Opposites quotes by Kanye West
#1. I believe that bad taste is vulgar. It's like cursing. I think the world can be saved through design, because what is the most distasteful thing someone can do? Kill someone. So, good taste is the opposite of that. #Quote by Kanye West
Opposites quotes by Tracy Chevalier
#2. What's funny about opposites be that wet and dry both has water, boy and girl be about people, Heaven and Hell be the places you go when you die. They all has something in common. So they an't completely different from each other the way people think. Having the one don't mean t'other be gone. #Quote by Tracy Chevalier
Opposites quotes by Jaci Burton
#3. For those who have found love in the strangest places, in people who are polar opposites in terms of profession and interests, and believe that happily ever after comes from finding common ground. #Quote by Jaci Burton
Opposites quotes by Kay Panabaker
#4. My whole thing is that often times when teenagers are about 18, 19, 20, 21, they get this mentality that they have to be old, they have to appear older, they can no longer be seen as a high schooler, they need to be seen as mid-20s all of a sudden even though they're only, like, 20. I'm the opposite of that. #Quote by Kay Panabaker
Opposites quotes by William A. Henry III
#5. It is a commonplace observation that liberals believe in the perfectibility of man while conservatives believe in the endurance of original sin. Superficially, that would suggest that conservatives take a more understanding and indulgent view of individual lapses, while liberals take a more harshly judgmental one. In fact, we know, quite the opposite is the case. #Quote by William A. Henry III
Opposites quotes by Allison Glock
#6. Southern women see no point in the hard way. Life is hard enough. So we add a little sugar to the sour. Which is not to suggest Southern women are disingenuous cream puffs. Quite the opposite. When you are born into a history as loaded as the South's, when you carry in your bones the incontrovertible knowledge of man's violence and limitations, daring to stay sweet is about the most radical thing you can do. #Quote by Allison Glock
Opposites quotes by Terence McKenna
#7. And that we cannot go to space with our feet in the mud. Nor can we in fact turn ourselves into an eco-sensitive hallucinogenic-based culture on Earth unless we fuse these dichotomous opposites. It is only in a coincidencia oppositorum, a union of opposites, that does not strive for closure, that we are going to find cultural sanity. And this is the thing that the entheogens, the hallucinogens, deliver with such clarity and regularity. They raise paradox to a level of intensity that no one can evade. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Opposites quotes by Kanye West
#8. Hate and love are very similar emotions. The opposite of love is you don't care. #Quote by Kanye West
Opposites quotes by Blake Mycoskie
#9. Complicated lives and heaps of possessions don't necessarily bring happiness; in fact, they can bring the opposite. #Quote by Blake Mycoskie
Opposites quotes by Steven Pressfield
#10. The opposite of fear is love - love of the challenge, love of the work, the pure joyous passion to take a shot at our dream and see if we can pull it off. #Quote by Steven Pressfield
Opposites quotes by Samuel Johnson
#11. Many a man is mad in certain instances, and goes through life without having it perceived. For example, a madness has seized a person of supposing himself obliged literally to pray continually; had the madness turned the opposite way, and the person thought it a crime ever to pray, it might not improbably have continued unobserved. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Opposites quotes by Ruth Downie
#12. They say opposites attract, but like meets like, too. #Quote by Ruth Downie
Opposites quotes by Jane Espenson
#13. Any story worth telling relates to real life in some meaningful way. Scifi allows you to tell meaningful stories without seeming too preachy - it adds a metaphorical layer between the story and the real world. Scifi is dismissed as ungrounded fluff, but it's actually the opposite. #Quote by Jane Espenson
Opposites quotes by Dhul-Nun Al-Misri
#14. Whatever you imagine, God is the opposite of that. #Quote by Dhul-Nun Al-Misri
Opposites quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#15. You like lies?" Shallan asked. "Good lies," Pattern said. "That lie. Good lie." "What makes a lie good?" Shallan asked, taking careful notes, recording Pattern's exact words. "True lies." "Pattern, those two are opposites." "Hmmmm . . . Light makes shadow. Truth makes lies. Hmmmm. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Opposites quotes by Shane Filan
#16. You shouldn't end a band like Westlife and not be financially secure to some extent, but I wasn't at all - it was the complete opposite. But you look at stuff then, 'Well, what do I have? I don't have money but I have a great marriage, three healthy kids, and I have my voice. I'll just start again.' #Quote by Shane Filan
Opposites quotes by Frederic Tcheng
#17. As a filmmaker, you look for a story, and the story has to have conflict and a match of opposites. #Quote by Frederic Tcheng
Opposites quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#18. There was a sudden awkwardness between them, so thick it permeated the air around them. "Ahhh," Nick said as he understood why they weren't explaining it. As the old saying went, opposites attract. "You two are special friends."
Kyrian frowned. "How do you mean?"
Acheron passed a peeved look to Kyrian. "He thinks we're a couple."
Kyrian took a step away from Acheron. "No. No. No. Definitely not. Not that Acheron is not an attractive man, not that I've ever really noticed whether or not he's attractive, but male is not my type. #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Opposites quotes by Henry Paulson
#19. Economic growth and environmental protection are not at odds. They're opposite sides of the same coin if you're looking at longer-term prosperity. #Quote by Henry Paulson
Opposites quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#20. The idea that myth is the opposite of knowledge, or the opposite of truth, is simply to disallow it. It is like saying poetry is the opposite of truth. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Opposites quotes by Jean De La Bruyere
#21. False modesty is the masterpiece of vanity: showing the vain man in such an illusory light that he appears in the reputation of the virtue quite opposite to the vice which constitutes his real character; it is a deceit. #Quote by Jean De La Bruyere
Opposites quotes by Reynolds Price
#22. A need to tell and hear stories is essential to the species Homo sapiens-second in necessity apparently after nourishment and before love and shelter. Millions survive without love or home, almost none in silence; the opposite of silence leads quickly to narrative, and the sound of story is the dominant sound of our lives, from the small accounts of our day's events to the vast incommunicable constructs of psychopaths. #Quote by Reynolds Price
Opposites quotes by Donald Hall
#23. Opposites are attracted when each one is anxious about its own character. #Quote by Donald Hall
Opposites quotes by Cindy Sheehan
#24. The opposite of good is not evil; it's apathy. #Quote by Cindy Sheehan
Opposites quotes by Vasco Ronchi
#25. It is perplexing to see the flexibility of the so-called 'exact sciences' which by cast-iron laws of logic and by the infallible help of mathematics can lead to conclusions which are diametrically opposite to one another. #Quote by Vasco Ronchi
Opposites quotes by Frank Wilczek
#26. Supersymmetry, if correct, will be a profound new embodiment of beauty in the world. Because the transformations of supersymmetry turn substance particles into force particles, and vice versa, supersymmetry can explain, based on symmetry, why neither of those things can exist without the other: Both are the same thing, seen from different perspectives. Supersymmetry reconciles apparent opposites, in the spirit of yin-yang. #Quote by Frank Wilczek
Opposites quotes by Italo Calvino
#27. To fly is the opposite of traveling: you cross a gap in space, you vanish into the void, you accept not being in a place for a duration that is itself a kind of void in time; then you reappear, in a place and in a moment with no relation to the where and when in which you vanished. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Opposites quotes by Dick Morris
#28. With a congressional mandate to run the deficit up as high as need be, there is no reason to raise taxes now and risk aggravating the depression. Instead, Obama will follow the opposite of the Reagan strategy. Reagan cut taxes and increased the deficit so that liberals could not increase spending. Obama will raise spending and increase the deficit so that conservatives cannot cut taxes. And, when the economy is restored, he will raise taxes with impunity, since the only people who will have to pay them would be rich Republicans. #Quote by Dick Morris
Opposites quotes by Nick Hornby
#29. For the best part of 40 years she had genuinely believed that not doing things would somehow prevent regret, when, of course, the exact opposite was true. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Opposites quotes by Michael Scott
#30. Reverse psychology is an awesome tool, I don't know if you guys know about it, but basically you can make someone think the opposite of what you believe, and that tricks them into doing something stupid. Works like a charm. #Quote by Michael Scott
Opposites quotes by Charlotte Gainsbourg
#31. I have ideas of subjects and atmospheres that I love. I either want to go in a tougher, stronger direction or do the opposite: simple ballads. #Quote by Charlotte Gainsbourg
Opposites quotes by Marya Hornbacher
#32. For a long time I believed the opposite of passion was death. I was wrong. Passion and death are implicit, one in the other. Past the border of a fiery life lies the netherworld. I can trace this road, which took me through places so hot the very air burned the lungs. I did not turn back. I pressed on, and eventually passed over the border, beyond which lies a place that is wordless and cold, so cold that it, like mercury, burns a freezing blue flame. #Quote by Marya Hornbacher
Opposites quotes by Joan Robinson
#33. Whatever you can rightly say about India, the opposite is also true. #Quote by Joan Robinson
Opposites quotes by Paul Gauguin
#34. Stressing output is the key to improving productivity, while looking to increase activity can result in just the opposite. #Quote by Paul Gauguin
Opposites quotes by Tracy Austin
#35. My sister and I are opposites in many ways. She is six feet tall, while I'm five feet four. #Quote by Tracy Austin
Opposites quotes by David Steindl-Rast
#36. Look closely and you will find that people are happy because they are grateful. The opposite of gratefulness is just taking everything for granted. #Quote by David Steindl-Rast
Opposites quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#37. Christianity got over the difficulty of combining furious opposites, by keeping them both, and keeping them both furious. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Opposites quotes by Nico Muhly
#38. As a composer you want to tell musicians two completely contradictory things. You want to say, "Play exactly what I wrote, but bring your own thing to it." In a lot of ways they feel like opposites, but in a sense, my job is to cajole or encourage decisions that I approve of. #Quote by Nico Muhly
Opposites quotes by Robert D. Hales
#39. Whenever we choose to come unto Christ, take His name upon us, and follow His servants, we progress along the path to eternal life. In our mortal journey, it is helpful to remember that the opposite is also true: when we don't keep the commandments or follow the promptings of the Holy Ghost, our opportunities are reduced; our abilities to act and progress are diminished. #Quote by Robert D. Hales
Opposites quotes by Aporva Kala
#40. He did not see the huge armies but the world divided into two opposites camps: the right and the wrong, the good and the evil, the aggressor and the defender, the unrighteous and the righteous, the arrogant and the humble. It is not the people who are inclined to fight against each other but the men who lead them. Humanity as a rule wants to relate with each other and wars are an exception to this rule. #Quote by Aporva Kala
Opposites quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#41. There is a sad tendency in our world today for persons to cut one another down. Did you ever realize that it does not take very much in the way of brainpower to make remarks that may wound another? Try the opposite of that. Try handing out compliments. #Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley
Opposites quotes by C.S. Lewis
#42. There is one vice of which no man in the world is free; which every one in the world loathes when he sees it in someone else; and of which hardly any people, except Christians, ever imagine that they are guilty themselves. [ ... ] There is no fault which makes a man more unpopular, and no fault which we are more unconscious of in ourselves.[ ... ]The vice I am talking of is Pride or Self-Conceit: and the virtue opposite to it, in Christian morals, is called Humility. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Opposites quotes by Erykah Badu
#43. Whereas I want everything to be peaceful during a birth, I take the total opposite approach when I'm helping someone come to terms with leaving this place - I play Richard Pryor records. #Quote by Erykah Badu
Opposites quotes by Lisa Kemmerer
#44. In Western patriarchal culture, both women and nonhuman nature have been devalued alongside their assumed opposites--men and civilization/culture. #Quote by Lisa Kemmerer
Opposites quotes by Richard Steele
#45. Nothing is more silly than the pleasure some people take in "speaking their minds." A man of this make will say a rude thing for the mere pleasure of saying it, when an opposite behavior, full as innocent, might have preserved his friend, or made his fortune. #Quote by Richard Steele
Opposites quotes by Suzanne Collins
#46. Whatever the opposite of fine is, that's what I am. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Opposites quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#47. There are so many men, all endlessly attempting to sweep me off my feet. And there is one of you, trying just the opposite. Making sure my feet are firm beneath me, lest I fall. #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Opposites quotes by Herbert Marcuse
#48. Entertainment and learning are not opposites; entertainment may be the most effective mode of learning. #Quote by Herbert Marcuse
Opposites quotes by Fred Upton
#49. The national debate on health care once centered on improving access to quality care, yet the effect of Obamacare will be the exact opposite, resulting in the shameful degradation of care for the neediest individuals. #Quote by Fred Upton
Opposites quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#50. The grace of novelty and the length of habit, though so very opposite to one another, yet agree in this, that they both alike keepus from discovering the faults of our friends. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Opposites quotes by Charles Simonyi
#51. Programming today is the opposite of diamond mining. In diamond mining you dig up a lot of dirt to find a small bit of value. With programming you start with the value, the real intention, and bury it in a bunch of dirt. #Quote by Charles Simonyi
Opposites quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#52. The lion shall never lie down with the lamb. The lion eternally shall devour the lamb, the lamb eternally shall be devoured. Man knows the great consummation in the flesh, the sensual ecstasy, and that is eternal. Also the spiritual ecstasy of unanimity, that is eternal. But the two are separate and never to be confused. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Opposites quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#53. The way to God is the opposite to that of the world. And to few, very few, are given to have God and mammon at the same time. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Opposites quotes by Demetri Martin
#54. One of my favorite clothing patterns is camouflage. Because when you're in the woods it makes you blend in. But when you're not it does just the opposite. It's like "hey, there's an asshole." #Quote by Demetri Martin
Opposites quotes by Wim Wenders
#55. The beautiful image today means nothing. It's worthshit. In fact, it's almost as if it has the opposite effect, becauseyou're just like everything else out there. #Quote by Wim Wenders
Opposites quotes by Tony Rothman
#56. Analogies and metaphors have often proved pivotal in expanding our thoughts both within and without science, and so one should not discourage the attempt to synthesize apparent opposites. However, citizens of the New Age often forget that, when they involve science, analogies should be tempered by experiment and calculation. #Quote by Tony Rothman
Opposites quotes by Adam Smith
#57. The interest of the dealers, however, in any particular branch of trade or manufactures, is always in some respects different from, and even opposite to, that of the public. To widen the market and to narrow the competition, is always the interest of the dealers. #Quote by Adam Smith
Opposites quotes by Haruki Murakami
#58. You tell me there is no fighting or hatred or desire in the Town. That is a beautiful dream, and I do want your happiness. But the absence of fighting or hatred or desire also means the opposites do not exist either. No joy, no communion, no love. Only where there is disillusionment and depression and sorrow does happiness arise; without despair or loss, there is no hope. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Opposites quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#59. Education is implication. It is not the things you say which children
respect; when you say things, they very commonly laugh and do the opposite.
It is the things you assume which really sink into them. It is the things
you forget even to teach that they learn. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
Opposites quotes by Kathryn E. Livingston
#60. Maybe it's something to do with the movements: the Cat and then the Cow, the twist to the left and then to the right, the reaching up, and then bending to the ground, the constant training of the body to move one way, and then to move in the opposite way. Hatha: sun, moon opposites, dark and light, yin and yang. This must be key in the way yoga shapes the mind and heart, in the way it helps one to understand that every movement has a counter movement, that every action has an opposing action, that the happy parts of life will be met by the sad, and the sad, in turn will be met by the happy. #Quote by Kathryn E. Livingston
Opposites quotes by John Stossel
#61. Unions say, 'Education of the children is too important to be left to the vagaries of the market.' The opposite is true. Education is too important to be left to the calcified union/government monopoly. #Quote by John Stossel
Opposites quotes by Bohumil Hrabal
#62. And so everything I see in this world, it all moves backward and forward at the same time, like a black-smith's bellows, like everything in my press, turning into its opposite at the command of the red and green buttons, and that's what makes the world go round. #Quote by Bohumil Hrabal
Opposites quotes by Meka James
#63. The most basic principle of Yin and Yang is that one cannot exist without the other," I stated, stepping towards her. "There can be no light without the dark, no good without evil, and no you without me; we are complementary opposites that balance each other. #Quote by Meka James
Opposites quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#64. Can we think about love ? When you love, is thought functioning ? Love and thought are not in opposition; do not let us divide them as opposites. When one loves, is there a sense of seperateness, of bringing people together, or disbanding them, pushing them away ? Surely that state of love can be experienced only when the process of thought is not functioning - which does not mean that one must become crazy, unbalanced. On the contrary. It requires the highest form of thought to go beyond. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Opposites quotes by Barnaby Legg
#65. I guess at some point we fell in love, whatever that means. What the fuck is love anyway? Is it mutual dependance; two bipolar opposites bringing their failings together, making a comprehensive hole? Is it needing someone around all the time, just to feel like yourself? Is it a form of madness - all those cells & neurons giggling like moon-happy coyotes? Is it missing someone, feeling a physical craving for them, even when they are lying right next to you? Yes, I guess we fell in love. #Quote by Barnaby Legg
Opposites quotes by Kate Bowler
#66. I can't reconcile the way that the world is jolted by events that are wonderful and terrible, the gorgeous and the tragic. Except that I am beginning to believe that these opposites do not cancel each other out. I see a middle aged woman in the waiting room of the cancer clinic, her arms wrapped around the frail frame of her son. She squeezes him tightly, oblivious to the way he looks down at her sheepishly. He laughs after a minute, a hostage to her impervious love. Joy persists somehow and I soak it in. The horror of cancer has made everything seem like it is painted in bright colors. I think the same thoughts again and again. Life is so beautiful. Life is so hard. #Quote by Kate Bowler
Opposites quotes by Kari Matchett
#67. I've worked with some absolutely wonderful directors who bring out the best in me and I know I can trust, and then I've had the opposite experience, too. I've had both experiences, and obviously one is good and one is not good. When they're great, it's good. When they're not great, it's not so great. #Quote by Kari Matchett
Opposites quotes by Tristan Tzara
#68. Dada, a roaring of tense colors, and interlacing of opposites and of all contradictions, grotesques, inconsistencies: LIFE #Quote by Tristan Tzara
Opposites quotes by Ken Wilber
#69. Thus, to see all memory as present experience is to collapse the boundaries of this present moment, to free it of illusory limits, to deliver it from the opposites of past vs. future. It becomes obvious that there is nothing behind you in time nor before you in time. You thus have nowhere to stand but in the timeless present, and thus nowhere to stand but in eternity. #Quote by Ken Wilber
Opposites quotes by Thomas Lynch
#70. Walking upright between the past and future, a tightrope walk across our times, became, for me, a way of living: trying to maintain a balance between the competing gravities of birth and death, hope and regret, sex and mortality, love and grief, all those opposites or nearly opposites that become, after a while, the rocks and hard places, synonymous forces between which we navigate, like salmon balanced in the current, damned some times if we do or don't. #Quote by Thomas Lynch
Opposites quotes by Daniel Handler
#71. We need things, and the opposite of them, and we are so rarely completely comfortable. #Quote by Daniel Handler
Opposites quotes by Peter DeGraaf
#72. Mr. John Coleman, who invented the Weather Channel, represents over 30,000 scientists who cannot get their voices heard on the main stream media, since they hold a viewpoint on Global Warming that runs opposite to the government and media template. The voices of reason are being suppressed. #Quote by Peter DeGraaf
Opposites quotes by James Dashner
#73. Sometimes they do things to make me do the opposite of what they think, I think, they think, I am going to do. #Quote by James Dashner
Opposites quotes by Phil Dourado
#74. Facts and intuition are false opposites.
Leaders should listen to their intuition and instincts and allow others to do the same because they are sub-conscious, fast ways of processing, aggregating and then accessing evidence to reach a swift conclusion.
Trust your gut. #Quote by Phil Dourado
Opposites quotes by Craig Newmark
#75. I look at what the phone company does and do the opposite. #Quote by Craig Newmark
Opposites quotes by Thomas Piketty
#76. Without precisely defined sources, methods, and concepts, it is possible to see absolutely everything and its opposite. #Quote by Thomas Piketty
Opposites quotes by Fran Lebowitz
#77. When I was young, I liked romance. But to me, romance is the opposite of domestic life. I just don't want anyone in the apartment, not for longer than a few hours. #Quote by Fran Lebowitz
Opposites quotes by Alanis Morissette
#78. I thought the more famous I became, the more friendships I would have, but the opposite was true. #Quote by Alanis Morissette
Opposites quotes by Catherine Breillat
#79. I know why I make films -cinema is a mode of expression that allows you to express all the nuances of a thing while including its opposites. These are things that can't be quantified mentally; yet they can exist and be juxtaposed. That may seem very contradictory. Cinema allows you to film these contradictions. #Quote by Catherine Breillat
Opposites quotes by Will Rogers
#80. A fanatic is always the fellow that is on the opposite side. #Quote by Will Rogers
Opposites quotes by John Allen Paulos
#81. In listening to stories we tend to suspend disbelief in order to be entertained, whereas in evaluating statistics we generally have an opposite inclination to suspend belief in order not to be beguiled. #Quote by John Allen Paulos
Opposites quotes by Bradford Cox
#82. I don't think you should make music to make music, just to show that you can. That's the opposite of vitality. #Quote by Bradford Cox
Opposites quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#83. I have often been amused by our vulgar tendency to take complex issues, with solutions at neither extreme of a continuum of possibilities, and break them into dichotomies, assigning one group to one pole and the other to an opposite end, with no acknowledgment of subtleties and intermediate positions and nearly always with moral opprobrium attached to opponents. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Opposites quotes by Max Horkheimer
#84. Once the philosophical foundation of democracy has collapsed, the statement that dictatorship is bad is rationally valid only for those who are not its beneficiaries, and there is no theoretical obstacle to the transformation of this statement into its opposite. #Quote by Max Horkheimer
Opposites quotes by Kim Edwards
#85. There was in the mountains, and perhaps in the world at large, a theory of compensation that held that for everything given something else was immediately and visibly lost. "Well, you've got the smarts even if your cousin did get the looks." Compliments, seductive as flowers, thorny with their opposites: "Yes, you may be smart but you sure are ugly; You may look nice but you didn't get a brain." Compensation; balance in the universe. #Quote by Kim Edwards
Opposites quotes by Sheri Holman
#86. Good and Evil are opposite points on a circle, Dr. Chiver. Greater good is just halfway back to Bad. #Quote by Sheri Holman
Opposites quotes by Isaac Marion
#87. Now I'm just standing here on the conveyor. Along for the ride. I reach the end, turn around, and go back the other way. The world has been distilled. Being dead is easy. After a few hours of this, I notice a female on the opposite conveyor. She doesn't lurch or groan like most of us. Her head just lolls from side to side. I like that about her. That she doesn't lurch or groan. I catch her eye and stare at her. #Quote by Isaac Marion
Opposites quotes by Vincent Van Gogh
#88. To the one party, woman is always heresy and diabolical. To me, the opposite. #Quote by Vincent Van Gogh
Opposites quotes by I. Alan Appt
#89. Quotations from



Convey to others more compassion, sensitivity, understanding rather than judgementalism"

To find pity shall enable forgiveness to surface

There are good bones in everyone's body, what varies are the number

Cause and effect from the very smallest act by one individual can change mankind for all time

Devastation can be a reward, and a path to regeneration

Emotions May Inhibit our Ability to Find Peace

One must conquer One's insensitivity to sensitivity

True peace maintains strength and calm in the face of discord and tension

Wisdom is not guranteed to be achieved with age but rather realized with ones sensitiviy to man and the universe

Opposites create duality. The ego creates opposites. Therefore, the ego creates duality

One should not permit his or her life path to be influenced by the expectations of others.

Doubt is the archenemy of the purity of thought and it inhibits the
essence of all that is

Our, emotions and perceptions determine our attitudes and ultimately our choices

Don't do it later; do it now.

True love is unconditional and everlasting and it cannot cease.

Reframing from negative speech is a path to reduction of negative thought

Uncontaminated #Quote by I. Alan Appt
Opposites quotes by Tracy Chapman
#90. We have more media than ever and more technology in our lives. It's supposed to help us communicate, but it has the opposite effect of isolating us. #Quote by Tracy Chapman
Opposites quotes by Frederick Lenz
#91. They have rejected that power and sought to convince women of the exact opposite, that they are powerless. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Opposites quotes by Alice Hoffman
#92. Franny entwined her legs with his. She understood why ancient monsters were often made of two creatures, with two hearts and minds. There was strength in such a combination of opposites. #Quote by Alice Hoffman
Opposites quotes by Lisa Edelstein
#93. There are so many good roles for women out there, I don't understand it when people say the role choices are fewer as you get older. I find the opposite to be true - there are less good roles out there for the hot 20-year-olds because the normal girl parts just aren't interesting. #Quote by Lisa Edelstein
Opposites quotes by Claire LaZebnik
#94. Juliana's a year older than me, but she sometimes seems younger - mostly because she's the opposite of cynical and I'm the opposite of the opposite of cynical. #Quote by Claire LaZebnik
Opposites quotes by Jerry Seinfeld
#95. If every instinct you have is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right. #Quote by Jerry Seinfeld
Opposites quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#96. Which, then, brings us closer to what we want to communicate: saying what we intend, or trying to say the opposite? #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Opposites quotes by G.I. Gurdjieff
#97. Love of consciousness evokes the same in response
Love of feeling evokes the opposite
Love of body depends only on type and polarity. #Quote by G.I. Gurdjieff
Opposites quotes by Jean Shinoda Bolen
#98. What particular experiences will nourish your soul? No one can prescribe that for you; it is something only you can know and experience. What is satisfying for one person may be just the opposite for someone else. Being out in nature, by the seashore, or on a mountaintop works for me. Communing with nature brings me into soul time. But for others, being out in nature is something to be tolerated, or even an ordeal, or just what you do if you're a member of a family that goes camping. #Quote by Jean Shinoda Bolen
Opposites quotes by Ed Case
#99. I believe that the fact and the reality of homosexuality and heterosexuality and of opposite and same-gender unions should be taught in our public schools without a value judgement system also being offered. #Quote by Ed Case
Opposites quotes by Marc Almond
#100. I think in the past I think I probably was a little too diverse, probably went from one spectrum to the complete opposite and confusing people. #Quote by Marc Almond
Opposites quotes by Greg Maddux
#101. People judge too much by results. I'm just the opposite. I care about more than results. I'd rather make a good pitch and give up a bloop single than make a bad pitch and get an out. #Quote by Greg Maddux
Opposites quotes by Brian Blessed
#102. In the news this week, the polls continue to slide for Gordon Brown and some people are saying he's dead and buried. But I think the opposite - I say GORDON'S ALIVE! #Quote by Brian Blessed
Opposites quotes by Ira Berlin
#103. [B]inary opposites fit nicely the formulation of history as written, but they do little to capture the messy, inchoate reality of history as lived. #Quote by Ira Berlin
Opposites quotes by Elbert Hubbard
#104. A legal or religious ceremony by which two persons of the opposite sex solemnly agree to harass and spy on each other ... until death do them join. #Quote by Elbert Hubbard
Opposites quotes by Tim Gane
#105. What I liked about doing a soundtrack is that it's almost the opposite of any kind of normal recording that a band does, because it's very much a restricted, narrow ... And I kind of like that, I find it exciting to work within these things. #Quote by Tim Gane
Opposites quotes by Tom Hodgkinson
#106. I originally welcomed the mobile phone, as it seemed to me that it would enable you to work from anywhere. On the mobile, who was to know if you were sitting on the branch of a tree or sitting in an office? But it instead had the opposite effect: instead of freeing us from the office, it allowed the office to take away our freedom. #Quote by Tom Hodgkinson
Opposites quotes by Terence McKenna
#107. History is the in-rushing toward what the Buddhists call the realm of the densely packed, a transformational realm where the opposites are unified. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Opposites quotes by Terry Pratchett
#108. They looked at one another in incomprehension, two minds driving opposite ways up a narrow street and waiting for the other man to reverse first. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Opposites quotes by John Stuart Mill
#109. All students of man and society who possess that first requisite for so difficult a study, a due sense of its difficulties, are aware that the besetting danger is not so much of embracing falsehood for truth, as of mistaking part of the truth for the whole. It might be plausibly maintained that in almost every one of the leading controversies, past or present, in social philosophy, both sides were in the right in what they affirmed, though wrong in what they denied; and that if either could have been made to take the other's views in addition to its own, little more would have been needed to make its doctrine correct. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Opposites quotes by Don Bluth
#110. In the animation world, people who understand pencils and paper usually aren't computer people, and the computer people usually aren't the artistic people, so they always stand on opposite sides of the line. #Quote by Don Bluth
Opposites quotes by William James
#111. Life is one long struggle between conclusions based on abstract ways of conceiving cases, and opposite conclusions prompted by our instinctive perception of them. #Quote by William James
Opposites quotes by Tor Norretranders
#112. Consciousness is not about information but about its opposite: order. #Quote by Tor Norretranders
Opposites quotes by Robert W. Bly
#113. Listen to your instincts, then do the opposite. #Quote by Robert W. Bly
Opposites quotes by Tim
#114. The great battle (jihad) of life is the conflict of opposites. #Quote by Tim
Opposites quotes by Roman Coppola
#115. Movies are very expensive endeavors, and my first film was not particularly a money-maker. Quite the opposite. #Quote by Roman Coppola
Opposites quotes by Frank Herbert
#116. When a creature has developed into one thing, he will choose death rather than change into his opposite. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Opposites quotes by Rick Warren
#117. At first opposites attract. Then opposites attack. #Quote by Rick Warren
Opposites quotes by Archimedes
#118. It follows at once from the last proposition that the centre of gravity of any triangle is at the intersection of the lines drawn from any two angles to the middle points of the opposite
sides respectively. #Quote by Archimedes
Opposites quotes by Paul A.M. Dirac
#119. In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite. #Quote by Paul A.M. Dirac
Opposites quotes by Romare Bearden
#120. The artist has to be exactly the opposite [of people singing the song, I've gotta be Me,] and transcend himself as he makes judgements. #Quote by Romare Bearden
Opposites quotes by Terry Pratchett
#121. The singers all loathe the sight of one another, the chorus despises the singers, they both hate the orchestra, and everyone fears the conductor; the staff on one prompt side won't talk to the staff on the opposite prompt side, the dancers are all crazed from hunger in any case ... #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Opposites quotes by Becca Fitzpatrick
#122. Or, if you decide you want to sleep at my place, on opposite sides of my bedroom with a Do Not Cross line drawn down the middle, I'll do it. I won't like it, but I'll do it. #Quote by Becca Fitzpatrick
Opposites quotes by George Heuston
#123. Dad never went to church. Here, in waning rain and emerging sunshine, was his church. It was the abiding experience of the day, converted in the instant into boundless existential expression -- bold, cold, subtle, warm, fleeting and timeless -- a dance of natural opposites. #Quote by George Heuston
Opposites quotes by Mark Twain
#124. I will remark, here, that James W. Paige, the little bright-eyed, alert, smartly dressed inventor of the machine, is a most extraordinary compound of business thrift and commercial insanity; of cold calculation and jejune sentimentality; of veracity and falsehood; of fidelity and treachery; of nobility and baseness; of pluck and cowardice; of wasteful liberality and pitiful stinginess; of solid sense and weltering moonshine; of towering genius and trivial ambitions; of merciful bowels and a petrified heart; of colossal vanity and - But there the opposites stop. His vanity stands alone, sky-piercing, as sharp of outline as an Egyptian monolith. It is the only unpleasant feature in him that is not modified, softened, compensated by some converse characteristic. #Quote by Mark Twain
Opposites quotes by Peter W. Huber
#125. Efficiency may curtail [energy] demand in the short term, for the specific task at hand. But its long-term impact is just the opposite ... efficiency fails to curb demand because it lets more people do more, and do it faster-and more/more/faster invariably swamps all the efficiency gains. #Quote by Peter W. Huber
Opposites quotes by Brian Haig
#126. Unlike magnets, opposites do not necessarily attract; sometimes they merely bash one another to death. #Quote by Brian Haig
Opposites quotes by Robert Motherwell
#127. I started with straight, basic, symbolic structures. My problem now is the opposite; as I get older, I try to make my paintings more contrapuntal, richer. #Quote by Robert Motherwell
Opposites quotes by John L. Casti
#128. If the group has a negative social mood, believing that tomorrow will be worse than today, the bias goes in the opposite direction. Instead of "welcoming" we have "rejecting," instead of "global" we tend to see events that are "local" and so forth. #Quote by John L. Casti
Opposites quotes by G. Edward Griffin
#129. Collectivists would have you believe that individualism is merely another word for selfishness, because individualists oppose welfare and other forms of coercive redistribution of wealth, but just the opposite is true. Individualists advocate true charity, which is the voluntary giving of their own money, while collectivists advocate the coercive giving of other people's money; which, of course, is why it is so popular. #Quote by G. Edward Griffin
Opposites quotes by Arthur Balfour
#130. I do not know how it comes about, but if you sit opposite a man every day and you are engaged in fighting him, you cannot help getting a liking for him whether he deserves it or not. #Quote by Arthur Balfour
Opposites quotes by James Hollis
#131. The purpose of therapy is not to remove suffering but to move through it to an enlarged consciousness that can sustain the polarity of painful opposites. #Quote by James Hollis
Opposites quotes by Michio Kushi
#132. We are always seeking our opposite, whether we know it or not. When we discover what that is we can dissolve our arrogance. #Quote by Michio Kushi
Opposites quotes by Aristotle.
#133. A straight nose is the most beautiful, but one that deviates from being straight and tends toward being hooked or snub can nevertheless still be beautiful to look at. Yet if it is tightened still more toward the extreme, [25] the part will first be thrown out of due proportion, and in the end it will cease to look like a nose at all, because it has too much of one and too little of the other of these opposites. #Quote by Aristotle.
Opposites quotes by John Berger
#134. Words are so often used in the opposite sense, as a screen of diversion. It's the struggle towards truthfulness which is the same whether one is writing a poem, a novel or an argument. #Quote by John Berger
Opposites quotes by Rickson Gracie
#135. The opposite of courage is conformity #Quote by Rickson Gracie
Opposites quotes by Rick Warren
#136. God uses the opposite situation of each fruit to allow us a choice. You can't claim to be good if you have never been tempted to be bad. #Quote by Rick Warren
Opposites quotes by Alex Kendrick
#137. Love is hard to offend and quick to forgive. How easily do you get irritated and offended? Some people live by the motto, "Never pass up an opportunity to get upset with your spouse." When something goes wrong, they quickly take full advantage of it by expressing how hurt or frustrated they are. But this is the opposite reaction of love. #Quote by Alex Kendrick
Opposites quotes by RuPaul
#138. I can always sniff out when someone is being what they think I want them to be, which is the complete opposite. I really want a queen to be herself. #Quote by RuPaul
Opposites quotes by Miyamoto Musashi
#139. There are many ways of understanding simple things, but generally the opposite is true for difficult ideas #Quote by Miyamoto Musashi
Opposites quotes by Igor Stravinsky
#140. Art is the opposite of chaos. Art is organized chaos. #Quote by Igor Stravinsky
Opposites quotes by Isaac Marion
#141. That's why we have memory. And the opposite of memory - hope. So things that are gone can still matter. So we can built off our pasts and make future. #Quote by Isaac Marion
Opposites quotes by V.S. Naipaul
#142. I had talked of Raymond's pain when I was thinking of my own, and Yvette had talked of Raymond's needs when was thinking of her won. We had begun to talk, if not in opposites, at least indirectly, lying and not lying, making those signals at the truth which people in certain situations find it necessary to make. #Quote by V.S. Naipaul
Opposites quotes by Andrew Solomon
#143. Defective is an adjective that has long been deemed too freighted for liberal discourse, but the medical terms that have supplanted it - illness, syndrome, condition - can be almost equally pejorative in their discreet way. We often use illness to disparage a way of being, and identity to validate that same way of being. This is a false dichotomy. In physics, the Copenhagen interpretation defines energy/matter as behaving sometimes like a wave and sometimes like a particle, which suggests that it is both, and posits that it is our human limitation to be unable to see both at the same time. The Nobel Prize–winning physicist Paul Dirac identified how light appears to be a particle if we ask a particle-like question, and a wave if we ask a wavelike question. A similar duality obtains in this matter of self. Many conditions are both illness and identity, but we can see one only when we obscure the other. Identity politics refutes the idea of illness, while medicine shortchanges identity. Both are diminished by this narrowness.

Physicists gain certain insights from understanding energy as a wave, and other insights from understanding it as a particle, and use quantum mechanics to reconcile the information they have gleaned. Similarly, we have to examine illness and identity, understand that observation will usually happen in one domain or the other, and come up with a syncretic mechanics. We need a vocabulary in which the two concepts are not opposites, but compatible a #Quote by Andrew Solomon
Opposites quotes by Bryan Callen
#144. Some comics really thrive on being disrespectful, especially toward women, and it's somehow understood as edgy, but I'm the opposite. I've never liked curse words for that reason. #Quote by Bryan Callen
Opposites quotes by Andy Rooney
#145. Did you ever notice that people who are good with a computer don't use it for much of anything except being good with a computer? They know all about information technology, but they don't have much interest in the information. I'm the opposite. #Quote by Andy Rooney
Opposites quotes by P.L. Travers
#146. The eternal opposites meet and kiss. The wolf and the lamb lie down together, the dove and the serpent share one nest. The stars bend down and touch the earth and the young and the old forgive each other. Night and day meet here, so do the poles. The East leans over towards the West and the circle is complete. #Quote by P.L. Travers
Opposites quotes by Ayn Rand
#147. Force and mind are opposites; morality ends where a gun begins. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Opposites quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#148. Lightning and love are created in very similar ways. There is some debate over how both lightning and love form, but most experts agree that both require the presence of complementary opposites. A towering thundercloud is full of opposites: ice and positive charge at its uppermost point, water and negative change at its base. In electricity and in love, opposites attract, and so as these opposites begin to interact, an electrical field develops. In a cloud, this field eventually grows so powerful that it must burst from the cloud in the form of lightning, visible from miles away. It is essentially the same in a love affair. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Opposites quotes by Eva Mendes
#149. I might act like it's an accident but the opposite is true. I'm incredibly calculated when it comes to my career. #Quote by Eva Mendes
Opposites quotes by Bill Maher
#150. Just honest. To me, being 'politically incorrect' means the opposite of being political
which means to spin everything. That's all it's ever meant to me. It's never meant liberal or conservative. It means honest. #Quote by Bill Maher
Opposites quotes by Deepika Padukone
#151. I've grown up watching Shah Rukh Khan and never really imagined that one day I will get to play the lead opposite him. #Quote by Deepika Padukone
Opposites quotes by John Holland Rose
#152. his personality there is a complex blending of force and grace, of animal passion and mental clearness, of northern common sense with the promptings of an oriental imagination; and this union in his nature of seeming opposites explains many of the mysteries of his life. Fortunately for lovers of romance, genius cannot be wholly analyzed, #Quote by John Holland Rose
Opposites quotes by Garth Greenwell
#153. I felt a lot of ambivalence about going back to graduate school for a second MFA. The impulse was really the opposite from what it had been more than a decade before: I wanted to interrupt a career. #Quote by Garth Greenwell
Opposites quotes by George Monbiot
#154. Development which has no regard for whom or what it harms is not development. It is the opposite of progress, damaging the Earth's capacity to support us and the rest of its living systems #Quote by George Monbiot
Opposites quotes by Gwen Stefani
#155. Although I'd always wanted children, it was such an opposite thing to being a singer. #Quote by Gwen Stefani
Opposites quotes by Rajneesh
#156. I would like a world full of love. But remember, that love has no opposite to it. It is simply because you inside yourself have been able, through awareness, to transform your hate into love. Even to say that you have been able to transform it is not right, but what else to do with language? Whatever you say, something is wrong in saying it, something goes wrong in saying it. The fact is, awareness itself transforms your hate into love, not that you transform it. Your work and function is simply to remain aware. Don't let anything happen in your life without awareness. #Quote by Rajneesh
Opposites quotes by Osho
#157. He believes in the unity of the opposites. And that is how life is. #Quote by Osho
Opposites quotes by Randa Abdel-Fattah
#158. I wasn't rebellious. Other friends had far stricter parents and where there wasn't a relationship of respect and communication, they were usually the opposite; kids go to the other extreme. #Quote by Randa Abdel-Fattah
Opposites quotes by Richard Tarnas
#159. At the foundation of Hegel's thought was his understanding of dialectic, according to which all things unfold in a continuing evolutionary process whereby every state of being inevitably brings forth its opposite. The interaction between these opposites then generates a third stage in which the opposites are integrated - they are at once overcome and fulfilled - in a richer and higher synthesis, which in turn becomes the basis for another dialectical process of opposition and synthesis... Hegel's overriding impulse was to comprehend all dimensions of existence as dialectically integrated in one unitary whole. In Hegel's view, all human thought and all reality is pervaded by contradiction, which alone makes possible the development of higher states of consciousness and higher states of being. #Quote by Richard Tarnas
Opposites quotes by Hannah More
#160. Among the many evils which prevail under the sun, the abuse of words is not the least considerable. By the influence of time, and the perversion of fashion, the plainest and most unequivocal may be so altered, as to have a meaning assigned them almost diametrically opposite to their original signification. #Quote by Hannah More
Opposites quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#161. A high income job, a big house, nice cars, and lavish vacations don't mean you are rich, in fact it could mean exactly opposite #Quote by Robert Kiyosaki
Opposites quotes by Hugh Dancy
#162. In my experience it's not essential to get on with the person that you're acting opposite. #Quote by Hugh Dancy
Opposites quotes by C. G. Jung
#163. If only a world-wide consciousness could arise that all division and fission are due to the splitting of opposites in the psyche, then we should know where to begin. #Quote by C. G. Jung
Opposites quotes by Parker J. Palmer
#164. Paradoxical thinking requires that we embrace a view of the world in which opposites are joined, so that we can see the world clearly and see it whole ... The result is a world more complex and confusing than the one made simple by either-or thought - but that simplicity is merely the dullness of death. When we think together we reclaim the life force in the world, in our students, in ourselves. #Quote by Parker J. Palmer
Opposites quotes by Iain Banks
#165. Oh, they never lie. They dissemble, evade, prevaricate, confound, confuse, distract, obscure, subtly misrepresent and willfully misunderstand with what often appears to be a positively gleeful relish and are generally perfectly capable of contriving to give one an utterly unambiguous impression of their future course of action while in fact intending to do exactly the opposite, but they never lie. Perish the thought. #Quote by Iain Banks
Opposites quotes by Kathy Lette
#166. Why do men like intelligent women? Because opposites attract. #Quote by Kathy Lette
Opposites quotes by Jim DeMint
#167. The problem we've got now in Washington is that the goals are completely the opposite from each other. #Quote by Jim DeMint
Opposites quotes by Robert M. Pirsig
#168. The funny thing about insane people is that it is kind of the opposite of being a celebrity. Nobody envies you. #Quote by Robert M. Pirsig
Opposites quotes by Madame De Stael
#169. Divine Wisdom, intending to detain us some time on earth, has done well to cover with a veil the prospect of the life to come; for if our sight could clearly distinguish the opposite bank, who would remain on this tempestuous coast of time? #Quote by Madame De Stael
Opposites quotes by Niels Bohr
#170. There are trivial truths and there are great truths. The opposite of a trivial truth is plainly false. The opposite of a great truth is also true. #Quote by Niels Bohr
Opposites quotes by Napoleon Hill
#171. The two roads that lead to poverty and riches travel in opposite directions. If you want riches, you must refuse to accept any circumstance that leads to poverty. (The word riches is here used in its broadest sense, meaning financial, spiritual, mental, and material estates). #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Opposites quotes by Theodore Spencer
#172. Words were his delight;
Hers, a gay gracefulness
Of dancing and moving.
But when to the place
Of deep loving
(Starlight at midnight)
At last they came,
Their full communion
And consummation,
Their complete sphere,
Was stillness for her,
Silence for him. #Quote by Theodore Spencer
Opposites quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#173. Enemies of art are the opposite of the Sun; they emit darkness instead of light! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Opposites quotes by Martin Seligman
#174. The optimistic style of explaining good events is the opposite of that used for bad events: It's internal rather than external. #Quote by Martin Seligman
Opposites quotes by Daniel Pinchbeck
#175. I'm starting to reread a bunch of Gandhi and it was kind of traumatic, because he was so clearly, unbelievably amazing. And the stuff that he is suggesting is so profoundly opposite from what is happening in our world today. #Quote by Daniel Pinchbeck
Opposites quotes by G. Stanley Hall
#176. The teens are emotionally unstable and pathic. It is a natural impulse to experience hot and perfervid psychic states, and it is characterized by emotionalism. We see here the instability and fluctuations now so characteristic. The emotions develop by contrast and reaction into the opposite. #Quote by G. Stanley Hall
Opposites quotes by Anne Lamott
#177. I used to think that paired opposites were a given, that love was the opposite of hate, right the opposite of wrong. But now I think we sometimes buy into these concepts because it is so much easier to embrace absolutes than to suffer reality. I don't think anything is the opposite of love. Reality is unforgivingly complex. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Opposites quotes by Lauren Kate
#178. Because love and hate were supposed to stand cleanly on opposite sides of the spectrum. The division seemed as clear as ... well, angels and demons would once have seemed to her. Not anymore. #Quote by Lauren Kate
Opposites quotes by Peter David
#179. Opposites can attract, as in magnetism. Or explode, as in matter and antimatter. #Quote by Peter David
Opposites quotes by Elaine Cannon
#180. Agency is an eternal principle and is implicit in the test of life. We must constantly choose between opposites: good and evil. Satan sought to destroy the free agency of man, and here on earth he's still working to entangle man in sin. #Quote by Elaine Cannon
Opposites quotes by Aristotle.
#181. Music imitates (represents) the passions or states of the soul, such as gentleness, anger, courage, temperance, and their opposites. #Quote by Aristotle.
Opposites quotes by Joseph Campbell
#182. The hero, whether god or goddess, man or woman, the figure in a myth or the dreamer of a dream discovers and assimilates his opposite (his own unsuspected self) either by swallowing it or by being swallowed. #Quote by Joseph Campbell
Opposites quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#183. People live in fear of bad being out to get them, when in reality, the bad side is there only to be in polar opposite proportion to the positive that you are destined to thrive in. Conquer the negative, and thrive in the positive. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Opposites quotes by Alice Miller
#184. The true opposite of depression is neither gaiety nor absence of pain, but vitality - the freedom to experience spontaneous feelings. It is part of the kaleidoscope of life that these feelings are not only happy, beautiful, or good but can reflect the entire range of human experience, including envy, jealousy, rage, disgust, greed, despair, and grief. But this freedom cannot be achieved if its childhood roots are cut off. Our access to the true self is possible only when we no longer have to be afraid of the intense emotional world of early childhood. Once we have experienced and become familiar with this world, it is no longer strange and threatening. #Quote by Alice Miller
Opposites quotes by Lynn Blackmar
#185. Nobody understood why opposites attracted, and anybody who said they did was probably selling a book. #Quote by Lynn Blackmar
Opposites quotes by David Richo
#186. The opposite of interpersonal trust is not mistrust. It is despair. This is because we have given up on believing that trustworthiness and fulfillment are possible from others. We have lost our hope in our fellow humans. #Quote by David Richo
Opposites quotes by C.S. Lewis
#187. The ideas that the whole human race is, in a sense, one thing- one huge organism, like a tree-must not be confused with the idea that individual difference is not important or that real people, Tom and Nobby and Kate, are some how less important than collective things like classes, races and so forth. Indeed the two ideas are opposites. Things which are parts of a single organism may be very different form one another: things which are not, may be very alike. Six pennies are quite separate and very alike: my nose and my lungs are very different but they are only alive at all because they are parts of my body and share its common life. Christianity thinks of individuals not as mere members of a group or items in a list, but as organs in a body- different from one another and each contributing what no other could. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Opposites quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#188. Someday there will be girls and women whose name will no longer mean the mere opposite of the male, but something in itself, something that makes one think not of any complement and limit, but only life and reality: the female human being. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Opposites quotes by Ali Wong
#189. I can see what a shock and how lonely it must have been when she went to the United States - from being surrounded by all these people who look like you, talk like you, accept your existence inherently, to living permanently in a place where all the opposites are true.

When she first got here, a dentist took one look at her teeth and said she had "the mouth of a caveman." I used to think it was funny, like you might when you read that, but the truth is that American society, while being so rife with opportunity and so incredible in so many ways, also generally made her feel primitive. #Quote by Ali Wong
Opposites quotes by Arsene Wenger
#190. Gerard is an open-minded and passionate man. I am the opposite: stubborn and stupid. But sometimes stupid behaviour makes you win. #Quote by Arsene Wenger
Opposites quotes by Julia Cameron
#191. Art is not about thinking something up. It is the opposite
getting something down. #Quote by Julia Cameron
Opposites quotes by Channing Tatum
#192. As much as you can love someone, is as much as you can hate someone. It goes in equal and opposite directions. Like if you love someone so much and they hurt you so bad, then that is as equal as to how much you can have rage for them. #Quote by Channing Tatum
Opposites quotes by Katia Lief
#193. we were never here nor there, never allowed to be happy or allowed to be sad.
Darkness and light, black and white, good and evil. Memories and new experiences were polar opposites requiring the same host: you. #Quote by Katia Lief
Opposites quotes by Neil Jordan
#194. It's the opposite journey from what I've usually done with films. I find it very easy to go from, say, a lit, pleasurable environment, like what you see outside there, to a very dark place. But the opposite journey, which is what this movie takes, is much more complicated. #Quote by Neil Jordan
Opposites quotes by Stefan Zweig
#195. Art knows no happier moment than the opportunity to show the symmetry of an extreme, during that moment of spheric harmony when the dissonance dissolves for the blink of an eye, dissolves into a blissful harmony, when the most extreme opposites, coming together from the greatest alienation, fleetingly touch with lips of the word and of love. #Quote by Stefan Zweig
Opposites quotes by Abraham H. Maslow
#196. Shortsighted people make [experientialism and social reform] opposites, mutually exclusive. [...] The empirical fact is that self-actualizing people, our best experiencers, are also our most compassionate, our great improvers and reformers of society, our most effective fighters against injustice, inequality, slavery, cruelty, exploitation (and also our best fighters for excellence, effectiveness, competence). And it also becomes clearer and clearer that our best 'helpers' are the most fully human persons. What I may call the bodhisattvic path is an integration of self-improvement and social zeal, i.e., the best way to become a better 'helper' is to become a better person. #Quote by Abraham H. Maslow
Opposites quotes by Aimee Carter
#197. You can say you love me all you want, but if you only ever act like the opposite's true, then I can't trust your words anymore. #Quote by Aimee Carter
Opposites quotes by David Hume
#198. Convulsions in nature, disorders, prodigies, miracles, though the most opposite of the plan of a wise superintendent, impress mankind with the strongest sentiments of religion. #Quote by David Hume
Opposites quotes by Amunhotep El Bey

Opposites quotes by Ivan M. Granger
#200. Love has no opposite.

Hate, fear, are not love's opposites;
they are its denial. #Quote by Ivan M. Granger
