Becoming A Hermit quotes by Virgil
#1. No other evil we know is faster than Rumor, thriving on speed and becoming stronger by running. Small and timid at first, then borne on a light air, she flits over ground while hiding her head on a cloud-top. #Quote by Virgil
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Kennedy Ryan
#2. We splinter into a thousand pieces in her kitchen, becoming more together than we were apart. More than we were alone. With whispered promises and words of love, we exchange hearts. #Quote by Kennedy Ryan

Becoming A Hermit quotes by Rajneesh
#4. Every man now is responsible to create a buddhafield around himself, an energy field that goes on becoming bigger and bigger. Create as many vibrations of laughter, joy, celebration, as possible; dance, sing, let the whole of humanity by and by catch the fire of Zen and the wind of Zen. #Quote by Rajneesh
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Tessa Dare
#5. She was entirely unaware of the protocol when becoming acquainted with a man's rampant sex organ. Did she reach out and give it a handshake? Touch one finger to the tip? Bid it a polite howdoyoudo? #Quote by Tessa Dare
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Rabih Alameddine
#6. A phoenix, Beirut seems to always pull itself out its ashes, reinvents itself, has been conquered numerous times in its 7,000-year history, yet it survives by both becoming whatever its conquerors wished it to be and retaining its idiosyncratic persona. #Quote by Rabih Alameddine
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Jimmy Carter
#7. This Voyager spacecraft was constructed by the United States of America. We are a community of 240 million human beings among the more than 4 billion who inhabit the planet Earth. We human beings are still divided into nation states, but these states are rapidly becoming a single global civilization.

We cast this message into the cosmos. It is likely to survive a billion years into our future, when our civilization is profoundly altered and the surface of the Earth may be vastly changed. Of the 200 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy, some--perhaps many--may have inhabited planets and spacefaring civilizations. If one such civilization intercepts Voyager and can understand these recorded contents, here is our message:

This is a present from a small distant world, a token of our sounds, our science, our images, our music, our thoughts, and our feelings. We are attempting to survive our time so we may live into yours. We hope someday, having solved the problems we face, to join a community of galactic civilizations. This record represents our hope and our determination, and our good will in a vast and awesome universe #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Becoming A Hermit quotes by John Kuypers
#8. One of the greatest joys of not judging others is becoming capable of discerning God's will in a difficult situation. Pg 152 #Quote by John Kuypers
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Giorgio Agamben
#9. The friend is not another I, but an otherness immanent in selfness, a becoming other of the self. At the point at which I perceive my existence as pleasant, my perception is traversed by a concurrent perception that dislocates it and deports it towards the friend, towards the other self. Friendship is this desubjectivization at the very heart of the most intimate perception of self. #Quote by Giorgio Agamben
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Anthony Marais
#10. The hermit is he who needs a friend, and in the absence of a community has befriended himself. #Quote by Anthony Marais
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#11. Personal happiness is an end game; it is not an immediate necessity. A person whom attains lasting happiness will necessarily endure many hardships. People earn happiness by courageously braving the storms of life, instead of merely existing. A person must steep oneself in the type of experiences that girds one when times on the streets are the meanest. I will garner a comforting sense of self-satisfaction from taking the longer and more difficult road to personal happiness. I can never again work exclusively for money. I shall seek truth wherever it exists, muster the courage to plunge along headfirst without fear, maintain personal dreams when all hope seems lost, and adamantly refuse to be mollified or satisfied with anything less than my very best work. I will dedicate personal efforts to mining my substratum while maintaining a diligent stewardship of a cherished central individuality. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Anne Frank
#12. After all, he's not my boyfriend! For that matter, he wouldn't be able to tell a healthy sound from an unhealthy one. He'd have to have his ears cleaned first, since he's becoming alarmingly hard of hearing. But enough about my illness. I'm fit as a fiddle again. I've grown almost half an #Quote by Anne Frank
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Laurence Fox
#13. sometimes affection is a shy flower that takes time to blossom. #Quote by Laurence Fox
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Scott Westerfeld
#14. I knew what she was asking, of course. I'd been asking it myself a moment before. But I wasn't sure how you went from dreams to reality without the magic leaking out - or becoming too wild and powerful. #Quote by Scott Westerfeld
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Daniel Suarez
#15. For average working folks, America was becoming a puzzle. Who was buying all these two-hundred-dollar copper saucepans, anyway? And how was everyone paying for these BMWs? Were people shrewd or just stupefyingly irresponsible? #Quote by Daniel Suarez
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Jennifer Topper
#16. ...anyone who willingly turns their life upside down by becoming a cook is totally insane to begin with. So many chefs that I have met are dyslexic and totally not school people or intellectuals. That could be symbolic of the kind of lifestyle that they choose to live. They all drink a lot, do a lot of drugs, drink a shitload of coffee and espresso. They don't sleep much, and obviously don't have much of a life outside the kitchen. A cook's friend is a cook, there isn't much time for a non-cook friend or girlfriend. And time really isn't the issue so much as it's a lifestyle and a culture that is very hard to understand or identify with unless you are on the inside. Cooks hang out with cooks because there is nobody else awake, hungry and totally wired at 2am on a Tuesday. #Quote by Jennifer Topper
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Yasmin Mogahed
#17. Don't think being 'religious' means becoming harsh or hard. When Allah enters a heart, He softens it
He doesn't harden it. #Quote by Yasmin Mogahed
Becoming A Hermit quotes by NeNe Leakes
#18. I love becoming a character outside of who I am. Even when I was a little girl, I loved make believe, so I like it. #Quote by NeNe Leakes
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Annie Elizabeth Delany
#19. Once in a while, God sends a good white person my way, even to this day. I think it's God's way of keeping me from becoming too mean. And when he sends a nice one to me, then I have to eat crow. And honey, crow is a tough old bird to eat, let me tell you. #Quote by Annie Elizabeth Delany
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Tadao Ando
#20. No matter how advanced society becomes, institutionally or technologically, a house in which nature can be sensed represents for me the ideal environment in which to live. From a functional viewpoint, the courtyard of the Rowhouse in Sumiyoshi forces the inhabitant to endure the occasional hardships. At the same time, however, the open courtyard is capable of becoming the house's vital organ, introducing the everyday life and assimilating precious stimuli such as changes in nature. #Quote by Tadao Ando
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Victor Hugo
#21. They appeared very corrupt and very depraved, no doubt, very vile, very odious even; but those who fall without becoming degraded are rare; besides, there is a point where the unfortunate and the infamous unite and are confounded in a single word, a fatal word, the miserable; whose fault is this? And then should not the charity be all the more profound, in proportion as the fall is great? #Quote by Victor Hugo
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Pico Iyer
#22. I worry that travel is becoming more a form of consumerism, whether you live in Santa Monica or Shanghai, than a real exercise in curiosity, and that as the world grows more open and available, going to another country will seem more like going to a cool ethnic supermarket or trendy restaurant than a true journey into shock or difference. #Quote by Pico Iyer
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Koichi Tanaka
#23. When it came time to find employment, I set my sights on becoming an engineer at a home electronics manufacturer, a field that was closely related to my major at university. #Quote by Koichi Tanaka
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#24. Things in which we do not take joy are either a burden upon our minds to be got rid of at any cost; or they are useful, and therefore in temporary and partial relation to us, becoming burdensome when their utility is lost; or they are like wandering vagabonds, loitering for a moment on the outskirts of our recognition, and then passing on. A thing is only completely our own when it is a thing of joy to us. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Katherine Applegate
#25. Jake, our fearless leader. On a crazed kamikaze mission. I'd never seen him like this. Even in our lowest moments, he'd always been steady. Resolute. He weighed the costs, made a decision, forged ahead.
And I'd always wondered how he did it. How he kept it straight in his mind. Yeerks. Visser One. Aliens conquering humans, conquering the planet. Fighting the enemy without becoming like them. How did he sort through all that? The emotions, the ethical dilemmas, the moral crises? How did he wrap his brain around it all so he could make logical decisions? Smart decisions. The kind that saved the lives of his team. The kind that set the enemy back a small step or two.
But now I knew.
Jake didn't understand any of it better than the rest of us did. If he defeated the Yeerks, freed humanity, rescued Earth, that was good. But that was just a bonus. His main goal was much simpler. To save his family. That goal was what had given him strength. That goal was what had kept him sane. Allowed him to retain a center of calm focus amid the awful chaos.
His family. #Quote by Katherine Applegate
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Sylvia Plath
#26. This month is fit for little.
The dead ripen in the grapeleaves.
A red tongue is among us.
Mother, keep out of my barnyard,
I am becoming another.
Dog-head, devourer:
Feed me the berries of dark.
The lids won't shut. Time
Unwinds from the great umbilicus of the sun
its endless glitter.
I must swallow it all.
Lady, who are those others in the moons' vat-
Sleepdrunk, their limbs at odds?
In this light the blood is black.
Tell me my name. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Ernest Becker
#27. Freud's greatest discovery, the one which lies at the root of psychodynamics, is that the great cause of much psychological illness is the fear of knowledge of oneself-one one's emotions, impulses, memories, capacities, potentialities, of ones' destiny. We have discovered that fear of knowledge of oneself is very often isomorphic with, and parallel with, fear of the outside world.

And what is this fear, but a fear of the reality of creation in relation to our powers and possibilities:

In general this kind of fear is defensive, in the sense that it is a protection of our self-esteem, of our love and respect for ourselves. We tend to be afraid of any knowledge that could cause us to despise ourselves or to make us feel inferior, weak, worthless, evil, shameful. We protect ourselves and our ideal image of ourselves by repression and similar defenses, which are essentially techniques by which we avoid becoming conscious of unpleasant or dangerous truths. #Quote by Ernest Becker
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Kenny Smith
#28. We should bear the intelligence and taste of the architect or the gardener in how we shape the becoming of our self. Too much precision ("stringency") is simply misplaced, a formalism inappropriate to the kind of matter we have to deal with (and to be). #Quote by Kenny Smith
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Wayne W. Dyer
#29. Practice thinking peace. Remember, you become what you think about all day long. How often do you clutter your mind with thoughts of nonpeace? How many times a day do you say out loud how terrible the world is? How violent we have all become? How uncaring we seem to be? How racist we are? How little the government cares about us? All of these thoughts and their expression are indications that you have become trapped in a nonpeaceful mind and, therefore, a nonpeaceful world. Every time you bemoan the horrors of the world, or listen to media reports on all that is evil, or read tabloids that exploit the unpleasant facts about other's lives, you are continuing the conditioning that takes you away from becoming an instrument of thy peace. #Quote by Wayne W. Dyer
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Atticus Poetry
#30. We are all born free
and spend a lifetime
becoming slaves
to our own
false truths. #Quote by Atticus Poetry
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#31. Not because you are religious, but because I myself have experienced and felt it keenly, I will tell you that in such moments one thirsts like "parched grass" for faith and finds it precisely because truth shines in misfortune. I will tell you regarding myself that I am a child of the age, a child of nonbelief and doubt up till now and even (I know it) until my coffin closes. What terrible torments this thirst to believe has cost me and still costs me, becoming stronger in my soul, the more there is in me of contrary reasonings. And yet sometimes God sends me moments in which I am utterly at peace. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Anthony Hopkins
#32. I couldn't say I ever dreamt of becoming a composer, a pianist, or anything else for that matter. I have the kind of brain where nothing is set in stone. #Quote by Anthony Hopkins
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Emile M. Cioran
#33. Utopia is the grotesque en rose, the need to associate happiness
that is, the improbable
with becoming, and to coerce an optimistic, aerial vision to the point where it rejoins its own source: the very cynicism it sought to combat. In short, a monstrous fantasy. #Quote by Emile M. Cioran
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Archibald Marwizi
#34. Once you make the requisite personal commitment to make your success deliberate, that commitment must translate into a definition of higher personal standards meant to depict the true impression of what you have become or are becoming within. #Quote by Archibald Marwizi
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#35. Becoming a person, of course, means finding your people, and your place among them #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Paulo Coelho
#36. Becoming conscious of three important things:
First, as soon as people decide to confront a problem, they realize that they are far more capable than they thought they were.
Second, all energy and all knowledge come from the same unknown source, which we usually call God. What I've tried to do in my life, ever since I first started out on what I believe to be my path, is to honour that energy, to connect up with it every day, to allow myself to be guided by the signs, to learn by doing and not by thinking about doing.
Third, that no one is alone in their troubles; there is always someone else thinking, rejoicing, or suffering in the same way, and that gives us the strength to confront the challenge before us. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Jose P. Rizal
#37. It is a useless life that is not consecrated to a great deal. It is like a stone wasted on the field without becoming a part of any edifice. #Quote by Jose P. Rizal
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Neil Gaiman
#38. You cannot hear a poem without it changing you," she told me. "They heard it, and it colonized them. It inherited them and it inhabited them, its rhythms becoming part of the way that they thought; its images permanently transmuting their metaphors; its verses, its outlook, its aspirations becoming their lives. Within a generation their children would be born already knowing the poem, and, sooner rather than later, as these things go, there were no more children born. There was no need for them, not any longer. There was only a poem, which took flesh and walked and spread itself across the vastness of the known. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Laura Kasischke
#39. It's impossible to imagine my mother like that. I cannot imagine her softened, thawed, decayed, becoming sweeter as she spoils. I imagine her trapped in a mirror instead. A permanent image of her locked into a rectangle of hard brightness, open-eyed. #Quote by Laura Kasischke
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Ian McEwan
#40. Becoming drunk is a journey that generally elates him in the early stages - he's good company, expansive, mischievous and fun, the famous old poet, almost as happy listening as talking. But once the destination is met, once established up there on that unsunny plateau, a fully qualified drunk, the nastier muses, the goblins of aggression, paranoia, self-pity take control. The expectation now is that an evening with John will go bad somehow, unless everyone around is prepared to toil at humouring and flattering and hours of frozen-faced listening. No one will be. #Quote by Ian McEwan
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Juliet Marillier
#41. In the old tales, when people undertake quests, they find themselves fighting dragons or serpents or giant dogs. Or maybe a dark warrior of some kind, folk who are enemies from the start. But it's far more frightening when someone seems friendly and good, and turns out to be different altogether. The odd and uncanny are not terrifying in themselves. The most disturbing thing is the ordinary turned strange. Things familiar and safe becoming not right. #Quote by Juliet Marillier
Becoming A Hermit quotes by Marcos C. Lima
#42. We argue that the role of teachers is becoming less that of a knowledge transmitter, and closer to that of an "animator of collective intelligence" who provides analytical tools (the proverbial "fishing rod") rather than simply giving away raw information ("fish"). #Quote by Marcos C. Lima
