Trying To Maintain quotes by Julie Garwood
#2. Can we get on with this?" Father Laggan cried out. "In the name of the Father…"
"I'm inviting my aunt Millicent and uncle Herbert to come for a visit, Iain, and I'm not going through the council to get permission first."
"… and of the Son," the priest continued in a much louder voice.
"She'll be wanting King John next," Duncan predicted.
"We can't allow that, lass," Owen muttered.
"Please join hands now and concentrate on this ceremony," Father Laggan shouted, trying to gain everyone's attention.
"I don't want King John to come here," Judith argued. She turned to frown at Owen for making such a shameful suggestion. "I want my aunt and uncle. I'm getting them, too." She turned and had to peek around Graham in order to look up at Iain. "Yes or no, Iain."
"We'll see. Graham, I'm marrying Judith, not you. Let go of her hand. Judith, move over here."
Father Laggan gave up trying to maintain order. He continued on with the ceremony. Iain was paying some attention. He immediately agreed to take Judith for his wife.She wasn't as cooperative. He felt a little sorry for the sweet woman. She looked thoroughly
confused.
"Judith, do you take Iain for your husband?"
She looked up at Iain before giving her answer. "We'll see."
"That won't do, lass. You've got to say I do," he advised.
"Do I?"
Iain smiled. "Your aunt and uncle will be welcomed here."
She smiled back.

Judith tried not to laugh. She turne #Quote by Julie Garwood
Trying To Maintain quotes by Brene Brown
#3. In Jungian circles, shame is often referred to as the swampland of the soul. I'm not suggesting that we wade out into the swamp and set up camp. I've done that and I can tell you that the swampland of the soul is an important place to visit, but you would not want to live there. What I'm proposing is that we learn how to wade through it. We need to see that standing on the shore and catastrophisizing about what could happen if we talked honestly about our fears is actually more painful than grabbing the hand of a trusted companion and crossing the swamp. And, most important, we need to learn why constantly trying to maintain our footing on the shifting shore as we gaze across to the other side of the swamp - where our worthiness waits for us - is much harder work than trudging across. #Quote by Brene Brown
Trying To Maintain quotes by Thomas Lynch
#4. Walking upright between the past and future, a tightrope walk across our times, became, for me, a way of living: trying to maintain a balance between the competing gravities of birth and death, hope and regret, sex and mortality, love and grief, all those opposites or nearly opposites that become, after a while, the rocks and hard places, synonymous forces between which we navigate, like salmon balanced in the current, damned some times if we do or don't. #Quote by Thomas Lynch
Trying To Maintain quotes by Lionel Suggs
#5. People thank God when God no longer sits on the throne. The angels descend down to deliver miracles because they are trying to maintain the face of God. In the end, you must place your hopes and prayers with the angels. It has become quite sad in Heaven without its puppet master. #Quote by Lionel Suggs
Trying To Maintain quotes by Frederick P. Brooks Jr.
#6. A basic principle of data processing teaches the folly of trying to maintain independent files in synchonism. #Quote by Frederick P. Brooks Jr.
Trying To Maintain quotes by Jimmy Carter
#7. I have nothing against a community that is made up of people who are Polish, or who are Czechoslovakians, or who are French Canadians or who are blacks trying to maintain the ethnic purity of their neighborhoods. This is a natural inclination. [..] Government should not break up a neighborhood on a numerical basis. As soon as the Government does, the white folks flee. #Quote by Jimmy Carter

Trying To Maintain quotes by Adam Baker
#13. The burden of selfhood," she sighed. "Life-long anguish. Straining to support an elaborate artifice every waking moment. Trying to maintain our bullshit personas. Haircuts, clothes. Making our big fucking statements to an indifferent world. We drink, we smoke, we squander fortunes on DVDs, anything to escape ourselves for a few blessed minutes. #Quote by Adam Baker
Trying To Maintain quotes by George Carlin
#14. Regarding local residents attempting to ban sex shops from their neighborhoods: You show me a parent who says he's worried about his child's innocence and I'll show you a homeowner trying to maintain equity. #Quote by George Carlin
Trying To Maintain quotes by Shaquille O'Neal
#15. I'm not really worried about my numbers now as a 36-year-old. I'm not trying to be the first, experimental case of a 36-year-older trying to maintain his numbers, especially when I'm on a team like this. Can I do the same stuff I could do when I was Amare's age? Of course not. I'm not going to even try. However, I feel that I'm the baddest 36-year-old out there. #Quote by Shaquille O'Neal
Trying To Maintain quotes by Michelle A. Valentine
#16. Confidence is key in any situation when trying to maintain power. #Quote by Michelle A. Valentine
Trying To Maintain quotes by Matt De La Pena
#17. He'd give anything to be out there playing instead of standing here watching. Trying to maintain this smile out of respect. He digs into his wrists some more with his nails. Breaks previously broken skin and pulls away. A smear of blood he wipes away with his other hand, rubs off across his dark jeans. Back home his mom is always on him to stop digging, but that only makes him want to dig more."
-exerpt from "Mexican White Boy #Quote by Matt De La Pena
Trying To Maintain quotes by Jai Courtney
#18. Ideally, really ideally, you want to get to a place where you can have creative control over the material you do - choices, at least, anyway. And you want your choice of script and role. But do you really want your life to revolve around trying to maintain your privacy? #Quote by Jai Courtney
Trying To Maintain quotes by Sizzla
#19. As players of instruments, it is our duty to reach out and give light to those in the dark in whatever way that we can. All my actions are a fulfilment of all the African music genres - I'm only trying to maintain the culture and the tradition. I am a musician. #Quote by Sizzla
Trying To Maintain quotes by Howard Zinn
#20. When economic interest is seen behind the political clauses of the Constitution, then the document becomes not simply the work of wise men trying to establish a decent and orderly society, but the work of certain groups trying to maintain their privileges, while giving just enough rights and liberties to enough of the people to ensure popular support. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Trying To Maintain quotes by Gerald G. May
#21. You will also be tempted to try to hold onto a sense of presence, to make a steady state of it. It will not work. If you are lucky, you'll just miss the moment and be frustrated. If you are successful in holding on, things will be much worse. At some point you will discover that what you are holding is not real; it is something you yourself have contrived. You will also discover that you have been suppressing and deceiving yourself in order to keep it.

. . . In trying to maintain a state, we are naturally expressing our deep desire for wakeful presence in love. But it is a wrong way of expressing it. This way becomes willful so quickly and insidiously that we lose touch with our relationship with grace . . . And grace, thank God, is not dependent upon our state of mind.

Some traditions would disagree with my advice. Much of the spirituality of the early Christian desert, for example, advised using all one's mental strength to hold onto remembrance of Christ. Some Hindu and Buddhist disciplines encourage a similar forcefulness. Such effortful concentration may have a place in monastic settings and can be helpful as a temporary mental stretch before yielding into simple presence. But I do not recommend it as a steady diet for people who live in the world of families, homes, and workplaces. I have tried it myself, and it only created great trouble for me. I became depressed and irritable inside and absolutely obnoxious around friends and family.

#Quote by Gerald G. May
Trying To Maintain quotes by Adyashanti
#22. Trying to maintain a pleasant state and avoid an unpleasant state is actually the cause of sorrow. When you stop resisting, you see that what seems frightening is actually the absolute beauty of reality. When you see that everything is a momentary display of reality, then you stop resisting it. Resistance hurts, only every single time. Love is the state of nonresistance. #Quote by Adyashanti
Trying To Maintain quotes by David Sanborn
#23. I think that that's the way the music grows and changes and becomes new and creative and vital. It's by synthesizing elements from all around it and not to maintain this kind of rigid myopic kind of tunnel vision, in a sense, trying to maintain a certain kind of purity, or whatever. #Quote by David Sanborn
Trying To Maintain quotes by John J. Ratey
#24. From an evolutionary perspective, exercise tricks the brain into trying to maintain itself for survival despite the hormonal cues that it is aging. #Quote by John J. Ratey
Trying To Maintain quotes by Angela Verdenius
#25. Now, Miss Bentley," he said with mock seriousness. "I'll have you know that yes, you are correct, I will always be the master in a relationship. I will always be the master when it comes to sex. I am the man."
Harly was having a hard time trying to maintain her own contrite, meek expression; her quivering lips gave that away. "Yes, Sir."
"See, when I say strip, you strip. When I say come here, you come. When I say kiss me, you kiss me. When I say you're walking around in my presence in nothing but silk stockings and a garter belt and a red satin bra, you will do so."
"Not happening."
"Insubordination will not be tolerated."
"I'll tell my mother."
"I'm not scared of her."
"All right. I'll tell your mother."
"Okay, some insubordination will be tolerated."
"I thought so."
"And when I say get the bondage gear-"
She guffawed right in his face. #Quote by Angela Verdenius
Trying To Maintain quotes by Maya Banks
#26. She smiled then, an adorable, sweet smile that took his breath away. He forgot all about trying to maintain an air of civility. His inner caveman came barreling out, grunting and pounding his chest and muttering unintelligible words. #Quote by Maya Banks
Trying To Maintain quotes by Mark Epstein
#27. In mindfulness meditation, the self that needs protection is put into neutral. The observing self slips into the space between the ego and the dissociated aspects of the personality and observes from there. The breath, or sound, becomes the central object of focus, as opposed to thought. Thinking becomes one more thing to observe in the field of awareness but is robbed of its preeminent position. Do not grasp after the pleasant or push away the unpleasant, but give equal attention to everything there is to observe, taught the Buddha. This is difficult at first but becomes remarkably easy once one gets the hang of it. One learns first to bring one's attention to the neutral object and then to relax into a state of choiceless awareness rather than always trying to maintain control. As the ego's position is weakened, waking life takes on aspects of dream life to the extent that new surprises keep unexpectedly emerging. #Quote by Mark Epstein
Trying To Maintain quotes by Rick Riordan
#28. What-what do you want?" Annabeth asked, trying to maintain a tone of confidence.
The voice cackled maliciously.
'To curse you, of course! To destroy you thousand times in the name of Mother Night!'
"Only a thousand times?" Percy murmured. "Oh, good ... I thought we were in trouble. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Trying To Maintain quotes by Thomas Moore
#29. Today we are all doing penance every day. We're working hard, trying to make money to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table, trying to maintain a good relationship or marriage, trying to keep our children safe and happy and educated, trying to keep the world from blowing itself up. We don't need any more penance. We need some joy, an ideal, encouragement, a philosophy worthy of us, a real community, neighbors to keep us from having to go it alone. We need our own religion: our sources of inspiration, hope, and healing. #Quote by Thomas Moore
Trying To Maintain quotes by Henry S. Reuss
#30. When the U.S. government stops wasting our resources by trying to maintain the price of gold, its price will sink to ... $6 an ounce rather than the current $35 an ounce. #Quote by Henry S. Reuss
Trying To Maintain quotes by Peter Turchin
#31. The collapse of order brings in its wake the four horsemen of the apocalypse - famine, war, pestilence, and death. Population declines, and wages increase, while rents decrease. As incomes of commoners recover, the fortunes of the upper classes hit the bottom. Economic distress of the elites and lack of effective government feed the continuing internecine wars. But civil wars thin the ranks of the elites. Some die in factional fighting, others succumb to feuds with neighbors, and many just give up on trying to maintain their noble status and quietly slip into the ranks of the commoners. Intra-elite competition subsides, allowing order to be restored. Stability and internal peace bring prosperity, and another secular cycle begins. 'So peace brings warre and warre brings peace. #Quote by Peter Turchin
Trying To Maintain quotes by Will Oldham
#32. I valued the experience of making the recordings, and I value the performances contained therein, and I value so much of what they can represent. I also think they're a terrific listening experience. Putting them out this way was a way of trying to maintain and nurture the relationship with the audience and also shine a light on the recent past, because we are so apt to be forgetful as human beings that there was such a thing as a recent past. These are some of the reasons for making this record. #Quote by Will Oldham
Trying To Maintain quotes by Eddie Huang
#33. That's not how you eat hot pot! That's some new-age Taiwanese thing. In Beijing, you don't mis the sauces."
"Son, I'll say this the nicest way I can. I'm Chinese and you're an idiot."(247)
My entire life, the single most interesting thing to me is race in America. how something so stupid as skin or eyes or stinky Chinese lunch as such an impact on a person's identity, their mental state, and the possibility of their happiness. It was race. It was race. Apologies to Frank Sinatra, but I've been called a "[email protected]," a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a pawn, think the idea of America is cool, but at the end of the day wish the world had no lines. (249)
You have tattoos and others have piercings, but for me, there's nothing that says more about me than the food I choose to carry every single day. As a kid trying to maintain my identity in America, my Chinese was passable, my history was shaky, but I could taste something one time and make it myself at home. When everything else fell apart and I didn't know who I was, food brought me back and here I was again. (250)
...
Ironically enough, the one place that America allows Chinese people to do their thing is the kitchen. Just like Jewish people became bankers because that was the only thing Christians let them do, a lot of Chinese people ended up in laundries, delis, and kitchens because that's what was available...get in where you fit in, fool. (250) #Quote by Eddie Huang
Trying To Maintain quotes by Andrew Smith
#34. Hungry Jack's real name was Charles R. Hoofard.
He was born in Indianapolis in 1950.
In 1950, Harry S. Truman was president of the United States.
Harry Truman, as far as I can tell, also never took a shit in his life.
In 1950, the same year that a boy named Charles R. Hoofard was born in Indianapolis, President Harry S. Truman sent military assistance to the French. They were trying to maintain their French Catholic colony in Vietnam. That military aid would grow and blossom to the point that a boy with wanderlust from Indiana named Charles R. Hoofard ultimately took time out from fucking whatever he wanted to fuck to participate in the killing of an entire village of women, elderly people, and children.
History is full of shit like that. #Quote by Andrew Smith
Trying To Maintain quotes by Shakti Gawain
#35. If you are trying to appear calm and collected on the outside when actually you are feeling upset and angry, your children may mirror this to you by becoming wild and disruptive. While you are trying to maintain control, they pick up the chaotic energy inside of you and reflect it in their behavior. If you express directly what you are feeling, without trying to cover it up, they will usually calm down. They feel comfortable with the truth, the congruity between your feelings and your words. This is true of other relationships as well. #Quote by Shakti Gawain
Trying To Maintain quotes by Jackson Pearce
#36. I turn back to them, trying to maintain control of my emotions, trying to keep the two of them from seeing that I'm shaking in sorrow and anger and hurt. #Quote by Jackson Pearce
Trying To Maintain quotes by Carlos Castaneda
#37. In the Art of Dreaming Don Juan tells Carlos, " ... most of our energy goes into upholding our importance ... if we were capable of losing some of that importance, two extraordinary things would happen to us. One, we would free our energy from trying to maintain the illusory idea of our grandeur; and two we would provide ourselves with enough energy to ... catch a glimpse of the actual grandeur of the universe." #Quote by Carlos Castaneda
Trying To Maintain quotes by Lily Zante
#38. walked in slowly, trying to maintain her balance and keep to a straight line but Nadine knew the telltale signs. She watched her sister with trepidation. #Quote by Lily Zante
Trying To Maintain quotes by Albert Cossery
#39. Gohar smiled at the thought of El Kordi, at his exaggeration of his troubles, more fictitious than real, and his constant search for human dignity. "What is most futile in man," he thought, "is this search for dignity." All these people trying to maintain their dignity! For what? The history of mankind is a long, bloody nightmare only because of such nonsense. #Quote by Albert Cossery
Trying To Maintain quotes by Jeff Wise

Trying To Maintain quotes by Leonardo DiCaprio
#41. I don't have emotions about a lot of things. I rarely get angry, I rarely cry. I guess I do get excited a lot, but I don't get sad and enormously happy. I think a lot of people who talk about all that crap are lying. Right now I'm just trying to maintain happiness - that's all I really care about. Anyway, when you're my age and your hormones are kicking in, there's not much besides sex that's on your mind. #Quote by Leonardo DiCaprio
Trying To Maintain quotes by Bill Vaughan
#42. In the game of life, it's a good idea to have a few early losses, which relieves you of the pressure of trying to maintain an undefeated season. #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Trying To Maintain quotes by Carrie Ryan
#43. It all seems so worthless. Such a waste of lives. We've spent hundreds of years since the Return buffering the Dark City and trying to maintain it - scraping out a life that will soon be wiped out.
And what of the rest of the world that's already fallen? Stars blinking away, their light slowly fading? Somewhere out there a star's just dying and we'll never know about it. Somewhere another's being born whose light we'll never see.
The Earth will spin, the stars will rearrange themselves around one another and the world will crawl with the dead who one day will drop into nothing ness: no humans left for them to scent, no flesh for them to crave. Everything-all of us-will simply cease to be. #Quote by Carrie Ryan
Trying To Maintain quotes by Cassandra Clare
#44. I think you ought to let me take poor Tessa into town to get some new clothes. Otherwise, the first time she takes a deep breath, that dress will fall right off her."
Will looked interested. "I think she should try that out now and see what happens. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Trying To Maintain quotes by Boris Johnson
#45. The beauty and riddle in studying the motives of any politician is in trying to decide what is idealism and what is self-interest; and often we are left to conclude that the answer is a mixture of the two. #Quote by Boris Johnson
Trying To Maintain quotes by Nicole Kidman
#46. I'm trying to find a man to share my life with, but it's not been easy. I'm a 35-year-old woman with two small children. #Quote by Nicole Kidman
Trying To Maintain quotes by Susan Mallery
#47. What will you do if you lose your real estate license?"
"I've been trying to figure that out. I need to have a plan. So far, nothing's been coming to me. I was talking to Manny about it and--" She broke off. "Just so you know, Manny doesn't answer."
"Good thing. If he did, I'd worry about you both."
"I would hope so. Anyway, I don't have a plan yet. I always thought I'd stay in LA, but having been out here has shown me that maybe I'd like something different. Fool's Gold seems like a special place." She smiled. "Think I could get a job rustling cattle?"
"Rustling? That's stealing."
"Oh. I mean taking care of them."
"You'd better learn your terms before you apply. #Quote by Susan Mallery
Trying To Maintain quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#48. Option three: Edward loved me. The bond forged between us was not one that could be broken by absence, distance, or time. And no matter how much more special or beautiful or brillant or perfect than me he might me, he was as irreversibly altered as I was. As I would always belong to him, so would he always be mine.
Was that what I'd been trying to tell myself?
"Oh!"
"Bella?"
"Oh. Okay. I see."
"Your epithany?" he asked, his voice uneven and strained.
"You love me," I marveled. The sense of conviction and rightness washed through me again.
Though his eyes were still anxious, the crooked smile I loved best flashed across his face. "Truly, I do. #Quote by Stephenie Meyer
Trying To Maintain quotes by Lisa Scherff
#49. Fostering cultural competence as conceived by Ladson-Billings (1994) is not problematic if mainstream U.S. culture reflects and resonates with students' cultural identities. In the instances in which students' cultural identities and mainstream U.S. culture are not in sync and students' cultural identities are marginalized, this cultural competence "uses student culture in order to maintain it [student culture] and to transcend the negative effects of the dominant culture" (Ladson-Billings 1994, p. 17). #Quote by Lisa Scherff
Trying To Maintain quotes by Coco Chanel
#50. Nothing makes a woman look so old as desperately trying to look young #Quote by Coco Chanel
Trying To Maintain quotes by Ted Turner
#51. The next most dangerous thing [after nuclear proliferation] is probably ... global warming, and then, right behind that are overpopulation
we need to get serious about family planning-and trying to alleviate poverty, to get clean, renewable energy, probably with solar panels to the billion and a half people in the world who don't have access to electricity. #Quote by Ted Turner
Trying To Maintain quotes by Kody Keplinger
#52. The people who call you names are just trying to make themselves feel better. They've fucked up too. You're not the only one. #Quote by Kody Keplinger
Trying To Maintain quotes by Laura E Weymouth
#53. Brave people just bear up under their circumstances and do their best. There's a whole world of people out there, all trying to muddle through. And honestly I don't think heroes are worth more at the end of the day. Sometimes it takes greater courage to learn to live again when you think life's over, than it does to risk it in the first place."
The Light Between Worlds p 299 #Quote by Laura E Weymouth

Trying To Maintain quotes by Timothy Keller

Trying To Maintain quotes by Ahmed Zewail
#57. The U.S. can still maintain research institutions, such as Caltech, that are the envy of the world, yet it would be hubristic and naive to think that this position is sustainable without investing in science education and basic research. #Quote by Ahmed Zewail
Trying To Maintain quotes by Whoopi Goldberg
#58. I don't want anyone killing me with their car. Is that too much to ask? No, it's not. Then why are so many people trying to send me to my early reward with their vehicles? Truly. I can't believe some of the stunts I see pulled out there on the road. I have to say the worst behavior you see from people is when they get a steering wheel in their hands. To the point that I believe that your car is like a brain scan of your personality.
If you are a polite person or just a normal, considerate, going-along-and-along-in-life person, that's pretty evident. You get a smile and a nod from me at the next stoplight.
If you are easily distracted, clumsy, or kind of off in the ozone, we're going to see that too. Please try to keep it off the sidewalk.
And if you are a jackass? Well, trust me, we know. We all know. And the way you carry on, we get plenty of opportunities to comfirm that.
Do you think that when you get inside your car and close the door you become magically invisible? You do not. Not even with those tinted windows you think look so cool. We can see you. And it ain't pretty. #Quote by Whoopi Goldberg
Trying To Maintain quotes by Sanya Richards-Ross
#59. No matter what you're trying to do there will be noise in the market ... Before the race starts, I'm already focused on the victory. #Quote by Sanya Richards-Ross
Trying To Maintain quotes by Patrick O'Brian
#60. The first interviews I gave were entirely unpleasant. You have people trying to trip you up with impolite questions that have nothing to do with the books. It's simply vulgar curiosity, and I won't have it. #Quote by Patrick O'Brian
Trying To Maintain quotes by Lindsey Rietzsch
#61. Forget about trying to "fix" your spouse's flaws. Instead, focus your attention on aspects and characteristics that you enjoy most. #Quote by Lindsey Rietzsch
Trying To Maintain quotes by Mos Def
#62. You're not gonna get through life without being worshipful or devoted to something. You're either devoted to your job, or to your desires. So the best way to spend your life is to try to be devoted to prayer, to Allah. #Quote by Mos Def
Trying To Maintain quotes by Erin Davie
#63. A lot of times, just because people are different, they're judged. I try not to let that concern me. But sometimes it can be hurtful, because I do feel judged sometimes for being a little different. #Quote by Erin Davie
Trying To Maintain quotes by Suzanne Shaw
#64. I was one of those whose school report would always say, 'Could pay more attention.' I spent my time trying to be the centre of attention or the class joker instead of knuckling down. Far from the perfect student. #Quote by Suzanne Shaw
Trying To Maintain quotes by Kristen Callihan
#65. I don't need you to fix me, Stella. I need you for everything else. I need your smiles, your laughter. I need you to be my best friend, my lover, my all. I need to take care of you, touch your skin, make you dinner, give you pleasure whenever you're in need."
I lean in, emotion clogging my throat. "You are the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I'd happily spend the rest of my life trying to be the best thing that has ever happened to you too. #Quote by Kristen Callihan
Trying To Maintain quotes by Thomas Merton
#66. The truth that many people never understand until it is too late is that the more you try to avoid suffering, the more you suffer. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Trying To Maintain quotes by John Taylor Gatto
#67. One of the first things a family tries to teach its children is the difference between good and evil, right and wrong. One of the first things our schools do is destroy that distinction. #Quote by John Taylor Gatto
Trying To Maintain quotes by Jacob Nordby
#68. If you could possibly understand how precious and powerful your experience of this one lifetime as yourself is, you wouldn't be trying to go anywhere else.
If you could know the perfection of time and space,
You would slow each moment down
To drain every possible nuance of juice and flavor from it.
When you leave this place, your body and mind and the earth which holds you, you will look back and only wish you had known the immense richness that you hurried through trying to find other better states of being.
But this is the best bite.
Heaven is here.
Nirvana is now.
As soon as you know that for sure
Your life will never be the same again.
In fact, in every way it seeks to get your attention. begs you to awaken to the magic right before your eyes. #Quote by Jacob Nordby
Trying To Maintain quotes by Dan Uggla
#69. Any way I can produce runs and keep runs off the board for the other team, that's what I'm going to try to do. #Quote by Dan Uggla
Trying To Maintain quotes by Daniel Greenfield
#70. CAIR is still trying to promote its strange claim that criticism of its ideology is racist....The ridiculous claims that criticism of Islam is an act of bigotry fail to take into account the fact that former Muslims like Bosch, Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Firoozeh Bazrafkan have been some of the sharpest critics of the ideology. Did they also change races? #Quote by Daniel Greenfield
Trying To Maintain quotes by Dallas Roberts
#71. I try my damnedest to quirk up anything that I'm in. #Quote by Dallas Roberts
Trying To Maintain quotes by Jaye Wells
#72. The what?"
"Lone Wolves." He turned to show me the back of his raggedy jacket. Sure enough, a snarling wolf face stared back at me from the leather.
"Wait a second," I said. "Isn't it supposed to be 'Lone Wolf' as in, you know, one? If there's more than one, then it kind of defeats the purpose of being 'lone', doesn't it?"
The leader squinted hard, as if trying to follow my logic and getting lost. #Quote by Jaye Wells
Trying To Maintain quotes by Charlie Norwood
#73. What we're really trying to do is level out the health care system. It has gotten so one-sided as more and more people have been put into managed care; in fact, about 70 percent of the patients in the country. #Quote by Charlie Norwood
Trying To Maintain quotes by Jay Woodman
#74. Love yourself enough to give what matters every chance of working by communicating as well as you possibly can, and trying for as long as you wish. #Quote by Jay Woodman
Trying To Maintain quotes by Sawyer Bennett
#75. First, I'm not pestering you. I'm trying to make it clear that I want to fuck you into oblivion. Second, there is no other woman that I'm interested in. Clear enough for you? #Quote by Sawyer Bennett
Trying To Maintain quotes by Lemony Snicket
#76. When someone is crying, of course, the noble thing to do is to comfort them. But if someone is trying to hide their tears, it may also be noble to pretend you do not notice them. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Trying To Maintain quotes by Vladimir Lenin
#77. One must always try to be as radical as reality itself. #Quote by Vladimir Lenin
Trying To Maintain quotes by Atom Egoyan
#78. It was very important that it be done in such a way that it be executed with complete conviction. If I had done it both ways, if I was trying to cover myself in case it didn't work, then it would have been to no purpose. #Quote by Atom Egoyan
Trying To Maintain quotes by E.L. Doctorow
#79. Somehow he had catapulted himself beyond the world's value system. But this very fact lay upon him an awesome responsibility to maintain the illusions of other men. #Quote by E.L. Doctorow
Trying To Maintain quotes by Rabih Alameddine
#80. Before prognostication, a disclaimer: I have never been able to pick a winner. Not that it has ever stopped me from trying to. Well, it has stopped me from buying stock, but let's not talk about that. #Quote by Rabih Alameddine
Trying To Maintain quotes by Brittainy C. Cherry
#81. And nail about it because you think it's meaningless, but the next thing you know you're sitting in a library staring at books filled with pictures of abstract artwork and your heart feels ready to explode." Levi turned to me as I stepped out from behind the corner. Our eyes locked, and he kept speaking. "Because you get it, you know? You get that the colors and the lines and the curves aren't trying to be like everything else in the world. You understand that the abstract art is standing out against the norm because it's the only way abstract art knows how to stand. And you get so fucking happy because it's so beautiful. And unique. And edgy. And ... abstract." The room filled with silence as the three of us stood with no words #Quote by Brittainy C. Cherry
Trying To Maintain quotes by Seanan McGuire
#82. Quentin quieted and watched her for a moment, hungrily, like he was trying to memorize every detail. Maybe he was. Forever is a long time. You have to burn the edges of memory onto your heart, or they can fade, and sometimes the second loss is worse than the first one. #Quote by Seanan McGuire
Trying To Maintain quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#83. He thought of nothing, wished for nothing, but not to be left behind the peasants, and to do his work as well as possible. He heard nothing but the swish of scythes, and saw before him Tit's upright figure mowing away, the crescent-shaped curve of the cut grass, the grass and flower heads slowly and rhythmically falling before the blade of his scythe, and ahead of him the end of the row, where would come the rest.

Suddenly, in the midst of his toil, without understanding what it was or whence it came, he felt a pleasant sensation of chill on his hot, moist shoulders. He glanced at the sky in the interval for whetting the scythes. A heavy, lowering storm cloud had blown up, and big raindrops were falling. Some of the peasants went to their coats and put them on; others--just like Levin himself--merely shrugged their shoulders, enjoying the pleasant coolness of it.

Another row, and yet another row, followed--long rows and short rows, with good grass and with poor grass. Levin lost all sense of time, and could not have told whether it was late or early now. A change began to come over his work, which gave him immense satisfaction. In the midst of his toil there were moments during which he forgot what he was doing, and it came all easy to him, and at those same moments his row was almost as smooth and well cut as Tit's. But so soon as he recollected what he was doing, and began trying to do better, he was at once conscious of all the difficulty of his task, #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Trying To Maintain quotes by Ruth Ware
#84. All I saw were flaws- the spots on my chin, the hint of baby fat around the jaw, the way my unruly flyaway hair wisped out from the elastic band.

"Look," he said. "The reason it's not coming together is because you're drawing the features, not the person. You're more than a collection of frown lines and doubts. The person I see when I look at you..." He stopped and I waited, feeling his eyes on me, trying not to squirm beneath the intensity of his gaze. "I see someone brave," he said at last. "I see someone who's trying very hard. I see someone who's nervous, but stronger than she knows. I see someone who's worried but doesn't need to be."

"Draw that." " Draw the person I see. #Quote by Ruth Ware
Trying To Maintain quotes by John Green
#85. I'm wondering how many times he can possibly use the word alliance in one sentence when Tiny Cooper cuts Mr. Fortson off by saying, "Hey, wait, Jane, you're straight?"
And she nods without realign looking up and then mumbles, "I mean, I think so, anyway."
"You should date Grayson," Tiny says. "He thinks you're super cute."
If i were stand on a scale fully dressed, sopping wet, holding ten-pound dumbbells in each hand and balancing a stack of hardcover books on my head, I'd weigh about 180 pounds, which is approximately equal to the weight of Tiny Cooper's left tricep. But in this moment, I could beat the holy living shit out of Tiny Cooper. And I would, I swear to God, except I'm too busy trying to disappear. #Quote by John Green
Trying To Maintain quotes by Seth Godin
#86. Teaching Fire a Lesson
Fire is hot. That's what it does. If you get burned by fire, you can be annoyed at yourself, but being angry at fire doesn't do you much good. And trying to teach the fire a lesson so it won't be hot next time is certainly not time well spent.
Our inclination is to give fire a pass, because it's not human. But human beings are similar, in that they're not going to change any time soon either. #Quote by Seth Godin
Trying To Maintain quotes by Anne McCaffrey
#87. Tell a story! Don't try to impress your reader with style or vocabulary or neatly turned phrases. Tell the story first! #Quote by Anne McCaffrey
Trying To Maintain quotes by Kaui Hart Hemmings
#88. We continue to eat, the conversation easy and flowing. I listen to everything everyone says, an urgency to pay attention, to not miss these moments you don't know are moments until they're gone. I narrow in, trying to hold it all in place, even though I think that if you document life this way, the moments will never set. We don't need to remember. Everything just becomes a part of you. And then it's over. #Quote by Kaui Hart Hemmings
Trying To Maintain quotes by Paul McHugh
#89. Maybe it's wrong-footed trying to fit people into the world, rather than trying to make the world a better place for people.
[as quoted in "Brain Gain" by Margaret Talbot, The New Yorker, 4/27/09 issue] #Quote by Paul McHugh
Trying To Maintain quotes by Kate Jacobs
#90. It's all about getting the hand of things. Easy does it; take it easy. You'll figure everything out in time. But for right now, just keep trying. Pay attention and avoid the temptation to go further than you're ready. Talk less. And listen more. #Quote by Kate Jacobs
Trying To Maintain quotes by Bob Newhart
#91. A lot of money is spent trying to keep people alive who don't necessarily want to be alive. #Quote by Bob Newhart
Trying To Maintain quotes by Kenny Chesney
#92. As a songwriter, you're never off - for me, anyway. There's a certain mentality of people that decide, "Oh, we're going to try to write songs from this time of the day to this time of the day." Almost treat it like a real job. I can't do that. I've never been able to write songs like that. You never know when something creative is going to hit you, or emotion or whatever. You can take it, and turn it into something that makes somebody feel something. I love that about my job. #Quote by Kenny Chesney
