#1. All of us, have our antenna up for people who might harm us in one way or another, not just people who might hurt us physically, but also for people who might treat us unfairly, take advantage of us, cheat us or fail to do their share. And we react very strongly to be misleading by other people, is part of human nature, to guard against being hurt and exploited. - Author: Mark Leary
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Mark Leary
#2. Climate change has happened because of human behaviour, therefore it's only natural it should be us, human beings, to address this issue. It may not be too late if we take decisive actions today. - Author: Ban Ki-moon
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Ban Ki-moon
#3. The self-congratulatory popular account insists that Dr. King called on the nation to fully accept its own creed, and the walls came a-tumbling down. This conventional narrative is soothing, moving, and politically acceptable, and has only the disadvantage of bearing no resemblance to what actually happened. - Author: Timothy B. Tyson
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Timothy B. Tyson
#4. The common law does not proceed by legislation, or by imposing directives and decrees on a reluctant population. It proceeds by resolving conflicts, and discovering the rules that are implicit in those conflicts and in the behaviour that gives rise to them. Common law is discovered law, and its principles are not imposed from above but extracted from below, by judges whose aim is to do justice in the individual case, rather than to reform the conduct of mankind. Its rights are not stated but implied, and they encapsulate a vision of individual freedom rather than a politics of collective conformity. The rights dreamed up in the European Courts, by judges who do not pay the cost of imposing them, are experiments in social engineering, rather than recognitions of individual sovereignty, and this is in no matter more evident than in those clauses that have imposed the mores of the elite on a reluctant residue of Christian believers, and which are now ubiquitous in our statutory law. - Author: Roger Scruton
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Roger Scruton
#5. Everything is acceptable until we stop accepting them. - Author: Peter Adejimi
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Peter Adejimi
#6. What pretty oracles nature yields us on this text, in the face and behaviour of children, babes, and even brutes! That divided and rebel mind, that distrust of a sentiment because our arithmetic has computed the strength and means opposed to our purpose, these have not. Their mind being whole, their eye is as yet unconquered, and when we look in their faces, we are disconcerted. Infancy conforms to nobody: all conform to it, so that one babe commonly makes four or five out of the adults who prattle and play to it. So God has armed youth and puberty and manhood no less with its own piquancy and charm, and made it enviable and gracious and its claims not to be put by, if it will stand by itself. Do not think the youth has no force, because he cannot speak to you and me. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#7. Those gifts are ever the most acceptable which the giver makes precious.
[Lat., Acceptissima semper munera sunt auctor quae pretiosa facit.] - Author: Ovid
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Ovid
#8. The more we come in contact with animals and observe their behaviour, the more we love them, for we see how great is their care of the young. - Author: Immanuel Kant
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Immanuel Kant
#9. I like to have a martini,
Two at the very most.
After three I'm under the table,
after four I'm under my host. - Author: Dorothy Parker
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Dorothy Parker
#10. There was terror in each and every one of the people on that beautiful beach and on that breathtakingly beautiful evening. Terror of being alone, terror of the darkness filling their imaginations with devils, terror of doing anything not in the manuals of good behaviour, terror of God's judgement, of what other people would say, of the law punishing any mistake, terror of trying and failing, terror of succeeding and having to live with the envy of other people, terror of loving and being rejected, terror of asking for a rise in salary, of accepting an invitation, of going somewhere new, of not being able to speak a foreign language, of not making the right impression, of growing old, of dying, of being pointed on because of one's defects, of not being pointed out because of one's merits, of not being noticed either for one's defects or one's merits. Terror, terror, terror. Life was a reign of terror, in the shadow of the guillotine. - Author: Paulo Coelho
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Paulo Coelho
#11. It's actually quite the contrary. It's time to freak the fuck out, and that's not just acceptable, it's obligatory. The rug has just been pulled out from beneath your feet, and everything you thought you knew with absolute certainty has vanished. Absolute hysteria is just the beginning - you're about to embark on an entire roller coaster of crazy-ass emotions. - Author: Brandi Glanville
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Brandi Glanville
#12. I'm not very popular, because they're bleak and they're mournful and all the rest of it and I get censorious reviews. But I'm only writing fiction. I'm not making munitions, so I think it's acceptable. - Author: Anita Brookner
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Anita Brookner
#13. Authenticity is an "owning" of all experience, including emotions and thoughts that are not socially acceptable. - Author: Mary Pipher
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Mary Pipher
#14. The acceptable grieving period for the loss of my marriage and all the things it meant for my life had expired. The rest of the world had moved on. I was supposed to, too. - Author: Christina Lauren
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Christina Lauren
#15. Given the behaviour of human beings throughout the ages, they do not deserve life, with its many dark sides, in all its beauty, grandeur and magnificence ... - Author: Jose Saramago
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Jose Saramago
#16. I like less the story that a frog if put in cold water will not bestir itself if that water is heated up slowly and gradually and will in the end let itself be killed, boiled alive, too comfortable with continuity to realize that continuous change at some point may become intolerable and demand a change in behaviour. - Author: Charles Handy
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Charles Handy
#17. Minus my relationship with Kennedy, I had no automatic invitation to Greek Parties or events, though Chaz and Erin could invite me to some stuff since I fell under the heading of acceptable things to bring to any party: alcohol and girls.
Awesome. I'd gone from independent girlfriend to party paraphernalia. - Author: Tammara Webber
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Tammara Webber
#18. A Buddhist or a good atheist is as acceptable to God as a good Catholic. - Author: Pat Buckley
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Pat Buckley
#19. But if I hope to understand in order to accept things - the act of surrender will never happen. I must take the plunge all at once, a plunge that includes comprehension and especially incomprehension. And who am I to dare to think? What I have to do is surrender. How is it done? I know however that only by walking do you know how to walk and - miracle - find yourself walking. - Author: Clarice Lispector
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Clarice Lispector
#20. Sometimes we may find that our partner continues to seek satisfaction in ways that we cannot live with. Nevertheless, when we decide to go our own way, we still have a choice as to how we separate. We can separate with bad feelings, blaming the other's faults and unacceptable behaviour, or we can separate with forgiveness, love and understanding. - Author: Peter Russell
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Peter Russell
#21. I like rainbows.

We came back down to the meadow near the steaming terrace and sat in the river, just where one of the bigger hot streams poured into the cold water of the Ferris Fork. It is illegal – not to say suicidal – to bathe in any of the thermal features of the park. But when those features empty into the river, at what is called a hot pot, swimming and soaking are perfectly acceptable. So we were soaking off our long walk, talking about our favorite waterfalls, and discussing rainbows when it occurred to us that the moon was full. There wasn't a hint of foul weather. And if you had a clear sky and a waterfall facing in just the right direction…
Over the course of a couple of days we hked back down the canyon to the Boundary Creek Trail and followed it to Dunanda Falls, which is only about eight miles from the ranger station at the entrance to the park. Dunanda is a 150-foot-high plunge facing generally south, so that in the afternoons reliable rainbows dance over the rocks at its base. It is the archetype of all western waterfalls. Dunenda is an Indian name; in Shoshone it means "straight down," which is a pretty good description of the plunge.
…We had to walk three miles back toward the ranger station and our assigned campsite. We planned to set up our tents, eat, hang our food, and walk back to Dunanda Falls in the dark, using headlamps. We could be there by ten or eleven. At that time the full moon would clear the east ridge of the d - Author: Tim Cahill
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Tim Cahill
#22. Production for the sake of production - the obsession with the rate of growth, whether in the capitalist market or in planned economies - leads to monstrous absurdities. The only acceptable finality of human activity is the production of a subjectivity that is auto-enriching its relation to the world in a continuous fashion. - Author: Felix Guattari
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Felix Guattari
#23. Selling your life to sit in a box and work for a machine. An uncaring machine that demands productivity that doesn't understand you and doesn't want to understand you ... There's no natural behaviour. Everyone is wearing clothes they don't want to wear. Everybody is showing up and doing something they don't want to do. They have no connection to it. That's the problem with our society ... - Author: Joe Rogan
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Joe Rogan
#24. The most remarkable thing about man's dreams is that they all come true; this has always been the case, though no one would care to admit it. And a peculiarity of man's behaviour is that he is not in the least surprised when his dreams do come true; it is as if he had always expected nothing else. The goal to be reached and the determination to reach it are brother and sister, and slumber both in the same heart. - Author: Halldor Laxness
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Halldor Laxness
#25. Kyle worked in technology; he knew it would only be a matter of time before the video of Daniela and the A-list actor went viral and spread everywhere. So he did what any pissed-off, red-blooded computer geek would do after catching his girlfriend giving an underwater blowjob to another man: he hacked into Twitter and deleted both the video and her earlier tweet from the site. Then, raging at the world that had devolved so much in civility that 140-character breakups had become acceptable, he shut down the entire network in a denial-of-service attack that lasted two days.

And so began the Great Twitter Outage of 2011.

The Earth nearly stopped on its axis.

Panic and mayhem ensued as Twitter unsuccessfully attempted to counteract what it deemed the most sophisticated hijacking they'd ever experienced. Meanwhile, the FBI waited for either a ransom demand or political statement from the so-called "Twitter Terrorist." But neither was forthcoming, as the Twitter Terrorist had no political agenda, already was worth millions, and had most inconveniently taken off to Tijuana, Mexico to get shit-faced drunk on cheap tequila being served by an eight-fingered bartender named Esteban. - Author: Julie James
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Julie James
#26. You must ask, "What do we mean by great results?" Your goals don't have to be quantifiable, but they do have to be describable. Some leaders try to insist, "The only acceptable goals are measurable," but that's actually an undisciplined statement. Lots of goals-beauty, quality, life change, love-are worthy but not quantifiable. But you do have to be able to tell if you're making progress. - Author: James C. Collins
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by James C. Collins
#27. It galls me that seeking out the seedy, the sordid, the sexual, and the deviant is the expected (if not altogether acceptable) behavior of male writers; it would surely benefit me, as a writer, if I had the courage to seek out more of the seedy, the sordid, the sexual, and the deviant myself. But women who seek out such things are made to feel ashamed, or else they sound stridently ridiculous in defending themselves
as if they're bragging ... Yet there are subjects that remain off-limits for women writers. It's not unlike that dichotomy which exists regarding one's sexual past: it is permissible, even attractive, for a man to have had one, but if a woman has had a sexual past, she'd better keep quiet about it. - Author: John Irving
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by John Irving
#28. Refuse to be afraid that we will no longer be considered attractive and acceptable when we are strong. - Author: Jane Fonda
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Jane Fonda
#29. Man seldom behaves as per his philosophies. He usually philosophizes as per his behavior. - Author: Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#30. I suppose that I inherited the same vocabulary and world view as most black Christians do, most Christians in general, to be sure. It was heterosexist in the sense that it took the heterosexual orientation as the norm from which to start as the given. And everything that fell outside of that was not acceptable. - Author: Michael Eric Dyson
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Michael Eric Dyson
#31. good behaviour begets good behaviour. - Author: Amish Tripathi
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Amish Tripathi
#32. But can I really will anything? At this moment I feel the pleasure of being stone, the sun warms me, the wind makes acceptable this adjustment of my body, I have no intention of ceasing to be a stone. Why? Because I like it. So then I too am slave to a passion, which advises me against wanting freely its opposite. However, willing, I could will. And yet I do not. How much freer am I than a stone? - Author: Umberto Eco
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Umberto Eco
#33. Bluie, the blue stuffed bear I'd had since I was, like, one - back when it was socially acceptable to name one's friends after their hue. - Author: John Green
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by John Green
#34. She was a tabula rasa when it came to appropriate behavior. To say Lucy was difficult is like saying lightening is hazardous. It's a statement of fact that will always be a given. - Author: Patricia Cornwell
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Patricia Cornwell
#35. Never crave to be known for someone you are not. Be who you are in the day and when the lights are off, remain true! - Author: Israelmore Ayivor
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#36. My idea of an acceptable person is someone that is ready to accept my ideas. - Author: Benjamin Disraeli
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Benjamin Disraeli
#37. The only truth is that we cannot speak the truth . The only acceptable viewpoint is that we cannot express a viewpoint. - Author: Murong Xuecun
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Murong Xuecun
#38. Those of us who oppose hateful bigotry must not be silent when it rears its ugly head. When the tolerant tolerate the intolerant they risk losing the very freedoms they are trying to protect. Bigotry should never be allowed to become acceptable and commonplace in a healthy society. - Author: Laurence Overmire
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Laurence Overmire
#39. Even though some individual scholars try to tell us there is no direct connection between images of violence and the violence confronting us in our lives, the commonsense truth remains- we are affected by the images we consume and by the states of mind we are in when watching them. If consumers want to be entertained, and the images shown us as entertaining are images of violent dehumanization, it makes sense that these acts become more acceptable in our daily lives and that we become less likely to respond to them with moral outrage or concern. Were we all seeing more images of loving human interaction, it would undoubtedly have a positive impact on our lives. - Author: Bell Hooks
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by Bell Hooks
#40. Answering the question 'How would you like to smell?' by saying 'I'd rather I didn't' is also no longer acceptable. It's not playing the game. Men are expected to put some cash into the cosmetic pot too - it's seen as almost un-feminist not to. What a uniquely capitalist response to that gender inequality: women have been forced by convention for generations - millennia - to spend money on expensive clothes and agonising shoes, to daub themselves with reality-concealing slap, to smell expensively inhuman, to self-mutilate in pursuit of eternal youth; and this, quite rightly, has come to be deemed unfair. But how do we end this hell? We make men do it too. Well done everyone. - Author: David Mitchell
Acceptable Behaviour quotes by David Mitchell
#41. Evidentialism, the view that holds that a belief is rationally justified or acceptable only if it is held on the basis of good evidence, has been rejected by many in the field of epistemology, in which such questions are probed deeply, and this rejection is for good reasons. The fact is that for all our talk about evidence, most of us would have a difficult time producing evidence for many of the things we believe and take for granted. We have neither the time nor the resources to track down such evidence, so we simply accept most of our beliefs on the word of others or because we heard them in news reports or documentaries, read them in books, or received them from other sources of information. Are we acting irrationally for holding beliefs in this way? It hardly seems so. - Author: Paul Chamberlain
