#1. It is not a question of living dangerously. That formula is too arrogant, too presumptuous. I don't care much for bull-fighters. It's not the danger I love. I know what I love. It is life itself. - Author: Antoine De Saint Exupery
Living Dangerously quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#2. 'Years of Living Dangerously' is a wonderful opportunity to reach a lot of people with the story and importance of climate change in our lives; in recent history, there's no bigger threat to the quality of human life than what is taking place right now in respect of climate change. - Author: Harrison Ford
Living Dangerously quotes by Harrison Ford
#3. Isn't there something in living dangerously? - Author: Aldous Huxley
Living Dangerously quotes by Aldous Huxley
#4. She wore a tan robe and headscarf, the clothes of a local... but didn't feel like a market regular. She moved slowly and gazed at everything with a child's wonder. Her eyes were large and clear, her hair as black as midnight. She had a warm smile on her pretty lips and was obviously murmuring 'hellos' and 'excuse mes' to people who really didn't care or want to talk. She walked with the grace of a cloud in the wind, like her body weighed nothing at all, and held her head high with easy dignity. Easy.
Aladdin felt his heart contract. He had never seen her- or anyone like her- before.
When the girl adjusted her scarf, she revealed an intricate diadem in her hair that had a ridiculously sized emerald in it.
'Ah, a rich girl, out for a day of shopping in the market without her servants. Living dangerously, playing hooky. - Author: Liz Braswell
Living Dangerously quotes by Liz Braswell
#5. I have nothing to complain of. For three days I have tramped the desert, have known the pangs of thirst, have followed false scents in the sand, have pinned my faith on the dew. I have struggled to rejoin my kind, whose very existence on earth I had forgotten. These are the cares of men alive in every fibre, and I cannot help thinking them more important than the fretful choosing of a night-club in which to spend the evening. Compare the one life with the other, and all things considered this is luxury! I have no regrets. I have gambled and lost. It was all in the day's work. At least I have had the unforgettable taste of the sea on my lips.

I am not talking about living dangerously. Such words are meaningless to me. The toreador does not stir me to enthusiasm. It is not danger I love. I know what I love. It is life. - Author: Antoine De Saint Exupery
Living Dangerously quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#6. I made a boy's mistake, common enough, of thinking that real life was knowing many things and many people, living dangerously in faraway places, crossing the sea, or starting a power company on the Columbia River, a steamship line in Bolivia. - Author: Mark Helprin
Living Dangerously quotes by Mark Helprin
#7. She checked her Fitbit again and saw her pulse was now up to one-twenty. She chugged down the rest of her latte, anyway. Living dangerously. - Author: Stephen King
Living Dangerously quotes by Stephen King
#8. Meaning and morality of One's life come from within oneself. Healthy, strong individuals seek self expansion by experimenting and by living dangerously. Life consists of an infinite number of possibilities and the healthy person explores as many of them as posible. Religions that teach pity, self-contempt, humility, self-restraint and guilt are incorrect. The good life is ever changing, challenging, devoid of regret, intense, creative and risky. - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
Living Dangerously quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#9. Mistakes are what make life worth
living dangerously. If it weren't for our mistakes then our victories
wouldn't taste nearly as sweet. - Author: Justin Qwits
Living Dangerously quotes by Justin Qwits
#10. When I began we did not really have a lot of First Amendment law. It is really surprising to think of it this way, but a lot of the law - most of the law that relates to the First Amendment freedom of the press in America - is really within living memory. - Author: Floyd Abrams
Living Dangerously quotes by Floyd Abrams
#11. I can scarcely manage to scribble a tolerable English letter. I know that I am not a scholar, but meantime I am aware that no man living knows better than I do the habits of our birds. - Author: John James Audubon
Living Dangerously quotes by John James Audubon
#12. Another great mistake is this; another understandable error is this: living to live the footprints of others when you have your own foot! Live your footprints! You were born unique! If possible, put the shoes of others, (they must fit you however) but don't walk as they walked and as much as possible, don't leave the same footprints they left except you were born to be like them or you can change the face of their footprints into a unique artifact! - Author: Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Living Dangerously quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#13. I had in mind going worse than waterboarding. It's enough. We have right now a country that's under siege. It's under siege from a people, from - we're like living in medieval times. If I have it to do and if it's up to me, I would absolutely bring back waterboarding. And if it's going to be tougher than waterboarding, I would bring that back, too. - Author: Donald Trump
Living Dangerously quotes by Donald Trump
#14. It was a real treat when he'd read me Daisy Miller out loud. But we'd reached the point in our relationship when, in a straight choice between him and Henry James, I'd have taken Henry James any day even if Henry James were dead and not much of a one for the girls when living, either. - Author: Angela Carter
Living Dangerously quotes by Angela Carter
#15. It was easy to be good and kind in times of plenty. The trying times were the moments that defined a man.
And love? Love was something that did much to change a person. It brought joy as it brought suffering, and in turn brought about those moments that defined one's character. Love gave life to the lifeless. It was the greatest of all living powers.
But, as with all things, love had a dark side to it. - Author: Renee Ahdieh
Living Dangerously quotes by Renee Ahdieh
#16. Less thinking, more living. - Author: S.R. Crawford
Living Dangerously quotes by S.R. Crawford
#17. Addiction is a disease - a treatable disease - and it needs to be understood. - Author: Nora D. Volkow
Living Dangerously quotes by Nora D. Volkow
#18. being likeable isn't just about social media or business - it's about living life, to its fullest. - Author: Dave Kerpen
Living Dangerously quotes by Dave Kerpen
#19. 1:92

Now I will observe the nature of this being alive in the different ways we are. Essence can be known only in a living example. People are often dazzled by form because essence shines so in its qualities. Feelings of health and feelings of illness are not part of my meaning here. The green world, new friendships, discoveries, circumstances, the feel of water, our delight in the human body and its imaginings, these are areas where essence thrives. How we recognize anyone's presence, how people's lives register in the body, how soul goes to its guidance and agrees to the work it's given. Try to be more conscious of these living abilities, and be happy. - Author: Bahauddin
Living Dangerously quotes by Bahauddin
#20. Five minutes before Julian arrived, they might be slouched in the living room
curtains drawn, dinner simmering on chafing dishes in the kitchen, everyone tugging at collars and dull-eyed with fatigue
but the instant the doorbell rang their spines would straighten, conversation would snap to life, the very wrinkles would fall from their clothes. - Author: Donna Tartt
Living Dangerously quotes by Donna Tartt
#21. We devote the activity of our youth to revelry and the decrepitude of our old age to repentance: and we finish the farce by bequeathing our dead bodies to the chancel, which when living, we interdicted from the church. - Author: Charles Caleb Colton
Living Dangerously quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#22. Trusting in Something Other Than God Another way you Edge God Out is when you trust in something other than the character and unconditional love of God as your source of security and self-worth. When you put your sense of security and self-worth in your intellect, your position, your performance, your possessions, or your business and personal contacts, you're counting on things that are at-risk and temporary. Instead, you must place your trust in that which is sure and eternal: God's care for you and the wisdom He provides about living in harmony with the rest of His creation. - Author: Kenneth H. Blanchard
Living Dangerously quotes by Kenneth H. Blanchard
#23. Advance money is really a delusion, that is to say, I get no more until it is paid out in sales, but still, living from hand to mouth and day to day as I do, a nickel in the hand is more useful than the same nickel next year. What do I know about next year? I've never been there. I don't know any one who has. - Author: Katherine Anne Porter
Living Dangerously quotes by Katherine Anne Porter
#24. It was generally agreed that a coffin-size studio on Avenue D was preferable to living in one of the boroughs. Moving from one Brooklyn or Staten Island neighborhood to another was fine, but unless you had children to think about, even the homeless saw it as a step down to leave Manhattan. Customers quitting the island for Astoria or Cobble Hill would claim to welcome the change of pace, saying it would be nice to finally have a garden or live a little closer to the airport. They'd put a good face one it, but one could always detect an underlying sense of defeat. The apartments might be bigger and cheaper in other places, but one could never count on their old circle of friend making the long trip to attend a birthday party. Even Washington Heights was considered a stretch. People referred to it as Upstate New York, though it was right there in Manhattan. - Author: David Sedaris
Living Dangerously quotes by David Sedaris
#25. Treating everyone she met like family, and burying needless critism of others so deep beneath the soil of everyday living that only kindness ever saw the light. - Author: Jason F. Wright
Living Dangerously quotes by Jason F. Wright
#26. Calling on the Lord's name solves all our problems. If you are filled with sorrow and worry, ... are disappointed, discouraged, or distracted, ... are weak [or] ... strong, [call on the Lord]. By calling you receive and take the living water. - Author: Witness Lee
Living Dangerously quotes by Witness Lee
#27. And now at last authentic word I bring,
Witnessed by every dead and living thing;
Good tidings of great joy for you, for all:
There is no God; no Fiend with names divine
Made us and tortures us; if we must pine,
It is to satiate no Being's gall.

It was the dark delusion of a dream,
That living Person conscious and supreme,
Whom we must curse for cursing us with life;
Whom we must curse because the life he gave
Could not be buried in the quiet grave,
Could not be killed by poison or the knife.

This little life is all we must endure,
The grave's most holy peace is ever sure,
We fall asleep and never wake again;
Nothing is of us but the mouldering flesh,
Whose elements dissolve and merge afresh
In earth, air, water, plants, and other men.

We finish thus; and all our wretched race
Shall finish with its cycle, and give place
To other beings with their own time-doom:
Infinite aeons ere our kind began;
Infinite aeons after the last man
Has joined the mammoth in earth's tomb and womb. - Author: James Thomson
Living Dangerously quotes by James  Thomson
#28. Life is other, always there,
further off, beyond you and
beyond me, always on the horizon,
life which unlives us and makes us strangers,
that invents our face and wears it away - Author: Octavio Paz
Living Dangerously quotes by Octavio Paz
#29. I've always thought anyone can make money. Making a life worth living, that's the real test. - Author: Robert Fulghum
Living Dangerously quotes by Robert Fulghum
#30. You can't love a person till you know him or her inside out, until you've lived with them and shared experience: sadness, joy, living - you've got to share living before you can find love. Being in love doesn't last, but you can find love to take its place. - Author: Stan Barstow
Living Dangerously quotes by Stan Barstow
#31. He that doth not as other men do, but endeavoureth that which ought to be done, shall thereby rather incur peril than preservation; for whoso laboureth to be sincerely perfect and good shall necessarily perish, living among men that are generally evil. - Author: Walter Raleigh
Living Dangerously quotes by Walter Raleigh
#32. Want, there is nothing you can ask for, there is nothing you can need in time or in eternity, there is nothing living, nothing dying, there is nothing in this world, nothing in the next world, there is nothing now, nothing at the resurrection-morning, nothing in heaven which is not contained in this text - I will never leave thee, nor forsake - Author: Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Living Dangerously quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#33. Our path through life is strewn with many such sad memories: and were we to brood upon them always we could not find the heart to go on bravely with our work among the living ... therefore, I will not linger on the past. I will not let any gloomy moralising intrude ... - Author: James Joyce
Living Dangerously quotes by James Joyce
#34. Dragging out life to the last possible second is not living to the best effect. The nearer the bone, the sweeter the meat. The best of life, Passworthy, lies nearest to the edge of death. - Author: H.G.Wells
Living Dangerously quotes by H.G.Wells
#35. I am convinced--truly convinced-- that 99% of living is useless. The only--and I mean the ONLY--part of life that is worth anything, is the part where we love a few people in our lives, and to what degree we are able to love them, how much we are able to give, how much of our hearts we are able to put into it. Time moves fast forward; meanwhile, we spend that time on making money, chasing dreams, building names for ourselves, achieving stuff that we want to achieve...time moves fast forward and instead of standing in moments with a few people that we love, we run fast forward with it! We forget how to love a few people given to us to love, we forget how to stay, we forget how to feel, we forget, we forget, we forget, so we can run towards death, leaving behind a house perhaps; kids perhaps; a bank account hopefully; a name worth remembering maybe. But did we love? Did you love? Did you stay? Did you love with all of your heart? Did you? Will you? - Author: C. JoyBell C.
Living Dangerously quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#36. Writers are solitaries by vocation and necessity. I sometimes think the test is not so much talent, which is not as rare as people think, but purpose or vocation, which manifests in part as the ability to endure a lot of solitude and keep working. Before writers are writers they are readers, living in books, through books, in the lives of others that are also the heads of others, in that act that is so intimate and yet so alone. - Author: Rebecca Solnit
Living Dangerously quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#37. Am I the only one who secretly hopes that the Curiosity rover will be swallowed up by a giant alien worm living just below Mars's surface? - Author: Victoria Laurie
Living Dangerously quotes by Victoria Laurie
#38. Real choices – the ones that changed you and shaped you – were never made with the head, but on the beat of a heart that saw a future it couldn't live without. - Author: Dianna Hardy
Living Dangerously quotes by Dianna Hardy
#39. One thing living in Japan did for me was to make me feel that what is left out of a work of art is as important as, if not more important than, what is put in. - Author: Katherine Paterson
Living Dangerously quotes by Katherine Paterson
#40. A dream is a divine prophecy. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Living Dangerously quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#41. Life, for me, is living among my friends. - Author: Madame De Stael
Living Dangerously quotes by Madame De Stael
#42. Do not get a job for a living. Rather, get work - Author: Sunday Adelaja
Living Dangerously quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#43. Why do I care about all the wrong things, and nothing at all for the right ones? Or, to tip it another way: how can I see so clearly that everything I love or care about is illusion, and yet - for me, anyway - all that's worth living for lies in that charm? - Author: Donna Tartt
Living Dangerously quotes by Donna Tartt
#44. I'm more careful about my hands than about what I eat and most anything else, because my hands have been my living. My hands have been able to help me learn. My hands have taken me around the world. So I'm very proud of my hands. - Author: B.B. King
Living Dangerously quotes by B.B. King
#45. I am living proof that money cannot buy friendship. - Author: Doris Duke
Living Dangerously quotes by Doris Duke
#46. There are so many ways to make a living that don't involve hiding in bushes opposite houses of 18-year-old girls with a camera in your hand. - Author: Jamie Dornan
Living Dangerously quotes by Jamie Dornan
#47. Nature in her creative dreaming, dreamt the same thing both here and there, and if one spoke of imitation, then certainly it had to be reciprocal. Should one take the children of the soil as models because they possessed the depth of organic reality, whereas the ice flowers were mere external phenomena? But as phenomena, they were the result of an interplay of matter no less complex than that found in plants. If I understood our friendly host correctly, what concerned him was the unity of animate and so-called inanimate nature, the idea that we sin against the latter if the boundary we draw between the two spheres is too rigid, when in reality it is porous, since there is no elementary capability that is reserved exclusively for living creatures or that the biologist could not likewise study on inanimate models. - Author: Thomas Mann
Living Dangerously quotes by Thomas Mann
#48. The world is sown with good; but unless I turn my glad thoughts into practical living and till my own field. I cannot reap a kernel of the good. - Author: Helen Keller
Living Dangerously quotes by Helen Keller
