#5. Inspiration comes unawares, from unaccountable sources that have nothing to do with planning or intelligence. Let it cool ever so slightly, and you are left, pen or brush in hand, with no inspiration at all. Gifted people need not, therefore, make a song and dance about being or supposing themselves superior. They simply happened to be born with that fortunate, subconscious equipment of theirs, and the mystery exists independently of intelligence or ambition. - Author: Maurice Chevalier
Gifted People quotes by Maurice Chevalier

Gifted People quotes by Veronica Lake

Gifted People quotes by Benjamin Netanyahu

Gifted People quotes by Richard J. Foster
#9. I have a problem with a church that has its main mission aimed at preferential treatment of rich, attractive, influential, and gifted people. Instead, it should be more concerned with its people's spiritual growth instead of administering an ancient museum. - Author: Scott S. Haraburda

Gifted People quotes by Shannon L. Alder

#14. In Hollywood, the ... basic freedom of being able to choose between alternatives is absent.

Gifted People quotes by Hortense Powdermaker
#15. The denunciation and smearing of truly gifted people like Rodriguez - people the Chicano community should be proud of - by the self-appointed gatekeepers of Chicano Studies is, alas, an everyday spectacle. (Did anyone in the Chicano Studies community even take note when Dana Gioia, who is one of the best poets of his generation and happens to be half Mexican American, was named chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts in 2002? No, because he made it on his merits and not by being a victimization hustler.) - Author: Bruce Bawer
Gifted People quotes by Bruce Bawer
#16. In life," she wrote, "fantastically gifted people, people who are driven, can be too much to handle; they can be a pain. In plays, in opera, they're divine, and on the screen, where they can be seen in their perfection, and where we're even safer from them, they're more divine." In the fall of 1968 she found the - Author: Brian Kellow
Gifted People quotes by Brian Kellow
#17. All over the world there are enormous numbers of smart, even gifted, people who harbor a passion for science. But that passion is unrequited. Surveys suggest that some 95 percent of Americans are "scientifically illiterate." That's just the same fraction as those African Americans, almost all of them slaves, who were illiterate just before the Civil War - when severe penalties were in force for anyone who taught a slave to read. Of course there's a degree of arbitrariness about any determination of illiteracy, whether it applies to language or to science. But anything like 95 percent illiteracy is extremely serious. - Author: Carl Sagan
Gifted People quotes by Carl Sagan
#18. During 'Chicago Hope,' I never let directors talk to me, because I was so spoiled. I started off with people like Milos Forman, Sidney Lumet, James Lapine, unbelievably gifted people.

Gifted People quotes by Mandy Patinkin

Gifted People quotes by David Platt
#21. God is not about using the mighty but the willing. He is not into using amazing people, just ones who prepared to lay their lives down to him. God is not looking for extraordinary, exceptionally gifted people, just laid down lovers of Jesus who will carry his glory with transparency and not take it for themselves - Author: Heidi Baker
Gifted People quotes by Heidi Baker

That's how I see it. I lost my best friends in battles.. and I had to make decisions of life and death, of others and myself. - Author: Ariel Sharon
Gifted People quotes by Ariel Sharon
#25. Here it is, all at once: rightness.
Not the graffiti itself, even though it's undeniably spectacular, but this feeling of making plans and carrying them them through, of meeting people and getting to know them, of being asked to do something and saying Yes, of wanting something, asking for it, making it happen. - Author: Nina LaCour
Gifted People quotes by Nina LaCour
#26. With most people suicide is like Russian roulette. Only one chamber has a bullet. With the Lisbon girls, the gun was loaded. A bullet for family abuse. A bullet for genetic predisposition. A bullet for historical malaise. A bullet for inevitable momentum. The two other bullets are impossible to name, but that doesn't mean the chambers were empty. - Author: Jeffrey Eugenides
Gifted People quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#27. Early studies of sleep and dreaming were crucially dependent on waking subjects up during sleep to find out whether they are dreaming or not.

Gifted People quotes by Patricia Churchland
#28. It's hard in a monetary system to trust people. - Author: Jacque Fresco
Gifted People quotes by Jacque Fresco
#29. If hard things ultimately have a purpose, then they aren't so hard anymore. Therefore, I listed what I had learned: 1. It's easy to forget that people can think you think what you don't think. 2. Don't write when you're angry and under deadline, with time to test it only on friends who know what you mean, not on strangers who don't. 3. A writer's greatest reward is naming something unnamed that many people are feeling. A writer's greatest punishment is being misunderstood. The same words can do both. - Author: Gloria Steinem
Gifted People quotes by Gloria Steinem

Gifted People quotes by Rainn Wilson
#32. I think most people write from what they see in their own world, which is maybe why we so often see an African-American woman as the best friend, or the one you bring in when you need some sass. It's like we're put in a box. - Author: Tika Sumpter
Gifted People quotes by Tika Sumpter
#33. A lot of the people in Northern California and parts of Oregon have decided that we are not on the same page as San Francisco and Portland and Los Angeles. I don't know if six states is a solution because is Washington, D.C. and the rest of the country really going to give California 10 new senators? - Author: Doug LaMalfa
Gifted People quotes by Doug LaMalfa
#34. For many people the way to success is long and hard, because they do not understand Biblical
principles and the laws of the spirit. - Author: Sunday Adelaja
Gifted People quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#35. Some people make the mistake of confusing "submission" with "weakness", whereas it is anything but. Submission is a form of peaceful acceptance of the terms of the universe including the things we are currently unable to change or comprehend.
I accepted the fact that there are things beyond my limits. I can only see some parts, like floating fragments from a movie, but the bigger scheme is beyond my comprehension. - Author: Elif Shafak
Gifted People quotes by Elif Shafak

Gifted People quotes by Katie J. Davis

Gifted People quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#38. It seems that rather than abandon their worldview, many young people are abandoning their lives altogether. I am disturbed to see the number of suicides and suicide attempts by those between the ages of fourteen and twenty-five. Many of their suicide notes report they had lost meaning, purpose and a sense that life held any value.

This is no longer just about philosophy. This is about the very real lives we are all trying to make sense of here on Earth. - Author: Jon Morrison
Gifted People quotes by Jon Morrison
#39. Most of the people you read about being turned meet vamps in clubs or over the Internet ... Ew, did you ... ?"

Gifted People quotes by Shakieb Orgunwall

The desire to be taken seriously is precisely what compels people to follow the tried and true paths of knowledge production around which I would like to map a few detours. - Author: J. Jack Halberstam
Gifted People quotes by J. Jack Halberstam
#42. Roots is not just a saga of my family. It is the symbolic saga of a people. - Author: Alex Haley
Gifted People quotes by Alex Haley
#43. My sister's disposition was not naturally gregarious; circumstances favoured and fostered her tendency to seclusion; except to go to church or take a walk on the hills, she rarely crossed the threshold of home. Though her feeling for the people round was benevolent, intercourse with them she never sought; nor, with very few exceptions, ever experienced. And yet she knew them: knew their ways, their language, their family histories; she could hear of them with interest, and talk of them with detail, minute, graphic, and accurate; but with them, she rarely exchanged a word.

(On her sister, Emily) - Author: Charlotte Bronte
Gifted People quotes by Charlotte Bronte

Gifted People quotes by Bob Goff

Gifted People quotes by Blake Bailey

We need a vision that recognizes that we are at one of the great turning points in human history when the survival of our planet and the restoration of our humanity require a great sea change in our ecological, economic, political, and spiritual values. - Author: Grace Lee Boggs
Gifted People quotes by Grace Lee Boggs
#48. That was how a Salomon bond trader thought: He forgot whatever it was that he wanted to do for a minute and put his finger on the pulse of the market. If the market felt fidgety, if people were scared or desperate, he herded them like sheep into a corner, then made them pay for their uncertainty. He sat on the market until it puked gold coins. Then he worried about what he wanted to do. - Author: Michael Lewis
Gifted People quotes by Michael Lewis

Gifted People quotes by Wendy Borders Gauntner
#50. When things are easy a person doesn't really learn about himself. It's what a person does at the moment of his greatest struggle that shows him who he really is. Some people never get that moment. The U-Who is my moment. What I do now is what I am. - Author: Robert Kurson
Gifted People quotes by Robert Kurson
#51. I'm legitimately having more fun doing music, but at the same time I worked my whole life for baseball. If I had to pick, I would probably pick music. I just connect more with the fact that other people connect with that I'm doing so much. It's a much cooler thing than being good at sports. - Author: Mike Stud
Gifted People quotes by Mike Stud

Gifted People quotes by Thomas Hardy
#53. Adam delayed only a second longer before traversing into the uncertain future, crossing the hidden divide; the fabric separating worlds. He moved from the shadows that paralleled the town, where unseen lives existed alongside of unsuspecting, oblivious people. With his seemingly mundane act of taking one step forward, he effectively walked from myth to reality. - Author: J.M. Northup
Gifted People quotes by J.M. Northup
#54. As a matter of fact, no other language in the world has received such praise as the Lithuanian language. The garlands of high honour have been taken to Lithuanian people for inventing, elaborating, and introducing the most highly developed human speech with its beautiful and clear phonology. Moreover, according to comparative philology, the Lithuanian language is best qualified to represent the primitive Aryan civilization and culture. - Author: Immanuel Kant
Gifted People quotes by Immanuel Kant

2. "No matter how much money is spent on health care, the doctors and hospitas will argue that it is not enough"
3. "The last reform always failed - Author: T.R. Reid

#61. People, then, who are sad, but who can't let themselves feel sad, or express it, the sadness, I'm trying rather clunkily to say, these persons may strike someone who's sensitive as somehow just not quite right. Not quite there. Blank. Distant. Muted. Distant. Spacey was an American term we grew up with. Wooden. Deadened. Disconnected. Distant. Or they may drink alcohol or take other drugs. The drugs both blunt the real sadness and allow some skewed version of the sadness some sort of expression, like throwing someone through a living room window out into the flowerbeds she'd so very carefully repaired after the last incident. - Author: David Foster Wallace
Gifted People quotes by David Foster Wallace
#62. Bainbridge Island could never hide its glory, even under the cover of darkness. I watched from the window as the ferry loomed into Eagle Harbor, passing the island's pebble-covered shores and shake-shingled homes that clung courageously to the hillside. Glowing orange interiors beckoned, as if the people inside were making one extra place as they gathered around fireplaces to sip wine or hot cocoa. - Author: Sarah Jio
Gifted People quotes by Sarah Jio
#63. Every time I talk about 'The Shield' I kind of talk about it from three perspectives, as if I'm three people, because I'm a fan of the show. I'm in love with all the other characters and their journeys and their work. But then, as an actor, I love getting this kind of rich material and having to do it. As my character, did my journey finish? - Author: Benito Martinez
Gifted People quotes by Benito Martinez
#64. Some people have the coldest smiles, but have the tenderest hearts. And many have the most tender smiles, but carry the coldest hearts. You cannot judge a man by his smile, but you CAN judge a man by his heart. The smallest actions reveal the most about a hearts true color, so pay attention to them. Actions are the true words of the heart. - Author: Suzy Kassem
Gifted People quotes by Suzy Kassem
