Events quotes by Washington Irving
#1. How we delight to build our recollections upon some basis of reality,
a place, a country, a local habitation! how the events of life, as we look back upon them, have grown into the well-remembered background of the places where they fell upon us! Here is some sunny garden or summer lane, beautified and canonized forever, with the flood of a great joy; and here are dim and silent places,
rooms always shadowed and dark to us, whatever they may be to others,
where distress or death came once, and since then dwells forevermore. #Quote by Washington Irving
Events quotes by Ayn Rand
#2. I write - and read - for the sake of the story ... My basic test for any story is: 'Would I want to meet these characters and observe these events in real life? Is this story an experience worth living through for its own sake? Is the pleasure of contemplating these characters an end itself? #Quote by Ayn Rand
Events quotes by Nostradamus
#3. The Antichrist will be the infernal prince again for the third and last time ... so many evils shall be committed by the means of Satan, the infernal Prince, that almost the entire world shall be found undone and desolate. Before these events happen, many rare birds will cry in the air, 'Now! Now!' and sometime later will vanish. #Quote by Nostradamus
Events quotes by Robin S. Sharma
#4. Never regret your past. Rather,
embrace it as the teacher that it is. #Quote by Robin S. Sharma
Events quotes by Wright Thompson
#5. Keeping up with Urban Meyer is more of an Olympic event than handball. #Quote by Wright Thompson
Events quotes by Charles Dickens
#6. Year last past (supernaturally deficient in originality) rapped out theirs. Mere messages in the earthly order of events had lately come to the English Crown and People, from a congress of British subjects in America: which, strange #Quote by Charles Dickens
Events quotes by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
#7. I found myself thinking that the Quran is not a holy document. It is a historical record, written by humans. It is one version of events, as perceived by the men who wrote it 150 years after the Prophet Muhammad died. And it is a very tribal and Arab version of events. It spreads a culture that is brutal, bigoted, fixated on controlling women, and harsh in war. #Quote by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Events quotes by Johan Huizinga
#8. When the world was half a thousand years younger all events had much sharper outlines than now. The distance between sadness and joy, between good and bad fortune, seemed to be much greater than for us; every experience had that degree of directness and absoluteness which joy and sadness still have in the mind of a child #Quote by Johan Huizinga
Events quotes by Edgar Cantero
#9. You're reversing causality. Dreams don't trigger events-events trigger dreams; our experiences feed our minds. #Quote by Edgar Cantero
Events quotes by Richard Lloyd
#10. Rock is stronger than any misguided theories of cultural events. It's bigger than that. #Quote by Richard Lloyd
Events quotes by Gary Weiss
#11. Humiliating events have a way of capturing the public's imagination. So it has been since antiquity, when gladiators were pitted against each other and the legions of Spartacus were crucified in endless rows on the way to Rome. #Quote by Gary Weiss
Events quotes by James Madison
#12. A universal peace, it is to be feared, is in the catalogue of events, which will never exist but in the imaginations of visionary philosophers, or in the breasts of benevolent enthusiasts. #Quote by James Madison
Events quotes by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
#13. For it is only framed in space that beauty blooms. Only in space are events and objects and people unique and significant-and therefore beautiful. A tree has significance if one sees it against the empty face of sky. A note in music gains significance from the silences on either side. A candle flowers in the space of night. Even small and casual things take on significance if they are washed in space, like a few autumn grasses in one corner of an Oriental painting, the rest of the page bare. #Quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Events quotes by Paul Valery
#14. Every man expects some miracle - either from his mind or from his body or from someone else or from events. #Quote by Paul Valery
Events quotes by Terence McKenna
#15. What is important is to understand the true boundaries of reality, not the probable boundaries of possible future events. Although boundary conditions operate on the future, they are probabilistic constraints, not absolutely determined fact. We assume that ten minutes hence, the room we are in will still exist. It is a boundary condition that will define the next ten minutes in our space/time coordinate. But we cannot know who will be in the room ten minutes hence; that is free to be determined. One may ask if we can really know that the room will exist at any future moment. This is where induction enters the picture, since in truth we cannot know with certainty. There is no absolutely rigorous way of establishing that. But we can make the inductive leap of faith that has to do with accumulated experience. We project that the existence of the room will remain a boundary condition, but in principle in the next ten minutes there could be an earthquake and this building might not be left standing. However, for that to happen, the boundary condition will have to be radically disrupted in some unexpected and improbable manner. What is so curious is that such a thing could occur. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Events quotes by Judy Blunt
#16. I came to recognize the landscape of my life in the lives of many women. Their stories and the places they spoke of spanned a world beyond my experience, from mill towns to suburbs, from logging camps to ethnic neighborhoods, from inner cities to Indian reservations. Few shared my place of origin or the events of my life, but many, it seems, shared my experience. Listening to their stories, I came to understand how women can be isolated by circumstances as well as by distance, and how our experiences, though geographically distinct, often translated into the same feelings. Away from the physical presence of my past, I found it easy to argue that what mattered most was the story, the truth of what we tell ourselves, the versions we pass along to our daughters. But as I stood in the living room of my rock house that afternoon, I was again reminded of the enormous power of this prairie, its silence and the whisper I made inside it. I had forgotten how easily one person can be lost here. #Quote by Judy Blunt
Events quotes by Guy Gavriel Kay
#17. Some writers later, describing the events of that night and day, wrote that Wan'yen of the Altai had seen a spirit-dragon of the river and become afraid. Writers do that sort of thing. They like dragons in their tales. #Quote by Guy Gavriel Kay
Events quotes by Ilya Ehrenburg
#18. I was right when I said a very long time ago that our age would leave few living documents behind it: it was rare for anyone to keep a diary, letters were short and businesslike--"I'm alive and well"--and few memoirs were written. There are many reasons for this. Let me mention just one, not perhaps recognized by everybody: we were too often at loggerheads with our own past to give it proper thought. Within the half-century, our ideas on people and events have changed many times; conversations were broken off in mid-sentence; thoughts and feelings could not but be affected by circumstances. #Quote by Ilya Ehrenburg
Events quotes by William Shakespeare
#19. One of the strangest events, however, happened in the first year of Elizabeth (1558), when dyed Sir Thomas Cheney, Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports, of whom it is reported for a certain, that his pulse did beat more than three quarters of an hour after he was dead, as strongly as if he had been still alive. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Events quotes by Peter L. Bernstein
#20. So we pour in data from the past to fuel the decision-making mechanisms created by our models, be they linear or nonlinear. But therein lies the logician's trap: past data from real life constitute a sequence of events rather than a set of independent observations, which is what the laws of probability demand.[...]It is in those outliers and imperfections that the wildness lurks. #Quote by Peter L. Bernstein
Events quotes by Leif Enger
#21. Let me say something about that word: miracle. For too long it's been used to characterize things or events that, though pleasant, are entirely normal. Peeping chicks at Easter time, spring generally, a clear sunrise after an overcast week
a miracle, people say, as if they've been educated from greeting cards. #Quote by Leif Enger
Events quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#22. It is perhaps no use now to reply to your actual words; for what I could say about your disposition to doubt or about your inability to bring your outer and inner life into harmony, or about anything else that oppresses you - : it is always what I have said before: always the wish that you might be able to find patience enough in yourself to endure, and single-heartedness enough to believe; that you might win increasing trust in what is difficult, and in your solitude among other people. And for the rest, let life happen to you. Believe me: life is right, at all events. And #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Events quotes by Richard Rohr
#23. Famine, poverty, abuse, you can't keep that all blocked out. If you let those things teach you, influence you, change you, those are the events that transition you without you even knowing it to become more compassionate. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Events quotes by Jane Smiley
#24. We sort of read two or three big newspapers but we don't get the flavor of the local events, the local news as much. #Quote by Jane Smiley
Events quotes by Poul Anderson
#25. In the intricate and mutable space-time geometry at the black hole, in-falling matter and energy interacted with the virtualities of the vacuum in ways unknown to the flatter cosmos beyond it. Quasi-stable quantum states appeared, linked according to Schrodinger's wave functions and their own entanglement, more and more of them, intricacy compounding until it amounted to a set of codes. The uncertainty principle wrought mutations; variants perished or flourished; forms competed, cooperated, merged, divided, interacted; the patterns multiplied and diversified; at last, along one fork on a branch of the life tree, thought budded.
That life was not organic, animal and vegetable and lesser kingdoms, growing, breathing, drinking, eating, breeding, hunting, hiding; it kindled no fires and wielded no tools; from the beginning, it was a kind of oneness. An original unity differentiated itself into countless avatars, like waves on a sea. They arose and lived individually, coalesced when they chose by twos or threes or multitudes, reemerged as other than they had been, gave themselves and their experiences back to the underlying whole. Evolution, history, lives eerily resembled memes in organic minds.
Yet quantum life was not a series of shifting abstractions. Like the organic, it was in and of its environment. It acted to alter its quantum states and those around it: action that manifested itself as electronic, photonic, and nuclear events. Its domain was no more shadowy to #Quote by Poul Anderson
Events quotes by Stephen King
#26. Time, Eddie had decided during this period, was in large part created by external events. When a lot of interesting shit was happening, time seemed to go by fast. If you got stuck with nothing but the usual boring shit, it slowed down. And when everything stopped happening, time apparently quit altogether. Just packed up and went to Coney Island. Weird but true. #Quote by Stephen King
Events quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#27. The soul knows only the soul; the web of events is the flowing robe in which she is clothed. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Events quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#28. What is memory but the repository of things doomed to be forgotten, so you must have History. You must have labor to invent History. Being faithful to all that happens to you of significance, recording days, dates, events, names, sights not relying merely upon memory which fades like a Polaroid print where you see the memory fading before your eyes like time itself retreating. #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Events quotes by Alfons Heck
#29. It is absolutely correct to say that if you can't learn from the events of Nazi Germany, you will not be able to grasp the ... danger of the radical Muslim world today. You are simply hiding. #Quote by Alfons Heck
Events quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#30. Given the unattainability of perfect robustness, we need a mechanism by which the system regenerates itself continuously by using, rather than suffering from, random events, unpredictable shocks, stressors, and volatility. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Events quotes by Jill Douglas
#31. I would say go for it because it is a fantastic job. It's a wonderful opportunity to go and get involved with sport at whatever level. What I would say is, if you can, go and work with your local radio station covering local sporting events. #Quote by Jill Douglas
Events quotes by Susane Colasanti
#32. Too bad Einstein's dead. I'm sure he would have appreciated my latest discovery
within the space-time continuum.The closer you are to experiencing a monumental event, the longer time
stretches out. It makes you feel alone #Quote by Susane Colasanti
Events quotes by Mike Jay
#33. We are now edging across the boundary - always a porous one - between self-justification and fantasy. Matthews' story is by no means a complete fantasy: we can recognise every event. But the frame of reference is somehow shrinking, and momentous world events being rewritten around the actions of a minor player. #Quote by Mike Jay
Events quotes by Debbie Ford
#34. The Toltec tradition tells us that we surrender a portion of our life force when we dwell on any unhealed wounding event from our past. The unprocessed emotions surrounding these events burden us and weigh heavily on our hearts. They must be dealt with if we want access to all of our vitality. Ultimately, what we will find is that forgiveness is the key to reclaiming all the life force locked in past hurt. #Quote by Debbie Ford
Events quotes by Kristine Carlson
#35. All pain in life comes from wishing things were different than they are. Conversely, peace and happiness must come from accepting life as it is and breaking through the barriers of illusion to do so ... All things that we label good or bad often hold in them surprises if we stay open. Each of us has choice in how we interpret life's events and in this way we are each responsible for our own reality. #Quote by Kristine Carlson
Events quotes by St. Francis De Sales
#36. How do you love yourself? Is it a love which concerns this life chiefly? Is so, you will desire to abide here forever, and you will diligently seek your worldly establishment - but if the love you bear yourself has a heavenward tendency, you will long or, at all events, you will be ready to go hence whenever it may please our Lord. #Quote by St. Francis De Sales
Events quotes by John Sentamu
#37. As the week's events on reality television demonstrate, there is an ugly underbelly in society only too ready to point the finger at the foreigner, or those who might not fit in. [on celeb big brother #Quote by John Sentamu
Events quotes by Jacqui Stedmon
#38. Narratives are the primary way in which we make sense of our lives, as opposed to, for example schema,cognition, beliefs, constructs. Definition of narrative include the important element of giving meaning to events and experiences over time by connecting them as a developing, continuing story. #Quote by Jacqui Stedmon
Events quotes by Alfred De Vigny
#39. What it values most of all is the sum total of events and the advance of civilization, which carries individuals along with it; but, indifferent to details, it cares less to have them real than noble or, rather, grand and complete. #Quote by Alfred De Vigny
Events quotes by Gary W. Deddo
#40. When horrible life-shattering things take place, especially in our relationships, these events become central to our experience and most everything else is viewed in their light, God included. You may have your #Quote by Gary W. Deddo
Events quotes by Ilya Ehrenburg
#41. To sit indoors was silly. I postponed the search for Savchenko and Ludmila till the next day and went wandering about Paris. The men wore bowlers, the women huge hats with feathers. On the café terraces lovers kissed unconcernedly - I stopped looking away. Students walked along the boulevard St. Michel. They walked in the middle of the street, holding up traffic, but no one dispersed them. At first I thought it was a demonstration - but no, they were simply enjoying themselves. Roasted chestnuts were being sold. Rain began to fall. The grass in the Luxembourg gardens was a tender green. In December! I was very hot in my lined coat. (I had left my boots and fur cap at the hotel.) There were bright posters everywhere. All the time I felt as though I were at the theatre.

I have lived in Paris off and on for many years. Various events, snatches of conversation have become confused in my memory. But I remember well my first day there: the city electrified my. The most astonishing thing is that is has remained unchanged; Moscow is unrecognizable, but Paris is still as it was. When I come to Paris now, I feel inexpressibly sad - the city is the same, it is I who have changed. It is painful for me to walk along the familiar streets - they are the streets of my youth. Of course, the fiacres, the omnibuses, the steam-car disappeared long ago; you rarely see a café with red velvet or leather settees; only a few pissoirs are left - the rest have gone into hiding underground. #Quote by Ilya Ehrenburg
Events quotes by J.T. Geissinger
#42. 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
Events quotes by Helen Oyeyemi
#43. It was much more difficult to be alarmed by the events of a day that was almost over. #Quote by Helen Oyeyemi
Events quotes by Agatha Christie
#44. Curious, sometimes, how one's thoughts seemed to swing in a kaleidoscope. It happened to me now. A bewildering shuffling and reshuffling of memories, of events. Then the mosaic settled into its true pattern. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Events quotes by Billy Graham
#45. [Jesus Christ] is the Lord of history. Nothing is taking God by surprise. Events are moving rapidly toward some sort of climax ... when His Son, Jesus Christ, returns to be rightful Ruler of the world. #Quote by Billy Graham
Events quotes by Horace Smith
#46. Good advice is one of those injuries which a good man ought, if possible, to forgive, but at all events to forget at once. #Quote by Horace Smith
Events quotes by Max Tegmark
#47. In infinite space, even the most unlikely events must take place somewhere. #Quote by Max Tegmark
Events quotes by Matt Ridley
#48. The influence upon our intelligence of events that happened in the womb is three times as great as anything our parents did to us after our birth. #Quote by Matt Ridley
Events quotes by Antonio R Damasio
#49. The neural basis for the self, as I see it, resides with the continuous reactivation of at least two sets of representations. One set concerns representations of key events in an individual's autobiography, on the basis of which a notion of identity can be reconstructed repeatedly, by partial activation in topologically organized sensory maps ...
In brief, the endless reactivation of updated images about our identity (a combination of memories of the past and of the planned future) constitutes a sizable part of the state of self as I understand it.
The second set of representations underlying the neural self consists of the primordial representations of an individual's body ... Of necessity, this encompasses background body states and emotional states. The collective representation of the body constitute the basis for a "concept" of self, much as a collection of representations of shape, size, color, texture, and taste can constitute the basis for the concept of orange. #Quote by Antonio R Damasio
Events quotes by John Paul Caponigro
#50. To be sure, not all moments are equally fleeting. Some moments last longer than others. And certain events do reoccur more than once and even recur repeatedly. Sometimes you do get more than one chance. Sometimes you don't. It helps to know how long a window of opportunity you have and if you'll get another chance. #Quote by John Paul Caponigro
Events quotes by Susan Wiggs
#51. An event in the present evokes past sensations. But science couldn't explain how a foolish heart had the power to overrule common sense. #Quote by Susan Wiggs
Events quotes by John Green
#52. Nothing happens for a week. I don't mean this figuratively like there is a shortage of significant events. I mean that no things occur. Total stasis. It's sort of heavenly, to tell you the truth #Quote by John Green
Events quotes by Kylie Mansfield
#53. Whispering Echoes, a contemporary fiction with Gothic undertones...

Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we still live…

This is the tale of two women standing at opposite ends of the tunnel of life. Sally Donaldson is at the beginning, whilst Miss Bella Connelly , is at the end.

The story opens in the winter of 1990. Sally is a young woman on the verge of a breakdown, slowly drowning in the sorrow of an unimaginable loss. When her husband sends her to Brackenleigh Manor to recover, she encounters the unconventional healing methods of Miss Bella Connelly.

Sally quickly discovers that the manor itself harbor's its own sorrow, and the secrets that lay within the old groaning house are none other than the sad Whispering Echoes of Miss Bella Connelly's past.

The Story then shifts back to 1939 – Britain on the eve of WW2 – and reveals the secrets and lies that transform Bella, and completely change the lives of all who meet Miss Bella after.

The events that carved and marked Miss Bella's journey finally draw Sally out of her own shadows and back into life.

For it is within Miss Bella's story, that Sally learns that life has a measure that no one can count…

A measure that far outweighs Death… #Quote by Kylie Mansfield
Events quotes by Ron Chernow
#54. In his self-serving view of events, Lee believed that he had performed a prodigious feat, rescuing his overmatched army from danger and organizing an orderly retreat. "'The American troops would not stand the British bayonets," he insisted to Washington. "You damned poltroon," Washington rejoined, "you never tried them!" Always reluctant to resort to profanities, the chaste Washington cursed at Lee "till the leaves shook on the tree," recalled General Scott. "Charming! Delightful! Never have I enjoyed such swearing before or since. #Quote by Ron Chernow
Events quotes by George Orwell
#55. A writer inevitably - and less directly this applies to all the arts - about contemporary events, and his impulse is to tell what he believes to be truth. But no government, no big organisation, will pay for the truth. #Quote by George Orwell
Events quotes by Madame De Stael
#56. The most beautiful landscapes in the world, if they evoke no memory, if they bear no trace of a remarkable event, are uninteresting compared to historic landscapes. #Quote by Madame De Stael
Events quotes by Reynolds Price
#57. A need to tell and hear stories is essential to the species Homo sapiens-second in necessity apparently after nourishment and before love and shelter. Millions survive without love or home, almost none in silence; the opposite of silence leads quickly to narrative, and the sound of story is the dominant sound of our lives, from the small accounts of our day's events to the vast incommunicable constructs of psychopaths. #Quote by Reynolds Price
Events quotes by Joel C. Rosenberg
#58. What if these events the Bible says will happen, happens in our lifetime? #Quote by Joel C. Rosenberg
Events quotes by Henry Kissinger
#59. New methods of accessing and communicating information unite regions as never before and project events globally - but in a manner that inhibits reflection, demanding of leaders that they register instantaneous reactions in a form expressible in slogans. Are we facing a period in which forces beyond the restraints of any order determine the future? #Quote by Henry Kissinger
Events quotes by Brene Brown
#60. We've survived and are surviving events that have torn at our sense of safety with such force that we've experienced them as trauma even if we weren't directly involved. #Quote by Brene Brown
Events quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#61. Look sharply after your own thoughts. They come unlooked for, like a new bird seen on your trees, and, if you turn to your usual task, disappear; and you shall never find that perception again; never, I say-but perhaps years, ages, and I know not what events and worlds my lie between you and its return. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Events quotes by M. Beth Bloom
#62. Because my life is empty window of nothingness punctuated by meaningless details of totally mundane non-events. #Quote by M. Beth Bloom
Events quotes by Allan Lokos
#63. Patience lives in the gap between our experience of an event and our response to that experience. #Quote by Allan Lokos
Events quotes by Erin Kelly
#64. If I waited for a proper occasion to get dressed up I'd never wear half of these clothes. Put on the clothes and you make things happen to match them. It doesn't work the other way around. #Quote by Erin Kelly
Events quotes by Ken Watanabe
#65. The King struggles to work with other countries. It's a warrior's concern, and as current events [demonstrate], the challenges in working with international partners are very serious and far from comedic. #Quote by Ken Watanabe
Events quotes by Bill Bradley
#66. We need to get beyond the politics of the moment, the deficit of the hour, the military count of the day, the numbers that rarely shape events. Our long-term interests must be in people and in the values of democracy and individual liberty. #Quote by Bill Bradley
Events quotes by Frithjof Schuon
#67. The annoyances or adversities that come to man always have three causes: man himself, the world, God. Depending on the point of view adopted, we may take into consideration one or another of these causes, but we cannot deny any of them.
Man is the author of his misfortune to the extent it is experienced as suffering; the world is its author to the extent the misfortune seeks to keep man in cosmic illusion; and God is the Author to the extent the misfortune comes to man as a sanction, though also as a purification, hence a trial.
The same thing is true mutatis mutandis of happy events: we can never say they do not come from God or that they do not come from the cosmic surroundings or that they do not result from our own nature. These events are also trials in their character of temptation; the corresponding virtue is renunciation or detachment (zuhd). The spiritual "traveler" (sālik) should be not only "patient" (sabūr) but also "detached" (zāhid). #Quote by Frithjof Schuon
Events quotes by Karlheinz Stockhausen
#68. No, what is important is neither linearity or non-linearity, but the change, the degree of change from something that doesn't move to other events with different tempos in particular. #Quote by Karlheinz Stockhausen
Events quotes by Jean Shinoda Bolen
#69. Synchronistic events offer us perceptions that may be useful in our psychological and spiritual growth and may reveal to us, through intuitive knowledge, that our lives have meaning. #Quote by Jean Shinoda Bolen
Events quotes by Laurie Colwin
#70. That family glaze of common references, jokes, events, calamities-that sense of a family being like a kitchen midden: layer upon layer of the things daily life is made of. The edifice that lovers build is by comparison delicate and one-dimensional. #Quote by Laurie Colwin
Events quotes by Craig Ferguson
#71. A dozen swimming events have already been completed in the Olympic competition. I wonder where they got the name 'Speedo.' It doesn't sound like a bathing suit, it sounds like a breakfast cereal for meth addicts. #Quote by Craig Ferguson
Events quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#72. Joseph Stiglitz, with two colleagues, the Orszag brothers (Peter and Jonathan), looked at the very same Fannie Mae. They assessed, in a report, that "on the basis of historical experience, the risk to the government from a potential default on GSE debt is effectively zero."* Supposedly, they ran simulations - but didn't see the obvious. They also said that the probability of a default was found to be "so small that it is difficult to detect." It is statements like these and, to me, only statements like these (intellectual hubris and the illusion of understanding of rare events) that caused the buildup of these exposures to rare events in the economy. This is the Black Swan problem that I was fighting. This is Fukushima. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Events quotes by Julio Olalla
#73. The eyes that see the soul are different from the eyes that see the self. We see soul when we are in the mystery. We see self when we are in the events. The coach must have eyes for both. #Quote by Julio Olalla
Events quotes by Charles Sturridge
#74. I believe in fairy tales. They are the basis of all our performance of storytelling and film-making - when we twist the real events of the world into something that offers us hope - and I believe in that. #Quote by Charles Sturridge
Events quotes by Paul Delano Butler
#75. Criminal justice is what happens after a complicated series of events has gone bad. It is the end result of failure
the failure of a group of people that sometimes includes, but is never limited to, the accused person. #Quote by Paul Delano Butler
Events quotes by Osip Mandelstam
#76. One cannot launch a new history - the idea is altogether unthinkable; there would not be the continuity and tradition. Tradition cannot be contrived or learned. In its absence one has, at the best, not history but 'progress' - the mechanical movement of a clock hand, not the sacred succession of interlinked events. #Quote by Osip Mandelstam
Events quotes by Vincent Van Gogh
#77. It is only right and proper to be moved by the Bible, but present-day reality has so strong a hold over us that even when we try to imagine the past the minor events in our lives immediately wrench us out of our musings, and our own adventures throw us back irrevocably upon our personal feelings - joy, boredom, suffering, anger, or a smile. #Quote by Vincent Van Gogh
Events quotes by Oswald Spengler
#78. Is there a logic of history? Is there, beyond all the casual and incalculable elements of the separate events, something that we may call a metaphysical structure of historic humanity, something that is essentially independent of the outward forms - social, spiritual and political - which we see so clearly? #Quote by Oswald Spengler
Events quotes by Kate Nash
#79. I love reading books, I love the way they feel and getting through it. It's like an event! #Quote by Kate Nash
Events quotes by Mike Klepper
#80. Religious faith is by nature the most fundamental set of beliefs that one can have. It is how a believer views the world, and is how the believer judges himself as well as the other people, things, and events in that world. It colors everything about them. It is for this reason that people who adopt a faith out of convenience appear so phony, and why it is simply not possible for an individual to have a "religion d'jour. #Quote by Mike Klepper
Events quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#81. The events of the world can have no separate life from the world. And yet the world itself can have no temporal view of things. It can have no cause to favor certain enterprises over others. The passing of armies and the passing of sands in the desert are one. There is no favoring, you see. How could there be? At whose behest? This man did not cease to believe in God. Nor did he come to have some modern view of God. There was God and there was the world. He knew that the world would forget him but that God could not. And yet that was the very thing he wished for. #Quote by Cormac McCarthy
Events quotes by Massey H. Shepherd
#82. The Gospel is not presented to mankind as an argument about religious principals. Nor is it offered as a philosophy of life. Christianity is a witness to certain facts; to events that have happened, to hopes that have been fulfilled, to realities that have been experienced, to a Person who has lived and died and been raised from the dead to reign forever. #Quote by Massey H. Shepherd
Events quotes by Mariah Nelson
#83. Too often girls accept that of course the boys will get better lighting and seating at their sports events, of course the football team will get more attention, privileges, and space in the yearbook. We need to teach girls to look around and notice when they're being treated like second-class citizens, and then to insist on equal treatment. #Quote by Mariah Nelson
Events quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
#84. We build up the feeling of insecurity or security by how we think. If in our thoughts we constantly fix attention upon sinister expectations of dire events that might happen, the result will be constantly to feel insecure. And what is even more serious is the tendency to create, by the power of thought, the very condition we fear. #Quote by Norman Vincent Peale
Events quotes by Lee Gutkind
#85. The word 'creative' refers simply to the use of literary craft in presenting nonfiction - that is, factually accurate prose about real people and events - in a compelling, vivid manner. To put it another way, creative nonfiction writers do not make things up; they make ideas and information that already exist more interesting and, often, more accessible. #Quote by Lee Gutkind
Events quotes by Jenny Lawson
#86. I control it by being painfully honest about just how crazy I am. I control it by allowing myself to hide in bathrooms and under tables during important events. And sometimes I control it by letting it control me, because I have no other choice. #Quote by Jenny Lawson
Events quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#87. O time, swift robber of all created things, how many kings, how many nations hast thou undone, and how many changes of states and of various events have happened since the wondrous forms of this fish perished here in this cavernous and winding recess. Now destroyed by time thou liest patiently in this confined space with bones stripped and bare; serving as a support and prop for the superimposed mountain. #Quote by Leonardo Da Vinci
Events quotes by Don Mihsill
#88. I do not know if this is love
or what love is
or if love's a thing, if it can be
worn like an old coat, or felt
like harsh fabric on naked flesh, or
if it is a sensation, like that first time
the brakes of my bike failed while riding downhill or
the climax of masturbation, or
if love is an invention, and we all
manufacture our own versions -
some bright, some dull, some marbled,
but all with labels and stickers
that say: this is love.

I do not know what love is
or if I can say what I think love is,
could be or should be. If we were
to ever sit on the marble floor,
on one of those dry, electricity free, 45 degree
Delhi nights, sharing a drink of Old Monk's
and I were to tell you that this is love,
slap me for I would either be drunk or a liar.
and if i were drunk, I won't be drunk on love or your loving
for I don't know what love is or if it can be known.

Maybe, one night, after thirty years of searching
for what love means, we will sit outside -
you and I -
amidst the debris of our meanderings,
our bent backs resting
on the rusted iron railing,
our skin pimpled, throats scratched
from prayers uttered to absent gods and
we would be in love and believe that love is this:

love is all the spaces, non-events,
the unspoken words and everything
in between the first second of these
thirty years #Quote by Don Mihsill
Events quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#89. So far are we generally from thinking what we often say of the shortness of life, that at the time when it is necessarily shortest we form projects which we delay to execute, indulge such expectations as nothing but along train of events can gratify, and suffer those passions to gain upon us which are only excusable in the prime of life. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Events quotes by Halford Mackinder
#90. For the first time we can perceive something of the real proportion of features and events on the stage of the whole world, and may seek a formula which shall express certain aspects, at any rate, of geographical causation in universal history. #Quote by Halford Mackinder
Events quotes by Thomas Merton
#91. Memory is corrupted and ruined by a crowd of memories. If I am going to have a true memory, there are a thousand things that must first be forgotten. Memory is not fully itself when it reaches only into the past. A memory that is not alive to the present does not remember the here and now, does not remember its true identity, is not memory at all. He who remembers nothing but facts and past events, and is never brought back into the present, is a victim of amnesia. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Events quotes by Bruce Watson
#92. The volunteers merely dropped in for a summer, then went home to question America. Some would spearhead the events that defined the 1960s - the Berkeley Free Speech Movement, the antiwar movement, the women's movement. Others, spreading ideals absorbed in Mississippi, would be forever skeptical of authority, forever democrats with a small d, and forever touched by this single season of their youth. But first, they had to survive Freedom Summer. #Quote by Bruce Watson
Events quotes by Hans Frank
#93. I did not destroy the 43 volumes of my diary, which report on all these events and the share I had in them; but of my own accord I handed them voluntarily to the officers of the American Army who arrested me. #Quote by Hans Frank
Events quotes by Peter Drucker
#94. In a few hundred years, when the history of our time will be written from a long-term perspective, it is likely that the most important event historians will see is not technology, not the Internet, not e-commerce. It is an unprecedented change in the human condition. For the first time - literally - substantial and rapidly growing numbers of people have choices. For the first time, they will have to manage themselves. And society is totally unprepared for it. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Events quotes by Dan Brown
#95. 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
Events quotes by Samuel Johnson
#96. No man reads a book of science from pure inclination. The books that we do read with pleasure are light compositions, which contain a quick succession of events. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Events quotes by Emmet Fox
#97. DYNAMITE (13 Sticks for Immediate Use - Handle with Care) PLAN tomorrow's work today. Review the events of the day, very briefly before retiring. Keep your voice down. No screamers wanted. Train yourself to write very legibly. Keep your good humor even if you lose your shirt. Defend those who are absent. Hear the other side before you judge. Don't cry over spilt milk. Learn to do one thing as well as anyone on earth can do it. Use your company manners on the family. If you must be rude, let strangers have it. Keep all your goods and possessions neat and orderly. Get rid of things that you do not use. Every day do something to help someone else. Read the Bible every day. These points may seem to be trite and obvious, but each one has hidden behind it, an invincible law of psychology and metaphysics. Try them. #Quote by Emmet Fox
Events quotes by S.R. Reynolds
#98. Just how and when events in Larry Lee's life and mind had collided to create the compulsive sexual predator he'd become would never be clear. Yet #Quote by S.R. Reynolds
Events quotes by Neeraj Narayanan
#99. Whatever we think about the future, whatever plans we make, however, we foresee certain events happening, there is some force out there that can completely change all of that. Travelling, it probably gives you more opportunities to be surprised. Do it for enough time, for long stretches, and if you are blessed enough, you may learn how to not attempt to anticipate the future, and instead live more in the present, and let the future come to you by itself. #Quote by Neeraj Narayanan
Events quotes by Rhonda Byrne
#100. When you are feeling happy, and you keep feeling happy, then only happy people, circumstances and events can come into your life. If you feel stressed, then only more stress can come into your life through people, circumstances and events. #Quote by Rhonda Byrne
Events quotes by Missy Mazzoli
#101. If the music is good, and if it makes sense as a strong structure and as a drama, and things happen as a result of what happened before, not just as a string of unrelated events, then the question doesn't come up. #Quote by Missy Mazzoli
Events quotes by Hillary Clinton
#102. Several people have told me that one of the most meaningful events they could attend would be something at the White House with their children. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Events quotes by Ian McEwan
#103. She would simply wait on the bridge, calm and obstinate, until events, real events, not her own fantasies, roe to her challenge, and dispelled her insignificance. #Quote by Ian McEwan
Events quotes by Hugh Laurie
#104. Pain is an event. It happens to you, and you deal with it in whatever way you can. #Quote by Hugh Laurie
Events quotes by Priscilla Shirer
#105. If I were your enemy, I'd use every opportunity to bring old wounds to mind, as well as the people, events, and circumstances that caused them. I'd try to ensure that your heart was hardened with anger and bitterness. Shackled through unforgiveness. #Quote by Priscilla Shirer
Events quotes by Jill Thrussell
#106. Deep within he knew it was too late however as his heart sank to the floor and rooted him to the ground steadfast and immovable as he despaired over why he couldn't foresee or predict when the women he loved were departing and committing themselves to other people, the pattern and chain of events was all too familiar, he'd been here before and it was a destination he had no desire to visit again cut his as Jade's departure cut his heart as brutally as he'd been wounded when Cherise had abandoned him. #Quote by Jill Thrussell
Events quotes by Dervla Murphy
#107. Buying a bicycle is a momentous event, akin to marriage: you are acquiring a partner. #Quote by Dervla Murphy
Events quotes by Epictetus
#108. Ask yourself: Does this appearance (of events) concern the things that are within my own control or those that are not? If it concerns anything outside your control, train yourself not to worry about it. #Quote by Epictetus
Events quotes by Epictetus
#109. It is not events that disturb people, it is their judgements concerning them. #Quote by Epictetus
Events quotes by Roy T. Bennett
#110. We don't truly appreciate what we have until it's gone… We don't really appreciate something until we have experienced some events; we don't really appreciate our parents until we ourselves have become parents. Be grateful for what you have now, and nothing should be taken for granted. #Quote by Roy T. Bennett
Events quotes by Jason Christopher Hartley
#111. I'm obsessed with trying to recount events as accurately and honestly as possible, but in practice the only thing I'm really any good at is telling you how I feel. #Quote by Jason Christopher Hartley
Events quotes by David Chiles
#112. It didn't happen without a selfie. It's good Netiquette to take safe pictures of thy self at events. NetworkEtiquette.net #Quote by David Chiles
Events quotes by Michael Crichton
#113. All right," Malcolm said. "Let's go back to the beginning." He paused, staring at the ceiling. "Physics has had great success at describing certain kinds of behavior: planets in orbit, spacecraft going to the moon, pendulums and springs and rolling balls, that sort of thing. The regular movement of objects. These are described by what are called linear equations, and mathematicians can solve those equations easily. We've been doing it for hundreds of years." "Okay," Gennaro said. "But there is another kind of behavior, which physics handles badly. For example, anything to do with turbulence. Water coming out of a spout. Air moving over an airplane wing. Weather. Blood flowing through the heart. Turbulent events are described by nonlinear equations. They're hard to solve - in fact, they're usually impossible to solve. So physics has never understood this whole class of events. Until about ten years ago. The new theory that describes them is called chaos theory. #Quote by Michael Crichton
Events quotes by Tony Robbins
#114. We are the only beings on the planet who lead such rich internal lives that it's not the events that matter most to us, but rather, it's how we interpret those events that will determine how we think about ourselves and how we will act in the future. #Quote by Tony Robbins
Events quotes by Louis L'Amour
#115. Historical novels are, without question, the best way of teaching history, for they offer the human stories behind the events and leave the reader with a desire to know more. #Quote by Louis L'Amour
Events quotes by Abraham Pais
#116. I introduce the subject of fine structure with a mini-calendar of events. ...

Winter 1914-15. Sommerfeld computes relativistic orbits for hydrogen-like atoms. Pashcen, aware of these studies, carefully investigates fine structures, ....

January 6, 1916. Sommerfeld announces his fine structure formula, citing results to be published by Paschen in support of his answer.

February 1916. Einstein to Sommerfeld: "A revelation!"

March 1916. Bohr to Sommerfeld: "I do not believe ever to have read anything with more joy than your beautiful work."

September 1916. Paschen publishes his work, acknowledging Sommerfeld's "indefatigable efforts. #Quote by Abraham Pais
Events quotes by Steven Pinker
#117. events that occur at random will seem to come in clusters, because it would take a nonrandom process to space them out. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Events quotes by Jane Lynch
#118. I do like to go to movies. I like to be in the theater. I like the event of it. #Quote by Jane Lynch
Events quotes by Nathaniel Hawthorne
#119. Of all the events which constitute a person's biography, there is scarcely one ... to which the world so easily reconciles itself as to his death. #Quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Events quotes by Emilio Komar
#120. When you consider females outfits, there's no end to the options available. Moreover, nowadays developer outfits is becoming inexpensive and cost-effective and hence many females are now dressed in developer use for almost all events. #Quote by Emilio Komar
Events quotes by Lena Dunham
#121. When you're writing a script you have the option to embellish on life or switch the order of events or make it generally more cinematic. I would stick too closely to my own experience and not necessarily think about the fact that it needs to have an event happen. Realising that I could channel my own experience into a story that was slightly more cinematic was a very important moment for me - allowing myself to accept that the kind of screenwriting I'm doing is a work of fiction. #Quote by Lena Dunham
Events quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#122. Wisdom is looking at life from God's point of view. You look at life's difficulties and tests as God looks at them. You look at family life and child rearing as God looks at them. You interpret current events as God would interpret them. You see the truth even though all around you are deception and lies. #Quote by Charles R. Swindoll
Events quotes by Deepak Chopra
#123. I will practice acceptance. Today I will accept people, situations, circumstances, and events as they occur. I will know that this moment is as it should be, because the whole universe is as it should be. I will not struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment. My acceptance is total and complete. I accept things as they are this moment, not as I wish they were. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Events quotes by John Maynard Keynes
#124. The considerations upon which expectations of prospective yields are based are partly existing facts which we can assume to be known more or less for certain, and partly future events which can only be forecasted with more or less confidence. #Quote by John Maynard Keynes
Events quotes by Roger Ebert
#125. 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
Events quotes by Srully Blotnick
#126. What looks like a loss may be the very event which is subsequently responsible for helping to produce the major achievement of your life #Quote by Srully Blotnick
Events quotes by Yvan Byeajee
#127. Events, circumstances, and experiences arise and pass away. Winning trades, losing trades, fear, greed, sadness, happiness, and eventually your own life. Everything is in a constant flux. Learn to go through it with stability of mind. A meditation practice helps a lot. #Quote by Yvan Byeajee
Events quotes by Howard Zinn
#128. Senator H. V. Johnson said: I believe we should be recreant to our noble mission, if we refused acquiescence in the high purposes of a wise Providence. War has its evils. In all ages it has been the minister of wholesale death and appalling desolation; but however inscrutable to us, it has also been made, by the Allwise Dispenser of events, the instrumentality of accomplishing the great end of human elevation and human happiness ... It is in this view, that I subscribe to the doctrine of manifest destiny. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Events quotes by Ian McDonald
#129. She was theorizing on the Deep State; that enduring Turkish paranoia that the nation really was a conspiracy run by a cabal of generals, judges, industrialists and gangsters. The Taksim Square massacre of three years before, the Kahramanmaraş slaughter of Alevis a few months after, the oil crisis and the enduring economic instability, even the ubiquity of the Grey Wolves nationalist youth movement handing out their patriotic leaflets and defiling Greek Churches: all were links in an accelerating chain of events running through the fingers of the Derin Devlet. To what end? the men asked. Coup, she said, leaning forward, her fingers pursed. It was then that Georgios Ferentinou adored her. The classic profile, the strength of her jaw and fine cheekbones. The way she shook her head when the men disagreed with her, how her bobbed, curling hair swayed. The way she would not argue but set her lips and stared, as if their stupidity was a stubborn offence against nature. Her animation in argument balanced against her marvellous stillness when listening, considering, drawing up a new answer. How she paused, feeling the regard of another, then turned to Georgios and smiled.
In the late summer of 1980 Georgios Ferentinou fell in love with Ariana Sinanidis by Meryem Nasi's swimming pool. Three days later, on September 12th, Chief of General Staff Kenan Evren overthrew the government and banned all political activity. #Quote by Ian McDonald
Events quotes by George R R Martin
#130. I hate outlines. I have a broad sense of where the story is going; I know the end, I know the end of the principal characters, and I know the major turning points and events from the books, the climaxes for each book, but I don't necessarily know each twist and turn along the way. That's something I discover in the course of writing and that's what makes writing enjoyable. I think if I outlined comprehensively and stuck to the outline the actual writing would be boring. #Quote by George R R Martin
Events quotes by T. S. Eliot
#131. Let us take the air, in a tobacco trance,
Admire the moments
Discuss the late events,
Correct our watches by the public clocks.
Then sit for half an hour and drink our bocks. #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Events quotes by Asghar Farhadi
#132. It's not some big event that creates the drama, it's the little things of everyday life that bring about that drama. #Quote by Asghar Farhadi
Events quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#133. Dangerous events were transformed over the years into humorous anecdotes; painful moments were modified into sweet tales of innocence. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Events quotes by Phil Collins
#134. There were 'big stars' at the Alamo! Bowie, Crockett! It is a huge political event because it, and the events at Goliad and San Jacinto, changed the look of a map of America. America would be a very different place if Texas had remained Mexican. #Quote by Phil Collins
Events quotes by Agatha Christie
#135. I like a good detective story," he said. "But, you know, they begin in the wrong place! They begin with the murder. But the murder is the end. The story begins long before that - years before sometimes with all the causes and events that bring certain people to a certain place at a certain time on a certain day. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Events quotes by Henry James
#136. When you lay down a proposition which is forthwith controverted, it is of course optional with you to take up the cudgels in its defence. If you are deeply convinced of its truth, you will perhaps be content to leave it to take care of itself; or, at all events, you will not go out of your way to push its fortunes; for you will reflect that in the long run an opinion often borrows credit from the forbearance of its patrons. In the long run, we say; it will meanwhile cost you an occasional pang to see your cherished theory turned into a football by the critics. A football is not, as such, a very respectable object, and the more numerous the players, the more ridiculous it becomes. Unless, therefore, you are very confident of your ability to rescue it from the chaos of kicks, you will best consult its interests by not mingling in the game. #Quote by Henry James
Events quotes by Stephen Leigh
#137. We wanted something in which to believe, as many people on Earth once believed in demons, or in sunken lost continents, in a face on Mars, crop circles, visitations from being on other planets, or God, Buddha, Christ, Allah, and so on. The fact that all of the above were total nonsense didn't change the desire to believe that there was Something Else out there, something that could make sense of chaotic lives and events. #Quote by Stephen Leigh
Events quotes by Christopher Pike
#138. For feeling, not events, is to me the essence of history. #Quote by Christopher Pike
Events quotes by Penelope Cruz
#139. In my everyday life, I just wear jeans, t-shirts and trainers - if I can go barefoot, that's even better. But for the events I have a stylist, and in two hours we have selected a whole outfit. #Quote by Penelope Cruz
Events quotes by Charles Duhigg
#140. Andreasen wanted to know why these people had deviated from their usual patterns. What he discovered has become a pillar of modern marketing theory: People's buying habits are more likely to change when they go through a major life event. When someone gets married, for example, they're more likely to start buying a new type of coffee. When they move into a new house, they're more apt to purchase a different kind of cereal. When they get divorced, there's a higher chance they'll start buying different brands of beer.7.7 Consumers going through major life events often don't notice, or care, that their shopping patterns have shifted. However, retailers notice, and they care quite a bit. #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Events quotes by Lisa Morton
#141. South Africa is the only place in the Southern hemisphere where Halloween is really catching on. They have a lot of sporting events that have made it more popular there. They have motocross and rave celebrations, and they're embracing it as a youth culture thing. #Quote by Lisa Morton
Events quotes by Plato
#142. [Dialogue between Solon and an Egyptian Priest]
In the Egyptian Delta, at the head of which the river Nile divides, there is a certain district which is called the district of Sais [...] To this city came Solon, and was received there with great honour; he asked the priests who were most skilful in such matters, about antiquity, and made the discovery that neither he nor any other Hellene knew anything worth mentioning about the times of old. On one occasion, wishing to draw them on to speak of antiquity, he began to tell about the most ancient things in our part of the world-about Phoroneus, who is called "the first man," and about Niobe; and after the Deluge, of the survival of Deucalion and Pyrrha; and he traced the genealogy of their descendants, and reckoning up the dates, tried to compute how many years ago the events of which he was speaking happened. Thereupon one of the priests, who was of a very great age, said: O Solon, Solon, you Hellenes are never anything but children, and there is not an old man among you. Solon in return asked him what he meant. I mean to say, he replied, that in mind you are all young; there is no old opinion handed down among you by ancient tradition, nor any science which is hoary with age. #Quote by Plato
Events quotes by Jonathan Richman
#143. They played Boston. They played at the Boston Tea Party and through an amazing chain of events I got to hang out with them backstage even though I was underage. #Quote by Jonathan Richman
Events quotes by Mary Jo Bang
#144. Bertrand Russell said, 'Electricity is not a thing like St. Paul's Cathedral; it is a way in which things behave.' And it's not 'they' who say, but Walter Benjamin who said, 'Things are only mannequins and even the great world-historical events are only costumes beneath which they exchange glances with nothingness, with the base and the banal.' In September, 1940, Benjamin died under ambiguous circumstances in the French-Spanish border town of Portbou, while attempting to flee the Nazis. #Quote by Mary Jo Bang
Events quotes by Gertrude Bell
#145. I've been busy with a long memorandum about the whole of our central Arabian relations, which I've just finished. It will now go to all the High and Mighty in every part. One can't do much more than sit and record if one is of my sex, devil take it; one can get the things recorded in the right way and that means, I hope, that unconsciously people will judge events as you think they ought to be judged. But it's small change for doing things, very small change I feel at times. #Quote by Gertrude Bell
Events quotes by Barack Obama
#146. The true test of the American ideal is whether we're able to recognize our failings and then rise together to meet the challenges of our time. Whether we allow ourselves to be shaped by events and history, or whether we act to shape them. Whether chance of birth or circumstance decides life's big winners and losers, or whether we build a community where, at the very least, everyone has a chance to work hard, get ahead, and reach their dreams. #Quote by Barack Obama
Events quotes by Ben Affleck
#147. It's been reinforced to me, and it's a little cliche, but I've learned that you can't make a movie that even works, much less that's good, without really good writing and really good acting. That lesson has led me to not be distracted, so much, by the other stuff going on in filmmaking and to focus on the essence of a story, and the words and the events and the way that those are interpreted by the actors. That philosophy has taken me to a place that I really like. #Quote by Ben Affleck
Events quotes by Tryon Edwards
#148. Let your holidays be associated with great public events, and they may be the life of patriotism as well as a source of relaxation and personal employment. #Quote by Tryon Edwards
Events quotes by Heather Chase
#149. Because none of us is anything but what we remember about ourselves, okay? That's how we arrived at our very worst moment, our rock bottoms, and through all of that, we were also arrive here, today. Recovering. The events to get you here were set in motion long, long ago and you had very, very little to do with them, and it would have been just as easy for you to never arrive here and still be suffering out there, or just to have not existed at all. #Quote by Heather Chase
Events quotes by Vicki Covington
#150. Mornings are fresh like babies, uncontaminated by events. I find them sad for that reason. They're too fragile and naïve. #Quote by Vicki Covington
Events quotes by Paul Virilio
#151. In industrialized warfare, where the representation of events outstripped the presentation of facts, the image was starting to gain sway over the object, time over space. Soon a conflict of strategic and political interpretation would ensue, with radio and then radar completing the picture. #Quote by Paul Virilio
Events quotes by James Hamilton-Paterson
#152. Have you noticed how just trying to impose any sort of chronology on events makes it seem as though a lot of time has been occupied? #Quote by James Hamilton-Paterson
Events quotes by Suze Orman
#153. Many of the good things would never have happened if the bad events hadn't happened first. #Quote by Suze Orman
Events quotes by Susan Cain
#154. INTROVERTS are especially vulnerable to challenges like marital tension, a parent's death, or abuse. They're more likely than their peers to react to these events with depression, anxiety, and shyness. Indeed, about a quarter of Kagan's high-reactive kids suffer from some degree of the condition known as "social anxiety disorder," a chronic and disabling form of shyness. #Quote by Susan Cain
Events quotes by Talia
#155. Everything had happened so fast, I was not sure I had really understood all of the events. My owner Mala said I was not supposed to understand, since I was just a toy. And her mom, Mrs. Jones, said I was not the sharpest pencil in the box! What ever that meant… #Quote by Talia
Events quotes by Naomi Klein
#156. What has stood out in this wave of early resistance is how the barriers defining who is and who is not an 'activist' or an 'organizer' are completely breaking down. People are organizing mass events who have never organized anything political before. A great many are discovering that, whatever their field of expertise, whether they are lawyers or restaurant workers, they have crucial skills to share in this emerging network of resistance. And wherever they live or work, whether it's a laboratory or a bodega or a law firm or inside the home, they have the power, if they organize with others, to throw a wrench into a dangerous system. #Quote by Naomi Klein
Events quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#157. distinguish hearsay from what we've seen with our own eyes; when we are relating dreams, fairy tales, or past events we could not have witnessed, we use this tense. It is a useful distinction to make as we "remember" our earliest life experiences, our cradles, our baby carriages, our first steps, all as reported by our parents, stories to which we listen with the same rapt attention #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Events quotes by Robin S. Sharma
#158. Every second you dwell on the past you steal from your future. Every minute you spend focusing on your problems you take away from finding your solutions. And thinking about all those things that you wish never happened to you is actually blocking all the things you want to happen from entering into your life. Given the timeless truth that holds that you become what you think about all day long, it makes no sense to worry about past events or mistakes unless you want to experience them for a second time. Instead, use the lessons you have learned from your past to rise to a whole new level of awareness and enlightenment. #Quote by Robin S. Sharma
Events quotes by James Baldwin
#159. The occurrence of an event is not the same thing as knowing what it is that one has lived through. Most people had not lived
nor could it, for that matter, be said that they had died
through any of their terrible events. They had simply been stunned by the hammer. They passed their lives thereafter in a kind of limbo of denied and unexamined pain. The great question that faced him this morning was whether or not had had ever, really, been present at his life. #Quote by James Baldwin
Events quotes by Ansel Adams
#160. Photography is an investigation of both the outer and the inner worlds. The first experiences with the camera involve looking at the world beyond the lens, trusting the instrument will 'capture' something 'seen.' The terms shoot and take are not accidental; they represent an attitude of conquest and appropriation. Only when the photographer grows into perception and creative impulse does the term make define a condition of empathy between the external and the internal events. #Quote by Ansel Adams
Events quotes by Alberto Manguel
#161. I think I read in at least two ways. First, by following, breathlessly, the events and the characters without stopping to notice the details, the quickening pace of reading sometimes hurtling the story beyond the last page < ... >. Secondly, by careful exploration, scrutinizing the text to understand its ravelled meaning, finding plesasure merely in the sound of the words or in the clues which the words did not wish to reveal, or in what I suspected was hidden deep in the story itself, something too terrible or too marvellous to be looked at. #Quote by Alberto Manguel
Events quotes by David Suzuki
#162. Add together the collective global impact of population, consumption, the global economy, and technology and it is clear how we have become a geological force. Human activity has so disrupted processes on the planet with consequences that what were once called "acts of god" or "natural disasters" now carry the undeniable imprint of our species. We have become almost like gods as we affect natural events such as weather and climate, earthquakes, floods, drought, mega-fires, hurricanes, and tornadoes. Once, our fear of gods acted to restrain human excesses, but now we have ourselves become the gods. #Quote by David Suzuki
Events quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#163. Sometimes the grandest of all events are described in the poverty of a few simple words. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Events quotes by Jean De La Bruyere
#164. The events we most desire do not happen; or, if they do, it is neither in the time nor in the circumstances when they would have given us extreme pleasure. #Quote by Jean De La Bruyere
Events quotes by Andrew Neiderman
#165. Age is a funny thing. People tend to think it can be measured only by time, but events crowd days into weeks, weeks into months, and months into new years. #Quote by Andrew Neiderman
Events quotes by Ludwig Wittgenstein
#166. If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present. #Quote by Ludwig Wittgenstein
Events quotes by Annabeth Gish
#167. What scares me? I kind of believe in ghosts. I believe they can wander around, so that scares me. But the stuff that really scares me are the catastrophic events like my husband or children or my family being harmed, or something like that. #Quote by Annabeth Gish
Events quotes by Connor Franta
#168. I love how pop culture shapes a generation. The trends, fashion and events all play a key part in how we live our present lives, and will mark how we will be remembered in the future. #Quote by Connor Franta
Events quotes by Beth Revis
#169. The first cause of discord is difference. There is no religion on Godspeed. We all speak the same language. We're all monoethnic. And because we are not different, we don't fight. Remember the Crusades I taught you? The genocides? We will never have to worry about those types of horrific events on Godspeed. #Quote by Beth Revis
Events quotes by Elizabeth Hardwick
#170. A murder is a challenge, an embarrassment, to the inner life of the dead one, almost a dishonor, like other violent events that may come upon you without warning. It is not certain that you may not have in some careless or driven way chosen to put yourself in the path of a murderer. #Quote by Elizabeth Hardwick
Events quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#171. The consequences of things are not always proportionate to the apparent magnitude of those events that have produced them. Thus the American Revolution, from which little was expected, produced much; but the French Revolution, from which much was expected, produced little. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Events quotes by Jessica Zafra
#172. 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
Events quotes by Jay Leno
#173. The Democratic Convention is $27 million in debt. They had to cancel the kick-off event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. A speedway is the perfect place for the Democratic Convention. You go around in circles, turn left every few seconds, and you end up right where you started. #Quote by Jay Leno
Events quotes by Euripides
#174. Events will take their course, it is no good of being angry at them; he is happiest who wisely turns them to the best account. #Quote by Euripides
Events quotes by Jedediah McClure
#175. A few years ago, a couple of young men from my church came to our home for dinner. During the course of the dinner, the conversation turned from religion to various world mythologies and we began to play the game of 'Name That Character." To play this game, you pick a category such as famous actors, superheroes or historical characters. In turn, each person describes events in a famous character's life while everyone else tries to guess who the character is. Strategically you try to describe the deeds of a character in such a way that it might fit any number of characters in that category. After three guesses, if no one knows who your character is, then you win.

Choosing the category of Bible Characters, we played a couple of fairly easy rounds with the typical figures, then it was my turn. Now, knowing these well meaning young men had very little religious experience or understanding outside of their own religion, I posed a trick question. I said, "Now my character may seem obvious, but please wait until the end of my description to answer." I took a long breath for dramatic effect, and began, "My character was the son of the King of Heaven and a mortal woman." Immediately both young men smiled knowingly, but I raised a finger asking them to wait to give their responses.

I continued, "While he was just a baby, a jealous rival attempted to kill him and he was forced into hiding for several years. As he grew older, he developed amazing powers. Among these #Quote by Jedediah McClure

Events quotes by Martti Ahtisaari
#177. I saw an advertisement to work for a Swedish institute in Karachi in Pakistan. I had just been offered a permanent assignment, teaching in Oulu. But I felt, 'My God, I am not going to stay here forever.' You know why? Because I was following international events. #Quote by Martti Ahtisaari
Events quotes by Wilhelm Reich
#178. As bitter as it may be, the fact remains: It is the irresponsibleness of masses of people that lies at the basis of fascism of all countries, nations, and races, etc. Fascism is the result of man's distortion over thousands of years. It could have developed in any country or nation. It is not a character trait that is confined specifically to the Germans or Italians. It is manifest in every single individual of the world. The Austrian saying "Da kann man halt nix machen" expresses this fact just as the American saying "Let George do it." That this situation was brought about by a social development which goes back thousands of years does not alter the fact itself. It is man himself who is responsible and not "historical developments." It was the shifting of the responsibility from living man to "historical developments" that caused the downfall of the socialist freedom movements. However, the events of the past twenty years demand the responsibility of the working masses of people.

If we take "freedom" to mean first and foremost the responsibility of each individual to shape personal, occupational, and social existence in a rational way, then it can be said that there is no greater fear than the fear of the creation of general freedom. Unless this basic problem is given complete priority and solved, there will never be a freedom capable of lasting more than one or two generations. #Quote by Wilhelm Reich
Events quotes by Julia Gillard
#179. I know people are looking at what's happening in Washington and then they also look at events in Europe, in Greece and Portugal and other places and worry about that. #Quote by Julia Gillard
Events quotes by Nadia Bolz-Weber
#180. Of course, Mary Magdalene would have very little tolerance for the Christian platitudes and vapid optimism that seem to swirl around these kinds of tragic events. Those platitudes are tempting, but they're nothing but luxuries for people who've never had demons (or at least have never admitted to them). But equally, she would reject nihilism, or the idea that there is no real meaning in life or death - ideas present in so much of postmodernity. Those ideas, too, are luxuries, but they are for those who have never been freed from demons. #Quote by Nadia Bolz-Weber
Events quotes by Arundhati Roy
#181. They would grow up grappling with ways of living with what happened. They would try to tell themselves that in terms of geological time it was an insignificant event. Just a blink of the Earth Woman's eye. That Worse Things had happened. That Worse Things kept happening. But they would find no comfort in the thought. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Events quotes by Mortimer J. Adler
#182. The rules for reading yourself to sleep are easier to follow than are the rules for staying awake while reading. Get into bed in a comfortable position, make sure the light is inadequate enough to cause slight eyestrain, choose a book that is either terribly difficult or terribly boring - in any event, one that you do not really care whether you read or not - and you will be asleep in a few minutes. Those who are experts in relaxing with a book do not have to wait for nightfall. A comfortable chair in the library will do any time #Quote by Mortimer J. Adler
Events quotes by Louise Rosenblatt
#183. The reader brings to the work personality traits, memories of past events, present needs and preoccupations, a particular mood of the moment and a particular physical condition. These and many other elements in a never-to-be-duplicated combination determine his response to the text. #Quote by Louise Rosenblatt
Events quotes by H.W. Mann
#184. We attract people and events into our life. It is not about them. They are only supporting the lessons we need to learn. They are in effect our teachers. Yes, a mind-blowing perspective indeed. We will continue to attract them until we learn the lessons they have brought us. From this perspective the question is not; Why does this keep happening to me? The question becomes; Why do I keep attracting these people and events into my life? What is it about me that needs to change? #Quote by H.W. Mann
Events quotes by Said Sayrafiezadeh
#185. I liked the push and pull of that, between the outer political world and the inner personal lives of the characters. It's also real life ... Many of us are keenly aware of world events, but break your nose and I bet that's the main thing you'd be focused on. #Quote by Said Sayrafiezadeh
Events quotes by Shakti Gawain
#186. When we create something, we always create it first in a thought form. If we are basically positive in attitude, expecting and envisioning pleasure, satisfaction and happiness, we will attract and create people, situations, and events which conform to our positive expectations. #Quote by Shakti Gawain
Events quotes by George Wald
#187. I think if a physician wrote on a death certificate that old age was the cause of death, he'd be thrown out of the union. There is always some final event, some failure of an organ, some last attack of pneumonia, that finishes off a life. No one dies of old age. #Quote by George Wald
Events quotes by Robert Greene
#188. Understand: as an individual you cannot stop the tide of fantasy and escapism sweeping a culture. But you can stand as an individual bulwark to this trend and create power for yourself. You were born with the greatest weapon in all of nature - the rational, conscious mind. It has the power to expand your vision far and wide, giving you the unique capacity to distinguish patterns in events, learn from the past, glimpse into the future, see through appearances. Circumstances are conspiring to dull that weapon and render it useless by turning you inward and making you afraid of reality.
Consider it war. You must fight this tendency as best you can and move in the opposite direction. You must turn outward and become a keen observer of all that is around you. You are doing battle against all the fantasies that are thrown at you. You are tightening your connection to the environment. You want clarity, not escape and confusion. Moving in this direction will instantly bring you power among so many dreamers. #Quote by Robert Greene
Events quotes by Gloria Estefan
#189. There are so many difficult things we're living through in the world today, so many horrible events, but we cannot let them stop us. No matter what happens, I feel you must move forward with optimism and not get totally sideswiped. #Quote by Gloria Estefan
Events quotes by Aldous Huxley
#190. Science may be defined as the reduction of multiplicity to unity. It seeks to explain the endlessly diverse phenomena of nature by ignoring the uniqueness of particular events, concentrating on what they have in common and finally abstracting some kind of "law," in terms of which they make sense and can be effectively dealt with. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Events quotes by Frank  Smith
#191. First, relax. ... And my second helpful hint is that you should not try to memorize anything you read in this book. ... My two words of advice are exemplified in what I call the Russian Novel Phenomenon. Every reader must have experienced that depressing moment about fifty pages into a Russian novel when we realize that we have lost track of all the characters, the variety of names by which they are known, their family relationships and relative ranks in the civil service. At this point we can give in to our anxiety, and start again to read more carefully, trying to memorize all the details on the offchance that some may prove to be important. If such a course is followed, the second reading is almost certain to be more incomprehensible than the first. The probable result: one Russian novel lost forever. But there is another alternative: to read faster, to push ahead, to make sense of what we can and to enjoy whatever we make sense of. And suddenly the book becomes readable, the story makes sense, and we find that we can remember all the important characters and events simply because we know what is important. Any re-reading we then have to do is bound to make sense, because at least we comprehend what is going on and what we are looking for. #Quote by Frank Smith
Events quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#192. I'm not sure what we're doing, to be perfectly honest
but nothing's on fire anymore. And I feel like maybe we've solved something. Even though this is probably just a new problem. #Quote by Rainbow Rowell
Events quotes by Richard Schmid
#193. I see the things and people and events in my daily world as an endless succession of paintings. #Quote by Richard Schmid

Events quotes by Novalis
#195. It is the most capricious prejudice to believe that a human being is denied the capacity to be outside himself, to be consciously beyond the senses. He is capable at any moment of being a suprasensual being. Without this he would not be a citizen of the world - he would be an animal. It is true that under these circumstances reflection, the discovery of oneself - is very difficult, since they are so ceaselessly, so necessarily connected with the change in our other circumstances. But the more conscious of these circumstances we can be, the more lively, powerful, and ample is the conviction which derives from them - the belief in true revelations of the spirit. It is not seeing - hearing - feeling - it is a combination of all three - more than all three - a sensation of immediate certainty - a view of my truest, most actual life - thoughts change into laws - wishes are fulfilled. For the weak person the fact of this moment is an article of faith.

The phenomenon becomes especially striking at the sight of many human forms and faces - particularly so on catching sight of many eyes, expressions, movements - on hearing certain words, reading certain passages - at certain views of life, world, and fate. Very many chance incidents, many natural events, particular times of the day and year bring us such experiences. Certain moods are especially favorable to such revelations. Most last only an instant - few linger - fewest of all remain. In this respect there are great diff #Quote by Novalis

Events quotes by Mark Zuckerberg
#199. Stuff like photos and events and groups - we've built pretty basic versions of those apps to start but they ended up being so much more used because of their social integrations. #Quote by Mark Zuckerberg
Events quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#200. Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
