Alternate Reality quotes by Simon Bird

Alternate Reality quotes by Bo Bennett
#2. Not being in tune with your customers is like living in an alternate reality; the way you think your customers feel about your product is not always the same as what your customers really think about your product. #Quote by Bo Bennett

Alternate Reality quotes by Olivia Laing
#6. But already this isn't quite right. The first apartment I had wasn't on the island at all. It was in Brooklyn Heights, a few blocks away from where I would have been living in the alternate reality of accomplished love, the ghostly other life that haunted me for almost two full years. #Quote by Olivia Laing
Alternate Reality quotes by G. Ernest Smith

Alternate Reality quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#8. The only funny part about Colonial Dunsboro is maybe it's too authentic, but for all the wrong reasons. This whole crowd of losers and nutcases who hide out here because they can't make it in the real world, in real jobs - isn't this why we left England in the first place? To establish our own alternate reality. Weren't the Pilgrims pretty much the crackpots of their time? For sure, instead of just wanting to believe something different about God's love, the losers I work with want to find salvation through compulsive behaviors. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Alternate Reality quotes by Salman Rushdie
#9. Like everyone he knew, Luka possessed a wide assortment of pocket-sized alternate-reality boxes, and spent much of his spare time leaving his own world to enter the rich, colorful, musical, challenging universes inside these boxes, universes in which death was temporary (until you made too many mistakes and it became permanent) and a life was a thing you could win, or save up for, or just be miraculously granted because you happened to bump your head into the right brick, or eat the right mushroom, or pass through the right magic waterfall, and you could store up as many lives as your skill and good fortune could get you. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Alternate Reality quotes by Claire McCaskill
#10. There's nothing that irritates Americans more than the fact that some members of Congress think they are entitled to their own set of rules. And it's true - too many people in Washington live in an alternate reality. #Quote by Claire McCaskill
Alternate Reality quotes by Heidi Priebe
#11. We have to unclasp our palms and let go of every alternate reality where we're happier, stronger, brighter because of all the things we did differently. Those universes do not exist. But ours does. And it's okay here, if we open our eyes up and let it be. #Quote by Heidi Priebe
Alternate Reality quotes by Cynthia Sue Larson
#12. Quantum jumping is the process by which a person envisions some desired result or state of being that is different from the existing situation - and by clearly observing that possibility and supplying sufficient energy, makes a leap into that alternate reality. #Quote by Cynthia Sue Larson
Alternate Reality quotes by Elan Mastai
#13. We imagine all these postapocalyptic, class-stratified, new-world-order techno-futures. But actually the real world, the world we live in, this is the dystopia. #Quote by Elan Mastai
Alternate Reality quotes by Nathan Van Coops
#14. People say, 'Time heals all wounds.' That may be true, but relocating to an alternate reality can sure help too. -Excerpt from the journal of Dr. Harold Quickly, 1941 #Quote by Nathan Van Coops
Alternate Reality quotes by Nancy Kress
#15. Slipstream fiction is usually defined as fiction with a contemporary setting in which story elements are mimetic (that is, seem real) - except for one or two eerie strangenesses. Unlike outright fantasy, these are not explained or integrated into an alternate-reality setting. #Quote by Nancy Kress

Alternate Reality quotes by Kathy Sierra
#17. The best user experiences are enchanting. They help the user enter an alternate reality, whether it's the world of making music, writing, sharing photos, coding, or managing a project. #Quote by Kathy Sierra
Alternate Reality quotes by Francine Pascal
#18. Everything works out for the best. It's one of those things we say to comfort ourselves. A phrase that gets repeated so often we cease to question the absence of logic inherent in the statement. Since we have no way of knowing what the alternate reality might have been, we have no way of knowing if things worked out of the best or not. #Quote by Francine Pascal
Alternate Reality quotes by Aaron Starmer
#19. She clued me in to the idea of alternate realities. Like, there are infinite versions of the world. Each a bit different. Existing, I don't know where...somewhere. And an alternate reality is created every time we make a choice. #Quote by Aaron Starmer
Alternate Reality quotes by Brian Molko
#20. There's a difference between 'glamour' and 'glam rock'. Glam rock, to me, is a bunch of straight, hairy, football-liking lager lads dressed up in mother's castoffs and glamour is a certain sophistication, a certain other-worldliness, a certain unattainableness, which I think we certainly calculate. We believe that a band should be slightly larger than life - you should be transported to an alternate reality. I'm giving you some really good answers here, I'm very proud of myself. #Quote by Brian Molko
Alternate Reality quotes by Deb Caletti
#21. The hope was, people like me got to finally find our place in college or in the actual world. People who understood this told you that high school wasn't the actual world, that it was more like a temporary alternate reality you were forced to believe in for four years. A video game you played, where you could never get to the next level no matter how hard you tried. #Quote by Deb Caletti
Alternate Reality quotes by D.W. Beam
#22. Did I imagine all this? People are shooting at me! My job blew up, and I just watched myself exit my own room! This has been one day I will never forget! #Quote by D.W. Beam
Alternate Reality quotes by Paul Dano
#23. I think it is important to make sure that I have my real life as well, because Hollywood can certainly seem like an alternate reality sometimes. #Quote by Paul Dano
Alternate Reality quotes by Steve Schmidt
#24. In a social media age, it seems that everyone lives in their own reality and that when you give consideration to Newt Gingrich, he exists in an alternate reality, at some level, where the things he says are so diametrically opposed to the record. #Quote by Steve Schmidt
Alternate Reality quotes by Lawrence Weiner
#25. In my work, it's simultaneously realities, instead of parallel. Simultaneous avoids the problem of alternate reality. In parallel reality, there's always a hierarchy, and there doesn't necessarily have to be a hierarchy. When you're in a palace like Blenheim, you're supposed to be in awe - why not be in awe of something different than the stuff they're showing you? It's about finding your own existential place. #Quote by Lawrence Weiner
Alternate Reality quotes by Mary E. Hunt
#26. We don't have all the answers. Perhaps prayer is simply a time we set aside to acknowledge that reality. #Quote by Mary E. Hunt
Alternate Reality quotes by Toni Bernhard
#27. People may think you're giving up, when in fact you are simply giving in to the reality of your new life #Quote by Toni Bernhard
Alternate Reality quotes by Scott Adams
#28. Every generation before us believed, like Snickers, that it had things figured out. We now know that every generation before us was wrong about a lot of it. Is it likely that you were born at the tipping point of history, in which humans know enough about reality to say we understand it? This is another case where humility is your friend. #Quote by Scott Adams
Alternate Reality quotes by Unarine Ramaru
#29. The sad reality of Mankind: Faith is the currency people trade in, through their ego and selfish ways. #Quote by Unarine Ramaru
Alternate Reality quotes by Leonard S. Newman
#30. Often we believe certain things to be true simply because most, if not all, of the people around us believe and/or assert them to be true. With­ out any direct means to assess the validity of such beliefs, we infer their va­lidity based on consensus. Once we have these beliefs, and find that they are shared quite liberally within our social networks, we take them for granted and rarely think about them as needing validation. Moscovici (1984) has re­ferred to such generally shared beliefs as "social representations." Such shared beliefs form the basis of a social aggregate's shared reality and are often used to justify or substantiate other related beliefs or opinions. #Quote by Leonard S. Newman
Alternate Reality quotes by Ian McEwan
#31. It's a matter of dishonour, and when it gets out, which it's bound to, this will be the one act you'll be remembered for. Everything else you achieved will be irrelevant. Your reputation will rest only on this, because ultimately reality is social, it's among others that we have to live and their judgements matter. - Pg. 198 #Quote by Ian McEwan
Alternate Reality quotes by Liv Ullmann
#32. Reality can be magnificent even when life is not. #Quote by Liv Ullmann
Alternate Reality quotes by Erik Lenderman
#33. God would be knowable as an infinite progression from ignorance into higher levels of knowledge and insight about the nature of self and reality. #Quote by Erik Lenderman
Alternate Reality quotes by Thanha Rahman
#34. A book a day keeps the reality away! #Quote by Thanha Rahman
Alternate Reality quotes by William Ralph Inge
#35. True faith is belief in the reality of absolute values. #Quote by William Ralph Inge
Alternate Reality quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#36. The principle of majority does not work when differences on fundamentals are involved. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Alternate Reality quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#37. Words, no matter whether they are vocalized and made into sounds or remain unspoken as thoughts, can cast an almost hypnotic spell upon you. You easily lose yourself in them, become hypnotized into implicitly believing that when you have attached a word to something, you know what it is. The fact is: You don't know what it is. You have only covered up the mystery with a label. Everything, a bird, a tree, even a simple stone, and certainly a human being, is ultimately unknowable. This is because it has unfathomable depth. All we can perceive, experience, think about, is the surface layer of reality, less than the tip of an iceberg. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Alternate Reality quotes by Paula Fox
#38. There was no way to grasp the reality of the present which slid away each second, invisible as air; reality only existed after the fact, in one's vision of the past. #Quote by Paula Fox
Alternate Reality quotes by Guy Lozier
#39. Reality is infinitely complex, yet it is designed to experience in simplicity. #Quote by Guy Lozier
Alternate Reality quotes by H.D.
#40. There was a zone she had not explored. She could use the same counter, the same sort of password that she used with all these people, but she had passed over in the twinkling of an eye into another forest. This forest was reality. There, the very speaking of the words, conjured up answering sigil, house and barn and terrace and castle and river and little plum tree. A whole world was open. She looked in through a wide doorway. #Quote by H.D.
Alternate Reality quotes by Ludwig Feuerbach
#41. A word is an abstract image, the imaginary thing, or, in so far as everything is ultimately an object of the thinking power, it is the imagined thought: hence men, when they know the word, the name for a thing, fancy that they know the thing also. #Quote by Ludwig Feuerbach
Alternate Reality quotes by John Dewey
#42. Social engaged intellectuals must accept reality as they found it and shape it toward positive social goals, not stand aside in self-righteous isolation. #Quote by John Dewey
Alternate Reality quotes by Benedict Jacka
#43. For years I'd been trying to forget ... , locking it up and burying it deep in my memory. The journey ... had shattered that, bringing it all back - but now that I'd faced it, I found to my surprise that the fear had been worse than the reality. #Quote by Benedict Jacka
Alternate Reality quotes by Eric J. Bargerhuff
#44. So the popular notion that "God will never give us more than we can handle" is in reality a blatant falsehood - a lie. He will give us more than we can handle, and this for the express purpose of bringing us to the end of ourselves so that we realize our very life, breath, and sustaining power comes only from God all the time. Jesus clearly said, "Apart from me you can do nothing" (John 15:5). #Quote by Eric J. Bargerhuff
Alternate Reality quotes by Khadija Rupa
#45. She was a wonderful teenage girl who had the miraculous power to cure herself from any wound, either physical or mental. With her own salty tears, she would cleanse her raw wounds. And her breaths were given, as though not to breathe but, rather, to fan her sores. #Quote by Khadija Rupa
Alternate Reality quotes by Jodi Picoult
#46. People always want to know what it feels like, so I'll tell you: there's a sting when you first slice, and then your heart speeds up when you see the blood, because you know you've done something you shouldn't have, and yet you've gotten away with it. Then you sort of go into a trance, because it's truly dazzling - that bright red line, like a highway route on a map that you want to follow to see where it leads. And - God - the sweet release, that's the best way I can describe it, kind of like a balloon that's tied to a little kid's hand, which somehow breaks free and floats into the sky. You just know that balloon is thinking, Ha, I don't belong to you after all; and at the same time, Do they have any idea how beautiful the view is from up here? And then the balloon remembers, after the fact, that it has a wicked fear of heights.
When reality kicks in, you grab some toilet paper or a paper towel (better than a washcloth, because the stains don't ever come out 100 percent) and you press hard against the cut. You can feel your embarrassment; it's a backbeat underneath your pulse. Whatever relief there was a minute ago congeals, like cold gravy, into a fist in the pit of your stomach. You literally make yourself sick, because you promised yourself last time would be the last time, and once again, you've let yourself down. So you hide the evidence of your weakness under layers of clothes long enough to cover the cuts, even if it's summertime and no one is wearing jeans or l #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Alternate Reality quotes by L. Scott Ward
#47. Welcome to the Carnival of Life, where dreams are a reality and reality is dreams gone mad. #Quote by L. Scott Ward
Alternate Reality quotes by Don DeLillo
#48. When I work, I'm just translating the world around me in what seems to be straightforward terms. For my readers, this is sometimes a vision that's not familiar. But I'm not trying to manipulate reality. This is just what I see and hear. #Quote by Don DeLillo
Alternate Reality quotes by Natsuo Kirino
#49. In reality of everyday occurrences I've had to submit to people in order not to lose them. It's less the submission that bothers me, I guess, than how it makes my life miserable. And what happens if I can't forgive myself for making that choice? And what if, in order to keep on living, I have to continue to accept myself? What am I supposed to do? Conclusion: It'd be best if I'm destroyed. The best thing is for me just to vanish. #Quote by Natsuo Kirino
Alternate Reality quotes by Rebecca Zanetti
#50. Livy." His voice deepened to nearly guttural. Desire unfurled in her abdomen. Then reality slammed her in the face.
"Are you glamoring me?" she asked, anger rippling along her skin.
His eyebrows drew down. "Glamoring?"
"Yeah. What vampires do." She put her hands on her hips. "Making me want you."
He chuckled again. "Oh, you want me, and it's all you. There's no such thing as glamoring."
Truth. She opened her senses, and he was definitely telling the truth. "Oh. #Quote by Rebecca Zanetti
Alternate Reality quotes by J.B.Alves
#51. You proudly said. We are Humans! In reality, we are a bunch of sarcastic, selfish and stupid well-intentioned creatures without any remorse for anything. So, think again about your pride and become, at least, more humble. #Quote by J.B.Alves
Alternate Reality quotes by Martijn Benders
#52. I was born into a world full of 'specialists'. I'm not sure whether it's the result of our education system or just natural entropy, but it's very uncommon to know a poet with even a mediocre knowledge about art, or an artist with a good taste in poetry, and so on and on. What this really is: lack of general education in a structural sense: god knows how many people I've met that are actually PROUD about proclaiming their ignorance about another field: it is as if it signifies their 'devotion to one path' while in reality they really only look like a buffoon if you ask me. New is that I am encountering 'Literary Critics' that proudly proclaim to 'never have read any foreign poetry' as if a 'movie critic' that only has watched Dutch films would be somehow capable of criticizing them in any true sense of the word. #Quote by Martijn Benders
Alternate Reality quotes by Jean Cocteau
#53. True realism consists in revealing the surprising things which habit keeps covered and prevents us from seeing. #Quote by Jean Cocteau
Alternate Reality quotes by Tero Auvinen
#54. Yet a much more fundamentally political dimension of the socially constructed nature of capital - nothing less than the specification of a parallel universe with its own natural laws and rules for the physical existence and subsistence of financial capital and its interaction with the other factors of production - has also often been overlooked in contemporary academic literature. Under the current monetary arrangements financial capital is a peculiar creature indeed. Money can be created ex nihilo at the stroke of a pen - or a keyboard - by a specific type of legal person entrusted with the task, not other legal or natural person. With the socially constructed ability to attract compound interest in a world where physical assets rot and break, it does not share the same physical reality with the mere mortal factors of production: even in cases where productive investments which enable the payment of interest in real terms can be identified, the compounding of interest on financial capital is not temporally limited to the period that the relevant physical assets can continue to produce exponential returns in real terms. Rather than representing accumulated wealth that could be "saved" to finance investment, the bulk of money disappears as soon as other factors of production are not willing to pay a tribute to induce its continuing circulation in the form of interest payments. In addition to the inherently political nature of specifications of money have been detached from vir #Quote by Tero Auvinen
Alternate Reality quotes by Agnes Bruckner
#55. I'm a huge gamer! I love playing 'World of Warcraft.' It helps me wind down and escape reality for a few. #Quote by Agnes Bruckner
Alternate Reality quotes by Phil McGraw
#56. Reality check: you can never, ever, use weight loss to solve problems that are not related to your weight. At your goal weight or not, you still have to live with yourself and deal with your problems. You will still have the same husband, the same job, the same kids, and the same life. Losing weight is not a cure for life. #Quote by Phil McGraw
