Quote of the Day
The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.
A sister is both your mirror - and your opposite.
The romantic love we feel toward the opposite sex is probably one extra help from God to bring you together, but that's it. All the rest of it, the true love, is the test.
Under capitalism, man exploits man. Under communism, it's just the opposite.
John Kenneth Galbraith
The opposite of anger is not calmness, its empathy.
One does a whole painting for one peach and people think just the opposite - that particular peach is but a detail.
And the attitude of faith is the very opposite of clinging to belief, of holding on.
When I got sober, I thought giving up was saying goodbye to all the fun and all the sparkle, and it turned out to be just the opposite. That's when the sparkle started for me.
Diplomacy in a sense is the opposite of writing. You have to disperse yourself so much: the lady who comes in crying because she's had a fight with the secretary; exports and imports; students in trouble; thumbtacks for the embassy.
I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice, and then going away and doing the exact opposite.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
If 'pro' is the opposite of 'con' what is the opposite of 'progress'?
One of the things psychologists used to say was that if you are depressed, anxious or angry, you couldn't be happy. Those were at opposite ends of a continuum. I believe that you can be suffering or have a mental illness and be happy - just not in the same moment that you're sad.
If I just do everything the opposite of what my dad did, I think that will make things pretty easy. I can joke about it now because I'm past that stage where it used to hurt. By having a kid, it's gone. I could take all that negative energy that I had and put it in a positive way.
What is the opposite of two? A lonely me, a lonely you.

I have this old '57 Porsche Speedster, and the way the door closes, I'll just sit there and listen to the sound of the latch going, 'cluh-CLICK-click.' That door! I live for that door. Whatever the opposite of planned obsolescence is, that's what I'm into.

The opposite of talking isn't listening. The opposite of talking is waiting.
Anger is energising. The opposite of anger is depression, which is anger turned inward.
