Wells quotes by Elizabeth Loftus
#8. 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
Wells quotes by H.G. Wells

#13. Do you think any of us know how to love?! Do you think anybody would ever do anything if they waited until they knew how to love?! Do you think that babies would ever get made or meals cooked or crops planed or books written or what God-damn-have-you? Do you think people would even get out of bed in the morning if they waited until they knew how to love? You have had too much therapy. Or not enough. God knows how to love, kiddo. The rest of us are only good actors.
Forget love. Try good manners. - Author: Rebecca Wells
Wells quotes by Rebecca Wells

#21. 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
Wells quotes by Kenneth Clark
#22. 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
Wells quotes by Cynthia Voigt
#23. I think that is the fight that we have to wage if we're to save the middle class.

Wells quotes by Lindsey Graham
#24. Well, all I can say is, it's a day-by-day program, and so I'm very worried about relapsing, but I don't know. I don't want to use. I don't want to go back to that place because nothing good came of it. It was super dark; it's not nice. - Author: Jack Osbourne
Wells quotes by Jack Osbourne
#25. By the end, you should be inside your character, actually operating from within somebody else, and knowing him pretty well, as that person knows himself or herself. You're sort of a predator, an invader of people. - Author: William Trevor
Wells quotes by William Trevor

Wells quotes by G. M. Trevelyan
#29. 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
Wells quotes by H.L. Mencken

Wells quotes by Oscar Wilde
#35. 'Cabin Fever' was very much inspired by 'The Thing.' It's really a perfect guy's horror movie: There's no love story, it's just straight-up horror. And it's so well-done. It moves at a slow pace, but it's really terrific. - Author: Eli Roth
Wells quotes by Eli Roth
#36. There's some homophobia within black community, but there's some strong homophobia throughout the whole of American society as well, particularly throughout the South to a degree, whether white or black.

Wells quotes by John Greenleaf Whittier

A person's masterpiece is something that you nurture along. - Author: Brian Wilson
Wells quotes by Brian Wilson

Wells quotes by Stella Benson

#46. Thus, experience has ever shown, that education, as well as religion, aristocracy, as well as democracy and monarchy, are, singly, totally inadequate to the business of restraining the passions of men, of preserving a steady government, and protecting the lives, liberties, and properties of the people ... Religion, superstition, oaths, education, laws, all give way before passions, interest, and power, which can be resisted only by passions, interest, and power. - Author: John Adams
Wells quotes by John Adams

Wells quotes by Dan Wells

You need to respect them as well. - Author: Buck Brannaman
Wells quotes by Buck Brannaman
#57. Money has, as we know, no value in itself. It is a convenient yardstick for a large number of material values.

If we, entrusted with protecting and defending the health of the population, give in to a salesman's scale of values we are lost. - Author: Karl Evang
Wells quotes by Karl Evang

Wells quotes by Sophocles
#69. What is it that wells up so suddenly and menacingly under my heart, swallowing the soft air of melancholy? Are you pleased with us, dark night? What is it you conceal under your mantle, that grabs invisibly and powerfully at my soul? A rich balm drips off your fingers from a bundle of poppies. You raise up the heavy wings of the soul – darkly and inexpressibly we are moved. I see an earnest face startled with joy – softly and reverently it inclines toward me, and under endlessly entangled locks
appears the cherished face of our Mother. How poor and childish the light seems to me now − how welcome and
blessed is the day's departure. - Author: Novalis
Wells quotes by Novalis

blamed. - Author: Keith Richards

I live in an ocean of smell, and the ocean is my mother. - Author: Rebecca Wells
Wells quotes by Rebecca Wells

Wells quotes by Patton Oswalt

Wells quotes by Vinny Guadagnino

#123. We won't make the weak stronger by making the strong weaker, as a very wise man once said. That applies to the economy as well. If Germany were less competitive, the euro area as a whole would lose, because less could be produced then. - Author: Mario Draghi

Wells quotes by Jack Gantos
#128. I've come to the conclusion that military style weapons really don't have any place in our society. We ought to reinstate the assault weapons ban that served us well for 10 years from 1994 to 2004. - Author: Mark Udall
Wells quotes by Mark Udall
#129. My dad was in the army. World War II. He got his college education from the army. After World War II he became an insurance salesman. Really, I didn't know my dad very well.

Wells quotes by Lao-Tzu
#131. I can think of few more worthy achievements than keeping a library alive and well for a century. As far as I am concerned, one of the absolute backbones of a free society and a democracy is the library offering access to a treasure house of information to all. - Author: Gillian Roberts
Wells quotes by Gillian Roberts
#132. I think the most common meme is that it's too difficult to change. It's too risky to change. My nature doesn't allow me to change. When you're thinking that, you're not understanding what your nature is. All of us come from this place of well-being, love, and kindness. But we've taken on these other things, and we think that they're our nature. Our nature really is to be like God. - Author: Wayne Dyer
Wells quotes by Wayne Dyer

Wells quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#134. Society at present suffers far more from waste of money than from want of it. There is dignity in every attempt to economise. It indicates self-denial and imparts strength of character. It produces a well-regulated mind. - Author: Morarji Desai
Wells quotes by Morarji Desai
#135. It was all very well being told that she could do nothing to make things better. Neverfell did not have the kind of mind that could take that quietly. She did not have the kind of mind that could be quiet at all. - Author: Frances Hardinge
Wells quotes by Frances Hardinge
#136. Lichtenberg ... held something of the following kind: one should neither affirm the existence of God nor deny it ... It is not that he wished to leave certain perspectives open, nor to please everyone. It is rather that he was identifying himself, for his part, with a consciousness of self, of the world, and of others that was "strange" (the word is his) in a sense which is equally well destroyed by the rival explanations. - Author: Maurice Merleau Ponty
Wells quotes by Maurice Merleau Ponty
#137. A profit is not without honor save in Boston. - Author: Carolyn Wells
Wells quotes by Carolyn Wells
#138. I always feel that if you're gonna be uncomfortable and unhappy in something, just because you think it's in or it's chic, I would advise you to be happy rather than well-dressed. It's better to be happy. - Author: Iris Apfel
Wells quotes by Iris Apfel
#139. That's all very well as an abstract moral principle, Avril, a coffee-table theoretical construct, but there's no denying the sheer gratuitous pleasure to be derived from seeing members of the ruling class in pain and torment. - Author: Irvine Welsh

Wells quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#141.

Wells quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#142. Well, I don't know that I'm OK any more than anybody else is OK but I've led at least a happy life and a very full one. - Author: L. Ron Hubbard
Wells quotes by L. Ron Hubbard
#143. All the books were beginning to turn against me. Indeed, I must have been blind as a bat not to have seen it long before, the ludicrous contradiction between my theory of life and my actual experiences as a reader. George MacDonald had done more to me than any other writer; of course it was a pity that he had that bee in his bonnet about Christianity. He was good in spite of it. Chesterton has more sense than all the other moderns put together; bating, of course, his Christianity. Johnson was one of the few authors whom I felt I could trust utterly; curiously enough, he had the same kink. Spenser and Milton by a strange coincidence had it too. Even among ancient authors the same paradox was to be found. The most religious (Plato, Aeschylus, Virgil) were clearly those on whom I could really feed. On the other hand, those writers who did not suffer from religion and with whom in theory my sympathy ought to have been complete -- Shaw and Wells and Mill and Gibbon and Voltaire -- all seemed a little thin; what as boys we called "tinny". It wasn't that I didn't like them. They were all (especially Gibbon) entertaining; but hardly more. There seemed to be no depth in them. They were too simple. The roughness and density of life did not appear in their books. - Author: C.S. Lewis
Wells quotes by C.S. Lewis

Wells quotes by John Mellencamp
#148. I've always thought vampires were interesting because they live forever, they're always well-financed, they dress well, you know what I mean? And they're, like, cool. Usually vampire - you've never seen a broke vampire. Have you? - Author: Michael Ealy

Free of these obstructions, an individual's innate intelligence and self-regulating capabilties will guide him toward a state of well being. - Author: Richard Carlson
Wells quotes by Richard Carlson
#156. If I heard it once, I've heard it a thousand times from Ray Hunt. He said 'make the wrong thing difficult and the right thing easy'. Then he said 'but don't make the wrong thing impossible'. Well ... you learn from making mistakes. It's that simple. - Author: Buck Brannaman
Wells quotes by Buck Brannaman

Wells quotes by Napoleon Hill
#163. Second, the Church itself is going to have to become more authentic morally, for the greatness of the Gospel is now seen to have become quite trivial and inconsequential in its life. If the Gospel means so little to the Church, if it changes so little, why then should unbelievers believe it? - Author: David F. Wells
Wells quotes by David F. Wells

Wells quotes by Eudora Welty
#166. Walking is a skill that took millions of years for us to develop. If you wanted to design a robot that could walk as well as a person, this would be fantastically complicated software. It would have to be doing billions of calculations with every step. - Author: David Pogue
Wells quotes by David Pogue
#167. So many of the great detectives that we see on television now owe their origins to Sherlock Holmes. What was very exciting about Rob's pitch and script was that he is a real Holmes-ian expert. He knew all of the mythology. He was very well-versed in the genesis of Holmes and the stories. And the twist with Watson is something we jumped at immediately. It's a very forward-thinking way of doing the show. - Author: Nina Tassler
Wells quotes by Nina Tassler

Wells quotes by Hugh Jackman
#175. Don't cry."
"How can I not?" I asked him. "You just said you loved me."
"Well, why else did you think all of this was happening?" He set the book aside to wrap his arms around me. "The Furies wouldn't be trying to kill you if I didn't love you."
"I didn't know," I said. Tears were trickling down my cheeks, but I did nothing to try to stop them. His shirt was absorving most of them. "You never said anything about it. Every time I saw you, you just acted so ... wild."
"How was I supposed to act?" he asked. "You kept doing things like throwing tea in my face. - Author: Meg Cabot

So it is definitely hard work. - Author: John Leguizamo
Wells quotes by John Leguizamo
#179. Another school of opinion followed Mr. Fearenside, and either accepted the piebald view or some modification of it; as, for instance, Silas Durgan, who was heard to assert that "if he chooses to show enself at fairs he'd make his fortune in no time," and being a bit of a theologian, compared the stranger to the man with the one talent. Yet another view explained the entire matter by regarding the stranger as a harmless lunatic. That had the advantage of accounting for everything straight away. Between - Author: H.G.Wells

Wells quotes by Chilon Of Sparta
#191. The important consideration is not your opponents, but yourself. It is bad to scream at them, not because it hurts them, they ought to be hurt, but because it hurts you.

#195. I was okay with singing. I always sneak a song into everything I do. Dancing, a little awkward. Little embarrassed about that. I don't move well. But I was with a frog, so it doesn't matter. I'll do anything with a frog, that's my motto. He's great with tap-dancing or flap-dancing on my head. So no one's going to be looking at me when we're doing that dance. They're going to be saying, 'There's a frog dancing'. - Author: Ricky Gervais
Wells quotes by Ricky Gervais
#196. I always tend to assume there's an infinite amount of money out there."

Wells quotes by Neal Stephenson

Wells quotes by Spencer Wells
#200. This isn't about you ... "
"Well, it should be!" he shouted, and I flinched. "Everything I do is about you, and I want the reverse to be true, too." I wiped more tears, my throat aching with words that would only make this worse.
"What, you need a reminder? That's what he was doing, right? And now you smell like him. You probably taste like him. You should taste like me ... "
He was on me before I could even catch my breath ... - Author: Rachel Vincent
