High achievers, we imagine, were wired for greatness from birth. But then you have to wonder why, over time, natural talent seems to ignite in some people and dim in others.
Let me tell you that the children from their very birth are born to evil. Satan seems to have control of them. He seems to take possession of their young minds, and they are corrupted. Why do fathers and mothers act as though a lethargy was upon them? They do not mistrust that Satan is sowing evil seed in their families.
Ellen G. White
Drink and be thankful to the host! What seems insignificant when you have it, is important when you need it.
It seems like the chaos of this world is accelerating, but so is the beauty in the consciousness of more and more people.
Our whole social environment seems to us to be filled with forces which really exist only in our own minds.
Life seems but a quick succession of busy nothings.
When a man and a woman have an overwhelming passion for each other, it seems to me, in spite of such obstacles dividing them as parents or husband, that they belong to each other in the name of Nature, and are lovers by Divine right, in spite of human convention or the laws.
A British porch is a musty, forbidding non-room in which to fling a sodden umbrella or a muddy pair of boots; a guard against the elements and strangers. By contrast the good ol' American front porch seems to stand for positivity and openness; a platform from which to welcome or wave farewell; a place where things of significance could happen.
Great ambition, the desire of real superiority, of leading and directing, seems to be altogether peculiar to man, and speech is the great instrument of ambition.
Once we're willing to confront our emotional suffering, we begin making choices based on attraction instead of aversion, love instead of fear. Where we used to think about what was 'safe,' we now become interested in doing what seems right or fun or meaningful or ripe with possibilities.
Touch seems to be as essential as sunlight.
As long as a man stands in his own way, everything seems to be in his way.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It seems to me that trying to live without friends is like milking a bear to get cream for your morning coffee. It is a whole lot of trouble, and then not worth much after you get it.
Zora Neale Hurston
Just as a flower which seems beautiful and has color but no perfume, so are the fruitless words of the man who speaks them but does them not.
It seems that if one is working from the point of view of getting beauty in one's equations, and if one has really a sound insight, one is on a sure line of progress.
It seems, in fact, as though the second half of a man's life is made up of nothing, but the habits he has accumulated during the first half.
You come into the world alone and you go out of the world alone yet it seems to me you are more alone while living than even going and coming.
If it seems a childish thing to do, do it in remembrance that you are a child.
When I was making 'Star Wars,' I wasn't restrained by any kind of science. I simply said, 'I'm going to create a world that's fun and interesting, makes sense, and seems to have a reality to it.'
It just seems to be a human trait to want to protect the speech of people with whom we agree. For the First Amendment, that is not good enough. So it is really important that we protect First Amendment rights of people no matter what side of the line they are on.
I have a deep love for life and my fellow human beings. I try to understand everything that everybody does, even if it seems wrong to me.
Grief seems at first to destroy not just all patterns, but also to destroy a belief that a pattern exists.
There seems to be some perverse human characteristic that likes to make easy things difficult.
It seems that it had been destined before that I should occupy myself so thoroughly with the vulture, for it comes to my mind as a very early memory, when I was still in the cradle, a vulture came down to me, he opened my mouth with his tail and struck me a few times with his tail against my lips.
Leonardo da Vinci
It is not enough for me to ask question; I want to know how to answer the one question that seems to encompass everything I face: What am I here for?
Abraham Joshua Heschel
Martin Luther King, Jr.

The farther reason looks the greater is the haze in which it loses itself.
Johann Georg Hamann
