Top Gravitate Quotes

Gravitate Quotes By Rick Remender

Shit, man, democracy failed before it started.

Who thought it was a good idea to let the masses of fucktards decide anything?

[Guess I've got more faith in people.]

People? The election of 2044 -- Curls Bellberry, a boy band presidency on the platform that the Earth is flat and that he'd nuke New York to save Social Security. There's a good reason he was the last president.

Problem with letting people pick a leader is they gravitate towards confident sociopaths no matter how stupid they are.

It's the perception of qualification that fools people.

At least by having corporate executives rule us we get folks who are good at business.

Life hurts, the world is fucked, and that's not going to change. . . — Rick Remender

Gravitate Quotes By RuPaul

I'd like to go for people I admire - I always gravitate towards the people I idolized when I was a teenager: Cher, Diana Ross, and David Bowie. — RuPaul

Gravitate Quotes By Park Dietz

Psychiatrists are usually very well imbued with the clinical role, where helping the sick person is the goal. And that's quite incompatible with the truthseeking role. That's probably true of the other fields, too, but maybe more so of the personalities that gravitate toward psychiatry. They tend to care about people and wish to be helpful. — Park Dietz

Gravitate Quotes By Matt Nix

I really gravitate to the comedy of tonal contrasts. I hope that doesn't sound insufferably pretentious. What I mean is people having reactions to things that seem inappropriate, or being happy in an apparently unhappy situation. — Matt Nix

Gravitate Quotes By Alastair Reynolds

I really struggle to pinpoint whether I became a scientist because I like science fiction, or did I gravitate to science fiction because I identified strongly with scientists. — Alastair Reynolds

Gravitate Quotes By George Fetherling

Prague is not, strictly speaking, travel writing but it is, among other things, an excellent example of what travel writing is becoming, if indeed it hasn't already done so ... People are no longer so easily satisfied by the mere travel impressions of some outsider much like themselves. Instead they gravitate towards writers who actually have lived not simply in, but inside, a location for an extended period, as one lives inside one's clothes. — George Fetherling

Gravitate Quotes By Rachel Hartman

I was drawn to his aloofness, the way cats gravitate toward people who'd rather avoid them. — Rachel Hartman

Gravitate Quotes By M. Leighton

I think broken people gravitate toward one another, like our shattered pieces connect on a level that unscarred people never know. — M. Leighton

Gravitate Quotes By Mike Love

People say the Beatles were John Lennon. What is Paul McCartney? Chopped liver? But everyone has their own favourite members whose creativity they gravitate to. That's normal. — Mike Love

Gravitate Quotes By Ezra Furman

I think I gravitate towards rock 'n' roll as a playground where I can say anything. — Ezra Furman

Gravitate Quotes By Kerry Washington

I don't gravitate toward any one designer because I think of fashion as the costume of the everyday woman. — Kerry Washington

Gravitate Quotes By Victoria Legrand

I like to find the beauty in the ugly. When I'm in a thrift store, I gravitate toward pieces I know I'll wear a ton, and insane pieces that I'm sure most people would consider gross. But I find them inspiring. Our van is currently stocked with some of my random findings from this tour. Maybe I'll call my aesthetic 'van fashion.' — Victoria Legrand

Gravitate Quotes By Camille Paglia

It was in reading Tristam Shandy that I noticed how it is primarily men who gravitate towards the game-playing self-reflexive style. There is an alienation from emotion in it, a Nervous Nelly fear of letting go and being "exposed." As an attitude towards life, it betrays a perpetual adolescence. Those who hurled themselves after Derrida were not the most sophisticated but the most pretentious, and least creative members of my generation of academics. — Camille Paglia

Gravitate Quotes By Roselee Goldberg

I think what art is always doing is making us see the world so differently, and I don't mean just colors and light, but re-thinking relationships, spatial relationships, psychological relationships ... those who gravitate to the art world actually want to be puzzled. — Roselee Goldberg

Gravitate Quotes By D. A. Carson

People do not drift toward Holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; we drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated. — D. A. Carson

Gravitate Quotes By Peter Dinklage

I love working with the same actors repeatedly. That happens a lot. It's kind of inevitable, especially if you work with the same writers and directors and you start to form a company of actors. You gravitate towards each other. — Peter Dinklage

Gravitate Quotes By Christopher Alexander

When they have a choice, people will always gravitate to those rooms which have light on two sides, and leave the rooms which are lit only from one side unused and empty. — Christopher Alexander

Gravitate Quotes By Dan Brown

Truth has power. And if we all gravitate toward similar ideas, maybe we do so because those ideas are true ... written deep within us. And when we hear the truth, even if we don't understand it, we feel that truth resonate within us ... vibrating with our unconscious wisdom. Perhaps the truth is not learned by us, but rather, the truth is re-called ... re-membered ... -re-cognized ... as that which is already inside us. — Dan Brown

Gravitate Quotes By Michael Pollan

It may also be that, quite apart from any specific references one food makes to another, it is the very allusiveness of cooked food that appeals to us, as indeed that same quality does in poetry or music or art. We gravitate towards complexity and metaphor, it seems, and putting fire to meat or fermenting fruit and grain, gives us both: more sheer sensory information and, specifically, sensory information that, like metaphor, points away from the here and now. This sensory metaphor - this stands for that - is one of the most important transformations of nature wrought by cooking. And so a piece of crisped pig skin becomes a densely allusive poem of flavors: coffee and chocolate, smoke and Scotch and overripe fruit and, too, the sweet-salty-woodsy taste of maple syrup on bacon I loved as a child. As with so many other things, we humans seem to like our food overdetermined. — Michael Pollan

Gravitate Quotes By Christopher Nolan

I think for me when you look at the idea of being able to create a limitless world and use it almost as a playground for action and adventure and so forth, I naturally gravitate towards cinematic worlds, whether it's the Bond films and things like that. — Christopher Nolan

Gravitate Quotes By Brittany Snow

After 'Prom Night' I did two movies where I was playing a prostitute. I gravitate towards characters that have some sort of inner turmoil or some sort of character arc. That's the great thing about acting, so many different things and being really diverse in your choices. — Brittany Snow

Gravitate Quotes By Michelle Yeoh

I gravitate towards roles where women find strength in very difficult, uncompromising situations but maintain clarity in mind, discipline at heart, and a certain strength in spirit. — Michelle Yeoh

Gravitate Quotes By Jack Canfield

When you truly are on purpose, the people, resources, and opportunities you need naturally gravitate toward you. — Jack Canfield

Gravitate Quotes By Charles Krauthammer

Third parties in America gravitate not only to the extremes, but to irrelevance. (John Anderson's upcoming presidential campaign will undoubtedly confirm both tendencies.) — Charles Krauthammer

Gravitate Quotes By Mitch Albom

As children grow, they gravitate to their fates. — Mitch Albom

Gravitate Quotes By Derek Thompson

People gravitate toward products that are bold, but instantly comprehensible: Most Advanced Yet Acceptable--MAYA. — Derek Thompson

Gravitate Quotes By Robert Osborne

For some reason, the movies in the '40s have the best personalities: Jimmy Stewart, Gary Cooper, Betty Grable, Gene Tierney, and all those people. For some reason, I seem to gravitate more toward the '40s, and I don't necessarily know why. I just love the people. — Robert Osborne

Gravitate Quotes By Sarah Stillman

I tend to gravitate toward the "act two," or "act three," or "act four" stories - either things that are underreported, where we think we already know the common narrative, or things that are at the margins of an over-reported story, where we're all so focused in one direction that we're missing something crucial that's unfolding off to the side. — Sarah Stillman

Gravitate Quotes By Henry Miller

A man should begin with his own times. He should become acquainted first of all with the world in which he is living and participating. He should not be afraid of reading too much or too little. He should take his reading as he does his food or his exercise. The good reader will gravitate to the good books. He will discover from his contemporaries what is inspiring or fecundating, or merely enjoyable, in past literature. He should have the pleasure of making these discoveries on his own, in his own way. What has worth, charm, beauty, wisdom, cannot be lost or forgotten. But things can lose all value, all charm and appeal, if one is dragged to them by the scalp. — Henry Miller

Gravitate Quotes By Mohsin Hamid

And also I think the rise of other, you could say, destinations for international jihadis mean that Pakistan isn't necessarily the place where people from all over the world who want to engage in these activities gravitate to. They're going now to places like Syria or Yemen Libya, elsewhere. — Mohsin Hamid

Gravitate Quotes By James Allen

And you, too, youthful reader, will realize the Vision (not the idle wish) of your heart, be it base or beautiful, or a mixture of both, for you will always gravitate toward that which you, secretly, most love. — James Allen

Gravitate Quotes By Jay Griffiths

The woods are a place where children can go to think. Children gravitate towards these spaces. When I was a child it was nothing more than a scrubby little overhang under a rhododendron bush, but it was incredibly important to me. — Jay Griffiths

Gravitate Quotes By Brittany Snow

Pretty much everything that I pick, when it comes to choosing roles, is just based on things and materials that grabs me. It's pretty much the subject matter that I gravitate towards. — Brittany Snow

Gravitate Quotes By Alyse M. Gardner

You noticed something was off Saturday night, didn't you? I mean, outside of the fact that there was a stupid dark fae trying to hone in on someone that she could sink her baby snake teeth into? Nic and I may not be together, but we are each other's. Didn't you feel the tension you slithering whore? We gravitate and revolve around one another like suns and moons, the earth being what keeps up apart. — Alyse M. Gardner

Gravitate Quotes By Iman

The women I gravitate to are the ones who defy convention and reinvent themselves - hence, they reinvent the world around them. — Iman

Gravitate Quotes By B.J. Novak

Good comics gravitate to each other; you know who's your type of person by watching them onstage, hopefully. — B.J. Novak

Gravitate Quotes By Brad Goreski

I gravitate toward floral and graphic prints. — Brad Goreski

Gravitate Quotes By Albert Camus

And here are trees and I know their gnarled surface, water and I feel its taste. These scents of grass and stars at night, certain evenings when the heart relaxes-how shall I negate this world whose power and strength I feel? Yet all the knowledge on earth will give me nothing to assure me that this world is mine. You describe it to me and you teach me to classify it. You enumerate its laws and in my thirst for knowledge I admit that they are true. You take apart its mechanism and my hope increases. At the final stage you teach me that this wondrous and multicolored universe can be reduced to the atom and that the atom itself can be reduced to the electron. All this is good and I wait for you to continue. But you tell me of an invisible planetary system in which electrons gravitate around a nucleus. You explain this world to me with an image. I realize then that you have been reduced to poetry: I shall never know. — Albert Camus

Gravitate Quotes By Shawnee Smith

With any character I play, I gravitate to the juxtaposition and humor. — Shawnee Smith

Gravitate Quotes By Marg Helgenberger

I either play cops or criminals - I'm either on the right side of the law or the wrong side. I gravitate toward edgier material because it suits my nature. I find it fascinating to play. I'm just that kind of person. — Marg Helgenberger

Gravitate Quotes By C.S. Lewis

The medieval ideal brought together two things which have no natural tendency to gravitate towards one another. It brought them together for that very reason. It taught humility and forbearance to the great warrior because everyone knew by experience how much he usually needed that lesson. It demanded valour of the urbane and modest man because everyone knew that he was as likely as not to be a milksop. — C.S. Lewis

Gravitate Quotes By Stanley Schmidt

There are a significant number of people who appreciate what we do, and most of them gravitate to Analog because this is where they can find it. The other magazines tend to share their audiences, which may result in each of them having a smaller market share. — Stanley Schmidt

Gravitate Quotes By David Finch

I naturally gravitate to darker characters. Gotham. Batman's suit. It's all dark; he's very interesting. It all comes from his builds and guts. — David Finch

Gravitate Quotes By Grace Gealey

I find that when I put too much makeup on, or I use a certain brand, my skin will break out. I tend to gravitate towards water-based foundations because my skin absorbs them a little better and it doesn't break out as much. I use Hourglass Mineral Veil. It's so amazing. — Grace Gealey

Gravitate Quotes By Tim Harford

we don't ask what works, we simply gravitate to what sounds miraculous. — Tim Harford

Gravitate Quotes By Scott Snyder

When I get the possibility of using a character like Bruce Wayne or Dick Grayson, I try and think about what's most exciting or interesting about them as a person, so I try and think what they are at their core, or what piece of their psychology do I gravitate toward that I respect, and I'm excited by it when I read books about them. — Scott Snyder

Gravitate Quotes By Franz Kafka

People keep themselves at a tolerable height above an infernal abyss toward which they gravitate only by putting out all their strength and lovingly helping one another. They are tied together by ropes, and it's bad enough when the ropes around an individual loosen and he drops somewhat lower than the others into empty space; ghastly when the ropes break and he falls. That's why we should cling to the others. — Franz Kafka

Gravitate Quotes By Matthew Perry

I gravitate towards sort of broken characters who try to be better people. — Matthew Perry

Gravitate Quotes By Claudia Rankine

Sometimes the art pieces I gravitate toward speak to me in terms of narrative, at other times they speak to me in terms of mood. — Claudia Rankine

Gravitate Quotes By Kevin Hart

You might be the funniest guy in the world, but if you don't have anything to talk about, people are eventually going to gravitate towards the guy that's actually saying something. — Kevin Hart

Gravitate Quotes By Tom DeLonge

When I write in the studio, I tend to gravitate toward the ability to play really loud, aggressive, post-punk stuff, with big, heavy guitars and a big rock drum sound. — Tom DeLonge

Gravitate Quotes By Evan Currie

We go in dark, quiet, and at a crawl. We do not gravitate, transmit, or even fart in the general direction of that thing. — Evan Currie

Gravitate Quotes By Aaron Paul

I knew that I tend to always gravitate to the indie side of things. — Aaron Paul

Gravitate Quotes By Steve Nash

Nothing is black-and-white, except for winning and losing, and maybe that's why people gravitate to that so much. — Steve Nash

Gravitate Quotes By Joey Santiago

I'm not technical. When I listen to music, I gravitate more toward the sonic aspect of it. The technical stuff of it, I get bored with it. These long solos? OK, already. You know your scales, big deal. I know it, too, but I don't want to do that. — Joey Santiago

Gravitate Quotes By A-Trak

There are things I like, there are things I strongly dislike. In my DJ sets and in my production I just gravitate towards what I like. — A-Trak

Gravitate Quotes By Jenna Fischer

I'm a lover of lists and five-year plans and Excel spreadsheets. Any way that I can have any control over the direction my life is going, I gravitate towards that. — Jenna Fischer

Gravitate Quotes By Nate Silver

People gravitate toward information that implies a happier outlook for them. — Nate Silver

Gravitate Quotes By Jacquelyn Jablonski

I'm boyish with a feminine twist. I definitely gravitate toward oversized things like shirts and jackets. I like a good trouser, but then I might mix it up with something more feminine, like a pointy boot or pumps. — Jacquelyn Jablonski

Gravitate Quotes By Alan Alda

I play tennis non-obsessively. I seem to beat people I play a lot or half the time, so I guess I gravitate to people who are as bad as I am. — Alan Alda

Gravitate Quotes By Seth MacFarlane

I don't gravitate toward any particular genre. I like to do things that interest me, regardless of genre. I've had a blast doing Cosmos, and I'm said that it's coming to an end. I would like to do something else like that. — Seth MacFarlane

Gravitate Quotes By David E. Kelley

I gravitate toward the law, I think, certainly more times than not, because it's our best mechanism for legislating human behavior, and morality, and ethics. — David E. Kelley

Gravitate Quotes By James Taranto

The Guardian's headline is 'How Going Green May Make You Mean.' We're inclined to think the chain of causation runs the other way - that people who are jerks to begin with gravitate toward verdant sanctimony. — James Taranto

Gravitate Quotes By Henry Rollins

I tend to gravitate to the darkest or most obscure part of any venue in an effort to have my own space to experience the music on my own, free from unwanted conversations and other distractions. — Henry Rollins

Gravitate Quotes By Bruce H. Lipton

We are living in a world that is in the late stage of a Caterpillar. It is very important to let go of the old and start to gravitate to the new because we are leaving behind a world that is no longer sustainable and moving into a world in which we can thrive. — Bruce H. Lipton

Gravitate Quotes By Josh Keaton

Spiderman was my favorite comic book character growing up. I'm a geek, so I love the fact Peter Parker is into science. And I gravitate towards short guys. I'm 5' 9" now, but in junior high, I got picked on because I was 4' 8". — Josh Keaton

Gravitate Quotes By Stefan Emunds

Have faith, let go, and gravitate towards. — Stefan Emunds

Gravitate Quotes By Ashley Montagu

Girls marry for love. Boys marry because of a chronic irritation that causes them to gravitate in the direction of objects with certain curvilinear properties. — Ashley Montagu

Gravitate Quotes By Donnie Wahlberg

You can't control what people gravitate to and what they don't. We can only control the work that we do and try to give it the best that we can. — Donnie Wahlberg

Gravitate Quotes By Bobby Flay

Most of the time, I grill over high heat. I like things to move fast. I like the sound and smell of a very hot fire. I gravitate towards dishes that you can get on and off the grill as quickly as possible. After a while, you'll know without thinking about it how hot the fire is. — Bobby Flay

Gravitate Quotes By Blake Judd

It's easy to gravitate toward something negative as opposed to something positive, especially if you're an outsider. — Blake Judd

Gravitate Quotes By Darren Star

I think women have such rich emotional lives that they are expressive about. I also think they're funny. I like watching strong female characters, and I like writing them. I don't know if it's conscious that I gravitate towards women, but it's certainly evolved that way. — Darren Star

Gravitate Quotes By Helen Fisher

You fall in love with somebody who fits within what I call your 'love map,' an unconscious list of traits that you build in childhood as you grow up. And I also think that you gravitate to certain people, actually, with somewhat complementary brain systems. — Helen Fisher

Gravitate Quotes By Bryan Batt

I've lived in N.Y. and L.A. for many years, but I still gravitate to New Orleans - it's so unique and so European. There's nothing else like it in the country. It has its own music, its own food, its own style and its own way of life. — Bryan Batt

Gravitate Quotes By William Manchester

If Peking wasn't stopped in the peninsular war, he argued, China would be recognized as "the military colossus of the East." U.S. prestige would plummet, and the world's new nations would gravitate toward neutralism. — William Manchester

Gravitate Quotes By Allison Tolman

I do find that when I see women who flesh out the television or film world and make it look more like the world I actually live in, I gravitate towards those characters. — Allison Tolman

Gravitate Quotes By Terry Pratchett

Cats gravitate to kitchens like rocks gravitate to gravity. — Terry Pratchett

Gravitate Quotes By Tarun Shanker

Lately, in order to win you over, I've been finding myself thinking, What would Mr. Braddock do in this situation? And it took me far too long to realize what that meant: I wanted to tell you that I would not be interfering anymore. I don't pretend to understand why it is that you would want to be with him, but even someone without my superior detective skills would notice how you gravitate toward each other. — Tarun Shanker

Gravitate Quotes By Esther Hicks

Never mind what is. Imagine it the way you want it to be so that your vibration is a match to your desire. When your vibration is a match to your desire, all things in your experience will gravitate to meet that match every time — Esther Hicks

Gravitate Quotes By Liya Kebede

I tend to gravitate toward Proenza Schouler and Alexander Wang. Their designs are accessible and easy. — Liya Kebede

Gravitate Quotes By Walter Russell

Cooling bodies gravitate and heat as they gravitate-heating bodies radiate, and cool as they radiate. — Walter Russell

Gravitate Quotes By Aaron Belz

I gravitate toward the larger worldview questions such as, Why are we here? What are we supposed to be doing? What does it mean to know another person? To love someone? Of course, those questions are sort of in the background as I'm playing with language in the foreground, but those are the informing questions. — Aaron Belz

Gravitate Quotes By Donovan Bailey

I was working in corporate Canada and I was doing all right. But I was burnt out ... Long hours, a lot of clients. I just wanted to get away. Track and field was sort of like the elimination thing. I just wanted to go and do something. Exercise my brain and my body and kind of gravitate to that. — Donovan Bailey

Gravitate Quotes By James Allen

No temptation can gravitate to a man unless there is that is his heart which is capable of responding to it. — James Allen

Gravitate Quotes By Gina Greenlee

Rather than resist rest and gravitate toward constant motion, let's experiment with letting go. — Gina Greenlee

Gravitate Quotes By Jillian Rose Reed

I will say that I do gravitate more towards quirkier guys. I always date guys who wear glasses. — Jillian Rose Reed

Gravitate Quotes By Paul Di Filippo

I suspect that authors who start their careers writing for an adult audience - and who eventually produce a young adult novel or two - are more common than authors who begin by writing for young adults and who then gravitate toward composing something for an adult audience. — Paul Di Filippo

Gravitate Quotes By Peter Sarsgaard

I frequently gravitate toward characters that have some urgency or soul. — Peter Sarsgaard

Gravitate Quotes By Tom Stoppard

Responsibilities gravitate to the person who can shoulder them. — Tom Stoppard

Gravitate Quotes By Bill Paxton

You don't really get to pick and chose what you would like to be doing. But I've been very fortunate, and I think water seeks its own level. You do gravitate towards things that you would get off on. — Bill Paxton

Gravitate Quotes By John C. Maxwell

People who are not leaders automatically gravitate toward lines
limitations set by others. Many people are taught this in kindergarten when they are instructed to stay within the lines while coloring. But leaders are more creative than that. They look for options and opportunities. They try to take things in a new direction, or beyond the limit. Progress and innovation are made by people who think without lines. — John C. Maxwell

Gravitate Quotes By Chris Benz

I'm always inspired by all of my friends. I aspire to make clothes that my friends would want to wear, that they would gravitate towards anyway. — Chris Benz

Gravitate Quotes By John Podesta

There are people who kind of gravitate towards running politics based on new ideas and issues, and that was what the secret was for Clinton. — John Podesta

Gravitate Quotes By Ian Anthony Dale

A lot of the time, a moral compass is all that separates a hero from being a villain; otherwise, the two are very much the same. Both are generally the richest and most complex characters, and they get to have all the fun. I guess it's those types of roles that I ultimately gravitate towards. — Ian Anthony Dale

Gravitate Quotes By Ciara

For me, I like old-school rap music. There was a time when music was so, so rich overall, and the content of what people talked about was so deep on every level, song-for-song, pound-for-pound, and on radio, there was so much content. I gravitate more towards that type of music, to be honest. — Ciara

Gravitate Quotes By Henry David Thoreau

I delight to come to my bearings, - not walk in procession with pomp and parade, in a conspicuous place, but to walk even with the Builder of the universe, if I may, - not to live in this restless, nervous, bustling, trivial Nineteenth Century, but stand or sit thoughtfully while it goes by. What are men celebrating? They are all on a committee of arrangements, and hourly expect a speech from somebody. God is only the president of the day, and Webster is his orator. I love to weigh, to settle, to gravitate toward that which most strongly and rightfully attracts me; - not hang by the beam of the scale and try to weigh less, - not suppose a case, but take the case that is — Henry David Thoreau

Gravitate Quotes By Chris Hedges

A democratic state begins from the assumption that most of those who gravitate toward power are mediocre and probably immoral. It assumes that we must always protect ourselves from bad government. We must be prepared for the worst leaders even as we hope for the best. And as Karl Popper wrote, this understanding leads to a new approach to power, for it forces us to replace the question: Who shall rule? By the new question: How can we so organize political institutions that bad or incompetent rulers can be prevented from doing too much damage? — Chris Hedges

Gravitate Quotes By Napoleon Hill

Fortunes gravitate to men whose minds have been prepared to attract them just as surely as water gravitates to the ocean. — Napoleon Hill

Gravitate Quotes By Willem Dafoe

It makes me laugh when I hear a guy talking about being in touch with his feminine side. But I gravitate towards women; I identify with them. And I do cry very easily, more and more as I get older. — Willem Dafoe

Gravitate Quotes By Dan Brown

Religion is like language or dress. We gravitate toward the practices with which we were raised. In the end, though, we are all proclaiming the same thing. That life has meaning. That we are grateful for the power that created us. — Dan Brown
