Turn Quotes

Never let your persistence and passion turn into stubbornness and ignorance.

Anthony J D'Angelo

All men have a sweetness in their life. That is what helps them go on. It is towards that they turn when they feel too worn out.

Albert Camus:

Sordid selfishness doth contract and narrow our benevolence, and cause us, like serpents, to infold ourselves within ourselves, and to turn out our stings to the entire world besides.

Sir Walter Scott

If I had to give a definition of capitalism I would say: the process whereby American girls turn into American women.

Most people are in a factory from nine till five. Their job may be to turn out 263 little circles. At the end of the week they're three short and somebody has a go at them. On Saturday afternoons they deserve something to go and shout about.

Rodney Marsh

When you stop talking, you've lost your customer. When you turn your back, you've lost her.

Mean spirits under disappointment, like small beer in a thunderstorm always turn sour.

Can you really ask what reason Pythagoras had for abstaining from flesh? For my part I rather wonder both by what accident and in what state of soul or mind the first man did so, touched his mouth to gore and brought his lips to the flesh of a dead creature, he who set forth tables of dead, stale bodies and ventured to call food and nourishment the parts that had a little before bellowed and cried, moved and lived. How could his eyes endure the slaughter when throats were slit and hides flayed and limbs torn from limb? How could his nose endure the stench? How was it that the pollution did not turn away his taste, which made contact with the sores of others and sucked juices and serums from mortal wounds?

Plutarch

The grand show is eternal. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on seas and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.

John Muir

No relationship in life can be any more successful than what we are willing to learn about ourselves through it. The moment we turn our back on what others give us to see about ourselves, we not only walk away from what we need to see, but also from the better person we could be . . . were we only willing to learn the lesson at hand.

Guy Finley

For women who turn to welfare, Big Brother becomes Husband.

Our defeat at the hands of England could turn out to be a major positive.

Justin Langer

Jealousy is simply and clearly the fear that you do not have value. Jealousy scans for evidence to prove the point - that others will be preferred and rewarded more than you. There is only one alternative - self-value. If you cannot love yourself, you will not believe that you are loved. You will always think it's a mistake or luck. Take your eyes off others and turn the scanner within. Find the seeds of your jealousy, clear the old voices and experiences. Put all the energy into building your personal and emotional security. Then you will be the one others envy, and you can remember the pain and reach out to them.

Jennifer James

An idea can turn to dust or magic, depending on the talent that rubs against it.

William Bernbach

Dancing faces you towards Heaven, whichever direction you turn.

Sweetpea Tyler

Chance happens to all, but to turn chance to account is the gift of few.

Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

Obstacles are necessary for success because in selling, as in all careers of importance, victory comes only after many struggles and countless defeats. Yet each struggle, each defeat, sharpens your skills and strengths, your courage and your endurance, your ability and your confidence and thus each obstacle is a comrade-in-arms forcing you to become better… or quit. Each rebuff is an opportunity to move forward; turn away from them, avoid them, and you throw away your future.

Og Mandino

A woman who has no way of expressing herself and of realizing herself as a full human being has nothing else to turn to but the owning of material things

Enriqueta Longauex-Vasquez

Culture is an instrument wielded by professors to manufacture professors, who when their turn comes will manufacture professors

Simone Weil

Genius is no respecter of time, trouble, money or persons, the four things around which human affairs turn most persistently.

Samuel Butler

Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long. Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals. No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders. How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come.

Og Mandino

The tendency to turn human judgments into divine commands makes religion one of the most dangerous forces in the world.
