Blind quotes by Kedar Joshi
#1. An idealistic lover is a blind lover, and therefore a true lover; a pragmatic lover is a sighted lover, and therefore a false lover. #Quote by Kedar Joshi
Blind quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#2. Faith ... must be enforced by reason ... when faith becomes blind it dies. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Blind quotes by Terence McKenna
#3. History is ending because the dominator culture has led the human species into a blind alley, and as the inevitable chaostrophie approaches, people look for metaphors and answers. Every time a culture gets into trouble it casts itself back into the past looking for the last sane moment it ever knew. And the last sane moment we ever knew was on the plains of Africa 15,000 years ago rocked in the cradle of the Great Horned Mushroom Goddess before history, before standing armies, before slavery and property, before warfare and phonetic alphabets and monotheism, before, before, before. And this is where the future is taking us because the secret faith of the twentieth century is not modernism, the secret faith of the twentieth century is nostalgia for the archaic, nostalgia for the paleolithic, and that gives us body piercing, abstract expressionism, surrealism, jazz, rock-n-roll and catastrophe theory. The 20th century mind is nostalgic for the paradise that once existed on the mushroom dotted plains of Africa where the plant-human symbiosis occurred that pulled us out of the animal body and into the tool-using, culture-making, imagination-exploring creature that we are. And why does this matter? It matters because it shows that the way out is back and that the future is a forward escape into the past. This is what the psychedelic experience means. Its a doorway out of history and into the wiring under the board in eternity. And I tell you this because if the community understan #Quote by Terence McKenna
Blind quotes by Richard Dawkins
#4. The placebo effect is well documented and not even very mysterious. Dummy pills, with no pharmacological activity at all, demonstrably improve health. That is why double-blind drug trials must use placebos as controls. It's why homoeopathic remedies appear to work, even though they are so dilute that they have the same amount of active ingredient as the placebo control - zero molecules. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Blind quotes by Albert Einstein
#5. As for the search for truth, I know from my own painful searching, with its many blind alleys, how hard it is to take a reliable step, be it ever so small, towards the understanding of that which is truly significant. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Blind quotes by DeForest Soaries
#6. Beyond that, states had to also have electronic voting machines that made it possible for people who are physically handicapped to vote in private ... and the computerized voting machine made it very easy for, particularly, the blind. #Quote by DeForest Soaries
Blind quotes by Frank Lloyd Wright
#7. Now, of course, architecture is a blind spot of our life in America today. How many millions of students go to the university to be educated? They come away conditioned, not enlightened, and they know nothing of architecture, although they have a department somewhere around
probably in the basement. #Quote by Frank Lloyd Wright
Blind quotes by Third Eye Blind
#8. Well don't you know the sound of anger brings a dark result.
And every insult is like a lightning bolt. #Quote by Third Eye Blind
Blind quotes by H. Rider Haggard
#9. Knowledge is to the strong, and we are weak. Too much wisdom would perchance blind our imperfect sight, and too much strength would make us drunk, and overweight our feeble reason till it fell, and we were drowned in the depths of our own vanity. #Quote by H. Rider Haggard
Blind quotes by Richard Baxter
#10. I would put no man upon extremes; but in this case flesh and blood doth make even good men so partial, that they take their duties, and duties of very great worth and weight, to be extremes. If worldly vanities did not blind us, we might see when public or other greater good did call us to deny ourselves and our families. #Quote by Richard Baxter
Blind quotes by R. Scott Bakker
#11. Our words always paint two portraits when we describe our families to others. Outsiders cannot but see the small peeves and follies that wrinkle our relationships with our loved ones. The claims we make in defensive certainty
that we were the one wronged, that we were the one who wanted the best
cannot but fall on skeptical ears since everyone makes the same claimsof virtue and innocence. We are always more than we want to be in the eyes of others simply because we are blind to the bulk of what we are.
...
Mimara had wanted him to see her as a victim, as a long-suffering penitent, more captive than daughter, and not as someone embittered and petulant, someone who often held others accountable for her inability to feel safe, to feel anything unpolluted by the perpetual pang of shame ...
And he loved her the more for it. #Quote by R. Scott Bakker
Blind quotes by Terrence W. Deacon
#12. To navigate in a world without value is to be without rudder or destination, and yet without science, we navigate blind. To many, apparently, blindness is preferable. #Quote by Terrence W. Deacon
Blind quotes by Tom Lehrer
#13. On my income tax 1040 it says 'Check this box if you are blind.' I wanted to put a check mark about three inches away. #Quote by Tom Lehrer
Blind quotes by Robinson Jeffers
#14. Mountains, a moment's earth-waves rising and hollowing; the earth too's an ephemerid; the stars -
Short-lived as grass the stars quicken in the nebula and dry in their summer, they spiral
Blind up space, scattered black seeds of a future; nothing lives long, the whole sky's
Recurrences tick the seconds of the hours of the ages of the gulf before birth, and the gulf
After death is like dated: to labor eighty years in a notch of eternity is nothing too tiresome,
Enormous repose after, enormous repose before, the flash of activity.
Surely you never have dreamed the incredible depths were prologue and epilogue merely
To the surface play in the sun, the instant of life, what is called life? I fancy
That silence is the thing, this noise a found word for it; interjection, a jump of the breath at that silence;
Stars burn, grass grows, men breathe: as a man finding treasure says "Ah!" but the treasure's the essence:
Before the man spoke it was there, and after he has spoken he gathers it,
inexhaustible treasure. #Quote by Robinson Jeffers
Blind quotes by Josh Malerman
#15. By 1914 the world wised up. And you know what we got out of it? Do you know what thousands of years of military uniforms have delivered us? Camouflage. With the advent of camouflage came the inability to distinguish between armies. More soldiers died of friendly fire than at any point in military history. It was like a fun house out there, soldiers facing distorted images of themselves, firing half out of fright. It'd become a matter of hiding, surprise, not unlike using a deer blind to hunt. Surprise was the word of the day. And rightfully so. Everything was an ambush. Can you imagine meeting another army across an open battlefield today? Can you imagine waiting for our generals to formally inaugurate that battle? Shaking hands?! No. Now we hide. We hide because they hide, and they hide because we hide, and everybody's hiding because nobody wants to be out in the open anymore. The End of Bright Colors. #Quote by Josh Malerman
Blind quotes by Thomas Ligotti
#16. We are only chance visitants to this jungle of blind mutations. The natural world existed when we did not, and it will continue to exist long after we are gone. The supernatural crept into life only when the door of consciousness was opened in our heads. The moment we stepped through that door, we walked out on nature. Say what we will about it and deny it till we die
we are blighted by our knowing what is too much to know and too secret to tell one another if we are to stride along our streets, work at our jobs, and sleep in our beds. It is the knowledge of a race of beings that is only passing through this shoddy cosmos. #Quote by Thomas Ligotti
Blind quotes by Douglas Adams
#17. An SEP,' he said, 'is something that we can't see, or don't see, or our brain doesn't let us see, because we think that it's somebody else's problem. That's what SEP means. Somebody Else's Problem. The brain just edits it out, it's like a blind spot. If you look at it directly you won't see it unless you know precisely what it is. Your only hope is to catch it by surprise out of the corner of your eye. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Blind quotes by Peter Cook
#18. I am blind
but I am able to read thanks to a wonderful new system known as 'broil' ... I'm sorry, I'll just feel that again. #Quote by Peter Cook
Blind quotes by Eugene Jarecki
#19. War is party-blind. It doesn't care who is in the Oval Office. The forces that drive us to war don't care whether it's Republican, Democrat, or other. The fact is, these parties are prey to special interests. That is something Eisenhower was afraid of. #Quote by Eugene Jarecki
Blind quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#20. Fortune is said to be blind, but her favorites never are. Ambition has the eye of the eagle, prudence that of the lynx; the first looks through the air, the last along the ground. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Blind quotes by Jean-Luke Swanepoel
#21. Old Bette Davis movies are all she watches now. There's one where Bette Davis's character goes blind, and as the credits rolled my mother said, 'Must be what they mean when they talk about Bette Davis eyes. #Quote by Jean-Luke Swanepoel
Blind quotes by M. Teresa Clayton
#22. The skeleton key unlocks the mind and swings open the door of imagination. A far better place than here A much safer place than there The quintessential somewhere The mystical nowhere The enigmatic anywhere My gift to you - the key to everywhere.
The mortal will find itself lost while the soul always knows the way it is grateful for the darkness and celebrates the day

I can give you peace my peace I give you... but I cannot be your savior or your god - I cannot be the light along your path - I can only give you the lamp and point the way.

The blind will see... the deaf will hear... but those who choose reason will never understand.

Woe to the ones who think they know the answers they will cease to ask the questions that may be their own salvation.

We possess the knowledge of the Universe from conception. Once born we are taught to forget.

If we cannot look out at our world and see our children's vision then we are truly blind we are unable to lead them to paradise.

"Even people who are in the dark search for their shadows. Shadows exist only if there is light. We will never find total darkness - not even in death... ...and we always cast a shadow no matter how overcast our skies become. You are never alone."

Do not listen to the voice that shouts to you from behind desks behind podiums behind altars. Do not pay attention to the orators and the opportunists. Do not be distracted by th #Quote by M. Teresa Clayton
Blind quotes by William Faulkner
#23. Yes, urge I do: warped chrysalis of what blind perfect seed: for who shall say what gnarled forgotten root might not bloom yet with some globed concentrate more globed and concentrate and heady-perfect because the neglected root was planted warped and lay not dead but merely slept forgot? #Quote by William Faulkner
Blind quotes by Vasko Popa
#24. he is blind in his love
and he sees
no other beauty
save her he loves
who will cost him his life #Quote by Vasko Popa
Blind quotes by Jack London
#25. From then on it was war between them. Spitz, as lead-dog and acknowledged master of the team, felt his supremacy threatened by this strange Southland dog. And strange Buck was to him, for of the many Southland dogs he had known, not one had shown up worthily in camp and on trail. They were all too soft, dying under the toil, the frost, and starvation. Buck was the exception. He alone endured and prospered, matching the husky in strength, savagery, and cunning. Then he was a masterful dog, and what made him dangerous was the fact that the club of the man in the red sweater had knocked all blind pluck and rashness out of his desire for mastery. He was preeminently cunning, and could bide his time with a patience that was nothing less than primitive. #Quote by Jack London
Blind quotes by Helen Keller
#26. To be blind is bad, but worse is to have eyes and not see. #Quote by Helen Keller
Blind quotes by John Zande
#27. No man could ever faithfully comprehend how magnificent it is to be blind. #Quote by John Zande
Blind quotes by Max H. Bazerman
#28. Consider the recent financial crisis and its link to faulty reward systems. President Bill Clinton's objective of increasing homeownership by rewarding potential home buyers and lenders is one example. The Clinton administration "went to ridiculous lengths" to increase homeownership in the United State, promoting "paper-thin down payments" and pushing lenders to give mortgage loans to unqualified buyers according to Business Week editor Peter Coy. #Quote by Max H. Bazerman
Blind quotes by Philip K. Dick
#29. We're blind moles. Creeping through the soil, feeling with our snoots. We know nothing. I perceived this . . . now I don't know where to go. Screech with fear, only. Run away. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Blind quotes by Timur Vermes
#30. We all know, of course, what to make of our newspapers. The deaf man writes down what the blind man has told him, the village idiot edits it, and their colleagues in the other press houses copy it. Each story is doused afresh with the same stagnant infusion of lies, so that the "splendid" brew can then be served up to a clueless Volk. #Quote by Timur Vermes
Blind quotes by Cassandra Clare
#31. I didn't know that was how you had been scarred," he said. She looked away .
"Now you will say that it is not so ugly or that you do not even see it, or something like that."
"I see it," Gideon said in a low voice. "I am not blind, and we are a people of many scars. I see it, but it is not ugly. It is just another beautiful part of the most beautiful girl I have ever seen. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Blind quotes by Suzy Kassem
#32. In this busy modernized age, it's easy to be blind to the light all around us. You see, there truly are real angels living among us that look just like you and I. If you pay attention, you can spot one because they're quite easy to find. They're the souls with the eternally deep eyes that always act like something is broken inside, but fail to realize it's just their wings. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Blind quotes by Giovanni Papini
#33. The man who is alone, who stands on his own feet, who is stripped bare, who asks for nothing and wants nothing, who has reached the apex of disinterested­ness not through blind renunciation but through ex­cess of clear vision, turns to the world which stretches out before him as a burned prairie, as a devastated city - a world in which no churches, asylums, refuges, ideals, are left - and says: "Though you promise me nothing I am still with you, I am still an atom of your energies, my work is part of your work; I am your companion and your mirror as you march on your merciless way. #Quote by Giovanni Papini
Blind quotes by Stanley Kunitz
#34. Toward dawn we shared with you
your hour of desolation,
the huge lingering passion
of your unearthly out cry,
as you swung your blind head
towards us and laboriously opened
a bloodshot, glistening eye,
in which we swam with terror and recognition. #Quote by Stanley Kunitz
Blind quotes by Thabiso Monkoe
#35. The one who is color blind sees the way #Quote by Thabiso Monkoe
Blind quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#36. The mob is a monster, with the hands of Briareus, but the head of Polyphemus,
strong to execute, but blind to perceive. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Blind quotes by Robert Burns
#37. Fortune, if thou'll but gie me still
Hale breeks, a scone, an whisky gill,
An' rowth o' rhyme to rave at will,
Take a' the rest,
An' deal't about as thy blind skill
Directs thee best. #Quote by Robert Burns
Blind quotes by John Kramer
#38. Every war, every plague is God's judgment. But every man who rises up to stop the wars and the plagues is God's instrument. Human action is God's will, not blind indifference in the face of suffering. #Quote by John Kramer
Blind quotes by Lyle Lovett
#39. It's true that I did get the girl, but then my grandfather always said, Even a blind chicken finds a few grains of corn now and then. #Quote by Lyle Lovett
Blind quotes by Mike May
#40. I've been blind in my mind since the age of three. #Quote by Mike May
Blind quotes by Julie Kagawa
#41. You're kind of blind, you know?" Puck whispered, smiling to soften his words. "I wouldn't defy Oberon for just anyone. But, for you ... " He leaned forward, touching his forehead to mine. "I'd come back from the dead for you. #Quote by Julie Kagawa
Blind quotes by Stephanie Rawlings-Blake
#42. I'm not blind to the fact that we have to do a better job with our relationships between the community and police. #Quote by Stephanie Rawlings-Blake
Blind quotes by Sylvia Plath
#43. I thought it sounded just like the sort of drug a man would invent. Here was a woman in terrible pain, obviously feeling every bit of it or she wouldn't groan like that, and she would go straight home and start another baby, because the drug would make her forget how bad the pain had been, when all the time, in some secret part of her, that long, blind, doorless and windowless corridor of pain was waiting to open up and shut her in again. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Blind quotes by Temple Grandin
#44. But my favorite of Einstein's words on religion is "Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind." I like this because both science and religion are needed to answer life's great questions. #Quote by Temple Grandin
Blind quotes by Ian McEwan
#45. Blind luck, to arrive in the world with your properly formed parts in the right place, to be born to parents who were loving, not cruel, or to escape, by geographical or social accident, war or poverty. And therefore to find it so much easier to be virtuous. For a while, the case had left her numb, caring less, feeling less, going about her business, telling no one. But she became squeamish about bodies, barely able to look at her own or Jack's without feeling repelled. How was she to talk about this? Hardly plausible, to have told him that at this stage of a legal career, this one case among so many others, its sadness, its visceral #Quote by Ian McEwan
Blind quotes by April Daniels
#46. Maybe it's because your mother is always Mom to you, or maybe it's because I was in denial, but finally it hits me: Mom is just as much his captive as I am. She's not just the quieter parent, the more reasonable one. She's the trustee trapped between the warden and the other prisoner.

Immediately upon the heels of this understanding is another: I must not say this out loud. To say it out loud is to name it, and to name it is to give it irresistible power. That power will mean it can no longer be ignored. The polite fictions and convenient blind spots won't work anymore. Something will have to change.

And I know, with a certainty that fills me with dread, this is something she will not do. If I say the name of this thing he's done to her, she will fight me. She will join him, because she'll have to. Because she'll have to destroy me or else admit I was right. #Quote by April Daniels
Blind quotes by John Foxe
#47. That to fancy the words of consecration perform what the papists call transubstantiation, by converting the wafer and wine into the real and identical body and blood of Christ, which was crucified, and which afterward ascended into heaven, is too gross an absurdity for even a child to believe, who was come to the least glimmering of reason; and that nothing but the most blind superstition could make the Roman Catholics put a confidence in anything so completely ridiculous. #Quote by John Foxe
Blind quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#48. Psychologists say the best way to handle children at this stage of development is not to answer their questions directly but instead to tell them a story. As pediatrician Alan Greene explained, "After conversing with thousands of children, I've decided that what they really mean is, 'That's interesting to me. Let's talk about that together. Tell me more, please?' Questions are a child's way of expressing love and trust. They are a child's way of starting a conversation. So instead of simply insisting over and over again that the object of my son's attention is, in fact, an elephant, I might tell him about how, in India, elephants are symbols of good luck, or about how some say elephants have the best memories of all the animals. I might tell him about the time I saw an elephant spin a basketball on the tip of his trunk, or about how once there was an elephant named Horton who heard a Who. I might tell him that once upon a time, there was an elephant and four blind men; each man felt a different part of the elephant's body: the ears, the tail, the side, and the tusk . . . #Quote by Rachel Held Evans
Blind quotes by Ruta Sepetys
#49. What a group we were. A pregnant girl in love, a kindly shoemaker, an orphan boy, a blind girl, and a giantess who complained that everyone was in her way when she herself took up the most room. And me, a lonely girl who missed her family and begged for a second chance. #Quote by Ruta Sepetys
Blind quotes by Kahoko Yamada
#50. Love is blind; people aren't.

Chubby Chaser, 11/21/14 #Quote by Kahoko Yamada
Blind quotes by M.F.K. Fisher
#51. In America we eat, collectively, with a glum urge for food to fill us. We are ignorant of flavour. We are as a nation taste-blind. #Quote by M.F.K. Fisher
Blind quotes by Yaa Gyasi
#52. Just because someone sees or hears or feels something other folks can't, doesn't mean they're crazy. A blind man don't call us crazy for seeing. #Quote by Yaa Gyasi
Blind quotes by Walter De La Mare
#53. So, blind to Someone I must be. #Quote by Walter De La Mare
Blind quotes by Blaise Pascal
#54. Those who do not hate their own selfishness and regard themselves as more important than the rest of the world are blind because the truth lies elsewhere #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Blind quotes by Joseph Conrad
#55. They were no colonists; their administration was merely a squeeze, and nothing more, I suspect. They were conquerors, and for that you want only brute force - nothing to boast of, when you have it, since your strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others. They grabbed what they could get for the sake of what was to be got. It was just robbery with violence, aggravated murder on a great scale, and men going at it blind - as is very proper for those who tackle a darkness. The conquest of the earth, which mostly means the taking it away from those who have a different complexion or slightly flatter noses than ourselves, is not a pretty thing when you look into it too much. What redeems it is the idea only. An idea at the back of it; not a sentimental pretence but an idea; and an unselfish belief in the idea - something you can set up, and bow down before, and offer a sacrifice to #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Blind quotes by K.C. Cole
#56. There is a hole in the universe.
It is not like a hole in a wall where a mouse slips through, solid and crisp and leading from somewhere to someplace. It is rather like a hole in the heart, an amorphous and edgeless void. It is a heartfelt absence, a blank space where something is missing, a large and obvious blind spot in our understanding of the universe.
That missing something, strange to say, is a grasp of nothing itself. Understanding nothing matters, because nothing is the all-important background upon which everything else happens. #Quote by K.C. Cole
Blind quotes by Eithne Tabor
#57. Stars
Witness to vows unspoken-
Dream's bauble
Shattered-
(Not that it mattered)
One moment's gladness-
Madness?
Even the blind

Stars in the dirt- #Quote by Eithne Tabor
Blind quotes by C. G. Jung
#58. though you want to flee from yourself so as not to have to live what remains unlived until now.56 But you cannot flee from yourself. It is with you all the time and demands fulfillment. If you pretend to be blind and dumb to this demand, you feign being blind and deaf to yourself. This way you will never reach the knowledge of the heart. The knowledge of your heart is how your heart is. From a cunning heart you will know cunning. From a good heart you will know goodness. So that your understanding becomes perfect, consider that your heart is both good and evil. You ask, "What? Should I also live evil?" The spirit of the depths demands: "The life that you could still live, you should live. Well-being decides, not your well-being, not the well-being of the others, but only well-being. #Quote by C. G. Jung
Blind quotes by Edward Kelsey Moore
#59. Mrs Jackson rummaged tapped on Odette's bedroom door as Clarice rummaged through her best friend's chest of drawers searching for something to liven up, or cover up those dreadful dresses Odette always wore. The blind grandmother who had made her clothes back when she was a little girl was dead, but her grandma's style and taste lived on in Odette's sorry closet. #Quote by Edward Kelsey Moore
Blind quotes by Heidi Joy Tretheway
#60. To be loved for your best self is hollow. All can be beautiful, for a time. All can be graceful, in turn. But this love cannot endure. To be loved for your true self is fulfillment. It is a deeper magic, dynamic and wild. It celebrates the scars. It forgives the failings. It embraces the struggle. True love is not blind. It sees. Everything. And yet, it still loves. #Quote by Heidi Joy Tretheway
Blind quotes by Andy Goldsworthy
#61. Time confined into blind caves or extended through tunnels, responds to the call of infinity, which teases with its promise of freedom. outside the body, time is a pair of compasses in the hands of eternity, but inside it is a pendulum, fastened to the heart. the heart takes its measure from the lengthening swing of the pendulum surveying what time is left. in its own rhythm time spreads itself wildly here and there and is crippled elsewhere. its unequally distributed weight wounds my body - that is how the particularities of my life are manifest. #Quote by Andy Goldsworthy
Blind quotes by Belsebuub
#62. To live without love for others is to live in aridity, to be self-serving and fruitless. To live without understanding is to live without sense or purpose. To live without awareness is to live as the deaf, blind and dumb in a world of vibrant light and sound. #Quote by Belsebuub
Blind quotes by John Adams
#63. I will insist the Hebrews have [contributed] more to civilize men than any other nation. If I was an atheist and believed in blind eternal fate, I should still believe that fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations ... They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this Earth. The Romans and their empire were but a bubble in comparison to the Jews. They have given religion to three-quarters of the globe and have influenced the affairs of mankind more and more happily than any other nation, ancient or modern. #Quote by John Adams
Blind quotes by Daniel Kahneman
#64. We can be blind to the obvious, and we are also blind to our blindness. #Quote by Daniel Kahneman
Blind quotes by Salman Rushdie
#65. Well, there they were, the masters of the earth, canned like tuna on wheels and blind as bats, their heads full of mischief and their newspapers of blood. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Blind quotes by John Verdon
#66. Sexual energy in general has tremendous power, the power to concentrate one's attention like nothing else, to become the sole reality, to warp judgement, to obliterate pain and the perception of risk. The power to make all other considerations irrelevant. There is no force on earth that comes close to it in its power to blind and drive the individual in its grip. #Quote by John Verdon
Blind quotes by E.B. White
#67. The mind travels faster than the pen; consequently, writing becomes a question of learning to make occasional wing shots, bringing down the bird of thought as it flashes by. A writer is a gunner, sometimes waiting in the blind for something to come in, sometimes roaming the countryside hoping to scare something up. #Quote by E.B. White
Blind quotes by John Barton
#68. Some readers allow their prejudices to blind them. A good reader knows how to disregard inappropriate responses. #Quote by John Barton
Blind quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#69. The blind cannot see light,
but can feel its warmth.
The deaf cannot hear sound,
but are aware of its power. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Blind quotes by Erasmus
#70. Conniving at your friends' vices, passing them over, being blind to them and deceived by them, even loving and admiring your friends' egregious faults as if they were virtues -- does not this seem pretty close to folly? #Quote by Erasmus
Blind quotes by Brian Houston
#71. When we allow our fears and insecurities to blind us momentarily, we're often tempted to make the gate narrower than God does. #Quote by Brian Houston
Blind quotes by John Hodgman
#72. Borges was unapologetically smart and equally sentimental; a proto-geek, blind to distinctions between low pulp fiction and high criticism, experimental but never arch, and always playful, with a humor as dry as dust. #Quote by John Hodgman
Blind quotes by Thomas Sowell
#73. Where beliefs are not checked against facts, but instead facts must meet the test of consonance with the prevailing vision, we are in the process of sealing ourselves off from feedback from reality. Heedless of the past, we are flying blind into the future. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Blind quotes by Eddie Owens
#74. They don't want it."

Blind quotes by Olaf Stapledon
#75. The truth of the matter was something much more subtle and tremendous than any plain physical miracle could ever be. But never mind that. The important thing was that, when I did see the stars (riotously darting in all directions according to the caprice of their own wild natures, yet in every movement confirming the law), the whole tangled horror that had tormented me finally presented itself to me in its truth and beautiful shape. And I knew that the first, blind stage of my childhood had ended. #Quote by Olaf Stapledon
Blind quotes by Peter De Vries
#76. What baffles me is the comfort people find in the idea that somebody dealt this mess. Blind and meaningless chance seems to me so much more congenial - or at least less horrible. Prove to me that there is a God and I will really begin to despair. #Quote by Peter De Vries
Blind quotes by Chris Hadfield
#77. I try to force my eyes open, but there's not much point - all I can see is a watery blur before my reflexes kick in and my eyelids close. In the space of just a few minutes, I've gone from 20/20 vision to blind. In space. Holding a drill. #Quote by Chris Hadfield
Blind quotes by J.R. Ward
#78. The pause that followed was one she couldn't interpret. Maybe he was pissed she was interfering?
"I just want to make sure you're okay."
"Do you do this with patients a lot?"
"Yes," she lied.
"Havers know you're checking his work?"
"Did he even look at your veins?"
Rehvenge's laugh was low. "I would rather you had called for a different reason."
"I don't understand," she said tightly.
"What? That someone might want to have something to do with you outside of work? You're not blind. You've seen yourself in mirrors. And surely you know you're smart, so it's not all just pretty window dressing."
As far as she was concerned, he was speaking in a foreign language. "I don't understand why you're not taking care of yourself."
"Hmmm." He laughed softly, and she felt the purr as well as heard it in her ear. "Oh…so maybe this is a pretense just so I can see you again."
"Look, the only reason I called was - "
"Because you needed an excuse. You shut me down in the exam room, but really wanted to talk to me. So you called about my arm to get me on the phone. And now you have me." That voice dropped even lower. "Do I get to pick what you do with me?"
She stayed quiet. Until he said, "Hello?"
"Are you finished? Or do you want to run around in circles a little longer, reading into what I'm doing here?"

#79. Incorrect conceptions of race as a social construct (as opposed to a power construct) of racial history as a single march of racial progress (as opposed to a duel of antiracist and racist progress), of the race problem as rooted in ignorance and hate (as opposed to powerful self-interest) -- all come together to produce solutions bound to fail. Terms and sayings like 'I'm not racist' and 'race-neutral' and 'post-racial' and 'color-blind' and 'only one race, the human race' and 'only racists speak about race' and 'Black people can't be racist' and 'White people are evil' are bound to fail in identifying and eliminating racist power and policy. #Quote by Ibram X. Kendi
Blind quotes by Anthony Trollope
#80. Considering how much we are all given to discuss the characters of others, and discuss them often not in the strictest spirit of charity, it is singular how little we are inclined to think that others can speak ill-naturedly of us, and how angry and hurt we are when proof reaches us that they have done so. It is hardly too much to say that we all of us occasionally speak of our dearest friends in a manner in which those dearest friends would very little like to hear themselves mentioned, and that we nevertheless expect that our dearest friends shall invariably speak of us as though they were blind to all our faults, but keenly alive to every shade of our virtues. #Quote by Anthony Trollope
Blind quotes by Andrea Levy
#81. Describe snow to someone who's lived in the desert. Depict the colour blue for a blind man. Almost impossible to fashion the word. #Quote by Andrea Levy
Blind quotes by Steven Erikson
#82. The prince is blind to subtlety. He knows his own ignorance and stupidity so is ever suspicious of others, especially when they say things he does not understand. One cannot negotiate when dragged in the wake of emotions. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Blind quotes by Alan Brennert
#83. They toured the new hospital, the renovated and expanded McVeigh Home, and the (named without apparent irony) Bay View Home for the Blind and Helpless. #Quote by Alan Brennert
Blind quotes by Robert Jordan
#84. Men!" Min muttered at the door. "Too blind to see what a stone could see, and too stubborn to be trusted to think for themselves. #Quote by Robert Jordan
Blind quotes by Anu Lal
#85. The struggle for a life extracts all our attention, and leaves us blind, deaf, dumb and senseless. The writer, the artist, the musician vanishes, without even the charity of a proper cremation. At this point words become formless sounds, and thoughts run out of paper and jump out of the terra firma and fly in the air, forcing us to find someone to share them with, someone who could understand. The fear of wasting words is the worst kind of it, only a writer knows. #Quote by Anu Lal
Blind quotes by J.K. Rowling
#86. Tessa was convinced that it was a lie, and also that everything she had done in her life, telling herself that it was for the best, had been no more than blind selfishness, generating confusion and mess all around. But who could bear to know which stars were already dead, she thought, blinking up at the night sky; could anybody stand to know they all were? #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Blind quotes by Chino XL
#87. I show more blind rage than Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles wrestling in a steel cage. #Quote by Chino XL
Blind quotes by Henry Miller
#88. It has been that way ever since the Greeks - a blind fuck in the mud and then a quick spawn and then death. #Quote by Henry Miller
Blind quotes by Gautama Buddha
#89. Suppose a man threw into the sea a yoke with one hole in it, and the east wind carried it to the west, and the west wind carried it to the east, and the north wind carried it to the south, and the south wind carried it to the north. Suppose there were a blind turtle that came up once at the end of each century. What do you think, bhikkhus? Would that blind turtle put his neck into that yoke with one hole in it?"
"He might, venerable sir, sometime or other at the end of a long period."
"Bhikkhus, the blind turtle would sooner put his neck into that yoke with a single hole in it than a fool, once gone to perdition, would take to regain the human state, I say. Why is that? Because there is no practising of the Dhamma there, no practising of what is righteous, no doing of what is wholesome, no performance of merit. There mutual devouring prevails, and the slaughter of the weak. #Quote by Gautama Buddha

Blind quotes by Rachael Wade
#93. The second he slipped inside of me, all I'd doubted, questioned, or feared evaporated, leaving me with one single, definite truth
I'd fallen in love with him in an all-consuming blaze that would blind me if I wasn't careful. We fit together like poorly cut puzzle pieces, but when the edges joined and were positioned just right, our scattered images came together to create a solid, deliberate piece of art, completely crystal clear and in focus. I was a goner. #Quote by Rachael Wade
Blind quotes by Fred Van Lente

Blind quotes by Evan L. Katz

Blind quotes by Piper Vaughn
#97. I don't care who knows, babe. It sucks not being able to be near you like I want to just 'cause Dre or Nicky might be watching. You hafta know I wanna kiss you, like, all the damn time."
"Why?" Jesse wasn't fishing for compliments. He really didn't understand.
"You actually mean that?"
Jesse nodded his head miserably. Shane lifted his chin. "Because you're smart, and funny, and I can't even hear a single note you sing without getting all turned on…and, well, because I'm falling for you. Like, hard." Shane's forehead wrinkled, his eyes went puppy-dog droopy. "Don't you feel the same way about me?"
Shane's sudden insecurity was sweet and sad and so very endearing. "Of course I do. But you're Shane. I'm just…" A nerd. Ugly, squishy, pale, and too damn blind to get rid of these dumb ass glasses.
"There is no 'just' anything. Jess, you're my boyfriend. Right? #Quote by Piper Vaughn

#99. Would make me blind to the needs of my country, while you and these others, having only love for country and none for my daughter, must be considered neutral? #Quote by Cameron Dokey

#102. God is love, love is blind, Stevie Wonder is blind, therefore Stevie Wonder is God. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Blind quotes by Ernest Becker
#103. In man a working level of narcissism is inseparable from self-esteem, from a basic sense of self-worth. We have learned, mostly from Alfred Adler, that what man needs most is to feel secure in his self-esteem. But man is not just a blind glob of idling protoplasm, but a creature with a name who lives in a world of symbols, on an abstract idea of his own worth, an idea composed of sounds, words, and images, in the air, in the mind, on paper. And this means that man's natural yearning for organismic activity, the pleasures of incorporation and expansion, can be fed limitlessly in the domain of symbols and so into immortality. The single organism can expand into dimensions of worlds and times without moving a physical limb; it can take eternity into itself even as it gaspingly dies. #Quote by Ernest Becker
Blind quotes by Robert Jordan
#104. Even fools say something worthwhile now and again. Even a blind pig finds an acorn sometimes. #Quote by Robert Jordan
Blind quotes by Dominic Riccitello
#105. You know how exit signs are bright and red and at times we're blind to what's behind? The doors are just subliminal metaphors that lead us through life. We never know, but we take a chance and open it. #Quote by Dominic Riccitello

Blind quotes by Angela Carter
#107. The one-eyed man will be King in the country of the blind only if he arrives there in full possession of his partial faculties
that is, providing he is perfectly aware of the precise nature of sight and does not confuse it with second sightnor with madness. #Quote by Angela Carter
Blind quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#108. Things that are truly great need nothing from me, and to somehow think that they do speaks to my utter lack of greatness. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Blind quotes by Joseph Auslander
#109. This is an extremely ambitious book. In addition to science and mathematics, Byers brings to bear insights from literature, philosophy, religion, history, anthropology, medicine, and psychology. The Blind Spot breaks new ground, and represents a major step forward in the philosophy of science. The book is also a page-turner, which is rare for this topic. #Quote by Joseph Auslander
Blind quotes by Jose Saramago
#110. The chronicler would abandon any idea of making a detailed report of all the other ills that are afflicting most of the nearly three hundred inmates being kept in this inhumane quarantine, but he could not fail to mention at least two cases of fairly advanced cancer, for the authorities had no humanitarian scruples when rounded up the blind and confining them here, they even stated that the laws once made is the same for everyone and that democracy is incompatible with preferential treatment. As cruel fate would have it, amongst all these inmates there is only one doctor, and an ophthalmologist at that, the last thing we need. #Quote by Jose Saramago
Blind quotes by Ferdinand Lassalle
#111. Useful as a war against France, undertaken by the Government against the will of the people would be for our revolutionary development, just so dangerous must be the effect upon our democratic development of a war supported by blind popular enthusiasm. #Quote by Ferdinand Lassalle
Blind quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#112. The superior man is the providence of the inferior. He is eyes for the blind, strength for the weak, and a shield for the defenseless. He stands erect by bending above the fallen. He rises by lifting others. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll

Blind quotes by Jeff VanderMeer
#115. a television bomb would instantly blind you with its eruption of images as its icons burned through your flesh and imprinted themselves on your bones in tiny hieroglyphs that recounted the brief history of the body's destruction. #Quote by Jeff VanderMeer
Blind quotes by Suzy Kassem
#116. Killing in the name of religion defines someone who is ignorant and actually void of religion. God does not condone terror. To kill innocent people to make a political statement is like shooting a dove to say hunting is wrong. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Blind quotes by Lesslie Newbigin
#117. The New Age movement, for all the validity of its protest and the value of some of its recommendations, is in truth a very old blind alley. There is a very long history to remind us of what happens when nature is our ultimate point of reference ... Nature knows no ethics. There is no right and wrong in nature; the controlling realities are power and fertility. #Quote by Lesslie Newbigin
Blind quotes by Jostein Gaarder
#118. It was rather like having been color-blind. She had seen some shadows but had not seen the clear ideas. #Quote by Jostein Gaarder

Blind quotes by Tana French
#121. In all your life, only a few moments matter. Mostly you never get a good look at them except in hindsight, long after they've zipped past you: the moment when you decided whether to talk to that girl, slow down on that blind bend, stop and find that condom. I was lucky, I guess you could call it. I got to see one of mine face-to-face, and recognize it for what it was. #Quote by Tana French
Blind quotes by Lewis B. Smedes
#122. Gandhi was right: if we all live by 'an eye for an eye' the whole world will be blind. The only way out is forgiveness. #Quote by Lewis B. Smedes
Blind quotes by N.R. Walker
#123. „So, seeing anyone?"
„Not for the last eighteen years," he deadpanned.
„Oh, shit," I cried, as I realized what I'd just said to a blind man. „I didn't mean seeing as in seeing, I meant seeing as in seeing someone."
Isaac laughed at me. „Oh, that makes sense," he said with a sarcastic laugh. #Quote by N.R. Walker
Blind quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#124. All that Ruby said was so horribly true, she was leaving everything she cared for. She had laid up her treasures on earth only. She had lived solely for the little things of life, the things that pass, forgetting the great things that go onward into eternity bridging the gulf between the two lives and making of death a mere passing of one dwelling to the other. From twilight to unclouded day ... it was no wonder her soul clung in blind helplessness to the only things she knew and loved. #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Blind quotes by John Halstead
#125. So yes, I worship nature. I worship a blind Goddess. For me, she is the only worthy object of worship. She will never care that I worship her. She will never answer a single prayer. But she is always with me… shaping me as I shape her. I will struggle with her to the last gasp of my life. And in the end, in my final act of devotion, I will yield to her. - John Halstead, "I Worship the Blind Goddess #Quote by John Halstead
Blind quotes by Cristiane Serruya
#126. One can say that Javert is our conscience. The ever lurking presence of the law and our own condemnation. The tension between who we were and who we are and who we can be. Javert represents that inescapable, shameful past that forever haunts and persues one's conscience. Javert is the man of the law, and ... There are no surprises with the law. The principle of retribution is simple and monotonous, like Euclidean logic. It's closed to all alternatives and shut up against divine or human intervention ... Indeed, Javert represents the merciless application of the law, the blind Justice that in the end is befuddled by hope and the possibility of redemption without punishment. #Quote by Cristiane Serruya
Blind quotes by Joseph Joubert
#127. Maxims are to the intellect what laws are to actions; they do not enlighten, but they guide and direct, and, although themselves blind, are protective. #Quote by Joseph Joubert
Blind quotes by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
#128. Satan, our adversary, wants us to fail. He spreads lies as part of his effort to destroy our belief. He slyly suggests that the doubter, the skeptic, the cynic is sophisticated and intelligent, while those who have faith in God and His miracles are naive, blind, or brainwashed. #Quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Blind quotes by Cambria Hebert
#129. Honor was the light that flooded my darkness. She was the glasses to my partially blind eyes. Her kisses were like balm to my wounded soul. Her determination to survive even when odds were against her was my wakeup call. #Quote by Cambria Hebert
Blind quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#130. There in the hospital Billy was having an adventure very common among people without power in times of war: he was trying to prove to a willfully deaf and blind enemy that he is interesting to hear and see. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Blind quotes by Walter Brueggemann
#131. On Generosity

On our own, we conclude:
there is not enough to go around

we are going to run short
of money
of love
of grades
of publications
of sex
of beer
of members
of years
of life

we should seize the day
seize our goods
seize our neighbours goods
because there is not enough to go around

and in the midst of our perceived deficit
you come
you come giving bread in the wilderness
you come giving children at the 11th hour
you come giving homes to exiles
you come giving futures to the shut down
you come giving easter joy to the dead
you come – fleshed in Jesus.

and we watch while
the blind receive their sight
the lame walk
the lepers are cleansed
the deaf hear
the dead are raised
the poor dance and sing

we watch
and we take food we did not grow and
life we did not invent and
future that is gift and gift and gift and
families and neighbours who sustain us
when we did not deserve it.

It dawns on us – late rather than soon-
that you "give food in due season
you open your hand
and satisfy the desire of every living thing."

By your giving, break our cycles of imagined scarcity
override our presumed deficits
quiet our anxieties of lack
transform our perceptual field to see
the abundance………mercy upon mercy
#Quote by Walter Brueggemann
Blind quotes by John Wray
#132. Only a blind man could have lived through these last years without seeing what was bearing down upon us; so I made myself blind as I could manage. I wanted to believe the worst was behind me, and I found an easy way to make it so. I simply turned my back on what was coming. #Quote by John Wray
Blind quotes by Walt Whitman
#133. Blind loving wrestling touch, sheath'd hooded sharp-tooth'd touch!

Blind quotes by Fred Hoyle
#134. Some super-calculating intellect must have designed the properties of the carbon atom, otherwise the chance of my finding such an atom through the blind forces of nature would be utterly minuscule. #Quote by Fred Hoyle
Blind quotes by Marcel Proust
#135. The real propaganda is what - if we are genuinely a living member of a nation - we tell ourselves because we have hope, hope being a symbol of a nation's instinct of self-preservation. To remain blind to the unjustness of the cause of the individual "Germany," to recognise at every moment the justness of the cause of the individual "France," the surest way was not for a German to be without judgement, or for a Frenchman to possess it, it was, both for the one and for the other, to be possessed of patriotism. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Blind quotes by Michael Faraday
#136. but let me, as an old man, who ought by this time to have profited by experience, say that when I was younger, I found I often misinterpreted the intentions of people, and found they did not mean what at the time I supposed they meant; and, further, that as a general rule, it was better to be a little dull of apprehension, where phrases seemed to imply pique, and quick in perception, when on the contrary they seemed to imply kindly feeling. The real truth never fails ultimately to appear; and opposing parties if wrong, are sooner convinced when replied to forbearingly, than when overwhelmed. All I mean to say is, that it is better to be blind to the results of partisanship, and quick to see good will. One has more happiness in oneself, in endeavoring to follow the things that make for peace. You can hardly imagine how often I have been heated in private when opposed, as I have thought unjustly and superciliously, and yet I have striven, and succeeded I hope, in keeping down replies of the like kind. And I know I have never lost by it. I would not say all this to you did I not esteem, you as a true philosopher and friend. #Quote by Michael Faraday
Blind quotes by Merle Shain
#137. But who would rush at a benighted man, and give him two black eyes for being blind? #Quote by Merle Shain
Blind quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#138. I read somewhere that luck is not blind, just illiterate. Luck, I mused, is a palliative for those who don't know probability and statistics. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Blind quotes by Martijn Benders
#139. I have always said that whomever has limited preferences cannot be a critic, for the same reason some guy who only likes blondes cant be a jury in a beauty contest, for his idea of beauty is predefined and not based on dynamic reality. Thus, what people call 'preferences' are in fact exactly what makes them blind. For this reason being a writer also means you essentially cannot have the same markup as ordinary people, because getting rid of the precomposed is a too essential part of the whole dynamics of writing. #Quote by Martijn Benders
Blind quotes by Lois Lowry
#140. There were more than usual this time. "It's a big group," Matty whispered to the blind man. "Yes, I can hear that it is. I wonder if somehow they have begun to hear rumors that we may close. #Quote by Lois Lowry

Blind quotes by Gregory Maguire
#142. It's the only condition I know. Bitter Love, Loneliness, contempt for corruption, blind hope. It's where I live. A permanent state of bereavement. This is nothing new. #Quote by Gregory Maguire
Blind quotes by Christopher Rice
#143. People talked about therapy and change and the power of Christ, but maybe you just had to wake up one day and say you weren't going to do it anymore, you just weren't going to act like someone who felt that way, and you had to begin by saying words that felt strange on your tongue, even if they resonated inside your heart. #Quote by Christopher Rice
Blind quotes by Omar Bongo

Blind quotes by Cassandra Clare
#146. I've gotten my Phosphor to work at last." Henry proudly brandished the object. "It functions on the principle of witchlight but is five times more powerful. Merely press a button, and you will see a blaze of light the like of which you have never imagined."
There was a silence. "So," said Will finally, "it's a very, very bright witchlight, then?"
"Exactly," Henry said.
"Is that useful, precisely?" Jem inquired. "After all, witchlight is just for illumination. It's not as if it's dangerous… ."
"Wait till you see it!" Henry replied. He held up the object. "Watch."
Will moved to object, but it was too late; Henry had already pressed the button. There was a blinding flare of light and a whooshing sound, and the room was plunged into blackness. Tessa gave a yelp of surprise, and Jem laughed softly.
"Am I blind?" Will's voice floated out of the darkness, tinged with annoyance. "I'm not going to be at all pleased if you've blinded me, Henry."
"No." Henry sounded worried. "No, the Phosphor seems to - Well, it seems to have turned all the lights in the room off."
"It's not supposed to do that?" Jem sounded mild, as always.
"Er," said Henry, "no. #Quote by Cassandra Clare

Blind quotes by Philip K. Dick
#150. Two realms there are, upper and lower. The upper, derived from hyperuniverse I or Yang, Form I of Parmenides, is sentient and volitional. The lower realm, or Yin, Form II of Parmenides, is mechanical, driven by blind, efficient cause, deterministic and without intelligence, since it emanates from a dead source. In ancient times it was termed 'astral determinism.' We are trapped, by and large, in the lower realm, but are, through the sacraments, by means of the plasmate, extricated. Until astral determinism is broken, we are not even aware of it, so occluded are we. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Blind quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#151. Then what do you want?" she asked softly.
He shook his head without answering. But Sara knew. He wanted to be safe. If he were rich and powerful enough, he would never be hurt, lonely, or abandoned. He would never have to trust anyone. She continued to stroke his hair, playing lightly with the thick raven locks. 'Take a chance on me," she urged. "Do you really have so much to lose?"

He gave a harsh laugh and loosened his arms to release her. "More than you know."

Clinging to him desperately, Sara kept her mouth at his ear. "Listen to me." All she could do was play her last card. Her voice trembled with emotion. "You can't change the truth. You can act as though you're deaf and blind, you can walk away from me forever, but the truth will still be there, and you can't make it go away. I love you." She felt an involuntary tremor run through him. "I love you," she repeated. "Don't lie to either of us by pretending you're leaving for my good. All you'll do is deny us both a chance at happiness. I'll long for you every day and night, but at least my conscience will be clear. I haven't held anything back from you, out of fear or pride or stubbornness." She felt the incredible tautness of his muscles, as if he were carved from marble. "For once have the strength not to walk away," she whispered. "Stay with me. Let me love you, Derek."

He stood there frozen in defeat, with all the warmth and promise of her in his arms ... and he couldn't allow him #Quote by Lisa Kleypas

Blind quotes by Federico Garcia Lorca
#153. After Passing By
The children watch

Lamps go out.
Some blind girls

rise in the air.
The mountains survey
a distant point. #Quote by Federico Garcia Lorca
Blind quotes by Philip Pullman
#154. Waste of time," said the leper. "There's a dozen or more beggars who come here every day, pretending to be cripples, hiring themselves out to the holy men. A couple of drachmas and they'll swear they've been crippled or blind for years then stage a bloody miraculous recovery. Holy men? Healers? Don't make me laugh."
"But this man is different," said Christ.
"I remember him," said the blind man. "Jesus. He come here on the sabbath, like a fool. The priests wouldn't let him heal anyone on sabbath. He should've known that."
"But he did heal someone," said the lame man. "Old Hiram. You remember that. He told him to take up his bed and walk."
"Bloody rubbish," said the blind man. "Hiram went as far as the temple gate, then he lay down and went on begging. Old Sarah told me. He said what was the use of taking his living away? Begging was the only thing he knew how to do. You and your blether about goodness," he said, turning to Christ, "where's the goodness in throwing an old man out into the street without a trade, without a home, without a penny? Eh? That Jesus is asking too much of people."
"But he was good," said the lame man. "I don't care what you say. You could feel it, you could see it in his eyes."
"I never saw it," said the blind man. #Quote by Philip Pullman
Blind quotes by Bono
#155. Every age has its massive moral blind spots. We might not see them, but our children will. #Quote by Bono
Blind quotes by Joseph Conrad
#156. I take it, no fool ever made a bargain for his soul with the devil; the fool is too much of a fool, or the devil too much of a devil - I don't know which. Or you may be such a thunderingly exalted creature as to be altogether deaf and blind to anything but heavenly sights and sounds. Then the earth for you is only a standing place - and whether to be like this is your loss or your gain I won't pretend to say. But most of us are neither one nor the other. The earth for us is a place to live in, where we must put up with sights, with sounds, with smells, too, by Jove! - breathe dead hippo, so to speak, and not be contaminated. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Blind quotes by Hideaki Sorachi
#157. The night is darkest just before dawn. But keep your eyes open; if you avert your eyes from the dark, you'll be blind to the rays of a new day...So keep your eyes open, no matter how dark the night ahead may be. #Quote by Hideaki Sorachi

Blind quotes by Stephen King
#159. Look - here's a table covered with a red cloth. On it is a cage the size of a small fish aquarium. In the cage is a white rabbit with a pink nose and pink-rimmed eyes. In its front paws is a carrot-stub upon which it is contentedly munching. On its back, clearly marked in blue ink, is the numeral 8. Do we see the same thing? We'd have to get together and compare notes to make absolutely sure, but I think we do. There will be necessary variations, of course: some receivers will see a cloth which is turkey red, some will see one that's scarlet, while others may see still other shades. (To color-blind receivers, the red tablecloth is the dark gray of cigar ashes.) Some may see scalloped edges, some may see straight ones. Decorative souls may add a little lace, and welcome - my tablecloth is your tablecloth, knock yourself out. #Quote by Stephen King
Blind quotes by Richard Platt

Blind quotes by William Blake
#161. The human mind cannot go beyond the gift of God, the Holy Ghost. To suppose that art can go beyond the finest specimens of art that are now in the world is not knowing what art is; it is being blind to the gifts of the spirit. #Quote by William Blake
Blind quotes by Spencer Johnson
#162. Life is no straight and easy corridor along which we travel free and unhampered, but a maze of passages, through which we must seek our way, lost and confused, now and again checked in a blind alley. But always, if we have faith, a door will open for us, not perhaps one that we ourselves #Quote by Spencer Johnson

Blind quotes by Erin Hunter
#166. Jaykit is blind... #Quote by Erin Hunter
Blind quotes by Melita Tessy
#167. Don't you dare say these times are hollow
Just because there are storms raging by.
Just lay low on your pillow,
Close your eyes and say goodbye

To the world that you lived in today.
Let your dreams carry you away;
You lived a nightmare all through the day,
It is time to dream, so don't delay.

You searched for a reason to live,
Yes darling, you searched everywhere.
You had to push, you had to strive,
It is time now to get some air.

You searched in all that is outside,
It is time now to look inside,
Cause that is where you'll find
A reason worth keeping in your mind.

These dreams are not an escape, darling,
You need time to see past the lies that blind you.
It is time for you to start running
To those things that are true.

So, don't you dare say these nights are hollow,
Just because there are storms raging by.
Just lay low on your pillow
And lose yourself in this lullaby. #Quote by Melita Tessy
Blind quotes by Ralph Ellison
#168. Then too, you're constantly being bumped against by those of poor vision. Or again, you doubt if you really exist. You wonder whether you aren't simply a phantom in other people's minds. Say, a figure in a nightmare which the sleeper tries with all his strength to destroy. #Quote by Ralph Ellison
Blind quotes by Michael Dickinson
#169. Although their maneuverability is limited, blind flies can fly remarkably well. #Quote by Michael Dickinson
Blind quotes by Debra Robinson
#170. Even a blind pig finds an acorn now and then. #Quote by Debra Robinson
Blind quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#171. That is how they were: they spent their lives proclaiming their proud origins, the historic merits of the city, the value of its relics, its heroism, its beauty, but they were blind to the decay of its years. Dr Juvenal Urbino, on the other hand, loved it enough to see it with the eyes of truth. #Quote by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Blind quotes by Michael Chabon
#172. It was in this man's class that I first began to wonder if people who wrote fiction were not suffering from some kind of disorder--from what I've since come to think of, remembering the wild nocturnal rocking of Albert Vetch, as the midnight disease. The midnight disease is a kind of emotional insomnia; at every conscious moment its victim--even if he or she writes at dawn, or in the middle of the afternoon--feels like a person lying in a sweltering bedroom, with the window thrown open, looking up at a sky filled with stars and airplanes, listening to the narrative of a rattling blind, an ambulance, a fly trapped in a Coke bottle, while all around him the neighbors soundly sleep. this is in my opinion why writers--like insomniacs--are so accident-prone, so obsessed with the calculus of bad luck and missed opportunities, so liable to rumination and a concomitant inability to let go of a subject, even when urged repeatedly to do so. #Quote by Michael Chabon
Blind quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#173. Never look back. You can't change what you've done. You can only change what you're going to do. Pain is always all around us. It's easy to become blind to it. But imagine all the times in your life when you were hurting and going through shit, if just one person had looked over at you and instead of kicking you while you were down, had said, 'It's okay. You're not a bad person. It's just a bad turn of the cards. You'll get through it.' Can you imagine what an incredible world this would be? #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Blind quotes by Wallace Stegner
#174. Order is indeed the dream of man, but chaos, which is only another word for dumb, blind, witless chance, is still the law of nature. #Quote by Wallace Stegner
Blind quotes by Thabiso Monkoe
#175. One who's color blind is the one who sees the way #Quote by Thabiso Monkoe
Blind quotes by Marge Piercy
#176. Writing implies faith in someone listening,/ different in content but not need/ from the child who cries in the night./ Making is an attack on dying, on chaos,/ on blind inertia, on the second law/ of thermodynamics, on indifference, on cold,/ on contempt, on the silence/ that does not follow the chord resolved,/ the sentence spoken, but the something/ that cannot be said. #Quote by Marge Piercy
Blind quotes by Richard Baxter
#177. A graceless, inexperienced preacher is one of the most unhappy creatures upon earth: and yet he is ordinarily very insensible of his unhappiness; for he has so many counters that seem like the gold of saving grace, and so many splendid stones that resemble Christian jewels, that he is seldom troubled with the thoughts of his poverty; but (Rev3:15) thinks he is "rich, and increased in goods, and stands in need of nothing, when he is poor, and miserable, and blind, and naked." He #Quote by Richard Baxter
Blind quotes by Victor Hugo
#178. Factions are blind men who aim correctly. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Blind quotes by William Shakespeare
#179. A lover's eyes will gaze an eagle blind. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Blind quotes by Rebecca M. Gibson
#180. He shot everything that moved in a blind fury. It was as if he were floating outside his body, his flesh acting on pure animal instinct. To kill or be killed. It was exhilarating. #Quote by Rebecca M. Gibson
Blind quotes by Sofie Alberts
#181. Everyone is blind in a blank room. #Quote by Sofie Alberts
Blind quotes by Stephen Batchelor
#182. A person who is asleep is either lost in deep unconsciousness or absorbed in a dream. Metaphorically, this was how the Buddha must have seen both his previous self as well as everyone else he had known: they either were blind to the questions of existence or sought consolation from them in metaphysical or religious fantasies. #Quote by Stephen Batchelor
Blind quotes by Jarod Kintz
#183. I love conducting double blind experiments with unsuspecting peeping Toms. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Blind quotes by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
#184. With most men, unbelief in one thing springs from blind belief in another. #Quote by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
Blind quotes by Scott Weiss
#185. It's important for a leader to hear about his blind spots on a regular basis so working on them is periodically top of mind. #Quote by Scott Weiss
Blind quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#186. The medical profession (is) a conspiracy to hide its own shortcomings. No doubt the same may be said of all professions. They are all conspiracies against the laity ... (U)ntil there is a practicable alternative to blind trust in the doctor, the truth about the doctor is so terrible that we dare not face it. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Blind quotes by Mary Roberts Rinehart
#187. Love sees clearly, and seeing, loves on. But infatuation is blind; when it gains sight, it dies. #Quote by Mary Roberts Rinehart
Blind quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#188. As utterly irrational as it might seem, the greed within me has the most limited vision I can possibly imagine as it has eyes only for the few things it doesn't have, and it is completely blind to all the many remarkable things that it does. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Blind quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#189. You look especially beautiful this morning, Monza.' She sighed, as if that was an accident. As if she hadn't spent an hour preening herself before the mirror. 'Facts are facts. Stating them isn't a gift. You only prove you're not blind.' She yawned, stretched in her saddle, made him wait a moment longer. 'But I'll hear more. #Quote by Joe Abercrombie
Blind quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#190. She led him by the hand to the bed as if he were a blind beggar on the street, and she cut him into pieces with malicious tenderness; she added salt to taste, pepper, a clove of garlic, chopped onion, lemon juice, bay leaf, until he was seasoned and on the platter, and the oven was heated to the right temperature. #Quote by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Blind quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#191. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Blind quotes by Italo Calvino
#192. Why me?' he said. 'That's how all men answer. And all men have a knot on their shoes, something they don't know how to do; an inability that binds them to others. Society depends on this asymmetry between people these days: a dovetailing of skills and competence. But the Flood? If the Flood came and one needed a Noah? Not so much a just man as a man able to bring along the few things it would take to start again. You see, you don't know how to tie your shoes, somebody else doesn't know how to plane wood, someone else again has never read Tolstoy, someone else doesn't know how to sow grain and so on. I've been looking for him for years, and, believe me, it's hard, really hard; it seems people have to hold each other by the hand like the blind man and the lame who can't go anywhere without each other, but argue just the same. It means if the Flood comes we'll all die together. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Blind quotes by David Levithan
#193. I don't think meaning is something that can be explained. You have to understand
hopeful and selectively blind as the next guy, but because I don't think meaning is something that can be explained. You have to understand
it on your own. It's like when you're starting to read. First, you learn the letters. Then, once you know what sounds the letters make, you use them to sound out words. You know that c-a-t leads to cat and d-o-g leads to dog. But then you have to make that extra leap, to understand that the word, the sound, the "cat" is connected to an actual cat, and that "dog" is connected to an actual dog. It's that leap, that understanding, that leads to meaning. And a lot of the time in life, we're still just sounding things out. We know the sentences and how to say them. We know the ideas and how to present them. We know the prayers and which words to say in what order. But that's only spelling. #Quote by David Levithan
Blind quotes by Hilary Mantel
#194. The year now is 1774. Poseurs or not, it is time to grow up. It is time to enter the public realm, the world of public acts and public attitudes. Everything that happens now will happen in the light of history. It is not a midday luminary, but a corpse-candle to the intellect; at best, it is a secondhand lunar light, error-breeding, sand-blind and parched. #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Blind quotes by Assegid Habtewold
#195. You don't need to be Blind Loyal. Having the best interest of that person in your heart shouldn't stop you from constantly giving feedback. #Quote by Assegid Habtewold
Blind quotes by Ramez Naam
#196. Breathe.
Slow.
Observe.
Break the link between sensation and reaction.
Breathe into the gap between them.
Blind reaction is attachment.
Blind reaction is slavery.
Freedom exists in the gap.
Choice exists in the gap.
I exist in the gap. #Quote by Ramez Naam
Blind quotes by Primo Levi
#197. Are today's fears more or less founded than the fears of that time? When it comes to the future, we are just as blind as our fathers. Swiss and Swedes have their anti-nuclear shelters, but what will they find when they come out into the open? There are Polynesia, New Zealand, Tierra del Fuego, the Antarctic: perhaps they will remain unharmed. Obtaining a passport and entry visa is much easier than it was then, so why aren't we going? Why aren't 'we leaving our country? Why aren't we leaving "before"? #Quote by Primo Levi
Blind quotes by Rumi
#198. Greed makes man blind and foolish, and makes him an easy prey for death. #Quote by Rumi
Blind quotes by D.F. Jones
#199. You know, sometimes love can be staring you right in the face, and you can be too blind to see it. #Quote by D.F. Jones
Blind quotes by Chris Esp
#200. Invisible beauty exists only in the blind eye. #Quote by Chris Esp
