I think, as I've gotten older, I've been able to be more reckless with my choices, because practically speaking, you get less careful. Your choices become more instinctive, and you feel like if you make a mistake, it won't destroy you.Willem Dafoe Think Less Feel More Sayings By Willem Dafoe: I think, as I've gotten older, I've been able to be more reckless with my
Friends are a strange, volatile, contradictory, yet sticky phenomenon. They are made, crafted, shaped, molded, created by focused effort and intent. And yet, true friendship, once recognized, in its essence is effortless.
Best friends are formed by time.
Everyone is someone's friend, even when they think they are all alone.
If the friendship is not working, your heart will know. It's when you start being less than perfectly honest and perfectly earnest in your dealings. And it's when the things you do together no longer feel right.
However, sometimes it takes more effort to make it work after all.
Stick around long enough to become someone's best friend.
Vera Nazarian Think Less Feel More Sayings By Vera Nazarian: Friends are a strange, volatile, contradictory, yet sticky phenomenon. They are made, crafted, shaped, molded,
I feel like a lot has changed - ebooks are a much more valid format and bigger presses are taking less chances. As a bookseller, there are less real bookstores and more people buying on-line. As a writer, I think there are fewer paths to break through on a big press, but on the other hand there are more small presses doing awesome work now. Overall, artistically, I think it's a pretty exciting time in the literary world.Kevin Sampsell Think Less Feel More Sayings By Kevin Sampsell: I feel like a lot has changed - ebooks are a much more valid format
I think I have always had the misguided sense that worry and fear serve as an insurance policy of sorts. On a subconscious level, I subscribe to the notion that if you worry about something, it is somehow less likely to happen. Well, I am here to say that it doesn't work like that. The very thing you fear the most can still happen anyway. And when it does, you feel that much more cheated for having feared it in the first place.Emily Giffin Think Less Feel More Sayings By Emily Giffin: I think I have always had the misguided sense that worry and fear serve as
I think you can train yourself to block out some of that pressure and replace it with confidence. It's about preparation, and the more prepared I am, the less pressure I feel and the more confident I am. As your confidence grows, it's only natural that the pressure you feel diminishes.Aaron Rodgers Think Less Feel More Sayings By Aaron Rodgers: I think you can train yourself to block out some of that pressure and replace
The more your meditation goes deep, the less and less you will feel the burden of the mind. The more and more meditation goes deep, the less and less you will be a mind. Thoughts will become rare, and ultimately they cease. That doesn't mean you become unthinking; it only means that your consciousness becomes clear, transparent, without thoughts moving continuously as clouds. Whenever you need to think you can think; but now thought becomes an instrument to you, not an obsession as it is presently. Thoughts are an obsession without meditation.Rajneesh Think Less Feel More Sayings By Rajneesh: The more your meditation goes deep, the less and less you will feel the burden
Old age is really a disguise that no one but the old themselves see through. I feel exactly as I always did, as young inside as when I was twenty-one, but the outward shell conceals the real me - sometimes even from itself - and betrays that person deep down inside, under wrinkles and liver spots and all the horrors of decay. I sometimes think that I feel things more intensely than I used to, not less. But I am so afraid of appearing ridiculous. People expect serenity of the old. That is the stereotype, the mask we are expected to put on. ButMay Sarton Think Less Feel More Sayings By May Sarton: Old age is really a disguise that no one but the old themselves see through.
The Christian Gospel is that I am so flawed that Jesus had to die for me, yet I am so loved and valued that Jesus was glad to die for me. This leads to deep humility and deep confidence at the same time. It undermines both swaggering and sniveling. I cannot feel superior to anyone, and yet I have nothing to prove to anyone. I do not think more of myself nor less of myself. Instead, I think of myself less.Timothy Keller Think Less Feel More Sayings By Timothy Keller: The Christian Gospel is that I am so flawed that Jesus had to die for
Contempt
The contempt I feel for others - for myself different, less internal than guilt.

It's not that I think (or have ever thought) I was bad - through and through. I think I'm unattractive, unloveable, because I'm incomplete. It's not what I am that's wrong, it's that I'm not more (responsive, alive, generous, considerate, original, sensitive, brave etc.).

My profoundest experience is of indifference, rather than censure.
Susan Sontag Think Less Feel More Sayings By Susan Sontag: ContemptThe contempt I feel for others - for myself different, less internal than guilt. It's
On the job people feel skillful and challenged, and therefore feel more happy, strong, creative, and satisfied. In their free time people feel that there is generally not much to do and their skills are not being used, and therefore they tend to feel more sad, weak, dull, and dissatisfied. Yet they would like to work less and spend more time in leisure.
What does this contradictory pattern mean? There are several possible explanations, but one conclusion seems inevitable: when it comes to work, people do not heed the evidence of their senses. They disregard the quality of immediate experience, and base their motivation instead on the strongly rooted cultural stereotype of what work is supposed to be like. They think of it as an imposition, a constraint, an infringement of their freedom, and therefore something to be avoided as much as possible.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi Think Less Feel More Sayings By Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi: On the job people feel skillful and challenged, and therefore feel more happy, strong, creative,
I think it's just a lot more pressure to make the scenes work when you're doing a film, because when you're doing a series you feel like, I have so many scenes, so many episodes, so if I don't get it exactly right this time, I have another scene later. You feel less pressure.Chloe Sevigny Think Less Feel More Sayings By Chloe Sevigny: I think it's just a lot more pressure to make the scenes work when you're
I think that's great - I just try not to be one of those people. I find the more I think about it, the less free I feel when I write and when I work.Chang-rae Lee Think Less Feel More Sayings By Chang-rae Lee: I think that's great - I just try not to be one of those people.
But then, that's the question. Should you even pause to consider your own reactions? These men suffer so much more than he does, more than he can imagine. In the face of their suffering, isn't it self-indulgent to think about his own feelings? He has nobody to talk to about such things and blunders his way through as best he can. If you feel nothing -this is what he comes back to time and time again -you might just as well be a machine, and machines aren't very good at caring for people. There's something machine-like about a lot of the professional nurses here. Even Sister Byrd, whom he admires, he looks at her sometimes and sees an automaton. Well, lucky for her, perhaps. It's probably more efficient to be like that. Certainly less painful.Pat Barker Think Less Feel More Sayings By Pat Barker: But then, that's the question. Should you even pause to consider your own reactions? These
I'm one of the undeserving poor: that's what I am. Think of what that means to a man. It means that he's up agen middle class morality all the time. If there's anything going, and I put in for a bit of it, it's always the same story: "You're undeserving; so you can't have it." Buy my needs is as great as the most deserving widow's that ever got money out of six different charities in one week for the death of the same husband. I don't need less than a deserving man: I need more. I don't eat less hearty than him; and I drink a lot more. I want a bit of amusement, cause I'm a thinking man. I want cheerfulness and a song and a band when I feel low. Well, they charge me just the same for everything as they charge the deserving. What is middle class morality? Just an excuse for never giving me anything.George Bernard Shaw Think Less Feel More Sayings By George Bernard Shaw: I'm one of the undeserving poor: that's what I am. Think of what that means
If you want to become life sensitive, a simple process that you do is this: make whatever you think and whatever you feel less important. Try and see for one day. Suddenly you will feel the breeze, the rain, the flowers and the people, everything in a completely different way. Suddenly the life in you becomes much more active and alive for your experience.Jaggi Vasudev Think Less Feel More Sayings By Jaggi Vasudev: If you want to become life sensitive, a simple process that you do is this:
You're not like other Wasps."
"Aren't I?" Aagen smiled, but it was a painful smile. "No doubt you've killed my kinsmen by the score."
"A few," Salma allowed.
"Well, next time you shed my kinden's blood, think on this: we are but men, no less nor more than other men, and we strive and feel joy and fail as men have always done. We live in the darkness that is the birthright of us all, that of hurt and ignorance, only sometimes ... sometimes there comes the sun." He let the bowl fall from his fingers to the floor, watching it spin and settle, unbroken.
Adrian Tchaikovsky Think Less Feel More Sayings By Adrian Tchaikovsky: You're not like other Wasps.""Aren't I?" Aagen smiled, but it was a painful smile. "No
Hey. I've just thought of something which I shouldn't think about. Hey. Whoa, wait a minute. I feel like I'm thinking of even ore things I shouldn't. After all, I can't want, nor wish for it, because I'll never get it. Even though there's no way that guy's life will belong to me. Why am I this upset? We met more than ten years ago. But even on the day we first kissed, and the day we first slept together, somehow, he has never... told me he likes me, much less that he loves me. I've never said it either. And yet, I've only told him to stay by my side. I thought that was enough. I hate this. Why am I fixated on that man? I don't want to realise that now. That I want him to love me. I want him to love me. I want him to love me so much I could die.Natsuki Kizu Think Less Feel More Sayings By Natsuki Kizu: Hey. I've just thought of something which I shouldn't think about. Hey. Whoa, wait a
At times, I think of my career as a map. The closer you get to the map, the more you know where you are, but the closer I get to my career, the less happy I feel. At the same time, I have carved out the career for myself which I wanted.Rufus Sewell Think Less Feel More Sayings By Rufus Sewell: At times, I think of my career as a map. The closer you get to
At every level, from the microcellular to the psychological, exercise not only wards off the ill effects of chronic stress; it can also reverse them. Studies show that if researchers exercise rats that have been chronically stressed, that activity makes the hippocampus grow back to its preshriveled state. The mechanisms by which exercise changes how we think and feel are so much more effective than donuts, medicines, and wine. When you say you feel less stressed out after you go for a swim, or even a fast walk, you are.John Ratey Think Less Feel More Sayings By John Ratey: At every level, from the microcellular to the psychological, exercise not only wards off the
I think, with music in general, people just inevitably connect with feeling. The opportunity to hear expressed feeling. That's what has always drawn me towards music. It's something where, by connecting to someone else's voice, I feel less lonely. I feel more alive. I feel more connected to the world and to the rest of humanity. Sometimes a voice can be like a lifeline.Antony Hegarty Think Less Feel More Sayings By Antony Hegarty: I think, with music in general, people just inevitably connect with feeling. The opportunity to
I couldn't love anyone more than I do you, it would kill me. And I couldn't love anyone less because it would always feel like less. Even if I loved some other girl, that's all I would ever think about, the difference between loving her and loving you.Rainbow Rowell Think Less Feel More Sayings By Rainbow Rowell: I couldn't love anyone more than I do you, it would kill me. And I
I follow the course marked out by my principles and, what is more, enjoy a deep and noble pleasure in following it. You deeply despise the human race, at least our part of it; you think it not only fallen but incapable of ever rising again ... For my part, as I feel neither the right nor the wish to entertain such opinions of my species and my country, I think it is not necessary to despair of them. In my opinion, human societies, like individuals, amount to something only in liberty ... And God forbid that my mind should ever be crossed by the thought that it is necessary to despair of success ... You will allow me to have less confidence in your teaching than in the goodness and justice of God.Alexis De Tocqueville Think Less Feel More Sayings By Alexis De Tocqueville: I follow the course marked out by my principles and, what is more, enjoy a
Now there is one thing I can tell you: you will enjoy certain pleasures you would not fathom now. When you still had your mother you often thought of the days when you would have her no longer. Now you will often think of days past when you had her. When you are used to this horrible thing that they will forever be cast into the past, then you will gently feel her revive, returning to take her place, her entire place, beside you. At the present time, this is not yet possible. Let yourself be inert, wait till the incomprehensible power ... that has broken you restores you a little, I say a little, for henceforth you will always keep something broken about you. Tell yourself this, too, for it is a kind of pleasure to know that you will never love less, that you will never be consoled, that you will constantly remember more and more.Marcel Proust Think Less Feel More Sayings By Marcel Proust: Now there is one thing I can tell you: you will enjoy certain pleasures you
I think, therefore I am is the statement of an intellectual who underrates toothaches. I feel, therefore I am is a truth much more universally valid, and it applies to everything that's alive. My self does not differ substantially from yours in terms of its thought. Many people, few ideas: we all think more or less the same, and we exchange, borrow, steal thoughts from one another. However, when someone steps on my foot, only I feel the pain. The basis of the self is not thought but suffering, which is the most fundamental of all feelings. While it suffers, not even a cat can doubt its unique and uninterchangeable self. In intense suffering the world disappears and each of us is alone with his self. Suffering is the university of egocentrism.Milan Kundera Think Less Feel More Sayings By Milan Kundera: I think, therefore I am is the statement of an intellectual who underrates toothaches. I
Get out of your head and get into your heart. Think less, feel more.Rajneesh Think Less Feel More Sayings By Rajneesh: Get out of your head and get into your heart. Think less, feel more.
It is with the holiest fear that we should approach the terrible fact of the sufferings of Our Lord. Let no one think that these were less because He was more. The more delicate the nature, the more alive to all that is lovely and true, lawful and right, the more does it feel the antagonism of pain, the inroad of death upon life; the more dreadful is that breach of the harmony of things whose sound is torture.George MacDonald Think Less Feel More Sayings By George MacDonald: It is with the holiest fear that we should approach the terrible fact of the
When people are asked to do something that takes self-control, if they think they are doing it for personal reasons - if they feel like it's a choice or something they enjoy because it helps someone else - it's much less taxing. If they feel like they have no autonomy, if they're just following orders, their willpower muscles get tired much faster. In both cases, people ignored the cookies. But when the students were treated like cogs, rather than people, it took a lot more willpower.Charles Duhigg Think Less Feel More Sayings By Charles Duhigg: When people are asked to do something that takes self-control, if they think they are
I think I would have been a lot more miserable and discovered a lot less of things I liked if I hadn't had LiveJournal in high school. I think it's interesting how blogging seems to be shaping a new generation of writers. I feel like growing up with the Internet/blogging/other structures seems to be a reason for the similarities people see in Tao Lin's writing and other young writers, rather than direct.Marie Calloway Think Less Feel More Sayings By Marie Calloway: I think I would have been a lot more miserable and discovered a lot less
Look out there. Can you feel them? Incredible to think - other human beings out there. You strain your eyes the whole day long, see nothing, hear nothing, still can't believe it somehow - but know it's true. Other warm bodies, hearts pumping blood. That ought to make us feel less lonely, or safer, it seems. Then why is it so shocking? Because - they don't belong here. The possibility of life in this place is more terrifying than the place itself. Can it be that we're really here?Ted Tally Think Less Feel More Sayings By Ted Tally: Look out there. Can you feel them? Incredible to think - other human beings out
I think of myself as a kind of pulverizing machine into which everything I look at and feel is fed. I believe that I am different from the mixed-media jackdaws who use photographs etc. more or less literally.Francis Bacon Think Less Feel More Sayings By Francis Bacon: I think of myself as a kind of pulverizing machine into which everything I look
In fact, as I get older, I begin to feel that actually what we need more in the world is doubt; more skepticism, less crazed certainty ... People who know the answer and are going to impose it on everybody else, I think, are terrifying people.Ian McEwan Think Less Feel More Sayings By Ian McEwan: In fact, as I get older, I begin to feel that actually what we need
Friends, if it matters to you, I think it is less important that we agree and more important that we learn to disagree with respect. Let's not expect to agree and get frustrated when it doesn't happen. Let's strive to hear each other out while bringing out the best in ourselves and others. I know it's difficult because I feel it everyday. But I also know it'll be good for us as individuals, for the organization, and the country. I invite you to strive with me and help shift our culture.Annabel Park Think Less Feel More Sayings By Annabel Park: Friends, if it matters to you, I think it is less important that we agree
No, every album is something like a snapshot. It only shows one moment in time. It shows what we feel and think right at that point in time, nothing more and nothing less.Damon Albarn Think Less Feel More Sayings By Damon Albarn: No, every album is something like a snapshot. It only shows one moment in time.
People are kinda still a bit puritanical, perhaps. People don't expect a woman to feel so open, in a way, about her sexuality onscreen, and they probably find it fascinating. I think more actors are doing it and being open to that and not being afraid of it, so it's becoming less of a thing.Maria Bello Think Less Feel More Sayings By Maria Bello: People are kinda still a bit puritanical, perhaps. People don't expect a woman to feel
Be gentle with yourself. Think less and feel more. Be as happy as you can. You only have this moment.Dan Millman Think Less Feel More Sayings By Dan Millman: Be gentle with yourself. Think less and feel more. Be as happy as you can.
She's like a fix to an addiction. I thought if I had a taste, I'd want it less, but fuck me, all I can think of is more. Take more, want more, feel more, need more.K. Bromberg Think Less Feel More Sayings By K. Bromberg: She's like a fix to an addiction. I thought if I had a taste, I'd
People who expect to feel guilty tend to be more sympathetic, to put themselves into other people's shoes, to think about the consequences of their behaviour before acting, and to treasure their morals. As a result they are less prone to lie, cheat or behave immorally when they conduct a business deal or spot an opportunity to make money, studies suggest. They are also likely to make better employees because people who think less about the future results of their actions are more likely to be late, to steal or to be rude to clients.David D. Burns Think Less Feel More Sayings By David D. Burns: People who expect to feel guilty tend to be more sympathetic, to put themselves into
I find myself thinking more about the past as I get older ... maybe because there's just more of it to think about. At the same time, I'm less haunted by it than I was as a younger person. I guess that's probably the ideal: to reach a point where you have access to all of your memories, but you don't feel victimized by them.Jennifer Egan Think Less Feel More Sayings By Jennifer Egan: I find myself thinking more about the past as I get older ... maybe because
Fancy language tends to make "in" people feel more in and "out" people feel more out, and I don't think that's how words are best used. Words are best used to describe specific feelings, ideas, and hearts as clearly as possible - to make the speaker and the listener, or the writer and the reader, feel less alone and more hopeful.Glennon Doyle Melton Think Less Feel More Sayings By Glennon Doyle Melton: Fancy language tends to make "in" people feel more in and "out" people feel more
Solitude is, more or less, an inevitable circumstance. Sometimes, however, this sense of isolation, like acid spilling out of a bottle, can unconsciously eat away at a person's heart and dissolve it. You could see it, too, as a kind of double-edged sword. It protects me, but at the same time steadily cuts away at me from the inside. I think in my own way I'm aware of this danger - probably through experience - and that's why I've had to constantly keep my body in motion, in some cases pushing myself to the limit, in order to heal the loneliness I feel inside and to put it in perspective. Not so much as an intentional act, but as an instinctive reaction.Haruki Murakami Think Less Feel More Sayings By Haruki Murakami: Solitude is, more or less, an inevitable circumstance. Sometimes, however, this sense of isolation, like
The more I find life to be a great design, the more I suspect it to be singular in existence; the more I suspect it to be singular, the more I feel it to be specific and personal; the more I feel it to be personal, the more I think of it to be a mere question; And the more I think of it to be a question, the less I understand the questioner.Kedar Joshi Think Less Feel More Sayings By Kedar Joshi: The more I find life to be a great design, the more I suspect it
A few people commented that this seemed to be an American problem, because the places where they lived (mainly Europe) judged success less by things and accomplishments and more by feelings. Happiness came from spending time with people, and more non-Americans seemed to think that spending a few hours watching TV with the kids on the couch was something to celebrate and enjoy, rather than feel guilty about. ThenJenny Lawson Think Less Feel More Sayings By Jenny Lawson: A few people commented that this seemed to be an American problem, because the places
I think this fear of insanity is comparable to the fear people once had of falling off the edge of the world. Or the fear of heretics ... What's happening is that each year our old flat earth of conventional reason becomes less and less adequate to handle the experiences we have and this is creating wide-spread feelings of topsy-turviness. As a result we're getting more and more people in irrational areas of thought ... occultism, mysticism, drug changes and the like ... because they feel an inadequacy in classical reason to handle what they know are real experiences.Robert M. Pirsig Think Less Feel More Sayings By Robert M. Pirsig: I think this fear of insanity is comparable to the fear people once had of
I feel more and more at ease, because I think the older I get, the less pressure there is. People say, 'Well, he's not cutting edge because he's not in his twenties, so he's not expected to be.'Jude Law Think Less Feel More Sayings By Jude Law: I feel more and more at ease, because I think the older I get, the
So I think that if I do feel more freedom right now in my career, it's not so much because I have less at stake but more a sense that I've learned more.Mary Chapin Carpenter Think Less Feel More Sayings By Mary Chapin Carpenter: So I think that if I do feel more freedom right now in my career,
My contention is that as long as you have other faculties-the emotional, psychological, intuitive faculties-you haven't lost yourself or even diminished yourself. Don't be ashamed when you're physically limited or dysfunctional; don't think that you're any less because of your condition. In fact, I feel I am even more myself than I was before I got this illness because I have been able to transcend many of the psychological and emotional limitations I had before I developed ALS.Morrie Schwartz. Think Less Feel More Sayings By Morrie Schwartz.: My contention is that as long as you have other faculties-the emotional, psychological, intuitive faculties-you
People," Geralt turned his head, "like to invent monsters and monstrosities. Then they seem less monstrous themselves. When they get blind-drunk, cheat, steal, beat their wives, starve an old woman, when they kill a trapped fox with an axe or riddle the last existing unicorn with arrows, they like to think that the Bane entering cottages at daybreak is more monstrous than they are. They feel better then. They find it easier to live.Andrzej Sapkowski Think Less Feel More Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: People," Geralt turned his head, "like to invent monsters and monstrosities. Then they seem less
Put another way, to be more confident you need to give a whole lot less of a shit about what other people think of you. Confidence is not something you feel or possess; it's something others use to describe what they see when they look at you.Augusten Burroughs Think Less Feel More Sayings By Augusten Burroughs: Put another way, to be more confident you need to give a whole lot less
I think one begins to feel when things aren't important. I'm not sure how to put it. When you've spent thirty years entering rooms filled with strangers you feel less pressure than when you've had only half that number of years of experience. You know what the room and the people in it probably hold for you and you go looking for it. If it's not there, you sense it earlier and leave to go about your business. You just know more about what is, what isn't, and how little time there is to learn the difference. Do you understand, Merin? Do you follow me even a little bit?Dan Simmons Think Less Feel More Sayings By Dan Simmons: I think one begins to feel when things aren't important. I'm not sure how to
I'm not super-comfortable with it. I feel the less you project of yourself the more you can be believable as a character. I also think it's just better for your own mental health. Then you can be a human being and change your mind and nobody asks you questions about it!Evelyne Brochu Think Less Feel More Sayings By Evelyne Brochu: I'm not super-comfortable with it. I feel the less you project of yourself the more
We are a very fortunate people, and we know it. That good fortune should not be taken for granted, and so we try to share and try to help. It is our way of saying that we welcome the friendship of those less fortunate, that we do not think ourselves entitled to that which we have, but rather, that we feel blessed beyond what we deserve. And so we share, and so we work, and in doing so, we become something larger than ourselves, and more fulfilled than one can become from idly enjoying good fortune!Terry Brooks Think Less Feel More Sayings By Terry Brooks: We are a very fortunate people, and we know it. That good fortune should not
Without naming names, I think other movies look more realistic but they feel less real.Brad Bird Think Less Feel More Sayings By Brad Bird: Without naming names, I think other movies look more realistic but they feel less real.
One of the biggest mistakes made by people who wish to help an abused woman is to measure success by whether or not she leaves her abusive partner. If the woman feels unable or unready to end her relationship, or if she does separate for a period but then goes back to him, people who have attempted to help tend to feel that their effort failed and often channel this frustration into blaming the abused woman. A better measure of success for the person helping is how well you have respected the woman's right to run her own life - which the abusive man does not do - and how well you have helped her to think of strategies to increase her safety. If you stay focused on these goals you will feel less frustrated as a helper and will be a more valuable resource for the woman.Lundy Bancroft Think Less Feel More Sayings By Lundy Bancroft: One of the biggest mistakes made by people who wish to help an abused woman
You see, the spiritual law is that we receive according to what we give. So if you feel that you're giving more than you're receiving, you're either giving less than you think you are, or receiving more than you think you are. Either way, to receive more, you must give more.H. Ronald Hulnick Think Less Feel More Sayings By H. Ronald Hulnick: You see, the spiritual law is that we receive according to what we give. So
Because confidence is not the presence of anything at all. Confidence is a reduction of your own interest in whether others are thinking about you and if so, what they're thinking. Put another way, to be more confident you need to give a whole lot less of a shit about what other people think of you. Confidence is not something you feel or possess; it's something others use to describe what they see when they look at you. The experience others call confidence you experience as being at ease, fully yourself, and not self-conscious but rather task conscious. WhenAugusten Burroughs Think Less Feel More Sayings By Augusten Burroughs: Because confidence is not the presence of anything at all. Confidence is a reduction of
I walk among the young and healthy and I am more or less one of them. I am trying not to itch. I am trying not to think about whether I'm itching. I am trying not to take my skin for granted. Sometimes my heart beats too fast, or a worm lodges under the skin of my ankle, or I drink too much, or I am too thin, but these are sojourns away from a kingdom I can generally claim - of being okay, capable of desire and being desired, full of a sense I belong in the world. But when I leave the Baptist church on Slaughter Lane, I can't quite the voices of those who no longer feel they belong anywhere. I spend a day in their kingdom and then leave when I please. It feels like a betrayal to come up for air.Leslie Jamison Think Less Feel More Sayings By Leslie Jamison: I walk among the young and healthy and I am more or less one of
Some say knowledge is power. Some tell us that all power comes from the gods. Others say it derives from law. Yet that day on the steps of Baelor's Sept, our godly High Septon and the lawful Queen Regent and your ever-so-knowledgeable servant were as powerless as any cobbler or cooper in the crowd. Who truly killed Eddard Stark, do you think? Joffrey, who gave the command? Ser Ilyn Payne, who swung the sword? Or ... another?"
Tyrion cocked his head sideways. "Did you mean to answer your damned riddle, or only to make my head ache worse?"
Varys smiled. "Here, then. Power resides where men believe it resides. No more and no less."
"So power is a mummer's trick?"
"A shadow on the wall," Varys murmured, "yet shadows can kill. And ofttimes a very small man can cast a very large shadow."
Tyrion smiled. "Lord Varyls, I am growing strangely fond of you. I may kill you yet, but I think I'd feel sad about it.
George R R Martin Think Less Feel More Sayings By George R R Martin: Some say knowledge is power. Some tell us that all power comes from the gods.
The experience of death is going to get more and more painful, contrary to what many people believe. The forthcoming euthanasia will make it more rather than less painful because it will put the emphasis on personal decision in a way which was blissfully alien to the whole problem of dying in former times. It will make death even more subjectively intolerable, for people will feel responsible for their own deaths and morally obligated to rid their relatives of their unwanted presence. Euthanasia will further intensify all the problems its advocates think it will solve.Rene Girard Think Less Feel More Sayings By Rene Girard: The experience of death is going to get more and more painful, contrary to what
For my part, I think we need more emotion, not less. But I think, too, that we need to educate people in how to feel. Emotionalism is not the same as emotion. We cannot cut out emotion - in the economy of the human body, it is the limbic, not the neural, highway that takes precedence. We are not robots ... but we act as though all our problems would be solved if only we had no emotions to cloud our judgement.Jeanette Winterson Think Less Feel More Sayings By Jeanette Winterson: For my part, I think we need more emotion, not less.

When we fear what other people think about us, we are frequently more focused on 'being interesting' and less focused on 'taking an interest.' That's why many people talk a great deal when they are anxious and why many people never feel heard. If both people and conversation are trying to be interesting, there is no one left to genuinely listen.John Yokoyama Think Less Feel More Sayings By John Yokoyama: When we fear what other people think about us, we are frequently more focused on
Happiness increases and decreases depending on the level of power one has. When you have more power, more control on your life, you feel more happy and self-confident, as your power decreases and the control of your life slips away, you get less and less happy and when you no longer have any power to rely on you reach depression and despair. This is the point where your power meter has hit 0. You now need to rely on the good favors of others to live. For those who believe in the power of god, it sustains them through this dark hour. For those who do not believe, they think they have reached the end and may take their lives. That's why all conflict in life is about power and many lose life in its pursuit. Power is life itself.Bangambiki Habyarimana Think Less Feel More Sayings By Bangambiki Habyarimana: Happiness increases and decreases depending on the level of power one has. When you have
I keep feeling that people are becoming less human and more animalistic. They seem to think less and feel less so that everyone is operating on a very primitive level. I wonder what you and I will see in our lifetimes. It seems so hopeless yet we must keep on trying ... I guess we can't escape being a product of the times, can we?Bret Easton Ellis Think Less Feel More Sayings By Bret Easton Ellis: I keep feeling that people are becoming less human and more animalistic.

And these days, I find I'm caring less and less about what people think of me. Maybe it's my age, maybe it's my security in my career, maybe it's because I'm skrilla flush with that dollah-dollah-bill-y'all, but if I had to identify my overall feeling these days, it's much more "Eh, screw it.

Maybe something can only be born when something else dies. Maybe our 'coming alive' feels like being dragged through the dirt. Maybe you and I are hanging my a thread of grace for most of our lives and we're expected to be humble, not haughty, with the breaks we've been given. Maybe we're supposed to pay good deeds forward. Maybe we're supposed to think what's in it for me? far less than we do. Maybe we need to sacrifice more. Maybe it won't feel like a sacrifice at all, but more like the sensation of becoming unnumbed.Jeff Goins Think Less Feel More Sayings By Jeff Goins: Maybe something can only be born when something else dies.

Still, though, I can't be sure if the zoo as I recall it was really like that. How can I put it? I sometimes feel that it's too vivid, if you know what I mean. And when I start having thoughts like this, the more I think about it, the less I can tell how much of the vividness is real and how much of it my imagination has invented.Haruki Murakami Think Less Feel More Sayings By Haruki Murakami: Still, though, I can't be sure if the zoo as I recall it was really
What I like to do with music is make people feel better. Make people realize that all humans have the same problems, more or less. A lot of people deal with the same thing.
