Status Quo quotes by Lisa Kemmerer
#1. You ultimately decide, every day, whether or not your life will speak on behalf of the oppressed, or remain an inaudible but decisive tool for the status quo. #Quote by Lisa Kemmerer
Status Quo quotes by Seth Godin
#2. Heretics must believe. More than anyone else in an organization, it's the person who's challenging the status quo, the one who is daring to be great, who is truly present and not just punching a clock who must have confidence in her beliefs.
Can you imagine Steve Jobs showing up for the paycheck? It's nice to get paid. It's essential to believe. #Quote by Seth Godin
Status Quo quotes by Tim Butcher
#3. The statesmen leaving the Berlin Congress smugly convinced themselves that the people of Bosnia would benefit from the diplomatic finesse of having the Western Austro-Hungarians replace the Eastern Ottomans. What they had actually done, however, was quite the opposite, sowing seeds of resentment that would eventually destroy the status quo of the entire Western world. #Quote by Tim Butcher
Status Quo quotes by Anita Sarkeesian
#4. There is a clear difference between sexist parody and parody of sexism. Sexist parody encourages the players to mock and trivialize gender issues while parody of sexism disrupts the status quo and undermines regressive gender conventions. #Quote by Anita Sarkeesian
Status Quo quotes by Pearl Zhu
#5. Dissatisfaction with status quo is the psychology behind creative disruptions. #Quote by Pearl Zhu

Status Quo quotes by E.J. Dionne Jr.
#7. At the heart of my argument is the view that religious faith, far from being inevitably on the side of the status quo, should on principle hold this world to higher standards. #Quote by E.J. Dionne Jr.

#8. Hillary Clinton wants a new title, and I would, too, if I already was secretary of the status quo. #Quote by Mike Pence
Status Quo quotes by Chuck D
#9. Rap comes from the humble beginnings of rebelling against the status quo. Now, rappers have become the status quo themselves. You can't rebel against the Queen and then become the Queen yourself. I attribute much of the blame to testosterone-male dominance and patriarchy. #Quote by Chuck D
Status Quo quotes by Saul D. Alinsky
#10. The history of prevailing status quos shows decay and decadence infecting the opulent materialism of the Haves. The spiritual life of the Haves is a ritualistic justification of their possessions. #Quote by Saul D. Alinsky

#11. Nothing great is accomplished by those who are intent on maintaining the status quo. #Quote by Steve W. Raimo

Status Quo quotes by Bayard Rustin
#16. 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
Status Quo quotes by Ronnie Chan
#17. You need strong leadership to effectuate change, and the easiest way is to keep everything status quo. And sometimes changes are necessary. If not, you build up too much potential energy. #Quote by Ronnie Chan
Status Quo quotes by Donald Miller
#18. The principle that characters do not want to change applies to more than just fiction. #Quote by Donald Miller
Status Quo quotes by Salman Khan
#19. Entire industries and some of our very largest professions depend on the persistence of our current system. Other social institutions - like giant publishers and test-prep companies - are synched to its workings. A certain teaching method implies certain goals and certain tests. The tests, in turn, have a serious impact on hiring practices and career advancement. Human nature being what it is, those who prosper under a given system tend to become supporters of that system. Thus the powerful tend to have a bias toward the status quo; our educational customs tend to perpetuate themselves, and because they interconnect with so many other aspects of our culture, they are extraordinarily difficult to change. #Quote by Salman Khan
Status Quo quotes by Manly Hall
#20. To repress rebellion is to maintain the status quo, a condition which binds the mortal creature in a state of intellectual or physical slavery. But it is impossible to chain man merely by slaving his body; the mind also must be held, and to accomplish this, fear is the accepted weapon. The common man must fear life, fear death, fear God, fear the Devil, and fear most the overlords, the keepers of his destiny. #Quote by Manly Hall
Status Quo quotes by Junius Williams
#21. In any organization of which I have played a leadership role, our trump card has never been great numbers but the way we worked with neighborhood people in conjunction with professionals in suits and ties. I want the Obama generation to try to understand this concept, and use it as a real yardstick for their ability to make change. My life personifies the straddling of two cultures: the world of Amherst and Yale and the world of Newark, New Jersey. As you will see, it is the power of the streets combined with the power of the suites that is the most effective mix for making things happen. Anybody who comes to you and says "we want change," without addressing the intersection of these two powerful forces in combination, is just whistling status quo. #Quote by Junius Williams
Status Quo quotes by Jello Biafra
#22. Punk was originally about creating new, important, energetic music that would hopefully threaten the status quo and the stupidity of the 1970s. #Quote by Jello Biafra
Status Quo quotes by Kerry Washington
#23. When you leave here today and commence the next stage of your life, you can follow someone else's script, try to make choices that will make other people happy, avoid discomfort, do what is expected, and copy the status quo. Or you can look at all that you have accomplished today and use it as fuel to venture forth and write your own story. If you do, amazing things will take shape. #Quote by Kerry Washington
Status Quo quotes by Saidiya Hartman
#24. No, Kropotkin never described black women's mutual aid societies or the chorus in Mutual Aid, although he imagined animal society in its rich varieties & the forms of cooperation & mutuality found among ants, monkeys & ruminants. Impossible, recalcitrant domestics weren't yet in his view or anyone else's. #Quote by Saidiya Hartman
Status Quo quotes by Michael Brewer
#25. It's an insidious twist of thought that leads one to demand women to give up their reproductive rights to force unwanted pregnancies but then, once birthed from the womb, to deny them access to basic necessities required for even a mediocre life like education, clean air, healthcare, and a fair wage. And these people have the audacity to call their position pro-life.

These same people who bemoan the welfare state, yet refuse to require business to honor a fair wage, appear to want to create the very circumstances that they ceaselessly complain about. I dare say that by perpetuating this condition, by feeding the apparatus of poverty, they are satiating their narcissism.

With poverty securely entrenched, these lucky few can sit back and smile with smug superiority. Because of course, they pulled themselves up by their bootstraps, they worked harder, and they have earned what they have. It's a meritocracy, they say, if only by merit of their parent's color of flesh or social standing.

So yes, let's churn out more children who will be unable to claw their way out of poverty, and if they just happen to defy the odds, let's brainwash them into believing this tripe called the American Dream so they will assist us as we throw their less fortunate fortunate siblings into the hungry machine of conservatism. Because we are really only interested in conserving the status quo. #Quote by Michael Brewer
Status Quo quotes by Jennifer James
#26. People who think in absolutes usually don't listen to anyone but themselves. They resist new ideas and try to preserve the status quo ... #Quote by Jennifer James
Status Quo quotes by Eleftherios Venizelos
#27. The European policy is invariably the maintenance of the status quo, and you will do nothing for the subject races unless we, by taking initiative, make you realize that helping us against the Turks is the lesser of the evils. #Quote by Eleftherios Venizelos
Status Quo quotes by Russell Brand
#28. The most potent tool in maintaining the status quo is our belief that change is impossible. #Quote by Russell Brand
Status Quo quotes by Nenia Campbell
#29. At first you might wonder what you did to deserve such treatment. Nothing, probably, so that doesn't matter. What matters is that, eventually, the abuse becomes the status quo. It's no longer about the whats and whys ("what did I do?" "why are they doing this?") but the whens and hows ("when are they going to do it?" "how are they going to get me?"). Persecution becomes inevitable, inescapable. And once you get into the victim mindset, you're fucked. The bullies don't even need to hurt you now; your poor, warped, pathetic brain is doing half the work for them. #Quote by Nenia Campbell
Status Quo quotes by Aatish Taseer
#30. But he did not say a thing. Of late, almost as if he had been brought into line with the way people now spoke of the Sikhs, he had come to dislike the sound of his dissenting voice. It made him feel like a bore and an activist; and, like many people who try to fight an emerging status quo, no matter how ugly it is, he felt himself subdued, not by arguments, but by its casual tyranny. It is easier to fight the knowing bigot than it is to fight prejudice in the mouth of a child or the throwaway remark of a society lady. #Quote by Aatish Taseer
Status Quo quotes by Peter Bevelin
#31. Trying to change our habits demands effort and effort takes energy - which is a cost. And our brains constantly look for ways to save effort. Furthermore, a change creates an uncomfortable feeling so naturally we try to avoid this feeling by not changing, That's why we take the easy way, favor shortcuts, and default options and stick to our habits. And the more emotional a decision is or the more choices we have, the more we prefer the status quo #Quote by Peter Bevelin
Status Quo quotes by John Rowland
#32. I'm excited about seeing a bipartisan plan to reform education in the United States. The only other option is to protect the status quo and I really don't think anybody wants to do that. #Quote by John Rowland
Status Quo quotes by Seth Godin
#33. 'Good enough' stopped being good enough a long time ago. so why not be great? #Quote by Seth Godin
Status Quo quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#34. Just because the question can be answered doesn't mean that anyone is obliged to answer it, or that it ought to be asked. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Status Quo quotes by Sinclair Lewis
#35. There's no stronger bulwark of sound conservatism than the evangelical church, and no better place to make friends who'll help you to gain your rightful place in the community than in your own church-home! #Quote by Sinclair Lewis
Status Quo quotes by Murray N. Rothbard
#36. There is no gainsaying the fact that this suggested program will strike most people as impossibly "radical" and "unrealistic"; any suggestion for changing the status quo, no matter how slight, can always be considered by someone as too radical, so that the only thoroughgoing escape from the charge of impracticality is never to advocate any change whatever in existing conditions. But to take this approach is to abandon human reason, and to drift in animal- or plant-like manner with the tide of events. #Quote by Murray N. Rothbard
Status Quo quotes by Tim Wise
#37. Tradition is, after all, what we make it. The definition of the term is simply this: "a story, belief, custom, or proverb handed down from generation to generation." There is nothing about the word that suggests tradition must be oppressive, or that it must necessarily serve to uphold the status quo. It is simply the narrative we tell ourselves, and as such, could just as easily involve resistance to oppression or injustice, as the perpetuation of the same. But if we aren't clear in articulating the alternative tradition, we can hardly be surprised when persons don't choose the direction in which it points, having never been appraised of its existence. #Quote by Tim Wise
Status Quo quotes by Laura Bates
#38. Intersectionality means being aware of and acting on the fact that different forms of prejudice are connected, because they all stem from the same root of being 'other', 'different' or somehow 'secondary' to the 'normal', 'ideal' status quo. #Quote by Laura Bates
Status Quo quotes by Al Gore
#39. The key.. will be a new public awareness of how serious is the threat to the global environment. Those who have a vested interest in the status quo will probably continue to be able to stifle any meaningful change until enough citizens.. are willing to speak out. #Quote by Al Gore
Status Quo quotes by Tony Curl
#40. Hope builds and creates dreams. Fear keep us firmly entrenched in the status quo #Quote by Tony Curl
Status Quo quotes by Steve Lacy
#41. Whoever has an original thing to say, it is sort of a threat to the status quo. #Quote by Steve Lacy
Status Quo quotes by Bill Price
#42. The most radical and far-reaching solutions often need rethinking of processes and deep questioning of the status quo-and these are hard. #Quote by Bill Price
Status Quo quotes by Hamza Yusuf
#43. America has an immense amount of power, but it doesn't use it in any benevolent way. It uses it to maintain a status quo. #Quote by Hamza Yusuf
Status Quo quotes by Bell Hooks
#44. We don't hear much from revolutionary feminists who are white because they're not serving the bourgeois agenda of the status quo. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Status Quo quotes by Justine Musk
#45. It was simply this: silence is not a neutral position, whatever your intentions. Silence automatically supports the status quo. When you are a presence that lacks a voice, you create an empty space that another voice - a dominating voice that knows no boundaries - is only too happy to fill. #Quote by Justine Musk
Status Quo quotes by Karl Barth
#46. Faith in God's revelation has nothing to do with an ideology which glorifies the status quo. #Quote by Karl Barth
Status Quo quotes by Yves Behar
#47. For each project I do, I try to surprise myself, do the unexpected, and change my own status quo. From the One Laptop Per Child, the Herman Miller Sayl, or the latest Movado watch collection, there is always an insecurity about being able to do something important. I think each of those projects makes me feel like we have progressed. #Quote by Yves Behar
Status Quo quotes by Alan Watt
#48. There is a ruthlessness to the creative act. It often involves a betrayal of the status quo. #Quote by Alan Watt
Status Quo quotes by Adam M. Grant
#49. Instead of courage' management guru Tom Peters recommends fostering 'a level of fury with the status quo such that one cannot not act. #Quote by Adam M. Grant
Status Quo quotes by David Roberts
#50. The black line is carbon emissions to date. The red line is the status quo - a projection of where emissions will go if no new substantial policy is passed to restrain greenhouse gas emissions. #Quote by David Roberts
Status Quo quotes by Seth Godin
#51. Art is frightening. Art isn't pretty. Art isn't painting. Art isn't something you hang on the wall. Art is what we do when we're truly alive. An artist is someone who uses bravery, insight, creativity, and boldness to challenge the status quo. And an artist takes it (all of it, the work, the process, the feedback from those we seek to connect with) personally. #Quote by Seth Godin
Status Quo quotes by Francis Chan
#52. Obsessed people are more concerned with obeying God than doing what is expected or fulfilling the status quo. A person who is obsessed with Jesus will do things that don't always make sense in terms of success or wealth on this earth. #Quote by Francis Chan
Status Quo quotes by Bill Shore
#53. So a visionary's best defense… is not only having a thick skin, but having reservoirs of self-confidence as well. Because when those invested in the status quo feel threatened, they chip away at not only the upstart's ideas, but also his or her motives and character. Just as big trucks require big wheels, and tall buildings require deep foundations, people with big dreams need a large reservoir of self-confidence to maintain their balance and go forward. #Quote by Bill Shore
Status Quo quotes by Victor Davis Hanson
#54. The easily ridiculed, so-so status quo often hides Herculean efforts by those whom we take for granted, and who, working in the shadows, guarantee civilization instead of chaos. #Quote by Victor Davis Hanson
Status Quo quotes by Simon Mainwaring
#55. Often motivated by a desire to maintain the existing status quo, sloth almost cost the U.S. its auto industry, as it refused for decades to build fuel-efficient cars to compete with Japanese, Korean and European imports. #Quote by Simon Mainwaring
Status Quo quotes by Philip Kaufman
#56. Similarly, the Marquis is presented in this film as someone who would disturb the status quo and therefore must be kept imprisoned. #Quote by Philip Kaufman
Status Quo quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#57. We were all involved in the death of John Kennedy. We tolerated hate; we tolerated the sick stimulation of violence in all walks of life; and we tolerated the differential application of law, which said that a man's life was sacred only if we agreed with his views. This may explain the cascading grief that flooded the country in late November. We mourned a man who had become the pride of the nation, but we grieved as well for ourselves because we knew we were sick. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Status Quo quotes by Jeffrey Tucker
#58. The problems in every country are the same. Bureaucracy is strangling innovation. Overgrown political sectors are sucking away resources that could otherwise lead to growth. Regulations and taxes are punishing innovation. Public sector services are breaking down and no longer serving people's needs. Laws and prevailing legislation control a world that no longer exists. People who go into politics to change the system end up getting co-opted by it. Workers feel trapped and fear a lack out options outside the status quo. In every case, it comes down to the great evil of our time and all times: government itself. There is no place on earth in which more liberty and less or no government would not be welcome and bring about real progress. #Quote by Jeffrey Tucker
Status Quo quotes by H. Samy Alim
#59. As with outlaw figures, in diverse musical and oral cultures throughout the world- Mexican corridos and Egyptian shaabi music, for example- Hip Hop's irreverence toward dominant values and noncompliance with the status quo creates alternative, counterhegemonic spaces. #Quote by H. Samy Alim
Status Quo quotes by Tsai Ing-wen
#60. We will work toward maintaining the status quo for peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait in order to bring the greatest benefits and well-being to the Taiwanese people. #Quote by Tsai Ing-wen
Status Quo quotes by Paulo Freire
#61. For people, 'here' signifies not merely a physical space, but also an historical space." "Those who are served by the present limit-situation regard the untested feasibility as a threatening limit-situation which must not be allowed to materialize, and act to maintain the status quo. #Quote by Paulo Freire
Status Quo quotes by Joseph Adam Ereli
#62. We expect the Taiwan authorities publicly to correct the record and unambiguously affirm that the February 27 announcement did not abolish the National Unification Council, did not change the status quo, and that the assurances remain in effect. #Quote by Joseph Adam Ereli
Status Quo quotes by Eli Broad
#63. I've never been one who enjoys maintaining the status quo. I'm always pushing for new ideas, whether it's in business or philanthropy. #Quote by Eli Broad
Status Quo quotes by Michele Jennae
#64. It is the people who innovate that inspire, and innovation is not born of the status quo. #Quote by Michele Jennae
Status Quo quotes by Margaret Cho
#65. The label of tasteful or tasteless is so often used to silence people and to maintain the status quo. It's used to shame people for not following the commonly accepted routine, for not aligning themselves with the status quo. #Quote by Margaret Cho
Status Quo quotes by RuPaul
#66. As a kid, I was searching for my tribe of other people who saw through the matrix. Even as a kid I could never buy into the status quo. I just thought it was a joke; I couldn't believe other people weren't laughing at it. #Quote by RuPaul
Status Quo quotes by Seth Godin
#67. Organizations that destroy the status quo win. Whatever the status quo is, changing it gives you the opportunity to be remarkable. #Quote by Seth Godin
Status Quo quotes by John Stoltenberg
#68. Insistence on having a sexual orientation in sex is about defending the status quo, maintaining sex differences and the sexual hierarchy; whereas resistance to sexual orientation, regimentation is more about where we need to be going. #Quote by John Stoltenberg
Status Quo quotes by Natalie Clifford Barney
#69. In love there is no status quo. #Quote by Natalie Clifford Barney
Status Quo quotes by Clayton M Christensen
#70. We could cite many cases of companies' similar attempts to create new-growth platforms after the core business had matured. They follow an all-too-similar pattern. When the core business approaches maturity and investors demand new growth, executives develop seemingly sensible strategies to generate it. Although they invest aggressively, their plans fail to create the needed growth fast enough; investors hammer the stock; management is sacked; and Wall Street rewards the new executive team for simply restoring the status quo ante: a profitable but low-growth core business.4 #Quote by Clayton M Christensen
Status Quo quotes by Ann Cotton
#71. All countries have poor people. Yet it's a very rare country which understands the indignities of poverty, while education systems maintain the status quo. The children of the elite go to the best schools and get the best jobs, not because they are the best. We're not taking advantage of the intellectual power on this planet. #Quote by Ann Cotton
Status Quo quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#72. Governments fear their people. They fear we will exercise our power to change them, and they fear we will panic. The first is a realistic if undemocratic fear, since changing them is our right; the second is a self-aggrandizing fantasy in which attempts to alter the status quo are seen as madness, hysteria, mob rule. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Status Quo quotes by Harvey MacKay
#73. Pessimism doesn't grow your business or even maintain the status quo. The pessimists on your staff make the job harder for everyone around them. They make difficulties out of opportunities. #Quote by Harvey MacKay
Status Quo quotes by Alec Cizak
#74. There is something in the American character, traditionally, that yearns to see the status quo kicked in the ass. #Quote by Alec Cizak
Status Quo quotes by John Novak
#75. You want continual improvement? Then I challenge every employee in an organization to discard the status quo and ask themselves everyday, How can I improve my job?, then find a way to make it happen. #Quote by John Novak
Status Quo quotes by Sara Ramirez
#76. I've never been very cookie cutter. If I choose something different from the status quo, it's my responsibility and my choice to live my life that way. #Quote by Sara Ramirez
Status Quo quotes by Joan D. Vinge
#77. Most people simply aren't unhappy enough with the known to trade it for the unknown #Quote by Joan D. Vinge
Status Quo quotes by Uta Hagen
#78. To rebel or revolt against the status quo is in the very nature of an artist. #Quote by Uta Hagen
Status Quo quotes by Stephen McAndrew
#79. In order to discover truth it is necessary to coldly dissect and examine all of our prejudices and inherent biases to ensure we receive unbiased answers. This takes effort. It is always easier to simply accept the ideas presented to us than to question the status quo. #Quote by Stephen McAndrew
Status Quo quotes by Nigel Farage
#80. Our feeling is that the status quo often gets a boost and this is the new status quo. #Quote by Nigel Farage
Status Quo quotes by Mike Coffman
#81. It's different when you talk about immigration in the abstract ... It's very different when you sit in front of a family, and [undocumented] children who grew up in this country, and who go to the same school you once went to ... They thought if we only enforce the law, people will self-deport ... It's not going to happen. The solution is not the status quo, or deportation when you're talking about breaking up families. #Quote by Mike Coffman
Status Quo quotes by Richard Rohr
#82. Change is not what we expect from religious people. They tend to love the past more than the present or the future. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Status Quo quotes by Brian McLaren
#83. Oppression theology and supremacist spirituality developed in the belief ecosystem of an angry God who needed appeasement in order to dispense grace, who favored some and disfavored others, and who welcomed the favored into religious institutions that accumulated and hoarded privilege and protected the status quo. #Quote by Brian McLaren
Status Quo quotes by Michael Eric Dyson
#84. Comedy is to force us to observe ourselves in ways that are humorous and yet, at the end of the day, that cause us enough discomfort with the status quo to make a change. #Quote by Michael Eric Dyson
Status Quo quotes by Angelica Hopes
#85. Looks, intimidation, specialisation, special titles, awards, and any superlative status quo can never hide the deficient character of a toxic leech of calumny, and/or one's excessive sense of entitlement.

Genuine diplomacy, true deep honesty, sincerity, and mutual respect are absent in an arrogant, offensive, defensive, deceptive, destructive, distractive, intimidating, abusive, defamatory, sicko, toxic, and sadistic, manipulative, unscrupulous, strategical, power player, fame whore. #Quote by Angelica Hopes
Status Quo quotes by Marvin Harris
#86. Like all dominant groups, men seek to promote an image of their subordinate's nature that contributes to the preservation of the status quo. For thousands of years, males have seen women not as women could be, but only as males want them to be. #Quote by Marvin Harris
Status Quo quotes by Satoru Iwata
#87. If you do the same thing as others, it will wear you out. Nintendo is not good at competing so we always have to challenge the status quo by making something new, rather than competing in an existing market. #Quote by Satoru Iwata
Status Quo quotes by George Saunders
#88. When something really bad is going on in a culture, the average guy doesn't see it. He can't. He's average. And is surrounded by and immersed in the cant and discourse of the status quo. #Quote by George Saunders
Status Quo quotes by Jackie Haze
#89. Moreover, we were to each other aspects of a dream unrealized. I emblemized the excitement of freedom, a life untethered by the confines of constructs. She illustrated a sense of belonging, of ongoing laughter in the face of those constructs, a true lifeline within the walking dead. We were standing in different places, yet the same, seeing within each other a sense of truth within the lies, a radiant light that illuminated the dark. #Quote by Jackie Haze
Status Quo quotes by Robert Byrne
#90. There are two kinds of people, those who finish what they start and so on. #Quote by Robert Byrne
Status Quo quotes by Jay Samit
#91. Instagram, Swiffer, and Nest had to compete with consumer habits and perceptions. Breakout products face competition from the formidable inertia powering the status quo. #Quote by Jay Samit
Status Quo quotes by Nalini Singh
#92. We can decide to remain in our isolated bunkers, becoming more and more obsessed with looking inward instead of outward, or we can decide to be great together. We can decide to stagnate, or we can decide to grow. We can decide to settle for the status quo, or we can decide to reach for the stars. Choose. #Quote by Nalini Singh
Status Quo quotes by Carl T. Rowan
#93. We emphasize that we believe in change because we were born of it, we have lived by it, we prospered and grew great by it. So the status quo has never been our god, and we ask no one else to bow down before it. #Quote by Carl T. Rowan
Status Quo quotes by Martin Luther
#94. Like the early Christians, we must move into a sometime hostile world armed with the revolutionary gospel of Jesus Christ. With this powerful gospel we shall boldly challenge the status quo. #Quote by Martin Luther
Status Quo quotes by V.S. Ramachandran
#95. The purpose of all of this (left hemisphere's way of choosing denial or repression over considering an anomaly) is to impose stability on behavior and to prevent vacillation because indecisiveness doesn't serve any purpose. Any decision, so long as it is probably correct, is better than no decision at all. A perpetually fickle general will never win a war. #Quote by V.S. Ramachandran
Status Quo quotes by Sarah Palin
#96. Well, it's always, though, safer in politics to avoid risk. To just kind of go along with the status quo. But I didn't get into government to do the safe and easy things. A ship in harbor is safe, but that's not why the ship is built. Politics isn't just a game of competing interests and clashing parties. The people of America expect us to seek public office and to serve for the right reasons. And the right reason is to challenge the status quo and to serve the common good. #Quote by Sarah Palin
Status Quo quotes by Pete Buttigieg
#97. Nothing is more human than to resist loss, which is why cynical politicians can get pretty far by offering up the fantasy that a loss can be reversed rather than overcome the hard way. This is the deepest lie of our recent national politics, the core falsehood encoded in "Make America Great Again." Beneath the impossible promises -- that coal alone will fuel our future, that a big wall can be built around our status quo, that climate change isn't even real -- is the deeper fantasy that time itself can be reversed, all losses restored, and thus no new ways of life required. #Quote by Pete Buttigieg
Status Quo quotes by Marvin Ammori
#98. Default choices often remain unchanged for no reason other than being the default, either because of this lack of information or humans' status quo bias. #Quote by Marvin Ammori
Status Quo quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#99. I refuse to give readers an uplifting faux experience engineered to comfort them and perpetuate the sociopolitical and economic status quo."
"Who died and made you Bertolt Brecht? #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Status Quo quotes by Russell D. Moore
#100. The Bible Belt is collapsing. The world of nominal, cultural Christianity that took the American dream and added Jesus to it in order to say, 'you can have everything you ever wanted and Heaven too,' is soon to be gone. Good riddance. #Quote by Russell D. Moore
Status Quo quotes by Wendell Berry
#101. Despite its protests to the contrary, modern Christianity has become willy-nilly the religion of the state and the economic status quo. Because it has been so exclusively dedicated to incanting anemic souls into Heaven, it has been made the tool of much earthly villainy. It has, for the most part, stood silently by while a predatory economy has ravaged the world, destroyed its natural beauty and health, divided and plundered its human communities and households. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Status Quo quotes by Tony Hsieh
#102. Never accept or be too comfortable with the status quo, because the companies that get into trouble are historically the ones that aren't able to adapt to change and respond quickly enough. #Quote by Tony Hsieh
Status Quo quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#103. Would the fate of China have been different if Stilwell had been allowed to reform the army and create an effective combat force of 90 divisions? ... This assumption might have been true if Asia were clay in the hands of the West. But the"regenerative idea," stilwell's or another's, could not be imposed from the outside. The Kuomintang military structure could not be reformed without reform of the system from which it sprang and, as Stillwell himself recognized, to reform such a system "it must be torn to pieces."

In great things, wrote Erasmus, it is enough to have tried. Stilwell's mission was America's supreme try in China. He made the maximum effort because his temperament permitted no less: he never slackened and he never gave up. Yet the mission failed in its ultimate purpose because the goal was unachievable. The impulse was not Chinese. Combat efficiency and the offensive spirit, like the Christianity and democracy offered by missionaries and foreign advisers, were not indigenous demands of the society and culture to which they were brought. Even the Yellow River Road that Stilwell built in 1921 had disappeared twelve years later. China was a problem for which there was no American solution. The American effort to sustain the status quo could not supply an outworn government with strength and stability or popular support. It could not hold up a husk nor long delay the cyclical passing of the mandate of heaven. In the end, China went her own way as if the Am #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Status Quo quotes by Marianne Williamson
#104. Our religious institutions have far too often become handmaidens of the status quo, while the genuine religious experience is anything but that. True religion is by nature disruptive of
what has been, giving birth to the eternally new. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Status Quo quotes by Joy Moore
#105. There remains a problem with race in America because of the church's failure to understand the issues from a biblical perspective."

"Rather than being called into a different community by Scripture, we see our broken communities as justified by Scripture."

"Rather than challenge the worldly status quo, religious groups perpetuate stereotypes, sectarianism, and schisms when accepting ethnic denominational identities- inverting Pentecost by reading in multiple languages unrecognized by listeners and offering separate worship services according to musical preference."

"Ultimately, our aim is to draw attention to the biblical narrative from which comes to the strength for the long road of reconciliation. #Quote by Joy Moore
Status Quo quotes by David Ben-Gurion
#106. It's not a matter of maintaining the status quo. We have to create a dynamic state, oriented towards expansion. #Quote by David Ben-Gurion
Status Quo quotes by Nancy L. Kriseman
#107. As your care recipient's advocate, be involved, don't accept the status quo, and don't be afraid to voice your concerns. #Quote by Nancy L. Kriseman
Status Quo quotes by Oren Moverman
#108. I think you can blame certain police officers for certain behavior, you can blame certain departments for certain behavior, and power and so forth, but, ultimately, I'd say it's about us, and it's about society, and I say - even if its sounds a little controversial - put the police aside for a second. It's really not about them. It's about the game that's been created to keep the status quo going and to let the people who own it all gain from the game. #Quote by Oren Moverman
Status Quo quotes by Anonymous
#109. Nothing is better for protecting the status quo than convincing people that there problems are their own and are entirely their personal responsibility. This is basically how neoliberalism works: "personal responsibility" is elevated over the possibility of collective action, a reiteration of requirement to "express oneself" as an isolated self, free of social determination, free for "whatever. #Quote by Anonymous

#111. Challenging the status quo takes commitment, courage, imagination, and, above all, dedication to learning. #Quote by Marshall Ganz
Status Quo quotes by N.K. Jemisin
#112. It is the lies he's telling her - as he has been, Nassun understands suddenly, her whole life - that really break her heart. He's said that he loves her, after all, but that obviously isn't true. He cannot love an orogene, and that is what she is. He cannot be an orogene's father, and that is why he constantly demands she be something other than what she is. #Quote by N.K. Jemisin
Status Quo quotes by Shaman Durek
#113. The matrix is all about boxes. It exists to keep us living in boxes, and thinking in boxes, and doing the same thing everyone else is doing, all day, for the rest of our lives, because boxes, and patterns, and the status quo make humans easy to control. #Quote by Shaman Durek
Status Quo quotes by Elizabeth Janeway
#114. Myth, legend, and ritual ... function to maintain a status quo. That makes them singularly bad in coping with change, indeed counterproductive, for change is the enemy of myth. #Quote by Elizabeth Janeway
Status Quo quotes by Ken Ilgunas
#115. As a country, we take out loans and go to school. We take out loans and buy a car. We take out loans and buy a home. It's not always that we simply "want" these things. Rather, it's often the case that we use our obligations as confirmations that "We're doing something." If we have things to pay for, we need a job. If we have a job, we need a car. If we have such things, we have a life, albeit an ordinary and monotonous life, but a life no less. If we have debt, we have a goal-- we have a reason to get out of bed in the morning. Debt narrows our options. It gives us a good reason to stick it out at a job, sink into sofas, and savor the comforts of the status quo. Debt is sought so we have a game to play, a battle to fight, a mythology to live out. It gives us a script to read, rules to abide by, instructions to follow. And when we see someone who doesn't play by our rules-- someone who's spurned the comforts of hearth and home-- we shift in our chairs and call him or her crazy. We feel a fury for the hobo and the hitchhiker, the hippie and gypsy, the vagrant and nomad-- not because we have any reason to believe these people will do us any harm, but because they make us feel uncomfortable.They remind us of the inner longings we've squelched, the hero or heroine we've buried beneath a houseful of junk, the spirit we've exorcised out of ourselves so we could remain with our feet on the ground, stable and secure. #Quote by Ken Ilgunas
Status Quo quotes by Kay Redfield Jamison
#116. Depression, somehow, is much more in line with society's notions of what women are all about: passive, sensitive, hopeless, helpless, stricken, dependent, confused, rather tiresome, and with limited aspirations. Manic states, on the other hand, seem to be more the provenance of men: restless, fiery, aggressive, volatile, energetic, risk taking, grandiose and visionary, and impatient with the status quo. Anger or irritability in men, under such circumstances, is more tolerated and understandable; leaders or takers of voyages are permitted a wider latitude for being temperamental. Journalists and other writers, quite understandably, have tended to focus on women and depression, rather than women and mania. This is not surprising: depression is twice as common in women as men. But manic-depressive illness occurs equally often in women and men, and, being a relatively common condition, mania ends up affecting a large number of women. They, in turn, often are misdiagnosed, receive poor, if any, psychiatric treatment, and are at high risk for suicide, alcoholism, drug abuse, and violence. But they, like men who have manic-depressive illness, also often contribute a great deal of energy, fire, enthusiasm, and imagination to the people and world around them. #Quote by Kay Redfield Jamison
Status Quo quotes by Melanie Joy
#117. Another myth of necessity is that killing is an economic imperative. While an economic motive has driven many violent ideologies
the economy of the New World was largely buttressed by slavery, and the plundering of gold and other assests as well as the unpaid labor of Nazi victims financed the German war machine
that doesn't mean the economy would collapse were the killing to cease. It is far more likely that the economic status quo would break down; the carnistic-corporate power structure, rather than the citizenry, would suffer were carnism abolished. #Quote by Melanie Joy
Status Quo quotes by Herbert Marcuse
#118. The reign of such a one-dimensional reality does not mean that materialism rules, and that the spiritual, metaphysical, and bohemian occupations are petering out. On the contrary, there is a great deal of "Worship together this week," "Why not try God," Zen, existentialism, and beat ways of life, etc. But such modes of protest and transcendence are no longer contradictory to the status quo and no longer negative. They are rather the ceremonial part of practical behaviorism, its harmless negation, and are quickly digested by the status quo as part of its healthy diet. #Quote by Herbert Marcuse
Status Quo quotes by Jay Samit
#119. Every threat to the status quo is an opportunity in disguise. #Quote by Jay Samit
Status Quo quotes by David Foster Wallace
#120. There's a grosser irony about Politically Correct English. This is that PCE purports to be the dialect of progressive reform but is in fact
in its Orwellian substitution of the euphemisms of social equality for social equality itself
of vastly more help to conservatives and the US status quo than traditional SNOOT prescriptions ever were. Were I, for instance, a political conservative who opposed using taxation as a means of redistributing national wealth, I would be delighted to watch PC progressives spend their time and energy arguing over whether a poor person should be described as "low-income" or "economically disadvantaged" or "pre-prosperous" rather than constructing effective public arguments for redistributive legislation or higher marginal tax rates. [ ... ] In other words, PCE acts as a form of censorship, and censorship always serves the status quo. #Quote by David Foster Wallace

Status Quo quotes by Ann Powers
#122. Personally, I've realized that the tradition I thought of as too safe, too pretty, and too conventional is the space where women have been able to gain some practical ground. The area of music where we thought the status quo was really being upset - specifically hard rock - has actually remained the most male-dominated. #Quote by Ann Powers
Status Quo quotes by Jacques Ellul
#123. Christians were never meant to be normal. We've always been holy troublemakers, we've always been creators of uncertainty, agents of dimension that's incompatible with the status quo; we do not accept the world as it is, but we insist on the world becoming the way that God wants it to be. And the Kingdom of God is different from the patterns of this world. #Quote by Jacques Ellul
Status Quo quotes by Mehmet Oz

Status Quo quotes by Brennan Lee Mulligan
#125. That's very noble of you, cautionary tales of hubris notwithstanding.'

'Hah! Please. Find me a more universally REWARDED quality than hubris. Go on, I'll wait. The word is just ancient Greek for "uppity," as far as I'm concerned. Hubris isn't something that destroys you, it's something you are PUNISHED for. By the GODS. Well, I've never met a god, just powerful human beings with a lot to gain by keeping people scared. So fuck hubris! Punch the sun, baby! #Quote by Brennan Lee Mulligan

Status Quo quotes by Bell Hooks
#127. Given the way universities work to reinforce and perpetuate the status quo, the way knowledge is offered as commodity, Women's Studies can easily become the place where revolutionary feminist thought and feminist activism are submerged or made secondary to the goals of academic careerism. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Status Quo quotes by Viola Davis
#128. The world is very good at encouraging you to go along with the status quo and at basking in your successes. But when you hit a wall in your personal life, and you screw up, people don't give you a chance to navigate your way through it and tap into what's extraordinary about you. #Quote by Viola Davis

Status Quo quotes by Marianne Williamson
#130. Major political parties have a role, but they are incapable of initiating fundamental change because they are fundamentally tied to the status quo. They are the status quo. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Status Quo quotes by Howard Schultz
#131. I had written hundreds of memos during my 26 years at the company, and all had shared a common thread. They were about self-examination in the pursuit of excellence, and a willingness not to embrace the status quo. This is a cornerstone of my leadership philosophy. #Quote by Howard Schultz
Status Quo quotes by Robert Atkins

Status Quo quotes by Beth Brooke
#134. My dad would always say, 'Girl, you've been given gifts. Use them.' And what he meant by that was, 'Don't just be successful. Don't just use your talents for your own success. But make a difference with them. Do something significant.' And when I put those two things together, it just causes me to not accept the status quo. #Quote by Beth Brooke
Status Quo quotes by Barack Obama
#135. Loving this country requires more than singing its praises or avoiding uncomfortable truths. It requires the occasional disruption, the willingness to speak out for what's right, and shake up the status quo. #Quote by Barack Obama
Status Quo quotes by Donna De Varona
#136. In the early years of the Roaring Twenties, American women not only won the right to vote but they also earned headlines along side their male counterparts during the Golden Age of American sports. Michael Bohn shares an engaging story of how two sports heroines, tennis player Helen Wills and swimmer Gertrude Ederle, helped embolden women to seek self-fulfillment by challenging the status quo. #Quote by Donna De Varona

Status Quo quotes by Tricia Sullivan

Status Quo quotes by Sara Ramirez
#141. I love challenging the status quo. #Quote by Sara Ramirez
Status Quo quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#142. Gender is not an easy conversation to have. It makes people uncomfortable, sometimes even irritable. Both men and women are resistant to talk about gender, or are quick to dismiss the problems of gender. Because thinking of changing the status quo is always uncomfortable. #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Status Quo quotes by Martin Prechtel
#143. After all, a kiss between real lovers is not some type of contract, a neatly defined moment of pleasure, something obtained by greedy conquest, or any kind of clear saying of how it is. It is a grief-drenched hatching of two hearts into some ecstatic never-before-seen bird whose new uncategorizable form, unrecognized by the status quo, gives the slip to Death's sure rational deal. For love is a delicious and always messy extension of life that unfrantically outgrows mortality's rigid insistence on precise and efficient definition. Having all the answers means you haven't really ecstatically kissed or lived, thereby declaring the world defined and already finished. Loving all the questions on the other hand is a vitality that makes any length of life worth living. Loving doesn't mean you know all the notes and that you have to play all the notes, it just means you have to play the few notes you have long and beautifully.
Like the sight of a truly beautiful young woman, smooth and gliding, melting hearts at even a distant glimpse, that no words, no matter how capable, can truly describe; a woman whose beauty is only really known by those who take a perch on the vista of time to watch the years of life speak out their long ornate sentences of grooves as they slowly stretch into her smoothness, wrinkling her as she glides struggling, decade by decade, her gait mitigated by a long trail of heavy loads, joys, losses, and suffering whose joint-aching years of traveling into a m #Quote by Martin Prechtel
Status Quo quotes by Chelsey Philpot

Status Quo quotes by Hannah Arendt
#146. Nothing proves better the irreparable decay of the party system than the great efforts after this war to revive it on the Continent, their pitiful results, the enhanced appeal of movements after the defeat of Nazism, and the obvious threat of Bolshevism to national independence. The result of all efforts to restore the status quo has been only the restoration of a political situation in which the destructive movements are the only "parties" that function properly. Their leadership has maintained authority under the most trying circumstances and in spite of constantly changing party lines. In order to gauge correctly the chances for survival of the European nation-state, it would be wise not to pay too much attention to nationalist slogans which the movements occasionally adopt for purposes of hiding their true intentions, but rather to consider that by now everybody knows that they are regional branches of international organizations, that the rank and file is not disturbed in the least when it becomes obvious that their policy serves foreign-policy interests of another and even hostile power, and that denunciations of their leader as fifth columnists, traitors to the country, etc., do not impress their members to any considerable degree. In contrast to the old parties, the movements have survived the last war and are today the only "parties" which have remained alive and meaningful to their adherents. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Status Quo quotes by David Walton Earle
#147. A victim evokes sympathy, right? Victims are not responsible, right? Victims have the moral high ground… someone else is causing the misery, right? Victims can easily justify why they are right. Victims allow themselves to be stuck in the status quo and they excel at seeing the faults in others, ignoring their own re-sponsibility. They love to take others' inventory of faults and are excellent at blaming. Victims become hypersensitive to real and perceived injustice, where any slight becomes a reason to reject. Victimization is the toxic wind blowing through families, fanning the fires of dysfunction. #Quote by David Walton Earle

Status Quo quotes by Seth Godin
#149. Expertise gives you enough insight to reinvent what everyone else assumes is the truth. Sure, it's possible to randomly challenge the conventions of your field and luckily find a breakthrough. It's far more likely, though, that you will design a great Web site or direct a powerful movie or lead a breakthrough product development if you understand the status quo better than anyone else. Beginner's luck is dramatically overrated. Emotional #Quote by Seth Godin

Status Quo quotes by Henry Miller
#152. Those who are truly decrepit, living corpses, so to speak, are the middle-aged, middle-class men and woman who are stuck in their comfortable grooves and imagine that the status quo will least forever or else are so frightened it won't, that they have retreated into their mental bomb shelters to wait it out. #Quote by Henry Miller
Status Quo quotes by Gary Johnson
#153. Tonight was a great opportunity to take on the political status quo that has given us trillion dollar deficits and put millions out of work. Our objective was to inject some common sense into the conversation among Republicans at a time when business-as-usual simply won't work. #Quote by Gary Johnson
Status Quo quotes by Hillary Clinton

Status Quo quotes by Rob Lowe
#156. Nothing in life is unfair. It's just life. To the extent that I had any inner turmoil, I had only myself to blame. I also thought of my two boys and what kind of example I hoped to be. I would always want them to take charge of their own futures and not be paralyzed by the comfort and certainty of the status quo or be cowed by the judgment of those on the outside looking in. #Quote by Rob Lowe
Status Quo quotes by Benigno Aquino III

Status Quo quotes by Richard Rohr
#158. The human ego prefers anything, just about anything, to falling, or changing, or dying. The ego is that part of you that loves the status quo – even when it's not working. It attaches to past and present and fears the future. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Status Quo quotes by Vera Nazarian
#159. Relief is a great feeling.
It's the emotional and physical reward we receive from our bodies upon alleviation of pain, pressure and struggle. A time to bask in the lack of the negative.
And yet, think about it - relief is really the status quo, a negation of the suffering, a nothing in itself. It is the way things were before the pressure and struggle began.
So, is it a step back? A regression?
Or is it an opportunity to regroup, start over, and move in a different direction?
Use your moment of relief well. #Quote by Vera Nazarian
Status Quo quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#160. So often the contemporary church is a weak, ineffectual voice with an uncertain sound. So often it is an archdefender of the status quo. Far from being disturbed by the presence of the church, the power structure of the average community is consoled by the church's silent - and often even vocal - sanction of things as they are. But the judgment of God is upon the church as never before. If today's church does not recapture the sacrificial spirit of the early church, it will lose its authenticity, forfeit the loyalty of millions, and be dismissed as an irrelevant social club with no meaning for the twentieth century. Every day I meet young people whose disappointment with the church has turned into outright disgust. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Status Quo quotes by Elizabeth George
#161. Essentially and most simply put, plot is what the characters do to deal with the situation they are in. It is a logical sequence of events that grow from an initial incident that alters the status quo of the characters. #Quote by Elizabeth George
Status Quo quotes by Annie Finch

Status Quo quotes by Hermann Joseph Muller
#164. There is no permanent status quo in nature; all is the process of adjustment and readjustment, or else eventual failure. But man is the first being yet evolved on earth which has the power to note this changefulness, and, if he will, to turn it to his own advantage, to work out genetic methods, eugenic ideas, yes, to invent new characteristics, organs, and biological systems that will work out to further the interests, the happiness, the glory of the God-like being whose meager foreshadowings we the present ailing creatures are. #Quote by Hermann Joseph Muller

Status Quo quotes by Kate Zambreno

Status Quo quotes by Michael Lewis

Status Quo quotes by Jack Tar
#175. Literary censorship should not be necessary within the parameters of the law because it's simply a reflection of prevailing social prejudices!

Writing should challenge and change prevailing ideas - churning the guts and ruffling feathers of friends, family and society. Antagonizing is a product of open writing. Expecting less is resignation and stagnation that slides the art into the status-quo.

Writing needs the wider view that shows the causality of our prevailing social prejudice - and shakes at its foundation.

Writers spare us no less and please leave your praise and oppugn to Christopher Hitchens. #Quote by Jack Tar
Status Quo quotes by Erich Fromm
#176. What holds true for the individual holds true for a society. It is never static; if it does not grow, it decays; if it does not transcend the status quo for the better, it changes for the worse. Often we, the individual or the people who make up a society, have the illusion we could stand still and not alter the given situation in the one or the other direction. This is one of the most dangerous illusions. The moment we stand still, we begin to decay. #Quote by Erich Fromm
Status Quo quotes by Jackie Haze
#177. I felt that the magical people must be in the hidden back roads and dusty cubby holes of life; on highways, in hostels, and in shabby, smoky cafes. These enchanting people are in trees, around fires and under hand-knit hats and street lamps reflecting gold on rain soaked pavement. They dance while others dangle; they vibrantly sing the songs that get jumbled and stuck in the subconscious of others who only wish to catch tune. They are the rare ones whose uncommon experiences touch your heart through just a wink of their eye, the stories stitched in the holes of their shoes, invoking a longing for the unknown, taking others to a place of missing what they've never even had -- they do not settle, they do not compromise. #Quote by Jackie Haze
Status Quo quotes by Rita Dove

#181. Optimism is a political act. Those who benefit from the status quo are perfectly happy for us to think nothing is going to get any better. In fact, these days, cynicism is obedience. #Quote by Alex Steffen
Status Quo quotes by Arno Michaelis
#182. I'll never truly understand what it's like to be anyone but a white man in the United States. For all of my self-imposed distance from the status quo, I'll never be able to get my head around being the product of generations of hardship. The most brutal chattel slavery in human history. I'll never comprehend being penned up in an impoverished reservation on land that was once sovereign domain. I'll never know how it feels to be denied because of the color of your skin or because of where you came from. To have to watch your children suffer the same fate. But I still try to understand - by studying the history that the victors didn't write, and interacting with my fellow human beings. Finding out what their favorite color is. Asking what they daydreamed about as a child. Sharing laughs. Discovering the person. I #Quote by Arno Michaelis
Status Quo quotes by T.H. White
#183. Man must be ready to say: Yes, since Cain there has been injustice, but we can only set the misery right if we accept a status quo. Lands have been robbed, men slain, nations humiliated. Let us now start fresh without remembrance, rather than live forward and backward at the same time. We cannot build the future by avenging the past. Let us sit down as brothers, and accept the Peace of God. #Quote by T.H. White

Status Quo quotes by Steve Bivans
#186. What's interesting is that most free-marketers don't seem to want a free market at all, but a status quo market. The market in the United States is anything but free. If it were, big business would have to survive without corporate welfare to the tune of about $1 trillion (that's trillion) in government subsidies, the majority of which, about $650 billion, go to the fossil fuel industry! They are living off of the public dole on subsidies totaling billions of dollar - that we hand out either directly, or through tax breaks for their big corporations - with the false assumption that they are creating jobs. They are not. They are creating yachts, Leer Jets, and McMansions with swimming pools. #Quote by Steve Bivans
Status Quo quotes by Russell D. Moore
#187. If we do not have a vision before us of where we are headed, we will assume that the status quo is normal, and that we and our cultures and our societies are "only human," without ever realizing that we have never seen normal humanity, in our lives. #Quote by Russell D. Moore
Status Quo quotes by James A. Baldwin
#188. The civilized have created the wretched, quite coldly and deliberately, and do not intend to change the status quo; are responsible for their slaughter and enslavement; rain down bombs on defenseless children whenever and wherever they decide that their 'vital interests' are menaced, and think nothing of torturing a man to death: these people are not to be taken seriously when they speak of the 'sanctity' of human life, or the 'conscience' of the civilized world. #Quote by James A. Baldwin
Status Quo quotes by Ray Bradbury
#189. I hate a Roman named Status Quo!' he said to me. 'Stuff your eyes with wonder, ' he said, 'live as if you'd drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. Ask no guarantees, ask for no security, there never was such an animal. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Status Quo quotes by Pema Chodron
#190. The question is, are you going to grow or are you going to just stay as you are out of fear and waste your precious human life by status quo-ing instead of being willing to break the sound barrier? Break the glass ceiling, or whatever it is in your own life? Are you willing to go forward? I suggest finding the willingness to go forward instead of staying still, which is essentially going backward, particularly when you have a calling in some direction. That calling needs to be answered. And it's not necessarily going to work out the way you want it to work out, but it is taking you forward, and you are leaving the nest. And that never can be a mistake - to fly instead of staying in the nest with all the poop and everything that's in there. TS: #Quote by Pema Chodron
Status Quo quotes by Ronald Reagan
#191. Status quo, you know, is Latin for 'the mess we're in'. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Status Quo quotes by John Fiske
#192. Gless's lexical shift from "sexiness" through "femininity" to a "real strong lady" is a discursive shift and therefore has sociopolitical dimension. "Sexiness" is from an explicitly patriarchal discourse, "femininity" is from a discourse that attempts to naturalize gender construction and difference in terms of the status quo and is therefore implicitly patriarchal, whereas "real strong lady" is from a discourse that consciously opposes and exposes both the explicit and implicit patriarchy of "sexiness" and "femininity". #Quote by John Fiske
Status Quo quotes by Marianne Williamson
#193. I think the media has become incredibly corrupt. We used to have a profound tradition of investigative journalism in the United States. Some journalists were real heroes, such as Bob Woodward who helped uncover the Watergate scandal. But today he is leading the opposite charge, trying to bring down the careers of people and score easy victories. In other words, those who used to bust the status quo have now become the status quo. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Status Quo quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#194. Activism that challenges the status quo, that attacks deeply rooted problems, is not for the faint of heart. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Status Quo quotes by James Balog
#195. Climate change should not fundamentally be seen as a political or partisan issue, but it has been turned into a political football primarily by the climate deniers who have a vested interested in maintaining the status quo. That includes certain industrial interests, financial interests and political interests. #Quote by James Balog
Status Quo quotes by Peter M. Senge
#196. You cannot have a learning organization without shared vision. Without a pull toward some goal which people truly want to achieve, the forces in support of the status quo can be overwhelming. #Quote by Peter M. Senge
Status Quo quotes by Natsume Sōseki
#197. He had always been a middle-of-the-road sort. He had never submitted word for word to anyone's command, but neither had he passionately rebelled against anyone's advice. Depending upon the interpretation, this was the posture of a schemer or the strategy of a born vacillator. If he himself had been confronted with either of these charges, he could not have avoided wondering if they might not be true. But in large part, this was to be attributed neither to artifice nor to vacillation but rather to the flexibility of his vision, which allowed him to look in both directions at once. To this day, it was precisely this capacity that had always dampened his determination to advance singlemindedly toward a particular goal. It was not unusual for him to stand paralyzed in the midst of a situation. His posture of upholding the status quo was not the result of poverty of thought, but the product of lucid judgment; but he had never understood this truth about himself until he acted upon his beliefs with inviolable courage. The situation with Michiyo was precisely a case in point. #Quote by Natsume Sōseki
Status Quo quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#198. If you want to thrive in today's economy, you must challenge the status quo and get the financial education necessary to succeed. #Quote by Robert Kiyosaki
Status Quo quotes by Megan McKenna
#199. Jesus is dangerous to society, to the status quo, and to contemporary piety. This clarity of preaching cannot be allowed to continue. It is like a cold, a virus that infects all who suffer and who love under conditions that only worsen, in a world that blames those who are poor and do not live up to religious expectations. #Quote by Megan McKenna
Status Quo quotes by Elizabeth May
#200. I'm going to let my friends in the other parties fight over the turf at the cutting edge of the status quo. #Quote by Elizabeth May
Status Quo quotes by J. Paul Getty
#201. My yachts were, I suppose, outstanding status symbols. #Quote by J. Paul Getty

Status Quo quotes by Gautama Buddha
#203. These ... things, householder, are welcome, agreeable, pleasant, & hard to obtain in the world:
Long life is welcome, agreeable, pleasant, & hard to obtain in the world.
Beauty is welcome, agreeable, pleasant, & hard to obtain in the world.
Happiness is welcome, agreeable, pleasant, & hard to obtain in the world.
Status is welcome, agreeable, pleasant, & hard to obtain in the world.
... Now, I tell you, these ... things are not to be obtained by reason of prayers or wishes. If they were to be obtained by reason of prayers or wishes, who here would lack them? It's not fitting for the disciple of the noble ones who desires long life to pray for it or to delight in doing so. Instead, the disciple of the noble ones who desires long life should follow the path of practice leading to long life. In so doing, he will attain long life ...
[Ittha Sutta, AN 5.43] #Quote by Gautama Buddha

Status Quo quotes by Christopher G. Nuttall
#205. But if you grow up in a society which is rotten to the core, where you can cheerfully ignore the rules if you have power and status, where your superiors will screw you over if they happen to need a scapegoat . . . you wind up with very little respect for those rules. #Quote by Christopher G. Nuttall
Status Quo quotes by Maryam Namazie
#206. The situation of women living in Islam-stricken
societies and under Islamic laws is the outrage
of the 21st century. Burqa-clad and veiled women
and girls, beheadings, stoning to death,
floggings, child sexual abuse in the name of
marriage and sexual apartheid are only the most
brutal and visible aspects of women's
rightlessness and third class citizen status in the Middle East #Quote by Maryam Namazie
Status Quo quotes by Naomi Klein
#207. To the extent people prioritize values and goals such as achievement, money, power, status and image, they tend to hold more negative attitudes towards the environment, are less likely to engage in positive environmental behaviors, and are more likely to use natural resources unsustainably, #Quote by Naomi Klein
Status Quo quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#208. Never look down on someone because God himself does not do so. No matter what defines the status, nationality or gender of a person, once God's spirit is in him/her, he or she becomes a complete creature with complete potentials! #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Status Quo quotes by Eugene Kennedy
#209. Wherever you find 'men together' - writing the rules, as at exclusive golf or other men's clubs, businesses, and lodges where they wear elaborate robes and funny hats - women are kept completely outside if possible and, when grudgingly admitted, to highly restricted areas or token status. #Quote by Eugene Kennedy
Status Quo quotes by Horace
#210. Of what use is a fortune to me, if I cannot use it?
[Lat., Quo mihi fortunam, si non conceditur uti?] #Quote by Horace
Status Quo quotes by Diodorus Siculus
#211. Physically the Celts are terrifying in appearance, with deep sounding and very harsh voices. In conversation they use few words and speak in riddles, for the most part hinting at things and leaving a great deal to be understood. They frequently exaggerate with the aim of extolling themselves and diminishing the status of others. They are boasters and threateners and given to bombastic self-dramatization, and yet they are quick of mind and with good natural ability for learning. #Quote by Diodorus Siculus
Status Quo quotes by Hilary Mantel
#212. And I sometimes think that the fading out of the individual personality is what one should desire, not the status of a hero - a sort of effacement of oneself from history. The entire record of the human race has been falsified, it has been made up by bad governments to suit themselves, by kings and tyrants to make them look good. This idea of history as made by great men is quite nonsensical, when you look at it from the point of view of the people. The real heroes are those who have resisted tyrants, and it is in the nature of tyranny not only to kill those who oppose it but to wipe their names out of the record, to obliterate them, so that resistance seems impossible. #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Status Quo quotes by Brene Brown
#213. Everything that these folks are saying that they're trying to move away from, like comparison, perfectionism, judgement, and exhaustion as a status symbol - that all describes my life. It was more like a medical researcher studying a disease and figuring out he or she has it. #Quote by Brene Brown
Status Quo quotes by Alison Jackson
#214. Now celebrity has taken on a holy status all of its own, and we look to the stars to provide us with the transcendental experience that was once achieved through religion. #Quote by Alison Jackson
Status Quo quotes by Tom Chatfield
#215. Vast volumes of mixed media surround us, from music to games and videos. Yet almost all of our online actions still begin and end with writing: text messages, status updates, typed search queries, comments and responses, screens packed with verbal exchanges and, underpinning it all, countless billions of words. #Quote by Tom Chatfield
Status Quo quotes by Peer Steinbruck
#216. The U.S. will lose its status as the superpower of the world financial system. The world will become multi-polar. #Quote by Peer Steinbruck
Status Quo quotes by Nick Hanauer
#217. Economics is mostly how humans rationalize who gets what and why. It's how we instantiate our preferences about status, privileges, and power. #Quote by Nick Hanauer
Status Quo quotes by Jaachynma N.E. Agu
#218. Yes, all you need do is to change your orientation and have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ that He can make you whole, change your status, and add value to your destiny. #Quote by Jaachynma N.E. Agu
Status Quo quotes by M.F. Moonzajer

Status Quo quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#220. Portland in particular is a cheap enough place to live that you can still develop your passion - painting, writing, music. People seem less status-conscious. Even wealthy people buy second-hand clothes and look a little bit homeless. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Status Quo quotes by Angela Carter
#221. The victim is always morally superior to the master; that is the victim's ambivalent triumph. That is why there have been so few notoriously wicked women in comparison to the number of notoriously wicked men; our victim status ensures that we rarely have the opportunity. #Quote by Angela Carter
Status Quo quotes by Edwin Meese
#222. The 1986 act didn't turn illegal immigrants into citizens on the spot. It granted temporary resident status only to those who could prove they had resided continuously in America for five years. After 18 months, their status could be upgraded to permanent residency, and only after another five years could they become U.S. citizens. #Quote by Edwin Meese
Status Quo quotes by Alain De Botton
#223. We are tempted to believe that certain achievements and possessions will give us enduring satisfaction. We are invited to imagine ourselves scaling the steep cliff face of happiness in order to reach a wide, high plateau on which we will live out the rest of our lives; we are not reminded that soon after gaining the summit, we will be called down again into fresh lowlands of anxiety and desire. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Status Quo quotes by Ken Robinson
#224. Creativity is as important now in education as literacy and we should treat it with the same status. #Quote by Ken Robinson
Status Quo quotes by Kate McGahan

Status Quo quotes by Kailin Gow
#226. My true passion has always been to use my status as an author to make a positive impact. #Quote by Kailin Gow
Status Quo quotes by Alain De Botton
#227. It is this idea 'decency' should be attached to wealth -and 'indecency' to poverty - that forms the core of one strand of skeptical complaint against the modern status-ideal. Why should failure to make money be taken as a sign of an unconditionally flawed human being rather than of a fiasco in one particular area if the far larger, more multifaceted, project of leading a good life?
Why should both wealth and poverty be read as the predominant guides to an individual's morals ? #Quote by Alain De Botton
Status Quo quotes by Harrison Owen
#228. it is not how many people come, or even who comes (in the sense of status or position) that counts, rather it is the quality of the interaction and conversation that make the difference. #Quote by Harrison Owen
Status Quo quotes by Marty Nemko
#229. nothing statusy about being stranded on the road. Designer-label companies charge more because they've spent a fortune on marketing and advertising to build their brand's status, their perceived value. I roll my eyes at people who, for example, wear Facconable shirts or Rolex watches. Right or wrong, I perceive them as so insecure that they need to attempt to appear worthy by silly spending. #Quote by Marty Nemko
Status Quo quotes by Dick Thornburgh
#230. That is why, with optimism instead of fear, all those who want to see Puerto Rico's status resolved should seek the truth about each option, including the upside and the downside of each. #Quote by Dick Thornburgh
Status Quo quotes by Jack Smith
#231. The PURPOSE of the DATA INTEGRITY BOARD review meeting is NOT for the purpose of reviewing the INTEGRITY of the paperwork because that has already been decided, it is for the PURPOSE of determining the CHARACTER & STANDING of THE MAN/WOMAN who brought the perfect paperwork and was intending to use the perfect paperwork for COMMERCIAL settlement and closure. So they have to find out if the STATUS and CHARACTER of the party who is going to use the paperwork was going to be ALLOWED to use it. #Quote by Jack Smith
Status Quo quotes by Andrena Sawyer

Status Quo quotes by Nitya Prakash
#233. Relationship status: That wet spot in bed is tears. #Quote by Nitya Prakash
Status Quo quotes by Laozi
#234. Pride attaches undue importance to the superiority of one's status in the eyes of others; and shame is fear of humiliation at one's inferior status in the estimation of others. When one sets one's heart on being highly esteemed, and achieves such rating, then he or she is automatically involved in fear of losing status. #Quote by Laozi
Status Quo quotes by Robert Spencer
#235. The choices for unbelievers are: Accept Islam. Pay the jizya, the poll-tax on non-Muslims, which (as we shall see) is the cornerstone of an entire system of humiliating regulations that institutionalize inferior status for non-Muslims in Islamic law. War with Muslims. Always remember, "peaceful coexistence as equals in a pluralistic society" isn't one of the choices. #Quote by Robert Spencer
Status Quo quotes by Brenna Yovanoff
#236. The tone of his voice is like he expects a fight, like he's challenging me to disagree, and I want to tell him that I don't care one way or the other. That her blood-relative status makes no difference as long as she loves him. And she does. She wears it, beaming it around like a neon sign. #Quote by Brenna Yovanoff
Status Quo quotes by Dale Hanson Bourke
#237. Nativism is a movement that promotes favored status for established citizens or residents of a nation over newcomers or immigrants. Nativists typically oppose immigration and support restricting the legal status of specific ethnic groups because they view them as harming the culture of the host nation. #Quote by Dale Hanson Bourke
Status Quo quotes by Terry Eagleton
#238. The 'healthy' sign, for Barthes, is one which draws attention to its own arbitrariness - which does not try to palm itself off as 'natural' but which, in the very moment of conveying a meaning, communicates something of its own relative, artificial status as well. …Signs which pass themselves off as natural, which offer themselves as the only conceivable way of viewing the world, are by that token authoritarian and ideological. It is one of the functions of ideology to 'naturalize' social reality, to make it seem as innocent and unchangeable as Nature itself. Ideology seeks to convert culture into Nature, and the 'natural' sign is one of its weapons. Saluting a flag, or agreeing that Western democracy represents the true meaning of the word 'freedom', become the most obvious, spontaneous responses in the world. Ideology, in this sense, is a kind of contemporary mythology, a realm which has purged itself of ambiguity and alternative possibility. #Quote by Terry Eagleton
Status Quo quotes by Grace Lee Boggs
#239. We urgently need a paradigm shift in our concept of the purposes and practices of education. We need to leave behind the concept of education as a passport to more money and higher status in the future and replace it with a concept of education as an ongoing process that enlists the tremendous energies and creativity of schoolchildren in rebuilding and respiriting our communities and our cities now, in the present. #Quote by Grace Lee Boggs
Status Quo quotes by Ingvar Kamprad
#240. Simple routine have a greater impact. It is not just to cut costs that we avoid luxury hotels. We do not need fancy cars, posh titles, tailor made uniforms or other status symbols. #Quote by Ingvar Kamprad
Status Quo quotes by Stephen H. Wolinsky
#241. Karma theory is a spiritual philosophy used to explain and maintain the economic status of Asia. #Quote by Stephen H. Wolinsky
Status Quo quotes by Helen Smith
#242. Colleges have now become privileged finishing schools for girls. Except rather than teaching manners, they teach women that men are the enemy and men are treated as such on campus, unless they go along with the program that keeps them cowed or striking a PC pose. Many men have just decided that they don't belong in college and are going on strike, consciously or unconsciously. How will this affect their wages and lifestyles in the coming decades? If nothing changes and more and more men drop out of college or never attend, how will this change society? Will men continue to become the other, and be further relegated to second-class status where women and society are afraid of them and they are hesitant to participate fully in the public sphere? Is this already happening? The next chapter explores these questions. #Quote by Helen Smith
Status Quo quotes by Safiya Umoja Noble
#243. If one holds power, one can withstand or buffer misrepresentation at a group level and often at the individual level. Marginalized and oppressed people are linked to the status of their group and are less likely to be afforded individual status and insulation... #Quote by Safiya Umoja Noble
Status Quo quotes by Brian Aldiss
#244. Science fiction is the search for a definition of mankind and his status in the universe which will stand in our advanced but confused state of knowledge (science), and is characteristically cast in the Gothic or post Gothic mode. #Quote by Brian Aldiss
Status Quo quotes by Masha Gessen
#245. It was in May 1934 that the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the USSR granted Birobidzhan the status of the Jewish Autonomous Region, a major step toward achieving the coveted status of a national republic, the apogee of Soviet-style autonomism. At #Quote by Masha Gessen
Status Quo quotes by John Wyndham
#246. In temperate countries, where man had succeeded in putting most forms of nature save his own under a reasonable degree of restraint, the status of the triffid was thus made quite clear. But in the tropics, particularly in the dense forest areas, they quickly became a scourge. #Quote by John Wyndham
