Hard Truth quotes by J.T. Geissinger
#1. One of the first shrinks I went to after Cass died told me that the brain has a hardwired need to find correlations, to make sense of nonsensical data by making connections between unrelated things. Humans have evolved a universal tendency to seek patterns in random information, hence the existence of fortune-tellers and dream interpreters and people who see the face of Jesus in a piece of toast. But the cold, hard truth is that there are no connections between anything. Life - all of existence - is totally random. Your lucky lottery numbers aren't really lucky, because there's no such thing as luck. The black cat that crosses your path isn't a bad omen, it's just a cat out for a walk. An eclipse doesn't mean that the gods are angry, just as a bus narrowly missing you as you cross the street doesn't mean there's a guardian angel looking out for you. There are no gods. There are no angels. Superstitions aren't real, and no amount of wishing, praying, or rationalizing can change the fact that life is just one long sequence of random events that ultimately have no meaning. I really hated that shrink. #Quote by J.T. Geissinger
Hard Truth quotes by Jeanne Marie Bouvier De La Motte Guyon
#2. If knowing answers to life's questions is absolutely necessary to you, then forget the journey. You will never make it. For this is a journey of unknowables
of unanswered questions, enigmas, incomprehensibles, and most of all, things unfair. #Quote by Jeanne Marie Bouvier De La Motte Guyon
Hard Truth quotes by Hemantsmarty
#3. Idon't believe anything really lasts. If things lasted forever, then coffee wouldn't cool. And cigarettes wouldn't end. And feelings would stay the same. And you would still love me. But the cold hard truth is, nothing lasts forever. Life simply goes on. And I'm trying to figure out where to go from here. #Quote by Hemantsmarty
Hard Truth quotes by Edward Abbey
#4. The world is older and bigger than we are. This is a hard truth for some folks to swallow. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Hard Truth quotes by Sarah Bessey

Hard Truth quotes by Ahmed Akram Mirza

#7. This is a hard truth for some to accept: that a lack of resources may not be their true constraint, just a lack of resourcefulness. #Quote by David Burkus
Hard Truth quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#8. Truth was not meant to be told but found #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Hard Truth quotes by Llewellyn Rockwell
#9. It's a hard truth for Americans to face, that neither team in Washington is going to guard what we love the most. That is something we are going to have to face. Liberty is for the citizens to guard themselves. #Quote by Llewellyn Rockwell

Hard Truth quotes by Hiba Fatima Ahmad
#16. We live in a world where words are as meaningless as a snowflake in a blizzard #Quote by Hiba Fatima Ahmad
Hard Truth quotes by Robert A. Nisbet
#17. If all human beings in a population either are declared equal in their native strengths and rights, or else are persuaded to believe this, then the eventual realization of the hard truth of the matter that no amount of redistribution of wealth and status can ever obliterate inequality in one form or another must often take the form of covetousness mixed with resentment: that is, envy. ....The only remedy for the poisons created by egalitarianism in a society is emphatically not ever-greater dosages of political redistribution of wealth and status, for such dosages worsen the disease, producing fevers of avarice and envy. No, the sole remedy for this pathology is the introduction and diffusion of individual liberty as a sovereign value. Respect for individual liberty makes it possible for human beings to live in and be aware of differentiation a condition that, in biology, is recognized for what it is, the basis of progressive evolution, but which, in its social manifestation, receives no such recognition because of both the inequality intrinsic to all social differentiation and the ideology of equality that has spread so widely and so devastatingly in the twentieth century. #Quote by Robert A. Nisbet
Hard Truth quotes by Kingsley Opuwari Manuel
#18. The purpose of salt is to change the nature of what it invades without calling attention to itself. Attracting attention to yourself in the Kingdom of God is like seducing the bride because you are the best man of the groom. #Quote by Kingsley Opuwari Manuel
Hard Truth quotes by Tiffany Reisz
#19. But there was nothing but the cold, hard truth that loving someone and being loved back was only the beginning, not the end, of all the pain. #Quote by Tiffany Reisz
Hard Truth quotes by Richard Rohr
#20. The most effective organizations, I am told, have both a "good boss" and a "bad boss," who work closely together. One holds us strongly, while the other speaks hard truth to us and sets clear goals and limits for us. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Hard Truth quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#21. She had still been learning how to live with the hard truth that the most interesting parts of her thoughts usually got left behind when she tried to put them into words. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Hard Truth quotes by Dante Alighieri
#22. In this place piety lives where pity is dead. #Quote by Dante Alighieri
Hard Truth quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#23. Without suffering, we never wishes to be free. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Hard Truth quotes by Renée Chae
#24. When people accept their belief(s) as the die-hard truth, hearing a different view will always appear false (at first) because it opposes the ones they've already understood and accepted as their truth. #Quote by Renée Chae
Hard Truth quotes by Tillie Cole
#25. That stunning fuckin' smile. I ain't ever seen you smile in the whole time you've been at the compound."

I lost my smile, then replied, "Because I do not have reason to smile very often."

Ky's fingers began tracing the back of my hand. "Then you make a reason, Li. Don't make excuses for living a shit life. It ain't rocket science. You don't like something, find something you do. Don't like being around someone, stay the fuck away. Wanna change your life, then get off your ass, bitch and fuckin' change it. #Quote by Tillie Cole
Hard Truth quotes by Dan Rust
#26. It may not seem fair or right. Shouldn't doing an exceptional job be enough? Unfortunately it's not. The hard truth is that you must learn to do a great job AND navigate the complex human dynamics. Like dancing a beautiful ballet in a minefield. If you ignore the land mines, or do nothing but complain about them, you're likely to lose a few toes. #Quote by Dan Rust
Hard Truth quotes by Sagan, Carl; Druyan, Ann
#27. While there are deeper regularities in the Universe than the simple circumstances we generally describe as orderly, all that order, simple and complex, seems to derive from laws of Nature established at the Big Bang (or earlier), rather than as a consequence of belated intervention by an imperfect deity. "God is to be found in the details" is the famous dictum of the German scholar Aby Warburg. But, amid much elegance and precision, the details of life and the Universe also exhibit haphazard, jury-rigged arrangements and much poor planning. What shall we make of this: an edifice abandoned early in construction by the architect? The evidence, so far at least and laws of Nature aside, does not require a Designer. Maybe there is one hiding, maddeningly unwilling to be revealed. Sometimes it seems a very slender hope. The significance of our lives and our fragile planet is then determined only by our own wisdom and courage. We are the custodians of life's meaning. We long for a Parent to care for us, to forgive us our errors, to save us from our childish mistakes. But knowledge is preferable to ignorance. Better by far to embrace the hard truth than a reassuring fable. If we crave some cosmic purpose, then let us find ourselves a worthy goal.
--Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space #Quote by Sagan, Carl; Druyan, Ann
Hard Truth quotes by Mhairi McFarlane
#28. This was a category error that too many people made - thinking untruths that didn't add up were better than a hard truth. #Quote by Mhairi McFarlane
Hard Truth quotes by Joan Bauer
#29. Staring down hard truth takes guts. #Quote by Joan Bauer
Hard Truth quotes by Sinclair Lewis
#30. What this country needs is Discipline! Peace is a great dream, but maybe sometimes it's only a pipe dream! I'm not so sure - now this will shock you, but I want you to listen to one woman who will tell you the unadulterated hard truth instead of a lot of sentimental taffy, and I'm not sure but that we need to be in a real war again, in order to learn Discipline! We don't want all this highbrow intellectuality, all this book-learning. That's good enough in its way, but isn't it, after all, just a nice toy for grownups? No, what we all of us must have, if this great land is going to go on maintaining its high position among the Congress of Nations, is Discipline - Will Power - Character! #Quote by Sinclair Lewis
Hard Truth quotes by Carl Sagan
#31. Better the hard truth, I say, than the comforting fantasy. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Hard Truth quotes by K. Bromberg
#32. There is something about saying a hard truth aloud that makes it both more real and more cathartic. #Quote by K. Bromberg
Hard Truth quotes by Thomas Merton
#33. If you found God with great ease, perhaps it's not God that you have found. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Hard Truth quotes by Mary Gaitskill
#34. The hard truth is that there are people who believe they're writers and work hard at it and are sincere about it, but they don't make it. You have to be prepared for that possibility. #Quote by Mary Gaitskill
Hard Truth quotes by Anne Bishop
#35. ...you look the truth in the face - not the truth that has fangs and fur but the hard truth about yourself, that you're just as dangerous as the beings the rest of the people fear but you can't afford to be as honest about it. You can't tell those people that you'll make deals with what they fear in order to keep them sage from the monsters who look just like them. #Quote by Anne Bishop
Hard Truth quotes by Russell Kirk
#36. True law necessarily is rooted in ethical assumptions or norms; and those ethical principles are derived, in the beginning at least, from religious convictions. When the religious understanding, from which a concept of law arose in a culture, has been discarded or denied, the laws may endure for some time, through what sociologists call "cultural lag"; but in the long run, the laws also will be discarded or denied.

With this hard truth in mind, I venture to suggest that the corpus of English and American laws--for the two arise for the most part from a common root of belief and experience--cannot endure forever unless it is animated by the spirit that moved it in the beginning: that is, by religion, and specifically by the Christian people. Certain moral postulates of Christian teaching have been taken for granted, in the past, as the ground of justice. When courts of law ignore those postulates, we grope in judicial darkness. . . .

We suffer from a strong movement to exclude such religious beliefs from the operation of courts of law, and to discriminate against those unenlightened who cling fondly to the superstitions of the childhood of the race.

Many moral beliefs, however, though sustained by religious convictions, may not be readily susceptible of "scientific" demonstration. After all, our abhorrence of murder, rape, and other crimes may be traced back to the Decalogue and other religious injunctions. If it can be shown that our oppositio #Quote by Russell Kirk
Hard Truth quotes by Brent Weeks
#37. You've got choices to make, but here's another hard truth: you can't be whatever you want to be. The list of things you'll never be is a long one
even if you do live forever. #Quote by Brent Weeks
Hard Truth quotes by Sue Grafton
#38. The cold hard truth will fall on stony ground, whereas your all-around trashy rumor will flourish like a weed. #Quote by Sue Grafton
Hard Truth quotes by Nicole Williams
#39. I also knew you wouldn't stop your staring until you learned the cold, hard truth. So, consider yourself warned. I might not be the kind of guy that reads textbooks at the beach," he said, glancing back at my open book, "but I'm smart enough to know girls like you should stay away from guys like me. So stay away. #Quote by Nicole Williams
Hard Truth quotes by Barack Obama
#40. The hard truth is carbon pollution has built up in our atmosphere for decades now. And even if we Americans do our part, the planet will slowly keep warming for some time to come. #Quote by Barack Obama
Hard Truth quotes by George R R Martin
#41. Tyrion Lannister had claimed that most men would rather deny a hard truth than face it, but Jon was done with denials. He was who he was; Jon Snow, bastard and oathbreaker, motherless, friendless, and damned. For the rest of his life-however long that might be-he would be condemned to be an outsider, the silent man standing in the shadows who dares not speak his true name. #Quote by George R R Martin
Hard Truth quotes by Lou Doillon
#42. I listen to a variety of music. The only common point is strong lyrics; I'm more obsessed with lyrics than music. I need to hear a form of truth, and if it's a hard truth, even better. #Quote by Lou Doillon
Hard Truth quotes by Michel Faber
#43. A person who is worth nothing must introduce you to a person worth next-to-nothing, and that person to another, and so on and so forth until finally you can step across the threshold, almost one of the family. #Quote by Michel Faber
Hard Truth quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#44. There is no human relationship that is not based on self-interest #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Hard Truth quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana

Hard Truth quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#46. When the time has come to confront the hard truth, we may have to rewire our brains to ensure the healing from subversive mental barbs of aching incidents. ("Lost dreams") #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Hard Truth quotes by Stella Payton
#47. Truth needs wisdom's guidance. Wisdom prevents a hard truth from getting the best of you when an imperfect character brings out the worst in you. #Quote by Stella Payton
Hard Truth quotes by Caterina Scorsone
#48. It wasn't the 'miracle of engineering' that is the human body that was filling me with a mad desire to live my days and nights in a pair of scrubs. The hard truth was I did not remotely want to be a surgeon. I actually just wanted to be on 'Grey's Anatomy.' #Quote by Caterina Scorsone
Hard Truth quotes by Carl Sagan
#49. When Kepler found his long-cherished belief did not agree with the most precise observation, he accepted the uncomfortable fact. He preferred the hard truth to his dearest illusions, that is the heart of science. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Hard Truth quotes by Roland Martin
#50. My audience expects cold, hard truth. They don't expect me to dance around it. They expect me to say it the way they think it. That's part of my brand. If I don't do that, then my audience goes, 'What's up? Is he sick or something? What's wrong with him?' The entity has a brand. #Quote by Roland Martin
Hard Truth quotes by Eve Langlais
#51. Why are you doing this? I don't want you. Is that the problem? Is your ego so big you can't handle a woman rejecting you?"
"Oh, you want me alright, my sexy little witch. Want me so bad it scares you. Well, I've got news for you. It scares the fuck out of me, too. But I don't care. When the options are settling down with you for life and popping out little demonlings or watching you walk away, I know what I choose."
For a moment, she couldn't answer, could only gape at him as his words penetrated. Surely, she misunderstood. "What did you say?"
"I want you as my mate."
No misunderstanding that time.
She tamped down her elation by slapping it with the cold, hard truth. "You'll hurt me."
"Trust me."
He asked too much.
"I'm not the right woman."
"You're all I want."
She shook her head lest his words weave a spell around her and make her believe. Yet despite all the warnings in her head, hope blossomed and love warmed her. How nice it would be to allow herself to love him. To trust him.
Sadness entered his expression at her rejection. "I know it's hard for you, little witch, but I promise you've nothing to fear. Unless the thought of too many orgasms in a row freaks you out."
And that quickly, he changed from pensive male to the one she'd grown to love with the mischievous smile. He lunged. She squealed like a little girl and ran. Not far though.
With his ridiculously long stride, he quickly caught her a #Quote by Eve Langlais

#52. I deliver my Truth hot and hard. #Quote by Stephen Colbert
Hard Truth quotes by Meg Jay
#53. The Great Recession and its continuing aftermath have left many twenty-somethings feeling naïve, even devastated.Twenty-somethings are more educated than ever before, but a smaller percentage find work after college. Many entry-level jobs have gone overseas, making it more difficult for twenty-somethings to gain a foothold at home. With a contracting economy and a growing population, unemployment is at its highest in decades. An unpaid internship is the new starter job. About a quarter of twenty-somethings are out of work and another quarter work only part-time. Twenty-somethings who do have paying jobs earn less than their 1970s counterparts when adjusted for inflation. #Quote by Meg Jay
Hard Truth quotes by James A. Michener
#54. We are never prepared for what we expect. #Quote by James A. Michener
Hard Truth quotes by David Levithan
#55. He's on the verge of it
we can tell. He is on the verge of finding that very hard truth
that it will never be complete, or feel complete. This is usually something you only have to learn once
that just like there is no such thing as forever, there is no such thing as total. When you're in the thrall of your first love, this discovery feels like the breaking of all momentum, the undermining of all promise. For the past year, Neil has assumed that love was like a liquid pouring into a vessel, and that the longer you loved, the more full the vessel became, until it was entirely full. The truth is that over time, the vessel expands as well. You grow. Your life wides. And you can't expect your partner's love alone to fill you. There will always be space for other things. And that space isn't empty as much as it's filled by another element. Even though the liquid is easier to see, you have to learn to appreciate the air. #Quote by David Levithan
Hard Truth quotes by Susan Sontag
#56. The hard truth is that what may be acceptable in elite culture may not be acceptable in mass culture, that tastes which pose only innocent ethical issues as the property of a minority become corrupting when they become more established. Taste is context, and the context has changed. #Quote by Susan Sontag
Hard Truth quotes by Carl Sagan
#57. [Kepler] preferred the hard truth to his dearest illusions, and that is the heart of science. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Hard Truth quotes by Stephen Chbosky
#58. There is nothing like taking deep breaths after laughing that hard. #Quote by Stephen Chbosky
Hard Truth quotes by Claude Thomas Bissell
#59. Yearning is not only a good way to go crazy but also a pretty good place to hide out from hard truth. #Quote by Claude Thomas Bissell
Hard Truth quotes by Simone Weil
#60. Plato also knew clearly, and indicated by allusions in his works, the dogmas of the Trinity, mediation, the incarnation, the Passion and the notions of grace and salvation through love. He knew the essential truth. Namely, that God is good. He is only all-powerful in addition. #Quote by Simone Weil
Hard Truth quotes by Marianna Paige
#61. It makes me sick, the way sadness is addicting. The way I can't stop. Sadness is familiar. It's comfortable and it's easy in a sense that it comes naturally to me. But everything else about it is hard. The way my body aches with self-hatred. The way my mind spins and spins with hopeless thoughts. The way it poisons everything I do, every relationship I have. Yet it's addicting, because I know sadness, and I know it very well. And there's a sort of comfort in that, like being home after a trip or sleeping in your own bed after being away. There's just a sense that this is where I belong. This is how it's supposed to be. #Quote by Marianna Paige
Hard Truth quotes by Philip Pullman
#62. I told him I was going to betray you, and betray Lyra, and he believed me because I was corrupt and full of wickedness; he looked so deep I felt sure he'd see the truth. But I lied too well. I was lying with every nerve and fiber and everything I'd ever done ... I wanted him to find no good in me, and he didn't. There is none. #Quote by Philip Pullman
Hard Truth quotes by Jacqueline Novogratz
#63. My first grade nun had instructed me that from those to whom much is given, much is expected. I was learning that this lesson had to be combined with Shakespeare's wisdom that one must 'to thine own self be true.' Add to this humility, empathy, a sense of curiosity, courage, and plain old hard work, and I was finally seeing the real path to leadership. Of course, humor is always a plus. (158) #Quote by Jacqueline Novogratz
Hard Truth quotes by Ann Richards
#64. Well it's really hard to satisfy the right wing. I can tell you that. #Quote by Ann Richards
Hard Truth quotes by C.J. Redwine
#65. I'm honor-bound not to struggle with this since you just retrieved it all by yourself. Please do me the courtesy of pretending this is hard for you as well. #Quote by C.J. Redwine
Hard Truth quotes by Abbi Glines
#66. Rush please," I begged, fighting the urge to grab his hand and force him to bring me relief from the throbbing underneath his touch "I need..." I didn't know what I needed. I just needed.
Rush lifted his head and ran his nose up my neck then pressed a kiss to my chin.
"I know what you need. I'm just not sure I can handle watching you get it. You've got me all kinds of worked up, girl. I'm trying hard to be a good boy. I can't lose control in the back of damn car."
I shook my head. He couldn't stop. I didn't want him to be good. I wanted him inside me. Now. "Please, don't be good. Please," I begged. Rush let out a rugged breath "Shit, baby. Stop it. I'm going to explode. I'll give you your release but when I finally bury myself inside you for the first time you won't be sprawled in the back of my car. You'll be in my bed."
His hand moved before I could respond and my eyes rolled back in my head. "That's it. Come for me, sweet Blaire. Come on my hand and let me feel it. I want to watch you." His words sent me spiralling over the edge of the cliff I'd been trying so hard to reach.
"Ruuuuuush!" I heard the loud cry that came from me as i went falling into complete bliss. I knew I was crying for him, screaming out his name and maybe even clawing at him but I could no longer control myself. The ecstasy was too much. #Quote by Abbi Glines
Hard Truth quotes by Debasish Mridha
#67. With our blissful thoughts we fill our world with happiness. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Hard Truth quotes by Dennis Gleason
#68. The only thing worse than a liar is a betrayer. Both are killers, for they kill both truth and trust. #Quote by Dennis Gleason
Hard Truth quotes by Will Rogers
#69. I have always noticed that people will never laugh at anything that is not based on truth. #Quote by Will Rogers
Hard Truth quotes by Brian Tracy
#70. Good habits are hard to develop but easy to live with; bad habits are easy to develop but hard to live with. The habits you have and the habits that have you will determine almost everything you achieve or fail to achieve. #Quote by Brian Tracy
Hard Truth quotes by Karina Halle
#71. His heart. I just want his heart. I know he has one.
Something red and big and beautiful buried beneath layers of darkened ash.
A heart that I won't uncover, no matter how hard I try. #Quote by Karina Halle
Hard Truth quotes by Mary Elizabeth Winstead
#72. Anytime I'm given scripts where I'm sort of the fantasy girl, it's hard for me because that's not real and I don't think it's a great thing to put out there consistently. #Quote by Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Hard Truth quotes by Joseph Conrad
#73. I can't imagine a human being so hard up for something to do as to quarrel with me. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Hard Truth quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#74. Embarrassment flooded me, but Rider was grinning as he scooted closer and tugged me over. Before I knew what he was doing, he'd tucked my hips between his thighs and circled his arms around me, holding me tight to his chest.
His really hard chest.
The contact jolted me, like touching a live wire. It took a couple of seconds for me to relax.
He was silent as he rested his chin on the top of my head, and I didn't say anything as I squeezed my eyes shut against the rising tide of emotion. Being this close to him again was something so powerful the connection was tangible, a third entity.
One hand drifted up my back, a slow slide under the weight of my hair. He curled his fingers around the nape of my neck. His chin moved, grazing my forehead, and the intimacy of the act was so different than any of the other times he'd been this close. An odd warmth settled in my muscles. Like stepping out into the sun for the first time after a long winter. There was a moment when I wasn't sure if he breathed, because I didn't feel his chest move under my hands.
In the back of my head, I wondered how...how okay this was. I didn't want to pull away and break the connection, but I thought that maybe I should. This was innocent. It had to be, but it was also different. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Hard Truth quotes by Lino Rulli
#75. I think there's a ton of things about being Catholic that are hard. Going to Church every week is tough. I'd like to go to church, like, every couple of months. Going to confession is hard. Confessing my sins out loud is a very difficult thing. #Quote by Lino Rulli
Hard Truth quotes by Tim Cope
#76. It's hard to find a place where you're out of earshot of some kind of noise. #Quote by Tim Cope
Hard Truth quotes by Kevin Systrom
#77. Traditional businesses can say, 'We're going to sell widgets to people, and it will make X amount of profit.' But new business models are hard. #Quote by Kevin Systrom
Hard Truth quotes by Beryl Dov
#78. The Unvarnished Truth
The asshole you're with,
the lousy situation you're in,
are the prices you've paid
for living a superficial life
with a shitty value system
up till now. #Quote by Beryl Dov
Hard Truth quotes by Michel Houellebecq
#79. Tenderness is a deeper instinct than seduction, which is why it is so hard to give up hope. #Quote by Michel Houellebecq
Hard Truth quotes by Robert Adams
#80. The job of the photographer, in my view, is not to catalogue indisputable fact but to try to be coherent about intuition and hope. This is not to say that he is unconcerned with the truth. #Quote by Robert Adams
Hard Truth quotes by Annie Leibovitz
#81. As a young person, and I know it's hard to believe that I was shy, but you could take your camera, and it would take you to places: it was like having a friend, like having someone to go out with and look at the world. I would do things with a camera I wouldn't do normally if I was just by myself. #Quote by Annie Leibovitz
Hard Truth quotes by Noam Chomsky
#82. Real schools ought to provide people with techniques of self-defense, but that would mean teaching the truth about the world and about the society, and schools couldn't survive very long if they did that. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Hard Truth quotes by Masuji Ibuse
#83. I wonder why people work so hard to become politicians just in order to do something wrong. #Quote by Masuji Ibuse
Hard Truth quotes by Shannon Hale
#84. Miri took genuine comfort in studying Mathematics that day. She could sort numbers into two simple ideas: true and not true. Unlike numbers, words were rarely just one thing. They moved and changed, camouflaging and leaping out unexpectedly. Words were slippery and alive; words wrestled out of her grip and became something new. Words were dangerous. #Quote by Shannon Hale
Hard Truth quotes by Mark Donnelly
#85. Pride, oh pride - a friend from the past, a bodyguard of the present, and an enemy of the future. Books, oh books - a friend from the past, a soul mate of the present, and a protector of the future.
Slowly, softly, and surely through the pages of the past, I have found a new me. There were so many things to learn and so many things remaining to learn. I delight in the truth of why some books I will read, and other I will not. The truth is: I was not choosing.
In pleasing myself with books, I transform myself. And I've found sometimes the most amazing keys to unlocking a different part of me in the strangest of books. I go to libraries and there they are waiting for me. I love them, and they love me. #Quote by Mark Donnelly
Hard Truth quotes by Judith Krantz
#86. It is strange, is it not, how an accident of a millimeter here, a millimeter there, makes one face so important. Think about it Elliot, She has two eyes, a nose, a mouth, just like everyone else. It,s all in tiny degrees of placement, such small area of magic to make such a big difference. For me, Elliot, I must tell you it is a hard thing to understand- why these things, these millimeters, are so crucial to you, you of all men. #Quote by Judith Krantz
Hard Truth quotes by De Robigne Mortimer Bennett
#87. [The Truth Seeker is] Devoted to: science, morals, free thought, free discussions, liberalism, sexual equality, labor reform, progression, free education and whatever tends to elevate and emancipate the human race.
Opposed to: priestcraft, ecclesiasticism, dogmas, creeds, false theology, superstition, bigotry, ignorance, monopolies, aristocracies, privileged classes, tyranny, oppression, and everything that degrades or burdens mankind mentally or physically. #Quote by De Robigne Mortimer Bennett
Hard Truth quotes by Martha Rosler
#88. The question at hand is the danger posed to truth by computer-manipulated photographic imagery. How do we approach this question in a period in which the veracity of even the straight, unmanipulated photograph has been under attack for a couple of decades. #Quote by Martha Rosler
Hard Truth quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#89. The truth is, when you have little to do, you do very little. But when you have much to do, you do much. So it should make sense that by taking on more than you can handle, you accomplish more than you ever dreamed you could. And so it is. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Hard Truth quotes by Norman Lock
#90. While I knew him, he made me see--Poe did; made me understand that, unlike a bodily organ, the soul desires, even wills, its own continuance.It can be said to be the seat of will and desire and, even in its necrotic state, the root of evil. ... A Sunday school lesson or one of Cotton Mather's gaudy rants that helped to kindle the Salem bonfires is nearer to the truth of it than a fable by Poe, Hawthorne, or Melville. Evil's a malignancy beyond the skill and scalpel of {doctors} to heal or extirpate. #Quote by Norman Lock
Hard Truth quotes by Jane Goodall
#91. Words can be said in bitterness and anger, and often there seems to be an element of truth in the nastiness. And words don't go away, they just echo around. #Quote by Jane Goodall
Hard Truth quotes by Aidèe Jaimes
#92. I'm flipped onto my back and my arms are pinned above my head. "Some of us are made to be in control, Miss Mills."
I spread my legs and press my core against him. He's hard, and that alone lets me know he not as controlled as he'd like to be. I press a little harder, and he moans. "Perhaps, Mr. King, control is all an illusion." - Winnifred Mills #Quote by Aidèe Jaimes
Hard Truth quotes by Francois Fenelon
#93. Avoid all refined speculations; confine yourself to simple reflections, and recur to them frequently. Those who pass too rapidly from one truth to another feed their curiosity and restlessness; they even distract their intellect with too great a multiplicity of views. Give every truth time to send down deep root into the heart. #Quote by Francois Fenelon
Hard Truth quotes by Thomas Paine
#94. Paper money is like dram-drinking, it relieves for a moment by deceitful sensation, but gradually diminishes the natural heat, and leaves the body worse than it found it. Were not this the case, and could money be made of paper at pleasure, every sovereign in Europe would be as rich as he pleased. But the truth is, that it is a bubble and the attempt vanity. Nature has provided the proper materials for money: gold and silver, and any attempt of ours to rival her is ridiculous ... #Quote by Thomas Paine
Hard Truth quotes by Tana French
#95. For a moment I was dizzied by the impulse to leave her there: shove the techs' hands away, shout at hovering morgue men to get the hell out. We had taken enough toll on her. All she had left was her death and I wanted to leave her that, that at least. I wanted to wrap her up in soft blankets, stroke back her clotted hair, pull up a duvet of falling leaves and little animals' rustles. Leave her to sleep, sliding away forever down her secret underground river, while breathing seasons spun dandelion seeds and moon phases and snowflakes above her head. She had tried so hard to live. #Quote by Tana French
Hard Truth quotes by Lydia Lunch
#96. I must find Ecstasy in this Insanity
Freedom from their Slavery
The Truth in their Lies
Life in their Death
Beauty in their Homicidal Genocide
Peace in the War Whore's evil orgy of Death and Negation
Love amongst the Ruins
Pleasure in my own Pain. #Quote by Lydia Lunch
Hard Truth quotes by Kim Harrison
#97. Hello-o-o-o-o, Nick," I said, hitting thek hard. "You're the world's biggest jerk for what you did to Jax. You ever show your scrawny face in Cincinnati again, and I'm going to shove a broomstick up your ass and set it on fire. You got that? #Quote by Kim Harrison
Hard Truth quotes by Clare Short
#98. I think the good old British democracy should keep scrutinising and pressing to get the truth out. #Quote by Clare Short
Hard Truth quotes by Rick Riordan
#99. Tyson charged at the Cyclops leader, Ma Gasket, her chain-mail dress
spattered with mud and decorated with broken spears.
She gawked at Tyson and started to say, "Who - ?"
Tyson hit her in the head so hard, she spun in a circle and landed on
her rump.
"Bad Cyclops Lady!" he bell owed. "General Tyson says GO AWAY!"
He hit her again, and Ma Gasket broke into dust. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Hard Truth quotes by Curtis Grimes
#100. It's been cool to see on the Voice all these up-and-coming artists from all over the country just develop and follow their careers as well, because we were all at a beginning point together. Now, after seeing the business side and behind-the-scenes stuff, it's hard for me to watch reality TV and play along like they want you to. #Quote by Curtis Grimes
Hard Truth quotes by Katty Kay
#101. Girls leave school crammed full of interesting historical facts and elegant Spanish subjunctives, so proud of their ability to study hard and get the best grades. But somewhere between the classroom and the cubicle, the rules change and they don't understand it. They slam into a world of work that doesn't reward them for perfect spelling and exquisite manners. #Quote by Katty Kay
Hard Truth quotes by Nora Roberts
#102. It's hard loving someone more than they love you, and it's something I have to deal with. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Hard Truth quotes by Garrison Keillor
#103. The top 1% holds nearly half of the financial wealth, the greatest concentration of wealth of any industrialized nation, more concentrated than at any time since the Depression. In 1980, on average, CEOs earned 42 times the salary of the average worker, and these days they earn about 476 times that salary. Since 1980, the rich have been getting richer fast and furiously and hard-working people in the middle are sliding down the greasy slope who never imagined this could happen to them. The concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a few is the death knell of democracy. No republic in the history of humankind has survived this. #Quote by Garrison Keillor
Hard Truth quotes by Chip Ingram
#104. Our violent, narcissistic, noncommittal, "me first" culture is simply the logical and predictable expression of "truth" as a relative, subjective, unverifiable concept. #Quote by Chip Ingram
