Good Intentions quotes by Miguel Syjuco
#1. And yet,from the air you think her peaceful and unflustered. On the ground is a place tangled with good intentions and a tyrannical will to live. #Quote by Miguel Syjuco
Good Intentions quotes by Irvin S. Cobb
#2. Good motives butter no parsnips, and hell is paved with buttered parsnips. #Quote by Irvin S. Cobb
Good Intentions quotes by Neelam Saxena Chandra
#3. One may be doing all good and right things, but if they aren't done with good intentions, they are futile. Having right intentions is the most important! Even the prayers are of no use if not done in the right earnest! #Quote by Neelam Saxena Chandra
Good Intentions quotes by Charles Le Gai Eaton
#4. So many ruins bear witness to good intentions which went astray, good intentions unenlightened by any glimmer of wisdom. To bring religion to the people is a fine and necessary undertaking, but this is not a situation in which the proposed end can be said to justify the means. The further people have drifted from the truth, the greater is the temptation to water down the truth, glossing over its less palatable aspects and, in short, allowing a policy of compromise to become one of adulteration. In this way it is hoped that the common man – if he can be found – will be encouraged to find a small corner in his busy life for religion without having to change his ways or to grapple with disturbing thoughts. It is a forlorn hope. Standing, as it were, at the pavement's edge with his tray of goods, the priest reduces the price until he is offering his wares for nothing: divine judgement is a myth, hell a wicked superstition, prayer less important than decent behaviour, and God himself dispensable in the last resort; and still the passers-by go their way, sorry over having to ignore such a nice man but with more important matters demanding their attention. And yet these matters with which they are most urgently concerned are, for so many of them, quicksands in which they feel themselves trapped. Had they been offered a real alternative, a rock firm-planted from the beginning of time, they might have been prepared to pay a high price. #Quote by Charles Le Gai Eaton
Good Intentions quotes by Candi Pearson-Shelton
#5. Our lives are far more important than they may seem. Our legacies have the capacity to be treasures to cherish or trash to bury. We can affect the course of someone else's life by our actions, by our words, by our efforts. Jesus in us can make the glorious impact a treasure. Left to our own devices, we contribute little more than good intentions. #Quote by Candi Pearson-Shelton
Good Intentions quotes by Richie Norton
#6. When someone says you can't do something because of XYZ, is that true? Or are they playing with your life with their good intentions to keep you safe? #Quote by Richie Norton
Good Intentions quotes by Veronica Roth
#7. Maybe Dauntless was formed with good intentions, with the right ideals and the right goals. But it has strayed far from them. And the same is true of Erudite, I realize. A long time ago, Erudite pursued knowledge and ingenuity for the sake of doing good. Now they pursue knowledge and ingenuity with greedy hearts. I wonder if the other fractions suffer from the same problem #Quote by Veronica Roth
Good Intentions quotes by Georges Brassens
#8. It is for you this song
You, the stranger who, without fuss,
Though downtrodden yourself still smiled at me,
When the policemen took me off.

You who didn't join the applause when
The upper crust women and men
All the people with good intentions
Laughed to see me being led away.

It was merely a touch of honey
But it warmed my body through
And in my soul it burns on still
As the bright sun would do...

You, the stranger, when you will die
When the mortician bears you off
May he take you across the sky,
To the Father Eternal. #Quote by Georges Brassens
Good Intentions quotes by David Richo
#9. Trust in someone means that we no longer have to protect ourselves. We believe we will not be hurt or harmed by the other, at least not deliberately. We trust his or her good intentions, though we know we might be hurt by the way circumstances play out between us. We might say that hurt happens; it's a given of life. Harm is inflicted; it's a choice some people make. #Quote by David Richo
Good Intentions quotes by George Washington
#10. In the discharge of this trust I will only say that I have, with good intentions, contributed toward the organization and administration of the Government the best exertions of which a very fallible judgment was capable. #Quote by George Washington
Good Intentions quotes by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
#11. But if a good heart, a good intention, a subjective conviction are declared to be the sources from which actions derive their worth, then there is no longer any hypocrisy or evil at all; for whatever someone does, he can always turn it into something good through reflecting on his good intentions and motives, and so the moment of his convictions renders it good. #Quote by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
Good Intentions quotes by Matt Perman
#12. So we need to not simply aim to do good in all areas of life, but be diligent in seeking to learn what actually will do good. We need to be smart about doing good. Good intentions are not enough. We need to do good that actually helps. #Quote by Matt Perman
Good Intentions quotes by David Platt
#13. Good intentions, regular worship, Bible study, do not prevent blindness. Part of our sinful nature instinctively chooses to see what we want to see and to ignore what we want to ignore. #Quote by David Platt
Good Intentions quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#14. People with good intentions but limited understanding are more dangerous than people with total ill will. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Good Intentions quotes by John Wooden
#15. If I did only what I wanted to do, I would not be obedient to the Creator. Sometimes He wants us to do certain things that we may not feel like doing. When it comes to what God asks of us, we need more than good intentions we need to follow through fully. #Quote by John Wooden
Good Intentions quotes by Joseph Heller
#16. Certainly,nothing proceeded according to desire.In the long run, failure was the only thing that worked predictably. All else was accidental. Good intentions had miscarried, and bad ones had not improved. #Quote by Joseph Heller
Good Intentions quotes by Girdhar Joshi
#17. Only good intentions may not always translate into good results. #Quote by Girdhar Joshi
Good Intentions quotes by Baba Kalyani
#18. Everywhere in the world, whether manufacturing, trade or whatever, it is controlled by one apparatus and one policy perspective. Here we have one prime minister with good intentions, and six ministries running their own empires. This creates problems including the import culture. #Quote by Baba Kalyani
Good Intentions quotes by Daniell Koepke
#19. Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are simply toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren't inherently bad people, but they aren't the right people for us. #Quote by Daniell Koepke
Good Intentions quotes by Liberty Hyde Bailey
#20. A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them. #Quote by Liberty Hyde Bailey
Good Intentions quotes by Pipilotti Rist
#21. I'm always in awe of and respect humans for their ability to plan, but sometimes, good intentions are lost along the way. And often the way becomes the goal. #Quote by Pipilotti Rist
Good Intentions quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#22. Betrayal dressed in love and trimmed with the facade of good intentions is the most barbaric of all betrayals. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Good Intentions quotes by Rosa Brooks
#23. It has often been our best instincts, not our worst, that have led us to do harm in the world #Quote by Rosa Brooks
Good Intentions quotes by Penelope Lively
#24. People are always meaning well,' said Edward. 'That's often the trouble. #Quote by Penelope Lively
Good Intentions quotes by Brennan Manning
#25. For the Christian one dislocating, self-impoverishing hour spent with a child living in a broken-down dump is worth more than all the burial mounds of rhetoric, all the enfeebled good intentions, all the mumbling and fumbling and tardiness of those Christians who are so busy cultivating their own holiness that they cannot hear the anguished cry of the child in the slum. #Quote by Brennan Manning
Good Intentions quotes by Mat Johnson
#26. Curing America's racial pathology couldn't be done with good intentions or presidential elections. #Quote by Mat Johnson
Good Intentions quotes by Paul Rosman
#27. If your environment is stacked against you, you will use up your strong drive for self-control, and despite good intentions, your efforts may fail. #Quote by Paul Rosman
Good Intentions quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#28. What if good institutions were in fact the product of good intentions? What if the cynicism that is supposed to be rigor and the acquisitiveness that is supposed to be realism are making us forget the origins of the greatness we lay claim to - power and wealth as secondary consequences of the progress of freedom, or, as Whitman would prefer, Democracy? #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Good Intentions quotes by Aleksandar Hemon
#29. I deigned to suggest to him that it was also the American thing
America was nothing if not good intentions. #Quote by Aleksandar Hemon
Good Intentions quotes by Lorii Myers
#30. Put some action on your good intentions! #Quote by Lorii Myers
Good Intentions quotes by P. Carey Reid
#31. But our discussion has soured too much by this point; he will not be persuaded, so he has become insulted. I can see he will soon explode, but I hold his gaze and we both find a short instance of time in which to consider minimally, that we are both human beings with limitations, good intentions, and burdens to bear. #Quote by P. Carey Reid
Good Intentions quotes by Amy Chan
#32. Integrity is when your good intentions meet your actions - on a consistent basis. #Quote by Amy Chan
Good Intentions quotes by Jayant Swamy
#33. Good intentions. A simple thing. If only one knows what a tomorrow has in store for them. #Quote by Jayant Swamy
Good Intentions quotes by Cecilia Grant
#35. It's not unlike a marriage, the partnership. All the effort and good intentions in the world can't make things right if you choose poorly in the first place. #Quote by Cecilia Grant
Good Intentions quotes by Camille Paglia
#36. Sex is the point of contact between man and nature, where morality and good intentions fall to primitive urges. #Quote by Camille Paglia
Good Intentions quotes by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
#37. When Christ is not at the center, all of our good intentions are swallowed up by selfishness. #Quote by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
Good Intentions quotes by Peter Drucker
#38. They wrongly believe that good intentions move mountains. Bulldozers move mountains. But there are exceptions. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Good Intentions quotes by Isabel Paterson
#39. Most of the harm in the world is done by good people, and not by accident, lapse, or omission. It is the result of their deliberate actions, long persevered in, which they hold to be motivated by high ideals toward virtuous ends. #Quote by Isabel Paterson
Good Intentions quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
#40. Good intentions are no substitute for obedience. #Quote by Norman Vincent Peale
Good Intentions quotes by Peter Drucker
#41. An institution which is financed by a budget - or which enjoys a monopoly which the customer cannot escape - is rewarded for what it deserves rather than what it earns. It is paid for 'good intentions' and 'programs'. It is paid for not alienating important constituents rather than satisfying any one group. It is misdirected by the way it is being paid into defining performance and results as what will produce the budget rather than as what will produce contribution. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Good Intentions quotes by Winston S. Churchill
#42. In contrast to this, it is not in our interest to abandon Constantinople to Russia and Bulgaria to Bolshevism. But even here it should be possible, with good intentions, to reach a solution which will avoid the worst and facilitate what we want. It will be easier to find a solution if Moscow is clear that nothing obliges us to accept an arrangement which is not satisfactory to us. #Quote by Winston S. Churchill
Good Intentions quotes by Martin Luther
#43. [Re: Rom 10:2] It is commonly said: "The intention is good, and the purpose is true, but the means are misused." The goal which they seek is correct; but the way is wrong by which they endeavor to reach the goal. They want to go east and instead they are going west. The arrogant zeal of good intentions does the same today. The Apostle expresses himself very mildly when he says "not according to knowledge." He wishes this to be understood in the sense that they set about with blind zeal, unwise urgency, and foolish purpose. That is the greatest danger; and it should serve us as an example that we may speak of the faults of the neighbor with mildness. #Quote by Martin Luther
Good Intentions quotes by John Janzen
#44. How good would a Good Samaritan be, if a Good Samaritan would only intend to do good? #Quote by John Janzen
Good Intentions quotes by Mark Lawrence
#45. There's a road to hell that is paved with good intentions but it's a long route. The quicker path is paved with the kind of ignorance that clever men who just don't want to know are best at. #Quote by Mark Lawrence
Good Intentions quotes by Brigham Young
#46. Crying babies are like good intentions: Both should be carried out immediately! #Quote by Brigham Young
Good Intentions quotes by Mark Twain
#47. Half of the results of a good intentions are evil; half the results of an evil intention are good. #Quote by Mark Twain
Good Intentions quotes by Albert Goldbarth
#48. I think it's the future. At least, it's the future
we called "tomorrow." Here it is,
"today": one hundred cups of effort,
good intentions, small misunderstandings,
stretching away from the bed
and finally leading back to it. #Quote by Albert Goldbarth
Good Intentions quotes by Keith Joseph
#49. The question we must all ask ourselves is how Mr. Benn was able to come within striking distance of the very heart of our economic life in the first important part of the answer must be that our industry, economic life and society have been so debilitated by 30 years of Socialistic fashions that their very weakness tempts further inroads. The path to Benn is paved with 30 years of interventions: 30 years of good intentions: 30 years of disappointments. These have led the collectivists to say that we are failing only because we are taking half measures. The reality is that for 30 years the private sector of our economy has been forced to work with one hand tied behind its back by government and unions. Socialist measures and Socialist legacies have weakened free enterprise. #Quote by Keith Joseph
Good Intentions quotes by George Lakoff
#50. There is much to be said for the cynical liberal response. Much of it is true. Yet it has major flaws and is far from the whole story. First, it is a demonization of conservatives. It assumes that they are either rich, evil, self-serving power-mongers, or their paid agents, or dupes. The conservative ranks may well contain some of each. Yet most conservatives are not rich and see themselves as working for the benefit of the country rather than for their own benefit. There are too many idealistic conservatives of good intentions and moderate means for the demonization theory to be true. Second, #Quote by George Lakoff
Good Intentions quotes by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad
#51. Foreigners who once colonized us, who have done nothing to help us, these foreigners have no good intentions, #Quote by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad
Good Intentions quotes by James C. Collins
#52. Bad decisions made with good intentions, are still bad decisions. #Quote by James C. Collins
Good Intentions quotes by Eric Weiner
#53. Paganism, it turns out, was the original Icelandic religion before a mass conversion in the year 1000. That was largely seen as a business decision, and Icelanders have never been particularly good Christians. They attend church if someone is born or wed or dies, but otherwise they are, as one Icelander put it, "atheists with good intentions. #Quote by Eric Weiner
Good Intentions quotes by J.M. Coetzee
#54. The heart can be a mysterious organ, the heart and its movements. Dark, the Spanish call it. The dark heart, el oscuro cotazón. Are you sure you are not just a little dark-hearted, Paul, despite your many good intentions? #Quote by J.M. Coetzee
Good Intentions quotes by Tyconis D. Allison Ty
#55. Bad days will occur but always have good intentions. Being genuine is liberating to yourself and much appreciated by others. #Quote by Tyconis D. Allison Ty
Good Intentions quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#56. Because of the a priori element in intention, good intentions are so tempting - compared with a successive unfolding in time - and have so often in them some narcotic which develops an inner gaze instead of a resilience that begets energy. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Good Intentions quotes by Steven Erikson
#57. Envy shrugged. 'Can no value be found in good intentions?'
'What, precisely, are you trying to justify? And to me, or yourself?'
She glared, then quickened her pace. 'You're no fun at all,' she sniffed as she pulled
ahead, 'and presumptuous as well. I'm going to talk with Tool, his moods don't
No, they just hang there, twisting in the wind. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Good Intentions quotes by John Cassian
#58. We must, with God's help, eradicate the deadly poison of the demon of anger from the depths of our souls. So long as he dwells in our hearts and blinds the eyes of the heart with his somber disorders, we can neither discriminate what is for our good, nor achieve spiritual knowledge, nor fulfill our good intentions, nor participate in true life; and our intellect will remain impervious to the contemplation of the true, divine light; for it is written, 'Man's anger does not bring about the righteousness of God' (Jms. 1:20). #Quote by John Cassian
Good Intentions quotes by Patricia Wood
#59. She did her best but like Uncle E says, sometimes your best just ain't good enough. #Quote by Patricia Wood
Good Intentions quotes by J. Cornell Michel
#60. I'm just trying to do my part to save the world. #Quote by J. Cornell Michel
Good Intentions quotes by Claudia Gray
#61. Good intentions aren't enough. They're not meaningless, but - that's where we have to start. Not where we end. #Quote by Claudia Gray
Good Intentions quotes by David Limbaugh
#62. For liberals, supposedly good intentions always trump results. #Quote by David Limbaugh
Good Intentions quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#63. Liberals get credit for good intentions, and that's about it, because everything they do fails. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Good Intentions quotes by Jake Coburn
#64. You know how they say the path to hell is paved with good intentions? Well, maybe the path to heaven is paved with bad ones. #Quote by Jake Coburn
Good Intentions quotes by Miranda July
#65. It wasn't good, he wasn't good, he did not have good intentions. I stood there, and he stood there. He breathed out the bitter air that makes women doubt everything, and I breathed it in, as I had always done. #Quote by Miranda July
Good Intentions quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#66. May our hearts be filled with great love for one another. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Good Intentions quotes by Seneca.
#67. Be deaf to those who love you most of all; they pray for bad things with good intentions. #Quote by Seneca.
Good Intentions quotes by Thomas A. Edison
#68. A good intention, with a bad approach, often leads to a poor result. #Quote by Thomas A. Edison
Good Intentions quotes by Norman Mac Donald
#69. Do not imagine that the good you intend will balance the evil you perform #Quote by Norman Mac Donald
Good Intentions quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#70. Lady Kingsley, when you read this, do attempt to keep an open mind."

"I will if you will," she retorted hotly.

To her surprise, he chuckled. "I daresay neither of us will. It's a pity, too, because if we could ever see our way clear to agreeing on a matter, we might accomplish a great deal of good in this world."

It infuriated her that he could pretend to care even one whit for these boys. "Now you've confused me. I'd assumed that your reason for serving on so many charitable boards was to further your political aims. Yet all the time you were merely hoping to accomplish some 'good in this world.' How very astonishing."

Just that quickly, his amusement vanished. "While I don't pretend to be as morally superior as you and your late husband, my intentions are good, no matter what you make of them. It may shock you to learn that those of us with character flaws sometimes do as much good as those of you without. #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries
Good Intentions quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#71. Touched by an act of kindness, be kind to others. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Good Intentions quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#72. Live in peace with all mankind. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Good Intentions quotes by Daniel Webster
#73. The Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions #Quote by Daniel Webster
Good Intentions quotes by Michael Ennis
#74. Nevertheless I would be a hypocrite not to anticipate that the good intentions I brought to The Prince will also be the root of some other man's evil, if only because the way to the house of the Devil is the same for the good man and the bad - and the journey just as necessary for them both. The times change, but the nature of men does not. #Quote by Michael Ennis
Good Intentions quotes by Munir Butt
#75. I've found him to be a disappointment. Wonderful speech in Egypt, and good intentions aside, foreign policy needs to be firmly grounded in reality, and understanding of a sort of chaos theory ... [that is to say] it needs to be part good intention, part political intelligence, and part political savvy and knowledge of international interests and national burdens. President Obama has been extremely short-sighted in this sense, and if he fails, it will be a tragic blow for peaceniks and multilateralists the world over, and a manna from heaven for the Republican party. #Quote by Munir Butt
Good Intentions quotes by Peter Drucker
#76. Unless a decision has degenerated into work, it is not a decision; it is at best a good intention. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Good Intentions quotes by Stephen King
#77. He knew as well as we in our own world do that the road to hell is paved with good intentions
but he also knew that, for human beings, good intentions are sometimes all there are. Angels may be safe from damnation, but human beings are less fortunate things, and for them hell is always close. #Quote by Stephen King
Good Intentions quotes by Dick Armey
#78. America's Christian conservative movement is confronted with this divide: small-government advocates who want to practice their faith independent of heavy-handed government versus big-government sympathizers who want to impose their version of 'righteousness' on others through the hammer of law ... Our movement must avoid the temptations of power and those who would twist the good intentions of Christian voters to support policies that undermine freedom and grow government. #Quote by Dick Armey
Good Intentions quotes by R. Lee Wrights
#79. The mindset of legislating for the betterment of society guarantees the growth of the beast ... Politicians see government as a solution but the people see government as part of the problem. Beastly bureaucracy is born out of good intentions married to poor solutions. Only when politicians realize what constituents already know will the true problem even be addressed much less solved. #Quote by R. Lee Wrights
Good Intentions quotes by Libba Bray
#80. Some mornings, she'd wake and vow, Today, I will get it right. I won't be such an awful mess of a girl. I won't lose my temper or make unkind remarks. I won't go too far with a joke and feel the room go quiet with disapproval. I'll be good and kind and sensible and patient. The sort everyone loves. But by evening, her good intentions would have unraveled. She'd say the wrong thing or talk a little too loudly. She'd take a dare she shouldn't, just to be noticed. Perhaps Mabel was right, and she was selfish. But what was the point of living so quietly you made no noise at all? "Oh, Evie, you're too much," people said, and it wasn't complimentary. Yes, she was too much. She felt like too much inside all the time. So why wasn't she ever enough? #Quote by Libba Bray
Good Intentions quotes by Jim Goad
#81. My hatred is a thousand times more powerful than all your good intentions. #Quote by Jim Goad
Good Intentions quotes by Diane Moody
#82. He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.

The person who really wants to do something finds a way; the other person finds an excuse.

If you strip away all the excuses we dish up to God day after day, you'll find they all come down to this: laziness.

If you're serious about making your one-on-one time with God a priority, you've got to be willing to tackle that ugly D word: discipline. Discipline is an integral part of being committed to some form of daily, routine encounter with God.

Will you willingly ignore His invitation, throwing your alarm clock across the room, opting for more sleep? Will your good intentions get lost in a flurry of other important tasks? Or will you plan ahead, making sure you don't miss the opportunity of a lifetime - make that eternity - and give your appointed time with your Heavenly Father the priority it deserves?

Do you sincerely desire a personal, intimate relationship with your Lord?When we say we love God, yet make no time for Him in our lives, well - what kind of love is that?

I ask myself if there's anything more important than spending a few moments with my Jesus. The answer is always the same: nothing. Nothing is more important.

I'm responsible for my own spiritual growth.

Tragedy will always be a part of life on earth. We may not understand why God allows such things to happen. But we have a choice. Either we can turn our #Quote by Diane Moody
Good Intentions quotes by Margaret Thatcher
#83. For every idealistic peacemaker willing to renounce his self-defence in favour of a weapons-free world, there is at least one warmaker anxious to exploit the other's good intentions. #Quote by Margaret Thatcher
Good Intentions quotes by Rene Crevel
#84. Sixty years of virginity tried in vain to dam the waters of instinct as they burst through the granite of good intentions,the rock of irreproachablee conduct. #Quote by Rene Crevel
Good Intentions quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#85. But a society that protects some people through a safety net of schools, government-backed home loans, and ancestral wealth but can only protect you with the club of criminal justice has either failed at enforcing its good intentions or has succeeded at something much darker. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Good Intentions quotes by T. S. Eliot
#86. Most of the evil in this world is done by people with good intentions. #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Good Intentions quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#87. The consciousness of good intention is the greatest solace of misfortunes. #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Good Intentions quotes by J. Fally
#88. Lord, save him from those with good intentions, for they tended to leave the worst damage. #Quote by J. Fally
Good Intentions quotes by Maria Edgeworth
#89. Half the good intentions of my life have been frustrated by my unfortunate habit of putting things off till to-morrow. #Quote by Maria Edgeworth
Good Intentions quotes by Edith Wharton
#90. Theodora usually found that her good intentions matured too late for practical results. #Quote by Edith Wharton
Good Intentions quotes by Jeffrey Goldberg
#91. ...but the power of spilled blood overwhelmed the good intentions of those who wanted to end the violence. #Quote by Jeffrey Goldberg
Good Intentions quotes by Daniella Alonso
#92. People that do good in the world or that want to do good, that have good intentions and want to help other people, and people that aren't concerned with themselves but more [with] others and helping in service of others - that inspires me. #Quote by Daniella Alonso
Good Intentions quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#93. Let me soap you," he murmured.
"Thank you for your good intentions," she said, "but my two hands are quite enough."
"Even if it's just your back," the foreigner begged.
"That would be silly," she said. "People never soap their backs. #Quote by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Good Intentions quotes by Mario Vargas-Llosa
#94. This definition was not just limited to establishing a method for exploring the specificity of one human group in relation to another. It also desired, from the outset, to renounce the prejudiced and racist ethnography about which the West has never tired of berating itself. The intention could not have been loftier, but the well-known saying tells us that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Because #Quote by Mario Vargas-Llosa
Good Intentions quotes by George R R Martin
#95. You don't just have people who wake up in the morning and say, "What evil things can I do today, because I'm Mr. Evil?" People do things for what they think are justified reasons. Everybody is the hero of their own story, and you have to keep that in mind. If you read a lot of history, as I do, even the worst and most monstrous people thought they were the good guys. We're all very tangled knots. #Quote by George R R Martin
Good Intentions quotes by Woody Guthrie
#96. All of my words, if not well put nor well taken, are well meant. #Quote by Woody Guthrie
Good Intentions quotes by Darnell Lamont Walker
#97. Sex separation in the classroom leads to a bullshit socio-economic situation perpetuated by people with good intentions. #Quote by Darnell Lamont Walker
Good Intentions quotes by Margaret Thatcher
#98. No-one would remember the Good Samaritan if he'd only had good intentions; he had money as well. #Quote by Margaret Thatcher
Good Intentions quotes by Saul Bellow
#99. I thought to do something good by giving an interview to People, which was exceedingly foolish of me. I asked Aaron [Asher] to tell you that the Good Intentions Paving Company had fucked up again. The young interviewer turned my opinions inside out, cut out the praises and made it all sound like disavowal, denunciation and excommunication. Well, we're both used to this kind of thing, and beyond shock. In agreeing to take the call, and make a statement I was simply muddle-headed. But if I had been interviewed by an angel for the Seraphim and Cherubim Weekly I'd have said, as I actually did say to the crooked little slut, that you were one of our very best and most interesting writers. I would have added that I was greatly stimulated and entertained by your last novel, and that of course after three decades I understood perfectly well what you were saying about the writer's trade - how could I not understand, or miss suffering the same pains. Still our diagrams are different, and the briefest description of the differences would be that you seem to have accepted the Freudian explanation: A writer is motivated by his desire for fame, money and sexual opportunities. Whereas I have never taken this trinity of motives seriously. But this is an explanatory note and I don't intend to make a rabbinic occasion of it. Please accept my regrets and apologies, also my best wishes. I'm afraid there's nothing we can do about the journalists; we can only hope that they will die off as the dee #Quote by Saul Bellow
Good Intentions quotes by George R R Martin
#100. Ruling is hard. This was maybe my answer to Tolkien, whom, as much as I admire him, I do quibble with. Lord of the Rings had a very medieval philosophy: that if the king was a good man, the land would prosper. We look at real history and it's not that simple ... Real-life kings had real-life problems to deal with ... My people who are trying to rule don't have an easy time of it. Just having good intentions doesn't make you a wise king. #Quote by George R R Martin
Good Intentions quotes by Anthony Douglas Williams
#101. When our actions are based on good intentions our soul has not regrets. #Quote by Anthony Douglas Williams
Good Intentions quotes by Sherwood Smith
#102. He dropped the tapestry back into place and stood with his back to it, looking at me across the width of the room. "It seems," he said, "that seeking your opinion will not cease to embroil us in argument, whatever the cause. I apologize. I also realize trying to convince you of my good intentions is a fruitless effort, but my own conscience demanded that I make the attempt."
I couldn't think of any reply to make to that, so I whirled around and retreated into the library, my insides boiling with a nasty mixture of embarrassment and anger. Why did I always have to bring up that war
and pick a fight? What kind of answer was I looking for?
All I do is repeat the humiliations of last year. As if I haven't had enough of those, I thought grimly. And the worst thing was, I wouldn't dare to go near that room again, despite his offer at the beginning of the encounter
an encounter which was thoroughly my own fault. #Quote by Sherwood Smith
Good Intentions quotes by Deepak Chopra
#103. If we are living under the assumption that we are only one way or another, inside a limited spectrum of human qualities, then we would have to question why more of us aren't wholly satisfied with our lives right now. Why do we have access to so much wisdom yet fail to have the strength and courage to act upon our good intentions by making powerful choices? And most important, why do we continue to act out in ways that go against our value system and all that we stand for? We will assert that it is because of our unexamined life, our darker self, our shadow self where our unclaimed power lies #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Good Intentions quotes by Stephen King
#104. knife. "Sure you have," Andy agreed. "But you don't do it. Because guys like us, Red, we know there's a third choice. An alternative to staying simon-pure or bathing in the filth and the slime. It's the alternative that grown-ups all over the world pick. You balance off your walk through the hog-wallow against what it gains you. You choose the lesser of two evils and try to keep your good intentions in front of you. And I guess you judge how well you're doing by how well you sleep at night... #Quote by Stephen King
Good Intentions quotes by Andrew James Pritchard
#105. However, it's usually random acts of good intent, like this one, which get you into the worst trouble in the long run. They say that if you want to change the world then you should be that change you want to see. Well that's what Gandhi said and see what they did to him. Ya, random acts of good intent are the ones that just might get you killed. The further you stick your neck out for others the more likely it's going to chopped, or at least get a large heavy albatross around it. #Quote by Andrew James Pritchard
Good Intentions quotes by Colleen Hoover
#106. How can two good people both have such good intentions end up with feelings, derived from all the goodness, that are so incredibly bad? #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Good Intentions quotes by Cindy Gallop
#107. I have a low tolerance for people who complain about things but never do anything to change them. This led me to conclude that the single largest pool of untapped natural resources in this world is human good intentions that are never translated into actions. #Quote by Cindy Gallop
Good Intentions quotes by Peter F. Drucker
#108. Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work. #Quote by Peter F. Drucker
Good Intentions quotes by Debasish Mridha
#109. If your intentions are good, nothing bad can happen. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Good Intentions quotes by Charles Simmons
#110. Good intentions are very mortal and perishable things. Like very mellow and choice fruit, they are difficult to keep. #Quote by Charles Simmons
Good Intentions quotes by Vincent De Paul
#111. An honorable man would never abandon his friend in time of need, especially if they were in a foreign country. Why? For fear of acting like a coward or of being boorish. I repeat, I admire the fact that, those persons have, through human respect, more courage than Christians and priests have, through charity or through their good intentions. #Quote by Vincent De Paul
Good Intentions quotes by Lloyd Alexander
#112. Had I done it sooner, perhaps he might have lived. He was a man of courage and good heart, a proud man. Now he is dead. I saved the signal to use in a worthy cause, and when I found one it was wasted."

"Wasted?" answered Fflewddur. "I think not. Since you did your best and didn't begrudge using it, I shouldn't call it wasted at all. #Quote by Lloyd Alexander
Good Intentions quotes by Paul Washer
#113. Holiness is not merely a feeling, state of mind, or good intention. It involves practical separation from sin and real separation unto God. #Quote by Paul Washer
Good Intentions quotes by Napoleon Hill
#114. Good intentions are useless until they are expressed in appropriate action! #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Good Intentions quotes by Radhanath Swami
#115. If our mind is in conflict, not balanced with our body and with the needs of the soul, then there is a fundamental disunity in our life. Only if we have unity within ourselves, we can create unity in the world around us. You can't give something you don't have, even if you have all good intentions #Quote by Radhanath Swami
Good Intentions quotes by Paul David Tripp
#116. When I come to the Lord after I've blown it, I've only one argument to make. It's not the argument of the difficulty of the environment that I am in. It's not the argument of the difficult people that I'm near. It's not the argument of good intentions that were thwarted in some way.

I come to the Lord with only one appeal; his mercy. I've no other defense. I've no other standing. I've no other hope. I can't escape the reality of my biggest problem; me! So I appeal to the one thing in my life that's sure and will never fail. I appeal to the one thing that guaranteed not only my acceptance with God, but the hope of new beginnings and fresh starts. I appeal on the basis of the greatest gift I ever have or ever will be given.

I leave the courtroom of my own defense, I come out of hiding and I admit who I am. But I'm not afraid, because I've been personally and eternally blessed. Because of what Jesus has done, God looks on me with mercy. It's my only appeal, it's the source of my hope, it's my life. Mercy, mercy me! #Quote by Paul David Tripp
Good Intentions quotes by Harvey MacKay
#117. Good intentions aren't enough. People have good intentions when they set a goal to do something, but then they miss a deadline or other milestone. #Quote by Harvey MacKay
Good Intentions quotes by Daniel Webster
#118. Good intentions will always be pleaded for any assumption of power. The Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good master, but they mean to be master. #Quote by Daniel Webster
Good Intentions quotes by Angela Duckworth
#119. How often do people start down a path and then give up on it entirely? How many treadmills, exercise bikes, and weight sets are at this very moment gathering dust in basements across the country? How many kids go out for a sport and then quit even before the season is over? How many of us vow to knit sweaters for all of our friends but only manage half a sleeve before putting down the needles? Ditto for home vegetable gardens, compost bins, and diets. How many of us start something new, full of excitement and good intentions, and then give up - permanently - when we encounter the first real obstacle, the first long plateau in progress?

Many of us, it seems, quit what we start far too early and far too often. Even more than the effort a gritty person puts in on a single day, what matters is that they wake up the next day, and the next, ready to get on that treadmill and keep going."

Excerpt From: Angela Duckworth. "Grit." iBooks. #Quote by Angela Duckworth
Good Intentions quotes by Dee Dee Myers
#120. This is a generation weaned on Watergate, and there is no presumption of innocence and no presumption of good intentions. Instead, there is a presumption that, without relentless scrutiny, the government will misbehave. #Quote by Dee Dee Myers
Good Intentions quotes by Veronica Roth
#121. Formed with good intentions, with the right ideals and the right goals. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Good Intentions quotes by Barry Graham
#122. The only ones who ever went to a Tory conference with good intentions were the IRA. #Quote by Barry Graham
Good Intentions quotes by Cindy Gallop
#123. If I ran the world, I would find a way to bring the wealth of human good intentions and corporate good intentions together - to activate them collectively into shared action against shared objectives that produces shared hard, tangible results. #Quote by Cindy Gallop
Good Intentions quotes by Sujish Kandampully
#124. Followers Everywhere

To start with;
Facebook : 10K followers !!
Instagram : 710 followers !!
Twitter : 20K followers !!
Followers!! Followers!! And Followers!!
Well, who are these followers? Just more than being a crowd of audience, who are they? Ever thought of? And for what purpose are they following you or someone else? Is it because you are a famous personality, a best friend, or you're someone who holds a high status in the society or just because you're simply rich enough to be followed ?
Everyone live their life the way they want to. No one is bound to live under certain limitations or boundaries. Every individual have their own freedom in life. Each one of them is unique too. But what holds us different from others is the work we do for ourselves and for our society. Our behaviour, personality, nature, our attitude towards life and our talents hold us apart from others. Some people are really good and some are really worse than you ever thought of. What I'm trying to say is that some are 'legally' good and they may or may not hold a high position in the society and some are 'illegally' good and they may or may not hold a high position in the society.
I just want to say that follow people for who they actually are, for the good work they do for themselves and for everyone. And respect them by being their true follower in a true sense. The person whom you follow doesn't need to be a rich or poor. A person should be #Quote by Sujish Kandampully
Good Intentions quotes by Cassandra Clare
#125. She had thought once that there were good people and bad people, that there was a side of light and a side of darkness, but she no longer thought that. She had seen evil, in her brother and her father, the evil of good intentions gone wrong and the evil of sheer desire for power. But in goodness there was also no safety: Virtue could cut like a knife, and the fire of Heaven was blinding. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Good Intentions quotes by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
#126. The great Tibetan meditator Gungtang Jampelyang once asked
'What is the difference between a wise man and a fool?'
The difference lies in their intention. A wise person is someone who has a good intention, not someone who merely possesses knowledge. #Quote by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
Good Intentions quotes by Katharine Graham
#127. There seems to me nothing very bad about a nation's capital having good intentions - and when the intentions are magnificent, so much the better. #Quote by Katharine Graham
Good Intentions quotes by Paul Newman
#128. A man can only be judged by his actions, and not by his good intentions or his beliefs #Quote by Paul Newman
Good Intentions quotes by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
#129. Hell is paved with good intentions. Heaven is paved with Oreos. #Quote by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
Good Intentions quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#130. It is quite normal to see good intentions, when not carried out with moderation, urging men to actions which are truly vicious. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Good Intentions quotes by Dean Koontz
#131. As individuals, as families, as neighbors, as members of one community, people of all races and political views are usually decent, kind, compassionate. But in large corporations or governments, when great power accumulates in their hands, some become monsters even with good intentions. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Good Intentions quotes by John Of Kronstadt
#132. O, how easy it would appear to be to live in simplicity and love, and yet how difficult it is for our corrupt hearts to live in love! #Quote by John Of Kronstadt
Good Intentions quotes by Shawn Hatosy
#133. Wile E. Coyote is a coyote with nothing but good intentions. But Road Runner comes along and is unattainable, he wants it and can't get it, and thus he becomes a villain that is impossible to be around. Bill O'Reilly is a villain that is so in love with himself and the sound of his voice that he's literally become the personification of evil. #Quote by Shawn Hatosy
Good Intentions quotes by Clarence Thomas
#134. Government cannot make us equal; it can only recognize, respect, and protect us as equal before the law. That [affirmative action] programs may have been motivated, in part, by good intentions cannot provide refuge from the principle that under our Constitution, the government may not make distinctions on the basis of race. #Quote by Clarence Thomas
Good Intentions quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#135. Hell, they says, is paved with good intentions. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Good Intentions quotes by Mark Slouka
#136. And yet, far off, I can hear something whispering that this compulsion to do, to intrude ourselves, to improve on what is
even when wholly well intentioned, particularly when wholly well intentioned
is the source of all our troubles. #Quote by Mark Slouka
Good Intentions quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#137. He was kindhearted, in a way. You know the sort of kind heart: it made him uncomfortable more often than it made him do anything; and even when he did anything, it did not prevent him from grumbling, losing his temper and swearing (mostly to himself). #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Good Intentions quotes by Dennis Prager
#138. Wisdom: People attain wisdom in large part by remembering what happened in the past. No generation can attain wisdom without studying and remembering the past. None of those who believed in the 1960's aphorism, 'Never trust anyone over thirty,' became a wise person. Without wisdom, all the good intentions in the world amount to nothing. Intending to do good without having wisdom is like intending to fly an airplane with no knowledge of airplanes or the laws of aerodynamics. Good intentions without wisdom lead to either nothing or to actual evil. #Quote by Dennis Prager
Good Intentions quotes by Jennifer Latham
#139. There's always been a love-hate thing between me and running. First off, if you don't get started at the ass crack of dawn, the Oklahoma summer sun will melt you into a puddle of good intentions. Plus, it hurts. I mean, have you ever seen a happy jogger? We scowl. We pant and grimace. In fact, if you ever see one of us smiling, you should assume we're a complete psychopath and run for your life. #Quote by Jennifer Latham
Good Intentions quotes by Curtis Jackson
#140. I think I'll be going to Heaven, because I had good intentions. But my actions are another thing. #Quote by Curtis Jackson
Good Intentions quotes by Joan Didion
#141. Although to be driven back upon oneself is an uneasy affair at best, rather like trying to cross a border with borrowed credentials, it seems to me now the one condition necessary to the beginning of self-respect. Most of our platitudes notwithstanding, self-deception remains the most difficult deception. The tricks that work on others count for nothing in that very well-lit back alley where one keeps assignations with oneself: no winning smiles will do here, no prettily drawn lists of good intentions. #Quote by Joan Didion
Good Intentions quotes by John Ortberg
#142. Habits eat good intentions for breakfast. #Quote by John Ortberg
Good Intentions quotes by George Eliot
#143. Uncomfortable thoughts must be got rid of by good intentions for the future, #Quote by George Eliot
Good Intentions quotes by Karen Kilgariff
#145. Politeness doesn't require actual humanity. It's just cultural ritual. Kindness means you actually care and have good intentions toward a person. It means you think about them as much as you think about yourself. Politeness is fancy curtains in your front window. Kindness is the home-cooked meal on your dinner table. #Quote by Karen Kilgariff
Good Intentions quotes by Basil King
#146. In doing one's work primarily for God, the fear of undue restriction is put, sooner or later, out of the question. He pays me and He pays me well. He pays me and He will not fail to pay me. He pays me not merely for the rule of thumb task, which is all that men recognize, but to everything else I bring to my job in the way of industry, good intentions and cheerfulness. If the Lord loveth a cheerful giver, as St. Paul says, we may depend upon it that He loveth a cheerful worker; and where we can cleave the way to His love there we find His endless generosity. #Quote by Basil King
Good Intentions quotes by William Ellery Channing
#147. A general loftiness of sentiment, independence of men, consciousness of good intentions, self-oblivion in great objects, clear views of futurity; thoughts of the blessed companionship of saints and angels, trust in God as the friend of truth and virtue,
these are the states of mind in which I should live. #Quote by William Ellery Channing
Good Intentions quotes by Elena Ferrante
#148. Good feelings are fragile, with me love doesn't last. Love for a man doesn't last, not even love for a child, it soon gets a hole in it. You look in the hole and you see the nebula of good intentions mixed up with the nebula of bad. #Quote by Elena Ferrante
Good Intentions quotes by Narendra Modi
#149. Good governance with good intentions is the hallmark of our government. Implementation with integrity is our core passion. #Quote by Narendra Modi
Good Intentions quotes by Michelle Yeoh
#150. When you face up to bad things in the past, the most important thing is not to allow them to happen today or in the future, and as storytellers, we must play our part in that. #Quote by Michelle Yeoh
Good Intentions quotes by M.F. Moonzajer
#151. If God had good intentions, he would have rewarded the sex. #Quote by M.F. Moonzajer
Good Intentions quotes by John Snyder
#152. Studying a book that was finished nearly two thousand years ago may appear to some like an interesting but somewhat impractical pursuit. Quaint and antiquarian, the diligent examination of the Bible might seem better suited to an old seminary professor or a historian. We probably never actually talk this way, but we are all tempted to think like this when the busy cares of life press in on us. Reading the Bible gets placed on a mental shelf of good intentions, where it remains admired, not seriously examined and applied. #Quote by John Snyder
Good Intentions quotes by Jennifer Lopez
#153. I had found that taking risks, being true to myself, and making decisions with good intentions can exceed even my own expectations. #Quote by Jennifer Lopez
Good Intentions quotes by Annette Simmons
#154. In order to tell you a story about who I am and why I am here, I must spend a little time asking myself...questions. This is usually done at a superficial level as quickly as possible."

The self-diagnostic process that finds meaningful stories scares the hell out of people who aren't sure they are living meaningful lives. Once they reflect, most people do find that their lives are plenty meaningful (if a little out of balance). However, the process of self-examination tests your faith that your organization and your group are basically good people with good intentions. Groups that avoid deep examination seem to be anxious that honest self-examination might expose hypocrisy or emptiness. I've found that anxiety to be overstated in most cases."

First attempts at group stories are often highly aspirational in that the story is more about who we wished we were, rather than who we are. Stories that aspire to more than we can back up risk sounding hypocritical."

When our stories are sought and found from the subjective statement that "I have a lot to learn from other people", they invite difference...Gathering stories teaches you how to get outside your own experiences and experience life as others might. #Quote by Annette Simmons
Good Intentions quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#155. Lying very still and thinking very little is the most inexpensive medicine for all the sicknesses of the soul, and when administered with good intentions it grows more and more pleasant with each passing hour. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Good Intentions quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#156. The first day of January always presents to my mind a train of very solemn and important reflections and a question more easily asked than answered frequently occurs viz: How have I improved the past year and with [what] good intentions do I view the dawn of its successor? #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Good Intentions quotes by Criss Jami
#157. Good intentions but bad results; bad results but lessons learned. There is a dark corner on every task beautiful and a beautiful corner on every task dark. #Quote by Criss Jami
Good Intentions quotes by Albert Camus
#158. The evil that is in this world always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence, if they lack understanding. On the whole, men are more good than bad; that however isn't the real point. But they are more or less ignorant, and it is this that we call vice or virtue; #Quote by Albert Camus
Good Intentions quotes by Alex Blackwell
#159. A promise kept is trust coming to life. A promise kept is more powerful than a good intention, a thought or any material comfort. A promise kept tells the other person they are valued, respected and loved. #Quote by Alex Blackwell
Good Intentions quotes by Terry Pratchett
#160. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. (This is not actually true. The raid to Hell is paved with frozen door-to-door salesman. On weekends, many of the younger demons go ice skating down it.) #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Good Intentions quotes by Craig Groeschel
#161. If we want to be better than normal we must move from good intentions to what I call God intentions. #Quote by Craig Groeschel
Good Intentions quotes by Storm Constantine
#162. The Gelaming regarded themselves as a force for good, and in many ways they were, but they were also inexorable and their compassion could often feel like oppression. #Quote by Storm Constantine
Good Intentions quotes by Robert Briffault
#163. The hell of human suffering, evil and oppression is paved with good intentions. The men who have most injured and oppressed humanity, who have most deeply sinned against it, were according to their standards and their conscience good men; what was bad in them, what wrought moral evil and cruelty, treason to truth and progress, was not at all in their intentions, in their purpose, in their personal character, but in their opinions. #Quote by Robert Briffault
Good Intentions quotes by Max Hastings
#164. Here was a manifestation of a huge, historic British folly, repeated over many centuries including the twenty-first: the adoption of gesture strategy, committing small forces as an earnest of good intentions, heedless of their gross inadequacy for the military purpose at hand. #Quote by Max Hastings
Good Intentions quotes by Gurcharan Das
#165. Good intentions are useless in the absence of common sense. - JAMI, BAHARISTAN #Quote by Gurcharan Das
Good Intentions quotes by David Mitchell
#166. What man ain't the honestest cove in his own eyes?" Grote's round face is a bronze moon in the dark. "'Tain't good intentions what paves the road to hell: it's self-justifyin's. #Quote by David Mitchell
Good Intentions quotes by Milton Friedman
#167. Whenever we depart from voluntary cooperation and try to do good by using force, the bad moral value of force triumphs over good intentions. #Quote by Milton Friedman
Good Intentions quotes by Thomas Sowell
#168. Failure is a big part of a free market's success. People fail to live up to their potential, or to carry out all their good intentions, in all kinds of economic and political systems. Capitalism makes them pay a price for their failures, while socialism, feudalism, fascism and other systems enable personal failures, especially by those at the top, to be ignored. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Good Intentions quotes by Jennifer Crusie
#169. Books provide a handy shorthand when Rory's mostly MIA father, Christopher, is first introduced to viewers. Christopher's offer to buy Rory the Compact Oxford English Dictionary she covets is sincere; his lack of ability to follow through on his good intentions is Christopher in a nutshell. #Quote by Jennifer Crusie
Good Intentions quotes by Mathieu Kassovitz
#170. Like anywhere, we had to make people understand that we were there with good intentions, and that we were there with respect. We started making contacts with the people in the neighborhood three months before shooting began, so that everyone involved was comfortable. #Quote by Mathieu Kassovitz
Good Intentions quotes by Tom Selleck
#171. We judge ourselves by our good intentions, but we're judged by our last word. #Quote by Tom Selleck
Good Intentions quotes by Margaret Atwood
#172. My good intentions are completely lethal. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Good Intentions quotes by Charles Krauthammer
#173. The results of the Great Society experiments started coming in and began showing that, for all its good intentions, the War on Poverty was causing irreparable damage to the very communities it was designed to help. #Quote by Charles Krauthammer
Good Intentions quotes by Lori Nawyn
#174. Today I am so grateful that God knows my heart.
Others may misunderstand my good intentions,
judge my words or deeds, find fault,
or blame what they truly do not understand.
But God knows my heart.
He knows I am learning, trying, endeavoring,
to be all He created me to be. #Quote by Lori Nawyn
Good Intentions quotes by Phil Mitchell
#175. Be a Force of Good in the World. You can't change everything. #Quote by Phil Mitchell
Good Intentions quotes by John Dewey
#176. One lives with so many bad deeds on one's conscience and some good intentions in one's heart. #Quote by John Dewey
Good Intentions quotes by Jacqueline Novogratz
#177. They say a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. I took mine and fell flat on my face. As a young woman, I dreamed of changing the world. In my twenties, I went to africa to try and save the continent, only to learn that Africans neither wanted nor needed saving. Indeed, when I was there, I saw some of the worst that good intentions, traditional charity, and aid can produce ...
I concluded that if I could only nudge the world a little bit, maybe that would be enough.
But nudging isn't enough. #Quote by Jacqueline Novogratz
Good Intentions quotes by Alysha Speer
#178. Everything starts out as just friends, right? Everything. But then things change and suddenly you're in love with someone and your whole world is flipped upside down ... But you always have good intentions. Everything always starts out as just friends. #Quote by Alysha Speer
Good Intentions quotes by Edward Albee
#179. Dashed hopes and good intentions. Good, better, best, bested. #Quote by Edward Albee
Good Intentions quotes by John Howard Griffin
#180. For so long as we condone injustice by a small but powerful group, we condone the destruction of all social stability, all real peace, all trust in man's good intentions toward his fellow man. #Quote by John Howard Griffin

#181. If the road to hell is paved with good intentions, compromises on principles are the street lights #Quote by Garry Kasparov
Good Intentions quotes by Criss Jami
#182. The purest regret, no matter what, is thinking you didn't love enough. #Quote by Criss Jami
Good Intentions quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#183. Good intentions and earnest effort are not enough. Only Jesus can make an otherwise futile life productive. #Quote by Charles R. Swindoll
Good Intentions quotes by Patrick Lencioni
#184. The idea is that your clients are looking for good suggestions, and they don't mind sifting through some not-so-good ones as long as they're offered with good intentions and with no ego attached. #Quote by Patrick Lencioni
Good Intentions quotes by Joe Paterno
#185. We shall act with good intentions, but at times we will be wrong. When we are, let us admit it and try to right the situation. #Quote by Joe Paterno
Good Intentions quotes by Kosha Joubert
#186. One of the most underutilized resources we have on the planet today is the good intentions of citizens and our willingness to make a difference. #Quote by Kosha Joubert
Good Intentions quotes by Graham Greene
#187. Is confidence based on a rate of exchange? We used to speak of sterling qualities. Have we got to talk now about a dollar love? A dollar love, of course, would include marriage and Junior and Mother's Day, even though later it might include Reno or the Virgin Islands or wherever they go nowadays for their divorces. A dollar love had good intentions, a clear conscience, and to Hell with everybody. #Quote by Graham Greene
Good Intentions quotes by Suze Orman
#188. So many financial dreams are thwarted by the failure to act upon good intentions. #Quote by Suze Orman
Good Intentions quotes by Tim Walberg
#189. Good intentions can often lead to unintended consequences. It is hard to imagine a law intended for the workforce known to Henry Ford can serve the needs of a workplace shaped by the innovations of Bill Gates. #Quote by Tim Walberg
Good Intentions quotes by Zach Wamp
#190. Now, the United Nations is an organization that I believe was founded with good intentions. As a matter of fact, a prominent Tennessean named Cordell Hull was very involved with it. #Quote by Zach Wamp
Good Intentions quotes by Clayton M Christensen
#191. You can talk all you want about having a clear purpose and strategy for your life, but ultimately this means nothing if you are not investing the resources you have in a way that is consistent with your strategy. In the end, a strategy is nothing but good intentions unless it's effectively implemented. #Quote by Clayton M Christensen
Good Intentions quotes by Willard Gaylin
#192. Spare me therefore, your good intentions, your inner sensitivities, your unarticulated and unexpressed love. And spare me also these tedious psycho-historians which, by exposing the goodness inside the bad man, and the evil in the good-invariably establish a vulgar and perverse egalitarianism, as if the arrangement of what is outside and what inside makes no moral difference. #Quote by Willard Gaylin
Good Intentions quotes by Joan Didion
#193. It is a way of talking that tends to preclude further discussion, which may well be its intention: the public life of liberal Hollywood comprises a kind of dictatorship of good intentions, a social contract in which actual and irreconcilable disagreement is as taboo as failure or bad teeth, a climate devoid of irony. #Quote by Joan Didion
Good Intentions quotes by Robert Southey
#194. It has been more wittily than charitably said that hell is paved with good intentions; they have their place in heaven also. #Quote by Robert Southey
Good Intentions quotes by Nicholas D. Kristof
#195. Capitalism, it turns out, can achieve what charity and good intentions sometimes cannot. Microfinance has done more to bolster the status of women, and to protect them from abuse, than any laws could accomplish. #Quote by Nicholas D. Kristof
Good Intentions quotes by Thom Yorke
#196. I think we're entering a very dangerous time. The West has set itself up, decided it's in charge, not for good intentions, not for the benefit of mankind. #Quote by Thom Yorke
Good Intentions quotes by Sam Jordison
#197. The to-read pile is more than just a physical stack of books: it's a tower of ambitions failed, hopes unrealised, good intentions unfulfilled. Worse still, it's a cold hard reminder of mortality. Already, I have intentions to read more books than I can hope to manage in a normal lifetime. How will this pile of books taunt me when I'm 64? #Quote by Sam Jordison
Good Intentions quotes by Douglas Crockford
#198. In JavaScript, there is a beautiful, elegant, highly expressive language that is buried under a steaming pile of good intentions and blunders. #Quote by Douglas Crockford
Good Intentions quotes by Brad D. Smith
#199. Good intentions often get muddled with very complex execution. The last time the government tried to make taxes easier, it created a 1040 EZ form with a 52-page help booklet. #Quote by Brad D. Smith
Good Intentions quotes by Walter Brueggemann
#200. Quite clearly, the one thing the dominant culture cannot tolerate or co-opt is compassion, the ability to stand in solidarity with the victims of the present order. It can manage charity and good intentions, but it has no way to resist solidarity with pain or grief. So #Quote by Walter Brueggemann
Good Intentions quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#201. One's own free and unfettered volition, one's own caprice, however wild, one's own fancy, inflamed sometimes to the point of madness - that is the one best and greatest good, which is never taken into consideration because it cannot fit into any classification and the omission of which sends all systems and theories to the devil. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Good Intentions quotes by Amy Lunderman
#202. The only good thing, is that the cold wakes her up and she doesn't have to struggle to stay conscious. The bad thing, is that the numbness is fading away now, and her whole body is racked with pain. #Quote by Amy Lunderman

#204. I just play to good people; they seem to like what I do, and the more they like it, the more I play. #Quote by John Hunter
Good Intentions quotes by Federico Fellini
#205. There is no such thing as a good paparazzo. A good paparazzo, that's a paparazzo who has had his camera broken. In fact, they are bandits, thieves of photography. (Statement after photographs were published showing Jackie Onassis sunbathing nude.) #Quote by Federico Fellini
Good Intentions quotes by Lao-Tzu
#206. The sage does not hoard. The more he helps others, the more he benefits himself, The more he gives to others, the more he gets himself. The Way of Heaven does one good but never does one harm. The Way of the sage is to act but not to compete. #Quote by Lao-Tzu

Good Intentions quotes by J. A. Jance
#208. my cross to bear in life, to always want to help, but to never quite measure up, never be there quite on time to do any good, always to miss the mark. #Quote by J. A. Jance
Good Intentions quotes by Becca Fitzpatrick
#209. His mouth twisted into a perceptive, sexy smile.


"Hmm?" I looked away, flustered, automatically using irritation to cover my discomfort up. "What does 'hmm' have to do with anything? Could you ever use more than five words? All this grunting and miced words make you come across--primal."

His smile tipped higher. "Primal."

"You're impossible."

"Me Jev, you Nora."

"Stop it." But I nearly smiled in spite of myself.

"Since we're keeping it primal, you smell good," he observed. Hw moved closer, makin me acutely aware of his size, the rise and fall of his chest, the warm burn of his skin on mine. Electricity tingled along my scalp, and I shuddered with pleasure.

"It's called a shower...," I began automatically, then trailed off. My memory snagged, taken aback by a compelling and forceful sense of undue familiarity. "Soap, shampoo, hot water," I added, almost as an afterthought.

"Naked. I know the drill," Jev said, something unreadable passing over his eyes.

Unsure how to proceed, I attempted to wash away the moment with an airy laugh. "Are you flirting with me, Jev?"

"Does it feel that way to you?"

"I don't know you well enough to say either way." I tried to keep my voice level, neutral even.

"Then we'll have to change that."

Still uncertain of his motives, I cleared my throat. Two could play this game. "Running from bad #Quote by Becca Fitzpatrick
Good Intentions quotes by Tori Kelly
#210. The first time I worked out I almost threw up. I did not feel good at all. My friend said, 'You have to get past the first month, you're going to feel so much better.' And she was right: After about 30 or 40 days, I saw changes. #Quote by Tori Kelly
Good Intentions quotes by Kate Mulgrew
#211. The work did not let me down, and neither did the part. When Mulgrew suffered, Janeway picked her up. And when Janeway felt like giving up, Mulgrew slapped her into shape. I was put to good use in every way, and this saved me. #Quote by Kate Mulgrew
Good Intentions quotes by Janet Evanovich
#212. Wouldn't want to tarnish my image by looking like a good guy. #Quote by Janet Evanovich

Good Intentions quotes by Knute Rockne
#214. Make the present good, and the past will take care of itself. #Quote by Knute Rockne
Good Intentions quotes by Barbara Holland
#215. A good-looking piece of scenery anywhere delights the eye and elevates the spirits. Some of us, crude creatures that we are, are merely excited; finer souls draw ethical and spiritual nutrients from the sight. #Quote by Barbara Holland
Good Intentions quotes by Joseph Conrad
#216. I do not know whether I have been a good seaman, but I know I have been a very faithful one. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Good Intentions quotes by Jeffrey Zeldman

Good Intentions quotes by Lysa TerKeurst
#218. Getting healthy isn't just about losing weight. It's not limited to adjusting our diet and hoping for good physical results. It's about recalibrating our souls so that we want to change - spiritually, physically, and mentally. And the battle really is in all three areas. #Quote by Lysa TerKeurst
Good Intentions quotes by Aung San Suu Kyi
#219. The good ruler sublimates his needs as an individual to the service of the nation. #Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi
Good Intentions quotes by Dave Cooper
#220. With the first issue of 'Weasel,' I was even aware myself that I'd improved. I still have affection for my earlier stuff, but I don't think it's anywhere near as good as 'Weasel.' #Quote by Dave Cooper
Good Intentions quotes by Debasish Mridha
#221. Good thoughts without actions are like a ship stuck in a port. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Good Intentions quotes by Thomas Metzinger
#222. I believe we should really take our own phenomenology more seriously. What a good theory of conscious must explain is the variance in this subjective sense of realness: There clearly is a phenomenology of "hyperrealness", for example during religious experiences or under the influence of certain psychoactive substances. #Quote by Thomas Metzinger
Good Intentions quotes by Isaac Babel
#223. When a phrase is born, it is both good and bad at the same time. The secret of its success rests in a crux that is barely discernible. One's fingertips must grasp the key, gently warming it. And then the key must be turned once, not twice. #Quote by Isaac Babel
Good Intentions quotes by Gil Hodges
#224. Many children work hard to please their parents, but what I truly longed for was good times that were about us, not about me. That is the real hole the Dodgers filled in my life. #Quote by Gil Hodges
Good Intentions quotes by Jared Singer
#225. The boy who wears his comic books like armor often sits
alone. He is more comfortable with Iron Man and his
own thoughts than he will ever be with a woman.
Because of his nervous ticks, no matter how long they
are together, she will never feel commonplace to him.
She will always know she is special.
The boy who wears his comic books like armor
tries to tell her that he loves her every day.
She does not understand.
When he says, You remind me of Psylocke,
he is not saying he actually thinks
she is a scantily clad assassin.
He is just saying, Damn girl, you must be psychic.
How else could you always know the right thing
to make me smile? You have to be a ninja.
How else could you have stolen my heart so easily?
He is saying, Dammmmmmmmnnnnnn girl,
you absolutely have to be Psylocke!
She is the only character I have ever read about
who is as graceful and daring as you are.
She does not understand.
The boy who wears his comic books like armor
is not a good lover. The way he barely touches
her makes her feel unattractive.
Like he is only doing this because she wants him to.
This could not be further from the truth.
He is simply treating her like the only thing
that has ever been this important to him before:
comic books.
He removes her clothes like he would
the slipcover from a brand new issue,
as careful not to wrinkle her clot #Quote by Jared Singer
Good Intentions quotes by L.L. Barkat
#226. You could use a moth like that as a symbol in a novel, but it was trite, wasn't it? The old moth-to-the-flame image had been used and used again. It was the stuff of amateur poetry. And she, having so little experience crafting a story, would be the most in danger of falling into trite approaches. If she wrote a novel, it probably would be about her father. And the male Luna moth would haunt its pages. Everyone would recognize the work as that of a first novelist. "She wrote about herself through the lens of her father."
The really good novelists, Laura thought, put their fathers, and maybe their mothers too, deeper into the stories. Which, she suddenly thought, might redeem Melville just the littlest bit. #Quote by L.L. Barkat
Good Intentions quotes by Sylvia Townsend Warner
#227. The body, after all, older and wiser than soul, being first created, and, like a good horse, if given its way would go home by the best path and at the right pace. #Quote by Sylvia Townsend Warner
Good Intentions quotes by Peter Warlock
#228. All good music, whatever its date, is ageless - as alive and significant today as it was when it was written. #Quote by Peter Warlock
Good Intentions quotes by Neil Gaiman
#229. Childhood memories are sometimes covered and obscured beneath the things that come later, like childhood toys forgotten at the bottom of a crammed adult closet, but they are never lost for good. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Good Intentions quotes by Kazuo Ishiguro
#230. But tell me, Taro, don't you worry at times we might be a little too hasty in following the Americans? I would be the first to agree many of the old ways must now be erased for ever, but don't you think sometimes some good things are being thrown out with the bad? Indeed, sometimes Japan has come to look like a small child learning from a strange adult. #Quote by Kazuo Ishiguro

Good Intentions quotes by Stephen McCauley
#232. Julie had always believed that even if it's the big, unexpected events (good and bad) that make life memorable and occasionally exciting, it's the small, predictable routines that hold life together and make it worth living. #Quote by Stephen McCauley
Good Intentions quotes by William Wegman
#233. As soon as I got funny, I killed any majestic intentions in my work. #Quote by William Wegman
Good Intentions quotes by Chloe Neill
#234. I'm really about as good at relaitionships as I am at being a vampire. I'm kind of a smart but surprisingly inept kind of girl. #Quote by Chloe Neill
Good Intentions quotes by Sam Altman
#235. Being a public company is really terrible for most companies. I'd say Facebook and Google have done a pretty good job of standing up to the incredible quarterly pressure to hit numbers, but most companies - and I've observed a lot now - don't do a very good job of that. #Quote by Sam Altman
Good Intentions quotes by Warren Buffett
#236. There are a few investment managers, of course, who are very good - though in the short run, it's difficult to determine whether a great record is due to luck or talent. Most advisors, however, are far better at generating high fees than they are at generating high returns. In truth, their core competence is salesmanship. Rather than listen to their siren songs, investors - large and small - should instead read Jack Bogle's The Little Book of Common Sense Investing. #Quote by Warren Buffett
Good Intentions quotes by Kim Gordon
#237. Rap music is really good when you're traumatized. #Quote by Kim Gordon
Good Intentions quotes by Daphne Delacroix
#238. Nothing and no one is perfect. It just takes a good eye to find those hidden imperfections. #Quote by Daphne Delacroix
Good Intentions quotes by Chogyam Trungpa
#239. In order to develop love - universal love, cosmic love, whatever you would like to call it one must accept the whole situation of life as it is, both the light and the dark, the good and the bad. One must open oneself to life, communicate with it. #Quote by Chogyam Trungpa
Good Intentions quotes by Betty Smith

Good Intentions quotes by Agatha Christie
#243. you've no idea of the agony of having your characters taken and made to say things that they never would have said, and do things that they never would have done. And if you protest, all they say is that it's 'good theatre. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Good Intentions quotes by Winifred Holtby
#244. Teachers have power. We may cripple them by petty economics; by Government regulations, by the foolish criticism of an uninformed press; but their power exists for good or evil ... #Quote by Winifred Holtby
Good Intentions quotes by Adam Kay
#245. For me, the true miracle of childbirth is that smart, rational people with jobs and the ability to vote look at these half-melted fleshy blobs, their heads misshapen from being squeezed through a pelvis, covered in five types of horrendous gunk, looking like they've spent a good two hours rolling around on top of a deep-pan pizza, and honestly believe they look beautiful. #Quote by Adam Kay
Good Intentions quotes by Paul Anka
#246. The technology is good and it's bad. You know what you're dealing with out there musically, but my head stops at this electronic stuff. I don't quite know what I'm dealing with out there yet. #Quote by Paul Anka
Good Intentions quotes by Penelope Ward
#247. I see through you. The harder you try to be good, the more you're starving to be bad. #Quote by Penelope Ward
