Seeing that a Pilot steers the ship in which we sail, who will never allow us to perish even in the midst of shipwrecks, there is no reason why our minds should be overwhelmed with fear and overcome with weariness.
I always felt really alone because no one wanted to talk about the things that I enjoyed, and that was really rap music and hip-hop as a culture. You know, having the shoes, using the words, buying the magazines, seeing the videos. And I had nobody to share it with, so I feel like I lived a lot online.
Courage consists not in blindly overlooking danger, but in seeing it, and conquering it.

Judgements prevent us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances.
I just get so fed up with seeing the same things written about me. If I see the words 'ice queen' attached to me, I feel like banging my head against the wall. There's this perception that I can only be in a film if I have a glass of champagne in my hand and a stately home in the background.
Kristin Scott Thomas
As much as I love to shop online, I also love walking the streets on a beautiful day and seeing what finds I can discover in a small shop or vintage store.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Seeing much, suffering much, and studying much, are the three pillars of learning.
In constructing the plot and working it out with the proper diction, the poet should place the scene, as far as possible, before his eyes.

Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen, and thinking what nobody has thought.
Traveling is the ruin of all happiness! There's no looking at a building after seeing Italy.
The value of experience is not in seeing much, but in seeing wisely.
We have a hunger of the mind which asks for knowledge of all around us, and the more we gain, the more is our desire; the more we see, the more we are capable of seeing.
The task of the educator lies in seeing that the child does not confound good with immobility and evil with activity.
Some indeed have tears naturally, when the higher motion of the soul makes itself felt in the lower, or because God our Lord, seeing that it would be good for them, allows them to melt into tears. But this does not mean that they have greater charity or that they are more effective than others who enjoy no tears.
Most single moms are very poor, uneducated, can't get a job, and if it weren't for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death and never have health care. And that's the story that we're not seeing, and it's unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of out of children wedlock.
Lots of people think the violence in the films I make is overwhelming, but they think they're seeing something that they aren't seeing.
Today, we are on a path of decay. We are seeing the book close on five decades of accomplishment as the leader in human space exploration.

I think one of my favorite things to do is just lock myself up in a small room and listen to music and watch films for a day. Also I just like seeing my friends. We have pizza parties which means I get four friends round, we eat a pizza and we're really lazy and we play PlayStation.
Leadership is a matter of having people look at you and gain confidence, seeing how you react. If you're in control, they're in control.
