Puzzles quotes by David Lynch
#1. You get all the puzzle parts together enough to say the puzzle is complete. It's a script. In the process of realizing that, new ideas can come, one way or another. Through a happy accident, they just come to you. #Quote by David Lynch
Puzzles quotes by Theodor Storm
#2. Between the shadows of the earth and the dark depths of the sky, human life lay slumbering, with all its unsolved puzzles. #Quote by Theodor Storm
Puzzles quotes by Paula McLain

Puzzles quotes by Frank Dobson

Puzzles quotes by Maureen Dowd
#5. It is an astonishing thing that historians will look back and puzzle over, that in the 21st century, American women were such hunted creatures. Even as Republicans try to wrestle women into chastity belts, the Vatican is trying to muzzle American nuns. #Quote by Maureen Dowd
Puzzles quotes by Jasleen Kaur Gumber
#6. How destiny plays games so thrilling,
both stay in the same building.
His books declared for the best seller of the year,
and she lives in the apartment to his but upstairs.
He is making fame, she has committed suicide severe.

The same window of the tall building instigated,
such varied colors.

In the woman-frustration and fear.
In the man- an inspiration so rare.
They share the same height, same sight,
of the same building.
From which,
one flew like kite and the other down right. #Quote by Jasleen Kaur Gumber
Puzzles quotes by Richard Grossman
#7. My books are not about different components that fit together like pieces in a jigsaw puzzle, it's about creating the space around the components, which is almost as important as the components themselves. And that space changes and blends depending upon what the components are. #Quote by Richard Grossman
Puzzles quotes by Catherine Keener
#8. I was a waitress. I was pretty good at it. I liked to solve those puzzles-you know, when to put the dinner order in, that sort of thing. #Quote by Catherine Keener
Puzzles quotes by Brooke McEldowney
#9. People of religious distinction maintain that human beings exclusively possess souls, on the strength of which they may gain admittance to heaven.

Only human beings lie, devise pogroms, murder for recreation, steal, libel, slander and perform crossword puzzles. This says nothing new about the condition of being human, but it does help to illuminate the special contributions of the soul. #Quote by Brooke McEldowney
Puzzles quotes by Peter Wohlleben
#10. But we shouldn't be concerned about trees purely for material reasons, we should also care about them because of the little puzzles and wonders they present us with. Under the canopy of the trees, daily dramas and moving love stories are played out. Here is the last remaining piece of Nature, right on our doorstep, where adventures are to be experienced and secrets discovered. And who knows, perhaps one day the language of trees will eventually be deciphered, giving us the raw material for further amazing stories. Until then, when you take your next walk in the forest, give free rein to your imagination-in many cases, what you imagine is not so far removed from reality, after all! #Quote by Peter Wohlleben
Puzzles quotes by Jenna Morasca
#11. Why are cancer patients so hard to buy for? This question always puzzles me. When people are healthy, things are so simple, including gift buying. A jaunt to the local mall or a day in front of the TV watching QVC can be just enough for all the loved ones on your list. #Quote by Jenna Morasca
Puzzles quotes by Bear Grylls
#12. Over the next few days we spent every waking moment together. We made up silly dances, did puzzles in the evening, and she stood smiling on the beach waiting for me as I took my customary New Year's dip in the freezing cold North Atlantic.
I just had a sense that we were meant to be.
I even found out she lived in the next-door road along from where I was renting a room from a friend in London. What were the chances of that?
As the week drew to a close we both got ready to head back south to London. She was flying. I was driving.
"I'll beat you to London," I challenged her.
She smiled knowingly. "No, you won't." (But I love your spirit.)
She, of course, won. It took me ten hours to drive. But at 10:00 P.M. that same night I turned up at her door and knocked.
She answered in her pajamas.
"Damn, you were right," I said, laughing. "Shall we go for some supper together?"
"I'm in my pajamas, Bear."
"I know, and you look amazing. Put a coat on. Come on."
And so she did.
Our first date, and Shara in her pajamas. Now here was a cool girl.
From then on we were rarely apart. I delivered love letters to her office by day and persuaded her to take endless afternoons off.
We roller-skated in the parks, and I took her down to the Isle of Wight for the weekends.
Mum and Dad had since moved to my grandfather's old house in Dorset, and had rented out our cottage on the island. But we still had an old caravan parked down #Quote by Bear Grylls
Puzzles quotes by Bonnie Bassler
#13. As a kid, I loved doing puzzles, solving riddles, and reading mystery books. I also loved animals and always had pets. #Quote by Bonnie Bassler
Puzzles quotes by Lisa See
#14. Maybe our lives are like gigantic jigsaw puzzles. You find the right piece and suddenly the whole picture has meaning. #Quote by Lisa See
Puzzles quotes by Abigail Washburn
#15. I would still describe China as a vast, invigorating puzzle that will never make sense to my western upbringing. #Quote by Abigail Washburn
Puzzles quotes by Martin Gardner
#16. Consider a cow. A cow doesn't have the problem-solving skill of a chimpanzee, which has discovered how to get termites out of the ground by putting a stick into a hole. Evolution has developed the brain's ability to solve puzzles, and at the same time has produced in our brain a pleasure of solving problems. #Quote by Martin Gardner
Puzzles quotes by Terry Bradshaw
#17. I'm taking memory power boost tablets to help me every day and doing the puzzles to help me stay focused. #Quote by Terry Bradshaw
Puzzles quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#18. We perceive the world through the rear window of life, observe all the puzzles and little pieces of our existence and assemble them in a comprehensive pattern. This allows us to reassess and evaluate our world view. ( "Waiting for the pieces to fall into place" ) #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Puzzles quotes by Robin Parrish
#19. The Corridor is a series of environments, challenges, and puzzles that have to be overcome. I'm the Conduit, you're the Runner. I'm here to tell you the rules. You must decide how to use them. #Quote by Robin Parrish
Puzzles quotes by Derek Bailey
#20. In so far as I listen with interest to a record, it's usually to figure out how it was arrived at. The musical end product is where interest starts to flag. It's a bit like jigsaw puzzles. Emptied out of the box, there's a heap of pieces, all shapes, sizes and colours, in themselves attractive and could add up to anything
intriguing. Figuring out how to put them together can be interesting, but what you finish up with as often as not is a picture of unsurpassed banality. Music's like that."
From "Derek Bailey and the Story of Free Improvisation" by Ben Watson, Verso, London, 2004, p. 440. #Quote by Derek Bailey
Puzzles quotes by Louis Armstrong
#21. It really puzzles me to see marijuana connected with narcotics dope and all of that stuff. It is a thousand times better than whiskey. It is an assistant and a friend. #Quote by Louis Armstrong
Puzzles quotes by Tabatha Coffey
#22. I have always been a fixer. I am a fixer. I like problems, and I like puzzles, and I like to help people, so I have been a fixer, and I have always been an educator. #Quote by Tabatha Coffey
Puzzles quotes by Sergei Lukyanenko
#23. I often use detective elements in my books. I love detective novels. But I also think science fiction and detective stories are very close and friendly genres, which shows in the books by Isaac Asimov, John Brunner, and Glen Cook. However, whilst even a tiny drop of science fiction may harm a detective story, a little detective element benefits science fiction. Such a strange puzzle. #Quote by Sergei Lukyanenko
Puzzles quotes by Thomas S. Kuhn
#24. Normal science, the activity in which most scientists inevitably spend almost all their time, is predicated on the assumption that the scientific community knows what the world is like #Quote by Thomas S. Kuhn
Puzzles quotes by Walter Murch
#25. Every film is a puzzle really, from an editorial point of view. #Quote by Walter Murch
Puzzles quotes by John Steinbeck
#26. The one thing our species is helpless against is good fortune. It first puzzles, then frightens, then angers, and finally destroys us. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Puzzles quotes by William L. Lane
#27. Hebrews is a delight for the person who enjoys puzzles...It invites engagement in the task of defining the undefined. #Quote by William L. Lane
Puzzles quotes by Nihar Satpathy
#28. It goes without saying that the human mind is a powerhouse of hidden clues. It's only that we are not aware of it. All of us are endowed with an immense ability to resolve most of the questions that torment us. All that is required is to delve deep and unravel the rays of light that lie within the darkness of our mind. We have layers of wisdom that remain unexplored within us. What matters is a strong intent and resolve to reach out to our inner self to retrieve those answers. #Quote by Nihar Satpathy
Puzzles quotes by Lena Goldfinch
#29. Something inside him shifted and came to rest, as if it had found its proper place. It was like one of his sister's wooden tumbling puzzles, like the satisfying click it made when all its many turning pieces were perfectly aligned. #Quote by Lena Goldfinch
Puzzles quotes by Steve Hamilton
#30. The greatest puzzle in the world, young man, the greatest challenge a man can face, a solving the riddle of a women's heart. #Quote by Steve Hamilton
Puzzles quotes by Lawrence Kushner
#31. Everyone carries with them at least one piece to someone else's puzzle. #Quote by Lawrence Kushner
Puzzles quotes by Marty Rubin
#32. What if you have all the pieces and puzzle still doesn't fit? #Quote by Marty Rubin
Puzzles quotes by Tim Pratt
#33. I love drafting like I love eating ice cream or having sex; I love revising like I love doing logic puzzles; I love line-editing like I love perfectly organizing a bookshelf; I hate reviewing copyedits and the second round of proofreading because, by then, I'm getting pretty tired of my own words. They all have their own challenges, though. #Quote by Tim Pratt
Puzzles quotes by Amy Harmon
#34. I guess it means we don't understand everything, and we're not going to. Maybe the whys aren't answered here. Not because there aren't answers, but because we wouldn't understand the answers if we had them. Maybe there's a bigger purpose, a bigger picture that we only contribute a very small piece to. You know, like one of those thousand piece puzzles? There's no way you can tell by looking at one piece of the puzzle what the puzzle is going to look like in the end. And we don't have the picture on the outside of the puzzle box to guide us. Maybe everyone represents a piece of the puzzle. We all fit together to create this experience we call life. None of us can see the part we play or the way it all turns out. Maybe the miracles that we see are just the tip of the iceberg. And maybe we just don't recognize the blessings that come as a result of terrible things. #Quote by Amy Harmon
Puzzles quotes by Henny Youngman
#35. A doctor has a stethoscope up to a man's chest. The man asks, "Doc, how do I stand?" The doctor says, "That's what puzzles me!" #Quote by Henny Youngman
Puzzles quotes by NoViolet Bulawayo
#36. Others with names like myths, names like puzzles, names we had never heard before: Virgilio, Balamugunthan, Faheem, Abdulrahman, Aziz, Baako, Dae-Hyun, Ousmane, Kimatsu. When it was hard to say the many strange names, we called them by their countries.
So how on earth do you do this, Sri Lanka?
Mexico, are you coming or what?
Is it really true you sold a kidney to come to America, India?
Guys, just give Tshaka Zulu a break, the guy is old, I'm just saying.
We know you despise this job, Sudan, but deal with it, man.
Come, Ethiopia, move, move, move; Israel, Kazakhstn, Niger, brothers, let's go! #Quote by NoViolet Bulawayo
Puzzles quotes by Dan Chaon
#37. It's very hard - weirdly hard - to clear your mind of all that crap so that you can just sit down and write and find that place where you're just involved and enjoying the imaginary place you've discovered. All the other "problems" with writing are just puzzles, and they can be interesting to try to crack, even when it's frustrating. #Quote by Dan Chaon
Puzzles quotes by Larry Ellison
#38. Building Oracle is like doing math puzzles as a kid. #Quote by Larry Ellison
Puzzles quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#39. No mountain is too high, but so many people can't climb even a hill. There is always a way to the top, but so many people can't even get the mid and many miss the way. Life is real and the journey of life comes with rules. Mind the real and distinctive rules that lead to success and you shall get to the very peak of the mountain of success surmounting all barriers, challenges and puzzles along the journey to success with a great degree of ease! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Puzzles quotes by Fred Rogers
#40. It's the people we love the most who can make us feel the gladdest ... and the maddest! Love and anger are such a puzzle! #Quote by Fred Rogers
Puzzles quotes by Camille Lucy
#41. We are all beautiful and magical puzzles made up of so many tiny pieces and parts. Without just one of them, something would be missing and we would not be whole. It is all of our parts that make us who we are and make life what it is. Each piece is special and beautiful and necessary. Even those we do not yet understand or that bring up challenges for us and in our life. Every single piece fits perfectly. #Quote by Camille Lucy
Puzzles quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#42. If you can afford to live in this worldly life, then there is nothing you need to understand further, and if you find the worldly life bothersome then you need to understand spirituality. In spirituality, we need to know the nature of the Self (Soul). When 'who am I?' is known then all puzzles will be solved. #Quote by Dada Bhagwan
Puzzles quotes by Tim Schafer
#43. I think I just have an idea in my head about how big an adventure game should be, so it's hard for me to design one that's much smaller than Grim Fandango or Full Throttle. There's just a certain amount of scope needed to create a complex puzzle space and to develop a real story. At least with my brain, there is. #Quote by Tim Schafer
Puzzles quotes by Nash Summers
#44. She doesn't like puzzles." Finally, Mallory turned to me, his eyes alight. "I want to be with a woman who likes puzzles. #Quote by Nash Summers
Puzzles quotes by John Charles Pollock
#45. In youth his mind had been closed, for every prejudice of upbringing was a disinfectant against pagan ideas. He now had an even more satisfying answer to the puzzles of human strivings and destiny. Paganism at its philosophical best would appear a gluttering candle to a man who had followed the Light of the World, and more usually it was idolatry, mixed with license. #Quote by John Charles Pollock
Puzzles quotes by Christopher Bollen
#46. You find when you're writing a detective story that you're actually not trying to solve anything. You're trying to stop the reader from solving the puzzle. #Quote by Christopher Bollen
Puzzles quotes by Dizzy Dean
#47. It puzzles me how they know what corners are good for filling stations. Just how did they know gas and oil was under there? #Quote by Dizzy Dean
Puzzles quotes by John Galsworthy
#48. Every phase and question of life is brought more and more into the limelight. Theatres, cinemas, the radio, and even lectures, assist the process. But they do not, and should not replace reading, because when we are just watching and listening, somebody is taking very good care that we should not stop and think. The danger in this age is not of our remaining ignorant; it is that we should lose the power of thinking for ourselves. Problems are more and more put before us, but, except to crossword puzzles and detective mysteries, do we attempt to find the answers for ourselves? Less and less. The short cut seems ever more and more desirable. But the short cut to knowledge is nearly always the longest way round. There is nothing like knowledge, picked up by or reasoned out for oneself. #Quote by John Galsworthy
Puzzles quotes by Mason Cooley
#49. Curiosity, easily frightened, takes refuge in puzzles, murder mysteries, and spectator sports. #Quote by Mason Cooley
Puzzles quotes by Eiji Aonuma
#50. When Mr. Miyamoto says easy, he doesnt mean simple. He means easily
this is the difficulty of the language here. Its accessible, and you know how to do things, if not necessarily what to do. You may have a series of puzzles to figure out, and it may be difficult to decipher the meaning, but its not difficult to accomplish what you need to do. #Quote by Eiji Aonuma
Puzzles quotes by Megan Shepherd
#51. We have three rules we require you to follow," the Caretaker continued, oblivious of her fear, "which are for your own benefit and that of your species. The first is to solve the enrichment puzzles. This will strengthen your physical and mental conditioning. The second rule is to maintain your health by eating the food we provide for you, getting ample sleep, and cooperating in routine health assessments. The third rule is to ensure the continuation of your species by engaging in procreative activities. #Quote by Megan Shepherd
Puzzles quotes by Sarah Dessen
#52. He's very nice. He's something I replied. She considered this zipping her purse shut. Then she said Well everyone is. Everyone is Something. For some reason that stuck with me simple and yet not every since she'd said it. It was like a puzzle as well two vague words with one clear one between them. #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Puzzles quotes by Hugh Laurie
#53. I don't really understand why everybody doesn't want to direct. It's an absolutely fascinating combination of skills required and puzzles set on every possible level, emotional and practical and technical. It calls upon such a wide variety of skills. I find it completely absorbing. #Quote by Hugh Laurie
Puzzles quotes by Oliver Lodge
#54. The discovery which has been pointed to by theory is always one of profound interest and importance, but it is usually the close and crown of a long and fruitful period, whereas the discovery which comes as a puzzle and surprise usually marks a fresh epoch and opens a new chapter in science. #Quote by Oliver Lodge
Puzzles quotes by Thomas S. Kuhn
#55. The scientific enterprise as a whole does from time to time prove useful, open up new territory, display order, and test long-accepted belief. Nevertheless, the individual engaged on a normal research problem is almost never doing any one of these things. Once engaged, his motivation is of a rather different sort. What then challenges him is the conviction that, if only he is skillful enough, he will succeed in solving a puzzle that no one before has solved or solved so well. Many of the greatest scientific minds have devoted all of their professional attention to demanding puzzles of this sort. On most occasions any particular field of specialization offers nothing else to do, a fact that makes it no less fascinating to the proper sort of addict. #Quote by Thomas S. Kuhn
Puzzles quotes by Dashiell Hammett
#56. What I try to do is write a story about a detective rather than a detective story. Keeping the reader fooled until the last, possible moment is a good trick and I usually try to play it, but I can't attach more than secondary importance to it. The puzzle isn't so interesting to me as the behavior of the detective attacking it. #Quote by Dashiell Hammett
Puzzles quotes by Chinua Achebe
#57. ...Nothing puzzles God #Quote by Chinua Achebe
Puzzles quotes by Bernie Siegel
#58. If something controls you in a way that puzzles you, think of it as a mystery. Mysteries are best approached by closing your eyes and mouth to experience darkness and silence. I find new and healing images in that dark, silent place away from emotions that control me. Do not be afraid to close your eyes and be silent in prayer, meditation, rest or sleep. In those states you may rediscover a new self. Then your life, time and thoughts will become yours again and you can live your unique myth. #Quote by Bernie Siegel
Puzzles quotes by Gotye
#59. Sometimes I'll have sections that I'm not quite sure how they fit in the puzzle of a tune, they'll get moved around; what I think was originally a verse ends up becoming the chorus, or what's an intro gets dropped as a hook, things get shifted around a lot. #Quote by Gotye
Puzzles quotes by Michio Kaku
#60. The idea that excites me the most concerns the two greatest puzzles in science: the origin of the universe, and the origin of consciousness. The origin of the universe is what I do for a living, working on string theory. But I am also fascinated by consciousness. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Puzzles quotes by Rashida Jones
#61. My activities tend to revolve around crossword puzzles, reading and playing piano and games with my friends. #Quote by Rashida Jones
Puzzles quotes by Andrew McMahon
#62. I have a really hard time connecting to music that doesn't feel like I'm somehow solving a puzzle that applies to my life. #Quote by Andrew McMahon
Puzzles quotes by Peter Gray
#63. While, naturally, he has to gauge risk, to read the elements, he still often bemoans the hardships of the past. He constantly puzzles over the role of remote influences, like the after-life. He wants to know why events happen as they do, how control is exercised from beyond understanding. #Quote by Peter Gray
Puzzles quotes by Krista Tippett
#64. Oments of transport, and of comfort, and of a bracing vastness of possibility. That was all there for me sometimes when I plunged my mind into the Bible's puzzles; and it was always there in the music of church. I wouldn't have said it this way then. But I would feel all the cells in my body as I sang hymns that connected my little life with the grandeur of the cosmos, the Christian drama across space and time. This was my earliest experience of breath and body, mind and spirit soaring together, alive to both mystery and reality, in kinship with others both familiar and unknown. That's one way I'd define the feeling of faith now. #Quote by Krista Tippett
Puzzles quotes by Brian Regan
#65. I was watchin' the news the other day, and I heard them talking about a criminal named Brian Regan same spelling and everything. He's gonna be in jail for the rest of his life. So I'm sitting there doing a crossword puzzle and all of a sudden I hear, It is unknown whether the charges against Brian Regan will lead to his execution. Guess I can put this down. Honey, did we pay that parking ticket?! #Quote by Brian Regan
Puzzles quotes by Katherine Paterson
#66. It wasn't so much that he minded telling Leslie that he was afraid to go; it was that he minded being afraid. It was as though he had been made with a great piece missing - one of May Belle's puzzles with this huge gap where somebody's eye should have been. Lord, it would be better to be born without an arm than to go through life with no guts. #Quote by Katherine Paterson
Puzzles quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#67. Now for the hitch in Jane's character,' he said at last, speaking more calmly than from his look I had expected him to speak. 'The reel of silk has run smoothly enough so far; but I always knew there would come a knot and a puzzle: here it is. Now for vexation, and exasperation, and endless trouble! #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Puzzles quotes by Edward Kasner
#68. Puzzles are made of the things that the mathematician, no less than the child, plays with, and dreams and wonders about, for they are made of things and circumstances of the world he [or she] live in. #Quote by Edward Kasner
Puzzles quotes by Erno Rubik
#69. If you are curious, you'll find the puzzles around you. If you are determined, you will solve them. #Quote by Erno Rubik
Puzzles quotes by Andrew Elfenbein
#70. While much recent historicist criticism has assumed early nineteenth-century readers attuned to subtle ideological nuances in poetry, actual responses from readers often come closer to clulessness ... It is no surprise that no one understood Blake, but other poets fared not much better ... Coleridge's 'Christabel' was 'the standing enigma which puzzles the curiosity of literary circles. What is it all about?', while another reviewer asked about Shelley, 'What, in the name of wonder on one side, and of common sense on the other, is the meaning of this metaphysical rhapsody about the unbinding of Prometheus?'. Even Keats was condemned for 'his frequent obscurity and confusion of language' and his 'unintelligible quaintness'. Byron, never to be outdone, boasted in 'Don Juan' that not only did he not understand many of his fellow poets, he did not understand himself either: 'I don't pretend that I quite understand / My own meaning when I would be very fine.' ... #Quote by Andrew Elfenbein
Puzzles quotes by Steven Rubenstein
#71. Black. Simply remove all the little colored stickers on the cube, and each of side of the cube will now be the original color of the plastic underneath - black. According to the instructions, this means the puzzle is solved. #Quote by Steven Rubenstein
Puzzles quotes by David Nicholls
#72. He's wearing his official university sweatshirt again, which puzzles me a little. I mean I'd sort of understand it more if it said Yale or Harvard or something, because then it would be a fashion choice. But why advertise the fact that you're at a university to all the other people who are at the university with you? #Quote by David Nicholls
Puzzles quotes by Paul Davies
#73. Unfortunately, most of the prevailing descriptions of quantum theory tend to emphasize puzzles and paradoxes in a way that makes philosophers, theologians, and even non-physicist scientists leery of actually using in any deep way the profound changes in our understanding of human beings in nature wrought by the quantum revolution. Yet, properly presented, quantum mechanics is thoroughly in line with our deep human intuitions. It is the 300 years of indoctrination with basically false ideas about how nature works that now makes puzzling a process that is completely in line with normal human intuition. #Quote by Paul Davies
Puzzles quotes by Chetan Bhagat
#74. I saw [Chennai]. It had the usual Indian elements like autos, packed public buses, hassled traffic cops and tiny shops that sold groceries, fruits, utensils, clothes or novelty items. However, it did feel different. First, the sign in every shop was in Tamil. The Tamil font resembles those optical illusion puzzles that give you a headache if you stare at them long enough. Tamil women, all of them, wear flkowers in their hair. Tamil men don't believe in pants and wear lungis even in shopping districts. The city is filled with film posters. The heroes' pictures make you feel even your uncles can be movie stars. The heroes are fat, balding, have thick moustaches and the heroine next to them is a ravishing beauty. #Quote by Chetan Bhagat
Puzzles quotes by Emily Murdoch
#75. My life's a tangle of past and present, like two separate puzzles with their pieces tumbled together. Nothing fits. #Quote by Emily Murdoch
Puzzles quotes by Nihar Satpathy
#76. How many times has it occurred to us that, among others, life is also a bundle of puzzles? A series of questions, that is. #Quote by Nihar Satpathy
Puzzles quotes by Josh McDermitt
#77. I love puzzles, but when I'm done putting together a puzzle, I feel accomplished, and then I wonder, "What's next?" Then I go start another puzzle. #Quote by Josh McDermitt
Puzzles quotes by Denis Markell
#78. It seems like the best escape games come from Japan for some reason. It makes me proud. #Quote by Denis Markell
Puzzles quotes by Richard Feynman
#79. Mysteries like these repeating cycles make it very interesting to be a theoretical physicist: Nature gives us such wonderful puzzles! Why does She repeat the electron at 206 times and 3,640 times its mass? #Quote by Richard Feynman
Puzzles quotes by Howard Markel
#80. Such elusive puzzles recall the historian's basic dilemma: the absence of evidence does not always signify evidence of absence. In the end, we will likely never know. #Quote by Howard Markel
Puzzles quotes by Helen Frankenthaler
#81. Whatever the medium, there is the difficulty, challenge, fascination and often productive clumsiness of learning a new method: the wonderful puzzles and problems of translating with new materials. #Quote by Helen Frankenthaler
Puzzles quotes by Donalyn Miller
#82. I don't believe some teachers consider whether their classroom instruction fosters the development of reading habits in their students. Reflecting on the landslide of crossword puzzles, dioramas, annotations, and reading logs assigned to their students for every book they read, teachers might realize that instead of encouraging students to read, these mindless assignments make kids hate reading. Primarily assigned to generate grades and give teachers a false sense that they are holding students accountable for reading, these counterfeit activities - that no wild reader completes on his or her own - guarantee that their students will avoid reading. If we care about our students' reading lives, we must foster their lifelong reading habits and eliminate or reduce the negative influences of classroom practices that don't align with what wild readers do. #Quote by Donalyn Miller
Puzzles quotes by Theodore Zeldin
#83. Each person is an enigma. You're a puzzle not only to yourself but also to everyone else, and the great mystery of our time is how we penetrate this puzzle. #Quote by Theodore Zeldin
Puzzles quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#84. Man is a mystery: if you spend your entire life trying to puzzle it out, then do not say that you have wasted your time. I occupy myself with this mystery, because I want to be a man. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Puzzles quotes by Nihar Satpathy
#85. Why does Sri Krishna say in the Gita that whenever the evil forces raise their head he appears on earth to support the righteous ones? Why does he rather not bring a final end to the perpetual fight between good and evil, instead? Why should evil rise again and again? Mankind is tired of perpetually facing the onslaught of evil. Why does it not get crushed once and for all? Why does God not make it happen? This question often puzzles us. #Quote by Nihar Satpathy
Puzzles quotes by Demetri Martin
#86. Yes, okay, it's cool to be quirky, maybe, on the side. Do some puzzles, make puzzles, whatever, learn how to ride a unicycle. That's cool when it's on the side and you have a plan. What happens when you remove the plan? What you're left with is a guy who likes to do anagrams. And doesn't have a job ... Sweet, that's a catch. #Quote by Demetri Martin
Puzzles quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#87. Nearly every book has the same architecture--cover, spine, pages--but you open them onto worlds and gifts far beyond what paper and ink are, and on the inside they are every shape and power. Some books are toolkits you take up to fix things, from the most practical to the mostmysterious, from your house to your heart, or to make things, from cakes to ships. Some books are wings. Some are horses that run away with you. Some are parties to which you are invited, full of friends who are there even when you have no friends. In some books you meet one remarkable person; in others a whole group or even a culture. Some books are medicine, bitter but clarifying. Some books are puzzles, mazes, tangles, jungles. Some long books are journeys, and at the end you are not the same person you were at the beginning. Some are handheld lights you can shine on almost anything. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Puzzles quotes by Anonymous
#88. The mistakes were made by people who did not know how to wield the concepts University, division and team-spirit. Their puzzles arose from inability to use certain items in the English vocabulary. #Quote by Anonymous
Puzzles quotes by Tony DiTerlizzi
#89. The real question one should ask when presented with a puzzle is, 'Should I solve it? Do I really need to know the answer? #Quote by Tony DiTerlizzi
Puzzles quotes by James Joyce
#90. I've put in so many enigmas and puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant, and that is the only way of insuring one's immortality. #Quote by James Joyce
Puzzles quotes by Billy Collins
#91. ... balancing the wish to be lost with the need to be found. #Quote by Billy Collins
Puzzles quotes by Colson Whitehead
#92. Georgina hailed from Delaware and had that vexing way of Delaware ladies, delighting in puzzles. #Quote by Colson Whitehead
Puzzles quotes by Kim Holden
#93. And my heart shatters for the second time today. It's blown apart into so many pieces, the shrapnel spread so far and wide, I know what remains will never fit back together again. Puzzles don't work when you only have half of the pieces. Same goes for hearts. I #Quote by Kim Holden

#94. So far a lot of battles I have won, so far I have reached the game with the chess puzzles 105 level out of 350. #Quote by Deyth Banger
Puzzles quotes by Paul Tournier
#95. What happens then is like what happens when we separate a jigsaw puzzle into its fuve hundred pieces: The over-all picture disappears. This is the state of modern medicine: It has lost the sense of the unity of man. Such is the price it has paid for its scientific progress. It has sacrificed art to science. #Quote by Paul Tournier
Puzzles quotes by Virginia Satir
#96. I am me

In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me
Everything that comes out of me is authentically me
Because I alone chose it – I own everything about me
My body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions,
Whether they be to others or to myself – I own my fantasies,
My dreams, my hopes, my fears – I own all my triumphs and
Successes, all my failures and mistakes Because I own all of
Me, I can become intimately acquainted with me – by so doing
I can love me and be friendly with me in all my parts – I know
There are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other
Aspects that I do not know – but as long as I am
Friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously
And hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles
And for ways to find out more about me – However I
Look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever
I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically
Me – If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought
And felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is
Unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that
Which I discarded – I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do
I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be
Productive to make sense and order out of the world of
People and things outside of me – I own me, and
therefore I can engineer me – I am me and
I AM OKAY #Quote by Virginia Satir

#97. Amazingly when you add life and consciousness to the equation you can actually explain some of the biggest puzzles of science. #Quote by Robert Lanza
Puzzles quotes by Lorraine Hansberry
#98. Do I remain a revolutionary? Intellectually
without a doubt. But am I prepared to give my body to the struggle or even my comforts? This is what I puzzle about. #Quote by Lorraine Hansberry
Puzzles quotes by Margaret Atwood
#99. When in doubt, when flat on your back, you can look at the ceiling. Who knows what you may see, up there? Funeral wreaths and angels, constellations of dust, stellar or otherwise, the puzzles left by spiders. There's always something to occupy the inquiring mind. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Puzzles quotes by Pierre Trudeau
#100. If there is anything that puzzles me in this game, it is that the longer that you are in the job of prime minister, the harder you have to work to do your job. With anything else ... you get to know the ropes pretty well and it becomes easy. I feel the more you know, the more you have to know and the more problems come at you. It is certainly not because I do not delegate. #Quote by Pierre Trudeau
Puzzles quotes by Sonia Sotomayor
#101. I was a keen observer and listener. I picked up on clues. I figured things out logically, and I enjoyed puzzles. I loved the clear, focused feeling that came when I concentrated on solving a problem and everything else faded out. #Quote by Sonia Sotomayor
Puzzles quotes by Thomas S. Kuhn
#102. Under normal conditions the research scientist is not an innovator but a solver of puzzles, and the puzzles upon which he concentrates are just those which he believes can be both stated and solved within the existing scientific tradition. #Quote by Thomas S. Kuhn
Puzzles quotes by Josh McDermitt
#103. Stop trying to figure it out. I love puzzles, but when I'm done putting together a puzzle, I feel accomplished, and then I wonder, "What's next?" Then I go start another puzzle. Life is a puzzle that I feel like we'll never fully put together. And I like that because, ultimately, I don't want to have life figured out and then wonder, "What's next?" That seems scary to me. #Quote by Josh McDermitt
Puzzles quotes by Bill Hybels
#104. Jesus is not directing the angelic choir, taking long naps, or doing crossword puzzles. He is completely focused on building his church, the hope of the world. #Quote by Bill Hybels
Puzzles quotes by Sarah Shahi
#105. Honestly, as an actor, all I need to know, the way I kind of look at a scene, is like a puzzle. There are certain puzzle pieces that are bigger than others, and all I need to know is if this is going to fit here to make this part of the puzzle work. #Quote by Sarah Shahi
Puzzles quotes by Quincy Jones
#106. Well, listen, anger doesn't get anything done, so you have to find out: How do you make it work? That's why I was always maniacal about transforming every problem into a puzzle which I can solve. I can solve a puzzle - a problem just stresses me out. #Quote by Quincy Jones
Puzzles quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#107. We all have a little weakness, which is very natural but rather misleading, for supposing that this epoch must be the end of the world because it will be the end of us. How future generations will get on without us is indeed, when we come to think of it, quite a puzzle. But I suppose they will get on somehow, and may possibly venture to revise our judgments as we have revised earlier judgments. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton

Puzzles quotes by Bonnie Bassler

Puzzles quotes by Deyth Banger
#111. The life could be unique, incrediable, awesome, irreplaceable and gorgeous. Without "Easy-Peasy", by putting all people to solve puzzles for example. Somebody asks you a question like "Who is Janne WillDrog?" you answer like that "Never had a future, never went to library, never had a chance to be part of the White House. The White Costumed guy knows the answer!" - The find answer you must solve the riddle and to assemble the puzzle! #Quote by Deyth Banger
Puzzles quotes by Alex Kakuyo
#112. Because there's no missing puzzle piece. And there's no great mystery to solve. I'm perfect and complete exactly as I am. The world is perfect and complete exactly as it is. An my practice is learning to accept that fact regardless of what desire tells me. #Quote by Alex Kakuyo
Puzzles quotes by Dov Seidman

Puzzles quotes by Charles Spurgeon

Puzzles quotes by Anna Quindlen
#115. The beginning and the end are never really the journey of discovery for me. It is the middle that remains a puzzle until well into the writing. That's how life is most of the time, isn't it? You know where you are and where you hope to wind up. It's the getting there that's challenging. #Quote by Anna Quindlen
Puzzles quotes by Marjorie Hillis
#116. There's still another problem which puzzles a lot of people - whether or not a baby will come within the budget. Our sentimental advice is to have one anyway, if you want one and have been through the marriage ceremony. The people who wait till they can afford a baby seldom have one at all except by surprise. #Quote by Marjorie Hillis

Puzzles quotes by J. Robbins

Puzzles quotes by Miriam Toews
#125. Our dreams are little stories or puzzles that we must solve to be free, Sebastian said. He was reading out loud from Wilson's notebook. My dream is me offering me a solution to the conundrum of my life. My dream is me offering me something that I need and my responsibility to myself is to try to understand what it means. Our dreams are a thin curtain between survival and extinction. #Quote by Miriam Toews
Puzzles quotes by Vera Nazarian
#126. Not every puzzle is intended to be solved. Some are in place to test your limits. Others are, in fact, not puzzles at all ... #Quote by Vera Nazarian
Puzzles quotes by E. M. Forster
#127. In Maurice I tried to create a character who was completely unlike myself or what I supposed myself to be: someone handsome, healthy, bodily attractive, mentally torpid, not a bad business man and rather a snob. Into this mixture I dropped an ingredient that puzzles him, wakes him up, torments him and finally saves him. #Quote by E. M. Forster
Puzzles quotes by Ludwig Boltzmann
#128. The most ordinary things are to philosophy a source of insoluble puzzles. With infinite ingenuity it constructs a concept of space or time and then finds it absolutely impossible that there be objects in this space or that processes occur during this time ... the source of this kind of logic lies in excessive confidence in the so-called laws of thought. #Quote by Ludwig Boltzmann

Puzzles quotes by Brandon Prust
#133. Well, to have some teams come at you like Montreal did, it's definitely flattering, and I think it was good for me to also set a precedent for players like me and how important we can be to teams. That was something I was happy to do as well, you know? Sometimes players like me are maybe overlooked or not looked at as an important piece to the puzzle, but it was something I wanted to prove and wanted to show. #Quote by Brandon Prust
Puzzles quotes by David Sedaris
#134. When asked "What do we need to learn this for?" any high-school teacher can confidently answer that, regardless of the subject, the knowledge will come in handy once the student hits middle age and starts working crossword puzzles in order to stave off the terrible loneliness. #Quote by David Sedaris
Puzzles quotes by Norman Mailer
#135. I don't want to retire. I'm not that good at crossword puzzles #Quote by Norman Mailer
Puzzles quotes by Terry Eagleton
#136. Wittgenstein came to believe that a great many philosophical puzzles arise out of people misusing language in this way. Take, for example, the statement 'I have a pain', which is grammatically akin to 'I have a hat'. This similarity might mislead us into thinking that pains, or 'experiences' in general, are things we have in the same way that we have hats. But it would be strange to say 'Here, take my pain'. And though it would make sense to say 'Is this your hat or mine?', it would sound odd to ask 'Is this your pain or mine?' Perhaps there are several people in a room and a pain floating around in it; and as each person in turn doubles up in agony, we exclaim: 'Ah, now he's having it!'

This sounds merely silly; but in fact it has some fairly momentous implications. Wittgenstein is able to disentangle the grammar of 'I have a hat' from 'I have a pain' not only in a way that throws light on the use of personal pronouns like 'I' and 'he', but in ways which undermine the long-standing assumption that my experiences are a kind of private property. In fact, they seem even more like private property than my hat, since I can give away my hat, but not my pain. Wittgenstein shows us how grammar deceives us into thinking this way, and his case has radical, even politically radical, consequences.

The task of the philosopher, Wittgenstein thought, was not so much to resolve these inquiries as to dissolve them – to show that they spring from confusing one kind of 'l #Quote by Terry Eagleton

Puzzles quotes by John Flavel
#138. [Providences] often puzzle and entangle our thoughts, but bring them to the Word, and your duty will be quickly manifested. "Until I went into the sanctuary of God, then understood I their end" (Ps. 73:17). And not only their end, but his own duty, to be quiet in an afflicted condition and not envy their prosperity. #Quote by John Flavel
Puzzles quotes by Nathan Hill
#139. You have to be careful," Pwnage said, "with people who are puzzles and people who are traps. A puzzle can be solved but a trap cannot. Usually what happens is you think someone's a puzzle until you realize they're a trap. But by then it's too late. That's the trap. #Quote by Nathan Hill

Puzzles quotes by Isaac Asimov
#141. It isn't just you. It's the whole Galaxy. Pirenne heard Lord Dorwin's idea of scientific research. Lord Dorwin thought the way to be a good archaeologist was to read all the books on the subject - written by men who were dead for centuries. He thought that the way to solve archaeological puzzles was to weigh the opposing authorities. And Pirenne listened and made no objections. Don't you see that there's something wrong with that? #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Puzzles quotes by Chris Pine

Puzzles quotes by Randy Ingermanson
#143. Readers don't want to read about somebody else having powerful emotions ... Readers want to become somebody else for a few hours, to live an exciting life, to find true love, to face down unimaginable terrors, to solve impossible puzzles, to feel a lightning jolt of adrenaline. #Quote by Randy Ingermanson
Puzzles quotes by Matt Ruff
#144. Something else that puzzles me about other people is that a lot of them don't know their purpose in life. This usually does bother them - more than not being able to remember being born, anyway - but I can't even imagine it. Part of knowing who I am is knowing why I am, and I've always known who I am, from the first moment. #Quote by Matt Ruff
Puzzles quotes by Deyth Banger

Puzzles quotes by Paul Desmond
#146. Complexity can be a trap. You can have a ball developing a phrase, inverting it, playing it in different keys and times and all. But it's really more introspective than communicative. Like a crossword puzzle compared to a poem. #Quote by Paul Desmond
Puzzles quotes by Bill Gates
#147. My wife thinks she's better than me at puzzles. I haven't given in on that one yet. #Quote by Bill Gates
Puzzles quotes by Derrick Jensen

Puzzles quotes by M.C. Escher

Puzzles quotes by Florida Scott-Maxwell
#153. Age puzzles me. I thought it was a quiet time. My seventies were interesting, and fairly serene, but my eighties are passionate. I grow more intense as I age. To my own surprise I burst out with hot conviction. Only a few years ago I enjoyed my tranquility; now I am so disturbed by the outer world and by human quality in general that I want to put things right, as though I still owed a debt to life. I must calm down. I am far too frail to indulge in moral fervor. #Quote by Florida Scott-Maxwell
Puzzles quotes by James Joyce

Puzzles quotes by Mikaela Shiffrin
#155. It's like a puzzle or a painting or music. When I ski, it's like a song. I can hear the rhythm in my head, and when I start to ski that rhythm and I start to really link my turns together, all of a sudden there's so much flow and power that I just can't help but feel amazing. That's where the joy comes from. #Quote by Mikaela Shiffrin

Puzzles quotes by Eric L. Haney
#158. The world of counterterrorism is like that old jigsaw puzzle in the back of the closet: Its many missing pieces and extra parts jumbled in from other puzzles make it almost impossible to assemble. But in Ghost, Fred Burton manages to join together enough pieces to give us a discerning look at that world. This is a story, told in human terms, that will help make sense of the great puzzle of our times. #Quote by Eric L. Haney
Puzzles quotes by Sybille Bedford

Puzzles quotes by Hermann Hesse
#161. Mathematics, as far as he was concerned, was a Sphinx charged with deceitful puzzles whose cold malicious gaze transfixed her victims, and he gave the monster a wide berth. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Puzzles quotes by Thomas S. Kuhn
#162. In these and other respects a discussion of puzzles and rules illuminates the nature of normal scientific practice. Yet, in another way, that illumination may be significantly misleading. Though there obviously are rules to which all the practitioners of a scientific specialty adhere at a given time, those rules may not by themselves specify all that the practice of those specialists has in common. #Quote by Thomas S. Kuhn
Puzzles quotes by Richard Schiff

Puzzles quotes by Niklaus Wirth
#169. Professors typically spend their time in meetings about planning, policy, proposals, fund-raising, consulting, interviewing, traveling, and so forth, but spend relatively little time at their drawing boards. As a result, they lose touch with the substance of their rapidly developing subject. They lose the ability to design; they lose sight of what is essential; and they resign themselves to teach academically challenging puzzles. #Quote by Niklaus Wirth

#172. Mazie, Mazie." Untangling his long frame, Trent pressed away from the window. "I find you a puzzle. Unfortunately, I never did enjoy puzzles much as a child. There was always the mess of missing pieces and the temptation to force parts where they did not fit. I much prefer the whole picture, unclouded and unveiled. #Quote by Leigh LaValle
Puzzles quotes by Veronica Roth
#173. I used to think that cruelty required malice, but that is not true. Jeanine has no reason to act out of malice. But she is cruel because she doesn't care what she does, as long as it fascinates her. I may as well be a puzzle or a broken machine she wants to fix. She will break open my skull just to see the inner workings of my brain; I will die here, and that will be the merciful thing. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Puzzles quotes by Timothy Ferriss

Puzzles quotes by Louise Erdrich
#175. Leave the dishes.
Let the celery rot in the bottom drawer of the refrigerator
and an earthen scum harden on the kitchen floor.
Leave the black crumbs in the bottom of the toaster.
Throw the cracked bowl out and don't patch the cup.
Don't patch anything. Don't mend. Buy safety pins.
Don't even sew on a button.
Let the wind have its way, then the earth
that invades as dust and then the dead
foaming up in gray rolls underneath the couch.
Talk to them. Tell them they are welcome.
Don't keep all the pieces of the puzzles
or the doll's tiny shoes in pairs, don't worry
who uses whose toothbrush or if anything
matches, at all.
Except one word to another. Or a thought.
Pursue the authentic-decide first
what is authentic,
then go after it with all your heart.
Your heart, that place
you don't even think of cleaning out.
That closet stuffed with savage mementos.
Don't sort the paper clips from screws from saved baby teeth
or worry if we're all eating cereal for dinner
again. Don't answer the telephone, ever,
or weep over anything at all that breaks.
Pink molds will grow within those sealed cartons
in the refrigerator. Accept new forms of life
and talk to the dead
who drift in though the screened windows, who collect
patiently on the tops of food jars and books.
Recycle the mail, don't read it, don't read anything
except what destr #Quote by Louise Erdrich
Puzzles quotes by Davis Bunn
#176. Our gift is to be a series of puzzles. In reading our clues and seeking our answers, we hope and pray you will find a future as well. A morrow filled with reasons to live, and a purpose grand enough to bestow upon you the gift of hope. For you deserve it all, my dear Brian. All the hope a tomorrow worth living can bring. Here, then, is the first clue: From the hope tossed skyward on your beloved's happiest day, in a grand palace made to make a child feel grander still, search for the heart, search for the heart, search for the heart of your beloved. Yours ever, Heather. #Quote by Davis Bunn
Puzzles quotes by Andrea Camilleri
#177. Montalbano sat outside reading a good detective novel by two Swedish authors, husband and wife, in which there wasn't a page without a ferocious and justified attack on social democracy and the government. In his mind, Montalbano dedicated the book to all those who did not deign to read mystery novels because, in their opinion, they were only entertaining puzzles. #Quote by Andrea Camilleri
Puzzles quotes by Betty White

Puzzles quotes by Sonny Sharrock
#179. Sometimes I see players that think, and you can tell they're thinking of the next phrase to play or the next thing to do, the next little cute trick, and that's sad, man, you know. That's not makin' music; that's puttin' together puzzles, you know. Music should flow from you and it should be a force; it should be feeling, all feeling, man. #Quote by Sonny Sharrock

Puzzles quotes by Bryan Burrough
#186. By mid-summer only Ma Barker remained in Chicago, lost in her jigsaw puzzles. Karpis drove over to visit her one weekend and found she was doing surprisingly well. He and Dock took her to see a movie. To their horror, the film was preceded by a newsreel warning moviegoers to be on the lookout for Dillinger, Nelson, Pretty Boy Floyd, Karpis, and the Barkers. Karpis scrunched low in his seat as their pictures flashed on the screen. "One of these men may be sitting next to you," the announcer said. Karpis pulled his hat low over his forehead. #Quote by Bryan Burrough

Puzzles quotes by Gore Vidal

Puzzles quotes by Daniel H. Pink
#189. INTRODUCTION The Puzzling Puzzles of Harry Harlow and Edward Deci In the middle of the last century, two young scientists conducted experiments that should have changed the world - but did not. Harry F. Harlow was a professor of psychology at the University of Wisconsin who, in the 1940s, established one of the world's first laboratories for studying primate behavior. One day in 1949, Harlow and two colleagues gathered eight rhesus monkeys for a two-week experiment on learning. The researchers devised a simple mechanical puzzle like the one pictured on the next page. Solving it required three steps: pull out the vertical pin, undo the hook, and lift the hinged cover. Pretty easy for you and me, far more challenging for a thirteen-pound #Quote by Daniel H. Pink

Puzzles quotes by Margaret Mahy
#191. Somewhere int he flesh of the earth the dreadful earthquake shuddered, the tide walked to and fro on the leash of the moon, rainbows formed, winds swept the sky like giant brooms piling up clouds before them, clouds which writhed into different shapes, melted into rain or darkened, bruised themselves against an unseen antagonist and went on their way, laced with forking rivers of lightning, complete with white electric tributaries. Out of this infinite vision an infinity of details could be drawn, but Sonny had settled on one, and from the endless series a particular beach was chosen and began to form around Laura - a beach of iron-dark sand and shells like frail stars, and a wonderful wide sea that stretched, neither green nor blue, but inked by the approach of night into violet and black, wrinkling with its own salty puzzles, right out to a distant, pure horizon. #Quote by Margaret Mahy

Puzzles quotes by Tammara Webber
#195. I used to think of two people in love like that. Like puzzle pieces, fitting together. But it's not like that at all. Love pulls a part of you out, and it pulls a part of him - like taffy, stretching but not separating. The tendrils of each one wrap around the other, until they meld together. One, but not quite. Separate, but not quite. #Quote by Tammara Webber
Puzzles quotes by Mia Wasikowska

Puzzles quotes by Georges Perec
#200. From this, one can make a deduction which is quite certainly the ultimate truth of jigsaw puzzles: despite appearances, puzzling is not a solitary game: every move the puzzler makes, the puzzlemaker has made before; every piece the puzzler picks up, and picks up again, and studies and strokes, every combination he tries, and tries a second time, every blunder and every insight, each hope and each discouragement have all been designed, calculated, and decided by the other. #Quote by Georges Perec
