Different Points Of View Quotes By Denise Mina

With my earlier books, I got quite bored being with one protagonist all the way through. With the Alex Morrow books, I wanted to do something a bit more holistic, so there were lots of different points of view, and I wanted to look at aspects of crime that you don't tend to look at. — Denise Mina

Different Points Of View Quotes By Colin Powell

I have always tried to do my job in a way that I have people give me different points of view. — Colin Powell

Different Points Of View Quotes By Mary Travers

Folk music has always contained a concern for the human condition. And since it brings people into it from different points of view, that can help illuminate what a consensus might be to important issues. — Mary Travers

Different Points Of View Quotes By Bart D. Ehrman

Different authors have different points of view. You can't just say, 'I believe in the Bible. — Bart D. Ehrman

Different Points Of View Quotes By Yongey Mingyur

We choose ignorance because we can. We choose awareness because we can. Samsara and nirvana are simply different points of view based on the choices we make in how to examine and understand our experience. There's nothing magical about nirvana and nothing bad or wrong about samsara. If you're determined to think of yourself as limited, fearful, vulnerable, or scarred by past experience, know only that you have chosen to do so, and that the opportunity to experience yourself differently is always available. — Yongey Mingyur

Different Points Of View Quotes By Eraldo Banovac

To observe life as an inevitability and to observe the nuanced stratification of life are two completely different points of view on life. — Eraldo Banovac

Different Points Of View Quotes By James A. Chu

Switches among identities occur in response to changes in emotional state or to environmental demands, resulting in another identity emerging to assume control. Because different identities have different roles, experiences, emotions, memories, and beliefs, the therapist is constantly contending with their competing points of view. Helping the identities to be aware of one another as legitimate parts of the self and to negotiate and resolve their conflicts is at the very core of the therapeutic process. It is countertherapeutic for the therapist to treat any alternate identity as if it were more "real" or more important than any other.

Guidelines for Treating Dissociative Identity Disorder in Adults, Third Revision — James A. Chu

Different Points Of View Quotes By Jeff Raikes

In business, there's a constant focus on developing strategies, reviewing executive performance against those strategies each year, engaging with opposing or different points of view, and having intellectual dialogue. — Jeff Raikes

Different Points Of View Quotes By Henry David Thoreau

If you are describing any occurrence ... make two or more distinct reports at different times ... We discriminate at first only a few features, and we need to reconsider our experience from many points of view and in various moods in order to perceive the whole. — Henry David Thoreau

Different Points Of View Quotes By Max Weber

In fact, one may - this simple proposition, which is often forgotten should be placed at the beginning of every study which essays to deal with rationalism - rationalize life from fundamentally different basic points of view and in very different directions. Rationalism is an historical concept which covers a whole world of different things. It will be our task to find out whose intellectual child the particular concrete form of rational thought was, from which the idea of a calling and the devotion to labour in the calling has grown, which is, as we have seen, so irrational from the standpoint of purely eudaemonistic self-interest, but which has been and still is one of the most characteristic elements of our capitalistic culture. — Max Weber

Different Points Of View Quotes By Marcus Miller

I think jazz is a beautiful, democratic music. It encourages musicians with very strong, and many times, very different points of view to work together as a team while, at the same time, giving them the space to express their individuality. It's a very important art form and can be used as a model for different cultures to work together. — Marcus Miller

Different Points Of View Quotes By Alan Kay

By the time I got to school, I had already read a couple hundred books. I knew in the first grade that they were lying to me because I had already been exposed to other points of view. School is basically about one point of view
the one the teacher has or the textbooks have. They don't like the idea of having different points of view, so it was a battle. Of course I would pipe up with my five-year-old voice. — Alan Kay

Different Points Of View Quotes By Colin Powell

I respect the fact that many denominations have different points of view with respect to gay marriage and they can hold that in the sanctity in the place of their religion and not bless them or solemnize them. — Colin Powell

Different Points Of View Quotes By Alfonso Gomez-Rejon

On some kind of unspoken, deep, deep level, I think we [with Ryan Murphy] have an aesthetic that we both understand or connect to. It's not that we see the world in the same way because we have very different points of view, but we're both visual stylists. — Alfonso Gomez-Rejon

Different Points Of View Quotes By Alice Walker

Part of what confuses people in times of upheaval is that you're getting so many different points of view and directions and so and so, how to do this and do that. And a lot of it is written in a language that honestly most people cannot understand. — Alice Walker

Different Points Of View Quotes By Gwen Ifill

Because I would never work for a niche publication or a niche program on television and because I am a journalist and not an opinion person, my job is to try to see how many different points of view I can represent or how. It's not even a question of who you don't offend because you are always going to offend somebody. The question is how can you get people to listen to the information you have to present. — Gwen Ifill

Different Points Of View Quotes By Rabindranath Tagore

We can look upon a road from two different points of view. One regards it as dividing us from the object of our desire; in that case we count every step of our journey over it as something attained by force in the face of obstruction. The other sees it as the road which leads us to our destination; and as such it is part of our goal. — Rabindranath Tagore

Different Points Of View Quotes By Melissa McCarthy

I think there's so many points of view that you want to make sure your stories are being told from men and women ... you get all of the different backgrounds. You don't want every story being told from the same point of view. So just for better storytelling, I'm like, 'Yes, please, bring some more ladies on.' — Melissa McCarthy

Different Points Of View Quotes By David Foster Wallace

Who wouldn't love this jargon we dress common sense in: "formal innovation is no longer transformative, having been co-opted by the forces of stabilization and post-industrial inertia," blah, blah. But this co-optation might actually be a good thing if it helped keep younger writers from being able to treat mere formal ingenuity as an end in itself. MTV-type co-optation could end up a great prophylactic against cleveritis - you know, the dreaded grad-school syndrome of like "Watch me use seventeen different points of view in this scene of a guy eating a Saltine." The real point of that shit is "Like me because I'm clever" - which of course is itself derived from commercial art's axiom about audience-affection determining art's value. — David Foster Wallace

Different Points Of View Quotes By Penelope Lively

Conventional forms of narrative allow for different points of view, but for this book I wanted a structure whereby each of the main characters contributed a distinctive version of the story. — Penelope Lively

Different Points Of View Quotes By Paul Emsley

I'm developed as an artist to accept the fact there are different points of view, but I believe in what I do and I have to stay with that. — Paul Emsley

Different Points Of View Quotes By David B. Yoffie

Grove continued to act on the conviction that good strategic thinking requires different points of view and clarifying those different points of view requires intensive, ongoing debate involving the executive team and domain experts inside and outside the company. — David B. Yoffie

Different Points Of View Quotes By June Jordan

Our earth is round, and, among other things, that means that you and I can hold completely different points of view and both be right. The difference of our positions will show stars in your window I cannot even imagine. Your sky may burn with light, while mine, at the same moment, spreads beautiful to darkness. Still we must choose how we separately corner the circling universe of our experience. Once chosen, our cornering will determine the message of any star and darkness we encounter. — June Jordan

Different Points Of View Quotes By Donna Karan

I don't feel burdened, but I do feel a little frustrated. Because I see the problem, and I can see the solution - but there are two strongly different points of view on this - like the Republicans and Democrats. — Donna Karan

Different Points Of View Quotes By Miguel Angel Ruiz

It doesn't matter whether you believe in Christ, Moses, Allah, Brahma, Buddha, or any other being or master. Each one of us has our own beliefs, our own point of view. There are billions of different points of view, but it's the same force of life behind each one of us. — Miguel Angel Ruiz

Different Points Of View Quotes By Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

'21 Grams' is only one story told by three different points of view, but they are really physically connected - literally, with the heart. — Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Different Points Of View Quotes By Kathleen Winter

I think my writing process changes as I gain more life experience ... It has taken me many years to be able to write a novel that shows the points of view of people of different ages and personalities. — Kathleen Winter

Different Points Of View Quotes By Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

At a very young age, I was influenced enormously by Julio Cortazar or Carlos Fuentes. In that literature, there's always an exploration of different perspectives, points of view. — Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Different Points Of View Quotes By Dan Brown

I often will write a scene from three different points of view to find out which has the most tension and which way I'm able to conceal the information I'm trying to conceal. And that is, at the end of the day, what writing suspense is all about. — Dan Brown

Different Points Of View Quotes By August Strindberg

Friendship can only exist between persons with similar interests and points of view. Man and woman by the conventions of society are born with different interests and different points of view. — August Strindberg

Different Points Of View Quotes By Gia Coppola

Anyone can create and put stuff out there, so then as viewers and listeners, we have access to a lot of different unique view points. — Gia Coppola

Different Points Of View Quotes By Stewart O'Nan

As a fiction writer, my favorite tools are my imagination and the peculiar opportunities offered by different points of view. — Stewart O'Nan

Different Points Of View Quotes By Wislawa Szymborska

Each of us has a very rich nature and can look at things objectively, from a distance, and at the same time can have something more personal to say about them. I am trying to look at the world, and at myself, from many different points of view. I think many poets have this duality. — Wislawa Szymborska

Different Points Of View Quotes By Karina Longworth

Hollywood is really weird to talk about in this monolithic sense because it's this microcosm of anywhere. It's full of a lot of people who have different intentions and different points of view. — Karina Longworth

Different Points Of View Quotes By Anna Murray

Well, here's one thing I think: MOST PEOPLE don't live like you and me and the kids we know in New York. And what's more, they DON'T WANT TO. I feel like a big doofus, but all of a sudden I'm realizing: there are lots of people who don't HAVE New York apartments or houses in Southampton and, get this, WOULDN'T WANT TO LIVE THERE ANYWAY. They'd probably think, "Wow, big, crowded place. Lotta snobs. How lame." On the other hand, they probably have their own Southamptons. Only it's someplace you and I would probably think is really lame. AMAZING that people can see the world from such totally different points of view. — Anna Murray

Different Points Of View Quotes By Joe Quesada

It always blows me away when I see people freak out because I've changed my mind on something. I'm not an elected official, folks. I didn't get my job by promising a bunch of things. I'm a businessman and a creator. If I don't have the ability to change my mind, if I don't have the ability to be open to different points of view, then I can't do this job properly. — Joe Quesada

Different Points Of View Quotes By Richard Hayne

If we go and see hundreds of different market resources, you are seeing hundreds of different points of view, and once in a while, my experience is, you will come across one or two that are just outstanding, and you never would have thought of them. — Richard Hayne

Different Points Of View Quotes By Tony Robbins

There are different points of view about how to approach this experience of ultimate ecstasy, as some people describe it, or ultimate nirvana or ultimate fulfillment. — Tony Robbins

Different Points Of View Quotes By Sarah Caldwell

As the director of an opera, it is my responsibility to unify the style of the particular performance, but one can certainly approach the piece from different points of view. That's what makes it interesting and keeps it alive. — Sarah Caldwell

Different Points Of View Quotes By Clark Gregg

There's always changes in the way they do that in the cinematic universe. I think, with the S.H.I.E.L.D. 2.0, you're seeing some of the first ripples of those different points of view on what S.H.I.E.L.D. should be when it's rebuilt. I'm very, very curious to know which side Coulson will end up on in that struggle. — Clark Gregg

Different Points Of View Quotes By Virginia Woolf

Her pleasant brown eyes resembled Ralph's, save in expression, for whereas he seemed to look straightly and keenly at one object, she appeared to be in the habit of considering everything from many different points of view. — Virginia Woolf

Different Points Of View Quotes By Vicki Donlan

Now, on the other hand, if we booted all the men out of corporate America, and we had all women there, quite honestly I think they'd be just as corrupt as what we have right now. I think it's best to have diversity and different points of view. — Vicki Donlan

Different Points Of View Quotes By Shirley Maclaine

We've had so many lifetimes of different cultures and different religions and different points of view and different wars and different loves and different children. — Shirley Maclaine

Different Points Of View Quotes By Brandan Roberston

But part of loving is sacrificing our ego's need to be right. Part of loving is realising that all of us are on the same journey, seeking the same things, but find ourselves at different places. When we are able to acknowledge and accept this reality; we are freed from the desire to force others into our systems, our beliefs and our points of view. — Brandan Roberston

Different Points Of View Quotes By Elvis Mitchell

African films should be thought of as offering as many different points of view as the film of any other different continent. Nobody would say that French film is all European film, or Italian film is all European film. And in the same way that those places have different filmmakers that speak to different issues, all the countries in Africa have that too. — Elvis Mitchell

Different Points Of View Quotes By Christine Kenneally

It's clear by now that the problem of language evolution is completely intractable when you approach it from the perspective of a single discipline. For all the salient questions to be answered, the multidisciplinary nature of the field will have to become even more so. So far, it has taken years for individuals in different departments to start talking, to develop research questions that make sense for more than one narrow line of inquiry, and to start to understand one another's points of view. The field of language evolution needs students who can synthesize information from neuroscience, psychology, computer modeling, genetics, and linguistics. The more this happens, the richer and wider the field will become, instead of devolving around one or two theoretical issues. — Christine Kenneally

Different Points Of View Quotes By Alan Kay

School is basically about one point of view - the one the teacher has or the textbooks have. They don't like the idea of having different points of view, ... — Alan Kay

Different Points Of View Quotes By Michel De Montaigne

Traveling through the world produces a marvelous clarity in the judgment of men. We are all of us confined and enclosed within ourselves, and see no farther than the end of our nose. This great world is a mirror where we must see ourselves in order to know ourselves. There are so many different tempers, so many different points of view, judgments, opinions, laws and customs to teach us to judge wisely on our own, and to teach our judgment to recognize its imperfection and natural weakness. — Michel De Montaigne

Different Points Of View Quotes By Robert M. Hutchins

Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes different points of view. — Robert M. Hutchins

Different Points Of View Quotes By Robert A. Caro

Determining the essence of different points of view (what Lyndon Johnson called "listening"), — Robert A. Caro

Different Points Of View Quotes By Katherine Howe

Of course mothers and daughters with strong personalities might see the world from very different points of view. — Katherine Howe

Different Points Of View Quotes By Shirley Manson

In the '90s, the radio was still alive with all different kinds of points of view, and I think that's why people are longing for that time. It was the first time that alternative music broke through to the mainstream. — Shirley Manson

Different Points Of View Quotes By Alton Brown

I think in the end there are only 20 or 30 tenets of basic cooking. It's going at perhaps the same issue from different angles, from different points of view, from different presentation styles, that really makes things sink in and become embedded. — Alton Brown

Different Points Of View Quotes By Robin Thicke

When I wrote for Jordan Knight, I was 17 or 18, they were pretty much the only songs I was writing. By the time people like Christina or Usher came around, I was able to know that I was writing for different points of view and people that might not want to say certain things. So you have to be considerate of whichever artist you're writing for. — Robin Thicke

Different Points Of View Quotes By Barack Obama

Ultimately, the challenges of the 21st century can't be met without collective action. Agreement will almost never be easy, and results won't always come quickly. But I am committed to respecting different points of view, and to forging a consensus instead of dictating our terms ... that's how we will advance and uphold our ideals. — Barack Obama

Different Points Of View Quotes By Joanne Lipman

MUSIC MAY NOT MAKE YOU A GENIUS, or rich, or even a better person. But it helps train you to think differently, to process different points of view - and most important, to take pleasure in listening. — Joanne Lipman

Different Points Of View Quotes By Christopher Meledandri

I take his [Theodore Geisel] legacy very, very seriously. I know others may disagree because he's made such an impact on so many people that response to work becomes very personal, so people will have different points of view. But, at the core of this, I take the protection and the extension of his legacy very, very seriously. It's a very important part of my life. — Christopher Meledandri

Different Points Of View Quotes By Fredrik Bajer

To read the report of a discussion in which arguments for and against are presented, in which a subject has been covered from different points of view, with new ideas advanced - this is far more instructive than to read a brief account of the resolution passed on the matter. — Fredrik Bajer

Different Points Of View Quotes By Alexander Rodchenko

One has to take several different shots of a subject, from different points of view and in different situations, as if one examined it in the round rather than looked through the same key-hole again and again. — Alexander Rodchenko

Different Points Of View Quotes By Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

'Babel' is about the point of view of others. It literally includes points of views as experienced from the other side. It is not about a hero. It is not about only one country. It is a prism that allows us to see the same reality from different angles. — Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Different Points Of View Quotes By Steven Spielberg

I think that a movie can only be an adjunct or only a supplement to books, to different points of view, to scholars, historians and your own teachers. — Steven Spielberg

Different Points Of View Quotes By Charles Wagner

The just man is not the product of a day, but of a long brooding and a painful birth. To become a power for peace, a man must first pass through experiences which lead him to see things in their different aspects: it is necessary that he have a wide horizon, and breathe various atmospheres
in a word, from crossing, one after another, paths and points of view the most diverse, and sometimes the most contradictory, he must acquire the faculty of putting himself in the place of others and appreciating them. — Charles Wagner

Different Points Of View Quotes By Jonathan Haidt

That might be good news for rationalists - maybe we can think carefully whenever we believe it matters? Not quite. Tetlock found two very different kinds of careful reasoning. Exploratory thought is an "evenhanded consideration of alternative points of view." Confirmatory thought is "a one-sided attempt to rationalize a particular point of view."13 Accountability increases exploratory thought only when three conditions apply: (1) decision makers learn before forming any opinion that they will be accountable to an audience, (2) the audience's views are unknown, and (3) they believe the audience is well informed and interested in accuracy. — Jonathan Haidt

Different Points Of View Quotes By Roxane Gay

We have to believe that we can hold different points of view without labeling each other bad feminists. — Roxane Gay

Different Points Of View Quotes By Christopher G. Nuttall

One of the most dangerous signs of decline is the sudden reluctance to tolerate different points of view in political debate. Questions and issues that were discussed freely are suddenly forbidden, limiting the realm of political science. The reluctance to question the fundamental basis of our culture and society is, in itself, crippling free enquiry and freedom of speech. — Christopher G. Nuttall

Different Points Of View Quotes By Victor Navone

We [film supervisors] always try to encourage discussion in the room because a lot of times newer animators who are just out of school or people come from other studios, they're gonna have different points of view and we want to make sure we're vetting all the ideas to get the best ones. A lot of people are shy about speaking up if this is their first time at Pixar or if they don't have a lot of experience, so we try to encourage that. — Victor Navone

Different Points Of View Quotes By Mike Lee

That's why we have senators and members of congress from every state. That's why we have elections. Because the people speak and there are different viewpoints out there. It doesn't mean just because we're members of one party or another, doesn't mean that we behave monolithically. It means that we will express our view points. — Mike Lee

Different Points Of View Quotes By Ron Lizzi

Whether your situation is dire or stable often depends on your point of view. Exploring different vantage points can give you valuable perspective. — Ron Lizzi

Different Points Of View Quotes By Shannon L. Alder

The problem with our culture is we cling to so many different truths. Yet, the truths that we cling to also depend on our point of view. Maybe, the journey to a truth that can be free of hatred, bias and injustice requires a journey of the soul to see all view points. — Shannon L. Alder

Different Points Of View Quotes By Viggo Mortensen

I look at my job as looking at the world from points of view that are different from mine - sometimes radically different from mine. — Viggo Mortensen

Different Points Of View Quotes By Harvey V. Fineberg

When you're dealing with a problem as complex as autism, you have to look at it from many different points of view and assemble evidence from many different vantage points. Biological evidence in humans and in animals, toxicologic evidence, how does the body deal with toxins, and evidence looking at the actual experience in populations. — Harvey V. Fineberg

Different Points Of View Quotes By Neil Gaiman

In truth, Kipling's politics are not mine. But then, it would be a poor sort of world if one were only able to read authors who expressed points of view that one agreed with entirely. It would be a bland sort of world if we could not spend time with people who thought differently, and who saw the world from a different place. — Neil Gaiman

Different Points Of View Quotes By Helen LaKelly Hunt

There is a growing interest in examining the point at which the political and the spiritual intersect. Service to others is a spiritual value, and the overt recognition of this can be part of the development of our wholeness. My hope is to add my voice to the chorus of other women who are calling for a bridge between the secular and the spiritual. Our effectiveness in building this bridge will depend on how well we connect to each other in every interaction. That means taking the time to listen to those who come from points of view that are different from our own. If we listen well, learn from one another, and find the ability to empathize with one another's experiences, I believe the split will have served us well. When a broken bone mends, it becomes stronger along the break. When we strengthen our connections to one another, we become whole. And when we are whole, we are empowered an can empower others. — Helen LaKelly Hunt

Different Points Of View Quotes By Hamish Bowles

We're obviously in a strange environment where practically anyone can set themselves up as a pundit of sorts. It's all about sorting the wheat from the chaff, and I'm very interested in reading different points of view, and certainly different generations than my own that have such a very different world view. — Hamish Bowles

Different Points Of View Quotes By Ang Lee

Sometimes films ignore other points of view because it's simpler to tell the story that way, but the more genuine and sympathetic you are to different points of view and situations, the more real the story is. — Ang Lee

Different Points Of View Quotes By Richard Madden

One of the most beautiful things about 'Game of Thrones' is it's told from so many different points of view, and these characters can convince you that what they're doing is right. But they're only showing you a bit of the picture, and when you see it from another character's point of view you may switch allegiances. — Richard Madden

Different Points Of View Quotes By Flemming Rose

There is no society that protects freedom of religion more than secular democracies, because in societies where one religion rules, different viewpoints will be labelled as heresy and blasphemy. Why? Because the society is built on religion - not freedom for all points of view. — Flemming Rose

Different Points Of View Quotes By Patricia L. Sunderland

Yes, it is true that one generally needs to speak to the members of the key audience for a product or service. But as we are not trying to plumb an individual psyche for psychological motivation, but are rather trying to elucidate the relevant symbolic cultural meanings and practices, information garnered from those who do not like something is also relevant to understanding the cultural picture. In fact, contestation between points of view and meanings is a crucial aspect of the social dynamic. These nodal points of disagreement and different points of view can be precisely the most intriguing domains of cultural movement and thus new opportunities. — Patricia L. Sunderland

Different Points Of View Quotes By Margaret Atwood

Reality simply consists of different points of view. — Margaret Atwood

Different Points Of View Quotes By Irene Rosenfeld

I believe very strongly in the value of having a diverse team around me that comes from very different backgrounds and different points of view. — Irene Rosenfeld
