Shoves Objects quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#1. In one way an arrow moves, in another way the mind. The mind indeed, both when it exercises caution and when it is employed about inquiry, moves straight onward not the less, and to its object. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Shoves Objects quotes by Anthony Dunne
#2. Critical design can never be truly popular, and that is the fundamental problem. Objects that are critical of industry's agenda are unlikely to be funded by industry. #Quote by Anthony Dunne
Shoves Objects quotes by Italo Calvino
#3. If I were to draw, I would apply myself only to studying the form of inanimate objects, I said somewhat imperiously, because I wanted to change the subjects and also because a natural inclination does truly lead me to recognise my moods in the motionless suffering of things. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Shoves Objects quotes by Marquis De Sade
#4. If the objects who serve us feel ecstacy, they are much more often concerned with themselves than with us, and our own enjoyment is consequently impaired. The idea of seeing another person experience the same pleasure reduces one to a kind of equality which spoils the unutterable charms that come from despotism. #Quote by Marquis De Sade
Shoves Objects quotes by Sheridan Hay
#5. It was ugly, but then ugly objects as a general rule are the bravest. #Quote by Sheridan Hay
Shoves Objects quotes by Samuel Johnson
#6. Among the innumerable mortifications which waylay human arrogance on every side may well be reckoned our ignorance of the most common objects and effects, a defect of which we become more sensible by every attempt to supply it. Vulgar and inactive minds confound familiarity with knowledge and conceive themselves informed of the whole nature of things when they are shown their form or told their use; but the speculatist, who is not content with superficial views, harasses himself with fruitless curiosity, and still, as he inquires more, perceives only that he knows less. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Shoves Objects quotes by Edmund Burke
#7. Whatever is fitted in any sort to excite the ideas of pain, and danger, that is to say, whatever is in any sort terrible, or is conversant about terrible objects, or operates in a manner analogous to terror, is a source of the sublime; that is, it is productive of the strongest emotion which the mind is capable of feeling ... When danger or pain press too nearly, they are incapable of giving any delight, and [yet] with certain modifications, they may be, and they are delightful, as we every day experience. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Shoves Objects quotes by Sarah Fielding
#8. [Allegory] is a flight by which the human wit attempts at one and the same time to investigate two objects, and consequently is fitted only to the most exalted geniuses. #Quote by Sarah Fielding
Shoves Objects quotes by Mike Berenstain
#9. Parents sometimes object to the amount of humor introduced into stories that are designed to teach moral or spiritual lessons. They seem to think that simple grim lecturing of children is the best way to achieve such goals. #Quote by Mike Berenstain
Shoves Objects quotes by Harriet Martineau
#10. A Queen, or a Prime Minister's secretary may be shot at in London, as we know; and probably there is no person eminent in literature or otherwise who has not been the object of some infirm brain or another. But in America the evil is sadly common. #Quote by Harriet Martineau
Shoves Objects quotes by Gaston Bachelard
#11. Empirical description involves enslavement to the object by decreeing passivity on the part of the subject. #Quote by Gaston Bachelard
Shoves Objects quotes by C.S. Lewis
#12. It is easy to think that the Church has a lot of different objects - education, building, missions, holding services. Just as it is easy to think the State has a lot of different objects - military, political, economic, and what not. But in a way things are much simpler than that. The State exists simply to promote and to protect the ordinary happiness of human beings in this life. A husband and wife chatting over a fire, a couple of friends having a game of darts in a pub, a man reading a book in his own room or digging in his own garden - that is what the State is there for. And unless they are helping to increase and prolong and protect such moments, all the laws, parliaments, armies, courts, police, economics, etc., are simply a waste of time. In the same way the Church exists for nothing else but to draw men into Christ, to make them little Christs. If they are not doing that, all the cathedrals, clergy, missions, sermons, even the Bible itself, are simply a waste of time. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Shoves Objects quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#13. And thus, as a closer and still closer intimacy admitted me more unreservedly into recesses if his spirit, the more bitterly did I perceive the futility of all attempt at cheering a mind from which darkness, as if an inherent positive quality, poured forth upon all objects of the moral and physical universe in one unceasing radiation of gloom. #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Shoves Objects quotes by Stephen King
#14. The object of fiction isn't grammatical correctness but to make the reader welcome and then tell a story ... Writing is seduction. Good talk is part of seduction. #Quote by Stephen King
Shoves Objects quotes by Mark Shand
#15. My flat is a bit like an oriental bazaar. It's filled with the oddest objects from all my travels, and you can't really move in it. I love collecting antiques and often spend weekends driving around bric-a-brac markets. #Quote by Mark Shand
Shoves Objects quotes by Martin Puryear
#16. I'm interested in vernacular cultures, where people lived a little closer to the source of materials and the making of objects for use. And for me, not to rely strictly on the history of art has always been an interesting process, to be looking into areas that we call craft and trades. #Quote by Martin Puryear
Shoves Objects quotes by Rudger Clawson
#17. The greater the value of the object desired, the greater the effort required in it attainment. #Quote by Rudger Clawson
Shoves Objects quotes by Rachna Singh
#18. During evolutionary times, men had to withhold displaying emotions to be able to guard their families and hunt. The tables have turned: today, the same is causing them to get hit on their heads with objects such as pillows and TV remote controls. #Quote by Rachna Singh
Shoves Objects quotes by Zoro
#19. When the world shoves you around, you just gotta stand up and shove back. It's not like somebody's gonna save you if you start babbling excuses. #Quote by Zoro
Shoves Objects quotes by John Berger
#20. Every relation between forms in a painting is to some degree adaptable to the painter's purpose. This is not the case with photography. Composition in the profound, formative sense of the word cannot enter into photography. The true content of a photograph is invisible, for it derives from a play, not with form, but with time. One might argue that photography is as close to music as to painting. I have said that a photograph bears witness to a human choice being exercised. The choice is not between photographing X and Y: but between photographing at X moment or at Y moment. The objects recorded in any photograph (from the most effective to the most commonplace) carry approximately the same weight, the same conviction. What varies is the intensity with which we are made aware of the poles of absence and presence. A photograph, while recording what has been seen, always and by its nature refers to what is not seen. It isolates, preserves, and presents a moment taken from a continuum. The only decision (the still photographer) can take is as regards the moment he chooses to isolate. Yet this apparent limitation gives the photograph its unique power. The immediate relation between what is present and what is absent is particular to each photograph: it may be that of ice to sun, of grief to tragedy, of a smile to a pleasure, of a body to love, of a winning race-horse to the race it has run. #Quote by John Berger
Shoves Objects quotes by Italo Calvino
#21. Who are we, who is each one of us, if not a combinatoria of experiences, information, books we have read, things imagined? #Quote by Italo Calvino
Shoves Objects quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#22. In some exquisite critical hints on "Eurythmy," Goethe remarks, "that the best composition in pictures is that which, observing the most delicate laws of harmony, so arranges the objects that they by their position tell their own story." And the rule thus applied to composition in painting applies no less to composition in literature. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Shoves Objects quotes by James Madison
#23. I own myself the friend to a very free system of commerce, and hold it as a truth, that commercial shackles are generally unjust, oppressive and impolitic - it is also a truth, that if industry and labour are left to take their own course, they will generally be directed to those objects which are the most productive, and this in a more certain and direct manner than the wisdom of the most enlightened legislature could point out. #Quote by James Madison
Shoves Objects quotes by Kim Hyesoon
#24. As a sick kid, I always looked out the window. The objects of my observation were the sun, the seasons, the wind, crazy people, and my grandfather's death. During my long period of observation, I felt that something like poems were filling up my body. #Quote by Kim Hyesoon
Shoves Objects quotes by John Maynard Keynes
#25. Nor should the argument seem strange that taxation may be so high as to defeat its object, and that, given sufficient time to gather the fruits, a reduction of taxation will run a better chance than an increase of balancing the budget. #Quote by John Maynard Keynes
Shoves Objects quotes by Samuel Johnson
#26. He that would travel for the entertainment of others, should remember that the great object of remark is human life. Every nation has something peculiar in its manufactures, its works of genius, its medicines, its agriculture, its customs, and its policy. He only is a useful traveller, who brings home something by which his country might be benefitted; who procures some supply of want, or some mitigation of evil, which may enable his readers to compare their condition with that of others, to improve it whenever it is worse, and whenever it is better to enjoy it. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Shoves Objects quotes by Thomas L. Friedman
#27. You can be a rich person alone. You can be a smart person alone. But you cannot be a complete person alone. For that you must be part of, and rooted in, an olive grove. This truth was once beautifully conveyed by Rabbi Harold S. Kushner in his interpretation of a scene from Gabriel García Márquez's classic novel One Hundred Years of Solitude: Márquez tells of a village where people were afflicted with a strange plague of forgetfulness, a kind of contagious amnesia. Starting with the oldest inhabitants and working its way through the population, the plague causes people to forget the names of even the most common everyday objects. One young man, still unaffected, tries to limit the damage by putting labels on everything. "This is a table," "This is a window," "This is a cow; it has to be milked every morning." And at the entrance to the town, on the main road, he puts up two large signs. One reads "The name of our village is Macondo," and the larger one reads "God exists." The message I get from that story is that we can, and probably will, forget most of what we have learned in life - the math, the history, the chemical formulas, the address and phone number of the first house we lived in when we got married - and all that forgetting will do us no harm. But if we forget whom we belong to, and if we forget that there is a God, something profoundly human in us will be lost. #Quote by Thomas L. Friedman
Shoves Objects quotes by John Sexton
#28. When the object that is produced, the photographic image has the ability to make tears come to your eyes; to inspire you to the point where you have to catch your breath, then nothing else matters. #Quote by John Sexton
Shoves Objects quotes by Karl Marx
#29. Under private property, each tries to establish over the other an alien power, so as thereby to find satisfaction of his own selfish need. The increase in the quantity of objects is therefore accompanied by an extension of the realm of the alien powers to which man is subjected, and every new product represents a new potentiality of mutual swindling and mutual plundering. #Quote by Karl Marx
Shoves Objects quotes by Frederick Lenz
#30. You're going to go to stillness. When that happens, the world collapses. There is no time, no space, no viewer, no viewing, no object in view. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Shoves Objects quotes by Willard Van Orman Quine
#31. Physical objects are conceptually imported into the situation as convenient intermediaries not by definition in terms of experience, but simply as irreducible posits comparable, epistemologically, to the gods of Homer ... For my part I do, qua lay physicist, believe in physical objects and not in Homer's gods; and I consider it a scientific error to believe otherwise. But in point of epistemological footing, the physical objects and the gods differ only in degree and not in kind. Both sorts of entities enter our conceptions only as cultural posits. #Quote by Willard Van Orman Quine
Shoves Objects quotes by Karl Popper
#32. It is often asserted that, in view of the situation in quantum theory, object and subject can no longer be sharply separated. 1 To use Heitler's words, the 'separation of the world into an "objective outside reality", and "us", the self-conscious onlookers, can no longer be maintained. Object and subject become inseparable from each other'. 2 This, according to Bohr, is due to 'the impossibility of any sharp separation between the behaviour of atomic objects and the interaction with the measuring instruments which serve to define the conditions under which the phenomena appear'. 3 Heitler elaborates the point in some detail. 'One may ask', he writes, 'if it is sufficient to carry out a measurement by a self-registering apparatus or whether the presence of an observer is required.' And he arrives at the conclusion that the self-registering apparatus is insufficient, and that 'the observer appears, as a necessary part of the whole structure, and in his full capacity as a conscious being'. #Quote by Karl Popper
Shoves Objects quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#33. All human life, we may say, consists solely of these two activities: (1) bringing one's activities into harmony with conscience, or (2) hiding from oneself the indications of conscience in order to be able to continue to live as before.

Some do the first, others the second. To attain the first there is but one means: moral enlightenment - the increase of light in oneself and attention to what it shows. To attain the second - to hide from oneself the indications of conscience - there are two means: one external and the other internal. The external means consists in occupations that divert one's attention from the indications given by conscience; the internal method consists in darkening conscience itself.

As a man has two ways of avoiding seeing an object that is before him: either by diverting his sight to other more striking objects, or by obstructing the sight of his own eyes - just so a man can hide from himself the indications of conscience in two ways: either by the external method of diverting his attention to various occupations, cares, amusements, or games; or by the internal method of obstructing the organ of attention itself. For people of dull, limited moral feeling, the external diversions are often quite sufficient to enable them not to perceive the indications conscience gives of the wrongness of their lives. But for morally sensitive people those means are often insufficient.

The external means do not quite divert attention #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Shoves Objects quotes by Napoleon Hill
#34. First. I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my Definite Purpose in life, therefore, I demand of myself persistent, continuous action toward its attainment, and I here and now promise to render such action. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Shoves Objects quotes by Bradley Joseph
#35. I am a composer first and foremost, and have always believed that being able to write memorable melodies is what sets musicians apart. My songs bring images to the listener's mind. The object is to transport my listeners to another place, some place sacred and spiritual that will make them glad they took the ride. #Quote by Bradley Joseph
Shoves Objects quotes by Rumi
#36. No better love than love with no object #Quote by Rumi
Shoves Objects quotes by James J. Gibson
#37. There has been a great gulf in psychological thought between the perception of space and objects on one hand and the perception of meaning on the other. #Quote by James J. Gibson
Shoves Objects quotes by Robert Heinecken
#38. Many pictures turn out to be limp translations of the known world instead of vital objects which create an intrinsic world of their own. There is a vast difference between taking a picture and making a photograph. #Quote by Robert Heinecken
Shoves Objects quotes by Lemuel Arthur Pittenger
#39. our ancestors have told stories of war, love, mysteries, and the miraculous performances of lower animals and inanimate objects. #Quote by Lemuel Arthur Pittenger
Shoves Objects quotes by Ada Lovelace
#40. The Analytical Engine] might act upon other things besides number, were objects found whose mutual fundamental relations could be expressed by those of the abstract science of operations, and which should be also susceptible of adaptations to the action of the operating notation and mechanism of the engine ... Supposing, for instance, that the fundamental relations of pitched sounds in the science of harmony and of musical composition were susceptible of such expression and adaptations, the engine might compose elaborate and scientific pieces of music of any degree of complexity or extent. #Quote by Ada Lovelace
Shoves Objects quotes by Sergei Prokofiev
#41. I strenuously object to the very word "grotesque" which has become hackneyed to the point of nausea ... I would prefer my music to be described as "Scherzo-ish" in quality, or else by three words describing the various degrees of the Scherzo - whimsicality, laughter, mockery. #Quote by Sergei Prokofiev
Shoves Objects quotes by Emile M. Cioran
#42. Does our ferocity not derive from the fact that our instincts are all too interested in other people? If we attended more to ourselves and became the center, the object of our murderous inclinations, the sum of our intolerances would diminish. #Quote by Emile M. Cioran
