Profession quotes by Jaci Burton

Profession quotes by Jon Hamm
#2. I got into acting because my teachers kept nudging me into it. The power a teacher has to influence someone is so great. I can't think of a profession I have more respect for. #Quote by Jon Hamm
Profession quotes by Henry Adams
#3. History will die if not irritated. The only service I can do to my profession is to serve as a flea. #Quote by Henry Adams
Profession quotes by Steven Pinker

Profession quotes by Rumi
#5. Any movement or sound is a profession of faith,
as the millstone grinding is explaining
how it believes in the river.
No metaphor can explain this,
but I cannot stop pointing to the beauty.

Every moment and place says,
Put this design in your carpet.

I want to be in such a passionate adoration
that my tent gets pitched against the sky.

Let the beloved come
and sit like a guard dog
in front of the tent.

When the ocean surges,
don't let me just hear it.
Let is splash inside my chest. #Quote by Rumi
Profession quotes by Stewart Stafford
#6. The coronavirus outbreak feels like an episode of The Twilight Zone. I went to see a doctor the other day, and they told me to wear a face mask. Then they said how much it would cost to see the doctor and I told them THEY were the ones who should be wearing masks! #Quote by Stewart Stafford
Profession quotes by Lydia Sigourney
#7. Admitting that it is the profession of our sex to teach, we perceive the mother to be first in point of precedence, in degree of power, in the faculty of teaching, and in the department allotted. For in point of precedence she is next to the Creator, in power over her pupil, limitless and without competitor. #Quote by Lydia Sigourney
Profession quotes by Joe Mantegna
#8. I think of being an actor as a blue-collar profession. #Quote by Joe Mantegna
Profession quotes by Virginia Woolf
#9. If people are highly successful in their profession they lose their senses. Sight goes. They have no time to look at pictures. Sound goes. They have no time to listen to music. Speech goes. They have no time for conversation. They lose their sense of proportion. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Profession quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#10. I hate the present modes of living and getting a living. Farming and shopkeeping and working at a trade or profession are all odious to me. I should relish getting my living in a simple, primitive fashion. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Profession quotes by Saad Salman
#11. Choosing the right career is the most difficult task for a person who is multi-talented and versatile. Because its hard to decide what field to go into, when you are good at too many things. #Quote by Saad Salman
Profession quotes by Stephen Fry
#12. Coming out as gay was an easy enough matter for me, since I worked in a profession where being gay had a long history of being accepted. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Profession quotes by Charles Lyell
#13. Never call an accountant a credit to his profession; a good accountant is a debit to his profession. #Quote by Charles Lyell
Profession quotes by Agatha Christie
#14. I am not mad. I am eccentric perhaps
at least certain people say so; but as regards my profession. I am very much as one says, 'all there. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Profession quotes by Thomas Hobbes
#15. So that in the nature of man,
we find three principal causes of quarrel:
First, Competition;
Secondly, Dissidence;
Thirdly, Glory.
The first, maketh men invade for Gain;
the second, for Safety;
and the third, for Reputation.
The first use Violence, to make themselves Masters of other men's persons, wives, children and cattle;
the second, to defend them;
the third, for trifles, as a word, a smile, a different opinion, and any other sign of undervalue, either direct in their Persons, or by reflexion in their Kindred, their Friends, their Nation, their Profession, or their Name. #Quote by Thomas Hobbes
Profession quotes by Gary Marx
#16. ...the best in any profession is first a teacher #Quote by Gary Marx
Profession quotes by Rebecca Traister
#17. In work, it is possible to find commitment, attachment, chemistry, and connection. In fact, it's high time that more people acknowledged the electric pull that women can feel for their profession, the exciting heat of ambition and frisson of success. #Quote by Rebecca Traister
Profession quotes by Anthony Trollope
#18. Is it not singular how some men continue to obtain the reputation of popular authorship without adding a word to the literature of their country worthy of note?? To puff and to get one's self puffed have become different branches of a new profession. #Quote by Anthony Trollope
Profession quotes by Jeff Goldblum
#19. In fact you can begin to discover and investigate whether you are an actor or not, whether you're in my view, qualified for a life in this profession or in this endeavor by checking yourself out and acting every day, getting plays and scripts and getting together with people and divvying up the parts and acting in one way or another, or writing things. #Quote by Jeff Goldblum
Profession quotes by William Howard Taft
#20. I'll be damned if I am not getting tired of this. It seems to be the profession of a President simply to hear other people talk. #Quote by William Howard Taft
Profession quotes by Susan B. Anthony
#21. Would you exalt your profession, exalt those who labor with you ... increase the salaries of the women engaged in the noble work of educating our future presidents, senators and congressmen. #Quote by Susan B. Anthony
Profession quotes by William Wilberforce
#22. Let true Christians then, with becoming earnestness, strive in all things to recommend their profession, and to put to silence the vain scoffs of ignorant objectors. Let them boldly assert the cause of Christ in an age when so many, who bear the name of Christians, are ashamed of Him: and let them consider as devolved on Them the important duty of suspending for a while the fall of their country, and, perhaps, of performing a still more extensive service to society at large; not by busy interference in politics, in which it cannot but be confessed there is much uncertainty; but rather by that sure and radical benefit of restoring the influence of Religion, and of raising the standard of morality. #Quote by William Wilberforce
Profession quotes by Carolyn G. Heilbrun
#23. Marriage, in short, is a bargain, like buying a house or entering a profession. One chooses it knowing that, by that very decision, one is abnegating other possibilities. In choosing companionship over passion, women like Beatrice Webb and Virginia Woolf made a bargain; their marriages worked because they did not regret their bargains, or blame their husbands for not being something else--dashing lovers, for example. But in writing biographies, or one's own life, it is both customary and misleading to present such marriages, to oneself or to one's reader, as sad compromises, the best of a bad bargain, or scarcely to speak of them at all. Virginia Woolf mentioned that she, who is reticent about nothing, had never spoken of her life with Leonard. but we know that she said of him that when he entered a room, she had no idea what he was going to say, a remarkable definition of a good marriage. Such marriages are not bad bargains, but the best of a good bargain, and we must learn the language to understand and describe them, particularly in writing the lives of accomplished women. #Quote by Carolyn G. Heilbrun
Profession quotes by Ronald Reagan
#24. Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Profession quotes by Viswanathan Anand
#25. For me, chess is not a profession, it is a way of life, a passion. People may feel that I have conquered the peak and will not have to struggle. Financially, perhaps that is true; but as far as chess goes, I'm still learning a lot! #Quote by Viswanathan Anand
Profession quotes by George Miller
#26. It is a pretty odd profession - tickling people - but it can be lucrative. #Quote by George Miller
Profession quotes by Jude Law
#27. I'm keen to do as little or as much reading and watching as the director may advise, and often off that you kind of stem into other things that you find of influence, perhaps the things that you're watching. It's a good excuse to get to know a new profession, or a new approach, or a new era. It's about authenticity. It's about having the confidence to really feel that you're saturated and know the world you're about to step into and understand the person you're about to be. #Quote by Jude Law
Profession quotes by Georges Bizet
#28. What a beautiful art, but what a wretched profession. #Quote by Georges Bizet
Profession quotes by Gillian St. Kevern
#29. I had thought of being a hermit, but she told me I was over-qualified and suggested instead a profession where I might enjoy the sound of my own voice. #Quote by Gillian St. Kevern
Profession quotes by Matthew Weiner
#30. My wife's an architect, so she definitely has a very high-risk artistic profession, and she gets the idea that you're really sensitive, you really care what people think, you have a low threshold for criticism. #Quote by Matthew Weiner
Profession quotes by Katrina Kaif
#31. I was always interested in fabric, clothes and designing. Maybe I would have been a designer by profession if I didn't start acting. #Quote by Katrina Kaif
Profession quotes by Astley Cooper
#32. Nothing is known in our profession by guess; and I do not believe, that from the first dawn of medical science to the present moment, a single correct idea has ever emanated from conjecture: it is right therefore, that those who are studying their profession should be aware that there is no short road to knowledge; and that observation on the diseased living, examination of the dead, and experiments upon living animals, are the only sources of true knowledge; and that inductions from these are the sole bases of legitimate theory. #Quote by Astley Cooper
Profession quotes by Marjan Kamali
#33. Is he kind?" Darya asked. "Because, Mina, there's a lot to be said for education. And a profession. And family history. And, well, looks. But if there's one thing that matters, it's character. That's the only thing that lasts. Degrees can lose significance, jobs can be lost, a family's past really shouldn't define a person, and as for looks . . ." Darya sighed. "Well, looks fade for the best of us. But character, Mina, is what lasts. Kindness will carry you through the ups and downs of life. #Quote by Marjan Kamali
Profession quotes by Thomas L. Friedman
#34. No matter what your profession – doctor, lawyer, architect, accountant – if you are an American, you better be good at the touchy-feely service stuff, because anything that can be digitized can be outsourced to either the smartest or the cheapest producer. #Quote by Thomas L. Friedman
Profession quotes by P.D. Ouspensky
#35. In existing criminology there are concepts: a criminal man, a criminal profession, a criminal society, a criminal sect, and a criminal tribe; but there is no concept of a criminal state, or a criminal government, or criminal legislation. Consequently, the biggest crimes actually escape being called crimes. #Quote by P.D. Ouspensky
Profession quotes by Dani Rodrik
#36. Because economists go through a similar training and share a common method of analysis, they act very much like a guild. The models themselves may be the product of analysis, reflection, and observation, but practitioners' views about the real world develop much more heuristically, as a by-product of informal conversations and socialization among themselves. This kind of echo chamber easily produces overconfidence - in the received wisdom or the model of the day. Meanwhile, the guild mentality renders the profession insular and immune to outside criticism. The models may have problems, but only card-carrying members of the profession are allowed to say so. The objections of outsiders are discounted because they do not understand the models. The profession values smarts over judgment, being interesting over being right - so its fads and fashions do not always self-correct. #Quote by Dani Rodrik
Profession quotes by Moliere
#37. A shoemaker, in making a pair of shoes, cannot spoil a scrap of leather without having to bear the loss; but in our business we may spoil a man without its costing us a farthing. The blunders are never put down to us, and it is always the fault of the fellow who dies. The best of this profession is, that there is the greatest honesty and discretion among the dead; for you never find them complain of the physician who has killed them. #Quote by Moliere
Profession quotes by Katherine Soh
#38. In its basic form, nursing can be seen as a duty, but beyond the incessant operational activities that lay the foundation of our daily work, the profession is all about grace. Helping people is a noble calling. It is a privilege to serve my fellow human beings. Fifteen years has seen many ups and downs at the workplace, but I have enjoyed serving the many patients who come into my care, and have prayed for the souls of those who were on the brink of death. #Quote by Katherine Soh
Profession quotes by Colin Dexter
#39. It is strange to relate (for a man in his profession) that in addition to incurable acrophobia, arachnophobia, myophobia, and ornithophobia, Morse also suffered from necrophobia; and had he known what awaited him now, it is doubtful whether he would have dared to view the horridly disfigured corpse at all. #Quote by Colin Dexter
Profession quotes by Van Morrison
#40. I don't feel comfortable doing interviews. My profession is music, and writing songs. That's what I do. I like to do it, but I hate to talk about it. #Quote by Van Morrison
Profession quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#41. The misery that oppresses you lies not in your profession but in yourself! What man in the world would not find his situation intolerable if he chooses a craft, an art, indeed any form of life, without experiencing an inner calling? Whoever is born with a talent, or to a talent, must surely find in that the most pleasing of occupations! Everything on this earth has its difficult sides! Only some inner drive - pleasure, love - can help us overcome obstacles, prepare a path, and lift us out of the narrow circle in which others tread out their anguished, miserable existences! #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Profession quotes by James Herriot
#42. There has always been a 'and this is where I come in' feeling about a night call. And as my lights swept the cobbles of the deserted market place it was there again, a sense of returning to fundamentals, of really being me. #Quote by James Herriot
Profession quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#43. There are no crimes and no criminals in these days. What is the use of having brains in our profession? I know well that I have it in me to make my name famous. No man lives or has ever lived who has brought the same amount of study and of natural talent to the detection of crime which I have done. And what is the result? There is no crime to detect, or, at most, some bungling villainy with a motive so transparent that even a Scotland Yard official can see through it. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Profession quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte
#44. Mankind are in the end always governed by superiority of intellectual faculties, and none are more sensible of this than the military profession. When, on my return from Italy, I assumed the dress of the Institute, and associated with men of science, I knew what I was doing: I was sure of not being misunderstood by the lowest drummer boy in the army. #Quote by Napoleon Bonaparte
Profession quotes by Lynsey Addario
#45. If I took a month off, I was likely to be replaced by one of the other, say, two hundred freelancers vying to get my assignments. If I took six months off to have a baby, I believed I would be written off by my editors. I was in a man's profession. #Quote by Lynsey Addario
Profession quotes by Owen   Johnson
#46. Brockhurst, the champion of individualism, was soon launched on his favorite topic.

"The great fault of the American nation, which is the fault of republics, is the reduction of everything to the average. Our universities are simply the expression of the forces that are operating outside. We are business colleges purely and simply, because we as a nation have only one ideal - the business ideal."

"That's a big statement," said Regan.

"It's true. Twenty years ago we had the ideal of the lawyer, of the doctor, of the statesman, of the gentleman, of the man of letters, of the soldier. Now the lawyer is simply a supernumerary enlisting under any banner for pay; the doctor is overshadowed by the specialist with his business development of the possibilities of the rich; we have politicians, and politics are deemed impossible for a gentleman; the gentleman cultured, simple, hospitable, and kind, is of the dying generation; the soldier is simply on parade."

"Wow!" said Ricketts, jingling his chips. "They're off."

"Everything has conformed to business, everything has been made to pay. Art is now a respectable career - to whom? To the business man. Why? Because a profession that is paid $3,000 to $5,000 a portrait is no longer an art, but a blamed good business. The man who cooks up his novel according to the weakness of his public sells a hundred thousand copies. Dime novel? No; published by our most conservative publishers - one #Quote by Owen Johnson
Profession quotes by Robin Hoyle
#47. There is a distressing tendency of the L&D profession to latch on to half read and barely understood concepts. #Quote by Robin Hoyle
Profession quotes by Fiona Mozley
#48. But I don't have any real interest in anything, you know. I don't really care about anything. Not about the sea or the outdoors or nature or anything. I don't really have any hobbies. My mother and grandmother used to sew things.' She picked up one of the embroidered cushions. 'But it doesn't interest me. I do things for a bit and then get bored. Like painting or writing. It interested me for a while but I gave up.
I think about swimming but I don't swim,' she said. 'I imagine what it would be like to be in the water, especially the sea. I imagine what it would be like to dip my body into the freezing salt water and how it would feel to be fully submerged and then come up for air but I never do it. I don't go to the beach and I don't get into the water. Sometimes I think I could have been an actor. It's the one profession I've never tried. In one way or another, I have spent my whole life impersonating other people. Acting out fantasies with personalities that I've made up in my head. Brave people that go about the world and do things. But it's not like it's the achievements that matter to me, it's the interest. The interest the people I play take in the world around them. I suppose they love it in a way that I don't. They're fanatics. #Quote by Fiona Mozley
Profession quotes by Charles Lamb
#49. Rags, which are the reproach of poverty, are the beggar's robes, and graceful insignia of his profession, his tenure, his full dress, the suit in which he is expected to show himself in public. #Quote by Charles Lamb
Profession quotes by Nancy Giles
#50. What must it be like to live in Rush Limbaughs world? A world where when anyone other than conservative, white men attempts to do anything or enter any profession, be it business, politics, art or sports, the only reason theyre allowed entry or, incredibly, attain excellence is because the standard was lowered. Be they liberals, people of color, women, the poor or anyone with an accent ... Edgy, controversial, brilliant. What a way to shake up intelligent sports commentary. Hitler would have killed in talk radio. He was edgy, too. #Quote by Nancy Giles
Profession quotes by Jack McMahon
#51. Here's a six-foot-ten guy in sneakers and the lady's asking me, 'Profession?' #Quote by Jack McMahon
Profession quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#52. Sometimes I don't consider myself very good at life, so I hide in my profession. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Profession quotes by Colin A. Ross
#53. The Study proves that such experiments resulted in serious damage to study subjects and their children. Finally, the Tuskeegee Syphilis Study proves that considerable external pressure is often required before the medical profession takes the necessary action to terminate such experimentation. #Quote by Colin A. Ross
Profession quotes by Joyce Rachelle
#54. Not everything you're good at is what you're called to do. #Quote by Joyce Rachelle
Profession quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#55. However, not only are fortunes equal in America, equality extends to some degree to intelligence itself. I do not think that there is a single country in the world where, in proportion to the population, there are so few ignorant and, at the same time, so few educated individuals as in America. Primary education is available to all; secondary is within reach of no one, which can be explained quite easily as the inevitable result, so to speak, of my argument above. Almost all Americans enjoy a life of comfort and can, therefore, obtain the first elements of human knowledge. In America there are few rich people; therefore, all Americans have to learn the skills of a profession which demands a period of apprenticeship. Thus America can devote to general learning only the early years of life. At fifteen, they begin a career; their education ends most often when ours begins. If education is pursued beyond that point, it is directed only towards specialist subjects with a profitable return in mind. Science is studied as if it were a job and only those branches are taken up which have a recognized and immediate usefulness. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Profession quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#56. The boatmen appeared to lead an easy and contented life, and we thought that we should prefer their employment ourselves to many professions which are much more sought after. They suggested how few circumstances are necessary to the well-being and serenity of man, how indifferent all employments are, and that any may seem noble and poetic to the eyes of men, if pursued with sufficient buoyancy and freedom. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Profession quotes by Henry Cloud
#57. It is extremely important to be able to make negative assertions. We must be able to say what is 'not me' in order to have a 'me'. What we like has no meaning unless we know what we don't like. Our yes has no meaning if we never say no. My chosen profession has no passion if 'just anyone would do'. Our opinions and thoughts mean very little if there is nothing we disagree with. #Quote by Henry Cloud
Profession quotes by Louella Parsons
#58. Almost anyone who has ever attained any kind of public stature in his or her profession can expect sometimes to see a reflection in a cracked mirror. #Quote by Louella Parsons
Profession quotes by Jim Lovell
#59. I didn't go into the NASA program to pick up rocks or to go the moon or anything else. I went in there because I was a military officer, and that was the next notch in my profession. #Quote by Jim Lovell
Profession quotes by Tom Lehrer
#60. I always like to make explicit the fact that before I went off not too long ago to fight in the trenches, I was a mathematician by profession. I don't like people to get the idea that I have to do this for a living. I mean, it isn't as though I had to do this, you know, I could be making, oh, three thousand dollars a year just teaching. #Quote by Tom Lehrer
Profession quotes by Charles Jencks
#61. A placebo is a phony cure that works. This is very hard for the medical profession to get their teeth around because they hate placebos, but scientifically, placebos work in about 30% of cases that are psychogenic diseases. #Quote by Charles Jencks
Profession quotes by T. Allen Lawson
#62. It benefits all artists to help one another - it raises the whole profession. #Quote by T. Allen Lawson
Profession quotes by Alexander Borodin
#63. As a composer seeking to remain anonymous I am shy of confessing my musical activity. This is intelligible enough. For others it is their chief business, the occupation and aim of life. For me it is a relaxation, a pastime which distracts me from my principal business, my professorship. I love my profession and my science. I love the Academy and my pupils, male and female, because to direct the work of young people, one must be close to them. #Quote by Alexander Borodin
Profession quotes by Bela Lugosi
#64. In Hungary acting is a profession. In America it is a decision. #Quote by Bela Lugosi
Profession quotes by Ali Wong
#65. A reporter once asked me why I think progressive men who earn significantly less than their breadwinning wives still won't quit their jobs to take care of their children. Why do they still hold on to their careers, even if taking care of the children would make more financial sense because the cost of childcare is higher than their net salary?
I think I know the answer to that now, and it sucks. Women are not expected to live a life for themselves. When women dedicate their lives to children, it is deemed a worthy and respectable choice. When women dedicate themselves to a passion outside of the family that doesn't involve worshiping their husbands or taking care of their kids, they're seen as selfish, cold, or unfit mothers. But when a man spends hours grueling over a craft, profession, or project, he's admired and seen as a genius. And when a man finds a woman who worships him, who dedicates her life to serving him, he's lucky. But when a man dedicates himself to taking care of his children it's seen as a last resort. That it must be because he ran out of other options. That it's plan Z. That it's an indicator of his inability to provide for his family. Basically, that he's a fucking loser. I think it's one of the most important falsehoods we need to shatter when talking about women's rights. #Quote by Ali Wong
Profession quotes by Henrique M. Simoes
#66. An average trader loses money, so in this profession, you need to be way above average to make consistent money trading the markets. #Quote by Henrique M. Simoes
Profession quotes by Sonia Sotomayor
#67. To me, lawyering is the height of service - and being involved in this profession is a gift. #Quote by Sonia Sotomayor
Profession quotes by C.S. Lewis
#68. The quest of the Inner Ring will break your hearts unless you break it. But if you break it, a surprising result will follow. If in your working hours you make the work your end, you will presently find yourself all unawares inside the only circle in your profession that really matters. You will be one of the sound craftsmen, and other sound craftsmen will know it. This group of craftsmen will by no means coincide with the Inner Ring or the Important People or the People in the Know. It will not shape that professional policy or work up that professional influence which fights for the profession as a whole against the public: nor will it lead to those periodic scandals and crises which the Inner Ring produces. But it will do those things which that profession exists to do and will in the long run be responsible for all the respect which that profession in fact enjoys and which the speeches and advertisements cannot maintain. And if in your spare time you consort simply with the people you like, you will again find that you have come unawares to a real inside: that you are indeed snug and safe at the center of something which, seen from without, would look exactly like an Inner Ring. But the difference is that its secrecy is accidental, and its exclusiveness a by-product, and no one was led thither by the lure of the esoteric: for it is only four or five people who like one another meeting to do things that they like. This is friendship. Aristotle placed it among the virtues. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Profession quotes by John Wooden
#69. I think the teaching profession contributes more to the future of our society than any other single profession. #Quote by John Wooden
Profession quotes by Anne Sweeney
#70. Too many times, adults walk into situations, and people have already put them in a box: 'Oh, you write comedy.' Or, 'You're the development woman.' And it's not just our profession. It's hard to look at someone and say, 'What else is inside?' #Quote by Anne Sweeney
Profession quotes by Kareena Kapoor Khan
#71. My thinking is lot more different with many actresses in the industry. I don't understand why people in showbiz put their profession of acting in the back seat after marriage. #Quote by Kareena Kapoor Khan
Profession quotes by David Quammen
#72. The next day, William Lanney's much abused remains were carried in a coffin to the cemetery. The crowd of mourners was large. It included many of Lanney's shipmates, suggesting that the whaling profession in late-nineteenth-century Hobart was graced with a higher level of humanistic sensibility than the surgical profession. #Quote by David Quammen
Profession quotes by Ronald Reagan
#73. It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Profession quotes by William Ruckelshaus
#74. Women's rights in essence is really a movement for freedom, a movement for equality, for the dignity of all women, for those who work outside the home and those who dedicate themselves with more altruism than any profession I know to being wives and mothers, cooks and chauffeurs, and child psychologists and loving human beings. #Quote by William Ruckelshaus
Profession quotes by Barbara Ehrenreich
#75. Whether you work outside the home or not, never tell them [your children] that being a mommy is your 'job.' Being a mommy is a relationship, not a profession. #Quote by Barbara Ehrenreich
Profession quotes by Russell Crowe
#76. Reality is, I'm an actor and an entertainer, and I really wouldn't know what to do with another profession. #Quote by Russell Crowe
Profession quotes by Janet Fitch
#77. As a middle-aged woman who has had some luck as a writer, I'd like this profession of author to remain a possibility for young writers in the future - and not become an arena solely for the hobbyist or the well-heeled. #Quote by Janet Fitch
Profession quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#78. The medical profession (is) a conspiracy to hide its own shortcomings. No doubt the same may be said of all professions. They are all conspiracies against the laity ... (U)ntil there is a practicable alternative to blind trust in the doctor, the truth about the doctor is so terrible that we dare not face it. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Profession quotes by Eddie Redmayne
#79. It can be a miserable profession, acting, because you always want what you can't have. #Quote by Eddie Redmayne
Profession quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#80. With regard to the learned professions, little need be observed; they truly form no distinct interest in society ... [discussing the landed, merchant, and learned classes in legislative assembly]. Will not the man of the learned profession, who will feel a neutrality to the rivalships between the different branches of industry, be likely to prove an impartial arbiter between them, ready to promote either, so far as it shall appear to him conducive to the general interests of society? #Quote by Alexander Hamilton
Profession quotes by A.D. Starrling
#81. This is the only profession in which another human being can crap, pee and puke on you and you still think they're cute. #Quote by A.D. Starrling
Profession quotes by Kevin D. Williamson
#82. It would be difficult to find in the United States any profession so dedicated to socialism as that of educators, and difficult to find any argument for socialism as popular as the cause of public education. #Quote by Kevin D. Williamson
Profession quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#83. I don't understand these people anymore, that travel the commuter-trains to their dormitory towns. These people that call themselves human, but, by a pressure they do not feel, are forced to do their work like ants. With what do they fill their time when they are free of work on their silly little Sundays? I am very fortunate in my profession. I feel like a farmer, with the airstrips as my fields. Those that have once tasted this kind of fare will not forget it ever. Not so, my friends? #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Profession quotes by Clive Davis
#84. I feel blessed that I found not just a profession, but a 24/7 way of life that I purely love. That curiosity to be current, to listen to the Hozier album, to be early in recognition of a Lorde and spending time with her and Miguel, the pleasure of seeing new talent erupt ... I love it. #Quote by Clive Davis
Profession quotes by C.S. Lewis
#85. For us of course the shared activity and therefore the companionship on which Friendship supervenes will not often be a bodily one like hunting or fighting. It may be a common religion, common studies, a common profession, even a common recreation. All who share it will be our companions; but one or two or three who share something more will be our Friends. In this kind of love, as Emerson said, Do you love me? means Do you see the same truth? - Or at least, "Do you care about the same truth?" The man who agrees with us that some question, little regarded by others, is of great importance can be our Friend. He need not agree with us about the answer. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Profession quotes by Denzel Washington
#86. I'm not a big Hollywood star. I'm an actor. I'm called a star. That's not what I am. First of all I'm a human being; my profession is acting. People give you titles. They say you're an up and coming star, then they say you're a star, then they say you're a washed-up star. So I don't get caught up in what I'm called. My job, my profession, is acting. #Quote by Denzel Washington
Profession quotes by Seth Godin
#87. Perhaps marketing is about to transition to a new kind of profession, one that requires insight, dedication and smarts. #Quote by Seth Godin
Profession quotes by Elizabeth M. Norman
#88. Teaching and office work held little appeal - the former meant taking care of someone else's children, the latter someone else's man - so they entered the only other profession open to them, nursing. After #Quote by Elizabeth M. Norman
Profession quotes by Sebastian Coe
#89. The characteristic shared by people at the top of their profession is that, to get better, they crave criticism. Most people don't like criticism, but if you are trying to shave two tenths of a second at 800 metres, that is what you crave. #Quote by Sebastian Coe
Profession quotes by Marjane Satrapi
#90. I had so many professions before. I didn't want to do this particularly. It just happened. #Quote by Marjane Satrapi
Profession quotes by Colin Firth
#91. My parents and grandparents have always been engaged in teaching or the medical profession or the priesthood, so I've sort of grown up with a sense of complicity in the lives of other people, so there's no virtue in that; it's the way one is raised. #Quote by Colin Firth
Profession quotes by Marie Dressler
#92. There are very few persons who would think of inquiring into the private life of the newspaper dealer at the corner, or the druggist, or the doctor, or even a Mah Jong partner, but the moment one belongs to the theatrical profession, the public usually feels cheated unless it knows one's inmost thoughts of love. #Quote by Marie Dressler
Profession quotes by Edna Ferber
#93. She faced him, sitting up very straight in bed, the little wool shawl hunched about her shoulders. "Dirk, are you ever going back to architecture? The war is history, it's now or never with you. Pretty soon it will be too late. Are you ever going back to architecture? To your profession?

A clean amputation. "No, Mother."

She gave an actual gasp, as though icy water had been thrown full in her face. She looked suddenly old, tired. Her shoulders sagged. He stood in the doorway, braced for her reproaches. But when she spoke it was to reproach herself. "Then I'm a failure."

"Oh, what nonsense, Mother. I'm happy. You can't live somebody else's life. You used to tell me, when I was a kid I remember, that life wasn't just an adventure, to be taken as it came, with the hope that something glorious was hidden just around the corner. You said you had lived that way and it hadn't worked. You said - - "

She interrupted him with a little cry. "I know I did. I know I did." Suddenly she raised a warning finger. Her eyes were luminous, prophetic. "Dirk, you can't desert her like that!"

"Desert who?" He was startled.

"Beauty! Self-expression. Whatever you want to call it. You wait! She'll turn on you some day. Some day you'll want her, and she won't be there. #Quote by Edna Ferber
Profession quotes by Maxine Powell
#94. All a singer needs is voice and expression anything else you have is an asset to your profession. #Quote by Maxine Powell
Profession quotes by Robert Harris
#95. The trouble with Lucious," he said, putting his feet up on the desk after this cousin has gone," is that he thinks politics is a fight for justice. Politics is a profession. #Quote by Robert Harris
Profession quotes by Mao Zedong
#96. There are some militarists who say: 'We are not interested in politics but only in the profession of arms.' It is vital that these simple-minded militarists be made to realize the relationship that exists between politics and military affairs. Military action is a method used to attain a political goal. While military affairs and political affairs are not identical, it is impossible to isolate one from the other." - Mao Zedong, Yu Chi Chan #Quote by Mao Zedong
Profession quotes by Timothy Keller
#97. Just because you cannot realize your highest aspirations in work does not mean you have chosen wrongly, or are not called to your profession, or that you should spend your life looking for the perfect career that is devoid of frustration ... You should expect to be regularly frustrated in your work even though you may be in exactly the right vocation. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Profession quotes by Frank Gehry
#98. Architecture has always been a very idealistic profession. It's about making the world a better place, and it works over the generations because people go on vacation and they look for it. #Quote by Frank Gehry
Profession quotes by Meryl Streep
#99. The best thing about acting is when you're playing a scene and you actually become your character and lose yourself in that moment. That's when you know you've been succeeded at what you've worked very hard to accomplish in your profession. Those are the truly thrilling moments. #Quote by Meryl Streep
Profession quotes by Elizabeth Inchbald
#100. I assure you my professions never go beyond my intentions ... #Quote by Elizabeth Inchbald
Profession quotes by George Orwell
#101. In practice nobody cares whether work is useful or useless, productive or parasitic; the sole thing demanded is that it shall be profitable. In all the modem talk about energy, efficiency, social service and the rest of it, what meaning is there except 'Get money, get it legally, and get a lot of it'? Money has become the grand test of virtue. By this test beggars fail, and for this they are despised. If one could earn even ten pounds a week at begging, it would become a respectable profession immediately. #Quote by George Orwell
Profession quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#102. A traveller is to be reverenced as such. His profession is the best symbol of our life. Going from - toward; it is the history of every one of us. It is a great art to saunter. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Profession quotes by J.G. Ballard
#103. I guessed that he was one of those ambitious young physicians who more and more fill the profession, opportunists with a fashionable hoodlum image, openly hostile to their patients. My brief stay at the hospital had already convinced me that the medical profession was an open door to anyone nursing a grudge against the human race. #Quote by J.G. Ballard
Profession quotes by Robertson Davies
#104. Men have this climacteric, you know, like women. Doctors deny it, but I have met some very menopausal persons in their profession. #Quote by Robertson Davies
Profession quotes by John Ortberg
#105. Despite the rise of the mental health profession, people are becoming increasingly vulnerable to depression. Why? Martin Seligman, a brilliant psychologist with no religious ax to grind, has a theory that it's because we have replaced church, faith, and community with a tiny little unit that cannot bear the weight of meaning. That's the self. We're all about the self. We revolve our lives around ourselves. #Quote by John Ortberg
Profession quotes by David Halberstam
#106. When you are discussing a successful coach," sports psychologist Bruce Ogilvie once said, not of Ramsay but of the entire profession, "you are not necessarily drawing the profile of an entirely healthy person. #Quote by David Halberstam
Profession quotes by Ernest L. Boyer
#107. When all is said and done we simply must make teaching in this country an honorable profession-since it's in the classrooms of America where the battle for excellence, ultimately, will be won or lost. #Quote by Ernest L. Boyer
Profession quotes by Nicola Sturgeon
#108. Politics is a very male-dominated, male-driven profession. I was not just a woman but a young woman, and I suppose you end up trying to behave in a way that you think is expected of you. #Quote by Nicola Sturgeon
Profession quotes by Lou Doillon
#109. 'Blanche' opened a new door for me without really making me more famous. 'Blanche' was a risk, but that is the only thing that excites me in this profession. The knowledge that I am an actress who takes risks lifts my soul. #Quote by Lou Doillon
Profession quotes by Albert Camus
#110. My profession lent itself nicely to my vocation for heights. It freed me of any bitterness towards my fellow men, who were alwaysin my debt, without my owing them anything. It placed me above the judge whom, I in turn judged, above the defendant whom I forced into gratitude. #Quote by Albert Camus
Profession quotes by Antonio Villaraigosa
#111. There are teachers' unions around the country realizing they want to improve standards of the profession, improve the quality of their profession, and ultimately attract the best and the brightest to their profession. The vast majority of teachers are dedicated and committed. #Quote by Antonio Villaraigosa
Profession quotes by Phyllis Logan
#112. Because I came from a small town outside Glasgow, nobody from my school had ever gone into the acting profession. It was just something you didn't do. You joined the bank or became a teacher or whatever you did. #Quote by Phyllis Logan
Profession quotes by Agatha Christie
#113. There was a moment when I changed from an amateur to a professional. I assumed the burden of a profession, which is to write even when you don't want to, don't much like what you're writing, and aren't writing particularly well. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Profession quotes by Nawal El Saadawi
#114. Yet not for a single moment did I have any doubts about my own integrity and honour as a woman. I knew that my profession had been invented by men, and that men were in control of both our worlds, the one on earth, and the one in heaven. That men force women to sell their bodies at a price, and that the lowest paid body is that of a wife. All women are prostitutes of one kind or another. #Quote by Nawal El Saadawi
Profession quotes by Jared Taylor
#115. Now If diversity were inherently good, inherently valuable, inherently wonderful, why would we have to have the highly-paid profession know as 'diversity consultant' to manage it? Things that are inherently good, to enjoy them, or to make the most of them, you don't need a consultant. You don't need a consultant to make the most out of good-tasting food, beautiful weather, the affection of your friends. Those are inherently good things. Diversity required consultants because diversity is hard. Diversity is difficult. It's because it's difficult for people to try to work, to act, and live together with people who are unlike themselves. #Quote by Jared Taylor
Profession quotes by Roy Osherove
#116. If you are too lazy to cleanup your database after testing, your filesystem after testing or your memory based system consider moving to a different profession. This isn't a job for you. #Quote by Roy Osherove
Profession quotes by Lauren Blakely
#117. Lover of love. I adore love letters, and professions of love, and true, heartfelt moments when two people know they're meant for each other. #Quote by Lauren Blakely
Profession quotes by Neal Shusterman
#118. Therin lies the paradox of the profession,' Faraday said. 'Those who wish to have the job should not have it...and those who would most refuse to kill are the only ones who should. #Quote by Neal Shusterman
Profession quotes by Amit Kalantri
#119. His music gave no lesser joy than a vacation. Creativity in his music and its success stood out as an example to all kinds of artists, in the lectures of business speakers, engineers, and to anyone who built or constructed something in their respective profession. #Quote by Amit Kalantri
Profession quotes by Sonia Sotomayor
#120. What's quote-unquote a 'good' lawyer, doctor, or whatever the profession is. And if you're a male who grew up professionally in a male-dominated profession, then your image of what a good lawyer is a male image. #Quote by Sonia Sotomayor
Profession quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#121. Also, it's good to have more than one profession, in case your own profession goes out of style. A Wall Street trader who's also a belly dancer will do a lot better than a trader who winds up driving a taxi. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Profession quotes by Susan B. Anthony
#122. Gentlemen ... Do you not see that so long as society says a woman is incompetent to be a lawyer, minister or doctor, but has ample ability to be a teacher, that every man of you who chooses this profession tacitly acknowledges that he has no more brains than a woman? #Quote by Susan B. Anthony
Profession quotes by Benjamin Disraeli
#123. You have despoiled churches. You have threatened every corporation and endowment in the country. You have examined into everybodys affairs. You have criticised every profession and vexed every trade. No one is certain of his property, and nobody knows what duties he may have to perform to-morrow. This is the policy of confiscation as compared with that of concurrent endowment. #Quote by Benjamin Disraeli
Profession quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#124. Taking all the round of professions and occupations, you will find that every man is the worse for being poor; and the doctor is a specially dangerous man when poor. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Profession quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith
#125. If anything is evident about people who manage money, it is that the task attracts a very low level of talent, one that is protected in its highly imperfect profession by the mystery that is thought to enfold the subject of economics in general and of money in particular. #Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith
Profession quotes by Edith Stein
#126. Each woman who lives in the light of eternity can fulfill her vocation, no matter if it is in marriage, in a religious order, or in a worldly profession. #Quote by Edith Stein
Profession quotes by Marc Bloch
#127. The ABC of our profession is to avoid these large abstract terms in order to try to discover behind them the only concrete realities, which are human beings. #Quote by Marc Bloch
Profession quotes by Bette Midler
#128. I hope to keep entertaining in some way until I can't physically entertain any longer. It's what I was born to do, and I love this profession. #Quote by Bette Midler
Profession quotes by Seth
#129. I'm over here in my unit, isolated and alone, eating my terrible tasting food, and I have to look over at that. That looks like the most fun I've ever seen in my entire life, and it's B.S. - excuse my language. I'm just saying that I wash and dry; I'm like a single mother. Look, we all know home-ec is a joke - no offense - it's just that everyone takes this class to get an A, and it's bullshit - and I'm sorry. I'm not putting down your profession, but it's just the way I feel. I don't want to sit here, all by myself, cooking this shitty food - no offense - and I just think that I don't need to cook tiramisu. When am I gonna need to cook tiramisu? Am I going to be a chef? No. There's three weeks left of school, give me a fuckin' break! I'm sorry for cursing. #Quote by Seth
Profession quotes by Ellen Goodman
#130. Who's counting? It was, of course, the minority who were counting. It always is. Most of the women I know today would dearly like to use their fingers and toes for some activity more enthralling than counting. They have been counting for so long. But the peculiar problem of the new math is that every time we stop adding, somebody starts subtracting. At the very least (the advanced students will understand this) the rate of increase slows ... The minority members of any group or profession have two answers: They can keep score or they can lose. #Quote by Ellen Goodman
Profession quotes by Joan Allen
#131. Almost any film that you do is an opportunity to open you up and make you more aware of an area that you might not be thinking about. That's what is kind of cool, or one of the cool things about this profession. #Quote by Joan Allen
Profession quotes by Vineet Aggarwal
#132. Don't let your profession keep you from pursuing your passion! #Quote by Vineet Aggarwal
Profession quotes by William Osler
#133. The higher the standard of education in a profession, the less marked will be the charlatanism. #Quote by William Osler
Profession quotes by W. H. Auden
#134. Murder is commoner among cooks than among members of any other profession. #Quote by W. H. Auden
Profession quotes by Atul Gawande
#135. Equally worrying, and far less recognized, medicine has been slow to confront the very changes that it has been responsible for - or to apply the knowledge we have about how to make old age better. Although the elderly population is growing rapidly, the number of certified geriatricians the medical profession has put in practice has actually fallen in the United States by 25 percent between 1996 and 2010. Applications to training programs in adult primary care medicine have plummeted, while fields like plastic surgery and radiology receive applications in record numbers. Partly, this has to do with money - incomes in geriatrics and adult primary care are among the lowest in medicine. And partly, whether we admit it or not, a lot of doctors don't like taking care of the elderly. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Profession quotes by Satish Kumar
#136. You have no skills in your hands. You have no education of understanding the meaning and the purpose and the compassion and the relationship. You have just a profession. #Quote by Satish Kumar

#137. Espionage is the world's second oldest profession. #Quote by Vejas Gabriel Liulevicius
Profession quotes by Kevin Spacey
#138. Our job, you know, in the entertainment profession is to try to illuminate and show people all sides of humanity, and it doesn't just mean that you can only do movies that are only about the good parts of us. You have to be able to eliminate the bad parts. #Quote by Kevin Spacey
Profession quotes by Rick Joyner
#139. The Great Commission to go into all the world is not only geographical, but must include every field, profession, discipline, sport, etc. #Quote by Rick Joyner
Profession quotes by Benjamin Carson
#140. Occasionally I talk with people who see doctors as people who do nothing but give of themselves and never receive from anyone else - especially not from their patients. That is totally
false. The longer I remain in my profession, the more I realize how much I receive from those who come to me for help. #Quote by Benjamin Carson
Profession quotes by Cyril Cusack
#141. Acting is the most brotherly and sisterly profession in the world. #Quote by Cyril Cusack
Profession quotes by Malaika Arora Khan
#142. Everybody goes through a phase of fatigue, and I am no different. Re-inventing yourself in your profession is the key to deal with fatigue. #Quote by Malaika Arora Khan
Profession quotes by Taylor Mali
#143. Certainly teachers themselves can do a better job of letting the world know how hard their profession is, but frankly, they have real work to do and a lot of it, so they don't have a whole lot of free time on their hands. #Quote by Taylor Mali
Profession quotes by Timur Bekmambetov
#144. Every commercial covers different ground, different ideas, and it's my profession to direct and to tell stories - for me, it's very organic. #Quote by Timur Bekmambetov
Profession quotes by Kevin Ayers
#145. The thing about 'Soft Machine' and me was that I never considered another profession. #Quote by Kevin Ayers
Profession quotes by John Locke
#146. Why, then, does this burning zeal for God, for the Church, and for the salvation of souls - burning I say, literally, with fire and faggot - pass by those moral vices and wickednesses, without any chastisement, which are acknowledged by all men to be diametrically opposite to the profession of Christianity, and bend all its nerves either to the introducing of ceremonies, or to the establishment of opinions, which for the most part are about nice and intricate matters, that exceed the capacity of ordinary understandings? #Quote by John Locke
Profession quotes by Sarah Silverman
#147. Take lots of time for yourself, discovering yourself-pursue not only a profession but other life passions, I always make time to rock climb or hike or write a few short stories. Also, find good people and surround yourself with them. Most importantly, always believe you will, unequivocally. #Quote by Sarah Silverman
Profession quotes by Don Alias
#148. Mom did not want me to have anything to do with playing music. Being from a middle-class Black family in that particular era, everybody wanted you to have a profession
a doctor, a lawyer, and so forth. So she sent me to school to study medicine. #Quote by Don Alias
Profession quotes by Lionel Barber
#149. We have Trumpist (ph) tendencies in Europe. Look up Marine Le Pen in France. Look at the Five Star Movement headed by a clown by profession, Beppe Grillo, in Italy. #Quote by Lionel Barber
Profession quotes by Edie McClurg
#150. Acting isn't a singular profession, it is a collaborate profession. #Quote by Edie McClurg
Profession quotes by Eve Hewson
#151. The origin of nursing started out with prostitutes, who would go care for people in jail. That was back when nobody wanted to go to the hospital because it was basically a place that you went to die. It started progressing with the visiting nurses in the South. The women started wearing these outfits to make it look like they were more sophisticated and so that they could be more respected. They started recruiting women from good education backgrounds because they wanted to make it a more respected profession. #Quote by Eve Hewson
Profession quotes by Brian South
#152. When asked what profession they like least, most people will give the obvious answer: clowns. #Quote by Brian South
Profession quotes by S.J. Rozan
#153. I wanted a real profession. And I'd always been interested in architecture and in design and in, really, what makes things work. And understanding what's kind of behind the walls and why things stand up and some things don't. #Quote by S.J. Rozan
Profession quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#154. A countryman between two lawyers is like a fish between two cats. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Profession quotes by Simone Weil
#155. For the soldier death is the future, the future his profession assigns him. Yet the idea of man's having death for a future is abhorrent to nature. Once the experience of war makes visible the possibility of death that lies locked up in each moment, our thoughts cannot travel from one day to the next without meeting death's face. #Quote by Simone Weil
Profession quotes by Kat Dennings
#156. There's nothing else I would rather do, unless there was a profession that involved cuddling bunny rabbits and kittens all day for money. #Quote by Kat Dennings
Profession quotes by William S. Burroughs
#157. Many doctors are drawn to this profession (psychology) because they have an innate deficiency of insight into the motives, feelings and thoughts of others, a deficiency they hope to remedy by ingesting masses of data. #Quote by William S. Burroughs
Profession quotes by Rebecca Lim
#158. Filming this drama made me realise how noble the nursing profession really is
from the selfless dedication to the care and love for patients. Let me take this opportunity to pay tribute to all the great nurses out there! #Quote by Rebecca Lim
Profession quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#159. Of the two classes of Prussian officer, the bull-necked and the wasp-waisted, he belonged to the second. Monocled and effete in appearance, cold and distant in manner, he concentrated with such single-mindedness on his profession that when an aide, at the end of an all-night staff ride in East Prussia, pointed out to him the beauty of the river Pregel sparkling in the rising sun, the General gave a brief, hard look and replied, 'An unimportant obstacle. #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Profession quotes by Maurice Samuel
#160. To say that a schlemiel is a luckless person is to touch only the negative side. It is the schlemiel's avocation and profession to miss out on things, to muff opportunities, to be persistently, organically, preposterously and ingeniously out of place. A hungry schlemiel dreams of a plate of hot soup, and hasn't a spoon. #Quote by Maurice Samuel
Profession quotes by Michael Chekhov
#161. The essence of our profession is to give. What is it that we in the theater give? We give our body, voice, feelings, will, imagination - we give a form of pulsating art to life itself; we give it to our characters and we give it to our audiences. Nothing, absolutely nothing remains for us save the pleasure of having given pleasure. And yet it is only by this miraculous process that our love grows and our talent is fulfilled and replenished. #Quote by Michael Chekhov
Profession quotes by Mary Oliver
#162. I decided very early that I wanted to write. But I didn't think of it as a career. I didn't even think of it as a profession ... It was the most exciting thing, the most powerful thing, the most wonderful thing to do with my life. #Quote by Mary Oliver

Your past disappointments are straightforwardly identified with your future achievement. Without them, you may not be sufficiently inspired to achieve your objectives. Competitors confront overcome regularly all through their vocations yet don't give it a chance to get them down. Rather, they let it drive them to progress. A recent report in which the analysts met Olympic gold medalists found that a large number of those competitors considered mishaps basic to their gold decoration wins.

Disappointment is similarly as basic to your profession, regardless of what your teach. For whatever length of time that you have the correct disposition and view your disappointments as learning encounters, you can utilize them to push forward and make progress.

1.There is no such thing as flawlessness.
This past August, Olympic champion Usain Bolt kept running in the men's 100-meter race at the IAAF World Championships in London. Despite the fact that he was relied upon to win, he completed third, denoting his first misfortune in an Olympic or big showdown last and consummation a 45-race winning streak.

Profession quotes by J.D. Salinger
#165. Do you know what I was smiling at? You wrote down that you were a writer by profession. It sounded to me like the loveliest euphemism I had ever heard. When was writing ever your profession? It's never been anything but your religion. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Profession quotes by Jung Chang
#166. The most direct path to Party was raising pigs. The company had several dozen of these and they occupied an unequaled place in the hearts of the soldiers; officers and men alike would hang around the pigsty, observing, commenting, and willing the animals to grow. If the pigs were doing well, the swine herds were the darlings of the company, and there were many contestants for this profession.

Xiao-her became a full-time swineherd. It was hard, filthy work, not to mention the psychological pressure.

Every night he and his colleagues took turns to get up in the small hours to give the pigs an extra feed. When a sow produced piglets they kept watch night after night in case she crushed them. Precious soybeans were carefully picked, washed, ground, strained, made into 'soybean milk," and lovingly fed to the mother to stimulate her milk.

Life in the air force was very unlike what Xiao-her had imagined. Producing food took up more than a third of the entire time he was in the military. At the end of a year's arduous pig raising, Xiao-her was accepted into the Party.

Like many others, he put his feet up and began to take it easy.

After membership in the Party, everyone's ambition was to become an officer; whatever advantage the former brought, the latter doubled it. Getting to be an officer depended on being picked by one's superiors, so the key was never to displease them. One day Xiao-her was summoned to see one of the co #Quote by Jung Chang

Profession quotes by Thomas Addison
#168. A considerable breakdown in my health has scared me from the anxieties, responsibilities and excitement of my profession; whether temporarily or permanently cannot yet be determined but, whatever may be the issue, be assured that nothing was better calculated to soothe me than the kind interest manifested by the pupils of Guy's Hospital during the many trying years devoted to that institution. #Quote by Thomas Addison
Profession quotes by Francis Chan
#169. Lukewarm people feel secure because they attend church, made a profession of faith at age twelve, were baptized, come from a Christian family, vote Republican, or live in America. Just as the prophets in the Old Testament warned Israel that they were not safe just because they lived in the land of Israel, so we are not safe just because we wear the label 'Christian' or because some people persist in calling us a 'Christian nation. #Quote by Francis Chan
Profession quotes by Wolfgang Puck
#170. Acting is a very artistic profession and there are thousands of people out there who think they are actors but there are very few who have real talent. #Quote by Wolfgang Puck
Profession quotes by John Smeaton
#171. It is contrary to the usual practice of professional men to give their opinions upon each other's work unless regularly called upon in the way of their profession. #Quote by John Smeaton
Profession quotes by Ludwig Van Beethoven
#172. I must confess that I lead a miserable life. For almost two years, I have ceased to attend any social functions, just because I find it impossible to say to people, 'I am deaf.' If I had any other profession, I might be able to cope with my infirmity; but in my profession, it is a terrible handicap. #Quote by Ludwig Van Beethoven
Profession quotes by Morris Fishbein
#173. The individual who violates the rules in a zealous search for an answer to the problem may overstep the bounds and thereby suffer the loss of his relationships to the organized medical profession. #Quote by Morris Fishbein
Profession quotes by Ingmar Bergman
#174. If I didn't have my profession, I think I would be sitting in a nuthouse. But I have been unceasingly at work, and this has been very healthy for me. So I had no need for therapy. #Quote by Ingmar Bergman

Profession quotes by Robin Jarvis
#178. [William] Coxe expresses ... both the pedestrian's advantage of complete freedom of movement, and the inspiring effect of the combination of continual change of scene with maximum time for appreciation that characterises the mobile gaze of the pedestrian traveller. If not a peripatetic by profession, Coxe is clearly one by choice. #Quote by Robin Jarvis
Profession quotes by Naomie Harris
#179. Actors need steely determination. It's a tough profession with plenty of knocks along the way. You have to be very determined and never take 'no' for an answer. #Quote by Naomie Harris
Profession quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#180. Politics is a deleterious profession, like some poisonous handicrafts. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Profession quotes by Karen Rodwill Solomon
#181. So, why does this happen? How is it that individuals brought into the profession and identified by pre-employment testing as mentally healthy, end up mired in addiction at a rate nearly three times the national average? The answer typically lies in the physical and psychological injuries officers suffer during the course of their everyday duties and the profession's internal resistance to helping its own. #Quote by Karen Rodwill Solomon
Profession quotes by William Hazlitt
#182. First impressions are often the truest, as we find (not infrequently) to our cost, when we have been wheedled out of them by plausible professions or studied actions. A man's look is the work of years; it is stamped on his countenance by the events of his whole life, nay, more, by the hand of nature, and it is not to be got rid of easily. #Quote by William Hazlitt
Profession quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#183. I have sometimes thought that, in order to be a good minister, it was necessary to leave the ministry. The profession is antiquated. In an altered age, we worship in the dead forms of our forefathers. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Profession quotes by Robert T. Kiyosaki
#184. I recommend to young people to seek work for what they will learn, more than what they will earn. Look down the road at what skills they want to acquire before choosing a specific profession and before getting trapped in the Rat Race. #Quote by Robert T. Kiyosaki

#185. Teaching is an art and a profession requiring years of training. #Quote by Dick Cavett
Profession quotes by Derek Jacobi
#186. I'm always conscious of the fact that I am part of a profession that is 80% permanently unemployed. So, to be working in any sense is to be privileged. #Quote by Derek Jacobi
Profession quotes by Lisa Unger
#187. Who you marry, what you choose as your profession, how you were raised - yes, that is the big picture. But, as they say, the devil's in the details. #Quote by Lisa Unger
Profession quotes by Lysa TerKeurst
#188. No person, possession, profession, or position ever fills the cup of a wounded, empty heart. It's an emptiness only God can fill. #Quote by Lysa TerKeurst

Profession quotes by Hiroshi Sakurazaka
#190. Is cooking dangerous?"
Most would answer no. But what is a gas range but a short - range flame thrower? Any number of flammable materials might lie waiting beneath the average kitchen sink. Shelves lined with pots could weaken and fall in an avalanche of iron and steel. A butcher's knife could kill as easily as a dagger.
Yet few people would consider cooking a dangerous profession, and indeed, the actual danger is remote. Anyone who has spent any time in a kitchen is familiar with the inherent risks, such as they are, and knows what can be done safely and what can't. Never throw water on an oil fire, keep the knife pointed away from your carotid artery, don't use rat poison when the recipe calls for
parmesan cheese. #Quote by Hiroshi Sakurazaka
Profession quotes by Gary Paul Nabhan
#191. Solitude takes time, and caregivers to children have no time. Our children demand attention and need care. They ask questions and parents must answer. The number of decisions that go into a week of parenting astonishes me. Women have known for centuries what I have just discovered: going to work every day is far easier than staying home raising children...thoughtful parenting requires time to think, and parents of young children do not have time to think...One middle-aged female writing student spoke to me of feeling she lacked the freedom to "play hooky in nature"; it is an act of leisure men indulge in while women stay at home, keeping domestic life in order. Men often can justify poking around in the woods as a part of their profession, or as part of an acceptably manly activity like hunting or fishing. Women, for generations circumscribed by conventional values, must purposefully create opportunities for solitude, for exploration of nature or ideas, for writing. #Quote by Gary Paul Nabhan
Profession quotes by J. Howard Moore
#192. A universe is, indeed, to be pitied whose dominating inhabitants are so unconscious and so ethically embryonic that they make life a commodity, mercy a disease, and systematic massacre a pastime and a profession. #Quote by J. Howard Moore
Profession quotes by F. Sionil Jose
#193. Writing is a solitary profession; you are really alone when you write. Then the emotions become well shaped and distinct. But their transition into words must be done deliberately and with rigid artistry. #Quote by F. Sionil Jose
Profession quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#194. Acting is the loneliest profession I know. #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Profession quotes by Dr. Vernon Coleman
#195. One of the medical profession's greatest boasts is that it eradicated smallpox through the use of the smallpox vaccine. I myself believed this claim for many years. But it simply isn't true! #Quote by Dr. Vernon Coleman
Profession quotes by M. Scott Peck
#196. Instead the attitude of the medical profession has been that miracle cures are nonexistent, that the disease of which a person was cured did not exist in the first place, either because it was an imaginary disorder, such as a hysterical conversion reaction, or else because it was a misdiagnosis. Fortunately, however, a few serious scientists, physicians and religious truth-seekers are currently in the process of beginning to examine the nature of such phenomena as spontaneous remissions in cancer patients and apparently successful examples of psychic healing. Fifteen #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Profession quotes by Paul Washer
#197. If you have made the good profession, if you claimed to have passed through the gate, if you have received baptism in a public declaration of your faith, and you begin to walk-it doesn't matter how long it appears you're walking in that path-if you step off that path and there's no discipline and you continue on that path, you can have no assurance whatsoever of your salvation. And it is not that you lost your salvation, it's that you're showing now that you never had it. If we would only preach these truths #Quote by Paul Washer
Profession quotes by Martyn V. Halm
#198. Pickpocket is a sink-or-swim profession, not something that can be taught in the comfort of your living room. #Quote by Martyn V. Halm
Profession quotes by Dan Simmons
#199. It's one of the strangest attributes of this profession that when we writers get exhausted writing one thing, we relax by writing another. #Quote by Dan Simmons
Profession quotes by Ernst Junger
#200. General" stands here for the individual who goes into action, whether freely or forcedly. Since anarchy offers him an especially favorable charge, this type is permanent today. Thus, "general" has a universal rather than a special meaning. It can be replaced ad libitum. It refers not to a profession but to a condition. The latter may also crop up in a coolie, in which case it is particularly effective. #Quote by Ernst Junger
