Gaps quotes by Richard Dawkins

Gaps quotes by Queen Rania Of Jordan
#2. In education, technology can be a life-changer, a game changer, for kids who are both in school and out of school. Technology can bring textbooks to life.

Gaps quotes by Sandra Day O'Connor

Gaps quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#4. We may differ on many things, but what we respect is free
inquiry, openmindedness, and the pursuit of ideas for their own sake.
We do not hold our convictions dogmatically: the disagreement between
Professor Stephen Jay Gould and Professor Richard Dawkins,
concerning "punctuated evolution" and the unfilled gaps in post-
Darwinian theory, is quite wide as well as quite deep, but we shall
resolve it by evidence and reasoning and not by mutual excommunication. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Gaps quotes by Timothy Ferriss
#5. On the Advantage of Cultivating Beginner's Mind "Experience often deeply embeds the assumptions that need to be questioned in the first place. When you have a lot of experience with something, you don't notice the things that are new about it. You don't notice the idiosyncrasies that need to be tweaked. You don't notice where the gaps are, what's missing, or what's not really working. #Quote by Timothy Ferriss
Gaps quotes by John W. Gardner
#6. The creative individual is particularly gifted in seeing the gap between what is and what could be. #Quote by John W. Gardner
Gaps quotes by Samuel West
#7. Books don't exist unless you read them. And it's a two way process - you write the book as you read it and you fill in the gaps. You discover it and you put the marks together and without you doing it they're just marks. #Quote by Samuel West
Gaps quotes by Chiwetel Ejiofor
#8. We take it for granted sometimes that certain parts of our history are told, and we take it for granted that we know all that stuff, and we move forward along on that basis, but there are also massive gaps, and we have to try to address them. #Quote by Chiwetel Ejiofor
Gaps quotes by Allan Lokos
#9. Patience lives in the gap between our experience of an event and our response to that experience. #Quote by Allan Lokos

Gaps quotes by Italo Calvino
#12. To fly is the opposite of traveling: you cross a gap in space, you vanish into the void, you accept not being in a place for a duration that is itself a kind of void in time; then you reappear, in a place and in a moment with no relation to the where and when in which you vanished. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Gaps quotes by Bob Proctor
#13. The biggest gap in your life is between what you know and what you do. #Quote by Bob Proctor
Gaps quotes by Franz Kafka
#14. Meanwhile, the majority of the audience- this is plain to see- has retreated into itself. Here in these brief gaps between their troubles our people dream; it is as if the limbs of each were loosened, as if every last uneasy individual were for once allowed to stretch out and relax freely in the great warm bed of the people. #Quote by Franz Kafka
Gaps quotes by Banana Yoshimoto
#15. fighting to bridge those gaps isn't what really matters. The most important thing is to know them inside and out, as differences, and to understand why certain people are the way they are. My #Quote by Banana Yoshimoto
Gaps quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#16. Dad's aren't optional. My dad wasn't optional."

Gaps quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#17. Mashi, happiness is like those stars. They don't cover all the darkness; there are gaps between. We make mistakes in life and we misunderstand, and yet there remain gaps through which truth shines. I #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Gaps quotes by Angela Saini
#18. Nobody has ever found any genes linking ethnicity or race to school results. Like Henry Garrett half a century earlier, [Gerhard] Meisenberg chooses to skip over the social, historical, and economic aspects of racial inequality. Rather, he believes that scientific evidence that doesn't yet exist will explain the gaps eventually. He takes it as given that the answer must be biological. #Quote by Angela Saini
Gaps quotes by E. M. Forster
#19. In this circle, one thought, married, and died. Outside it were poverty and vulgarity for ever trying to enter, just as the London fog tries to enter the pine-woods pouring through the gaps in the northern hills. But, #Quote by E. M. Forster
Gaps quotes by Melanne Verveer
#20. Studies demonstrate that as gaps are being closed between men and women - in access to education, in health, even in economic participation - the most difficult gap to close is in political participation. Somehow that sharing of raw power, political power, remains very illusive. #Quote by Melanne Verveer
Gaps quotes by Ivan Krastev

#22. The gap between bat and pad is so much that I would have driven a car through it ... !! #Quote by Navjot Singh Sidhu
Gaps quotes by Amy Bloom
#23. Nonfiction is both easier and harder to write than fiction. It's easier because the facts are already laid out before you, and there is already a narrative arc. What makes it harder is that you are not free to use your imagination and creativity to fill in any missing gaps within the story. #Quote by Amy Bloom
Gaps quotes by Stuart Wilde
#24. It's not just the emotional, intellectual, and physical gaps between you and money. The real gap is always between what you think you want and what you actually want, deep down. #Quote by Stuart Wilde
Gaps quotes by Amanda Torroni
#25. I fall in and out of love every day.'

'With people?'

'Mostly ideas of them. People only reveal themselves in pieces. Naturally, we fill in the gaps, the unknown, with what we want them to be. That's why love can be decieving.'

'You mean because we fall in love with someone? Not who they actually are?'

'That's exactly what I mean. #Quote by Amanda Torroni
Gaps quotes by Bill Lipinski
#26. Beyond highways and roads, we need more money for mass transit, intercity passenger rail and freight rail. We have a long way to go to bridge the funding gaps. #Quote by Bill Lipinski
Gaps quotes by Sheryl Sandberg
#27. Women don't take enough risks. Men are just 'foot on the gas pedal.' We're not going to close the achievement gap until we close the ambition gap. #Quote by Sheryl Sandberg
Gaps quotes by Marguerite Duras
#28. Alcohol doesn't console, it doesn't fill up anyone's psychological gaps, all it replaces is the lack of God. It doesn't comfort man. On the contrary, it encourages him in his folly, it transports him to the supreme regions where he is master of his own destiny. #Quote by Marguerite Duras
Gaps quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#29. Where God tears great gaps we should not try to fill them with human words. They should remain open. Our only comfort is the God of the resurrection, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ ... #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Gaps quotes by Pierre Bayard
#30. To speak without shame about books we haven't read, we would thus do well to free ourselves of the oppressive image of cultural literacy without gaps, as transmitted and imposed by family and school, for we can strive toward this image for a lifetime without ever managing to coincide with it. #Quote by Pierre Bayard
Gaps quotes by Shane Eric Mathias
#31. We must endeavor to be whole, whether in or out of a relationship, basing happiness on our own internal resources rather than relying on someone else to full the perceived gaps in our lives. #Quote by Shane Eric Mathias
Gaps quotes by Naomi Campbell
#32. I do feel that I'm talking to someone who's in a totally different place from where I was when I started modeling. I was fortunate enough to have the wonderful designers and amazing photographers around me, and editors that I knew, and if I wanted to ask a question, I asked them. So that gap has broadened a bit. #Quote by Naomi Campbell
Gaps quotes by Andrew McCutchen
#33. I don't really look at myself as a power hitter. I look at myself as someone who drives the ball to the gaps, hits line drives. #Quote by Andrew McCutchen
Gaps quotes by Arlene J. Chai
#34. The word itself creates an empty sensation. Try saying it now. "Why?" Notice how your tongue touches nothing when you form the word with your mouth. Feel the gap, the space inside your mouth, that it creates. The air. It is a place that needs filling. It is missing an answer. #Quote by Arlene J. Chai
Gaps quotes by Adrian Tchaikovsky
#35. Ah, but it is an interesting thing, that these things can so seldom be proved. If I were to perform some piece of, hrmf, magic for you, here in this room, you would claim a thousand ways it could have been done. Indeed, those ways might be exceedingly unlikely, but you would cling to them rather than accept the, mmn, the chance that magic, the eternal inexplicable, might be the true agent, and if you were strong enough in yourself, unafraid, unthreatened, here in your own chambers, well perhaps there would be no magic worked at all. It is a subjective force, you see, whereas the physical laws of the artificers are objective. A gear-train will turn without faith, but magic may not. And so, when your people demand, mmn, proof, there is none, but when you have forgotten and dismissed it, then magic creeps back into the gaps where you do not look for it. #Quote by Adrian Tchaikovsky
Gaps quotes by Rod Serling
#36. If you want to prove that God is not dead first prove that man is alive. #Quote by Rod Serling
Gaps quotes by Frederick Salomon Perls
#37. Anxiety is the gap between now and later. #Quote by Frederick Salomon Perls
Gaps quotes by John Madden
#38. The greatest gap in sports is between the winner and the loser of the Super Bowl. The winner has confetti, parades, rings, the whole thing. The loser puts his head down and goes to his house. #Quote by John Madden
Gaps quotes by Steven Levitsky
#39. Even well-designed constitutions cannot, by themselves, guarantee democracy. For one, constitutions are always incomplete. Like any set of rules, they have countless gaps and ambiguities. No operating manual, no matter how detailed, can anticipate all possible contingencies or prescribe how to behave under all possible circumstances. #Quote by Steven Levitsky
Gaps quotes by Nancy Pearcey
#40. The contemporary design argument does not rest, however, on gaps in our knowledge but rather on the growth in our knowledge due to the revolution in molecular biology. Information theory has taught us that nature exhibits two types of order. The first type is produced by natural causes-shiny crystals, hexagonal patterns in oil, whirlpools in the bathtub. But the second type-the complex structure of the DNA molecule-is not produced by any natural processes known to experience. #Quote by Nancy Pearcey
Gaps quotes by Lucretius
#41. If one thing frightens people, it is that so much happens, on earth and out in space, the reasons for which seem somehow to escape them, and they fill in the gap by putting it down to the gods. #Quote by Lucretius
Gaps quotes by Philip Yancey
#42. We should feel dissonance; we are, after all, immortals trapped in mortal surroundings. We lack unity because long ago a gap fissured open between our mortal and immortal parts; theologians trace the fault line back to the Fall. #Quote by Philip Yancey
Gaps quotes by Atul Gawande
#43. Checklists turn out ... to be among the basic tools of the quality and productivity revolution in aviation, engineering, construction - in virtually every field combining high risk and complexity. Checklists seem lowly and simplistic, but they help fill in for the gaps in our brains and between our brains. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Gaps quotes by Rick Perry
#44. I want people of faith on my side, not just voting on election day but by hoisting me up by getting down on your knees and lifting me up in prayer. Those who have a different view of things are already organizing ... Will you stand in the gap with those of us who believe there's a God, and a God who is strong? We can stand in the gap together and speak about issues we believe in and we will be victorious. #Quote by Rick Perry
Gaps quotes by Cambria Hebert
#45. The right kind of love is supposed to bring out the best in people.It adds to your life,fills in all those gaps you didn't even realize where there. #Quote by Cambria Hebert
Gaps quotes by John Negroponte
#46. It should be obvious that this pattern of systematic holes and gaps in Iraq's declaration is not the result of accidents, editing oversights or technical mistakes. These are material omissions that - in our view - constitute another material breach. It is up to Iraq to prove that there is some other explanation besides the obvious one, that this declaration is just one more act of deception in a history of lies from a defiant dictator. #Quote by John Negroponte
Gaps quotes by Michael Longley
#47. When I'm assembling a book I concentrate as though I were writing a poem. A truly imagined arrangement will indicate gaps and generate new poems. I re-read the new poems in my folder in the hope that this might happen. #Quote by Michael Longley
Gaps quotes by Walker Percy
#48. Why is there such a gap between nonspeaking animals and speaking man, when there is no other such gap in nature? #Quote by Walker Percy
Gaps quotes by Anuj
#49. Kindness is a steeling feeling that has a power of filling the gaps in relationships by stealing hearts. #Quote by Anuj
Gaps quotes by Rowan Williams
#50. Doctrinal formulae are neither a set of neat definitions nor some sort of affront to the free-thinking soul; they are words that tell us enough truth to bring us to the edge of speech, and words that sustain enough common life to hold us there together in worship and mutual love... I learned to rethink Hegel and to grasp that what he was concerned with was not a system that could be projected on to some detached reality 'out there', but a habit of thinking that always sought to understand itself as a process of self-questioning and self-dissolution in the process of discovering *real* language - and thus real thinking. It is the energy of surpassing the settled individual self in the journey to truth... The Hegelian point (as I understand it) is that meaning does not come in the gaps between words or things, but in the way in which the structure and the surface of the world and speech can be so read and heard as to lead us into new and strange configurations of understanding - how words and things always deliver more than themselves, more than a series of objects and labels, and so both undermine and re-establish appearances.

Hans Urs von Balthasar... developed an aesthetic of extraordinary depth in which some of the same themes may be discerned. His 'dramatic' construal of the world is meant to remind us that we do not start from intuitions of spiritual truth and then embody them in some way in practices and words. First we are addressed and engaged by what is utt #Quote by Rowan Williams
Gaps quotes by Andy Hargreaves
#51. Don't raise the bar and narrow the gap, but narrow the gap to raise the bar. #Quote by Andy Hargreaves
Gaps quotes by E. E. Cummings
#52. Someone asked me what home was, and all I could think of were the stars on the tip of your tongue, the flowers sprouting from your mouth, the roots entwined in the gaps between your fingers, the ocean echoing inside of your rib cage. #Quote by E. E. Cummings
Gaps quotes by Star Parker
#53. Those on the left who scream about income gaps choose to focus on the success of those at the top rather than the failures of those at the bottom. They conveniently ignore that liberals are the ones who have pushed the moral relativisim and welfare-state dependence that has destroyed black families over the last 60 years. And it is these same liberals who fight to keep low-income kids in failing public schools and fight efforts to get school choice. #Quote by Star Parker
Gaps quotes by Dan Abnett
#54. Great actions have shaped our society.' Sindermann said. The greatest of these, physically, has been the Emperor's formal and complete unification of Terra, the outward sequel to which, this Great Crusade, we are now engaged upon. But the greatest, intellectually, has been our casting off of that heavy mantle called religion. Religion damned our species for thousands of years, from the lowest superstition to the highest conclaves of spiritual faith. It drove us to madness, to war,
to murder, it hung upon us like a disease, like a shackle ball. I'll tell you what religion was... No, you tell me. You, there?'
'Ignorance, sir.'
Thank you, Khanna. Ignorance. Since the earliest times, our species has striven to understand the workings of the cosmos, and where that understanding has failed, or fallen short, we have filled in the gaps, plastered over the discrepancies, with blind faith. Why does the sun go round the sky? I don't know, so I will attribute it to the efforts of a sun god with a golden chariot. Why do people die? I can't say, but I will choose to believe it is the murky business of a reaper who carries souls to some afterworld. #Quote by Dan Abnett
Gaps quotes by Neal Shusterman
#55. Then she offers him a slim but sincere smile, and he reluctantly returns it. It doesn't bridge the gap between them, but at least it marks the spot where the bridge might be built. #Quote by Neal Shusterman
Gaps quotes by Sara Baume
#56. Now see the nasturtiums. The leaves are like tiny green parasols blown inside-out and the flowers are terrifically garish. In every village we pass through, see how they are everywhere, how they fill every gap in every wall, every crack in every path.
The nasturtiums have it figured out, how survival's just a matter of filling in the gaps between sun up and sun down. Boiling kettles, peeling potatoes, laundering towels, buying milk, changing light-bulbs, rooting wet mats of pubic hair out of the shower's plughole. This is the way people survive, by filling one hole at a time for the flightiest of temporary gratifications, over and over and over, until the season's out and they die off anyway, wither back into the wall or path, into their dark crevasse. This is the way life's eaten away, expended by the onerous effort of living itself. #Quote by Sara Baume
Gaps quotes by James D. Watson
#57. [When asked by a student if he believes in any gods]
Oh, no. Absolutely not ... The biggest advantage to believing in God is you don't have to understand anything, no physics, no biology. I wanted to understand. #Quote by James D. Watson
Gaps quotes by Jeremiah P. Ostriker
#58. The discrepancy between what was expected and what has been observed has grown over the years, and we're straining harder and harder to fill the gap. #Quote by Jeremiah P. Ostriker
Gaps quotes by Susanna Clarke
#59. For a moment or two before the spell took effect, he was aware of all the sounds around him: rain splashing on metal and leather, and running down canvas; horses shuffling and snorting; Englishmen singing and Scotsmen playing bagpipes; two Welsh soldiers arguing over the proper interpretation of a Bible passage; the Scottish captain, John Kincaid, entertaining the American savages and teaching them to drink tea (presumably with the idea that once a man had learnt to drink tea, the other habits and qualities that make up a Briton would naturally follow).
Then silence. Men and horses began to disappear, few by few at first, and then more quickly – hundreds, thousands of them vanishing from sight. Great gaps appeared among the close-packed soldiers. A little further to the east an entire regiment was gone, leaving a hole the size of Hanover-square. Where, moments before, all had been life, conversation and activity, there was now nothing but the rain and the twilight and the waving stalks of rye. Strange wiped his mouth because he felt sick. #Quote by Susanna Clarke
Gaps quotes by Sarah Painter
#60. Maybe it's the coma, but I'm genuinely happy to be here.' 'You don't have to do that, you know.' 'Do what?' 'Assume that everything is different now. You're still the same person you always were, you've just got some gaps to fill in. You mustn't think that you're starting all over again.' 'Is #Quote by Sarah Painter
Gaps quotes by James E. Faust
#61. The gap between what is popular and what is righteous is widening. #Quote by James E. Faust
Gaps quotes by Anna Lindh
#62. One of the gaps in our international development efforts is the provision of global public goods - that is, goods or conditions we need that no individual or country can secure on their own, such as halting global warming, financial stability and peace and security. #Quote by Anna Lindh
Gaps quotes by Zack Wamp
#63. Recruitment and retention are critical to sustain our Armed Forces with the best men and women willing to stand in the gap and make huge sacrifices to ensure our freedom. #Quote by Zack Wamp
Gaps quotes by Joseph Conrad
#64. The moon had spread over everything a thin layer of silver - over the rank grass, over the mud, upon the wall of matted vegetation standing higher than the wall of a temple, over the great river I could see through a sombre gap glittering, glittering, as it flowed broadly by without a murmur. All this was great, expectant, mute, while the man jabbered about himself. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Gaps quotes by Terry-Thomas
#65. Everyone was talking about the gap between my teeth, my monocle, the fancy waistcoats I wore and the seven-inch cigarette holders I used #Quote by Terry-Thomas
Gaps quotes by Ashim Shanker
#66. Let us, thusly, embrace the assumption that to each advocate of a respective paradigm within his respective bubble, the phenomenological gaps between himself and those in neighboring bubbles are insurmountable. The resident of a given bubble has become so inured to the echoes of his own 'truth' as to abandon all terms of commonality with the 'truths' of others outside his bubble. The internal terms, concepts, definitions and assumptions underlying each paradigm are different and incommensurate with those of their external counterparts. And so, to debate them would be tantamount to speaking through one another without much mutual understanding. In their communities, they speak different words, abide by different sets of logic, axioms and propositions from those of other communities; they, thusly, do not understand the terminology upholding other paradigms beside their own, and many attempts at translation have become lost in circular discourse for there exists no equivalency of terms. Thus, any gaps between bubbles of paradigm are beyond traversal; all arguments between them remain perplexing and irreconcilable. There, then, evolves, among them, a strong tendency to seek out information that only serves to confirm their own biases, and, in the process, to otherize any alien paradigms as hotbeds of disinformation. #Quote by Ashim Shanker
Gaps quotes by Margaret Whiting
#67. So many schools have cut the music classes out of their curriculum. We're trying to fill that gap by teaching the teachers how to educate the kids about their musical heritage. #Quote by Margaret Whiting
Gaps quotes by Amy Carmichael
#68. Part of a soldier's duty is to fill gaps ... one must be willing to be nothing, as something. #Quote by Amy Carmichael
Gaps quotes by H.G.Wells
#69. Oliver, my professor, was a scientific bounder, a journalist by instinct, a thief of ideas, - he was always prying! And you know the knavish system of the scientific world. I simply would not publish, and let him share my credit. I went on working, I got nearer and nearer making my formula into an experiment, a reality. I told no living soul, because I meant to flash my work upon the world with crushing effect and become famous at a blow. I took up the question of pigments to fill up certain gaps. And suddenly, not by design but by accident, I made a discovery in physiology. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Gaps quotes by Talia Hibbert
#70. You think this is a big deal because, no offense, you've had a lot of people in your life who claimed to care about you but didn't act like it. That's not me. I can cook, and right now, you can't. So I'm doing it for you because that's how people should behave; they should fill in each other's gaps. Don't think about it too hard. #Quote by Talia Hibbert
Gaps quotes by Garth Greenwell
#71. It does seem like between the groundbreaking writing of Edmund White's generation and the work of younger gay writers in their twenties and thirties there is a kind of gap. #Quote by Garth Greenwell
Gaps quotes by Nina Garcia
#72. Invest in a couple of really good things - a great, classic coat; a good pair of shoes; and a timeless bag - then fill in the gaps with lower-priced pieces. #Quote by Nina Garcia
Gaps quotes by James Gleick
#73. One simple but powerful consequence of the fractal geometry of surfaces is that surfaces in contact do not touch everywhere. The bumpiness at all scales prevents that. Even in rock under enormous pressure, at some sufficiently small scale it becomes clear that gaps remain, allowing fluid to flow. #Quote by James Gleick
Gaps quotes by Michael Longley
#74. I work hard to make the poems as good as they can be, and if they're not good enough I scrap them. I find it difficult after a gap of a few years to tinker - I'm more likely to destroy. #Quote by Michael Longley
Gaps quotes by Kira Stone
#75. As he spoke, the wind whistled through the gaps in his teeth, creating an odd musical accompaniment to his words. -- unpublished as of Jan 11 2016, but surely due to appear in one of my works eventually. #Quote by Kira Stone
Gaps quotes by Donald Knuth
#76. The hardest thing is to go to sleep at night, when there are so many urgent things needing to be done. A huge gap exists between what we know is possible with today's machines and what we have so far been able to finish. #Quote by Donald Knuth
Gaps quotes by Shelby Mahurin
#77. I crept into his lap. "What am I, Reid? Say it again." "You're a witch." "And what are you?" He didn't hesitate, and my heart swelled. "I am too." "Only partly right, I'm afraid." My smile - now genuine - grew at his confusion, and I leaned forward, rubbing my nose against his. He closed his eyes. "Allow me to fill in the gaps for you." I kissed his nose. "You are a huntsman." Though he recoiled slightly, I didn't let him escape, kissing his cheek. "You are a son." I kissed his other cheek. "You are a brother." His forehead. "You are a husband." His eyelids and his chin. "You are brave and strong and good ." And, finally, his lips. "But most important, you are loved. #Quote by Shelby Mahurin
Gaps quotes by Annie Dillard
#78. Could tiny birds be sifting through me right now, birds winging through the gaps between my cells, touching nothing, but quickening in my tissues, fleet? #Quote by Annie Dillard
Gaps quotes by Mencius
#79. The gap between enthusiasm and indifference is filled with failures. The great man is he that does not lose his child's heart. #Quote by Mencius
Gaps quotes by Liu Cixin
#80. In her life, moments of happiness were only gaps between mass catastrophes. She was now afraid of happiness. #Quote by Liu Cixin
Gaps quotes by Stephen Gardiner
#81. In the East there is a gap between the top of a wall and underside of a roof; it acts as a screen, and the Chinese were able to use it as they wished. #Quote by Stephen Gardiner
Gaps quotes by Joseph Chilton Pearce
#82. There is no logical, rational, pre-structured criterion "out there" with a divine plan. There is no truth "out there" which our weak minds or souls eventually run across. There is this casual, haphazard, amoral process that leaps the logical gaps and brings about newness. And the procedurés only demand is that given talents be invested, risked, doubled, the possibilities explored. #Quote by Joseph Chilton Pearce
Gaps quotes by Reba Riley
#83. This is why being broken is so beautiful: being broken means you have cracks for love and light to shine through, gaps for the Godiverse to burrow and bloom, space to move from who you are to who you will become. #Quote by Reba Riley
Gaps quotes by Avinash Advani
#84. HR is My Area of Interest Where I Can Utilize My Professional Skills Throughout Fill The Gaps Between Organizational Goals With Employees Goals. #Quote by Avinash Advani
Gaps quotes by Steven Rowley
#85. It is said that if dogs could tell us all they have seen, it would magically stitch together all the gaps in our lives. #Quote by Steven Rowley
Gaps quotes by Victor Hugo
#86. A certain amount of reverie is good, like a narcotic in discreet doses. It soothes the fever, occasionally high, of the brain at work, and produces in the mind a soft, fresh vapor that corrects the all too angular contours of pure thought, fills up the gaps and intervals here and there, binds them together, and dulls the sharp corners of ideas. But too much reverie submerges and drowns. Thought is the labor of the intellect, reverie it's pleasure. To replace thought with reverie is to confound poison with nourishment. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Gaps quotes by Emery Lord
#87. I keep wondering if it'll ever hurt less. This...this hole in our lives." "Oh, I imagine it'll hurt less eventually. I think there will always be a hole, though. But lace is one of the most beautiful fabrics, you know. All those holes and gaps, but it's still complete somehow- still lovely. #Quote by Emery Lord
Gaps quotes by Pearl Zhu
#88. The simplicity and the complexity are just the opposite ends of the same spectrum. #Quote by Pearl Zhu
Gaps quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#89. There are many paradoxes in the world and one of them is this, that wherever the landscape is immense, the sky unlimited, clouds intimately dense, feelings unfathomable ⎯ that is to say where infinitude is manifest ⎯ its fit companion is one solitary person; a multitude there seems so petty, so distracting.

An individual and the infinite are on equal terms, worthy to gaze on one another, each from his own throne. But where many men are, how small both humanity and infinitude become, how much they have to knock off each other, in order to fit in together! Each soul wants so much room to expand that in a crowd it needs must wait for gaps through which to thrust a little craning piece of a head from time to time.

So the only result of our endeavour to assemble is that we become unable to fill our joined hands, our outstretched arms, with this endless, fathomless expanse. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Gaps quotes by Adam Schiff
#90. It's a huge gap in security, it's a huge problem we've had with our immigration system for many years. #Quote by Adam Schiff
Gaps quotes by Emery Lord
#91. Jonah's stare stays out over the water. "I keep wondering if it'll ever hurt less. This... this whole in our lives."
"Oh, I imagine it'll hurt less eventually. I think there will always be a hole, though. But lace is one of the most beautiful fabrics, you know. All those holes and gaps, but it's still completed somehow-still lovely. #Quote by Emery Lord
Gaps quotes by William Boyd
#92. All family histories, personal histories,are as sketchy and unreliable as histories of the Phoenicians, it seems to me. We should note everything down, fill in the wide gaps if we can. Which is why I am writing this my darlings. #Quote by William Boyd
Gaps quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#93. I think the gap between rich and poor is an extremely dangerous phenomenon and needs the immediate attention of the state. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Gaps quotes by Justin Broadrick
#94. I'm always interested in very, very futuristic music and bridging the gap between the physicality of organic guitar music and trying to translate that into something electronic is really fascinating. #Quote by Justin Broadrick
Gaps quotes by Kevin Barry
#95. Irish writing is so strong that it can feel like the country has all been covered, but in fact, there are so many gaps. The small west of Ireland cities and the working classes there have almost never appeared in Irish literature, simply because those communities were never in the way of producing books. #Quote by Kevin Barry
Gaps quotes by Alberto Manguel
#96. We read in slow, long motions, as if drifting in space, weightless. We read full of prejudice, malignantly. We read generously, making excuses for the text, filling gaps, mending faults. And sometimes, when the stars are kind, we read with an intake of breath, with a shudder ... as if a memory had suddenly been rescued from a place deep within us
the recognition of something we never knew was there ... #Quote by Alberto Manguel
Gaps quotes by Frances Hardinge
#97. you only had to provide part of a lie. You could rely on other people's imaginations to fill the gaps. She #Quote by Frances Hardinge
Gaps quotes by Catherine Hardwicke
#98. Most of the female-directed films, if they got distribution, would have fewer dollars to support the film and play in fewer theaters than the men. Because the female-directed films go to smaller companies. So the gap starts widening. #Quote by Catherine Hardwicke
Gaps quotes by Jay
#99. It's ok to break. It's ok to let yourself shatter into a million pieces, as long as when your done you pick them back up. Some of the pieces will never be found again, those gaps will fill in time. And even if they don't, these broken things are the most beautiful. #Quote by Jay
Gaps quotes by Brad Pitt
#100. I believe in the power of journalism. To make informed decisions, you have to have an understanding of the dynamics of a situation. And journalism does bridge gaps and creates dialogue. #Quote by Brad Pitt
Gaps quotes by Dhanalakshmi G
#101. Spend time in introspecting that gives us the knowledge of gaps in our learning, life and experiences. #Quote by Dhanalakshmi G
Gaps quotes by Dalai Lama
#102. Nowadays, we are confronted by a huge gap between rich and poor. This is not only morally wrong, but practically a mistake. It leads to the rich living in anxiety and the poor living in frustration, which has the potential to lead to more violence. We have to work to reduce this gap. It's truly unfair that some people should have so much while others go hungry. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Gaps quotes by Frank Church
#103. This war has already stretched the generation gap so wide that it threatens to pull the country apart. #Quote by Frank Church
Gaps quotes by Sheldon Vanauken
#104. Between the probable and proved there yawns
A gap. Afraid to jump, we stand absurd,
Then see behind us sink the ground and, worse,
Our very standpoint crumbling. Desperate dawns
Our only hope: to leap into the Word
That opens up the shuttered universe. #Quote by Sheldon Vanauken
Gaps quotes by Adam Shankman
#105. Reality also is that there are a lot of gaps, there are a lot of business in between the iconic things. #Quote by Adam Shankman
Gaps quotes by Ken Liu
#106. Like all true stories, it was a mix of legends and facts, of myths imagined and deeds done, of the heart of darkness and the crown of light, of experiences borne and gaps filled, of things seen and visions that could only be authenticated by the mind's eye. #Quote by Ken Liu
Gaps quotes by Mike Rowe
#107. The skills gap is a reflection of what we value. To close the gap, we need to change the way the country feels about work. #Quote by Mike Rowe
Gaps quotes by Lynn Barber
#108. I suspect this is always the way with conmen: they don't even have to construct a whole story, their victims fill in the gaps, reconcile the irreconciliables – their victims do most of the work. #Quote by Lynn Barber
Gaps quotes by Paulo Coelho
#109. There is always a gap between intention and action.. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Gaps quotes by Stuart Turton
#110. How lost do you have to be to let the devil lead you home?

Pity's a fog to become lost within.


I'm any face in a crowd; just the Lord's way of filling in the gaps.


Thankfully, the leaves and twigs are so demoralized by the earlier rain they don't have the heart to cry out beneath my feet. #Quote by Stuart Turton
Gaps quotes by Elizabeth Langston
#111. Memory loss is strange. It's like showing up for a movie after it's started. I'm sure I've missed something. I don't know if it's important or not. So I do the best I can to lose myself in the story and hope the gaps don't matter. Later, I can look it up, or someone will remind me, or maybe it's perfectly fine to not know. #Quote by Elizabeth Langston
Gaps quotes by Deborah Day
#112. You will have fewer regrets in life if you start focusing and taking responsiblity for where you are and where you want to be. #Quote by Deborah Day
Gaps quotes by Pema Chodron
#113. The way I regard those who hurt me today will affect how I experience the world in the future. In any encounter, we have a choice: we can strengthen our resentment or our understanding and empathy. We can widen the gap between ourselves and others or lessen it. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Gaps quotes by Donald O. Clifton
#114. Since the greatest room for each person's growth is in the areas of his greatest strength, you should focus your training time and money on educating him about his strengths and figuring out ways to build on these strengths rather than on remedially trying to plug his 'skill gaps.' You will find that this one shift in emphasis will pay huge dividends. In one fell swoop you will sidestep three potential pitfalls to building a strengths-based organization: the 'I don't have the skills and knowledge I need' problem, the 'I don't know what I'm best at' problem, and the 'my manager doesn't know what I'm best at' problem. #Quote by Donald O. Clifton
Gaps quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#115. Pay attention to the gap - the gap between two thoughts, the brief, silent space between words in a conversation, between the notes of a piano or flute, or the gap between the in-breath and the out-breath. When you pay attention to those gaps, awareness of 'something' becomes - just awareness. The formless dimension of pure conciousness arises from within you and replaces identification with form. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Gaps quotes by Fred Savage
#116. I think a lot of longevity, especially as a performer, depends on kind of what your commodity is. If your commodity is your cuteness and your chubby cheeks and your big gap between your teeth, if that's what your greatest asset is, of course that fails or that changes, you know, that goes away. Of course that fades. #Quote by Fred Savage
Gaps quotes by Douglas Coupland
#117. Time perception is very much about how you sequence your activities, how many activities you layer overtop of others, and the types of gaps, if any, you leave in between activities. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Gaps quotes by Marcel Proust
#118. The 'action' began: to me it seemed all the more obscure because in those days, when I read to myself, I used often, while I turned the pages, to dream of something quite different. And to the gaps which this habit made in my knowledge of the story more were added by the fact that when it was Mamma who was reading to me aloud she left all the love-scenes out. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Gaps quotes by Zechariah Barrett
#119. No separation of distance; no separation of time; no separation of any kind need lessen compassion. #Quote by Zechariah Barrett
Gaps quotes by Katherine Paterson
#120. It wasn't so much that he minded telling Leslie that he was afraid to go; it was that he minded being afraid. It was as though he had been made with a great piece missing - one of May Belle's puzzles with this huge gap where somebody's eye should have been. Lord, it would be better to be born without an arm than to go through life with no guts. #Quote by Katherine Paterson
Gaps quotes by Nadine Gordimer
#121. Perhaps the best definition of progress would be the continuing efforts of men and women to narrow the gap between the convenience of the powers that be and the unwritten charter. #Quote by Nadine Gordimer
Gaps quotes by Lauren Oliver
#122. The details that are my life's special pattern, like how in handwoven rugs what really makes them unique are the tiny flaws in the stitching, little gaps and jumps and stutters that can never be reproduced. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Gaps quotes by Lav Diaz
#123. The novelistic attribute of my work is very much like the Russian way of creating novels. Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky - their work has so many gaps. But for the reader, you cannot erase those gaps because they are important. They contextualize the whole struggle. My cinema is like that. #Quote by Lav Diaz
Gaps quotes by Daniel Dennett
#124. Isn't it true that whatever isn't determined by our genes must be determined by our environment? What else is there? There's Nature and there's Nurture. Is there also some X, some further contributor to what we are? There's Chance. Luck. This extra ingredient is important but doesn't have to come from the quantum bowels of our atoms or from some distant star. It is all around us in the causeless coin-flipping of our noisy world, automatically filling in the gaps of specification left unfixed by our genes, and unfixed by salient causes in our environment. #Quote by Daniel Dennett
Gaps quotes by Garrett Atkins
#125. You never know how your skills are going to play out at the next level. But I knew I had a lot of doubles and I was capable of driving the ball into gaps. #Quote by Garrett Atkins
Gaps quotes by Anders Fogh Rasmussen
#126. Ten years ago U.S. defence investment represented almost half of all defence expenditure in the whole alliance. Today it is 75%. This increasing economic gap may also lead to an increasing technology gap which will almost hamper the inter-operability between our forces. #Quote by Anders Fogh Rasmussen
Gaps quotes by John Gregory
#127. Recruit for the future not just for the gap. #Quote by John Gregory
Gaps quotes by Holly Black
#128. In my parents' house, nothing was ever thrown away. Clothes piled up, formed drifts that grew into mountains Philip, Baron, and I would climb and leap from. The heaps of garments filled the hallway and chased my parents out of their own bedroom, so that they eventually slept in the room that was once Dad's office. Empty bags and boxes filled gaps in the clutter, boxes that once held rings and sneakers and clothes. A trumpet that my mother wanted to make into a lamp rested atop a stack of tattered magazines filled with articles Dad planned to read, near the heads and feet and arms of dolls Mom promised she would stitch together for a kid from Carney, all beside an endless heap of replacement buttons, some still in their individual glassine bags. A coffeemaker rested on a tower of plates, propped up on one end to keep coffee from flooding the counters. #Quote by Holly Black
Gaps quotes by James Wolcott
#129. Feature-length film comedy is harder to pull off than the episodic sitcom - it doesn't have the same factory machinery up and running, teams of writers putting familiar characters through permutations - but that doesn't explain the widening quality gap that makes movie humor look like a genetic defective. #Quote by James Wolcott
Gaps quotes by John Madden
#130. That's the biggest gap in sports, the difference between the winner and the loser of the Super Bowl. #Quote by John Madden
Gaps quotes by Stephen Nachmanovitch
#131. If we are transparent, with nothing to hide, the gap between language and being disappears. Then the Muse can speak. #Quote by Stephen Nachmanovitch
Gaps quotes by David Schoenbrun
#132. The complexities of national deficits, trade failures, budget gaps, negotiations to end the nuclear arms race, the crises of the Middle East, all these cannot be understood by giving the facts alone. The public needs appropriate historical background and clarification. People who are not taught much geography, history, economics, and physics simply cannot reach reasonable conclusions without help from specialists. This is not elitism, it is something far more important; it is called education. #Quote by David Schoenbrun
Gaps quotes by Md. Ziaul Haque
#133. In the school, college or university class routine, there should be no classes for the teachers to conduct at a stretch such as 10-11, 11-12, 12-1. There must be a little gap in between the classes such as, 10-11, 11:10-12:10, 12:20-1:20. These gaps are so important because after conducting one class, a teacher needs some moments to reach another class. In addition, the students also need some time to freshen up. In fact, the classes in a row make them feel bored. #Quote by Md. Ziaul Haque
Gaps quotes by Kate Griffin
#134. Let the ceiling split in two, let electricity dance like burning snakes between the gaps, let it writhe and wrap its tendrils around men's flesh, let them for a moment be seared with blazing light and the earth has opened beneath them and those who did not flee are trapped. Some are impaled on the foundation rods that lanced up from the ground itself - him upon a spike that has passed straight through his belly, pushing him off the ground like a doll [that's just disgusting]. #Quote by Kate Griffin
Gaps quotes by Margaret Spellings
#135. I mean, one thing I know about change is we are not going to close the achievement gap without educators. #Quote by Margaret Spellings
Gaps quotes by Richard Dawkins
#136. Creationists eagerly seek a gap in present-day knowledge or understanding. If an apparent gap is found, it is assumed that God, by default, must fill it. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Gaps quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#137. His youth seemed never so vanished as now in the contrast between the utter loneliness of this visit and that riotous, joyful party of four years before. Things that had been the merest commonplaces of his life then, deep sleep, the sense of beauty around him, all desire, had flown away and the gaps they left were filled only with the great listlessness of his disillusion. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Gaps quotes by George Gaylord Simpson
#138. The earliest and most primitive known members of every order already have the basic ordinal characters, and in no case is an approximately continuous sequence from one order to another known. In most cases the break is so sharp and the gap so large that the origin of the order is speculative and much disputed. #Quote by George Gaylord Simpson
Gaps quotes by Jeffrey Sachs
#139. Senior development specialists in the Treasury can be counted on one hand. America's government is not even aware of the gap between its commitments and action, because almost nobody in authority understands the actions that would be needed to meet the commitments. #Quote by Jeffrey Sachs
Gaps quotes by Deepak Chopra
#140. The Self is not in the realm of thought. The Self is in the gap between our thoughts. The cosmic psyche whispers to us softly in the gap between our thoughts. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Gaps quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#141. Historical gap is created due to missing written records. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Gaps quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#142. We cannot too soon convince ourselves how easily we may be dispensed with in the world. What important personages we imagine ourselves to be! We think that we alone are the life of the circle in which we move; in our absence, we fancy that life, existence, breath will come to a general pause, and, alas, the gap which we leave is scarcely perceptible, so quickly is it filled again; nay, it is often the place, if not of something better, at least for something more agreeable. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Gaps quotes by R. Vaidyanathan
#143. In many parts of India, chit funds address gaps left by the traditional banking sector. #Quote by R. Vaidyanathan
Gaps quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#144. Cruelty ... prefers abstraction. Some have tried to resolved this gap by hunting or butchering an animal themselves, as if those experiences might somehow legitimize the endeavor of eating animals. This is very silly. Murdering someone would surely prove that you are capable of killing, but it woudln't be the most reasonable way to understand why you should or shouldn't do it. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Gaps quotes by Kamla Persad-Bissessar
#145. Looking towards the future, one of the most important issues the national community must face is the widening gap between the liberated, modern, independent women and our traditional men who are being left behind. #Quote by Kamla Persad-Bissessar
Gaps quotes by Molly Ann Wishlade
#146. Take your clothes off."
"What?"
"You heard me."
Evelyn forced her mouth shut.
She looked around the room, buying time. The faded brown curtains hung limply over the windows, not quite touching, and the afternoon light filtered through the gaps, its beams turning the dust in the air into diamonds. She could hear the rattle of a wagon on the street below and the regular rhythm of squeaking bedsprings in the adjacent room.
"So? What are you waiting for?"
She stared at the man on the moth eaten chaise longue in front of her. He was serious. #Quote by Molly Ann Wishlade
Gaps quotes by Sara Sheridan
#147. History is full of blank spaces, but good stories, invariably, are not. #Quote by Sara Sheridan
Gaps quotes by Pittacus Lore
#148. When you have gaps in your memory like I do, you come to better appreciate the things you do remember. The way your hands just repeat a task you've done enough times, without even needing to think. Who needs Legacies when we have the infinite power of the human mind at our disposal? #Quote by Pittacus Lore
Gaps quotes by Kathleen Sebelius
#149. While closing our innovation gaps won't solve all our problems, we have some very real opportunities to improve the quality of care that's delivered to millions of Americans. #Quote by Kathleen Sebelius
Gaps quotes by Maitreya Rudrabhayananda
#150. Hold the thoughts, know the thoughts and you realize the thoughts have slowed showing breaks and gaps, be the witness to them and you shall be meditating #Quote by Maitreya Rudrabhayananda
Gaps quotes by Pearl Zhu
#151. A benchmarking mind is an "interpreter" mind which can bridge the gaps. #Quote by Pearl Zhu
Gaps quotes by Bill Gates
#152. The power of capitalism to mediate the gap between rich and poor is pretty incredible. Indeed, I think, year by year, the gap gets less. #Quote by Bill Gates
Gaps quotes by Mary Brave Bird
#153. We didn't have a generation gap, we had a generation Grand Canyon. #Quote by Mary Brave Bird
Gaps quotes by Antoni Tapies
#154. If one draws things in a manner which provides only the barest clue to their meaning, the viewer is forced to fill in the gaps by using his own imagination. He is compelled to participate in the creative act, which I consider very important. #Quote by Antoni Tapies
Gaps quotes by Alexandra Adornetto
#155. To anyone else, Xavier's use of the word angel would have sounded like nothing more than a lovesick teenager professing his admiration. Only the two of us knew differently and now we both shared a secret- that brought us closer than ever. It was as if we had just sealed the bond between us, closed the gap, and made it final. #Quote by Alexandra Adornetto
Gaps quotes by Yosef Hayim Yerushalmi
#156. The historian does simply not come in to replenish the gaps of memory. He constantly challenges even those memories that have survived intact. #Quote by Yosef Hayim Yerushalmi
Gaps quotes by Atul Gawande
#157. Cost is the spectre haunting health reform. For many decades, the great flaw in the American health-care system was its unconscionable gaps in coverage. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Gaps quotes by Daniel Levin Becker
#158. There is no you in NewVillager, but there is a we. Your job thenceforth will be that of the bodhisattva, the guru, the gap-toothed docent with a serious thing for Whistler's Mother. There will be others, newervillagers than yourself, who never stood a chance either. Only through them do you stand any hope of tracing your footsteps back to where you began. #Quote by Daniel Levin Becker
Gaps quotes by Isambard Kingdom Brunel
#159. Aeroplanes are not designed by science, but by art in spite of some pretence and humbug to the contrary. I do not mean to suggest that engineering can do without science, on the contrary, it stands on scientific foundations, but there is a big gap between scientific research and the engineering product which has to be bridged by the art of the engineer. #Quote by Isambard Kingdom Brunel
Gaps quotes by Roberto Bolano
#160. He had a little single-story house, three bedrooms, a full bathroom and a half bathroom, a combined kitchen-living room-dining room with windows that faced west, a small brick porch where there was a wooden bench worn by the wind that came down from the mountains and the sea, the wind from the north, the wind through the gaps, the wind that smelled like smoke and came from the south. He had books he'd kept for more than twenty-five years. Not many. All of them old. He had books he'd bought in the last ten years, books he didn't mind lending, books that could've been lost or stolen for all he cared. He had books that he sometimes received neatly packaged and with unfamiliar return addresses, books he didn't even open anymore. He had a yard perfect for growing grass and planting flowers, but he didn't know what flowers would do best there--flowers, as opposed to cacti or succulents. There would be time (so he thought) for gardening. He had a wooden gate that needed a coat of paint. He had a monthly salary. #Quote by Roberto Bolano
Gaps quotes by Irving Stone
#161. I don't know myself," he said. "I sit down with a white board before the spot that strikes me, and I say, 'That white board must become something!' I work for a long time, I come back home dissatisfied, I put it away in the closet. When I have rested a little I go to look at it with a kind of fear. I am still dissatisfied because I have too clearly in my mind the splendid original to be content with what I have made of it. But after all, I find in my work an echo of what struck me. I see that nature has told me something, has spoken to me, and that I have put it down in shorthand. In my shorthand there may be words that cannot be deciphered, there may be mistakes or gaps, but there is something in it of what the woods or beach or figure has told me. Do you understand?" "No. #Quote by Irving Stone
Gaps quotes by Oliver Sacks
#162. The periodic table was incredibly beautiful, the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. I could never adequately analyze what I meant here by beauty – simplicity? coherence? rhythm? inevitability? Or perhaps it was the symmetry, the comprehensiveness of every element firmly locked into its place, with no gaps, no exceptions, everything implying everything else. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Gaps quotes by Michael Harris
#163. As we embrace a technology's gifts, we usually fail to consider what they ask from us in return - the subtle, hardly noticeable payments we make in exchange for their marvelous service. We don't notice, for example, that the gaps in our schedules have disappeared because we're too busy delighting in the amusements that fill them. We forget the games that childhood boredom forged because boredom itself has been outlawed. Why would we bother to register the end of solitude, of ignorance, of lack? Why would we care that an absence has disappeared? #Quote by Michael Harris
Gaps quotes by Melinda Haynes
#164. The water rippled when he leaned in; he studied what he saw. Against a background of blue sky, there was his face, broad of forehead and overly long, and he was surprised at the new look of age on him. To everybody else, I must look ten years beyond twenty-seven, he thought, and it made him glad. Even had begun to fear gaps and what they might mean. Wide-spanning spaces between age and its weight of language and ability had begun to feel like easy reasons for saying good-bye. He saw inside the calm reflection a gull flying low over his head, braced by clouds drifting east toward Runnelstown.
Turning back, he walked north around moss-based trees and finally found her digging wild onions growing thick next to fern. With her back to him she said, "Tired does one of two things-either builds the soul or breaks the heart. Can't decide which it is right now. All I know is I'm tired. #Quote by Melinda Haynes
Gaps quotes by Maria Popova
#165. Like any currency of value, the human imagination is a coin with two inseparable sides. It is our faculty of fancy that fills the disquieting gaps of the unknown with the tranquilizing certitudes of myth and superstition, that points to magic and witchcraft when common sense and reason fail to unveil causality. But that selfsame faculty is also what leads us to rise above accepted facts, above the limits of the possible established by custom and convention, and reach for new summits on the degree of courage, determined by some incalculable combination of nature, culture, and character. #Quote by Maria Popova
Gaps quotes by Henry Miller
#166. It is not enough to overthrow governments, masters, tyrants: one must overthrow his own preconceived ideas of right and wrong, good and bad, just and unjust. We must abandon the hard-fought trenches, we have dug ourselves into and come out into the open, surrender our arms, our possessions, our rights as individuals, classes, nations, peoples. A billion men seeking peace cannot be enslaved. We have enslaved ourselves, by our own petty, circumscribed view of life. It is glorious to offer one's life for a cause, but dead men accomplish nothing. Life demands that we offer something more - spirit, soul, intelligence, good-will. Nature is ever ready to repair the gaps caused by death, but nature cannot supply the intelligence, the will, the imagination to conquer the forces of death. Nature restores and repairs, that is all. It is man's task to eradicate the homicidal instinct which is infinite in its ramifications and manifestations. It is useless to call upon God, as it is futile to meet force with force. #Quote by Henry Miller
Gaps quotes by Amit Ray
#167. Create gaps between stimulus and reaction and the gap will show you the path. #Quote by Amit Ray
Gaps quotes by Michel De Certeau
#168. An absence of meaning opens a gap in time. #Quote by Michel De Certeau
Gaps quotes by Charles Lyell
#169. Hitherto, no rival hypothesis has been proposed as a substitute for the doctrine of transmutation; for 'independent creation,' as it is often termed, or the direct intervention of the Supreme Cause, must simply be considered as an avowal that we deem the question to lie beyond the domain of science. #Quote by Charles Lyell
Gaps quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#170. We use the mind to create ourselves. Stuck amid the inevitable gaps between the mint of imagination and the postholes of actuality, we stutter step through the stratum of objective and subjective reality. We constantly amend our internal mental maps. Each day we awaken from the nighttime dream world with a revised identity of ourselves. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Gaps quotes by Marcel Proust
#171. One pretended not to know that the body of a hostess was at the disposal of all comers, provided that her visiting list showed no gaps. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Gaps quotes by Paul Henri Thiry
#172. If a faithful account was rendered of man's ideas upon the Divinity, he would be obliged to acknowledge, that for the most part the word Gods has been used to express the concealed, remote, unknown causes of the effects he witnessed; that he applies this term when the spring of natural, the source of known causes ceases to be visible: as soon as he loses the thread of these causes, or as soon as his mind can no longer follow the chain, he solves the difficulty, terminates his research, by ascribing it to his gods; thus giving a vague definition to an unknown cause, at which either his idleness, or his limited knowledge, obliges him to stop. When, therefore, he ascribes to his gods the production of some phenomenon, the novelty or the extent of which strikes him with wonder, but of which his ignorance precludes him from unravelling the true cause, or which he believes the natural powers with which he is acquainted are inadequate to bring forth; does he, in fact, do any thing more than substitute for the darkness of his own mind, a sound to which he has been accustomed to listen with reverential awe? #Quote by Paul Henri Thiry
Gaps quotes by Jon Krakauer
#173. Some people feel like they don't deserve love. They walk away quietly into empty spaces, trying to close the gaps of the past. #Quote by Jon Krakauer
Gaps quotes by Tim Maudlin
#174. Atheism is the default position in any scientific inquiry, just as a-quarkism or a-neutrinoism was. That is, any entity has to earn its admission into a scientific account either via direct evidence for its existence or because it plays some fundamental explanatory role. Before the theoretical need for neutrinos was appreciated (to preserve the conservation of energy) and then later experimental detection was made, they were not part of the accepted physical account of the world. To say physicists in 1900 were 'agnostic' about neutrinos sounds wrong: they just did not believe there were such things.

As yet, there is no direct experimental evidence of a deity, and in order for the postulation of a deity to play an explanatory role there would have to be a lot of detail about how it would act. If, as you have suggested, we are not "good judges of how the deity would behave," then such an unknown and unpredictable deity cannot provide good explanatory grounds for any phenomenon. The problem with the 'minimal view' is that in trying to be as vague as possible about the nature and motivation of the deity, the hypothesis loses any explanatory force, and so cannot be admitted on scientific grounds. Of course, as the example of quarks and neutrinos shows, scientific accounts change in response to new data and new theory. The default position can be overcome. #Quote by Tim Maudlin
Gaps quotes by Alex Berenson
#175. Bigger spreads mean bigger gaps between what buyers pay and sellers receive. For example, a spread of 10 cents a share means that the buyer pays $100 more for 1,000 shares than the seller receives. #Quote by Alex Berenson
Gaps quotes by Jill Bolte Taylor
#176. I need to remember, however, that there are enormous gaps between what I know and what I think I know. I learned that I need to be very wary of my storyteller's potential for stirring up drama and trauma. #Quote by Jill Bolte Taylor
Gaps quotes by Neal Shusterman
#177. I suppose there are three kinds of people in this world. Some people live their lives around the holes―never finding them, never even worrying about them. Their lives are full and happy. Then there are others who keep falling through those hidden gaps, into nightmares they never knew existed. I wouldn't want to be one of them.
And then there's a few...restless people who spend our lives plugging holes in the unfinished corners of creation and building walls to hold back all the things that must never be seen.
Perhaps there's more holes than can be patched in a lifetime. But I've got to live on the hope that maybe, just maybe, we'll get them all...and the abyss will never look into us again. #Quote by Neal Shusterman
Gaps quotes by C.S. Lewis
#178. He wondered how he could ever have thought of the planets, even of the Earth, as islands of life and reality floating in a deadly void. Now with a certainty which never after deserted him, he saw the planets - as mere holes or gaps in the living heaven - excluded and rejected wastes of heavy matter and murky air, formed not by addition to, but by subtraction from, the surrounding brightness. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Gaps quotes by Djuna Barnes
#179. I couldn't ever boil potatoes over the heat of your affection. Your love would never bridge a gap; it wouldn't even fill up the hole that the mice came through ... #Quote by Djuna Barnes

#180. I always imagined how cool it would be to be the face of a Gap campaign! #Quote by Theophilus London
Gaps quotes by Terry Goodkind
#181. Once committed to fight, cut. Everything else is secondary. Cut. That is your duty, your purpose, your hunger. There is no rule more important, no commitment that overrides that one. Cut. Cut from the void, not from bewilderment. Cut the enemy as quickly and directly as possible. Cut decisively, resolutely. Cut into the enemy's strength. Flow through the gaps in his guard. Cut him. Cut him down utterly. Don't allow him a breath. Crush him. Cut him without mercy to the depths of his spirit.
-Richard Rahl #Quote by Terry Goodkind
Gaps quotes by Jerry A. Coyne
#182. IDers argue that such traits, involving many parts that must cooperate for that trait to function at all, defy Darwinian explanation. Therefore, by default, they must have been designed by a supernatural agent. This is commonly called the "God of the gaps" argument, and it is an argument from ignorance. What it really says is that if we don't understand everything about how natural selection built a train, that lack of understanding itself is evidence for super-natural creation. #Quote by Jerry A. Coyne
Gaps quotes by Michael Smith
#183. Immortality: "It is impossible to be conscious of being unconscious."

It is not possible to be aware of being unconscious from your own perspective. You cannot be aware of not being aware. You can be less aware/conscious, such as when you are asleep, but not completely unconscious (dead), because time would stand still for you. A billion years could pass, and you would not know it.

How do you know you are dead? It is not possible to be aware of any gaps in life; it is continuous and never-ending from your own point of view.

Death and birth are a continuous event from your own perspective.

You will die physically, but you will be born into a new physical body. Being born happens, or you would not be here now. You were born into this life. It is what we know happens. There is no evidence anything else happens. True or false? #Quote by Michael Smith

Gaps quotes by A. Helwa
#185. It suddenly became clear to me that the whole purpose of faith is not to be "good enough" before we begin on the path to God, but to come with all our deficiencies to God, knowing that only He can fill in our gaps through His mercy. #Quote by A. Helwa
Gaps quotes by Jeannette Haien
#186. One thing I've learned, Father--that in this life it's best to keep the then and the now and the what's-to-be as close together in your thoughts as you can. It's when you let gaps creep in, when you separate out the intervals and dwell on them, that you can't bear the sorrow. #Quote by Jeannette Haien
Gaps quotes by Francis Maitland Balfour
#187. The embryological record, as it is usually presented to us, is both imperfect and misleading. It may be compared to an ancient manuscript, with many of the sheets lost, others displaced, and with spurious passages interpolated by a later hand ... Like the scholar with his manuscript, the embryologist has by a process of careful and critical examination to determine where the gaps are present, to detect the later insertions, and to place in order what has been misplaced. #Quote by Francis Maitland Balfour
Gaps quotes by David Brock
#188. I'm kind of a builder of institutions. I think I've got some ability to look at what's out here, look at a playing field, and identify gaps and niches. #Quote by David Brock
Gaps quotes by Quinn Loftis
#189. You will become my best friend, my lover, and I will become yours. Even now I know you feel it, that no one in this world will ever love me as you will and no one will love you as I will. We were born to love each other and that love will grow stronger as time goes on. I worry that I won't make you happy," Fane's voice was so soft, laced with tight emotions, "but that wise voice helped me see that I will. I will also make you mad, sad, annoyed, and probably a little claustrophobic at times." Jacquelyn grinned at him, full of adoration and he pressed on encouraged by her response. " But I will do everything in my power to make you happy. My wolf will step in when my human side steps out of line. The wolf only sees black and white. All he understands is that you are our mate . He will love you, protect you, provide for you, play with you, and make you content while my human side fills in the gaps of emotions the wolf does not understand. You will make me a better Alpha, a better man. I will give you what no other man ever could, the other half of your soul. #Quote by Quinn Loftis

Gaps quotes by Nick Offerman

Gaps quotes by Pearl Zhu

Gaps quotes by Paulo Coelho

Gaps quotes by J.M. Coetzee
#194. I am spoken to not in words, which come to me quaint and veiled, but in signs, in conformations of face and hands, in postures of shoulders and feet, in nuances of tune and tone, in gaps and absences whose grammar has never been recorded. #Quote by J.M. Coetzee
Gaps quotes by Anne Rice
#195. 118. There are gaps in my education which no one could ever fill. But, they don't matter to me. I do not need to know science or algebra or geometry. Literature and music, painting and history-these are my passions. These are things that still, somehow in hours of quiet and lonesomeness, keep me alive. #Quote by Anne Rice
Gaps quotes by Kenneth C. Griffin
#196. The investment banks should either choose to be regulated as banks or should arrange to conduct their affairs to not require the stop-gap support of the Federal Reserve. #Quote by Kenneth C. Griffin
Gaps quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#197. Between thought and spoken word is a gap where intention can enter, the symbol be twisted aside, and the lie come to be. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Gaps quotes by Rowan Williams
#198. Loneliness has little to do with what we do or where we do it, whether we're married or unmarried, optimists or pessimists, heterosexual or homosexual. Loneliness has to do with the sudden clefts we experience in every human relation, the gaps that open up with such stomach-turning unexpectedness. In a brief moment, I and my brother or sister have moved away into different worlds, and there is no language we can share ... It is in the middle of intimacy that the reality of loneliness most dramatically appears. #Quote by Rowan Williams
Gaps quotes by W. Chan Kim
#199. Partnering, however, provides a way for companies to secure needed capabilities fast and effectively while dropping their cost structure. It allows a company to leverage other companies' expertise and economies of scale. Partnering includes closing gaps in capabilities through making small acquisitions when doing so is faster and cheaper, providing access to needed expertise that has already been mastered. #Quote by W. Chan Kim
Gaps quotes by Roger Wolcott Sperry
#200. The objective psychologist, hoping to get at the physiological side of behavior, is apt to plunge immediately into neurology trying to correlate brain activity with modes of experience ... The result in many cases only accentuates the gap between the total experience as studied by the psychologist and neural activity as analyzed by the neurologist. #Quote by Roger Wolcott Sperry
