Prayer is looking out from a different set of eyes, which are not comparing, competing, judging, labeling or analyzing, but receiving the moment in its present wholeness and unwholeness. That is what is meant by contemplation.Richard Rohr Not Labeling Sayings By Richard Rohr: Prayer is looking out from a different set of eyes, which are not comparing, competing,
However when we talk about dependent arising or dependent origination in the Buddhist context, our understanding should not be limited to dependent arising only in terms of causes and conditions. Rather our understanding must embrace a broader and in some sense deeper understanding of dependence. Dependence need not necessarily be understood only in terms of causes and conditions; one can talk about dependence in relation to parts and the whole. The very concepts of parts and a whole are interconnected and interdependent. In some sense one emerges only in relationship to the other. Still there is a further and deeper understanding of dependent origination which is to understand dependent origination in terms of a designated basis and the designation that involves a labeling process. This view understands things and events in the form of mental constructs.Dalai Lama XIV Not Labeling Sayings By Dalai Lama XIV: However when we talk about dependent arising or dependent origination in the Buddhist context, our
I don't want to be labeled as either a pansy or a heterosexual. Labeling is so self-limiting. We are what we do - not what we say we are.Montgomery Clift Not Labeling Sayings By Montgomery Clift: I don't want to be labeled as either a pansy or a heterosexual. Labeling is
When you are spiritually connected, you are not looking for occasions to be offended, and you are not judging and labeling others. You are in a state of grace in which you know you are connected to God and thus free from the effects of anyone or anything external to yourself.Wayne Dyer Not Labeling Sayings By Wayne Dyer: When you are spiritually connected, you are not looking for occasions to be offended, and
Labeling yourself is not only self-defeating, it is irrational. Your self cannot be equated with any one thing you do. Your life is a complex and ever-changing flow of thoughts, emotions, and actions. To put it another way, you are more like a river than a statue. Stop trying to define yourself with negative labels - theyDavid D. Burns Not Labeling Sayings By David D. Burns: Labeling yourself is not only self-defeating, it is irrational. Your self cannot be equated with
Dads. Do you honestly expect anybody to believe that you can't find 20 minutes to step away from your computer or turn off the television to play with your child? It has to happen every single day. Do you not understand that children will hinge their entire facet of trust on whether or not their dad plays with them and how involved he is when he plays with them? Do you know the damage you do by not playing with your children every day?Dan Pearce Not Labeling Sayings By Dan Pearce: Dads. Do you honestly expect anybody to believe that you can't find 20 minutes to
[The Center for Science in the Public Interest forced] PepsiCo to change the labeling of its Tropicana Peach Papaya Juice to reflect ... that it has neither peaches nor papaya and is not a juice.Michael Moss Not Labeling Sayings By Michael Moss: [The Center for Science in the Public Interest forced] PepsiCo to change the labeling of
As she grew older, Maddy discovered that she had disappointed almost everyone. An awkward girl with a sullen mouth, a curtain of hair, and a tendency to slouch, she had neither Mae's sweet nature nor sweet face. Her eyes were rather beautiful, but few people ever noticed this, and it was widely believed Maddy was ugly, a troublemaker, too clever for her own good, too stubborn - or too slack - to change.
Of course, folk agreed that it was not her fault she was so brown or her sister so pretty, but a smile costs nothing, as the saying goes, and if only the girl had made an effort once in a while, or even showed a little gratitude for all the help and free advice, then maybe she would have settled down.
Joanne Harris Not Labeling Sayings By Joanne Harris: As she grew older, Maddy discovered that she had disappointed almost everyone. An awkward girl
I also believe in cigarettes, cholesterol, alcohol, carbon monoxide, masturbation, the Arts Council, nuclear weapons, the Daily Telegraph, and not properly labeling fatal poisons, but above all else, most of all, I believe in the one thing that can come out of people's mouths: vomit.Dennis Potter Not Labeling Sayings By Dennis Potter: I also believe in cigarettes, cholesterol, alcohol, carbon monoxide, masturbation, the Arts Council, nuclear weapons,
When you completely accept this moment, when you no longer argue with what is, the compulsion to think lessens and is replaced by an alert stillness. You are fully conscious, yet the mind is not labeling this moment in any way ... It is a shift from identification with form
the thought or the emotion
to being and recognizing yourself as that which has no form
spacious awareness.
Eckhart Tolle Not Labeling Sayings By Eckhart Tolle: When you completely accept this moment, when you no longer argue with what is, the
The entire EU has labeling for GMOs, and is simply saying let's let consumers know what they're buying, let's let them choose. I think it's a huge mistake by the food manufacturers of America not to be saying let's let consumers know. Let's let them know, let them decide.Peter Shumlin Not Labeling Sayings By Peter Shumlin: The entire EU has labeling for GMOs, and is simply saying let's let consumers know
We aren't human."
"Yes. We. Are." His voice turns fierce. "I don't give a shit what the something-somethingth council of big important farts decreed, or how the geomests classify things, or any of that. That we're not human is just the lie they tell themselves so they don't have to feel bad about how they treat us.

If I pick up a book with spaceships on the cover, I want spaceships. If I see one with dragons, I want there to be dragons inside the book. Proper labeling. Ethical labeling. I don't want to open up my cornflakes and find that they're full of pebbles ... You need to respect the reader enough not to call it something it isn't.Margaret Atwood Not Labeling Sayings By Margaret Atwood: If I pick up a book with spaceships on the cover, I want spaceships. If
Dads. Do your faces light up when you first see your child in the morning or when you come home from work? Do you not understand that a child's entire sense of value can revolve around what they see in your face when you first see them?Dan Pearce Not Labeling Sayings By Dan Pearce: Dads. Do your faces light up when you first see your child in the morning
We do not want to deny existence. Yet we also do not want to limit existence. Thus, we observe and honor without forming opinion, labeling, or adding a story to the object of our observation.Alaric Hutchinson Not Labeling Sayings By Alaric Hutchinson: We do not want to deny existence. Yet we also do not want to limit
That is, whether or not an act is considered deviant depends upon how it is labeled (defined) by other people. For example, in a well-known study of jazz musicians, Becker (1963) found marijuana use to be considered normal by the musicians, but labeled as illegal, deviant behavior by the larger society, and subject to sanctions like arrest, fines, and jail terms. Although labeling theory pertained to deviance generally, several studies focused on the mental patient experience in which persons once treated for mental illness found it difficult to shed the label of "former mental patient" even if the experience was in the past and the person supposedly cured (Scheff [1966] 1999).William C. Cockerham Not Labeling Sayings By William C. Cockerham: That is, whether or not an act is considered deviant depends upon how it is
And in some environments, talking like an overly-educated, holier-than-thou reformer is an automatic hook. Don't get any tribal feelings about that description, either. The most sanctimonious holier-than-thou people I know are progressive social activists, not religious zealots. (Ooooh. Look at all the labeling in that sentence!)Rory Miller Not Labeling Sayings By Rory Miller: And in some environments, talking like an overly-educated, holier-than-thou reformer is an automatic hook. Don't
It was a reminder that the labeling of others is usually a silent process. Most people do not openly force us into roles, they merely suggest that we adopt them through their reactions to us, and hence surreptitiously prevent us from moving beyond whatever mold they have assigned us. 12. AAlain De Botton Not Labeling Sayings By Alain De Botton: It was a reminder that the labeling of others is usually a silent process. Most
But what the long walk had not done was reveal the cause of the inherent distaste that had sprung out of nowhere overtaking her there under the tree. On the cold, damp grass, or up against the rough tree trunk. He had done it many times without a second thought, and in more challenging situations. It would have been nothing at all to wrap her long legs around his waist, brace one hand against the tree trunk, hold her tight with his other arm, and give the lady exactly what she wanted.

But for some reason he had not been able to do it. For the first time in his life, his body had been willing but his mind had not. Labeling the experience unpleasant would be a severe understatement.
Evangeline Collins Not Labeling Sayings By Evangeline Collins: But what the long walk had not done was reveal the cause of the inherent
So much of college is girls labeling other girls terrible things when they don't like their behavior, but using concerned language so they have plausible deniability is they get accused of being bitches: That girl is not cheerfully doing what the rest of us are doing, so she is probably 'depressed' or 'has an eating disorder' or 'is weird with guys,' and so on.Mindy Kaling Not Labeling Sayings By Mindy Kaling: So much of college is girls labeling other girls terrible things when they don't like
Labels are for filing. Labels are for clothing. Labels are not for people.Martina Navratilova Not Labeling Sayings By Martina Navratilova: Labels are for filing. Labels are for clothing. Labels are not for people.
Many people are so imprisoned in their minds that the beauty of nature does not really exist for them. They might say, 'What a pretty flower,' but that's just a mechanical mental labeling. Because they are not still, not present, they don't truly see the flower, don't feel it's essence, it's holiness-just as they don't know themselves, don't feel their own essence, their own holiness.Eckhart Tolle Not Labeling Sayings By Eckhart Tolle: Many people are so imprisoned in their minds that the beauty of nature does not
A label is a mask life wears. We put labels on life all the time. "Right," "wrong," "success," "failure," "lucky," "unlucky," may be as limiting a way of seeing things as "diabetic," "epileptic," "manic-depressive," or even "invalid." Labeling sets up an expectation of life that is often so compelling we can no longer see things as they really are. This expectation often gives us a false sense of familiarity toward something that is really new and unprecedented. We are in relationship with our expectations and not with life itself.Rachel Naomi Remen Not Labeling Sayings By Rachel Naomi Remen: A label is a mask life wears. We put labels on life all the time.
Sometimes they almost made me feel glad that I had a few extra years to play my depression out with therapy and other means, because I think its useful in youth- unless suicide or drug abuse are the alternatives- to have some faith in the mind to cure itself, to not rush to doctors or diagnosis's ... I sometimes worry that part of what creates depression in young people is their own, and their parents, and the whole worlds impatience with allowing the phases of life to run their course. We will very likely soon be living in a society that confuses disease with normal life if the panic and rush to judgment and labeling do not slow down a bit. Somewhere between the unbelievable tardiness that the medical profession was guilty of in administering proper treatment to me and the eagerness to with which practitioners prescribe Ritalin for 8 year old boys and Paxil for 14 year old girls, there is a sane course of action.Elizabeth Wurtzel Not Labeling Sayings By Elizabeth Wurtzel: Sometimes they almost made me feel glad that I had a few extra years to
We need to look at the totality of the things that we're labeling as violent and really examine whether we need to have some more proportionality in terms of the punishment fitting the crime that's done. The bright line that we have right now, between violent and nonviolent, does not account for shades of gray.Cory Booker Not Labeling Sayings By Cory Booker: We need to look at the totality of the things that we're labeling as violent
Stop labeling people just because they're not like you.Joyce Meyer Not Labeling Sayings By Joyce Meyer: Stop labeling people just because they're not like you.
I'm not an optimist. I'm a realist. And my reality is that we live in a multifaceted, multicultural world. And maybe once we stop labeling ourselves, then maybe everyone else will.Octavia Spencer Not Labeling Sayings By Octavia Spencer: I'm not an optimist. I'm a realist. And my reality is that we live in
Do we not see the influence we have when we say we believe in one thing, but our children see us living something else? Do we not realize how little we encourage our children to actually decide what they believe, declare what they believe, and then live by it? Whether it's religion, politics, sports, or societal norms. It is not our place to tell our kids what to think. It is our place to teach our kids to think correctly. If we do this, we need have no fear of what they will decide for themselves and how strongly they'll stand behind it. A man will follow his own convictions to his death, but he'll only follow another man's convictions until he steps in manure.Dan Pearce Not Labeling Sayings By Dan Pearce: Do we not see the influence we have when we say we believe in one
Dads. Do you not realize that a child is what you tell them they are? That people almost always become what they are labeled? Was whatever your child just did really the "dumbest thing you've ever seen somebody do"? Was it really the "most ridiculous thing they ever could have done"? Do you really believe that your child is an idiot? Because she now does. Think about that. Because you said it, she now believes it. Bravo.Dan Pearce Not Labeling Sayings By Dan Pearce: Dads. Do you not realize that a child is what you tell them they are?
My father was quite conscious of that distinction, too, and because he spoke very freely in private, he used to sometimes say, quite fiercely, "Now that's secret!" And then if I or somebody else looked hurt because they thought, "Well, of course I'm not going to leave the table and pick up the telephone and ring the papers." If Papa saw that we were wounded, he would say, "It isn't that I don't trust you, but I'm labeling it, I'm labeling it." That phrase passed into family history. "I'm labeling it!" Papa would say, quite merrily sometimes.Mary Soames Not Labeling Sayings By Mary Soames: My father was quite conscious of that distinction, too, and because he spoke very freely
Safe relationships are centered and grounded in forgiveness. When you have a friend with the ability to forgive you for hurting her or letting her down, something deeply spiritual occurs in the transaction between you two. You actually experience a glimpse of the deepest nature of God himself. People who forgive can - and should - also be people who confront. What is not confessed can't be forgiven. God himself confronts our sins and shows us how we wound him: "I have been hurt by their adulterous hearts which turned away from me, and by their eyes, which played the harlot after their idols" (Ezek. 6:9 NASB). When we are made aware of how we hurt a loved one, then we can be reconciled. Therefore, you shouldn't discount someone who "has something against you," labeling him as unsafe. He might actually be attempting to come closer in love, in the way that the Bible tells us we are to do.Henry Cloud Not Labeling Sayings By Henry Cloud: Safe relationships are centered and grounded in forgiveness. When you have a friend with the
I really wish Hollywood would stop labeling movies, especially movies with predominantly black casts. Then, it makes others feel like, "Oh, well, that's not for me." At the end of the day, everybody understands love, loss, pain and heartbreak. That's not a color.Taraji P. Henson Not Labeling Sayings By Taraji P. Henson: I really wish Hollywood would stop labeling movies, especially movies with predominantly black casts. Then,
We must be very careful that we do not label persons with dementia by their Behaviours. Labels can often reflect attitudes and can shape how we respond to people. It is not unusual to hear a resident labeled as a "wanderer" or a "hitter". Labels can make people assume the Behaviour reflects the person and fail to recognise that the person is experiencing pain, fear or some other emotional or physical problem that needs to be addressed. LabelingPeter Gathercole Not Labeling Sayings By Peter Gathercole: We must be very careful that we do not label persons with dementia by their
The process begins with the individual woman's acceptance that American women, without exception, are socialized to be racist, classist and sexist, in varying degrees, and that labeling ourselves feminists does not change the fact that we must consciously work to rid ourselves of the legacy of negative socialization.Bell Hooks Not Labeling Sayings By Bell Hooks: The process begins with the individual woman's acceptance that American women, without exception, are socialized
Anyone who truly cares about children must be repelled by the insistence on ranking them, rating them, and labeling them. Whatever the tests measure is not the sum and substance of any child. The tests do not measure character, spirit, heart, soul, potential. When overused and misused, when attached to high stakes, the tests stifle the very creativity and ingenuity that our society needs most. Creativity and ingenuity stubbornly resist standardization. Tests should be used sparingly to help students and teachers, not to allocate rewards and punishments and not to label children and adults by their scores.Diane Ravitch Not Labeling Sayings By Diane Ravitch: Anyone who truly cares about children must be repelled by the insistence on ranking them,
Children are gifts. They are not ours for the breaking. They are ours for the making.Dan Pearce Not Labeling Sayings By Dan Pearce: Children are gifts. They are not ours for the breaking. They are ours for the
Dads. It's time to show our sons how to properly treat a woman. It's time to show our daughters how a girl should expect be treated. It's time to show forgiveness and compassion. It's time to show our children empathy. It's time to break social norms and teach a healthier way of life! It's time to teach good gender roles and to ditch the unnecessary ones. Does it really matter if your son likes the color pink? Is it going to hurt anybody? Do you not see the damage it inflicts to tell a boy that there is something wrong with him because he likes a certain color? Do we not see the damage we do in labeling our girls "tom boys" or our boys "feminine" just because they have their own likes and opinions on things? Things that really don't matter?Dan Pearce Not Labeling Sayings By Dan Pearce: Dads. It's time to show our sons how to properly treat a woman. It's time
Do you not realize that your kids are going to make mistakes, and a lot of them? Do you not realize the damage you do when you push your son's nose into his mishaps or make your daughter feel worthless because she bumped or spilled something? Do you have any idea how easy it is to make your child feel abject? It's as simple as letting out the words, "why would you do that!?" or "how many times have I told you ...Dan Pearce Not Labeling Sayings By Dan Pearce: Do you not realize that your kids are going to make mistakes, and a lot
I'm very much down to earth, just not this earth.Karl Lagerfeld Not Labeling Sayings By Karl Lagerfeld: I'm very much down to earth, just not this earth.
This is a business meal. The calories do not count. I am mentally labeling these as 'business calories' so my body will know they were eaten in the line of duty and will process them differently.Cathy Guisewite Not Labeling Sayings By Cathy Guisewite: This is a business meal. The calories do not count. I am mentally labeling these
The labeling of nociceptors as pain fibers was not an admirable simplification, but an unfortunate trivialization under the guise of simplification.Patrick David Wall Not Labeling Sayings By Patrick David Wall: The labeling of nociceptors as pain fibers was not an admirable simplification, but an unfortunate
Hang-ups and addictions do not have the last word. Today's problem is not necessarily tomorrow's problem. Don't incarcerate yourself by assuming it is. Resist self-labeling. "I'm just a worrier." "Gossip is my weakness." "My dad was a drinker, and I guess I'll carry on the tradition." Stop that! These words create alliances with the devil. They grant him access to your spirit. It is not God's will that you live a defeated, marginalized, unhappy, and weary life. Turn a deaf ear to the old voices and make new choices. "The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; yes, I have a good inheritance" (Ps. 16:6). Live out of your inheritance, not your circumstance.Max Lucado Not Labeling Sayings By Max Lucado: Hang-ups and addictions do not have the last word. Today's problem is not necessarily tomorrow's
Labeling a child as mentally ill is stigmatization, not diagnosis. Giving a child a psychiatric drug is poisoning, not treatment.Thomas Szasz Not Labeling Sayings By Thomas Szasz: Labeling a child as mentally ill is stigmatization, not diagnosis. Giving a child a psychiatric
The baby went without a name for weeks. Mom said she wanted to study it first, the way she would the subject of a painting. We had a lot of arguments over what the name should be. I wanted to call her Rosita, after the prettiest girl in my class, but Mom said the name was too Mexican.
"I thought we weren't supposed to be prejudiced," I said.
"It's not being prejudiced," Mom said. "It's a matter of accuracy in labeling.
Jeannette Walls Not Labeling Sayings By Jeannette Walls: The baby went without a name for weeks. Mom said she wanted to study it
I was much crazier than I had imagined. Or maybe it was a bad idea to read DSM-IV when you're not a trained professional. Or maybe the American Psychiatric Association had a crazy desire to label all life a mental disorder.Jon Ronson Not Labeling Sayings By Jon Ronson: I was much crazier than I had imagined. Or maybe it was a bad idea
That assumption - that labeling and sorting children based on gender doesn't really matter as long as everyone is treated fairly - would hold true if children only paid attention to the more overt, obvious messages we adults send. If children only listened to our purposeful messages, parenting would be easy. Most (but not all) parents and teachers take great effort in treating their children fairly, regardless of gender. Parents don't need to say to their daughters, "You probably won't enjoy math" or say to their sons, "Real boys don't play with dolls." Most parents wouldn't dream of saying these blatant stereotypes to their kids. But research has shown that when we label (and sort and color-code) by gender, children do notice. And it matters - children are learning whether you mean to be teaching them or not.Christia Spears Brown Not Labeling Sayings By Christia Spears Brown: That assumption - that labeling and sorting children based on gender doesn't really matter as
In addition to labeling kids who learn differently as problematic, sometimes defective, most schools classify, track, and categorize students from very early ages. As an abundance of research studies confirm, these classifications tend to become self-perpetuating and self-confirming. My interviewees illuminate the ways in which grades, tests, and opportunities to learn are often arbitrary or related to class, race, and gender. In the supposed meritocracy of schooling, these markers and estimations have profound impact, not just structuring how we fit into the learning hierarchy of an individual classroom, but who we are who whom we believe we will become.Kirsten Olson Not Labeling Sayings By Kirsten Olson: In addition to labeling kids who learn differently as problematic, sometimes defective, most schools classify,
You Should take people as they are. Stop labeling them. You should get to know people before you start judging them. Get to know me before you
decide whether you like me or not.
Sarah Alderson Not Labeling Sayings By Sarah Alderson: You Should take people as they are. Stop labeling them. You should get to know
Dads. Do you not realize that your child needs to feel your skin on his? Do you not realize the incredible and powerful bond that skin on skin contact with your daughter will give you? Do you not understand the permanent mental connections that are made when you stroke your son's bare back or rub your daughter's bare tummy while you tell bedtime stories? And if any idiot says anything about that being inappropriate, you're gonna get kicked in the face, first by me, and then by every other good dad out there. Touching your child is your duty as a father.Dan Pearce Not Labeling Sayings By Dan Pearce: Dads. Do you not realize that your child needs to feel your skin on his?
If only, I feel now, if only I could be someone able to see all this as if he had no other relation with it than that of seeing it, someone able to observe everything as if he were an adult traveler newly arrived today on the surface of life! If only one had not learned, from birth onwards, to give certain accepted meanings to everything, but instead was able to see the meaning inherent in each thing rather than that imposed on it from without. If only one could know the human reality of the woman selling fish and go beyond just labeling her a fishwife and the known fact that she exists and sells fish. If only one could see the policeman as God sees him. If only one could notice everything for the first time, not apocalyptically, as if they were revelations of the Mystery, but directly as the flowerings of Reality.Fernando Pessoa Not Labeling Sayings By Fernando Pessoa: If only, I feel now, if only I could be someone able to see all
She tapped her chest. "No, I'm not a freak, okay, so could you stop pressuring me."
Rafael muttered something under his breath, throwing up his hands in surrender. "So what am I? What's Karhl, Jayani, my brother, and all the BaSatai? Are we all freaks? Just
because this human has some kind of fascination with labeling you, you believe in it. Be your own person, Armani, not what someone else says you are.

For something to become a work of art, a labeling process must take place that requires three participants: an artist who produces an apt object, a client or public, and a critic or connoisseur who mediates between the artist and the public to assure them of the artness of the thing. If I make a painting, it is not sufficient for the painting to be "art" that I consider it so, nor even that you, my friend and neighbor, admire it and hang it on your wall; it must be certified as art by competent authority and exhibited in the institutionally appropriate place, a gallery or museum.Wyatt MacGaffey Not Labeling Sayings By Wyatt MacGaffey: For something to become a work of art, a labeling process must take place that
It matters not whether you win the race or not but that you cross the finish line with a smile and a bit of a laugh. Stress does not come from having too much on your plate. Stress comes from labeling too many of those things as very important. Discussing religion, no matter how in depth the discussion, should never be confused with actually practicing that religion.Pat McBride Not Labeling Sayings By Pat McBride: It matters not whether you win the race or not but that you cross the
What I like way better than LGBT in terms of labeling sexuality actually is a scheme that comes to me from my friend Animal Prufrock wherein one is identified not by what they supposedly "are" but rather by what they are into. Which brings us to the terms hemosexual, shemosexual, and mosexual.Ani DiFranco Not Labeling Sayings By Ani DiFranco: What I like way better than LGBT in terms of labeling sexuality actually is a
