Leindecker Concrete quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#1. The difference lies in the fact that in Istanbul the remains of a glorious past civilization are everywhere visible. No matter how ill-kept, no matter how neglected or hemmed in they are by concrete monstrosities, the great mosques and other monuments of the city, as well as the lesser detritus of empire in every side street and corner - the little arches, fountains, and neighborhood mosques - inflict heartache on all who live among them. These #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Ellen Hopkins
#2. Perfect? How can you define a word without concrete meaning? #Quote by Ellen Hopkins
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Joe Carnahan
#3. I love the ambiguous kind of endings. I think, oftentimes, that's what life really is - there's no concrete path for you to take. It's always kind of a jumble of variables. Behind this door could be a beautiful woman, and behind the same door could be a tiger, you know? You don't know. #Quote by Joe Carnahan
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Charlotte Kasl
#4. Ego is not an enemy to be broken or demolished, as is often portrayed in spiritual literature. We don't want to get rid of the ego, we want to soften it, make it porous and receptive, so information, thoughts, and compassion flow in and out. A healthy ego allows us to have the strength of our convictions yet be open to others. Psychological literature often refers to ego strength - a sureness about ourselves that rests calmly inside, the will to actualize our dreams, or stand fast to our beliefs without worrying about the consequences.

By contrast, the rigid or inflated ego is concrete and dualistic - right-wrong, good-bad, friend-foe...It believes the stories we've made up are reality and doesn't realize that they are only the cover over our essence...To deflect fear, the inflated ego dons a mask and becomes artificial in relationships...This leaves us a stranger to ourself and the person we are meeting. In fact, there has been no authentic connection; it's only our personas that have met. #Quote by Charlotte Kasl
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Steven D. Levitt
#5. The economic approach is both broader and simpler than that. It relies on data, rather than hunch or ideology, to understand how the world works, to learn how incentives succeed (or fail), how resources get allocated, and what sort of obstacles prevent people from getting those resources, whether they are concrete (like food and transportation) or more aspirational (like education and love). #Quote by Steven D. Levitt
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Hope Jahren
#6. I started out studying literature, but soon discovered that science was where I actually belonged. The contrast made it all the clearer: in science classes we did things instead of just sitting around talking about things. We worked with our hands and there were concrete and almost daily payoffs. Our laboratory experiments were predesigned to work perfectly and elegantly every time, and the more of them that you did, the bigger the machines and the more exotic were the chemicals that they let you use. #Quote by Hope Jahren
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Carlo Carra
#7. Constructions of a-rhythmical forms, the clash between concrete and abstract forms ... The acute angle is passionate and dynamic, expressing will and a penetrating force. #Quote by Carlo Carra
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Antonio Gramsci
#8. Economy and ideology. The claim (presented as an essential postulate of historical materialism) that every fluctuation of politics and ideology can be presented and expounded as an immediate expression of the structure, must be contested in theory as primitive infantilism, and combated in practice with the authentic testimony of Marx, the author of concrete political and historical works. #Quote by Antonio Gramsci
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#9. The anthropoligical theorist Paul Shepard writes, 'Humans intuitivesly see analogies between the concrete world out there and their own inner world. If they conceive the former as a chaos of anarchic forces or as dead and frozen, then so will they perceive their own bodies and society; so will they think and act on that assumption and vindicate their own ideas by altering the world to fit them.' The loss of a relationship to the nonconstructed world is a loss of these metaphors. It is also loss of the large territory of the senses, a vast and irreplaceable loss of pleasure and meaning. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Jeremy Naydler
#10. We could argue that the ancient Egyptians were positively constrained by their hieroglyphic system of writing to express abstract qualities in a crudely physical way. Against such an interpretation, it is important to bear in mind that language is not simply the vehicle of expression of a given mentality, it actually is that mentality giving expression to itself. The very structures of language are the articulation of the mentality. We should be wary of thinking that the ancient Egyptian mind was "really" like ours, but was constrained by the hieroglyphic script. Rather, the hieroglyphic script was the medium most appropriate for the articulation of the ancient Egyptian mentality. Far from being crude, it reflected richly symbolic modes of conceiving and relating to both the physical and the psychic spheres of existence. It has already become apparent that these two spheres were not experienced as separated from each other - as we today tend to experience them. It is now necessary to go further, and seriously consider the idea that psychic attributes were indeed experienced as "situated" in various parts of the body. The pictorial character of the hieroglyphic form of writing made possible a quite effortless translation of this experience into the written word. For the hieroglyphic script, because it was pictorial, had not yet created a division between concrete and abstract, between "outer" and "inner." And it had not done so just because the ancient Egyptian mentality had n #Quote by Jeremy Naydler
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Captain Hank Bracker, The History Of Liberia & West Africa, History, West Africa, Liberia
#11. On the evening of Wednesday, June 22, 1955, there was an official re-election ceremony being held on the open porch behind the Executive Mansion. As usual it was hot and steamy in Monrovia and without air-conditioning the country's President and several members of his administration were taking in the cooler, but still damp, night air. Without warning, several shots were fired in the direction of the President. In the dark all that could be seen were the bright flashes from a pistol. Two men, William Hutchins, a guard, and Daniel Derrick, a member of the national legislature, fell wounded, but fortunately President Tubman had escaped harm and was hurried back into the building. In the dark no one was certain, but Paul Dunbar was apparently seen by someone in the garden behind the mansion.
James Bestman, a presidential security agent, subdued and apprehended the alleged shooter in the Executive Pavilion, best known for its concrete painted animals. It was said that Bestman had used his .38 caliber "Smith and Wesson," revolver.
Members of the opposition party were accused of participating in the assassination plot and a dragnet was immediately cast to round up the alleged perpetrators. It didn't take long before the son of former President William Coleman, Samuel David Coleman, was indicted, as was his son John. The following day, warrants for the arrest of Former President Barclay, and others in opposition to Tubman, were also issued for allegedly being accomplices. #Quote by Captain Hank Bracker, The History Of Liberia & West Africa, History, West Africa, Liberia
Leindecker Concrete quotes by David Hieatt
#12. Three factors must be present for meaningful organisational change to take place. These factors are:
D= Dissatisfaction with how things are now. V= Vision of what is possible.
F= First, concrete steps that can be taken
towards the vision.
If the product of these three factors is greater than R = Resistance then change is possible. #Quote by David Hieatt
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Louis MacNeice
#13. Good poets have written in order to describe something or to preach something - with their eye on the object or the end. The essence of the poetry does not lie in the thing described or in the message imparted but in the resulting concrete unity, the poem. #Quote by Louis MacNeice
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Miguel De Unamuno
#14. Talking to a peasant one day, I suggested to him the hypothesis that there might indeed be a God who governs heaven and earth, a Consciousness or Conscience of the Universe, but that even so it would not be sufficient reason to assume that the soul of every man was immortal in the traditional and concrete sense. And he replied, Then what good is God? #Quote by Miguel De Unamuno
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Alfred North Whitehead
#15. To be an abstraction does not mean that an entity is nothing. It merely means that its existence is only a factor of a more concrete element of nature. #Quote by Alfred North Whitehead
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Catherine O'Flynn
#16. Anyone who asked for chocolate limes was a killer, according to Adrian, due to his abhorrence of the sweet and his belief that no law-abiding person could like such an unnatural combination. "They've stepped outside the norms of society, Kate. Their moral compass has gone crazy. Anything goes." In addition, Adrian referred similarly to anyone who bought plain chocolate as "One with dark appetites."
Kate tried to base her suspicions on more concrete evidence, but even she couldn't help feeling dubious of anyone who bought prawn cocktail crisps. They both agreed, though, that Kit Kat buyers were forces for good in society. #Quote by Catherine O'Flynn
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Seneca The Younger
#17. We ought not to confine ourselves either to writing or to reading; the one, continuous writing, will cast a gloom over our strength, and exhaust it; the other will make our strength flabby and watery. It is better to have recourse to them alternately, and to blend one with the other, so that the fruits of one's reading may be reduced to concrete form by the pen. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Leindecker Concrete quotes by James H. Austin
#18. Zen values the simple, concrete, living facts of everyday direct personal experience. #Quote by James H. Austin
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Romeo Dallaire
#19. Many signs point to the fact that the youth of the Third World will no longer tolerate living in circumstances that give them no hope for the future. From the young boys I met in the demobilization camps in Sierra Leone to the suicide bombers of Palestine and Chechnya, to the young terrorists who fly planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, we can no longer afford to ignore them. We have to take concrete steps to remove the causes of their rage, or we have to be prepared to suffer the consequences. #Quote by Romeo Dallaire
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Lori Deschene
#20. We don't need to identify concrete solutions to all our problems. We don't need to create the illusion of control amid uncertain circumstances. We need to accept that our biggest problem is fighting the way things are, and then consciously choose to stop battling ourselves. We have to choose to be in this moment instead of scheming toward something better. This moment is a new opportunity to let go of everything that's stressing us. This moment is a new chance to take a deep breath so that we don't feel so overwhelmed. This moment is a tiny lifetime, all in itself, and we have the choice to live it. #Quote by Lori Deschene
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Etgar Keret
#21. And she loved a man who was made out of nothing. A few hours without him and right away she'd be missing him with her whole body, sitting in her office surrounded by polyethylene and concrete and thinking of him. And every time she'd boil water for coffee in her ground-floor office, she'd let the steam cover her face, imagining it was him stroking her cheeks, her eyelids and she'd wait for the day to be over, so she could go to her apartment building, climb the flight of stairs, turn the key in the door, and find him waiting for her, naked and still between the sheets of her empty bed. #Quote by Etgar Keret
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Stacy London
#22. Style offers concrete rules you can follow. You can use it as a resource rather than a barrier to feeling good about yourself. #Quote by Stacy London
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Alan W. Watts
#23. [A] life full of goals and end-points is like trying to abate one's hunger by eating merely the two precise ends of a banana. The concrete reality of the banana is, on the contrary, all that lies between the two ends, the journey as it were[.] Furthermore, when the time and space between destinations are cut out, all destinations tend to become ever more similar. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Derrick Jensen
#24. When dams were erected on the Columbia, salmon battered themselves against the concrete, trying to return home. I expect no less from us. We too must hurl ourselves against and through the literal and metaphorical concrete that contains and constrains us, that keeps us from talking about what is most important to us, that keeps us from living the way our bones know we can, that bars us from our home. It only takes one person to bring down a dam. #Quote by Derrick Jensen
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Albert Camus
#25. Can one be a saint if God does not exist? That is the only concrete problem I know of today. #Quote by Albert Camus
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Nancy Mitford
#26. Spring came late, but when it came it was hand-in-hand with summer, and almost at once everything was baking and warm, and in the villages the people danced every night on concrete dancing floors under the plane trees ... #Quote by Nancy Mitford
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Julie Klausner
#27. If anybody studying psychology wants a concrete example of what a narcissist looks like, I advise them to consider any man who cheats on his wife. These guys are the textbook me-firsters, the ones who think the rules don't apply to them, the ones who tell themselves as long as she doesn't know, there's no harm done. No woman needs to sleep with these guys. There are so many single self-absorbed narcissists who will fuck you poorly. #Quote by Julie Klausner
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Ian Hamilton Finlay
#28. But at the beginning it was clear to me that concrete poetry was peculiarly suited for using in public settings. This was my idea, but of course I never really much got the chance to do it. #Quote by Ian Hamilton Finlay
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Joseph C Zinker
#29. It is in [the] process of making something ... that the creator contacts a concrete reality outside his subjective life and moves into the realm of the transcendent. #Quote by Joseph C Zinker
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Carrie Ryan
#30. I think she was afraid to love sometimes. I think it scared her. She was the type to like things that were concrete, like the ocean. Something you could point to and know what it was. I think that's why she always struggled with God. And I think that's why she also struggled with love. She couldn't touch it. She couldn't hold on to it and make sure it never changed. #Quote by Carrie Ryan
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Pope Francis
#31. There is so much indifference in the face of suffering. May we overcome indifference with concrete acts of charity. #Quote by Pope Francis
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Carl G. Fisher
#32. The Highways of America are built chiefly of politics, whereas the proper material is crushed rock or concrete. #Quote by Carl G. Fisher
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Franklin Foer
#33. Globalization really is a concrete, fundamental fact in everybody's lives, and you really see that come to life in soccer stadiums. #Quote by Franklin Foer
Leindecker Concrete quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#34. The women of today are in a fair way to dethrone the myth of femininity; they are beginning to affirm their independence in concrete ways; but they do not easily succeed in living completely the life of a human being. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
