Overwhelming Odds quotes by Michael Lee
#1. Demon is about faith, temptation and the heroic struggle for redemption in the face of overwhelming odds. #Quote by Michael Lee
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Karen Hesse
#2. Sometimes, a flame can be utterly extinguished.
Sometimes, a flame can shrink and waver, but
sometimes a flame refuses to go out. It flares up from the faintest ember to
illuminate the darkness,
to burn in spite of overwhelming odds. #Quote by Karen Hesse
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Noah Hawley
#3. This was the hubris of mankind, to rally in the face of overwhelming odds, to thread the needle and climb the mountain and survive the storm. He #Quote by Noah Hawley
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Simon Sinek
#4. As anyone who starts a business knows, it is a fantastic race. There is a statistic that hangs over your head - over 90 percent of all new businesses fail in the first three years. For anyone with even a bit of competitive spirit in them, especially for someone who defines himself or herself as an entrepreneur, these overwhelming odds of failure are not intimidating, they only add fuel to the fire. The foolishness of thinking that you're a part of the small minority of those who actually will make it past three years and defy the odds is part of what makes entrepreneurs who they are, driven by passion and completely irrational. #Quote by Simon Sinek
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#5. Through these stories, I want to explore two ideas. The first is that much of what we consider valuable in our world arises out of these kinds of lopsided conflicts, because the act of facing overwhelming odds produces greatness and beauty. And second, that we consistently get these kinds of conflict wrong. We misread them. We misinterpret them. Giants are now what we think they are. The same qualities that appear to give them strength are often the sources of great weakness. And the fact of being an underdog can change people in ways that we often fail to appreciate: it can open doors and create opportunities and educate and enlighten and make possible what might otherwise have seemed unthinkable. We need a better guide to facing giants-and there is no better place to start that journey than with the epic confrontation between David and Goliath three thousand years ago in the Valley of Elah. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Overwhelming Odds quotes by James MacDonald
#6. You'll face overwhelming odds; you'll be incredibly outnumbered. Fear would be your natural inclination. But keep in mind, God is with you. #Quote by James MacDonald
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Mary E. Pearson
#7. He consumed me in a different way- the way his eyes made everything jump inside of me when I looked into them, his laughter, temper, the way he sometimes struggled for words, the way his jaw twitched when he was angry, the thoughtful way he listened to me, his incredible restraint and resolve in the face of overwhelming odds. When I looked at him, I saw the easygoing farmer he could have been, but I also saw the soldier and prince that he was. #Quote by Mary E. Pearson
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Prem Jagyasi
#8. Balanced self-esteem makes individuals glow from within when they are faced with challenges or pitted against overwhelming odds. #Quote by Prem Jagyasi
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Ernest Cline
#9. Even humanity's lack of concern for its rampant overpopulation problem now made a terrible kind of sense. What difference did it make if our planet was capable of supporting all seven billion of us in the long term when a far greater threat to our numbers was waiting in the wings? And despite the overwhelming odds, humanity had done what was necessary to ensure its own survival. It filled me with a strange new sense of pride in my own species. We weren't a bunch of primitive monkeys teetering on the brink of self-destruction after all - this appeared ti be an altogether different kind of destruction we were teetering on the brink of. #Quote by Ernest Cline
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Louis Nizer
#10. I know of no higher fortitude than stubborness in the face of overwhelming odds. #Quote by Louis Nizer
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Ilona Andrews
#11. May I say that I am delighted that my favorite alpha is feeling better. Why, you'll be running recklessly into danger against overwhelming odds anytime now. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Russell Hoban
#12. The mouse and his child, who had learned so much and had prevailed against such overwhelming odds, never could be persuaded to teach a success course ... The whole secret of the thing, they insisted, was simply and at all costs to move steadily ahead, and that, they said, could not be taught. #Quote by Russell Hoban
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Robert Spencer
#13. Thus were first enunciated what would become recurring themes of jihad literature throughout the centuries to today: piety in Islam will bring military victory. Allah will send angels to fight with the believing Muslims, such that they will conquer even against overwhelming odds. #Quote by Robert Spencer
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Ilona Andrews
#14. (I) went to see the noble knights of Holy Anocracy.
By the time they assembled, the inn finished assimilating the new gaming consoles. I waved my hand and three huge flat screen opened in the stone walls of the vampire quarters. Wall spat out sets of controllers.
"Greetings," I said. "House Krah, House Sabla and House Vorga, may I present Call of Duty."
The three screens ignited simultaneously, playing the opening of the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Soldiers in high tech armor shot at target, flew across the screen from bomb impacts, and walked dramatically in slow motion. Vehicles roared, Marines roared louder, and Kevin Spacey informed us that politicians didn't know how to solve problems but he did.
The vampires stared at the screens.
"This is a game of cooperative action," I said, "Where a small elite force can triumph against overwhelming odds."
At the word elite, they perked up like wild dogs who heard a rabbit cry.
"The game will teach you how to play it. May the best House triumph over their opponents. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Rene Carayol

Overwhelming Odds quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#16. We tell rags-to-riches stories because we find something captivating in the idea of a lone hero battling overwhelming odds. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell

Overwhelming Odds quotes by Sheila Kamerman
#18. Being a member of the labor force and a full-time parent means trying to manage against overwhelming odds in an unresponsive society. #Quote by Sheila Kamerman
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Vicki Courtney
#19. Getting hurt physically, failing, persevering, and succeeding (despite overwhelming odds) are key factors in a male's growth toward manhood. #Quote by Vicki Courtney
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Orison Swett Marden
#20. Success is not measured by what you accomplish but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds. #Quote by Orison Swett Marden
Overwhelming Odds quotes by David B. Haight
#21. Don't be discouraged at seemingly overwhelming odds in your desire to live and to help others live God's commandments. At times it may seem like David trying to fight Goliath. But remember, David did win. #Quote by David B. Haight
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Bernie Sanders
#22. Change comes, even in the face of overwhelming odds. And the recognition of the changes we have already made, of what we have won, inspires us to fight even harder. When #Quote by Bernie Sanders

Overwhelming Odds quotes by Malcolm Gladwell

Overwhelming Odds quotes by Margo Rabb
#26. Lightning could strike twice, three times, or ten. When you're on the wrong side of the odds, the odds are meaningless. They don't protect you or give you comfort. #Quote by Margo Rabb
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Christian Tetzlaff
#27. This was the book I read over and over. I really felt so in tune with them- I knew all the dates of their lives, what they had been doing, whre they had been. They were always my heroes, creating something fantastic against all odds, and against their real life. #Quote by Christian Tetzlaff
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Robert E. Rubin
#28. Once you've internalised the concept that you can't prove anything in absolute terms, life becomes all the more about odds, chances, and trade-offs.

In a world without provable truths, the only way to refine the probabilities that remain is through greater knowledge and understanding. #Quote by Robert E. Rubin
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Uday Satpathy
#29. convocation. 'Impossibility is an inherent part of nature, an ancient beast. It instils fear in your heart. Yet, you have to accept it, embrace it. It'll be a terrible experience, mind you. But you need to bear it and then forget it. Just put a number on that piece of memory and lock it in a closet inside your mind. What's that number, you might ask. Well, it's the probability. Of you succeeding, against all odds. And it will be low, very low. That's why you need to hide it from your eyes. Just remember that your probability of succeeding is never zero. Once you have done that, use every quantum of energy available in your body to achieve what people so fondly call as the impossible. You can do it. I know that. And the day you do, you'll realize that the number didn't matter at all. #Quote by Uday Satpathy
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Oksana Rus
#30. Ocean has taken possession of me. He has hold of me forever. I'm lured to His charming beauty and overwhelming majestic presence. He makes me dream, dance, fly and laugh. His mystical silence is mesmerizing. His roaring voice is fascinating. He inspires with infinite depth and makes me gasp from His rocking weight... Each time, being parted, we, like true lovers, desperately rush into a tearfully passionate hug... United once again He elegantly carries me where I long to be. His euphoric scent fills the air, adoring stillness and glimmering serenity embraces with the warmth of gently kissing waves makes my whole body sing... He always keeps His faithful promises to me and I give back. I find peace in Him and He finds Love in me... Every day and night diving in each other's eyes and exchanging vows we write the book to pass down this miracle of unseen... #Quote by Oksana Rus
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Arthur Henry King
#31. Abundance of the Heart. He describes an experience with nature and his father. An environment of trust can have to do with a special experience, a place, another person, or people.

My first real discovery of nature in life came one morning in April 1916. My father put me on the back of his bike, where I had a little seat, and said, "Off we go." And then he turned in the wrong direction for I thought he was taking me down to Quakers' meeting--it was a Sunday. "No," he said, "we are going somewhere else today." And we rode for about eight miles, and we stopped at a wood. . . . We went into the wood; and there, suddenly, was a great pool of bluebells stretching for perhaps a hundred yards in the shade of the oak trees. And I could scarcely breathe because the impression was so great. The experience then was just the bluebells and the scent; now, when I recall it, it is also the love of my father who chose to do that that morning--to give me that experience. I am sure he had been there the day before, found it, and thought, "I'll take my son there." As we rode there and as we rode back, we heard the distant thud of the guns at the Battle of the Somme, where thousands were dying every day. That overwhelming experience of a natural phenomenon, a demonstration of beneficent creation, and at the same time hearing those guns on the Somme--that experience has remained with me almost more clearly than anything else in my life. [The Abundance of the Heart (Salt Lake City: Book #Quote by Arthur Henry King
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Taya Kyle
#32. The area around the fifty-yard line had been set up with a stage and seating. The kids held my hands as we went to the elevator, ready to go out.
"Can you believe we're in Cowboys Stadium for Daddy?" I asked them, trying to rally my spirits as well as theirs. "He would be so blown away."
I think they nodded.
The elevator opened. We got in. The car went down, and suddenly we were walking onto the runway that led to the field.
Pay attention to what's around you. This is unbelievable!
The bagpipers began to move, the tap of their shoes on the concrete apron echoing loudly. The cadence centered me. The pipes began to mourn and my spirit swelled, the music propelling me forward.
The casket was marched out and placed front and center.
The pallbearers and Navy honor guard stood at attention.
I was moving in a cocoon of numbing grief and overwhelming awe. There was a prayer, speeches--each moment moved me in a different way. The easy jokes, the devotional hymns, each had its own effect.
I began to float.
When I'd asked people to talk about Chris at the ceremony, I'd made a point of reminding them of his humor and asking if possible to add some lighter touches to their speeches, roasting him, even; it was all so Chris. But now some of the light jokes tripped a wire:
Don't talk bad about him! Don't you dare!
Then in the next moment I'd realize he would have been leading the laughs, and it was all good again.
I couldn't f #Quote by Taya Kyle
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Suzanne Collins

Overwhelming Odds quotes by R.L. LaFevers
#34. I have never been one for putting my faith in odds. I put my faith in higher things. #Quote by R.L. LaFevers
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Sylvia Day
#35. His repertoire. He grinned sheepishly, a boyish smile so at odds with the mature sexuality of his bared body. #Quote by Sylvia Day
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Joseph Monninger
#36. In a universe, on a continent, in a country, in a state, in a county, on a river, in a small yellow boat,' I said. 'That's what Mary used to say to explain the odds of us meeting. And you have to be born in roughly the same period. Those are the odds. And probably you need to speak the same language.'-- Cobb #Quote by Joseph Monninger
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#37. The cliche about prison life is that I am actually integrated into it, ruined by it, when my accommodation to it is so overwhelming that I can no longer stand or even imagine freedom, life outside prison, so that my release brings about a total psychic breakdown, or at least gives rise to a longing for the lost safety of prison life. The actual dialectic of prison life, however, is somewhat more refined. Prison in effect destroys me, attains a total hold over me, precisely when I do not fully consent to the fact that I am in prison but maintain a kind of inner distance towards it, stick to the illusion that 'real life is elsewhere' and indulge all the time in daydreaming about life outside, about nice things that are waiting for me after my release or escape. I thereby get caught in the vicious cycle of fantasy, so that when, eventually, I am released, the grotesque discord between fantasy and reality breaks me down. The only true solution is therefore fully to accept the rules of prison life and then, within the universe governed by these rules, to work out a way to beat them. In short, inner distance and daydreaming about Life Elsewhere in effect enchain me to prison, whereas full acceptance of the fact that I am really there, bound by prison rules, opens up a space for true hope. #Quote by Slavoj Zizek
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Frederick Buechner
#38. Let the preacher tell the truth. Let him make audible the silence of the news of the world with the sound turned off so that in the silence we can hear the tragic truth of the Gospel, which is that the world where God is absent is a dark and echoing emptiness; and the comic truth of the Gospel, which is that it is into the depths of his absence that God makes himself present in such unlikely ways and to such unlikely people that old Sarah and Abraham and maybe when the time comes even Pilate and Job and Lear and Henry Ward Beecher and you and I laugh till the tears run down our cheeks. And finally let him preach this overwhelming of tragedy by comedy, of darkness by light, of the ordinary by the extraordinary, as the tale that is too good not to be true because to dismiss it as untrue is to dismiss along with it that catch of the breath, that beat and lifting of the heart near to or even accompanied by tears, which I believe is the deepest intuition of truth that we have. #Quote by Frederick Buechner
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Michael Hyatt
#39. It's better to succeed against daunting odds than settle for a fantasy and get nowhere. #Quote by Michael Hyatt
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Paul Neilan
#40. He had strawberry blond hair. That's enough right there. That's all you need to know. If you're a man with strawberry blond hair and you're not in the circus or a Viking, odds are you have not found your place in life and never will. #Quote by Paul Neilan
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Mary Faulkner
#41. It is interesting to note that the overwhelming majority of all human beings who have ever lived were or currently are Pagans. #Quote by Mary Faulkner
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Mariana Zapata
#42. The urge to fall to the ground, rip my heart out of my chest and hold it out like a sacred offering was overwhelming. /Take it! Take it all!/ I'd cry. #Quote by Mariana Zapata
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Jennifer Lopez
#43. And I never ask what I'm doing the next day. I don't want to know what I'm doing tomorrow. It's much too overwhelming. So I just go day by day, without knowing. #Quote by Jennifer Lopez
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Winston Churchill
#44. The gratitude of every home in our Island, in our Empire, and indeed throughout the world, except in the abodes of the guilty, goes out to the British airmen who, undaunted by odds, unwearied in their constant challenge and mortal danger, are turning the tide of the World War by their prowess and by their devotion. Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few. #Quote by Winston Churchill
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Erich Neumann
#45. I must quote from Dr. Faustus, with which the tragedy ends: "Often he talked of eternal grace, the poor man, and I don't know if it will be enough. But an understanding heart, believe me, is enough for everything."
Let us understand these words correctly. They are not proud or arrogant; on the contrary they are desperately modest. We really do not know any longer whether grace is enough, precisely because we are as we are and are beginning to see ourselves as we are. But at a time of overwhelming crisis, the questionable nature of grace, or rather our knowledge that we are unworthy of grace, compels us to understand and love mankind, the fallible mankind that we ourselves are. Behind this abysmal crisis, the archetype of the Eternal Feminine as earth and as Sophia would seem to be discernible; it is no accident that these words are spoken by Frau Schweigestill, the mother. That is to say, it is precisely in chaos, in hell, that the New makes its appearance. Did not Kwanyin descend into hell rather than spend her time with the serene music makers in heaven? #Quote by Erich Neumann
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Adam Zagajewski
#46. A little rain, a little blood. Black fingernails in August; and going berserk, going bananas. As if entrapped in a tropical heatwave, with dozens of whirlwinds swirling in one's mind, one thinks of a way out, or a way in: out of the scorching bosom of a volcano, and in – into the centre of a raging hurricane. And tracing the labyrinthine ways of your mind, the haphazard vagaries of your thoughts at ease, the odds and ends of your mental surplus you carelessly throw at the world, one wants to be at a loss, in a maze; amazed, and amazingly unabashed. #Quote by Adam Zagajewski
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Aberjhani
#47. Human beings, in a sense, may be thought of as multidimensional creatures composed of such poetic considerations as the individual need for self-realization, subdued passions for overwhelming beauty, and a hunger for meaning beyond the flavors that enter and exit the physical body. A person might even be described as a self-contained multiverse. #Quote by Aberjhani
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Evan Osnos
#48. Disclosure and transparency are the currency of the Internet, and they are at odds with authoritarianism. #Quote by Evan Osnos
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Arkady Strugatsky
#49. Take myths, for instance! As we know, fools are the overwhelming majority, which means that the witness to any interesting event has generally been a fool. Ergo: a myth is a description of a real event as perceived by a fool and refined by a poet. eh? #Quote by Arkady Strugatsky
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Jonathan Daniel Gomez
#50. But there are no criminals here
Just people surviving against all odds
Multi and never ending circumstances
of racial repression
Class war accompanied
with post-traumatic stress
syndrome-like symptoms
Marshal law-like conditions
Magic trick tactics
transforming Brown and Black pearls into perils
with K-9's searching the perimeter
Face filled with hate
abra cadabra cop smiles
with a gun and a badge
The bullet is faster than the eye
Judges able to devour justice
with a single courtroom motion
not missing a crumb
Now you have your freedom
then you don't #Quote by Jonathan Daniel Gomez
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Nick Miller
#51. Some people are good at being in love. Some people are good at love. Two very different things, I think. Being in love is the romantic part - sex all the time, midday naps in the sheets, the jokes, the laughs, the fun, long conversations with no pauses, overwhelming separation anxiety ... Just the best sides of both people, you know? But love begins when the excitement of being in love starts to fade: the stress of life sets in, the butterflies disappear, the sex becomes a chore, the tears, the sadness, the arguments, the cattiness ... The worst parts of both people. But if you still want that person by your side through all of those things ... that's when you know - that's when you know you're good at love. #Quote by Nick Miller
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Drexel Deal
#52. When I snatched the gun out of his hand, it fired because the hammer was already pulled back. It made the thunderous sound that the .357 magnum is known for. Even though the sound itself was deafening, it was like beautiful music to my ears. Just a few short seconds ago, the odds were greatly stacked against me. Now the tides had turned. The odds were now stacked against them, and they knew it. When I turned around to face my pursuers, they were in an all-out retreat. All I saw were their backs. #Quote by Drexel Deal
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Georgia Cates
#53. I think the odds of her killing me with sex are good, but what a way to go. At least I'll die happy. #Quote by Georgia Cates
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Franklin Knight Lane
#54. The bravest sight in all this world is a man fighting against odds. #Quote by Franklin Knight Lane
Overwhelming Odds quotes by Tavi Gevinson
#55. I feel like a young adult. In high school I never felt like my professional life and my personal life were at odds, because my job has never been to be a role model for young women or teenagers. #Quote by Tavi Gevinson
