Identity quotes by Marc Vachon
#3. Today humanitarianism is in search of an identity, especially after the war in Iraq. In a perfect world, humanitarianism would not exist. People wouldn't die of thirst or starvation. So humanitarian activity is in itself an admission of failure. #Quote by Marc Vachon
Identity quotes by Erwin Panofsky
#4. Reform or no reform, he never ceased to promote the interests of St. Denis and the Royal House of France with the same naive, and in his case not entirely unjustified, conviction of their identity with those of the nation and with the Will of God as a modern oil or steel magnate may promote legislation favorable to his company and to his bank as something beneficial to the welfare of this country and to the progress of mankind. #Quote by Erwin Panofsky
Identity quotes by Said Sayrafiezadeh

Identity quotes by Gerhard Richter

Identity quotes by Paullina Simons
#7. Now she had words to dull her senses. English words, a new name, and covering it all like a warm blanket, a new life in amazing, immoderate, pulsating America. A sparkling new identity in a gilded immense new country. God had made it as easy as possible to forget him. To you, I give this, God said. I give you freedom and sun, and warmth, and comfort. I give you summers in Sheep Meadow and Coney Island, and I give you Vikki, your friend for life, and I give you Anthony, your son for life, and I give you Edward, in case you want love again. I give you youth and I give you beauty, in case you want someone other than Edward to love you. I give you New York. I give you seasons, and Christmas! And baseball and dancing and paved roads and refrigerators, and a car, and land in Arizona. I give it all to you. All I ask, is that you forget him and take it. #Quote by Paullina Simons
Identity quotes by Brennan Manning
#8. A life of praying means death to every identity that does not come from God. #Quote by Brennan Manning
Identity quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#9. It is necessary to understand who you are #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Identity quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#10. Do not free a camel of the burden of his hump; you may be freeing him from being a camel. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Identity quotes by Emily P. Freeman
#11. As a good girl, my worship was small and my service was toxic because I didn't understand the completeness of my rescue. I knew I was going to heaven when I died, but I thought my life on earth was all up to me. Jesus saved me, and now he was standing back with his arms crossed, waiting to see how I would live my life. Service seemed a burden. Worship felt contrived. I had received Christ by faith for my salvation, but I was working hard for the rest. Until he said *enough*. When I began to understand that my true identity was not in how I looked, how I felt, or the lies I believed, my masks began to lose their staying power. It wasn't because I was trying hard to remove them. It was because I was seeing Jesus for who he really is, and in turn I was letting him see me. #Quote by Emily P. Freeman
Identity quotes by Kate Bornstein
#12. It is important to note that the relevant factor to sexual harassment in this story is not gender identity but gender perception. Some friends and acquaintances who have experienced harassment do not, in fact, identify as women; they were perceived as women. As I sought support, the key issue was not their gender identity, but the gender signifiers that led them to be perceived as women. If we don't admit that sexual harassment is a gendered experience, we can never shed light on the sexism implicit in many cases of harassment. However, in addressing these sorts of gendered experiences, we may find that gender identity is not the most useful category. #Quote by Kate Bornstein
Identity quotes by Julian Seifter
#13. You are not your illness. You have an individual story to tell. You have a name, a history, a personality. Staying yourself is part of the battle. #Quote by Julian Seifter
Identity quotes by David A. Bednar
#14. Missionary work is a manifestation of our spiritual identity and heritage. We were foreordained in the premortal existence and born into mortality to fulfill the covenant and promise God made to Abraham. We are here upon the earth at this time to magnify the priesthood and to preach the gospel. That is who we are, and that is why we are here - today and always. #Quote by David A. Bednar
Identity quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#15. If you feel compelled to respond every time you're criticized it reveals just how much you've built your identity on being right. #Quote by Tullian Tchividjian
Identity quotes by Patti Smith
#16. We were evolving with different needs. I needed to explore beyond myself and Robert needed to search within himself. He explored the vocabulary of his work, and as his components shifted and morphed, he was in effect creating a diary of his internal evolution, heralding the emergence of a suppressed sexual identity. #Quote by Patti Smith
Identity quotes by Fennel Hudson
#17. There's no point pretending to be someone or something we're not. #Quote by Fennel Hudson
Identity quotes by Giancarlo Esposito
#18. I feel that sometimes, holding yourself as black, saying that is your sole identity, can sometimes stand in your way of being a member of the humanity of man, being a member of the family of the divine. #Quote by Giancarlo Esposito
Identity quotes by Veronica Roth
#19. Want something else more than success. Success is a lovely thing, but your desire to say something, your worth, and your identity shouldn't rely on it, because it's not guaranteed and it's not permanent and it's not sufficient. So work hard, fall in love with the writing - the characters, the story, the words, the themes - and make sure that you are who you are regardless of your life circumstances. That way, when the good things come, they don't warp you, and when the bad things hit you, you don't fall apart. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Identity quotes by Caroline Smailes
#20. Mum was thinking 'bout going back to study creative twatting writing. She had a novel in her, whatever the fuck that meant. She was going to do all the stuff that having me when she was twenty had stopped her from doing. She said I'd made her tits little and taken away her identity. #Quote by Caroline Smailes
Identity quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#21. No death, no doom, no anguish can arouse the surpassing despair which flows from a loss of identity.
- Through the Gates of the Silver Key #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
Identity quotes by Ann Romney
#22. I think we identify ourselves by labels or things that we are able to do: I am this. I am a good cook. I am a good mother. I am a good this. I am a good doctor. I am a good lawyer. When you can't do those things anymore, you wonder where your identity is. #Quote by Ann Romney
Identity quotes by Philip Roth
#23. All I can tell you with certainty is that I, for one, have no self, and that I am unwilling or unable to perpetrate upon myself the joke of a self ... What I have instead is a variety of impersonations I can do, and not only of myself - a troupe of players that I have internalised, a permanent company of actors that I can call upon when a self is required ... I am a theater and nothing more than a theater. #Quote by Philip Roth
Identity quotes by Jack Dunphy
#24. Success is so bad for everybody, period. Especially a certain kind of success, when people practically give up their identity. They forget who they are, how they are. #Quote by Jack Dunphy
Identity quotes by Jacqui Stedmon
#25. Narratives are the primary way in which we make sense of our lives, as opposed to, for example schema,cognition, beliefs, constructs. Definition of narrative include the important element of giving meaning to events and experiences over time by connecting them as a developing, continuing story. #Quote by Jacqui Stedmon
Identity quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#26. Hate gives identity. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Identity quotes by Suzette Boon
#27. Dissociative parts of the personality are not actually separate identities or personalities in one body, but rather parts of a single individual that are not yet functioning together in a smooth, coordinated, flexible way. P14 #Quote by Suzette Boon
Identity quotes by Franz Kafka
#28. Did he really want this warm room of his, so comfortably fitted with old family furniture, to be transformed into a cave, in which, no doubt, he would be free to crawl about unimpeded in all directions, but only at the price of rapidly and completely forgetting his human past at the same time? #Quote by Franz Kafka
Identity quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#29. Secondly," he went on, "a Chief Magistrate is about as far beneath a marquess's daughter as a tree is beneath the moon."
A mutinous look crossed his aunt's face. "Sir Richard started out as a saddler's apprentice. He got himself a knighthood partly because he married a wife with good connections."
"A wealthy baker's daughter. That's a far cry from a lady of rank."
"That doesn't mean it can't happen. You're a fine man, a handsome man, if I do say so myself. You're young and strong, with a good education and gentlemanly manners-better manners than Sir Richard, anyway. And now that you own this house-"
"She lives in a mansion!" Snatching his arm free, he rose. "Do you really think she'd be happy here in Cheapside, with the butchers and merchants and tradesmen?"
Her aunt looked wounded. "I thought you liked this neighborhood."
Damn. "I do, but..." There was nothing for it but to tell her the truth. "She can't stand me, all right? I'd be the last person on earth she'd want to marry." Snatching up the report, he headed for the door. "I have to go."
"Jackson?"
"What?" he barked.
"If that's true, she's a fool."
Lady Celia was no fool. She simply knew better than to take up with a man who didn't know the identity of his own father. He managed a curt nod. "I'll see you tonight, Aunt."
As he left the house, an age-old anger weighed him down. He wouldn't hurt Aunt Ada for the world, but she didn't understand. Ever since he'd started #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries
Identity quotes by Jasleen Kaur Gumber
#30. I will be me,
when world aberrantly
will feel, my gravity!
I will turn into my,
when their shrill cry
will stop asking why!
(Poem:Because you so wanna meet me, Book: Ginger and Honey) #Quote by Jasleen Kaur Gumber
Identity quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#31. Sometimes the most important conversation we can have is with the waves of the ocean or the dewdrops on a blade of grass. Sometimes the easiest way to love yourself is to realize that you are all these things. You are everything you've ever loved. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Identity quotes by Audur Ava Olafsdottir
#32. Who I am is intrinsically linked to where I am and whom I'm with. #Quote by Audur Ava Olafsdottir
Identity quotes by Philip K. Dick
#33. I've married before and it was no better, and if I divorce Kathy I'll marry again - because as my brainbasher puts it I can't find my identity outside the role of husband and daddy and big butter-and-egg-man wage earner - and the next damn one will be the same because that's the kind I select. It's rooted in my temperament. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Identity quotes by Elizabeth Bowen
#34. The way one is envisaged by other people - what easier way is there of envisaging oneself? There is a fatalism in one's acceptance of it. Solitude is not the solution, one feels followed. Choice - choice of those who are to surround one, choice of those most likely to see you rightly - is the only escape. #Quote by Elizabeth Bowen
Identity quotes by Siddhartha Mukherjee
#35. The problem with racial discrimination, though, is not the inference of a person's race from their genetic characteristics. It is quite the opposite: it is the inference of a person's characteristics from their race. The question is not, can you, given an individual's skin color, hair texture, or language, infer something about their ancestry or origin. That is a question of biological systematics -- of lineage, taxonomy, of racial geography, of biological discrimination. Of course you can -- and genomics as vastly refined that inference. You can scan any individual genome and infer rather deep insights about a person's ancestry, or place of origin. But the vastly more controversial question is the converse: Given a racial identity -- African or Asian, say -- can you infer anything about an individual's characteristics: not just skin or hair color, but more complex features, such as intelligence, habits, personality, and aptitude? /I/ Genes can certainly tell us about race, but can race tell us anything about genes? /i/

To answer this question, we need to measure how genetic variation is distributed across various racial categories. Is there more diversity _within_ races or _between_ races? Does knowing that someone is of African versus European descent, say, allow us to refine our understanding of their genetic traits, or their personal, physical, or intellectual attributes in a meaningful manner? Or is there so much variation within Africans and Europeans that _i #Quote by Siddhartha Mukherjee
Identity quotes by Julie Delpy
#36. Too many women throw themselves into romance because they're afraid of being single, then start making compromises and losing their identity. I won't do that. #Quote by Julie Delpy
Identity quotes by Andrew Comiskey
#37. The image of God, then, involves gender identity and complementarity. God created gender in duality as male and female. #Quote by Andrew Comiskey
Identity quotes by Rebecca Goldstein
#38. Mother' is not an identity one can just try on for size ... #Quote by Rebecca Goldstein
Identity quotes by Tariq Ali
#39. Scotland's political identity was destroyed, and a huge Scottish emigration to North America followed the brutal Highland clearances. These included every layer of Scottish society, not just the remnants of the defeated clans. #Quote by Tariq Ali
Identity quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#40. If you never have sex you never gain a sense of power. You never gain a voice or an identity of your own. Sex is the act that separates us from our parents. Children from adults. It's by having sex that adolescents first rebel.
And if you never have sex, you never grow beyond everything else your parents taught you. If you never break the rule against sex, you won't break any other rule. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Identity quotes by Anne Frank
#41. Who has inflicted this upon us? Who has made us Jews different from all other people? Who has allowed us to suffer so terribly up till now? It is God that has made us as we are, but it will be God, too, who will raise us up again. If we bear all this suffering and if there are still Jews left, when it is over, then Jews, instead of being doomed, will be held up as an example. Who knows, it might even be our religion from which the world and all peoples learn good, and for that reason and that reason alone do we have to suffer now. We can never become just Netherlanders, or just English, or representatives of any country for that matter; we will always remain Jews, but we want to, too. #Quote by Anne Frank
Identity quotes by Antonio R Damasio
#42. The neural basis for the self, as I see it, resides with the continuous reactivation of at least two sets of representations. One set concerns representations of key events in an individual's autobiography, on the basis of which a notion of identity can be reconstructed repeatedly, by partial activation in topologically organized sensory maps ...
In brief, the endless reactivation of updated images about our identity (a combination of memories of the past and of the planned future) constitutes a sizable part of the state of self as I understand it.
The second set of representations underlying the neural self consists of the primordial representations of an individual's body ... Of necessity, this encompasses background body states and emotional states. The collective representation of the body constitute the basis for a "concept" of self, much as a collection of representations of shape, size, color, texture, and taste can constitute the basis for the concept of orange. #Quote by Antonio R Damasio
Identity quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#43. People exercise the freedom to present themselves from a vast array of precepts. The modern human mind can engage in reflective thought and selectively determine how to organize the elements of perception. We can consciously elect to depart from stereotypical behavior and transcend the heretofore-established biological behavioral preferences. People can elect to hold prejudices or not, can make rational or irrational decisions to engage in war or not, and can take deliberate steps to arrest destruction of the ecosystem or not. Holding ourselves in check by placing a brake upon the human propensity to strike out in instinctual behavior is a distinct human quality. Restraint from instant gratification of strong impulses represents a unique human behavior trait. By intentionally refraining from committing an instinctual action, humankind asserts its sovereignty from its biological constitution. Unbound from the limitations of its biological nature, a person can employ the mind to devise alternative behavioral choices and the results of numerous behavioral choices culminate to provide a person with a sophisticated definition of the self. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Identity quotes by Frederick Lenz
#44. Selfless giving changes our concept of our identity. When we give to others our unselfishness removes the spot of "self" that stained our awareness. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Identity quotes by Leo Buscaglia
#45. We need others. We need others to love and we need to be loved by them. There is no doubt that without it, we too, like the infant left alone, would cease to grow, cease to develop, choose madness and even death. #Quote by Leo Buscaglia
Identity quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#46. It wasn't that the Gospel proved useful for my many worries but that the Gospel proved the uselessness of my worries and so refocused my whole attention. #Quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen
Identity quotes by Flora Rheta Schreiber
#47. Well, it would have been easier if it were put on. But the only ruse of which I'm guilty is to have pretended for so long before coming to you that nothing was wrong. Pretending that the personalities did not exist has now caused me to lose about two days. #Quote by Flora Rheta Schreiber
Identity quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#48. I must be myself, I said over and over. I must forget these people buzzing inside my head, I must forget their voices, their smells, their demands, their love, their hate, and be myself, I must be myself, I told myself, as i gazed down at the legs resting so happily on the stool, and I told myself again as I looked up to watch the smoke I'd blown up to the ceiling; I must be myself, because if I failed to be myself, I become the person they wanted me to be; if I had to be that insufferable person, I'd rather be nothing at all. It would be better if I didn't exist,... #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Identity quotes by Maggie Macnab
#49. Optimal design delivers information in ways that are useful, beautiful and improve the experience of all involved: audience, client and designer. #Quote by Maggie Macnab
Identity quotes by Devdutt Pattanaik
#50. Like animals that seek food for their survival, humans yearn for meaning for their sanity: what is our value, our purpose and our identity in this world? As long as we seek validation from the world around us, we are entrapped by aham. As soon as we realize that all meaning comes from within, that it is we who make the world meaningful, we are liberated by atma. #Quote by Devdutt Pattanaik
Identity quotes by RuPaul
#51. Ego loves identity. Drag mocks identity. Ego hates drag. #Quote by RuPaul
Identity quotes by Emily Thorne
#52. A person's true identity can often be difficult to discern, even to themselves, causing one to question their character, their calling, their very existence. For most, time gives clarity, but for others, these questions remained unanswered for an identity can not be fully defined when it is a guarded secret. #Quote by Emily Thorne
Identity quotes by Sheena Iyengar
#53. Whether we do it consciously or subconsciously, we tend to organize our lives to display our identity as accurately as possible. Our lifestyle choices often reveal our values, or at least what we'd like people to perceive as our values ... as we make our everyday choices, we continuously calculate not just which choices best match who we are and what we want but also how those choices will be interpreted by others. We look for cues in our social environment to figure out what others think of this or that, which can require being sensitive to the most localized and up-to-date details of what a particular choice means. #Quote by Sheena Iyengar
Identity quotes by Tom Allen
#54. If the parties get too close together they lose their identities, if they get too far apart you're not going to get a whole lot done because you almost always need to have some folks on the other side of the aisle to accomplish anything. #Quote by Tom Allen
Identity quotes by Meraaqi
#55. I want to
peel away all the labels
I had once given to others
and place them
upon the fabric
of my own identity.

They have reflected back to me,
everything that I refuse
to See in myself. #Quote by Meraaqi
Identity quotes by Kathleen Silber
#56. The adoptee benefits because his collective parents are permitted to grow secure in their particular roles in his life. His adoptive parents are not unwittingly encouraged to compete to possess him. Nor are his birth parents punished and banished from a place in his life. #Quote by Kathleen Silber
Identity quotes by Jonathan Swift
#57. A carpenter is known by his chips. #Quote by Jonathan Swift
Identity quotes by Jack Kornfield
#58. sorrow or a wound can heal, allowing us to grow into our fullest, most compassionate identity, our greatness of heart. When we truly come to terms with sorrow, a great and unshakable joy is born in our heart. HEALING #Quote by Jack Kornfield
Identity quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#59. You are not 'in the now;' you are the now. That is your essential identity-the only thing that never changes. Life is always now. Now is consciousness. And consciousness is who you are. That's the equation. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Identity quotes by Marty Rubin
#60. I'm not the person I used to be. I never was. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Identity quotes by Ayn Rand
#61. There, he thought, was the final abortion of the creed of collective interdependence, the creed of non-identity, non-property, non-fact: the belief that the moral stature of one is at the mercy of the action of another. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Identity quotes by Tom Ford
#62. I think people who are attracted to the fashion industry are people who are really insecure and looking for a certain identity. #Quote by Tom Ford
Identity quotes by Anthony Marais
#63. Identity seems to be non-existent at a personal level - at best we can end up in a minority, and those who discuss it most are just those people who are aware of its absence in themselves. #Quote by Anthony Marais
Identity quotes by Kyell Gold
#64. We should be having discussions about gay identity, helping other athletes to come out, being a positive force. Instead we're getting dragged down into questions of who fucks whom, and what does your family think, and is everything that happens to you in your entire life now because you came out? #Quote by Kyell Gold
Identity quotes by Afnan Ahmad Mia
#65. Our identity has already been chosen for us; but it is up to us to accept it, or fight and change it. #Quote by Afnan Ahmad Mia
Identity quotes by Jason C. Miller
#66. I tend to listen to the artists that originally inspired me to start playing music in the first place, because there is a multitude of wisdom that can be gained by bands like Black Sabbath, Depeche Mode, Pink Floyd and the Cure. I think if we were to pay close attention to what's on the radio right now then we'd lose our identity entirely. #Quote by Jason C. Miller
Identity quotes by Nicos Hadjicostis
#67. Through "posts" and "sharing," by exhibiting one's loves and tastes, personal stories, photos, and more, each "curates" a public image of oneself on the web, to which one then continually strives to conform. Personal identity becomes one's reflection in the others' eyes. #Quote by Nicos Hadjicostis
Identity quotes by Lucy Chau Lai-Tuen
#68. I have no definable history before I was abandoned and taken in by the orphanage in Hong Kong. I truly am a blank sheet. I have been disconnected from my ancestors. I don't know who they are, where they came from or whether any of their line still exists. The ancestral umbilical cord that would have connected me to my past and linked me to my future, was permanently severed. It cannot be reattached #Quote by Lucy Chau Lai-Tuen
Identity quotes by Jonathan Martin
#69. Now do you understand why it's so important for you to grasp your belovedness? God won't change the world through angels or through ideas; He will change the world through His sons and daughters. If you don't know who you are, if you don't know your true identity, you won't touch others on His behalf. #Quote by Jonathan Martin
Identity quotes by Philip K. Dick
#70. You put on a bishop's robe and miter, he pondered, and walk around in that, and people bow and genuflect and like that, and try to kiss your ring, if not your ass, and pretty soon you're a bishop. So to speak. What is identity? he asked himself. Where does the act end? Nobody knows. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Identity quotes by Thomas Merton
#71. Memory is corrupted and ruined by a crowd of memories. If I am going to have a true memory, there are a thousand things that must first be forgotten. Memory is not fully itself when it reaches only into the past. A memory that is not alive to the present does not remember the here and now, does not remember its true identity, is not memory at all. He who remembers nothing but facts and past events, and is never brought back into the present, is a victim of amnesia. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Identity quotes by John O'Donohue
#72. In everyone's life, there is great need for an anam cara, a soul friend. In this love, you are understood as you are without mask or pretension. The superficial and functional lies and half-truths of social acquaintance fall away, you can be as you really are. Love allows understanding to dawn, and understanding is precious. Where you are understood, you are at home. Understanding nourishes belonging. When you really feel understood, you feel free to release yourself into the trust and shelter of the other person's soul. This recognition is described in a beautiful line from Pablo Neruda: "You are like nobody since I love you." This art of love discloses the special and sacred identity of the other person. Love is the only light that can truly read the secret signature of the other person's individuality and soul. Love alone is literate in the world of origin; it an decipher identity and destiny. #Quote by John O'Donohue
Identity quotes by Durga Chew-Bose
#73. What tethers me to my parents is the unspoken dialogue we share about how much of my character is built on the connection I feel to the world they were raised in but that I've only experienced through photos, visits, food. It's not mine and yet, I get it. First-generation kids, I've always thought, are the personification of déjà vu. #Quote by Durga Chew-Bose
Identity quotes by Mario Livio
#74. The properties that define a group are:

1. Closure. The offspring of any two members combined by the operation must itself be a member. In the group of integers, the sum of any two integers is also an integer (e.g., 3 + 5 = 8).

2. Associativity. The operation must be associative-when combining (by the operation) three ordered members, you may combine any two of them first, and the result is the same, unaffected by the way they are bracketed. Addition, for instance, is associative: (5 + 7) + 13 = 25 and 5 + (7 + 13) = 25, where the parentheses, the "punctuation marks" of mathematics, indicate which pair you add first.

3. Identity element. The group has to contain an identity element such that when combined with any member, it leaves the member unchanged. In the group of integers, the identity element is the number zero. For example, 0 + 3 = 3 + 0 = 3.

4. Inverse. For every member in the group there must exist an inverse. When a member is combined with its inverse, it gives the identity element. For the integers, the inverse of any number is the number of the same absolute value, but with the opposite sign: e.g., the inverse of 4 is -4 and the inverse of -4 is 4; 4 + (-4) = 0 and (-4) + 4 = 0.

The fact that this simple definition can lead to a theory that embraces and unifies all the symmetries of our world continues to amaze even mathematicians. #Quote by Mario Livio
Identity quotes by Matthew Weiner
#75. Identity is part of drama to me. Who am I, why am I behaving this way, and am I aware of it? #Quote by Matthew Weiner
Identity quotes by Mike Krzyzewski
#76. First of all, what happens is, when you're good at something, you spend a lot of time with it. People identify you with that sport, so it becomes part of your identity. #Quote by Mike Krzyzewski
Identity quotes by Stella Adler
#77. It's not important to know who you are. It's important to know what you do, and then to do it like hercules! #Quote by Stella Adler
Identity quotes by Salena Godden
#78. Human colour is the colour I'm truly interested in, the colour of your humanity. May the size of your heart and the depth of your soul be your currency. Welcome aboard my Good Ship. Let us sail to the colourful island of mixed identity.
"SHADE" - Salena Godden #Quote by Salena Godden
Identity quotes by Sara Sheridan
#79. My family spans many world religions, ethnicities and nationalities. The truth is that I don't have one identity. I'm Scottish, British, European, Humanist, Atheist and in part at least, culturally Jewish. #Quote by Sara Sheridan
Identity quotes by Elizabeth Howell
#80. having DID in itself creates intense shame. A person continually has to deal with not remembering what one has said or done. Thus, the person with DID must be quick with inferences and cover-ups. Unfortunately, this often convinces her, as well as others, that she is a liar. #Quote by Elizabeth Howell
Identity quotes by Lindsay Detwiler
#81. No one can soothe my inner being like you. No one can make me look to the future with such excitement like you did. No one can understand me, fulfill me, fit me like you did." ~Emma Ranstein #Quote by Lindsay Detwiler
Identity quotes by Cassandra Clare
#82. I may not believe in sin," he said, "but I do feel guilt. We Shadowhunters live by a code, and that code isn't flexible. Honor, fault, penance, those are real to us, and they have nothing to do with religion and everything to do with who we are. This is who I am, Clary," he said desperately. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Identity quotes by Farley Maglaya
#83. It's Unfair to be fair,
For Life is unfair #Quote by Farley Maglaya
Identity quotes by Sieglinde Lemke
#84. Sometimes diaspora art expresses a longing for home, and frequently it tries to construct a collective identity out of its mostly heterogeneous reality. #Quote by Sieglinde Lemke
Identity quotes by Utkarsh Ambudkar
#85. You have to find a way - and thankfully for me, it's been music - to separate yourself from the racial identity. It's not easy, and I continue to work, God bless, and I'm really, truly appreciative of it. #Quote by Utkarsh Ambudkar
Identity quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#86. Focus attention on the feeling inside you. Know that it is the pain-body. Accept that it is there. Don't think about it - don't let the feeling turn into thinking. Don't judge or analyze. Don't make an identity for yourself out of it. Stay present, and continue to be the observer of what is happening inside you. Become aware not only of the emotional pain but also of "the one who observes," the silent watcher. This is the power of the Now, the power of your own conscious presence. Then see what happens. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Identity quotes by Jason Bateman
#87. Starting at age 10, my personality and my identity all stemmed from employment. I had a set to be at. I was a certain way with the cameraman, a certain way with the makeup lady - a normal, routine environment. #Quote by Jason Bateman
Identity quotes by Mona Caird
#88. We are governed not by armies and police but by ideas. #Quote by Mona Caird
Identity quotes by Reni Eddo-Lodge
#89. Discussing racism is not the same thing as discussing 'black identity'. Discussing racism is about discussing white identity. It's about white anxiety. It's about asking why whiteness has this reflexive need to define itself against immigrant bogey monsters in order to feel comfortable, safe and secure. Why am I saying one thing, and white people are hearing something completely different? #Quote by Reni Eddo-Lodge
Identity quotes by Isaac Asimov
#90. You see, proteins, as I probably needn't tell you, are immensely complicated groupings of amino acids and certain other specialized compounds, arranged in intricate three-dimensional patterns that are as unstable as sunbeams on a cloudy day. It is this instability that is life, since it is forever changing its position in an effort to maintain its identity
in the manner of a long rod balanced on an acrobat's nose. #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Identity quotes by Kate Winslet
#91. I've had a very full and lovely career so far, and I can't honestly say that I've ever really found myself in a man's world, struggling for an identity or trying to prove something. #Quote by Kate Winslet
Identity quotes by Robert Ludlum
#92. I mean, we're all trying to find out who the hell we are, aren't we? #Quote by Robert Ludlum
Identity quotes by Jonathan Lethem
#93. Dylan never met anyone who wasn't about to change immediately into someone else. His was a special talent for encountering persons about to shed one identity or disguise for another. #Quote by Jonathan Lethem
Identity quotes by Abdal Hakim Murad
#94. Those who come to Islam because they wish to draw closer to God have no problem with a multiform Islam radiating from a single revealed paradigmatic core. But those who come to Islam seeking an identity will find the multiplicity of traditional Muslim cultures intolerable. People with confused identities are attracted to totalitarian solutions. And today, many young Muslims feel so threatened by the diversity of calls on their allegiance, and by the sheer complexity of modernity, that the only form of Islam they can regard as legitimate is a totalitarian, monolithic one. That there should be four schools of Islamic law is to them unbearable. That Muslim cultures should legitimately differ is a species of blasphemy. #Quote by Abdal Hakim Murad

#95. When we speak, dress, and think like others, we live with the goal of achieving the approval they have #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Identity quotes by Frank Knight
#96. The possibility of saying anything about a thing rests on the assumption that it preserves its identity, or continues to be the same thing in the respect described, that it will behave in future situations as it has in past. #Quote by Frank Knight
Identity quotes by Greg Egan
#97. Paul closed his eyes and turned his face to the sun. In spite of everything, it was hard not to take solace from the warmth flooding onto his skin. He stretched the muscles in his arms, his shoulders, his back -- and it felt like he was reaching out from the "self" in his virtual skull to all his mathematical flesh, imprinting the nebulous data with meaning; binding it all together, staking some kind of claim. He felt the stirrings of an erection. Existence was beginning to seduce him. He let himself surrender for a moment to a visceral sense of identity which drowned out all his pale mental images of optical processors, all his abstract reflections on the software's approximations and short-cuts. This body didn't want to evaporate. This body didn't want to bale out. It didn't much care that there was another -- "more real" -- version of itself elsewhere. It wanted to retain its wholeness. It wanted to endure. #Quote by Greg Egan
Identity quotes by Richard J. Borden
#98. The border between personal and transpersonal experience is a complex region. It is a territory often filled with spiritual and religious views. Within psychology it was a significant preoccupation of William James, Carl Jung, Abraham Maslow, and many others. But these margins may be seen in other ways as well. There is substantial evidence from psychological studies of personal space that we carry body boundaries of extended space around ourselves. These spatial extensions are not only personal. They may be felt by groups as well - in terms of shared "social" space, communal territories, or even national identities. #Quote by Richard J. Borden
Identity quotes by Warwick Middleton
#99. It's been very interesting over the years just how many of those psychiatrists that were openly incredulous and dismissive have become stalwart admitants to the [trauma and dissociation] unit. In fact I can remember one psychiatrist ... this is going back more than a decade and a half ... it says something about the ambivalence about this area ... who rang me saying he doesn't believe that DID exists but nevertheless he's got a patient with it that he'd like to refer. That's called Psychiatrist Multiple Reality Disorder.

Identity quotes by Tony Evans
#100. Nobody is born a drug addict or a homosexual. Christians may be performing in these unacceptable ways, but that's not who they are. It's an identity issue. #Quote by Tony Evans
Identity quotes by Henry Louis Gates
#101. I rebel at the notion that I can't be part of other groups, that I can't construct identities through elective affinity, that race must be the most important thing about me. Is that what I want on my gravestone: Here lies an African American? #Quote by Henry Louis Gates
Identity quotes by Herman Melville
#102. But lulled into such an opium-like listlessness of vacant, unconscious reverie is this absent-minded youth by the blending cadence of waves with thoughts, that at last he loses his identity; #Quote by Herman Melville
Identity quotes by Debra Meyerson
#103. Since so much of our identity is constructed through our social relationships, which rely so heavily on language, aphasia can obliterate that feeling of belonging #Quote by Debra Meyerson
Identity quotes by C.D. Reiss
#104. He looked as if he wanted to tear me open and crawl inside me. And I wanted him to. Fuck me. Fuck my identity. Fuck my own skin and soul. #Quote by C.D. Reiss
Identity quotes by Milan Kundera
#105. He thought: that's certainly how it starts. One day a person puts his legs up on a bench, then night comes and he falls asleep. That's how it happens that one fine day a person joins the tramps and turns into one of them. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Identity quotes by Neel Burton
#106. The things that people laugh about most are their errors and inadequacies; the difficult challenges that they face such as personal identity, social and sexual relationships, and death; and incongruity, absurdity, and meaninglessness. These are all deeply human concerns and challenges: just as no one has ever seen a laughing dog, so no one has ever heard about a laughing god. #Quote by Neel Burton
Identity quotes by Brit Hume
#107. MSNBC got some very good people. They've got a good-looking set. All They're first-class. Somewhere along the way, they kind of lost their identity as a news channel, and they started doing a lot of other sort of magazine-type programming. #Quote by Brit Hume
Identity quotes by Zygmunt Bauman
#108. Even if the self he or she is struggling to display and get recognized is deemed by the actor to precede, pre-empt and predetermine the choice of individual identity (ethnic, race, religious and gender ascriptions claim to belong to that category of self), it is the urge of selection and the effort to make the choice publicly recognizable that constitutes the self-definition of the liquid modern individual. That effort would have hardly been undertaken if the identity in question was indeed endowed with the determining power it claims and/or is believed to possess. #Quote by Zygmunt Bauman
Identity quotes by Zoe Marriott
#109. No one knows me. Not anymore #Quote by Zoe Marriott
Identity quotes by David Hawkins
#110. The body is like a companion, a friendly pet that follows one around ... One can continue to own the body and be responsible for it without identifying with it as one's identity. #Quote by David Hawkins
Identity quotes by Aleister Crowley
#111. Every individual has some qualities that endear him to some other. And per contra, I doubt if there is any class which is not detestable to some other class. Artists, police, the clergy, "reds," foxhunters, Freemasons, Jews, "heaven-born," women's clubwomen (especially in U.S.A.), "Methodys," golfers, dog-lovers; you can't find one body without its "natural" enemies. It's right, what's worse; every class, as a class, is almost sure to have more defects than qualities. As soon as you put men together, they somehow sink, corporatively, below the level of the worst of the individuals composing it. Collect scholars on a club committee, or men of science on a jury; all their virtues vanish, and their vices pop out, reinforced by the self-confidence which the power of numbers is bound to bestow. #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Identity quotes by Elizabeth Miyu Blake
#112. We live in one world together. It's more important than ever to be friend to all. #Quote by Elizabeth Miyu Blake
Identity quotes by Dan White Jr.
#113. Expert Pamela Rutledge explained in an article for Psychology Today that taking selfies is indicative of the tornado of narcissism. The selfie is the appropriate snapshot of the state of identity in the West. Paranoia that people don't see us, understand us, or find us essential is pushing, pushing, pushing self-expression to the center of our daily life. #Quote by Dan White Jr.
Identity quotes by Liz Phair
#114. My identity has everything to do with me and my instrument. It doesn't have to do with what production style I use, or how many people played on it, whether it's sparse or grandiose or whatever. And I'm social, frankly. #Quote by Liz Phair
Identity quotes by Tzvetan Todorov
#115. Every individual is multicultural; cultures are not monolithic islands but criss-crossed alluvial plains. Individual identity stems from the encounter of multiple collective identities within one and the same person; each of our various affiliations contributes to the formation of the unique creature that we are. Human beings are not all similar, or entirely different; they are all plural within themselves, and share their constitutive traits with very varied groups, combining them in an individual way. The cohabitation of different types of belonging within each one of us does not in general cause any problems- and this ought , in turn, to arouse admiration: like a juggler, we keep all the balls of our identity in the air at once, with the greatest ease!
Individual identity results from the interweaving of several collective identities; it is not alone in this respect. What is the origin of the culture of a human group? The reply- paradoxically- is that it comes from previous cultures. A new culture arises from the encounter between several smaller cultures, or from the decomposition of a bigger culture, or from interaction with neighboring culture. There is never a human life prior to the advent of culture. #Quote by Tzvetan Todorov
Identity quotes by Laurent Fabius
#116. Thanks to the euro, our pockets will soon hold solid evidence of a European identity. We need to build on this, and make the euro more than a currency and Europe more than a territory ... In the next six months, we will talk a lot about political union, and rightly so. Political union is inseparable from economic union. Stronger growth and Euorpean integration are related issues. In both areas we will take concrete steps forward. #Quote by Laurent Fabius
Identity quotes by Lawrence J. Vale
#117. the symbolic dimensions of disaster and recovery cannot be separated from political history. Even as buildings and memorials become the touchstones of memory and identity, they are also implicated in larger social, cultural, and political processes. #Quote by Lawrence J. Vale

Identity quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#120. Wearing a mask can thus be a strange thing: sometimes, more often than we tend to believe, there is more truth in the mask that in what we assume to be our "real self. #Quote by Slavoj Zizek
Identity quotes by Evgeny Morozov
#121. There is no doubt that the Internet brims with spamming, scamming and identity fraud. Having someone wipe out your hard drive or bank account has never been easier, and the tools for committing electronic mischief on your enemies are cheap and widely accessible. #Quote by Evgeny Morozov
Identity quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#122. Americans share an affinity to establish a distinctive identity and know one's self in a physiological, psychological, and spiritual sense, and we strive to attain self-actualization, self-realization, and/or bliss. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Identity quotes by Kim Gordon
#123. Families are like little villages. You know where everything is, you know how everything works, your identity is fixed, and you can't really leave, or connect with anything or anybody outside, until your physically no longer there. #Quote by Kim Gordon
Identity quotes by Sally Miller Gearhart
#124. I was so excited to be able to say that I was a lesbian that I would shake hands with strangers on the street and say, 'Hi! I'm Sally Gearhart and I'm a lesbian.' Once, appearing on a panel program, I began, 'I'm Sally Lesbian and I'm a gearhart!' I realized then that I had put too much of my identity into being lesbian. #Quote by Sally Miller Gearhart
Identity quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Identity quotes by Adrian Goebbels.

Identity quotes by Doris Roberts
#127. I used to sit near Marilyn Monroe in the Actor's Studio. She'd get dressed up because that was her identity. Sad. Those cameras wouldn't leave her alone. She didn't know where to hide. #Quote by Doris Roberts
Identity quotes by Hanif Kureishi
#128. These days everyone was insisting on their identity, coming out as a man, woman, gay, black, Jew - brandishing whichever features they could claim, as if without a tag they wouldn't be human. #Quote by Hanif Kureishi
Identity quotes by Ben Dreyfuss
#129. American films are the best films. This is a fact. Cinema is - along with Jazz - the great American art form. And cinema in a very real sense created the American identity that has been exported around the world. #Quote by Ben Dreyfuss
Identity quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#130. If Turkey become a member of the EU, of course Turks would lose a part of this identity, just as Europe would lose a part of its own. It would also be a different Europe then. Accepting Turkey into the EU is an ambitious political endeavor of historical proportions. Europe would become a strong, multi-religious unit. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Identity quotes by Gregory A. Boyd
#131. For the first time I was beginning to discern a God whom I actually wanted to live for. I was beginning to discover the motivation of Paul when he proclaimed, "Christ's love compels us" (2 Cor. 5: 14). All my life I'd tried to be good to avoid hell, or the ugly-stick flogging, or my stepmother's beatings with a two-by-four. But while most people would undoubtedly be better at behaving well with these frightful motivations than I ever was, no one could ever be transformed by these sorts of motivations. Threatening motivations address behavior, but they can never transform our identity. They motivate people to change as a means of protecting themselves, but for this reason they can never move us beyond ourselves to become someone fundamentally different from who we currently are. And threatening motivations can certainly never transform us into people with an other-oriented, self-sacrificial, loving character. Only a motivation that is anchored in love can do this. #Quote by Gregory A. Boyd
Identity quotes by J.D. Greear
#132. My identity and my security are not in my spiritual progress. My identity and my security are in God's acceptance of me given as a gift in Christ. #Quote by J.D. Greear
Identity quotes by Neil Gaiman
#133. We all have so many functions, so many ways of existing. In my own vision of myself, I am a scholar who lives quietly, and pens his little tales, and dreams about a past that may or may not have existed. And that is true, as far as it goes. But I am also, in one of my capacities, like so many of the people you have chosen to associate with, a psychopomp. I escort the living to the world of the dead. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Identity quotes by Catherine Toon
#134. Love is beautiful, and He looks amazing on you! #Quote by Catherine Toon
Identity quotes by Dalai Lama
#135. Reality is devoid of any intrinsic identity that can be captured by any one single proposition - that is what Buddha meant by "voidness." #Quote by Dalai Lama
Identity quotes by Yukio Mishima
#136. …Shunsuké hated the preoccupation with modern psychology that judged his casual, offhand remarks or his daily actions as betraying his identity or ideas with better clarity than did his highly polished sentences. #Quote by Yukio Mishima
Identity quotes by Stephen Covey
#137. The true identity theft is not financial. It's not in cyberspace. It's spiritual. It's been taken. #Quote by Stephen Covey
Identity quotes by Stefan Emunds
#138. The soul is imbued with a yearning that is carried, like a torch, from incarnation to incarnation. It burns with a curiosity about life and it's true identity. Souls live, strive, and evolve, driven to seeking the truth about the world and themselves. #Quote by Stefan Emunds
Identity quotes by Herbert Lockyer
#139. If you have a dear one in Heaven your heart yearns to see, do not despair, for you will meet again. The voice you loved to hear, you will hear again. The identity of the one you were near to on Earth remains the same, and instant recognition will be yours as you meet, never to part again. Your beloved one is only lost awhile. #Quote by Herbert Lockyer

#141. Treating an identity as an illness invites real illness to make a braver stand. #Quote by Andrew Solomon
Identity quotes by Shane Claiborne
#142. Christians can no longer refer to 'our troops' or 'our history' because of their new identity. Fabricated boundaries and walls are removed for the Christian. One's neighbor is not only from Chicago but also from Baghdad. One's brother or sister in the church could be from Iran or California
no difference! Our family is transnational and borderless; we are in Iraq, and we are in Palestine. And if we are indeed to become born again, we will have to begin talking like it, changing the meaning of we, us, my, and our. #Quote by Shane Claiborne
Identity quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#143. You two should really get a room," Apollo said from out of nowhere.
"My poor eyes ... "
I groaned. Even in his true identity, he still had impeccable timing.
"Gods," Aiden spat. He pulled back, casting Apollo a disgusted look over my head. "Do you get off on sneaking up on us?"
"You probably don't want to know what I get off on. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Identity quotes by Kimberly Giles
#144. You have probably worked your entire life to create a sense of identity around your job, your family, your hobbies, or your physical characteristics. But none of these is who you really are. You are not what you look like. You are not your family. You are not your job, income, or performance. You are not your current situation or the mistakes you have made. Mistakes are just locations on your journey; they have nothing to do with who you are, and neither does what you do or how successful you are.
You are bigger than all those things. You are much more than just a businessman or a mom or a student. You are a divine, irreplaceable, one-of-a-kind, amazing, loving, eternal being, and your value comes from that fact alone. You come from God, who is love, which to me would mean - you are love too. You have to be. And if you are love then nothing you do or don't do can change your value, because no matter what you do or how many mistakes you make, you are still YOU; you are still LOVE. You can't help it. You cannot be anything else. #Quote by Kimberly Giles
Identity quotes by Loren Eiseley
#145. We are rag dolls made out of many ages and skins, changelings who have slept in wood nests or hissed in the uncouth guise of waddling amphibians. We have played such roles for infinitely longer ages than we have been men. Our identity is a dream. We are process, not reality, for reality is an illusion of the daylight - the light of our particular day. #Quote by Loren Eiseley
Identity quotes by Mary Robinson
#146. Symbols give us our identity, our self image, our way of explaining ourselves to ourselves and to others. Symbols in turn determine the kinds of stories we tell, and the stories we tell determine the kind of history we make and remake. #Quote by Mary Robinson
Identity quotes by Paul Kalanithi
#147. Being with patients in these moments certainly had its emotional cost, but it also had its rewards. I don't think I ever spent a minute of any day wondering why I did this work, or whether it was worth it. The call to protect life - and not merely life but another's identity; it is perhaps not too much to say another's soul - was obvious in its sacredness. Before #Quote by Paul Kalanithi
Identity quotes by Mark Haddon
#148. None of them were greatly interested in the election except as a national soap opera in which the closeness of the result was more exciting than the identity of the winner. Individually, they were passionate about GP fundholding, academy schools, asylum, but none of them trusted any party to keep a promise about any of these issues. Louisa struggled to believe that she could change herself, let alone the world. #Quote by Mark Haddon

Identity quotes by Anonymous
#150. When our identity is found in Christ, we are free to be honest (James 5:16). If you have faith in Christ, your new identity is secure and robust. Your new identity in Christ is deeper than any of your wounds, sins, suffering, trials, and failures. #Quote by Anonymous

Identity quotes by Lee Child
#153. The guy on the left shrugged and raised up an inch off his chair and dug in his back pants pocket. The other guy did the same. Reacher watched. Safe enough. No one kept a weapon in his back pants pocket. Uncomfortable. Not readily accessible. The guys came out with two IDs each. Plastic, the size of credit cards. But not. They were national identity cards, and driver's licenses. Both had Bundesrepublik Deutschland at the top. Germany. The Federal Republic. The photographs were right. The guy on the left was named Bernd Durnberger, and the guy on the right was named Klaus Augenthaler. Reacher #Quote by Lee Child

Identity quotes by Judith Warner
#155. What kind of choice is it, really, when motherhood forces you into a delicate balancing act
not just between work and family, as the equation is typically phrased, but between your premotherhood and postmotherhood identities? What kind of choice is it when you have to choose between becoming a mother and remaining yourself? #Quote by Judith Warner
Identity quotes by Mohsin Hamid
#156. When the machine of a human being is turned on, it seems to produce a protagonist, just as a television produces an image. I think this protagonist, this self, often recognizes that it is a fictional construct, but it also recognizes that thinking of itself as such might cause it to disintegrate. #Quote by Mohsin Hamid
Identity quotes by Bell Hooks
#157. Often their rage erupts because they believe that all ways of looking that highlight difference subvert the liberal belief in a universal subjectivity (we are all just people) that they think will make racism disappear. They have a deep emotional investment in the myth of sameness even as their actions reflect the primacy of whiteness as a sign informing who they are and how they think. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Identity quotes by Olga Trujillo
#158. The creation of these "happy" parts felt different from the splitting that began at my fingertips when I was under attack. Entering these "good" parts felt less noticeable. There was some dizziness and light-headedness, but it was mainly just a gentle shifting in my mind.

I was unsure of where my body started and ended for just a few seconds. #Quote by Olga Trujillo
Identity quotes by Dustin Lynch
#159. I picked Dad's guitar up when I was 8. It hurt to play, so I put it down and picked it back up when I was 15 and dug in. The guitar helped me come out of my shell and kind of gave me an identity at school. #Quote by Dustin Lynch
Identity quotes by Joel Hunter

Identity quotes by Tim Tebow
#163. Regardless of how your life will impact others and what that will look like, I just know that when your identity is grounded in God, when you trust in Him, you become part of a bigger picture. And you begin to live out this wonderful poem He has written for your life. This is the truth when life is smooth sailing, and this is the truth when storms come. #Quote by Tim Tebow
Identity quotes by Huston Piner
#164. At Chadham High, the safest place to be gay was in the closet. #Quote by Huston Piner
Identity quotes by Florence Williams
#165. To the Finnish, being outdoors in nature isn't about paying homage to nature or to ourselves, the way it tends to be for Americans. We fetishize are life lists, catalog peaks bagged and capture pristine scenes of grand wilderness It is largely an individual experience. For the Finnish, though, nature is about expressing a close-knit identity. Nature is where they can exult in their nationalistic obsessions of berry-picking, mushrooming, fishing, lake swimming and Nordic skiing. #Quote by Florence Williams
Identity quotes by Judith Butler
#166. To be touched is, of course, to undergo something that comes from the outside, so I am, quite fundamentally, occasioned by that which is outside of me, which I undergo, and this undergoing designates a certain passivity, but not one that is understood as the opposite of 'activity.' To undergo this touch means that there must be a certain openness to the outside that postpones the plausibility of any claim to self-identity. The 'I' is occasioned by alterity, and that occasion persists as its necessary animating structure. Indeed, if there is to be self-representation, if I am to speak the 'I' in language, then this autobiographical reference has been enabled from elsewhere, has undergone what is not itself. Through this undergoing, an 'I' has emerged. #Quote by Judith Butler
Identity quotes by Buan Boonaca
#167. He thought he vomited out his soul. If ghosts were made of ectoplasm and ghosts were basically souls without bodies, then it was perfectly logical that the green mess all over the ground was his ectoplasmic essence. #Quote by Buan Boonaca

Identity quotes by Aldous Huxley
#170. A whole population of strangers inhabited and shaped that little body, lived in that mind and controlled its wishes, dictated its thoughts ... The name was an abstraction, a title arbitrarily given, like "France" or "England," to a collection, never long the same, of many individuals who were born, lived, and died within him, as the inhabitants of a country appear and disappear, but keep alive in their passage the identity of the nation to which they belong. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Identity quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#171. My friend, I am not what I seem. Seeming is but a garment I wear - a care-woven garment that protects me from thy questionings and thee from my negligence. The "I" in me, my friend, dwells in the house of silence, and therein it shall remain for ever more, unperceived, unapproachable. #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Identity quotes by Ashly Lorenzana
#172. People leave imprints on our lives, shaping who we become in much the same way that a symbol is pressed into the page of a book to tell you who it comes from. Dogs, however, leave paw prints on our lives and our souls, which are as unique as fingerprints in every way. #Quote by Ashly Lorenzana
Identity quotes by Jason Kirkey
#173. There is a saying that 'the psychotic drowns in the waters that the mystic swims in.' The health and structural integrity of the ego means the difference between spiritual emergence, the unfolding of a transpersonal identity; and a spiritual emergency a crisis brought on by the same unfolding, during which the foundations of sanity can be shaken. #Quote by Jason Kirkey
Identity quotes by Helene Wecker
#174. He'd lived so long in anticipation of his own death that to contemplate his future was like standing at the edge of a cliff, staring into a vertiginous rush of open sky. #Quote by Helene Wecker
Identity quotes by Elisabeth Badinter
#175. Those who have taken a rather more pragmatic and individualist position on not having children tend to talk directly in terms of personal fulfillment. They have made a choice to live their lives in a particular way, associating motherhood with burden and loss - of freedom, energy, money, pleasure, intimacy, and even identity. A child is synonymous with sacrifice and frustrating, even repellent, obligations; it is perhaps a threat to the stability and happiness of one's relationships. They refer to themselves as "child-free" rather than childless because they are free of children and therefore of motherhood. #Quote by Elisabeth Badinter
Identity quotes by Kenneth G. Mills
#176. The fire of the diamond of true Identity is always there; it just needs the Master's crafting to reveal it. #Quote by Kenneth G. Mills

Identity quotes by Megan K. Stack
#180. Here is the truth: It matters, what you do at war. It matters more than you ever want to know. Because countries, like people, have collective consciences and memories and souls, and the violence we deliver in the name of our nation is pooled like sickly tar at the bottom of who we are. ... We may wish it were not so, but action amounts to identity. We become what we do. #Quote by Megan K. Stack
Identity quotes by John Hume
#181. There were two mentalities, and both mentalities had to change. There was what I called the Afrikaner mind set of the Unionist politicians, which was holding all power in their own hands, and discriminating, and their objective was to protect their identity. #Quote by John Hume
Identity quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#182. I consider myself an average man, except in the fact that I consider myself an average man. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Identity quotes by Michelle Obama
#183. At this point, I'd been First Lady for just over two months. In different moments, I'd felt overwhelmed by the pace, unworthy of the glamour, anxious about our children, and uncertain of my purpose. There are pieces of public life, of giving up one's privacy to become a walking, talking symbol of a nation, that can seem specifically designed to strip away part of your identity. But here, finally, speaking to those girls, I felt something completely different and pure - an alignment of my old self with this new role. Are you good enough? Yes, you are, all of you. I told the students of Elizabeth Garrett Anderson that they'd touched my heart. I told them that they were precious, because they truly were. And when my talk was over, I did what was instinctive. I hugged absolutely every single girl I could reach. #Quote by Michelle Obama
Identity quotes by George Brandis
#184. The great works belong to no one nation, no one cultural tradition even. They are universal. #Quote by George Brandis
Identity quotes by Mesa Selimovic
#185. But we belong to no one, we're always on some frontier, always someone's dowry. Is it then surprising that we're poor? For centuries we've been trying to find, trying to recognize ourselves. Soon we won't even know who we are, we're already forgetting that we've even been striving for anything. Others do us the honor of letting us march under their banners, since we have none of our own. They entice us when they need us, and reject us when we're no longer any use to them. The saddest land in the world, the most unhappy people in the world. We're losing our identity, but we cannot assume another, foreign one. We've been severed from our roots, but haven't become part of anything else; foreign to everyone, both to those who are our kin and those who won't take us in and adopt us as their own. We live at a crossroads of worlds, at a border between peoples, in everyone's way. And someone always thinks we're to blame for something. The waves of history crash against us, as against a reef. We're fed up with those in power and we've made a virtue out of distress: we've become noble-minded out of spite. You're ruthless on a whim. So who's backward? #Quote by Mesa Selimovic
Identity quotes by John Doerr
#186. There's this large trend - I think the next trend in the Web, sort of Web 2.0 - which is to have users really express, offer, and market their own content, their own persona, their identity. #Quote by John Doerr
Identity quotes by Ian Fleming
#187. Bond grinned with pleasure. What most warmed him was that M. himself should have rung up Mathis. This was quite unheard of. The very existence of M., let alone his identity, was never admitted. He could imagine the flutter this must have caused in the ultra-security-minded organization in London. #Quote by Ian Fleming
Identity quotes by Bianca Scardoni
#188. Everything about the house was rich, and dense, and rooted. It was everything I wasn't. Even the air, with its distinct smell of oak wood and sage, spoke to its identify and its history. I couldn't help but feel small here. Overwhelmed. Incompatible. #Quote by Bianca Scardoni
Identity quotes by M. Scott Peck
#189. Specifically, one whose life is ruled and dictated by dependency needs suffers from a psychiatric disorder to which we ascribe the diagnostic name "passive dependent personality disorder." It is perhaps the most common of all psychiatric disorders.
People with this disorder, passive dependent people, are so busy seeking to be loved that they have no energy left to love. They are like starving people, scrounging wherever they can for food, and with no food of their own to give to others. It is as if within them they have an inner emptiness, a bottomless pit crying out to be filled but which can never be completely filled. They never feel "full-filled" or have a sense of completeness. They always feel "a part of me is missing." They tolerate loneliness very poorly. Because of their lack of wholeness they have no real sense of identity, and they define themselves solely by their relationships. #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Identity quotes by Prageeta Sharma
#190. The fragility of the intellectual is the same as the poet's:
It's all about the I and its desperate sense of the we. #Quote by Prageeta Sharma
Identity quotes by Akshay Vasu
#191. You are the stories and incidents that you never tell to anyone. You are the thoughts that you get while standing under the
shower. You are those memories that won't lets you sleep at night peacefully. You are those words that you will never say while
speaking with someone. You are those scars that you always hide from everyone. You are those little secrets that you will never let the world know. You are everything that you hide under the identity that you call the real you. #Quote by Akshay Vasu
Identity quotes by Harper Lee
#192. Honey, the sun rises and sets with that Bill of hers. Everything he says is Gospel. She loves her man."
"Is that what loving your man is?"
"Has a lot to do with it."
Jean Louise said, "You mean losing your own identity, don't you?"
"In a way, yes," said Henry.
"Then I doubt if I shall ever marry. #Quote by Harper Lee
Identity quotes by Frank Abagnale
#193. If you happen to tell me where you were born, your date of birth and that kind of information, then I'm 98 percent of the way to stealing your identity. #Quote by Frank Abagnale
Identity quotes by Mary McCarthy
#194. Labor is work that leaves no trace behind it when it is finished, or if it does, as in the case of the tilled field, this product of human activity requires still more labor, incessant, tireless labor, to maintain its identity as a 'work' of man. #Quote by Mary McCarthy
Identity quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#195. Humility is the greatest shaper of souls and crafter of character, for it wipes away all the grandiose things that we spend so much of our lives pretending to be, so that we can spend all of our lives being the exceptional person that we were actually created to be. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Identity quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#196. I am not made like any of those I have seen. I venture to believe that I am not made like any of those who are in existence. If I am not better, at least I am different. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Identity quotes by Tracy Alderman
#197. It's one thing to have your partner tell you he or she has multiple personalities, and it's another to walk in on your partner and find him or her sitting on the bedroom floor, speaking in a child like voice, having a tea party with stuffed animals. #Quote by Tracy Alderman
Identity quotes by Sylvia Plath
#198. Winning or losing an argument, receiving an acceptance or rejection, is no proof of the validity or value of personal identity. One may be wrong, mistaken, or a poor craftsman, or just ignorant - but this is no indication of the true worth of one's total human identity: past, present and future! #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Identity quotes by Graham Greene
#199. The sense of unhappiness is so much easier to convey than that of happiness. In misery we seem aware of our own existence, even though it may be in the form of a monstrous egotism: this pain of mine is individual, this nerve that winces belongs to me and to no other. But happiness annihilates us: we lose our identity. #Quote by Graham Greene
Identity quotes by Paul F. Dell
#200. When treating their first few DID cases, therapists typically focus too much attention on the alters. This focus tends to distract from what is fundamental–the patients' pervasive dissociative/posttraumatic distress and maladaptation. Has something similar occurred in psychiatry's view of DID? Have the compelling phenomena of alters distracted us from the matrix of dissociative and posttraumatic symptoms in which alters are embedded?
- Dell, P. F. (2001). Why the Diagnostic Criteria for Dissociative Identity Disorder Should Be Changed, Journal of Trauma and Dissociation, 2 (1). #Quote by Paul F. Dell
