Stopping In Life quotes by Lisa Unger
#1. How many people can you claim truly care about you? I mean, not just the people in your life who are fun to hang out with, not just the people who you love and trust. But people who feel good when you are happy and successful, feel bad when you are hurt or going through a hard time, people who would walk away from their lives for a little while to help you with yours. Not many. I felt that from Jake and I wasn't sure how to handle it. Because there's another side to it, you know. When someone is invested in your well-being, like your parents, for example, you become responsible for them in a way. Anything you do to hurt yourself hurts them. I already felt responsible for too many people that way. You're not really free when people care about you; not if you care about them. #Quote by Lisa Unger
Stopping In Life quotes by Michael Ondaatje
#2. In a breaker's yard you discover anything can have a new life, be reborn as part of a car or railway carriage, or a shovel blade. You take that older life and you link it to a stranger. #Quote by Michael Ondaatje
Stopping In Life quotes by Anthon St. Maarten
#3. It is not true that we only get to choose our friends, but not our family. We actually choose our families before birth. It is part of our spiritual life plan before we arrive on this planet. And as that plan unfolds, some of us will be blessed with abundant love and support from our families, while others will not. Either way, it will all be part of our original plan. Because sometimes we need a lousy family to get us started on our journey towards personal growth, success and spiritual fulfillment. But if someday you reach a tipping point, where the lack of family love and support no longer serves your path towards fulfilling your true destiny... it is never too late to find a new tribe. Sometimes a life plan also demands that we choose our families more than once in a lifetime. #Quote by Anthon St. Maarten
Stopping In Life quotes by Joe Schwartz
#4. Momma always said when Randy got an idea in his head it was more likely to come attached to a foot in his ass than a check in the bank. #Quote by Joe Schwartz
Stopping In Life quotes by Augusten Burroughs
#5. Writing has enriched my life in ways I never imaged. #Quote by Augusten Burroughs
Stopping In Life quotes by Mollie Panter-Downes
#6. Before the war cut her life so sharply in two, she had cherished her possessions jealously. ... Now that she had discovered the important truth that her flesh was as brittle as theirs and far more precious, the safety of china cupids had become irrelevant. #Quote by Mollie Panter-Downes
Stopping In Life quotes by Beth Grant
#7. The ultimate expression of Christ's life-changing compassion can only be realized, multiplied, and sustained toward God's ultimate purposes through individuals working together in the local community of faith. Anything less than this is weakened in its holistic capacity to bring salvation, healing, discipleship, restoration, and the fulfillment of God's purposes in the lives of the poor, the exploited, the captive, and the oppressed! #Quote by Beth Grant
Stopping In Life quotes by Richard Rohr
#8. In the first half of life, we fight the devil and have the illusion and inflation of "winning" now and then; in the second half of life, we always lose because we are invariably fighting God. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Stopping In Life quotes by Albert Einstein
#9. Then there occurred to me the 'glucklichste Gedanke meines Lebens,' the happiest thought of my life, in the following form. The gravitational field has only a relative existence in a way similar to the electric field generated by magnetoelectric induction. Because for an observer falling freely from the roof of a house there exists-at least in his immediate surroundings-no gravitational field [his italics]. Indeed, if the observer drops some bodies then these remain relative to him in a state of rest or of uniform motion, independent of their particular chemical or physical nature (in this consideration the air resistance is, of course, ignored). The observer therefore has the right to interpret his state as 'at rest.' Because of this idea, the uncommonly peculiar experimental law that in the gravitational field all bodies fall with the same acceleration attained at once a deep physical meaning. Namely, if there were to exist just one single object that falls in the gravitational field in a way different from all others, then with its help the observer could realize that he is ina gravitational field and is falling in it. If such an object does not exist, however-as experience has shown with great accuracy-then the observer lacks any objective means of perceiving himself as falling in a gravitational field. Rather he has the right to consider his state as one of rest and his environment as field-free relative to gravitation. The experimentally known matter independence of the #Quote by Albert Einstein
Stopping In Life quotes by R.K. Ryals
#10. Life shouldn't be about good-byes, but I felt like mine was. I was a revolving door. There was no way to enter my existence without exiting. In and out. Like breathing. Only it was the kind of breathing that hurt. ~Hawthorne #Quote by R.K. Ryals
Stopping In Life quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#11. Cowardice, as distinguished from panic, is almost always simply a lack of ability to suspend the functioning of the imagination. Learning to suspend your imagination and live completely in the very second of the present with no before and no after is the greatest gift a soldier can acquire. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Stopping In Life quotes by Laura Restrepo
#12. I haven't been quite as smart about living as I have been about working. At work, everything was about precision and efficiency, while in my life everything has been about daydreaming, longing, and confusion. #Quote by Laura Restrepo
Stopping In Life quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#13. RACK, n. An argumentative implement formerly much used in persuading devotees of a false faith to embrace the living truth. As a call to the unconverted the rack never had any particular efficacy, and is now held in light popular esteem. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Stopping In Life quotes by Susane Colasanti
#14. It's wild how unexpected experiences can shape your life in ways you never saw coming. #Quote by Susane Colasanti
Stopping In Life quotes by Jan Karon
#15. Did I tell you how much I liked your sermon on Sunday?" "You did not, or I would have remembered it." "Well, it was glorious. You were very bold, I thought, to preach on sin. Hardly anyone wants to hear sin preached." "Mainstream Christianity glosses over the fact that it isn't just a question of giving up sin, but of doing something far more difficult - giving up our right to ourselves." He made the turn onto the busy highway toward Wesley, which always, somehow, seemed a shock to his senses. "The sin life in us must be transformed into the spiritual life." "How?" "Through sacrifice and obedience." She smiled ironically. "How do you think that will be received by those of us who come to sit in a comfortable pew and find a hot seat instead? "They'll just have to go across the street until I've finished preaching on that particular subject." She laughed with delight. "You're different these days." He laughed with her. "I pray so," he said. #Quote by Jan Karon
Stopping In Life quotes by William Langland
#16. First impressions of mediaeval life are usually coloured by the courtly romances of Malory and his later refiners. Chaucer brings us down to reality, but his people belong to a prosperous middle-class world, on holiday and in holiday mood. Piers Plowman stands alone as a revelation of the ignorance and misery of the lower classes, whose multiplied grievances came to a head in the Peasants' Revolt of 1381. #Quote by William Langland
Stopping In Life quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#17. Our hearts and minds desire clarity. We like to have a clear picture of a situation, a clear view of how things fit together, and clear insight into our own and the world's problems. But just as in nature colors and shapes mingle without clear-cut distinctions, human life doesn't offer the clarity we are looking for. The borders between love and hate, evil and good, beauty and ugliness, heroism and cowardice, care and neglect, guilt and blamelessness are mostly vague, ambiguous, and hard to discern. #Quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen
Stopping In Life quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#18. Falling in love is the most beautiful wonder. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Stopping In Life quotes by Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud
#19. The Founder-Director purposely designed the building in a U-shape, in the interior of which is a courtyard with a central fountain, to reflect the introspective nature of a true Muslim, a universal and perfect man. These interior parts of the building are hidden from the outside in contrast to secularized buildings which face the road and are exposed to the busy traffic of secular life and are therefore without real privacy and introspective spirit. #Quote by Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud
Stopping In Life quotes by Zelig Pliskin
#20. The thoughts you think create your feelings and emotions. The thoughts you think are the key factor in what you say and do. The entire quality of your life is totally dependent on the thoughts you choose to think focus on. Choose thoughts of gratitude. You will be tremendously grateful that you did. #Quote by Zelig Pliskin
Stopping In Life quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#21. People took such awful chances with chemicals and their bodies because they wanted the quality of their lives to improve. They lived in ugly places where there were only ugly things to do. They didn't own doodley-squat, so they couldn't improve their surroundings. so they did their best to make their insides beautiful instead. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Stopping In Life quotes by William Zinsser
#22. The final advantage is the same that applies in every other competitive venture. If you would like to write better than everyone else, you have to want to write better than everyone else. You must take an obsessive pride in the smallest details of your craft. And you must be willing to defend what you've written against the various middlemen--editors, agents, and publishers--whose sights may be different from yours, whose standards are not as high. Too many writers are browbeaten into settling for less than their best. #Quote by William Zinsser
Stopping In Life quotes by August Wilson
#23. ROSE: I been standing with you! I been right here with you, Troy. I got a life, too. I gave eighteen years of my life to stand in the same spot with you. Don't you think I ever wanted other things? Don't you think I had dreams and hopes? What about my life? What about me. Don't you think it ever crossed my mind to want to know other men? That I wanted to lay up somewhere and forget about my responsibilities? That I wanted someone to make me laugh so I could feel good? You not the only one who's got wants and needs. But I held on to you, Troy. I took all my feelings, my wants and needs, my dreams...and I buried them inside you. I planted a seed and watched and prayed over it. I planted myself inside you and waited to bloom. And it didn't take me not eighteen years to find out the soil was hard and rocky and it wasn't never gonna bloom. But I held on to you. I held you tighter. You was my husband. I owed you everything I had. Every part of me I could find to give you. And upstairs in that room...with the darkness falling in on me...I gave everything I had to try and erase the doubt that you wasn't the fines man in the world. And wherever you was going...I wanted to be there with you. Cause you was my husband. Cause that's the only way I was gonna survive as your wife. You always taking about what you give...and what you don't have to give. But you take too. You take...and you don't even know nobody's giving! #Quote by August Wilson
Stopping In Life quotes by Mark Twain
#24. Advertisements contain the only truths to be relied on in a newspaper. #Quote by Mark Twain
Stopping In Life quotes by Paul Auster
#25. At any given moment, four or five separate dialogues were going on across the table, but because people weren't necessarily talking to the person next to them, these dialogues kept intersecting with one another, causing abrupt shifts in the pairings of the speakers, so that everyone seemed to be taking part in all the conversations at the same time, simultaneously chattering away about his or her own life and eavesdropping on everyone else as well. Add to this the frequent interruptions from the children, the coming and goings of the different courses, the pouring of wine, the dropped plates, overturned glasses, and spilled condiments, the dinner began to resemble an elaborate, hastily improvised vaudeville routine. #Quote by Paul Auster
Stopping In Life quotes by Donald McKay
#26. My first novel took 12 years to complete because life got in my way. #Quote by Donald McKay
Stopping In Life quotes by Brooke Burgess
#27. The space between between breaths is measured in moments. But the space between Truths..? Lifetimes. #Quote by Brooke Burgess
Stopping In Life quotes by Alan W. Watts
#28. The art of living ... is neither careless drifting on the one hand nor fearful clinging to the past on the other. It consists in being sensitive to each moment, in regarding it as utterly new and unique, in having the mind open and wholly receptive. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Stopping In Life quotes by Louise Hay
#29. Gratitude BRINGS MORE to be grateful about, so today I make the point of expressing gratitude for everything in my LIFE! #Quote by Louise Hay
Stopping In Life quotes by Shakieb Orgunwall
#30. What people think of you is only what they think of themselves. They look at you and see the maladies, the faults they've been carrying within themselves for the longest time. And they identified each flaw they found exactly because of this familiarity and acquaintance with their very own symptoms. How else did they recognize them in you? #Quote by Shakieb Orgunwall
Stopping In Life quotes by Jess Walter
#31. That summer, the one you'll never forget, every movie house beamed the same set of thematic and narrative images - the same Avatar, same Harry Potter, same Fast and the Furious, flickering pictures stitched in our minds that replaced our own memories, archetypal stories that became our shared history, that taught us what to expect from life, that defined our values. What was that but a religion? Also, #Quote by Jess Walter
Stopping In Life quotes by Judith Lewis Herman
#32. Recovery unfolds in three stages. The central task of the first stage is the establishment of safety. The central task of the second stage is remembrance and mourning. The central focus of the third stage is reconnection with ordinary life. #Quote by Judith Lewis Herman
Stopping In Life quotes by Jeet Banerjee
#33. Small businesses forget how to be social. Everyone tries to do social media when they should just try being social. To be successful with social media, you have to treat each individual person just like you would in real life by establishing a genuine connection with them. #Quote by Jeet Banerjee
