"It's so easy to confuse schmoozing ability with talent. #Quote by Susan Cain

They confuse the fuck out of me and make me twisted inside," he whispered as he gently touched his forehead to hers. "Tell me it's not just me who feels this connection," he muttered.
"It's not," she whispered. #Quote by Amelia Hutchins

Confuse quotes by Stefan Molyneux
#18. To be exploited fundamentally means to be confused. When you're not confused you can't be exploited because you have clarity about the situation. To confuse people you must provide contradictory information. People who really want to do you harm will provide you confusing measures of good and bad feedback because that keeps you disorientated. Evil always want to camouflage itself as virtue witch means all the bad things that evil does is called justice against immorality. So they camouflage their brutality as a mask of virtue. Camouflage is so fundamentally an aspect of the predator-prey relationships.

The mugger does not camouflage himself but, that's because he can leave. He is gonna run off and you'll never find him or catch him or at least that's the goal or plan right? The relationships were you're supposed to stay and continue to provide resources are the ones were camouflage is the most essential because you're constantly looking at somebody who is a predator and that have to continually camouflage themselves as somebody who is not a predator. The most fundamental thing is the camouflage of non-empathy with empathy. This is why people who lack empathy always use the language of empathy and that's whats so confusing.

There are a lot of great antidotes to this. I mean, you just ask that person questions about yourself that they dont have any self interest in knowing and find out whether they know the answers. All the things personal to you that don #Quote by Stefan Molyneux
Confuse quotes by Paul Thomas Anderson
#19. It's a gamble you take, the risk of alienating an audience. But there's a theory - sometimes it's better to confuse them for five minutes than let them get ahead of you for 10 seconds. #Quote by Paul Thomas Anderson
Confuse quotes by Keith Johnstone
#20. Most people I meet are secretly convinced that they're a little crazier than the average person. People understand the energy necessary to maintain their own shields, but not the energy expended by other people. They understand that their own sanity is a performance, but when confronted by other people they confuse the person with the role. #Quote by Keith Johnstone
Confuse quotes by Adele Faber
#21. Steady denial of feelings can confuse and enrage kis. Also teaches them not to know what their feelings are--not to trust them. #Quote by Adele Faber
Confuse quotes by Woody Allen
#22. They confuse everything I do with my life. #Quote by Woody Allen
Confuse quotes by Frederick Lenz
#23. Being a siddha master is indeed a great accomplishment, but it is not the same as being enlightened. People confuse siddha masters, who have the power to perform miracles, with enlightened masters who can enter into samadhi. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Confuse quotes by Angela Carter
#24. 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
Confuse quotes by Elmar Hussein
#25. İt is not true that the more you read, the more intelligent you become. Without thinking you cannot be intelligent. You need to think in order to avoid ready-form answers, which can satisfy the inquisitive mind, but cannot give a clear insight into anything, making the brain only some kind of container of various information similar to the microchip of robot or computer. You would become a social robot whose brain contains various information but cannot think. That is why most men know a lot, but learn nothing from that knowledge. Most men know a lot, but can understand nothing on the base of that knowledge. However, it is not also true that the more you think, the more intelligent you become. Without reading you cannot be intelligent. You need to read, especially scientific literature, in order to model any problem which fascinates your mind in a proper and clear way. There cannot be vacuum in the human mind, if there is no scientific rationality there, then mystical irrationality would cover the whole space in your mind. There is no need to emphasize that being under the strong influence of mystical irrationality would confuse your mind more and more. But if scientific rationality appears, mystical irrationality disappears immediately. #Quote by Elmar Hussein
Confuse quotes by Gore Vidal
#26. As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Confuse quotes by Brene Brown
#27. I see the cultural messaging everywhere that says an ordinary life is a meaningless life ... I know the yearning to believe that what I'm doing matters and how easy it is to confuse that with the drive to be extraordinary. I know how seductive it is to use the celebrity culture yardstick to measure the smallness of our lives. And I also understand how grandiosity, entitlement, and admiration-seeking feel like just the right balm to soothe the ache of being too ordinary and inadequate. #Quote by Brene Brown
Confuse quotes by Adam Schlesinger
#28. I think people sometimes confuse 'catchy' with something that should automatically be a hit in today's world. I mean, obviously we write a lot of stuff that's catchy, that sticks in your head. But that doesn't necessarily mean that middle-school kids are going to want to listen to a song about a lawyer or a Subaru or whatever. #Quote by Adam Schlesinger
Confuse quotes by Jarod Kintz
#29. Add smoke, not fire. You want to confuse your competition, not kill them. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Confuse quotes by A.J. Drenth
#30. Since ENPs are strong intuitives, they may confuse being intuitive with being introverted, since both I and N can be associated with reflectiveness. ENPs may also be less physically active than other extraverts, since it is really their mind that is most actively engaging with the world. So while their attention is still outwardly directed, the predominantly mental nature of their extraversion may serve as a point of confusion. Our #Quote by A.J. Drenth
Confuse quotes by Ian Paisley
#31. Never confuse sitting on your side with being on your side. #Quote by Ian Paisley
Confuse quotes by Stephen Batchelor
#32. Exotic names, robes, insignia of office, titles - the trappings of religion - confuse as much as they help. They endorse the assumption of the existence of an elite whose explicit commitment grants them implicit extraordinariness. #Quote by Stephen Batchelor
Confuse quotes by J. Nozipo Maraire
#33. There is not a man in the world who is worth your dignity. Do not confuse self-sacrifice with love. #Quote by J. Nozipo Maraire
Confuse quotes by Henry Watson Fowler
#34. Those who run to long words are mainly the unskillful and tasteless; they confuse pomposity with dignity, flaccidity with ease, and bulk with force. #Quote by Henry Watson Fowler
Confuse quotes by Christopher G. Nuttall
#35. Do not confuse "duty" with what other people expect of you; they are utterly different. Duty is a debt you owe to yourself to fulfil obligations you have assumed voluntarily. Paying that debt can entail anything from years of patient work to instant willingness to die. Difficult it may be, but the reward is self-respect. -Robert A. Heinlein #Quote by Christopher G. Nuttall
Confuse quotes by Lisa Tawn Bergren
#36. Well, hello there," I said, "you big, beautiful overgrown passageway." I looked over to Lia. "Let's confuse 'em a little. #Quote by Lisa Tawn Bergren
Confuse quotes by Carl Sagan
#37. [Science] works. It is not perfect. It can be misused. It is only a tool. But it is by far the best tool we have, self-correcting, ongoing, applicable to everything. It has two rules. First: there are no sacred truths; all assumptions must be critically examined; arguments from authority are
worthless. Second: whatever is inconsistent with the facts must be discarded or revised. We must understand the Cosmos as it is and not confuse how it is with how we wish it to be. The obvious is sometimes false; the unexpected is sometimes true. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Confuse quotes by Harry S. Truman
#38. If you can't beat 'em, confuse 'em. #Quote by Harry S. Truman
Confuse quotes by Jayden Hunter
#39. A lot of tragedy would be averted if people didn't confuse trust with love. I expect my clients to trust me. I really don't care if they hate me. ~ Brandon Hull #Quote by Jayden Hunter
Confuse quotes by Rachel Pollack
#40. Do not confuse the 'subconscious' with the 'unconscious', whose attributes include courage as well as true knowledge. A great deal of confusion has resulted from the use of these two terms as synonymous. I am using the term 'subconscious' here to stand for material -desires, anxieties, fears, hopes - repressed by the conscious mind as it deals with the outer realities of life. 'Unconscious' means the absic energy of life, that area of being beyond the ego. The subconscious, despite its hidden qualities, is really an extension of the ego. In a sense, it embodies the ego's absolute domain, that realm where it makes no compromises with reality. Because it does not concern itself with consequences the subconscious will walk you in front of a truck to avoid an unpleasant conversation. The unconscious on the other hand, balances and supports us by joining us to the great surge of life beyond our individual selves. The Hanged Man in the Major Arcana gives us a powerful image of this vital connection. #Quote by Rachel Pollack
Confuse quotes by Alan W. Watts
#41. At one extreme of its meaning, "myth" is fable, falsehood, or superstition. But at another, "myth" is a useful and fruitful image by which we make sense of life in somewhat the same way that we can explain electrical forces by comparing them with the behavior of water or air. Yet "myth," in this second sense, is not to be taken literally, just as electricity is not to be confused with air or water. Thus in using myth one must take care not to confuse image with fact, which would be like climbing up the signpost instead of following the road. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Confuse quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#42. Where am I?" you ask. Where you are is where the things you've denied worshipping have taken you. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Confuse quotes by Jeet Thayil
#43. Women are more evolved biologically and emotionally, that's well known
and it's obvious. But they confuse sex and the spirit; they don't
separate. Men, as you know, always separate: they separate
their human and dog natures. #Quote by Jeet Thayil
Confuse quotes by John F. MacArthur Jr.
#44. You can't confuse childlike faith with childish thinking. #Quote by John F. MacArthur Jr.
Confuse quotes by Marsha Blackburn
#45. Politicians like to confuse congressional spending with earmarks. There is a difference. #Quote by Marsha Blackburn
Confuse quotes by David Richo
#46. I must admit, however, that this is mostly a book of guesses - as any book on love must be. My guess is that loving is what we are here for, that love is what every one of us deserves to receive and is here to give, that love alone makes this earth the heaven it was meant to be. The guess turns into a conundrum when we realize that so many of us prefer the signs that point to heaven over heaven itself. We yearn for and talk about the love we want. We lament the love we have been deprived of. Yet we sometimes fail to take the steps that can help it happen for us.
The puzzle becomes even more confounding when we sometimes prefer the hell of no love at all, which we bring on by our own unskillful choices or by our endurance of abuse or betrayal, especially from those who say they love us. This book proposes that love is real when we dare to become as loving as we can be toward ourselves and others and as careful as we can be not to confuse a history with someone or a connection that does not work for us with true love. #Quote by David Richo
Confuse quotes by David Guterson
#47. When it's time to confess, you don't know what you're saying. Are you telling the truth, or do you confuse your lies with reality? The question is comical. The answer is lost in the maelstroms of consciousness. It's even impossible to pretend, eventually, that the question wasn't asked. You've been kidding yourself about yourself for so long, you're someone else. Your you is just a fragile fabrication. Every morning, you have to wake up, assemble this busy, dissembling monster, and get him or her on his or her feet again for another round of fantasy. #Quote by David Guterson
Confuse quotes by Robert Edmond Jones
#48. Many people confuse imagination with ingenuity, with inventiveness. But imagination is not this thing at all. It is the peculiar power of seeing with the eye of the mind. And it is the very essence of the theatre. #Quote by Robert Edmond Jones
Confuse quotes by Thomas Sowell
#49. Virtually no idea is too ridiculous to be accepted, even by very intelligent and highly educated people, if it provides a way for them to feel special and important. Some confuse that feeling with idealism. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Confuse quotes by Charley Reese
#50. Don't live beyond your means. Don't buy more than you can pay for. Don't expect to get rich quick. And don't confuse salesmen for friends or advisers. #Quote by Charley Reese
Confuse quotes by Brenda Blethyn
#51. I think people often confuse success with fame and stardom. #Quote by Brenda Blethyn
Confuse quotes by Ken Wilber
#52. THE ULTIMATE METAPHYSICAL SECRET, if we dare state it so simply, is that there are no boundaries in the universe. Boundaries are illusions, products not of reality but of the way we map and edit reality. And while it is fine to map out the territory, it is fatal to confuse the two. #Quote by Ken Wilber
Confuse quotes by Anonymous
#53. Everyone says that loves hurts, but that's not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Everyone confuse these things with love but reality, love is the only thing in this world that covers up all the pain and makes us feel wonderful again. #Quote by Anonymous
Confuse quotes by Novoneel Chakraborty
#54. People judge the unknown with their knowledge of the known.
.
Fear is the most prized illusion that we create for ourselves.
.
Human beings are designed in a way that they always live with one half of their self in the past and the other half in the present.
.
Love doesn't always happen to strengthen our beliefs. Sometimes it happens to destroy all our previous beliefs and faith and gives us a chance to re-look at our own conclusions.
.
We all are designed to remember things. So, if you try to forget, you will suffer. Accept and you shall shine like never before. The greatest lesson love can give you is how to live a complete life by accepting its incomplete ways. If you can't hope in love, you can't live.
.
Accidents happen Mini but that doesn't mean you stop travelling.
.
Sometimes we confuse need and necessity, I guess. Necessity is common to all but need is person-specific.
.
What to do when you are in love with the journey but at the same time scared of the undesirable destination which you know is going to arrive sooner or later?
.
Sometimes we lie not to cover the truth but to cover that side of us which the truth may strip to bareness. #Quote by Novoneel Chakraborty
Confuse quotes by Henry Giroux
#55. Not only does neoliberalism undermine both civic education and public values and confuse education with training, it also treats knowledge as a product, promoting a neoliberal logic that views schools as malls, students as consumers, and faculty as entrepreneurs. #Quote by Henry Giroux
Confuse quotes by Jerry Bridges
#56. So we see that God has made provision for our holiness. Through Christ He has delivered us from sin's reign so that we now can resist sin. But the responsibility for resisting is ours. God does not do that for us. To confuse the potential for resisting (which God provided) with the responsibility for resisting (which is ours) is to court disaster in our pursuit of holiness. #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Confuse quotes by Terry Gross
#57. I think there's always an expectation when you're a first generation, especially a first-generation Nigerian, of sort of being a doctor or a lawyer or an engineer. And so, you know, sort of my initial pursuits into the arts and that I was going to pursue film as a career didn't confuse them, but it was definitely something that they were scared about. #Quote by Terry Gross
Confuse quotes by Baron Vaughn
#58. I read recently that I was born in Arizona. I wasn't born in Arizona. I was born in New Mexico, but I can understand why people might confuse those two Southwestern desert states. #Quote by Baron Vaughn
Confuse quotes by Fritjof Capra
#59. The basic recurring theme in Hindu mythology is the creation of the world by the self-sacrifice of God - "sacrifice" in the original sense of "making sacred" - whereby God becomes the world which, in the end, becomes again God. This creative activity of the Divine is called lila, the play of God, and the world is seen as the stage of the divine play. Like most of Hindu mythology, the myth of lila has a strong magical flavour. Brahman is the great magician who transforms himself into the world and then performs this feat with his "magic creative power", which is the original meaning of maya in the Rig Veda. The word maya - one of the most important terms in Indian philosophy - has changed its meaning over the centuries. From the might, or power, of the divine actor and magician, it came to signify the psychological state of anybody under the spell of the magic play. As long as we confuse the myriad forms of the divine lila with reality, without perceiving the unity of Brahman underlying all these forms, we are under the spell of maya. (...) In the Hindu view of nature, then, all forms are relative, fluid and ever-changing maya, conjured up by the great magician of the divine play. The world of maya changes continuously, because the divine lila is a rhythmic, dynamic play. The dynamic force of the play is karma, important concept of Indian thought. Karma means "action". It is the active principle of the play, the total universe in action, where everything is dynamically connect #Quote by Fritjof Capra
Confuse quotes by Grant McLachlan
#60. Never confuse determination with arrogance. Arrogance will look down on you, determination will run over you. #Quote by Grant McLachlan
Confuse quotes by باسم صبرى - إيلوثيريا Eleutheria - Bassem Sabry
#61. One must not confuse - as one often does - what one wants for himself and what those around him and close to him want for him, what society believes is the correct correctness for your and everyone: and that one must choose for oneself what one wants for oneself, even if it were all of the above #Quote by باسم صبرى - إيلوثيريا Eleutheria - Bassem Sabry
Confuse quotes by Daniel H. Wilson
#62. In my books the technology that I choose to talk about has to serve the themes. What that means is that I end up having to cut out a lot of cool technology that would be really fun to describe and play with, but which would just confuse everybody. So in 'Amped,' I focus on neural implants. #Quote by Daniel H. Wilson
Confuse quotes by Merold Westphal
#63. To assume that one's existential task is completed when the individual is brought into right relation with society, that is, when the individual has been socialized, is to absolutize society and confuse society with God. #Quote by Merold Westphal
Confuse quotes by Mark Hatfield
#64. I want to caution that we must not confuse patriotism with blind endorsement of bad policies. #Quote by Mark Hatfield
Confuse quotes by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
#65. It is dull enough to confuse the eye in following, pronounced enough to constantly irritate and provoke study, and when you follow the lame uncertain curves for a little distance they suddenly commit suicide - plunge off at outrageous angles, destroy themselves in unheard of contradictions. #Quote by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Confuse quotes by Pope Francis
#66. Don't confuse the evil of avoiding pregnancy by itself, with abortion. Abortion is not a theological problem, it is a human problem, it is a medical problem. You kill one person to save another, in the best case scenario. #Quote by Pope Francis
Confuse quotes by Mystery
#67. Persistence - This is another way to relieve her of any responsibility for what is happening. Of course, don't confuse persistence with begging, arguing, or being pushy, needy, or creepy. All it means is don't give up too easily. Girls may test you to find out how easily you throw in the towel - they want to gauge your self-confidence. Just assume that she is giving a little token resistance, and continue. If she didn't resist at least a little bit, she would feel like a slut - and that's not going to happen. And if you can't take her crap, how in the world are you going to protect her from other people's crap?
This can be tricky - an overly aggressive man might misinterpret all resistance as being merely token and could eventually find himself facing a rape charge. However, a man who isn't persistence enough will acquiesce every time a women resists, when in may cases she was secretly hoping he could be a little more forceful. #Quote by Mystery
Confuse quotes by Jerome Groopman
#68. Hope is one of our central emotions, but we are often at a loss when asked to define it. Many of us confuse hope with optimism, a prevailing attitude that "things turn out for the best." But hope differs from optimism. Hope does not arise from being told to "Think Positively," or from hearing an overly rosy forecast. Hope, unlike optimism, is rooted in unalloyed reality. Although there is no uniform definition of hope, I found on that seemed to capture what my patients had taught me. Hope is the elevating feeling we experience when we see - in the mind's eye- a path to a better future. Hope acknowledges the significant obstacles and deep pitfalls along that path. True hope has no room for delusion. #Quote by Jerome Groopman
Confuse quotes by Khem Veasna
#69. All great leaders are challengers. Don´t confuse with stubborn. You are not stubborn, but you are challenger. When you are sure what is right, you have to struggle all your best to challenge it. Don´t care with low life people around think abet you; they are in the low level. Go ahead to the point you wish please. I really appreciate you. #Quote by Khem Veasna
Confuse quotes by Carrie Jones
#70. A pixie's true skin color is blue. Cookie Monster, Grover, and other lovable Muppets are also blue. Do not confuse the two. Muppets don't kill you. Usually. #Quote by Carrie Jones
Confuse quotes by David Carson
#71. Dont confuse legibility with communication. Just because something is legible doesnt mean it communicates and, more importantly, doesnt mean it communicates the right thing. #Quote by David Carson
Confuse quotes by Billy Graham
#72. If you know Christ, you don't need to beg for the Holy Spirit to come into your life; He is already there - whether you "feel" His presence or not. Don't confuse the Holy Spirit with an emotional feeling or a particular type of spiritual experience. #Quote by Billy Graham
Confuse quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#73. Take bold decisions. Don't let doubts fumble decisions in your mind and make you confused over them. Pursue what you are convinced to do; else you set yourself up where you do not belong. #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Confuse quotes by Criss Jami
#74. It helps to not confuse theological philosophers with evangelists. There is a difference but objectively neither better than the other: an evangelist's mission is to convert; a theological philosopher's mission is to build an understanding of a position. #Quote by Criss Jami
Confuse quotes by Gabor Mate
#75. Peer-oriented kids are repelled by similarity to their parents and want to be as different as possible from them. Since sameness means closeness, pursuing difference is a way of distancing. Such children will often go out of their way to take the opposite point of view and form opposite kinds of preferences. They are filled with contrary opinions and judgments.

We may confuse this obsessive need for difference from the parents with the child's quest for individuality. That would be a misreading of the situation. Genuine individuation would be manifested in all of the child's relationships, not just with adults. A child truly seeking to be her own person asserts her selfhood in the face of all pressures to conform. Quite the reverse, many of these "strongly individualistic" children are completely consumed with melding with their peer group, appalled by anything that may make them seem different. What adults see as the child's individualism masks an intense drive to conform to peers. #Quote by Gabor Mate
Confuse quotes by C.S. Lewis
#76. We must sometimes get away from the Authorized Version, if for no other reason, simply because it is so beautiful and so solemn. Beauty exalts, but beauty also lulls. Early associations endear, but they also confuse. Through that beautiful solemnity, the transporting or horrifying realities of which the Book tells may come to us blunted and disarmed, and we may only sigh with tranquil veneration when we ought to be burning with shame, or struck dumb with terror, or carried out of ourselves by ravishing hopes and adorations ... #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Confuse quotes by Jean-Luc Roy
#77. If you can't confuse them with the truth, bedazzle them with bullshit. #Quote by Jean-Luc Roy
Confuse quotes by Ivan Illich
#78. The pupil is ... 'schooled' to confuse teaching with learning, grade advancement with education, a diploma with competence, and fluency with the ability to say something new. #Quote by Ivan Illich
Confuse quotes by Richard Russo
#79. Diverting one's attention from the past was not the same as envisioning and embarking upon a future. On the other hand, if the past were razed, the slate wiped clean, maybe fewer people would confuse it with the future, and that at least would be something. #Quote by Richard Russo
Confuse quotes by Leife Shallcross
#80. Enchantments and dreams: I suspect they are made of the same stuff. They each beguile the mind and confuse the senses with wonder and strangeness so all that was familiar becomes freakish, and the most bizarre of things intimate and natural. For the longest time after the curse fell, I did not know if I was a beast who dreamed of being a man, or a man who dreamed he was a beast. #Quote by Leife Shallcross
Confuse quotes by Guy Consolmagno
#81. One of the more popular activities was "Talk-O-Matic". Five people at a time could write messages, and read each other's messages, on the same screen. Today, Internet chat rooms work on the same principle. One of the remarkable new features of this page was that you could log in with an invented name, and pretend you were anyone you wanted - any name, any age, any gender. One favorite trick was to log in using the name of someone else already logged into the page, simply to confuse everyone else. #Quote by Guy Consolmagno
Confuse quotes by Christine A. Courtois
#82. Kaffman (2009) described childhood victimization as a "silent epidemic", and Finkelhor, Turner, Ormrod, and Hamby (2010) reported that children are the most traumatized class of humans around the globe. The findings of these researchers are at odds with the view that children have protected status in most families, societies, and cultures. Instead, Finkelhor reports that children are prime targets and highly vulnerable, due principally to their small size, their physical and emotional immaturity with its associated lack of control, power and resources; and their related dependency on caregivers. They are subjected to many forms of exploitation on an ongoing basis, imposed on them by individuals with greater power, strength, knowledge, and resources, many of whom are, paradoxically and tragically, responsible for their care and welfare. These traumas are interpersonal in nature and involve personal transgression, violation and exploitation of the child by those who rely on the child's lesser physical abilities, innocence, and immaturity to intimidate, bully, confuse, blackmail, exploit, or otherwise coerce.

In the worst-case scenario, a parent or other significant caregiver directly and repeatedly abuses a child or does not respond to or protect a child or other vulnerable individual who is being abused and mistreated and isolates the child from others through threats or with direct violence. Consequently, such an abusive, nonprotective, or malevolently exploitative #Quote by Christine A. Courtois
Confuse quotes by David F. D'Alessandro
#83. Every brand builder will face a million temptations to obscure, dilute, or confuse his or her brand message. These temptations fall under two general headings: boredom and the desire for growth. #Quote by David F. D'Alessandro
Confuse quotes by Iain Banks
#84. Oh, they never lie. They dissemble, evade, prevaricate, confound, confuse, distract, obscure, subtly misrepresent and willfully misunderstand with what often appears to be a positively gleeful relish and are generally perfectly capable of contriving to give one an utterly unambiguous impression of their future course of action while in fact intending to do exactly the opposite, but they never lie. Perish the thought. #Quote by Iain Banks
Confuse quotes by Robert O. Mendelsohn
#85. Although it is important to examine the consequences of today's actions far into the future, it is important not to confuse far future actions with what is done today. The impact of emissions that are made after 2100 has no bearing on what the world should do for the next 30 or even 100 years. #Quote by Robert O. Mendelsohn
Confuse quotes by Laura Lane McNeal
#86. Those called penny bags. Each of them got a brand-new penny on the bottom. The light reflecting off the penny supposed to confuse the flies, so they don't come around and bother the food, although every time I see a fly, they confused enough already. Know what I mean?" Queenie chuckled. #Quote by Laura Lane McNeal
Confuse quotes by Paul Craig Roberts
#87. A true patriot does not confuse government with country. A patriot's loyalty is to his country, and loyalty to country requires holding government accountable. #Quote by Paul Craig Roberts
Confuse quotes by Steve Coogan
#88. I use improvisation as a writing tool to help produce material that goes into a script, but a well-crafted script shouldn't sound scripted, and oftentimes people confuse something that looks like improvisation for what is actually a very well-written script that is well-acted. #Quote by Steve Coogan
Confuse quotes by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
#89. To write history is as important as to make history. It is an unchanging truth that if the writer does not remain true to the maker, then it takes on a quality that will confuse humanity. #Quote by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
Confuse quotes by Jeanne M. Dams
#90. Sometime I'll get around to asking why the English nobility have so blasted many names that a conversation about them is like reading a Russian novel. I have a private suspicion it's done on purpose to confuse foreigners. #Quote by Jeanne M. Dams
Confuse quotes by Elizabeth Hoyt
#91. This is my social face," he said lightly. "Don't confuse it with the animal beneath. #Quote by Elizabeth Hoyt
Confuse quotes by Sydney J. Harris
#92. As we grow older, we should learn that these are two quite different things. Character is something you forge for yourself; temperament is something you are born with and can only slightly modify. Some people have easy temperaments and weak characters; others have difficult temperaments and strong characters. We are all prone to confuse the two in assessing people we associate with. Those with easy temperaments and weak characters are more likable than admirable; those with difficult temperaments and strong characters are more admirable than likable. #Quote by Sydney J. Harris
Confuse quotes by Najwa Zebian
#93. Don't tell me there's no place for innocent hearts in this world. Don't tell me I need to accept what I don't believe in. I respect it. Don't confuse my values for my stubbornness, although I am stubborn. Don't confuse my positive attitude for being naive. Allow me to wrap my heart around you for a moment. Listen to this. Innocent hearts may not belong anywhere in this world but they are big enough for any heart in this world. Innocent hearts belong in innocent hearts. Innocent hearts belong in the hearts of those who genuinely want happiness. #Quote by Najwa Zebian
Confuse quotes by Joseph Lewis
#94. If Atheism writes upon the blackboard of the Universe a question mark, it writes it for the purpose of stating that there is a question yet to be answered. Is it not better to place a question mark upon a problem while seeking an answer than to put the label "God" there and consider the matter solved? Does not the word "God" only confuse and make more difficult the solution by assuming a conclusion that is utterly groundless and palpably absurd? #Quote by Joseph Lewis
Confuse quotes by Dennis G. Michno
#95. If one asks "Why do we need ceremonial or ritual?" the answer is simply to ensure order so that the liturgy may speak to the hearts of people directly and not confuse them in the name of relevance or freedom. It is the role and obligation of the celebrant at liturgical rites to ensure that the atmosphere in which the liturgy is celebrated is one that will not impede an awareness of the presence of God, an atmosphere that will allow the Word of God to be heard with understanding, and, most importantly, an atmosphere that will allow the sacramental action to work clearly and directly while at the same time acknowledging mystery, the presence of "the Other" in our worship. Thanksgiving for our community in Christ as the people of God, proclamation of the Gospel, and celebration of the Gospel sacraments: these define the function of liturgy. #Quote by Dennis G. Michno
Confuse quotes by Zadie Smith
#96. Don't confuse honours with achievement. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Confuse quotes by Steven Pinker
#97. As people age, they confuse changes in themselves with changes in the world, and changes in the world with moral decline - the illusion of the good old days. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Confuse quotes by Amilcar Cabral
#98. Do not confuse the reality you live in with the ideas you have in your head. #Quote by Amilcar Cabral
Confuse quotes by George Carlin
#99. Don't confuse me with those who cling to hope. I enjoy describing how things are, I have no interest in how they 'ought to be.' And I certainly have no interest in fixing them. I sincerely believe that if you think there's a solution, you're part of the problem. My motto: Fuck Hope! #Quote by George Carlin
Confuse quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#100. In our profession, we tend to name things exactly as we see them. Big red stars we call red giants. Small white stars we call white dwarfs. When stars are made of neutrons, we call them neutron stars. Stars that pulse, we call them pulsars. In biology they come up with big Latin words for things. MDs write prescriptions in a cuneiform that patients can't understand, hand them to the pharmacist, who understands the cuneiform. It's some long fancy chemical thing, which we ingest. In biochemistry, the most popular molecule has ten syllables - deoxyribonucleic acid! Yet the beginning of all space, time, matter, and energy in the cosmos, we can describe in two simple words, Big Bang. We are a monosyllabic science, because the universe is hard enough. There is no point in making big words to confuse you further.
Want more? In the universe, there are places where the gravity is so strong that light doesn't come out. You fall in, and you don't come out either: black hole. Once again, with single syllables, we get the whole job done. Sorry, but I had to get all that off my chest. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Confuse quotes by Francis A. Schaeffer
#101. There is no New Testament basis for a linking of church and state until Christ, the King returns. The whole "Constantine mentality" from the fourth century up to our day was a mistake. Constantine, as the Roman Emperor, in 313 ended the persecution of Christians. Unfortunately, the support he gave to the church led by 381 to the enforcing of Christianity, by Theodosius I, as the official state religion. Making Christianity the official state religion opened the way for confusion up till our own day. There have been times of very good government when this interrelationship of church and state has been present. But through the centuries it has caused great confusion between loyalty to the state and loyalty to Christ, between patriotism and being a Christian.
We must not confuse the Kingdom of God with our country. To say it another way: "We should not wrap our Christianity in our national flag. #Quote by Francis A. Schaeffer
Confuse quotes by Jonathan Auxier
#102. Don't confuse what you do with who you are... #Quote by Jonathan Auxier
Confuse quotes by Oli Anderson
#103. Our modern day, hyper-rat-race culture often leads us to mistakenly confuse
'busy' for 'success'. The truth of the matter is that if you're constantly having to tell people how busy you are and how overwhelmed with work or stressed you are, what you're really telling them is that you can't cope with what's on your plate. You're 'failing'. #Quote by Oli Anderson

Confuse quotes by Jonathan Miller
#105. I was just rather fascinated by certain what seemed to me insoluble paradoxes about reflection, about what it was like to look in one direction and see in another. I was struck by the strange capability we have to look through the front window of a motor car and at the same time look through the driving mirror and not to confuse the view that one saw inside one frame with the view that surrounded it in another frame. #Quote by Jonathan Miller

Confuse quotes by Todd D. Boddy
#107. I don't share your luxury. I believe in karma. I make karma happen. I rain down karma on my enemies."

Confuse quotes by David Levithan
#108. You see, Dash
I was never the girl in your head. And you were never the boy in my head. I think we both knew that. It's only when we try to make the girl or boy in our head real that the true trouble comes. I did that with Carlos, and it was a bad failure. Be careful what you're doing, because no one is ever who you want them to be. And the less you really know them, the more likely you are to confuse them with the girl or boy in your head. #Quote by David Levithan
Confuse quotes by Shauna Niequist
#109. If you dig in and fight the changes, they will smash you to bits. They'll hold you under, drag you across the rough sand, scare and confuse you. But if you can find it within yourself, in the wildest of seasons, just for moment, to trust in the goodness of God, who made it all and holds it all together, you'll find yourself drawn along to a whole new place, and there's truly nothing sweeter. Unclench your fists, unlock your knees and also the door to your heart, take a deep breath, and begin to swim. #Quote by Shauna Niequist
Confuse quotes by Grant Morrison
#110. Only a bitter little adolescent boy could confuse realism with pessimism. #Quote by Grant Morrison
Confuse quotes by Dave McKean

Confuse quotes by Dalai Lama
#113. When we speak of a calm state of mind or peace of mind, we shouldn't confuse that with an insensitive state of apathy. Having a calm or peaceful state of mind doesn't mean being spaced out or completely empty. Peace of mind or a calm state of mind is rooted in affection and compassion and is sensitive and responsive to others. #Quote by Dalai Lama

Confuse quotes by Ruth Stone
#116. If I heard a girl crying help
I would go to save her;
But you hardly ever hear those words.
Dear children, you must try to say
Something when you are in need.
Don't confuse hunger with greed;
And don't wait until you are dead. #Quote by Ruth Stone
Confuse quotes by John Irving
#117. Never confuse faith, or belief - of any kind - with something even remotely intellectual. #Quote by John Irving

#118. Most people confuse wishing and wanting with pursuing. You must place your trust in action. #Quote by Price Pritchett
Confuse quotes by Bill Murray
#119. People confuse friendship and relaxation. It's incredibly important to be relaxed - you don't have a chance if you're not relaxed. So I try very hard to relax any kind of tension. But friendship is different. #Quote by Bill Murray
Confuse quotes by Bob Goff
#120. It's easy to confuse a lot of activity with a purposeful life. Do what lasts; let the rest fall away. #Quote by Bob Goff
Confuse quotes by John F. MacArthur Jr.
#121. When programs, methods, and money produce impressive results, there is an inclination to confuse human success with divine blessing. Christians can actually behave like practical humanists, living as if God were not necessary. When that happens, passionate longing for God and yearning for His help will be missing - along with His empowerment. #Quote by John F. MacArthur Jr.
Confuse quotes by Brennan Manning
#122. And Grace calls out, 'You are not just a disillusioned old man who may die soon, a middle-aged woman stuck in a job and desperately wanting to get out, a young person feeling the fire in the belly begin to grow cold. You may be insecure, inadequate, mistaken or potbellied. Death, panic, depression, and disillusionment may be near you. But you are not just that. You are accepted.' Never confuse your perception of yourself with the mystery that you really are accepted. #Quote by Brennan Manning
Confuse quotes by Cornel West
#123. You have to have a habitual vision of greatness ... you have to believe in fact that you will refuse to settle for mediocrity. You won't confuse your financial security with your personal integrity, you won't confuse your success with your greatness or your prosperity with your magnanimity ... believe in fact that living is connected to giving. #Quote by Cornel West
Confuse quotes by Hollis Gillespie
#124. But things never go according to plan. In fact, I think if you're really attached to controlling your future, you should plan for the opposite of what you want just to confuse the cosmic comedians whose sole job is to figure out what you think your future should hold so they can preclude it from ever happening. #Quote by Hollis Gillespie
Confuse quotes by William Bernbach
#125. Forget words like 'hard sell' and 'soft sell.' That will only confuse you. Just be sure your advertising is saying something with substance, something that will inform and serve the consumer, and be sure you're saying it like it's never been said before. #Quote by William Bernbach
Confuse quotes by Alan W. Watts
#126. Civilization, comprising all the achievements of art and science, technology and industry, is the result of man's invention and manipulation of symbols - of words, letters, numbers, formulas and concepts, and of such social institutions as universally accepted clocks and rulers, scales and timetables, schedules and laws. By these means, we measure, predict, and control the behavior of the human and natural worlds - and with such startling apparent success that the trick goes to our heads. All too easily, we confuse the world as we symbolize it with the world as it is. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Confuse quotes by Vera Nazarian
#127. Since the dawn of existence, you mortals have feared dying, feared the unknown and the pain of it, and yet, pain is a part of life, not death. And I - I am the first moment after pain ceases," he [Death] pronounced. "It is life that fights and struggles and rages; life, that tears at you in its last agonizing throes to hold on, even if but for one futile instant longer ... Whereas I, I come softly when it is all done. Pain and death are an ordered sequence, not a parallel pair. So easy to confuse the correlations, not realizing that one does not bring the other. #Quote by Vera Nazarian
Confuse quotes by Luciano Pavarotti
#128. If you see me once, you cannot confuse me with another. #Quote by Luciano Pavarotti
Confuse quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#129. You will not grow through guilt, but only shrivel and die. Awareness is what you seek. But awareness is not guilt, and love is not fear. Fear and guilt, I say again, are your only enemies. Love and awareness are your true friends. Yet do not confuse the one with the other, for one will kill you, while the other gives you life. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Confuse quotes by Susan Cain
#130. Nor are introverts necessarily shy. Shyness is the fear of social disapproval or humiliation, while introversion is a preference for environments that are not overstimulating. Shyness is inherently painful; introversion is not. One reason that people confuse the two concepts is that they sometimes overlap (though psychologists debate to what degree). Some psychologists map the two tendencies on vertical and horizontal axes, with the introvert-extrovert spectrum on the horizontal axis, and the anxious-stable spectrum on the vertical. With this model, you end up with four quadrants of personality types: calm extroverts, anxious (or impulsive) extroverts, calm introverts, and anxious introverts. In other words, you can be a shy extrovert, like Barbra Streisand, who has a larger-than-life personality and paralyzing stage fright; or a non-shy introvert, like Bill Gates, who by all accounts keeps to himself but is unfazed by the opinions of others. #Quote by Susan Cain
Confuse quotes by Lena Matthews
#131. I love you, Kayla Martin. I want to spend the rest of my life wondering what will happen when I turn on the microwave. I want to explain the X-files to you in bed every night and replace cabinet doors that are dented from your feet.....I want to go to sleep at night knowing that you're puttering around in the other room inventing something that will baffle and confuse me. #Quote by Lena Matthews
Confuse quotes by Richard P. Feynman
#132. Never confuse education with intelligence, you can have a PhD and still be an idiot. #Quote by Richard P. Feynman
Confuse quotes by R.F. Georgy
#133. We believe that information is an enlightening agent, but I can assure you it is not. We consume information, but we can't read. We forgot how to sit down and engage the dense layers of a text. We are so busy devouring information that we forgot how to dance with ideas. We confuse linguistic bits of data for knowledge and ideas. I can assure you, gentlemen, they are not the same. Ideas require effort and the kind of sensibility that engages the subtle layers of meaning. What the hell does information require? #Quote by R.F. Georgy
Confuse quotes by John Brunner
#134. It's not because my mind is made up that I don't want you to confuse me with any more facts. It's because my mind isn't made up. I already have more facts than I can cope with. So SHUT UP, do you hear me? SHUT UP! #Quote by John Brunner
Confuse quotes by Steven Erikson
#135. All things considered, science is the best means of understanding almost everything around us. It works well on the human scale and stands as a stark counter-point to beliefs that by their very nature refute the notion of evidence. And I would be the last person to attack people encouraging the rest of us to use our ability to be rational, thereby defending the value and the necessity of science. But I will lift a querying hand when the notion of 'science' is held to be immutable, because 'science' as such does not exist. Science is a process to be sure, a way of thinking, but what science is above all is that which scientists do, and alas, scientists are people, too. As potentially fallible, irrational, biased, greedy, in short, as flawed, as the rest of us. So, by all means defend science as a process. But don't confuse it with the very human endeavor of science as a profession. Because they're not the same thing. And this is why when some guy in a white lab-coat says 'you can trust me, I'm a scientist,' best take it with a big bucket of salt, and then say 'Fine, now show me the evidence and more to the point, show me how you got to it. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Confuse quotes by Gayle Forman
#136. But at first I was so confused. I didn't even know what was happening, only that I was feeling better without you and how could I explain that to you? #Quote by Gayle Forman
Confuse quotes by Jack Dancer
#137. I'm a man. Why would you expect anything else? We're meant to be easy and predictable. You are woman. You possess what we seek. We cannot afford to confuse your minds if we are to attain what we seek. Therefore, we elect to be easy and predictable. #Quote by Jack Dancer

Confuse quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#139. Sometimes, the wicked will tell us things just to confuse us - to haunt our thoughts long after we face them. He would be delighted to know you're still fretting over whatever nonsense he said...Don't give him the satisfaction of knowing that he's still troubling you; put those thoughts from your mind #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Confuse quotes by Michael Austin
#140. Small acts of persuasion matter, because there is much less distance between people's beliefs than we often suppose. We easily confuse the distance between people's political positions with the intensity of their convictions about them. It is entirely possible for people to become sharply divided, even hostile, , over relatively minor disagreements. Americans have fought epic political battles over things like baking wedding cakes and kneeling during the national anthem. And we once fought a shooting war over a whiskey tax of ten cents per gallon. The ferocity of these battles has nothing to do with the actual distance between different positions, which, when compared to the entire range of opinions possible in the world, is almost negligible.

None of this means that we can persuade our opponents easily. Persuading people to change their minds is excruciatingly difficult. It doesn't always work, and it rarely works the way we think it will. But it does work, and the fact that it works makes it possible for us to have a democracy. #Quote by Michael Austin

Confuse quotes by Cookie O'Gorman
#143. You smart girls are always the last to figure these things out. Why would a guy like me ask you out if all I wanted was friendship? You may be cute, but you're not too observant." "Huh?" I said again. I understood the words coming out of his mouth, but the meaning behind them was a mystery. It was like he was intentionally trying to confuse me. Leaning #Quote by Cookie O'Gorman
Confuse quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#144. Even in the realm of pure mathematics, the mathematician may use any set of symbols he desires within any given region of space-time; he may even go so far as to maintain that any one set of symbols fits the scheme as well as any other, but to erect this method into a philosophy and confuse independence of any one special meaning with independence of all meaning is unjustified and unwarranted. #Quote by Fulton J. Sheen

Confuse quotes by Nicole Quinn
#146. When breeders are sluts for enjoying the act, and in pain, while the males are made heroic for all such conquests, we achieve detente in the war between the genders. Confuse, conquer, and control, my son. This rape culture, coupled with the holy trinity of blame, shame and guilt, makes for a yeasty culture of manipulation. #Quote by Nicole Quinn

#148. There are many kinds of leaders. Too often we confuse a forceful personality with leadership. This is a mistake. Those with different talents and styles can reach the same mountaintop; they just take different paths to get there. #Quote by Henry H. Neff
Confuse quotes by Yehuda Amichai
#149. A man doesn't have time in his life
to have time for everything.
He doesn't have seasons enough to have
a season for every purpose. Ecclesiastes
Was wrong about that.

A man needs to love and to hate at the same moment,
to laugh and cry with the same eyes,
with the same hands to throw stones and to gather them,
to make love in war and war in love.
And to hate and forgive and remember and forget,
to arrange and confuse, to eat and to digest
what history
takes years and years to do.

A man doesn't have time.
When he loses he seeks, when he finds
he forgets, when he forgets he loves, when he loves
he begins to forget.

And his soul is seasoned, his soul
is very professional.
Only his body remains forever
an amateur. It tries and it misses,
gets muddled, doesn't learn a thing,
drunk and blind in its pleasures
and its pains.

He will die as figs die in autumn,
Shriveled and full of himself and sweet,
the leaves growing dry on the ground,
the bare branches pointing to the place
where there's time for everything.
#Quote by Yehuda Amichai

Confuse quotes by Timothy Ferriss
#154. It's very easy to confuse confident motion with being productive - and they're not the same thing. Productive to me means measurable outcomes that apply to my most important to-dos that positively affect my life. That's it. #Quote by Timothy Ferriss
Confuse quotes by Carl Sagan
#155. One of the reasons for its success is that science has a built-in, error-correcting machinery at its very heart. Some may consider this an overbroad characterization, but to me every time we exercise self-criticism, every time we test our ideas against the outside world, we are doing science. When we are self-indulgent and uncritical, when we confuse hopes and facts, we slide into pseudoscience and superstition. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Confuse quotes by Lauren Oliver
#156. Would you like to?" he says. His voice is hardly audible above the wind
so low it's barely a whisper.
"Would I like to what?" My heart is roaring, rushing in my ears, and though
there are still several inches between his hand and mine, there's a zipping,
humming energy that connects us, and from the heat flooding my body you
would think we were pressed together, palm to palm, face to face.
"Dance," he says, at the same time closing those last few inches and finding
my hand and pulling me closer, and at that second the song hits a high note and I
confuse the two impressions, of his hand and the soaring, the lifting of the music.
We dance. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Confuse quotes by Aleksandar Hemon
#157. I actually didn't listen to the Beatles song 'Nowhere Man' when I was writing my book of the same name. What I listened to a lot was 'Abbey Road.' Its disjointedness and its readiness to confuse only to delight were inspiring to me. #Quote by Aleksandar Hemon
Confuse quotes by Eliza Crewe
#158. Don't confuse your desperate need to know everything with a regular human's mere curiosity. #Quote by Eliza Crewe
Confuse quotes by Dean Koontz
#159. Yet the human heart is disheartened by the most unreasonable self-judgments, because even when we take on giants, we too often confuse failure with fault, which I know too well. The only way back from such a bleak despondency is to shape humiliation into humility, to strive always to triumph over the darkness while never forgetting that the honor and the beauty are more in the striving than in the winning. When triumph at last comes, our efforts alone could not have won the day without that grace which surpasses all understanding and which will, if we allow it, imbue our lives with meaning. In the learning of that simple #Quote by Dean Koontz
Confuse quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
#160. Do not confuse objectives with methods. When the nation becomes substantially united in favor of planning the broad objectives of civilization, then true leadership must unite thought behind definite methods. #Quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt
Confuse quotes by Isabel Allende
#161. She tried to understand what it meant to carry winter on your back, to hesitate over every step, to confuse words you don't hear properly, to have the impression that the rest of the world is going about in a great rush; the emptiness, frailty, fatigue, and indifference toward everything not directly related to you, even children and grandchildren, whose absence was not felt as it once had been, and whose names you had to struggle to remember. #Quote by Isabel Allende

#162. We must not confuse the disease to please with the command to love. #Quote by Lysa TerKeurst
Confuse quotes by C.S. Lewis
#163. It is so fatally easy to confuse an aesthetic appreciation of the spiritual life with the life itself-to dream that you have waked, washed, and dressed and then to find yourself still in bed. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Confuse quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#164. All too often people confuse religion with superstition, spirituality, belief in supernatural powers or belief in gods. Religion is none of these things. Religion cannot be equated with superstition, because most people are unlikely to call their most cherished beliefs 'superstitions'. We always believe in 'the truth'; only other people believe in superstitions. Similarly, few people put their faith in supernatural powers. For those who believe in demons, spirits and fairies, these beings are not supernatural. They are an integral part of nature, just like porcupines, scorpions and germs. Modern physicians blame disease on invisible germs, and voodoo priests blame disease on invisible spirits. There's nothing supernatural about it: if you make some spirit angry, the spirit enters your body and causes you pain. What could be more natural than that? Only those who don't believe in spirits think of them as standing apart from the natural order of things. #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari

Confuse quotes by Alan Moore
#167. The real curriculum is punctuality, obedience and the acceptance of monotony, those skills we shall require later in life. Oblique aversion therapy to cure us of our thirst for information, and condition us so that thereafter we forge an association between indolence and pleasure. We confuse rebellion with a hairstyle #Quote by Alan Moore
Confuse quotes by Thomas Mann
#168. It is most certainly a good thing that the world knows only the beautiful opus but not its origins, not the conditions of its creation; for if people knew the sources of the artist's inspiration, that knowledge would often confuse them, alarm them, and thereby destroy the effects of excellence. strange hours! strangely enervating labor! bizarrely fertile intercourse of the mind with a body! #Quote by Thomas Mann
Confuse quotes by Abraham H. Maslow
#169. Self-actualized people ... live more in the real world of nature than in the man-made mass of concepts, abstractions, expectations, beliefs and stereotypes that most people confuse with the world. #Quote by Abraham H. Maslow
Confuse quotes by Naira Kuzmich
#170. We can be white if we never speak. If we never write our names. If we never voice the things that confuse and hurt us. When we open our fists, the whites of our palms reveal nothing but this: we were not handed privilege. #Quote by Naira Kuzmich

Confuse quotes by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
#173. We sometimes confuse sin with sinner, and we condemn too quickly and with too little compassion. We know from modern revelation that 'the worth of souls is great in the sight of God.' We cannot gauge the worth of another soul any more than we can measure the span of the universe. #Quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf

#174. (Dennis says) "Hey, you're playing confuse-the-unbeliever again. I have never been able to get a straight answer on whether you guys have two deities or dozens, taken from any pantheon you feel like mugging in a theological dark alley. Which is it? Number one or number two?"

"Yes," Juniper said, with all the other coven members joining in to make a ragged chorus... #Quote by S.M. Stirling
Confuse quotes by Jarod Kintz
#175. She didn't say it, I only thought she said it. So really it was my thought, my words, and not hers. How could I confuse "I love you" with "May I take your order? #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Confuse quotes by Demetri Martin
#176. I am a comedian but it's usually not a compliment to be called a prop comedian but I guess I sometimes use props. And I always confuse humorist with comedian. That's strange. #Quote by Demetri Martin
Confuse quotes by Amy Bloom
#177. And I surely cannot tell him that I'm no more good for me or for him than I ever was, that I will disappoint and confuse him, that I've been alone my whole life, and that it may really be too hard and too late, not even desirable, after such long, familiar cold, to be known, and heard, and seen. #Quote by Amy Bloom
Confuse quotes by Plato
#178. I'm trying to think, don't confuse me with facts. #Quote by Plato
Confuse quotes by Sam Harris
#179. Worrying about inciting racial hatred in cartoons is legitimate, so that no group is racially targeted. It is why we don't like anti-Semitic cartoons. This is entirely distinct from a "blasphemy" motivation for censorship, which aims to silence scrutiny of a powerful idea and its founder, inspiring to billions. We must not confuse these two different concerns. This is the core of what most of us, especially Muslims, must reflect on in the wake of the tragedy in France. #Quote by Sam Harris
Confuse quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#180. Abstractions about right and wrong, whether they are as old as Thou Shalt Not Kill or as modern as Do Your Own Thing, often serve only to confuse and weaken genuine moral decision. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Confuse quotes by William Peter Blatty
#181. The demon is a liar. He will lie to confuse us; but he will also mix lies with the truth to attack us. His attack is psychological, Damien. And powerful. #Quote by William Peter Blatty
Confuse quotes by Pablo Neruda
#182. This means that we have barely disembarked into life, that we've only just now been born, let's not fill our mouths with so many uncertain names, with so many sad labels, with so many pompous letters, with so much yours and mine, with so much signing of papers. I intend to confuse things, to unite them, make them new-born intermingle them, undress them, until the light of the world has the unity of the ocean, a generous wholeness, a fragrance alive and crackling. #Quote by Pablo Neruda
Confuse quotes by Jimmy Carter
#183. We are a purely idealistic Nation but let no one confuse our idealism with weakness #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Confuse quotes by William Gibson
#184. When we were only several hundred-thousand years old, we built stone circles, water clocks. Later, someone forged an iron spring, set clockwork running, imagined grid-lines on a globe. Cathedrals are like machines defining the soul; bells of clock towers stitch the sleeper's dreams together. You see? So we've always been on our way to this new place ― that is no place, really ― but is real. It's our nature to represent: we're the animal that represents, the sole and only maker of maps. And if our weakness has been to confuse the bright and bloody colors of our calendars with the true weather of days, and the parchment's territory of our maps with the lands spread out before us ― never mind. We've always been on our way to this new place ― that is no place, really ― but is real. #Quote by William Gibson
Confuse quotes by Akif Kichloo
#185. So often we confuse mistakes for soul mates, lessons for
lovers, and at the same time worthy life partners for one-night stands.

It's an epidemic. #Quote by Akif Kichloo
Confuse quotes by Jon Krakauer
#186. One of the differences between us was that Marc wanted very badly to climb the Eiger, while I wanted very badly only to have climbed the Eiger. Marc, understand, is at that age when the pituitary secretes an overabundance of those hormones that mask the subtler emotions, such as fear. He tends to confuse things like life-or-death climbing with fun. #Quote by Jon Krakauer
Confuse quotes by Wiz Khalifa
#187. I never want to confuse people or go over their heads. #Quote by Wiz Khalifa
Confuse quotes by Erich Fromm
#188. Among the many forms of alienation, the most frequent one is alienation in language. If I express a feeling with a word, let us say, if I say "I love you," the word is meant to be an indication of the reality which exists within myself, the power of my loving. The word "love" is meant to be a symbol of the fact love, but as soon as it is spoken it tends to assume a life of its own, it becomes a reality. I am under the illusion that the saying of the word is the equivalent of the experience, and soon I say the word and feel nothing, except the thought of love which the word expresses. The alienation of language shows the whole complexity of alienation. Language is one of the most precious human achievements; to avoid alienation by not speaking would be foolish -- yet one must be always aware of the danger of the spoken word, that it threatens to substitute itself for the living experience. The same holds true for all other achievements of man; ideas, art, any kind of man-made objects. They are man's creations; they are valuable aids for life, yet each one of them is also a trap, a temptation to confuse life with things, experience with artifacts, feeling with surrender and submission. #Quote by Erich Fromm
Confuse quotes by Kate Willis
#189. That morning all of us girls had put our hair in high vintage-like ponytails, and Aunt Julie joked that we could almost be triplets. I laughed but knew that since my hair was so straight no one would ever confuse Rose and I. #Quote by Kate Willis
Confuse quotes by George Galloway
#190. Christianity doesn't come into it. George Bush and Tony Blair are not Christians. Religious people believe in the prophets, peace be upon them. Bush believes in the profits and how to get a piece of them. So don't ever confuse this with a war of civilizations. #Quote by George Galloway
Confuse quotes by John Howard Griffin
#191. We fill too many gutters while we argue unimportant points and confuse issues. #Quote by John Howard Griffin
Confuse quotes by Marty Rubin
#192. Women, beware you don't confuse romance with love. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Confuse quotes by Tom Robbins
#193. Not too many years ago, the names of our perfumes bore testimony to such things. There was a popular scent called Tabu, there was Sorcery, My Sin, Vampire, Voodoo, Evening in Paris, Jungle Gardenia, Bandit, Shocking, Intimate, Love Potion, and L'Heure Bleue - The Blue Hour. Nowadays what do we find? Vanderbilt, Miss Dior, Lauren, and Armani, perfumes named after glorified tailors" - there were murmurs and gasps in the audience - "names that evoke not the poetic, the erotic, the magic, but economic status, social snobbery, and the egomania of designers. Perfumes that confuse the essence of creation with the essence of money. How much sustenance can the soul receive from a scent entitled Bill Blass? #Quote by Tom Robbins
Confuse quotes by Wynton Marsalis
#194. We started to confuse entertainment with art, because art has a component of entertainment. It has to have that or it becomes too boring. It becomes too lost in its own devices. But I just think that we started to lose, and even before that, it's not necessary. #Quote by Wynton Marsalis
Confuse quotes by Edna Robinson
#195. The first thing one must want, in order to gain anything, is to be himself gaining. Don't confuse sterile wishing with true wanting. #Quote by Edna Robinson
Confuse quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#196. Life sometimes confuses us by making us discover in someone we hate a quality or qualities we love. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Confuse quotes by Anonymous
#197. Do not confuse reasons which sound good with good, sound reasons. #Quote by Anonymous
Confuse quotes by Jaron Lanier
#198. There are at least two ways to believe in the idea of quality. You can believe there's something ineffable going on within the human mind, or you can believe we just don't understand what quality in a mind is yet, even though we might someday. Either of those opinions allows one to distinguish quantity and quality. In order to confuse quantity and quality, you have to reject both possibilities. The mere possibility of there being something ineffable about personhood is what drives many technologists to reject the notion of quality. They want to live in an airtight reality that resembles an idealized computer program, in which everything is understood and there are no fundamental mysteries. They recoil from even the hint of a potential zone of mystery or an unresolved seam in one's worldview. This desire for absolute order usually leads to tears in human affairs, so there is a historical reason to distrust it. Materialist extremists have long seemed determined to win a race with religious fanatics: Who can do the most damage to the most people? #Quote by Jaron Lanier
Confuse quotes by Georgia Cates
#199. This man will be hazardous for my heart if I allow it. He'll use me up if I let him. I know this without a doubt and remind myself of a lesson well learned not so long ago. Never confuse sex for love. #Quote by Georgia Cates
Confuse quotes by Rick Warren
#200. The first misconception is that we confuse fear with humility. We tend to say, "Oh, I could never do that," and we think we're being humble. But that is not humility. That is fear; that is a lack of faith. A truly humble person would say, "With God's help, I can do it. With God's blessing, I will do it. I may not be able to do it on my own, but with God's help I will do it." That's real humility. #Quote by Rick Warren
