Losing quotes by Natasha Trethewey
#1. The first thing I tried to do in the months after losing my mother was to write a poem. I found myself turning to poetry in the way so many people do - to make sense of losses. And I wrote pretty bad poems about it. But it did feel that the poem was the only place that could hold this grief. #Quote by Natasha Trethewey
Losing quotes by Paulo Coelho
#2. But I feel as if I have said everything of importance that I need to say, I feel as if I'm losing my memory and forgetting who I am. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Losing quotes by Project Itoh
#3. The instant the old folks had entered their codes and the Harmony program had begun to sing, suicide disappeared from human society. Nearly all battles ceased. The individual was no longer a unit. The entire social system was the unit. By losing its sense of self and self-awareness, society had been freed from the pain it suffered because its systems had relied on imperfect humans, arriving for the first time at a perfect bliss. I am a part of the system, as you are part of the system. No one felt any pain about that any longer. There was no "me" to feel pain. I had been replaced by a single... #Quote by Project Itoh
Losing quotes by Gurbaksh Chahal
#4. You quit, you lose. You keep going, you may still lose. But, your ambition will never die. #Quote by Gurbaksh Chahal
Losing quotes by Brian D. McLaren
#5. Trying to stop people from learning, sharing, and loving is a losing game because it means working against God and the plotline of God's universe. #Quote by Brian D. McLaren
Losing quotes by Herman Cain
#6. Republicans have been losing the war of words for years now. Now they are just caving because they don't even want to try. I don't agree with that approach. #Quote by Herman Cain
Losing quotes by Suzanne Collins
#7. Peeta opens his mouth for the first bite without hesitation. He swallows, then frowns slightly. "They're very sweet."
"Yes they're sugar berries. My mother makes jam from them. Haven't you've ever had them before?" I say, poking the next spoonful in his mouth.
"No," he says, almost puzzled. "But they taste familiar. Sugar berries?"
"Well, you can't get them in the market much, they only grow wild," I say. Another mouthful goes down. Just one more to go.
"They're sweet as syrup," he says, taking the last spoonful. "Syrup." His eyes widen as he realizes the truth. I clamp my hand over his mouth and nose hard, forcing him to swallow instead of spit. He tries to make himself vomit the stuff up, but it's too late, he's already losing consciousness. Even as he fades away, I can see in his eyes what I've done is unforgiveable.
I sit back on my heels and look at him with a mixture of sadness and satisfaction. A stray berry stains his chin and I wipe it away. "Who can't lie, Peeta?" I say, even though he can't hear me. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Losing quotes by Mitch Albom
#8. Sometimes when you sacrifice something precious, you're not really losing it. You're just passing it on to someone else. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Losing quotes by Brenda Rothert
#9. I thought losing Robert was the hardest thing I'd ever been through. But it wasn't. Moving on from it was. #Quote by Brenda Rothert
Losing quotes by Beth Orton
#10. The husk could be some useless bloke or losing myself and changing my DNA with bottomless grief. #Quote by Beth Orton
Losing quotes by Haruki Murakami
#11. Even if I had my life to live over again, I couldn't imagine not doing things the same. After all, everything - this life I was losing - was me. And I couldn't be any other self but my self. Could I? Once, #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Losing quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#12. Love was a losing game. We never found love in our relationship because our so-called love was never built. We couldn't build love in our relationship because it was all a lie. Our relationship was toxic, and our troubles multiplied. We never got anywhere. The only thing we did was dig a bigger hole than there was before. Without words, we distracted each other's peace."
~Love is respect ♥~ #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Losing quotes by Robert Jackson Bennett
#13. So if you're losing the debate, you change the conversation. #Quote by Robert Jackson Bennett
Losing quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#14. If there is heaven, atheists will be the first to put their foot there; they take time to find God personally. They risk losing everything when they decide He does not exist. While believers will swallow anything you throw at them to protect their own self-interests to get to heaven at all cost, atheists want a real God and I believe God will not disappoint such a genuine breed of human beings. #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Losing quotes by J.R. Ward
#15. I'm losing air over here, you know," Lassiter bitched. "My inflatable is deflating." V cursed. "That's because it doesn't want to be around you any more than we do. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Losing quotes by Barbara Brown Taylor
#16. The tradition piece is so embedded in me I don't know that I can see it any more, but the community piece is one I've been in danger of losing. #Quote by Barbara Brown Taylor
Losing quotes by Gary Clark, Jr.
#17. I was just a very emotional player. I wore my emotions on my sleeve. I pretty much told you how I felt. I didn't mince words, so to speak. If I felt bad, I let you know that I felt bad. If I felt you were playing sorry, I told you. If I was playing sorry, I told myself that. I came from an era when losing really hurt. I didn't see anything good about it. #Quote by Gary Clark, Jr.
Losing quotes by Jeff Goins
#18. Many of us are speeding up and skipping over, missing the important as we scan for the urgent. The irony is that in our anxiety toward not missing out, we are losing the most meaningful moments of life. #Quote by Jeff Goins
Losing quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#19. He who acquired all his wealth by *being at the right place at the right time* is hypocritical by being angry for losing all his wealth because of his *being at the wrong place at the wrong time.* #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Losing quotes by Amy Bloom
#20. Boundaries are the lines we draw that mark off our autonomy and that of other people, that protect our privacy and that of others. Boundaries allow for intimate connection without dissolving or losing one's sense of self. #Quote by Amy Bloom
Losing quotes by John Prine
#21. Steady losing means you ain't using what you really think is right #Quote by John Prine
Losing quotes by K.J. Parker
#22. Most wars start because someone makes a mistake, and most battles are lost by the losing side rather than won by the victors. I'm not sure if that makes things better or worse. I suppose it depends on which you disapprove of more, malice or stupidity. #Quote by K.J. Parker
Losing quotes by Carlos Castaneda
#23. A warrior considers himself already dead, so there is nothing to lose. The worst has already happened to him, therefore he's clear and calm; judging him by his acts or by his words, one would never suspect that he has witnessed everything. #Quote by Carlos Castaneda
Losing quotes by Bruce Lee
#24. Forget about winning and losing; forget about pride and pain. Let your opponent graze your skin and you smash into his flesh; let him smash into your flesh and you fracture his bones; let him fracture your bones and you take his life! Do not be concerned with escaping safely- lay your life before him!! #Quote by Bruce Lee
Losing quotes by Jared Leto
#25. To find yourself, you must first lose yourself #Quote by Jared Leto
Losing quotes by Garry Kasparov
#26. The ability to work hard for days on end without losing focus is a talent. The ability to keep absorbing new information after many hours of study is a talent. #Quote by Garry Kasparov
Losing quotes by Atul Gawande
#27. Even worse than losing self-confidence, though, is reacting defensively. There are surgeons who will see faults everywhere except in themselves. They have no questions and no fears about their abilities. As a result, they learn nothing from their mistakes and know nothing of their limitations. As one surgeon told me, it is a rare but alarming thing to meet a surgeon without fear. "If you're not a little afraid when you operate," he said, "you're bound to do a patient a grave disservice. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Losing quotes by Elizabeth Gaskell
#28. The prospect of soon losing her companion seemed to give force to every sweet quality and charm which Edith possessed. #Quote by Elizabeth Gaskell
Losing quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#29. The greatest cause of human financial struggle is the fear of losing money. #Quote by Robert Kiyosaki
Losing quotes by Bo Burnham
#30. Then the challenge is, once you left brain it and build it, then when you're on stage you have to know it so well that you can get lost in it. I don't want to be onstage looking like a robot, I want to be at the end of the day very emotional and what feels like someone being up there rather than reciting things. That's always the challenge, to analyze and then somehow lose yourself in something you absolutely know backwards and forwards. And nothing's going to surprise you, but you have to be surprised by it and let it surprise you. #Quote by Bo Burnham
Losing quotes by Demi Lovato
#31. Look at what you've done, you're losing me is what you've won. Got me planning to go solo #Quote by Demi Lovato
Losing quotes by Roger Kahn
#32. You may glory in a team triumphant, but you fall in love with a team in defeat. Losing after great striving is the story of man, who was born to sorrow, whose sweetest songs tell of saddest thought, and who, if he is a hero, does nothing in life as becomingly as leaving it. #Quote by Roger Kahn
Losing quotes by Max Gunther
#33. It is true that when we take chances, we stand to lose. But it is also true that we will never win anything if we never even enter the game. Lucky people are aware of the possibility of losing, and indeed they may lose often. But since the chances they take are small, the losses tend to be small. By being willing to accept small losses they put themselves in position to make large gains. #Quote by Max Gunther
Losing quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#34. How can one love self without being selfish? How can one love others without losing self? The answer is: By loving both self and neighbor in God. It is His Love that makes us love both self and neighbor rightly. #Quote by Fulton J. Sheen
Losing quotes by Neal Stephenson
#35. She heaved two or three times, as if sobbing, and suddenly sneezed -- not a polite 'atchoo' but a thermonuclear explosion so powerful that she staggered in place, nearly losing her balance, and some loitering Hispanic men on the other side of the boulevard looked up alertly, ready for action. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Losing quotes by Rick Riordan
#36. Some risks are worth taking, even if it means losing a life. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Losing quotes by Denise Van Outen
#37. I mean, I'm lucky because I've slimmed down, but the last thing I was thinking about was losing weight. #Quote by Denise Van Outen
Losing quotes by Gayle Forman
#38. I wait for the fist of devestation, the collapse of a year's worth of hopes, the roar of sadness. And I do feel it. The pain of losing him. Or the idea of him. But along with that pain is something else, something quiet at first, so I have to strain for it. but when I do, I hear the sound of a door quietly clicking shut. And then the most amazing thing happens: The night is calm, but I feel a rush of wind, as if a thousand other doors have just simultaneously flung open.
I give one last glance towards Willem. Then I turn to Wolfgang. "Finished," I say.
But I suspect the opposite is true. That really, I'm just beginning. #Quote by Gayle Forman
Losing quotes by Joss Whedon
#39. People with real power never fear of losing it. People with control think of little else. #Quote by Joss Whedon
Losing quotes by Mignon' Talise Padilla
#40. As long as you feel comfortable losing, you will never win! #Quote by Mignon' Talise Padilla
Losing quotes by Liam Hemsworth
#41. Honestly, I really, really love making movies. It's so much fun, and I love losing myself in the moment and just being there with other actors. When you're truly in the moment and you're feeding each other, it's such an exciting thing to be a part of. #Quote by Liam Hemsworth
Losing quotes by Julie Delpy
#42. Too many women throw themselves into romance because they're afraid of being single, then start making compromises and losing their identity. I won't do that. #Quote by Julie Delpy
Losing quotes by Dana Mentink
#43. I'm tired of hurting, Lord. I'm tired of being scared. I'm tired of losing. #Quote by Dana Mentink
Losing quotes by Victoria Finlay
#44. The probable reason that nobody at Mikimoto wanted a writer to go to the pearl farms of Ago…was because something terrible was happening in that bay. Since the 1990s, pollution has been pouring into the water, partly as a result of careless husbandry but also from untreated sewage from all the hotels that bring people in to enjoy the 'unspoiled wilderness'. No wonder the Japanese farmers were pulling out their oysters after just nine months: any longer than that and they risked losing most of their stock to the effluent in the water - it was killing the akoya oysters… Similar things are happening in Lake Biwa… Thanks to the pollution in the area, production at Lake Biwa has now declined almost to the point of nonexistence. #Quote by Victoria Finlay
Losing quotes by Mariska Hargitay
#45. Losing my mother at such an early age is the scar of my soul. But I feel like it ultimately made me into the person I am today; I understand the journey of life. I had to go through what I did to be here. #Quote by Mariska Hargitay
Losing quotes by L.P. Donnelli
#46. It's not easy being a soul helper. 'I know, dear, they can be so demanding those dead ones, but I know you can do it, my little one,' he'd say. Mum helps when she can, but she is always floating here and there and it's hard to catch her. We tried her with a mobile phone, but it requires too much mental exertion for a ghost to hold anything for long, so she kept losing it. In the end, we gave up. #Quote by L.P. Donnelli
Losing quotes by Virginia Clinton Kelley
#47. The next best thing to a winning day at the track is a losing day. #Quote by Virginia Clinton Kelley
Losing quotes by Julianna Baggott
#48. The lessons learned in journalism also apply. Writing for NPR has taught me to cut a piece in half and then in half again - without losing the essence. Apply that to the swollen prose of a bulky novel and you might reveal a beautiful work. #Quote by Julianna Baggott
Losing quotes by Alexander Karp
#49. One of the things I find really hard and view as a massive drag ... is that I'm losing my ability to be completely anonymous. #Quote by Alexander Karp
Losing quotes by Najwa Zebian
#50. You turn your back on yourself when you allow every closed door to stop you from moving on to the next one. Sometimes we choose to stand at a closed door and hope that it will somehow open, although that may defy logic and although we may know deep down that no goodness will come from it. We wait. We choose to wait. We choose to have hope, and we're always scared that the door will open the second we walk away. We claim ownership over what we do not have and fear losing it, although it really never was ours. #Quote by Najwa Zebian
Losing quotes by Johnnie Dent Jr.
#51. Whoever is present in your spring would more than likely have respected your winter. #Quote by Johnnie Dent Jr.
Losing quotes by Sherry D Ficklin
#52. Keep flapping your lips and you'll spend the rest of your afterlife haunting hipsters at Starbucks. #Quote by Sherry D Ficklin
Losing quotes by Naomi Klein
#53. The Marshall Plan was the ultimate weapon deployed on this economic front. After the war, the German economy was in crisis, threatening to bring down the rest of Western Europe. Meanwhile, so many Germans were drawn to socialism that the U.S. government opted to split Germany into two parts rather than risk losing it all, either to collapse or to the left. In West Germany, the U.S. government used the Marshall Plan to build a capitalist system that was not meant to create fast and easy new markets for Ford and Sears but, rather, to be so successful on its own terms that Europe's market economy would thrive and socialism would be drained of its appeal. #Quote by Naomi Klein
Losing quotes by Patience Strong
#54. I thought I had finished with romantic adventures, but half-way through life and well past the age for losing one's heart, I was suddenly swept off my feet by a new love, a passionate, tyrannical, all-absorbing emotion: the love of a garden. #Quote by Patience Strong
Losing quotes by Paulo Coelho
#55. Life does not play with marked cards.Winning or losing is part of it. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Losing quotes by George Eliot
#56. In all failures, the beginning is certainly the half of the whole. #Quote by George Eliot
Losing quotes by Karen Kingsbury
#57. I've never loved like this. Never known what love was until I met you. But the fear of losing you doesn't make me run the other way. It makes me run toward you ... and I'll keep running. I'll fight for you until you tell me to stop. Love always involves fear. There are no guarantees about tomorrow for any of us. But in the meantime, while we're waiting for answers ... while we're wondering what's at the end of the road ... I want to walk it with you. #Quote by Karen Kingsbury
Losing quotes by Seymour Martin Lipset
#58. Paradoxical as it may seem, collective bargaining is not losing ground in the United States because unions are less attractive, but unions are less attractive because collective bargaining is losing ground. #Quote by Seymour Martin Lipset
Losing quotes by L. Jon Wertheim
#59. The pain of losing a dollar is far more powerful than the pleasure of winning a dollar. #Quote by L. Jon Wertheim
Losing quotes by Jimmy Kimmel
#60. No matter who it is, I hate to see people losing their jobs. I really do. #Quote by Jimmy Kimmel
Losing quotes by Hamilton Leithauser
#61. When I got to L.A. I woke up and I was losing my voice because of the dry air. It was like, "Oh my god, this is going to be Joe's Pub all over again." #Quote by Hamilton Leithauser
Losing quotes by Brianna Wiest
#62. Love is soul work. Love can be met and joined with attraction and infatuation and all of that, but love will not fade when those things do. You can choose to close your heart to love, and run away, and avoid it for as long as you can in every way you can think of but if it was really, truly, the other-worldly, almost supernatural kind of love that we can only hope to be graced with at least once in this life experience, it will not leave you. You can love many people, but at the end of the day, the love you need to choose is the love that, even if you close your heart to, still moves you. The love you still write about. The love you can't face. The love you're still not okay with losing, that you're angry about; the love that uprooted your life and contorted your being. The love you ran away from because it showed you who you are without the guise of worth given from someone else. This is love because these are all signs that you are closing your heart and to be doing so, there has to be something going through you for you to be able to close off. Real love will be the love you realize that remains even after you close your heart to it, because it sustains itself. It drives you forward. It brings up all the unhealed parts of you that you have to reconcile. #Quote by Brianna Wiest
Losing quotes by Simon Kuper
#63. The things we once thought of as luxuries soon become necessities (although, by the same token, our sense of well-being would quickly adapt to losing half our income). What we care about is not our absolute wealth but our rung on the ladder. Ruut Veenhoven, a leading researcher of happiness, says, "When we have overtaken the Joneses, our reference drifts upward to the Smiths, and we feel unhappy again. #Quote by Simon Kuper
Losing quotes by L.J.Smith
#64. Poppy: Um, can we cross running water?
James: Sure. And we can walk into people's homes without being invited, and roll in garlic if we don't mind losing friends. #Quote by L.J.Smith
Losing quotes by Carol Shields
#65. He had been relfecting, while staring at the fringed blue petals, about love, about the long steady way his imperfect parents managed to love each other, and about his own deficient love for Dorrie, how it came and went, how he kept finding it and losing it again.
And now, here in this garden maze, getting lost, and then found, seemed the whole point, that and the moment of willed abandonment, the unexpected rapture of being blindly led. #Quote by Carol Shields
Losing quotes by Judy Holliday
#66. I'm a born and bred New Yorker. I belong here. Everytime I leave it's like losing a leg. #Quote by Judy Holliday
Losing quotes by Thomas Merton
#67. The illusion that mechanical progress means human improvement ... alienates us from our own being and our own reality. It is precisely because we are convinced that our life, as such, is better if we have a better car, a better TV set, better toothpaste, etc., that we condemn and destroy our own reality and the reality of our natural resources. Technology was made for man, not man for technology. In losing touch with being and thus with God, we have fallen into a senseless idolatry of production and consumption for their own sakes. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Losing quotes by Khang Kijarro Nguyen
#68. When you fall in love,
do not fall out of yourself. #Quote by Khang Kijarro Nguyen
Losing quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#69. Why is it when I'm inside this stone house I've come to love I can't remember what it looks like from the outside. And when I'm outside I can't remember what it looks like on the inside.
Why is it I keep losing my way. The things in the back room taunting me. The views from the windows don't seem to mesh somehow. #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Losing quotes by Tony Curtis
#70. We often don't think of them, we think of the great wars and the great battles, but what about losing a son or a daughter, or a girl losing her husband or vice versa? I think of the people who never got the chance to have the opportunities I had. #Quote by Tony Curtis
Losing quotes by Lance Armstrong
#71. Some things you can't win, though I don't like to admit it. I'm not used to losing much of anything, whether its a race or a debate, but among the things that I nearly lost are my life, my neck, and my good name, and I've gained a realization: a life of unbroken success is not only impossible, it's probably not even good for you ... #Quote by Lance Armstrong
Losing quotes by Bear Bryant
#72. Losing doesn't make me want to quit. It makes me want to fight that much harder. #Quote by Bear Bryant
Losing quotes by J.P. Vaswani
#73. True love is sacrifice. It is in giving, not in getting; in losing, not in gaining; in realizing, not in possessing, that we love! #Quote by J.P. Vaswani
Losing quotes by Richelle Mead
#74. „Hey, you were braver than me. And look, you did it all without losing that towel."
Amusement lit Sydney's features as she let me draw her near. She patted the top of the towel, where it wrapped around her chest. "It's all in how you fold it," she said practically. "Do it the right way, and nothing will get it off."
"Challenge accepted," I murmured, bringing my lips down to hers.
… I lifted her easily in my arms and carried her over to the bed, amazed at how the strongest woman I knew could feel so light in my arms.
I was also amazed at how difficult that towel was to get off.
Sydney laughed softly, trailing her fingers along my cheeks. The sunlight peeping in around the window blinds made her look like she was made of gold. "Uh-oh," she said. "Are you going to fail in your challenge?"
I finally untwisted the fold and removed the towel, tossing it as far from the bed as I could. "No way," I said, as always in awe of her body. "It takes a lot more than that to keep me away. You'll have to try harder next time."
She helped pull my shirt off over my head. "Now why would I want to do that? #Quote by Richelle Mead
Losing quotes by Rick Scott
#75. Allowing casinos to operate without having races could result in the end of dog racing in Florida as we know it. Right now, greyhound racing is in many cases a money-losing proposition, but the dog tracks are forced to continue it because they have to have races in order to operate the lucrative casinos. #Quote by Rick Scott
Losing quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#76. I don't know what's wrong with me tonight. I feel off, unbalanced. Aching for something. I'm losing sight of my purpose, my sense of direction. I always tell myself that I'm fighting every day for hope, for the salvation of humanity, but every time I survive only to return to yet more loss and devastation, something comes loose inside of me. It's like the people and places I love are the nuts and bolts keeping me upright; without them, I'm just scrap metal. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Losing quotes by MaryJanice Davidson
#77. I'll cough up the bitter truth right now, at the risk of losing my Feminism Club Decoder Ring: I didn't go see 'Inside Out' for Amy Poehler, though she's terrific. I went to see my dark prince, Lewis Black. #Quote by MaryJanice Davidson
Losing quotes by Jean Vanier
#78. Deep in our hearts there is a call to live in communion with others, a call to love, to create, to risk. But there is also that radical feeling of our poverty when faced with human misery. I am afraid to give myself. I have constructed a world of security around me...so many so-called interests which keep me from communing with others...I want to, but cannot. So many things seem to prevent me from loving and I feel them in my inmost being...so many defences and fears. I risk losing hope. I risk entering into a world of sadness and I begin to doubt myself. I have doubts about others. I doubt the value of my presence. I doubt everything.

This is our human condition. We want so much but we feel incapable. We believe in love but where is it? There are so many obstacles to break through within ourselves in order to become free and to become present to others; to their misery and to their person.

Our hope is to become freer each day in order to accept others, to be fully present to them. That is our hope. It is only in that way we will be able to give life. Come, Holy Spirit, give us hearts of peace and warmth which can serve as a refuge for those who suffer. Come, help us to be present one to another. #Quote by Jean Vanier
Losing quotes by Philip Roth
#79. Losing the secret, he feels like a boy again. The boy he'd been before he had the secret. A kind of imp again. He gets from all her naturalness the pleasure and ease of being natural himself. If you're going to be a knight and a hero, you're armored, and what he gets now is the pleasure of being unarmored. #Quote by Philip Roth
Losing quotes by Bob Seger
#80. Some people say love is a losing game, you start with fire and you lose the flame. The ashes smolder, but the warmth's soon gone, you end up cold and lonely on your own. #Quote by Bob Seger
Losing quotes by Norman Finkelstein
#81. I think sometimes we underestimate just how vulnerable Israel is on the public-relations front. That's why they spend so much money on propaganda. And that's why they panic every time they feel like they're losing the propaganda war. #Quote by Norman Finkelstein
Losing quotes by Connie Kerbs
#82. Overcoming fear is often much about understanding, accepting and embracing the power of self-healing, self-recovery, and self-discovery. At the same time it is often as much about the beauty of exploring more selflessness, and experiencing some of the true joys of "losing one's self," in others, and into good things that are more about others than one's own self. #Quote by Connie Kerbs
Losing quotes by Charlotte Eriksson
#83. Art is supposed to reflect your journey through real life. Your discovery of your character in solitude and around other people, the moments of clarity when you feel loved and the moment when your heart breaks so much that you can hear it crack. When you run careless and free on open fields and when you're struggling on your way home on the bus. This is what makes you a real artist. Experiences, moments, stories. Falling recklessly in love, losing someone you love and then learning to belong to yourself again. Going to new places, meeting new people, driving in the middle of the night on empty streets. Going to the ocean and staying there until 6 a.m, smoking cigarettes and talking about roses and butterflies. These are the things that will give you something worth writing about, worth singing about, worth creating art around. #Quote by Charlotte Eriksson
Losing quotes by Robert M. Pirsig
#84. Unless you're fond of hollering you don't make great conversations on a running cycle. Instead you spend your time being aware of things and meditating on them. On sights and sounds, on the mood of the weather and things remembered, on the machine and the countryside you're in, thinking about things at great leisure and length without being hurried and without feeling you're losing time. #Quote by Robert M. Pirsig
Losing quotes by Maggie Nelson
#85. 187. Is it a related form of aggrandizement, to inflate a heartbreak into a sort of allegory? Losing what one loves is simpler, more common, than that. More precise. One could leave it, too, as it is.
Yet how can I explain, that every time I put a pin in the balloon of it, the balloon seems to swell back up as soon as I turn away from it? #Quote by Maggie Nelson
Losing quotes by Clement Freud
#86. If you mind losing more than you enjoy winning, don't bet. #Quote by Clement Freud
Losing quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#87. The greatest hazard of all, losing one's self, can occur very quietly in the world, as if it were nothing at all. No other loss can occur so quietly; any other loss - an arm, a leg, five dollars, a wife, etc. - is sure to be noticed. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Losing quotes by Michelle Hodkin
#88. Sometimes I did things I didn't want to do,or said things I didn't want to say. Sometimes I felt like crying for no reason, or snapped at people I cared about for less. I'd been so worried for so long that I was losing my mind, but now it felt like I was losing my body. I felt like a stranger. #Quote by Michelle Hodkin
Losing quotes by Jennie Finch
#89. I mean, I love winning, but losing is a much more intense feeling. #Quote by Jennie Finch
Losing quotes by George Gillespie
#90. All your winning or losing of a good conscience, is in your first buying; for such is the deceitfulness of sin, and the cunning conveyance of that old serpent, that if his head be once entering in, his whole body will easily follow after; and if he make you handsomely to swallow gnats at first, he will make you swallow camels ere all be done. Oh, happy they who dash the little ones of Babylon against the stones (Ps. 137:9)! #Quote by George Gillespie
Losing quotes by Victor Hugo
#91. Having love means not losing the light.And what love!Love entirely pure.Blindness does not exist where there is certainty.The soul gropes for another soul-and finds it.And this soul found and tried and tested is a woman.A hand supports you,it is hers;lips brush your forehead,hers;you hear breathing right next to you,it is her breathing.To have all of her,from her devotion to her sympathy,never to be abandoned,to have that sweet frailty that succours you,to lean on such an unshakable reed,to touch Providence with your own hands and hold it in your arms. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Losing quotes by Kelly Fiore Stultz
#92. Love, real love - it's worth fighting for, you know? It's worth doing everything you can to save it. Even if it means making a fool of yourself. Even if it means losing the person you love in the end. As long as you've really tried -- well, then you know that you've done all you can. #Quote by Kelly Fiore Stultz
Losing quotes by Daniel Akaka
#93. There is a human capital crisis in the federal government. Not only are we losing the decades of talent as civil servants retire, we are not doing enough to develop and nurture the next generation of public servants. #Quote by Daniel Akaka
Losing quotes by Chetan M. Kumbhar
#94. Winning cannot become your habit unless defeats have torn you apart
and you sit in the battle field

Losing quotes by Jeff Lindsay
#95. We all make rules for ourselves. It's these rules that help define who we are. So when we break those rules, we risk losing ourselves and becoming something unknown. Who is Deb now? Who am I? Is this a new beginning? Or the beginning of the end? #Quote by Jeff Lindsay
Losing quotes by Josh Waitzkin
#96. This might sound like a dream for a seventeen-year-old boy, and I won't deny enjoying the attention, but professionally it was a nightmare. My game began to unravel. I caught myself thinking about how I looked thinking instead of losing myself in thought. The Grandmasters, my elders, were ignored and scowled at me. Some of them treated me like a pariah. I had won eight national championships and had more fans, public support and recognition than I could dream of, but none of this was helping my search for excellence, let alone for happiness. At a young age I came to know that there is something profoundly hollow about the nature of fame. I had spent my life devoted to artistic growth and was used to the sweaty-palmed sense of contentment one gets after many hours of intense reflection. This peaceful feeling had nothing to do with external adulation, and I yearned for a return to that innocent, fertile time. I missed just being a student of the game, #Quote by Josh Waitzkin

#97. The Republican leadership thinks the best way to avoid losing elections is to let the Democrats win every controversial issue. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Losing quotes by Ted Cruz
#98. Obamacare is the nation's biggest job killer and stands in the way of our country's economic growth and prosperity. It should be defunded and repealed. President Obama should hear the pleas from the untold number of Americans who are losing their jobs, wages, and healthcare plans, and Congress should act immediately to stop Obamacare from inflicting any more damage on the country on our hard-working citizens. #Quote by Ted Cruz

Losing quotes by Willam Belli
#103. I always perform live. I've even received a cortisone injection when I was losing my voice before a big gig so I could fulfill my obligation to the promoter. I felt it the days following after the gig in my throat, but it was nice to know I didn't let anyone down. The show must go on. #Quote by Willam Belli
Losing quotes by Sally Rooney
#104. A feeling of dissociation from his senses, an inability to think straight or interpret what he sees and hears. Things begin to look and sound different, slower, artificial, unreal. The first time it happened he thought he was losing his mind, that the whole cognitive framework by which he made sense of the world had disintegrated for good, and everything from then on would just be undifferentiated sound and colour. #Quote by Sally Rooney
Losing quotes by Confucius
#105. By gaining the people, the kingdom is gained; by losing the people, the kingdom is lost. #Quote by Confucius
Losing quotes by Alyson Noel
#106. And I know you've spent a lifetime trying to protect me from the staggering pain of grief that comes from losing the things and the people and the places you allowed yourself to care about
but guess what, Jennika
that's no way to live. As much as it hurts to lose something you love, there's much greater joy in getting to experience it for as long as it lasts. #Quote by Alyson Noel
Losing quotes by Rumi
#107. Whatever happens, just keep smiling and lose yourself in Love. #Quote by Rumi
Losing quotes by Susan Sarandon
#108. I remember Anthony Perkins saying, "Real is not necessarily interesting." So real is not enough. But what happens as an actor is that you're really trained to listen and to be open and have empathy. It's such a natural consequence that you end up being more political. You can empathize with the mother whose kids are going to be sent to Iraq, or you can emphasize with the mother who is losing their child to a disease. How could you not then be active? So you're automatically drawn to that aspect in the rest of your life. #Quote by Susan Sarandon
Losing quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#109. What is it?
Nothing. I had a bad dream.
What did you dream about?
Nothing.
Are you okay?
No.
He put his arms around him and held him. It's okay, he said.
I was crying. But you didnt wake up.
I'm sorry. I was just so tired.
I meant in the dream. #Quote by Cormac McCarthy
Losing quotes by Satoru Iwata
#110. Consumers will purchase high quality products even if they are expensive, or in other words, even if there are slightly reasonable discount offers, consumers will not purchase products unless they truly understand and are satisfied with the quality. Also, product appeal must be properly communicated to consumers, but advertisements that are pushed on consumers are gradually losing their effect, and we have to take the approach that encourages consumers to retrieve information at their own will. #Quote by Satoru Iwata
Losing quotes by Stephen Richards
#111. Someone once asked me if I knew the feeling of fear. Oh, I knew fear. Well, really speaking I never feared any fucker at that time; I've got to be honest. But I knew fear, the fear of losing! There was never any fear of combat! My father instilled that fear in to me and that was what drove me on to win ... the fear of what was to come after you went home saying you'd lost! #Quote by Stephen Richards
Losing quotes by Nancy Huston
#112. There's no winning or losing in this game, only playing, endless playing, you want your adversary to be strong not weak, smart not dumb, you're delighted to trick him and delighted to be tricked by him, boy learns from girl, white learns from black, old learns from young, the teaching is the doing is the beauty is the grace is the humor, endlessly you go on learning, smiling, moving, feinting, never missing a beat. Gingare, the dance of life: the controlled, prolonged, sustained, ineffable excitement of capoeira is like an endless climax. #Quote by Nancy Huston
Losing quotes by Julianne MacLean
#113. It's no different from losing a loved one," he said. "You grieve, but then you have no choice but to go on living your life. You find a way to be happy again. It's not impossible. You just have to decide when you're ready to accept that they're gone. #Quote by Julianne MacLean
Losing quotes by Rusty Bradley
#114. If in fact your time to be called before God, you typically won't know it. Sometimes you will, and these are the hardest of times: When the blood pours from your nose and down your throat, clogging it, causing you to spit and gag. You heave for breath in the smoke and dust. Your equipment seems to suffocate you. You wipe the salty sweat and grime from your eyes, only to realize that it is blood, either yours or that of the enemy. You would stand, but you can't move your legs. You grasp the open, gaping wounds in your body, trying not to pass out from the pain. You feel the anger thinking of the loved ones you will never see again, and losing your life infuriates your soul. You rage to get to your feet and grab for a weapon, any weapon. Regardless of your race, culture, or religion, you want to die standing, fighting like a warrior, an American, so others won't have to. For those looking for a definition, this is the price of freedom. #Quote by Rusty Bradley
Losing quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#115. Somehow, she had grown into a woman in between the fall of kings and collapse of worlds. Once she had been terrified of change. Then she had been terrified of losing Elend. Now her fears were more nebulous - worries of what would come after she was gone, worries of what would happen to the people of the empire if she failed. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Losing quotes by Yvan Byeajee
#116. Events, circumstances, and experiences arise and pass away. Winning trades, losing trades, fear, greed, sadness, happiness, and eventually your own life. Everything is in a constant flux. Learn to go through it with stability of mind. A meditation practice helps a lot. #Quote by Yvan Byeajee
Losing quotes by Yann Martel
#117. His heart is expended that way, of loving the single, particular individual. He loved Clara with every fibre of his being, but now he has nothing left. Or rather, he has learned to live with her absence, and he has no wish to fill that absence; that would be like losing her a second time. Instead he would prefer to be kind to everyone, a less personal but broader love. #Quote by Yann Martel
Losing quotes by Lang Leav

Losing quotes by Shane Smith
#120. The problem that we've had is four media companies run media, globally. And some say they're on the Right and some say they're on the Left; look, they're all afraid of losing Ford as a client. So they're all, by definition, huge companies that are going to be inherently conservative. #Quote by Shane Smith
Losing quotes by G.G. Renee Hill

Losing quotes by Elizabeth Reyes
#122. She always said she'd already lost one child to gangs and she was not losing another. We were surrounded by gangs and kids getting in trouble blaming it on the area they lived in, but Memo and I are living proof of what my mom always said to us. You are who you choose to be. You're only a victim of your environment if you allow yourself to be. #Quote by Elizabeth Reyes
Losing quotes by Keary Taylor
#123. It kind of scares me though, to keep wearing it every day like I do. What happens when I run out of it? Will I forget what she looked like? What it looked like when the sun reflected on her hair? The way her pillow always smelled like her? Will my memory of her run out too? #Quote by Keary Taylor
Losing quotes by Anonymous
#124. In real life our behavior is far more complex than the textbook allows and often confounds the idea that we're purely rational. We don't save enough for retirement even though it's to our clear economic advantage to do so. We hang on to bad investments longer than we should, because we feel far sharper pain from losing money than we do from gaining the exact same amount. #Quote by Anonymous
Losing quotes by Victor Hugo
#125. Who can be sure that Jean Valjean had not been on the verge of losing heart and giving up the struggle? In loving he recovered his strength. But the truth is that he was no less vulnerable than Cosette. He protected her and she sustained him. Thanks to him she could go forward into life, and thanks to her he could continue virtous. He was the child's support and she his mainstay. Sublime, unfathomable marvel of the balance of destiny! #Quote by Victor Hugo
Losing quotes by Rollo May
#126. In its extreme form, this fear of losing one's orientation is the fear of psychosis. When persons actually are on the brink of psychosis, they often have an urgent need to seek out some contact with other human beings. #Quote by Rollo May
Losing quotes by Warren Buffett
#127. It is madness to risk losing what you need in pursuing what you simply desire. #Quote by Warren Buffett
Losing quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#128. Most people's lives are run by desire and fear. Desire is the need to add something to yourself in order to be yourself more fully. All fear is the fear of losing something and thereby becoming diminished and being less. These two movements obscure the fact that Being cannot be given or taken away. Being in its fullness is already within you, Now. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle

Losing quotes by Ryan Holiday
#135. You cannot have your news instantly and have it done well. You cannot have your news reduced to 140 characters or less without losing large parts of it. You cannot manipulate the news but not expect it to be manipulated against you. You cannot have your news for free; you can only obscure the costs. If as a culture we can learn this lesson, and if we can learn to love the hard work, we will save ourselves much trouble and collateral damage. We must remember: There is no easy way. #Quote by Ryan Holiday
Losing quotes by Donald Faison
#136. There's always fear. There's always fear. Always fear. Anyone who says they are not afraid is lying to you. Because this can all change tomorrow. I could say something dumb today and be in the news for it tomorrow. And maybe the phone stops ringing. You're always afraid of losing what you have. Regardless of success or anything, you're always afraid. #Quote by Donald Faison
Losing quotes by Sandra Bullock
#137. I feel like when you have an unauthorized police badge and something that looks like it could be a concealed weapon in the small of your back that when you, someone crosses you, pisses you off, road rage, I think just the slight badge and the little moving away of the jacket and not losing eye contact does amazing things. #Quote by Sandra Bullock

Losing quotes by Jay Kristoff
#142. Fear was Can't.
Fear was Won't.
But fear wasn't ever a choice.
To never fear was to never hope. Never love. never live. To never fear the dark was to never smile as the dawn kissed your face. To never fear solitude was to never know the joy of a beauty in your arms.
Part of having is the fear of losing.
Part of creating is the fear of it breaking.
Part of beginning is the fear of your ending.
Fear is never a choice.
Never a choice.
But letting it rule you is. #Quote by Jay Kristoff

Losing quotes by Ofeibea Quist-Arcton
#144. There's no doubt that Boko Haram has been driven from many of its strongholds in northeastern Nigeria. Now, President Muhammadu Buhari says technically, we have won the war. Those in the know say but technically, the army is still losing the battle because Boko Haram has changed tactics. Instead of now holding territory as it used to and calling this territory its own, now it is resorting to guerrilla tactics, hit-and-run raids and especially suicide bombings. #Quote by Ofeibea Quist-Arcton
Losing quotes by Ram Dayal Munda
#145. To separate the Adivasi from his land is to stop his breathing. If you want to see an Adivasi's extinction, take him away from his land- as it is happening at present. It is a strange irony that when the Adivasi could lead a life of self- reliance, he is being compelled to become disabled and parasitic. The Adivasi, after having been uprooted from his land through the establishment of big projects in the name of public interest and national development, is ending up in slums in the peripheries of modern cosmopolitan cities as an army of landless labourers and domestic servants losing altogether their self- reliance and self- esteem. #Quote by Ram Dayal Munda

#148. Hey," Sean said as he stretched. "I just took Scout out."

"Thanks," Cade said.

Sean glanced back and noticed me. "Hey, Fallon." He smirked at Cade. "Well, guess I'll be heading to my room now."

Scout raised his head and his tail slapped against the couch.

"Three's a crowd, and all that." Sean ruffled the fur along Scout's neck. "Unless, of course, you're a dog." He stood and stretched again. "Oh, to be a dog in a crate."

Cade rolled his eyes at Sean's fly-on-a-wall reference. " 'Night, Sean," he grumbled.

"See you two crazy kids later." He strolled out of the room but paused and patted the kitchen wall. "Oh, and FYI, the shower in Cade's room backs to the kitchen."

God, Sean was like a male version of me. Poor Brinley, always having to put up with my crap. She was a damn good sport.

Cade just shook his head and muttered, "Jealous?"

"Fuck yeah, I am," Sean called back as he wandered down the hall. "I'm going to start calling you magic hands."

Though Sean was still fucking around, I sensed Cade losing his patience.

"It's not just his hands," I said.

Sean looked over his shoulder at me.

"I mean, call him what you want, but don't sell him short."

Sean just stared at me, surprised by either what I'd said or the fact I'd said anything at all.

I smiled in the way that always drove guys crazy, totally fake but filled with #Quote by Renita Pizzitola

Losing quotes by Tana French
#150. Regardless of the advertising campaigns may tell us, we can't have it all. Sacrifice is not an option, or an anachronism; it's a fact of life. We all cut off our own limbs to burn on some altar. The crucial thing is to choose an altar that's worth it and a limb you can accept losing. To go consenting to the sacrifice. #Quote by Tana French
Losing quotes by Sophocles
#151. Reason is God's crowning gift to man, and you are right
To warn me against losing mine. I cannot say
I hope that I shall never want to say! - that you
Have reasoned badly. Yet there are other men
Who can reason, too; and their opinions might be helpful.
You are not in a position to know everything
That people say or do, or what they feel:
Your temper terrifies them - everyone
Will tell you only what you like to hear. #Quote by Sophocles

Losing quotes by Andrew Sean Greer
#153. Less knows so well the pleasures of youth - danger, excitement, losing oneself in a dark club with a pill, a shot, a stranger's mouth - and, with Robert and his friends, the pleasures of age - comfort and ease, beauty and taste, old friends and old stories and wine, whiskey, sunset over water. His entire life, he has alternated between the two. There is his own distant youth, that daily humiliation of rinsing out your one good shirt and putting on your onw good smile, along with the daily rush of newness: new pleasures, new people, new reflections of yourself. There is Robert's middle age of selecting his vices as carefully as tiles in a Paris shop, napping in the sunlight on an afternoon and getting up from a chair and hearing the creak of death. The city of youth, the country of age. But in between, where Less is living - that exurban existence? How has he never learned to live it? #Quote by Andrew Sean Greer

#154. Southern food has been riding a long wave of popularity that has elevated cooking in Southern cities. But it has also led to a formulaic culinary canon laden with house-cured pork products, bespoke grits and lots of food served in Mason jars. The cooks who defined the style were mostly men in tourist-heavy towns like Atlanta, Nashville and Charleston, S.C. Chefs who didn't cook like that risked losing business. #Quote by Anonymous
Losing quotes by Stephen Lovely
#155. She always used to suspect that the price for happiness, the price for enjoying the company of a person you loved, was the steadily increasing risk of losing them, and at times, when she considered the possibility that she might lose Isabel or Clancy or, in the early days, Todd, Bernice didn't think she could stand it, didn't think she could go on living in a universe whose laws forced her to submit to such a terrible fear. Now she sees what a small price it is to pay, what staggering joy she received in return. You should be willing to pay that price for as little as a few days or hours with a person you love, she thinks, rubbing her fingers across a patch of linoleum the years have worn down to a cloudy smear. #Quote by Stephen Lovely

'All sorts, Monsieur. Getting on the wrong train. Stopping in an unknown city. Losing your briefcase, being arrested by mistake, spending the night in prison.

Losing quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#167. And then, as the room went black, I was suddenly hyperaware that Edward was sitting less than an inch from me. I was stunned by the unexpected electricity that flowed through me, amazed that it was possible to be more aware of him than I already was. A crazy impulse to reach over and touch him, to stroke his perfect face just once in the darkness, nearly overwhelmed me. I crossed my arms tightly across my chest, my hands balling into fists. I was losing my mind. #Quote by Stephenie Meyer
Losing quotes by Ellen Schreiber
#168. Every time the phone rang, my heart jumped. Was it Alexander? And when it wasn't him my heart would break into a million pieces. It had been two longs days since I had seen my Gothic mate. I was so preoccupied with Alexander, dreaming of the next time we'd be together, nothing else mattered. I didn't wash the spot where his tender love lips had pressed against my flesh. I was acting like I was straight out of a Gidget movie! What had happened to me? I was losing my edge! For the first time in my life I was really afraid. Afraid of never seeing him again and afraid of being rejected. #Quote by Ellen Schreiber

Losing quotes by Matthew De Abaitua
#170. Losing him would, she realised, be unlike anything she had ever experienced before. A marriage is a conspiracy, a shared aspect toward the rest of the society, a code devised over a long history of negotiation and habit. That code would vanish. Her thoughts would be unobserved, her memories would be hers alone, without the heft that comes from sharing them with another. She would become insubstantial to herself. #Quote by Matthew De Abaitua
Losing quotes by Suzanne Collins
#171. I waited at least two hours. I'd begun to think that he'd given up on me in the weeks that had passed. Or that he no longer cared about me. Hated me even. And the idea of losing him for ever, my best friend, the only person I'd ever trusted with my secrets, was so painful I couldn't stand it. Not on top of everything else that had happened. I could feel my eyes tearing up and my throat starting to close the way it does when I get upset.
Then I look up and there he was, three metres away, just watching me. Without even thinking, I jumped up and threw my arms around him, making some weird sound that combined laughing, choking and crying. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Losing quotes by Hannah Arendt
#172. Persecution of powerless or power-losing groups may not be a very pleasant spectacle, but it does not spring from human meanness alone.

Losing quotes by Claude Levi-Strauss
#174. It is only through difference that progress can be made. What threatens us right now is probably what we may call over-communication
that is, the tendency to know exactly in one point of the world what is going on in all other parts of the world. In order for a culture to be really itself and to produce something, the culture and its members must be convinced of their originality and even, to some extent, of their superiority over the others; it is only under conditions of under-communication that it can produce anything. We are now threatened with the prospect of our being only consumers, able to consume anything from any point in the world and from any culture, but of losing all originality. #Quote by Claude Levi-Strauss
Losing quotes by Joyce Dennys
#175. Last week posters appeared up and down the street which said "GIVE A GOOD BOOK IN AID OF THE RED CROSS". I was pleased when I saw them, for I thought it must mean books of a religious nature were needed, and as I haven't got any it absolved me from all responsibility.
To part with even one of the tattered and incongruous volume which form what I am pleased to call my library is, for me, worse than losing a front tooth. Sometimes I wake in the night and writhe to think of the books I have lent to people and never seen again. Once I groaned aloud and woke Charles. "What is the matter Henrietta?" he said, "Have you got a pain?"
"No, Charles, but I keep thinking of that copy of Barchester Towers which I lent somebody and never got back."
"For crying out loud!" said Charles, and went to sleep again. #Quote by Joyce Dennys

And in that moment I possessed and lost the whole world and everything in it and was left with the feeling and the knowledge, which is love, that no matter how we give ourselves we always end up losing.

Losing quotes by Jimmy Carter
#178. The erosion of our confidence in the future is threating to destroy the Social and the Political fabric of America. The confidence that we have always had as a people, is not simply some romantic dream, or a proverb in a dusty book, that we read, just on the Fourth of July. It is the idea of which founded our nation and has guided us in our development as a people. Confidence in the future has supported everything else. We've always believed in a thing called, progress. We've always had a faith, that the days of our children, would be better than our own. Our people are losing that faith. For the first time in the history of our country, a majority of our people believe, that the next five years, will be worse than the past five years. We were taught that our armies were always invincible and our causes were always just, only to suffer the agony of Vietnam. We respected the presidency as a place of honor, until the shock of Watergate. We've got to stop crying and start sweating. Stop talking and start walking. Working together, with our common faith, we cannot fail. #Quote by Jimmy Carter

#180. Losing is like knowing that, in the movie scene where a thousand die but the hero lives, you're one of the obliterated. #Quote by David Guterson
Losing quotes by C.S. Pacat
#181. Fencing is different to sport like Tennis or Volleyball. In those sport, if scores are tied before the final point, it's called "Deuce". Which means "Two" because a player must be two points ahead to win... to compensate for the advantage of serving. But in fencing, there is no Deuce. Because there's no advantage. Both fencers start off equally. Equal footing. Equal opportunity. What separates them is just skill and the psychology of the match. The difference between winning and losing is just one point #Quote by C.S. Pacat
Losing quotes by Nalini Singh
#182. I shut up everything inside. Everything." Words ground out through clenched teeth. "I thought if I could hold it, just hold it, it would be fine. But it's not."
"Why?" she asked. "Why are you losing control so badly?"
The answer, when it came, broke Sascha's heart.
"Hawke." It was an almost soundless whisper.
"Oh, Sienna." She stroked her hand over the girl's hair, even as her mind worked at piercing speed. "Has it been cumulative?"
Sienna nodded. "The second I met him, everything crumbled, my shields, my conditioning, everything! #Quote by Nalini Singh
Losing quotes by Michio Kaku
#183. An even more advanced form of uploading your mind into a computer was envisioned by computer scientist Hans Moravec. When I interviewed him, he claimed that his method of uploading the human mind could even be done without losing consciousness.

First you would be placed on a hospital gurney, next to a robot. Then a surgeon would take individual neurons from your brain and create a duplicate of these neurons (made of transistors) inside the robot. A cable would connect these transistorized neurons to your brain. As time goes by, more and more neurons are removed from your brain and duplicated in the robot. Because your brain is connected to the robot brain, you are fully conscious even as more and more neurons are replaced by transistors. Eventually, without losing consciousness, your entire brain and all its neurons are replaced by transistors. Once all one hundred billion neurons have been duplicated, the connection between you abd the artificial brain is finally cut. When you gaze back at the stretcher, you see your body, lacking its brain, while your consciousness now exists inside a robot. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Losing quotes by Frederick Lenz
#184. When you allow desire, anger and frustration to dominate you, you are losing power. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Losing quotes by Wil S. Hylton
#185. Since losing his reelection in 2002, Barr has lost not only his power but also many of his friends. It doesn't help that after alienating nearly every Democrat with impeachment, he spent the next five years alienating his fellow Republicans - railing against the invasion of Iraq, the PATRIOT Act, and the Bush administration in general. #Quote by Wil S. Hylton
Losing quotes by Jen Hatmaker
#186. Thank you, 4:00 p.m., for being the time of day that thoroughly confuses me: post-homework and pre-dinner. I am already exhausted and fairly irritable. The children are losing their ever-loving minds, and husband is still tucked away in his sane office with all mental faculties intact and won't answer my SOS texts to hurry and come home or their blood is on your hands. Do I make a coffee? Or pour a glass of wine? Yours, Witching-Hour Survivor. #Quote by Jen Hatmaker
Losing quotes by Libba Bray
#187. Sometimes I just want to go in a room and break things and scream. Like, it's so much pressure all the time and if you get upset or angry, people say, 'Are you on the rag of something?' And it's like I want to say, 'No. I'm just pissed off right now. Can't I just be pissed off? How come that's not okay for me?' Like my dad will say, 'I can't talk to you when you're hysterical.' And I'm totally not being hysterical! I'm just mad. And he's the one losing it. But then I feel embarrassed anyway. So I slap on that smile and pretend everything's okay even though it's not. #Quote by Libba Bray
Losing quotes by Claire North
#188. ... sometimes you wake and you remember that you will be an old, old man and that the one you love will die and you can't work out if they die or you first which would be more scary? Who will be strongest without love, alone, loveless, devoid? What is worse - for you to lose the one you love or for the one you love to be destroyed by losing you? #Quote by Claire North
Losing quotes by Sharon Stone
#189. People are afraid of changing; that they're losing something. They don't understand that they are also gaining something. #Quote by Sharon Stone
Losing quotes by Jim O'Connor
#190. Gettysburg is still considered the most famous battle of the war. Why? At Gettysburg, the tide turned. Up until then, the South had been winning. After Gettysburg, the Confederates were no longer sure their army was unbeatable. And after two years of losing battles, the Northern forces gained pride and confidence. They believed the war was theirs to win. And they were right. Gettysburg was a prosperous market town of 2,400 people. A network of ten roads extended out from town like the spokes of a wheel. Until July 1863, Gettysburg was not well known like other cities in Pennsylvania such as Philadelphia or Harrisburg. #Quote by Jim O'Connor
Losing quotes by Bobby Fischer
#191. If you don't win, it's not a great tragedy - the worst that happens is that you lose a game. #Quote by Bobby Fischer
Losing quotes by Lena Headey
#192. I have an internal protectiveness where it's like, if it comes to just me, as frightened as I am of losing someone I love or things going sour or simply being alone, there is a dark place in my brain where I'm like, It could happen and I'm okay, I'm prepared. #Quote by Lena Headey
Losing quotes by Marat Safin
#193. Don't get too excited when I am winning, and don't get too depressed when I am losing. Just keep it cool. #Quote by Marat Safin
Losing quotes by Christopher Titus
#194. You don't give out trophies for losing. Trophies for sucking. That's a communist idea. You don't get a trophy for losing. You get a piece of pizza and you shut up. Trophies for losing? What the hell happened to us? #Quote by Christopher Titus
Losing quotes by Donald Trump
#195. Sometimes by losing a battle you find a new way to win the war. #Quote by Donald Trump
Losing quotes by Yuuri Eda
#196. When you reached the point of losing your reasoning, that's called falling in love. Actually, those who have lost their reasoning chase blindly without thinking about the risks. They run and run like confused wild pigs. That's why, most of the time, they end up getting hurt. -- Sagan #Quote by Yuuri Eda
Losing quotes by Audrey Coulthurst
#197. She led me to her bed and laid me down beside her. I let her hands wander over me, losing myself in the patterns she traced over my skin. When she brought her lips to mine, we kissed until we could hardly breathe, until I couldn't resist sliding my hand up her thigh, hiking the nightdress over her hips.

Denna grew bold with my touch, finding her way beneath my shirt until she slipped the fabric over my head. Her mouth moved over my exposed skin, awkwardness quickly blooming into desire. When she put her hands between my legs, the last of my shyness vanished. #Quote by Audrey Coulthurst
Losing quotes by Mesa Selimovic
#198. But we belong to no one, we're always on some frontier, always someone's dowry. Is it then surprising that we're poor? For centuries we've been trying to find, trying to recognize ourselves. Soon we won't even know who we are, we're already forgetting that we've even been striving for anything. Others do us the honor of letting us march under their banners, since we have none of our own. They entice us when they need us, and reject us when we're no longer any use to them. The saddest land in the world, the most unhappy people in the world. We're losing our identity, but we cannot assume another, foreign one. We've been severed from our roots, but haven't become part of anything else; foreign to everyone, both to those who are our kin and those who won't take us in and adopt us as their own. We live at a crossroads of worlds, at a border between peoples, in everyone's way. And someone always thinks we're to blame for something. The waves of history crash against us, as against a reef. We're fed up with those in power and we've made a virtue out of distress: we've become noble-minded out of spite. You're ruthless on a whim. So who's backward? #Quote by Mesa Selimovic
Losing quotes by Michael Lewis
#199. Losing shouldn't be fun. It's not fun for me. If I'm going to be miserable, you're going to be miserable. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Losing quotes by Colum McCann
#200. I told him that I loved him and that I'd always love him and I felt like a child who throws a centavo into a fountain and then she has to tell someone her most extraordinary wish even though she knows that the wish should be kept secret and that, in telling it, she is quite probably losing it. He replied that I was not to worry, that the penny could come out of the fountain again and again and again. #Quote by Colum McCann
