#1. You know how you let yourself think that everything will be all right if you can only get to a certain place or do a certain thing. But when you get there you find it's not that simple. - Author: Richard Adams
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Richard Adams
#2. The experience of being in between-between the time we leave home and arrive at our destination; between the time we leave adolescence and arrive at adulthood; between the time we leave doubt and arrive at faith. It is like the time when a trapeze artist lets go the bars and hangs in midair, ready to catch another support: it is a time of danger, of expectation, of uncertainty, of excitement, or extraordinary aliveness. - Author: Paul Tournier
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Paul Tournier
#3. Out of the long tunnels of his eyes Adam saw his half-brother Charles as a bright being of another species, gifted with muscle and bone, speed and alertness, quite on a different plane, to be admired as one admires the sleek lazy danger of a black leopard, not by any chance to be compared with one's self. - Author: John Steinbeck
Danger Of Expectation quotes by John Steinbeck
#4. There are always in life countless tendencies for good and for evil, and each succeeding generation sees some of these tendencies strengthened and some weakened; nor is it by any means always, alas! that the tendencies for evil are weakened and those for good strengthened. But during the last few decades there certainly have been some notable changes for good in boy life. The great growth in the love of athletic sports, for instance, while fraught with danger if it becomes one-sided and unhealthy, has beyond all question had an excellent effect in increased manliness. - Author: Theodore Roosevelt
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#5. The journey of a thousands suns begins today.

Some may question whether the journey is worth the sacrifice and danger.

To them I say that no sacrifice is too dear and no danger too great to ensure the very survival of our human species.

What will we find when we arrive at our new homes? That's an open question. For a century, deep-space probes have reported alien lifeforms, but thus far none of which we recognize as intelligent beings. Are we the only biological intelligence in the universe? Perhaps our definition of intelligence is too narrow, too specio-centric.

For, are not trees intelligent, who know to shed their leaves at the end of summer? Are not turtles intelligent, who know when to bury themselves in mud under ice? Is not all life intelligent, that knows how to pass its vital essence to new generations?

Because half of intelligence resides in the body, be it plant or animal.

I now commend these brave colonists to the galaxy, to join their minds and bodies to the community of living beings they will encounter there, and to establish our rightful place among the stars. - Author: David Marusek
Danger Of Expectation quotes by David Marusek
#6. My assessment is that we have a crisis in national political leadership. When will America recognize the danger we face? When will the corrosive partisanship of American politics end and allow for a bipartisan solution to arguably the most dangerous threat our nation has faced in over 60 years? - Author: Ricardo Sanchez
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Ricardo Sanchez
#7. I'm not into danger, either." "Aw, Chess. You so into it you ain't climb out with a rope. Why else you do your job, live down here, buy from Bump?" "It's just - I mean - I just do, is all." Her cheeks burned. She shouldn't have let him come in here. She should have just sent him home and let him wash his stupid shirt himself. "No shame in it. Some of us needs an edge on things make us feel right, else we ain't like feeling at all, aye? - Author: Stacia Kane
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Stacia Kane
#8. The undiscriminating vulture is not our real danger: open scandal would simply drive him into profitless exile again, and would be no possible advantage to us. Neither should we fear our sturdy patriots who, like your father, are busy with their loyalties in queer and crooked ways. Our danger lies with the men who want to take this country by trunk and limb and wreak it into such a shape that it will fit them and their children for hose and jerkin in their old age."

"Some of them are sincere," said Lymond.

"I know: and such men will wreck us yet. Preserve us above all from the honest clod and the ambitious fanatic. - Author: Dorothy Dunnett
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#9. The danger of a dream is the courage to conquer. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#10. Take the word of experience, I speak the truth: inaction is safest in danger. - Author: Silius Italicus
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Silius Italicus
#11. We all travelled light, taking with us only what we considered to be the bare essentials of life. When we opened our luggage for Customs inspection, the contents of our bags were a fair indication of character and interests. Thus Margo's luggage contained a multitude of diaphanous garments, three books on slimming, and a regiment of small bottles each containing some elixir guaranteed to cure acne. Leslie's case held a couple of roll-top pullovers and a pair of trousers which were wrapped round two revolvers, an air-pistol, a book called Be Your Own Gunsmith, and a large bottle of oil that leaked. Larry was accompanied by two trunks of books and a brief-case containing his clothes. Mother's luggage was sensibly divided between clothes and various volumes on cooking and gardening. I travelled with only those items that I thought necessary to relieve the tedium of a long journey: four books on natural history, a butterfly net, a dog, and a jam-jar full of caterpillars all in imminent danger of turning into chrysalids. Thus, by our standards fully equipped, we left the clammy shores of England. - Author: Gerald Durrell
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Gerald Durrell
#12. The names we use to describe personality traits - such as extrovert, high achiever, or paranoid - refer to the specific patterns people have used to structure their attantion. At the same party, the extrovert will seek out and enjoy interactions with others, the high achiever will look for useful business conacts, and the paranoid will be on guard for signs of danger he must avoid. Attention can be invested in innumerable ways, ways that can make life eihther rich or miserable. - Author: Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
#13. I know there are lots of positives in the evolution of technology, but I also think it will be responsible for the end of a unique character, of a specific kind of geographical culture. The world is getting so small, and mass production is getting so big. Everything is in danger of becoming the same. - Author: Laura Marling
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Laura Marling
#14. The cow-shaped cookies have a beef flavoring, the turkey-shaped cookies have a poultry flavoring, and ... "
Jane held up one of the cookies. "Human-flavored?"
Meg stifled a sigh. That would be the first thing on her feedback list: don't make people-shaped cookies. The Wolves were way too interested and all of them leaped to a logical, if disturbing, expectation about the taste. - Author: Anne Bishop
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Anne Bishop
#15. We're coming to the point where I may need to split my men to evade pursuit. If so, my choice of bodyguard for you will depend much on your won abilities."
"Well, I am a fast reader, and I know how to make stew."
Carroll nodded in approval "You've a sense of humor about all this, Lady. You'll need one. You're entering a life of great danger. - Author: Erika Johansen
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Erika Johansen
#16. However desperate the situation and circumstances, don't despair. When there is everything to fear, be unafraid. When surrounded by dangers, fear none of them. When without resources, depend on resourcefulness. When surprised, take the enemy by surprise. - Author: Sun Tzu
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Sun Tzu
#17. When you're young, you're always wondering when you're actually going to feel like a grownup. And I think you probably fear it, in a sense, too. There's a danger to feeling like an adult ... like this whimsical kid in you is going to die or something. And then all of a sudden, one day you kind of feel like an adult and it's really nice. - Author: Drew Barrymore
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Drew Barrymore
#18. What's wrong with you?' he sounded desperate to understand. 'I take you to a zoo of psychos and you're trying to make friends like some kind of bobita? You're going to get yourself killed one day, Reina.'

I was quiet, but I knew he was wrong, and that it was just the opposite. Making friends with danger is the only way to survive. - Author: Patricia Engel
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Patricia Engel
#19. How did you fastforward and turn it off? (Danger)

I wanted it off and off it went. (Alexion)

Wow, that's amazing. I guess this makes me the luckiest woman in the world. (Danger)

How so? (Alexion)

I've found the only man alive who won't ever shout out, 'honey, where's the remote?' then tear my house apart in pursuit of it. (Danger) - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#20. Maybe we should live our lives in a constant state of expectation, always curious and excited about the possibilities that could unfold in front of us. Maybe it is our sense of vision that colors our reality. - Author: Allison Fallon
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Allison Fallon
#21. If I'd thought the hint of restrained danger he'd shown earlier was sexy, now he was downright hot. I understood why heroines in superhero movies were always swooning into their unitard-wearing heartthrobs' arms after being rescued. It wasn't that they were shrinking violets or weak girly-girls. It was just that seeing a man do something so extraordinary and supernatural to save you has a way of making your knees go weak in a very pleasant way. I'd always heard power was an aphrodisiac, but I hadn't considered the possible implications of that when working for a magical company. - Author: Shanna Swendson
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Shanna Swendson
#22. May my desires be enlarged and my hopes emboldened, that I may honour Thee by my entire dependency and the greatness of my expectation. - Author: Anonymous
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Anonymous
#23. I had no wish to take any determined route on that stroll; I attempted, rather, a maximum latitude of probabilities in order not to wear out expectation with an obligatory anticipation of a single one of them. I was able, within the imperfect limits of possibility, to walk, as they say, at random. I accepted, without any conscious prejudice but that of avoiding the wider avenues and streets, the most obscure invitations of chance. - Author: Jorge Luis Borges
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#24. Acceptance of the danger is of the essence for playing a quality sport. - Author: Pawan Mishra
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Pawan Mishra
#25. My life felt heavy that night, with each year of my life like a weighty crate, so I had almost thirteen crates to carry around inside me, with each crate full of notebooks and each notebook full of secrets. It is hard to lug such a heavy load around with me and to keep everyone from seeing it. But some secrets are so strange and so dangerous that showing them to people makes the strangeness and the danger pour into their lives like dark, dark ink. I lived with this ink myself, emblazoned on my ankle for me to see each morning when I got out of bed, except for the days when I collapsed exhausted with my shoes on. But I did not want to stain anyone else's life. - Author: Lemony Snicket
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Lemony Snicket
#26. At long last the horizon appears free to us again, even if it should not be bright; at long last our ships may venture out again, venture out to face any danger; all the daring of the lover of knowledge is permitted again; the sea, our sea, lies open again; perhaps there has never yet been such an 'open sea. - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#27. By [anticipatory anxiety] I mean that the patient reacts to an event with a fearful expectation of its recurrence. However, fear tends to make happen precisely that which one fears, and so does anticipatory anxiety. Thus a vicious circle is established. A symptom evokes a phobia and the phobia provokes the symptom. The recurrence of the symptom then reinforces the phobia. The patient is caught in a cocoon. […] [Obsessive-compulsives] fear the potential effects or the potential cause of the strange thoughts. The phobic pattern of flight from fear is paralleled by the obsessive-compulsive pattern. Obsessive-compulsive neurotics also display fear. But theirs is not 'fear of fear' but rather fear of themselves, and their response is to fight against obsessions and compulsions. But the more the patients fight, the stronger their symptoms become. In other words, alongside the circle formation built up by anticipatory anxiety in phobic cases, there is another feedback mechanism which we encounter in the obsessive-compulsive neurotic. Pressure induces counter-pressure, and counter-pressure, in turn, increases pressure. If one succeeds in making the patient stop fighting his obsessions and compulsions -- and this may well be accomplished by paradoxical intention -- these symptoms soon diminish and finally atrophy. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#28. It's amazing what the sound of a voice you've been longing to hear can do to your heart. He spoke five words just now, but in the time it took him to speak those five words, my heart was shredded and minced, then placed back inside my chest with the expectation that it should somehow know how to beat again. - Author: Colleen Hoover
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Colleen Hoover
#29. The greatest danger of being gifted, is that you may never learn how to make an effort. - Author: Tibor Fischer
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Tibor Fischer
#30. Our expectation of the gratitude of others for what we've done for them is sometimes exaggerated because of our deep desire for appreciation and approval. When our good work or good deeds go unrewarded by hoped for praise, we feel like failures so we treat those who denied us our due as betrayers. - Author: Michael Josephson
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Michael Josephson
#31. I would like to be remembered as a guy who had a set of priorities, and was willing to live by those priorities. In terms of accomplishments, my biggest accomplishment is that I kept the country safe amidst a real danger. - Author: George W. Bush
Danger Of Expectation quotes by George W. Bush
#32. I didn't ask to be born!"
"No, but I asked." He was breathing hard. His eyes hard and glinting with a fire that burned straight through me. "I asked for you every day of my life! - Author: Airicka Phoenix
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Airicka Phoenix
#33. Some people give off a scent of danger that the wise know and avoid and that the foolish are drawn to. - Author: Chris Priestley
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Chris Priestley
#34. I've seen you in action, BB. You get turned on by danger. You are seeking danger. The only reason you're with me is the risk of getting caught by your wife."

Ingrid aka 'Alis K'
The Informer by Steen Langstrup - Author: Steen Langstrup
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Steen Langstrup
#35. To give a name to a thing is as gratifying as giving a name to an island, but it is also dangerous: the danger consists in one's becoming convinced that all is taken care of and that once named, the phenomenon has also been explained. - Author: Primo Levi
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Primo Levi
#36. The petition of an empty hand is dangerous. - Author: Bill Vaughan
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Bill Vaughan
#37. Red is such an interesting color to correlate with emotion, because it's on both ends of the spectrum. On one end you have happiness, falling in love, infatuation with someone, passion, all that. On the other end, you've got obsession, jealousy, danger, fear, anger and frustration. - Author: Taylor Swift
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Taylor Swift
#38. I expressed skepticism, in the first chapter, about the utility of time machines in historical research. I especially advised against graduate students relying on them, because of the limited perspective you tend to get from being plunked down in some particular part of the past, and the danger of not getting back in time for your orals. - Author: John Lewis Gaddis
Danger Of Expectation quotes by John Lewis Gaddis
#39. I wouldn't," said the Luidaeg. "Love is love. It's rarer in Faerie than it used to be - rarer than it should be, if you ask me. If you can find it, you should cling to it, and never let anything interfere. Besides, he has a nice ass." Her lips quirked in a weirdly mischievous smile. "I mean, damn. Some people shouldn't be allowed to wear leather pants. He's one of them. He's a clear and present danger when he puts those things on. Or takes them off. - Author: Seanan McGuire
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Seanan McGuire
#40. Fear is an old word that derives from the same roots that give us "fare," as in "thoroughfare." Although it often causes people to run away from troubling situations, at a deeper level, fear means "to go through it." The hidden purpose of fear involves bringing us closer to natural instincts for survival, but also for awakening inner resources and sharpening our intelligence when faced with true danger and the basic need to change. - Author: Michael Meade
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Michael Meade
#41. The greatest danger of all is to allow new walls to divide us from one another - Author: Barack Obama
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Barack Obama
#42. I like the edge of danger. - Author: Vittorio Grigolo
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Vittorio Grigolo
#43. There are many in public life who deserve only our praise and admiration. But there are too many who are products of a class that knows little other than spin and the machinations of politics. Little wonder that leadership of the transforming sort is so hard to come by. The danger is that this may be permanent. Where our best people shun politics because the profession isn't honoured as it once was, this only serves to make the profession even less honoured. - Author: Tim Soutphommasane
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Tim Soutphommasane
#44. I fired the ball for the purpose of giving those dudes to understand upon what ground I stood, believing that those of this class who believe that there are no women capable of taking care of themselves when young, would inform their friends that they might be in danger of their lives if they approached me. - Author: Mary Edwards Walker
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Mary Edwards Walker
#45. Goldfinger could not have known that high tension was Bond's natural way of life and that pressure and danger relaxed him. - Author: Ian Fleming
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Ian Fleming
#46. What is to be done with millions of facts that bear witness that men, CONSCIOUSLY, that is fully understanding their real interests, have left them in the background and have rushed headlong on another path, to meet peril and danger, compelled to this course by nobody and nothing, but, as it were, simply disliking the beaten track, and have obstinately, willfully, struck out another difficult absurd way, seeking it almost in the darkness. - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#47. Shall I stop in to check on Bella before I go?"
"Not dressed like that. You would give her palpitations if she knew you were going into danger for her benefit."
"Luckily, I am mostly immune to Bella's powers and could cure such palpitations with a thought," Gideon mused.
Jacob raised a brow, taking the medic's measure. He could not recall the last time he had heard the Ancient crack wise about anything. It was not a wholly unpleasant experience, and it amused the Enforcer.
"I . . . am aware of what is occurring between you and Legna, as you know," Jacob mentioned with casual quiet. "I am only recently Imprinted myself, but should you require - " He broke off, suddenly uncomfortable. "Of course, you probably know far more about Imprinting than I ever will."
He is reaching out to you.
Legna's soft encouragement made Gideon suddenly aware of that fact. It was one of those nuances he would have missed completely, rusty as he was with matters of friendship and how to relate better to others.
"I am glad for the offer of any help you can provide," Gideon said quickly. "In fact, I had wanted to ask you . . . something . . ."
What did I want to ask him? he asked Legna urgently.
I do not know! I did not tell you to engage him, just to graciously accept his offer.
Oh. My apologies. Still, you are clever enough to think of something, are you not?
Legna knew he was baiting her, so she laughed.
Ask him why it is you seem to consta - Author: Jacquelyn Frank
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Jacquelyn Frank
#48. A person needed to experience real danger or they would never find joy in excelling. There had to be a risk of failure, the chance to die. - Author: Brandon Sanderson
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#49. An ethical act is one which does not harm others' experience or expectation of happiness. - Author: Dalai Lama
Danger Of Expectation quotes by Dalai Lama
