Imagine being just strong enough to remember what life was like, feeling things, your heartbeat, the world around you. And imagine you couldn't have it anymore, couldn't even properly remember it, but there was just enough that some deep part of you knew what you were missing. Wouldn't you do anything to get it back, if it was right there for the taking? Wouldn't you be willing to kill for it?Apollo Blake Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Apollo Blake: Imagine being just strong enough to remember what life was like, feeling things, your heartbeat,
In Buddhism, we say reincarnation is the conscious taking of rebirth by a Bodhisattva, or by a high being, whereas rebirth, is what most people do. Rebirth is an involuntary process where they seek traction by finding a new body after their subtle mind loses the old one. There are two things commonly said about this. One- there is no evidence for it and two- if there is evidence, what's the mechanism which carries the consciousness from one life to another.Robert Thurman Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Robert Thurman: In Buddhism, we say reincarnation is the conscious taking of rebirth by a Bodhisattva, or
We sort of have given up on the idea of taking any sort of personal responsibility for what we see. I don't understand it at all. There are many things that I won't let my kids watch.Tim Daly Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Tim Daly: We sort of have given up on the idea of taking any sort of personal
When things are taking their ordinary course, it is hard to remember what matters. There are so many things you would never think to tell anyone. And I believe they may be the things that mean most to you, and that even your own child would have to know in order to know you well at all.Marilynne Robinson Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Marilynne Robinson: When things are taking their ordinary course, it is hard to remember what matters. There
Death is, perhaps, the only certainty in life that still manages to catch us off guard. And while browsing a headstone catalog (yes, they really have such a thing) over a glass of wine might not sound like a recipe for the perfect date night, taking time to address the small things (Does your wife know what all the keys on your key ring are for? Does your husband know how to make a pot of coffee, or even where you keep the filters?) and even the not-so-small things can make a big difference in how you will cope, should you one day find yourself in my shoes - dressed in black andAnonymous Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Anonymous: Death is, perhaps, the only certainty in life that still manages to catch us off
Imagine taking a test knowing the answer. While we know that history flows forward, it is difficult to realize that we envision it backward. Why is it so? We will discuss the point in Chapter 11 but here is a possible explanation: Our minds are not quite designed to understand how the world works, but, rather, to get out of trouble rapidly and have progeny. If they were made for us to understand things, then we would have a machine in it that would run the past history as in a VCR, with a correct chronology, and it would slow us down so much that we would have trouble operating. Psychologists call this overestimation of what one knew at the time of the event due to subsequent information the hindsight bias, the "I knew it all along" effect.Nassim Nicholas Taleb Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Nassim Nicholas Taleb: Imagine taking a test knowing the answer. While we know that history flows forward, it
The reason the middle class had it so good was because they expected things to be better. They wouldn't settle for less than they were worth. They'd just get into their shiny cars and go where they were appreciated. Poor people, on the other hand, were used to just taking what was given to them and being grateful for it.Karin Slaughter Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Karin Slaughter: The reason the middle class had it so good was because they expected things to
Lots of people use good character and moral standing as a brand name. They know it's what people like, they want people to like them, so they wear it as one would wear a quality brand shirt. Putting it on in the morning and taking it off at the end of the day. Saying all the things they know people want to hear. If they were the very last person on Earth, there would be no reason for them to be of good character, because nobody would see it.C. JoyBell C. Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By C. JoyBell C.: Lots of people use good character and moral standing as a brand name. They know
I think it was a realization of this cancer, an understanding of the broader implications of what cancer is. The greed, the ravaging of lands and seas for profit, the taking of things that don't belong to us; what we've done to the environment in this fast-paced, careless hunger. I think all of that was happening in my body.Eve Ensler Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Eve Ensler: I think it was a realization of this cancer, an understanding of the broader implications
We are taught to fear anything that can bring us closer to death - to keep us from taking huge leaps that involve risk. The only thing you should fear in this lifetime is not taking risks while you are living. I do not mean to go jump off a bridge. I mean, to go all out to reach your dreams, to dare to do things you typically would not do out of fear. Pain has a threshold and so does death. Fear neither, and never fear what has no right to be feared.Suzy Kassem Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Suzy Kassem: We are taught to fear anything that can bring us closer to death - to
Say something to it, he said.

As I looked at the baby, I felt nothing taking shape in mind or mouth. I had no idea what the sort of things were that somebody would say to a baby. I had no idea why anyone would say anything to a baby. I held it carefully, as one would a sack of apples. And then, with him watching me, nodding encouragingly, I began to say to it, for lack of anything else to say, all the words I had ever known, in order.
Alexandra Kleeman Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Alexandra Kleeman: Say something to it, he said.As I looked at the baby, I felt nothing taking
For me, the reason I keep working out and want to get bigger and focus on staying fit is because when you do fall it's easier to tighten up and not get hurt. I also wrestle, and that helps me a lot with taking a fall. A lot of what I do at the end of they day are things that will help me to not get hurt.Ryan Sheckler Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Ryan Sheckler: For me, the reason I keep working out and want to get bigger and focus
Did I tell you what happened at the play? We were at the back of the theatre, standing there in the dark, when all of a sudden I feel one of 'em tug at my sleeve, whispers, "Trudy look!" I said, "Yeah, goosebumps. You definitely got goosebumps. You like the play that much?" They said it wasn't the play that gave 'em goosebumps, it was the audience!
I'd forgot to tell them to watch the play; they'd been watching the audience! Yeah, to see a group of people sitting together in the dark, laughing and crying at the same things ... well that just knocked 'em out! They said, "Trudy, the play was soup, the audience, art."
So they're taking goosbumps back with 'em into space. Goosebumps! Quite a souvenir. I like to think of them out there in the dark, watching us. Sometimes we'll do something and they'll laugh. Sometimes we'll do something and they'll cry. And maybe, one day we'll do something so magnificent, the whole universe will get goosebumps.
Jane Wagner Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Jane Wagner: Did I tell you what happened at the play? We were at the back of
I'm gathering Kylie thinks that all it takes to capture an image is to point and shoot. That's what everyone thinks. But there's a lot more to it. It's taken me years to frame things correctly. People assume you can't take good pictures on an iPhone, but they're wrong. Some of my best shots are on the phone.They're raw and simple, and most of the time no one knows you're taking a picture. It's much better than the thousand-dollar Nikon my dad got me for Christmas. I don't think I've used it in months.Valerie Thomas Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Valerie Thomas: I'm gathering Kylie thinks that all it takes to capture an image is to point
When I use the word rebel for the artist, I do not refer to revolutionary or to such things as taking over the dean's office; that is a different matter. Artists are generally soft-spoken persons who are concerned with their inner visions and images. But that is precisely what makes them feared by any coercive society. For they are the bearers of the human being's age-old capacity to be insurgent.Rollo May Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Rollo May: When I use the word rebel for the artist, I do not refer to revolutionary
Life is about taking what you want and giving even more. Not because you think you should, because you want to. Love isn't easy because life isn't easy. You have to fight for the things you want. Sometimes you win and sometimes you wish you lost insteadRachel Robinson Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Rachel Robinson: Life is about taking what you want and giving even more. Not because you think
In fact, the messages actually seemed to increase drug use. Kids aged twelve and a half to eighteen who saw the ads were actually more likely to smoke marijuana. Why? Because it made drug use more public. Think about observability and social proof. Before seeing the message, some kids might never have thought about taking drugs. Others might have considered it but have been wary about doing the wrong thing. But anti-drug ads often say two things simultaneously. They say that drugs are bad, but they also say that other people are doing them. And as we've discussed throughout this chapter, the more others seem to be doing something, the more likely people are to think that thing is right or normal and what they should be doing as well.Jonah Berger Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Jonah Berger: In fact, the messages actually seemed to increase drug use. Kids aged twelve and a
I mean you can go wherever you want with it really. No matter what story you're telling you're always representing some reality. You are always representing human beings, their fears, their shortcomings, their braveries, their doubts, their loves, their abilities, their brilliance and those things inevitably lead to bigger political systems, foreign policy and crime and religion. It's an action film. We are not taking a stance about big government.Colin Farrell Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Colin Farrell: I mean you can go wherever you want with it really. No matter what story
The actions, thoughts, and words of each of us are important. All of us together are making the world. So we have to ask ourselves: How am I living? What kind of actions am I taking? Am I a force for good in the world or am I just another person doing nothing to help and therefore making things worse?Norman Fischer Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Norman Fischer: The actions, thoughts, and words of each of us are important. All of us together
Mrs. Cadwallader said, privately, 'You will certainly go mad in that house alone, my dear. You will see visions. We have all got to exert ourselves a little to keep sane, and call things by the same names as other people call them by. To be sure, for younger sons and women who have no money, it is a sort of provision to go mad: they are taken care of then. But you must not run into that. I daresay you are a little bored here with our good dowager; but think what a bore you might become yourself to your fellow-creatures if you were always playing tragedy queen and taking things sublimely. Sitting alone in that library at Lowick you may fancy yourself ruling the weather; you must get a few people round you who wouldn't believe you if you told them. That is a good lowering medicine.George Eliot Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By George Eliot: Mrs. Cadwallader said, privately, 'You will certainly go mad in that house alone, my dear.
Standing in the middle of the cellar with a sickened look on his face, Alric said, "I can't believe I'm being subjected to this."

"Consider it a vacation," Hadrian suggested. "For at least one day you get to pretend you are nobody, a common peasant, the son of a blacksmith perhaps."

"No," Royce said, preparing his own sleeping space but keeping his boots on. "They might expect him to know things like how to use a hammer. And look at his hands. Anyone could tell he was lying."

"Most people have jobs that require the use of their hands, Royce," Hadrian pointed out. He spread his cloak over himself and turned on his side. "What could a common peasant do that monks wouldn't know the first thing about and wouldn't cause calluses?"

"He could be a thief or a whore."

They both looked at the prince, who cringed at his prospects. "I'm taking the cot," Alric said.
Michael J. Sullivan Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Michael J. Sullivan: Standing in the middle of the cellar with a sickened look on his face, Alric
Anyone who'd stop feeling up or finger banging a woman in favour of taking a fucking phone call is an inconsiderate asshole you shouldn't be opening your legs for."
"I'm seeing that now."
"I'm serious, Lydia."
I studied the tabletop, needing a moment to pull myself together. "How long have we known each other? What, half an hour, an hour?"
"Ah." Turning in his seat, he checked out an old wooden clock on the kitchen wall. "Yeah. about that."
"Are you aware that most people wait a little longer before discussing the rules of etiquette in regards to finger banging? Who they should and shouldn't open their legs for? Things like that."
"That so?"
"It is."
"Well, fuck." He sat back, outright grinning at me.
Kylie Scott Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Kylie Scott: Anyone who'd stop feeling up or finger banging a woman in favour of taking a
After I finished 'E.R.', I wanted to concentrate on re-examining what kind of actress I am and taking time for real-life things.Linda Cardellini Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Linda Cardellini: After I finished 'E.R.', I wanted to concentrate on re-examining what kind of actress I
All of this highlights one of the most challenging obstacles that prevents teams from taking the time to work on how they work together: adrenaline addiction. Many if not most of the executives and managers I know have become so hooked on the rush of urgent demands and out-of-control schedules that the prospect of slowing down to review, think, talk, and develop themselves is too anxiety-inducing to consider. Of course, this is exactly what they need, which is what addiction is all about - doing things that are bad for you even when confronted with evidence that they are, well, bad for you.Patrick Lencioni Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Patrick Lencioni: All of this highlights one of the most challenging obstacles that prevents teams from taking
Soon, what was tedious was everything. 'Beautiful things, they're so tedious! Paintings, they're enough to drive you mad ... How right you are, it's so tedious, writing letters!' In the end it was life itself that she declared to us was a bore, without one quite knowing from where she was taking her term of comparison.Marcel Proust Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Marcel Proust: Soon, what was tedious was everything. 'Beautiful things, they're so tedious! Paintings, they're enough to
It was all about taking the leap of faith. It said that the fear that stops us from doing what we really want, is often not based on reality. We shape our fears in our heads, but things are so much easier than we think.Effrosyni Moschoudi Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Effrosyni Moschoudi: It was all about taking the leap of faith. It said that the fear that
When she left for a third time and returned with a giant box, I started to get irate. "What is this?" I demanded, taking it from her. It felt like it had bricks in it.
"Grandmother needs you to carry some things," Paul told me.
"Yes," I said through gritted teeth. "I sort of figured that out fifty pounds ago.
Richelle Mead Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Richelle Mead: When she left for a third time and returned with a giant box, I started
Happiness was different in childhood. It was so much then a matter simply of accumulation, of taking things - new experiences, new emotions - and applying them like so many polished tiles to what would someday be the marvellously finished pavilion of the self.John Banville Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By John Banville: Happiness was different in childhood. It was so much then a matter simply of accumulation,
In fact, we will have to give up taking things for granted, even the apparently simple things. We have to learn to understand nature and not merely to observe it and endure what it imposes on us. Stupidity, from being an amiable individual defect, has become a social crime.John Desmond Bernal Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By John Desmond Bernal: In fact, we will have to give up taking things for granted, even the apparently
Nooo! Leave that to George Lucas, he' s really mastered the CGI acting. That scares me! I hate it! Everybody is so pleased and excited by it. Animation is animation. Animation is great. But it's when you're now taking what should be films full of people, living thinking, breathing, flawed creatures and you're controlling every moment of that, it's just death to me. It's death to cinema, I can't watch those Star Wars films, they're dead things.Terry Gilliam Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Terry Gilliam: Nooo! Leave that to George Lucas, he' s really mastered the CGI acting. That scares
The more I got into presenting things to the world, the further it was taking me away from what I was, which was someone who just used to sit quietly at a piano and sing and play. It became very important to me not to lose sight of that.Kate Bush Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Kate Bush: The more I got into presenting things to the world, the further it was taking
As you make a habit of not taking anything personally, you won't need to place your trust in what others do or say. You will only need to trust yourself to make responsible choices. You are never responsible for the actions of others; you are only responsible for you. When you truly understand this, and refuse to take things personally, you can hardly be hurt by the careless comments or actions of others.Miguel Ruiz Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Miguel Ruiz: As you make a habit of not taking anything personally, you won't need to place
Once you let people know anything about what you think, that's it, you're dead. Then they'll be jumping about in your mind, taking things out, holding them up to the light and killing them, yes, killing them, because thoughts are supposed to stay and grow in quiet, dark places, like butterflies in cocoons.Helen Oyeyemi Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Helen Oyeyemi: Once you let people know anything about what you think, that's it, you're dead. Then
I very rarely want to go back and fix things, because I'm much more interested in the next thing, and in taking what I learned from the things that don't work, and applying them to new things that may work.Neil Gaiman Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Neil Gaiman: I very rarely want to go back and fix things, because I'm much more interested
GT: You know how you think you know these things about yourself?
GT: Like all these personal attributes about you as if theyre written down somewhere like a sort of mini biography so they have to be true.
GT: So you just believe them and hope that the believing is what makes them true.
GT: But then you spend so much time believing those things and taking their truth for granted that you somehow forget to MAKE them true with your words and deeds.
GT: How can i truly love adventure when i never even knew what it was?
Andrew Hussie Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Andrew Hussie: GT: You know how you think you know these things about yourself? GT: Like all
Chapter XV.--He Entreats God, that Whatever Useful Things He Learned as a Boy May Be Dedicated to Him. 24. Hear my prayer, O Lord; let not my soul faint under Thy discipline, nor let me faint in confessing unto Thee Thy mercies, whereby Thou hast saved me from all my most mischievous ways, that Thou mightest become sweet to me beyond all the seductions which I used to follow; and that I may love Thee entirely, and grasp Thy hand with my whole heart, and that Thou mayest deliver me from every temptation, even unto the end. For lo, O Lord, my King and my God, for Thy service be whatever useful thing I learnt as a boy--for Thy service what I speak, and write, and count. For when I learned vain things, Thou didst grant me Thy discipline; and my sin in taking delight in those vanities, Thou hast forgiven me. I learned, indeed, in them many useful words; but these may be learned in things not vain, and that is the safe way for youths to walk in.Augustine Of Hippo Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Augustine Of Hippo: Chapter XV.--He Entreats God, that Whatever Useful Things He Learned as a Boy May Be
Deeply moved, she poured the tea while they were finishing up. They came into the kitchen to replace the cleaning things, and she handed two cups to Om.
Noticing the red rose borders, he started to point out her error, "The pink one's for us," then stopped. Her face told him she was aware of it.
"What?" she asked, taking the pink cup for herself, "Is something wrong?"
"Nothing," his voice caught . He turned away, hoping she did not see the film of water glaze his eyes.
Rohinton Mistry Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Rohinton Mistry: Deeply moved, she poured the tea while they were finishing up. They came into the
The feel of her hand has never left me. It was different from any other hand I'd ever held, different from any touch I've ever known. It was merely the small, warm hand of a twelve-year-old girl, yet those five fingers and that palm were like a display case crammed full of everything I wanted to know
and everything I had to know. By taking my hand, she showed me what these things were. That within the real world, a place like this existed. In the space of those ten seconds I became a tiny bird, fluttering into the air, the wind rushing by. From high in the sky I could see a scene far away. It was so far off I couldn't make it out clearly, yet something was there, and I knew that someday I would travel to that place.
Haruki Murakami Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Haruki Murakami: The feel of her hand has never left me. It was different from any other
You are actually doing something. You are getting into this process without making sure that what you're doing is okay. Things are actually taking place, almost of their own accord, very simply and directly. That is meditation.Chogyam Trungpa Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Chogyam Trungpa: You are actually doing something. You are getting into this process without making sure that
I like taking my leads from what I see rather than trying to impose. I like that way of looking at things and seeing what's on screen and seeing how I can draw music out of it almost.Steven Price Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Steven Price: I like taking my leads from what I see rather than trying to impose. I
Forgiveness is taking seriously the awfulness of what has happened when you are treated unfairly. Forgiveness is not pretending that things are other than the way they are.Desmond Tutu Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Desmond Tutu: Forgiveness is taking seriously the awfulness of what has happened when you are treated unfairly.
I always have this red nose in my pocket, and if it looks like I'm taking things too seriously, or the person I'm talking to is taking them too seriously, I put the nose on. It doesn't matter what we're doing or talking about, it doesn't matter if we agree or disagree, the nose changes everything.Bernie Glassman Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Bernie Glassman: I always have this red nose in my pocket, and if it looks like I'm
As you practice things, you get better. I mean I've worked very hard on changing my life and taking what is good about it and trying to jettison the things I think were not good about it. I think the key word is "discipline," focus. I'm always working at it, but I'm not always successful.Lou Reed Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Lou Reed: As you practice things, you get better. I mean I've worked very hard on changing
In the end, by having a point of view, by taking a stand for things you believe in, you're ultimately always going to offend people. That's good. It's certainly more important to take a stand on some thing and offend people, than to be careful all of your life and have everyone approve of what you do. Or, as my psychiatrist likes to say, better to live one year as a tiger than 100 as a sheep.Madonna Ciccone Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Madonna Ciccone: In the end, by having a point of view, by taking a stand for things
What really got to me was not the fact that animal cruelty could predict violent behavior - it's that up until I read about it, I never thought that it was wrong. I was killing animals and taking them apart, and I had all the emotional reaction of a kid playing with Legos. It's like they weren't real to m - they were just toys to play with. Things.Dan Wells Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Dan Wells: What really got to me was not the fact that animal cruelty could predict violent
I like Colin Powell, I like his West Indian background, I like his intellect, I like a lot of things that he does and his style. What is at fault here is a policy that's taking this country to hell,Harry Belafonte Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Harry Belafonte: I like Colin Powell, I like his West Indian background, I like his intellect, I
I try to encourage people to think for themselves, to question standard assumptions ... Don't take assumptions for granted. Begin by taking a skeptical attitude toward anything that is conventional wisdom. Make it justify itself. It usually can't. Be willing to ask questions about what is taken for granted. Try to think things through for yourself.Noam Chomsky Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Noam Chomsky: I try to encourage people to think for themselves, to question standard assumptions ... Don't
I am fully aware that the things I do are construed as absolute craziness. But in actuality, we are just having fun in God's presence. We enjoy the happy presence of God and people get free from religion, so they stop taking themselves so seriously. Freedom from pride is liberating and empowering. The Lord loves to mock religion through us, because religion grieves Him tremendously. What we are never doing is trying to make a formula out of these crazy antics. In fact, most of these antics are gloriously deriding religious formula! Our antics are so crazy in fact that you would have to be a complete nutjob to think smoking a baby Jesus doll is the latest tool to get you to a new level with God. These silly acts don't get us filled with the Spirit, nor are we trying to start a new denomination with this stuff. We do lots of fun, goofy things because we are already in the Spirit by His grace, and we've been set free from the performance-oriented version of Christianity.John Crowder Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By John Crowder: I am fully aware that the things I do are construed as absolute craziness. But
Thievery was the most authentic form of flattery. What could be more satisfying than knowing the things you possessed were intriguing, captivating, or valuable enough to provoke another man to risk everything to obtain them? This was Kelsier's purpose in life, to remind people of the value of the things they loved. By taking them away.Brandon Sanderson Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Brandon Sanderson: Thievery was the most authentic form of flattery. What could be more satisfying than knowing
My engineer dad is where my technical acumen comes from. I remember him taking me to the factories to see how what works. Often he used to open up his motorbike to fix things and I saw how the wheels worked. His car used to be open for dissection very regularly. All this taught me and inspired me to look beyond what I could see on the skin.Bibhu Mohapatra Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Bibhu Mohapatra: My engineer dad is where my technical acumen comes from. I remember him taking me
So, when I thought June might take you away, I didn't know what to do. I felt like she was taking everything that mattered to me. I felt like she was taking away from you all the things that I didn't have. That's why I'm sorry. I'm sorry because you shouldn't have to be everything to me. I had you, but I'd forgotten that I had myself too.Marie Lu Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Marie Lu: So, when I thought June might take you away, I didn't know what to do.
Everyone knows what attention is. It is taking possession of the mind, in clear and vivid form, of one out of what seems several simultaneously possible objects or trains of thought. Focalization, concentration of consciousness are of its essence. It implies a withdrawal from some things in order to deal effectively with others.William James Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By William James: Everyone knows what attention is. It is taking possession of the mind, in clear and
I've asked you fifty questions and still have no sense of your life, your family, what you care about. They want to know about you, Katniss."
"But I don't want them to! They're already taking my future! They can't have the things that mattered to time in the past!" I say.
Suzanne Collins Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Suzanne Collins: I've asked you fifty questions and still have no sense of your life, your family,
I don't see a lot of studio executives caring at all about what the culture is telling us. They think they make the culture. They're not out taking the temperature of things and using the results of whatever sort of cultural surveying they're doing to make movies. They're interested in doing things that people are already comfortable with, and taking those properties and filling them.Wesley Morris Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Wesley Morris: I don't see a lot of studio executives caring at all about what the culture
I'm so scared of going crazy. I can already feel it happening. Things look weird, sound weird. Out of the blue I'll start thinking about stuff that doesn't make any sense. Sometimes the air around me feels ... hard. I don't even know what that means, but it's scary. I'm definitely starting. The Flare's taking my brain to hell.James Dashner Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By James Dashner: I'm so scared of going crazy. I can already feel it happening. Things look weird,
One must simply take the days of their lives as they happen. If you spend time worrying over what is to come, which may or may not happen, then you will only be wasting precious days you will wish in the future you could have cherished a bit longer.R.J. Gonzales Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By R.J. Gonzales: One must simply take the days of their lives as they happen. If you spend
We often think we know things when in fact it's only our imagination taking us further and further away from what is actually happening. What we imagine then seems very real to us. Soon we're caught up in our imaginary longings and loathings. But if you're here - truly present - you realize there's nothing to run from or to go after. You can stay calm ... Just be with this moment and see what's going on. (9)Steve Hagen Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Steve Hagen: We often think we know things when in fact it's only our imagination taking us
Giving importance to what we think because we thought it, taking our own selves not only (to quote the Greek philosopher) as the measure of all things but as their norm or standard, we create in ourselves, if not an interpretation, at least a criticism of the universe, which we don't even know and therefore cannot criticize. The giddiest, most weak-minded of us then promote that criticism to an interpretation that's superimposed, like a hallucination; induced rather than deduced. It's a hallucination in the strict sense, being an illusion based on something only dimly seen.Fernando Pessoa Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Fernando Pessoa: Giving importance to what we think because we thought it, taking our own selves not
People everywhere enjoy believing things that they know are not true. It spares them the ordeal of thinking for themselves and taking responsibility for what they know.Brooks Atkinson Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Brooks Atkinson: People everywhere enjoy believing things that they know are not true. It spares them the
I have always had this very strong, call it a feeling, call it a prejudice, call it a conviction ... that the mysteries are not easily available. You have to earn entrance into them. You didn't learn things for too little. You had to pay a price. And I felt that LSD was just blasting superhighways into the mysteries. And what I really didn't like about LSD is that people who were taking it were seeming to become less and less as they took it. They got emptier and more vapid.Norman Mailer Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Norman Mailer: I have always had this very strong, call it a feeling, call it a prejudice,
Imagine that you're an extremely modern car, equipped with a greater number of options and functions than most cars. You're faster and higher performance. You're very lucky. But it's not easy. Because no one knows exactly the number of options you have or what they enable you to do. Only you can know. And speed can be dangerous. Like when you're eight, you don't know how to drive. There are many things you have to learn: how to drive when it's wet, when it's snowy, to look out for other cars and respect them, to rest when you've been driving for too long.

I'm thirteen and I can see that I'm not managing to grow up in the right way: I can't understand the road signs, I'm not in control of my vehicle, I keep taking the wrong turnings and most of the time I feel like I'm stuck on the dodgems rather than on a race track.Delphine De Vigan Taking Things For What They Are Sayings By Delphine De Vigan: Imagine that you're an extremely modern car, equipped with a greater number of options and

I've often thought that people with severe depression have developed such a well for experiencing extreme emotion that they might be able to experience extreme joy in a way that "normal" people also might never understand, and that's what FURIOUSLY HAPPY is all about.

Women find that as they vanquish the predator, taking from it what is useful and leaving the rest, they are filled with intensity, vitality, and drive.
The predator's rage can be rendered into a soul-fire for accomplishing a great task in the world. The predator's craftiness can be used to inspect and understand things from a distance. The predator's killing nature can be used to kill off that must properly die in a woman's life,or what she must die to in her outer life, these being different things at different times.
