Tendency Quotations

I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I'm awake, you know?
Ernest Hemingway

Pope Francis

Matisyahu

The tendency to aggression is an innate, independent, instinctual disposition in man... it constitutes the powerful obstacle to culture.
Sigmund Freud

I turned down a scholarship to Yale. The problem with college is that there's a tendency to mistake preparation for productivity. You can prepare all you want, but if you never roll the dice you'll never be successful.
Shia LaBeouf
