#1. Government should never be able to do anything you can't do. If you can't steal from your neighbor, you can't send the government to steal for you. - Author: Ron Paul
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Ron Paul
#2. Among all the accomplishments of youth there is none preferable to a decent and agreeable behavior among men, a modest freedom of speech, a soft and elegant manner of address, a graceful and lovely deportment, a cheerful gravity and good-humor, with a mind appearing ever serene under the ruffling accidents of human life. - Author: Isaac Watts
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Isaac Watts
#3. He remembered the old-timers from his navy days. Grizzled lifers who could soundly sleep while two meters away their shipmates played a raucous game of poker or watched the vids with the volume all the way up. Back then he'd assumed it was just learned behavior, the body adapting so it could get enough rest in an environment that never really had downtime. Now he wondered if those vets found the constant noise preferable. A way to keep their lost shipmates away. They probably went home after their twenty and never slept again. - Author: James S.A. Corey
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by James S.A. Corey

Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Stefan Molyneux
#5. I don't dwell on the fact that I may have ridden on planes. That which I can't remember having needed, I simply accept. It is the most preferable kind of self-insight: one that does not require any accompanying change in behavior. - Author: Benson Bruno
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Benson Bruno
#6. A neurosis defends itself by coming up with rationalizations to explain away bizarre behavior. - Author: David Brin
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by David Brin
#7. The myth of altruism as a motivating factor in our behavior could arise and survive only in a society bundled in the sterile gauze of New England puritanism and Protestant morality and tied together with the ribbons of Madison Avenue public relations. It is one of the classic American fairy tales. From - Author: Saul D. Alinsky
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Saul D. Alinsky
#8. PTSD seems to have an even higher prevalence and greater severity following violence or disaster that is man-made; natural disasters, "acts of God," seem somehow easier to accept. (...). This is the case with acute stress reactions, too: I see it often with my patients in hospital, who can show extraordinary courage and calmness in facing the most dreadful diseases but fly into a rage if a nurse is late with a bedpan or a medication. The amorality of nature is accepted, whether it takes the form of a monsoon, an elephant in musth, or a disease; but being subjected helplessly to the will of others is not, for human behavior always carries (or is felt to carry) a moral charge. - Author: Oliver Sacks
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Oliver Sacks
#9. When we come to worship the God and Father of us all and to partake of the sacrament symbolizing the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we should be as comely and respectful, as dignified and appropriate as we can be. We should be recognizable in appearance as well as in behavior that we truly are disciples of Christ. - Author: Jeffrey R. Holland
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Jeffrey R. Holland

Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Foster Friess

#12. An elegant behavior, an elegant look, an elegant word, an elegant posture, an elegant idea, they are all moonlight, mysterious and magical, calming and peaceful! - Author: Mehmet Murat Ildan
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#13. In Western society, and particularly in American society, imagination is stulified from infancy. The imaginative child is discouraged and upbraided. He is told that the process is mere dreaming, that it wastes time and leads nowhere. It is said to be "impractical." As the child grows and its imagination inevitably leads it to express unconventional ideas and to try new behavior, it is chided and even viciously punished for such signs of unorthodoxy. - Author: Philip Wylie
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Philip Wylie
#14. Because lower-back pain afflicts more than three-quarters of all Americans at some point, the sit-up is fairly universally contraindicated. - Author: Arnold Schwarzenegger
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Arnold Schwarzenegger
#15. The percent likelihood of a society becoming physically violent if it is physically affectionate towards its infants and tolerant of premarital sexual behavior is 2 percent. The probability of this relationship occurring by chance is 125,000 to one. I am not aware of any other developmental variable that has such a high degree of predictive validity. - Author: James W. Prescott
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by James W. Prescott
#16. When's the party?' Cam asked toying with her.
'Nope, sorry. I have an appointment tonight with Katie Holmes and her Disturbing Behavior. - Author: Wendy Wunder
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Wendy Wunder
#17. There is nothing in us or done by us, at any stage of our earthly development, because of which we are acceptable to God. We must always be accepted for Christ's sake, or we cannot ever be accepted at all. This is not true of us only when we believe. It is just as true after we have believed. It will continue to be trust as long as we live. Our need of Christ does not cease with our believing; nor does the nature of our relation to Him or to God through Him ever alter, no matter what our attainments in Christian graces or our achievements in behavior may be. It is always on His "blood and righteousness" alone that we can rest. - Author: Benjamin Breckinridge Warfield
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Benjamin Breckinridge Warfield
#18. Isn't it interesting that emotionally abusive personalities always expect their victim to feel guilt for them so that they can feel sorry for themselves? They live in a constant torture by the demons of fear and regret, and the less they assume responsibility for their own behavior and words, the greater the legion that eventually possesses their soul and leads them to hell before they reach it. A normal communication is a luxury for such individuals, for their spirit is now a hostage to the torture of ignorance, the separation between their brain and their soul. The only thing they can do is manipulate and provoke, because they're being distracted by their new hosts towards pushing away the ones that could take them out of the water where they have chosen to drown themselves when giving up on trust, empathy, compassion and love. No one can save them because they have not clearly stated that they want to be saved. And each human is responsible for his own fate. - Author: Robin Sacredfire
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Robin Sacredfire
#19. I do agree with Ms. Post about one thing, though; the legal status of prostitution is indeed a measure of a society, and it does indeed set a tone. When government is allowed to criminalize the consensual behavior of rational adults, it makes a statement. When women's work is devalued as being "receptacles for men," and when sex is defined as the totality of our being (so that sale of sex is defined as sale of our whole persons), it makes a statement. When individual choices are dismissed by powerful authorities whose decisions are inflicted on those individuals by organized violence, it makes a statement. And when the sending of such "messages" takes precedence over the health and well-being of real humans, it makes a very real and truly horrifying statement. - Author: Maggie McNeill
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Maggie McNeill
#20. The ancient dream of man to fly among the stars and go through the could and look down on the lands and seas has degenerated in its realization to the socialized and apathetic behavior of passengers who hardly look out the windows. - Author: Paul Goodman
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Paul Goodman
#21. If the world and man do not come from a creative intelligence, which stores within itself their measures and plots the path of human existence, then all that is left are traffic rules for human behavior, which can be discarded or maintained according to their usefulness. - Author: Pope Benedict XVI
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#22. It is literally true, Burke's groundbreaking arguments suggests, that if people change their words (or, more accurately, their words and their words' relationships to one another), they change their perception of reality. As they change their reality their behavior changes automatically. Instead of people using their words, they are used by their words, and this fact is unrecognized. - Author: Dave Logan
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Dave Logan
#23. There is no bravery in evil, no true courage in behavior that can only result in deep disappointment. - Author: Marion D. Hanks
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Marion D. Hanks
#24. We're a society of brats, fighting over the same toys. That, for me, is the closest we come to be inherently evil as a people. It leads to selfishness, inflexibility, and impatience -- among so many other traits that are ugly and harmful. We're combative, competitive, petty, and suffer from one fatal flaw that I can never get my head around. We recognize behavior in others that makes us insane, while turning right around and doing the exact thing to someone else. - Author: Trevor D. Richardson
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Trevor D. Richardson
#25. Education being a change of behavior as a result of experience brings about wisdom and knowledge. While knowledge comes from what we read or study, wisdom comes from what we observe and experience.

The purpose of education is not to affect negatively but to positively affect. When I see people using whatever wisdom or knowledge they have to cheat, I see an abuse of education all borne out of ignorance. - Author: OMOSOHWOFA CASEY
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by OMOSOHWOFA CASEY
#26. Well the open-outcry auction is just made to turn the brain into mush: you've got social proof, the other guy is bidding, you get reciprocation tendency, you get deprival super-reaction syndrome, the thing is going away ... I mean it just absolutely is designed to manipulate people into idiotic behavior. - Author: Charlie Munger
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Charlie Munger
#27. Media who pretend to write stories about groups whose voices are never heard but write almost universally through the lens of western men instead, are ensuring that all interpretations and solutions come from the same small segment of society. - Author: Heather Marsh
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Heather  Marsh
#28. Unhealthy behavior is actually common among doctors, who tend to know a lot about medicine but very little about health. - Author: Sol Luckman
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Sol Luckman
#29. The only answer that I can give to this problem is based on Darwin's principle of natural selection. The idea is that in any population of self-reproducing organisms, there will be variations in the genetic material and upbringing that different individuals have. These differences will mean that some individuals are better able than others to draw the right conclusions about the world around them and to act accordingly. These individuals will be more likely to survive and reproduce and so their pattern of behavior and thought will come to dominate. It - Author: Stephen Hawking
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Stephen Hawking
#30. Knowledge is power; power corrupts. Corruption brings shame and ruin. Ignorance may not be bliss, but it is perhaps preferable to a life lived in shame. - Author: Lauren Kate
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Lauren Kate
#31. Behavior is ultimately the product of the brain, the most mysterious organ of them all. - Author: Ian Tattersall
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Ian Tattersall
#32. Theater is completely different from film or television. It has a beginning and a middle and an end and it's different every night. And it's far preferable to any other except in the sense of not getting paid, people who want to eat should do film and television. - Author: Richard Dreyfuss
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Richard Dreyfuss
#33. I suspect that you cannot recall any truly significant action in your life that wasn't governed by two very simple rules: staying away from something that would feed bad, or trying to accomplish something that would feel good. This law of approach and avoidance dictates most of human and animal behavior from a very early age.
The forces that implement this law are positive and negative emotions. Emotions make us do things, as the name suggests (remove the first letter from the word). They motivate our remarkable achievements, incite us to try again when we fail, keep us safe from potential harm, urge us to accomplish rewarding and beneficial outcomes, and compel us to cultivate social and romantic relationships. In short, emotions in appropriate amounts make life worth living. They offer a healthy and vital existence, psychologically and biologically speaking. Take them away, and you face a sterile existence with no highs or lows to speak of. Emotionless, you will simply exist, rather than live. - Author: Matthew Walker
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Matthew Walker
#34. Why hadn't the Woman in Black called for Raphael? Mathilde's idea that she'd stopped looking for him seemed out of keeping with most ghost
stories; ghosts didn't change their behavior, did they?
Whatever the reason, Caitlyn was glad of it. Raphael was hers, and she didn't want to share him. She hated the idea of a long-lost lover roaming
the halls of the castle, looking for him. It meant there was someone else in his life.
She was, she realized, jealous.
That's stupid! How can I be jealous of a ghost, over a guy who might not even exist?
And yet, there was no other word for what she felt. Since the moment she'd seen Raphael riding in the valley, her heart had claimed him as her
Knight of Cups - Author: Lisa Cach
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Lisa Cach
#35. She had talked of this at length with Kadambari - Mrs. Dutt: Why should it not be possible for these freedoms to be universally available for women everywhere? And Mrs. Dutt had said that of course, this was one of the great benefits of British rule in India; that it had given women rights and protections that they'd never had before. At this, Uma had felt herself, for the first time, falling utterly out of sympathy with her new friend. She had known instinctively that this was a false argument, unfounded and illogical. How was it possible to imagine that one could grant freedom by imposing subjugation? that one could open a cage by pushing it inside a bigger cage? How could any section of a people hope to achieve freedom where the entirety of a populace was held in subjection? - Author: Amitav Ghosh
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Amitav Ghosh
#36. The Bible describes everything, including you! - Author: Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#37. Free spirits, the ambitious, ex-socialists, drug users, and sexual eccentrics often find an attractive political philosophy in libertarianism, the idea that individual freedom should be the sole rule of ethics and government. Libertarianism offers its believers a clear conscience to do things society presently restrains, like make more money, have more sex, or take more drugs. It promises a consistent formula for ethics, a rigorous framework for policy analysis, a foundation in American history, and the application of capitalist efficiencies to the whole of society. But while it contains substantial grains of truth, as a whole it is a seductive mistake. . . .

The most fundamental problem with libertarianism is very simple: freedom, though a good thing, is simply not the only good thing in life. . . .

Libertarians try to get around this fact that freedom is not the only good thing by trying to reduce all other goods to it through the concept of choice, claiming that everything that is good is so because we choose to partake of it. Therefore freedom, by giving us choice, supposedly embraces all other goods. But this violates common sense by denying that anything is good by nature, independently of whether we choose it. . . .

So even if the libertarian principle of "an it harm none, do as thou wilt," is true, it does not license the behavior libertarians claim. Consider pornography: libertarians say it should be permitted because if someone doesn - Author: Robert Locke
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Robert Locke
#38. Testifying has helped me understand that one individual's behavior and actions make a difference. That my actions are important to people other than myself. - Author: Anita Hill
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Anita Hill
#39. I am diagnosed with what's called 'REM behavior disorder.' As far as the disorder goes, there's no cure, but it's going pretty well as far as these things go. I see a sleep doctor, take medication, etc. - Author: Mike Birbiglia
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Mike Birbiglia
#40. I led her into the newsroom, removed the sheet, and pointed to the statue of the Bombinating Beast. She gestured to me that I should be the one to take it. I gestured back that she was the chaperone and the leader of this caper. She gestured to me that I shouldn't argue with her. I gestured to her that I was the one who had gotten us into the house in the first place. She gestured to me that my predecessor knew that the apprentice should never argue with the chaperone or complain and that I might model my own behavior after his. I gestured to her asking what the 'S' stood for in her name, and she replied with a very rude gesture, and I grabbed the statue and tucked it into my vest. - Author: Lemony Snicket

#41. We have the power to abstain from destructive behavior. - Author: Sylvia Earle
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Sylvia Earle

BEFORE the Reformation. - Author: John Waters
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by John Waters
#43. Very often in Chekhov, where he exhibits a little bit of human behavior that you recognize as true, you give a little laugh. It's like a reflex. - Author: Tom Stoppard
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Tom Stoppard
#44. The fear of rape puts many women in their place - indoors, intimidated, dependent yet again on material barriers and protectors... I was advised to stay indoors at night, to wear baggy clothes, to cover or cut my hair, to try to look like a man, to move someplace more expensive, to take taxis, to buy a car, to move in groups, to get a man to escort me - all modern versions of Greek walls and Assyrian veils, all asserting it was my responsibility to control my own and men's behavior rather than society's to ensure my freedom. I realized that many women had been so successfully socialized to know their place that they had chosen more conservative, gregarious lives without realizing why. The very desire to walk alone had been extinguished in them - but it had not in me. - Author: Rebecca Solnit
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#45. 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. - Author: Sarah Dessen
Universally Preferable Behavior quotes by Sarah Dessen
#46. In the course of an extended investigation into the nature of inflammation, and the healthy and morbid conditions of the blood in relation to it, I arrived several years ago at the conclusion that the essential cause of suppuration in wounds is decomposition brought about by the influence of the atmosphere upon blood or serum retained within them, and, in the case of contused wounds, upon portions of tissue destroyed by the violence of the injury.

To prevent the occurrence of suppuration with all its attendant risks was an object manifestly desirable, but till lately apparently unattainable, since it seemed hopeless to attempt to exclude the oxygen which was universally regarded as the agent by which putrefaction was effected. But when it had been shown by the researches of Pasteur that the septic properties of the atmosphere depended not on the oxygen, or any gaseous constituent, but on minute organisms suspended in it, which owed their energy to their vitality, it occurred to me that decomposition in the injured part might be avoided without excluding the air, by applying as a dressing some material capable of destroying the life of the floating particles. - Author: Joseph Lister
