Notice Quotes

Adolescents never understand that the best way to avoid notice is to behave normally.

Orson Scott Card

The mystics themselves do not seem to have believed their physical and mental sufferings to be a sign of grace, but it is unfortunate that it is precisely physical manifestations which appeal most to the religiosity of the mob. A woman might spend twenty years nursing lepers without having any notice taken of her, but let her once exhibit the stigmata or live for long periods on nothing but the Host and water, and in no time the crowd will be clamoring for her beatification.

Wystan Hugh Auden

Anthony Hecht

The Bible tells us that a sparrow does not fall without God's notice. I know he will help us meet our responsibilities through his guidance.

Michael Cardone

You ever notice the first thing someone says when they can't find something is that it was stolen? They say "who stole it?!". It's an ego defense. They can't stand the fact that they might have been stupid enough to have lost something.

George Denis Patrick Carlin

You ever notice that? Any time you see two groups of people who really hate each other, chances are good they're wearing different kind of hats. Keep an eye on that, it might be important.

George Denis Patrick Carlin

For long ages, too, no notice whatever was taken of the criminals sin; he was regarded as harmful, not guilty, and looked upon as a piece of destiny; and the criminal on his side took his punishment as a piece of destiny which had overtaken him, and bore it with the same fatalism ... In general we may say that punishment tames the man, but does not make him better.

Georg Morris Cohen Brandes

I am just learning to notice the different colors of the stars, and already begin to have a new enjoyment.

Maria Mitchell

Most successes are unhappy. That's why they are successes - they have to reassure themselves about themselves by achieving something that the world will notice.

Agatha Christie

Our enemies can deal a blow to us any time they wish. They did not wait for permission to do this. They do not deal a blow with prior notice. They do not take action because they can't.

Awareness is experiencing from moment to moment. Reason acts quickly in awareness, a thousand times faster than thought, and you do not even notice it is operating.

Barry Long

Itís curious what we take for granted or never even notice. Untold thousands of insects are devoured nightly by our little fury friends, the bats. They emerge at dusk and disappear at dawn, and we are hardly aware of what they have done for us.

Amanda Lollar, Bat World

Susan B. Anthony

The life of our city is rich in poetic and marvelous subjects. We are enveloped and steeped as though in an atmosphere of the marvelous; but we do not notice it.

Men are troublesome. They complain about trifles a woman wouldn't notice. The office boys...complain that the temperature of the building is too hot or too cold...If they have a slight headache, they stay at home.

Clara Lanza

Us sing and dance, make faces and give flower bouquets, trying to be loved. You ever notice that trees do everything to git attention we do, except walk?

Alice Walker

Tackling challenges that are too big for you is what makes you grow as a human being. Why do you think this problem keeps coming up in your life, staring you in the face? Do you think youíre supposed to ignore it and hide from it and wait for someone else to solve it for you? If you notice it, you own it.

Steve Pavlina

John Locke

The happiest people are those who are too busy to notice whether they are or not.

William Feather

With respect to the two words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators. If the words obtained so readily a place in the "Articles of Confederation," and received so little notice in their admission into the present Constitution, and retained for so long a time a silent place in both, the fairest explanation is, that the words, in the alternative of meaning nothing or meaning everything, had the former meaning taken for granted

James Madison

I notice me. I notice you too. And there are simple things that we don't even try anymore. There's a way out of this. Beat the time. And every time I turn around we got some clever way to put each other down.
