He didn't condescend to his readers, which was why I liked his books, and why I wasn't a big reader of other children's' books. #Quote by Louis Sachar

Thought Provoking quotes by Charles Yu
#9. ......cut us off from our families, our history. So we made it our own place - Chinatown. A place for preservation and self-preservation; give them what they feel what's right, is safe; make it fit the idea of what is out there..Chinatown and indeed being chinese is and always has been, from the very beginning a construction,a performance of features, gestures, culture and exoticism, invention/reinvention of stylization. #Quote by Charles Yu

Thought Provoking quotes by Charlotte Rogan
#31. I have lost patience with the idea of an insignificant human being standing up above the rest of us
whether he is called Reverend or Doctor or Judge
and shouting at us all about this thing or that. As soon as someone starts to pontificate in this way, I am apt to cut him off or leave the room, or, if this can't be done gracefully, I simply arrange that sweet vapid smile on my face that was so useful during the trial but that so infuriates Dr. Cole. After all, I have already taken the measure of my own insignificance, and I survived. #Quote by Charlotte Rogan
Thought Provoking quotes by Steve Pavlina
#32. Achieving meaningful goals requires that you commit your entire ass, not just one cheek. #Quote by Steve Pavlina

Thought Provoking quotes by Megan Rich
#36. I once had a drinking contest with an artist on his yacht... It amused him as I took shot after shot, and I realized that this was the reason he'd invited us, his amusement. Looking back, I thought he didn't expect we'd have anything to say, that my questions about the artist's purpose, his existential quest for self in a communally-brutalized past, were not as amusing as they were thought-provoking, but I'll never know. As I swayed like a sailor in drunken bitterness, I felt something had been sacrificed to his art. He'd gone so far out on that boat there was no way for him to come back. I felt he no longer existed and was just the faded intention of color on canvas. His humanity had surely been washed away with the paint thinner. #Quote by Megan Rich
Thought Provoking quotes by Lauren Groff
#37. The stories themselves aren't what moves him now ... What moves him are the shadowy people behind the stories, the workers weary from their days, gathering at night in front of a comforting bit of fire ... The world then was no less terrifying than it is now, with our nightmares of bombs and disease and technological warfare. Anything held the ability to set of fear ... a nail dropped in a the hay, wolves circling at the edge of the woods ... #Quote by Lauren Groff
Thought Provoking quotes by Rasheed Ogunlaru
#38. I've no interest in being thought provoking. Who needs more thoughts. I'd rather go down as one who is thought disposing. #Quote by Rasheed Ogunlaru
Thought Provoking quotes by Ronnie Dunn
#39. Well, you can't throw heavy, analytical, thought-provoking songs at people 24/7. It's been my experience over the last 20 years that on a rare occasion, in a live setting, if you can slow people down to listen to two good ballads, then you're doing pretty good. Then throw a tempo at 'em. Then have fun. #Quote by Ronnie Dunn
Thought Provoking quotes by Jenny Hollowell
#40. Over the course of your life you are actually hundreds of different people. You are a different person at the coffee shop than you are at the bar, and a different person for the dry cleaner than you are for your boyfriend, and a different person at work than you are on vacation. You are nobody in particular. But once somebody finds you and loves you, you have to keep being the person that they love. You want thier love. You need to keep getting it even if it means pretending ... but no one loved her and so she could keep changing. #Quote by Jenny Hollowell
Thought Provoking quotes by John Green
#41. He was a dying man looking down on the surgeons trying to save him. #Quote by John Green
Thought Provoking quotes by Kevin Moccia
#42. That golden pin ball of a hare must be fresh dead! Thirty eight rabbits, seven squirrels, and one kitty cat D.O.A--MEEEEOOOWWW! Bippity bop-bop-bop bippity boo! I'm not no swineherd, my flocks a dead zoo! Won't crunch on no crumpets, I slurp bacon stew! Ain't dyin' in one life, "my brothaaaa", I'm livin' two! Yo! Everything melts like grilled cheese in the grease of Old Blue! Old Blue! Old Blue! Everything melts like grilled cheese in the grease of Old Blue!" The Old Blue the character raps of…is money. #Quote by Kevin Moccia

#43. Nothing important happens in life without a cost. #Quote by Jacqueline Novogratz
Thought Provoking quotes by Audrey Greathouse
#44. Why spend your whole life on the high seas looking for treasure,' Peter asked, talking to the clouds as he scaled a rope up what remained of the half-crumbled mast, 'when you could have a promised pay check in exchange for all the life you'd live between nine-and-five. #Quote by Audrey Greathouse
Thought Provoking quotes by Dabridgcourt Belchier
#45. Great minds think alike, but fools rarely differ. #Quote by Dabridgcourt Belchier
Thought Provoking quotes by Oscar Wilde
#46. I am the only person in the world I should like to know thoroughly. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Thought Provoking quotes by Zack Love
#47. But the fantasy kingdom and trappings of success soon lost their luster, as I discovered that the most prestigious and remunerative of my resume's way stations was also the most tedious and unfulfilling I had ever experienced. This paradox only made me more morose about modernity. Why was I going to watch my hairline recede in front of two-thousand-line spreadsheets staring at me from cold, glowing monitors? Why was everyone in my office apparently so happy to be spending so many hours there, when the things they really cared about - people, pets, pastimes - were all relegated to a few photographs on their desks? That seemed to be the formula: spend the best years of your life in an office with photos of what you really care about. #Quote by Zack Love
Thought Provoking quotes by Stella Gibbons
#48. While she lay there with these old worn thoughts coming obediently into her mind, called there by habit and the familiar quiet of early morning, she was aware that at the back of her mind there was another thought that was not at all stale, but so fresh that it was nearly a feeling, with all a feeling's delicious power to kill thought. #Quote by Stella Gibbons
Thought Provoking quotes by Seneca.
#49. It is uncertain where Death will await you;
there expect it everywhere. #Quote by Seneca.
Thought Provoking quotes by Jane Ridley
#50. 'Family Secrets' is thought provoking, well written, and remorselessly intelligent. #Quote by Jane Ridley
Thought Provoking quotes by Zoran Drvenkar
#51. As much as we strive towards the light, we still want to be embraced by the shadow. #Quote by Zoran Drvenkar
Thought Provoking quotes by Epictetus
#52. When a youth was giving himself airs in the Theatre and saying, 'I am wise, for I have conversed with many wise men,' Epictetus replied, 'I too have conversed with many rich men, yet I am not rich!'. #Quote by Epictetus
Thought Provoking quotes by Richard Dawkins
#53. Let us try to teach generosity and altruism, because we are born selfish. Let us understand what our own selfish genes are up to, because we may then at least have the chance to upset their designs, something that no other species has ever aspired to do. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Thought Provoking quotes by Bradley Bowman
#54. Life is going to beat you up, it wouldn't be fair if you didn't throw some punches back at it #Quote by Bradley Bowman
Thought Provoking quotes by Crystal Evans
#55. The people who believe themselves superior to you will reveal themselves in how they respond to criticism from you. An opinion of anyone carries as much weight as whatever value that person's social currency has. A poor man spouting words more thought provoking than plato would not be credit for his prudence for his social currency and not his wisdom decides the value of his life. #Quote by Crystal Evans
Thought Provoking quotes by Sharon M. Draper
#56. Maybe I'm not so different from everyone else after all. It's like somebody gave me a puzzle, but I don't have the box with the picture on it. So I don't know what the final thing is supposed to look like. I'm not even sure if I have all the pieces. #Quote by Sharon M. Draper
Thought Provoking quotes by Alyson Noel
#57. While we may judge things as good or bad, karma doesn't. It's a simple case of like gets like, the ultimate balancing act, nothing more, nothing less. And if you're deteremined to fix every situation you deem as bad, or difficult, or somehow unsavory, then you rob the person of their own chance to fix it, learn from it, or even grow from it. Some things, no matter how painful, happen for a reason. A reason you or I may not be able to grasp at first sight, not without knowing a person's entire life story - their cumulative past. And to just barge in and interfere, no matter how well-intentioned, would be akin to robbing them of their journey. Something that's better not done. #Quote by Alyson Noel
Thought Provoking quotes by Janice Thompson
#58. If you have to think about relaxing, are you really relaxing? #Quote by Janice Thompson
Thought Provoking quotes by Cheryl Waiters
#59. Being born is like coming into the middle of a movie. You have to find out what happened before you arrived and catch up to where you are now.
Everybody has a life, but the true gift lies in the ability to express that "life force" in a way that is thought provoking, entertaining, inspiring and educational to anyone who might see that life. This life then becomes more--it becomes art. #Quote by Cheryl Waiters
Thought Provoking quotes by Santosh Avvannavar
#60. Life would have been beautiful if there weren't any problems. #Quote by Santosh Avvannavar
Thought Provoking quotes by Tom Hiddleston
#61. Every villain is a hero in his own mind. #Quote by Tom Hiddleston
Thought Provoking quotes by Ariana Carruth
#62. When we start rating each other's lives and afflictions, we lose a bit of our humanity, compassion and perspective. #Quote by Ariana Carruth
Thought Provoking quotes by Charles Bukowski
#63. Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Thought Provoking quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#64. No book on this planet can give you the description of terms like religion, spirituality, divinity unless you discover it within the realm of your own mind. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Thought Provoking quotes by Eric R. Weinstein
#65. My four things I care about are truth, meaning, fitness and grace. [...] Sam [Harris] would like to make an argument that the better and more rational our thinking is, the more it can do everything that religion once did. [...] I think about my personal physics hero, Dirac – who was the guy who came up with the equation for the electron, less well-known than the Einstein equations but arguably even more beautiful...in order to predict that, he needed a positively-charged and a negatively-charged particle, and the only two known at the time were the electron and the proton to make up, let's say, a hydrogen atom. Well, the proton is quite a bit heavier than the electron and so he told the story that wasn't really true, where the proton was the anti-particle of the electron, and Heisenberg pointed out that that couldn't be because the masses are too far off and they have to be equal. Well, a short time later, the anti-electron -- the positron, that is -- was found, I guess by Anderson at Caltech in the early 30s and then an anti-proton was created some time later. So it turned out that the story had more meaning than the exact version of the story...so the story was sort of more true than the version of the story that was originally told. And I could tell you a similar story with Einstein, I could tell it to you with Darwin, who, you know, didn't fully understand the implications of his theory, as is evidenced by his screwing up a particular kind of orchid in his later work...no #Quote by Eric R. Weinstein

Thought Provoking quotes by Lauren Groff
#69. His heart ... responds to those once-upon-a-time people, anonymous in the shadows, the faith it took them to come together and rest and listen through the gruesomeness, their patience for the ever after, happy or not. #Quote by Lauren Groff
Thought Provoking quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#70. At first the brain weighs a potential partner, and if the partner fits our ancestral wish list, we get a spike in the release of sex chemicals that makes us dizzy with a rush of unavoidable infatuation. It's the first step down the primeval path of pair-bonding. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Thought Provoking quotes by Philip Pullman
#71. What work do I have to do then?" said Will, but went on at once, "No, on second thought, don't tell me. I shall decide what I do. If you say my work is fighting, or healing, or exploring, or whatever you might say, I'll always be thinking about it. And if I do end up doing that, I'll be resentful because it'll feel as if I didn't have a choice, and if I don't do it, I'll feel guilty because I should. Whatever I do, I will choose it, no one else. #Quote by Philip Pullman

Thought Provoking quotes by Richard Price
#76. But then something happened, Ray, something amazing. Something...

"That white cop sitting next to me? He took a long look at my mother when she came in, just like, absorbed her, and then without even turning to me, he just put his hand on my back, up between my neck and shoulder...

"And all he did was squeeze. Give me a little squeeze of sympathy, then rubbed that same spot with his palm for maybe two, three seconds, and that was it.

"But I swear to you, nobody, in my entire life up to that point had ever touched me with that kind of tenderness. I had never experienced a sympathetic hand like that, and Ray, it felt like lightning.

"I mean, the guy did it without thinking, I'm sure. And when dinnertime rolled around he had probably forgotten all about it. Forgot about me, too, for that matter... But I didn't forget.

"I didn't walk around thinking about it nonstop either, but something like seven years later when I was at community college? The recruiting officer for the PD came on campus for Career Day, and I didn't really like college all that much to begin with, so I took the test for the academy, scored high, quit school and never looked back.

"And usually when I tell people why I became a cop I say because it would keep Butchie and Antoine out of my life, and there's some truth in that.

"But I think the real reason was because that recruiting officer on campus that day reminded me, in some way, yo #Quote by Richard Price

Thought Provoking quotes by Julie Otsuka
#83. Because the man who stood there before us was not our father. He was somebody else, a stranger who had been sent back in our father's place. That's not him, we said to our mother, That's not him, but our mother no longer seemed to hear us ... "Did you ... she said. "Every day," he replied. Then he got down on his knees and he took us into his arms ... #Quote by Julie Otsuka

Thought Provoking quotes by Anne Bishop
#88. Do any of them realize that Simon Wolfgard is falling in love with Meg Corbyn? Monty wondered. Does Wolfgard understand his own response to the girl? What about Meg? How does she feel? What would the rest of the Others do if one of their kind did fall in love with a human? #Quote by Anne Bishop
Thought Provoking quotes by Binnie Kirshenbaum
#89. Jerusalem Maiden is a page-turning and thought-provoking novel. Extraordinary sensory detail vividly conjures another time and place; heroine Esther Kaminsky's poignant struggle transcends time and place. The ultimate revelation here: for many women, if not most, 2011 is no different than 1911, but triumph is nonetheless possible. #Quote by Binnie Kirshenbaum
Thought Provoking quotes by Jori Sams
#90. All my biggest failures began with the smallest compromises. #Quote by Jori Sams
Thought Provoking quotes by Jessiqua Wittman
#91. The way he was talking to me earlier ... makes me think he's starting to feel like God's the cosmic sadist again and he's the marionette."
"In other words, God's just torturing him for the kick?"
Thomas sighed and set his mostly untouched plate down. "Something like that."
"That's not a healthy outlook."
"He doesn't feel loved right now, so it's the natural one. #Quote by Jessiqua Wittman

Thought Provoking quotes by Justin Cronin

#97. Ever notice how 'What the hell' is always the right answer? #Quote by Marilyn Monroe
Thought Provoking quotes by Phillip DePoy
#98. No, I mean, this is a problem that most people have. A problem of the human condition. We get ahold of some kind of shorthand in understanding people, and we think it works, and we use it to assess, categorize, and then, very often, dismiss people. It's the basis for stereotyping, profiling, and several other very sorry words that end in i-n-g. #Quote by Phillip DePoy

Thought Provoking quotes by Zack Love

Thought Provoking quotes by Abraham Joshua Heschel
#107. We worry a great deal about the problem of church and state. Now what about the church and God? Sometimes there seems to be a greater separation between the church and God than between the church and state. #Quote by Abraham Joshua Heschel

Thought Provoking quotes by John Newberry
#115. It's like a lion at the door;
And when the door begins to crack,
It's like a stick across you back;
And when your back begins to smart,
It's like a penknife in your heart;
And when your heart begins to bleed,
You're dead, and dead, and dead, indeed. #Quote by John Newberry

Thought Provoking quotes by B.A. Gabrielle
#121. Watching TV helps me come up with a lot of new ideas. Psychological and mystery help me the most because of how thought provoking they are! #Quote by B.A. Gabrielle
Thought Provoking quotes by Tom Robbins
#122. On their sofas of spice and feathers, the concubines also slept fretfully. In those days the Earth was still flat, and people dreamed often of falling over edges. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Thought Provoking quotes by Tom Robbins
#123. Perhaps the most terrible (or wonderful) thing that can happen to an imaginative youth, aside from the curse (or blessing) of imagination itself, is to be exposed without preparation to the life outside his or her own sphere - the sudden revelation that there is a there out there. #Quote by Tom Robbins

#125. Writers don't give prescriptions. They give headaches! #Quote by Chinua Achebe
Thought Provoking quotes by Yann Martel
#126. As for fame, fame felt like nothing. Fame was not a sensation like love or hunger or loneliness, welling from within and invisible to the outside eye. It was rather entirely external, coming from the minds of others. It existed in the way people looked at him or behaved towards him. In that, being famous was no different from being gay, or Jewish, or from a visible minority: you are who you are, and then people project onto you some notion they have. #Quote by Yann Martel
Thought Provoking quotes by L.R. Knost
#127. Read thought-provoking books. Give long hugs. Grow your own vegetables. Help a neighbor grow theirs. Grind your own coffee. Take a walk in the sunshine. Talk to strangers. Ask questions. Look deeply into people's eyes. Listen. Listen some more. Go somewhere alone. Listen to your own soul. Make something beautiful. Make something messy. Write a letter. Write a poem. Go to the park. Play with your children. Ask them questions. Listen. Listen some more. Make your life beautiful. Plant flowers. Chase dreams. Smile. Cry. Laugh. Hope. Try. Fail. Try again. And again.
Peace and happiness come from you, not to you. Don't seek them. Create them.
And then help others to do the same.
You get one life. Live it well. #Quote by L.R. Knost
Thought Provoking quotes by George Lois
#128. You don't create a magazine for your readers. You don't take a poll, you know, like the politicians do, and find out what they're thinking and what they want ... You're supposed to be telling people what the hell you think is exciting and dynamic and thought-provoking, and do it - and do it your way. #Quote by George Lois
Thought Provoking quotes by Paul Simon
#129. People talking without speaking,/ People listening without hearing ... Sounds of Silence. #Quote by Paul Simon
Thought Provoking quotes by Donna Mull
#130. I have watched the tears of frustration of a stroke victim or the autistic child who struggles to communicate a need or thought, but no one understands. Eventually, the soul grows quiet and gives up. At every stage of life, and in every circumstance, we search for someone who understands what we are going through. #Quote by Donna Mull
Thought Provoking quotes by Cordelia Fine
#131. The tape measures and weighing scales of the Victorian brain scientists have been supplanted by powerful neuroimaging technologies, but there is still a lesson to be learned from historical examples such as these. State-of-the-art brain scanners offer us unprecedented information about the structure and working of the brain. But don't forget that, once, wrapping a tape measure around the head was considered modern and sophisticated, and it's important not to fall into the same old traps. As we'll see in later chapters, although certain popular commentators make it seem effortlessly easy, the sheer complexity of the brain makes interpreting and understanding the meaning of any sex differences we find in the brain a very difficult task. But the first, and perhaps surprising, issue in sex differences research is that of knowing which differences are real and which, like the intially promising cephalic index, are flukes or spurious. #Quote by Cordelia Fine
Thought Provoking quotes by David F. Swensen
#132. Jack Bogle's passionate cry of Enough! contains a thought-provoking litany of life lessons regarding our individual roles in commerce and society. Employing a seamless mix of personal anecdotes, hard evidence and all-too-often-underrated subjective admonitions, Bogle challenges each of us to aspire to become better members of our families, our professions and our communities. Rarely do so few pages provoke so much thought. Read this book. #Quote by David F. Swensen
Thought Provoking quotes by Noah Hawley
#133. There are things in this world that no human being should be able to endure. We should die of heartbreak, but we do not. Instead, we are forced to survive, to bear witness. #Quote by Noah Hawley
Thought Provoking quotes by Annette Janic
#134. WAR CHILD is the true story of Magdalena (Leni) Janic whose name appears on The Welcome Wall at Sydney's Darling Harbour. The story spans 100 years starting in pre WWII Nazi Germany and ends in the suburbs of Adelaide. It's a window into what life was like for a young illegitimate German girl growing up in poverty, coping with ostracism, bullying, abuse and dispossession as society was falling down around her and she becomes a refugee. But it's also a story of a woman's unconditional love for her family, the sacrifices she made and secrets she kept to protect them. Her ultimate secret was only revealed in a bizarre twist after her death and much to her daughter's (and author) surprise involved her. A memorable tear-jerker! A sad cruel story told with so much love. #Quote by Annette Janic
Thought Provoking quotes by Anne-Marie Slaughter
#135. What I'm suggesting is we are going to look back, and we're going to see what happened in Syria, and we're going to see the larger destabilization of the Middle East, the rise of extremism, and we're going to wonder ... Why didn't we at least try to force a political solution - at an acceptable cost to us, because no one is saying we should send in ground troops - and if we did it would be worse than doing nothing ... If we do not act, we are going to look back and wonder why we didn't. #Quote by Anne-Marie Slaughter
Thought Provoking quotes by Katherine Paterson
#136. I just gave up trying to be a Christian ... Let's face it, I ain't got the knack for holiness. Besides, I didn't have the slightest little desire to join the likes of Reverend Pelham at the dinner table for fourteen minutes, much less at the banquet table of Heaven eternally. Eternity is a mighty long time to be stuck with people who judge every word you say and think and condemn most of what you do. It struck me as pretty miserable company. And if Reverend Pelham was the kind of company God preferred to keep, well, I just hoped they'd be happy together. #Quote by Katherine Paterson
Thought Provoking quotes by Jodi Picoult
#137. There's a word we learned in social studies: schadenfreude. It's when you enjoy watching someone else suffer. The real question though, is why? I think part of it is self preservation. And part of it is because a group always feels more like a group when it's banded together against an enemy. It doesn't matter if that enemy has never done anything to hurt you-you just have to pretend you hate someone even more than you hate yourself. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Thought Provoking quotes by Kay Ryan
#138. BAIT GOAT
There is a distance where magnets pull, we feel, having held them back. Likewise there is a distance where words attract. Set one out like a bait goat and wait and seven others will approach. But watch out: roving packs can pull your word away. You find your stake yanked and some rough bunch to thank. #Quote by Kay Ryan
Thought Provoking quotes by Steve Pavlina
#139. "Stop asking "What should I do now?" That question only brings up what others expect of you. Free people don't have shoulds. They have choices." #Quote by Steve Pavlina
Thought Provoking quotes by Nour Zikra
#140. What life is this? Living in a world of hatred and lies, breathing the same air the dead breathed once, knowing we will wake up one day and find ourselves gone from time and space, and yet we still breathe the air without trembling from the thought. #Quote by Nour Zikra
Thought Provoking quotes by Ruth Ozeki

Thought Provoking quotes by Lienner Bankole
#143. Life can be so beautiful and wickedly cruel all at the same time. For it allows us to see what it is we want to see, before the truth comes along and smacks us hard in the face with a sledgehammer. #Quote by Lienner Bankole
Thought Provoking quotes by Tarun Sharma
#144. Time is the single most important resource that we have. Every single minute we lose is never coming back. #Quote by Tarun Sharma
Thought Provoking quotes by Fabrizio Paterlini
#145. Why are we so afraid to die? Are we concerned about the reckoning we may have to face on the other side? Or does the thought of our nonexistence terrify us? Perhaps neither. Perhaps what we fear most is no longer being able to do the things we love. #Quote by Fabrizio Paterlini
Thought Provoking quotes by Chinua Achebe
#146. When suffering knocks at your door and you say there is no seat for him, he tells you not to worry because he has brought his own stool. #Quote by Chinua Achebe
Thought Provoking quotes by Ian McEwan
#147. People sometimes forget how to be happy due to a failure to grasp the simple truth that other people are as real as you. And only in a story could you enter these different minds and show how they had an equal footing. That was the only moral a story must have. #Quote by Ian McEwan
Thought Provoking quotes by William Goldman
#148. How can the removal of beauty from a world so lacking in beauty be anything but tragic? #Quote by William Goldman
Thought Provoking quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#149. Our entire neurobiology acts as a giant input-output system, that receives information from the outside world, processes that information and makes a person react accordingly. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Thought Provoking quotes by Francis Chan
#150. You've got to do some work now. Make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue. Virtue is about moral excellence. #Quote by Francis Chan
Thought Provoking quotes by Maryrose Wood
#151. But was that not the task you set me? To defend the helpless against the strong?" "Indeed it was Master Weed. But who is to say who is helpless, and who is strong?" ... "If you seek the power to alter fate, you must also bear responsibility for the consequences. For you cannot change the fate of only one being; all fates are intertwined." "I performed the task," I protest. "I did what you bid me do." "You defended the weak from the strong." Larkspur speaks as if from far away. "But who will defend these poor weak infants against you!? #Quote by Maryrose Wood
Thought Provoking quotes by Paul Scheuring
#152. Before I even put pen to paper, in any sense, I'm like, "What's the coolest MacGuffin you can come up with? What are the last frames of this series?" The secret that's behind this entire thing is to be as evocative, original, thought-provoking and timely. #Quote by Paul Scheuring

Thought Provoking quotes by Sanchita Pandey
#160. Prayer also forms a type of nutrition for self confidence and keeps you free from worry. It connects you with the main Source of positive energy (Almighty) and recharges you throughout the day. It elevates your plain of thoughts and indirectly guides you to think fruitful and useful thoughts. #Quote by Sanchita Pandey

Thought Provoking quotes by Xi Chuan
#164. Many people pretend to be in thought, proving thought to be a beautiful thing.
But the bald man doesn't need a comb, the tiger doesn't need weapons, the fool doesn't need thought. The person with no needs is practically a sage, but the sage also needs to count the rivers across the iron bridge to pass the time. This is the difference between the sage and the fool. #Quote by Xi Chuan
Thought Provoking quotes by Jacqueline Novogratz
#165. There are probably no more market-oriented individuals on the planet, than low income people. #Quote by Jacqueline Novogratz
Thought Provoking quotes by Karl Jacoby
#166. Given the obstacles to merging these fragile and diverse forms of storytelling into a single tale, it is, paradoxically, by venturing in the opposite direction -- by listening for the silences between accounts; by discovering what each genre of recordkeeping cannot tell us -- that we can capture most fully the human struggle to understand our elusive past. What this past asks of us in return is a willingness to recount all our stories -- our darkest tales as well as our most inspiring ones -- and to ponder those stories that violence has silenced forever. For until we recognize our shared capacity for inhumanity, how can we ever hope to tell stories of our mutual humanity? #Quote by Karl Jacoby
Thought Provoking quotes by Shay Dawkins
#167. You either WIN or you LEARN. Either way, you WIN! #Quote by Shay Dawkins
Thought Provoking quotes by Charlotte Rogan
#168. When we are babies ... we need an authoritative figure to guide and take care of us. We ask no questions about that authority and imagine that the small circumference of family life is the limit of the universe ... As we mature, our horizon expands and we begin to question. This continues until we either throw over our creators
our parents
for good and take their place as the creative force in our lives or find replacements for them because the terror and responsibility are too great. People go one way or the other, and this accounts for all of the great personal and political divides throughout history. #Quote by Charlotte Rogan
Thought Provoking quotes by Bainbridge Island Review
#169. Taking inspiration from her own experiences as a wife, mother, principal and teacher, Ellick creates a realistic and thought-provoking modern scenario for readers to ponder, based on a well-documented historic trend. #Quote by Bainbridge Island Review
Thought Provoking quotes by Ana Claudia Antunes

Thought Provoking quotes by Jean-Paul Sartre
#172. Words are loaded pistols. #Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre
Thought Provoking quotes by Steven Pinker
#173. Challenge a person's beliefs, and you challenge his dignity, standing, and power. And when those beliefs are based on nothing but faith, they are chronically fragile. No one gets upset about the belief that rocks fall down as opposed to up, because all sane people can see it with their own eyes. Not so for the belief that babies are born with original sin or that God exists in three persons or that Ali is the second-most divinely inspired man after Muhammad. When people organize their lives around these beliefs, and then learn of other people who seem to be doing just fine without them
or worse, who credibly rebut them
they are in danger of looking like fools. Since one cannot defend a belief based on faith by persuading skeptics it is true, the faithful are apt to react to unbelief with rage, and may try to eliminate that affront to everything that makes their lives meaningful. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Thought Provoking quotes by Reid Scott

Thought Provoking quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#178. And yet, now that years have passed, I recall it and wonder that it could distress me so much. It will be the same thing, too, with this trouble. Time will go by and I shall not mind about this either. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Thought Provoking quotes by George R R Martin
#179. It's not," Mormont told him. "Gods save us, boy, you're not blind and you're not stupid. When dead men come hunting in the night, do you think it matters who sits the Iron Throne? #Quote by George R R Martin
Thought Provoking quotes by J. Raymond
#180. She persisted when I resisted. And thank God for that. Because the number of storms I needed to go through before appreciating the way the wind whipped through her hair was one to many. Now, I'd move mountains to make her mine. Rain or shine. #Quote by J. Raymond

#181. Be patient with everyone you meet, for you may never know whether your words were the last they ever heard. #Quote by L.J. Kane
Thought Provoking quotes by Roselynn Cannes
#182. Do you not know? Dolls are nothing until someone decides to pick them up and use them. During that time they are whatever they are expected to be. Whatever is commanded of them. You say I am not a doll, but like everyone else that is exactly what you want me to be. A lovely toy you may amuse yourself with... But remember, General, that when playtime is over and the doll has been returned to her shelf, the pretty shell you see? That is what she really is. Everything else is pretend. #Quote by Roselynn Cannes
Thought Provoking quotes by Rebecca McKinsey
#183. One thing you have to realize from now on is that it doesn't matter if this is a dream or not. Survival depends on what you do, not what you think. #Quote by Rebecca McKinsey
Thought Provoking quotes by Lewis Mumford
#184. Each person is a temporary focus of forces, vitalities, and values that carry back to an immemorial past and that reach forward into an unthinkable future. #Quote by Lewis Mumford
Thought Provoking quotes by Booker T. Mattison
#185. Hakeem: A wise man once said that suffering produces perseverance, character; and character, hope.
Andre: Since when did spouting masochism make one wise? And the sacraments of a bitter existence? Who deemed that a vaunted prize? Nihilistic philosophy only births more pain. It's fruitless to espouse folly, repackage it as wisdom, and spew it in a wise man's name. #Quote by Booker T. Mattison
Thought Provoking quotes by Charlotte Rogan
#186. I wondered if all a person could hope for was illusion and luck, for I was forced to conclude that the world was fundamentally and appallingly dangerous. It is a lesson I will never forget. #Quote by Charlotte Rogan
Thought Provoking quotes by Brandon Shire
#187. The desperate resilience,the annoyed flamboyance;his personable passivity and his phobic aggressiveness; all trapped in the clever wrinkles of his fingers, the hard unsociable cast of his knuckles, the safe hopelessness of the pads. #Quote by Brandon Shire
Thought Provoking quotes by Mark Cantrell
#188. AND where did the books go when the world turned against them? When the flames of wrath blackened their pages and erased the words, they fled to find solace and redemption in the dark places of the world.
"They were exiled into darkness so their own light might one day return to illuminate the world. They went underground, literally and metaphorically, so that their haven became the hidden places far beneath the feet of their persecutors.
"Thus was born the Incunabula: it was forged by fire and persecution, to preserve and protect until the book might rise, Phoenix-like, from the ashes of demise. #Quote by Mark Cantrell

Thought Provoking quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#194. Here was a new generation, shouting the old cries, learning the old creeds, through a revery of long days and nights; destined finally to go out into that dirty gray turmoil to follow love and pride; a new generation dedicated more than the last to the fear of poverty and the worship of success; grown up to find all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken ... #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald

Thought Provoking quotes by Brad Bird

Thought Provoking quotes by Michael J. Collins
#198. It was the first time I had ever seen someone die, and it wasn't what I expected ... I stood there waiting for something momentous to happen, for someone to say something profound, but there was nothing ... I still had the childish notion that since my life was so important, all lives were so important. Since my death would be so cataclysmic, all deaths would be so cataclysmic. #Quote by Michael J. Collins

#200. Then sense. Use your sense. Not all of us are born for greatness, but all of us have sense. Make use of it. Think. Think long and well. #Quote by Richard Llewellyn
Thought Provoking quotes by Amy Harmon
#201. When the ancient Romans would conquer a new place or a new people, they would leave the language and the customs in tact – they would even let the conquered people rule themselves in most cases, appointing a governor to maintain a foothold in the region." Wilson leaned against the whiteboard as he spoke, his posture relaxed, his hands clasped loosely."This was part of what made Rome so successful. They didn't try to make everyone Romans in the process of conquering them. When I went to Africa with the Peace Corp, a woman who worked with the Corp said something to me that I have often thought about since. She told me 'Africa is not going to adapt to you. You are going to have to adapt to Africa.' That is true of wherever you go, whether it's school or whether it's in the broader world. #Quote by Amy Harmon
Thought Provoking quotes by Jeremy Stoppelman
#202. As a kid, I harbored this fantasy of starting a company. I looked at the entrepreneur column in Forbes. I looked at it every month and thought, 'I want to be that guy.' #Quote by Jeremy Stoppelman
Thought Provoking quotes by Steve Martin
#203. I thought 'Borat' was a breakthrough comedy, because it was really funny. It wasn't some studio-produced script with 14 writers. #Quote by Steve Martin
Thought Provoking quotes by Mary Roberts Rinehart
#204. She had the theory of youth about love, that it was a violent thing, tempestuous and passionate. She thought that love demanded, not knowing that love gives first, and then asks. #Quote by Mary Roberts Rinehart
Thought Provoking quotes by Jeff Lindsay
#205. So I finished my coffee, stood up, and went down the hall to the little room that Rita calls Dexter's Study. I sat and fired up my laptop, and as it started up I closed my eyes, took a deep breath, and tried to get back in touch with my Inner Tiger. Almost immediately I felt it stretch and purr and rise up to rub against my hand. Nice kitty, I thought with gratitude, and it showed me its fangs in a happily wicked smile. I smiled back, opened my eyes, and we went to work. First #Quote by Jeff Lindsay
Thought Provoking quotes by Kazuo Ishiguro
#206. I was a little concerned that a lot of people thought I wrote Merchant Ivory movies. I also thought if I was ever going to write something strange and difficult, that was the time. #Quote by Kazuo Ishiguro
Thought Provoking quotes by Frederick Lenz
#207. There is this school of thought that says the usage of all mystical and occult powers is bad. I find that thought is usually propounded by people who don't have any powers. It's kind of a sour grapes attitude. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Thought Provoking quotes by Landon Y. Jones
#208. American natives were thought to be a simple, malleable people who, once they came to understand the benefits of European faith and civilization, would embrace them. #Quote by Landon Y. Jones
Thought Provoking quotes by Glenn Beck

Thought Provoking quotes by Chinua Achebe
#212. The Commissioner went away, taking three or four of the soldiers with him. In the many years in which he had toiled to bring civilization to different parts of Africa he had learned a number of things. One of them was that a District Commissioner must never attend to such undignified details s cutting a hanged man from a tree. Such attention would give the natives a poor opinion of him. In the book which he planned to write he would stress that point. As he walked back to the court he thought about that book. Every day brought him some new material. The story of the man who had killed a messenger and hanged himself would make interesting reading. One could almost write a whole chapter ob him. Perhaps not a whole chapter but a reasonable paragraph, at any rate. There was so much else to include, and one must be firm in cutting details. He had already chosen the title of the book, after much thought: The Pacification of the Primitive Tribes of the Lower Niger. #Quote by Chinua Achebe
Thought Provoking quotes by Adrian Tomine
#213. IT'S COLD WATER IN THE FACE TO REALIZE YOU'RE NOT NEARLY AS SPECIAL AND AS UNUSUAL AS YOU MIGHT HAVE THOUGHT WHEN YOU WERE AN ALIENATED TEENAGER. #Quote by Adrian Tomine
Thought Provoking quotes by Kathleen Kent
#214. Can you keep a secret, Sarah?" she asked. I nodded, remembering all our secrets shared together in her mother's house, and she said, her breath hot in my ear, "You cannot harvest the corn until you go into the corn."

I awoke with tears on my face, my hands clutching at the ribs around my heart. I had for more than forty years kept the past behind an impenetrable wall of my own devising. I thought that to move beyond this wall and revisit the past would scorch my reason and make me mad. But then, as I lay sweating in bed, restless and prickly, it came to me that to harvest a field of corn one does not wade into the dark middle of things and cut the stalks from the inside out. It is best done starting with the outside ears and working inward, stalk by stalk, keeping the light of the sun always at one's back so that its rays can illuminate each ear of corn, be it whole and sweet or black and blighted. And in this way does one make a meal that feeds a starving body back to wholeness. (183) #Quote by Kathleen Kent
Thought Provoking quotes by Lora Leigh
#215. She looked around the room, glanced over him and Micah waited.
Her Gaze passed him, then again. On the third pass she lingered as she continued to watch her, allowing his gaze to memorize those features just before her eyes met his.
A jolt od power flashed through him. Her ligth blue eyes flickered with interest, fear, then interest again, as though she wasn't certain which she should feel.
He let his gaze continue to hers, let his mind reach out to her, soothe her, ease her. He used his eyes rather than his expression to calm the fear that he knew he would be rising within her.
Micah knew the power of a look. When two people touched from across a distance, that touch could be frightening, wary, or a stroke of gentleness. He stroked her gently. He never let his eyes dip below her chin; rather, he let himself take in every nuance of expression, every shift of each facial motion, the flicker of her lashes, the shadows in her eyes, the tension in her small body.
She was like a little bird ready to fly. Poised at the edge of her seat.her body stiff and prepared to run.
Easy, little bird, he thought, letting his thoughts touch his gaze. There is no pain here; there is no fear. #Quote by Lora Leigh
Thought Provoking quotes by David Malouf
#216. Words are powerful. They too can be the agents of what is new, of what is conceivable and can be thought and let loose upon the world. #Quote by David Malouf
Thought Provoking quotes by Wolf
#217. Don't look so scared. Maybe there is happy endings even for people who don't believe in them. I want you to know something, I've never loved anybody this way. Never looked at a woman and thought: if civilization fails, if the world ends, I will still understand what God meant if I'm with her.

#Quote by Wolf
Thought Provoking quotes by Deepak Chopra
#218. Although we think that we think, most of the time we are being thought by the collective mind, the hypnosis of conditioning. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Thought Provoking quotes by Marcel Proust
#219. Disconsolate, she lowered her head, and her eyes fell upon her bodice, upon the even more languishing eyes of the wilted blossoms, which seemed ready to weep under their withered eyelids. The thought of the brevity of her unconscious dream about him, of the brevity of their happiness if ever it materialized, was associated for her with the sadness of those flowers, which, before dying, languished on the heart that they had felt beating with her first love, her first humiliation, and her first sorrow. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Thought Provoking quotes by Lisa Shearin
#220. My family's big on denial. And if we denied something long enough, we thought it'd go away. I know that's not how it works, but we're in denial about that, too. #Quote by Lisa Shearin
Thought Provoking quotes by John Wayne
#221. Everybody that I was in school with had an uncle or father in the law, and I started to realize that I was going to end up writing briefs for about ten years for these fellows who I thought I was smarter than. And I was kind of losing my feeling for that. #Quote by John Wayne
Thought Provoking quotes by Mariana Zapata
#222. Why are you making that face?" he asked suddenly.

I blinked up at him, caught off guard. I raised my eyebrows, trying to play dumb. "What face?"

It didn't work.

With a fork hanging out of his mouth, he narrowed his dark eyes just the slightest bit. "That one." He gestured toward me with his chin.

I shrugged in an 'I don't know what you're talking about' expression.

"Is there something you want to say?"

There were a hundred things I wanted to tell him on a regular basis, but I knew him too well. He didn't really care if there was something I wanted to say or not. He didn't care if my opinion was different from his or if I thought he should do something differently. He was just reminding me who the boss was.

AKA not me.

Asswipe.

"Me?" I blinked. "Nope."

He gave me a lazy glare before his eyes lowered to focus on the hand I had hidden on the other side of the kitchen island. "Then quit flipping me off. I'm not changing my mind about the signing," he said in a deceptively casual voice.

I pressed my lips together as I dropped my hand. He was a goddamn witch. I swear on my life, he was a freaking witch. A wizard. An oracle. A person with a third eye. Every single time I had ever flipped him off, he'd been aware of it. I didn't think I was that obvious about it either. #Quote by Mariana Zapata
Thought Provoking quotes by Antal Szerb
#223. I have to tell you about these things from the past, because they are so important. The really important things usually lie in the distant past. And until you know about them, if you'll forgive my saying so, you will always to some extent a mere newcomer in my life.

When I was at High School my favourite pastime was walking. Or rather, loitering. If we are talking about my adolescence, it's the more accurate word. Systematically, one by one, I explored all the districts of Pest. I relished the special atmosphere of every quarter and every street. Even now I can still find the same delight in houses that I did then. In this respect I've never grown up. Houses have so much to say to me. For me, they are what Nature used to be to the poets - or rather, what the poets thought of as Nature.

But best of all I loved the Castle Hill District of Buda. I never tired of its ancient streets. Even in those days old things attracted me more than new ones. For me the deepest truth was found only in things suffused with the lives of many generations, which hold the past as permanently as mason Kelemen's wife buried in the high tower of Deva. #Quote by Antal Szerb
Thought Provoking quotes by Sarah Winman
#224. Pity you if you thought it was overrated. I would've fucking revelled in it. #Quote by Sarah Winman
Thought Provoking quotes by Henry Cloud
#225. In a person not dominated by envy, the thought process goes like this: I see something out there I would like to have; I don't like my current situation. This is my problem. What am I going to do to get from point a to point b? I'd better pray, listen to God, evaluate what is keeping me from getting there, and find out what I need to do to reach that goal. #Quote by Henry Cloud
Thought Provoking quotes by Jessie J.
#226. I have always been the first on the dance floor. Before fame, people thought it made me a good laugh; now, people point and call me an attention seeker! I'm very aware of the way people can view me, but I'm very aware that I have to just enjoy my life. #Quote by Jessie J.
Thought Provoking quotes by Sam Starbuck
#227. He looked down at the desk, at his notebook resting there with the pen on top. He had never thought of engineering as a way to escape the world; after all, engineers didn't build stories or other worlds.
Or, well, perhaps they did; perhaps, late at night, huddled around the boiler with the driver and the conductor, they told their own stories. Famous robberies in the west, derailments, perhaps even ghost trains or passengers long dead who still prowled the carriages.
Either way, Jack had turned his profession into his escape, which Ellis could respect. #Quote by Sam Starbuck
Thought Provoking quotes by Chris O'Dowd
#228. Comedy writing is taking the brief thought and going with it. #Quote by Chris O'Dowd
Thought Provoking quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#229. You can't keep your feet on the ground, hoping to enjoy the fruits of your labour. The fruits are on the top; keep climbing till you pluck them with your hands! #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Thought Provoking quotes by Nick Hornby
#230. There was an awful lot to be said for familiarity, if you thought about it. It was an extremely underrated virtue, ignorable until the very moment that you were in danger of losing whatever or whoever it was that was familiar. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Thought Provoking quotes by Tom Sweterlitsch
#231. It used to be thought that hell was a lack of God, but hell is a lack of death. #Quote by Tom Sweterlitsch
Thought Provoking quotes by Scott Lynch
#232. Better to say nothing and be thought a fool, than to interfere in the business of wizards and remove all doubt. #Quote by Scott Lynch
Thought Provoking quotes by Alec Guinness
#233. A refurbished Star Wars is on somewhere or everywhere. I have no intention of revisiting any galaxy. I shrivel inside each time it is mentioned. Twenty years ago, when the film was first shown, it had a freshness, also a sense of moral good and fun. Then I began to be uneasy at the influence it might be having. The first bad penny dropped in San Francisco when a sweet-faced boy of twelve told me proudly that he had seen Star Wars over a hundred times. His elegant mother nodded with approval. Looking into the boy's eyes I thought I detected little star-shells of madness beginning to form and I guessed that one day they would explode.

'I would love you to do something for me,' I said.

'Anything! Anything!' the boy said rapturously.

'You won't like what I'm going to ask you to do,' I said.

'Anything, sir, anything!'

'Well,' I said, 'do you think you could promise never to see Star Wars again?'

He burst into tears. His mother drew herself up to an immense height. 'What a dreadful thing to say to a child!' she barked, and dragged the poor kid away. Maybe she was right but I just hope the lad, now in his thirties, is not living in a fantasy world of secondhand, childish banalities. #Quote by Alec Guinness
Thought Provoking quotes by Michael Shaara
#234. They rode for a while in silence, a tiny island in the smoky stream of marching men. Then Lee said slowly, in a strange, soft, slow tone of voice, "Soldiering has one great trap."
Longstreet turned to see his face. Lee was riding slowly ahead, without expression. He spoke in that same slow voice. "To be a good soldier you must love the army. But to be a good officer you must be willing to order the death of the thing you love. This is...a very hard thing to do. No other profession requires it. That is one reason why there are so very few good officers. Although there are many good men."
Lee rarely lectured. Longstreet sensed a message beyond it. He waited. Lee said, "We don't fear our own deaths, you and I." He smiled slightly, then glanced away. "We protect ourselves out of military necessity, not do not protect yourself enough and must give thought to it. I need you. But the point is, we are afraid to die. We are prepared for our own deaths, and for the deaths of comrades. We learn that at the Point. But I have seen this happen: we are not prepared for as many deaths as we have to face, inevitably as the war goes on. There comes a time..."
He paused. He had been gazing straight ahead, away from Longstreet. Now, black-eyed, he turned back, glanced once quickly into Longstreet's eyes, then looked away.
"We are never prepared for so many to die. So you understand? No one is. We expect some chosen few. We expect an occasional empty chair, a toast to d #Quote by Michael Shaara
Thought Provoking quotes by Mitch Albom
#235. I thought about how often this was needed in everyday life. How we feel lonely, sometimes to the point of tears, but we don't let those tears come because we are not supposed to cry. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Thought Provoking quotes by Anya
#236. I miss her some nights,
I still think of her, more than I thought I would.
I hate her, but there will always be a part of me that loves her. A part of me that will remember, the little things. The few times she wasn't completely out of her mind. She cared so much, I know that. She tried her best I know that too. The woman who brought me into this life may have ruined me, all of me, but I will remember the little things. #Quote by Anya
Thought Provoking quotes by Albert Einstein
#237. When a man, after long years of searching, chances upon a thought which discloses something of the beauty of this mysterious universe, he should not therefore be personally celebrated. He is already sufficiently paid by his experience of seeking and finding. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Thought Provoking quotes by S.G. Tallentyre
#238. I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. #Quote by S.G. Tallentyre
