Triggers quotes by Robert M. Sapolsky
#1. Testosterone has far less to do with aggression than most assume. Within the normal range, individual differences in testosterone levels don't predict who will be aggressive. Moreover, the more an organism has been aggressive, the less testosterone is needed for further aggression. When testosterone does play a role, it's facilitatory - testosterone does not 'invent' aggression. It makes us more sensitive to triggers of aggression. Also, rising testosterone levels foster aggression only during challenges to status. Finally, crucially, the rise in testosterone during a status challenge does not necessarily increase aggression; it increases whatever is needed to maintain status. In a world in which status is awarded for the best of our behaviors, testosterone would be the most prosocial hormone in existence. #Quote by Robert M. Sapolsky

#2. Imagination releases curiosity and sensitivity triggers creativity #Quote by Bukoye Micheal
Triggers quotes by Andrey Kapitsa
#3. The Kyoto theorists have put the cart before the horse. It is global warming that triggers higher levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, not the other way round. #Quote by Andrey Kapitsa
Triggers quotes by Pervez Musharraf
#4. Dr. A.Q. Khan's part is only enriching the uranium to weapons grade, ... He does not know about making the bomb, he does not know about the trigger mechanism, he does not know about the delivery system #Quote by Pervez Musharraf
Triggers quotes by Charles Duhigg
#5. Typically, people who exercise, start eating better and becoming more productive at work. They smoke less and show more patience with colleagues and family. They use their credit cards less frequently and say they feel less stressed. Exercise is a keystone habit that triggers widespread change. #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Triggers quotes by Elizabeth Emken
#6. The genetics of autism are real, but there are also environmental triggers. #Quote by Elizabeth Emken
Triggers quotes by Howie Mandel
#7. I have thoughts - obtrusive thoughts and rituals that have to - it's like a broken re - a skipping record. And if these thoughts or these triggers happen to me through maybe shaking a hand or just a thought or just - then I can't get past it and move on with my life. #Quote by Howie Mandel
Triggers quotes by Christine A. Courtois
#8. The act of consciously and purposefully paying attention to symptoms and their antecedents and consequences makes the symptoms more an objective target for thoughtful observation than an intolerable source of subjective anxiety, dysphoria, and frustration. In ACT, the act of accepting the symptoms as an expectable feature of a disorder or illness, has been shown to be associated with relief rather than increased distress (Hayes et al., 2006). From a traumatic stress perspective, any symptom can be reframed as an understandable, albeit unpleasant and difficult to cope with, reaction or survival skill (Ford, 2009b, 2009c). In this way, monitoring symptoms and their environmental or experiential/body state "triggers" can enhance client's willingness and ability to reflectively observe them without feeling overwhelmed, terrified, or powerless. This is not only beneficial for personal and life stabilization but is also essential to the successful processing of traumatic events and reactions that occur in the next phase of therapy (Ford & Russo, 2006). #Quote by Christine A. Courtois
Triggers quotes by Paul Meyer
#9. Enthusiasm is the way you trigger other people's emotions so they instinctively help and support you.. #Quote by Paul Meyer
Triggers quotes by K.J.  Ramsey
#10. All pain triggers a reminder, deeper than thought, buzzing through blood and bone, that we are fragile and finite. #Quote by K.J. Ramsey
Triggers quotes by J. D. Hayworth
#11. The American people likewise want to see enforcement first, no tricks, no triggers, no amnesty, enforcing existing laws and closing loopholes to reaffirm that our great Republic is, in fact, a nation of laws. #Quote by J. D. Hayworth
Triggers quotes by Charles Duhigg
#12. This process within our brains is a three-step loop. First, there is a cue, a trigger that tells your brain to go into automatic mode and which habit to use. Then there is the routine, which can be physical or mental or emotional. Finally, there is a reward, which helps your brain figure out if this particular loop is worth remembering for the future: THE HABIT LOOP #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Triggers quotes by Susan Ee
#13. The alarm bells shriek again, echoing off the walls. "The hell is that?" asks Tattoo. "And why does it keep going off?" "There's some crazy lady on the loose," says Doc. "Keeps propping open emergency exits. Triggers the alarm. Are you going to let me go?" Well, at least my mom must be doing okay. #Quote by Susan Ee
Triggers quotes by Jeane Manning
#14. Prototypes of inventions that use novel combinations of resonance, magnetism, states of matter, certain geometries or inward swirling motion to unlock the secrets of universal energy have already been built. They provide proof of new or rediscovered principles. In many variations of these inventions, a small input triggers a disproportionately large output of useable power."
"These energy converters don't violate any laws of physics if they simply tap into a previously unrecognized source of power - background space. A flow of energy from that source can continue day and night, whether or not the sun shines or the wind blows. #Quote by Jeane Manning
Triggers quotes by Beau Lotto
#15. This requires giving children the freedom to go, and the discipline and wisdom to know when to say stop, not because their transgression triggers one of your own fears, but because they are doing something that would actually harm them #Quote by Beau Lotto
Triggers quotes by Anonymous
#16. When you eat sugar, according to research by Bartley Hoebel of Princeton University, it triggers a response in the same part of the brain - known as the "reward center" - that is targeted by cocaine, alcohol, nicotine, and other addictive substances. #Quote by Anonymous
Triggers quotes by Euginia Herlihy
#17. The amazing feeling that triggers the fountain of words that flow in my belly. #Quote by Euginia Herlihy
Triggers quotes by Sonia Sotomayor
#18. There are things you may know in your heart for a long while without admitting them to conscious awareness, until, unexpectedly, something triggers an inescapable realization. #Quote by Sonia Sotomayor
Triggers quotes by Zachary Cole Smith
#19. One of the 12 steps is to admit that you're powerless, but I think that's bullshit. I think it's important to empower yourself by facing the stuff that triggers you. #Quote by Zachary Cole Smith
Triggers quotes by Jeff Walker
#20. At its heart, Product Launch Formula is made up of sequences, stories, and triggers. #Quote by Jeff Walker
Triggers quotes by G. Frank Lawlis
#21. Anger can serve a useful purpose if it is justified and directed appropriately. But when it's only a substitute for self-loathing and a justification for cruelty to others, the trigger in your brain can become horribly destructive and addicted to that emotion. It's like a tornado that blows away all of your pleasure and replaces it with emotional poison. #Quote by G. Frank Lawlis
Triggers quotes by A. Zavarelli
#22. This is the moment I realize that our traumas never really go away. They live inside of us, in the deepest darkest pits of our own tiny hells. Cocked and loaded, waiting for someone to come along and pull the trigger. #Quote by A. Zavarelli
Triggers quotes by Pete Walker
#23. Many psychologists use the term existential to describe the fact that all human beings are subject to painful events. These are the normal recurring afflictions that everyone suffers from time to time. Horrible world events, difficult choices, illnesses and periodic feelings go abject loneliness are common examples of existential pain. Existential calamities can be especially triggering for survivors, because we typically have so much family-of-origin calamity for them to trigger us into reliving. #Quote by Pete Walker
Triggers quotes by Ben Fountain
#24. The singing triggers a soft detonation at his core, molten parts of him are flying everywhere and his ears ring to the tune of blast harmonics that only he can hear, but what is "The Star Spangled Banner" if not a love song? #Quote by Ben Fountain
Triggers quotes by Dennis Ross
#25. You don't have any communication between the Israelis and the Iranians. You have all sorts of local triggers for conflict. Having countries act on a hair trigger - where they can't afford to be second to strike - the potential for a miscalculation or a nuclear war through inadvertence is simply too high. #Quote by Dennis Ross
Triggers quotes by Rick Strassman
#26. When our individual life force enters our fetal body, the moment in which we become truly human, it passes through the pineal and triggers the first primordial flood of DMT.
Later, at birth, the pineal releases more DMT.
As we die, the life-force leaves the body through the pineal gland, releasing another flood of this psychedelic spirit molecule. #Quote by Rick Strassman
Triggers quotes by Tracy Malone
#27. Stop letting yourself be turned inside out. Triggers can kill your soul over and over. Go no contact and break free. #Quote by Tracy Malone
Triggers quotes by Frank Zappa
#28. The NRA, with the fingers on the triggers when they kneel and pray. #Quote by Frank Zappa
Triggers quotes by Fiona Apple
#29. You fondle my trigger, then you blame my gun #Quote by Fiona Apple
Triggers quotes by Queen Latifah
#30. Musicals are good times. I live to do a musical, there's nothing like it, no experience like that in the movie business. You don't get to pull all those triggers at the same time doing anything else. Nothing pulls that from you. Dancing, acting and singing is like "Alright, I gotta fire on all cylinders right now" because that's what it requires. It's fun getting to exercise all those muscles. #Quote by Queen Latifah
Triggers quotes by Nanette Mathews
#31. When things are challenging, remember you are not the feelings and emotions. They are just a reaction to the situation, so accept them and try to find the root source and ease that pain - The core essence of you is a beautiful, unique, authentic spirit and you are worth of everything in life. #Quote by Nanette Mathews
Triggers quotes by Alice Boyes
#32. Although anxiety can sometimes seem like a flaw, it's actually an evolutionary advantage, a hypervigilance system that causes us to pause and scan the environment. Feeling anxious triggers us to start looking out for potential threats. If you detect a potential danger, it's not supposed to be easy for you to stop thinking about that threat. While that's great when you're a caveman worried about protecting your family, it's not as great when you're an employee convinced you're getting fired.
For many of us who suffer from anxiety, our anxiety alarms fire too often when there isn't a good reason to be excessively cautious. Why does this happen? We may have more sensitive anxiety systems. Or we may have been doing things to decrease our anxiety in the short term, such as avoiding things that make us feel anxious, that have actually increased it in the long term.
Having some false anxiety alarms - where you see threats that don't exist or worry about things that don't eventuate - isn't a defect in your system. Think of it in caveman terms: In a life-and-death sense, failing to notice a real threat (termed a false negative) is more of a problem than registering a potential danger that doesn't happen (termed a false positive). Therefore, having some false anxiety alarms is a built-in part of the system, to err on the side of caution. #Quote by Alice Boyes
Triggers quotes by David J. Schwartz
#33. Those who believe they can move mountains,do.Those who believe they can't,cannot. #Quote by David J. Schwartz
Triggers quotes by Paul Adam
#34. It had been many months since I'd shed tears for Tomaso, but grief is like that. It's not a continuous process; it comes in waves. You can keep it at bay for a time, like a dam holding back a lake, but them something triggers an explosion inside of you, shattering the wall and letting loose a flood. #Quote by Paul Adam
Triggers quotes by VD.
#35. To have the courage to face your fears and pain is to not only bring peace to yourself, but others around you. Destroying metaphysical illusions prevents damage inflicted by delusions and neurosis. One who engages in this will come to see the value of suffering as it serves as new learning and an agent of strengthening.

While those who avoid triggers or suffering because it is too 'difficult' in order to kill the pain, or are too cowardly to look at their imperfections to protect their image, kill themselves and others along with them. #Quote by VD.
Triggers quotes by Bashar Al-Assad
#36. In Great Britain, an author published a book in which he claimed that Jesus Christ had children. Such statements don't trigger civil unrest and bloodshed in Europe. But write similar statements about Islam in Syria and you might see bloody uprisings. #Quote by Bashar Al-Assad
Triggers quotes by Thalia
#37. There were a lot of little triggers that made me realize that life is now; life is happening while we're preoccupied with stupidities. Of course, growing. Of course, becoming a mother and understanding life from another perspective. #Quote by Thalia
Triggers quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#38. The book is not an object on the table; it is an event in the reader's mind. It's a process, through which an idea in my mind triggers an idea, more-or-less corresponding, in yours. The words on the page are merely the means to that end, a think-by-numbers set, a bottled daydream. The book, therefore, is only finished when someone reads it. - Sidelines #Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold
Triggers quotes by Dan Hill
#39. I think the last thing you want to do as a writer, as a storyteller, is to create indifference. I don't necessarily go out of my way to provoke, but I would much rather have a song that triggers a whole myriad of reactions than a song that inspires a shrug of the shoulder. #Quote by Dan Hill
Triggers quotes by David J. Schwartz
#40. Belief, strong belief, triggers the mind to figure ways and means and how-to. #Quote by David J. Schwartz
Triggers quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#41. Lying across his chest was a curious weapon, a shotgun with the barrel sawed off a foot in front of the triggers. It was clear that this had been fired at close range and that he had received the whole charge in the face, blowing his head almost to pieces. The triggers had been wired together, so as to make the simultaneous discharge more destructive. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Triggers quotes by Emily Temple
#42. Studies have shown that the act of looking at something attractive - a person, a product, some honest-to-goodness nature - triggers an involuntary series of synapse firings in the motor cerebellum. As it turns out, this is the exact same neural sequence that causes us to reach out a hand. Beauty, then, literally moves us. We all know this: beauty can easily force a hand. But will we ever shake the pressing delusion, as Tolstoy put it, that beauty is the same as goodness? After all, how often does goodness truly force a hand? more likely it stays it, and even then, barely, and even then, only for a time. #Quote by Emily Temple
Triggers quotes by Christopher Dines
#43. When the weeks have built up with frustration and immense stress and one of your co-workers, a manager or an employee triggers irritation or angers you, knowing how to respond in a mindful way can pay huge dividends. Knowing how to not take other people's emotional baggage personally and intuitively sensing when to bring up concerns and when not to is an expression of emotional intelligence. This is all possible if we are being truly mindful. #Quote by Christopher Dines
Triggers quotes by Pete Walker
#44. Many freeze types unconsciously believe that people and danger are synonymous, and that safety lies in solitude. Outside of fantasy, many give up entirely on the possibility of love. The freeze response, also known as the camouflage response, often triggers the individual into hiding, isolating and eschewing human contact as much as possible. This type can be so frozen in retreat mode that it seems as if their starter button is stuck in the 'off' position. It is usually the most profoundly abandoned child - 'the lost child' - who is forced to 'choose' and habituate to the freeze response… Unable to successfully employ fight, flight or fawn responses, the freeze type's defenses develop around classical dissociation. #Quote by Pete Walker
Triggers quotes by Cecelia Ahern
#45. When something happens, it triggers something inside us that connects us to a situation, connects us to other people, lighting us up and linking us like little lights on a Christmas tree, twisted and turned but still connected on a wire. Some go out, others flicker, others burn strong and bright, yet we're all on the same line. #Quote by Cecelia Ahern
Triggers quotes by Robert M. Sapolsky
#46. If I had to define a major depression in a single sentence, I would describe it as a genetic/neurochemical disorder requiring a strong environmental trigger whose characteristic manifestation is an inability to appreciate sunsets. #Quote by Robert M. Sapolsky
Triggers quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#47. All inner resistance is experienced as negativity in one form or another. All negativity is resistance. In this context, the two words are almost synonymous.
Negativity ranges from irritation or impatience to fierce anger, from a depressed mood or sullen resentment to suicidal despair. Sometimes the resistance triggers the emotional pain body #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Triggers quotes by Janette Rallison
#48. Guys can smell desperation. It triggers an instinct in them to run far and fast so they aren't around when a woman starts peeling apart her heart. #Quote by Janette Rallison
Triggers quotes by Charles Duhigg
#49. Even when alcoholics' brains were changed through surgery, it wasn't enough. The old cues and cravings for rewards were still there, waiting to pounce. The alcoholics only permanently changed once they learned new routines that drew on the old triggers and provided a familiar relief. #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Triggers quotes by Erika Robuck
#50. I often thought grief was like madness - the lack of control, the overwhelming waves of emotion with unexpected triggers, breathlessness, night sweats, nightmares, and the feeling of utter aloneness, like that of standing on a ledge in a violent wind. #Quote by Erika Robuck
Triggers quotes by David Cross
#51. Religion triggers a lot of emotions in me, most of which stem from being raised Jewish in a very Baptist community in the South. I didn't believe any of it from an early age - the clubby quality of whatever religion or church you belonged to, Judaism included. It just struck me as foolish. #Quote by David Cross
Triggers quotes by Deborah Rhode
#52. I do think the whole question of judicial accountability is a complicated one. On the one hand, you want to encourage judicial independence. And it's always, I think, problematic when an unpopular decision triggers a recall election.Because it sends a disempowering message to judges. On the other hand, it's the only way that voters have to rein in someone whose views are really so out of the mainstream of public opinion that they jeopardize the legitimacy of the judicial process. #Quote by Deborah Rhode
Triggers quotes by Michael Oppenheimer
#53. A hotter, moister atmosphere is an atmosphere primed to trigger disasters. #Quote by Michael Oppenheimer
Triggers quotes by S.C. Stephens
#54. I suppose we all have our buttons, our triggers that pushed hard enough, would make even the calmest person flip. #Quote by S.C. Stephens
Triggers quotes by Andre Breton
#55. The simplest Surrealist act consists of dashing down the street, pistol in hand, and firing blindly, as fast as you can pull the trigger, into the crowd. Anyone who, at least once in his life, has not dreamed of thus putting an end to the petty system of debasement and cretinization in effect has a well-defined place in that crowd with his belly at barrel-level. #Quote by Andre Breton
Triggers quotes by Sean  Parnell
#56. Everything was silent except for his heavy breathing. Steele tugged the helmet off and heard frantic voices coming closer.
He hit the riser release, stripped the 1911 from his chest, and held the pistol at the ready. Outside the voices were getting
closer.


"He is in here!" someone yelled in Arabic.

"Kill him, kill him!"

The door flew open, revealing a man with an AK-47 who stood there scanning the interior. Steele waited for him to step inside,
then dropped him with a shot to the skull. He scrambled to his feet. There was no time to grab his rifle from his pack - the
only thing he could do was press the attack. Moving to the door, he saw three more men running toward him, their chests heaving
and fingers on the triggers. The closest man saw him step out. He wasn't expecting one man to attack and his eyes widened
in surprise.


"Not today, boys."

Steele fired the first round too fast and it hit his target in the hip. The round spun him like a top, but Steele frowned,
knowing he had rushed the shot. He settled automatically into a shooter's stance and reengaged the first target before shifting
fire to the other two.


Thwap, thwap, thwap.


The suppressed 9mm bounced from chest to chest, sending a hollow point mushrooming into each. All three men were down before
the first casing tumbled to the ground. Steele step #Quote by Sean Parnell
Triggers quotes by Stephen W. Porges
#57. The detection of a person as safe or dangerous triggers neurobiologically determined pro-social or defensive behaviors.
Even though we may not always be aware of danger on a cognitive level, on a neurophysiological level, our body has already started a sequence of neural processes that would facilitate adaptive defense behaviors such as fight, flight or freeze. #Quote by Stephen W. Porges
Triggers quotes by Diablo Cody
#58. There's something about a roller coaster that triggers strong feelings, maybe because most of us associate them with childhood. They're inherently cinematic; the very shape of a coaster, all hills and valleys and sickening helices, evokes a human emotional response. #Quote by Diablo Cody
Triggers quotes by Holly Robinson Peete
#59. I'm not a doctor or scientist. I'm just a mom. But I do think there's a genetic predisposition, and there are environmental triggers. I feel like that combination, in my child's case, is what resulted in autism. #Quote by Holly Robinson Peete
Triggers quotes by Rick Perry
#60. Guns require a finger to pull the trigger. #Quote by Rick Perry
Triggers quotes by Paolo Pellegrin
#61. I'm more interested in a photography that is 'unfinished' - a photography that is suggestive and can trigger a conversation or dialogue. There are pictures that are closed, finished, to which there is no way in. #Quote by Paolo Pellegrin

#62. This faith in time's infinite patience triggers procrastination. #Quote by Anonymous
Triggers quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#63. We still don't know for sure what the trigger was, but since we've discovered meteorites with supernova dust, we do know that a violent explosion rocked our cosmic neighborhood at the time of our birth, and it's quite possible that without it, our stable, stately solar system would never exist at all. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Triggers quotes by Richard K. Morgan
#64. Hand over your responses to the man who triggers them, and you have already lost the battle for self. Look beyond, and find yourself there instead. #Quote by Richard K. Morgan
Triggers quotes by Michael Shermer
#65. What science offers for explaining the feelings we experience when believing in God or falling in love is complementary, not conflicting; additive, not detractive. I find it deeply interesting to know that when I fall in love with someone my initial lustful feelings are enhanced by dopamine, a neurohormone produced by the hypothalamus that triggers the release of testosterone, the hormone that drives sexual desire, and that my deeper feelings of attachment are reinforced by oxytocin, a hormone synthesized in the hypothalamus and secreted into the blood by the pituitary. Further, it is instructive to know that such hormone-induced neural pathways are exclusive to monogamous pair-bonded species as an evolutionary adaptation for the long-term care of helpless infants. We fall in love because our children need us! Does this in any way lessen the qualitative experience of falling in love and doting on one's children? Of course not, any more than unweaving a rainbow into its constituent parts reduces the aesthetic appreciation of the rainbow. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Triggers quotes by Shahida Arabi
#66. Dissociation leaves us disconnected from our memories, our identities and our emotions. It breaks the trauma into digestible components, so that different aspects of the trauma get stored in different compartments in our brain. What happens as a result is that the information from the trauma becomes disorganized and we are not able to integrate these pieces into a coherent narrative and process trauma fully until, hopefully, with the help of a validating, trauma-informed counselor who guides us to the appropriate therapies best suited to our needs, we confront the trauma and triggers in a safe place. #Quote by Shahida Arabi
Triggers quotes by Peter A. Lorge
#67. ... the very appearance of the word 'oriental' as a serious geographic or cultural term triggers alarm bells for any American academic. The late Edward Said's Orientalism argued that the word 'oriental' is a fundamentally pejorative term for certain parts of the non-Western world, not only indicating that they are inferior but also justifying Western colonization or domination of them. #Quote by Peter A. Lorge
Triggers quotes by Loretta Graziano Breuning
#68. Cynicism is popular because it stimulates the brain chemicals that make you feel good. It stimulates dopamine by making the world feel predictable. It triggers serotonin by making you feel superior to "the jerks." It triggers oxytocin by telling you who to trust. You pay a high price for these moments, unfortunately, because cynicism keeps you focused on problems instead of opportunities. #Quote by Loretta Graziano Breuning
Triggers quotes by Israel Shamir
#69. they tremble and hide under the table when a local branch of ADL calls them 'anti-Semites'. Like the label of 'witch' in Salem, this word triggers a spasm wave in the target population. #Quote by Israel Shamir
Triggers quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#70. It is far more important to be able to hit the target than it is to haggle over who makes a weapon or who pulls a trigger. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower

Triggers quotes by Alan Gottlieb

Triggers quotes by Brian Evenson
#74. Fiction is a set of observable manifestations, as represented and frozen in language, that triggers a profoundly subjective and individual experience.

Ultimately, this is the kind of productive dilemma that can allow fiction to get to places that other media does not. Fiction is exceptionally good at providing models for consciousness, and at putting readers in a position to take upon themselves the structure of another consciousness for a short while. It is better at this than any other genre or media, and can do it in any number of modes (realistic or metafictional, reliably or unreliably, representationally or metafictionally, etc.). But for it to be able to do this as well as it possibly can, it must clear a space. This is where, for me, doing without becomes most crucial.

The subtractions that we find in innovative fictions (even when those subtractions, as in Joyce's work, are followed by further ornamentations and encrustations) are there to facilitate the simulation of consciousness. What is subtracted is the significance and meaning designed to let us classify an experience without entering into it. Doing without such things opens the door wider for experience, putting the reader in a position where they are experiencing fiction in lieu of understanding it.

By paying more attention to what we leave out than to how readers are going to interpret or work after the fact, we refuse to let fiction be assimilable, digestible, and safe. We k #Quote by Brian Evenson
Triggers quotes by Terence McKenna
#75. At still higher doses psilocybin triggers this activity in the language-forming capacity of the brain that manifests as song and vision. Psilocybin may have synergized the emergence of higher forms of psychic organization out of primitive protohuman animals. It can be seen as a kind of evolutionary enzyme, or evolutionary catalyst. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Triggers quotes by Pattiann Rogers
#76. I've spent much of my life being attuned to watching for an image or a phrase that can trigger what might be a poem - could become a poem. #Quote by Pattiann Rogers
Triggers quotes by Lionel Barber
#77. But I do think that Brexit, an exit of Britain from the European Union, would trigger real pressure on the United Kingdom. #Quote by Lionel Barber
Triggers quotes by Thomas H. Davenport
#78. In an attempt to develop a tool to help organizations begin to identify these errors, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) developed a global trigger tool (GTT).9 Briefly, the GTT provides a standard methodology for reviewing patient records for triggers, or indicators, of potential adverse events. #Quote by Thomas H. Davenport
Triggers quotes by Karen Chance
#79. Louis-Cesare's anger suddenly filled the small room like water, and in a heartbeat his eyes went from silver tinged to as solid as two antique coins.
I sat frozen, awash in a sea of power. I was beginning to understand why Mircea had wanted him along, only Daddy had failed to mention anything about the hair-trigger temper. I guess he assumed the red hair would clue me in. #Quote by Karen Chance
Triggers quotes by Alan Greenspan
#80. Without the triggers, that tax cut is irreponsible fiscal policy. Eventually, I think that will be the consensus view. #Quote by Alan Greenspan
Triggers quotes by Bell Hooks
#81. Getting in touch with the lovelessness within and letting that lovelessness speak its pain is one way to begin again on love's journey. In relationships, whether heterosexual or homosexual, the partner who is hurting often finds that their mate is unwilling to 'hear' the pain. Women often tell me that they feel emotionally beaten down when their partners refuse to listen or talk. When women communicate from a place of pain, it is often characterized as 'nagging.' Sometimes women hear repeatedly that their partners are 'sick of listening to this shit.' Both cases undermine self-esteem. Those of us who were wounded in childhood often were shamed and humiliated when we expressed hurt. It is emotionally devastating when the partners we have chosen will not listen. Usually, partners who are unable to respond compassionately when hearing us speak our pain, whether they understand it or not, are unable to listen because that expressed hurt triggers their own feelings of powerlessness and helplessness. Many men never want to feel helpless or vulnerable. They will, at times, choose to silence a partner with violence rather than witness emotional vulnerability. When a couple can identify this dynamic, they can work on the issue of caring, listening to each other's pain by engaging in short conversations at appropriate times (i.e., it's useless to try and speak your pain to someone who is bone weary, irritable, reoccupied, etc.). Setting a time when both individuals come together to eng #Quote by Bell Hooks

#82. Intentions are the triggers for transformation in the body. If you want to wiggle your toes, you do it through intention. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Triggers quotes by Eddie McClintock
#83. I was supposed to go see Led Zeppelin when I was in, like, the 8th or 9th grade, and then John Bonham died and I never was able to. For me, music is such a huge part of my life, and I use songs like memory triggers. So a lot of my memories of being a kid and growing up are associated with different songs. #Quote by Eddie McClintock
Triggers quotes by Suzette Boon
#84. Most dissociative parts influence your experience from the inside rather than exert complete control, that is, through passive influence.
*
In fact, many parts never take complete control of a person, but are only experienced internally.
*
Frequent switching may be a sign of severe stress and inner conflict in most individuals. #Quote by Suzette Boon
Triggers quotes by David Neeleman
#85. In the midst of all the chaos swirling through your brain, all the disorganization and impulsiveness, the condition (ADHD) also seems to trigger a certain kind of creativity. #Quote by David Neeleman
Triggers quotes by Arthur Koestler
#86. This experience of partness within a dynamic whole leads to a temporary suspension of individual responsibility-which is replaced by unconditional subordination to the 'controlling centre', the leader of the crowd. It further entails the temporary effacement of all self-assertive tendencies: the total surrender of the individual to the collectivity is manifested in altruistic, heroic, self-sacrificing acts-and at the same time in bestial cruelty towards the enemy or victim of the collective whole. This is a further example of the self-transcending emotions serving as catalysts or triggers for their opponents. #Quote by Arthur Koestler
Triggers quotes by James Baker
#87. If you're not gonna pull the trigger, don't point the gun. #Quote by James Baker
Triggers quotes by Mehmet Oz
#88. Your genetics load the gun. Your lifestyle pulls the trigger. #Quote by Mehmet Oz
Triggers quotes by Thomm Quackenbush
#89. Having ascended to some spiritual strength by focusing on the power of the feminine, it is no doubt tempting to wield this strength against that which triggers memories of having once been weaker. #Quote by Thomm Quackenbush
Triggers quotes by Brene Brown
#90. One of the most powerful ways that our shame triggers get reinforced is when we enter into a social contract based on these gender straitjackets. Our relationships are defined by women and men saying, "I'll play my role, and you play yours." One of the patterns revealed in the research was how all that role playing becomes almost unbearable around midlife. Men feel increasingly disconnected, and the fear of failure becomes paralyzing. Women are exhausted, and for the first time they begin to clearly see that the expectations are impossible. The accomplishments, accolades, and acquisitions that are a seductive part of living by this contract start to feel like a Faustian bargain. #Quote by Brene Brown
Triggers quotes by Aishah Madadiy
#91. I leave his house feeling blissed. It is not the same feeling like when you get a present from someone, you buy things you desire, or you receive good news. It is something intrinsic that stems from solicitude, which triggers your conscience to carry out something good - in my case, helping Mr Mario. That is how righteousness works. It does not only give pleasure to the receiver (of good action), but to the giver as well. #Quote by Aishah Madadiy

Triggers quotes by David Morrell
#93. I use these senses - touch, sight, feel and smell - as triggers that invite readers or propel them into the scene. The trick is not to make it obvious. I've written an entire chapter about this in my book, 'The Successful Novelist.' I've lectured about it extensively, but have yet to see many people pick up on it. #Quote by David Morrell
Triggers quotes by Karen A. Duncan
#94. Eating disorders are prevalent among women who were sexually abused as children. They seem to have components of other symptoms such as obsessions, compulsions, avoidance of food, and anxiety, and they primarily include a distorted body image and feelings of body shame.
For some women, eating disorders are related to the loss of control over their bodies during the sexual abuse and serve as a means of feeling in control of their bodies now. Eating disorders can also be indicative of the developmental stage and age at which the sexual abuse began. Women with anorexia and bulimia report that they were sexually abused either at the age of puberty or during puberty, when their bodies were beginning to develop and they felt a great deal of body shame from the abuse. By contrast, women with compulsive eating report that the sexual abuse occurred before the age of puberty; they used food for comfort. #Quote by Karen A. Duncan
Triggers quotes by Ijeoma Umebinyuo
#95. Stop the idea that a woman's beauty is for a man's gaze, that you have the right to touch her. This idea that she must smile and accept unwanted approaches even when she is clearly uncomfortable. Just because you call a woman beautiful does not mean you have the right to behave like her beauty belongs to you. There are women healing from scars gotten from men who have called them beautiful yet offered them pain. The beauty of a woman is hers and hers alone. There are triggers for some women, respect this and know this. The beauty of a woman is hers and hers alone #Quote by Ijeoma Umebinyuo

Triggers quotes by Lawrence Anthony
#98. The Americans were understandably on hair triggers. There was a good reason for all of this security. For despite TV images of quick victory, much of Baghdad certainly had not fallen and firefights with die-hard Ba'athists loyal to Saddam Hussein were raging all over the city. #Quote by Lawrence Anthony
Triggers quotes by John Robert Seeley
#99. It's a withdrawal of love, coupled with rejection. That combination is hard to accept, and often triggers feelings of not good enough, failure at relationship, insecurity, lack of trust and other feelings. #Quote by John Robert Seeley
Triggers quotes by Janet Frame
#100. I had a cousin once who lived in your dictionary, inside the binding, and there was a tiny hole which he used for a door, and it led out between trichotomy and trick. Now what do you think of that? It was only a few minutes walk to trigger, then over the page to trinity, trinket and trional, and there my cousin used to fall asleep. #Quote by Janet Frame

#105. All my life, books have felt alive; some more so than people, or rather, some people. Alive - this has to do with me, I know, and not the books - in a way that some people aren't. Alive as teachers, alive as minds, alive as imaginative triggers. #Quote by Andrea Barrett

Triggers quotes by Steven Kotler
#107. And the dark night of flow is an issue that society has not made particularly easy to handle. How many people have stopped playing guitar, writing poetry, or painting watercolors - activities packed with flow triggers - because these are also activities that do not squarely fit into culturally acceptable responsibility categories like "career" or "children"? How many, now grown up and done with childish things, have put away the surfboard, the skateboard, the whatever? How many have made the mistake of conflating the value of the vehicle that leads us to an experience (the surfboard, etc.) with the value of the experience itself (the flow state)? #Quote by Steven Kotler

Being able to feel my triggers without reacting must be largely credited to learning to anchor myself in my body through mindful body scan meditation. #Quote by Christopher Dines

Triggers quotes by Harun Yahya
#112. Of all the metals there is none more essential to life than iron. It is the
accumulation of iron in the center of a star which triggers a supernova
explosion and the subsequent scattering of the vital atoms of life
throughout the cosmos. It was the drawing by gravity of iron atoms to
the center of the primeval earth that generated the heat which caused the
initial chemical differentiation of the earth, the outgassing of the early
atmosphere, and ultimately the formation of the hydrosphere. It is molten
iron in the center of the earth which, acting like a gigantic dynamo, generates
the earth's magnetic field, which in turn creates the Van Allen radiation
belts that shield the earth's surface from destructive high-energypenetrating
cosmic radiation and preserve the crucial ozone layer from
cosmic ray destruction…
Without the iron atom, there would be no carbon-based life in the cosmos;
no supernovae, no heating of the primitive earth, no atmosphere or
hydrosphere. There would be no protective magnetic field, no Van Allen
radiation belts, no ozone layer, no metal to make hemoglobin [in human
blood], no metal to tame the reactivity of oxygen, and no oxidative
metabolism.
The intriguing and intimate relationship between life and iron, between
the red color of blood and the dying of some distant star, not only indicates
the relevance of metals to biology but also the biocentricity of #Quote by Harun Yahya

Triggers quotes by John Grisham
#114. One is wearing a uniform of green-and-gray camouflage, as if he were hunting deer in the woods. The other is wearing a uniform of brown-and-beige camouflage, as if he were hunting insurgents in the desert. These two clowns are standing in the driveway of a suburban home, about fifteen minutes from downtown, in a well-developed city of a million people, and they're wearing camouflage. The sad and scary thing about this image is that these guys have no idea how stupid they look. Instead, they're proud, arrogant. They're on display, tough guys fighting bad guys. One of their brethren has been hit, wounded, fallen in the line of duty, and they're pissed about it. They scowl at the neighbors across the street. One wrong word, and they might start shooting. Their fingers are on the triggers. #Quote by John Grisham
Triggers quotes by Jeffrey McDaniel

Triggers quotes by Gary F. Marcus
#118. To take one example, even a brief exposure to light in a newborn kitten, rat, or monkey can launch a complex cascade of gene expression. The light activates photoreceptors-which send signals-which trigger a pathway-which leads to the expression of neural growth factors and a set of genes known as "immediate early genes" or "early response genes"-each of which, in turn, triggers the expression of many more genes. One study of cichlid fish suggests that a change in social status (from submissive to dominant) is tied to changes in the expression levels of at least fifty-nine different genes-a phenomenon not entirely unrelated to the testosterone rush that Joe-six-pack gets when the home team wins. #Quote by Gary F. Marcus
Triggers quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#119. Compassion and communication are both incredibly important in relationships, but most of us use these at the wrong time. If we communicate, it's only in times of conflict, allowing repressed emotions and unsaid worries form into their worst phrasings. If we show compassion, it's only in good times, when we're feeling good about one another and don't feel triggered or attacked. What if we changed our approach? What if we showed compassion in conflict - taking the time to listen, understand, help each other release pent-up emotions? And what if we communicated in good times - taking the time to talk about patterns we fall into, triggers we both have, and how we can work together to break our cycles? Then, we would stop helplessly dancing the same old tango of mutual misunderstanding. Then, we could work on giving one another room to feel, to love, and to grow. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Triggers quotes by Steve Aylett
#120. Satire works in a bunch of specific ways, like a very precisely-geared bomb. It's a bit like something that looks harmless, and you swallow it, but once it's inside you it's too late, and it triggers, blowing up. And it's your specific inner beliefs and faulty arguments that trigger a satire bomb. If your arguments work, the bomb doesn't trigger, it doesn't need to. #Quote by Steve Aylett
Triggers quotes by Bob Dylan
#121. I can identify with other people and situations, but I tend not to. I would rather recall things from my own life, and I don't have to force myself ... Just being in certain environments triggers a response in my brain, a certain feeling I want to articulate. For some reason, I am attracted to self-destruction. I know that personal sacrifice has a great deal to do with how we live or don't live our lives. #Quote by Bob Dylan
Triggers quotes by Rae DelBianco
#122. Why is it always the horse that dies first, and never you?" the girl asked.
"Because of strength of will."
She stopped with the sand.
"Does that still matter out here?"
"It always does."
"That sounds like fate."
The mule shifted and he put a hand on one of its legs.
"Well, maybe it's fate."
"Then what is fate?" she asked, the voice seeming amputated and roving in the sightless black.
"It's somethin you're born with. Somethin that's passed down from the fathers before and shows itself in triggers that weren't meant to be pulled and triggers that were. You caint control it and can only look back on it as explanation for why you did the things you did even if they've ruined you because it couldn't have been any other way."
"Can you fight against it?"
"Yeah, like you can fight against the land. #Quote by Rae DelBianco

Triggers quotes by Pema Chodron
#125. Our tendencies with their habitual story lines are described as seeds in the unconscious. When the right causes and conditions come together, these preexisting propensities pop up like flowers in the springtime. It's helpful to contemplate that it's these propensities and not what triggers them that are the real cause of our suffering. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Triggers quotes by Clayton M Christensen
#126. When the corporation's investment capital becomes impatient for growth, good money becomes bad money because it triggers a subsequent cascade of inevitable incorrect decisions. Innovators who seek funding for the disruptive innovations that could ultimately fuel the company's growth with a high probability of success now find that their trial balloons get shot down because they can't get big enough fast enough. Managers of most disruptive businesses can't credibly project that the business will become very big very fast, because new-market disruptions need to compete against nonconsumption and must follow an emergent strategy process. Compelling them to project big numbers forces them to declare a strategy that confidently crams the innovation into a large, existing, and obvious market whose size can be statistically substantiated. This means competing against consumption. #Quote by Clayton M Christensen
Triggers quotes by Michael Talbot
#127. Most disconcerting of all were those experiences in which the patient's consciousness appeared to expand beyond the usual boundaries of the ego and explore what it was like to be other living things and even other objects. For example, Grof had one female patient who suddenly became convinced she had assumed the identity of a female prehistoric reptile. She not only gave a richly detailed description of what it felt like to be encapsuled in such a form, but noted that the portion of the male of the species' anatomy she found most sexually arousing was a patch of colored scales on the side of its head. Although the woman had no prior knowledge of such things, a conversation Grof had with a zoologist later confirmed that in certain species of reptiles, colored areas on the head do indeed play an important role as triggers of sexual arousal. Patients were also able to tap into the consciousness of their relatives and ancestors. One woman experienced what it was like to be her mother at the age of three and accurately described a frightening event that had befallen her mother at the time. The woman also gave a precise description of the house her mother had lived in as well as the white pinafore she had been wearing - all details her mother later confirmed and admitted she had never talked about before. Other patients gave equally accurate descriptions of events that had befallen ancestors who had lived decades and even centuries before. Other experiences included the accessing o #Quote by Michael Talbot

Triggers quotes by Alison Gopnik
#129. Initially children use just a few names, mostly for familiar things and people. But when they are still just beginning to talk, many babies will suddenly start naming everything and asking for the names of everything they see. In fact, what'sat? is itself often one of the earliest words. An eighteen-month-old baby will go into a triumphant frenzy of pointing and naming: "What'sat! Dog! What'sat! Clock! What'sat juice, spoon, orange, high chair, clock! Clock! Clock!" Often this is the point at which even fondly attentive parents lose track of how many new words the baby has learned. It's as if the baby discovers that everything has a name, and this discovery triggers a kind of naming explosion. #Quote by Alison Gopnik

Triggers quotes by Tristan Taormino
#131. Fear triggers the fight-or-flight response, fueled by adrenaline, which, as it turns out, is chemically related to amphetamines. Granted, it's a very different kind of high for mindfuckers: not a mellow, floaty "my vulva is one with the universe" high but a jittery, revved-up "oh fuck oh fuck oh fuck" kind of high. Endorphins are like great downers but adrenaline is uppers all the way. And it's just as addictive. Don't believe me? Go ask anyone who likes to jump off bridges or out of airplanes. - Edge #Quote by Tristan Taormino
Triggers quotes by Laurie Matthew
#132. He loves me so he hurts me
To try and make me good.
It doesn't work. I'm just too bad
And don't do what I should.

My memory has so many different sections and, like all survivors, there are so many compartments with so many triggers. I'll remember a smell which reminds me of a man which reminds me of a place which reminds me of another man who I think was with a woman who had a certain smell - and I'm back to square one. This is the case for most survivors, I believe. When we try to put together our pasts, the triggers are many and varied, the memories are disjointed - and why wouldn't they be? We were children. Even someone with an idyllic childhood who is only trying to remember the lovely things which happened to them will scratch their head and wonder who gave them that doll and was it for Christmas or their third birthday? Did they have a party when they were four or five? When did they go on a plane for the first time? You see, even happy memories are hard to piece together - so imagine how hard it is to collate all of the trauma, to pull together all of the things I've been trying to push away for so many years. #Quote by Laurie Matthew
Triggers quotes by David Jeremiah
#133. I learned to pray out of desperation. For most of us, this is how the adventure usually begins. When we finally get serious about prayer, the trigger is usually desperation, not duty ...

Triggers quotes by Charles Duhigg
#135. Take, for instance, studies from the past decade examining the impacts of exercise on daily routines.4.10 When people start habitually exercising, even as infrequently as once a week, they start changing other, unrelated patterns in their lives, often unknowingly. Typically, people who exercise start eating better and becoming more productive at work. They smoke less and show more patience with colleagues and family. They use their credit cards less frequently and say they feel less stressed. It's not completely clear why. But for many people, exercise is a keystone habit that triggers widespread change. "Exercise spills over," said James Prochaska, a University of Rhode Island researcher. "There's something about it that makes other good habits easier. #Quote by Charles Duhigg

Triggers quotes by Brene Brown
#138. Interestingly, in terms of shame triggers for women, motherhood is a close second. And (bonus!) you don't have to be a mother to experience mother shame. Society views womanhood and motherhood as inextricably bound; therefore our value as women is often determined by where we are in relation to our roles as mothers or potential mothers. Women are constantly asked why they haven't married or, if they're married, why they haven't had children. Even women who are married and have one child are often asked why they haven't had a second child. #Quote by Brene Brown
Triggers quotes by Thomm Quackenbush
#139. Any relationship beyond acquaintanceship is composed of one to three qualities: passion, intimacy, and commitment. Simple friendship has one: intimacy. You can have other friends and you do not feel passionately about one another, or we are dealing with another animal. Most romantic relationships begin with a dollop of passion, often to the exclusion of anything else. The person in your arms is the best in the world, though you barely know him or her. You have never felt this way. Any gaps or deficits are temporarily puttied over by passion. When most people envision romantic love, this is where they stop. Romantic comedies but only rarely deal with washing your lover's dishes because they must be up early for work. No one wants to see the mundane when they can flip the channel to a desperate, emotionally-stunted frottage. The passion of infatuation triggers the release of addictive chemicals. We would rather get another hit than cope with the relative dullness of intimacy and commitment. #Quote by Thomm Quackenbush

Triggers quotes by John C. Norcross
#141. You should prepare to follow the program for 90 days. Why? Because behavioral research indicates that it takes 90 days to prepare for change, build a new behavior, become confident in the face of high-risk triggers, and move past the likelihood of relapse. Brain research also suggests that it takes a few months of practicing a new behavior to create permanent change. #Quote by John C. Norcross
Triggers quotes by Parker J. Palmer
#142. As a young man, I yearned for the day when, rooted in the experience that comes only with age, I could do my work fearlessly. But today, in my mid-sixties, I realize that I will feel fear from time to time for the rest of my life. I may never get rid of my fear. But ... I can learn to walk into it and through it whenever it rises up ... naming the inner force that triggers ... fear ... Naming our fears aloud ... is the first step toward transcending them. #Quote by Parker J. Palmer
Triggers quotes by Dale Archer
#143. You have to understand that PTSD has to be an event that you experience, a very traumatic event.

Triggers quotes by Jill Bolte Taylor
#149. When a person has a reaction to something in their environment, there's a 90 second chemical process that happens in the body; after that, any remaining emotional response is just the person choosing to stay in that emotional loop.
Something happens in the external world and chemicals are flushed through your body which puts it on full alert. For those chemicals to totally flush out of the body it takes less than 90 seconds.
This means that for 90 seconds you can watch the process happening, you can feel it happening, and then you can watch it go away.
After that, if you continue to feel fear, anger, and so on, you need to look at the thoughts that you're thinking that are re-stimulating the circuitry that is resulting in you having this physiological response over and over again. #Quote by Jill Bolte Taylor

Triggers quotes by Beverly Engel
#152. Because of dissociation, many victims are able to remember the abuse only when a certain object, smell, color, scene, or experience triggers a sudden, severe reaction. During a flashback one seems to see, feel, hear, smell, or taste something from the past as if it were actually happening in the present. In a visual flashback, you actually see the scene of your abuse, or you may see an object or image that reminds you or is symbolic of your abuse. #Quote by Beverly Engel

Triggers quotes by Paulo Coelho
#157. I imagine that some people spend years allowing the pressure to build up inside them without even noticing, and then one day some tiny incident triggers a crisis. Then they say: "I've had enough, I don't want this anymore." Some commit suicide. Others get divorced. Some go to poor parts of Africa to try to save the world. But I know myself. I know that my only reaction will be to repress my feelings until a cancer starts eating me up inside. Because I do actually believe that many illnesses are the result of repressed emotions. #Quote by Paulo Coelho

Triggers quotes by Adah Sachs
#165. In this paper I propose the existence of two distinct presentations of DID, a Stable and an Active one. While people with Stable DID struggle with their traumatic past, with triggers that re-evoke that past and with the problems of daily functioning with severe dissociation, people with Active DID are, in addition, also engaged in a life of current, on-going involvement in abusive relationships, and do not respond to treatment in the same way as other DID patients. The paper observes these two proposed DID presentations in the context of other trauma-based disorders, through the lens of their attachment relationship. It proposes that the type, intensity and frequency of relational trauma shape - and can thus predict - the resulting mental disorder.

#167. If you have smoked since you were sixteen, every time you pick up a cigarette in the day you are also brainwashing yourself. "In this situation I pick up a cigarette" sends a little ripple down through consciousness that adds to the "take a cigarette" mound. That's why cigarettes are more difficult than almost anything else to give up. Aside from their physical cravings, we create mental cravings because the habit is very repetitive. The habit of smoking puts itself into every situation. The triggers to that situation are so many that many smokers still sometimes want to smoke even years after they have stopped because the mound is still there. #Quote by B.K.S. Iyengar
Triggers quotes by Bernhard Goetz
#168. I don't regret pulling the trigger. I should have been more careful with many of the things I said afterwards. That was a big regret. #Quote by Bernhard Goetz
Triggers quotes by Sarah Hackley
#169. By taking the time to focus on our mental and emotional well-being, we can minimize our triggers and reduce the likelihood of a recurrence. #Quote by Sarah Hackley
Triggers quotes by Gary Holland
#170. Art is about communication. Art that lasts through the ages works symbolically. It triggers feelings and experiences that we've all had. #Quote by Gary Holland
Triggers quotes by Jerry Saltz
#171. The debut show, "Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary," is supposed to be about how artists reuse humble or unusual materials. There's good work here, but much of what's on view is actually more about obsession and repetition: a couch made out of 3,500 quarters, a necklace composed of 100 handgun triggers. The building [of Museum of Arts and Design], too, seems caught between wanting to be an object of decorative delectation and making an architectural statement. #Quote by Jerry Saltz
Triggers quotes by Roy Rogers
#172. When my time comes, just skin me and put me up there on Trigger, just as though nothing had ever changed. #Quote by Roy Rogers

#173. creativity triggers flow; then flow enhances creativity. #Quote by Steven Kotler
Triggers quotes by Anne Enright
#174. There are little thoughts in your head that can grow until they eat your entire mind. Just tiny little thoughts
they are like a cancer, there is no telling what triggers the spread, or who will be struck, and why some get it and others are spared. #Quote by Anne Enright
Triggers quotes by Chris Kraus
#175. We grasp at symbols, talismans, triggers of association to what's forever gone. #Quote by Chris Kraus
Triggers quotes by William Faulkner
#176. A dream is not a very safe thing to be near ... I know; I had one once. It's like a loaded pistol with a hair trigger: if it stays alive long enough, somebody is going to be hurt. But if it's a good dream, it's worth it. #Quote by William Faulkner
Triggers quotes by Pope Francis
#177. Soccer must play a socio-cultural role. We reach 1.6 billion people, thanks to the positive emotions that soccer triggers, FIFA is more influential than any country on Earth and any religion. We move masses. We want to use that to create more peace, justice and health in the world. #Quote by Pope Francis
Triggers quotes by Clair Davies
#178. An appallingly high percentage of doctors and other practitioners are still pretty much out of the loop regarding trigger points, despite their having been written about in medical journals for over sixty years. #Quote by Clair Davies
Triggers quotes by Scott Anderson
#179. History is often the tale of small moments - chance encounters or casual decisions or sheer coincidence - that seem of little consequence at the time, but somehow fuse with other small moments to produce something momentous, the proverbial flapping of a butterfly's wings that triggers a hurricane. #Quote by Scott Anderson
Triggers quotes by John E. Erb
#180. There are few chemicals that we as a people are exposed to that have as many far reaching physiological affects on living beings as Monosodium Glutamate does. MSG directly causes obesity, diabetes, triggers epilepsy, destroys eye tissues, is genotoxic in many organs and is the probable cause of ADHD and Autism. Considering that MSG's only reported role in food is that of 'flavour enhancer' is that use worth the risk of the myriad of physical ailments associated with it? Does the public really want to be tricked into eating more food and faster by a food additive? #Quote by John E. Erb
Triggers quotes by Robin Berman
#181. The bottom line is that kids with too much power feel unsafe. Children with too much influence often become anxious because they feel like they have to control their environment, and they really don't know how. This stress triggers a cascade of toxic neurochemistry. Creating situations in which a child's developing brain is consistently bathed in the stress hormone cortisol is not a wise parenting move. #Quote by Robin Berman
Triggers quotes by Douglas Coupland
#182. We're told by TV and Reader's Digest that a crisis will trigger massive personal change
and that those big changes will make the pain worthwhile. But from what he could see, big change almost never happens. People simply feel lost. They have no idea what to say or do or feel or think. they become messes and tend to remain messes. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Triggers quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#183. It's the squares who know how to fly the fighter planes and operate the missiles and the bombs and work the M-16s. Liberals would still be fumbling with the federally mandated trigger locks. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Triggers quotes by Evgeny Morozov
#184. Simply getting a country's population online is not going to trigger a revolution in critical thinking. #Quote by Evgeny Morozov
Triggers quotes by John Piper
#185. God loves to show mercy ... His anger must be released by a stiff safety lock, but His mercy has a hair trigger. #Quote by John Piper
Triggers quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#186. However, every advance in our knowledge of the cosmos has revealed that we live on a cosmic speck of dust, orbiting a mediocre star in the far suburbs of a common sort of galaxy, among a hundred billion galaxies in the universe. The news of our cosmic unimportance triggers impressive defense mechanisms in the human psyche. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Triggers quotes by Ralph Ellison
#187. I do not know if all cops are poets, but I know that all cops carry guns with triggers. #Quote by Ralph Ellison
Triggers quotes by Helen Fisher
#188. That "ol' black magic" is a fickle force. The chemistry of romantic love can trigger the chemistry of sexual desire and the fuel of sexual desire can trigger the fuel of romance. This is why it is dangerous to copulate with someone with whom you don't wish to become involved. Although you intend to have casual sex, you might just fall in love. #Quote by Helen Fisher
Triggers quotes by Alice Boyes
#189. Imagery exposure is a technique in which you vividly recall a situation you've been ruminating about, such as a colleague pointing out an embarrassing error you made. You can also use imagery exposure for a worry thought (something that hasn't happened yet).
To start, recall all the sights and sounds of the past situation (or feared situation) in as much detail as you can. For example, if you're recalling a situation that has happened, you might recall turning bright red with embarrassment and the other people looking at you strangely or laughing. You would also recall details like what the room looked like, what the temperature was, whether the sun was streaming in through the window, and so on. Bring the image of the embarrassing or worry situation vividly to mind.
The following is based on the principle that anxiety symptoms will naturally subside if you don't use escape or avoidance strategies: Deliberately keep the image in mind until your anxiety falls to half of where it started (or less). For example, if vividly recalling the situation triggers 8 out of 10 anxiety initially, hold the image in mind until your anxiety drops to about a level 4. Repeat the imagery exposure exercise at least once a day until you can bring the image to mind without it triggering more than about half of the peak anxiety you experienced the first time you tried imagery exposure.
Exposure techniques like this are some of the most powerful ways to solve problems with intrusive #Quote by Alice Boyes

#190. And Kingsley being Kingsley, he smiled as he pretended to pull the trigger. #Quote by Melissa De La Cruz
Triggers quotes by Lech Walesa
#191. Communism in Cuba will collapse sooner or later because you can't control the free flow of information. Communism prevents organizations from developing by stopping the flow of information. The system is based on police and listening devices and triggers the worst characteristics in humans. #Quote by Lech Walesa
Triggers quotes by Brian Eno
#192. Art is not an object, but a trigger for experience. #Quote by Brian Eno
Triggers quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#193. A given symptom is responded to by a phobia, the phobia triggers the symptom, and the symptom, in turn, reinforces the phobia. A similar chain of events, however, can be observed in obsessive-compulsive cases in which the patient fights the ideas which haunt him. Thereby, however, he increases their power to disturb him, since pressure precipitates counter-pressure. Again the symptom is reinforced! On the other hand, as soon as the patient stops fighting his obsessions and instead tries to ridicule them by dealing with them in an ironical way-by applying paradoxical intention-the vicious circle is cut, the symptom diminishes and finally atrophies. In the fortunate case where there is no existential vacuum which invites and elicits the symptom, the patient will not only succeed in ridiculing his neurotic fear but finally will succeed in completely ignoring it.

As we see, anticipatory anxiety has to be counteracted by paradoxical intention; hyper-intention as well as hyper-reflection have to be counteracted by dereflection; dereflection, however, ultimately is not possible except by the patient's orientation toward his specific vocation and mission in life.

It is not the neurotic's self-concern, whether pity or contempt, which breaks the circle formation; the cue to cure is self-transcendence. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Triggers quotes by Dave Rudbarg
#194. Healing is not healed.
Numbed is not healed.
Healing takes time.
Healing takes patience.
Healing takes love.
Healing sometimes triggers anger or sadness or sorrow or guilt or regret.
Long suppressed.
Long unaddressed
So we make up that healing is wrong,useless and to be avoided
And we head back to numbing
And look for love and connection
With the numbed and suppressed,unaddressed and repressed ...
Give space for the damage
Give space for the healing
Let the healing begin and begin and begin ... #Quote by Dave Rudbarg
Triggers quotes by Joseph Rotblat
#195. This is the reality of nuclear weapons: they may trigger a world war; a war which, unlike previous ones, destroys all of civilization. #Quote by Joseph Rotblat
Triggers quotes by Anderson Cooper
#196. But in truth, the world is constantly shifting: shape and size, location in space. It's got edges and chasms, too many to count. They open up, close, reappear somewhere else. Geologists nay have mapped out the planet's tectonic plates -hidden shelves of rock that grind, one against the other, forming mountains, creating continents - but thy can't plot the fault lines that run through our heads, divide out hearts.
The map of the world is always changing; sometimes it happens overnight. All it takes is the blink of an eye, the squeeze of a trigger, a sudden gust of wind. Wake up and your life is perched on a precipice; fall asleep, it swallows you whole #Quote by Anderson Cooper
Triggers quotes by Michel Chossudovsky
#197. The budget targets imposed by the Bretton Woods institutions, combined with the effects of the devaluation, trigger the collapse of public investment. #Quote by Michel Chossudovsky

#199. Ideas come from somewhere. People don't come up with these ideas from nowhere. Something triggers your thoughts. #Quote by Lazaro Hernandez
Triggers quotes by Jennifer Crusie
#200. Infatuation is the fun part of falling in love. Infatuation triggers a chemical in the brain called PEA, your heart races, and you get breathless and dizzy, you tremble, and you can't think. It's what most people think of when they think of falling in love, and everybody goes through it. #Quote by Jennifer Crusie
