#1. It was from the artists and poets that the pertinent answers came, and I know that panic would have broken loose had they been able to compare notes. - Author: H.P. Lovecraft
Pertinent Positives quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#2. Excerpt from my lecture Sunday at Soul-Esteem Center
10 Commandments - God knew when he gave us choice some would make the wrong choices, but God wanted his creation, man, to have free will and felt later it necessary to write the 10 Commandants as a reminder of how God wanted his creations to perform. The 10 Commandants contain 5 positives and five negatives - Author: I. Alan Appt
Pertinent Positives quotes by I. Alan Appt
#3. The same view you look at every day, the same life, can become something brand new by focusing on its gifts rather than the negative aspects. Perspective is your own choice and the best way to shift that perspective is through gratitude, by acknowledging and appreciating the positives. - Author: Bronnie Ware
Pertinent Positives quotes by Bronnie Ware
#4. That's something for me to consider. So what else can you tempt me with?"
Breckenridge hid a wry smile; he'd guessed that, in common with her female Cynster mentors, she'd be drawn to the prospect of managing a large household and the estate's people. Organizing ran in the blood. "I believe I mentioned that I'm under sisterly edict to marry. Unsurprisingly, a large and pertinent motive behind my sisters' prodding is the desirability of me begetting an heir, or more, thus securing the succession. Perish the thought the estate might ever revert to the Crown, so you could view your pole as my future countess as in part holding the ton line against King George and his cronies."
She narrowed her eyes on his. That's the most inventive way I've ever heard of saying you want children."
His lips curved, then he let the expression fade. "I do-but do you?"
She looked forward. "Yes, of course." After a moment she added, "I can't imagine not wanting children, truth be told."
"Well, then we're in agreement on that."
"Don't get carried away-you haven't yet convinced me we should wed. - Author: Stephanie Laurens
Pertinent Positives quotes by Stephanie Laurens
#5. I actually think that the economy has got some positives. It's got the market. It's got consumer confidence and it's got banks throwing - I mean central bankers throwing money at it around the world. - Author: Jack Welch
Pertinent Positives quotes by Jack Welch
#6. I became a filmmaker because I wanted to deal with issues that intrigued me, that I thought were pertinent, that would start dialogue. - Author: Justin Lin
Pertinent Positives quotes by Justin Lin
#7. In my experience endings are false positives. Perhaps like a phoenix, out of the ashes of destruction we could be reborn."

-Cassandra Rainbow in PHOENIX- - Author: Vaun Murphrey
Pertinent Positives quotes by Vaun Murphrey
#8. I've done some things I wish I could erase ... I invented mistakes. But the mistakes must be seen in context, and they must be weighed along with the positives. - Author: Sammy Davis Jr.
Pertinent Positives quotes by Sammy Davis Jr.
#9. There were a lot of negatives, of course, but there were positives to living a life unfettered by possessions. It gave us the chance to focus on education, which was very important in the Soviet Union. - Author: Jan Koum
Pertinent Positives quotes by Jan Koum
#10. Acknowledge and voice the positives LOUDER than the negatives. - Author: Tanya Masse
Pertinent Positives quotes by Tanya Masse
#11. I'd say the best way to train someone is to remember that you have two ears and one mouth, and use them in that ratio. That's hard to do, and ultimately what we've learned is how many false positives you get from listening to what someone says they're going to do instead of observing what they actually do. - Author: Brad D. Smith
Pertinent Positives quotes by Brad D. Smith
#12. Dopamine enhances the ability of neurons to transmit signals between one another. How? By acting as an agonist (as opposed to antagonist), or a substance that enhances neural activity. Dopamine binds to specific receptor molecule sites on the synaptic clefts of the neurons, as if it were the CTS that normally bind there.12 It increases the rate of neural firing in association with pattern recognition, which means that synaptic connections between neurons are likely to increase in response to a perceived pattern, thereby cementing those perceived patterns into long-term memory through the actual physical growth of new neural connections and the reinforcement of old synaptic links.
Increasing dopamine increases pattern detection; scientists have found that dopamine agonists not only enhance learning but in higher doses can also trigger symptoms of psychosis, such as hallucinations, which may be related to that fine line between creativity (discriminate patternicity) and madness (indiscriminate patternicity). The dose is the key. Too much of it and you are likely to be making lots of Type I errors - false positives - in which you find connections that are not really there. Too little and you make Type II errors - false negatives - in which you miss connections that are real. - Author: Michael Shermer
Pertinent Positives quotes by Michael Shermer
#13. Outside of interviews, I spend very little time thinking about myself. I spend time thinking about my writing and my children and other things that are pertinent. - Author: Monica Ali
Pertinent Positives quotes by Monica Ali
#14. I believe in 'Positives' not Negatives the only thing about Alcohol I'm Powerless over is those Damn Taxes - Author: Stanley Victor Paskavich
Pertinent Positives quotes by Stanley Victor Paskavich
#15. GE is falling under the same cloud of the market as a whole. Investors are not focused on the positives that are occurring like corporate profitability. - Author: James Fisher
Pertinent Positives quotes by James Fisher
#16. That is the essence of science: ask an impertinent question, and you are on the way to a pertinent answer. - Author: Jacob Bronowski
Pertinent Positives quotes by Jacob Bronowski
#17. A computer search would have given me a list of pertinent cases, but without that I had to read everything. That is harder by far, but you end up learning a lot more. I was forced to remember cases because making copies of everything was too expensive. Keeping cases in your head is good, too, because cases are like puzzle pieces floating around in your mind, and sometimes, in moments of creativity, they fall into place and form a picture. If they were words on a screen that you could pull up anytime you wished, that phenomenon wouldn't happen as easily. - Author: Shon Hopwood
Pertinent Positives quotes by Shon Hopwood
#18. Thinking it'll be tough, one forwent the test;
while other took it but studied hardest.
Thinking it might rain, one canceled his trip;
while other pushed through, with raincoat equipped.

Thoughts of hindrance make you not negative,
it's in the kind of reaction you'll give.
If the negative's way is just to quit,
the positive's style is find ways round it. - Author: Rodolfo Martin Vitangcol
Pertinent Positives quotes by Rodolfo Martin Vitangcol
#19. The Work of Art. When I watch the audience at a concert or the crowd in the picture gallery I ask myself sometimes what exactly is their reaction towards the work of art. It is plain that often they feel deeply, but I do not see that their feeling has any effect, and if it has no effect its value is slender. Art to them is only a recreation or a refuge. It rests them from the work which they consider the justification of their existence or consoles them in their disappointment with reality. It is the glass of beer which the labourer drinks when he pauses in his toil or the peg of gin which the harlot takes to snatch a moment's oblivion from the pain of life. Art for art's sake means no more than gin for gin's sake. The dilettante who cherishes the sterile emotions which he receives from the contemplation of works of art has little reason to rate himself higher than the toper. His is the attitude of the pessimist. Life is a struggle or a weariness and in art he seeks repose or forgetfulness. The pessimist refuses reality, but the artist accepts it. The emotion caused by a work of art has value only if it has an effect on character and so results in action. Whoever is so affected is himself an artist. The artist's response to the work of art is direct and reasonable, for in him the emotion is translated into ideas which are pertinent to his own purposes, and to him ideas are but another form of action. But I do not mean that it is only painters, poets and musicians who can resp - Author: W. Somerset Maugham
Pertinent Positives quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#20. Travelling in other's shoes is a complex process. Everyone carries loads of inherited virtues and then, heaps of experience acquired while travelling their own exclusive path of life. One's personality, particularly the way one thinks, beholds both inborn traits and learned knowledge. Unless one is born to the same parents as the other, exactly at same time, beholding same blend of inherent traits and travelled the same path the other has travelled so far - a biological and pragmatic impossibility - it is imprudent to claim having knowledge of other's thought process. One's uniqueness is not constrained to the physical form, but is pertinent, too, to intellectual, emotional and spiritual forms. - Author: Hari Parameshwar
Pertinent Positives quotes by Hari Parameshwar
#21. Rather than put ourselves down continually, we must work hard to concentrate on our positives, focusing on that which makes us unique and likable. We all have things that we would change if we could. Even people who we think have it all, don't. Nobody has it all because no one is perfect. We all realize this and yet continue to criticize and insult ourselves. Now is the time to stop this nonsense! Change what you can change and accept the rest as a necessary part of your own unique humanity. Make peace with who you are. - Author: Douglas Kelley
Pertinent Positives quotes by Douglas Kelley
#22. Sometimes you can have a reputation for not being relatable and nice because you had a bad day once. That's the thing. You know, I think that's particularly pertinent with Justin [Bieber] because, like, you just forget how young he is. - Author: James Corden
Pertinent Positives quotes by James Corden
#23. What we have instead are false memories aroused later and more pertinent to this later perspective than to the original events. Sometimes in matters of great emotion, one representation, retaining all the original intensity, comes to replace another, which is then discarded and forgotten. The new representation is called a screen memory. A screen memory is a compromise between remembering something painful and defending yourself against that very remembering. - Author: Karen Joy Fowler
Pertinent Positives quotes by Karen Joy Fowler
#24. And yet what precisely is this 'greatness'? Just where, or in what, does it lie? I am quite aware it would take a far wiser head than mine to answer such a question, but if I were forced to hazard a guess, I would say that it is the very lack of obvious drama or spectacle that sets the beauty of our land apart. What is pertinent is the calmness of that beauty, its sense of restraint. It is as though the land knows of its own beauty, of its own greatness, and feels no need to shout it. - Author: Kazuo Ishiguro
Pertinent Positives quotes by Kazuo Ishiguro
#25. Curing the negatives does not produce the positives. - Author: Martin Seligman
Pertinent Positives quotes by Martin Seligman
#26. Spend two minutes a day scanning the world for three new things you're grateful for. And do that for 21 days, The reason why that's powerful is you're training your brain to scan the world in a new pattern, you're scanning for positives, instead of scanning for threats. It's the fastest way of teaching optimism. - Author: Shawn Achor
Pertinent Positives quotes by Shawn Achor
#27. You have the power to turn your negatives into positives. - Author Mahogany Law - Author: Mahogany Law
Pertinent Positives quotes by Mahogany Law
#28. What are the things that make adults depressed? The master list is too comprehensive to quantify (plane crashes, unemployment, killer bees, impotence, Stringer Bell's murder, gambling addictions, crib death, the music of Bon Iver, et al.) But whenever people talk about their personal bouts of depression in the abstract, there are two obstructions I hear more than any other. The possibility that one's life is not important, and the mundane predictability of day-to-day existence. Talk to a depressed person (particularly one who's nearing midlife), and one (or both) of these problems will inevitably be described. Since the end of World War II, every generation of American children has been endlessly conditioned to believe that their lives are supposed to be great -- a meaningful life is not just possible, but required. Part of the reason forward-thinking media networks like Twitter succeed is because people want to believe that every immaterial thing they do is pertinent by default; it's interesting because it happened to them, which translates as interesting to all. At the same time, we concede that a compelling life is supposed to be spontaneous and unpredictable-- any artistic depiction of someone who does the same thing every day portrays that character as tragically imprisoned (January Jones on Mad Men, Ron Livingston in Office Space, the lyrics to "Eleanor Rigby," all novels set in affluent suburbs, pretty much every project Sam Mendes has ever conceived, etc.) If you know - Author: Chuck Klosterman
Pertinent Positives quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#29. I'm sorry, I don't understand. Could you tell me more about this 'profanity'?"
Mrs. Miller nodded at my dictionary. "I'll assume you don't need a definition. Perhaps you'd prefer an example?"
"That would be so helpful, thank you very much."
Without missing a beat, Mrs. Miller rattled off a stream of obscenities so fully and completely unexpected that I fell off my chair. Mothers were defiled, their male and female children, as well as any and all offspring who just happened to be born out of wedlock. AS for the sacred union that produced these innocent babes, the pertinent bodily appendages were catalogued by a list of names so profoundly scurrilous that a grizzled marine, conceived in a brothel and dying of a disease he contracted in one, would've wished he'd been born as smooth as a Ken doll. The act itself was invoked with such a verity of incestuous, scatological, bestial, and just plain bizarre variations that that same marine would've given up on the Ken doll fantasy, and wished instead that all life had been confined to a single-cell stage, forever free of taint of mitosis, let alone procreation.
Somewhere during the course of all this I noticed I'd snapped my pencil in half, and now I used the two ends to gouge out my brain.
"Guhhhhhh guhhhhh guhhhhhh guhhhhh guhhhhh," I said, by which I meant: "You have shattered whatever tattered remnants of pedagogical propriety I still possessed, and my tender young mind has broken beneath the strain." N - Author: Dale Peck

#30. Looking for positives is always wise in any situation that you may encounter. - Author: Steven Redhead
Pertinent Positives quotes by Steven Redhead
#31. I'm never at my worst because even at my lowest, its a learning experience. It's something that I'll bounce ideas off. I can take negatives and flip them to positives at all times. - Author: Kanye West
Pertinent Positives quotes by Kanye West
#32. Words have influence only when they are pertinent... - Author: Cary F. Baynes
Pertinent Positives quotes by Cary F. Baynes
#33. I remember in 2000, when President Clinton came to Cartagena just before Plan Colombia started, the country was on the verge of becoming a failed state. Today, we are one of the most solid democracies, where institutions are working, where the scandals such as false positives have come to light because of those functioning institutions. - Author: Juan Manuel Santos
Pertinent Positives quotes by Juan Manuel Santos
#34. One of the main cyber-risks is to think they don't exist. The other is to try to treat all potential risks.

Fix the basics, protect first what matters for your business and be ready to react properly to pertinent threats. Think data, but also business services integrity, awareness, customer experience, compliance, and reputation. - Author: Stephane Nappo
Pertinent Positives quotes by Stephane Nappo
#35. I would be much more annoyed if we hadn't won the game. As a manager, you have to see the positives and I think Pires has a vaccine for the rest of his life. - Author: Arsene Wenger
Pertinent Positives quotes by Arsene Wenger
#36. This notion of the centrality of the church ... could hardly be more pertinent to the perennial question of "Christian culture" and our evaluation of the great figures such as Calvin and Kuyper. Hearing the words "Christian culture" may evoke visions of godly emperors, medieval Madonnas, or Bach cantatas. None of which are really about the church. Or perhaps the phrase "Christian culture" resonates with contemporary Reformed buzzwords like "world and life view," "transformation," and "kingdom vision"
all of which, I fear, are often enlisted in the service of convincing Reformed youth that it is a mistake to think of the church as central to the Christian life. - Author: David VanDrunen
Pertinent Positives quotes by David VanDrunen
#37. Do you have any strix-pertinent information or not, O Wise Projectile?"
The arrow buzzed, no doubt trying to access Wikipedia. It denies using the Internet. Perhaps, then, it's just a coincidence the arrow is always more helpful when we are in an area with free Wi-Fi. - Author: Rick Riordan
Pertinent Positives quotes by Rick Riordan
#38. Think of your brain as a radio transmitter. It broadcasts thoughts, directions and vibrations into your life. Every day you get to choose the station it's tuned into to. Learn to tune out negativity to make room for positivity. Walk away from the nonsense around you. Focus on the positives, and soon the negatives will become static. - Author: Anonymous
Pertinent Positives quotes by Anonymous
#39. To be successful in life, you must get in the habit of turning negatives into positives. - Author: George Foreman
Pertinent Positives quotes by George Foreman
#40. Because I have conducted my own operas and love sheep-dogs; because I generally dress in tweeds, and sometimes, at winter afternoon concerts, have even conducted in them; because I was a militant suffragette and seized a chance of beating time to The March of the Women from the window of my cell in Holloway Prison with a tooth-brush; because I have written books, spoken speeches, broadcast, and don't always make sure that my hat is on straight; for these and other equally pertinent reasons, in a certain sense I am well known. - Author: Ethel Smyth
Pertinent Positives quotes by Ethel Smyth
#41. Remember that consciousness is power. Consciousness is education and knowledge. Consciousness is becoming aware. It is the perfect vehicle for students. Consciousness-raising is pertinent for power, and be sure that power will not be abusively used, but used for building trust and goodwill domestically and internationally. Tomorrow's world is yours to build. - Author: Yuri Kochiyama
