Don't think I don't worry about what I'm missing out on. Don't think I'm not haunted knowing that I might be missing out on things that I'd much prefer not to be missing out on. I am haunted, Betsy. You think I alienate myself from society? Of course I alienate myself from society. It's the only way I know of not being constantly reminded of all the ways I'm alienated from society. That doesn't mean I have anything against other people. Envy them? Of course. Marvel at them? Constantly. Secretly study them? Every day. I just don't get any closer to understanding them. And liking something you don't understand, estranged from it without reason, longing to commune with it - who'd ask for it?Joshua Ferris Not Knowing What You're Missing Sayings By Joshua Ferris: Don't think I don't worry about what I'm missing out on. Don't think I'm not
A lover exists only in fragments, a dozen or so if the romance is new, a thousand if we're married to him, and out of those fragments our heart constructs an entire person. What we each create, since whatever is missing is filled by our imagination, is the person we wish him to be. The less we know him, of course, the more we love him. And that's why we always remember that first rapturous night when he was a stranger, and why this rapture returns only when he's dead.Andrew Sean Greer Not Knowing What You're Missing Sayings By Andrew Sean Greer: A lover exists only in fragments, a dozen or so if the romance is new,

Don't look down on them for looking down on us. Look at them, instead, as friends we don't know yet and who don't yet know what they are missing in not knowing us.Frederick Buechner Not Knowing What You're Missing Sayings By Frederick Buechner: Don't look down on them for looking down on us. Look at them, instead, as
Kaushik, what about a picture?" my father suggested. I shook my head. I had left my camera, my father's old Yashica, at school. "But you always have it with you." That look of irritated disappointment, the one that had appeared the day my mother died and was missing now that he'd married Chitra, passed briefly across my father's face. "I forgot it," I said. It was true, I did always have the camera with me. Even on quiet weekends when I came home and my father and I saw no one I would bring it, taking it with me on walks. This time I had left it behind, knowing that I would not want to document anything. "I don't understand," my father said. "Neither do I," I replied. "You haven't wanted a picture of anything in years." "That's not true." "It is." We were stating facts and at the same time arguing, an argument whose depths only he and I could fully comprehend.Jhumpa Lahiri Not Knowing What You're Missing Sayings By Jhumpa Lahiri: Kaushik, what about a picture?" my father suggested. I shook my head. I had left
But what I miss the most is knowing just exactly where it hurts, knowing just exactly what is wrong and what I want.Chris Pureka Not Knowing What You're Missing Sayings By Chris Pureka: But what I miss the most is knowing just exactly where it hurts, knowing just
Before you ever get the person you really want in your life, you will be tested with every person that was wrong for you. You will be tempted with what was easy, what was familiar, what was only physical, what was safe and what was simply a friend to pull you out of a difficult situation because you didn't want to be alone. When you finally meet the person you were meant to be with you won't have to guess, decide or choose. You will be drawn to them. They will seem to fit who you are, but at the same time have the missing pieces that makes you want to become a better person. There is no need to be guarded because this soul is like your own and talking to them about the deepest things in life are effortless. They won't be like any other you have met and you will find yourself looking for parts of them in everyone you meet.Shannon L. Alder Not Knowing What You're Missing Sayings By Shannon L. Alder: Before you ever get the person you really want in your life, you will be
It's not the theme parks of Paradiso and Inferno that I dread most - the heavenly rides, the hellish crowds - and I could live with the insult of eternal oblivion. I don't even mind not knowing which it will be. What I fear is missing out. Health desire or mere greed, I want my life first, my due, my infinitesimal slice of endless time and one reliable chance of a consciousness. I'm owed a handful of decades to try my luck on a freewheeling planet. That's the ride for me - the Wall of Life. I want my go. I want to become. Put another way, there's a book I want to read, not yet published, not yet written, though a start's been made. I want to read to the end of My History of the Twenty-First Century. I want to be there, on the last page, in my early eighties, frail but sprightly, dancing a jig on the evening of December 31, 2099.Ian McEwan Not Knowing What You're Missing Sayings By Ian McEwan: It's not the theme parks of Paradiso and Inferno that I dread most - the
It doesn't really matter what a person decides to do, or how radically a person plays with gender. What matters, I think, is how aware a person is of the options. How sad for a person to be missing out on some expression of identity, just for not knowing there are optionsKate Bornstein Not Knowing What You're Missing Sayings By Kate Bornstein: It doesn't really matter what a person decides to do, or how radically a person
Why, these men would destroy the Bible on evidence that would not convict a habitual criminal of a misdemeanor. They found a tooth in a sand pit in Nebraska with no other bones about it, and from that one tooth decided that it was the remains of the missing link. They have queer ideas about age too. They find a fossil and when they are asked how old it is they say they can't tell without knowing what rock it was in, and when they are asked how old the rock is they say they can't tell unless they know how old the fossil is.William Jennings Bryan Not Knowing What You're Missing Sayings By William Jennings Bryan: Why, these men would destroy the Bible on evidence that would not convict a habitual
He knows he is missing something. He is always missing something. He can never get past the first stop of finding it, which is knowing what it is.David Levithan Not Knowing What You're Missing Sayings By David Levithan: He knows he is missing something. He is always missing something. He can never get
You know how it is. You feel a little different because other people have two parents, even if they're divorced. It's like you grow up knowing that you're missing something important that everyone else has, but you don't know exactly what it is. I remember hearing my friends talking about how their fathers wouldn't let them stay out late or didn't like their boyfriends. It used to make me so angry because they didn't even realize what they had. Do you know what I mean?Nicholas Sparks Not Knowing What You're Missing Sayings By Nicholas Sparks: You know how it is. You feel a little different because other people have two
When I thought I'd killed him, I felt more alone than I've felt in a long time. Like I couldn't stand walking through this city knowing he wasn't in it. Like somehow, as long as he was out there somewhere, if I was ever really in trouble, I knew where I could go and while maybe he wouldn't do exactly what I wanted him to do, he'd keep me alive. He'd get me through whatever it was to live another day.Karen Marie Moning Not Knowing What You're Missing Sayings By Karen Marie Moning: When I thought I'd killed him, I felt more alone than I've felt in a
As Sidda joined Vivi in staring out into the darkness of the fields, where hundreds of sunflowers grew, she thought: I will never fully know my mother, any more than I will ever know my father or Connor, or myself. I have been missing the point. The point is not knowing another person, or learning to love another person. The point is simply this: how tender can we bear to be? What good manners can we show as we welcome ourselves and others into our hearts?Rebecca Wells Not Knowing What You're Missing Sayings By Rebecca Wells: As Sidda joined Vivi in staring out into the darkness of the fields, where hundreds
I can't help my mind skipping over the here-and-now and racing on, to what might come next. Consequence and regret and other might-have-beens: plotting out every angle and scenario, knowing all along that the path I take means missing something else.Abigail Haas Not Knowing What You're Missing Sayings By Abigail Haas: I can't help my mind skipping over the here-and-now and racing on, to what might
We remember what it was like to meet someone new. We remember what it was like to grant someone possibility. You look out from your own world and then you step into his, not really knowing what you'll find there, but hoping it will be something good. Both Ryan and Avery are doing this. You step into his world and you don't even realize your loneliness is missing. You've left it behind, and you don't notice because you have no desire to turn back.David Levithan Not Knowing What You're Missing Sayings By David Levithan: We remember what it was like to meet someone new. We remember what it was
