Being Better quotes by Portia De Rossi
#5. I contemplate the idea of being better and it brings to mind my favorite quote from Wayne Dyer, our friend and the man who is about to marry me to the woman of my dreams. "True nobility isn't about being better than anyone else; it's about being better than you used to be." "Yes, Ma. I am better." I am better than I used to be. #Quote by Portia De Rossi
Being Better quotes by Mekael Shane
#6. In order for mankind to be kinder, more love filled and more human with each other, we all have to be more intentional about being better, more transcendent in our humanness.

Any human evil enough to enslave, colonize, unjustly criminalize, imperialize, slaughter or emotionally and physically brutalize other people, is not human.

You can't be both inhuman and human at the same time. The two can't occupy the same human. The human animal has thus far, proven itself to be one of the worst species to have ever traversed this planet. No other species has ever shown such barbarity and anti-sentience to other sentient beings, like the human specie has. In order for our specie to further evolve. In order for our specie to work repair the damage we've done to this beautiful place we call and to the sentient family, our humanity and inhumanness, can longer walk hand in hand. #Quote by Mekael Shane
Being Better quotes by Deepak Chopra
#7. You feel resentful to be on the low side of the comparison, yet being on the high side brings no peace either, because there's no such thing as being better all the time. So this is a great game to give up---you win by walking away. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Being Better quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#8. She laughs an honest laugh ... one that puts the fakes on edge and makes them dream of being better. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Being Better quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#9. I am not winning any arguments because I know how to hurt someone. How does that prove that you're right? How does being stronger or more vicious prove anything, except that all this talk about honor is stupid? Where's the honor in being better at hurting somebody? Telling me I have to do this is insulting, as if I can't win any other way. As if I can't win in a better way. #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
Being Better quotes by Vijay Prashad
#10. We are social beings who make communities with an urgency, and it is a stern charge to make us take refuge in the lonely world of oneself ... Racism attempts to occlude our cosmopolitanism (of the songs in and out of our bones), and it often appropriates our mild forms of xenophobia into its own virulent project. Difference among peoples is something that we negotiate in our everyday interactions, asking questions and being better informed of our mutual realities. To transform difference into the body is an act of bad faith, a denial of our shared nakedness. #Quote by Vijay Prashad
Being Better quotes by Rick Riordan
#11. In the old legends, Arachne had gotten into trouble because of pride. She'd bragged about her tapestries being better than Athena's, which had led to Mount Olympus's first reality TV punishment program: 'So You Think You Can Weave Better Than a Goddess?' Arachne had lost in a big way. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Being Better quotes by Hillary Clinton
#12. There's a lot that the majority, a big majority of the American people want to see us do and I'm very excited about that work. I think the Democratic Party has a record of being better for the economy when we hold the White House. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Being Better quotes by Arlene Francis
#13. It is perfectly logical and proper to recognize differences between races and colors and creeds - as long as we don't classify them as being better or worse. #Quote by Arlene Francis
Being Better quotes by Grady Hendrix
#14. Kris had been alive long enough to know it was dangerous when men accused you of being better than them. #Quote by Grady Hendrix
Being Better quotes by Brian Christian
#15. The old adage tells us that "the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence," but the math tells us why: the unknown has a chance of being better, even if we actually expect it to be no different, or if it's just as likely to be worse. #Quote by Brian Christian
Being Better quotes by James Clear
#16. When you can't win by being better, you can win by being different. By combining your skills, you reduce the level of competition, which makes it easier to stand out. You can shortcut the need for a genetic advantage (or for years of practice) by rewriting the rules. A good player works hard to win the game everyone else is playing. A great player creates a new game that favors their strengths and avoids their weaknesses. #Quote by James Clear
Being Better quotes by Dan Brown
#17. And maybe that's why the only thing that keeps me going is my belief that we are capable of being better than we are ... capable of taking action to avoid a catastrophic future. #Quote by Dan Brown
Being Better quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#18. I think the new spirituality will be a spirituality that's not based on a particular dogma. And that steps away from the old spiritual paradigm that we have created on this planet, which comes from a thought that there is such a thing as being better. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Being Better quotes by Carol S. Dweck
#19. Success is about being your best self, not about being better than others; failure is an opportunity, not a condemnation; effort is the key to success. #Quote by Carol S. Dweck
Being Better quotes by Lafcadio Hearn
#20. As a result, the highly civilized man can endure incomparably more than the savage, whether of moral or physical strain. Being better able to control himself under all circumstances, he has a great advantage over the savage. #Quote by Lafcadio Hearn
Being Better quotes by Shonda Rhimes
#21. You have to be okay with being better than everyone else. #Quote by Shonda Rhimes
Being Better quotes by Karl Ove Knausgaard
#22. What a stupid, fucking, idiotic country this was. All the young women drank water in such vast quantities that it was coming out of their ears, they thought it was "beneficial" and "healthy," but all it did was send the numbers of incontinent young people soaring. Children ate whole wheat pasta and whole wheat bread and all sorts of weird coarse-grained rice that their stomachs could not digest properly, but it didn't matter because it was "beneficial," it was "healthy," it was "wholesome." Oh, they were confusing food with the mind, they thought they could eat their way to being better human beings without understanding that food is one thing and the notions food evokes another. And if you said that, you were either a reactionary or just a Norwegian, in other words ten years behind the times. #Quote by Karl Ove Knausgaard
Being Better quotes by Michael Porter
#23. Strategy is about setting yourself apart from the competition. It's not a matter of being better at what you do - it's a matter of being different at what you do. #Quote by Michael Porter
Being Better quotes by John Scalzi
#24. Making people change because you can't deal with who they are isn't how it's supposed to be done. What needs to be done is for people to pull their heads out of their asses. You say 'cure.' I hear 'you're not human enough. #Quote by John Scalzi
Being Better quotes by Catherine Cruzan
#25. Trust your instincts. Do not confuse ego with instinct. Ego has to be set aside if you want to improve, and we should always want to improve. There is no glass ceiling on being better. #Quote by Catherine Cruzan
Being Better quotes by Frank Schaeffer
#26. America still sees itself as essential and as destiny's instrument. And each splinter group within our culture - left, right, conservative, liberal, religious, secular - sees itself as morally, even "theologically," superior to its rivals. It is not just about politics. It is about being better than one's evil opponent. We don't just disagree, we demonize the "other." And we don't compromise. #Quote by Frank Schaeffer
Being Better quotes by David Hoffmeister
#27. The Holy Spirit has to convince us that reality is better than illusions and that eternity is better than linear time. It is actually beyond one being better than the other; it is a case of there being no comparison. One is real and one is not. If we are sincerely interested in experiencing True Happiness, if we really want to be in a miraculous state of mind, all it takes is the willingness to start to see the miracle offers us everything. #Quote by David Hoffmeister
Being Better quotes by J.R. Rim
#28. It is less about becoming a better person, and more of being better, as a person. #Quote by J.R. Rim
Being Better quotes by Tucker Elliot
#29. I spent half my childhood trying to be like my dad. True for most boys, I think. It turns with adolescence. The last thing I wanted was to be like my dad. It took becoming a man to realize how lucky I'd been. It took a few hard knocks in life to make me realize the only thing my dad had ever wanted or worked for was to give me a chance at being better than him. #Quote by Tucker Elliot
Being Better quotes by Nathaniel Branden
#30. Persons of high self-esteem are not driven to make themselves superior to others; they do not seek to prove their value by measuring themselves against a comparative standard. Their joy is being who they are, not in being better than someone else. #Quote by Nathaniel Branden
Being Better quotes by David Brooks
#31. In my view, success is earned externally by being better than other people. But character, that sort of unfakeable goodness, is earned by being better than you used to be. And it's about self-confrontation. #Quote by David Brooks
Being Better quotes by Ben Harper
#32. My band is the best band in the world, period. So, I insist on every song being better then it is on the record. So by the end of the tour, we have to be playing the song better then how it's recorded. #Quote by Ben Harper
Being Better quotes by Fredrik Backman
#33. David drives back to Björnstad. Sits in the car and cries in anger. He is ashamed. He is disgusted. With himself. For an entire hockey life he has trained a boy, loved him like a son, been loved back as a father. There is no player as loyal as Benji. No bigger heart than his. How many times has David hugged number sixteen after a game and told him that? "You are the bravest bastard I know, Benji." The bravest bastard I know. " And after all those hours in locker rooms, all those nights in the bus, all the conversations and blood, sweat and tears, the boy didn't dare tell his coach his greatest secret. It's a betrayal, David knows it's a terrible betrayal. There is no other way to explain how much a grown man must have failed for such a warrior of a boy to make him think his coach would be less proud of him if he was gay. David hates himself for not being better than his father. For that is a son's job. #Quote by Fredrik Backman
Being Better quotes by Molly Corbett Broad
#34. Crossing the Finish Line is a must-read for anyone concerned with the disturbing fact that Americans can no longer count on each generation being better educated than the last. Focusing on public institutions that educate more than three-fourths of U.S. students, Bowen, Chingos, and McPherson provide compelling arguments that institutions and policymakers must find new ways to overcome deeply entrenched patterns if our country is to regain its position as the most educated. #Quote by Molly Corbett Broad
Being Better quotes by Will Smith
#35. There's no easy way around it, no matter how talented you are ... your talent is going to fail you if you're not skilled. If you don't study, if you don't work really hard and dedicate yourself to being better every single day, you 'll never be able to communicate with people your artistry the way that you want! #Quote by Will Smith
Being Better quotes by Celso Cukierkorn
#36. Some of us aim at being good
I prefer to aim at being better #Quote by Celso Cukierkorn
Being Better quotes by Randy Anderson
#37. Excellence isn't as much about being the best as it is about being the best you can be, and being better than you were before. #Quote by Randy Anderson
Being Better quotes by Gary Comer
#38. Worry about being better; bigger will take care of itself #Quote by Gary Comer
Being Better quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#39. We can deny everything, except that we have the possibility of being better. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Being Better quotes by Helen Fielding
#40. I explained my whole theory about parenting being better if it was like a large Italian family having dinner under a tree while children play. Rebecca poured more wine and explained her theory of child-rearing, which is that you should behave as badly as possible so that the children will rebel against you and turn out like Saffron in Absolutely Fabulous. #Quote by Helen Fielding
Being Better quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#41. Half a loaf being better than none, I #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Being Better quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#42. My constant focus is on being better. Should I be doing multimedia video production? Or seminars on the Internet? How can I do what I'm already doing in a more forceful way? #Quote by Oprah Winfrey
Being Better quotes by Gayle Forman
#43. When you're on the road, there is always the promise of the next stop being better than last #Quote by Gayle Forman
Being Better quotes by Edward Herbert, 1st Baron Herbert Of Cherbury
#44. In oratory affectation must be avoided; it being better for a man by a native and clear eloquence to express himself than by those words which may smell either of the lamp or inkhorn. #Quote by Edward Herbert, 1st Baron Herbert Of Cherbury
Being Better quotes by Suzanne F. Stevens
#45. Being better or different from competitors is not enough anymore. Being a mission-focused organization will attract, engage, and retain well-aligned customers, colleagues, and collaborators. #Quote by Suzanne F. Stevens
Being Better quotes by Aristotle.
#46. If the consequences are the same it is always better to assume the more limited antecedent, since in things of nature the limited, as being better, is sure to be found, wherever possible, rather than the unlimited. #Quote by Aristotle.
Being Better quotes by Bill Kristol
#47. The average GOP presidential vote in these last five elections was 44.5 percent. In the last three, it was 48.1 percent. Give Romney an extra point for voter disillusionment with Obama, and a half-point for being better financed than his predecessors. It still strikes me as a path to narrow defeat. #Quote by Bill Kristol
Being Better quotes by Derek Landy
#48. We don't do what we do for the glory or the fame or the credit; we do it for the quiet satisfaction of making the world a better place, saving the lives of innocents, and being better than you are. #Quote by Derek Landy
Being Better quotes by Gary Bartz
#49. I don't think my playing style has really changed over the years; it's just gotten better. I can hear the improvement in comparing older records and later records. I'm referring to soloing ability, to having a better sound, to knowing chords better, and getting rhythmically stronger. It also has to do with ideas - learning how to edit your ideas and being better able to follow ideas out to a logical conclusion. #Quote by Gary Bartz
Being Better quotes by C.S. Lewis
#50. No sooner do we believe that God loves us than there is an impulse to believe that He does so, not because He is Love, but because we are intrinsically lovable. The Pagans obeyed this impulse unabashed; a good man was "dear to the gods" because he was good. We, being better taught, resort to subterfuge. Far be it from us to think that we have virtues for which God could love us. But then, how magnificently we have repented! As Bunyan says, describing his first and illusory conversion, "I thought there was no man in England that pleased God better than I." Beaten out of this, we next offer our own humility to God's admiration. Surely He'll like that? Or if not that, our clear-sighted and humble recognition that we still lack humility. Thus, depth beneath depth and subtlety within subtelty, there remains some lingering idea of our own, our very own attractiveness. It is easy to acknowledge, but almost impossible to realize for long, that we are mirrors whose brightness, if we are bright, is wholly derived from the sun that shines upon us. Surely we must have a little--however little--native luminosity? Surely we can't be quite creatures? - The Four Loves #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Being Better quotes by Regar Asequia
#51. Sometimes good is preventing us for being better.
rbasequia.. #Quote by Regar Asequia
Being Better quotes by Kenny Smith
#52. Misfortune occurs or can occur to anyone, of any sort of character. The eudaimonic has more resources to avoid it (being in autonomous control of his appetites and assumptions) and more resources to deal with it if it occurs (being better able to put it in perspective and maintain his own evenness of self-mastery). Tragedy as a dramatic form is meant to foster the ethos of sophrosyne or moderation, "nothing to excess"; it nurtures a sense of distance from the dominant illusions and delusions that may infect even aristoi. #Quote by Kenny Smith
Being Better quotes by Fredrik Backman
#53. And after all those hours in the locker room, all those nights on the team bus, all the conversations and all the jokes and the blood, sweat, and tears, the boy didn't dare tell his coach his biggest secret.
That's betrayal. David knows it's a huge betrayal. There's no other way to explain how much a grown man must have failed as a person if such a warrior of a boy could believe that his coach would be less proud of him if he were gay.
David hates himself for not being better than his dad. That's the job of sons. #Quote by Fredrik Backman
Being Better quotes by Saint Bernard
#54. A man who prides himself on being better than his fellow-men thinks it a disgrace if he does not do something more than they do, whereby his superiority may be apparent. #Quote by Saint Bernard
Being Better quotes by Devi Irnasari
#55. Sometimes it is not about lose or win, but what you can learn from the things happened, because at the end it doesn't matter, afterall life is all about a process of being better man each day #Quote by Devi Irnasari
Being Better quotes by Letty Cottin Pogrebin
#56. When a family is free of abuse and oppression, it can be the place where we share our deepest secrets and stand the most exposed, a place where we learn to feel distinct without being better, - and sacrifice for others without losing ourselves. #Quote by Letty Cottin Pogrebin
Being Better quotes by Paul Beatty
#57. That crap about being better off under slavery is too much even for you, isn't it, Foy?'
'At least McJones cares.'
'Come on, he cares about black people like a seven-footer cares about football. He has to care because what else would he be good at. #Quote by Paul Beatty
Being Better quotes by Oliver Cromwell
#58. Those who stop being better stop being good. #Quote by Oliver Cromwell
Being Better quotes by Jose N Harris
#59. Our main problem is deciding how to spend this one and only precious life that we have been gifted...
Shall we spend it trying to look good - trying to create the illusion of being better, stronger or smarter than others, or of having power and control over people and life's circumstances?
Or shall we let go and humble ourselves - so we can truly taste life, enjoy it, share it, own it and fully appreciate it?
Its a very personal choice. Let's choose wisely! #Quote by Jose N Harris
Being Better quotes by Paulo Coelho
#60. Every warrior of light has felt afraid of going into battle.
Every warrior of light has, at some time in the past, lied or betrayed someone.
Every warrior of light has trodden a path that was not his.
Every warrior of light has suffered for the most trivial of reasons.
Every warrior of light has, at least once, believed that he was not a warrior of light.
Every warrior of light has failed in his spiritual duties.
Every warrior of light has said 'yes' when he wanted to say 'no'.
Every warrior of light has hurt someone he loved.
That is why he is a warrior of light, because he has been through all this and yet has never lost hope of being better than he is.
#Quote by Paulo Coelho
Being Better quotes by Jen Mann
#61. The thing about marriage is that it requires so much compromise. And, naturally, someone is going to come into the marriage being better at The Yield. In fact, I say a lengthy marriage requires it. Someone is always going to come in with horns down and nostrils flaring. That requires that the other person run away as quickly as possible while waving the white flag. Certainly not the red flag, because I don't want to be that poor woman who accidentally ran over her spouse sixty-five times. Someone is the bull. Someone must be the china shop. We all have important roles to play. #Quote by Jen Mann
Being Better quotes by Sam J. Miller
#62. I used to imagine Better was a place you could get to. A moment when I would look around and see that Everything Was Fine. But that's not how this works. Being better isn't a battle you fight and win. Feeling okay is a war, one that lasts your whole life, and the only way to win is to keep on fighting. #Quote by Sam J. Miller
Being Better quotes by Dru Edmund Kucherera
#63. Be so focused on being happy,improving yourself and being better than the person you were yesterday that you hardly realize whats going on with other people around you...

In short...

MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS #Quote by Dru Edmund Kucherera
Being Better quotes by Alan Alda
#64. No man or woman of the humblest sort can really be strong, gentle and good, without the world being better for it, without somebody being helped and comforted by the very existence of that goodness. #Quote by Alan Alda
Being Better quotes by Talal Abu-Ghazaleh
#65. I believe that I was lucky to have suffered.
Some people don't realize that in suffering there is great potential, because if you are deprived for any reason.
Politically, financially, socially or otherwise and if you set your mind in the right direction, you will find that the only way to survive is for you to excel, by being better so you can be treated better. #Quote by Talal Abu-Ghazaleh
Being Better quotes by Steve Young
#66. The principle is competing against yourself. It's about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before. #Quote by Steve Young
Being Better quotes by Martijn Benders
#67. If you ask me, I think Jerry Springer destroyed the public image of the USA. I mean up to early in the nineties I still imagined it like it was presented in hollywoodfilms and stuff. But then, early in the 90's they started broadcasting that freakshow in the Netherlands, and that new idea of entertainment, where you put the biggest morons you can find on screen so you can watch it and feel superior. Later on, politics also discovered the same formula. We want politicians we feel superior to. The very idea of anything being 'better' or 'higher' than us makes people extremely uncomfortable. #Quote by Martijn Benders
Being Better quotes by Christina Engela
#68. Peace with non-fundamentalists terrifies the fundamentalist because to them, being Christian doesn't mean just being 'good' - it means being 'better' than others. Being better that others means having to see them as enemies - and making war on them. The fundamentalist views not being allowed to make war on their enemies as oppression of their faith, or defeat. #Quote by Christina Engela
Being Better quotes by Maureen Doyle McQuerry
#69. I don't know who I am. But do you know who you are? Does anyone really? What makes a decent person? Does being the same as everyone else mean being better than people or does it just make it easier to look down your nose at them? #Quote by Maureen Doyle McQuerry
Being Better quotes by Frederick Buechner
#70. If we only had eyes to see and ears to hear and wits to understand, we would know that the Kingdom of God in the sense of holiness, goodness, beauty is as close as breathing and is crying out to born both within ourselves and within the world; we would know that the Kingdom of God is what we all of us hunger for above all other things even when we don't know its name or realize that it's what we're starving to death for. The Kingdom of God is where our best dreams come from and our truest prayers. We glimpse it at those moments when we find ourselves being better than we are and wiser than we know. We catch sight of it when at some moment of crisis a strength seems to come to us that is greater than our own strength. The Kingdom of God is where we belong. It is home, and whether we realize it or not, I think we are all of us homesick for it. #Quote by Frederick Buechner
Being Better quotes by Estelle
#71. My songs are always about overcoming things, whether it's breaking up with a guy or just trying to be happy. They're always about being better. #Quote by Estelle
Being Better quotes by Cassandra Clare
#72. Isabelle. Simon's mouth moved to form the shape of her name, pressing it into his pillow. He'd told himself he wasn't going to think about her, not until he was really getting somewhere in the Acedemy. Not until he was on his way to being better, being the person she wanted him to be. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Being Better quotes by Allen Iverson
#73. I'm not perfect. But I am trying every day to concentrate on being better. #Quote by Allen Iverson
Being Better quotes by Brigham Young
#74. Do you know that it is the eleventh hour of the reign of Satan on the earth? Jesus is coming to reign, and all you who fear and tremble because of your enemies, cease to fear them, and learn to fear to offend God, fear to transgress his laws, fear to do any evil to your brother, or to any being upon the earth, and do not fear Satan and his power, nor those who have only power to slay the body, for God will preserve his people #Quote by Brigham Young
Being Better quotes by Janne Teller
#75. Even if you learn something and think you're good at it, there'll always be someone who's better.
Pierre Anthon #Quote by Janne Teller
Being Better quotes by Rebecca Schaeffer
#76. I think, more than anything, people like to feel superior to others. Canadians like to feel that they're better than Americans. Americans love to feel they're better than the whole world. And when people feel superior, it makes it harder for them to see the problems just beneath the surface. They don't want to believe them, to face them, because if they did, can they really claim to be superior anymore? #Quote by Rebecca Schaeffer
Being Better quotes by Thorstein Veblen
#77. It frequently happens that an element of the standard of living which set out with being primarily wasteful, ends with becoming, in the apprehension of the consumer, a necessary of life. #Quote by Thorstein Veblen
Being Better quotes by Henri Poincare
#78. The mathematical facts worthy of being studied are those which, by their analogy with other facts, are capable of leading us to the knowledge of a physical law. #Quote by Henri Poincare
Being Better quotes by Nick Brandt
#79. Few photographers have ever considered the photography of wild animals, as distinctly opposed to the genre of Wildlife Photography, as an art form. The emphasis has generally been on capturing the drama of wild animals IN ACTION, on capturing that dramatic single moment, as opposed to simply animals in the state of being. #Quote by Nick Brandt
Being Better quotes by Liz Phair
#80. I was trying to break out of the suburbs, and when I did break out, I don't think I took my whole self with me - I think I played a role of being too cool and hip. #Quote by Liz Phair
Being Better quotes by Marty Rubin
#81. The more present one is, the fewer one's doubts and fears. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Being Better quotes by Kanye West
#82. I Am A God

[Intro: Capleton]
Blazing, mi don't want them
Mi need them
Suh mi tek har outta bugah red and put her in a tall skirt
And now she find out what life is really worth
No to X rated
Yo mi tek har outta bugah red and put her in a tall skirt
And now she find out what life is really worth
No to X rated

I am a god
I am a god
I am a god

I am a god
Hurry up with my damn massage
Hurry up with my damn ménage
Get the Porsche out the damn garage
I am a god
Even though I'm a man of god
My whole life in the hands of god
So y'all better quit playing with god

[Verse 1]
Soon as they like you make 'em unlike you
Cause kissing people ass is so unlike you
The only rapper compared to Michael
So here's a few hating-ass niggas who'll fight you
And here's a few snake-ass niggas to bite you
And I don't even wanna hear 'bout what niggas might do
Old niggas mentally still in high school
Since the tight jeans they never liked you
Pink-ass polos with a fucking backpack
But everybody know you brought real rap back
Nobody had swag, man, we the Rat Pack
Virgil Pyrex, Don C snapback
Ivan, diamond, Chi-town shining
Monop' in this bitch, get a change of climate
Hop in this bitch and get the same thing I'm in
Until the day I get struck by lightning

#Quote by Kanye West
Being Better quotes by Robert De Niro
#83. I've never been one of those actors who has touted myself as a fascinating human being. I had to decide early on whether I was to be an actor or a personality. #Quote by Robert De Niro
Being Better quotes by Amartya Sen
#84. The notion of human right builds on our shared humanity. These rights are not derived from the citizenship of any country, or the membership of any nation, but are presumed to be claims or entitlements of every human being. They differ, therefore, from constitutionally created rights guaranteed for specific people. #Quote by Amartya Sen
Being Better quotes by Dylan Callens
#85. We should have smashed through the door long ago," grunted Thor. Everyone had always thought of Thor as Lennie from Of Mice and Men: too big and too slow. The chief difference being that while Lenny accidentally hugged little animals to death, Thor had a penchant for beating the shit out of them with his war hammer, Mjolnir. #Quote by Dylan Callens
Being Better quotes by Daniel Radcliffe
#86. To the children who loved Harry Potter, I want to say your enthusiasm was the real magic. I so enjoyed being on the journey with you. And to the adults who bought the Harry Potter books and devoured them, I just want to say, those books were for children. #Quote by Daniel Radcliffe
Being Better quotes by Will Self
#87. She began to take exercise far too late, embarking on tiny cycling tours to music festivals, or flower shows, or doing the rounds of churches – there were so many spires in her uninspiring adopted home. Three kids, one episiotomy, two continents, many phobias, lots of depressions. Old fat lady's underwear. It was all a curse upon cycling, which she'd taken up for what reason? Believe it or not, not even the bulbous seventies there were still bulbous, middle-aged women such as she, who thought that the principle of cycling meant something. They cycled and they ate in health-food restaurants like Cranks or Ceres, their cussedness aimed at appeasing the Earth Goddess herself. They almost fucking overdosed on grated carrot; while sipping fucking prune juice. They invented being environmentally-conscious, with their vegetable-buying co-operatives which gave them an excuse to put gumboots on in town. #Quote by Will Self
Being Better quotes by Pia Zadora
#88. I had basically the same stigma that Bo Derek did
being created by a Svengali
which took me a long time to overcome. #Quote by Pia Zadora
Being Better quotes by Ryan Lewis
#89. Any time we have the opportunity to play in a more intimate room, there's such a huge aspect of our set just built for that. And beyond that, we just love being that close to our fans. #Quote by Ryan Lewis
Being Better quotes by Emily Bronte
#90. That made her cry, at first; and then, being repulsed continually hardened her, and she laughed if I told her to say she was sorry for her faults and beg to be forgiven. #Quote by Emily Bronte
Being Better quotes by Spike Lee
#91. '25th Hour,' like a lot of my films, takes place in New York City. I've been very fortunate to make films in the city that I live. I mean, it's great going home at night instead of being on location. #Quote by Spike Lee
Being Better quotes by Patty Schemel
#92. You don't really think that things will ever get better, but they do. People always ask me, "What would you say to gay teen youth that are suicidal, or someone who is addicted right now?," and it's hard to say with words that things will change, but they do. #Quote by Patty Schemel
Being Better quotes by R.D. Laing
#93. In describing one way of going mad, I shall try to show that there is a comprehensible transition from the sane schizoid way of being-in-the-world to a psychotic way of being-in-the-world. #Quote by R.D. Laing
Being Better quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#94. He thought of nothing, wished for nothing, but not to be left behind the peasants, and to do his work as well as possible. He heard nothing but the swish of scythes, and saw before him Tit's upright figure mowing away, the crescent-shaped curve of the cut grass, the grass and flower heads slowly and rhythmically falling before the blade of his scythe, and ahead of him the end of the row, where would come the rest.

Suddenly, in the midst of his toil, without understanding what it was or whence it came, he felt a pleasant sensation of chill on his hot, moist shoulders. He glanced at the sky in the interval for whetting the scythes. A heavy, lowering storm cloud had blown up, and big raindrops were falling. Some of the peasants went to their coats and put them on; others--just like Levin himself--merely shrugged their shoulders, enjoying the pleasant coolness of it.

Another row, and yet another row, followed--long rows and short rows, with good grass and with poor grass. Levin lost all sense of time, and could not have told whether it was late or early now. A change began to come over his work, which gave him immense satisfaction. In the midst of his toil there were moments during which he forgot what he was doing, and it came all easy to him, and at those same moments his row was almost as smooth and well cut as Tit's. But so soon as he recollected what he was doing, and began trying to do better, he was at once conscious of all the difficulty of his task, #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Being Better quotes by Philip Yancey
#95. When I write, I try to represent the ordinary person in the pew, which means that, ironically, I'm qualified to write about prayer by being unqualified! #Quote by Philip Yancey
Being Better quotes by Christina Engela
#96. The simple truth of the matter is that people who complain about a peaceful parade which lasts at best one hour in a particular place - ONCE in a whole year - do so out of hatred and intolerance. it isn't just the parade, it is seeing gay and trans people in public - and gay and trans people BEING gay and trans in public. And that is the root of the problem - they HATE gay and trans people. #Quote by Christina Engela
Being Better quotes by Diane Di Prima
#97. In the fifties ... we were so busy being cool that we didn't know how to say the word love #Quote by Diane Di Prima
Being Better quotes by Louis Ferdinand Celine
#98. Death after all is only a matter of a few hours, a few minutes, but a pension is like poverty, it lasts a whole lifetime. Rich people are drunk in a different way, they can't understand this frenzy about security. Being rich is another kind of drunkenness, the forgetful kind. That, in fact, is the whole point of getting rich: to forget. #Quote by Louis Ferdinand Celine
Being Better quotes by Anna Todd
#99. The worst part of being okay is that okay is far from happy. #Quote by Anna Todd
Being Better quotes by W. Lucas Collins
#100. "Sound, sound the clarion, fill the fife! To all the sensual world proclaim, One crowded hour of glorious life Is worth an age without a name". Do not then (concludes the Stoic) take good words in your mouth, and prate before applauding citizens of honour, duty, and so forth, while you make your private lives a mere selfish calculation of expediency. We were surely born for nobler ends than this, and none who is worthy the name of a man would subscribe to doctrines which destroy all honour and all chivalry. The heroes of old time won their immortality not by weighing pleasures and pains in the balance, but by being prodigal of their lives, doing and enduring all things for the sake of their fellow-men. #Quote by W. Lucas Collins
Being Better quotes by Warren Buffett
#101. The major asset in this category is gold, currently a huge favorite of investors who fear almost all other assets, especially paper money (of whose value, as noted, they are right to be fearful). Gold, however, has two significant shortcomings, being neither of much use nor procreative. True, gold has some industrial and decorative utility, but the demand for these purposes is both limited and incapable of soaking up new production. Meanwhile, if you own one ounce of gold for an eternity, you will still own one ounce at its end. #Quote by Warren Buffett
Being Better quotes by Neal A. Maxwell
#102. It is only by yielding to God that we can begin to realize His will for us. And if we truly trust God, why not yield to His loving omniscience? After all, He knows us and our possibilities much better than do we. #Quote by Neal A. Maxwell
Being Better quotes by Edmund White
#103. The Stonewall riots were a key moment for gay people. Throughout modern history, gays had thought of themselves as something like a mental illness or maybe a sin or a crime. Gay liberation allowed us to make the leap to being a 'minority group,' which made life much easier. #Quote by Edmund White
Being Better quotes by David Michie
#104. The main shift, you see, is from placing self at the center of our thoughts to putting others there. It is-what do you say?-a paradox that the more we can focus our thoughts on the well-being of others, the happier we become. The first one to benefit is oneself. I call this being wisely selfish. #Quote by David Michie
Being Better quotes by Mark Haddon
#105. And this means that time is a mystery, and not even a thing, and no one has ever solved the puzzle of what time is, exactly. and so, if you get lost in time it is like being lost in a desert, except that you can't see the desert because it is not a thing. And this is why I like timetables, because they make sure you don't get lost in time #Quote by Mark Haddon
Being Better quotes by Angela Of Foligno
#106. Our condition is most noble, being so beloved of the Most High God that He was willing to die for our sake- which He would not have done if man had not been a most noble creature and of great worth. #Quote by Angela Of Foligno
Being Better quotes by Robin Yount
#107. But what I'd really like to tell you is I never dreamed of being in the Hall of Fame. Standing here with all these great players was beyond any of my dreams. #Quote by Robin Yount
Being Better quotes by Zinzi Clemmons
#108. Early on I felt I had nothing to offer Dean except my body. He was a full person and I knew that I wasn't yet, that I was still growing, that he and our relationship were shunting me into being. I made myself available to him all the time, and it wasn't long before he'd used me all up, grown bored, decided he needed more. #Quote by Zinzi Clemmons
Being Better quotes by Nancy Lancaster
#109. A gentle mixture of furniture expresses life and continuity but it must be a judicious mixture that flows and mixes well. It is a bit like mixing a salade. (I am better at room than salads). #Quote by Nancy Lancaster
Being Better quotes by Lemony Snicket
#110. Because getting a cheerful balloon helps people picture getting better, and if you picture something it makes it so. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Being Better quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#111. I think that the trademark of the Devil in this world, is the awful rift between women. Women backbiting other women, women envying other women and so on and so forth. And then there is the telltale sign of God in this world, which is the intoxicating potion of joy that is concocted when a woman reaches out to another woman, when women will take an extra step, go an extra mile, or just go out of their way an inch for their fellow woman, regardless of the varying degrees of things we hold important such as beauty, intelligence, status and so on and so forth. Beautiful acts of God are seen in the kindness of women towards other women. And when I say this, I am also thinking about gay men in the same light. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Being Better quotes by Garret Keizer
#112. As we're told that 10 percent of all high school education will be computer-based by 2014 and rise to 50 percent by 2019, and as the PowerPoint throws up aphoristic bromides by the corporate heroes of the digitally driven 'global economy'
the implication being that 'great companies' know what they're doing, while most schools don't
and as we're goaded mercilessly to the conclusion that everything we are, know, and do is bound for the dustbin of history, I want to ask what kind of schooling Bill Gates and Steve Jobs had. Wasn't it at bottom the very sort of book-based, content-driven education that we declare obsolete in the name of their achievements? #Quote by Garret Keizer
Being Better quotes by Sonali Deraniyagala
#113. He'd say, "Don't be scared, Vik. It's good when it's all really black. You can see your dreams better. #Quote by Sonali Deraniyagala
Being Better quotes by Rachel Cusk
#114. ... the problem with being honest, he said, is that you're slow to realize that other people can lie. #Quote by Rachel Cusk
Being Better quotes by Hans Holzer
#115. In all my years of Ghost Hunting I have never been afraid, after all, a ghost is only a fellow human being in trouble #Quote by Hans Holzer
Being Better quotes by Matthew Quick
#116. Maybe if we would just picture our enemies jerking off once in a while, the world would be a better place.
I don't know. #Quote by Matthew Quick
Being Better quotes by Mary Ritter Beard
#117. For hundreds of years the use of the word 'man' has troubled critical scholars, careful translators, and lawyers. Difficulties occur whenever and wherever it is important for truth-seeking purposes to know what is being talked about and the context gives no intimation whether 'man' means just a human being irrespective of sex or means a masculine being and none other. #Quote by Mary Ritter Beard
Being Better quotes by George Gaylord Simpson
#118. The science of systematics has long been affected by profound philosophical preconceptions, which have been all the more influential for being usually covert, even subconscious. #Quote by George Gaylord Simpson
Being Better quotes by Anders Hejlsberg
#119. I love working with smart people and being challenged. I also like working on stuff that's relevant. That's my adrenaline shot. #Quote by Anders Hejlsberg
Being Better quotes by Hilary Duff
#120. You have a better option?"
He didn't. Neither did Sage. I borrowed Larry Steczynski's cell phone to call Rayna. Personally, I never answer the phone if I won't recognize the number. Rayna doesn't feel the same way; she sees an unknown caller as a doorway to a possible romance.
"Hello?" she answered seductively.
"Hey, it's me."
"Clea! Are you okay? I've been phone-stalking you for days. What happened? Where have you been?"
"Sorry, I lost my cell. Everything's okay." Wow-that was easily the biggest lie I'd ever told anyone in my life.
"How okay?" she asked playfully. "Did you meet someone amazing at Carnival and get swept off your feet?"
I loved that those were the only two options for Rayna: Either something had gone horribly wrong, or I'd gotten wrapped up in a wild, whirlwind romance.
I glanced at Sage. "I did meet someone…"
"I knew it! I want to know everything."
"It's kind of a long story."
"I've got nothing but time. Details! #Quote by Hilary Duff
Being Better quotes by Chevy Chase
#121. I just went into this business for laughs. I guess I don't mind being an actor so much now. #Quote by Chevy Chase
