Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Neal Stephenson
#1. And yet all the gold is in England, it is dug up from Portuguese and Spanish mines, but it flows by some occult power of attraction to the Tower of London." "Flows," Caroline repeated. "Flows, like a current." Sophie nodded. "And the English have grown so used to this that they use 'currency' as a synonym for money, as if no distinction need be observed between them. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Angela Davis
#2. I have a hard time accepting diversity as a synonym for justice. Diversity is a corporate strategy. #Quote by Angela Davis
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#3. Normally, anything done in the name of 'the kids' strikes me as either slightly sentimental or faintly sinister - that redolence of moral blackmail that adheres to certain charitable appeals and certain kinds of politician. (Not for nothing is baby-kissing the synonym for public insincerity.) #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#4. Renounce and give up. What did Christ say? "He that loseth his life for my sake shall find it." Again and again did he preach renunciation as the only way to perfection. There comes a time when the mind awakes from this long and dreary dream-the child gives up its play and wants to go back to its mother. Renunciation is not asceticism. Are all beggars Christ? Poverty is not a synonym for holiness; often the reverse. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Howard Jacobson
#5. Because art, for all its adventuresomeness, is also capable of being the most recidivist of human activities, forever falling back in reaction to what was itself a reaction to something else. #Quote by Howard Jacobson
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Mindy Kaling
#6. I think sometimes people think cheerful is a synonym for dumb, so no one is ever cheerful. #Quote by Mindy Kaling
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Ayn Rand
#7. Men have been taught that the ego is the synonym of evil, and selflessness the ideal of virtue. But the creator is the egotist in the absolute sense, and the selfless man is the one who does not think, feel, judge or act. These are functions of the self. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Satyendra Singh 'Shyamal'
#8. Tolerance is not a synonym of Weakness #Quote by Satyendra Singh 'Shyamal'
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Thorstein Veblen
#9. The ceremonial differentiation of the dietary is best seen in the use of intoxicating beverages and narcotics. If these articles of consumption are costly, they are felt to be noble and honorific. Therefore the base classes, primarily the women, practice an enforced continence with respect to these stimulants, except in countries where they are obtainable at a very low cost. From archaic times down through all the length of the patriarchal regime it has been the office of the women to prepare and administer these luxuries, and it has been the perquisite of the men of gentle birth and breeding to consume them. Drunkenness and the other pathological consequences of the free use of stimulants therefore tend in their turn to become honorific, as being a mark, at the second remove, of the superior status of those who are able to afford the indulgence. Infirmities induced by over-indulgence are among some peoples freely recognised as manly attributes. It has even happened that the name for certain diseased conditions of the body arising from such an origin has passed into everyday speech as a synonym for "noble" or "gentle". It is only at a relatively early stage of culture that the symptoms of expensive vice are conventionally accepted as marks of a superior status, and so tend to become virtues and command the deference of the community; but the reputability that attaches to certain expensive vices long retains so much of its force as to appreciably lesson the disapprobation visi #Quote by Thorstein Veblen
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Susan Cain
#10. A few things introverts are not: The word introvert is not a synonym for hermit or misanthrope. Introverts can be these things, but most are perfectly friendly. #Quote by Susan Cain
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Anne Rice
#11. Our language needs endless synonyms for beautiful; the eyes could see what the tongue cannot possibly describe. #Quote by Anne Rice
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by William Hope Hodgson
#12. There had stood a great house in the centre of the gardens, where now was left only that fragment of ruin. This house had been empty for a great while; years before his - the ancient man's - birth. It was a place shunned by the people of the village, as it had been shunned by their fathers before them. There were many things said about it, and all were of evil. No one ever went near it, either by day or night. In the village it was a synonym of all that is unholy and dreadful. #Quote by William Hope Hodgson
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Melissa Jensen
#13. Frankie had used one (reverently) to wipe his eyes.This specimen was old and soft,monogrammed with a J in the corner. "Makes it interesting," he told me once, after finding a box monogrammed with M for fifty cents at a sidewalk sale. "Was it Max or Michael? Maybe Marco..."
"Here," he said now. "You have lipstick halfway down to your chin."
Humiliated, I scrubbed at my face.
Frankie held out his hand, palm up. "Okay,let's have it." I pulled the tube out of my pocket. "Not really my thing, madam, but since I've seen what happens when you don't use a mirror..." I'm sure it helped that he was holding my face, but he read it like a pro. "You had a mirror."
"I did.I'm hopeless."
"Maybe.Open." He squinted as he filled in my upper lip. "I don't like this."
"The color? I knew it was too pink-"
"Quiet.You'll smear it.The color is fine. Better for Sienna, I'm sure..." He surveyed his handiwork. "I don't like that you're doing this for him."
"Don't start. I told you how nice he was."
"In excruciating detail."
Given, the post-Bainbridge family dinner e-mail to Frankie and Sadie had been long. But excrutiating stung, especially from the boy who'd used every possible synonym for hot in describing his Friday-night bookstore acquisition. No name, just detailed hotness and the play-by-play of their flirtation over the fantasy section. #Quote by Melissa Jensen
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Maria N. Todorova
#14. Balkanization.. had come to denote the parcelization of large & viable political units but also had become a synonym for a reversion to the tribal, the backward, the primitive, the barbarian. #Quote by Maria N. Todorova
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Philip Guedalla
#15. Greatness is so often a courteous synonym for great success. #Quote by Philip Guedalla
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Nicholas Meyer
#16. So the Lincoln movie gets trashed because Connecticut voted for the amendment - not to mention how the people in Connecticut feel - but there's a lot of that. And I think it precedes from a fundamental misunderstanding of cinema. They are entertainment. And I'd like to say that entertainment isn't a synonym for disposable or mindless or stupid. Hamlet? Pretty entertaining from where I come from. #Quote by Nicholas Meyer
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Richard Dawkins
#17. A theist believes in a supernatural intelligence who, in addition to his main work of creating the universe in the first place, is still around to oversee and influence the subsequent fate of his initial creation. In many theistic belief systems, the deity is intimately involved in human affairs. He answers prayers; forgives or punishes sins; intervenes in the world by performing miracles; frets about good and bad deeds, and knows when we do them (or even think of doing them). A deist, too, believes in a supernatural intelligence, but one whose activities were confined to setting up the laws that govern the universe in the first place. The deist God never intervenes thereafter, and certainly has no specific interest in human affairs. Pantheists don't believe in a supernatural God at all, but use the word God as a non-supernatural synonym for Nature, or for the Universe, or for the lawfulness that governs its workings. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Ted Gup
#18. You have tens, hundreds of thousands of people in government, and just as many among contractors, who feel totally comfortable writing at the top of the document "internal use only," "official use only," and a million other synonyms, all of which amount to "none of your business" to the public. #Quote by Ted Gup
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#19. Love is our highest word and the synonym for God. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Jarod Kintz
#20. Both sexes have assholes, and both sexes have nipples. Yet only asshole is a genderless derogatory term. In the name of equality and linguistic diversity, I'm going to start using the word nipple as a synonym for asshole. Example: "Bra, you're being an asshole." "Nah, bra, you're being the nipple. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Anonymous
#21. I started to get nervous when people began posting, on the public newsgroups, plot suggestions for future books and speculation about how characters would develop. The Net is still new, and it is big and it is public, and has brought with it new perceptions and problems. (One minor one is that people are out driving their language on a worldwide highway without passing a test. Take the word plagiarize. I know what it means. You know what it means. Lawyers certainly know what it means. But I have seen it repeatedly used as a synonym for research, parody, and reference, as #Quote by Anonymous
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Andre Brink
#22. Everything one used to take for granted, with so much certainty that one never even bothered to enquire about it, now turns out to be illusion. Your certainties are proven lies. And what happens if you start probing? Must you learn a wholly new language first?
'Humanity'. Normally one uses it as a synonym for compassion; charity; decency; integrity. 'He is such a human person.' Must one now go in search of an entirely different set of synonyms: cruelty; exploitation; unscrupulousness; or whatever? #Quote by Andre Brink
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by George Carlin
#23. Is there another word for synonym? #Quote by George Carlin
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by John Muir

Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Ayn Rand
#27. Observe, in politics, that the term extremism has become a synonym of "evil," regardless of the content of the issue (the evil is not what you are extreme about, but that you are "extreme" - i.e., consistent). #Quote by Ayn Rand
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#28. The commentator may be excused for repeating what he has stressed in his own books and lectures, namely that "offensive" is frequently but a synonym for "unusual;" and a great work of art is of course always original, and thus by its very nature should come more or less as a shocking surprise. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by John Muir
#29. No synonym for God is so perfect as Beauty. Whether as seen carving the lines of the mountains with glaciers, or gathering matter into stars, or planning the movements of water, or gardening - still all is Beauty! #Quote by John Muir
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Andre Pichot
#30. To deny the existence of races or to replace the word 'race' by a synonym, hoping to produce some effect on the question of racism, displays only bad faith and stupidity. #Quote by Andre Pichot
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Seth Rockman
#31. Too often capitalism appears as a synonym for market exchange and not as a political economy that dictated who worked where, on what terms, and to whose benefit. #Quote by Seth Rockman
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Washington Allston
#32. Reputation is but a synonym of popularity: dependent on suffrage, to be increased or diminished at the will of the voters. #Quote by Washington Allston
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Dava Sobel
#33. In the wake of the Longitude Act, the concept of "discovering the longitude" became a synonym for attempting the impossible. #Quote by Dava Sobel
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Gregory Schrempp
#34. Long a topic of interest for history and philosophy of science, the Copernican Revolution more recently has become a favorite symbol for popular science writers. This symbol is used in two main ways, both of which shade easily into the mythic. First, the Copernican Revolution is invoked to mark a point of grand transformation between anthropocentric and objective thinking. Second, many portrayals of the Copernican Revolution heroize its protagonist and ritualize his deed. The Copernican Revolution designates an alleged shift in worldview that took place in the past, but also a sort of personal microcosm of that event - a rite of passage that any mind aspiring to science must undergo. The term "myth" in some usages becomes a near-synonym for pre-Copernican thought - a definition that is maddeningly inadequate even though refreshingly concise. #Quote by Gregory Schrempp
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Jodi Picoult
#35. There is a reason the word belonging has a synonym for want at its center; it is the human condition. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Charles Handy
#36. Change is only another word for growth, another synonym for learning. #Quote by Charles Handy
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#37. To call the world God is not to explain it; it is only to enrich our language with a superfluous synonym. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
#38. Phoebe Hurty hired me to write copy for ads about teen aged clothes. I had to wear the clothes I praised. That was part of the job. And I became friends with her two sons, who were my age. I was over at their house all the time.

She would talk bawdily to me and her sons, and our girlfriends when we brought them around. She was funny. She was liberating. She taught us to be impolite in conversation not only about sexual matters, but about American history and famous heroes, about the distribution of wealth, about school, about everything.

I now make my living being impolite. I am clumsy at it. I keep trying to imitate the impoliteness which was so graceful in Phoebe Hurty. I think now that grace was easier for her than it is for me because of the mood of the Great Depression. She believed what so many Americans believed then: that the nation would be happy and just and rational when prosperity came.

I never hear that word anymore: Prosperity. It used to be a synonym for Paradise. And Phoebe Hurty was able to believe that the impoliteness she recommended would give shape to an American paradise.

Now her sort of impoliteness is in fashion. But nobody believes anymore in a new American paradise. I sure miss Phoebe Hurty. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Aleena Farrukh
#39. Fantasy Is just another synonym for "having-your-own-crazy-world-bcause-the-real-one-is-too-cynical-to-handle-your-craziness". #Quote by Aleena Farrukh
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Dean Koontz
#40. I said what might have been a bad word meaning excrement, but I hope that I used a polite synonym. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Timothy Snyder
#41. This is pluralism: not a synonym of relativism, but rather an antonym. Pluralism accepts the moral reality of different kinds of truth, but rejects the idea that they can all be placed on a single scale, measured by a single value. #Quote by Timothy Snyder
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Jennifer Echols
#42. The only people who ever called me were my dad, my brother, assorted Vaders to tell me to come early or late to work (including Sean, but he always sounded grumpy that he had to call me, so it wasn't as big a thrill as you'd think), Tammy to tell me to come early or late to tennis practice, and Frances. I glanced at the caller ID screen and clicked the phone on. "What's up, Fanny?"
From the time Mom died until I was eleven, Frances the au pair had hung out in the background of my life. Once Sean overheard someone calling her Fanny, whch apparently is a nickname for Frances. We found this shocking. I mean, who has a nickname that's a synonym for derriere? Who's named Frances in the first place? So the boys started calling her Fanny the Nanny. Then, Booty the Babysitter. Then, Butt I Don't Need a Governess. This had everything to do with the nickname Fanny and the fact that she tried not to get upset at being addressed in this undignified manner when she was trying to raise compassionate, responsible children. It had nothing to do with her having an outsized rumpus. Frances had a cute figure, if you could see it under all that hippie-wear. #Quote by Jennifer Echols
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Tim Ferriss
#43. Excitement is the more practical synonym for happiness, and it is precisely what you should strive to chase. It is the cure-all. #Quote by Tim Ferriss
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by John Galsworthy
#44. Wealth is a means to an end, not the end itself. As a synonym for health and happiness, it has had a fair trial and failed dismally. #Quote by John Galsworthy
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Arianna Huffington
#45. We'll have to reclaim the ward 'taxes.' Why has it become a synonym for 'evil'? I understand that no one likes to pay good money for nothing. But fire and police protection aren't nothing ... Roads, bridges, airports, and mass transit systems aren't nothing. National parks, clean air, and clear water aren't nothing. A safe food supply, functioning schools with well-trained teachers, and well-equipped hospitals aren't vaporous apparitions either. #Quote by Arianna Huffington
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Cory O'Brien
#46. Is it just me, or is spooge the single least attractive synonym for dickglue? #Quote by Cory O'Brien
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Robert Lane Greene
#47. Americans tend to use "nation" as a synonym for "country." But political scientists and historians, as well as many Europeans, tend to use the term for a much more specific phenomenon: a group of people who feel they belong together, whether they have a country of their own or not. #Quote by Robert Lane Greene
Adventuresomeness Synonym quotes by Theodore Levitt
#48. Ideation is not a synonym for innovation, conformity is not its simple antonym, and innovation is not the automatic consequence of "creative thinking.". #Quote by Theodore Levitt
