Intention quotes by Joe Navarro
#1. The majority of individuals view their surroundings with a minimal amount of observational effort. They are unaware of the rich tapestry of details that surrounds them, such as the subtle movement of a person's hand or foot that might betray his thoughts or intentions. #Quote by Joe Navarro
Intention quotes by Deepak Chopra
#2. Every child needs as much mature love as you can give. What makes love mature - and not just adult - is the conscious spiritual intention behind it. The birth of a baby launches us as teachers of spirit. Afterward we rely on the grace of love, which guides our intentions in the years to come. Spirit lifts us above our individual fallibility, and in doing that it teaches our children the deepest, most valuable lessons. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Intention quotes by Dean Koontz
#3. The line between moral behavior and narcissistic self-righteousness is thin and difficult to discern. The man who stands before a crowd and proclaims his intention to save the seas is convinced that he is superior to a man who merely picks up his own and other people's litter on the beach, when in fact the latter is in some small way sure to make the world a better place, while the former is likely to be a monster of vanity whose crusade will lead to unintended destruction. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Intention quotes by Rembrandt
#4. A work is finished when an artist realizes his intentions. #Quote by Rembrandt
Intention quotes by Stephanie Dowrick
#5. Restraint offers a space between intention and action and the opportunity to protect others from actions or reactions that should exist only in your imagination #Quote by Stephanie Dowrick
Intention quotes by Christine Feehan
#6. No, they would not be happy to take my place at your side, cara mia, because I would promptly end their lives in a most unhappy way.'
'You are such a caveman, Julian. You look tall and elegant and princely, yet you have not matured beyond the cave.'
…'I have no intention of riding above caveman mentality,' he growled in her ear, his breath teasing tendrils of hair and sending little flames dancing through her bloodstream. 'There are so many benefits for the caveman. #Quote by Christine Feehan
Intention quotes by Mozella Ademiluyi
#7. Being sure-footed is also about paying attention and maintaining the right vision, intention and attitude. You will always benefit from spending time in thought and prayer about where you're headed and why it matters that you get there. #Quote by Mozella Ademiluyi
Intention quotes by Mike George
#8. Intelligence is using what you KNOW, in the right way, in the right place, at the right moment and with the right intention. #Quote by Mike George
Intention quotes by Gregory Of Nyssa
#9. We are not entitled to such licence, I mean that of affirming what we please; we make the Holy Scriptures the rule and the measure of every tenet; we necessarily fix our eyes upon that, and approve that alone which may be made to harmonize with the intention of those writings #Quote by Gregory Of Nyssa
Intention quotes by Steve Hagen
#10. We can easily see what actions and speech will lead us and others into hatred, confusion, difficulty, and suffering. And we can see what words and actions will not. ... Is our intention to hoodwink, mislead, inflate, or deceive others ... ? #Quote by Steve Hagen
Intention quotes by Richard House
#11. When I started writing the third book, 'The Kill,' the intention was just to write a thriller, a crime novel for myself, really, in which there would be no body, no solution - where you would look at an event from different people's perspectives. #Quote by Richard House
Intention quotes by Neelam Saxena Chandra
#12. One may be doing all good and right things, but if they aren't done with good intentions, they are futile. Having right intentions is the most important! Even the prayers are of no use if not done in the right earnest! #Quote by Neelam Saxena Chandra
Intention quotes by Georgette Heyer
#13. Are you aware, ma'am, that it is my intention to marry Lucilla myself?'
There was a slight pause. Miss Fairfax said rather carefully, 'I was aware of it, sir, but I have always been at a loss to know why. [...]'
'If you mean that I am not in love with her, no, certainly I am not!' responded the Earl stiffly. 'The match was the wish of both our fathers.'
'How elevating it is to encounter such filial piety in these days!' observed Miss Fairfax soulfully. #Quote by Georgette Heyer
Intention quotes by Claire Messud
#14. As any of us approaches middle age, we inevitably come up against our limitations: the realization that certain dearly-held fantasies may not be realized; that circumstances have thwarted us; that even with intention and will we may not be able to set our ship back on the course we'd planned. #Quote by Claire Messud
Intention quotes by Kelley Armstrong
#15. I won't make excuses for what I did. The truth is that your whole life can change with one split-second decision, and it doesn't matter if you told yourself you'd never do it or if you stepped into the moment with no intention of doing it. All it takes is for that one second of absolute panic when the solution shines right there in front of you, and you grab it ... only to have it turn into ash in your hand. There is no excuse for what I did. #Quote by Kelley Armstrong
Intention quotes by Amy Harmon
#16. I clung to him like my life depended on it. Maybe it did. I hadn't seen him for so many years, and so much had happened in my life since I had last seen his face, but at that moment I was thirteen again. Someone I had loved had returned, someone lost had come back to me, and I held him fiercely, with no intention of ever letting him go. #Quote by Amy Harmon
Intention quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#17. Adam relented. As they kept walking and the Orphan Girl kept piping her song and the fish kept darting through the air around them, he threw out intention of his own.
The volume of the resulting boom surprised even him; he heard it in one ear and felt it in both feet. The others all startled as another bass-heavy boom sounded at the beginning of the next measure of the tune. By the time the third thud came, it was obviously pounding in time with the music. Each of the trees they passed sounded with a processed thud, until the sound around them was the pulsing electronic beat that invariably played in Ronan's car or headphones.
"Oh God," Gansey said, but he was laughing. "Do we have to endure that here, too? Ronan! "
"It wasn't me," Ronan said. He looked to Blue, who shrugged. He caught Adam's eye. When Adam's mouth quirked, Ronan's expression stilled for a moment before turning to the loose smile he ordinarily reserved for Matthew's silliness. Adam felt a surge of both accomplishment and nerves. He skated an edge here. Making Ronan Lynch smile felt as charged as making a bargain with Cabeswater. These weren't forces to play with. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Intention quotes by Roshani Chokshi
#18. Who said it was a path? It could have just been artfully strewn cookies. You made it a path by following it, and assuming it had any intention. #Quote by Roshani Chokshi
Intention quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#19. Setting the intention to practice kindness toward one's partner or family members or friends does not preclude getting angry or upset. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Intention quotes by Greg Brown
#20. Much is written about wine ... of its makers, its nuances, its myths. The white hot center of each wine's mystery lies in humble corners of the world, where growers pour their intention, their character and their love of labor into each wine. #Quote by Greg Brown
Intention quotes by John O. Donohue
#21. A Blessing is a powerful and positive intention that can transform situations and people. Whenever you give a Blessing, a Blessing returns to enfold you. #Quote by John O. Donohue
Intention quotes by Hiram Powers
#22. The eye is the window of the soul, the mouth the door. The intellect, the will, are seen in the eye; the emotions, sensibilities, and affections, in the mouth. The animals look for man's intentions right into his eyes. Even a rat, when you hunt him and bring him to bay, looks you in the eye. #Quote by Hiram Powers
Intention quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#23. How long Archibald slept he could not have said. He woke some hours later with a vague feeling that a thunderstorm of unusual violence had broken out in his immediate neighborhood. But this, he realized as the mists of slumber cleared away, was an error. The noise which had disturbed him was not thunder but the sound of someone snoring. Snoring like the dickens. The walls seemed to be vibrating like the deck of an ocean liner....

His spirit was not so completely broken as to make him lie supinely down beneath that snoring. The sound filled him, as snoring fills every right-thinking man, with a seething resentment and a passionate yearning for justice, and he climbed out of bed with the intention of taking the proper steps through the recognized channels. It is the custom nowadays to disparage the educational methods of the English public school and to maintain that they are not practical and of a kind to fit the growing boy for the problems of afterlife. But you do learn one thing at a public school, and that is how to act when somebody starts snoring.

You jolly well grab a cake of soap and pop in and stuff it down the blighter's throat. And this is what Archibald proposed - God willing - to do. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Intention quotes by Nicola Yoon
#24. I'm desperate to prevent her tears, but not because I'm noble or anything. I'm kind of a contagion cryer. You know how when one person starts yawning, everyone else starts yawning too? Or when someone vomits, the smell makes you want to hurl? I'm like that, except with crying, and I have no intention of crying in front of the cute girl whose headphones I just broke. #Quote by Nicola Yoon
Intention quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#25. Your intention rules your life and determines the outcome. #Quote by Oprah Winfrey
Intention quotes by Catherine Carrigan
#26. To communicate intuitively to an animal, the simplest way to begin is to set your intention for your soul to communicate with the animal's soul. #Quote by Catherine Carrigan
Intention quotes by Rupert Friend
#27. I'll tell you, there's no goodies and baddies in the world, there's just people with intentions that sometimes clash. #Quote by Rupert Friend
Intention quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#28. A good intention clothes itself with power. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Intention quotes by Daniela Nikolova
#29. Miracles happen when the intention is love... #Quote by Daniela Nikolova
Intention quotes by Scott Abel
#30. If you work and do pure research in this industry as long as I have – and you actually pay attention and do your homework, then this naked and raw truth stands out -> The supplement world of cancer-fighters, CAD-preventers, health-promoters, magic-water – AND/OR - muscle-builders, fat-burners and weight-loss agents – all of them – already have an over-crowded mass grave-yard of previous magic bullets that would supposedly make your life and/or body better – Yes, so promising and heavily promoted "this" era – but so dead and gone the next – leaving in their wake a trail of mass-consumer confusion – but also leaving their actual intention -> a new generation of passive consumers – those who can't differentiate the sizzle from the steak. Or as W.C. Fields put it so long ago – "There's a sucker born every minute." -> There isn't a supplement on the planet that marks the difference between 'health or ill-health' – or between 'fit or fat.' - or between 'results and stagnation. #Quote by Scott Abel
Intention quotes by Jerry Garcia
#31. And there's a lot of that stuff with people bringing their kids, kids bringing their parents, people bringing their grandparents - I mean, it's gotten to be really stretched out now. It was never my intention to say, this is the demographics of our audience. #Quote by Jerry Garcia
Intention quotes by Kytka Hilmar-Jezek
#32. Your intention is for readers to benefit from your experiences and avoid the costly and time consuming mistakes you may have made. You want to help your readers know the short cuts and what you would have avoided, and why. As you write, keep a clear sense of why writing this is important to you, but also share your why within the body of the book. Why do your readers need to take the steps you describe? Are you saving them time, money, resources? Why did you start your journey to begin with? Did you want to change the world or get from point "A" to point "B"? Why did you keep going even when it was difficult? Was there a light at the end of the tunnel, a reward at the end? Why should they hang in there? All of these things will work magically if implemented correctly and consistently. #Quote by Kytka Hilmar-Jezek
Intention quotes by Steve Bisley
#33. As an actor, the thing I want to do to an audience is always be ahead of them and always be surprising in the work without deviating from the writer's intention. #Quote by Steve Bisley
Intention quotes by Kim Wilkins
#34. I've no intention of sitting by the fire on such a beautiful day," Loki sad.
"Then let us walk in the woods."
"Walk? Wouldn't you rather ride with me?" "I couldn't keep up." "No," he said, grasping her elbow gently. "With me. On Heror." He whistled loudly and Heror turned and walked toward them.

A shiver of fear frosted her skin. She was uncomfortable on horseback - preferred her feet on the ground-let alone a fast powerful beast like Heror with Loki at the reins. "I'm not sure…"
"Didn't you say you would keep me company? Come."
"Must we go very fast?"
Loki laughed his wild laugh. "Of course we must!"
With swift grace, he mounted Heror, then put down his hand for her. "Come, Aud. Don't be frightened. You may trust me."
Trust Loki? Aud almost laughed. She wondered if Vidar would appreciate her actions when she told him this evening. "Very well,' she said. She tied her skirts around her hips and, reaching up, allowed Loki to help her onto Heror's back.
"Hold on tight," Loki said, slapping her thigh playfully. Aud needed no prompting. She locked her arms about his waist, her hands tight over his hollow stomach. No warmth emanated from his body. His black hair caught against her cheek and lip. She screwed her eyes tightly closed.
Heror need little encouragement from Loki. Almost as soon as they were settled, he sped off like lightning. Aud cracked open one eye to see where they were going, but hurriedly closed it when the b #Quote by Kim Wilkins
Intention quotes by Danielle LaPorte
#35. The foundation of a good relationship with intentions & goals is keeping in mind that the primary aim of setting and working toward them is to feel the way you want to feel. #Quote by Danielle LaPorte
Intention quotes by K.L. Toth
#36. Powerful words come with powerful intent. Where you have passion, strength, courage, and determination you can accomplish anything! #Quote by K.L. Toth
Intention quotes by Lindy West
#37. Art isn't indiscriminate shit-flinging. It's pure communication, crafted with intention and care. Every comedian on every stage is saying what he's saying on purpose. So shouldn't we be welcome to examine that purpose, contextualize it within our culture at large, and critique what we find? The #Quote by Lindy West
Intention quotes by Abigail George
#38. Like water our ideals for writing what seems at first to be a calling to pen a masterpiece, it at first can be pure, fluid even (words can come easily) but we also have to learn to work with what our eyes glaze over as weak substitutes, words that we think have no substance to what we are learning towards. What is every poet's intention? Their intention is to forge, nullify, create, defend, fill the reader with the awe and inspiration that every poet themselves craves. They want to carve a name for themselves in the annals of history, leave a not so quiet legacy behind. Poets want immortality or rather they want their words to become immortal. Perhaps even Marlowe and Shakespeare had discussions about this. #Quote by Abigail George
Intention quotes by William H. Gass
#39. Normally, we are supposed to say farewell to the page even as we look, to see past the cut of the type, hear beyond the shape of the sound, feel more than the heft of the book, to hear the bird sing whose name has been invoked, and think of love being made through the length of the night if the bird's name is nightingale; but when the book itself has the beauty of the bird, and the words do their own singing; when the token is treated as if it, not some divine intention, was holy and had power; when the bird itself is figured in the margins as though that whiteness were a moon-bleached bough and the nearby type the leaves it trembles; and when indigo turbans or vermilion feathers are, with jasmines, pictured so perfectly that touch falls in love with the finger, eyes light, and nostrils flare; when illustrations refuse to illustrate but instead suggest the inside of the reader's head, where a consciousness is being constructed; then the nature of the simple sign is being vigorously denied, and the scene or line or brief rendition is being treated like a thing itself, returning the attention to its qualities and composition. -- From "The Book As a Container of Consciousness #Quote by William H. Gass
Intention quotes by Kelly J. Cogswell
#40. We Lesbian Avengers have built this shrine. It stands for our fear. It stands for our grief. It stands for our rage. And it enshrines our intention to live fully and completely as who we are, wherever we are. We take the fire of action into our hearts. And we take it into our bodies. And we stand, here and now, to make it known that we are here, and here we will stay. Our fear does not consume us. Their fire will not consume us. We take that fire, and we make it our own. #Quote by Kelly J. Cogswell
Intention quotes by Kij Johnson
#41. The constant talking didn't bother her, for cats use their voices to say 'here I am, where are you?' and this seemed to be the primary intention of most human conversation. #Quote by Kij Johnson
Intention quotes by George Washington
#42. In the discharge of this trust I will only say that I have, with good intentions, contributed toward the organization and administration of the Government the best exertions of which a very fallible judgment was capable. #Quote by George Washington
Intention quotes by Felicity Brandon
#43. Leaving my empty goblet, I slide from the soft pile at his order. I can already feel the desire bursting from between my thighs as I fall to all fours and begin my crawl to where he has seated himself.
"We will begin as before - you will be spanked over my knee - but this time there will be little pleasure in it for you, my captive. I intend to hurt you - to mark that pretty little behind - and make you unable to sit properly for some time."
I am back by his feet as he concludes and warily, I raise my eyes as he finishes the sentence. I know I am not hiding the terror in my face and yet still I am compelled to carry on - submitting myself to him in this way for our mutual need. He catches my hair in his left hand and pulls it into a rough ponytail, again drawing my head back.
"When my hand is aching from tanning your backside, I will bind you to the bedpost and continue to thrash you with my strap. Do you understand?"
He eyes me wildly and for a moment I am too afraid to even respond. I have to swallow hard again to find my voice.
"Please, my Lofðungr," I say shakily. "I do not know if I can bear such a punishment?"
He never takes his eyes from me as he answers. "You can and you will, my sweeting," he says. "You will submit to me in this way as a sign of your true desire to be mine."
I close my eyes at his words, understanding for the first time his real intention. He means not just to punish me, but to mark and possess me in some meaningful #Quote by Felicity Brandon
Intention quotes by James Schuyler
#44. However, intention needn't enter in, and if a reader sees things in a religious way, and the work is dogmatically acceptable, then I don't see why it should not be interpreted in that way, as well as in others. #Quote by James Schuyler
Intention quotes by Jane Austen
#45. Would Mr. Darcy then consider the rashness of your original intention as atoned for by your obstinacy in adhering to it? #Quote by Jane Austen
Intention quotes by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
#46. But if a good heart, a good intention, a subjective conviction are declared to be the sources from which actions derive their worth, then there is no longer any hypocrisy or evil at all; for whatever someone does, he can always turn it into something good through reflecting on his good intentions and motives, and so the moment of his convictions renders it good. #Quote by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
Intention quotes by Patrul Rinpoche
#47. What makes an action positive or negative? Not how it looks, not whether it is big or small, but it is the positive or negative motivation that is behind it.

No matter how many teachings that you have heard, to be motivated by ordinary concerns, such as a desire for greatness, fame or whatever, is not the way of the true Dharma. #Quote by Patrul Rinpoche
Intention quotes by Franz Kafka
#48. It certainly was not my intention to make you suffer, yet i have done so; obviously it never will be my intention to make you suffer, yet I shall always do so. #Quote by Franz Kafka
Intention quotes by Travis Fimmel
#49. I went to university for a year, and I'm not one for schooling and have no enjoyment sitting in a classroom all day and ended up going to live in England for two years, just to travel. I worked in a bar in a hotel for a couple of years and had no intention of becoming an actor. That's where I met my agent. #Quote by Travis Fimmel
Intention quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#50. Many of us slog through life without conscious awareness or intention. We set ourselves a course and we barrel ahead, without stopping to ask whether this path is fulfilling our most important goals. That's partly because many of us believe that happiness is not possible in the here and now. We think we need to struggle now so that we will be happy in the future. So we postpone happiness and try to run into the future and attain the conditions of happiness that we don't have now. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
Intention quotes by Andrew-Lee Potts
#51. It was Nick Willing's intention to make 'Hatter' as sarcastically British funny as he could. #Quote by Andrew-Lee Potts
Intention quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#52. You're not required to save the world with your creativity. Your art not only doesn't have to be original, in other words, it also doesn't have to be important. For example, whenever anyone tells me that they want to write a book in order to help other people I always think 'Oh, please don't. Please don't try to help me.' I mean it's very kind of you to help people, but please don't make it your sole creative motive because we will feel the weight of your heavy intention, and it will put a strain upon our souls. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Intention quotes by David Platt
#53. Good intentions, regular worship, Bible study, do not prevent blindness. Part of our sinful nature instinctively chooses to see what we want to see and to ignore what we want to ignore. #Quote by David Platt
Intention quotes by Henri Bergson
#54. In laughter we always find an unavowed intention to humiliate and consequently to correct our neighbour. #Quote by Henri Bergson
Intention quotes by John Kenney
#55. I have an odd capacity to escape reality. It makes life much more pleasant. Now, in this moment, I realize I have no intention of ever spreading my father's ashes off the coast of Hawaii or the coast of Coney Island, for that matter. A Buddhist might say that I wasn't living in the moment. I would reply to my saffron-robe-wearing mediator that with rare exceptions there are few moments I want to live in. I like escape. I like my made-up world. #Quote by John Kenney
Intention quotes by Kate McGahan
#56. It is through the heart that we see, hear and feel most clearly. It is like a radio signal. When it is strong the heart is like a megaphone and I get your message loud and clear. You message echoes throughout the universe when it comes from the heart on the wings of intention and faith. It is the most direct line of communication in existence once you filter out the "interference" of worry and doubt in your head, the thoughts that don't matter and only serve to block the reception. Your intention is the force, love is the connection and faith is the key that opens the door between you and me. #Quote by Kate McGahan
Intention quotes by J.D. Robb
#57. She set the tray down on the table in the sitting area
which instantly perked up Galahad's ears.
Roarke simply pointed a warning finger that had the cat shooting up a leg to wash as if a morning ablution had been his only intention. #Quote by J.D. Robb
Intention quotes by Donna Rice
#58. So on May 1, 1987, at Gary's invitation, I agreed to see him one last time - to confront him face-to-face about his sincerity and with the intention of ending our brief relationship. #Quote by Donna Rice
Intention quotes by Kwame Anthony Appiah
#59. But it does not in general make sense to suppose that a legislature has an intent in passing a law. Legislation is a political process, in which deals are cut and compromises made. In both the public and the private deliberations about any statute many inconsistent reasons will be offered for framing a clause one way or another; many suggestions, not all of them consonant with one another, will be offered as to what the overall aims of the statute are. To extract from this mishmash of mixed motives a singular coherent intention will usually be impossible.46 #Quote by Kwame Anthony Appiah
Intention quotes by Charles Simonyi
#60. Programming today is the opposite of diamond mining. In diamond mining you dig up a lot of dirt to find a small bit of value. With programming you start with the value, the real intention, and bury it in a bunch of dirt. #Quote by Charles Simonyi
Intention quotes by Charles Dow
#61. The man who begins to speculate in stocks with the intention of making a fortune usually goes broke, whereas the man who trades with a view of getting good interest on his money sometimes gets rich. #Quote by Charles Dow
Intention quotes by Dawn Gluskin
#62. When intent is rooted in pure love, you dreams will grown and manifest faster than you could ever imagine. #Quote by Dawn Gluskin
Intention quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#63. It is altogether doubtful whether any man can be saved who comes to Christ for His help with no intention to obey Him. #Quote by Aiden Wilson Tozer
Intention quotes by Anya Kamenetz
#64. There is certainly the intention of efforts like the Common Core to raise education standards and make sure that every student masters advanced math concepts - algebra, geometry, statistics and probability. #Quote by Anya Kamenetz
Intention quotes by Virginia Woolf
#65. So, thought Septimus, looking up, they are signalling to me. Not indeed in actual words; that is, he could not read the language yet; but it was plain enough, this beauty, this exquisite beauty, and tears filled his eyes as he looked at the smoke words languishing and melting in the sky and bestowing upon him in their inexhaustible charity and laughing goodness one shape after another of unimaginable beauty and signalling their intention to provide him, for nothing, for ever, for looking merely, with beauty, more beauty! Tears ran down his cheeks. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Intention quotes by Milton H. Erickson
#66. I have no intention of dying. In fact, it will be the last thing I do! #Quote by Milton H. Erickson
Intention quotes by Eli Easton
#67. Mother, just like the last fifty-five thousand times you've mentioned it, I have no intention of getting married and having a family. You're just going to have to content yourself with the grandchildren you already have. ...
...
His mother narrowed her eyes at him. He could see her mind working on how to get him to come around. She was never going to give up, and she would be fit and healthy enough to badger him about it for years and years.
...
Lance had heard humans talk about the tenacity of Jewish mothers. He didn't know any, but he'd be surprised if they could hold a candle to the relentless herding instinct of a quickened mother who was descended on both sides from border collies. #Quote by Eli Easton
Intention quotes by Susan Collins
#68. The road to success is a zigzag, first pointing this way and then that. If we start with high intention, then magic and coincidence will guide us there despite our lack of knowledge about what lies ahead. #Quote by Susan Collins
Intention quotes by Bram Stoker
#69. Bats usually wheel about, but this one seemed to go straight on, as if it knew where it was bound for or had some intention of its own. #Quote by Bram Stoker
Intention quotes by Michael Shaara
#70. Lee stopped, looked north. I twas working almost like a plan. It was possible to see Intention in it ... he gave no further directions ... it had never really been in his hands at all. And yet his was the responsibility. #Quote by Michael Shaara
Intention quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#71. It would conduce to national progress and save a great deal of time and trouble if we cultivated the habit of never supporting the resolutions either by speaking or voting for them if we had not either the intention or the ability to carry them out. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Intention quotes by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss
#72. I have no intention of spending the night in a chair and leaving you the bed. #Quote by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss
Intention quotes by John Wooden
#73. If I did only what I wanted to do, I would not be obedient to the Creator. Sometimes He wants us to do certain things that we may not feel like doing. When it comes to what God asks of us, we need more than good intentions we need to follow through fully. #Quote by John Wooden
Intention quotes by Kelly Corrigan
#74. There's hardly a positive intention associated with no. Except self-preservation. #Quote by Kelly Corrigan
Intention quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#75. In general, we draw no distinction between intention and the crime itself, and this is an instance of the superiority of Soviet legislation to bourgeois legislation #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Intention quotes by Robert Smith
#76. I had every intention of 'Bloodflowers' being the last Cure record. I thought it would be fantastic to finish with the best thing we'd ever done, but I wasn't sure we could pull it off. #Quote by Robert Smith
Intention quotes by George Leonard
#77. The universe is continually at its work of restructuring itself at a higher, more complex, more elegant level. The novelty, the new, more complex order, doesn't emerge from the present in a steady stream, nor at all places at the same rate. It comes, as all things do, in rhythmic waves; there will always be times and places of scarcity and stagnation and retrogression. Still, the long-term direction is clear. The intention of the universe is evolution. #Quote by George Leonard
Intention quotes by Alberto Giacometti
#78. I've tried doing so, for it was never my intention to paint only with gray. But in the course of my work I have eliminated one color after another, and what has remained is gray, gray, gray! #Quote by Alberto Giacometti
Intention quotes by John Dear
#79. In Yosemite, we see how everyone can inherit the earth. But that gift requires a change of heart, a new intention, a deliberate turning. From now on, we must go forward, back into the world of violence and war, to do our part to end the killing, the suffering, and the ongoing destruction of Mother Earth. Yosemite, along with all of creation, calls us to wake up, stand up, and stop the insane destruction of the earth before it's too late. #Quote by John Dear
Intention quotes by S.A. Tawks
#80. Her intention was to make the crowd aware, if they weren't already, that John was the giant whose shoulders Emily stood on. #Quote by S.A. Tawks
Intention quotes by Deepak Chopra
#81. Let the mechanics of desire bring your fulfilment without interference.the more you interfere, the less likely you will get what you want. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Intention quotes by Girdhar Joshi
#82. Only good intentions may not always translate into good results. #Quote by Girdhar Joshi
Intention quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#83. He remembered his mother's love for him, and his family's, and his friends', and the enemy's intention to kill him seemed impossible. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Intention quotes by Stephen Bungay
#84. Do not try to predict the effects your actions will have, because you can't. Instead, encourage people to adapt their actions to realize the overall intention as they observe what is actually happening. Give them boundaries which are broad enough to take decisions for themselves and act on them. #Quote by Stephen Bungay
Intention quotes by Tony Curl
#85. Part-time effort means part-tim results. #Quote by Tony Curl
Intention quotes by James Madison
#86. No man can be a competent legislator who does not add to an upright intention and a sound judgment a certain degree of knowledge of the subject on which he is to legislate. #Quote by James Madison
Intention quotes by T. Scott McLeod
#87. Success doesn't come to you; you go to it. #Quote by T. Scott McLeod
Intention quotes by Bob Schaffer
#88. One cannot help being impressed by the protesters. They have begun each day of the protest in Kiev in prayer and all activities are accomplished with a collective sense of respect, kindness, and an intention to conduct a peaceful revolution. #Quote by Bob Schaffer
Intention quotes by Cait Flanders
#89. Stuff I purchased with every intention of using, but only because I told myself it would somehow help. I wasn't good enough, but this stuff would make me better. I wanted to read, wear, and do everything so I could become the person I thought I should be. #Quote by Cait Flanders
Intention quotes by Niall Williams
#90. He had no intention of writing. He loved reading, that was all. And he read books that he thought so far beyond anything that he himself could dream of achieving that any thought of writing instantly evaporated into the certainty of failure. #Quote by Niall Williams
Intention quotes by Paulo Coelho
#91. Instead of crushing them and mixing them with water, she decided to take them one by one, because there is always a gap between intention and action, and she wanted to feel free to turn back halfway. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Intention quotes by Douglass North
#92. I went back to graduate school with the clear intention that what I wanted to do with my life was to improve societies, and the way to do that was to find out what made economies work the way they did or fail to work. #Quote by Douglass North
Intention quotes by Fergus McCann
#93. As I have indicated some time ago, I intend to divest my shareholding when I leave the Club. In doing so, my overriding principle is that I shall do what I believe is best for the future of Celtic. I have also indicated my intention that my shareholding will be made available to be held broadly amongst the supporters and existing shareholders of the Club. I believe that this should produce the best structure of ownership for the Club and the Company. #Quote by Fergus McCann
Intention quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#94. So confident am I in the intentions, as well as wisdom, of the government, that I shall always be satisfied that what is not done, either cannot, or ought not to be done. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Intention quotes by Robin G. Collingwood
#95. Parenthood is not an object of appetite or even desire. It is an object of will. There is no appetite for parenthood; there is only a purpose or intention of parenthood. #Quote by Robin G. Collingwood
Intention quotes by Brenda Perlin
#96. I had no intention of forsaking my wedding vows. I had strong morals and never could have imagined going against them. I was never even tempted to stray. #Quote by Brenda Perlin

#97. The most important property of a program is whether it accomplishes the intention of its user. #Quote by C.A.R. Hoare
Intention quotes by Gertrude Atherton
#98. Here is a simple recipe to begin with. Get up every morning with the set intention of writing and go to your desk and sit there for three hours, whether you accomplish anything or not. Before long you will find that you are writing madly, not waiting for inspiration. #Quote by Gertrude Atherton
Intention quotes by Sergio Mattarella
#99. I had no intention of entering politics, but then the force of events led me to become involved in politics. #Quote by Sergio Mattarella
Intention quotes by Jedidiah Jenkins
#100. I love old drawings and the sketches of cities and animals from ancient field guides. I like timeless things, old things. They've made it to the modern age and taken on a meaning larger than their intention. I wanted my journal to be like that. There is a weird paradox in trying to live a meaningful life, one you will talk about and tell about. There is the present experience of the living, but also the separate eye, watching from above, already seeing the living from the outside. #Quote by Jedidiah Jenkins
Intention quotes by Francois Gautier
#101. I have no intention of going back to France, except for yearly visits to meet my family. #Quote by Francois Gautier
Intention quotes by Hwa Sung Ryu
#102. Judging requires a lot of negative energy. When we stop our thoughts from judging another person's hidden motive, intention or character, and simply address our differences, we create a dialogue of peace and reconciliation. #Quote by Hwa Sung Ryu
Intention quotes by Terence McKenna
#103. We must look to the native healers all over the world and study their methods ... Their methods are chemical and personal. It's a combination of care, attention, intention and chemistry that allows consciousness to be made malleable and recast in other forms. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Intention quotes by Liberty Hyde Bailey
#104. A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them. #Quote by Liberty Hyde Bailey
Intention quotes by James W. Pennebaker
#105. We need to take out the trash. As it happens, I have no intention of actually analyzing that data. Nor am I proposing to my son that we take a family outing to the trash bin. In many situations, people use the word we when they mean you. It serves as a polite form to order others around. #Quote by James W. Pennebaker
Intention quotes by Caitlyn Siehl
#106. When the boys come with the intention of hurting you,
my advice will always stay the same, my darling:
Give 'em hell. #Quote by Caitlyn Siehl
Intention quotes by Alex Ebert
#107. The goal is to be free and hopeful in the music. Because that's really the only intention you need. From there, every natural and powerful intention and feeling will, on its own, slide right out of you - out of your spirit. #Quote by Alex Ebert
Intention quotes by Daniel LaMonte
#108. Daniel, I was asked of a budding author, how do you know if your story is on track? My answer: I start by knowing my intention, my target. Then, with purpose, I write the scene that unfolds before me, as faithfully as is human. - Daniel LaMonte #Quote by Daniel LaMonte
Intention quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#109. To transform the world, we must begin with ourselves; and what is important in beginning with ourselves is the intention. The intention must be to understand ourselves and not to leave it to others to transform themselves or to bring about a modified change through revolution, either of the left or of the right. It is important to understand that this is our responsibility, yours and mine ... #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Intention quotes by Hazrat Shaykh Sayyid Abdul Kadir Jilani
#110. A Thief Becomes an Abdaal (High-Ranking Saint)

Once a thief entered the house of Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (r.a) with the intention of stealing. On entering the house, he became blind and could not see anything. He was unable to find his way out of the house and he eventually sat in one corner of the house. In the morning, he was caught and brought before Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (r.a) . When Al-Ghawth al-A'zam (r.a) saw him, he placed his blessed hands on the thief's eyes. The thief's eyesight was immediately restored. Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (r.a) then said, "He came to steal materialistic (worldly wealth), I will bless him with such a treasure that it will remain with him forever." On saying these words, Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (r.a) placed his blessed sight on the thief once and elevated him to the status of Wilayat (Sainthood). It was also during this time that one of the appointed Abdaals had passed away. Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (r.a) took the thief, now a Wali, and sent him out as the replacement for the Abdaal that had passed away. Subhan-Allah! #Quote by Hazrat Shaykh Sayyid Abdul Kadir Jilani

#113. It's always hard for an author to determine his own intentions, especially in retrospect. #Quote by Paul Kingsnorth
Intention quotes by Dan Simmons
#114. Without conscious thought I stepped behind the altar, raised my arms, and began the celebration of the Eucharist. There was no sense of parody or melodrama in this act, no symbolism or hidden intention; it was merely the automatic reaction of a priest who had said Mass almost daily for more than forty-six years of his life and who now faced the prospect of never again participating in the reassuring ritual of that celebration. It #Quote by Dan Simmons
Intention quotes by Kiefer Sutherland
#115. There are a lot of movies I'd like to throw away. That's not to say that I went in with that attitude. Any film I ever started, I went in with all the hope and best intentions in the world, but some films just don't work. #Quote by Kiefer Sutherland
Intention quotes by Phillips Brooks
#116. Do not dare to live without some clear intention toward which your living shall be bent. Mean to be something with all your might. #Quote by Phillips Brooks
Intention quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#117. The good repent on knowing their sin; the evil become angry when discovered. Ignorance is not the cause of evil, as Plato held; neither is education the answer to the removal of evil. These men had an intellect as well as a will; knowledge as well as intention. Truth can be known and hated; Goodness can be known and crucified. The Hour was approaching, and for the moment the fear of the people deterred the Pharisees. Violence could not be triggered against Him until He would say, 'This is your Hour. #Quote by Fulton J. Sheen
Intention quotes by Abdullah Ibn Mubarak
#118. Perhaps a great deed is belittled by an intention. And perhaps a small deed, by sincere intention, is made great #Quote by Abdullah Ibn Mubarak
Intention quotes by Maurice Merleau Ponty
#119. To understand is to experience harmony between what we aim at and what is given, between the intention and the performance - and the body is our anchorage in the world. #Quote by Maurice Merleau Ponty
Intention quotes by Gary Zukav
#120. Caregiving requires the intention of love, caretaking requires the intention of fear. Not acting in anger when you are angry requires the intention of love. #Quote by Gary Zukav
Intention quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#121. So perhaps the very idea of explanation is an error of anthropomorphism when it is applied to things that do not involve human intention. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Intention quotes by Dennis Prager
#122. Kidnapping people and selling them into slavery, as was done to Africans and others throughout history, is forbidden by the Eighth Commandment. Critics of the Bible who argue the Bible allowed such slavery, and defenders of such slavery who used the Bible, were both wrong. And lest there be any confusion about this issue, the very next chapter of the Torah specifies a person who kidnaps another - particularly when done with the intention of selling the victim into slavery - 'shall be put to death' (Exodus 21:16). #Quote by Dennis Prager

Intention quotes by Penelope Ward
#124. You can't have it both ways, Damien. You can't look at me the way you do … You can't keep me close and treat me as if I'm a huge part of your life and expect me not to get attached to you. It's unnatural and unhealthy, and whether it's your intention or not, you're hurting me. #Quote by Penelope Ward
Intention quotes by Seneca The Younger
#125. When some state or other offered Alexander a part of its territory and half of all its property he told them that 'he hadn't come to Asia with the intention of accepting whatever they cared to give him, but of letting them keep whatever he chose to leave them.' Philosophy, likewise, tells all other occupations: 'It's not my intention to accept whatever time is leftover from you; you shall have, instead, what I reject.' Give your whole mind to her. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Intention quotes by Chris Mars
#126. Sometimes I will portray the more normal-looking people as the monsters and then the more distorted - "uniquely formed" is the word I like to use, rather than monstrous - as the sympathetic characters in the painting. It's interesting because some people will get it right away, but a common reaction is to be a little off-put by it. And that is the whole idea. If it grabs somebody in a negative way, that's my intention. #Quote by Chris Mars
Intention quotes by Richard Baxter
#127. As holy zeal is the fervency of our grace, so sinful zeal is the intention and fervency of sin. #Quote by Richard Baxter
Intention quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#128. A machine is more blameless, more sinless even than any animal. It has no intentions whatsoever but our own. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin

#129. I am 1,000 percent for Tom Eagleton and I have no intention of dropping him from the ticket. #Quote by George McGovern
Intention quotes by Gloria Feldt
#130. Intention implies assuming you can and have every right to achieve your ambition and that you are powerful enough to make it happen. #Quote by Gloria Feldt
Intention quotes by Tennessee Williams
#131. He always entered the house as though he were entering it with the intention of tearing it down from inside #Quote by Tennessee Williams
Intention quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#132. One not only wants to be understood when one writes, but also quite as certainly not to be understood. It is by no means an objection to a book when someone finds it unintelligible: perhaps this might just have been the intention of its author, perhaps he did not want to be understood by "anyone". A distinguished intellect and taste, when it wants to communicate its thoughts, always selects its hearers; by selecting them, it at the same time closes its barriers against "the others". It is there that all the more refined laws of style have their origin: they at the same time keep off, they create distance, they prevent "access" (intelligibility, as we have said,) while they open the ears of those who are acoustically related to them. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Intention quotes by Rachel Hawkins
#133. I was on the first one when I felt his fingers encircle my wrist. "Sophie, come on. I don't want to fight with you."
Turning, I opened my mouth to say I didn't want to fight with him either. But before I could, I saw the telltale flash out of the corner of my eye, and the next thing I knew, my arm was jerking out of his grasp. "If you don't want to fight with her, maybe you shouldn't suggest she team up with people who want to kill her," my voice snarled.
Archer backed up so fast he nearly stumbled, and I wasn't sure I'd ever seen him look so freaked out. But he recovered quickly. "Elodie, if I wanted to talk to you, I'd do a séance or something. Maybe go on an episode of Ghost Hunters. But right now, I want to talk to Sophie. So clear out."
Elodie had no intention of doing that. "You always were a crappy boyfriend," she said. "Once you left, I chalked that up to you, you know, not actually liking me. But unless I'm blind as well as dead, you really like Sophie. In fact, hard as it is for me to fathom, I think you love her."
Shut up, shut up, shut up!
Screw that, she retorted. You two spend all your time making stupid jokes and being all witty. Someone has to get real.
"What's your point?" Archer asked, narrowing his eyes at me. Her. Whatever. God, this was getting confusing.
"Cal loves her, too, you know. And the last time I checked, he wasn't part of a cult of monster killers. I'm just saying that if you're going have loyalties that divid #Quote by Rachel Hawkins
Intention quotes by Theresa Hollis
#134. Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of being well-preserved, but to skid sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, still screaming, 'Whoo what a ride! #Quote by Theresa Hollis
Intention quotes by Italo Calvino
#135. I ask you to come down to earth," said the Baron in a calm, rather faint voice, "and to take up the duties of your station!"
"I have no intention of obeying you, my Lord Father," said Cosimo. "I am very sorry."
They were ill at ease, both of them, bored. Each knew what the other would say. "And what about your studies? Your devotions as a Christian?" said the father. "Do you intend to grown up like an American Savage?"
Cosimo was silent. These were thoughts he had not yet put to himself and had no wish to. Then he exclaimed: "Just because I'm a few yards higher up, does it mean that good teaching can't reach me?"
This was an able reply too, though it diminished, in a way, the range of his gesture; a sign of weakness.
His father realized this and became more pressing. "Rebellion cannot be measured by yards," said he. "Even when a journey seems no distance at all, it can have no return."
Now was the moment for my brother to produce some other noble reply, perhaps a Latin maxim, but at that instant none came into his head, though he knew so many by heart. Instead he suddenly got bored with all this solemnity, and shouted: "But from the trees I can piss farther," a phrase without much meaning, but which cut the discussion short.
As though they had heard the phrase, a shout went up from the ragamuffins around Porta Capperi. The Baron of Rondo's horse shied, the Baron pulled the reins and wrapped himself more tightly in his cloak, ready to leave. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Intention quotes by Wayne W. Dyer
#136. The more you see yourself as what you'd like to become, and act as if
what you want is already there, the more you'll activate those dormant
forces that will collaborate to transform your dream into your reality. #Quote by Wayne W. Dyer
Intention quotes by Diane Setterfield
#137. When you read a manuscript that has been damaged by water, fire, light or just the passing of the years, your eye needs to study not just the shape of the letters but other marks of production. The speed of the pen. The pressure of the hand on the page. Breaks and releases in the flow. You must relax. Think of nothing. Until you wake into a dream where you are at once a pen flying of vellum and the vellum itself with the touch of ink tickling your surface. Then you can read it. The intention of the writer, his thoughts, his hesitations, his longings and his meaning. You can read as clearly as if you were the very candlelight illuminating the page as the pen speeds over it. #Quote by Diane Setterfield
Intention quotes by Thomas Metzinger
#138. The illusion is irresistible. Behind every face there is a self. We see the signal of consciousness in a gleaming eye and imagine some ethereal space beneath the vault of the skull, lit by shifting patterns of feeling and thought, charged with intention. An essence. But what do we find in that space behind the face, when we look? The brute fact is there is nothing but material substance: flesh and blood and bone and brain ... You look down into an open head, watching the brain pulsate, watching the surgeon tug and probe, and you understand with absolute conviction that there is nothing more to it. There's no one there. #Quote by Thomas Metzinger
Intention quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#139. The interpretation of the laws is the proper and peculiar province of the courts. A constitution is, in fact, and must be regarded by the judges, as fundamental law. It therefore belongs to them to ascertain its meaning, as well as the meaning of any particular act proceeding from the legislative body. If there should happen to be an irreconcilable variance between the two, that which has the superior obligation and validity ought, of course, to be preferred; or, in other words, the Constitution ought to be preferred to the statute, the intention of the people to the intention of their agents. #Quote by Alexander Hamilton
Intention quotes by Anonymous
#140. Like all other self-respecting peoples, we have no intention of paying our debts. Or, to be more nearly accurate, the capitalists who expect to exploit us " for all time and eternity " have no intention of permitting us to pay our debts. They trump up new schemes to cause us to go more deeply into their debt. They intoxicate us with the strong fumes of "world power." They tell us how fine a thing it is to be reckoned among the great nations of the world. They cause us to maintain great military establishments and to build more and greater dreadnoughts. Thirty years ago we spent almost nothing on the navy and little more on the army. Now we are spending $300,000,000 a year on the army and navy. Almost a million dollars every week-day. Sixty-five cents of every dollar that is raised by the American government by taxation is spent for wars past or to come - for pensions, battleships or soldiers. #Quote by Anonymous

Intention quotes by C.S. Friedman
#143. Look," she told me. "A good kreda is very hard to find. I invested a lot of time and memory in you. I had no intention of giving all that up, just because you were going to be in a bad mood for a decade or two. #Quote by C.S. Friedman
Intention quotes by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
#144. By being with yourself, the 'I am', by watching yourself in your daily life with alert interest, with the intention to understand rather than judge, in full acceptance of whatever may emerge, because it is there, you encourage the deep to come to the surface, and enrich your life and consciousness with its captive energies. #Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Intention quotes by John C. Maxwell
#145. Intentional living is the bridge to significance. At the end of every year, I take time out to reflect and evaluate the events of the previous year - what went well and what needed improvement. From that inventory, I lay out my next year - how I intend to live, make the best use of time and maximize adding value to others. Success asks, 'How can I add value to myself?' Significance asks, 'How can I add value to others?' It is your intention that lends itself to significance. #Quote by John C. Maxwell
Intention quotes by Rupi Kaur
#146. i will tell you about selfish people. even when they know they will hurt you they walk into your life to taste you because you are the type of being they don't want to miss out on. you are too much shine to not be felt. so when they have gotten a good look at everything you have to offer. when they have taken your skin your hair and your secrets with them. when they realize how real this is. how much of a storm you are and it hits them.

that is when the cowardice sets in. that is when the person you thought they were is replaced by the sad reality of what they are. that is when they lose every fighting bone in their body and leave after saying you will find better than me.

you will stand there naked with half of them still hidden somewhere inside you and sob. asking them why they did it. why they forced you to love them when they had no intention of loving you back and they'll say something along the lines of i just had to try. i had to give it a chance. it was you after all.

but that isn't romantic. it isn't sweet. the idea that they were so engulfed by your existence they had to risk breaking it for the sake of knowing they weren't the one missing out. your existence meant that little next to their curiosity of you. #Quote by Rupi Kaur
Intention quotes by Selma Fraiberg
#147. We must remember when we speak of the "negativism" of the toddler that this is also the child who is intoxicated with the discoveries of the second year, a joyful child who is firmly bound to his parents and his new-found world through ties of love. The so-called negativism is one of the aspects of this development, but under ordinary circumstances it does not become anarchy. It's a kind of declaration of independence, but there is no intention to unseat the government. #Quote by Selma Fraiberg
Intention quotes by Josh James

Intention quotes by Gretchen Rubin
#152. It's easier to get rid of things when you're giving them to someone who can use them, but don't let this kind intention become a source of clutter itself. I have a friend who has multiple piles all over her house, each lovingly destined for a particular recipient. #Quote by Gretchen Rubin

Intention quotes by Daniel Kahneman
#154. We are pattern seekers, believers in a coherent world, in which regularities appear not by accident but as a result of mechanical causality or of someone´s intention. We do not expect to see regularity produced by a random process, and when we detect what appears to be a rule, we quickly reject the idea that the process is truly random. Random processes produce many sequences that convince people that the process is not random after all. #Quote by Daniel Kahneman
Intention quotes by Justine Musk
#155. It was simply this: silence is not a neutral position, whatever your intentions. Silence automatically supports the status quo. When you are a presence that lacks a voice, you create an empty space that another voice - a dominating voice that knows no boundaries - is only too happy to fill. #Quote by Justine Musk

Intention quotes by Marcel Duchamp

Intention quotes by Nicholas Sparks

Intention quotes by Martin Luther
#167. Here again Diatribe confidently brings in a gloss to suit herself, just as if Scripture were under her complete control. As for considering the prophet's meaning and intention, what need was there for a man of such authority to do that? All we need is: Erasmus says so, therefore it is so. #Quote by Martin Luther

Intention quotes by Maia Duerr
#170. As you consider how to take your next step toward a Liberation-Based Livelihood, often the first decision you need to consider is: Can I transform my current job into a vehicle for expressing my Core Intention? Or do I need to let go of it altogether?

This crossroads place is full of potential, and it can go in so many directions - not all of them positive! Bringing mindful awareness into the process greatly increases the possibility that you'll make a healthy decision rather than a reactive one. As I shared in my own story, for many years I tended to leap out of unsatisfactory work situations very quickly. My unhappiness usually followed me into the next job, only to manifest there in new ways.

A good starting point to figure out if it's time to leave your job is to consider if it's harmful to yourself and/or to others. If the answer is "yes," start planning your exit strategy as soon as possible. #Quote by Maia Duerr

#181. My intention is not to repudiate an African American identity but perhaps to resist how labels take hold, or to make it as slow a process as possible. That's more my sense of it. #Quote by Mark McMorris
Intention quotes by Donna Labermeier
#182. Success or failure is proportionate to intention. #Quote by Donna Labermeier
Intention quotes by Mary Leakey
#183. I quite liked having a baby - I think I won't put it more strongly than that. But I had no intention of allowing motherhood to disrupt my work as an archeologist. #Quote by Mary Leakey
Intention quotes by Iyanla Vanzant
#184. You must earn what you have. Life does not give you anything. You must give in order to get. You must stand up to the very thing that challenges you, look it in the face, get clear about your intention, order your thoughts and your life, and proceed without fear or hesitation. Life is not unfair. Along the way, you will always find bits of information and support to guide you to purpose. #Quote by Iyanla Vanzant
Intention quotes by Calvin Coolidge
#185. Our country represents nothing but peaceful intentions toward all the earth, but it ought not to fail to maintain such a military force as comports with the dignity and security of a great people. #Quote by Calvin Coolidge
Intention quotes by Luke Rhinehart
#186. Like the turtle's shell, the sense of self serves as a shield against stimulation and as a burden which limits mobility into possibly dangerous areas. The turtle rarely has to think about what's on the other side of his shell; whatever it is, it can't hurt him, can't even touch him. So, too, adults insist on the shell of a consistent self for themselves and their children and appreciate turtles for friends; they wish to be protected from being hurt or touched or confused or having to think. If a man can rely on consistency, he can afford not to notice people after the first few times. But I imagined a world in which each individual might be about to play the lover, the benefactor, the sponger, the attacker, the friend: and once known as one of the next day he might yet be anything. Would we pay attention to this person? Would life be boring? Would life be livable? I saw then clearly for the first time that the fear of failure keeps us huddled in the cave of self - a group of behavior patterns we have mastered and have no intention of risking failure by abandoning. #Quote by Luke Rhinehart
Intention quotes by William Beckford
#187. Shortly after we were in bed I began my story, but made it so absurd, so long, and so tiresome, that, as my intention was, I sent her to sleep, and should have gone to sleep myself - but dark plots are ever wakeful. ("The Story of Prince Barkiarokh") #Quote by William Beckford
Intention quotes by Donna Goddard
#188. You have to stay out of the game. It's deadly and no one ever wins. Everyone is a loser. Even seeming wins are short-lived and have the taste of bitterness mixed in with the satisfaction of personal gain. The ego is exclusive by nature. While the spirit seeks to include, the ego is unashamedly manipulative in its culling of people. The intention of self-aggrandisement is barely even covered over. The soul does not see people in terms of what it can gain. It seeks to share. It seeks to create by extension of its own and others' true nature. The ego is extremely changeable. It has no stability. Constantly guarding against attack and looking out for its own advantage, its perceptions and thus feelings towards others are ever-shifting. This creates unhappiness. The more we veer away from our true nature, the more unhappy we feel. When we align with our better self, we feel happy again. And so the process continues until the spaces between happiness are not as long and arduous. The presence or absence of personal peace is our barometer. It will guide us even if we are not sure of the way. #Quote by Donna Goddard
Intention quotes by Gary Vaynerchuk
#189. If your organization's intentions transcend the mere act of selling a product or service, and it is brave enough to expose its heart and soul, people will respond. They will connect. They will like you. They will talk. They will buy. #Quote by Gary Vaynerchuk
Intention quotes by Amit Ray
#190. Raindrops make rivers and ocean - our deep intention and positive actions will make the world free from nuclear weapons and wars. #Quote by Amit Ray
Intention quotes by Eric Jerome Dickey
#191. For some of us love comes into the room, kicks her
shoes off, finds the most comfortable sofa, and lies down, rests, has no intention of going anywhere. For others love walks in smoking a cigarette, checking her watch every two seconds, jittery, with one hand on the doorknob, heart rate up, always in sprinter's position, ready to run. #Quote by Eric Jerome Dickey
Intention quotes by Duff McKagan
#192. Life is not a journey to the grave With the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, But rather to skid in sideways Thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: Wow, what a ride! #Quote by Duff McKagan
Intention quotes by Duguet
#193. the smallest good deed is better than the grandest good intention #Quote by Duguet
Intention quotes by Larry Hagman
#194. It's my firm intention to whop cancer into submission and I truly believe I've given myself the best start possible by radically overhauling my diet and by staying true to my motto, which is: Don't worry, be happy, feel good. The first thing I did when I was diagnosed was to turn vegan. #Quote by Larry Hagman
Intention quotes by Wm. Paul Young
#195. You ... were created to be loved. So for you to live as if you were unloved is a limitation, not the other way around ... Living unloved is like clipping a bird's wing and removing its ability to fly ... A bird is not defined by being grounded but by his ability to fly. Remember this, humans are defined not by their limitations, but by the intentions I have for them; not by what they seem to be, but by everything it means to be created in my image. Love is NOT the limitation; love is the flying. I AM love. #Quote by Wm. Paul Young
Intention quotes by Jimi Hendrix
#196. Anybody can do anything, it's up to themselves. All it takes is the right intentions. #Quote by Jimi Hendrix
Intention quotes by Roland Barthes
#197. Other countries drink to get drunk, and this is accepted by everyone; in France, drunkenness is a consequence, never an intention. A drink is felt as the spinning out of a pleasure, not as the necessary cause of an effect which is sought: wine is not only a philtre, it is also the leisurely act of drinking. #Quote by Roland Barthes
Intention quotes by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
#198. I think everyone must settle for what is in the parameter of their own rights. No one must have an evil intention toward the territorial benefit or integrity of other nations. #Quote by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Intention quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#199. He was powerless because he had no precise desire, and this tortured him because he was vainly seeking something to desire. He could not even make himself stretch out his hand to switch on the light. The simple transition from intention to action seemed an unimaginable miracle. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Intention quotes by Taye Diggs
#200. Live theater is my favorite of all the mediums that I have worked in, so I have every intention on coming back to Broadway. #Quote by Taye Diggs
