Touch Quotes

The touch of time does more than the club of Hercules.

James Branch Cabell

It is the system, rather than individuals, that is the source of pollution and degradation. My prison-house environment is but another manifestation of the Midas-hand, whose cursed touch turns everything to the brutal service of Mammon.

Alexander Berkman

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

When you are confronted with terrible hardships, and no one offers you any support, when your friends turn into enemies, and even your relatives have deserted you, and when all support has given way, and all hope has been lost - if you then come to remember the Supreme Lord God, even the hot wind shall not touch you.

Sri Guru Granth Sahib

You are blind and I am deaf and dumb, so let us touch hands and understand.

Kahlil Gibran

By alienation is meant a mode of experience in which the person experiences himself as an alien. He has become, one might say, estranged from himself. He does not experience himself as the centre of his world, as the creator of his own acts - but his acts and their consequences have become his masters, whom he obeys, or whom he may even worship. The alienated person is out of touch with himself as he is out of touch with any other person. He, like the others, is experienced as things are experienced; with the senses and with common sense, but at the same time without being related to oneself and to the world outside positively

Erich Fromm

Money cannot be converted into houses or trained teachers or hospitals at the touch of a magic wand. There are limitations to our physical and intellectual resources.

Sir John James Cowperthwaite

The rooms were very still while the pages were softly turned and the winter sunshine crept in to touch the bright heads and serious faces with a Christmas greeting.

Louisa May Alcott

No great genius has ever existed without some touch of madness.

Aristotle

Reality is the leading cause of stress amongst those in touch with it

Lily Tomlin

Touch me, hold me. How my open arms ache! Try to fall for me.

Kate Bush

I wonder will death be much lonelier than life. Life's an awfully lonesome affair. You can live close against other people yet your lives never touch. You come into the world alone and you go out of the world alone yet it seems to me you are more alone while living than even coming and going.

Emily Carr

We need not be afraid to touch, to feel, to show emotion. The easiest thing in the world is to be what you are, what you feel. The hardest thing to be is what other people want you to be. Dont let them put you in that position.

Dr. Felice Leonardo Buscaglia

Of the 56 God-realised souls on earth, the five Perfect Masters are the most important. And the one who is the highest of all is the Avatar, myself. I come every 700 to 1400 years, and it is undoubtably a very rare and lucky thing for each of you to have the opportunity of loving me individually, since even the Sadgurus long to touch the Avatar physically. When the world is in the grip of pain, misery, suffering and chaos, I manifest myself. Spirituality then reaches its pinnacle, and materialism is at its lowest level. Then again, with the passing of time, spirituality diminishes and materialism increases. From the beginning of time this game has been going on, and it will go on for an eternity.

Meher Baba

See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...we need silence to be able to touch souls.

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Some people fall in love and touch the sky. Some people fall in love and find quicksand.

Brandon Boyd

I want to run,I want to hide,I want to tear down the walls that hold me inside.I want to reach out and touch the plains,Where the streets have no names

Paul David Hewson

Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.

Charles Dickens

Any fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius-and a lot of courage-to move in the opposite direction.

Albert Einstein

Intolerance is the Do Not Touch sign on something that cannot bear touching. We do not mind having our hair ruffled, but we will not tolerate any familiarity with the toupee which covers our baldness.

Eric Hoffer

You meet someone and youre sure you were lovers in a past life. After two weeks with them, you realize why you havent kept in touch for the last two thousand years.

Al Cleathen

As long as there are young men with the light of adventure in their eyes or a touch of wildness in their souls, rapids will be run.

Sigurd F. Olson

What we aim to do is calm the spirit and get in touch with the source from which everything comes, removing any trace of malice or egotism. If you spend too much time trying to find out what is good or bad about someone else, youll forget your own soul and end up exhausted and defeated by the energy you have wasted in judging others.

Paulo Coelho

When I left the show, the fans were so amazing in terms of the outpouring of support and continued support all that time whatever ways they could be in touch with me.

Alice Barrett
