Confine Quotations

Guilt is cancer. Guilt will confine you, torture you, destroy you as an artist. It's a black wall. It's a thief.
Dave Grohl

Confine yourself to the present. - Marcus Aurelius
Confine yourself to the present.
Marcus Aurelius

It was wrong to capture wild animals and confine them in captivity for people to go and gawk at them. And that's basically how zoos got started. But once you do that, and once you have animals that have been bred in captivity, you're really stuck with them in some sense. You can't return them to the wild.
Peter Singer

Software options proliferate extremely easily - too easily, in fact - because too many options create tools that can't ever be used intuitively. Intuitive actions confine the detail work to a dedicated part of the brain, leaving the rest of one's mind free to respond with attention and sensitivity to the changing texture of the moment.
Brian Eno

I am never going to have anything more to do with politics or politicians. When this war is over I shall confine myself entirely to writing and painting.
