Introspective quotes by Tyler Joseph
#1. I remember the first time I ever showed my parents a song that I had written. The content may have been a little darker than they were used to, or really introspective in a way that may have been uncomfortable. I thought they'd retaliate with some kind of judgment or concern about whether I was feeling all right, but they were proud of it. #Quote by Tyler Joseph
Introspective quotes by Caroline Leavitt
#2. E-readers are changing the way we read, and the author is now required to get out there and be a kind of showman, an unlikely role for introspective people used to working in their pajamas! #Quote by Caroline Leavitt
Introspective quotes by Thomas Metzinger
#3. As a first-order approximation, I would say that phenomenality is "availability for introspective attention": Consciousness is a property of all those mental contents to which you can in principle direct your attention. #Quote by Thomas Metzinger
Introspective quotes by Roseanne Barr
#4. I'm very introspective, and I mostly don't talk to people. I get into a real quiet, meditative place. #Quote by Roseanne Barr

Introspective quotes by Pierre Salinger
#6. I am not very introspective. #Quote by Pierre Salinger
Introspective quotes by Abraham Verghese
#7. I was temperamentally better suited to a cognitive discipline, to an introspective field - internal medicine, or perhaps psychiatry. The sight of the operating theater made me sweat. The idea of holding a scalpel caused coils to form in my belly. (It still does.) Surgery was the most difficult thing I could imagine.
And so I became a surgeon. #Quote by Abraham Verghese
Introspective quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#8. The afternoon our story begins, the quiet parts of being alive were the busiest: wind unlocking Windows; rainlight nudging curtains apart; fresh-cut grass tickling unsocked feet. Days like this made Alice want to set off on a great adventure. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Introspective quotes by Jarod Kintz
#9. Reflecting on myself - it can be introspective, depending on if I'm standing in front of a mirror at that moment or not. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Introspective quotes by Alain De Botton
#10. Newspapers are being read all around. The point is not, of course, to glean new information, but rather to coax the mind out of its sleep-induced introspective temper. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Introspective quotes by David  Arnold
#11. What if … what if … what if … I play the What If? game all the time. But it's rigged, is the thing. Impossible to win. Asking What If? can only lead to Maybe Things Could Have Been Different, via Was It My Fault? #Quote by David Arnold
Introspective quotes by Amit Chaudhuri
#12. the most dreamless and introspective time of day, a sort of midnight of the daytime #Quote by Amit Chaudhuri
Introspective quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#13. I believe, if you played your cards right, you could still marry her, Pongo.' 'Aren't you overlooking the trifling fact that I happen to be engaged to Hermione?' 'Slide out of it.' 'Ha!' 'It is what your best friends would advise. You are a moody, introspective young man, all too prone to look on the dark side of things. I shall never forget you that day at the dog races. Sombre is the only word to describe your attitude as the cop's fingers closed on your coat collar. You #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Introspective quotes by Nick Hornby
#14. Surely we all occasionally buy books because of a daydream we're having
a little fantasy about the people we might turn into one day, when our lives are different, quieter, more introspective, and when all the urgent reading, whatever that might be, has been done. We never arrive at that point, needless to say ... #Quote by Nick Hornby
Introspective quotes by Katherine Dunn
#15. There are the those whose own vulgar normality is so apparent and stultifying that they strive to escape it. They affect flamboyant behaviour and claim originality according to the fashionable eccentricities of their time. They claim brains or talent or indifference to mores in desperate attempts to deny their own mediocrity. #Quote by Katherine Dunn
Introspective quotes by Eudora Welty
#16. On the train I saw that world passing my window. It was when I came to see it was I who was passing that my self-centered childhood was over. But it was not until I began to write, that I found the world out there revealing, because memory had become attached to seeing, love had added itself to discovery, and because I recognized in my own continuing longing to keep going, the need I carried inside myself to know - the apprehension, first, and then the passion, to connect myself to it. Through travel I first became aware of the outside world; it was through travel that I found my own introspective way into becoming a part of it. This is, of course, simply saying that the outside world is the vital component of my inner life. My imagination takes its strength and guides its direction from what I see and hear and learn and feel and remember of my living world. But I was to learn slowly that both these worlds, outer and inner, were different from what they seemed to me in the beginning. #Quote by Eudora Welty
Introspective quotes by Sylvia Plath
#17. So I am led to one or two choices! Can I write? Will I write if I practice enough? How much should I sacrifice to writing anyway, before I find out if I'm any good? Above all, CAN A SELFISH, EGOCENTRIC, JEALOUS, AND UNIMAGINATIVE FEMALE WRITE A DAMN THING WORTHWHILE? Should I sublimate (my how we throw words around!) my selfishness in serving other people- through social or other such work? Would I then become more sensitive to other people and their problems? Would I be able to write honestly? Then of other beings besides a tall, introspective adolescent girl? I must be in contact with a wide variety of lives if I am not to become submerged in the routine of my own economic strata and class. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Introspective quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#18. The most introspective of hearts tends to be the most sentimental. We cling to the smallest moments from our past because we fear that emotion will never come our way again. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Introspective quotes by Alain De Botton
#19. Introspective reflections that might otherwise be liable to stall are helped along by the flow of the landscape ... #Quote by Alain De Botton
Introspective quotes by Stella Gibbons
#20. While she lay there with these old worn thoughts coming obediently into her mind, called there by habit and the familiar quiet of early morning, she was aware that at the back of her mind there was another thought that was not at all stale, but so fresh that it was nearly a feeling, with all a feeling's delicious power to kill thought. #Quote by Stella Gibbons
Introspective quotes by Edward Beauclerk Maurice
#21. ...Nyla was right in predicting that, for me, life would go on into old age and my promise has been kept too, for every now and then over the years, the ghosts have slipped out from the past and I have kept brief company with my friends of long ago. #Quote by Edward Beauclerk Maurice
Introspective quotes by Dalai Lama
#22. There is ... a tendency to think of the spiritual life as primarily introspective, divorced from the concerns of everyday life ... Faith that does not translate into actions is no faith at all. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Introspective quotes by Agatha Christie
#23. Arrangements. I remember his using the word arrangements. What a hateful word it is and all the things it stands for. The things in life that have grand words - Love - sex - life - death - hate - those aren't the things that govern existence at all. It's lots of other pettifogging, degrading things. Things you have to endure, things you never think about until they happen to you. Undertakers, arrangements for funerals, inquests. And servants coming into rooms and pulling the blinds down. Why should blinds be pulled down because Ellie was dead? Of all the stupid things! #Quote by Agatha Christie
Introspective quotes by Barbara Grizzuti Harrison
#24. I love medieval cities; they do not clamor for attention; they possess their souls - their riches - in quiet; formal, courteous, they reveal themselves slowly, stone by stone, garden by garden; hidden treasures wait calmly to be loved and yield to introspective wandering. #Quote by Barbara Grizzuti Harrison
Introspective quotes by John Keegan
#25. In 1861, on the eve of the Civil War, Grant, aged thirty-nine, with four children at home and scarcely a penny in the bank, had made no mark on the world and looked unlikely to do so, for all the boom conditions of mid-century America. His Plymouth Rock ancestry, his specialist education, his military rank, which together must have ensured him a sheltered corner in the life of the Old World, counted for nothing in the New. He lacked the essential quality to be what Jacques Barzun has called a "booster," one of those bustling, bonhomous, penny-counting, chance-grabbing optimists who, whether in the frenetic commercial activity of the Atlantic coast, in the emergent industries of New England and Pennsylvania or on the westward-moving frontier, were to make America's fortune. Grant, in his introspective and undemonstrative style, was a gentleman, and was crippled by the quality. #Quote by John Keegan
Introspective quotes by Tom Robbins
#26. All depression has its roots in self-pity, and all self-pity is rooted in people taking themselves too seriously."

At the time Switters had disputed her assertion. Even at seventeen, he was aware that depression could have chemical causes.

"The key word here is roots," Maestra had countered. "The roots of depression. For most people, self-awareness and self-pity blossom simultaneously in early adolescence. It's about that time that we start viewing the world as something other than a whoop-de-doo playground, we start to experience personally how threatening it can be, how cruel and unjust. At the very moment when we become, for the first time, both introspective and socially conscientious, we receive the bad news that the world, by and large, doesn't give a rat's ass. Even an old tomato like me can recall how painful, scary, and disillusioning that realization was. So, there's a tendency, then, to slip into rage and self-pity, which if indulged, can fester into bouts of depression."

"Yeah but Maestra - "

"Don't interrupt. Now, unless someone stronger and wiser - a friend, a parent, a novelist, filmmaker, teacher, or musician - can josh us out of it, can elevate us and show us how petty and pompous and monumentally useless it is to take ourselves so seriously, then depression can become a habit, which, in tern, can produce a neurological imprint. Are you with me? Gradually, our brain chemistry becomes conditioned to react to negative #Quote by Tom Robbins
Introspective quotes by Russell Brand
#27. As a person ... I'm a little more doubtful, introspective and analytical. #Quote by Russell Brand
Introspective quotes by Etaf Rum
#28. Her powerlessness even comforted her somehow. Knowing that she couldn't change things - that she didn't have a choice - made living it more bearable. #Quote by Etaf Rum
Introspective quotes by Peter Hook
#29. It was only after we recorded Unknown Pleasures that I could hear and begin to take notice of the words, and it was quite startling then to see how they changed between that album, where they were still quite detached and aggressive, to Closer, which is even darker and not detached at all but really introspective and quite frightening - especially of course when you listen to it in light of what later happened. #Quote by Peter Hook
Introspective quotes by William S. Burroughs
#30. The study of thinking machines teaches us more about the brain than we can learn by introspective methods. Western man is externalizing himself in the form of gadgets. #Quote by William S. Burroughs
Introspective quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#31. We really can't afford to live our lives walking in some sort of introspective darkness as if the darkness is the only thing that we can walk in. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Introspective quotes by Joshua Waitzkin
#32. One of the main focuses of my training sessions is to help individuals find their unique voices in the learning process. We all have our strengths, our weaknesses, our styles of learning, our personalities. Developing introspective sensitivity to these issues is critical to long-term success. #Quote by Joshua Waitzkin
Introspective quotes by Wayne Dyer
#33. Become slower in your journey through life. Practice yoga and meditation if you suffer from 'hurry sickness.' Become more introspective by visiting quiet places such as churches, museums, mountains and lakes. Give yourself permission to read at least one novel a month for pleasure. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Introspective quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#34. It is not love that keeps us stuck in the past. Love fades over time. What introspective hearts seek is simply unanswered questions about why terrible things can happen to very good people. Closure never comes from reflection. It only comes from God's guidance and promptings. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Introspective quotes by Heather O'Neill
#35. Sometimes when you are standing still and it's snowing, you think that you hear music. You can't tell where it's coming from either. I wondered if we all really did have a soundtrack, but we just get so used to it that we can't hear it anymore, the same way that we block out the sound of our own heartbeat. #Quote by Heather O'Neill
Introspective quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#36. I like to see the people arriving. I like to imagine their lives. It keeps me from thinking too much about my own. A man shouldn't be too introspective. It weakens him. That is the difference between Tennessee Williams and Ernest Hemingway. I'm a Hemingway man myself although I don't believe it is right to hunt lions. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Introspective quotes by Tom Ford
#37. I am really a loner after all; I am really not a social person. Because of my job, people think I am out every night, but I really hate all that. I am somebody who likes to be alone and see some close friends. I am a shy and introspective person. #Quote by Tom Ford
Introspective quotes by Michele Sinclair
#38. She loved her sisters.They were incredibly different.When Lily laughed, Edythe was serious, carefree versus introspective. They were alike in only one respect: They were both undeniably beautiful. And for Bronywyn, their beauty was both a blessing and a curse. Any man who had ever shown remotely any interest in her always ended up gravitating toward one of her youngest sisters. Through them she had been able to see men for who they really were. They had saved her from making many a mistake in her younger days when she still believed someone was coming...someone who would love her and only her.
Someone who would be her hero.
Someone like the ghost who had come to her rescue that very afternoon. #Quote by Michele Sinclair
Introspective quotes by Trevanian
#39. The years passed unnoticed and unremembered, and one autumn morning I found myself suddenly forty-five years old. It was a time for weighing youthful hopes against mature accomplishment, for it was quite certain that I had by then done all I was ever going to do. Sitting alone at my desk that evening of my forty-fifth birthday I asked that least original of introspective questions: Where had it all gone? And the somewhat less banal question: What, after all, had it been? My #Quote by Trevanian
Introspective quotes by Karl Wiggins
#40. There is nothing more annoying than somebody who is really thick but who believes with absolute conviction that he is more intelligent than you. In other words, they tend to be very self-contained, introspective and deep down they're probably striving for affection. Yet they have no way of going about attaining this, so they tend to rub people up the wrong way. #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Introspective quotes by Oliver Sacks
#41. I had no room now for this fear, or for any other fear, because I was filled to the brim with music. And even when it was not literally (audibly) music, there was the music of my muscle-orchestra playing - "the silent music of the body," in Harvey's lovely phrase. With this playing, the musicality of my motion, I myself became the music - "You are the music, while the music lasts." A creature of muscle, motion and music, all inseparable and in unison with each other - except for that unstrung part of me, that poor broken instrument which could not join in and lay motionless and mute without tone or tune. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Introspective quotes by Charlie Sheen
#42. It's not about the big deal you struck that day, it's not about the new car, it's not about the obvious stuff. It's about that little introspective moment you had in the middle of all that. Those are moments between the moments, and that's where life is. #Quote by Charlie Sheen
Introspective quotes by Sydney Paige McCutcheon
#43. If I'm afraid to fall then how will I ever fly? #Quote by Sydney Paige McCutcheon
Introspective quotes by Tabitha Vohn
#44. I was thinking of how, when we think of loss in our life, how our sense of 'home' was the first thing to go. You know, we lose that place of childhood innocence, of feeling protected. And so many of us spend the rest of our lives trying to reclaim that place called home, that life made simple again. #Quote by Tabitha Vohn
Introspective quotes by Donna Tartt
#45. And what does a person with such a romantic temperament seek in the study of the classics? He asked this as if, having had the good fortune to catch such a rare bird as myself, he was anxious to extract my opinion while I was still captive in his office.
'If by romantic you mean solitary and introspective,' I said, 'I think romantics are frequently the best classicists.'
He laughed. 'The great romantics are often failed classicists. But that's beside the point, isn't it? #Quote by Donna Tartt
Introspective quotes by Will Weaver
#46. She wrote that she, too, always felt an outsider "...even to myself. #Quote by Will Weaver
Introspective quotes by Tom Robbins
#47. For most people, self-awareness and self-pity blossom simultaneously in early adolescence. It's about that time that we start viewing the world as something other than a whoop-de-doo playground, we start to experience personally how threatening it can be, how cruel and unjust. At the very moment when we become, for the first time, both introspective and socially conscientious, we receive the bad news that the world, by and large, doesn't give a rat's ass. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Introspective quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#48. His eyes shone, and his cheek was flushed with the exhilaration of the master workman who sees his work lie ready before him. A very different Holmes, this active, alert man, from the introspective and pallid dreamer of Baker Street. I felt, as I looked upon that supple, figure, alive with nervous energy, that it was indeed a strenuous day that awaited us. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Introspective quotes by Deborah Moggach
#49. The traditional writer is a sensitive only child, asthmatic, who sits on the window seat watching the drops of rain slide down the pane, very introspective. I'm not inward-looking. I would never go to a shrink. I don't want to know what I'm thinking. I don't really like discussions in my family. It may be an avoidance thing. #Quote by Deborah Moggach
Introspective quotes by Michael A. Stackpole
#50. The nice thing about being an adolescent is being able to make mature decisions when you need them and being able to just flow alone with life when you don't. #Quote by Michael A. Stackpole
Introspective quotes by Yann Martel
#51. My zoology thesis was a functional analysis of the thyroid gland of the three-toed sloth. I chose the sloth because its demeanour - calm, quiet and introspective - did something to soothe my shattered self. #Quote by Yann Martel
Introspective quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#52. Whatever activity one sees in this world, it is discharge of previously charged karma. Man has nothing to do with it. He only does egoism here of, 'I did samayik (introspective meditation).' He creates a karmic account! He becomes entrapped! He takes enjoyment from tasting sweetness of subtle pride of doer-ship. #Quote by Dada Bhagwan
Introspective quotes by Donna Tartt
#53. And what does a person with such romantic temperament seek in the study of the classics?
If by romantic you mean solitary and introspective, I think romantics are frequently the best classicists. #Quote by Donna Tartt
Introspective quotes by Colin Powell
#54. Every organization needs to be introspective, transparent, and honest with itself. This only works if everyone is unified on the goals and purposes of the organization and there is trust within the team. High-performing, successful organizations build cultures of introspection and trust and never lose sight of their purpose. #Quote by Colin Powell
Introspective quotes by Ellen Barkin
#55. I am to a fault an introspective person. But I am not a reflective person - except for a big mistake, and then I really think about it. #Quote by Ellen Barkin
Introspective quotes by Alasdair Gray
#56. He may gain consciousness and feel like talking. I could leave a nurse here but their damned professional cheeriness depresses introspective men. Talk to him if he feels like it, and if he wants a doctor call me on this. #Quote by Alasdair Gray
Introspective quotes by David Foster Wallace
#57. This is why they started us here so young: to give ourselves away before the age when the questions 'why' and 'to what' grow real beaks and claws. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Introspective quotes by Justin Young
#58. How we look at life depends on how we see ourselves. #Quote by Justin Young
Introspective quotes by Anatole France
#59. The wonder is, not that the field of stars is so vast, but that man has measured it. #Quote by Anatole France
Introspective quotes by Edward O. Wilson
#60. If the heuristic and analytic power of science can be joined with the introspective creativity of the humanities, human existence will rise to an infinitely more productive and interesting meaning. #Quote by Edward O. Wilson
Introspective quotes by Simone Elkeles
#61. Why shouldn't I be introspective? We dont' make sense."
"Neither do Chocolate and Peanut Butter, but it somehow works." He says "Somehow the mixture of two things is genius. #Quote by Simone Elkeles
Introspective quotes by Darryl Steven Markowitz
#62. The problem is, we have too many cowardly, spineless, selfish people that would sacrifice their children's future just to avoid the sacrifice love requires of them in the present. And they expect their children to respect them for that? Do they think we're idiots just because we're young? #Quote by Darryl Steven Markowitz
Introspective quotes by Toba Beta
#63. Always try coercing others proves one doesn't want to change himself.
(Suka maksain pendapat adalah bukti seseorang tak siap berubah). #Quote by Toba Beta
Introspective quotes by Al Oerter
#64. To exercise at or near capacity is the best way I know of reaching a true introspective state. If you do it right, it can open all kinds of inner doors. #Quote by Al Oerter
Introspective quotes by Chamique Holdsclaw
#65. One thing I've become is introspective. #Quote by Chamique Holdsclaw
Introspective quotes by Jon Katz
#66. My goats are not contemplative, accepting, or introspective. They are the Greek chorus of my farm, sometimes of my life. They watch me closely and remind me that I am foolish. #Quote by Jon Katz
Introspective quotes by Harry Reasoner
#67. This is why being a helicopter pilot is so different from being an airplane pilot, and why in generality, airplane pilots are open, clear-eyed, buoyant extroverts, and helicopter pilots are brooding introspective anticipators of trouble. They know if something bad has not happened it is about to. #Quote by Harry Reasoner
Introspective quotes by Maxine Kumin
#68. I was a very, I think, lonely kid, very introspective. I felt very much at odds with my environment and my culture ... Probably a genetic flaw. I can't really explain it. #Quote by Maxine Kumin
Introspective quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#69. In evaluating ourselves, we tend to be long on our weaknesses and short on our strengths. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Introspective quotes by Ryan Montgomery
#70. I don't think I ever would have had a problem being vulnerable or introspective but the problem with drinking is it's very hard to zero in on one part. You're not dealing with anything in real time, you're constantly moving and constantly going. You're drinking to get away from things, things your dealing with. My wife might be calling me trying to argue and I don't wanna deal with it so I just go drink and by the time we talk again I'm so drunk I just don't care. I'll just deal with it however. #Quote by Ryan Montgomery
Introspective quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#71. It has been more profitable for us to bind together in the wrong direction than to be alone in the right one. Those who have followed the assertive idiot rather than the introspective wise person have passed us some of their genes. This is apparent from a social pathology: psychopaths rally followers. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Introspective quotes by Sheryl Lee
#72. I just turned 30 so I got really introspective as you do, questioning my life. And when I stopped and sort of looked back at the past decade, I realized I had done more work than I thought I had done. #Quote by Sheryl Lee
Introspective quotes by Caroline Knapp
#73. Was he smart enough? Introspective enough? Was it just enough to love him, or should I attach myself to someone who seemed farther ahead of me, someone smarter and more ambitious than me, who'd be sure to carry me along into the version of adulthood I thought I should be striving for? #Quote by Caroline Knapp
Introspective quotes by Rosie Perez
#74. In my circle of friends, I've always been loud and funny and talkative. But as soon as I step out of that circle, I get very quiet and introspective. I don't want the spotlight on me. #Quote by Rosie Perez
Introspective quotes by Katherine Dunn
#75. There are those whose own vulgar normality is so apparent and stultifying that they strive to escape it. They affect flamboyant behavior and claim originality according to the fashionable eccentricities of their time. They claim brains or talent or indifference to mores in desperate attempts to deny their own mediocrity. These are frequently artists and performers, adventurers and wide-life devotees.
Then there are those who feel their own strangeness and are terrified by it. They struggle toward normalcy. They suffer to exactly that degree that they are unable to appear normal to others, or to convince themselves that their aberration does not exist. These are true freaks, who appear, almost always, conventional and dull. #Quote by Katherine Dunn
Introspective quotes by Vee Hoffman
#76. Sobriety had happened at a strange time in my sex life, and maybe I wouldn't have held onto it had it not been for both of the men involved in the transition. But sobriety made me realize, in lonely moments and long introspective jags, that while sex wasn't the only thing that I was good at, it was still something I enjoyed. The difference was choosing the people I invited to the playground, so to speak. If Eren had been any less fired up than he was, pushing firmly and slowly into me, watching my face for silent cues while I pushed my head back into the bed, stretching my neck and growling, reacquainting myself with the feeling of being filled, it wouldn't have been right.

But it was right. I'd chosen well. I almost laughed when he was completely inside of me and I got swept up in the truth of the matter, the reasonably overwhelming knowledge that yeah, this was something I might not fuck up. And god, I loved sex. God, I loved not having to feel like I was hiding inside of its fortress. #Quote by Vee Hoffman
Introspective quotes by Eudora Welty
#77. Through travel I first became aware of the outside world; it was through travel that I found my own introspective way into becoming a part of it. #Quote by Eudora Welty
Introspective quotes by Paul Desmond
#78. Complexity can be a trap. You can have a ball developing a phrase, inverting it, playing it in different keys and times and all. But it's really more introspective than communicative. Like a crossword puzzle compared to a poem. #Quote by Paul Desmond
Introspective quotes by William James
#79. The attempt at introspective analysis ... is in fact like seizing a spinning top to catch its motion, or trying to turn up the gas quickly enough to see the darkness. #Quote by William James
Introspective quotes by Mark Edwards
#80. They lyrical content has grown more introspective and less abstract. I don't know if that's good or bad ... Sometimes it feels a little raw to be putting so much of myself out there. #Quote by Mark Edwards
Introspective quotes by Brian Williams
#81. Obedience makes our heart receptive to what God has already done. It doesn't move Him; His heart is always aflame toward us. Generally, this revelation is not taught correctly by well-meaning ministers. The incorrect way that obedience is taught causes people to be overly-introspective, obsessing over their inadequacies and failures. It breeds SELF-ESTEEM issues instead of promoting CHRIST-ESTEEM wholeness. It breeds a destructive DEMAND-CONSCIOUSNESS (law) instead of a liberating SUPPLY-CONSCIOUSNESS (grace). #Quote by Brian Williams
Introspective quotes by Robert Kirkman
#82. To me, the best zombie movies aren't the splatter fests of gore and violence with goofy characters and tongue in cheek antics. Good zombie movies show us how messed up we are, they make us question our station in society ... and our society's station in the world. They show us gore and violence and all that cool stuff too ... but there's always an undercurrent of social commentary and thoughtfulness. #Quote by Robert Kirkman
Introspective quotes by Daniel M. Wegner
#83. The initiation of the voluntary act appears to be an unconscious cerebral process. Clearly, free will or free choice of whether to act now could not be the initiating agent, contrary to the widely held view. This is of course also contrary to each individual's own introspective feeling that he/she consciously initiates such voluntary acts; this provides an important empirical example of the possibility that the subjective experience of a mental causality need not necessarily reflect the actual causative relationship between mental and brain events #Quote by Daniel M. Wegner
Introspective quotes by Oliver
#84. I like performing because it's direct contact with live people. I write a good deal of the time but that's introspective creation rather than interaction. #Quote by Oliver
Introspective quotes by Jason Versey
#85. Most organized religions often succeed in enslaving the soul through useless traditions, prejudices and ideological divisions. Yet, true spiritual enlightenment and everlasting freedom can only be found in the perfect wisdom that LOVE is the truest most fundamental foundation of every faith which should, inevitably, lead every seeker down the path to the most profound introspective spiritual understanding one could ever know...we are all one. #Quote by Jason Versey
Introspective quotes by Jon Bon Jovi
#86. JON: Lost Highway was an introspective record because we took a look at ourselves and left ourselves open to scrutiny by sharing those situations and feelings beyond the four of us. It was a great growth record. We were in a place where we had something to write about and turn our lives into big, broad subject matter. #Quote by Jon Bon Jovi
Introspective quotes by Carrie Fisher
#87. The trouble with getting introspective when you're pregnant is that you never know who you might run into. #Quote by Carrie Fisher
Introspective quotes by William  James
#88. But psychology is passing into a less simple phase. Within a few years what one may call a microscopic psychology has arisen in Germany, carried on by experimental methods, asking of course every moment for introspective data, but eliminating their uncertainty by operating on a large scale and taking statistical means. This method taxes patience to the utmost, and could hardly have arisen in a country whose natives could be bored. Such Germans as Weber, Fechner, Vierordt, and Wundt obviously cannot ; and their success has brought into the field an array of younger experimental psychologists, bent on studying the elements of the mental life, dissecting them out from the gross results in which they are embedded, and as far as possible reducing them to quantitative scales. The simple and open method of attack having done what it can, the method of patience, starving out, and harassing to death is tried ; the Mind must submit to a regular siege, in which minute advantages gained night and day by the forces that hem her in must sum themselves up at last into her overthrow. There is little of the grand style about these new prism, pendulum, and chronograph-philosophers. They mean business, not chivalry. What generous divination, and that superiority in virtue which was thought by Cicero to give a man the best insight into nature, have failed to do, their spying and scraping, their deadly tenacity and almost diabolic cunning, will doubtless some day bring about.

Introspective quotes by Lois Lowry
#89. I think I've written 40 books, and none of them have been heavy on action. I'm an introspective person. #Quote by Lois Lowry
Introspective quotes by Angela Korra'ti
#90. Geeks are not the world's rowdiest people. We're quiet and introspective, and usually more comfortable communing with our keyboards or a good book than each other. Our idea of how to paint the
Emerald City red involves light liquor, heavy munchies, and marathon sessions of video games of the 'giant robots shooting each other and everything else in sight' variety. We debate competing lines of software or gaming consoles with passion, and dissect every movie, television show, and novel in the science fiction, fantasy, and horror genres.

With as many of us as there are in this town, people inevitably find ways to cater to us when we get in the mood to spend our hard-earned dollars. Downtown Seattle boasts grandiose geek magnets, like the Experience Music Project and the Experience Science Fiction museum, but it has much humbler and far more obscure attractions too, like the place we all went to for our ship party that evening: a hole-in-the-wall bar called the Electric Penguin on Capitol Hill. #Quote by Angela Korra'ti
Introspective quotes by Mark Zuckerberg
#91. When I'm introspective about the last few years I think the biggest mistake that we made, as a company, is betting too much on HTML5 as opposed to native ... because it just wasn't there. And it's not that HTML5 is bad. I'm actually, on long-term, really excited about it. One of the things that's interesting is we actually have more people on a daily basis using mobile Web Facebook than we have using our iOS or Android apps combined. So mobile Web is a big thing for us. #Quote by Mark Zuckerberg
Introspective quotes by Tupac Shakur
#92. I just put out a hardcore double album. Next I'm gonna put out an introspective album. #Quote by Tupac Shakur
Introspective quotes by David Eagleman
#93. We are not conscious of most things until we ask ourselves questions about them #Quote by David Eagleman
Introspective quotes by Wes Craven
#94. You can look at what's happened to America in the last years and say a lot of people were asleep. A lot of people were not staying awake and watching what was going on and facing the pain of that and dealing with it.I don't care if the rest of the audience doesn't think along those lines at all, because the audience is a huge spectrum of people, from people who are introspective to people who just want to be scared and have fun, and all the points in between. #Quote by Wes Craven
Introspective quotes by Aleksandra Ninkovic
#95. By not letting me turn you into something you're not, you've helped me be more of myself. #Quote by Aleksandra Ninkovic
Introspective quotes by Leigh Ann Henion
#96. To call someone a navel gazer on the mainland is to say that they're narcissistic, self-absorbed in their introspective pursuits. This perspective, I realize, might be the very reason I've come to think of a spiritual life as some sort of luxury. I'm suddenly struck by the irony of a culture that seems to point to personal spiritual quests as somehow selfish when, in the end, those journeys, like the discredited belly button, are ultimately a search for connectivity. #Quote by Leigh Ann Henion
Introspective quotes by Benjamin Watson
#97. I'M INTROSPECTIVE, because sometimes I want to take "our" side without looking at the facts in situations like these. Sometimes I feel like it's us against them. Sometimes I'm just as prejudiced as people I point fingers at. And that's not right. How can I look at white skin and make assumptions but not want assumptions made about me? That's not right. #Quote by Benjamin Watson
Introspective quotes by Winston Damarillo
#98. If there is one thing to do, it is to do introspective soul searching to find your passion. #Quote by Winston Damarillo
Introspective quotes by Sharon Kay Penman
#99. He could not change his nature, could not help being cautious, deliberate, introspective, not traits to be scorned by any means, but traits that seemed dull, bland - even to him - when compared with Davydd's hell-for-leather dazzle. #Quote by Sharon Kay Penman
Introspective quotes by Aleksandra Ninkovic
#100. Divine does not tempt us to see what's in our hearts, it tempts us so we could see what's in our hearts. #Quote by Aleksandra Ninkovic
Introspective quotes by Graham Saunders
#101. title from the second album of the introspective beat group Joy Division, Closer #Quote by Graham Saunders
Introspective quotes by Margaret Mead
#102. As long as any adult thinks that he, like the parents and teachers of old, can become introspective, invoking his own youth to understand the youth before him, he is lost. #Quote by Margaret Mead
Introspective quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#103. An introspective person seeks to attain a pure state of consciousness by merging finitude in infinity and by expressing the rapture of the soul through the contemplation and adoration of beauty. In this brief interlude of time, I surrender to becoming a cog in the roadway, an insentient time traveler, a ward of eternity, a day-tripper, a nighttime dream weaver, a blip in the cosmos, a freebase glob of energy, an imaginable disk of bundled vitality that wants for nothing. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Introspective quotes by Iain Reid
#104. We accept, reject, and discern through symbols. These are as important to our understanding of life, our understanding of existence and what has value, whats worthwhile, as math and science ... it's all part of how we work through things, how we make decisions. #Quote by Iain Reid
Introspective quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#105. Many bad golfers marry, feeling that a wife's loving solicitude may improve their game. But they are rugged, thick-skinned men, not sensitive and introspective. It is one of the chief merits of golf that non-success at the game induces a certain amount of decent humilty, which keeps a man from pluming himself too much on any petty triumphs he may achieve in other walks of life. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Introspective quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#106. To attempt to know myself 'apart' from God is to choose to know nothing more than 'a part' of myself. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Introspective quotes by Richard Gere
#107. I have made plenty of mistakes. The key to life is to learn from them. I have been a little too introspective, but I think that stemmed from insecurity or shyness. I took a long time to grow up. #Quote by Richard Gere
Introspective quotes by Paul Broks
#108. Our ethics and systems of justice, our entire moral order, are founded on the notion of society as a collective of individual selves-- autonomous, introspective, accountable agents. If this self-reflective, moral agent is revealed to be illusory, what then? #Quote by Paul Broks
Introspective quotes by Drew Goddard
#109. Filmmaking is incredible introspective. It forces you to sort of examine yourself in new ways. #Quote by Drew Goddard
Introspective quotes by Muriel Rukeyser
#110. I am haunted by interrupted acts,
introspective as a leper, enchanted
by a repulsive clew,
a gross and fugitive movement of the limbs.
Is this the love that shook the lights to flame? #Quote by Muriel Rukeyser
Introspective quotes by Elizabeth Bowen
#111. Darling, I don't want you; I've got no place for you; I only want what you give. I don't want the whole of anyone ... What you want is the whole of me-isn't it, isn't it?-and the whole of me isn't there for anybody. In that full sense you want me I don't exist. #Quote by Elizabeth Bowen
Introspective quotes by Norman Spinrad
#112. For Feric Jaggar is essentially a monster: a narcissistic psychopath with paranoid obsessions. His total self-assurance and certainty is based on a total lack of introspective self-knowledge. In a sense, such a human being would be all surface and no interior. He would be able to manipulate the surface of social reality by projecting his own pathologies upon it, but he would never be able to share in the inner communion of interpersonal relationships. Such a creature could give a nation the iron leadership and sense of certainty to face a mortal crisis, but at what cost? Led by the likes of a Feric Jaggar, we might gain the world at the cost of our souls. No, #Quote by Norman Spinrad
Introspective quotes by Peter Dinklage
#113. I think a lot of great male comic actors are introspective, quiet personalities, which I really admire. But they are really able to turn it up when the camera's on. #Quote by Peter Dinklage
Introspective quotes by Cynthia Voigt
#114. The people they had been last summer, the person she had been
Dicey guessed she'd never be afraid again, not the way she
had been all summer. She had taken care of them all, sometimes well, sometimes badly. And they had covered the distances.
For most of the summer, they had been unattached. Nobody knew who they were or what they were doing. It didn't matter
what they did, as long as they all stayed together. Dicey remembered that feeling, of having things pretty much her own way.
And she remembered the feelings of danger. It was a little bit like being a wild animal, she thought to herself.
Dicey missed that wildness. She knew she would never have it again.
And she missed the sense of Dicey Tillerman against the whole world and doing all right. #Quote by Cynthia Voigt
Introspective quotes by Jean-Paul Sartre
#115. Consciousness does not know its own character
unless in determining itself reflectively from the standpoint of another's point of view. It exists its character in pure distinction non-thematically and non-thetically in the proof which it effects of its own contingency and in the nihilation by which it recognizes and surpasses its facticity. This is why pure introspective self-description does not give us character. Proust's hero 'does not have' a directly apprehensible character; he is presented first as being conscious of himself as an ensemble of general reactions common to all men ... in which each man can recognise himself. This is because these reactions belong to the general 'nature' of the psychic. #Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre
Introspective quotes by Tim Lucas
#116. An introspective man who doesn't keep a diary consigns himself to a special hell #Quote by Tim Lucas
Introspective quotes by Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud
#117. The Founder-Director purposely designed the building in a U-shape, in the interior of which is a courtyard with a central fountain, to reflect the introspective nature of a true Muslim, a universal and perfect man. These interior parts of the building are hidden from the outside in contrast to secularized buildings which face the road and are exposed to the busy traffic of secular life and are therefore without real privacy and introspective spirit. #Quote by Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud
Introspective quotes by L.A. Rosenberg
#118. Creation, in all its forms, is where I find beauty. If I could travel as far outward as I have inward, I would know with the utmost conviction that distance does not exist. #Quote by L.A. Rosenberg
Introspective quotes by Donny Most
#119. I've always been pretty serious and introspective. #Quote by Donny Most
Introspective quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#120. We learn about life by exploring the texture and depth of space that composes our private inner world. In solitude we revisit our wounded feelings, sins, doubts, and deepest despair, replay poignant memories of loved ones, project what we are becoming, and ascertain the purpose of our being. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Introspective quotes by Dean Koontz
#121. The heart is an artist that paints over what profoundly disturbs it, leaving on the canvas a less dark, less sharp version of the truth. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Introspective quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#122. Someone with a low degree of epistemic arrogance is not too visible, like a shy person at a cocktail party. We are not predisposed to respect humble people, those who try to suspend judgement. Now contemplate epistemic humility. Think of someone heavily introspective, tortured by the awareness of his own ignorance. He lacks the courage of the idiot, yet has the rare guts to say "I don't know." He does not mind looking like a fool or, worse, an ignoramus. He hesitates, he will not commit, and he agonizes over the consequences of being wrong. He introspects, introspects, and introspects until he reaches physical and nervous exhaustion.
This does not necessarily mean he lacks confidence, only that he holds his own knowledge to be suspect. I will call such a person an epistemocrat; the province where the laws are structured with this kind of human fallibility in mind I will can an epistemocracy. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Introspective quotes by Joshua Waitzkin
#123. Our minds are all different and I believe cultivating a keen introspective sensitivity is absolutely essential in discovering our potential. #Quote by Joshua Waitzkin
Introspective quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#124. Oh yes, I am frequently driven to an enraged frenzy by the blatantly crass actions of others. But to be painfully honest, that anger is much less driven by the reality of their actions and far more fueled by the realization that everything I am is everything that I hate in them. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Introspective quotes by Virginia Woolf
#125. I exist only in the soles of my feet and in the tired muscles of my thighs. We have been walking for hours it seems. But where? I cannot remember. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Introspective quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#126. When our spontaneous emotions clash with our instilled emotions, which have been molded by our social community, we might, gradually, see dominoes falling, as we come to experience more authentic emotions, which are arising after 'conscious reflection'. The confrontation of impulsive, ingrained and introspective emotions may, naturally, create a bewildering trilemma in our mind. ("Disruption" ) #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Introspective quotes by Darryl Steven Markowitz
#127. My daughter, people are only used to seeing the glorified in a story, because a story is only a tiny, tiny piece of a person's life. Legends, sacred writings, they're all like that. But I assure you, dear child, every one of those people up there on that wall felt like, thought like, and suffered like you! #Quote by Darryl Steven Markowitz
Introspective quotes by Anne Heche
#128. I think it takes an introspective person to want to go into the theater and see the dark side of themselves. #Quote by Anne Heche
Introspective quotes by A. Zukowski
#129. Thank you." I am exhausted, so I only reply lazily, "What for?" He kisses me again. "For coming back and sleeping with me like this." I am never introspective about the decisions I make. I may have broken my principle but it feels good to be wanted by Ali. I'm so exhausted that I soon fall into a slumber. I enjoy a rare night of restful sleep and wake to find an empty space beside me in bed. The smell of fresh coffee tells me where Ali is. I inhale his leftover scent on the pillow; I can't help but smile #Quote by A. Zukowski
Introspective quotes by Paul Harding
#130. Don't write your books for people who won't like them. Give yourself wholly to the kind of book you want to write and don't try to please readers who like something different. Otherwise, you'll end up with the worst of both worlds. I write lyrical, introspective, experiential books concerned with consciousness and perception. If a reader wants to know what my protagonist's insurance policies are, he'll be better off curling up with a nice cup of chamomile tea and an actuarial table. Similarly, don't write your books for bad readers. Your books will suffer from bad readers no matter what, so write them for brilliant, big-brained and big-hearted people who will love you for feeding their minds with feasts of beauty. #Quote by Paul Harding
Introspective quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#131. She was a collector of reflections looking for souls that could see deeply inside her soul. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Introspective quotes by Heather Demetrios
#132. Sia's introspective, not depressing. There's a difference. #Quote by Heather Demetrios
Introspective quotes by Vera Jane Cook
#133. Air hung heavy like wet clothes caught flapping in the rain made it hard to breathe. #Quote by Vera Jane Cook
Introspective quotes by Tasha Smith
#134. I'm a lot more introspective than one would believe. #Quote by Tasha Smith
Introspective quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#135. Introspective souls are often tormented by their passionate visions. This is because visionaries see what shall be and wake up to what is. However, if you couldn't see a glimpse of the city lights while stranded in the forest, how would you ever know to walk in that direction? Sometimes, your vision can't be put into action, until you gather the learning experiences, along your journey first. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Introspective quotes by David Foster Wallace
#136. I felt more solidly composed, now that I was horizontal. I was impossible to knock down. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Introspective quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#137. The human brain acts as a mere transducer of electrical energy. Our senses are on full alert when we are in danger. In contrast, when we are relatively safe and secure, our senses tend to slumber, making the world pass by analogous to a fuzzy dream composed of meaningless impressions. Inner turmoil causes energy surges in the brain. A spontaneously convulsing brain is an artistic brain. It is useful to write whenever one is in pain or feeling particularly introspective. Trauma awakens us from a sedated life. A clicked on brain displays greater sensitivity to the synesthetic perceptions that fill life with a diversity of sounds, colors, tastes, tactile feelings, and odors. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Introspective quotes by Dannika Dark
#138. Nothing is forever. Except atoms. #Quote by Dannika Dark
Introspective quotes by Anthony Bloom
#139. St. John Chrysostom said 'Find the door of your heart, you will discover it is the door of the kingdom of God.' So it is inward that we must turn, and not outward - but inward in a very special way. I'm not saying that we must become introspective. I don't mean that we must go inward in the way one does in psychoanalysis or psychology. It is not a journey into my own inwardness, it is a journey through my own self, in order to emerge from the deepest level of self into the place where He is, the point at which God and I meet. #Quote by Anthony Bloom
Introspective quotes by C.E. O'Grady
#140. Memories are truths we have chosen. #Quote by C.E. O'Grady
Introspective quotes by Edwin S. Shneidman
#141. Death
some form of termination
is the universal ending of all living things; but only man, by virtue of his verbally reportable introspective life, can conceptualize his own cessation. #Quote by Edwin S. Shneidman
Introspective quotes by Jennifer Harrison
#142. Love: the impossible combination of being IN the deep end and being OFF the deep end. #Quote by Jennifer Harrison
Introspective quotes by C.J. Ellisson
#143. I don't want to lead. Never have. Some people might consider such a trait as a weakness, but I don't. Knowing your own strengths and weaknesses takes a lot of soul searching and honesty
something not everyone will take the time to explore. Doing so might reveal things they'd rather leave undiscovered. #Quote by C.J. Ellisson
Introspective quotes by Michael Whone
#144. When you are brooding, people say you're too brooding and when you are lively, people say you're too lively. You can never win. Together the two of us made an excellent pairing. I accepted her for being so vivacious, and she accepted me in my depths and together there was a balance. Really, inside of every gloomy man resides a part of him that wants to be vibrant, and I saw the opposite in Sarah. She always wanted to be more deep, deliberate, and introspective. #Quote by Michael Whone
Introspective quotes by Angela Carter
#145. The lucidity, the clarity of light that afternoon was sufficient to itself; perfect transparency must be impenetrable, these vertical bars of brass-coloured distillation of light coming down from sulphur-yellow interstices in a sky hunkered with grey clouds that bulge with more rain. It struck the wood with nicotine-stained fingers, the leaves glittered. A cold day of late October, when the withered blackberries dangled like their own dour spooks on the discoloured brambles. There were crisp husks of beechmast and cast acorn cups underfoot in the russet slime of the dead bracken where the rains of the equinox had so soaked the earth that the cold oozed up through the soles of the shoes, lancinating cold of the approaching winter that grips hold of your belly and squeezed it tight. Now the stark elders have an anorexic look; there is not much in the autumn wood to make you smile but it is not yet, not quite yet, the saddest time of the year. Only, there is a haunting sense of the imminent cessation of being; the year, in turning, turns in on itself. Introspective weather, a sickroom hush. #Quote by Angela Carter
Introspective quotes by Mike Birbiglia
#146. I actually wasn't really the class clown growing up. The class clown was always the mean guy who walked up and was like, 'You're fat. You're gay. I'm outta here!' I was always more kind of awkward and introspective. #Quote by Mike Birbiglia
Introspective quotes by Darryl Steven Markowitz
#147. Where do thoughts come from, Father?"
King Mafferan looked deeply into his twelve-year-old eyes. "While I may not be sure all thoughts are my own, I am sure when I own them. #Quote by Darryl Steven Markowitz
Introspective quotes by Alexandra Johnson
#148. Successful journals break the deadlock of introspective obsession #Quote by Alexandra Johnson
Introspective quotes by Haruki Murakami
#149. The music had an ambitious, virtuoso structure, but at the same time it was beautifully introspective. It honestly and delicately expressed, in a full, tangible way, what it meant to be alive. A crucial aspect of the world that could only be expressed through the medium of music. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Introspective quotes by H. A Ironside
#150. one who gives himself/herself preeminently to the Word, neglecting prayer, will become heady and doctrinal-likely to quarrel about "points", and occupied with theoretical Christianity to the hurt of his soul and irritation of his brethren. On the other hand, one who gives himself/herself much prayer while neglecting the Word is likely to become introspective, mystical, and sometimes fanatical. But he/she who reads the Word of God reverently and humbling seeking to know the will of God, and then gives himself/herself to prayer, confessing and judging what the scriptures have condemned in his ways and words, and thoughts, will have his/her soul drawn out in worship also, and thus grow both in grace and in knowledge, becoming a well rounded follower of Christ. Apart from a knowledge of the Word, prayer will lack exceedingly in intelligence ; for the objective must never precede the subjective, and must not be divorced there from #Quote by H. A Ironside
Introspective quotes by Van Morrison
#151. If you get into introspective blues or something where you're stretching out a bit, large audiences don't respond to this, so you have to give them what they want, basically. #Quote by Van Morrison
Introspective quotes by Joe Sacco
#152. It is great to be introspective, self analysis can be useful, but only if it results in action. #Quote by Joe Sacco
Introspective quotes by Jenny Lawson
#153. How can we be expected to properly judge ourselves? We know all of our worst secrets. We are biased, and overly cynical, and occasionally filled with shame. So you'll just have to trust me when I say that you are worthy, important, and necessary. And smart.

You may ask how I know and I'll tell you how. It's because right now? YOU'RE READING. That's what the sexy people do. Other, less awesome people, might currently be in their front yards chasing down and punching squirrels, but not you. You're quietly curled up with a book designed to make you a better, happier, more introspective person.

You win. You're amazing. #Quote by Jenny Lawson
Introspective quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#154. If I so much as dare to intimately probe the reflection I see in the mirror, I am filled with the tormenting fear that I might be repulsed. God invites us to boldly probe the reflection in the mirror so that we might be released. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Introspective quotes by Cynthia Ozick
#155. If introspection is thought, Marvin was not introspective. He felt the contempt he lived under as raw sensation, as heat
heat in the ears, behind the eyes, in the tangled ganglia sheathed by the skull. And contempt, it seemed, was no different from fear. At Princeton he became afraid. It dawned on him that it was not enough to be bright (all Townsend Harris boys were bright): you had to be right. For the first time he was struck by the import of birthright
you slid out of the womb grasping it in your tiny fist, a certificate that guaranteed you would know how to speak and dress and scorn and brazenly intimidate everyone doomed to enter the world empty-handed. Not that Marvin was altogether empty-handed
he had his scholarship, and he had, most of all, the engine of his will and the grim burden of his hurt. He resisted humiliation by accepting it, sometimes almost appearing to invite it: it taught him what was suitable and what wasn't. #Quote by Cynthia Ozick
Introspective quotes by Alan Chains
#156. He wasn't the best coder or the most introspective human being, and you must know that it takes the best coder and the most human human to produce the best droid in this age. (Douglas Parsley #Quote by Alan Chains
Introspective quotes by Qiu Miaojin
#157. I often ask myself: Do I have the courage to let "tragedy" happen again? Qing Jin once said that life is full of rupture and that it is what it is. But does it really have to be this way? Everyone I've ever loved has treated me poorly. And when I was younger I treated others poorly too. Why? Why do people have to act so mean and stupid toward the ones they love? Can't we be a little more introspective and reach a level of self-awareness to stop hurting the ones we love? It must be possible. Mutual meanness and stupidity cause human tragedy and rupture to keep recurring. #Quote by Qiu Miaojin
Introspective quotes by Jewel
#158. I'm a Gemini and I have a lot of different moods. Sometimes I'm very serious and introspective and pensive, but other times I'm completely goofy and girlie. So, I like my songs to cover all my moods. #Quote by Jewel
Introspective quotes by Ayn Rand
#159. The people had come to witness a sensational case, to see celebrities, to get material for conversation, to be seen, to kill time. They would return to unwanted jobs, unloved families, unchosen friends, to drawing rooms, evening clothes, cocktail glasses and movies, to unadmitted pain, murdered hope, desire left unreached, left hanging silently over a path on which no step was taken, to days of effort not to think, not to say, to forget and give in and give up. But each of them had known some unforgotten moment-a morning when nothing had happened, a piece of music heard suddenly and never heard in the same way again, a stranger's face seen in a bus-a moment when each had known a different sense of living. And each remembered other moments, on a sleepless night, on an afternoon of steady rain, in a church, in an empty street at sunset, when each had wondered why there was so much suffering and ugliness in the world. They had not tried to find the answer and they had gone on living as if no answer was necessary. But each had known a moment when, in lonely, naked honesty, he had felt the need of an answer. #Quote by Ayn Rand
