Personality quotes by Sebastian Horsley
#1. I am a fraud. I have cobbled together my personality from hundreds of little bits. I am simultaneously the most genuine and the most artificial person you will ever meet. #Quote by Sebastian Horsley
Personality quotes by Lewis Grossberger
#2. ...it was not simply a matter of musical taste; whether you preferred the Beatles or [the Rolling] Stones said much about your personality and character. People who were happy, intelligent, well-adjusted, popular, clean, decent and punctual tended to be Beatles fans. Those who were evil, cretinous, scabby, drug-ridden, filthy, criminal perverts liked the Stones.
As for your author, I personally take no side in the controversy, remaining strictly neutral. #Quote by Lewis Grossberger
Personality quotes by Andrew Wylie
#3. I would say that I have an aspect of my personality which is that I have no personality. That's why I work as an agent. I have the assumed personality of the people I represent. I am like a sponge. #Quote by Andrew Wylie
Personality quotes by Lea Salonga
#4. I'm interested in just about anything that's right for my voice, and that's a good fit for my personality in the part as well. 'Evita' has always been a dream part for me, but it's really, really high to sing. I'd love to do Elphaba - heck, I'd even do Glinda. For me, I'd do anything to get into 'Wicked!' #Quote by Lea Salonga
Personality quotes by Malcolm De Chazal
#5. The chicken "understands" the dog, the dog can interpret the dove's cooing, the insect can fathom the lowing of the cow, and no matter how faraway the eagle may be, the cow can tell where it is. All audible animal messages are indifferently understood by all animals even though each one is monolingual at most. Could there be any more remarkable lesson in and example of understanding others without loss of personality? Most impenetrable to the thoughts of others are those who have no personal language. Most intolerant people hail from the land of self-ignorance. #Quote by Malcolm De Chazal
Personality quotes by Terence McKenna
#6. LSD is different. LSD is like psychoanalytical Drano. It's not a personality. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Personality quotes by Oscar Wilde
#7. Is insincerity such a terrible thing? I think not. It is merely a method by which we can multiply our personalities. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Personality quotes by Daniel Kahneman
#8. People are very good [at] thinking about agents. The mind is set really beautifully to think about agents. Agents have traits. Agents have behaviors. We understand agents. We form global impression of their personalities. We are really not very good at remembering sentences where the subject of the sentence is an abstract notion. #Quote by Daniel Kahneman
Personality quotes by Meg Rosoff
#9. I hate you, I thought, I hate you with your bloody nature-boy airs and your bloody forced-march voyage of bloody discovery. I wondered then if Finn's personality worked on everyone, or whether I had just the the right sort of mentality to fall in step with a self-centered hermit-boy crab murderer. #Quote by Meg Rosoff
Personality quotes by Julian Seifter
#10. You are not your illness. You have an individual story to tell. You have a name, a history, a personality. Staying yourself is part of the battle. #Quote by Julian Seifter
Personality quotes by John Key
#11. Your personality as the prime minister feeds through to what you emphasise, and what you don't, how you'll handle a situation - whether you've got the combination of intelligence or instincts to adapt and to make good decisions. #Quote by John Key
Personality quotes by Thomas Moore
#12. The point is not merely to succeed but to become a deeper, more complex, more mature person through your struggle. You allow the alchemy of your challenging journey to etch itself into your character, making you into a rich personality. Then whatever work you do will have the quality of your experience and your capacity to be ripened by it. Doing #Quote by Thomas Moore
Personality quotes by Sylvia Plath
#13. In Plaster

I shall never get out of this! There are two of me now:
This new absolutely white person and the old yellow one,
And the white person is certainly the superior one.
She doesn't need food, she is one of the real saints.

At the beginning I hated her, she had no personality --
She lay in bed with me like a dead body

And I was scared, because she was shaped just the way I was 


Only much whiter and unbreakable and with no complaints.
I couldn't sleep for a week, she was so cold.
I blamed her for everything, but she didn't answer.

I couldn't understand her stupid behavior!

When I hit her she held still, like a true pacifist.

Then I realized what she wanted was for me to love her:
She began to warm up, and I saw her advantages.



Without me, she wouldn't exist, so of course she was grateful.

I gave her a soul, I bloomed out of her as a rose

Blooms out of a vase of not very valuable porcelain,
And it was I who attracted everybody's attention,

Not her whiteness and beauty, as I had at first supposed.

I patronized her a little, and she lapped it up --

You could tell almost at once she had a slave mentality.



I didn't mind her waiting on me, and she adored it.

In the morning she woke me early, reflecting the sun

From her amazingly white torso, and I couldn't help but notice

Her tidiness and her calmness and her #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Personality quotes by Kate Millett
#14. As patriarchy enforces a temperamental imbalance of personality traits between the sexes, its educational institutions, segregated or co-educational, accept a cultural programing toward the generally operative division between "masculine" and "feminine" subject matter, assigning the humanities and certain social sciences (at least in their lower or marginal branches) to the female - and science and technology, the professions, business and engineering to the male. Of #Quote by Kate Millett
Personality quotes by Tracee Ellis Ross
#15. I was very shy growing up. My shyness manifested as a big personality, as opposed to the wallflower personality. It's been a journey getting comfortable in my skin. I've worked on trying to find the authentic balance between the bravado of my personality that was sort of a defense and the truth within my bigness. #Quote by Tracee Ellis Ross
Personality quotes by Michael Bassey Johnson
#16. You may be a person I admire, but you can't be a person that everyone admires. You are not everyone's favourite, but you are someone's favourite whether you like them or not. #Quote by Michael Bassey Johnson
Personality quotes by B.V. Lawson
#17. He wore his personality like a suit that was too tight. #Quote by B.V. Lawson
Personality quotes by Chris Cornell
#18. Due to irresolvable personality conflicts as well as musical differences, I am permanently leaving the band Audioslave. I wish the other three members nothing but the best in all of their future endeavours. #Quote by Chris Cornell
Personality quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#19. Variety, individuality, peculiarity, eccentricity and indeed crankiness are agreeable to the British mind; they make life more interesting. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Personality quotes by Rob Zombie
#20. I didn't grow up in a creative environment. It was very boring town, boring everything. You go to school and you basically hate all the other kids because you don't understand them or what it's all about. At the same time I'm happy for that because I became very withdrawn and when you become withdrawn you develop your own bizarre-o personality. #Quote by Rob Zombie
Personality quotes by Bill Courtney
#21. It is never too late to show true character. #Quote by Bill Courtney
Personality quotes by Jeffrey Fry
#22. A person with no enemies is a person with no personality. #Quote by Jeffrey Fry
Personality quotes by Robert Patterson
#23. You must have a theory," Bobby said. "Here it is. The killer has multiple personality disorder." Justine sighed. " And every one of his personalities is psychopathic. #Quote by Robert Patterson
Personality quotes by David DuChemin
#24. It's the difference between your wife's passport photograph and the portraits you took when you got
engaged. Both may have been created with similar technology, but what stands in that great gulf between them are the passion you have for your wife, the knowledge you have of her personality, and your willingness to use your craft, time, and energy to express that. One says, "She looks like this." The other says, "This is who she is to me. It's how I feel about her. See how amazing she is? #Quote by David DuChemin
Personality quotes by Suzette Boon
#25. Dissociative parts of the personality are not actually separate identities or personalities in one body, but rather parts of a single individual that are not yet functioning together in a smooth, coordinated, flexible way. P14 #Quote by Suzette Boon
Personality quotes by Adam Goucher
#26. I am not somebody who just likes to run. I am a runner. This is the difference between a pastime and a passion. I like to play golf, but I am not a golfer. I like to cook, but I am not a chef. I don't just like to run. I am a runner. It is a passion. It is part of who I am and is woven into the fabric of my personality, character, and psyche. #Quote by Adam Goucher
Personality quotes by Chloe Thurlow
#27. When you fall in love, everything is impregnated with new meaning. It is as if you suddenly have borderline personality disorder. #Quote by Chloe Thurlow
Personality quotes by Agatha Christie
#28. He was a man of between sixty and seventy. From a little distance he had the bland aspect of a philanthropist. His slightly bald head, his domed forehead, the smiling mouth that displayed a very white set of false teeth, all seemed to speak of a benevolent personality. Only the eyes belied this assumption. They were small, deep set and crafty. Not only that. As the man, making some remark to his young companion, glanced across the room, his gaze stopped on Poirot for a moment, and just for that second there was a strange malevolence, and unnatural tensity in the glance. Then #Quote by Agatha Christie
Personality quotes by Jury Nel
#29. Silliness is the perfect spice on any personality. #Quote by Jury Nel
Personality quotes by Stephen Tow
#30. Any local music scene at any point in time can be referred to as derivative of more well-known acts. The line separating influence from imitation is a blurry one. Very few artists are completely original; even great artists build upon what has occurred before, and add their personality and talent to create their own original expression. #Quote by Stephen Tow
Personality quotes by Tim Kreider
#31. What someone's lies reveal about them (aspirations to being an accomplished writer, fantasies of an exotic history and a cosmopolitan family) are always sadder than the fact of the lies themselves. These inventions illuminate the negative spaces of someone's self-image, their vanity and insecurities and most childish wishes, as we can infer from warped starlight the presence of a far vaster mass of dark matter. #Quote by Tim Kreider
Personality quotes by Andrew Pyper
#32. Grief has a colour. It has other characteristics, I know now, collectively forming a personality of sorts. An antagonizing figure that arrives in your life and refuses to leave or sit anywhere but next to you or stop whispering the name of the departed in your ear. #Quote by Andrew Pyper
Personality quotes by Albert Einstein
#33. The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Personality quotes by Mollie Marti
#34. Lineage, personality, and environment may shape you, but they do not define your full potential. #Quote by Mollie Marti
Personality quotes by Siddhartha Mukherjee
#35. The problem with racial discrimination, though, is not the inference of a person's race from their genetic characteristics. It is quite the opposite: it is the inference of a person's characteristics from their race. The question is not, can you, given an individual's skin color, hair texture, or language, infer something about their ancestry or origin. That is a question of biological systematics -- of lineage, taxonomy, of racial geography, of biological discrimination. Of course you can -- and genomics as vastly refined that inference. You can scan any individual genome and infer rather deep insights about a person's ancestry, or place of origin. But the vastly more controversial question is the converse: Given a racial identity -- African or Asian, say -- can you infer anything about an individual's characteristics: not just skin or hair color, but more complex features, such as intelligence, habits, personality, and aptitude? /I/ Genes can certainly tell us about race, but can race tell us anything about genes? /i/

To answer this question, we need to measure how genetic variation is distributed across various racial categories. Is there more diversity _within_ races or _between_ races? Does knowing that someone is of African versus European descent, say, allow us to refine our understanding of their genetic traits, or their personal, physical, or intellectual attributes in a meaningful manner? Or is there so much variation within Africans and Europeans that _i #Quote by Siddhartha Mukherjee
Personality quotes by Sheila Heti
#36. Alone, one feels the whole universe, and none of one's personality. #Quote by Sheila Heti
Personality quotes by Robert Bly
#37. If any help was going to arrive to lift me out of my misery, it would come from the dark side of my personality. #Quote by Robert Bly
Personality quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#38. Wish to deal with my most distinguished contemporaries, not personally or in a merely literary manner, but in relation to the real body of doctrine which they teach. I am not concerned with Mr. Rudyard Kipling as a vivid artist or a vigorous personality; I am concerned with him as a Heretic - that is to say, a man whose view of things has the hardihood to differ from mine. I am not concerned with Mr. Bernard Shaw as one of the most brilliant and one of the most honest men alive; I am concerned with him as a Heretic - that is to say, a man whose philosophy is quite solid, quite coherent, and quite wrong. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Personality quotes by E.T.A. Hoffmann
#39. As the priest is characterized by his cassock, so the smoker by his pipe. The way in which he holds it, raises it to his lips, and knocks out the ashes, reveals his personality, habits, passions, and even his thoughts. #Quote by E.T.A. Hoffmann
Personality quotes by Rick Moody
#40. The process of composition, messing around with paragraphs and trying to make really good prose, is hardwired into my personality. #Quote by Rick Moody
Personality quotes by Napoleon Hill
#41. Why? Personalities! Ninety-nine people out of every hundred who purchase life insurance policies do not know what is in their policies and, what seems more startling, do not seem to care. What they really purchase is the pleasing personality of some man or woman who knows the value of cultivating such a personality. Your #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Personality quotes by Julia Quinn
#42. Deep inside, she knew who she was, and that person was smart and kind and often even
funny, but somehow her personality always got lost somewhere between her heart and her
mouth, and she found herself saying the wrong thing or, more often, nothing at all. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Personality quotes by Thomas Hardy
#43. How strange and god-like was a composer's power, who from the grave could lead through sequences of emotion, which he alone had felt at first, a girl like her who had never heard of his name, and never would have a clue to his personality. #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Personality quotes by Margaret Clarkson
#44. Pain is pain and sorrow is sorrow. It hurts. It limits. It impoverishes. It isolates. It restrains. It works devastation deep within the personality. It circumscribes in a thousand different ways. There is nothing good about it. But the gifts God can give with it are the richest the human spirit can know. #Quote by Margaret Clarkson
Personality quotes by Flora Rheta Schreiber
#45. 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
Personality quotes by August Kubizek
#46. Externally Hitler sill appears a drifting character: he has failed at school, has no employment, has been rejected by the Academy, is in Vienna for no clearly stated purpose, lives on a pittance eked out by painting postcards. But behind this shiftless exterior Kubizek constructs what must have been there, although it was not apparent to casual acquaintances: the character of the man who, from these beginnings, without any other natural advantages besides his own personality, became the most powerful and terrible tyrant and conqueror of modern history. Here we see - along with the incipient monomania, the repetitive cliches, and the Wagnerian romanticism of his later years - the early evidence of that unbreakable will power, that extraordinary self-confidence. We see the penniless, unemployed, unemployable young Hitler, at sixteen, confidently rebuilding in his imagination the city of Linz, as he was afterwards to rebuild it in fact, and never for a moment doubting that he would one day carry out these improbable plans; we see him exercising over an elderly Austrian upholsterer that irresistible hypnotic power with which he was afterwards to seduce a whole nation; we see him, in Vienna, fortifying himself against a corrupt and purposeless society by adopting an iron asceticism, like some ancient crusader guarding himself against corruption in a pagan world. And then turning to detail, we see in Vienna, when Kubizek was closest to him, the working of Hitler's mind as it feels #Quote by August Kubizek
Personality quotes by Imran Shaikh
#47. She's the reason thousand smiles, heaven where she is .. #Quote by Imran Shaikh
Personality quotes by Mark Z. Danielewski
#48. I've come to believe errors, especially written errors, are often the only markers left by a solitary life: to sacrifice them is to lose the angles of personality, the riddle of a soul. In this case a very old soul. A very old riddle. #Quote by Mark Z. Danielewski
Personality quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#49. Personality is like a charioteer with two headstrong horses, each wanting to go in different directions. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Personality quotes by Kiersten White
#50. I jumped up, my hands in the air. "Yes!"
Lend laughed. "Okay, looks like I need to make a run to the grocery store. Do faeries hate wheat or white bread more, you think?"
"Get bread with raisins," I said. "Everyone hates raisins."
Jack was bouncing, obviously excited. "That's all we need, right?"
"We need Reth."
"No," Lend and Jack whined in unison.
"Come on, you two. Reth knows the Faerie Realms better than you do. Jack, you didn't see where the people were; it might take you a while to find them, and that's time we can't afford to lose. And Reth's getting worse; being there might give him more time."
Lend scowled, grabbing the car keys off the counter. "Fine. But I'm really getting tired of his stupid smirk and prissy clothes."
Jack nodded. "And his voice that sounds like it'd even taste good. Really, it's overkill. Best to have only a few absolutely perfect traits - for example, my hair and eyes and sparkling personality - so you don't overwhelm them."
"Aww, are you guys jealous of how pretty Reth is? That's kind of adorable."
"You know I could look exactly like him," Lend said, frowning darkly.
"Please for the love of all that is good and holy, never, ever wear Reth. That's the stuff of nightmares."
That brightened his face a bit and he left me with a lingering kiss and a promise to be back with every loaf of bread we could carry.
"Well, go find your stupid faerie boyfriend," Jack said, lying down on top of #Quote by Kiersten White
Personality quotes by Mark Brightlife
#51. The only way out consists of using a social mask.
This is why those under depression will smile more as well as make efforts to please and entertain compared to anyone else.
...
If they could hide in public, and they do hide in other ways, both psychological and physical.
The psychological feeling of being trapped comes afterwards from the need to have social life, and that's when the anti-social personality starts developing furthermore. #Quote by Mark Brightlife
Personality quotes by Havelock Ellis
#52. Philosophy is a purely personal matter. A genuine philosopher's credo is the outcome of a single complex personality; it cannot be transferred. No two persons, if sincere, can have the same philosophy. #Quote by Havelock Ellis
Personality quotes by Hannah Storm
#53. Every burn on my body has had its own different personality. And all of them needed different things. #Quote by Hannah Storm
Personality quotes by Boris Pasternak
#54. And then the two basic ideals of modern man- without them he is unthinkable- the idea of free personality and the idea of life as sacrafice #Quote by Boris Pasternak
Personality quotes by Bob Peterson
#55. I've owned a lot of dogs in my life - Marcela, Rusty, Petey Pup, Precious, Rosy and Ava. Each were in love with life's simple pleasures, but being people in dog suits, as they seem to be, they each had a defined personality! #Quote by Bob Peterson
Personality quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#56. Throughout the lifetime, the entire neurobiology of a human being goes through relentless perplexing transformations. These sexually dimorphic neurobiological changes create a person's personality. These unique makeovers of the male and female biology hold the key to a sustainable romantic relationship. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Personality quotes by Steve Toutonghi
#57. But think about this, maybe even though there are infinite versions of you, maybe every single one of them is an asshole. #Quote by Steve Toutonghi
Personality quotes by Robert J. White
#58. Personality is a mask you believe in. #Quote by Robert J. White
Personality quotes by Samora Machel
#59. Personalities and fame pass; the revolution must remain. #Quote by Samora Machel
Personality quotes by Daria Snadowsky
#60. Amy is so correct that a good personality can make a guy better-looking. #Quote by Daria Snadowsky
Personality quotes by Anne Frank
#61. I wish I could ask God to give
me another personality, one that doesn't antagonize everyone. But that's impossible. I'm stuck with the character I was born with, and yet I'm sure I'm not a bad person. I do my best to please everyone, more than they'd ever suspect in a million years. When I'm upstairs, I try to laugh it off because I don't want them to see my troubles. #Quote by Anne Frank
Personality quotes by Alexis Carrel
#62. Hard conditions of life are indispensable to bringing out the best in human personality. #Quote by Alexis Carrel
Personality quotes by Michael Leunig
#63. Murk can be described as an enfeebled fog with a personality disorder; it is more troubled than ethereal, sulking moodily over our lives at the end of the day. #Quote by Michael Leunig
Personality quotes by James Dashner
#64. Thomas thought Chuck's personality had gone from mildly irritating to intolerable. #Quote by James Dashner
Personality quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#65. Money doesn't buy taste, personality, or common decency. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Personality quotes by Kiera Van Gelder
#66. Accepting a psychiatric diagnosis is like a religious conversion. It's an adjustment in cosmology, with all its accompanying high priests, sacred texts, and stories of religion. And I am, for better or worse, an instant convert. #Quote by Kiera Van Gelder
Personality quotes by Ann Charles
#67. Ray was looking extra Oompa-Loompa-like this morning with his fake tan a seemingly brighter shade of orange than usual. His brown hair matched his personality - slick and greasy. "Morning, #Quote by Ann Charles
Personality quotes by Pope John Paul II
#68. The body reveals the person. This phrase tells us all there is to know about the body. Science can examine our flesh in minute detail, down to our cells and even our DNA. But no amount of scientific exploration can replace the truth that our bodies reveal us, giving form to our innermost being and unique personality. Our bodies are sacramental - they make the invisible visible. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Personality quotes by Simon Sebag Montefiore
#69. Power is always personal: any study of a Western democratic leader today reveals that, even in a transparent system with its short periods in office, personalities shape administrations. Democratic leaders often rule through trusted retainers instead of official ministers. In any court, power is as fluid as human personality. #Quote by Simon Sebag Montefiore
Personality quotes by Martha Wainwright
#70. I wanted to be heard myself, which is hard in a household of people who were very showy. It forced me to find myself and define a personality and a way of being different, and that's a thing that's going to help me to survive in a world of many people playing the guitar. #Quote by Martha Wainwright
Personality quotes by Joanna Jordan
#71. She was full of flaws which with time would evolve into full-blown personality defects. #Quote by Joanna Jordan
Personality quotes by Carl Jung
#72. So often among so-called "primitives" one comes across spiritual personalities who immediately inspire respect, as though they were the fully matured products of an undisturbed fate. #Quote by Carl Jung
Personality quotes by Sarah Addison Allen
#73. Josey shook her head, thinking, if Della Lee were a candy, she would be a SweeTart. Not the hard kind that broke your teeth, the chewy kind, the kind you had to work on and mull over, your eyes watering and your lips turning up into a smile you didn't want to give. #Quote by Sarah Addison Allen
Personality quotes by Genie Francis
#74. I have an appearance on a new TV show called 'Bar Karma' on Current TV. I had the most fun ever making this episode. I play someone with a multiple personality, and I think my fans will be surprised and get a real giggle out of it. It's a new model for TV in that it is interactive with the community. #Quote by Genie Francis
Personality quotes by R.L. Stine
#75. I have a cheat-sheet for each one of my characters about their personality, the way they look, etc. So there is no possible way that I could have writer's block. #Quote by R.L. Stine
Personality quotes by Jaggi Vasudev
#76. Your personality is something that you created. Once you are aware of that, you could create it whichever way you want. #Quote by Jaggi Vasudev
Personality quotes by Tyson Fury
#77. What personality does it take to drive a car around a track 100 times or hit a ball back and forth. That's not very personality is it? #Quote by Tyson Fury
Personality quotes by Liya Kebede
#78. It is important for me that I represent a brand that reflects my personality. #Quote by Liya Kebede
Personality quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#79. Warn you that my friend is a compound personality, and therefore it is difficult to blame him as an individual. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Personality quotes by King Hussein I
#80. Personality is reduced and deformed with depleted thoughts and stagnant mind. #Quote by King Hussein I
Personality quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#81. What offended you this time? His charming manner? His too broad smile? His well-groomed appearance?"
"I don't like him," she said with her usual maddening half-smile.
"Don't like him! He's fashionable and handsome, with fortune to spare-"
"So is my reticule. Unfortunately, it also has more personality, and nearly as much intelligence. #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries
Personality quotes by Tituss Burgess
#82. There's a bit of a difference in the way he sounds. Samuel E. Wright lent his voice and personality to the animated film with his booming voice. I have a high-tenor voice. Instead, I have to figure out a way to convince the audience to come along with me and accept this new texture and tambour to the way Sebastian sounds. I have a great dialect coach. #Quote by Tituss Burgess
Personality quotes by Rita Rudner
#83. Every audience has a personality. Some of them don't have the best personalities, but you're on a date with them for an hour and a half, so you just make the best of it. #Quote by Rita Rudner
Personality quotes by Gary Zukav
#84. Each time you choose not to act on a frightened part of your personality, you create authentic power - and you grow spiritually. The frightened parts of your personality come less frequently and with less intensity, and the loving parts fill more and more of your consciousness. #Quote by Gary Zukav
Personality quotes by Christmas Humphreys
#85. We will not read of that which hurts our pride or fears or 'feelings'. We forget, or gloss over, or excuse, an experience which injured the tentacles of our personality. We forget the pscyhiatrist's definition of a neurosis as 'refused pain'. In the same way we escape from mental pain. We refuse to believe what we do not like. #Quote by Christmas Humphreys
Personality quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#86. Daisy Bowman, Lillian's young sister, had an out-sized personality that belied her small, slight frame. Idealistic and possessed of a decidedly whimsical bent, she devoured romantic novels populated with rogues and villains. However, Daisy's elfin facade concealed a shrewd intelligence that most people tended to overlook. She was fair-skinned and dark-haired, with eyes the color of spiced gingerbread... mischievous eyes with long, spiky lashes. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Personality quotes by Julia Kristeva
#87. Pregnancy = "the slow, difficult, and delightful apprenticeship in attentiveness, gentleness, forgetting oneself. The ability to succeed in this path without masochism and without annihilating one's affective, intellectual, and professional personality - such would seem to be the stakes to be won through guiltless maternity. #Quote by Julia Kristeva
Personality quotes by Richard J. Foster
#88. One remarkable feature of the devotional masters is the incredible sense of uniform witness in the midst of such diverse personalities ... and the necessity of Christian simplicity is one of their most consistent themes. #Quote by Richard J. Foster
Personality quotes by Jason Bateman
#89. 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
Personality quotes by James P. Carse
#90. Of course, immortality of the soul-- the bare soul, cleansed of any personality traces-- is rarely what is desired in the yearning for immortality... More often what one intends to preserve is a public personage, a permanently veiled selfhood. #Quote by James P. Carse
Personality quotes by Sofia Vergara
#91. Yes, I'm blonde. When I started as an actor, because of the accent and my body and my personality, it was not what the stereotype of the Latina woman in Hollywood is, so they didn't know where to put me. The blond hair wasn't matching. The moment I put my hair dark, it was better for my work. #Quote by Sofia Vergara
Personality quotes by Debra Holland
#92. With the way Bertha can cook and her good-natured personality, she'll be married in no time. We'll see to it!" She cast a speculative glance around. "Why I see ten available men within a hundred feet of us. ... Bertha will manage just fine…" I hope. #Quote by Debra Holland
Personality quotes by Gary Zukav
#93. You are only as powerful as that for which you stand. Do you stand for more money in the bank and a bigger house? Do you stand for an attractive mate? Do you stand for imposing your way of thinking upon others? These are the stands of the personality seeking to satisfy its wants. Do you stand for perfection, for the beauty and compassion of each soul? Do you stand for forgiveness and humbleness? These are the stands of the personality that has aligned itself with its soul. This is the position of a truly powerful Personality. #Quote by Gary Zukav
Personality quotes by Marissa Meyer
#94. Iko ducked her head. "When we saw the feed of you jumping off that ledge, I was so scared I thought my wiring was going to catch fire. And I thought, I will do anything to make sure she's all right." She kicked at a pile of stray screws on the carpet. "I guess some programming never goes away, no matter how evolved a personality chip gets>"
Licking some jam from her fingertips, Cinder grinned. "That's not programming, you wing nut. That's friendship."
Iko's eyes brightened. "Maybe you're right. #Quote by Marissa Meyer
Personality quotes by Lynne Truss
#95. What one discovers in life, I find, is that one's personality defects don't come and go. #Quote by Lynne Truss
Personality quotes by Britney Spears
#96. I'm a hometown girl, and my personality at home is the opposite of the performer in me. But then, when I'm home and haven't done anything for a while, I get really itchy and nervous and weird-feeling. #Quote by Britney Spears

#98. A man who despises himself so much that the only way he can alleviate his feelings of inferiority is by stomping down his wife's personality with a daily stream of nasty jibes. #Quote by Liane Moriarty
Personality quotes by Charles A. Beard
#99. The functions of the president are prescribed by the Constitution, but his real achievements are not set by the letter of the law. They are determined rather by his personality, the weight of his influence, his capacity for managing men, and the strength and effectiveness of the party forces behind him. #Quote by Charles A. Beard
Personality quotes by Kim Gordon
#100. I am basically a shy person, so performing sometimes helps me focus - having all those people concentrate their attention on you. I don't see it so much as becoming another person onstage; it's more exploring a different side of your personality. #Quote by Kim Gordon
Personality quotes by Daniel Woodrell
#101. I'm very attracted to poetry for all the reasons someone likes poetry. The notion of compression seems to fit my personality. #Quote by Daniel Woodrell
Personality quotes by Oscar Wilde
#102. I turned half-way round and saw Dorian Gray for the first time. When our eyes met, I felt that I was growing pale. A curious sensation of terror came over me. I knew that I had come face to face with some one whose mere personality was so fascinating that, if I allowed it to do so, it would absorb my whole nature, my whole soul, my very art itself. I did not want any external influence in my life. You know yourself, Harry, how independent I am by nature. I have always been my own master; had at least always been so, till I met Dorian Gray. Then--but #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Personality quotes by Deyth Banger
#103. If books/stories and movies are going to be judge as for the personality of people so... Doctor Sleep and Nightmares and Dreamscapes... should make Stephen King the world top1 insane person, ever lived in the world. #Quote by Deyth Banger
Personality quotes by Sanober Khan
#104. I am a baby, I am a child, I am the innocent wonder in my eyes

I am a glimpse, I am a sign, of someone I can be, someone I might

I am not one, I am not two, but I am a million things entwined

I am a piece, I am a slice, strung together by the yarns of time. #Quote by Sanober Khan
Personality quotes by Joe Murray
#105. The friend that I based Heffer on was adopted, and it all played into his total personality. #Quote by Joe Murray
Personality quotes by K.M. Shea
#106. I agonized over marrying him because I knew he was cunning and ruthless. I never thought I would ever be thankful for the twists in his personality. #Quote by K.M. Shea
Personality quotes by Mira Sorvino
#107. There's a side of my personality that goes completely against the educated & serious woman. The side who wants to be a pin-up girl in garages all across America! #Quote by Mira Sorvino
Personality quotes by Stephen Covey
#108. I'm convinced that we can write and live our own scripts more than most people will acknowledge. I also know the price that must be paid. It's a real struggle to do it. It requires visualization and affirmation. It involves living a life of integrity, starting with making and keeping promises, until the whole human personality the senses, the thinking, the feeling, and the intuition are ultimately integrated and harmonized. #Quote by Stephen Covey
Personality quotes by Wayne Huizenga
#109. I really would not change anything. Have a passion for what you do, work hard, have great people with good personalities, enjoy the ride. #Quote by Wayne Huizenga
Personality quotes by Shomprakash Sinha Roy
#110. Here's the thing - in this damned century, you'll meet a lot of people who do a lot of things. What's funny is the fact that the most desirable attributes of these people are nothing but developed and cultured thoughts. And these things come naturally to people who shine bright. The other guys just try to ape these thoughts, in an embarrassing attempt to recreate some of that magic. Sadly,- what looks beautiful as a natural quotient can be extremely funny and disgusting when replicated manually. Stop replicating feelings; else you'll turn into one of those duplicate personalities. They're wannabes. You don't have to become one! #Quote by Shomprakash Sinha Roy
Personality quotes by Tarryn Fisher
#111. Leah: 'How do I get him to come home?'
Sam: 'Get a new personality and learn to shut the fuck up. #Quote by Tarryn Fisher
Personality quotes by Elizabeth Fishel
#112. From the psychological jousting between sisters in the early family arena emerge the first tentative boundaries of their personalities. #Quote by Elizabeth Fishel
Personality quotes by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko
#113. The plant and animal kingdoms (excluding humans) offered some pleasant surprises. Organisms from these realms are much simpler to figure out. Their behaviours are not muddied by personality factors or flawed belief systems. If an insect smells like a fart, you can be sure that the stench has a genetic basis. It is neither trying to make a lofty point, nor is it suffering from an inferiority complex. #Quote by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko
Personality quotes by Katharine Hamnett
#114. The fashion industry tends to attract people with serious personality defects. They just want to be rich and famous. But at some point you have to decide: Are you going to mindlessly go the easy way or are you going to go the ethical way? #Quote by Katharine Hamnett
Personality quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#115. Every person is the master of his or her own destiny. What we think about alters our character. Our character organizes our personality, and our personality scripts how successfully we interact with other people and respond to a changing environment. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Personality quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#116. When you choose your friends, don't be short-changed by choosing personality over character. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham

Personality quotes by Stevie Ray Vaughan
#120. All the Strats have personalities of their own and feel completely different. #Quote by Stevie Ray Vaughan
Personality quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#121. Americans share an affinity to establish a distinctive identity and know one's self in a physiological, psychological, and spiritual sense, and we strive to attain self-actualization, self-realization, and/or bliss. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Personality quotes by Sandra Tsing Loh
#122. Our entire personality, our energy level, and how we cope is hormonal. #Quote by Sandra Tsing Loh
Personality quotes by Thomas Mann
#123. Very likely even his splendid coloration is a little too marked and would be objected to by those who put the laws of breeding above the value of personality, for it would appear that the classic pointer type should have a coat of one colour or at most with spots of a different one, but
never stripes. #Quote by Thomas Mann
Personality quotes by Janet Fitch
#124. The stroke of the brush was the evidence of the gesture of your arm. A record of your existence, the quality of your personality, your touch, pressure, the authority of your movement. #Quote by Janet Fitch
Personality quotes by J. Michael Straczynski
#125. On a purely personal level, it's very strange, because as a kid, Superman informed my personality. Now I've been given the job of forming Superman's personality and, in some ways, drawing on my own background. #Quote by J. Michael Straczynski
Personality quotes by Thorstein Veblen
#126. Only individuals with an aberrant temperament can in the long run retain their self-esteem in the face of the disesteem of their fellows. #Quote by Thorstein Veblen
Personality quotes by Gautama Buddha
#127. Confusion conditions activity, which conditions consciousness, which conditions embodied personality, which conditions sensory experiences, which conditions impact, which conditions mood, which conditions craving, which conditions clinging, which conditions becoming, which conditions birth, which conditions aging and death. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Personality quotes by Jonathan Stroud
#128. What was it that drew you back? My marvellous personality, I suppose? Or my sparkling conversation? #Quote by Jonathan Stroud
Personality quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#129. I lately met with an old volume from a London bookshop, containing the Greek Minor Poets, and it was a pleasure to read once moreonly the words Orpheus, Linus, Musaeus,
those faint poetic sounds and echoes of a name, dying away on the ears of us modern men; and those hardly more substantial sounds, Mimnermus, Ibycus, Alcaeus, Stesichorus, Menander. They lived not in vain. We can converse with these bodiless fames without reserve or personality. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Personality quotes by E.M. Forster
#130. And in time there will come a generation that has got beyond facts, beyond impressions, a generation absolutely colourless, a generation seraphically free from taint of personality, which will see the French Revolution not as it happened, nor as they would like it to have happened, but as it would have happened, had it taken place in the days of the Machine. #Quote by E.M. Forster
Personality quotes by Josh Hutcherson
#131. I like both athletic girls and girly girls. It depends on their personality. I like girls who can go out and play sports with me and throw the football around, but you don't want a girl who's too much tougher than you. I like brainy girls who can respond to what I'm saying. #Quote by Josh Hutcherson
Personality quotes by Billie Jean King
#132. I would love to be a player today. I had the right personality for it. #Quote by Billie Jean King
Personality quotes by Michael Crichton
#133. The second reason to abandon environmental religion is more pressing. Religions think they know it all, but the unhappy truth of the environment is that we are dealing with incredibly complex, evolving systems, and we usually are not certain how best to proceed. Those who are certain are demonstrating their personality type, or their belief system, not the state of their knowledge. #Quote by Michael Crichton
Personality quotes by Mark Twain
#134. We must look for our own blame to find our own personality. #Quote by Mark Twain
Personality quotes by Alan Moore
#135. I've had years of bizarre hallucinogenic magical experiences in which I believed I had communicated with entities that may well have been disassociated parts of my own personality or conceivably some independent entity of a metaphysical nature. Both would seem equally interesting. #Quote by Alan Moore
Personality quotes by Ayn Rand
#136. Love is a response to values. It is with a person's sense of life that one falls in love - with that essential sum, that fundamental stand or way of facing existence, which is the essence of a personality. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Personality quotes by Louise Rosenblatt
#137. The reader brings to the work personality traits, memories of past events, present needs and preoccupations, a particular mood of the moment and a particular physical condition. These and many other elements in a never-to-be-duplicated combination determine his response to the text. #Quote by Louise Rosenblatt
Personality quotes by Paul Auster
#138. Nevertheless, this anger was inside him - I believe constantly. Like the house that was well ordered and yet falling apart from within, the man himself was calm, almost supernatural in his imperturbability, and yet prey to a roiling, unstoppable force of fury within. All his life he strove to avoid a confrontation with this force, nurturing a kind of automatic behavior that would allow him to pass to the side of it. Reliance on fixed routines freed him from the necessity of looking into himself when decisions had to be made; the cliche was always quick to come to his lips ("A beautiful baby. Good luck with it") instead of words he had gone out and looked for. All this tended to flatten him out as a personality. But at the same time, it was also what saved him, the thing that allowed him to live. To the extent that he was able to live #Quote by Paul Auster
Personality quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#139. Love is the only way to grasp another human being in the innermost core of his personality. No one can become fully aware of the very essence of another human being unless he loves him. By his love he is enabled to see the essential traits and features in the beloved person; and even more, he sees that which is potential in him, which is not yet actualized but yet ought to be actualized. Furthermore, by his love, the loving person enables the beloved person to actualize these potentialities. By making him aware of what he can be and of what he should become, he makes these potentialities come true. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Personality quotes by Laurell K. Hamilton
#140. It is true, perhaps, that your beauty is not a flashy beauty, as is Asher's, or Jean-Claude's, or even your Nathaniel's, but it is beauty nonetheless. Perhaps the more precious, for it grows not at the first sight of the eye, but a little more each time one speaks with you or watches you move so commandingly into a situation, or watches the truth in your eyes when you say that you are not beautiful, and I realize that you mean it. That you are not being humble, or playing silly games, you simply do not see yourself."

"See, that's not beauty, that's pretty with a personality that you like."

"But do you not see, Anita, that there is beauty that hits the eye like a bolt of lighting, that burns and sears and blinds. It is more disaster than pleasure. But yours, yours is a beauty that lulls one into comfort, into not protecting one's eyes from the light, then one night you realize that the moon, too, has its beauty. #Quote by Laurell K. Hamilton
Personality quotes by Sonam Kapoor
#141. It's difficult for me to really temper my personality, but I am trying to be a little more sensible about it. If I really lose my temper, I go to my room and scream and shout, but I try not to lose it on people any more. I've never said something mean just like that. I've only said things in retaliation. #Quote by Sonam Kapoor
Personality quotes by Christopher Buehlman
#142. I assume you are the sort of person who would go backstage after the opera in hopes of hearing the prima donna crying on the telephone, or walking in on the baritone fellating the basso buffo. I respect that-I was always the same way myself-though I suspect you are not very happy. Happiness is the province of those who ask few questions. I remember, even before this was visited upon me, how I envied those who eagerly did what they were told: those who married without complaint at father's behest; those who looked up rather than sideways in church; those, in short, who honestly believed in God, good kings, and righteous wars. #Quote by Christopher Buehlman
Personality quotes by Sarah Prager
#143. 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
Personality quotes by Ludwig Feuerbach
#144. Man distinguishes himself from Nature. This distinction of his is his God: the distinguishing of God from Nature is nothing else than the distinguishing of man from Nature. … [S]peculations and controversies concerning the personality or impersonality of God are therefore fruitless, idle, uncritical … ; … they in truth speculate only concerning themselves, only in the interest of their own instinct of self-preservation[.] #Quote by Ludwig Feuerbach
Personality quotes by Dominic Mann
#145. 85 percent of a person's financial success is due to skills in "human engineering," or in other words, personality and ability to communicate, negotiate and lead. #Quote by Dominic Mann
Personality quotes by Hilary Rhoda
#146. I rarely use a stylist, and enjoy choosing my outfit on my own. If you know what suits your body and personality then your individual style emerges naturally. #Quote by Hilary Rhoda
Personality quotes by Bethany Crandell
#147. There's no right or wrong way to hurt. Everybody does it their own way. It's how we respond to pain that tells the kind of person we are. #Quote by Bethany Crandell
Personality quotes by Diplo
#148. To me, rap music is bigger than who's the coolest rapper, the biggest rapper. It's everything about your personality. #Quote by Diplo
Personality quotes by C.S. Lewis
#149. And he had been very badly treated by a girl too. He had thought her a really civilised and adult personality, and then she had unexpectedly revealed that she was a mass of bourgeois prejudices and monogamic instincts. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Personality quotes by Rajneesh
#150. The ego and the personality have to be dropped, then you will find individuality arising ... a feeling of uniqueness. Yes, you are unique. Everybody else is also unique. In this world only unique people exist, so comparison is just stupid, because you alone are like yourself. There is nobody like you, so how to compare? #Quote by Rajneesh
Personality quotes by Taylor Swift
#151. Mom is a planner, an organizer. She's very strong and practical. She's the person that'll tell me if I ever start to change my personality. The balance of the two of them created my personality. #Quote by Taylor Swift
Personality quotes by Marsha Linehan
#152. I honestly didn't realize at the time that I was dealing with myself. But I suppose it's true that I developed a therapy that provides the things I needed for so many years and never got. #Quote by Marsha Linehan
Personality quotes by Kevin Craft
#153. Being a nerd is about being so uncool that embracing one's inner weirdo and showcasing that personality to the world without fear of repercussion is the only tenable path for achieving peace of mind. It involves dropping all pretense and attempts to construct a socially normal personality. It's about letting the kooky shine through. #Quote by Kevin Craft
Personality quotes by Ron Currie Jr.
#154. Because she hides. She doesn't realize it, I don't think, but she hides. Sometimes right in front of you. She can be sitting across from you at a table in a nice dining room somewhere and the expression on her face changes suddenly and she disappears, is in a very real and unmistakable way no longer there. You always find yourself reaching for her an instant too late, and grasping at smoke. #Quote by Ron Currie Jr.
Personality quotes by Adrienne Rich
#155. Our personalities seem dangerously to blur and overlap with our mother's; and, in a desperate attempt to know where mother ends and daughter begins, we perform radical surgery. #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Personality quotes by Steve Ovett
#156. You find out a lot about yourself through athletics. If you're cut out to be a winner or a failure or a quitter, athletics will bring it out of you. You're always stripping yourself down to the bones of your personality. And sometimes you just get a glimpse of the kind of talent you've been given. Sometimes I run and I don't even feel the effort of running. I don't even feel the ground. I'm just drifting. Incredible feeling. All the agony and frustration, they're all justified by one moment like that. #Quote by Steve Ovett
Personality quotes by William Lyon Phelps
#157. The principle of happiness should be like the principle of virtue: it should not be dependent of things, but be a part of personality [and character]. #Quote by William Lyon Phelps
Personality quotes by Samantha Young
#158. I doubt even you can begin to understand the depths of her. #Quote by Samantha Young
Personality quotes by Monjyoti Bhattacharyya
#159. My own personality changed drastically in a span of 3-4 years just by changing the environment I was living in and by taking conscious daily actions. #Quote by Monjyoti Bhattacharyya
Personality quotes by Ashly Lorenzana
#160. People leave imprints on our lives, shaping who we become in much the same way that a symbol is pressed into the page of a book to tell you who it comes from. Dogs, however, leave paw prints on our lives and our souls, which are as unique as fingerprints in every way. #Quote by Ashly Lorenzana
Personality quotes by Marlene Dietrich
#161. I'm not an actress, I'm a personality. #Quote by Marlene Dietrich
Personality quotes by Katy B
#162. The nice way to meet a guy is through getting to know them first. Then you can really judge their personality. What I can't take is meeting someone, going on a date, getting to know them, then finding out they're a complete psycho - 'Great, I've just wasted all this time on you!' #Quote by Katy B
Personality quotes by Caleb Deschanel
#163. The great photographers of life - like Diane Arbus and Walker Evans and Robert Frank - all must have had some special quality: a personality of nurturing and non-judgment that frees the subjects to reveal their most intimate reality. It really is what makes a great photographer, every bit as much as understanding composition and lighting. #Quote by Caleb Deschanel
Personality quotes by David Letterman
#164. If it wasn't for coffee, I'd have no discernible personality at all. #Quote by David Letterman
Personality quotes by Dale Carnegie
#165. About 15 percent of one's financial success is due to one's technical knowledge and about 85 percent is due to skill in human engineering - to personality and the ability to lead people. #Quote by Dale Carnegie
Personality quotes by Marcel Proust
#166. Similarly the men who produce works of genius are not those who live in the most delicate atmosphere, whose conversation is most brilliant, or their culture broadest, but those who have had the power, ceasing in a moment to live only for themselves, to make use of their personality as of a mirror. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Personality quotes by Richard M. Nixon
#167. Don't try to take on a new personality; it doesn't work. #Quote by Richard M. Nixon
Personality quotes by Nora Roberts
#168. Children give a house its personality, you know, more than its decorating. They leave their mark on it. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Personality quotes by Paul Auster
#169. In the beginning, everything was alive. The smallest objects were endowed with beating hearts, and even the clouds had names. Scissors could walk, telephones and teapots were first cousins, eyes and eyeglasses were brothers. The face of the clock was a human face, each pea in your bowl had a different personality, and the grille on the front of your parents' car was a grinning mouth with many teeth. Pens were airships. Coins were flying saucers. The branches of trees were arms. Stones could think, and God was everywhere. #Quote by Paul Auster
Personality quotes by Cyril Connolly
#170. We are captivated by the feminine shadow of the self we might have been; in my case by that counterpart of the romantic writer who should have had the courage to reject society and to accept poverty for the sake of the development of his personality. Now when I see such beings I hope that I can somehow be freed from my shortcomings by union with them. Hence the recurrent longing to forsake external reality for a dream and to plunge into a ritual flight...I am attracted by those who mysteriously hold out a promise of the integrity which I have lost. #Quote by Cyril Connolly
Personality quotes by Rhys Darby
#171. Back in the day, Barry Crump not only had these stories that talked about that kind of rustic personality, but also, he spoke volumes, I guess, of the relationships in the stories that he told in these books. #Quote by Rhys Darby
Personality quotes by M. Scott Peck
#172. Specifically, one whose life is ruled and dictated by dependency needs suffers from a psychiatric disorder to which we ascribe the diagnostic name "passive dependent personality disorder." It is perhaps the most common of all psychiatric disorders.
People with this disorder, passive dependent people, are so busy seeking to be loved that they have no energy left to love. They are like starving people, scrounging wherever they can for food, and with no food of their own to give to others. It is as if within them they have an inner emptiness, a bottomless pit crying out to be filled but which can never be completely filled. They never feel "full-filled" or have a sense of completeness. They always feel "a part of me is missing." They tolerate loneliness very poorly. Because of their lack of wholeness they have no real sense of identity, and they define themselves solely by their relationships. #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Personality quotes by Raymond Chandler
#173. There are people who can write their memoirs with a reasonable amount of honesty, and there are people who simply cannot take themselves seriously enough. I think I might be the first to admit that the sort of reticence which prevents a man from exploiting his own personality is really an inverted sort of egotism. #Quote by Raymond Chandler
Personality quotes by Peter Salovey
#174. I think in the coming decade we will see well-conducted research demonstrating that emotional skills and competencies predict positive outcomes at home with one's family, in school, and at work. The real challenge is to show that emotional intelligence matters over-and-above psychological constructs that have been measured for decades like personality and IQ. I believe that emotional intelligence holds this promise. #Quote by Peter Salovey
Personality quotes by Joseph Campbell
#175. The child's world is alert and alive, governed by rules of response and command, not by physical laws: a portentous continuum of consciousness, endowed with purpose and intent, either resistant or responsive to the child itself.

This infantile notion of a world governed by moral rather than physical laws, kept under control by a superordinated parental personality instead of impersonal physical forces, and oriented to the weal and woe of man, is an illusion that dominates men's thoughts all over the world.

The sense then, of this world as an undifferentiated continuum of simultaneously subjective and objective experience (Participation), which is all alive (Animism), and which was created by a superior being (Artificialism), may be said to constitute the frame of reference of all childhood experience no matter where in the world.

No small wonder then, that the above Three Principles are precisely those most represented in the mythologies and religious systems of the whole world. #Quote by Joseph Campbell
Personality quotes by Michael Kiwanuka
#176. The main thing in making your own music is that it's an expression of someone's personality and being. That's what people want to hear, and you can't really teach that - that's just something that comes out. Teaching just hones that. #Quote by Michael Kiwanuka
Personality quotes by Glen Duncan
#177. Naturally torturers giggle while they work: The body's dumb obedience to physics (pull hard enough and this comes off, squeeze tight enough and that pops out) against which the nuances of the victim's personality count for nothing has in it one of the roots of comedy - the spirit's subservience to the flesh. You can cut a head off and shove it in a bag, stick it on a pole, play volleyball or footie with it. Hilarious, among other things. #Quote by Glen Duncan
Personality quotes by Susan Cain
#178. The one and only personality trait the effective ones I have encountered did have in common was something they did not have: they had little or no 'charisma' and little use either for the term or what it signifies." Supporting Drucker's claim, Brigham Young University management professor Bradley Agle studied the CEOs of 128 major companies and found that those considered charismatic by their top executives had bigger salaries but not better corporate performance.

Personality quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#179. Humility is the greatest shaper of souls and crafter of character, for it wipes away all the grandiose things that we spend so much of our lives pretending to be, so that we can spend all of our lives being the exceptional person that we were actually created to be. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Personality quotes by Tracy Alderman
#180. It's one thing to have your partner tell you he or she has multiple personalities, and it's another to walk in on your partner and find him or her sitting on the bedroom floor, speaking in a child like voice, having a tea party with stuffed animals. #Quote by Tracy Alderman
Personality quotes by Alan Sillitoe
#181. Items that have become part of me, foliage that has grown to conceal the bare stem of my real personality, what I was like before I ever saw these books, or any book at all, come to that. #Quote by Alan Sillitoe
Personality quotes by Leo Baeck
#182. A tradition is entrusted to human personalities which it reflects. What a man recalls as a word or an experience of the master is, even against his will and without his knowledge, colored by his own personality and character, by the littleness and the greatness in him, by his hopes, his longing, and his faith. #Quote by Leo Baeck
Personality quotes by Nenia Campbell
#183. We're so concerned with the idea of what we ought to be that we fail to take into account the things that make us who we really are. #Quote by Nenia Campbell
Personality quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#184. And as I close this chaotic volume I open again the strange small book from which all Christianity came; and I am again haunted by a kind of confirmation. The tremendous figure which fills the Gospels towers in this respect, as in every other, above all the thinkers who ever thought themselves tall. His pathos was natural, almost casual. The Stoics, ancient and modern, were proud of concealing their tears. He never concealed His tears; He showed them plainly on His open face at any daily sight, such as the far sight of His native city. Yet He concealed something. Solemn supermen and imperial diplomatists are proud of restraining their anger. He never restrained His anger. He flung furniture down the front steps of the Temple, and asked men how they expected to escape the damnation of Hell. Yet He restrained something. I say it with reverence; there was in that shattering personality a thread that must be called shyness. There was something that He hid from all men when He went up a mountain to pray. There was something that He covered constantly by abrupt silence or impetuous isolation. There was some one thing that was too great for God to show us when He walked upon our earth; and I have sometimes fancied that it was His mirth. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Personality quotes by Deyth Banger
#185. Every pill change your personality, as much you take as more you become different character. #Quote by Deyth Banger
Personality quotes by Ken MacLeod
#186. Falling in love indicated that your genes were complementary to those of the loved one. It told you nothing about when your personalities and sexualities were compatible. #Quote by Ken MacLeod
Personality quotes by Lewis Mumford
#187. What was once called the objective world is a sort of Rorschach ink blot, into which each culture, each system of science and religion, each type of personality, reads a meaning only remotely derived from the shape and color of the blot itself #Quote by Lewis Mumford
Personality quotes by Pieter Geyl
#188. Imagination plays too important a role in the writing of history, and what is imagination but the projection of the author's personality. #Quote by Pieter Geyl

Personality quotes by Lewis Mumford
#191. It was Stieglitz's endeavor ... to translate the unseen world of tactile values as they develop between lovers not merely into the sexual act but the entire relation of two personalities - to translate this world of blind touch into sight. #Quote by Lewis Mumford
Personality quotes by Lauren Oliver
#192. A sharp blade of sadness goes through me, deep and quick. I guess it was bound to happen
eventually. I've always known it would. Everyone you trust, everyone you think you can count on, will eventually disappoint you. When left to their own devices, people lie and keep secrets and change and disappear, some behind a different face or personality, some behind a dense early morning fog, beyond a cliff. That's why the cure is so important. That's why we need it. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Personality quotes by Sebastian Seung
#193. The brain is behind the really big questions we have. Who am I, what is my identity? What is that based on? If memories are encoded in connectomes, your personality might be in your connectome. If that's the case, that's the basis of your uniqueness as a person. #Quote by Sebastian Seung
Personality quotes by Glen Wilson
#194. Research shows that most of the decisions are made within the first four minutes, far too soon for personality and intelligence to be properly assessed. Among the characteristics that emerge as favorable are self-assurance, eye contact, enthusiasm, cologne, a firm handshake and spectacles. Humour may be beneficial but not if it comes across as smart-arse, competitive or hostile. #Quote by Glen Wilson
Personality quotes by Lucie B. Amundsen
#195. My favorite chick was the tawny-colored Buff Orpington. She promised to one day be a bodacious plus-sized model of a chicken, wearing fluffy pantaloons under full feathery skirts and with as charming a personality as her appearance suggested. Predictably named Buffy, she didn't mind being handled and rather seemed to enjoy the company, clucking softly with a closed beak as I picked her up and stroked her silky feathers. #Quote by Lucie B. Amundsen

Personality quotes by C.G. Jung
#197. Every concept in our conscious mind, in short, has its own psychic associations. While such associations may vary in intensity (according to relative importance of the concept to our whole personality, or according to the other ideas and even complexes to which it is associated in our unconscious), they are capable of changing the "normal" character of that concept. It may even become something quite different as it drifts below the level of consciousness.

These subliminal aspects of everything that happens to us may seem to play very little part in our daily lives. But in dream analysis, where the psychologist is dealing with expressions of the unconscious, they are very relevant, for they are the almost invisible roots of our conscious thoughts. That is why commonplace objects or ideas can assume such powerful psychic significance in a dream that we may awake seriously disturbed, in spite of having dreamed of nothing worse than a locked room or a missed train.

The images produced in dreams are much more picturesque and vivid than the concepts and experiences that are their waking counterparts. One of the reasons for this is that, in a dream, such concepts can express their unconscious meaning. In our conscious thoughts, we restrain ourselves within the limits of rational statements-statements that are much less colorful because we have stripped them of most of their psychic associations. #Quote by C.G. Jung
Personality quotes by Tom Sizemore
#198. Whatever it is, if you draw, you paint, you're a carpenter, you play football, the more you do it, you're a journalist, the more stories you write, the more people you interview and navigate your way through these different personalities to get your story, the better you're going to get at it. Acting's no different. #Quote by Tom Sizemore
Personality quotes by John Dewey
#199. The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action. #Quote by John Dewey
Personality quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#200. Silence is the universal refuge, the sequel to all dull discourses and all foolish acts, a balm to our every chagrin, as welcome after satiety as after disappointment; that background which the painter may not daub, be he master or bungler, and which, however awkward a figure we may have made in the foreground, remains ever our inviolable asylum, where no indignity can assail, no personality can disturb us. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
