Natural Ability quotes by Diodorus Siculus
#1. Physically the Celts are terrifying in appearance, with deep sounding and very harsh voices. In conversation they use few words and speak in riddles, for the most part hinting at things and leaving a great deal to be understood. They frequently exaggerate with the aim of extolling themselves and diminishing the status of others. They are boasters and threateners and given to bombastic self-dramatization, and yet they are quick of mind and with good natural ability for learning. #Quote by Diodorus Siculus
Natural Ability quotes by Damian Woetzel
#2. I guess I was phenomenally lucky that I was introduced to dancing because I'm suited to it. It would be very weird if you had this natural ability for something and you never discovered it. It must happen all the time. #Quote by Damian Woetzel
Natural Ability quotes by Jacques Barzun
#3. We may complain and cavil at the anarchy which is the amateurs natural element, but in soberness we must agree that if the amateur did not exist it would be necessary to invent him. #Quote by Jacques Barzun
Natural Ability quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#4. No matter how potent your talents are, they remain to be out of use until you take time to develop them to their optimum level. This calls for preparation. Through preparation, personal branding, consistent exposure and productive connections, you set up a condition for your dreams to flourish and bear fruits! #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Natural Ability quotes by Brendan Kennelly
#5. Poetry is, above all, a singing art of natural and magical connection because, though it is born out of one's person's solitude, it has the ability to reach out and touch in a humane and warmly illuminating way the solitude, even the loneliness, of others. That is why, to me, poetry is one of the most vital treasures that humanity possesses; it is a bridge between separated souls. #Quote by Brendan Kennelly
Natural Ability quotes by Zig Ziglar
#6. Success is the maximum utilization of the ability that you have. #Quote by Zig Ziglar
Natural Ability quotes by Judith-Victoria Douglas
#7. It's hard to learn to listen to your instincts. It's easier for some who have a natural ability to follow that little voice inside, but for others it takes practice. #Quote by Judith-Victoria Douglas
Natural Ability quotes by Miyamoto Musashi
#8. Even if a man has no natural ability, he can be a warrior. #Quote by Miyamoto Musashi
Natural Ability quotes by Fran Lebowitz
#9. Most writers write too much. I have the exact opposite problem. I feel I could write almost anything in a paragraph. I have a natural ability to condense, and so I often think, "Are you kidding me? Five thousand words? How am I gonna make 5,000 words out of that?" #Quote by Fran Lebowitz
Natural Ability quotes by John C. Maxwell
#10. Talent is a gift, but our character is a choice. Talent is natural ability, our gift from God, but we have the power to determine our character. That power rests on a foundation consisting of the choices we make in life. And those choices almost always dictate the amount of trust others have in us, and to what level of leadership we rise. #Quote by John C. Maxwell
Natural Ability quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#11. Overcoming all obstacles improves us, develops our natural ability and makes us stronger #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Natural Ability quotes by Eve Arnold
#12. I never knew anyone who came close to Marilyn in natural ability to use both photographer and still camera. She was
special in this, and for me there has been no one like her before or after. She has remained the measuring rod by which I have - unconsciously - judged
other subjects. #Quote by Eve Arnold
Natural Ability quotes by Ben Foster
#13. The heat around young actors burns out. Natural ability and magnetism only get you so far. The rest is hard work. #Quote by Ben Foster
Natural Ability quotes by Augustus Hopkins Strong
#14. In opposition to the plenary ability taught by the Pelagians, the gracious ability of the Arminians, and the natural ability of the New School theologians, the Scriptures declare the total inability of the sinner to turn himself to God or to do that which is truly good in God's sight #Quote by Augustus Hopkins Strong
Natural Ability quotes by Arthur Tress
#15. My urge to photograph is activated by an almost biological instinct for preservation from disorder. The camera is a mechanical apparatus that extends my natural ability and desire for meaningful organization. I need it to survive. #Quote by Arthur Tress
Natural Ability quotes by Sam Walker
#16. It should come as no surprise that Berra, or any athlete who makes it to the highest levels of sports, was unusually determined. But the brand of perseverance Berra, Shelford, Puyol, and the other Tier One captains showed is peculiar, even among the elite. The main point of difference is that their natural ability seemed to bear no relation to the size of their accomplishments. Something enabled them to set aside their limitations and tune out the skepticism from their critics. But what was it? What allows some people to press on until they achieve mastery? - #Quote by Sam Walker
Natural Ability quotes by San Juan De La Cruz
#17. 14. I say this in order to make it clear that the one who would go to God relying on natural ability and reasoning will not be very spiritual. There are some who think that by pure force and the activity of the senses, which of itself is lowly and no more than natural, they can reach the strength and height of the supernatural spirit. One does not attain to this peak without surpassing and leaving aside the activity of the senses. #Quote by San Juan De La Cruz
Natural Ability quotes by Ken Goldstein
#18. Real talent harnesses what it has and unlocks what it doesn't. There is natural ability, there is the discipline that develops natural ability, there is the unending study of one's craft, and there is the exponential lifting of performance by the selfless combination of efforts. #Quote by Ken Goldstein
Natural Ability quotes by Ted Williams
#19. People always told me that my natural ability and good eyesight were the reasons for my success as a hitter. They never talk about the practice, practice, practice. #Quote by Ted Williams
Natural Ability quotes by Robert E. Wells
#20. At times we are thrown suddenly into positions that seem too big for us and for which we have little preparation. The Lord stimulates our growth this way ... The Lord blesses us far beyond our natural ability and experience. However, it has been my experience that he expects us to quickly exert ourselves and acquire the things we need. He gives us a little time to improve our management skills and detailed knowledge so that we don't have to rely upon him for everything. We'll always need inspiration in these areas we couldn't possibly understand without his help. #Quote by Robert E. Wells
Natural Ability quotes by Wynton Marsalis
#21. Grace Kelly plays with intelligence, wit and feeling. She has a great amount of natural ability and the ability to adapt. That is the hallmark of a first-class jazz musician. #Quote by Wynton Marsalis
Natural Ability quotes by Pat Metheny
#22. There are some musicians who are talented and see themselves as some kind of natural geniuses or something because of a certain amount of natural ability. But that is often rarely the case over the long term. #Quote by Pat Metheny
Natural Ability quotes by Stephen Covey
#23. Real excellence does not come cheaply. A certain price must be paid in terms of practice, patience, and persistence - natural ability notwithstanding. #Quote by Stephen Covey
Natural Ability quotes by Mark Sanchez
#24. I think I have a natural ability to lead. #Quote by Mark Sanchez
Natural Ability quotes by Dennis Hastert
#25. Wrestling is a one-on-one experience and if something goes wrong you can't point a finger and blame somebody else. What you do is up to you. And yet it's a team sport, because whether your team wins or loses is a result of the cumulative effect of the matches. Wrestling is a great confidence builder because it's not all about strength. You have to use your balance and skill and technique and if you do, you can overcome a lot of muscle and bulk guys, and even those who have natural ability. Basically, you can out-technique an opponent. #Quote by Dennis Hastert
Natural Ability quotes by Jim Brown
#26. There were a lot of running backs as good as me. The real difference was that I could focus. I never laid back and relied on natural ability. #Quote by Jim Brown
Natural Ability quotes by Ezekiel Hopkins
#27. It is impossible for men by their own strength and natural ability to become Christians, but it is possible for God to make them Christians. #Quote by Ezekiel Hopkins
Natural Ability quotes by Amanda Dubin
#28. The human brain has a natural ability, inherent in its mechanism, to work on many levels, in a process of constant promptings, in a type of self-preservation.
If only humans understood ...
Most ignore it. #Quote by Amanda Dubin
Natural Ability quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#29. Natural ability without education has more often raised a man to glory and virtue than education without natural ability. #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Natural Ability quotes by Leon Uris
#30. English of course is your major tool, but it is not nearly so important as other aspects of writing for example you have to have some natural ability you can't buy it no one puts it there you're born with it. #Quote by Leon Uris
Natural Ability quotes by Raquel Cepeda
#31. More than anything, this place feels familiar. I bury my hands in the hot sand and think about the embodiment of memory or, more specifically, our natural ability to carry the past in our bodies and minds. Individually, every grain of sand brushing against my hands represents a story, an experience, and a block for me to build upon for the next generation. I quietly thank this ancestor of mine for surviving the trip so that I could one day return. #Quote by Raquel Cepeda
Natural Ability quotes by Doreen Virtue
#32. I believe that my parents helped me to keep my natural psychic abilities open. I think most kids see angels or fairies, and because my parents were such open people, I kept that alive. #Quote by Doreen Virtue
Natural Ability quotes by Thomas Aquinas
#33. The emotion of love is an affective emotion, directly reacting to goodness, rather than an aggressive one, reacting to challenge. Not only our so-called natural ability to grow and propagate exemplify natural love, but every faculty has a built-in affinity for what accords with its nature. By passion we mean some result of being acted on: either a form induced by the agent (like weight) or a movement consequent on the form (like falling to the ground). Whatever we desire acts on us in this way, first arousing an emotional attachment to itself and making itself agreeable, and then drawing us to seek it. The first change the object produces in our appetite is a feeling of its agreeableness: we call this love (weight can be thought of as a sort of natural love); then desire moves us to seek the object and pleasure comes to rest in it. Clearly then, as a change induced in us by an agent, love is a passion: the affective emotion strictly so, the will to love by stretching of the term. Love unites by making what is loved as agreeable to the lover as if it were himself or a part of himself. Though love is not itself a movement of the appetite towards an object, it is a change the appetite undergoes rendering an object agreeable. Favour is a freely chosen and willing love, open only to reasoning creatures; and charity―literally, holding dear―is a perfect form of love in which what is loved is highly prized. To love, as Aristotle says, is to want someone's good; so its object is twofo #Quote by Thomas Aquinas
Natural Ability quotes by Lori E. Woodland
#34. I soon came to know that when we align our will with the Lord's, nothing is impossible. I learned that through the enabling power of the atonement of our Savior, Jesus Christ, I could do things beyond my own natural ability. #Quote by Lori E. Woodland
Natural Ability quotes by Miyamoto Musashi
#35. It is said the warrior's is the twofold Way of pen and sword, and he should have a taste for both Ways. Even if a man has no natural ability he can be a warrior by sticking assiduously to both divisions of the Way. #Quote by Miyamoto Musashi
Natural Ability quotes by James Dyson
#36. Britain's great strength is its innovative, design and engineering natural ability and we're not using it. #Quote by James Dyson
Natural Ability quotes by Sarah Shahi
#37. I had a home birth because I really believe in the body's natural ability to give birth. The medical profession has kind of warped women's minds into thinking we don't know how to birth and we need doctors and epidurals and Pitocin. #Quote by Sarah Shahi
Natural Ability quotes by Amit Ray
#38. Inside mind there are two parts: the controlling mind (ego), and the relaxed but aware mind (self). The controlling mind is the overthinking mind. It is the ego. It tries too much and has many doubts and conflicts. It overthinks and overdoes. It is full with excessive possessiveness and attachments. On the other-hand, the relaxed but aware mind has the natural ability to face and overcome the problems of life with awareness and efficiency. #Quote by Amit Ray
Natural Ability quotes by Dory Codington
#39. Simm watched the hanging with disgust. Why would the young man pretend to be a spy when he had no skills and no natural ability? As far as he could tell there had been no secret inks, no codes, and little effort to keep his movements secret. Maybe the world was better off without such fools; fledglings who fell out of the sky only to die on the ground. #Quote by Dory Codington
Natural Ability quotes by Karen Hawkins
#40. Dougal lifted his spoon and slit it into his mouth. Immediately, a frozen look came over his face.
Sophia tensed.
He removed the spoon from his mouth.
Sophia gripped her own spoon tighter.
A slow red crept up his face, his eyes watering slightly.
Ha! Mary's soup was working its magic. Pleased, Sophia pretended to eat some soup.
Dougal slapped a hand on the table.
The dishes and Sophia jumped. "What's wrong?"
He pointed to his bowl with his spoon. "That."
"The soup? Why, whatever's wrong with it?"
"Nothing.That is the best soup I've ever had."
Sophia blinked. Surely he hadn't just said-
He dipped his spoon back into his bowl and took another large bite. Though his eyes watered and his face turned a deeper red, he continued to eat, murmuring, "Excellent!" every third bite or so.
Sophia looked at her own soup, which reeked of garlic and pepper and onion. Mary had added a large amount of salt, as well. But watching MacLean eat with gusto made her question her perceptions.
What if Mary's natural ability to cook had overcome her attempts to provide an inedible meal?
Sophia dipped her spoon into herbowl and gingerly sniffed the contents, grimacing at the strong odor. Casting a puzzled look at MacLean, who was about finished with his soup, she put the spoon into her mouth.
The burning sensation of pepper mingled with the rancid taste of uncooked garlic and what could only have been salted dishwater. She j #Quote by Karen Hawkins
Natural Ability quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#41. I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Natural Ability quotes by R. Janvier Del Valle
#42. To know the rules of steel you must be a master of everything around you; you must know every law that has been created for our use. If one eventually learns to master these laws, humbly, then one can encounter what is known as a higher law, that is, transcending steel's natural ability into something supernatural. That small window of transcendence is where you find the Davinian's mastery of steel, where the ground and sky come together. That's why nothing in this earth is sharper than a Davinian blade. It's not the steel that makes the edge, but the knowledge of the supernatural. The Davinian sharpens his sword by dipping into this higher reality. #Quote by R. Janvier Del Valle
Natural Ability quotes by Ulysses S. Grant
#43. The natural disposition of most people is to clothe a commander of a large army whom they do not know, with almost superhuman abilities. A large part of the National army, for instance, and most of the press of the country, clothed General Lee with just such qualities, but I had known him personally, and knew that he was mortal; and it was just as well that I felt this. #Quote by Ulysses S. Grant
Natural Ability quotes by Robin Sacredfire
#44. Many of those who have experienced trauma in early childhood grow up to become adults with dysfunctional lives and dysfunctional relationships, never being able to solve such issues within themselves, not even with the help of the best therapists in the world, because the root cause of it has been removed by the institutions in control of mental health training programs, mainstream media and public opinion. And the root cause of all evil, including self-inflicted evil, lays on the capacity to differentiate good from evil, which has helped us survive as a society and as individuals throughout the entirety of human history and up to this day. Once you remove this natural ability from anyone's awareness, no theory, despite the amount of logic and common sense in it, will ever work. As a matter of fact, not many people know what serves their best interest, because they don't even know what is good or evil. They relativize their ignorance to justify their stupidity. And this constitutes a thicker layer on top of their innate capacity to perceive reality. Many problems, including those related to self-esteem, could easily be solved, if one was able of properly differentiating what promotes survival from what leads to death. Whenever a large group of people lacks such capacity, they are promoting a dysfunctional society by default, and in doing so, replicating the same traumas that made them themselves dysfunctional as humans. And that's how an overall mindset rooted on victimizatio #Quote by Robin Sacredfire
Natural Ability quotes by Guo Xiang
#45. If one ... struggles for what is beyond the most proper, doing not in accordance with one's natural ability, acting not with one's genuine feeling, one will surely get into trouble ... #Quote by Guo Xiang
Natural Ability quotes by Catherine Ryan Hyde
#46. Hard work can sometimes substitute for natural ability, but natural ability almost never makes up for not being willing to do the work. #Quote by Catherine Ryan Hyde
Natural Ability quotes by Mike Trout
#47. You surprise yourself on some balls off the bat. You don't think you have a chance to catch it. And then your natural ability just takes over. #Quote by Mike Trout
Natural Ability quotes by Brian Boitano
#48. Yeah, I am a little bit, and I think it is a natural progression of the sport, of going upwards in technical ability and everything like that. #Quote by Brian Boitano
Natural Ability quotes by Lawrence Hsieh
#49. Being a winner sometimes has little to do with the score. If your players seize the opportunity to be better today than they were yesterday in softball, in math, in music, in anything worth doing in life, regardless of natural ability, that will make them winners on and off the field. #Quote by Lawrence Hsieh
Natural Ability quotes by Robert Greene
#50. We feel, perhaps unconsciously, that learning from Masters and submitting to their authority is somehow an indictment of our own natural ability, Even if we have teachers in our lives, we tend not to pay full attention to their advice, often preferring to do things our own way. In fact, we come to believe that being critical of Masters or teachers is somehow a sign of our intelligence, and that being a submissive pupil is a sign of weakness. #Quote by Robert Greene
Natural Ability quotes by Ronnie Apteker
#51. No one looks for pots of gold, it just happens. Sure, some people are born with an incredible financial ability, and some people are natural salesmen, but creating a business, driving a venture, mobilizing an army, is not something you are born to do - it just happens, by accident. #Quote by Ronnie Apteker
Natural Ability quotes by Robert Carlyle
#52. I think I have a natural, if I can say that, got a kind of natural ability in comedy. #Quote by Robert Carlyle
Natural Ability quotes by Vernor Vinge
#53. But every time our ability to access information and to communicate it to others is improved, in some sense we have achieved an increase over natural intelligence. #Quote by Vernor Vinge
Natural Ability quotes by Mickey Mantle
#54. Sometimes I think if I had the same body and the same natural ability and someone else's brain, who knows how good a player I might have been. #Quote by Mickey Mantle
Natural Ability quotes by Ron Wyden
#55. Until relatively recently, law enforcement's ability to determine an individual's location and track their movements was largely limited to natural human powers of observation. #Quote by Ron Wyden
Natural Ability quotes by Walter Brueggemann
#56. Quite clearly, the one thing the dominant culture cannot tolerate or co-opt is compassion, the ability to stand in solidarity with the victims of the present order. It can manage charity and good intentions, but it has no way to resist solidarity with pain or grief. So #Quote by Walter Brueggemann
Natural Ability quotes by Charles Darwin
#57. When the views entertained in this volume on the origin of species, or when analogous views are generally admitted, we can dimly forsee that there will be a considerable revolution in natural history. #Quote by Charles Darwin
Natural Ability quotes by Mao Zedong
#58. A people's insurrection and a people's revolution are not only natural but inevitable. #Quote by Mao Zedong
Natural Ability quotes by Carl Von Clausewitz
#59. Responsibility and danger do not tend to free or stimulate the average person's mind- rather the contrary; but wherever they do liberate an individual's judgement and confidence we can be sure that we are in the presence of exceptional ability. #Quote by Carl Von Clausewitz
Natural Ability quotes by Myles Munroe
#60. Communication is the ability to ensure that people understand not only what you say but also what you mean. It is also the ability to listen to and understand others. Developing both of these aspects of communication takes a lot of time, patience, and hard work. #Quote by Myles Munroe
Natural Ability quotes by Edward O. Wilson
#61. the great majority of people worldwide remain in the thrall of tribal organized religions, led by men who claim supernatural power in order to compete for the obedience and resources of the faithful. We are addicted to tribal conflict, which is harmless and entertaining if sublimated into team sports, but deadly when expressed as real-world ethnic, religious, and ideological struggles. There are other hereditary biases. Too paralyzed with self-absorption to protect the rest of life, we continue to tear down the natural environment, our species' irreplaceable and most precious heritage. And it is still taboo to bring up population policies aiming for an optimum people density, geographic distribution, and age distribution. #Quote by Edward O. Wilson
Natural Ability quotes by John Leslie Mackie
#62. The argument from design, therefore, can be sustained only with the help of a supposedly a priori double-barrelled principle, that mental order (at least in a god) is self-explanatory, but that all material order not only is not self-explanatory, but is positively improbable and in need of further explanation...this double-barrelled principle is recognizable as the core of the cosmological argument...The argument will not take us even as far as Kant seems to allow without borrowing the a priori thesis that there is a vicious metaphysical contingency in all natural things, and, in contrast with this, the 'transcendental' concept of a god who is self-explanatory and necessarily existent. It is only with the help of these borrowings that the design argument can introduce the required asymmetry, that any natural explanation uses data which call for further explanation, but that the theistic explanation terminates the regress. Without this asymmetry, the design argument cannot show that there is any need to go beyond the sort of hypothesis that Hume foreshadowed and that Wallace and Darwin supplied... The dependence of the argument for design on the ideas that are the core of the cosmological one is greater than Kant realized. #Quote by John Leslie Mackie
Natural Ability quotes by Steve Backley
#63. It is true to say that the secret of a winning formula is the ability to accept that there is a vast area of unexploited potential beyond what you currently perceive to be your maximum. #Quote by Steve Backley
Natural Ability quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#64. The domestication (the culture) of man does not go deep
where it does go deep it at once becomes degeneration (type: the Christian). The 'savage' (or, in moral terms, the evil man) is a return to nature
and in a certain sense his recovery, his cure from 'culture'. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Natural Ability quotes by Kristen Ashley
#65. Being on the moon is about harnessing science and technology. Waveless waterbeds are about harnessing nature and that, by definition, is not natural," I shot back.
"Babe, you're not lyin' on a miracle," he said through a lip twitch.
"No, I'm lying under one. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Natural Ability quotes by Dean Koontz
#66. Pure, hard-core liberals believe in a superior race. They think they're it. They believe they're more intelligent than the general run of mankind, better suited than the little people are to manage the little people's lives. They think they have the one true vision, the ability to solve all the moral dilemmas of the century. They prefer big government because that is the first step to totalitarianism, toward unquestioned rule by the elite. And of course they see themselves as the elite. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Natural Ability quotes by Poul Anderson
#67. He had seen too much of the cosmos to have any great faith in man's ability to understand it. #Quote by Poul Anderson
Natural Ability quotes by Carl Sagan
#68. When it gets complicated, that's usually because the world is complicated - or because we're complicated. When we shy away from it because it seems too difficult (or because we've been taught so poorly), we surrender the ability to take charge of our future. We are disenfranchised. Our self-confidence erodes. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Natural Ability quotes by Patrick Lencioni
#69. Teams that commit to decisions and standards do so because they know how to embrace two separate but related concepts: buy-in and clarity. Buy-in is the achievement of honest emotional support. Clarity is the removal of assumptions and ambiguity from a situation. Commitment is about a group of intelligent, driven individuals buying in to a decision precisely when they don't naturally agree. In other words, it's the ability to defy a lack of consensus. #Quote by Patrick Lencioni
Natural Ability quotes by Dave Cullen
#70. The problem, as Eric saw it, was natural selection. He had alluded to the concept on his Web site; here he explained - relentlessly. Natural selection had failed. Man had intervened. Medicines, vaccines, and special ed programs had conspired to keep the rejects in the human herd. So Eric was surrounded by inferiors - who would not shut their freaking mouths! How could he tolerate all the miserable chatter? #Quote by Dave Cullen
Natural Ability quotes by Hanya Yanagihara
#71. ... for his ability to make you see the world anew. #Quote by Hanya Yanagihara
Natural Ability quotes by Thomas Metzinger
#72. Subjectivity is an ability, the capacity to use a new inner mode of presenting the fact that you currently know something to yourself. #Quote by Thomas Metzinger
Natural Ability quotes by John J. Ratey
#73. Students would be assessed on effort rather than skill. You didn't have to be a natural athlete to do well in gym. #Quote by John J. Ratey
Natural Ability quotes by Farnoosh Brock
#74. Weight Loss Versus Health Gain:
"Forget the idea of 'losing' anything. Let that happen organically. Instead, focus only on adding the healthy habit of juicing into your system. Think only about the healthy changes you are integrating into your body and not so much about taking anything away. Now, this is more empowering position in which you put yourself. You are in charge of the adding, but you have no control of the subtracting. Let the weight loss be a natural result of the changes that you make and think in terms of adding health into your system instead. Juicing is one such addition. #Quote by Farnoosh Brock
Natural Ability quotes by Tony Gwynn
#75. I think the ability to hit - some guys have it and some guys don't - but I think how dedicated you are to trying to get the most out of yourself, I think kind of determines how good you are and for how long. I was born with the ability to hit, but my work ethic has taken it to the next level. #Quote by Tony Gwynn
Natural Ability quotes by Francis Chan
#76. I could fill my whole time doing interviews, speaking to crowds, and there's this natural human tendency because of our culture to think that the more people I talk to, the bigger the impact I'll have, and yet Jesus didn't spend His time just speaking to the masses. He spent the bulk of his time with a small group of people. #Quote by Francis Chan
Natural Ability quotes by Matthew Gregory Lewis
#77. With what delight did Ambrosio listen to the declaration of her artless gratitude! The natural grace of her manners, the unequalled sweetness of her voice, her modest vivacity, her unstudied elegance, her expressive countenance, and intelligent eyes united to inspire him with pleasure and admiration: While the solidity and correctness of her remarks received additional beauty from the unaffected simplicity of the language, in which they were conveyed. #Quote by Matthew Gregory Lewis
Natural Ability quotes by Ernest Becker
#78. In man a working level of narcissism is inseparable from self-esteem, from a basic sense of self-worth. We have learned, mostly from Alfred Adler, that what man needs most is to feel secure in his self-esteem. But man is not just a blind glob of idling protoplasm, but a creature with a name who lives in a world of symbols, on an abstract idea of his own worth, an idea composed of sounds, words, and images, in the air, in the mind, on paper. And this means that man's natural yearning for organismic activity, the pleasures of incorporation and expansion, can be fed limitlessly in the domain of symbols and so into immortality. The single organism can expand into dimensions of worlds and times without moving a physical limb; it can take eternity into itself even as it gaspingly dies. #Quote by Ernest Becker
Natural Ability quotes by Dan Miller
#79. Your security is determined by your ability to define what it is you do that has value. The clearer you can be on what it is you do well and what provides value for someone else, the more security you have. #Quote by Dan Miller
Natural Ability quotes by Patrice O'Neal
#80. Not everybody should be laughing at everything at the same time. That's not even natural. My thing is to feel natural, because I don't want to feel like I could just make people laugh at every single joke, every single time, with the same decibel level. #Quote by Patrice O'Neal
Natural Ability quotes by Michael Pollan
#81. Ecology also teaches that all life on earth can be viewed as a competition among species for the solar energy captured by green plants and stored in the form of complex carbon molecules. A food chain is a system for passing those calories on to species that lack the pant's unique ability to synthesize them from sunlight. #Quote by Michael Pollan
Natural Ability quotes by Carl Sagan
#82. A multitude of aspects of the natural world that were considered miraculous only a few generations ago are now thoroughly understood in terms of physics and chemistry. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Natural Ability quotes by Lee Strobel
#83. If God so precisely and carefully and lovingly and amazingly constructed a mind-boggling habitat for his creatures, then it would be natural for Him to want them to explore it, to measure it, to investigate it, to appreciate it, to be inspired by it - and ultimately, and most importantly, to find Him through it. #Quote by Lee Strobel
Natural Ability quotes by Michael Robotham
#84. People who lose children have their hearts warped into weird shapes. Some try to deny it has happened. Some pretend it hasn't. Losing friends or parents is not the same. To lose a child is beyond comprehension. It defies biology. It contradicts the natural order of history and genealogy. It derails common sense. It violates time. It creates a huge, black, bottomless hole that swallows all hope. #Quote by Michael Robotham
Natural Ability quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#85. It is quite natural, then, that the solidly unionized professional paraphrast experiences a surge of dull hatred and fear, and in some cases real panic, when confronted with the possibility that a shift in fashion, or the influence of an adventurous publishing house, may suddenly remove from his head the cryptic rosebush he carries or the maculated shield erected between him and the specter of inexorable knowledge. As a result the canned music of rhymed versions is enthusiastically advertised, and accepted, and the sacrifice of textual precision applauded as something rather heroic, whereas only suspicion and bloodhounds await the gaunt, graceless literalist groping around in despair for the obscure word that would satisfy impassioned fidelity and accumulating in the process a wealth of information which only makes the advocates of pretty camouflage tremble or sneer. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Natural Ability quotes by Pablo Neruda
#86. Naked you are blue like the night in Cuba,
you have vines and stars in your hair, #Quote by Pablo Neruda
Natural Ability quotes by Gore Vidal
#87. A writer represents his family history. My grandfather was a senator and my father served in the Roosevelt administration. In other words, I grew up in politics. This is why it seemed perfectly natural to take part in the battles of my time, and to participate in the writing of the history of my country. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Natural Ability quotes by George W. Bush
#88. One reason I like to highlight reading is, reading is the beginnings of the ability to be a good student. And if you cant read, its going to be hard to realize dreams; its going to be hard to go to college. So when your teachers say, read-you ought to listen to her. #Quote by George W. Bush
Natural Ability quotes by Jayde Scott

Natural Ability quotes by John Piper
#90. The wonder of marriage is woven into the wonder of the gospel of the cross of Christ, and the message of the cross is foolishness to the natural man, and so the meaning of marriage is foolishness to the natural man. #Quote by John Piper
Natural Ability quotes by Stephen King
#91. Storytelling is as natural as breathing; plotting is the literary version of artificial respiration. #Quote by Stephen King
Natural Ability quotes by Sanchita Pandey
#92. Happiness is your inherent nature. In the hustle and bustle of life, you have forgotten a part of yourself, and looking for it outside. Fill this void with happiness that is sustainable, not transitory; that illuminates your life and that of others, that is life giving and so natural. #Quote by Sanchita Pandey
Natural Ability quotes by Frederic Bastiat
#93. Which countries contain the most peaceful, the most moral, and the happiest people? Those people are found in the countries where the law least interferes with private affairs; where government is least felt; where the individual has the greatest scope, and free opinion the greatest influence; where administrative powers are fewest and simplest; where taxes are lightest and most nearly equal, and popular discontent the least excited and the least justifiable; where individuals and groups most actively assume their responsibilities, and, consequently, where the morals of admittedly imperfect human beings are constantly improving; where trade, assemblies, and associations are the least restricted; where labor, capital, and populations suffer the fewest forced displacements; where mankind most nearly follows its own natural inclinations; where the inventions of men are most nearly in harmony with the laws of God; in short, the happiest, most moral, and most peaceful people are those who most nearly follow this principle: Although mankind is not perfect, still, all hope rests upon the free and voluntary actions of persons within the limits of right; law or force is to be used for nothing except the administration of universal justice. #Quote by Frederic Bastiat
Natural Ability quotes by Najwa Zebian
#94. Take responsibility.
Just as you can't deny that you can feel love and hate, happiness and sadness, anger and ease of mind, or tiredness and relaxation, you can't deny that you have a fate that, sometimes, you can't control. That doesn't mean that it takes control over you. You can't deny that you have words that need to be spoken. You can't deny that you have a choice. You can't deny the ability that you can say no. You can't deny the ability that you have the freedom to make a decision and defend it. You can't deny injustice when you see it, unfairness when you feel it, oppression when you witness it. Stop blaming the world around you for wronging you. Take responsibility for the nos you could have said but chose not to, the words you could have said but didn't, instead wrapping your mouth with your own hands and remaining silent against what needed to be addressed. Take responsibility for the choices you could have made but restrained yourself from making. #Quote by Najwa Zebian
Natural Ability quotes by Gifford Pinchot
#95. Without natural resources life itself is impossible. From birth to death, natural resources, transformed for human use, feed, clothe, shelter, and transport us. Upon them we depend for every material necessity, comfort, convenience, and protection in our lives. Without abundant resources prosperity is out of reach. #Quote by Gifford Pinchot
Natural Ability quotes by Andrew Dalby
#96. Words for completely novel concepts and technical breakthroughs are devised as soon as needed, explained with ease and absorbed with scarcely an effort by all who need them. This ability to innovate in language is crucial to every scientific advance, to our intellectual curiosity, to our originality as human individuals, because it is crucial to our ability to communicate new ideas and discoveries. #Quote by Andrew Dalby
Natural Ability quotes by Norman Cousins
#97. The greatest force in the human body is the natural drive of the body to heal itself - but that force in not independent of the belief system. Everything begins with belief. What we believe is the most powerful option of all. #Quote by Norman Cousins
Natural Ability quotes by Marsha Mehran
#98. It is the pomegranate that gives 'fesenjoon' its healing capabilities. The original apple of sin, the fruit of a long gone Eden, the pomegranate shields itself in a leathery crimson shell, which in Roman times was used as a form of protective hide. Once the pomegranate's bitter skin is peeled back, though, a juicy garnet flesh is revealed to the lucky eater, popping and bursting in the mouth like the final succumber of lovemaking.
Long ago, when the earth remained still, content with the fecundity of perpetual spring, and Demeter was the mother of all that was natural and flowering, it was this tempting fruit that finally set the seasons spinning. Having eaten six pomegranate seeds in the underworld, Persephone, the Goddess of Spring's high-spirited daughter, had been forced to spend six months of the year in the eternal halls of death. Without her beautiful daughter by her side, a mournful Demeter retreated to the dark corners of the universe, allowing for the icy gates of winter to finally creak open. A round crimson herald of frost, the pomegranate comes to harvest in October and November, so 'fesenjoon' is best made with its concentrate during other times of the year. #Quote by Marsha Mehran
Natural Ability quotes by Kerri Maniscalco
#99. I laid facts out for you, Miss Wadsworth. You assumed I meant lover. You assumed he was untrustworthy, simply because of our professions. Your prejudice interfered with your ability to inquire further, to ask more specific questions, to separate fact from the fiction of your mind. You had the opportunity to clear everything up; I would not have lied to you. That was a choice you made, and did I benefit from it? Of course I did. I make no denial of the fact I've used this method on people before, and I will most certainly do so in the future. If you're angry with anyone, it ought to be yourself as well. You created an illusion of the truth you wanted to see. #Quote by Kerri Maniscalco
Natural Ability quotes by Russell Kirk
#100. The true natural rights of men, then, are equal justice, security of labor and property, the amenities of civilized institutions, and the benefits of orderly society. #Quote by Russell Kirk
Natural Ability quotes by Clifton Fadiman
#101. What is a sense of humor? Surely not the ability to understand a joke. It comes rather from a residing feeling of one's own absurdity. It is the ability to understand a joke, and that the joke is on oneself. #Quote by Clifton Fadiman
