Practicality quotes by Mary  Elizabeth
#1. Love for him doesn't listen to logic, practicality, or consequence. #Quote by Mary Elizabeth
Practicality quotes by Judith McNaught
#2. I wanted to tell you," Elizabeth began in a rush, "how very sorry I am to have dragged you here and subjected you to such humiliation. Mr. Thornton's behavior was inexcusable, unforgivable."
"I daresay he was…surprised by our unexpected arrival."
"Surprised?" Elizabeth repeated, gaping at her. "He was demented! I know you must think-must be wondering what could have led me to have anything at all to do with him before," she began, "and I cannot honestly tell you what I could possibly have been thinking of."
"Oh, I don't find that much mystery," said Lucinda. "He's exceedingly handsome."
Elizabeth would not have been more shocked if Lucinda had called him the soul of amiability. "Handsome!" she began, then she shook her head, trying to clear it. "I must say you're being very tolerant and kind about all this."
Lucinda stood up and cast an appraising eye over Elizabeth. "I would not describe my attitude as 'kind,'" she thoughtfully replied. "Rather I would say it's one of practicality. The bodice on your gown is quite tight, but attractive for all that. Shall we go down to breakfast? #Quote by Judith McNaught
Practicality quotes by MaryJanice Davidson
#3. I looked up. Mom looked down at me with the compassion/practicality combo that was her trademark. #Quote by MaryJanice Davidson
Practicality quotes by Gary Vaynerchuk
#4. Here's how I work: It's 2013, and most marketers are operating like it's 2009. I'm always trying to market like it's 2015, but not like it's 2020. A lot of my contemporaries who understand where the world is going, go too far out, and aren't practical. I have always prided myself on being visionary, with a heavy practicality. #Quote by Gary Vaynerchuk
Practicality quotes by Robin McKinley
#5. How does a hundred-and-eighty-pound man turn into a ninety-pound wolf? Where does the leftover ninety go? Does he park it in the umbrella stand overnight? #Quote by Robin McKinley
Practicality quotes by Susan Ee
#6. Dee checks to make sure his mic is turned off. 'It's not about common sense.' Dee surveys the crowd with some pride.

Dum also checks to make sure his mic is off. 'It's not about logic or practicality or anything that makes a remote amount of sense.' He sports a wide grin.

'That's the whole point of a talent show,' says Dee, doing a spin onstage. 'It's illogical, chaotic, stupid, and a whole hell of a lot of fun.' Dee nods to Dum. 'It's what sets us apart from monkeys. What other species puts on talent shows? #Quote by Susan Ee
Practicality quotes by Maria Semple
#7. First we lay out plastic bags under the leaks and cover them with towels or moving blankets. Then we put a spaghetti pot in the middle to catch the water. The trash bags are necessary because it might leak for hours in one place, then move over two inches. Mom's pièce de résistance is putting an old T-shirt inside the spaghetti pot to muffle the drip-drip-drip. Because that can drive you crazy when you are trying to sleep. #Quote by Maria Semple
Practicality quotes by A.J. Darkholme
#8. Sometimes it's best to trade an ideal for something more practical that you can guarantee. #Quote by A.J. Darkholme
Practicality quotes by David Burkus
#9. Creative ideas make people uncomfortable. It turns out that, at least subconsciously, we can have a hard time recognizing ideas as both new and useful at the same time. This cognitive dissonance between creativity and practicality may actually create a subtle bias against creative ideas. #Quote by David Burkus
Practicality quotes by Andre Leon Talley
#10. Stella McCartney, not only is she a designer, she is a mother of four, and she lives for practicality. She understands what a woman needs to wear to work and what a woman needs to wear when it's time to go out and put on the Ritz! #Quote by Andre Leon Talley
Practicality quotes by Rushabh Patel
#11. Don't fall for the ones who say, I am always yours. They are liars, unfortunately humans too #Quote by Rushabh Patel
Practicality quotes by Mortimer J. Adler
#12. A practical problem can only be solved by action itself. When your practical problem is how to earn a living, a book on how to make friends and influence people cannot solve it, though it may suggest things to do. Nothing short of the doing solves the problem. It is solved only by earning a living. #Quote by Mortimer J. Adler
Practicality quotes by Patricia Briggs
#13. Zealots are one-trick ponies. They love nothing so much as their own cause. Don't get in their way without expecting to be hurt. #Quote by Patricia Briggs
Practicality quotes by E.A. Bucchianeri
#14. I mean really, how could an artistic individual stay grounded in the nitty-gritty of how many minutes per pound meat has to stay in the oven when trying to fathom the creative philosophy behind the greatest artistic minds of the world? #Quote by E.A. Bucchianeri
Practicality quotes by Sarah Gristwood
#15. Even their contemporaries felt that the relationship of Elizabeth and Robert transcended the details on practicality. There had to be some explanation for their lifelong fidelity, and those contemporaries put it down to 'synaptia', a hidden conspiracy of the stars, whose power to rule human lives no-one doubted: 'a sympathy of spirits between them, occasioned perhaps by some secret constellation', in the words of the historian William Camden, writing at the beginning of the seventeenth century. Theirs was a relationship already rooted in history and mythology. And that moment when Elizabeth heard she had come to the throne encapsulated much about their story. If our well-loved picture of Elizabeth's accession is something of a fantasy - if the reality is on the whole more interesting - you might say the same about our traditional picture of her relationship with Robert Dudley. #Quote by Sarah Gristwood
Practicality quotes by Ben Karlin
#16. What was it that kept me coming back when Reason and Practicality were screaming, "Let it go, dickwad!" (You should know that Reason and Practicality are mean.) #Quote by Ben Karlin
Practicality quotes by Elsie De Wolfe
#17. A house should be a synthesis of comfort, practicality, and tradition. #Quote by Elsie De Wolfe
Practicality quotes by George Bodenheimer
#18. Elegant in its simplicity and practicality, Lee has distilled many powerful leadership strategies into the lessons many of us learned as children. They are no less relevant to our working lives. At its core, Creating Magic is a collection of stories that reminds us to demonstrate care and respect for every member of the team and to focus our efforts not our ourselves but on the people we lead. #Quote by George Bodenheimer
Practicality quotes by C. Wright Mills
#19. Above all, do not give up your moral and political autonomy by accepting in somebody else's terms the illiberal practicality of the bureaucratic ethos or the liberal practicality of the moral scatter. Know that many personal troubles cannot be solved merely as troubles, but must be understood in terms of public issues and in terms of the problems of history making. #Quote by C. Wright Mills
Practicality quotes by Jim Provenzano
#20. Were practicality the explanation for my spontaneous hike, I could have sung my purpose that afternoon, 'Wanking in a Winter Wonderland. #Quote by Jim Provenzano
Practicality quotes by John Steinbeck
#21. It was strange to Old Robert that he, who knew so much more than his neighbors, who had pondered so endlessly, should be not even a good farmer. Sometimes he imagined he understood too many things ever to do anything well. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Practicality quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#22. Halpin was pretty generally deprecated as an intellectual black sheep who was likely at any moment to disgrace the flock by bleating in metre. The Tennessee Fraysers were a practical folk - not practical in the popular sense of devotion to sordid pursuits, but having a robust contempt for any qualities unfitting a man for the wholesome vocation of politics. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Practicality quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#23. Ain't Good People (The Sonnet)

Ain't no good people we,
If goodness means blindness.
Ain't no practical folks we,
If practicality means selfishness.
Ain't no sane citizens we,
If sanity means indifference.
Ain't no smart bunch we,
If smartness brings arrogance.
Ain't no articulate minds we,
If articulation means mindless accuracy.
Ain't no civilized society we,
If civilization means hypocrisy.
We are the force capable of mastering a planet.
Let's live not as machines but conscience incarnate. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Practicality quotes by Ashanti
#24. By going and coming, a bird weaves its nest. #Quote by Ashanti
Practicality quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#25. Every man has forgotten who he is. One may understand the cosmos, but never the ego; the self is more distant than any star.
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God; but thou shalt not know thyself.
We are all under the same mental calamity; we have all forgotten our names. We have all forgotten what we really are. All that we call common sense and rationality and practicality and positivism only means that for certain dead levels of our life we forget that we have forgotten. All that we call spirit and art and ecstasy only means that for one awful moment we remember that we forget. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Practicality quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#26. In many ways an artistic nature unfits a man for a practical existence. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Practicality quotes by Paul Engle
#27. Without vision you don't see, and without practicality the bills don't get paid. #Quote by Paul Engle
Practicality quotes by David Brin
#28. Only people with full stomachs become environmentalists. #Quote by David Brin
Practicality quotes by John Darnielle
#29. The reality of having a kid involves day-to-day practicality - not broader philosophical outlooks. #Quote by John Darnielle
Practicality quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#30. Take practical and rational steps in maximizing your time #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Practicality quotes by Philip K. Dick
#31. If practicality and morality are polarized and you must choose, you must do what you think is right, rather than what you think is practical. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Practicality quotes by Debra Dean
#32. Practicality continues to be a challenge for me - it's at odds with being an artist. I actually had a career on stage in New York - not a brilliant career or I'd still be doing it - but I got enough work to keep my agent and my union health insurance. #Quote by Debra Dean
Practicality quotes by Robert Greene
#33. This hunger for the magical shortcut has survived to our day in the form of simple formulas for success, ancient secrets finally revealed in which a mere change of attitude will attract the right energy. There is a grain of truth and practicality in all of these efforts - for instance, the emphasis in magic on deep focus. But in the end all of this searching is centered on something that doesn't exist - the effortless path to practical power, the quick and easy solution, the El Dorado of the mind. #Quote by Robert Greene
Practicality quotes by Florence Nightingale
#34. I am of certain convinced that the greatest heroes are those who do their duty in the daily grind of domestic affairs whilst the world whirls as a maddening dreidel. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Practicality quotes by Kit Williams
#35. Practical! On Wednesday afternoons I could be practically anything. What's up? #Quote by Kit Williams
Practicality quotes by William Deresiewicz
#36. The timid practicality that is the major message that our kids absorb today is alibied-and camouflaged, and soothed-with a hollow commercialized rebellion. #Quote by William Deresiewicz
Practicality quotes by Ravindra Shukla
#37. If we had always thought from a so-called practical angle – we would've never had anything new in this world. We would've hidden under the security of practicality and taken no risk, we would have never discovered heart transplantation as a new possibility, we would've never thought curing cancer patients a possibility, and we would've never discovered a new galaxy in the universe. Taking the cover of practicality is more or less like hiding under the cover of security for fear of failure. #Quote by Ravindra Shukla
Practicality quotes by Padma Lakshmi
#38. Love and passion begat marriage in my world. Yet in my grandparents' world, marriage began with practicality. My grandfather told me proudly of that day he first met my grandmother. He interviewed her, posing little riddles to test her common sense. "Supposing you have to take the children to school and you're late and it's supposed to rain," he said. "Would you take a taxi or a bus?" My grandmother said, "Well, first I'd take an umbrella." Ice cream in Central Park, this was not. #Quote by Padma Lakshmi
Practicality quotes by Elizabeth Camden
#39. And for once, I want you to snap out of that hidebound practicality that sucks all the joy out of life. Were you an Indian, your spirit name would be Dream Killer. #Quote by Elizabeth Camden
Practicality quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#40. When the business man rebukes the idealism of his office-boy, it is commonly in some such speech as this: "Ah, yes, when one is young, one has these ideals in the abstract and these castles in the air; but in middle age they all break up like clouds, and one comes down to a belief in practical politics, to using the machinery one has and getting on with the world as it is." Thus, at least, venerable and philanthropic old men now in their honoured graves used to talk to me when I was a boy.But since then I have grown up and have discovered that these philanthropic old men were telling lies. What has really happened is exactly the opposite of what they said would happen. They said that I should lose my ideals and begin to believe in the methods of practical politicians. Now, I have not lost my ideals in the least; my faith in fundamentals is exactly what it always was. What I have lost is my old childlike faith in practical politics. I am still as much concerned as ever about the Battle of Armageddon; but I am not so much concerned about the General Election. As a babe I leapt up on my mother's knee at the mere mention of it. No; the vision is always solid and reliable. The vision is always a fact. It is the reality that is often a fraud. As much as I ever did, more than I ever did, I believe in Liberalism. But there was a rosy time of innocence when I believed in Liberals. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Practicality quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#41. T happens in all human affairs that we never seek to escape one mischief without falling into another. Prudence therefore consists in knowing how to distinguish degrees of disadvantage, and in accepting a less evil as a good. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Practicality quotes by Gina Greenlee
#42. Much of what we acquire in life isn't worth dragging to the next leg of our
journey. Travel light. You will be better equipped to travel far. #Quote by Gina Greenlee
Practicality quotes by Criss Jami
#43. Pretentiousness isn't always just big words and meaningless jargon, but also pretty words that either when put into action don't mean beans or hurt you in the long run. Oftentimes, the former appeals to the intellect whereas the latter appeals to the heart. #Quote by Criss Jami
Practicality quotes by Donald R. Hickey
#44. Secretary of the treasury Albert Gallatin is accused of treason by war enthusiasts merely for suggesting budget adjustments to pay for war measures. #Quote by Donald R. Hickey
Practicality quotes by Criss Jami
#45. Of course, if one does not fully trust the promise of God's Kingdom, he will have a hard time taking risks and making sacrifices in this life. A gospel centered around the temporal self - fleeting happiness, earthly success, vain prosperity, things such as these - is the primary ambition of the half-hearted Christian; the one who somewhat believes he is subject to an eternal death; the one who just might believe in men before God, who morbidly fears seeming less than anyone else. The man of this school feels deeply that he has but one life to live, that this must be his only chance, and therefore must have it all in his favor - from glory to comfort to riches - and have it right this instant. He is but hinting that he is overcome because he insists always that he must overcome, that his judgment comes now and by the persons around him. The point is, however, in this sense, that by grace the Christian is indeed free, but only for as long as he wants to be free - the practicality of true freedom: that of God which offers not so much freedom to be like the world as it does freedom from the pressures of having to be like the world. For Divine Law is based solely on love and freedom; whereas secular law, pressure and imitation. #Quote by Criss Jami
Practicality quotes by Loretta Chase
#46. And, while Jessica had faith enough in Providence, she preferred to seek help from more accessible sources. Her assistant was Phelps, the coachman. #Quote by Loretta Chase
Practicality quotes by Hamilton Jordan
#47. And when you start talking about the practicality of winning a race like that - you've got to remember we're not talking about winning 51 percent of the vote. We're talking about winning 36, 37, 38 percent of the vote. #Quote by Hamilton Jordan
Practicality quotes by Peter Zumthor
#48. I think the chance of finding beauty is higher if you don't work on it directly. Beauty in architecture is driven by practicality. This is what you learn from studying the old townscapes of the Swiss farmers. #Quote by Peter Zumthor
Practicality quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#49. Suppose that a great commotion arises in the street about something, let us say a lamp-post, which many influential persons desire to pull down. A grey-clad monk, who is the spirit of the Middle Ages, is approached upon the matter, and begins to say, in the arid manner of the Schoolmen, "Let us first of all consider, my brethren, the value of Light. If Light be in itself good--" At this point he is somewhat excusably knocked down. All the people make a rush for the lamp-post, the lamp-post is down in ten minutes, and they go about congratulating each other on their unmediaeval practicality. But as things go on they do not work out so easily. Some people have pulled the lamp-post down because they wanted the electric light; some because they wanted old iron; some because they wanted darkness, because their deeds were evil. Some thought it not enough of a lamp-post, some too much; some acted because they wanted to smash municipal machinery; some because they wanted to smash something. And there is war in the night, no man knowing whom he strikes. So, gradually and inevitably, to-day, to-morrow, or the next day, there comes back the conviction that the monk was right after all, and that all depends on what is the philosophy of Light. Only what we might have discussed under the gas-lamp, we now must discuss in the dark. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Practicality quotes by David Pietrusza
#50. In the 1960 campaign, Arthur Schlesinger wrote of Adlai Stevenson, who already lost twice as the party's presidential nominee, He has been away from power too long; he gives me an odd sense of unreality, a certain frivolity, distractedness, over-interest in words and phrases. #Quote by David Pietrusza
Practicality quotes by Evan Davis
#51. Once we are fed, heated, housed and healthy, our extra consumption inevitably has an element of luxury about it. And once luxury enters the scene, the practicalities are in trouble, as women who wear expensive stiletto heels can testify. #Quote by Evan Davis
Practicality quotes by Ralph L. Wahlstrom
#52. Practicality requires that we stop somewhere in the process, but nothing actually says we can't keep on writing and revising. In fact, most writers continue to develop ideas and themes from one book to the next in what is essentially a lifelong evolution and revision. #Quote by Ralph L. Wahlstrom
Practicality quotes by Laura Trentham
#53. Too many cold, hungry nights had taught her a special kind of practicality, but in that moment, she believed in his magic. #Quote by Laura Trentham
Practicality quotes by George Eliot
#54. I've always mistrusted that sort o' learning as leaves folks foolish and unreasonable about business. #Quote by George Eliot
Practicality quotes by Rod Judkins
#55. To be true to an idea, you have to value expression over perfection, vitality over finish, movement over the static, and form over function. Put your personality before practicality and your individuality into everything. Ironing out impracticalities irons out what is unique. #Quote by Rod Judkins
Practicality quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#56. The shoes themselves were light green, with lowish heels (which were very important for comfort and walking; high heels were always a temptation, but, like all temptations, one paid for them later). #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Practicality quotes by Patrick Leigh Fermor
#57. A little later, as we talked of the Maniot dirges by which I was obsessed, I was surprised to hear this bloodshot-eyed and barefoot old man say: "Yes, it's the old iambic tetrameter acalectic." It was the equivalent of a Cornish fisherman pointing out the difference, in practicality incomprehensible dialect, between the Petrachian and the Spenserian sonnet. It was quite correct. Where on earth had he learnt it? His last bit of information was that, in the old days (that wonderful cupboard!) the Arabs used to come to this coast to dive for the murex. #Quote by Patrick Leigh Fermor
Practicality quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#58. Practicality is a difficult thing to find; it does not drop down from heaven. And for the last two hundred years we have been divorced from all practical life. Ideas, if you like, are fermenting, and desire for good exists, though it's in a childish form, and honesty you may find, although there are crowds of brigands. Anyway, there's no practicality. Practicality goes well shod. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Practicality quotes by Scott Adams
#59. Practicality rules our perceptions.
To survive, our tiny brains need to tame the blizzard of
delusion generator
information that threatens to overwhelm us. Our perceptions
are wondrously flexible, transforming our worldview
automatically and continuously until we find safe harbor in
a comfortable delusion. #Quote by Scott Adams
Practicality quotes by Hilary Mantel
#60. If you help load a cart you get a ride in it, as often as not. It gives him to think, how bad people are at loading carts. Men trying to walk straight ahead through a narrow gateway with a wide wooden chest. A simple rotation of the object solves a great many problems. #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Practicality quotes by Mark Hodder
#61. For more than a year, he'd felt destined to marry Isabel Arundell; now, suddenly, he wasn't so sure. He loved her, that was certain, but he also resented her. He loved her strength and practicality but resented her overbearing personality and tendency to do things on his behalf without consulting him first; loved that she tolerated his interest in all things exotic and erotic but hated her blinkered Catholicism. Charles Darwin had killed God but she and her family, like so many others, still clung to the delusion. #Quote by Mark Hodder
Practicality quotes by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
#62. There is no inherent awakening power in cultural forms that have become dissociated from the wisdom and practicality that gave birth to them. They turn into illusions themselves and become part of the drama of religious culture. Although they can make us happy temporarily, they can't free us from suffering, so at some point, they become a source of disappointment and discouragement. Eventually, these forms may inspire nothing more than resistance to their authority. #Quote by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
Practicality quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#63. All the time something within her was crying for a decision.
She wanted her life shaped now, immediately - and the decision must be made by some force - of love, of money, of unquestionable practicality - that was close at hand #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Practicality quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#64. Bring real and practical life experience to the people #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Practicality quotes by Raheel Farooq
#65. Sometimes, the most practical thing to do is to think. #Quote by Raheel Farooq
Practicality quotes by Tim Daly
#66. The creative tension with spirituality vs. practicality in the world of politics is a vital conversation. #Quote by Tim Daly
Practicality quotes by James Madison
#67. As the cool and deliberate sense of the community ought, in all governments, and actually will, in all free governments, ultimately prevail over the views of its rulers; so there are particular moments in public affairs when the people, stimulated by some irregular passion, or some illicit advantage, or misled by the artful misrepresentations of interested men, may call for measures which they themselves will afterwards be the most ready to lament and condemn. #Quote by James Madison
Practicality quotes by John Adams
#68. A taste for literature and a turn for business, united in the same person, never fails to make a great man. #Quote by John Adams
Practicality quotes by Shauna Niequist
#69. I know that life is busy and hard and that there's crushing pressure to just settle down and get a real job and khaki pants and a haircut. But don't. Please don't. Please keep believing that life can be better, brighter, broader because of the art that you make. Please keep demonstrating the courage that it takes to swim upstream in a world that prefers putting away for retirement to putting pen to paper, that chooses practicality over poetry, that values you more for going to the gym than going to the deepest places in your soul. Please keep making your art for people like me, people who need the magic and imagination and honesty of great art to make the day-to-day world a little more bearable. #Quote by Shauna Niequist
Practicality quotes by Eugene H. Peterson
#70. The way we think of and respond to God is the most practical thing we do. In matters of everyday practicality, nothing, absolutely nothing, takes precedence over God. #Quote by Eugene H. Peterson
Practicality quotes by Sefi Atta
#71. At some point, practicality requires that you reach out to people in the business. You have to take care of business if you value your work. #Quote by Sefi Atta
Practicality quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#72. Be practical as well as generous in your ideals. Keep your eyes on the stars, but remember to keep your feet on the ground. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Practicality quotes by Charles P. Pierce
#73. The case against intellect is founded on a set of fictional and wholly abstract antagonisms. Intellect is pitted against feeling, on the ground that it is somehow inconsistent with warm emotion. It is pitted against character, because it is widely believed that intellect stands for mere cleverness, which transmutes easily into the sly and diabolical. It is pitted against practicality, since theory is held to be opposed to practice. It is pitted against democracy, since intellect is felt to be a form of distinction that defies egalitarianism ... . Once the validity of these antagonisms is accepted, then the case for intellect ... is lost. #Quote by Charles P. Pierce
Practicality quotes by Stephen Bayley
#74. It is the fragrant lack of practicality that makes high-heeled shoes so fascinating: in terms of static mechanics they induce a sort of insecurity which some find titillating. #Quote by Stephen Bayley
Practicality quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#75. The obstinate practicality of old women pierces and fortifies these families like the steel rods buried in walls of powdery concrete. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Practicality quotes by Ha Jin
#76. Writing is not a great profession as a lot of writers proclaim. I write because this is something I can do. Another thing - very often I think a lot of writers write because they have failed to do other things. How many writers can't drive? A lot. They're not practical. They are not capable in everyday life. #Quote by Ha Jin
Practicality quotes by Dalal Gabara
#77. If only there was a way to escape this reality, if only there was a way to erase all this formality, if only there was a way to figure out your mentality, if only there was a way to rid all the theatricality,if only...however sadly all we think of is practicality, so we will never reach any finality. #Quote by Dalal Gabara
Practicality quotes by Antonio Gramsci
#78. My practicality consists in this, in the knowledge that if you beat your head against the wall it is your head which breaks and not the wall - that is my strength, my only strength. #Quote by Antonio Gramsci
Practicality quotes by Barack Obama
#79. For the young people here: practicality is a good thing. There are times where compromise is necessary. That's part of wisdom. But it's also important to hang on to what you believe. #Quote by Barack Obama
Practicality quotes by Upton Sinclair
#80. They wish to build a new and better world, and I would be glad if they could succeed, and if I saw any hope of success I would join them. I ask for their plans, and they offer me vague dreams, in which as a man of affairs, I see no practicality. Is is like the the end of Das Rheingold: there is Valhalla, very beautiful, but only a rainbow bridge on which to get to it, and while the gods ma be able to walk on a rainbow, my investors and working people cannot. #Quote by Upton Sinclair
Practicality quotes by Elisa Romeo
#81. Instead of making decisions based on safety, security, or practicality, the Soul wants us to live our lives according to what we find to be most beautiful. #Quote by Elisa Romeo
Practicality quotes by Daya Kudari
#82. The more you win a debate intellectually, the more you lose it practically. #Quote by Daya Kudari
Practicality quotes by Thucydides
#83. You know well as I do that when we are talking on the human plane, questions of justice only arise when there is equal power to compel: in terms of practicality the dominant exact what they can and the weak concede what they must. (Said by Athenian envoy to the Melians) #Quote by Thucydides
Practicality quotes by Irvin Anthony
#84. Well, Jack, we have taken the Macedonian, and your share of the prize, if we get her in safely, may be two hundred dollars; what will you do with it?" Stephen Decatur, commanding the frigate United States, North Atlantic, near the Azores Islands, 1812.

"One hundred will go to my mother, sir, and the other I shall spend on schooling." Jack Creamer, aged ten. #Quote by Irvin Anthony
Practicality quotes by James Dewar
#85. Books and minds only work when they're open. #Quote by James Dewar
Practicality quotes by Robert M. Pirsig
#86. I talked yesterday about caring, I care about these moldy old riding gloves. I smile at them flying through the breeze beside me because they have been there for so many years and are so old and so tired and so rotten there is something kind of humorous about them. They have become filled with oil and sweat and dirt and spattered bugs and now when I set them down flat on a table, even when they are not cold, they won't stay flat. They've got a memory of their own. They cost only three dollars and have been restitched so many times it is getting impossible to repair them, yet I take a lot of time and pains to do it anyway because I can't imagine any new pair taking their place. That is impractical, but practicality isn't the whole thing with gloves or with anything else. #Quote by Robert M. Pirsig
Practicality quotes by Anuradha Bhattacharyya
#87. If we put aside the practicality, we may find our wishes to be very innocent. #Quote by Anuradha Bhattacharyya
Practicality quotes by Roger Eschbacher
#88. The pen is mightier than the sword unless it's a real sword in which case the guy with the pen should run away fast. #Quote by Roger Eschbacher
Practicality quotes by Olivia Atwater
#89. I have known many human beings with a full soul to their name who do not have half so much compassion or practicality as you. #Quote by Olivia Atwater
Practicality quotes by The Afters
#90. You'll never grab the wonderful with your feet on the ground. #Quote by The Afters
Practicality quotes by Susan Dennard
#91. In that moment, Iseult knew what she had to do. Logic didn't matter, nor Threadwitch practicality, nor even the opposing halves of her heart.
What mattered was doing the right thing.
So Iseult made her choice, and she ran. #Quote by Susan Dennard
Practicality quotes by Confucius
#92. Tsze-kung asked, "What do you think of me?" The Master said, "You are a pot." "What sort of pot?" "A precious ritual vase. #Quote by Confucius
Practicality quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#93. You must try to combine in your life immense idealism with immense practicality. You must be prepared to go into deep meditation now, and the next moment you must be ready to go and cultivate the fields. You must be prepared to explain the intricacies of the scriptures now, and the next moment to go and sell the produce of the fields in the market ... The true man is he who is strong as strength itself and yet possesses a woman's heart. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Practicality quotes by Jennifer Megan Varnadore
#94. Knowledge is great, but what practical use is it if you can't put it into practice? #Quote by Jennifer Megan Varnadore
Practicality quotes by Sophie Kennedy Clark
#95. If you're not getting work, make your own work. I think that's a good mentality. I suppose I take my drive from my mother and my practicality from my father. #Quote by Sophie Kennedy Clark
Practicality quotes by Peter S. Beagle
#96. Sure, she loves him. But they've got two different ideas of love. He wants to dance with her on a terrace with a full moon and a thirty-six-piece orchestra; he wants to go singing through storms with her, like Gene Kelly. She knows about thirty-six-piece orchestras. You have to feed them, and then there's nothing left for the children. #Quote by Peter S. Beagle
Practicality quotes by Lauren Willig
#97. I love the sound of words, the feel of them, the flow of them. I love the challenge of finding just that perfect combination of words to describe a curl of the lip, a tilt of the chin, a change in the atmosphere. Done well, novel-writing can combine lyricism with practicality in a way that makes one think of grand tapestries, both functional and beautiful. Fifty years from now, I imagine I'll still be questing after just that right combination of words. #Quote by Lauren Willig
Practicality quotes by Mikhail Botvinnik
#98. The triumph of the analytical movement, which formed in the '30's and '40's, was precisely what earned the Soviet masters the acclaim of chessplayers the world over. Unfortunately, it must also be noted that, for today's chessmasters, the watchword is practicality. #Quote by Mikhail Botvinnik
Practicality quotes by Christian Louboutin
#99. These heels are candy for the feet; they're for pleasure, not practicality. #Quote by Christian Louboutin
Practicality quotes by Edith Hamilton
#100. The Greeks not only face facts. They have no desire to escape from them. #Quote by Edith Hamilton
Practicality quotes by Philip K. Dick
#101. Don't try to solve serious matters in the middle of the night. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Practicality quotes by Myne Whitman
#102. She didn't believe there was anything like perfect, fairytale love. Most people were flawed and prone to mistakes. She thought herself a romantic but treated love with the same practicality she did most things. They'd had fall-outs and misunderstandings but she'd never been free to be herself like she was with Edward. She couldn't imagine being with another person after him. #Quote by Myne Whitman
Practicality quotes by Wendell Berry
#103. It could be said that a liberal education has the nature of a bequest, in that it looks upon the student as the potential heir of a cultural birthright, whereas a practical education has the nature of a commodity to be exchanged for position, status, wealth, etc., in the future. A liberal education rests on the assumption that nature and human nature do not change very much or very fast and that one therefore needs to understand the past. The practical educators assume that human society itself is the only significant context, that change is therefore fundamental, constant, and necessary, that the future will be wholly unlike the past, that the past is outmoded, irrelevant, and an encumbrance upon the future -- the present being only a time for dividing past from future, for getting ready.

But these definitions, based on division and opposition, are too simple. It is easy, accepting the viewpoint of either side, to find fault with the other. But the wrong is on neither side; it is in their division...

Without the balance of historic value, practical education gives us that most absurd of standards: "relevance," based upon the suppositional needs of a theoretical future. But liberal education, divorced from practicality, gives something no less absurd: the specialist professor of one or another of the liberal arts, the custodian of an inheritance he has learned much about, but nothing from. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Practicality quotes by Mick Farren
#104. You are frightened of everything. You call it caution. You call it common sense. You call it practicality. You call it playing the odds, but that's only because you're afraid to call it by its real name, and its real name is fear. #Quote by Mick Farren
Practicality quotes by Bart Schultz
#105. Described in this way, utilitarianism has little in common with the prosaic, visionless notion of the 'merely utilitarian,' in the sense of a narrowly or mundanely functional or efficient option. No such limited horizon confined the thought and character of the great English-language utilitarian philosophers, whose influence ran its course from the period just before the French Revolution through the Victorian era. Happiness, for them, was more of a cosmic calling, the path to world progress, and whatever was deemed 'utilitarian' had to be useful for that larger and inspiring end, the global minimization of pointless suffering and the global maximization of positive well-being or happiness. It invokes, ultimately, the point of view of universal benevolence. And it is more accurately charged with being too demanding ethically than with being too accommodating of narrow practicality, material interests, self-interestedness, and the like. #Quote by Bart Schultz
Practicality quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#106. She(Joan of Arc) put her dreams and her sentiment into her aims, where they ought to be; she put her practicality into her practice. Ine modern Imperial wars, the case is reversed. Our dreams, our aims are always, we insist, quite practical. It is our practice that is dreamy. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Practicality quotes by Bertrand Russell
#107. The 'practical' man, as this word is often used, is one who recognizes only the material needs, who realizes that men must have food for the body, but is oblivious of the necessity of providing food for the mind. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Practicality quotes by Joyce Rachelle
#108. You can only take too much in pursuit of something you don't really want. #Quote by Joyce Rachelle
Practicality quotes by Tom Robbins
#109. ...on a number of occasions this book has made reference to magic, and each time you've shaken your head, muttering such criticisms as "What does he mean by 'magic' anyhow? It's embarrassing to find a grown man talking about magic in such a manner. How can anybody take him seriously?" Or, as slightly more gracious readers have objected, "Doesn't the author realize that one can't write about magic? One can create it but not discuss it. It's much too gossamer for that. Magic can be neither described nor defined. Using words to describe magic is like using a screwdriver to slice roast beef."

To which the author now replies, Sorry, freeloaders, you're clever but you're not quite correct. Magic isn't the fuzzy, fragile, abstract and ephemeral quality you think it is. In fact, magic is distinguished from mysticism by its very concreteness and practicality. Whereas mysticism is manifest only in spiritual essence, in the transcendental state, magic demands a steady naturalistic base. Mysticism reveals the ethereal in the tangible. Magic makes something permanent out of the transitory, coaxes drama from the colloquial. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Practicality quotes by Max McKeown

Practicality quotes by Pete Wentz
#112. We are dreamers. We worship love, we hope against hope and toss practicality out the window. #Quote by Pete Wentz
Practicality quotes by King Hussein I
#113. I have found in my experience that expediency, whether it is practical or not, is an unreliable guide for behavior. Human behavior must be guided by a higher principle. Practicality has its place but only within a framework of values, which all men of good will share. #Quote by King Hussein I
Practicality quotes by Gail Carriger
#114. While her own taste was, frankly, pedestrian, Lady Maccon did enjoy seeing what all the peacocks had arranged to drape themselves with. In the better parts of London, one could run into almost anything: the latest evening gowns from Paris, floating dresses to the extremes of practicality from the Americas, and the fullest, most complex cravat ties imaginable. One could witness a veritable cornucopia of visual delights merely by driving through the crowded streets. If #Quote by Gail Carriger
Practicality quotes by Frank Herbert
#115. Hittite law emphasized restitution rather than revenge. Humankind lost a certain useful practicality when it chose the other Semitic response - never to forgive and never to forget. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Practicality quotes by George Ratliff
#116. I just thought, given the practicalities of financing an independent movie, you have to have some names. That's just the way it works. You have to have a name that can get you foreign pre-sales. #Quote by George Ratliff
Practicality quotes by Katie Henry
#117. The Anonymous Creed
We believe in one God, and many gods, and the possibility of none,
And also that the existence of the almighty is largely irrelevant,
Because regardless of who is maker of heaven an death,
It is our duty to care for all of creation, both visible and invisible.

We believe in one fundamental truth: That all people, regardless of what they worship, who they love, and what they think
Have a right to exist, and a right to be heard.
We strive to make faith consubstantial with reason and compassion,
Through which all good things are made.

We believe in the goodness of humankind (with a few notable exceptions),
The worth of listening to our friends and understanding our enemies,
The power of a single voice in a silent room,
And the practicality of cloaks and other assorted historical outerwear.
We do not all believe in one holy, catholic, and apostolic church
But are nonetheless grateful that it brought us together.

We strive to remember that high school will not last forever
And look forward to graduation day
And the life of that world to come.

Amen. #Quote by Katie Henry
Practicality quotes by Simon R. Green
#118. Rupert: " ... At this rate, somebody is bound to upset the Warlock once too often, and we'll end up with a Court full of bemused looking toads."
"He wouldn't dare use his magic here," said the Champion.
"Don't bet on it," said Rupert. "The High Warlock has all the practicality and self-preservation instincts of a depressed lemming. #Quote by Simon R. Green

Practicality quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#125. She cast a glance at Diana. "This all probably seems really silly to you, right?"
Diana wasn't entirely sure what ritual she'd just witnessed, so she said, "The dresses? Attire is important. It sends a message to everyone you meet."
"Yes!" Nim declared, fists held aloft in victory.
"Nooo," wailed Alia, burying her head in the pillows. Now there's two of you."
"You said as much in the drugstore," Diana pointed out, leaning against the desk.
"But there's a difference between looking respectable and saying, Look at me!"
"Perhaps you should think of it as armor," suggested Diana. "When a warrior readies herself for battle, she doesn't just worry about practicality."
Alia rolled onto her side and propped her head on one hand "I'd think not dying would be the big concern."
"Yes, but the goal is also to intimidate. A general wears her rank. The same is true of athletes when they compete. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Practicality quotes by Jane Roberts
#126. Each of us seems to have a main focus, a particular idea of practicality - a concept of 'what we want out of life' against which we judge our experiences. #Quote by Jane Roberts
Practicality quotes by Rachel Hawkins
#127. What it lacks in pizzaz, it makes up for in practicality," I said, hoping Aislinn couldn't hear how terrified I was. But she put her hand on my shoulder-the first time she'd ever touched me-and said, "You'll be fine. If there's one thing I've learned about you, Sophie Brannick, it's that you are one tough little thing."
I almost sad, "Sophie Mercer." Instead I just said, "Thanks, um, Aunt Aislinn."
She pulled her hand back. "Let's not get carried away."
"Right, sorry. #Quote by Rachel Hawkins
Practicality quotes by Anna Wiener
#128. I was worried about a lot of things: loneliness, failure, earthquakes. But I wasn't too worried about my soul. There had always been two sides to my personality. One side was sensible and organized, good at math; appreciative of order, achievement, authority, rules. The other side did everything it could to undermine the first. I behaved as if the first side dominated, but it did not. I wished it did: practicality, I thought, was a safe hedge against failure. It seemed an easier way to move through the world. #Quote by Anna Wiener
Practicality quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#129. If you have not even a little imagination, you are simply a brute. So you must not lower your ideal, neither are you to lose sight of practicality. We must avoid the two extremes ... You must try to combine in your life immense idealism with immense practicality. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Practicality quotes by Pooja Ruprell
#130. Get crazy in prayer. Ask for the seemingly impossible; then watch it happen. Do not make judgments on what you are worthy of. Save the practicality for other aspects of your life. #Quote by Pooja Ruprell
Practicality quotes by Jim Carrey
#131. So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality, #Quote by Jim Carrey
Practicality quotes by Lisa Birnbach
#132. Prep clothes are sensible: rain clothes keep you dry; winter clothes keep you warm; collars are buttoned down so they don't flap in your face when you're playing polo. Layering is a natural response to varying weather conditions. #Quote by Lisa Birnbach
Practicality quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#133. All that we call spirit and art and ecstacy only means that for one awful instant we remember that we forgot. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
Practicality quotes by Megan McCafferty
#134. In choosing to be a Psychology major, I decided to learn for the joy of learning for the first time in my life. I'd always been fascinated by human nature. What makes us act the way we do? Why do we make the same mistakes over and over? But I guess my interest is purely theoretical. I'm a Psychology major
who has no desire to work with people. This was poor planning on my part, I suppose. My parents definitely think so. But choosing passion over practicality seemed so honorable when I was a first-year student and graduation seemed so very, very far away . . .

But now, a semester away from unemployment, I realize how much better off those Engineering students really are. Sure, they're boring conversationalists that make you want to kill yourself because every story begins, "The other day? In the lab?" But people become a whole helluva lot more interesting when they're pulling down six figures, don't they? If I'm going to drag my friends out to my cardboard box, the pressure's on to provide some pretty goddamned sparkling conversation once they get there. And even with all my noble knowledge for knowledge's sake, I'm not sure I can. #Quote by Megan McCafferty
Practicality quotes by Theodor Adorno
#135. The inadequacy of the purely purpose-oriented form is revealed for what it is-a monotonous, impoverished boring practicality. #Quote by Theodor Adorno
Practicality quotes by Jose Saramago
#136. A man must earn his daily bread by some means some-where, and if his bread fails to nourish his soul, at least his body will be nourished while his soul suffers. #Quote by Jose Saramago
Practicality quotes by David Whyte
#137. There's a fierce practicality and empiricism which the whole imaginative, lyrical aspect of poetry comes from. #Quote by David Whyte
