals here for fear of accidents. #Quote by William John Wills
Accidents quotes by Mila Kunis
#162. I had a snowboarding accident. I fell off a horse. I've had a concussion, a fractured rib ... I walk into walls. I'm always bruised up. #Quote by Mila Kunis
Accidents quotes by Frank Pittman
#163. There are great advantages to seeing yourself as an accident created by amateur parents as they practiced. You then have been left in an imperfect state and the rest is up to you. Only the most pitifully inept child requires perfection from parents. #Quote by Frank Pittman
Accidents quotes by Laurell K. Hamilton
#164. I so wanted out of this conversation, but it was like a car accident: Once you started spinning, you could only wait and see what you hit. #Quote by Laurell K. Hamilton
Accidents quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#165. Slightest accidents open up new worlds. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Accidents quotes by Donald Trump
#166. What I hate about Halle Berry is there's always drama around her. It's always fighting, automobile accidents, fistfights, boyfriends fighting ex-husbands for the child. #Quote by Donald Trump
Accidents quotes by Zadie Smith
#167. I find it impossible to experience either pride or shame over accidents of genetics in which I had no active part. I'm not necessarily proud to be female. I am not even proud to be human - I only love to be so. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Accidents quotes by Francesco Guicciardini
#168. The affairs of this world are so shifting and depend on so many accidents, that it is hard to form any judgment concerning the future; nay, we see from experience that the forecasts even of the wise almost always turn out false. #Quote by Francesco Guicciardini
Accidents quotes by John Hench
#169. In live action movies, you just hope that everything works. Because the actor may had a bad morning and doesn't play good, or accidents happen continuously. Many things contradict what you are trying to say. But in cartoons, nothing contradict what you want to say. #Quote by John Hench
Accidents quotes by Samuel Johnson
#170. Shakespeare is above all writers, at least above all modern writers, the poet of nature; the poet that holds up to his readers a faithful mirrour of manners and of life. His characters are not modified by the customs of particular places, unpractised by the rest of the world; by the peculiarities of studies or professions, which can operate but upon small numbers; or by the accidents of transient fashions or temporary opinions: they are the genuine progeny of common humanity, such as the world will always supply, and observation will always find. His persons act and speak by the influence of those general passions and principles by which all minds are agitated, and the whole system of life is continued in motion. In the writings of other poets a character is too often an individual; in those of Shakespeare it is commonly a species. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Accidents quotes by John Holmes
#171. I liked the rain. It made it harder, the harder the better. I didn't see accidents but there are a lot of broken cars out there. #Quote by John Holmes
Accidents quotes by S.E. Hinton
#172. I guess I just couldn't see standing there
alive, talking, thinking, breathing, being
one second, and dead the next. It really bothered me. Death by violence isn't the same as dying any other way, accident or disease or old age. It just ain't the same. #Quote by S.E. Hinton
Accidents quotes by George Santayana
#173. Each religion necessarily contradicts every other religion, and probably contradicts itself. Religions, like languages, are necessary rivals. What religion a man shall have is a historical accident, quite as much as what language he shall speak. #Quote by George Santayana
Accidents quotes by Bill Vaughan
#174. If you're involved in an accident and you're at fault $500,000 may not be enough. Do you really want to lose your house because you failed to spend an extra couple of hundred bucks? #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Accidents quotes by Leonard Mlodinow
#175. In his theory Perrow recognized that modern systems are made up of thousands of parts, including fallible human decision makers, which interrelate in ways that are, like Laplace´s atoms, impossible to track and anticipate individually. Yet one can bet on the fact that just as atoms executing a drunkard´s walk will eventually get somewhere, so too will accidents eventually occur. Called normal accident theory, Perrow´s doctrine describes how that happens – how accidents can occur without clear causes, without those glaring errors and incompetent villains sought by corporate or government commission. #Quote by Leonard Mlodinow
Accidents quotes by Richard Hugo
#176. Lucky accidents seldom happen to writers who don't work. You will find that you may rewrite and rewrite a poem and it never seems quite right. Then a much better poem may come rather fast and you wonder why you bothered with all that work on the earlier poem. Actually, the hard work you do on one poem is put in on all poems. The hard work on the first poem is responsible for the sudden ease of the second. If you just sit around waiting for the easy ones, nothing will come. Get to work. #Quote by Richard Hugo
Accidents quotes by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
#177. It's so easy to think that we're the only ones who suffer, while other people are somehow immune to pain, as though they'd been born with some kind of special knowledge about being happy, that, through some cosmic accident, we never received. Thinking in this way, we make our own problems seem much bigger than they really are. #Quote by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
Accidents quotes by Pietro Metastasio
#178. High birth is an accident, not a virtue. #Quote by Pietro Metastasio
Accidents quotes by Peter Jelen
#179. , civilization is an ever-changing tacit agreement, culturally inherited, not chosen at birth. Civilization is the invention of man, my big friend. It is a means of ensuring order and structure; it is man's attempt to expunge all and every act of randomness from daily life. The ultimate goal of civilization is determinism, the complete absence of freewill. If everyone adhered to every rule, every demand, every decree of civilization, there would be no accidents, no arguments, no crime! Man would move through his life smoothly, like a well-oiled cog in a grandfather clock. #Quote by Peter Jelen
Accidents quotes by Ninette De Valois
#180. Also, if you have an accident, you can't start to dance again at the top, you're too weak; you start with the easy things - the way you did them when you were young, and come up up up, the way you did then. #Quote by Ninette De Valois
Accidents quotes by Julie B. Beck
#181. Strong families are not an accident ... They take thought and intention and preparation and skill. #Quote by Julie B. Beck
Accidents quotes by Margaret Sanger
#182. When motherhood becomes the fruit of a deep yearning, not the result of ignorance or accident, its children will become the foundation of a new race. #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Accidents quotes by Christopher Riche Evans
#183. The terrors of the future will not come from the drab repressions of an encroaching bureaucracy, but from the neon lights of a thousand supermarkets, the sounds of a million automobile accidents and from the public cremation of the dead astronauts as they return to earth. #Quote by Christopher Riche Evans
Accidents quotes by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
#184. One tragic example of this orientation is the rampant prescription of painkillers, which now kill more people each year in the United States than guns or car accidents. #Quote by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
Accidents quotes by Jerry Smith
#185. Don't learn safety by accident. #Quote by Jerry Smith
Accidents quotes by Hector Bianciotti
#186. So many catastrophes in love are only accidents of egotism. #Quote by Hector Bianciotti
Accidents quotes by Avicenna
#187. Now it is established in the sciences that no knowledge is acquired save through the study of its causes and beginnings, if it has had causes and beginnings; nor completed except by knowledge of its accidents and accompanying essentials. #Quote by Avicenna
Accidents quotes by Leo Buscaglia
#188. A wonderful realization will be the day you realize that you are unique in all the world. There is nothing that is an accident. You are a special combination for a purpose
and don't let them tell you otherwise, even if they tell you that purpose is an illusion. (Live an illusion if you have to). You are that combination so that you can do what is essential for you to do. Don't ever believe that you have nothing to contribute. The world is an incredibly unfulfilled tapestry. And only you can fulfill that tiny space that is yours. #Quote by Leo Buscaglia
Accidents quotes by Billy Graham
#189. He will give his angels charge of you to guard you in all your ways. PSALM 91:11 RSV A secret agent is one who seeks to protect his country, his king, or his president against evil forces that are opposed to the one he serves. The American Secret Service is charged with protecting the president of the United States. They do an excellent job, but even they will tell you that someone who is fiercely determined to assassinate the president could be successful. God has His own secret agents - the angels. Unseen and unrecognized by the world, they never fail in their appointed tasks. Much has been written recently about angels - often not based on the Bible but on popular legends. But angels are real, and God has commanded them to watch over us. Only in eternity will we know how many accidents they prevented or how often they kept Satan's malicious spirits at bay. In the meantime, we can take comfort in their presence and thank God for the love He expresses for us through their service. #Quote by Billy Graham
Accidents quotes by Claudia Gray
#190. My paintings are the result of countless small brushstrokes, each one shaded with a different blend of colors, each one with a single, deliberate purpose. Every moment, every day, we are all making something - whether it's science or art, a relationship or a destiny - building it choice by choice, moment by moment. Our decisions shape other people's worlds as well as our own. We are all the center of our own universe and all of use in someone else's orbit. It's a paradox, but sometimes paradoxes are where truth begins.
My father would point out that the Beatles told us all of this decades ago. They one sang that in the end, the love we take is equal to the love we make. No, we can never be in complete control of our fates - we're all vulnerable to accidents, to cruelty, and to the random misfortune of life. But I try to think about how much of it is up to us. We decide what emotions serve as our building blocks, which feelings we'll use to shape our universe. #Quote by Claudia Gray
Accidents quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#191. I am an American, not by accident of birth but by choice. I voted with my feet and became an American because I love this country and think it is exceptional. #Quote by Fareed Zakaria

Accidents quotes by Melina Marchetta
#193. Sit back and get some sleep. Oh great. So if we have an accident and I'm asleep my resistance toward fighting death will be down and I'll wake up in a morgue. #Quote by Melina Marchetta
Accidents quotes by Alan Coren
#194. The Act of God designation on all insurance policies; which means, roughly, that you cannot be insured for the accidents that are most likely to happen to you. #Quote by Alan Coren
Accidents quotes by Alice Hoffman
#195. But where do we go?"(Elinor)
"I used to think there was a plan, a rough plan, but a plan all the same," the doctor admitted. "Now, I believe there are a thousand plans. Every breath, every decision, influences the plan, expands it, shortens it, twists it all around. It's always changing. Those of us lucky enough to make it through the multitude of possible diseases and accidents get old. We get tired. We close our eyes."
"And then? Where are we then?"
Silly to ask him as though he knew, but in fact the doctor didn't hesitate. He took Elinor's hand and placed it on his chest, in the place where he knew his heart to be.
Elinor smiled and thought at last. At last someone had told her the truth. #Quote by Alice Hoffman
Accidents quotes by Shelley Berkley
#196. One accident or terrorist strike involving high-level waste would endanger lives and cause a catastrophe that would leave millions of dollars in damages and take years to clean up #Quote by Shelley Berkley
Accidents quotes by Elizabeth Wurtzel
#197. By the time the sixties hit their home bases, we the kids, were already born, and our parents found themselves stuck between an entrenched belief that children needed to be raised in a traditional household, and a new sense that anything was possible, that the alternative lifestyle was out there for the asking. There they were in marriages they once thought were a necessity and with children they'd had almost by accident in a world that was suddenly saying, 'No necessities! No accidents! Drop Everything!' A little too old to take full advantage of the cultural revolution, our parents just got all the fallout. Freedom hit them obliquely, and invidiously, rather than head-on. Instead of waiting longer to get married, our parents got divorced; Instead of becoming feminists, our mothers were left to become displaced homemakers. A lot of unhappy situations were dissolved by people who were not quite young or free enough to start again. #Quote by Elizabeth Wurtzel
Accidents quotes by Christina Henry
#198. The world gobbles us and chews us and swallows us," Hatcher said, in that uncanny way he had of reading her thoughts. "I think happy endings must be accidents."
"But we hope for them all the same," Alice said. She looked sadly at the remains of those hopeful faces. Above all, we hope not to die in terror. #Quote by Christina Henry
Accidents quotes by Brad Meltzer
#200. My worst moments as a parent have been much like my greatest moments as a parent: the product of complete and perfect accident. #Quote by Brad Meltzer
