Situation quotes by Rickey Henderson
#1. When I was a little-leaguer, I was sort of famous for stealing bases - and it started only because my mom wanted to be sure where I was in the afternoons. Mom always used to say, "If you don't come home dirty, you didn't play a baseball game." So I always tried to get in a situation where I had to slide so that I could go home dirty. #Quote by Rickey Henderson
Situation quotes by Andrew Shaffer
#2. NOTE: In the rare situation a megatsunami washes a T. rex into your path, you won't be carrying a weapon large enough to hurt it. If it's intent on eating you, it will eat you. However, you will be killed by the coolest dinosaur ever. Most people go their whole lives without ever seeing a T. rex in person. Do you know how lucky you are? #Quote by Andrew Shaffer
Situation quotes by Beryl Dov
#3. The Unvarnished Truth
The asshole you're with,
the lousy situation you're in,
are the prices you've paid
for living a superficial life
with a shitty value system
up till now. #Quote by Beryl Dov
Situation quotes by J. Daniels
#4. The reality of my situation quickly crushes any false hope that could seep into my head and poison what I know to be certain #Quote by J. Daniels
Situation quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#5. I despise that he knows it and I don't. Makes him the better man for her in this situation. I want to be the better man for her in every situation. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Situation quotes by Don Rickles
#6. I cannot tell a joke. But I can do a situation, that it becomes a joke. #Quote by Don Rickles
Situation quotes by Aziz Ansari
#7. I'm in a situation with this girl that's as hopeless as overthrowing the Bush administration. #Quote by Aziz Ansari
Situation quotes by Georgette Heyer
#8. But the thing is that it has provided Mrs Scorrier with a pretext for saying what, I own, has quite sunk my spirits. She told me that Charlotte has a horror of *deformity*, which makes her wish that just now, when she is in a delicate situation, it might have been possible for Aubrey to visit friends. #Quote by Georgette Heyer
Situation quotes by Sabahattin Ali
#9. People can only get to know each other up to a point and then they make up the rest, until one day, seeing their mistake, they turn their backs on sadness and run away. Would this ever happen, if they stopped believing their dreams and made do with what was possible? If everyone accepted what was natural, then no one would suffer disappointment, no one would curse fate. We have every right to see our situation as pitiful, but we must confine our pity to ourselves. To pity another is to assume superiority and that is why we must never think we are superior to others, or that others are more unfortunate. #Quote by Sabahattin Ali
Situation quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#10. I have a theory about men like you, Jack."
That seemed to lighten his mood. He slid me an amused glance. "What is your theory, Ella?"
"It's about why you haven't committed to anyone yet. It's really a matter of efficient market dynamics. Most of the women you date are basically the same. You show them a good time, and then it's on to the next, leaving them to wonder why it didn't last. They don't realize that no one ever outperforms the market by offering the same thing everyone else is offering, no matter how well packaged. So the only thing that's going to change your situation is when something random and unexpected occurs. Something you haven't seen on the market before. Which is why you're going to end up with a woman who's completely different from what you and everyone else expects you to go for."
I saw him smile.
"What do you think?"
"I think you could talk the ears off a chicken," he said.
-Ella & Jack #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Situation quotes by Fredrika Bremer
#11. What a glorious new Scandinavia might not Minnesota become! Here the Swede would find again his clear, romantic lakes, the plains of Scane rich in corn, and the valleys of Norrland; here the Norwegian would find his rapid rivers ... The climate, the situation, the character of the scenery agrees with our people better than that of any other American States ... #Quote by Fredrika Bremer
Situation quotes by Anonymous
#12. Meanwhile, the Mosteks spent a frantic hour trying to comprehend the dire nature of Rece's situation. Then Dr. Sammut entered the waiting room and gave the worried parents a thumbs-up. Inside a plastic vial was the unbelievable item that had nearly taken Rece's life: a popcorn kernel that had been lodged in his left lung. Rece's condition was the result of a perfect storm. Months earlier, he had inhaled a kernel of popcorn, which became lodged in his right lung. This led to infections and breathing problems, including pneumonia. But his excessive coughing earlier that day had thrust the kernel from the right lung and propelled it into his left lung, where it unluckily blocked his airway. #Quote by Anonymous
Situation quotes by John Ortberg
#13. Your Mission starts where you are,
Not where you think you should be.
Sometimes we're tempted to think that our current position/job/situation is a barrier to our mission, but, in fact, it is where it starts. #Quote by John Ortberg
Situation quotes by Philip K. Dick
#15. Masochism is more widespread than we realize because it takes an attenuated form. The basic dynamism is as follows: a human being sees something bad which is coming as inevitable. There is no way he can halt the process; he is helpess. This sense of helplessness generates a need to gain some control over the impending pain -- any kind of control will do. This makes sense; the subjective feeling of helplessness is more painful than the impending misery. So the person seizes control over the situation in the only way open to him: he connives to bring on the impending misery; he hastens it. This activity on his part promotes the false impression that he enjoys pain. Not so. It is simply that he cannot any longer endure the helplessness or the supposed helplessness. But in the process of gaining control over the inevitable misery he becomes, automatically, anhedonic. Anhedonia sets in stealthily. Over the years it takes control of him. For example, he learns to defer gratification; this is a step in the dismal process of anhedonia. In learning to defer he gratification he experiences a sense of self-mastery; he has become stoic, disciplined; he does not give way to impulse. He has "control". Control over himself in terms of his impulses and control over the external situation. He is a controlled and controlling person. Pretty soon he has branched out and is controlling other people, as part of the situation. He becomes a manipulator. Of course, he is not conciousily aware of this #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Situation quotes by John Key
#16. Your personality as the prime minister feeds through to what you emphasise, and what you don't, how you'll handle a situation - whether you've got the combination of intelligence or instincts to adapt and to make good decisions. #Quote by John Key
Situation quotes by Norman Angell
#17. The vested interests-if we explain the situation by their influence-can only get the public to act as they wish by manipulating public opinion, by playing either upon the public's indifference, confusions, prejudices, pugnacities or fears. And the only way in which the power of the interests can be undermined and their maneuvers defeated is by bringing home to the public the danger of its indifference, the absurdity of its prejudices, or the hollowness of its fears; by showing that it is indifferent to danger where real danger exists; frightened by dangers which are nonexistent. #Quote by Norman Angell
Situation quotes by Gus Van Sant
#18. I hadn't made a big-budget film, and in Hollywood there's a sort of man and boys situation. You're a man, you make $80 million movies! As if it's harder to make an $80 million movie. Well, I guess businesswise it is because you have more executives to argue with. #Quote by Gus Van Sant
Situation quotes by Adam Yauch
#19. If I feel like I've done the best that I can or conducted myself in the most constructive way that I can in a situation, then I feel peace. #Quote by Adam Yauch
Situation quotes by Sarah MacLean
#20. They were forced to remember, however, when the
doors to the church opened, and half the aristocracy
poured out into the grey April morning, desperate and
finally, finally able to gossip about the most important part
of the double wedding - one missing bride - only to
discover the lady in question was not missing at all.
Indeed, she was right outside the church. In the arms of a
man to whom she was not affianced.
Ignoring the collective gasp of their audience, Cross
kissed the tip of her nose and rectified the situation. Jasper
Arlesey, Earl Harlow lowered himself to one knee and
in front of all the world - proposed to his brilliant,
bespectacled bluestocking. #Quote by Sarah MacLean
Situation quotes by Cassandra Clare
#21. The vampires start to close in. "shouldn't we stand back to back or something?" Clary said.
"What? Why?"
"I don't know. In movies that's what they do in this kind of ... situation."
Jace laughs, "You, you are the most-"
The most what?" Clary demands indignantly.
Jace: Nothing. This isn't a situation okay? I save that word for when things get really bad."
"Really bad? This isn't really bad? What do you want, a nuclear-"
The windows exploded inward in a shower of broken glass. Through the shattered windows came dozens of sleek shapes, four footed and low to the ground, their coats scattering moonlight and broken bits of glass.
Wolves.
"Now, this," said Jace, "is a situation #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Situation quotes by Kresley Cole
#22. Hours later Kaderin paced in the main cabin of the jet, furious over more things than she could process.
The first: because of the Lykae's stunt, she was being forced into this situation with Sebastian. And she'd left the diamonds. Silly Valkyrie.
The second: two of her half-sisters, her coven mates, had been wed, and she'd heard of it after the fact. They are so not getting gifts from me. Were her sisters that averse to her presence at weddings? Am I that dismal? #Quote by Kresley Cole
Situation quotes by C.S. Lewis
#23. War creates no absolutely new situation: it simply aggravates the permanent human situation so that we can no longer ignore it. Human life has always been lived on the edge of a precipice. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Situation quotes by Marion Cotillard
#24. I AM VERY MOVED BY SURVIVORS. BY PEOPLE WHO KNOW HOW TO OVERCOME A HANDICAP, A SITUATION, OR ANYTHING. VISITING THE HEARTS AND SOULS OF THOSE PEOPLE TEACHES ME A LOT ABOUT HUMANS AND HUMANITY. #Quote by Marion Cotillard
Situation quotes by Amy Matayo
#25. Say what you will about seeing the bright side in every situation, but sometimes there is no bright side. Sometimes the only thing to see is darkness for miles and miles with no way to find even a single glimmer of light. #Quote by Amy Matayo
Situation quotes by Sheila Heti
#26. Sholem [a painter] was saying that freedom, for him, is having the technical facility to be able to execute whatever he wants, just whatever image he has in his mind. But that's not freedom! That's control, or power. Whereas I think Margaux understands freedom to be the freedom to take risks, the freedom to do something bad or appear foolish. To not recognize that difference is a pretty big thing. [ ... ]
"It's like with improv," Misha said. "True improv is about surprising yourself
but most people won't improvise truthfully. They're afraid. What they do is pull from their bag of tricks. They take what they already know how to do and apply it to the present situation. But that's cheating! And cheating's bad for an artist. It's bad in life
but it's really bad in art." -p.20-1, How Should A Person Be #Quote by Sheila Heti
Situation quotes by Arlo Guthrie
#27. We live in an increasingly sophisticated world that makes it difficult to make simple comments on stuff. There are too many people on both sides of the border who are taking advantage of circumstances and the situation. #Quote by Arlo Guthrie
Situation quotes by Hillary Clinton
#28. I am 100 percent confident. This is a security review that was requested. It is being carried out. It will be resolved. But I have to add if there's going to be a security review about me, there's going to have to be security reviews about a lot of other people, including Republican office holders, because we've got this absurd situation of retroactive classifications. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Situation quotes by Lee L Jampolsky
#29. When we combine acceptance with self-responsibility we can then see that whenever we are in a painful or disturbing situation we have two choices: We can work compassionately to bring something positive to the situation or leave. However, the key is the mental stance that we make the choice from, and thus the first step is always accepting the moment without resistance. #Quote by Lee L Jampolsky
Situation quotes by Ron Baratono
#30. Staying on the kinder side of a situation even in our minds is a much calmer place. #Quote by Ron Baratono
Situation quotes by Dalai Lama
#31. Appreciate how rare and full of potential your situation is in this world, then take joy in it, and use it to your best advantage. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Situation quotes by Charles Guggenheim
#32. I think he was explicit that it was a slave labor situation, but I was not alarmed at that point, because there were so many tragedies involved in that war. That was the first time I had any indication that something was sort of strange. #Quote by Charles Guggenheim
Situation quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
#33. A point has been reached where the peoples of the Americas must take cognizance of growing ill-will, of marked trends toward aggression, of increasing armaments, of shortening tempers
a situation which has in it many of the elements that lead to the tragedy of general war ... Peace is threatened by those who seek selfish power. #Quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt
Situation quotes by Robert D. Hales
#34. Now is the time to become a disciple of Jesus Christ, which means accepting His invitation to 'come, follow me' (Luke 18:22). This is the decision we made in our premortal lives. Now we must make it again here in mortality, every day, in every situation by taking the Savior's name upon us, remembering His atoning sacrifice, and keeping His commandments. This we covenanted to do when we were baptized, and we have the opportunity to renew those covenants each week as we partake of the sacrament. #Quote by Robert D. Hales
Situation quotes by Alexandra Adornetto
#35. I honestly can't tell you. We've never had a situation like this before, "I admitted.
"So you being an angel doesn't meam ... " He hesitated.
"Doesn't mean I have an answer for everything," I concluded for him.
"I just assumed it would be one of the perks."
"Sadly, no. #Quote by Alexandra Adornetto
Situation quotes by Peyton Manning
#36. The attitude with which we approach the situation can determine our success or failure. #Quote by Peyton Manning
Situation quotes by Ethan Hawke
#37. I did this movie right after it about the life of Chet Baker. It's called Born to Be Blue. In that situation, there's a real clear character you're drawing on. It's a real person. It's really exciting and interesting to do the research to figure out how to make that a nuanced, three-dimensional human being. #Quote by Ethan Hawke
Situation quotes by Charles Le Gai Eaton
#38. So many ruins bear witness to good intentions which went astray, good intentions unenlightened by any glimmer of wisdom. To bring religion to the people is a fine and necessary undertaking, but this is not a situation in which the proposed end can be said to justify the means. The further people have drifted from the truth, the greater is the temptation to water down the truth, glossing over its less palatable aspects and, in short, allowing a policy of compromise to become one of adulteration. In this way it is hoped that the common man – if he can be found – will be encouraged to find a small corner in his busy life for religion without having to change his ways or to grapple with disturbing thoughts. It is a forlorn hope. Standing, as it were, at the pavement's edge with his tray of goods, the priest reduces the price until he is offering his wares for nothing: divine judgement is a myth, hell a wicked superstition, prayer less important than decent behaviour, and God himself dispensable in the last resort; and still the passers-by go their way, sorry over having to ignore such a nice man but with more important matters demanding their attention. And yet these matters with which they are most urgently concerned are, for so many of them, quicksands in which they feel themselves trapped. Had they been offered a real alternative, a rock firm-planted from the beginning of time, they might have been prepared to pay a high price. #Quote by Charles Le Gai Eaton
Situation quotes by Amy Dickinson
#39. This is a tough situation. But it is what it is, and time has an amazing way of knitting together solutions as long as everybody stays calm and resolves to be as gentle and patient as possible. #Quote by Amy Dickinson
Situation quotes by Jason Dufner
#40. I watch a lot of sports. One of the reasons I watch is to see how these guys handle pressure, how they respond to situations. #Quote by Jason Dufner
Situation quotes by Lauryn Hill
#41. Let's love ourselves, then we can't fail,
To make a better situation.
Tomorrow, our seeds will grow,
All we need is dedication! #Quote by Lauryn Hill
Situation quotes by Adam Smith
#42. The great source of both the misery and disorders of human life, seems to arise from over-rating the difference between one permanent situation and another. Avarice over-rates the difference between poverty and riches: ambition, that between a private and a public station: vain-glory, that between obscurity and extensive reputation. The person under the influence of any of those extravagant passions, is not only miserable in his actual situation, but is often disposed to disturb the peace of society, in order to arrive at that which he so foolishly admires. The slightest observation, however, might satisfy him, that, in all the ordinary situations of human life, a well-disposed mind may be equally calm, equally cheerful, and equally contented. Some of those situations may, no doubt, deserve to be preferred to others: but none of them can deserve to be pursued with that passionate ardour which drives us to violate the rules either of prudence or of justice; or to corrupt the future tranquillity of our minds, either by shame from the remembrance of our own folly, or by remorse from the horror of our own injustice. #Quote by Adam Smith
Situation quotes by Jacqueline Francis - Wanting To Remember, Trying To Forget
#43. Max."
It was a sharp whisper to reinstate the silence and Max did not know what kind of
acerbic retort waited on the other side of his stilted pause. Kevin had never snapped at
him before, but there was a part of him that thought it would happen today.
His brother turned to face him, his deep blue eyes lined with tears and burning with
anguish. "You're my brother," he said, his voice low and unsteady. "You already
know how I feel…and I know how you feel…so there's no need to talk about this.
And if you mention his name again, I'm gonna ask you leave."
Max nodded. That wasn't the verbal lashing he was expecting but it made him
understand his role in the situation. Kevin hadn't played video games all day for the
entertainment. He had done it for the distraction. And he hadn't allowed Max to sit in
his room for so long because he intended to open up. He had kept Max there because
he wanted the silent comfort, the pillar of strength only a brother could provide. - Kevin to Max #Quote by Jacqueline Francis - Wanting To Remember, Trying To Forget
Situation quotes by John Warner
#44. The very heart of being a sovereign nation is providing security of one's borders, of one's internal situation, and security against anyone attacking one's nation. That is the very heart of what I believe is sovereignty. #Quote by John Warner
Situation quotes by Asrie Budiasriati
#45. The art of reading, it occupies your mind no matter at any situation or mood you're in..bringing you to completely different world, the enchanting world of the characters..giving you the best feeling after reading it..the art of writing, it shows who you are, what are your real passions, what you've been through..inviting other people to see and experience your own world..hoping they have the best feeling that you have when writing it. As much as the feeling you always have when you read the books you've read before.. #Quote by Asrie Budiasriati
Situation quotes by Reza Aslan
#46. The west is very concerned and actually afraid because the media is not informing them. There are too many moderate Muslims who are trying to whitewash the fears and concerns of the West. It's time for us to face reality - nobody is against Muslims. When I'm speaking about this situation, it's about Islamic doctrine. Islamic doctrine promotes violence and hatred against non Muslims. 60% of the Koran is dedicated to cursing and spreading hatred and violence against non-Muslims who are called 'Kaffir'. #Quote by Reza Aslan
Situation quotes by Cassandra Clare
#47. There was a brief pause for them to evaluate the full horror of the situation. Magnus. personally, was in horror up to his elbows. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Situation quotes by Sergio De La Pava
#48. What was I supposed to do then I wondered. Was there even a supposed-to for this kind of situation? A situation when when I looked at my receding past everything seemed retrospectively marked by an extreme order and predictability yet all moments since seemed to obey, and promised to continue obeying, their own set of stochastic, undisclosed, and undiscoverable laws. Where I was fully aware of the pitfalls and folly of a finely-tuned narcissism but still the known universe seemed to bend and bend inexorably inward and towards me where it awaited my next move, supremely ready to react accordingly. And how I knew that decisions I would soon make or defer would have near-Sophoclean import and yet nonetheless it all seemed oddly irrelevant. #Quote by Sergio De La Pava
Situation quotes by Agnes Repplier
#49. Wit is artificial; humor is natural. Wit is accidental; humor is inevitable. Wit is born of conscious effort; humor, of the allotted ironies of fate. Wit can be expressed only in language; humor can be developed sufficiently in situation. #Quote by Agnes Repplier
Situation quotes by Sylvia Boorstein
#50. Being silent for me doesn't require being in a quiet place and it doesnt mean not saying words. It means, "receiving in a balanced, noncombative way what is happening." With or without words, the hope of my heart is that it will be able to relax and acknowledge the truth of my situation with compassion. #Quote by Sylvia Boorstein
Situation quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#51. The truth is that just as - biologically - males and females are never victims of one another but both victims of the species, so man and wife together undergo the oppression of an institution they did not create. If it is asserted that men oppress women, the husband is indignant; he feels that he is the one who is oppressed - and he is; but the fact is that it is the masculine code, it is the society developed by the males and in their interest, that has established woman's situation in a form that is at present a source of torment for both sexes. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Situation quotes by Austin Ligon
#52. Private-equity and hedge-fund guys typically come into a situation of mediocrity, where rapid change may result in a profit. #Quote by Austin Ligon
Situation quotes by Christy Whitman
#53. When we find ourselves living in a situation that looks good from the outside but no longer brings us inner joy, we can choose one of two paths: we can deny or repress our discontent and "shrink" ourselves so we continue to fit into a life that is too small or no longer serves us; or we can embrace the new direction our soul is urging us toward, and make the choice not to shrink, but to stretch. #Quote by Christy Whitman
Situation quotes by Jimmy Chamberlin
#54. After I left the Pumpkins, I went home and just sat around. I have a studio in my basement, and I found myself writing all these songs, just taking advantage of the relaxed situation. I wrote about 30 songs in about 30 days. #Quote by Jimmy Chamberlin
Situation quotes by Gabriela Isler
#55. I have a very balanced posture about the political situation in my country. #Quote by Gabriela Isler
Situation quotes by Robert Duvall
#56. I like the smell of toast. Coffee is okay, but I don't drink much coffee. But toast is a nice smell. You smell some toast coming from your kitchen in the morning, you know that you're involved in a domestic situation and the operation that's going on is pleasant. #Quote by Robert Duvall
Situation quotes by M. Russell Ballard
#57. But one thing is certain: the commandments have not changed. Let there be no mistake about that. Right is still right. Wrong is still wrong, no matter how cleverly cloaked in respectability or political correctness. We believe in chastity before marriage and fidelity ever after. That standard is an absolute standard of truth. It is neither subject to public opinion polls nor dependent upon situation or circumstance. There is no need to debate it or other gospel standards. #Quote by M. Russell Ballard
Situation quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#58. It may look as if the situation is creating the suffering, but ultimately this is not so - your resistance is. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Situation quotes by David Foster Wallace
#59. But if you've really learned how to think, how to pay attention ... it will actually be within your power to experience a crowded, loud, slow, consumer-hell-type situation as not only meaningful but sacred, on fire with the same force that lit the stars-compassion, love, the sub-surface unity of all things. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Situation quotes by Cynthia McKinney
#60. The situation in the United States is becoming more dire for average ordinary Americans and the last thing we need to do is to spend money on death, destruction and war. #Quote by Cynthia McKinney
Situation quotes by Roy Ayers
#61. Now I get exposure first with people directly in the clubs. This is a unique situation for me. #Quote by Roy Ayers
Situation quotes by Volker G. Fremuth
#62. Just because I insist on proof before I pass judgment does not mean I reject the possibility of guilt, but every situation deserves its due process! #Quote by Volker G. Fremuth
Situation quotes by Rajneesh
#63. Encounter every situation with your total consciousness, without any guilt. Enjoy music, enjoy food, enjoy love - enjoy everything that is natural. #Quote by Rajneesh
Situation quotes by Catherine Sanderson
#64. Isn't this more about how two people can read a situation in two completely different ways? I've been resisting the urge to build castles in the air, like I always do, and you just saw whatever it was that you wanted to see. #Quote by Catherine Sanderson
Situation quotes by Cassandra Clare
#65. You invited him into bed?" Simon demanded, looking shaken. "Ridiculous, isn't it?" said Jace. "We would never have all fit. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Situation quotes by Amit Ray
#66. Mindful leadership keeps you cool and energetic in any situation, so that you can make the best possible decisions. #Quote by Amit Ray
Situation quotes by Troy Gathers
#67. If any new situation alters your friendship that was never your friend. Life may change but friends of the heart do not. #Quote by Troy Gathers
Situation quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#68. Never suppose that in any possible situation or under any circumstances that it is best for you to do a dishonorable thing however slightly so it may appear to you ... Encourage all your virtuous dispositions, and exercise them whenever an opportunity arises, being assured that they will gain strength by exercise ... and that exercise will make them habitual ... #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Situation quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#69. And so in Moscow they began a systematic search, block by block. Someone had to be arrested everywhere. The slogan was: "We are going to bang our fist on the table so hard that the world will shake with terror!" It was to the Lubyanka, to the Butyrki, that the Black Marias, the passenger cars, the enclosed trucks, the open hansom cabs kept moving, even by day. There was a jam at the gates, a jam in the courtyard. They didn't have time to unload and register those they'd arrested. (And the same situation existed #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Situation quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#70. You will find the limit of strength with every new situation. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Situation quotes by Daniel Radcliffe
#71. I'm not clean or even vaguely pleasant to be around in a domestic situation. #Quote by Daniel Radcliffe
Situation quotes by John James
#72. If you write about the present it is very much more difficult to make things sound convincing. But writing about the past means that you are writing about a situation in which you know at least as much as anyone else. #Quote by John James
Situation quotes by Michael E. Reid
#73. Being a woman is an opportunity to be fearless and feminine, brave and beautiful, strong and sensitive all at once. As a woman you have the power to be the target and the missile in almost any situation or environment. #Quote by Michael E. Reid
Situation quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#74. Rumor forces us to act before we are ready, or ruins a situation before it becomes fully ripe. #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Situation quotes by Daniel Black
#75. Our body parts were the trademark, we believed, of a sacred, majestic people. Now the ugliness of our situation made us begin to loathe the body we'd once loved. It was a gradual occurrence at first, more a thought than a truth, but we knew that once planted, a seed soon reveals all that it bears. #Quote by Daniel Black
Situation quotes by Snoop Dogg
#76. The red carpet is a beautiful situation for people. I think everybody appreciates it and loves it and honors it. Nobody really acts a fool because they know this is a one-time thing. #Quote by Snoop Dogg
Situation quotes by Martin McGuinness
#77. I believed that, in a situation where the community that I came from were being treated like second- and third-class citizens, that I had a responsibility to fight back against it. And I don't apologise to anybody for having done that. I think it was the right thing to do. #Quote by Martin McGuinness
Situation quotes by Carroll Quigley
#78. Inflation, especially a slow steady rise in prices, encourages producers, because it means that they can commit themselves to costs of production on one price level and then, later, offer the finished product for sale at a somewhat higher price level. This situation encourages production because it gives confidence of an almost certain profit margin. #Quote by Carroll Quigley
Situation quotes by George Orwell
#79. For the rest, she grew used to the life that she was leading - used to the enormous sleepless nights, the cold, the dirt, the boredom, and the horrible communism of the Square. After a day or two she had ceased to feel even a flicker of surprise at her situation. She had come, like everyone about her, to accept this monstrous existence almost as though it were normal. The dazed, witless feeling that she had known on the way to the hopfields had come back upon her more strongly than before. It is the common effect of sleeplessness and still more of exposure. To live continuously in the open air, never going under a roof for more than an hour or two, blurs your perceptions like a strong light glaring in your eyes or a noise drumming in your ears. You act and plan and suffer, and yet all the while it is as though everything were a little out of focus, a little unreal. The world, inner and outer, grows dimmer till it reaches almost the vagueness of a dream. #Quote by George Orwell
Situation quotes by Kerri Walsh
#80. Every time I've gone to Brazil I've gotten sick upon return. You know, it's just a different situation there. And I take every precaution - eating cooked foods and staying away from tap water, brushing my teeth with bottled water - and yet I still manage to get sick. So I'm just going to stay on point, bring my probiotics. #Quote by Kerri Walsh
Situation quotes by Monica Furlong
#81. If envy was not such a tearing thing to feel it would be the most comic of sins. It is usually, if not always, based on a complete misunderstanding of another person's situation. #Quote by Monica Furlong
Situation quotes by Belle Aurora
#82. I don't think there's a life situation out there that doesn't have a Simpsons line attached to it. #Quote by Belle Aurora
Situation quotes by Debbie Ford
#83. With devotion at the center of your awareness, you don't have to refer to your past in order to make a choice of how to respond or react in any given situation. #Quote by Debbie Ford
Situation quotes by Brittany Bowe
#84. For me, I always think about keeping my upper body relaxed, my hips level, and my right side down on the turn. If I work on nailing those three things at every practice, I hope that by the time I get into a race situation I can stay completely focused on the task at hand, and the rest will happen naturally. #Quote by Brittany Bowe
Situation quotes by Doreen Virtue
#85. Take a moment to gather your thoughts about your situation and ask, "What would Love do?" Then channel that energy in your words and actions. #Quote by Doreen Virtue
Situation quotes by Bobby Jindal
#86. I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment. It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended. #Quote by Bobby Jindal
Situation quotes by Thaddeus Golas
#87. No matter what your spiritual condition is, no matter where you find yourself in the universe, your choice is always the same: to expand your awareness or contract it. #Quote by Thaddeus Golas
Situation quotes by Miranda Hart
#88. A PICNIC IS NOT AN ADVENTURE!
Excuse me, but at thirty-eight and over six foot, trying to sit cross-legged on the ground to eat a meal is a total adventure. Have you ever attempted to eat with a plastic knife and fork, off a paper plate, while balancing the plate on your knee? And in company? That's an adventure. I tried to cut into my pork pie and the knife broke, then my Scotch egg rolled off the plate and into some mud. What does one do in that situation? Wipe off the mud, and eat it anyway? Risky. I peeled off the meaty outside and ate the boiled egg. Result. And, once, on the beach, I sat down with fish and chips (not strictly a picnic, but still hardcore al fresco eating) and a seagull swooped down and took the whole fish from my box! It was terrifying. So don't you go telling me that picnics aren't an adventure, thanking you muchly. #Quote by Miranda Hart
Situation quotes by David McRaney
#89. Any extended period of negative emotions can lead to you giving in to despair and accepting your fate. If you remain alone for a long time, you will decide loneliness is a fact of life and pass up opportunities to hang out with people. The loss of control in any situation can lead to this state. #Quote by David McRaney
Situation quotes by Ba Jin
#90. Nor I, I don't think there could be a situation like that. Love is shining and righteous; there's nothing hidden about it. If a man 's heart is really ardent, how can he give the appearance of being cold and disinterested? #Quote by Ba Jin
Situation quotes by Bernard Hopkins
#91. If I'm in a situation where Duane Ford is one of the judges, I have to pick it up. #Quote by Bernard Hopkins
Situation quotes by Anne Perry
#92. The crossing sweeper, a boy of about eight or nine years, was still busily pushing manure out of the way to make a clean path for any pedestrian who wished to reach the other side. He seemed to be one of those cheerful souls willing to make the best out of any situation. His skimpy trousers stuck to his legs, his coat was too long for him and gaped around the neck, but his enormous cap seemed to keep most of the rain off his head, except for #Quote by Anne Perry
Situation quotes by Asne Seierstad
#93. As a woman, you accept the situation, adapt to it, and do your best, whereas men would choose violence. #Quote by Asne Seierstad
Situation quotes by Kathryn Schulz
#94. Surely, then, this was a situation that merited the high-minded if somewhat sneering riposte of John Maynard Keynes: When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir? #Quote by Kathryn Schulz
Situation quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#95. Wanting to change, to improve, a person's situation means offering him, for difficulties in which he is practiced and experienced, other difficulties that will find him perhaps even more bewildered. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Situation quotes by Steven Machat
#96. Marijuana allows one to take a breath and see the realities of a situation without the news beating their interpretation into our brains. Pot relaxes you. #Quote by Steven Machat
Situation quotes by Betty Friedan
#97. I didn't want to be in a situation where I was broader than the boys, which I was, in the academic world. #Quote by Betty Friedan
Situation quotes by Haruki Murakami
#98. Actually, I'm extremely dissatisfied with being who I am. It's nothing to do with my looks or abilities or status or any of that. It simply has to do with being me. The situation strikes me as grossly unfair. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Situation quotes by Kathryn Smith
#99. I'm a decade her senior. I was a friend of her father, and I'm sure she looks upon me like a benevolent uncle. Even if she didn't, I promised Charles I wouldn't lay a hand on her." The Earl of Marsden had been one of his dearest friends-practically his only friend. A promise to such a friend should not be easily broken.
Archer jerked back, disbelief coloring his angular features. "Why the hell did you do that?"
Grey shrugged. "He asked it of me."
Shaking his head, Archer exhaled a breath. "You never told me that before."
"I suppose I was ashamed." And hurt, even though he understood his friend only made the request to protect his only child from a man whose sexual conquests had resulted in his being marked for like. Were the situation reversed, Grey might have very well demanded the same promise. And despite being a libertine, he was a man of his word.
Archer stared at him for a long moment, elbow braced on the table, chin resting on his thumb as his index finger stroked his stubbled upper lip. "Devil take it, Grey. Charles Danvers was one cruel bugger."
A bitter smile curved Grey's lips at the insult to his late friend. "Quite. #Quote by Kathryn Smith
Situation quotes by John Dewey
#100. It is not truly realistic or scientific to take short views, to sacrifice the future to immediate pressure, to ignore facts and forces that are disagreeable and to magnify the enduring quality of whatever falls in with immediate desire. It is false that the evils of the situation arise from absence of ideals; they spring from wrong ideals. #Quote by John Dewey
Situation quotes by Stephen Richards
#101. That was the trouble with working the doors, too many crybabies; you were always in a 'no win' situation. #Quote by Stephen Richards
Situation quotes by Jamaica Kincaid
#102. In the past, the thought of being in my present situation had been a comfort, but now I did not even have this to look forward to, and so I lay down on my bed and dreamt I was eating a bowl of pink mullet and green figs cooked in coconut milk, and it had been cooked by my grandmother, which was why the taste of it pleased me so, for she was the person I liked best in all the world and those were the things I like best to eat also. #Quote by Jamaica Kincaid
Situation quotes by James Lafferty
#103. Although we hardly see each other off the set, Joy and I get along well when we do. As far as the marriage between Nathan and Haley, I think they are young and will see the reality of the situation eventually. #Quote by James Lafferty
Situation quotes by The Weeknd
#104. Staying in a hopeless and miserable situation doesn't make you loyal, it just makes you miserable. #Quote by The Weeknd
Situation quotes by David Lodge
#105. To some people, there is no noise on earth as exciting as the sound of three or four big fan-jet engines rising in pitch, as the plane they are sitting in swivels at the end of the runway and, straining against its brakes, prepares for takeoff. The very danger in the situation is inseparable from the exhilaration it yields. You are strapped into your seat now, there is no way back, you have delivered yourself into the power of modern technology. You might as well lie back and enjoy it. #Quote by David Lodge
Situation quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#106. It is a fact that one man can be deliriously happy in the exact situation that causes another man to wither from depression. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Situation quotes by Harlan Ellison
#107. The only thing worth writing about is people. People. Human beings. Men and women whose individuality must be created, line by line, insight by insight. If you do not do it, the story is a failure. [ ... ] There is no nobler chore in the universe than holding up the mirror of reality and turning it slightly, so we have a new and different perception of the commonplace, the everyday, the 'normal', the obvious. People are reflected in the glass. The fantasy situation into which you thrust them is the mirror itself. And what we are shown should illuminate and alter our perception of the world around us. Failing that, you have failed totally. #Quote by Harlan Ellison
Situation quotes by Alan Moore
#108. I enjoy putting my mind into different situations rather than my body. #Quote by Alan Moore
Situation quotes by Montgomery Clift
#109. The only line that's wrong in Shakespeare is 'holding a mirror up to nature.' You hold a magnifying glass up to nature. As an actor you just enlarge it enough so that your audience can identify with the situation. If it were a mirror, we would have no art. #Quote by Montgomery Clift
Situation quotes by Rashid Latif
#110. At the moment, we don't deserve international cricket in our country. The security situation is poor here. #Quote by Rashid Latif
Situation quotes by Abraham H. Maslow
#111. The needs for safety, belonging, love relations and for respect can be satisfied only by other people, i.e., only from outside the person. This means considerable dependence on the environment. A person in this dependent position cannot really be said to be governing himself, or in control of his own fate. He must be beholden to the sources of supply of needed gratifications. Their wishes, their whims, their rules and laws govern him and must be appeased lest he jeopardize his sources of supply. He must be, to an extent, "other-directed," and must be sensitive to other people's approval, affection and good will. This is the same as saying that he must adapt and adjust by being flexible and responsive and by changing himself to fit the external situation. He is the dependent variable; the environment is the fixed, independent variable. #Quote by Abraham H. Maslow
Situation quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#112. No people can more exactly interpret the inmost meaning of the present situation in Ireland than the American Negro. The scheme is simple. You knock a man down and then have him arrested for assault. You kill a man and then hang the corpse. #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
Situation quotes by Albert Bandura
#113. Persons who have a strong sense of efficacy deploy their attention and effort to the demands of the situation and are spurred by obstacles to greater effort. #Quote by Albert Bandura
Situation quotes by Jodi Picoult
#114. Your religion should help you make the decision if you find yourself in that situation, but the policy should exist for you to have the right to make it in the first place.

When you say you can't do something because your religion forbids it, that's a good thing. When you say I can't do something because YOUR religion forbids it, that's a problem. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Situation quotes by Judy Gold
#115. If I was married to a man, and I had the same life situation that I have, it's the perfect recipe for a sitcom. #Quote by Judy Gold
Situation quotes by Jimmy Carter
#116. The North Korean Communists are implacably pursuing their military buildup in defiance of the international trend toward rapprochement and of the stark reality of the Korean situation, as well as of the long-cherished aspiration of the 50 million Koreans. The North Koreans have already constructed a number of underground invasion tunnels across the Demilitarized Zone. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Situation quotes by Chip Heath
#117. What should a Pegasus person do in this situation? #Quote by Chip Heath
Situation quotes by Eduardo Paes
#118. In Rio we built a Center of Operations, a situation room that gathers information from municipal departments and allows us to manage and help decision-making. I can check the weather, the traffic and the location of city's waste collection trucks. Each of 4,000 buses in the city has a camera connected to the situation room. #Quote by Eduardo Paes
Situation quotes by Warren Farrell
#119. Male bashing is everywhere. It would be a mistake to view the current situation as another skirmish in the war between the sexes. Women have been doing the shooting, and men have been burying their heads in the sand, hoping the bullets will miss. #Quote by Warren Farrell
Situation quotes by Chris Voss
#120. And being "nice" in the form of feigned sympathy is often equally as unsuccessful. We live in an age that celebrates niceness under various names. We are exhorted to be nice and to respect people's feelings at all times and in every situation. But nice alone in the context of negotiation can backfire. Nice, employed as a ruse, is disingenuous and manipulative. #Quote by Chris Voss
Situation quotes by Jarod Kintz
#121. Today was so cold that the wind froze my words as I spoke them and they fell silently like snow. I tried to say I love you, but I'm afraid I just muddied up the situation. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Situation quotes by Robert Greene
#122. An emotional response to a situation is the single greatest barrier to power, a mistake that will cost you a lot more than any temporary satisfaction you might gain by expressing your feelings. #Quote by Robert Greene
Situation quotes by Alan A. Stone
#123. [A]ll mental disorders are in some sense passionate convictions about the situation of the self in the world. #Quote by Alan A. Stone
Situation quotes by Victoria Gray
#124. If you were mine, I'd never willingly put you in a situation where you'd be in danger. I'd lay my life on the line to protect you, not put you in harm's way while I sat tight and waited for you to come to me. #Quote by Victoria Gray
Situation quotes by Debbie Ford
#125. As you say goodbye to lingering disappointments and unattended grief, you will discover that every person, situation and painful incident comes bearing gifts. #Quote by Debbie Ford
Situation quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#126. Slowly but surely, the darkness revealed light; and as the dim light shine brighter, I was mentally, physically, and emotionally prepared to battle the raging storms and the unfair, distasteful barriers. When my bags were too heavy and weighing me down, the darkness taught me when to put them down and focus on me. It taught me when to let go and know I could not change the situation. Most importantly, the darkness taught me that I could work through my trying times and make the best of what I was given. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Situation quotes by Peter Singer
#127. In the past 20 years alone, it adds up to more death than were caused by all the civil and international wars adn government repression of the entire twentieth century, the century of Hitler and Stalin. How much would we give to prevent those horrors? Yet how little are we doing to prevent today's even larger toll and all the misery that it involves? I believe that if you read this book to the end, and look honestly and carefully at our situation, assessing both the facts and the ethical arguments, you will agree that we must act. #Quote by Peter Singer
Situation quotes by Frank Knight
#128. The possibility of saying anything about a thing rests on the assumption that it preserves its identity, or continues to be the same thing in the respect described, that it will behave in future situations as it has in past. #Quote by Frank Knight
Situation quotes by Polly Berrien Berends
#129. Once we begin to appreciate that the apparent destructiveness of the toddler in taking apart a flower or knocking down sand castles is in fact a constructive effort to understand unity, we are able to revise our view of the situation, moving from reprimand and prohibition to the intelligent channeling of his efforts and the fostering of discovery. #Quote by Polly Berrien Berends
Situation quotes by Deepak Chopra
#130. I will practice acceptance. Today I will accept people, situations, circumstances, and events as they occur. I will know that this moment is as it should be, because the whole universe is as it should be. I will not struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment. My acceptance is total and complete. I accept things as they are this moment, not as I wish they were. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Situation quotes by Istvan Aranyosi
#131. Evans-Pritchard's confession reveals the way the power advantage of the subject whose definition of a situation prevails in the larger social context (in this case the majority of the Azande) shapes the environment and behavioral constraints that impact the subject who, although does not define the situation the same way, has to behave according to the former subject's definition in order to obtain the needed resources (in this case Evans-Pritchard, who is interested in gaining knowledge of the social organization of the Azande). For Evans-Pritchard, while living among the Azande, the actual world is as if there were magical forces around, true oracles and evil witches, as his whole daily life is structured around those nonexistent entities. #Quote by Istvan Aranyosi
Situation quotes by James A. Murphy
#132. Advice is the easiest thing to give and often the hardest thing to receive. When you need it, and others are willing to give it, take as much as you can. When you receive it, appreciate it, use it, and apply what works for your situation ... . #Quote by James A. Murphy
Situation quotes by Clinton Anderson
#133. Horsemanship should be fun. By learning how to control your horse in any situation, your confidence will greatly increase. When you're confident, you can relax and enjoy your partnership. #Quote by Clinton Anderson
Situation quotes by Ken Keyes Jr.
#134. The love and peace of higher consciousness flow from just being - and enjoying it all. Anything you do will not be enough unless you feel fulfilled in just being. Usually we are not happy when we find doing whatever it is that we think we have to do. Doing creates expectations that your world and the people around you may or may not fit. The things we do disappear in time. We must learn to appreciate just being alive in the nowness of whatever situation we are in. #Quote by Ken Keyes Jr.
Situation quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#135. When you find inner peace, neither the presence nor absence of any person, place or thing, condition, circumstance, or situation can be the Creator of your state of mind or the cause of your experience of being. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Situation quotes by Stefan Molyneux
#136. To be exploited fundamentally means to be confused. When you're not confused you can't be exploited because you have clarity about the situation. To confuse people you must provide contradictory information. People who really want to do you harm will provide you confusing measures of good and bad feedback because that keeps you disorientated. Evil always want to camouflage itself as virtue witch means all the bad things that evil does is called justice against immorality. So they camouflage their brutality as a mask of virtue. Camouflage is so fundamentally an aspect of the predator-prey relationships.

The mugger does not camouflage himself but, that's because he can leave. He is gonna run off and you'll never find him or catch him or at least that's the goal or plan right? The relationships were you're supposed to stay and continue to provide resources are the ones were camouflage is the most essential because you're constantly looking at somebody who is a predator and that have to continually camouflage themselves as somebody who is not a predator. The most fundamental thing is the camouflage of non-empathy with empathy. This is why people who lack empathy always use the language of empathy and that's whats so confusing.

There are a lot of great antidotes to this. I mean, you just ask that person questions about yourself that they dont have any self interest in knowing and find out whether they know the answers. All the things personal to you that don #Quote by Stefan Molyneux

Situation quotes by Morse Peckham
#139. It must be recognized that an ideology is always out of phase with the situation in which it is employed, for an ideology has always emerged as a response to a preceding situation, the attributes of which are different from the current situation. #Quote by Morse Peckham
Situation quotes by Pearl S. Buck
#140. Too many escape into complexity these days. For it is an escape for persons to cry, when this question of the equality of peoples is raised in India or in our own South, 'Ah, but the situation is not so simple.' ... no great stride forward is ever made for the individual or for the human race unless the complex situation is reduced to one simple question and its simple answer. #Quote by Pearl S. Buck
Situation quotes by Bruce Lipton
#141. The implication is that this basic idea we have that we are controlled by our genes is false. It's an idea that turns us into victims. I'm saying we are the creators of our situation. The genes are merely the blueprints. We are the contractors, and we can adjust those blueprints. And we can even rewrite them. #Quote by Bruce Lipton
Situation quotes by Richard P. Feynman
#142. More was discovered about the electrical force. The natural interpretation
of electrical interaction is that two objects simply attract each other: plus against
minus. However, this was discovered to be an inadequate idea to represent it.
A more adequate representation of the situation is to say that the existence of the
positive charge, in some sense, distorts, or creates a "condition" in space, so that
when we put the negative charge in, it feels a force. This potentiality for produc-
ing a force is called an electric field. #Quote by Richard P. Feynman
Situation quotes by Will Durant
#143. We are tossed about by external causes in many ways, and like waves driven by contrary winds, we waver and are unconscious of the issue and our fate.' We think we are most ourselves when we are most passionate, whereas it is then we are most passive, caught in some ancestral torrent of impulse or feeling, and swept on to a precipitate reaction which meets only part of the situation because without thought only part of a situation can be perceived. #Quote by Will Durant
Situation quotes by Tim Sanders
#144. The next time you are filled with worry, try Carrier's strategy: 1. Define the worst case. Ask yourself honestly, What's the worst thing that can happen? Once you do that, you'll find that your imagination is getting the best of you. The reality is usually not that bad, once you clearly define it. It has the most power when it remains a mystery. 2. Accept it as survivable. Act as if the situation were a foregone conclusion, and let it go as a lesson to be learned. At the very least, admit that there will be some negative repercussions, regardless of your best efforts. 3. Make a goal out of beating the worst-case scenario. Develop a set of responses that can help you trim your losses and mitigate damages. #Quote by Tim Sanders
Situation quotes by Rodolfo Costa
#145. When you experience a negative circumstance or event, do not dwell on it. Be proactive - put your attention on what you need to do to bring the situation to a positive result. #Quote by Rodolfo Costa
Situation quotes by Sean Hannity
#146. We have a situation where we have a lawmaker here in California who says that if you spank the child, you spank them, you're going to go to jail for a year or you're going to pay a $1,000 fine. #Quote by Sean Hannity
Situation quotes by Robert M. Gates
#147. Self-discipline is central to the leadership of institutions and to reforming them. A favorite saying of mine is "Never miss a good chance to shut up." I won't tell you how many times in a congressional hearing I just wanted to scream. How often in the White House Situation Room I wanted to say, "That's the dumbest idea I ever heard." How often in a briefing at the CIA or the Pentagon I wanted to tell someone where to stick his PowerPoint slides. Senior leaders want to blow off steam-shout at people- all the time. But to be an effective leader, you have to suppress those urges. #Quote by Robert M. Gates
Situation quotes by Jarod Kintz
#148. If you don't know how to love, then any old robot or mechanical device would best suit your relationship style. In this situation, vacuum cleaners might make the best lovers. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Situation quotes by O. Hakan Palm
#149. I was overwhelmed with gratitude that such greatness and nobility survived in the most degraded situation. I felt that the eternal spirit, which exists in all people, could be accessible despite the circumstances. Maybe there was still hope for the world, if some could remain untouched and pure in the midst of all the insanity! I learned that the hope that the world will be a place where all people will love their neighbors as themselves is alive as long as there is one person alive practicing it on the earth. #Quote by O. Hakan Palm
Situation quotes by Amish Tripathi
#150. Sometimes one needs a little bit of faith when faced with a difficult situation. Rational answers don't always work. We also need a miracle. #Quote by Amish Tripathi
Situation quotes by Veronica Rossi
#151. I expected a dozen people packed into our cabin again but it's only her and Ben, the guy with the buzz cut and black glasses who looks like a young astronaut. Clean-cut and stupendously brilliant.

Cordero's not too far off. She's businesslike in her dark suit, but there's also a military assuredness to her actions. I get the feeling that when a situation takes a nosedive she knows where the emergency exits are and how to deploy the water slide. #Quote by Veronica Rossi
Situation quotes by Tammara Webber
#152. Some of us can begin to heal the damage people have done to us by escaping the situation, but some of us need more than that. Tattoos make statements that need to be made. Or hide things that are no one's business. Your scars are battle wounds, but you don't see them that way. Yet. #Quote by Tammara Webber
Situation quotes by Ezer Weizman
#153. We have a country that is in a very delicate situation. #Quote by Ezer Weizman
Situation quotes by Anthony Bloom
#154. There is absolutely no need to run after time to catch it. It does not run away from us, it runs towards us. Whether you are intent on the next minute coming your way, or whether you are completely unaware of it, it will come your way. The future, whatever you do about it, will become thepresent, and so there is no need to try to jump out of the present into the future. We can simply wait for it to be there, and in that respect we can … be completely stable [still] and yet move in time, because it is time that moves. You know the situation when you are in a car or on a train and you sit back, if you are not driving, and you look out of the window; you can read, you can think you can relax, and yet the train moves, and at a certain moment, what was the future, whether it is the next station or the last station to which you are going, will be present. #Quote by Anthony Bloom
Situation quotes by James Arthur Ray
#155. A person of power embraces challenges in complete gratitude. No matter the situation life may bring, discontent is never justified, rather all is experienced as an opportunity and a privilege to venture and grow. #Quote by James Arthur Ray
Situation quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#156. The misery that oppresses you lies not in your profession but in yourself! What man in the world would not find his situation intolerable if he chooses a craft, an art, indeed any form of life, without experiencing an inner calling? Whoever is born with a talent, or to a talent, must surely find in that the most pleasing of occupations! Everything on this earth has its difficult sides! Only some inner drive - pleasure, love - can help us overcome obstacles, prepare a path, and lift us out of the narrow circle in which others tread out their anguished, miserable existences! #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Situation quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#160. AT THE NEXT weekend's D&D game, Christine pulled Lincoln aside to ask about his situation at work. "Did you stop reading that woman's e-mail?" Christine asked. "No," Lincoln said, "but I didn't walk by her desk this week." Christine bit her lip and rocked the baby nervously. "I'm not sure that counts as progress. #Quote by Rainbow Rowell

Situation quotes by Franz Kafka
#162. Quite simple," said the chairman, "you haven't really come into contact with our authorities. All those contacts are merely apparent, but in your case, because of your ignorance of the situation here, you think they're real. As for the telephone: look, in my own house, though I certainly deal often with the authorities, there's no telephone. At inns and in places like that it may serve a useful purpose, along the lines, say, of an automated phonograph, but that's all. Have you ever telephoned here, you have? Well then, perhaps you can understand me. At the Castle the telephone seems to work extremely well; I've been told the telephones up there are in constant use, which of course greatly speeds up the work. Here on our local telephones we hear that constant telephoning as a murmuring and singing, you must have heard it too. Well, this murmuring and singing is the only true and reliable thing that the local telephones convey to us, everything else is deceptive. There is no separate telephone connection to the Castle and no switchboard to forward our calls; when anyone here calls the Castle, all the telephones in the lowest-level departments ring, or all would ring if the ringing mechanism on nearly all of them were not, and I know this for certain, disconnected. Now and then, though, an overtired official needs some diversion - especially late in the evening or at night - and turns on the ringing mechanism, then we get an answer, though an answer that's no more than a joke.

Situation quotes by Deeanne Gist
#164. Texas Rangers are men who cannot be stampeded. We walk into any situation and handle it without instruction from our commander. Sometimes we work as a unit, sometimes we work alone." He turned his attention to the jurors. "We preserve the law. We track down train and bank robbers. We subdue riots. We guard our borders. We'll follow an outlaw clear across the country if we need to. In my four years of service, I've traveled eighty-six thousand miles on horse, nineteen hundred on train, gone on two hundred thirty scouts, made two hundred seventeen arrests, returned five hundred six head of stolen cattle, assisted forty-three local sheriffs, guarded a half dozen jails, and spent more time on the trail than I have in my own bed. We've been around since before the Alamo, and" - he turned to Hood, impaling him with his stare - "we're touchy as a teased snake when riled, so I wouldn't recommend it. #Quote by Deeanne Gist
Situation quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#165. Being a humorist is not a voluntary thing. You can tell this because in a situation where saying a funny thing will cause a lot of trouble, a humorist will still say the funny thing. No matter how inappropriate. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Situation quotes by Graham Greene
#166. In a common situation, I suppose we all behave much alike and use the same words. #Quote by Graham Greene
Situation quotes by Marie Calloway
#167. I've never written about a situation involving real people that I haven't directly taken part in. I've never made things up about other people. None of my stories were written with ill-intent towards the other people in them, even though I doubt people will believe that about "Adrien Brody." #Quote by Marie Calloway
Situation quotes by Carol Shields
#168. This was during a period in my reading life when I was given to understand that "relating" to the fictional characters or situation was of prime importance, and so I read, I'm sorry to say, narrowly, frugally, unadventurously, as though I had no interest in the greater world and no desire to experience other cycles of thinking and being. This idea of "relating", or identifying, was encouraged by my teachers and even, I believe, by the critical theories of the day. Naive as it may sound, one read fiction in order to confirm the reality of one's experience. #Quote by Carol Shields
Situation quotes by Christine Feehan
#169. Okay, here's the plan. I'll keep telling you where the creature is, and you keep shooting while I pull Aidan into the car. Then we drive away as fast as we can and hope we leave it behind."
That is the worst plan I have ever heard. In spite of his dire situation, there was a hint of humor in Aidan's voice.
Stefan snorted aloud. "That is absolutely the worst plan I've ever heard. You aren't strong enough to get Aidan into the car. And we can't trade places, because you've probably never fired a gun in your life."
"Well, I don't hear anything brilliant from either one of you," she snapped indignantly. #Quote by Christine Feehan

#171. Besides finding a great place to stay, it's important for me to find at least one cultural destination to visit, other than that, I don't like to plan too much. I like to suss out the situation when I get on the ground and then go! #Quote by Megalyn Echikunwoke
Situation quotes by Coeur De Pirate
#172. I was trying to put myself in the situation of someone that was going through major loss. Losing someone to death or sickness, and having to go through life on your own afterwords. #Quote by Coeur De Pirate
Situation quotes by Roger Ailes
#173. I think it's because I'm unpredictable. I view every situation, every race, and every candidate differently I try not to rely on something that worked before. #Quote by Roger Ailes
Situation quotes by Dave Matthews
#174. I'm familiar with that feeling of silence that comes with a very imminent catastrophe, when you know you have absolutely no control over a situation. #Quote by Dave Matthews
Situation quotes by Kim Gandy
#175. We're talking about really vital services to people who are already in a terrible situation and really in need of emergency services

Situation quotes by Curtis Sittenfeld
#177. The big occurrences in life, the serious ones, have for me always been nearly impossible to recognize because they never feel big or serious. In the moment, you have to pee, your arm itches, or what people are saying strikes you as melodramatic or sentimental, and it's hard not to smirk. You have a sense of what this type of situation should be like - for one thing, all-consuming - and this isn't it. But then you look back, and it was that; it did happen. #Quote by Curtis Sittenfeld
Situation quotes by Daniel Craig
#178. At some point, life starts to pass you by and becomes about avoidance. I want to stay clear from that situation, because I don't like that. #Quote by Daniel Craig
Situation quotes by Jack Williamson
#179. Wendre had appealed to Horn as no woman ever had. She had a man's mind and a woman's heart. She was self-reliant, proud, courageous. She grasped the situation quickly, accepted the odds, and did what had to be done without complaining. This was no spoiled child of empire, no sheltered darling of an all-powerful father; this was a woman fit to stand and fight beside any barbarian from the restless marches, made for love and ready to battle for it. #Quote by Jack Williamson
Situation quotes by Michael Miklaucic
#180. Complex operations, in which agencies assume complementary roles and operate in close proximity-often with similar missions but conflicting mandates-accentuate these tensions. The tensions are evident in the processes of analyzing complex environments, planning for complex interventions, and implementing complex operations. Many reports and analyses forecast that these complex operations are precisely those that will demand our attention most in the indefinite future.

As essayist Barton and O'Connell note, our intelligence and understanding of the root cause of conflict, multiplicity of motivations and grievances, and disposition of actors is often inadequate. Moreover, the problems that complex operations are intended and implemented to address are convoluted, and often inscrutable. They exhibit many if not all the characteristics of "wicked problems," as enumerated by Rittel and Webber in 1973: they defy definitive formulations; any proposed solution or intervention causes the problem to mutate, so there is no second chance at a solution; every situation is unique; each wicked problem can be considered a symptom of another problem. As a result, policy objectives are often compound and ambiguous. The requirements of stability, for example, in Afghanistan today, may conflict with the requirements for democratic governance. Efforts to establish an equitable social contract may well exacerbate inter-communal tensions that can lead to violence. The rule of law, as we #Quote by Michael Miklaucic
Situation quotes by Brian Eno
#181. Except in a few cases like Music for Airports, which was a very clear case of noticing a niche [and] saying, "Okay, there's this situation in which people always play music, and nobody has written music for that situation so I'm going to." So, that was a very clear example of spotting a niche and working for it. I have done that occasionally. #Quote by Brian Eno
Situation quotes by Lydia Lunch
#182. Women are denied masturbation even more severely than men and that's another method of control-they're not taught to please themselves ... Most women-it takes them a while to warm up to the "situation" but once they get into it, I'm sure they're going to get just as hooked as-well, everyone I know is! #Quote by Lydia Lunch
Situation quotes by Michele Sinclair
#183. I'm offering to sacrifice myself into marriage! Of course,I was surprised by the idea,but to save my sisters and keep them in their homes,I have decided to agree.I will marry you," she finished, placing a possessive hand on Tyr's forearm.
Tyr's already wide grin grew even bigger. "I appreciate the offer, and while you are indeed a pretty little girl, marriage and I are never to be."
"But the king...I thought you had to..." Lily sputtered.
"Now,my friend here, Lord Anscombe, I believe he is eager to have a bride," Tyr said, pointing to Ranulf, who wasn't sure if he was amused, insulted, or bored. "Here is your groom. Lord Anscombe of Bassellmere."
Lily whipped around.Her eyes were the color of gray mist and had turned saucer size. Her surprise was genuine, but her next move shocked even Ranulf. Straightening,she took a sizable gulp and announced, "As I was saying, my lord. I am ready and willing to marry you."
Ranulf stole a glance at Edythe, who was ignoring the unfolding situation. Her focus was on Tyr and had been since he had made his nonmarital declaration. #Quote by Michele Sinclair
Situation quotes by Orson Scott Card
#184. No point in getting emotional about anything. Being emotional didn't help with survival. What mattered was to learn everything, analyze the situation, choose a course of action, and then move boldly. Know, think, choose, do. There was no place in that list for "feel." Not that Bean didn't have feelings. He simply refused to think about them or dwell on them or let them influence his decisions, when anything important was at stake. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Situation quotes by Iain M. Banks
#185. Unbelievable. I'm in a fucking Outside Context situation, the ship thought, and suddenly felt as stupid and dumb-struck as any muddy savage confronted with explosives or electricity. #Quote by Iain M. Banks
Situation quotes by Wilhelm Reich
#186. A living creature develops a destructive impulse when it wants to destroy a source of danger ... The original motive is not pleasure in destruction ... I destroy in a dangerous situation because I want to live and do not want to have any anxiety. In short, the impulse to destroy serves a primary biological will to live ... #Quote by Wilhelm Reich
Situation quotes by Kami Garcia
#187. You would be surprised what we are capable of when the situation warrants it #Quote by Kami Garcia
Situation quotes by Rufus Wainwright
#188. The song is about knowing the end result of every situation you're in, and being able to play it out in your mind and see it before it happens. It's about addiction, really, about knowing how it's all going to end up. In that sense, you're watching a movie of yourself all the time - and then you want out of that movie. #Quote by Rufus Wainwright
Situation quotes by Stormie O'martian
#189. Thank You, God, that You never forget me. You always remember me and my situation, and You never ignore my cries to You when I am in need. I praise You in the middle of the struggles I face, knowing that worshiping You is my greatest weapon against the enemy of my soul. Help me to not just survive the attacks of the enemy, but to push the enemy back and crush him. #Quote by Stormie O'martian

Situation quotes by Bayard Rustin
#191. For generations the status quo has been based on violence, with the Negro as victim. A few whites have managed to be liberal without feeling a direct threat to their social position. Now, as the Negroes reach the stage where they make specific, if minimum, demands, a new and revolutionary situation has developed. There is little middle ground on which to maneuver and few compromises that are possible. For the first time, the white liberals are forced to stand for racial justice or to repudiate the liberal principles which they have always wanted to believe in. #Quote by Bayard Rustin
Situation quotes by Chip Heath
#192. Big-picture, hands-off leadership isn't likely to work in a change situation, because the hardest part of change - the paralyzing part - is precisely in the details. #Quote by Chip Heath
Situation quotes by K.L. Clarke
#193. All of the struggles and difficult times have taught me lessons and made me who I now am. I realize that my emotions are a choice. I get to choose how I react to any given situation. If I find myself sad or angry, it is my choice how long I stay there or if I want to start to feel better. #Quote by K.L. Clarke
Situation quotes by Laurelin Paige
#194. Megan resumes darting her eyes back and forth between me and my sperm donor.

"So," she says after several seconds pass in silence. "Is someone going to fill me in?"

"There's nothing to fill," I say, then blush because I'm a bad liar and because Chase has been filling me quite well.

Apparently, he's also turned me into a pervert.

Megan narrows her eyes. "Are the two of you…?"

"No!" Chase and I say at once. Like that's not obvious.

"I'm helping Pop with his computer," I say in a rush, eager to make this situation seem anything other than what it is. Though, at this point, I'm not sure what it is. This morning's activities have had nothing at all to do with our contractual agreement.

"Ah. I see." Megan doesn't seem convinced, but she turns to her grandfather anyway, and says, "I told you Phil would help you with that, Pop."

"She's nicer than Phil," Pop says, nodding in my direction. "She's prettier than him, too." He winks as though he knows he's part of a cover-up.

And because I've completely fallen for this old man, I wink back. #Quote by Laurelin Paige
Situation quotes by Wilhelm Reich
#195. As bitter as it may be, the fact remains: It is the irresponsibleness of masses of people that lies at the basis of fascism of all countries, nations, and races, etc. Fascism is the result of man's distortion over thousands of years. It could have developed in any country or nation. It is not a character trait that is confined specifically to the Germans or Italians. It is manifest in every single individual of the world. The Austrian saying "Da kann man halt nix machen" expresses this fact just as the American saying "Let George do it." That this situation was brought about by a social development which goes back thousands of years does not alter the fact itself. It is man himself who is responsible and not "historical developments." It was the shifting of the responsibility from living man to "historical developments" that caused the downfall of the socialist freedom movements. However, the events of the past twenty years demand the responsibility of the working masses of people.

If we take "freedom" to mean first and foremost the responsibility of each individual to shape personal, occupational, and social existence in a rational way, then it can be said that there is no greater fear than the fear of the creation of general freedom. Unless this basic problem is given complete priority and solved, there will never be a freedom capable of lasting more than one or two generations. #Quote by Wilhelm Reich

Situation quotes by Richard P. Feynman
#197. By honest I don't mean that you only tell what's true. But you make clear the entire situation. You make clear all the information that is required for somebody else who is intelligent to make up their mind. #Quote by Richard P. Feynman
Situation quotes by Kimberly Giles
#198. You have probably worked your entire life to create a sense of identity around your job, your family, your hobbies, or your physical characteristics. But none of these is who you really are. You are not what you look like. You are not your family. You are not your job, income, or performance. You are not your current situation or the mistakes you have made. Mistakes are just locations on your journey; they have nothing to do with who you are, and neither does what you do or how successful you are.
You are bigger than all those things. You are much more than just a businessman or a mom or a student. You are a divine, irreplaceable, one-of-a-kind, amazing, loving, eternal being, and your value comes from that fact alone. You come from God, who is love, which to me would mean - you are love too. You have to be. And if you are love then nothing you do or don't do can change your value, because no matter what you do or how many mistakes you make, you are still YOU; you are still LOVE. You can't help it. You cannot be anything else. #Quote by Kimberly Giles

#199. Caring for an Alzheimer's patient is a situation that can utterly consume the lives and well-being of the people giving care, just as the disorder consumes its victims. #Quote by Leeza Gibbons
Situation quotes by Kevin Hearne
#200. Wooo!' he said, slamming his shot glass down and coughing a bit. 'That's good stuff.'
I agreed heartily. 'Shall we do another one?' I asked.
'Oh no,' Jesus said quietly, his eyes growing round. 'This is one of those situations where I have to stop and ask myself, what would I do? #Quote by Kevin Hearne
