#1. Whenever I have doubt, I often use epistemological methods or dialectic methods to come to a rational conclusion. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Rational Conclusion quotes by Debasish Mridha
#2. My instincts told me that death would somehow be ... different. But my rational mind reminded me that I had probably tempted fate one too many times. At least, I thought it was my rational mind. It sure seemed like the usual voice inside my head. Thank God there was only one of them. - Author: M.A. George
Rational Conclusion quotes by M.A. George
#3. Obviously, not everyone in Texas attends church for purely social or nostalgic reasons. There are still plenty of people here who feel the need to advertise their allegiance to God by telling me that they are good Christians, by continuously posting prayer pictures of Jesus on Facebook, or by telling me that no matter how ethically I live, I will surely go to Hell if I don't accept Jesus Christ into my heart. - Author: Gudjon Bergmann
Rational Conclusion quotes by Gudjon Bergmann
#4. Having a gut instinct that told me how to be a moral person might be evolutionarily handy. On the other hand, emotional moral judgment also enables people to do really horrible things to each other, like lynching or "honor" killings, and justify them by calling them "moral." Because sociopaths don't experience morality emotionally, I would argue that we are freed to be more rational and more tolerant. There is something to be said for the impartiality of pure reason - religion-created mass hysteria among the supposedly mentally healthy populace has resulted in much worse damage and carnage in the world than anything sociopaths have caused. (Although I imagine that there may sometimes be sociopaths at the head of it all, whipping up the masses to do their bidding.) - Author: M.E. Thomas
Rational Conclusion quotes by M.E. Thomas
#5. A 'career woman,'" Sylvie said, as if the two words had no place in the same sentence. "A spinster," she added, contemplating the word. Ursula wondered why her mother was working so hard to rile her. "Perhaps you will never marry," Sylvie said, as if in conclusion, as if Ursula's life was as good as over. "Would that be such a bad thing? 'The unmarried daughter,'" Ursula said, tucking into an iced fancy. "It was good enough for Jane Austen. - Author: Kate Atkinson
Rational Conclusion quotes by Kate Atkinson
#6. In conclusion, you can see that there is a place for censors and we only wish that we could tell you where it is. - Author: Pat Paulsen
Rational Conclusion quotes by Pat Paulsen
#7. A survey of oceanic (i.e. remote) islands found that, as far back as records exist, they have been accumulating alien plants. In 1860 the average oceanic island had less than 1 introduced plant for every 10 natives. By 1940 the ratio was 1 alien for every 2 natives, and today the ratio is about 1:1. Despite all these new arrivals there have been very few extinctions among the original inhabitants, so the number of plant species on such islands has approximately doubled. Thus, although left to themselves remote islands tend to have rather few species (compared to similar continental areas at the same latitude), so many species have been introduced to Hawaii that it now has as many plants as a similar area of Mexico. Moreover, the evidence suggests that remote islands are by no means 'full' of plants, and that there is room for even more alien plants to establish, and thus for total plant diversity to increase: at the current rate the average oceanic island will have 3 aliens for every 2 natives by 2060. Do we have any idea how many different plant species might eventually be able to coexist on an island like Hawaii? No, we don't. Or, to express that conclusion in a more general form, in a report from US ecologists Dov Sax and Steve Gaines: 'we have a relatively poor understanding of the processes that ultimately limit how many species can inhabit any given place or area - Author: Ken Thompson
Rational Conclusion quotes by Ken Thompson
#8. Suffer barbaric childhood to give and receive remorselessly; civilized age learns to protect what it has, to neither give nor accept freely, to trust it's own mistrust above faith, and intriguing others above the innocent. Intrigue, after all, is rational, something the mind can sink it's teeth into, and defeat it with the good digestion of reason, a hopeless prospect for the toothless heart, and God only knows what innocence will do next. - Author: William Gaddis
Rational Conclusion quotes by William Gaddis
#9. Metaphoric sheep get no love. There's no worse thing to be compared to, at least among conspiracy theorists. "You're just a sheep," they will say. "You believe what they want you to believe." But this implies that they - the metaphoric shepherds - have something they want you to accept. It implies that these world-altering shepherds are consciously leading their sheeple to a conclusion that plays to their benefit. No one considers the possibility of a shepherd just aimlessly walking around the meadow, pointing his staff in whatever direction he happens to be facing. - Author: Chuck Klosterman
Rational Conclusion quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#10. The spirit of the times may alter, will alter. Our rulers will become corrupt, our people careless ... From the conclusion of this war we shall be going downhill. It will not then be necessary to resort every moment to the people for support. They will be forgotten, therefore, and their rights disregarded. They will forget themselves, but in the sole faculty of making money, and will never think of uniting to affect a due respect for their rights. The shackles, therefore, will be made heavier and heavier, till our rights shall revive or expire in a convulsion. - Author: Thomas Jefferson
Rational Conclusion quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#11. The notion of independence, which is often confused with independent thinking and freedom, has been so marbled by pure bourgeois egoism that we tend to forget that our individuality depends heavily on community support systems and solidarity. It is not by childishly subordinating ourselves to the community on the one hand or by detaching ourselves from it on the other that we become mature human beings. What distinguishes us as social beings, hopefully with rational institutions, from solitary beings who lack any serious affiliations, is our capacities for solidarity with one another, for mutually enhancing our self-development and creativity and attaining freedom within a socially creative and institutionally rich collectivity. - Author: Murray Bookchin
Rational Conclusion quotes by Murray Bookchin
#12. The mourner is in fact ill, but because this state of mind is common and seems so natural to us, we do not call mourning an illness ... . To put my conclusion more precisely: I should say that in mourning the subject goes through a modified and transitory manic-depressive state and overcomes it. - Author: Joan Didion
Rational Conclusion quotes by Joan Didion
#13. Second conclusion: If you can see a bandwagon, it's too late to get on. I think the person who said that to me - Author: Lee Child
Rational Conclusion quotes by Lee Child
#14. Where do we live symbolically? Nowhere except where we participate in the ritual of life. - Author: Carl Jung
Rational Conclusion quotes by Carl Jung
#15. Your condition is NOT your conclusion. - Author: Dale C. Bronner
Rational Conclusion quotes by Dale C. Bronner
#16. Back in 1968, when I was 30, my entire life blew up. I had a life plan, and it collapsed for no rational reason. - Author: Gail Sheehy
Rational Conclusion quotes by Gail Sheehy
#17. Quite the narration in your head, even for a moment, and see for yourself that life is life, and not one minute of it is a retelling or a foretelling. Some things happen; some things don't. That's what makes it all worth seeing, no matter where it goes or how it ends. There is no spinmeister steering it all to a forgone conclusion. - Author: Karen Maezen Miller
Rational Conclusion quotes by Karen Maezen Miller
#18. Science stands for rational thought, faith for superstition and unreason. - Author: Deepak Chopra
Rational Conclusion quotes by Deepak Chopra
#19. Looking down from the heavens, she saw how small, and yet how important each human life is. Drops in the bucket of eternity. She saw her minute place in the organic machine of the Cosmos, witnessed the give and take and the slow, steady swinging of life's pendulum. The world relies on order, pattern, and repetition. The earth spins and swings around the sun with rational, mathematical predictability.

But she also saw the chaotic nature of things. No matter what, you can never know with certainty what will happen. Lightening can strike, the ground can open up and swallow you, and the very air you breathe can tear your life away. - Author: Gwen Mitchell
Rational Conclusion quotes by Gwen Mitchell
#20. In the past, secularists sought to challenge dogma by the use of rational argument, claiming, for example, that miracles described in the Bible are scientifically impossible. - Author: Stephen Kinzer
Rational Conclusion quotes by Stephen Kinzer
#21. Every rational being she believed must have some purpose in life beyond mere pleasure for pleasure's sake. Enjoyment without settled principles,
laudable purposes, mental exertions, internal comfort, were meaningless, and how are these to be acquired in the hurry and tumult of the world? - Author: Lynne Withey
Rational Conclusion quotes by Lynne Withey
#22. Is the beauty of the Whole really enhanced by our agony? And is the Whole really beautiful? And what is beauty? Throughout all his existence man has been striving to hear the music of the spheres, and has seemed to himself once and again to catch some phrase of it, or even a hint of the whole form of it. Yet he can never be sure that he has truly heard it, nor even that there is any such perfect music at all to be heard. Inevitably so, for if it exists, it is not for him in his littleness. But one thing is certain. Man himself, at the very least, is music, a brave theme that makes music also of its vast accompaniment, its matrix of storms and stars. Man himself in his degree is eternally a beauty in the eternal form of things. It is very good to have been man. And so we may go forward together with laughter in our hearts, and peace, thankful for the past, and for our own courage. For we shall make after all a fair conclusion to this brief music that is man. - Author: Olaf Stapledon
Rational Conclusion quotes by Olaf Stapledon
#23. The Experiment is the Experiment." For all its contemptuous insanity, the idea still seemed to have some kind of rational kernel to it. - Author: Arkady Strugatsky
Rational Conclusion quotes by Arkady Strugatsky
#24. God knows the hour of each person's passing. Whatever we did or didn't do for someone we loved, the timing of his or her departure was God's alone. "Thy will be done" is more than a prayer request. It's a forgone conclusion. - Author: Liz Curtis Higgs
Rational Conclusion quotes by Liz Curtis Higgs
#25. The future cannot be predicted, but futures can be invented. It was man's ability to invent which has made human society what it is. The mental processes of inventions are still mysterious. They are rational but not logical, that is to say, not deductive. - Author: Dennis Gabor
Rational Conclusion quotes by Dennis Gabor
#26. Love begets wisdom, thus it is, as often misconceived, more than vain layers of tenderness; it is inherently rational and comprehensive of the problem within the problem: for instance, envy is one of the most excused sins in the media of political correctness. Those you find most attractive, or seem to have it all, are often some of the most insecure at heart, and that is because people assume that they do not need anything but defamation. - Author: Criss Jami
Rational Conclusion quotes by Criss Jami
#27. Without passion, any rational person would give up! - Author: Steve Jobs
Rational Conclusion quotes by Steve Jobs
#28. God always shows us the introduction and the conclusion of our dreams to excite us about the whole task. He doesn't want to show us the daunting body of our dreams because He knows that we'll rather run away from our dreams than to pursue them. - Author: Euginia Herlihy
Rational Conclusion quotes by Euginia Herlihy
#29. The plea agreement negotiated by Janet Reno's Justice Department with Nora, Gene and Trisha Lum is a hoax. It allows two key players in the campaign finance scandal to plead to lesser offenses and effectively concludes a serious investigation that, if taken to a conclusion, could have seriously affected the Clinton Administration's claim that it committed no illegalities in the campaign finance scandal. Nora Lum was a close confidant of Ron Brown and remains close to John Huang. Trisha Lum, her daughter, worked for Brown at the Commerce Department and worked on trade missions. - Author: Larry Klayman
Rational Conclusion quotes by Larry Klayman
#30. As often as a study is cultivated by narrow minds, they will draw from it narrow conclusions. - Author: John Stuart Mill
Rational Conclusion quotes by John Stuart Mill
#31. I think my work has to do with a sense that we are attempting, all the time, to create a logical, rational path through the day. To the left and right there are an amazing set of distractions that we usually can't afford to follow. But the poet is willing to stop anywhere. - Author: Billy Collins
Rational Conclusion quotes by Billy Collins
#32. By thinking you cannot decide. It is not a question of deciding as a logical conclusion, it is a question of choiceless awareness. You need a mind without thoughts. In other words, you need a no-mind, just a pure silence, so you can see directly into things. And out of that clarity will come the choice on its own; you are not choosing. You will act just as a buddha acts. Your action will have beauty, your action will have truth, your action will have the fragrance of the divine. There is no need for you to choose. - Author: Rajneesh
Rational Conclusion quotes by Rajneesh
#33. Anxiety isn't rational. And neither was I. - Author: Kerri Sackville
Rational Conclusion quotes by Kerri Sackville
#34. Rome was not the first state of organized gangsterdom, nor was it the last; but it was the only one that managed to bamboozle posterity into an almost universal admiration. Few rational men admire the Huns, the Nazis or the Soviets; but for centuries, schoolboys have been expected to read Julius Caesar's militaristic drivel ("We inflicted heavy losses upon the enemy, our own casualties being very light") and Cato's revolting incitements to war. They have been led to believe that the Romans had attained an advanced level in the sciences, the arts, law, architecture, engineering and everything else. It is my opinion that the alleged Roman achievements are largely a myth; and I feel it is time for this myth to be debunked a little. What the Romans excelled in was bullying, bludgeoning, butchering and blood baths. Like the Soviet Empire, the Roman Empire enslaved peoples whose cultural level was far above their own. They not only ruthlessly vandalized their countries, but they also looted them, stealing their art treasures, abducting their scientists and copying their technical know-how, which the Romans' barren society was rarely able to improve on. No wonder, then, that Rome was filled with great works of art. But the light of culture which Rome is supposed to have emanated was a borrowed light: borrowed from the Greeks and the other peoples that the Roman militarists had enslaved. - Author: Petr Beckmann
Rational Conclusion quotes by Petr Beckmann
#35. There is no exact principle to be found here. The divine, as Boehme said, is unground - unfathomable, something outside the world as we experience it. But this is a difference of our minds, dearest one. I wish to arrive at revelation on wings, while you advance steadily on foot, magnifying glass in hand. I am a smattering wanderer, seeking God within the outer contours, searching for a new way of knowing. You stand upon the ground, and consider the evidence inch by inch. Your way is more rational and more methodical, but I cannot change my way." "I do have a dreadful love for - Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
Rational Conclusion quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#36. The insane have achieved political respectability while the sane act too good for it all. The irrational celebrate while the rational act bored and above-it-all. - Author: Maureen Dowd
