I grew up thinking that renting is perfectly normal. And then, strangely enough, I never did buy a house. I live in New York City, and I'm still renting. My own personal narrative shows that it is possible to live a respectable life without ever having owned a home. ~ Edmund Phelps
Respectable Life quotes by Edmund Phelps
Once you break one taboo, others soon come thumgbling down. Once you start rolling downhill, you carry on rolling until you reach the lowest point. For someone with no aim in life and who has never known love, leading a respectable life seems utterly pointless and unbearable. ~ Rika Yokomori
Respectable Life quotes by Rika Yokomori
Man is an unoriginal animal. Unoriginal within the law in his daily respectable life, equally unoriginal outside the law. If a man commits a crime, any other crime he commits will resemble it closely. ~ Agatha Christie
Respectable Life quotes by Agatha Christie
Most of us waste this extraordinary thing called life. We have lived forty or sixty years, have gone to the office, engaged ourselves in social activity, escaping in various forms, and at the end of it, we have nothing but an empty, dull, stupid life, a wasted life.

Now, pleasure has created this pattern of social life. We take pleasure in ambition, in competition, in acquiring knowledge or power, or position, prestige, status. And that pursuit of pleasure as ambition, competition, greed, envy, status, domination, power is respectable. It is made respectable by a society which has only one concept: that you shall lead a moral life, which is a respectable life. You can be ambitious, you can be greedy, you can be violent, you can be competitive, you can be a ruthless human being, but society accepts it, because at the end of your ambition, you are either so called successful man with plenty of money, or a failure and therefore a frustrated human being. So social morality is immorality. ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
Respectable Life quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Faith that trusts on Jesus alone for salvation, and not on your respectable life, and the obedience that follows Him, are the indispensable steps to salvation. You admit that you have not taken these decisive steps. Then, however near you are, you are not in Christ. ~ Theodore L. Cuyler
Respectable Life quotes by Theodore L. Cuyler
prophet. Trying to protect me from this life of greed. How ~ James Patterson
Respectable Life quotes by James Patterson
Anything other than free enterprise always means a society of compulsion and lower living standards, and any form of socialism strictly enforced means dictatorship and the total state. That this statement is still widely disputed only illustrates the degree to which malignant fantasy can capture the imagination of intellectuals. ~ Llewellyn Rockwell
Respectable Life quotes by Llewellyn Rockwell
My mind struggled to formulate a coherent though, any thought. I opened my mouth. "Your pajamas have Eeyore on them."
"I like Eeyore. He's sensible. A sober outlook on life never hurt anyone. ~ Ilona Andrews
Respectable Life quotes by Ilona Andrews
I pity people who can't find laughter or at least some bit of amusement in the little doings of the day. I believe I could find something ridiculous even in the saddest moment, if necessary. It has nothing to do with being superficial. It's a matter of joy in life. ~ Sophie Scholl
Respectable Life quotes by Sophie Scholl
Life is full of adventure. There's no such thing as a clear pathway. ~ Guy Laliberte
Respectable Life quotes by Guy Laliberte
Some have suggested that I see my return to political life as a second chance. Not really - I see it as if I had come back from the dead. And I've discovered that being a political Lazarus has a silver lining: When you survive your worst fears, there's very little that can shake you. ~ Andrew M. Cuomo
Respectable Life quotes by Andrew M. Cuomo
If Life Gives You Lemons, Make a Molotov Cocktail ~ Dean Cavanagh
Respectable Life quotes by Dean Cavanagh
Finding a way to extend forgiveness to ourselves is one of our most essential tasks. Just as others have been caught in suffering, so have we. If we look honestly at our life, we can see the sorrows and pain that have led to our own wrongdoing. In this we can finally extend forgiveness to ourselves; we can hold the pain we have caused in compassion. Without such mercy, we will live our own life in exile. ~ Jack Kornfield
Respectable Life quotes by Jack Kornfield
whilst you are a youth, think about the aged; whilst you are an aged, think about the youth ~ Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Respectable Life quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
All things that are living are expression and therefore part of the inherent symbology of life. Art, therefore, that is encumbered with excessive symbolism is extraneous, and from my point of view, useless art. Anyone who understands life needs no handbook of poetry or philosophy to tell him what it is. ~ Marsden Hartley
Respectable Life quotes by Marsden Hartley
Either it's a bad thing to enjoy life, in other words, to experience pleasure - in which case you shouldn't help anyone to do it, but should try to save the whole human race from such a frightful fate - or else, if it's good for other people, and you're not only allowed, but positively obliged to make it possible for them, why shouldn't charity begin at home? ~ Thomas More
Respectable Life quotes by Thomas More
With what destination in mind are you walking, endlessly, endlessly, on those hard paths of suffering? There's no rest where you're looking for it. Look for what you're looking for--but it's not there where you're looking. You're seeking a happy life in a land of death. It's not there. How can there be a happy life where there isn't even life? ~ Augustine Of Hippo
Respectable Life quotes by Augustine Of Hippo
My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more. ~ Walter Matthau
Respectable Life quotes by Walter Matthau
Well, ain't that just the way of the world. Everything come to an end, whether you wants it to or not. All that nature out there: over. The Snare: dead and gone. Even a love that make a man giddy and romantic, that give him a hope and joy he never known, that brave him into taking a slingshot to the impossible and bringing it almost complete to its knees
even a love like that come to an end. Life just ashes to ashes and dust to dust. And there is nothing you can do about it neither. (Homan) ~ Rachel Simon
Respectable Life quotes by Rachel Simon
Milk is very nice, especially with a drop of brandy in it, but the domestic cow is only too glad to be rid of it. A swollen udder is very uncomfortable ~ W. Somerset Maugham
Respectable Life quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
Let him who thinks war is a glorious, golden thing, who loves to roll forth stirring words of exhortation, invoking honour and praise and valour and love of country … Let him but look at a little pile of sodden grey rags that cover half a skull and a shin-bone and what might have been its ribs, or at this skeleton lying on its side, resting half crouching as it fell, perfect that it is headless, and with the tattered clothing still draped round it; and let him realize how grand and glorious a thing it is to have distilled all youth and joy and life into a fetid heap of hideous putrescence! Who is there who has known and seen who can say that victory is worth the death of even one of these? ~ Wade Davis
Respectable Life quotes by Wade Davis
It takes tremendous will to compete in any athletic endeavor, so it meant going to bed early and getting my homework done in advance. I had to sacrifice things, like a social life, to be a skater at 15. But I loved skating so much that it was worth everything to me. ~ Vera Wang
Respectable Life quotes by Vera Wang
There are lots of things I don't understand - say, the latest debates over whether neutrinos have mass or the way that Fermat's last theorem was (apparently) proven recently. But from 50 years in this game, I have learned two things: (1) I can ask friends who work in these areas to explain it to me at a level that I can understand, and they can do so, without particular difficulty; (2) if I'm interested, I can proceed to learn more so that I will come to understand it. Now Derrida, Lacan, Lyotard, Kristeva, etc. -- even Foucault, whom I knew and liked, and who was somewhat different from the rest -- write things that I also don't understand, but (1) and (2) don't hold: no one who says they do understand can explain it to me and I haven't a clue as to how to proceed to overcome my failures. That leaves one of two possibilities: (a) some new advance in intellectual life has been made, perhaps some sudden genetic mutation, which has created a form of "theory" that is beyond quantum theory, topology, etc., in depth and profundity; or (b) ... I won't spell it out. ~ Noam Chomsky
Respectable Life quotes by Noam Chomsky
Life is precious. I encourage you not to spend a moment of it in hate. ~ Carol 'CC' Miller
Respectable Life quotes by Carol 'CC' Miller
It is the memory of this relief that will haunt her in the months to come. It will start to unsettle her tonight when they eat the lasagna and carve up the chocolate cake. It will continue to disturb her when Robbie leaves for boot camp, and later, when he is assigned to duty nearly three thousand miles away at Camp Lejeune. It will scald her when she learns he has been deployed to Iraq. Each day she will think back to this day and remember how she nodded and wiped her eyes. She will remember how Robbie's body seemed to loosen, open up, how he squared his shoulders and embraced her as if he'd been practicing all his life for this moment. Sometimes she thinks she will be haunted every day by the memory of the relief she felt when Robbie asked her to let him go. And she did. ~ Elizabeth Marro
Respectable Life quotes by Elizabeth Marro
You need to answer questions on where, when and what to do ~ Sunday Adelaja
Respectable Life quotes by Sunday Adelaja
Nature is not personal. She is the compound of all these processes which move through the universe to effect the results we know as Life and of all the ordinances which govern that universe and that make Life continuous. She is no more the Hebrew's Jehovah than she is the Physicist's Force; she is as much Providence as she is Electricity; she is not the Great Pattern any more than she is the Blind Chance. ~ Luther Burbank
Respectable Life quotes by Luther Burbank
Why do you weep, child? We of the Floating World live only for the moment, giving all our time to the pleasures of cherry blossoms and snow and maple leaves, the calling of a cricket, the beauty of the moon, waning and growing and being reborn, singing our songs and drinking cha and saké, knowing perfumes and the touch of silks, caressing for pleasure, and drifting, always drifting. Listen, child: never sad, always drifting as a lily on the current in the stream of life. How lucky you are, Kiku-chan, you're a Princess of Ukiyo, the Floating World, drift, live for the moment. . . . ~ James Clavell
Respectable Life quotes by James Clavell
Sometimes we make being happy so difficult. And being thankful such a chore. ~ Carew Papritz
Respectable Life quotes by Carew Papritz
This life required scars,...
Some were on the outside, and some they carried on the inside.

But scars weren't shameful. They meant survival. They meant putting in work.

They meant sticking around and getting through the hard stuff just on the chance that things could get better. ~ T.S. Joyce
Respectable Life quotes by T.S. Joyce
The rain comes down harder as I write. It sheets off the roof in torrents. I wish it would pound against me. Pound the life from my body. The flesh from my bones. The pain from my heart. ~ Jennifer Donnelly
Respectable Life quotes by Jennifer Donnelly
Then there were those girls who became midwives: girls who could not get enough of the tiniest of babies - girls who would grow into women who absolutely reveled in the magnificent process of birth ... The difference between a woman who becomes an OB and the women who becomes and midwife has less to do with education, philosophy or upbringing than with the depth of her appreciation for the miracle of labor and for life in its moment of emergence. ~ Chris Bohjalian
Respectable Life quotes by Chris Bohjalian
We all have people who are genuinely love us, we have those who hate us with a passion and we have those who imitate us resentfully in life. But in the midst of all, your elegant thanksgiving table will be set before their eyes and they'll all be invited to celebrate your thanksgiving celebration with you. ~ Euginia Herlihy
Respectable Life quotes by Euginia Herlihy
I never made a decision in my life that wasn't one hundred per cent selfish. ~ John Updike
Respectable Life quotes by John Updike
But what he didn't understand was that this dreamland was preferable,walking through this life half-sleeping,everything at arm's length or farther away.
I understood those mermaids.I didn't care if they sang to me.All I wanted was to block out all the human voices as they called me name again and again,pulling me upward into light,to drown. ~ Sarah Dessen
Respectable Life quotes by Sarah Dessen
Sojourner [Truth]'s life exemplifies the process that occurs within ourselves as we grow to understand that we hold the authority to shape our own lives. This inner authority came when she embraced all of herself, which enabled her to speak from an authentic voice. ~ Helen LaKelly Hunt
Respectable Life quotes by Helen LaKelly Hunt
Unless we encounter God, speculating about God becomes nothing more than abstract conjecture and theorizing that has little impact on daily life. ~ N Graham Standish
Respectable Life quotes by N Graham Standish
Jesus said "Give us THIS DAY our daily bread", knowing that you cannot fight today's battles with yesterday's bread. Knowing that you cannot fight today's battles with the hope of tomorrow's bread. Knowing that today you will be nourished by this daily bread, and it's what you have to fight today's battle. ~ Steve Maraboli
Respectable Life quotes by Steve Maraboli
One has to choose thrill of learning over earning. knowledge before power, curious experience than money and safe family life. That's spirit of my favorite youth. ~ Jay Vasavada
Respectable Life quotes by Jay Vasavada
I love love, and I love life. I love. I just love. It's just great. It's the most enduring element we have is love. ~ Gary Busey
Respectable Life quotes by Gary Busey
Liberty and freedom were the primary reason that people wanted to come here. They wanted to escape bondage, slavery, tyranny, poverty, whatever, where they lived. It was America that promised a much better life. ~ Rush Limbaugh
Respectable Life quotes by Rush Limbaugh
No life is a waste," the Blue Man said. "The only time we waste is the time we spend thinking we're alone. ~ Mitch Albom
Respectable Life quotes by Mitch Albom
If it were sufficient to love, things would be too easy. The more one loves the stronger the absurd grows. ~ Albert Camus
