I See Quotes
- Page 3
It's like climbing a staircase. I'm on the top of the staircase, I look behind me and I see the steps. That's where I was.
I see my upbringing as a great success story. By disciplining me, my parents inculcated self-discipline. And by restricting my choices as a child, they gave me so many choices in my life as an adult. Because of what they did then, I get to do the work I love now.
I enjoy going out by myself... always have, always will. I don't have security guards, and, for the most part, I enjoy meeting new people. I see myself as a regular guy who likes playing video games with his nieces and nephews and poker with his family. I don't have an art collection or take exotic vacations. I enjoy being at home.
If other people think I'm okay looking, that's great, but I don't see it myself. When I look in the mirror, all I see is a bunch of fake teeth and football scars.
I have often thought with wonder of the great goodness of God; and my soul has rejoiced in the contemplation of His great magnificence and mercy. May He be blessed for ever! For I see clearly that He has not omitted to reward me, even in this life, for every one of my good desires.
Saint Teresa of Avila
There ought to be more grants that go to people in their late twenties and early thirties. That's a crucial age, although it's very hard to judge who is worth supporting and who is not. Looking back on my own life, I see that was the period when I was closest to giving up as a novelist and when I most needed some encouragement.
When I see old friends, I'm very excited.
Your denial is beneath you, and thanks to the use of hallucinogenic drugs, I see through you.
It's not so much religion per se, it's false certainty that worries me, and religion just has more than its fair share of false certainty or dogmatism. I'm really concerned when I see people pretending to know things they clearly cannot know.
It is mind-boggling to me that the Almighty power created everything I see; the Bible says that God created the entire universe just so he could create this galaxy just so he could create Earth so he could create human beings so he could create a family.
I see martial arts as moving forms of meditation. When you're sparring or drilling techniques, you can't think of anything else.
Wherever there is a human being, I see God-given rights inherent in that being, whatever may be the sex or complexion.
William Lloyd Garrison
If only someone else could paint what I see, it would be marvellous, because then I wouldn't have to paint at all.
Growth is the great separator between those who succeed and those who do not. When I see a person beginning to separate themselves from the pack, it's almost always due to personal growth.
John C. Maxwell
I see myself at 7:30 in the morning and it's not too pretty.
I see Canada as a country torn between a very northern, rather extraordinary, mystical spirit which it fears and its desire to present itself to the world as a Scotch banker.
Now I see the secret of making the best person: it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth.
I never kill insects. If I see ants or spiders in the room, I pick them up and take them outside. Karma is everything.
Can I see another's woe, and not be in sorrow too? Can I see another's grief, and not seek for kind relief?
Talking, talking. Spinning a web of words, pale walls of dreams, between myself and all I see.
When I see something unjust, I have to intervene - it's hard for me to watch the underdog suffer.
Mozart's music is so pure and beautiful that I see it as a reflection of the inner beauty of the universe.
Parenting is the hardest thing I have ever done. I tried to find the balance between the strict, traditional Chinese way I was raised, which I think can be too harsh, and what I see as a tendency in the West to be too permissive and indulgent. If I could do it all again, I would, with some adjustments.
Are there moments when I see unrequited crushes or ex-boyfriends slow dancing with their dates and kind of want to stab myself in the spleen with a salad fork? Yeah, sure.
I like to keep a bottle of stimulant handy in case I see a snake, which I also keep handy.
W. C. Fields
Titles are important; I have them before I have books that belong to them. I have last chapters in my mind before I see first chapters, too. I usually begin with endings, with a sense of aftermath, of dust settling, of epilogue.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
Image of the Moment
We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.
