Why are young adults so self-centered and always seeking instant gratification? Because older adults, often in positions of power, paint them that way.
He who must expend his life to prolong life cannot enjoy it, and he who is still seeking for his life does not have it and can as little enjoy it.
A man is not old as long as he is seeking something.
The atoms become like a moth, seeking out the region of higher laser intensity.
A film seeking to create change on a difficult issue should not try to provide a definitive historical overview, nor present an op-ed style argument.
America is a living idea. It isn't only the tenets of its founding, but also the terms of its future. Every day, we make America. Seeking to preserve and enshrine one vision of this country from one period of its past robs it of what makes it magical: its infinite possibility for adjustment.
Charles M. Blow

I am very unhappy about reports that I was seeking asylum in Manila.
Life is very short... but I would like to live four times and if I could, I would set out to do no other things than I am seeking now to do.
William Merritt Chase

Our understanding of the world around us is constantly being redefined and expanded, and so therefore, it is wiser to be passionate about seeking for truth than knowing it.
Bryant H. McGill

In seeking a lawyer, you are looking for an advocate, an expert advisor on the law and on your rights and responsibilities, a strategist, a negotiator, and a litigator.
Abstinence from sins is better than seeking help afterwards.
Ali ibn Abi Talib
There are joys which long to be ours. God sends ten thousands truths, which come about us like birds seeking inlet; but we are shut up to them, and so they bring us nothing, but sit and sing awhile upon the roof, and then fly away.
Henry Ward Beecher
If my revelation of having bipolar II has encouraged one person to seek help, then it is worth it. There is no need to suffer silently and there is no shame in seeking help.
It's bad timing, but a lot of kids become teenagers just as their parents are hitting their mid-life crisis. So everybody's miserable and confused and seeking that new sense of identity.
Laurie Halse Anderson
Seeking can become stressful when you apply the same laws that you apply in the material world - hard work, exacting plans, driving ambition, and attachment to outcome.
I don't live my life seeking validation from people on social media.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
