Nobody else can be a better critic of yours than your enemy, who hates you to the core.
He will speculate your work minutely to find out your mistakes to let you down, the more he lets you down, the more you will excel.
And your true victory will be the day he praises your work.
The only condition is, you have to be negatively positive and positively negative to provide the comments and compliments, a space in your heart and mind, respectively.
Himmilicious Behaviour Sayings By Himmilicious: Nobody else can be a better critic of yours than your enemy, who hates you
yet religion itself, any religion, keeps a person on the right path. Not the fear of God, but upholding your own sense of honour and obeying your own conscience. How noble and good everyone could be if, at the end of each day, they were to review their own behaviour and weigh up the rights and wrongs. They would automatically try to do better at the start of each new day and, after a while, would certainly accomplish a great deal. Everyone is welcome to this prescription; it costs nothing and is definitely useful. Those who don't know will have to find out by experience that 'a quiet conscience gives you strength'!Anne Frank Behaviour Sayings By Anne Frank: yet religion itself, any religion, keeps a person on the right path. Not the fear
That's the biggest purpose of religious gathering: permission to look terrible in public. We used to go to church to confess our worst behaviour, to be heard and forgiven, then to be redeemed and accepted back into our community
Chuck Palahniuk in interview with TMO
Chuck Palahniuk Behaviour Sayings By Chuck Palahniuk: That's the biggest purpose of religious gathering: permission to look terrible in public. We used
Your success in life and work will be determined by the kinds of habits that you develop over time. The habit of setting priorities, overcoming procrastination, and getting on with your most important task is a mental and physical skill. As such, this habit is learnable through practice and repetition, over and over again, until it locks into your subsconscious mind and becomes a permanent part of your behaviour.Brian Tracy Behaviour Sayings By Brian Tracy: Your success in life and work will be determined by the kinds of habits that
Whether you are attending someone else's or holding your own dinner party, your main objective should be to lead guests away from the usual road of predictable behaviour and tedious conversation, and towards a shared voyage of epicurean delight.
In much the same way as caged animals in zoos are kept mentally healthy by being set mealtime tasks by their keepers, dinner guests will find their repast far more satisfying if it is presented as a challenge and an opportunity for self-expression. For example, instead of the dry old formula of a plate flanked by serried ranks of knives, forks and spoons, today's modern host should show a little more ingenuity when selecting eating utensils. The novelty of using a Black & Decker two-speed drill to sheer flakes of the roast beef or a 15-inch spanner to negotiate the foie gras, will firmly place your party in the minds of your guests as a night to remember.
Gustav Temple And Vic Darkwood Behaviour Sayings By Gustav Temple And Vic Darkwood: Whether you are attending someone else's or holding your own dinner party, your main objective
Could we have seen this efflorescence of stupidity? Yes, because every mass political movement unleashes the worst in human behaviour and admires it. For a time at least.Doris Lessing Behaviour Sayings By Doris Lessing: Could we have seen this efflorescence of stupidity? Yes, because every mass political movement unleashes
If you don't like pictures of animal cruelty being posted on social media, you need to help stop the cruelty, not the pictures. You should be bothered that its happening, not that you saw it.Marie Sarantakis Behaviour Sayings By Marie Sarantakis: If you don't like pictures of animal cruelty being posted on social media, you need
Mr. Dombey, being a good deal in the statue way himself, was well enough pleased to see his handsome wife immovable and proud and cold. Her deportment being always elegant and graceful, this, as a general behaviour, was agreeable and congenial to him. Presiding, therefore, with his accustomed dignity, and not at all reflecting on his wife by any warmth or hilarity of his own, he performed his share of the honours of the table with a cool satisfaction; and the installation dinner,* though not regarded down-stairs as a great success or very promising beginning, passed off, above, in a sufficiently polite, genteel, and frosty manner.Charles Dickens Behaviour Sayings By Charles Dickens: Mr. Dombey, being a good deal in the statue way himself, was well enough pleased
Complaints of feeling cut off, shut off, out of touch, feeling apart or strange, of things being out of focus or unreal, of not feeling one with people, or of the point having gone out of life, interest flagging, things seeming futile and meaningless, all describe in various ways this state of mind. Patients usually call it 'depression', but it lacks the heavy, black, inner sense of brooding, of anger and of guilt, which are not difficult to discover in classic depression. Depression is really a more extraverted state of mind, which, while the patient is turning his aggression inwards against himself, is part of a struggle not to break out into overt angry and aggressive behaviour. The states described above are rather the 'schizoid states'. They are definitely introverted. Depression is object-relational. The schizoid person has renounced objects, even though he still needs them.Harry Guntrip Behaviour Sayings By Harry Guntrip: Complaints of feeling cut off, shut off, out of touch, feeling apart or strange, of
It is clear that the building of models is not a purely mechanical process but requires skill of a high order - not merely mathematical skill but a sensitivity to the relative importance of different factors and a critical, almost an artistic, faculty in the selection of behaviour equations which are reasonable, tentative hypotheses in explaining the behaviour of actual economies.Kenneth E. Boulding Behaviour Sayings By Kenneth E. Boulding: It is clear that the building of models is not a purely mechanical process but
I think I was brought up with an innate sense of responsibility because my dad was in the Foreign Office where you were in somebody else's country, and you were aware of your behaviour. And my mum worked for the NHS, so you were aware of your responsibility to your country.Helen McCrory Behaviour Sayings By Helen McCrory: I think I was brought up with an innate sense of responsibility because my dad
It is a surprising fact that those who object most violently to the manipulation of behaviour nevertheless make the most vigorous effort to manipulate minds.B.F. Skinner Behaviour Sayings By B.F. Skinner: It is a surprising fact that those who object most violently to the manipulation of
What can be more disgusting than that impudent dross of gallantry, thought so manly, which makes many men stare insultingly at every female they meet? Can it be termed respect for the sex? No, this loose behaviour shews such habitual depravity, such weakness of mind, that it is vain to expect much public or private virtue, till both men and women grow more modest . . .
not the indolent condescension of protectorship.
Mary Wollstonecraft Behaviour Sayings By Mary Wollstonecraft: What can be more disgusting than that impudent dross of gallantry, thought so manly, which
Unhappy as the event must be for Lydia, we may draw from it this useful lesson: that loss of virtue in a female is irretrievable; that one false step involves her in endless ruin; that her reputation is no less brittle than it is beautiful; and that she cannot be too much guarded in her behaviour towards the undeserving of the other sex.Jane Austen Behaviour Sayings By Jane Austen: Unhappy as the event must be for Lydia, we may draw from it this useful
There were eccentric characters in the hotel. The Paris slums are a gathering-place for eccentric people - people who have fallen into solitary, half-mad grooves of life and given up trying to be normal or decent. Poverty frees them from ordinary standards of behaviour, just as money frees people from work. Some of the lodgers in our hotel lived lives that were curious beyond words.Anonymous Behaviour Sayings By Anonymous: There were eccentric characters in the hotel. The Paris slums are a gathering-place for eccentric
Variable behaviour of the sun is an obvious explanation, and there is increasing evidence that Earth's climate responds to changing patterns of solarmagnetic activity ... If you look back into the sun's past, you find that we live in a period of abnormally high solar activity ... It's a boom-bust system, and I would expect a crash soon ... Having a crash would certainly allow us to pin down the sun's true level of influence on the Earth's climate. Then we will be able to act on fact, rather than from fear.Nigel Weiss Behaviour Sayings By Nigel Weiss: Variable behaviour of the sun is an obvious explanation, and there is increasing evidence that
My mother always tells me that anyone who gets enjoyment from other people's misery will eventually get the greatest discomfort from his or her own miseries.Nnedi Okorafor-Mbachu Behaviour Sayings By Nnedi Okorafor-Mbachu: My mother always tells me that anyone who gets enjoyment from other people's misery will
... it seemed to Kirsch that the most reliable guide to the mental landscape of a patient was the patient himself. He was better placed to explain his behaviour and his experiences than anyone else. Yet wherever Kirsch went, the patient was the very last person anyone thought to consult. Because, of course, the patient was insane.Philip Sington Behaviour Sayings By Philip Sington: ... it seemed to Kirsch that the most reliable guide to the mental landscape of
Social media had the unique ability to turn adults into immature slaves to drama.Santino Hassell Behaviour Sayings By Santino Hassell: Social media had the unique ability to turn adults into immature slaves to drama.
People under the influence of cults is similar to that we observe in addicts. Typical behaviour for both includes draining bank accounts, neglecting children, destroying relations with family and losing interest in anything except the drug or cult.Keith Henson Behaviour Sayings By Keith Henson: People under the influence of cults is similar to that we observe in addicts. Typical
Whatever you choose, however many roads you travel, I hope that you choose not to be a lady. I hope you will find some way to break the rules and make a little trouble out there. And I also hope that you will choose to make some of that trouble on behalf of women.
[Commencement Address, Wellesley College, 1996]
Nora Ephron Behaviour Sayings By Nora Ephron: Whatever you choose, however many roads you travel, I hope that you choose not to
Don't allow yourself to be fooled by how "nice" a person appears to be, measure a person's virtuousness by the way in which they treat others with their words and actions .Miya Yamanouchi Behaviour Sayings By Miya Yamanouchi: Don't allow yourself to be fooled by how "nice" a person appears to be, measure
It is a mistake to seek in fantasies the key to concrete behaviour; for fantasies are created and cherished as fantasies. The little girl who dreams of violation with mingled horror and acquiescence does not really wish to be violated and if such a thing should happen it would be a hateful calamity.Simone De Beauvoir Behaviour Sayings By Simone De Beauvoir: It is a mistake to seek in fantasies the key to concrete behaviour; for fantasies
The ultimate goal is to change Syria's behaviour on a variety of issues - on its interference in Lebanese internal affairs, on its support for Palestinian terrorist groups that oppose the Palestinian Authority, on, most importantly, acting as a land bridge between Iran and Hezbollah, where Hezbollah gets all its arms.Elliott Abrams Behaviour Sayings By Elliott Abrams: The ultimate goal is to change Syria's behaviour on a variety of issues - on
The quality of moral behaviour varies in inverse ratio to the number of human beings involved.Aldous Huxley Behaviour Sayings By Aldous Huxley: The quality of moral behaviour varies in inverse ratio to the number of human beings
When we connect to Creator, our sacred character develops.Lailah Gifty Akita Behaviour Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: When we connect to Creator, our sacred character develops.
Now, in the modern money economy everything in the nature of a social-economic occurrence consists in human actions and behaviour.Oskar Morgenstern Behaviour Sayings By Oskar Morgenstern: Now, in the modern money economy everything in the nature of a social-economic occurrence consists
Is it possible that
we 'hate' politics because we have forgotten its specifi c and limited
nature, its overwhelming value, and also its innate fragility? Could it be
that our expectations are so high that politics appears almost destined
to disappoint? Democratic politics cannot make 'every sad heart glad',
as Crick argued, nor did it ever promise to do so. But not always
getting what you want, an awareness that public governance is often
slow and bureaucratic, a frustration that some decisions are hard to
understand or have to be made in secret, disbelief and anger at the selfinterested
behaviour of a small number of politicians, and an acceptance
that some people will always take out more from the system than
they put in - these are the prices you pay for living in a democracy.
Matthew Flinders Behaviour Sayings By Matthew Flinders: Is it possible thatwe 'hate' politics because we have forgotten its specifi c and limitednature,
The medication, the hormones and the relentless frustrations of our lives make us bitchy and you're not allowed to be bitchy in public or people won't like you.Liane Moriarty Behaviour Sayings By Liane Moriarty: The medication, the hormones and the relentless frustrations of our lives make us bitchy and
That's what everyone forgets these days: there's a fine line between sanity and insanity. Lots of people are on the edge. We can't be in perfect balance all the time.Poppy Adams Behaviour Sayings By Poppy Adams: That's what everyone forgets these days: there's a fine line between sanity and insanity. Lots
How could they have forgotten the importance of today's date? My brain screamed at me as, with shaking fingers, I climbed the stairs to the bus, before making my way to the back, out of sight. My birthday, like the norm, happens on the same date every year. Therefore, the confused part of my brain argued, how could they have all simply forgotten this fact and acted so "normal" when I entered the kitchen this morning?
They may have been abducted by aliens in the night? This was a voice from the incomprehensible area of my mind. Consequently, their behaviour would make complete sense then!
Furthermore, answered another voice from the same ridiculous compartment, they could've simply gone to bed last night fine and then awoken the next morning with amnesia? Sometimes, these things happen unexpectedly. Adele Rose, Awakening.
Adele Rose Behaviour Sayings By Adele Rose: How could they have forgotten the importance of today's date? My brain screamed at me
Sometimes we may find that our partner continues to seek satisfaction in ways that we cannot live with. Nevertheless, when we decide to go our own way, we still have a choice as to how we separate. We can separate with bad feelings, blaming the other's faults and unacceptable behaviour, or we can separate with forgiveness, love and understanding.Peter Russell Behaviour Sayings By Peter Russell: Sometimes we may find that our partner continues to seek satisfaction in ways that we
There is nothing distinctively scientific about the hypothetico-deductive process. It is not even distinctively intellectual. It is merely a scientific context for a much more general stratagem that underlies almost all regulative processes or processes of continuous control, namely feedback, the control of performance by the consequences of the act performed. In the hypothetico-deductive scheme the inferences we draw from a hypothesis are, in a sense, its logical output. If they are true, the hypothesis need not be altered, but correction is obligatory if they are false. The continuous feedback from inference to hypothesis is implicit in Whewell's account of scientific method; he would not have dissented from the view that scientific behaviour can be classified as appropriately under cybernetics as under logic.Peter Medawar Behaviour Sayings By Peter Medawar: There is nothing distinctively scientific about the hypothetico-deductive process. It is not even distinctively intellectual.
In the information-communication civilization of the 21st Century, creativity and mental excellence will become the ethical norm. The world will be too dynamic, complex, and diversified, too cross-linked by the global immediacies of modern (quantum) communication, for stability of thought or dependability of behaviour to be successful.Timothy Leary Behaviour Sayings By Timothy Leary: In the information-communication civilization of the 21st Century, creativity and mental excellence will become the
She shook her head. What was the point of anger? There were occasions when Mma Ramotswe, like all of us, could feel angry, but they were few - and they never lasted long. Anger, Obed Ramotswe had explained to her once, is no more than a salt that we rub into our wounds. She had never forgotten that - along with the things he said about cattle, and Botswana, and the behaviour of the rains.Alexander McCall Smith Behaviour Sayings By Alexander McCall Smith: She shook her head. What was the point of anger? There were occasions when Mma
JOHN: You said "Good day." I think that it is a nice day today.
CAROL: Is it?
JOHN: Yes, I think it is.
CAROL: And why is that important?
JOHN: Because it is the essence of all human communication. I say something
conventional, you respond, and the information we exchange is not about the
"weather," but that we both agree to converse. In effect, we agree that we are both
human.
David Mamet Behaviour Sayings By David Mamet: JOHN: You said "Good day." I think that it is a nice day today.CAROL: Is
You can't control other people's behaviour, but you can conrol your responses to it.Roberta Cava Behaviour Sayings By Roberta Cava: You can't control other people's behaviour, but you can conrol your responses to it.

You get weird and unsettling behaviour in the country.Sara Paretsky Behaviour Sayings By Sara Paretsky: You get weird and unsettling behaviour in the country.
Maturity is a needed component of faithful, loving relationships. And if not directed into the healthy channel of permitted adult behaviour, romantic and sexual jealousies can literally tear families and communities apart.
A permanent solution like marriage makes this much less a problem and also ensures that when couples have children, those children have a mother and father to care for them.
Linda Harvey Behaviour Sayings By Linda Harvey: Maturity is a needed component of faithful, loving relationships. And if not directed into the
Some experimenters have reported that an angry face "pops out" of a crowd of happy faces, but a single happy face does not stand out in an angry crowd. The brains of humans and other animals contain a mechanism that is designed to give priority to bad news.Daniel Kahneman Behaviour Sayings By Daniel Kahneman: Some experimenters have reported that an angry face "pops out" of a crowd of happy
Opportunism is self interest seeking with guile often involving subtle forms of deceit, especially calculated efforts to mislead, distort, disguise, obfuscate, or otherwise confuse. This vastly complicates the problems of economic organisation. Plainly if it were not for opportunism all behaviour could be rule governedOliver E. Williamson Behaviour Sayings By Oliver E. Williamson: Opportunism is self interest seeking with guile often involving subtle forms of deceit, especially calculated
A woman well bred and well taught, furnished with the additional accomplishments of knowledge and behaviour, is a creature without comparison. Her society is the emblem of sublimer enjoyments, her person is angelic, and her conversation heavenly. She is all softness and sweetness, peace, love, wit, and delight. She is every way suitable to the sublimest wish, and the man that has such a one to his portion, has nothing to do but to rejoice in her, and be thankful.Daniel Defoe Behaviour Sayings By Daniel Defoe: A woman well bred and well taught, furnished with the additional accomplishments of knowledge and
In a village where everyone has only one leg, the biped will hop about more lamely than anyone else, if he knows what is good for him.Idries Shah Behaviour Sayings By Idries Shah: In a village where everyone has only one leg, the biped will hop about more
And has it ever occurred to you, Miss Griffith, that you would probably not be able to take a good express train to London if little Georgie Stephenson had been out with his youth movement instead of lolling about, bored, in his mother's kitchen until the curious behaviour of the kettle lid attracted the attention of his idle mind?Agatha Christie Behaviour Sayings By Agatha Christie: And has it ever occurred to you, Miss Griffith, that you would probably not be
The greatest gift of education, Korya, is the years of shelter provided when learning. Do not think to reduce that learning to facts and the utterances of presumed sages. Much of what one learns in that time is in the sphere of concord, the ways of society, the proprieties of behaviour and thought. Haut would tell you that this is another hard-won achievement of civilization: the time and safe environment in which to learn how to live. When this is destroyed, undermined or discounted, then that civilization is in trouble.Steven Erikson Behaviour Sayings By Steven Erikson: The greatest gift of education, Korya, is the years of shelter provided when learning. Do
Sam Littleton was a beautiful woman who would try to play women's games. That meant that if he asked her if she was upset with him about something, she would do what women all do at such times: She would deny that anything was wrong, then continue acting as if something was wrong, in hopes that he would do what men always do at such times -beg for an explanation, agonise over the answer, ask for hints, and agonise a little more.Judith McNaught Behaviour Sayings By Judith McNaught: Sam Littleton was a beautiful woman who would try to play women's games. That meant
Those who have a scientific outlook on human behaviour, moreover, find it impossible to label any action as 'sin'; they realise that what we do has its origin in our heredity, our education, and our environment, and that it is by control of these causes, rather than by denunciation, that conduct injurious to society is to be prevented.Bertrand Russell Behaviour Sayings By Bertrand Russell: Those who have a scientific outlook on human behaviour, moreover, find it impossible to label
I think if I ever stopped pushing myself, I would revert quickly to quite repetitive, restrictive behaviour. But in pushing myself and concentrating on what I can do, I think I can contribute to society. And that gives me the desire to keep pushing, to see what I'm capable of. The thing to do is not to stop.Daniel Tammet Behaviour Sayings By Daniel Tammet: I think if I ever stopped pushing myself, I would revert quickly to quite repetitive,
She thought: When we are two, they do not notice us. They think us a match. What wisdom does a mob have? It is a hydra, an organism, stupid or dangerous in much of its behaviour, but could it have, in spite of this, a proper judgement about which of its component parts fit best together?Peter Carey Behaviour Sayings By Peter Carey: She thought: When we are two, they do not notice us. They think us a

He was a strange mixture of good and bad, of luxury and industry, courtesy and arrogance. In leisure he was self-indulgent, but full of vigour on service. His outward behaviour was praiseworthy, though ill was spoken of his private life.Tacitus Behaviour Sayings By Tacitus: He was a strange mixture of good and bad, of luxury and industry, courtesy and
I'm sorry, but why does Claire know how to take a punch? I'm not sure I like where this is going," Carter said nervously.
"Well, last year Jim made us watch Fight Club for like, the ten- thousandth time. And while I'm all for a little shirtless Brad Pitt action, Claire and I decided to take a shot every time Edward Norton talked in third person. By about twenty minutes in, we were trashed. I don't know whose idea it was, but Claire and I started our own fight club in the living room," Liz explained.
"It was your idea, Liz. You stood up in front of me, lifted your shirt and said "Punch me in the stomach as hard as you can, fucker.

The morphic fields include all kinds of organizing fields ... : The organizing fields of animal and human behaviour, of social and cultural systems, and of mental activity can all be regarded as morphic fields which contain an inherent memory.Rupert Sheldrake Behaviour Sayings By Rupert Sheldrake: The morphic fields include all kinds of organizing fields ... : The organizing fields of
It is as if, in response to the creation of digital networks, we are changing our behaviour to become not just networked individuals but 'network animals'.Paul Mason Behaviour Sayings By Paul Mason: It is as if, in response to the creation of digital networks, we are changing
People have all day to talk about what makes them ordinary. It turns out that they want to share what makes them weird.Derek Thompson Behaviour Sayings By Derek Thompson: People have all day to talk about what makes them ordinary. It turns out that
Man's unconscious ... contains all the patterns of life and behaviour inherited from his ancestors, so that every human child, prior to consciousness, is possessed of a potential system of adapted psychic functioning.Carl Jung Behaviour Sayings By Carl Jung: Man's unconscious ... contains all the patterns of life and behaviour inherited from his ancestors,
I could have argued that her wanting to do something for me meant she was ultimately acting in her own interests, but it might provoke more of the 'don't fuck with me' behaviour.Graeme Simsion Behaviour Sayings By Graeme Simsion: I could have argued that her wanting to do something for me meant she was
You can't change someone's behaviour, all you can do is remind them, and hope that Allah will change their heart.Nouman Ali Khan Behaviour Sayings By Nouman Ali Khan: You can't change someone's behaviour, all you can do is remind them, and hope that
The furious behaviour of an angry man is more likely to exasperate us against himself than against his enemies.Adam Smith Behaviour Sayings By Adam Smith: The furious behaviour of an angry man is more likely to exasperate us against himself
When there are no women on the tour it can get awful and ugly - constant horrible jokes and gross behaviour. It needs to be leavened with a feminine presence.Evan Dando Behaviour Sayings By Evan Dando: When there are no women on the tour it can get awful and ugly -
Aside from the straightforwardly visible curriculum, there is the hidden curriculum. This exists in the wider set of beliefs and values pupils acquire because of the way that a school is run and its teaching organized. It is about the behaviour of the teachers, the textbooks chosen, the school rules.Gary Thomas Behaviour Sayings By Gary Thomas: Aside from the straightforwardly visible curriculum, there is the hidden curriculum. This exists in the

Modern economics is a set of formal models and equations purporting to fully determine human behaviour, at least in the economic realm. And there is no way that uncertainty can be compressed into determinate mathematical models.Murray Rothbard Behaviour Sayings By Murray Rothbard: Modern economics is a set of formal models and equations purporting to fully determine human
So what are MHGs for? "They are tools of control used by purveyors of religion to cement their grip on power," says Pagel. "As soon as you have a large society generating lots of goods and services, this wealth can be put to use by someone who can grab the reins of power. The most immediate way to do this is to align yourself with a supreme deity and then make lists of things people can and cannot do, and these become 'morals' when applied to our social behaviour.Anonymous Behaviour Sayings By Anonymous: So what are MHGs for? "They are tools of control used by purveyors of religion
The effect of legalised prostitution on women outside prostitution is to lower the status of all women. Women are recognised by the state in this system as the appropriate objects of male penetration with no consideration for their personhood or pleasure. This teaches that the penetration and use of an unwilling woman is 'sex', an idea that lies at the root of sexual violence against women in general. There is no chance of developing a sexuality of equality in which women's pleasure, right to say no, and bodily integrity are respected whilst the violence of prostitution is allowed to continue with state support for men's behaviour.Sheila Jeffreys Behaviour Sayings By Sheila Jeffreys: The effect of legalised prostitution on women outside prostitution is to lower the status of
My life is a constant struggle between what they want me to be, what I want me to be, and who I'm being instead.Kyle Schmalenberg Behaviour Sayings By Kyle Schmalenberg: My life is a constant struggle between what they want me to be, what I
Freedom is the only style. That is why I never speak about beauty or beautiful products but 'good products'. Nowadays, we have so many challenges; it is not really a priority to care for beauty. The only way for us is to focus on an ethic and ecological behaviour.Philippe Starck Behaviour Sayings By Philippe Starck: Freedom is the only style. That is why I never speak about beauty or beautiful
I don't reply. Surely Tucker wouldn't bring someone back to a room knowing that I'll be in the bed too, first shot. He wouldn't do anything with her after last night, this morning and this afternoon, second shot. Although he is all over her and has been since we got here, third shot. Maybe I didn't drop my knickers quick enough, fourth shot. He's probably laughing at me for everything I told him about the dream and stuff I wince and slam the now empty jager bomb glass down.R.S. Burnett Behaviour Sayings By R.S. Burnett: I don't reply. Surely Tucker wouldn't bring someone back to a room knowing that I'll
It would be rare to find a woman who hadn't endured some kind of ridicule for stepping out of line. When the market dictates that a woman's value is primarily attached to her looks and deferential behaviour, it's the threat of sexually degrading insults that help to keep her in check.Clementine Ford Behaviour Sayings By Clementine Ford: It would be rare to find a woman who hadn't endured some kind of ridicule
However, the observed orbit of Uranus consistently differed from what Newton's theory predicted. This puzzle was solved in 1846 by two scientists, Adams in England and Leverrier in France, working independently. They suggested that there was another planet, as yet undiscovered, exerting an additional gravitational force on Uranus. Adams and Leverrier were able to calculate the mass and position that this planet would have to have, if its gravitational pull was indeed responsible for Uranus' strange behaviour. Shortly afterwards the planet Neptune was discovered, almost exactly where Adams and Leverrier had predicted. NowSamir Okasha Behaviour Sayings By Samir Okasha: However, the observed orbit of Uranus consistently differed from what Newton's theory predicted. This puzzle
Statistics show that the nature of English crime is reverting to its oldest habits. In a country where so many desire status and wealth, petty annoyances can spark disproportionately violent behaviour. We become frustrated because we feel powerless, invisible, unheard. We crave celebrity, but that's not easy to come by, so we settle for notoriety. Envy and bitterness drive a new breed of lawbreakers, replacing the old motives of poverty and the need for escape. But how do you solve crimes which no longer have traditional motives?Christopher Fowler Behaviour Sayings By Christopher Fowler: Statistics show that the nature of English crime is reverting to its oldest habits. In
Why," he was saying, "why should one not tolerate this life, since so little suffices to deprive one of it? So little brings it into being, so little brightens it, so little blights it, so little bears it away. Otherwise, who would tolerate the blows of fate and the humiliations of a successful career, the swindling of grocers, the prices of butchers, the water of milkmen, the irritation of parents, the fury of teachers, the bawling of sergeant-majors, the turpitude of the beasts, the lamentations of the dead-beats, the silence of infinite space, the smell of cauliflower or the passivity of the wooden horses on a merry-g0-round, were it not for his knowledge that the bad and proliferative behaviour of certain minute cells (gesture) or the trajectory of a bullet traced by an involuntary, irresponsible, anonymous individual might unexpectedly come and cause all these cares to evaporate into the blue heavens.Raymond Queneau Behaviour Sayings By Raymond Queneau: Why," he was saying, "why should one not tolerate this life, since so little suffices
In the process of trying to understand others' difficult behaviour, I've found it is very helpful to realise that no one chooses to be unhappy. If someone is unhappy, they will be so because they genuinely cannot see how to do otherwise.Torey L. Hayden Behaviour Sayings By Torey L. Hayden: In the process of trying to understand others' difficult behaviour, I've found it is very
The trouble with the world today, she thought, was that people were not prepared to stand up to bad behaviour.Alexander McCall Smith Behaviour Sayings By Alexander McCall Smith: The trouble with the world today, she thought, was that people were not prepared to
Things external to her may have their own weight and dimension: but within inside us she gives them such measures as she wills: death is terrifying to Cicero, desirable to Cato, indifferent to Socrates. Health, consciousness, authority, knowledge, beauty and their opposites doff their garments as they enter the soul and receive new vestments, coloured with qualities of her own choosing: brown or green; light or dark; bitter or sweet, deep or shallow, as it pleases each of the individual souls, who have not agreed together on the truth of their practices, rules or ideas. Each soul is Queen in her own state. So let us no longer seek excuses from the external qualities of anything, the responsibility lies within ourselves. Our good or our bad depends on us alone. So let us make our offertories and our vows to ourselves not to Fortune: she has no power over our behaviour, on the contrary our souls drag Fortune in their train and mould her to their own idea.Michel De Montaigne Behaviour Sayings By Michel De Montaigne: Things external to her may have their own weight and dimension: but within inside us
Her friend who treated her maid badly was not a wicked person. She behaved well towards her family ... but when it came to her maid ... she seemed to have little concern for her feelings. It occurred to Mma Ramotswe that such behaviour was no more than ignorance; an inability to understand the hopes and aspirations of others. Theat understanding ... was the beginning of all morality. If you knew how a person was feeling, if you could imagine yourself in her position, then surely it would be impossible to inflict further pain. Inflicting pain in such circumstances would be like hurting oneself.Alexander McCall Smith Behaviour Sayings By Alexander McCall Smith: Her friend who treated her maid badly was not a wicked person. She behaved well
First, Paul is anxious that everyone who professes Christian faith should allow the gospel to transform the whole of their lives, so that the outward signs of the faith express a living reality that comes from the deepest parts of the personality. Second, he is also anxious that each Christian, and especially every teacher of the faith, should know how to build up the community in mutual love and support, rather than, by the wrong sort of teaching or behaviour, tearing it apart.N. T. Wright Behaviour Sayings By N. T. Wright: First, Paul is anxious that everyone who professes Christian faith should allow the gospel to
It seems that not being religious is a form of risk-taking, consistent with other patterns of short-sighted behaviour in men.Rodney Stark Behaviour Sayings By Rodney Stark: It seems that not being religious is a form of risk-taking, consistent with other patterns
People are different in reality from the way you've seen them while making scenarios in your mind. For one thing, they're less consistent. They surprise you all the time.Ruth Rendell Behaviour Sayings By Ruth Rendell: People are different in reality from the way you've seen them while making scenarios in
Love is the faith that that one person will stand by you, through your mistakes, through your rotten behaviour, through it all, even if no one else does. That one person can make your world. But without that one person, the whole world falls to pieces.Summerita Rhayne Behaviour Sayings By Summerita Rhayne: Love is the faith that that one person will stand by you, through your mistakes,
The biggest hindrance in life is to live for other people and crave for their approval. This kind of behaviour diminishes your God given purpose and it leads you to live a barren life. Free yourself from the prison of pretence and live a purposeful lifestyle.Euginia Herlihy Behaviour Sayings By Euginia Herlihy: The biggest hindrance in life is to live for other people and crave for their
True Christian fortitude consists in strength of mind, through grace, exerted in two things; in ruling and suppressing the evil and unruly passions and affections of the mind; and in steadfastly and freely exerting and following good affections and dispositions, without being hindered by sinful fear or the opposition of enemies ... Though Christian fortitude appears in withstanding and counteracting the enemies that are without us; yet it much more appears in resisting and suppressing the enemies that are within us; because they are our worst and strongest enemies and have greatest advantage against us. The strength of the good soldier of Jesus Christ appears in nothing more than in steadfastly maintaining the holy calm, meekness, sweetness, and benevolence of his mind, amidst all the storms, injuries, strange behaviour, and surprising acts and events of this evil and unreasonable world.Jonathan Edwards Behaviour Sayings By Jonathan Edwards: True Christian fortitude consists in strength of mind, through grace, exerted in two things; in
Dismantle your friend to see how he behaves. If he smiles with a beautiful grin, then take him back, he's worthy to be called a friend.Michael Bassey Johnson Behaviour Sayings By Michael Bassey Johnson: Dismantle your friend to see how he behaves. If he smiles with a beautiful grin,
The formation of scales and of the web of harmony is a product of artistic invention, and is in no way given by the natural structure or by the natural behaviour of our hearing, as used to be generally maintained hitherto.Hermann Von Helmholtz Behaviour Sayings By Hermann Von Helmholtz: The formation of scales and of the web of harmony is a product of artistic
If you want to foresee the behavior of someone, their personality is a better predictor than their intelligence.Luigina Sgarro Behaviour Sayings By Luigina Sgarro: If you want to foresee the behavior of someone, their personality is a better predictor
Beethoven was a deeply political man in the broadest sense of the word. He was not interested in daily politics, but concerned with questions of moral behaviour and the larger questions of right and wrong affecting the entire society.Daniel Barenboim Behaviour Sayings By Daniel Barenboim: Beethoven was a deeply political man in the broadest sense of the word.

What I've learnt - to my cost - on several occasions in my life, is that people will put up with all manner of bad behaviour so long as you're giving them what they want. They'll laugh and get into it and enjoy the anecdotes and the craziness and the mayhem as long as you're going your job well, but the minute you're not, you're fucked. They'll wipe their hands of you without a second glance.Russell Brand Behaviour Sayings By Russell Brand: What I've learnt - to my cost - on several occasions in my life, is

I had a terrible temper, after all, and though it rarely erupted, when it did it frightened me and anyone near its epicenter. It was the only crack, but a disturbing one, in the otherwise vacuum-sealed casing of my behavior.Kay Redfield Jamison Behaviour Sayings By Kay Redfield Jamison: I had a terrible temper, after all, and though it rarely erupted, when it did
Sage!" he called. "You have got to see this."
Eddie and I reached the next green and stared in astonishment. Then I burst out laughing.
We had reached Dracula's Castle. ( ... )
I couldn't stop laughing. Adrian and Eddie looked at me as though they'd never seen me before.
"I don't think I've ever heard her laugh," Eddie told him.
"Certainly not the reaction I was expecting," mused Adrian. "I'd been counting on abject terror, judging from past Alchemist behaviour. I didn't think you liked vampires.

(Q: From an outsider's perspective, what you call "chaos magick" has a lot of rules, discipline, and order involved, and doesn't seem very chaotic at all. What would you say to such a person?)
A: I differentiate sternly between Chaos and Entropy. Only highly ordered and structured systems can display complex creative and unpredictable behaviour, and then only if they have the capacity to act with a degree of freedom and randomness. Systems which lack structure and organisation usually fail to produce anything much, they just tend to drift down the entropy gradient. This applies both to people and to organisations.
Peter J. Carroll Behaviour Sayings By Peter J. Carroll: (Q: From an outsider's perspective, what you call "chaos magick" has a lot of rules,
Psychotherapy and counselling should make people aware of themselves and of the difficulties which they face. This then gives them the freedom to choose for themselves. In this sense, unlike behaviour therapy, psychotherapy is value-free: no advice, suggestions or recriminations are given. Indeed the only value of psychotherapy is respect for the individual. Such respect, however, in a mechanistic and objectifying society ... becomes a political act.Paul Kline Behaviour Sayings By Paul Kline: Psychotherapy and counselling should make people aware of themselves and of the difficulties which they
All living beings have received their weapons through the same process of evolution that moulded their impulses and inhibitions; for the structural plan of the body and the system of behaviour of a species are parts of the same whole ... Wordsworth is right: there is only one being in possession of weapons which do not grow on his body and of whose working plan, therefore, the instincts of his species know nothing and in the usage of which he has no correspondingly adequate inhibition.Konrad Lorenz Behaviour Sayings By Konrad Lorenz: All living beings have received their weapons through the same process of evolution that moulded
Radical feminist theorists do not seek to make gender a bit more flexible, but to eliminate it. They are gender abolitionists, and understand gender to provide the framework and rationale for male dominance. In the radical feminist approach, masculinity is the behaviour of the male ruling class and femininity is the behaviour of the subordinate class of women. Thus gender can have no place in the egalitarian future that feminism aims to create.Sheila Jeffreys Behaviour Sayings By Sheila Jeffreys: Radical feminist theorists do not seek to make gender a bit more flexible, but to
