I am sure it is one's duty as a teacher to try to show boys that no opinions no tastes no emotions are worth much unless they are one's own. I suffered acutely as a boy from the lack of being shown this.

A J Langer | trust quotes

The pattern of a newspaperman's life is like the plot of 'Black Beauty.' Sometimes he finds a kind master who gives him a dry stall and an occasional bran mash in the form of a Christmas bonus sometimes he falls into the hands of a mean owner who drives him in spite of spavins and expects him to live on potato peelings.

A J Liebling | beauty quotes

An Englishman teaching an American about food is like the blind leading the one-eyed.

A J Liebling | food quotes

If the first requisite for writing well about food is a good appetite the second is to put in your apprenticeship as a feeder when you have enough money to pay the check but not enough to produce indifference of the total.

Southern political personalities like sweet corn travel badly. They lose flavor with every hundred yards away from the patch.

We cannot have peace if we are only concerned with peace. War is not an accident. It is the logical outcome of a certain way of life. If we want to attack war we have to attack that way of life.

A J Muste | peace quotes

He was what I often think is a dangerous thing for a statesman to be - a student of history and like most of those who study history he learned from the mistakes of the past how to make new ones.

A J P Taylor | history quotes

There is nothing more agreeable in life than to make peace with the Establishment - and nothing more corrupting.

A J P Taylor | peace quotes

When Christians start thinking about Jesus things start breaking down they lose their faith. It's perfectly possible to go to church every Sunday and not ask any questions just because you like it as a way of life.

A N Wilson | faith quotes

I had lost faith in biography.

A N Wilson | faith quotes

I am shy to admit that I have followed the advice given all those years ago by a wise archbishop to a bewildered young man: that moments of unbelief 'don't matter ' that if you return to a practice of the faith faith will return.

The death of any man aged 56 is very sad for his widow and family. And no one would deny that Steve Jobs was a brilliant and highly innovative technician with great business flair and marketing ability.

A N Wilson | family quotes

The Royal Family are not like you and me. They live in houses so big that you can walk round all day and never need to meet your spouse. The Queen and Prince Philip have never shared a bedroom in their lives. They don't even have breakfast together.

A N Wilson | family quotes

A N Wilson | fear quotes

If you read about Mussolini or Stalin or some of these other great monsters of history they were at it all the time that they were getting up in the morning very early. They were physically very active. They didn't eat lunch.

A N Wilson | history quotes

I suppose if I'd got a brilliant first and done research I might still be a don today but I hope not. People become dons because they are incapable of doing anything else in life.

A N Wilson | hope quotes

In the past I used to counter any such notions by asking myself: 'Would you really want President Hattersley?' I now find that possibility rather cheers me up. With his chubby Dickensian features and his knowledge of T.H. Green and other harmless leftish political classics Hattersley might not be such a bad thing after all.

A N Wilson | knowledge quotes

The latest research has revealed that women have a higher IQ than men.

A N Wilson | men quotes

If you read about Mussolini or Stalin or some of these other great monsters of history they were at it all the time that they were getting up in the morning very early. They were physically very active. They didn't eat lunch.

A N Wilson | morning quotes

I should prefer to have a politician who regularly went to a massage parlour than one who promised a laptop computer for every teacher.

A N Wilson | politics quotes

I do not find it easy to articulate thoughts about religion. I remain the sort of person who turns off 'Thought for the Day' when it comes on the radio.

A N Wilson | religion quotes

When Christians start thinking about Jesus things start breaking down they lose their faith. It's perfectly possible to go to church every Sunday and not ask any questions just because you like it as a way of life.

A N Wilson | religion quotes

Like many people in Britain I have an affectionate respect for the Queen and am surprised that I should be having such republican thoughts.

A N Wilson | respect quotes

The death of any man aged 56 is very sad for his widow and family. And no one would deny that Steve Jobs was a brilliant and highly innovative technician with great business flair and marketing ability.

A N Wilson | sad quotes

In the 18th century James Hargreaves invented the Spinning Jenny and Richard Arkwright pioneered the water-propelled spinning frame which led to the mass production of cotton. This was truly revolutionary. The cotton manufacturers created a whole new class of people - the urban proletariat. The structure of society itself would never be the same.

A N Wilson | society quotes

Brain power improves by brain use just as our bodily strength grows with exercise. And there is no doubt that a large proportion of the female population from school days to late middle age now have very complicated lives indeed.

A N Wilson | strength quotes

Nearly all monster stories depend for their success on Jack killing the Giant Beowulf or St. George slaying the Dragon Harry Potter triumphing over the basilisk. That is their inner grammar and the whole shape of the story leads towards it.

A N Wilson | success quotes

I very much dislike the intolerance and moralism of many Christians and feel more sympathy with Honest Doubters than with them.

A N Wilson | sympathy quotes

I should prefer to have a politician who regularly went to a massage parlour than one who promised a laptop computer for every teacher.

A N Wilson | teacher quotes

Truth comes to us mediated by human love.

A N Wilson | truth quotes

I don't think you can tell the objective truth about a person. That's why people write novels.

A N Wilson | truth quotes

Of all liars the most arrogant are biographers: those who would have us believe having surveyed a few boxes full of letters diaries bank statements and photographs that they can play at the recording angel and tell the whole truth about another human life.

A N Wilson | truth quotes

The latest research has revealed that women have a higher IQ than men.

A N Wilson | women quotes

Justice is never given it is exacted and the struggle must be continuous for freedom is never a final fact but a continuing evolving process to higher and higher levels of human social economic political and religious relationship.

A Philip Randolph | freedom quotes

Justice is never given it is exacted and the struggle must be continuous for freedom is never a final fact but a continuing evolving process to higher and higher levels of human social economic political and religious relationship.

A Philip Randolph | truth quotes

Is it not careless to become too local when there are four hundred billion stars in our galaxy alone.

A R Ammons | alone quotes

Everything is discursive opinion instead of direct experience.

A R Ammons | experience quotes

Even if you walk exactly the same route each time - as with a sonnet - the events along the route cannot be imagined to be the same from day to day as the poet's health sight his anticipations moods fears thoughts cannot be the same.

A R Ammons | health quotes

If we ask a vague question such as 'What is poetry?' we expect a vague answer such as 'Poetry is the music of words ' or 'Poetry is the linguistic correction of disorder.'

A R Ammons | poetry quotes

Probably all the attention to poetry results in some value though the attention is more often directed to lesser than to greater values.

A R Ammons | poetry quotes

I am grateful for - though I can't keep up with - the flood of articles theses and textbooks that mean to share insight concerning the nature of poetry.

A R Ammons | poetry quotes

Once every five hundred years or so a summary statement about poetry comes along that we can't imagine ourselves living without.

A R Ammons | poetry quotes

Poetry leads us to the unstructured sources of our beings to the unknown and returns us to our rational structured selves refreshed.

A R Ammons | poetry quotes

The poet exposes himself to the risk. All that has been said about poetry all that he has learned about poetry is only a partial assurance.

A R Ammons | poetry quotes

That's a wonderful change that's taken place and so most poetry today is published if not directly by the person certainly by the enterprise of the poet himself working with his friends.

A R Ammons | poetry quotes

Besides the actual reading in class of many poems I would suggest you do two things: first while teaching everything you can and keeping free of it teach that poetry is a mode of discourse that differs from logical exposition.

A R Ammons | poetry quotes

The past actually happened but history is only what someone wrote down.

A Whitney Brown | history quotes

That is the saving grace of humor if you fail no one is laughing at you.

Lawyers are the first refuge of the incompetent.

Aaron Allston | legal quotes

My favorite thing about being famous... it's not really as big of a deal as everybody says it is. Being on the road is tough doing interviews and all the stuff. It's still pretty tough.

Aaron Carter | famous quotes

Music is something that always lifts my spirits and makes me happy and when I make music I always hope it will have the same effect on whoever listens to it.

Aaron Carter | hope quotes

Love shouldn't be about jealousy or anything like that. It should be about commitment and being able to trust that person. If you can't have that from the get-go there's a problem.

Aaron Carter | jealousy quotes

I would forgive my mom but she's going to have to admit she did some things that were wrong.

Aaron Carter | mom quotes

Love shouldn't be about jealousy or anything like that. It should be about commitment and being able to trust that person. If you can't have that from the get-go there's a problem.

Through all the relationship stuff I've gone through in the past few years I know there are fundamental differences in how men and women view sex and how they view their futures.

Aaron Neville | religion quotes

It's a 360-degree sound experience. Like you're in the middle of the band. A lot of people have the technology to play the format so why not put it out there. It sounds great.

Aaron Neville | technology quotes

Yeah I left Idaho at 17. You know I graduated high school a year early and just you know the typical story packed up my car and moved out.

Aaron Paul | car quotes

Latin food suffers like Chinese. You can do marginal Chinese and be successful. You can do crappy Mexican and be packed.

Aaron Sanchez | food quotes

My mother and my grandmother are pioneers of Mexican cuisine in this country so I grew up in the kitchen. My mom Zarela Martinez was by far my biggest influence and inspiration - and toughest critic.

Aaron Sanchez | mom quotes

It's populated by people who by and large have terrific communication skills. Every day is an extraordinary day. For me it was just a great area for storytelling.

Aaron Sorkin | communication quotes

A show that no one thought had a chance has just finished its fifth year: Charmed. I think it's tougher for the younger networks so I think they have a little more patience for the sake of the show. But who knows?

Aaron Spelling | patience quotes

Being around some of the bright lights of the technology world and having them expect great things helps you sit down and do it seriously.

Aaron Swartz | technology quotes

I didn't grow up a theatre kid going to theatre camps. I played sports and that was my main direction. But luckily I never had to choose between sports and theatre.

Aaron Tveit | sports quotes

I think there is a real misconception about Indian food being super spicy. And I know that's because when you go into an Indian restaurant it is pretty spicy. But it doesn't have to be. In fact my husband can't handle a lot of heat. I've had to temper my cooking so that he can eat with me.

Aarti Sequeira | food quotes

I think Islam has been hijacked by the idea that all Muslims are terrorists that Islam is about hate about war about jihad - I think that hijacks the spirituality and beauty that exists within Islam. I believe in allowing Islam to be seen in context and in its entirety and being judged on what it really is not what you think it is.

Aasif Mandvi | beauty quotes

When I was 11 my friend's mom made a peanut butter sandwich. I ate the sandwich and was like 'I'm never eating anything else again.' And I still eat peanut butter every day. I would put peanut butter on a steak.

History teaches us that men and nations behave wisely once they have exhausted all other alternatives.

Abba Eban | history quotes

I think that this is the first war in history that on the morrow the victors sued for peace and the vanquished called for unconditional surrender.

Abba Eban | peace quotes

It is our experience that political leaders do not always mean the opposite of what they say.

Abba Eban | politics quotes

I would be too selfish if I said everyone should see my movies more than once. To say that would mean I'm just marketing my work!

Abbas Kiarostami | movies quotes

Some movies bring out the creativity in you. Every single audience member can become creative in the face of a particular movie. If you happen to like my films it's because my films provide a bed for you on which you can find your creativity. The Hollywood movies do not provide that for you.

Abbas Kiarostami | movies quotes

In the total darkness poetry is still there and it is there for you.

Abbas Kiarostami | poetry quotes

Poetry always runs away from you - it's very difficult to grasp it and every time you read it depending on your conditions you will have a different grasp of it. Whereas with a novel once you have read it you have grasped it.

Abbas Kiarostami | poetry quotes

I would say that no film is apolitical. There are politics in all films. Any film that is anchored in a society any film that deals with humanity is necessarily political.

Abbas Kiarostami | politics quotes

Religion works on some people but not on everyone because it says 'Stop thinking and accept what I tell you.' That's not valid for people who want to think and reflect.

Abbas Kiarostami | religion quotes

All the different nations in the world despite their differences of appearance and religion and language and way of life still have one thing in common and that is what's inside of all of us. If we X-rayed the insides of different human beings we wouldn't be able to tell from those X-rays what the person's language or background or race is.

Abbas Kiarostami | religion quotes

I would say that no film is apolitical. There are politics in all films. Any film that is anchored in a society any film that deals with humanity is necessarily political.

Abbas Kiarostami | society quotes

My family background was deeply Christian.

Abbe Pierre | family quotes

What I would say to the young men and women who are beset by hopelessness and doubt is that they should go and see what is being done on the ground to fight poverty not like going to the zoo but to take action to open their hearts and their consciences.

Abbe Pierre | men quotes

The question I asked Georges has now become a general one - You who thought you were superfluous who thought there was no place for you in society not only are you not superfluous you are needed and so those who were beggars become givers.

Abbe Pierre | society quotes

It's true that humanity has seen a succession of crises wars and atrocities but this negative side is offset by advances in technology and cultural exchanges.

Abbe Pierre | technology quotes

What I would say to the young men and women who are beset by hopelessness and doubt is that they should go and see what is being done on the ground to fight poverty not like going to the zoo but to take action to open their hearts and their consciences.

Abbie Cornish | dad quotes

I've got heaps of dreams.

Abbie Cornish | dreams quotes

I'm a vegetarian and very much active in regards to how I feel about animal rights and protecting animals and giving animals a voice. But at the same time I appreciate and respect other people's decisions to eat meat. The only thing that I hope is that people are educated that they're aware that they're living a conscious lifestyle.

Abbie Cornish | hope quotes

Something I've noticed as I get older is that I do think about the future more. It's all positive thinking.

Abdallah II | peace quotes

We coin concepts and we use them to analyse and explain nature and society. But we seem to forget midway that these concepts are our own constructs and start equating them with reality.

Abdolkarim Soroush | nature quotes

We coin concepts and we use them to analyse and explain nature and society. But we seem to forget midway that these concepts are our own constructs and start equating them with reality.

Establishing an equilibrium between the Islam of truth and Islam as an identity is one of the most difficult tasks of religious intellectuals.

Abdolkarim Soroush | truth quotes

The teacher that I was for decades and that I still am in a certain way wondered what was meant by the word education. I was truly dumbfounded at the very thought of dealing with such an essential and extensive subject.

To work in architecture you are so much involved with society with politics with bureaucrats. It's a very complicated process to do large projects. You start to see the society how it functions how it works. Then you have a lot of criticism about how it works.

Ai Weiwei | architecture quotes

I see the Beijing National Stadium as an architectural project. I accepted Herzog and De Meuron's invitation to collaborate on the design and our proposal won the competition. From beginning to end I stayed with the project. I am committed to fostering relationships between a city and its architecture.

Ai Weiwei | architecture quotes

Ai Weiwei | education quotes

The American experience influenced my understanding of individuality basic human rights freedom of expression and the rights and responsibilities of citizens.

Ai Weiwei | experience quotes

I don't believe in the so-called Olympic spirit. I speak from personal experience. When China hosted the Games it failed to include the people. The event was constructed without regard for their joy.

Ai Weiwei | experience quotes

The American experience influenced my understanding of individuality basic human rights freedom of expression and the rights and responsibilities of citizens.

Ai Weiwei | freedom quotes

Widespread state control over art and culture has left no room for freedom of expression in the country. For more than 60 years anyone with a dissenting opinion has been suppressed. Chinese art is merely a product: it avoids any meaningful engagement. There is no larger context. Its only purpose is to charm viewers with its ambiguity.

Ai Weiwei | freedom quotes

China has not established the rule of law and if there is a power above the law there is no social justice. Everybody can be subjected to harm. I'm just a citizen: my life is equal in value to any other. But I'm thankful that when I lost my freedom so many people shared feelings and put such touching effort into helping me.

This nation is notorious for its ability to make or fake anything cheaply. 'Made-in-China' goods now fill homes around the world. But our giant country has a small problem. We can't manufacture the happiness of our people.

Ai Weiwei | happiness quotes

The Chinese art world does not exist. In a society that restricts individual freedoms and violates human rights anything that calls itself creative or independent is a pretence. It is impossible for a totalitarian society to create anything with passion and imagination.

Ai Weiwei | imagination quotes

I think Chinese leadership is trying to tell the world they have another set of logic or reasoning or values which are different from yours. Of course I don't think they believe that. It's just an argument that's made when you can't confront the truth and facts. They really want to maintain power.

Ai Weiwei | leadership quotes

People are always wondering if I am an artist or political activist or politician. Maybe I'll just clearly tell you: Whatever I do is not art. Let's say it is just objects or materials movies or writing but not art OK?

Ai Weiwei | politics quotes

Censorship is saying: 'I'm the one who says the last sentence. Whatever you say the conclusion is mine.' But the internet is like a tree that is growing. The people will always have the last word - even if someone has a very weak quiet voice. Such power will collapse because of a whisper.

Ai Weiwei | power quotes

Ai Weiwei | society quotes

If we all say the same thing then I think the government has to listen. But because no one is saying it I become singled out even though what I'm saying is common sense. It's very essential values that we all have to protect. But in Chinese society people are giving up on protecting these values.

Ai Weiwei | society quotes

Police in China can do whatever they want after 81 days in arbitrary detention you clearly realise that they don't have to obey their own laws. In a society like this there is no negotiation no discussion except to tell you that power can crush you any time they want - not only you your whole family and all people like you.

Ai Weiwei | thankful quotes

As a person I was born to give out my opinions. By giving out my opinions I realize who I am. As long as I can communicate I'm not so lonely. If I cannot travel or do art or have company if they take away all my belongings it doesn't matter at all.

Aisha Tyler | science quotes

One reason outfielders don't have stronger arms might be they don't practice as much as we did. Most teams today don't take outfield practice.

Al-Waleed bin Talal | government quotes

What is fascinating about marriage is why anyone wants to get married.

Alain de Botton | marriage quotes

I'm also interested in the modern suggestion that you can have a combination of love and sex in a marriage - which no previous society has ever believed.

Alain de Botton | marriage quotes

The Arab-Israeli conflict is also in many ways a conflict about status: it's a war between two peoples who feel deeply humiliated by the other who want the other to respect them. Battles over status can be even more intractable than those over land or water or oil.

Alain de Botton | respect quotes

Status anxiety definitely exists at a political level. Many Iraqis were annoyed with the US essentially for reasons of status: for not showing them respect for humiliating them.

Everything will line up perfectly when knowing and living the truth becomes more important than looking good.

Alan Cohen | truth quotes

My mum always told me I was precious while my dad always told me I was worthless. I think that's a good grounding for a balanced life.

Alan Cumming | dad quotes

My feeling about work is it's much more about the experience of doing it than the end product. Sometimes things that are really great and make lots of money are miserable to make and vice versa.

Alan Cumming | experience quotes

I was horrified when Richard Chamberlain and Rupert Everett said gay actors should stay in the closet. They were saying to people that they should live a lie and not be liberated to live in fear of being found out.

Alan Cumming | fear quotes

I come more to Scotland than I ever used to so I feel more connected to it more part of the zeitgeist. You know when you realize you have a choice and I'm choosing my homeland. It's funny: when you get older these things creep up to you.

Alan Cumming | funny quotes

The thing with film and theater is that you always know the story so you can play certain cues in each scene with the knowledge that you know where the story's going to end and how it's going to go. But on television nobody knows what's going to happen even the writers.

Alan Dean Foster | travel quotes

I learn from experience.

Alan Dershowitz | experience quotes

I came from a poor family so working and going to school at the same time was natural. It taught me multi-tasking although we didn't call it that back then. I learned I could never be idle I need to be doing many things at once.

Alan Dershowitz | family quotes

We don't have an Official Secrets Act in the United States as other countries do. Under the First Amendment freedom of the press freedom of speech and freedom of association are more important than protecting secrets.

Alan Dershowitz | freedom quotes

I don't believe in firing professors. They have academic freedom.

Alan Dershowitz | freedom quotes

Great research universities must insist on independence from government and on the exercise of academic freedom.

Alan Dershowitz | freedom quotes

You know it's ironic to me that Christians want to keep the Ten Commandments in our schools because Christianity has abrogated four of the Ten Commandments. For example the Sabbath day according to the Ten Commandments is Saturday not Sunday. And the reason is because God rested not because Jesus was resurrected.

Alan Dershowitz | god quotes

In the Pentagon Papers case the government asserted in the Supreme Court that the publication of the material was a threat to national security. It turned out it was not a threat to U.S. security. But even if it had been that doesn't mean that it couldn't be published.

Alan Dershowitz | government quotes

We all learn in school that the judicial legislative and executive branches of government must check and balance each other.

Great research universities must insist on independence from government and on the exercise of academic freedom.

Alan Dershowitz | leadership quotes

Judges are the weakest link in our system of justice and they are also the most protected.

Alan Dershowitz | legal quotes

I've thought hard about my psychological connections and I think I've managed to separate out the psychological from the legal moral and political.

Alan Dershowitz | legal quotes

I think mistakes are the essence of science and law. It's impossible to conceive of either scientific progress or legal progress without understanding the important role of being wrong and of mistakes.

Alan Dershowitz | legal quotes

I think that lawyers are terrible at admitting that they're wrong. And not just admitting it also realizing it. Most lawyers are very successful and they think that because they're making money and people think well of them they must be doing everything right.

Alan Dershowitz | money quotes

Israel can't make peace without the clear support of the United States.

Alan Dershowitz | peace quotes

I am deeply concerned that without peace and a two-state solution the Jewish and democratic nature of Israel is in danger. That's why I have opposed Israel's settlement policy since 1973 and that's why I have favored a two-state solution since 1967.

Alan Dershowitz | peace quotes

I am a peace supporting Jew.

Alan Dershowitz | peace quotes

Twenty five percent of Israeli citizens are not even Jewish. Anybody can become an Israeli citizen if you qualify. Religion is not a criterion for citizenship.

Alan Dershowitz | science quotes

Alan Dershowitz | truth quotes

It's never acceptable to target civilians. It violates the Geneva Accords it violates the international law of war and it violates all principles of morality.

Alan Dershowitz | war quotes

Cities all over the world are getting bigger as more and more people move from rural to urban sites but that has created enormous problems with respect to environmental pollution and the general quality of life.

Alan Dundes | environmental quotes

Future orientation is combined with a notion and expectation of progress and nothing is impossible.

Alan Dundes | future quotes

In the light of our culture these are not unreasonable questions and tactics but if once again we try to see the lens through which we look we can see that there is far too great an emphasis placed on the future.

Alan Dundes | future quotes

If a student takes the whole series of my folklore courses including the graduate seminars he or she should learn something about fieldwork something about bibliography something about how to carry out library research and something about how to publish that research.

Alan Dundes | graduation quotes

I have a great advantage over many of my colleagues inasmuch as my students bring with them to class their own personal knowledge of national regional religious ethnic occupational and family folklore traditions.

Alan Greenspan | finance quotes

In the absence of the gold standard there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value.

Alan Greenspan | finance quotes

An almost hysterical antagonism toward the gold standard is one issue which unites statists of all persuasions. They seem to sense... that gold and economic freedom are inseparable.

Alan Greenspan | freedom quotes

I've been in and out of Wall Street since 1949 and I've never seen the type of animosity between government and Wall Street. And I'm not sure where it comes from but I suspect it's got to do with a general schism in this society which is really becoming ever more destructive.

Alan Greenspan | government quotes

History has not dealt kindly with the aftermath of protracted periods of low risk premiums.

Alan Greenspan | history quotes

Look I'm very much in favor of tax cuts but not with borrowed money. And the problem that we've gotten into in recent years is spending programs with borrowed money tax cuts with borrowed money and at the end of the day that proves disastrous. And my view is I don't think we can play subtle policy here.

Alan Greenspan | money quotes

I was a good amateur but only an average professional. I soon realized that there was a limit to how far I could rise in the music business so I left the band and enrolled at New York University.

Alan Hovhaness | sympathy quotes

What I enjoy doing more than anything is I have my little antique car collection and when the weather is pretty I like to get out one of my old cars. I have a little route I run down in the country down Nachez Trace Parkway. The loop down through there is just really relaxing not much traffic.

When we through our educational culture through the media through the entertainment culture give our children the impression that human beings cannot control their passions we are telling them in effect that human beings cannot be trusted with freedom.

Family involvement is a valuable thing and playing together actively can be the '90s version of it. Instead of just watching you can do it together... something we don't spend enough time on. We can motivate and excite each other about fitness.

Alan Turing | science quotes

But it was great we sit in the same dressing room where like Johnny Cash sat and Willie Nelson and all those guys. That was in itself something amazing - I was on the same space these guys stood on ya know?

Alan Vega | amazing quotes

We played in Texas about a year ago at Emo's the famous country and western club in Austin. And I figured well if I'm finally gonna die onstage that's where it's going to be!

Alan Vega | famous quotes

That's what so sad about a lot of modern music in my opinion so many young bands never stay around long enough to fulfill their ultimate promise. They only get halfway there or a quarter of the way there.

Alan Vega | sad quotes

But the attitude of faith is to let go and become open to truth whatever it might turn out to be.

Alan Watts | attitude quotes

And the attitude of faith is the very opposite of clinging to belief of holding on.

Alan Watts | attitude quotes

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it move with it and join the dance.

Alan Watts | change quotes

How is it possible that a being with such sensitive jewels as the eyes such enchanted musical instruments as the ears and such fabulous arabesque of nerves as the brain can experience itself anything less than a god.

Alan Watts | experience quotes

In other words a person who is fanatic in matters of religion and clings to certain ideas about the nature of God and the universe becomes a person who has no faith at all.

Alan Watts | faith quotes

Faith is a state of openness or trust.

And the attitude of faith is the very opposite of clinging to belief of holding on.

Alan Watts | faith quotes

But the attitude of faith is to let go and become open to truth whatever it might turn out to be.

Alan Watts | faith quotes

To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don't grab hold of the water because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax and float.

Alan Watts | faith quotes

No work or love will flourish out of guilt fear or hollowness of heart just as no valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now.

Alan Watts | fear quotes

Alan Watts | future quotes

I have realized that the past and future are real illusions that they exist in the present which is what there is and all there is.

Alan Watts | god quotes

You don't look out there for God something in the sky you look in you.

Alan Watts | god quotes

The style of God venerated in the church mosque or synagogue seems completely different from the style of the natural universe.

Alan Watts | god quotes

The difficulty for most of us in the modern world is that the old-fashioned idea of God has become incredible or implausible.

Alan Watts | god quotes

But at any rate the point is that God is what nobody admits to being and everybody really is.

Alan Watts | god quotes

In other words a person who is fanatic in matters of religion and clings to certain ideas about the nature of God and the universe becomes a person who has no faith at all.

Alan Watts | god quotes

Zen does not confuse spirituality with thinking about God while one is peeling potatoes. Zen spirituality is just to peel the potatoes.

Alan Watts | god quotes

The religious idea of God cannot do full duty for the metaphysical infinity.

Alan Watts | god quotes

You are that vast thing that you see far far off with great telescopes.

Alan Watts | great quotes

The reason we have poverty is that we have no imagination. There are a great many people accumulating what they think is vast wealth but it's only money... they don't know how to enjoy it because they have no imagination.

Alan Watts | great quotes

In known history nobody has had such capacity for altering the universe than the people of the United States of America. And nobody has gone about it in such an aggressive way.

Alan Watts | history quotes

The reason we have poverty is that we have no imagination. There are a great many people accumulating what they think is vast wealth but it's only money... they don't know how to enjoy it because they have no imagination.

But to me nothing - the negative the empty - is exceedingly powerful.

Alan Watts | power quotes

So then the relationship of self to other is the complete realization that loving yourself is impossible without loving everything defined as other than yourself.

Alan Watts | relationship quotes

Religion is not a department of life it is something that enters into the whole of it.

Alan Watts | religion quotes

In other words a person who is fanatic in matters of religion and clings to certain ideas about the nature of God and the universe becomes a person who has no faith at all.

Technology is destructive only in the hands of people who do not realize that they are one and the same process as the universe.

Alan Watts | work quotes

Canada has a passive-aggressive culture with a lot of sarcasm and righteousness. That went with my weird messianic complex. The ego is a fascinating monster. I was taught from a young age that I had to serve so that turned into me thinking I had to save the planet.

Alanis Morissette | age quotes

I was taught from a young age that I had to serve so that turned into me thinking I had to save the planet.

Alanis Morissette | age quotes

When I was producing on my own I was doing it in order to - in a very patriarchal entertainment industry let alone planet - very much hell-bent on trying to prove to myself if nothing else that I could do it as a woman.

Alanis Morissette | alone quotes

I was always such a people-watcher. I would sit on street corners alone and watch people and make up stories about them in my head. Then all of a sudden I was the one being watched.

Alanis Morissette | alone quotes

It's a joke to think that anyone is one thing. We're all such complex creatures. But if I'm going to be a poster child for anything anger's a gorgeous emotion. It gets a bad rap but it can make great changes happen.

Alanis Morissette | anger quotes

When I was younger I was terrified to express anger because it would often kick-start a horrible reaction in the men in my life. So I bit my tongue. I was left to painstakingly deal with the aftermath of my avoidance later in life in therapy or through the lyrics of my songs.

Alanis Morissette | anger quotes

When someone says that I'm angry it's actually a compliment. I have not always been direct with my anger in my relationships which is part of why I'd write about it in my songs because I had such fear around expressing anger as a woman.

Alanis Morissette | anger quotes

What influenced me was Tori Amos who was unapologetic about expressing anger through music and Sinead O'Connor. Those two in particular were really moving for me and very inspiring before I wrote 'Jagged Little Pill.'

Alanis Morissette | anger quotes

We're taught to be ashamed of confusion anger fear and sadness and to me they're of equal value to happiness excitement and inspiration.

Alanis Morissette | anger quotes

Trauma happens in relationships so it can only be healed in relationships. Art can't provide healing. It can be cathartic and therapeutic but a relationship is a three-part journey.

Alanis Morissette | art quotes

I try to keep a low profile in general. Not with my art but just as a person.

Alanis Morissette | art quotes

In LA where I live it's all about perfectionism. Beauty is now defined by your bones sticking out of your decolletage. For that to be the standard is really perilous for women.

Alanis Morissette | beauty quotes

Beauty is now defined by your bones sticking out of your decolletage. For that to be the standard is really perilous for women.

Alanis Morissette | beauty quotes

I live with some of my best friends from high school very commune-like in my house. It's my hippie way of life.

Alanis Morissette | best quotes

At some point I would like to write a book and other things but I work best when there is some sort of deadline in my own mind but not when fifty people or fifty million people are breathing down the back of my neck.

Alanis Morissette | best quotes

I'm doing it because I choose it. And if it's not working I can make a change.

Alanis Morissette | change quotes

Courage and willingness to just go for it whether it is a conversation or a spontaneous trip or trying new things that are scary - it is a really attractive quality.

Alanis Morissette | courage quotes

I still indulge in a glass of wine or chocolate - treats are mandatory. Without deviating from the day-to-day healthy diet once in a while it wouldn't be sustainable for me and that's what I wanted: an approach to eating to last my entire life.

Alanis Morissette | diet quotes

For four to six months at a time I would barely eat. I lived on a diet of Melba toast carrots and black coffee.

Alanis Morissette | diet quotes

I did commit to myself that I would not jump back into being the workaholic that I can be before I gave myself an honest opportunity to create the marriage of my dreams and to create the beginning of the family of my dreams and that took a hot second.

Alanis Morissette | dreams quotes

If I could sell 500 million records every time it would be great. But I've also had the luxury experience of having it when I was a teenager in a very kind of model version of it.

Alanis Morissette | experience quotes

Getting married and starting a family has been a lifelong goal and one that I have persevered through different paths up to it!

Alanis Morissette | family quotes

I did commit to myself that I would not jump back into being the workaholic that I can be before I gave myself an honest opportunity to create the marriage of my dreams and to create the beginning of the family of my dreams and that took a hot second.

Alanis Morissette | family quotes

Over the last couple of years I've really worked toward balancing my life out more having a little bit more time with friends family and my boyfriend. There was a period of time when they were way down the list. It was all about music and touring and if everything fell by the wayside so be it.

Alanis Morissette | family quotes

I have a profound empathy for people who are in the public eye whether they manifest it themselves or whether it happened by accident - it doesn't matter to me. I think there's a great misunderstanding of what it is to be famous.

Alanis Morissette | famous quotes

I thought the more famous I became the more friendships I would have but the opposite was true.

Alanis Morissette | famous quotes

When someone says that I'm angry it's actually a compliment. I have not always been direct with my anger in my relationships which is part of why I'd write about it in my songs because I had such fear around expressing anger as a woman.

Alanis Morissette | fear quotes

My three addictions of choice are food love and work.

Alanis Morissette | food quotes

We'll love you just the way you are if you're perfect.

Alanis Morissette | funny quotes

A good man often appears gauche simply because he does not take advantage of the myriad mean little chances of making himself look stylish. Preferring truth to form he is not constantly at work upon the facade of his appearance.

Alanis Morissette | good quotes

I wish people could acheive what they think would bring them happiness in order for them to realize that thats not really what happiness is.

Alanis Morissette | happiness quotes

We're taught to be ashamed of confusion anger fear and sadness and to me they're of equal value to happiness excitement and inspiration.

Alanis Morissette | happiness quotes

There's a continuity between what I care about in any form: I care about it in my music in article-writing in how I dress in how I live in my relationships in how I navigate paparazzi how I decorate my home. There's such a continuity between everything that I don't really care what form it shows up in.

Alanis Morissette | home quotes

I see the whole concept of Generation X implies that everyone has lost hope.

Alanis Morissette | hope quotes

In my opinion I think sarcasm and humor in a song without turning it into a novelty song is really charming.

Alanis Morissette | humor quotes

Down the road I'll probably have a kid or two or three. And there will probably be political events or spiritual things to comment on and humor.

Alanis Morissette | humor quotes

We'll love you just the way you are if you're perfect.

Alanis Morissette | love quotes

I did commit to myself that I would not jump back into being the workaholic that I can be before I gave myself an honest opportunity to create the marriage of my dreams and to create the beginning of the family of my dreams and that took a hot second.

Alanis Morissette | marriage quotes

I didn't want to be one of those women who wake up at 63 years old and realize they've missed the window of opportunity for marriage and children.

Alanis Morissette | marriage quotes

When I was younger I was terrified to express anger because it would often kick-start a horrible reaction in the men in my life. So I bit my tongue. I was left to painstakingly deal with the aftermath of my avoidance later in life in therapy or through the lyrics of my songs.

Alanis Morissette | men quotes

I could get away with not taking care of myself as a bachelorette but as a mom I can't.

Alanis Morissette | mom quotes

Making a movie requires 20 to 500 people to make and a lot of money and the stakes are a lot higher.

Alanis Morissette | money quotes

And if I had a preference it would be to be able to not be in the studio until 4 in the morning.

Alanis Morissette | morning quotes

I've been really enjoying writing articles and writing music and music for movies.

Alanis Morissette | movies quotes

What's that line from TS Eliot? To arrive at the place where you started but to know it for the first time. I'm able to write about a breakup from a different place. Same brokenness. Same rock-bottom. But a little more informed now I'm older. Thank God for growing up.

Alanis Morissette | movingon quotes

There's a continuity between what I care about in any form: I care about it in my music in article-writing in how I dress in how I live in my relationships in how I navigate paparazzi how I decorate my home. There's such a continuity between everything that I don't really care what form it shows up in.

Alanis Morissette | music quotes

I saw music as a way to entertain people and take them away from their daily lives and put smiles on their faces as opposed to what I see it being now which is a way for me to actually communicate and a way for me to tap into my subconscious.

Alanis Morissette | music quotes

Anything I do has to be directly related to my music. If it isn't I don't really see a point to it.

Alanis Morissette | music quotes

Over the last couple of years I've really worked toward balancing my life out more having a little bit more time with friends family and my boyfriend. There was a period of time when they were way down the list. It was all about music and touring and if everything fell by the wayside so be it.

Alanis Morissette | music quotes

I started playing piano when I was 6. And I knew that wanted to be involved in that form of expression whether it was through music or acting or dancing or painting or writing.

Alanis Morissette | music quotes

I'm clearly most well known for my music. Eventually ultimately I'll be writing books. I'm still writing articles now. I just consider myself a writer.

Alanis Morissette | music quotes

I've been really enjoying writing articles and writing music and music for movies.

Alanis Morissette | music quotes

My message to anyone who's afraid that they can't write music when they're happy is 'Just trust the passion.' The passion can write a lot of things.

Alanis Morissette | music quotes

What influenced me was Tori Amos who was unapologetic about expressing anger through music and Sinead O'Connor. Those two in particular were really moving for me and very inspiring before I wrote 'Jagged Little Pill.'

Alanis Morissette | music quotes

It's not just the 'Grammys' that I've pulled out of. I also pulled out of the English awards as well. The reason that I wanted to pull out was because I believe very much that the music industry as a whole is mainly concerned with material success.

Alanis Morissette | music quotes

Music will always be a part of my life. I love music and I don't care how many units I sell.

Alanis Morissette | music quotes

When I'm off the road my husband and I recharge our batteries. It's a day of deep rest and connection with the spiritual and that can be anything - going for a walk in nature being in silence burning incense.

Alanis Morissette | nature quotes

Then I realized that secrecy is actually to the detriment of my own peace of mind and self and that I could still sustain my belief in privacy and be authentic and transparent at the same time. It was a pretty revelatory moment and there's been a liberating force that's come from it.

Alanis Morissette | peace quotes

Peace of mind for five minutes that's what I crave.

Alanis Morissette | peace quotes

I think it's child abuse to have someone in the public eye too young. Society basically values wealth and fame and power at the cost of well-being. In the case of a child it's at the cost of someone's natural development. It's already hard enough to develop.

Alanis Morissette | power quotes

Trauma happens in relationships so it can only be healed in relationships. Art can't provide healing. It can be cathartic and therapeutic but a relationship is a three-part journey.

Alanis Morissette | relationship quotes

My greatest environments in which I can grow or grow up is in personal romantic relationships with a man.

Alanis Morissette | romantic quotes

We're taught to be ashamed of confusion anger fear and sadness and to me they're of equal value to happiness excitement and inspiration.

Alanis Morissette | sad quotes

I think it's child abuse to have someone in the public eye too young. Society basically values wealth and fame and power at the cost of well-being. In the case of a child it's at the cost of someone's natural development. It's already hard enough to develop.

Alanis Morissette | society quotes

America's a very traumatized society.

Alanis Morissette | society quotes

I was motivated by just thinking that if you had all this external success that everyone would love you and everything would be peaceful and wonderful.

Alanis Morissette | success quotes

It's not just the 'Grammys' that I've pulled out of. I also pulled out of the English awards as well. The reason that I wanted to pull out was because I believe very much that the music industry as a whole is mainly concerned with material success.

Alanis Morissette | success quotes

As a teen I was both anorexic and bulimic.

Alanis Morissette | women quotes

I didn't want to be one of those women who wake up at 63 years old and realize they've missed the window of opportunity for marriage and children.

Alanis Morissette | women quotes

Ageism works in both directions. As a teenager in the public eye people would talk condescendingly to me. When you get older there's this feeling that you have to start carving up your face and body. Right now I'm in the middle ground - I think women in their thirties are taken seriously.

Alanis Morissette | women quotes

Beauty is now defined by your bones sticking out of your decolletage. For that to be the standard is really perilous for women.

Alanis Morissette | women quotes

I'm excited about there being more of a sisterhood these days. Back in the '90s there was a lot of hate - the women I looked up to as artists were dissing me! It's not so patriarchal these days - there's more love and a lot less hate!

Alanis Morissette | women quotes

A good man often appears gauche simply because he does not take advantage of the myriad mean little chances of making himself look stylish. Preferring truth to form he is not constantly at work upon the facade of his appearance.

Alanis Morissette | work quotes

My role in 'Legally Blonde' was really rewarding because I had so much fun working on the movie. I've had really rewarding experiences on tiny low budget films that you'll never see but where I had a cool time creating characters as well. I love almost all of the characters I've played.

I give myself strength by staying away from any music.

Alannah Myles | strength quotes

May I share with you my earliest memory of a political row? It was with my mother about the Queen - classic Freudian stuff shrinks would say. I was eight and refusing to watch the Queen's Christmas Day broadcast.

Alastair Campbell | christmas quotes

My dad Donald was a vet and had a practice in Yorkshire. Cats and dogs were his bread and butter but his greatest love was large animals.

Alastair Campbell | dad quotes

So here is one of my theories on happiness: we cannot know if we have lived a truly happy life until the very end. This view of life and death was reinforced by my close witnessing of the buildup to the death of Philip Gould. Philip was without doubt my closest friend in politics. When he died I felt like I had lost a limb.

Alastair Campbell | death quotes

Failure it is thought is what sells and what people want to hear and read about. I am not so sure.

Alastair Campbell | failure quotes

Friends have suggested that I am the least qualified person to talk about happiness because I am often down and sometimes profoundly depressed. But I think that's where my qualification comes from. Because to know happiness it helps to know unhappiness.

Alastair Campbell | happiness quotes

By asking the question 'Am I happy? ' and via the answer setting out what I mean by happiness there is a political route that can be taken by asking another question - 'Can politics deliver happiness and should it try?'

Alastair Campbell | happiness quotes

Alastair Campbell | politics quotes

There has been a shift to what may be defined as a culture of negativity which goes well beyond coverage of politics.

Alastair Campbell | politics quotes

We should confine booing in sports arenas to sport. I love a good boo as much as the next football fan.

Alastair Campbell | sports quotes

Clinton is a big personality who has led a big life and for some of the media conventional wisdom to boil it down to a view that 'all people are really interested in' are a few moments of madness in the Oval Office gets him the importance of the presidency and the significance of his life all wrong.

Alastair Campbell | wisdom quotes

I can tell you dearest friend that if it became known how much friendship love and a world of human and spiritual references I have smuggled into these three movements the adherents of programme music - should there be any left - would go mad with joy.

Alban Berg | friendship quotes

Music is at once the product of feeling and knowledge for it requires from its disciples composers and performers alike not only talent and enthusiasm but also that knowledge and perception which are the result of protracted study and reflection.

Alban Berg | knowledge quotes

The best audience is intelligent well-educated and a little drunk.

Alben W Barkley | best quotes

Most of the images of reality on which we base our actions are really based on vicarious experience.

Albert Barnes | truth quotes

I think anger and laughter are very close to each other when you think about it.

Albert Brooks | anger quotes

All improv turns into anger. All comedy improv basically turns into anger because that's all people know how to do when they're improvising. If you notice shows that are improvising are generally people yelling at each other.

Albert Brooks | anger quotes

I'd still like to see 'Survivor' minus the planned show-biz parts. That would be the purest form of show business - I want to see someone so hungry that they eat somebody else's foot.

Albert Brooks | business quotes

Movies are an expensive business.

Albert Brooks | business quotes

Even though my father was a radio comedian it wasn't cool to say at a young age 'I want to be a comedian.'

Albert Brooks | cool quotes

My mom was a professional. My dad and mom met each other in a movie called 'New Faces of 1937.' My mom went under the name Thelma Leeds and she did a few movies and she was really a great singer and when she married my dad and started to have a family she sang at parties.

Albert Brooks | dad quotes

When I was younger I wasn't concentrating on good days. I was managing a career and trying to have a good year. It would always 'lead' to something which never leads to anything except death where everything leads to. And then as I got older and then I had my kids and everything I began to appreciate a great Wednesday.

Albert Brooks | death quotes

My mom was a professional. My dad and mom met each other in a movie called 'New Faces of 1937.' My mom went under the name Thelma Leeds and she did a few movies and she was really a great singer and when she married my dad and started to have a family she sang at parties.

I don't want to be the one to break it to you but the future ain't that funny.

Albert Brooks | funny quotes

Twitter to me works if you're funny. Twitter doesn't work as a promotional tool unless you do it very very very occasionally.

Albert Brooks | funny quotes

I've been to many funerals of funny people and they're some of the funniest days you'll ever have because the emotions run high.

Albert Brooks | funny quotes

I don't want to be the one to break it to you but the future ain't that funny.

Albert Brooks | future quotes

What's interesting about books that take place in the future even twenty years in the future is that many of them are black or white: It's either a utopia or it's misery. The real truth is that there's going to be both things in any future just like there is now.

Albert Brooks | future quotes

I can't not put humor in a book.

Albert Brooks | humor quotes

I had a very wise person tell me that he thinks marriage when you're younger you keep thinking you can fix things. That's what people do. And you can't really fix anything. It shouldn't be a massive difficult thing every day. Life's difficult enough.

Albert Brooks | marriage quotes

I cast unusual people in my movies.

Albert Brooks | movies quotes

I've always been in the middle of making my own movies so taking acting jobs that take me away from that has been impossible.

Albert Brooks | movies quotes

By the way movies are like sporting events in that you're as good as the movie you're in. You can sit in a room for 20 years and go do a movie and you can just kill in it and you move to the head of the line again. By the same token you can do five movies a year and if they're dreck it's nothing.

Albert Brooks | movies quotes

Listen there are some movies that are set in stone and the writer or the director does not want to change but I've never worked on a movie including my own that didn't take advantage of a rehearsal process.

Albert Brooks | movies quotes

I've done performances in movies that I was immensely proud of and the movies didn't take off like a rocket at Cape Canaveral it didn't take off.

Albert Camus | government quotes

A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover through the detours of art those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened.

All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant's revolving door.

Albert Camus | great quotes

There is the good and the bad the great and the low the just and the unjust. I swear to you that all that will never change.

Albert Camus | great quotes

The modern mind is in complete disarray. Knowledge has stretched itself to the point where neither the world nor our intelligence can find any foot-hold. It is a fact that we are suffering from nihilism.

Albert Ellis | work quotes

Well I've always thought that my career was in England really. I used to do more in the theatre and I felt that I should be there. It's not far is it? It's amazing the way that special FX have taken a quantum leap in what they're capable of doing.

Albert Finney | amazing quotes

My dad was great. He was very droll very dry.

Albert Finney | dad quotes

When I read the script I liked the script very much and I thought it was a marvelous part for her because I think it is a change of pace. I mean we know how wonderful she is in romantic comedy.

Albert J Nock | learning quotes

Concerning culture as a process one would say that it means learning a great many things and then forgetting them and the forgetting is as necessary as the learning.

Albert J Nock | learning quotes

Learning has always been made much of but forgetting has always been deprecated therefore pedantry has pretty well established itself throughout the modern world at the expense of culture.

Albert J Nock | learning quotes

Perhaps the prevalence of pedantry may be largely accounted for by the common error of thinking that because useful knowledge should be remembered any kind of knowledge that is at all worth learning should be remembered too.

Albert J Nock | learning quotes

Assuming that man has a distinct spiritual nature a soul why should it be thought unnatural that under appropriate conditions of maladjustment his soul might die before his body does or that his soul might die without his knowing it?

Perhaps it's good for one to suffer. Can an artist do anything if he's happy? Would he ever want to do anything? What is art after all but a protest against the horrible inclemency of life?

Aldous Huxley | art quotes

The finest works of art are precious among other reasons because they make it possible for us to know if only imperfectly and for a little while what it actually feels like to think subtly and feel nobly.

God isn't compatible with machinery and scientific medicine and universal happiness. You must make your choice. Our civilization has chosen machinery and medicine and happiness.

Aldous Huxley | god quotes

Aldous Huxley | good quotes

Everyone who wants to do good to the human race always ends in universal bullying.

Aldous Huxley | great quotes

What we feel and think and are is to a great extent determined by the state of our ductless glands and viscera.

Aldous Huxley | great quotes

Aldous Huxley | life quotes

The impulse to cruelty is in many people almost as violent as the impulse to sexual love - almost as violent and much more mischievous.

Aldous Huxley | love quotes

You should hurry up and acquire the cigar habit. It's one of the major happinesses. And so much more lasting than love so much less costly in emotional wear and tear.

Aldous Huxley | truth quotes

Proverbs are always platitudes until you have personally experienced the truth of them.

Deciding whether to trust or credit a person is always an uncertain task.

Science is always discovering odd scraps of magical wisdom and making a tremendous fuss about its cleverness.

Aleister Crowley | science quotes

The conscience of the world is so guilty that it always assumes that people who investigate heresies must be heretics just as if a doctor who studies leprosy must be a leper. Indeed it is only recently that science has been allowed to study anything without reproach.

Alex Ferguson | learning quotes
