Uncommon Sense quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#1. You're either part of the problem or part of the solution. There are no bystanders who get to claim no impact. What mark will you leave on this world? #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Uncommon Sense quotes by Patrick Lencioni
#2. The kind of trust that is necessary to build a great team is what I call vulnerability-based trust. This is what happens when members get to a point where they are completely comfortable being transparent, honest, and naked with one another, where they say and genuinely mean things like "I screwed up," "I need help," "Your idea is better than mine," "I wish I could learn to do that as well as you do," and even, "I'm sorry." When everyone on a team knows that everyone else is vulnerable enough to say and mean those things, and that no one is going to hide his or her weaknesses or mistakes, they develop a deep and uncommon sense of trust. They speak more freely and fearlessly with one another and don't waste time and energy putting on airs or pretending to be someone they're not. Over time, this creates a bond that exceeds what many people ever experience in their lives and, #Quote by Patrick Lencioni
Uncommon Sense quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#3. You will always be my teachers, just as much or more than I am yours. Do not think – nor let anyone convince you – that because of your age or your lack of experience that you do not hold wisdom beyond comprehension. You are wise enough to change the entire world in this movement, right now. Just as you are. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Uncommon Sense quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#4. You own your body. You own your body. You own your body. Your center and your edges are yours and yours alone. In this world – this world of rape culture of ingrained misogyny and violence done against girls and women – you will encounter and absorb messages your entire life that place you on trial for the crime of existing as female in this world. That will question your right to wear or speak or move through the world in the way that you do. That will seek to harm you in ways large and small. As a woman, you will hold stories that sometimes feel too painful to hold. As your mother, that brings me to my knees. I grant you the strength to know that this too, you will survive. I promise you I will protect you with every ounce of life in my body. And where I cannot protect you from this world, I will love you inside of it – fierce and holy and precious beyond all knowing. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Uncommon Sense quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#5. We are not meant to live in isolation. Not in nuclear families or bubbled existence. The richness of life is found in community, in cooperation, in becoming a part of a greater whole. Expand your bubble, drop your shield. Invite love in. Do not attempt to do it alone. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Uncommon Sense quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#6. Butterflies are beautiful, but the process of emerging from the chrysalis and spreading your wings can hurt like fucking hell. But still, you will survive the transformation (over and over again) and you will fly. Remember this when it hurts the most. This is the metamorphosis, the going down to liquid, and the rising again. It's no joke – but damn, it's one hell of a journey. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Uncommon Sense quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#7. Because like the depths of the ocean that calls you home, you will never be easy.

But darling, you were not brought here for easy. You are here for so much more.

Because you are a boundary pusher.

You're a truth seeker.

You're temptation and seduction and heat.

You're a mirror and a sorcerer and inside you swirls the power of the ancients.

So no, you are not easy.

But in the space of that truth – please also know this. Do not get this confused with the notion that you do not deserve the deepest ease. Don't for a minute let them convince you that you will not know the grace of a lover who does not require that you constantly translate yourself or diminish yourself or quiet your storm or tone down your extravagant love.

Because that, my girl, is bullshit. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Uncommon Sense quotes by Mango Wodzak
#8. Sometimes I think humans have a common sense that completely defies logic. #Quote by Mango Wodzak
Uncommon Sense quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#9. If a man can have only one kind of sense, let him have common sense. If he has that and uncommon sense too, he is not far from genius. #Quote by Henry Ward Beecher
Uncommon Sense quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#10. Even at the farthest reaches of empathy, we do not and cannot share the lived experience of another. We can never fully know the pain or betrayal a body and spirit has been made to hold in this life, or the way the universe articulates itself through the living of another. And in the knowing of that truth, we cannot ever say what anyone should or must forgive, or how they should handle something or what it takes for them to survive or the way they should heal or when or how or who or why. This this journey is an individual one, and should only ever be exactly that. Do not ever be tempted to project your own knowing onto the experience of another, or to prescribe your path onto their own. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Uncommon Sense quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#11. You are not too much. You have never been too much. You will never be too much. The very idea is preposterous. Because you were born to be you. All of you. Not a tiny acceptable sliver. Not a watered down version with colors dulled and edges softened. No. You were meant to be every last pulsing-bleeding-loving-crying-feeling bit. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Uncommon Sense quotes by Bryant H. McGill
#12. The only thing you will get from common sense, is a common life. Be uncommon and have uncommon sense. #Quote by Bryant H. McGill
Uncommon Sense quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#13. Do not settle for living a version of your life designed by another. You are not meant to be gatekeeper or the holder of secrets and shame. You are here to live free and clear and into your own wide open truth. If you are spending too much time around people who expect otherwise you will begin to notice a feeling of constriction. Sometimes the life we create can be come a cage of our own making. Sometimes we stifle our truths to make others comfortable. Do not sacrifice your own comfort and freedom for that of another. The price you pay for this is too high. Define your own space. Remember your own divinity. You have a responsibility to this existence to live in fullness of your truth and art and purpose. Do not be diminished by circumstance or opinion or judgement. Your story is your own; nobody can write it but you. You hold the paper, you choose the pen, and you write your life story the way only you can. So, if someone tries to build you a box, rip that fucker apart and use the wood to build yourself a stage, then ditch your indoor voice and sing it loud. People are not meant to live quietly in small containers no matter how beautiful. A gilded cage is still confinement. You are a wild child – only the open air of freedom will do. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Uncommon Sense quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#14. Uncommon sense is common nonsense. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Uncommon Sense quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#15. The art of a sincere and heartfelt apology is one of the greatest skills you will ever learn. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Uncommon Sense quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#16. You will quite likely encounter the notion that we create our own reality. This can be an empowering idea and also true is so many ways. But it is also entitled and arrogant and can quickly move into a dangerous form of gaslighting. When this happens it is an act of shaming and a violence done. Because fucked up things happen. Fucked up and violent things. And to say that we create the entirely of our own realities is a way this world will have people- especially marginalized groups of people – hold responsibility for the circumstances in which they were without power. Guard yourself against perpetuating this, and hold yourself tenderly and solidly if it is ever pushed upon you. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Uncommon Sense quotes by Aristotle.
#17. Now we say that (a) the continuous is one or that (b) the indivisible is one, or (c) things are said to be 'one', when their essence is one and the same, as 'liquor' and 'drink'. If (a) their One is one in the sense of continuous, it is many, (10) for the continuous is divisible ad infinitum. #Quote by Aristotle.
Uncommon Sense quotes by Paulo Coelho
#18. In order for agape to flourish, I must not be afraid to change my life. If I liked what I was doing, very well. But if I did not, there was always the time for a change. If I allowed change to occur, I would be transforming myself into a fertile field and allowing the Creative Imagination to sow its seeds in me.
"Everything I have taught you, include agape, makes sense only if you are satisfied with yourself. If you are not, then the exercises you have learned are inevitably going to make you seek change. And if you do not want all of those exercises to work against you, you have to allow change to happen.
"This is the most difficult moment in a person's life
when the person witnesses the good fight and is unable to change and join the battle. When this happens, knowledge turns against the person who holds it. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Uncommon Sense quotes by James Thurber
#19. Speed is scarcely the noblest virtue of graphic composition, but it has its curious rewards. There is a sense of getting somewhere fast, which satisfies a native American urge. #Quote by James Thurber
Uncommon Sense quotes by Neal Shusterman
#20. And perhaps you can sense, in some small twisting loop of your gut, the convergence of the wrong, of the right, and of the woefully misguided. If you do, then pay sharp attention to the moment you wake, and the moment you fall asleep ... For maybe then you will know, without a shadow of a doubt, which is which. #Quote by Neal Shusterman
Uncommon Sense quotes by Robert Gately
#21. Scientist's intellect is their ship as they navigate through the treacherous waters of detail where, hopefully, their good sense and rationale leads them to truth. Religious leaders already have the truth and those tenants that are not well-defined don't need a defense because faith shields them from the onslaught of details and facts."
- Fillossofee, Messages from a Grandfather - an ebook #Quote by Robert Gately
Uncommon Sense quotes by Joe Anderson
#22. With 'The Crazies,' we had a lot of room to play and manipulate and change things. When you get something bigger, you have less control in that sense unless you're one of the three stars. #Quote by Joe Anderson
Uncommon Sense quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#23. As we have seen, the first public expression of disenchantment with nonviolence arose around the question of 'self-defense.' In a sense this is a false issue, for the right to defend one's home and one's person when attacked has been guaranteed through the ages by common law. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Uncommon Sense quotes by Kevin Spacey
#24. I think that when you put yourself, as actors have to do, in other people's shoes, when you have to put on the costume that someone else has worn in their life, it gets much, much harder to be prejudiced against them and even to be - to not try to look at the world in a sense of "I'm not going to judge somebody. I'm going to try to understand who they are and what they're about." #Quote by Kevin Spacey
Uncommon Sense quotes by Christine Kenneally
#25. Because the light of evolution is not instantaneous or blinding, it is difficult to visualize the immensely slow and gradual change that is brought about by mutation and natural selection. When you consider a protozoan cell or an amphibian, on the one hand, and dolphins or, say, commuters, on the other, there is no intuitive way to make sense of the line that runs from one form of life to the next.

The popular cartoon of evolution, where the ape slowly unbends, straightens up, starts walking, and mutates into some form of modern-day human, is probably the easiest way to think about it. But [...] this caricature is misleading. Evolution does not follow the course of a single line. The tree of life bristles with stems, boughs, and branches. Most lines from one form to another are densely surrounded by branches leading to different species or dead ends. #Quote by Christine Kenneally
Uncommon Sense quotes by Lisa Genova
#26. I offered to pass along information about NEHSA to Heidi so she can let her patients know about it. I don't have any scientific or clinical data to back this up, but I think snow-boarding is the most effective rehabilitative tool I've experienced. It forces me to focus on my abilities and not my disability, to overcome huge obstacles, both physical and psychological, to stay up on that board and get down the mountain in one piece. And each time I get down the mountain in one piece, I gain a real confidence and sense of independence I haven't felt anywhere else since the accident, a sense of true well-being that stays with me well beyond the weekend. And whether snowboarding with NEHSA has a measurable and lasting therapeutic effect for people like me or not, it's a lot more fun than drawing cats and picking red balls up off a tray #Quote by Lisa Genova
Uncommon Sense quotes by Eric Mrozek
#27. I sense that you are nearby, son and daughter of the Almari bloodline. I will soon come for you both. #Quote by Eric Mrozek
Uncommon Sense quotes by Armando Lucas Correa
#28. In the end, the scent of books, even of autumn, depends on our sense of smell. #Quote by Armando Lucas Correa
Uncommon Sense quotes by Plato
#29. For a man must have intelligence of universals, and be able to proceed from the many particulars of sense to one conception of reason;
this is the recollection of those things which our soul once saw while following God
when regardless of that which we now call being she raised her head up towards the true being. And therefore the mind of the philosopher alone has wings; and this is just, for he is always, according to the measure of his abilities, clinging in recollection to those things in which God abides, and in beholding which He is what He is. And he who employs aright these memories is ever being initiated into perfect mysteries and alone becomes truly perfect. But, as he forgets earthly interests and is rapt in the divine, the vulgar deem him mad, and rebuke him; they do not see that he is inspired. #Quote by Plato
Uncommon Sense quotes by Livy
#30. The law proposed by Valerius forbade that anyone who had appealed should be scourged with rods or beheaded, but if the law was disregarded on either point it did no more than term it 'a wicked deed'. Such was the sense of shame amongst men at that time that this, I suppose, was thought to impose a legal sanction which would be sufficiently binding. Today hardly anyone would seriously utter such a threat. #Quote by Livy
Uncommon Sense quotes by Guy Gavriel Kay
#31. I don't know a writer who doesn't feel some sense of glamour and magic and a complex, wistful sadness emanating from the expats of the twenties in France. Some of the sadness, of course, is that we weren't there. #Quote by Guy Gavriel Kay
Uncommon Sense quotes by Elizabeth Gaskell
#32. How was it that he haunted her imagination so persistently? What could it be? Why did she care for what he thought, in spite of all her pride in spite of herself? She believed that she could have borne the sense of Almighty displeasure, because He knew all, and could read her penitence, and hear her cries for help in time to come. But Mr.Thornton-why did she tremble, and hide her face in the pillow? What strong feeling had overtaking her at last? #Quote by Elizabeth Gaskell
Uncommon Sense quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#33. If you couldn't sense heat, you'd not be alive. And if that heat never grew uncomfortable, you would never move. And if you were stagnant - unchallenged by unpredictable flares - you would never grow capable of shielding yourself from harsher flames. So yes, life was meant to drag you straight through the fire. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Uncommon Sense quotes by Spike Milligan
#34. Busty' Roberts had joined the Royal Artillery in 1914 and since then had steadily risen to the rank of Gunner. Now the crunch: someone with a perverted sense of humour made him a Lance Bombardier. Roberts went insane with power. The war now consisted of two people, him and Hitler. #Quote by Spike Milligan
Uncommon Sense quotes by Agnes Varda
#35. I cannot plan anything. I have to have the desire to make a film. Then it's a joy. You have to pick something you believe in. You have to believe it's worth it, and that it makes sense for you to do it. If I don't have that much passion, I won't work. #Quote by Agnes Varda
Uncommon Sense quotes by Stefan Zweig
#36. He was, like everyone of a strongly erotic disposition, twice as good, twice as much himself when he knew that women liked him, just as many actors find their most ardent vein when they sense that they have cast their spell over the audience, the breathing mass of spectators before them. #Quote by Stefan Zweig
Uncommon Sense quotes by Johann Georg Hamann
#37. Nature is a book, a letter, a fairy tale (in the philosophical sense) or whatever you want to call it. #Quote by Johann Georg Hamann
Uncommon Sense quotes by Etienne Gilson
#38. Why are there organized beings? Why is there something rather than nothing? Here again, I fully understand a scientist who refuses to ask it. He is welcome to tell me that the question does not make sense. Scientifically speaking, it does not. Metaphysically speaking, however, it does. Science can account for many things in the world; it may some day account for all that which the world of phenomena actually is. But why anything at all is, or exists, science knows not, precisely because it cannot even ask the question. #Quote by Etienne Gilson
Uncommon Sense quotes by Paul Hawken
#39. We assume that everything's becoming more efficient, and in an immediate sense that's true; our lives are better in many ways. But that improvement has been gained through a massively inefficient use of natural resources. #Quote by Paul Hawken
Uncommon Sense quotes by Helene Wecker
#40. He'd never asked her whether she would prefer to have a master again, and now the thought of such a conversation made his throat tighten. In a sense it would be like asking someone whether they'd like to escape their present difficulties by killing themselves #Quote by Helene Wecker
Uncommon Sense quotes by William Penn
#41. Sense shines with double lustre when set in humility. #Quote by William Penn
Uncommon Sense quotes by David Bentley Hart
#42. God, understood in this proper sense, is essentially beyond finite comprehension; #Quote by David Bentley Hart
Uncommon Sense quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#43. Our ability to detect and measure the passage of time is burdensome. The conception and sensation of time bears down upon all of us. It weighs us down; it compresses our souls. There is a variety of ways to escape the dull passage of time or the fearfulness of our accelerating march towards death. We must choose our mechanisms for dealing with the inexorability of time and our finiteness. We can fill our void with work or pleasure, laughter or pain, and fretfulness or courage. We can seek a sense of purposefulness or acknowledge the meaninglessness of life. We can seek to escape the drudgery and pain of life through alcohol, drugs, or pleasure seeking, or by working to support our families and create artistic testaments to our worldly existence. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Uncommon Sense quotes by Elliott Erwitt
#44. You must have a visual sense if you want to be a photographer. It is a very subtle thing, this visual business. #Quote by Elliott Erwitt
Uncommon Sense quotes by Doreen Virtue
#45. If you have a sense that anyone is draining your energy, mentally cut the etheric psychic cord between you and the other person. Be willing to forgive that other person for seemingly draining you, and release the other person fully to the light, now. Completely let go of focusing on personalities of other people and ourselves, and focus, instead, on the true oneness of your spirit. #Quote by Doreen Virtue
Uncommon Sense quotes by Julia Quinn
#46. He knew well the singularly strange sensation of loving one's family to distraction, and yet not feeling quite able to share one's deepest and most intractable fears. It brought on an uncanny sense of isolation, of being remarkably alone in a loud and loving crowd.

-Anthony's thoughts #Quote by Julia Quinn
Uncommon Sense quotes by Nicholas Chong
#47. Eros, who was awakened when the girdle was cast aside, thought it unfitting that the Goddess of Love should turn herself into a Goddess of War, since that post was already filled by Athena. On the other hand, a battle between the Goddess of Love with the God of War also did not make sense, as they should either make love or make war & indulge either in love-games or war-games. For how could one party make love whilst the other make war at the same time? For it took two parties to either make love or make war.
And thus Eros decided to turn Mars into the God of Hate to see whether a battle between Love & Hate could produce Chaos, since Love & Chaos were one & so were Hate & Chaos. And thus Eros sent Phobos & Deimos to Mars, to turn the God of War into the God of Hate. #Quote by Nicholas Chong
