Asks quotes by Rachel Caine
#1. As she turned to concentrate on the portal, Eve tugged on Claire's shirt. "What?"
"Ask him where he got the boots."
"You ask." Personally, Claire wanted the vampire bunny slippers. #Quote by Rachel Caine
Asks quotes by Josh Hatcher
#2. What we need to do is treat some of our thoughts like door to door salesmen. If someone comes to your door and asks if he can come inside and throw some dirt on your floor to demonstrate his vaccuum cleaner - you would probably tell him "No thanks! See you later!" And yet - if a friend stopped by with a meatloaf and wanted to visit - we'd say "Come on in!" We need to stop being PASSIVE about what thoughts can take residence in our head. #Quote by Josh Hatcher
Asks quotes by Kristi Cook
#3. You want to do what?" Ryder asks, his voice laced with disbelief.
I take a deep breath before answering. "I want to go to film school next year. In New York City. Instead of Ole Miss," I clarify, in case he doesn't get it.
His gaze meets mine, and I expect to see judgment there in his eyes. I brace for the criticism, for the rebuke that's sure to follow my declaration.
Instead, his eyes seem to light with something resembling…admiration? "Seriously, Jem? That's awesome," he says, smiling now. His dimples flash, the fear seemingly vanished from his face.
"You really think so?" I ask hesitantly. "I mean, I know it seems a little crazy. I've never even been to New York before."
"So?" He scoots closer, so close that I can smell his now-familiar scent--soap and cologne mixed with rain. "If anyone can take care of themselves, you can." He rakes a hand through his dark hair. "Damn, Jemma, you just shot a cottonmouth clean through the head. New York will be a cakewalk after that."
A smile tugs at the corners of my mouth. "Well…it's not exactly the same thing. I won't be…you know…shootin' stuff up there. #Quote by Kristi Cook
Asks quotes by Michael Moore
#4. I ask all Americans with a conscience to shun anything and everything to do with the murderous state of Georgia. #Quote by Michael Moore
Asks quotes by Charles Kettering
#5. People think of the inventor as a screwball, but no one ever asks the inventor what he thinks of other people. #Quote by Charles Kettering
Asks quotes by Pope Francis
#6. Today let us all ask ourselves whether we are afraid of what God might ask, or of what he does ask ... Do I truly let God into my life? How do I answer him? #Quote by Pope Francis
Asks quotes by Michael Morpurgo
#7. That's what sailing is, a dance, and your partner is the sea. And with the sea you never take liberties. You ask her, you don't tell her. You have to remember always that she's the leader, not you. You and your boat are dancing to her tune. #Quote by Michael Morpurgo
Asks quotes by Raymond D. Longoria Jr.
#8. One day a boy asked his father, "What is the value of this life?" Instead of answering, the father told his son, "Take this rock and go offer it at a market, however do not accept any offer and bring the rock back to me. If anybody asks the price, raise two fingers and don't say anything."The boy then went to the market and a man asked,"How much is this rock? I want to put it in my garden." The boy didn't say anything and raised two fingers, so the man said… "$2? I'll take it." And the boy went home and told his father, "A man at the market wants to buy this rock for $2." The father then said, "Son I want you to take this rock to the museum, and if you are asked the price, raise two fingers and don't say a word." The boy then went to the museum, and quickly a man wanted to buy the rock, The boy didn't say anything and raised two fingers and the man said… "$200? I'll take it." The boy was shocked and went running home with the rock in hand, "Father a man wants to buy this rock for $200." His father then said, "There is one last place I'd like you to offer this rock, take it to the precious stone store and show it only to the owner and don't say a word, if he asks the price raise two fingers." The son then went to the precious stone store and showed the rock to the owner. "Where did you find this?" The owner asked, "This is a most precious unpolished gem, one of the most valuable in the whole world, I must have it. What price would you take for it?" The boy didn't say anything #Quote by Raymond D. Longoria Jr.
Asks quotes by Annie Dillard
#9. The soul may ask God for anything, and never fail. #Quote by Annie Dillard
Asks quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#10. Where are Sam and Grace?"
"Ringo left in his car a few hours ago. He must've taken Grace with him. I don't know where they went."
"You didn't ask?"
"We're not married" Cole said, and added, in a more humble tone, "yet". #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Asks quotes by Iris Blaire
#11. How do you know she had sex?" Dallas asks.
"Every time a penis touches Britain, I receive a telepathic notification."
"Oh," Dallas says with a straight face. "Well that explains a lot. #Quote by Iris Blaire
Asks quotes by Frederick Weisel
#12. Of course, when you fall out of love, it's rarely about just one failure or one betrayal, is it? ...
How does it happen? All those things you once loved about each other are replaced by other things that remind you of something you hate until you're always setting each other off, and what you share is a battleground. In the end, the failure turns out to be less about sex - which surprises most men - and more about loss of respect. One morning your partner looks at you across the bed and wonders at the waywardness of her own heart - how, she asks herself, can she feel such disdain for someone she once felt such love? #Quote by Frederick Weisel
Asks quotes by Marsha Norman
#13. Jesus was a suicide, if you ask me. #Quote by Marsha Norman
Asks quotes by Michael Connelly
#14. I've learned over the years that sometimes if you ask the same question more than once you get different responses. #Quote by Michael Connelly
Asks quotes by Guy Finley
#15. The next time you catch yourself starting to feel bad about anything, immediately stop everything you are doing for a moment and, as simply and as honestly as you can, ask yourself: Is this what I really want? #Quote by Guy Finley
Asks quotes by Laura Kreitzer
#16. It hurts," Summer cries, head shaking back and forth. "Please, make it stop." Sweat beads on her forehead.
"What hurts?" Cameron asks.
"My eyes."
Summer's eyes open. Everyone gasps. They're no longer blue; they appear bionic, like a circuit board's inside her eyes. Panicked now, Summer reaches for her face. "What is it? What's wrong? #Quote by Laura Kreitzer
Asks quotes by Ayn Rand
#17. Ask yourself whether the dream of heaven and greatness should be left waiting for us in our graves-or whether it should be ours here and now and on this earth. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Asks quotes by Mike Mills
#18. If you ask me, the place that a story happens is as equal character. It's almost like an ecological viewpoint: These people are living in this piece of land, and in this piece of land in this time this is possible. For me, I almost think location first. It's time first - what year is it - then where are we, and then who is in it. #Quote by Mike Mills
Asks quotes by Mark Nepo
#19. We are all continually asked to learn how to ask for what we need, only to practice accepting what we're given. #Quote by Mark Nepo
Asks quotes by Josh Hanagarne
#20. The mind that asks and experiments and evaluates will die one day, but will provide a richer life for its owner. The mind that does nothing but rest inside the brain doesn't sidestep the puddle. It's sitting in it. #Quote by Josh Hanagarne
Asks quotes by Jacob Dalton
#21. Everybody always asks me, 'How much can you bench?' I'm like, 'I don't know. I don't lift weights.' Now that I'm in college, we lift weights every once in a while, but not maxing out. We do things with a weight vest on ... That surprises people, too, how strong you can get by just basically lifting your body all the time. #Quote by Jacob Dalton
Asks quotes by Jackee Harry
#22. Well, there's no other person like me. Ain't nobody else like me. It's flattering. I don't like to do it too much because I get tired of me. But people ask, so I get to do it every now and then. #Quote by Jackee Harry
Asks quotes by Donny Deutsch
#23. When you see someone who has turned his passion into a profit, ask yourself, 'Why not me? #Quote by Donny Deutsch
Asks quotes by Edith Wharton
#24. If the ability to read carries the average man no higher than the gossip of his neighbours, if he asks nothing more nourishing out of books and the theatre than he gets hanging about the store, the bar and the street-corner, then culture is bound to be dragged down to him instead of his being lifted up by culture. #Quote by Edith Wharton
Asks quotes by Ernest Kurtz
#25. The question "Who am I?" really asks, "Where do I belong or fit?" We get the sense of that "direction" -- the sense of moving toward the place where we fit, or of shaping the place toward which we are moving so that it will fit us -- from hearing how others have handled or are attempting to handle similar (but never exactly the same) situations. We learn by listening to their stories, by hearing how they came (or failed) to belong or fit. #Quote by Ernest Kurtz
Asks quotes by Jim Butcher
#26. I ask people impertinent questions. Hopefully turning up pertinent answers. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Asks quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#27. The first sign of love is when love asks nothing, [when it] gives everything. This is the real spiritual worship, the worship through love. Whether God is merciful is no longer questioned. He is God; He is my love. Whether God is omnipotent and almighty, limited or unlimited, is no longer questioned. If He distributes good, all right; if He brings evil, what does it matter? All other attributes vanish except that one-infinite love. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Asks quotes by Pico Iyer
#28. For more and more of us, home has really less to do with a piece of soil than, you could say, with a piece of soul. If somebody suddenly asks me, 'Where's your home?' I think about my sweetheart or my closest friends or the songs that travel with me wherever I happen to be. #Quote by Pico Iyer
Asks quotes by Nachman Of Breslov
#29. Don't ask God to change the laws of nature for you. #Quote by Nachman Of Breslov
Asks quotes by Payne Stewart
#30. If somebody asks for my opinion, I tell them my opinion, whether it's what they want to hear or not. #Quote by Payne Stewart
Asks quotes by William J. Bernstein
#31. You have to ask yourself, what are the things that matter to you most in your life? If you have to have a latte every day that'snice to have right now, but if you take that latte every day right now, you may wind up eating cat food when you are 70. And you have to decide which is worse. #Quote by William J. Bernstein
Asks quotes by John F. Kennedy
#32. Don't ask 'Why', ask instead, 'Why not'. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Asks quotes by Gwendolyn Brooks
#33. We don't ask a flower any special reason for its existence. We just look at it and are able to accept it as being something different from ourselves. #Quote by Gwendolyn Brooks
Asks quotes by Michelle Obama
#34. As a mom, I know it is my responsibility, and no one else's, to raise my kids. But we have to ask ourselves, what does it mean when so many parents are finding their best efforts undermined by an avalanche of advertisements aimed at our kids. #Quote by Michelle Obama
Asks quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#35. His guilt is why Acheron went out of his way to make sure that all of you had servants and pay for your work. The Dark-Hunters owe that man everything, and I do mean everything. He pays in blood every time one of you wants to go free, and he suffers every day so that you can all live your cushy little lives of wealth and privilege."
...
"And I have to say that every time one of your turns on him, it seriously pisses me off. Acheron asks nothing from any of you and that's exactly what he receives. #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Asks quotes by Veronica Rossi
#36. Liv or love?" she asks. I brush her hair away from her neck and rest my hand there, feeling the beating of her pulse. "Either," I answer. "They're the same to me. #Quote by Veronica Rossi
Asks quotes by Dennis Prager
#37. The next time your daughter asks, 'Where are all the men?' Tell them that the Democratic party and its policies got rid of them' #Quote by Dennis Prager
Asks quotes by Bashar Al-Assad
#38. When we analyze this war in a materialistic way and ask when is it going to end and who will be the winner and the loser, it means that we do not see the endgame. #Quote by Bashar Al-Assad
Asks quotes by Walter Mosley
#39. These short stories are vast structures existing mostly in the subconscious of our cultural history. They will live with the reader long after the words have been translated into ideas and dreams. That's because a good short story crosses the borders of our nations and our prejudices and our beliefs. A good short story asks a question that can't be answered in simple terms. And even if we come up with some understanding, years later, while glancing out of a window, the story still has the potential to return, to alter right there in our mind and change everything. #Quote by Walter Mosley
Asks quotes by Alfonso Maria De Liguori
#40. But what could have ever induced a God to die as a malefactor upon a cross between two sinners, with such insult to his divine majesty? "Who did this?" asks St.Bernard; he answers, "It was love, careless of its dignity." Ah, love indeed, when it tries to make itself known, does not seek what is becoming to the dignity of the lover, but what will serve best to declare itself to the object loved. St. Francis of Paula therefore had good reason to cry out at the sight of a crucifix, "O love, O love, O love!" And in like manner, when we look upon Jesus on the cross, we should all exclaim, O love, O love, O love! Ah, #Quote by Alfonso Maria De Liguori
Asks quotes by Philippa Gregory
#41. It matters not at all that I do not want to marry, that I am afraid of the wedding, afraid of consummating the marriage, afraid of childbirth, afraid of everything about being a wife. Nobody even asks if I have lost my childhood sense of vocation, if I still want to be a nun. Nobody cares what I think at all. They treat me like an ordinary young woman, bred for wedding and bedding, and since they do not ask me what I think, nor observe what I feel, there is nothing that gives them pause at all. #Quote by Philippa Gregory
Asks quotes by Simone Elkeles
#42. Marry me, Kiara," he blurts out in front of everyone.
"Why?" she asks, challenging him.
"Because I love you," he says, walking up to her and bending down on one knee while he takes her hand in his, "and I want to go to sleep with you every night and wake up seein' your face every mornin', I want you to be the mother of my children, I want to fix cars with you and eat your crappy tofu tacos that you think are Mexican. I want to climb mountains with you and be challenged by you, I want to argue with you just so we can have crazy hot makeup sex. Marry me, because without you I'd be six feet under ... and because I love your family like they're my own ... and because you're my best friend and I want to grow old with you." He starts tearing up, and it's shocking because I've never seen him cry. "Marry me, Kiara Westford, because when I got shot the only thing I was thinkin' about was comin' back here and makin' you my wife. Say yes, chica. #Quote by Simone Elkeles
Asks quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#43. I would beseech you not only to be pure beyond suspicion but I would ask you to combine with stainless purity, great wisdom and great ability. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Asks quotes by Jonathan Lethem
#44. I don't really ask of myself a given word or page count or number of hours. To work every day, that's my only fetish. And there is a physical quality to it when a novel is thriving. #Quote by Jonathan Lethem
Asks quotes by Katherine Anne Porter
#45. Life comes first, an art not rooted in human experience is not worth a damn, but different kinds of minds have different kinds of experience, and all I ask of any man is validity; and there should be place for every type and kind of mind. #Quote by Katherine Anne Porter
Asks quotes by Mary Elizabeth
#46. Don't you get it, baby?"
"What's there to get?" she asks.
"That I love you."
"Well, you have a shitty way of showing it.
I smirk. "That doesn't make it any less true. #Quote by Mary Elizabeth
Asks quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#47. The world still wants to ask that a woman primarily be pretty and if she is not, the mob pouts and asks querulously, 'What else are women for? #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
Asks quotes by Alain De Botton
#48. Taking architecture seriously therefore makes some singular strenuous demands upon us. It requires that we open ourselves to the idea that we are affected by our surroundings even when they are made of vinyl and would be expensive and time-consuming to ameliorate. It means conceding that we are inconveniently vulnerable to the color of our wallpaper and that our sense of purpose may be derailed by an unfortunate bedspread. At the same time, it means acknowledging that buildings are able to solve no more than a fraction of our dissatisfactions or prevent evil from unfolding under their watch.

Architecture, even at its most accomplished, will only ever constitute a small, and imperfect (expensive, prone to destruction, and morally unreliable), protest against the state of things. More awkwardly still, architecture asks us to imagine that happiness might often have an unostentatious, unheroic character to it, that it might be found in a run of old floorboards or in a wash of morning light over a plaster wall - in undramatic, frangible scenes of beauty that move us because we are aware of the darker backdrop against which they are set. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Asks quotes by Doug Ose
#49. There are a lot of latchkey kids. I don't want to be sitting there when a guy blurts something out over the TV and have my daughters ask me what those words mean. #Quote by Doug Ose
Asks quotes by Benjamin Zander
#50. My job [is] to awaken possibility in other people. If their eyes are shining, you know you're doing it. If they're not shining you get to ask this question: "Who am I being that my children's eyes are not shining?" #Quote by Benjamin Zander
Asks quotes by Alice Boyes
#51. Let's consider a less severe example: Bridget feels anxious about fixing the computer and emailing the accountant so she asks her partner, Steve, to do these things for her. The more people rely on their loved ones to do things for them when they feel anxious, the more their anxiety is likely to grow. Over time, they will feel less and less competent. They'll increasingly doubt their ability to cope with situations that provoke anxiety. More and more situations will set off their self-doubt. Their relationships are also likely to suffer. #Quote by Alice Boyes
Asks quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#52. Holly asks, "Do you know what he'll say? You're so calm."

I say, "I'm sick over it."

"You don't look it."

Corr can hold a thousand things in his heart and reveal only one of them on his face, like he did earlier today. He is so very like me.

I let myself, for one brief moment, consider what Malvern may want to meet about. The thought stings inside me, a cold needle.

"Now you do," says Holly. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Asks quotes by Lauren Barnholdt
#53. Do you think anyone found out about that?" B. J. Asks, sounding nervous.
"Found out about what?" I ask, trying to imagine why I would say that to my fake girlfriend. Maybe if she asked "Do you think anyone found out about that?" meaning, "Do you think anyone found out about us having sex in my parents' bed?" or something. I hope Courtney is smart enough to infer that that's what is probably going on. I wonder if it would be going too far to actually come out and say, "You mean about the doggie-style we had?"
"Found out about the pot we bought!" B. J. Says, sounding exasperated. He's been sounding exasperated with me a lot lately. #Quote by Lauren Barnholdt
Asks quotes by Jayson Blair
#54. I seek to be authentic and engaging, using my own experiences, being as vulnerable as I ask my clients to be, to enhance the process. #Quote by Jayson Blair
Asks quotes by Markus Zusak
#55. They say that war is death's best friend, but I must offer you a different point of view on that one. To me, war is like the new boss who expects the impossible. He stands over your shoulder repeating one thin, incessantly: 'Get it done, get it done.' So you work harder. You get the job done. The boss, however, does not thank you. He asks for more. #Quote by Markus Zusak
Asks quotes by Mort Sahl
#56. If someone were to ask me for a short cut to sensuality, I would suggest he go shopping for a used 427 Shelby-Cobra. But it is only fair to warn you that of the 300 guys who switched to them in 1966, only two went back to women. #Quote by Mort Sahl
Asks quotes by Chief Joseph
#57. I know that my race must change. We cannot hold our own with the white men as we are. We only ask an even chance to live as other men live. We ask to be recognized as men. We ask that the same law shall work alike on all men. If an Indian breaks the law, punish him by the law. If a white man breaks the law, punish him also. #Quote by Chief Joseph
Asks quotes by Lucinda Franks
#58. In the railroads, some people read clearly printed departure signs and then proceed to ask several times what they say. On airplanes, they demand things they know they cannot have. In their cars, they load up, drive away and then suddenly realize they don't know where they're going. #Quote by Lucinda Franks
Asks quotes by Leisa Rayven
#59. So, you and Quinn going to finally seal the deal tonight?" Josh asks. "Because God knows, if I have to witness one more second of you two panting over each other, I'm going to lock you both in a room until someone comes. #Quote by Leisa Rayven
Asks quotes by Marya Hornbacher
#60. You know those afternoons," he asks, drawing a shaking breath, "where you're just going along, doing fine, and then afternoon comes and it feels like you've just got the wind knocked out of you and everything is wrong?" He sighs and slowly pushes himself so he's sitting upright. His shoulders are slumped. "That's all," he says. "It's just one of those afternoons."
We are silent for a minute. Then he lies back down on the couch.
I should say I love him. I should say it will be all right. But it won't.
I walk down the hall to my bedroom. I lie down on my side and stare at the wall, the blue-flowered wallpaper next to my nose. Despite my best efforts, I start to cry.
I know those afternoons. #Quote by Marya Hornbacher
Asks quotes by Assata Shakur
#61. All you have to do is ask yourselves, who controls the government? And who are the victims of that control? #Quote by Assata Shakur
Asks quotes by Rajneesh
#62. We never ask the meaning of life when we are in love. #Quote by Rajneesh
Asks quotes by Ruby Wax
#63. I always ask the booksellers to look at me and recommend a book; 9 out of 10, they get it right; it's usually a book about someone dysfunctional. To me bookstores are like brothels of imagination, each book is luring me over going, 'Read me, read me'. #Quote by Ruby Wax
Asks quotes by Revilo P. Oliver
#64. Now I admit that the notion of a warless world is a pleasant and attractive thought. But people who believe that there can be such a thing should ask it of Santa Claus, in whom they doubtless also believe. #Quote by Revilo P. Oliver
Asks quotes by Karla Cheatham Mosley
#65. When I fail or make a mistake, I ask myself what lesson I was supposed to learn or how I can show up differently next time. #Quote by Karla Cheatham Mosley
Asks quotes by Philip Levine
#66. Thirty years will pass before I remember
that moment when suddenly I knew each man
has one brother who dies when he sleeps
and sleeps when he rises to face this life,
and that together they are only one man
sharing a heart that always labours, hands
yellowed and cracked, a mouth that gasps
for breath and asks, Am I gonna make it? #Quote by Philip Levine
Asks quotes by Salman Rushdie
#67. What kind of Christmas present would Jesus ask Santa for? #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Asks quotes by Fulton Oursler
#68. Faith is a gift-but you can ask for it. #Quote by Fulton Oursler
Asks quotes by Giovanni Papini
#69. The man who is alone, who stands on his own feet, who is stripped bare, who asks for nothing and wants nothing, who has reached the apex of disinterested­ness not through blind renunciation but through ex­cess of clear vision, turns to the world which stretches out before him as a burned prairie, as a devastated city - a world in which no churches, asylums, refuges, ideals, are left - and says: "Though you promise me nothing I am still with you, I am still an atom of your energies, my work is part of your work; I am your companion and your mirror as you march on your merciless way. #Quote by Giovanni Papini
Asks quotes by Paulo Coelho
#70. The feeling of uselessness is no respecter of age and never asks permission, but instead corrodes people's souls, repeating over and over: 'No one is interested in you, you're nothing, the world doesn't need your presence. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Asks quotes by W. Edwards Deming
#71. All anyone asks for is a chance to work with pride. #Quote by W. Edwards Deming
Asks quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#72. John thinks that the laws of the universe may themselves be evolving. He asks such questions as where were the laws of physics before the universe was created. Was there, is there a matrix, a mother field, existing outside time? All this is a bit thorny for me. I don't know. I believe that the laws are the laws. I believe that the reason there are millions of planets is the same reason there are millions of eggs. To allow for failure. There must be countless experimental situations like this one. The only thing that is not expendable is the experiment itself. Our notions of our own uniqueness are precisely that. Our notions. We will not be missed. When we have slaughtered and poisoned everything in sight and finally incinerated the earth itself then that black and lifeless lump of slag will simply revolve in the void forever. There is a place for it too. A nameless cinder of no consequence even to God. That man can halt this disaster now seems so remote a possibility as to hardly bear consideration. #Quote by Cormac McCarthy
Asks quotes by Bret Easton Ellis
#73. Lover? se asks, her voice reminding me of someone human. #Quote by Bret Easton Ellis
Asks quotes by Tony Robbins
#74. Meanings don't just affect the way we feel; they affect all of our relationships and interactions. Some people think the first ten years of a relationship is just the beginning; that they're just now getting to know each other, and it's really exciting. It's an opportunity to go deeper. Other people could be ten days into a relationship, and the first time they have an argument, they think it's the end.
Now tell me, if you think this is the beginning of a relationship, are you going to behave the same way as if it were the end? That one slight shift in perception, in meaning, can change your whole life in a moment. In the beginning of a relationship, if you're totally in love and attracted, what will you do for the other person? The answer is: anything! If he or she asks you to take out the trash, you might leap to your feet and say, "Anything that lights you up, sweetheart!" But after seven days, seven years, or seventy years, people say things like, "What the hell do you think I am, your janitor?!" And they wonder what happened to the passion in their life. I've often shared with couples having trouble in their relationships that if you do what you did in the beginning of the relationship, there wont be an end! Because in the beginning of the relationship, you were a giver, not an accountant. You weren't weighing constantly the meaning of who was giving more. Your entire focus was just lighting up that person, and his or her happiness made you feel like your life was #Quote by Tony Robbins
Asks quotes by Suzanne Collins
#75. She have another fellow?" asks Caesar.

I don't know, but a lot of boys like her," says Peeta.

So, here's what you do. You win, you go home. She can't turn you down then, eh?" says Caesar encouragingly.

I don't think it's going to work out. Winning...won't help in my case," says Peeta.

Why ever not?" says Caesar, mystified. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Asks quotes by Clarice Lispector
#76. I ask myself: is every story that has ever been written in this world, a story of suffering and affliction?
#Quote by Clarice Lispector
Asks quotes by John Sununu
#77. You walk into any supermarket or any shopping mall and ask the public what they are worried about. Not one of them will tell you they are worried about 12 years of Mitt Romney's tax returns. #Quote by John Sununu
Asks quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#78. In your palms, I've placed my life, my secrets. I give you freedom to leave me at any time. I'm not easy to love. No one ever has. All I ask is that you always keep your silence, if not for me, then for the families of the others you'd destroy. (Nykyrian) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Asks quotes by Richard Bach
#79. Ask yourself the secret of your success. Listen to your answer, and practice it. #Quote by Richard Bach
Asks quotes by Mary Parker Follett
#80. The best leader does not ask people to serve him, but the common end. The best leader has not followers, but men and women working with him. #Quote by Mary Parker Follett
Asks quotes by Big L
#81. You can ask Beavis ...
I get nothing but head. #Quote by Big L
Asks quotes by Mark Twain
#82. There are three infallible ways of pleasing an author, and the three form a
rising scale of compliment: 1, to tell him you have read one of his books; 2,
to tell him you have read all of his books; 3, to ask him to let you read the
manuscript of his forthcoming book. No. 1 admits you to his respect; No. 2
admits you to his admiration; No. 3 carries you clear into his heart. #Quote by Mark Twain
Asks quotes by Buck Brannaman
#83. As far as horses go, people will ask about one breed versus another. I have to tell you, I really don't have any prejudice one way or another. I treat every horse at face value, how he/she is as an individual. #Quote by Buck Brannaman
Asks quotes by Cath Crowley
#84. Get. Up,' George says, gently shoving me with her knee, which is her version of a hug. I love my sister, but, along with the rest of the world, I don't really understand her and it'd be true to say I fear her, just slightly.

She's seventeen, starting Year 12 this year. She likes learning but she hates her school. She got a scholarship to a private one on the other side of the river in Year 7 and Mum makes her stay there even though she'd rather go to Gracetown High.

She wears a huge amount of black, mostly t-shirts with things like Read, Motherfuckers on the front. Sometimes I think she likes post-apocalyptic fiction so much because she's genuinely happy at the thought that the world might end.

'Is the plan to get up sometime soon?' she asks, and I tell her no, that is not the plan. I explain the plan to her, which is basically to wait, horizontally, for life to improve. #Quote by Cath Crowley
Asks quotes by Carrie Ryan
#85. Would you leave your world for me?" he asks.
"I might." she tells him. She wonders how the world ever fell apart with this much love in it. #Quote by Carrie Ryan
Asks quotes by Rickey Henderson
#86. People always ask me why I still want to play, but I want to know why no one will give me an opportunity. It's like they put a stamp on me: 'Hall of Fame. You're done. That's it.' #Quote by Rickey Henderson
Asks quotes by Lucian Freud
#87. What do I ask of a painting? I ask it to astonish, disturb, seduce, convince. #Quote by Lucian Freud
Asks quotes by Philip Johnson
#88. I wish someone would ask me to design a cathedral. #Quote by Philip Johnson
Asks quotes by Alexandra Bracken
#89. Real friends are hard to come by, and as annoying as Henry is, he'd throw himself in front of dragon's fire for you."
"And that's the definition of a real friend?"
"Oh, yes, just ask Owain." He laughed. #Quote by Alexandra Bracken
Asks quotes by John Grisham
#90. With murder, the victim is gone, and not forced to deal with what happened to her. The family must deal with it, but not the victim. But rape is much worse. The victim has a lifetime of coping, trying to understand, of asking questions, and the worst part, of knowing the rapist is still alive and may someday escape or be released. Every hour of every day, the victim thinks of the rape and asks herself a thousand questions. She relives it, step by step, minute by minute, and it hurts just as bad.
Perhaps the most horrible crime of all is the violent rape of a child. A woman who is raped has a pretty good idea why it happened. Some animal was filled with hatred, anger and violence. But a child? A ten-year-old child? Suppose you're a parent. Imagine yourself trying to explain to your child why she was raped. Imagine yourself trying to explain why she cannot bear children. #Quote by John Grisham
Asks quotes by Mark Driscoll
#91. God is tolerant in that He asks everyone to repent. #Quote by Mark Driscoll
Asks quotes by Robert Breault
#92. Each day, awakening, are we asked to paint the sky blue? Need we coax the sun to rise or flowers to bloom? Need we teach birds to sing, or children to laugh, or lovers to kiss? No, though we think the world imperfect, it surrounds us each day with its perfections. We are asked only to appreciate them, and to show appreciation by living in peaceful harmony amidst them. The Creator does not ask that we create a perfect world; He asks that we celebrate it. #Quote by Robert Breault
Asks quotes by Allen W. Wood
#93. It is striking that motivation plays virtually no role in Hegel's theory of action, because Hegel's theory of action in effect replaces motives with intentions or (internal) reasons. Instead of asking what psychic factors motivated me, Hegel asks for an explanation of my action in terms of the act-descriptions that supply the reasons I had for doing what I did. #Quote by Allen W. Wood
Asks quotes by Alexia Casale
#94. You are meant to heal. There is beauty and wild magic in the night. Enough to make you ache with joy and grow strong. There is no lesson in that. There is just reward, waiting for you, that asks nothing and demands no payment. Look! the Dragon orders. Look and tell me what more is needed. #Quote by Alexia Casale
Asks quotes by Doreen Virtue
#95. Take a moment to gather your thoughts about your situation and ask, "What would Love do?" Then channel that energy in your words and actions. #Quote by Doreen Virtue
Asks quotes by Seneca The Younger
#96. Prosperity asks for fidelity; adversity exacts it. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Asks quotes by Cees Nooteboom
#97. When Sartre says man has been thrown into the world, he is alone, there is no God, we are responsible for what we are, what we do, I say yes!"
The affirmative echoed around the woods. The dog pricked up his ears. This man has no one to talk to, thought Inni.
"But when he then asks me to be responsible for the world as well, for others, I say no! No. Why should I be? 'When man chooses himself, he chooses all men.' Why? I have not asked for anything. I have nothing to do with the vermin I see around me. I live out my time because I have to, that is all. #Quote by Cees Nooteboom
Asks quotes by Albert Schweitzer
#98. I believe that I possess this value: to serve Jesus. I am less at peace than if my goal would be to attain a professorship and a good life, but I live. And that gives me the tremendous feeling of happiness, as if one would hear music. One feels uprooted, because one asks, what lies ahead, what decisions should I make-but more alive, happier than those anchored in life. To drift with released anchor. #Quote by Albert Schweitzer
Asks quotes by Nyrae Dawn
#99. What is it about stars that you love so much?" he asks.
That answer comes quickly. "Because they're infinite. They're miracles, and anything is possible when you look out into the massive space that goes on and on." Because I want that. I want to explore and see what's out there and feel as free as those stars in the sky. #Quote by Nyrae Dawn
Asks quotes by Thomas Kuhn
#100. The answers you get depend upon the questions you ask. #Quote by Thomas Kuhn
Asks quotes by Ambeth R. Ocampo
#101. Filipinos are not a reading people, and despite the compulsory course on the life and works of Rizal today, from the elementary to the university levels, it is accepted that the 'Noli me Tangere' and 'El Filibusterismo' are highly regarded but seldom read (if not totally ignored). Therefore one asks, how can unread novels exert any influence? #Quote by Ambeth R. Ocampo
Asks quotes by Lisa Stone
#102. Wonder what customers really want? Ask. Don't Tell. #Quote by Lisa Stone
Asks quotes by Wayne Dyer
#103. God is love and doesn't ask for anything back in return. So it's that process of letting go and just allowing, and just being in that pure state. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Asks quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#104. Never ask while you are doing it if what you are doing is fun. Don't introduce even your most reliably witty acquaintance as someone who will set the table on a roar. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Asks quotes by James M. Barrie
#105. We have a right to know the truth; no right to ask anything else from God, but the right to know that. #Quote by James M. Barrie
Asks quotes by Vikrmn
#106. The Knowledgeable has the intelligent answer; but only the intelligent one asks for a knowledgeable question. #Quote by Vikrmn
Asks quotes by John Mott
#107. The world asks, How much does he give? Christ asks why does he give? #Quote by John Mott
Asks quotes by Meister Eckhart
#108. All that God asks you most pressingly is to go out of yourself ... and let God be God in you #Quote by Meister Eckhart
Asks quotes by David Sylvian
#109. People are afraid to ask musicians to be involved in projects because they anticipate being turned down. Young artists hesitate before contacting me. People in my position don't get approached often enough. #Quote by David Sylvian
Asks quotes by Charlotte Mason
#110. Let the parent ask "Why?" and the child produce the answer, if he can. After he has turned the matter over in his mind, there is no harm in telling him - and he will remember it - the reason why. #Quote by Charlotte Mason
Asks quotes by Martial
#111. This I ask, is it not madness to kill thyself in order to escape death?
[Lat., Hic rogo non furor est ne moriare mori?] #Quote by Martial
Asks quotes by Nicholson Baker
#112. I would like to visit the factory that makes train horns, and ask them how they are able to arrive at that chord of eternal mournfulness. Is it deliberately sad? Are the horns saying, Be careful, stay away from this train or it will run you over and then people will grieve, and their grief will be as the inconsolable wail of this horn through the night? The out-of-tuneness of the triad is part of its beauty. #Quote by Nicholson Baker
Asks quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#113. I just want to know...if I am special,' finished September, halfway between a whisper and a squeak. 'In stories, when someone appears in a poof of green clouds and asks a girl to go away on an adventure, it's because she's special, because she's smart and strong and can solve riddles and fight with swords and give really good speeches, and . . . I don't know that I'm any of those things. I don't even know that I'm as ill-tempered as all that. I'm not dull or anything, I know about geography and chess, and I can fix the boiler when my mother has to work. But what I mean to say is: Maybe you meant to go to another girl's house and let her ride on the Leopard. Maybe you didn't mean to choose me at all, because I'm not like storybook girls. I'm short and my father ran away with the army and I wouldn't even be able to keep a dog from eating a bird. #Quote by Catherynne M Valente
Asks quotes by Thomas Brooks
#114. If any man should ask me what is the first, second, and third part of being a Christian, I must answer 'Action!' #Quote by Thomas Brooks
Asks quotes by Chuck Berry
#115. A contract is an ask game, and if it asks for an hour, and I submit to an hour, then it's an hour. When I look at a contract, I look at the obligation - where, when, how long, the compensation. If I agree to it, that's the way it is. I have an obligation. They have an obligation. #Quote by Chuck Berry
Asks quotes by John Henrik Clarke
#116. As the eldest son of an Alabama sharecropper family, I was constantly troubled by a collage of North American southern behaviors and notions in reference to the inhumanity of people. There were questions that I did not know how to ask but could, in my young, unsophisticated way, articulate a series of answers. #Quote by John Henrik Clarke
Asks quotes by Manasa Rao
#117. I haven't been to a temple in years, never been forced. My folks always said, marry a nice human being, religion doesn't matter. They said your god is inside you! Don't you forget that. Krishna, Jesus, Allah, are all one. Follow vegetarianism as far as you can, but you can choose your own diet, doesn't matter. Believe in god, but for you and not because the world asks you to. Forgive and forget to be at peace. Do not believe in revenge, believe in karma!! #Quote by Manasa Rao
Asks quotes by Colleen Houck
#118. You think I wanted to fall for you? I stayed away from you! I gave him the chance to be with you! But there's another part of me that asks what if? What if you're not supposed to be with Ren? What if you were supposed to be the answer to my prayers? Not his! #Quote by Colleen Houck
Asks quotes by Deepak Chopra
#119. From a pure heart anything can be accomplished. If you ask what the universe is doing, it is eavesdropping on your every desire. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Asks quotes by Jacob Nordby
#120. The soul of us is never confused about why it is here.
It only asks us to wake up and see the breadcrumb clues it has been leaving all along.
It asks us to have courage to face the wounds we have been hiding, allow it to heal them and untangle the heavy, snarled patterns.
Because the soul of us has no doubt whatever that it can and, if we allow it to express fully, can live a life of such power and joy through us that our human selves will be astonished. #Quote by Jacob Nordby
Asks quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#121. Communist propaganda would sometimes include statements such as "we include almost all the commandments of the Gospel in our ideology". The difference is that the Gospel asks all this to be achieved through love, through self-limitation, but socialism only uses coercion. This is one point. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Asks quotes by Itzhak Bentov
#122. If we were to ask the brain how it would like to be treated, whether shaken at a random, irregular rate, or in a rhythmic, harmonious fashion, we can be sure that the brain, or for that matter the whole body, would prefer the latter. #Quote by Itzhak Bentov
Asks quotes by Abbie Emmons
#123. Well?' he asks when I don't open my eyes and silently savor the goodness. 'What do you taste?'

I smile despite myself. 'The most amazing waffles under the sun. #Quote by Abbie Emmons
Asks quotes by Bob Schieffer
#124. Once we get them in the studio, you interview a person the same way you would interview another. You ask them a question. You let them answer. You try to listen closely and then ask a follow-up. #Quote by Bob Schieffer
Asks quotes by Jack Canfield
#125. One of life's fundamental truths states, 'Ask and you shall receive.' As kids we get used to asking for things, but somehow we lose this ability in adulthood. We come up with all sorts of excuses and reasons to avoid any possibility of criticism or rejection. #Quote by Jack Canfield
Asks quotes by Flora Robson
#126. Ask God's blessings on your work but don't ask Him to do it for you. #Quote by Flora Robson
Asks quotes by James Fox
#127. You don't ask of Justice; it asks of you.
-Danny Rollings #Quote by James Fox
Asks quotes by Gabrielle Zevin
#128. What are you reading?" Owen asks.
"Charlotte's Web," Liz says. "It's really sad. One of the main characters just died."
"You ought to read the book from end to beginning," Owen jokes. "That way, no one dies, and it's always a happy ending. #Quote by Gabrielle Zevin
Asks quotes by Susie Larson
#129. Obeying Him when it doesn't suit us is downright hard. But every hard thing God asks us to do is always accompanied by His promise to transform us as we go. #Quote by Susie Larson
Asks quotes by John Paul Caponigro
#130. Don't ask 'Should I ... ?'. Instead, 'Ask what happens if I ... ?' #Quote by John Paul Caponigro
Asks quotes by Ron Brackin
#131. When God asks a question, it is always rhetorical. #Quote by Ron Brackin
Asks quotes by Joey Adams
#132. A psychiatrist asks a lot of expensive questions your wife asks for nothing. #Quote by Joey Adams
Asks quotes by Sheryl Swoopes
#133. Players don't really ask for much or want much. But the things that they do need are important. #Quote by Sheryl Swoopes
Asks quotes by Julie James
#134. Did you just ask me out on a date, Ms Parker?"
"No."
"Are you sure? Because I-"
"Still no. I need something, and you're the only guy who can give it to me." She cut him off before he could even say the words. "Yes, thank you. I'm aware of how that sounded. I'm hanging up now. #Quote by Julie James
Asks quotes by Jay Maisel

Asks quotes by J.M. Darhower
#137. What turns you on more?" he asks, his hands grasping my thighs as he pulls me up. "The fighting or the fucking? #Quote by J.M. Darhower
Asks quotes by Orson Scott Card
#138. Humanity does not ask us to be happy. It merely asks us to be brilliant on its behalf. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Asks quotes by Kim Harrison
#139. He grinned. That's because pixies are ever-after. We're magic, baby. Just ask Matalina. #Quote by Kim Harrison
Asks quotes by Oriana Fallaci
#140. A lot of women ask themselves why they should bring a child into the world? So that it will be hungry, so that it will be cold, so that it will be betrayed and humiliated, so that it will be slaughtered by war or disease? They reject the hope that its hunger will be satisfied, its cold warmed, that loyalty and respect will accompany it through life, that it will be a devote a life to the effort to eliminate war and disease. #Quote by Oriana Fallaci
Asks quotes by Meher Baba
#141. There is only one question. And once you know the answer to that question there are no more to ask. #Quote by Meher Baba
Asks quotes by Dag Hammarskjold
#142. Your cravings as a human animal do not become a prayer just because it is God whom you ask to attend to them. #Quote by Dag Hammarskjold
Asks quotes by Lauren Oliver
#143. What am I go­ing to do?" Coral asks.

"Stay here," I say. "Watch. Cov­er me if some­thing goes wrong."

"That's bull­shit," she says half­heart­ed­ly. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Asks quotes by Man Ray
#144. You don't ask a writer what typewriter he uses. #Quote by Man Ray
Asks quotes by Pope John Paul II
#145. The unworthy successor of Peter who desires to benefit from the immeasurable wealth of Christ feels the great need of your assistance, your prayers, your sacrifice, and he most humbly asks this of you. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Asks quotes by Anthony Trollope
#146. Colonial governors at their seats of government, and Ministers Plenipotentiary in their ambassadorial residences are very great persons indeed; and when met in society at home, with the stars and ribbons which are common among them now, they are less, indeed, but still something. But at the Colonial and Foreign Offices in London, among the assistant secretaries and clerks, they are hardly more than common men. All the gingerbread is gone there. His Excellency is no more than Jones, and the Representative or Alter Ego of Royalty mildly asks little favours of the junior clerks. #Quote by Anthony Trollope
Asks quotes by Jeff Foxworthy
#147. You might be a redneck if on your first date you had to ask your Dad to borrow the keys to the tractor. #Quote by Jeff Foxworthy
Asks quotes by Rajneesh
#148. Let this truth go as deep in you as possible: that life is already here, arrived. You are standing on the goal. Don't ask about the path. #Quote by Rajneesh
Asks quotes by Golda Meir
#149. The modern woman asks herself: Is there something wrong with me if my children don't fill up my life? #Quote by Golda Meir
Asks quotes by Edwin McCain
#150. I could not ask for more than the love you give me ... Cause it's all I've waited for ... and I could not ask for more. #Quote by Edwin McCain
Asks quotes by Larry Hagman
#151. I often ask people if they would like to give their organs when they pass on, and they say "Well, I'm not so sure, I don't know." And I said, "Well, would you accept one if you needed one?" "Well, yeah, sure." And I say "Well, there you go - where do you get them from?". #Quote by Larry Hagman
Asks quotes by Nora Ephron
#152. Everyone always asks, was he mad at you for writing the book? and I have to say, Yes, yes, he was. He still is. It is one of the most fascinating things to me about the whole episode: he cheated on me, and then got to behave as if he was the one who had been wronged because I wrote about it! I mean, it's not as if I wasn't a writer. It's not as if I hadn't often written about myself. I'd even written about him. What did he think was going to happen? That I would take a vow of silence for the first time in my life? " #Quote by Nora Ephron
Asks quotes by Gayle Forman
#153. Her eyes flutter up to meet mine. "Are you hungry?"she asks. Am I ever. #Quote by Gayle Forman
Asks quotes by Wernher Von Braun
#154. My friends they were dancing here in the streets of Huntsville when our first satellite orbited the Earth. They were dancing again when the first Americans landed on the Moon. I'd like to ask you, don't hang up your dancing slippers. #Quote by Wernher Von Braun
Asks quotes by Goswami Kriyananda
#155. But surrender also means your back's to the wall and saying, "Okay, I give up." But rather it's a joyful self-offering. When you come to the point of realizing that "I never get it right. I always make a mess of things; I can't do anything right. Let him do it." And then you ask his power to do it through you and you find suddenly that it works that way. #Quote by Goswami Kriyananda
Asks quotes by Cornelia Funke
#156. My wife loves written words ... you know, words that stick to parchment and paper like dead flies, and it seems my father felt the same - but I want to hear words! Remember that when you are looking for the right words: You must ask yourself what they SOUND like! Glowing with passion, dark with sorrow, sweet with love, that's what I want. - Cosimo #Quote by Cornelia Funke
Asks quotes by Margaret Atwood
#157. If you're a woman writer, sometime, somewhere, you will be asked: Do you think of yourself as a writer first, or as a woman first? Look out. Whoever asks this hates and fears both writing and women. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Asks quotes by Bill O'Reilly
#158. For some reason, President Obama is being heckled about "don't ask, don't tell," which may be revoked. The president wants gays to be allowed to serve openly in the military. #Quote by Bill O'Reilly
Asks quotes by Emma Chase
#159. What does a Consort to the Queen do exactly?" Edward asks. "Am I just the stud of the kingdom? The cock for the Queen to ride? #Quote by Emma Chase
Asks quotes by Niall Horan
#160. Fans always ask me to marry them so I'll have a lot of wives #Quote by Niall Horan
Asks quotes by Sarah Addison Allen
#161. She knew what it felt like to stand in front of someone and ask them to love you, to try to pull them to you by the sheer force of your desire, a force so strong it felt as though you were going to die from it. #Quote by Sarah Addison Allen
Asks quotes by Louis Kronenberger
#162. The closer and more confidential our relationship with someone, the less we are entitled to ask about what we are not voluntarily told. #Quote by Louis Kronenberger
Asks quotes by Edith Head
#163. We ask the public to believe that every time they see an actress or actor that they are a different person. #Quote by Edith Head
Asks quotes by Colleen Hoover
#164. What was it like the first time you saw me?" she asks. "What was it about me that made you want to ask me out? And tell me everything, even the bad thoughts."
I laugh. "There weren't any bad thoughts. Naughty thoughts, maybe. But not bad."
She grins. "Well then tell me those, too. #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Asks quotes by Origen
#165. Ask, and it shall be given you. #Quote by Origen
Asks quotes by Lucy H. Pearce
#166. There is a juiciness to creativity, a succulence that comes up from within, a sensuality which both produces and is soothed by the act and product of creativity. Creativity is pleasing to us on a deep level. Be it the feel of clay in our hands, the colors that make us feel alive as we knit or sew, the meaning that we find in the words that we write, the energizing feel of movement as we dance and the music moves through our bodies. Taking part in creativity helps us to be more fully alive on every level, it asks that we engage with life in a visceral, and interactive way. #Quote by Lucy H. Pearce
Asks quotes by Joseph J. Ellis
#167. And the only thing to do with a sin is to confess, do penance and then, after some kind of decent interval, ask for forgiveness. #Quote by Joseph J. Ellis
Asks quotes by Kamla Persad-Bissessar
#168. Men don't want to be confused by the facts when their minds are already made up. Women know the art of negotiation - just ask the mother of a four-year-old who refuses to eat his veggies or the parent of a teenager. #Quote by Kamla Persad-Bissessar
Asks quotes by Anne Sweeney
#169. While I was in college, I became a page at ABC. Suddenly I was working for Good Morning America, local news, national news. The page is the lowest rung of the ladder, and it's the also the place where you can ask any question and not feel dumb. #Quote by Anne Sweeney
Asks quotes by Luke Bracey
#170. My poor mother. Every time I get a job, she asks, 'Am I gonna have to watch you kiss someone again in this one?' and I say, 'You're probably gonna have to watch me kiss someone in most of them, Mom.' #Quote by Luke Bracey
Asks quotes by Dorothy Allison
#171. My son, Wolf, was born when I was past 40 and the author of a best-selling novel. That means he has grown up a middle-class child - one who sometimes asks me for stories of my childhood but knows nothing of what it means to grow up poor and afraid. I have worked to make sure of that. #Quote by Dorothy Allison
Asks quotes by Jenna Jameson
#172. When it comes to being a good lover, a guy has to ask a girl what she wants and be willing to give it to her. #Quote by Jenna Jameson
Asks quotes by Ryan Gosling
#173. A lot of people when they make movies, the actors act like it's their journey and that everyone is on the set to facilitate their journey and the whole thing is set up that way - they ask if you want anything. #Quote by Ryan Gosling
Asks quotes by Margaret Atwood
#174. What is a stromatolite? he asks rhetorically, his eyes gleaming. The word comes from the Greek stroma, a mattress, coupled with the root word for "stone." Stone mattress: a fossilized cushion, formed by layer upon layer of blue-green algae building up into a mound or dome. It was this very same blue-green algae that created the oxygen they are now breathing. Isn't that astonishing? #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Asks quotes by Louise Hay
#175. Life is here for you to live to the fullest ... Take your courage in your hands and move out into Life. Ask for what you want. Believe that you deserve it, and then allow Life to give it to you ... Be sure that you're willing to receive. Life can't give to you if your hands are closed. Open your mind, open your heart, and open your arms. Life loves you and only wants to give you the best. #Quote by Louise Hay
Asks quotes by D.A. Carson
#176. Emulate those who are interested in the well-being of others, not in their own. Be on the alert for Christians who really do exemplify this basic Christian attitude, this habit of helpfulness. They are never the sort who strut their way into leadership with inflated estimates of their own importance. They are the kind who cheerfully pick up after other people. They are not offended if no one asks about them; they are too busy asking about others. They are the kind who are constantly seeking to do good spiritually, to do good materially, to do good emotionally. They are committed to the well-being of others. #Quote by D.A. Carson
Asks quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#177. All I ask for the negro is that if you do not like him, let him alone. If God gave him but little, that little let him enjoy. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Asks quotes by John Wooden
#178. If I did only what I wanted to do, I would not be obedient to the Creator. Sometimes He wants us to do certain things that we may not feel like doing. When it comes to what God asks of us, we need more than good intentions we need to follow through fully. #Quote by John Wooden
Asks quotes by Oswald Chambers
#179. Why are we so terrified for God to speak to us? It is because we know that when God speaks we must either do what He asks or tell Him we will not obey. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Asks quotes by Kevin Hearne
#180. Wooo!' he said, slamming his shot glass down and coughing a bit. 'That's good stuff.'
I agreed heartily. 'Shall we do another one?' I asked.
'Oh no,' Jesus said quietly, his eyes growing round. 'This is one of those situations where I have to stop and ask myself, what would I do? #Quote by Kevin Hearne
Asks quotes by Paul Krugman
#181. [I]f one asks what substantive contributions [F. A. Hayek] made to our understanding of how the world works, one is left at something of a loss. Were it not for his politics, he would be virtually forgotten. #Quote by Paul Krugman
Asks quotes by Katie Kiesler
#182. I've realized, though, we can either choose to be vulnerable or have moments of vulnerability sneak up on us. Like when you're happily alone, strutting around your house naked, but then hear a sound. Suddenly, the comfort and confidence you felt in your own skin evaporates. You run to the nearest room, hurrying to shut the door. Then you wait, and listen quietly for an opportunity to make an escape. Your mind races trying to think of an excuse for your current nude state. You're embarrassed.
But, if you live your life listening for the Lord, obeying when He asks you to be vulnerable, you never have to worry about being walked in on. Your soul is ready to be seen. And, He won't allow your life to be marked by shame or embarrassment. #Quote by Katie Kiesler
Asks quotes by Anne-Marie Slaughter
#183. Do not vote for Hillary [Clinton] because she is a woman. Ask yourself, who has done more for women so far and who will do more for women in the future - and then make your choice. #Quote by Anne-Marie Slaughter
Asks quotes by W. Edwards Deming
#184. Experience by itself teaches nothing ... Without theory, experience has no meaning. Without theory, one has no questions to ask. Hence, without theory, there is no learning. #Quote by W. Edwards Deming
Asks quotes by Brian Keene
#185. Levi," Maria called. "Come back. We're not finished yet."
He paused
"What, Maria?"
"You asked me what I believe in? I believed in you."
He nodded his head sadly. "Yes, you did. And before you met me, you believed in nothing. But that's the thing with belief, Maria. It's easy to believe in something when it doesn't require anything from you. It's much harder, though, when the object of your belief requires something of you or asks for something you don't want to give. That's when real belief occurs. #Quote by Brian Keene
Asks quotes by Dean Atta
#186. Granddad asks, "Why does it matter if he's black? The other flamingos don't care." And I'm certain what he's saying is "I love you. #Quote by Dean Atta

Asks quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#188. If my friend asks me to sit in a temple belonging to a God that I do not know, because he needs a friend to sit with him, I will be happy to sit there in the foreign temple. Because the temple itself is an outer container only. What is the true religion? What is the inner oil contained by that outer container? The inner oil is the friendship I share with my friend. The true religion is being there to sit beside my friend. If I cannot do this for my friend, then how am I worthy to sit in any temple, whether belonging to a God that I know or to a God that I don't know? If there is no inner oil within my soul, I do not deserve to sit in any temple. Religion is the friendship within the heart, not the place where we sit on a holy day. Religion is the oil within the lamp, not the metal container we see as the lamp. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.

Asks quotes by Peter Watts
#191. You know what happens when you keep a dog locked away from every living thing, except you visit once a day and kick the shit out of him?"
Perreault laughed nervously. "Someone actually tried that?"
"What happens is, the dog's a social animal, and it gets so lonely it actually looks forward to the shit-kicking. It asks to be kicked. It begs. #Quote by Peter Watts
Asks quotes by William Zinsser
#192. Get people talking. Learn to ask questions that will elicit answers about what is most interesting or vivid in their lives. Nothing so animates writing as someone telling what he thinks or what he does - in his own words. His own words will always be better than your words, even if you are the most elegant stylist in the land. #Quote by William Zinsser
Asks quotes by Norman Mailer
#193. Love asks us that we be a little braver than is comfortable, a little more generous, a little more flexible. It means living on the edge more than we care to. #Quote by Norman Mailer
Asks quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#194. While wading through the whimsies, the puerilities, and unintelligible jargon of this work [Plato's Republic], I laid it down often to ask myself how it could have been that the world should have so long consented to give reputation to such nonsense as this? #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Asks quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#195. I've met God across his long walnut desk with his diplomas hanging on the wall behind him, and God asks me, "Why?"
Why did I cause so much pain?
Didn't I realize that each of us is a sacred, unique snowflake of special unique specialness?
Can't I see how we're all manifestations of love?
I look at God behind his desk, taking notes on a pad, but God's got this all wrong.
We are not special.
We are not crap or trash, either.
We just are.
We just are, and what happens just happens.
And God says, "No, that's not right."
Yeah. Well. Whatever. You can't teach God anything. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Asks quotes by Lou Thesz

Asks quotes by Claudia Rankine

#200. He's on money though, right?" Creed asks. "Yeah, he is. How'd he do that if he wasn't president?" "He probably had a big dick." I grin. "Like the bigger it was, the higher the bill you would be on or something?" "Yeah. Poor George," Creed says, laughing. "Of course, I would be on the million-dollar bill. #Quote by T.J. Klune
