Lack Of Trust Quotes Quotes

Humanity will one day be defined, not by the gifts we possess but the virtues we lack.

Unknown

Foolishness is rarely a matter of lack of intelligence or even lack of information.

John McCarthy

Our intellect is not the most subtle, the most powerful, the most appropriate, instrument for revealing the truth. It is life that, little by little, example by example, permits us to see that what is most important to our heart, or to our mind, is learned not by reasoning but through other agencies. Then it is that the intellect, observing their superiority, abdicates its control to them upon reasoned grounds and agrees to become their collaborator and lackey.

Marcel Proust

The historical experience of socialist countries has sadly demonstrated that collectivism does not do away with alienation but rather increases it, adding to it a lack of basic necessities and economic inefficiency.

Pope John Paul II

Alcohol doesn't console, it doesn't fill up anyone's psychological gaps, all it replaces is the lack of God.

Marguerite Duras

Confidence is contagious. So is lack of confidence.

Michael O'Brien

Envy, like flame, blackens that which is above it, and which it cannot reach.

Jean-Antoine Petit-Senn

Is there equality before the law? At every stage of the judicial process--facing the policeman, appearing in court, being freed on bond, being sentenced by the judge--the poor person is treated worse than the rich, the black treated worse than the white, the politically or personally odd character is treated worse than the orthodox.

Howard Zinn

A warriorÖfeeds his body well; he trains it; works on it. Where he lacks knowledge, he studies. But above all he must believe. He must believe in his strength of will, of purpose, of heart and soul.

David Gemmell

Steve Pavlina

For the cause that lacks assistance, The wrong that needs resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that I can do.

George Linnaeus Banks

That "ol' black magic" is a fickle force. The chemistry of romantic love can trigger the chemistry of sexual desire and the fuel of sexual desire can trigger the fuel of romance. This is why it is dangerous to copulate with someone with whom you don't wish to become involved. Although you intend to have casual sex, you might just fall in love.

Helen Fisher

Still falls the rain -- dark as the world of man, black as our loss -- blind as the nineteen hundred and forty nails upon the Cross.

Dame Edith Sitwell

Moderation has been called a virtue to limit the ambition of great men, and to console undistinguished people for their want of fortune and their lack of merit.

Benjamin Disraeli

As a culture I see us as presently deprived of subtleties. The music is loud, the anger is elevated, sex seems lacking in sweetness and privacy.

Shelley Berman

Simplicity is a pleasant thing in children, or at any age, but it is not necessarily admirable, nor is affectation altogether a thing of evil. To be normal, to be at home in the world, with a prospect of power, usefulness, or success, the person must have that imaginative insight into other minds that underlies tact and savoir-faire, morality and beneficence. This insight involves sophistication, some understanding and sharing of the clandestine impulses of human nature. A simplicity that is merely the lack of this insight indicates a sort of defect.

Charles Horton Cooley

Lord Buddha

Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom

Buddha

John Webster

Things in law tend to be black and white. But we all know that some people are a little bit guilty, while other people are guilty as hell

Unknown

Regret is an odd emotion because it comes only upon reflection. Regret lacks immediacy, and so its power seldom influences events when it could do some good.

William O'Rourke

The white, the Hispanic, the black, the Arab, the Jew, the woman, the Native American, the small farmer, the businessperson, the environmentalist, the peace activist, the young, the old, the lesbian, the gay and the disabled make up the American quilt.

Jesse Jackson
