Moment Of Truth quotes by Jan Carlzon
#1. We have 50,000 moments of truth every day. #Quote by Jan Carlzon
Moment Of Truth quotes by Alexander Schmemann
#2. The Church is not a society for escape-corporately or individually-from this world to taste of the mystical bliss of eternity. Communion is not a 'mystical experience': we drink of the chalice of Christ, and He gave Himself for the life of the world. The bread on the paten and the wine in the chalice are to remind us of the incarnation of the Son of God, of the cross and death. And thus it is the very joy of the Kingdom that makes us remember the world and pray for it. It is the very communion with the Holy Spirit that enables us to love the world with the love of Christ. The Eucharist is the sacrament of unity and the moment of truth: here we see the world in Christ, as it really is, and not from our particular and therefore limited and partial points of view. Intercession begins here, in the glory of the messianic banquet, and this is the only true beginning of the Church's mission. It is when, 'having put aside all earthly care,' we seem to have left this world, that we, in fact, recover it in all its reality. #Quote by Alexander Schmemann
Moment Of Truth quotes by Anonymous
#3. Socrates' dialectic was a Greek, rational version of the Indian brahmodya, the competition that attempted to formulate absolute truth but always ended in silence. For the Indian sages, the moment of insight came when they realized the inadequacy of their words, and thus intuited the ineffable. In that final moment of silence, they had sensed the brahman, even though they could not define it coherently. Socrates was also trying to elicit a moment of truth, when his interlocutors appreciated the creative profundity of human ignorance. #Quote by Anonymous
Moment Of Truth quotes by Kat Simons
#4. What she'd thought was love before felt like a girlhood crush compared to the feeling now crashing over her. It sucked her under like riding whitewater rapids, spinning her around, and tossing her wildly into the air. There was no land, no balance, nothing to hold on to except Victor. In those quiet moments, he captured her loyalty and heart forever. She was done. #Quote by Kat Simons
Moment Of Truth quotes by Amalia Kahana-Carmon
#5. Every human encounter is the external embodiment of an attraction between two magnetic fields. The encounter comes suddenly, unexpectedly. It is a moment of truth. It is a moment of revelation, as when the right ray of sun penetrates through the right window pane, and falls with the right slant on one picture in the museum. #Quote by Amalia Kahana-Carmon
Moment Of Truth quotes by Sierra Donovan
#6. All right," he said. "Ready for the moment of truth?"
Lindsay looked at him quizzically.
Fred held a wooden spoonful of fudge up in front of her, waving it lightly through the air to cool it. "Here. Time to see if I've got it right."
Lindsay looked at him over the spoon, a wonderful complication of emotions in her eyes. Did she want him to win or lose the bet? Fred wasn't sure she knew the answer herself. She turned her face up toward him as he held the spoon to her lips. And then, as she tasted it, she closed her eyes, savoring the chocolate. Her expression was one of blissful surrender.
This was the real Lindsay, her face unguarded, completely in the moment. Very much like a woman lost in a kiss.
He never should have brought the bloody mistletoe. #Quote by Sierra Donovan
Moment Of Truth quotes by Victor Pinchuk
#7. Financial crisis is the moment of truth for real collectors and true artists. #Quote by Victor Pinchuk
Moment Of Truth quotes by Nikolai Grozni
#8. On the bottom staff - the taste of earth, worms, and dust; the smell of dead leaves and frankincense. On the top - the luminosity of awareness making sense of transience and predestination. Three quiet major chords marked the moment of death, because death was sweet. It was our true home, the home we'd left and been trying to get back to. It's what we had passed through before and would pass through again, a moment of truth that suspended the weight of thought, the weight of the will to inhabit a dead universe. #Quote by Nikolai Grozni
Moment Of Truth quotes by David Ogilvy
#9. If you have all the research, all the ground rules, all the directives, all the data - it doesn't mean the ad is written. Then you've got to close the door and write something - that is the moment of truth which we all try to postpone as long as possible. #Quote by David Ogilvy
Moment Of Truth quotes by Denis Waitley
#10. Make this moment the moment of truth about yourself. You have been selling short all of your life. #Quote by Denis Waitley
Moment Of Truth quotes by Cath Crowley
#11. Mum says when wanting collides with getting, that's the moment of truth. I want to collide. I want to run right into Shadow and let the force spill our thoughts so we can pick each other up and pass each other back like piles of shiny stones. #Quote by Cath Crowley
Moment Of Truth quotes by CrimethInc.
#12. After simmering years of censorship and repression, the masses finally throng the streets. The chants echoing off the walls to build to a roar from all directions, stoking the courage of the crowds as they march on the center of the capital. Activists inside each column maintain contact with each other via text messages; communications centers receive reports and broadcast them around the city; affinity groups plot the movements of the police via digital mapping. A rebel army of bloggers uploads video footage for all the world to see as the two hosts close for battle. Suddenly, at the moment of truth, the lines go dead. The insurgents look up from the blank screens of their cell phones to see the sun reflecting off the shields of the advancing riot police, who are still guided by close circuits of fully networked technology. The rebels will have to navigate by dead reckoning against a hyper-informed adversary.

All this already happened, years ago, when President Mubarak shut down the communications grid during the Egyptian uprising of 2011. A generation hence, when the same scene recurs, we can imagine the middle-class protesters - the cybourgeoisie - will simply slump forward, blind and deaf and wracked by seizures as the microchips in their cerebra run haywire, and it will be up to the homeless and destitute to guide them to safety. #Quote by CrimethInc.
Moment Of Truth quotes by Lee Iacocca
#13. As you go through life, there are thousands of little forks in the road, and there are a few really big forks-those moments of reckoning, moments of truth. #Quote by Lee Iacocca
Moment Of Truth quotes by Gregory David Roberts
#14. But the soul has no culture. The soul has no nations. The soul has no colour or accent or way of life. The soul is forever. The soul is one. And when the heart has its moment of truth and sorrow, the soul can't be stilled. #Quote by Gregory David Roberts
Moment Of Truth quotes by Gregory David Roberts
#15. When the heart has its moment of truth & sorrow, the soul can't be stilled. #Quote by Gregory David Roberts
Moment Of Truth quotes by Stephen Covey
#16. Exercise integrity in the moment of truth. #Quote by Stephen Covey
Moment Of Truth quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#17. Losing faith is a complicated business and takes time. There are no epiphanies, no "moments of truth." It takes much thought and concentration in the later phases, which thenselves come about through an accumulation of small accidents: examples of general injustice, misfortune falling upon the godly, prayers of one's own unanswered. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Moment Of Truth quotes by Etgar Keret
#18. The fact is that everything I have in my pockets is carefully chosen so I'll always be prepared. Everything is there so I can be at an advantage at the moment of truth. Actually, that's not accurate. Everything's there so I won't be at a disadvantage at the moment of truth. #Quote by Etgar Keret
Moment Of Truth quotes by Pema Chodron
#19. Difficult things provoke all your irritations and bring your habitual patterns to the surface. And that becomes the moment of truth. You have the choice to launch into your lousy habitual patterns, or to stay with the rawness and discomfort of the situation and let it transform you. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Moment Of Truth quotes by Lou Bergholz
#20. There's nothing more powerful in "Your Moment of Truth" than people owning their truth, their part in a situation. #Quote by Lou Bergholz
Moment Of Truth quotes by Brian Roberts
#21. I'm a spreadsheet guy. But you get to that moment of truth, and it has nothing to do with a spreadsheet. You've got to factor in what your competitors are doing, what the technology is doing, what your shareholders want, what your employees want, what your customers want, and you've got to make it happen sometimes. #Quote by Brian Roberts
Moment Of Truth quotes by Stephen R. Covey
#22. A moment of choice is a moment of truth. It's the testing point of our character and competence. #Quote by Stephen R. Covey
Moment Of Truth quotes by Jacqueline Woodson
#23. You're writing, you're coasting, and you're thinking, 'This is the best thing I've ever written, and it's coming so easily, and these characters are so great.' You put it aside for whatever reason, and you open it up a week later and the characters have turned to cardboard and the book has completely fallen apart," she says. "That's the moment of truth for every writer: Can I go on from here and make this book into something? I think it separates the writers from the nonwriters. And I think it's the reason a lot of people have that unfinished manuscript around the house, that albatross. #Quote by Jacqueline Woodson
Moment Of Truth quotes by Edmar Mednis
#24. Once you are in the endgame, the moment of truth has arrived ... The amount of points that can be gained (and saved) by correct endgame play is enormous, yet often underestimated. #Quote by Edmar Mednis
Moment Of Truth quotes by Darren Hardy
#25. When you've prepared, practiced, studied, and consistently put in the required effort, sooner or later you'll be presented with your own moment of truth. In that moment, you will define who you are and who you are becoming. It is in those moments where growth and improvement live--when we either step forward or shrink back, when we climb to the top of the podium and seize the medal or we continue to applaud sullenly from the crowd for others' victories. #Quote by Darren Hardy
Moment Of Truth quotes by Arthur Koestler
#26. The Eureka act proper, the moment of truth experienced by the creative individual, is paralleled on the collective plane by the emergence, out of the scattered fragments, of a new synthesis, brought about by a quick succession of individual discoveries-where, characteristically, the same discovery is often made by several individuals at the same time. #Quote by Arthur Koestler
Moment Of Truth quotes by Danzy Senna
#27. I recalled a theory my father had concocted one night, while we sat in an Oakland juke joint sharing a plate of ribs. He'd said humor, above all else, was what bound each of us and separated each of us from one another. Humor was the great moment of truth. What we thought was funny was how we defined ourselves, and revealed ourselves, whether we knew it or not. #Quote by Danzy Senna
Moment Of Truth quotes by Herbert Simon
#28. In the computer field, the moment of truth is a running program; all else is prophecy. #Quote by Herbert Simon
Moment Of Truth quotes by Jeremy Stoppelman
#29. About every year or two, there is a moment of truth where there's some new development in the marketplace, some new technology, some sort of existential crisis. You just have to be vigilant about looking out for those moments. #Quote by Jeremy Stoppelman
Moment Of Truth quotes by Les Dawson
#30. You do something you're really quite proud of, and the public doesn't like it. Then you do something that perhaps you're not at all happy with and the public loves it. And that's the moment of truth, because it's the audience that's the final judge. #Quote by Les Dawson
Moment Of Truth quotes by Edmar Mednis
#31. After a bad opening, there is hope for the middle game. After a bad
middle game, there is hope for the endgame. But once you are
in the endgame, the moment of truth has arrived #Quote by Edmar Mednis
Moment Of Truth quotes by Ronnie James Dio
#32. For every moment of truth, there's confusion in life #Quote by Ronnie James Dio
Moment Of Truth quotes by Ray Bradbury
#33. When a man talks from the heart, in his moment of truth, he speaks poetry. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Moment Of Truth quotes by Christian Howell
#34. Venetia thought of dogs as important enablers on our paths of individual enlightenment. This could manifest itself as our own personal spiritual awareness, represented by the metaphors of religious literature. Or reconciliation with the world as finite and only scientifically explicable. Regardless of the understanding at which you arrive, indulging a dog playfully took you to a moment of truth. Into the present. Real Joy. This is what interested Venetia. #Quote by Christian Howell
Moment Of Truth quotes by Ann Bancroft
#35. For me, exploration is about that journey to the interior, into your own heart. I'm always wondering, how will I act at my moment of truth? Will I rise up and do what's right, even if every fiber of my being is telling me otherwise? #Quote by Ann Bancroft
Moment Of Truth quotes by Goo Goo Dolls
#36. Can't fight the moment of truth in your lies. #Quote by Goo Goo Dolls
Moment Of Truth quotes by Danish Haroon
#37. The pains of life will pass away,
no need to wait another day.
All we can do,
is smile and pray.
The moment of truth and time will show,
All shall reap,
what they sow. #Quote by Danish Haroon
Moment Of Truth quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#38. Every Republican is on record as saying Obamacare is unacceptable, intolerable, and they're gonna do everything they could to keep it from happening. But, at the moment of truth, they're not. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Moment Of Truth quotes by Carl Watson
#39. I saw a bullfrog snap a tiny bird off a reed once, swallowing it just like that, grinding the singing thing to foodstuff in its slimy belly, and the witnessing of that act produced in me an insight: that this moment of terror before resignation was possibly the only ascertainable moment of truth we can ever know in life. #Quote by Carl Watson
Moment Of Truth quotes by Nastassja Kinski
#40. When I cannot get that moment of truth where you feel yourself opening up like a flower, I absolutely loathe the bloody camera. I can just feel this black hole eyeing me, sucking me in, and I feel like smashing it to smithereens. #Quote by Nastassja Kinski
Moment Of Truth quotes by Anuranjita Kumar
#41. You will be amazed to see how just one moment of truth has the potential to simplify your struggles! #Quote by Anuranjita Kumar
Moment Of Truth quotes by Nalini Singh
#42. Love, she realized at that terrible moment of truth, could be incredibly unselfish, even when it hurt until she bled. #Quote by Nalini Singh
Moment Of Truth quotes by Sean Stewart
#43. A real friendship is like a marriage: for richer and poorer, for better and for worse. If the moment of truth comes, and you can't bear to make a sacrifice, what kind of friend are you? #Quote by Sean Stewart
Moment Of Truth quotes by Jose Saramago
#44. He had grown so accustomed to feeling tired that he took a certain pleasure in it, the pleasure of someone who has given up, the pleasure of someone who, when the moment of truth arrives, turns back the clock and says: "It's too early." The pleasure of self-sacrifice. But sacrifice is only complete when it is kept hidden from view; making it visible is tantamount to saying, "Look at me, look how self-sacrificing I am," and making sure that the other people don't forget it. Therefore he had not yet given up entirely, and behind his resignation hope still lingered, just as the blue sky is always there behind the clouds. #Quote by Jose Saramago
Moment Of Truth quotes by John Updike
#45. The moment when the finished book or, better yet, a tightly packed carton of finished books arrives on my doorstep is the moment of truth, of culmination; its bliss lasts as much as five minutes, until the first typographical error or production flaw is noticed. #Quote by John Updike
Moment Of Truth quotes by Chuck Yeager
#46. At the moment of truth, there are either reasons or results. #Quote by Chuck Yeager
Moment Of Truth quotes by Paul Thomas Anderson
#47. I am always looking for that nuance, that moment of truth, and you can't really do that fast. #Quote by Paul Thomas Anderson
Moment Of Truth quotes by Harvey Keitel
#48. I believe every day when I wake up and go to bed and during my dreaming time there's some moment of truth that's in front of me that will always be in front of me until the end of days. #Quote by Harvey Keitel
Moment Of Truth quotes by Caitlin Doughty
#49. A culture that denies death is a barrier to achieving a good death. Overcoming our fears and wild misconceptions about death will be no small task, but we shouldn't forget how quickly other cultural prejudices--racism, sexism, homophobia--have begun to topple in the recent past. It is high time death had its own moment of truth. #Quote by Caitlin Doughty
Moment Of Truth quotes by Mark A. King
#50. It's like taking an entire life and finding what's important within it and writing about that, that essential moment of experience. #Quote by Mark A. King
Moment Of Truth quotes by George R R Martin
#51. When I was thirteen, I wed a crofter's daughter. Or so I thought her. I was blind with love for her, and thought she felt the same for me, but my father rubbed my face in the truth. My bride was a whore Jaime had hired to give me my first taste of manhood. #Quote by George R R Martin
Moment Of Truth quotes by Christopher Rice
#52. That's what guilt truly is, Scott realizes, a fishhook's tug on the third or fourth minute of every happy moment. #Quote by Christopher Rice
Moment Of Truth quotes by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
#53. We always emerge from the death of a loved one like a phoenix arising from its funeral pyre. #Quote by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
Moment Of Truth quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#54. Months later, when I rarely saw the Angels, I still had the legacy of the big machine -- four hundred pounds of chrome and deep red noise to take out on the Coast Highway and cut loose at three in the morning, when all the cops were lurking over on 101. My first crash had wrecked the bike completely and it took several months to have it rebuilt. After that I decided to ride it differently: I would stop pushing my luck on curves, always wear a helmet and try to keep within range of the nearest speed limit ... my insurance had already been canceled and my driver's license was hanging by a thread.

So it was always at night, like a werewolf, that I would take the thing out for an honest run down the coast. I would start in Golden Gate Park, thinking only to run a few long curves to clear my head ... but in a matter of minutes I'd be out at the beach with the sound of the engine in my ears, the surf booming up on the sea wall and a fine empty road stretching all the way down to Santa Cruz ... not even a gas station in the whole seventy miles; the only public light along the way is an all-night diner down around Rockaway Beach.

There was no helmet on those nights, no speed limit, and no cooling it down on the curves. The momentary freedom of the park was like the one unlucky drink that shoves a wavering alcoholic off the wagon. I would come out of the park near the soccer field and pause for a moment at the stop sign, wondering if I knew anyone parked out ther #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Moment Of Truth quotes by B.B. King
#55. My wife Martha used to call me Ol' Lemon Face because of my facial contortions when I play Lucille. I squeeze my eyes and open my mouth, raise my eyebrows, cock my head and God knows what else. I look like I'm in torture, when in truth, I'm in ecstasy. I don't do it for show. Every fiber of my being is tingling. #Quote by B.B. King
Moment Of Truth quotes by Meghan Quinn
#56. There is a whole community out there who loves love, who loves romance, and I'm one of them. It's a world I love living in, where there are happily ever afters, the odd girl gets the good looking guy, and where chivalry isn't lost. I know it can't all be true, that life isn't as grand as some novels make it out to be, but I still love every single story because it's an escape from reality, a moment in time where you can daydream of the impossible, where there is a chance of watching true love unfold right in front of you. #Quote by Meghan Quinn
Moment Of Truth quotes by Vladimir Sergeyevich Solovyov
#57. Truth as a living power that takes possession of the internal being of a human and actually rescues him from false self-assertion is termed Love. Love as the actual abrogation of egoism is the real justification and salvation of individuality. Love is greater than rational consciousness, yet without the latter it could not act as an internal saving power, elevating and not abrogating individuality. Only thanks to a rational consciousness (or, what is the same thing, a consciousness of the truth) can a human being discriminate his very self, i.e., his true individuality, from his egoism, and therefore sacrifice this egoism, and surrender himself to love. In doing so he finds not merely a living, but also a life-giving power, and does not forfeit his individual being together with his egoism, but on the contrary makes it eternal. #Quote by Vladimir Sergeyevich Solovyov
Moment Of Truth quotes by Maximus The Confessor
#58. When our intellect has shaken off its many opinions about created things, then the inner principle of truth appears clearly to it, providing it with a foundation of real knowledge and removing its former preconceptions as though removing scales from eyes, as happened in the case of St. Paul (cf. Acts 9:18). For an understanding of Scripture that does not go beyond the literal meaning, and a view of the sensible world that relies exclusively on sense perception, are indeed scales, blinding the soul's visionary faculty and preventing access to the pure Logos of truth. #Quote by Maximus The Confessor
Moment Of Truth quotes by Jaclyn Moriarty
#59. Early on, when they'd just started home schooling together, he'd written a note on the margin of her page: "What's your star sign?"
She'd turned to him, "What does my star sigh?" and he'd seen how much she'd liked the idea that she owned a star, and that it sighed; he'd seen in her eyes that her mind was rushing through the possible words that it could sigh.
It's true that his handwriting was bad: the "n" looked a lot like an "h."
But when he's crossed it out and written "sign," underlining the "n" three times, a vagueness had wandered onto her face, and she'd thought for a moment, then said, "Pisces," and smiled. #Quote by Jaclyn Moriarty
Moment Of Truth quotes by Mari Perron
#60. Expressions you call art are desires to share the Self in a new way. These expressions you call art are expressions of a Self who observes and interacts in relationship. They are not expressions that remain contained to who you are or who you think yourself to be. They are not expressions of the self alone. They are not expressions of the self alone in terms you might consider autobiographical, and they are not expressions of the self alone that you would consider the self in separation. They are rather expressions of the Self in union--expressions of what the Self sees, feels, envisions, imagines in relationship...Art becomes something in truth by expanding awareness, or in other words, by making something known. That is what true relationship does and is its purpose as well as what it is. #Quote by Mari Perron
Moment Of Truth quotes by Winston Graham
#61. Ross stared a moment at the piece of flotsam he had brought home and hoped to salvage. She was standing there in her ragged shirt and three-quarter-length breeches, her matted hair over her face and the dirty half-starved puppy at her feet. She stood with one toe turned in and both hands loosely behind her back, staring across at the library. He hardened his heart. Tomorrow would not do. #Quote by Winston Graham
Moment Of Truth quotes by Socrates
#62. Are you not ashamed of caring so much for the making of money and for fame and prestige, when you neither think nor care about wisdom and truth and the improvement of your soul? #Quote by Socrates
Moment Of Truth quotes by Ringo Starr
#63. Ringo: [On the 'Two Virgins' cover]
'The cover was the mind-blower - I remember to this day the moment when they came in and showed me. I don't really remember the music, I'd have to play it now. But he showed me the cover and I pointed to the 'Times': 'Oh, you've even got the Times in it...' as if he didn't have his dick hanging out.

I said, 'Ah, come on, John. You're doing all this stuff and it may be cool for you, but you know we all have to answer. It doesn't matter; whichever one of us does something, we all have to answer for it.' He said, 'Oh, Ringo, you only have to answer the phone.' I said, 'OK, fine,' because it was true. The press would be calling up, and just at that point I didn't want to be bothered - but in the end that's all I had to do: answer the phone. It was fine. Two or three people phoned and I said: 'See, he's got the Times on the cover. #Quote by Ringo Starr
Moment Of Truth quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#64. Real destiny takes everything - the last drop of blood, and strip out your veins to be sure - and gives it back doubled. Quadrupled. A thousand-fold! But you can't give halves. You have to give it all. I know. I swear. I've come back from the dead to speak the truth to you. Real destiny gives you a mountain of life, and puts you on top of it. #Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold
Moment Of Truth quotes by Michael Servetus
#65. Neither with those nor with the others, with all I agree and dissent; in all part of truth and part of error must be seen. #Quote by Michael Servetus
Moment Of Truth quotes by Virginia Woolf
#66. The train slows and lengthens, as we approach London, the centre, and my heart draws out too, in fear, in exaltation. I am about to meet
what? What extraordinary adventure awaits me, among these mail vans, these porters, these swarms of people calling taxis? I feel insignificant, lost, but exultant. With a soft shock we stop. I will let the others get before me. I will sit still one moment before I emerge into that chaos, that tumult. I will not anticipate what is to come. The huge uproar is in my ears. It sounds and resounds under this glass roof like the surge of a sea. We are cast down on the platform with our handbags. We are whirled asunder. My sense of self almost perishes; my contempt. I become drawn in, tossed down, thrown sky-high. I step on to the platform, grasping tightly all that I possess
one bag. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Moment Of Truth quotes by F. W. De Klerk
#67. I have made the most profound apology in front of the Truth Commission and on other occasions about the injustices which were wrought by apartheid. #Quote by F. W. De Klerk
Moment Of Truth quotes by Carl R. Rogers
#68. I find that this desire to be all of oneself in each moment - all the richness and complexity, with nothing hidden from oneself, and nothing feared in oneself - this is a common desire in those who have seemed to show much movement in therapy. I do not need to say that this is a difficult, and in its absolute sense an impossible goal. Yet one of the most evident trends in clients is to move toward becoming all of the complexity of one's changing self in each significant moment. #Quote by Carl R. Rogers
Moment Of Truth quotes by Adam Smith
#69. Let us suppose that the great empire of China, with all its myriads of inhabitants, was suddenly swallowed up by an earthquake, and let us consider how a man of humanity in Europe, who had no sort of connection with that part of the world, would be affected upon receiving intelligence of this dreadful calamity. He would, I imagine, first of all, express very strongly his sorrow for the misfortune of that unhappy people, he would make many melancholy reflections upon the precariousness of human life, and the vanity of all the labours of man, which could thus be annihilated in a moment. He would too, perhaps, if he was a man of speculation, enter into many reasonings concerning the effects which this disaster might produce upon the commerce of Europe, and the trade and business of the world in general. And when all this fine philosophy was over, when all these humane sentiments had been once fairly expressed, he would pursue his business or his pleasure, take his repose or his diversion, with the same ease and tranquillity, as if no such accident had happened. The most frivolous disaster which could befall himself would occasion a more real disturbance. If he was to lose his little finger to-morrow, he would not sleep to-night; but, provided he never saw them, he will snore with the most profound security over the ruin of a hundred millions of his brethren, and the destruction of that immense multitude seems plainly an object less interesting to him, than this paltry misfortune #Quote by Adam Smith
Moment Of Truth quotes by Julia Quinn
#70. But he wanted to smile. He would have done, if he'd been able. Surely that had to be the most important thing.
The jabbing at his leg stopped for a bit, then started up again. Then there was a lovely, short pause, and then-
Damn, that hurt.
But not enough to cry out. Although he might have moaned. He wasn't sure. They'd poured hot water on him. Lots of it. He wondered if they were trying to poach his leg.
Boiled meat. How terribly British of them.
He chuckled. He was funny. Who knew he was so funny?
"Oh, my God!" he heard Honoria yell. "What did I do to him?"
He laughed some more. Because she sounded ridiculous.Almost as if she were speaking through a foghorn.Oooorrrrhhhh myyy Grrrrrrrrrd.
He wondered if she could hear it,too.
Wait a moment..Honoria was asking what she'd done to him?Did that mean she was wielding the scissors now?He wasn't sure how he ought to feel about this.
On the other hand...boiled meat!
He laughed again,deciding he didn't care.God,he was funny.How was it possible no one had ever told him he was funny before? #Quote by Julia Quinn
Moment Of Truth quotes by Audrey Niffenegger
#71. The compelling thing about making art - or making anything, I suppose - is the moment when the vaporous, insubstantial idea becomes a solid there, a thing, a substance in a world of substances. #Quote by Audrey Niffenegger
Moment Of Truth quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#72. God has appointed the place where you are at the moment for you. Be strong and be of good courage, and know that if God finds you faithful in small things, He will then place you much higher in the spiritual world and will entrust you with much #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Moment Of Truth quotes by Robert Holden
#73. The meaning of life is not a search - it is a choice. Meaning is not found in things; meaning is what you make of things. The world means nothing by itself. You give it all the meaning it has. Thus, the meaning of life is a choice you make, not just once, but every waking hour of your day. 

Life is like art - it is all about interpretation. The moment anything happens to you, you interpret a meaning for it. The meaning you vote for then governs your perception, your thinking, your faith, your choices, your feelings, your behaviors, everything! Whenever you elect a new meaning, this changes everything. #Quote by Robert Holden
Moment Of Truth quotes by Jessica Gadziala
#74. The perfection of that silent moment was somehow better than a million mouthfulls promising forever. #Quote by Jessica Gadziala
Moment Of Truth quotes by Adam Copeland
#75. Truth be told, Patrick was staring at something in particular. Before him, at a distance about half the length of the boat, stood a creature of nightmare that returned his stare. Though Patrick could not see the thing's face, he knew it was looking right at him. That was how it always was. No face. No identity. Even the hands were gloved. But it was obvious that the robed and hooded figure had come to haunt him like some hellish visitation. #Quote by Adam Copeland
Moment Of Truth quotes by Iyanla Vanzant
#76. Step into this moment, because it is the only one you have right now. It is not wasted or thrown away. The divine opportunity could be stolen unless you tell yourself it is here right now; available to you this moment, to make of it anything you choose. Why not choose this moment, right now, to be available to yourself by declaring, I AM GOOD! ... The richness of the present is here. The fullness of now is present. If you are not here now, it means you could be missing the love, joy, peace and brand-new ideas that are here right now. #Quote by Iyanla Vanzant
Moment Of Truth quotes by Michelle Phan
#77. Seven years ago, in my first semester at college, the professors handed out MacBook Pros. With mine, I filmed a seven-minute tutorial on 'natural makeup' - just me, my laptop, and a cup of coffee. When, a week later, it clocked 40,000 Web views, I knew people were connecting with it, so I kept going. That moment changed my life. #Quote by Michelle Phan
Moment Of Truth quotes by Debasish Mridha
#78. Death is not the end; it is the beginning of the new life, the eternal life. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Moment Of Truth quotes by William Benton Clulow
#79. Many of the finest and most interesting emotions perish forever, because too complex and fugitive for expression. Of all things relating to man, his feelings are perhaps the most evanescent, the greater part dying in the moment of their birth. But while emotions perish, thought blended in diction is immortal. #Quote by William Benton Clulow
Moment Of Truth quotes by Moby
#80. There are so many causes. Gun control, climate change, deforestation, animal welfare, human welfare, education. Working on the big issues is noble and great, but being aware of what's going on around you right at this moment, being kind to the people around you, extending compassion and decency, not just to everyone you meet but also to yourself - I think that's one of the biggest challenges most people face. #Quote by Moby
Moment Of Truth quotes by Hannah Arendt

Moment Of Truth quotes by Mariana Zapata
#82. He cocked his neck from one side to the other as if trying to stretch the muscles. A long huff escaped from his mouth. "I've always told myself that when I have kids, I'm gonna to spoil the shit out of 'em."

I couldn't help but smile, though I kept my gaze forward. Dex as a dad? A bad-mouthed dad?

Dex smiled right then, morphing something inside of me that I couldn't completely recognize. The moment and intent was too heavy for me to bear. I didn't want to think of what all this honesty was doing to my insides. "You know what?"

He grunted.

"Your kids will probably come out of the womb saying the f-bomb."

"Fuck," he laughed loudly, confirming my guess. "You're probably right, babe."

I tilted my face to look at him, meeting those blue eyes that I knew even without the light, were the brightest blue I'd ever seen. "Little f-bomb dropping hell raisers. I can totally see it. #Quote by Mariana Zapata
Moment Of Truth quotes by Michel Foucault
#83. We are obliged to produce the truth by the power that demands truth and needs it in order to function: we are constrained, we are condemned to admit the truth or to discover it. Power constantly asks questions and questions us; it constantly investigates and records; it institutionalizes the search for the truth, professionalizes it, and rewards it ... In a different sense, we are also subject to the truth in the sense that truth lays down the law: it is the discourse of truth that decides, at least in part; it conveys and propels effects of power. #Quote by Michel Foucault
Moment Of Truth quotes by Thubten Zopa Rinpoche
#84. When there is hallucination, there is the truth, by recognising it as hallucination. Where there is suffering, there is peace and bliss, by letting go and experiencing it for numberless suffering sentient beings. Always think of how others are kind and precious Treat them as you would like to be treated. #Quote by Thubten Zopa Rinpoche
Moment Of Truth quotes by John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton
#85. The object of civil society is justice, not truth, virtue, wealth, knowledge, glory or power. Justice is followed by equality and liberty. #Quote by John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton
Moment Of Truth quotes by Tamara Rendell
#86. Dreams are like the old stories where wolves are seekers always running, and women carry fire in their bare hands and light the dark paths before them.
Old stories hold that the birds will fly all the miles of the world to tell your secrets to the rising moon, and men will walk over oceans of ice to find one truth. #Quote by Tamara Rendell
Moment Of Truth quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#87. Human Reason cannot be reduced to the result of evolutionary adaptation; art is not just a heightened procedure of providing sensual pleasures, but a medium of Truth; #Quote by Slavoj Zizek
Moment Of Truth quotes by Orson Scott Card
#88. What are you reading?" Polonius asked.
"Words, words, words," said Hamlet.
"And what's the subject?"
"Lesser than the king, but still not nothing."
It took Polonius a moment to realize he had answered another meaning of 'subject.' "I mean what do you read about?"
"All in a line, back and forth." said Hamlet. "I go from left to right with my mind full, and then must drop it there and head back empty-headed to the left side again, and take up another load to carry forward. It's a most tedious job, and when I'm done, there are all the letters where I found them, unchanged despite my having carried them all into my head. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
