Unlike Quotes

Sycophancy toward those who hold power is a fact in every regime, and especially in a democracy, where, unlike tyranny, there is an accepted principle of legitimacy that breaks the inner will to resist.

Allan David Bloom

Unlike the small community, where every person lives in the illusion of having the same ideals, beliefs, and values as everyone else, in the larger context of plural communities-be it in country, continent, or globe we live in the illusion of absolute difference. So, fearing the possibility that the interaction will change us, we magnify the threat involved in engaging with that which differs from us. Change is stressful, and costly, because it requires learning to navigate the unfamiliar. In the end, you cannot work with anyone who is different, and problems that could be resolved if we allowed everyone to contribute the best of themselves begin to look intractable.

Hafsat Abiola

So peace will come again on Earth but a peace unlike aught known before. Then will the will-to-good flower forth as understanding And understanding blossom as goodwill in men.

Alice A. Bailey

Unlike a number of sensational writers, I do not want wish to convey the impression that there are witches at work on every corner of the land.

Gerald Gardner

Unlike femininity, relaxed masculinity is at bottom empty, a limp nullity. While the female body is full of internal potentiality, the male is internally barren. Manhood at the most basic level can be validated and expressed only in action.

George Gilder

Democracies, unlike dictatorships, are forgiving and generous, but they cannot survive unless they fight.

Jalal Talabani

We meditate for various reasons. Peace of mind we all badly need. Therefore, when we meditate, either consciously or unconsciously we aim at peace of mind. Meditation give us peace of mind without a tranquilliser. And unlike a tranquilliser, the peace of mind that we get from meditation does not fade away. It lasts for good in some corner of the inmost recesses of our aspiring heart

Sri Chinmoy

Advertising practitioners are interpreters. But unlike foreign language interpreters, adpeople must constantly learn new languages. They must understand the language of each new product, and speak the language of each new target audience.

Jef I. Richards

Unlike any other form of writing, the stories of episodic television require the blended imagination, talent, and tenacity of a staff of writers.

Daniel Petrie

Americans have the right and advantage of being armed, unlike the people of other countries, whose leaders are afraid to trust them with arms.

James Madison

Unlike femininity, relaxed masculinity is at bottom empty, a limp nullity. While the female body is full of internal potentiality, the male is internally barren.... Manhood at the most basic level can be validated and expressed only in action.

George Gilder

Unlike grown ups, children have little need to deceive themselves.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Censorship, like charity, should begin at home; but unlike charity, it should end there.

Clare Boothe Luce

In real life, unlike in Shakespeare, the sweetness of the rose depends upon the name it bears. Things are not only what they are. They are, in very important respects, what they seem to be.

Hubert H. Humphrey

We could say that meditation doesn't have a reason or doesn't have a purpose. In this respect it's unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don't do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment

Alan Watts
