Normal quotes by Dave Ramsey
#1. 70% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. Seven out of ten people you walk past going down the sidewalk are broke. You can model your life after them, and you will be one of them. Or you can mode your life after the weird people. Because wealth is unusual. It's not normal. So you have to engage in unusual behaviors and habits to create unusual results #Quote by Dave Ramsey
Normal quotes by Michael Crichton
#2. She had been living like a hermit herself, in a cramped, seedy apartment in Somerville, spending long hours in the lab. All-nighters had become a regular thing. She didn't have any close friends, didn't go out on dates, didn't even go to the movies by herself. She had sacrificed a normal life in order to get a PhD, and become a scientist. #Quote by Michael Crichton
Normal quotes by Ann Coulter
#3. It is an article of faith with the Democrats that they must fool Americans by simulating agreement with normal people. The winner of the Democratic primary is always the candidate who does the best impersonation of an American. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Normal quotes by Javier Marias
#4. We live, I suppose, in the unconfessed hope that the rules will at some point be broken, along with the normal course of things and custom and history, and that this will happen to us, that we will experience it, that we - that is, I alone - will be the ones to see it. We always aspire, I suppose, to being the chosen ones, and it is unlikely otherwise that we would be prepared to live out the entire course of an entire life, which, however short or long, gradually gets the better of us. #Quote by Javier Marias
Normal quotes by Natalie Maines
#5. I would feel like my life was a success if my children grow into well-adjusted, happy, functioning members of society. Capable and happy and normal. #Quote by Natalie Maines
Normal quotes by Octavia E. Butler
#6. My relative examined you, observed a few of your normal body cells, compared them with what it had learned from other humans most like you, and said that you had not only a cancer, but a talent for cancer. #Quote by Octavia E. Butler
Normal quotes by Marty Rubin
#7. Normal isn't normal, it's just what you're used to. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Normal quotes by Allen Ginsberg
#8. Marijuana is a useful catalyst for specific optical and aural aesthetic perceptions. I apprehended the structure of certain pieces of jazz and classical music in a new manner under the influence of marijuana, and these apprehensions have remained valid in years of normal consciousness. #Quote by Allen Ginsberg
Normal quotes by Christopher Titus
#9. Screwed-up people settle fights through violence. Screwed-up people start wars that could kill millions. Normal people settle fights through cookies, cakes, and pies. Normal people are fat. #Quote by Christopher Titus
Normal quotes by Shadowstorm Norwicca
#10. People ask why are you so strange and I always reply why are you so normal ... #Quote by Shadowstorm Norwicca
Normal quotes by Anthony Powell
#11. Would it be too explicit, too exaggerated, to say that when I set eyes on Isobel Tolland, I knew at once that I should marry her? Something like that is the truth; certainly nearer the truth than merely to record those vague, inchoate sentiments of interest of which I was so immediately conscious. It was as if I had known her for many years already; enjoyed happiness with her and suffered sadness. I was conscious of that, as of another life, nostalgically remembered. Then, at that moment, to be compelled to go through all the paraphernalia of introduction, of 'getting to know' one another by means of the normal formalities of social life, seemed hardly worth while. We knew one another already; the future was determinate. #Quote by Anthony Powell
Normal quotes by Ai Yazawa
#12. I want to protect my own happiness. I'm not an angel. I'm just a normal girl. #Quote by Ai Yazawa
Normal quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#13. I had a briefcase at one point, but it was a kind of 1980s New Wave briefcase. It was made of some kind of cardboard and it had metal hinges. It was kind of faux industrial looking, and I used to carry my books in it rather than a backpack. I didn't want to have normal student accoutrements. #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
Normal quotes by Frederick Lenz
#14. We call someone a saint in a world in which everyone is abnormal. The normal person becomes extraordinary. But there's nothing extraordinary about being a saint, that's just someone who's somewhat online with life. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Normal quotes by Melissa Palmer
#15. Nobody says when they're little, "Hey you know what, I think I'd like to be a basket case when I get older." Nobody sits down as a kid and hopes they can grow up to be a bitter, fall-down drunk or an agoraphobic doormat when they grow up. Everyone wants to be normal. But sometimes we don't have a choice. #Quote by Melissa Palmer
Normal quotes by Franco Bifo Berardi
#16. When dealing with a depression the problem is not to bring the depressed person back to his/her normality, to reintegrate behavior in the universal standards of normal social language. The goal is to change the focus of his/her depressive attention, to re-focalize, to deterritorialize the mind and the flow of expression. Depression is based on the stiffening of existential refrain, on the obsessive repetition of the stiffened refrain. The depressed person is unable to go out, to leave the repetitive refrain and s/he goes and goes again in the labyrinth. The goal of the schizoanalyst is to give him/her the possibility to see other landscapes, and to change the focus, to open some new ways of imagination. #Quote by Franco Bifo Berardi
Normal quotes by J.R. Ward
#17. -BDB on the board-
VAMPIRES WITH ONE EYEBROW ARE SEXY
May 8, 2006
Vishous (Back in the Pit, posting in Rhage's room on the board)
Hi! My name is Rhage.....:)
I'm starting a new trend in facial hair.
Having one eyebrow is COOL.
Having one eyebrow is SEXY.
Having one eyebrow is very INTELLECTUAL.
Come. Join me.

Rhage: (In his bedroom) 1. He immobilized me, the motherfucker. Or I woud have gone to work on the goatee. AND IF HE WERE SO TOUGH HE WOULDN'T HAVE HAD TO PUT A WHAMMY ON MY ASS TO GET AT ME.
2. My hair grows back VERY fast. I should be BACK TO NORMAL in a couple of days.
3. Even if it takes me the rest of this month...he has SO got it coming for him.

Vishous: Rhage! What happened to your eyebrow?
Why...it's gone.
Did you slip while you were shaving?
Hey....lemme ask you something...Does your head feel off-kilter? You know, heavier on one side? #Quote by J.R. Ward
Normal quotes by Augusten Burroughs
#18. Life would be fabric-softener, tuna-salad-on-white, PTA-meeting normal. #Quote by Augusten Burroughs
Normal quotes by C. G. Jung
#19. And just as the typical neurotic is unconscious of his shadow side, so the normal individual, like the neurotic, sees his shadow in his neighbour or in the man beyond the great divide. #Quote by C. G. Jung
Normal quotes by Patrick Wilson
#20. In a normal movie, you'd never see one guy talk for an entire page, whether good or bad. #Quote by Patrick Wilson
Normal quotes by Sebastian Haffner
#21. Comradeship is part of war. Like alcohol, it is one of the great comforters and helpers for people who have to live under unbearable, inhuman conditions. It makes the intolerable tolerable. It helps us cope with filth, calamity, and death. It anaesthetizes us. It comforts us for the loss of all the amenities of civilisation. Indeed, its loss is one of its preconditions. It receives its justification from bitter necessities and terrible sacrifices. If it is separated from these, if it is exercised only for pleasure and intoxication, for its own sake, it becomes a vice. It makes no difference that it brings a certain happiness. It corrupts and depraves men like no alcohol or opium. It makes them unfit for normal, responsible civilian life. Indeed, it is at bottom, an instrument of decivilisation. The general promiscuous comradeship to which the Nazis have seduced the Germans has debased this nation as nothing else could. #Quote by Sebastian Haffner
Normal quotes by Azar Nafisi
#22. Those who are close to us, when they die, divide our world. There is the world of the living, which we finally, in one way or another, succumb to, and then there is the domain of the dead that, like an imaginary friend (or foe) or a secret concubine, constantly beckons, reminding us of our loss. What is memory but a ghost that lurks at the corners of the mind, interrupting our normal course of life, disrupting our sleep in order to remind us of some acute pain or pleasure, something silenced or ignored? We miss not only their presence, or how they felt about us, but ultimately how they allowed us to feel about ourselves or them. (prologue) #Quote by Azar Nafisi
Normal quotes by Kevin Kwan
#23. It's not normal to go into a house and see a pond in the middle of the living room full of baby sharks. It's not normal to go to someone's garage and see a private plane. #Quote by Kevin Kwan
Normal quotes by Leif Enger
#24. Let me say something about that word: miracle. For too long it's been used to characterize things or events that, though pleasant, are entirely normal. Peeping chicks at Easter time, spring generally, a clear sunrise after an overcast week
a miracle, people say, as if they've been educated from greeting cards. #Quote by Leif Enger
Normal quotes by Bob Schieffer
#25. I want to try to talk like normal people talk, not just stand there and bark at the camera. #Quote by Bob Schieffer
Normal quotes by Larissa Ione
#26. She'd read somewhere that normal, healthy men got up to twenty erections a day. Um ... yep, Ares was definitely healthy. #Quote by Larissa Ione
Normal quotes by Helen Hunt
#27. I don't wish I started later, but I was never a child star. I was in school every year and had normal friends and I loved it and here I am, so I can't say that I wish I hadn't done it. I used to say, 'No, I didn't miss any of my childhood,' but it is a very adult place to be, a movie set. Like, it's a little weird. #Quote by Helen Hunt
Normal quotes by Zooey Deschanel
#28. I always wanted to be normal. I tried really hard, but it's like I try so hard and then people still say I'm offbeat. I've learnt to accept that and take advantage of it as an actor. #Quote by Zooey Deschanel
Normal quotes by Robert M. Sapolsky
#29. Testosterone has far less to do with aggression than most assume. Within the normal range, individual differences in testosterone levels don't predict who will be aggressive. Moreover, the more an organism has been aggressive, the less testosterone is needed for further aggression. When testosterone does play a role, it's facilitatory - testosterone does not 'invent' aggression. It makes us more sensitive to triggers of aggression. Also, rising testosterone levels foster aggression only during challenges to status. Finally, crucially, the rise in testosterone during a status challenge does not necessarily increase aggression; it increases whatever is needed to maintain status. In a world in which status is awarded for the best of our behaviors, testosterone would be the most prosocial hormone in existence. #Quote by Robert M. Sapolsky
Normal quotes by Paul Scott
#30. As children we accept magic as a normal part of life. Everything seems rooted in it, everything conspires in magic terms. #Quote by Paul Scott
Normal quotes by John Pomfret
#31. But on the other hand, in the midst of the chaos, you find normal people. You find people who are willing to risk their lives to tell you what they saw, even though they have no dog in the fight. #Quote by John Pomfret
Normal quotes by Peter Voogd
#32. Normal is modern-day slavery. Don't be normal. #Quote by Peter Voogd
Normal quotes by Tina Fey
#33. Most of my work is done before we start shooting, preparation work, so my normal day begins when I start writing, it might even be the night before. #Quote by Tina Fey
Normal quotes by Dave Barry
#34. There shall be a National Anthem containing incomprehensible words and a high note that normal humans cannot hit without risk of hernia. #Quote by Dave Barry
Normal quotes by E. Lockhart
#35. Be normal, now. Right now. Because you are. Because you can be. #Quote by E. Lockhart
Normal quotes by Tom Upton
#36. Other than the voices in my head, I think I'm pretty normal. #Quote by Tom Upton
Normal quotes by William J. Clinton
#37. Throughout the Middle East, there is a great yearning for the quiet miracle of a normal life. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Normal quotes by Tony Leon
#38. The citizens have "the extraordinary and exhausting practice of sitting down to dinner at any time between 10m and 11 p.m. I found it challenging to stay animated and conversational when my normal bedtime was usually about the time that the first course was being cleared". #Quote by Tony Leon
Normal quotes by Douglas Adams
#39. 1) everything that's already in the world when you're born is just normal;
2) anything that gets invented between then and before you turn thirty is incredibly exciting and creative and with any luck you can make a career out of it;
3) anything that gets invented after you're thirty is against the natural order of things and the beginning of the end of civilization as we know it until it's been around for about ten years when it gradually turns out to be alright really. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Normal quotes by Hilary Mantel
#40. But I had to think to myself that this was normal, because that was the attitude. I was 19 when I went to see my doctor and I was told it was all in the mind.
[Author Hilary Mantel on being told her endometriosis was imagined pain, From Oct 2009 Daily Mail interview] #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Normal quotes by Kerstin Gier
#41. Passersby looked at us curiously. In the porch, Mr. Whitman held the church door open for us. "Hurry up, please," he said. "We don't want to attract attention." No, sure, there was nothing likely to attract attention in two black limousines parking in North Audley Street in broad daylight so that men in suits could carry the Lost Ark out of the trunk of one of the cars, over the sidewalk, and into the church. Although from a distance the chest carrying it could have been a small coffin . . . The thought gave me goose bumps.
"I hope at least you remembered your pistol," I whispered to Gideon.
"You have a funny idea of what goes on at a soiree," he said, in a normal tone of voice, arranging the scarf around my shoulders. "Did anyone check what's in your bag? We don't want your mobile ringing in the middle of a musical performance."
I couldn't keep from laughing at the idea, because just then my ringtone was a croaking frog. "There won't be anyone there who could call me except you," I pointed out.
"And I don't even know your number. Please may I take a look inside your bag?"
"It's called a reticule," I said, shrugging and handing him the little bag.
"Smelling salts, handkerchief, perfume, powder . . . excellent," said Gideon. "All just as it should be. Come along." He gave me the reticule back, took my hand, and led me through the church porch. Mr. Whitman bolted the door again behind us. Gideon forgot to let go of my hand once we were inside the c #Quote by Kerstin Gier
Normal quotes by Thomas Lewis
#42. A number of scientists now believe that somatic concordances like these are not just normal but necessary for mammals. The mammalian nervous system depends for its neurophysiologic stability on a system of interactive coordination, wherein steadiness comes from synchronization with nearby attachment figures. #Quote by Thomas Lewis
Normal quotes by Ellen Ullman
#43. I fear for the world the Internet is creating. Before the advent of the web, if you wanted to sustain a belief in far-fetched ideas, you had to go out into the desert, or live on a compound in the mountains, or move from one badly furnished room to another in a series of safe houses. Physical reality - the discomfort and difficulty of abandoning one's normal life - put a natural break on the formation of cults, separatist colonies, underground groups, apocalyptic churches, and extreme political parties.

But now, without leaving home, from the comfort of your easy chair, you can divorce yourself from the consensus on what constitutes "truth." Each person can live in a private thought bubble, reading only those websites that reinforce his or her desired beliefs, joining only those online groups that give sustenance when the believer's courage flags. #Quote by Ellen Ullman
Normal quotes by Gena Showalter
#44. Yep, that's me. I know. I know. You're humbled I'm here, feel like throwing rose petals at my feet, blah, blah, blah. No need, though. Just try and think of me as a normal guy
-William #Quote by Gena Showalter
Normal quotes by Bethanne Snodgrass
#45. Many people have what are called hypermobile joints, which means that there is more "play" in their range of joint motion. These women (and men) are much more susceptible to the effects of gravity and muscle-overloading imbalances than are people with tighter joint structures. Physical therapists are very familiar with this problem and know that these patients are a particular challenge. A large-breasted woman with hypermobile joints is much more likely to be symptomatic from her breast weight than is a woman with "normal" joint range of motion. #Quote by Bethanne Snodgrass
Normal quotes by Molly Harper
#46. I loved my job at the paper. I loved meeting new people every day and never knowing where I would end up. But somehow, the ever-shifting schedules of a police officer and a reporter did not equal 'family friendly.' One of us needed to take a normal job for the sake of our young daughter. #Quote by Molly Harper
Normal quotes by Lindy West
#47. This is just a wacky idea I had, but maybe it's not a coincidence that, in a country where half the population's normal reproductive functions are stigmatized, American uterus- and vagina-havers are still fighting tooth and nail to have those same reproductive systems fully covered by the health insurance that we pay for. #Quote by Lindy West
Normal quotes by Ray Winstone
#48. The other thing is that when people mention computers - and I'm pretty much the same - they find it hard to comprehend that there's a performance there. They look at it as something that's just been made by a computer but in a way the difference is that when you make a normal film - and I'm simplifying it here - you put on the make-up and you put the scenery in before you start shooting, but with this you still perform in the same way but then you put the make-up on after, along with the costumes and scenery. #Quote by Ray Winstone
Normal quotes by Brody Jenner
#49. I consider myself just as normal as anybody else. #Quote by Brody Jenner
Normal quotes by Julia Quinn
#50. Eloise," Penelope said, somewhat breathless from trying to shake off
Hyacinth.
"Penelope." But Eloise's voice sounded curious. Which did not
surprise Penelope; Eloise was no fool, and she was well aware that her
brother's normal modes of behavior did not include beatific smiles in her
direction.
"Eloise," Hyacinth said, for no reason Penelope could deduce.
"Hyacinth."
Penelope turned to her husband. "Colin."
He looked amused. "Penelope. Hyacinth."
Hyacinth grinned. "Colin." And then: "Sir Phillip."
"Ladies." Sir Phillip, it seemed, favored brevity.
"Stop!" Eloise burst out. "What is going on?"
"A recitation of our Christian names, apparently," Hyacinth said. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Normal quotes by Jen Hatmaker

Normal quotes by Judith Lewis Herman
#52. The traumatized person is often relieved simply to learn the true name of her condition. By ascertaining her diagnosis, she begins the process of mastery. No longer imprisoned in the wordlessness of the trauma, she discovers that there is a language for her experience. She discovers that she is not alone; others have suffered in similar ways. She discovers further that she is not crazy; the traumatic syndromes are normal human responses to extreme circumstances. And she discovers, finally, that she is not doomed to suffer this condition indefinitely; she can expect to recover, as others have recovered ... #Quote by Judith Lewis Herman
Normal quotes by Chloe Grace Moretz
#53. My mom was always like, "If I know that my kid is having fun, she's gonna do whatever she wants. Whether that's gymnastics, learning the car, acting or just being a normal kid, she's gonna do what makes her happy." That's how I've always lived my life. #Quote by Chloe Grace Moretz
Normal quotes by Ottessa Moshfegh
#54. I had no big plan to become a curator, no great scheme to work my way up a ladder. I was just trying to pass the time. I thought if I did normal things - held down a job, for example - I could starve off the part of me that hated everything. #Quote by Ottessa Moshfegh
Normal quotes by Kasie West
#55. My older brother, Lucas, is twenty and away at college."
"Those are pretty normal names."
"Normal?"
"No Chets or Wellingtons or anything."
He raises one eyebrow. "Do you know any Wellingtons?"
"Of course not, but you probably do."
"No, actually I don't. #Quote by Kasie West
Normal quotes by Flora Rheta Schreiber
#56. Well, it would have been easier if it were put on. But the only ruse of which I'm guilty is to have pretended for so long before coming to you that nothing was wrong. Pretending that the personalities did not exist has now caused me to lose about two days. #Quote by Flora Rheta Schreiber
Normal quotes by Sheri Fink
#57. The moral values, ethical codes and laws that guide our choices in normal times are, if anything, even more important to help us navigate the confusing and disorienting time of a disaster. #Quote by Sheri Fink
Normal quotes by Megan Amram
#58. I feel like plenty of people have normal-seeming families that, as they're growing up, feel awful. I'd rather have one that looks weird from the outside but felt really normal. #Quote by Megan Amram
Normal quotes by Bill Johnson
#59. Creativity is normal for any believer who is not influenced by anxiety. #Quote by Bill Johnson
Normal quotes by Shannon Dermott
#60. Sometimes I replay your dreams in my head to get me by"

My heart cracked. "What dreams?"

"The one where we married and had kids. I used to watch you sleep within your sleep and talk to your belly"

In the room in Fairy, I'd gone there to be with Luke knowing it wasn't real. I'd dreamed we had a normal life with kids. "What did you say?"

"I would tell our child how much I loved you both #Quote by Shannon Dermott
Normal quotes by Tom Welling
#61. I have so much chaos in my life, it's become normal. You become used to it. You have to just relax, calm down, take a deep breath and try to see how you can make things work rather than complain about how they're wrong. #Quote by Tom Welling
Normal quotes by Sally  Thorne
#62. I've got so much inside me I have no idea about. I'm like the mayor of a city I've never seen."

He smiles at my phrasing. "If you knew the kind of little miracles happening every moment you breathe in, you wouldn't be able to handle it. A valve could close and not open; an artery could split, you could die. At any moment. It's nothing but miracles inside your tiny city." He presses a kiss to my temple.

"Holy shit." I clutch at him.

"You wouldn't believe the stats on people who go to bed one night and never wake up. Normal, healthy people who aren't even old."

"Why would you tell me this? Is this what you think about?"

There's the longest pause. "I used to. Not so much anymore."

"I think I preferred it when I thought I was full of white bones and red goo. Why am I now thinking about dying tonight?"

"Now you see why I can't do small talk. #Quote by Sally Thorne
Normal quotes by Nick Lowe
#63. And then, one day, they program a new tune, and it really catches your ear, you know, because you can be doing the washing up or something, you know, in your apartment and suddenly you go, whoa, what are they playing in there? And you run to the wall, but it's finished - but the song's finished. You only heard enough of it just the pique your interest. And you never know when they're going to play it again, of course, like a normal radio station. #Quote by Nick Lowe
Normal quotes by George Orwell
#64. For the rest, she grew used to the life that she was leading - used to the enormous sleepless nights, the cold, the dirt, the boredom, and the horrible communism of the Square. After a day or two she had ceased to feel even a flicker of surprise at her situation. She had come, like everyone about her, to accept this monstrous existence almost as though it were normal. The dazed, witless feeling that she had known on the way to the hopfields had come back upon her more strongly than before. It is the common effect of sleeplessness and still more of exposure. To live continuously in the open air, never going under a roof for more than an hour or two, blurs your perceptions like a strong light glaring in your eyes or a noise drumming in your ears. You act and plan and suffer, and yet all the while it is as though everything were a little out of focus, a little unreal. The world, inner and outer, grows dimmer till it reaches almost the vagueness of a dream. #Quote by George Orwell
Normal quotes by Edward Carpenter
#65. That men of this kind despise women, though a not uncommon belief, is one which hardly appears to be justified. Indeed, though naturally not inclined to 'fall in love' in this direction, such men are by their nature drawn rather near to women, and it would seem that they often feel a singular appreciation and understanding of the emotional needs and destinies of the other sex, leading in many cases to a genuine though what is called 'Platonic' friendship. There is little doubt that they are often instinctively sought after by women, who, without suspecting the real cause, are conscious of a sympathetic chord in the homogenic which they miss in the normal man. #Quote by Edward Carpenter
Normal quotes by Carlos Castaneda
#66. What distinguishes normal people is that we share a metaphorical dagger; the concerns of our self - reflection. With this dagger, we cut ourselves and bleed; and the job of our chains of self - reflection is to give us the feeling that we are bleeding together, that we are sharing something wonderful; our humanity. But if we were to examine it, we would discover that we are bleeding alone; that we are not sharing anything; that all we are doing is toying with our manageable, unreal, man-made reflection. Sorcerers are no longer in the world of daily affairs, because they are no longer prey to their self - reflection. #Quote by Carlos Castaneda
Normal quotes by Clay Shirky
#67. Sharing thoughts and expressions and even actions with others, possibly many others, is becoming a normal opportunity, not just for professionals and experts but for anyone who wants it. This opportunity can work on scales and over duration that were previously unimaginable. Unlike personal or communal value, public value requires not just new opportunities for old motivations; it requires governance, which is to say ways of discouraging or preventing people from wrecking either the process or the product of the group. #Quote by Clay Shirky
Normal quotes by Katie Kacvinsky
#68. Sex only gets better, and we agree we'd like to practice. He tells me, speaking of practice, he can set up a training schedule. And now he rambles.
He inform me every morning will begin with some calisthenics followed by sex. Then we'll eat a breakfast rich in carbohydrates to maintain energy, followed by sex. In the evening, there'll be some warm-up stretches followed by sex. Then a cooldown followed by more sex. The ice cream, preferably chocolate. Then sleep to rest up for the morning practice.
I brush my lips across his warm shoulder. "I'm glad to see you're a normal healthy male. #Quote by Katie Kacvinsky
Normal quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#69. Their favourite phrase! From which it follows that, if society is normally organised, all crime will cease at once, since there will be nothing to protest against and all men will become righteous in one instant. Human nature is not taken into account, it is excluded, it's not supposed to exist! They don't recognise that humanity, developing by a historical living process, will become at last a normal society, but they believe that a social system that has come out of some mathematical brain is going to organise all humanity at once and make it just and sinless in an instant, quicker than any living process! That's why they instinctively dislike history, 'nothing but ugliness and stupidity in it,' and they explain it all as stupidity! That's why they so dislike the living process of life; they don't want a living soul! The living soul demands life, the soul won't obey the rules of mechanics, the soul is an object of suspicion, the soul is retrograde! But what they want though it smells of death and can be made of India-rubber, at least is not alive, has no will, is servile and won't revolt! And it comes in the end to their reducing everything to the building of walls and the planning of rooms and passages in a phalanstery! The phalanstery is ready, indeed, but your human nature is not ready for the phalanstery - it wants life, it hasn't completed its vital process, it's too soon for the graveyard! You can't skip over nature by logic. Logic presupposes three possibilities, but #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Normal quotes by Bijou Hunter
#70. They've clearly done their research on how to sell homeschooling. I don't disagree with them, though. They're weird kids, and public school will try to make them normal. I know since I was weird too. Despite the best efforts of my teachers, I remained weird yet turned out better than anyone else I knew growing up. #Quote by Bijou Hunter
Normal quotes by Kara Lindsay
#71. I thought, 'OK, Melissa Gilbert is playing my mom, and I'm playing her old role - no pressure.' So I went up to Melissa and said, 'It's such an honor playing your daughter,' and she smiled and said, 'Oh, shut up.' I thought, 'Great, a normal person.' #Quote by Kara Lindsay
Normal quotes by Greg Gutfeld
#72. It's important not just to confirm normal, commonsense assumptions, but to actually convert the uncertain. To win over those who want to be won over, and sharpen the spear of facts and puncture the flatulent balloon of sanctimonious outrage. We better find them, soon, before America turns into one giant daycare center for dipshits. #Quote by Greg Gutfeld
Normal quotes by Angelina Jolie
#73. I don't think the money people in Hollywood have ever thought I was normal, but I am dedicated to my work and that's what counts. #Quote by Angelina Jolie
Normal quotes by Gillian Flynn
#74. If you were chopping up hookers or eating runaways, you'd try to look normal. #Quote by Gillian Flynn
Normal quotes by Jaxon Reed
#75. Have you ever watched kids on a playground? There will be one kid taller than all the rest. He's out there playing, and he's the tallest one. But he doesn't know he's tall. Maybe on some level it registers with him that the other kids in his class are shorter, that he has to look down to meet their eyes when he's close to them, but he never really thinks much about it. "Later, if the difference stays and he remains taller than others, somebody will say something about his height. Maybe they'll tease him and call him a freak. Then he'll fully realize he's taller than normal. He still won't think much about it, though, until others point it out to him all the time. #Quote by Jaxon Reed
Normal quotes by Pauley Perrette
#76. My whole goal was to be able to work in television and film and maintain a normal life, never be in a tabloid. #Quote by Pauley Perrette
Normal quotes by Marie Kelly
#77. but I knew I had to do something…not only for Adam, but to help win something for Ben, to show that sometimes just sometimes normal people could get justice #Quote by Marie Kelly
Normal quotes by Jennifer Van Wyk
#78. I miss you," I say.
Her body sags against me, and tears immediately form in her eyes. She's always been an emotional sap, but I know it's more than just her normal emotions getting to her now. She feels it too. I need to do something about it, and seeing her to the point of tears breaks my heart. She should never feel that our relationship will cause her tears.
"Don't cry. Please, Tess. It breaks my heart. I can't take the tears."
"I'm sorry." She sniffles. "I can't help it. it's not just the sex. Yes, I miss it terribly, but it's you. I miss you too. We have to find a way to get back to ourselves."
"Come on now, I know it's really just my magical penis that you miss," I tease her.
She looks up at me with a watery smile and says through her chuckling, "You know it. #Quote by Jennifer Van Wyk
Normal quotes by Sam Childers
#79. I don't like to consider myself a normal preacher. When you look at religious people, they're the ones who hung Christ from the cross. I look at myself as a man carrying a message of hope. #Quote by Sam Childers
Normal quotes by Hanya Yanagihara
#80. The other aspect of those weekday-evening trips he loved was the light itself, how it filled the train like something living as the cars rattled across the bridge, how it washed the weariness from his seatmates' faces and revealed them as they were when they first came to the country, when they were young and America seemed conquerable. He'd watch that kind light suffuse the car like syrup, watch it smudge furrows from foreheads, slick gray hairs into gold, gentle the aggressive shine from cheap fabrics into something lustrous and fine. And then the sun would drift, the car rattling uncaringly away from it, and the world would return to its normal sad shapes and colors, the people to their normal sad state, a shift as cruel and abrupt as if it had been made by a sorcerer's wand. #Quote by Hanya Yanagihara
Normal quotes by Jane Jacobs
#81. Play on lively, diversified sidewalks differs from virtually all other daily incidental play offered American children today: It is play not conducted in a matriarchy.
Most city architectural designers and planners are men. Curiously, they design and plan to exclude men as part of normal, daytime life wherever people live. In planning residential life, they aim at filling the presumed daily needs of impossibly vacuous housewives and preschool tots. They plan, in short, strictly for matriarchal societies. #Quote by Jane Jacobs
Normal quotes by Val Kilmer As
#82. There's no normal life Wyatt,
It's just life.
Get on with it. #Quote by Val Kilmer As "Doc" Holliday
Normal quotes by Timbaland
#83. I try to be as normal as I can. #Quote by Timbaland
Normal quotes by Ernest Becker
#84. Therefore in normal times we move about actually without ever believing in our own death, as if we fully believed in our own corporeal immortality. We are intent on mastering death ... . A man will say, of course, that he knows he will die some day,
but he does not really care. He is having a good time with living, and he does not think about death and does not care to bother about it, but this is a purely intellectual, verbal admission. The affect of fear is repressed. #Quote by Ernest Becker
Normal quotes by Peter Coyote
#85. We spend all this energy keeping our lives normal and safe and predictable, and the result is that our approved cultural safety valve is the movies. So in films, anyway, the hero is obliged to represent the continuance of social values and institutions, and his permission to act is much more seriously limited than the villain's. #Quote by Peter Coyote
Normal quotes by Christopher Pike
#86. He shrugs as he slowly collects himself. I guess there was a part of me that kept hoping you would rise from the dead. Like a normal vampire. #Quote by Christopher Pike
Normal quotes by Jennifer Grant
#87. The process was remarkably cathartic. I'd sit and listen to my father's voice - having not heard some of these tapes for 30 years and hearing his voice laying me down for a nap, our giggles and cooking dinner - and I remembered all those wonderful days. Normal days. #Quote by Jennifer Grant
Normal quotes by Matthew S. McCormick
#88. 1. Myth: Without God, life has no meaning.

There are 1.2 billion Chinese who have no predominant religion, and 1 billion people in India who are predominantly Hindu. And 65% of Japan's 127 million people claim to be non-believers. It is laughable to suggest that none of these billions of people are leading meaningful lives.

2. Myth: Prayer works.

Studies have now shown that inter-cessionary prayer has no effect whatsoever of the health or well-being of the subject.

3. Myth: Atheists are immoral.

There are hundreds of millions of non-believers on the planet living normal, decent, moral lives. They love their children, care about others, obey laws, and try to keep from doing harm to others just like everyone else. In fact, in predominantly non-believing countries such as in northern Europe, measures of societal health such as life expectancy at birth, adult literacy, per capita income, education, homicide, suicide, gender equality, and political coercion are better than they are in believing societies.

4. Myth: Belief in God is compatible with science.

In the past, every supernatural or paranormal explanation of phenomena that humans believed turned out to be mistaken; science has always found a physical explanation that revealed that the supernatural view was a myth. Modern organisms evolved from lower life forms, they weren't created 6,000 years ago in the finished state. Fever is not caused by de #Quote by Matthew S. McCormick
Normal quotes by Ethan Embry
#89. I always play these rodent type characters - skittish and hyper like a chipmunk. It's a complete act though. I'm a very normal person. #Quote by Ethan Embry
Normal quotes by Robert Whitaker
#90. Klonopin ruined my lie. It takes away your drive, and in the morning, you don't want to get out of bed, because you feel so groggy. I don't even know what it's like to feel normal. This is my world. Things don't get me as excited as most people because I'm in a constant state of sedation. It should never have been prescribed for long-term use. #Quote by Robert Whitaker
Normal quotes by Terry Eagleton
#91. Equally serious is the complaint that psychoanalysis as a medical practice is a form of oppressive social control, labelling individuals and forcing them to conform to arbitrary definitions of 'normality'. This charge is in fact more usually aimed against psychiatric medicine as a whole: as far as Freud's own views on 'normality' are concerned, the accusation is largely misdirected. Freud's work showed, scandalously, just how 'plastic' and variable in its choice of objects libido really is, how so-called sexual perversions form part of what passes as normal sexuality, and how heterosexuality is by no means a natural or self-evident fact. It is true that Freudian psychoanalysis does usually work with some concept of a sexual 'norm'; but this is in no sense given by Nature. #Quote by Terry Eagleton
Normal quotes by Michelle Pfeiffer
#92. The whole celebrity thing never is normal and I think the fuller your life is, the more you are able to just kind of call a truce with it on a good day. #Quote by Michelle Pfeiffer
Normal quotes by Callum Roberts
#93. Early accounts of the abundance of fish and wildlife offer us a window to the past that helps reveal the magnitude of subsequent declines. They provide us with benchmarks against which we can compare the condition of today's seas. Such benchmarks are valuable in countering the phenomenon of shifting environmental baselines, whereby each generation comes to view the environment into which it was born as natural, or normal. Shifting environmental baselines cause a collective societal amnesia in which gradual deterioration of the environment and depletion of wildlife populations pass almost unnoticed. Our expectations diminish with time, and with them goes our will to do something about the losses. #Quote by Callum Roberts
Normal quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#94. Love has a way of making the sane insane and the insane normal. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Normal quotes by Susan J. Elliott
#95. All my life I had hated uncertainty and looked for someone to bring me security. All my life I had looked for someone to love me into being normal. Now I was learning that I had to make my own certainty, and discover and develop my own normalcy. #Quote by Susan J. Elliott
Normal quotes by Ariel Levy
#96. Instead of trying to reform other people's - or her own - perception of feminist, the FCP likes to position herself as something outside the normal bounds of womanhood. #Quote by Ariel Levy
Normal quotes by Harlan Ellison
#97. The only thing worth writing about is people. People. Human beings. Men and women whose individuality must be created, line by line, insight by insight. If you do not do it, the story is a failure. [ ... ] There is no nobler chore in the universe than holding up the mirror of reality and turning it slightly, so we have a new and different perception of the commonplace, the everyday, the 'normal', the obvious. People are reflected in the glass. The fantasy situation into which you thrust them is the mirror itself. And what we are shown should illuminate and alter our perception of the world around us. Failing that, you have failed totally. #Quote by Harlan Ellison
Normal quotes by Cassandra Peterson
#98. People come up to me at conventions and say, 'I was such an outcast, I felt like such a geek, and when I saw you, you made me feel like such a normal person.' It's my favorite thing to hear, because that's how I felt when I was a kid. If Goth would've been around, I would've definitely been Goth. But there wasn't such a thing, so I was just weird. #Quote by Cassandra Peterson
Normal quotes by H.L. Mencken
#99. No normal man ever fell in love after thirty when the kidneys begin to disintegrate. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Normal quotes by Brian Littrell

Normal quotes by Jason Bateman
#102. Starting at age 10, my personality and my identity all stemmed from employment. I had a set to be at. I was a certain way with the cameraman, a certain way with the makeup lady - a normal, routine environment. #Quote by Jason Bateman
Normal quotes by James Howard Kunstler
#103. The living arrangements American now think of as normal are bankrupting us economically, socially, ecologically and spiritually. #Quote by James Howard Kunstler
Normal quotes by Lynne Truss
#104. Inverted commas (or speech marks, or quotes) are sometimes used by fastidious writers as a kind of linguistic rubber glove, distancing them from vulgar words or clichés they are too refined to use in the normal way. This 'N' character in Iris Murdoch's novel evidently can't bring himself to say 'keep in touch' without sealing it hygienically within inverted commas, and doubtless additionally indicating his irony with two pairs of curled fingers held up at either side of his face. #Quote by Lynne Truss
Normal quotes by Penelope Cruz
#105. It doesn't happen every day, but many nights my dreams are like a movie. I don't see normal movement - I see things in very complicated shots. That's why I do remember many of them. #Quote by Penelope Cruz
Normal quotes by Deyth Banger
#106. Zero ground is the beginning... sometimes you just don't have the normal productivity day. #Quote by Deyth Banger
Normal quotes by Kay Redfield Jamison
#107. I compare myself with my former self, not with others. Not only that, I tend to compare my current self with the best I have been, which is when I have been midly manic. When I am my present "normal" self, I am far removed from when I have been my liveliest, most productive, most intense, most outgoing and effervescent. In sort, for myself, I am a hard act to follow. #Quote by Kay Redfield Jamison
Normal quotes by K.P. Yohannan
#108. Many of the crisis problems which are considered disasters in the United States would only be normal, everyday living conditions in most of Asia. #Quote by K.P. Yohannan
Normal quotes by Julia Cameron
#109. I think we have a great deal of mythology around writing. We believe that only a few people can really do it. I wrote a book called 'The Right to Write.' In it, I argued that all of us have the capacity to write. That it's as normal to write as it is to speak. #Quote by Julia Cameron
Normal quotes by John Piper
#110. I want you to see persecution and opposition and slander and misunderstanding and disappointment and self-recrimination and weakness and danger as the normal portion of faithful pastoral ministry. #Quote by John Piper

Normal quotes by Klaus Nomi
#112. The way I look it is hard to look like a normal person. You know, in the streets when I was a kid, people always said I looked strange, and it made me feel unhappy. #Quote by Klaus Nomi

Normal quotes by Marjorie Bard
#114. They are clean, dressed and coiffed neatly, and seem serene. They look and act like "normal" shoppers, gamblers, dawdlers, and visitors, but "they" are solo homeless women - mainly over forty years of age and surprisingly well educated - who blend into polite society. #Quote by Marjorie Bard
Normal quotes by Julie Kagawa
#115. I want her to be happy, and she's most happy with you. Maybe this will make up for ... past mistakes." He shook his head and returned to his normal idiocy.

Normal quotes by Jonathan Freedland

Normal quotes by Michael Ealy
#117. For the most part, I meet people who are like 'I really like your work. I'm watching your career. I want to see you do well. Keep doing what you do.' I get that so much, and it's so reassuring. I often wish that so many people, who just work normal jobs, could get a pat on the back as much as I do, because it's very complimentary. #Quote by Michael Ealy
Normal quotes by Kate Atkinson
#118. ... Angus had a "pretty normal childhood." Bertie had immediately mistrusted him. Nobody had a normal childhood. #Quote by Kate Atkinson
Normal quotes by Donald Miller
#119. And once you live a good story, you get a taste for a kind of meaning in life, and you can't go back to being normal; you can't go back to meaningless scenes stitched together by the forgettable thread of wasted time. #Quote by Donald Miller
Normal quotes by Thomas Kuhn
#120. The resolution of revolutions is selection by conflict within the scientific community of the fittest way to practice future science. The net result of a sequence of such revolutionary selections, separated by periods of normal research, is the wonderfully adapted set of instruments we call modern scientific knowledge. #Quote by Thomas Kuhn
Normal quotes by Philip Warren Anderson
#121. We atheists can ... argue that, with the modern revolution in attitudes toward homosexuals, we have become the only group that may not reveal itself in normal social discourse. #Quote by Philip Warren Anderson
Normal quotes by Misha Collins
#122. I want to live in a world where 'normal' is an insult. #Quote by Misha Collins
Normal quotes by Bret Easton Ellis
#123. Everything failed to subdue me. Soon everything seemed dull: another sunrise, the lives of heroes, falling in love, war, the discoveries people made about each other. The only thing that didn't bore me, obviously enough, was how much money Tim Price made, and yet in its obviousness it did. There wasn't a clear, identifiable emotion within me, except for greed and, possibly, total disgust. I had all the characteristics of a human being - flesh, blood, skin, hair - but my depersonalization was so intense, had gone so deep, that the normal ability to feel compassion had been eradicated, the victim of a slow, purposeful erasure. I was simply imitating reality, a rough resemblance of a human being, with only a dim corner of my mind functioning. Something horrible was happening and yet I couldn't figure out why - I couldn't put my finger on it. #Quote by Bret Easton Ellis
Normal quotes by John F. MacArthur Jr.
#124. For Christians, prayer is like breathing. You don't have to think to breathe because the atmosphere exerts pressure on your lungs and forces you to breathe. That's why it is more difficult to hold your breath than it is to breathe. Similarly, when you're born into the family of God, you enter into a spiritual atmosphere wherein God's presence and grace exert pressure, or influence, on your life. Prayer is the normal response to that pressure. As believers, we all have entered the divine atmosphere to breathe the air of prayer. Only then can we survive in the darkness of the world. #Quote by John F. MacArthur Jr.
Normal quotes by Rob Brezsny
#125. The average American child sees 20,000 murders in TV before reaching age 18. This is considered normal. Every community has video rental stores filled with multimillion-dollar films that depict people doing terrible things to each other. If you read newspapers, you have every right to believe that Bad Nasty Things compose 90 percent of the human experience. But you will be hard-pressed to find more than a few novels, films, news stories, and TV shows that dare to depict life as a gift whose purpose is to enrich the human soul. #Quote by Rob Brezsny
Normal quotes by Alana Blanchard
#126. It's funny because looking back at my first contest, I was 15 and surfing the Haleiwa contest wearing this tiny bikini. I remember not even thinking twice about wearing it - I just thought it was normal. #Quote by Alana Blanchard
Normal quotes by Laura Kreitzer
#127. You didn't tell Summer about it, did you?"
"What?" Gage scoffs. "Yeah, telling your girlfriend the Angel of Death might visit her if some switch is flipped is normal pillow talk. #Quote by Laura Kreitzer
Normal quotes by Iain Pears
#128. The next day was a dream of such perfection that I have never approached the like again. It was, of course, all illusion, but I like to think of it still in isolation from what came after,as a moment of bliss, one of those days when on is no longer oneself, but becomes bigger, and better, able to overcome the normal preoccupations of life and breathe more freely. #Quote by Iain Pears

Normal quotes by Scarlett Johansson
#131. I don't think there's any kind of preparation for sudden celebrity. I think you almost have this slight nervous breakdown when that kind of media attention happens. I mean, you're doing the same kind of thing that you do all the time, only you have to make these weird adjustments. Like, you're buying a slice of pizza and somebody's outside photographing you which is weird - that's not normal! It's very uncomfortable. #Quote by Scarlett Johansson
Normal quotes by John Irving
#132. ... and so he tried to accept the ache in his heart as what Dr. Larch would call the common symptoms of normal life. #Quote by John Irving
Normal quotes by Dianne Sylvan
#133. Do you think I'll ever have a real life?"
"Define real."
"You know ... a job, a family, a house, stuff like that."
"Is that what you want?"
"I don't know. I used to think the idea of normal was awful, but maybe that was just because I never thought I could have it. #Quote by Dianne Sylvan
Normal quotes by Roger Kimball
#134. The institutionalization of the Beat ethic has been a moral, aesthetic, and intellectual disaster of the first order. (It has also been a disaster for fashion and manners, but that is a separate subject.) We owe to the 1960s the ultimate institutionalization of immoralist radicalism: the institutionalization of drugs, pseudo-spirituality, promiscuous sex, virulent anti-Americanism, naive anti-capitalism, and the precipitous decline of artistic and intellectual standards. But the1960s and 1970s only codified and extended into the middle class the radical spirit of the Beats, who, in more normal times, would have remained what they were in the beginning; members of a fringe movement that provided stand-up comics with material. #Quote by Roger Kimball
Normal quotes by Leslie C. Peltier
#135. Life was never quite the same for me after that winter walk to town. The charts that I brought home with me were potent and ensnaring and I feel it my duty to warn any others who may show signs of star susceptibility that they approach the observing of variable stars with the utmost caution. It is easy to become and addict and, as usual, the longer the indulgence is continued the more difficult it becomes to go back to a normal life. #Quote by Leslie C. Peltier
Normal quotes by Meredith Wild
#136. As soon as I'd walked out of my normal working life and into the apartment we now shared, I went to war with damn near every instinct I had. I handed over all control to the man I loved, trusting that he'd take care of us both. He always did, but sometimes I couldn't resist the urge to push back just a bit, so he knew I was still there, fighting. #Quote by Meredith Wild
Normal quotes by Nnedi Okorafor
#137. No matter what choice I made, I was never going to have a normal life, really. I looked around and immediately knew what to do next. #Quote by Nnedi Okorafor
Normal quotes by Alys Arden
#138. A sharp pain tugged in my chest. I wanted this all to go away. I wanted Nicco to be normal. I wanted to be normal. A part of me wanted to destroy him for everything he'd done, whatever his role...For following me. For not telling me everything. For letting me fall for him. I hated myself for wanting to cause harm to someone else. I wanted him to be stronger, to change, to want the same things as me. I wanted him. #Quote by Alys Arden
Normal quotes by Josh Kilmer-Purcell
#139. Once you've crawled into what's commonly thought of as the sordid underbelly of life, you realize it's all just different versions of normal. #Quote by Josh Kilmer-Purcell

Normal quotes by Debra Anastasia
#142. I don't trust you with him," Cole continued. "I'm certain you'll ruin him. You'll want to make him be something other than what he is. He can't change, Livia. He can't be a normal husband or father - or man. He'll never hold a job. He won't provide you with a cushy house and a decent medical plan." Cole's anger was at odds with the peace of the darkened church. The wall candles flickered as if the change in energy had moved the air. #Quote by Debra Anastasia

Normal quotes by M. Starks
#148. It is the first time I realize just how much this has taken a toll on my parents. Not the toll of recovering from cancer, or worrying about the bills. The toll paid with fear. A way of life altered completely. Our lives are now on display for those in the community to judge.

I imagine there is a before and after for my parents as well. Before the girls went missing and our lives were normal. After one of the kids is found and the other isn't. #Quote by M. Starks
Normal quotes by Alan Moore
#149. I found it very difficult to feel easy around the guy, even once I'd got used to the shock of his presence. It's a strange feeling ... the first time you meet him your brain wants to scream, blow a fuse and shut itself down immediately, refusing to accept that he exists. This lasts for a couple of minutes, at which time he's still there and hasn't gone away, and in the end you just accept him because he's standing there and talking to you and after a while it almost seems normal. Almost. #Quote by Alan Moore
Normal quotes by W. H. Auden
#150. There's only one good test of pornography. Get twelve normal men to read the book, and then ask them, 'Did you get an erection?' If the answer is 'Yes' from a majority of the twelve, then the book is pornographic. #Quote by W. H. Auden

Normal quotes by Mildred Cable
#152. In the desert the detachment of life from all normal intercourse imparts a sense of gravity to every rencontre, and each touch with human beings is fraught with a significance lacking in the too hurried intercourse of ordinary everyday life. On the desert track, there is no such thing as a casual meeting ... #Quote by Mildred Cable
Normal quotes by Heather Dixon
#153. You once said you had studied at the university," said Eve shyly. "What did you stufy, please?"

"Ah," said Mr. Bradford, coloring as well. "Politics, actually. Some philosophy, and sciences. But ... mostly politics, I'm afraid. #Quote by Heather Dixon
Normal quotes by Adrian Wooldridge
#154. Peter Drucker once noted that "no institution can possibly survive if it needs geniuses or supermen to manage it. It must be organized in such a way as to be able to get along under the leadership of perfectly normal human beings." Warren Buffet made the same point more pithily: "I only invest in companies which any fool can run, because some day some fool will run it. #Quote by Adrian Wooldridge
Normal quotes by M. Ward

Normal quotes by Robin Bielman
#158. What prince wouldn't make a country girl a little restless? Those eyes, that mouth, the broad chest, were a royal combination unlike any other. He only held power over her if she let him, though. He brushed his teeth just like every other person. Put on his shoes one foot at a time.
Prince Theo was just extraordinarily normal.
And she could handle him and her story.
Probably. #Quote by Robin Bielman
Normal quotes by Brie Larson
#159. I'm sure that there's frustration that comes with wanting to just have a normal mom. But, I don't really know if they see it as any different than any other problem you might have with a parent. I think everybody can think about one thing that their parents used to do, all the time, that would embarrass you. #Quote by Brie Larson

Normal quotes by Parinita Shetty
#161. Books are similarly dangerous. The worst kind can change your life. It was a book that got me to the human world. And it is books that now keep me here. I don't know how some humans can stand to read so much. How can they bear to continue their dull, normal lives after reading such extraordinary ones? #Quote by Parinita Shetty
Normal quotes by Jacques Derrida
#162. Every sign, linguistic or nonlinguistic, spoken or written (in the usual sense of this opposition), as a small or large unity, can be cited, put between quotation marks; thereby it can break with every given context, and engender infinitely new contexts in an absolutely nonsaturable fashion. This does not suppose that the mark is valid outside its context, but on the contrary that there are only contexts without any center of absolute anchoring. This citationality, duplication, or duplicity, this iterability of the mark is not an accident or anomaly, but is that (normal/abnormal) without which a mark could no longer even have a so-called "normal" functioning. What would a mark be that one could not cite? And whose origin could not be lost on the way? #Quote by Jacques Derrida
Normal quotes by John Zakour

Normal quotes by Brian Regan

#173. Our region is going to be in chaos for a long time, ... The media's not playing it up to make it seem worse than it is. The reality is that it's as bad or worse than what you're seeing on TV. It's going to take a lot of help from a lot of people to get everybody back to living a normal life again. #Quote by David Toms

Normal quotes by Bob Goff
#176. Finally, and definitely the coolest part, is that you get a card from the State Department that gives you diplomatic immunity. I wasn't exactly sure what diplomatic immunity meant, so I asked around to see if I could kill someone. Not someone important, of course, but someone normal - like Doug. I never got a call back on the question so I'm operating under the assumption that I can. #Quote by Bob Goff
Normal quotes by Drake
#177. I have an urge to communicate. I think I'm a change from what it would be like dating a normal guy who doesn't talk too much. #Quote by Drake
Normal quotes by Zoe Marriott
#178. Aside from wanting to write cracking good books that turn children into lifelong readers, I really want to create stories that enable kids to LOOK at the world around them. To see it for what it is, with wide open, wondering eyes. Our mass media is so horribly skewed. It presents this idea of 'normalcy' which excludes and marginalises so many for an idea of commercial viability which is really nothing but blinkered prejudice. People who are black and Asian and Middle Eastern and Hispanic, people who are gay or transgendered or genderqueer, people who have disabilities, disfigurements or illnesses - all have this vision of a world which does not include them shoved down their throats almost 24-7, and they're told 'No one wants to see stories about people like you. Films and TV shows about people like you won't make money. Stories about straight, white, cisgendered, able-bodied people are universal and everyone likes them. You are small and useless and unattractive and you don't matter.'

My worry is that this warped version of 'normal' eventually forms those very same blinkers on children's eyes, depriving them of their ability to see anyone who isn't the same as them, preventing them from developing the ability to empathise with and appreciate and take joy in the lives and experiences of people who are different from them. If Shadows on the Moon - or anything I write - causes a young person to look at their own life, or the life of another, and think, 'Maybe being d #Quote by Zoe Marriott

Normal quotes by Richard Taylor
#180. Most people are, in the most ordinary sense, very limited. They pass their time, day after day, in idle, passive pursuits, just looking at things - at games, television, whatever. Or they fill the hours talking, mostly about nothing of significance - of comings and goings, of who is doing what, of the weather, of things forgotten almost as soon as they are mentioned. They have no aspirations for themselves beyond getting through another doing more or less what they did yesterday. They walk across the stage of life, leaving everything about as it was when they entered, achieving nothing, aspiring to nothing, having never a profound or even original thought... This is what is common, usual, typical, indeed normal. Relatively few rise above such a plodding existence. #Quote by Richard Taylor
Normal quotes by Yuto Tsukuda
#181. This rich pork flavor, which lands on the tongue with a thump...
It's Chinese Dongpo Pork! He seasoned pork belly with a blend of spices and let it marinate thoroughly...
... before finely dicing it and mixing it into the fried rice!"
"What? Dongpo Pork prepared this fast?! No way! He didn't have nearly enough time to simmer the pork belly!"
"Heh heh. Actually, there's a little trick to that.
I simmered it in sparkling water instead of tap water. The carbon dioxide that gives sparkling water its carbonation helps break down the fibers in meat. Using this, you can tenderize a piece of meat in less than half the normal time!"
"That isn't the only protein in this dish. I can taste the seafood from an Acqua Pazza too!"
"And these green beans... it's the Indian dish Poriyal!
Diced green beans and shredded coconut fried in oil with chilies and mustard seeds... it has a wonderfully spicy kick!"
"He also used the distinctly French Mirepoix to gently accentuate the sweetness of the vegetables.
So many different delicious flavors...
... all clashing and sparking in my mouth!
But the biggest key to this dish, and the core of its amazing deliciousness...
... is the rice!"
"Hmph. Well, of course it is. The dish is fried rice. If the rice isn't the centerpiece, it isn't a..."
"I see. His dish is fried rice while simultaneously being something other than fried rice.
A rice lightly fried in butter before being st #Quote by Yuto Tsukuda
Normal quotes by Ingrid Rojas Contreras
#182. I sat down. I cried, knowing that what I had wanted was a return to normal, but there would never be a return to normal. Papa was gone. In his place was this man whose cheekbones cut hard into his skin, whose burnt-dark color and malnutrition were still present even though he no longer lived in a jungle. This man who allowed me to hold his hand and sob onto his shoulder, even though it made him anxious to be so close, so near to anyone. I needed to learn how to live with this new man, to negotiate a relationship with his body that was not the body I knew. #Quote by Ingrid Rojas Contreras
Normal quotes by Anne Eliot
#183. Almost. Almost.
How I hate that word and the way it defines me.
Almost raped. Almost over it. Almost normal.
I can almost forget. Way worse, I can almost remember. #Quote by Anne Eliot
Normal quotes by Teju Cole
#184. Each person must, on some level, take himself as the calibration point for normalcy, must assume that the room of his own mind is not, cannot be, entirely opaque to him. #Quote by Teju Cole
Normal quotes by Sarah Prager
#185. I cannot understand those so-called 'normal' people who believe that a man should love only a woman, and a woman love only a man. If this were so, then it disregards completely the spirit, the personality, and the mind, and stresses the importance of the physical body. #Quote by Sarah Prager
Normal quotes by Jean Sasson
#186. My voice thick with frustration, I declared that if men and women could only meet each other under normal circumstances, that delusions of instant love would be more infrequent. While I do believe that great attractions lead to genuine love, such as it had with my sister, Sara, and her husband, Assad, such a happy outcome is rare. When men and women rarely have the opportunity to enjoy the other's company in ordinary social occasions, spontaneous emotions are quick to rise to the surface, often ending in terrible personal tragedies. #Quote by Jean Sasson
Normal quotes by Eva Green

Normal quotes by Murray N. Rothbard

Normal quotes by Paul Goodman
#192. I often ask, "What do you want to work at? If you have the chance. When you get out of school, college, the service, etc."

Some answer right off and tell their definite plans and projects, highly approved by Papa. I'm pleased for them* but it's a bit boring, because they are such squares.

Quite a few will, with prompting, come out with astounding stereotyped, conceited fantasies, such as becoming a movie actor when they are "discovered" "like Marlon Brando, but in my own way."

Very rarely somebody will, maybe defiantly and defensively, maybe diffidently but proudly, make you know that he knows very well what he is going to do; it is something great; and he is indeed already doing it, which is the real test.

The usual answer, perhaps the normal answer, is "I don't know," meaning, "I'm looking; I haven't found the right thing; it's discouraging but not hopeless."

But the terrible answer is, "Nothing." The young man doesn't want to do anything.

I remember talking to half a dozen young fellows at Van Wagner's Beach outside of Hamilton, Ontario; and all of them had this one thing to say: "Nothing." They didn't believe that what to work at was the kind of thing one wanted. They rather expected that two or three of them would work for the electric company in town, but they couldn't care less, I turned away from the conversation abruptly because of the uncontrollable burning tears in my eyes and constriction in m #Quote by Paul Goodman
Normal quotes by Annie Parisse
#193. You'd just be amazed what people will do. You really would. And not crazy people. Ostensibly normal people. When the right person touches the right button in someone, you can get them to do almost anything. #Quote by Annie Parisse
Normal quotes by Catharine A. MacKinnon
#194. Men who are in prison for rape think it's the dumbest thing that ever happened... it's isn't just a miscarriage of justice; they were put in jail for something very little different from what most men do most of the time and call it sex. The only difference is they got caught. That view is nonremorseful and not rehabilitative. It may also be true. It seems to me that we have here a convergence between the rapists's view of what he has done and the victim's perspective on what was done to her. That is, for both, their ordinary experiences of heterosexual intercourse and the act of rape have something in common. Now this gets us into immense trouble, because that's exactly how judges and juries see it who refuse to convict men accused of rape. A rape victim has to prove that it was not intercourse. She has to show that there was force and that she resisted, because if there was sex, consent is inferred. Finders of fact look for "more force than usual during the preliminaries". Rape is defined by distinction from intercourse - not nonviolence, intercourse. They ask, does this event look more like fucking or like rape? But what is their standard for sex, and is this question asked from the women's point of view? The level of force is not adjudicated at her point of violation; it is adjudicated at the standard for the normal level of force. Who sets this standard? #Quote by Catharine A. MacKinnon
Normal quotes by Susan Forward
#195. Once we begin to examine the forces that drive the misogynist, we find that much of his abusive behavior is a cover-up for his tremendous anxiety about women. He is caught in the conflict between his need for the woman's love and his deepseated fears of her. This man needs, as we all do, to feel emotionally taken care of, to be loved, and to feel safe. As adults we fulfill these yearnings through physical intimacy, emotional sharing, and parenting. But the misogynist finds these yearnings terribly frightening. His normal needs to be close to a woman are mixed with fears that she can annihilate him emotionally. He harbors a hidden belief that if he loves a woman, she will then have the power to hurt him, to deprive him, to engulf him, and to abandon him. Once he has invested her with these awesome and mythical powers, she becomes a fearful figure for him. #Quote by Susan Forward
Normal quotes by Randy Alcorn
#196. By eroding their sense of shame we've made immorality normal, not only in the world but also in the forbidden squadron.
...their new Christian friends recommended some of the movies Fletcher had been wondering if he should now avoid. I was delighted one of them said, "This is a great movie--only one sex scene, and the f-word's only used a few times."
'Titanic' is one of my favorites. How many Christian young people have watched it in their own homes? Think of it, Squaltaint. Suppose someone in the youth group said to the boys, 'There's an attractive girl down the street. Let's get together and go look through her window and watch her undress and lay back on a couch and pose naked from the waist up. Then this girl and her boyfriend will get in a car and have sex--let's get as close as we can and listen to them and watch the windows steam up.'
The strategy would never work. They'd know immediately it was wrong. But you can get them to do exactly the same thing by using a television instead of a window. That's all is takes! Think of it, Squaltaint. Every day Christians across the country, including many squadron leaders, watch women and men undress and commit acts of fornication and adultery the Enemy calls an abomination.
We've made them a bunch of voyeurs! Churches full of peeping toms. #Quote by Randy Alcorn

Normal quotes by Elie Wiesel
#199. Still I believe that Hanna Arendt, she was wrong when she tried to say that we are all actually capable of this, it's not true. I think it's not true. There are certain things human beings are not capable of. I mean people, even normal human beings. You have to do certain things in order to become what the enemy was and I didn't accept her philosophical outlook on that. #Quote by Elie Wiesel
Normal quotes by John Forbes Nash, Jr.
#200. Though I had success in my research both when I was mad and when I was not, eventually I felt that my work would be better respected if I thought and acted like a 'normal' person. #Quote by John Forbes Nash, Jr.
