Becoming quotes by Marina & The Diamonds
#1. Homewrecker"

Every boyfriend is the one
Until otherwise proven
The good are never easy
The easy never good
And love it never happens like you think it really should

Deception and perfection are wonderful traits
One will breed love
The other hate
You'll find me in the lonely hearts
Under 'I'm after a brand new start'

And I don't belong to anyone

They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker

Girls and their curls and their gourmet vomit
Boys and their toys and their six inch rockets
We're all very lovely 'til we get to know each other
As we stop becoming friends and we start becoming lovers

And I don't belong to anyone

They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I broke a million hearts just for fun)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I broke a million hearts just for fun)

I'm only happy when I'm on the run
I break a million hearts just for fun
I don't belong to anyone

I guess you could say that my life's a mess
But I'm still looking pretty in this dress
I'm the image of deception

When everything is life and death
You may feel like there's nothing left
Instead of love #Quote by Marina & The Diamonds
Becoming quotes by Melanie Joy
#2. Becoming aware of the intense suffering of billions of animals, and of our own participation in that suffering, can bring up painful emotions: sorrow and grief for the animals; anger at the injustice and deception of the system; despair at the enormity of the problem; fear that trusted authorities and institutions are, in fact, untrustworthy; and guilt for having contributed to the problem. Bearing witness means choosing to suffer. Indeed, empathy is literally 'feeling with.' Choosing to suffer is particularly difficult in a culture that is addicted to comfort
a culture that teaches that pain should be avoided whenever possible and that ignorance is bliss. We can reduce our resistance to witnessing by valuing authenticity over personal pleasure, and integration over ignorance. #Quote by Melanie Joy
Becoming quotes by Lena Dunham
#3. I should do the things that make me feel cool and smart. As I get older, I'm realizing more and more that it doesn't really matter if I'm good at it, it just matters that I try. My own effort, my own willingness, are becoming what's appealing to me. #Quote by Lena Dunham
Becoming quotes by Debasish Mridha
#4. The highest freedom of mind comes from becoming non-judgmental. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Becoming quotes by Henry Cloud
#5. getting better is not about just 'willing' better performance. It's about becoming someone who performs better, and performs differently. #Quote by Henry Cloud
Becoming quotes by Christopher Shays
#6. We knew shortly after the war that our troops were becoming ill. #Quote by Christopher Shays
Becoming quotes by Brian Tracy
#7. If you have a clear goal and a plan to achieve it, your focus is fixed on a set course of action. Instead of becoming sidetracked by distractions and diversions, your time is focused on a straight line from start to finish. #Quote by Brian Tracy
Becoming quotes by Jaime Lerner
#8. There are three major issues now that are becoming important, not only for cities, but for all mankind: Mobility, sustainability - which is linked to mobility - and social diversity. #Quote by Jaime Lerner
Becoming quotes by Armstrong Williams
#9. The country remains dependent on oil. But as we are now learning, oil is becoming increasingly scarce. #Quote by Armstrong Williams
Becoming quotes by Nadine Labaki
#10. It's a different point of view on the world and it's different issues and it's important. It's healthy to have both, and more and more women are becoming of aware of that. And when you are aware of how strong of an impact it has on people - it changes things. #Quote by Nadine Labaki
Becoming quotes by Stephen Beal
#11. On Becoming a Poet in the 1950s"

There was love and there was trees.
Either you could stay inside and probe your emotions
or you could go outside and keenly observe nature.
Describe the sheen on carapaces,
the effect of breeze on grass.

What's the fag doing now? Dad would say.
Picking the nose of his heart?
Wanking off on a daffodil?

He's not homosexual, Mom would retort, using her apron as a potholder to
remove the apple brown betty from the oven.
He's sensitive. He cares.
He wishes to impart values and standards to an indifferent world.

Wow! said Dad, stomping off to the pantry for another scotch. Two poets in
the family. Ain't I a lucky duck?

As fate would have it, I became one of your tweedy English teachers, what
Dad would call a daffodil-wanker,
and Mom ended up doing needlepoint, seventy-two kneelers for St. Fred's
before she expired of the heart broken on the afternoon that Dad
roared off with the Hell's Angels.
We heard a little from Big Sur. A beard. Tattoos. A girlfriend named Strawberry.
A boyfriend named Thor.
Bars and pot and coffeehouses, stuff like that.

After years of quotation by younger poets, admiration but no real notice,
Dad is making the anthologies now.
Critics cite his primal rage, the way he nails Winnetka. #Quote by Stephen Beal
Becoming quotes by Torron-Lee Dewar
#12. While you're worrying about becoming famous, there is someone out there putting in work and not wasting a second of their time. Which person will you be? #Quote by Torron-Lee Dewar
Becoming quotes by Jewel
#13. I'm becoming more and more myself with time. I guess that's what grace is. The refinement of your soul through time. #Quote by Jewel
Becoming quotes by Edwin O'Connor
#14. I've often thought that among all the afflicting sights of the world, none can be much more so than this one short walk along three city blocks, where night after night it's possible to see--indeed, it's impossible not to see--these faces from which hope and joy and dignity and light have been draining so steadily and for so long that now there is nothing left but this assortment of indifferent, damaged masks. They belong to human beings who, after a lifetime of struggling to become one thing or another, have succeeded only in becoming the rough sketches of their species, recognizable but empty, the bruised and wretched bodies and souls of the saddest people on earth: the people who no longer care. #Quote by Edwin O'Connor
Becoming quotes by Gavriel Savit
#15. To keep yourself from becoming an instrument of death, you kill? #Quote by Gavriel Savit
Becoming quotes by Jeremy Camp
#16. I felt myself becoming angry too easily. I once saw a couple at a restaurant, and I could tell from their mannerisms that they were having some type of disagreement. I got mad at the guy and wanted to tell him, "Come on – appreciate your wife! #Quote by Jeremy Camp
Becoming quotes by Julia Kent
#17. Delusion has a way of becoming part of life when you least expect it, or maybe when you most need it. #Quote by Julia Kent
Becoming quotes by Rick Warren
#18. Fear is a self imposed prison that will keep you from becoming what God intends for you to be. You must move against it with the weapons of faith and love. #Quote by Rick Warren
Becoming quotes by Oswald Chambers
#19. The Lord Himself is the one standard of conduct and character in the New Testament. People do not object to a man or a woman becoming outwardly holy, but they do object to his or her becoming a personal devotee of Jesus Christ. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Becoming quotes by Meg Rosoff
#20. I've spent most of my life trying to wear a persona that didn't quite fit and when I started writing books, it was like finally becoming the right person. #Quote by Meg Rosoff
Becoming quotes by T.D. Jakes
#21. Will you bring life to your dream or will you allow it to die of neglect? It is absolutely true that you have a divine summons to fulfill, but it's not automatic and it's not guaranteed. You are the major player who must give yourself fully to the process of becoming. #Quote by T.D. Jakes
Becoming quotes by R.F. Kuang
#22. We don't die so much as we return to the void. We dissolve. We lose our ego. We change from being just one thing to becoming everything. Most of us, at least. #Quote by R.F. Kuang
Becoming quotes by Frances Hardinge
#23. Again Mosca felt she was up in the rafters, watching the mice. Little mouse, witless with fear. Running the wrong way. And here she was, just watching. Becoming a part of it by doing nothing. #Quote by Frances Hardinge
Becoming quotes by Steve Harvey
#24. THE MORE PEOPLE YOU HELP BECOME SUCCESSFUL, THE MORE SUCCESSFUL YOU BECOME. #Quote by Steve Harvey
Becoming quotes by Joseph Fink
#25. Diane sometimes hears that Troy is an actuary. Sometimes she hears Troy is a florist. Sometimes she hears Troy is a cop, a toll collector, a professor, a musician, a stand-up comedian. Once, she heard a terrible rumor he became a librarian but she could not imagine Troy becoming the darkest of evil beasts no matter what he had done to her. Is it even possible for a human to become a librarian? #Quote by Joseph Fink
Becoming quotes by Karl Marx
#26. For as soon as the distribution of labour comes into being, each man has a particular, exclusive sphere of activity, which is forced upon him and from which he cannot escape. He is a hunter, a fisherman, a herdsman, or a critical critic, and must remain so if he does not want to lose his means of livelihood; while in communist society, where nobody has one exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch he wishes, society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticise after dinner, just as I have a mind, without ever becoming hunter, fisherman, herdsman or critic. #Quote by Karl Marx
Becoming quotes by Willa Cather
#27. Since then she had changed so much in her thoughts, in her ways, even in her looks, that she might wonder she knew herself
except that the changes were all in the direction of becoming more and more herself. #Quote by Willa Cather
Becoming quotes by Isao Takahata
#28. Like it or not, a caterpillar must first live as a chrysalis before becoming a butterfly. Maybe I remember those days because I am going through a chrysalis stage. #Quote by Isao Takahata
Becoming quotes by Alfonso Maria De Liguori
#29. 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
Becoming quotes by Gemma Files
#30. Rhythm becoming thought, thought becoming memory; memory, which tends to shuck itself, to peel away. You get older, look back through a child's tunnel vision, and realize you never knew the whole that tied the details together. You were just along for the ride, moving from experience to experience, a flat spectacle, some kind of guideless tour. You remember--or think you remember--what happened, but not where, or why. What you did, but not with who. Details fade. People's names get lost in the white noise. #Quote by Gemma Files
Becoming quotes by Lemmy Kilmister
#31. It seems that our brave new world is becoming less tolerant, spiritual and educated than it ever was when I was young. #Quote by Lemmy Kilmister
Becoming quotes by George Eliot
#32. Her future, she thought, was likely to be worse than her past, for after her years of contented renunciation, she had slipped back into desire and longing; she found joyless days of distasteful occupation harder and harder; she found the image of the intense and varied life she yearned for, and despaired of, becoming more and more importunate. #Quote by George Eliot
Becoming quotes by Louie Giglio
#33. Worship is our response to what we value most. As a result, worship fuels our actions, becoming the driving force of all we do. #Quote by Louie Giglio
Becoming quotes by Niklas Zennstrom
#34. When a business becomes successful seemingly overnight, no one knows about all the months and years you've invested, all the projects you've tried before that didn't work. #Quote by Niklas Zennstrom
Becoming quotes by America Ferrera
#35. I think Hispanic women are beautiful with their curves. I'm not sure who feels that way in Hollywood. I was never told to lose 50 pounds. If they think that they just don't bother with you. You just don't get the role and you never know why. That's still better than physically harming yourself and becoming unhealthy just to star in a movie. #Quote by America Ferrera
Becoming quotes by John Hodgman
#36. Don't concentrate on becoming a better humor writer, just concentrate on being the best writer that you can become. If you're funny, the work will end up being funny. And if you're not funny, the work will still end up being good. Concentrate on being the most honest writer you can be, and let everything else follow--because it will. #Quote by John Hodgman
Becoming quotes by Jeffrey Fischer
#37. Humanity suffers terribly from the demons it has created over lengths of time.
we learn from nothing that we do. we create religions, heritage, race, traditions, then they all in turn become our stumbling blocks from becoming one. we suffer from the creations of our own inability to interpret history. the only thing we have succeded on is seperation.we are not that different from one another as we think we are. but we are too corrupted to break our deconstruction. #Quote by Jeffrey Fischer
Becoming quotes by Michael Leunig
#38. Democracy just isn't working any more; without sanity at its heart, it is becoming a most unique and fiendish tyranny. #Quote by Michael Leunig
Becoming quotes by Rajneesh
#39. Just seeing the fact that this is an attachment, that attachment is a bondage - a beautiful word for bondage - that attachment is not love ... just seeing the ugliness of attachment - it drops; then arises love. The same energy that was becoming attachment, released from attachment becomes a totally different energy; it becomes love. #Quote by Rajneesh
Becoming quotes by Gerald M. Weinberg
#40. Leadership is familiar, but not well understood. #Quote by Gerald M. Weinberg
Becoming quotes by Vinnie Jones
#41. For some people, becoming a parent does change them, but it never changed me. #Quote by Vinnie Jones
Becoming quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#42. Becoming a person, of course, means finding your people, and your place among them #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
Becoming quotes by Robert Moss
#43. The struggle inside the cocoon between the defenders of the worm state and the agents of winged possibility is one that I was still living, one that many of us surely experience in times of spiritual emergence. We may find ourselves pounded into mush, hanging upside down from whatever we can cling to - and yet have the possibility and destiny of becoming much, much more. #Quote by Robert Moss
Becoming quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#44. Moreover, I have boundary issues with men. Or maybe that's not fair to say. To have issues with boundaries, one must have boundaries in the first place, right? But I disappear into
the person I love. I am the permeable membrane. If I love you, you can have everything. You can have my time, my devotion, my ass, my money, my family, my dog, my dog's money, my
dog's time - everything. If I love you, I will carry for you all your pain, I will assume for you all your debts (in every definition of the word), I will protect you from your own insecurity, I will project upon you all sorts of good qualities that you have never actually cultivated in yourself and I will buy Christmas presents for your entire family. I will give you the sun and the rain, and if they are not available, I will give you a sun check and a rain check. I will give you all this and more, until I get so exhausted and depleted that the only way I can recover my energy is by becoming infatuated with someone else.
I do not relay these facts about myself with pride, but this is how it's always been.
Some time after I'd left my husband, I was at a party and a guy I barely knew said to me, "You know, you seem like a completely different person, now that you're with this new boyfriend. You used to look like your husband, but now you look like David. You even dress like
him and talk like him. You know how some people look like their dogs? I think maybe you always look like your men. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Becoming quotes by John Piper
#45. Just being an obedient Christian is increasingly becoming a social, political, legal issue ... #Quote by John Piper
Becoming quotes by Margaret Mead
#46. Women should be permitted to volunteer for non-combat service, [ ... ] We have no real way of knowing whether the kinds of training that teach men both courage and restraint would be adaptable to women or effective in a crisis. But the evidence of history and comparative studies of other species suggest that women as a fighting body might be far less amenable to the rules that prevent war from becoming a massacre and, with the use of modern weapons, that protect the survival of all humanity. That is what I meant by saying that women in combat might be too fierce. #Quote by Margaret Mead
Becoming quotes by Peter Schjeldahl
#47. Picasso had nicknamed Georges Braque "Wilbur," thereby becoming "Orville" in their Wright Brothers-like ambition to get painting off the ground of conventional representation. #Quote by Peter Schjeldahl
Becoming quotes by Frederick Lenz
#48. Buddhism is simply a methodology, a way of becoming one with the part of ourselves that is happy. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Becoming quotes by Scott Westerfeld
#49. We don't have to look like everyone else...and act like everyone else. We've got a choice. We can grow up any way we want...It's about becoming what I want to become, not what some surgical committee thinks I should. #Quote by Scott Westerfeld
Becoming quotes by J.D. Salinger
#50. You take a really sleepy man, Esmé, and he always stands a chance of again becoming a man with all his fac - with all his f-a-c-u-l-t-i-e-s intact. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Becoming quotes by Sarah Ferguson
#51. I had often tried to get out of your room, having travelled all the way there. It frightened me to be caught in a trap which was becoming painful, and one from which I had no escape. (23) #Quote by Sarah Ferguson
Becoming quotes by Adrienne Rich
#52. Every act of becoming conscious
(it says here in this book)
is an unnatural act #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Becoming quotes by Gillian Flynn
#53. My dad was a man of infinite varieties of bitterness, rage, distaste. In my lifelong struggle to avoid becoming him, I'd developed an inability to demonstrate much negative emotion at all. #Quote by Gillian Flynn
Becoming quotes by Richard Stallman
#54. I don't have a problem with someone using their talents to become successful, I just don't think the highest calling is success. Things like freedom and the expansion of knowledge are beyond success, beyond the personal. Personal success is not wrong, but it is limited in importance, and once you have enough of it it is a shame to keep striving for that, instead of for truth, beauty, or justice. #Quote by Richard Stallman
Becoming quotes by Michael Palmer
#55. When you're becoming overwhelmed, just make a list. Make a list and do one thing at a time. #Quote by Michael Palmer
Becoming quotes by Cynthia McKinney
#56. The situation in the United States is becoming more dire for average ordinary Americans and the last thing we need to do is to spend money on death, destruction and war. #Quote by Cynthia McKinney
Becoming quotes by David Gelles
#57. By slapping the word mindfulness on new products and services simply to make them fashionable, these corporations are making the word itself somewhat impotent. "Mindfulness" is at risk of becoming the new "organic. #Quote by David Gelles
Becoming quotes by Martin Heidegger
#58. To this man, who overcomes himself, Nietzsche gives a name which is easily misunderstood. He calls him 'the superman'. But Nietzsche does not mean a type who casts off 'humanity,' to make sheer caprice the law and titanic rage the rule. The superman is the man who first leads the essential nature of existing man over into its truth, and so assumes that truth. Existing man, by being thus determined and secured, in his essential nature, is to be rendered capable of becoming the future master of the earth - of wielding to high purpose the powers that will fall to future man in the nature of the technological transformation of the earth and of human activity. The essential figure of this man, the superman rightly understood, is not a product of an unbridled and degenerate imagination rushing headlong into the void. #Quote by Martin Heidegger
Becoming quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#59. Each time I stopped I stripped myself of something vitally important. I was, becoming my own enemy! And I can't tell you how it hurt me when I found that out. What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step. It is always the same step, but you have to take it. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Becoming quotes by Kent Nerburn
#60. Loneliness is like sitting in an empty room and being aware of the space around you. It is a condition of separateness. Solitude is becoming one with the space around you. It is a condition of union. Loneliness is small, solitude is large. Loneliness closes in around you; solitude expands toward the infinite. Loneliness has its roots in words, in an internal conversation that nobody answers; solitude has its roots in the great silence of eternity. #Quote by Kent Nerburn
Becoming quotes by Shepard Fairey
#61. I think the biggest thing that people fear when it comes to art becoming a business is those authentic, pure aspirations of art being compromised. #Quote by Shepard Fairey
Becoming quotes by Juan Enriquez
#62. The housing crisis may not be the worst thing that's happened to New York City because it was becoming impossible for some of the young doctors, for some of the young artists, for some of the people that make the city so special to be able to live here. #Quote by Juan Enriquez
Becoming quotes by Paulo Coelho
#63. 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 quotes by Zadie Smith
#64. While she was becoming, everyone grew up and became. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Becoming quotes by N.J. Lysk
#65. The moment it was over I knew I shouldn't have done it. It was fucked up on so many levels that it didn't even feel right to hold Dan close to me in what had been our bed less than a month earlier. Dan loved me, I knew he did. It wasn't fair of me to lead him on, even if I had broken up with him just before fucking him. But it wasn't just that, the rest of it wasn't right either. The knowledge of what I no longer was in my family's view but forever, for whoever looked upon me, marked on my body, a lack so fundamental and obvious that some would refuse to call me a man. And what would happen to me because of that, the way my body was even in that moment changing to accommodate someone else's desires, the way I was becoming what Brennan had decided I needed to be. For the first time, it wasn't a mere omission but an outright lie. To be in that bed next to Dan was taking up the space that belonged to someone else, someone we had both loved and who was now gone. That life was over, done. #Quote by N.J. Lysk
Becoming quotes by Larry Doyle
#66. Jelly had no brain per se but was in essence all brain, a shared consciousness programmed for desire. He had an appetite for everything, voraciously absorbing the culture that surrounded him and becoming it, only louder. In other words, he was extremely teenaged. #Quote by Larry Doyle
Becoming quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#67. If we take a man as he is, we make him worse, but if we take man as he should be we make him capable of becoming what he can be. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Becoming quotes by Frederick Lenz
#68. To suffer because of anything you see, feel or experience here in the world of moment to moment is a mistake. It is like becoming upset over a frightening dream. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Becoming quotes by Danilo Kis
#69. You can't play the role of a victim all your life without becoming one in the end. #Quote by Danilo Kis
Becoming quotes by Grazia Deledda
#70. The feast lasted nine days, the last three becoming a continuous circle dance accompanied by songs and music. Noemi always stayed on the belvedere among the banquet remains. ... No, she didn't dance, she didn't laugh, but it was enough for her to see people enjoying themselves, because she too hoped to take part in the festival of life. #Quote by Grazia Deledda
Becoming quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#71. They could do anything. That, however, was part of what made it difficult to bring [it] to a close. Infinite possibility was going to collapse, in the act of choosing, to the single world line of history. The future becoming the past: there was something disappointing in this passage through the loom, this so-sudden diminution from infinity to one, the collapse from potentiality to reality which was the action of time itself. The potential was so delicious - the way they could have, potentially, all the best parts of all...time, combined magically into some superb, as-yet-unseen synthesis - or throw all that aside, and finally strike a new path to the heart of just government. . . .To go from that to the mundane problematic...was an inevitable letdown, and instinctively people put it off. #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Becoming quotes by Elizabeth Blackburn
#72. We and other groups are seeing clear statistical links between telomere shortness and risk for a variety of diseases that are becoming very common, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and certain cancers. #Quote by Elizabeth Blackburn
Becoming quotes by William Wilberforce
#73. Let true Christians then, with becoming earnestness, strive in all things to recommend their profession, and to put to silence the vain scoffs of ignorant objectors. Let them boldly assert the cause of Christ in an age when so many, who bear the name of Christians, are ashamed of Him: and let them consider as devolved on Them the important duty of suspending for a while the fall of their country, and, perhaps, of performing a still more extensive service to society at large; not by busy interference in politics, in which it cannot but be confessed there is much uncertainty; but rather by that sure and radical benefit of restoring the influence of Religion, and of raising the standard of morality. #Quote by William Wilberforce
Becoming quotes by Michael Keaton
#74. I reached a point where I didn't think I was that great. I'm not being humble. I was looking at things and thinking: 'You're not really good in that'. I think I was becoming boring as well as bored. It was nobody's fault except mine - probably - and it might not even be my fault. #Quote by Michael Keaton
Becoming quotes by Shelley Duvall
#75. Having been an actress before becoming a producer has helped, because I realize the needs. #Quote by Shelley Duvall
Becoming quotes by Clay Shirky
#76. Sharing thoughts and expressions and even actions with others, possibly many others, is becoming a normal opportunity, not just for professionals and experts but for anyone who wants it. This opportunity can work on scales and over duration that were previously unimaginable. Unlike personal or communal value, public value requires not just new opportunities for old motivations; it requires governance, which is to say ways of discouraging or preventing people from wrecking either the process or the product of the group. #Quote by Clay Shirky
Becoming quotes by Logan Kain
#77. I've long considered becoming a writer to be the death of nightmares. For me at least, since I started writing I hadn't had any. Something really terrible or awful happens in a dream and you wake up and think, awesome, and reach for a pen and paper. #Quote by Logan Kain
Becoming quotes by Dexter Palmer
#78. This is why it's good manners to give gifts in wrappers: so that, for a moment, that beast in all of us that makes us feel alive and keeps us from becoming angels can be satisfied. While a gift is in a wrapper, it can be anything, even that one indescribable thing that will make us happy enough to die in peace. #Quote by Dexter Palmer
Becoming quotes by Amy Hatvany
#79. Humiliation is about shame. Becoming humble is about being of use to others. It helps you get off the self-pity pot and stop wallowing around in your own crap. #Quote by Amy Hatvany
Becoming quotes by Scott Bakula
#80. When you get into any kind of period work, or any kind of prosthetic work, or anything that alters what your 8x10 looks like, it's the joy of escaping and becoming somebody else. And it is definitely freeing. #Quote by Scott Bakula
Becoming quotes by Anaxagoras
#81. Wrongly do the Greeks suppose that aught begins or ceases to be; for nothing comes into being or is destroyed; but all is an aggregation or secretion of preexisting things; so that all becoming might more correctly be called becoming mixed, and all corruption, becoming separate. #Quote by Anaxagoras
Becoming quotes by Timothy Keller
#82. Peter is saying that the fiery furnace does not automatically make us better. We must recognize, depend on, speak with, and believe in God while in the fire. God himself says in Isaiah 43 that he will be with us, walking beside us in the fire. Knowing him personally while in our affliction is the key to becoming stronger rather than weaker in it. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Becoming quotes by E.L. James
#83. You're becoming insatiable," he murmurs. "I've only got a taste for you," I whisper. #Quote by E.L. James
Becoming quotes by Freddie Stroma
#84. I left Facebook after Facebook groups began appearing about me and suddenly your personal photographs start becoming public property. #Quote by Freddie Stroma
Becoming quotes by Christina Engela
#85. You are strong, tempered like steel in the fire and by the blows of the hammer of life. Nothing will break you again, only make you stronger and more whole. Perfection is the pride of those who have not lived, who know not these things in their arrogance. They remain the same - raw and without form. The hammer never touches them, and they lie on the shelf, gathering dust, slowly tarnishing and fading and crumbling. the blows of the hammer in the fire refine us into bright shining glory for the roles we play in life - until we are one with the anvil, becoming immune to the hammer's little knocks, and smile at it. #Quote by Christina Engela
Becoming quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#86. Reason is the cause of our falsification of the evidence of the senses. In so far as the senses show becoming, passing away, change, they do not lie. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Becoming quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#87. Easy. They just let us forget. Give us too much to process, fill up every minute, keep us distracted, it's what the Tube is for, and though it kills me to say it, it's what rock and roll is becoming - just another way to claim our attention, so that beautiful certainty we had starts to fade, and after a while they have us convinced all over again that we really are going to die. And they've got us again. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Becoming quotes by Roxane Gay
#88. This is the woman who brought us the idea of living our best life, of becoming our most authentic selves. And yet. In 2015, Oprah Winfrey bought a 10 percent stake in Weight Watchers, an investment of $40 million. In one of her many commercials for the brand, she says, 'Let's make this the year of our best body.' The implication is, of course, that our current bodies are not our best bodies, not by a long shot. It is startling to realize that even Oprah, a woman in her early sixties, a billionaire and one of the most famous women in the world, isn't happy with herself, her body. This is how pervasive damaging cultural messages about unruly bodies are – that even as we age, no matter what material status we achieve, we cannot be satisfied or happy unless we are also thin. #Quote by Roxane Gay
Becoming quotes by Frederick Lenz
#89. It is not special to be enlightened, just different. An enlightened person is someone who has dedicated not just this lifetime but thousands of lifetimes to becoming awareness. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Becoming quotes by Barkhad Abdi
#90. I was never interested in becoming an actor. I was directing videos. I was never into acting. I was into shooting music videos. I've only ever been behind the camera. Never in front of it. #Quote by Barkhad Abdi
Becoming quotes by Jai Courtney
#91. You get involved with a studio, and optional pictures and sequel options and that sort of thing are becoming part and parcel with the roles they're handing out. #Quote by Jai Courtney
Becoming quotes by E. E. Cummings
#92. You and I wear the dangerous looseness of doom and find it becoming. Life,for eternal us,is now;and now is much too busy being a little more than everything to seem anything,catastrophic included. #Quote by E. E. Cummings
Becoming quotes by Sean Parker
#93. I suffer from the delusion that every product of my imagination is not only possible, but always on the cusp of becoming real. #Quote by Sean Parker
Becoming quotes by Dalai Lama
#94. There is a common perception that compassion is, if not actually an impediment, at least irrelevant to professional life. Personally, I would argue that not only is it relevant, but that when compassion is lacking, our activities are in danger of becoming destructive. This is because when we ignore the question of the impact our actions have on others' well-being, inevitably we end up hurting them. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Becoming quotes by Diana Butler Bass
#95. Hospitality is the practice that keeps the church from becoming a club, a members-only society. #Quote by Diana Butler Bass
Becoming quotes by Aristotle.
#96. It is well said, then, that it is by doing just acts that the just man is produced, and by doing temperate acts the temperate man; without doing these no one would have even a prospect of becoming good. #Quote by Aristotle.
Becoming quotes by Rashmi Bansal
#97. The very act of becoming an entrepreneur is contrarian to middle class values, study hard, get a good job, be happy with secure income and steady salary. #Quote by Rashmi Bansal
Becoming quotes by Mandy Hale
#98. So many people bump into our lives for a second and it changes us forever, but they never know it. And while that's funny and strange and a little sad, it's also just life. And the truth of the matter is, it was never really about them anyway. It was always about us and what we were meant to learn from them. It was always about us and who we were meant to BECOME as a result of having encountered them. #Quote by Mandy Hale
Becoming quotes by Shana Alexander
#99. The difficulty with becoming a patient is that as soon as you get horizontal, part of your being yearns, not for a doctor, but for a medicine man. #Quote by Shana Alexander
Becoming quotes by Jeff Lindsay
#100. We all make rules for ourselves. It's these rules that help define who we are. So when we break those rules, we risk losing ourselves and becoming something unknown. Who is Deb now? Who am I? Is this a new beginning? Or the beginning of the end? #Quote by Jeff Lindsay
Becoming quotes by Shirley Bassey
#101. In truth, it requires not only a large intellect, but a large heart, to judge with becoming charity of the peculiar temptations of riches. #Quote by Shirley Bassey
Becoming quotes by Jean-Paul Sartre
#102. He is always becoming, and if it were not for the contingency of death, he would never end. #Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre
Becoming quotes by Christopher Dines
#103. Love addicts often pick partners who are emotionally unavailable because deep down, they don't feel worthy of having a healthy, loving relationship. A love addict craves and obsesses about becoming enmeshed or 'one' with another human being at all costs, even if it means putting themselves in potential danger. #Quote by Christopher Dines
Becoming quotes by K.P. Yohannan
#104. We pretend with a spiritual life we don't live, a peace we don't experience and a holiness and commitment we don't possess ... We will never make any progress in becoming more like Jesus unless we permit God to cut us open, search our hearts, try us, know our thoughts and then change us from the inside. Only then can we become real according to the Word of God. #Quote by K.P. Yohannan
Becoming quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#105. In time the glowing, cratered moon began its seeming rise from the sea, casting a prism of light across the slowly darkening water, splitting itself into a thousand different parts, each more beautiful than the last. At exactly the same moment, the sun was meeting the horizon in the opposite direction, turning the sky red and orange and yellow, as if heaven above had suddenly opened its gates and let all its beauty escape its holy confines. The ocean turned golden silver as the shifting colors reflected off it, waters rippling and sparkling with the changing light, the vision glorious, almost like the beginning of time. The sun continued to lower itself, casting its glow as far as the eye could see, before finally, slowly, vanishing beneath the waves. The moon continued its slow drift upward, shimmering as it turned a thousand different shades of yellow, each paler than the last, before finally becoming the color of the stars. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Becoming quotes by Raphael Zernoff
#106. Awakening is a different name for raising one's frequency. It is about becoming more aware of different perspectives, from which you may choose whatever you resonate with. #Quote by Raphael Zernoff
Becoming quotes by B.K.S. Iyengar
#107. As long as you do not feel the serenity in the body, in each and every joint, there is no chance for emancipation. You are in bondage. So while you are sweating and aching, let your heart be light and let it fill your body with gladness. You are not only becoming free, but you are also being free. What is not to be glad about? The pain is temporary. The freedom is permanent. #Quote by B.K.S. Iyengar
Becoming quotes by Terry Pratchett
#108. She prowled the city on moonlit nights, and OK, there was the occasional chicken, but she always remembered where she'd been and went round the next day to shove some money under the door. It was hard to be a vegetarian who had to pick bits of meat out of her teeth in the morning. She was definately on top of it, though. It was easy to be a vegetarian by day. It was preventing yourself from becoming a humanitarian at night that took the real effort. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Becoming quotes by John Banville
#109. I think I am becoming my own ghost. #Quote by John Banville
Becoming quotes by Ezra Miller
#110. I went to a school that was founded on a lot of very radical ideals of how education should be changed. But what's happening to schools like that sort of all over the country is in economic pressure they're becoming more and more preparatory because that's what people will really pay the money for private schooling for now. #Quote by Ezra Miller
Becoming quotes by Douglas Adams
#111. I don't think anybody would argue now that the Internet isn't becoming a major factor in our lives. However, it's very new to us. Newsreaders still feel it is worth a special and rather worrying mention if, for instance, a crime was planned by people 'over the Internet.' #Quote by Douglas Adams
Becoming quotes by Graham Swift
#112. I had a fear of becoming anything, a fear of becoming a specialist. I might have become a doctor, but if you become a doctor, that's your specialty in life and you are defined by it. One of the attractions of being a writer is that you're never a specialist. Your field is entirely open; your field is the entire human condition. #Quote by Graham Swift
Becoming quotes by Melinda Gebbie
#113. I think, honestly, the film industry is eating up comics characters at such a fast pace, and spewing them out as so much unspeakable, stench-y, crap. I mean, I think people are going to get pretty sick of the comics product of superhero, per se. Super-heroism seems to be so visceral for these times. Nobody needs a big clunky guy to throw cars about. You know, we've got drunks in town here that can do that. We don't need that kind of superhero. What we need is a super-sage. We need a genuine group of wise people. We need to become wise. That's the job of tomorrow; becoming wise, and integrated, and understanding. #Quote by Melinda Gebbie
Becoming quotes by Sibel Edmonds
#114. You get to a point where it gets very complex, where you have money laundering activities, drug related activities, and terrorist support activities converging at certain points and becoming one. #Quote by Sibel Edmonds
Becoming quotes by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
#115. The challenge of recovery is to reestablish ownership of your body and your mind - of your self. This means feeling free to know what you know and to feel what you feel without becoming overwhelmed, enraged, ashamed, or collapsed. For most people this involves (1) finding a way to become calm and focused, (2) learning to maintain that calm in response to images, thoughts, sounds, or physical sensations that remind you of the past, (3) finding a way to be fully alive in the present and engaged with the people around you, (4) not having to keep secrets from yourself, including secrets about the ways that you have managed to survive. #Quote by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk

Becoming quotes by Tucker Elliot
#120. Free agency changed the baseball landscape in many ways. It created more opportunities for players, but it also meant increasingly fewer players would spend an entire career playing for one franchise - and that's especially true for players capable of becoming "legends," the ones in such demand on the free agent market. #Quote by Tucker Elliot
Becoming quotes by Verghese Kurien
#121. It made the sheer incompetence of my colleagues at the research creamery in Anand even more intolerable to me. I could see that they had no interest in doing anything, not even the most elementary of jobs. They employed twenty people to run two small roller-dryers when in any other country twenty such roller-dryers were run by one man. I was the new dairy engineer to the Government of India Research Creamery and I realised very soon that I had no work at all. My frustration at this deadening job began rising and I started to write to the Ministry of Agriculture in Delhi every month, submitting my resignation, saying that I was drawing a salary of Rs 350 for doing no work and instead of wasting government money I should be allowed to go. After some eight months of this they must have felt that I was becoming a nuisance and they finally wrote back accepting my resignation. #Quote by Verghese Kurien
Becoming quotes by Christine Kane
#122. Living Empty means we release the things that are no longer in alignment with who we are becoming. The release itself tells us who that is. The emptiness shows us the way. #Quote by Christine Kane
Becoming quotes by Michel Foucault
#123. True love is first, love which does not conceal, and it does not conceal in two senses. First, it does not conceal because it has nothing to hide. It has nothing shameful which has to be hidden. It does not shun the light. It is willing, and is such that it is always willing to show itself in front of witnesses. It is also a love which does not conceal its aims. True love does not hide the true objective that it seeks to obtain from the one it loves. it is without subterfuge and does not employ roundabout means with its partner. It does not keep itself out of sight of witnesses, or of its partner. True love is love without disguise. Second, true love is an unalloyed love, that is to say, without mixture of pleasure and displeasure. It is also a love in which sensual pleasure and the friendship of souls do not intermingle. To that extend it is therefore a pure love because unalloyed. Third, true love (alethes eros) is love which is in line with what is right, what is correct. It is a direct (euthus) love. It has nothing contrary to the rule or custom. And finally, true love is love which is never subject to change or becoming. It is an incorruptible love which remains always the same. #Quote by Michel Foucault
Becoming quotes by Bushra Rehman
#124. Women's studies classes do not have to be a struggle for power between white women and women of color, yet that is often what they are because of white women's racism. White women must understand that the anger of women of color express in and outside of the classroom towards them is not an issue of "hurt feelings" or "misunderstandings". to reduce our experience of that racism to "misunderstandings" is both racist and reductionist. It is akin to men telling women that we are overreacting to their sexism.

The anger of women of color is a rational, response to our invisibility. It is a rational response to a racist, sexist, capitalist structure. It is not constructive for white women to tell us that our anger is making it hard for them to relate to us, that our anger makes them feel uncomfortable, that we are not willing to find common alliances with them. This is a classic example of white women's racism. They fail to realize that in telling us there is no place for our rage, they are becoming a part of what is colonizing us---the denial of our reality. They have to accept the fact that they don't understand our experiences and have an opportunity to learn something, maybe even about themselves as opposed to wanting to shut us up. Only then can any true understanding result among us. #Quote by Bushra Rehman
Becoming quotes by Ann Greyson
#125. She'd seen death plenty of times before. There's no need to fret. It's no big deal to her. Maybe she was becoming desensitized to it. #Quote by Ann Greyson
Becoming quotes by Kim Gordon
#126. I am basically a shy person, so performing sometimes helps me focus - having all those people concentrate their attention on you. I don't see it so much as becoming another person onstage; it's more exploring a different side of your personality. #Quote by Kim Gordon
Becoming quotes by Paul Davies
#127. No attempt to explain the world, either scientifically or theologically, can be considered successful until it accounts for the paradoxical conjunction of the temporal and the atemporal, of being and becoming. And no subject conforms this paradoical conjuction more starkly than the origin of the universe. #Quote by Paul Davies
Becoming quotes by Suzanne Farrell
#128. That the work involved, the willingness to take chances, the commitment, the opportunity to get on stage and make people happy, was more important than becoming famous, or even what I was dancing. #Quote by Suzanne Farrell
Becoming quotes by James E. Faust
#129. Just as order gave life and beauty to the earth when it was dark and void, so it does to us. Obedience helps us develop the full potential Heavenly Father desires for us in becoming celestial beings worthy some day to live in His presence. #Quote by James E. Faust
Becoming quotes by Barbara Marx Hubbard
#130. By understanding evolution as the expression of universal intelligence, now becoming conscious of itself within us, and as us, we overcome the dichotomy between current evolutionists who see no design in evolution, and creationists who often propose and anthropomorphic God as creator. #Quote by Barbara Marx Hubbard
Becoming quotes by Travis Fimmel
#131. I went to university for a year, and I'm not one for schooling and have no enjoyment sitting in a classroom all day and ended up going to live in England for two years, just to travel. I worked in a bar in a hotel for a couple of years and had no intention of becoming an actor. That's where I met my agent. #Quote by Travis Fimmel

#133. Besides, Mrs. Quesnt, did it never occur to you that we are not changing at all-that rather, we are simply becoming more ourselves? #Quote by Galen Beckett
Becoming quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#134. THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION OPENED up new ways to convert energy and to produce goods, largely liberating humankind from its dependence on the surrounding ecosystem. Humans cut down forests, drained swamps, dammed rivers, flooded plains, laid down hundreds of thousands of miles of railroad tracks, and built skyscraping metropolises. As the world was moulded to fit the needs of Homo sapiens, habitats were destroyed and species went extinct. Our once green and blue planet is becoming a concrete and plastic shopping centre. #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Becoming quotes by Cher
#135. The truth is that in my job, becoming old and becoming extinct are one and the same thing. #Quote by Cher
Becoming quotes by Peter McWilliams
#136. Prison is a crash course in the darker side of life. Few survive it without becoming a different person: more cynical, jaded, fearful, angry. Its hard to trust again, hard to believe, easy to hate a system that destroyed your life behind the pompous pretense of saving you from yourself, for your own good. #Quote by Peter McWilliams
Becoming quotes by Marianne Williamson
#137. The reason so many of us are obsessed with becoming stars is because we are not yet starring in our own lives. The cosmic spotlight isn't pointed at you, it radiates from within you, #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Becoming quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#138. That same spirit which makes us love the praise of men makes us dread the threats of men. You cannot be pleased with the adulation of mankind without becoming fearful of tour censure. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Becoming quotes by Gerhard Tersteegen
#139. Let none, however difficult the circumstances, consider himself as debarred from the way of holiness. Have we but God and the cross of Christ, we have the means for becoming altogether holy in our walk and conversation. What dungeon is there that can shut us out from this? Only let us use the present location and means faithfully and truly, taking them from God's hand, and we shall find him able to free us from all that is really a hindrance. Let us each one desire to be a saint in his own place and calling, instead of building 'castles in the air' of future holiness. #Quote by Gerhard Tersteegen
Becoming quotes by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
#140. Only through freely chosen discipline can life be enjoyed, and still kept within the bounds of reason. If a person learns to control his instinctual desires, not because he has to, but because he wants to, he can enjoy himself without becoming addicted. A #Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Becoming quotes by Robert Charles Wilson
#141. It's partly the Southernization of America, in that the Southern working-class version of redneck is becoming the national version, and it's good-natured, it has humor and, in some ways, it's a performance. #Quote by Robert Charles Wilson
Becoming quotes by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
#142. ...The very fact of our becoming aware of this profound ordering of things will enable human collectivization to pass beyond the enforced phase, where it now is, into the free phase: that in which (men having at last understood that they are inseparably joined elements of a converging Whole, and having learnt in consequence to love the preordained forces that unite them) a natural union of affinity and sympathy will supersede the forces of compulsion. #Quote by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
Becoming quotes by Bryant Gumbel
#143. Largely as a result of the policies and priorities of the Reagan administration, more people are becoming poor and staying poor in this country than at any time since World War II. #Quote by Bryant Gumbel
Becoming quotes by Philippa Gregory
#144. No, you look like the beauty you are, and you know it. You have that gift, which our mother had, of growing older and becoming more lovely. Your features have changed from being merely those of a pretty girl to being those of a beautiful woman with a face like a carving. When you are laughing and dancing with Edward, you could pass for twenty, but when you are still and thoughtful, you are as lovely as the statues they are carving in Italy. No wonder women loathe you. #Quote by Philippa Gregory
Becoming quotes by Matt Taibbi
#145. The new America, instead, is fast becoming a vast ghetto in which all of us, conservatives and progressives, are being bled dry by a relatively tiny oligarchy of extremely clever financial criminals and their castrato henchmen in government, whose job is to be good actors on TV and put on a good show. #Quote by Matt Taibbi
Becoming quotes by Owen Wilson
#146. James L.Brooks is just a very original person. So that was definitely the luckiest, most important thing that happened to me [meeting him]. Then I guess also meeting Ben Stiller. He cast me in the only thing I think I ever auditioned for and got: Cable Guy [1996]. And that led to us becoming friends. #Quote by Owen Wilson
Becoming quotes by Bhavya Kaushik
#147. I believe that sometimes, the moment you say goodbye could be as painful as a lifetime worth of pain that you can experience while living with the memories of your loved ones. I couldn't stop myself from hallucinating about all those things that could have happened, while you were walking away from me today. I stopped walking and turned my head, expecting for you to do the same. I stayed there, motionless, and waited – for you to turn once, to smile, or wave. But you didn't. You just continued walking away from me, while I stayed there watching your silhouette becoming smaller, and smaller with time, until it disappeared completely. There was nothing else to wait.
"What happened?" she asked me when I turned my head again towards the platform.
"She let me go, finally," was all I could say. #Quote by Bhavya Kaushik
Becoming quotes by H.G. Wells
#148. These politicians impressed him as being the most shortsighted and sceptical men he had ever met. They lived in a little world that was bounded on the one side by "office" and on the other by the constituencies, and they seemed unable to imagine that it was not an eternal world. One tall man, he observed, in the year of grace 1941 was wearing a long frock-coat and a peculiar half-stiff collar reminiscent of that great parliamentary hand, Mr. Gladstone. They talked with one another about divisions; the government majority had dropped to twenty; and they talked about a scene in the House. The P.M.'s manners were becoming intolerable. Then with an air of relaxation they turned to Rud. The possibility of altering opinions in the constituencies seemed a very theoretical one to them. No doubt there were these waves of opinion in the country, and an intelligent parliamentary politician observed them and dodged about among them, but it was quite outside their technique to consider how the pressures of opinion could accumulate and be directed. #Quote by H.G. Wells
Becoming quotes by Byron Katie
#149. So, how do you get back to heaven?
To begin with, just notice the thoughts that take you away from it.
You don't have to believe everything your thoughts tell you.
Just become familiar with the particular thoughts you use
to deprive yourself of happiness.
It may seem strange at first to get to know yourself in this way,
but becoming familiar with your stressful thoughts
will show you the way home to everything you need. #Quote by Byron Katie
Becoming quotes by Charles Duhigg
#150. Typically, people who exercise, start eating better and becoming more productive at work. They smoke less and show more patience with colleagues and family. They use their credit cards less frequently and say they feel less stressed. Exercise is a keystone habit that triggers widespread change. #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Becoming quotes by Edmund Hillary
#151. Becoming a 'Sir' is slightly uncomfortable at first, although it is a considerable honor. It is amazing how quickly you become accustomed to it. #Quote by Edmund Hillary
Becoming quotes by Homer Hickam
#152. Becoming a writer can kind of spoil your reading because you kind of read on tracks. You're reading as someone who wants to enjoy the book but also, as a writer, noticing the techniques that the writer uses and especially the ones that make you want to turn the page to see what happened. #Quote by Homer Hickam
Becoming quotes by Stephen Braxton Thompson
#153. There are mornings on this road trip as the early light gathers itself, something quite unexpected happens. My camera pushes me aside and takes on a life of it's own, conspiring with nature and becoming a veritable paintbrush. I'd like to take credit for the end result, but I know it would be a lie. #Quote by Stephen Braxton Thompson

Becoming quotes by Dave Buschi
#156. Johnny Two-cakes. As a name it didn't quite fit him, but for some reason that's what he was called. Man was sour and dour. All business; doom and gloom to the extent it was actually funny. World was coming to an end. US was one tick away from becoming a third-world country's bitch. Everything was a crisis - including the fact someone had stolen his tuna sandwich. #Quote by Dave Buschi
Becoming quotes by Hiram Rhodes Revels

Becoming quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#158. Most people's lives are run by desire and fear. Desire is the need to add something to yourself in order to be yourself more fully. All fear is the fear of losing something and thereby becoming diminished and being less. These two movements obscure the fact that Being cannot be given or taken away. Being in its fullness is already within you, Now. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Becoming quotes by Michael Spence
#159. My father once said about being a parent that it is the only thing you do that requires a very long period of learning, and at about the time that you are becoming competent, you don't need the skills anymore. Notwithstanding this modest assessment of their parenting skills, they were wonderful parents. #Quote by Michael Spence
Becoming quotes by Terry Pratchett
#160. It would be a very accurate historian who could pinpoint the precise day when the Japanese changed from being fiendish automatons who copied everything from the West, to becoming skilled and cunning engineers who would leave the West standing. But the Wasabi had been designed on that one confused day, and combined the traditional bad points of most Western cars with a host of innovative disasters the avoidance of which had made firms like Honda and Toyota what they were today. Newt #Quote by Terry Pratchett

Becoming quotes by Pedro Calderon De La Barca
#163. For, as on the coloured canvas
Subtle pencils softly blend
Dark and light in such proportions
That the dim perspectives end-
Now perhaps like famous cities,
Now like caves or misty capes,
For remoteness ever formeth
Monstrous or unreal shapes...
So it was, while I alone,
Saw their bulk and vast proportions
But their form remained unknown.
First they seemed to us uplifting
High in heaven their pointed towers,
Clouds that to the sea descended,
To conceive in sapphire showers
What they would bring forth in crystal.
And this fancy seemed more true,
As from their untold abundance
They, methought, could drink the blue
Drop by drop. Again sea monsters
Seemed to us the wandering droves,
Which, to from the train of Neptune,
Issued from their green alcoves.
For the sails, when lightly shaken,
Fanned by zephyrs as by slaves,
Seemed to us like outspread pinions
Fluttering o'er the darkened waves;
Then the mass, approaching nearer,
Seemed a mighty Babylon,
With its hanging gardens pictures
By the streamers fluttering down.
But at last our certain vision
Undeceived, becoming true,
Showed it was a great armada
For I saw the prows cut through
Foam.... #Quote by Pedro Calderon De La Barca
Becoming quotes by Bruce Chatwin
#164. Gradually the idea for a book began to take shape. It was to be a wildly ambitious and intolerant work, a kind of 'Anatomy of Restlessness' that would enlarge on Pascal's dictum about the man sitting quietly in a room. The argument, roughly, was as follows: that in becoming human, man had acquired, together with his straight legs and striding walk, a migratory 'drive' or instinct to walk long distances through the seasons; that this 'drive' was inseparable from his central nervous system; and, that, when warped in conditions of settlement, it found outlets in violence, greed, status-seeking or a mania for the new. This would explain why mobile societies such as the gypsies were egalitarian, thing-free and resistant to change; also why, to re-establish the harmony of the First State, all the great teachers - Buddha, Lao-tse, St Francis - had set the perpetual pilgrimage at the heart of their message and told their disciples, literally, to follow The Way. #Quote by Bruce Chatwin
Becoming quotes by Lev Grossman
#165. He had a goatee that was maybe growing into something that was more than a goatee, which made him look like an angry barista at an indie coffee shop whose dreams of becoming a successful screenwriter were dwindling by the hour. #Quote by Lev Grossman
Becoming quotes by Edward Hirsch
#166. I think it shapes it in very deep ways that you don't entirely understand. Rainer Maria Rilke said there are two inexhaustible sources for poetry. One is dreams, and the other is childhood. I think childhood is an inexhaustible source of your becoming who you will be and certain deep feelings are set inside of you. #Quote by Edward Hirsch
Becoming quotes by James Krenov
#167. Fine things in wood are important, not only aesthetically, as oddities or rarities, but because we are becoming aware of the fact that much of our life is spent buying and discarding, and buying again, things that are not good. Some of us long to have at least something, somewhere, which will give us harmony and a sense of durability - I won't say permanence, but durability - things that, through the years, become more and more beautiful, things we can leave to our children. #Quote by James Krenov
Becoming quotes by Hillary Rodham Clinton
#168. Had campaigned hard to the very end, but Barack had won and now it was time to support him. The causes and people I had campaigned for, the Americans who had lost jobs and health care, who couldn't afford gas or groceries or college, who had felt invisible to their government for the previous seven years, now depended on his becoming the forty-fourth President of the United States. #Quote by Hillary Rodham Clinton
Becoming quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#169. Everything is absurd.1 man spends his life earning money which he then saves even though he has no children 2 leave it 2. another puts all his efforts into becoming famous so that he'll b remembered once dead, yet he doesn't believe in a survival of the soul that would give him knowledge of that fame. yet another wears himself out looking 4 things he doesn't even like. #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Becoming quotes by Andrew Cohen
#170. You are the only one who can do this. That's the ultimately challenging and profoundly liberating truth you discover in Evolutionary Enlightenment. Any individual who is committed to this path has to know, at the deepest level, that he or she is the only one who could possibly do this. And that is because there is no other. You have discovered that fact, directly, for yourself. From the absolute or nondual perspective that emerges in spiritual revelation, there is only ONE. There literally is no other; there is only One without a second. To truly understand conscious evolution, you must grapple with the profound implications of that fact. I believe we can only consciously evolve to the degree that we have realized at the deepest level of our being that we are that One without a second.

In an evolutionary context, facing into the truth of nonduality - that the many is the One and that the One is ultimately who we always are - forces a confrontation with any relationship to the life process that is less than whole, complete, and fully committed. To consciously evolve is to surrender unconditionally to the truth that there is no other and at the same time to accept responsibility for what that means in an evolving universe - a cosmos that is slowly but surely becoming aware of itself through you and me. That One without a second is simultaneously awakening to itself as it develops, as it evolves, and it is that One, as you and me, alone, that can now begin to take res #Quote by Andrew Cohen

what joy, then, would you have in it? #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Becoming quotes by Ben Carson
#172. Disagreement is part of being a person who has choices. One of those choices is to respect others and engage in intelligent conversation about differences of opinion without becoming enemies, eventually allowing us to move forward to compromise. #Quote by Ben Carson
Becoming quotes by Susan Glaspell
#173. Two people do not really live together until their books become one library. You have known just how to classify your own - books you have had, some of them since you were eleven years old. Strange now to have them adapting themselves to the books of some one else - these two life-histories becoming one, two pasts uniting. #Quote by Susan Glaspell

Becoming quotes by Frantz Fanon
#175. In order to assimilate the culture of the oppressor and venture into his fold, the colonized subject has to pawn some of his own intellectual possessions. For instance, one of the things he has had to assimilate is the way the colonialist bourgeoisie thinks. This is apparent in the colonized intellectual's inaptitude to engage in dialogue. For he is unable to make himself inessential when confronted with a purpose or idea. On the other hand, when he operates among the people he is constantly awestruck. He is literally disarmed by their good faith and integrity. He is then constantly at risk of becoming a demagogue. He turns into a kind of mimic man who nods his assent to every word by the people, transformed by him into an arbiter of truth. But the fellah, the unemployed and the starving do not lay claim to truth. They do not say they represent the truth because they are the truth in their very being.

During this period the intellectual behaves objectively like a vulgar opportunist. His maneuvering, in fact, is still at work. The people would never think of rejecting him or cutting the ground from under his feet. What the people want is for everything to be pooled together. The colonized intellectual's insertion into this human tide will find itself on hold because of his curious obsession with detail. It is not that the people are opposed to analysis. They appreciate clarification, understand the reasoning behind an argument, and like to see where they are going. #Quote by Frantz Fanon
Becoming quotes by Frederick The Great
#176. The cruel man is of misanthropic temperament, and is a man of moods, oscillating from quiet brooding to sudden explosions. If a man like this does not fight this unhappy provision of his soul during his youth, under no circumstances could he a void becoming furious - and foolish. There are those who would leave it up to God, but to ensure justice on the earth, and not fob it off to the Divinity, it is mandatory that people know both virtue and its benefits, since the virtues lead to unity among them, not the war of all against all. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary to conserve them, and show that crime can only return misfortunes and destruction, including of the criminal himself. Who is the last victim of his crimes. #Quote by Frederick The Great

Becoming quotes by Agatha Christie
#178. You do not comprehend. It is not the victim who concerns me so much. It is the effect on the character of the slayer."
"What about war?"

He has usurped the functions of le bon Dieu. #Quote by Agatha Christie

Becoming quotes by Will Self
#185. I like texting as much as the next kidult - and embrace it as yet more evidence, along with email, that we live now in the post-aural age, when an unsolicited phone call is, thankfully, becoming more and more understood to be an unspeakable social solecism, tantamount to an impertinent invasion of privacy. #Quote by Will Self
Becoming quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#186. I'm simply interested in what is going to happen next. I don't think I can control my life or my writing. Every other writer I know feels he is steering himself, and I don't have that feeling. I don't have that sort of control. I'm simply becoming. I'm startled that I became a writer. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Becoming quotes by Christopher McDougall
#187. We're all Running People, as the Tarahumara have always known. But the American approach
ugh. Rotten at its core. It was too artificial and grabby, Vigil believed, too much about getting stuff and getting it now: medals, Nike deals, a cute butt. It wasn't art; it was business, a hard-nosed quid pro quo. No wonder so many people hated running; if you thought it was only a means to an end
an investment in becoming faster, skinnier, richer
then why stick with it if you weren't getting enough quo for your quid? #Quote by Christopher McDougall
Becoming quotes by Jay Kristoff
#188. And that's the riddle, little brother. How do you kill a monster without becoming one yourself? #Quote by Jay Kristoff
Becoming quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#189. All people want to belong to some sort of hierarchy. Allow me to explain. The rich want to be the richest; the poor want to be the smartest; those who are both rich and smart want to be the better persons; the better persons want to go to heaven; those who are in heaven will look down upon those who are in hell... there is always some kind of hierarchy desired by everyone; even by those who claim the opposite of this. So how do you find true divinity? Divinity is found in those who reach down low; because it is those who are above who must reach down low, while it is those who are below who must constantly reach for what is above! And this is divinity. What is divine, is what will have a curiosity in what is below. There is no fear of becoming "tainted"; because what is lesser can never really taint what is greater. it is what is greater that is able to transform what is lesser. The alchemist must first find the mud, pick it up, before she is able to transform it into diamond. She must first reach into the swamp, in order to pull out roses. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Becoming quotes by A.L.  Wilson
#190. Do not misunderstand. It is not the 'forever' from which I take issue in this instance. There is nothing in this world that brings me greater joy than being with ju. However, the idea of becoming a vampire it…it gives me pause and always has. Cyrus, I'm scared. #Quote by A.L. Wilson
Becoming quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#191. Colonial American and Australian schoolchildren once memorized poems about British skylarks while the blue jays or cockatoos (according to continent) squawked outside, utterly ignored. The dominant culture has a way of becoming more real than the stuff at hand. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Becoming quotes by Lake Bell
#192. Something that has always attracted me to even taking on the occupation of actor is the idea that I could be lucky enough to portray different characterizations from different places in the world, whether it's speaking another language or taking on a dialect and building a history from where they were born. I was very attracted to that concept, in becoming an actor. #Quote by Lake Bell
Becoming quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#193. The Mass is not only about God becoming man, it is about Man becoming more himself. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
Becoming quotes by Jeffrey Bell
#194. One of the things that Dostoevsky talks about is that no character is too high to fall and no character is too low to be redeemed. 'Crime and Punishment' began with a person going out and consciously becoming a cold-blooded murderer, and it took 800 pages and an epilogue before the person finally asked for forgiveness. #Quote by Jeffrey Bell
Becoming quotes by Mike DeWine
#195. I have seen the cycle of a non-violent, mentally ill offender who is arrested repeatedly and put into the system repeatedly-never being treated for his illness and, as a result, becoming more and more ill. #Quote by Mike DeWine
Becoming quotes by Craig Mundie
#196. Data are becoming the new raw material of business. #Quote by Craig Mundie
Becoming quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#197. In this day of wonders no one will say that a thing or an idea is worthless because it is new. To say it is impossible because it is difficult is again not in consonance with the spirit of the age. Things undreamt of are daily being seen, the impossible is ever becoming possible. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi

#198. Rock music is becoming stale. Let's put the fun back. #Quote by Ray Toro
Becoming quotes by Jonah Hill
#199. Yeah I grew up in the public eye. I became a man in the public eye, which is kind of a bizarre thing to come to terms with. Now I'm in my late 20s and I was in my early 20s when I became recognizable. But I think 'Moneyball' represents a very strong shift in my career and becoming an adult and a man. #Quote by Jonah Hill
Becoming quotes by Joanna Weaver
#200. I'm trying to learn that in my Christian walk as well. If I'll move to the beat of the Spirit and relinquish control of my life to Him, I'll be able to dance to the music God has playing in His head rather than movin' and agroovin' to the catchy little tunes I've got going in my own. For when I allow the Lord to provide the accompaniment to my life, I discover a richly layered soundtrack more beautiful than anything I could compose myself. But following God's beat, dancing to His rhythm, trusting in His sovereignty - all that can be hard for a rhythmically challenged, control-loving person like me. Because when it comes right down to it, I'm a headstrong little girl who wants her own way in pretty much every area of life. Fortunately, I have a Father who loves me in spite of that. But while He loves me as I am, He also loves me too much to leave me that way. So He insists I follow His lead in order to "grow up" in my salvation (1 Peter 2:2). Becoming more like Jesus and less like me. #Quote by Joanna Weaver
