Connections quotes by Anna Kamienska
#1. I've learned to value failed conversations, missed connections, confusions. What remains is what's unsaid, what's underneath. Understanding on another level of being. #Quote by Anna Kamienska
Connections quotes by David Ricardo
#2. But it is clear that the price of labour has no necessary connection with the price of food, since it depends entirely on the supply of labourers compared with the demand. #Quote by David Ricardo
Connections quotes by Karen Kingsbury
#3. Life is too short for half-hearted connections and meaningless run-throughs. #Quote by Karen Kingsbury
Connections quotes by William, Saroyan

Connections quotes by Katherine Paterson
#5. Peace is not won by those who fiercely guard their differences, but by those who with open minds and hearts seek out connections. #Quote by Katherine Paterson
Connections quotes by Joan Biskupic
#6. During Scalia's confirmation hearing, so many senators brought up Italian connections that Senator Howell Heflin, a Democrat from Alabama, told the nominee, 'I believe that almost every Senator that has an Italian American connection has come forward to welcome you...I would be remiss if I did not mention the fact that my great-great-grandfather married a widow who was married first to an Italian American." Getting Heflin's joke, Scalia shot back, 'Senator, I have been to Alabama several times, too. #Quote by Joan Biskupic
Connections quotes by Amy Bloom
#7. Boundaries are the lines we draw that mark off our autonomy and that of other people, that protect our privacy and that of others. Boundaries allow for intimate connection without dissolving or losing one's sense of self. #Quote by Amy Bloom
Connections quotes by Susannah Cahalan
#8. Our minds have the incredible capacity to both alter the strength of connections among neurons, essentially rewiring them, and create entirely new pathways. (It makes a computer, which cannot create new hardware when its system crashes, seem fixed and helpless). #Quote by Susannah Cahalan
Connections quotes by Mark Whitwell
#9. When you seek a connection to God, you suffer. God is not absent. #Quote by Mark Whitwell
Connections quotes by Howard Schultz
#10. There is a word that comes to my mind when I think about our company and our people. That word is 'love.' I love Starbucks because everything we've tried to do is steeped in humanity.
Respect and dignity.
Passion and laughter.
Compassion, community, and responsibility.
These are Starbucks' touchstones, the source of our pride.
Valuing personal connections at a time when so many people sit alone in front of screens; aspiring to build human relationships in an age when so many issues polarize so many; and acting ethically, even if it costs more, when corners are routinely cut
these are honorable pursuits, at the core of what we set out to be. #Quote by Howard Schultz
Connections quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#11. Secondly," he went on, "a Chief Magistrate is about as far beneath a marquess's daughter as a tree is beneath the moon."
A mutinous look crossed his aunt's face. "Sir Richard started out as a saddler's apprentice. He got himself a knighthood partly because he married a wife with good connections."
"A wealthy baker's daughter. That's a far cry from a lady of rank."
"That doesn't mean it can't happen. You're a fine man, a handsome man, if I do say so myself. You're young and strong, with a good education and gentlemanly manners-better manners than Sir Richard, anyway. And now that you own this house-"
"She lives in a mansion!" Snatching his arm free, he rose. "Do you really think she'd be happy here in Cheapside, with the butchers and merchants and tradesmen?"
Her aunt looked wounded. "I thought you liked this neighborhood."
Damn. "I do, but..." There was nothing for it but to tell her the truth. "She can't stand me, all right? I'd be the last person on earth she'd want to marry." Snatching up the report, he headed for the door. "I have to go."
"What?" he barked.
"If that's true, she's a fool."
Lady Celia was no fool. She simply knew better than to take up with a man who didn't know the identity of his own father. He managed a curt nod. "I'll see you tonight, Aunt."
As he left the house, an age-old anger weighed him down. He wouldn't hurt Aunt Ada for the world, but she didn't understand. Ever since he'd started #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries
Connections quotes by J.T. Geissinger
#12. One of the first shrinks I went to after Cass died told me that the brain has a hardwired need to find correlations, to make sense of nonsensical data by making connections between unrelated things. Humans have evolved a universal tendency to seek patterns in random information, hence the existence of fortune-tellers and dream interpreters and people who see the face of Jesus in a piece of toast. But the cold, hard truth is that there are no connections between anything. Life - all of existence - is totally random. Your lucky lottery numbers aren't really lucky, because there's no such thing as luck. The black cat that crosses your path isn't a bad omen, it's just a cat out for a walk. An eclipse doesn't mean that the gods are angry, just as a bus narrowly missing you as you cross the street doesn't mean there's a guardian angel looking out for you. There are no gods. There are no angels. Superstitions aren't real, and no amount of wishing, praying, or rationalizing can change the fact that life is just one long sequence of random events that ultimately have no meaning. I really hated that shrink. #Quote by J.T. Geissinger
Connections quotes by Ellen Kaplan
#13. A Puritan twist in our nature makes us think that anything good for us must be twice as good if it's hard to swallow. Learning Greek and Latin used to play the role of character builder, since they were considered to be as exhausting and unrewarding as digging a trench in the morning and filling it up in the afternoon. It was what made a man, or a woman -- or more likely a robot -- of you. Now math serves that purpose in many schools: your task is to try to follow rules that make sense, perhaps, to some higher beings; and in the end to accept your failure with humbled pride. As you limp off with your aching mind and bruised soul, you know that nothing in later life will ever be as difficult.

What a perverse fate for one of our kind's greatest triumphs! Think how absurd it would be were music treated this way (for math and music are both excursions into sensuous structure): suffer through playing your scales, and when you're an adult you'll never have to listen to music again. And this is mathematics we're talking about, the language in which, Galileo said, the Book of the World is written. This is mathematics, which reaches down into our deepest intuitions and outward toward the nature of the universe -- mathematics, which explains the atoms as well as the stars in their courses, and lets us see into the ways that rivers and arteries branch. For mathematics itself is the study of connections: how things ideally must and, in fact, do sort together -- beyond, around, #Quote by Ellen Kaplan
Connections quotes by Jim C. Walton
#14. There is critical mass with high-speed Internet connections, so video is a good user experience. And that means there can be critical mass for advertisers. #Quote by Jim C. Walton
Connections quotes by Anna Wiener
#15. Sometimes I would worry about my internet habits and force myself awy from the computer, to read a magazine or book. Contemporary literature offered no respite: I would find the prose cluttered with data points, tenuous historical connections, detail so finely tuned it could have only been extracted from a feverish night of search-engine queries. Aphorisms were in; authors were wired. I would pick up books that had been heavily documented on social media, only to find that the books themselves had a curatorial affect: beautiful descriptions of little substance, arranged in elegant vignettes - gestural text, the equivalent of a rumpled linen bedsheet or a bunch of dahlias placed just so. Oh, I would think, turning the page. This author is addicted to the internet, too. #Quote by Anna Wiener
Connections quotes by Harry Shearer
#16. I didn't have a lot of independent film connections. It really took until the digital film revolution came along that I realized that I could do it myself. #Quote by Harry Shearer
Connections quotes by Aly Martinez
#17. I'm gonna put a hit out on her!
Okay, hold on there, Tony Soprano.
No one's putting a hit on anyone. I paused.
Just to be clear, you don't have those kind of connections, right?
No, but I have money! I'm sure I can buy some connections,
she answered in all seriousness. #Quote by Aly Martinez
Connections quotes by Jakob Nielsen
#18. Diversity is power on the Web. Big sites may be bigger, but smaller sites will keep scoring higher for specialized topics, both in terms of their connections with users and in terms of each visit's commercial value. #Quote by Jakob Nielsen
Connections quotes by Daniel Kehlmann
#19. One of the points where the art world is at its most metaphysical is in this weird aspect of the power of the expert. There are experts who claim they cannot be fooled because they have an inner connection to an artist and can feel whether something is genuine or fake. I've heard experts say, on panels: When it comes to my period, or my painters, I cannot be fooled. And of course that's completely ridiculous. #Quote by Daniel Kehlmann
Connections quotes by Benjamin Graham
#20. There is a close logical connection between the concept of a safety margin and the principle of diversification. #Quote by Benjamin Graham
Connections quotes by Clive Barker
#21. The question that lay before me, and I had so far failed to answer, was the way these connections might best be expressed. My mind was filled with possibilities but I had no real sense of how all that I knew was arrayed and dispersed; no sense of the pattern. #Quote by Clive Barker
Connections quotes by Geoff Ryman
#22. William has learned in his bones that survival takes the form of other people. They must know you, and for that to happen you must know them. Speak with them, charm them, and remember them. #Quote by Geoff Ryman
Connections quotes by Forest Whitaker
#23. I can play a man who's despicable. But I'll still look inside him to find a point of connection. If I can find that kernel, audiences will relate to me. #Quote by Forest Whitaker
Connections quotes by Marilyn Manson
#24. In music, you feel a connection to the voice and think about the person behind it. In art that's secondary. #Quote by Marilyn Manson
Connections quotes by Abdallah II Of Jordan
#25. Many occasions I've sat down with Israelis to say, where do you see your country in 10 years time, and work me back, so we can figure out the synergies and the connections between Israel and the rest of the Arab world. No Israeli has ever been able to answer that question. #Quote by Abdallah II Of Jordan
Connections quotes by Bill Jensen
#26. Future strong builds actions upon reflection,
questions, curiosity, seeking to understand root causes and systemic connections. #Quote by Bill Jensen
Connections quotes by Aurora Levins Morales
#27. Ownership shatters ecology. For the land to survive, for us to survive, it must cease to be property. It cannot continue to sustain us for much longer under the weight of such merciless use. We know this. We know the insatiable hunger for profit that drives that use and the dismpowerment that accommodates us. We don't yet know how to make it stop.

But where ecology meets culture there is another question. How do we hold in common not only the land, but all the fragile, tenacious rootedness of human beings to the ground of our histories, teh cultural residues of our daily work, the invidual and tribal longings for place? How do we abolish ownership of land and respect people's ties to it? How do we shift the weight of our times from the single-minded nationalist drive for a piece of territory and the increasingly barricaded self-interest of even the marginally privileged towards a rich and multilayered sense of collective heritage? I don't have the answer. But I know that only when we can hold each people's particular memories and connections with land as a common treasure can the knowledge of our place on it be restored. #Quote by Aurora Levins Morales
Connections quotes by Dan Brown
#28. Coincidence was a concept he did not entirely trust. As someone who had spent his life exploring the hidden interconnectivity of disparate emblems and ideologies, Langdon viewed the world as a web of profoundly intertwined histories and events. The connections may be invisible, he often preached to his symbology classes at Harvard, but they are always there, buried just beneath the surface. #Quote by Dan Brown
Connections quotes by Ally Broadfield
#29. You are making this fuss because I did not issue a proper proposal?
Very well." He began to kneel and she grasped a fistful of his hair
and yanked him back to a standing position.

He yelped and rubbed his head. "Even you cannot deny that your
background and family connections are less than desirable, yet I am
still willing to do the honorable thing and marry you. #Quote by Ally Broadfield
Connections quotes by Maryanne Wolf
#30. There are few more powerful mirrors of the human brain's astonishing ability to rearrange itself to learn a new intellectual function than the act of reading. Underlying the brain's ability to learn reading lies its protean capacity to make new connections among structures and circuits originally devoted to other more basic brain processes that have enjoyed a longer existence in human evolution, such as vision and spoken language. [...] we come into the world programmed with the capacity to change what is given to us by nature, so that we can go beyond it. We are, it would seem from the start, genetically poised for breakthroughs. #Quote by Maryanne Wolf
Connections quotes by Yo-Yo Ma
#31. Practicing is not only playing your instrument, either by yourself or rehearsing with others - it also includes imagining yourself practicing. Your brain forms the same neural connections and muscle memory whether you are imagining the task or actually doing it. #Quote by Yo-Yo Ma
Connections quotes by Cat Power
#32. Hip-hop and R&B is mostly what I listen to. I don't have a connection with punk rock - I just never had that experience. #Quote by Cat Power
Connections quotes by Allan Sloan
#33. I've spent my career trying to help people without connections understand what's going on so that they have a chance of getting a fair shake from the connected and the powerful. #Quote by Allan Sloan
Connections quotes by Nicolas Winding Refn
#34. Film works when a director and a star have a connection. You know, when there's something telekinetic between them, there's a partnership, it's like alter egos. It's like James Stewart and Alfred Hitchcock, or Fellini and Mastroianni. I'm not comparing, I'm just saying, if you can come into a relationship where the director and star have such a bond, it's so much easier to make a movie. #Quote by Nicolas Winding Refn
Connections quotes by Michael Shermer
#35. Mind is just a word we use to describe neural activity in the brain. No brain, no mind. We know this because if a part of the brain is destroyed through stroke or cancer or injury or surgery, whatever that part of the brain was doing is now gone. If the damage occurs in early childhood when the brain is especially plastic, or in adulthood in certain parts of the brain that are conducive to rewiring, then that brain function - that "mind" part of the brain - may be rewired into another neural network in the brain. But this process just further reinforces the fact that without neural connections in the brain there is no mind. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Connections quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#36. I lay there, stretched out, looking at the one star visible through the tiny window of the room. Only connect. How can you do that when the connections are broken? #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Connections quotes by Roger Ebert
#37. And yet, even so, there is a way to find happiness. That is to be curious about all of the interlocking events that add up to our lives. To notice connections. To be amused or perhaps frightened by the ways things work out. If the universe is indifferent, what a consolation that we are not. #Quote by Roger Ebert
Connections quotes by Pete Wentz
#38. Soccer presented no challenge to me. Playing felt like breathing: I always had a magical connection to the ball. But it didn't feel like an adventure. Music was more of a challenge and, in the end, felt more interesting. #Quote by Pete Wentz
Connections quotes by Selana Kitt
#39. When I was little, I thought the stars were holes that God had cut into the sky so that the sun could shine through at night #Quote by Selana Kitt
Connections quotes by Brian Greene
#40. Quantum mechanics challenges this view by revealing, at least in certain circumstances, a capacity to transcend space; long-range quantum connections can bypass spatial separation. Two objects can be far apart in space, but as far as quantum mechanics is concerned, it's as if they're a single entity. #Quote by Brian Greene
Connections quotes by Jennifer Probst
#41. Connections only caused a ripping pain no one deserved. #Quote by Jennifer Probst
Connections quotes by George Takei
#42. If leadership requires a fired-up sense of purpose and imagination, it also demands a profound connection to the society to be led. Like it or not, this is our culture, and we should embrace and celebrate it, even while we strive to refine and shape it. #Quote by George Takei
Connections quotes by Seth Godin
#43. Conformity no longer leads to comfort. But the good news is that creativity is scarce, and more valuable than ever. So is choosing to do something unpredictable and brave: make art. Being an artist isn't a genetic disposition or a specific talent. It's an attitude we can all adopt. It's a hunger to seize new ground, make connections, and work without a map. If you do those things you're an artist, no matter what it says on your business card. #Quote by Seth Godin
Connections quotes by Michael     Ryan

He will never be given to wonder much
if he was the mouth for some cruel force
that said it. But if he were
(this will comfort her) less than one moment
out of millions had he meant it.

So many years and so many turns
they had swerved around the subject.
And he will swear for many more
the kitchen and everything in it vanished --

the oak table, their guests, the refrigerator door
he had been surely propped against--
all changed to rusted ironwork and ash
except in the center in her linen caftan:
she was not touched.

He remembers the silence before he spoke
and her nodding a little,
as if in the meat of this gray waste
here was the signal

for him to speak what they had long agreed,
what somewhere they had prepared together.
And this one moment in the desert of ash
stretches into forever.

They had been having a dinner party.
She had been lonely.
A friend asked her almost joking
if she had ever felt really crazy,

and when she started to unwind her answer
in long, lovely sentences like scarves within her
he saw this was the way
they could no longer talk together.

And that is when he said it,
in front of the guests,
because he couldn't bear to hear her.
And this is why the guests have left
and she screams as he comes near her. #Quote by Michael Ryan
Connections quotes by Patricia Reilly Giff
#45. I want to see children curled up with books, finding an awareness of themselves as they discover other people's thoughts. #Quote by Patricia Reilly Giff
Connections quotes by Sophie Blackall
#46. Someone wrote to me asking me to illustrate a missed connection that "hasn't happened yet." This guy has seen the same girl waiting at a bus stop on his morning commute for weeks, and has been trying to find a way to approach her. He thought it would be fun to put up a Missed Connections poster [of my painting] on the corner where she waits and see what happens. It is kind of an intriguing idea but there's something a bit too manipulative about it for my liking. It's a fine line between being creative and stalking! #Quote by Sophie Blackall
Connections quotes by Sara Shandler
#47. Our relationship, our shared support, our consistency, is unrivaled by any other connection. #Quote by Sara Shandler
Connections quotes by David Batstone
#48. My aim is to integrate business connections into vulnerable communities thus creating jobs. #Quote by David Batstone
Connections quotes by Pam Jones
#49. One would think, however, that sharing a name might offer a thin string of connection. It was always a thrill to meet someone who had the same name as you, and unlike a lot of things, this was a thrill that never quite faded. #Quote by Pam Jones
Connections quotes by William H Gass
#50. I cannot walk under the wires. The sparrows scatter like handfuls of gravel. Really, wires are voices in thin strips. They are words wound in cables. Bars of connection. #Quote by William H Gass
Connections quotes by Mark Mason
#51. I was attracted to the direct connection with history that land surveyors experience in the form of plans, field notes, and from surveying monuments from decades or even centuries in the past. #Quote by Mark Mason
Connections quotes by Jessica Zafra
#52. We like to look for patterns and find connections in unrelated events. This way we can explain them to ourselves. Life seems neater, or at least less messy. We need to feel we are in control: it is integral to our self-esteem. We also know, though we deny it, that we are not in control. So we settle for the illusions of control. What if we stopped fooling ourselves? #Quote by Jessica Zafra
Connections quotes by Lisa Randall
#53. Neuroscience is exciting. Understanding how thoughts work, how connections are made, how the memory works, how we process information, how information is stored - it's all fascinating. #Quote by Lisa Randall
Connections quotes by Rose McIver
#54. I am inspired by working professionals who find lots of time for family and friends. It is easy to get caught up in a career, and I personally aspire to maintain strong connections with the people who matter most to me. #Quote by Rose McIver
Connections quotes by Skylar Astin
#55. I'm definitely lucky to have been included in some of the perks of my brother's connections in the fashion world. It's helpful considering I'm still like a five-year-old when it comes to shopping. #Quote by Skylar Astin
Connections quotes by Andrew Neff
#56. Marcie: Neurons that play together stay together, that is how we make connections.
Danny: You want to play on my neural network? Are you sending me a modulation signal? #Quote by Andrew Neff
Connections quotes by Shai Tubali
#57. Only absolute simplicity can resolve a horrible complication; only a state free from psychology can heal psychological connections, and only a lucid brain can let go of a compulsive thought. #Quote by Shai Tubali
Connections quotes by Carrie Preston
#58. We women often gauge our own self-worth by the quality of our interactions with our lovers. And often these interactions are interpreted for, described for, processed by our women friends. Relationships are the conduits through which flows our connection with each other. #Quote by Carrie Preston
Connections quotes by T.C. Boyle
#59. Sometimes, when she's out here alone, she can feel the pulse of something bigger, as if all things animate were beating in unison, a glory and a connection that sweeps her out of herself, out of her consciousness, so that nothing has a name, not in Latin, not in English, not in any known language. #Quote by T.C. Boyle
Connections quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#60. Some people look for the obvious and make decisions based on that. However, sensitive people look for the subtle things in life. They observe what is missed, overlooked and rarely observed by others. They dwell at a deeper level of perception that clings to signs, body language and what is left unspoken. They are observers that will trust their instinct first over any fact or well delivered speech. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Connections quotes by Lisa Randall
#61. When I came to Harvard, I was debating between math and science, and I guess I thought in the end I wanted something that could connect to the real world. I liked puzzle-solving and connections. #Quote by Lisa Randall
Connections quotes by Dov Seidman
#62. How can HOW help us repair our faltering global economy?
Only by getting our "hows" right can we ensure that we are sustainable. This can only be achieved when we are rooted in, and inspired by, sustainable values. The global economic meltdown supplied a perfect, but painful, example of how sustainability cannot be guided by situational values. The economic crash occurred because too many financial companies became disconnected from fundamental values and long-term sustainable thinking. Instead of nurturing sustainable collaborations, banks, lenders, borrowers and shareholders pursued short-term relationships founded on situational values. More than ever we need to get out of this cycle of crises and build long-term success and deep human connections so that we achieve enduring significance in today's globally interconnected world. #Quote by Dov Seidman
Connections quotes by Edward Hirsch
#63. The mysterious thing about writing poetry is that when you're - when things are going poorly, when you're not thinking well, even making two sentences together is extremely hard and I just can't make the connections. #Quote by Edward Hirsch
Connections quotes by Gro Harlem Brundtland
#64. Morality becomes hypocrisy if it means accepting mothers' suffering or dying in connection with unwanted pregnancies and illegal abortions and unwanted children. #Quote by Gro Harlem Brundtland
Connections quotes by Seth Godin
#65. Surprise and delight and connection are remarkable. #Quote by Seth Godin
Connections quotes by Anonymous
#66. As a society we certainly equate speed with smarts. Think fast. Are you quick-witted? A quick study? A whiz kid? Even Merriam-Webster bluntly informs us that slowness is "the quality of lacking intelligence or quickness of mind." But we also recognize something counter-intuitive about accepting full-stop that people who react faster are smarter. That's why, even though athletic training improves reaction time, we wouldn't scout for the next Einstein at a basketball game. Intelligence probably has a lot to do with making fast connections, but it surely has just as much to do with making the right connections. #Quote by Anonymous
Connections quotes by Sean Lennon
#67. My father was assassinated by an FBI-CIA connection #Quote by Sean Lennon
Connections quotes by Wayne Dyer
#68. Be aware of your infinite connection to your source. Know that you're more than an encapsulated collection of bones, blood and organs in a skin and hair covered body. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Connections quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#69. [It] is impossible for us to establish a living vital connection with the masses unless we will work for them, through them and in their midst, not as their patrons but as their servants. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Connections quotes by Bob Thurber
#70. Remember ...
Keystrokes are hammer taps. Get words on paper. Don't worry about connections, character or plot. Work for an hour. Promise yourself an hour. Do nothing else but move your fingers. Make coarse shapes. Follow any emotion that pops up but never impose emotion, never fake it, and don't make up your mind or your heart ahead of time. Understand you don't know what you're doing. That's why you're here. Rough it out. Anything goes. You can decide later what any piece of text looks like, what it might mean. Don't stop. Don't question. Don't quit. Don't stop to read what you wrote. Move your fingers. You mind will have no other option but to keep up. Remember that writer's block is merely the cold marble waiting for the chisel to heat up. #Quote by Bob Thurber
Connections quotes by Adam Bucko
#71. This new spirituality is much more about taking off the masks of pretense and cultivating genuine heart connections that inspire growth in both elders and youth, rather than in keeping with tradition or respecting authority. It is all about true aliveness and entering into life in a more full and deep way. #Quote by Adam Bucko
Connections quotes by Ludwig Buchner
#72. The universe, as we see it, is the result of regularly working forces, having a causal connection with each other and therefore capable of being understood by human reason. #Quote by Ludwig Buchner
Connections quotes by Yoko Ono
#73. Sometimes the father feels pushed out because of the connection between the mother and the child. #Quote by Yoko Ono
Connections quotes by Richard Rohr
#74. Most women prefer circles of sharing to pyramids and hierarchies. They prefer conversation to construction. They will usually choose nurturance and empathy over competition and climbing. They will normally choose connection over simple performance games. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Connections quotes by Josef Pieper
#75. Each gratification points to the ultimate one, and that all happiness has some connection with eternal beatitude. Some connection, if only this: that every fulfillment this side of Heaven instantly reveals its inadequacy. It is immediately evident that such satisfactions are not enough; they are not what we have really sought; they cannot really satisfy us at all. #Quote by Josef Pieper
Connections quotes by James Ellroy
#76. Sometimes I felt connections begging to be made, sometimes I cursed myself for not having ten percent more gray matter, sometimes the report carbons just made me think of Lee. #Quote by James Ellroy
Connections quotes by Louis Cozolino
#77. Sensitive periods are triggered via the interaction of genetic timing and experience. Sensitive periods are times of rapid learning when thousands of synaptic connections are made each second (Greenough, 1987; ten Cate, 1989). The timing of sensitive periods varies #Quote by Louis Cozolino
Connections quotes by John Gokongwei
#78. Success is not necessarily about connections, or cutting corners, or chamba - the three Cs of bad business. Call it trite, but believe me: success can be achieved through hard work, frugality, integrity, responsiveness to change, and most of all, boldness to dream. #Quote by John Gokongwei
Connections quotes by Mark Cuban
#79. All you need is a laptop or a PC and an Internet connection and you can pretty much do almost anything and create almost any type of company. #Quote by Mark Cuban
Connections quotes by Dr. Warren Shepell
#80. Porn mainly exists to satisfy the physical needs of men. Unfortunately many young men use porn to get educated about sex. But porn is not romance, lovemaking and about an emotional connection with their girlfriend, wife, or lover. #Quote by Dr. Warren Shepell
Connections quotes by Andrew Solomon
#81. I'd had a vaguely Jewish upbringing, but no deep connection to faith. #Quote by Andrew Solomon
Connections quotes by Joseph Addison
#82. It is odd to consider the connection between despotism and barbarity, and how the making one person more than man makes the rest less. #Quote by Joseph Addison
Connections quotes by Paul Stamets
#83. The virus-to-cancer connection is where medicinal mushrooms offer unique opportunities for medical research. #Quote by Paul Stamets
Connections quotes by Cate Conniff
#84. These connections between food and wine and people has taught me the largest lesson in my life, one that I have made my culinary life's quest: the difference between taste and flavor. We experience taste in a number of ways through our senses - what food feels like in our mouths, what it smells like, looks, feels, and even sounds like. Flavor, for me, is more allusive. As I braise a Don Watson lamb #Quote by Cate Conniff
Connections quotes by Dan Farmer
#85. I can write a program that lets you break the copy protection on a music file. But I can't write a program that solders new connections onto a chip for you. #Quote by Dan Farmer
Connections quotes by Joan Jett
#86. The thing I get out of it is the connection. I remember going to shows as a kid and meeting eyes with the people in the band, and knowing they are meeting eyes with you, and that moment, that smile, and that's your moment. I want to create millions of little moments for other people. #Quote by Joan Jett
Connections quotes by Thomas Szasz
#87. In English-speaking countries, the connection between heresy and homosexuality is expressed through the use of a single word to denote both concepts: buggery ... Webster's Unabridged Dictionary (Third Edition) defines "buggery" as "heresy, sodomy. #Quote by Thomas Szasz
Connections quotes by Nicholas Carr
#88. The Net grants us instant access to a library of information unprecedented in its size and scope, and it makes it easy for us to sort through that library - to find, if not exactly what we were looking for, at least something sufficient for our immediate purposes. What the Net diminishes is Johnson's primary kind of knowledge: the ability to know, in depth, a subject for ourselves, to construct within our own minds the rich and idiosyncratic set of connections that give rise to a singular intelligence. #Quote by Nicholas Carr
Connections quotes by Kim Garst
#89. What businesses really need is to build connections that last, connections that transcend a single product or marketing campaign, connections that span an extended period. #Quote by Kim Garst
Connections quotes by Kent Beck
#90. Without planning, we are individuals with haphazard connections and effectiveness. We are a team when we plan and work in harmony. #Quote by Kent Beck
Connections quotes by Antoine Predock
#91. The connection to place, to the land, the wind, the sun, stars, the moon ... it sounds romantic, but it's true - the visceral experience of motion, of moving through time on some amazing machine - a few cars touch on it, but not too many compared to motorcycles. I always felt that any motorcycle journey was special. #Quote by Antoine Predock
Connections quotes by Werner Heisenberg
#92. Quantum theory provides us with a striking illustration of the fact that we can fully understand a connection though we can only speak of it in images and parables. #Quote by Werner Heisenberg
Connections quotes by Bret Easton Ellis
#93. We're at a dinner party in an apartment on Rue Paul Valéry between Avenue Foch and Avenue Victor Hugo and it's all rather subdued since a small percentage of the invited guests were blown up in the Ritz yesterday. For comfort people went shopping, which is understandable even if they bought things a little too enthusiastically. Tonight it's just wildflowers and white lilies, just W's Paris bureau chief, Donna Karan, Aerin Lauder, Ines de la Fressange and Christian Louboutin, who thinks I snubbed him and maybe I did but maybe I'm past the point of caring. Just Annette Bening and Michael Stipe in a tomato-red wig. Just Tammy on heroin, serene and glassy-eyed, her lips swollen from collagen injections, beeswax balm spread over her mouth, gliding through the party, stopping to listen to Kate Winslet, to Jean Reno, to Polly Walker, to Jacques Grange. Just the smell of shit, floating, its fumes spreading everywhere. Just another conversation with a chic sadist obsessed with origami. Just another armless man waving a stump and whispering excitedly, "Natasha's coming!" Just people tan and back from the Ariel Sands Beach Club in Bermuda, some of them looking reskinned. Just me, making connections based on fear, experiencing vertigo, drinking a Woo-Woo. #Quote by Bret Easton Ellis
Connections quotes by Chris Crutcher
#94. I believe there was a big bang and that because of that we are all connected into infinity, and I know very little having to do with human beings that doesn't also have to do with connection. #Quote by Chris Crutcher
Connections quotes by Joseph Campbell
#95. Our actual ultimate root is in our humanity, not in our personal genealogy. #Quote by Joseph Campbell
Connections quotes by Alice Miller
#96. In my investigations of the connections between morality and the body, I encountered two further aspects that, unlike the problem of forgiveness, were new to me. One question I asked myself concerned the true nature of the feeling that we, as adults, persist in calling love for our parents. The other aspect that struck me was the realization that throughout our lives the body craves the nourishment that it needed so badly in childhood but was never given. I believe that this is a source of suffering and distress for many people. Part #Quote by Alice Miller
Connections quotes by Seth Godin
#97. Seizing new ground, making connections between people or ideas, working without a map - these are works of art, and if you do them, you are an artist, regardless of whether you wear a smock, use a computer, or work with others all day long. #Quote by Seth Godin
Connections quotes by Barack Obama
#98. When people are judged by merit, not connections, then the best and brightest can lead the country, people will work hard, and the entire economy will grow - everyone will benefit and more resources will be available for all, not just select groups. #Quote by Barack Obama
Connections quotes by Terence McKenna
#99. I believe that what makes the psychedelic experience so central is that it is a connection into a larger modality of organization on the planet, which is a fancy way of saying it connects you up to the mind of Nature Herself. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Connections quotes by Arthur Levitt
#100. Although the Internet makes it seem as if you have a direct connection to the securities market, you don't. Lines may clog; systems may break; orders may back-up. #Quote by Arthur Levitt
Connections quotes by Gary Zukav
#101. Bell's theorem ... proves that quantum theory requires connections that appear to resemble telepathic communication. #Quote by Gary Zukav
Connections quotes by Deepak Chopra
#102. No matter what advantages you are born with
money, intelligence, an appealing personality, a sunny outlook, or good social connections
none of these provides a magic key to an easy existence. Somehow life manages to bring difficult problems, the causes of untold suffering and struggle. How you meet your challenges makes all the difference between the promise of success and the specter of failure. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Connections quotes by Novak Djokovic
#103. It's interesting that I had such a close relationship with my grandfather. Because your parents always judge you: they say, 'You shouldn't do this, you shouldn't do that.' But with your grandparents you have a feeling that you can say anything or you can do anything, and they will support you. That's why you have this kind of connection. #Quote by Novak Djokovic
Connections quotes by Marge Piercy
#104. Connections are made slowly, sometimes they grow underground #Quote by Marge Piercy
Connections quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#105. No matter how potent your talents are, they remain to be out of use until you take time to develop them to their optimum level. This calls for preparation. Through preparation, personal branding, consistent exposure and productive connections, you set up a condition for your dreams to flourish and bear fruits! #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Connections quotes by Alice Boyes
#106. When people's anxiety is less severe, they might not worry that they're going crazy. Instead, they'll often feel like their anxiety is holding them back. If they're not making as much progress with their goals as they'd like, they'll wonder if they're a fundamentally weak or incompetent person. Some people believe their anxiety makes them broken and unlovable. They might question if they're ever going to have satisfying connections with other people or if they're destined for a life of rejection and loneliness. #Quote by Alice Boyes
Connections quotes by Jane Roberts
#107. Beneath words and logic are emotional connections that largely direct how we use our words and logic. #Quote by Jane Roberts
Connections quotes by Russell M. Nelson
#108. When our hearts turn to our ancestors, something changes inside us. We feel part of something greater than ourselves. Our inborn yearnings for family connections are fulfilled when we are linked to our ancestors ... #Quote by Russell M. Nelson
Connections quotes by Nora Samaran
#109. Attachment theory teaches us that true autonomy relies on feeling securely connected to other human beings. Current developments in the field of attachment science have recognized that bonded pairs, such as couples, or parents and children, build bonds that physiologically shape their nervous systems. Contrary to many Western conceptions of the self as disconnected and atomized, operating in isolation using nothing but grit and determination, it turns out that close-knit connections to others are in large part how we grow into our own, fully expressed, autonomous selves. #Quote by Nora Samaran
Connections quotes by Kevin Kline
#110. The technique's many benefits for actors include minimized tension, centeredness, vocal relaxation, and responsiveness, mind/body connection and about an inch and a half of additional height. #Quote by Kevin Kline
Connections quotes by Kengo Kuma
#111. Architecture forms a vital link between people and their surroundings. It acts as a gentle buffer between the fragility of human existence and the vast world outside. How different people choose to build connections in their environment essentially defines those societies and their relationships to conditions around them. #Quote by Kengo Kuma
Connections quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#112. With me the connection between the cosmic phenomena and human behaviour is a living faith that draws me nearer to God, humbles me and makes me readier for facing Him. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Connections quotes by Judy Collins
#113. I have friends who've tried suicide many times and haven't succeeded. I myself made an attempt, so I had a connection with that sort of group of people who have tried suicide at one time in their lives. #Quote by Judy Collins

Connections quotes by John Maiorana (oohGiovanni)
#115. Yes I value strong friendships on a very deep level, I value these connections because time and time again i will go through heartbreak, I will forget my self worth, I will make mistakes and my world will feel broken beyond repair and to have these special people in your life that will be there to help you pick up the pieces and remind you what makes you special and worth being alive is the most amazing feeling in the world and I would never trade that for anything. #Quote by John Maiorana (oohGiovanni)
Connections quotes by Isaac Marion
#116. I remember what love was like before There were complex emotional and biological factors at work. We had elaborate tests to pass, connections to forge, ups and downs and tears and whirlwinds. It was an ordeal, an exercise in agony, but it was alive. The new love is simpler. Easier. But small. #Quote by Isaac Marion
Connections quotes by Andrea Goeglein
#117. Only when we pay attention and notice small moments, do we make the connections that lead to a change in our perspective. #Quote by Andrea Goeglein
Connections quotes by David Brooks
#118. The people who really have character make deep, unshakable connections to something outside themselves. #Quote by David Brooks
Connections quotes by John Ruskin
#119. There are, indeed, two forms of discontent: one laborious, the other indolent and complaining. We respect the man of laborious desire, but let us not suppose that his restlessness is peace, or his ambition meekness. It is because of the special connection of meekness with contentment that it is promised that the meek shall 'inherit the earth.' Neither covetous men, nor the grave, can inherit anything; they can but consume. Only contentment can possess. #Quote by John Ruskin
Connections quotes by Ilona Andrews
#120. If I were on my own, packing some power, and for some reason not wanting to be found, I might lay low for a while. But I'd know sooner or later I'd have to come out and play, because whoever's looking for me would eventually find me. I'd start building some connections. The thing about a lone wolf? Once you corner it, it has no one to turn to. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Connections quotes by Jed Diamond
#121. Anything that helps us know ourselves more deeply, love ourselves more fully, improve our social connections with family and friends, and engage us more completely with the earth, animals, and environment, is a good resource for healing. #Quote by Jed Diamond
Connections quotes by Brennan Manning
#122. There is an essential connection between experiencing God, loving God, and trusting God. You will trust God only as much as you love him. And you will love him to the extent you have touched him, rather that he has touched you. #Quote by Brennan Manning
Connections quotes by Laura Lynne Jackson
#123. Souls have deep connections and unique contracts that span centuries, exist back and forth in time, and bind us in ways we can't really understand.... These connections are ancient and everlasting, and they already exist in our hearts, even if we're not always aware of them. #Quote by Laura Lynne Jackson
Connections quotes by Gary Zukav
#124. When you make the connection between your choices and your experiences, you do not have to create the same experiences again. #Quote by Gary Zukav

Connections quotes by Brendan Kennelly
#127. Poetry is, above all, a singing art of natural and magical connection because, though it is born out of one's person's solitude, it has the ability to reach out and touch in a humane and warmly illuminating way the solitude, even the loneliness, of others. That is why, to me, poetry is one of the most vital treasures that humanity possesses; it is a bridge between separated souls. #Quote by Brendan Kennelly
Connections quotes by Sonia Sotomayor
#128. The persistence or failure of human relationships cannot be predicted by any set of objective or universal criteria. We are all limited, highly imperfect beings, worthy in some dimensions, deficient in others, and if we would understand how any of our connections survive, we would do well to look first to what is good in each of us. #Quote by Sonia Sotomayor
Connections quotes by Michael Gungor
#129. Creativity is simply the human brain forming new connections between ideas, and we all are engaged in this process every day. The common idea that there are some people who are creative and some who are not is a myth. On some level, we are all artists. We are all creators. #Quote by Michael Gungor
Connections quotes by John Roos
#130. Growing up in California, I obviously knew about our deep connections with the Japanese. #Quote by John Roos
Connections quotes by Charles Dickens
#131. There is nothing truer than physiognomy, taken in connection with manner. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Connections quotes by Thomas Armstrong
#132. The word creativity is closely linked to the word genius, since both words have the root meaning 'to give birth.' Essentially, creativity designates the capacity to give birth to new ways of looking at things, the ability to make novel connections between disparate things, and the knack for seeing things that might be missed by the typical way of viewing life. #Quote by Thomas Armstrong
Connections quotes by Barbara Oakley
#133. Multitasking means that you are not able to make full, rich connections in your thinking, because the part of your brain that helps make connections is constantly being pulled away before neural connections can be firmed up. #Quote by Barbara Oakley
Connections quotes by Aleksandar Hemon
#134. There's no connection between consumption of art and moral stamina at all. #Quote by Aleksandar Hemon
Connections quotes by Daniel H. Wilson
#135. The true knowledge is not in the things, but in finding the connections between the things. #Quote by Daniel H. Wilson
Connections quotes by Michio Kaku
#136. There are an estimated 100 billion neurons residing inside the skull with an exponential amount of neural connections #Quote by Michio Kaku
Connections quotes by Donald O. Clifton
#137. If nature didn't whittle down your network to a smaller number of strongly forged connections, you would never become an adult. You would remain a permanent child, frozen in sensory overload. #Quote by Donald O. Clifton
Connections quotes by Niklas Zennstrom
#138. With our work at Kazaa, we began seeing growing broadband connections and more powerful computers and more streaming multimedia, and we saw that the traditional way of communicating by phone no longer made a lot of sense. #Quote by Niklas Zennstrom
Connections quotes by Buck Brannaman
#139. There is something in the human psyche that there is a connection between horses and humans, a real special kind of a thing, and I guess it's always been there. I hope it will always be there, I hope we don't evolve past that. #Quote by Buck Brannaman
Connections quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#140. Transformational entertainment is a story that both entertains and uplifts you, not simply because you are inspired, but because it reveals the mechanics that allow people to have more effective, loving lives, lives of more connection, community, and communion. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Connections quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#141. Images barraged him. Connections darted electric. Veins. Roots. Forked lightning. Tributaries. Branches. Vines snaked around trees, herds of animals, drops of water running together.

I don't understand.

Fingers twined together. Shoulder leaned on shoulder. Fist bumping fist. Hand dragging Adam up from the dirt.

Cabeswater rifled madly through Adam's own memories and flashed them through his mind. It hurled images of Gansey, Ronan, Noah, and Blue so fast that Adam couldn't keep up with all of them.

Then the grid of lightning blasted across the world, an illuminated grid of energy.

Adam still did not understand, and then he did.

There was more than one Cabeswater. Or more of whatever it was. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Connections quotes by Marnie Stern
#142. The point of life for me is just to make connections with people and share experiences with people. #Quote by Marnie Stern
Connections quotes by Jamie Lynn Spears
#143. I hope that they learn who I am today and embrace that as well. I think that's the biggest thing of really introducing myself to them. Hopefully that creates a stronger connection with the fans that I already have and hopefully helps me make some new fans. #Quote by Jamie Lynn Spears
Connections quotes by Adrienne Maree Brown
#144. Do you already know that your existence--who and how you are--is in and of itself a contribution to the people and place around you? Not after or because you do some particular thing, but simply the miracle of your life. And that the people around you, and the place(s), have contributions as well? Do you understand that your quality of life and your survival are tied to how authentic and generous the connections are between you and the people and place you live with and in?

Are you actively practicing generosity and vulnerability in order to make the connections between you and others clear, open, available, durable? Generosity here means giving of what you have without strings or expectations attached. Vulnerability means showing your needs. #Quote by Adrienne Maree Brown
Connections quotes by Joseph Fink
#145. She was not shy, but maybe lazy socially. Not willing to seek out situations and connections that were not already part of her routine. #Quote by Joseph Fink
Connections quotes by Christopher Walken
#146. There's something dangerous about what's funny. Jarring and disconcerting. There is a connection between funny and scary. #Quote by Christopher Walken
Connections quotes by Philippa Perry
#147. If we keep practicing mental skills it is likely we can strengthen neural connections and make new connections. #Quote by Philippa Perry
Connections quotes by Charles Baudelaire
#148. Who among us has not, in moments of ambition, dreamt of the miracle of a form of poetic prose, musical but without rhythm and rhyme, both supple and staccato enough to adapt itself to the lyrical movements of our souls, the undulating movements of our reveries, and the convulsive movements of our consciences? This obsessive ideal springs above all from frequent contact with enormous cities, from the junction of their innumerable connections. #Quote by Charles Baudelaire
Connections quotes by Gustave Le Bon
#149. A crowd thinks in images, and the image itself calls up a series of other images, having no logical connection with the first ... A crowd scarcely distinguishes between the subjective and the objective. It accepts as real the images invoked in its mind, though they most often have only a very distant relation with the observed facts ... Crowds being only capable of thinking in images are only to be impressed by images. #Quote by Gustave Le Bon
Connections quotes by Aleksandra Mir
#150. "Hello" is always presented as a linear narrative, a singular chain, sometimes in a loop. But the reality of making it is that connections are naturally sprawling all over the place, so I am free to edit any way I want. #Quote by Aleksandra Mir
Connections quotes by Mark Curtis
#151. With few apparent connections to Afghanistan as such, but there were no calls to bomb Riyadh (imagine if the hijackers had been Iraqi). Rather, Saudi Arabia is a favoured ally in the 'war against terrorism'. It is obvious that at stake here are US geopolitical interests (discussed further below), more than concerns to prevent future terrorism. #Quote by Mark Curtis
Connections quotes by Seth Godin
#152. The best time to start promoting your book is three years before it comes out. Three years to build a reputation, build a permission asset, build a blog, build a following, build credibility and build the connections you'll need later. #Quote by Seth Godin
Connections quotes by Errol Morris
#153. A movie is like a tip of an iceberg, in a way, because so little of what you do in connection with making a movie actually gets into the movie. Almost everything gets left behind. #Quote by Errol Morris
Connections quotes by Pat Metheny
#154. I'm always trying to find 'connections' between things. That art is the juxtaposition of a lot of things that seem unrelated but add up to something recognizable. #Quote by Pat Metheny
Connections quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#155. Enthusiasm - a distemper of youth, curable by small doses of repentance in connection with outward applications of experience. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Connections quotes by Sheryl Sandberg
#156. Personal connections lead to assignments and promotions, so it needs to be okay for men and women to spend informal time together the same way men can. A senior man and a junior man at a bar is seen as mentoring. A senior man and a junior woman at a bar can also be mentoring ... but is looks like dating. #Quote by Sheryl Sandberg
Connections quotes by Mary Rose O'Reilley
#157. If we remember that the German word for holy (selig) is the root of our word silly, we may be forced to make some pertinent connections. #Quote by Mary Rose O'Reilley
Connections quotes by Mike Rose
#158. Teaching social science is at its best meant assisting students in making connections across time and place, both seeking common humanity and coming to understand broad historical and political forces. #Quote by Mike Rose
Connections quotes by Dorothy Height
#159. I think of my life as a unity of circles. Some are concentric, others overlap, but they all connect in some way. Sometimes the connections don't happen for years. But when they do, I marvel. As in a shimmering kaleidoscope, familiar patterns keep unfolding #Quote by Dorothy Height
Connections quotes by Fran Lebowitz
#160. There are some great writers who are great talkers, but there are more great writers who are not great talkers. People seem to think there is some connection between talking and writing, but I love to talk and if there were some connection between the two of them I would be the most prolific writer in the history of the world. #Quote by Fran Lebowitz
Connections quotes by Richelle Mead
#161. And what makes you so certain I won't enlighten the world about your romantic indiscretions?"

"Because it won't save you from prison. And if you ruin Rose, you'll destroy whatever weak chance you had of Lissa helping you with your warped fantasy." Victor flinched just a little; Dimitri was right. Dimitri stepped forward, pressing close to the bars as I had earlier. I'd though I had a scary voice, but when he spoke his next words, I realized I wasn't even close. "And it'll be pointless anyway, because you won't stay alive long enough in prison to stage your grand plans. You aren't the only one with connections."

My breath caught a little. Dimitri brought so many things to my life: love, comfort, and instruction. I got so used to him sometimes I forgot how dangerous he could be. As he stood there, tall and threatening while he glared down at Victor, I felt a chill run down my spine. I remembered how when I had first come to the Academy, people said Dimitri was a god. In this moment, he looked like it. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Connections quotes by Tom Robbins
#162. Perhaps everything was connected to everything, in a discernible if nebulous way, and if one might only trace the fibers and filaments of those connections, one might ... One might what? Observe the Grand Design? Untangle all the puppet strings and discover whose hands (or claws) are pulling them? End the ancient search for order and meaning in the universe? #Quote by Tom Robbins
Connections quotes by Dennis Kucinich
#163. We need to see the connection between global warring and global warming, and it's oil. Sustainability is the path to peace. #Quote by Dennis Kucinich
Connections quotes by Tertullian
#164. Thus the connection of the Father in the Son, and of the Son in the Paraclete, produces three coherent Persons, who are yet distinct One from Another. These three are one [thing], not one [Person], as it is said, 'I and my Father are One,' in respect of unity of substance not singularity of number. #Quote by Tertullian
Connections quotes by Mahatma Gandhi

Connections quotes by John Berger

Connections quotes by Erin Loechner
#170. A girlfriend once shared with me the theory about the three buckets we hold in our lives. One bucket contains our connection, another our vitality, and a third our contribution. The theory goes like this: when one bucket is empty, the others need to be filled. When you're feeling lonely, alienated, and low on connection, boost your vitality and contribution. Take a walk, cook a nutritious meal, volunteer to bake cookies for the blood drive. When you're feeling spent and low on energy, on stamina, perhaps you've been neglecting connections and contributions. Invite a few friends over for takeout and brainstorm creative projects. When you're feeling as if you have nothing to give, nothing to contribute, fill your connection and vitality buckets. #Quote by Erin Loechner
Connections quotes by Nick Miller
#171. Travel is little beds and cramped bathrooms. It's old television sets and slow Internet connections. Travel is extraordinary conversations with ordinary people. It's waiters, gas station attendants, and housekeepers becoming the most interesting people in the world. It's churches that are compelling enough to enter. It's McDonald's being a luxury. It's the realization that you may have been born in the wrong country. Travel is a smile that leads to a conversation in broken English. It's the epiphany that pretty girls smile the same way all over the world. Travel is tipping 10% and being embraced for it. Travel is the same white T-shirt again tomorrow. Travel is accented sex after good wine and too many unfiltered cigarettes. Travel is flowing in the back of a bus with giggly strangers. It's a street full of bearded backpackers looking down at maps. Travel is wishing for one more bite of whatever that just was. It's the rediscovery of walking somewhere. It's sharing a bottle of liquor on an overnight train with a new friend. Travel is "Maybe I don't have to do it that way when I get back home." It's nostalgia for studying abroad that one semester. Travel is realizing that "age thirty" should be shed of its goddamn stigma. #Quote by Nick Miller

Connections quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#176. At issue here is the question: "To whom do I belong? God or to the world?" Many of my daily preoccupations suggest that I belong more to the world than to God. A little criticism makes me angry, and a little rejection makes me depressed. A little praise raises my spirits, and a little success excites me. It takes very little to raise me up or thrust me down. Often I am like a small boat on the ocean, completely at the mercy of its waves. All the time and energy I spend in keeping some kind of balance and preventing myself from being tipped over and drowning shows that my life is mostly a struggle for survival: not a holy struggle, but an anxious struggle resulting from the mistaken idea that it is the world that defines me.

As long as I keep running about asking: "Do you love me? Do you really love me?" I give all power to the voices of the world and put myself in bondage because the world is filled with "ifs." The world says: "Yes, I love you if you are good-looking, intelligent, and wealthy. I love you if you have a good education, a good job, and good connections. I love you if you produce much, sell much, and buy much." There are endless "ifs" hidden in the world's love. These "ifs" enslave me, since it is impossible to respond adequately to all of them. The world's love is and always will be conditional. As long as I keep looking for my true self in the world of conditional love, I will remain "hooked" to the world-trying, failing,and trying again. It is a wor #Quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen

Connections quotes by Louis Schwartzberg
#180. I've spent my life capturing beautiful images. And whether in wilderness or in the downtown of a giant city, I find connections, universal rhythms, patterns and beauty that I recognize as a part of me, a part of all of us that celebrates life. It's my great pleasure to share with you that energy which inspires me; this great visual beauty of our world. #Quote by Louis Schwartzberg
Connections quotes by Bob Welch
#181. Our culture places a premium on work, not on relationships. Think about it. When we meet someone, our first question is not so what kind of positive impact are you having on the people around you?" No, it 's " what do you do for a living"? It's not "how are you investing in others?" Instead even if unspoken, it's "how much money do you make?" Our identity lies in jobs, titles, incomes,not in our connections to people. #Quote by Bob Welch
Connections quotes by Elly Blake
#182. So your vow of poverty means nothing to you," I said, amused at his flaring nostrils. How easy it was to goad him. "A fact made even clearer when you look out your window at the hundred or more starving people freezing to death on those docks. They seemed to view the arrival of our ship as a last hope."

"I can't control how many people choose to leave our shores, or how few ships are here to transport them. The Winter of Purification is upon us. I do not question the will of the gods; I merely serve."

"I think it's your own will you follow. You always were obsessed with Frostblood purity."

"Only the strongest will remain." His eyes shifted to Arcus. "No true Frostblood would object to that."

"Is that what you're posturing as?" I demanded. "A true Frostblood? Last I checked, you had no gift to speak of."

He drew himself up. "I've always thought the mark of a true Frostblood was in his character."

"Excuse me?" I laughed at the idea of him having anything resembling character. "Oh, and I suppose that's why those people out there are freezing? Because they have no character?" My voice rose. "I think it's because they don't have your connections, your wealth, and your guile. You plunder their lands to fill your coffers, spending your coin on food and fine clothing while common folk starve! The proof is in these invoices and ledgers." I grabbed a wad of scrolls and tossed them at him. They hit his chest and scattered #Quote by Elly Blake
Connections quotes by Nicolas Cage
#183. When I'm in England, I know I'm a visitor, but being a white man in England with ancestry that's German and Italian, I have a history with the Romans and the Saxons. I feel some connection and ancestry here, as weird as that sounds. #Quote by Nicolas Cage
Connections quotes by Nathanael Johnson
#184. Many of the people who regularly feed and cultivate relationships with pigeons are themselves on the fringes of society. They are disconnected from other people due to poverty, limited language skills, or mental illness, but they form deep emotional connections with the birds. #Quote by Nathanael Johnson
Connections quotes by Michael Kosser
#185. [Non-performing songwriters] climb the mountain the first time, take their successes in stride, and when they tumble down the mountain, they just consider the tumble part of their profession and don't even waste time mourning their slump. They continue to write, make new connections, and move forward toward a new round of success. #Quote by Michael Kosser

#186. I'm very tech-forward. However, I also think hitting the pause button is not a bad thing, and really connecting with people one-to-one viscerally, having a connection with someone, is really important. #Quote by Ashton Kutcher
Connections quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#187. If Checker Charley was out to make chumps out of men, he could damn well fix his own connections. Paul looks after his own circuits; let Charley do the same. Those who live by electronics, die by electronics. Sic semper tyrannis." He gathered up the bills from the table. "Good night. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut

Connections quotes by Tom Peters
#190. It boils down to studenthood-in-perpetuity / curiosity-in-perpetuity / applied fanatic restlessness. That is, a belief that life is ONE BIG LEARNING EXPERIENCE. Something mysterious happens to a curious, fully engaged mind - and it happens as often as not, subconsciously. Strange little sparks are set off, connections made, insights triggered. The results: an exponentially increased ability to tune up / reinvent / WOW-ize today's project at work. #Quote by Tom Peters
Connections quotes by Gwendolyn Womack
#191. The brain is its own galaxy, with more cells than stars in the Milky Way. The most powerful organ in the body, it rivals any supercomputer, processing 90,000 to 150,000 thoughts a day through billions of neurons and trillions of synaptic connections. Now that we have found a pathway to retrieving memories that before were inaccessible, we are perfecting its function too quickly. #Quote by Gwendolyn Womack
Connections quotes by Ted Nelson
#192. So, the point was to be able to have a medium that would record all the connections and all the structures and all the thoughts that paper could not. Since the computer could hold any structure in any form, this was the way to go. #Quote by Ted Nelson
Connections quotes by James Kalb
#193. Hence arises the belief that traditional culture, which is always based on particular connections, identities, and meanings, is intrinsically oppressive; that "essentialism," the belief that things have a particular nature and significance, is ignorance and bigotry; and that "discrimination", treating one connection as more fitting than another for any non-technological reason, is irrational and wrong. #Quote by James Kalb
Connections quotes by Dana Spiotta
#194. You're trying to make the language work, and your subconscious is being allowed to make the deeper, more profound connections. It's much better than going at it all frontally. But you can't conjure it in an intellectual way; it has to come out of another engagement, a more intuitive engagement. Revision is where the intellectual, analytical work happens. At least for me. #Quote by Dana Spiotta
Connections quotes by Judith Butler
#195. Indeed it may be only by risking the incoherence of identity that connection is possible. #Quote by Judith Butler
Connections quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#196. We need to be looking for the seed of life in another person, and letting the presence or the absence of it determine whom we step closer towards and whom we back away from. The seed of life. You can feel it in the middle of your chest, connecting to the middle of their chest, it tells you there is life for you waiting on the path with them. And when it's not there, there is no path of life for you together, let go of them and turn elsewhere. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Connections quotes by Olivier J. Blanchard
#197. The next step in the process is to measure the impact that these increases in reach have on your number of new transacting customers. The secret to a company's reach strategy lies in the program's ability not only to acquire fans, followers, subscribers and connections, but to convert them through its use of social media into transacting customers. #Quote by Olivier J. Blanchard
Connections quotes by Robert Greene
#198. The human mind is naturally creative, constantly looking to make associations and connections between things and ideas. It wants to explore, to discover new aspects of the world, and to invent. To express this creative force is our greatest desire, and the stifling of it the source of our misery. What kills the creative force is not age or a lack of talent, but our own spirit, our own attitude. We become too comfortable with the knowledge we have gained in our apprenticeships. We grow afraid of entertaining new ideas and the effort that this requires. to think more flexibly entails a risk-we could fail and be ridiculed. We prefer to live with familiar ideas and habits of thinking, but we pay a steep price for this: our minds go dead from the lack of challenge and novelty; we reach a limit in our field and lose control over our fate because we become replaceable. #Quote by Robert Greene
Connections quotes by Jon Jones
#199. I think part of what people are responding to with Lambeau Field is that it's a solid culture. There's so much committed to what hockey means and that's how we feel about football. It's just a great connection between the culture of football and the culture of hockey. #Quote by Jon Jones
Connections quotes by Jean-Marie Le Pen
#200. In recent years - before the intifada - there were three or four incidents of anti-Semitism a year, and that's out of 18 million crimes and violations of the law. #Quote by Jean-Marie Le Pen
