Insight quotes by Ramana Maharshi
#1. Remaining quiet is what is called wisdom-insight. To remain quiet is to resolve the mind in the Self. Telepathy, knowing past, present and future happenings and clairvoyance do not constitute wisdom-insight. #Quote by Ramana Maharshi
Insight quotes by China Mieville
#2. How do you ... ? What is it you're doing?" he said to Vardy as the man took a breath, mid-insight. What do you call that? Billy thought. That reconstitutitive intelligence, berserker meme-splicing, seeing in nothings first patterns, then correspondence, then causality and dissident sense.
Vardy even smiled. "Paranoid," he said. "Theology. #Quote by China Mieville
Insight quotes by Jack Welch
#3. Your goal, in other words, should be to make your bosses smarter, your team more effective, and the whole company more competitive because of your energy, creativity, and insights. #Quote by Jack Welch
Insight quotes by Theophile Gautier
#4. It sometimes happens that a man who, up until now has believed himself to be gifted with perfect health, opens a medical book, either by chance or to pass the time, and on reading the pathological description of an illness, recognises that he is afflicted by it; enlightened by a fateful flash of insight, he feels at every symptom mentioned some obscure organ shuddering within him, or some hidden fibre of whose role in the body he had been unaware, and he pales as he realises that a death he thought was still a long way off is so imminent. #Quote by Theophile Gautier
Insight quotes by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
#5. Psychologists usually try to help people use insight and understanding to manage their behavior. However, neuroscience research shows that very few psychological problems are the result of defects in understanding; most originate in pressures from deeper regions in the brain that drive our perception and attention. When the alarm bell of the emotional brain keeps signaling that you are in danger, no amount of insight will silence it. #Quote by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
Insight quotes by Scott Turow
#6. The years roll on and life seems like this more and more, that choices don't really exit in the way I thought they would when I was a child and expected the regal power of adulthood to provide clarity and insight. #Quote by Scott Turow
Insight quotes by Shivanshu K. Srivastava
#7. The ocean of knowledge is profound and the deeper you dive, the more insight you will gain from it. #Quote by Shivanshu K. Srivastava
Insight quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#8. When we have insight into our inner world and what brings us happiness, then wordlessly, intuitively, we understand others. As though there were no longer a barrier defining the boundaries of our caring, we can feel close to others' experience of life. We see that when we are angry, there is an element of pain in the anger that is not different from the pain that others feel when they are angry. When we feel love, there is a distinct and special joy in that feeling. We come to know that this is the nature of love itself, and that other beings filled with love experience this same joy. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Insight quotes by Jo Nesbo
#9. Innocence walks hand-in-hand with ignorance. How insight never clarifies, only complicates. #Quote by Jo Nesbo
Insight quotes by Woody Allen
#10. I've gained no wisdom, no insight, no mellowing. I would make all the same mistakes again, today. #Quote by Woody Allen
Insight quotes by L. P. Jacks
#11. In its essence the Gospel is a call to make the experiment of comradeship, the experiment of fellowship, the experiment of trusting the heart of things, throwing self-care to the winds, in the sure and certain faith that you will not be deserted, forsaken nor betrayed, and that your ultimate interests are perfectly secure in the hands of the Great Companion. This insight is the center, the kernel, the growing point of the Christian religion, which, when we have it, all else is secure, and when we have it not, all else is precarious. #Quote by L. P. Jacks
Insight quotes by Blaise Pascal
#12. One has followed the other in an endless circle, for it is certain that as man's insight increases so he finds both wretchedness and greatness within himself. In a word man knows he is wretched. Thus he is wretched because he is so, but he is truly great because he knows it. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Insight quotes by Ronald H. Coase
#13. But a theory is not like an airline or bus timetable. We are not interested simply in the accuracy of its predictions. A theory also serves as a base for thinking. It helps us to understand what is going on by enabling us to organize our thoughts. Faced with a choice between a theory which predicts well but gives us little insight into how the system works and one which gives us this insight but predicts badly, I would choose the latter, and I am inclined to think that most economists would do the same. #Quote by Ronald H. Coase
Insight quotes by Anonymous
#14. Unlike information, it cannot be dispensed via blogs and Internet chatter. Since we are drowning in an ocean of information, the most precious commodity in modern society is wisdom. Without wisdom and insight, we are left to drift aimlessly and without purpose #Quote by Anonymous
Insight quotes by Alexander Gardner
#15. A very enjoyable meditation on the curious thing called 'Zen' -not the Japanese religious tradition but rather the Western clich of Zen that is embraced in advertising, self-help books, and much more ... Yamada, who is both a scholar of Buddhism and a student of archery, offers refreshing insight into Western stereotypes of Japan and Japanese culture, and how these are received in Japan. #Quote by Alexander Gardner
Insight quotes by Fredrik Backman
#16. And time is a curious thing. Most of us only live for the time that lies right ahead of us. A few days, weeks, years. One of the most painful moments in a person's life probably comes with the insight that an age has been reached when there is more to look back on than ahead. And when time no longer lies ahead of one, other things have to be lived for. memories, perhaps. #Quote by Fredrik Backman
Insight quotes by Brian Tracy
#17. The greatest million dollar insight I can give anybody is find a big problem and then solve it in a big way. #Quote by Brian Tracy
Insight quotes by Ekeh Joe Obinna
#18. The Mind Of A Visionary Can Travel To Paradise On Bear Foot. #Quote by Ekeh Joe Obinna
Insight quotes by Anais Nin
#19. I always run away from the simplest phrases because they never contain all of the truth. To me the truth is something which cannot be told in a few words, and those who simplify the universe only reduce the expansion of its meaning. #Quote by Anais Nin
Insight quotes by Nhat Hanh
#20. You cannot transmit wisdom and insight to another person. The seed is already there. A good teacher touches the seed, allowing it to wake up, to sprout, and to grow. #Quote by Nhat Hanh
Insight quotes by Otto Lilienthal
#21. One can get a proper insight into the practice of flying only by actual flying experiments ... The manner in which we have to meet the irregularities of the wind, when soaring in the air, can only be learnt by being in the air itself ... The only way which leads us to a quick development in human flight is a systematic and energetic practice in actual flying experiments. #Quote by Otto Lilienthal
Insight quotes by Meraaqi
#22. I want to
peel away all the labels
I had once given to others
and place them
upon the fabric
of my own identity.

They have reflected back to me,
everything that I refuse
to See in myself. #Quote by Meraaqi
Insight quotes by Nikki Rowe
#23. I find myself enjoying being alone a lot of the time, people come and people go and you have to find a way to be ok with both. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Insight quotes by Allison Schrager
#24. Unusual markets often provide the clearest insight into how risk is assessed, bought, and sold. Because nothing is hidden in markets like sex work, the subtleties that exist in all markets are made obvious. This is why we can learn the most by studying how business is conducted at the edges of the economy and apply that knowledge to more typical economic transactions. #Quote by Allison Schrager
Insight quotes by Anonymous
#25. Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long.
Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever with me.
I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes.
I have more understanding than the elders, for I obey your precepts.
How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Psalms 119:97-100, 103 #Quote by Anonymous
Insight quotes by Phil Dusenberry
#26. In the advertising business, a good idea can inspire a great commercial. But a good insight can fuel a thousand ideas, a thousand commercials. #Quote by Phil Dusenberry
Insight quotes by Carl Zimmer
#27. The extra clutter adds no important insight; instead, it offers more clutter in which erros can lurk. #Quote by Carl Zimmer
Insight quotes by Charles Stanley
#28. Thank the Lord for using each person as a tool in your life to deepen your insight into His grace and conforming you to the image of His Son. #Quote by Charles Stanley
Insight quotes by Landon Donovan
#29. I've always thought it would be interesting to give insight on soccer because I have a lot of experience in my career. #Quote by Landon Donovan
Insight quotes by Daniel Crevier
#30. The insight at the root of artificial intelligence was that these "bits" (manipulated by computers) could just as well stand as symbols for concepts that the machine would combine by the strict rules of logic or the looser associations of psychology. #Quote by Daniel Crevier
Insight quotes by Lindsay Patton
#31. Being a writer, I'd never judged a book by its cover, but I suppose that the way a book carried itself gave you a bit of an insight on what was on the inside. #Quote by Lindsay Patton
Insight quotes by Robert D. Richardson
#32. Just as science is more immediate and exciting than the history of science, so is insight more compelling than a history of insight. #Quote by Robert D. Richardson
Insight quotes by Harlan Ellison
#33. The only thing worth writing about is people. People. Human beings. Men and women whose individuality must be created, line by line, insight by insight. If you do not do it, the story is a failure. [ ... ] There is no nobler chore in the universe than holding up the mirror of reality and turning it slightly, so we have a new and different perception of the commonplace, the everyday, the 'normal', the obvious. People are reflected in the glass. The fantasy situation into which you thrust them is the mirror itself. And what we are shown should illuminate and alter our perception of the world around us. Failing that, you have failed totally. #Quote by Harlan Ellison
Insight quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#34. Time passes regardless of how we use it; we grow old whether we act or procrastinate. A person who is unwilling to work to accomplishing worthy goals and who does not dream of performing great feats will always be mediocre. A courageous soul works conscientiously to accomplish personal goals that benefit other people. I aspire to find the audacity to create a self that I am not ashamed of being and live a humble and worthy life. The seer never wants for anything but an opportunity to learn and rejoice in life. Every day is a proper day to begin or continue a vision quest to attain insight. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Insight quotes by Buzz Aldrin
#35. Exploring and colonizing Mars can bring us new scientific understanding of climate change, of how planet-wide processes can make a warm and wet world into a barren landscape. By exploring and understanding Mars, we may gain key insights into the past and future of our own world. #Quote by Buzz Aldrin
Insight quotes by Chip Heath
#36. One of IDEO's designers even sketched out a "project mood chart" that predicts how people will feel at different phases of a project. It's a U-shaped curve with a peak of positive emotion, labeled "hope," at the beginning, and a second peak of positive emotion, labeled "confidence," at the end. In between the two peaks is a negative emotional valley labeled "insight. #Quote by Chip Heath
Insight quotes by Terry Tempest Williams
#37. We write out of our humanity by writing through our direct experience. That which is most personal is most general, which becomes both our insight and protection as a writers. This is our authority as women, as human beings. #Quote by Terry Tempest Williams
Insight quotes by Garret Keizer
#38. If you can sustain the insight that people are doing the best they can
if you can maintain some faith that this is an insight
you're solid. If not, maybe you should pack it in. #Quote by Garret Keizer
Insight quotes by Anthony Lawlor
#39. The pleasure of the soul appears to be found in the journey of discovery, the unfolding revelation of expanded insight and experience. #Quote by Anthony Lawlor

Insight quotes by D.R. Khashaba
#41. The ruinous abdication by philosophy of its rightful domain is the consequence of the oblivion of philosophers to a great insight first beheld clearly by Socrates and re-affirmed by Kant as by no other philosopher. Science, concerned solely and exclusively with objective existents, cannot give answers to questions about meanings and values. Only ideas engendered by the mind and to be found nowhere but in the mind (Socrates), only the pure transcendental forms supplied by reason (Kant), can secure the ideals and values and put us in touch with the realities that constitute our moral and spiritual life. Twenty-four centuries after Socrates, two centuries after Kant, we badly need to re-learn the lesson. #Quote by D.R. Khashaba
Insight quotes by Ronald Reagan
#42. Our Founding Fathers well understood that concentrated power is the enemy of liberty and the rights of man. They knew that the American experiment in individual liberty, free enterprise and republican self-government could succeed only if power were widely distributed. And since in any society social and political power flow from economic power, they saw that wealth and property would have to be widely distributed among the people of the country. The truth of this insight is immediately apparent. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Insight quotes by Peter Matthiessen
#43. Zen has been called the "religion before religion," which is to say that anyone can practice, including those committed to another faith. And that phrase evokes that natural religion of our early childhood, when heaven and a splendorous earth were one. But soon the child's clear eye is clouded over by ideas and opinions, preconceptions and abstractions. Not until years later does an instinct come that a vital sense of mystery has been withdrawn. The sun glints through the pines, and the heart is pierced in a moment of beauty and strange pain, like a memory of paradise. After that day, at the bottom of each breath, there is a hollow place filled with longing. We become seekers without knowing that we seek, and at first, we long for something "greater" than ourselves, something apart and far away. It is not a return to childhood, for childhood is not a truly enlightened state. Yet to seek one's own true nature is "a way to lead you to your long lost home." To practice Zen means to realize one's existence moment after moment, rather than letting life unravel in regret of the past and daydreaming of the future. To "rest in the present" is a state of magical simplicity...out of the emptiness can come a true insight into our natural harmony all creation. To travel this path, one need not be a 'Zen Buddhist', which is only another idea to be discarded like 'enlightenment,' and like 'the Buddha' and like 'God. #Quote by Peter Matthiessen
Insight quotes by James Martin
#44. Merton wrote, "Every one of us is shadowed by an illusory person: the false self." With his typical insight, Merton identifies the false self as the person that we wish to present to the world, and the person we want the whole world to revolve around: Thus #Quote by James Martin
Insight quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#45. If God the Father and God the Son use light, knowledge, insight, understanding and wisdom to function on the earth, it means that is the greatest power in existence. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Insight quotes by Elmar Hussein
#46. İt is not true that the more you read, the more intelligent you become. Without thinking you cannot be intelligent. You need to think in order to avoid ready-form answers, which can satisfy the inquisitive mind, but cannot give a clear insight into anything, making the brain only some kind of container of various information similar to the microchip of robot or computer. You would become a social robot whose brain contains various information but cannot think. That is why most men know a lot, but learn nothing from that knowledge. Most men know a lot, but can understand nothing on the base of that knowledge. However, it is not also true that the more you think, the more intelligent you become. Without reading you cannot be intelligent. You need to read, especially scientific literature, in order to model any problem which fascinates your mind in a proper and clear way. There cannot be vacuum in the human mind, if there is no scientific rationality there, then mystical irrationality would cover the whole space in your mind. There is no need to emphasize that being under the strong influence of mystical irrationality would confuse your mind more and more. But if scientific rationality appears, mystical irrationality disappears immediately. #Quote by Elmar Hussein
Insight quotes by Jim Elliot
#47. What good are Greek, commentaries, insight, gift, and all the rest, if there is no heart for Christ? #Quote by Jim Elliot
Insight quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#48. I'm simply interested in what is going to happen next. I don't think I can control my life or my writing. Every other writer I know feels he is steering himself, and I don't have that feeling. I don't have that sort of control. I'm simply becoming. I'm startled that I became a writer. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Insight quotes by Matthew Arnold
#49. Thou waitest for the spark from heaven! and we, Light half-believers in our casual deeds ... Who hesitate and falter life away, And lose tomorrow the ground won today- Ah, do not we, Wanderer, await it too? #Quote by Matthew Arnold
Insight quotes by Diane Ackerman
#50. Invisible prose only!" rules out the sparkling style of [writers] ... For [whom] vivid prose, and the visionary mind it evinces, rich with speculation, insight, and subjectivity, is the craft and offers a unique caliber of truth. Is there any other art form one would praise by saying it's "invisible"? By definition, art transcends the ordinary, calls attention to itself, and offers virtuosity as its calling card. One that makes it possible to do what metaphor does so well: illuminate what can't be wholly understood. #Quote by Diane Ackerman
Insight quotes by Gary Hamel
#51. **New business concepts are always, always the product of lucky foresight.**
That's right - the essential insight doesn't come out of any dirigiste planning process; it comes form some cocktail of happenstance, desire, curiosity, ambition and need. But at the end of the day, there has to be a degree of foresight
a sense of where new riches lie. So radical innovation is always one part fortuity and one part clearheaded vision.
[first-line bold by author]
[2002] p.23 #Quote by Gary Hamel
Insight quotes by Wayne Teasdale
#52. Interspirituality is essentially an agent of a universal mysticism and integral spirituality. We often walk the interspiritual or intermystical path in an intuitive attempt to reach a more complete truth. That final integration, a deep convergence, is an integral spirituality. Bringing together all the great systems of spiritual wisdom, practice, insight, reflection, experience, and science provides a truly integral understanding of spirituality in its practical application in our lives, regardless of our tradition. #Quote by Wayne Teasdale
Insight quotes by Beth Moore
#53. If I die suddenly, my gravestone might appropriately offer this insight into my departure: "God got tired." I require lots of work. #Quote by Beth Moore
Insight quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#54. Books, which we mistake for consolation, only add depth to our sorrow. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Insight quotes by Yukio Mishima
#55. At no time are we ever in such complete possession of a journey, down to its last nook and cranny, as when we are busy with preparations for it. #Quote by Yukio Mishima
Insight quotes by Michelle J. Sorensen
#56. As in other Buddhist Tantric techniques, recommended preliminaries for these practices include developing skill at both calm-abiding (zhi gnas; śamatha) and insight meditation (lhag mthong; vipaśyanā). As in earlier Buddhist teachings, many Chöd dehadāna practices emphasize renunciation, purification, and self-transformation through the accumulation of merit and the exhaustion of demerit. Rather than suggesting that one must wait to accumulate adequate merit before offering the gift of the body, however, Chöd provides the opportunity for immediately efficacious offering of the body through techniques of visualization. Using a technique which echoes the traditional Buddhist teaching of the of the mind-made body (manomayākāya), the practitioner engages in visualizations which allow her to experience the non-duality of agent and object as she offers her body.

The process of giving the body as a means of attainment is commonly articulated in Chöd practice texts (sgrub pa; sādhana). These practice texts exhibit the framework of mature Tantra sādhana, including the stages of generating bodhicitta, going for refuge, meditating on the four immeasurables, and making the eight-limbed offering. Generally speaking, the main section of a developed Chöd sādhana has three components. The first two - a transference of consciousness (nam mkha' sgo 'byed) practice, and a body maṇḍala (lus dkyil) practice - have distinctly purifying purposes. The Chöd transference of consciousness pr #Quote by Michelle J. Sorensen
Insight quotes by Michael Meade
#57. In the end, as at the beginning, the divine turns out to be most interested in the unique life of the individual soul. That's what was meant by the old idea that "inside people is where god learns." This is not a religious notion, but more of a spiritual insight. For this conversation god is simply the shortest way to refer to the divine. When a unique life becomes fully livedeveryone involved learns something and it becomes clear that god was involved all along. #Quote by Michael Meade
Insight quotes by Emma Watson
#58. The character is everything that I felt strongly against - she's superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral. She's all of these things and I realized that I hated her. How do you play someone you hate? But I found it really interesting, and it gave me a whole new insight into what my job, or my role as an actress, could be. #Quote by Emma Watson
Insight quotes by Rollo May
#59. A dynamic struggle goes on within a person between what he or she consciously thinks on the one hand and, on the other, some insight, some perspective that is struggling to be born. #Quote by Rollo May
Insight quotes by Nick Hornby
#60. I've committed to nothing ... and that's just suicide ... by tiny, tiny increments. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Insight quotes by Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha
#61. To fulfill your vision, you must have hindsight, insight and foresight. #Quote by Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha
Insight quotes by Keith R.A. DeCandido
#62. She's one you *really* care about, isn't she?"
Eliot shook his head. "How can you read other people so well, and completely misread me?"
Frowning, Sophie asked, "What do you mean?"
Looking right into her eyes, Eliot said, "I care about *all* of them. #Quote by Keith R.A. DeCandido
Insight quotes by James Berardinelli
#63. Being snarky and smug doesn't equate to providing insight, and there's more than one occasion when the filmmakers lose sight of this in their zeal to spread the Gospel According to Maher. #Quote by James Berardinelli
Insight quotes by Minor White
#64. Insight, vision, moments of revelation. During those rare moments something overtakes the man and he becomes the tool of a greater Force; the servant of, willing or unwilling depending on his degree of awakeness. The photograph, then, is a message more than a mirror, and the mans a messenger who happens to be a photographer. #Quote by Minor White
Insight quotes by Charlie Munger
#65. We have to have a special insight, or we'll put it in the 'too tough' basket. All of you have to look for a special area of competency and focus on that. #Quote by Charlie Munger
Insight quotes by Paul Harding
#66. The flowers Howard now walked among were the few last heirs to that brief local span of disaster and regeneration and he felt close to the sort of secrets he often caught himself wondering about, the revelations of which he only ever realized he had been in the proximity of after he became conscious of that proximity, and that phenomenon , of becoming conscious, was the very thing that whisked him away, so that any bit of insight or afterglow that remained but that was not accessible through words. He thought, But what about through grass and flowers and light and shadow? #Quote by Paul Harding
Insight quotes by Karin Slaughter
#67. Books give us insight into other people, other cultures. They make us laugh. They make us think. If they are really good, they make us believe that we are better for having read them. You don't read a book - you experience it. Every story opens up a new world. #Quote by Karin Slaughter
Insight quotes by Jennifer James
#68. Insight is 'mental vision,' one of the ways in which the mind escapes the limits of the obvious or the familiar. #Quote by Jennifer James
Insight quotes by Bette Davis
#69. Without wonder and insight, acting is just a trade. With it, it becomes creation. #Quote by Bette Davis
Insight quotes by Brene Brown
#70. We can't pack down hurt, nor can we off-load it to someone else while maintaining our authenticity and integrity. Most of us have been on the receiving end of one of these outbursts. Even if we have the insight to know that our boss, friend, colleague, or partner blew up at us because something tender was triggered and it's not actually about us, it still shatters trust and respect. Living, growing up, working, or worshipping on eggshells creates huge cracks in our sense of safety and self-worth. Over time, it can be experienced as trauma. #Quote by Brene Brown
Insight quotes by Martha Beck
#71. A true leader is not someone who feels fully informed but someone who continuously receives insight and guidance. #Quote by Martha Beck
Insight quotes by Debra L. Kaplan
#72. The initial journey towards sobriety is a delicate balance between insight into one's desire for escape and abstinence from one's addiction. #Quote by Debra L. Kaplan
Insight quotes by Karen Maezen Miller
#73. Your life is your practice. Your spiritual practice does not occur someplace other than in your life right now, and your life is nowhere other than where you are. You are looking for answers, insight, and wisdom that you already possess. Live the life in front of you, be the life you are, and see what you find out for yourself. #Quote by Karen Maezen Miller
Insight quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#74. In his book The Captive Mind, written in 1951-2 and published in the West in 1953, the Polish poet and essayist Czeslaw Milosz paid Orwell one of the greatest compliments that one writer has ever bestowed upon another. Milosz had seen the Stalinisation of Eastern Europe from the inside, as a cultural official. He wrote, of his fellow-sufferers:

A few have become acquainted with Orwell's 1984; because it is both difficult to obtain and dangerous to possess, it is known only to certain members of the Inner Party. Orwell fascinates them through his insight into details they know well, and through his use of Swiftian satire. Such a form of writing is forbidden by the New Faith because allegory, by nature manifold in meaning, would trespass beyond the prescriptions of socialist realism and the demands of the censor. Even those who know Orwell only by hearsay are amazed that a writer who never lived in Russia should have so keen a perception into its life.

Only one or two years after Orwell's death, in other words, his book about a secret book circulated only within the Inner Party was itself a secret book circulated only within the Inner Party. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Insight quotes by Dana Gioia
#75. How many voices have escaped you until now, the venting furnace, the floorboards underfoot, the steady accusations of the clock numbering the minutes no one will mark. The terrible clarity this moment brings, the useless insight, the unbroken dark. #Quote by Dana Gioia
Insight quotes by Ron Franscell
#76. Absorbing and haunting! BOGEYMAN spills creepily across the page with Steve Jackson's hellacious verve and insight, reminding us there are few better explorers of the American berserk. #Quote by Ron Franscell
Insight quotes by Nancy Gibbs
#77. The days of the Pentagon Papers debates seem long past, when a sudden transparency yielded insight into fights over war and peace and freedom and security; the transparency afforded by Twitter and Facebook yields insights that extend no further than a lawmaker's boundless narcissism and a culture's pitiless prurience. #Quote by Nancy Gibbs
Insight quotes by Karen Armstrong
#78. Anybody who imagines that revealed religion requires a craven clinging to a fixed, unalterable, and self-evident truth should read the rabbis. Midrash required them to "investigate" and "go in search" of fresh insight. The rabbis used the old scriptures not to retreat into the past but to propel them into the uncertainties of the post-temple world. #Quote by Karen Armstrong
Insight quotes by Seth Godin
#79. Perhaps marketing is about to transition to a new kind of profession, one that requires insight, dedication and smarts. #Quote by Seth Godin
Insight quotes by Andy Miller
#80. However, although The Da Vinci Code did a whole heap of things defectively, it did one thing stupefyingly well - the plot. It was as though Brown had jettisoned all traces of style and credibility from his novel because he had realised, in a flash of Leonardo-like scientific insight, that style and credibility were the very properties preventing his theoretical story-balloon from taking flight. So they had been tossed over the side, along with beauty, truth and five hundred years of literary progress. #Quote by Andy Miller
Insight quotes by Elizabeth Janeway
#81. I am not sure how many "sins" I would recognize in the world. Some would surely be defused by changed circumstances. But I can imagine none that is more irredeemably sinful than the betrayal, the exploitation, of the young by those who should care for them. #Quote by Elizabeth Janeway
Insight quotes by Caroline Kaufman
#82. right now, I am a rough draft;
I am here to be
revisited and revised.
hard as I try,
I am not the girl poets speak of.
I am not made up of ocean tides
and my heart is not a crystal drum;
it will always be a weapon
more than anything.
I am an incomplete masterpiece,
full of crossed-out words and changes.
no one ever calls the first draft beautiful,
and I will never be the final piece. #Quote by Caroline Kaufman
Insight quotes by Tom Wolfe
#83. We must be careful to make a distinction between the intellectual and the person of intellectual achievement. The two are very, very different animals. There are people of intellectual achievement who increase the sum of human knowledge, the powers of human insight, and analysis. And then there are the intellectuals. An intellectual is a person knowledgeable in one field who speaks out only in others. Starting in the early twentieth century, for the first time an ordinary storyteller, a novelist, a short story writer, a poet, a playwright, in certain cases a composer, an artist, or even an opera singer could achieve a tremendous eminence by becoming morally indignant about some public issue. It required no intellectual effort whatsoever. Suddenly he was elevated to a plane from which he could look down upon ordinary people. Conversely - this fascinates me - conversely, if you are merely a brilliant scholar, merely someone who has added immeasurably to the sum of human knowledge and the powers of human insight, that does not qualify you for the eminence of being an intellectual. #Quote by Tom Wolfe
Insight quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#84. No wonder that tantra is so popular today in the West: it offers the ultimate "spiritual logic of late capitalism" uniting spirituality and earthly pleasures, transcendence and material benefits, divine experience and unlimited shopping. It propagates the permanent transgression of all rules, the violation of all taboos, instant gratification as the path to enlightenment; it overcomes old-fashioned "binary" thought, the dualism of mind and body, in claiming that the body at its most material (the site of sex and lust) is the royal path to spiritual awakening. Bliss comes from "saying yes" to all bodily needs, not from denying them: spiritual perfection comes from the insight that we already are divine and perfect, not that we have to achieve this through effort and discipline. The body is not something to be cultivated or crafted into an expression of spiritual truths, rather it is immediately the "temple for expressing divinity. #Quote by Slavoj Zizek
Insight quotes by Clifford A. Pickover
#85. Books on scientific photography with such beauty, breadth, and insight are rare. Felice Frankel's Envisioning Science is chock full of mind-boggling images and valuable information
not only for curious artists, students, and lay people, but also for seasoned researchers and photographers. The eclectic Frankel is both a scientist and photographer, and with the cold logic of the one and the inspired vision of the other, she covers an array of topics sure to stimulate your imagination and sense of wonder at the incredible vastness of the physical world. #Quote by Clifford A. Pickover

Insight quotes by David McCullough
#87. History is a guide to navigation in perilous times. History is who we are and why we are the way we are. #Quote by David McCullough
Insight quotes by Ed Catmull
#88. Consolidate What's Been Learned While it is true that you learn the most in the midst of a project, the lessons are not generally coherent. Any individual can have a great insight but may not have the time to pass it on. A process might be flawed, but you don't have time to fix it under the current schedule. Sitting down afterward is a way of consolidating all that you've learned - before you forget it. Postmortems are a rare opportunity to do analysis that simply wasn't possible in the heat of the project. #Quote by Ed Catmull
Insight quotes by Joseph Deitch
#89. The "answer" doesn't come in a formula or a one-sentence aphorism. Rather, the path to ongoing enlightenment begins by loosening our death grip on our opinions, beliefs, and ingrained behavior. When we let go, we create space to let in new insights and observations - we explore, we expand, and we become more aware. Letting go and opening up allows us to confront repressed feelings and fears, and allows love and compassion to flourish. That's why one person's "answer" might offer little insight to someone else. #Quote by Joseph Deitch
Insight quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough

Insight quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#92. It's true that if your religion failed to deliver a miracle, that a human sacrifice would certainly follow."
"Ah ... quite. You are a man of acute insight."
"That's not insight. That's a personal guarantee. #Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold
Insight quotes by Geoffrey O'Brien
#93. The age of recording is necessarily an age of nostalgia
when was the past so hauntingly accessible?
but its bitterest insight is the incapacity of even the most perfectly captured sound to restore the moment of its first inscribing. That world is no longer there. #Quote by Geoffrey O'Brien
Insight quotes by Thomas Ligotti
#94. This, then, is the ultimate, that is only, consolation: simply that someone shares some of your own feelings and has made of these a work of art which you have the insight, sensitivity, and - like it or not - peculiar set of experiences to appreciate. Amazing thing to say, the consolation of horror in art is that it actually intensifies our panic, loudens it on the sounding-board of our horror-hollowed hearts, turns terror up full blast, all the while reaching for that perfect and deafening amplitude at which we may dance to the bizarre music of our own misery. #Quote by Thomas Ligotti
Insight quotes by Willis Carto
#95. The nationalist, however loves his own kind as the extension of his family, realizing that universal values are primitive values or no values at all; that men can be free and content only within their native cultural environment. This profound insight completely escapes the immature internationalists. The nationalist seeks peace - not the peace of the pacifist or the slave but the peace of the free and independent. He believes in nonaggression, nonintervention and neutrality whereas the internationalist sees every dispute anywhere in the world as an excuse for the raising of an army, the floating of a bond issue and the raising of taxes - letting the suckers, of course, do the fighting, the buying of bonds and the paying of taxes. Nationalism is the only sane approach to the problem of world
peace in an increasingly crazy and dangerous world. It is the spirit
of live and let live, the healthy ethic of self-respect, racial integrity
and conscientious concern for the rights of others. #Quote by Willis Carto
Insight quotes by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
#96. The ignorant man is not free, because what confronts him is an alien world, something outside him and in the offing, on which he depends, without his having made this foreign world for himself and therefore without being at home in it by himself as in something his own. The impulse of curiosity, the pressure for knowledge, from the lowest level up to the highest rung of philosophical insight arises only from the struggle to cancel this situation of unfreedom and to make the world one's own in one's ideas and thought. #Quote by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
Insight quotes by Bill Gates
#97. China has many successful entrepreneurs and business people. I hope that more people of insight will put their talents to work to improve the lives of poor people in China and around the world, and seek solutions for them. #Quote by Bill Gates
Insight quotes by Janet Evanovich
#98. Omigod,' I said on a sudden flash of sleep-deprived insight. 'You're the big bad wolf.'
There are some similarities. #Quote by Janet Evanovich
Insight quotes by Molly Ringwald
#99. When it happens to you, you will be surprised. That thing they say about how you knew all the time but just weren't facing it? That might be the case, but nevertheless, there you will be. You will feel like you have been kicked in the stomach, that your insides have just separated to make room for something big. #Quote by Molly Ringwald
Insight quotes by Richard Eyre
#100. If the arts are held up solely as a means of social insight, fantasy is denied the chance to be commonplace and reality the chance to be exotic. #Quote by Richard Eyre
Insight quotes by Asvaghosa
#101. When one is rising, standing, walking, doing something, stopping, one should constantly concentrate one's mind on the act and the doing of it, not one ones' relation to the act or its character or value ... One should simply practice concentration of the mind on the act itself, understanding it to be an expedient means for attaining tranquility of mind, realization, insight, and wisdom. #Quote by Asvaghosa
Insight quotes by Mark Haddon
#102. No one wants to know how clever you are. They don't want an insight into your mind, thrilling as it might be. They want an insight into their own. #Quote by Mark Haddon
Insight quotes by Andrew McMahon
#103. I have found that searching for insight is more often than not a path to total darkness #Quote by Andrew McMahon
Insight quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#104. Listen with Ease Have you ever sat very silently, not with your attention fixed on anything, not making an effort to concentrate, but with the mind very quiet, really still? Then you hear everything, don't you? You hear the far off noises as well as those that are nearer and those that are very close by, the immediate sounds - which means really that you are listening to everything. Your mind is not confined to one narrow little channel. If you can listen in this way, listen with ease, without strain, you will find an extraordinary change taking place within you, a change that comes without your volition, without your asking; and in that change there is great beauty and depth of insight. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Insight quotes by Sherry Thomas
#105. You've changed, Fitz.'
'It's been eight years. Everyone changes.'
'I haven't changed.'
The insight came to him like a match flaring. 'I can see how you've tried to remain the same. But no, you have changed, too. Once you thrilled to new horizons. Now all you want is to live in a monument to the way things might have been. #Quote by Sherry Thomas
Insight quotes by Alison Bechdel
#106. It's our very capacity for self-consciousness that makes us self-destructive! #Quote by Alison Bechdel
Insight quotes by Jason Versey
#107. I believe a man's finest hour often comes when he is at his weakest. When he is broken, affronted and at a place of great emotional transparency. It's there he has the rare insight of an inescapable truth…he's merely a man. As his bravado washes away into a puddle of reflective tears, it reveals that he is merely flesh, blood and bones and amounts to very little without the love and guidance of our creator. It's only then, that I believe, a man begins to truly find his way. #Quote by Jason Versey
Insight quotes by Howard Thurman
#108. [A] strange necessity has been laid upon me to devote my life to the central concern that transcends the walls that divide and would achieve in literal fact what is experienced as literal truth: human life is one and all men are members of one another. And this insight is spiritual and it is the hard core of religious experience. #Quote by Howard Thurman
Insight quotes by Joan Marques
#109. Happiness is something we can find inside once we have obtained the insight that it will never come in sight if we look for it outside. #Quote by Joan Marques
Insight quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#110. Tom's theory of why human beings had yet to receive any message from extraterrestrial intelligences was that all civilizations, without exception, blew themselves up almost as soon as they were able to get a message out, never lasting more than a few decades in a galaxy whose age was billions; blinking in and out of existence so fast that, even if the galaxy abounded with earthlike planets, the chances of one civilization sticking around to get a message from another were vanishingly low, because it was too damned easy to split the atom. #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Insight quotes by Gautama Buddha
#111. Analyzing through special insight and realizing the lack of inherent existence constitute understanding of the signless. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Insight quotes by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
#112. Facts are the enemy of truth. #Quote by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
Insight quotes by Hamza Yusuf
#113. Modesty becomes blameworthy if it prevents one from denouncing what clearly should be denounced, such as tyranny or corruption. This form of modesty results in meekness at a time when one needs to be forthright and courageous. Something condemnable (munkar) is condemnable regardless of the status of the person who is engaged in it - whether he or she is a close relative or a person of status, wealth, or authority. There must be agreement, however, among scholars on what is condemnable. One cannot, for example, declare decisively that something is considered condemnable if there is a difference of opinion on it among the scholars. Scholars knowledgeable of the plentitude of juristic differences rarely condemn others. They refrain from such condemnation not because of modesty but because of their extensive knowledge and scholarly insight. Unfortunately, many people today are swift to condemn, which creates another disease: self-righteousness. #Quote by Hamza Yusuf
Insight quotes by Jonathan Abrams
#114. Lance Reddick: I was alone with David, and we just got to talking. I asked him something. I remember him saying organizations can't be reformed, but people can. I rememeber being struck by it when he said it, because I knew that I had never thought of it that way, and I knew that there was something profound in the insight. Then, over time, particularly when I watched the show, I realized how we see both on the criminal side and on the police side, you see people struggling to live up to the codes of the institutions that they're a part of and seeing how it chips away at their humanity. #Quote by Jonathan Abrams
Insight quotes by Margaret J. Wheatley
#115. The two skills of the warrior are compassion and insight. Compassion is easy - it arises spontaneously from an open heart. Insight or discernment requires more skill. We have to choose our battles. #Quote by Margaret J. Wheatley
Insight quotes by Rodney Stark
#116. Leading Christian theologians such as Augustine and Aquinas were not what today might be called 'strict constructionists.' Rather, they celebrated reason as the means to gain greater insight into divine intentions. #Quote by Rodney Stark

#117. Ontario is fortunate to have the expertise, insight and leadership of The Honourable David C. Onley. I look forward to working with him to promote an inclusive, accessible Ontario that will help strengthen our province's economy. #Quote by Brad Duguid
Insight quotes by Davy Jones
#118. I read a whole bunch of bits and pieces over the years, obviously from the fan magazines and the rest of the stuff, and I just wanted to give a little more insight into what's happening in my personal life. #Quote by Davy Jones
Insight quotes by Alice Walker
#119. HELPED are those who are content to be themselves; they will never lack mystery in their lives and the joys of self-discovery will be constant.
HELPED are those who love the entire cosmos rather than their own tiny country, city, or farm, for to them will be shown the unbroken web of life and the meaning of infinity.
HELPED are those who live in quietness, knowing neither brand name nor fad; they shall live every day as if in eternity, and each moment shall be as full as it is long.
HELPED are those who love others unsplit off from their faults; to them will be given clarity of vision.
HELPED are those who create anything at all, for they shall relive the thrill of their own conception, and realize an partnership in the creation of the Universe that keeps them responsible and cheerful.
HELPED are those who love the Earth, their mother, and who willingly suffer that she may not die; in their grief over her pain they will weep rivers of blood, and in their joy in her lively response to love, they will converse with the trees.
HELPED are those whose ever act is a prayer for harmony in the Universe, for they are the restorers of balance to our planet. To them will be given the insight that every good act done anywhere in the cosmos welcomes the life of an animal or a child.
HELPED are those who risk themselves for others' sakes; to them will be given increasing opportunities for ever greater risks. Theirs will be a vision of the word in which no #Quote by Alice Walker
Insight quotes by Francis Collins
#120. Addressing the conclusions of The God Delusion point by point with the devastating insight of a molecular biologist turned theologian, Alister McGrath dismantles the argument that science should lead to atheism, and demonstrates instead that Dawkins has abandoned his much-cherished rationality to embrace an embittered manifesto of dogmatic atheist fundamentalism. #Quote by Francis Collins
Insight quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#121. Buddha taught, "Breathing in, I recognize my feeling. Breathing out, I calm my feeling." If you practice this, not only will your feeling be calmed down but the energy of mindfulness will also help you see into the nature and roots of your anger. Mindfulness helps you be concentrated and look deeply. This is true meditation. The insight will come after some time of practice. You will see the truth about yourself and the truth about the person who you thought to be the cause of your suffering. This insight will release you from your anger and transform the roots of anger in you. The transformation in you will also help transform the other person. Mindful speaking can bring real happiness, and unmindful speech can kill. When someone tells us something that makes us happy, that is a wonderful gift. But sometimes someone says something to us that is so cruel and distressing that we feel like committing suicide. We lose our joie de vivre. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
Insight quotes by Leo Buscaglia
#122. What we need to know about loving is no great mystery. We all know what constitutes loving behavior; we need but act upon it, not continually question it. Over-analysis often confuses the issue and in the end brings us no closer to insight. We sometimes become too busy classifying, separating, and examining, to remember that love is easy. It's we who make it complicated. #Quote by Leo Buscaglia
Insight quotes by Father Walter J. Ciszek
#123. It is a mistake easily made by every man, saint or scholar, Church leader or day laborer. Ultimately, we come to expect God to accept our understanding of what his will ought to be and to help us fulfill that, instead of learning to see and accept his will in the real situations in which he places us daily. The simple soul who each day makes a morning offering of "all the prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day" - and who then acts upon it by accepting unquestioningly and responding lovingly to all the situations of the day as truly sent by God - has perceived with an almost childlike faith the profound truth about the will of God. To predict what God's will is going to be, to rationalize about what his will must be, is at once a work of human folly and yet the subtlest of all temptations. The plain and simple truth is that his will is that he actually wills to send us each day, in the way of circumstances, places, people, and problems. The trick is to learn to see that - not just in theory, or not just occasionally in a flash of insight granted by God's grace, but every day. #Quote by Father Walter J. Ciszek
Insight quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#124. The twenty-first century will be a time of awakening, of meeting the creator within. Many beings will experience oneness with God and with all life. This will be the beginning of the golden age of the new human, of which it has been written; the time of the universal human, which has been eloquently described by those with deep insight among you. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Insight quotes by Stephen Mitchell
#125. ...so profound an insight into God that for a century and a half he was branded a dangerous atheist... #Quote by Stephen Mitchell
Insight quotes by G.H. Lewes
#126. We only see what interests us, and we have only insight in proportion to our sympathy. #Quote by G.H. Lewes
Insight quotes by Stephen Batchelor
#127. He has no interest in pursuing an abstract argument to demonstrate a purely theoretical truth. His practical reason is ethical. Its first principle could be stated thus: Do no evil, Take up what is good, Purify the mind - This is the teaching of buddhas.11 In seeing conditioned arising as a "ground," Gotama implies that insight into conditionality provides "grounds" on which to act. #Quote by Stephen Batchelor
Insight quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#128. Spheres are indeed fertile theoretical tools that help us gain insight into all manner of astrophysical problems. But one should not be a sphere-zealot. I am reminded of the half-serious joke about how to increase milk production on a farm: An expert in animal husbandry might say, "Consider the role of the cow's diet..." An engineer might say, "Consider the design of the milking machines..." But it's the astrophysicist who says, "Consider a spherical cow... #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Insight quotes by Arthur Koestler
#129. Insight depends on the multi-dimensional analysis of the input in its various aspects, on extracting relevant messages from irrelevant noise, identifying patterns in the mosaic until it has become saturated, as it were, with meaning. #Quote by Arthur Koestler
Insight quotes by George Eliot
#130. Love gives insight, Maggie, and insight often gives foreboding. Listen to me, let me supply you with books; do let me see you sometimes, be your brother and teacher, as you said at Lorton. It is less wrong that you should see me than that you should be committing this long suicide. #Quote by George Eliot
Insight quotes by Jostein Gaarder
#131. A philosopher knows that in reality he knows very little. That is why he constantly strives to achieve true insight. Socrates was one of these rare people. He knew that he knew nothing about life and about the world. And now comes the important part: it troubled him that he knew so little. #Quote by Jostein Gaarder
Insight quotes by C.S. Pacat
#132. With a clear moment of insight, Charls saw that Lamen was not a cloth merchant's assistant. He was the prince's private companion, and had no real skills whatsoever. #Quote by C.S. Pacat
Insight quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#133. Remembering where and why you fell and learning the lessons well is a good starting point to start all over again with a broaden insight and a renewed fortitude and wit to dare again for victory! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Insight quotes by Creflo A. Dollar
#134. Mars and Venus and Jupiter, all of the handiwork of God was now placed in the authority of the God of the earth. And here's what He told him. He said I want you to guard it and keep out all intruders. Now that gives us a little insight on why When God made Adam all he did was made an exact imprint of himself. He duplicated himself, he was the image and from his image came himself. #Quote by Creflo A. Dollar
Insight quotes by Paulo Coelho
#135. Break the glass, please, and free us from all these damned rules, from needing to find an explanation for everything, from doing only what others approve of. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Insight quotes by Keith Olbermann
#136. Your anger will cool into hardened passionate insight if you wait a day. Most of the things that make me angry I let them sit. The heat that remains will be sufficient. The stuff that evaporates is the stuff that would have simply offended or made it histrionic. #Quote by Keith Olbermann
Insight quotes by Karen Salmansohn
#137. I describe a soulmate as a 'soul-nurturing mate' - someone who nurtures your soul - thereby promoting insight and growth. #Quote by Karen Salmansohn
Insight quotes by K.J. Kilton
#138. A woman knows what it means to experience the world as her individual self. That gives her insight into her own reality. #Quote by K.J. Kilton
Insight quotes by John Ruskin
#139. Let us then understand at once that change or variety is as much a necessity to the human heart and brain in buildings as in books; that there is no merit, though there is some occasional use, in monotony; and that we must no more expect to derive either pleasure or profit from an architecture whose ornaments are of one pattern, and whose pillars are of one proportion, than we should of a universe in which the clouds were all of one shape, and the trees all of one shape. #Quote by John Ruskin
Insight quotes by Charlotte Rogan
#140. I have lost patience with the idea of an insignificant human being standing up above the rest of us
whether he is called Reverend or Doctor or Judge
and shouting at us all about this thing or that. As soon as someone starts to pontificate in this way, I am apt to cut him off or leave the room, or, if this can't be done gracefully, I simply arrange that sweet vapid smile on my face that was so useful during the trial but that so infuriates Dr. Cole. After all, I have already taken the measure of my own insignificance, and I survived. #Quote by Charlotte Rogan
Insight quotes by Michael Bungay Stanier
#141. In his book Getting Things Done, David Allen shares a crucial insight: "You can't do a project. You can only do the next step. #Quote by Michael Bungay Stanier
Insight quotes by Rajneesh
#142. The essential religion is taking the whole responsibility for whatsoever you are. And immediately an insight arises: 'If I am responsible for my suffering, then it is simple, I can drop it. It is my choice. I will not choose it any more.' #Quote by Rajneesh
Insight quotes by Emily Fridlund
#143. Maybe there is a way to climb above everything, some special ladder or insight, some optical vantage point that allows a clear, unobstructed view of things. #Quote by Emily Fridlund
Insight quotes by Leo Rosten
#144. I sometimes think there is a dimension beyond the four of experience and Einstein: insight, that fifth dimension which promises to liberate us from bondage to the long, imperfect past #Quote by Leo Rosten
Insight quotes by William S. Burroughs
#145. Many doctors are drawn to this profession (psychology) because they have an innate deficiency of insight into the motives, feelings and thoughts of others, a deficiency they hope to remedy by ingesting masses of data. #Quote by William S. Burroughs
Insight quotes by Rod Carew
#146. Our commitment to coaches will be realized via TeamCarew, a grassroots marketing program that will provide them with insight and tools to teach the art and science of hitting. #Quote by Rod Carew
Insight quotes by Craig Davidson
#147. You might think my chosen career would lend me insight…. But while I can tell you about the brain as a physical object…, beyond that I am a glorified techie. I know the nuts and bolts and can diagnose flaws within the mainframe. While I can identify and sometimes fix structural maladies within that organ, I do not remotely understand it. That is an impossible task, like trying to guess the path rainwater will take down a windowpane. There is simply no way to know with any accuracy what is happening inside someone else's head. I only faintly comprehend what is going on inside my own. #Quote by Craig Davidson
Insight quotes by Richard Schmid
#148. What sets you apart from the rest of humanity is your ability to give visual form to an idea - the skill to transform it into something more than merely the insight or perception alone. #Quote by Richard Schmid

Insight quotes by Taylor Stevens
#152. Subterfuge as a woman was always more complicated than subterfuge as a man; the guise of femininity required further insight, required understanding of the cultural context in which the costume would be viewed.

For a man, changes in accoutrements and clothing created changes in status perception, but, no matter the culture, a man was a man. A woman, on the other hand, was never JUST a woman.

A woman was an object, a canvas, upon which society and culture painted labels and framed unspoken expectations, a collectively owned piece upon which shame, scorn, and punishment should be heaped if she failed to confirm to the prescribed design. Even in the most forward-thinking countries, subconscious collusion and tacit social agreement put the value of the opinions and contributions of women at less than those of a full person - somewhere between child and adult. Subterfuge as a woman was always more complicated because a man in a suit was a man in a suit, but a woman in a dress with a hemline two inches too short was a slut, and, in the wrong part of town, a whore, and, in the wrong country, a corpse not quite yet dead. #Quote by Taylor Stevens
Insight quotes by Yo-Yo Ma
#153. Children, in a way, are constant learners. Certainly sponge-like. Absorbing everything without careful analysis, even though, at the same time, they are certainly capable of incredible insights. #Quote by Yo-Yo Ma

Insight quotes by Peter Singer
#156. Marx saw that capitalism is a wasteful, irrational system, a system which controls us when we should be controlling it. That insight is still valid; but we can now see that the construction of a free and equal society is a more difficult task than Marx realized. #Quote by Peter Singer

Insight quotes by Sylvia Clare
#158. Intuition comes in several forms:
- a sudden flash of insight, visual or auditory
- a predictive dream
- a spinal shiver of recognition as something is occurring or told to you
- a sense of knowing something already
- a sense of deja vu
- a snapshot image of a future scene or event
- knowledge, perspective or understanding divined from tools which respond to the subconscious mind #Quote by Sylvia Clare

Insight quotes by Charles H. Bennett
#161. I am so sorry to hear of Asher's passing. I will miss his scientific insight and advice, but even more his humor and stubborn integrity. I remember when one of his colleagues complained about Asher's always rejecting his manuscript when they were sent to him to referee. Asher said in effect, 'You should thank me. I am only trying to protect your reputation.' He often pretended to consult me, a fellow atheist, on matters of religious protocol.

{Charles H. Bennett's letter written to the family of Israeli physicist, Asher Peres} #Quote by Charles H. Bennett
Insight quotes by Thomas Sowell
#162. If one writing contributed more than any other to the framework in which this work Sowell's Knowledge and Decisions developed, it would be an essay entitled 'The Use of Knowledge in Society,' published in the American Economic Review of September 1945, and written by F. A. Hayek . In this plain and apparently simple essay was a deeply penetrating insight into the way societies function and malfunction, and clues as to why they are so often and so profoundly misunderstood. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Insight quotes by Marilyn Suzanne Miller
#163. Dating is a social brain teaser, as it requires constantly changing ratios of intimacy and distance, an erotic mental cha-cha choreographed by chemistry, insight, and fear. #Quote by Marilyn Suzanne Miller
Insight quotes by Charles
#164. Coup d'Oeil Concept A French expression which loosely translated means the "strike of the eye" or the "vision behind the eye." The closest English concept would be that of intuition. Intuition is defined as "perceptive insight" or "the power to discern the true nature of a situation. #Quote by Charles "Sid" Heal
Insight quotes by Charles Webster Leadbeater
#165. There are some whose Karma is such as to enable them to develop the purely spiritual faculties first of all
to overleap the astral plane for the time, as it were; and when afterwards they make its acquaintance they have, if their spiritual development has been perfect, the immense advantage of dipping into it from above, with the aid of a spiritual insight which cannot be deceived and a spiritual strength which nothing can resist. #Quote by Charles Webster Leadbeater
Insight quotes by Rudolf Steiner
#166. You'll be able to gain insight and reach a conclusion only by applying the powers of mind, intellect, soul, heart, spirit, and imagination. This is what 'looking at something spiritually' really means. #Quote by Rudolf Steiner
Insight quotes by Seth Godin
#167. Art is frightening. Art isn't pretty. Art isn't painting. Art isn't something you hang on the wall. Art is what we do when we're truly alive. An artist is someone who uses bravery, insight, creativity, and boldness to challenge the status quo. And an artist takes it (all of it, the work, the process, the feedback from those we seek to connect with) personally. #Quote by Seth Godin
Insight quotes by Douglas Murray
#168. [They] may have for instance taken the view of Edmund Burke, who in the 18th century made the central conservative insight; that a culture and a society are not things run for the convenience of the people who happen to be here right now, but is a deep pact between the dead, the living, and those yet to be born. #Quote by Douglas Murray
Insight quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith
#169. There can be few fields of human endeavor in which history counts for so little as in the world of finance.Past experience, to the extent that it is part of memory at all, is dismissed as the primitive refuge of the those who do not have insight to appreciate the incredible wonders of the present. #Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith
Insight quotes by Orhan Pamuk

Insight quotes by Jamais Cascio

Thomas Gordon said it well: "Children sometimes know better than parents when they are sleepy or hungry; know better the qualities of their friends, their own aspirations and goals, how their various teachers treat them; know better the urges and needs within their bodies, whom they love and whom they don't, what they value and what they don't."4 In any case, we can't always assume that because we're more mature we necessarily have more insight into our children than they have into themselves. #Quote by Alfie Kohn
Insight quotes by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
#173. I explain at the parties that I believe knitting is a transformative and intriguing act that can change the life and brain of the person doing it, and that knitting is a perfect metaphor for life and insight into some better ways through it. #Quote by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
Insight quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#174. I don't do much more than organise other people's ideas and insights and thoughts, and sort of harvest them, and inventory them and present them. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Insight quotes by Sherwood Smith
#175. It would have been funny if I had been an observer and not a participant, an idea that gave me a disconcerting insight into gossip. As I walked beside the silent Tamara, I realized that despite how entertaining certain stories were, at the bottom of every item of gossip there was someone getting hurt. #Quote by Sherwood Smith
Insight quotes by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
#176. A moment's insight is sometimes worth a life's experience. #Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
Insight quotes by Marc Ian Barasch
#177. Loosen the bonds of discursive thought. Extend the circle of caring. Cease armoring against suffering. Wish for others the same happiness you wish for yourself. Be a tender-minded steward of creation. #Quote by Marc Ian Barasch
Insight quotes by Pearl Zhu
#178. The Board needs to extend its insight and innovation lens via cognitive difference. #Quote by Pearl Zhu
Insight quotes by Elif Shafak
#179. (T)here are friendships in this world that seem incomprehensible to ordinary people, but are in fact conduits to deeper wisdom and insight. #Quote by Elif Shafak
Insight quotes by Ernst Cassirer
#180. Such is the strange situation in which modern philosophy finds itself. No former age was ever in such a favourable position with regard to the sources of our knowledge of human nature. Psychology, ethnology, anthropology, and history have amassed an astoundingly rich and constantly increasing body of facts. Our technical instruments for observation and experimentation have been immensely improved, and our analyses have become sharper and more penetrating.
We appear, nonetheless, not yet to have found a method for the mastery and organization of this material. When compared with our own abundance the past may seem very poor. But our wealth of facts is not necessarily a wealth of thoughts. Unless we succeed in finding a clue of Ariadne to lead us out of this labyrinth, we can have no real insight into the general character of human culture; we shall remain lost in a mass of disconnected and disintegrated data which seem to lack all conceptual unity. #Quote by Ernst Cassirer
Insight quotes by Terry Pratchett
#181. Real education happens when you pick up a fact here, and another fact there, and put them together and get an insight. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Insight quotes by TemitOpe Ibrahim
#182. The truth is precious commodity, not everyone will possess her. #Quote by TemitOpe Ibrahim
Insight quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#183. As long as the sole ruler and disposer of the universe, the nous, remained excluded from artistic activity, things were mixed together in a primeval chaos: this was what Euripides must have thought; and so, as the first "sober" one among them, he had to condemn the "drunken" poets. Sophocles said of Aeschylus that he did what was right, though he did it unconsciously. This was surely not how Euripides saw it. He might have said that Aeschylus, because he created unconsciously, did what was wrong. The divine Plato, too, almost always speaks only ironically of the creative faculty of the poet, insofar as it is not conscious insight, and places it on a par with the gift of the soothsayer and dream-interpreter: the poet is incapable of composing until he has become unconscious and bereft of understanding. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Insight quotes by Edward Myers
#184. At that moment Jack reached an insight, one he never forgot: a bee in a story could tickle worse than a real bee. He realized, too, that a story peach could be sweeter than a real peach, a story flower more fragrant than a real flower, a story song more melodious than a real song. What existed in a story could be more real than what existed in the world. And by reaching this insight, Jack understood the true power of his art. #Quote by Edward Myers
Insight quotes by John C. Wright
#185. You were burning in the middle of the worst solar storm our records can remember. (...) Everyone else fled. All your companions and crew left you alone to wrestle with the storm.

"You did not blame them. In a moment of crystal insight, you realized that they were cowards beyond mere cowardice: their dependence on their immortality circuits had made it so that they could not even imagine risking their lives. They were all alike in this respect. They did not know they were not brave; they could not even think of dying as possible; how could they think of facing it, unflinching?

"You did not flinch. You knew you were going to die; you knew it when the Sophotechs, who are immune to pain and fear, all screamed and failed and vanished.

"And you knew, in that moment of approaching death, with all your life laid out like a single image for you to examine in a frozen moment of time, that no one was immortal, not ultimately, not really. The day may be far away, it may be further away than the dying of the sun, or the extinction of the stars, but the day will come when all our noumenal systems fail, our brilliant machines all pass away, and our records of ourselves and memories shall be lost.

"If all life is finite, only the grace and virtue with which it is lived matters, not the length. So you decided to stay another moment, and erect magnetic shields, one by one; to discharge interruption masses into the current, to break up the reinforceme #Quote by John C. Wright
Insight quotes by Mariko Tamaki
#186. Have faith in yourself to know what's right for you. Whatever answer you need, it's inside you somewhere. #Quote by Mariko Tamaki
Insight quotes by Allan Lokos
#187. The erruption of feelings & emotions that follows a near-death exerience, or any event that causes us to stop & look deeply at the reality of our lives, is ripe with the potential for insight & clarity. #Quote by Allan Lokos
Insight quotes by Nicolas Bouvier
#188. That day, I really believed that I had grasped something and that henceforth my life would be changed. But insights cannot be held for ever. Like water, the world ripples across you and for a while you take on its colours. Then it recedes, and leaves you face to face with the void you carry inside yourself, confronting that central inadequacy of soul which you must learn to rub shoulders with and to combat, and which, paradoxically, may be our surest impetus. #Quote by Nicolas Bouvier
Insight quotes by Henry Hallett Dale
#189. Littlewood, on Hardy's own estimate, is the finest mathematician he has ever known. He was the man most likely to storm and smash a really deep and formidable problem; there was no one else who could command such a combination of insight, technique and power. #Quote by Henry Hallett Dale
Insight quotes by Rollo Tomassi
#190. The truth will set you free, but it doesn't make truth hurt any less, nor does it make truth any prettier, and it certainly doesn't absolve you of the responsibilities that truth requires. One of the biggest obstacles guys face in unplugging is accepting the hard truths that Game forces upon them. Among these is bearing the burden of realizing what you've been conditioned to believe for so long were comfortable ideals and loving expectations are really liabilities. Call them lies if you want, but there's a certain hopeless nihilism that accompanies categorizing what really amounts to a system that you are now cut away from. It is not that you're hopeless, it's that you lack the insight at this point to see that you can create hope in a new system – one in which you have more direct control over. #Quote by Rollo Tomassi
Insight quotes by Dan Millman
#191. You are rich if you have enough money to satisfy all your desires. So there are two ways to be rich: You earn, inherit, borrow, beg, or steal enough money to meet all your desires; or, you cultivate a simple lifestyle of few desires; that way you always have enough money. "A peaceful warrior has the insight and discipline to choose the simple way - to know the difference between needs and wants. We have few basic needs but endless wants. Full attention to every moment is my pleasure. Attention costs no money; your only investment is training. That's another advantage of being a warrior, Dan - it's cheaper! The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less." I #Quote by Dan Millman
Insight quotes by Masha Tupitsyn
#192. Thinking through quotes, which to say scouring a range of texts for insight, is one way to outline the process of thinking/feeling through a subject. #Quote by Masha Tupitsyn
Insight quotes by Junot Diaz
#193. Literature is less involved in giving you answers and more dedicated to giving you insight. #Quote by Junot Diaz
Insight quotes by Edmund Wilson
#194. Real genius of moral insight is a motor which will start any engine. #Quote by Edmund Wilson
Insight quotes by Andrew Hilliard Atteridge
#195. Foch never for a moment thought about the easy ways of bringing his name before the public and the political world, or even about acquiring a reputation for military insight among the chiefs of the French army. He never posed as a central figure at public functions; he was never interviewed by the press; he made no use of the professional reviews to bring his name before military readers. Ile never published a line until his chiefs suggested the publication of his lectures at the Staff College. From the day when he received his first commission he was a hard-working student of war, patiently preparing himself to do his duty when the opportunity came, and meanwhile content to put all his energies into the work assigned to him. Success in the career of arms is not always associated with high personal character or with this modest pursuit of duty for its own sake. #Quote by Andrew Hilliard Atteridge
Insight quotes by Jarod Kintz
#196. Would you rather have sight, or insight? I'd rather have a double cheeseburger. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Insight quotes by Gina Greenlee
#197. The gift of solo moments is that they are wholly ours. On or off the road, solo moments connect us inward to ourselves with heightened clarity and insight. They also direct our energies out into the world, magnetizing us to new people and experiences we may not have encountered under any other circumstance. #Quote by Gina Greenlee
Insight quotes by David Limbaugh
#198. The unique, compelling, and earnest voice that characterizes Jedediah's weekly columns comes alive with increased vitality in OUTNUMBERED. She shatters leftist stereotypes about conservatives and exposes the myth of liberal tolerance as she relates her interactions with liberals in everyday life. This narrative, interlaced with commentary and impressions, gives us insight into liberals that books merely about abstract principles do not capture. A fascinating read. #Quote by David Limbaugh
Insight quotes by Derrick Jensen
#199. ...a woman smart and persistent enough that even a PhD in psychology hasn't clouded her insight into how people think and act. #Quote by Derrick Jensen
Insight quotes by Rajneesh
#200. Surrender is not something that you can do. If you do it, it is not surrender, because the doer is there. Surrender is a great understanding that, "I am not." Surrender is an insight that the ego exists not, that, "I am not separate." Surrender is not an act but an understanding. #Quote by Rajneesh
