#1. At least I find solace in searching. - Author: Justin Wetch
Bending The Universe quotes by Justin Wetch
#2. Seduction like attraction, is spoken about in a more positive manner in our generation. Forgetting the fact that these attributes involve bending the will of another person in order to make our ends meet our means. - Author: Mwanandeke Kindembo
Bending The Universe quotes by Mwanandeke Kindembo
#3. Each human being exists because there's something they have to offer for the evolution of the universe that only they can fulfill. - Author: Herbie Hancock
Bending The Universe quotes by Herbie Hancock
#4. But Holden suspected there was a lot more to Prax than that. There was a relentless forward motion to the man. The universe might knock him down over and over again, but unless he was dead, he'd just keep getting up and shuffling ahead toward his goal. Holden thought he had probably been a very good scientist. Thrilled by small victories, undeterred by setbacks. Plodding along until he got to where he needed to be. - Author: James S.A. Corey
Bending The Universe quotes by James S.A. Corey
#5. The children of God should not have any other country here below but the universe itself, with the totality of all the reasoning creatures it ever has contained, contains, or ever will contain. That is the native city to which we owe our love. - Author: Simone Weil
Bending The Universe quotes by Simone Weil
#6. Evil is the chronic malady of the universe, and checked in one place, breaks forth in another. - Author: Herman Melville
Bending The Universe quotes by Herman Melville
#7. Religion is the emulation of the adult by the child. Religion is the
encystment of past beliefs: mythology, which is guesswork, the hidden
assumptions of trust in the universe, those pronouncements which men have made
in search of personal power ... all mingled with shreds of enlightenment.
And always the ultimate unspoken commandment is "Thou shalt not question!" But
we do anyway. We break that commandment as a matter of course. The work to
which we have set ourselves is the liberating of the imagination, the
harnessing of imagination to humankind's deepest sense of creativity. - Author: Brian Herbert
Bending The Universe quotes by Brian Herbert
#8. In this perspective, it looks surprising that our universe was initiated with a very finely tuned impetus, almost exactly enough to balance the decelerating tendency of gravity. It's like sitting at the bottom of a well and throwing a stone up so that it just comes to a halt exactly at the top-the required precision is astonishing: at one second after the Big Bang, Omega cannot have differed from unity by more than one part in a million billion (one in 10^15) in order that the universe should now, after ten billion years, be still expanding and with a value of Omega that has certainly not departed wildly from unity. - Author: Martin J. Rees
Bending The Universe quotes by Martin J. Rees
#9. Without doubt machines will be able to determine the means and avenues to goals, but men will continue to set the goals themselves. For what machine can ever apply the considerations of compassion and justice which, as man's enlightenment spreads ... will enter ever more into the decisions that affect his future ... in the universe? - Author: Lewis Strauss
Bending The Universe quotes by Lewis Strauss
#10. Love is the key-note of the universe
The theme, the melody. - Author: Henry Abbey
Bending The Universe quotes by Henry Abbey
#11. I am, in general, an easygoing person. I try to take a reed-bending-with-the-wind attitude toward life, rather than fight everything. But these constant "out of the frying pan, into the fire, into a worse fire, into a worse fire than the worse fire before it" situations that had been riddling my life of late were beginning to wear me down - Author: Katie MacAlister
Bending The Universe quotes by Katie MacAlister
#12. I have to re-create the universe every morning when I wake up, and kill it in the evening. - Author: Bjork
Bending The Universe quotes by Bjork
#13. The search for meaning is really the search for the lost chord. When the lost chord is discovered by humankind, the discord in the world will be healed and the symphony of the universe will come into complete harmony with itself. - Author: John O'Donohue
Bending The Universe quotes by John O'Donohue
#14. I step back out of the car and lean my left forearm on the door and my right on the roof. Out of pure frustration, I look up at the sky and ask the universe, "Why can't anyone look inside a car before they fucking steal it? - Author: M.K. Gilher
Bending The Universe quotes by M.K. Gilher
#15. One is reminded of Patriarch Nicephoros (806-815), who believed that "not only Christ, but the whole universe disappears if neither circumscribability nor image exist. - Author: Maximos Nicholas Constar
Bending The Universe quotes by Maximos Nicholas Constar
#16. Everything in our world, even a drop of dew, is a microcosm of the universe. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Bending The Universe quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#17. And just like that, the universe goes wrong. Just like that, all the enormity seems to shrink into a ball and float away from my reach. I feel it, and she doesn't. Or I feel it, and she won't. - Author: David Levithan
Bending The Universe quotes by David Levithan
#18. My mother and father held hands. I wondered what that was like, to hold someone's hand. I bet you could sometimes find all of the mysteries of the universe in someone's hands. - Author: Sáenz, Benjamin Alire
Bending The Universe quotes by Sáenz, Benjamin Alire
#19. The world outside of me has no meaning independent of my thinking it. (pauses to look) I look out of the window. A garden. Trees. Grass. A young woman in a chair reading a book. I think: chair. So she is sitting. I think: book. So she is reading. Now the young woman touches her hair where it's come undone. But how can we be sure there is a world of phenomena, a woman reading in a garden? Perhaps the only thing that's real is my sensory experience, which has the form of a woman reading- in a universe which is in fact empty! But Immanuel Kant says- no! Because what I perceive as reality includes concepts which I cannot experience through the senses. Time and space. Cause and effect. Relations between things. Without me there is something wrong with this picture. The trees, the grass, the woman are merely- oh, she's coming! (nervously)- she's coming in here-! I say, don't leave!-where are you going? - Author: Tom Stoppard
Bending The Universe quotes by Tom Stoppard
#20. Have fun and have faith that when you use your heart to navigate through life and use the Universe as a map the magic and miracles in your life will be endless. - Author: Angela Cecilia
Bending The Universe quotes by Angela Cecilia
#21. The sky was something she'd so often dreamed of while the hoo-ha of the Sunday service carried on around her. There seemed to her infinitely more God to be found by staring up at the never-ending universe than by looking glumly around a building of bricks and stone. - Author: Ali Shaw
Bending The Universe quotes by Ali Shaw
#22. So it is the human condition that to wish for the greatness of one's fatherland is to wish evil to one's neighbors. The citizen of the universe would be the man who wishes his country never to be either greater or smaller, richer or poorer. - Author: Voltaire
Bending The Universe quotes by Voltaire
#23. There are many great bands of perception in the universe. There are both organic and inorganic bands of perception. - Author: Frederick Lenz
Bending The Universe quotes by Frederick Lenz
#24. Using time, pressure and patience, the universe gradually changes caterpillars into butterflies, sand into pearls, and coal into diamonds. You're being worked on too, so hang in there. Just because something isn't apparent right now, doesn't mean it isn't happening. It's not until the end do you realize, sometimes your biggest blessings were disguised by pain and suffering. They were not placed there to break you, but to make you. - Author: John Geiger
Bending The Universe quotes by John Geiger
#25. O Prince, our eyes contemplate with admiration and transmit to the soul the wonderful and varied spectacle of this universe. The night veils without doubt a part of this glorious creation; but day comes to reveal to us this great work, which extends from earth even into the plains of the ether. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Bending The Universe quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#26. … when people ask about the meaning of life as if it were the job of our cosmos to give meaning to our existence, they're getting it backward: It's not our Universe giving meaning to conscious beings, but conscious beings giving meaning to our Universe. - Author: Max Tegmark
Bending The Universe quotes by Max  Tegmark
#27. No matter how competent or how seasoned, every astronaut is essentially a perpetual student, forever cramming for the next test. It's not how I envisioned things when I was 9 years old. Then I dreamed of blasting off in a blaze of glory to explore the universe, not sitting in a classroom studying orbital mechanics. In Russian. - Author: Chris Hadfield
Bending The Universe quotes by Chris Hadfield
#28. It matters, Emma." He grabs my hand and pulls me to him again. "Tell me right now. Do you care for me?"
"If you can't tell that I'm stupid in love with you, Galen, then you aren't a very good ambassador for the hum-"
His mouth covers mine, cutting me off. This kiss isn't gentle like the first one. It's definitely not sweet. It's rough, demanding, searching. And disorienting. There's not a part of me that isn't melting against Galen, not a part that isn't combusting with his fevered touch.
I accidentally moan into his lips. He takes it for his cue to life me off my feet, to pull me up to his height for more leverage. I take his groan for my cue to kiss him harder.
He ignores his cell phone ringing in his pocket. I ignore the rest of the universe. Even when headlights approach, I'm willing to overlook their intrusion and keep kissing. But, prince that he is Galen is a little more refined than me at this moment. He gently pries his lips from mine and sets me down. His smile is both intoxicated and intoxicating. "We still need to talk. - Author: Anna Banks
Bending The Universe quotes by Anna Banks
#29. Some of you from outside the South may be wondering why we're emphasizing this irrefutable historical fact that everyone should know so strongly already. Well, it's because there has been an unfortunate tendency down here to deflect as much attention as possible away from the atrocities that the South was responsible for before, during, and after the war, and to focus on the glory, the courage, and all that kind of shit instead. We name roads, schools, and parks after Confederate leaders. We erect statues in their honor. We revere them and honor them, all while ignoring the gigantic racist elephant in the room. 4 Look, it ain't nothin' wrong with glory and courage, and it's completely legitimate to acknowledge the military greatness of some of the Confederacy's leaders, but what's not okay is to do so without also acknowledging their complicity in and tacit acceptance of one of the single most reprehensible and inhumane practices in human history. 5 It's disingenuous. It's cheap. It's cowardly. We gotta cut that shit out.

So, yes, we fought a war for slavery, and because sometimes the universe gets some shit right (waterfalls, potatoes, Scarlett Johansson), we lost. Which is another thing we apparently need to remind some of our fellow Southerners of. Not only did we fight a war for slavery, but we got our asses whupped. Until we can all agree to accept this and act accordingly, we're never going to be able to move on. It's nothing to be proud of, y'all - it reall - Author: Trae Crowder
Bending The Universe quotes by Trae Crowder
#30. So many things which once had distressed or revolted him - the speeches and pronouncements of the learned, their assertions and their prohibitions, their refusal to allow the universe to move - all seemed to him now merely ridiculous, non-existent, compared with the majestic reality, the flood of energy, which now revealed itself to him: omnipresent, unalterable in its truth, relentless in its development, untouchable in its serenity, maternal and unfailing in its protectiveness. - Author: Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
Bending The Universe quotes by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
#31. Prayer helps correct myopia, calling to mind a perspective I daily forget. I keep reversing roles, thinking of ways in which God should serve me, rather than vice versa. As God fiercely reminded Job, the Lord of the universe has many things to manage, and in the midst of my self-pity I would do well to contemplate for a moment God's own point of view. - Author: Philip Yancey
Bending The Universe quotes by Philip Yancey
#32. Peace does not demand that everyone like or want the same reality. - Author: Alaric Hutchinson
Bending The Universe quotes by Alaric Hutchinson
#33. My criticism of Hegel procedure is that when in his discussion he arrives at a contradiction, he construes it as a crisis in the universe. - Author: Alfred North Whitehead
Bending The Universe quotes by Alfred North Whitehead
#34. Humility is just as much the opposite of self-abasement as it is of self-exaltation. To be humble is not to make comparisons. Secure in its reality, the self is neither better nor worse, bigger nor smaller, than anything else in the universe. It *is*
is nothing, yet at the same time one with everything. It is in this sense that humility is absolute self-effacement.
To be nothing in the self-effacement of humility, yet, for the sake of the task, to embody its whole weight and importance in your earing, as the one who has been called to undertake it. To give to people, works, poetry, art, what the self can contribute, and to take, simply and freely, what belongs to it by reason of its identity. Praise and blame, the winds of success and adversity, blow over such a life without leaving a trace or upsetting its balance. - Author: Dag Hammarskjold
Bending The Universe quotes by Dag Hammarskjold
#35. In a way, the whole tangible universe itself is a vast residue, a skeleton of countless lives that have germinated in it and have left it, leaving behind them only a trifling, infinitesimal part of their riches. - Author: Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
Bending The Universe quotes by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
#36. A man would have no pleasures in discovering all the beauties of the universe, even in heaven itself, unless he had a partner to whom he might communicate his joys. - Author: Marcus Tullius Cicero
Bending The Universe quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#37. As noble (and often ignoble) creatures of the universe, the people of the world must acknowledge the nakedness of long held beliefs and be open to constructive criticism. Even if the criticism comes from within or without the structures held sacrosanct. - Author: Leviak B. Kelly
Bending The Universe quotes by Leviak B. Kelly
#38. You know George M. Steinbrenner III is the center of all evil in the universe. - Author: Ben Affleck
Bending The Universe quotes by Ben Affleck
#39. Mistrust is the fuel for so much mental pain, so many mental disorders. I am not talking here about the suspicions we sometimes have of one another, the distant but lurking sense that perhaps our lover lies to us, our best friend whispers behind our back. I am talking about a belief that betrayal inundates the atoms of the universe, is so woven into the workings of the world that every step is treacherous, and that below the rich mud lies a mine. - Author: Lauren Slater
Bending The Universe quotes by Lauren Slater
#40. We live in a friendly universe. At the heart of all things is goodness. We receive this goodness in the measure to which we cultivate friendship with the universe. - Author: Dada Vaswani
Bending The Universe quotes by Dada Vaswani
#41. The rest of the planets have their dress and furniture, nay and their inhabitants too, as well as this Earth of ours. - Author: Christiaan Huygens
Bending The Universe quotes by Christiaan Huygens
#42. Now entertain conjecture of a time, When creeping murmur and the pouring dark Fill the wide vessel of the universe ... Chorus Henry V - Author: William Shakespeare
Bending The Universe quotes by William Shakespeare
#43. I believe absolutely in love being the central motive force of the universe. - Author: Laurence Housman
Bending The Universe quotes by Laurence Housman
#44. The jet-black sky behind him was reflected in this smile, and under the soft candlelight, it seemed to radiate with the brilliance of the whole universe. - Author: Tang Qi
Bending The Universe quotes by Tang Qi
#45. In one universe, they are gorgeous, straight-teethed, long-legged, wrapped in designer fashions, and given sports cars on their sixteenth birthdays. Teacher smile at them and grade them on the curve. They know the first names of the staff. They are the Pride of the Trojans. Oops – I mean Pride of the Blue Devils.

In Universe #2, they throw parties wild enough to attract college students. They worship the stink of Eau de Jocque. They rent beach houses in Cancún during Spring Break and get group-rate abortions before prom. - Author: Laurie Halse Anderson
Bending The Universe quotes by Laurie Halse Anderson
#46. There is no room for a complainer in a universe of law, and worry is soul-suicide. By your very attitude of mind you are strengthening the chains which bind you, and are drawing about you the darkness by which you are enveloped, Alter your outlook upon life, and your outward life will alter. - Author: James Allen
Bending The Universe quotes by James Allen
#47. Ironically, members on both sides of the debate do agree about one thing: big bang cosmology puts their position in jeopardy. The big bang poses a problem for young-earth creationists because it makes the universe billions of years old rather than thousands. Such an assertion undercuts their system at its foundation. Big bang cosmology also presents a problem for atheistic scientists because it points directly to the existence of a transcendent Creator - a fact they dare not concede. - Author: Hugh Ross
Bending The Universe quotes by Hugh Ross
#48. Some properties should not be changed. The Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything is 42, and you want it to stay that way. Error and status flags will often be hard-coded into your classes. Although they should be publicly and statically available, client code should not be able to change them. - Author: Matt Zandstra
