Mr. Casaubon had never had a strong bodily frame, and his soul was sensitive without being enthusiastic: it was too languid to thrill out of self-consciousness into passionate delight; it went on fluttering in the swampy ground where it was hatched, thinking of its wings and never flying.George Eliot Being Over Sensitive Sayings By George Eliot: Mr. Casaubon had never had a strong bodily frame, and his soul was sensitive without
If we are at all sensitive to the life around us, to one another's pains and joys,
to the beauty and fragility of the Earth, it is all about being broken open, allowing ourselves to
step out from out hardened veneers and expose our core, allowing ourselves to be vulnerable in our emotional response to the world. And how can we not respond? This is what I mean by being 'broken open.' To engage. To love. Any one of these actions of the heart will lead to a personal transformation that bears collective gifts.
Terry Tempest Williams Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Terry Tempest Williams: If we are at all sensitive to the life around us, to one another's pains
The advantages of being a postman seemed more and more dubious. It is not a congenial profession for anyone who is at all sensitive, for people visit upon the postman all their first annoyance at receiving a couple of bills when they looked for a love-letter, and if a packet is insufficiently stamped they hand over the pennies as though to a despicable bandit, too outrageous to be denied, too groveling to be feared.Sylvia Townsend Warner Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Sylvia Townsend Warner: The advantages of being a postman seemed more and more dubious. It is not a
Becoming sensitive to the background causes of one's thoughts and feelings can - paradoxically - allow for greater creative control over one's life. It is one thing to bicker with your wife because you are in a bad mood; it is another to realize that your mood and behavior have been caused by low blood sugar. This understanding reveals you to be a biochemical puppet, of course, but it also allows you to grab hold of one of your strings: A bit of food may be all that your personality requires. Getting behind our concious thoughts and feelings can allow us to steer a more intelligent course through our lives (while knowing, of course, that we are ultimately being steered).Sam Harris Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Sam Harris: Becoming sensitive to the background causes of one's thoughts and feelings can - paradoxically -
I distrust great men ... I believe in aristocracy, though. Its members are to be found in all nations and classes, and all through the ages, and there is a secret understanding between them when they meet ... They are sensitive for others as well as for themselves, they are considerate without being fussy, their pluck is not swankiness but the power to endure and they can take a joke.E. M. Forster Being Over Sensitive Sayings By E. M. Forster: I distrust great men ... I believe in aristocracy, though. Its members are to be
We're not all perfect. People always say to me: "Oh you seem happy all the time." But I'm not happy all the time. I'm a human being. I'm very sensitive. I hurt like anybody else. But I do try my best to have a good attitude and I set about tryin' to take care of myself knowing I'm not going to be exactly right, so I just try to see what I can do to improve every single day.Dolly Parton Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Dolly Parton: We're not all perfect. People always say to me: "Oh you seem happy all the
When I was this kid's age, you'd be burned alive for such talk. Being a homosexual was unthinkable, and so you denied it, and found a girlfriend who was willing to settle for the sensitive type. On dates, you'd remind her that sex before marriage was just that, sex: what dogs did in the front yard. This as opposed to making love, which was more what you were about. A true union of souls could take anywhere from eight to ten years to properly establish, but you were willing to wait, and for this the mothers loved you. You sometimes discussed it with them over an iced tea, preferably on the back porch when you girlfriend's brother was mowing the lawn with his shirt off.David Sedaris Being Over Sensitive Sayings By David Sedaris: When I was this kid's age, you'd be burned alive for such talk. Being a
The great mistake of contemporary life is that we have made such a virtue of intellectual growth while almost totally ignoring the necessity of conscience growth. We have failed to understand that individual evolution can take place not only in mental but in moral power. The earth tragically today is full of people who remain fixated on a childish level of conscience. What an illusion has blinded the human race: that our conscience is given to us once and for all at birth and we ourselves have to do little or nothing about it ... The truth is that our moral capacity is purely potential and needs strenuous training, education and development. It is certainly not an organic power that comes to us at birth, like breathing, which demands little attention from us as long as we live ... A revolution has to take place in our thinking about morality. We have to become as sensitive about being moral morons as we are now anxious about being intellectual idiots.Joshua Loth Liebman Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Joshua Loth Liebman: The great mistake of contemporary life is that we have made such a virtue of
Once you're done being president, you tend to want to defend your record more than plumb your inner feelings. I find it hard to imagine Obama going home at night and writing sensitive, introspective journal entries about his meeting with John Boehner.Gail Collins Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Gail Collins: Once you're done being president, you tend to want to defend your record more than
To be sensitive, as ideologically defined, requires that one not merely accept but "affirm" other people's way of life or even "celebrate" diversity in general. Like other demands for "sensitivity," this demand offers no reason - unless fear of being disapproved, denounced, or harassed is a reason.Thomas Sowell Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Thomas Sowell: To be sensitive, as ideologically defined, requires that one not merely accept but "affirm" other
A student of color in one of my classes, for example, once told me that she noticed my cutting her off during class, something she didn't think I did with white students. I could have weighed in with my professional authority and said it wasn't true, that she was imagining it, that I treated all my students that way, that she was being too sensitive, that I travel all over the country speaking about issues of inequality and injustice, so certainly I was above such things. But what I said to her was that I was truly sorry she'd had that experience. I wasn't aware of doing that, I told her, and the fact that I didn't consciously mean to was beside the point.

To respond in this way, I had to de-center myself from my privilege and make her experience and not mine the point of the conversation. I ended by telling her I would do everything I could to oay attention to this problem in the future to make sure it didn't happen again.
Allan G. Johnson Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Allan G. Johnson: A student of color in one of my classes, for example, once told me that
What else is it that should trace the insuperable line? Is it the faculty of reason or perhaps the faculty of discourse? But a full-grown horse or dog is beyond comparison a more rational, as well as more conversable animal, than an infant of a day or a week or even a month old. But suppose they were otherwise, what would it avail? The question is not, Can they reason?, nor Can they talk? but, Can they suffer? Why should the law refuse its protection to any sensitive being? The time will come when humanity will extend its mantle over everything which breathes ...Jeremy Bentham Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Jeremy Bentham: What else is it that should trace the insuperable line? Is it the faculty of
I'm a mite worried about how Foodle will respond to being out here," her aunt continued. "She's so sensitive to strange surroundings." Foodle apparently excelled at hiding her sensitivities, for she was chasing her tail with great enthusiasm.Sabrina Jeffries Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Sabrina Jeffries: I'm a mite worried about how Foodle will respond to being out here," her aunt
At some point, I figured that it would be more effective and far funnier to embrace the ugliest, most terrifying things in the world
the Holocaust, racism, rape, et cetera. But for the sake of comedy, and the comedian's personal sanity, this requires a certain emotional distance. It's akin to being a shrink or a social worker. you might think that the most sensitive, empathetic person would make the best social worker, but that person would end up being soup on the floor. It really takes someone strong
someone, dare I say, with a big fat wall up
to work in a pool of heartbreak all day and not want to fucking kill yourself. But adopting a persona at once ignorant and arrogant allowed me to say what I didn't mean, even preach the opposite of what I believed. For me, it was a funny way to be sincere. And like the jokes in a roast, the hope is that the genuine sentiment
maybe even a goodness underneath the joke (however brutal) transcends.
Sarah Silverman Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Sarah Silverman: At some point, I figured that it would be more effective and far funnier to
I think, for me, Julian Schnabel set a great precedent in being able to cross over so successfully. I feel like his artwork is kind of big, grand, and bombastic, yet the films that he makes are very beautifully sensitive, and I just feel that his filmmaking sensibility is very different from his artwork.Sam Taylor-Johnson Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Sam Taylor-Johnson: I think, for me, Julian Schnabel set a great precedent in being able to cross
In some circles emptiness is even made a goal to be sought after, under the guise of being "adaptable." Nowhere is this illustrated more arrestingly than in an article in Life Magazine entitled "The Wife Problem."* Summarizing a series of researches which first appeared in Fortune about the role of the wives of corporation executives, this article points out that whether or not the husband is promoted depends a great deal on whether his wife fits the "pattern." Time was when only the minister's wife was looked over by the trustees of the church before her husband was hired; now the wife of the corporation executive is screened, covertly or overtly, by most companies like the steel or wool or any other commodity the company uses. She must be highly gregarious, not intellectual or conspicuous, and she must have very "sensitive antennae" (again that radar set!) so that she can be forever adapting.Rollo May Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Rollo May: In some circles emptiness is even made a goal to be sought after, under the
Love is an afternoon of fishing when I'd sooner be at the ballet.
Love is eating burnt toast and lumpy graving with a big smile.
Love is hearing the words 'You're beautiful' as I fail to squeeze into my fat jeans.
Love is refusing to bring up the past, even if doing so would be a slam dunk to prove your point.
Love is your hand wiping away my tears, trying to erase streaks of mascara.
Love is the warm hug that extinguishes an argument.
Love is a humbly-uttered apology, even if not at fault.
Love is easy to recognize but so hard to define; however, I think it boils down to this ...
Love is caring so much about the feelings of someone else, you sacrifice whatever it takes to help him or her feel better.
In other words, love is my heart being sensitive to yours.
Richelle E. Goodrich Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Richelle E. Goodrich: Love is an afternoon of fishing when I'd sooner be at the ballet. Love is
If you are a cooperative animal, you need to watch what you get. If you, or even a whole community, invest in something but then a few individuals receive a much larger return, it's not a good arrangement. If it happens consistently, it's time to look for an arrangement that is more beneficial. That's why we're so sensitive to how rewards are being divided.Frans De Waal Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Frans De Waal: If you are a cooperative animal, you need to watch what you get. If you,
The men of those days ... were absolutely not the same people that we are now; it was not the same race as now, in our age, really, it seems we are a different species ... In those days they were men of one idea, but now we are more nervous, more developed, more sensitive; men capable of two or three ideas at once ... Modern men are broader-minded - and I swear that this prevents their being so all-of-a-piece as they were in those days.Fyodor Dostoyevsky Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Fyodor Dostoyevsky: The men of those days ... were absolutely not the same people that we are
I love being in love, but I also love other things, like not being jealous, overly sensitive, or needy.Dark Jar Tin Zoo Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Dark Jar Tin Zoo: I love being in love, but I also love other things, like not being jealous,
Those who are critical don't like being criticized, and those who are insensitive have a deficiency in their senses.Suzy Kassem Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Suzy Kassem: Those who are critical don't like being criticized, and those who are insensitive have a
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 Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Alan Watts: How is it possible that a being with such sensitive jewels as the eyes, such
And Emily had yet to shed a single tear. It troubled her all the way back to the city, and she rode with one hand sandwiched between her cheek and the cool, shuddering glass of the limousine window, as if that might help. She tried whispering 'Daddy' to herself, tried closing her eyes and picturing his face, but it didn't work. Then she thought of something that made her throat close up: she might never have been her father's baby, but he had always called her 'little rabbit.' And she was crying easily now, causing her mother to reach over and squeeze her hand; the only trouble was that she couldn't be sure whether she cried for her father or for Warren Maddock, or Maddox, who was back in South Carolina now being shipped out to a division.
But she stopped crying abruptly when she realized that even that was a lie: these tears, as always before in her life, were wholly for herself - for poor, sensitive Emily Grimes whom nobody understood, and who understood nothing.
Richard Yates Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Richard Yates: And Emily had yet to shed a single tear. It troubled her all the way
The reaction on the part of the apes, limited as it was to about one subject in every three or four, has just that character of being common, yet individual, that belongs to aesthetic experiences. Some are sensitive to the sight, and the rest are not; to some of them it seems to convey something
to others it is just a thing, a toadstool or what you will.
Susanne K. Langer Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Susanne K. Langer: The reaction on the part of the apes, limited as it was to about one
It is because I think so much of warm and sensitive hearts, that I would spare them from being wounded.Charles Dickens Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Charles Dickens: It is because I think so much of warm and sensitive hearts, that I would
Can't two people be in love and both be so intelligent and so sensitive that there is freedom and absence of a center that makes for conflict? Conflict is not the feeling of being in love. The feeling of being in love is utterly without conflict. There is no loss of energy in being in love. The loss of energy is in the tail, in everything that follows - jealousy, possessiveness, suspicion, doubt, the fear of losing that love, the constant demand for reassurance and security. Surely, it must be possible to function in a sexual relationship with someone you love without the nightmare which usually follows. Of course it is.Jiddu Krishnamurti Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Jiddu Krishnamurti: Can't two people be in love and both be so intelligent and so sensitive that
By being too sensitive I have wasted my life.Arthur Rimbaud Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Arthur Rimbaud: By being too sensitive I have wasted my life.
The aim of this step is threefold: (1) to recognize and appreciate the unknown and unknowable, (2) to become sensitive to overconfident assertions of certainty in ourselves and other people, and (3) to make ourselves aware of the numinous mystery of each human being we encounter during the day. First,Karen Armstrong Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Karen Armstrong: The aim of this step is threefold: (1) to recognize and appreciate the unknown and
I'm very sensitive about being held up as some sort of example. I don't consider myself any sort of role model at all. I have great advantages over many other working women, and my schedule allows me more time with my kids than many working women have.Jane Pauley Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Jane Pauley: I'm very sensitive about being held up as some sort of example. I don't consider
Whether we do it consciously or subconsciously, we tend to organize our lives to display our identity as accurately as possible. Our lifestyle choices often reveal our values, or at least what we'd like people to perceive as our values ... as we make our everyday choices, we continuously calculate not just which choices best match who we are and what we want but also how those choices will be interpreted by others. We look for cues in our social environment to figure out what others think of this or that, which can require being sensitive to the most localized and up-to-date details of what a particular choice means.Sheena Iyengar Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Sheena Iyengar: Whether we do it consciously or subconsciously, we tend to organize our lives to display
Physically it's kind of lassitude, the apathy and tiredness that precedes the flu or some other illness, or death. My legs ache and feel heavy, my skin has become more sensitive to cold and to heat, to the hardness or rigidity of things. Nothing interests me, I feel uncomfortable being still but would feel even more uncomfortable if I moved. I don't know whether speaking is painful or just boring. I sit here, staring straight ahead, with no desires, no needs, hollow. I'm not even sad. I feel only passivity and indifference.Antonio Lobo Antunes Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Antonio Lobo Antunes: Physically it's kind of lassitude, the apathy and tiredness that precedes the flu or some

I'm not responsible for my photographs. Photography is not documentary, but intuition, a poetic experience. It's drowning yourself, dissolving yourself, and then sniff, sniff, sniff - being sensitive to coincidence. You can't go looking for it; you can't want it, or you won't get it. First you must lose your self. Then it happens.Henri Cartier-Bresson Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Henri Cartier-Bresson: I'm not responsible for my photographs. Photography is not documentary, but intuition, a poetic experience.
I've rarely seen Parvati this upset... Despite being a killer, a demon princess and the heir to Ravana's throne, Parvati, you may be surprised to hear, is rather sensitive. I suppose it's her human half... She's been lonely for most of those four millennia. Lonely and homeless... She'd do anything for you, you know that, don't you?"
"I didn't ask her to."
"Friends shouldn't need to ask.
Sarwat Chadda Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Sarwat Chadda: I've rarely seen Parvati this upset... Despite being a killer, a demon princess and the
They wanted me to play more sports because they were acutely sensitive to their children being one hundred percent American, and they believed that all Americans played sports and loved sports.Martin Lewis Perl Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Martin Lewis Perl: They wanted me to play more sports because they were acutely sensitive to their children
The sound circulated like an autonomous being whose tentacles needed to experience a sensitive awareness of the terrain.Ondjaki Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Ondjaki: The sound circulated like an autonomous being whose tentacles needed to experience a sensitive awareness
The magic in these Masonic rituals is very, very old. And way back in those days, it worked. As time went on, and it started being used for spectacle, to consolidate what were only secular appearances of power, it began to lose its zip. But the words, moves, and machinery have been more or less faithfully carried down over the millennia, through the grim rationalizing of the World, and so the magic is still there, though latent, needing only to touch the right sensitive head to reassert itself.Thomas Pynchon Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Thomas Pynchon: The magic in these Masonic rituals is very, very old. And way back in those
Millions of people have decided not to be sensitive. They have grown thick skins around themselves just to avoid being hurt by anybody. But it is at great cost. Nobody can hurt them, but nobody can make them happy either.Rajneesh Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Rajneesh: Millions of people have decided not to be sensitive. They have grown thick skins around
We often add to our pain and suffering by being overly sensitive, over-reacting to minor things, and sometimes taking things too personally.Dalai Lama Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Dalai Lama: We often add to our pain and suffering by being overly sensitive, over-reacting to minor
Israel's first king, Saul, looked like he was born for the role. He was tall, handsome, intelligent, and sensitive to God's leading. But he eventually lost most of his attractive qualities, the most important being obedience.Charles R. Swindoll Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Charles R. Swindoll: Israel's first king, Saul, looked like he was born for the role. He was tall,
You know, Quincy Jones was a great mentor, but he was a man in a man's world. Fortunately he's a very sensitive man and a beautiful human being, and even though he was 14 or 15 years older than me, he's a capable human being and has great communication skills.Lesley Gore Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Lesley Gore: You know, Quincy Jones was a great mentor, but he was a man in a

The only thing scarier than telling my secrets would be keeping them. When the "sensitive information" you carry is your own history, going mute to protect the system doesn't keep you from being destroyed; it just means that you destroy yourself.Martha N. Beck Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Martha N. Beck: The only thing scarier than telling my secrets would be keeping them. When the "sensitive

Bennis Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Warren G. Bennis: Successful leadership is not about being tough or soft, sensitive or assertive, but about a
Julia's fears of coming forward with the violence were based on anticipated as well as actual responses from friends and acquaintances. I also recognized Julia's introverted and moody side, but I knew she wasn't capable of inciting her husband to kick, choke, and lock her in her home like an animal. Besides, considering how she was being treated, it was not surprising that she seemed moody, sensitive, even depressed. More important, nothing any woman could do could justify such behavior.Susan Weitzman Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Susan Weitzman: Julia's fears of coming forward with the violence were based on anticipated as well as
They have difficulty when being observed (at work, say, or performing at a music recital) or judged for general worthiness (dating, job interviews). But there were also new insights. The highly sensitive tend to be philosophical or spiritual in their orientation, rather than materialistic or hedonistic. They dislike small talk. They often describe themselves as creative or intuitive (just as Aron's husband had described her). They dream vividly, and can often recall their dreams the next day. They love music, nature, art, physical beauty. They feel exceptionally strong emotions - sometimes acute bouts of joy, but also sorrow, melancholy, and fear. Highly sensitive people also process information about their environments - both physical and emotional - unusually deeply. They tend to notice subtleties that others miss - anotherSusan Cain Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Susan Cain: They have difficulty when being observed (at work, say, or performing at a music recital)
This instinctive repulsion which tradespeople inspire in men of sensitive feeling is one of the very rare consolations for being so impoverished which are given to those of us who don't sell anything to anybody.Louis-Ferdinand Celine Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Louis-Ferdinand Celine: This instinctive repulsion which tradespeople inspire in men of sensitive feeling is one of the
The most entertaining songs don't always come from a nice place. In songs where I think I'm being really sensitive, they seem quite boring actually. I've found that the songs that come out of nastier, more misanthropic places are better.Jarvis Cocker Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Jarvis Cocker: The most entertaining songs don't always come from a nice place. In songs where I
I do not believe that one can become rich without being a shark; a sensitive man will never amass wealth.Petrus Borel Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Petrus Borel: I do not believe that one can become rich without being a shark; a sensitive
Are introverts arrogant? Hardly. I suppose this common misconception has to do with our being more intelligent, more reflective, more independent, more level-headed, more refined, and more sensitive than extroverts.Jonathan Rauch Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Jonathan Rauch: Are introverts arrogant? Hardly. I suppose this common misconception has to do with our being
You men can be such boneheads about these things. She doesn't know you the way I do. She's vulnerable right now. Her ex turned out to be an asshole and you come riding in-"
"There was no riding."
"-being the good guy, looking the way you do"-Brooke gestured to him-"wanting to talk and slow things down and be all sensitive with your coffee and your little blanket. What woman could resist that? My God, why didn't you just cuddle a puppy shirtless while you were at it?

I like men. I like the sound of their voices, the way they think. They're more sensitive than women. With a woman, everything is either this or that, black or white. But a man can see shades of gray. That's what I call being sensitive.Carolyn Jones Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Carolyn Jones: I like men. I like the sound of their voices, the way they think. They're
Jainism is the first religion that has made vegetarianism a fundamental necessity for transforming consciousness. And they are right. Killing just to eat makes your consciousness heavy, insensitive; and you need a very sensitive consciousness - very light, very loving, very compassionate. It is difficult for a non-vegetarian to be compassionate; and without being compassionate and loving you will be hindering your own progress.Rajneesh Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Rajneesh: Jainism is the first religion that has made vegetarianism a fundamental necessity for transforming consciousness.
So true it is, and so terrible, too, that up to a certain point the thought or sight of misery enlists our best affections; but, in certain special cases, beyond that point it does not. they err who would assert that invariable this is owing to the inherent selfishness of the human heart. It rather proceeds from a certain hopelessness of remedying excessive and organic ill. To a sensitive being, pity is not seldom pain. An when at last it is perceived that such pity cannot lead to effectual succor, common sense bides the soul be rid of it.Herman Melville Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Herman Melville: So true it is, and so terrible, too, that up to a certain point the
By its attempt to regulate and govern the private businesses, which are miscalled public accommodations in the bill, this proposal would inject the Government into the most sensitive areas of human contractual relations-agreements for personal services. In so doing, constitutional interpretations of long standing are being swept aside in favor of tortuous rationalizations which studiously ignore the constitutionally-forbidden imposition of involuntary servitude on citizensStrom Thurmond Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Strom Thurmond: By its attempt to regulate and govern the private businesses, which are miscalled public accommodations
For no one knows what lies under the sands of the world's great deserts. No one knows how many times poor Earth has reeled under blows from comets, has lost or captured moons, has changed its air, its very nature. No one knows what has existed and has vanished beyond recovery, evidence for the number of times man has understood and has forgotten again that his mind and flesh and life and movements are made of star stuff, sun stuff, planet stuff; that the sun's being is his, and what sort of events may be expected, because of the meshings of the planets - and how an intelligent husbanding of humanity's resources may be effected based on the most skilled and sensitive of forecasting, by those whose minds are instruments to record the celestial dance.Doris Lessing Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Doris Lessing: For no one knows what lies under the sands of the world's great deserts. No
There's just so, so many overlooked R&B artists and I think it's really about, again, being sensitive to whatever you're addressing culturally. I just always try to have a sensitivity to it and what that might make someone feel.Solange Knowles Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Solange Knowles: There's just so, so many overlooked R&B artists and I think it's really about, again,
This," Alaric explained to Sarah in what he thought was a kindly voice, "isn't love you're feeling. Only dopamine. Because Felix isn't like anyone else you know. Being a creature of the night, he's new and exciting and activates a neurotransmitter in your brain that releases feelings of euphoria when you're around him ... especially because you know you can never actually be together, and he seems complicated, and perhaps even sensitive and vulnerable at times. But I can assure you: he's anything but."
"How dare you?" Sarah demanded hotly. "It isn't dopa ... whatever! It's love! Love!
Meg Cabot Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Meg Cabot: This," Alaric explained to Sarah in what he thought was a kindly voice, "isn't love
Ultimately, I felt fortunate, because in many ways I did identify with aspects of being gay that were very stereotypical. I was a big theatre kid in high school, I was creative, I was very emotionally sensitive, even hypersensitive. I loved female divas.Christopher Rice Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Christopher Rice: Ultimately, I felt fortunate, because in many ways I did identify with aspects of being
I think we're past the time in history where you have to come out and say, "you know I'm just happy all the time! I'm a joker, I'm a crazy man!" you know kind of thing. I think people understand I can turn that switch on but I'm also a sensitive, normal human being with feelings and I know how to express those too.Jim Carrey Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Jim Carrey: I think we're past the time in history where you have to come out and
Many well-meaning Americans have bought into the PC speech code, thinking that by being extra careful not to offend anyone we will achieve unity. What they fail to realize is that this is a false unity that prevents us from talking about important issues and is a Far Left strategy to paralyze us while they change our nation. People have been led to become so sensitive that fault can be found in almost anything anyone says because somewhere, somehow, someone will be offended by it. To stop this, Americans need to recognize what is happening, speak up courageously, avoid fearful or angry responses, and ignore the barking and snarling as we put political correctness to bed forever.Ben Carson Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Ben Carson: Many well-meaning Americans have bought into the PC speech code, thinking that by being extra
To be a great and virtuous man appeared the highest honour that can befall a sensitive being; to be base and vicious, as many on record have been, appeared the lowest degradation, a condition more abject than that of the blind mole or harmless worm.Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley: To be a great and virtuous man appeared the highest honour that can befall a
The main thing to avoid being a casualty is simply this: to have a kind of intimate personal relationship with Jesus Christ whereby you're able to hear God speak to your heart, you're sensitive to what He's saying to you to do, and that you're willing to be obedient to Him.Charles Stanley Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Charles Stanley: The main thing to avoid being a casualty is simply this: to have a kind
She's just being sensitive. You put a girl in jail and forget about her for a few months, and they all take it so bloody personally."
"You forgot about her?"
"She's lucky I did. She'd been sent to kill Rhiannon."
"Then why isn't she dead?"
Celyn sighed. "It was a sad, weak attempt, really. She clearly didn't want to do it. Auntie Rhiannon just felt bad for her.

I've been all over the place in all kinds of living situations. Due to the fact that my mind is my own worst enemy. In a way I am perpetually and permanently in a state of rehabilitation m in an attempt to rehabilitate from the shock of being born.Some people are too sensitive to withstand that.Heather O'Neill Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Heather O'Neill: I've been all over the place in all kinds of living situations. Due to the
I always say people would rather be nice than right. I like to be nice too, but come on. People frequently ask me, what is my definition of politically correct. My answer is always the same: the elevation of sensitivity over truth. People would rather be nice than right, rather be sensitive than true. Well, being nice and sensitive are important, but they're not more important than being right; they're not more important than the truth.Bill Maher Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Bill Maher: I always say people would rather be nice than right. I like to be nice
When I was a kid watching comedians on TV and listening to their records they were the only ones that could make it all seem okay. They seemed to cut through the bullshit and disarm fears and horror by being clever and funny. I don't think I could have survived my childhood without watching stand-up comics. When I started doing comedy I didn't understand show business. I just wanted to be a comedian. Now, after twenty-five years of doing stand-up and the last two years of having long conversations with over two hundred comics I can honestly say they are some of the most thoughtful, philosophical, open-minded, sensitive, insightful, talented, self-centred, neurotic, compulsive, angry, fucked-up, sweet, creative people in the world.Marc Maron Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Marc Maron: When I was a kid watching comedians on TV and listening to their records they
The idea of self-effacement, the idea that you feel so powerless that the only tiny morsel of power you have is over your own ability to deny yourself food - that to me is a very profound and sad methodology and indicator of how powerless a lot of people feel in this world. That they will turn that onto themselves until they are physically smaller. I think it's affected my worldview a lot - just being sensitive and empathetic towards the ways people want to be small. I don't wish smallness for anyone.Carrie Brownstein Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Carrie Brownstein: The idea of self-effacement, the idea that you feel so powerless that the only tiny
You're too sensitive' victims of sexual abuse are told over and over by those whose reality depends on being insensitive. Most adults who have been in the victim role cringe when anyone tells them they are sensitive. In fact, sensitivity is a lovely trait and one to be cherished in any human being.Renee Fredrickson Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Renee Fredrickson: You're too sensitive' victims of sexual abuse are told over and over by those whose
This impression came out most for Maggie when, in their easier intervals, they had only themselves to regard, and when her companion's inveteracy of never passing first, of not sitting till she was seated, of not interrupting till she appeared to give leave, of not forgetting too familiarly that in addition to being important she was also sensitive, had the effect of throwing over their intercourse a kind of silver tissue of decorum. ItHenry James Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Henry James: This impression came out most for Maggie when, in their easier intervals, they had only
The thing that you learn in directing is that when you're on the floor, no matter how complex the shooting is ... you have to remain absolutely sensitive to every nuance of the behavior of the people around you. Because, ultimately, if you don't keep in mind the overall humanity, then the machine takes over and suddenly all you have are technically fine shots, technically good performances. The story's being told, but something's lacking, something mysterious, indefinable.Irvin Kershner Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Irvin Kershner: The thing that you learn in directing is that when you're on the floor, no
The more I dim my eyes over print and frazzle my brain over abstract ideas, the more I appreciate the delight of being basically an animal wrapped in a sensitive skin: sex, the resistance of rock, the taste and touch of snow, the feel of the sun, good wine and a rare beefsteak and the company of friends around a fire with a guitar and lousy old cowboy songs. Despair: I'll never be a scholar, never be a decent good Christian. Just a hedonist, a pagan, a primitive romanticEdward Abbey Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Edward Abbey: The more I dim my eyes over print and frazzle my brain over abstract ideas,
I believe that there are certain attributes in a woman that give her some advantages over a man. Women are usually more honest, more sensitive to issues and bring a stronger sense of commitment and dedication to what they do. Maybe because they were mothers, and being a mother you have that special attention for the family, for the young, for children.Ellen Johnson Sirleaf Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Ellen Johnson Sirleaf: I believe that there are certain attributes in a woman that give her some advantages
Every sensitive person should make his point of view let known, at least, to one person other than yourself on every subject that gets you worked up. This is basic to every social being. And like theory of vibration it gains momentum as the time passes. However, it also happens that it can turn out to be wasted effort. Because we are common people. The fact that we are of no consequence, so are our utterances and statements, makes us indifferent to a lot of issues and situations around us. However, in a set-up we live in, it becomes incumbent upon every educated individual to air our views for the general good of all. Like wise, as public-spirited individuals we must believe in doing something, rather than grumble at home over the breakfast table that the World is not a pleasant place. After all, lighting a lamp is wiser than cursing the darkness.Manasa Rao Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Manasa Rao: Every sensitive person should make his point of view let known, at least, to one
Radicals must be resilient, adaptable to shifting political circumstances, and sensitive enough to the process of action and reaction to avoid being trapped by their own tactics and forced to travel a road not of their choosing. In short, radicals must have a degree of control over the flow of events.Saul Alinsky Being Over Sensitive Sayings By Saul Alinsky: Radicals must be resilient, adaptable to shifting political circumstances, and sensitive enough to the process
