My great religion is a belief in the blood, the flesh, as being wiser than the intellect. We can go wrong in our minds. But what our blood feels and believes and says, is always true. The intellect is only a bit and a bridle.
D. H. Lawrence
Plato found fault that the poets of his time filled the world with wrong opinions of the gods, making light tales of that unspotted essence, and therefore would not have the youth depraved with such opinions.
The reason the future feels odd is because of its unpredictability. If the future didn't feel weirdly unexpected, then something would be wrong.
Sometimes people's spiritual ideas become fixed and they use them against those who don't share their beliefs - in effect, becoming fundamentalist. It's very dangerous - the finger of righteous indignation pointing at someone who is identified as bad or wrong.
People know something has gone terribly wrong with our government and it has gotten so far off track. But people also know that there is nothing wrong in America that a good old-fashioned election can't fix.
I wonder if we are all wrong about each other, if we are just composing unwritten novels about the people we meet?
I was born in ancient times, at the end of the world, in a patriarchal Catholic and conservative family. No wonder that by age five I was a raging feminist - although the term had not reached Chile yet, so nobody knew what the heck was wrong with me.
Men's indignation, it seems, is more excited by legal wrong than by violent wrong; the first looks like being cheated by an equal, the second like being compelled by a superior.
You are just as capable of making a mistake as anyone else. By insisting too eagerly upon a small right, you may turn it into a wrong against yourself and also against your neighbor.
Lawrence G. Lovasik
As I said there is nothing wrong with failing. Pick yourself up and try it again. You never are going to know how good you really are until you go out and face failure.
The mind when it has an old experience will add that data into its current experience, and it keeps coming up with wrong answers.
L. Ron Hubbard
When great changes occur in history, when great principles are involved, as a rule the majority are wrong.
Eugene V. Debs
Whenever there are great virtues, it's a sure sign something's wrong.
We all have those days when you feel like you're against the world, every little thing goes wrong and your blood pressure is up. And you feel like punching somebody!
Every career thing I do can't be perfect and sometimes my decisions are wrong.
We approach people the same way we approach our cars. We take the poor kid to a doctor and ask, What's wrong with him, how much will it cost, and when can I pick him up?
There's nobody on this earth who can tell you that what you're feeling is wrong. They can tell you it's different to what they're feeling.
I personally think that if you deny something or if you hide something you're inadvertently admitting it's wrong.
The new spirituality will step away from dogma, will step away from 'We're right and you're wrong.'
Neale Donald Walsch
We all feel that if we have a crazy idea that might get laughed at, there's nothing wrong with seeing if there's a crazy writer out there who agrees with us and can take it to a crazy network and somehow bring something that's a little bit daft and edgy to life.
History is an endless repetition of the wrong way of living.
I could have easily gone down the wrong path and dropped out of school, but I was given a second chance.
I'm not skinny for the wrong reasons. It's not because I'm bulimic or anorexic or doing drugs. Compared to a lot of actresses my age, I'm actually overweight.
The beautiful seems right by force of beauty and the feeble wrong because of weakness.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
In religion, there's a certain type of fear that if somebody believes differently from me, that it's a threat. Because I'm right, and there cannot be two ways that are right, so if I'm right, anything different than this must be wrong; and we attack those things and it's really due to insecurity, ego and fear.
John F. Kennedy
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
