I am adrift. At 21, penniless in a world of plausible excuses, I am alone with my goals. These are difficult years, and if anything loving lay ahead I was already paying a large enough price. At my lowest in these years of signing on, I do not fit in anywhere with the family philosophy, and these days set the tempo of the times- even for the days when the sun re-enters the room. Travestied or not, you must just get through it.Morrissey When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Morrissey: I am adrift. At 21, penniless in a world of plausible excuses, I am alone
No matter what... don't give up. Don't stop believing in yourself and in what you can do, because you are strong and you are capable. Prove them wrong! Don't let them win! Remember when you are at your lowest low - there's only one way to go now... and that is UP!Steven Wolff When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Steven Wolff: No matter what... don't give up. Don't stop believing in yourself and in what you
Yet, love, mere love, is beautiful indeed
And worthy of acceptation. Fire is bright,
Let temple burn, or flax; an equal light
Leaps in the flame from cedar-plank or weed:
And love is fire. And when I say at need
I love thee ... mark! ... I love thee
in thy sight
I stand transfigured, glorified aright,
With conscience of the new rays that proceed
Out of my face toward thine. There's nothing low
In love, when love the lowest: meanest creatures
Who love God, God accepts while loving so.
And what I feel, across the inferior features
Of what I am, doth flash itself, and show
How that great work of Love enhances Nature's.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Elizabeth Barrett Browning: Yet, love, mere love, is beautiful indeedAnd worthy of acceptation. Fire is bright,Let temple burn,
When I think of music, I think of music in its totality, complete. From the lowest blues to the highest symphony, you know, so what I'd like to do is exemplify each style of as many periods as I can possibly do.Donny Hathaway When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Donny Hathaway: When I think of music, I think of music in its totality, complete. From the
Bruno had a pain in his stomach and he could feel something growing inside him, something that when it worked its way up from the lowest depths inside him to the outside world would either make him shout and scream that the whole thing was wrong and unfair and a big mistake for which somebody would pay one of these days, or just make him burst into tears instead.John Boyne When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By John Boyne: Bruno had a pain in his stomach and he could feel something growing inside him,
Sometimes, when you're feeling you're lowest, the real you is summoned~And you understand, maybe for the first time ever, how grand you are, because you discover that vulnerable doesn't mean powerless, scared doesn't mean lacking in beauty, and uncertainty doesn't mean that you're lost~These realizations alone will set you on a journey that you will take you far beyond what you used to think of as extraordinary.~There is always a bright side, The UniverseMike Dooley When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Mike Dooley: Sometimes, when you're feeling you're lowest, the real you is summoned~And you understand, maybe for
All things have their ends and cycles. And when they have reached their highest point, they are in their lowest ruin, for they cannot last for long in such a state. Such is the end for those who cannot moderate their fortune and prosperity with reason and temperance.Francois Rabelais When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Francois Rabelais: All things have their ends and cycles. And when they have reached their highest point,
I know, perhaps as well as anyone, what depression means, and what it is to feel myself sinking lower and lower. Yet at the worst, when I reach the lowest depths, I have an inward peace which no pain or depression can in the least disturb. Trusting in Jesus Christ my Savior, there is still a blessed quietness in the deep caverns of my soul, though upon the surface, a rough tempest may be raging, and there may be little apparent calm.Charles Spurgeon When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Charles Spurgeon: I know, perhaps as well as anyone, what depression means, and what it is to
There is no particular merit in fighting for your own skin when you know that it is fight or die, but there is considerable merit in being prepared to die when you know you can escape quite easily. Put at its lowest, there is a certain stubborn foolhardy heroism in that.M.M. Kaye When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By M.M. Kaye: There is no particular merit in fighting for your own skin when you know that
When you are at your lowest, look up!Alisha Broughton When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Alisha Broughton: When you are at your lowest, look up!
What made me love Christ wasn't that all of a sudden I figured out how to do life. What made me love Christ is that when I was at my worst, when I was at my lowest point, when I absolutely could not clean myself up and there was nothing anybody could do with me, right at that moment, Christ said, "I'll take that one. That's the one I want.Matt Chandler When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Matt Chandler: What made me love Christ wasn't that all of a sudden I figured out how
Aborting my baby is the most serious of the many maternal crimes I tally in my head when I am at my lowest, when the Bad Mother label seems to fit best. Rocketship was my baby. And I killed him.Ayelet Waldman When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Ayelet Waldman: Aborting my baby is the most serious of the many maternal crimes I tally in
When we are at our absolute lowest and weakest, Jesus invites us to hand him everything we have left. He invites us to give him our little, whatever our little is. When we give away our little, we place our full confidence in him.Louie Giglio When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Louie Giglio: When we are at our absolute lowest and weakest, Jesus invites us to hand him
When you remove time," de becker says, "you are subject to the lowest-quality intuitive reactionMalcolm Gladwell When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Malcolm Gladwell: When you remove time," de becker says, "you are subject to the lowest-quality intuitive reaction
You taught me what it means to fight for what you love.
You showed me great endurance in a manner that was unusual to me.
You fought for my heart until all the fight in you was gone without neglecting your brain.
You displayed to me what unconditional love should look like, if I were to stare at it in a mirror.
You loved me even on the days I found it difficult to even love myself.
You scooped down to help me up at my lowest.
You chained your heart to mine and stayed by my side even when all the signs gave you red lights about continuing our relationship.
You remained loyal, even when I became disloyal, and fulfilled the belief that many men are dogs.
You hung on longer than I expected,
Loved me more than I could ever imagine.
Some may have called you foolish for staying, but you showed me an aspect of love I've only read about in 1 Corinthians 13.
Pierre Alex Jeanty When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Pierre Alex Jeanty: You taught me what it means to fight for what you love.You showed me great
People are more likely to fall intensely in love when they are anxious and their self-esteem is lowest.... Feeling inadequate, unhappy, and empty are virtual prerequisites for falling and staying desperately in love; at least temporarily, the ecstasy of desire seems to cure everything that ails you. There is a connection between aversive states of mind -- loneliness, shame, even grief and horror -- and a propensity to feel overwhelming passion; this is one reason why romances blossom in times of war or natural disasters, as well as during the private disasters of our everyday lives.Jeanne Safer When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Jeanne Safer: People are more likely to fall intensely in love when they are anxious and their
When a schedule is not met, those inclined to pass out blame are quick to point at the lowest-level workers; they reason that performance is the domain entirely of those who perform the work. They ask plaintively, "Why can't these guys ever meet their schedules?" The answer that the schedule might have been wrong in the first place only befuddles them. It's as though they believe there is no such thing as a bad schedule, only bad performances that resulted in missing the scheduled date. There is such a thing as a bad schedule. A bad schedule is one that sets a date that is subsequently missed. That's it. That's the beginning and the end of how a schedule should be judged. If the date is missed, the schedule was wrong. It doesn't matter why the date was missed. The purpose of the schedule was planning, not goal-setting. Work that is not performed according to a plan invalidates the plan. The missed schedule indicts the planners, not the workers.Tom DeMarco When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Tom DeMarco: When a schedule is not met, those inclined to pass out blame are quick to
When the Vietnamese came to the United States they often faced prejudice from everyone - White, Black, and Hispanics. But they didn't beg for handouts and often took the lowest jobs offered. Even well-educated individuals didn't mind sweeping floors if it was a paying job. Today many of these same Vietnamese are property owners and entrepreneurs. That's the message I try to get across to the young people. The same opportunities are there, but we can't start out as vice president of the company. Even if we landed such a position, it wouldn't do us any good anyway because we wouldn't know how to do our work. It's better to start where we can fit in and then work our way up.Ben Carson When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Ben Carson: When the Vietnamese came to the United States they often faced prejudice from everyone -
When you have been to the lowest part of your life, you have no choice but to sit back and just think about things. You just pay attention to so much more.La'el Collins When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By La'el Collins: When you have been to the lowest part of your life, you have no choice
Don Enrique says a full moon pulls up the highest tides of the month, at midday and midnight. And it pulls them down to their lowest ebb when it is rising or setting. So says a man in a frock coat and breeches who, if he tried to row a boat, would fall out instantly and drown. But Leandro said the same thing about the moon and high tide, so it might be true. How can you know if the moon is going toward full, or disappearing? This evening the moon was half, and Leandro said it's dying away. You can tell because it's shaped like the letter C, not curved forward like D. He says when the moon is D like Dios, it is growing to fill God's sky. When dying away it is C, like Cristo on the cross. So, no good tides again for many days.Barbara Kingsolver When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Barbara Kingsolver: Don Enrique says a full moon pulls up the highest tides of the month, at
But then arises the doubt, can the mind of man, which has, as I fully believe been developed from a mind as low as that possessed by the lowest animal, be trusted when it draws such grand conclusions?Charles Darwin When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Charles Darwin: But then arises the doubt, can the mind of man, which has, as I fully
It is a lively spark of nobleness to descend in most favour to one when he is lowest in afflictionPhilip Sidney When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Philip Sidney: It is a lively spark of nobleness to descend in most favour to one when
Man may behold what ugliness he likes if he is sure that he will not worship it; but there are some so weak that they will worship a thing only because it is ugly. These must be chained to the beautiful. It is not always wrong even to go, like Dante, to the brink of the lowest promontory and look down at hell. It is when you look up at hell that a serious miscalculation has probably been made.G.K. Chesterton When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By G.K. Chesterton: Man may behold what ugliness he likes if he is sure that he will not
Beneatha: Love him? There is nothing left to love.
Mama: There is always something left to love. And if you ain't learned that, you ain't learned nothing. (Looking at her) Have you cried for that boy today? I don't mean for yourself and for the family 'cause we lost the money. I mean for him: what he been through and what it done to him. Child, when do you think is the time to love somebody the most? When they done good and made things easy for everybody? Well then, you ain't through learning - because that ain't the time at all. It's when he's at his lowest and can't believe in hisself 'cause the world done whipped him so! when you starts measuring somebody, measure him right, child, measure him right. Make sure you done taken into account what hills and valleys he come through before he got to wherever he is.
Lorraine Hansberry When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Lorraine Hansberry: Beneatha: Love him? There is nothing left to love.Mama: There is always something left to
When you hit your lowest point, you have two choices: stay down and let the circumstances drown you, or find your footing and kick until you eventually break the surface. I decide to kick.Amy Matayo When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Amy Matayo: When you hit your lowest point, you have two choices: stay down and let the
I've realized that what you think of when you make a 'big movie,' if it's actually a green screen movie, it's like doing independent New York theater because you don't have any backgrounds or props. So it's kind of like making the lowest budgeted film you could possibly imagine, plus $100 million.Emile Hirsch When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Emile Hirsch: I've realized that what you think of when you make a 'big movie,' if it's
You only really knew who your true friends were when you were at your lowest with nothing to offer. After the smoke cleared, that was when you finally saw who was left standing beside you.Sadie Allen When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Sadie Allen: You only really knew who your true friends were when you were at your lowest
The lowest animal forms had no nervous systems, still less a cerebrum; yet no one would venture to deny them the capacity for responding to stimuli. One could suspend life; not merely particular sense-organs, not only nervous reactions, but life itself. One could temporarily suspend the irritability to sensation of every form of living matter in the plant as well as in the animal kingdom; one could narcotize ova and spermatozoa with chloroform, chloral hydrate, or morphine. Consciousness, then, was simply a function of matter organized into life; a function that in higher manifestations turned upon its avatar and became an effort to explore and explain the phenomenon it displayed - a hopeful-hopeless project of life to achieve self-knowledge, nature in recoil - and vainly, in the event, since she cannot be resolved in knowledge, nor life, when all is said, listen to itself.Thomas Mann When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Thomas Mann: The lowest animal forms had no nervous systems, still less a cerebrum; yet no one
When I did a year-long study in 2005 of European countries integrating Muslims into their cultures, France came in the lowest of the rank. Sweden was not far behind, though, which is worrying, as racism in France is much closer to the bone.Janine Di Giovanni When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Janine Di Giovanni: When I did a year-long study in 2005 of European countries integrating Muslims into their
But something magical happened to me when I went to Reardan.
Overnight I became a good player.
I suppose it had something to do with confidence. I mean, I'd always been the lowest Indian on the reservation totem pole - I wasn't expected to be good so I wasn't. But in Reardan, my coach and the other players wanted me to be good. They needed me to be good. They expected me to be good. And so I became good.
I wanted to live up to the expectations.
I guess that's what it comes down to.
The power of expectations.
And as they expected more of me, I expected more of myself, and it just grew and grew.
Sherman Alexie When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Sherman Alexie: But something magical happened to me when I went to Reardan.Overnight I became a good
If a book is worth reading at all, it is worth reading more than once. Suspense is the lowest of excitants, designed to take your breath away when the brain and heart crave to linger in nobler enjoyment. Suspense drags you on; appreciation causes you to linger.William Gerhardie When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By William Gerhardie: If a book is worth reading at all, it is worth reading more than once.
The thing, whatever it was - and no one was ever sure afterwards whether it was a dream or a fit or what - happened at that peculiar hour before dawn when human vitality is at its lowest ebb. The Blue Hour they sometimes call it, l'heure bleue - the ribbon of darkness between the false dawn and the true, always blacker than all the rest of the night has been before it. Criminals break down and confess at that hour; suicides nerve themselves for their attempts; mists swirl in the sky; and - according to the old books of the monks and the hermits - strange, unholy shapes brood over the sleeping rooftops.
At any rate, it was at this hour that her screams shattered the stillness of that top-floor apartment overlooking the Pare Monceau. Curdling, razor-edged screams that slashed through the thick bedroom door. ("I'm Dangerous Tonight")
Cornell Woolrich When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Cornell Woolrich: The thing, whatever it was - and no one was ever sure afterwards whether it
Yet not so strictly hath our Lord impos'd /Labor, as to debar when we need /Refreshment, whether food, or talk between,/ food of the mind, or this sweet intercourse/Of looks and smiles, for smiles from Reason flow,/To brutes denied, and are of Love the food, Love not the lowest end of human life. For not to irksome toil, but to delight/ He made us, and delight to reason join'd.John Milton When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By John Milton: Yet not so strictly hath our Lord impos'd /Labor, as to debar when we need
A friend of mine told me a bunch of stuff on Buddhism and about Avicii being the lowest level of Buddhist hell, and it just sort of got stuck in my head. Later on when I went to setup a MySpace, I tried a bunch of names and they were all taken so I just kind of ended up with Avicii and then I got really attached to it.Avicii When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Avicii: A friend of mine told me a bunch of stuff on Buddhism and about Avicii
It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When
you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay
too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you
bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The
common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a
lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well
to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will
have enough to pay for something better.
John Ruskin When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By John Ruskin: It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. Whenyou pay
The lowest stage of humanity is experienced when the individual must labour for a small pittance of wages from others.Robert Owen When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Robert Owen: The lowest stage of humanity is experienced when the individual must labour for a small
Nothing, not even the best and noblest, can go on as it now is. Nothing, not even what is lowest and most bestial, will not be raised again if it submits to death. It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. Flesh and blood cannot come to the Mountains [heaven]. Not because they are too rank, but because they are too weak. What is a Lizard compared with a stallion? Lust is a poor, weak, whimpering whispering thing compared with that richness and energy of desire which will arise when lust has been killed.C.S. Lewis When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By C.S. Lewis: Nothing, not even the best and noblest, can go on as it now is. Nothing,
Sometimes when we are at our lowest points, we make the greatest discoveries.Pseudonymous Bosch When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Pseudonymous Bosch: Sometimes when we are at our lowest points, we make the greatest discoveries.
And perhaps the great day will come when a people, distinguished by wars and victories and by the highest development of a military order and intelligence, and accustomed to make the heaviest sacrifices for these things, will exclaim of its own free will, "We break the sword," and will smash its entire military establishment down to its lowest foundations. Rendering oneself unarmed when one has been the best-armed, out of a height of feeling - that is the means to real peace, which must always rest on a peace of mind; whereas the so-called armed peace, as it now exists in all countries, is the absence of peace of mind. One trusts neither oneself nor one's neighbor and, half from hatred, half from fear, does not lay down arms. Rather perish than hate and fear, and twice rather perish than make oneself hated and feared - this must some day become the highest maxim for every single commonwealth, too.Friedrich Nietzsche When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Friedrich Nietzsche: And perhaps the great day will come when a people, distinguished by wars and victories
2) Asking For The Order Doesn't Motivate People To Buy. What motivates people to buy is when they get that you "get" them - that you understand their world, and have shown how your product/service will impact their company in ways important to them. In most cases, the salesperson that wins the deal isn't the one with the best product or lowest price, but the one who best articulates the customer's point of view.Peter Bowerman When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Peter Bowerman: 2) Asking For The Order Doesn't Motivate People To Buy. What motivates people to buy
I would say to my colleague that the misery index, inflation and unemployment, when added together is the lowest it has been in the last series of Presidents, even going back to Jimmy Carter. So I think the Bush administration is doing a good job.Cliff Stearns When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Cliff Stearns: I would say to my colleague that the misery index, inflation and unemployment, when added
For the value of everything exists for man only so long as he does not understand it. When he has fully understood, the value is lost, be it the lowest thing or the highest thing.Hazrat Inayat Khan When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Hazrat Inayat Khan: For the value of everything exists for man only so long as he does not
Karpov, Kasparov, Korchnoi have absolutely destroyed chess by their immoral, unethical, prearranged games. These guys are really the lowest dogs around, and if people knew the truth about them, they would be held in more contempt than Ben Johnson, the runner, and they're going to know the truth when I do this book!Bobby Fischer When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Bobby Fischer: Karpov, Kasparov, Korchnoi have absolutely destroyed chess by their immoral, unethical, prearranged games. These guys
When you argue with someone, you always argue at the level of the person with the lowest level of intelligence. You never argue up.Spuds Crawford When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Spuds Crawford: When you argue with someone, you always argue at the level of the person with
Wounds and hardships provoke our courage, and when our fortunes are at the lowest, our wits and minds are commonly at the best.Pierre Charron When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Pierre Charron: Wounds and hardships provoke our courage, and when our fortunes are at the lowest, our
path of descent becomes our own liberation. We are freed from the exhausting stance of defense. We are no longer compelled to be right and are thus relieved from the burden of maintaining some reputation. We are released from the idols of greed, control, and status. The pressure to protect the house of cards is alleviated when we take the lowest place.Jen Hatmaker When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Jen Hatmaker: path of descent becomes our own liberation. We are freed from the exhausting stance of
In my memoir, I wanted to introduce American women to Iranian women and our lives. I'm not from the highest echelons of society, nor the lowest. I'm a women who is a lawyer, who is a professor at a university, who won the Nobel Peace Prize. At the same time, I cook. And even when I'm about to go to prison, one of the first things I do is to make enough food and put it in the fridge for my family.Shirin Ebadi When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Shirin Ebadi: In my memoir, I wanted to introduce American women to Iranian women and our lives.
Elizabeth, as they drove along, watched for the first appearance of Pemberley Woods with some perturbation; and when at length they turned in at the lodge, her spirits were in a high flutter. The park was very large, and contained great variety of ground. They entered it in one of its lowest points, and drove for some time through a beautiful wood stretching over a wide extent. Elizabeth's mind was too full for conversation, but she saw and admired every remarkable spot and point of view.Jane Austen When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Jane Austen: Elizabeth, as they drove along, watched for the first appearance of Pemberley Woods with some
Do you know what's one mistake we always make? Believing that life's immutable, that once you get on a particular track you have to follow it to the end of the line. But it appears that fate has more imagination than we do. Just when you think you're in a situation you can't escape from, when you've reached the lowest depths of total desperation, everything changes as fast as a gust of wind, everything's overturned; from one second to the next you find you're living a new life.Susanna Tamaro When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Susanna Tamaro: Do you know what's one mistake we always make? Believing that life's immutable, that once
If man really is fashioned, more than anything else, in the image of God, then clearly it follows that there is nothing on earth so near to God as a human being. The conclusion is inescapable, that to be in the presence of even the meanest, lowest, most repulsive specimen of humanity of the world is still to be closer to God than when looking up into a starry sky or at a beautiful sunset. Certainly that is why there is nothing in the new testament about beautiful sunsets.- Mike Mason -Author of The Mystery of MarriageMike Mason When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Mike Mason: If man really is fashioned, more than anything else, in the image of God, then
A subtle form of temptation, very likely to attack one during a wakeful hour of the night when vitality is at its lowest. Because it suddenly seems impossible to go on, values are abruptly turned upside down. To endure
which perhaps a mere half hour before was the right and obvious thing to do
is now presented to the mind as simply ridiculous; escape, which would have seemed despicable a little while ago, now seems to be the only sane course of action. The experienced man knows that it is not impossible to go on because one thinks it is, that you can always go on in some manner while the power of choice remains. This sudden reversal of the values is a temptation to preordain the moment when a man can no longer make his choice, and his responsibility for what happens next must be laid down. Faced with it, the experienced man once more chooses to come to grips with the impossible and finds it possible.
Elizabeth Goudge When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Elizabeth Goudge: A subtle form of temptation, very likely to attack one during a wakeful hour of
Oftentimes have I heard you speak of one who commits a wrong as though he were not one of you, but a stranger unto you and an intruder upon your world.
But I say that even as the holy and the righteous cannot rise beyond the highest which is in each one of you,
So the wicked and the weak cannot fall lower than the lowest which is in you also.
And as a single leaf turns not yellow but with the silent knowledge of the whole tree,
So the wrong-doer cannot do wrong without the hidden will of you all.
Like a procession you walk together towards your god-self.
You are the way and the wayfarers.
And when one of you falls down he falls for those behind him, a caution against the stumbling stone.
Kahlil Gibran When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Kahlil Gibran: Oftentimes have I heard you speak of one who commits a wrong as though he
A man who lies to himself, and believes his own lies, becomes unable to recognize truth, either in himself or in anyone else, and he ends up losing respect for himself and for others. When he has no respect for anyone, he can no longer love, and in him, he yields to his impulses, indulges in the lowest form of pleasure, and behaves in the end like an animal in satisfying his vices.Dave Donovan When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Dave Donovan: A man who lies to himself, and believes his own lies, becomes unable to recognize
Mankind are in the end always governed by superiority of intellectual faculties, and none are more sensible of this than the military profession. When, on my return from Italy, I assumed the dress of the Institute, and associated with men of science, I knew what I was doing: I was sure of not being misunderstood by the lowest drummer boy in the army.Napoleon Bonaparte When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Napoleon Bonaparte: Mankind are in the end always governed by superiority of intellectual faculties, and none are
We reduce the effectiveness of reading interventions when we don't provide our lowest-performing students reading time and encouragement. Developing readers need more reading, not less.Donalyn Miller When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Donalyn Miller: We reduce the effectiveness of reading interventions when we don't provide our lowest-performing students reading
He found me when I was at my lowest point.Faith Sullivan When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Faith Sullivan: He found me when I was at my lowest point.
Beliefs are a powerful thing. I often travel the world and sometimes the local waitresses attending me are nervous if they can't speak English. Now, when this happens, I point at the pictures in the menu. However, I've noticed that the ones with the strongest beliefs, the most nervous ones, still do a mistake in my order. Another interesting things to notice in these situations is that, when I correct them, by pointing again at what I ordered before, they recognize their mistake, but get angry, as if their mistake was my fault, and that's called irresponsibility. Now, when you combine irresponsibility with the wrong beliefs, you have a a very dumb person. That's what stupidity is, it's a human being doing the wrong things with the wrong beliefs and never ever accepting any responsibility for it. That's how those with the lowest spiritual conscience behave in general with themselves and others.Robin Sacredfire When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Robin Sacredfire: Beliefs are a powerful thing. I often travel the world and sometimes the local waitresses
(It's a weird thing, depression. Even now, writing this with a good distance of fourteen years from my lowest point, I haven't fully escaped. You get over it, but at the same time you never get over it. It comes back in flashes, when you are tired or anxious or have been eating the wrong stuff, and catches you off guard. I woke up with it a few days ago, in fact. I felt its dark wisps around my head, that ominous life-is-fear feeling. But then, after a morning with the best five- and six-year-olds in the world, it subsided. it is now an aside. Something to put brackets around. Life lesson: the way out is never through yourself.)Matt Haig When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Matt Haig: (It's a weird thing, depression. Even now, writing this with a good distance of fourteen
There's a special place in my heart for the ones who were with me at my lowest and still loved me when I wasn't very loveable.Yasmin Mogahed When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Yasmin Mogahed: There's a special place in my heart for the ones who were with me at
These wonderful narrations inspired me with strange feelings. Was man, indeed, at once so powerful, so virtuous and magnificent, yet so vicious and base? He appeared at one time a mere scion of the evil principle, and at another as all that can be conceived of noble and godlike. To be a great and virtuous man appeared the highest honour that can befall a sensitive being; to be base and vicious, as many on record have been, appeared the lowest degradation, a condition more abject than that of the blind mole or harmless worm. For a long time I could not conceive how one man could go forth to murder his fellow, or even why there were laws and governments; but when I heard details of vice and bloodshed, my wonder ceased, and I turned away with disgust and loathing.Mary Shelley When I'm At My Lowest Sayings By Mary Shelley: These wonderful narrations inspired me with strange feelings. Was man, indeed, at once so powerful,
And then, when I was at my lowest ebb, you came. And you somehow coaxed me into talking to you as though you were a trusted confidant. And then you flirted with me. For a few moments you bore me off with you to the sunshine above the clouds in a hot air balloon, wrapped together in warm furs and bound for a place far, far away.

My lowest self says: "That person is acting like a total jerk!"
My slightly higher self says: "That person is acting like a total jerk right now only because he's going through a really hard time in life, and his parents never taught him how to behave better, and he might have some sort of mild mental illness, and also he has a drinking problem ... so I should try to be more compassionate and generous toward sad, tragic, miserable people like that."
My even higher self says: "We are all just flawed and frightened human beings in an uncertain world, struggling to survive."
Then finally my VERY highest self says: "Lord, please help me stop acting like a total jerk."
... and that's when it finally stops being about the other person at all.

I cannot hate gay men, I cannot hate homosexuality. At the lowest points in my life, when all else abandoned me, my gay men friends were my sisters, aunts, mothers who lifted me up on their shoulders and reminded me that there is light at the end of the tunnel. If I were to hate gay men, or to condemn them just because they're gay, I would be a hypocrite. I simply cannot turn my back on arms that held me in my darkest hours.C. JoyBell C.

My parents to this day are unable to comprehend anything about my profession," Sophia sighed, "in fact, they stopped helping me with my homework the minute I hit the fifth grade. But they had wisdom that I could not find in books, and as powerful as I am...

One night I dreamed a dream.
I was walking along the beach with my Lord. Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, one belonging to me and one to my Lord.
When the last scene of my life shot before me I looked back at the footprints in the sand. There was only one set of footprints. I realized that this was at the lowest and saddest times of my life. This always bothered me and I questioned the Lord about my dilemma.
"Lord, You told me when I decided to follow You, You would walk and talk with me all the way. But I'm aware that during the most troublesome times of my life there is only one set of footprints. I just don't understand why, when I need You most, You leave me."
He whispered, "My precious child, I love you and will never leave you, never, ever, during your trials and testings. When you saw only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you.

When I say 'I won't hurt you', it's a promise, which can and will be kept but it does not come from me without a breakdown of what it means.
It does not mean we will never disagree, nor does it mean that you will always like everything which I say or do. It does not mean that you will never hurt yourself by behaving in a way which is damaging to a relationship or by behaving in a way which would ultimately result in my withdrawal from your life. What it does mean is that I can promise all that I expect in terms of loyalty, honor and respect. It means I am faithful. It also means that I will not intentionally or carelessly behave in a way which causes upset or doubt. It means, at the lowest level, 'You will break these terms before I do.'
Communication is essential. Trust is paramount.
Be completely honest and don't make promises that you can't keep, that's all.
