Innocent quotes by Harlan Coben
#1. I'm not sure we should get camera phones, that's all."
She hit the remote and the car doors unlocked. She reached for the door handle. Matt hesitated.
Olivia looked at him.
"What?" he asked.
"If we both get camera phones," Olivia said, "I could send you nuddies when you're at work."
Matt opened the door. "Verizon on Sprint?"
from The Innocent #Quote by Harlan Coben
Innocent quotes by Fred Hammond
#2. It's easier to keep your stuff then it is to expose it, because some people don't get it. At the cross, at the feet of Jesus, there were some people who said, "Good! I'm glad that you're dead." Then there were some that were crying and saying, "Why are you doing this to this innocent man?" It is not easy to do. #Quote by Fred Hammond
Innocent quotes by Marcus L. Lukusa
#3. There's no blade sharper than the truth under the Sun, it's enlightens the mind, releases the captives, condemns the guilty and spares the innocent; it's the only weapon a hero ever needs to fight a war, the one which is conducted without a need of any Iron blade! #Quote by Marcus L. Lukusa
Innocent quotes by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
#4. Not knowing what to do with your life is a painful thing. #Quote by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
Innocent quotes by Rajneesh
#5. The child is naturally meditative. He is a sort of samadhi; he's coming out of the womb of existence. His life river is yset absolutely fresh, just from the source. He knows the truth, but he does not know that he knows ... His knowledge is not yet aware. It is innocent. It is simply there, as a matter of fact. And he is not separate from his knowledge; he is his knowledge. He has not mind, he has simple being. #Quote by Rajneesh
Innocent quotes by David Frum
#6. What is spreading today is repressive kleptocracy, led by rulers motivated by greed rather than by the deranged idealism of Hitler or Stalin or Mao. Such rulers rely less on terror and more on rule twisting, the manipulation of information, and the co-option of elites. Their goal is self-enrichment; the corrosion of the rule of law is the necessary means. As a shrewd local observer explained to me on a visit to Hungary in early 2016, "The main benefit of controlling a modern bureaucratic state is not the power to persecute the innocent. It is the power to protect the guilty."
No president in history has burned more public money to sustain his personal lifestyle than Donald Trump. Three-quarters of the way through his first year in office, President Trump was on track to spend more on travel in one year of his presidency than Barack Obama in eight - even though Trump only rarely ventured west of the Mississippi or across any ocean. #Quote by David Frum
Innocent quotes by L.J. Shen
#7. Wretchedly gorgeous. Wickedly innocent. Irrevocably mine. Our hearts were tarnished. Stained. And guilty.
Unpredictable to a fault.
And bound to break. #Quote by L.J. Shen
Innocent quotes by Richard Corliss
#8. Innocent parents might have thought that a musical cartoon version of a fairy tale would be a child's ideal introduction to movie magic. Yet Walt Disney taught moral lessons in the most useful way: by scaring the poop out of the little ones. #Quote by Richard Corliss
Innocent quotes by Roy Blount, Jr.
#9. An author is a person who can never take innocent pleasure in visiting a bookstore again. Say you go in and discover that there are no copies of your book on the shelves. You resent all the other books - I don't care if they are Great Expectations, Life on the Mississippi and the King James Bible that are on the shelves. #Quote by Roy Blount, Jr.
Innocent quotes by Doc Hastings
#10. We know we must win the war on terror to protect innocent people and the freedoms that define our way of life. #Quote by Doc Hastings
Innocent quotes by Douglas Adams
#11. Believe me, it is a great deal better to find cast-iron proof that you're innocent than to languish in a cell hoping that the police
who already think you're guilty
will find it for you. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Innocent quotes by Charles Bukowski
#12. It began when they come took me from my home
And put me in Dead Row,
Of which I am nearly wholly innocent, you know.
And I'll say it again
I..am..not..afraid..to..die.

And the mercy seat is waiting
And I think my head is burning
And in a way I'm yearning
To be done with all this measuring of truth.
An eye for an eye
A tooth for a tooth
And anyway I told the truth
And I'm not afraid to die.

And the mercy seat is burning
And I think my head is glowing
And in a way I'm hoping
To be done with all this weighing up of truth.
An eye for an eye
And a tooth for a tooth
And I've got nothing left to lose
And I'm not afraid to die.

And the mercy seat is glowing
And I think my head is smoking
And in a way I'm hoping
To be done with all this looks of disbelief.
An eye for an eye
And a tooth for a tooth
And anyway there was no proof
Nor a motive why.

And the mercy seat is waiting
And I think my head is burning
And in a way I'm yearning
To be done with all this measuring of truth.
An eye for an eye
And a truth for a truth
And anyway I told the truth
But I'm afraid I told a lie. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Innocent quotes by Charles Dickens
#13. All the air round was so thick and dark, the people were so passionately revengeful and fitful, the innocent were so constantly put to death on vague suspicion and black malice, it was so impossible to forget that many as blameless as her husband and as dear to others as he was to her, every day shared the fate from which he had been clutched, that her heart could not be as lightened of its load as she felt it ought to be. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Innocent quotes by Pope Innocent III
#14. Every cleric must obey the Pope, even if he commands what is evil; for no one may judge the Pope. #Quote by Pope Innocent III
Innocent quotes by Elizabeth Taylor
#15. Marilyn Monroe seemed to have a kind of unconscious glow about her physical self that was innocent, like a child. When she posed nude, it was 'Gee, I am kind of, you know, sort of dishy,' like she enjoyed it without being egotistical. #Quote by Elizabeth Taylor
Innocent quotes by Iris Murdoch
#16. Today there is a pleasant very light haze over the whole sky, and the sea has a misleadingly docile silvered look, as if the substantial wavelets were determined to stroke the rocks as hard as they could without showing any trace of foam. It is a compact radiant complacent sort of sea, very beautiful. There ought to be seals, the waves themselves are almost seals today, but still I scan the water in vain with my long-distance glasses. Enormous yellow-beaked gulls perch on the rocks and stare at me with brilliant glass eyes. A shadow-cormorant skims the glycerine sea. The rocks are thronged with butterflies. The temperature remains high. I wash my clothes and dry them on the lawn. I have been swimming every day
and feel very fit and salty. Still no move from Lizzie, but I am not worried. I feel happy in my silence. If the gods have some treat in store for Lizzie and me, good. If not, also good. I feel innocent and free. Perhaps it is all that swimming. #Quote by Iris Murdoch
Innocent quotes by Kate Evangelista
#17. Protect that girl, Balthazar. She is an innocent in all of this."
"Why does she want Nikolas to gain his humanity?"
"She believes they are in love."
The absurdity of D's words hit Balthazar square in the gut. He would have doubled over if he didn't find the reason pathetic. Thankfully, he managed to keep the laughter in his head.
"Love? Nikolas? #Quote by Kate Evangelista
Innocent quotes by Anonymous
#18. Do everything without complaining and arguing, 15 so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people. 16 Hold firmly to the word of life; then, on the day of Christ's return, I will be proud that I did not run the race in vain and that my work was not useless. #Quote by Anonymous
Innocent quotes by Jack Kerouac
#19. I had traveled eight thousand miles around the American continent and I was back on Times Square; and right in the middle of a rush hour, too, seeing with my innocent road-eyes the absolute madness and fantastic hoorair of New York with its millions and millions hustling forever for a buck among themselves, the mad dream-grabbing, taking, giving, sighing, dying, just so they could be buried in those awful cemetery cities beyond Long Island City. #Quote by Jack Kerouac
Innocent quotes by Danny Boyle
#20. The great thing with film is that it doesn't have an ego. It's just a film. Everybody that makes them has an ego, and the problem with awards and stuff like that is that it always affects the egos, and everyone gets stained by it in some way. And that can be fine and very innocent, but it can be horrible as well. #Quote by Danny Boyle
Innocent quotes by Richard Castle
#21. I wish the choice I have to make today was so simple. I realise I have the choice to believe in two terrible things. Either Damian is a murderer or Beckett arrested an innocent man.
Just thinking about it is making my head hurt.
Well then forget your head, listen to your heart. #Quote by Richard Castle
Innocent quotes by Laura Thalassa
#22. For time corrupts even the most innocent #Quote by Laura Thalassa
Innocent quotes by Kahlen Aymes
#23. But i do love her more. She's amazing. Innocent, yes, but so damn passionate. It's like we're one person and we instinctively know what the other needs. The love she has for me seeps right into my skin whenever she touches me, Aaron. It's that intense. Being with her was like nothing i've ever experienced in my life. #Quote by Kahlen Aymes
Innocent quotes by Sebastian Junger
#24. The story about Bessie Goldberg that I heard from my parents was that a nice old lady had been killed down the street and an innocent black man went to prison for the crime. Meanwhile
unknown to anyone
a violent psychopath named Al was working alone at our house all day and probably committed the murder. In our family this story eventually acquired the tidy symbolism of a folk tale. Roy Smith was a stand-in for everything that was decent but utterly defenseless. Albert DeSalvo, of course, was a stand-in for pure random evil. #Quote by Sebastian Junger
Innocent quotes by Stephen King
#25. The trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool. #Quote by Stephen King
Innocent quotes by George R R Martin
#26. I did not do it. Yet now I wish I had.' He turned to face the hall, that sea of pale faces. 'I wish I had enough poison for you all. You make me sorry that I am not the monster you would have me be, yet there it is. I am innocent, but I will get no justice here. #Quote by George R R Martin
Innocent quotes by Georgette Heyer
#27. Mrs Grayshott was no tattle-monger; and since she had a great deal of reserve Abby knew that only a stringent sense of duty could have forced her to overcome her distaste of talebearing. What she knew, either from her own observation, or from the innocent disclosures of her daughter, she plainly thought to be too serious to be withheld from Fanny's aunt. At the same time, thought Abigail, dispassionately considering her, the well-bred calm of her manners concealed an over-anxious disposition, which led her to magnify possible dangers. #Quote by Georgette Heyer
Innocent quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#28. You are innocent in your heart," she had said to him. "That is the most important thing." And he had thought about that for a few moments before shaking his head and saying, "I would like that to be true, Mma, but it is not. It is what other people think. That is the most important thing. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Innocent quotes by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
#29. ... love life and live or exist to just survive. #Quote by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
Innocent quotes by Cat Stevens
#30. Violence is almost an everyday occurrence in some Muslim lands: it should not be exacerbated by revenge attacks on more innocent families and communities. #Quote by Cat Stevens
Innocent quotes by Samuel R. Delany
#31. Those moments when we learn that mothers rage and fathers kill, that friends betray and authority is fallible, or that our own blank, innocent ignorance can destroy the pure, the good, and the loved are moments the very memory of which constitutes the beginning of a strategy to live in a world where such horrors exist. #Quote by Samuel R. Delany
Innocent quotes by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
#32. Freedom is something that all pursue, and though you might not see it, people will risk a lot to have it. #Quote by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
Innocent quotes by Terry Eagleton
#33. In a world in which everything bears the indelible impress of Man, it is refreshing to escape from time to time from this wall-to-wall humanisation. Hence the American enthusiasm for national parks and outdoor activities. It is seductive to see the world as though we were not there to see it. We can always dream of perceiving things as they are in themselves, without the buzz and distortion of human meaning. We can take a vacation now and then from the intolerable burden of sense-making, rather as we do when we treat human flesh as something to be mindlessly indulged. We can shuck off language and confront reality in the raw, as we imagine an innocent child might do. #Quote by Terry Eagleton
Innocent quotes by Shelly Crane
#34. And you, trying to look all innocent walking in here. You're a real conch at this, aren't ya?"
"Did you just insult me, Miguel?" Sherry asked, putting her hands on her hips but she looked on the verge of laughing.
"No, love, it means smart." He grinned at her. #Quote by Shelly Crane
Innocent quotes by E. Everett Evans
#35. They walked gingerly across the junk-filled vacant lots to the local abattoir - a place of infinite fascination, with its strange sights and stranger smells.
It was a thrill - because it outraged their every sense of animal love - to watch the killings. To see calm, innocent cattle led one by one into that room with the fetid smells and the stained, concrete floor always a'swish with running water. To see brawny, heavy-set Gus Milner and his equally big son, Charley, slip the snubbing rope through the ring in the cow's nose, and relentlessly draw its head down and down until its nose touched the heavy ring set in the floor, then fasten it.
Their hearts did strange nip-ups just back of their mouths as one of the men would pick up the heavy sledge, and with one great, perfectly aimed blow, strike the animal just between and a bit above the eyes. They always jumped at the sudden slump as the carcass dropped, spraddled and lifeless, to the floor.
("The Shed") #Quote by E. Everett Evans
Innocent quotes by J.K. Rowling
#36. There are those who'll turn innocent occasions to their advantage. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Innocent quotes by Laurell K. Hamilton
#37. Patting someone's hand, or shoulder, a hug, all of it is necessary to be happy and healthy for most people. It doesn't have to have anything to do with sex; in fact, most of the touch that keeps us all going is as innocent as a newborn lamb frolicking on the spring grass, #Quote by Laurell K. Hamilton
Innocent quotes by John Bunyan
#38. Pharisee, God hath appointed, that by the righteousness of his Son, and by that righteousness only, men shall be justified in his sight from the curse of the law. Wherefore, take heed, and at thy peril, whatever thy righteousness is, confront not the righteousness of Christ therewith. I say, bring it not in, let it not plead for thee at the bar of God, nor do thou plead for that in his court of justice; for thou canst not do this and be innocent. #Quote by John Bunyan
Innocent quotes by J.G. Ballard
#39. Writing a novel is one of those modern rites of passage, I think, that lead us from an innocent world of contentment, drunkenness, and good humor, to a state of chronic edginess and the perpetual scanning of bank statements. #Quote by J.G. Ballard
Innocent quotes by Horace
#40. God has joined the innocent with the guilty. #Quote by Horace
Innocent quotes by Mia Farrow
#41. There are people who are suffering beyond description. They are innocent people, they didn't bring this upon themselves. They are the victims of the sins of other people. And while it's hard to see, it's important to understand that these people exist. #Quote by Mia Farrow
Innocent quotes by Osama Bin Laden
#42. We are in favour of armed jihad only against those infidel countries, which are killing innocent Muslim men, women, and children just because they are Muslims. Supporting the US act is the need of some Muslim countries and the compulsion of others. However, they should think as to what will remain of their religious and moral position if they support the attack of the Christians and the Jews on a Muslim country like Afghanistan. #Quote by Osama Bin Laden
Innocent quotes by James Bobin
#43. It doesn't matter if you're good at anything, just try your best. Then there's the idea that individually they're flawed but together they can do amazing things. I think that's a very nice message and it's not something you hit people over the head with. It just comes with The Muppets; it's what they're about. It's that kind of innocent try, try, try quality. And it also makes them underdogs. You can't help but support the underdog. #Quote by James Bobin
Innocent quotes by Bradley Sands
#44. Sometimes the good guy rips out innocent people's throats. That's just something the world need to live with if it wants the good guy to keep saving the day. #Quote by Bradley Sands
Innocent quotes by Maria V. Snyder
#45. He made a weak attempt to look innocent, but I knew better. 'Should I guess how many concealed weapons you have or should I strip search you?'
'A strip search is the only way to be absolutely certain.' Valek's deep blue eyes danced with delight. #Quote by Maria V. Snyder
Innocent quotes by Victor Hugo
#46. The child watched its disappearance--he was astounded but dreamy. His stupefaction was complicated by a sense of the dark reality of existence. It seemed as if there were experience in this dawning being. Did he, perchance, already exercise judgment? Experience coming too early constructs, sometimes, in the obscure depths of a child's mind, some dangerous balance--we know not what--in which the poor little soul weighs God.

Feeling himself innocent, he yielded. There was no complaint-THE IRREPROACHABLE DOES NOT REPROACH.
(The Man Who Laughs) #Quote by Victor Hugo
Innocent quotes by Yevgeny Zamyatin
#47. Paradise,' he began, and the p meant a spray. 'The old legend about Paradise - that was about us, about right now. Yes! Just think about it. Those two in Paradise, they were offered a choice: happiness without freedom, or freedom without happiness, nothing else. Those idiots chose freedom. And then what? Then for centuries they were homesick for the chains. That's why the world was so miserable, see? They missed the chains. For ages! And we were the first to hit on the way to get back to happiness. No, wait ... listen to me. The ancient God and us, side by side, at the same table. Yes! We helped God finally overcome the Devil - because that's who it was that pushed people to break the commandment and taste freedom and be ruined. It was him, the wily serpent. But we gave him a boot to the head! Crack! And it was all over: Paradise was back. And we're simple and innocent again, like Adam and Eve. None of those complications about good and evil: Everything is very simple, childishly simple - Paradise! The Benefactor, the Machine, the Cube, the Gas Bell, the Guardians: All those things represent good, all that is sublime, splendid, noble, elevated, crystal pure. Because that is what protects our nonfreedom, which is to say, our happiness. #Quote by Yevgeny Zamyatin
Innocent quotes by Robert J. Wiersema
#48. Tim looked my way again. "And how to you think you will be judged, on the day the trumpet sounds? You who have caused so much pain, so many deaths."
"I have been true to Him. I have stood up for His name when all around me
"
"For His name," Tim said. "But what of what He taught? What of the innocents you have killed in His name?"
"I've only known one miraculous innocent," Father Peter said.
"And you've spent your lifetimes trying to atone for your betrayal, to protect his memory. A memory that doesn't need your protection."
"You're not going to change my mind."
"I know," Tim said. His voice was sad. #Quote by Robert J. Wiersema
Innocent quotes by James Lane Allen
#49. The truth in you remains as radiant as a star, as pure as light, as innocent as love itself. #Quote by James Lane Allen
Innocent quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#50. The innocent should never have to suffer from the battles of others. (Valerius) I know, but it seems to always be the case. (Acheron) A furore infra, libera nos - spare us from the fury within. (Valerius) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Innocent quotes by Katherine Applegate
#51. Someday, if we won, if humanity survived, we'd be in the history books. Me and Jake and Rachel and Cassie and Tobias and Ax. They'd be household names, like generals from World War II or the Civil War. Patton and Eisenhower, Ulysses Grant and Robert E. Lee. Kids would study us in school. Bored, probably.
And then the teacher would tell the story of Marco. I'd be a part of history. What I was about to do. Some kid would laugh. Some kid would say, "Cold, man. That was really cold."
I had to do it, kid. It was a war. It's the whole point, you stupid, smug, smirking little jerk! Don't you get it?
It was the whole point. We hurt the innocent in order to stop the evil. Innocent Hork-Bajir. Innocent Taxxons. Innocent human-Controllers. How else to stop the Yeerks? How else to win?
No choice, you punk. We did what we had to do.
"Cold, man. The Marco dude? He was just cold. #Quote by Katherine Applegate
Innocent quotes by Terry Pratchett
#52. Personally, I treasure my ignorance of how machinery works, although I am well aware that this is something of great interest to some people, he added, in a tone of voice that suggested he meant strange and secret people ... busy people, excitable people, fiddling people, tinkering and volatile people. A kind, alas, who would say something as innocent as, let's give it a try, it can't hurt, surely? We can always hide under the coffee table. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Innocent quotes by Malcolm X
#53. The media's the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of the masses. #Quote by Malcolm X
Innocent quotes by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
#54. I'm alive now, but I don't know if I will be tomorrow. The state of being alive is not guaranteed, but should I let that stop me from living? #Quote by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
Innocent quotes by Linda Kage
#55. You're quirky ... and yet conventional. Innocent but worldly. Reserved yet outgoing. Candid yet guarded. Trendy but also practical. And childlike while still managing to be mature. It's like ... you're the perfect contradiction. #Quote by Linda Kage
Innocent quotes by Emily Thorne
#56. When everything you love has been stolen from you, sometimes all you have left is revenge.Sometimes, the innocent get hurt. But one by one, the guilty will pay. Nothing ever goes exactly as you expect. And mistakes are life and death. Collateral damage is inescapable. #Quote by Emily Thorne
Innocent quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#57. Let these innocent people be careful not to invest in corporations where those in control are not men of probity, men who respect the laws; above all let them avoid the men who make it their one effort to evade or defy the laws. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Innocent quotes by Girdhar Joshi
#58. When two people are on the path of confrontation…an innocuous comment is taken as an accusation. And an innocent query is suspected as an accusation. #Quote by Girdhar Joshi
Innocent quotes by Josh Waitzkin
#59. This might sound like a dream for a seventeen-year-old boy, and I won't deny enjoying the attention, but professionally it was a nightmare. My game began to unravel. I caught myself thinking about how I looked thinking instead of losing myself in thought. The Grandmasters, my elders, were ignored and scowled at me. Some of them treated me like a pariah. I had won eight national championships and had more fans, public support and recognition than I could dream of, but none of this was helping my search for excellence, let alone for happiness. At a young age I came to know that there is something profoundly hollow about the nature of fame. I had spent my life devoted to artistic growth and was used to the sweaty-palmed sense of contentment one gets after many hours of intense reflection. This peaceful feeling had nothing to do with external adulation, and I yearned for a return to that innocent, fertile time. I missed just being a student of the game, #Quote by Josh Waitzkin
Innocent quotes by John Irving
#60. Every study of the gods, of everyone's gods, is a revelation of vengeance towards the innocent. #Quote by John Irving
Innocent quotes by Margaret Atwood
#61. Sometimes when I am dusting the mirror with the grapes I look at myself in it, although I know it is vanity. In the afternoon light of the parlour my skin is a pale mauve, like a faded bruise, and my teeth are greenish. I think of all the things that have been written about me - that I am inhuman female demon, that I am an innocent victim of a blackguard forced against my will and in danger of my own life, that I was too ignorant to know how to act and that to hang me would be judicial murder, that I am fond of animals, that I am very handsome with a brilliant complexion, that I have blue eyes, that I have green eyes, that I have auburn and also have brown hair, that I am tall and also not above the average height, that I am well and decently dressed, that I robbed a dead woman to appear so, that I am brisk and smart about my work, that I am of a sullen disposition with a quarrelsome temper, that I have the appearance of a person rather above my humble station, that I am a good girl with a pliable nature and no harm is told of me, that I am cunning and devious, that I am soft in the head and little better than an idiot. And I wonder, how can I be all of these different things at once? #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Innocent quotes by James McGreevey
#62. As I climbed the electoral ladder - from state assemblyman to mayor of Woodbridge and finally to governor of New Jersey - political compromises came easy to me because I'd learned how to keep a part of myself innocent of them. #Quote by James McGreevey
Innocent quotes by Michael Ennis
#63. Where war goes on without end, all men are inevitably corrupted by its brutality
and the worst horrors are visited upon the most innocent. #Quote by Michael Ennis
Innocent quotes by Sanober Khan
#64. I am a baby, I am a child, I am the innocent wonder in my eyes

I am a glimpse, I am a sign, of someone I can be, someone I might

I am not one, I am not two, but I am a million things entwined

I am a piece, I am a slice, strung together by the yarns of time. #Quote by Sanober Khan
Innocent quotes by George Eliot
#65. Ingenious philosophers tell you, perhaps, that the great work of the steam-engine is to create leisure for mankind. Do not believe them: it only creates a vacuum for eager thought to rush in. Even idleness is eager now - eager for amusement; prone to excursion-trains, art museums, periodical literature, and exciting novels; prone even to scientific theorizing and cursory peeps through microscopes. Old Leisure was quite a different personage. He only read one newspaper, innocent of leaders, and was free from that periodicity of sensations which we call post-time. He was a contemplative, rather stout gentleman, of excellent digestion; of quiet perceptions, undiseased by hypothesis; happy in his inability to know the causes of things, preferring the things themselves. He lived chiefly in the country, among pleasant seats and homesteads, and was fond of sauntering by the fruit-tree wall and scenting the apricots when they were warmed by the morning sunshine, or of sheltering himself under the orchard boughs at noon, when the summer pears were falling. He knew nothing of weekday services, and thought none the worse of the Sunday sermon if it allowed him to sleep from the text to the blessing; liking the afternoon service best, because the prayers were the shortest, and not ashamed to say so; for he had an easy, jolly conscience, broad-backed like himself, and able to carry a great deal of beer or port-wine, not being made squeamish by doubts and qualms and lofty aspirations. #Quote by George Eliot
Innocent quotes by Raine Miller
#66. I know, sweetie. But I've seen you with him. I've seen how he looks at you. Maybe this is the big one. You won't know unless you try." She touched my face. "I'm happy for you, and I think you've got to go with a little leap of faith here. So far Mr. Blackstone is on my good list. If that should change or if he hurts one smooth hair on your innocent head, then his pretty-boy balls are gonna be transformed into a set of Klik-Klaks. And please tell him I said that. #Quote by Raine Miller
Innocent quotes by Mackenzi Lee
#67. I have become a veritable scholar in seemingly innocent ploys to get his skin against mine. #Quote by Mackenzi Lee
Innocent quotes by Richard Steele
#68. Nothing is more silly than the pleasure some people take in "speaking their minds." A man of this make will say a rude thing for the mere pleasure of saying it, when an opposite behavior, full as innocent, might have preserved his friend, or made his fortune. #Quote by Richard Steele
Innocent quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#69. Kami's soul shriveled slightly at the idea of taking romantic action in front of her father, but she was determined to determine this relationship, so she left the doorway and walked over to where Jared was sitting. When he lifted his face to look up at her, she leaned down and kissed him.

"Hi there, dream canoe," she said. She got hold of his arm and sat on his lap, drawing his arm around her - which he allowed, although she supposed the lack of resistance could mean he was in shock - so she had her back to whatever expression he made.

Sadly, she could still see the expression her father was making.

"Do you have any tattoos?" Dad asked Jared suspiciously.

"No!" said Jared, and added hastily, "Sir."

Her father looked like he had further questions for Jared, and Kami did not have high hopes about the answers - history of violence, check; poor academics, check; leather jacket, check; motorcycle, check; despoiling his innocent daughter, no check but not for lack of trying #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
Innocent quotes by Adyashanti
#70. Enlightenment is the natural state of consciousness, the innocent state of consciousness, that state which is uncontaminated by the movement of thought, uncontaminated by control or manipulation of mind. #Quote by Adyashanti
Innocent quotes by Libba Bray
#71. Perhaps this is how girls fall
not in some crime of enchantment at the hands of a wicked ne'er-do-well, a grand before and after in which they are innocent victims who have no say in the matter. Perhaps they simply are kissed and want to kiss back. Perhaps they even kiss first. And why should they not? #Quote by Libba Bray
Innocent quotes by Luca Turin
#72. Until proven innocent, I regard all "gardenias" as I do footprints of the Snowman, engines that run on vacuum energy, or good wines from Savoie. #Quote by Luca Turin
Innocent quotes by Douglas Sirk
#73. Your characters have to remain innocent of what your picture is after. #Quote by Douglas Sirk
Innocent quotes by Mary Shelley
#74. Seek happiness in tranquility and avoid ambition even if it be only the apparently innocent one of distinguishing yourself in science and discoveries. #Quote by Mary Shelley
Innocent quotes by Nikolas Schreck
#75. And eventually, he (Charles Manson) testified to an empty court, as Bugliosi had convinced the presiding judge Older, that Manson's hypnotic powers might convince the jury he was innocent. #Quote by Nikolas Schreck
Innocent quotes by Portia De Rossi
#76. It's always fun to play the innocent, no matter what you're doing. If you feel like you're doing the right thing, you can get away with a lot comedically. I had definitely missed not having a conscience. #Quote by Portia De Rossi
Innocent quotes by Studs Terkel
#77. Having been blacklisted from working in television during the McCarthy era, I know the harm of government using private corporations to intrude into the lives of innocent Americans. When government uses the telephone companies to create massive databases of all our phone calls it has gone too far. #Quote by Studs Terkel
Innocent quotes by Sean Penn
#78. Sacrificing American soldiers or innocent civilians in an unprecedented preemptive attack on a separate sovereign nation may well prove itself a most temporary medicine. #Quote by Sean Penn
Innocent quotes by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
#79. Thoughts can be such slippery things sometimes,
Very hard to handle.
But to a well-trained mind,
They are easy to bind #Quote by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
Innocent quotes by Martin Bashir
#80. If you listen carefully to Rick Santorum, he sounds more like Stalin than Pope Innocent III. #Quote by Martin Bashir
Innocent quotes by Elie Wiesel
#81. Never again becomes more than a slogan: It's a prayer, a promise, a vow. There will never again be hatred, people say. Never again jail and torture. Never again the suffering of innocent people, or the shooting of starving, frightened, terrified children. And never again the glorification of base, ugly, dark violence. It's a prayer. #Quote by Elie Wiesel
Innocent quotes by Blaise Pascal
#82. 11 All great amusements are dangerous to the Christian life; but among all those which the world has invented there is none more to be feared than the theatre. It is a representation of the passions so natural and so delicate that it excites them and gives birth to them in our hearts, and, above all, to that of love, principally when it is represented as very chaste and virtuous. For the more innocent it appears to innocent souls, the more they are likely to be touched by it. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Innocent quotes by Suzy Kassem
#83. Killing in the name of religion defines someone who is ignorant and actually void of religion. God does not condone terror. To kill innocent people to make a political statement is like shooting a dove to say hunting is wrong. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Innocent quotes by Queen Noor Of Jordan
#84. The killing of innocent people is a sin. #Quote by Queen Noor Of Jordan
Innocent quotes by David S. Reynolds
#85. Never trust the innocent #Quote by David S. Reynolds
Innocent quotes by Chil Rajchman
#86. I become almost wild and shout at them: - To whom are you reciting Kaddish? Do you still believe? And what do you believe, whom are you thinking? Are you thanking the Lord for his mercy and taking away our brothers and sisters, our fathers and mothers? No, no! It is not true; there is no God. If there were a God, he would not allow such misfortune, such transgression, where innocent small children, only just born, or killed, by people who want only to to honest work and make themselves useful to the world are killed! and you, living witnesses of the great misfortune, remain thankful. Whom are you thanking? #Quote by Chil Rajchman
Innocent quotes by John Ray
#87. There is no doubt, that man is not built to be a carnivorous animal. What a sweet, pleasing and innocent sight is the spectacle of a table served that way and what a difference to a make up of fuming animal meat, slaughtered and dead! Man in no way has the constitution of a carnivorous being. Hunt and voracity are unnatural to him. Man has neither the sharp pointed teeth or claws to slaughter his prey. On the contrary his hands are made to pick fruits, berries and vegetables and teeth appropriate to chew them. #Quote by John Ray
Innocent quotes by John Ruskin
#88. A nation which lives a pastoral and innocent life never decorates the shepherd's staff or the plough-handle; but races who live by depredation and slaughter nearly always bestow exquisite ornaments on the quiver, the helmet, and the spear. #Quote by John Ruskin
Innocent quotes by Barry White
#89. The cops picked me up for attempted murder. I can still see the detectives, licking their chops. Thought they had me. Two weeks later, the cat came out of a coma and told the truth. I was innocent. #Quote by Barry White
Innocent quotes by Jayne Castle
#90. When fully fluffed they looked like oversized wads of dryer lint with six little paws and two big, innocent blue eyes. #Quote by Jayne Castle
Innocent quotes by Louis Ferdinand Celine
#91. The religion of the flag promptly replaced the cult of heaven, an old cloud which had already been deflated by the Reformation and reduced to a network of episcopal money boxes. In olden times the fanatical fashion was: 'Long live Jesus! Burn the heretics!' . . . But heretics, after all, were few and voluntary . . . Whereas today vast hordes of men are fired with aim and purpose by cries of 'Hang the limp turnips! The juiceless lemons! The innocent readers! By the millions, eyes right!' If anybody doesn't want to fight or murder, grab 'em, tear 'em to pieces! Kill them in thirteen juicy ways. For a starter, to teach them how to live, rip their guts out of their bodies, their eyes out of their sockets, and the years out of their filthy slobbering lives! #Quote by Louis Ferdinand Celine
Innocent quotes by Stephen King
#92. As W.H. Auden pointed out, the Reaper takes the rolling in money, the screamingly funny, and those who are very well hung. But that isn't where Auden starts his list. He starts with the innocent young. #Quote by Stephen King
Innocent quotes by Vasant Lad
#93. The heart is a gate-less gate to divinity. Move to the heart. We are all hung up, stuck in the head - that is our problem. The only problem is that we think too much. There is only one solution - get down from the head to the heart. All your problems will disappear. Problems are created by the head. The heart is innocent. The heart is a fountain of love. #Quote by Vasant Lad
Innocent quotes by Matthew Norman
#94. There's a line in one of my dad's novels about the most beautiful parts of the female anatomy being the ones that are the most innocent - the ones that have never been scandalized by nudity. #Quote by Matthew Norman
Innocent quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#95. Don't make too many waves until you're ready to strike. Don't appear too innocent, but don't appear too smart either. Be average. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Innocent quotes by Phil Stern
#96. I've come to realize we're all two different people. Our younger, innocent self that's inevitably mangled along the highway of life, and our tougher adult personal that evolves from the wreckage. #Quote by Phil Stern
Innocent quotes by Kevin Hearne
#97. And the Morrigan, I noted, had been right about thrice-cursed trickster gods. They were torrential fucksluices spraying their happy juices on the innocent and the damned alike. #Quote by Kevin Hearne
Innocent quotes by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
#98. The whole point in moving forward is to leave things behind. Once you look back, you stop moving forward. Understanding this makes you move on easier. #Quote by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
Innocent quotes by Innocent III
#99. Oh! The vile indignity of the human condition! Oh! The undeserving condition of the human cowardice! Go and inquire the grass and the trees. They from themselves produce flowers, leaves and fruits; you from yourself, you produce nits, lice, and worms. They from themselves produce oil, wine, and balm; you from yourself send out mucous, urine, and dung. They from themselves send out the fragrance of sweetness; and you make of yourself an abomination of stench!"
Lothar of Segni, future Innocent III
quoted by Eugenio Garin in his History of Italian Philosophy #Quote by Innocent III
Innocent quotes by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
#100. In life, most decisions are a case of let go to get. #Quote by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
Innocent quotes by Tom Rob Smith
#101. - When the police are criminals, the criminals must become the police. The innocent must live underground, in the shit of the city, while the villains live in warm apartments. The world is upside down: I'm merely turning it the right way up. #Quote by Tom Rob Smith
Innocent quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#102. At any innocent tea-table we may easily hear a man say, "Life is not worth living." We regard it as we regard the statement that it is a fine day; nobody thinks that it can possibly have any serious effect on the man or on the world. And yet if that utterance were really believed, the world would stand on its head. Murderers would be given medals for saving men from life; firemen would be denounced for keeping men from death; poisons would be used as medicines; doctors would be called in when people were well; the Royal Humane Society would be rooted out like a horde of assassins. Yet we never speculate as to whether the conversational pessimist will strengthen or disorganize society; for we are convinced that theories do not matter. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Innocent quotes by Philip Pullman
#103. It comes from history. It comes from the record of the Inquisition, persecuting heretics and torturing Jews and all that sort of stuff; and it comes from the other side, too, from the Protestants burning the Catholics. It comes from the insensate pursuit of innocent and crazy old women, and from the Puritans in America burning and hanging the witches - and it comes not only from the Christian church but also from the Taliban. Every single religion that has a monotheistic god ends up by persecuting other people and killing them because they don't accept him. Wherever you look in history, you find that. It's still going on. #Quote by Philip Pullman
Innocent quotes by Charles Baudelaire
#104. What strange phenomena we find in a great city, all we need do is stroll about with our eyes open. Life swarms with innocent monsters. #Quote by Charles Baudelaire
Innocent quotes by Richard LaGravenese
#105. The death penalty issue is obviously a divisive one. But whether one is for or against, you can not deny the basic illogic - if we know the system is flawed, if we know there are innocent people on Death Row, then until the system is reformed, should we not abandon the death penalty to protect those who are innocent? #Quote by Richard LaGravenese
Innocent quotes by Terry McMillan
#106. I used to get a lot of letters from prisoners. It used to get on my nerves. Especially family members. Everybody's innocent. #Quote by Terry McMillan
Innocent quotes by Azar Nafisi
#107. Once we know of atrocities we cannot remain silent, and knowledge inevitably leads to an urge to protect the innocent. #Quote by Azar Nafisi
Innocent quotes by Cory Doctorow
#108. I'm 17 years old. I'm not a straight-A student or anything. Even so, I figured out how to make an Internet that they can't wiretap. I figured out how to jam their person-tracking technology. I can turn innocent people into suspects and turn guilty people into innocents in their eyes. I could get metal onto an airplane or beat a no-fly list. I figured this stuff out by looking at the web and by thinking about it. If I can do it, terrorists can do it. They told us they took away our freedom to make us safe. Do you feel safe? #Quote by Cory Doctorow
Innocent quotes by Helen Prejean
#109. It is easy to forgive the innocent. It is the guilty who test our morality. People are more than the worst thing they have ever done. #Quote by Helen Prejean
Innocent quotes by George W. Bush
#110. Suiciders are willing to kill innocent life in order to send the projection that this is an impossible mission. #Quote by George W. Bush
Innocent quotes by Flann O'Brien
#111. Whichever day it was, it was a gently day - mild, magical and innocent with great sailing of white cloud serene and impregnable in the high sky, moving along like kingly swans on quiet water. The sun was in the neighbourhood also, distributing his enchantment unobtrusively, colouring the sides of things that were unalive and livening the hearts of living things. #Quote by Flann O'Brien
Innocent quotes by Akwaeke Emezi
#112. Good and innocent, they not the same thing; they don't wear the same face. #Quote by Akwaeke Emezi
Innocent quotes by Marcel Proust
#113. Life is extraordinarily suave and sweet with certain natural, witty, affectionate people who have unusual distinction and are capable of every vice, but who make a display of none in public and about whom no one can affirm they have a single one. There is something supple and secret about them. Besides, their perversity gives spice to their most innocent occupations, such as taking a walk in the garden at night. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Innocent quotes by MaryJanice Davidson
#114. Here I am, just wandering down a deserted street in the middle of the night. I hope I don't run into any trouble. Goodness, that would just ruin my whole evening. I strolled and hummed, trying to project Innocent Victim. #Quote by MaryJanice Davidson
Innocent quotes by William Sleator
#115. He reached out and took her hand. Neither cared that someone might see. They had been taught all their lives that the only deep feelings between men and women were sexual, but now they knew that it was a lie. They were friends and they loved one another, and their hand-holding was perfectly innocent. It was one more thing to rejoice in, one more way in which they had risen above the system, above the machine. #Quote by William Sleator
Innocent quotes by Julia Child
#116. Dining with one's friends and beloved family is certainly one of life's primal and most innocent delights, one that is both soul-satisfying and eternal. #Quote by Julia Child
Innocent quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#117. We should treat our minds, that is, ourselves, as innocent and ingenuous children, whose guardians we are, and be careful what objects and what subjects we thrust on their attention. Read not the Times. Read the Eternities.. Knowledge does not come to us by details, but in flashes of light from heaven. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Innocent quotes by Ai Weiwei
#118. Many people I know - writers, poets - they have all been sentenced not once but sometimes three times after they come out. They serve five or six years, come out another time, and then nine years. Come out again, 12 years. Only because they have a different opinion. They are innocent people, they have beautiful minds, beautiful hearts. #Quote by Ai Weiwei
Innocent quotes by Roger L'Estrange
#119. There are ways of Deceiving the Eyes, as well as of Blinding them; so that the Cause of the Innocent must be remitted at last to that Great and Final Decision, where there is no longer any Place for Passion, Partiality, Corruption, or Error. But as to the Business of This World, when the Cocks and the Lambs lie at the Mercy of the Cats and Wolves, they must never expect better Quarter; especially where the Hearts Blood of the One, is the Nourishment and Entertainment of the Other. #Quote by Roger L'Estrange
Innocent quotes by Karen Witemeyer
#120. So, you think God made a mistake." She leaned away from him, her voice hardening just enough to get his attention. He twisted to face her. "Why should an innocent die while a reprobate lives?" "I see," she said. "Only sinful people should have died in that accident if God were indeed just. Of course, all have sinned, so I suppose only the tiniest of babes should have survived according to your reasoning. #Quote by Karen Witemeyer
Innocent quotes by Tea Obreht
#121. When your fight has purpose - to free you from something, to interfere on the behalf of an innocent - it has a hope of finality. When the fight is about unraveling - when it is about your name, the places to which your blood is anchored, the attachment of your name to some landmark or event - there is nothing but hate, and the long, slow progression of people who feed on it and are fed it, meticulously, by the ones who come before them. Then the fight is endless, and comes in waves and waves, but always retains its capacity to surprise those who hope against it. #Quote by Tea Obreht
Innocent quotes by Mohammed Zaki Ansari
#122. For you it may be enjoyable to betraying but do you know you are killing one innocent person who trusted on you.
So keep it mind your enjoy is not free.Someone paid for your fun by His/Her life #Quote by Mohammed Zaki Ansari
Innocent quotes by Pol Pot
#123. Better to kill an innocent by mistake than spare an enemy by mistake. #Quote by Pol Pot
Innocent quotes by Klaus Mikaelson
#124. We were innocent once. This bloodlust was forced upon us by our parents, turning us from prey to predator. We are the demons lurking in the shadow, We are the savage villains in fairy tales told to children. But not for my child. Not for Hope. In her story, we are the knights in shining armour. Without you by my side, I don't think I can survive my own love for my daughter. I need you. I need you, brother. The monster in me can only be checked by the monster in you. Only together can we defeat our demons and save our family. #Quote by Klaus Mikaelson
Innocent quotes by Benjamin Todd Jealous
#125. Racial profiling punishes innocent individuals for the past actions of those who look and sound like them. It misdirects crucial resources and undercuts the trust needed between law enforcement and the communities they serve. It has no place in our national discourse, and no place in our nation's police departments. #Quote by Benjamin Todd Jealous
Innocent quotes by Terry Eagleton
#126. The 'healthy' sign, for Barthes, is one which draws attention to its own arbitrariness - which does not try to palm itself off as 'natural' but which, in the very moment of conveying a meaning, communicates something of its own relative, artificial status as well. …Signs which pass themselves off as natural, which offer themselves as the only conceivable way of viewing the world, are by that token authoritarian and ideological. It is one of the functions of ideology to 'naturalize' social reality, to make it seem as innocent and unchangeable as Nature itself. Ideology seeks to convert culture into Nature, and the 'natural' sign is one of its weapons. Saluting a flag, or agreeing that Western democracy represents the true meaning of the word 'freedom', become the most obvious, spontaneous responses in the world. Ideology, in this sense, is a kind of contemporary mythology, a realm which has purged itself of ambiguity and alternative possibility. #Quote by Terry Eagleton
Innocent quotes by Robin Hobb
#127. Innocent?" He was incensed at her suggestion he was somehow responsible for this mess. "I've done nothing wrong, I intend nothing wrong. I am innocent!"
"Half the evil in this world occurs while decent people stand by and do nothing wrong. It's not enough to refrain from evil, Trell. People have to attempt to do right, even if they believe they cannot succeed."
"Even when it's stupid to try?" he asked with savage sarcasm.
"Especially then," she replied sweetly. "That's how it's done, Trell. You break your heart against this stony world. You fling yourself at it, on the side of good, and you do not ask the cost. That's how you do it. #Quote by Robin Hobb
Innocent quotes by Stephen King
#128. Your own politicians make our Dr. Goebbels look like a child playing with picture books in a kindergarten. They speak of morality while they douse screaming children and old women in burning napalm. Your draft-resisters are called cowards and 'peaceniks.' For refusing to follow orders they are either put in jails or scourged from the country. Those who demonstrate against this country's unfortunate Asian adventure are clubbed down in the streets. The GI soldiers who kill the innocent are decorated by Presidents, welcomed home from the bayoneting of children and the burning of hospitals with parades and bunting. They are given dinners, Keys to the City, free tickets to pro football games." He toasted his glass in Todd's direction. "Only those who lose are tried as war criminals for following orders and directives. #Quote by Stephen King
Innocent quotes by Debasish Mridha
#129. I don't hate you. I love you and adore you because you are so innocent you don't know what you are doing. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Innocent quotes by Karl Rove
#130. We face a brutal enemy who will kill the innocent for one purpose and that is to gain control of the Middle East and to use the leverage of oil to bring down the West, and to attack us again. #Quote by Karl Rove
Innocent quotes by Rod Dreher
#131. At some point in this death-penalty debate, the sanctity of innocent life demands that men and women of conservative conscience have to say: Enough. #Quote by Rod Dreher
Innocent quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#132. But in my rebellious way I think that people have to be able to start over, just as I believed that a little girl has to be able to stay an innocent child her whole life long if she wants to, #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Innocent quotes by Thomas De Quincey
#133. The peace of nature and of the innocent creatures of god seems to be secure and deep, only so long as the presence of man and his restless and unquiet spirit are not there to trouble its sanctity. #Quote by Thomas De Quincey
Innocent quotes by Tessa Dare
#134. As she hurried on deck, her mind was awhirl. All that time that Mr. Grayson had been touching her, teasing her…she'd been consorting with a pirate. If he had the slightest inkling that she carried hundreds of pounds beneath her stays, he'd surely stop at nothing to get it. And yet, she could not bid caution to overtake the gothic thrill. For Heaven's sake, a pirate.
She could be in danger, she admonished herself.
She could be plundered.
The possibility really ought to have frightened her more than it did.
Perhaps she could not escape the man, but she had to tamp down this response he incited in her. There was only one thing for it. She would go to her cabin and sketch. Something simple, innocent. Rosebuds, apples, blocks of wood. Anything but him. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Innocent quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#135. She was living in bad sociery; and, imaginary though it was, its influence affected her, for she was feeding heart and fancy on dangerous and unsubstantial food, and was fast brushing the innocent bloom from her nature by a premature acquaintance with the darker side of life, which comes soon enough to all of us. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Innocent quotes by Robert Casey
#136. A 1990 Gallup poll found that 77 percent of Americans polled said abortion was the taking of human life. I agree, and believe that taking the life on an innocent child is unjust. #Quote by Robert Casey
Innocent quotes by Dennis Prager
#137. The fact is that people who strap bombs to their bodies to blow up families at a Bar Mitzvah in Israel, plant bombs at a nightclub in Bali, or slit stewardesses' throats and ram airplanes filled with innocent Americans into office buildings do not do so for any reason related to poverty. They do so because they hold evil beliefs and have deformed consciences #Quote by Dennis Prager
Innocent quotes by Jan Schakowsky
#138. It would be one thing if we could say the system works [in Illinois], and that individuals followed procedures and were found innocent, but in fact in all the cases it was really a fluke ... We find persistent wrongdoing on the part of law enforcement. It's really sheer luck that those convicted of these [capital] crimes were exonerated in the end. #Quote by Jan Schakowsky
Innocent quotes by Roy F. Baumeister
#139. The myth of pure evil, then, is surprisingly durable and elastic. Even when each side provokes and antagonizes the other, the myth can be invoked. Ironically, the myth fails to acknowledge mutual provocation, but it appears that both sides in a conflict are quite capable of seeing themselves as innocent victims and the other as unreasonably, gratuitously wicked. #Quote by Roy F. Baumeister
Innocent quotes by Chris Colfer
#140. THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS AN INNOCENT WITCH! #Quote by Chris Colfer
Innocent quotes by Jack Kerouac
#141. I don't think anybody'd remember and certainly do know everybody'd lie. The reason I'm so bitter and, as I said, 'in anguish,' nowadays, or one of the reasons, is that everybody's begun to lie and because they lie they assume that I lie too: they overlook the fact that I remember very well many things (of course I've forgotten some...)

I do believe that lying is a sin, unless it's innocent lie based on lack of memory, certainly the giving of false evidence and being a false witness is a mortal sin, but what I mean is, insofar as lying has become so prevalent in the world today (thanks to Marxian Dialectical propaganda and Comitern techniques among other causes) that, when a man tells the truth, everybody, looking in the mirror and seeing a liar...

...like those LSD heads in newspaper photographs who sit in parks gazing rapturously at the sky to show how high they are when they're only victims momentarily of a contraction of the blood vessels and nerves in the brain that causes the illusion... #Quote by Jack Kerouac
Innocent quotes by Jo Walton
#142. Yet I felt he was innocent in a way I was not, that I knew more about evil than he ever could, because he had parents who loved him and wanted the best for him, while I had grown up with Mummy. #Quote by Jo Walton
Innocent quotes by Al Sharpton
#143. Civilians are arrested every single day - including innocent ones - and they must wait until their day in court in order to argue their side of the story. Police officers must be subjected to the same rules. #Quote by Al Sharpton
Innocent quotes by Lauren Kate
#144. Lucinda's wings had been special. They
had been purely, stunningly white. Unspoiled.
Innocent of the choices the rest of
them had made. The only other fallen angel
who had preserved his white wings was
Daniel. #Quote by Lauren Kate
Innocent quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#145. She pulled back, her eyes searching mine, and then she reclaimed the distance, and, damn, the kiss was half innocent, half desperate, and wholly perfect. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Innocent quotes by Seth Andrews
#148. Theirs was the snot-nosed, sticky-fingered world of peanut butter sandwiches and cartoons, playgrounds and superhero pajamas, crayons and pop-up books, booster chairs and midday naps. Their world existed no farther than the reach of their tiny arms. They were new. Innocent. Vulnerable. Yet they were somehow able to take personal and public responsibility for a hard-wired sin nature, implored to pledge allegiance to an invisible overlord they could not see, and charged to prevent their own torture in a nasty, horrible place that the Vacation Bible School teachers called Hell. #Quote by Seth Andrews
Innocent quotes by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
#149. As soon as you start wanting something, then your eyes can see; your mind will be open to identify all the possible ways of obtaining it. #Quote by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
Innocent quotes by Bruce Schneier
#150. For if we are observed in all matters, we are constantly under threat of correction, judgment, criticism, even plagiarism of our own uniqueness. We become children, fettered under watchful eyes, constantly fearful that - either now or in the uncertain future - patterns we leave behind will be brought back to implicate us, by whatever authority has now become focused upon our once-private and innocent acts. We lose our individuality, because everything we do is observable and recordable.
[The Eternal Value of Privacy, May 18, 2006] #Quote by Bruce Schneier
Innocent quotes by William Shakespeare
#151. Your face, my thane, is as a book where men
May read strange matters. To beguile the time,
Look like the time; bear welcome in your eye,
Your hand, your tongue: look like the innocent flower,
But be the serpent under't. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Innocent quotes by Ayn Rand
#152. Isn't it wonderful that our bodies can give us so much pleasure? he said to her once, quite simply. They were happy and radiantly innocent. They were both incapable of the conception that joy is sin. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Innocent quotes by Wentworth Boughn
#153. You can only be innocent for so long. After that, you're just plain stupid. #Quote by Wentworth Boughn
Innocent quotes by Rebel Wilson
#154. I think I appear very innocent and soft, but I'm actually very dark and edgy. It's a weird dichotomy. #Quote by Rebel Wilson
Innocent quotes by Penny Reid
#155. Anyway," Beau - clearly eager to change the subject - pointed down the hall, "let's talk about the color Jethro decided to paint the second bedroom."

"What's wrong with green?" Jethro grinned slyly. His poker face had always sucked.

"Nothing is wrong with green, but that's a very odd shade of green. What was it called again?"

"Sweet pea," Duane supplied flatly for his twin. "It was called sweet pea and I believe it was labeled as nursery paint."

"Nursery paint, huh? You have something to tell us, Jethro?" Beau teased, mirroring Jethro's grin. "No news to share? No big bombshell to drop?"

Jethro glanced at me. "I can't believe you didn't tell them yet."

"Why would I? I'm good at keeping secrets." I shoved my hands in my pockets, making sure I looked innocent. "And I'm not the one who's pregnant."

"I knew it!" Beau attacked Jethro, pulling him into a quick man-hug.

Jethro's grin widened to as large as I've ever seen it. "How could you possibly know?"

Duane clapped Jethro on the back as soon as Beau released him. "Because you've always wanted kids, and weren't one to futz around once you made up your mind."

"You should have painted it vomit green, to disguise all the baby vomit you're going to have to deal with," Beau suggested.

"And shit brown," Duane added. "Don't forget about the shit."

"Y'all are the best." Jethro placed his hands over his chest #Quote by Penny Reid
Innocent quotes by Kofi Annan
#156. Whether our task is fighting poverty, stemming the spread of disease or saving innocent lives from mass murder, we have seen that we cannot succeed without the leadership of the strong and the engagement of all. #Quote by Kofi Annan
Innocent quotes by Tom Robbins
#157. It might be noted here that Freudian analysts of fairy tales have suggested that kissing toads and frogs is symbolized fellatio. In that regard, Princess Leigh-Cheri was, on a conscious level, innocent, although not so naïve as Queen Tilli, who though fellatio was an obscure Italian opera and was annoyed that she couldn't find the score. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Innocent quotes by Leviak B. Kelly
#158. As Deborah sits below a tree to give advice to her people, the cat could envision itself above Deborah. In the cats mind, the visual allusion would first point to the prophetess as being a predator. This consideration would not be hard to reach for the lucid intelligent cat as she is giving advice to her people here as how to engage in war. Envisioning this text, the cats would find it hard not to recognize the predatory nature of the human beneath it. This fact means that Deborah becomes, in feline hermeneutics, the antagonist. The prophetess would be seen as a danger to the cat. This could lead the cat to deduce that the enemy of the prophetess was a fellow protagonist. Then the advice that Deborah gave to Barak would seem as a malicious attack on a ally or worse an innocent. #Quote by Leviak B. Kelly
Innocent quotes by Jonas Jonasson
#159. Above all, Suharto had been hunting down communists, presumed communists, suspected communists, possible communists, highly unlikely communists, and the odd innocent person. #Quote by Jonas Jonasson
Innocent quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#160. The Americans of the United States do not let their dogs hunt the Indians as do the Spaniards in Mexico, but at bottom it is the same pitiless feeling which here, as everywhere else, animates the European race. This world here belongs to us, they tell themselves every day: the Indian race is destined for final destruction which one cannot prevent and which it is not desirable to delay. Heaven has not made them to become civilized; it is necessary that they die. Besides I do not want to get mixed up in it. I will not do anything against them: I will limit myself to providing everything that will hasten their ruin. In time I will have their lands and will be innocent of their death.
Satisfied with his reasoning, the American goes to church where he hears the minister of the gospel repeat every day that all men are brothers, and that the Eternal Being who has made them all in like image, has given them all the duty to help one another. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville

Innocent quotes by Stephen E. Robinson
#163. What the Lord is saying here is: "It doesn't matter what you did. Whatever it was, no matter how horrible or vile, is not the issue. The issue here is that whatever your sin was or is I can erase it, I can clean you up and make you innocent, pure, and worthy, and I can do it today; I can do it now. #Quote by Stephen E. Robinson
Innocent quotes by Maya Angelou
#164. I am convinced that most people do not grow up ... We marry and dare to have children and call that growing up. I think what we do is mostly grow old. We carry accumulation of years in our bodies, and on our faces, but generally our real selves, the children inside, are innocent and shy as magnolias. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Innocent quotes by Neal Stephenson
#165. Now keep in mind that the typical Greek myth goes something like this: innocent shepherd boy is minding his own business, an overflying god spies him and gets a hard-on, swoops down and rapes him silly; while the victim is still staggering around in a daze, that god's wife or lover, in a jealous rage, turns him–the helpless, innocent victim, that is–into let's say an immortal turtle and e.g. power-staples him to a sheet of plywood with a dish of turtle food just out of his reach and leaves him out in the sun forever to be repeatedly disemboweled by army ants and stung by hornets or something. So if Arachne had dissed anyone else in the Pantheon, she would have been just a smoking hole in the ground before she knew what hit her. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Innocent quotes by Bianca Jagger
#166. The killing of innocent people is always wrong. #Quote by Bianca Jagger
Innocent quotes by Jim Butcher
#167. Sometimes, Hoss," he said very gently, "you lose. Sometimes the darkness takes everyone. Sometimes the monster escapes to kill again another day." He shook his head and looked down. "Sometimes, Hoss, the innocent little ones are murdered. And there's not one goddamned thing you can do about it. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Innocent quotes by Ama H. Vanniarachchy
#168. If humans are kind to each other, if really humanity do exist, the world would have been a better place and we wouldn't need to fight so much for innocent lives. This would have made our struggles easier. As I get involved more and more in protecting innocent lives my faith in Humanity fades away. What a world we live in? Can we have faith in humanity? We humans are here to protect others, but we are the very reason that their lives are in danger. How long can we fight for the week, for the voiceless? The future is so dark!!! #Quote by Ama H. Vanniarachchy
Innocent quotes by Richard Jenkins
#169. The main thing on film is you want to be innocent to the moment. #Quote by Richard Jenkins
Innocent quotes by Richelle Mead
#170. Not true," said Adrian. "All guys mean the same thing when they want to 'get to know a girl better.' You're a wellbred young lady, so I understand why you'd be too innocent to understand. Good thing you've got me here to interpret. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Innocent quotes by Barack Obama
#171. Citizenship means standing up for the lives that gun violence steals from us each day. I have seen the courage of parents, students, pastors, and police officers all over this country who say 'we are not afraid,' and I intend to keep trying, with or without Congress, to help stop more tragedies from visiting innocent Americans in our movie theaters, shopping malls, or schools like Sandy Hook. #Quote by Barack Obama
Innocent quotes by Sylvain Reynard
#172. As soon as the words presented themselves, Gabriel knew that they were perfect for him. Perfect for what he was contemplating doing to her. Perfect for his own self-justification.
Tasting. Taking. Sucking. Sinning. Draining. Abandoning.
She was pure. She was innocent. He wanted her.
Facilis descensus Averni.
But he would not be the one to make her bleed. He could not, would not, make another girl bleed for the rest of his life. All thoughts of seduction and mad, passionate f*cking on desks and chairs, against walls and bookshelves and windows, immediately gave way. He would not take her. He would not mark her and claim what he had no right to claim. #Quote by Sylvain Reynard
Innocent quotes by Malachi Martin
#173. God ... my self in the Bronx always says that God has a funny sense of humor..He has a way of treating things, he deals with each individual soul delicately, tenderly, compassionately but he deals with groups of people [country] according to certain laws and he always observes those laws and that means the innocent are punished with the evil. #Quote by Malachi Martin
Innocent quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#174. Anything beautiful may not be innocent, but anything innocent is certainly beautiful! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Innocent quotes by John Milton
#175. The Tempter ere th' Accuser of man-kind, To wreck on innocent frail man his loss Of that first Battel, and his flight to Hell: Yet #Quote by John Milton
Innocent quotes by Ludwig Wittgenstein
#176. Since social relationships are always ambiguous, since my thought is only a unit, since my thoughts create rifts as much as they unite, since my words establish contacts by being spoken and create isolation by remaining unspoken, since an immense moat separates the subjective certitude that I have for myself from the objective reality that I represent to others, since I never stop finding myself guilty even though I feel I am innocent ... #Quote by Ludwig Wittgenstein
Innocent quotes by John F. MacArthur Jr.
#177. Children used to be unknowing and innocent when it came to certain issues in life. But that innocence has been lost in today's electronic environment. Kids are exposed to ideas and content their minds and emotions are not ready to handle. And under the onslaught of this corrupt world with its wrong concepts, wrong desires, wrong deeds, and wrong attitudes, children come under all sorts of negative influences that end up bringing serious problems into the home. #Quote by John F. MacArthur Jr.
Innocent quotes by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe

Innocent quotes by L.P. Lovell
#179. I'm no longer the innocent girl he craved so badly. I'm darker than he is. Tainted beyond measure. Everything that happened to me has changed me. I can feel it, like a snake coiled around my neck, this numbness beckoning me into its dark depths, and I embrace it. I welcome it because it means I don't have to feel, and that allows me to survive. #Quote by L.P. Lovell
Innocent quotes by Julia De Burgos
#180. Beauty of blood. Innocent beauty flowering in my weeping. #Quote by Julia De Burgos
Innocent quotes by Martina Hingis
#181. I find this accusation so horrendous, so monstrous, that I have decided to confront it head-on by talking to the press. I am frustrated and angry. I believe that I am absolutely, 100 per cent innocent. I assure you: I have never taken drugs. #Quote by Martina Hingis
Innocent quotes by Franz Kafka
#182. It's characteristic of this judicial system that a man is condemned not only when he's innocent but also in ignorance. #Quote by Franz Kafka
Innocent quotes by Angela Carter
#183. Iconic clothing has been secularized ... A guardsman in a dress uniform is ostensibly an icon of aggression; his coat is red as the blood he hopes to shed. Seen on a coat-hanger, with no man inside it, the uniform loses all its blustering significance and, to the innocent eye seduced by decorative colour and tactile braid, it is as abstract in symbolic information as a parasol to an Eskimo. It becomes simply magnificent. #Quote by Angela Carter
Innocent quotes by Richard Steele
#184. It is a certain sign of an ill heart to be inclined to defamation. They who are harmless and innocent can have no gratification that way; but it ever arises from a neglect of what is laudable in a man's self. #Quote by Richard Steele
Innocent quotes by Jo Nesbo
#185. I'm not a big crime reader, but I'm reading Michael Connelly's 'The Reversal.' I'm going back to his novels. I'm also reading Keith Richards' 'Life.' I'm always fascinated by the transition from the innocent late '60s and early '70s and the youth culture becoming an industry. #Quote by Jo Nesbo
Innocent quotes by Molly McAdams
#186. Well, well. If it isn't the princess."
My body tensed and I frowned when I saw him approaching. Narrowing my eyes, I plastered on a fake smile. "I almost didn't recognize you without a tramp attached to you."
Drew and the other guy snickered.
Leaning into my ear he harshly whispered, "Would you like to change that? I'm not up to my limit tonight yet."
Gah, why did he have to be so hot? My body was practically humming with how close he was. I leaned away and replied with the most innocent expression on my face, "Oh I'm sorry, but I don't have any STDs, I'm not your type. #Quote by Molly McAdams
Innocent quotes by Harold S. Kushner
#187. How seriously would we take person who said, "I have faith in Adolf Hitler, or in John Dilinger. I can't explain why they did the things they did, but I can't believe they would have done them without a good reason." Yet people try to justify the deaths and tragedies God inflicts on innocent victims with almost these same words.
Furthermore, my religious commitment to the supreme value of an individual life makes it hard for me to accept an answer that is not scandalized by an innocent person's pain, that condones human pain because it supposedly contributes to an overall work of esthetic value. If a human artist or employer made children suffer so that something immensely impressive or valuable could come to pass, we would put him in prison. Why then should we excuse God for causing such undeserved pain, no matter how wonderful the ultimate result may be? #Quote by Harold S. Kushner
Innocent quotes by C.J. Heck
#188. Children have such an innocent view of their world and surroundings; every thought is a garden full of wonder. #Quote by C.J. Heck
Innocent quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#189. Who claims Truth, Truth abandons. History is hir'd, or coerc'd, only in Interests that must ever prove base. She is too innocent, to be left within the reach of anyone in Power,- who need but touch her, and all her Credit is in the instant vanish'd, as if it had never been. She needs rather to be tended lovingly and honorably by fabulists and counterfeiters, Ballad-Mongers and Cranks of ev'ry Radius, Masters of Disguise to provide her the Costume, Toilette, and Bearing, and Speech nimble enough to keep her beyond the Desires, or even the Curiosity, of Government. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Innocent quotes by Rajneesh

Innocent quotes by Louis D. Brandeis

Innocent quotes by Marianne Williamson
#192. The story doesn't begin with grown women being massacred in the workplace or in the press. It begins with innocent little girls who become convinced, for whatever reason, that the girl within them isn't good enough. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Innocent quotes by Ruth Bernhard
#193. It is so basic. A human being is an innocent part of nature. Our civilization has distorted this universal quality that allows us to feel at home in our skin. Other animals have coats that they accept, but the human race has yet to come to terms with being nude. #Quote by Ruth Bernhard
Innocent quotes by Victor Hugo
#194. This is because he has in his heart a pearl, innocence; and pearls are not to be dissolved in mud. So long as man is in his childhood, God wills that he shall be innocent. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Innocent quotes by Martin Amis
#195. Left alone in an interrogation room, some men will look as though they're well into their last ten seconds before throwing up. And they'll look that way for hours. They sweat like they just climbed out of the swimming pool. They eat and swallow air. I mean these guys are really going through it. You come and tip a light in their face. And they're bugeyed - the orbs both big and red, and faceted also. Little raised soft-cornered squares, wired with rust.
These are the innocent. #Quote by Martin Amis
Innocent quotes by Diana Palmer
#196. He got in beside her and impatiently reached for her seat belt, snapping it in place. "You always forget," he murmured, meeting her eyes.
Her breath came uneasily through her lips as she met that level stare and responded helplessly to it. He was handsome and sexy and she loved him more than her own life. She had for years. But it was a hopeless, unreturned adoration that left her unfulfilled. He'd never touched her, not even in the most innocent way. He only looked.
"I should close my door to you," she said huskily. "Refuse to speak to you, refuse to see you, and get on with my life. You're a constant torment."
Unexpectedly he reached out and touched her soft cheek with just his fingertips. They smoothed down to her full, soft mouth and teased the lower lip away from the upper one. "I'm Lakota," he said quietly. "You're white."
"There is," she said unsteadily, "such a thing as birth control."
His face was very solemn and his eyes were narrow and intent on hers. "And sex is all you want from me, Cecily?" he asked mockingly. "No kids, ever?"
It was the most serious conversation they'd ever had. She couldn't look away from his dark eyes. She wanted him. But she wanted children, too, eventually. Her expression told him so.
"No, Cecily," he continued gently. "Sex isn't what you want at all. And what you really want, I can't give you. We have no future together. If I marry one day, it's important to me that I marry a woman with the same backgroun #Quote by Diana Palmer
Innocent quotes by Socrates
#197. ...[Y]ou know very well the truth of what I [say]... I have incurred a great deal of bitter hostility; and this is what will bring about my destruction, if anything does... the slander and jealousy of a very large section of the people. They have been fatal to a great many other innocent men, and I suppose will continue to be so; there is no likelihood that they will stop at me. But perhaps someone will say 'Do you feel no compunction, Socrates, at having followed a line of action which puts you in danger of the death-penalty?' I might fairly reply to him 'You are mistaken, my friend, if you think that a man who is worth anything ought to spend his time weighing up the prospects of life and death. He has only one thing to consider in performing any action; that is, whether he is acting rightly or wrongly, like a good man or a bad one...['] The truth of the matter is this, gentlemen. Where a man has once taken up his stand, either because it seems best to him or in obedience to his orders, there I believe he is bound to remain and face the danger, taking no account of death or anything else before dishonour. #Quote by Socrates
Innocent quotes by Halldor Laxness
#198. He disliked tears, he has always disliked tears, had never understood them, and sometimes lost his temper over them; but he felt now that he could not rebuke this flower of his life, this innocent form, water and youth are inseparable companions, and besides it's Christmas night. So he merely hinted again that she must have forgotten again that he had promised to build her a house. #Quote by Halldor Laxness
Innocent quotes by Yahtzee Croshaw
#199. It's way too long and I gave up on it. Abandoning forever an innocent child to a hostile and unforgiving land. Sometimes I still hear him crying late at night. He sounds exactly like a malfunctioning air conditioner. #Quote by Yahtzee Croshaw
Innocent quotes by Richard J. Foster
#200. Corporate "confession of guilt." "The church," he declared, "confesses that she has witnessed the lawless application of brutal force, the physical and spiritual suffering of countless innocent people, oppression, hatred and murder, and that she has not raised her voice on behalf of the #Quote by Richard J. Foster
