Problem quotes by Bruce Chatwin
#1. And the formation of man is the most pressing problem facing humanity. #Quote by Bruce Chatwin
Problem quotes by Jess Rothenberg
#2. The problem is, there is absolutely nothing "fun" about falling in love. Nope. Mostly it just makes you feel sick and crazy and anxious and nervous that it's going to end miserably and ruin your whole life. And guess what: Then it does. #Quote by Jess Rothenberg
Problem quotes by Enrique Pena Nieto
#3. I will maintain the presence of a Mexican Army, and the Navy and police in the states of the Mexican Republic, where the problem of crime has increased. #Quote by Enrique Pena Nieto
Problem quotes by Zhang Ziyi
#4. We're still working out the details, but I'd be delighted to do the film. The problem at the moment is my busy schedule. Shooting on this film has been extended by a month, but I need to be in the U.S. by Dec. 20. #Quote by Zhang Ziyi
Problem quotes by Albert Laszlo Barabasi
#5. In retrospect, Euler's unintended message is very simple: Graphs or networks have properties, hidden in their construction, that limit or enhance our ability to do things with them. For more than two centuries the layout of Konigsberg's graph limited its citizens' ability to solve their coffeehouse problem. But a change in the layout, the addition of only one extra link, suddenly removed this constraint. #Quote by Albert Laszlo Barabasi
Problem quotes by Gina Prince-Bythewood
#6. There is a blueprint that young female singers seem to follow to make it, to make some noise when they first come out. And it's a hyper-sexualized persona. And the thing is that it works. And they do make noise. But the problem is if it's not authentic to you, then you're trapped in that persona. And you have to live that persona 24/7. #Quote by Gina Prince-Bythewood
Problem quotes by Melanie Joy
#7. Becoming aware of the intense suffering of billions of animals, and of our own participation in that suffering, can bring up painful emotions: sorrow and grief for the animals; anger at the injustice and deception of the system; despair at the enormity of the problem; fear that trusted authorities and institutions are, in fact, untrustworthy; and guilt for having contributed to the problem. Bearing witness means choosing to suffer. Indeed, empathy is literally 'feeling with.' Choosing to suffer is particularly difficult in a culture that is addicted to comfort
a culture that teaches that pain should be avoided whenever possible and that ignorance is bliss. We can reduce our resistance to witnessing by valuing authenticity over personal pleasure, and integration over ignorance. #Quote by Melanie Joy
Problem quotes by Barry Hughart
#8. The problem with poetic justice is that it never knows when to stop. #Quote by Barry Hughart
Problem quotes by Margaret Sanger
#9. The emergency problem of segregation and sterilization must be faced immediately. Every feeble-minded girl or woman of the hereditary type, especially of the moron class, should be segregated during the reproductive periodwe prefer the policy of immediate sterilization, of making sure that parenthood is absolutely prohibited to the feeble-minded. #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Problem quotes by Karl Pilkington
#10. That's the problem with having a bald head. It exaggerates the shape. #Quote by Karl Pilkington
Problem quotes by Jim Blinn
#11. This ambiguity is another example of a growing problem with mathematical notation: There aren't enough squiggles to go around. #Quote by Jim Blinn
Problem quotes by Nafisa Haji
#12. There is an old Arab Bedouin saying: I, against my brothers. I and my brothers against my cousins. I and my brothers and my cousins against the world. That is jungle law. It is the way of the world when the world is thrown into chaos. It is our job to avert that chaos, to fight against it, to resist the urge to become savage. Because the problem with such law is that if you follow it, you are always fighting against someone. #Quote by Nafisa Haji
Problem quotes by Norbert Wiener
#13. A single inattention may lose a chess game, whereas a single successful approach to a problem, among many which have been relegated to the wastebasket, will make a mathematician's reputation. #Quote by Norbert Wiener
Problem quotes by Jawaharlal Nehru
#14. If in the modern world wars have unfortunately to be fought (and they do, it seems) then they must be stopped at the first possible moment, otherwise they corrupt us, they create new problems and make our future even more uncertain. That is more than morality; it's sense. #Quote by Jawaharlal Nehru
Problem quotes by Bill Drayton
#15. What does an entrepreneur do? The first thing is they've given themselves permission to see a problem. Most people don't want to see problems ... Once you see a problem and you keep looking at it, you'll find an answer. #Quote by Bill Drayton
Problem quotes by Susan Orlean
#16. Every problem that society has, the library has, too, because the boundary between society and the library is porous; nothing good is kept out of the library, and nothing bad. #Quote by Susan Orlean
Problem quotes by M. Stanton Evans
#17. I call it the 'House of Reprehensibles.' We don't have any real political resistance to this growth of the domestic state across the board. So I'm much more focused on that than on the Patriot Act, which is a real effort, however inept, to deal with a real problem. #Quote by M. Stanton Evans
Problem quotes by Roberta Gellis
#18. Libraries shelter the spirit, provide food for the mind, and answer the questions raised by the problems of life. They have been the home of my heart since I was a very young child, in whatever place I happened to live. #Quote by Roberta Gellis
Problem quotes by Shelby Lynne
#19. I don't have a problem baring my emotions in music. That's one of the reasons I'm glad to have music in my life. I'm pretty resilient as far as being a human being. A lot of songs write themselves. #Quote by Shelby Lynne

Problem quotes by Donna Karan
#28. I design from instinct. It's the only way I know how to live. What feels good. What feels right. What is needed. Give me a problem and I will approach it creatively, from my gut. #Quote by Donna Karan
Problem quotes by Gabrielle Zevin
#29. Just because something is a small problem doesn't mean it shouldn't be addressed. Small injustices conceal larger ones" -Anya #Quote by Gabrielle Zevin
Problem quotes by Alexandra Fuller
#30. The problem with most people," Dad said once, not necessarily implying that I counted as most people, but not discounting the possibility either, "is that they want to be alive for as long as possible without having any idea whatsoever how to live. #Quote by Alexandra Fuller
Problem quotes by Henri Poincare
#31. How is it that there are so many minds that are incapable of understanding mathematics? ... the skeleton of our understanding, ... and actually they are the majority ... We have here a problem that is not easy of solution, but yet must engage the attention of all who wish to devote themselves to education. #Quote by Henri Poincare
Problem quotes by Elmore Leonard

Problem quotes by Allan G. Johnson
#35. A student of color in one of my classes, for example, once told me that she noticed my cutting her off during class, something she didn't think I did with white students. I could have weighed in with my professional authority and said it wasn't true, that she was imagining it, that I treated all my students that way, that she was being too sensitive, that I travel all over the country speaking about issues of inequality and injustice, so certainly I was above such things. But what I said to her was that I was truly sorry she'd had that experience. I wasn't aware of doing that, I told her, and the fact that I didn't consciously mean to was beside the point.

To respond in this way, I had to de-center myself from my privilege and make her experience and not mine the point of the conversation. I ended by telling her I would do everything I could to oay attention to this problem in the future to make sure it didn't happen again. #Quote by Allan G. Johnson
Problem quotes by Criswell Freeman
#36. The things that we mortals see as setbacks are, in truth,
simply God's way of redirecting our paths toward Him.
And what sometimes seems to be a terrible setback (to us)
can always be transformed into a great victory (for Him).
After all, no problem is too big for God.
Criswell Freeman (the man who helped me write this book) #Quote by Criswell Freeman
Problem quotes by Franco Bifo Berardi
#37. When dealing with a depression the problem is not to bring the depressed person back to his/her normality, to reintegrate behavior in the universal standards of normal social language. The goal is to change the focus of his/her depressive attention, to re-focalize, to deterritorialize the mind and the flow of expression. Depression is based on the stiffening of existential refrain, on the obsessive repetition of the stiffened refrain. The depressed person is unable to go out, to leave the repetitive refrain and s/he goes and goes again in the labyrinth. The goal of the schizoanalyst is to give him/her the possibility to see other landscapes, and to change the focus, to open some new ways of imagination. #Quote by Franco Bifo Berardi
Problem quotes by Alex Mack
#38. Actually, I was lucky enough; I was a heavyweight, so making weight for me was never that much of a problem in high school. Now, it would just be near impossible, because I'm a little heavier. #Quote by Alex Mack
Problem quotes by Leon Pinsker
#39. This is the kernel of the problem, as we see it: the Jews comprise a distinctive element among the nations under which they dwell, and as such can neither assimilate nor be readily digested by any nation. #Quote by Leon Pinsker
Problem quotes by Christoph Spielberg
#40. 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
Problem quotes by Leon Panetta
#41. In the zero-sum budget game, every dollar spent on this problem [illegal immigration] must be taken from somewhere else ... No, we should not tolerate people immigrating illegally. But we need to treat this issue honestly and fairly. #Quote by Leon Panetta
Problem quotes by Oliviero Toscani
#42. Advertising agencies don't care about a better world in the end. They are servants of their client: what the client wants is what they get. Their only problem is to not lose the budget. I think its a shame because advertising is so boring and it can be so interesting. They should ask more artists to make interesting campaigns. #Quote by Oliviero Toscani
Problem quotes by Bill Vaughan
#43. Money won't buy happiness, but it will pay the salaries of a huge research staff to study the problem. #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Problem quotes by Louise L. Hay
#44. The gateways to wisdom and learning are always open, and more and more I am choosing to walk through them. Barriers, blocks, obstacles, and problems are personal teachers giving me the opportunity to move out of the past and into the Totality of Possibilities. #Quote by Louise L. Hay
Problem quotes by Jeffrey Lagarias
#45. No problem is so intractable that something interesting cannot be said about it. #Quote by Jeffrey Lagarias
Problem quotes by Mary Roach
#46. The driving aesthetic of military style is uniformity. Whence the word uniform. From first inspection to Arlington National Cemetery, soldiers look like those around them: same hat, same boots, identical white grave marker. They are discouraged from looking unique, because that would encourage them to feel unique, to feel like an individual. The problem with individuals is that they think for themselves and of themselves, rather than for and of their unit. They're the lone goldfish on the old Pepperidge Farm bags, swimming the other way. They're a problem. #Quote by Mary Roach
Problem quotes by Henry R. Van Til
#47. The Christian is in the world, but not to be of it. This constitutes the basis of the perennial problem involved in the discussion of Christian culture. Because believers are not of the world, there have been many Christians who have taken a negative attitude toward culture. #Quote by Henry R. Van Til
Problem quotes by Thom Mayne
#48. The huge problem in our society is the enormous ignorance of the ideas that underlie modern art. #Quote by Thom Mayne
Problem quotes by Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
#49. Knowledge is a sacred cow, and my problem will be how we can milk her while keeping clear of her horns. #Quote by Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
Problem quotes by Dalai Lama
#50. Anger, jealousy, impatience, and hatred are the real troublemakers, with them problems cannot be solved. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Problem quotes by Terry Pratchett
#51. The problem with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and putting things in it. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Problem quotes by Hilary Kornblith
#52. When I first began studying philosophy, a good deal of what went on in analytic epistemology was focused on addressing the Gettier problem. At first, I became quite caught up in it, and the kind of analytical ingenuity required for the work appealed to me. After a while, however, I started to lose interest. #Quote by Hilary Kornblith
Problem quotes by Jim Gaffigan
#53. Every adult should know that the appropriate place to eat ice cream is on the couch in front of the TV, watching TLC. "(mouthful of ice cream) See, those Hoarders, they're the ones with the problem! #Quote by Jim Gaffigan
Problem quotes by Willie Nelson
#54. You'll never get ahead by blaming your problems on other people. #Quote by Willie Nelson
Problem quotes by Peter Singer
#55. Sometimes we know the best thing to do, but fail to do it. New year's resolutions are often like that. We make resolutions because we know it would be better for us to lose weight, or get fit, or spend more time with our children. The problem is that a resolution is generally easier to break than it is to keep. #Quote by Peter Singer
Problem quotes by Douglas Adams
#56. An SEP,' he said, 'is something that we can't see, or don't see, or our brain doesn't let us see, because we think that it's somebody else's problem. That's what SEP means. Somebody Else's Problem. The brain just edits it out, it's like a blind spot. If you look at it directly you won't see it unless you know precisely what it is. Your only hope is to catch it by surprise out of the corner of your eye. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Problem quotes by Toba Beta
#57. Some people do polarizing the religion against science.
I use both to solve a problem with two different kind of approach. #Quote by Toba Beta
Problem quotes by Robert Sheckley
#58. A lot of us don't want to be quite that serious about world problems. Our life is there to enjoy, not to be an eternal dissident, eternally unhappy with how things are and with the state of mankind. #Quote by Robert Sheckley
Problem quotes by Juliana Hatfield
#59. Puerto Rico has a stray dog problem. Tens of thousands of homeless canines - hundreds of thousands, by some estimates - live and die on the streets and beaches all over this Caribbean island of almost four million people. #Quote by Juliana Hatfield
Problem quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#60. Doing the right thing is not the problem. Knowing what the right thing is, that's the challenge. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Problem quotes by Mac Fletcher
#61. In marriage, a problem shared is a problem doubled. #Quote by Mac Fletcher
Problem quotes by N. T. Wright
#62. Of course there are people who think of 'heaven' as a kind of pie-in-the-sky dream of an afterlife to make the thought of dying less awful. No doubt that's a problem as old as the human race. #Quote by N. T. Wright
Problem quotes by Kelly Clarkson
#63. I'm not super conservative, and I have no problem with people being risque or owning your sexuality or even putting it out there. I have a problem when it's all you are because you're not being fair to yourself; you have more depth than this. #Quote by Kelly Clarkson
Problem quotes by Edwin Catmull
#64. Success hides problems ... you don't need to address problems. #Quote by Edwin Catmull
Problem quotes by Lewis Black
#65. My problem has always been with authority, and I'm sure if anybody understands that, it's people in uniform. #Quote by Lewis Black
Problem quotes by Gary Weiss
#66. One problem with the focus on speculation is that it tends to promote the growth of the great intellectual cancer of our times: conspiracy theories. #Quote by Gary Weiss
Problem quotes by Linus Pauling
#67. The problem of an atomic war must not be confused by minor problems such as Communism versus capitalism. An atomic war would kill everyone, left, right, or center. #Quote by Linus Pauling
Problem quotes by Julius Nyerere
#68. Having come into contact with a civilization which has over-emphasized the freedom of the individual, we are in fact faced with one of the big problems of Africa in the modern world. Our problem is just this: how to get the benefits of European society - benefits that have been brought about by an organization based upon the individual - and yet retain African's own structure of society in which the individual is a member of a kind of fellowship. #Quote by Julius Nyerere
Problem quotes by Chris Anderson
#69. But our tendency to give scarcity more attention than abundance has caused us to ignore the many examples of abundance that have arisen in our own lifetime, like corn, for starters. The problem is that once something becomes abundant, we tend to ignore it, #Quote by Chris Anderson
Problem quotes by Jim Edmonds
#70. If it doesn't seem like I'm working hard sometimes, that's someone else's problem. #Quote by Jim Edmonds
Problem quotes by Philip K. Dick
#71. Sometimes, I guess, an over-valent idea enters the mind as a problem, or imaginary problem. This is not so rare. You are getting ready for bed, late at night, and all of a sudden the idea comes into your mind that you did not shut off your car lights. You look out the window at your car-which is parked in your driveway in plain sight-and you can see that it shows no lights. But then you think: Maybe I left the lights on and they stayed on so long that they ran the battery down. So to be sure, I must go out and check. You put on your robe and go out, unlock the car door, get in and pull on the headlight switch. The lights come on. You turn them off, get out, lock up the car and return to the house. What has happened is that you have gone crazy; you have become psychotic. Because you have discounted the testimony of your senses; you could see out the window that the car lights were not on, yet you went out to check anyhow. This is the cardinal factor: you saw but you did not believe. Or, conversely, you did not see something but you believed it anyhow. Theoretically, you could travel between your bedroom and the car forever, trapped in an eternal closed loop of unlocking the car, trying the light switch, returning to the house-in this regard you herewith are a machine. You are no longer human. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Problem quotes by Milton Berle
#72. The problem with life is, by the time you can read women like a book, your library card has expired. #Quote by Milton Berle
Problem quotes by Doreen Virtue
#73. What seems to be a problem or block is often really a Blessing in Disguise #Quote by Doreen Virtue
Problem quotes by Lisa Randall
#74. The problem is that string theory is defined at an energy scale that is about ten million billion times larger than those we can experimentally explore with our current instruments. #Quote by Lisa Randall
Problem quotes by Norton Juster
#75. You can't improve sound by having only silence. The problem is to use each at the proper time. #Quote by Norton Juster
Problem quotes by Nick Cave
#76. At some point you start seeing the difference between what you really want, and what is your priority order. I feel that today I know what I want. That's the problem with perspective, as well as focus and concentration. #Quote by Nick Cave
Problem quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#77. I have spent much of my studies searching for the right question by which I might fully understand the breach between the world and me. I have not spent my time studying the problem of 'race' - 'race' itself is just a restatement and retrenchment of the problem. You see this from time to time when some dullard - usually believing himself white - proposes that the way forward is a grand orgy of black and white, ending only when we are all beige and thus the same 'race.' But a great number of 'black' people are already beige. And the history of civilization is littered with dead 'races' (Frankish, Italian, German, Irish) later abandoned because they no longer serve their purpose - the organization of people beneath, and beyond, and the umbrella of rights. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Problem quotes by Lenore Look
#78. That's the problem with stinky tofu. It's so yummy, #Quote by Lenore Look
Problem quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#79. Smoking is a worldwide problem, almost in every nation and culture. The fight against these menace is so comprehensive that even the very same package of cigarettes now carry warning to its potential victims. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Problem quotes by William S. Burroughs
#80. As soon as you have a problem, it's insoluble. These things should never have been allowed to happen. #Quote by William S. Burroughs
Problem quotes by Kirby Howell
#81. Given the chance, would I go back? Back to the time when my parents were alive? When my biggest problem was a past-due paper? When I didn't need to know how to take care of myself, ride a horse, or defend someone I loved? Back to the time when I didn't know Grey? #Quote by Kirby Howell
Problem quotes by Robert Breault
#82. For lack of an occasional expression of love, a relationship strong at the seams can wear thin in the middle. #Quote by Robert Breault
Problem quotes by Dave Ramsey
#83. A natural saver is great until he never spends and is tight-fisted with giving. A natural spender is great until she finds herself deeply in debt and unable to give. A natural giver is great until there are no savings when a problem arises and there is no personal enjoyment of money. #Quote by Dave Ramsey
Problem quotes by Andy Andrews
#84. In times of adversity, you don't have a problem to deal with; you have a choice to make. #Quote by Andy Andrews
Problem quotes by K.C. Wells
#85. Scuse me diary ... gotta take care of a pressing problem in my jeans right now.

Same day - later.

What? At least I didn't come over your nice, clean pages, right? #Quote by K.C. Wells
Problem quotes by Min Zhou
#86. We have received a dog with serious eye problems and a skin disease in hopeless stage. The person who brought it here demanded we cure it for free and refused the idea of euthanasia to end its pain. #Quote by Min Zhou
Problem quotes by Mary Beth McKenzie
#87. Sometimes working on one painting will help solve a problem in another painting. #Quote by Mary Beth McKenzie
Problem quotes by Karen Hawkins
#88. Though he may dally with loose women, he's been raised a gentleman. He would never touch me unless I gave him permission." He might use incredibly powerful seduction tactics, but that was her problem, not Angus's.
"Aye," Mary said. "Don't ye remember how the miss took care o' the squire's son when he tried to kiss her in the garden?" She beamed at Sophia. "That was well done."
Sophia grinned. "He limped for a week"
Angus grunted. "The squire's son isn't half the man this one is. This is no boy ye're dealin' with here. He's a man's man;ye can see it in his eyes."
She placed a hand on his arm. "Angus, if it will make you feel better, I promise to call for help if MacLean so much as looks askance at me. #Quote by Karen Hawkins
Problem quotes by Lunga Noélia Izata
#89. We went to my friend's place to continue hanging out and I fell asleep on her couch. I was dreaming and I felt something poking me, as a writer I need to be specific and use description to take my readers to the place but I don't want to take you guys there. I continued to feel poked on a part of my body that I saved for seventeen years. The poke later became touching, and I tried to stop it but I couldn't. I thought it was sleep paralysis but this time the demon was human. I felt so powerless, like I was part of the marvel universe and someone had taken my power. I never told anyone about it, because they would blame it on drinking problems. I admit that I have a drinking problem, but I am pretty sure he has a 'lack of humanity problem'. At least, alcohol does not change character. #Quote by Lunga Noélia Izata
Problem quotes by Millicent Ashby
#90. I ceased the search to listen again, what the problem was. What's going on at home? Why was Luccas calling out Jane's name? What happened? Why could I hear him without connecting directly to him? I shook my head, but screams pierced through. I moved the shelf on its side, a loud crashing that startled the men outside. Falling to my knees, I covered my ears to them. My head banged against the metal and stayed there. "What in the name of Hera am I going to do?" I asked the air. The screams stopped but for how long? How long would silence be until they resumed? I raised my head, gently pulling my hands away and listened. Silence. Where were the men chasing me? Did they give in and go home? No, that would have been too easy. Saain would slay each man for leaving a traitor alive. #Quote by Millicent Ashby
Problem quotes by Frank Carlucci
#91. The problem is that neither the M1 nor the M60 or indeed neither any tank, has sufficient ground pressure to drive a [bulldozer] blade into even marginally hard ground. They are not bulldozers, they are tanks, whether you are talking about the M1 or the M60's. So if you are going to dig in a tank, you need to have some kind of equipment. #Quote by Frank Carlucci
Problem quotes by Danny Boyle
#92. The great thing with film is that it doesn't have an ego. It's just a film. Everybody that makes them has an ego, and the problem with awards and stuff like that is that it always affects the egos, and everyone gets stained by it in some way. And that can be fine and very innocent, but it can be horrible as well. #Quote by Danny Boyle
Problem quotes by Clay Shirky
#93. The difference between what all the people can do individually and the global consumption of nonrenewable resources is huge. The tension is ... what will it take to get people to act in concert? There isn't any additive solution to the problem. It will be both governmental and social because that's the scale of the problem. #Quote by Clay Shirky
Problem quotes by Bethanne Snodgrass
#94. Many people have what are called hypermobile joints, which means that there is more "play" in their range of joint motion. These women (and men) are much more susceptible to the effects of gravity and muscle-overloading imbalances than are people with tighter joint structures. Physical therapists are very familiar with this problem and know that these patients are a particular challenge. A large-breasted woman with hypermobile joints is much more likely to be symptomatic from her breast weight than is a woman with "normal" joint range of motion. #Quote by Bethanne Snodgrass
Problem quotes by Judith Butler
#95. Revenge tries to solve the problem of vulnerability. If I strike back, I transfer vulnerability from myself to the other. And yet by striking back I produce a world in which my vulnerability to injury is increased by the likelihood of another strike. So it seems as if I'm getting rid of my vulnerability and instead locating it with the other, but actually I'm heightening the vulnerability of everyone and I'm heightening the possibility of violence that happens between us. #Quote by Judith Butler
Problem quotes by Robert Musil
#96. Man is indisputably endowed with reason; the problem is only how he uses his reason in the company of others. #Quote by Robert Musil
Problem quotes by Liz Prince
#97. Could my problem have been that I was looking for validation in the wrong places all along? #Quote by Liz Prince
Problem quotes by Andrew Dice Clay
#98. I always believed you could fix whatever problems. #Quote by Andrew Dice Clay
Problem quotes by Jenson Button
#99. I need to develop a car and engineer a car in a position that feels comfortable for me, and I don't think anyone can do a better job than I can in that position. The problem for me is if I can't get the car there I do struggle more than some. #Quote by Jenson Button
Problem quotes by Stephen Kelman
#100. What your problem is, you're all just a raindrop. One of an endless number. If only you'd just accept it, things would be so much easier. Say it with me: I am a drop in the ocean. I am neighbour, nation, north, and nowhere. I am one among many and we all fall together.
Or maybe I'm just a rat with wings and I don't know what I'm talking about. #Quote by Stephen Kelman
Problem quotes by Sarah Parcak
#101. People were looting tombs 5,000 years ago in Egypt as soon as people were buried, but the problem is only getting worse and worse. #Quote by Sarah Parcak
Problem quotes by John C. Maxwell
#102. The size of your miracle depends on the size of your problem. #Quote by John C. Maxwell
Problem quotes by Drew Magary
#103. I saw her dying on the screen, and I had to fight the urge to turn it off, because it was just so easy to do that and not deal with it--to let her be some distant problem I didn't have to acknowledge. #Quote by Drew Magary
Problem quotes by John Dominic Crossan
#104. Augustus came from a miraculous conception by the divine and human conjunction of Apollo and Atia. How does the historian respond to that story? Are there any who take it literally or even bracket its transcendental claims as beyond historical judgment or empirical test? Classical historians, no matter how religious, do not usually do so. That divergence raises an ethical problem for me. Either all such divine conceptions, from Alexander to Augustus and from the Christ to the Buddha, should be accepted literally and miraculously or all of them should be accepted metaphorically and theologically. It is not morally acceptable to say directly and openly that our story is truth but yours is myth; ours is history but yours is lie. It is even less morally acceptable to say that indirectly and covertly by manufacturing defensive or protective strategies that apply only to one's own story. This, then, #Quote by John Dominic Crossan
Problem quotes by Chogyam Trungpa

#106. The thinking person has the strange characteristic to like to create a fantasy in the place of the unsolved problem, a fantasy that stays with the person even when the problem has been solved and truth made its appearance. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Problem quotes by John Garamendi
#107. Well, actually, if you can stay in your home that is a better deal for the neighborhood. It's certainly a better deal for the person that is in their home, rather than to be on the street and for that house to go into foreclosure and become a problem for the whole community. #Quote by John Garamendi
Problem quotes by Jamin Goggin
#108. How we handle our disappointment with God reveals the heart of our idolatry. But that is the very point! The dryness God ushers in to our lives is for the very purpose of bringing these idolatries to the surface. This is why dryness is not a problem to be fixed. This is not a season to work through. This is the high calling of God to be present with him wherever he leads, and to utilize this season to be with him who is always with us, even when we feel like he has abandoned us. #Quote by Jamin Goggin

Problem quotes by Doris Lessing
#110. Arthur Deikman's prime and particular contribution, apart from drawing attention to the problem, was to point out how much cultish behaviour goes on unrecognised, in, for instance, business life or in apparently harmless organisations, religious or philanthropic. It is useful to ask oneself the question: do I feel superior because I belong to - whatever it is? Do I look down on people outside? Perhaps the most easily seen feature of a cult s that: WE are better than THEM. It is salutary to recognise how often in a day we feel disapproval or superiority, matching ourselves with 'outsiders' ... #Quote by Doris Lessing
Problem quotes by Francine Rivers
#111. Have you ever been to the beach and wanted to feed the seagulls? The problem is you tear off a little crust from your sandwich and toss it to one, and ten more show up. Toss a little more and a flock descends. You start to wonder: if I run out of bread, will I become the meal?
Turkeys are different. They startle easily and run for the barn. In the wild, they run for the hills. Of course, they're very tasty. Benjamin Franklin thought them majestic enough to be an emblem for our country. I'm sorry, but Thanksgiving would be downright depressing. There's our national symbol lying stuffed and roasted and ready to carve up for hungry guests.
And then we have the eagles. Our forefathers were trained in the Bible. […]They would have known Isaiah 40:31. "Those who wait upon the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary." They were making war on the greatest power in the world of the time; the world was watching them. What could this band of commoners do?
What troubles me about our country today is how many seagulls there are, scrambling for more. Remember the movie "Finding Nemo"? "Mine, mine, mine!" And we sure have a lot of gutless turkeys running for the barn whenever hard decisions have to be made; like how to keep our country solvent so our children won't be in soup lines…
Where are the eagles? That's what I want to know. Please, God, we need us some eagles! #Quote by Francine Rivers

Problem quotes by Mark Blyth
#113. The "German problem" after 1970 became how to keep up with the Germans in terms of efficiency and productivity. One way, as above, was to serially devalue, but that was beginning to hurt. The other way was to tie your currency to the deutsche mark and thereby make your price and inflation rate the same as the Germans, which it turned out would also hurt, but in a different way.

The problem with keeping up with the Germans is that German industrial exports have the lowest price elasticities in the world. In plain English, Germany makes really great stuff that everyone wants and will pay more for in comparison to all the alternatives. So when you tie your currency to the deutsche mark, you are making a one-way bet that your industry can be as competitive as the Germans in terms of quality and price. That would be difficult enough if the deutsche mark hadn't been undervalued for most of the postwar period and both German labor costs and inflation rates were lower than average, but unfortunately for everyone else, they were. That gave the German economy the advantage in producing less-than-great stuff too, thereby undercutting competitors in products lower down, as well as higher up the value-added chain. Add to this contemporary German wages, which have seen real declines over the 2000s, and you have an economy that is extremely hard to keep up with. On the other side of this one-way bet were the financial markets. They looked at less dynamic economies, such as the Un #Quote by Mark Blyth

#119. While generosity may be the antidote for the dizzying effects of wealth, your appetite for more may function as an antidote against God-honoring generosity. Your appetite for more stuff, status, and security has the potential to quash your efforts to be generous. And that's a problem. #Quote by Andy Stanley

Problem quotes by Richard John Neuhaus
#121. Consumerism is, quite precisely, the consuming of life by the things consumed. It is living in a manner that is measured by having rather than being ... and consumerism is hardly the sin of the rich. The poor, driven by discontent and envy, may be as consumed by what they do not have as the rich are consumed by what they do have. The question is not, certainly not most importantly, a question about economics. It is first and foremost a cultural and moral problem requiring a cultural and moral remedy. #Quote by Richard John Neuhaus
Problem quotes by Siddhartha Mukherjee
#122. The problem with racial discrimination, though, is not the inference of a person's race from their genetic characteristics. It is quite the opposite: it is the inference of a person's characteristics from their race. The question is not, can you, given an individual's skin color, hair texture, or language, infer something about their ancestry or origin. That is a question of biological systematics -- of lineage, taxonomy, of racial geography, of biological discrimination. Of course you can -- and genomics as vastly refined that inference. You can scan any individual genome and infer rather deep insights about a person's ancestry, or place of origin. But the vastly more controversial question is the converse: Given a racial identity -- African or Asian, say -- can you infer anything about an individual's characteristics: not just skin or hair color, but more complex features, such as intelligence, habits, personality, and aptitude? /I/ Genes can certainly tell us about race, but can race tell us anything about genes? /i/

To answer this question, we need to measure how genetic variation is distributed across various racial categories. Is there more diversity _within_ races or _between_ races? Does knowing that someone is of African versus European descent, say, allow us to refine our understanding of their genetic traits, or their personal, physical, or intellectual attributes in a meaningful manner? Or is there so much variation within Africans and Europeans that _i #Quote by Siddhartha Mukherjee

Problem quotes by David Harvey
#124. 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

My mind had shut down, given itself over to the pleasure coursing through me and the anticipation of where his next kiss would land. "Am I?" he repeated and he nipped at my neck. I gasped and shook my head, unable to think. He had me pushed up against the door now, his hips hard against mine. "The problem with wanting," he whispered, his mouth trailing along my jaw until it hovered over my lips, "is that it makes us weak." And then, at last, when I thought I couldn't bear it any longer, he brought his mouth down on mine. His #Quote by Leigh Bardugo

The fundamental problem you have anywhere is when people think their lives and the lives of their children don't matter, they they are somehow disposable, just like a paper napkin after a lunch at a restaurant or something, if we want our freedom to be in deed as well as word in America, we have to make people feel that everybody matters again. #Quote by William J.

If every university president said, 'The revenue producing sports: basketball, football - potentially revenue producing at most universities - maybe in a few cases women's basketball, if every one of them had a monitor that reported directly to the university president and no 'student-athlete' ever gets into this college or university who could not plausibly be admitted if we did not have a football or basketball team, end of problem.

Problem quotes by Anne Serling
#138. On a deeper level, the film [Seven Days in May] displays several themes that are important to my father throughout his career. Prime among these is not succumbing to fear born of ignorance. In the nuclear age, he seems to be telling us, we can't throw up our hands in helplessness over the enormity of the problem. With the stakes as dire as they are, we must all work positively to change things for the better. I think that is why he believes so firmly in the idea of the United Nations. As in 'Twilight Zone's' "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street", my dad is warning us that the greatest threat we face is if a potential enemy uses our fears to get us to start destroying ourselves. #Quote by Anne Serling

#139. I don't have a problem with someone using their talents to become successful, I just don't think the highest calling is success. Things like freedom and the expansion of knowledge are beyond success, beyond the personal.

Practically speaking, the first step in this direction is only being taken now, today. #Quote by Mikhail Kalinin
Problem quotes by Paulo Coelho
#150. Becoming conscious of three important things:
First, as soon as people decide to confront a problem, they realize that they are far more capable than they thought they were.
Second, all energy and all knowledge come from the same unknown source, which we usually call God. What I've tried to do in my life, ever since I first started out on what I believe to be my path, is to honour that energy, to connect up with it every day, to allow myself to be guided by the signs, to learn by doing and not by thinking about doing.
Third, that no one is alone in their troubles; there is always someone else thinking, rejoicing, or suffering in the same way, and that gives us the strength to confront the challenge before us. #Quote by Paulo Coelho

Problem quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#154. Young Tchitcherine was the one who brought up political narcotics. Opiates of the people.

Wimpe smiled back. An old, old smile to chill even the living fire in Earth's core. "Marxist dialectics? That's not an opiate, eh?"

"It's the antidote."

"No." It can go either way. The dope salesman may know everything that's ever going to happen to Tchitcherine, and decide it's no use - or, out of the moment's velleity, lay it right out for the young fool.

"The basic problem," he proposes, "has always been getting other people to die for you. What's worth enough for a man to give up his life? That's where religion had the edge, for centuries. Religion was always about death. It was used not as an opiate so much as a technique - it got people to die for one particular set of beliefs about death. Perverse, natürlich, but who are you to judge? It was a good pitch while it worked. But ever since it became impossible to die for death, we have had a secular version - yours. Die to help History grow to its predestined shape. Die knowing your act will bring will bring a good end a bit closer. Revolutionary suicide, fine. But look: if History's changes are inevitable, why not not die? Vaslav? If it's going to happen anyway, what does it matter?"

Problem quotes by Mark Fisher
#158. [I]t is a mistake to rush to impose the individual ethical responsibility that the corporate structure deflects. This is the temptation of the ethical which, as Zizek has argued, the capitalist system is using in order to protect itself in the wake of the credit crisis - the blame will be put on supposedly pathological individuals, those' abusing the system', rather than on the system itself. But the evasion is actually a two step procedure - since structure will often be invoked (either implicitly or openly) precisely at the point when there is the possibility of individuals who belong to the corporate structure being punished. At this point, suddenly, the causes of abuse or atrocity are so systemic, so diffuse, that no individual can be held responsible… But this impasse - it is only individuals that can be held ethically responsible for actions, and yet the cause of these abuses and errors is corporate, systemic - is not only a dissimulation: it precisely indicates what is lacking in capitalism. What agencies are capable of regulating and controlling impersonal structures? How is it possible to chastise a corporate structure? Yes, corporations can legally be treated as individuals - but the problem is that corporations, whilst certainly entities, are not like individual humans, and any analogy between punishing corporations and punishing individuals will therefore necessarily be poor. And it is not as if corporations are the deep-level agents behind everything; they are th #Quote by Mark Fisher

Problem quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#160. I depend on my son because I want him to be something that I am not. He is the fulfillment of all my hopes, my desires; he is my immortality, my continuation. So my relationship with my son, with my wife, with my children, with my neighbors, is a state of psychological dependency, and I am fearful of being in a state in which there is no dependence. I do not know what that means, therefore I depend on books, on relationship, on society, I depend on property to give me security, position, prestige. And if I do not depend on any of these things, then I depend on the experiences that I have had, on my own thoughts, on the greatness of my own pursuits.

The problem is not how not to depend, but just to see the fact that we do depend. Where there is attachment there is no love. Because you do not know how to love, you depend, and…where there is dependency there is fear. I am talking of psychological dependency, not of your dependence on the milkman to bring you milk, or your dependence on the railway, or on a bridge. It is this inward psychological dependency - on ideas, on people, on property that breeds fear. So, you cannot be free from fear as long as you do not understand relationship, and relationship can be understood only when the mind watches all its relationships, which is the beginning of self-knowledge. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti

Problem quotes by Thomas Piketty
#162. I belong to a generation that came of age listening to news of the collapse of the Communist dicatorships and never felt the slightest affection or nostalgia for those regimes or for the Soviet Union. I was vaccinated for life against the conventional but lazy rhetoric of anticapitalism, some of which simply ignored the historic failure of Communism and much of which turned its back on the intellectual means necessary to push beyond it. I have no interest in denouncing inequality or capitalism per se - especially since social inequalities are not in themselves a problem as long as they are justified, that is, "founded only upon common utility," as article 1 of the 1789 Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen proclaims. #Quote by Thomas Piketty

Problem quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#164. I think if you wanted a peaceful marriage and orderly household, you should have proposed to any one of the well-bred simpletons who've been dangled in front of you for years. Ivo's right: Pandora is a different kind of girl. Strange and marvelous. I wouldn't dare predict-" She broke off as she saw him staring at Pandora's distant form. "Lunkhead, you're not even listening. You've already decided to marry her, and damn the consequences."
"It wasn't even a decision," Gabriel said, baffled and surly. "I can't think of one good reason to justify why I want her so bloody badly."
Phoebe smiled, gazing toward the water. "Have I ever told you what Henry said when he proposed, even knowing how little time we would have together? 'Marriage is far too important a matter to be decided with reason.' He was right, of course."
Gabriel took up a handful of warm, dry sand and let it sift through his fingers. "The Ravenels will sooner weather a scandal than force her to marry. And as you probably overheard, she objects not only to me, but the institution of marriage itself."
"How could anyone resist you?" Phoebe asked, half-mocking, half-sincere.
He gave her a dark glance. "Apparently she has no problem. The title, the fortune, the estate, the social position... to her, they're all detractions. Somehow I have to convince her to marry me despite those things." With raw honesty, he added, "And I'm damned if I even know who I am outside of them."

Problem quotes by Douglas R. Hofstadter
#173. Perhaps the greatest contradiction in our lives, the hardest to handle, is the knowledge 'There was a time when I was not alive, and there will come a time when I am not alive.' On one level, when you 'step out of yourself' and see yourself as 'just another human being', it makes complete sense. But on another level, perhaps a deeper level, personal nonexistence makes no sense at all. All that we know is embedded inside our minds, and for all that to be absent from the universe is not comprehensible. This is a basic undeniable problem of life... #Quote by Douglas R. Hofstadter

Problem quotes by Margaret Thatcher
#175. I think we have gone through a period when too many children and people have been given to understand 'I have a problem, it is the government's job to cope with it!' or 'I have a problem, I will go and get a grant to cope with it!'; 'I am homeless, the government must house me!' and so they are casting their problems on society and who is society?
"There is no such thing! There are individual men and women and there are families, and no government can do anything except through people and people look to themselves first.
"It is our duty to look after ourselves and then also to help look after our neighbour and life is a reciprocal business and people have got the entitlements too much in mind without the obligations. #Quote by Margaret Thatcher
Problem quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#176. Joseph Stiglitz, with two colleagues, the Orszag brothers (Peter and Jonathan), looked at the very same Fannie Mae. They assessed, in a report, that "on the basis of historical experience, the risk to the government from a potential default on GSE debt is effectively zero."* Supposedly, they ran simulations - but didn't see the obvious. They also said that the probability of a default was found to be "so small that it is difficult to detect." It is statements like these and, to me, only statements like these (intellectual hubris and the illusion of understanding of rare events) that caused the buildup of these exposures to rare events in the economy. This is the Black Swan problem that I was fighting. This is Fukushima. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Problem quotes by Tomi Adeyemi
#177. Children of Blood and Bone was written during a time where I kept turning on the news and seeing stories of unarmed black men, women, and children being shot by the police. I felt afraid and angry and helpless, but this book was the one thing that made me feel like I could do something about it. I told myself that if just one person could read it and have their hearts or minds changed, then I would've done something meaningful against a problem that often feels so much bigger than myself. #Quote by Tomi Adeyemi
Problem quotes by Anne Lamott

Problem quotes by Alan W. Watts
#179. Certainly the revolutionary thinker must go beyond thought. He knows that almost all his best ideas come to him when thinking has stopped. He may have struggled and struggled to understand a problem in terms of old ways of thinking, only to find it impossible. But when thought stops from exhaustion, the mind is open to see the problem as it is - not as it is verbalized - and at once it is understood. #Quote by Alan W. Watts

People need to learn how to respond to each other's hatreds with love - which is what Jesus taught us, which is what Buddha came here to teach us, which is what Muhammad taught us, which is what all of the great spiritual masters who have ever walked among us who live at those highest energies taught us - responding to force with more force will just create more problems. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Problem quotes by Dick Cheney
#182. Obviously, it's a big problem how do we provide quality care to the maximum number of people. And it's not an easy problem to solve. #Quote by Dick Cheney
Problem quotes by David R. Loy
#183. Our problem today is that we no longer believe in things but in symbols, hence our life has passed over into these symbols and their manipulation - only to find ourselves manipulated by the symbols we take so seriously, objectified in our objectifications. #Quote by David R. Loy
Problem quotes by Rosabeth Moss Kanter
#184. The positive outlook that optimists project does not come from ignoring or denying problems. Optimists simply assume that problems are temporary and can be solved, so optimists naturally want more information about problems because then they can get to work and do something. Pessimists are more likely to believe that there is nothing they can do anyway, so what's the point of even thinking about it? #Quote by Rosabeth Moss Kanter
Problem quotes by Confucius
#185. He who cannot describe the problem will never find the solution to that problem. #Quote by Confucius
Problem quotes by Ryan Reynolds
#186. But if you do, then it's a high class problem to have. And if you do, you're the architect of that problem. There's no one else to blame but yourself. You've kept doing the same kinds of movies and that's what they want to see. #Quote by Ryan Reynolds
Problem quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#187. As the problems are new, we must disenthrall ourselves from the past. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Problem quotes by Warren W. Wiersbe
#188. Nothing paralyzes our lives like the attitude that things can never change. We need to remind ourselves that God can change things. Outlook determines outcome. If we see only the problems, we will be defeated; but if we see the possibilities in the problems, we can have victory. #Quote by Warren W. Wiersbe
Problem quotes by Richard Stallman
#189. If in my lifetime the problem of non-free software is solved, I could perhaps relax and write software again. But I might instead try to help deal with the world's larger problems. Standing up to an evil system is exhilarating, and now I have a taste for it. #Quote by Richard Stallman
Problem quotes by Jeaniene Frost
#190. MTV and video games have solved that problem as far as most of humanity goes. That, and telly, as it were."
"Telly?" Who was that?
He grunted in amusement. "Television, of course. Don't you speak English?"
"You sure don't," I muttered.
Shaking his head, he frowned at me. #Quote by Jeaniene Frost
Problem quotes by Miranda July
#191. After I had my son I looked everywhere for a book that might serve as some kind of mirror. I bought so many silly books. Now I see what the problem was: I wanted a book about time-about mortality. I can't think of a writer who is at once so experimentally daring and so rigorously uncompromising as Sarah Manguso. Ongoingness is an incredibly elegant, wise book, and I loved it. #Quote by Miranda July
Problem quotes by William J. Brennan
#192. It is difficult to understand precisely what the state hopes to achieve by promoting the creation and perpetuation of a subclass of illiterates within our boundaries, surely adding to the problems and costs of unemployment, welfare and crime. #Quote by William J. Brennan
Problem quotes by Stuart Firestein
#193. George Bernard Shaw, in a toast at a dinner feting Albert Einstein, proclaimed, "Science is always wrong. It never solves a problem without creating 10 more." Isn't that glorious? Science (and I think this applies to all kinds of research and scholarship) produces ignorance, possibly at a faster rate than it produces knowledge. Science, then, is not like the onion in the often used analogy of stripping away layer after layer to get at some core, central, fundamental truth. Rather it's like the magic well: no matter how #Quote by Stuart Firestein
Problem quotes by Praying Medic

Problem quotes by Jana Oliver
#195. Ah, that's your problem," Riley said, relieved to be on familiar ground. "You've got a copy of Paradise Lost
in your house. Biblios hate Milton. Same with Dante, C.S. Lewis and most holy books. They'll go after those every time. #Quote by Jana Oliver
Problem quotes by Bun B.
#196. Well I think the problem is, is that ... what people don't realize is they're gonna get away from the people that they're marketing with now. They're tryna change everything about the format of the NBA, the imaging and everything. This is more about control you know what I'm saying? This has nothing to do with clothing. This is a control issue. #Quote by Bun B.
Problem quotes by Garth Stein
#197. Terriers are problem solvers. They'll do what you tell them, but only if it happens to be in line with what they wanted to do anyway. #Quote by Garth Stein
Problem quotes by Virginia Satir

Problem quotes by Kofi Annan
#199. If you have a problem and you can't find a solution, you meet again tomorrow and you keep talking until you find a solution. You can disagree with behavior or a particular position, but you do not resort to calling an opponent worthless. #Quote by Kofi Annan
Problem quotes by David Anderson
#200. Actions are merely an indicator of a problem contained deeper in the heart and in the beliefs of a person. Individual racism cannot be changed through legislation but through personal transformation. #Quote by David Anderson
