Expat Living quotes by Barbara Haines Howett
#1. Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, she became a butterfly. #Quote by Barbara Haines Howett
Expat Living quotes by Edward Abbey
#2. Why can't we simply borrow what is useful to us from Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, especially Zen, as we borrow from Christianity, science, American Indian traditions and world literature in general, including philosophy, and let the rest go hang? Borrow what we need but rely principally upon our own senses, common sense and daily living experience. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Expat Living quotes by Witness Lee
#3. The tent was for Abraham's living. Abraham did not take care of his living first. That was secondary. With Abraham, the primary matter [560] was to consecrate everything to God, to worship and serve God, and to have fellowship with God. Only then did Abraham pitch a tent for his living. #Quote by Witness Lee
Expat Living quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#4. But when, as is most often the case, the husband and wife accept the external obligation to live together all their lives and have, by the second month, come to loathe the sight of each other, want to get divorced and yet go on living together, it usually ends in that terrible hell that drives them to drink, makes them shoot themselves, kill and poison each other #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Expat Living quotes by Dick Van Dyke
#5. You can spread jelly on the peanut butter but you can't spread peanut butter on the jelly. #Quote by Dick Van Dyke
Expat Living quotes by Patricia Briggs
#6. It wasn't hard to follow the scent of blood to the living room where the fae had been killed. It had been a violent death, perfect for creating ghosts. #Quote by Patricia Briggs
Expat Living quotes by John Dewey
#7. Collateral learning in the way of formation of enduring attitudes, of likes and dislikes, may be and often is much more important than the spelling lesson or lesson in geography or history that is learned. For these attitudes are fundamentally what count in the future. The most important attitude that can be formed is that of desire to go on learning. If impetus in this direction is weakened instead of being intensified, something much more than mere lack of preparation takes place. The pupil is actually robbed of native capacities which otherwise would enable him [sic] to cope with the circumstances that he meets in the course of his life. We often see persons who have had little schooling and in whose case the absence of set schooling proves to be a positive asset. They have at least retained their native common sense and power of judgement, and its exercise in the actual conditions of living has given them the precious gift of ability to learn from the experiences they have. #Quote by John Dewey
Expat Living quotes by Michael Madsen
#8. My career has been very strange. My career is like a heart monitor. I get involved in a good project now and then to keep things going. And then I make things that I work on that I hope are going to be good so I can make a living and keep a roof over the heads of those little monsters I have in my house. #Quote by Michael Madsen
Expat Living quotes by Erika Lopez
#9. This is stupid. Very, very stupid. I don't even have a tear-stained dog to wave bye to me. But I told everyone I was gonna do this, so I gotta do it... or I will be living a life of feminist-sounding somedays. And I will be more responsible, powerful, and amazing afterward. I will be able to do anything and not self-consciously stare at elevator numbers when the doors close.
I will look the other person in right the eye and nod hello. #Quote by Erika Lopez
Expat Living quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#10. Given the scale of life in the cosmos, one human life is no more than a tiny blip. Each one of us is a just visitor to this planet, a guest, who will only stay for a limited time. What greater folly could there be than to spend this short time alone, unhappy or in conflict with our companions? Far better, surely, to use our short time here in living a meaningful life, enriched by our sense of connection with others and being of service to them. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Expat Living quotes by Sylvia Earle
#11. Look at the bark of a redwood, and you see moss. If you peer beneath the bits and pieces of the moss, you'll see toads, small insects, a whole host of life that prospers in that miniature environment. A lumberman will look at a forest and see so many board feet of lumber. I see a living city. #Quote by Sylvia Earle
Expat Living quotes by Daniel Tosh
#12. I have no real talents. If I could make a living at a normal job, I'm sure I would do that. #Quote by Daniel Tosh
Expat Living quotes by Amish Tripathi
#13. Stability allows a person the freedom of choice, my friend. People can pursue their dreams only when they are living in a society where survival is not threatened on a daily basis. #Quote by Amish Tripathi
Expat Living quotes by Eugene H. Peterson
#14. The task of liturgy is to order the life of the holy community following the text of Holy Scripture. It consists of two movements. First it gets us into the sanctuary, the place of adoration and attention, listening and receiving and believing before God. There is a lot involved, all the parts of our lives ordered to all aspects of the revelation of God in Jesus.

Then it gets us out of the sanctuary into the world into places of obeying and loving ordering our lives as living sacrifices in the world to the glory of God. There is a lot involved, all the parts of our lives out on the street participating in the work of salvation. #Quote by Eugene H. Peterson
Expat Living quotes by Robert Henri
#15. Art tends toward balance, order, judgment of relative values, the laws of growth, the economy of living – very good things for anyone to be interested in. #Quote by Robert Henri
Expat Living quotes by Rene Dubos
#16. To ward off disease or recover health, people as a rule find it easier to depend on healers than to attempt the more difficult task of living wisely. #Quote by Rene Dubos
Expat Living quotes by Edna O'Brien
#17. Fear is a dreadful drawback because it stops us living in the moment. #Quote by Edna O'Brien
Expat Living quotes by William Makepeace Thackeray
#18. No particular motive for living, except the custom and habit of it. #Quote by William Makepeace Thackeray
Expat Living quotes by Deborah D. Johnson
#19. I find joy in life.
I enjoy living it. #Quote by Deborah D. Johnson
Expat Living quotes by Willa Cather
#20. It has long been a tradition among novel writers that a book must end by everybody getting just what they wanted, or if the conventional happy ending was impossible, then it must be a tragedy in which one or both should die. In real life very few of us get what we want, our tragedies don't kill us, but we go on living them year after year, carrying them with us like a scar on an old wound. #Quote by Willa Cather
Expat Living quotes by Adam Clarke
#21. If you go forward in the spirit of the original apostles and followers of Jesus Christ, trusting not in man but in the living God, he will enable you to pull down the strong holds of sin and Satan, and that work by which he is pleased will prosper in your hands. #Quote by Adam Clarke
Expat Living quotes by Haruki Murakami
#22. A giant octopus living way down deep at the bottom of the ocean. It has this tremendously powerful life force, a bunch of long, undulating legs, and it's heading somewhere, moving through the darkness of the ocean ... It takes on all kinds of different shapes - sometimes it's 'the nation,' and sometimes it's 'the law,' and sometimes it takes on shapes that are more difficult and dangerous than that. You can try cutting off its legs, but they just keep growing back. Nobody can kill it. It's too strong, and it lives too far down in the ocean. Nobody knows where its heart is. What I felt then was a deep terror. And a kind of hopelessness, a feeling that I could never run away from this thing, no matter how far I went. And this creature, this thing doesn't give a damn that I'm me or you're you. In its presence, all human beings lose their names and their faces. We all turn into signs, into numbers. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Expat Living quotes by Richelle Mead
#23. Adrian?"
Her voice was small, nearly lost in the dripping of waterfrom the fountain. But the power it carried - and the effect it had on me - was monumental. I'd heard the expression "weak-kneed" before but had never lived it until now. My muscles didn't feel as though they could sustain me, and there was a great swelling in my chest, the result of a tangle of emotions I couldn't even begin to describe. Love. Joy. Relief. Disbelief. And mixed in with all of them were the emotions that I'd endured these last few months as well: despair, fear, rossow. It spread out from my heart, and I felt tears form in my eyes. It wasn't possible that one person could make you experience so many emotions at once, that one person could trigger a universe of feelings, simply with the sound of your name.
I also knew then that they were wrong - all of them. My mom. My dad. Nina. Anyone who thought love could simply be built on shared goals alone had never, ever experienced anything like what I had with Sydney. I couldn't believe I'd almost lost this through my own ignorance. Until I looked into her eyes now, I didn't truly realize what a hollow life I'd been living.
"Sydney.. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Expat Living quotes by Marisa Ramirez
#24. There is always pressure playing a real living person and even pressure developing a character from scratch. #Quote by Marisa Ramirez
Expat Living quotes by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
#25. All living relationships are in process of
change, of expansion, and must perpetually be building themselves new forms. But there is no single
fixed form to express such a changing relationship. #Quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Expat Living quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#26. Everything living has a mouth. Mouths bite and swallow; they talk; they taste. They kiss. A mouth is the main tool for living. #Quote by Catherynne M Valente
Expat Living quotes by Margaret Kennedy
#27. He became so gloomy that she asked him, at last, if he was worried about anything. He assured her, instantly, that he was the happiest man in the world.
And he was. At times he was almost bewildered by his own bliss in being there, with Tony, so terribly dear, beside him; really his own for the rest of his life. It was not her fault if the insatiable sorrows of an unequal love tormented him, the hungry demand for more, for a fuller return, for a feeling which it was not in her nature to give. As she leaned forward, absorbed in the passions staged beneath her, he felt suddenly that their box contained just himself and a wraith, a ghost; as if the real Antonia, whom he loved, was an imagined woman living only in his sad fancy. #Quote by Margaret Kennedy
Expat Living quotes by Anthony Esolen
#28. What we cannot have, as I've said, is half a jungle. We can't have the world in which men and women love one another and raise healthy families, with almost all children born within wedlock and almost all children living with both parents, and their children in turn visiting their still-married grandparents, if at the same time we welcome the rest of the chaos. You can't have a child-friendly and marriage-friendly street with a porn shop and a strip club on it. The principle that the sexual "fulfillment" of adults is trumps must bear fruit accordingly. It is too wild a thing to nip here and there. It has to be uprooted. It is unworthy of a civilized and self-governing people. #Quote by Anthony Esolen
Expat Living quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#29. Some people walk through a hallway with covered mirrors– the hallway is lined with mirrors but there are blankets covering each of them. They go through life believing in an image of themselves that isn't real, and an image of themselves standing in the world and relative to the world, that isn't real. If you happen to be in that hallway and pull the blankets off the mirrors, they're going to think that you're hurting them; but they're actually just seeing their reflection for the first time. Sometimes the most horrendous thing a person can see, is all the hidden things inside them, the things they've covered, the things they choose not look at. And you're not hurting them, you're setting them free. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Expat Living quotes by Estelle Laure
#30. Explain to me what the point of living is if you aren't willing to fight for the truths in your heart, to risk getting hurt. #Quote by Estelle Laure
Expat Living quotes by Thomas Traherne
#31. Let those parents that desire Holy Children learn to make them possessors of Heaven and Earth betimes; to remove silly objects from before them, to magnify nothing but what is great indeed, and to talk of God to them, and of His works and ways. before they can either speak or go. #Quote by Thomas Traherne
