The supreme good is like water, which nourishes all things without trying to. It is content with the low places that people disdain. Thus it is like the Tao. In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don't try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present. When you are content to be simply yourself and don't compare or compete, everybody will respect you.Lao-Tzu Completely Content Sayings By Lao-Tzu: The supreme good is like water, which nourishes all things without trying to. It is
I was influenced by the Beats because I actually just began to commit adolescence around 1955, when "Howl" and Rebel Without a Cause and a lot of other new things were popping up. (Again I'm trying to give you a finite version of this career.) And then I came under the sway of Wallace Stevens when I was in college and graduate school, and basically set as a life goal the ambition of writing third-rate Wallace Stevens. I thought I would be completely content if I was recognized at some later point in my life as a third-rate Wallace Stevens.Billy Collins Completely Content Sayings By Billy Collins: I was influenced by the Beats because I actually just began to commit adolescence around
Alas! we know that ideals can never be completely embodied in practice. Ideals must ever lie a great way off
and we will thankfully content ourselves with any not intolerable approximation thereto! Let no man, as Schiller says, too querulously "measure by a scale of perfection the meager product of reality" in this poor world of ours.
Thomas Carlyle Completely Content Sayings By Thomas Carlyle: Alas! we know that ideals can never be completely embodied in practice. Ideals must ever
So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It's your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.Eugene H. Peterson Completely Content Sayings By Eugene H. Peterson: So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God
For, as the German diplomat and philosopher Max Scheler wrote, "He who has not, as it were, looked into the abyss of the absolute Nothing will completely overlook the eminently positive content of the realization that there is something rather than nothing." Let us, then, dip briefly into that abyss, with full assurance that we will not come up empty-handed. For, as the old saying goes: Nothing seek, nothing find.Jim Holt Completely Content Sayings By Jim Holt: For, as the German diplomat and philosopher Max Scheler wrote, "He who has not, as
If Watson and I had not discovered the [DNA] structure, instead of being revealed with a flourish it would have trickled out and that its impact would have been far less. For this sort of reason Stent had argued that a scientific discovery is more akin to a work of art than is generally admitted. Style, he argues, is as important as content. I am not completely convinced by this argument, at least in this case.Francis Crick Completely Content Sayings By Francis Crick: If Watson and I had not discovered the [DNA] structure, instead of being revealed with
Life is so impermanent that it's not about somebody else or things around me, it's about knowing you are completely alone in this world and being content inside.K.d. Lang Completely Content Sayings By K.d. Lang: Life is so impermanent that it's not about somebody else or things around me, it's
Without total freedom, every perception, every objective regard, is twisted. It is only the man who is totally free who can look and understand immediately. Freedom implies really, doesn't it, the total emptying of the mind. Completely to empty the whole content of the mind-that is real freedom. Freedom is not mere revolt from circumstances, which again breeds other circumstances, other environmental influences, which enslave the mind. We are talking about a freedom that comes naturally, easily, unasked for, when the mind is capable of functioning at its highest level.Jiddu Krishnamurti Completely Content Sayings By Jiddu Krishnamurti: Without total freedom, every perception, every objective regard, is twisted. It is only the man
You should wait until the book is finished before making a judgment on its content. By the time you have gone through twenty drafts, the characters may have developed lives of their own, completely separate from the people you based them on in the beginning. And even if someone, at some time, gets upset with your words - so what? Live your life, sing your song. Anyone who loves you will want you to have that.Walter Mosley Completely Content Sayings By Walter Mosley: You should wait until the book is finished before making a judgment on its content.
I have only to go stubbornly on towards my aim, and I shall attain my end", thought Levin; "and it's something to work and take trouble for. This is not a matter of myself individually; the question of the public welfare comes into it. The whole system of culture, the chief element in the condition of people, must be completely transformed. Instead of poverty, general prosperity and content; instead of hostility, harmony and unity of interests. In short, a bloodless revolution, but a revolution of the greatest magnitude, beginning in the little circle of our district, then the province, then Russia, then the whole world. Because a just idea cannot but be fruitful. Yes, it's an aim worth working for.Leo Tolstoy Completely Content Sayings By Leo Tolstoy: I have only to go stubbornly on towards my aim, and I shall attain my
I would like you to understand completely, also emotionally, that I'm a political detainee and will be a political prisoner, that I have nothing now or in the future to be ashamed of in this situation. That, at bottom, I myself have in a certain sense asked for this detention and this sentence, because I've always refused to change my opinion, for which I would be willing to give my life and not just remain in prison. That therefore I can only be tranquil and content with myself.Antonio Gramsci Completely Content Sayings By Antonio Gramsci: I would like you to understand completely, also emotionally, that I'm a political detainee and
Video is growing very quickly on Facebook. A lot of people compare that to YouTube. I think that kind of makes sense. YouTube isn't the only video service, but I think it's the biggest, and it probably makes more sense to compare Facebook video to YouTube rather than Netflix because that's a completely different kind of content.Mark Zuckerberg Completely Content Sayings By Mark Zuckerberg: Video is growing very quickly on Facebook. A lot of people compare that to YouTube.
Hold on to the great image, and the whole world follows, follows unharmed, content and completely at peace.Laozi Completely Content Sayings By Laozi: Hold on to the great image, and the whole world follows, follows unharmed, content and
I never knew you could spend hours just kissing a girl. I never knew because I'd never done it before. In the last month, I'd learned just how erotic kissing could be. Many nights I'd left her place unsatisfied sexually, but completely content emotionally.
I sound like a fucking chick. I want to go drink a beer and punch something.
That's better.
J. Sterling Completely Content Sayings By J. Sterling: I never knew you could spend hours just kissing a girl. I never knew because
As a man is taught, so he believes. Thoughts being things, they may be planted like seeds in the mind of the child and completely dominate his mental content. Given the favourable soil of the will to believe, whether the seed-thoughts be sound or unsound, whether they be of pure superstition or of realizable truth, they take root and flourish, and make the man what he is mentally.W.Y. Evans-Wentz Completely Content Sayings By W.Y. Evans-Wentz: As a man is taught, so he believes. Thoughts being things, they may be planted
My high-school dream was to be in a band, pay my rent and eat - and I've been able to do that for 20 years. So I'm completely content.Evan Dando Completely Content Sayings By Evan Dando: My high-school dream was to be in a band, pay my rent and eat -
[Religion is] a fantasy [and is] completely empty of any explanatory content. It is also evil.Peter Atkins Completely Content Sayings By Peter Atkins: [Religion is] a fantasy [and is] completely empty of any explanatory content. It is also
I think my capacity to change has given me tremendous happiness, because who I am today I am completely content to be.Jamie Lee Curtis Completely Content Sayings By Jamie Lee Curtis: I think my capacity to change has given me tremendous happiness, because who I am
Sometimes I feel that in religious content, religious drama, it's almost told like a tale, like an account of facts, and in 'A.D. The Bible Continues,' it's drama, it's real drama that we like to see on TV today, seeing the characters struggle and doubt and be completely in conflict with each other, kind of like 'House of Cards.'Juan Pablo Di Pace Completely Content Sayings By Juan Pablo Di Pace: Sometimes I feel that in religious content, religious drama, it's almost told like a tale,
I had read it some time ago but was so completely immersed that I retained nothing. This has been an intermittent, lifelong enigma. Through early adolescence I sat and read for hours in a small grove of weed trees near the railroad track in Germantown. Like Gumby I would enter a book wholeheartedly and sometimes venture so deeply it was as if I were living within it. I finished many books in such a manner there, closing the covers ecstatically yet having no memory of the content by the time I returned home. This disturbed me but I kept this strange affliction to myself. I look at the covers of such books and their contents remain a mystery that I cannot bring myself to solve. Certain books I loved and lived within yet cannot remember.Patti Smith Completely Content Sayings By Patti Smith: I had read it some time ago but was so completely immersed that I retained
Loving Sarah was like reading a particularly good book. That pressing and overwhelming need to just devour it as fast as possible is matched only by the need to savour it slowly and completely, lest all come to an end too soon. The all-consuming emotions are so many and varied that it is almost impossible to pick out one for a few minutes attention. They mainly stay jumbled and unattended, and for the most part not entirely understood or satisfied. But then, maybe it is in the understanding of our love for someone that the love itself disappears altogether. If so, then I don't want to understand, and I remain content to simply experience her. Somehow, the more I learn about Sarah, the better I understand myself.
And the more I fall in love.
Nadine Rose Larter Completely Content Sayings By Nadine Rose Larter: Loving Sarah was like reading a particularly good book. That pressing and overwhelming need to
When Sterling's eyesight did finally fail him completely, we were
up in years, content to sit in our garden and reflect on what a
wondrous and exciting life we'd led. He did not see my hair fade into
silver. For him it was always a vibrant red. I watched him age
gracefully and with dignity. He leaned on me much more than he
did his walking stick, which was how it should be, because when I
needed him most, he was always there for me. Each day I thought I
could love him no more than I already did - and the following
morning I was always proven wrong, for I awoke loving him just a
little bit more.
Lorraine Heath Completely Content Sayings By Lorraine Heath: When Sterling's eyesight did finally fail him completely, we wereup in years, content to sit
When we really start to take a look at who we think we are ... we start to see that while we may have various thoughts, beliefs, and identities, they do not individually or collectively tell us who we are. [And yet] it is astounding how completely we humans define ourselves by the content of our minds, feelings, and history.Adyashanti Completely Content Sayings By Adyashanti: When we really start to take a look at who we think we are ...
When we show you all these various pieces of content on the site, how frequently do you take the one that we present? And of the one you took, how frequently do you completely watch the whole series? And do you rate it, one to five stars? So if we presented it to you, and you watched it, and you rated it, that's a big win.Ted Sarandos Completely Content Sayings By Ted Sarandos: When we show you all these various pieces of content on the site, how frequently
She rarely lets me off the hook, holding me to a different standard of emotional intelligence than the other men in her life - even my Brothers. She allows them to behave like Gary, docilely going about their lives, content and happy and completely oblivious to the sticky, ugly things just a few inches below the surface of everything.Matthew Norman Completely Content Sayings By Matthew Norman: She rarely lets me off the hook, holding me to a different standard of emotional
Imagine craving absolutely nothing from the world. Imagine cutting the invisible strings that so painfully bind us: what would that be like? Imagine the freedoms that come from the ability to enjoy things without having to acquire them, own them, possess them. Try to envision a relationship based on acceptance and genuine care rather than expectation. Imagine feeling completely satisfied and content with your life just as it is. Who wouldn't want this? This is the enjoyment of non-attachment.Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche Completely Content Sayings By Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche: Imagine craving absolutely nothing from the world. Imagine cutting the invisible strings that so painfully
I want to keep improving, continue to help my teammates improve, make my teammates look good. Continue bringing something new to the game, never getting completely content and always trying to get better.Alex Morgan Completely Content Sayings By Alex Morgan: I want to keep improving, continue to help my teammates improve, make my teammates look
But for life's little defeats and indignities, I would be happy, content and completely average.Mark Rude Completely Content Sayings By Mark Rude: But for life's little defeats and indignities, I would be happy, content and completely average.
Once you change the technology - from a film camera to a video camera, or from an 8-mm camera to 16 mm - you change completely the content. With 8 mm, a leaf on a tree will be made up of maybe four grains. So it's very impressionistic, almost like Seurat. If you switch to 16 mm, the technology gives you hundreds of grains on that leaf.Jonas Mekas Completely Content Sayings By Jonas Mekas: Once you change the technology - from a film camera to a video camera, or
My stupidity gave its blessing to succouring nature, on her knees before God.
What I am (my drunken laughter and happiness) is nonetheless at stake, handed over to chance, thrown out into the night, chased away like a dog.
The wind of truth responded like a slap to piety's extended cheek.
The heart is human to the extent that it rebels (this means: to be a man is 'not to bow down before the law').
A poet doesn't justify - he doesn't accept - nature completely. True poetry is outside laws. But poetry ultimately accepts poetry.
When to accept poetry changes it into its opposite (it becomes the mediator of an acceptance!) I hold back the leap in which I would exceed the universe, I justify the given world, I content myself with it
Georges Bataille Completely Content Sayings By Georges Bataille: My stupidity gave its blessing to succouring nature, on her knees before God.What I am
In many ways ... the completeness of biography, the achievement of its professionalization, is an ironic fiction, since no life can ever be known completely, nor would we want to know every fact about an individual. Similarly, no life is ever lived according to aesthetic proportions. The "plot" of a biography is superficially based on the birth, life and death of the subject; "character," in the vision of the author. Both are as much creations of the biographer, as they are of a novelist. We content ourselves with "authorized fictions.Ira Bruce Nadel Completely Content Sayings By Ira Bruce Nadel: In many ways ... the completeness of biography, the achievement of its professionalization, is an
The tales of pure terror, of course, are completely naturalistic in their content, and must stand or fall by their merit alone. But what about the supernatural stories? Can we, the children of a scientific age, give any credence to these medleys of devils, ghosts, and other psychical invasions? There is only one answer: we can and do. We are dealing with stories, not with scientific dissertations. And if, as stories, they have the ring of truth, we'll believe them, as stories, implicitly.
("Introduction")

IGNORANCE

I didn't know love would make me this
crazy, with my eyes
like the river Ceyhun
carrying me in its rapids
out to sea,where every bit
of shattered boat
sinks to the bottom.

An alligator lifts its head and swallows
the ocean, then the ocean
floor becomes
a desert covering
the alligator in
sand drifts.

Changes do
happen. I do not know how,
or what remains of what
has disappeared
into the absolute.

I hear so many stories
and explanations, but I keep quiet,
because I don't know anything,
and because something I swallowed
in the ocean
has made me completely content
with ignorance.
Jalaluddin Rumi Completely Content Sayings By Jalaluddin Rumi: IGNORANCEI didn't know love would make me thiscrazy, with my eyeslike the river Ceyhuncarrying me
The realistic value of a work is completely independent of its properties in terms of content.Fernand Leger Completely Content Sayings By Fernand Leger: The realistic value of a work is completely independent of its properties in terms of
To stand alone is to be uncorrupted, innocent, free of all tradition, of dogma, of opinion, of what another says, and so on. Such a mind does not seek because there is nothing to seek; being free, such a mind is completely still without a want, without movement.
But this state is not to be achieved; it isn't a thing that you buy through discipline; it doesn't come into being by giving up sex, or practicing a certain yoga.
It comes into being only when there is understanding of the ways of the self, the 'me', which shows itself through the conscious mind in everyday activity, and also in the unconscious. What matters is to understand for oneself, not through the direction of others, the total content of consciousness, which is conditioned, which is the result of society, of religion, of various impacts, impressions, memories - to understand all that conditioning and be free of it. But there is no "how" to be free. If you ask how to be free, you are not listening.
Jiddu Krishnamurti Completely Content Sayings By Jiddu Krishnamurti: To stand alone is to be uncorrupted, innocent, free of all tradition, of dogma, of
Never accept and be content with unanalyzed assumptions, assumptions about the work, about the people, about the church or Christianity. Never be afraid to ask questions about the work we have inherited or the work we are doing. There is no question that should not be asked or that is outlawed. The day we are completely satisfied with what we have been doing; the day we have found the perfect, unchangeable system of work, the perfect answer, never in need of being corrected again, on that day we will know that we are wrong, that we have made the greatest mistake of all. - VINCENT J. DONOVANBrian D. McLaren Completely Content Sayings By Brian D. McLaren: Never accept and be content with unanalyzed assumptions, assumptions about the work, about the people,
Frustration is the first step towards improvement. I have no incentive to improve if I'm content with what I can do and if I'm completely satisfied with my pace, distance and form as a runner. It's only when I face frustration and use it to fuel my dedication that I feel myself moving forwards.John Bingham Completely Content Sayings By John Bingham: Frustration is the first step towards improvement. I have no incentive to improve if I'm
She gulped her whiskey sour. The bar was hot tonight.
CJ circled back to check on them. "You ladies doing okay?"
"Define okay." Natalie's whiskey seemed to be talking. Because the whiskey was the only thing that could've put that husky, suggestive tone in her voice. Yep, that was all the whiskey.
He propped his elbows on the bar, which put his face level with hers, and fixed his undivided attention on her. There went her lady bits fanning themselves. With a few added whimpers. They remembered what his hands and body and lips felt like too.
"Content." His voice was low and raw, his gaze penetrating and unwavering. "Happy. Completely, one hundred percent satisfied."
Her mouth went dry while the rest of her went up in needy flames that made her want to scratch the all-but-gone rash he'd tended so well on Monday.
"Nope," Natalie squeaked. "Not okay then.
Jamie Farrell Completely Content Sayings By Jamie Farrell: She gulped her whiskey sour. The bar was hot tonight.CJ circled back to check on
I surrender to the pain because it pleases my Master and I know he enjoys giving it to me and that he needs to give it to me in order for him to feel content. That, Dylan, is what appeals to me about BDSM. Pleasing you, my Master, owner and husband, and cherishing you for the Dominant that you are, and feeling a sense of pride in the pleasure and joy that I give to you when I'm obedient and things are perfect and just the way you want them to be. BDSM gives me that sense of purpose and that purpose is to submit to you completely and to accept your gift of submission to me.Ella Dominguez Completely Content Sayings By Ella Dominguez: I surrender to the pain because it pleases my Master and I know he enjoys
I keep myself content by doing lots of different stuff and make sure that my next role is completely different to the last. I just enjoy the versatility of it, the challenge of doing lots of different things. It keeps the job interesting.David Thewlis Completely Content Sayings By David Thewlis: I keep myself content by doing lots of different stuff and make sure that my
If we are to say no to covetousness, we must learn to say yes to contentment. This involves learning to be content with what we have (Hebrews 13:5). Much of our discontentment may be traced to expectations that are essentially selfish and more often than not completely unrealistic.Alistair Begg Completely Content Sayings By Alistair Begg: If we are to say no to covetousness, we must learn to say yes to
[on her Amish friends]I do know this family has borne losses and grief, just like the rest of us. But if they are generally content, must such a life inevitably be dismissed as mythical, or else merely quaint? ... It sounds like a community type that went extinct a generation ago. But it didn't, not completely. If a self-sufficient farming community has survived here, it remains a possibility elsewhere.Barbara Kingsolver Completely Content Sayings By Barbara Kingsolver: [on her Amish friends]I do know this family has borne losses and grief, just like
Any kind of art that seems to be just about normal people, it's judged less by how good of a work of art it is, and more by how much the critic thinks that that is true to life. Which, you know, I think might be why something like Boyhood was so hugely praised, whereas something like Margaret was a little unfairly marginalized. There were people who said, "OK, well, I don't relate to these characters," or, "I think the way they speak is off from real-life" as opposed to saying, "Is what's being expressed in it - is the emotional content true to life?" You can just look on Youtube and see clips into people's real life very easily, so I'm actually more excited by that feeling of, I'm being immersed completely in this one guy's view of the world. But, obviously, I get more excited talking about other people's work than my own.Adrian Tomine Completely Content Sayings By Adrian Tomine: Any kind of art that seems to be just about normal people, it's judged less
