#1. I know them, yea,
And what they weigh, even to the utmost scruple;
Scambling, out-facing, fashion-mong'ring boys,
That lie, and cog, and flout, deprave, and slander,
Go antickly, and show outward hideousness,
And speak off half a dozen dangerous words,
How they might hurt their enemies, if they durst;
And this is all. - Author: William Shakespeare
Out Facing quotes by William Shakespeare
#2. One central characteristic of the Model T now generally forgotten is that it was the first car of consequence to put the driver's seat on the left-hand side. Previously, nearly all manufacturers placed the driver on the outer, curb-side of the car so that an alighting driver could step out onto a grassy verge or dry sidewalk rather than into the mud of an unpaved road. Ford reasoned that this convenience might be better appreciated by the lady of the house, and so arranged seating for her benefit. The arrangement also gave the driver a better view down the road, and made it easier for passing drivers to stop and have a conversation out facing windows. Ford was no great thinker, but he did understand human nature. Such, in any case, was the popularity of Ford's seating plan for the Model T that it soon became the standard adopted by all cars. - Author: Bill Bryson
Out Facing quotes by Bill Bryson
#3. Had I faced all the facts It seemed like I had but actually you never know just by remembering how many there were to have faced. - Author: Jane Smiley
Out Facing quotes by Jane Smiley
#4. But what's true about comedians is that we've all got a huge hole in our personality. In a room of 3,000 people, we're the one person facing in the opposite direction - yet we have this overwhelming desire to be liked. - Author: Jimmy Carr
Out Facing quotes by Jimmy Carr
#5. You have to be an ally in a difficult time and not turn on yourself with self-shaming thoughts, which makes facing pain intolerable. - Author: Jewel
Out Facing quotes by Jewel
#6. No matter how different our First Ladies have been - and as individual women they have ranged from recluses to vibrant hostesses to political manipulators on a par with Machiavelli - they have all shared the unnerving experience of facing a job they did not choose. - Author: Margaret Truman Daniel
Out Facing quotes by Margaret Truman Daniel
#7. Peace is never long preserved by weight of metal or by an armament race. Peace can be made tranquil and secure only by understanding and agreement fortified by sanctions. We must embrace international cooperation or international disintegration. Science has taught us how to put the atom to work. But to make it work for good instead of for evil lies in the domain dealing with the principles of human dignity. We are now facing a problem more of ethics than of physics. - Author: Bernard Baruch
Out Facing quotes by Bernard Baruch
#8. The truly courageous do not run when facing danger; they roar. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Out Facing quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#9. Facing the sagging middle when writing a novel, while inevitable, may be
overcome by pre-planning. I divide my collection of proposed scenes into three acts, each scene inciting tension that builds toward the final crisis in Act Three. If by Act Two the emotional river isn't spilling over the banks, I reassess the plot so that once the writing is flowing I don't slide into a dry creek. The central character should be struggling to navigate life well into the end of Act One, even if her fiercest antagonist is only from within. - Author: Patricia Hickman
Out Facing quotes by Patricia Hickman
#10. This is a timely and relevant initiative. The environmental challenges facing Singapore and the region are becoming more complex. Tackling them will require inter-disciplinary approaches combined with a good understanding of science, economics and governance aspects. The NUS Bachelor of Environment programme will fill a much needed gap in the current framework. NEA is pleased to be a partner to this programme. - Author: Andrew Tan
Out Facing quotes by Andrew Tan
#11. It's easy to have faith when everything is going great. The real test of faith is when you're facing something that only your faith in God will get you through. - Author: Geoffrey Canada
Out Facing quotes by Geoffrey Canada
#12. No man is an island, said John Donne, but I humbly dare to add: No man or woman is an island, but every one of us is a peninsula, half attached to the mainland, half facing the ocean – one half connected to family and friends and culture and tradition and country and nation and sex and language and many other things, and the other half wanting to be left alone to face the ocean.

I think we ought to be allowed to remain peninsulas. Every social and political system that turns each of us into a Donnean island and the rest of humankind into an enemy or a rival is a monster. But at the same time every social and political and ideological system that wants to turn each of us into no more than a molecule of the mainland is also a monstrosity. The condition of peninsula is the proper human condition. That's what we are and that's what we deserve to remain. - Author: Amos Oz
Out Facing quotes by Amos Oz
#13. We have to face the reality of climate change. It is arguably the biggest threat we are facing today. - Author: William Hague
Out Facing quotes by William Hague
#14. Never has America lost a war ... But name, if you can, the last peace the United States won. Victory yes, but this country has never made a successful peace because peace requires exchanging ideas, concepts, thoughts, and recognizing the fact that two distinct systems of life can exist together without conflict. Consider how quickly America seems to be facing its allies of one war as new enemies. - Author: Vine Deloria Jr.
Out Facing quotes by Vine Deloria Jr.
#15. There is an emotional promiscuity we've noticed among many good young men and women. The young man understands something of the journey of the heart. He wants to talk, to "share the journey." The woman is grateful to be pursued, she opens up. They share the intimacies of their lives - their wounds, their walks with God. But he never commits. He enjoys her... then leaves. And she wonders, What did I do wrong? She failed to see his passivity. He really did not ever commit or offer assurances that he would. Like Willoughby to Marianne in Sense and Sensibility.

Be careful you do not offer too much of yourself to a man until you have good, solid evidence that he is a strong man willing to commit. Look at his track record with other women. Is there anything to be concerned about there? If so, bring it up. Also, does he have any close male friends - and what are they like as men? Can he hold down a job? Is he walking with God in a real and intimate way? Is he facing the wounds of his own life, and is he also demonstrating a desire to repent of Adam's passivity and/or violence? Is he headed somewhere with his life? A lot of questions, but your heart is a treasure, and we want you to offer it only to a man who is worthy and ready to handle it well. - Author: Stasi Eldredge
Out Facing quotes by Stasi Eldredge
#16. There's something about sober living and sober thinking, about facing long afternoons without the numbing distraction of anesthesia that disabuses you of the belief in the externals, shows you that strength and hope come not from circumstances or the acquisition of things, but from the simple accumulation of active experience, from gritting the teeth and checking the items off the list, one by one, even if it's painful and you're afraid. - Author: Caroline Knapp
Out Facing quotes by Caroline Knapp
#17. Where's Shelley?" I ask, scanning the room.
"Playing checkers, as usual," Georgia says, pointing to the corner. Shelley isn't facing me, but I recognize the back of her head and her wheelchair.
She's squealing, a hint that she won the game.
As I get closer to her, I catch a glimpse of who's playing against her. The dark hair should have been a clue that my life is about to be turned upside down, but it doesn't fully register. I freeze.
It can't be. My imagination must be going berserk.
But when he turns around and those familiar dark eyes pierce mine, reality zings up my spine like a lightning bolt.
Alex is here. Ten steps away from me. Oh, God, every feeling I've ever had for him comes rushing back like a tidal wave. I don't know what to do or say. I turn back to Georgia, wondering if she knew Alex was here. One look at her hopeful face tells me she did. - Author: Simone Elkeles
Out Facing quotes by Simone Elkeles
#18. It's kind of nice in some ways having an Olympic Trials where I finished second. You can kind of go in more under the radar facing a 2:03 guy and facing a lot of dudes who are faster than I am, whereas, before Beijing, I had one of the top 10 times in the field, or something like that. - Author: Ryan Hall
Out Facing quotes by Ryan Hall
#19. My final advice for young people is to not wait for leadership from adult politicians. Step forward today, because our current leaders are denying the dire reality we are facing. Leadership can come form anywhere. - Author: Kumi Naidoo
Out Facing quotes by Kumi Naidoo
#20. [B]eware trying to bend the Truth to fit your story instead of facing it head-on. That was your father's mistake. And that's how a Snake becomes a Lion and a Lion becomes a Snake. Because the more you bend the Truth to fit a story, the more it turns into Lies without you even realizing it. - Author: Soman Chainani
Out Facing quotes by Soman Chainani
#21. The beauty of facing life unprepared is tremendous. Then life has a newness, a youth; then life has a flow and freshness. Then life has so many surprises. And when life has so many surprises, boredom never settles in you. - Author: Rajneesh
Out Facing quotes by Rajneesh
#22. . We are guided by outcomes, not ideology. We have a policy of principled realism, rooted in shared goals, interests, and values. That realism forces us to confront a question facing every leader and nation in this room. It is a question we cannot escape or avoid. We will slide down the path of complacency, numb to the challenges, threats, and even wars that we face. Or do we have enough strength and pride to confront those dangers today, so that our citizens can enjoy peace and prosperity tomorrow? - Author: Donald J. Trump
Out Facing quotes by Donald J. Trump
#23. Do you know what nearly all the sociologists say today in their study of young people? The greatest problem facing young people today is not sex - it is boredom. - Author: Billy Graham
Out Facing quotes by Billy Graham
#24. A modern historian has described the struggle between Jews and Jesuits as a "struggle between two rivals," in which the "higher Jesuit clergy and the Jewish plutocracy stood facing one another in the middle of France like two invisible lines of battle."50 The description is true insofar as the Jews found in the Jesuits their first unappeasable foes, while the latter came promptly to realize how powerful a weapon antisemitism could be. This was the first attempt and the only one prior to Hitler to exploit the "major political concept"51 of antisemitism on a Pan-European scale. - Author: Hannah Arendt
Out Facing quotes by Hannah Arendt
#25. Hard truths can be dealt with, triumphed over, but lies will destroy your soul. - Author: Patricia Briggs
Out Facing quotes by Patricia Briggs
#26. That's the cruddy view from the Pacific coast this week. How's the world facing the Atlantic? Miss you. Love, - Author: Sarah McCoy
Out Facing quotes by Sarah McCoy
#27. My house has one integral living space and I am sitting on the couch facing the TV, while she is perched on a stool at the breakfast bar in the kitchen, my laptop open in front of her. We have adopted these same positions so many times over the years, it's like we have worn a groove in time. I imagine us suspended here for ever, like tiny figures in a doll's house. - Author: Tammy Cohen
Out Facing quotes by Tammy Cohen
#28. We may not realize it when we are facing them, but obstacles that we face and overcome only make us stronger. - Author: Amey Hegde
Out Facing quotes by Amey Hegde
#29. Saul Panzer stood facing the cast, not the audience. There is nothing impressive about Saul. He is undersized, his nose and ears are too big, and his shoulders slant. With Saul a thousand wrongdoers had made the mistake of believing what they saw. He spoke. "I believe this is the way it was Thursday evening when Mr. Wolfe entered. Does anyone disagree? - Author: Rex Stout
Out Facing quotes by Rex Stout
#30. The spread of nuclear weapons is the greatest threat facing the country-and I would argue facing humanity. - Author: Joe Biden
Out Facing quotes by Joe Biden

Out Facing quotes by Debasish Mridha

Out Facing quotes by Umberto Eco
#33. Once you're facing the direction of the deep within, awareness enters without a thought. - Author: John De Ruiter
Out Facing quotes by John De Ruiter
#34. Some comics get drunk before a show. I don't. When I get drunk, I don't want to stand in front of a bunch of people that I don't know. That does not sound comfortable. Why have all these people gathered? And why am I elevated and not facing the same way as everyone else? And what is this electric stick in my hand? I want a chair too! - Author: Mitch Hedberg
Out Facing quotes by Mitch Hedberg
#35. We must surrender our hopes and expectations, as well as our fears, and march directly into disappointment, work with disappointment, go into it, and make it our way of life, which is a very hard thing to do. Disappointment is a a good sign of basic intelligence. It cannot be compared to anything else: it is so sharp, precise, obvious, and direct. If we can open, then we suddenly begin to see that our expectations are irrelevant compared with the reality of the situations we are facing. - Author: Chogyam Trungpa
Out Facing quotes by Chogyam Trungpa
#36. No. All I say is that it is not argument that convinces me of the necessity of a future life, but this: when you go hand in hand with someone and all at once that person vanishes there, into nowhere, and you yourself are left facing that abyss, and look in. And I have looked in. . . . - Author: Leo Tolstoy
Out Facing quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#37. A customer facing crucial decisions:
What should I wipe myself with? What should I brush with? His personal hygiene was deteriorating rapidly as he stared at the rows of possibilities, sweating profusely. Would he ever bathe again? - Author: Benson Bruno
Out Facing quotes by Benson Bruno

Out Facing quotes by Camille Paglia
#39. There's my girl," he said. "On her feet already. You'll be a military officer in no time with an attitude like that."
Kestrel sat. She gave him a slight, ironic smile.
He returned it. "What I meant to say is that I'm glad you're better, and that I'm sorry I can't go to the Firstwinter ball."
It was good that she was already sitting. "Why would you want to go to a ball?"
"I thought I would take you."
She stared.
"It occurred to me that I have never danced with my daughter," he said. "And it would have been a wise move."
A wise move.
A show of force, then. A reminder of the respect due to the general's family. Quietly, Kestrel said, "You've heard the rumors."
He raised a hand, palm flat and facing her.
"Father--"
"Stop."
"It's not true. I--"
"We will not have this discussion." His hand lifted to block his eyes, then fell. "Kestrel, I'm not here for that. I'm here to tell you that I'm leaving. The emperor is sending me east to fight the barbarians."
It wasn't the first time in Kestrel's memory that her father had been sent to war, but the fear she felt was always the same, always keen. "For how long?"
"As long as it takes. I leave the morning of the ball with my regiment."
"The entire regiment?"
He caught the tone in her voice. He sighed. "Yes."
"That means there will be no soldiers in the city or its surroundings. If there's a problem--"
"The city guard will be here. The emperor feels - Author: Marie Rutkoski

Out Facing quotes by Lauren Potter
#41. I found myself facing a man and a woman who looked so much alike, they could only be twins, or two people who had been married for a very long time. They both had pear-shaped bodies with short, thick legs and grumpy-looking arms, and it looked like they had both tried on heads that were too small for them, and were about to ask the head clerk for a larger size. - Author: Lemony Snicket
Out Facing quotes by Lemony Snicket
#42. Nobody else can make us discouraged; it is a choice that we alone make when facing disappointments. - Author: Charles Stanley
Out Facing quotes by Charles Stanley

Out Facing quotes by E. O. Wilson
#44. When facing a single tree, if you look at a single one of its red leaves, you will not see all the others. When the eye is not set on one leaf, and you face the tree with nothing at all in mind, any number of leaves are visible to the eye without limit. But if a single leaf holds the eye, it will be as if the remaining leaves were not there. - Author: Takuan Soho
Out Facing quotes by Takuan Soho
#45. He and Anna lay facing each other, Staines lying on his left hip, and Anna, on her right, both of them with their knees drawn up to their chests, Staines with one hand tucked beneath his bandaged shoulder, Anna with one hand tucked beneath her cheek. She must have turned toward him, some time in the night: her left arm was flung outward, her fingers reaching, her palm turned down ...
Devlin came closer ... He looked down at Anna and Emery, their mirrored bodies, facing in. They were breathing in tandem.
So they are lovers, he thought, looking down at them. So they are lovers, after all. He knew it from the way that they were sleeping. - Author: Eleanor Catton
Out Facing quotes by Eleanor Catton
#46. As millions of Americans look for work, the Obama campaign and Democrats are attempting to distract attention away from this administration's dismal record.

Out Facing quotes by Jeb Bradley
#47. I don't know if Oron has the power to control us, but if he does, he chooses not to. He gives humans their own free will ... and maybe that's why we are once again facing the darkness. - Author: Melissa Pearl
Out Facing quotes by Melissa Pearl

Out Facing quotes by Mike Carey
#49. The Theatre of the Absurd, in the sense that it is truly the contemporary theatre, facing as it does man's condition as it is, is the Realistic theatre of our time; and that the supposed Realistic theatre - the term used here to mean most of what is done on Broadway - in the sense that it panders to the public need for self-congratulation and reassurance and presents a false picture of ourselves to ourselves is ... really and truly The Theatre of the Absurd. - Author: Edward Albee
Out Facing quotes by Edward Albee

Out Facing quotes by Harold S. Kushner
#51. I have a counteroffer. I'll tell you the job description I really want."
Raine's throat tightened in frustration. If he was going to keep it on this level, it was up to her to force them to the next one. As always.
Seth looked down at his feet. She saw his Adam's apple bob, once. Twice. He met her eyes, with the look of a man who was facing the firing squad. "Full-time lover," he said hoarsely. "Father of your children. Companion in adventure, champion, guardian, protector, helpmeet, mate. Love of you life. Forever. - Author: Shannon McKenna
