In spite of all evidence that life is discontinuous, a valley of rifts, and that random chance plays a great part in our fates, we go on believing in the continuity of things, in causation and meaning. But we live on a broken mirror, and fresh cracks appear in its surface every day.Salman Rushdie Random Things In Life Sayings By Salman Rushdie: In spite of all evidence that life is discontinuous, a valley of rifts, and that
Life is fragmentary, and the pattern that creativity can offer is not one that is imposed, not something rigid, but rather something which can reveal the intrinsic patterns of that fragmentation. Things are in a perpetual dance, but there is an order. It's not really random at all.Jeanette Winterson Random Things In Life Sayings By Jeanette Winterson: Life is fragmentary, and the pattern that creativity can offer is not one that is
Here's how I feel: People take one another for granted. Like, I'd just hang out with Ingrid in all these random places
in her room or at school or just on a sidewalk somewhere. And the whole time we'd tell eachother things, just say our thoughts outloud. Maybe that would have been boring to some people, but it was never boring to us. I never realized what a big deal that was. How amazing it is to find someone who wants to hear about all the things that go on in your head. You just think that things will stay the way they are. You never look up, in a moment that feels like every other moment of your life, and think, "Soon this will be over." But I understand more now. About how life works.
Nina LaCour Random Things In Life Sayings By Nina LaCour: Here's how I feel: People take one another for granted. Like, I'd just hang out
I believe life is an intelligent thing: that things aren't random.Steve Jobs Random Things In Life Sayings By Steve Jobs: I believe life is an intelligent thing: that things aren't random.
I wondered if my life was going to be one immersion after another, a great march of shallow, unpopular popular culture infatuations that don't really last and don't really mean anything. Sometimes I even think maybe my deepest obsessions are just random manifestations of my loneliness or isolation. Maybe I infuse ordinary experience with a kind of sacred aura to mitigate the spiritual vapidity of my life ... no, it is beautiful to be enraptured. To be enthralled by something, anything. And it isn't random. It speaks to you for a reason. If you wanted to, you could look at it that way, and you might find you aren't wasting your life. You are discovering things about yourself and the world, even if it is just what you find beautiful, right now, this second.Dana Spiotta Random Things In Life Sayings By Dana Spiotta: I wondered if my life was going to be one immersion after another, a great
Simply, this is what she believed: she believed that the universe showed each of us certain things, that it made certain things open.
Many people lived a peace life with nothing ever happening to them. But into some families other things fell. Some families were afflicted with random tragedies - car accidents, plane accidents, hang gliding accidents, bus crashes, knifing, drownings, scarves getting caught under the wheels of their Rolls Royces, breaking their necks.
Paullina Simons Random Things In Life Sayings By Paullina Simons: Simply, this is what she believed: she believed that the universe showed each of us
The gift and the presence of the Holy Spirit is the greatest and most wonderful thing which we can experience - we ourselves, the human community, all living things and this earth. For with the Holy Spirit it is not just one random spirit that is present, among all the many good and evil spirits that there are. It is God himself, the creative and life-giving, redeeming and saving God. Where the Holy Spirit is present, God is present in a special way, and we experience God through our lives, which become wholly living from within. We experience whole, full, healed and redeemed life, experience it with all our senses. We feel and taste, we touch and see our life in God and God in our life.Jurgen Moltmann Random Things In Life Sayings By Jurgen Moltmann: The gift and the presence of the Holy Spirit is the greatest and most wonderful
Unoka went into an inner room and soon returned with a small wooden disc containing a kola nut, some alligator pepper and a lump of white chalk.
"I have kola," he announced when he sat down, and passed the disc over to his guest.
"Thank you. He who brings kola brings life. But I think you ought to break it," replied Okoye passing back the disc.
"No, it is for you, I think," and they argued like this for a few moments before Unoka accepted the honor of breaking the kola. Okoye, meanwhile, took the lump of chalk, drew some lines on the floor, and then painted his big toe.
Chinua Achebe Random Things In Life Sayings By Chinua Achebe: Unoka went into an inner room and soon returned with a small wooden disc containing
If it's all connected, I don't like it," I muttered. "All this is too apocalyptic," I said. "I can live with the notion that this world is a Savage Garden, that things are born and die for random reasons, that suffering is irrelevant to the great brutal cycle of life. I can live with all that. But I don't think I can live with great overarching connectionsAnne Rice Random Things In Life Sayings By Anne Rice: If it's all connected, I don't like it," I muttered. "All this is too apocalyptic,"
What if you believed that everything in life was like a prize? What if you thought of the world as a big random drawing, and you were always winning things, the world offering them up with a big grin, like an emcee's: Here you go, Hollis. Here is a motorcycle. Here is a little boy who loves you. Here is a weird experience, here is something bad that you should mull over because it will make you a better person. What if you could think that life was this free vacation you'd won, and you won just because you happened to be alive?Dan Chaon Random Things In Life Sayings By Dan Chaon: What if you believed that everything in life was like a prize? What if you
I go out on the porch and gaze up at the stars twinkling above, the random scattering of millions of stars. Even in a planetarium you wouldn't find as many. Some of them really look big and distinct, like if you reached your hand out intently you could touch them. The whole thing is breathtaking. Not just beautiful though
the stars like the trees in the forest, alive and breathing. And they're watching me. What I've done up till now, what I'm going to do
they know it all. Nothing gets past their watchful eyes. As I sit there under the shining night sky, again a violent fear takes hold of me. My heart's pounding a mile a minute, and I can barely breathe. All these millions of stars looking down on me, and I've never given them more than a passing thought before. Bot just stars
how many other things haven't I noticed in the world, things I know nothing about? I suddenly feel helpless, completely powerless. And I know I'll never outrun that awful feeling. (135)
Haruki Murakami Random Things In Life Sayings By Haruki Murakami: I go out on the porch and gaze up at the stars twinkling above, the
Despite having known him for almost a year, there were a lot of things I still didn't know about Zachary Goode. Like how soap and shampoo could smell so much better on him than anyone else. Like where he went when he wasn't mysteriously showing up at random (and frequently dangerous) points in my life. And, most of all, I didn't know how, when he mentioned the jacket, he made me think about the sweet, romantic part of the night last November when he'd given it to me, and not the terrible, bloody, international-terrorists-are-trying-to-kidnap-me part that came right afterAlly Carter Random Things In Life Sayings By Ally Carter: Despite having known him for almost a year, there were a lot of things I
There is a fundamental spiritual quality to gratitude that transcends religious traditions. Gratitude is a universal human experience that can seem to be either a random occurrence of grace or a chosen attitude to create a better experience of life; in many ways it contains elements of both. Grateful people sense that they are not separated from others or from God; this recognition of unity with all things brings a deep sense of gratefulness, whether we are religious or not.Angeles Arrien Random Things In Life Sayings By Angeles Arrien: There is a fundamental spiritual quality to gratitude that transcends religious traditions. Gratitude is a
[E]verything is fiction. When you tell yourself the story of your life, the story of your day, you edit and rewrite and weave a narrative out of a collection of random experiences and events. Your conversations are fiction. Your friends and loved ones - they are characters you have created. And your arguments with them are like meetings with an editor - please, they beseech you, you beseech them, rewrite me. You have a perception of the way things are, and you impose it on your memory, and in this way you think, in the same way that I think, that you are living something that is describable. When of course, what we actually live, what we actually experience - with our senses and our nerves - is a vast, absurd, beautiful, ridiculous chaos.Keith Ridgway Random Things In Life Sayings By Keith Ridgway: [E]verything is fiction. When you tell yourself the story of your life, the story of
Rings and magazines; keychains and umbrellas; hats and glasses; rattles and radios. They looked like different things, but Ralph thought they were really all the same thing: the faint, sorrowing voices of people who had found themselves written out of the script in the middle of the second act while they were still learning their lines for the third, people who had been unceremoniously hauled off before their work was done or their obligations fulfilled, people whose only crime had been to be born in the Random ... and to have caught the eye of the madman with the rusty scalpel.Stephen King Random Things In Life Sayings By Stephen King: Rings and magazines; keychains and umbrellas; hats and glasses; rattles and radios. They looked like
You learn in life that a lot of things are the result of effort, but some things, in terms of scale, are random.Mark Cuban Random Things In Life Sayings By Mark Cuban: You learn in life that a lot of things are the result of effort, but
It was one of those strange moments that came to him rarely, but never left. A moment that stamped itself on heart and brain, instantly recallable in every detail, for all of his life. There was no telling what made these moments different from any other, though he knew them when they came. He had seen sights more gruesome and more beautiful by far, and been left with no more than a fleeting muddle of their memory. But these
the still moments, as he called them to himself
they came with no warning, to print a random image of the most common things inside his brain, indelible.
Diana Gabaldon Random Things In Life Sayings By Diana Gabaldon: It was one of those strange moments that came to him rarely, but never left.
God does not demand that we give up our personal dignity, that we throw in our lot with random people, that we lose ourselves and turn from all that is not him. God needs nothing, asks nothing, and demands nothing, like the stars. It is a life with God which demands these things.Annie Dillard Random Things In Life Sayings By Annie Dillard: God does not demand that we give up our personal dignity, that we throw in
Was I wilfully blind when I married Michael? Of course I was. I knew about his heart condition - everyone did. But I fell in love with him and decided it didn't matter. We were going to live for ever, somehow. Now I know that the fact that we had the same initials, were both expatriates, had gone to the same university, and were of medium build made the relationship highly determined. But I might have done the research and discovered his short life expectancy or talked to psychologists about the pain of grieving or read books about the sadness of widowhood. But I didn't do any of those things. I looked away from those sad certainties and pretended that they weren't there.
Love is blind, not, as in mythology, because Cupid's arrows are random but because, once struck by them, we are left blind. When we love someone, we see them as smarter, wittier, prettier, stronger than anyone else sees them.
Margaret Heffernan Random Things In Life Sayings By Margaret Heffernan: Was I wilfully blind when I married Michael? Of course I was. I knew about
A dictionary resembles the world more than a novel does, because the world is not a coherent sequence of actions but a constellation of things perceived. It is looked at, unrelated things congregate, and geographic proximity gives them meaning. If events follow each other, they are believed to be a story. But in a dictionary, time doesn't exist: ABC is neither more nor less chronological than BCA. To portray your life in order would be absurd: I remember you at random. My brain resurrects you through stochastic details, like picking marbles out of a bag.Edouard Leve Random Things In Life Sayings By Edouard Leve: A dictionary resembles the world more than a novel does, because the world is not
There was no sign of life round the domed emplacement of the Moonraker, and the concrete, already beginning to shimmer in the early morning sun, stretched emptily away towards Deal. It looked like a newly laid aerodome or rather, he thought, with its three disparate concrete 'things', the beehive dome,the flat-iron blast-wall, and the distant cube of the firing point, each casting black pools of shadow towards him in the early sun, like a Dali desert landscape in which three objets trouves reposed at carefully calculated random.Ian Fleming Random Things In Life Sayings By Ian Fleming: There was no sign of life round the domed emplacement of the Moonraker, and the
Life would be a great deal easier if dead things had the decency to remain dead.Doug MacLeod Random Things In Life Sayings By Doug MacLeod: Life would be a great deal easier if dead things had the decency to remain
I have been thinking over what she said about knowing as distinct from remembering. Perhaps all it amounts to is that as we talked and I trotted out these little bits of information I gave the impression, common in elderly people, not only of having a long full life behind me that I could dip into more or less at random for the benefit of a younger listener, but also of being undisturbed by any doubts about the meaning and value of that life and the opinions I'd formed while leading it; although that suggests knowingness, and when she said, 'What a lot you know' she made it sound like a state of grace, one that she envied me in the mistaken belief that I was in it, while she was not and didn't understand how, things being as she finds them, one ever achieved it.Paul Scott Random Things In Life Sayings By Paul Scott: I have been thinking over what she said about knowing as distinct from remembering. Perhaps
They say marry the person with whom you are the closest to, the guy with whom you can share your 3 am thoughts with, sitting on a rooftop and discussing random things like why cavemen were hirsute or why the earth isn't a square. The genie who knows what you want before you open your mouth. The angel who reads your mind before you can articulate your thoughts. The friend you can laugh and cry with. The brother whose arms are safer than any amount of security and protection the outside world can provide you. The parent that will support you through thick and thin, no matter what. The soul whose love for them in the river of your heart will never dilute, even when the currents get rough, and the waters, dark. The fellow who would tell you that he loves you every night and spend the day proving it through little gestures that speak much louder than any words of love. The person with whom you can hold hands when you turn eighty and announce to the world- 'we made it!Faraaz Kazi Random Things In Life Sayings By Faraaz Kazi: They say marry the person with whom you are the closest to, the guy with
I lived willy-nilly. Without any sense of being part of the order of things. I lived by fragments, pieces, scraps, in the moment, at random, from incident to incident, as if buffeted by ebb and flow. Oftentimes I had the impression that someone had torn the majority of pages out of the book of my life, because they were empty, or because they belonged not to me but to someone else's life.Wieslaw Mysliwski Random Things In Life Sayings By Wieslaw Mysliwski: I lived willy-nilly. Without any sense of being part of the order of things. I
My funeral," the Blue Man said. "Look at the mourners. Some did not even know me well, yet they came. Why? Did you ever wonder? Why people gather when others die? Why people feel they should?
"It is because the human spirit knows, deep down, that all lives intersect. That death doesn't just take someone, it misses someone else, and in the small distance between being taken and being missed, lives are changed.
"You say you should have died instead of me. But during my time on earth, people died instead of me, too. It happens every day. When lightning strikes a minute after you are gone, or an airplane crashes that you might have been on. When your colleague falls ill and you do not. We think such things are random. But there is a balance to it all. One withers, another grows. Birth and death are part of a whole.
"It is why we are drawn to babies ... " He turned to the mourners. "And to funerals.
Mitch Albom Random Things In Life Sayings By Mitch Albom: My funeral," the Blue Man said. "Look at the mourners. Some did not even know
Isn't it weird how we make big decisions in life based on the strangest, most random things?Mhairi McFarlane Random Things In Life Sayings By Mhairi McFarlane: Isn't it weird how we make big decisions in life based on the strangest, most
I don't want to be one of those people that's constantly promoting myself on Twitter. I think the fun thing about Twitter is being able to share all the little random things that happen in my life.Bridgit Mendler Random Things In Life Sayings By Bridgit Mendler: I don't want to be one of those people that's constantly promoting myself on Twitter.
The concept of randomness and coincidence will be obsolete when people can finally define a formulation of patterned interaction between all things within the universe.Toba Beta Random Things In Life Sayings By Toba Beta: The concept of randomness and coincidence will be obsolete when people can finally define a
James: I think people pretty much determine their fates. I think people choose their lives.
Lucy: I don't know. I think sometimes things happen to people that are beyond their control. Things that they don't want to happen.
James: I know what you're saying. Sometimes random shit happens, but for the most part, people are where they are in life because they chose to be there.
Kristen Tracy Random Things In Life Sayings By Kristen Tracy: James: I think people pretty much determine their fates. I think people choose their lives.Lucy:
I was raised to believe that God has a plan for everyone and that seemingly random twists of fate are all a part of His plan. My mother - a small woman with auburn hair and a sense of optimism that ran as deep as the cosmos - told me that everything in life happened for a purpose. She said all things were part of God's Plan, even the most disheartening setbacks, and in the end, everything worked out for the best. If something went wrong, she said, you didn't let it get you down: You stepped away from it, stepped over it, and moved on. Later on, she added, something good will happen and you'll find yourself thinking - If I hadn't had that problem back then, then this better thing that did happen wouldn't have happened to me.Ronald Reagan Random Things In Life Sayings By Ronald Reagan: I was raised to believe that God has a plan for everyone and that seemingly
We are so used to the notion of our own inevitability as life's dominant species that it is hard to grasp that we are here only because of timely extraterrestrial bangs and other random flukes. The one thing we have in common with all other living things is that for nearly four billions years our ancestors have managed to slip through a series of closing doors every time we needed them to.Bill Bryson Random Things In Life Sayings By Bill Bryson: We are so used to the notion of our own inevitability as life's dominant species
People just want to believe. Otherwise they would have to admit that life is just a random series of good and bad things that happen until one day you die.Nicola Yoon Random Things In Life Sayings By Nicola Yoon: People just want to believe. Otherwise they would have to admit that life is just
All this stuff is so mind-blowing to me that I get to do in my life. Throwing the first pitch out at the White Sox game on a random Wednesday? Like who am I? How did I get this life? I'm glad I'm not jaded, and little kids are the least jaded people in the entire world, so it's fun to be around people that still find wonder in how cool things are.Jonah Hill Random Things In Life Sayings By Jonah Hill: All this stuff is so mind-blowing to me that I get to do in my
One of the most spiritual things you can do is embrace your humanity. Connect with those around you today. Say, "I love you", "I'm sorry", "I appreciate you", "I'm proud of you" ... whatever you're feeling. Send random texts, write a cute note, embrace your truth and share it ... cause a smile today for someone else ... and give plenty of hugs.Steve Maraboli Random Things In Life Sayings By Steve Maraboli: One of the most spiritual things you can do is embrace your humanity. Connect with
With all of those events, I didn't realize I was seeing something amazing for the first and last time. And I'm saying that those things, those random, crazy surprises that have nothing to do with life decisions or your past or your future, might be worth sticking around for.Anne Frasier Random Things In Life Sayings By Anne Frasier: With all of those events, I didn't realize I was seeing something amazing for the
