Life And Interests quotes by Innasafa
#1. The only reason why there's a lot people living in contradiction; they aren't in the right time, right situation, and right place. #Quote by Innasafa
Life And Interests quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#2. Wise Blood has reached the age of ten and is still alive. My critical powers are just sufficient to determine this, and I am gratified to be able to say it. The book was written with zest and, if possible, it should be read that way. It is a comic novel about a Christian malgré lui, and as such, very serious, for all comic novels that are any good must be about matters of life and death. Wise Blood was written by an author congenitally innocent of theory, but one with certain preoccupations. That belief in Christ is to some a matter of life and death has been a stumbling block for some readers who would prefer to think it a matter of no great consequence. For them, Hazel Motes's integrity lies in his trying with such vigor to get rid of the ragged figure who moves from tree to tree in the back of his mind. For the author, Hazel's integrity lies in his not being able to do so. Does one's integrity ever lie in what he is not able to do? I think that usually it does, for free will does not mean one will, but many wills conflicting in one man. Freedom cannot be conceived simply. It is a mystery and one which a novel, even a comic novel, can only be asked to deepen.

(Preface to second edition, 1962) #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Life And Interests quotes by Terry Pratchett
#3. Wisdom comes from experience. Experience is often a result of lack of wisdom. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Life And Interests quotes by Thomas Narofsky
#4. Your decisions are the A.I.R. (Action, Impact, and Result) or the breath of life you take each day to live. Each decision is made from your action, the impact of the action, and the results of that action. #Quote by Thomas Narofsky
Life And Interests quotes by Fred Allen
#5. The world is a grindstone and life is your nose #Quote by Fred Allen
Life And Interests quotes by Amit Ray
#6. With the exponential improvement in technology, the destiny of humanity should move towards more collaboration, more generosity, more freedom, more caring and more fulfilling life for everyone, and not nuclear annihilation. #Quote by Amit Ray
Life And Interests quotes by Philip K. Dick
#7. Their eyes, warm not only with human bond but with the shared enjoyment of the art objects he sold, their mutual tastes and satisfactions, remained fixed on him; they were thanking him for having things like these for them to see, pick up and examine, handle perhaps without even buying. Yes, he thought, they know what sort of store they are in; this is not tourist trash, not redwood plaques reading Muir Woods, Marin County, PSA, or funny signs or girly rings or postcards or views of the Bridge. The girl's eyes especially, large, dark. How easily, Childan thought, I could fall in love with a girl like this. How tragic my life, then; as if it weren't bad enough already. The stylish black hair, lacquered nails, pierced ears for the long dangling brass handmade earrings. "Your #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Life And Interests quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#8. If you're a coward--and let's just say that you are, for the sake of argument--it means nothing. My Aunt Peg, she's an alcoholic. She can't handle drinking. It ruins her life and turns her into a mess--and do you know what that means? It means nothing. Do you think it makes her a bad person? Of course not--it's just the way she is. Alcoholism just happened to her, Frank. Things happen to people. We are the way we are--there's nothing to be done for it. My Uncle Billy--he couldn't keep a promise or stay faithful to a woman. It meant nothing. He was a wonderful person, Frank, and he was completely untrustworthy. It's just how he was. It didn't mean anything. We all still loved him. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Life And Interests quotes by Jean Baudrillard
#9. There is no real reason why Disney should not buy up the human genome, which is currently being sequenced, to turn it into a genetic attraction. Why not cryogenize the whole planet, exactly as Walt Disney had himself cryogenized in liquid nitrogen, with a view to some kind of resurrection or other in the real world? But there no longer is a real world, and there won't be one – not even for Walt Disney: if he wakes up one day he'll get the shock of his life. In the meantime, from the depths of his liquid nitrogen he goes on annexing the world – both imaginary and real – subsuming it into the spectral universe of virtual reality in which we have all become extras. The difference is that, as we slip on our data suits or our sensors, or tap away at our keyboards, we are moving into living spectrality, whereas he, the brilliant precursor, has moved into the virtual reality of death. #Quote by Jean Baudrillard
Life And Interests quotes by Dan Pearce
#10. Dads. It's time to show our sons how to properly treat a woman. It's time to show our daughters how a girl should expect be treated. It's time to show forgiveness and compassion. It's time to show our children empathy. It's time to break social norms and teach a healthier way of life! It's time to teach good gender roles and to ditch the unnecessary ones. Does it really matter if your son likes the color pink? Is it going to hurt anybody? Do you not see the damage it inflicts to tell a boy that there is something wrong with him because he likes a certain color? Do we not see the damage we do in labeling our girls "tom boys" or our boys "feminine" just because they have their own likes and opinions on things? Things that really don't matter? #Quote by Dan Pearce
Life And Interests quotes by David Levithan
#11. They are so caught up in their happiness that they don't realize I'm not really a part of it. I am wandering along the periphery. I am like the people in the Winslow Homer paintings, sharing the same room with them but not really there. I am like the fish in the aquarium, thinking in a different language, adapting to a life that's not my natural habitat. I am the people in the other cars, each with his or her own story, but passing too quickly to be noticed or understood.
... There are moments I just sit in my frame, float in my tank, ride in my car and say nothing, think nothing that connects me to anything at all. #Quote by David Levithan
Life And Interests quotes by Antoine Laurain
#12. I haven't kept a diary since I was seventeen. I think it was soon after my baccalaureat that I gave it up for reasons I'm not sure of, because from the age of twelve or thirteen I had written one religiously... They were a record of what I had done when, down to the nearest minute. I think I held on to them as 'evidence' of some kind. They helped me to find my place in the world and, in a broader sense, to prove to myself that I really existed. I suppose I must have decided at some point that I no longer needed to do that, because I gave up writing a diary, stopped telling the story of my life and tried to just live it instead. #Quote by Antoine Laurain
Life And Interests quotes by Francis George
#13. If God is inside our nature and our history, he can take over our lives. What is an opportunity for believers - finding freedom in surrendering our lives and our selves to God - is overwhelming and demeaning for others. And it is true that to invite Jesus into one's life is to be changed. Christ breaks down our defenses, including the habits of ordinary life. #Quote by Francis George
Life And Interests quotes by Cheryl Strayed
#14. We need books, and Cheryl's books in particular, because we are all, in the private kingdom of our hearts, desperate for the company of a wise, true friend. Someone who isn't embarrassed by our emotions, or her own, who recognizes that life is short and that all we have to offer, in the end, is love. Radical #Quote by Cheryl Strayed
Life And Interests quotes by Alan Moore
#15. The world would end as it began, as beatific arbour, and if any family crests or luminary busts or graven names of institutions were yet visible between the droning hives and honeysuckle, they would be by then wiped clean of any meaning. Meaning was a candlelight in everything that lurched and shifted in the circumstantial breezes of each instant, never twice the same. Significance was a phenomenon of Now that could not be contained inside an urn or monolith. It was a hurricane entirely of the present, an unending swirl of boiling change, and as he stood there gazing out towards the city's rim, across the granite fields of time towards the calendar's far tattered edges, Snowy Vernall was a storm-rod, crackling and exultant, at the cyclone's dangerous and brilliant eye. #Quote by Alan Moore
Life And Interests quotes by James Comey
#16. Hate crimes are different from other crimes. They strike at the heart of one's identity - they strike at our sense of self, our sense of belonging. The end result is loss - loss of trust, loss of dignity, and in the worst case, loss of life. #Quote by James Comey
Life And Interests quotes by Lauren Grodstein
#17. It's very easy to think you know someone... when life is calm and orderly. But people become their truest selves in emergencies. #Quote by Lauren Grodstein
Life And Interests quotes by Debasish Mridha
#18. I am a gardener of life, the heart is my garden, love is my flower, and joy is the fragrance. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Life And Interests quotes by Roger Housden
#19. His priorities for a rich and contented life were friendship, freedom, the pleasures of an examined life, and enough food and shelter to keep body and soul together. #Quote by Roger Housden
Life And Interests quotes by T.J. Klune
#20. Heyyy," I said with a wave. "What. Is. Up."
"Hey, he says," Gary snapped, flipping his mane prettily. "Can you believe this? You raise a child most of his life, watch him go through painful years of puberty to become a reasonably attractive man, only to find him negotiating kink contracts with a leather Dom and saying hey." He sniffled. "I've never been more proud of anything in my life."
Tiggy frowned. "Sam a pain slut?"
"I highly doubt that, kitten. You know how he gets when he stubs a toe. He doesn't pop a boner, that's for sure."
"Do I even want to know what you're doing?" the knight asked, cocking a devastatingly unfair eyebrow. #Quote by T.J. Klune
Life And Interests quotes by Jacob Burckhardt
#21. Only the fairy tale equates changelessness with happiness ... Permanence means paralysis and death. Only, in movement, with all its pain, is life. #Quote by Jacob Burckhardt
Life And Interests quotes by Michael Shermer
#22. Myths are about the human struggle to deal with the great passages of time and life
birth, death, marriage, the transitions from childhood to adulthood to old age. They meet a need in the psychological or spiritual nature of humans that has absolutely nothing to do with science. To try to turn a myth into a science, or a science into a myth, is an insult to myths, an insult to religion, and an insult to science. In attempting to do this, creationists have missed the significance, meaning, and sublime nature of myths. They took a beautiful story of creation and re-creation and ruined it. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Life And Interests quotes by Anais Nin
#23. Since that talk with Henry, when I admitted more than I had ever admitted to myself, my life has altered and become deformed. The restlessness which was vague and nameless has become intolerably clear. Here is where it stabs me, at the center of the most perfect, the most steadfast structure, marriage. When this shakes, then my whole life crumbles. My love for Hugo has become fraternal. I look almost with horror at this change, which is not sudden, but slow in appearing on the surface. I had closed my eyes to all the signs. Above all, I dreaded admitting that I didn't want Hugo's passion. I had counted on the ease with which I would distribute my body. But it is not true. It was never true. When I rushed towards Henry, it was all Henry. I am frightened because I have realized the full extent of my imprisonment. Hugo has sequestered me, fostered my love of solitude. I regret now all those years when he gave me nothing but his love and I turned into myself for the rest. Starved, dangerous years.
I should break up my whole life, and I cannot do it. My life is not as important as Hugo's, and Henry doesn't need me because he has June. But whatever in me has grown outside and beyond Hugo will go on. #Quote by Anais Nin
Life And Interests quotes by Jane Smiley
#24. Some folk learned the nature of God, that He was merciful, having spared a husband or some cattle, that He was strict, having meted out hard punishment for small sins, that He was attentive, having sent signs of the hunger beforehand, that He was just, having sent the hunger in the first place, or having sent the whales and the teeming reindeer in the end. Some folk learned that He was to be found in the world-in the richness of the grass and the pearly beauty of the Heavens, and others learned that He could not be found in the world, for the world is always wanting, and God is completion. #Quote by Jane Smiley
Life And Interests quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#25. A work of art is good if it has grown out of necessity. In this manner of its origin lies its true estimate: there is no other. Therefore, my dear Sir, I could give you no advice but this: to go into yourself and to explore the depths whence your life wells forth; at its source you will find the answer to the question whether you must create. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Life And Interests quotes by Kahlen Aymes
#26. The way she affected me, how much i loved her ... it was like my life-force. Consuming and endless. #Quote by Kahlen Aymes
Life And Interests quotes by Nalini Singh
#27. What she didn't realize was that he'd go with her, making a clean, sharp cut of his own. He'd lived more than two hundred years already, and the best of them, the best of them, had been the four since she'd entered his life. #Quote by Nalini Singh
Life And Interests quotes by Douglas Coupland
#28. There are three things we cry for in life: things that are lost, things that are found, and things that are magnificent. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Life And Interests quotes by H. Rider Haggard
#29. Each religion claims the future for its followers; or, at least, the good thereof. The evil is for those benighted ones who will have none of it; seeing the light the true believers worship, as the fishes see the stars, but dimly. The religions come and the religions pass, and the civilisations come and pass, and naught endures but the world and human nature. Ah! if man would but see that hope is from within and not from without - that he himself must work out his own salvation! He is there, and within him is the breath of life and a knowledge of good and evil as good and evil is to him. Thereon let him build and stand erect, and not cast himself before the image of some unknown God, modelled like his poor self, but with a bigger brain to think the evil thing, and a longer arm to do it. #Quote by H. Rider Haggard
Life And Interests quotes by Terry Goodkind
#30. Your life belongs to you alone. Rise up and live it!" ~Richard Rahl #Quote by Terry Goodkind
Life And Interests quotes by Harold S. Kushner
#31. I think of life as a good book. The further you get into it, the more it begins to make sense. #Quote by Harold S. Kushner
Life And Interests quotes by Matthew Kelly
#32. Work-life balance, work-life effectiveness, personal and professional satisfaction - or whatever you choose to call it - is not an entitlement or benefit. Your company cannot give it to you. You have to create it for yourself. You are personally responsible for living the best life you can. #Quote by Matthew Kelly
Life And Interests quotes by AVIS Viswanathan
#33. When someone chooses not to understand you, despite your best efforts, you may want to examine whether they are not getting what you are saying or if they simply don't want to understand you. If it is the latter, Life is so much simpler for both of you – there is no need to invest any more time and energy in striving for that understanding. The brutal truth that you often fail to confront is the fact that someone who is keen not to understand you, perhaps never will, no matter how hard you try! #Quote by AVIS Viswanathan
Life And Interests quotes by Paulo Coelho
#34. Leave your comfortable life and go in search of your kingdom. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Life And Interests quotes by Henry Fairfield Osborn
#35. The evolution of higher and of lower forms of life is as well and as soundly established as the eternal hills. It has long since ceased to be a theory; it is a law of Nature as universal in living things as is the law of gravitation in material things and in the motions of the heavenly spheres. #Quote by Henry Fairfield Osborn
Life And Interests quotes by Bart D. Ehrman
#36. whoever finds me finds life, And obtains favor from the Lord; But those who miss me injure themselves; All who hate me love death. #Quote by Bart D. Ehrman
Life And Interests quotes by Avijeet Das
#37. Be like the earth, and let the flowers bloom. #Quote by Avijeet Das
