Surrender quotes by Ben Carson
#1. If I speak in the tongues of men and of angles, but am note nice, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but am not nice, I am nothing. If I give all I posses to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but am not nice, I gain nothing. #Quote by Ben Carson
Surrender quotes by Michael Meade
#2. Something ancient in us bends us toward the origins of the whole thing. We either drown in the splits and confusions of our lives, or we surrender to something greater than ourselves. The water of our deepest troubles is also the water of our own solution. In surrender, we descend down to the bottom of it and back to the beginning of it; down into what is divided in order to get back to the wholeness before the split. Healing, health, wealth, wholeness: all hail from the same roots. To heal is to make whole again; wholeness is what all healing seeks and what alone can truly unify our spirit. #Quote by Michael Meade
Surrender quotes by Bing Crosby
#3. My golf is woeful but I will never surrender. #Quote by Bing Crosby
Surrender quotes by Victoria Schwab
#4. Perhaps it is in our best interest to... to surrender rather than waste words. #Quote by Victoria Schwab
Surrender quotes by Jesse Jackson
#5. We must never surrender. America will get better and better. Keep hope alive. Keep hope alive. #Quote by Jesse Jackson
Surrender quotes by Tim Wu
#6. For all our secular rationalism and technological advances, potential for surrender to the charms of magical thinking remains embedded in the human psyche, awaiting only the advertiser to awaken it. #Quote by Tim Wu
Surrender quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#7. Precisely this one, which I had intended to be published anonymously so that it could never build any reputation on the part of the author, did become a success ... Don't aim at success - the more you aim and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued, it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side-effect of one's dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one's surrender to a person other than oneself. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Surrender quotes by Richard Paul Evans
#8. Often times, the greatest peace comes of surrender. #Quote by Richard Paul Evans
Surrender quotes by Francesca Marciano
#9. Maybe that's what happens with age, I thought. All your life you force yourself to forget people who have hurt you, but as you get older and weaker their memory surfaces again, like a bubble in the water. You have to surrender, because you feel to tired to fight it and push it down again. And maybe, unexpectedly, you find out that instead, of revamping your anger, those memories produce an unexpected sweetness. #Quote by Francesca Marciano
Surrender quotes by Goldie Hawn
#10. Letting go of someone we love is the hardest thing we will ever do. Some people never surrender to love for the fear of being hurt. But to not have loved, to not have felt the immense joy it brings, would have been a far worse kind of death. #Quote by Goldie Hawn
Surrender quotes by Human Angels
#11. The total acceptance of ourselves in the present moment without judging things that happen, letting things happen as they happen, is the final act that frees us from the ego: this is the unconditional surrender of the ego to the Higher Self. #Quote by Human Angels
Surrender quotes by A.E. Samaan
#12. The right to self defense is inalienable from the right to life. Weaken one and the other is devalued. Surrender your arms today and forfeit your life tomorrow. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Surrender quotes by Andre Aciman
#13. Now, in the silence of the moment, I stared back, not to defy him, or to show I wasn't shy any longer, but to surrender, to tell him this is who I am, this is who you are, this is what I want, there is nothing but truth between us now, and where there's truth there are no barriers, no shifty glances, and if nothing comes of this, let it never be said that either of us was unaware of what might happen. #Quote by Andre Aciman
Surrender quotes by Debbie Ford
#14. The Toltec tradition tells us that we surrender a portion of our life force when we dwell on any unhealed wounding event from our past. The unprocessed emotions surrounding these events burden us and weigh heavily on our hearts. They must be dealt with if we want access to all of our vitality. Ultimately, what we will find is that forgiveness is the key to reclaiming all the life force locked in past hurt. #Quote by Debbie Ford
Surrender quotes by Rumi
#15. The Reed Flute's Song

Listen to the story told by the reed,
of being separated.

"Since I was cut from the reedbed,
I have made this crying sound.

Anyone apart from someone he loves
understands what I say.

Anyone pulled from a source
longs to go back.

At any gathering I am there,
mingling in the laughing and grieving,

a friend to each, but few
will hear the secrets hidden

within the notes. No ears for that.
Body flowing out of spirit,

spirit up from body: no concealing
that mixing. But it's not given us

to see the soul. The reed flute
is fire, not wind. Be that empty."

Hear the love fire tangled
in the reed notes, as bewilderment

melts into wine. The reed is a friend
to all who want the fabric torn

and drawn away. The reed is hurt
and salve combining. Intimacy

and longing for intimacy, one
song. A disastrous surrender

and a fine love, together. The one
who secretly hears this is senseless.

A tongue has one customer, the ear.
A sugarcane flute has such effect

because it was able to make sugar
in the reedbed. The sound it makes

is for everyone. Days full of wanting,
let them go by without worrying

that they do. Stay where you are
inside such a pure, hollow note.

Every thirst gets satis #Quote by Rumi
Surrender quotes by Marcus Sakey
#16. Freedom is not a couch. It's not a television, or a car, or a house. It's not an item you can possess. You cannot put freedom on layaway; you cannot refinance freedom. Freedom is something you need to fight for, not once, but every single day. The nature of freedom is that it is fluid; like water in a leaking bucket, the tendency is for it to drain away. Left untended, the holes through which freedom escapes widen. When politicians restrict our rights in order to "protect us," freedom is lost. When the military refuses to disclose basic facts, freedom is lost. Worst of all, when fear becomes a part of our lives, we willingly surrender freedom for a promise of safety, as if freedom weren't the very basis of safety. #Quote by Marcus Sakey
Surrender quotes by Tom Robbins
#17. If every time we choose a turd, society, at a great expense, simply allows us to redeem it for a pepperoni, then not only will we never learn to make smart choices, we will also surrender the freedom to choose, because a choice without consequences is no choice at all. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Surrender quotes by Derek Rydall
#18. The interesting (and sometimes scary) thing about living a purposeful life is you begin to realize that, in a very real way, your life is not your own. You're not here to just get all the good stuff for yourself - and maybe your loved ones - so you can live a happy, pleasure-filled existence. You are part of a larger organism, a larger system, and all the good that you receive, all the talent you possess, everything that you have, is not for your benefit only - but for the benefit of the whole system. And the more you surrender to this, the more the universe will pour its bounty through you so you can be a bigger giver. #Quote by Derek Rydall
Surrender quotes by Steve Uppal
#19. The first step is always one of surrender. Not my will but your will be done. I believe the fastest way to get God's attention and become fruitful in the Kingdom is to surrender yourself to him. #Quote by Steve Uppal
Surrender quotes by David Sax
#20. the elevated anxiety he's observed in this generation of campers is directly related to the constant hovering of their parents, who use digital technology to keep tabs on their children around the clock. They cannot surrender their authority. Many of the phones that Birenbaum has seized from campers over the past few summers were sent on the insistence of parents, who wanted to remain in touch. #Quote by David Sax
Surrender quotes by Eric Ludy
#21. Make me little in mind, soft in heart, trusting in soul. #Quote by Eric Ludy
Surrender quotes by Kenny Werner
#22. Intellect has to surrender to instinct when it is time to play. #Quote by Kenny Werner
Surrender quotes by Danielle Boonstra
#23. A surrendered day is a good day. #Quote by Danielle Boonstra
Surrender quotes by Lee Sandlin
#24. War ends at the moment when peace permanently wins out. Not when the articles of surrender are signed or the last shot is fired, but when the last shout of a sidewalk battle fades, when the next generation starts to wonder whether the whole thing ever really happened. World War II ended as war always ends -- by trailing off into nothingness and doubt. Its final monument has never been seen by mortal eyes. It's a phantom image at the edge of a rumor: an unmarked grave in the depths of the South American jungle where a weird and decrepit old man, half forgotten by the world, at last entered the lists of oblivion. #Quote by Lee Sandlin
Surrender quotes by Ethan Canin
#25. An infant, in his first sleepiness, must let go of the world; a man must learn to die. What comes between are the grains of sand. Ambition. Loss. Envy. Desire. Hatred. Love. Tenderness. Joy. Shame. Loneliness. Ecstasy. Ache. Surrender. #Quote by Ethan Canin
Surrender quotes by E.W. Jackson
#26. When one hears the word meditation, it conjures an image of Maharishi Yoga talking about finding a mantra and striving for nirvana. The purpose of such meditation is to empty oneself. [Satan] is happy to invade the empty vacuum of your soul and possess it. That is why people serve Satan without ever knowing it or deciding to, but no one can be a child of God without making a decision to surrender to him. Beware of systems of spirituality which tell you to empty yourself. You will end up filled with something you probably do not want, #Quote by E.W. Jackson
Surrender quotes by Jeffrey Lang
#27. You cannot simply read the Quran,not if you take it seriously.You either have surrendered to it already or you fight it.
It attacks tenaciously,directly,personally; it debates,criticizes,shames and challenges.
From the outset it draws the line of battle, and I was on other side. #Quote by Jeffrey Lang
Surrender quotes by Nalini Singh
#28. Reaching up, he began using the exercise bar to do chin-ups. The repetitive act helped focus his mind as it multitasked. One thing was certain - he refused to never again experience the intimacy of being with Brenna. It wasn't the sex, though that had been the most amazing experience of his life. It was the way he'd made her laugh, made her smile, made her complain and then cuddle. All because she'd felt safe, reassured by the strength of their emotional connection.
He would not steal that feeling from her. And he most definitely was not going to surrender her to another male who could give her what she needed. The idea made him want to break something. #Quote by Nalini Singh
Surrender quotes by Oswald Chambers
#29. In our abandonment we give ourselves over to God just as God gave Himself for us, without any calculations. The consequences of abandonment never enter into our outlook because our life is taken up in Him. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Surrender quotes by Michele Bardsley
#30. Patrick: Is fear rith maith nά drochseasamh.
Jessica:And that means what?
Patrick: A good run is better than a bad stand.
Jessica: Oh. And that means what?
Patrick: It means, Jessica, that life is about choices. Sometimes you fight, sometimes you flee, but you never surrender. #Quote by Michele Bardsley
Surrender quotes by Rajneesh
#31. Listening is totally different from hearing. Hearing, anybody who is not deaf can do. Listening is a rare art, one of the last arts. Listening means not only hearing with the ears but hearing from the heart, in utter silence, in absolute peace, with no resistance. One has to be vulnerable to listen, and one has to be in deep love to listen. One has to be in utter surrender to listen. #Quote by Rajneesh
Surrender quotes by Buddhadasa
#32. Do work of all kinds with a mind that is void and to the voidness surrender all of the fruits. #Quote by Buddhadasa
Surrender quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#33. As soon as we surrender the principle that the state should not interfere in any questions touching on the individuals mode of life, we end by regulating and restricting the latter down to the smallest details. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Surrender quotes by Edward O. Wilson
#34. To give in completely to the instinctual urgings born from individual selection would be to dissolve society. At the opposite extreme, to surrender to the urgings from group selection would turn us into angelic robots - the outsized equivalents of ants. #Quote by Edward O. Wilson
Surrender quotes by Tim McGraw
#35. Beyond the picket fences and the oil wells, the happy endings, and the fairy tales, is the reality of shattered lives and broken dreams. We carry on. #Quote by Tim McGraw
Surrender quotes by Confucius
#36. No matter how busy you make think you are you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance #Quote by Confucius
Surrender quotes by Bryant McGill
#37. Evolve your understanding of success from the outer realm of control, materialism, and ego, to the inner realm of surrender, spirituality, and compassion. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Surrender quotes by Kristen Bell
#38. I refused to worry about something I could not change, and I still refuse. Look, I'm like any other woman. All this evolved b.s. that I'm telling you is my mantra. It's not something I practice naturally. I had to surrender to not worrying about the way I looked, how much I weighed, because that's just part of the journey of having a baby. I am not a woman whose self-worth comes from her dress size. #Quote by Kristen Bell
Surrender quotes by Ayn Rand
#39. You'll come back, because yours is an error of knowledge, not a moral failure, not an act of surrender to evil, but only the last act of being victim to your own virtue. We'll wait for you and when you come back, you will have discovered that there need never be any conflict among your desires, nor so tragic a clash of values as the one you've borne so well. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Surrender quotes by Harry Blamires
#40. A resistance stirs within us. Do we *want* our theology paraded thus? As natural men, no. We do not want it any more than we want the discipling of the Christian moral law, repentance, the painful call of self-surrender. but if it is the intellectual expression of that faith by which we live, how can our minds work Christianly without it? Wherever men think and talk, the banner will have to be raised. #Quote by Harry Blamires
Surrender quotes by Mooji
#41. Surrender is not a weakness it is strength.It takes tremendous strength to surrender life to the supreme - to the cosmic unfolding. #Quote by Mooji
Surrender quotes by Greg Egan
#42. Paul closed his eyes and turned his face to the sun. In spite of everything, it was hard not to take solace from the warmth flooding onto his skin. He stretched the muscles in his arms, his shoulders, his back -- and it felt like he was reaching out from the "self" in his virtual skull to all his mathematical flesh, imprinting the nebulous data with meaning; binding it all together, staking some kind of claim. He felt the stirrings of an erection. Existence was beginning to seduce him. He let himself surrender for a moment to a visceral sense of identity which drowned out all his pale mental images of optical processors, all his abstract reflections on the software's approximations and short-cuts. This body didn't want to evaporate. This body didn't want to bale out. It didn't much care that there was another -- "more real" -- version of itself elsewhere. It wanted to retain its wholeness. It wanted to endure. #Quote by Greg Egan
Surrender quotes by Joy Marino
#43. Defenseless, destined to surrender... he danced to the rhythm of her hips. #Quote by Joy Marino
Surrender quotes by Riley Murphy
#44. Jo Nehr, in Required Surrender, There is no weakness in being one man's everything. #Quote by Riley Murphy
Surrender quotes by Alain Badiou
#45. I am surprised to see that today everything that does not amount to surrender pure and simple to generalized capitalism, let us call it thus, is considered to be archaic or old-fashioned, as though in a way there existed no other definition of what it means to be modern than, quite simply, to be at all times caught in the dominant forms of the moment. #Quote by Alain Badiou
Surrender quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#46. When you pray, pray so that you may know Him. When you seek to simplify, do it as a means of knowing Him more. When you surrender, or behave with humility or sacrifice, do it with the sole purpose in mind to know Him. #Quote by Charles R. Swindoll
Surrender quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#47. When you surrender and stop resisting and stop trying to change that which you can't change, but be in the moment, be fully open to the blessings you've already received and those that are yet to come and stand in that space of gratitude ... and look at where you are and how far you've come and what you've accomplished - when you can claim THAT and SEE that, the literal vibration of your life will change. #Quote by Oprah Winfrey
Surrender quotes by Goswami Kriyananda
#48. But surrender also means your back's to the wall and saying, "Okay, I give up." But rather it's a joyful self-offering. When you come to the point of realizing that "I never get it right. I always make a mess of things; I can't do anything right. Let him do it." And then you ask his power to do it through you and you find suddenly that it works that way. #Quote by Goswami Kriyananda
Surrender quotes by Kiersten White
#49. He leans in, and I smile against his lips, finally give up and let his love flood in and carve the last of my stone heart into a new shape I'm only just discovering.
Somehow it doesn't feel like a surrender.
It feels like a victory. #Quote by Kiersten White
Surrender quotes by Karen Chance
#50. I turned over, and those big hands got to work on my back. I stifled a whimper in the pillow, because Marco's idea of a massage bore no resemblance whatsoever to the relaxing spa variety. There was no lavender oil, no soothing music, no hot towels. Just an all-out assault on cramped muscles, until they cowered in surrender and turned to Jell-O. #Quote by Karen Chance
Surrender quotes by Felix Morley
#51. The power of the state is measured by the power that men surrender to it. #Quote by Felix Morley
Surrender quotes by Mark Helprin
#52. They gave themselves up to the stars the way swimmers can surrender to the waves, and the stars took them without resistance. #Quote by Mark Helprin
Surrender quotes by Peter Guber
#53. Telling purposeful stories is interactive. It's not a monolog. Ultimately, purposeful tellers must surrender control of their stories, creating a gap for the listener(s) to willingly cross in order to take ownership. Only when the listener(s) own the tellers' story and make it theirs, will they virally market it. #Quote by Peter Guber
Surrender quotes by John De Ruiter
#54. For you to access your own innermost as awareness is for you to surrender form after form after form, enabling you as awareness to recede to what you first are, for you to be meaning. #Quote by John De Ruiter
Surrender quotes by Andrew Cohen
#55. You are the only one who can do this. That's the ultimately challenging and profoundly liberating truth you discover in Evolutionary Enlightenment. Any individual who is committed to this path has to know, at the deepest level, that he or she is the only one who could possibly do this. And that is because there is no other. You have discovered that fact, directly, for yourself. From the absolute or nondual perspective that emerges in spiritual revelation, there is only ONE. There literally is no other; there is only One without a second. To truly understand conscious evolution, you must grapple with the profound implications of that fact. I believe we can only consciously evolve to the degree that we have realized at the deepest level of our being that we are that One without a second.

In an evolutionary context, facing into the truth of nonduality - that the many is the One and that the One is ultimately who we always are - forces a confrontation with any relationship to the life process that is less than whole, complete, and fully committed. To consciously evolve is to surrender unconditionally to the truth that there is no other and at the same time to accept responsibility for what that means in an evolving universe - a cosmos that is slowly but surely becoming aware of itself through you and me. That One without a second is simultaneously awakening to itself as it develops, as it evolves, and it is that One, as you and me, alone, that can now begin to take res #Quote by Andrew Cohen
Surrender quotes by John McCain
#56. (Obama) really has no experience or knowledge or judgment about the issue of Iraq and he has wanted to surrender for a long time. #Quote by John McCain
Surrender quotes by Isaac Asimov
#57. To surrender to ignorance and call it God has always been premature, and it remains premature today. #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Surrender quotes by Howard Zinn
#58. When Chief Black Hawk was defeated and captured in 1832, he made a surrender speech:

I fought hard. But your guns were well aimed. The bullets flew like birds in the air, and whizzed by our ears like the wind through the trees in the winter. My warriors fell around me. . . The sun rose dim on us in the morning, and at night it sunk in a dark cloud, and looked like a ball of fire. That was the last sun that shone on Black Hawk. . . He is now a prisoner to the white men. . . He has done nothing for which an Indian ought to be ashamed. He has fought for his countrymen, the squaws and papooses, against white men, who came year after year, to cheat them and take away their lands. You know the cause of out making war. It is known to all white men. They ought to be ashamed of it. Indians are not deceitful. The white men speak bad of the Indian and look at him spitefully. But the Indian does not tell lies. Indians do not steal. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Surrender quotes by Friedrich Paulus
#59. Army requests immediate permission to surrender in order to save lives of remaining troops. #Quote by Friedrich Paulus
Surrender quotes by Wentworth Miller
#60. I surrender the idea of having some kind of control over the arc of my career a lot of the time because you never know what tomorrow's going to bring. #Quote by Wentworth Miller
Surrender quotes by Max Brooks
#61. The living dead had taken more from us than land and loved ones. They'd robbed us of our confidence as the planet's dominant life form. We were a shaken, broken species, driven to the edge of extinction and grateful only for tomorrow with perhaps a little less suffering than today. Was this the legacy we would leave our children, a level of anxiety and self-doubt not seen since our simian ancestors cowered in the tallest trees? What kind of world would they rebuild? Would they rebuild at all? Could they continue to progress, knowing that they would be powerless to reclaim their future? And what if that future saw another rise of the living dead? Would our descendants rise to meet them in battle, or simply crumple in meek surrender and accept what they believe to be their inevitable extinction? For this alone, we had to reclaim our planet. We had to prove to ourselves that we could do it, and leave that proof as this war's greatest monument. The long, hard road back to humanity, or the regressive ennui of Earth's once-proud primates. That was the choice, and it had to be made now. #Quote by Max Brooks
Surrender quotes by Jason Mraz
#62. Stress is the result of not listening to your heart. If you ignore it for too long, and surrender your power to someone else, your chest will explode with panic. I take plenty of time for me. #Quote by Jason Mraz
Surrender quotes by J.R.Nyquist
#63. The problem, then, is not East versus West. The problem is that the elites in nearly every country have become rotten and socialist. As Bukovsky wrote in his book, "Even the ageless James Bond does not fight the KGB, but is most frequently in an alliance with the KGB, against some mythical super-corporation headed, as a rule, by a lunatic capitalist."
Bukovsky's book, "Judgment in Moscow," will be released in English in May. What does he say happened toward the supposed end of the Cold War? Bukovsky wrote, "This was a full debacle, a total surrender of its positions by the West at the most critical moment of our history. #Quote by J.R.Nyquist
Surrender quotes by Jean Hamilton-Fford
#64. You know, without a doubt, that surrender is the only option to fulfill whatever you are attempting. #Quote by Jean Hamilton-Fford
Surrender quotes by Rajneesh
#65. A real Master is not a teacher: a real Master is an awakener. His function is totally different from a teacher; his function is far more difficult. And only very few people can stay with a Master because to wake up after millions of lives is not an ordinary feat; it is a miracle. And to allow somebody to wake you up needs great trust, great surrender. #Quote by Rajneesh
Surrender quotes by Marianne Williamson
#66. I surrender my fears and burdens to God. I needn't carry into my day the burdens of my existence. Rather, I surrender them into the hands of God. I know that they will be lifted from me, for what I place on the altar in my mind is then altered in my life. When I do not know what to say or do, He who is alive within me will illumine my thinking and guide my words. When a possible outcome makes me weak with fear, I will feel His arms around me. And when the road seems lonely and long before me, I will know I am not alone. Dear God, Please take from me the burdens that I carry. Please uplift my thinking and bring forth a miracle. Send a wave of love to disperse my fear. And so it is. Amen. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Surrender quotes by Aldous Huxley
#67. It is a scene of Satyrs and Nymphs, of pursuits and captures, provocative resistances followed by the enthusiastic surrender of lips to bearded lips, of panting bosoms to the impatience of rough hands, the whole accompanied by a babel of shouting, squealing and shrill laughter #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Surrender quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#68. But if you could for a time wipe out all the poets and all their poetry from the world, then you would soon discover, by their very absence, where the men of action got their energy from, and who really supplied the life-sap to their harvest-field. It is not those who have plunged deep down into the Pundit's Ocean of Renunciation, nor those who are always clinging to their possessions; it is not those who have become adepts in turning out quantities of work, nor those who are ever telling the dry beads of duty,--it is not these who win at last. But it is those who love, because they live. These truly win, for they truly surrender. They accept pain with all their strength and with all their strength they remove pain. It is they who create, because they know the secret of true joy, which is the secret of detachment. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Surrender quotes by Thomm Quackenbush
#69. You have to surrender yourself to the experience. #Quote by Thomm Quackenbush
Surrender quotes by Arthur Gordon Webster
#70. People who take the risk make a tremendous discovery: The more things you care about, and the more intensely you care, the more alive you are. This capacity for caring can illuminate any relationship: marriage, family, friendships-even the ties of affection that often join humans and animals. Each of us is born with some of it, but whether we let it expand or diminish is largely up to us. To care, you have to surrender the armor of indifference. You have to be willing to act, to make the first move. #Quote by Arthur Gordon Webster
Surrender quotes by Rahul Kanakia
#71. The thing no one understands about me is that sometimes, once in a while, I get this feeling like I can do anything, and that feeling is so rare and so beautiful that it's really hard not to simply surrender to it. #Quote by Rahul Kanakia
Surrender quotes by Bryant McGill
#72. Don't run from your pain - run into your pain. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Surrender quotes by Paul Tournier
#73. Life can become once more a grand adventure if we will surrender it to god. He brings one adventure to an end, only to open another to us. With him we must be ready for anything. #Quote by Paul Tournier
Surrender quotes by Glenda Green
#74. Love is a gift, a miracle, a mystery. You are led to its threshold by your affinities, by your inclinations, and by the yearnings of your heart, although its power and presentation is by grace, not by expectation, demand, or requirement. Love is the ultimate paradox, for it is the lamb that is also the lion. Love is the ultimate power, which resides in surrender. #Quote by Glenda Green
Surrender quotes by Jen Pollock Michel
#75. We all have a tendency to use prayer to dictate to God. #Quote by Jen Pollock Michel
Surrender quotes by Timothy Snyder
#76. having a passport is not a sign of surrender. On the contrary, it is liberating, since it creates the possibility of new experiences. It allows us to see how other people, sometimes wiser than we, react to similar problems. Since so much of what has happened in the last year is familiar to the rest of the world or from recent history, we must observe and listen. #Quote by Timothy Snyder
Surrender quotes by Lauren Blakely
#77. Something breaks inside me. Something breaks beautifully … It's not the awareness of what I'm feeling. I'm not a stupid guy. I'm smart and I've known for weeks what's been happening. Instead, it's the acceptance of it, the surrender to it, to falling ridiculously in love again. #Quote by Lauren Blakely
Surrender quotes by Miranda Esmonde-White
#78. Life is programmed to live,
Life is created to live,
Life does not surrender easily,
We can be strong
If we choose to be strong
We can be energetic
If we choose to be energetic
We can be pain-free
If we choose to be pain-free
We ccan be independent
If we choose to be independent.
But if we choose all tha, we must choose to move.
We must choose to exercise! #Quote by Miranda Esmonde-White
Surrender quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#79. All of us need a vision for our lives, and even as we work to achieve that vision, we must surrender to the power that is greater than we know. It's one of the defining principles of my life that I love to share: God can dream a bigger dream for you than you could ever dream for yourself. #Quote by Oprah Winfrey
Surrender quotes by James A. Michener
#80. I thought that perhaps the most creative mix for a society would be nine parts solid worker from institutions like MIT to one part poet from Marrakech, but in spite of the fact that I myself had been trained to be one of the solid workers, which meant that all of my sympathies lay with that group, I would not surrender the poet. The problem was to find him. #Quote by James A. Michener
Surrender quotes by Robyn Young
#81. Robert held back in the press, letting others go after the rebels fleeing before the charge. Their orders were to slaughter anyone found in the streets to provoke a quick surrender, after which mercy would be granted to those left alive. He had seen death throughout his life, but the duel he'd had with Guy was the closest he'd come to ending someone's life and even then there had been rules imposed. There were no such boundaries here. The freedom to kill was a dizzying, precipitous feeling. But the veteran knights were pushing in behind him, forcing the issue. With a snarl of frustration at his own hesitation, Robert fixed on one man darting away down an alley and spurred his horse out of the crush in pursuit. #Quote by Robyn Young
Surrender quotes by Anne Mallory
#82. Go somewhere else. Somewhere safer.
Anywhere else. God, please. Or he was likely to do something horribly awful, like surrender his sanity and kiss her. #Quote by Anne Mallory
Surrender quotes by June Jordan
#83. The purpose of polite behavior is never virtuous. Deceit, surrender, and concealment these are not virtues. The goal of the mannerly is comfort, per se. #Quote by June Jordan
Surrender quotes by Nigel Hamilton
#84. Our only president who has died as U.S. commander in chief in war is Franklin Delano Roosevelt - who died of a cerebral hemorrhage or massive stroke on April 12, 1945, only three weeks before the unconditional surrender of the German armed forces he had laid down as implacable Allied policy two years before. #Quote by Nigel Hamilton
Surrender quotes by Aleksandra Ninkovic
#85. You remain so silent,as carried away,
through mist of your thoughts,so dark and so deep,
and even awake same as when asleep,
waiting for enlightenment of a newborn day.

I'm bound to your silence,to the core i'm bound,
to delicate stillness,so cruel and so tender,
that despite of danger,soul yearns to surrender,
to that mesmerizing absence of the sound.

I resign everything i once knew so clear,
throwing in the wind fragments of my past,
they are worth so little,they're nothing but dust,
nothing to remember,and nothing to fear... #Quote by Aleksandra Ninkovic
Surrender quotes by A. Zavarelli
#86. 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
Surrender quotes by Victor Davis Hanson
#87. Most authoritarians do not surrender power voluntarily. #Quote by Victor Davis Hanson
Surrender quotes by Marianne Williamson
#88. Happiness is the choice I make today. It does not rest on my circumstances, but on my frame of mind. I surrender to God any emotional habits that lead me down the path of unhappiness, and pray for guidance in shifting my thoughts. In cultivating the habits of happiness, I attract the people and situations that match its frequency. I smile more often, give praise more often, give thanks more often, and am glad more often. For such is my choice today. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Surrender quotes by Alexander Pushkin
#89. To love all ages yield surrender;
But to the young it's raptures bring
A blessing bountiful and tender-
As storms refresh the fields of spring. #Quote by Alexander Pushkin
Surrender quotes by Corrie Ten Boom
#90. You see, a potter can only mold the clay when it lies completely in his hand. It requires complete surrender. #Quote by Corrie Ten Boom
Surrender quotes by Frederick Lenz
#91. When you find a teacher, you devote your time and energy to what they believe in. You surrender not them but to the infinite, which operates through them. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Surrender quotes by Hafez
#92. A day of Silence
Can be a pilgrimage in itself.

A day of Silence
Can help you listen
To the Soul play
Its marvelous lute and drum.

Is not most talking
A crazed defense of a crumbling fort?

I thought we came here
To surrender in Silence,

To yield to Light and Happiness,

To Dance within,
In celebration of Love's Victory #Quote by Hafez
Surrender quotes by Judith Orloff
#93. Surrender to life today. Don't fight anything. Just enjoy the flow. #Quote by Judith Orloff
Surrender quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#94. Plantain branches, like these ones here, Sister Whittaker, are also said to be symbolic of the human body. Because of that shape, plantains are used as gestures of peace - as gestures of humanity, you might say. You throw one on the ground at the feet of your enemy, to show your surrender or your willingness to consider compromise. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Surrender quotes by Rosalie Lario
#95. When they finally made love, he would accept no more than total surrender from her, just as he would surrender himself to her. There was nothing casual about what lay between them, and he wouldn't allow her to pretend otherwise.

~Ethan #Quote by Rosalie Lario
Surrender quotes by Bey Deckard
#96. With a growl, Baltsaros shoved him hard so that he fell back on the bed. The older man was on him in an instant, his teeth sharp and lips sticky and hot against Tom's throat as he quickly pushed his spit-and-blood covered cock deep inside him in one brutal thrust. Tom grunted from the pain, both in his neck and ass, and brought his hands up to the captain's waist to hold on as he was fucked hard and quick. His own cock sat heavy against his stomach, each stroke of Baltsaros's wide head inside him firing nerves that sent waves of pleasure to his groin. Tom let out a sharp cry as the captain bit him savagely, his thrusts vicious and jarring. It was almost too much for a moment, almost overwhelming, but then the adrenaline crested inside him and Tom let go, falling into the bliss of surrender. #Quote by Bey Deckard
Surrender quotes by Simon Mawer
#97. All the answers you may wish for lie within faith, but it demands a complete and incontinent surrender, an immersion as total as any baptism. Indeed baptism is a kind of enactment of the surrender: you bathe in faith, you swim in it, you live by it, surrounded by it, buoyed up by it, engulfed by it. You drown in it, for at times it takes your breath away as entirely as any lungful of water ... All the answers lie in faith; and when you lose your faith you have no choice but to substitute for if a philosophy that deliberately and coldly offers no answers at all. #Quote by Simon Mawer
Surrender quotes by Kwame Kilpatrick
#98. I learned that you can go after things before you are ready and so if you are going after it, you need to make sure that your spirit is ready. I learned also how to surrender to His will and not mine. Sometimes when you are going through something - and I am a guy who runs campaigns - I can make this happen. There has never been a campaign where I was picked to win.. I was always coming from behind. #Quote by Kwame Kilpatrick
Surrender quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#99. Humanly speaking, it is possible to understand the Sermon on the Mount in a thousand different ways. But Jesus knows only one possibility: simple surrender and obedience - not interpreting or applying it, but doing and obeying it. That is the only way to hear his words. He does not mean for us to discuss it as an ideal. He really means for us to get on with it. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Surrender quotes by Hans Erich Nossack
#100. Why go on? I mean, why record all this? Wouldn't it be better to surrender it to oblivion for all time? For those who were there certainly don't have to read it. And the others, and those who will come later? What if they read it only to enjoy something strange and uncanny and to make themselves feel more alive? Does it take an apocalypse to do that? Or a descent into the underworld? #Quote by Hans Erich Nossack
Surrender quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#101. Surrender is surrender to this moment, not to a story through which you interpret this moment and then try to resign yourself to it. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Surrender quotes by Michael Ian Black
#102. There is no word for feeling nostalgic about the future, but that's what a parent's tears often are, a nostalgia for something that has not yet occurred. They are the pain of hope, the helplessness of hope, and finally, the surrender to hope. #Quote by Michael Ian Black
Surrender quotes by R.v.m.
#103. Like a feather in the air,Like a leaf in the sea,I surrender to thee,I surrender to thee.-RVM #Quote by R.v.m.
Surrender quotes by Caroline Myss
#104. Of God in my life. I surrender my mind, my heart, my need for safety, and my need for rational explanations and orderly instructions to God's will for me. I trust that all that is in my life is as it should be. I release #Quote by Caroline Myss
Surrender quotes by Billy Graham
#105. We must understand what the word believe implies. It means "commit" and "surrender. #Quote by Billy Graham
Surrender quotes by Debbie Ford
#106. To experience emotional freedom, we must accept, surrender, and let go of our wounds. We must be willing to take responsibility for what we're holding on to, which is usually a hurt or pain from the past that leaves us feeling victimized. #Quote by Debbie Ford
Surrender quotes by Leigh Brackett
#107. Surrender is a perfectly acceptable alternative in extreme circumstances. #Quote by Leigh Brackett
Surrender quotes by John McCain
#108. And, if we lost, then who win? Did Al Qaida win? When on the floor of the House of Representatives they cheer - they cheer - when they pass a withdrawal motion that is a certain date for surrender, what were they cheering? Surrender? Defeat? #Quote by John McCain
Surrender quotes by Chameli Ardagh
#109. Let the world kiss you, sister. Let the moment kiss the most raw and tender spot in your heart until you cannot help but surrender, open. #Quote by Chameli Ardagh
Surrender quotes by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
#110. 'Birdman' came from a very beautiful side of me, from a part of honesty and surrender about things. #Quote by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
Surrender quotes by Katherine Mansfield
#111. I sometimes wonder whether the act of surrender is not one of the greatest of all - the highest. It is one of the [most] difficult of all ... You see it's so immensely complicated. It needs real humility and at the same time, an absolute belief in one's own essential freedom. It is an act of faith. At the last moments, like all great acts, it is pure risk. This is true for me as a human being and as a writer. Dear Heaven, how hard it is to let go - to step into the blue. And yet one's creative life depends on it and one desires to do nothing else. #Quote by Katherine Mansfield
Surrender quotes by Kurt Bjorklund
#112. A PRAYER FOR TODAY Lord God, my aim is to be a good and faithful servant of Yours. I surrender all of my life to You and to Your ends ... . Amen. #Quote by Kurt Bjorklund
Surrender quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#113. There is a kind of dictatorship that can come about through a creeping paralysis of thought, readiness to accept paternalistic measures by government, and along with those measures comes a surrender of our own responsibilities and therefore a surrender of our own thought over our own lives and our own right to exercise the vote. The free system gives the right to every citizen to do something for himself. Because he has the right, the opportunity is always there. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Surrender quotes by Richard Carlson
#114. Ironically, when you surrender your need to hog the glory, the attention you used to need from other people is replaced by a quiet inner confidence that is derived from letting others have it. #Quote by Richard Carlson
Surrender quotes by Charles F. Stanley
#115. The length of time it takes to catch on to this relationship depends on us - not God. The more willing we are to confess our inadequacy, the easier it is for us to fully surrender to His will for our lives. #Quote by Charles F. Stanley
Surrender quotes by Maria V. Snyder
#116. [Riley] slapped his hands to his face and then dropped them as if in surrender. 'I always say the wrong thing around you. Look, can we start over?'
Over?"
Yes. Over. Wipe the board clean.'
But I would have to go back to hating you and not trusting you' I said
Oh, well don't do that.' He paused and chewed his lip. 'Does that mean you like and trust me now?' "
- Riley and Trella #Quote by Maria V. Snyder
Surrender quotes by Bryant McGill
#117. On the still calm waters of surrender, the reflections of clarity appears. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Surrender quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#118. Hauk!" a man shouted in the hallway outside.
He fell back from the door and braced himself against the wall. Sumi went low in the center of the room, behind a crate.
"What?" Dancer answered.
"Surrender or we're going to kill them all! Piece by piece, until their screams echo in your ears!"
Dancer laughed at the threat. "You do that and I will eat you, piece by fucking piece. The three of them are the only thing keeping you alive right now. Release them and we'll let you live. It's your choice on how you leave this place. On your feet or feet first. You have thirty seconds to decide. #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Surrender quotes by Richard Louv
#119. It was frightening and wonderful to surrender to the wind's power. #Quote by Richard Louv
Surrender quotes by John Bunyan
#120. The conversation between Faithful and Talkative ends when Faithful challenges Talkative to show in his life the fruits of the truths he so easily talks about. This conversation exposes the matter, and the false pilgrim is soon separated from the true pilgrim.
To cry out against sin but to tolerate it comfortably in the heart is an equation that sums up the false pretense of Talkative. The work of grace in the heart offers proofs that cannot be denied. The eloquent Talkative simply lacks the experiential work of grace in his heart.
Again, Christians should be warned not to judge too quickly, since many Christians struggle with sin and surrender in the battlefield of life and often fail. The important thing to understand is that God will always produce a fruitful life in those He has conquered and occupies. The same Lord will disqualify those whose religion is only talk by ordaining that their life lacks the abundance of genuine good fruit while bad fruit abounds.
5. #Quote by John Bunyan
Surrender quotes by Bede Griffiths
#121. God had brought me to my knees and made me acknowledge my own nothingness, and out of that knowledge I had been reborn. I was no longer the centre of my life and therefore I could see God in everything. #Quote by Bede Griffiths
Surrender quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#122. It requires courage not to surrender oneself to the ingenious or compassionate counsels of despair that would induce a man to eliminate himself from the ranks of the living; but it does not follow from this that every huckster who is fattened and nourished in self-confidence has more courage than the man who yielded to despair. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Surrender quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#123. I had been conscious of depression and so I voiced to (Sec. Of War Stimson) my grave misgivings, first on the basis of my belief that Japan was already defeated and that dropping the bomb was completely unnecessary, and secondly because I thought that our country should avoid shocking world opinion by the use of a weapon whose employment was, I thought, no longer mandatory as a measure to save American lives. It was my belief that Japan was, at this very moment, seeking a way to surrender with a minimum loss of 'face.' #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Surrender quotes by C.L. Wilson
#124. But the Dark cannot claim what Light does not surrender. #Quote by C.L. Wilson
Surrender quotes by Brian Herbert
#125. If you surrender, you have already lost. If you refuse to give up, though, no
matter the odds against you, at least you have succeeded in trying. #Quote by Brian Herbert
Surrender quotes by Wayne Dyer
#126. Everything that is observed in the physical world has as its source that which is invisible. This means we must surrender to the Spirit and to the invisible part of ourselves. Then learning to manifest is really nothing more than learning to manifest another aspect of ourselves. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Surrender quotes by George Leonard
#127. For the master, surrender means there are no experts. There are only learners. #Quote by George Leonard
Surrender quotes by T. S. Eliot
#128. My friend, blood shaking my heart
The awful daring of a moment's surrender
Which an age of prudence can never retract
By this, and this only, we have existed
Which is not to be found in our obituaries
Or in memories draped by the beneficent spider
Or under seals broken by the lean solicitor
In our empty rooms #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Surrender quotes by Terry Brooks
#129. Shea, particularly, had passed the point where his chief emotion was fear; now he felt only a sense of numbness that dulled his mind into self-imposed surrender, a robot-like acceptance of the fact that he was being led to the proverbial slaughter. #Quote by Terry Brooks
Surrender quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#130. Like all who are impassioned, I take blissful delight in losing myself, in fully experiencing the thrill of surrender. And so I often write with no desire to think, in an externalized reverie, letting the words cuddle me like a baby in their arms. They form sentences with no meaning, flowing softly like water I can feel, a forgetful stream whose ripples mingle and undefine, becoming other, still other ripples, and still again other. Thus ideas and images, throbbing with expressiveness, pass through me in resounding processions of pale silks on which imagination shimmers like moonlight, dappled and indefinite. #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Surrender quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#131. Broken people have an irresistible urge to try to 'fix' the world. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Surrender quotes by David Deida
#132. The word "surrender" is often interpreted as giving up, as weakness, as admitting defeat. Although this is one way to use the word, we will use it in a different way. Surrendering means letting go of your resistance to the total openness of who you are. It means giving up the tension of the little vortex you believe yourself to be and realizing the deep power of the ocean you truly are. It means to open with no boundaries, emotional or physical, so you ease wide beyond any limiting sense of self you might have. #Quote by David Deida
Surrender quotes by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
#133. Brokenness is the shattering of my self-will - the absolute surrender of my will to the will of God. It is saying "Yes, Lord!" - no resistance, no chafing, no stubbornness - simply submitting myself to His direction and will in my life. #Quote by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
Surrender quotes by Muhammad Ali
#134. Outrun the people who quit when they feel discomfort, outrun the people who stop because of despair, outrun the people who are delayed because of prejudice, outrun the people who surrender to failure, and outrun the opponent who loses sight of the goal. Because if you want to win, the will can never retire, the race can never stop, and faith can never weaken. #Quote by Muhammad Ali
Surrender quotes by Anonymous
#135. Game Over! In this country, we outnumber them by the hundreds of millions, yet in the end, they'll win. They've already won. Over decades, with the appetite of the greedy and the cunning of the wicked, their hired agents have built up a national archetype that's now unstoppable. While we were distracted by our own shadows, their needles pierced the national psyche, slow dripping the poison of mendacity into our nation's bloodstream. They contaminated the law with toxic corruption, and while invoking the name of freedom, they crushed any opposition with bone-cracking efficiency. When we finally peel away the submissive bandages that wrapped our imaginary wounds and promised us safety, we'll find our flesh gone to dust, leaving only a willowy skeleton of hopelessness and surrender. #Quote by Anonymous
Surrender quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#136. No, I am not powerful nor do I wish to be, for it is God using my weakness that makes me potent and I would never wish to surrender that. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Surrender quotes by Dorothy West
#137. Once various forms were signed, I was separated from my free will, led down the corridors into a room which was now to be the boundary of my existence, told to surrender my clothes, handed that comic invention, the hospital gown, and sent to bed in broad daylight like a child being stripped of her privileges. #Quote by Dorothy West
Surrender quotes by David Sanborn
#138. When you're on stage, unless you surrender to the moment, you're not telling the truth. I look for people that tell me the truth. #Quote by David Sanborn
Surrender quotes by Callie Hart
#139. This isn't a let's-date-and-see-where-life-takes-us deal, Sera. This is all or nothing. This is to the ends of the fucking earth and back. This is giving all, giving everything, total fucking surrender. Total victory, and total defeat. There is no going back from it. Not ever. #Quote by Callie Hart
Surrender quotes by Eve Ensler
#140. Prostration: placing the body in reverence, to submit, to surrender. In many faiths it is used to relinquish the ego. In Tibetan tantric Buddhism they do one hundred thousand prostrations to overcome pride. In Islam, prostration has been known to overcome many diseases. #Quote by Eve Ensler
Surrender quotes by Joshua A. Norton
#141. To Mr. Seward: It is my desire that, in case Maximillian will surrender, he be sent here a prisoner of war, but that in the event of his continuing the war, or refusing to surrender, then he be shot. #Quote by Joshua A. Norton
Surrender quotes by Edward Snowden
#142. There is, simply, no way, to ignore privacy. Because a citizenry's freedoms are interdependent, to surrender your own privacy is really to surrender everyone's. You might choose to give it up out of convenience, or under the popular pretext that privacy is only required by those who have something to hide. But saying that you don't need or want privacy because you have nothing to hide is to assume that no one should have, or could have to hide anything – including their immigration status, unemployment history, financial history, and health records. You're assuming that no one, including yourself, might object to revealing to anyone information about their religious beliefs, political affiliations and sexual activities, as casually as some choose to reveal their movie and music tastes and reading preferences. Ultimately, saying that you don't care about privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different from saying you don't care about freedom of speech because you have nothing to say. Or that you don't care about freedom of the press because you don't like to read. Or that you don't care about freedom of religion because you don't believe in God. Or that you don't care about the freedom to peaceably assemble because you're a lazy, antisocial agoraphobe. Just because this or that freedom might not have meaning to you today doesn't mean that that it doesn't or won't have meaning tomorrow, to you, or to your neighbor – or to the crowds of principled dissidents I was follo #Quote by Edward Snowden
Surrender quotes by Andrew Murray
#143. [T]he elements of holiness in us are these, each corresponding to some special aspect of God's holiness: deep Restfulness (ch. 3), humble Reverence (ch. 4), entire Surrender (ch. 5), joyful Adoration (ch. 6), simple Obedience (ch. 7). These all prepare for the Divine Indwelling (ch. 8). [ ... ]
It is simply impossible for God to dwell or rule when self is on the throne. [ ... ]
Just when we see that there is nothing in us to admire or rest in, God sees in us everything to admire and to rest in, because there is room for Himself. [ ... ]
Lowliness and holiness. Keep fast hold of the intimate connection. Lowliness is taking the place that becomes me; holiness, giving God the place that becomes Him. If I be nothing before Him, and God be all to me, I am in the sure path of holiness. Lowliness is holiness, because it gives all the glory to God. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Surrender quotes by Selenis Leyva
#144. I believe in God. I got down on my knees and I said, 'I get it. If this isn't for me, then it isn't for me.' And then a week later, I started working. I worked on 'The Following,' I worked on 'Elementary,' I worked on a pilot and then I got 'Orange.' So literally from that moment of deep surrender, that's when you're blessed. #Quote by Selenis Leyva
Surrender quotes by R.A. Torrey
#145. If the Holy Spirit is a person, and a Divine Person, and we do not know Him as such, then we are robbing a Divine Being of the worship and the faith and the love and the surrender to Himself which are His due. #Quote by R.A. Torrey
Surrender quotes by A.S. Byatt
#146. A man may be in as just possession of truth as of a City, and yet be forced to surrender it - this was the wise saying of Sir Thomas Browne. #Quote by A.S. Byatt
Surrender quotes by Ann Voskamp
#147. Every time I surrender to stress, aren't I advertising the unreliability of God? #Quote by Ann Voskamp
Surrender quotes by Chogyam Trungpa
#148. In order to establish a real teacher-student relationship it is necessary for us to give up all our preconceptions regarding that relationship and the condition of opening and surrender. Surrender means opening oneself completely, trying to get beyond fascination and expectation. #Quote by Chogyam Trungpa
Surrender quotes by Francis Chan
#149. I honestly believe that most of us - while we might say we want to be led by the Spirit - are actually scared of this reality. I know I am. What would it mean? What if He asks you to give up something you're not ready to give up? What if He leads you where you don't want to go? What if he tells you to change jobs? To move? Are you willing to surrender to Him, no matter where He wants to take you? Am I? #Quote by Francis Chan
Surrender quotes by Reginald A. Ray
#150. Truth makes little sense and has no real impact if it is merely a collection of abstract ideas. Truth that is living experience, on the other hand, is challenging, threatening, and transforming. The first kind of truth consists of information collected and added, from a safe distance, to our mental inventory. The second kind involves risking our familiar and coherent interpretation of the world -it is an act of surrender, of complete and embodied cognition that is seeing, feeling, intuiting, and comprehending all at once. Living truth leads us ever more deeply into the unknown territory of what our life is. #Quote by Reginald A. Ray
Surrender quotes by Pankaj Mishra
#151. Political elites look increasingly interchangeable: Blair, Brown, and Cameron have all tried to provide cover for the surrender of sovereignty to foreign investors with invocations of 'British' values, and, more opportunistically, anti-immigrant rhetoric. #Quote by Pankaj Mishra
Surrender quotes by Lykke Li
#152. I'll always be in some type of turmoil. So what I've tried to do is just surrender to that. #Quote by Lykke Li
Surrender quotes by Marya Hornbacher
#153. Soon madness has worn you down. It's easier to do what it says than argue. In this way, it takes over your mind. You no longer know where it ends and you begin. You believe anything it says. You do what it tells you, no matter how extreme or absurd. If it says you're worthless, you agree. You plead for it to stop. You promise to behave. You are on your knees before it, and it laughs. #Quote by Marya Hornbacher
Surrender quotes by Duffy Robins
#154. the blasé religiosity of most…teenagers is not the result of poor communication but the result of excellent communication of a watered-down gospel so devoid of God's self-giving love in Jesus Christ, so immune to the sending love of the Holy Spirit, that it might not be Christianity at all? What if the church models a way of life that asks not passionate surrender but ho-hum ascent? #Quote by Duffy Robins
Surrender quotes by Idries Shah
#155. The important place held by Jesus among the world's six hundred million Moslems ... and the agreement of both religions about the necessity for surrender to God as the means of salvation, thus makes it comparatively easy for a Moslem to address himself to Christians: the sympathy and the history are already there. #Quote by Idries Shah
Surrender quotes by Mike Gordon
#156. Surrender to the flow. #Quote by Mike Gordon
Surrender quotes by C. Sean McGee
#157. Infants never learn to soothe themselves to sleep. They learn, abandoned in seclusion, that no matter the volume of their despondence, no matter the force of their tears, when they are alone and frightened, no-one will ever come to their rescue. Infants do not soothe themselves. They merely surrender. And it is caged in their cribs where the infants learn, in the face of their demons, to remain silent and submitting. #Quote by C. Sean McGee
Surrender quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#158. Lay down true principles and adhere to them inflexibly. Do not be frightened into their surrender by the alarms of the timid, or the croakings of wealth against the ascendency of the people. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Surrender quotes by Marty Rubin
#159. Don't resist! Open the door when love comes knocking. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Surrender quotes by Nikki Sex
#160. 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
Surrender quotes by Milan Kundera
#161. In this country people don't respect the morning. An alarm clock violently wakes them up, shatters their sleep like the blow of an ax, and they immediately surrender themselves to deadly haste. Can you tell me what kind of day can follow a beginning of such violence? What happens to people whose alarm clock daily gives them a small electric shock? Each day they become more used to violence and less used to pleasure. Believe me, it is the mornings that determine a man's character. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Surrender quotes by Ayn Rand
#162. If you surrender everything to the government and give it total power to plan the whole economy, this will not guarantee your economic security, but it will guarantee the descent of the entire nation to a level of miserable poverty
as the practical results of every totalitarian economy, communist or fascist, have demonstrated. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Surrender quotes by Daniel Webster
#163. Who will show me any Constitutional injunction which makes it the duty of the American people to surrender everything valuable in life, and even life, itself, whenever the purposes of an ambitious and mischievous government may require it? ... A free government with an uncontrolled power of military conscription is the most ridiculous and abominable contradiction and nonsense that ever entered into the heads of men. #Quote by Daniel Webster
Surrender quotes by Ayn Rand
#164. I win by means of nothing but logic and I surrender to nothing but logic. I do not surrender my reason or deal with men who surrender theirs. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Surrender quotes by Monjyoti Bhattacharyya
#165. By not doing what I needed to do over and over again for a long time, by playing small, giving in to momentary impulses, instant gratification, and procrastination and being overly comfortable, I was chipping away one tiny insignificant surrender at a time that eventually stacked up into a force that completely jeopardized my relationship with myself. I had no self-worth left #Quote by Monjyoti Bhattacharyya
Surrender quotes by Abiodun Fijabi
#166. Here is announcing vacancies for numerous positions as complainants. Any or no qualification is acceptable. Both genders and all age groups may apply. While no experience is needed, candidate with good blame game skill have an advantage. Blame game skill is the art of holding someone else responsible for your actions and, especially, for the rot in the society. You have an infinitely long list of co-workers to welcome you into their fold. There is a caveat, though. Successful candidates must be willing to surrender their worth and their dream, as they may conflict with their work schedule. In the same vein, leaders or would-be leaders need not apply. #Quote by Abiodun Fijabi
Surrender quotes by Billy Graham
#167. Surrendering to Christ is like signing your name to a blank check and letting the Lord put in the amount. #Quote by Billy Graham
Surrender quotes by Albert Camus
#168. In a moment, when I throw myself down among the absinthe plants to bring their scent into my body, I shall know, appearances to the contrary, that I am fulfilling a truth which is the sun's and which will also be my death's. In a sense, it is indeed my life that I am staking here, a life that tastes of warm stone, that is full of the signs of the sea and the rising song of the crickets. The breeze is cool and the sky blue. I love this life with abandon and wish to speak of it boldly: it makes me proud of my human condition. Yet people have often told me: there's nothing to be proud of. Yes, there is: this sun, this sea, my heart leaping with youth, the salt taste of my body and this vast landscape in which tenderness and glory merge in blue and yellow. It is to conquer this that I need my strength and my resources. Everything here leaves me intact, I surrender nothing of myself, and don no mask: learning patiently and arduously how to live is enough for me, well worth all their arts of living. #Quote by Albert Camus
Surrender quotes by Scott Belsky
#169. Rather than Surrender to Bureaucracy, take it upon yourself to break it #Quote by Scott Belsky
Surrender quotes by Francis Chan
#170. Many times we recognize our weakness, but we fail to recognize what God can accomplish through it. It's a giving up point for far too many people who claim to know the all-powerful God. "I just can't" is a foolish statement for those who know God; it should not be in our vocabulary. "I can't" should be replaced by "I can do all things through him who strengthens me" (Phil. 4:13). Weakness should cause us to surrender to Christ in a way we never have before, to cry out to the One who has also known weakness, who has been tempted in every way, who knows the pull to give up, to move on, to pursue His own way. #Quote by Francis Chan
Surrender quotes by Kate Morton
#171. Cassandra always hid when she read, though she never quite knew why. It was as if she couldn't shake the guilty suspicion that she was being lazy, that surrendering herself so completely to something so enjoyable must surely be wrong. But surrender she did. Let herself drop through the rabbit hole and into a tale of magic and mystery ... #Quote by Kate Morton
Surrender quotes by Maya Banks
#172. This is better than a romance novel." P.J. said with a wistful sigh.
"You read that stuff?" Cole demanded.
"Why the hell do you ask the question like that?" P.J. said, annoyance evident in her tone and expression.
"You just didn't seem the type," Cole mumbled.
She flipped him the bird, and Shea had to bite her lip to keep from laughing. P.J. was easily half Cole's size but she also looked like she had the confidence to take on the much larger man. She might even kick his ass. The idea intrigued Shea greatly.
"I'm tempted to shove one of my romance novels up your ass." P.J. said sharply. "But I love my books too much to desecrate them like that, I'll settle for my boot."
Cole held up his hands in surrender. "I won't say another word. Romance novels are great. I love romance novels. I think everyone should read them. #Quote by Maya Banks
Surrender quotes by Cate Blanchett

Surrender quotes by Colin Trevorrow
#174. I don't believe that a female character needs to surrender her femininity in order to be an action hero. #Quote by Colin Trevorrow
Surrender quotes by Jennifer Donnelly
#175. I've been in contact with her. She approached me months ago. I know the terms of her deal. She's going to tell Ragnar that Ondalina's attack on Miromara was an act of war and that he must surrender. Either he accepts Lucia #Quote by Jennifer Donnelly
Surrender quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#176. Betelgeuse. Sirius. Orion. Antares. The sky is very large, and you are very small. Let the words wash
through him, the voice and its memories pass over him, shivering his skin like the touch of a ghost,
vanishing into darkness.
The Pleiades. Cassiopeia. Taurus. Heaven is wide, and you are very small. Dead, but none the less
powerful for being dead. He spread his hands wide, gripping the fence - those were powerful, too.
Enough to beat a man to death, enough to choke out a life. But even death was not enough to loose the
bands of rage.
With great effort, he let go. Turned his hands palm upward, in gesture of surrender. He reached
beyond the stars, searching. The words formed themselves quietly in his mind, by habit, so quietly he
was not aware of them until he found them echoed in a whisper on his lips. #Quote by Diana Gabaldon
Surrender quotes by A. Zavarelli
#177. 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
Surrender quotes by Krishna Das
#178. Surrender happens by Grace. All we're doing is cleaning up the room so when Surrender walks in, He can sit down. #Quote by Krishna Das
Surrender quotes by Jim Butcher
#179. Apocalypse is a frame of mind." [Nicodemus] said then. "A belief. A surrender to inevitability. It is a despair for the future. It is the death of hope. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Surrender quotes by Tessa Dare
#180. No, no. Don't make that face. Every time I propose to you, you make that twisty, unhappy face. It wears on a man's confidence. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Surrender quotes by Mike Robbins
#181. Our ability to surrender in life is directly related to the amount of peace and fulfillment we experience. #Quote by Mike Robbins
Surrender quotes by Sarina Bowen
#182. I need to say this. I want you, you understand. All of you. Right now. But you need to know this. Outside of here, I will hold your purse. I'll get mani-pedis with you. I'll cry while watching Lifetime movies with you. I will hand over my man card and be your minion everywhere you want, except in the bedroom. In here, I want you to surrender, just a little bit, and let me take the lead. #Quote by Sarina Bowen
Surrender quotes by Tabitha Suzuma
#183. It's horrible being ashamed of someone you care about; it eats away at you. And if you let it get to you, if you give up the fight and surrender, eventually that shame turns to hate. #Quote by Tabitha Suzuma
Surrender quotes by James Baldwin
#184. In order for this to happen, your entire frame of reference will have to change, and you will be forced to surrender many things that you now scarcely know you have. #Quote by James Baldwin
Surrender quotes by Robert E.Lee
#185. I would rather die a thousand deaths than surrender. #Quote by Robert E.Lee
Surrender quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#186. Where one loves, one can follow without agreeing - one can surrender oneself with eyes open. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Surrender quotes by Marianne Williamson
#187. Surrender means, by definition, giving up attachment to results. When we surrender to God, we let go of our attachment to how things happen on the outside and we become more concerned with what happens on the inside. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Surrender quotes by Paolo Giordano
#188. Sex is one of the situations where all things submerged in our subconscious come out, all fears, all desires, all the violence, and all the needs. That's why sex, in my opinion, is never as easy as television shows or jokes present it to be. We are often told that taking pleasure, especially from sex, and surrendering to it are things that happen naturally, gestures that come for free. I find it harder, instead, to learn how to surrender than to learn how to resist. That's exactly what my characters suffer from: the difficulty of covering the distance between desires and their fulfillments, the difficulty of doing "easy" things, such as kissing a girl or lying in bed with her, difficulties that are not only due to external causes, but also often to internal ones. #Quote by Paolo Giordano
Surrender quotes by Michael Perry
#189. Sleeping in the same bed with someone to whom you can admit your failings is a lasting comfort indeed. This is not about "mea culpa" as surrender, it is about "mea culpa" as mortar in binding together the uneven bricks of a human foundation. #Quote by Michael Perry
Surrender quotes by Clint Johnson
#190. Not knowing how mant troops Jenkins truly had, Johnson refused to surrender "unless forced to do so by an exhibition of your boasted strength."
Jenkins fought for more than five hours before pulling back. #Quote by Clint Johnson
Surrender quotes by A. Zavarelli
#191. 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
Surrender quotes by Heather Angelika Dooley
#192. A good writer
never tells your secrets,
they tell their own.

They sacrifice themselves
and surrender you. #Quote by Heather Angelika Dooley
Surrender quotes by Billy Graham
#193. Faith literally means "to give up, surrender, or commit." Faith is complete confidence. #Quote by Billy Graham
Surrender quotes by Anna Banks
#194. That's when I decide that prom is stupid. It's just a dumb dance that might have meant something to the old me, but the new me doesn't really give a flying frick.
And that's when Mark Baker, whom I now refer to as Galen's BFF because of their testosterone-enhanced run-in last year, walks up to me. "You got your dress picked out for prom? Let me guess. It's violet, to match your eyes."
I raise a brow at him. Since Galen has been gone, Mark has been awfully attentive. Not that Mark isn't nice, and not that if it were a year ago, I'd be a babbling idiot if he took the time out of being godlike to ask what I planned on wearing for prom. But like everything else, Mark is so one year ago.
And I don't know if I like that.
I shrug. "I'm probably not going."
Mark is not good at hiding surprise. "You mean Galen won't allow you to-"
"Knock it off. I know you think Galen is controlling or whatever, but you're wrong. And anyways, I can hold my own. If I wanted to go to prom, you can bet your sweet Aspercreme I'd be going."
Mark holds up his hands in surrender. "Simmer down, skillet. I was just asking a polite question. Did you want to talk about starving children or government conspiracy instead?"
I laugh. I'd forgotten how easygoing Mark is. "Sorry. I'm just in a bad mood I guess."
"You think?"
I punch his arm, then feel guilty about how flirty it looks. "Well, nobody's perfect."
The bell rings and he starts walking backward, away fr #Quote by Anna Banks
Surrender quotes by Anne Bronte
#195. It is not, indeed, to be supposed that you would wish to marry any one till you were asked: a girl's affections should never be won unsought. But when they are sought - when the citadel of the heart is fairly besieged - it is apt to surrender sooner than the owner is aware of, and often against her better judgment, and in opposition to all her preconceived ideas of what she could have loved, unless she be extremely careful and discreet. #Quote by Anne Bronte
Surrender quotes by Frank Miller
#196. The girls all know the score. No escape. No surrender. No mercy. We got to kill every last rat bastard one of them, every last one. Not for revenge. Not because they deserve it. not because it'll make the world a better place. We need a heap of bloody bodies so when the mob boss, Wallenquist, looks over his charts of profits and losses, he'll see what it cost him to mess with the girls of Old Town. #Quote by Frank Miller
Surrender quotes by Veronica Roth
#197. He put his hands on hers. The shadows looked like smoke, in the air, but they pulled back into Cyra's body like dozens of strings yanked at once.
Cyra's odd smile was gone, and she was staring at their joined hands.
"What will happen when you let go?" she said quietly.
"You'll be just fine," he said. "You'll learn to control it. You can do that now, remember?"
She let out an airy laugh.
"I can hang on as long as you like," he said.
Her eyes hardened. When she spoke, it was with gritted teeth. "Let go."
Akos couldn't help but think back to something he'd read in one of the books Cyra had put in his room on the sojourn ship. He'd had to read it through a translator, because it was written in Shotet, and it had been called Tenets of Shotet Culture and Belief.
It said: The most marked characteristic of the Shotet people is directly translated as "armored," but outsiders might call it "mettle." It refers not to courageous acts in difficult situations--though the Shotet certainly hold valor in high regard--but to an inherent quality that cannot be learned or imitated; it is in the blood as surely as their revelatory language. Mettle is bearing up again and again under assaults. It is perseverance, acceptance of risk, and the unwillingness to surrender.
That paragraph had never made more sense to him than it did right now. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Surrender quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#198. We must be vigilant in a world which has moved so far from that which is spiritual. It is essential that we reject anything that does not conform to our standards, refusing in the process to surrender that which we desire most: eternal life in the kingdom of God. The storms will still beat at our doors from time to time, for they are an inescapable part of our existence in mortality. We, however, will be far better equipped to deal with them, to learn from them, and to overcome them if we have the gospel at our core and the love of the Savior in our hearts. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Surrender quotes by Mark Steyn
#199. Far from being tortured, the prisoners [at Guantanamo] are being handled literally with kid gloves (or simulated kid-effect gloves). The U.S. military hands each jihadist his complimentary copy of the Koran as delicately as white-gloved butlers bringing His Lordship the Times of London. It's not just unbecoming to buy in to Muslim psychoses; in the end, it's self-defeating. And our self-defeat is their surest shot at victory...Even a loser can win when he's up against a defeatist. A big chunk of Western Civilization, consciously or otherwise, has given the impression that it's dying to surrender to somebody, anybody. Reasonably enough, the jihadists figure: hey, why not us? #Quote by Mark Steyn
Surrender quotes by Doc Hastings
#200. V-J Day, or Victory in Japan Day, marks the date of the Japanese surrender that ended fighting in the Pacific. #Quote by Doc Hastings
