#1. We have to get a crew together to meet up after school today."
"Ouch," Finn said. "Well, you've come to the right place."
They looked out across the cafeteria, where hundreds of their peers sat and ate, just waiting to be tapped for after-school labor.
"I guess I should get started," Megan said.
"What about Doug?" Finn asked.
"It's just a gut instinct, but I don't think he's going to be much help," Megan replied, walking backward. "Wish me luck."
"Good luck," Finn said with a smile. - Author: Kate Brian
Gut Instinct quotes by Kate Brian
#2. To the new 'Apprentice' candidates I would say to follow your gut instincts, be yourself and get ready to work hard for the next few months. Oh, and try to have some fun! - Author: Bill Rancic
Gut Instinct quotes by Bill Rancic
#3. They were properly mad in the Shakespearean sense, talking sense when you least expected it. In North London, where councillors once voted to change the name of the area to Nirvana, it is not unusual to walk the streets and be suddenly confronted by sage words from the chalkfaced, blue-lipped, or eyebrowless. From across the street or from the other end of a tube carriage they will use their schizophrenic talent for seeing connections in the random (for discerning the whole world in a grain of sand, for deriving narrative from nothing) to riddle you, to rhyme you, to strip you down, to tell you who you are and where you're going (usually Baker Street - the great majority of modernday seers travel the Metropolitan Line) and why. But as a city we are not appreciative of these people. Our gut instinct is that they intend to embarrass us, that they're out to shame us somehow as they lurch down the train aisle, bulbous-eyed and with carbuncled nose, preparing to ask us, inevitably, what we are looking at. What the fuck we are looking at. As a kind of preemptive defense mechanism, Londoners have learned not to look, never to look, to avoid eyes at all times so that the dreaded question "What you looking at?" and its pitiful, gutless, useless answer - "Nothing" - might be avoided. - Author: Zadie Smith
Gut Instinct quotes by Zadie Smith
#4. The possibilities and probabilities are all we have to work with in medicine, though. What we are drawn to in this imperfect science, what we in fact covet in our way, is the alterable moment-the fragile but crystalline opportunity for one's know-how, ability, or just gut instinct to change the course of another's life for the better. - Author: Atul Gawande
Gut Instinct quotes by Atul Gawande
#5. In the same way that I tend to make up my mind about people within thirty seconds of meeting them, I also make up my mind about whether a business proposal excites me within about thirty seconds of looking at it. I rely far more on gut instinct than researching huge amounts of statistics. - Author: Richard Branson
Gut Instinct quotes by Richard Branson
#6. I'm not worried about what's in fashion, what's not in fashion, what are the colors of the season. I go with my gut instinct because every time I haven't it's been a mistake. - Author: Victoria Beckham
Gut Instinct quotes by Victoria Beckham
#7. Your words don't match your vibe,
& im trusting my gut this time. - Author: Nikki Rowe
Gut Instinct quotes by Nikki Rowe
#8. Life - your gunna meet some two faced people, some bosses that make your soul cringe, some places you wished you'd never walked into ... But then you'll grow, you'll learn that your gut instinct isn't nieve, your boss can ' fuck it' because your dreams are more important and the places you walked into unaware of chaos, will bring you to places of perfect peace. Hold on, the struggle won't last forever. - Author: Nikki Rowe
Gut Instinct quotes by Nikki Rowe
#9. When I was a student and rushing to finish a project, my gut instinct was usually to keep adding all kinds of features. It's a way of papering over the fact that you haven't quite nailed your concept yet. - Author: Mike Krieger
Gut Instinct quotes by Mike Krieger
#10. Before religion got organized, faith in God meant trusting your intuition, your gut instinct, as divine. It meant always letting conscience be your guide. For believers, the whole world was charged with the grandeur of Gods and all of life was sacred. Those were the good old days. - Author: Karol Jackowski
Gut Instinct quotes by Karol Jackowski
#11. You can trust your gut instinct. Always. - Author: Ana Ortega
Gut Instinct quotes by Ana Ortega
#12. When your mind wants to bolt, but your heart hangs on, it is because you don't know with absolute certainty what the truth is. When you waste so much time on something that you want to believe is true, you begin to overthink things. Eventually, something obvious becomes twisted into something absurd, which keeps us from believing a simpler answer. Over time, you believe your own lies and fantasies to shield yourself from hurt, when following what is logical would have been the quickest way to healing. It is through your own self-imposed delusions that you lose your perspective. The world then becomes different to you when in fact you are different. Why? Because your own ego gets in the way. Everyone wants to feel special. Everyone wants to have faith in others. Everyone wants to believe in fairytales, happy endings and have all bad interactions with others explained. It is easier to sit in denial with your delusions and pray God will intervene, not realizing he has. He gave you commonsense and intuition, but you didn't like how it made you feel. This is what true mental illness really is: Following your gut instinct through hell because you want to prove you are right, either to yourself or others. You sacrifice choosing to do right, in order to avoid pain. However, you don't realize that you have been in pain for a really long time and believed this was how happiness felt. - Author: Shannon L. Alder
Gut Instinct quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#13. Whoa," Sadie murmured and took an involuntary step back. It had been centuries since she'd been this close to a werewolf in wolf form, and her gut instinct was to flee. Looking into those eyes though, Sadie knew she was safe. She licked her lips and folded her arms over her breasts in an effort to steady her nerves. "You're a lot bigger than I though you'd be."
"You're not going to tell me what big teeth I have, are you? Killian's growl stopped short ... - Author: Sara Humphreys
Gut Instinct quotes by Sara Humphreys
#14. When you feel something isn't right, you're probably right. Listen to your gut instinct, it's, sometimes, smarter than your heart. - Author: Zara Hairston
Gut Instinct quotes by Zara Hairston
#15. Always trust your gut instinct. There will come a time when you will understand, but for now trust God has a plan greater than you have ever imagined. - Author: Shannon L. Alder
Gut Instinct quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#16. I would definitely say I'm a feminist. To me, it just means being attentive and mindful. It's about equality and equal treatment. It feels like a gut instinct. - Author: Hattie Morahan
Gut Instinct quotes by Hattie Morahan
#17. Often I used my gut instinct to ask the questions and get the answers I thought the audience wanted to hear. Sometimes the interviewees said things that surprised even them. - Author: Phyllis George
Gut Instinct quotes by Phyllis George
#18. Gut instinct said she was bound to be up to her neck in trouble. She always was. Gut instinct was right - Author: Shehanne Moore
Gut Instinct quotes by Shehanne Moore
#19. Actors are trusting souls, and we must go by gut-level instinct, even after our agents and business managers weigh all the odds. - Author: Anne Archer
Gut Instinct quotes by Anne Archer
#20. There's my gut instinct: Don't rush. Don't force the issue. Let it play out. - Author: Rick Yancey
Gut Instinct quotes by Rick Yancey
#21. Your intuition won't fail you, the quest dear; is to silence your mind so you can feel your way home. - Author: Nikki Rowe
Gut Instinct quotes by Nikki Rowe
#22. Dance is a tough life (and a tougher way to make a living). Choreography is even more brutal because there is no way to carry our history forward. Our creations disappear the moment we finish performing them. It's tough to preserve a legacy, create a history for yourself and others. But I put all that aside and pursued my gut instinct anyway. I became my own rebellion. Going with your head makes it arbitrary. Going with your gut means you have no choice. - Author: Twyla Tharp
Gut Instinct quotes by Twyla Tharp
#23. I go by the gut. I might not appear to have any talent but I've got plenty of gut instinct. - Author: Haruki Murakami
Gut Instinct quotes by Haruki Murakami
#24. You just go with your gut instinct, because your gut is smarter than your heart. - Author: Gerard Way
Gut Instinct quotes by Gerard Way
#25. I remember when I read Walter, for example, six years ago now, I said, "This is the role for me." I said that to my family. There was something there that I knew was absolutely right, and that was just based on the character. That's when gut instinct comes into play. I know there are certain things I won't do. - Author: John Noble
Gut Instinct quotes by John Noble
#26. When your safety is in question follow your intuition. It will help you balance along the precipice between vulnerability and adventure. - Author: Gina Greenlee
Gut Instinct quotes by Gina Greenlee
#27. Learn to let your intuition-gut instinct-tell you when the food, the relationship, the job isn't good for you (and conversely, when what you're doing is just right). - Author: Oprah Winfrey
Gut Instinct quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#28. Highly intelligent and well-informed people disagree on every political issue. Therefore, intelligence and knowledge are useless for making decisions, because if any of that stuff helped, then all the smart people would have the same opinions. So use your "gut instinct" to make voting choices. That is exactly like being clueless, but with the added advantage that you'll feel as if your random vote preserved democracy. - Author: Scott Adams
Gut Instinct quotes by Scott Adams
#29. Sometimes gut instinct is what determines the direction we should take. - Author: Brenda Novak
Gut Instinct quotes by Brenda Novak
#30. If you feel something artistic, you need to get it out of you, do it. You gotta get out and play in front of people. You can't stay in the bedroom, get out sooner rather than later. Use your gut instinct. - Author: Chris Wyse
Gut Instinct quotes by Chris Wyse
#31. Intelligence is not limited to neural networks, Merrill. Indeed, half of human intelligence resides in our bodies outside our skulls ... The genius of the irrational ... This is the body's intelligence, not the mind's. Every living cell possess it ... [the] indomitable will to survive. - Author: David Marusek
Gut Instinct quotes by David Marusek
#32. By all means listen to other people's advice, but when in doubt go with your gut instinct. - Author: Steve Pavlina
Gut Instinct quotes by Steve Pavlina
#33. Your words don't match your vibe,
& im trusting my gut this time. - Author: Nikki Rowe
Gut Instinct quotes by Nikki Rowe
#34. I'm a mathematician by education, but I have this other thing. A gut instinct. - Author: Glen Taylor
Gut Instinct quotes by Glen Taylor
#35. Work hard, be patient, and be a sponge while learning your business. Learn how to take criticism. Follow your gut instincts and don't compromise. - Author: Simon Cowell
Gut Instinct quotes by Simon Cowell
#36. Why did everyone keep demanding "evidence" and "facts"? I swear, cop and courtroom dramas were ruining the good name of gut instinct. - Author: Chloe Neill
Gut Instinct quotes by Chloe Neill
#37. I act with my gut instincts. - Author: Alanna Ubach
Gut Instinct quotes by Alanna Ubach
#38. Having a gut instinct that told me how to be a moral person might be evolutionarily handy. On the other hand, emotional moral judgment also enables people to do really horrible things to each other, like lynching or "honor" killings, and justify them by calling them "moral." Because sociopaths don't experience morality emotionally, I would argue that we are freed to be more rational and more tolerant. There is something to be said for the impartiality of pure reason - religion-created mass hysteria among the supposedly mentally healthy populace has resulted in much worse damage and carnage in the world than anything sociopaths have caused. (Although I imagine that there may sometimes be sociopaths at the head of it all, whipping up the masses to do their bidding.) - Author: M.E. Thomas
Gut Instinct quotes by M.E. Thomas
#39. Leaders are people who can discern the inevitable and act accordingly. When people talk about business acumen, discernment is a big part of it. It's a bit like gut instinct, but a little more developed. - Author: Donald Trump
Gut Instinct quotes by Donald Trump
#40. I miss you, Logan." I touched my fingers to my lips, then to the forehead of the Keeley Brothers skull. "I miss you so much."
Missing Logan was an emptiness, an ache so dull and deep, it was a permanent part of me. I would never truly get over his death, but someday I would find peace.
Missing Zachary, on the other hand, was a searing knife in the gut. I burned to save him from the horrible fates I imagined, and the need to be in his arms again set my skin ablaze.
One boy was gone forever. The other was gone now. - Author: Jeri Smith-Ready
Gut Instinct quotes by Jeri Smith-Ready
#41. Egon Schiele is my favorite painter. There's just something about art - photography, painting, music, plays - whatever you see, sometimes there's a gut reaction that's more important or more visceral than what your brain is thinking about. You can't explain that reaction. It's like what happens when you fall in love. - Author: Albert Hammond, Jr.
Gut Instinct quotes by Albert Hammond, Jr.
#42. People place so much value on thought, but feeling is as essential. I want to read books that make me laugh and cry and fear and hope and punch the air in triumph. I want a book to hug me or grab me by the scruff of my neck. I don't even mind if it punches me in the gut. Because we are here to feel. - Author: Matt Haig
Gut Instinct quotes by Matt Haig
#43. What's going on, Helen?" Polydeuces came up behind us, followed closely by Castor. They'd been working hard down among the oarsmen again, and it was no pleasure to stand too near them on that windless day.
"The usual, from the look of things," Castor said, glancing at Milo's sagging body at the rail. He gave the boy an encouraging pat on the back. "Try to drink something, even if you can't keep your food down, lad," he said. "Shall I bring you a little watered wine?"
Milo lifted his sallow, haggard face and tried to thank my brother for his kindness but had to turn away quickly and spew over the side again.
Polydeuces sighed. "How can he still do that? I haven't seen him eat a bite of food since we boarded. You'd think his gut would be empty by now."
"Maybe it's a sacred mystery and only the gods know the answer," Castor said, smiling. "Like the horn of the she-goat who suckled the infant Zeus, the horn he broke off and blessed as soon as he was king of the gods so that it poured out a never-ending stream of food and drink."
"I always thought it was a strange way to thank the poor beast, breaking off one of her horns, Polydeuces said. "But it's not my place to question the gods." He, too, patted Milo's shivering back and added, "So, boy, how does it feel to be pouring out a never-ending stream of--?"
"Stop that!" I scowled at my brothers as I shooed them away from Milo. "How can you make such jokes in front of him?"
"To be honest, the only t - Author: Esther M. Friesner

#44. Some instinct older than civilization was telling her to run, to flee.
She didn't move. - Author: L.J.Smith
Gut Instinct quotes by L.J.Smith
#45. If you need help or advice, ask for it, but don't worry too much about hurting other people's feelings by not doing what they say. If your gut says no, trust it. Do what seems right. - Author: Ariel Gore
Gut Instinct quotes by Ariel Gore
#46. A process of self-deception to satisfy and summarily persuade yourself of righteousness. What one among us has any excuse but self-love? We do not create or confess a morality that is convenient, that lends itself to growth, and remains simple, that allows transgression without excuse or punishment. It would be wise and commonsense to do so, whatever the state of affairs in your mind. Nature eventually denies that which it affirms: Through permanent association with the same moral code we help desire to transgress. Desire of those things denied, the more you restrict the more you sin, but desire equally desires preservation of moral instinct, so desire is its own conflict (and weakly enough). Have no fear, the Bull of earth has long had nothing to do with your unclean conscience, your stagnant ideas of morality. The microbe alone would seem without fear! - Author: Austin Osman Spare
Gut Instinct quotes by Austin Osman Spare
#47. Rejection, though
it could make the loss of someone you weren't even that crazy about feel gut wrenching and world ending. - Author: Deb Caletti
Gut Instinct quotes by Deb Caletti

Gut Instinct quotes by Eugenia Sheppard
#49. You must believe in your own instincts and your own instincts at any particular time and believe that they were the right ones for any given situation. So, there's no point ever of kind of regretting something because you can't properly remember the exact circumstances in which you were playing out this particular scene. You have to believe in your intuition and your instinct at that moment. - Author: Dominic Cooper
Gut Instinct quotes by Dominic Cooper
#50. You know me, Bobby--I have an instinct for crime. Where evil flourishes, there I will be, on my self-appointed mission to stamp it out. - Author: Sara Paretsky
Gut Instinct quotes by Sara Paretsky
#51. This isn't going to work," Justine murmured. "It is going to work ," I told her, keeping my tone confident. "We'll breeze right in. The Rack will be with us." Justine glanced at me with an arched eyebrow. "The Rack?" "The Rack is more than just boobs, Justine," I told her soberly. "It's an energy field created by all living boobs. It surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds the galaxy together." Andi started giggling. "You're insane." "But functionally so," I said, and adjusted myself to round out a little better. "Just let go your conscious self and act on instinct." Justine stared blankly at me for a second. Then her face lightened and she let out a little laugh. "The Rack will be with us?" I couldn't stop myself from cracking a smile. "Always. - Author: Jim Butcher
Gut Instinct quotes by Jim Butcher

Gut Instinct quotes by Kathe Koja
#56. The mind is "ashamed" of the blood. And the blood is destroyed by the mind, actually. Hence palefaces. - Author: D.H. Lawrence
Gut Instinct quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#57. You have an instinct, Sophie, that's how," said Howl. "Nothing is safe from you. If I were to court a girl who lived on an iceberg in the middle of the ocean, sooner or later - probably sooner - I'd look up to see you swooping overhead on a broomstick. In fact, by now I'd be disappointed in you if I didn't see you. - Author: Diana Wynne Jones
Gut Instinct quotes by Diana Wynne Jones
#58. A tiny torrent of diarrhea had popped the offending dart right back out of his gut. - Author: Monique Happy
Gut Instinct quotes by Monique Happy

Gut Instinct quotes by George Gordon Byron
#62. You only have to view life in a positive way. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Gut Instinct quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#63. Was she conscious of her talent? Hardly. If asked about her cooking, Grandma would look down at her hands which some glorious instinct sent on journeys to be gloved in flour, or to plumb disencumbered turkeys, wrist-deep in search of their animal souls. Her gray eyes blinked from spectacles warped by forty years of oven blasts and blinded with strewing of pepper and sage, so she sometimes flung cornstarch over steaks, amazingly tender, succulent steaks! And sometimes dropped apricots into meat loaves, cross-pollinated meats, herbs, fruits, vegetables with no prejudice, no tolerance for recipe or formula, save that at the final moment of delivery, mouths watered, blood thundered in response. Her hands then, like the hands of Great-grandma before her, were Grandma's mystery, delight, and life. She looked at them in astonishment, but let them live their life in the way they must absolutely lead it. - Author: Ray Bradbury
Gut Instinct quotes by Ray Bradbury
#64. It's not your instincts that are the problem. It's your tendency to drown them in a bottle. - Author: Sabrina Jeffries
Gut Instinct quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#65. Nature has willed that man should, by himself, produce everything that goes beyond the mechanical ordering of his animal existence, and that he should partake of no other happiness or perfection than that which he himself, independently of instinct, has created by his own reason. - Author: Immanuel Kant
Gut Instinct quotes by Immanuel Kant
#66. Still rarer is the man who thinks habitually, who applies reason, rather than habit pattern, to all his activity. Unless he masques himself, his is a dangerous life; he is regarded as queer, untrustworthy, subversive of public morals; he is a pink monkey among brown monkeys
a fatal mistake. Unless the pink monkey can dye himself brown before he is caught.
The brown monkey's instinct to kill is correct; such men are dangerous to all monkey customs.
Rarest of all is the man who can and does reason at all times, quickly, accurately, inclusively, despite hope or fear or bodily distress, without egocentric bias or thalmic disturbance, with correct memory, with clear distinction between fact, assumption, and non-fact. - Author: Robert A. Heinlein
Gut Instinct quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#67. Intuition is a strange instinct that tells a woman she is right, whether she is or not. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Gut Instinct quotes by Oscar Wilde
#68. If things feel off, they are. If your gut and your mind are throwing up the timeouts begging you to listen, then listen. - Author: Kelton Wright
Gut Instinct quotes by Kelton Wright
#69. It is essential for the photographer to know the effect of his lenses. The lens is his eye, and it makes or ruins his pictures. A feeling for composition is a great asset. I think it is very much a matter of instinct. It can perhaps be developed, but I doubt if it can be learned. To achieve his best work, the young photographer must discover what really excites him visually. He must discover his own world. - Author: Bill Brandt
Gut Instinct quotes by Bill Brandt
#70. A few strong instincts and a few plain rules suffice us - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Gut Instinct quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#71. On trial were two men, one in a plaid shirt, and the other with a long, ZZ Top-style beard. They looked intimated by the crowd that had turned out, even though Plaid Shirt stood six foot four. He was the main perpetrator, charged with animal cruelty. He had brought his young son along during the bear killing for which he was on trial.
The main reason the state managed to bring charges is that the hunters had made a videotape of their gruesome acts. The state trooper who confiscated the video couldn't even testify at the time of the trial, he was so emotionally overcome.
Then they showed the video in court, and I understood why. ZZ Top and Plaid Shirt cornered the bear cub. In order to preserve the integrity of the pelt, they attempted to kill the cub by stabbing it in the eyes.
It was absolutely gut-wrenching to watch. The bear struggled for its life, but Plaid Shirt kept thrusting his knife, moving back as the animal twisted frantically away, then moving forward to stab again. The bear cub screamed, and it sounded eerily as though the bear was actually crying "Mama," over and over. Plaid Shirt and ZZ Top sat unfazed in court. The bear screamed, "Mama, mama, mama." From my place in the gallery, I watched as a towering man in a police uniform burst into tears and walked out of the courtroom. At the end of the video, Plaid Shirt brought his nine-year-old son over to stand triumphantly next to the dead bear cub.
"Clearly, you deserve jail," the judge told Pla - Author: Terri Irwin

Gut Instinct quotes by Colin Morgan
#73. Intuition is more than knowledge, and truth comes pure from the heart. - Author: Don Bradley
Gut Instinct quotes by Don Bradley
#74. Humans are tribal. We need to belong to groups. We crave bonds and attachments, which is why we love clubs, teams, fraternities, family. Almost no one is a hermit. Even monks and friars belong to orders. But the tribal instinct is not just an instinct to belong. It is also an instinct to exclude. - Author: Amy Chua
Gut Instinct quotes by Amy Chua
#75. It's the moment when something happens not just deep among the trees but also in the dark interior of the human heart, for the heart, too, has its night and its wild surges, as strong an instinct for the hunt as a wolf or a stag. The human night is filled with the crouching forms of dreams, desires, vanities, self-interest, mad love, envy, and the thirst for revenge, as the desert night conceals the puma, the hawk and the jackal. - Author: Sandor Marai
Gut Instinct quotes by Sandor Marai
#76. Just as television didn't put an end to radio or the movies (to say nothing of books), I don't think e-books will put an end to hard copies, even for someone like me who loves technology and does not fetishize the physical medium of books. ~ Steven Pinker, author of The Lauguage Instinct, How the Mind Works The Blank Slate and The Stuff of Thought: Language as a Window into Human Nature. - Author: Leah Price
Gut Instinct quotes by Leah Price
