Adapt quotes by Tony Hawk
#1. You just have to adapt, and you have to realize where people are going to actually play their games. It used to just be Nintendo and PlayStation, and now it's all kind of devices. So you've got to learn to adapt what you know from the technology into those areas ... I've been wanting to do a mobile game for a long time. #Quote by Tony Hawk
Adapt quotes by John Key
#2. Your personality as the prime minister feeds through to what you emphasise, and what you don't, how you'll handle a situation - whether you've got the combination of intelligence or instincts to adapt and to make good decisions. #Quote by John Key
Adapt quotes by Stanley Kubrick
#3. The reality of the final moment, just before shooting [the scene], is so powerful that all previous analysis must yield before the impressions you receive under these circumstances, and unless you use this feedback to your positive advantage, unless you adjust to it, adapt to it and accept the sometimes terrifying weaknesses it can expose, you can never realize the most out of your film. #Quote by Stanley Kubrick
Adapt quotes by Alan Dean Foster
#4. A few, less constrained by pride and more resilient, survived and had children. Their offspring grew up with no illusions about the supremacy of humankind or anykind. They matured and observed the world around them through different eyes. Roll the log. Give and take. Bend with the wind. Adapt, adapt, adapt ... ! #Quote by Alan Dean Foster
Adapt quotes by Kamil Ali
#5. The world carried on before we arrived. We make our entrance, adapt to our surroundings and join the chase to nowhere. We depart without fulfilment. The world carries on. #Quote by Kamil Ali
Adapt quotes by Mohammed Sekouty
#6. Adopt your own view and adapt with others' views #Quote by Mohammed Sekouty
Adapt quotes by Joseph Smith Jr.
#7. We may come to Jesus and ask Him; He will know all about it; if He comes to a little child, he will adapt himself to the language and capacity of a little child. #Quote by Joseph Smith Jr.
Adapt quotes by Dolph Schayes
#8. It's fair to say that Jews dominated basketball and that started in the 30s in all the big cities. I think it was simply because Jews lived in ghettoes and basketball is a great schoolyard game. You don't need a lot of space or equipment and you can adapt it to how many players you have. #Quote by Dolph Schayes
Adapt quotes by Jack Canfield
#9. Change is inevitable in life. You can either resist it and potentially get run over by it, or you can choose to cooperate with it, adapt to it, and learn how to benefit from it. When you embrace change you will begin to see it as an opportunity for growth. #Quote by Jack Canfield
Adapt quotes by Paul Theroux
#10. Basically, what you find out is the limits of your patience and your strength and your capacity to adapt. You find that out in travel and being alone and being tested. So that's a great thing. #Quote by Paul Theroux
Adapt quotes by Christian Lous Lange
#11. The free trade movement in the middle of the last century represents the first conscious recognition of these new circumstances and of the necessity to adapt to them. #Quote by Christian Lous Lange
Adapt quotes by William S Lind
#12. War always changes. Our enemies learn and adapt, and we must do the same or lose. But today, war is changing faster and on a larger scale than at any time in the last 350 years. Not only are we facing rapid change in how war is fought, we are facing radical changes in who fights and what they are fighting for. All over the world, state militaries find themselves fighting non-state opponents. This kind of war, which we call Fourth Generation war, or 4GW, is a very difficult challenge. #Quote by William S Lind
Adapt quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#13. He'd expected more complaints, but even Wylan had simply put his head down and walked. They're all survivors, Matthias understood. They adapt. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Adapt quotes by Simon Kuper
#14. The things we once thought of as luxuries soon become necessities (although, by the same token, our sense of well-being would quickly adapt to losing half our income). What we care about is not our absolute wealth but our rung on the ladder. Ruut Veenhoven, a leading researcher of happiness, says, "When we have overtaken the Joneses, our reference drifts upward to the Smiths, and we feel unhappy again. #Quote by Simon Kuper
Adapt quotes by Atul Gawande
#15. The philosophy is that you push the power of decision making out to the periphery and away from the center. You give people the room to adapt, based on their experience and expertise. All you ask is that they talk to one another and take responsibility. That is what works. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Adapt quotes by Asne Seierstad
#16. As a woman, you accept the situation, adapt to it, and do your best, whereas men would choose violence. #Quote by Asne Seierstad
Adapt quotes by Ace Antonio Hall
#17. If their students aren't learning, then they are not teaching. Adapt to global, auditory, tactile & visual learners. #Quote by Ace Antonio Hall
Adapt quotes by Robert Haven Schauffler
#18. Poetry affords us a respite in which we may gather renewed strength for the old struggle to adapt ourselves to reality. #Quote by Robert Haven Schauffler
Adapt quotes by Leon Krier
#19. The problem was Le Corbusier was a genius and an enormous artist, but he tried to resolve problems to which there is no solution. So the idea to demolish the centre of Paris in order to adapt it to the car - he drew it! - is something not even the most bloody dictators conceived. #Quote by Leon Krier
Adapt quotes by Wilhelm Von Humboldt
#20. In every remodelling of the present, the existing condition of things must be supplanted by a new one. Now every variety of circumstances in which men find themselves, every object which surrounds them, communicates a definite form and impress to their internal nature. This form is not such that it can change and adapt itself to any other a man may choose to receive; and the end is foiled, while the power is destroyed, when we attempt to impose upon that which is already stamped in the soul a form which disagrees with it. #Quote by Wilhelm Von Humboldt
Adapt quotes by Abraham H. Maslow
#21. The needs for safety, belonging, love relations and for respect can be satisfied only by other people, i.e., only from outside the person. This means considerable dependence on the environment. A person in this dependent position cannot really be said to be governing himself, or in control of his own fate. He must be beholden to the sources of supply of needed gratifications. Their wishes, their whims, their rules and laws govern him and must be appeased lest he jeopardize his sources of supply. He must be, to an extent, "other-directed," and must be sensitive to other people's approval, affection and good will. This is the same as saying that he must adapt and adjust by being flexible and responsive and by changing himself to fit the external situation. He is the dependent variable; the environment is the fixed, independent variable. #Quote by Abraham H. Maslow
Adapt quotes by Edward Abbey
#22. There's another disadvantage to the use of the flashlight: like many other mechanical gadgets it tends to separate a man from the world around him. If I switch it on my eyes adapt to it and I can see only the small pool of light it makes in front of me; I am isolated. Leaving the flashlight in my pocket where it belongs, I remain a part of the environment I walk through and my vision though limited has no sharp or definite boundary. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Adapt quotes by Louise Gornall
#23. Your mind adapts to what worse is. Suddenly, that thing that seemed so terrifying at first is dwarfed by the next challenge that comes your way. But you adapt again and again and again, until you find yourself fearless. #Quote by Louise Gornall
Adapt quotes by Carey Mulligan
#24. I can change my appearance quite easily just by changing my hair. So I can adapt quite well. #Quote by Carey Mulligan
Adapt quotes by G.R. Matthews
#25. Zhou," Biyu said, when Sabaa paused, "before the Jade Emperor, humans were just like the beasts in the field. We ate, lived and reproduced, but we were going nowhere. The universe is order in all its perfection, stagnant and unchanging. The wars set us free. Free to change, to learn, to adapt, to become more than we were. To do that, we sacrificed order for a measure of chaos, of challenge. It let some people, men and women, do evil, but even that inspired many more to do good. Medicines, writing, music, architecture, all the accomplishments of your Empire came at a high price, but it was worth paying. Tonight we reaffirm that fact. Without the power we grant the Jade Emperor from the realms we represent, we would lose all that we have gained. The universe would reassert its control. Over the years, order would take charge once more and progress would end. Given time, our race would slide back into the beasts we were once. It is something we could not survive. #Quote by G.R. Matthews
Adapt quotes by Max Weber
#26. The capitalistic economy of the present day is an immense cosmos into which the individual is born, and which presents itself to him, at least as an individual, as an unalterable order of things in which he must live. It forces the individual, in so far as he is involved in the system of market relationships, to conform to capitalistic rules of action, The manufacturer who in the long run acts counter to these norms, will just as inevitably be eliminated from the economic scene as the worker who cannot or will not adapt himself to them will be thrown into the streets without a job.

Thus the capitalism of to-day, which has come to dominate economic life, educates and selects the economic subjects which it needs through a process of economic survival of the fittest. But here one can easily see the limits of the concept of selection as a means of historical explanation. In order that a manner of life so well adapted to the peculiarities of capitalism could be selected at all, i.e. should come to dominate others, it had to originate somewhere, and not in isolated individuals alone, but as a way of life common to whole groups of men. This origin is what really needs explanation. #Quote by Max Weber
Adapt quotes by Julia Whelan
#27. Our memories of places, much like people, are subject to our own adaptation process. Once the active living is done, and they pass into memory, we assume control of the narrative. We adapt it, sometimes without meaning to. This is, perhaps, the one advantage of death: when people die, they can live on in our memory as we choose, but places continue to exist, to change. #Quote by Julia Whelan
Adapt quotes by Fritjof Capra
#28. [O]rganizations need to undergo fundamental changes, both in order to adapt to the new business environment and to become ecologically sustainable. #Quote by Fritjof Capra
Adapt quotes by Albert Einstein
#29. Often in evolutionary processes a species must adapt to new conditions in order to survive. Today the atomic bomb has altered profoundly the nature of the world as we know it, and the human race consequently finds itself in a new habitat to which it must adapt its thinking. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Adapt quotes by Bernard Kelvin Clive
#30. The world is fast changing and until you learn to adapt and adjust to stand out from the masses, you will fade into oblivion #Quote by Bernard Kelvin Clive
Adapt quotes by Jean Hanff Korelitz
#31. My first three novels were all the subjects of intensely exciting flurries of calls from producers and even stars' production companies, and once someone actually hired a screenwriter to adapt one of my books - but it all came to nothing, so I tried not to get too excited when a Hollywood suitor came calling for 'Admission,' my fourth novel. #Quote by Jean Hanff Korelitz
Adapt quotes by Tyson Fury
#32. I will become the greatest, because all travellers have to be able to adapt. That quality, adaptability, is essential to that way of life. Not many boxers have it but I can adapt before a fight to the opponent, during the fight if necessary. #Quote by Tyson Fury
Adapt quotes by Carsten Jensen
#33. War was like sailing. You could learn about clouds, wind direction, and currents, but the sea remained forever unpredictable. All you could do was adapt to it and try to return home alive. #Quote by Carsten Jensen
Adapt quotes by Raymond B. Fosdick
#34. The only life worth living is the adventurous life. Of such a life the dominant characteristic is that it is unafraid. It is unafraid of what other people think ... It does not adapt either its pace or its objectives to the pace and objectives of its neighbors. It thinks its own thoughts, it reads its own books. It develops its own hobbies, and it is governed by its own conscience. The herd may graze where it pleases or stampede where it pleases, but he who lives the adventurous life will remain unafraid when he finds himself alone. #Quote by Raymond B. Fosdick
Adapt quotes by Philippa Perry
#35. Plasticity is an intrinsic property of the human brain and represents evolution's invention to enable the nervous system to escape the restrictions of its own genome and thus adapt to environmental pressures, physiologic changes, and experiences. #Quote by Philippa Perry
Adapt quotes by Jim Highsmith
#36. a good set of questions to determine whether a project leader - or even an individual contributor - has an agile mindset might be, "In what specific ways and with what practices do you focus on value first and constraints last?" "In what specific ways and with what practices do you manage teams rather than tasks?" "In what specific ways and with what practices do you adapt to change rather than conform to plans?" Try these out in your organization to get a feel for your agile maturity. #Quote by Jim Highsmith
Adapt quotes by Michael Lewis
#37. The markets were now run by technology, but the technologists were still treated like tools. Nobody bothered to explain the business to them, but they were forced to adapt to its demands and exposed to its failures - which was, perhaps, why there had been so many more conspicuous failures. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Adapt quotes by Will Chase
#38. Being exposed to the diversity of music I was as a kid made me the actor I am today. As an actor, you have to adapt and do so many different things. #Quote by Will Chase
Adapt quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#39. An adult can take a principle and adapt it to his needs. But we're not ready for that yet. We're children. And when you're teaching a child, you require him to do what is right until he grows old enough to make his own choices. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Adapt quotes by Carter Stroud
#40. We are what we adapt to. #Quote by Carter Stroud
Adapt quotes by Stephen Bungay
#41. Do not try to predict the effects your actions will have, because you can't. Instead, encourage people to adapt their actions to realize the overall intention as they observe what is actually happening. Give them boundaries which are broad enough to take decisions for themselves and act on them. #Quote by Stephen Bungay
Adapt quotes by Bing Gordon
#42. The potential for social commerce today is "infinite" ... Every ecommerce site will have to adapt #Quote by Bing Gordon
Adapt quotes by Anonymous
#43. In order to adapt to a changing world, we must help, or at the very least not hinder, global transformation and the concomitant socioeconomic changes: urbanization, higher educational achievement, changes in employment structures. #Quote by Anonymous
Adapt quotes by Michel Ocelot
#44. My inspiration is my life, what I see happening around me. It can be history and, quite often, plain traditional fairy tales. But I never adapt; I nourish myself with old stories, and then create my own tales. #Quote by Michel Ocelot
Adapt quotes by Liv Ullmann
#45. The Summer Book is beautiful and warm, with the kind of wisdom we can adapt to our everyday lives. #Quote by Liv Ullmann
Adapt quotes by Bernie Glassman
#46. Sometimes you come to a fall and sometimes you come to white water. Your rowing has to adapt to the situation. You can't do the same stroke coming down a small stream as you would coming down Niagara Falls. Even if you're only rowing down a stream, different things happen: maybe the wind changes, maybe the current, and suddenly everything's different. So gently is really important. Don't power yourself or blast through; rock with the way things are. #Quote by Bernie Glassman
Adapt quotes by Dave Redding
#47. We are not ashamed to incorporate and adapt a good idea to our needs just because we didn't come up with it. Likewise, we are not afraid to abandon something we actually did come up with ourselves if we discover that it doesn't work. #Quote by Dave Redding
Adapt quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#48. Change helps you to adapt to circumstances in life. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Adapt quotes by Dan Ariely
#49. You may think that taking a break during an irritating or boring experience will be good for you, but a break actually decreases your ability to adapt, making the experience seem worse when you have to return to it. When cleaning your house or doing your taxes, the trick is to stick with it until you are done. #Quote by Dan Ariely
Adapt quotes by Andrew Davies
#50. I'd love to adapt more contemporary novels. But there isn't really enough story and character to make a really satisfying serial, so they tend to be single dramas. #Quote by Andrew Davies
Adapt quotes by Tim Jackson
#51. Novelty is adaptive when things are changing and you need to adapt yourself. Tradition is essential to lay down the stability to raise families and form cohesive social groups. #Quote by Tim Jackson
Adapt quotes by Trix Wilkins
#52. The more important factors are a man's perseverance, his ability to innovate and think of new ideas, to be willing to adapt to changing conditions, to push almost tirelessly at a task or several at a time, during the difficult seasons as well as the prosperous. Certainly a man may be all these on his own, and succeed, wife or no – but to have a wife who possessed these qualities, who could bring out in her husband such steadiness and strength of character by her example and unyielding affection… The worth of such a wife is immeasurable. - James Laurence to his grandson, Laurie #Quote by Trix Wilkins
Adapt quotes by Benjamin Rush
#53. The business of education has lay[ed] the foundations for nurseries of wise and good men, to adapt our modes of teaching to the peculiar form of our government ... He must be taught to love his fellow creatures in every part of the world, but he must cherish with a more intense and peculiar affection the citizens of Pennsylvania and of the United States. #Quote by Benjamin Rush
Adapt quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#54. The real struggle is in your own mind. You must know you are going to win before you start the fight. You have to see it, smell it, and believe it utterly. It is a form of confidence, but you must guard against overconfidence. You have to be flexible - able to adapt in an instant and never allow yourself to give up. Without this, nothing else is possible. #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
Adapt quotes by Dhani Jones
#55. When I was younger, I used to wrestle, and I feel that it contributed to my athletic ability because as a wrestler you have to be an all-encompassed athlete. You need stamina, strength, endurance and mental capacity. You also have to learn how to adapt in any situation. #Quote by Dhani Jones
Adapt quotes by Chad Camara
#56. UX Design is a practical yet very thoughtful discipline, and a UX Designer's single most important skill is the ability to learn and adapt. #Quote by Chad Camara
Adapt quotes by Chris Jericho
#57. I've always been the type of guy that wants to change, adapt and morph from year to year. #Quote by Chris Jericho
Adapt quotes by Jon Feltheimer
#58. You change your business plan to anticipate and adapt to changes in the marketplace. #Quote by Jon Feltheimer
Adapt quotes by Alice Dellal
#59. You adapt your look to places you live, where you are and what you are doing. #Quote by Alice Dellal
Adapt quotes by Stephen Kinzer
#60. One of the immutable patterns of history is the rise and fall of great powers. Those that survive are the ones that adapt as the world changes. #Quote by Stephen Kinzer
Adapt quotes by Jacques Ellul
#61. Technological society leads to increasing numbers of people who cannot adapt to the inhuman rhythm of modern life with its emphasis on specialization. A class of people is growing up who are unexploitable because they are not worth employing even for the minimum wage. Technological progress makes whole categories of people useless without making it possible to support them with the wealth produced by the progress. #Quote by Jacques Ellul
Adapt quotes by Sonny Rollins
#62. My mother came from St. Thomas. I heard that melody and all I did was actually adapt it. I made my adaptation of sort of an island traditional melody. It did become sort of my trademark tune. #Quote by Sonny Rollins
Adapt quotes by Milan Kundera
#63. Why does Anna Karenina kill herself? the answer seems clear enough: for years people in her world have turned away from her; she is suffering at the separation from her son, Seryozha; even if Vronsky still loves her, she fears for that love; she is exhausted with it, overexcited, unwholesomely (and unjustly) jealous; she feels trapped. Yes, all that is clear; but is a trapped person necessarily doomed to suicide? So many people adapt to living in a trap! Even if we understand the depth of her sorrow, Anna's suicide remains an enigma. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Adapt quotes by Immanuel Kant
#64. Parents usually educate their children merely in such a manner than however bad the world may be, they may adapt themselves to its present conditions. But they ought to give them an education so much better than this, that a better condition of things may thereby be brought about by the future. #Quote by Immanuel Kant
Adapt quotes by Dan Buettner
#65. Of course, Minneapolis, we think, 'Oh well, it's cold there, lethally cold.' But the reality is you adapt to weather ... Humans are consummately adaptable creatures. #Quote by Dan Buettner
Adapt quotes by Herbert Read
#66. The modern poet has no essential alliance with regular schemes of any sorts.He reserves the right to adapt his rhythm to his mood, to modulate his metre as he progresses. Far from seeking freedom and irresponsibility (implied by the unfortunate term free verse) he seeks a stricter discipline of exact concord of thought and feeling. #Quote by Herbert Read
Adapt quotes by Kristy Cunning
#67. Why do I feel bad about leaving him behind?

I liked it better when I just wanted to key his car to feel good.

He's like Anna. Once they're in your life, you just adapt to their creepy ways and start to find the weird charm in them. Damn him for making me miss her, and damn him for worming his way into the part of my mind that makes me worry about him.

"Are you going to be okay?" I ask when the knocking gets really obnoxious.

He groans.

"Only if you make her stop before I have to kill her and really piss Arion off."

With that, I remember Damien is also a monster, and I turn and head off with the assurance he's a big boy who can take care of himself, even when he looks sad, miserable, and a little lonely. #Quote by Kristy Cunning
Adapt quotes by Alexander Lowen
#68. The cases described in this section (The Fear of Being) may seem extreme, but I have become convinced that they are not as uncommon as one would think. Beneath the seemingly rational exterior of our lives is a fear of insanity. We dare not question the values by which we live or rebel against the roles we play for fear of putting our sanity into doubt. We are like the inmates of a mental institution who must accept its inhumanity and insensitivity as caring and knowledgeableness if they hope to be regarded as sane enough to leave. The question who is sane and who is crazy was the theme of the novel One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. The question, what is sanity? was clearly asked in the play Equus.
The idea that much of what we do is insane and that if we want to be sane, we must let ourselves go crazy has been strongly advanced by R.D. Laing. In the preface to the Pelican edition of his book The Divided Self, Laing writes: "In the context of our present pervasive madness that we call normality, sanity, freedom, all of our frames of reference are ambiguous and equivocal." And in the same preface: "Thus I would wish to emphasize that our 'normal' 'adjusted' state is too often the abdication of ecstasy, the betrayal of our true potentialities; that many of us are only too successful in acquiring a false self to adapt to false realities."
Wilhelm Reich had a somewhat similar view of present-day human behavior. Thus Reich says, "Homo normalis blocks off entirely the perce #Quote by Alexander Lowen
Adapt quotes by Andrew Morton
#69. The turning-point [in Klosters, Switzerland in 1988]

[Diana's sister] Jane's wonderfully solid. If you ring up with a drama, she says: 'Golly, gosh, Duch, how horrible, how sad and how awful' and gets angry. But my sister Sarah swears: 'Poor Duch, such a shitty thing to happen.' My father says: 'Just remember we always love you.'
But that summer [1988] when I made so many cock-ups I sat myself down in the autumn, when I was in Scotland, and I remember saying to myself: 'Right, Diana, it's no good, you've got to change it right round, this publicity, you've got to grow up and be responsible. You've got to understand that you can't do what other 26- and 27-year olds are doing. You've been chosen to do a position so you must adapt to the position and stop fighting it.' I remember my conversation so well, sitting by water. I always sit by water when contemplating.
Stephen Twigg [a therapist] who comes to see me said once: 'Whatever anybody else thinks of you is none of your business.' That sat with me. Then once someone said to me, when I said I've got to go up to Balmoral, and they said: 'Well, you've got to put up with them but they've also got to put up with you.' This myth about me hating Balmoral--I love Scotland but just the atmosphere drains me to nothing. I go up 'strong Diana.' I come away depleted of everything because they just suck me dry, because I tune in to all their moods and, boy, are there some undercurrents there! Instead of having a holida #Quote by Andrew Morton
Adapt quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#70. In my dear pine-clad mountains of the Harz There's a pitchlike smell, a smell I favor Most of all, excepting that of sulphur. But here among these Greeks there's not a trace Of anything like that. I'm curious To find out what they use below in their Hell To stoke the fires with, their kind of fuel. DRYAD. I guess you're smart enough in your own country, Abroad you're something less than apt; 8220 Stop thinking home thoughts, try, Sir, to adapt And show due honor to our sacred oak tree. MEPHISTO. What you have lost, that's what you think about, #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Adapt quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#71. You can see the old cities still everywhere. The bones and bricks go to dust, but the little pieces of plastic never do - they never adapt either. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Adapt quotes by Todd Haynes
#72. It's hard to transport myself forward in time, and the scarcity of opportunity back then kind of fueled my ambition. But back in my day, every family I knew had a Super 8 camera, and that's what I first picked up. We adapt to the technology we have available. But for the kids of today, they can really make something great with what is available. #Quote by Todd Haynes
Adapt quotes by Nora Ephron
#73. There is something called the rapture of the deep, and it refers to what happens when a deep-sea diver spends too much time at the bottom of the ocean and can't tell which way is up. When he surfaces, he's liable to have a condition called the bends, where the body can't adapt to the oxygen levels in the atmosphere. All of this happens to me when I surface from a great book. #Quote by Nora Ephron
Adapt quotes by Jim Hunt
#74. Who knows what technology will emerge in the next five years, let alone 20. Yet the education we provide our children now is supposed to last for decades. We cannot train them for jobs that do not even exist yet, but we can provide them with the minds and tools they'll need to adapt to our ever-changing set of circumstances. #Quote by Jim Hunt
Adapt quotes by Fernando Torres
#75. The Premier League is very difficult football and very different to when you play in Europe, but the player has to have experience to adapt, and this is the key point. #Quote by Fernando Torres
Adapt quotes by Kazuo Ishiguro
#76. I wouldn't want to try to adapt something of my own. It would be like going back to school and doing all my exams again. #Quote by Kazuo Ishiguro
Adapt quotes by Tim Federle
#77. Even when you yourself have gotten used to being harassed, there is still nothing worse than the feeling of your family being mortified for you. You never adapt to that. #Quote by Tim Federle
Adapt quotes by Elena Ferrante
#78. In hyperbolic tones he listed the catastrophes that in his view were approaching: one, the decline of the revolutionary subject par excellence, the working class; two, the definitive dispersion of the political patrimony of socialists and Communists, who were already perverted by their daily quarrel over which was playing the role of capital's crutch; three, the end of every hypothesis of change, what was there was there and we would have to adapt to it. #Quote by Elena Ferrante
Adapt quotes by Patrick Woodroffe
#79. Let us learn to adapt our ways to the generosity of Nature. Let us learn to care, yet without letting care itself bring us down. Let us learn to think, yet without letting thought be our only master. Let us learn to die, yet without believing in death. #Quote by Patrick Woodroffe
Adapt quotes by Rudolf Arnheim
#80. Rather than be asked to abandon one's own heritage and to adapt to the mores of the new country, one was expected to possess a treasure of foreign skills and customs that would enrich the resources of American living. #Quote by Rudolf Arnheim
Adapt quotes by Paulo Freire
#81. The more students work at storing the deposits entrusted to them, the less they develop the critical consciousness which would result from their intervention in the world as transformers of that world. The more completely they accept the passive role impressed on them, the more they tend simply to adapt to the world as it is and to the fragmented view of reality deposited in them. #Quote by Paulo Freire
Adapt quotes by Tara Palmatier
#82. A true victim does not relish the role of victim. They do not want to be perceived as victims, and they will do whatever they need to do to heal, adapt and move forward in their lives. #Quote by Tara Palmatier
Adapt quotes by Saoirse Ronan
#83. When I was younger and in primary school, I'd do maybe a film a year, and I had to adapt to being away from everyone for a couple of months. #Quote by Saoirse Ronan
Adapt quotes by Seth Grahame-Smith
#84. It was a really strange and unique sort of process for me to adapt my own book. #Quote by Seth Grahame-Smith
Adapt quotes by Charles Darwin
#85. Species that struggle to adapt to survive will become extinct #Quote by Charles Darwin
Adapt quotes by Sean Bean
#86. It took a while to adapt to life in London, but six months into my course at RADA, I felt very at home. #Quote by Sean Bean
Adapt quotes by Charles Baudelaire
#87. Who among us has not, in moments of ambition, dreamt of the miracle of a form of poetic prose, musical but without rhythm and rhyme, both supple and staccato enough to adapt itself to the lyrical movements of our souls, the undulating movements of our reveries, and the convulsive movements of our consciences? This obsessive ideal springs above all from frequent contact with enormous cities, from the junction of their innumerable connections. #Quote by Charles Baudelaire
Adapt quotes by Tucker Elliot
#88. It'd be easy to blame everything on 9/11 or the wars that came after. It's really about the choices we made. By necessity we adapt to the realities of the world we live in, but if we forget that how we live shapes and influences the world around us, then we've already lost. #Quote by Tucker Elliot
Adapt quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#89. Don't get older; get better: Live realistically. Give generously. Adapt willingly. Trust fearlessly. Rejoice daily. #Quote by Charles R. Swindoll
Adapt quotes by Girdhar Joshi
#90. We have a tendency to worship great people but do not adapt their ideas in our lives. #Quote by Girdhar Joshi
Adapt quotes by Debasish Mridha
#91. Most suffering comes from the failure to adapt and a resistance to change. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Adapt quotes by Christopher Jones
#92. When the world changes, you have to adapt and change with it. It's not just death and taxes that we can always count on in life ... add 'change' to that mix. No matter what, tomorrow will always be a little bit different than today ... #Quote by Christopher Jones
Adapt quotes by Lara Honos-Webb
#93. Some ADD adults adapt to the work world by allowing themselves to be pitifully underemployed. Rather than find a great match for their skills and interests, they will work at a job far below their natural abilities. In this way, their inevitable screwups and difficulties with following directions will be balanced by being more capable than those they work with. This strategy has its own set of painful problems. For one thing, knowing you could do and be more can lead to an enduring agony. For another, you may find yourself falling prey to negative feedback from people who aren't as smart as you are. Another strategy ADD adults sometimes adopt is to overcompensate, working inhuman hours to try to avoid possible criticism. It can be shattering when even this strategy doesn't prevent criticism from heading your way, whether from colleagues, bosses, or clients. Another problem with this strategy is that it can take a tremendous toll on your personal relationships. #Quote by Lara Honos-Webb
Adapt quotes by Steven Pinker
#94. Because much of the content of education is not cognitively natural, the process of mastering it may not always be easy and pleasant, notwithstanding the mantra that learning is fun. Children may be innately motivated to make friends, acquire status, hone motor skills, and explore the physical world, but they are not necessarily motivated to adapt their cognitive faculties to unnatural tasks like formal mathematics. A family, peer group, and culture that ascribe high status to school achievement may be needed to give a child the motive to persevere toward effortful feats of learning whose rewards are apparent only over the long term. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Adapt quotes by Michel Gondry
#95. I like actors who just are who they are, with a little bit of qualification to adapt to their character. But mostly they just use their own personality to embody the character. #Quote by Michel Gondry
Adapt quotes by Jason Luke
#96. The majority of us watch the world go by, and adapt to what life hands us, Jonah. But you're different. You can change your world. That seems like a wonderful gift, but I also think it's a heavy burden. #Quote by Jason Luke
Adapt quotes by Gavin Extence
#97. Because sometimes chance and circumstance can seem like the most appalling injustice, but we just have to adapt. That's all we can do. #Quote by Gavin Extence
Adapt quotes by Jacques Derrida
#98. The bricoleur, says Levi-Strauss, is someone who uses 'the means at hand,' that is, the instruments he finds at his disposition around him, those which are already there, which had not been especially conceived with an eye to the operation for which they are to be used and to which one tries by trial and error to adapt them, not hesitating to change them whenever it appears necessary, or to try several of them at once, even if their form and their origin are heterogenous - and so forth. There is therefore a critique of language in the form of bricolage, and it has even been said that bricolage is critical language itself ... If one calls bricolage the necessity of borrowing one's concepts from the text of a heritage which is more or less coherent or ruined, it must be said that every discourse is bricoleur. #Quote by Jacques Derrida
Adapt quotes by Louis L'Amour
#99. One learns to adapt to the land in which one lives. #Quote by Louis L'Amour

#100. Apart from finding a first job, college graduates seem to adapt more easily than those with only a high school degree as the economy evolves and labor-market needs change. #Quote by Derek Bok
Adapt quotes by Karen Russell
#101. I could have warned her. If we were back home, and Mirabella had come under attack by territorial beavers or snow-blind bears, I would have warned her. But the truth is that by Stage 3 I wanted her gone. Mirabella's inability to adapt was taking a visible toll. Her teeth were ground down to nubbins; her hair was falling out ... her ribs were poking through her uniform. Her bright eyes had dulled to a sour whiskey color. But you couldn't show Mirabella the slightest kindness anymore-she'd never leave you alone! #Quote by Karen Russell
Adapt quotes by Kerrigan Byrne
#102. She felt safe here in the arms of this dangerous man. It was like returning to a home that had been destroyed and rebuilt. The same bones, same structure, but a new core that felt more foreign than if you hadn't ever known it from before. Walls and obstacles constructed by hands that were not her own.
But it didn't matter to her. She'd learn this man he'd become, renovate with her love what could be improved upon, and accept and adapt to what she could not repair. #Quote by Kerrigan Byrne
Adapt quotes by Martin Wickramasinghe
#103. Tissa reflected that religion is divine poetry whilst morality is made up of customs and traditions that change with the place and the times. How do men who read the same books he reads, live on the same kind of food in the same world and social class, differ so much from him and from each other in mind and body? He concluded that his present state of body and mind that gives rise to his reflections cannot be just the outcome of books he read and the food he ate, nor his own efforts to adapt to his world and his social class. Human beings are born with an individuality that is unique to each, but this cannot be attributed to the presence or absence of a soul. The same individuality is there in each leaf, and one leaf differs from another. Yet all the leaves get the same nourishment from the roots of the tree, and the sun and the air. #Quote by Martin Wickramasinghe

Adapt quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#105. Man is an animal who more than any other can adapt himself to all climates and circumstances. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Adapt quotes by Mary Crocker Cook
#106. Avoiding awareness of our own reality is often an attempt to deny thoughts, desires, or intentions that we feel will threaten or contradict the needs of those with whom we feel strong attachment. We instinctively hide feelings and thoughts we assume would be threatening to other people, and might cause them to leave us. . . People who learned early in life to adapt to parental needs to an extent that we were unable to focus on our own developmental tasks and needs will often continue to play out this working mode" of conditional attachment. "You will attach to me as long as I meet your needs. #Quote by Mary Crocker Cook
Adapt quotes by Georges St-Pierre
#107. Dinosaurs were huge and powerful; they could not adapt and they died out. And so the big difference between dinosaurs and cockroaches is adaptability: one is able to adjust, while the other, apparently, couldn't ... The same analogy applies to fighting, and probably any other sport. It's not always the strong that survive. It takes brains, guts, tolerance and forward thinking. We've seen this since the beginning of mixed martial arts. #Quote by Georges St-Pierre

Adapt quotes by Michael Crichton
#112. But complex animals had obtained their adaptive flexibility at some cost
they had traded one dependency for another. It was no longer necessary to change their bodies to adapt, because now their adaptation was behavior, socially determined. That behavior required learning. In a sense, among higher animals adaptive fitness was no longer transmitted to the next generation by DNA at all. It was now carried by teaching. #Quote by Michael Crichton
Adapt quotes by Ernst Mach
#113. The presentations and conceptions of the average man of the world are formed and dominated, not by the full and pure desire for knowledge as an end in itself, but by the struggle to adapt himself favourably to the conditions of life. #Quote by Ernst Mach

Adapt quotes by Julius Evola
#116. The 'human' sense of life, so typical of the modern West, confirms its plebeian and lower aspect. That which some were ashamed of – 'man' – others took pride in. The ancient world elevated the individual to God, made every effort to unbind him from passion, to adapt him to transcendence, with free air of heights in contemplation as well as in action; it knew traditions of non-human heroes and of men of divine blood. The Semiticised world not only deprived the 'creature' of the divine, but finally reduced God to a human figure. Bringing back to life the demonism of a Pelasgian substratum, it substituted the pure Olympian regions, vertiginous in their radiant perfection, with the terrorist viewpoints of its apocalypses, of hells, of predestination, of perdition. God was no longer the aristocratic god of the Romans, the god pf patricians, to whom one prays standing, in the light of the fire, head up high and which is carried at the head of the victorious legions [...] #Quote by Julius Evola
Adapt quotes by Mary Shelly
#117. I recollected my threat and resolved that it should be accomplished. I knew that I was preparing for myself a deadly torture; but I was the slave, not the master, of an impulse which I detested, yet could not disobey. Yet when she died! - nay, then I was not miserable. I had cast off all feeling, subdued all anguish, to riot in the excess of my despair. Evil thenceforth became my good. Urged thus far, I had no choice but to adapt my nature to an element which I had willingly chosen. The completion of my demoniacal design became an insatiable passion. And now it is ended; there is my last victim! #Quote by Mary Shelly
Adapt quotes by Barbara Stocking
#118. Climate change is ... a gross injustice-poor people in developing countries bear over 90% of the burden-through death, disease, destitution and financial loss-yet are least responsible for creating the problem. Despite this, funding from rich countries to help the poor and vulnerable adapt to climate change is not even 1 percent of what is needed. #Quote by Barbara Stocking

Adapt quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#123. We all must determine what types of anatomical castanets vest in our central core. For aught we know, we still tend to think of ourselves as a complete and fixed product. In reality, analogous to an unfinished paper, working from the inside out, we are retooling ourselves every day whether we recognize the minor or major tinkering taking place or not. In a neurological sense, the brain is constantly working to build and rebuild itself. In a psychological sense, every day the human mind is altering who we are. We constantly take in new information that modifies and enhances our understanding of the world and our place in the environment. Every day we are using the sense of self and our accumulated knowledge to adapt to our world and modify our thinking and behavior. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Adapt quotes by E. O. Wilson
#124. I think we will make it. Because one quality people have - certainly Americans have it - is that they can adapt when they see necessity staring them in the face. What to avoid is what someone once called the definition of hell: truth realized too late. #Quote by E. O. Wilson
Adapt quotes by James Franco
#125. When I read the book [The Adderall Diaries] I loved it, and I maybe had an inkling that there was a lot of good material in there. I didn't quite know at the time how to adapt it into a film, but I hoped I would figure it out one day. #Quote by James Franco
Adapt quotes by Jason Farman
#126. Similarly, the computers used to run the software on the ground for the mission were borrowed from a previous mission. These machines were so out of date that Bowman had to shop on eBay to find replacement parts to get the machines working. As systems have gone obsolete, JPL no longer uses the software, but Bowman told me that the people on her team continue to use software built by JPL in the 1990s, because they are familiar with it. She said, "Instead of upgrading to the next thing we decided that it was working just fine for us and we would stay on the platform." They have developed so much over such a long period of time with the old software that they don't want to switch to a newer system. They must adapt to using these outdated systems for the latest scientific work.
Working within these constraints may seem limiting. However, building tools with specific constraints - from outdated technologies and low bitrate radio antennas - can enlighten us. For example, as scientists started to explore what they could learn from the wait times while communicating with deep space probes, they discovered that the time lag was extraordinarily useful information. Wait times, they realized, constitute an essential component for locating a probe in space, calculating its trajectory, and accurately locating a target like Pluto in space. There is no GPS for spacecraft (they aren't on the globe, after all), so scientists had to find a way to locate the spacecraft in the vast expanse. #Quote by Jason Farman
Adapt quotes by Jojo Moyes
#127. Don't you think it's actually harder for you . . . to adapt, I mean? Because you've done all that stuff?'
'Are you asking me if I wish I'd never done it?'
'I'm just wondering if it would have been easier for you. If you'd led a smaller life. To live like this, I mean.'
'I will never, ever regret the things I've done. Because most days, if you're stuck in one of these, all you have are the places n your memory that you can go to.' He smiled. It was tight, as if it cost him. 'So if you're asking me would I rather be reminiscing about the view of the caste from the minimart, or that lovely row of shops down off the roundabout, then, no. My life was just fine, thanks. #Quote by Jojo Moyes

Adapt quotes by Rebecca Gowers
#129. Adapt the atmosphere of your reply to suit that of the letter you have received. If its tone is troubled, be sympathetic. If it is rude, be especially courteous. If it is muddle-headed, be especially lucid. If it is stubborn, be patient. If your correspondent is helpful, be appreciative. If you find yourself convicted of a mistake, acknowledge it freely and even with gratitude. #Quote by Rebecca Gowers
Adapt quotes by Cindy Skaggs
#130. Hmm." Hell, he'd lost his voice. Maybe his capacity for thought. They were headed where his body had wanted her since the day they met. Blood surged to his groin, leaving his brain defenseless. "What's that?"

She rubbed a finger across his lower lip. "Do I make you nervous?"

She threw off his equilibrium, but he could work with that since he was trained to adapt to new and dangerous situations. He licked his lips, letting his tongue brush the finger she still pressed against him.

"I can handle you."

"Oh, sweetheart, I doubt it. #Quote by Cindy Skaggs
Adapt quotes by Irene Hunt
#131. Once again, both Chris and I were manipulated like small puppets in our world of adults. We didn't like it, and we suffered, but the tall ones around us said that we would soon get over our sadness, that we would "adapt" in a matter of weeks. #Quote by Irene Hunt
Adapt quotes by Kenneth H. Blanchard

Adapt quotes by Edith Wharton
#135. Her mind was as destitute of beauty and mystery as the prairie school-house in which she had been educated; and her ideals seemed to Ralph as pathetic as the ornaments made of corks and cigar-bands with which her infant hands had been taught to adorn it. He was beginning to understand this, and learning to adapt himself to the narrow compass of her experience. #Quote by Edith Wharton
Adapt quotes by Jake Vanderplas
#136. Due to the various pragmatic obstacles, it is rare for a mission-critical analysis to be done in the "fully Bayesian" manner, i.e., without the use of tried-and-true frequentist tools at the various stages. Philosophy and beauty aside, the reliability and efficiency of the underlying computations required by the Bayesian framework are the main practical issues. A central technical issue at the heart of this is that it is much easier to do optimization (reliably and efficiently) in high dimensions than it is to do integration in high dimensions. Thus the workhorse machine learning methods, while there are ongoing efforts to adapt them to Bayesian framework, are almost all rooted in frequentist methods. A work-around is to perform MAP inference, which is optimization based.
Most users of Bayesian estimation methods, in practice, are likely to use a mix of Bayesian and frequentist tools. The reverse is also true - frequentist data analysts, even if they stay formally within the frequentist framework, are often influenced by "Bayesian thinking," referring to "priors" and "posteriors." The most advisable position is probably to know both paradigms well, in order to make informed judgments about which tools to apply in which situations. #Quote by Jake Vanderplas

#137. It's fun to see how other artists adapt my work. #Quote by Brian Selznick
Adapt quotes by Erich Fromm
#138. A person who has not been completely alienated, who has remained sensitive and able to feel, who has not lost the sense of dignity, who is not yet "for sale", who can still suffer over the suffering of others, who has not acquired fully the having mode of existence - briefly, a person who has remained a person and not become a thing - cannot help feeling lonely, powerless, isolated in present-day society. He cannot help doubting himself and his own convictions, if not his sanity. He cannot help suffering, even though he can experience moments of joy and clarity that are absent in the life of his "normal" contemporaries. Not rarely will he suffer from neurosis that results from the situation of a sane man living in an insane society, rather than that of the more conventional neurosis of a sick man trying to adapt himself to a sick society. In the process of going further in his analysis, i.e. of growing to greater independence and productivity,his neurotic symptoms will cure themselves. #Quote by Erich Fromm
Adapt quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#139. Our way of get­ting nos­tal­gic for what we just threw in the trash, it's all be­cause we're afraid to evolve. Grow, change, lose weight, rein­vent our­selves. Adapt. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Adapt quotes by Yann Martel
#140. All living things contain a measure of madness that moves them in strange, sometimes inexplicable ways. This madness can be saving; it is part and parcel of the ability to adapt. Without it, no species would survive. #Quote by Yann Martel
Adapt quotes by Robin Sacredfire
#141. I'm not into writing many more books or more pages. My goal is to increase the value of each sentence I write. And for that, I have to just erase my past and bring only forward what matches the new me, things I can easily rewrite and adapt to my new perspective. #Quote by Robin Sacredfire
Adapt quotes by Caroline Kennedy
#142. When I was younger, I thought my task was to forge ahead and succeed as an individual. But growing older has helped me realize that our success lies in our relationships - with the family we are born into, the friends we make, the people we fall in love with, and the children we have. Sometimes we struggle, sometimes we adapt, and at other times we set a course for others to follow. We are all leaders and followers in our lives. We are constantly learning from and teaching one another. We learn, too, that the most important work is not done by those who seem the most important, but by those who care the most. #Quote by Caroline Kennedy
Adapt quotes by Claude Bernard
#143. We must alter theory to adapt it to nature, but not nature to adapt it to theory. #Quote by Claude Bernard
Adapt quotes by Vicente Del Bosque
#144. As with Cesc Fabregas, some players who go and play for foreign clubs improve on a cultural level. It makes them grow on many levels; intellectually, because you have to learn a new language and adapt to another culture, and on a footballing level too. #Quote by Vicente Del Bosque

Adapt quotes by Chad Hurley
#147. As you start building the product, don't assume that you know all the answers. Listen to the community and adapt. We had a lot of our own ideas about how the service would evolve. Coming from PayPal and eBay, we saw YouTube as a powerful way to add video to auctions, but we didn't see anyone using our product that way, so we didn't add features to support it. #Quote by Chad Hurley
Adapt quotes by Nahu Lanham
#148. Life is a self-correcting, negative regulatory system because it is always moving toward a specific target destination in the future. This target destination we call 'self preservation'.

Achieve this goal it must constantly reduce the probabilities that interfere with its movement toward that future target.

Hence, it conserves by self-regulating, like a thermostat set at a specific temperature, as it advances, all the while seeking to re-adapt in accordance with the changes it incurs.

Putting this principle to work in our daily life means learning to adapt to new information while always adhering to a basic plan that can, in general, be modified according to alterations in the data encountered.

Adapt quotes by Alija Izetbegovic
#152. The question is whether they can find a way out and remain what they are. To adapt themselves to real life, they borrow from each other. Christianity , which has become a church, began to talk about work, wealth, power, education, science, marriage, laws, social justice, and so forth. And materialism , on the other hand, which became socialism or an order, a state, speaks about humanism , morality, art, creation, justice, responsibility, freedom and so forth. #Quote by Alija Izetbegovic

Adapt quotes by Gertrude Stein
#158. The English language has been thrust upon Americans. And it is wrong. As static and immobile as are the English, just so ever-moving are Americans. Here is a huge country. Not a mere island. Naturally people move. And they need a moving language. A language that can interpret American life. Nouns and adjectives won't express American life. They are too weak, too immobile. But verbs, adverbs, prepositions and the like, ah, they are moving, just as Americans. Obviously we cannot suddenly junk the English language and adopt some other tongue. English is too connotative, too close to us. Our problem is to adapt the English language to American needs. To make it move with us Americans. That is the problem
to write things as they are, not as they seem. our aim must be not to explain things, but to write the thing itself, and thereby in itself be self explanatory. #Quote by Gertrude Stein
Adapt quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#159. Thus it is well to seem merciful, faithful, humane, sincere, religious, and also to be so; but you must have the mind so disposed that when it is needful to be otherwise you may be able to change to the opposite qualities. And it must be understood that a prince, and especially a new prince, cannot observe all those things which are considered good in men, being often obliged, in order to maintain the state, to act against faith, against charity, against humanity, and against religion. And, therefore, he must have a mind disposed to adapt itself according to the wind, and as the variations of fortune dictate, and, as I said before, not deviate from what is good, if possible, but be able to do evil if constrained. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Adapt quotes by Desiderius Erasmus
#160. Just as nothing is more foolish than misplaced wisdom, so too, nothing is more imprudent than perverse prudence. And surely it is perverse not to adapt yourself to the prevailing circumstances, to refuse 'to do as the Romans do,' to ignore the party-goer's maxium 'take a drink or take your leave,' to insist that the play should not be a play. True prudence, on the other hand, recognizes human limitations and does not strive to leap beyond them; it is willing to run with the herd, to overlook faults tolerantly or to share them in a friendly spirit. But, they say, that is exactly what we mean by folly. (I will hardly deny it
as long as they will reciprocate by admitting that this is exactly what is means to perform the play of life.) #Quote by Desiderius Erasmus
Adapt quotes by Christopher Isherwood
#161. Already she is adapting herself, as she will adapt herself to very new régime. This morning I even heard her talking reverently about 'Der Führer' to the porters' wife. If anybody were to remind her that, at the elections last November, she voted communist,she would probably deny it hotly, and in perfect good faith. She is merely acclimatizing herself, in accordance with a natural law, like an animal which changes its coat for the winter. Thousands of people like Frl. Schroeder are acclimatizing themselves. After all, whatever government is in power, they are doomed to live in this town. #Quote by Christopher Isherwood
Adapt quotes by James C. Collins
#162. It's more important than ever to define yourself in terms of what you stand for rather than what you make, because what you make is going to become outmoded faster than it has at any time in the past ... hang on to the idea of who you are as a company, and focus not on what you do, but on what you could do. By being really clear about what you stand for and why you exist, you can see what you could do with a much more open mind. You enhance your ability to adapt to change. #Quote by James C. Collins
Adapt quotes by N'Dia Rae
#163. Seasons change. Though humans are creatures of habit, we can easily adapt if we allow our minds to be like water. The people who have lived there can live elsewhere and will be okay. It's only when we hold onto the past that change becomes painful. #Quote by N'Dia Rae
Adapt quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#164. Theirs is the customary human reaction when confronted with innovation: to flounder about attempting to adapt old responses to new situations or to simply condemn or ignore the harbingers of change
a practice refined by the Chinese emperors, who used to execute messengers bringing bad news. The new technological environments generate the most pain among those least prepared to alter their old value structures. The literati find the new electronic environment far more threatening than do those less committed to literacy as a way of life. When an individual or social group feels that its whole identity is jeopardized by social or psychic change, its natural reaction is to lash out in defensive fury. But for all their lamentations, the revolution has already taken place. #Quote by Marshall McLuhan

Adapt quotes by Shailesh Rao
#167. Climate change is not a major issue because it will cause sea level rises or temperature increases, since we know how to live at higher elevations and regulate the temperature within our homes. It is a major issue because ecosystems are finding it difficult to adapt to the rapidity of the climate and environmental changes and are dying off, thereby accelerating the species extinction that is already underway due to our consumption habits. #Quote by Shailesh Rao
Adapt quotes by Andrew Ashling
#168. It's sobering really," she thought, "how easy it is to reduce a human being to the state of an animal. You just take away some paraphernalia like clothing and put him in another environment. I bet that if I were to keep him there for a few months he would simply adapt to the swine lifestyle. A pity, but I haven't got time to experiment. But a few days, well, they are necessary to take his hope away and mollify his spirit. #Quote by Andrew Ashling
Adapt quotes by Erik Pevernagie

Adapt quotes by Robert E. Svoboda
#171. You retain your health only so long as you are willing to forgive your stresses, shrug off adversity and adapt to new situations. Resistance to change always impedes the workings of your immunity. An old Sanskrit proverb tells us kshama chajanani: the essence of motherly love is forgiveness. Damage to the ahamkara-mother predisposes us to disease by weakening our innate forgiveness. #Quote by Robert E. Svoboda
Adapt quotes by Rodolfo Costa
#172. Learn to adapt. Things change, circumstances change. Adjust yourself and your efforts to what it is presented to you so you can respond accordingly. Never see change as a threat, because it can be an opportunity to learn, to grow, evolve and become a better person. #Quote by Rodolfo Costa
Adapt quotes by Alyson Noel
#173. Nothing in my life had prepared me for this.Not one single thing.I feel like a lad rat stuck in some horrible experiment meant to measure how I adapt to brutal forms of social segregation and weirdness.And the sad news is,I'm producing way below average results.
I stand to the side of the lunchroom or cafeteria,or whatever they call it.The vegetarian lunch Paloma packed with great love and care tightly clutched in my fist,though I've no clue as to where I'm supposed to go eat it.
Having already committed the most heinous crime of all by sitting at the wrong table, I'm not sure I'm up for trying again.I'm still shaken by the way those girls acted-so self-righteous and territorial,so burdened by my presence at the end of their bench.
It's the seniors' table, I was told. I have no right to sit there. Ever. And that includes holidays and weekends.
"Duly noted," I replied, grabbing my lunch and standing before them. "I'll do my best to steer clear of it on Christmas.Easter as well.Though Valentine's Day is a wild card I just can't commit to." And though it felt good at the time,I've no doubt it was a reckless act that only made things worse. #Quote by Alyson Noel

Adapt quotes by Don Young

Adapt quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#177. If thou findest in human life anything better than justice, truth, temperance, fortitude, and, in a word, anything better than thy own mind's self-satisfaction in the things which it enables thee to do according to right reason, and in the condition that is assigned to thee without thy own choice; if, I say, thou seest anything better than this, turn to it with all thy soul, and enjoy that which thou hast found to be the best. But if nothing appears to be better than the deity which is planted in thee, which has subjected to itself all thy appetites, and carefully examines all the impressions, and, as Socrates said, has detached itself from the persuasions of sense, and has submitted itself to the gods, and cares for mankind; if thou findest everything else smaller and of less value than this, give place to nothing else, for if thou dost once diverge and incline to it, thou wilt no longer without distraction be able to give the preference to that good thing which is thy proper possession and thy own; for it is not right that anything of any other kind, such as praise from the many, or power, or enjoyment of pleasure, should come into competition with that which is rationally and politically or practically good. All these things, even though they may seem to adapt themselves to the better things in a small degree, obtain the superiority all at once, and carry us away. But do thou, I say, simply and freely choose the better, and hold to it.- But that which is useful is the bett #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Adapt quotes by Jordan Spieth
#178. In greenside bunkers, the big thing is to adapt your stance to the shot. It's rare that you get a flat lie in the sand, so I make sure to align my body to the slope. Then I blast the ball out by splashing the sand underneath it. #Quote by Jordan Spieth
Adapt quotes by Jim C. Hines
#179. It's not like publishing is perfect. Far from it. The industry is struggling to adapt and survive, and it's incredibly frustrating trying to break in. #Quote by Jim C. Hines
Adapt quotes by Marie Brennan
#180. There are proverbs about frying pans and fires that I might have quoted to myself, but I preferred to adapt a different one to my purposes: better the devil that would attack everyone impartially than the devil specifically looking to kill us. #Quote by Marie Brennan
Adapt quotes by Alice Boyes
#181. Recognize the Value of Acting with Uncertainty

Anxiety and uncertainty don't always mean you should stay stuck on pause. If you're currently stuck in pause mode, and have been for a while, taking some action is usually better than taking no action. When you can recognize the value of acting with uncertainty, you'll help your brain start to interpret uncertainty as a positive or not-so-terrible state, rather than it causing your alarm bells to ring loudly. The following is a thought experiment that's aimed at helping you recognize the value of acting even when you don't feel 100% sure of what the outcome will be or the exact best way to proceed.
Experiment: What are some circumstances in which acting with less than 100% certainty of success might be the best option? For example, submitting an application for a grant that will take four hours to prepare. You estimate the likelihood of obtaining the grant is only 10%, but it will be worth $5,000 if you're successful. Or trying a $50-a-month service that multiple people you trust have recommended. Or spending $100 on paint and painting supplies to see if you like a new room color. You've been thinking for years that you want to break out of off-white. Try to come up with three examples of your own. If coming up with three examples is intimidating, come up with just one example. Remember: You can adapt these instructions to suit yourself. #Quote by Alice Boyes
Adapt quotes by Melanie Chisholm
#182. I swear in real life-probably too much-though I don't swear in front of my gran. We adapt to every situation. #Quote by Melanie Chisholm
Adapt quotes by Shilpa Menon
#183. Climate Change is a bit like our advanced societies. Too late to "fix." The only choice left is that we adapt to what we've created. #Quote by Shilpa Menon
Adapt quotes by Kevin Hart
#184. Genuinely love doing standup and I'm a comedian first, so for me what makes my standup special is the fact that I don't have to adapt or adjust. I am who I am. I appeal to everyone, hence in the movie doing a world tour. #Quote by Kevin Hart
Adapt quotes by Pearl Zhu
#185. The agile way is more adapt to changes but shall not lose the sight of big picture. #Quote by Pearl Zhu
Adapt quotes by Simon Collier
#186. While it cannot be denied that the state's enhanced role in the mid-twentieth century necessitated a larger bureaucracy, or that the officials of CORFO (for instance) served their country well, the suspicion remains that the expanded public administration was (to adapt the celebrated phrase about the British empire) in part a system of indoor relief for the Chilean middle class. #Quote by Simon Collier
Adapt quotes by Martin Luther
#187. At an earlier time there was no pleasure in the law for me. But now I find that the law is good and tasty, that it has been given to me so that I might live, and now I find my pleasure in it. Earlier, it told me what I ought to do. Now I begin to adapt myself to it. And for this I worship, praise, and serve God #Quote by Martin Luther
Adapt quotes by Friedrich Kittler
#188. After all, it is we who adapt to the machine. The machine does not adapt to us. #Quote by Friedrich Kittler
Adapt quotes by Paul Goodman
#189. ("Becoming cultured" and "being adjusted to the social group" are taken almost as synonymous.) Either way, it follows that you can teach people anything; you can adapt them to anything if you use the right techniques of "socializing" or "communicating." The essence of "human nature" is to be pretty indefinitely malleable. "Man," as C. Wright Mills suggests, is what suits a particular type of society in a particular historical stage.

Adapt quotes by Christopher Henry Dawson
#191. No culture is more striking than that of Eskimo peoples of the Arctic, which is remarkably ancient and stable, distinctive and highly specialized. It is a classical example of the way in which people can learn to adapt itself to a harsh and unfavorable environment by creating a specialized way of life adapted to its peculiar circumstances. Eskimo culture is a work of art (...) since it uses the poor material that nature provides with admirable skill and artifice in order to construct a social world which is the best of all possible worlds for the Eskimos - who call themselves Innuit. The Men. #Quote by Christopher Henry Dawson
Adapt quotes by Michael Greger
#192. You have to build up to green smoothies. Everyone loves fruit smoothies: you can add a handful of baby spinach to a fruit smoothie and may hardly even taste it. Next, try two. Slowly, your taste buds can adapt to more greens. #Quote by Michael Greger
Adapt quotes by Madeleine Bunting
#193. So far in facing this huge [peak oil] challenge, our political/economic system seems unable to cope with reality. We are forced to carry on living in an illusion that we have so much time to adapt to post-oil that we don't even need to be talking or thinking much about what a world without plentiful oil would look like. Reality has become too dangerous. #Quote by Madeleine Bunting
Adapt quotes by Debasish Mridha
#194. Be wise like water and adapt, adjust, and appreciate whomever you are with and wherever you are. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Adapt quotes by Mary Zimmerman
#195. I'm drawn to very large texts that are mammothly popular in different parts of the world but are almost unknown here [the USA]. They're safe bets; if they've been around for 2,000 years, there's a reason. It's often a title or just a phrase within the text that will compel me to adapt it. #Quote by Mary Zimmerman
Adapt quotes by Vinton Cerf
#196. I believe that the problem of global climate change will ultimately spur our global society to respond and while the condition does not appear to be reversible, we will find ways to adapt to it. #Quote by Vinton Cerf
Adapt quotes by John Connolly
#197. A book is a carrier, and the ideas contained within its covers are an infection waiting to be spread. They breed in men. They adapt according to the host. Books alter men, and men, in their turn, alter worlds. #Quote by John Connolly

#200. The emergence of new conflicts mean, that we will need to be more creative, in the use of our diplomatic tools. The demands for peace-keeping forces is likely to grow, and we need to increasingly adapt our forces to that challenge. #Quote by Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono
