Submission quotes by Francis George
#1. That question in marriage is mutual submission, really - the next verse goes on: "husbands love your wife as Christ loves the Church." #Quote by Francis George
Submission quotes by Candace Knoebel
#2. He was desire, and I was his prisoner, chained up by his kisses. Submissive to his touch. #Quote by Candace Knoebel
Submission quotes by George Eliot
#3. The intensity of her religious disposition, the coercion it exercised over her life, was but one aspect of a nature altogether ardent, theoretic, and intellectually consequent: and with such a nature struggling in the bands of a narrow teaching, hemmed in by a social life which seemed nothing but a labyrinth of petty courses, a walled-in maze of small paths that led no whither, the outcome was sure to strike others as at once exaggeration and inconsistency. The thing which seemed to her best, she wanted to justify by the completest knowledge; and not to live in a pretended admission of rules which were never acted on. Into this soul-hunger as yet all her youthful passion was poured; the union which attracted her was one that would deliver her from her girlish subjection to her own ignorance, and give her the freedom of voluntary submission to a guide who would take her along the grandest path. #Quote by George Eliot
Submission quotes by Jacquelyn Frank
#4. Say my name," he countered, his hand wrapping around the irresistible length of her neck. This time it was he who whispered in her ear. "Say it."
"I do not know what it is," she said, her breath rushing out of her in an astounding rhythm.
"Yes, you do. I feel it. You only have to search for it inside of us." "Us" was the appropriate term. It was almost impossible in that moment for them to discern whose thoughts belonged to whom.
Gideon was the oldest of them all. There was no one older, so no one who had once known his power name could possibly be alive. His parents were dead. His Siddah were dead. If Legna discovered his name, the ramifications were inconceivably serious. He would be putting his very existence into her hands. He would be placing all of his power at her fingertips, gifting her with the potential for his absolute submission. Legna tried to step back from him, the shock of what he was offering her too much to bear. But he had made sure to have his hands on her and now kept her tight and close within them.
"I cannot," she whispered, her body beginning to shake. "No one should know that. No one. I am not strong enough to keep it, Gideon. Any male Mind Demon could take it from me!"
"You are stronger than you think, Neliss."
"Not strong enough. Please, do not ask this of me." She pushed at him, jerked herself backward, using the weight of her body to try and break free. He held her for a moment longer, looking deeply into her panic-st #Quote by Jacquelyn Frank
Submission quotes by Anne Truitt
#5. Perhaps the human lesson is always submission. We have a choice: to rebel or to recognize our powerlessness while maintaining our faith. #Quote by Anne Truitt
Submission quotes by Undrai Fizer
#6. Intentional living will eradicate the need of excuse as well as the constant submission to distraction. Allow yourself to "become wealthy in self-significance!" Allow yourself to become enriched in Spirit. Remember, there is no trouble. Trouble is "created" and established when we "see ourselves inferior" to what we are facing. When we lack power, we lack movement! When we lack hope, we lack momentum! Trouble will disappear "as soon as our Mindset becomes enriched!" When we can afford to see things clearly, without depression or self-doubt, we have awakened our new heart! #Quote by Undrai Fizer
Submission quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#7. King= a man who excels in inflicting injury to others until he terrorizes everybody into submission #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Submission quotes by E.L. James
#8. So you'll let me exert my will over you. I will gain a great deal of pleasure, joy even, in your submission. The more you submit, the greater my joy ... it's a very simple equation. #Quote by E.L. James
Submission quotes by Eleanor Perenyi
#9. A gift of flowers to a woman implies that she is as deliciously desirable as the blossoms themselves; but there may be another and hidden message, contained in the old-fashioned phrases like 'shy as a violet, 'clinging vine,' not originally conceived as pejoratives, that tells more of the truth - which is that flowers are also emblems of feminine submission. #Quote by Eleanor Perenyi
Submission quotes by J.I. Packer
#10. To summarize, then, it appears that Christian holiness is a number of things together. It has both outward and inward aspects. Holiness is a matter of both action and motivation, conduct and character, divine grace and human effort, obedience and creativity, submission and initiative, consecration to God and commitment to people, self-discipline and self-giving, righteousness and love. It is a matter of Spirit-led law-keeping, a walk, or course of life, in the Spirit that displays the fruit of the Spirit (Christlikeness of attitude and disposition). It is a matter of seeking to imitate Jesus' way of behaving, through depending on Jesus for deliverance from carnal self-absorption and for discernment of spiritual needs and possibilities. #Quote by J.I. Packer
Submission quotes by Flemming Rose
#11. If a believer demands that I, as a nonbeliever, observe his taboos in the public domain, he is not asking for my respect, but for my submission. #Quote by Flemming Rose
Submission quotes by Alex Grey
#12. There is a need for individuals to find ways of transcending their limiting identities, of periodically committing egocide. The submission to God by following transformative spiritual practices can more safely engage the death-rebirth transcendence axis. Some cultures have elaborate and cathartic rites of passage for every stage of life. Our culture has not fostered safe death and rebirth rituals. So people create their own, consciously or unconsciously. #Quote by Alex Grey
Submission quotes by Eugene Ionesco
#13. Oh words, what crimes are committed in your name?

~Jack or The Submission #Quote by Eugene Ionesco
Submission quotes by Kamala Markandaya
#14. She was no longer a child, to be cowed or forced into submission, but a grown woman with a definite purpose and an invincible determination. #Quote by Kamala Markandaya
Submission quotes by Timothy Snyder
#15. For tyrants, the lesson of the Reichstag fire is that one moment of shock enables an eternity of submission. For us, the lesson is that our natural fear and grief must not enable the destruction of our institutions. #Quote by Timothy Snyder
Submission quotes by M. Scott Peck
#16. Yet the opposite style of leadership, which the guilt-ridden neurotic so often exerts over his feelings, is equally self-destructive. In this style the slave-owner is so obsessed with the fear that his slaves (feelings) might get out of control and so determined that they should cause him no trouble that he routinely beats them into submission and punishes them severely at the #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Submission quotes by Tiffany Reisz
#17. But she wanted him to be in charge, so he took charge as a gift to her and because her submission was a gift to him that it gave her pleasure to give. #Quote by Tiffany Reisz
Submission quotes by Mary Oliver
#18. How many mysteries have you seen in your lifetime? How many nets pulled full over the boat's side, each silver body ready or not falling into submission? How many roses in early summer uncurling above the pale sands then falling back in unfathomable willingness? And what can you say? Glory to the rose and the leaf, to the seed, to the silver fish. Glory to time and the wild fields, and to joy. And to grief's shock and torpor, its near swoon. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Submission quotes by Zadie Smith
#19. What do we want from our mothers when we are children? Complete submission. Oh, it's very nice and rational and respectable to say that a woman has every right to her life, to her ambitions, to her needs, and so on--it's what I've always demanded myself--but as a child, no, the truth is it's a war of attrition, rationality doesn't come into it, not one bit, all you want from your mother is that she once and for all admit that she is your mother and only your mother, and that her battle with the rest of life is over. She has to lay down arms and come to you. And if she doesn't do it, then it's really a war, and it was a war between my mother and me. Only as an adult did I come to truly admire her--especially in the last, painful years of her life--for all that she had done to claw some space in this world for herself. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Submission quotes by Mark Strand
#20. The number of people writing poems is vast, and their reasons for doing so are many, that much can be surmised from the stacks of submissions. #Quote by Mark Strand
Submission quotes by Brock Lesnar
#21. I lift weights, but that's not my main focus. I'm a fighter now, and I want to evolve and make myself a well-rounded fighter, so obviously I'm not going to leave any stone unturned, when it comes to submissions, submission defense, striking, knees, leg kicks, and also learning to defend everything. It's not just an offensive sport because you're going to take some punches and you're going to give some punches. You've got to be able to handle both sides of the spectrum. I've brought in a number of highly trained trainers to help me evolve, and I believe we've left no stone unturned. #Quote by Brock Lesnar
Submission quotes by Veronica Roth
#22. Yes, I'm sure it will be very peaceful when we are all dead or cowering in submission under the threat of mind control or stuck in an endless simulation. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Submission quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft
#23. The being who patiently endures injustice, and silently bears insults, will soon become unjust, or unable to discern right from wrong. #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft
Submission quotes by Bryant McGill
#24. For the vile human pigs in life; the sloppy, disheveled, uncaring dregs, the ungrateful, and especially for the vicious, negative emotional peasants - there will only continue to be the hard and painful lessons you so desperately need. The invisible hand will hold you in your wretched place until your last breath - unless you evolve. If you are cruel and ignorant the invisible fist will pound you into oblivion until you submit, humble yourself and soften your hard heart. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Submission quotes by Allyson James
#25. With effort, Nella shoved the vision aside. "Never." She drew herself up. "I am a princess of Ariel. I would never - "
"Yes, you would. You will. But I'm glad to hear you get mad at me. That means whoever is chasing you, whoever is trying to make you his slave didn't break you. You're whole and strong."
"Then why do you want to break me?"
"I don't." Rio stepped closer to her. "I want you to submit to me."
"What is the difference?"
"There's a big difference. Submission is complete trust. It's giving yourself and your pleasure to the hands of your lover. You'll free yourself, and give yourself entirely to me."
"If it is so freeing, why do you not submit yourself?"
Rio laughed, a sound so filled with mirth it made her want to smile along. "Tell you what, beautiful. You submit wholly and completely to me - let me train you to be my sub - then I'll submit to you."
Nella gave him a suspicious look. "Would you?"
"I never go back on my word, sweetheart. We'll get Rees to help out if you don't believe me. He'd be happy to chain me up, although not for the same reasons. He thinks I'm a pain in the ass. #Quote by Allyson James
Submission quotes by Albert Memmi
#26. Colonized painting, for instance, is balanced between poles. From excessive submission to Europe resulting in depersonalization, it passes to such a violent return to self that it is obnoxious and esthetically illusory. The right balance not being found, the self-accusation continues. Before and during the revolt, the colonized always considers the colonizer as a model or as an antithesis. He continues to struggle against him. He was torn between what he was and what he wanted to be, and now he is making of himself. Nonetheless, the painful discord with himself continues.
In order to witness the colonized's complete cure, his alienation must completely cease. We must await the complete disappearance of colonization
including the period of revolt. #Quote by Albert Memmi
Submission quotes by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
#27. Most of all, I think it was the novels that saved me from submission. I was young, but the first tiny, meek beginnings of my rebellion had already clicked into place. #Quote by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Submission quotes by Vernon Richards
#28. "The true Islamic concept of peace goes something like this: "Peace comes through submission to Muhammad and his concept of Allah" (i.e. Islam). As such the Islamic concept of peace, meaning making the whole world Muslim, is actually a mandate for war. It was inevitable and unavoidable that the conflict would eventually reach our borders, and so it has." #Quote by Vernon Richards
Submission quotes by Quinn Loftis
#29. Submission was never meant to be a negative action. Submission is an act of love and service because someone must lead, and the others must follow. Your greatest act of love to your mate is when you submit and that comes in many forms. #Quote by Quinn Loftis
Submission quotes by George Eliot
#30. A proud woman who has learned to submit carries all her pride to the reinforcement of her submission, and looks down with severe superiority on all feminine assumption as unbecoming. #Quote by George Eliot
Submission quotes by William Hendriksen
#31. When grace changes the heart, submission out of fear changes to submission out of love, and true humility is born. #Quote by William Hendriksen
Submission quotes by A. Zavarelli
#32. It was Brighton. She made me fucking insane. Her beauty and absolute perfection dissolved any moral boundaries that may have existed within me. #Quote by A. Zavarelli
Submission quotes by Rory Miller
#33. It is much easier and safer to scare someone into submission than to beat them into submission. #Quote by Rory Miller
Submission quotes by Michael Makai
#34. Make no mistake about it, a perfect storm is forming, and it's coming our way. Its sudden onset and fierce intensity will surprise even its most vocal proponents and cheerleaders. Many people who are now in the fetish lifestyle will vainly leap into the fray, foolishly thinking that this will be an orderly battle of opposing ideas that can be fought civilly and rationally. They will quickly learn that they are tragically wrong in this assumption, and many of them will pay a terrible price emotionally, socially, and financially as a result. #Quote by Michael Makai
Submission quotes by A. Edward Newton
#35. My advice to any one who may be temped by some volume with an inscription of the author on its fly-leaf or title-page is, 'Yield with coy submission' - and at once. While such books make frightful inroads on one's bank account, I have regretted only my economies, never my extravagances. #Quote by A. Edward Newton
Submission quotes by Peter Abrahams
#36. A man can submit today in order to resist tomorrow. My submission had been such. And because I had not been free to show my real feeling, to voice my true thoughts, my submission had bred bitterness and anger. And there were nearly ten million others who had submitted with equal anger and bitterness. #Quote by Peter Abrahams
Submission quotes by Andy Stanley
#37. The starting block for people who are going to stay in love is mutual submission. #Quote by Andy Stanley
Submission quotes by Erich Fromm
#38. The common element in both submission and domination is the symbiotic nature of relatedness. Both persons involved have lost their integrity and freedom; they live on each other and from each other, satisfying their craving for closeness, yet suffering from the lack of inner strength and self-reliance which would require freedom and independence, and furthermore constantly threatened by the conscious or unconscious hostility which is bound to arise from the symbiotic relationship.10 The realization of the submissive (masochistic) or the domineering (sadistic) passion never leads to satisfaction. #Quote by Erich Fromm
Submission quotes by Thomas Moore
#39. Besides, the story is ambivalent and mysterious in its ending. Is this Alkestis returning from down below? Why does she have a veil over her face? Could it be that when we forcefully bring back to life what has been lost through love what we get is only a shate of its former reality? Maybe we can never succeed fully in restoring the soul to life. Maybe she will always be veiled and at least partially shielded from the rigors of actual life. Love demands a submission that is total. #Quote by Thomas Moore
Submission quotes by Joseph Frank
#40. Years later, when Dostoevsky was reading the book of Job once again, he wrote his wife that it put him into such a state of "unhealthy rapture" that he almost cried. "It's a strange thing, Anya, this books is one of the first in my life which made an impression on me; I was then still almost a child." There is an allusion to this revelatory experience of the young boy in The Brothers Karamazov, where Zosima recalls being struck by a reading of the book of Job at the age of eight and feeling that "for the first time in my life I consciously received the seed of God's word in my heart" (9:287). This seed was one day to flower into the magnificent growth of Ivan Karamazov's passionate protest against God's injustice and the Legend of the Grand Inquisitor, but it also grew into Alyosha's submission to the awesomeness of the infinite before which Job too had once bowed his head, and into Zosima's teaching of the necessity for an ultimate faith in the goodness of God's mysterious wisdom. It is Dostoevsky's genius as a writer to have been able to feel (and to express) both these extremes of rejection and acceptance. While the tension of this polarity may have developed out of the ambivalence of Dostoevsky's psychodynamic relationship with his father, what is important is to see how early it was transposed and projected into the religious symbolism of the eternal problem of theodicy. #Quote by Joseph Frank
Submission quotes by Jack L. Pyke
#41. The real beauty behind submission is defined by how a man submits with no chains present, no physical restraint, just a pure will to allow someone else to control the moment, here and on full and stunning display. #Quote by Jack L. Pyke
Submission quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#42. Of the spirit of women. - The spiritual power of a woman is best demonstrated by her sacrificing her own spirit to that of a man out of love of him and of his spirit but then, despite this sacrifice, immediately evolving _a new spirit_ within the new domain, originally alien to her nature, to which the man's disposition impels her. (from Assorted Opinions & Maxims 272)

-- This is the first time among years of reading Nietzsche that i agree with his words on women: this aphorism captures a few quintessences of true and gallant womanhood, namely the will(ingness) to sacrifice (not only to others but also to the necessity that arises in a context), the balance between creative and reactive, the free-spiritedness out of such balance without conceit and swagger, and the malleability/fluidity without blind submission. (It is momentous to note that the man-woman dynamic is not binary, and that man/womanhood is not a given in one's biology - it's more something that evolves in a person over time.) #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Submission quotes by Jessica Benjamin
#43. Domination, I have argued, is a twisting of the bonds of love. Domination does not repress the desire for recognition; rather, it enlists and transforms it. Beginning in the breakdown of the tension between self and other, domination proceeds through the alternate paths of identifying with or submitting to powerful others who personify the fantasy of omnipotence. For the person who takes this route to establishing his own power, there is an absence where the other should be. This void is filled with fantasy material in which the other appears so dangerous or so weak - or both - that he threatens the self and must be controlled. A vicious cycle begins: the more the other is subjugated, the less he is experienced as a human subject and the more distance or violence the self must deploy against him. #Quote by Jessica Benjamin
Submission quotes by Elisabeth Elliot
#44. Supreme authority in both church and home has been divinely vested in the male as the representative of Christ, who is Head of the church. It is in willing submission rather than grudging capitulation that the woman in the church (whether married or single) and the wife in the home find their fulfillment. #Quote by Elisabeth Elliot
Submission quotes by Danielle Monsch
#45. Above her like this, he was a warrior god, hot and hard, demanding complete submission. #Quote by Danielle Monsch
Submission quotes by Amitav Ghosh
#46. What would it be like if I had something to defend - a home, a country, a family - and I found myself attacked by these ghostly men, these trusting boys? How do you fight an enemy who fights with neither enmity nor anger but in submission to orders from superiors, without protest and without conscience? #Quote by Amitav Ghosh
Submission quotes by Tom Paulin
#47. Hitler bombed London into submission but in fact it created a sense of national solidarity. #Quote by Tom Paulin
Submission quotes by Celestine Matoive
#48. But in that one moment, I died a thousand deaths only to be resurrected as a creature who would only live for you. To do your will. To sit at your feet, if it be your command. I didn't even know you. But I loved you with every atom, iota and ounce of my being. You could do or say anything and I would love you for it. Because it was you. #Quote by Celestine Matoive
Submission quotes by Paul Ricoeur
#49. We must recognize the fact that philosophy at the present time is entirely at an impasse concerning the problem of the origin of values. This theoretical failure is reflected in the practical antinomy between submission and rebellion that infects the daily concerns of education, politics, and ethics. If no decision can be made at this level, we must retrace our steps, extricate ourselves from the impasse, and try to gain access, by means of a nonethical approach, to the problem of autonomy and obedience. #Quote by Paul Ricoeur
Submission quotes by Riley Murphy
#50. There was nothing more powerful. Not one thing better to boost a Dom's ego than being a sub's everything. He'd asked her for everything, but this wasn't the same thing at all. In this case he was the need in a literal sense and damn, it was empowering. Scintillating. Dangerous because now that he'd got his first taste of it, he wanted more. #Quote by Riley Murphy
Submission quotes by Brandon J. O'Brien
#51. Leadership is a Western virtue; submission is a biblical virtue. #Quote by Brandon J. O'Brien
Submission quotes by Matt Chandler
#52. When the early Church recited the Apostles Creed, it was simultaneously their greatest act of rebellion, and their greatest act of submission. #Quote by Matt Chandler
Submission quotes by Emma Goldman
#53. Emancipation should make it possible for woman to be human in the truest sense. Everything within her that craves assertion and activity should reach its fullest expression; all artificial barriers should be broken, and the road towards greater freedom cleared of every trace of centuries of submission and slavery. #Quote by Emma Goldman
Submission quotes by Prashant Chopra
#54. This is how you will remember that you are mine. Every painful touch, every
aching hug, will remind you - that you are a slave - to me. #Quote by Prashant Chopra
Submission quotes by Goldwin Smith
#55. The Roman legions were formed in the first instance of citizen soldiers, who yet had been made to submit to a rigid discipline, and to feel that in that submission lay their strength. #Quote by Goldwin Smith

Submission quotes by Onno Van Der Hart
#58. First, there is the separation cry, which is a young mammal's distressed vocalization when separated from a caretaker. This cry is actually an attempt to regain attachment upon separation, and thus we call it the attachment cry. Other defensive subsystems include hypervigilance and scanning the environment, flight, freeze with analgesia, fight, total submission with anesthesia, and recuperative states of rest, wound care, isolation from the group, and gradual return to daily activities #Quote by Onno Van Der Hart
Submission quotes by Laurie R. King
#59. Ma'alesh; no matter; never mind; what can you do but accept things as they are? Ma'alesh, your pot overturned in the fire; ma'alesh, your prize mare died; ma'alesh, you lost all your possessions and half your family. The word was the everyday essence of Islam - which itself, after all, means submission. #Quote by Laurie R. King
Submission quotes by Charles Hodge
#60. Prayer is the converse of the soul with God. Therein we manifest or express to Him our reverence, and love for His divine perfection, our gratitude for all His mercies, our penitence for our sins, our hope in His forgiving love, our submission to His authority, our confidence in His care, our desires for His favour, and for the providential and spiritual blessings needed for ourselves and others. #Quote by Charles Hodge
Submission quotes by Zoe Blake
#61. In my household, you will be treated as a child. You shall have no responsibilities beyond pleasing me. You will have a nanny who will see to all of your needs. During the day you will receive instruction from her. You will learn your letters and numbers. At night, you will receive instruction from me." Penelope licked her lips. Not wanting to speak out of turn, she still needed to know. "What kind of instruction?" Alex ran his thumb over her wet bottom lip, the desire heavy in his gaze. "Submission, my dear Penelope. #Quote by Zoe Blake
Submission quotes by Richard J. Foster
#62. Submission reaches the end of its tether when it becomes destructive. #Quote by Richard J. Foster
Submission quotes by Diane Jacobs
#63. John's explosion left Abigail in a quandary. Priding herself on being a good wife, she cheerfully accepted that her main role was to soothe the cares of her adored if sometimes baffling spouse. Being a wife required at least the appearance of submission. On the other hand, it would be cruel to abandon a husband altogether to his follies when it was so easy to correct him with a little tact. #Quote by Diane Jacobs
Submission quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith
#64. The huge capacity to purchase submission that goes with any large sum of money, well, this we have. This is a power of which we should all be aware. #Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith
Submission quotes by Laura Esquivel
#65. A woman, silent, voiceless, a mere woman who didn't bear on her shoulders the enormous responsibility of building the conquest with her words. A woman, who, contrary to what would be expected, felt relief in reclaiming her condition of submission, for it was a much more familiar sensation to be an object at the service of men than to be a creator of destiny #Quote by Laura Esquivel
Submission quotes by Nikki Sex
#66. Fear, anxiety, arousal, and pain; all are emotions and sensations. They are neither right, nor are they wrong; good nor bad. They are simply passions, a most important part of life. Feel them, fully experience them, surrender to them, and learn to accept them. As a submissive, you must let go. André Chevalier #Quote by Nikki Sex
Submission quotes by William Deihl
#67. …the gavel became an extension of his arm and he used it to bludgeon the court into submission. #Quote by William Deihl
Submission quotes by Ree Drummond
#68. Later, when the party had thinned out and Betsy and I ran to the ladies' room to primp, she remarked on Marlboro Man's chivalry, sighing over his sweet display of kindness.
Then she moved closer to me, zeroing in and focusing on the general area of my chin.
"Oh…my…God," she said, covering her mouth with her hand. "What's wrong with your face?"
My stomach fell to the floor. I found a bottle of Jergens on the bathroom counter and began rubbing it in, determined to beat the flaking skin into submission. #Quote by Ree Drummond
Submission quotes by Samuel Johnson
#69. Our senses, our appetites, and our passions, are our lawful and faithful guides, in most things that relate solely to this life; and, therefore, by the hourly necessity of consulting them, we gradually sink into an implicit submission, and habitual confidence. Every act of compliance with their motions facilitates a second compliance, every new step towards depravity is made with less reluctance than the former, and thus the descent to life merely sensual is perpetually accelerated. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Submission quotes by Samuel Johnson
#70. Patience and submission are very carefully to be distinguished from cowardice and indolence. We are not to repine, but we may lawfully struggle; for the calamities of life, like the necessities of Nature, are calls to labor and diligence. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Submission quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#71. God cannot be understood by logical reasoning but only by submission. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Submission quotes by Candace Bushnell
#72. Zizi was young and often confused about how to live his life, and when he made a choice he clung to it with fierce resolve, as if to beat his uncertainty into submission. #Quote by Candace Bushnell
Submission quotes by A. Zavarelli
#73. It wasn't desire, it was biology. My body was adapting to the situation. Doing what it needed to survive. That, I was certain of. Because if I had liked it, liked the hands of this monster, that would have made me a monster too. #Quote by A. Zavarelli
Submission quotes by Larry Hagman
#74. It's my firm intention to whop cancer into submission and I truly believe I've given myself the best start possible by radically overhauling my diet and by staying true to my motto, which is: Don't worry, be happy, feel good. The first thing I did when I was diagnosed was to turn vegan. #Quote by Larry Hagman
Submission quotes by James Lee Burke
#75. You do it a day at a time. You write as well as you can, you put it in the mail, you leave it under submission, you never leave it at home. #Quote by James Lee Burke
Submission quotes by Ted Dekker
#76. If my path is with learning and tears and submission, can you not follow that same path? #Quote by Ted Dekker
Submission quotes by Timothy Keller
#77. But the gospel, brought home to your heart by the Spirit, can make you happy enough to be humble, giving you an internal fullness that frees you to be generous with the other even when you are not getting the satisfaction you want out of the relationship. Without the help of the Spirit, without a continual refilling of your soul's tank with the glory and love of the Lord, such submission to the interests of the other is virtually impossible to accomplish for any length of time without becoming resentful. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Submission quotes by Tamara Hoffa
#78. Uh oh, maybe I'm hysterical. No, the look on his face had been so funny. Did he really think to kiss me into submission? That shit might work in romance novels, but not on me. If he wants to kiss me he'll have to earn that privilege again. #Quote by Tamara Hoffa
Submission quotes by Mary E. DeMuth
#79. Look how He's dusted me off and set me on my feet two hundred and fifty bazillion times. I'm fanatically in love with Him. So if this is true, I need to shed my need-for-everyone-to-like-me coat in favor of His robe of redemption, His mantle of humble submission. #Quote by Mary E. DeMuth
Submission quotes by A. Zavarelli
#80. She was the only antidote for the bleakness that lived inside of me. My goddess. My deity. I wasn't a believer in any religion, but I'd make an exception in this case. I'd get down on my knees and worship at her alter every day if it brought her back to me. #Quote by A. Zavarelli
Submission quotes by Klaus Kinski
#81. I've solved the mystery: You have to submit silently. Open up, let go. Let anything penetrate you, even the most painful things. Endure. Bear up. That's the magic key! The text comes by itself, and its meaning shakes the soul ... You mustn't let scar tissue form on your wounds; you have to keep ripping them open in order to turn your insides into a marvelous instrument that is capable of anything. All this has its price. #Quote by Klaus Kinski
Submission quotes by Michelle Hughes
#82. Those who don't understand the true meaning of a Master/slave relationship will never see that in submission a woman holds more power than the man she's given herself to. #Quote by Michelle Hughes
Submission quotes by Albert J. Nock
#83. According to my observations, mankind are among the most easily tamable and domesticable of all creatures in the animal world . They are readily reducible to submission, so readily conditionable (to coin a word) as to exhibit an almost incredibly enduring patience under restraint and oppression of the most flagrant character. So far are they from displaying any overweening love of freedom that they show a singular contentment with a condition of servitorship, often showing a curious canine pride in it, and again often simply unaware that they are existing in that condition. #Quote by Albert J. Nock
Submission quotes by Myles Munroe
#84. Submission is the willingness to give up our right to ourselves, to freely surrender our insistence on having our own way all the time. #Quote by Myles Munroe
Submission quotes by Joost A.M. Meerloo
#85. Freedom and respect for the individual are rooted in the Old Testament, which convinced man that he makes his own history, that he is responsible for his history. Such freedom implies that a man throws off his inertia, that he does not cling arbitrarily to tradition, that he strives knowledge and accepts moral responsibility. The fear of freedom is the fear of assuming responsibility.
Freedom can never be completely safeguarded by rules and laws. It is as much dependent on courage, integrity, and responsibility of each of us as it is on these qualities in those who govern. Every trait in us and our leaders which points to passive submission to mere power betrays democratic freedom. #Quote by Joost A.M. Meerloo
Submission quotes by Meredith Duran
#86. Your loyalty is not to me. Well do I know it, Nora ... You alone,' he whispered, 'among every creature in my knowledge, will never let go of what is yours, no matter how it pains you. And so I know I cannot ask for your glad cooperation ... I cannot demand your submission. I can only hold you, and pray I keep you safe, and spare you, by force if need be, from the consequences of what I admire in you most.'
To yield to his view of her was to accept that he tried to rule her from charitable and loving impulses. But she could not grant such motives to him without also accepting his rule. #Quote by Meredith Duran
Submission quotes by C.D. Reiss
#87. Her sexuality wasn't coy or cute. She wasn't saucy; she was feral. Her very presence on the earth stirred me. #Quote by C.D. Reiss
Submission quotes by George Orwell
#88. You would not make the act of submission which is the price of sanity. #Quote by George Orwell
Submission quotes by Mark Batterson
#89. I threw in the obligatory "if it be Your will" at the end. That tagline may sound spiritual, but it was less a submission to God's will and more a profession of doubt. If you aren't careful, the will of God can become a cop-out if things don't turn out the way you want. #Quote by Mark Batterson
Submission quotes by Carolyn Custis James
#90. Submission is not an occasional event. It is a lifestyle. It isn't a negative obligation on women, but the natural outworking of the gospel in every Christian's life. Submission is an attribute of Jesus, so it ought to show up in all of his followers. #Quote by Carolyn Custis James
Submission quotes by Carolyn Hax
#91. Apparently you have ample proof from experience that you're not going to stop world evil by debating your in-laws into submission, so it's okay to choose not to try. #Quote by Carolyn Hax
Submission quotes by Jean Baudrillard
#92. You no longer watch TV, it is TV that watches you (live)," or again: "You are no longer listening to Don't Panic, it is Don't Panic that is listening to you" - a switch from the panoptic mechanism of surveillance (Discipline and Punish [Surveiller et punir]) to a system of deterrence, in which the distinction between the passive and the active is abolished. There is no longer any imperative of submission to the model, or to the gaze "YOU are the model!" "YOU are the majority!" Such is the watershed of a hyperreal sociality, in which the real is confused with the model, as in the statistical operation, or with the medium. …Such is the last stage of the social relation, ours, which is no longer one of persuasion (the classical age of propaganda, of ideology, of publicity, etc.) but one of deterrence: "YOU are information, you are the social, you are the event, you are involved, you have the word, etc." An about-face through which it becomes impossible to locate one instance of the model, of power, of the gaze, of the medium itself, because you are always already on the other side. #Quote by Jean Baudrillard
Submission quotes by Billy Graham
#93. Confession and repentance might be described as the negative side of submission; this involves getting rid of everything which hinders God's control over our lives. Yielding to God might be described as the positive side ... placing ourselves totally into the hands of God. #Quote by Billy Graham
Submission quotes by Donald Miller
#94. You know you're with a Fearmonger when they overemphasize the concept of loyalty. Certainly loyalty is a virtue, but what a Fearmonger calls loyalty could better be described as complete and total submission. Fearmongers surround themselves only with people who will submit. In exchange for your submission, Fearmongers offer strength and protection, which, for many, is a security they are willing to trade their freedom for. Find a Fearmonger and you'll easily find a team of fearful, submissive personalities doing their will. #Quote by Donald Miller
Submission quotes by Talon P.S.
#95. Time seemed to stop; the world around them stilled. There was only her. His thumb caressed at her lips, the lips he wanted to kiss.
Katianna rolled her face in his palm - a caressing nuzzle and he stilled, his breath froze in his chest.
A response. A submissive one at that. His heart, stilled fractured by that single nuance, but his loins burst with a wave of warmth.
A response - it had been a response. Oh fuck he had to kiss her. His whole body was screaming for her now. #Quote by Talon P.S.
Submission quotes by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
#96. In the end Alicia had accepted that heavy piece as she done with so many of Leandro's offerings, in a tacit agreement of submission and pretense, where the unmentionable was sealed with a cold smile of politeness and a veil of silence, #Quote by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Submission quotes by Ravi Zacharias
#97. Marriage is the harmony of God synchronizing two wills with the will of the Father. #Quote by Ravi Zacharias
Submission quotes by Brent Weeks
#98. All women are whores," she said. "Whether they sell their bodies or their smiles and their charm or their childbearing years and submission to a man. The world makes a woman a whore, but a woman makes her terms. #Quote by Brent Weeks
Submission quotes by Ibram X. Kendi
#99. ON JUNE 25, 1890, W. E. B. Du Bois spoke at his Harvard graduation ceremony. He had now excelled, and had graduated from the most prestigious historically Black college and the most prestigious historically White college in the United States. He felt he was showing off the capability of his race. Du Bois's "brilliant and eloquent address," as judged by the reporters, was on "Jefferson Davis as Representative of Civilization." In Du Bois's rendering, Jefferson Davis, who had died the year before, represented the rugged individualism and domineering European civilization, in contrast to the rugged "submission" and selflessness of African civilization. The European "met civilization and crushed it," Du Bois concluded. "The Negro met civilization and was crushed by it." According to Du Bois's biographer, the Harvard graduate contrasted the civilized European "Strong Man" to the civilized African "Submissive Man."5 #Quote by Ibram X. Kendi
Submission quotes by George Frideric Handel
#100. It pleased the Almighty, to whose great will Holy Will I submit myself with Christian submission. #Quote by George Frideric Handel
Submission quotes by Riley Murphy
#101. His heart pounded faster. He'd been a patient man. Going above and beyond while she struggled to accept every aspect of her submission. It was a beautiful war where her body was the battlefield that gave way to her mind. A mind she'd set to be with him when she could be anything she wanted to be and yet, she'd chosen to be the woman who knelt at his side.
Grady Bergeron, my hero in Watch Me. #Quote by Riley Murphy
Submission quotes by Boris Brasol
#102. Wrangel pretended to combat the Bolsheviks, Bolshevism is Jewry. In order to retain the favor of the Jews holding the real power in England, France and the United States, Wrangel showed to the Jews signs of his submission to them. Thereafter the Russian masses abandoned Wrangel as a traitor or as a comedian. It is impossible simultaneously to be an auxiliary of the Jew and an enemy of the Bolsheviki who are Jews. Be it incoherence or treason, Wrangel deserved the same fate as Denikin and he got it. #Quote by Boris Brasol
Submission quotes by Maya Banks
#103. Men love a submissive woman, Damon said simply. Even when they say the don't. There's just something about a beautiful, soft woman looking to them to protect and take care of them that inspires a man to greatness. #Quote by Maya Banks
Submission quotes by Dee L.R. Graham
#104. All children are hostages of parents in the sense that they are totally dependent on their parents for survival. Children's survival is threatened by their underlying fear of parental abandonment as well as by actual and threatened physical violence. In approximately 50 percent of overt incestuous families, the father is physically abusive. Thus, children's submission to the father's overt sexual abuse is virtually guaranteed. Beyond the threat to survival that ensures submission, the incest itself is experienced as a threat to psychic survival. It is not uncommon for victims to dissociate during overt incestuous acts. (Dissociation is a psychic process, involving the breaking off of a group of mental activities that then function as if they belonged to a separate personality, which comes into play whenever events threaten to overwhelm the psyche of the victim.) Examination of long-term outcomes associated with incest (for instance, drug abuse, suicide, self-mutilation, borderline personality disorder, multiple personality disorder) reveal the severity of this threat to survival. #Quote by Dee L.R. Graham
Submission quotes by William Penn
#105. The way, like the cross, is spiritual: that is an inward submission of the soul to the will of God, as it is manifested by the light of Christ in the consciences of men, though it be contrary to their own inclinations. #Quote by William Penn
Submission quotes by Kevin Thoman
#106. How you respond to authority over you says a lot about what you claim to believe. When your standard of living is Christ-centered, you invariably live to honor others. #Quote by Kevin Thoman
Submission quotes by Algernon Sidney
#107. This submission is a restraint of liberty, but could be of no effect as to the good intended, unless it were general; nor general, unless it were natural. #Quote by Algernon Sidney
Submission quotes by Griffith John
#108. It is very much easier to work than to pray. Most of the missionaries are earnest workers. But are we all that we should be in the matter of prayer? Let us not suppose that just any sort of praying will do for China. We must all wrestle with God. 'I will not let Thee go unless Thou bless China.' It must come to this if the conversion of the Chinese is ever to be an accomplished fact. Such is my conviction. Let me remind you that the greatest importunity is not incompatible with the profoundest submission to the Divine will. #Quote by Griffith John
Submission quotes by Derek B. Miller
#109. You know the Norwegian police? They're a bunch of pussies. They don't carry guns, just like the English. But they stay after things for years and years, nagging and nagging. They're like herpes. You think you're rid of them, and then, when you're a little stressed out, boom! In the end they catch all the killers. They exhaust their prey into submission. #Quote by Derek B. Miller
Submission quotes by Anais Nin
#110. I do not want to be the leader. I refuse to be the leader. I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness. I want a man lying over me, always over me. His will, his pleasure, his desire, his life, his work, his sexuality the touchstone, the command, my pivot. I don't mind working, holding my ground intellectually, artistically; but as a woman, oh, God, as a woman I want to be dominated. I don't mind being told to stand on my own feet, not to cling, be all that I am capable of doing, but I am going to be pursued, fucked, possessed by the will of a male at his time, his bidding. #Quote by Anais Nin
Submission quotes by Simone Weil
#111. Oppression that is clearly inexorable and invincible does not give rise to revolt but to submission. #Quote by Simone Weil
Submission quotes by Philip Rieff
#112. Self-confidence is inseparable from submission to the creedal order, and through that order, to the supreme authority expressed in that order ... Deep individualism cannot exist except in relation to the highest authority. No inner discipline can operate without a charismatic institution, nor can such an institution survive without that supreme authority from a relation to whom self-confidence derives. Without an authority deeply installed, there is no foundation for individuality. Self-confidence thus expresses submission to supreme authority. #Quote by Philip Rieff
Submission quotes by James C. Wilhoit
#113. Too often we seem to have the idea that submission to Scripture means that we first come to see it as reasonable and then submit to it, but submission means, in part, a willingness to bend the knee in faith to things that are not fully resolved in our mind. #Quote by James C. Wilhoit
Submission quotes by Herbert Marcuse
#114. The range of socially permissible and desirable satisfaction is greatly enlarged, but through this satisfaction, the Pleasure Principle is reduced deprived of the claims which are irreconcilable with the established society. Pleasure, thus adjusted, generates submission. #Quote by Herbert Marcuse
Submission quotes by Emma Goldman
#115. Order derived through submission and maintained by terror is not much of a safe guaranty; yet that is the only 'order' that governments have ever maintained. #Quote by Emma Goldman
Submission quotes by Dean Smith
#116. If you do what we ask you to do, the victories will belong to you, and the losses to me. #Quote by Dean Smith
Submission quotes by E.L. James
#117. frustration at myself in the mirror. Damn my hair - it just won't behave, and damn Katherine Kavanagh for being ill and subjecting me to this ordeal. I should be studying for my final exams, which are next week, yet here I am trying to brush my hair into submission. I must not sleep with it wet. I must not sleep with it wet. Reciting this mantra several times, I attempt, once more, to bring it under control with the brush. I roll my eyes in exasperation and gaze at the pale, brown-haired girl with blue eyes too big for her face staring back at me, and give up. My only option is to restrain my wayward #Quote by E.L. James
Submission quotes by Catharine MacKinnon
#118. Women and men are divided by gender, made into the sexes as we know them, by the social requirements of heterosexuality, which institutionalizes male sexual dominance and female sexual submission. #Quote by Catharine MacKinnon
Submission quotes by Travis Luedke
#119. There's something sexy about a naked woman gritting her teeth in pain, even when it shouldn't be sexy. #Quote by Travis Luedke
Submission quotes by Gloria Steinem
#120. The problem is, for men and women, the idea that sexuality is about dominance and submission, when, in fact, cooperation is a lot more fun, to put it my way. So some of it, a lot of it, is just about empathy. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Submission quotes by Erich Fromm
#121. Can freedom become a burden, too heavy for man to bear, something he tries to escape from?..Is there not also, perhaps, besides an innate desire for freedom, an instinctive wish for submission? #Quote by Erich Fromm
Submission quotes by Alexander Herzen
#122. Liberalism, austere in political trifles, has learned ever more artfully to unite a constant protest against the government with a constant submission to it. #Quote by Alexander Herzen
Submission quotes by James Salter
#123. She formed her life day by day, taking as its materials the emptiness and panic as well as the rushes, like fever, of contentment. I am beyond fear of solitude, she thought, I am past it. The idea thrilled her. I am beyond it and I will not sink. This submission, this triumph made her stronger. It was as if finally, after having passed through inferior stages, her life had found a form worthy of it. #Quote by James Salter
Submission quotes by Felicity Brandon
#124. He places one of his long fingers over my lips, silencing me. I can smell my own musky arousal on his digit and I have the strongest urge to take it in my mouth and suck it as I did earlier during my audition. He says nothing but drills into me with those dazzling eyes. I have the strangest feeling that he is looking into my soul.
"Let us see where the wave takes us. I know I am going to enjoy the ride and I can guarantee our mutual satisfaction. Maybe we'll be washed to shore, I just don't know yet, but you can be certain of one thing ... "
I gaze up at him from his chest, breathing in the scent of his masculinity as I do.
"What's that, sir?" I ask, my voice betraying the curiosity I feel.
He looks down at me for a long, hard moment before he answers.
"I won't let you drown. #Quote by Felicity Brandon
Submission quotes by David McGee
#125. If you need all the answers to trust God, you are not really trusting God. #Quote by David McGee
Submission quotes by Rika
#126. I find few more satisfying exhibitions of power and control than deliberately creating desire - only to capriciously deny it... #Quote by Rika

#127. To submit one's self to one's gift is to submit oneself to education and self-development and to devote enough time to improve one's gift #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Submission quotes by John Stuart Mill
#128. We have had the morality of submission, and the morality of chivalry and generosity; the time is now come for the morality of justice. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Submission quotes by John Flavel
#129. Affliction is a pill, which, being wrapt up in patience and quiet submission, may be easily swallowed; but discontent chews the pill, and so embitters the soul. #Quote by John Flavel
Submission quotes by Guns N' Roses
#130. Ya live your life like it's a coma
So won't you tell me why we'd wanna
With all the reasons you give it's
It's kinda hard to believe
But who am I to tell you that I've
Seen any reason why you should stay
Matbe we'd be better off
Without you anyway
You got a one way ticket
On your last chance ride
Gotta one way ticket
To your suicide
Gotta one way ticket
An there's no way out alive
An all this crass communication
That has left you in the cold
Isn't much for consolation
When you feel so weak and old
But is home is where the heart is
Then there's stories to be told
No you don't need a doctor
No one else can heal your soul

Got your mind in submission
Got your life on the line
But nobody pulled the trigger
They just stepped aside
They be down by the water
While you watch 'em waving goodbye
They be callin' in the morning
They be hangin' on the phone
They be waiting for an answer
When you know nobody's home
And when the bell's stopped ringing
It was nobody's fault but your own
There were always ample warnings
There were always subtle signs
And you would have seen it comin'
But we gave you too much time
And when you said
That no one's listening
Why'd your best friend drop a dime
Sometimes we get so tired of waiting
For a way to spend our time
An "It's so easy" to be #Quote by Guns N' Roses
Submission quotes by Ernestine Rose
#131. Carry out the republican principle of universal suffrage, or strike it from your banners and substitute 'Freedom and Power to one half of society, and Submission and Slavery to the other.' #Quote by Ernestine Rose
Submission quotes by John Keats
#132. In passing however I must say of one thing that has pressed upon me lately and encreased my Humility and capability of submission and that is this truth - Men of Genius are great as certain ethereal Chemicals operating on the Mass of neutral intellect - but they have not any individuality, any determined Character - I would call the top and head of those who have a proper self Men of Power. #Quote by John Keats
Submission quotes by Courtney Milan
#133. It would have been easy to shut her eyes and let him kiss her. To have the choice taken from her in one heated, passive moment, with nothing for her to do but comply. But he was asking for more than her artless submission. Not deference, not docility, but ... defiance.
'I want you to choose me,' he said, 'well and truly choose me of your own accord. I don't want you to wait at the crossroads in the hopes that I will force the choice upon you. #Quote by Courtney Milan
Submission quotes by A. Zavarelli
#134. Was it cruel if someone asked for it? Begged for it, even? She always begged. Even now, I could hear her whimpering for me. Christ, those noises she made. A one-way ticket to heaven. #Quote by A. Zavarelli
Submission quotes by Charles Dickens
#135. The air of completeness and superiority with which she walked at my side, and the air of youthfulness and submission with which I walked at hers, made a contrast that I strongly felt. It would have rankled in me more than it did, if I had not regarded myself as eliciting it by being so set apart for her and assigned to her. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Submission quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#136. Submission to God is praying with your knees bow. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Submission quotes by A.J. Darkholme
#137. Sometimes to submit is to know you have a life worth living for a higher purpose, worth seeing through. #Quote by A.J. Darkholme
Submission quotes by Elizabeth Dole
#138. It is not what I do that matters, but what a sovereign God chooses to do through me. God does not want worldly successes, He wants me. He wants my heart in submission to Him. Life is not just a few years to spend on self indulgence and career advancement. It is a privilege, a responsibility, a stewardship to be lived according to a much higher calling, God's calling. This alone gives true meaning to life. #Quote by Elizabeth Dole
Submission quotes by Wallace Stegner
#139. It would be easy to call it quits. Occasionally I have these moments, not often. There is nothing to do but sit still until they pass. Tantrums and passions I don't need, endurance is what I need. I have found that it is even possible to take a certain pleasure out of submission to necessity. That have I borne, this can I bear also. #Quote by Wallace Stegner
Submission quotes by Pauline Reage
#140. Keep me rather in this cage, and feed me sparingly, if you dare. Anything that brings me closer to illness and the edge of death makes me more faithful. It is only when you make me suffer that I feel safe and secure. You should never have agreed to be a god for me if you were afraid to assume the duties of a god, and we know that they are not as tender as all that. You have already seen me cry. Now you must learn to relish my tears. #Quote by Pauline Reage
Submission quotes by Relson Gracie
#141. The only guys I like watching these days are Roger Gracie, Marcelo Garcia, Kron and a few others. Those guys finish and go for submissions. They don't hold the sleeves and stall for ten minutes. #Quote by Relson Gracie
Submission quotes by Gloria Steinem
#142. I always say to audiences of men: "Cooperation beats submission. Trust me." #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Submission quotes by Lyoto Machida
#143. He's a complete fighter. He has some flaws, of course, but he has a good stand up game, good takedowns and a good ground game. He's a complete fighter, and that makes him dangerous. He hits hard, but I believe I can stop him. I believe I can finish this fight earlier. I'm not underestimating him, but I've learned a lot in my past fights. I have learned a lot in my fight against (Chris) Weidman, so it's likely that I will finish this fight before the fifth round. Whatever it takes. I'm training hard on my grappling skills and my striking, so I want to finish him with a knockout or a submission. #Quote by Lyoto Machida
Submission quotes by Aleister Crowley
#144. To use legal or financial constraint to compel either abstention or submission, is entirely horrible, unnatural and absurd. #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Submission quotes by D.L. Hess

Submission quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#146. The poets and writers are trying to understand the reality of woman, but up to this day they have not understand the hidden secret of her heart because they look upon her from behind the sexual veil and see nothing but the externals: they look upon her from magnifying glass of hatefulness and find nothing except weakness and submission. #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Submission quotes by Robert B. Taylor

Submission quotes by C.D. Reiss
#150. Being under him, trapped, objectified, I lost all fear. With Jonathan, I felt safe. I felt a loss of control so complete, a surrender so honest that it became a luxurious indulgence. #Quote by C.D. Reiss
Submission quotes by Alan Ryan
#151. The revolt in Asia Minor was snugged out in 494, and the Athenians realized that they had acquired a dangerous enemy. Darius I's first attempt at invasion in 492 was abortive: a huge storm wrecked his fleet. In 491 the Persians demanded 'earth and water'
signs of submission
from the Aegean islands and mainland cities. Many submitted. Athens and Sparta not only stood firm but murdered the Persian ambassadors. The Athenians put them on trial and killed both the ambassadors and their translator for offenses against the Greek language; the Spartans simply thew them down a well. #Quote by Alan Ryan
Submission quotes by Ben Shapiro
#152. And the leftist bullies use that nonconstitutional phrase as a baton with which to club their opponents into submission. Jefferson's "wall of separation between Church & State," a phrase from his 1802 letter to the Danbury Baptists, was meant not to prevent people from expressing religion in the public square but to prevent government from infringing on religious freedom. #Quote by Ben Shapiro
Submission quotes by Oswald Chambers
#153. As His disciples, our lives must be a holy example of the reality of our message. Even the natural heart of the unsaved will serve if called upon to do so, but it takes a heart broken by conviction of sin, baptized by the Holy Spirit, and crushed into submission to God's purpose to make a person's life a holy example of God's message. There is a difference #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Submission quotes by Bat Maxwell
#154. Erotic pleasures draw strength from our weakest and most vulnerable moments… #Quote by Bat Maxwell

Submission quotes by Marie Lu
#159. Fear motivates, more than love or ambition or joy. Fear is more powerful than anything else in the world. I have spent so long yearning for things - for love, for acceptance - that I do not really need. I need nothing except the submission that comes with fear. I do not know why it took me so long to learn this. #Quote by Marie Lu
Submission quotes by Erich Fromm
#160. Among the many forms of alienation, the most frequent one is alienation in language. If I express a feeling with a word, let us say, if I say "I love you," the word is meant to be an indication of the reality which exists within myself, the power of my loving. The word "love" is meant to be a symbol of the fact love, but as soon as it is spoken it tends to assume a life of its own, it becomes a reality. I am under the illusion that the saying of the word is the equivalent of the experience, and soon I say the word and feel nothing, except the thought of love which the word expresses. The alienation of language shows the whole complexity of alienation. Language is one of the most precious human achievements; to avoid alienation by not speaking would be foolish -- yet one must be always aware of the danger of the spoken word, that it threatens to substitute itself for the living experience. The same holds true for all other achievements of man; ideas, art, any kind of man-made objects. They are man's creations; they are valuable aids for life, yet each one of them is also a trap, a temptation to confuse life with things, experience with artifacts, feeling with surrender and submission. #Quote by Erich Fromm
Submission quotes by E.L. James
#161. Nothing I've done today, including running - twice - and a quick circuit in the gym, has dispelled the anxiety I've wrestled with all day. That power is in the hands of Anastasia Steele. I want her submission. #Quote by E.L. James
Submission quotes by Cal Newport
#162. Once you've identified these goals, list for each the two or three most important activities that help you satisfy the goal. These activities should be specific enough to allow you to clearly picture doing them. On the other hand, they should be general enough that they're not tied to a onetime outcome. For example, "do better research" is too general (what does it look like to be "doing better research"?), while "finish paper on broadcast lower bounds in time for upcoming conference submission" is too specific (it's a onetime outcome). A good activity in this context would be something like: "regularly read and understand the cutting-edge results in my field. #Quote by Cal Newport
Submission quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#163. I have seen in Japan the voluntary submission of the whole people to the trimming of their minds and clipping of their freedom by their government, which through various educational agencies regulates their thoughts, manufactures their feelings, becomes suspiciously watchful when they show signs of inclining toward the spiritual, leading them through a narrow path not toward what is true but what is necessary for the complete welding of them into one uniform mass according to its own recipe. The people accept this all-pervading mental slavery with cheerfulness and pride because of their nervous desire to turn themselves into a machine of power, called the Nation, and emulate other machines in their collective worldliness. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Submission quotes by Adrienne Rich
#164. The most pernicious message relayed by pornography is that women are natural sexual prey to men and love it; that sexuality and violence are congruent; and that for women sex is essentially masochistic, humiliation pleasurable, physical abuse erotic. But along with this message comes another, not always recognized: that enforced submission and the use of cruelty, if played out in heterosexual pairing, is sexually "normal," while sensuality between women, including erotic mutuality and respect, is "queer," "sick," and either pornographic in itself or not very exciting compared with the sexuality of whips and bondage. Pornography does not simply create a climate in which sex
and violence are interchangeable; it widens the range of behavior considered
acceptable from men in heterosexual intercourse-behavior which reiteratively
strips women of their autonomy, dignity, and sexual potential, including the potential of loving and being loved by women in mutuality and integrity. #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Submission quotes by Anais Nin
#165. I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness. #Quote by Anais Nin
Submission quotes by Rick Warren
#166. God is not a cruel slave driver or a bully who uses brute force to coerce us into submission. He doesn't try to break our will, but woos us to himself so that we might offer ourselves freely to him. God is a lover and a liberator, and surrendering to him brings freedom, not bondage. When we completely surrender ourselves to Jesus, we discover that he is not a tyrant, but a savior; not a boss, but a brother; not a dictator, but a friend. #Quote by Rick Warren

#168. He quickened his stride: 'The truth is in the paradox, Miss Drake. Anything not done in submission to God, anything not done to the glory of God, is doomed to failure, frailty, and futility. This is the unholy trinity we humans fear most. And we should, for we entertain it all the time at the pain and expense of not knowing the real one. #Quote by Carolyn Weber
Submission quotes by Jeffrey Tayler
#169. A purpose derived from a false premise – that a deity has ordained submission to his will – cannot merit respect. The pursuit of Enlightenment-era goals - solving our world's problems through rational discourse, rather than through religion and tradition – provides ample grounds for a purposive existence. It is not for nothing that the Enlightenment, when atheism truly began to take hold, was also known as the Age of Reason. #Quote by Jeffrey Tayler
Submission quotes by Georg Brandes
#170. What [Nietzsche] calls slave morality is to him purely spite-morality; and this spite-morality gave new names to all ideals. Thus impotence, which offers no reprisal, became goodness; craven baseness became humility; submission to him who was feared became obedience; inability to assert one's self became reluctance to assert one's self, became forgiveness, love of one's enemies. Misery became a distinction #Quote by Georg Brandes
Submission quotes by Isolde Martyn
#171. And there are no words left, try as men may, to describe that little death, that incandescent instant when, transacted with mutual love, there is no difference between sweet submission and exquisite conquest. #Quote by Isolde Martyn
Submission quotes by Gene Edwards
#172. Rules were invented by elders so they could get to bed early. Men who speak endlessly on authority only prove they have none. And kings who make speeches about submission only betray twin fears in their hearts: they are not certain they are really true leaders, sent of God. And they live in mortal fear of a rebellion...
No... authority from God is not afraid of challenges, makes no defense, and cares not one whit if it must be dethroned. #Quote by Gene Edwards
Submission quotes by Sandra M. Gilbert
#173. A life of feminine submission, of 'contemplative purity,' is a life of silence, a life that has no pen and no story, while a life of female rebellion, of 'significant action,' is a life that must be silenced, a life whose monstrous pen tells a terrible story. #Quote by Sandra M. Gilbert
Submission quotes by Toussaint Louverture
#174. I shall not remind you, Citizen-Directors, of all I have done for the triumph of liberty, the prosperity of St. Domingo, the glory of the French Republic; nor will I protest to you my attachment to our mother country, to my duties; my respect to the constitution, to the laws of the Republic, and my submission to the government. #Quote by Toussaint Louverture

Submission quotes by Corneliu Zelea Codreanu
#176. Dear comrade in arms,
after 15 years of battles, persecutions and sacrifices,
Romania's youth must know
that the hour of the Legionaire victory isn't far.

All of our enemies attempts will be crushed.
All plans of tempting us,
All attempts at buying our souls,
All attempts of seperating us,
and all treasons will fall to the ground.

Look at them, at your tyrants,
straight in their eyes.

Endure with submission all blows,
endure all pains,
whatever they may be,
because our sacrifices will be the iron foundation
made from broken bodies
and from tortured souls,
of our Victory.

Those, among us, who will fall
will have names and tombs of heroes,
and those who will kill us
will bear the names of traitors
and will be cursed from generation to generation.

From the depths
the Legionnaire rises victorious with his rock-like soul.

Those who think they can defeat him...
as well as those who think they can buy him...
will soon, but too late...
Come to the conclusion...
that they were wrong. #Quote by Corneliu Zelea Codreanu
Submission quotes by John Angell James
#177. To bear adversity with meek submission to the will of God; to endure chastisement with all long-suffering and joyfulness; to appear cheerful amid surrounding gloom, hopeful amidst desponding circumstances, happy in God when there is nothing else to make us happy; he who does this has indeed made great advances in the divine life. #Quote by John Angell James
Submission quotes by Henry James
#178. But the blots, Turkey," intimated I. "True,-but, with submission, sir, behold these hairs! I am getting old. Surely, sir, a blot or two of a warm afternoon is not to be severely urged against gray hairs. Old age-even if it blot the page-is honorable. With submission, sir, we both are getting old. #Quote by Henry James
Submission quotes by Nikki Sex
#179. Pain is not the most important tool in Dominance and submission, yet it is a most worthy tool. Pain breaks down barriers and defences. And for intensifying the orgasm? There are few superior devices a Dom has to achieve such, other than varying degrees of pain. #Quote by Nikki Sex
Submission quotes by Andy Stanley
#180. Divine direction begins with unconditional submission. #Quote by Andy Stanley
Submission quotes by Ken Hutcherson
#181. If you remove Al Sharpton's blackness, he disappears. He's transparent. There's nothing there because he bases his whole life on his blackness. Me, I'm a black man; but my blackness has submission to my Christianity. #Quote by Ken Hutcherson
Submission quotes by A. Zavarelli
#182. I'd single-handedly go to war and burn their whole organization to the ground before I ever let them harm what was mine. And there were no two ways about it- Brighton would always be mine. #Quote by A. Zavarelli
Submission quotes by Alexandra Ivy
#183. What was the point in satin and lace if it didn't make a man struggle to speak? #Quote by Alexandra Ivy
Submission quotes by David Hume
#184. Nothing appears more surprizing to those, who consider human affairs with a philosophical eye, than the easiness with which the many are governed by the few; and the implicit submission, with which men resign their own sentiments and passions to those of their rulers. #Quote by David Hume
Submission quotes by Annabel Joseph
#185. Do you know about it, Kelsey?" he asked after a while. "Dominance and submission? This thing we're doing? I don't know so good how to explain it. Only how to do it. #Quote by Annabel Joseph
Submission quotes by Karl Jaspers
#186. But each one of us is guilty insofar as he remained inactive. The guilt of passivity is different. Impotence excuses; no moral law demands a spectacular death. Plato already deemed it a matter of course to go into hiding in desperate times of calamity, and to survive. But passivity knows itself morally guilty of every failure, every neglect to act whenever possible, to shield the imperiled, to relieve wrong, to countervail. Impotent submission always left a margin of activity which, though not without risk, could still be cautiously effective. Its anxious omission weighs upon the individual as moral guilt. Blindness for the misfortune of others, lack of imagination of the heart, inner differences toward the witnessed evil
that is moral guilt. #Quote by Karl Jaspers
Submission quotes by Pat Robertson
#187. They have kept us in submission because they have talked about separation of church and state. There is no such thing in the Constitution. It's a lie of the left, and we're not going to take it anymore. #Quote by Pat Robertson
Submission quotes by Tea Obreht
#188. The distance of the fighting created the illusion of normalcy, but the new rules resulted in an attitude shift that did not suit the Administration's plans. They were going for structure, control, for panic that produced submission - what #Quote by Tea Obreht
Submission quotes by Angela Carter
#189. If women allow themselves to be consoled for their culturally determined lack of access to the modes of intellectual debate by the invocation of hypothetical great goddesses, they are simply flattering themselves into submission (a technique often used on them by men). All the mythic versions of women, from the myth of the redeeming purity of the virgin to that of the healing, reconciliatory mother, are consolatory nonsenses; and consolatory nonsense seems to me a fair definition of myth, anyway. Mother goddesses are just as silly a notion as father gods. If a revival of the myths gives women emotional satisfaction, it does so at the price of obscuring the real conditions of life. This is why they were invented in the first place. #Quote by Angela Carter
Submission quotes by Habeeb Akande
#190. The hardest and greatest thing a human being can do is submit to his Creator. #Quote by Habeeb Akande
Submission quotes by Robert Boswell
#191. The rain began to fall harder, and it distracted him, but he tried to pull himself back because he felt on the verge of understanding something large and important. It seemed to him that this moment - the light and wind, the sweep of fields, the falling rain, the lowing cows, Leah's form as it twisted to one side and then another - captured a sort of life that he longed for, a life of order and harsh beauty, and although this was his farm and his vision, it did not seem to be his life. It seemed instead to be the thing for which he must daily give up his life, an act of submission to something he could not name and only rarely, in moments such as these, have a sense of. Life during these moments seemed neither lost nor ruined but a power to be shared, as the grass shares its power with the living things that devour it. #Quote by Robert Boswell
Submission quotes by Henri Frederic Amiel
#192. Life is but a daily oscillation between revolt and submission. #Quote by Henri Frederic Amiel
Submission quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#193. No one can say yes to God's ways who has said no to his promises and commandments. Acceptance of the will of God comes in the daily submission under his Word. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Submission quotes by Astrid Knowles
#194. Who am I to deny my Master pleasure, simply because it is not at the hands of myself? He is free to do as he will, because of the life that he has given me. I am thankful for him, for the fact that out of all of us, I am the one that he chooses to keep and care for as his own. #Quote by Astrid Knowles
Submission quotes by Robert Anton Wilson
#195. Submission is identified not with cowardliness, but with virtue, rebellion not with heroism, but with evil.

To the Roman slave owners, Spartacus was not the hero and obedient slaves were not cowards. Spartacus was not a hero, and obedient slaves were virtuous. The obedient slaves believed this also. The obedient always think about themselves as virtuous, rather than cowardly.

If authority implies submission, liberation implies equality. Authority exists when one man obeys another, and liberty exists when one man do not obey other men.

Thus, to say that authority exists is to say that class and cast exist, that submission and inequality exist. To say that the liberty exists is to say that classlessness exists, to say that brotherhood and equality exist.

Authority, by dividing men into classes, creates dichotomy, disruption, hostility, fear, disunion. Liberty, by placing men to equal footing, creates association, amalgamation, union, security. #Quote by Robert Anton Wilson
Submission quotes by Jokha Alharthi
#196. She received the news of his death in silent submission. She arranged the funeral rites as well as she could in her modest circumstances, for his uncle refused to offer the slightest help or to mourn. She died, though no one knew she was dead. Every day and every night, for ten years, she died a little more. She breathed and ate and drank but she was dead. She spoke to people and walked among them, dead. Only much later did her body give up its already-deceased spirit, its dead spirit, no longer forced to pretend, to play at being alive. #Quote by Jokha Alharthi
Submission quotes by Crow Gray
#197. During their conversations, the subject of Domination and submission had came up a few times, and he always seemed to know more about the subject than an average person. She suspected he had a dominant side she had yet to fully experience, and decided it may be enjoyable for both of them if she let him know she was willing to embrace this side of him. #Quote by Crow Gray
Submission quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#198. An elder was one who took your soul, your will, into his soul and his will. When you choose an elder, you renounce your own will and yield it to him in complete submission, complete self-abnegation just like some Muslims who conseiders their sheikh as holy, some christians worship their (elder) #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Submission quotes by Gloria Steinem
#199. The first problem for all of us, men and women, is not to learn but to unlearn. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Submission quotes by Alfred North Whitehead
#200. [Beware of] the fallacy of misplaced concreteness [mistaking an abstraction for concrete reality, for actuality]

In the inescapable flux, there is something that abides; in the overwhelming permanence, there is an element that escapes into flux. Permanence can be snatched only out of flux; and the passing moment can find its adequate intensity only by its submission to permanence.

Error is the price we pay for progress.

In the real world it is more important that a proposition be interesting than that it be true. The importance of truth is that it adds to interest.

Creativity is the universal of universals characterizing ultimate matter of fact. It is that ultimate principle by which the many, which are the universe disjunctively, become the one actual occasion, which is the universe conjunctively. It lies in the nature of things that the many enter into complex unity.

The aim of science is to seek the simplest explanations of complex facts. We are apt to fall into the error of thinking that the facts are simple because simplicity is the goal of our quest. The guiding motto in the life of every natural philosopher should be, "Seek simplicity and distrust it."

It requires a very unusual mind to undertake the analysis of the obvious.

[From various of Whitehead's books, not only PR] #Quote by Alfred North Whitehead
