Without God we are but bruised reeds, ever threatened by the prospect of being crushed by life's uncaring millstone. Without God we are nothing, our lives worthless, our days an endless circular tread. Without God we stand condemned, doomed to a life without the precious gift of hope.T. Davis Bunn Circular Sayings By T. Davis Bunn: Without God we are but bruised reeds, ever threatened by the prospect of being crushed
In the products of the unconscious we discover mandala symbols, that is, circular and quaternity figures which express wholeness, and whenever we wish to express wholeness, we employ just such figures.Carl Jung Circular Sayings By Carl Jung: In the products of the unconscious we discover mandala symbols, that is, circular and quaternity
Our argument is not flatly circular, but something like it. It has the form, figuratively speaking, of a closed curve in space.Willard Van Orman Quine Circular Sayings By Willard Van Orman Quine: Our argument is not flatly circular, but something like it. It has the form, figuratively
Caroline, beside herself, dragged me down to her, her breast was against mine, and by a circular movement seemed to caress it. The pretty strawberries which crowned her breasts, jealous at meeting others as fair, endeavoured to engage them in combat.Felicite De Choiseul-Meuse Circular Sayings By Felicite De Choiseul-Meuse: Caroline, beside herself, dragged me down to her, her breast was against mine, and by
I went into the ministry to use the church to elicit political change according to a soft Marxist vision of wealth distribution and proletarian empowerment. Edrita [his wife] could sense that I was on a long and uncertain path. She was always more conservative than I, but she did share my basic social values and was willing at least to let me test my political follies ... Whenever I read the New Testament after 1950, I was trying to read it entirely without its crucial premises of incarnation and resurrection. That required a lot of circular reasoning for me to establish what the text said. I habitually assumed that truth in religion was finally reducible to economics (with Marx) or psychosexual motives (with Freud) or self assertive power (with Nietzsche). It was truly a self-deceptive time for me, but I had no inkling of its insidious dangers.Thomas C. Oden Circular Sayings By Thomas C. Oden: I went into the ministry to use the church to elicit political change according to
The scene fascinated me: a round straw hat; the funnel leaning left, the stairway leaning right; the white drawbridge, its railings made of chain; white suspenders crossed on the back of a man below; circular iron machinery; a mast that cut into the sky, completing a triangle.Alfred Stieglitz Circular Sayings By Alfred Stieglitz: The scene fascinated me: a round straw hat; the funnel leaning left, the stairway leaning
There is no progress: there is perpetual movement, displacement, which is circular, spiral, endless. Every man has his own destiny: the only imperative is to follow it, to accept it, no matter where it lead him.Henry Miller Circular Sayings By Henry Miller: There is no progress: there is perpetual movement, displacement, which is circular, spiral, endless. Every
The past is there, but life is circular. I have a strong sense of the circularity of time.Richard Flanagan Circular Sayings By Richard Flanagan: The past is there, but life is circular. I have a strong sense of the
You have [Donald] Trump and [Ted] Cruz battling it out, and the moderate establishment candidates like Chris Christie or Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, John Kasich - they have formed a circular firing squad.Mara Liasson Circular Sayings By Mara Liasson: You have [Donald] Trump and [Ted] Cruz battling it out, and the moderate establishment candidates
True feeling is always circular - either circular, or paradoxical - simply because its cause and its expression are tow halves of the very same thing! Love cannot be reduced to a catalogue of reasons why, and a catalogue of reasons cannot be put together into love. Any man who disagrees with me has never been in love - not truly.Eleanor Catton Circular Sayings By Eleanor Catton: True feeling is always circular - either circular, or paradoxical - simply because its cause
We see only the simple motion of descent, since that other circular one common to the Earth, the tower, and ourselves remains imperceptible. There remains perceptible to us only that of the stone, which is not shared by us; and, because of this, sense shows it as by a straight line, always parallel to the tower, which is built upright and perpendicular upon the terrestrial surface.Galileo Galilei Circular Sayings By Galileo Galilei: We see only the simple motion of descent, since that other circular one common to
A man is deficient in understanding until he perceives that there is a whole cycle of evolution possible within himself: repeating endlessly, offering opportunities for personal development.Idries Shah Circular Sayings By Idries Shah: A man is deficient in understanding until he perceives that there is a whole cycle
Fear fed on ignorance, just as ignorance fed on fear. The great truths were always circular.Michaelbrent Collings Circular Sayings By Michaelbrent Collings: Fear fed on ignorance, just as ignorance fed on fear. The great truths were always
Firms produce goods for households - that's us - and provide us with incomes, and that's even better, because we can spend those incomes on more goods and services. That's called the circular flow of the economy.Tim Jackson Circular Sayings By Tim Jackson: Firms produce goods for households - that's us - and provide us with incomes, and
A "portal" is an opening (door, window, or opening). A heavenly portal or a glory portal is a heavenly opening through which God's goodness manifests. I have seen a portal in a vision and it was a circular opening where a column of light poured down into the earth. There were angels ascending and descending.Patricia King Circular Sayings By Patricia King: A "portal" is an opening (door, window, or opening). A heavenly portal or a glory
On the banks of the Euphrates find a secret garden cunningly walled. There is an entrance, but the entrance is guarded. There is no way in for you. Inside you will find every plant that grows growing circular-wise like a target. Close to the heart is a sundial and at the heart an orange tree. This fruit has tripped up athletes while others have healed their wounds. All true quests end in this garden, where the split fruit pours forth blood and the halved fruit is a full bowl for travelers and pilgrims. To eat of the fruits means to leave the garden because the fruit speaks of other things, other longings. So at dusk you leave the place you love, not knowing if you can ever return, knowing you can never return by the same way as this. It may be, some other day, that you will open the gate by chance, and find yourself again on the other side of the wall.Jeanette Winterson Circular Sayings By Jeanette Winterson: On the banks of the Euphrates find a secret garden cunningly walled. There is an
I shall now recall to mind that the motion of the heavenly bodies is circular, since the motion appropriate to a sphere is rotation in a circle.Nicolaus Copernicus Circular Sayings By Nicolaus Copernicus: I shall now recall to mind that the motion of the heavenly bodies is circular,
But I just don't think it's an abyss of nothingness [after death] and that we fall off and that our journey stops. I think it's circular and we go and we go and we go. I know that there are civilizations that I think are way more sophisticated than we are and I think more sophisticated civilizations lived before us.Halle Berry Circular Sayings By Halle Berry: But I just don't think it's an abyss of nothingness [after death] and that we
Debate is angular, conversation circular and radiant of the underlying unity.Amos Bronson Alcott Circular Sayings By Amos Bronson Alcott: Debate is angular, conversation circular and radiant of the underlying unity.
I see the experience of pictures as a kind of cycle, a kind of circular motion in which you're in the world, then you enter the picture and you're in a different world (it's not the same as the one you live in, but recognizable as one you might live in). And then you're returned to your world with an enlarged sense of its possibilities.Frank Gohlke Circular Sayings By Frank Gohlke: I see the experience of pictures as a kind of cycle, a kind of circular
And she looked upon the mirror that was given as a gift. She hated everything about it, from the circular size of it, to the color, and the wooden frame that held it in place. But mostly, she hated looking at herself. Especially into this one that had a scratch on its glass surface, which would reflect back to her face. And as she looked, it would cut her as the words her father would often say, in telling her she was ugly.Anthony Liccione Circular Sayings By Anthony Liccione: And she looked upon the mirror that was given as a gift. She hated everything
If I have found my journey to be a maddening tangle of wandering 'rabbit-trails,' a labyrinth of incessantly circular passages to nowhere and back, and a plethora of assorted 'dead-ends' fraudulently disguised as paths of great promise, it can only be because I have mindlessly exchanged God's compass for mine. Therefore, it would appear that another exchange might be in order.Craig D. Lounsbrough Circular Sayings By Craig D. Lounsbrough: If I have found my journey to be a maddening tangle of wandering 'rabbit-trails,' a
The search for pleasure is circular, repetitive, atemporal. The variety seeking of the spectator, the thrill hunter, the sexually promiscuous, always ends in the same place. It has an end. It comes to the end and has to start over. It is not a journey and return, but a closed cycle, a locked room, a cell.Ursula K. Le Guin Circular Sayings By Ursula K. Le Guin: The search for pleasure is circular, repetitive, atemporal. The variety seeking of the spectator, the
My love is pizza shaped. Won't you have a slice? It's circular, so there's enough to go around.Dora J. Arod Circular Sayings By Dora J. Arod: My love is pizza shaped. Won't you have a slice? It's circular, so there's enough
The more we express thanks, the more gratitude we feel. The more gratitude we feel, the more we express thanks. It's circular, and it leads to a happier life.Steve Goodier Circular Sayings By Steve Goodier: The more we express thanks, the more gratitude we feel. The more gratitude we feel,
How often feelings are circular. How embarrassing to be embarrassed. How annoying to be annoyed.James Richardson Circular Sayings By James Richardson: How often feelings are circular. How embarrassing to be embarrassed. How annoying to be annoyed.
I've never been convinced that experience is linear, circular, or even random. It just is. I try to put it in some kind of order to extract meaning from it, to bring meaning to it.Toni Cade Bambara Circular Sayings By Toni Cade Bambara: I've never been convinced that experience is linear, circular, or even random. It just is.
The problem is that it has become politically awkward to draw attention to absolutes of bad and good. In place of manners, we now have doctrines of political correctness, against which one offends at one's peril: by means of a considerable circular logic, such offences mark you as reactionary and therefore a bad person. Therefore if you say people are bad, you are bad.Lynne Truss Circular Sayings By Lynne Truss: The problem is that it has become politically awkward to draw attention to absolutes of
It's kind of like some kind of church for me, playing live. Each show, good people from different pockets of the world come and open their soul and let their spirits mingle and dance. That energy comes up through me, and all I do is channel it; it's like a circular motion and very sacred.Xavier Rudd Circular Sayings By Xavier Rudd: It's kind of like some kind of church for me, playing live. Each show, good
He got up. It was too early to go to bed; at least, he was not in the mood for it. He pined for a bit of amusement - something cheap and easy. A seat in the pictures, cigarettes, beer. Useless! No money to pay for any of them. He would read KING LEAR and forget this filthy century. Finally, however, it was THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES that he took from the mantelpiece. SHERLOCK HOLMES was his favorite of all books, because he knew it by heart. The oil in the lamp was giving out and it was getting beastly cold. Gordon dragged the quilt from his bed, wrapped it round his legs and sat down to read. His right elbow on the table, his hands under his coat to keep them warm, he read through "The Adventure of the Speckled Band." The little gas-mantle sighed above, the circular flame of the oil-lamp burned low, a thin bracket of fire, giving out no more heat than a candle.George Orwell Circular Sayings By George Orwell: He got up. It was too early to go to bed; at least, he was
In the modern era, many thinkers began to mistrust faith, viewing it as 'blind' and an enemy of reason. Their watchword was 'reason alone.' One of the difficulties of this stance is that reason cannot test its own reliability, any more than soapstone can test its own hardness. Any argument, accomplished by reasoning, that what reasoning accomplishes can be trusted, would be circular, because it would take for granted the very thing that it was trying to prove.
Suppose I am at the window of a burning building. Although I can hear the firemen calling to me from far below, I cannot see them because of all the smoke. They are telling me to jump. Though I may have every reason to believe that they will catch me in their net, I may not trust them enough to overcome my fear, and so, hesitating, I burn to death. Obviously, my reasons are not the same as trust; faith surpasses reason. Even so they are reasons for trust; though faith surpasses reason, it is not irrational.
J. Budziszewski Circular Sayings By J. Budziszewski: In the modern era, many thinkers began to mistrust faith, viewing it as 'blind' and
I drag a finger over his chest and down his stomach, tracing the red, circular scar that, for three months of his life, was an opening that attached to a colostomy bag, an object that seemed to rob Marshall of his ability to be, well, Marshall - someone who lives for activity and vibrant levels of energy. He's got all that back now and is fully recovered.Julie Cross Circular Sayings By Julie Cross: I drag a finger over his chest and down his stomach, tracing the red, circular
One of the things that did intrigue me about when I read the pilot - because I had not read the books before doing the show - was the mystery aspect of it. I didn't feel that it was just a crime-based story. It really does have that mystery element, and it felt like a throwback to other shows in the past that had a bit more of that. There was something iconic about it. The fact that it's set in Boston gave it a feeling that was different to me. So, I am definitely more of a fan of mysteries than I am of a circular crime-based genre.Sasha Alexander Circular Sayings By Sasha Alexander: One of the things that did intrigue me about when I read the pilot -
If our primary caregivers are shame-based, they will act shameless and pass their toxic shame onto us. There is no way to teach self-value if one does not value oneself. Toxic shame is multigenerational. It is passed from one generation to the next. Shame-based people find other shame-based people and get married. As each member of a couple carries the shame from his or her own family system, their marriage will be grounded in their shame-core. The major outcome of this will be a lack of intimacy. It's difficult to let someone get close to you if you feel defective and flawed as a human being. Shame-based couples maintain nonintimacy through poor communication, nonproductive circular fighting, games, manipulation, vying for control, withdrawal, blaming and confluence. Confluence is the agreement never to disagree. Confluence creates pseudointimacy.John Bradshaw Circular Sayings By John Bradshaw: If our primary caregivers are shame-based, they will act shameless and pass their toxic shame
You never do anything without a reason." "Of course not. Why do anything without a reason?" "Don't start up with your circular logic.Richelle Mead Circular Sayings By Richelle Mead: You never do anything without a reason." "Of course not. Why do anything without a
The world that is a book is devoured bya reader who is a letter in the world's text; thus a circular metaphor is created for the endlessness of reading; We are what we read.Alberto Manguel Circular Sayings By Alberto Manguel: The world that is a book is devoured bya reader who is a letter in
If one doubts whether Grecian valor and patriotism are not a fiction of the poets, he may go to Athens and see still upon the walls of the temple of Minerva the circular marks made by the shields taken from the enemy in the Persian war, which were suspended there. We have not far to seek for living and unquestionable evidence. The very dust takes shape and confirms some story which we had read.Henry David Thoreau Circular Sayings By Henry David Thoreau: If one doubts whether Grecian valor and patriotism are not a fiction of the poets,
Thoughts are circular, they don't take you anywhere. They don't have feet-they can't gain any ground. They can trap you if you don't eventually stand up and make a move.Katie Kacvinsky Circular Sayings By Katie Kacvinsky: Thoughts are circular, they don't take you anywhere. They don't have feet-they can't gain any
Each new generation is reared by its predecessor; the latter must therefore improve in order to improve its successor. The movement is circular.Emile Durkheim Circular Sayings By Emile Durkheim: Each new generation is reared by its predecessor; the latter must therefore improve in order
Before the beginning of the world, the triune God existed as Father, Son, and Spirit -- existing as three persons, yet one essence. Before there was an earth, before there was a cosmos, before there was anything, there was the triune God existing in this circular relationship between each person of the Godhead. He is perfectly happy, perfectly content, and perfectly together. When God creates, what is the purpose of creation? What is the purpose of making people? Why is God speaking with them and walking in the garden with them? He is increasing the circle. This is how God made the world; he enlarged the circle. Adam and Eve were in paradise because they were in the circle of God's love.Zach Weihrauch Circular Sayings By Zach Weihrauch: Before the beginning of the world, the triune God existed as Father, Son, and Spirit
Atheism, I began to realize, rested on a less-than-satisfactory evidential basis. The arguments that had once seemed bold, decisive, and conclusive increasingly turned out to be circular, tentative, and uncertain.Alister E. McGrath Circular Sayings By Alister E. McGrath: Atheism, I began to realize, rested on a less-than-satisfactory evidential basis. The arguments that had
Every book is, in an intimate sense, a circular-letter to the friends of him who writes it.Robert Louis Stevenson Circular Sayings By Robert Louis Stevenson: Every book is, in an intimate sense, a circular-letter to the friends of him who
You know, Jean's slapped me out of a lot of moods like the one you're in right now." Locke took a long pull on his beer. "You're taking the world awfully personally. Didn't Chains ever tell you about the Golden Theological Principle?" "The what?" "The single congruent aspect of every known religion. The one shared, universal assumption about the human condition." "What is it?" "He said that life boils down to standing in line to get shit dropped on your head. Everyone's got a place in the queue, you can't get out of it, and just when you start to congratulate yourself on surviving your dose of shit, you discover that the line is actually circular." "I'm just old enough to find that distressingly accurate.Scott Lynch Circular Sayings By Scott Lynch: You know, Jean's slapped me out of a lot of moods like the one you're
Instead, my heart was pounding like crazy as the driver pulled into the long circular drive that would bring me to the front of the Rosewood Academy for Academic Excellence - my new home for the next ten months. The windows of the car were tinted, so no one could see in, but as I was in one of several limos (mixed in with Range Rovers, Audis, Mercedes' and other cars of the famous and wealthy), no one really paid attention. And,Katrina Abbott Circular Sayings By Katrina Abbott: Instead, my heart was pounding like crazy as the driver pulled into the long circular
Much like trains in India, grief is a circular, irrational process with no discernible rhythm or timetable. Here it comes, there it goes.Suzanne Finnamore Circular Sayings By Suzanne Finnamore: Much like trains in India, grief is a circular, irrational process with no discernible rhythm
Between going and staying the day wavers,
in love with its own transparency.
The circular afternoon is now a bay
where the world in stillness rocks.
All is visible and all elusive,
all is near and can't be touched.
Paper, book, pencil, glass,
rest in the shade of their names.
Time throbbing in my temples repeats
the same unchanging syllable of blood.
The light turns the indifferent wall
into a ghostly theater of reflections.
I find myself in the middle of an eye,
watching myself in its blank stare.
The moment scatters. Motionless,
I stay and go: I am a pause.
Octavio Paz Circular Sayings By Octavio Paz: Between going and staying the day wavers,in love with its own transparency.The circular afternoon is
Hello. It is Monday. I live in Sun City. Sun City is a city that is entirely contained inside an enormous concrete building in the shape of a sun. Its rays house our living quarters; its circular centre is where we work and shop. No one has ever been outside of the city; it is generally suspected that the environment outside of the city is uninhabitable.Mike Russell Circular Sayings By Mike Russell: Hello. It is Monday. I live in Sun City. Sun City is a city that
The Mexicans relate that, shortly before our arrival in New Spain, there appeared a figure in the heavens of a circular form, like a carriage wheel, the colours of which were a mixture of green and red. Shortly after a second, of a similar form, made its appearance, which moved towards the rising of the sun, and joined the first.Bernal Diaz Del Castillo Circular Sayings By Bernal Diaz Del Castillo: The Mexicans relate that, shortly before our arrival in New Spain, there appeared a figure
The entire point of life was the ability to make one's own choices. Foreknowledge of anything - especially the circular kind, such as Kashkari's presence at Eton because he'd dreamed of it - was terribly limiting and ran counter to the concept of free will.Sherry Thomas Circular Sayings By Sherry Thomas: The entire point of life was the ability to make one's own choices. Foreknowledge of
(knitting while on a motorcycle)
For several years she knitted in secret (my father would not approve; she was to concentrate on motorcycling and LEAN into the curves, etc), and used a small circular needle (socks and mittens) in order to keep the knitting in her pocket until they were under way; then she leaned back slightly so Gaffer couldn't feel the movement of her hands.
On the interstate one day, they were slowly passing a semi and my father happened to see the truck driver laugh and point out my mother's knitting to his passenger. Whoops-
Elizabeth Zimmermann Circular Sayings By Elizabeth Zimmermann: (knitting while on a motorcycle)For several years she knitted in secret (my father would not
All true definitions of art are circular, and all untrue definitions of art ascribe to it a specific function. AJulian Barnes Circular Sayings By Julian Barnes: All true definitions of art are circular, and all untrue definitions of art ascribe to
I wouldn't like to live in a castle now, but I'd enjoy a visit to Restormel in Cornwall in its 13th century prime. It's a circular castle with the rooms built against the outer walls and quite intimate in size. Life there wouldn't follow the pattern of more classic castle design.Jo Beverley Circular Sayings By Jo Beverley: I wouldn't like to live in a castle now, but I'd enjoy a visit to
O sun, heart of the heavens whose blood of light
Infuses the vigor which transmutes to azure
The black ice strangler of great space obscure
I hate you, mask of gold, mist and fire, circular
Blind monster blinding all the prey around
You who veil the impure dazzling phantasm
To the loving vertigo of my avid gazes
The visions of the colorless abyss of the void
Reversed hollow truth-mask of the other world.
Roger Gilbert-Lecomte Circular Sayings By Roger Gilbert-Lecomte: O sun, heart of the heavens whose blood of lightInfuses the vigor which transmutes to
A circular plot structure, often seen in adventure novels and quest fantasies, is a narrative devise involving setting, character, and theme. Typically a protagonist ventures from home (or the starting place of the story), goes on a journey, often a dangerous one in which many challenges are overcome, and then returns home a changed person. The plot is usually chronological, with the events occurring in a setting that becomes a circle. By returning the character to the place where he started, the author can emphasize the character's growth or change while also highlighting the theme of the story.Carl M. Tomlinson Circular Sayings By Carl M. Tomlinson: A circular plot structure, often seen in adventure novels and quest fantasies, is a narrative
Hell goes round and round. In shape it is circular, and by nature it is interminable, repetitive, and nearly unbearable.Flann O'Brien Circular Sayings By Flann O'Brien: Hell goes round and round. In shape it is circular, and by nature it is
Don't be stupid and awkward," the dolphin says. "You want to walk together or not?"
"You are a stupid piece of shit. Go away from me."
The dolphin goes into the center of a circular clothing rack and quietly cries.

Stories as written are progressive, sentence must build upon sentence as brick upon brick, yet the beauty of this life in its endless mystery is circular. Sun & moon, spheres endlessly circling. Black man, full circle; white man, bisected circle; life, the third circle, on & on, & round & round.Richard Flanagan Circular Sayings By Richard Flanagan: Stories as written are progressive, sentence must build upon sentence as brick upon brick, yet
To think that the affairs of this life always remain in the same state is a vain presumption; indeed they all seem to be perpetually changing and moving in a circular course. Spring is followed by summer, summer by autumn, and autumn by winter, which is again followed by spring, and so time continues its everlasting round. But the life of man is ever racing to its end, swifter than time itself, without hope of renewal, unless in the next that is limitless and infinite.Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra Circular Sayings By Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra: To think that the affairs of this life always remain in the same state is
So spake the Enemie of Mankind, enclos'd In Serpent, Inmate bad, and toward EVE Address'd his way, not with indented wave, Prone on the ground, as since, but on his reare, Circular base of rising foulds, that tour'd Fould above fould a surging Maze, his Head Crested aloft, and Carbuncle his Eyes; With burnisht Neck of verdant Gold, erect Amidst his circling Spires, that on the grass Floted redundant: pleasing was his shape, And lovely, never since of Serpent kind Lovelier, not those that in ILLYRIA chang'd HERMIONE and CADMUS, or the God In EPIDAURUS; norJohn Milton Circular Sayings By John Milton: So spake the Enemie of Mankind, enclos'd In Serpent, Inmate bad, and toward EVE Address'd
Self-knowledge reveals to the soul that its natural motion is not, if uninterrupted, in a straight line, but circular, as around some inner object, about a center, the point to which it owes its origin.Plotinus Circular Sayings By Plotinus: Self-knowledge reveals to the soul that its natural motion is not, if uninterrupted, in a
After that I went to Sydney and talked profitlessly with seamen and members of the vice-admiralty court. I saw the Alert, now sold and in commercial use, at Circular Quay in Sydney Cove, but gained nothing from its non-committal bulk. The crouching image with its cuttlefish head, dragon body, scaly wings, and hieroglyphed pedestal, was preserved in the Museum at Hyde Park; and I studied it long and well, finding it a thing of balefully exquisite workmanship, and with the same utter mystery, terrible antiquity, and unearthly strangeness of material which I had noted in Legrasse's smaller specimen. Geologists,H.P. Lovecraft Circular Sayings By H.P. Lovecraft: After that I went to Sydney and talked profitlessly with seamen and members of the
The night in prison was novel and interesting enough ... I found that even here there was a history and a gossip which never circulated beyond the walls of the jail. Probably this is the only house in the town where verses are composed, which are afterward printed in a circular form, but not published. I was shown quite a long list of verses which were composed by some young men who had been detected in an attempt to escape, who avenged themselves by singing them.Henry David Thoreau Circular Sayings By Henry David Thoreau: The night in prison was novel and interesting enough ... I found that even here
I believe that a triangle, if it could speak, would say that God is eminently triangular, and a circle that the divine nature is eminently circular; and thus would every one ascribe his own attributes to God.Baruch Spinoza Circular Sayings By Baruch Spinoza: I believe that a triangle, if it could speak, would say that God is eminently
A particularly significant example of brain against body, or measures against matter, is urban man's total slavery to clocks. A clock is a convenient device for arranging to meet a friend, or for helping people to do things together, although things of this kind happened long before they were invented. Clocks should not be smashed; they should simply be kept in their place. And they are very much out of place when we try to adapt our biological rhythms of eating, sleeping, evacuation, working, and relaxing to their uniform circular rotation. Our slavery to these mechanical drill masters has gone so far and our whole culture is so involved with it that reform is a forlorn hope; without them civilization would collapse entirely. A less brainy culture would learn to synchronize its body rhythms rather than its clocks.Alan W. Watts Circular Sayings By Alan W. Watts: A particularly significant example of brain against body, or measures against matter, is urban man's
It's quite complicated and sounds circular, but we've worked out a way of calculate a Web site's importance.Larry Page Circular Sayings By Larry Page: It's quite complicated and sounds circular, but we've worked out a way of calculate a
When the idea came up, (Newman's Own) I said, "Are you crazy? Stick my face on the label of salad dressing?" And then, of course, we got the whole idea of exploitation and how circular it is. Why not, really, go to the fullest length, and the silliest length, in exploiting yourself and turn the proceeds back to the community?Paul Newman Circular Sayings By Paul Newman: When the idea came up, (Newman's Own) I said, "Are you crazy? Stick my face

Seth and Jenny after they've escaped Alexander in Mexico.
Seth: "Here's what we need to do. Find a flat area, like a farm, a little bit out of the way where we can spend a little time." Seth unbuttoned his black fatigues.
Jenny: "Seth, I think we have more urgent things to think about ... "
Seth: "I know." He pushed his pants down to his knees. "I want to show you something.
Jenny: "I've seen it before."
Seth: "Ha ha." Seth tugged back the leg of his boxer shorts to reveal a black band around one thigh with a circular device mounted on it.
J.L. Bryan Circular Sayings By J.L. Bryan: Seth and Jenny after they've escaped Alexander in Mexico. Seth: "Here's what we need to
Like all the other arrivals to the tournament, Hank had erected a banner in front. It was a long, tapering pennant with a blue and red circular design in the center and the words GO CUBS! on both sides.
Interesting," said Hugo. "What does it mean?"
It was a gift from Sam," Hank explained as they entered the tent. "He said it used to represent Triumph over Adversity, but now better represents Impossible Quests and Lost Causes."
I think I preferred not knowing that," said Hugo.
Hank grinned. "You're a Sox fan too, hey?
James A. Owen Circular Sayings By James A. Owen: Like all the other arrivals to the tournament, Hank had erected a banner in front.
But Tik Tok believes everything's circular, including men and women. He says nature seems to go around and around, and that we all have bits of everything.Jodi Lynn Anderson Circular Sayings By Jodi Lynn Anderson: But Tik Tok believes everything's circular, including men and women. He says nature seems to
It was a clear, impenetrable hole in the ship: a circular viewport into an alien terrarium where, out past the ghostly reflection of his own face, strange hyperbaric creatures built monstrous artifacts out of sand and coral. Their eyes twinkled like green stars in the gloom.Peter Watts Circular Sayings By Peter Watts: It was a clear, impenetrable hole in the ship: a circular viewport into an alien

It has been my experience that most human stories are circular rather than linear. Regardless of the path we choose, we somehow end up where we commenced - in part, I suspect, because the child who lives in us goes along for the ride.James Lee Burke Circular Sayings By James Lee Burke: It has been my experience that most human stories are circular rather than linear. Regardless
I have a personality that tends to be somewhat compulsive, and I do tend to think in a circular way.

One lone bubble floated toward her. In its curves, she saw the reflection of every color around her, a circular prism. She was that bubble. Tossed by the win in every direction. Reflecting all the people around her, all the things happening to her. All but herself.Jessica Shook Circular Sayings By Jessica Shook: One lone bubble floated toward her. In its curves, she saw the reflection of every
It seemed a ruse that fear of death should be the sole motivation for living and, yet, to quell this fear made the prospect of living itself seem all the more absurd; to extend this further, the notion of living one's life for the purposes of pondering the absurdity of living was an even greater absurdity in and of itself, which thus, by reductio ad absurdum, rendered the fear of death a necessary function of life and any lack thereof, a trifling matter rooted in self-inflicted incoherence.Ashim Shanker Circular Sayings By Ashim Shanker: It seemed a ruse that fear of death should be the sole motivation for living
Pain comes to us from deep back, from where it grew in the human body. Pain sucks more pain into it, we don't know why. It lives, and we harbor its weight. When the worst comes, we will not act the opposite. We will do what we were taught, we who learnt our lessons in the dead light. We pass them on. We hurt, and hurt others, in a circular motion.Louise Erdrich Circular Sayings By Louise Erdrich: Pain comes to us from deep back, from where it grew in the human body.
My name,' said the mattress, 'is Zem. We could discuss the weather a little.' Marvin paused again in his weary circular pplod. 'The dew,' he observed, 'has clearly fallen with a particularly sickening thud this morning.' He resumed his walk, as if inspired by this conversational outburst to fresh heights of gloom and despondency. He plodded tenaciously. If he had had teeth he would have gritted them at this point. He hadn't. He didn't. The mere plod said it all. The mattress flolloped around.Douglas Adams Circular Sayings By Douglas Adams: My name,' said the mattress, 'is Zem. We could discuss the weather a little.' Marvin

The lyric abstrusities of Auden ring mystically down the circular canals of my ear and it begins to look like snow. The good gray conservative obliterating snow. Smoothing (in one white lacy euphemism after another) out all the black bleak angular unangelic nauseous ugliness of the blasted sterile world: dry buds, shrunken stone houses, dead vertical moving people all all all go under the great white beguiling wave. And come out transformed. Lose yourself in a numb dumb snow-daubed lattice of crystal and come out pure with the white virginal veneer you never had.Sylvia Plath Circular Sayings By Sylvia Plath: The lyric abstrusities of Auden ring mystically down the circular canals of my ear and
Even souvenir seekers. One of the worst contaminants was fellow officers, especially brass grandstanding if reporters were present and eager to grab a video bite to slap on the twenty-four-hour news cycle. One more glance at the circular coffin. Okay, Amelia Sachs thought: Knuckle time ... A phrase of her father's. The man had also been cop, a beat patrolman working the Deuce - Midtown South; back then Times Square was like Deadwood in the 1800s. "Knuckle time" referred to those moments when you have to go up against your worst fears. Breadbasket ... Sachs returned to the access door and climbed through it and down into the utility room below the cellar. Then she took the evidence collection gear bag from the other officer. Sachs said, "You search the basement, Jean?" "I'll do it now," Eagleston said. "And then get everything into the RRV." They'd done a fast examination of the cellar. But it was apparent that the perp had spent minimal time there. He'd grabbed Chloe, subduedJeffery Deaver Circular Sayings By Jeffery Deaver: Even souvenir seekers.

I have no interest in anything so frivolous as the bona fide religion or mankind's pathetic debate over whose version of the church is correct.

It worries me I may tell you. I sit at home every night thinking about it and smoking endless cigarettes. If you call at my place any night after seven I will show you one of them. Quite circular.

There is no one who does not feel that he is imprisoned in some way. If this is the result of his own free will he must regard his will as not free, or the circular reasoning in this position would be quite apparent. Free will must lead to freedom.Foundation For Inner Peace Circular Sayings By Foundation For Inner Peace: There is no one who does not feel that he is imprisoned in some way.

It appears, according to the reported facts, that the electric conflict is not restricted to the conducting wire, but that it has a rather extended sphere of activity around it .. the nature of the circular action is such that movements that it produces take place in directions precisely contrary to the two extremities of a given diameter. Furthermore, it seems that the circular movement, combined with the progressive movement in the direction of the length of the conjunctive wire, should form a mode of action which is exerted as a helix around this wire as an axis.Hans Christian Orsted Circular Sayings By Hans Christian Orsted: It appears, according to the reported facts, that the electric conflict is not restricted to

The word 'Dorf' lies, although the Dablem Dorf station is covered with straw. Arabian students hang out in front of the entrance to the underground, and only the German kiosk of the kabob seller clues us in that the bus did not arrive through a secret passage and set us down in Morocco. The University buildings are hidden among trees, intertwining paths and signposts, which exclude each other. The arrow points to another arrow 3 m away, which is pointing back, perpendicular to the first. With signs making sure no one can get lost during his search, he searches and searches and it seems entirely irrelevant that he can never find the place he is searching for by tracing the signs. A Mobius strip, the circular blindness of the streets, and exhausted Minotaur are harbingers of the paths of this place, which only multiply behind the revolving door of the Ethnological Museum.Ales Steger Circular Sayings By Ales Steger: The word 'Dorf' lies, although the Dablem Dorf station is covered with straw.

The problem with having currency is that any society that controls it eventually debases it and taxes it. Any society that doesn't control it will still have it evolve, and then the currency becomes pegged to outside influences - like the scarcity of precious metals, colored seashells, or large circular rocks with holes in the middle.L.E. Modesitt Jr. Circular Sayings By L.E. Modesitt Jr.: The problem with having currency is that any society that controls it eventually debases it

It is a different sensation than watching the stars while lying in a field, something Bailey has done many times. There are no trees creeping into the edges, and the gentle swaying of the carriage makes him feel almost weightless. And it is incredibly quiet. As the carriage moves along in what seems to be a circular pattern, Bailey can hear nothing but a soft creak and the sound of Poppet breathing next to him. It is as though the entire circus has faded away into the darkness. He glances over at Poppet, who is looking at him instead of the sky. She gives him a grin and then turns away. Bailey wonders if he should ask if she sees anything in the stars.Erin Morgenstern Circular Sayings By Erin Morgenstern: It is a different sensation than watching the stars while lying in a field, something
The best artifact was the calendar of the ancients, a great carved piece of stone as big as a kitchen, circular, bolted to the wall like a giant clock. In the center was an angry face looking out, as if he'd come through that stone from some other place to have a look at us, and not very pleased about it.Barbara Kingsolver Circular Sayings By Barbara Kingsolver: The best artifact was the calendar of the ancients, a great carved piece of stone

He, the stranger, was speaking to her brother Jesse. The sun was at his back and it shone around him like a golden halo. Even from the distance she could see that he was handsome in a curious way. He was finely dressed and worthily shod. Real pince-nez spectacles of circular glass were perched upon his nose. And his trim form and deignful expression gave him a princely air.
Meggie's eyes widened. Her heart beat faster and the blood sped through her veins.
A prince. Her prince.
