Keep Busy quotes by Suzanne Fisher Staples

Keep Busy quotes by May Sarton
#6. Does anything in nature despair except man? An animal with a foot caught in a trap does not seem to despair. It is too busy trying to survive. It is all closed in, to a kind of still, intense waiting. Is this a key? Keep busy with survival. Imitate the trees. Learn to lose in order to recover, and remember that nothing stays the same for long, not even pain, psychic pain. Sit it out. Let it all pass. Let it go. #Quote by May Sarton

Keep Busy quotes by David Michie
#18. Even though cats spend most of the day dozing comfortably, we like our humans to keep busy. Not in a noisy or intrusive way - just active enough to entertain us during those periods when we choose to remain awake. Why else do you think most cats have a favorite theater seat - a preferred spot on a windowsill, porch, gatepost, or cupboard top? Don't you realize, dear reader, that you are our entertainment? #Quote by David Michie

#22. Waiting is about being still. You can't keep busy every minute, otherwise you're not waiting. You're just throwing things around to distract yourself ... You don't get to a place by constantly moving, even if your journey is only one of sitting still and waiting. Every once in a while you have to stop in your tracks ... You have to see what you did not see before. #Quote by Rachel Joyce
Keep Busy quotes by John W. James
#23. you were sent into life with several pieces of misinformation about dealing with loss. The six we have identified so far are: Don't feel bad. Replace the loss. Grieve alone. Just give it time.

#26. George Bernard Shaw was right. He summed it all up when he said: "The secret of being miserable is to have the leisure to bother about whether you are happy or not." So don't bother to think about it! Spit on your hands and get busy. Your blood will start circulating; your mind will start ticking-and pretty soon this whole positive upsurge of life in your body will drive worry from your mind. Get busy. Keep busy. It's the cheapest kind of medicine there is on this earth-and one of the best. #Quote by Dale Carnegie
Keep Busy quotes by Colleen Houck
#27. The grief changes over time. You keep busy. Sometimes your mind even forgets the pain for a little while. But when someone you love dies, there will always be a hurt inside you, like a splinter, and when you give yourself over to thinking on it, the ache comes back. #Quote by Colleen Houck
Keep Busy quotes by Osama Bin Laden
#28. So we are continuing this policy in bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy. Rather, the policy of the White House that demands the opening of war fronts to keep busy their various corporations - whether they be working in the field of arms or oil or reconstruction - has helped al-Qaida to achieve these enormous results. #Quote by Osama Bin Laden

Keep Busy quotes by Mike Yaconelli
#31. Spiritual growth is not running faster, as in more meetings, more Bible studies, and more prayer meetings. Spiritual growth happens when we slow our activity down. If we want to meet Jesus, we can't do it on the run. If we want to stay on the road of faith, we have to hit the brakes, pull over to a rest area, and stop. Christianity is not about inviting Jesus to speed through life with us; it's about noticing Jesus sitting at the rest stop. While the church earnestly warns Christians to watch for the devil, the devil is sitting in the congregation encouraging everyone to keep busy doing "good things. #Quote by Mike Yaconelli
Keep Busy quotes by Karen Hawkins
#32. Had I known you were waiting, Miss MacFarlane, I would not have lingered,I assure you."
Flattery was something she knew how to deal with, and it was much better than this odd heat that simmered between them. "What a pretty compliment, Lord MacLean. I don't know what to say."
He bowed. "I merely speak the truth. I daresay you've heard such before."
"And I'm certain you've spoken such before."
Amusement twitched his lips, though he said gravely, "I am sorry if you were left waiting on my arrival. I hope you were not bored."
"Oh,I managed to keep busy."
"I'm certain you did," he replied, almost under his breath. #Quote by Karen Hawkins
Keep Busy quotes by Lauren Mackler

Keep Busy quotes by Dmitry Dyatlov
#37. These days about the worst job you can have is be a US military man. It's so shameful. You're so expensive, yet so completely useless. You know you can't fuck with Russia because they'll just start blowing nukes up for shits and giggles. And you can fuck with China because they probably have a shitton of biological weapons stashed in every Chinatown to take out most US population very, very quickly. At least that's what I would do, and THEY are a lot smarter than I am. So you keep busy and pretend to be useful by killing Arabs in caves and shit, cuz that seems like a pretty low risk adventure. but... even that's gonna come back and bite you in the Ass eventually... these things usually do... #Quote by Dmitry Dyatlov
Keep Busy quotes by Larry Hagman
#38. Well, I motorcycle, I hunt, fish, I do all that. I keep busy. I'm never bored. I've never been bored. #Quote by Larry Hagman
Keep Busy quotes by Diana Wynne Jones

"Oh, you flatter me, Brian," Chrestomanci said. #Quote by Diana Wynne Jones
Keep Busy quotes by Italo Calvino
#40. We phone each other because it's only in these long-distance calls, this groping for each other along cables of buried copper, cluttered relays, the whirling contact points of clogged selector switches, only in this probing the silence and waiting for an echo that one prolongs that first call from afar, that cry that went up when the first great crack of the continental drift yawned beneath the feet of a human couple, when the depths of the ocean opened up to separate them, while, torn precipitously apart, one on one bank and one on the other, the couple strove with their cries to stretch out a bridge of sound that might keep them together yet, cries that grew ever fainter until the roar of the waves overwhelmed all hope. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Keep Busy quotes by Zooey Deschanel
#41. I'm a person who has a lot of energy. So, yes, I don't really stop to rest or de-stress. I just keep going. I figure that if you don't stop, then you'll never notice how tired you are. #Quote by Zooey Deschanel
Keep Busy quotes by David Anthony Durham

Keep Busy quotes by Gary Shteyngart
#47. Then I celebrated my Wall of Books. I counted the volumes on my twenty-foot-long modernist bookshelf to make sure none had been misplaced or used as kindling by my subtenant. "You're my sacred ones," I told the books. "No one but me still cares about you. But I'm going to keep you with me forever. And one day I'll make you important again." I thought about that terrible calumny of the new generation: that books smell. #Quote by Gary Shteyngart
Keep Busy quotes by Busy Philipps
#48. I have great ideas, but the follow through is always really difficult for me. As my kid gets a little bit older, if I feel like I have a little bit more time on my hands, I'd like to get more into developing ideas and writing things. #Quote by Busy Philipps
Keep Busy quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#49. Hatred for mediocrity is unworthy of a philosopher: it is almost a question mark against his right to philosophy. Precisely because he is an exception he has to take the rule under his protection, he has to keep the mediocre in good heart. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Keep Busy quotes by Kyra Sedgwick
#50. Hollywood movies are run on fear and they don't want to make bold choices. They, generally, speaking want to keep things status quo. That's not really interesting for me. #Quote by Kyra Sedgwick

Keep Busy quotes by Rachel Hawkins

Keep Busy quotes by Gilberto Hernandez Guerrero

Keep Busy quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#56. What can I expect from myself? My sensation in all their horrible acuity, and a profound awareness of feeling. A sharp mind that only destroys me, and an unusual capacity for dreaming to keep me entertained. A dead will and a reflection that cradles it, like a living child.
From, The Book of Disquiet
#Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Keep Busy quotes by Chris Moneymaker
#57. When I had a full-time job, I really wasn't that busy, but now I'm really busy. I guess that's a good thing. #Quote by Chris Moneymaker
Keep Busy quotes by SARK
#58. Being tame is what we're taught: ... put the crayons back, stay in line, don't talk too loud, keep your knees together, nice girls don't ...
As you might know, nice girls DO, and they like to feel wild and alive. Being tame feels safe, being wild, unsafe. Yet safety is an illusion anyway. We are not in control. No matter how dry and tame and nice we live, we will die. And we will suffer along the way. Living wild is its own reward. #Quote by SARK
Keep Busy quotes by T.C. Boyle
#59. I'm always trying to do something different and trying to keep myself amused. #Quote by T.C. Boyle

Keep Busy quotes by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
#61. You pray and make your requests made known unto God, and God will do something.' It is not your prayer that is going to do it, it is not you who is going to do it, but God. 'The peace of God that passeth all understanding' - He, through it all, 'will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus'." (Spiritual Depression: Its Causes and Cure, 270) #Quote by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Keep Busy quotes by Jimmy Durante

Keep Busy quotes by Quoleena Sbrocca

Keep Busy quotes by J.D. Robb
#64. I love you, Eve." She looked away from the sun, the ocean, and into his eyes. And it was wonderful, and for the moment, it was simple.
"I missed you." She pressed her cheek to his and held him tightly. "I really missed you. I wore one of your shirts." She could laugh at herself now because he was here. She could smell him, touch him. "I actually went into your closet and stole one of your shirts - one of the black silk ones you have dozens of. I put it on, then snuck out of the house like a thief so Summerset wouldn't catch me."
Absurdly touched, he nuzzled her neck. "At night, I'd play your transmissions over, just so I could look at you, hear your voice."
"Really?" She giggled, a rare sound from her. "God, Roarke, we've gotten so sappy."
"We'll keep it our little secret."
"Deal." She leaned back to look at his face. #Quote by J.D. Robb
Keep Busy quotes by Lee Hall
#65. I only tend to think of the week ahead, to keep my eye on the ball and question whether a full stop is in the right place. It's easy to get distracted by the wrong things. If you start thinking of grand gestures, it's going to be a lot of hot air. You have to be logical. The theatre is a very logical place. #Quote by Lee Hall
Keep Busy quotes by Charles Benoit
#66. There's always a but.
It's a magical word. You can say anything you want, go on for as long as you want, and then all you have to do is add the magic word and instantly everything you said is erased, turned meaningless, just like that.
You're a really nice guy ...
Your mother thinks you need a new computer ...
You've been working harder in class ...
You keep looking at Mr. Nagle as he explains how a few zero homework grades really knock down your average. You nod, and you're thinking that everything he is saying is true.
You are smarter than this.
You could be getting all As.
You could be on the High Honor Roll.
And that if you don't straighten up soon, you won't get into college.
You won't be able to find a decent job.
You won't amount to anything.
And you know it's all true.
But. #Quote by Charles Benoit
Keep Busy quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#67. Public taste changes and the aesthetic of a culture changes over time, so the idea isn't to appeal to the aesthetic of the moment and what people will like right now; the idea is to somehow keep yourself in the public memory so that as taste evolves it will eventually come to embrace your thing. So, it's about writing to be remembered rather than writing to be liked. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Keep Busy quotes by Renny Harlin
#68. I did some film reviews for small papers in Finland and things like that to be able to keep living here. #Quote by Renny Harlin

Keep Busy quotes by Paolo Giordano
#70. We drove around for half an hour in search of two free parking spaces because you couldn't get into a single one," he said, to banish those thoughts.
"It was just an excuse to keep you with me," Alice replied. "But you never understood anything. #Quote by Paolo Giordano
Keep Busy quotes by Jeffrey M. Schwartz
#71. Let's begin with a quotation from mindfulness expert and teacher Bhante Henepola Gunaratana. It beautifully encapsulates what deceptive brain messages are, what they do to you, and how they keep you from following the path of your true self: We see life through a screen of thoughts and concepts, and we mistake those [thoughts] for reality. We get so caught up in this endless thought-stream that reality flows by unnoticed. We spend our time engrossed in activity, caught up in an eternal pursuit of pleasure and gratification and eternal flight from pain and unpleasantness. We spend all our energies trying to make ourselves feel better, trying to bury our fears, endlessly seeking security.16 To phrase it another way: We spend a considerable amount of our time engrossed in following deceptive brain messages until we begin to see them for what they are and value our true emotions and needs. #Quote by Jeffrey M. Schwartz
Keep Busy quotes by James Shapiro
#72. By wrenching this increasingly outdated revenge play into the present, Shakespeare forced his contemporaries to experience what he felt and what his play registers so profoundly: the world had changed. Old certainties were gone, even if new ones had not yet taken hold. The most convincing way of showing this was to ask playgoers to keep both plays in mind at once, to experience a new Hamlet while memories of the old one, ghostlike, still lingered. Audiences at the Globe soon found themselves, like Hamlet, straddling worlds and struggling to reconcile past and present. #Quote by James Shapiro
Keep Busy quotes by Christina Lauren
#73. I've had friends like that," he says, "the ones you outgrow but keep anyway. #Quote by Christina Lauren
Keep Busy quotes by Elizabeth L. Silver
#74. But you see, the problem is that apologies are really just little weeds that grow over monuments and headstones. They keep coming back, but never stop ruining what lies beneath. If an apology is truly authentic, the pain is supposed to stop. Right? #Quote by Elizabeth L. Silver
Keep Busy quotes by Diablo Cody
#75. I just want to be able to keep my house and pay for my son's school tuition in Los Angeles. #Quote by Diablo Cody
Keep Busy quotes by Kate Moretti
#76. Everyone wants to be loved for who they are, even if we keep our true selves locked up and hidden. It's a nice little fantasy to believe that the right person holds the key and all the things you do not say are just somehow, magically, known. #Quote by Kate Moretti
Keep Busy quotes by John Flanagan
#77. Halt waited a minute or two but there was no sound except for the jingling of harness and the creaking of leather from their saddles. Finally, the former Ranger could bear it no longer.
The question seemed to explode out of him, with a greater degree of violence than he had intended. Taken by surprise, Horace's bay shied in fright and danced several paces away.
Horace turned an aggrieved look on his mentor as he calmed the horse and brought it back under control.
What?" he asked Halt, and the smaller man made a gesture of exasperation.
That's what I want to know," he said irritably. "What?"
Horace peered at him. The look was too obviously the sort of look that you give someone who seems to have taken leave of his senses. It did little to improve Halt's rapidly growing temper.
What?" said Horace, now totally puzzled.
Don't keep parroting at me!" Halt fumed. "Stop repeating what I say! I asked you 'what,' so don't ask me 'what' back, understand?"
Horace considered the question for a second or two, then, in his deliberate way, he replied: "No."
Halt took a deep breath, his eyebrows contracted into a deep V, and beneath them his eyes with anger but before he could speak, Horace forestalled him.
What 'what' are you asking me?" he said. Then, thinking how to make the question clearer, he added, "Or to put it another way, why are you asking 'what'?"
Controlling himself with enormous restraint, and making no secret of #Quote by John Flanagan
