Traits Traits Sims quotes by Washington Irving
#1. There is a certain artificial polish, a commonplace vivacity acquired by perpetually mingling in the beau monde; which, in the commerce of world, supplies the place of natural suavity and good-humour, but is purchased at the expense of all original and sterling traits of character. #Quote by Washington Irving
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Sheryl Sandberg
#2. Aggressive and hard-charging women violate unwritten rules about acceptable social conduct. Men are continually applauded for being ambitious and powerful and successful, but women who display these same traits often pay a social penalty. Female accomplishments come at a cost. #Quote by Sheryl Sandberg
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Janette Rallison
#3. I didn't bother to explain about the glitter in my hair. I figured they could think it was a family trait. We all glittered, just like the Cullens in Twilight. #Quote by Janette Rallison
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Aberjhani
#4. Within the universe of the extraordinary, those qualities we designate to human concepts of gender are often shared, exchanged, or even completely obliterated. Because of this mixture of traits, these twins called Genius and Madness often appear to be the same thing. They both have a tendency to blur the lines of what we call norms, or established reality. They both, when we study that grand tapestry known as history and modern-day society, tend to stand out in much bolder relief than other figures.
from Dancing with Madness, Dancing with Genius #Quote by Aberjhani
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Michael Callahan
#5. That's what novels are: They're amalgams of archetypes, collections of random traits one observes in other people through life, blended into fresh characters. #Quote by Michael Callahan
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Michael Austin
#6. Not everybody believes in the possibility of political persuasion. Many people see political positions as expressions of innate personality traits - hard-wired into us either by our genes or by an irreversible process of socialization. Why should we waste time trying to be persuasive when people never really change their minds? This is a reasonable concern.

The idea that persuasion doesn't work comes from a bad application of good science. A substantial body of research suggests that our political beliefs are shaped by more or less fixed psychological characteristics ... Research like this, however, tells us about the difficulty of conversion, not persuasion. These are not the same things. We too often misrepresent the task of political persuasion by thinking of the most strident partisan we have ever encountered and imagining what it would take to turn that person into an equally strident partisan for the other side. This sort of Paul-on-the-Road-to-Damascus conversion rarely happens in politics. Most people don't change their fundamental values, and if we expect them to, we are going to be very disappointed.

But we usually don't need people to change their fundamental values in order to convince them to adopt a particular position. The fact that people have fundamental values makes it possible to persuade them by appealing to those values. But we have to find values that we really share. #Quote by Michael Austin
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Muse
#7. A Coy Aversion

...a flutter
too shy
to be seen... #Quote by Muse
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Angie Morgan
#8. Leaders approach conflict with an eye for resolution. When handled effectively, successful confrontations raise team performance. To manage conflict effectively, you must begin by recognizing there are three sides to every story:
Yours / Theirs / The Truth #Quote by Angie Morgan
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Carl R. Rogers
#9. A person is a fluid process, not a fixed and static entity; a flowing river of change, not a block of solid material; a continually changing constellation of potentialities, not a fixed quantity of traits. #Quote by Carl R. Rogers
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Robin S. Sharma
#10. Within the covers of a single book are ideas that, if acted upon, have the power to rescript every part of your life. Few things are as smart as investing in becoming a better thinker and developing a stronger mind. Relentless learning is one of the main traits of an open and powerful person. #Quote by Robin S. Sharma
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Dave Matthes
#11. I fancy myself a writer. And writing, in its most eloquent manner, since time became a concept indoctrinated by true troglodytes, tickles my dong; it throttles my flume; it punts my epididymus to horizons fantastical.

And not just writing bullshit; a few seemingly overused words to describe the belched bark of a goddamn sequoia, but actually writing. Writing to me is not about thinking, it's not about personality traits or hell, even the conveyance of feelings. Writing is like breathing to me. I have to do it. I have to inhale it and exhale it, no matter what comes in and likewise what comes out. Traversing the slopes of the soul, scratching that all but intangible itch, I find solace in the abyss of my complacency. It‟s not for recognition, not for income or monetary satisfaction. None of that really matters to me. The only thing that matters to me is finding the way to transfer a thought to paper; a heartbeat to the surface; a blink and a gasp to submissively correspond with the outcry of tangible suspense. #Quote by Dave Matthes
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#12. But there was never any such thing as Stalinism. It was contrived by Khrushchev and his group in order to blame all the characteristic traits and principal defects of Communism on Stalin - it was a very effective move. But in reality Lenin had managed to give shape to all the main features before Stalin came to power. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Traits Traits Sims quotes by C. Sommerville
#13. In the years of the Roman Republic, before the Christian era, Roman education was meant to produce those character traits that would make the ideal family man. Children were taught primarily to be good to their families. To revere gods, one's parents, and the laws of the state were the primary lessons for Roman boys. Cicero described the goal of their child rearing as self- control, combined with dutiful affection to parents, and kindliness to kindred. #Quote by C. Sommerville
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#14. The partisan strife in which the people of the country are permitted to periodically engage does not tend to the development of ugly traits of character, but merely discloses those that preexist. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#15. Carlisle has a theory ... he believes that we all bring something of our strongest human traits with us into the next life, where they are intensified - like our minds, and our senses. #Quote by Stephenie Meyer
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#16. Each of us has our own unique traits, but we need them to fulfil our destiny #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#17. Foster had in common with every great religious leader of that planet two traits: he had an extremely magnetic personality, and sexually he did not fall near the human norm. On Earth great religious leaders were always either celibate or the antithesis. Foster was not celibate. (p.289) #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Traits Traits Sims quotes by David LaRochelle
#18. I quickly discovered three distinct traits about my tablemates:
They hit each other a lot.
They swore a lot.
They belched a lot. #Quote by David LaRochelle
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Graeme Simsion
#19. I was having trouble making sense of all that Rosie was saying, doubtless due to the effects of the alcohol and her perfume. However, she had given me an opportunity to keep the conversation on safe ground. The inheritance of common genetically influenced traits such as eye colour is more complex than is generally understood, and I was confident that I could speak on the topic for long enough to occupy the remainder of our journey. But I realised that this was a defensive action and impolite to Rosie who had risked considerable embarrassment and damage to her relationship with Stefan for my benefit. #Quote by Graeme Simsion
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#20. The kitchen clock is more convenient than sidereal time. We must use the popular category, as we do by the Linnaean classification, for convenience, and not as exact and final. Otherwise, we are presently confounded, when the best-settled traits of one race are claimed by some new ethnologist as precisely characteristic of the rival tribe. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Derek R. Audette
#21. In a world where God does not exist, any reasonable person must see that the propensity toward selfishness should be the most venerated of all human traits. From this it stands to reason that any man, knowing the total expanse of his existence to be finite, who does not devote every moment of his life to acts of pure selfishness, must be seen as nothing more than a fool. #Quote by Derek R. Audette
Traits Traits Sims quotes by L.E. Modesitt Jr.
#22. she stands before him as a collection of clashing traits - the face of a girl with eyes that have seen Hell, the figure of a virgin with the body posture of experience, a complexion that demands dark hair with golden. #Quote by L.E. Modesitt Jr.
Traits Traits Sims quotes by M.E. Thomas
#23. Failure to conform to social norms. I prefer to define my sociopathy as a set of traits that inform my personality but don't define me: I am generally free of entangling and irrational emotions, I am strategic and canny, I am intelligent and confident and charming, but I also struggle to react appropriately to other people's confusing and emotion-driven social cues. #Quote by M.E. Thomas
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Joseph Stephen
#24. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth." Psalm 127:4

Arrows in the wrong hands can cause a lot of destruction. Well-trained arrows, however, can save a nation. No arrow will change course mid-flight. I am not saying that a right environment guarantees our children's salvation. It most certainly does not. Children are born sinners. We do however, give them a great head start by helping them to curb passions and learn self-control and other godly traits. They must ultimately repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ for personal salvation, and they will still deal with sin as we all must. We do, however, prepare the soil for receiving the seed of God's word. Seed sown in good soil will bear much fruit. #Quote by Joseph Stephen
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Tracy Chevalier
#25. Yes, my boy; yes, my girl. The tension between contraries is what makes us ourselves. We have not just one, but the other too, mixing and clashing and sparking inside us. Not just light, but dark. Not just peace, but at war. Not just innocent, but experienced. #Quote by Tracy Chevalier
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Tom Peters
#26. Start by identifying the qualities or characteristics that make you distinctive from your competitors - or your colleagues. What have you done lately - this week - to make yourself stand out? What would your colleagues or your customers say is your greatest and clearest strength? Your most noteworthy (as in, worthy of note) personal trait? #Quote by Tom Peters
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#27. Parents are supposed to pass down physical traits to their children, but it's my belief that all sorts of other things get passed down, too: motifs, scenarios, even fates. #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Adora Svitak
#28. I am writing to make sure that kids don't lose very important traits like curiosity that can drive social change because oftentimes I think parents emphasise more on doing well in school, which is important, but perhaps that sometimes comes at the cost of a child's natural curiosity. #Quote by Adora Svitak
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Nicole DSettemi
#29. I always felt in a sort of, liquified state. If that makes sense? I think it's interesting because I grew up near such a renowned, gorgeous and enigmatic land mark. Is it possible that nature interferes with and/or conditions us? I think so. At the end of the day, we are organic, we are offspring from the earth, sophisticated bacteria, if you will. So, why wouldn't moods and traits, characteristics, emotions, habits, thought-patterns--why wouldn't all of that be affected by nature? Growing up near water, I sincerely believe, affected me in SOME way. #Quote by Nicole DSettemi
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Anais Nin
#30. I don't really want to become normal, average, standard. I want merely to gain in strength, in the courage to live out my life more fully, enjoy more, experience more. I want to develop even more original and more unconventional traits #Quote by Anais Nin
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Anonymous
#31. Stories, like living organisms, acquire and lose traits over time. #Quote by Anonymous
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Herman Melville
#32. For in their interflowing aggregate, those grand fresh-water seas of ours,--Erie, and Ontario, and Huron, and Superior, and Michigan,--possess an ocean-like expansiveness, with many of the ocean's noblest traits; with many of its rimmed varieties of races and climes. They contain round archipelagoes of romantic isles, even as the Polynesian water do; in large part, are shored by two great contrasting nations, as the Atlantic is; they furnish long maritime approaches to our numerous territorial colonies from the East, dotted all round their banks; here and there are frowned upon by batteries, and by the goat-like craggy guns of Mackinaw; they have heard the fleet thunderings of naval victories; at intervals, they have yield their beaches to wild barbarians, whose red painted faces flash from out their pelty wigwams; for leagues and leagues are flanked by ancient and unentered forests, where the gaunt pines stand like serried lines of kings in Gothic genealogies; those same woods harboring wild Afric beasts of prey, and silken creatures whose exported furs gives robes to Tartar Emperors; they mirror the paved capitals of Buffalo and Cleveland, as well as Winnebago villages; they float alike the full-rigged merchant ship, the armed cruiser of the State, the steamer, and the birch canoe; they are swept by Borean and dismasting blasts as direful as any that lash the salted wave; they know what shipwrecks are, for out of sight of land, however inland, they have drowned full many a #Quote by Herman Melville
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Pearl Zhu
#33. Fairness is one of the most significant traits in wisdom, the fairer you are, the wiser you become. #Quote by Pearl Zhu
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Gregor Mendel
#34. Those traits that pass into hybrid association entirely or almost entirely unchanged, thus themselves representing the traits of the hybrid, are termed dominating and those that become latent in the association, recessive. #Quote by Gregor Mendel
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Sheryl Sandberg
#35. Career progression often depends upon taking risks and advocating for oneself - traits that girls are discouraged from exhibiting. This may explain why girls' academic gains have not yet translated into significantly higher numbers of women in top jobs. #Quote by Sheryl Sandberg
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Glenn Haybittle
#36. Kindness is probably the most underrated human quality. We tend to dismiss it when we come across it and seek out more exciting character traits. But kindness is often a refined form of courage. It brings light and warmth into the world. You should always value kindness when you find it. #Quote by Glenn Haybittle
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Jane Lindskold
#37. Something else changed when querinalo changed. Our immortality began to become - it is difficult to explain. None of us began to age, nor did we lose our vitality. Rather it was as if what was resilient within us began to stiffen. Traits of character became not merely habits, but defining elements. I suppose for me that it was fortunate - or unfortunate, given my current situation as your prisoner - that one of my defining traits has always been curiosity. Curiosity is one of the seeds of creativity, so that remained to me as well, but many of my associates were less fortunate.
"Remember that Virim recruited us all because we shared a certain idealism. However, I fear that not much time needs to pass for idealism to become dogmatism. This was the case for many of my associates. They became dogmatic, but not regarding the same things."
Firekeeper wondered what dogs had to do with ideas, but thought she understood. Dogs, like wolves, were pack animals, but unlike wolves, dogs retained a juvenile desire to follow. So these spellcasters had been Virim's dogs, and when this stiffening happened, they had become even more doglike. It made sense in a way. #Quote by Jane Lindskold
Traits Traits Sims quotes by A.S.A Harrison
#38. Basic personality traits develop early in life and over time become inviolable, hardwired. Most people learn little from experience, rarely thinking of adjusting their behavior, see problems as emanating from those around them, and keep on doing what they do in spite of everything, for better or worse. #Quote by A.S.A Harrison
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#39. Love brings to light a lover's noble and hidden qualities-his rare and exceptional traits: it is thus liable to be deceptive of his normal qualities. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Jerram Barrs
#40. I regularly tell our seminary students that if I happen to visit the church in which one of them serves, I will not ask first, "Is this man a good preacher?" Rather, first of all I will ask the secretaries, office staff, janitors, and cleaners what it is like to work for this pastor. I will ask, "What kind of man is he? Is he a servant? Is he demanding and harsh, or his he patient, kind, and forbearing as a man in authority?" One of our graduates may preach great sermons, but if he is a pain to work for, then you know he will cause major problems in any congregation. Leaders in the church are required by Scripture to set an example in the areas of love, kindness, gentleness, patience, and forbearance before they are appointed to preach, teach, and rule. If we obediently require these attitudes and character traits of our leaders, what will our "new community" look like #Quote by Jerram Barrs
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Walter Lang
#41. In the beginning of the human race there was no genetic load which would cause undesirable traits such as appear in offspring of marriages between relatives today. #Quote by Walter Lang
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Julie Schumacher
#42. Fitger behaves like more of an ass than he actually is. #Quote by Julie Schumacher
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#43. Humans possess the ability to engage in both external observation and internal introspection. How much time they invest engaged in each activity is reflective of their values, which manifest themselves in behavior, personality formation, and influences the selection of narrative stories that they share with their brethren. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Barbara G. Walker
#44. Credulity as a character trait is encouraged in every child who grows up with religious training, which invariably insists on the virtue of blind faith and the sinfulness of doubting and questioning. #Quote by Barbara G. Walker
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Robert Plant
#45. I like to comprehend more or less everything around me - apart from the creation of my music. It's an obsessive character trait that's getting worse. I don't switch the light on and off 15 times before I leave the room yet, but something's going wrong. #Quote by Robert Plant
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Gary Wolf
#46. Our experience in fooling around with the genes of mice has taught us that many of the traits that interest us are not definite products of specific mutations but emergent phenomena arising from extremely complex interactions between genes, environment, and life experience. #Quote by Gary Wolf
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Aziz Ansari
#47. Initially, we are attracted to people by their physical appearance and traits we can quickly recognize. But the things that really make us fall for someone are their deeper, more unique qualities, and usually those only come out during sustained interactions. #Quote by Aziz Ansari
Traits Traits Sims quotes by Armando Lucas Correa
#48. This time she wasn't facing racial cleansing that aimed to create physical perfection, size and color to achieve purity. Now it was a cleansing of ideas. It was people's minds they were afraid of, not their physical traits. The doubts expressed by a crazy philosopher from her own country whom she used to read flitted through her mind: "Is man God's mistake, or God man's mistake? #Quote by Armando Lucas Correa
