Reactions quotes by Stephanie Dowrick
#1. Restraint offers a space between intention and action and the opportunity to protect others from actions or reactions that should exist only in your imagination #Quote by Stephanie Dowrick
Reactions quotes by Verne Troyer
#2. I think it was a good challenge for me to get my reactions across without being able to speak. #Quote by Verne Troyer
Reactions quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#3. The simplest and the most incredible thing in the world had come true again: two people speaking to each other, each for himself; and sounds, called words, shaped the same images and feelings in that palpitating mass behind the skull, and out of meaningless vibrations of the vocal chords and their unexplainable reactions in the viscous gray convolutions, skies suddenly grew again in which were mirrored clouds, brooks, past times, growth and decay and hard-won wisdom. #Quote by Erich Maria Remarque
Reactions quotes by Paul Brunton
#4. Among the values of meditation is that it carries consciousness down to a deeper level, thus letting man live from his centre, not his surface alone. The result is that the physical sense-reactions do not dominate his outlook wholly, as they do an animal's. Mind begins to rule them. This leads more and more to self-control, self-knowledge, and self-pacification. #Quote by Paul Brunton
Reactions quotes by John Elder Robison
#5. As a logical thinker, I cannot help thinking, based on the evidence, that many people who exhibit dramatic reactions to bad news involving strangers are hypocrites. #Quote by John Elder Robison
Reactions quotes by Anthony Michael Hall
#6. Like any show, I think some episodes are going to be stronger than others, but I think it's a good show that people enjoy and I hear the reactions too. #Quote by Anthony Michael Hall
Reactions quotes by Alain De Botton
#7. Why be seduced by something as small as a front door in another country? Why fall in love with a place because it has trams and its people seldom have curtains in their homes? However absurd the intense reactions provoked by such small (and mute) foreign elements may seem, the pattern is at least familiar from our personal lives. There, too, we may find ourselves anchoring emotions of love on the way a person butters his or her bread, or recoiling at his or her taste in shoes. To condemn ourselves for these minute concerns is to ignore how rich in meaning details may be. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Reactions quotes by Katie McGarry
#8. We were nothing more than actions to reactions - helpless against our own fate. It's true. I react and others pay. #Quote by Katie McGarry
Reactions quotes by K.J. Parker
#9. He was astonished at how calm he found he was. Fear of death had always energised him, making him move far more quickly than his body should have been capable of, accelerating his reactions and his thought process to a quite incredible level. This time, though, he only thought, Oh, and realised that he didn't really care all that much. He could feel his responsibilities, the love of others towards him, the unfulfilled possibilities; they were like a child's hand trying to pull him up, doing its best but simply not strong enough for the job. Above all, there was no blame. I tried to climb a wall, but I couldn't, and there it is. #Quote by K.J. Parker
Reactions quotes by George Santayana
#10. Old age is as forgetful as youth, and more incorrigible; it displays the same inattentiveness to conditions; its memory becomes self-repeating and degenerates into an instinctive reaction, like a bird's chirp. #Quote by George Santayana
Reactions quotes by Ian Hacking
#11. The best reaction to a paradox is to invent a genuinely new and deep idea. #Quote by Ian Hacking
Reactions quotes by Noam Chomsky
#12. One of the most interesting reactions to come out of 1968 was in the first publication of the Trilateral Commission, which believed there was a 'crisis of democracy' from too much participation of the masses. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Reactions quotes by Henry Kissinger
#13. New methods of accessing and communicating information unite regions as never before and project events globally - but in a manner that inhibits reflection, demanding of leaders that they register instantaneous reactions in a form expressible in slogans. Are we facing a period in which forces beyond the restraints of any order determine the future? #Quote by Henry Kissinger
Reactions quotes by Martin Scorsese
#14. If Kubrick had lived to see the opening of his final film, he obviously would have been disappointed by the hostile reactions. But I'm sure that in the end he would have taken it with a grain of salt and moved on. That's the lot of all true visionaries, who don't see the use of working in the same vein as everyone else. Artists like Kubrick have minds expansive and dynamic enough to picture the world in motion, to comprehend not just where its been, but where it's going. #Quote by Martin Scorsese
Reactions quotes by Zig Ziglar
#15. Faith is your reaction to God's ability. #Quote by Zig Ziglar
Reactions quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#16. I still am amazed by the reaction I get from people when I tell them that there was zero immigration in this country from 1924 to 1965. And the reason that people don't know that, A, they just don't know it, it's not reported, it's never been part of history class, history education. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Reactions quotes by Christine A. Courtois
#17. ... every therapist must develop enough personal maturity, clinical wisdom, and capacity for good judgment to effectively and safely conduct psychotherapy, an imperative that is especially important in the treatment of this population. The emotion dysregulation and insecure and disorganized attachment of complex trauma clients elicit strong emotional reactions from others, even those in their support network, including therapists. Reactions can range from sympathy, sorrow, fear, and guilt to frustration, impatience, anger/rage, hostility, and disgust or contempt. #Quote by Christine A. Courtois
Reactions quotes by Louis MacNeice
#18. It is a retrogression when human beings begin to insist on uniform, on one-mindedness, on conditioning their offspring so that all their reactions are automatic. #Quote by Louis MacNeice
Reactions quotes by Charlotte Ross
#19. I think what's so great about TV is I don't know if all these things were planned at first, or if they see the fans' reactions to things. They really do listen to what the fans want, and feel strongly about, and push for, so all these things are happening organically. #Quote by Charlotte Ross
Reactions quotes by Saul Alinsky
#20. The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength. #Quote by Saul Alinsky
Reactions quotes by Kelly Wearstler
#21. I love seeing people's reactions to gifts that I've created from my line, such as my gold horn ring, bottle openers, my 'Fallen' leather jacket and my Slither black and white sweater. #Quote by Kelly Wearstler
Reactions quotes by Esa-Pekka Salonen
#22. You know, in some ways conducting is counter-intuitive. It's like winter driving in Finland - if you skid, the natural reaction is to fight with the wheel and jam on the brakes, which is the quickest way to get killed. What you have to do is let go, and the car will right itself. It's the same when an orchestra loses its ensemble. You have to resist the temptation to semaphore, and let the orchestra find its own way back to the pulse. #Quote by Esa-Pekka Salonen
Reactions quotes by Stephanie Dowrick
#23. What helps most is remembering that such a cry or attack or sly blow is a reflection of that other person's inner state; it is not an omniscient summary of you. Your reaction reflects your own inner state, and that can tell you which aspects of your own inner world are needy of attention. p.291 #Quote by Stephanie Dowrick
Reactions quotes by David Bradley
#24. I'm not exactly watching my back. Most people, there's a twinkle when they admonish me. And I've watched a lot of footage on YouTube of people's reactions to watching me. #Quote by David Bradley
Reactions quotes by David Blaine
#25. When I was about 19, I shot a tape of me doing magic just to people on the streets, and I would edit together all the reactions and I kept pushing this idea, and then ABC came on board and made my first show. #Quote by David Blaine
Reactions quotes by Adolf Von Schell
#26. We know that psychology is tremendously important in war. It is a field unlimited in extent, to which every conscientious soldier should give much time and study. Yet it cannot be learned as one learns mathematics. It must be sensed. Unfortunately we cannot formulate a set of psychological rules; human reactions can never be reduced to an exact science. War is governed by the uncertain and the unknown and the least known factor of all is the human element. #Quote by Adolf Von Schell
Reactions quotes by Nick Lane
#27. This second type of vent is not volcanic, and there's no magma involved. Instead, it depends on the reaction of these freshly exposed rocks with seawater. Water doesn't just percolate into such rocks: it physically reacts with them; it is incorporated into them, altering their structure to form hydroxide minerals like serpentine (named after its resemblance to the mottled green scales of a serpent). The reaction with seawater expands the rock, causing it to crack and fracture, which in turn permits further seawater to penetrate, perpetuating the process. The scale of such reactions is astonishing. The volume of water bound into rock in this way is believed to equal the volume of the oceans themselves. As #Quote by Nick Lane
Reactions quotes by Cesare Pavese
#28. A decision, an action, are infallible omens of what we shall do another time, not for any vague, mystic, astrological reason but because they result from an automatic reaction that will repeat itself. #Quote by Cesare Pavese
Reactions quotes by Jeffrey Gitomer
#29. Change is not a four letter word ... but often your reaction to it is! #Quote by Jeffrey Gitomer
Reactions quotes by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
#30. The natural state of mammals is to be somewhat on guard. However, in order to feel emotionally close to another human being, our defensive system must temporarily shut down. In order to play, mate, and nurture our young, the brain needs to turn off its natural vigilance . . . Many traumatized individuals are too hypervigilant to enjoy the ordinary pleasures that life has to offer, while others are too numb to absorb new experiences - or to be alert to signs of real danger . . . Many people feel safe as long as they can limit their social contact to superficial conversations, but actual physical contact can trigger intense reactions. However … achieving any sort of deep intimacy - a close embrace, sleeping with a mate, and sex - requires allowing oneself to experience immobilization without fear. It is especially challenging for traumatized people to discern when they are actually safe and to be able to activate their defenses when they are in danger. This requires having experiences that can restore the sense of physical safety. #Quote by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
Reactions quotes by Austin Bradford Hill
#31. The statistical method is required in the interpretation of figures which are at the mercy of numerous influences, and its object is to determine whether individual influences can be isolated and their effects measured. The essence of the method lies in the determination that we are really comparing like with like, and that we have not overlooked a relevant factor which is present in Group A and absent from Group B. The variability of human beings in their illnesses and in their reactions to them is a fundamental reason for the planned clinical trial and not against it. #Quote by Austin Bradford Hill
Reactions quotes by Harold Bloom
#32. If I were to sum up the negative reactions to my work, I think there are two primary causes: one is that if there is discourse about anxiety it is necessarily going to induce anxiety. It will represent a return of the repressed for a great many people. #Quote by Harold Bloom
Reactions quotes by Hope Jahren
#33. We don't know exactly how this memory works. We think it is the sum total of several complex biochemical reactions and interactions. Researchers also don't know exactly how the human memory works. They think it is the sum total of several complex biochemical reactions and interactions. The #Quote by Hope Jahren
Reactions quotes by Lori Gottlieb
#34. Therapy elicits odd reactions because, in a way, it's like pornography. Both involve a kind of nudity. Both have the potential to thrill. And both have millions of users, most of whom keep their use private. #Quote by Lori Gottlieb
Reactions quotes by E.L. James
#35. But Master is happy. I have seen him. He laughs and smiles. These reactions are rare ... very rare for him. #Quote by E.L. James
Reactions quotes by Siva Vaidhyanathan
#36. Extremism will generate both positive and negative reactions, or "engagements." Facebook measures engagement by the number of clicks, "likes," shares, and comments. This design feature - or flaw, if you care about the quality of knowledge and debate - ensures that the most inflammatory material will travel the farthest and the fastest. Sober, measured accounts of the world have no chance on Facebook. And when Facebook dominates our sense of the world and our social circles, we all potentially become carriers of extremist nonsense #Quote by Siva Vaidhyanathan
Reactions quotes by Aberjhani
#37. The job facing American voters ... in the days and years to come is to determine which hearts, minds and souls command those qualities best suited to unify a country rather than further divide it, to heal the wounds of a nation as opposed to aggravate its injuries, and to secure for the next generation a legacy of choices based on informed awareness rather than one of reactions based on unknowing fear. #Quote by Aberjhani
Reactions quotes by Erik Larson
#38. As a homeopath, he knew the powers not just of ordinary opiates but also of poisons such as aconite, from the root of the plant monkshood; atropine, from belladonna (or deadly nightshade); and rhus toxin from poison ivy. In large doses each could prove fatal, but when administered in tiny amounts, typically in combination with other agents, such compounds could produce a useful palette of physical reactions that mimicked the symptoms of known diseases. #Quote by Erik Larson
Reactions quotes by Stephen King
#39. Those are the only to verbalizations usually that we make in movies - either to scream or to laugh - because those two reactions are rather close. Most things we laugh at are things that are really horrible, when you think about them. It's funny and you don't scream, as long as it's not you. If it's somebody else you can laugh. #Quote by Stephen King
Reactions quotes by Paul Scott
#40. Speak what is in your mind,' Pandit Baba commanded. What insolence, Ahmed thought. There are two categories of things in my mind, he should say, the stuff people like you have fed into it and my own reactions to that stuff. The result is cancellation, so I have nothing in my mind. #Quote by Paul Scott
Reactions quotes by Christine A. Courtois
#41. The act of consciously and purposefully paying attention to symptoms and their antecedents and consequences makes the symptoms more an objective target for thoughtful observation than an intolerable source of subjective anxiety, dysphoria, and frustration. In ACT, the act of accepting the symptoms as an expectable feature of a disorder or illness, has been shown to be associated with relief rather than increased distress (Hayes et al., 2006). From a traumatic stress perspective, any symptom can be reframed as an understandable, albeit unpleasant and difficult to cope with, reaction or survival skill (Ford, 2009b, 2009c). In this way, monitoring symptoms and their environmental or experiential/body state "triggers" can enhance client's willingness and ability to reflectively observe them without feeling overwhelmed, terrified, or powerless. This is not only beneficial for personal and life stabilization but is also essential to the successful processing of traumatic events and reactions that occur in the next phase of therapy (Ford & Russo, 2006). #Quote by Christine A. Courtois
Reactions quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#42. Accept your parents' behavior with compassion, without needing to react to it, that is to say, without personalizing it. Be aware also of your own unconscious assumptions or expectations that lie behind your old, habitual reactions to them. 'My parents should approve of what I do. They should understand me and accept me for who I am.' Really? Why should they? The fact is they don't because they can't. Their evolving consciousness hasn't made the quantum leap to the level of awareness yet. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Reactions quotes by Andrew Weil
#43. The underlying idea is that you can prevent disease by balancing your body's pH ... None of these claims are true. Furthermore, your body needs absolutely no help in adjusting its pH. Normally, the pH of blood and most body fluids is near seven, which is close to neutral. This is under very tight biological control because all of the chemical reactions that maintain life depend on it. Unless you have serious respiratory or kidney problems, body pH will remain in balance no matter what you eat or drink. #Quote by Andrew Weil
Reactions quotes by Krishna Udayasankar
#44. There are no such things in life as compromises without resentment, only delayed reactions. #Quote by Krishna Udayasankar
Reactions quotes by Simon Cowell
#45. Well, it's basically the viewers who determine it. We - well, basically the producers and myself chose the people we felt had the best reaction, you know, through the press, the Internet, the people we thought deserved a second chance. And they've chosen a winner, I believe. #Quote by Simon Cowell
Reactions quotes by Hilary Duff
#46. I took a cinnamon roll and waved it under her nose.
"Mmmm," she said, her eyes still closed. I waved it around some more, totally amused that I was messing with her dreams.
"AAAH!" I screamed as Rayna's head zipped forward and she chomped down on the roll.
"Excellent!" she said, sitting up. "Thanks!"
"Rayna! You almost bit my finger off!"
"You asked for it." She took another bite. "Mmmm. Oh my God, this is totally better than sex." She looked at me pointedly. "Would you agree?"
"Whoa, subtle much?"
"You don't have to talk about it if you don't want to." She knew it was the right thing to say, but her eyes were so clearly dying to know that I laughed out loud. I actually wanted to talk about it now, just to keep it alive in my head.
I told her everything. Watching her reactions was like watching a silent movie: Her face registered every detail in IMAX-size emotions.
"Am I allowed to have a moment of "ew" for my poor deflowered passenger seat?" she asked when I was finished.
I winced and buried my head in my hands. "Um…yeah."
"Thank you." She paused a moment, then grinned and burst out, "Clea, oh my God!!"
"I know. I know."
"So what happens now?"
"We go to Tokyo, just like we'd planned."
"What about Ben?" she asked. "Are you going to tell Ben?"
I looked at her like she was crazy.
"Hello! Not like everything you told me, just-are you going to let him know you're together?"
"I don't know," I #Quote by Hilary Duff
Reactions quotes by Elizabeth F. Howell
#47. Patients with complex trauma may at times develop extreme reactions to something the therapist has said or not said, done or not done. It is wise to anticipate this in advance, and perhaps to note this anticipation in initial communications with the patient. For example, one may say something like, "It is likely in our work together, there will be a time or times when you will feel angry with me, disappointed with me, or that I have failed you. We should except this and not be surprised if and when it happens, which it probably will." It is also vital to emphasize to the patient that despite the diagnosis and experience of dividedness, the whole person is responsible and will be held responsible for the acts of any part. p174 #Quote by Elizabeth F. Howell
Reactions quotes by Meghan Daum
#48. I started my professional career before the blogosphere existed in any sort of meaningful way. I think that my approach as a writer was certainly freer because I wasn't worried, I didn't have commenters on me right from the get-go. I didn't have this instant-reaction culture that young writers have to deal with now. I had different things - I was listed in the phone book and people would look me up and call me and yell at me, but that was about as bad as it got. #Quote by Meghan Daum
Reactions quotes by Jonathan Groff
#49. In a play, you can adjust your performance to audience reaction, but in a film it's like you're trapped in a bad dream watching yourself act and you're in the audience #Quote by Jonathan Groff
Reactions quotes by Wes Anderson
#50. Anytime I make a movie, I really have absolutely no idea how it's going to go over. I've had the whole range of different kinds of reactions. #Quote by Wes Anderson
Reactions quotes by Terryl L. Givens
#51. The secret of happiness is this: let your interests be as wide as possible," he said. He then made his point with the simple example of a taste for strawberries. "There is no abstract and impersonal proof either that strawberries are good or that they are not good. To the man who likes them they are good, to the man who dislikes them they are not. But the man who likes them has a pleasure which the other does not have; to that extent his life is more enjoyable and he is better adapted to the world in which both must live ... The more things a man is interested in, the more opportunities of happiness he has. #Quote by Terryl L. Givens
Reactions quotes by Peter Hoeg Miss Smilla's Feeling For Snow
#52. When people talk about how fast children forget, how fast they forgive, how sensitive they are, I let it go in one ear and out the other. Children can remember and forget and totally freeze to death the people they don't like. #Quote by Peter Hoeg Miss Smilla's Feeling For Snow
Reactions quotes by Trevor Horn
#53. When we started making electronic music I imagined that the reaction we got from the rock musicians must have been similar to the one the beat groups got from people like my dad. #Quote by Trevor Horn
Reactions quotes by Paul Tillich
#54. And so we use them for a kind of pleasure which can be called "fun." But it is not the creative kind of fun often connected with play; it is, rather, a shallow, distracting, greedy way of "having fun." And it is not by chance that it is that type of fun which can easily be commercialized, for it is dependent on calculable reactions, without passion, without risk, without love. Of all the dangers that threaten our civilization, this is one of the most dangerous ones: the escape from one's emptiness through a "fun" which makes joy impossible. #Quote by Paul Tillich
Reactions quotes by Miguel Angel Ruiz
#55. Your reactions are the key to having a wonderful life. #Quote by Miguel Angel Ruiz
Reactions quotes by Letty Cottin Pogrebin
#56. Compared to other parents, remarried parents seem more desirous of their child's approval, more alert to the child's emotional state, and more sensitive in their parent-child relations. Perhaps this is the result of heightened empathy for the child's suffering, perhaps it is a guilt reaction; in either case, it gives the child a potent weapon
the power to disrupt the new household and come between parent and the new spouse. #Quote by Letty Cottin Pogrebin
Reactions quotes by Renata Tebaldi
#57. I know that my voice has entered into the hearts of many people and has caused beautiful reactions. Some, hearing me sing, have become more religious; some who were ill felt joy; friends, while in hospital, played my tapes whenever they felt ill; they all said that my voice gave them the strength needed to stand the pain. Therefore, how can I not be thankful for this great gift? #Quote by Renata Tebaldi
Reactions quotes by Steve Krug
#58. The more you watch users carefully and listen to them articulate their intentions, motivations, and thought processes, the more you realize that their individual reactions to Web pages are based on so many variables that attempts to describe users in terms of one-dimensional likes and dislikes are futile and counter-productive. Good design, on the other hand, takes this complexity into account. #Quote by Steve Krug
Reactions quotes by Nicholas Carr
#59. The mounting evidence of an erosion of skills, a dulling of perceptions, and a slowing of reactions should give us all pause. As we begin to live our lives inside glass cockpits, we seem fated to discover what pilots already know: a glass cockpit can also be a glass cage. #Quote by Nicholas Carr
Reactions quotes by Pema Chodron
#60. The more we witness our emotional reactions and understand how they work, the easier it is to refrain. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Reactions quotes by Ansel Adams
#61. The quality of place, the reaction to immediate contact with earth and growing things that have a fugal relationship with mountains and sky, is essential to the integrity of our existence on this planet. #Quote by Ansel Adams
Reactions quotes by Carly Rae Jepsen
#62. I think in general, lines are a bad idea. Especially if they sound like lines. Everyone's immediate reaction is to just kind of cringe a little bit. #Quote by Carly Rae Jepsen
Reactions quotes by Daniel Goleman
#63. Our emotional mind will harness the rational mind to its purposes, for our feelings and reactions
justifying them in terms of the present moment, without realizing the influence of our emotional memory. #Quote by Daniel Goleman
Reactions quotes by Tiffanie DeBartolo
#64. Choice betrays character," I said.
"That's not true." Loring moved his finger along the
sheet as if writing his name in cursive. "Eliza, you can't judge a man solely on his actions. Sometimes actions are nothing more than reactions. #Quote by Tiffanie DeBartolo
Reactions quotes by Sherwood Smith
#65. Until that morning most of the journey had been made in silence, our stops to eat and change horses--again, Renselaeus beneficence: all we had to do was mention their name, and the horses were instantly available--too brief for much converse. When we did stop, we were both too tired to talk. But that day the roads were too muddy for fast travel, and Branaric suddenly turned to me and asked for my story, so I gave him a detailed description of my adventures.
I had just reached the episode at the fountain with Debegri, and was grinning at the fluency and point of Bran's curses, when we became aware of horses behind us.
Traffic had been nonexistent all day, which we had expected. No traders had been permitted to go up into Tlanth, well away from Vesingrui, the fortress that the Renselaeus forces supposedly held, so we didn't expect any military traffic, either.
"Sounds like at least one riding," I said, remembering that pattern well. Danger prickled along my nerves, and I wished I had a weapon.
"Something must have happened." Bran sounded unconcerned. "They must need to tell us--"
"Who? What?"
Bran shrugged. "Escort. Shevraeth sent it along to keep us safe. Knew you would refuse, so they've been behind us the whole way."
I was peering through the trees, anger and apprehension warring inside me. Annoyed as I was to be thus circumvented--and to have my reactions so accurately predicted--I realized I'd be well satisfied to find out that the approa #Quote by Sherwood Smith
Reactions quotes by Saffron Burrows
#66. I like working on stage because there's something very immediate about it, that interaction with an audience where you immediately hear their reaction, or feel them, whether they're with you. #Quote by Saffron Burrows
Reactions quotes by Lysa TerKeurst
#67. [Incomplete people] are complicated and sensitive and messy in their reactions #Quote by Lysa TerKeurst
Reactions quotes by Chip Conley
#68. Many people do not distinguish between something that happens to them and their reaction to it. Yet it isn't the event or situation that holds the emotional charge; it's our beliefs that create our response. #Quote by Chip Conley
Reactions quotes by Frank I. Cobb
#69. This is revolution in reaction, as well as in radicalism, and Toryism speaking a jargon of law and order may often be a graver menace to liberty than radicalism bellowing the empty phrases of the soapbox demagogue. #Quote by Frank I. Cobb
Reactions quotes by Colin Wilson
#70. What, in fact, do we know about the peak experience? Well, to begin with, we know one thing that puts us several steps ahead of the most penetrating thinkers of the 19th century: that P.E'.s are not a matter of pure good luck or grace. They don't come and go as they please, leaving 'this dim, vast vale of tears vacant and desolate'. Like rainbows, peak experiences are governed by definite laws. They are 'intentional'.

And that statement suddenly gains in significance when we remember Thorndike's discovery that the effect of positive stimuli is far more powerful and far reaching than that of negative stimuli. His first statement of the law of effect was simply that situations that elicit positive reactions tend to produce continuance of positive reactions, while situations that elicit negative or avoidance reactions tend to produce continuance of these. It was later that he came to realise that positive reactions build-up stronger response patterns than negative ones. In other words, positive responses are more intentional than negative ones.

Which is another way of saying that if you want a positive reaction (or a peak experience), your best chance of obtaining it is by putting yourself into an active, purposive frame of mind. The opposite of the peak experience - sudden depression, fatigue, even the 'panic fear' that swept William James to the edge of insanity - is the outcome of passivity. This cannot be overemphasised. Depression - or neurosis - need #Quote by Colin Wilson
Reactions quotes by J.G. Ballard
#71. He dreamed of ambassadorial limousines crashing into jack-knifing butane tankers, of taxis filled with celebrating children colliding head-on below the bright display windows of deserted supermarkets. He dreamed of alienated brothers and sisters, by chance meeting each other on collision courses on the access roads of petrochemical plants, their unconscious incest made explicit in this colliding metal, in the heamorrhages of their brain tissue flowering beneath the aluminized compression chambers and reactions vessels. #Quote by J.G. Ballard
Reactions quotes by Dave Eggers
#72. She needs a new journal. The one she has is problematic. To get to the present, she needs to page through the past, and when she does, she remembers things, and her new journal entries become, for the most part, reactions to the days she regrets, wants to correct, rewrite. #Quote by Dave Eggers
Reactions quotes by Chris Hadfield
#73. By looking at the difference between perceived danger and actual danger, you can fundamentally change your reaction. #Quote by Chris Hadfield
Reactions quotes by Lisa Kudrow
#74. I do like reality shows, and I watch some of them because they're high drama. It's also just fun to watch people have honest reactions. #Quote by Lisa Kudrow
Reactions quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#75. I'd had more than my fair share of near-death experiences; it wasn't something
you ever really got used to.
It seemed oddly inevitable, though, facing death again. Like I really was marked
for disaster. I'd escaped time and time again, but it kept coming back for me.
Still, this time was so different from the others.
You could run from someone you feared, you could try to fight someone you
hated. All my reactions were geared toward those kinds of killers - the monsters,
the enemies.
When you loved the one who was killing you, it left you no options. How could
you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your
life was all you had to give your beloved, how could you not give it?
If it was someone you truly loved? #Quote by Stephenie Meyer
Reactions quotes by David O. McKay
#76. A man's reaction to his appetites and impulses when they are roused gives the measure of that man's character. In these reactions are revealed the man's power to govern or his forced servility to yield. #Quote by David O. McKay
Reactions quotes by Robert Jastrow
#77. There is a strange ring of feeling and emotion in these reactions [of scientists to evidence that the universe had a sudden beginning]. They come from the heart whereas you would expect the judgments to come from the brain. Why? I think part of the answer is that scientists cannot bear the thought of a natural phenomenon which cannot be explained, even with unlimited time and money. There is a kind of religion in science; it is the religion of a person who believes there is order and harmony in the Universe. Every event can be explained in a rational way as the product of some previous event; every effect must have its cause, there is no First Cause. … This religious faith of the scientist is violated by the discovery that the world had a beginning under conditions in which the known laws of physics are not valid, and as a product of forces or circumstances we cannot discover. When that happens, the scientist has lost control. If he really examined the implications, he would be traumatized. #Quote by Robert Jastrow
Reactions quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#78. You couldn't wait for that; you were there, and everything that is barely measurable ― an emotion that rises by half a degree, the angle of deflection, read off from up close, of a will burdened by an almost infinitesimal weight, the slight cloudiness in a drop of longing, and that barely perceptible color-change in an atom of confidence ― all this you had to determine and record. For it is in such reactions that life existed, our life, which has slipped into us, had drawn back inside us so deeply that it was hardly possible even to make conjectures about it any more. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Reactions quotes by Harold Urey
#79. In general, exchange reactions for the lighter isotopes have equilibrium constants sufficiently different from unity, so that the ratios of concentrations of the isotopes in two compounds which are in equilibrium differ by a few per cents in nearly all cases. #Quote by Harold Urey
Reactions quotes by Seth
#80. As I get older and I see all my friends starting to have children, I see them have different reactions to the material that was probably not of great interest to them when they were younger, because they're re-experiencing it through their kids. #Quote by Seth
Reactions quotes by Melissa Marr
#81. Images cluttered the pages, but one tattoo set her nerves on edge; inky black eyes surrounded by wings likes shadows coalescing.
Mine. The thought, the need,
the reaction was overpowering.
Leslie looked up. "This one." she said. "I need this one.
But the image is more than just tempting art, and it draws her into a world of shadows and desire- into the world of Faerie. #Quote by Melissa Marr
Reactions quotes by Giancarlo Esposito
#82. When you have great acting partners, you hope that your reaction to them is propels you deeper into your own character. #Quote by Giancarlo Esposito
Reactions quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#83. When Russia started to regain some of its strength as an economy and as a state, the West's reaction - perhaps a subconscious one, based on erstwhile fears - was panic. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Reactions quotes by Katie Kacvinsky
#84. I think falling in love should come with a warning label: CAUTION - side effects may include breaking up, accompanied by heartache, severe mood swings, withdrawal from people and life itself, wasted hours obsessing over bitter reflections, a need to destroy something (preferably something expensive that shatters), uncontrollable tear ducts, stress, a loss of appetite (Cheetos and Dr. Pepper exempt), a bleak and narrow outlook on the future, and an overall hatred of everyone and everything (especially all the happy couples you see strolling hand-in-hand, placed on your path only to exacerbate your isolation and misery). All above reactions will be intensified with the consumption of one or more alcoholic beverages. #Quote by Katie Kacvinsky
Reactions quotes by Epictetus
#85. It is not a demonstration of kindness or friendship to the people we care about to join them in indulging in wrongheaded, negative feelings. We do a better service to ourselves and others by remaining detached and avoiding melodramatic reactions. #Quote by Epictetus
Reactions quotes by S.A. David
#86. The polygrapher is not one's friend even if he or she tries to convince one he or she is on one's side. Outright deception! What the polygrapher frequently does is attempt to plant fear in the 'interviewee' by hyping the accuracy of the polygraph machine. For the love of God the polygraph machine isn't God! The more one's afraid that the skeletons in one's closet would be unearthed; the greater one's physiological reactions would turn out. Enough! #Quote by S.A. David
Reactions quotes by Siddhartha Mukherjee
#87. The universe seeks equilibriums; it prefers to disperse energy, disrupt organization, and maximize chaos. Life is designed to combat these forces. We slow down reactions, concentrate matter, and organize chemicals into compartments; we sort laundry on Wednesdays. "It sometimes seems as if curbing entropy is our quixotic purpose in the universe," James Gleick wrote. We live in the loopholes of natural laws, seeking extensions, exceptions and excuses. The laws of nature still mark the outer boundaries of permissibility - but life, in all its idiosyncratic, mad weirdness, flourishes by reading between the lines. #Quote by Siddhartha Mukherjee
Reactions quotes by Jennifer Egan
#88. And Danny got it: she was playing herself. A character: He liked these types because they pretty much told you what reactions they wanted you to have, and they liked Danny because he went ahead and had them. #Quote by Jennifer Egan
Reactions quotes by Marcellin Berthelot
#89. One can, then, conceive the production, by purely mineral means, of all natural hydrocarbons. The intervention of heat, of water, and of alkaline metals - lastly, the tendency of hydrocarbons to unite together to form the more condensed material - suffice to account for the formation of these curious compounds. Moreover, this formation will be continuous because the reactions which started it are renewed incessantly. #Quote by Marcellin Berthelot
Reactions quotes by Sai Baba
#90. Liberation from the enslaving desires of the senses, and the reactions of the mortal mind is the aim and purpose of human life- #Quote by Sai Baba
Reactions quotes by Julia Phillips
#91. You believe that you keep yourself safe, she thought. You lock up your mind and guard your reactions so nobody, not an interrogator or a parent or a friend, will break in. You earn a graduate degree and a good position. You keep your savings in foreign currency and you pay your bills on time. When your colleagues ask you about your home life, you don't answer. You work harder. You exercise. Your clothing flatters. You keep the edge of your affection sharp, a knife, so that those near you know how to handle it carefully. You think you established some protection and then you discover that you endangered yourself to everyone you ever met. #Quote by Julia Phillips
Reactions quotes by George Smoot
#92. With something like Chernobyl, the public reaction was 'Oh, my God, science has really done wrong.' #Quote by George Smoot
Reactions quotes by Sister Parish
#93. When someone asks me to help create a room my first reaction, if I do not already know the person, is to try to feel out what he or she really wants the room to be and to understand, if possible, what "memory," old or new, has brought this idea about. #Quote by Sister Parish
Reactions quotes by Kresley Cole
#94. I couldn't feel guilty any longer for misdeeds committed by another incarnation. I wouldn't. "I'm sorry for your past, Aric. I wish it had been different. I wish I had been. But I refuse to keep paying for what I did in past games.""Do you, then?"
"In our first meeting, you skewered me with your sword. In other words: you started it. You didn't ask me to marry you, just ordered it. I played the hand I was dealt."
"I take your point."
"Let's begin anew, Empress." (He expects her to 'forgive/forget' for him but not Jack?) "The mortal can't provide for you like I can. I offer you a home. Defensive, I said, "Jack plans to rebuild Haven House for me."
Anger flashed across Aric's face. He schooled his reactions as quickly as he did everything else, leaving his emotions to seethe beneath the surface. "If you desire something, all you have to do is tell me. It will shortly be yours. You'll see soon enough." (Bribery for her to favor him?)
What if Aric could straight-up end the game? Blow up the machine?
"Deveaux will never understand you as I do. As only another Arcana can." "Maybe not. But we have other ties." I thought of the ribbon he'd kept all this time, the one now in my pocket.
"As do we. We are wed." (after Aric ordered her to do so.) "I think of you as mine.
"When I recognized that you weren't over your infatuation with the mortal, I might have been . . . testing you." He'd tested me the other night as well! "What if I'd surrendered?" #Quote by Kresley Cole
Reactions quotes by Daniel Coyle
#95. This is a different way of thinking about human beings," Pentland says. "Individuals aren't really individuals. They're more like musicians in a jazz quartet, forming a web of unconscious actions and reactions to complement others in the group. You don't look at the informational content of the messages; you look at patterns that show how the message is being sent. Those patterns contain many signals that tell us about the relationship and what's really going on beneath the surface. #Quote by Daniel Coyle
Reactions quotes by Ron Kurtz
#96. Hakomi is a path taken by those who work to go beyond the half remembered hurts and failed beliefs that linger unexamined in the mind and body, hurts that act through barely conscious habits and reactions. This work is a part of that heroic labor, a cousin to sitting meditation, to singing bowls and chanting monks. #Quote by Ron Kurtz
Reactions quotes by Jeff Sessions
#97. The Republican Party, in many ways, grew up as a reaction to that [ segregation], and a lot of people have misunderstood that. #Quote by Jeff Sessions
Reactions quotes by Everett Ferguson
#98. One of the reactions to Jesus was the confession, first voiced by the leader of the Twelve, Peter, that "You are the Messiah" (Mark 8:29), the eagerly awaited "anointed of the Lord" who would bring deliverance to the Jewish people. It was a confession welcomed by many, doubted by others, and feared by still others in positions of power. Jesus' popularity provoked jealousy and opposition from some Pharisees and a range of sentiments from uneasiness to profound disturbance among the political leaders. #Quote by Everett Ferguson
Reactions quotes by H.E. Davey
#99. By means of personal experimentation and observation, we can discover certain simple and universal truths. The mind moves the body, and the body follows the mind. Logically then, negative thought patterns harm not only the mind but also the body. What we actually do builds up to affect the subconscious mind and in turn affects the conscious mind and all reactions. #Quote by H.E. Davey
Reactions quotes by Elizabeth Lesser
#100. I hope we have learned throughout centuries of revolution and reaction that it's really a shift in consciousness that we need. And I think there is a shift in consciousness among our human species. I think the human species is evolving, spiritually. #Quote by Elizabeth Lesser
Reactions quotes by David Henrie
#101. When I was young and it was someone's birthday, I didn't have the money to buy nice presents so I would take my mom's camera and make a movie parody for whoever's birthday it was. When I'd show it them, they'd die laughing. That reaction was a high for me, and I loved that feeling. #Quote by David Henrie
Reactions quotes by Andre Derain
#102. It was the era of photography. This may have influenced us, and played a part in our reaction against anything resembling a snapshot of life. (On the year 1905) #Quote by Andre Derain
Reactions quotes by Jason Reitman
#103. Comedy and horror are cousins; they're related. They both come from storytellers who want to specifically affect the audience and elicit specific reactions during the movie. #Quote by Jason Reitman
Reactions quotes by Alex Kendrick
#104. Love is hard to offend and quick to forgive. How easily do you get irritated and offended? Some people live by the motto, "Never pass up an opportunity to get upset with your spouse." When something goes wrong, they quickly take full advantage of it by expressing how hurt or frustrated they are. But this is the opposite reaction of love. #Quote by Alex Kendrick
Reactions quotes by Marianne Williamson
#105. By softening our attitudes, practicing mercy and compassion, we transform our lives by transforming other people's experience of us. Send love before you when you enter a room, and people will subconsciously feel it; they'll be prone to show greater kindness in return. That's how love makes things work better in our lives; it realigns the reactions of people and things around us. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Reactions quotes by Meir Kahane
#106. The Jewish nation is indeed, the heart of the world and there is no reason for the existence of empires, kings, rulers, masses or systems aside from their reaction to the Jewish people. #Quote by Meir Kahane
Reactions quotes by Joey Lawsin
#107. The reactions of the many should not affect the actions of the few. #Quote by Joey Lawsin
Reactions quotes by Max Scheler
#108. The precepts "Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, bless them that curse you" ... are born from the Gospel's profound spirit of individualism, which refuses to let one's own actions and conduct depend in any way on somebody else's acts. The Christian refuses to let his acts be mere reactions - such conduct would lower him to the level of his enemy. The act is to grow organically from the person, "as the fruit from the tree." ... What the Gospel demands is not a reaction which is the reverse of the natural reaction, as if it said: "Because he strikes you on the cheek, tend the other" - but a rejection of all reactive activity, of any participation in common and average ways of acting and standards of judgment. #Quote by Max Scheler
Reactions quotes by Kay Redfield Jamison
#109. Moods are such an essential part of the substance of life, of one's notion of oneself, that even psychotic extremes in mood and behavior somehow can be seen as temporary, even understandable, reactions to what life has dealt. #Quote by Kay Redfield Jamison
Reactions quotes by Tariq Ramadan
#110. Fear and its accompanying emotional reactions have become part of the public mindset. Such reactions, while often legitimate, are also being exploited with increasing frequency for political ends. #Quote by Tariq Ramadan
Reactions quotes by Laini Taylor
#111. She experienced a queer collision of reactions these days. Karou's were foremost, and the most immediate, but Madrigal's were hers, too: her two selves, coming together with a strange kind of vibration. It's wasn't disharmony, exactly. #Quote by Laini Taylor
Reactions quotes by Hannah Arendt
#112. Our political concepts, according to which we have to assume responsibility for all public affairs within our reach regardless of personal "guilt", because we are held responsible as citizens for everything that our government does in the name of the country, may lead us into an intolerable situation of global responsibility. The solidarity of mankind may well turn out to be an unbearable burden, and it is not surprising that the common reactions to it are political apathy, isolationist nationalism, or desperate rebellion against all powers that be rather than enthusiasm or a desire for a revival of humanism. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Reactions quotes by Frederick Gowland Hopkins
#113. My main thesis will be that in the study of the intermediate processes of metabolism we have to deal not with complex substances which elude ordinary chemical methods, but with the simple substances undergoing comprehensible reactions ... I intend also to emphasise the fact that it is not alone with the separation and identification of products from the animal that our present studies deal; but with their reactions in the body; with the dynamic side of biochemical phenomena. #Quote by Frederick Gowland Hopkins
Reactions quotes by David Adjaye
#114. The houses [my first project in London] were reactions to the condition of the city and my frustrations with the norms that were being played out. In a way they were slightly subconscious but reactions to that condition and a way to posit new possibilities within certain pervasive norms. #Quote by David Adjaye
Reactions quotes by John Howard Griffin
#115. ...[C]ulture-learned behavior patterns so deeply engrained they produce unconscious involuntary reactions-is a prison. #Quote by John Howard Griffin
Reactions quotes by Laurie Halse Anderson
#116. I just thought of a great theory that explains everything. When I went to that party, I was abducted by aliens. They have created a fake Earth and fake high school to study me and my reactions. This certainly explains cafeteria food. #Quote by Laurie Halse Anderson
Reactions quotes by Roy Masters
#117. Non-reaction is a language that everyone understands. It communicates to the offender and causes him to be upset with the upset that he intended for you. #Quote by Roy Masters
Reactions quotes by Simon Sinek
#118. Emails get reactions. Phone calls start conversations. #Quote by Simon Sinek
Reactions quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#119. That I wasn't mad at you. Can't you see that Bella?" He was suddenly intense, all trace of teasing gone. "Don't you understand?"
"See what?" I demanded, confused by his sudden mood swing as much as his words.
"I'm never angry with you - how could it be? Brave, trusting . . . warm as you are."
"Then why?" I whispered, remembering the black moods that pulled him away from me, that I'd always interpreted as well-justified frustration - frustration at my weakness, my slowness, my unruly human reactions . . .
He put his hands carefully on both side of my face. "I infuriate myself," he said gently. "The way I can't seem to keep from putting you in danger. My very existence puts you at risk. Sometimes I truly hate myself. I should be stronger, I should be able to-"
I placed my hand over his mouth. "Don't."
He took my hand, moving it from his lips, but holding it to his face.
"I love you," he said. "It's a poor excuse for what I'm doing, but it's still true."
It was the first time he'd said he loved me - in so many words. He might not realize it, but I certainly did. #Quote by Stephenie Meyer

#120. The magnitude of our relationship with others depends on the lattitude of our actions ... quote for today #Quote by Oladosu Feyikogbon
Reactions quotes by Ashley Newell
#121. Zac dangled his legs off the edge of the building, hanging onto every word I said as though I were some old time bard telling an epic war tale. I tried to be as detailed as possible, and I knew that I was doing a good job when he'd lean back and shut his eyes. He'd breathe slowly and watch the pictures that I painted for him with my words. He'd smile, not a cunning toothy one, but a sincere smile that comes only from being truly happy. I'd sit across from him and just watch his reactions. We could be up there for hours. I would see the sunset across his face and be as captivated with his skin's changing colours as he was with my everyday stories. That's when I learned to dislike winters. #Quote by Ashley Newell
Reactions quotes by Raphael Zernoff
#122. A positive response to any situation is the key to the feeling of well-being. The more we practice it the easier it becomes.
Gradually all automatic reactions are being replaced by a conscious response.
When we know we are self-empowered, we take responsibility for our emotions.
It is knowing that we have the ability to respond in a way we prefer. #Quote by Raphael Zernoff
Reactions quotes by Rick Riordan
#123. Annabeth caught Piper's eye. She asked a silent question: What's your feeling?
Piper still wasn't used to that – the way Annabeth looked to her for advice now. Ever since Sparta, they'd learned that they could tackle problems together from two different sides. Annabeth saw the logical thing, the tactical move. Piper had gut reactions that were anything but logical. Together, they either solved the problem twice as fast, or they hopelessly confused each other. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Reactions quotes by Carolyn Dean
#124. Dr. Norman Shealy found while researching magnesium oil that magnesium applied to the skin on a regular basis naturally enhances the level of a vitally important hormone, DHEA. DHEA is normally produced in the adrenal glands, but production slows down as we age. Apparently as magnesium is absorbed through the skin and the underlying fatty tissues of the body it sets off many chain reactions, one of which ends in the production of DHEA. Increasing DHEA levels by taking supplements of the hormone is recommended by some antiaging specialists, but others caution about side effects. To increase it naturally by improving your magnesium balance may be a safe way to turn back the clock. #Quote by Carolyn Dean
Reactions quotes by Dave Sim
#125. Leftist reactions are always histrionic. #Quote by Dave Sim
Reactions quotes by David Bezmozgis
#126. I think every book is a reaction to everything you're written before, and most immediately to the book you wrote just before. #Quote by David Bezmozgis
Reactions quotes by Del Close
#127. The truth is funny. Honest discovery, observation, and reaction is better than contrived invention. #Quote by Del Close
Reactions quotes by Steven Pinker
#128. The idea that boys want to sleep with their mothers strikes most men as the silliest thing they have ever heard. Obviously, it did not seem so to Freud, who wrote that as a boy he once had an erotic reaction to watching his mother dressing. But Freud had a wet-nurse, and may not have experienced the early intimacy that would have tipped off his perceptual system that Mrs. Freud was his mother. The Westermarck theory has out-Freuded Freud. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Reactions quotes by Ira Glass
#129. Any story hits you harder if the person delivering it doesn't sound like some news robot but in fact sounds like a real person having the reactions a real person would. #Quote by Ira Glass
Reactions quotes by N.R. Walker
#130. I remembered when I'd told my family I was moving to Belfast, their reactions were the same. "IRELAND?" I'd laughed. "Uh, no. Belfast, Maine. It's a twelve month position. #Quote by N.R. Walker
Reactions quotes by Tony Attwood
#131. When the anger is intense, the person with Asperger's syndrome may be in a 'blind rage' and unable to see the signals indicating that it would be appropriate to stop. Feelings of anger can also be in response in situations where we would expect other emotions. I have noted that sadness may be expressed as anger. #Quote by Tony Attwood
Reactions quotes by Frederick Lenz
#132. There are physical karmas. They are reactions and results from actions. But those are bound to a particular lifetime. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Reactions quotes by Timothy Keller
#133. Marriage is the Mack truck driving through your life, revealing your flaws and humbling your reactions. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Reactions quotes by Leslye Walton
#134. To put it simply, my mother worried. She worried about our neighbors' reactions. Would they break me with their disparaging glances, their cruel intolerance? She worried I was just like every other teenage girl, all tender heart and fragile ego. She worried I was more myth and figment than flesh and blood. She worried about my calcium levels, my protein levels, even my reading levels. She worried she couldn't protect me from all of the things that had hurt her: loss and fear, pain and love. Most especially from love. #Quote by Leslye Walton
Reactions quotes by Roger Ebert
#135. In my reviews, I feel it's good to make it clear that I'm not proposing objective truth, but subjective reactions; a review should reflect the immediate experience. #Quote by Roger Ebert
Reactions quotes by Cus D'Amato
#136. Every fighter that ever lived had fear. A boy comes to me and tells me that he's not afraid, if I believed him I'd say he's a liar or there's something wrong with him. I'd send him to a doctor to find out what the hell's the matter with him, because this is not a normal reaction. The fighter that's gone into the ring and hasn't experienced fear is either a liar or a psychopath ... #Quote by Cus D'Amato
Reactions quotes by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
#137. The global nature of the religious knowledge of a learned Muslim sitting in Isfahan in the fourteenth century was very different from that of a scholastic thinker in Paris or Bologna of the same period. On the basis of the Quranic doctrine of religious universality and the vast historical experiences of a global nature, Islamic civilization developed a cosmopolitan and worldwide religious perspective unmatched before the modern period in any other religion. This global vision is still part and parcel of the worldview of traditional Muslims, of those who have not abandoned their universal vision as a result of the onslaught of modernism or reactions to this onslaught in the form of what has come to be called fundamentalism. #Quote by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
Reactions quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#138. There is no way to understand the public reaction to the sight of a Freak smashing a coconut with a hammer on the hood of a white Cadillac in a Safeway parking lot unless you actually do it, and I tell you it's tense. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Reactions quotes by Abraham Maslow
#139. Whereas the average individuals "often have not the slightest idea of what they are, of what they want, of what their own opinions are," self-actualizing individuals have "superior awareness of their own impulses, desires, opinions, and subjective reactions in general." #Quote by Abraham Maslow
Reactions quotes by Carl Watson
#140. The politicians on the front page of the morning edition however weren't laughing, they were serious. They were calling each other liars in large black letters. They seemed to be illustrating that arcane evolutionary theory that politicians are really ugly larval prototypes of our simpler more primitive selves, controlled by gut-level chemical reactions, and broadcast from the inner depts. of the sub-libido in order to impose order on what is really simply ridiculous. #Quote by Carl Watson
Reactions quotes by Gertrude Stein
#141. It is funny that men who are supposed to be scientific cannot get themselves to realise the basic principle of physics, that action and reaction are equal and opposite, that when you persecute people you always rouse them to be strong and stronger. #Quote by Gertrude Stein
Reactions quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#142. Yes, yes, I know they make better pilots than men do; their reactions are faster, and they can tolerate more gee. They can get in faster, get out faster, and thereby improve everybody's chances, yours as well as theirs. But that still doesn't make it fun to be slammed against your spine at ten times your proper weight. But #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Reactions quotes by Pat Barker
#143. But then, that's the question. Should you even pause to consider your own reactions? These men suffer so much more than he does, more than he can imagine. In the face of their suffering, isn't it self-indulgent to think about his own feelings? He has nobody to talk to about such things and blunders his way through as best he can. If you feel nothing -this is what he comes back to time and time again -you might just as well be a machine, and machines aren't very good at caring for people. There's something machine-like about a lot of the professional nurses here. Even Sister Byrd, whom he admires, he looks at her sometimes and sees an automaton. Well, lucky for her, perhaps. It's probably more efficient to be like that. Certainly less painful. #Quote by Pat Barker
Reactions quotes by Massimiliano Gioni
#144. You witness the artists acting as witnesses, but they provide a point of view that's less monolithic. It's less official in a certain way. Many artists are speaking in the first person singular, as a reaction to dubbed-over media commentary. The thought is: "Enough with how we're represented by the media. Let me tell the story." #Quote by Massimiliano Gioni
Reactions quotes by H.E. Davey
#145. Emotional baggage, which is carried over from the past, colors our perceptions. Likewise, past conclusions and beliefs, based on reasoning that may or may not have been accurate, also tint our perception of reality. Retaining our capacity for reason is common sense, but definite conclusions and beliefs keep us from seeing life as it really is at any given moment.
Emotional reactions can be unreasonable, and reason can be flawed. It's difficult to have deep confidence in either one, especially when they're often at war with each other. But the universal mind exists in the instant, in a moment beyond time, and it sees the universe as it literally is. It's the universe perceiving itself. It is, moreover, something we can have absolute confidence in, and with that confidence, we can maintain a genuinely positive attitude. #Quote by H.E. Davey
Reactions quotes by P.C. Cast
#146. I have tried to live my life by: I cannot control others. I can only control myself and my reactions to others. And when all else fails, I choose kindness. I show compassion. Then, if I have made poor choices, I have at least not damaged my spirit. #Quote by P.C. Cast
Reactions quotes by Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha
#147. Your mind has enormous hidden dimensions. Open yourselves completely to whatever reactions and emotions the world evokes from time to time. Accept them all without any reservation or resentment. By assimilating everything and all, your mind grows deeper, stabler and more enriched. #Quote by Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha
Reactions quotes by Liane Moriarty
#148. American readers are so polite; their reactions make it seem like I've received thousands of thank-you notes. It's just lovely, and amazing the things people tell you that have touched them and related to their own lives. #Quote by Liane Moriarty
Reactions quotes by Henry A. Kissinger
#149. The first reactions are often instinctive. So one of the first things we said was that the Chinese had no right to inspect the plane, and that we had a sovereign right to. I don't know what the legal position is, but it was surely psychologically absolutely the unwise thing to do. #Quote by Henry A. Kissinger
Reactions quotes by Lisa Mantchev
#150. Our unguarded reactions are the most honest ones. #Quote by Lisa Mantchev
Reactions quotes by Arthur Koestler
#151. The ribosomes, for instance, which manufacture proteins, rival in complexity any chemical factory. The mitochondria are power plants which extract energy from food by a complicated chain of chemical reactions involving some fifty different steps: a single cell may have up to five thousand such power plants. Then there are the centrosomes, with their spindle apparatus, which organises the incredible choreography of the cell dividing into two; and the DNA spirals of heredity, coiled up in the inner sanctum of the chromosomes, working their even more potent magic. #Quote by Arthur Koestler
Reactions quotes by Jacqueline Winspear
#152. Pay attention to the reactions of your body. It is the wisdom of the self speaking to you. Be aware of concern, of anticipation, of all the feelings that come from the self. They manifest in the body. #Quote by Jacqueline Winspear
Reactions quotes by Ed Brubaker
#153. I prefer to control my brain's dopamine reactions myself. Not be at the mercy of... butterflies. #Quote by Ed Brubaker
Reactions quotes by Robert S. Cosmar
#154. (Whisper)There is no effort needed to become aware, just the attention directed inward towards the feelings and the life force. You only have to pray, beg, obey and follow the commandments of those ideas and thoughts that are worshiped in the mind and imagination. There you can be a prisoner and play the game according to their rules.

It is far better to feel the life within you and observe your reactions to it, than to analyze and compare your life to others and their experiences. One requires the dignity and self-trust within of your own life experience and the other requires that you surrender your dignity and intelligence to others who say they are more qualified then you concerning your life experiences.

The mind makes everything difficult in its search for truth and meaning, while the heart reveals to us the simplicity of the truth within us. Pay attention to your feelings, they reveal how you think and how far out of touch you can be with yourself. They can also reveal a healing wholeness when you let go and allow the god within you to reveal the mystery within the silence of you. #Quote by Robert S. Cosmar
Reactions quotes by Marie-Louise Von Franz
#155. We always tend to keep within ourselves threshold reactions such as a little doubt, or a little impulse not to do something. If the impulses are not very strong we are inclined to put them aside in a one-sided way and by this we have hurt an animal or a spirit within us. #Quote by Marie-Louise Von Franz
Reactions quotes by Charles Duhigg
#156. Delgado, monitoring the activity inside of their heads, saw that people's striata - that central dispatch - lit up with activity whenever participants played, regardless of the outcome. This kind of striatal activity, Delgado knew, was associated with emotional reactions - in particular, with feelings of expectation and excitement.9 As #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Reactions quotes by Christopher Walken
#157. Also, I think there are huge reactions sometimes, which are also mysterious. #Quote by Christopher Walken
Reactions quotes by Ivan Pavlov
#158. In the dog two conditions were found to produce pathological disturbances by functional interference, namely, an unusually acute clashing of the excitatory and inhibitory processes, and the influence of strong and extraordinary stimuli. In man precisely similar conditions constitute the usual causes of nervous and psychic disturbances. Different conditions productive of extreme excitation, such as intense grief or bitter insults, often lead, when the natural reactions are inhibited by the necessary restraint, to profound and prolonged loss of balance in nervous and psychic activity. #Quote by Ivan Pavlov
Reactions quotes by Jon Crosby
#159. It definitely seems like we are connecting with people, which is nice, because I've had a lot of music do the same for me. It's not like I don't I understand why we get the reactions we do. #Quote by Jon Crosby
Reactions quotes by John Edensor Littlewood
#160. I read in the proof sheets of Hardy on Ramanujan: "As someone said, each of the positive integers was one of his personal friends." My reaction was, "I wonder who said that; I wish I had." In the next proof-sheets I read (what now stands), "It was Littlewood who said ... " #Quote by John Edensor Littlewood
Reactions quotes by James Connolly
#161. Such a scheme.. the betrayal of the national democracy of Industrial Ulster, would mean a carnival of reaction both North and South, would set back the wheels of progress, would destroy the oncoming unity of the Irish labour movement and paralyse all advanced movements while it lasted. #Quote by James Connolly
Reactions quotes by Helen Fisher

Reactions quotes by Marian Keyes
#165. The last time I'd been unwell, suicidally depressed, whatever you want to call it, the reactions of my friends and family had fallen into several different camps:
The Let's Laugh It Off merchants: Claire was the leading light. They hoped that joking about my state of mind would reduce it to a manageable size. Most likely to say, 'Feeling any mad urges to fling yourself into the sea?'
The Depression Deniers: they were the ones who took the position that since there was no such thing as depression, nothing could be wrong with me. Once upon a time I'd have belonged in that category myself. A subset of the Deniers was The Tough Love people. Most likely to say, 'What have you got to be depressed about?'
The It's All About Me bunch: they were the ones who wailed that I couldn't kill myself because they'd miss me so much. More often than not, I'd end up comforting them. My sister Anna and her boyfriend, Angelo, flew three thousand miles from New York just so I could dry their tears. Most likely to say, 'Have you any idea how many people love you?'
The Runaways: lots and lots of people just stopped ringing me. Most of them I didn't care about, but one or two were important to me. Their absence was down to fear; they were terrified that whatever I had, it was catching. Most likely to say, 'I feel so helpless … God, is that the time?' Bronagh – though it hurt me too much at the time to really acknowledge it – was the number one offender.

#166. My films seem to be better understood and better received by the monthly publications. On television the first reactions are usually unfavorable. #Quote by Alain Resnais
Reactions quotes by William W. Lewis
#167. Even the highest compensation is a tiny fraction of the value created by many business and technical innovations. The problem with executive compensation in the United States is not with this idea. The problem is that in many cases the high compensation levels persist even when innovations do not occur and reactions to the innovations of others are slow. #Quote by William W. Lewis
Reactions quotes by Christopher Bollen
#168. Why I love chess and tennis - the volleying aspect, and the fact that your competitors' reactions and motivations and bluffs come into the game itself. #Quote by Christopher Bollen
Reactions quotes by Nisargadatta Maharaj
#169. Nisargadatta: You can have for the asking all the peace you want.

Questioner: I am asking.

Nisargadatta: You must ask with an undivided heart and live an integrated life.

Questioner: How?

Nisargadatta: Detach yourself from all that makes your mind restless. Renounce all that disturbs its peace. If you want peace, deserve it.

Questioner: Surely everybody deserves peace

Nisargadatta: Those only deserve it, who don't disturb it.

Questioner: In what way do I disturb peace?

Nisargadatta: By being a slave to your desires and fears.

Questioner: Even when they are justified?

Nisargadatta: Emotional reactions, born of ignorance or inadvertence, are never justified.

Seek a clear mind and a clean heart. All you need is to keep quietly alert, inquiring into the real nature of yourself. This is the only way to peace. #Quote by Nisargadatta Maharaj
Reactions quotes by Dan Hill
#170. I think the last thing you want to do as a writer, as a storyteller, is to create indifference. I don't necessarily go out of my way to provoke, but I would much rather have a song that triggers a whole myriad of reactions than a song that inspires a shrug of the shoulder. #Quote by Dan Hill
Reactions quotes by Dave Rudbarg
#171. One of the reasons the team on NCIS works so well-is that they live by their leader's rules-which are not a secret .
What are your rules/standards? Do the people in your life know what they are? Do you hold grudges/resentments when they don't measure up? Do you pretend that everything is fine-when it's not-and close up a little every day?
And most importantly-
When was the last time YOU reviewed/upgraded your standards/expectations rules-and took a look at the impact around you/checked in?
(Hint-most people live from rules/standards/expectations created from reactions/perceptions formed around the age of six)
Might be time for a review/upgrade ... #Quote by Dave Rudbarg
Reactions quotes by Mark Batterson
#172. There is no situation under the sun in which your ability to respond can be taken away from you. You may not control your circumstances, but you control your reactions to them. And that is what sets the men apart from the boys! #Quote by Mark Batterson
Reactions quotes by William Hague

Reactions quotes by Assata Shakur
#174. I had grown up at a time when people were being lynched, being attacked with water hoses. Becoming active and learning a different way of viewing my life was a healthy reaction to what I was seeing every day. #Quote by Assata Shakur

Reactions quotes by Gwen Olsen
#178. However, because of the great marketing hype surrounding the SSRIs, one of them, Prozac, now has the distinguished honor of having more adverse effects submitted to the FDA than any other drug in history. More than 40,000 adverse reactions were reported in its first ten years on the market. No other drug even comes close (Breggin and Cohen 67). #Quote by Gwen Olsen
Reactions quotes by Jeremy Rifkin
#179. The American public is not aware that there might be potential allergenic and toxic reactions. With regular food, at least people know which foods they have an allergy to. #Quote by Jeremy Rifkin

Reactions quotes by Cesare Pavese
#181. Literature is a defense against the attacks of life. It says to life: You can't deceive me. I know your habits, foresee and enjoy watching all your reactions, and steal your secret by involving you in cunning obstructions that halt your normal flow. #Quote by Cesare Pavese
Reactions quotes by Sarah Schulman
#182. We react constantly through life. Breathing, noticing, thinking, swallowing, feeling, and moving are all reactions. Most reactions are not really observed because they are commensurate with their stimuli, but a triggered reaction stands out because it is out of sync with what is actually taking place. When we are triggered, we have unresolved pain from the past that is expressed in the present. The present is not seen on its own terms. The real experience of the present is denied. Although reacting to the past in the present may make sense within the triggered person's logic system, it can have detrimental effects on those around them who are not the source of the pain being expressed, but are being punished nonetheless. They are acting in the present, but are being made accountable for past events they did not cause and cannot heal. The one being falsely blamed is also a person, and this burden may hurt their life. The person being triggered is suffering, but they often make other people suffer as well. There is narcissism to Supremacy, but there is also a narcissism to Trauma, when a person cannot see how others are being affected. Although the triggered person may be made narcissistic and self-involved by the enormity of their pain, both parties are in fact equally important. And it is the job of the surrounding communities to insist on this. #Quote by Sarah Schulman
Reactions quotes by Charles F. Glassman
#183. Habits are familiar and comfortable, putting our reactions on autopilot and often leading us, instead, to great discomfort. #Quote by Charles F. Glassman
Reactions quotes by Rick Warren
#184. Three enemies that will weaken your ministry over time: Self-indulgence, bitterness, and carelessness. Strong people discipline their desires, restrain their reactions, and keep their commitments. #Quote by Rick Warren
Reactions quotes by David Jeremiah
#185. James teaches us that we can be victors instead of victims, if we will mentally prepare ourselves by: 1. celebrating the reason behind our trials; 2. calculating the results of our trials; 3. calling on God's resources in our trials; 4. considering our reactions to our trials; 5. contemplating the reward of our trials. #Quote by David Jeremiah

Reactions quotes by Michael Robotham
#187. Violence is inevitable in crime novels, but there are many different ways to tell a story. I use my characters' reactions to illustrate the worst moments rather than let readers witness them at first hand. #Quote by Michael Robotham
Reactions quotes by Ade Akinbiyi
#188. I was watching the Blackburn game on TV on Sunday when it flashed on the screen that George (Ndah) had scored in the first minute at Birmingham. My first reaction was to ring him up. Then I remembered he was out there playing. #Quote by Ade Akinbiyi
Reactions quotes by Margaret Atwood
#189. Sometimes reactions can be quite surprising: readers like things that you, the author, feel you've barely gotten away with; or they dislike one of the parts you secretly think is one of your little gems. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Reactions quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#190. It's like how on certain days some people wear sweaters when other people can wear t-shirts and still feel comfortable - different reactions to the same temperature. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Reactions quotes by Chad Hugo
#191. I'm not trying to disrespect anybody by saying this - I'm not sure I feel any interaction with Asian America in any collective sense. - It's like, when you're telling me this right now, my reaction is, Really? Asian America knows about me? #Quote by Chad Hugo
Reactions quotes by Jhumpa Lahiri
#192. They don't understand why I want to take such a risk. These reactions don't surprise me. A transformation, especially one that is deliberately sought, is often perceived as something disloyal, threatening. #Quote by Jhumpa Lahiri
Reactions quotes by Arthur Henderson
#193. The years of the economic depression have been years of political reaction, and that is why the economic crisis has generated a world peace crisis. #Quote by Arthur Henderson
Reactions quotes by Jackee Harry
#194. Reality shows are for reality stars. Celebrities do, maybe, Dancing With The Stars, maybe they might do Celebrity Wife Swap, but dealing with strangers, with people you don't know, in a real situation? People say it's fake, it's based on what they tell other people to do but won't tell you, but you still have a gut reaction, you know. #Quote by Jackee Harry
Reactions quotes by Mark Lawrence
#195. Confusing the author and the character seems to be a popular and rather unsophisticated reaction to books. #Quote by Mark Lawrence
Reactions quotes by Lance Conrad
#196. It is impossible to know the whole depth of someone's character from a single moment, but seeing how they respond to the unexpected is a great start. #Quote by Lance Conrad
Reactions quotes by Renee Carlino
#197. Sometimes we're just along for the ride. We can't control everything; we can only do our best to control our reactions when life doesn't go our way. #Quote by Renee Carlino
Reactions quotes by Elihu Root
#198. The point of departure of the process to which we wish to contribute is the fact that war is the natural reaction of human nature in the savage state, while peace is the result of acquired characteristics. #Quote by Elihu Root
Reactions quotes by Jenny Slate
#199. When I'm on stage, and when I'm comfortable or uncomfortable, I have sort of a knee-jerk reaction to try to make people laugh. It's my version of a handshake to show that I want to make a connection and to show what I'm truly like. It's kind of my statement like, "This is what I'm really like. I'd like you to love me." #Quote by Jenny Slate
Reactions quotes by Murray Bookchin
#200. Until recently, attempts to resolve the contradictions created by urbanization, centralization, bureaucratic growth and statification were viewed as a vain counterdrift to "progress" - a counterdrift that could be dismissed as chimerical and reactionary. The anarchist was regarded as a forlorn visionary, a social outcast, filled with nostalgia for the peasant village or the medieval commune. His yearnings for a decentralized society and for a humanistic community at one with nature and the needs of the individual - the spontaneous individual, unfettered by authority - were viewed as the reactions of a romantic, of a declassed craftsman or an intellectual "misfit." His protest against centralization and statification seemed all the less persuasive because it was supported primarily by ethical considerations - by Utopian, ostensibly "unrealistic," notions of what man could be, not by what he was. In response to this protest, opponents of anarchist thought - liberals, rightists and authoritarian "leftists" - argued that they were the voices of historic reality, that their statist and centralist notions were rooted in the objective, practical world.
Time is not very kind to the conflict of ideas. Whatever may have been the validity of libertarian and non-libertarian views a few years ago, historical development has rendered virtually all objections to anarchist thought meaningless today. The modern city and state, the massive coal-steel technology of the Industrial Revoluti #Quote by Murray Bookchin
