Inquisitive Stance quotes by Camilo Gomes Jr.
#1. Ask yourself your own questions and go after what might answer them. Before life, you must maintain a philosophical and scientific stance. Always. #Quote by Camilo Gomes Jr.
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Douglas Coupland
#2. When you are young, you always expect that the world is going to end. And then you get older and the world still chugs along and you are forced to re-evaluate your stance on the apocalypse as well as your own relationship to time and death. You realize that the world will indeed continue, with or without you, and the pictures you see in your head. So you try to understand the pictures instead. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Marie Rutkoski
#3. Someone--a man--came up behind her and snaked an arm around her waist.
Not flirtation. Aggression.
Kestrel sidestepped and spun, pulling her dagger from its sheath.
Irex. His dagger was drawn, too.
"A fight, dear Kestrel?" His stance was easy. He didn't know how to play Bite and Sting, but his skill at weapons outmatched hers.
"Not here," she said stiffly.
"No, not here." His voice was soft. "But anywhere, if you want it."
"Exactly what do you think you are doing, Irex?"
"You mean, a moment ago? Oh, I don't know. Maybe I was trying to pick your pocket." His tone hinted at a coarse double meaning.
Kestrel slid her dagger into its sheath. "Theft is the only way you will get my gold." She walked from the cover of trees and saw, with shaky gratitude, that the party was still there, that the sound of porcelain and spoons still tinkled over low talk, and that no one had noticed anything.
No one, except perhaps Arin. He was waiting for her. She felt a flash of something unpleasant--embarrassment, perhaps, as she wondered how much of this afternoon he had overheard. Dismay to think that he might have witnessed that last exchange with Irex, and misunderstood it. Or was she troubled by something else? Maybe it was the thought that Arin knew perfectly well what had been taking place behind the trees and had made no move to interfere, to help.
It was not his place to interfere, she reminded herself. She had not needed his help.

Inquisitive Stance quotes by Larry Craig
#4. (I have) a wide stance when going to the bathroom. #Quote by Larry Craig
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Daniel Ionson
#5. We must return to the first question of philosophy: "Do we want the truth?"

We indict others when they ignore it or twist it to their own agendas. But do we honestly want the truth above all else, even when the truth will cost us, even when we must reverse our stance and run the risk of others' derision? Are we willing to radically change our lives in order to pursue it? Are we willing to change, to let go of lifelong, cherished, character-bound beliefs? Are we willing to pay? #Quote by Daniel Ionson
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Don DeLillo
#6. Within sixty-minute limits or one-hundred-yard limits or the limits of a game board, we can look for perfect moments or perfect structures. In my fiction I think this search sometimes turns out to be a cruel delusion.

No optimism, no pessimism. No homesickness for lost values or for the way fiction used to be written.

Everybody seems to know everything. Subjects surface and are totally exhausted in a matter of days or weeks, totally played out by the publishing industry and the broadcast industry. Nothing is too arcane to escape the treatment, the process. Making things difficult for the reader is less an attack on the reader than it is on the age and its facile knowledge-market.

The writer is the person who stands outside society, independent of affiliation and independent of influence. The writer is the man or woman who automatically takes a stance against his or her government. There are so many temptations for American writers to become part of the system and part of the structure that now, more than ever, we have to resist. American writers ought to stand and live in the margins, and be more dangerous. Writers in repressive societies are considered dangerous. That's why so many of them are in jail.

Some people prefer to believe in conspiracy because they are made anxious by random acts. Believing in conspiracy is almost comforting because, in a sense, a conspiracy is a story we tell each other to ward off the dread of chaotic #Quote by Don DeLillo
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Stephanie  Carroll
#7. Sometimes while sitting there staring out the window, I imagined a place in my mind, a white room. A simple space coated in white paint. The white represented responsibility, obligation. It didn't require what responsibility and obligation required, but it had the same effect. It maintained the person in the room; it kept the person alive and well, along with everything and everyone that person cared for, but nothing the person held dear existed in the room. The person was alone. The person experienced no joy from bearing the weight of responsibility, earned no prize.

I imagined a particular person in the room - a woman, also clothed in white. This woman constantly faced a dilemma. She longed for freedom. She longed to be the bird.

Her open palms grazed the rutted expanse of the wall. She knew that something lay beyond - beyond the white. She could burst out into the world of grass, sky, and lavender, but she knew that if she broke through the barricade, everything she protected would crumble, suffocate, and wither behind her. Her own freedom would last only moments because she, too, couldn't survive without the white. Earth and water would smother her, and radiant light would slice through her like a blade.

I imagined her pressing with both hands, weighing freedom against existence and all that depended on her, but in the end she lightened her stance and stepped away. She always chose to stay, to fulfill her obligation.

I thought #Quote by Stephanie Carroll
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Marissa Meyer
#8. She surveyed him for a long moment, her brows knitting together. "Murder?"
His grin grew. "Thank you, but no. I started a riot on t he yard." He adjusted his collar, before adding, "We were protesting the soap."
Her confusion grew, and Thorne noticed that she was still in her defensive stance.
"The soap," he said again, wondering if she'd heard him. "It's too drying."
She said nothing.
"I have sensitive skin. #Quote by Marissa Meyer
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Jose N Harris
#9. Fighting can be like champagne. It can go to the head of a coward as quickly as of a hero. Anyone has the ability to be brave on a battlefield; when you are forced with the choice of: Be brave or ... be killed.
You may not realize it, but most of us have the chance to be heroes off the battlefield. When we take a stance and find our inner courage, instead of looking the other direction when we encounter evilness or oppression. #Quote by Jose N Harris
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Mike Carey
#10. Human beings take social stances, and if you're respectful of all human beings, you have to decide what you're going to do and why you're going to do it. #Quote by Mike Carey
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Gaston Leroux
#11. I fell back against the wall and he came up to me, grinding his teeth, and, as I fell upon my knees, he hissed mad, incoherent words and curses at me. Leaning over me, he cried, 'Look! You want to see! See! Feast your eyes, glut your soul on my cursed ugliness! Look at Erik's face! Now you know the face of the voice! You were not content to hear me, eh? You wanted to know what I looked like! Oh, you women are so inquisitive! Well, are you satisfied? I'm a very good-looking fellow, eh? … When a woman has seen me, as you have, she belongs to me. She loves me for ever. I am a kind of Don Juan, you know!' And, drawing himself up to his full height, with his hand on his hip, wagging the hideous thing that was his head on his shoulders, he roared, 'Look at me! I AM DON JUAN TRIUMPHANT!' And, when I turned away my head and begged for mercy, he drew it to him, brutally, twisting his dead fingers into my hair."

"Enough! Enough!" cried Raoul. "I will kill him. In Heaven's name, Christine, tell me where the dining-room on the lake is! I must kill him!"

"Oh, be quiet, Raoul, if you want to know!"

"Yes, I want to know how and why you went back; I must know! … But, in any case, I will kill him!"

"Oh, Raoul, listen, listen! … He dragged me by my hair and then … and then … Oh, it is too horrible!"

"Well, what? Out with it!" exclaimed Raoul fiercely. "Out with it, quick!"

"Then he hissed at me. 'Ah, I frighten you, do I? … I da #Quote by Gaston Leroux
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Ken Wilber
#12. In other words, multiculturalism is a noble, logocentric, and rational endeavor that simply misidentifies its own stance and claims to be not rational because some of the things it tolerates are not rational. But its own tolerance is rational through and through, and rightly so. Rationality is the only structure that will tolerate structures other than itself. It thus fails to notice that that stance itself actually (and appropriately) rejects all narrower perspectives (which clearly shows that all perspectives are not equal). #Quote by Ken Wilber
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Robert Lynd
#13. The days on which one has been the most inquisitive are among the days on which one has been happiest. #Quote by Robert Lynd
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Walt Disney
#14. I happen to be kind of an inquisitive guy and when I see things I don't like, I start thinking, why do they have to be like this and how can I improve them? #Quote by Walt Disney
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#15. The grandest form of delusion is misconstruing the obvious. Persons with an open, inquisitive, and intuitive mind can detect hidden clues that aggressive, narrow-minded, and impatient rationalist fail to perceive. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Alessandra Torre
#16. I have imagined him in my mind for so long, my imagination creating a monster of grotesque features and proportions. But standing before me, his head tilted and eyes sharp, is just a man. Slightly balding, twenty pounds too heavy, whose mouth is turning into a sneer. Whose eyes are narrowing, stance strong, the combined effect sinister. This man, this balding thick man, has whispered in my ear, poured out the disgusting thoughts in his soul, showed me the dark evil in his heart. And now he is stepping closer, the excitement radiating from his body like a foul smell.
He thinks I am weak. He thinks he can manipulate me and subdue me. Kill me. He has no idea that my small frame and delicate features contain an evil that rivals his own. I finger the knife in my pocket and fight to keep a grin off my face.
This is it. This is my time. #Quote by Alessandra Torre
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Jen Hatmaker
#17. path of descent becomes our own liberation. We are freed from the exhausting stance of defense. We are no longer compelled to be right and are thus relieved from the burden of maintaining some reputation. We are released from the idols of greed, control, and status. The pressure to protect the house of cards is alleviated when we take the lowest place. #Quote by Jen Hatmaker
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Stanley Victor Paskavich
#18. In a valley betwixt two hills there I stood perfectly still. In this stance I did find the most beautiful secrets of my mind #Quote by Stanley Victor Paskavich
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Charlie Brooker
#19. Extremist material of any kind always looks gaudy and cheap, like a bad pizza menu. Not because they can't afford decent computers - these days you can knock up a professional CD cover on a pay-as-you-go mobile - but because anyone who's good at graphic design is likely to be a thoughtful, inquisitive sort by nature. And thoughtful, inquisitive sorts tend to think fascism is a bit shit, to be honest. If the BNP really were the greatest British party, they'd have the greatest British designer working for them - Jonathan Ive, perhaps, the man who designed the iPod. But they don't. They've got someone who tries to stab your eyes out with primary colours.
#Quote by Charlie Brooker
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Jonathan Dudley
#20. This has led evangelicals to ethnocentrism, to asserting their historically contingent cultural values as "biblical truth." In the conservative direction, this has closed off productive dialogue between evangelicals and mainline Christians on gay marriage - because if the Bible has an obvious stance on the matter, as most evangelicals believe, the other side must be intentionally denying the truth. In the liberal direction, this has led green evangelicals to ignore the role contemporary experiences and theology have played in their reinterpretation of the Bible on environmental matters. #Quote by Jonathan Dudley
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Jinkx Monsoon
#21. In my world, everything has the potential to be funny. Joyful things, painful things ... It's all about how you view it and if you're able to take an objective stance on the situation. #Quote by Jinkx Monsoon
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#22. Only the shallowest person believes that they can attain true happiness by maximizing their wealth at any cost. In absence of morality, ethics, and a sustainable philosophy to guide us in an ethical search for happiness, we will always perceive life's random countervailing forces of adversity and unpleasantness as inflicting a great personal injustice upon us. Through application of a deeply embedded personal philosophy, we can push back against the negative implications of a life of suffering. We can use a philosophical stance to gain the perspective needed to say 'yes' to all of life, both its rosy path of ineffable joys and a blackened trail of tears. We must learn to accept life as it truly is and not waste precious time in wistfulness. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#23. That reminds me, why were you letting Braga beat you?"

"What do you mean?"

"I saw you fighting when we first came up. Your stance was defensive, your strokes all parries and blocks. You never once attacked."

"I was frightened," Hadrian lied. "Braga has won so many awards and tournament competitions, and I haven't won any."

Pickering looked puzzled. "But not being noble born, you aren't allowed to enter a tournament."

Hadrian pursed his lips and nodded. "Now that you mention it, I suppose you're right. You'd best see to your wounds, Your Lordship. You're bleeding on your nice tunic. #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Dean Koontz
#24. My instinct is a winning coach, and when it said "Batter up,"I didn't argue that I wasn't ready for the game. I gripped the bat in both hands, assumed the stance, and said a prayer to Mickey Mantle. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Christina Hoff Sommers
#25. That is the corrosive paradox of gender feminism's misandrist stance: no group of women can wage war on men without at the same time denigrating the women who respect those men. #Quote by Christina Hoff Sommers
Inquisitive Stance quotes by H.W. Brands
#26. Franklin's inquisitive mind craved stimulation, consistently gravitating toward whatever community of intellects asked the most intriguing questions; his expansive temperament sought souls that resonated with his own generosity and sense of virtue. In five years in England he had found more of both than in a lifetime in America. "Of all the enviable things England has," he told Polly Stevenson, "I envy most its people. Why should that petty island, which compared to America is but like a stepping stone in a brook, scarce enough of it above water to keep one's shoes dry; why, I say, should that little island enjoy in almost every neighbourhood more sensible, virtuous and elegant minds than we can collect in ranging 100 leagues of our vast forests?" He left such people reluctantly and, he trusted, temporarily. #Quote by H.W. Brands
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Robert C. Thomas
#27. I strive that I should see each new day through my grandson's inquisitive eyes. #Quote by Robert C. Thomas
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Dominic Riccitello
#28. I'm a very intense person. The way I look in your eyes, my stance, how I walk and choose my words. The way I say your name and the look in my eye that says I need you here.

I have an extremely distinct aptitude for the way I present myself and the energy I give off. It sounds egocentric, but they always remember my name, my mind and the force behind my voice. #Quote by Dominic Riccitello
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Wendy Higgins
#29. Though it was a complete turn-on when she once grabbed a girl's arm backstage, saying, "Excuse me, but that is my husband you're trying to grope, and I suggest you keep your hands to yourself." She'd said it with Southern charm, but I could see in her stance that my girl had been ready to throw down.
I rewarded her well that night for saving me from the groper. #Quote by Wendy Higgins
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Mark Virkler
#30. The very best antidote for the New Age teachings is for Christians to enter into and live fully in the supernatural. This is certainly no time to draw back from supernatural living and retreat into a mere defense of orthodoxy. Because we have adopted this stance for the last half-century, we have opened the door for the New Age to fill the vacuum. There is a longing in the human heart for communication and a relationship with the Divine. Since the dawn of history, when God's people do not preach, proclaim, and model the genuine article, men and women will wander into whatever appears to offer the fulfillment of their spiritual quest. We need to cast aside our hesitation and proceed strongly forward, the Word and the Spirit as our unfailing guide. #Quote by Mark Virkler
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Marcel Proust
#31. Gilberte had still not come back to the Champs-Élysées. Yet I very much needed to set eyes on her, as I could not even remember her face. When we look at the person we love, our inquisitive, anxious, demanding gaze, our expectation of the words which will make us hope for (or despair of) another meeting tomorrow and, until those words are spoken, our obsession fluctuating between possible joy and sorrow, or imagining both of these together, all this distracts our tremulous attention and prevents it from getting a clear picture of the loved one. Also, it may be that this simultaneous activity of all the senses, striving to discover through the unaided eyes something that is out of their reach, is too mindful of the countless forms, all the savours and movements of the living person, all those things which, in a person with whom we are not in love, we immobilize. But the beloved model keeps moving; and the only snapshots we can take are always out of focus. I could not really say what the features of Gilberte's face were like, except at those heavenly moments when she was there, displaying them to me. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Pearl Zhu
#32. Digital leaders today need to become more inquisitive, creative, and informative. #Quote by Pearl Zhu
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Leon Kass
#33. The abortion controversy is important for what it says about our stance toward procreation and children altogether. #Quote by Leon Kass
Inquisitive Stance quotes by E.L. James
#34. And scared through my system - adrenaline mixed with lust and longing. It's a heady, potent cocktail. Christian's stance has changed completely, #Quote by E.L. James
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Stormie O'martian
#35. The enemy wants to steal our peace and keep us stirred up, anxious, fearful, upset, and always in a stance of waiting for something terrible to happen at any minute. #Quote by Stormie O'martian
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Joyce Rachelle
#36. For a storyteller, an open ending leaves much room for imagination; for the inquisitive reader, however, it is a source of great anxiety. #Quote by Joyce Rachelle
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#37. The sermon which I write inquisitive of truth is good a year after, but that which is written because a sermon must be writ is musty the next day. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Daryl Hannah
#38. And I know that the younger generation is doing things that are so ingenious. And for them it's not a matter of a political belief or an environmental stance. It's really just common sense. #Quote by Daryl Hannah
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Brandon Bays
#39. From Freedom is:
"True forgiveness is one of the most healing relasing, and freeing gifts we give to ourselves."

"You can't fake it (forgivenss). It has to come from an open heart. It has to be real. Otherwise it is pointless. In order to fruly forgive, you must be willing to open your heart and face and release the pain there."
"It requires humility. It requites us to give up our rightenous indignation, get off our soapbox, let go of blame, and le go of th pride of being right. It means we have to be willing to drop our victim story, soften our stance, and if necessary, let our heart be broken wide open." Brandon Bays Chapter 8 on forgiveness. #Quote by Brandon Bays
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Angela Y. Davis
#40. [If]…we are not afraid to adopt a revolutionary stance - if, indeed, we wish to be radical in our quest for change - then we must get to the root of our oppression. After all, radical simply means 'grasping things at the root.'" ~ #AngelaDavis, "Let Us All Rise Together #Quote by Angela Y. Davis
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Charles Frazier
#41. Bleak as the scene was, though, there was growing joy in Inman's heart. He was nearing home; he could feel it in the touch of thin air on skin, in his longing to see the lead of hearth smoke from the houses of people he had known all his life. People he would not be called upon to hate or fear. He rose and took a wide stance on the rock and stood and pinched down his eyes to sharpen the view across the vast propect to one far mountain. It stood apart from the sky only as the stroke of a poorly inked pen, a line thin and quick and gestural. But the shape slowly grew plain and unmistakable. It was to Cold Mountain he looked. He had achieved a vista of what for him was homeland. #Quote by Charles Frazier
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Paul Brady
#42. As breathing is to life, prayer is to the Church. The breath of life comes into us; prayer rises within us, and communion with God becomes the most normal thing that there is...

We are pray-ers!
Our life is a prayer!
Our stance in God is a prayer.
Our place in Him is a place of prayer!

Prayer is what we build into our lives.
Prayer is what we become!
We are an outworking of how we work with Him. #Quote by Paul Brady
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Martin Schulz
#43. The stubborn stance of some European governments on the refugee question is a reprisal less aimed at Angela Merkel or (Vice Chancellor) Sigmar Gabriel than at certain people on Wilhelmstrasse in Berlin. #Quote by Martin Schulz
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Benjamin Carson
#44. I'm a part of the GOP and let me tell you what my stance is. My stance is that, we the people have the responsibility to take care of the indigent in our society. It's not the government's job. You can read the Constitution all you want, it never says that it is the government's job and I think where we've gotten confused. #Quote by Benjamin Carson
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Misty Copeland
#45. I do think that it's a responsibility when there are so few of us as African Americans to kind of get to that place of success in a positive light. We should take a stance and stand for something and use that platform for positivity. #Quote by Misty Copeland
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Brent Weeks
#46. And so, nearly in sight of the capital of Ruthgar, they boarded the odd new skimmer that Ben-hadad had dubbed the Mighty Thruster.
Kip had shaken his head. Tisis had muttered, "Boys." Ferkudi had guffawed. Winsen had grinned. Cruxer had blushed and said, "you can't call it that."
"We're the Mighty," Ben-hadad said. "The propulsion units are thrusters, that's all". The damn liar.
"i guess you'll be the first man to ride the Mighty Thruster?", tisis asked.
His brown wrinkled. "That makes it sound..."
"Make sure you take a good wide stance, legs apart, or he'll thrown you."
"He? i didn't..."
"Do you need more instruction? Because I'm getting quite adept at riding a mighty thruster myself," she said.
Ben-hadad blanched.
"You'll want to make sure you have a good grip, and loosen up your hips a--"
"All right! All right!"
Hours later, they sped into the mouth of the Great River -- on the good skimmer Blue Falcon #Quote by Brent Weeks
Inquisitive Stance quotes by Brian Jacques
#47. Sometimes the gift of an inquisitive nature to the young can be greater than that of the wisdom which comes of age. #Quote by Brian Jacques
