And also I think the rise of other, you could say, destinations for international jihadis mean that Pakistan isn't necessarily the place where people from all over the world who want to engage in these activities gravitate to.

Thinking quotes by Mohsin Hamid

So, I knew it would be particularly painful and it was, especially for my father. - Author: Melissa Febos
Thinking quotes by Melissa Febos

Thinking quotes by Jodi Picoult
#29. In my dear pine-clad mountains of the Harz There's a pitchlike smell, a smell I favor Most of all, excepting that of sulphur. But here among these Greeks there's not a trace Of anything like that. I'm curious To find out what they use below in their Hell To stoke the fires with, their kind of fuel. DRYAD.

Thinking quotes by Elmore Leonard

Thinking quotes by Neil Gaiman
#49. Before one actually visits them, everyone tends to think of their favorite countries as one grand Disneyland filled with national monuments and historical treasures conveniently laid out for easy viewing, when what they really are filled with, of course, is people going to work, laundromats and places to buy rat poison. - Author: Bette Midler
Thinking quotes by Bette Midler

Thinking quotes by Nelson Mandela
#52. I have a history, a long history of being stereotyped as a five-foot-two woman, which is very limiting. I've worked so hard to create characters that have dignity. And I think everybody knows that I have a very pro-woman message in my work - and in my life. - Author: Reese Witherspoon
Thinking quotes by Reese Witherspoon
#53. The boring people are the worst. I think it's obvious, I think people have always had phobias about flying for years even before 9/11 and everything like that. It just taps into that and it taps into who you are going to sit next to on the plane. - Author: Cillian Murphy
Thinking quotes by Cillian Murphy
#54. I'd had a cold that day and wasn't as powerful as usual, otherwise Alyss would never have done so well," Redd said as, in the alcove, the final image dissolved.

Thinking quotes by Malachy McCourt
#59. Now, suppose that a homeowner puts down only 3% of their own money or 3.5% for the FHA. That means if prices go down by only 3%, the house will be in negative equity and it would pay the homeowner just to walk away and say, "The house now is worth less than the mortgage I owe. I think I'm just going to move out and buy a cheaper house." So it's very risky when you have only a 3% or 3.5% equity for the loan. The bank really isn't left with much cushion as collateral. - Author: Michael Hudson
Thinking quotes by Michael Hudson
#60. Our children may save us if they are taught to care properly for the planet; but if not, it may be back to the Ice Age or the caves from where we first emerged. Then we'll have to view the universe above from a cold, dark place. No more jet skis, nuclear weapons, plastic crap, broken pay phones, drugs, cars, waffle irons, or television. Come to think of it, that might not be a bad idea. - Author: Jimmy Buffett
Thinking quotes by Jimmy Buffett
#61. Just think, IBM and DEC in the same room, and we did it. - Author: Ken Thompson
Thinking quotes by Ken Thompson

Thinking quotes by Vincent Kartheiser
#63. But do we know how to make love stay?'
I can't even think about it. The best I can do is play it day by day. - Author: Tom Robbins
Thinking quotes by Tom Robbins
#64. I think every one who has some vague belief in God, until he becomes a Christian, has the idea of an exam, or of a bargain in his mind. The first result of real Christianity is to blow that idea into bits. When they find it blown into bits, some people think this means that Christianity is a failure and give up. They seem to imagine that God is very simple-minded! In fact, of course, He knows all about this. One of the very things Christianity was designed to do was to blow this idea to bits. God has been waiting for the moment at which you discover that there is no question of earning a pass mark in this exam, or putting Him in your debt.

Then comes another discovery. Every faculty you have, your power of thinking or of moving your limbs from moment to moment, is given you by God. If you devoted every moment of your whole life exclusively to His service you could not give Him anything that was not in a sense His own already. So that when we talk of a man doing anything for God or giving anything to God, I will tell you what it is really like.

It is like a small child going to its father and saying, "Daddy, give me sixpence to buy you a birthday present." Of course, the father does, and he is pleased with the child's present. It is all very nice and proper, but only an idiot would think that the father is sixpence to the good on the transaction. When a man has made these two discoveries God can really get to work. It is after this that real life begins. - Author: C.S. Lewis
Thinking quotes by C.S. Lewis
#65. I think it's a terrible system, but money in politics is like water running downhill
it finds its way. - Author: Jonathan Alter
Thinking quotes by Jonathan Alter
#66. Although I was able to maintain a pleasant expression, I was mentally throwing up in her face. - Author: Augusten Burroughs
Thinking quotes by Augusten Burroughs
#67. The cool thing about Watchmen is it has this really complicated question that it asks, which is: who polices the police or who governs the government? Who does God pray to? Those are pretty deep questions but also pretty fun questions. Kind of exciting. It tries to subvert the superhero genre by giving you these big questions, moral questions. Why do you think you're on a fun ride? Suddenly you're like how am I supposed to feel about that? - Author: Zack Snyder
Thinking quotes by Zack Snyder
#68. In ways that we have barely begun to understand, trillions upon trillions of reflexive chemical reactions add up to a mobile, thinking, decision-making you - or, come to that, a rather less reflective but still incredibly organized dung beetle. Every living thing, never forget, is a wonder of atomic engineering. - Author: Bill Bryson
Thinking quotes by Bill Bryson
#69. I think there are a lot more writers who are actors than you know; they just don't have roles on famous TV shows that you recognize. - Author: Danny Strong
Thinking quotes by Danny Strong

#71. I think China will do nothing to obstruct it, and they probably will go along with it. - Author: Henry A. Kissinger
Thinking quotes by Henry A. Kissinger

Thinking quotes by Nicholas Sparks

Thinking quotes by Marco Rubio
#74. Where I was born and where and how I have lived is unimportant. It is what I have done with where I have been that should be of interest. - Author: Georgia O'Keeffe
Thinking quotes by Georgia O'Keeffe
#75. I just close my eyes and act like I'm a 3-year-old. I try to get as close to a childlike level as possible because we were all artists back then. So you just close your eyes and think back to when you were as young as you can remember and had the least barriers to your creativity. - Author: Kanye West
Thinking quotes by Kanye West
#76. Certainly a visitor from Mars descending upon a colony of birth-injured cripples, dwarfs and hunchbacks...could not deduce what they should have been. But then let us not study cripples, but the closest thing we can get to whole, healthy men. In them, we find qualitative differences, a different system of motivation, emotion, value, thinking and perceiving. In a certain sense, only the saints are mankind. All the rest are cripples. - Author: Abraham H. Maslow
Thinking quotes by Abraham H. Maslow
#77. I go backwards and forwards, recapturing the past, wondering about the future - and, most unreasonably, I find myself longing for the past more than for the future. - Author: Dodie Smith
Thinking quotes by Dodie Smith
#78. I'm livin' in times where my daughters are found around
Kids who can't afford thinking caps ...
But always found drinkin' raps and eatin' off beats,
Claimin' laws of the streets. But who made the laws?
Everybody playin' rebel with no sign of a cause. - Author: Kelvin Mercer
Thinking quotes by Kelvin Mercer
#79. You know, all the evil in the world, all the sadness comes from not having a good answer to that question: What do I do next? You just keep thinking of good things to do, lad. You'll be all right. We'll all be all right. I wanted you to know that. - Author: Geoff Ryman
Thinking quotes by Geoff Ryman
#80. To be conscious that we are perceiving or thinking is to be conscious of our own existence. - Author: Aristotle.
Thinking quotes by Aristotle.
#81. Personally, I like films that make me a little bit uncomfortable because I think you're uncomfortable when something is real. - Author: Alice Englert
Thinking quotes by Alice Englert
#82. Your two selves: Most people are not aware of the fact that they have two different selves. You have a mind and a spirit (consciousness), and though they seem like one thing, they are separate. The way to realize that this is true is to realize that something has to be listening to the thoughts created by your mind.

What is it that hears your thoughts?

There is the part of you that thinks and the part that hears the thoughts. The thinking part is your mind; the part that hears the thoughts is your spiritual-self. You do not actually hear thoughts through your ears, because your mind is already inside your head. The point is, your spiritual-self receives the things the mind creates in a similar way to hearing them.

Check it out: Just ask yourself, what is it that is hearing the thoughts you are thinking right now?

It is your spiritual-self, the same thing that receives all life. - Author: Michael Smith
Thinking quotes by Michael Smith

Thinking quotes by Caroline Lucas

Thinking quotes by Margaret Of Valois
#86. Americans tended to think of war as something that had to be done from time to time, for a particular purpose or goal. They fought not for the sake of fighting but for the sake of winning. - Author: David Hackett Fischer
Thinking quotes by David Hackett Fischer
#87. I think ultimately what you really want is a few people within any label that are into the band enough to really work on it every day for a long time and to actually try a little bit. But obviously, the major labels have more money to spend, so if they feel like spending it, they have bigger resources there when you need them. It doesn't always necessarily translate into them doing a better job for a band, but I think especially if you're playing the game of commercial radio and making videos and stuff like that, that's sort of an expensive proposition. - Author: Adam Schlesinger
Thinking quotes by Adam Schlesinger
#88. I have it in my mind that classification is a necessary condition of the working of the mental implement but that it is a departure from the objective truth of things, that classification is very serviceable for the practical purposes of life but a very doubtful preliminary to those fine penetrations the philosophical purpose, in its more arrogant moods, demands. All the peculiarities of my way of thinking derive from that.

I submit to you that syllogism is based on classification, that all hard logical reasoning tends to imply and is apt to imply a confidence in the objective reality of classification. Consequently in denying that I deny the absolute validity of logic. Classification and number, which in truth ignore the fine differences of objective realities, have in the past of human thought been imposed upon things. [...] The forceps of our minds are clumsy forceps, and crush the truth a little in taking hold of it.

It was about this difficulty that the mind of Plato played a little inconclusively all his life. For the most part he tended to regard the idea as the something behind reality, whereas it seems to me that the idea is the more proximate and less perfect thing, the thing by which the mind, by ignoring individual differences, attempts to comprehend an otherwise unmanageable number of unique realities. - Author: H.G. Wells
Thinking quotes by H.G. Wells
#89. You'd better be thinking of me when you smile like that," Cooper said, now standing beside me. I hadn't heard him come into the kitchen. I bumped his hip with mine. "Of course I'm thinking about you." "Then why aren't you hard?" he asked, looking pointedly at my crotch. Before I could say anything, he said, "They have pills now, for old guys who can't get hard. - Author: N.R. Walker
Thinking quotes by N.R. Walker
#90. If you are relaxing and subconsciously thinking about your coming race, you are going to perform at just about 100 percent efficiency. - Author: Mark Spitz
Thinking quotes by Mark Spitz
#91. I like computers. I like the Internet. It's a tool that can be used. But don't be misled into thinking that these technologies are anything other than aspects of a degenerate economic system. - Author: Jerry Brown
Thinking quotes by Jerry Brown
#92. A pipe is greater than a bong. Because when you're smoking a pipe at least it makes you look like you're thinking about something. - Author: Demetri Martin
Thinking quotes by Demetri Martin
#93. I'm just a sucker for new-agey synth sounds and instrumentation. I wasn't really thinking of soft rock, but I know that kind of quiet-storm format uses a lot of these sounds. - Author: Dan Bejar
Thinking quotes by Dan Bejar
#94. There is a past which is gone forever, but there is a future which is still our own. - Author: Frederick William Robertson
Thinking quotes by Frederick William Robertson

Thinking quotes by Richard Ford
#97. It is not like studying German, where you mull along, in a groping, uncertain way, for thirty years; and at last, just as you think you've got it, they spring the subjunctive on you, and there you are. No- and I see now plainly enough, that the great pity about the German language is, that you can't fall off it and hurt yourself. There is nothing like that feature to make you attend strictly to business. - Author: Mark Twain
Thinking quotes by Mark Twain
#98. If you think there is such a thing as an unimportant game, just try losing one. - Author: Gene Stallings
Thinking quotes by Gene Stallings

Thinking quotes by Peyton Manning
#103. The visuals and the audio, could stand by themselves in a way. But the whole idea of the thing, is that they would exist together. So I think together, they're way more of a stronger thing. You could listen to just the music, or just watch the video, but I think it would really mean ... obviously it would just be half the experience. - Author: Panda Bear
Thinking quotes by Panda Bear
#104. There is a group of entrepreneurs pushing the envelope, government officials that are making significant changes despite the odds, and visionary writers, academics, and colleagues whose work confirms, amplifies, and stretches my own thinking. - Author: Robin Chase
Thinking quotes by Robin Chase
#105. Why run? I run because I am an animal. I run because it is part of my genetic wiring. I run because millions of years of evolution have left me programmed to run. And finally, I run because there's no better way to see the sun rise and set ... What the years have shown me is that running clarifies the thinking process as well as purifies the body. I think best - most broadly and most fully - when I am running. - Author: Amby Burfoot
Thinking quotes by Amby Burfoot

Thinking quotes by Mike Tyson

Thinking quotes by Pamela Druckerman
#108. In my experience, you always think you know what you're doing; you always think you can explain, but you always discover, years later, that you didn't and you couldn't. This leads me to suspect that the principal function of human reason is to rationalize what your lizard brain demands of you. That's my idea. - Author: Dave Hickey
Thinking quotes by Dave Hickey

Thinking quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#111. All this shouldn't last; but it will, always; the human 'always' of course, a century, two centuries ... and after that it will be different, but worse. We were the Leopards, the Lions; those who'll take our place will be little jackals, hyenas; and the whole lot of us, Leopards, jackals, and sheep, we'll all go on thinking ourselves the salt of the earth. - Author: Giuseppe Tomasi Di Lampedusa
Thinking quotes by Giuseppe Tomasi Di Lampedusa

Thinking quotes by Denis Halliday
#114. I think as a consequence of that, there is also a fair amount of uncertainty about engaging in political activity that would be immediately suspect and seen as evidence as a sort of resurgent militancy. - Author: Paikiasothy Saravanamuttu
Thinking quotes by Paikiasothy Saravanamuttu

Thinking quotes by Scott Eastwood
#116. 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
Thinking quotes by James Gunn
#117. You don't need incredible resources to impact another human being. You can make a difference by being conscious, by thinking of creative ways to make others feel good about themselves. - Author: Lucy Kaylin
Thinking quotes by Lucy Kaylin
#118. Who you going to tell when the repercussions spin, showing off your ass because you think it's a trend. - Author: Lauryn Hill
Thinking quotes by Lauryn Hill
#119. I strongly wish for what I faintly hope; like the daydreams of melancholy men, I think and think in things impossible, yet love to wander in that golden maze. - Author: John Dryden
Thinking quotes by John Dryden
#120. Everybody in hip-hop discriminates against gay people. Matter of fact, the exact opposite word of 'hip-hop,' I think, is 'gay.' Like yo, you play a record and if it's wack, 'That's gay, dog!' And I wanna just come on TV and just tell my rappers, just tell my friends, 'Yo, stop it, fam.' - Author: Kanye West
Thinking quotes by Kanye West
#121. Perhaps no two events ever united so intimately and forceably to combat and expel prejudice, as the Revolution of America, and the Alliance with France. Their effects are felt, and their influence already extends as well to the old world as the new. Our style and manner of thinking have undergone a revolution, more extraordinary than the political revolution of the country. We see with other eyes; we hear with other ears; and think with other thoughts, than those we formerly used. - Author: Thomas Paine
Thinking quotes by Thomas Paine
#122. My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and I do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier. - Author: Anthony Hopkins
Thinking quotes by Anthony Hopkins
#123. The thing that is really hard about adaptation is that I try to only pick things I love because if it is something where you think, "Oh, that sounds like an interesting idea but I don't love it," then I can't do my job well. - Author: Andy Weir
Thinking quotes by Andy Weir
#124. Don't you sometimes find it hard to remember God all through your work?" asked Clementina.
"I don't try to consciously remember Him every moment. For He is in everything, whether I am thinking of it or not. When I go fishing, I go to catch God's fish. When I take Kelpie out, I am teaching one of God's wild creatures. When I read the Bible or Shakespeare, I am listening to the word of God, uttered in each after its own kind. When the wind blows on my face, it is God's wind. - Author: George MacDonald
Thinking quotes by George MacDonald
#125. People always - I think were surprised about me connecting with folks in small town Iowa. And the reason I did was - first of all, I had the benefit that at the time nobody expected me to win. And so I wasn't viewed through this prism of Fox News and conservative media making me scary. At the time, I didn't think seem scary, other than just having a funny name. I seemed young. - Author: Barack Obama
Thinking quotes by Barack Obama
#126. The media nowadays has given the message to adults. Don't try new things, don't look foolish because we will catch you and then broadcast it to the world. I think children don't have that. - Author: Jamie Lee Curtis
Thinking quotes by Jamie Lee Curtis
#127. Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word, or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent. - Author: George Orwell
Thinking quotes by George Orwell
#128. Digital technology, you see, is not the villain here. It simply offers another dimension. I'm not sure if it's a farther remove from reality than analogue. I think if we can speak of reality, if reality and representation can be spoken of in the same sentence, if reality even exists any more, digital is simply another way of encoding that reality. - Author: Lewis Baltz
Thinking quotes by Lewis Baltz
#129. To cultivate sympathy you must be among living creatures, and thinking about them; and to cultivate admiration, you must be among beautiful things and looking at them. - Author: John Ruskin
Thinking quotes by John Ruskin
#130. It's family, and it's faith, and it's friends, and it's not the glamour of the Presidency, or the wonder of going to receive the Nobel Prize. All those are important, of course. But maybe it's just that I'm 71 years old now. It's family, and it's faith, and it's friends. I would tell them that. Don't forget that. In your brilliance, don't turn your back on your friends. Don't think you're entitled to something, you're smarter than the next guy. - Author: George H. W. Bush
Thinking quotes by George H. W. Bush
#131. My study of chess was accompanied by a strong attraction to music, and it was probably thanks to this that from childhood I became accustomed to thinking of chess as an art, for all the science and sport involved in it. - Author: Vasily Smyslov
Thinking quotes by Vasily Smyslov
#132. We'll sort of get over the marriage first and then maybe look at the kids. But obviously we want a family so we'll have to start thinking about that. - Author: Prince William
Thinking quotes by Prince William
#133. People think that the ocean is big enough to sustain anything we throw at it - its hard to get into your head that it's actually finite. - Author: Glenn Close
Thinking quotes by Glenn Close
#134. I took Beetle home thinking that after the Korean War was over, I would have to take him out of the Army. I thought, well, what am I going to do with him? - Author: Mort Walker
Thinking quotes by Mort Walker
#135. I say, "I love you."

She says, "I love you too." And then she laughs. "It's kind of crazy. I mean you."

"I know. What the hell?"

She covers her mouth with one hand, but her eyes are shining. I'm thinking about a field of grass on a summer day. I'm thinking about the sun and being warmed from the inside and warmed from the outside.

I take her hand under the gray-blue sky and I'm home. - Author: Jennifer Niven
Thinking quotes by Jennifer Niven
#136. Real love, well, it means sacrifice. It means thinking of the other person's needs before your own. - Author: Gemma Malley
Thinking quotes by Gemma Malley
#137. I think the difference between El Salvador and Nicaragua is that in Nicaragua you had a popular insurrection, and in El Salvador you had a revolution. - Author: Bianca Jagger
Thinking quotes by Bianca Jagger
#138. My being consists of matter and form, that is, of soul and body; annihilation will reach neither of them, for they were never produced out of nothing. The consequence is, that every part of me will serve to make something in the world; and this again will change into another part through an infinite succession of change. This constant method of alteration gave me my being, and my father before me, and so on to eternity backward: for I think I may speak thus, even though the world be confined within certain determinate periods. - Author: Marcus Aurelius
Thinking quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#139. Darwinism is not a sufficient condition for a phenomenon like Nazism but I think it's certainly a necessary one, - Author: David Berlinski
Thinking quotes by David Berlinski
#140. But it's the things that preceded it that made that happen, and of course now someone like me thinks, well, if I can do that ... then there are a lot of other things that are possible. - Author: Lou Reed
Thinking quotes by Lou Reed
#141. I still love the music and it's still plays a part in what I do but I never 'turned my back' on garage. I was always doing R&B with, say, Walking Away. It's wonderful that I was classed as the king of 2-step and a pioneer, but it's had its turn, I think. - Author: Craig David
Thinking quotes by Craig David
#142. You have to engage with people who are different from you and try to work with their thinking and their mind. That's a real challenge. - Author: Jeanette Winterson
Thinking quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#143. Sometimes the same negative patterns are happening in our lives because we keep thinking the same negative thoughts. The pattern and the cycle repeat itself until we break it by replacing our negative thoughts, beliefs and faith with more positive hopeful ones. - Author: Jeanette Coron
Thinking quotes by Jeanette Coron
#144. I think the invitation offered the non-black reader is to join us in this expression of our familiarity and via that joining, come to understand that when black people come together to celebrate and rejoice in black critical thinking, we do so not to exclude or to separate, but to participate more fully in world community. However, we must first be able to dialogue with one another, to give one another subject-to-subject recognition that is an act of resistance that is part of the decolonizing, anti-racist process. - Author: Bell Hooks
Thinking quotes by Bell Hooks
#145. I don't think leaders are born. Well, they're born; everybody's born, but I think leadership can be enhanced, they can be developed, and I think that it's important we do that, particularly with our youngsters. - Author: Pat Williams
Thinking quotes by Pat Williams
#146. I believe that order is better than chaos, creation better than destruction. I prefer gentleness to violence, forgiveness to vendetta. On the whole I think knowledge is preferable to ignorance, and I am sure human sympathy is more valuable than ideology. - Author: Leo Tolstoy
Thinking quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#147. I'd be staring at you and thinking, I should ask, I should ask, I should ask; do you want to be in a stable monogamous relationship for the rest of your life? - Author: Sachin Kundalkar
Thinking quotes by Sachin Kundalkar
#148. The Russian people are suffering from economic fatigue and from disillusionment with the Allies! The world thinks the Russian Revolution is at an end. Do not be mistaken. The Russian Revolution is just beginning. - Author: Alexander Kerensky
Thinking quotes by Alexander Kerensky
#149. (The error in reasoning is a bit from wishful thinking, because education is considered "good"; I wonder why people don't make the epiphenomenal association between the wealth of a country and something "bad," say, decadence, and infer that decadence, or some other disease of wealth like a high suicide rate, also generates wealth.) - Author: Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Thinking quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#150. Of course, there are different truths on different levels. Things are true relative to other things; "long" and "short" relate to each other, "high" and "low," and so on. But is there any absolute truth? Something self-sufficient, independently true in itself? I don't think so. - Author: Dalai Lama
Thinking quotes by Dalai Lama
#151. Antique art has come down to us in a fragmentary condition, and we have virtuously adapted our taste to this necessity. Almost all our favorite specimens of Greek sculpture, from the sixth century onward, were originally parts of compositions, and if we were faced with the complete group in which the Charioteer of Delphi was once a subsidiary figure, we might well experience a moment of revulsion. We have come to think of the fragment as more vivid, more concentrated, and more authentic. - Author: Kenneth Clark
Thinking quotes by Kenneth Clark
#152. One more time? We've done this. We've done this at least four times where there's a new government program to help homeowners who have trouble with their mortgages. None of these programs have worked. I don't know why anyone would think that this next idea is going to work. All it does is delay the clearing of the market. As soon as the market clears and we understand where the prices really are - [that] will be the most important thing we can do in order to improve home values around the country. - Author: John Boehner
Thinking quotes by John Boehner
#153. I got to thinking - when it was too late - you have to reach out to people. To your family, too. You can't just let them sit there, you should put your hand out. If they slap it back, well you reach out again if you care enough. If you don't care enough, you forget about them, if you can. - Author: Cynthia Voigt
Thinking quotes by Cynthia Voigt
#154. I think the difference between me and some people is that I'm content to do my little bit. Sometimes people think they have to do big things in order to make change. But if each one would light a candle we'd have a tremendous light. - Author: Thea Bowman
Thinking quotes by Thea Bowman
#155. Would he really want us here ... forever? Because forever was what I was thinking when I agreed to move. I never would have done it, if it wasn't about forever. - Author: Jodi LaPalm
Thinking quotes by Jodi LaPalm
#156. I think that is the fight that we have to wage if we're to save the middle class. And I do have doubts about whether Hillary Clinton or whether any Republican candidate out there is prepared to take on the big money interests who control so much of our economy and as a result of Citizens United, our political process as well. - Author: Lindsey Graham
Thinking quotes by Lindsey Graham
#157. When I think of nu-metal, I think of Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot and even Chevelle - those types of bands. - Author: Austin Carlile
Thinking quotes by Austin Carlile

Thinking quotes by James Geary
#160. No, I think that a person writes a poem because they have an inner urge of something that they want to express, and I think it's that inner urge that you want to express when you write a piece of music. - Author: Leo Ornstein
Thinking quotes by Leo Ornstein
#161. I've dealt with a few method actors, and I don't know if should say this, but I think it's a bunch of nonsense. I think it's film acting and you just have to be on when the camera is rolling. - Author: Natalie Portman
Thinking quotes by Natalie Portman
#162. I can't work any harder. I can't do any more. I am literally just blown away and humbled by the volunteers and how hard they're working. I think they've got a sense that they're going to be part of something bigger than themselves. - Author: John Kasich
Thinking quotes by John Kasich
#163. Some tourists think Amsterdam is a city of sin, but in truth it is a city of freedom. And in freedom, most people find sin. - Author: John Green
Thinking quotes by John Green
#164. When you win the toss - bat. If you are in doubt, think about it, then bat. If you have very big doubts, consult a colleague then bat. - Author: W. G. Grace
Thinking quotes by W. G. Grace
#165. You are your own business, so micro manage it as though your life depended on it, because it does. - Author: Jevon Scott
Thinking quotes by Jevon Scott
#166. I think we have a fascinating new and quite dominant input into politics - and it wont go away. From time to time, people articulate a view that we should ban opinion polls, but that's nonsense. - Author: Jim Bolger
Thinking quotes by Jim Bolger
#167. What you wish to do you are apt to think you ought to do. - Author: Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach
Thinking quotes by Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach
#168. I don't want to become this lazy person, a guy who thinks in terms of New Year's resolutions. I really do want to see a change in myself in certain ways, but I want to figure out exactly what they are and not have it be like a diet that I'm trying. - Author: Blake Mills
Thinking quotes by Blake Mills
#169. I think prices have been moving more on speculation than reality. But this is a market that has been driven by fear for two or three years. - Author: James Williams
Thinking quotes by James Williams
#170. I spent so many years just saying what I felt without thinking about the ramifications, without understanding that I have this opinion but not everyone might share that opinion and now they don't like me because of it. - Author: Katherine Heigl
Thinking quotes by Katherine Heigl
#171. They say certain people aren't good soldiers because if they're in a foxhole all night - you know, if you're creative and smart, you're thinking about all the different ways someone is going to blow your head off. But if you're not that smart, you're just like chilling out. And I feel like that in life. I'm just in the foxhole all fucking day thinking about everything that's going to go wrong in every possible way. - Author: Judd Apatow
Thinking quotes by Judd Apatow

#176. Life is not always like chess. Just because you have the king surrounded, don't think he is not capable of hurting you. - Author: Ron Livingston
Thinking quotes by Ron Livingston
#177. You know what they didn't do, though? They didn't, not one single time, say, "What were you thinking?!" Not because they knew or because they understood - I really don't think they did. They didn't ask that because I sure as hell didn't stab myself in the back, and when a radical extremist stabs someone in the back, the only person at fault is the radical extremist. - Author: Hank Green
Thinking quotes by Hank Green
#178. To secure the safety of the navigation of the Mississippi River I would slay millions. On that point I am not only insane, but mad ... I think I see one or two quick blows that will astonish the natives of the South and will convince them that, though to stand behind a big cottonwood and shoot at a passing boat is good sport and safe, it may still reach and kill their friends and families hundreds of miles off. For every bullet shot at a steamboat, I would shoot a thousand 30-pounder Parrots into even helpless towns on Red, Ouachita, Yazoo, or wherever a boat can float or soldier march. - Author: William Tecumseh Sherman
Thinking quotes by William Tecumseh Sherman
#179. In the 1970s, I think that there was probably a higher degree of respect for science, of hope about the future, and the future-oriented vision. - Author: Ann Druyan
Thinking quotes by Ann Druyan
#180. The average man never really thinks from end to end of his life. The mental activity of such people is only a mouthing of cliches. What they mistake for thought is simply a repetition of what they have heard. My guess is that well over 80 percent of the human race goes through life without having a single original thought. - Author: H.L. Mencken
Thinking quotes by H.L. Mencken
#181. I wouldn't be a part of anything that had acts of violence toward children. I don't think I would do a horror film, either. That just doesn't sit well on my soul. - Author: Kate Winslet

#185. I don't think I came to music. I think music came to me - or was already embedded when I came into this sphere, this realm, this Earth. - Author: June Millington
Thinking quotes by June Millington
#186. To spend time observing, without drawing, thinking, without drawing, or feeling, without drawing, is the misfortune of nonartists. - Author: Nick Meglin
Thinking quotes by Nick Meglin

Thinking quotes by Donald Trump
#188. I care. I care a lot. I think of Cosmopolitan all day, and I run scared. So it's a combination of fright, caring and anxiety. - Author: Helen Gurley Brown
Thinking quotes by Helen Gurley Brown
#189. I went over to the bed and knelt down beside it. I saw that she was still breathing, not in the hoarse, distressing way she had been breathing over the last few days, but almost serenely, as if the sacrament really had brought her relief. Then I took her pulse and felt it beating, rather irregularly, but beating nonetheless, and that was enough to assure me that she was still there. Finally, I carefully tried to prize open her eyelids, so that she could, if possible, see me, or so that I could at least see her, even if she could not see me. If my image could no longer penetrate the place where she now found herself, and I was, for her, merely a dull, meaningless thing, I wanted at least to be able to see my own image in those opaque pupils and feel myself floating on the surface of that world that had once been mine and which, now that it was lost, would bear me up as indifferently as a wave washing over a dead body. And I was thinking this even as I was trying to open her eyelids, which insisted on closing, while, meanwhile, everything inside me rebelled against being made an outcast, an exile, and I wanted her to see me, for my presence once more to illumine her inner world, which was, at that moment, heading into endless night, the desert where she would know nothing about me. - Author: Lúcio Cardoso
Thinking quotes by Lúcio Cardoso
#190. I think I have broken into the mainstream, and I think that may happen in a broader way, but I want to do it on my own terms, not become a standard producer. - Author: Joe R. Lansdale
Thinking quotes by Joe R. Lansdale
#191. I don't think women outlive men, Doctor. It only seems longer. - Author: Erma Bombeck
Thinking quotes by Erma Bombeck
#192. My relationship to the desecration of the earth was very theoretical and intellectual until I got sick. I could never watch anything about polar bears dying or the death of bees. There were certain things I knew I couldn't go near because they were too devastating. But I don't think until I got cancer did I get it in my body, what was happening to the earth. I finally went: "Oh! Earth! Organism!" - Author: Eve Ensler
Thinking quotes by Eve Ensler
#193. I read, go for walks and I love to garden. My hands are such a mess. People think I should have movie star hands, but they're just gardening ones. Always slightly grubby and with a bit of dirt under the fingernails. - Author: Amanda Donohoe
Thinking quotes by Amanda Donohoe
#194. I think surprises are what's great about life: "WHOA! I didn't see that coming!" - Author: Jason Mraz
Thinking quotes by Jason Mraz

"No, that other place I'm going to go to for thinking what I'm thinking. - Author: Richelle Mead
Thinking quotes by Richelle Mead
#196. I think one artist to another artist, the best compliment you can pay one another, because the part of you that is inspired or creates something, to write a joke or a song, that's like the God-like part of a person. - Author: Dave Chappelle
Thinking quotes by Dave Chappelle
#197. We have quite the same ideas. No; I think our ideas are quite different. But he has been most pleasant. - Author: Oscar Wilde

Thinking quotes by Dennis Miller
#199. Who says you failed?" Dad stroked her hair back from her face. His expression was tender. "I'm just thinking of what I know about Will Traynor, what I know about men like him. And I'll say one thing to you. I'm not sure anyone in the world was ever going to persuade that man once he'd set his mind to something. He's who he is. You can't make people change who they are. - Author: Jojo Moyes
Thinking quotes by Jojo Moyes
#200. You're looking for a book that reminds you why you read in the first place. One written well and that will feel like it was written just for you - one that will make you think about things in a new way, or feel things you didn't expect a book to make you feel, or see things in a new light. A book you won't want to put down, whose characters you don't want to tell good-bye. A book you will close feeling satisfied and grateful, thinking, Now, that was a good one. - Author: Anne Bogel
Thinking quotes by Anne Bogel
