Tis looking downward makes one dizzy. ~ Robert Browning
Looking Downward quotes by Robert Browning
I think looking forward will be better than looking back. ~ Erin Morgenstern
Looking Downward quotes by Erin Morgenstern
You can get lost on your way home. You can get lost looking for love. You can get lost between jobs. You can get lost looking for God. However it happens, take heart. Others before you have found a way in the wilderness, where there are as many angels as there are wild beasts, and plenty of other lost people too. All it takes is one of them to find you. All it takes is you to find one of them. However it happens, you could do worse than to kneel down and ask a blessing, remembering how many knees have kissed this altar before you. ~ Barbara Brown Taylor
Looking Downward quotes by Barbara Brown Taylor
When you put more money in the pockets of working families, they spend it on groceries, gas, school supplies, and other goods and services. And that helps businesses grow and create jobs. So many forward-looking employers, large and small, understand this. ~ Thomas Perez
Looking Downward quotes by Thomas Perez
I had never climbed a mountain, but standing at the bottom, looking at the summit, thinking, "How the fuck am I going to make it?" was pointless. ~ Grace G. Payge
Looking Downward quotes by Grace G. Payge
It was us they were talking about, with the objectivity of businessmen completing a routine transaction. In Barrett there wasn't even the hint of remorse or conscience. Some folks, they say, are born incapable of those things. Often they behave beyond suspicion, those sick people, until it's too late. Sometimes they're good-looking, charming, intelligent. Maybe they liked to pull the wings off flies more than other kids. But boys will be boys. If they served in the Army they made lousy soldiers, complaining and griping all the time about discipline, until they got a taste of combat. They often won medals, then, and were afraid but didn't go stiff and inadequate with fear like some of their buddies. They felt above the crowd. They were arrogant. Laws didn't apply to them. They could kill you with an absolute lack of concern if it suited them. They were called psychopathic personalities, P.P.'s, and Barrett was one of them.

It looked as if we were going to die. ~ Stephen Marlowe
Looking Downward quotes by Stephen Marlowe
I received some really bad news. I'm not okay."
A bolt of terror slashed through me. She had some sort of disease, I could tell. She had cancer. I was sure of it. I had a vision of Carol Kingsly in her hospital bed, her limbs withered, her head shaved, looking up at me with sunken eyes. Gad. Looking up at me with the expectation that I would care for her. Me. Somehow now she was my responsibility? We had only been going out for a couple of weeks, I didn't even like her all that much, and still I was on the hook? What were the rules on that? And with whom could I lodge my appeal? ~ William Lashner
Looking Downward quotes by William Lashner
When I felt like I was looking down the barrel of nothing on the horizon it was hard for me. ~ Greta Gerwig
Looking Downward quotes by Greta Gerwig
He tears apart faces and puts them back together whole, like I would a piece of music. I could play it a hundred ways, imbue it with a different emotion every time and try to find the truth of it. He does that with faces, except he's not putting the truth in, he's drawing it out. He's looking for the truth of me. I wonder if he'll find it, and if he does, maybe he can show me where it is again. ~ Katja Millay
Looking Downward quotes by Katja Millay
As a chamber hung round about with looking-glasses represents the face upon every turn, thus all the world doth the mercy and the bounty of God; though that be visible, yet it discovers an invisible God and his invisible properties. ~ Anthony Burgess
Looking Downward quotes by Anthony Burgess
At the end of the first Halloween, when I shot 6 bullets into Michael Myers, John Carpenter said, Let's get a shot of you looking out of the window and seeing no one lying there. ~ Donald Pleasence
Looking Downward quotes by Donald Pleasence
When I worked in a second-hand bookshop - so easily pictured, if you don't work in one, as a kind of paradise where charming old gentlemen browse eternally among calf-bound folios - the thing that chiefly struck me was the rarity of really bookish people. Our shop had an exceptionally interesting stock, yet I doubt whether ten per cent of our customers knew a good book from a bad one. First edition snobs were much commoner than lovers of literature, but oriental students haggling over cheap textbooks were commoner still, and vague-minded women looking for birthday presents for their nephews were commonest of all. ~ George Orwell
Looking Downward quotes by George Orwell
For a moment, we all just stared out the window at the crowds. "I'm reading a good book now," Obama said. "It reminds you, the ability to tell stories about who we are is what makes us different from animals. We're just chimps without it." He described how all civilization, religion, nations were rooted in stories, which could be harnessed for good or bad. Obama's tendency to take the long view was getting even more pronounced in his last year in office. But in his own way, he was also telling me that everything was okay, that this was now just one more subject in our endless conversation about everything.
"What's the book?" I asked, looking for something to grab on to.
"It's called Sapiens. You should check it out." Perhaps sensing that this was sensitive terrain, he changed the subject. ~ Ben Rhodes
Looking Downward quotes by Ben  Rhodes
A face stared up at her from the mirror beside her hand. Was that really what she looked like? Was that really what she looked like, all sharp lines and huge silver-grey eyes? Certainly, no one would ever call those features beautiful, Jame thought ruefully; but were they really enough like a boy's to have fooled that old man the alley? Well, maybe with that long black hair out of sight under a cap. It was a very young face and a defiant one, she thought with a odd sense of detachment, but frightened, too. And those extraordinary eyes ... what memories lived in them that she could not share? Stranger, where have you been she asked silently. What have you seen? The thin lips locked in their secrets.
"Ahhh!" Jame said in sudden disgust, tossing away the mirror. Fool, to be obsessed with a past she couldn't even remember. But it was all behind her now. ~ P.C. Hodgell
Looking Downward quotes by P.C. Hodgell
What happens if someone else has my eyes, and they start looking at stuff I don't like? I don't like the idea of that. ~ Karl Pilkington
Looking Downward quotes by Karl Pilkington
I hate you!" I screamed at Fang. Tucking my wings in, I aimed downward,
diving toward the ground at more than two hundred miles an hour.
"No you dooonnn't!" Fang's voice spiraled away into nothingness, far above
me.
Inside my head, almost drowned out by the roar of wind rushing by my ears, I
heard the Voice make a tsking sound. You guys are crazy about each other, it
said. ~ James Patterson
Looking Downward quotes by James Patterson
If it's a nod from society you're looking for, run a marathon. But if it's a life-changing experience of personal strength and perseverance that you want, finish an ultra. ~ Vanessa Runs
Looking Downward quotes by Vanessa Runs
Why had this good-looking moll chosen this effeminate buffoon, they all wanted to know. But Jimmy understood why immediately. Because he allowed her to be free. ~ Heather O'Neill
Looking Downward quotes by Heather O'Neill
The trouble began right after Perry proposed. Although we were happy at first, it didn't take long before we discovered that we didn't suit. Perry said I wasn't the same woman he'd known all his life. He said I had changed- and he was right. We'd never argued before, but suddenly it seemed we couldn't agree on anything. I made him very unhappy, I'm afraid."
"So you gave him plenty of lip," Derek commented, looking pleased. His good humor restored, he reached over to pat her familiarly on the thigh. "That's fine. I like my women saucy. ~ Lisa Kleypas
Looking Downward quotes by Lisa Kleypas
She was very pretty: exceedingly pretty. With a dimpled, surprised-looking, capital face; a ripe little mouth, that seemed made to be kissed - as no doubt it was; all kinds of good little dots about her chin, that melted into one another when she laughed; and the sunniest pair of eyes you ever saw in any little creature's head. Altogether she was what you would have called provoking, you know; but satisfactory, too. Oh, perfectly satisfactory. ~ Charles Dickens
Looking Downward quotes by Charles Dickens
As a struggling actor, you're not looking for parts that define you; you're just looking for work. ~ Matt Damon
Looking Downward quotes by Matt Damon
Velia, without pausing in her artwork, said, "Can't trick nobody not looking to be tricked. ~ Chance Maree
Looking Downward quotes by Chance Maree
My first therapist was a psychiatric resident assigned to me by University Health Services when I was a third-year law student. I was looking for help dealing with a breakup that at the time felt tragic but that now seems like that moment when you look up from your phone just in time to avoid being plowed down by a city bus. ~ Ayelet Waldman
Looking Downward quotes by Ayelet Waldman
That too ended in defeat with an injury. We have the video. It was painful to watch you struggle; even more painful for you to participate! I knew the Dan Gable dream was over when Nicola proved more into it than you were.
But looking back on that time, it was evident that you had a mind of your own. If you didn't want to do something, no one could make you. ~ Connor Franta
Looking Downward quotes by Connor Franta
Feminism will be just as oppressive to women as the media if it compels us to change who we are. The ends will not justify the means. It is like a corset that, although originally intended to make us feel good, about ourselves, has been pulled so tight that we are not left with enough room to breathe. Feminism often seems to be looking down its nose at us these days, as it militantly tells us how to behave- focusing on appearances according to a male dominated society. Have they forgotten that it is the societal viewpoint which needs to be changed? Somewhere along the line this movement got off track.


After all, we are constantly being told how to look, how to age, how to eat, how to act. Can't we at least think what we want? ~ Nancy Madore
Looking Downward quotes by Nancy Madore
Stop abandoning your children. You wouldn't call yourself a runner if you quit every race halfway through. Finishing is a good start. Stop looking for the escape hatch; pretend your work in progress just doesn't have one. 23. ~ Chuck Wendig
Looking Downward quotes by Chuck Wendig
Though actually I think that being in one's twenties is in itself to be restricted. At that age one's vigour is great, and one looks ahead, keeps one's eyes fixed on things to come, and of the things found in one's surroundings the most important are always those that hold the most promise. At the same time, and this is the cruelty of it, this forward-looking gaze is constantly confronted with the limitations of one's character, constantly coming up against a sense of stagnation - hence the youthful fear of stagnating intellectually. ~ Karl Ove Knausgaard
Looking Downward quotes by Karl Ove Knausgaard
Claiming there is no other life in the universe is like scooping up some water, looking at the cup and claiming there are no whales in the ocean. ~ Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Looking Downward quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
We dream. We aspire. We hope. Sure, we can get down too. But it's not about that. It's not those moments that define us. It's those times when we're looking forward, seeing that brighter future, and acting on it. ~ Zechariah Barrett
Looking Downward quotes by Zechariah Barrett
When it comes to size, most people don't want to see themselves looking bigger than what they are. ~ Missy Elliott
Looking Downward quotes by Missy Elliott
Please, Karish, all this temptation before you." I nodded at all the pretty people around us. "Something's going to burst."
He smiled. No, leered. "You offering to do something about it?"
I reached back for one of the dishes on the table and found a wicked-looking knife. I raised it and cocked a suggestive brow.
He paled. "You're a sick, sick woman."
"Still think you're going to like me? ~ Moira J. Moore
Looking Downward quotes by Moira J. Moore
Our growing conviction that no thoroughly honorable business-man who is this side of dotage ever advertises for a lady stenographer who is a blonde, is good-looking, is quite alone in the city, or will transmit her photograph. All such advertisements upon their face bear the marks of vulgarity, nor do we regard it safe for any lady to answer such unseemly utterances. ~ Erik Larson
Looking Downward quotes by Erik Larson
I have gone on the air and announced my telephone number at the Washington Post. I go into the night, talking to people, looking for things. The great dreaded thing every reporter lives with is what you don't know. The source you didn't go to. The phone call you didn't return. ~ Bob Woodward
Looking Downward quotes by Bob Woodward
Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what it was in nostalgia, nor forward to what it might be in dread or anticipation, but living in the present relationship and accepting it as it is now. ~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Looking Downward quotes by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
When I first began modeling, I was very conventional looking. I had hair down to my waist in a side parting - almost church-like. But beneath the sheath of hair lay this Amazonian, strong-looking frame. ~ Erin O'Connor
Looking Downward quotes by Erin O'Connor
Nearly everybody is looking for something brave to do. I don't know why people shouldn't write poetry. That's brave. ~ Robert Frost
Looking Downward quotes by Robert Frost
"Have you ever considered simply exploring and looking for the place where the sun shines over the moon?" It suggested. ~ Grace Fiorre
Looking Downward quotes by Grace Fiorre
I spent an hour looking at pots and carpets in the museums the other day, until the desire to describe them became like the desire for the lusts of the flesh. ~ Virginia Woolf
Looking Downward quotes by Virginia Woolf
