They were a delicious bunch but always forgetting the sensible things like food and daylight and remembering only the more intoxicating ones like love and gin. ~ Rachel Joyce
Sensible Things quotes by Rachel Joyce
I keep telling myself sensible things, but I never seem to listen! ~ K. Farrell St. Germain
Sensible Things quotes by K. Farrell St. Germain
It is not therefore the business of philosophy, in our present situation in the universe, to attempt to take in at once, in one view, the whole scheme of nature; but to extend, with great care and circumspection, our knowledge, by just steps, from sensible things, as far as our observations or reasonings from them will carry us, in our enquiries concerning either the greater motions and operations of nature, or her more subtile and hidden works. In this way Sir Isaac Newton proceeded in his discoveries. ~ Colin Maclaurin
Sensible Things quotes by Colin Maclaurin
We don't do sensible things. This is America. ~ Bill Maher
Sensible Things quotes by Bill Maher
Part of that, I think, is being able to tune out folly, as distinguished from recognizing wisdom. You've got whole categories of things you just bat away so your brain isn't cluttered with them. That way, you're better able to pick up a few sensible things to do. ~ Charlie Munger
Sensible Things quotes by Charlie Munger
Somewhere, a long way away, people are doing sensible things like mowing lawns and digging gardens. ~ Michael Palin
Sensible Things quotes by Michael Palin
Wisdom is not to be found in the art of oratory, or in great books, but in a withdrawal from these sensible things and in a turning to the most simple and infinite forms. You will learn how to receive it into a temple purged from all vice, and by fervent love to cling to it until you may taste it and see how sweet That is which is all sweetness. Once this has been tasted, all things which you now consider as important will appear as vile, and you will be so humbled that no arrogance or other vice will remain in you. Once having tasted this wisdom, you will inseparably adhere to it with a chaste and pure heart. You will choose rather to forsake this world and all else that is not of this wisdom, and living with unspeakable happiness you will die. ~ Nicolaus Cusanus
Sensible Things quotes by Nicolaus Cusanus
Doth the Reality of sensible things consist in being perceived? or, is it something distinct from their being perceived, and that bears no relation to the mind? ~ George Berkeley
Sensible Things quotes by George Berkeley
Consider the nature of all worldly sensible things; of those especially, which either ensnare by pleasure, or for their irksomeness are dreadful, or for their outward lustre and show are in great esteem and request, how vile and contemptible, how base and corruptible, how destitute of all true life and being they are. ~ Marcus Aurelius
Sensible Things quotes by Marcus Aurelius
How quickly all things disappear, in the universe the bodies themselves, but in time the remembrance of them; what is the nature of all sensible things, and particularly those which attract with the bait of pleasure or terrify by pain, or are noised abroad by vapoury fame; how worthless, and contemptible, and sordid, and perishable, and dead they are - all this it is the part of the intellectual faculty to observe. To ~ Marcus Aurelius
Sensible Things quotes by Marcus Aurelius
Always begin anew with the day, just as nature does. It is one of the sensible things that nature does. ~ George Edward Woodberry
Sensible Things quotes by George Edward Woodberry
Pure sensism leads inevitably to universal doubt; if reality is in the end reducible to sensible appearance, then, since this is in a state of perpetual flux and self-contradiction, no kind of certitude will any longer be possible. [...] Truth is necessary and immutable; but in the sensible order nothing necessary or immutable is to be found; therefore sensible things will never yield us any truth. ~ Etienne Gilson
Sensible Things quotes by Etienne Gilson
Many sensible things banished from high life find an asylum among the mob. ~ Herman Melville
Sensible Things quotes by Herman Melville
If I do not do sensible things about investments I shall spend my old age in a workhouse, where nobody will understand my jokes. ~ Rebecca West
Sensible Things quotes by Rebecca West
What we're going to do is redouble our efforts on financial regulatory reform, because that has in it sensible things like say on pay, so at least the shareholders are minding the store, sensible things like saying, for heaven's sakes, compensation should be focused on - on long term, so that you don't have rewards for short-term risk-taking. ~ Christina Romer
Sensible Things quotes by Christina Romer
I've never noticed that being nonsensical keeps things from happening. Don't you ever read about politics? ~ Murray Leinster
Sensible Things quotes by Murray Leinster
A lot of things in life won't make sense, so be sure to make the most sense out of those that do. ~ Ashly Lorenzana
Sensible Things quotes by Ashly Lorenzana
To express to you in mere words, our personal feelings on this occasion you must know to be impossible, and particularly so for one who normally has to describe only things outside himself. ~ Melvin Calvin
Sensible Things quotes by Melvin Calvin
When you're in your twenties you always think that 30 is a long ways off, and maybe you'll have things in line when you hit that number - maybe own a house or be married. ~ Hamilton Leithauser
Sensible Things quotes by Hamilton Leithauser
I've never liked urban myths. I've never liked pretending to believe in them; never understood why everyone else doesn't see straight through them. Why is it they've always happened to a friend of a friend - someone you've never met? Why does everyone smile and nod and pull the right faces, when they must know they're not true? Pointless. A waste of breath.
So I sneered at the myths about Scaderstone Pit. It was just an old quarry – nothing more. I never believed in the rumours of discarded dynamite. It had decayed, they said. It exploded at the slightest touch, had even blown someone's hand off. I shrugged off the talk of the toxic waste. It was dumped in the dead of night, they said. The canisters rusting away, leaking deadly poisons that could blind you, burn your lungs. I laughed at the ghost stories. You could hear the moans, they said, of quarrymen buried alive and never found. You could see their nightwalking souls, searching for their poor crushed bodies.
I didn't believe any of it – not one word. Now, after everything that's happened, I wonder whether I should've listened to those stories. Maybe then, these things would've happened to someone else, and I could've smiled and said they were impossible.
But this is not an urban myth. And it did not happen to someone else, but to me. I've set it down as best I can remember. Whether you believe it or not, is up to you. ~ Mikey Campling
Sensible Things quotes by Mikey Campling
Discovering the threads that constitute actual interactions is an essential means of making sense of the world. But perception of overall patterns of things that are contextually related is equally important. ~ Richard J. Borden
Sensible Things quotes by Richard J. Borden
I tell my students that when you write, you should pretend you're writing the best letter you ever wrote to the smartest friend you have. That way, you'll never dumb things down. You won't have to explain things that don't need explaining. You'll assume an intimacy and a natural shorthand, which is good because readers are smart and don't wish to be condescended to. I think about the reader. I care about the reader. Not "audience." Not "readership." Just the reader. ~ Jeffrey Eugenides
Sensible Things quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
There are two things that interest me - and they're both power, ultimately. One is not having it and one is abusing it. ~ Joss Whedon
Sensible Things quotes by Joss Whedon
When all things go bad, do not think so badly about all things, instead think about the things that made all things went bad and change something! ~ Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Sensible Things quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Hope is one of our central emotions, but we are often at a loss when asked to define it. Many of us confuse hope with optimism, a prevailing attitude that "things turn out for the best." But hope differs from optimism. Hope does not arise from being told to "Think Positively," or from hearing an overly rosy forecast. Hope, unlike optimism, is rooted in unalloyed reality. Although there is no uniform definition of hope, I found on that seemed to capture what my patients had taught me. Hope is the elevating feeling we experience when we see - in the mind's eye- a path to a better future. Hope acknowledges the significant obstacles and deep pitfalls along that path. True hope has no room for delusion. ~ Jerome Groopman
Sensible Things quotes by Jerome Groopman
World is crazier and more of it than we think,
Incorrigibly plural. I peel and portion
A tangerine and spit the pips and feel
The drunkenness of things being various. ~ Louis MacNeice
Sensible Things quotes by Louis MacNeice
If a mentally ill person really works at self - control , she can do most things she could do otherwise . ~ Talitha Day Fair
Sensible Things quotes by Talitha Day Fair
I've never meditated for a moment in my life. I don't know how it works. But one of the things you have to do to put yourself in the meditating mode is stop narrating yourself to yourself. ~ Aleksandar Hemon
Sensible Things quotes by Aleksandar Hemon
when things are going too well, don't be foolish enough to trust that it'll continue that way, because some shit will inevitably go down very soon and BOOM, there it is, The Fuckening! ~ Matthew Bracey
Sensible Things quotes by Matthew Bracey
We are so constituted that we believe the most incredible things; and, once they are engraved upon the memory, woe to him who would endeavor to erase them. ~ Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Sensible Things quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Yeah, in my scripts, I don't tend to describe landscape too clearly because I like to keep it really basic and sort of let people paint their own picture. I don't find it helpful to spend a page describing a setting, except for maybe a few key things. ~ Sean Durkin
Sensible Things quotes by Sean Durkin
Confidence is half the battle. You have to believe things will go according to plan, until events prove otherwise. ~ Lisa Wingate
Sensible Things quotes by Lisa Wingate
Um, you know, they have every right to feel the way they do and things are great with me, as you see, I'm very, good shape now and on the ball. Things are happening. ~ Corey Haim
Sensible Things quotes by Corey Haim
Intelligence is not necessarily a good thing, something to value or cultivate. It's more like a fifth wheel - necessary or desirable when things break down. When things go well, it's better to be stupid ... Stupidity is as much a value as intelligence. ~ Susan Sontag
Sensible Things quotes by Susan Sontag
How are things on the edge of space? ~ Tim Lebbon
Sensible Things quotes by Tim Lebbon
The opportunity that is unique [to our] time is what inspires me to do everything I can to move things forward. This is the first time that we have the capacity to understand our place in the greater scheme of things to the extent that we do. ~ Sylvia Earle
Sensible Things quotes by Sylvia Earle
Maybe I am skipping over the city and going from very personal things to the world, from internal experience to giant, far-away-from-space experience. ~ Regina Spektor
Sensible Things quotes by Regina Spektor
The thing with being on a series that runs that long is that the writers run out of things to do. ~ Ted Shackelford
Sensible Things quotes by Ted Shackelford
You can discover new things by changing your perspective and your location ~ Jo Nesbø
Sensible Things quotes by Jo Nesbø
After family, books are the things that make me happy. Books are my solace, my sanctuary from the everyday cares. If I could I would make reading my soul occupation. ~ Neena H. Brar
Sensible Things quotes by Neena H. Brar
Knowing why you're doing something provides the inspiration and motivation to give the extra perspiration needed to persevere when things go south..
..Purpose provides the ultimate glue that can help you stick to the path you've set. When what you do matches your purpose, your life just feels in rhythm, and the path you beat with your feet seems to match the sound in your head and heart. Live with purpose and don't be surprised if you actually hum more and even whistle while you work. ~ Gary Keller
Sensible Things quotes by Gary Keller
I don't want to make her [Maggie] a target again," I said.
Michael sighed patiently. "Harry," he said, as if speaking to a rather slow child,"I'm not sure if you noticed this. But things did not turn out well for the last monster who raised his hand against your child. Or any of his friends. Or associates. Or anyone who worked for him. Or for most of the people he knew. ~ Jim Butcher
Sensible Things quotes by Jim Butcher
Eight inches strong, it is my favourite thing;
If I'm alone at night, I embrace it fully -
A beautiful woman hasn't touched it for ages.
Within my fundoshi there is an entire universe! ~ Ikkyu
Sensible Things quotes by Ikkyu
If we're willing to give up our values in pursuit of the things we want we're willing to give the things we want more value than we are willing to give ourselves. ~ Anthony P. Mauro, Sr.
Sensible Things quotes by Anthony P. Mauro, Sr.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:34 ~ Anonymous
Sensible Things quotes by Anonymous
The fact is that life is like the river: endlessly moving on, ever seeking, exploring, pushing, overflowing its banks, penetrating every crevice with its water. But you see, the mind won't allow that to happen to itself. The mind sees that it is dangerous, risky to live in a state of impermanency, insecurity, so it builds a wall around itself; the wall of tradition, of organized religion, of political and social theories. Family, name,property,the littel virtues that we have cultivated - these are all within the walls, away from life. Life is moving, impermanent, and it ceaselessly tries to penetrate, to break down these walls, behind which there is a confusion an misery. The gods within the walls are false gods, and their writings and philosophies have no meaning because life is beyond
Think on these things chap. 17 ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
Sensible Things quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
I never took the game for granted as far as not having to work on what I needed to do to accomplish all of the things that I wanted to accomplish. ~ Allen Iverson
