Receptivity Define quotes by Ben  Rhodes
#1. One common criticism emerged from Congress and the media: Obama had not formally addressed the nation since authorizing military action. So, on March 28, two weeks after the Situation Room meeting that had set everything in motion, he gave a speech at the National Defense University in Washington. The television networks said they wouldn't carry it in prime time, so it was scheduled for the second-tier window of 7:30 P.M., an apt metaphor for the Libyan operation - cable, not network; evening, not prime time; kinetic military operation, not war. The speech was on a Monday, and I spent a weekend writing it. Obama was defensive. Everything had gone as planned, and yet the public and political response kept shifting - from demanding action to second-guessing it, from saying he was dithering to saying he wasn't doing enough. Even while he outlined the reasons for action in Libya, he stepped back to discuss the question that would continue to define his foreign policy: the choice of when to use military force. Unlike other wartime addresses, he went out of his way to stress the limits of what we were trying to achieve in Libya " - saving lives and giving Libyans a chance to determine their future, not installing a new regime or building a democracy. He said that we would use force "swiftly, decisively, and unilaterally" to defend the United States, but he emphasized that when confronted with other international crises, we should proceed with caution and not act alone. #Quote by Ben Rhodes
Receptivity Define quotes by George Saunders
#2. If we define Megaphone as the composite of hundreds of voices we hear each day that come to us from people we don't know, via high-tech sources, it's clear that a significant and ascendant component of that voice has become bottom-dwelling, shrill, incurious, ranting, and agenda-driven. It strives to antagonize us, make us feel anxious, ineffective, and alone; convince us that the world is full of enemies and of people stupider and less agreeable than ourselves; is dedicated to the idea that, outside the sphere of our immediate experience, the world works in a different, more hostile, less knowable manner. This braindead tendency is viral and manifests intermittently; while it is the blood in the veins of some of your media figures, it flickers on and off in others. #Quote by George Saunders
Receptivity Define quotes by Murray N. Rothbard
#3. Suppose for a moment, that we define a virtuous act as bowing in the direction of Mecca every day at sunset. We attempt to persuade everyone to perform this act. But suppose that instead of relying on voluntary conviction we employ a vast number of police to break into everyone's home and see to it that every day they are pushed down to the floor in the direction of Mecca. No doubt by taking such measures we will increase the number of people bowing toward Mecca. But by forcing them to do so, we are taking them out of the realm of action and into mere motion, and we are depriving all these coerced persons of the very possibility of acting morally. By attempting to compel virtue, we eliminate its possibility. To be moral, an act must be free. #Quote by Murray N. Rothbard
Receptivity Define quotes by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
#4. Patriotism! It is used to define so many diversities, to justify so many wrongs, to compass so many ends, that its life is killed out; it becomes a dead word in the vocabulary-a blank counter, to be moved to any part of the game; and that flag which, streaming from the mast-head of our ship of state, striped with martyr-blood, and glistening with the stars of lofty promise, should always indicate our worldwide mission, and the glorious destinies that we carry forward, is bandied about in every selfish skirmish, and held up as the symbol of every political privateer. #Quote by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
Receptivity Define quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#5. It would be wise to define 'living' as walking in the fullest expression of who I am, verses wallowing in the confines of who I'm not. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Receptivity Define quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#6. Evil, good, create, destroy. Puny minds. Puny caves. Time, MacKayla. Time absolves.
Time does not define the act. Time is impartial; it neither condemns nor absolves. The action contains intent, and intent is where the definition lies. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Receptivity Define quotes by Dylan Lee Peters
#7. It's moments like these that define the true nature of a person. The world seemingly spinning out of control, your mind darting from one issue to another. Instinctual priority takes over. Situations such as these will reveal a man's soul. #Quote by Dylan Lee Peters
Receptivity Define quotes by George P. Shultz
#8. I don't know how you define 'neoconservatism,' but I think it's associated with trying to spread open political systems and democracy. #Quote by George P. Shultz
Receptivity Define quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#9. One might almost define intelligence as the level at which an aware organism demands, 'What's in it for me? #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Receptivity Define quotes by Savi Sharma
#10. If two points are destined to touch, the universe will always find a way to make the connection- even when all hope seems to be lost. Certain ties cannot be broken. They define who we are and who we become. Across space, across time, among paths we cannot predict- nature will always find a way. #Quote by Savi Sharma
Receptivity Define quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#11. A man would never set out to write a book on the peculiar
situation of the human male. But if I wish to define myself, I
must first of all say: T am a woman #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Receptivity Define quotes by Sarah Dessen
#12. It was something I couldn't put my finger on or define clearly, but a whole mishmash of words and incidents, all rolling quickly and building, like a snowball down a hill, to gather strength and bulk to flatten me. It wasn't what they said, or even just the looks they exchanged when they asked me how school was that day and I just mumbled fine with my mouth full, glancing wistfully over at Scarlett's, where I was sure she was eating alone, in front of the TV, without having to answer to anyone. There had been a time, once, when my mother would have been the first I'd tell about Macon Faulkner, and what P.E. had become to me. But now I only saw her rigid neck, the tight, thin line of her lips as she sat across from me, reminding me to do my homework, no I couldn't go to Scarlett's it was a school night, don't forget to do the dishes and take the trash out. All she'd said to me for years. Only now they all seemed loaded with something else, something that fell between us on the table, blocking any further conversation. #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Receptivity Define quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#13. A tragedy is a tragedy, no matter what, but I've learned that it doesn't define who we are and it doesn't weaken us. It makes us stronger. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Receptivity Define quotes by Tim Ferriss
#14. The downstream effects are unknown. Do your best and hope for the best. If you're improving the world-however you define that-consider your job well done. #Quote by Tim Ferriss
Receptivity Define quotes by Dorothy Koomson
#15. If I had a girl, I'd want her to know that she can be anything she wants and that she doesn't have to rely on her looks or clothes or hair or make-up to define who she is or to get respect from other people. I'd want her to know she has a right to be respected or noticed because she was born. I'm not talking about all the girl power nonsense, I'm talking about my girl growing up knowing she has the right to be treated decently simply because she was born. #Quote by Dorothy Koomson
Receptivity Define quotes by Robert H. Bork
#16. Radical egalitarianism necessarily presses us towards collectivism because a powerful state is required to suppress the differences that freedom produces. That raises the sinister and seemingly paradoxical possibility that radical individualism is the handmaiden of collectivist tyranny.

This individualism, it is quite apparent in our time, attacks the authority of family, church, and private association. The family is said to be oppressive, the fount of our miseries. It is denied that the church may legitimately insist upon what it regards as moral behavior in its members. Private association are routinely denied the autonomy to define their membership for themselves.

The upshot is that these institutions, which stand between the state and the individual, are progressively weakened and their functions increasingly dictated or taken over by the state. The individual becomes less of a member of powerful private institutions and more a member of an unstructured mass that is vulnerable to the collectivist coercion of the state. Thus does radical individualism prepare the way for its opposite. #Quote by Robert H. Bork
Receptivity Define quotes by Jon Foreman
#17. I am often tempted to think of success in terms that are defined by others: records sold, popularity gained, album reviews, etc. These are impossible demands, however, and they can never be satisfied. Letting finite others define our worth is a horrible way to live. Only the Infinite Other [God] has the authority to do this. #Quote by Jon Foreman
Receptivity Define quotes by Ace Antonio Hall
#18. If you understand 'it' will come, then you'll understand 'it' will pass. No matter what happens, you can make it. Trust me, you can. #Quote by Ace Antonio Hall
Receptivity Define quotes by Josh Lanyon
#19. Define history. Was it the sequence of factual past events, the stories about the factual sequence of past events, or the interpretation of the stories about past events? #Quote by Josh Lanyon
Receptivity Define quotes by Edward Albee
#20. Anything you put in a play
any speech
has got to do one of two things: either define character or push the action of the play along. #Quote by Edward Albee
Receptivity Define quotes by Katrina Kaif
#21. I would not be able to define my star power as I do not know what that is. #Quote by Katrina Kaif
Receptivity Define quotes by Kim Jong Il
#22. A film with an untidy plot cannot grip the audience and define their emotional response. #Quote by Kim Jong Il
Receptivity Define quotes by Margaret Mead
#23. [Mead saw at least two major problems in dating. First, it encourages men and women to define heterosexual relationships as situational, rather than ongoing] You "have a date," you "go out with a date," you "groan because there isn't a decent date in town." A situation defined as containing a girl or boy of the right social background, the right degree of popularity, a little higher than your own #Quote by Margaret Mead
Receptivity Define quotes by C. G. Jung
#24. Because there are innumerable things beyond the range of human understanding, we constantly use symbolic terms to represent concepts that we cannot define or fully comprehend. This is one reason why all religions employ symbolic language or images. But this conscious use of symbols is only one aspect of a psychological fact of great importance: Man also produces symbols unconsciously and spontaneously, in the form of dreams. #Quote by C. G. Jung
Receptivity Define quotes by Richard M. Weaver
#25. In recognizing that words have power to define and to compel, the semanticists are actually testifying to the philosophic quality of language which is the source of their vexation. In an attempt to get rid of that quality, they are looking for some neutral means which will be a nonconductor of the current called "emotion" and its concomitant of evaluation. #Quote by Richard M. Weaver
Receptivity Define quotes by Cassandra Clare
#26. Creating characters is like throwing together ingredients for a recipe. I take characteristics I like and dislike in real people I know, or know of, and use them to embellish and define characters. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Receptivity Define quotes by Ed Robertson
#27. Only your customers can define quality, because it's meeting your customers' expectations the first time every time. Simply put, it's performance to the standards of the customer. #Quote by Ed Robertson
Receptivity Define quotes by K.J. Charles
#28. I don't believe in demons and pitchforks. But I think, if you had to define hell, you could take a good man and deny him the rites he believed in, and condemn his soul to a slow process of corruption until it was nothing but a mass of rage and hate and seething evil that his true self would have loathed. I think that would be hell. #Quote by K.J. Charles
Receptivity Define quotes by Timothy Keller
#29. Unless you first do the hard work of answering those questions about a text, your meditations won't be grounded in what God is actually saying in the passage. Something in the passage may "hit" you - but it may hit you as expressing almost the opposite of what the biblical author, inspired by the Spirit, was saying. When that happens, you are listening to your own heart or to the spirit of your own culture, not to God's voice in the Scripture. A great number of books advise "divine reading" of the Bible today, and define the activity uncarefully as reading "not for information but to hear a personal word of God to you." This presents a false contrast. It is certainly true that meditation personalizes the Word, but before we can meditate on what the text personally means to us and our time, we must first need to know as much as possible what the author meant to say to his readers when he wrote it. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Receptivity Define quotes by John Shelton Reed
#30. If you care to define the South as a poor, rural region with lousy race relations, that South survives only in geographical shreds and patches and most Southerners don't live there any more. #Quote by John Shelton Reed
Receptivity Define quotes by Noam Chomsky
#31. And if you look at all this academic work in the conferences and so on there's a constant theme that terrorism is extremely hard to define and we therefore have to have a deep thinking about it. And the reason it's hard to define is quite simple. It's hard to find a definition that includes what they do to us but excludes what we do to them. That's quite difficult. So it takes a global war on terrorism. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Receptivity Define quotes by Donald J. Trump
#32. where the main job of the entrepreneur is to define the mission, find and inspire the team, and lead. #Quote by Donald J. Trump
Receptivity Define quotes by Adrienne Kennedy
#33. I've never tried to define my states of mind when I write. #Quote by Adrienne Kennedy
Receptivity Define quotes by Anne Sweeney
#34. Define success on your own terms, achieve it by your own rules, and build a life you're proud to live. #Quote by Anne Sweeney
Receptivity Define quotes by Hal Duncan
#35. Words command us. Names define us. Definitions bind us. Words are where we keep our sacred secrets. #Quote by Hal Duncan
Receptivity Define quotes by Kathryn Stockett
#36. And why? Because they are suffocating within the lines that define their town and their times. And sometimes lines are made to be crossed. #Quote by Kathryn Stockett
Receptivity Define quotes by Charles Fort
#37. We cannot define. Nothing has ever been finally figured out, because there is nothing final to figure out #Quote by Charles Fort
Receptivity Define quotes by Chris Burkmenn
#38. It is often the tiny steps that define the big moments in our dreams. #Quote by Chris Burkmenn
Receptivity Define quotes by Ashish Patel
#39. Formal education and current position can define your worthiness. What makes you extraordinary is defined by your attitude towards others. #Quote by Ashish Patel
Receptivity Define quotes by Celso Cukierkorn
#40. One of the best lessons we can learn is humility. You should define your material possessions; they shouldn't define you. # #Quote by Celso Cukierkorn
Receptivity Define quotes by F. Paul Wilson
#41. I define a thriller as a big-stakes, multiple-viewpoint novel involving suspense, action, and mystery, in which the reader doesn't know everything but usually knows more than any single character. #Quote by F. Paul Wilson
Receptivity Define quotes by Ayn Rand
#42. In order to live, man must act; in order to act, he must make choices; in order to make choices, he must define a code of values; in order to define a code of values, he must know what he is and where he is – i.e. he must know his own nature (including his means of knowledge) and the nature of the universe in which he acts – i.e. he needs metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, which means: philosophy. He cannot escape from this need; his only alternative is whether the philosophy guiding him is to be chosen by his mind or by chance. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Receptivity Define quotes by Jean Vanier
#43. Peace is the fruit of love, a love that is also justice. But to grow in love requires work
hard work. And it can bring pain because it implies loss
loss of the certitudes, comforts, and hurts that shelter and define us. #Quote by Jean Vanier
Receptivity Define quotes by Michael Ignatieff
#44. Politics isn't a reality show or a gong show. It's not show business for ugly people. It's the arena where we define our common life in a rough and ready contest that has winners and losers. #Quote by Michael Ignatieff
Receptivity Define quotes by Leonard Nimoy
#45. I could not deprive you of the revelation of all that you could accomplish together, of a friendship that will define you both in ways you cannot yet realize #Quote by Leonard Nimoy
Receptivity Define quotes by H.J. Bellus
#46. Never let a name or circumstances define you. Rise above it and one day you'll realize you're worth fighting for"

-That Girl. #Quote by H.J. Bellus
Receptivity Define quotes by Douglas Coupland
#47. I think half the people who get married now have met online. If I think about all the people in my life who married - they met online, online, online. And it makes sense if you think about it, because you fill out this form of 35 things that really define you and - bam - look, you've got two people who match. It works. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
