#7. For the starving and suffering Lydians, games were a way to raise real quality of life. This was their primary function: to provide real positive emotions, real positive experiences, and real social connections during a difficult time. This is still the primary function of games for us today. They serve to make our real lives better. And they serve this purpose beautifully, better than any other tool we have. No one is immune to boredom or anxiety, loneliness or depression. Games solve these problems, quickly, cheaply, and dramatically. Life is hard, and games make it better. - Author: Jane McGonigal

Positive Emotions quotes by Martin Seligman
#11. Positive thinking is just one small part of positive psychology. Plus, as an approach to well-being, positive thinking only helps you to the extent that it yields one or more positive emotions. The problem with positive thinking is that it sometimes just stays up "in the head" and fails to drip down to become a fully embodied experience. - Author: Barbara Fredrickson
Positive Emotions quotes by Barbara Fredrickson
#12. Initially, the positive emotions derived from cultivating our higher natures may be weak, but we can enhance them through constant familiarity, making our experiences of happiness and inner contentment far more powerful than a life abandoned to purely impulsive emotions. - Author: Dalai Lama XIV
Positive Emotions quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#13. I believe that the best way to create good living conditions for any animal, whether it's a captive animal living in a zoo, a farm animal or a pet, is to base animal welfare programs on the core emotion systems in the brain. My theory is that the environment animals live in should activate their positive emotions as much as possible, and not activate their negative emotions any more than necessary. If we get the animal's emotions rights, we will have fewer problem behaviors ... All animals and people have the same core emotion systems in the brain. - Author: Temple Grandin
Positive Emotions quotes by Temple Grandin
#14. Each of us has something to do in this lifetime. We all have negative emotions to be purified and positive emotions to be cultivated. All of us need to reconnect to our source and drop our personal stories, don't we? Men, women, old, young, from here, from there - it is the same. All you can do is your practice. There is nothing else. Don't get caught up. Don't stop. We have to learn how to get out or our own way. Because ultimately, the only thing standing in our way is ourselves. - Author: Tenzin Palmo
Positive Emotions quotes by Tenzin Palmo
#15. Today you are encouraged to start tuning in to your inner voice. Nothing will bring you down quicker than berating yourself. The words you speak to yourself have a major impact on your mood and your perception. One of the major reasons we fail is due to self-doubt and negative self-talk. The way to overcome negative thoughts and destructive emotions is to develop opposing, positive emotions that are stronger and more powerful. Listen to your self-talk and replace negative thoughts with positive ones. And over time you will change the trajectory of your life. - Author: John Geiger
Positive Emotions quotes by John Geiger

Positive Emotions quotes by Jane McGonigal

Positive Emotions quotes by Marilu Henner

Positive Emotions quotes by Melanie Greenberg
#19. In one of her most influential studies, she and her team tracked the emotional experiences of nearly two hundred people over years of their lives. The subjects spanned a broad range of backgrounds and ages. (They were from eighteen to ninety-four years old when they entered the study.) At the beginning of the study and then every five years, the subjects were given a beeper to carry around twenty-four hours a day for one week. They were randomly paged thirty-five times over the course of that week and asked to choose from a list all the emotions they were experiencing at that exact moment.
If Maslow's hierarchy was right, then the narrowing of life runs against people's greatest sources of fulfillment and you would expect people to grow unhappier as they age. But Carstensen's research found exactly the opposite. The results were unequivocal. Far from growing unhappier, people reported more positive emotions as they aged. They became less prone to anxiety, depression, and anger. They experienced trials, to be sure, and more moments of poignancy - that is, of positive and negative emotion mixed together. But overall, they found living to be a more emotionally satisfying and stable experience as time passed, even as old age narrowed the lives they led.
The findings raised a further question. If we shift as we age toward appreciating everyday pleasures and relationships rather than toward achieving, having, and getting, and if we find this more fulfilling, then why do w - Author: Atul Gawande
Positive Emotions quotes by Atul Gawande
#20. In life, the question is not if you will have problems, but how you are going to deal with your problems. If the possibility of failure were erased, what would you attempt to achieve?

The essence of man is imperfection. Know that you're going to make mistakes. The fellow who never makes a mistake takes his orders from one who does. Wake up and realize this: Failure is simply a price we pay to achieve success.

Achievers are given multiple reasons to believe they are failures. But in spite of that, they persevere. The average for entrepreneurs is 3.8 failures before they finally make it in business.

When achievers fail, they see it as a momentary event, not a lifelong epidemic.

Procrastination is too high a price to pay for fear of failure. To conquer fear, you have to feel the fear and take action anyway. Forget motivation. Just do it. Act your way into feeling, not wait for positive emotions to carry you forward.

Recognize that you will spend much of your life making mistakes. If you can take action and keep making mistakes, you gain experience.

Life is playing a poor hand well. The greatest battle you wage against failure occurs on the inside, not the outside.

Why worry about things you can't control when you can keep yourself busy controlling the things that depend on you?

Handicaps can only disable us if we let them. If you are continually experiencing trouble or facing obstacles, then - Author: John C. Maxwell
Positive Emotions quotes by John C. Maxwell
#21. My wish for all people throughout the world is to help teach love, tolerance in each household as part of their daily duty, so as to enrich the hearts and souls of those around them with positive emotions and lasting consideration for each other, so we can all learn to get along in peace and harmony - Author: Consolee Nishimwe
Positive Emotions quotes by Consolee Nishimwe
#22. If you feel crappy, it's because that's your brain telling you that there's a problem unaddressed or an issue unresolved. In other words, negative emotions are a call to action. When you feel them, it's because you're supposed to do something. Positive emotions, on the other hand, are rewards for taking proper action. When you feel them, life seems simple and there is nothing else to do but enjoy it. Then like everything else, positive emotions go away, because more problems inevitably emerge. - Author: Mark Manson
Positive Emotions quotes by Mark Manson
#23. It is noted that from 1967 to 1995 essays on negative emotions far outnumbered those on positive emotions in the psychological literature. The ratio was 21:1. Even those supreme perpetrators of pop nihilism, The New York Times and The Washington Post, have a better ratio than psychological literature. They average 12 negative stories to every one that might be construed to be non-negative. Many of their non-negative stories, however, cover success in sports and entertainment.

I demand that the purveyors of despair who pretend to be dispassionate observes of the human condition go ahead and disclose that the 10 most beautiful words in the English languages are chimes, dawn, golden, hush, lullaby, luminous, melody, mist, murmuring, and tranquil; that Java sparrows prefer the music of Back over that of Schoenberg; that math experts have determined there are 1/96 trillion ways to lace up your shoes; that the Inuit term for making love is translated as 'laughing together in bed;' and that according to Buckminster Fuller, "pollution is nothing but resources we're not harvesting. - Author: Rob Brezsny
Positive Emotions quotes by Rob Brezsny
#24. Music and songs are written at different periods of time, at different times in your life. They reflect the feelings you have and to be honest, I quite like having positive emotions. - Author: Scott Ian
Positive Emotions quotes by Scott Ian
#25. Typically, patients with multiple symptoms of depression are vulnerable to allowing the past to dominate their present-moment experience. Patients who live in the future will be faced with apprehension, worry, and anxiety. It's interesting to note that most positive emotions are "right here, right now" experiences, whereas negative emotions tend to have a past or future focus. - Author: Patricia J. Robinson
Positive Emotions quotes by Patricia J. Robinson
#26. People are in one of two states in a relationship," Gottman went on. "The first is what I call positive sentiment override, where positive emotion overrides irritability. It's like a buffer. Their spouse will do something bad, and they'll say, 'Oh, he's just in a crummy mood.' Or they can be in negative sentiment override, so that even a relatively neutral thing that a partner says gets perceived as negative. - Author: Malcolm Gladwell
Positive Emotions quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#27. You make it sound so terrible. There's nothing wrong with crying. Tears are healing. They help you drain out the sorrow and anguish, so you can start filling yourself with more positive emotions, when you're ready. - Author: Kyla Stone
Positive Emotions quotes by Kyla Stone
#28. If you always attach positive emotions to the things you want, and never attach negative emotions to the things you don't, then that which you desire most will invariably come your way. - Author: Matthew D. Miller
Positive Emotions quotes by Matthew D. Miller
#29. Positive emotion can be about the past, the present, or the future. The positive emotions about the future include optimism, hope, faith, and trust. Those about the present include joy, ecstasy, calm, zest, ebullience, pleasure, and (most importantly) flow; these emotions are what most people usually mean when they casually-but much too narrowly-talk about "happiness." The positive emotions about the past include satisfaction, contentment, fulfillment, pride, and serenity. - Author: Martin Seligman
Positive Emotions quotes by Martin Seligman
#30. The way to overcome negative thoughts and destructive emotions is to develop opposing, positive emotions that are stronger and more powerful. - Author: Dalai Lama
Positive Emotions quotes by Dalai Lama
#31. The positive emotions that arise in ... unpromising circumstances demonstrate that social ties and meaningful work are deeply desired, readily improvised, and intensely rewarding. The very structure of our economy and society prevent these goals from being achieved. - Author: Rebecca Solnit
Positive Emotions quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#32. If we just wanted positive emotions, our species would have died out a long time ago. - Author: Martin Seligman
Positive Emotions quotes by Martin Seligman
#33. The benefits of positive emotions don't stop after a few minutes of good feelings subside. In fact, the biggest benefit that positive emotions provide is an enhanced ability to build skills and develop resources for use later in life. - Author: Barbara Fredrickson
Positive Emotions quotes by Barbara Fredrickson
#34. Too many people are unaware that it is not outer events or circumstances that will create happiness; rather, it is our perception of events and of ourselves that will create, or uncreate, positive emotions. - Author: Albert Ellis
Positive Emotions quotes by Albert Ellis
#35. How can I create a helping relationship?

1) Can I be in some way that will be perceived by the other as trustworthy, dependable or consistent in some deep sense?
2) Can I be expressive enough as a person, that what I am will be communicated unambiguously?
3) Can I let myself experience positive emotions towards this person-attitudes of warmth, caring, liking, interest and respect?
4) Can I be strong enough as a person to be separate from the other? Can I be a sturdy respecter of my own needs and feelings as well as his?
5) Am I secure enough within myself to permit him, him separateness? Can I give him freedom to be or do I feel he should follow my advice, remain somewhat dependent on me or become a mold of me?
6) Can I allow myself to enter fully into the world of his feelings, personal meanings and see things as he does?
7) Can I be accepting of each facet of this other person
8) Can I act with sufficient sensitivity in the relationship, that my behaviour won't be seen as a threat?
9) Can I free him from the threat of external evaluation?
10) Can I meet this individual as a person who is in the process of becoming, or will I be bound by his past and my past? - Author: Carl R. Rogers
Positive Emotions quotes by Carl R. Rogers
#36. Most people think the more money, luxury or fame they have, the more successful they are; but I think that the true sign of success depends on how many positive emotions they experience each day. - Author: Maddy Malhotra
Positive Emotions quotes by Maddy Malhotra
#37. Although the insights we can have in meditation tell us nothing about the origins of the universe, they do confirm some well-established truths about the human mind: Our conventional sense of self is an illusion; positive emotions, such as compassion and patience, are teachable skills; and the way we think directly influences our experience of the world. - Author: Sam Harris
Positive Emotions quotes by Sam Harris
#38. A mind dominated by positive emotions, becomes a favorable abode for the state of mind known as faith. - Author: Napoleon Hill
Positive Emotions quotes by Napoleon Hill

Positive Emotions quotes by Brene Brown
#40. if you feel crappy it's because your brain is telling you that there's a problem that's unaddressed or
unresolved. In other words, negative emotions are a call to action. When you feel them, it's because
you're supposed to do something. Positive emotions, on the other hand, are rewards for taking the

#41. Be a flame of positive emotions and you will never be without a friend. - Author: Robert Greene
Positive Emotions quotes by Robert Greene
#42. The repeated finding that people with happier, less troubled thought patterns can suffer more illness seems to defy common sense. The general belief is that positive emotions must be conducive to good health. While it is true that genuine joy and satisfaction enhance physical well-being, "positive" states of mind generated to tune out psychic discomfort lower resistance to illness. The brain governs and integrates the activities of all organs and systems of the body, simultaneously coordinating our interactions with the environment.

This regulating function depends on the clear recognition of negative influences, danger signals and signs of internal distress. In children whose environment chronically conveys mixed messages, an impairment occurs in the developing apparatus of the brain. The brain's capacity to evaluate the environment is diminished, including its ability to distinguish what is nourishing from what is toxic. - Author: Gabor Mate
Positive Emotions quotes by Gabor Mate
#43. Robin Simon, a sociology professor at Florida State University and researcher on parenting and happiness, told The Daily Beast in 20083 that parents experience lower levels of emotional well-being, less frequent positive emotions and more frequent negative emotions than their childless peers. - Author: Jessica Valenti
Positive Emotions quotes by Jessica Valenti
#44. I want my audience to leave the theatre with positive emotions through this sensorial journey in the world of precious and fragile teenage beauty. And also the idea that the difficulties that we have to go through help us reveal who we really are. - Author: Alante Kavaite
Positive Emotions quotes by Alante Kavaite
#45. There are only two emotions: love and fear. All positive emotions come from love, all negative emotions from fear. From love flows happiness, contentment, peace, and joy. From fear comes anger, hate, anxiety and guilt. It's true that there are only two primary emotions, love and fear. But it's more accurate to say that there is only love or fear, for we cannot feel these two emotions together, at exactly the same time. They're opposites. If we're in fear, we are not in a place of love. When we're in a place of love, we cannot be in a place of fear. - Author: Elisabeth Kubler Ross
Positive Emotions quotes by Elisabeth Kubler Ross
#46. Meditation is one of Mother Nature's most powerful medicines and has no apparent side effects. It's been scientifically proven that meditation helps calm the mind and de-stress the body. It also helps regulate blood pressure, lowers depression, induces the 'relaxation response', rewires the circuitry of your brain, enhances positive emotions, increases overall life satisfaction . . . And that's just for starters! - Author: Melissa Ambrosini
Positive Emotions quotes by Melissa Ambrosini
#47. The sort of resilient personality who can bounce back quickly after a major setback, does so largely because they quickly generate positive emotions which serve as a physical and psychological antidote to bad news. - Author: Nick Baylis
Positive Emotions quotes by Nick Baylis

#51. What do I know of man's destiny? I could tell you more about radishes. - Author: Samuel Beckett
Positive Emotions quotes by Samuel Beckett
#52. Is this true?" Suzette asked, sounding like a suspicious nanny. It was a tone Daniel had heard often as a child, though from his mother, not a nanny. They hadn't been able to afford a nanny. Oddly enough, he suddenly found himself imagining Suzette as that nonexistent nanny, though really the gown he pictured her in as that nanny was nothing a respectable nanny would wear and covered less than it revealed as she approached him in his mind with a naughty smile and a spanking paddle in hand.
"Spank me," he breathed on a sigh, and then muttered, "Better yet,let me spank you." A vision immediately rose in his mind of her turning and slowly pulling up her scandalously short, ankle-revealing skirt to present him with a view of her very fine bottom.
That vision died an abrupt death when Richard's voice intruded, soaked with melodrama as he said, "Guilt can lead a man to act like an ass and do the most foolish of things."
Daniel almost snorted at that. He was standing there in a dark room all but dancing with a dead man while having the most ridiculous sexual fantasies about Suzette. All this wile waiting to be able to slip out of the house undiscovered. Oh yes, guilt-and many other emotions-made a man do foolish things. - Author: Lynsay Sands
Positive Emotions quotes by Lynsay Sands
#53. With self-awareness we can change our inner conversation about what we are feeling and create different outcomes in conversations with others. To create conversations for change we must be able to process ourselves and others through emotions. - Author: Shawn Kent Hayashi
Positive Emotions quotes by Shawn Kent Hayashi
#54. I used to hear people say nobody can prepare you for fame, and it's actually very true. But there is such beauty that comes with it when you're able to use your platform in a positive way. - Author: Jussie Smollett
Positive Emotions quotes by Jussie Smollett
#55. When you're constantly taking care of the emotions of others, you avoid having to face your own. - Author: Amy Chan
Positive Emotions quotes by Amy Chan
#56. Poetry is language that speaks to our hearts. And I'm using the biblical word heart. I think the closest equivalent to that in 21st-century language is our imaginations. The heart, in biblical physiology, is the center of our emotions, but also of our intellect. Those two things cannot be separated. And poetic language is precise. It is detailed, it's realistic, but it is not the discursive language of mere fact. - Author: Krista Tippett
Positive Emotions quotes by Krista Tippett
#57. Letter-writing too often degenerates into a communicating of facts, and not of truths; of other men's deeds and not our thoughts.What are the convulsions of a planet, compared with the emotions of the soul? or the rising of a thousand suns, if that is not enlightened by a ray? - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Positive Emotions quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#58. Hope, perhaps the most dangerous of all emotions and perhaps the most necessary. - Author: Robert Ludlum
Positive Emotions quotes by Robert Ludlum
#59. Napoleon Hill saw this law of transmutation as the seed of equivalent benefit: With every disappointment, heartbreak, or failure, there exists an equal (usually greater) positive benefit. - Author: Napoleon Hill
Positive Emotions quotes by Napoleon Hill
#60. Oh, dear Hazel." Aphrodite folded her fan. "Such optimism, yet you have heartrending days ahead of you. Of course war is coming. Love and war always go together. They are the peaks of human emotion! Evil and good, beauty and ugliness. - Author: Rick Riordan
Positive Emotions quotes by Rick Riordan
#61. Certain people give off positive energy, others negative. It's the quality of someone's being, a measure of the love with which they've led their lives. It also reflects the inner work they've done, their efforts to heal anger, hatred, or self-loathing, which poison us like toxic fumes. - Author: Judith Orloff
Positive Emotions quotes by Judith Orloff
#62. Men are psychologically unstable, too prone to emotions; not to be relied upon in moments of crisis.' 'That's - Author: Andrzej Sapkowski
Positive Emotions quotes by Andrzej Sapkowski
#63. If you let your emotions get high, your bargaining power will be low. Make sure you don't negotiate from a position of need when making a deal. - Author: Sharon Lechter
Positive Emotions quotes by Sharon Lechter
#64. I'm trying to broaden the scope of positive psychology well beyond the smiley face. Happiness is just one-fifth of what human beings choose to do. - Author: Martin Seligman
Positive Emotions quotes by Martin Seligman
#65. I do not believe it makes sense to say that nuclear weapons are inherently evil. In certain circumstances, they can play a positive role - as they have in the past. But clearly they have a power to do great harm. - Author: Des Browne
Positive Emotions quotes by Des Browne
#66. The essential mark of the agitator is the high value he places on the emotional response of the public. Whether he attacks or defends social institutions is a secondary matter. - Author: Harold Lasswell
Positive Emotions quotes by Harold Lasswell
#67. We have these earthly bodies. We don't know what they want. Half the time, we pretend they are under our mental thumb, but that is the illusion of the healthy and the protected. Of sedate lovers. For the body has emotions it conceives and carries through without concern for anyone or anything else. Love is one of those, I guess. Going back to something very old knit into the brain as we were growing. Hopeless. Scorching. Ordinary. - Author: Louise Erdrich
Positive Emotions quotes by Louise Erdrich
#68. When we talk about Poetry, with a capital P, we are apt to think only of the more intense emotions or the more magical phrase: nevertheless there are a great many casements in poetry which are not magic, and which do not open on the foam of perilous seas, but are perfectly good windows for all that. - Author: T. S. Eliot
Positive Emotions quotes by T. S. Eliot
#69. I want to make a positive point of Ikea. It makes income inequality a minor distraction. - Author: Greg Gutfeld

Positive Emotions quotes by Criss Jami
#71. It is only light that can extinguish darkness. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Positive Emotions quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#72. You become more conscious, a witness, a watcher of all that goes on inside you. The watcher becomes immediately free from identification. Because he can see the emotions, it is an absolute certainty that "I am not the emotions." He can see the thoughts; the simple conclusion is "I am not my thought process. - Author: Osho
Positive Emotions quotes by Osho
#73. When I was a kid, no one would believe anything positive that you could say about black people. That's a terrible burden. - Author: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Positive Emotions quotes by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
#74. I ground my teeth. "Just when I thought I was getting a handle on this whole Dark One/demon lord/imp thing, you go and throw knockers into the mix. I'm going to have to request that you stop, Adrian. I'm about at my limit of how many impossible things I can believe before breakfast."
He flashed a heart-stoppingly roguish grin at me, his dimples just about bringing me to my knees. "Your middle name wouldn't be Alice, would it?" he asked.
"No, it's Diane, and you're no White Rabbit, so let's just stop pretending we're in Wonderland, OK?"
He laughed and pointed across the tiny square at our destination. I watched him for a moment, seeing a glimpse of the charming, charismatic man he must have been before the demon lord cursed him and leeched away all the softer emotions. - Author: Katie MacAlister
Positive Emotions quotes by Katie MacAlister

America's Declaration of Independence names three kinds of law: the laws of man, of nature and nature's God.

The Book of Change is based on the laws of natural change. They emanate from and depend on divine law and serve as the rightful foundation of civil law. Clearly, laws legislated in ignorance of or in opposition to natural and divine law are not likely to work out well. Policy makers at all levels would do well to give this point careful thought.

In Common Sense, Thomas Paine wrote about the relationship of divine, natural and human law in a way that inspired readers at the time of the American Revolution to fight for freedom from tyranny.

Approaching natural law from the deeper understanding of the ancients could inspire a reinvention of democracy now.

Sages say that freedom from tyranny begins with dispelling ignorance and overcoming toxic, negative emotions. Inalienable freedom starts with the self-awareness and self-mastery which can be gained by diligent use of the I Ching. pp. 3-4. - Author: Patricia E. West
Positive Emotions quotes by Patricia E. West
#76. I think whatever is going on with my brain, I'm very, very - and I'm not saying this as a positive thing, it's just a fact - I'm very creative. I have a very strong imagination, and have since I was a little kid. That is where a lot of my world comes from. It's like I'm off somewhere else. And I can have a problem in life because of that, because I'm always off in some other world thinking about something else. It's constant. - Author: James Gunn
Positive Emotions quotes by James Gunn
#77. Nothing soulful is birthed from force. - Author: Cheryl Richardson
Positive Emotions quotes by Cheryl Richardson
#78. I like the idea of a record being more than one thing emotionally - human beings go through so many emotions in one day, and I like those things sitting next to each other. - Author: Lauren Mayberry
Positive Emotions quotes by Lauren Mayberry
#79. God is the one goal of all our passions and emotions. If you want to be angry, be angry with Him. Chide your Beloved, chide your Friend. Whom else can you safely chide? Mortal man will not patiently put up with your anger; there will be a reaction. If you are angry with me I am sure quickly to react, because I cannot patiently put up with your anger. Say unto the Beloved, "Why do You not come to me; why do You leave me thus alone?" Where is there any enjoyment but in Him? What enjoyment can there be in little clods of earth? - Author: Swami Vivekananda
Positive Emotions quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#80. It occurred to him that there were a lot of stories for kids with stuff like this in them, stuff that threw acid all over your emotions. Hansel and Gretel being turned out into the forest, Bambi's mother getting scragged by a hunter, the death of Old Yeller. It was easy to hurt little kids, easy to make them cry, and this seemed to bring out a strangely sadistic streak in many story-tellers ... including, it seemed, Beryl Evans. - Author: Stephen King
Positive Emotions quotes by Stephen King
#81. You get addicted to emotions. Our endorphins kick in and it's like a high. On the low end you might love roller coasters. On the high end you might be a bank robber or something. - Author: Bryan Cranston
Positive Emotions quotes by Bryan Cranston
#82. The biggest thing was that second person allowed me to trick myself into revealing more about myself. It gave me an authorial distance to get closer to the action and emotions, if that makes sense. - Author: Rob Roberge
Positive Emotions quotes by Rob Roberge
#83. Secretly, I'm in awe of Broadway performers. I would love to perform at that level. I love the exchange with the audience. I love being able to sing and dance to express your emotions and the community and friendships that are formed when working on a theater piece. - Author: Brianna Brown
Positive Emotions quotes by Brianna Brown
#84. People say we need religion when what they really mean is we need police. - Author: H.L. Mencken
Positive Emotions quotes by H.L. Mencken
#85. And then there are the dreams that feel as authentic as reality itself, that seem to exist just as your own life does. Where the emotions you experience there carry over to when you're awake. They are so real, so genuine, that you begin to question your own sanity. And you know that when the day comes that you finally stop dreaming them, you will never stop remembering. - Author: E.J. Mellow
Positive Emotions quotes by E.J. Mellow
#86. The drop from abundance to scarcity produced a decidedly more positive reaction to the cookies than did constant scarcity. - Author: Robert B. Cialdini
Positive Emotions quotes by Robert B. Cialdini
#87. Wickedly Dangerous translates a terrifying figure from folklore , the Baba Yaga, into the smart, resourceful, motorcycle-riding Barbara Yager, who travels with her dragon-disguised-as-a-dog best friend, righting wrongs and helping those in need. But when she stumbles into a town whose children are vanishing, and meets the haunted young sheriff trying to save them, what was a job becomes very personal. This is urban fantasy at its best, with all the magic and mayhem tied together with very human emotions, even when the characters aren't quite human. - Author: Alex Bledsoe
Positive Emotions quotes by Alex Bledsoe
#88. I tried to reach the combatants with my music. I tried to turn my anger into something positive. Myself, and others like me, just tried to keep rock and roll alive. - Author: Eric Burdon

Positive Emotions quotes by M. Night Shyamalan
