Practice quotes by Lloyd Alexander
#1. Thinking is a bit uncomfortable, but you'll get used to it. A matter of time and practice. #Quote by Lloyd Alexander
Practice quotes by Trista Sutter
#2. I'd tell the planet to actively and consciously practice gratitude. To never give up hope. To believe in themselves and be true to who they are. To be kind. To share. To protect our planet for future generations. #Quote by Trista Sutter
Practice quotes by Stella McCartney
#3. I think deep down I'm spiritual, but there's nothing I practice. #Quote by Stella McCartney
Practice quotes by Wendell Berry
#4. To husband is to use with care, to keep, to save, to make last, to conserve. Old usage tells us that there is a husbandry also of the land, of the soil, of the domestic plants and animals - obviously because of the importance of these things to the household. And there have been times, one of which is now, when some people have tried to practice a proper human husbandry of the nondomestic creatures in recognition of the dependence of our households and domestic life upon the wild world. Husbandry is the name of all practices that sustain life by connecting us conservingly to our places and our world; it is the art of keeping tied all the strands in the living network that sustains us.
And so it appears that most and perhaps all of industrial agriculture's manifest failures are the result of an attempt to make the land produce without husbandry. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Practice quotes by Peter Wohlleben
#5. Occasionally, a tree is harvested with care and removed using horses. And so that old trees can fulfill their destinies, 5 to 10 percent of the area is completely protected. Lumber from forests with such species-appropriate tree management can be used with no qualms of conscience. Unfortunately, 95 percent of the current forest practice in Central Europe looks quite different, with the use of heavy machinery and plantation monocultures. #Quote by Peter Wohlleben
Practice quotes by Frederick Lenz
#6. In the advanced practice, the relationship between the Zen master and the student becomes very terse. The Zen master will expect things of the student because the student is in graduate school. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Practice quotes by Michael Josephson
#7. Experimenting with drugs is like target practice where your head is the bull's-eye. #Quote by Michael Josephson
Practice quotes by Baron Baptiste
#8. I see a real yogi as a someone who is committed to growth and to being the best version of themselves, and, at the same time, is courageous enough to be fully present and authentic in each moment. Someone who is not afraid to get real about the whole mess of who they are - the good, the bad, and the ugly #Quote by Baron Baptiste
Practice quotes by Osama Bin Laden
#9. Terrorism can be commendable, and it can be reprehensible. The terrorism we practice is of the commendable kind for it is directed at the tyrants and the aggressors and the enemies of Allah. #Quote by Osama Bin Laden
Practice quotes by Green Day
#10. School is practice for the future, and practice makes perfect, but if nobody's pefect why practice? #Quote by Green Day
Practice quotes by Karen Quan
#11. I'm gonna go put my earplugs in and practice piano for hours until my fingers bleed. I practice the piano with the focus of Helen Keller - and nothing can distract me from the scent of the music.
-Karen Quan and Jarod Kintz #Quote by Karen Quan
Practice quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#12. Our eyes are open to see wisdom.
Our ears are open to hear wisdom.
Our minds are open to gain wisdom.
Our hearts are open to store wisdom.
Our souls are open to practice wisdom.
Our lives are open to magnify wisdom. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Practice quotes by Marcie Eanes
#13. My dreams and I spin tighter
the longer we practice our intricate steps #Quote by Marcie Eanes
Practice quotes by Sam Harris
#14. There is nothing novel about trying to become happy. And one can become happy, within certain limits, without any recourse to the practice of meditation. But conventional sources of happiness are unreliable, being dependent upon changing conditions. It is difficult to raise a happy family, to keep yourself and those you love healthy, to acquire wealth and find creative and fulfilling ways to enjoy it, to form deep friendships, to contribute to society in ways that are emotionally rewarding, to perfect a wide variety of artistic, athletic, and intellectual skills - and to keep the machinery of happiness running day after day. There is nothing wrong with being fulfilled in all these ways - except for the fact that, if you pay close attention, you will see that there is still something wrong with it. These forms of happiness aren't good enough. Our feelings of fulfillment do not last. And the stress of life continues. #Quote by Sam Harris
Practice quotes by Megan McCafferty
#15. This is my new hobby. I watch my life depart minute by minute. I anticipate the end of everything and anything
a conversation, a class, track practice, darkness
only to be left with more clock-watching to take its place. I'm continually waiting for something better that never comes. Maybe it would help if I knew what I wanted. #Quote by Megan McCafferty
Practice quotes by Christoph Spielberg
#16. have to wait for hours in the admitting room when you come in at night. They've learned that problem cases will be seen by five different specialists, that they'll get a real ECG and a pile of lab results, and even get X-rayed as a bonus - all within an hour or two of walking in the door. In private practice, such a rigorous battery of tests would take several stressful weeks, dozens of annoying phone calls, and countless hours reading dull magazines #Quote by Christoph Spielberg
Practice quotes by Mark Nepo
#17. We are all continually asked to learn how to ask for what we need, only to practice accepting what we're given. #Quote by Mark Nepo
Practice quotes by Rafael Nadal
#18. For sure, with golf it's not a physically demanding sport like tennis. That's what makes tennis great - you combine both things. It's a very mental sport and at the same time can be dramatically physical. But I do admire the mentality of sport more than the physicality because physical performance is much easier to practice than mental performance. #Quote by Rafael Nadal
Practice quotes by Al Kaline
#19. What gets me upset about with the newer players is their lack of intensity. They tend to go through the motions a little bit. They don't understand that you've got to practice the way you play. #Quote by Al Kaline
Practice quotes by Firas Alkhateeb
#20. Although he took Constantinople by force, Mehmet did not impose Islam on the city's inhabitants. They were free to continue to practice religion as they did before the conquest. #Quote by Firas Alkhateeb
Practice quotes by Eve Langlais
#21. You're talking about denuding me in front of a crowd." He lowered his voice. "A man shouldn't show off his naked parts to the ladies. It isn't proper." A man his age should practice modesty. "But everyone's seen your junk," Katie remarked. "There are dozens of sex shops in the merchant ring that have modeled their vibrator collection after it. #Quote by Eve Langlais
Practice quotes by Deborah Blake
#22. A spiritual path is a living thing, and living things grow and change. Many people fear change when it involves their spiritual practice or theology for various reasons. However, growth involves change. If we do not grow, we risk begrudgingly plodding down a path that doesn't serve our highest good. We must allow ourselves to expand, revise, and find our own spiritual truth and path. A healthy spiritual path is one that includes constant growth. Growth almost inherently includes change. #Quote by Deborah Blake
Practice quotes by Daniel J. Boorstin
#23. While the easiest way in metaphysics is to condemn all metaphysics as nonsense, the easiest way in morals is to elevate the common practice of the community into a moral absolute. #Quote by Daniel J. Boorstin
Practice quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#24. It is those who are successful, in other words, who are most likely to be given the kinds of special opportunities that lead to further success. It's the rich who get the biggest tax breaks. It's the best students who get the best teaching and most attention. And it's the biggest nine- and ten-year-olds who get the most coaching and practice. Success is the result of what sociologists like to call accumulative advantage. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Practice quotes by Ivan Lendl
#25. If I don't practice the way I should, then I won't play the way that I know I can. #Quote by Ivan Lendl
Practice quotes by Ryuho Okawa
#26. Examining your thoughts is an important part of the practice of self-reflections #Quote by Ryuho Okawa
Practice quotes by David Chiles
#27. The internet makes every online action memorable. Practice proper Netiquette for good memories. NetworkEtiquette.net #Quote by David Chiles
Practice quotes by Ronald H. Nash
#28. One thing evangelicals want is a reprieve from intolerance against their beliefs, values, and practices. #Quote by Ronald H. Nash
Practice quotes by A.G. Howard
#29. I go where Al goes, dances-with-bugs. And just so you know, if anything happens to her, I'll pin you by your wings to a corkboard and use you for dart practice. #Quote by A.G. Howard
Practice quotes by Brian Cain
#30. If he thinks he can "STEP IT UP" in games, he needs to start stepping it up in practice. The athletes that have peak performances on a consistent basis are the athletes that don't change their intensity and focus from practice to games. They go all out in practice to make practice more game-like, so that they can make the games more practice-like. #Quote by Brian Cain
Practice quotes by Stephen King
#31. As with all other aspects of the narrative art, you will improve with practice, but practice will never make you perfect. Why should it? What fun would that be? #Quote by Stephen King
Practice quotes by Bell Hooks
#32. I celebrate teaching that enables transgressions - a movement against and beyond boundaries. It is that movement which makes education the practice of freedom. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Practice quotes by Pema Chodron
#33. It's helpful to always remind yourself that meditation is about opening and relaxing withwhatever arises, without picking and choosing. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Practice quotes by Richard Dawkins
#34. The presence or absence of a creative super-intelligence is unequivocally a scientific question, even if it is not in practice - or not yet - a decided one. So also is the truth or falsehood of every one of the miracle stories that religions rely upon to impress multitudes of the faithful. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Practice quotes by Syed Muhammad Naquib Al-Attas
#35. Change, development and progress, according to the Islamic viewpoint, refer to the return to the genuine Islam enunciated and practised by the Holy Prophet (may God bless and give him Peace!) and his noble Companions and their Followers (blessing and peace be upon them all!) and the faith and practice of genuine Muslims after them; and they also refer to the self and mean its return to its original nature and religion (Islam). #Quote by Syed Muhammad Naquib Al-Attas
Practice quotes by Peter M. Senge
#36. The practice of shared vision involves the skills of unearthing shared "pictures of the future" that foster genuine commitment and enrollment rather than compliance. In mastering this discipline, leaders learn the counterproductiveness of trying to dictate a vision, no matter how heartfelt. #Quote by Peter M. Senge
Practice quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#37. Here in France, you must practice the art of accomplishing much while appearing to accomplish little. (in the John Adams miniseries on HBO) #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Practice quotes by Tony Leon
#38. The citizens have "the extraordinary and exhausting practice of sitting down to dinner at any time between 10m and 11 p.m. I found it challenging to stay animated and conversational when my normal bedtime was usually about the time that the first course was being cleared". #Quote by Tony Leon
Practice quotes by Jennie Finch
#39. I think that when young players really see their game rise next level, it's when practices are like competition and there's no separation there. Of course, there are adrenaline and the butterflies; you don't have that so much in practice. You want to fake yourself out and try to get them there because you want to be as close to that game mentality as you can when you step on that field every single day whether it's practice or in your backyard or down the street with your dad. #Quote by Jennie Finch
Practice quotes by Julia Cameron
#40. Perfectionism doesn't believe in practice shots. It doesn't believe in improvement. Perfectionism has never heard that anything worth doing is worth doing badly
and that if we allow ourselves to do something badly we might in time become quite good at it. Perfectionism measures our beginner's work against the finished work of masters. Perfectionism thrives on comparison and competition. It doesn't know how to say, "Good try," or "Job well done." The critic does not believe in creative glee
or any glee at all, for that matter. No, perfectionism is a serious matter. #Quote by Julia Cameron
Practice quotes by Paul Mason
#41. By this definition we are in the middle of a revolution: something wider than a pure political overthrow and narrower than the classic social revolutions of the twentieth century. Out of the very values and practices of free-market capitalism - individualism, choice, respect for human rights, the network, the flattened hierarchy - the masses have developed a new collective practice. They can bypass and supersede the machinery of power via, as Gorz predicted, an 'alternative network of relations'. #Quote by Paul Mason
Practice quotes by Frederick Lenz
#42. You are moving in and out of different advanced states of mind through your practice of meditation and mindfulness. It's that level of excellence that gives you joy in life, not the fact that you won or lost. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Practice quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#43. Setting the intention to practice kindness toward one's partner or family members or friends does not preclude getting angry or upset. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Practice quotes by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
#44. The source of your mind is love and whatever you do to go to that source, is spiritual practice. #Quote by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Practice quotes by Sipendr
#45. Practice doesn't make perfect, it makes perfect routine . #Quote by Sipendr
Practice quotes by PIRO JM
#46. What do you expect, lose everything or go outside to put into practice your ability to generate income to support your family? I am coming to you! #Quote by PIRO JM
Practice quotes by Glenn M. Cosh
#47. I'm proud to say that in my four plus decades of practice, I've found that the overwhelming majority of physicians are good. #Quote by Glenn M. Cosh
Practice quotes by Miguel Gomes
#48. They say films they are made by computers. There are computer programs to see statistically what people are more interested in, and they practice computer combinations in these things to try to have more viewers. #Quote by Miguel Gomes
Practice quotes by Patrick Henry
#49. That religion, or the duty which we owe to our Creator, and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence; and therefore all men are equally entitled to the free exercise of religion, according to the dictates of the conscience; and it is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love, and charity towards each other. #Quote by Patrick Henry
Practice quotes by Carol Lynn Pearson
#50. Practice Makes Perfect
I'll know better next time
Than to even begin;
Everything's easier on the second try
Especially sin. #Quote by Carol Lynn Pearson
Practice quotes by H.L. Mencken
#51. It is the theory of all modern civilized governments that they protect and foster the liberty of the citizen; it is the practice of all of them to limit its exercise, and sometimes very narrowly. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Practice quotes by OMOSOHWOFA CASEY
#52. People love it when you criticise some things which they do not believe in, practices which are contrary to what they practice or contrary views. They call you objective and truthful

But immediately you start disagreeing with their views, criticising their beliefs, expressing contrary views against what they support, they call you foul names, say you are not a child of God, ask who you are to judge.

Listen and listen good, I love writing and I write based on inspiration and experience.

I don't just write, I write to capture the minds of my readers and to spark reaction. I welcome contrary views, I love you opposing my stance cos in the process I learn some things from you.

Don't get mad at me for expressing myself via writing. I love putting things down. Learn to tolerate my views and counter me when you don't agree.

Stop holding grudges and developing unnecessary hatred. Life is too short to be closed minded and inclined. Life is too short for me to idolize anybody.

I can't always be dancing to your tunes, you also have to dance to mine. #Quote by OMOSOHWOFA CASEY
Practice quotes by Oscar Wilde
#53. As one knows the poet by his fine music, so one can recognize the liar by his rich rhythmic utterance, and in neither case will the casual inspiration of the moment suffice. Here, as elsewhere, practice must precede perfection. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Practice quotes by Jimmy Davis
#54. We are not to practice Bible reading, fasting, solitude, prayer, and other disciplines to make God happy with us but to make space to hear how happy God is with us because of Jesus. #Quote by Jimmy Davis
Practice quotes by Harry A. Blackmun
#55. The Free Exercise Clause at the very least was designed to guarantee freedom of conscience by prohibiting any degree of compulsion in matters of belief. It was offended by a burden on one's religion. The Establishment Clause can be understood as designed in part to ensure that the advancement of religion comes only from the voluntary efforts of its proponents and not from support by the state. Religious groups are to prosper or perish on the intrinsic merit and attraction of their beliefs and practices. #Quote by Harry A. Blackmun
Practice quotes by Laozi
#56. Practice non-action. Work without doing. #Quote by Laozi
Practice quotes by Sharon Gannon
#57. The practice of yoga allows us to become more conscious of our own physical existence and how significant we really are. #Quote by Sharon Gannon
Practice quotes by Firas Alkhateeb
#58. The smallpox vaccination was developed in the Ottoman Empire. The vaccine subsequently made its way to England through the wife of an English ambassador who observed the practice in Istanbul. #Quote by Firas Alkhateeb
Practice quotes by David Harvey
#59. Isaac Newton was being called on to defend to quality of moneys as master of the Royal Mint. He had to face the problem of the debasement of the currency through the practice of shaving some of the silver off silver coins to make more coins (an easy way to make money, when you think about it). Convicted coin-clippers were publicly hung at Tyburn - offences against God were to be forgiven, but offences against capital and mammon deserved capital punishment! #Quote by David Harvey
Practice quotes by Edward Gibbon
#60. A generous intercourse of charity united the most distant provinces, and the smaller congregations were cheerfully assisted by the alms of their more opulent brethren. Such an institution, which paid less regard to the merit than to the distress of the object, very materially conduced to the progress of Christianity. The Pagans, who were actuated by a sense of humanity, while they derided the doctrines, acknowledged the benevolence of the new sect. The prospect of immediate relief and of future protection allured into its hospitable bosom many of those unhappy persons whom the neglect of the world would have abandonned to the miseries of want, of sickness, and of old age. There is some reason likewise to believe, that great numbers of infants, who, according to the inhuman practice of the times, had been exposed by their parents, were frequently rescued from death, baptised, educated, and maintained by the piety of the Christians, and at the expense of the public treasure. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Practice quotes by Gabriel Wyner
#61. The thread between these two goals - remembering now and remembering later - starts small and grows rapidly. You'll begin with short intervals (two to four days) between practice sessions. Every time you successfully remember, you'll increase the interval (e.g., nine days, three weeks, two months, six months, etc.), quickly reaching intervals of years. This keeps your sessions challenging enough to continuously drive facts into your long-term memory. #Quote by Gabriel Wyner
Practice quotes by Frederick Lenz
#62. If you get in a battle with someone, you don't get their power if you win. Power is something that you have to acquire yourself, through self-inquiry and the practice of meditation. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Practice quotes by Bruce R. McConkie
#63. Obviously the holy practice (of polygamy) will commence again after the Second Coming of the Son of Man and the ushering in of the millennium. #Quote by Bruce R. McConkie
Practice quotes by Bill Watterson
#64. Calvin: I used to hate writing assignments, but now I enjoy them. I realized that the purpose of writing is to inflate weak ideas, obscure poor reasoning, and inhibit clarity. With a little practice, writing can be an intimidating and impenetrable fog! Want to see my book report?
Hobbes: (Reading Calvin's paper) "The Dynamics of Interbeing and Monological Imperatives in Dick and Jane: A Study in Psychic Transrelational Gender modes."
Calvin: Academia, here I come! #Quote by Bill Watterson
Practice quotes by David Paul Kirkpatrick
#65. More than happiness or joy or lower blood pressure, the practice of God's presence gives us meaning. Through this practice we become more closely aligned with Jesus and we learn His desire for us more completely.Life can be hard.
The Practice of The Presence of God makes it easier. As Brother Lawrence said, There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful than that of a continual conversation with God. #Quote by David Paul Kirkpatrick
Practice quotes by Aleister Crowley
#66. It is impossible to exaggerate the importance of performing these small ceremonies regularly, and being as nearly accurate as possible with regard to the times. You must not mind stopping in the middle of a crowded thoroughfare - lorries or no lorries - and saying the Adorations; and you must not mind snubbing your guest - or your host - if he or she should prove ignorant of his or her share of the dialogue. It is perhaps because these matters are so petty and trivial in appearance that they afford so excellent a training. They teach you concentration, mindfulness, moral and social courage, and a host of other virtues. #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Practice quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
#67. There's a swell book that's out of print now. Maybe Seven Stories will bring it out again. It's called The Writer and Psychoanalysis by a man who's now dead named Edmund Bergler. He claimed he had treated more writers than anyone else in his field, and being that he practiced in New York, he probably did. Bergler said that writers were fortunate in that they were able to treat their neuroses every day by writing. He also said that as soon as a writer was blocked, this was catastrophic because the writer would start to go to pieces. And so I said in a piece in Harper's, or a letter I wrote to Harper's, about "the death of the novel": People will continue to write novels, or maybe short stories, because they discover that they are treating their own neuroses. And I have said about the practice of the arts that practicing any art - be it painting, music, dance, literature, or whatever - is not a way to make money or become famous. It's a way to make your soul grow. So you should do it anyway. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Practice quotes by Joanne Greenberg
#68. I once had a patient who used to practice the most horrible tortures on himself, and when I asked him why he did such things, he said, 'Why, before the world does them.' I asked him then, 'Why not wait and see what the world will do?' and he said, 'Don't you see? It always come at last, but this way at least I am master of my own destruction. #Quote by Joanne Greenberg
Practice quotes by Beryl Bender Birch
#69. I really think there's an evolution to the practice and the individual no matter what brings you in, whether it's wine and yoga or chocolate and yoga or surfing and yoga ... #Quote by Beryl Bender Birch
Practice quotes by Young
#70. I encourage you boys to cultivate your sexual energy, to awaken the Kundalini and begin to raise it from the base chakra through the central nervous system, connecting it to your higher Self." I jokingly said, "Should I perform Tantric Sex day in and day out?" The entire group laughed at my joke before Dr. Henderson laughingly responded, "It is definitely easier to achieve this state of consciousness when you practice. A lot! Don't expect it to happen overnight. #Quote by Young
Practice quotes by Gregory Maguire
#71. But she wrote out some extra words on a piece of paper so Rain could practice reading. "Is this a magic spell?" the girl asked her.
"Don't let me get sappy on you, but when you get right down to it, every collection of letters is a magic spell, even if it is a moronic proclamation by the Emperor. Words have their impact, girl. Mind your manners. I may not know how to fly but I know how to read, and that's almost the same thing."
-Out of Oz #Quote by Gregory Maguire
Practice quotes by John Hagee
#72. The battle against good and evil is raging now! Look at your television programming and movie advertisements presenting the occult ... the demonic ... the satanic ... the practice of witchcraft and sorcery in popular books ... the open hostility toward Christianity and the revival of anti-Semitism. The fight is on for the hearts and minds of our children in ours homes, our schools, our universities, and our society. #Quote by John Hagee
Practice quotes by Lawrence Lessig
#73. And with a practice of writing comes a certain important integrity. A culture filled with bloggers thinks differently about politics or public affairs, if only because more have been forced through the discipline of showing in writing why A leads to B. #Quote by Lawrence Lessig
Practice quotes by Richard Bach
#74. Ask yourself the secret of your success. Listen to your answer, and practice it. #Quote by Richard Bach
Practice quotes by Samanth Subramanian
#75. It is the postscript to the war that offers the most revelatory and startling commentary on Dutugemunu's life. Despite his newfound wealth and his peactime luxuries, Dutugemunu wanders gloomily about his palace, too often remembering the carnage he wrought on the battlefield and worried over the deep karmic deficits he has incurred. The elders of the Sangha, the Buddhist clergy, notice this and send a delegation of eight monks to minister to his anguish.

'In truth, venerable sirs,' Dutugemunu tells the monks when they arrive, 'how can there be comfort to me in that I caused the destruction of a great army of myriads of men?'

'There is no hindrance on the way to heaven because of your acts,' one of the monks assures his king. Slaughtering Tamils is no moral mistake. Only the equivalent of one and a half men died at Dutugemunu's hands, according to the Sangha's official arithmetic, because the Tamils 'were heretical and evil and dies as though they were animals. You will make the Buddha's faith shine in many ways. Therefore, Lord of Men, cast away your mental confusion.'

Being thus exhorted, the great king was comforted; his kill rate would never disturb him again. He does, however, recall that, once upon a breakfast, he ate a red-pepper pod without consciously setting aside a portion of it for the Sangha, as was the royal practice. 'For this,' he decides, 'penance must be done by me.' A hierarchy of sin springs into being, in which dishonourin #Quote by Samanth Subramanian
Practice quotes by Joshua L. Liebman
#76. Tolerance is the positive and cordial effort to understand another's beliefs, practices, and habits without necessarily sharing or accepting them. #Quote by Joshua L. Liebman
Practice quotes by Warren E. Burger
#77. There can be no doubt that the practice of opening legislative sessions with prayer has become part of the fabric of our society. #Quote by Warren E. Burger
Practice quotes by Amit Ray
#78. Mindful leadership keeps you cool and energetic in any situation, so that you can make the best possible decisions. #Quote by Amit Ray
Practice quotes by Allen Iverson
#79. Practice? I mean, listen, we're talking about practice. Not a game. Not a game. Not a game. We're talking about practice. Not a game. Not the game. Not the game. We're talkin about practice, man. We're talkin about practice. We're taklin about practice, man. What are we talkin about? Practice. We're talkin about practice, man. #Quote by Allen Iverson
Practice quotes by Jane Austen
#80. Perhaps you are not sitting in this room, and I am not sitting by you. These are points in which a doubt is equally possible. Not keep a journal! How are your absent cousins to understand the tenour of your life in Bath without one? How are the civilities and compliments of every day to be related as they ought to be, unless noted down every evening in a journal? How are your various dresses to be remembered, and the particular state of your complexion, and curl of your hair to be described in all their diversities, without having constant recourse to a journal? My dear madam, I am not so ignorant of young ladies' ways as you wish to believe me; it is this delightful habit of journaling which largely contributes to form the easy style of writing for which ladies are so generally celebrated. Everybody allows that the talent of writing agreeable letters is peculiarly female. Nature may have done something, but I am sure it must be essentially assisted by the practice of keeping a journal. #Quote by Jane Austen
Practice quotes by Adi Shankara
#81. As gold purified in a furnace loses its impurities and achieves its own true nature, the mind gets rid of the impurities of the attributes of delusion, attachment and purity through meditation and attains Reality. #Quote by Adi Shankara
Practice quotes by Stanley Fish
#82. Know what makes a sentence more than a random list, practice constructing sentences and explaining what you have done, and you will know how to make sentences forever and you will know too when what you are writing doesn't make the grade because it has degenerated into a mere pile of discrete items. #Quote by Stanley Fish
Practice quotes by Sue Thoele
#83. We can learn to trust ourselves by inquiring within. To practice doing this, sit quietly, close your eyes, and for a minute focus your attention on your breathing. Gently visualize your inner wisdom as a graceful butterfly. Admire her beauty, and encourage your butterfly to sit on your shoulder and whisper her wisdom in your ear. Be still and listen. #Quote by Sue Thoele
Practice quotes by Ross Macdonald
#84. She said surprisingly, in a voice as thin as a flute:
"Are you a good man?"
"I like to think so," but her candor stopped me. "No," I said, "I'm not. I keep trying, when I remember to, but it keeps getting tougher every year. Like trying to chin yourself with one hand. You can practice off and on all your life, and never make it. #Quote by Ross Macdonald
Practice quotes by Jerome Bruner
#85. In sum, then, "thinking about thinking" has to be a principal ingredient of any empowering practice of education. #Quote by Jerome Bruner
Practice quotes by Otto Lilienthal
#86. One can get a proper insight into the practice of flying only by actual flying experiments ... The manner in which we have to meet the irregularities of the wind, when soaring in the air, can only be learnt by being in the air itself ... The only way which leads us to a quick development in human flight is a systematic and energetic practice in actual flying experiments. #Quote by Otto Lilienthal
Practice quotes by Dean King
#87. In Lincoln's day, Riley's account also spoke to a burning issue: the troubling institution of slavery. Inverting the American paradigm, it provided a useful perspective and helped expose the brutality of that abysmal practice. In our time, when one of the great challenges we face is to find common ground for Muslims, Christians, and Jews, the plight of the crew of the Commerce achieves a new relevance. It #Quote by Dean King
Practice quotes by Peter Thiel
#88. in a democratic society, a wrongful practice persists only when most people don't perceive it to be unjust. #Quote by Peter Thiel
Practice quotes by Thomas Brooks
#89. If it is not strong upon your heart to practice what you read, to what end do you read? To increase your own condemnation? If your light and knowledge be not turned into practice, the more knowing a man you are, the more miserable a man you will be in the day of recompense; your light and knowledge will more torment you than all the devils in hell. Your knowledge will be that rod that will eternally lash you, and that scorpion that will forever bite you, and that worm that will everlastingly gnaw you; therefore read, and labor to know that you may do
or else you are undone forever. #Quote by Thomas Brooks
Practice quotes by Alan Jacobs
#90. So let me conclude this chapter with a celebration of splitting--of the disciplined, principled preference for rejecting categories whenever we discern them at work. Again, this is not to say that we can live without them, but rather that we need to cultivate skepticism as a first response. The group solidarity matters to almost all of us in one way or another--it is the stuff of which both inner rings and genuine membership are made--on some fundamental level, as Dorothy Sayers once wrote, "What is repugnant to every human being is to be reckoned always as a member of a class and not as an individual person." The key word there is always: to be "reckoned...as a member of a class" Is sometimes useful, often necessary, but intolerably offensive as a universal practice. #Quote by Alan Jacobs
Practice quotes by Emile Durkheim
#91. A society whose members are united by the fact that they think in the same way in regard to the sacred world and its relations with the profane world, and by the fact that they translate these common ideas into common practices, is what is called a Church. In all history, we do not find a single religion without a Church. #Quote by Emile Durkheim
Practice quotes by Bernard Osei Annang
#92. Never doubt your ability unless you have put them into practice. #Quote by Bernard Osei Annang
Practice quotes by Mark Driscoll
#93. The truths of Christianity are constant, unchanging, and meant for all people, times, and places. But the methods by which truth is articulated and practiced must be culturally appropriated, and therefore constantly translated ... if doctrine is constant and practice is constantly changing, the result is living orthodoxy. #Quote by Mark Driscoll
Practice quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#94. Though Argaven might be neither sane nor shrewd, he had had long practice in the evasions and challenges and rhetorical subtleties used in conversation by those whose main aim in life was the achievement and maintenance of the shifgrethor relationship on a high level. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Practice quotes by Bill Monroe
#95. Practice every time you get a chance. #Quote by Bill Monroe
Practice quotes by Alexandra Katehakis
#96. Endow yourself with healthy self-esteem. What is the feeling tone in your life that radiates in you and makes you shine, that makes you feel whole, that makes you feel your heart? That feeling tone, which we long to hear from others, is the tone we want to practice with ourselves. That's where we want to live with ourselves. It doesn't happen from the outside in. That's why it's called self-esteem. #Quote by Alexandra Katehakis
Practice quotes by Nikki Rowe
#97. I find myself enjoying being alone a lot of the time, people come and people go and you have to find a way to be ok with both. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Practice quotes by Edith Wharton
#98. To read is not a virtue; but to read well is an art, and an art that only the born reader can acquire. The gift of reading is no exception to the rule that all natural gifts need to be cultivated by practice and discipline; but unless the innate aptitude exist the training will be wasted. It is the delusion of the mechanical reader to think that intentions may take the place of aptitude. #Quote by Edith Wharton
Practice quotes by Anne Lamott
#99. Everything was coming together by coming apart ... It is the most difficult Zen practice to leave people to their destiny, even though it's painful - just loving them, and breathing with them, and distracting them in a sweet way, and laughing with them ... if something was not my problem, I probably did not have the solution. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Practice quotes by Claudia Acevedo
#100. When a person is connected to its true essence, there is nothing more rewarding than continuously developing it; there is no money that can buy the pleasure of putting into practice the talents each person has. #Quote by Claudia Acevedo
Practice quotes by Katie Kacvinsky
#101. Sex only gets better, and we agree we'd like to practice. He tells me, speaking of practice, he can set up a training schedule. And now he rambles.
He inform me every morning will begin with some calisthenics followed by sex. Then we'll eat a breakfast rich in carbohydrates to maintain energy, followed by sex. In the evening, there'll be some warm-up stretches followed by sex. Then a cooldown followed by more sex. The ice cream, preferably chocolate. Then sleep to rest up for the morning practice.
I brush my lips across his warm shoulder. "I'm glad to see you're a normal healthy male. #Quote by Katie Kacvinsky
Practice quotes by Lao Tzu
#102. Practice emptiness to the extreme.
Keep stillness whole.
Myriad things act in concert.
I therefore watch their return.
All things flourish, and each returns to its root.

Return to the root is called Quietude.
Quietude is called Way of Life.
Way of Life is called Constant.

Acting without knowing this constant can be harmful.
Understanding this Constant is called receptivity, which is impartial.


Impartiality is Kingship.
Kingship is Heaven.
Heaven is the Tao.

Though you lose the body, you do not die. #Quote by Lao Tzu
Practice quotes by Satish Kumar
#103. Through yoga, meditation and other spiritual practices, we can learn the ways of personal equanimity. We can also learn how to use language in beneficial ways. #Quote by Satish Kumar

Practice quotes by Brittany Bowe
#106. For me, I always think about keeping my upper body relaxed, my hips level, and my right side down on the turn. If I work on nailing those three things at every practice, I hope that by the time I get into a race situation I can stay completely focused on the task at hand, and the rest will happen naturally. #Quote by Brittany Bowe
Practice quotes by Summer Sanders
#107. It's hard to go out and practice every single day, and you get really tired. But you have to believe in yourself. #Quote by Summer Sanders
Practice quotes by Herbert Spencer
#108. There can be little question that good composition is far less dependent upon acquaintance with its laws, than upon practice and natural aptitude. A clear head, a quick imagination, and a sensitive ear, will go far towards making all rhetorical precepts needless. #Quote by Herbert Spencer
Practice quotes by Michael Merzenich
#109. My brain power depends on my retained mastery of analyzing in detail what's happening in my world and in my mind and body. I must continue to practice to retain my constructive and analytic powers. The goal is to be a master of my environment. #Quote by Michael Merzenich
Practice quotes by Brene Brown
#110. Above all else, I want you to know that you are loved and lovable. You will learn this from my words and actions--the lessons on love are in how I treat you and how I treat myself.

I want you to engage with the world from a place of worthiness. You will learn that you are worthy of love, belonging, and joy every time you see me practice self-compassion and embrace my own imperfections.

We will practice courage in our family by showing up, letting ourselves be seen, and honoring vulnerability. We will share our stories of struggle and strength. There will always be room in our home for both.

We will teach you compassion by practicing compassion with ourselves first; then with each other. We will set and respect boundaries; we will honor hard work, hope, and perseverance. Rest and play will be family values, as well as family practices.

You will learn accountability and respect by watching me make mistakes and make amends, and by watching how I ask for what I need and talk about how I feel.

I want you to know joy, so together we will practice gratitude.

I want you to feel joy, so together we will learn how to be vulnerable.

When uncertainty and scarcity visit, you will be able to draw from the spirit that is a part of our everyday life.

Together we will cry and face fear and grief. I will want to take away your pain, but instead I will sit with you and teach you how to feel it.

Practice quotes by Dossie Easton
#111. Practice self-nurturing, not only to get you through hard times but to guide you into a loving relationship with yourself. When you follow through with a simple act like comforting yourself with homemade soup, bringing home a fragrant flower for your night table, or taking a sweet solitary walk in a beautiful place, then you get an experience of being kind to yourself that can answer all those questions about "what do they mean, love myself?" This question is more easily answered by doing than by thinking. #Quote by Dossie Easton
Practice quotes by Dogen
#112. Know that the true dharma emerges of itself [during the practice of zazen], clearing away hindrances and distractions. #Quote by Dogen
Practice quotes by Sallie Tisdale
#113. Then she took up her practice, not to prove her worth or to be seen, not in dignity or fear, but as though she were giving her whole life away as a gift to the world with every step. #Quote by Sallie Tisdale
Practice quotes by Virginia Woolf
#114. She took her hand and raised her brush. For a moment it stayed trembling in a painful but exciting ecstacy in the air. Where to begin?
that was the question at what point to make the first mark? One line placed on the canvas committed her to innumerable risks, to frequent and irrevocable decisions. All that in idea seemed simple became in practice immediately complex; as the waves shape themselves symmetrically from the cliff top, but to the swimmer among them are divided by steep gulfs, and foaming crests. Still the risk must run; the mark made. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Practice quotes by Donna Farhi
#115. One study on the treatment of asthma patients conducted by researchers John Goyeche, Dr. Ago, and Dr. Ikemi, suggests that any effective treatment should address suppressed emotions-such as anxiety and self-image-as well as the physical dimension. To achieve this, they encourage correction of poor posture, and helping the person relax the irrelevant respiratory muscles while restoring full diaphragmatic breathing. They also recommended finding ways for getting rid of excess mucus. The good news is that a well rounded breath practice will do all these things. #Quote by Donna Farhi
Practice quotes by Wes

Practice quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#117. There are men who practice Titiksha, and succeed in it. There are men who sleep on the banks of the Ganga in the midsummer sun of India, and in winter float in the waters of the Ganga for a whole day; they do not care. Men sit in the snow of the Himalayas, and do not care to wear any garment. What is heat? What is cold? Let things come and go, what is that to me, I am not the body. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Practice quotes by Benjamin Harrison

Practice quotes by John Boyle O'Reilly
#119. The adoption of gloves for all contests will do more to preserve the practice of boxing than any other conceivable means. It will give pugilism new life, not only as a professional boxer's art, but as a general exercise. #Quote by John Boyle O'Reilly
Practice quotes by Margaret Beckett
#120. In the UK what we've found is that even businesses which prided themselves already on their efficient management find that a really beady-eyed scrutiny of their resource management, with an eye to environmental best-practice and long term sustainability, produce fresh efficiency and fresh savings that actually shock those in the company #Quote by Margaret Beckett
Practice quotes by Geneen Roth
#121. When you ignore your belly, you become homeless. You spend your life trying to erase your own existence. Apologizing for yourself. Feeling like a ghost. Eating to take up space, eating to give yourself the feeling that you have weight here, you belong here, you are allowed to be yourself -- but never quite believing it because you don't sense yourself directly.

. . . I started teaching a simple belly meditation in which I asked people to become aware of sensations in their belly (numbness and emptiness count as sensations). Every time their mind wandered . . . I asked them to begin counting their breaths so they could anchor their concentration. Starting with the number one and saying it on the out breath, they'd count to seven and begin again. If they were able to stay concentrated on the sensations in their belly centers, they didn't need to use counting as a concentration anchor.

. . . you begin the process of bringing yourself back to your body, to your belly, to your breath because they -- not the mind medleys -- are here now. And it is only here, only now that you can make a decision to eat or not eat. To occupy your own body or to vacate your arms and your legs while still breathing and go through your days as a walking head.

. . . Meditation is a tool to shake yourself awake. A way to discover what you love. A practice to return yourself to your body when the mind medleys threaten to usurp your sanity. #Quote by Geneen Roth
Practice quotes by Masaaki Imai
#122. Japanese management practices succeed simply because they are good management practices. This success has little to do with cultural factors. And the lack of cultural bias means that these practices can be - and are - just as successfully employed elsewhere. #Quote by Masaaki Imai
Practice quotes by Randall Terry
#123. For us to think we can enjoy, understand and practice the Christian religion with just Matthew to Revelation is foolishness. #Quote by Randall Terry
Practice quotes by Sophie Swetchine
#124. The best of lessons, for a good many people, would be to listen at a keyhole. It is a pity for such that the practice is dishonorable. #Quote by Sophie Swetchine
Practice quotes by Theodore Parker
#125. To obtain a knowledge of duty, a man is not sent away, outside of himself, to ancient documents; for the only rule of faith a practice, the Word, is very nigh him, even in his heart, and by this word he is to try all documents. #Quote by Theodore Parker
Practice quotes by Landon Donovan
#126. I'm lucky to be doing what I love, and I appreciate that I can make a good living doing it. I love to play soccer-whether it's in a game, practice or playing with friends-so it isn't like I'm under pressure at all. #Quote by Landon Donovan
Practice quotes by Theodore L. Cuyler
#127. One day of good preaching is no match for six days of inconsistent practice. God will never honor His church with complete success until it completely honors Him. #Quote by Theodore L. Cuyler

Practice quotes by Sebastian Junger
#129. An earthquake achieves what the law promises but does not in practice maintain," one of the survivors wrote. "The equality of all men". #Quote by Sebastian Junger
Practice quotes by Francois Fenelon
#130. Do we accustom ourselves to see all things in the light of faith? Do we correct all our judgments by it? Alas! The greater part of Christians think and act like mere heathens; if we judge (as we justly may) of their faith by their practice, we must conclude they have no faith at all. #Quote by Francois Fenelon
Practice quotes by Jack Nicklaus
#131. I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a very sharp, in-focus picture of it in my head. #Quote by Jack Nicklaus
Practice quotes by A. G. Mohan
#132. Krishnamacharya's personal practice was always with long deep breathing and mental focus. Observe the position of his head, the lower abdomen and his mental focus. He was always concentrated on the inner alignment through breath. #Quote by A. G. Mohan
Practice quotes by Jack Kornfield
#133. The adult brain and nervous system grow and change throughout our lives. Until the very end, we are neurologically transformed by whatever we practice. We are not limited by the past. #Quote by Jack Kornfield
Practice quotes by Ron Suskind
#134. Trust is something you have to practice. Someday you're going to fall in love with someone, and you need to understand what trust is all about. What you doing now is developing bad practices of betraying people's trust. #Quote by Ron Suskind
Practice quotes by George Orwell
#135. The world sleeps peaceably in their beds while rough men practice violence on their behalf. #Quote by George Orwell
Practice quotes by Terry Eagleton
#136. Equally serious is the complaint that psychoanalysis as a medical practice is a form of oppressive social control, labelling individuals and forcing them to conform to arbitrary definitions of 'normality'. This charge is in fact more usually aimed against psychiatric medicine as a whole: as far as Freud's own views on 'normality' are concerned, the accusation is largely misdirected. Freud's work showed, scandalously, just how 'plastic' and variable in its choice of objects libido really is, how so-called sexual perversions form part of what passes as normal sexuality, and how heterosexuality is by no means a natural or self-evident fact. It is true that Freudian psychoanalysis does usually work with some concept of a sexual 'norm'; but this is in no sense given by Nature. #Quote by Terry Eagleton
Practice quotes by Stuart Scott
#137. I practice a lot. I practice in the winter when it's cold in Connecticut - a lot. I practice in my bedroom on the carpet - a lot. For all the practice I do, I should be a better golfer than I am. #Quote by Stuart Scott
Practice quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#138. If we harm someone else, we're inevitably also hurting ourselves. Some quality of sensitivity and awareness has to shut down for us to be able to objectify someone else, to deny them as a living, feeling being - someone who wants to be happy, just as we do. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg

Practice quotes by Lao-Tzu
#142. Nothing under heaven
is as yielding as water.
And yet in attacking the hard,
the unyielding,
nothing can surpass it.
Nothing can take its place.
The weak overcomes the strong,
the soft surpasses the hard.
In all the world, there's no one
who doesn't know this,
but no one can master the practice. #Quote by Lao-Tzu
Practice quotes by Ravi Zacharias
#143. Philosophically, you can believe anything, so long as you do not claim it to be true. Morally, you can practice anything, so long as you do not claim that it is a "better" way. Religiously, you can hold to anything, so long as you do not bring Jesus Christ into it. If a spiritual idea is eastern, it is granted critical immunity; if western, it is thoroughly criticized. Thus, a journalist can walk into a church and mock its carryings on, but he or she dare not do the same if the ceremony is from the eastern fold. Such is the mood at the end of the twentieth century. #Quote by Ravi Zacharias
Practice quotes by Sue Grafton
#144. The practice of baring all, analyzing every nuance embedded in a quarrel, is a surefire way to keep an argument alive. Better to establish a temporary peace and revisit the conflict later. Often, by then, both parties have decided the issue isn't worth the relationship. #Quote by Sue Grafton
Practice quotes by Simone Weil
#145. The entire virtue of religious practices can be conceived from the Buddhist tradition concerning the recitation of the name of the Lord. It is said that the Buddha made a vow to raise up to himself all those who recite his name with the desire to be saved by him, into the Land of Purity; and that because of this vow the recitation of the name of the Lord really has the virtue of transforming the soul. Religion is nothing else but this promise of God. Every religious practice, every rite, every liturgy is a form of the recitation of the name of the Lord, and must in principle really have virtue, the virtue of saving anyone devoted to it with desire. Every religion pronounces the name of the Lord in its own language. Most often, it is better for people to name God in their own native language rather than in a foreign language. Apart from exceptions, the soul is incapable of completely abandoning itself in the moment if it must impose on itself even a minor effort in searching for words in a strange language, even when they know it well . . . A change of the religion is for the soul like a change of language for the writer. Not every religion, it is true, is equally apt for the correct recitation of the name of the Lord. Certain ones, without a doubt, are very imperfect intermediaries. The religion of Israel, for example, must have truly been a very imperfect intermediary for having crucified Christ. The Roman religion scarcely even deserves the name of religion. But in a genera #Quote by Simone Weil
Practice quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#146. People on the worldly path, to them 'we' say, 'Practice complete honesty. If you cannot do that, then practice honesty within principle of limits. If you cannot do that and if you practice dishonesty, do it within limits. This principle is indeed what will take you further ahead. #Quote by Dada Bhagwan

Practice quotes by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
#148. If we want to cook food we need to leave the stove on continuously and not keep turning it on and off. If the heat is continuous, no matter whether it is high or low our food will eventually be cooked. Similarly, if we continuously apply effort, even if it is only a small effort, it is certain that we shall eventually experience the fruits of our practice. #Quote by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

The Wise and Foolish Builders 24Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash. #Quote by Anonymous

#152. I refused to worry about something I could not change, and I still refuse. Look, I'm like any other woman. All this evolved b.s. that I'm telling you is my mantra. It's not something I practice naturally. I had to surrender to not worrying about the way I looked, how much I weighed, because that's just part of the journey of having a baby. I am not a woman whose self-worth comes from her dress size. #Quote by Kristen Bell

Practice quotes by Scott Crow
#158. The realizations of anarchist ideas and practices are like sociopolitical ecosystems. Local versions resemble each other, but they are endlessly adaptive and everywhere different to meet their needs in their environments. Anarchism can be adapted to meet the culture, economics, ecology, and politics of various people or communities. That's the beauty of it. #Quote by Scott Crow
Practice quotes by Jen Calonita
#159. Elsa walked to her desk and looked down at the small porcelain jar and candlestick. She had been using them as stand-ins for the orb and scepter she would have to hold, like her father did during his coronation. As she had many times before, Elsa closed her eyes and tried to imagine herself inside the chapel where the ceremony would take place. She thought of the choir that would be singing in the balcony, and she could see the pulpit she would be standing at in front of the priest and all her people, as well as nobles and visiting dignitaries. With no family, she'd be up there alone. Elsa tried not to think about that as she imagined the priest placing the jeweled tiara on her head. Then he'd hold out the pillow with the orb and scepter for her to take. She couldn't wear her teal gloves during that portion of the ceremony, so she removed them for practice. She wore gloves all the time these days. Perhaps it was silly, but she thought the gloves helped her conceal her magic. This was her battle cry: Conceal it. Don't feel it. Don't let it show. #Quote by Jen Calonita

Practice quotes by Vaslav Nijinsky
#161. I am a man in death. I am not God. I am not man. I am a beast and a predator. I want to make love to prostitutes. I want to live like an unnecessary man.
I know that God wants this, and therefore I will live that way. I will live that way until He stops me. I will gamble on the Stock Exchange because I want to do so at other people's expense. I am an evil man. I do not love anyone. I wish harm to everyone and good to myself. I am an egoist. I am not God. I am a beast, a predator. I will practice masturbation and spiritualism. I will eat everyone I can get hold of. I will stop at nothing. I will make love to my wife's mother and my child. I will weep, but I will do everything God commands me to. I know that everyone will be afraid of me and will commit me to a lunatic asylum. But I don't care. I am not afraid of anything. I want death. I will blow my brains out if God wants it. #Quote by Vaslav Nijinsky
Practice quotes by Deepak Chopra
#162. I will practice acceptance. Today I will accept people, situations, circumstances, and events as they occur. I will know that this moment is as it should be, because the whole universe is as it should be. I will not struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment. My acceptance is total and complete. I accept things as they are this moment, not as I wish they were. #Quote by Deepak Chopra

Practice quotes by Kate Brian
#166. Wow," Finn said, looking her up and down. "Wander into a bad part of town?"
Megan looked down at the scrape on her left knee and the nasty bruise forming on her shin.
"No. It was…practice," Megan said. "I'm sorry, should I go?"
"No! No," Finn said, pulling a stool out from the wall. "Come in. Take a load off. You look like you could use it."
Megan smiled and inched into the shed, afraid to touch anything with any part of her body. She slipped sideways past his easel and sat down on the stool, which shifted under her weight. Megan threw her arms out for balance and Finn caught her hand.
"Sorry. It's kind of old," he said.
"No problem," Megan replied. She looked at his hand clamped around hers. He released her, clearing his throat and slapping his palm against his jeans. #Quote by Kate Brian

Practice quotes by Ree Drummond
#168. Once the wedding gift was out of the way, Marlboro Man and I had to check one last item off our list before we entered the Wedding Zone: premarital counseling. It was a requirement of the Episcopal church, these one-hour sessions with the semiretired interim priest who led our church at the time. Logically, I understood the reasoning behind the practice of premarital discussions with a man of the cloth. Before a church sanctions a marriage union, it wants to ensure the couple grasps the significance and gravity of the (hopefully) eternal commitment they're making. It wants to give the couple things to think about, ideas to ponder, matters to get straight. It wants to make sure it's not sending two young lovers into what could be an avoidable domestic catastrophe. Logically, I grasped the concept.
Practically, however, it was an uncomfortable hour of sitting across from a sweet minister who meant well and asked the right questions, but who had clearly run out of juice in the zest-for-marriage department. It was emotional drudgery for me; not only did I have to rethink obvious things I'd already thought about a thousand times, but I also had to watch Marlboro Man, a quiet, shy country boy, assimilate and answer questions put to him by a minister he'd only recently met on the subject of love, romance, and commitment, no less. Though he was polite and reverent, I felt for him. These were things cowboys rarely talked about with a third party. #Quote by Ree Drummond

Practice quotes by Maximus The Confessor
#172. When like the patriarchs we learn to dig wells of virtue and spiritual knowledge within ourselves by means of ascetic practice and contemplation, we will find within us Christ the spring of life (cf. Gen. 26:15-18). Wisdom commands us to drink from this spring, saying, 'Drink water from your own pitchers and from the spring of your own wells' (Prov. 5:15). If we do this we shall find that the treasures of wisdom truly are within us. #Quote by Maximus The Confessor
Practice quotes by Michael Novak

Practice quotes by William James
#179. If I refuse to stop a murder because I am in doubt whether it be not justifiable homicide, I am virtually abetting the crime. If I refuse to bale out a boat because I am in doubt whether my efforts will keep her afloat, I am really helping to sink her. If in the mountain precipice I doubt my right to risk a leap, I actively connive at my destruction. He who commands himself not to be credulous of God, of duty, of freedom, of immortality, may again and again be indistinguishable from him who dogmatically denies them. Scepticism in moral matters is an active ally of immorality. Who is not for is against. The universe will have no neutrals in these questions. In theory as in practice, dodge or hedge, or talk as we like about a wise scepticism, we are really doing volunteer military service for one side or the other. #Quote by William James
Practice quotes by Ajahn Chah
#180. Do not be in a hurry or try to push your practice. If you become peaceful, then accept it,; if you don't become peaceful, then accept that also. This is the nature of the mind. We must find our own practice and persevere. #Quote by Ajahn Chah
Practice quotes by Kevin Shields
#181. A lot of people at my school could play the "Stairway to Heaven" guitar solo, but they couldn't play three chords of a Ramones song if their life depended on it because they didn't have the strength or ability to do it. But all I did was practice that, and the style that I eventually fell into is more focused than people would actually imagine. #Quote by Kevin Shields

[Opal] 'Was?'

#186. Tsundoku

(Japanese) Buying books and not reading them; letting books pile up on shelves or floors or nightstands.

My parents used to joke about making furniture out of them; instead of being coffee table books, they could be the coffee table. Ditto on nightstands, counters, roofs. When we were kids, my brother and I, teased about always reading, built a wall. Right through the middle of the neighborhood, protected ourselves with fiction and with facts. I loved the encyclopedias best; the weight of them, how my grandmother made me walk with one on my head to practice being a lady. It wasn't until college that I built a grand stairway out of them; their glossy blue jackets looked like marble in the moonlight. I climbed it, to the top of the wall. Peering over, I found you, on the other side, alone in your bed, asleep. That was the first time you dreamed me. In your dream, you told me not to jump. But to be patient. (We were young then, it would be years before we'd meet) and then this morning, I found you in my bedroom. In your hands, How to Rope and Tie a Steer, a mug of coffee, a piece of slightly burned toast. I took The Sun Also Rises from the wall, made the first window into your heart. #Quote by Julia Klatt Singer

Practice quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#189. We must learn to love, learn to be kind, and this from the earliest youth; if education or chance give us no opportunity to practice these feelings, our soul becomes dry and unsuited even to understanding the tender inventions of loving people. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Practice quotes by Dave Barry
#190. As sensitive and broad-minded humans, we must never allow ourselves to be in any way judgmental of the religious practices of other people, even when these people clearly are raving space loons. #Quote by Dave Barry
Practice quotes by Deepak Chopra
#191. A child raised with spiritual skills will be able to answer the most basic questions about how the universe works; she will understand the source of creativity both within and outside herself; she will be able to practice nonjudgment, acceptance, and truth, which are the most valuable skills anyone can possess for dealing with other people; and she will be free from the crippling fear and anxiety about the meaning of life that is the secret dry rot inside the hearts of most adults, whether they can admit it or not. The deepest nurturing you can give your child is spiritual nurturing. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Practice quotes by Peter Matthiessen
#192. Zen has been called the "religion before religion," which is to say that anyone can practice, including those committed to another faith. And that phrase evokes that natural religion of our early childhood, when heaven and a splendorous earth were one. But soon the child's clear eye is clouded over by ideas and opinions, preconceptions and abstractions. Not until years later does an instinct come that a vital sense of mystery has been withdrawn. The sun glints through the pines, and the heart is pierced in a moment of beauty and strange pain, like a memory of paradise. After that day, at the bottom of each breath, there is a hollow place filled with longing. We become seekers without knowing that we seek, and at first, we long for something "greater" than ourselves, something apart and far away. It is not a return to childhood, for childhood is not a truly enlightened state. Yet to seek one's own true nature is "a way to lead you to your long lost home." To practice Zen means to realize one's existence moment after moment, rather than letting life unravel in regret of the past and daydreaming of the future. To "rest in the present" is a state of magical simplicity...out of the emptiness can come a true insight into our natural harmony all creation. To travel this path, one need not be a 'Zen Buddhist', which is only another idea to be discarded like 'enlightenment,' and like 'the Buddha' and like 'God. #Quote by Peter Matthiessen
Practice quotes by Stephen Levine
#193. An interesting way to practice dying is by opening to illness. Each time you get a cold or the flu use it as an opportunity to soften around the unpleasant and investigate how resistance turns pain into suffering, the unpleasant into the unbearable. Notice how discomfort attracts grief. Watch the shadows gather in the aching body. Hear them mutter in complaint and self-pity. #Quote by Stephen Levine
Practice quotes by Gautama Buddha
#194. Understand the suffering of worldly existence.
Abandon its causes of ignorance and selfishness.
Practice the path of meditation and compassion.
Awaken from suffering within Great Peace. #Quote by Gautama Buddha

#196. Teams can't prepare for me in batting practice. They can't find anyone who throws as slow as I do. #Quote by Dave LaPoint
Practice quotes by Deepak Chopra
#197. If you approach a difficult problem without struggle, your ego will at first try to take charge from years of habit. Do the minimum and stand back. Solutions incubate at a deep level, not at the speed demanded by your mind. Take a break and come back the next day. Allow the answers to arise from your center, even if it takes a while. However much you have to retrain yourself in this practice of Least Effort, the ability to come from your center is worth the highest price anyone could pay. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Practice quotes by Bryant McGill
#198. Humility puts others first because "first" takes on new meaning through the practice of humility. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Practice quotes by Wiffy Cox
#199. The subconscious mind is probably the most important factor in being a good golfer. It keeps distractions on the course from ruining a good round. You should practice, develop your swing, and do most of your thinking on the practice tee so that when you play in competition, you can hit the ball automatically. #Quote by Wiffy Cox
