Meaning Making quotes by Hans-Hermann Hoppe
#1. Hence, contrary to the conclusion arrived at by the public goods theorists, logic forces one to accept the result that only a pure market system can safeguard the rationality, from the point of view of the consumers, of a decision to produce a public good. And only under a pure capitalist order could it be ensured that the decision about how much of a public good to produce (provided it should be produced at all) would be rational as well. 17 No less than a semantic revolution of truly Orwellian dimensions would be required to come up with a different result. Only if one were willing to interpret someone's "no" as really meaning "yes," the "nonbuying of something" as meaning that it is really "preferred over that which the nonbuying person does instead of nonbuying," of "force" really meaning "freedom," of "noncontracting" really meaning "making a contract" and so on, could the public goods theorists' point be "proven. #Quote by Hans-Hermann Hoppe
Meaning Making quotes by Vernon Richards
#2. "The true Islamic concept of peace goes something like this: "Peace comes through submission to Muhammad and his concept of Allah" (i.e. Islam). As such the Islamic concept of peace, meaning making the whole world Muslim, is actually a mandate for war. It was inevitable and unavoidable that the conflict would eventually reach our borders, and so it has." #Quote by Vernon Richards
Meaning Making quotes by Margaret J. Wheatley
#3. Our growing addiction to the Internet is impairing precious human capacities such as memory, concentration, pattern recognition, meaning-making, and intimacy. We are becoming more restless, more impatient, more demanding, and more insatiable, even as we become more connected and creative. We are rapidly losing the ability to think long about any- thing, even those issues we care about. We flit, moving restlessly from one link to another. #Quote by Margaret J. Wheatley
Meaning Making quotes by Rebecca McClanahan
#4. Memory is an act of meaning-making. It collects the disparate pieces of our lives and distills them. #Quote by Rebecca McClanahan
Meaning Making quotes by Rosemary Hennessy
#5. As one of the most pervasive forms of cultural narrative in industrialized societies, commercial film serves as an extremely powerful vehicle of myth… To some extent the scripts that do get picked up manage to be supported because they already articulate a culture's social imaginary – the prevailing images a society needs to project about itself in order to
maintain certain features of its organization. This social imaginary is not simply encoded in a film or decoded by the viewer from the film's formal structures. Rather, the mythic
meanings of films are the effect of a social and dynamic process of meaning-making in which their production and reception participate. Any film text comes to make sense by means of the
historically available modes of intelligibility – a variety of assumptions about reality – through which the spectator chains together the film's signifiers into a meaningful story. #Quote by Rosemary Hennessy
Meaning Making quotes by Lev Shestov
#6. But nobody has ever yet called a philosopher "a hired conscience," though everybody gives the lawyer this nickname. Why this partiality? #Quote by Lev Shestov
Meaning Making quotes by Kanye West
#7. If you don't make Christmas presents, meaning making something that's so emotionally connected to people, don't talk to me. #Quote by Kanye West
Meaning Making quotes by Lev Shestov
#8. After a tragedy, a farce. Philosophy enters into her power, and the earth returns under one's feet. #Quote by Lev Shestov
Meaning Making quotes by Russell Edson
#9. One feels that things are about to change. I have felt this all my life. It is a readiness that robs every act of meaning, making every situation obsolete, putting the present into the past. #Quote by Russell Edson
Meaning Making quotes by Eric Maisel
#10. The primary challenge that smart people must deal with is making sense of meaning. Natural psychology suggests that the best answer to this problem is donning the mantle of meaning-maker and engaging in value-based meaning-making. No smart person is immune to this problem. In fact, it is the most significant emotional issue for our smartest 15 percent. #Quote by Eric Maisel
Meaning Making quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#11. Obama wants people, as many people as he can get, covered by the government, exchanges, however you want to phrase it, and the more the better, and the sooner, the better, making it impossible to take it away. Meaning, making it impossible to repeal Obamacare. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Meaning Making quotes by Geraldine Brooks

Meaning Making quotes by Roberto Assagioli
#13. Psychosynthesis is interested in the whole building. We try to build an elevator which will allow a person access to every level of his personality. After all, a building with only a basement is very limited. We want to open up the terrace where you can sun-bathe or look at the stars. Our concern is the synthesis of all areas of the personality. That means psychosynthesis is holistic, global and inclusive. It is not against psychoanalysis or even behavior modification but it insists that the needs for meaning, for higher values, for a spiritual life, are as real as biological or social needs. We deny that there are any isolated human problems. #Quote by Roberto Assagioli
Meaning Making quotes by Jessica Martinez
#14. That's to British," I countered.
"What is?"
"Making sweeping generalizations about Americans because that makes you feel better about having a national inferiority complex the size of the Atlantic Ocean. I was just trying to be helpful, but if folding your pizza threatens you sense of patriotism, you probably shouldn't do it. #Quote by Jessica Martinez
Meaning Making quotes by Glenn Beck
#15. I was in Washington, D.C., on the morning show, by the time I was 18, programming a station by 19, No. 1 in the mornings. I think I was making, I don't know, a quarter of a million dollars by the time I was 25. #Quote by Glenn Beck
Meaning Making quotes by Amy Matayo
#16. Last words. They can kill you with their lack of meaning, slay you with the absence of thoughtfulness, shackle you to a career of writing lyrics for the rest of your life just to hopefully one day get them right. Last words cut. Last words haunt. Especially if they're careless. Especially if you have no hope of ever having another chance to make them better. #Quote by Amy Matayo
Meaning Making quotes by Adam Carolla
#17. People see me going around constantly flipping off lights and think I'm OCD. No, I'm just turned off by lights that are turned on unnecessarily. It's not about wasted money, it's just about waste. Whenever I see someone throwing out food, I just picture all the energy that went into making that food being lost - the diesel in the farm equipment that picked it, the energy in the fertilizer and the whole fertilizer plant, the truck that brought it to the restaurant, the BTUs used to cook it, and the electricity for the heat lamp at the shitty restaurant. All gone because you couldn't finish your taco salad. #Quote by Adam Carolla
Meaning Making quotes by John Ortberg
#18. A lot of people are dissatisfied with their jobs. "Theologian" Drew Carey said, "You hate your job? There's a support group for that. It's called everybody. They meet at the bar." A research group affiliated with the University of Chicago recently listed the ten least happy jobs in the world and the ten happiest jobs in the world. What they found was the ten least happy jobs actually were more financially lucrative and offered higher status than the ten happiest jobs. The difference? People in the happiest jobs had a higher sense of meaning. Less money, less status, but a higher sense of meaning. The main thing you bring home from your work is not a paycheck. The main thing you bring home from work is your soul. Work is a soul function. We're made to create value. The writer of Ecclesiastes says, "There is nothing better for a person than that he should make his soul enjoy good in his work. This too, I see, is from the hand of God. #Quote by John Ortberg
Meaning Making quotes by Vaclav Havel
#19. The tragic element in modern man, not ignore the meaning of his life, but it bothers him less and less. #Quote by Vaclav Havel
Meaning Making quotes by Giorgio Morandi
#20. I believe that nothing can be more abstract, more unreal, than what we actually see. We know that all we can see of the objective world, as human beings, never really exists as we see and understand it. Matter exists, of course, but has no intrinsic meaning of its own, such as the meanings that we attach to it. We can know only that a cup is a cup, that a tree is a tree. #Quote by Giorgio Morandi
Meaning Making quotes by Devin Townsend
#21. I started to see human beings as little lonesome, water based, pink meat, life forms pushing air through themselves and making noises that the other little pieces of meat seemed to understand. I was thinking to myself, 'There's five billion people here but we've never been more isolated.' The only result of the aggressive individualism we pursue is that you lose sight of your compassion and we go to bed at night thinking, 'Is this all there is?' because we don't feel fulfilled. #Quote by Devin Townsend
Meaning Making quotes by James Russell Lowell
#22. Democracy has a habit of making itself generally disagreeable by asking the powers-that-be at the most inconvenient moment whether they are the powers-that-ought-to-be #Quote by James Russell Lowell
Meaning Making quotes by Fetty Wap
#23. I love making music. It's just something that I can't stop doing. #Quote by Fetty Wap
Meaning Making quotes by Greg L. Hawkins
#24. Nothing has a greater impact on spiritual growth than reflection on Scripture. If churches could do only one thing to help people at all levels of spiritual maturity grow in their relationship with Christ, their choice is clear. They would inspire, encourage, and equip their people to read the Bible - specifically, to reflect on Scripture for meaning in their lives. The numbers say most churches are missing the mark - because only one out of five congregants reflects on Scripture every day. #Quote by Greg L. Hawkins
Meaning Making quotes by Anthony Marra
#25. We know the meaning of nothing but the words we use to describe it. #Quote by Anthony Marra
Meaning Making quotes by Jerry Seinfeld
#26. All I ever wanted to do is make people laugh. #Quote by Jerry Seinfeld
Meaning Making quotes by Kevin Hearne
#27. I think he got your goat, Atticus! And I've been meaning to ask you about the expression. When people get your goat, what do they do with it? Do they eat it or hold it for ransom or what? #Quote by Kevin Hearne
Meaning Making quotes by Paulo Coelho
#28. I feel like making the mistakes I always wanted to make, but never had the courage to ... I can make new friends and teach them how to be crazy too in order to be wise. I'll tell them not to follow the manuals of good behaviour but to discover their own lives, desires, adventures and to live #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Meaning Making quotes by John Dryden
#29. Doeg, though without knowing how or why,
Made still a blundering kind of melody;
Spurr'd boldly on, and dash'd through thick and thin,
Through sense and nonsense, never out nor in;
Free from all meaning whether good or bad,
And in one word, heroically mad. #Quote by John Dryden
Meaning Making quotes by Rachael Ray
#30. I did 30 Minute Meals for five years on local television, and I earned nothing the first two years. Then I earned $50 a segment. I spent more than that on gas and groceries, but I really enjoyed making the show and I loved going to a viewer's house each week. I knew I enjoyed it, so I stuck with it even though it cost me. #Quote by Rachael Ray
Meaning Making quotes by John Cage
#31. The grand thing about the human mind is that it can turn its own tables and see meaninglessness as ultimate meaning. #Quote by John Cage
Meaning Making quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#32. I don't want to be a tree; I want to be its meaning. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Meaning Making quotes by Debra Anastasia
#33. Livia rubbed Blake's unresponsive hands and talking of their future. "Blake, we'll walk in the woods together. We have forever. Just wake up, okay? That's the deal we're making right here. You wake up and we get to have forever. #Quote by Debra Anastasia
Meaning Making quotes by Woody Guthrie
#34. If we fix it so's you can't make money on war, we'll all forget what we're killing folks for. #Quote by Woody Guthrie
Meaning Making quotes by Anneke Jacob
#35. They'd need to do some shopping. As he adjusted the shoulders of the last dress, their eyes met in the mirror. He raised his right hand solemnly. "I swear I never played with Barbie dolls."
A grin flickered at the corner of her mouth, and she opened her mouth, then closed it again.
He raised an eyebrow. "You might as well say it; go on."
Her expression in the mirror was both sly and apprehensive. "Just thinking perhaps you were making up for lost time."
He ran his hand up beneath the back of the dress and pinched her, making her yelp. "Yup, no question about it. Lego was never like this." He stroked her ass and the straps that demarcated ass from thigh. "Not like this. #Quote by Anneke Jacob
Meaning Making quotes by Pauline Oliveros
#36. Listening is selecting and interpreting and acting and making decisions. #Quote by Pauline Oliveros
Meaning Making quotes by Jean-Paul Sartre
#37. The diversity of things, their individuality, were only an appearance, a veneer. This veneer had melted,
leaving soft, monstrous masses, all in disorder - naked, in a frightful, obscene nakedness. I kept myself from making the slightest movement, but I didn't need to move in order to #Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre
Meaning Making quotes by Francesca Woodman
#38. A lot of photography is making records of people, as objects, friends. It's like organizing a wardrobe - in terms of size etc. #Quote by Francesca Woodman
Meaning Making quotes by Mark Vonnegut
#39. The way I played music there was the way I wanted to farm, chop wood, cook, make love, raise children. Everything. A lo of it had to do with things I felt while I played. If only I could feel that sense of total absorption in what I was doing when I was doing other things. It was more than absorption, it was spontaneity, competence, a sense of grace and playfulness, of being in touch with an inexhaustible source of energy and beauty. #Quote by Mark Vonnegut
Meaning Making quotes by Ernest Becker
#40. Doesn't matter whether the cultural hero-system is frankly magical, religious, and primitive or secular, scientific, and civilized. It is still a mythical hero-system in which people serve in order to earn a feeling of primary value, of cosmic specialness, of ultimate usefulness to creation, of unshakable meaning. They earn this feeling by carving out a place in nature, by building an edifice that reflects human value: a temple, a cathedral, a totem pole, a skyscraper, a family that spans three generations. The hope and belief is that the things that man creates in society are of lasting worth and meaning, that they outlive or outshine death and decay, that man and his products count. #Quote by Ernest Becker
Meaning Making quotes by M.L. Stedman
#41. Akward, like when a mad aunt starts up about Jesus at the dinner table. As Septimus showed him to the door, the sergeant replaced his hat and said quietly, "A cruel piece of mischief-making, looks like. I reckon it's about time to bury the hatchet against Fritz. All a filthy business, but there's no need for pranks like this. I'd keep it under your hat, the note. Don't want to encourage copycats." He shook hands with Septimus and made his way up the long, gum-lined drive. Back in his study, Septimus put a hand on Hannah's shoulder. "Come on, girlie, chin up. Mustn't let this get the better of you. #Quote by M.L. Stedman
Meaning Making quotes by Leisa Rayven
#42. If I wasn't such a selfish asshole, I'd wish to men to fall all over themselves to be with you. I'd want them to flatter you and buy you presents, and dedicate themselves to making you happy. But every time I have those thoughts…every single time, the deepest parts of me know without a doubt that the only man on this planet who could ever make you truly, deeply happy…is me. #Quote by Leisa Rayven
Meaning Making quotes by Jeffrey Pierce
#43. I find it valuable to watch what I do. I like to know when I'm making a choice if it actually works or not. #Quote by Jeffrey Pierce
Meaning Making quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Meaning Making quotes by Iris Dement
#45. Turn off the TV and start digging around for information that's not from a corporation trying to make money. #Quote by Iris Dement
Meaning Making quotes by Ayn Rand
#46. Their love of existence - chosen in the knowledge that nothing will be given, that one must make one's own desire and every shape of its fulfillment - through the steps of shaping metal, rails and motors - they had moved by the power of the thought that one remakes the earth for one's enjoyment, that man's spirit gives meaning to insentient matter by molding it to serve one's chosen goal. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Meaning Making quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#47. View life as a series of movie frames, the ending and meaning may not be apparent until the very end of the movie, and yet, each of the hundreds of individual frames has meaning within the context of the whole movie. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Meaning Making quotes by Livia Jamerlan
#48. Making you squirm ... making your body convulse." He lowered his lips to my neck, kissing it softly. "I want you, Braelynn. Let me have you. Let me take you."
My conversations with Kennedy and #Quote by Livia Jamerlan
