#1. As I'm beginning to find out, parenting is no child's play, it could
Sometimes determine whether couples continue to live together or
go their separate ways. - Author: Oche Otorkpa
Couples Separate quotes by Oche Otorkpa
#2. Many married couples separate because they quarrel incessantly, but just as many separate because they were never honest enough or courageous enough to quarrel when they should have. - Author: Sydney J. Harris
Couples Separate quotes by Sydney J. Harris
#3. Sometimes it's difficult directing yourself on film because you can't quite separate yourself from the subject. - Author: Stanley Tucci
Couples Separate quotes by Stanley Tucci
#4. No form of government is valid, or has a logical claim to authority over human beings. Government, considered as an entity separate from an individual ruler, is a concept administered by a group. As it is an idea and not a human being, it does not possess its own freedom of action inherently. Nor can it acquire freedom of action, since it is the intellectual and conceptual creation of individuals. - Author: Tim Parise
Couples Separate quotes by Tim Parise
#5. And everyone's in the same situation, basically: we're all finding our separate ways, together. - Author: Chris Pavone
Couples Separate quotes by Chris Pavone
#6. What is the spirit of Christmas, you ask? Let me give you the answer in a true story...
On a cold day in December, feeling especially warm in my heart for no other reason than it was the holiday season, I walked through the store sporting a big grin on my face. Though most people were far too busy going about their business to notice me, one elderly gentleman in a wheelchair brought his eyes up to meet mine as we neared each other traveling opposite directions. He slowed in passing just long enough to speak to me.
"Now that's a Christmas smile if I ever saw one," he said.
My lips stretched to their limit in response, and I thanked him for the compliment. Then we went our separate ways. But, as I thought about the man and how sweetly he'd touched me, I realized something simply wonderful! In that brief, passing interaction we'd exchanged heartfelt gifts!
And that, my friend, is the spirit of Christ~mas. - Author: Richelle E. Goodrich
Couples Separate quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#7. A farmer who had a quarrelsome family called his sons and told them to lay a bunch of sticks before him. Then, after laying the sticks parallel to one another and binding them, he challenged his sons, one after one, to pick up the bundle and break it. They all tried, but in vain. Then, untying the bundle, he gave them the sticks to break one by one. This they did with the greatest ease. Then said the father, "Thus, my sons, as long as you remain united, you are a match for anything, but differ and separate, and you are undone". - Author: Aesop
Couples Separate quotes by Aesop
#8. I wanted to cry at how beautiful that tiny moment was. Couples were like sirens, making their own languages and signs, their own worlds" -Kahlen - Author: Kiera Cass
Couples Separate quotes by Kiera Cass
#9. There are three things, and it depends on the group that we're talking about, but there's history, there's culture, and then there's social networks. So, you know, historically black and white, they worship together until about the end of slavery, and people started moving out into separate churches. But it was because of discrimination and racism and such that blacks began to establish their own denominations and their own churches. - Author: Michael Emerson
Couples Separate quotes by Michael Emerson
#10. Weddings have always been a fascinating thing to me. A time when people look in each others eyes and promise each other they will never allow anyone or anything to divide them. Out of two families, they come together to form a separate branch that links back to their roots. It's a time when two families are joined together because of the hearts of two people. A time when ill will and bad feelings should be put to rest along with the past. Weddings signify a new beginning. After all, no human alive has ever been able to choose his family ... God knows, I would never have chosen mine. But as the Roman playwright Terence once wrote, 'From many a bad beginning great friendships have formed.' (Zarek) - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Couples Separate quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#11. Everyone around us sees themselves as essentially different from others, and from life in general. So we move in a world where almost everyone we meet will be reflecting back to us this egoic sense of consciousness. To find liberation, we must wake up from this dream that our mind creates, that we're something separate than everything around us. - Author: Adyashanti
Couples Separate quotes by Adyashanti
#12. 'Abstract' literally means to draw from or separate. In this sense every artist is abstract ... a realistic or nonobjective approach makes no difference. The result is what counts. - Author: Richard Diebenkorn
Couples Separate quotes by Richard Diebenkorn
#13. The night swelled with magic; not the beneficent kind of love-magic that sweeps couples away, but the kind of magic that rips and tears, the enchantment that creeps out of the woods and pounces. - Author: Charlaine Harris
Couples Separate quotes by Charlaine Harris
#14. This would be a much better world if more married couples were as deeply in love as they are in debt. - Author: Earl Wilson
Couples Separate quotes by Earl Wilson
#15. You were right, this is absolutely dismal," he said.

"Don't be so quick to judge," I replied. "Here comes the exciting part, where we continue to twirl in the exact same manner as before." Mr. Kent scoffed.

"Would you like to reverse our direction? Knock a few couples down?"

"But then there'll be nowhere to dance, with bodies all over the floor."

"My God, you are impossible to please. - Author: Tarun Shanker
Couples Separate quotes by Tarun Shanker
#16. On Hayao Miyazaki
I told Miyazaki I love the "gratuitous motion" in his films; instead of every movement being dictated by the story, sometimes people will just sit for a moment, or they will sigh, or look in a running stream, or do something extra, not to advance the story but only to give the sense of time and place and who they are.
"We have a word for that in Japanese," he said, "It's called ma. Emptiness. It's there intentionally."
Is that like the "pillow words" that separate phrases in Japanese poetry?
"I don't think it's like the "pillow word." He clapped his hands three or four times. "The time in between my clapping is ma. If you just have non-stop action with no breathing space at all, it's just busyness, but if you take a moment, then the tension building in the film can grow into a wider dimension. If you just have constant tension at 80 degrees all the time you just get numb. - Author: Roger Ebert
Couples Separate quotes by Roger Ebert
#17. You, Beloved, who are all the gardens I have ever gazed at, longing. An open window in a country house
, and you almost stepped out, pensive, to meet me. Streets that I chanced upon,
you had just walked down them and vanished. And sometimes, in a shop, the mirrors were still dizzy with your presence and, startled, gave back my too-sudden image. Who knows? Perhaps the same bird echoed through both of us yesterday, separate, in the evening ... - Author: Rainer Maria Rilke
Couples Separate quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#18. Our ancestors lived in groups of no more than a few hundred people, and those on the other side of a river or mountain range might as well have been living in a separate world. We developed ethical principles to help us to deal with problems within our community, not to help those outside it. The harms that it was considered wrong to cause were generally clear and well defined. We developed inhibitions against, and emotional responses to, such actions, and these instinctive or emotional reactions still form the basis for much of our moral thinking. - Author: Peter Singer
Couples Separate quotes by Peter Singer
#19. You do know that I don't have plans to separate you from your socks as you sleep? - Author: Rose Gordon
Couples Separate quotes by Rose Gordon
#20. When we really understand the fact of separate realities, we will stop spending so much time and energy trying to change the reality of others - Author: Jane Nelsen
Couples Separate quotes by Jane Nelsen
#21. Sensory perception is the silken web that binds our separate nervous systems into the encompassing ecosystem. - Author: David Abram
Couples Separate quotes by David Abram
#22. I was part of your train but my railroad car was disconnected and
switched at the track, and now my friends and I are on a separate journey
learning how not to rock the lifeboat, sending out a patient S.O.S to you for
help. I reach out with love, possibly one of a dying breed, the old survival of the fittest theory, or perhaps I am throwing you a lifeline from my Rectangular Bubble. - Author: Ann Lloyd
Couples Separate quotes by Ann Lloyd
#23. Here are three separate but similar things: shyness, introversion and social anxiety. You can have one, two or all three of these things simultaneously. A lot of the time people thing they're all the same thing, but that's just not true. Extroverts can be shy, introverts can be bold, and a condition like anxiety can strike whatever kind of social animal you are.

Lots of people are shy. Shy is normal. A bit of anxiety is normal. Throw the two together, add some brain-signal error - a NO ENTRY sign on the neural highway from my brain to my mouth perhaps, though no one really knows - and you have me. - Author: Sara Barnard
Couples Separate quotes by Sara Barnard
#24. Dualists hold that body and soul are separate entities and that the soul will continue beyond the existence of the physical body. - Author: Michael Shermer
Couples Separate quotes by Michael Shermer
#25. Happiness is a frame of mind. It is a state of thinking. It is an attitude, a headset, a mentality. Happiness is a disposition and demeanor. It is a mood and sensibility. It is a philosophy, a notion, a tone, an outlook and perspective. Happiness is all of these things, none of which exist separate from me. They cannot be extracted or stolen because they constitute my very being. Therefore, happiness must be the natural essence of me. - Author: Richelle E. Goodrich
Couples Separate quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#26. We went to a movie, Marlboro Man and me, longing for the quiet time in the dark. We couldn't find it anywhere else--my parents' house was bustling with people and plans and presents, and Marlboro Man had some visiting cousins staying with him on the ranch. A dim movie theater was our only haven, and we took full advantage of being only one of two couples in the entire place. We reverted back to adolescence, unashamed, cuddling closer and closer as the movie picked up steam. I took it even further, draping my leg over his and resting my hand on his tan bicep. Marlboro Man's arm reached across my waist as the temperature rose between us. Two days before our wedding, we were making out in a dark, hazy movie theater. It was one of the most romantic moments of my life. - Author: Ree Drummond
Couples Separate quotes by Ree Drummond
#27. I don't think we should see the world of books as fundamentally separate from the world of the Internet. Yes, the Internet contains a lot of videos of squirrels riding skateboards, but it can also be a place that facilitates big conversations about books. - Author: John Green
Couples Separate quotes by John Green
#28. After dark on Saturday night one could stand on the first tee of the golf-course and see the country-club windows as a yellow expanse over a very black and wavy ocean. The waves of this ocean, so to speak, were the heads of many curious caddies, a few of the more ingenious chauffeurs, the golf professional's deaf sister--and there were usually several stray, diffident waves who might have rolled inside had they so desired. This was the gallery.

The balcony was inside. It consisted of the circle of wicker chairs that lined the wall of the combination clubroom and ballroom. At these Saturday-night dances it was largely feminine; a great babel of middle-aged ladies with sharp eyes and icy hearts behind lorgnettes and large bosoms. The main function of the balcony was critical. It occasionally showed grudging admiration, but never approval, for it is well known among ladies over thirty-five that when the younger set dance in the summer-time it is with the very worst intentions in the world, and if they are not bombarded with stony eyes stray couples will dance weird barbaric interludes in the corners, and the more popular, more dangerous, girls will sometimes be kissed in the parked limousines of unsuspecting dowagers.

But, after all, this critical circle is not close enough to the stage to see the actors' faces and catch the subtler byplay. It can only frown and lean, ask questions and make satisfactory deductions from its set of postulates, such as the one - Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
Couples Separate quotes by F. Scott Fitzgerald
#29. Watching them was like watching the sunset and the sunrise, equally beautiful in different ways. - Author: Shannon A. Thompson
Couples Separate quotes by Shannon A. Thompson
#30. Geometry, which should only obey Physics, when united with it sometimes commands it. If it happens that the question which we wish to examine is too complicated for all the elements to be able to enter into the analytical comparison we wish to make, we separate the more inconvenient [elements], we substitute others for them, less troublesome but also less real, and we are surprised to arrive, notwithstanding a painful labour, only at a result contradicted by nature; as if after having disguised it, cut it short or altered it, a purely mechanical combination could give it back to us. - Author: Jean Le Rond D'Alembert
Couples Separate quotes by Jean Le Rond D'Alembert
#31. I have the belief that a person and his art should have one direction; your work should be a synonym for your person - the two shouldn't be separate. - Author: Zhang Xiaogang
Couples Separate quotes by Zhang Xiaogang
#32. The roots of all living things are tied together. Deep in the ground of being, they tangle and embrace. This understanding is expressed in the term nonduality. If we look deeply, we find that we do not have a separate self-identity, a self that does not include sun and wind, earth and water, creatures and plants, and one another. - Author: Joan Halifax
Couples Separate quotes by Joan Halifax
#33. Each of the seven seals reveals a part of the book. When we understand that each seal as a separate covenant, then everything makes sense. - Author: Dennis LaValley
Couples Separate quotes by Dennis LaValley
#34. Christ, therefore, died for our sins, in order to redeem or separate us from the world. - Author: John Calvin
Couples Separate quotes by John Calvin
#35. In worship we have our neighbors to right and left, before and behind, yet the Eternal Presence is over all and beneath all. Worship does not consist in achieving a mental state of concentrated isolation from one's fellows. But in depth of common worship it is as if we found our separate lives were all one life, within whom we live and move and have our being. - Author: Thomas Raymond Kelly
Couples Separate quotes by Thomas Raymond Kelly
#36. I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor eprincipalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. - Author: Anonymous
Couples Separate quotes by Anonymous
#37. Synergy is the only word in our language that means behavior of whole systems unpredicted by the separately observed behaviors of any of the system's separate parts or any subassembly of
the system's parts. - Author: R. Buckminster Fuller
Couples Separate quotes by R. Buckminster Fuller
#38. Are you guys arguing?" Jess asked.

"Are we?" I asked.

"Maybe a little but that's okay. Couples argue. We'll figure it out and we can have make-up sex later," Braden said, and Bruno yipped.

"Hey, I think the dog knows that word," Mark said, studying Bruno curiously.

"Look who his parents are," Adam said dryly. "God knows what he's been exposed to. He probably needs psychoanalysis. - Author: N.M. Silber
Couples Separate quotes by N.M. Silber
#39. Alexey Alexandorivich had seen nothing striking or improper in the fact that his wife was sitting with Vronsky at a separate table, in eager conversation with him about something. But he noticed that to the rest of the party this appeared to be something striking and improper. He made up his mind that he must speak of it to his wife. - Author: Leo Tolstoy
Couples Separate quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#40. Actually - and this was where I began to feel seriously uncomfortable - some such divine claim underlay not just 'the occupation' but the whole idea of a separate state for Jews in Palestine. Take away the divine warrant for the Holy Land and where were you, and what were you? Just another land-thief like the Turks or the British, except that in this case you wanted the land without the people. And the original Zionist slogan - 'a land without a people for a people without a land' - disclosed its own negation when I saw the densely populated Arab towns dwelling sullenly under Jewish tutelage. You want irony? How about Jews becoming colonizers at just the moment when other Europeans had given up on the idea? - Author: Christopher Hitchens
Couples Separate quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#41. Just as children, step by step, must separate from their parents, we will have to separate from them. And we will probably suffer ... from some degree of separation anxiety: because separation ends sweet symbiosis. Because separation reduces our power and control. Because separation makes us feel less needed, less important. And because separation exposes our children to danger. - Author: Judith Viorst
Couples Separate quotes by Judith Viorst
#42. It is not necessarily ominous that the formal family dinner is declining in many households or becoming limited to special occasions. We might be better off if we could separate food as nourishment and pleasure from food as the currency of care that leaves so many woman laboring long hours to prove affection in that semantic muddle called nurturance. - Author: Mary Catherine Bateson
Couples Separate quotes by Mary Catherine Bateson
#43. Your dreams, what you hope for and all that, it's not separate from your life. It grows right up out of it. - Author: Barbara Kingsolver
Couples Separate quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#44. I do not separate France from Europe. - Author: Lionel Jospin
Couples Separate quotes by Lionel Jospin
#45. Once the primary bonds which gave security to the individual are severed, once the individual faces the world outside of himself as a completely separate entity, two courses re-open to him since he has to overcome the unbearable state of powerlessness and aloneness. By one course he can progress to "positive freedom"; he can relate himself spontaneously to the world in love and work, in the genuine expression of his emotional, sensuous and intellectual capacities; he can thus become one again with man, nature, and himself, without giving up the independence and integrity of his individual self. The other course open to him is to fall back, to give up his freedom, and to try to overcome his aloneness by eliminating the gap that has arisen between his individual self and the world. This second course never reunites him with the world in the way he was related to it before he merged as an "individual," for the fact of his separateness cannot be reversed; it is an escape from an unbearable situation which would make life impossible if it were prolonged. This course of escape, therefore, is characterized by its compulsive character, like every escape from threatening panic; it is also characterized by the more or less complete surrender of individuality and the integrity of the self. Thus it is not a solution which leads to happiness and positive freedom; it is, in principle, a solution which is to be found in all neurotic phenomena. It assuages an unbearable anxiety and makes lif - Author: Erich Fromm
Couples Separate quotes by Erich Fromm
#46. For we are all in some way or other kept asunder by our secrets; and instead of seeking through confession to bridge the abysses that separate us from one another, we choose the easy by-way of deceptive opinions and illusions. - Author: C.G. Jung
Couples Separate quotes by C.G. Jung
#47. The head and the heart are not separate, but rather like intimate friends who work together sharing their experiences which enrich our lives and those of others".

~R. Alan Woods [2012] - Author: R. Alan Woods
Couples Separate quotes by R. Alan Woods
#48. I hate the way market forces try to separate us out in to the appropriate demographic - basically in order to sell us things. We need to find stories that we can enjoy together, not separately. - Author: Emma Thompson
