Seeking quotes by Denrele Edun
#1. I want a woman who can go to the saloon with me, not hypocritical, fame seeking #Quote by Denrele Edun
Seeking quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#2. We are in this together. None of us truly walk in isolation, even when we cannot sense the presence of another for miles upon miles. Even in the worst of our desolation. Even during our coldest 3am breakdown. Even when we shut out the world and spin in circles until we collapse. Even then the light still gets in. Even then the heart still opens and reaches, tendrils of hope curling and bending toward slivers of light. Upward, outward, in all directions – seeking light at all cost. One way or another, we all grow toward the light. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Seeking quotes by Jacqueline Francis - The Journal
#3. March 22, 2014

I have found the truth in the lies I told myself. I thought I could run from this woman, but she continues to chase me. In my mind, my heart, she's always there. An entire bottle of whiskey can't drown out her voice. I wake up each morning hoping it will finally be the day that I get over her. But then night falls and memories of her begin to torture me until sleep is no longer an option. Each night I fall into this abyss of nothingness, feeling only the emptiness of not having her beside me.

I have found the truth in the lies I told myself. I slept with another woman, all the while wishing it was her and I still went through with it.
What a fool I was. I still long to feel the satisfaction I was supposed to have felt that night. I still long to feel the freedom I'd hoped to gain from seeking refuge in the arms of another woman. But I'll never be free of her. It will take an eternity to break out of these shackles.

For one month, ONE month I couldn't keep my dick in my pants and yet for two years I haven't even so much as looked at another woman. I've remained completely faithful to a memory. Devoted to her smile.

Committed to her ever-changing green eyes. I have read through the past entries in this journal and I noticed that I have never used her name. As if inking it would somehow solidify the feelings I think I've always felt.

I have found the truth in the lies I told myself. I do love her.

Seeking quotes by Rousas John Rushdoony
#4. Man as an Idea in neoplatonist religion is again an abstraction, less a monster and more a bad joke. The religious idea of man is of a bodiless being who works to undo his flesh, deny his appetites, and to rise above the ordinary requirements of the body. This abstraction has a horror of the material world as a kind of fatal allure seeking to corrupt his soul. But no man finds himself more beset by lust than the man who tries to deny he is a man. #Quote by Rousas John Rushdoony
Seeking quotes by H.L. Mencken
#5. It is the invariable habit of bureaucracies, at all times and everywhere, to assume ... that every citizen is a criminal. Their one apparent purpose, pursued with a relentless and furious diligence, is to convert the assumption into a fact. They hunt endlessly for proofs, and, when proofs are lacking, for mere suspicions. The moment they become aware of a definite citizen, John Doe, seeking what is his right under the law, they begin searching feverishly for an excuse for withholding it from him. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Seeking quotes by Miyamoto Musashi
#6. No man is invincible, and therefore no man can fully understand that which would make him invincible. Even with complete and thorough study there is always the possibility of being defeated and although one may be expert in a particular form, mastery is something a man never stops seeking to attain. #Quote by Miyamoto Musashi
Seeking quotes by Sam Harris
#7. Meditation ... puts into question more or less everything you tend to do in your search for happiness. But if you lose sight of this, it can become just another strategy for seeking happiness a more refined version of the problem you already have. #Quote by Sam Harris
Seeking quotes by George Saunders
#8. The best stories proceed from a mysterious truth-seeking impulse that narrative has when revised extensively; they are complex and baffling and ambiguous; they tend to make us slower to act, rather than quicker. They make us more humble, cause us to empathize with people we don't know, because they help us imagine these people, and when we imagine them - if the storytelling is good enough - we imagine them as being, essentially, like us. If the story is poor, or has an agenda, if it comes out of a paucity of imagination or is rushed, we imagine those other people as essentially unlike us: unknowable, inscrutable, incontrovertible. #Quote by George Saunders
Seeking quotes by Margaret Mitchell
#9. Do I understand, sir, that you mean the Cause for which our heroes have died is not sacred?'
If you were run over by a railroad train your death wouldn't sanctify the railroad company, would it?' asked Rhett and his voice sounded as if he were humbly seeking information. #Quote by Margaret Mitchell
Seeking quotes by Ravi Zacharias
#10. Seeking new sensations while violating the sacred first desecrates the self and finally destroys the sensation. #Quote by Ravi Zacharias
Seeking quotes by Arthur Miller
#11. There is prodigious fear in seeking loose spirits #Quote by Arthur Miller
Seeking quotes by Esperanza Spalding
#12. I write at the piano, so I write things that fit comfortably under my hands, and I'm not thinking in terms of any specific compositional methods. I'm just seeking sounds. #Quote by Esperanza Spalding
Seeking quotes by Simon Winchester
#13. According to an equally lovingly preserved English translation of the prospectus, the purpose of Ibuka's firm was "to establish an ideal factory that stresses a spirit of freedom and open-mindedness, and where engineers with sincere motivation can exercise their technological skills to the highest level." We shall, he pledged, "eliminate any unfair profit-seeking exercises" and "seek expansion not only for the sake of size." Further, "we shall carefully select employees ... we shall avoid to have [sic] formal positions for the mere sake of having them, and shall place emphasis on a person's ability, performance and character, so that each #Quote by Simon Winchester
Seeking quotes by Michael Short
#14. Perhaps the most reliable route to meaning and joy, to plunging below the surface and seeking more than the superficiality of material ambition, is connection with people, places, ideas and issues. Of these, the most important are people and relationships. And the most reliable route to relationships is conversation. #Quote by Michael Short
Seeking quotes by Caitlin Thomas
#15. If happiness comes at all: which is by no means prearranged; it comes by the way, while you are seeking for something else. Something outside yourself, beyond yourself: in a brief absorption of self-forgetfulness. #Quote by Caitlin Thomas
Seeking quotes by Bryant McGill
#16. A life of success comes from seeking a life of beauty. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Seeking quotes by Andre Gide
#17. Believe those who are seeking the truth. Doubt those who find it. #Quote by Andre Gide
Seeking quotes by D.L. Moody
#18. Read the Bible, my friends, as if you were seeking for something of value. It is a good deal better to take a single chapter, and spend a month on it, than to read the Bible at random for a month. #Quote by D.L. Moody
Seeking quotes by Adrienne Rich
#19. Poetry, in its own way, is a carrier of the sparks, because it too comes out of silence, seeking connection with unseen others. #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Seeking quotes by Cameron C. Taylor
#20. So often we look for a magic secret or new technique that will produce tremendous returns and results with little or no work. Those seeking this magic secret will never find it - for the secret to success is to continually live and apply basic, simple fundamentals over a long period of time. #Quote by Cameron C. Taylor
Seeking quotes by Roberto G. Ferrari
#21. My son is the man who is handing his passport to the policeman.
My son is the policeman who is receiving the passport.
My son is the old man in front of me in the queue, here, in the air-port, in Beijing.
Over the last twelve months, I have been seeing the face of my son in the faces of all the Chinese people I have happened to meet.
I was walking in Milan, Italy, when Laura called me and told me that our application had been finally sent to China. We would be receivinga son or a daughter from China. I was excited. I put my phone into my jacket pocket and slowed down in the Corso Vittorio Emanuele gallery. There was a multitude of people around me, but I was totally unaware of their existence. I was trying to picture my son's, or my daughter's face and hands. I wondered what age he or she was. For a while I kept imagining and reviewing all the possibilities, and all the hypotheses, but I was not able to create an image which would bring an end to my seeking.
Then, suddenly, I found him.
He was walking in front of me with his wife and little daughter. I was not sure about his origin, if he were truly Chinese or not, but it was definitely him. He was a little younger than I. I was happy to see he was so distinguished, with his gold-rimmed glasses and nicely ironed, blue shirt. #Quote by Roberto G. Ferrari
Seeking quotes by Max Planck
#22. It is not the possession of truth, but the success which attends the seeking after it, that enriches the seeker and brings happiness to him. #Quote by Max Planck
Seeking quotes by Mary Baker Eddy
#23. The rich in spirit help the poor in one grand brotherhood, all having the same Principle, or Father; and blessed is that man who seeth his brother's need and supplieth it, seeking his own in another's good. #Quote by Mary Baker Eddy
Seeking quotes by Isabel Wilkerson
#24. I discovered, while working on The Warmth of Other Suns, that I was not writing about geography and relocation, but about the American caste system, an artificial hierarchy in which most everything that you could and could not do was based upon what you looked like and that manifested itself north and south. I had been writing about a stigmatized people, six million of them, who were seeking freedom from the caste system in the South, only to discover that the hierarchy followed them wherever they went, much in the way that the shadow of caste, I would soon discover, follows Indians in their own global diaspora. #Quote by Isabel Wilkerson
Seeking quotes by Judith Martin
#25. Shame is the proper reaction when one has purposefully violated the accepted behavior of society. Inflicting it is etiquette's response when its rules are disobeyed. The law has all kinds of nasty ways of retaliating when it is disregarded, but etiquette has only a sense of social shame to deter people from treating others in ways they know are wrong. So naturally Miss Manners wants to maintain the sense of shame. Some forms of discomfort are fully justified, and the person who feels shame ought to be dealing with removing its causes rather than seeking to relieve the symptoms. #Quote by Judith Martin
Seeking quotes by John Ortberg
#26. Being deeply contented with God in my everyday life is a focused attitude. It is always available. It means practicing letting go of my obsession with how I'm doing. It means training myself to learn to actually be present with people, and seeking to love them. #Quote by John Ortberg
Seeking quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#27. If you do not seek the truth by yourself, you will be misled. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Seeking quotes by Amy Webb
#28. You are a:
Woman seeking man

Regrettably, "Woman seeking man who's not a lying asshole" wasn't an option. #Quote by Amy Webb
Seeking quotes by Skye Jethani
#29. Faith is the opposite of seeking control. It is surrendering control. It embraces the truth that control is an illusion - we never had it and we never will. Rather than trying to overcome our fears by seeking more control, the solution offered by LIFE WITH GOD is precisely the opposite - we overcome fear by surrendering control. #Quote by Skye Jethani
Seeking quotes by Julie Burchill
#30. What men don't want, in fact what anyone who's any sort of thrill-seeking, intelligent adult doesn't want, is some crushing bore describing their emotions in real time every waking hour. #Quote by Julie Burchill
Seeking quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#31. Be willing to walk with God. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Seeking quotes by J.I. Packer
#32. To summarize, then, it appears that Christian holiness is a number of things together. It has both outward and inward aspects. Holiness is a matter of both action and motivation, conduct and character, divine grace and human effort, obedience and creativity, submission and initiative, consecration to God and commitment to people, self-discipline and self-giving, righteousness and love. It is a matter of Spirit-led law-keeping, a walk, or course of life, in the Spirit that displays the fruit of the Spirit (Christlikeness of attitude and disposition). It is a matter of seeking to imitate Jesus' way of behaving, through depending on Jesus for deliverance from carnal self-absorption and for discernment of spiritual needs and possibilities. #Quote by J.I. Packer
Seeking quotes by Meister Eckhart
#33. Jesus went into the temple and boldly drove out those that bought and sold. And when all was cleared, there was nobody left but Jesus. Observe this, for it is the same with us: when he is alone he is able to speak in the temple of the soul.
If anyone else is speaking in the temple of your soul, Jesus will keep still, as if he were not at home. And he is not at home wherever there are strange guests-guests with whom the soul holds conversation, guests who are seeking to bargain. If Jesus is to speak and be heard, the soul must be alone and quiet. #Quote by Meister Eckhart
Seeking quotes by Bode Miller
#34. Join the bold, the brazen, the unintimidated. Join not having excuses. Join the idea that fun is the source of all joy. Join the unwillingness to give up. Join doing things your way. Join not joining. Join that purpose is stronger than outcome. Join your gut. Join the constant challenge of seeking greatness. Join play. Join the hunger to find what makes you happy. Join karma and nature and the effect you have on your world. Join your philosophy. Join something bigger than you. Join what you believe. #Quote by Bode Miller
Seeking quotes by B. H. Roberts
#35. A temple, first of all, is a place of
prayer; and prayer is communion with God. It is the 'infinite in man
seeking the infinite in God.' Where they find each other, there is holy
sanctuary
a temple. #Quote by B. H. Roberts
Seeking quotes by David Eagleman
#36. And in this form, they find themselves longing to ascend mountains, wander the seas, and conquer the air, seeking to recapture the limitlessness they once knew. #Quote by David Eagleman
Seeking quotes by Jon Meacham
#37. The break was in some ways a sign that Jefferson had transcended the simpler rhetorical categories of the post-1798 period. It was easy to speak theoretically and idealistically about politics when one is seeking power. The demands of exercising it once it is won, however, are so complex and fluid that ideological certitude is often among the first casualties of actual governing. Jefferson had achieved something that his Federalist foes would not have thought possible: He was, to some, no longer Republican enough. Jefferson was, in other words, a man who had displeased the extremes of his day - a sign that he had been guided not by dogma but by principled pragmatism. #Quote by Jon Meacham
Seeking quotes by Jerry Spinelli
#38. Great achievement goes through, not around, discouragement. Is there a roadblock in my way, keeping me from something I want to achieve? Am I discouraged? I understand now that discouragement often precedes achievement. Instead of retreating from the roadblock or seeking a way around it, I will boldly punch a hole through it and continue toward my goal. #Quote by Jerry Spinelli
Seeking quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#40. Peace, however, is not merely a gift to be received: it is also a task to be undertaken. In order to be true peacemakers, we must educate ourselves in compassion, solidarity, working together, fraternity, in being active within the community and concerned to raise awareness about national and international issues and the importance of seeking adequate mechanisms for the redistribution of wealth, the promotion of growth, cooperation for development and conflict resolution. 'Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God', as Jesus says in the Sermon on the Mount #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Seeking quotes by Aleena Stark
#41. She had practically begged Kai to take her body and soul twice, against all her meticulously built walls. Kai hadn't even bothered to completely demolish them in order to claim her. He just stood patiently on the other side waiting for her to knock them down. In place of the once strong young woman, stood a moth desperately seeking the flame of her demise. #Quote by Aleena Stark
Seeking quotes by Amish Tripathi
#42. If you decide to challenge your destiny, your opponent would not be some judgemental Lord Almighty who is seeking to punish you; your opponent would only be the limitations of your own mind. This will empower you to fight your fate. #Quote by Amish Tripathi
Seeking quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#43. I have never claimed to live by any set of principles," Warner says to me. "I've never claimed to be right, or good, or even justified in my actions. I have been forced to do terrible things in my life, love, and I am seeking neither your forgiveness nor your approval. Because I do not have the luxury of philosophizing over scruples when I'm forced to act on basic instinct every day. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Seeking quotes by Bill Viola
#44. One of the most important things for me in terms of my working method is doubt. I get very insecure about my ideas. And I don't say 'insecure' in kind of a paranoid way. I mean just: 'Are they good enough?' 'Is this the right thing to do?' I really beat myself up over that. #Quote by Bill Viola
Seeking quotes by Katha Pollitt
#45. Contrary to the popular stereotype of abortion-seeking women as promiscuous teenagers or child-hating professionals, around 6 in 10 women who have abortions are already mothers. #Quote by Katha Pollitt
Seeking quotes by Criss Jami
#46. I appreciate a book intended to be judged by its cover. The insincere readers are often weeded out while the sincere readers remain curious. #Quote by Criss Jami
Seeking quotes by Patricia Cornwell
#47. All this when I know human relationships are not founded on reason any more than my roses are fertilized with debate. I know seeking asylum behind the wall of intellect and rationality is a selfish retreating into self-protectiveness at the expense of another's well-being. #Quote by Patricia Cornwell
Seeking quotes by Ezra Pound
#48. Two mystic states can be dissociated: the ecstatic-beneficent-and-benevolent, contemplation of the divine love, the divine splendour with goodwill toward others.
And the bestial, namely the fanatical, the man on fire with God and anxious to stick his snotty nose into other men's business or reprove his neighbour for having a set of tropisms different from that of the fanatic's, or for having the courage to live more greatly and openly.
The second set of mystic states is manifest in scarcity economists, in repressors etc.
The first state is a dynamism. It has, time and again, driven men to great living, it has given them courage to go on for decades in the face of public stupidity. It is paradisical and a reward in itself seeking naught further ... perhaps because a feeling of certitude inheres in the state of feeling itself. The glory of life exists without further proof for this mystic. #Quote by Ezra Pound
Seeking quotes by Henry Van Dyke
#49. Let me but live my life from year to year,
With forward face and unreluctant soul,
Not hastening to, nor turning from the goal;
Nor mourning things that disappear
In the dim past, nor holding back in fear
From what the future veils; but with a whole
And happy heart, that pays its toll
To youth and age, and travels on with cheer.
So let the way wind up the hill or down,
Through rough or smooth, the journey will be joy,
Still seeking what I sought when but a boy
New friendship, high adventure, and a crown,
I shall grow old, but never lose life's zest,
Because the road's last turn will be the best. #Quote by Henry Van Dyke
Seeking quotes by Mark Shields
#50. What you have is two men seeking the White House; they're both products of prominent New England families. They both went to private boarding schools. They both went to a prestigious university. #Quote by Mark Shields
Seeking quotes by R. Carlos Nakai
#51. A birth we embark on a good journey, seeking a destination of happiness. The journeys on our life-road facilitate development of our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual states-of-being, into a way of true power and wisdom. The Heart-center power, expressed as happiness and love, will guide us upward on a path away from frustration, bitter toil and travail. These journeys are directed inward, not outwardly in material mementos of ego and possession. The lesson is relearning that which has been suppressed and forgotten, in ourselves, since our earliest childhood. #Quote by R. Carlos Nakai
Seeking quotes by Fennel Hudson
#52. You can escape completely, seeking an alternative life, or you can play the game and go absent without leave. How you do it is up to you. #Quote by Fennel Hudson
Seeking quotes by Marcel Proust
#53. What an abyss of uncertainty, whenever the mind feels overtaken by itself; when it, the seeker, is at the same time the dark region through which it must go seeking and where all its equipment will avail it nothing. Seek? More than that: create. It is face to face with something which does not yet exist, which it alone can make actual, which it alone can bring into the light of day. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Seeking quotes by George MacDonald
#54. It was foolish indeed - thus to run farther and farther from all who could help her, as if she had been seeking a fit spot for the goblin creature to eat her in at his leisure; but that is the way fear serves us: it always sides with the thing we are afraid of. #Quote by George MacDonald
Seeking quotes by Kenn Kaufman
#55. It is now late August 2005. He has interrupted work on his ninth book to go to Sweden with his beautiful fiancee, Kimberly, and right now he is standing with his Swedish translator, getting ready to deliver a rousing bilingual speech to a crowd of hundreds at a grandstand next to the Baltic Sea. How far will this ride take him? If he had just checked off his bird list and gone home, the ride would have ended long ago. That's the main thing I've learned from the young man I once was and from his still-continuing adventures. Yes, it's good to go on a quest, but it's better to go with an open mind. The most significant we find may not be the thing we were seeking. That is what redeems the crazy ambivalence of birding, As trivial as our listing pursuit may be, it gets us out there in the real world, paying attention, hopeful and awake. Any day could be a special day, and probably will be, if we just go out to look. #Quote by Kenn Kaufman
Seeking quotes by Richard J. Foster
#56. Humility, as we all know, is one of those virtues that is never gained by seeking it. The more we pursue it the more distant it becomes. To think we have it is sure evidence that we don't. #Quote by Richard J. Foster
Seeking quotes by Margaret Mead
#57. The city as a center where, any day in any year, there may be a fresh encounter with a new talent, a keen mind or a gifted specialist-this is essential to the life of a country. To play this role in our lives a city must have a soul-a university, a great art or music school, a cathedral or a great mosque or temple, a great laboratory or scientific center, as well as the libraries and museums and galleries that bring past and present together. A city must be a place where groups of women and men are seeking and developing the highest things they know. #Quote by Margaret Mead
Seeking quotes by Chris Reifert
#58. I'm always interested in new things. I don't go seeking out every band I can hear because there are too many, especially now with the Internet. There's no way you can collect everything. #Quote by Chris Reifert
Seeking quotes by Bill Jensen
#59. Future strong builds actions upon reflection,
questions, curiosity, seeking to understand root causes and systemic connections. #Quote by Bill Jensen
Seeking quotes by Stephen Colbert
#60. A native American group has filed a class-action lawsuit against the government for mismanagement of oil, gas, grazing, timber and other royalties since 1887. They're seeking $100 billion. Here's the good news: The government has responded what I believe is an appropriate counteroffer: A two-cent Navajo stamp. #Quote by Stephen Colbert
Seeking quotes by Adam Mickley Wood
#61. Theres a process of self doubt when things go wrong. Whether or not its personal or a friend in trouble, looking at ones self isn't always the answer neither is seeking god. Just acception and the will to decide is a human condition, but the circle of choices flux with time. So fight my friend or choose your demise, because after all we are only human. #Quote by Adam Mickley Wood
Seeking quotes by Jane Harper
#62. The the street was quiet again. Country quiet.

That's partly what took city natives like the Whitlams by surprise, Falk thought: the quiet. He could understand them seeking out the idyllic country lifestyle, a lot of people did. The idea had an enticing, wholesome glow when it was weighed out from the back of a traffic jam, or while crammed into a gardenless apartment. They all had the same visions of breathing fresh clean air and knowing their neighbors. The kids would eat home-grown veggies and learn the value of an honest day's work.

On arrival, as the empty moving truck disappeared form sight, they looked around and were always taken aback by the crushing vastness of the open land. The space was the thing that hit them first. There was so much of it. There was enough to drown in. To look out and see not another soul between you and the horizon could be a strange and disturbing sight.

Soon, they discovered that the veggies didn't grow as willingly as they had in the city window box. That every single green shoot had to be coaxed and prized from the reluctant soil, and the neighbors were too busy doing the same on an industrial scale to muster much cheer in their greetings. There was no daily bumper-to-bumper commute, but there was also nowhere much to drive to.

Falk didn't blame the Whitlams, he'd seen it many times before when he was a kid. The arrivals looked around at the barrenness and the scale and the sheer bloody hardne #Quote by Jane Harper
Seeking quotes by Bonnie D. Parkin
#63. If we are in tune with the Spirit, if we are seeking the Lord and His guidance, if our direction is to return to our Father in Heaven, the sweet moments will come. And we will treasure them, for we have become instruments in the hands of God #Quote by Bonnie D. Parkin
Seeking quotes by Billy Graham
#64. When we approach the Bible as history and biography, we approach the Bible in the wrong spirit. We must read the Bible, not primarily as historians seeking information, but as men and women seeking God. #Quote by Billy Graham
Seeking quotes by Brian D. McLaren
#65. Because we are rooted in a generous Christian heritage, we are eager to collaborate with people of other faiths, and those seeking the common good. Our networks of dialogue and action thus extend beyond Christian communities to persons of all faiths, as well as to communities that are not themselves faith-based. We welcome allies and allegiances wherever we find common cause ... #Quote by Brian D. McLaren
Seeking quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#66. There is no place for fear among men and women who Almighty, who do not hesitate to humble themselves in seeking divine guidance through prayer. Though persecutions arise, though reverses come, in prayer we can find reassurance, for God will speak peace to the soul. That peace, that spirit of serenity, is life's greatest blessing. #Quote by Ezra Taft Benson
Seeking quotes by Brian Spellman
#67. Self talk and self prayer: When you audible the first and correctly interpret, the white coats correct you in a nuthouse. When you audible the second and misinterpret, the dinner coats swear you to an oath in the White House. Does this make you nuts too? Then outfit your sanity seeking political asylum at my house. #Quote by Brian Spellman
Seeking quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#68. What the philosopher is seeking is not truth, but rather the metamorphosis of the world into man. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Seeking quotes by Darlene Schacht
#69. Going on and on about his faults wouldn't serve any purpose, but that's what I did. I took count of his faults and kept track of each one. I had forgotten what 1 Corinthians says about love: "It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs" (13:5 NIV). Record keeping damages our hearts and feeds the root of bitterness within us, while love heals #Quote by Darlene Schacht

#70. The greatest KNOWLEDGE is the knowledge of GOD. #Quote by Lailah Gifty, Akita
Seeking quotes by Gary Zukav
#71. You are only as powerful as that for which you stand. Do you stand for more money in the bank and a bigger house? Do you stand for an attractive mate? Do you stand for imposing your way of thinking upon others? These are the stands of the personality seeking to satisfy its wants. Do you stand for perfection, for the beauty and compassion of each soul? Do you stand for forgiveness and humbleness? These are the stands of the personality that has aligned itself with its soul. This is the position of a truly powerful Personality. #Quote by Gary Zukav

Seeking quotes by Abdal Hakim Murad
#73. Those who come to Islam because they wish to draw closer to God have no problem with a multiform Islam radiating from a single revealed paradigmatic core. But those who come to Islam seeking an identity will find the multiplicity of traditional Muslim cultures intolerable. People with confused identities are attracted to totalitarian solutions. And today, many young Muslims feel so threatened by the diversity of calls on their allegiance, and by the sheer complexity of modernity, that the only form of Islam they can regard as legitimate is a totalitarian, monolithic one. That there should be four schools of Islamic law is to them unbearable. That Muslim cultures should legitimately differ is a species of blasphemy. #Quote by Abdal Hakim Murad
Seeking quotes by Dan Rather
#74. [I]nclusion, not assimilation, should be the key concept in seeking, ever seeking, a more perfect national union. Our own history has shown that we are stronger as a mosaic than a melting pot. Our nation is bound together more by ideals than by blood or land, and inclusion is in our cultural DNA. We should feel proud that we are not all the same, and that we can share our differences under the common umbrella of humanity. #Quote by Dan Rather
Seeking quotes by Naomi Klein
#75. changing the earth's climate in ways that will be chaotic and disastrous is easier to accept than the prospect of changing the fundamental, growth-based, profit-seeking logic of capitalism. #Quote by Naomi Klein
Seeking quotes by Isaac Newton
#76. It is the perfection of God's works that they are all done with the greatest simplicity. He is the God of order and not of confusion. And therefore as they would understand the frame of the world must endeavor to reduce their knowledge to all possible simplicity, so must it be in seeking to understand these visions. #Quote by Isaac Newton
Seeking quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#77. If we keep seeking, we shall find the sacred land. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Seeking quotes by Matt Perman
#78. So we need to not simply aim to do good in all areas of life, but be diligent in seeking to learn what actually will do good. We need to be smart about doing good. Good intentions are not enough. We need to do good that actually helps. #Quote by Matt Perman
Seeking quotes by Matt Kibbe
#79. Let us be clear about one thing: The tea party movement is not seeking a junior partnership with the Republican Party, but a hostile takeover of it. #Quote by Matt Kibbe
Seeking quotes by Jeff Goins
#80. What if the purpose of my life is not about me? Am I willing to give up all my dreams, my aspirations and comfort to find it/ Are you willing to pay the cost? This is the pearl of great price, the abundant life we are all seeking and, at the same time, petrified to find. #Quote by Jeff Goins
Seeking quotes by David DuChemin
#81. Courage is not an absence of fear, but an act of the will to move forward in the presence of fear. Fear whispers, "You might ... " Courage rebuffs it with, "Sure, but ... ." To seek a fearless life is not the same as seeking a life of courage. If we're talking about story, which is about nothing if not life, no one gives a damn about fearlessness. Very few great stories move forward with a fearless hero. Why would they? #Quote by David DuChemin
Seeking quotes by Hanzi Freinacht
#82. Ours is a world full of self-deceit, my friend. But it is at the same time a world full of sincere truth seeking, scientific progress and curios late night conversations about the nature of reality and existence. #Quote by Hanzi Freinacht
Seeking quotes by Julie Kagawa
#83. From here on," Kanin said, "you will have to decide what kind of demon you will be. Not all meals will come to you so easily, ignorant and seeking to do you harm. What will you do if your prey invites you inside, offers you a place at the table? What will you do if they flee, or cower down, begging you not to hurt them? How you stalk your prey is something you must come to terms with, or you will quickly drive yourself mad. And once you cross that threshold, there is no coming back from it. #Quote by Julie Kagawa
Seeking quotes by Jonathan D. Spence
#84. Seek joyfulness when you can, for seeking joy leads to an auspicious atmosphere. #Quote by Jonathan D. Spence
Seeking quotes by Anneli Rufus
#85. Our never-ending dread has little bearing on the outside world. That is, unless and until it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Enter enough relationships already certain you will make them fail and you will make some fail. Predict you will drive everyone away and some will be driven away. Inertia. Reticence. Shuffling with heads hung low, avoiding eye contact, always apologizing, seeking reassurance but no amount is ever enough. To others, these habits of ours are exhausting and boring. Life with us is lots of work, Loving those who hate themselves is like swimming upstream: often more trouble than it is worth. #Quote by Anneli Rufus
Seeking quotes by Brian Herbert
#86. Baron Vladimir Harkonnen had made a lifetime career of seeking new experiences. He dabbled in hedonistic pleasures - rich foods, exotic drugs, deviant sex - discovering things he had never done before.
But a baby in Harkonnen Keep ... how would he handle that? #Quote by Brian Herbert
Seeking quotes by Tite Kubo
#87. All living things believe in someone superior to them, and cannot live unless they blindly follow them. Then, the objects of their faith try to escape this crushing pressure by seeking another being that is more superior to them to believe in. And they, in turn, seek a stronger being still. That is how all kings are born. That is how... all gods are born. –Aizen #Quote by Tite Kubo
Seeking quotes by Chris Kluwe
#88. Empathy is a big part of Sparkleponies, because it's also my belief (as a history and political science major) that societies that don't practice rational empathy inevitably collapse – either by fomenting conflict from within by oppressing a segment/s of their populace, or seeking conflict from without by taking from others and eventually getting into a fight they can't win. #Quote by Chris Kluwe
Seeking quotes by David Blunkett
#89. It is now in Gordon Brown's - and the Labour party's - best interests for those seeking the prime minister's immediate departure to back off #Quote by David Blunkett
Seeking quotes by Bruce Chatwin
#90. Gradually the idea for a book began to take shape. It was to be a wildly ambitious and intolerant work, a kind of 'Anatomy of Restlessness' that would enlarge on Pascal's dictum about the man sitting quietly in a room. The argument, roughly, was as follows: that in becoming human, man had acquired, together with his straight legs and striding walk, a migratory 'drive' or instinct to walk long distances through the seasons; that this 'drive' was inseparable from his central nervous system; and, that, when warped in conditions of settlement, it found outlets in violence, greed, status-seeking or a mania for the new. This would explain why mobile societies such as the gypsies were egalitarian, thing-free and resistant to change; also why, to re-establish the harmony of the First State, all the great teachers - Buddha, Lao-tse, St Francis - had set the perpetual pilgrimage at the heart of their message and told their disciples, literally, to follow The Way. #Quote by Bruce Chatwin
Seeking quotes by Katha Pollitt
#91. Unlike the vast majority of Americans, he did not assume that a woman seeking an abortion late in pregnancy was lazy or stupid or too busy having sex to have attended to matters early on. He did not assume that her body ceased to be her own because she was pregnant. #Quote by Katha Pollitt
Seeking quotes by Ephrem The Syrian
#92. If there were only one meaning for the words, the first interpreter would find it, and all other listeners would have neither the toil of seeking nor the pleasure of finding. #Quote by Ephrem The Syrian
Seeking quotes by Dean Karnazes
#93. To an extreme athlete, there's a certain appeal to doing extreme things - seeking the most extreme physical challenges in some of the most extreme climates in the world. Testing and expanding the limits of human endurance is kind of my thing. #Quote by Dean Karnazes
Seeking quotes by V. Theia
#94. wherever you go, I'd find you, Roux. Do you know why? Because you're always seeking me out too. #Quote by V. Theia
Seeking quotes by Khadija Rupa
#95. My beauty lies in seeking You, wanting You, and obeying You…when I have everything. #Quote by Khadija Rupa
Seeking quotes by Sai Pradeep
#96. Life is too short to seek the approval of others for the choices you've already made. #Quote by Sai Pradeep
Seeking quotes by Norbert Wiener
#97. The simplest type of breakdown exhibits itself as an oscillation in a goal-seeking process which appears only when that process is actively invoked. #Quote by Norbert Wiener
Seeking quotes by Jen Groover
#98. Seeking what you get from others fuels the ego& depletes the soul.
Seeking what you can give others is where purpose& fulfillment begins. #Quote by Jen Groover
Seeking quotes by Jane Roberts
#99. Reality is so constructed that each individual seeking such fulfillment does so not at the expense of others, but in such a way that the quality of life is increased for all. #Quote by Jane Roberts
Seeking quotes by Pam Godwin
#100. Last thing I needed was a fling with some well-to-do, danger-seeking fangirl. She was probably just a bored housewife, looking for the kind of hard fuck she wasn't getting from her uptight husband. #Quote by Pam Godwin
Seeking quotes by Sun Tzu
#101. The art of war, then, is governed by five constant factors, to be taken into account in one's deliberations, when seeking to determine the conditions obtaining in the field. #Quote by Sun Tzu
Seeking quotes by Anthony Liccione
#102. God may not give that instant dollar bill your seeking, but it's in the little change He brings, that will add to a dollar. #Quote by Anthony Liccione
Seeking quotes by Jonathan Rosen
#103. It's the side-by-side culture of the Talmud I like so much. 'On the one hand' and 'on the other hand' is frustrating for people seeking absolute faith, but for me it gives religion an ambidextrous quality that suits my temperament. #Quote by Jonathan Rosen
Seeking quotes by Agatha Christie
#104. Once I went professionally to an archaeological expedition- and I learnt something there. In the course of an excavation, when something comes up out of the ground, evEryThing is cleared away very carefully all around it. You take away the loose earth, and you scare here and there with a knife until finally your object is there, all alone, ready to be drawn and photographed with no extraneous matter confusing it. That is what I have been seeking TO do- clear away the extraneous matter so that we can see the truth-the naked shining truth. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Seeking quotes by Joseph P. Kauffman
#105. All beings are conscious and have their own conscious experience. All living things have similar goals of obtaining nourishment, seeking companionship and avoiding pain. #Quote by Joseph P. Kauffman
Seeking quotes by Stefan Emunds
#106. The soul is imbued with a yearning that is carried, like a torch, from incarnation to incarnation. It burns with a curiosity about life and it's true identity. Souls live, strive, and evolve, driven to seeking the truth about the world and themselves. #Quote by Stefan Emunds
Seeking quotes by D.A. Carson
#107. Emulate those who are interested in the well-being of others, not in their own. Be on the alert for Christians who really do exemplify this basic Christian attitude, this habit of helpfulness. They are never the sort who strut their way into leadership with inflated estimates of their own importance. They are the kind who cheerfully pick up after other people. They are not offended if no one asks about them; they are too busy asking about others. They are the kind who are constantly seeking to do good spiritually, to do good materially, to do good emotionally. They are committed to the well-being of others. #Quote by D.A. Carson
Seeking quotes by Ayn Rand
#108. Are you seeking to know what is wrong with the world? All the disasters that have wrecked your world, came from your leaders' attempt to evade the fact that A is A. All the secret evil you dread to face within you and all the pain you have ever endured, came from your own attempt to evade the fact that A is A. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Seeking quotes by Kevin Mattson
#109. A democratic public forms when citizens gather together to deliberate and make public judgments about local and national issues that affect their lives. By associating together for public discussion, citizens learn the skills necessary for the health of a democratic public; listening persuading, arguing, compromising, and seeking common ground. When these skills are nurtured within the institutions of a democratic public, citizens educate themselves in order to make informed political decisions. #Quote by Kevin Mattson
Seeking quotes by Paulo Coelho
#110. For the warrior there is no such thing as an impossible love. He is not intimidated by silence, indifference or rejection. He knows that, behind the mask of ice that people wear, there beats a heart of fire. This is why the warrior takes more risks than other people. He is constantly seeking the love of someone, even if that means often having to hear the word 'No', returning home defeated and feeling rejected in body and soul. A warrior never gives in to fear when he is searching for what he needs. Without love, he is nothing. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Seeking quotes by Tim Relf
#111. You're after perfection,'Matt said.
'Is that so awful?'
'No, it's not, but if you aim for perfection, you've got to be ready to take the consequences of not getting it and one of those is ending up with no one. #Quote by Tim Relf

#112. Waiting taught me, I can't have it in my way. But in God's way. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Seeking quotes by John Bunyan
#113. As Pliable and Christian find themselves walking together toward the narrow gate, we see the stark contrast between the two pilgrims. One is burdened; the other is not. One is clutching a book that is a light to his path. The other is guideless. One is on the journey in pursuit of deliverance from besetting sins and rest for his soul. The other is on the journey in order to obtain future delights that temporarily dazzle his mind. One is slow and plodding because of his great weight and a sense of his own unrighteousness; the other is light-footed and impatient to obtain all the benefits of Heaven. One is in motion because his soul has been stirred up to both fear and hope; the other is dead to any spiritual fears,
longings, or aspirations. One is seeking God; the other is seeking self-satisfaction. One is a true pilgrim; the other is false and fading.
15. #Quote by John Bunyan
Seeking quotes by Brene Brown
#114. I see the cultural messaging everywhere that says an ordinary life is a meaningless life ... I know the yearning to believe that what I'm doing matters and how easy it is to confuse that with the drive to be extraordinary. I know how seductive it is to use the celebrity culture yardstick to measure the smallness of our lives. And I also understand how grandiosity, entitlement, and admiration-seeking feel like just the right balm to soothe the ache of being too ordinary and inadequate. #Quote by Brene Brown
Seeking quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#115. Happiness must be a jealous pet. When you try seeking yours out, it tends to keep hidden. But as soon as you turn to help a friend find his, your own happiness comes bounding out of the darkness like some crazed animal. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Seeking quotes by Sam Harris
#116. There is indeed something preposterous about well-educated Westerners racing East in search of spiritual enlightenment while Easterners make the opposite pilgrimage seeking education and economic opportunities. #Quote by Sam Harris
Seeking quotes by Steven Chu
#117. The atoms become like a moth, seeking out the region of higher laser intensity. #Quote by Steven Chu
Seeking quotes by Gangaji
#118. What ever we embrace eventually reveals the place we have been seeking. #Quote by Gangaji
Seeking quotes by Alcoholics Anonymous
#119. Selfishness, self-centeredness! That, we think, is the root of our troubles. Driven by a hundred forms of fear, self-delusion, self-seeking, and self-pity, we step on the toes of our fellows and they retaliate. Sometimes they hurt us, seemingly without provocation, but we invariably find that at some time in the past we have made decisions based on self which later placed us in a position to be hurt. So our troubles, we think, are basically of our own making. #Quote by Alcoholics Anonymous
Seeking quotes by Rumi
#120. Where there is pain, cures will come;
where there is poverty, wealth will follow.
Where there are questions, answers will be
given; where there are ships, water will flow.
Spend less time seeking water and acquire thirst! Then water will gush from above and below. #Quote by Rumi
Seeking quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#121. Happiness is strange; it comes when you are not seeking it. When you are not making an effort to be happy, then unexpectedly, mysteriously, happiness is there, born of purity, of a loveliness of being. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Seeking quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#122. General propositions – universal laws governing human thinking and human existence – leave room for many individualistic permutations. How shall I survive the specter of tomorrow, what is my life plan, and how will I come to terms with the finite lives of all humankind? How do I heal seeping internal wounds that lacerations weaken personal resolve? A person whom avoids seeking fame and fortune and engages in contemplative thought will enjoy a heightened state of existence. My survival hinges upon shedding the shackles of modern time's economic rigors; seeking penance through heartfelt contrition; accepting a vision quest devoid of wanting; rejoicing in my budding curiosity; loving nature; giving breath to living without fear and apprehension; and eliminating any form of want or angst from my cerebral being. Unshackling myself from the burdens of the past – guilt, remorse, anger, and petty resentments – is part of the healing process. The other part of a rehabilitation prescription is declaring free rein to live in the present one moment at a time. After all, humankind is the only member of the animal kingdom that walks this earth with the foreknowledge of its ultimate demise, but why would any person allow information pertaining to our personal fate ruin a perfectly good walk in nature's woodlands with our fellow creatures? #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Seeking quotes by Witter Bynner
#123. Name me no names for my disease,
With uninforming breath;
I tell you I am none of these,
But homesick unto death - Homesick for hills that I had known,
For brooks that I had crossed,
... Before I met this flesh and bone
And followed and was lost ... .And though they break my heart at last,
Yet name no name of ills.
Say only, Here is where he passed,
Seeking again those hills. #Quote by Witter Bynner
Seeking quotes by L.E. Green
#124. It is through our communion with the Holy Spirit that we are able to apprehend the things that God has given us, through our union with Jesus Christ. If you haven't taken the time to invite Him in, I advise you to do so now . Begin by seeking God specifically concerning marriage. Ask Him to prepare and position you, so that when it is time, you will be found in the right place, doing the work of God. Believe in His willingness to guide you. Trust in His wisdom and power in bringing His promises to pass. Ask Him to 'speak on' concerning your mate and your future. You may be surprised at how eager He is to answer. #Quote by L.E. Green
Seeking quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#125. The way the Democrats go about seeking equality is to lower people at the top. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Seeking quotes by Gabriel Josipovici
#126. I agree with Proust in this, he says, that books create their own silences in ways that friends rarely do. And the silence that grows palpable when one has finished a canto of Dante, he says, is quite different from the silence that grows palpable when one has reached the end of Oedipus at Colonus. The most terrible thing that has happened to people today, he says, is that they have grown frightened of silence. Instead of seeking it as a friend and as a source of renewal they now try in every way they can to shut it out ... the fear of silence is the fear of loneliness, he says, and the fear of loneliness is the fear of silence. People fear silence, he says, because they have lost the ability to trust the world to bring about renewal. Silence for them means only the recognition that they have been abandoned ... How can people find the strength to be happy if they are so terrified of silence? #Quote by Gabriel Josipovici

Seeking quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#129. Perfection is a paradigm meant to keep us striving and learning and growing. Like a wondrous sunset, perfection may be beyond our reach, but it is within our view and well worth seeking after. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Seeking quotes by Wallace D. Wattles
#130. Power seeking to manifest causes desire within you. #Quote by Wallace D. Wattles
Seeking quotes by Alexander Borodin
#131. As a composer seeking to remain anonymous I am shy of confessing my musical activity. This is intelligible enough. For others it is their chief business, the occupation and aim of life. For me it is a relaxation, a pastime which distracts me from my principal business, my professorship. I love my profession and my science. I love the Academy and my pupils, male and female, because to direct the work of young people, one must be close to them. #Quote by Alexander Borodin
Seeking quotes by Trevanian
#132. It's not Americans I find annoying; it's Americanism: a social disease of the postindustrial world that must inevitably infect each of the mercantile nations in turn, and is called 'American' only because your nation is the most advanced case of the malady, much as one speaks of Spanish flu, or Japanese Type-B encephalitis. It's symptoms are a loss of work ethic, a shrinking of inner resources, and a constant need for external stimulation, followed by spiritual decay and moral narcosis. You can recognize the victim by his constant efforts to get in touch with himself, to believe his spiritual feebleness is an interesting psychological warp, to construe his fleeing from responsibility as evidence that he and his life are uniquely open to new experiences. In the later stages, the sufferer is reduced to seeking that most trivial of human activities: fun. #Quote by Trevanian
Seeking quotes by Spencer Johnson
#133. Life is no straight and easy corridor along which we travel free and unhampered, but a maze of passages, through which we must seek our way, lost and confused, now and again checked in a blind alley. But always, if we have faith, a door will open for us, not perhaps one that we ourselves #Quote by Spencer Johnson
Seeking quotes by T.F. Hodge
#134. You carry the message you've been seeking, but realization of it is found in healthy retrospection, not among the wilderness of chaotic noise. #Quote by T.F. Hodge
Seeking quotes by Richelle Mead
#135. I went to the library seeking information on what might bring hearing back, but now I wonder if there's a way to make it go away again. I can't see why our ancestors thought hearing was such a great thing, why they mourned its loss so much. It's jarring and distracting, making it impossible to focus on anything else. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Seeking quotes by D.L. Moody
#136. I believe firmly, that the moment our hearts are emptied of pride and selfishness and ambition and self-seeking, and everything that is contrary to God's law, the Holy Ghost will come and fill every corner of our hearts; but if we are full of pride and conceit, and ambition and self-seeking, and pleasure and the world, there is no room for the Spirit of God; and I believe many a man is praying to God to fill him when he is full already with something else. Before we pray that God would fill us, I believe we ought to pray Him to empty us. There must be an emptying before there can be a filling; and when the heart is turned upside #Quote by D.L. Moody
Seeking quotes by Alison Goodman
#137. A shrieking rise of power rushed into my pathways, rocking me against the wall. Ido's body slammed into mine. He was not going to let go. Not now. The Rat Dragon howled, his heavy blue force driven back by the onslaught of sinuous gold. Raw,rejoicing energy flooded my seven centers of power; opening,pushing, seeking. And behind it all, a presence exulting in the joy of release and reunion. I looked up and finally my mind-sight was clear. I could see the Mirror Dragon. My Dragon. #Quote by Alison Goodman
Seeking quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#138. The mind must empty itself of all the past to become highly sensitive; and it cannot be sensitive if there is the burden of the past. It is only the mind that has understood all this that can put the question. And when it puts the question it has no answer, because there is no answer. The mind has become highly sensitive and therefore supremely intelligent and intelligence has no answer. It is in itself the answer. The observer has no place because intelligence is supreme.

Then the mind is no longer seeking, no longer wanting higher experiences and therefore it is not capable of control. It does not control, because it is intelligent. It is operating, it is working. Therefore, in the very act of intelligence, the dual state disappears. All this is meditation. It is like a cloud that begins on a hilltop with a few little clouds, and, as it moves, it covers the whole sky, the valley, the mountains, the rivers, the human beings, the earth; it covers everything. That is meditation because meditation is the concern of all the living, not just one part of it. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Seeking quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#139. I'm something that I used to be. I'm never where I feel I am, and if I seek myself, I don't know who's seeking me. My boredom with everything has numbed me. I feel banished from my soul. #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Seeking quotes by Paulo Coelho
#140. They were seeking the treasure of their destiny, without wanting actually to live out the destiny. #Quote by Paulo Coelho

Seeking quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#142. There is no way to genuinely, powerfully, truly love yourself while crafting a mask of perfection. I know, you know, we all know - it's hard to let your pimples and your flaws be seen. It's hard to stumble and bumble. It's hard to not know the right things to do or say. It's hard to not look like TV.

Sometimes, it's really hard for me to be the awkward mess that I am when I'm authentic, instead of having runway authenticity - all natural, but flawless. But every time I allow that to be okay, not just around myself but around others - I affirm something to myself. I affirm, to myself more than anyone else, that I am lovable and acceptable unconditionally. I affirm that it's okay to take on and take in all the flavours and hues of human experience, and not just the ones that are acceptable in this culture, in this time, in this place.

And that kind of acceptance, that kind of love - that's the kind of love that creates miracles. That's the kind of love I really need. That's the kind of love that makes approval taste like cardboard. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Seeking quotes by Deepak Chopra
#143. Every cell in your body is seeking fulfillment through joy, beauty, love and appreciation. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Seeking quotes by Faustino Ballve
#144. Nothing has value in itself. The consumer confers value on it by seeking to acquire it. Hence, the value of a thing is never objective, but always subjective. #Quote by Faustino Ballve

Seeking quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#147. He had made a passionate study of education, only to come, gradually, to the knowledge that education is nothing but the process of building up, gradually, a complete unit of consciousness. And each unit of consciousness is the living unit of that great social, religious, philosophic idea towards which humankind, like an organism seeking its final form, is laboriously growing. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence

Seeking quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#149. When you see a Minister thinking more of himself than of you, and in all his actions seeking his own ends, that man can never be a good Minister or one that you can trust. For he who has the charge of the State committed to him, ought not to think of himself, but only of his Prince, and should never bring to the notice of the latter what does not directly concern him. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Seeking quotes by M. Scott Peck
#150. Specifically, one whose life is ruled and dictated by dependency needs suffers from a psychiatric disorder to which we ascribe the diagnostic name "passive dependent personality disorder." It is perhaps the most common of all psychiatric disorders.
People with this disorder, passive dependent people, are so busy seeking to be loved that they have no energy left to love. They are like starving people, scrounging wherever they can for food, and with no food of their own to give to others. It is as if within them they have an inner emptiness, a bottomless pit crying out to be filled but which can never be completely filled. They never feel "full-filled" or have a sense of completeness. They always feel "a part of me is missing." They tolerate loneliness very poorly. Because of their lack of wholeness they have no real sense of identity, and they define themselves solely by their relationships. #Quote by M. Scott Peck

Seeking quotes by Haruki Murakami
#157. Tengo stood by the window and looked at the scene outside. Beyond the garden and lawn was the dark line of the pine windbreak, through which came the sound of waves. The rough waves of the Pacific. It was thick, darkish sound, as if many souls were gathered, each whispering his story. They seemed to be seeking more souls to join them, seeking even more stories to be told. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Seeking quotes by John R.W. Stott
#158. Such a man is altogether beyond our reach. He succeeded where we always fail. He had complete self-mastery. He never retaliated. He never grew resentful or irritable. He had such control of himself that, whatever others might think or say or do, he would deny himself and abandon himself to the will of God and the welfare of his fellow human beings. 'I seek not to please myself,' he said, and 'I am not seeking glory for myself.' As Paul wrote, 'For Christ did not please himself.' This utter disregard of self in the service of God and man is what the Bible calls love. There is no self-interest in love. The essence of love is self-sacrifice. Even the worst of us is adorned by an occasional flash of such nobility, but the life of Jesus radiated it with a never-fading incandescent glow. Jesus was sinless because he was selfless. Such selflessness is love. And God is love. #Quote by John R.W. Stott
Seeking quotes by Donalyn Miller
#159. The purpose of school should not be to prepare students for more school. We should be seeking to have fully engaged students now. #Quote by Donalyn Miller
Seeking quotes by Russell M. Nelson
#160. In your pursuit of knowledge, know that the very most important truth you can learn comes from the Lord. In His Intercessory Prayer to His Father, the Savior Himself confirmed this. He said, "This is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." Above everything else you are seeking to learn, seek to know God, your Heavenly Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ. Come to know Them and love Them as I do. #Quote by Russell M. Nelson
Seeking quotes by Kimberly D. Acquaviva
#161. If your organization is not formally committed to a policy of nondiscrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression or gender presentation in its employment practices, you should not expect lesbian,
gay, bisexual, transgender, gender-nonconforming, queer, and/or questioning patients and families to feel safe seeking out your services. #Quote by Kimberly D. Acquaviva
Seeking quotes by James Joyce
#162. I've been working hard on [Ulysses] all day," said Joyce.
Does that mean that you have written a great deal?" I said.
Two sentences," said Joyce.
I looked sideways but Joyce was not smiling. I thought of [French novelist Gustave] Flaubert. "You've been seeking the mot juste?" I said.
No," said Joyce. "I have the words already. What I am seeking is the perfect order of words in the sentence. #Quote by James Joyce
Seeking quotes by Alan Bradley
#163. Give Nature a vacuum and she will try to fill it. Give her localized pressure and she will try to disperse it. She is forever seeking a balance she can never achieve, never happy with what she's got. #Quote by Alan Bradley
Seeking quotes by Tatiana March
#164. Slowly, Joaquin leaned in, drawn closer to her against his will. Pursing his lips, he breathed warm air across her cheeks, like animals do when they learn each other's scent, learn to trust. "Easy now," he whispered in between the soft puffs of air. "Let go of the fear."
"I can't," she said, in a little broken voice that clenched at his heart.
"Yes you can." Joaquin let his lips touch her skin, the merest hint of a contact. She made a tiny sound of alarm, a cross between a sob and a cry. He brushed his mouth against hers. A shudder shook her body, but she pressed into him, seeking his shelter. Keeping his hands braced to the timber, he deepened the kiss. His mouth slanted over hers, bolder now.
Her hands rose between them and fisted into his shirt. #Quote by Tatiana March
Seeking quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#165. It is the courage to make a clean breast of it in the face of every question that makes the philosopher. He must be like Sophocles' Oedipus, who, seeking enlightenment concerning his terrible fate, pursues his indefatigable inquiry even though he divines that appalling horror awaits him in the answer. But most of us carry with us the Jocasta in our hearts, who begs Oedipus, for God's sake, not to inquire further. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Seeking quotes by Ransom Riggs
#166. In a cruel twist of irony, they achieved the immortality they'd been seeking. It's believed that the hollows can live thousands of years, but it is a life of constant physical torment, of humiliating debasement - feeding on stray animals, living in isolation - and of insatiable hunger for the flesh of their former kin, because our blood is their only hope for salvation. If a hollow gorges itself on enough peculiars, it becomes a wight. #Quote by Ransom Riggs

There were times when I consider simply taking the dagger and sinking it into his heart, I had ample opportunity after all, but I was still young and tough my hatred consumed me, I still lusted for life. I was a coward, a prisoner whose captivity was made worse by the knowledge of the vastness of his prison. Despair began to rot my heart. I fell to indulgence again, seeking escape in wine and drugs and flesh, an indulgence that would have seem me dead before long, had not the foreigners arrived. #Quote by Anthony Ryan
Seeking quotes by Jack White
#168. When you know your work sells, then seeking a gallery or outdoor show is fine. Then, if an event or art gallery kicks sand in your face don't give up, keep moving forward. Use your brain and eliminate a lot of your personal agony. There are times when you should not take NO for an answer. But there are others when you should never put yourself in the place to be rejected to begin with. Seek the wisdom to know the difference and then go for it. Persevere in the face of disappointment. #Quote by Jack White
Seeking quotes by Christopher Columbus
#169. The tempest was terrible and separated me from my [other] vessels that night, putting every one of them in desperate straits, with nothing to look forward to but death. Each was certain the others had been destroyed. What man ever born, not excepting Job, who would not have died of despair, when in such weather seeking safety for my son, my brother, shipmates, and myself, we were forbidden [access to] the land and the harbors which I, by God's will and sweating blood, had won for Spain? #Quote by Christopher Columbus
Seeking quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#170. It all comes back to curiosity. We live in a society that objectifies us as sexual objects and status symbols. We learn to flatten ourselves and others into little words: good and bad, ugly and pretty, right and wrong, lovable and unlovable. Then, we try to discover who we are through these labels. It doesn't work. Because a human being is more than a signpost onto which we can plaster our judgments. A person is more than a sack of flesh to lose, keep, or throw away. A human being cannot be packaged into a stale idea. A person must be experienced to be known, and this knowledge ends the moment you stop looking. Each one of us is a mystery. And the more aware you become, the more mysterious it gets. The reward for seeking truth is not the truth itself. The gift is wonder. The gift is love. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Seeking quotes by William Butler Yeats
#171. It is love that I am seeking for, But of a beautiful, unheard-of kind That is not in the world. #Quote by William Butler Yeats
Seeking quotes by Warren Buffett
#172. Charlie and I believe our four criteria are essential if directors are to do their job - which, by law, is to faithfully represent owners. Yet these criteria are usually ignored. Instead, consultants and CEOs seeking board candidates will often say, "We're looking for a woman," or "a Hispanic," or "someone from abroad," or what have you. It sometimes sounds as if the mission is to stock Noah's ark. Over the years I've been queried many times about potential directors and have yet to hear anyone ask, "Does he think like an intelligent owner?" The questions I instead #Quote by Warren Buffett
Seeking quotes by Michael Savage
#173. Controversial daily radio host. Considered to be engaging in unacceptable behaviour by seeking to provoke others to serious criminal acts and fostering hatred which might lead to inter-community violence. #Quote by Michael Savage
Seeking quotes by Ravi Zacharias
#174. It is a self-evident truth that a person who truly prays and seeks God's wisdom in life recognizes the sovereignty of God and is committed to seeking God's wisdom in life's important choices. #Quote by Ravi Zacharias
Seeking quotes by Sam Smith
#175. If you're seeking progress, all presidents are the opposition. You're just fighting different kinds of battles - #Quote by Sam Smith
Seeking quotes by Andrew Root
#176. The Anselmian call for "faith seeking understanding" may start and gather it's energy not in rational study of past theological points but in the pursuit to make sense of our concrete and lived experiences of Jesus who finds us in a hole, knocks us from our horse, or comes to our daughter in her sleep. #Quote by Andrew Root
Seeking quotes by Kenneth Arrow
#177. The general uncertainty about the prospects of medical treatment is socially handled by rigid entry requirements. These are designed to reduce the uncertainty in the mind of the consumer as to the quality insofar as this is possible. I think this explanation, which is perhaps the naive one, is much more tenable than any idea of a monopoly seeking to increase incomes. #Quote by Kenneth Arrow
Seeking quotes by Jane McGonigal
#178. Even if you never increase your physical or social resilience, seeking out more positive emotions every day alone can add a full decade to your life. #Quote by Jane McGonigal
Seeking quotes by Ben Tolosa
#179. When you work on what you love, you have the best job in the world. #Quote by Ben Tolosa
Seeking quotes by Margaret Sanger
#180. Like the advocates of Birth Control, the eugenists, for instance, are seeking to assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit. Both are seeking a single end but they lay emphasis upon different methods. #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Seeking quotes by Pema Chodron
#181. The third kind of loneliness is avoiding unnecesssary activities. When we're lonely in a "hot" way, we look for something to save us; we look for a way out. We get this queasy feeling that we call loneliness, and our minds just go wild trying to come up with companions to save us from despair. That's called unnecessary activity. It's a way of keeping ourselves busy so we don't have to feel any pain. It could take the form of obsessively daydreaming of true romance, or turning a tidbit of gossip into the six o'clock news, or even going off by ourselves into the wilderness. The point is that in all these activities, we are seeking companionship in our usual, habitual way, using our same old repetitive ways of distancing ourselves from the demon loneliness. Could we just settle down and have some #Quote by Pema Chodron

#182. It's an irony of our times that men seeking peace must make war. #Quote by Mark Lawrence
Seeking quotes by Michael Frost
#183. It will place a high value on communal life, more open leadership structures, and the contribution of all the people of God. It will be radical in its attempts to embrace biblical mandates for the life of locally based faith communities without feeling as though it has to reconstruct the first-century church in every detail. We believe the missional church will be adventurous, playful, and surprising. Leonard Sweet has borrowed the term "chaordic" to describe the missional church's inclination toward chaos and improvisation within the constraints of broadly held biblical values. It will gather for sensual-experiential-participatory worship and be deeply concerned for matters of justice-seeking and mercy-bringing. It will strive for a type of unity-in-diversity as it celebrates individual differences and values uniqueness, while also placing a high premium on community. #Quote by Michael Frost
Seeking quotes by Vikram Joshi
#184. Soar above the worries of daily life and explore the other possibilities that abund. Knock and new doors will open. Find, and quench your thirst for seeking. #Quote by Vikram Joshi
Seeking quotes by Duo Duo
#185. Perhaps pondering words is also a form of seeking justice. If a monologue can invite a chorus, then perhaps it can speak for others as well. #Quote by Duo Duo
Seeking quotes by Howard Mittelmark
#186. The Puffer Fish: Wherein the author flaunts his vocabulary.

His father was IRA and his mother was Quebecois, and they had reliquished their mortal coils in the internecine conflagration that ended their conjoined separatist movement, IRA-Q. The appellation he was given by his progenitors was Ray O'Vaque ("Like the battery," he'd elucidate, with an adamantine stare that proscribed any mirth). In his years of incarceration, however, he had earned the sobriquet "Uncle Milty" for his piscine amatory habits.
He had been emancipated from the penitentiary for three weeks, and now his restless peregrinations had conveyed him to this liminal place, seeking compurgation in the permafrost of the hyperborean tundra, which was an apt analogue of the permafrost in his heart. He insinuated himself into the caravansary with nugatory expectations, which were confirmed by the exiguous provisions for comfort. But then the bartender looked up from laving the begrimed bar, his eyes growing luminous as he ejactulated, "Milt! #Quote by Howard Mittelmark

#187. He did not know that the child who had asked for yesterday was now seeking to own tomorrow. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Seeking quotes by Bianca Sparacino
#188. Do not convince yourself that your suffering was futile, that your scars are simply scars instead of stories. Do not keep your past suspended like an anchor in the back of your throat, for it is time to speak. I promise you - the voice you think is simply just a whisper, is actually made of brazen thunder. It will bellow through the bones of those who need it, it will clap within the veins of a seeking heart... #Quote by Bianca Sparacino
Seeking quotes by Eugenie Clark
#190. Not many appreciate the ultimate power and potential usefulness of basic knowledge accumulated by obscure, unseen investigators who, in a lifetime of intensive study, may never see any practical use for their findings but who go on seeking answers to the unknown without thought of financial or practical gain. #Quote by Eugenie Clark
Seeking quotes by Mother Teresa
#191. We are called to be contemplatives..by seeking the face of God in everything, everyone, everywhere, all the time ... #Quote by Mother Teresa
Seeking quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#192. Never stop doubting , never stop questioning, never ever assume you have all the answers. Having all the answers kills the question itself, renders it lifeless ... an d you too. Keep looking, keep seeking. Never, ever find it all. Because when you find it all, you deny that there is more. And there is never not more. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Seeking quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#193. I desire to establish a profound state of peacefulness, an imperturbable stillness of mind, an unconditioned mode of being that is free from mind contaminants of negative thoughts. I pray to undertake a productive emotional, intellectual, and spiritual journey seeking the highest level of personal realization that defines wholeness and finality. In stillness, a state of mental quietude, we enter the worldly womb of creativity. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Seeking quotes by Marvin H. McIntyre
#194. Another misconception is that desires are insatiable. Admittedly, for the small segment of society that is clinically deranged, this statement may not hold true. But for those seeking riches, pleasure, or power, too much of a good thing dulls the appetite." – Jeremy Lyons [Survival of the Fittest] #Quote by Marvin H. McIntyre
Seeking quotes by Anne Stuart
#195. He couldn't have known. The moonlight wasn't enough to illuminate the room, and the tears that spilled silently down her cheeks didn't touch him. But suddenly the kiss softened, the hands gentled on her, the lips coaxed and teased and healed. And without any more thought she was kissing him back, reaching for him with her mouth while her hands were held back, seeking him out with her tongue, calling him to her in the only way she could. #Quote by Anne Stuart
Seeking quotes by Michael Shermer
#196. Humans are pattern-seeking story-telling animals, and we are quite adept at telling stories about patterns, whether they exist or not. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Seeking quotes by William Wilberforce
#197. The instructive admonitions, "give an account of thy stewardship," - "occupy till I come;" are forgotten. Thus the generous and wakeful spirit of Christian Benevolence, seeking and finding every where occasions for its exercise, is exploded, and a system of decent selfishness is avowedly established in its stead; a system scarcely more to be abjured for its impiety, than to be abhorred for its cold insensibility to the opportunities of diffusing happiness. #Quote by William Wilberforce
Seeking quotes by Ann Voskamp
#198. The secret to joy is to keep seeking God where we doubt He is. #Quote by Ann Voskamp
Seeking quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#199. I had been conscious of depression and so I voiced to (Sec. Of War Stimson) my grave misgivings, first on the basis of my belief that Japan was already defeated and that dropping the bomb was completely unnecessary, and secondly because I thought that our country should avoid shocking world opinion by the use of a weapon whose employment was, I thought, no longer mandatory as a measure to save American lives. It was my belief that Japan was, at this very moment, seeking a way to surrender with a minimum loss of 'face.' #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Seeking quotes by Lebo Grand
#200. You want MORE because your life is seeking fuller expression. #Quote by Lebo Grand
