To sober up seems to many like making life "so serious," as if seriousness precluded joy, warmth, spontaneity and fun. But there can be a delusional, blind quality to non-sober festivities. To have our eyes open soberly with all our senses and memory intact allows some of the most rewarding, soul-nourishing, and long-lasting pleasures possible.Alexandra Katehakis Precluded Sayings By Alexandra Katehakis: To sober up seems to many like making life "so serious," as if seriousness precluded
The ability to overcome failure
to live through it and move on
is crucial. If we are not willing to face failure
if we don't have the skills to survive it
we have precluded any real creativity or risk. Failure may never become our friend, but if we are to do meaningful work, perhaps failure needs to be our companion.
John Hunter Precluded Sayings By John Hunter: The ability to overcome failureto live through it and move onis crucial. If we are
If Barack Obama had come up in a time when the drug war was being waged as intensely as it is now, we probably would never have heard of him. A single arrest could have precluded student loans, resulted in jail time, and completely ruined his life, posing a far greater threat to him than the drugs themselves did, including the risk of addiction to marijuana or cocaine.Carl Hart Precluded Sayings By Carl Hart: If Barack Obama had come up in a time when the drug war was being
After all, I do not believe that one must necessarily scrape bottom, as it were, in order to view his society subjectively. Rather than moving vertically downward, one may move horizontally outward toward a point of sufficient detachment where a modicum of creature comforts are not necessarily precluded.John Kennedy Toole Precluded Sayings By John Kennedy Toole: After all, I do not believe that one must necessarily scrape bottom, as it were,
At what point is someone precluded from availing themselves of the justification of self-defense because of their own poor judgment or bad behavior?Dan Gelber Precluded Sayings By Dan Gelber: At what point is someone precluded from availing themselves of the justification of self-defense because
And whenever they came back to his lips, these exquisite, funereal laments conjured up, in his mind, a place on the outskirts of a city, a mean and voiceless place where silently, in the distance, lines of men and women, wearied and bowed down by life, were disappearing into the twilight, while he himself, surfeited with bitterness and replete with disgust, felt himself alone, utterly alone, in the midst of a tearful Nature, overwhelmed by an inexpressible melancholy, by a relentless anguish, the mysterious intensity of which precluded all consolation, all pity, all repose.Joris-Karl Huysmans Precluded Sayings By Joris-Karl Huysmans: And whenever they came back to his lips, these exquisite, funereal laments conjured up, in
Deep in the chaotic regime, slight changes in structure almost always cause vast changes in behavior. Complex controllable behavior seems precluded.Stuart Kauffman Precluded Sayings By Stuart Kauffman: Deep in the chaotic regime, slight changes in structure almost always cause vast changes in
When I was a kid, we said that we were precluded from going to certain neighborhoods because of the color of our skin Now the neighborhoods are the neighborhoods of ideas, youre not supposed to be there because of the color of your skin.Clarence Thomas Precluded Sayings By Clarence Thomas: When I was a kid, we said that we were precluded from going to certain
Righteousness has never precluded adversity.M. Russell Ballard Precluded Sayings By M. Russell Ballard: Righteousness has never precluded adversity.
Privacy is a protection from the unreasonable use of state and corporate power. But that is, in a sense, a secondary thing. In the first instance, privacy is the statement in words of a simple understanding, which belongs to the instinctive world rather than the formal one, that some things are the province of those who experience them and not naturally open to the scrutiny of others: courtship and love, with their emotional nakedness; the simple moments of family life; the appalling rawness of grief. That the state and other systems are precluded from snooping on these things is important - it is a strong barrier between the formal world and the hearth, extended or not - but at root privacy is a simple understanding: not everything belongs to everyone.Nick Harkaway Precluded Sayings By Nick Harkaway: Privacy is a protection from the unreasonable use of state and corporate power. But that
If lawyers were to undertake no causes till they were sure they were just, a man might be precluded altogether from a trial of his claim, though, were it judicially examined, it might be found a very just claim.Samuel Johnson Precluded Sayings By Samuel Johnson: If lawyers were to undertake no causes till they were sure they were just, a
If I learned anything about her it was that she lived with a vehemence most of us never have the courage for." Banks tells me. "But there was something about her that precluded an ordinary existence. In some ways, I'm not surprised she's dead. A job, husband, kids, a beach house? That wasn't her. I can't explain why, except she was more like a force that whipped through life, defying logic, scaring you, even hurting you because she was everything you wanted to be, but you knew you'd never have the guts - and then she was gone. That was my experience with Ashley Cordova.Marisha Pessl Precluded Sayings By Marisha Pessl: If I learned anything about her it was that she lived with a vehemence most
If we are not willing to risk all, again, then we are precluded from intimacy.James Hollis Precluded Sayings By James Hollis: If we are not willing to risk all, again, then we are precluded from intimacy.
He to whom many objects of pursuit arise at the same time, will frequently hesitate between different desires till a rival has precluded him, or change his course as new attractions prevail, and harass himself without advancing.Samuel Johnson Precluded Sayings By Samuel Johnson: He to whom many objects of pursuit arise at the same time, will frequently hesitate
The things I wanted to do from a very early age - ie. get married and have children - precluded a lot of guys my own age from wanting to have anything to do with me.Talulah Riley Precluded Sayings By Talulah Riley: The things I wanted to do from a very early age - ie. get married
That stab in the heart she felt when she woke, and the panicky doubt that her life was in her grasp, not fraud or failure, not entirely - that was a brief misery and one she could set aside by putting the light on and reading for a while. She used to ask herself, What more could I wish? But she always distrusted that question, because she knew there were limits to her experience that precluded her knowing what there was to be wished.Marilynne Robinson Precluded Sayings By Marilynne Robinson: That stab in the heart she felt when she woke, and the panicky doubt that
The existence of God is neither precluded nor rendered improbable by the existence of evil. Of course, suffering and misfortune may nonetheless constitute a problem for the theist; but the problem is not that his beliefs are logically or probabilistically incompatible. The theist may find a religious problem in evil; in the presence of his own suffering or that of someone near to him he may find it difficult to maintain what he takes to be the proper attitude towards God. Faced with great personal suffering or misfortune, he may be tempted to rebel against God, to shake his fist in God's face, or even to give up belief in God altogether. But this is a problem of a different dimension. Such a
problem calls, not for philosophical enlightenment, but for pastoral care. The Free Will Defense, however, shows that the existence of God is compatible, both logically and probabilistically, with the existence of evil; thus it solves the main philosophical problem of evil.
Alvin Plantinga Precluded Sayings By Alvin Plantinga: The existence of God is neither precluded nor rendered improbable by the existence of evil.
At least I have precluded the possibility of peaking too early.George McGovern Precluded Sayings By George McGovern: At least I have precluded the possibility of peaking too early.
The authority of Plato and Aristotle, of Zeno and Epicurus, still reigned in the schools; and their systems, transmitted with blind deference from one generation of disciples to another, precluded every generous attempt to exercise the powers, or enlarge the limits, of the human mind.Edward Gibbon Precluded Sayings By Edward Gibbon: The authority of Plato and Aristotle, of Zeno and Epicurus, still reigned in the schools;
Design is all about desire, but strangely this desire seems almost subject-less today, or at least lack-less; that is, design seems to advance a new kind of narcissism, one that is all image and no interiority - an apotheosis of the subject that is also its disappearance. Poor little rich man: he is 'precluded from all fuure living and striving, developing and desiring' in the neo-Art Nouveau world of total design and Internet plenitude.Hal Foster Precluded Sayings By Hal Foster: Design is all about desire, but strangely this desire seems almost subject-less today, or at
My unhappiness precluded all else; unhappiness is a kind of narcissism, in which nothing that does not resonate with your unhappiness can interest you.Caroline Kettlewell Precluded Sayings By Caroline Kettlewell: My unhappiness precluded all else; unhappiness is a kind of narcissism, in which nothing that
Historically speaking, the presence of wheels in Unix has never precluded their reinvention.Larry Wall Precluded Sayings By Larry Wall: Historically speaking, the presence of wheels in Unix has never precluded their reinvention.
Dr. White quotes with great confidence and absolute assurance a Papal decree issued in the year 1300 by Pope Boniface VIII., which forbade the mutilation of the human body and consequently hampered all possibility of progress in anatomy for {30} several important centuries in the history of modern science. Indeed, this supposed Papal prohibition of dissection is definitely stated to have precluded all opportunity for the proper acquisition of anatomical knowledge until the first half of the sixteenth century, when the Golden Age of modern anatomy set in. This date being coincident with the spread of the movement known as the Protestant Reformation, many people at once conclude that somehow the liberality of spirit that then came into the world, and is supposed at least to have put an end to all intolerance,James Joseph Walsh Precluded Sayings By James Joseph Walsh: Dr. White quotes with great confidence and absolute assurance a Papal decree issued in the
It is a key fact about American policy in Vietnam that the withdrawel of American troops was built into it from the start. None of the presidents who waged war in Vietnam contemplated an open-ended campaign; all promised the public that American troops would be able to leave in the not-too-remote future. The promise of withdrawel precluded a policy of occupation of the traditional colonial sort, in which a great power simply imposes its will on a small one indefinitely.Jonathan Schell Precluded Sayings By Jonathan Schell: It is a key fact about American policy in Vietnam that the withdrawel of American
Alma had grown as tall as a man by now, with broad shoulders ... This need not have necessarily precluded her from marriage. Some men liked a larger woman, who promised a stronger disposition, and Alma, it could be argued, had a handsome profile
at least from her left side. She certainly had a fine, friendly nature. Yet she was missing some invisible, essential ingredient, and so, despite all the frank eroticism that lay hidden within her body, her presence in a room did not kindle ideas of ardor in any man.
It did not help that Alma herself believed she was unlovely. She believed this only because she had been told it so many times, and in so many different ways. Most recently, the news of her homeliness had come straight from her father ...
Elizabeth Gilbert Precluded Sayings By Elizabeth Gilbert: Alma had grown as tall as a man by now, with broad shoulders ... This
What blinds us, or makes historical progress very difficult, is our lack of awareness that our beliefs have grown obsolete and should be put aside ... This is I think much of the problem of the modern dilemma: Direct experience has been discounted, and in its place all kinds of belief systems have been erected ... If you believe something, you are automatically precluded from believing its opposite; which means that a degree of your human freedom has been forfeited in the act of committing yourself to this belief.Terence McKenna Precluded Sayings By Terence McKenna: What blinds us, or makes historical progress very difficult, is our lack of awareness that
THE thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge. You, who so well know the nature of my soul, will not suppose, however, that gave utterance to a threat. At length I would be avenged; this was a point definitely, settled
but the very definitiveness with which it was resolved precluded the idea of risk. I must not only punish but punish with impunity. A wrong is unredressed when retribution overtakes its redresser. It is equally unredressed when the avenger fails to make himself felt as such to him who has done the wrong.
Edgar Allan Poe Precluded Sayings By Edgar Allan Poe: THE thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he
It occurred to me that the business of surviving precluded a great many things, exploring and falling in love not least among them.Ransom Riggs Precluded Sayings By Ransom Riggs: It occurred to me that the business of surviving precluded a great many things, exploring

The country he had left thirty years ago had been a realistic place. There were political realities there, then and now, that precluded blind faith, that discouraged one from thinking that everything, always, would work out fairly and equitably. But he had come to believe such things in the United States. Things had worked out. Difficulties had been overcome. He had worked hard and achieved success. The machinery of government functioned.Dave Eggers Precluded Sayings By Dave Eggers: The country he had left thirty years ago had been a realistic place. There were
People were concerned about national security, and that precluded us from having the opportunity to break through on the issues that we cared most about - the economy, education and health care.Tom Daschle Precluded Sayings By Tom Daschle: People were concerned about national security, and that precluded us from having the opportunity to
I don't see how Clary is something we have in common,' Simon said, although he did. Nevertheless, this wasn't a conversation he particularly wanted to have with Jace now, or, in fact, ever. Wasn't there some sort of manly code that precluded discussions like this
discussions about feelings?
Cassandra Clare Precluded Sayings By Cassandra Clare: I don't see how Clary is something we have in common,' Simon said, although he
...they had succumbed to an impersonal and anonymous mode of consciousness which precluded personal feeling and which was devoid of a secure sense of self-identity. Everything tended to be seen in 'abstract' terms, as theoretical possibilities which could be contemplated and compared but to the concrete realization of which people were unwilling to commit themselves. If they attended to their own attitudes or emotions it was through a thick haze of pseudo-scientific expressions or cliche-ridden phrases which they had picked up from books or newspapers rather than in the direct light of their own inner experience. Living had become a matter of knowing rather than doing; accumulating information and learning things by rote as opposed to taking decisions that bore the stamp of individual passion or conviction.Patrick L. Gardiner Precluded Sayings By Patrick L. Gardiner: ...they had succumbed to an impersonal and anonymous mode of consciousness which precluded personal feeling
The Legislature of Lower Canada, consisting chiefly of Roman Catholics, could hardly be expected to support a church which they were taught to consider heretical, and in Upper Canada the scanty means at the disposal of the Government, precluded all hope.John Strachan Precluded Sayings By John Strachan: The Legislature of Lower Canada, consisting chiefly of Roman Catholics, could hardly be expected to
