The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people." "Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy." "I did," said Ford. "It is." "So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?" "It honestly doesn't occur to them," said Ford.

You find out you don't really belong anywhere. — Kirsty Eagar

Don Assume Sayings By Jerry Bridges: Whether fellowship is perceived as participation or partnership, in either case it implies a responsibility Whether fellowship is perceived as participation or partnership, in either case it implies a responsibility to fulfill our function in the body. We usually don't think of fellowship in terms of fulfilling a responsibility, but that is because we have lost sight of the biblical meaning of fellowship. Fellowship is not just a social privilege to enjoy; it is more basically a responsibility to assume. — Jerry Bridges

Don Assume Sayings By Shakti Gawain: Our negative thoughts are valuable messages to us about our deeper fears and negative attitudes. Our negative thoughts are valuable messages to us about our deeper fears and negative attitudes. These usually are so basic to our thinking and feeling that we don't realize they are beliefs at all. We assume that they are simply "the way life is." We may be consciously affirming and visualizing prosperity, but if our unconscious belief is that we don't deserve it, then we won't create it. Once we become aware of our core negative beliefs, they begin to heal. — Shakti Gawain

It's a little like when people are afraid of the dark. Often it's not the darkness they're afraid of, it's the fact that they don't know what's in it. And because they can't see, because they're not sure, they start to imagine there are more sinister things afoot than there ordinarily would be. — Craig Silvey

If a guy tells you, I have trouble trusting women, you don't assume he's just had bad experiences and you can fix things by being the nicest, best woman of all time. You go, Thanks for the warning. Good luck with that. Nice knowing you. Then you walk away without ever looking back. And if someone says they're going to hurt you? Don't stick around and wait for them to prove it. — Claudia Gray

Don Assume Sayings By Rebecca Solnit: The moment when mortality, ephemerality, uncertainty, suffering, or the possibility of change arrives can split The moment when mortality, ephemerality, uncertainty, suffering, or the possibility of change arrives can split a life in two. Facts and ideas we might have heard a thousand times assume a vivid, urgent, felt reality. We knew them then, but they matter now. They are like guests that suddenly speak up and make demands upon us; sometimes they appear as guides, sometimes they just wreck what came before or shove us out the door. We answer them, when we answer, with how we lead our lives. Sometimes what begins as bad news prompts the true path of a life, a disruptive visitor that might be thanked only later. Most of us don't change until we have to, and crisis is often what obliges us to do so. Crises are often resolved only through anew identity and new purpose, whether it's that of a nation or a single human being. — Rebecca Solnit

Don Assume Sayings By Stephen King: Why don't we all just go crazy when we know were going to croak? Because Why don't we all just go crazy when we know were going to croak? Because the mind's a monkey. You put things in departments and you go ahead. You go on and plan for the future and assume that the future's going to work out okay. Yet we know that sooner or later we're all going to be eating worms, whether it's fifty years or sixty. It might be tomorrow. It might happen today. — Stephen King

Don Assume Sayings By Patrick Rothfuss: She has enough men fawning over her," I said. "They come and go like ... She has enough men fawning over her," I said. "They come and go like ... " I strained to think of an analogy and failed. "I'd rather be her friend."
"You would rather be close to her heart," Wilem said without any particular inflection. "You would rather be joyfully held in the circle of her arms. But you fear she will reject you. You fear she would laugh and you would look the fool." Wilem shrugged easily. "You are hardly the first to feel this way. There is no shame in it."
That struck uncomfortably close to the mark, and for a long moment I couldn't think of anything to say in reply. "I hope," I admitted quietly. "But I don't want to assume. I've seen what happens to the men that assume too much and cling to her. — Patrick Rothfuss

"Why don't they teach logic at these schools? There are only three possibilities. Either your sister is telling lies, or she is mad, or she is
telling the truth. You know she doesn't tell lies and it is obvious that she is not mad. For the moment then and unless any further evidence turns up, we must assume that she is telling the truth. — C.S. Lewis
Don Assume Sayings By Ricky Gervais: I don't feel any pressure at all because I don't care. That's an occupational hazard I don't feel any pressure at all because I don't care. That's an occupational hazard ... but if you're doing anything of any worth, and not doing something that's safe and anodyne and trying to be populist and a national treasure, then you've got to assume that as many people hate what you do - and you - as like what you do and like you. — Ricky Gervais
Don Assume Sayings By Lance Armstrong: When you win, you don't examine it very much, except to congratulate yourself. You easily, When you win, you don't examine it very much, except to congratulate yourself. You easily, and wrongly, assume it has something to do with your rare qualities as a person. But winning only measures how hard you've worked and how physically talented you are; it doesn't particularly define you beyond those characteristics.
Losing on the other hand, really does say something about who you are. Among other things it measures are: do you blame others, or do you own the loss? Do you analyze your failure, or just complain about bad luck?
If you're willing to examine failure, and to look not just at your outward physical performance, but your internal workings, too, losing can be valuable. How you behave in those moments can perhaps be more self-defining than winning could ever be. Sometimes losing shows you for who you really are. — Lance Armstrong
Don Assume Sayings By Jessica Bennett: Imposter syndrome" wasn't coined as a term until the 1970s, but it's safe to assume Imposter syndrome" wasn't coined as a term until the 1970s, but it's safe to assume women have always felt it: that nagging feeling that, even after you've just done something great, maybe you actually don't deserve the
praise. — Jessica Bennett
Don Assume Sayings By Steve Alford: A freshman has only about 25% of his degree completed. They go off to play A freshman has only about 25% of his degree completed. They go off to play professional basketball, and to assume they will come back and get the degree done five, six, seven years later, I don't see that happening. — Steve Alford
Don Assume Sayings By Lundy Bancroft: When we hear these kinds of excuses from a drunk, we assume they are exactly When we hear these kinds of excuses from a drunk, we assume they are exactly that - excuses.

Don Assume Sayings By John Green: Tiny, the next time that you try to set me up with a girl with Tiny, the next time that you try to set me up with a girl with a secret boyfriend can you at least INFORM me that she has a secret boyfriend? Also, if you don't call me back within five minutes, I'm going to assume you found a way back to Evanston. Furthermore, you are an asshat. That is all. — John Green

Don Assume Sayings By Lee Child: Enough, a person might say, if that person lived in the civilized world, the world Enough, a person might say, if that person lived in the civilized world, the world of movies and television and fair play and decent restraint. But Reacher didn't live there. He lived in a world where you don't start fights but you sure as hell finish them, and you don't lose them either, and he was the inheritor of generations of hard-won wisdom that said the best way to lose them was to assume they were over when they weren't yet. — Lee Child

Don Assume Sayings By Douglas Adams: Adams has done a bit of everything, from radio to television to designing computer games. Adams has done a bit of everything, from radio to television to designing computer games. Not all of them worked out.

"These are life's little learning experiences," he said. "You know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says, 'You know that thing you just did? Don't do that.'

"At the end of all this being-determined-to-be-a-jack-of-all-trades, I think I'm better off just sitting down and putting a hundred thousand words in a cunning order."

Adams writes "slowly and painfully."

"People assume you sit in a room, looking pensive and writing great thoughts," he said. "But you mostly sit in a room looking panic-stricken and hoping they haven't put a guard on the door yet. — Douglas Adams

Don Assume Sayings By Zadie Smith: I remember so clearly, in the early days, if I had to do a piece I remember so clearly, in the early days, if I had to do a piece of press, they'd phone for me and say, 'Oh, we're going to bring hair and makeup, it'll take about five hours.' And I said, 'Well, if it was Ian McEwan, would it take about five hours? Would there be hair and makeup? Cause if that's not the case, then don't bring the hair and makeup.' So, it's fascinating that they just assume: it's a young woman, she must want to be photographed for five hours. She must have nothing better to do than delight in trying on all your shoes. But it's not the case. — Zadie Smith

Don Assume Sayings By William S. Burroughs: I am not one of those weak-spirited, sappy Americans who want to be liked by I am not one of those weak-spirited, sappy Americans who want to be liked by all the people around them. I don't care if people hate my guts; I assume most of them do. The important question is whether they are in a position to do anything about it. My affections, being concentrated over a few people, are not spread all over Hell in a vile attempt to placate sulky, worthless shits. — William S. Burroughs
Don Assume Sayings By Barbra Streisand: You don't ask a man, 'Do you want to be in control [of your job]?' You don't ask a man, 'Do you want to be in control [of your job]?' You assume he wants control. Why would a woman be any different? — Barbra Streisand

And for you to turn from practically panting at the mere mention of her name - because you were, Garret, you know you were - to spreading vile rumors about her is low! Low and unworthy of you!'
'She lied to me,' Mayne forced out, walking to the mantelpiece.
'Wait!' his sister said contemptuously. 'Do I hear the sound of violins wailing? So you've never lied, is that it? You - who've made a name for yourself by sleeping with half the married women in London? You dare reproach a woman for lying? — Eloisa James

Discarnate or mortal, what matters about people is what they know. — Richard Bach
Don Assume Sayings By Jennifer Senior: It is unrealistic, I think - and by "unrealistic" I mean it is a demand It is unrealistic, I think - and by "unrealistic" I mean it is a demand that cannot be met - to assume that if all goes well in a child's life, he or she will be happy. Not because life is the kind of thing that doesn't make you happy; but because happiness is not something one can ask of a child. Children, I think, suffer - in a way that adults don't always realize - under the pressure their parents put on them to be happy, which is the pressure not to make their parents unhappy, or more unhappy than they already are. — Jennifer Senior
Don Assume Sayings By Queen Latifah: I don't feel like I need to share my personal life, and I don't care I don't feel like I need to share my personal life, and I don't care if people think I'm gay or not. Assume whatever you want. You do it anyway. — Queen Latifah

Don Assume Sayings By Dan Ariely: The effort that we put into something does not just change the object. It changes The effort that we put into something does not just change the object. It changes us and the way we evaluate that object. Greater labor leads to greater love. Our overvaluation of the things we make runs so deep that we assume that others share our biased perspective. When we cannot complete something into which we have put great effort, we don't feel so attached to it. — Dan Ariely

Don Assume Sayings By Susan Mitchell: Typing is an essential skill, but it can be painful. Some children just don't know Typing is an essential skill, but it can be painful. Some children just don't know where the letters are. Typing a three-page story, when they have to spend minutes hunting for every letter, can take forever. Yet we tend to assume that children can type, partly because quite a lot of us know where quite a lot of the letters are, so we assume that children do, too. — Susan Mitchell

"Half?"
"Well, some," she amended. "But truly, that's not the problem."

She did. Of course. "I don't think Italian is the author's native tongue," she said.
"The author of the dictionary?" he queried.
"Yes. It's not terribly idiomatic. — Julia Quinn

Don Assume Sayings By J. Sterling: Life is too short..and nothing is certain. Nothing. Just because you tell someone you'll talk Life is too short..and nothing is certain. Nothing. Just because you tell someone you'll talk to them later, or you'll see them tomorrow, there is no guarantee that either of those things will happen. You hope they will. Hell, we all assume they will. But we don't really know. Life can change in an instant. A single instant. — J. Sterling

Don Assume Sayings By Jodi Picoult: I don't understand why people never say what they mean. It's like the immigrants who I don't understand why people never say what they mean. It's like the immigrants who come to a country and learn the language but are completely baffled by idioms. (Seriously, how could anyone who isn't a native English speaker 'get the picture,' so to speak, and not assume it has something to do with a photo or a painting?) — Jodi Picoult
Don Assume Sayings By Meg Cabot: I don't know everything," she said. Her eyes were filling with tears. "If I knew I don't know everything," she said. Her eyes were filling with tears. "If I knew everything, would I have gotten into this mess in the first place? I certainly don't know why you assume I'm going to drop everything and fly off to Antigua with you. I don't even know what I'm doing her. I don't know why we haven't talked in two weeks. And the worst part is, if I do go to Antigua with you, I don't know if I'll ever want to come back. I'm pretty sure I'll want to stay there with you forever." She was crying so hard, she couldn't even see him. "And the fact that I just said that out loud is even scarier to me than vampires. — Meg Cabot
Don Assume Sayings By S.D. Tanner: We should never judge what we don't understand and we must never assume we understand We should never judge what we don't understand and we must never assume we understand until we truly do. — S.D. Tanner
Don Assume Sayings By Buzz Aldrin: Globalisation means many other countries are asserting themselves and trying to take over leadership. Please Globalisation means many other countries are asserting themselves and trying to take over leadership. Please don't ask Americans to let others assume the leadership of human exploration. We can do wonderful science on the Moon, and wonderful commercial things. Then we can pack up and move on to Mars. — Buzz Aldrin
Don Assume Sayings By Jacquetta Hawkes: There is a danger, when thinking of the earliest civilized people, of putting too much There is a danger, when thinking of the earliest civilized people, of putting too much emphasis on technology. One tends to assume that if you don't have, at least, a lavatory and perhaps something that will take you a lot faster than your own feet, or a certain number of gadgets in the house, then you must be in some way, a bit backward and defective ... the important thing to remember is that technology is not necessarily the same thing as civilization. — Jacquetta Hawkes
Don Assume Sayings By Michelle Sagara West: I don't make the laws, I just enforce them.""Then remind me to introduce a new I don't make the laws, I just enforce them."

Don Assume Sayings By Jon Moore: People always confuse intelligence with rational thinking and skepticism. I think it's a big mistake People always confuse intelligence with rational thinking and skepticism. I think it's a big mistake to assume anyone that follows a cult, religion, political party we don't like, etc is "stupid." But it's fair to say that if you follow something irrational, you are acting irrationally (at least as it pertains to that one specific act.) People can be smart - even brilliant - without necessarily being rational. Sometimes it's easy for people to be skeptical to most things, but with one or two glaring blind spots. If you don't spend a good portion of time playing devil's advocate with your own dearly held beliefs, odds are that there will be at least a couple of them that are irrational, even if you're one of the smartest people around. — Jon Moore
Don Assume Sayings By Suzanne Vega: Sometimes I listen to songs by very smart writers who assume that the world is Sometimes I listen to songs by very smart writers who assume that the world is a civil place with certain formalities that people follow, but I don't see things that way. My own experience tells me that life is not like that. — Suzanne Vega

Of course, they're gonna think, 'Oh, are you some sort of Hispanic?' and you say, 'No, I'm actually not.' I get Korean or Chinese a lot. — Jose Antonio Vargas

Don Assume Sayings By Mystery: Persistence - This is another way to relieve her of any responsibility for what is Persistence - This is another way to relieve her of any responsibility for what is happening. Of course, don't confuse persistence with begging, arguing, or being pushy, needy, or creepy. All it means is don't give up too easily. Girls may test you to find out how easily you throw in the towel - they want to gauge your self-confidence. Just assume that she is giving a little token resistance, and continue. If she didn't resist at least a little bit, she would feel like a slut - and that's not going to happen. And if you can't take her crap, how in the world are you going to protect her from other people's crap?
This can be tricky - an overly aggressive man might misinterpret all resistance as being merely token and could eventually find himself facing a rape charge. However, a man who isn't persistence enough will acquiesce every time a women resists, when in may cases she was secretly hoping he could be a little more forceful. — Mystery
Don Assume Sayings By Sarah Painter: Maybe it's the coma, but I'm genuinely happy to be here.' 'You don't have to Maybe it's the coma, but I'm genuinely happy to be here.' 'You don't have to do that, you know.' 'Do what?' 'Assume that everything is different now. You're still the same person you always were, you've just got some gaps to fill in. You mustn't think that you're starting all over again.' 'Is — Sarah Painter
Don Assume Sayings By E. M. Forster: I have, however, to live in an age of Faith - the sort of thing I have, however, to live in an age of Faith - the sort of thing I used to hear praised and recommended when I was a boy. It is damned unpleasant, really. It is bloody in every sense of the word. And I have to keep my end up in it. Where do I start?

With personal relationships. Here is something comparatively solid in a world full of violence and cruelty. Not absolutely solid... We don't know what other people are like. How then can we put any trust in personal relationships, or cling to them in the gathering political storm? In theory we can't. But in practice we can and do. Though A is unchangeably A or B unchangeably B, there can still be love and loyalty between the two. For the purpose of loving one has to assume that the personality is solid, and the "self" is an entity, and to ignore all contrary evidence. And since to ignore evidence is one of the characteristics of faith, I certainly can proclaim that I believe in personal relationships. — E. M. Forster

Don Assume Sayings By Annette Simmons: It is safe to assume that any individual or group you wish to influence has It is safe to assume that any individual or group you wish to influence has access to more wisdom than they currently use. It is also safe to assume that they also have considerably more facts than they can process effectively. Giving them even more facts adds to the wrong pile. They don't need more facts. They need help finding their wisdom. Contrary to popular belief, bad decisions are rarely made because people don't have all the facts. — Annette Simmons

but in love our very mistakes don't seem to be able to last long? — Thornton Wilder
Don Assume Sayings By Allie Everhart: Well, truthfully, I don't understand them because I don't trust them. I always assume people Well, truthfully, I don't understand them because I don't trust them. I always assume people are lying because nobody wants to hear the truth. They say they do, but they really don't. But sometimes people need to hear the truth, even if they don't like it. — Allie Everhart

Don Assume Sayings By Kelly Williams Brown: People will come to care about you, but only if you give them a valid People will come to care about you, but only if you give them a valid reason. Don't assume they'll give you love like your parents, emotional support like your best friend, and cheerful feedback like a soccer coach for seven-year-olds. Because they won't, unless you give them good reason to. And even then, they still probably won't. — Kelly Williams Brown
Don Assume Sayings By Napoleon Hill: It is in quiet that our best ideas occur to us. Don't make the mistake It is in quiet that our best ideas occur to us. Don't make the mistake of believing that by a frantic kind of dashing around you are being your most effective and efficient self. Don't assume that you are wasting time when you take time out for thought. — Napoleon Hill

Don Assume Sayings By Linda Tirado: Living in low-income neighborhoods, I've seen sexual health campaigns aimed at slut-shaming us into celibacy. Living in low-income neighborhoods, I've seen sexual health campaigns aimed at slut-shaming us into celibacy. They talk about things like self-esteem and value and all the usual abstinence arguments. They assume that our bodies are a gift that we should bestow selectively on others, rather than the one thing that can never be anything but our own. Even if we do share it, it is ours irrevocably.
These are the bodies that hold the brains we're supposed to shut off all day at work, the same bodies that aren't important enough to heal. These are the bodies that come with the genitalia that we should be so protective of? I really don't understand the logic.
You can't tell us that our brains and labor and emotions are worth next to nothing and then expect us to get all full of intrinsic worth when it comes to our genitals. Either we're cheap or we're not.
Make up your fucking mind. — Linda Tirado

Don Assume Sayings By John Sheridan: I learned about choices and consequences and responsibility. I learned that we all have choices, I learned about choices and consequences and responsibility. I learned that we all have choices, even when we don't recognize them, and that those choices have consequences, not just for ourselves, but for others. We must assume responsibility for those consequences. — John Sheridan

Don Assume Sayings By Pam Johnson-Bennett: Cats are true carnivores. While you may choose a vegetarian lifestyle, don't assume it's healthier Cats are true carnivores. While you may choose a vegetarian lifestyle, don't assume it's healthier for your cat also. Cats aren't able to convert beta-carotene into vitamin A the way we can. They must get vitamin A from animal tissue (called preformed A). Cats are also unable to convert linoleic acid (an essential fatty acid) to arachidonic acid the way dogs can so they must get preformed arachidonic acid from its only source - animal tissue. — Pam Johnson-Bennett
Don Assume Sayings By Andrew Holleran: When you put something down that happened, people often don't believe it; whereas, you can When you put something down that happened, people often don't believe it; whereas, you can make up anything, and people assume it must have happened to you. — Andrew Holleran

Don Assume Sayings By Wm. Paul Young: Just because I work incredible good out of unspeakable tragedies doesn't mean I orchestrate the Just because I work incredible good out of unspeakable tragedies doesn't mean I orchestrate the tragedies. Don't ever assume that my using something means I caused it or that I need it to accomplish my purposes. That will only lead you to false notions about me. Grace doesn't depend on suffering to exist, but where there is suffering you will find grace in many facets and colors. — Wm. Paul Young
