Top Idolize Quotes

Idolize Quotes By J. Cole

In hip-hop, there's not a lot of love. There's not a lot of love being spread. It's always like 'I'm stuntin' on you raps, or I'm better than you raps.' It's not a lot of 'Yo man, I idolize you raps.' — J. Cole

Idolize Quotes By Thomas Ligotti

As we should know by now, it is as easy to make fun of religious or scientific visionaries as it is to idolize them. Which attitude is adopted depends on whether or not they tell you what you want to hear. — Thomas Ligotti

Idolize Quotes By Megan Mayhew Bergman

Mothers, I believe, intoxicate us. We idolize them and take them for granted. We hate them and blame them and exalt them more thoroughly than anyone else in our lives. We sift through the evidence of their love, reassure ourselves of their affection and its biological genesis. We can steal and lie and leave and they will love us. — Megan Mayhew Bergman

Idolize Quotes By Kate McGahan

You blast me open and then
You stand back and watch
My feeble attempts
To deal with myself.
Where do I turn
In my now desperate need for love?
You are not there.
There is no one else to turn to
For I have made you my Everything.
And in my exhaustion
From my desperate moments,
I slip into myself
And there I find God waiting for me
To love Him to love me to love you
Because you are the matchmaker.
I thought He was leading me to you
But, surprise surprise,
You were leading me to Him. — Kate McGahan

Idolize Quotes By Logan Lerman

There really isn't a dream role, but there's a dream situation where I could work with a director that I idolize. So, the idea of working with David Fincher or Paul Thomas Anderson or Wes Anderson or Scorsese or Spielberg or any of the guys I really idolize is a dream for me. — Logan Lerman

Idolize Quotes By Alexander Pushkin

Perhaps you'd like, you gentle fellow,
To hear what I'm prepared to say
On "kinfolk" and their implications?
Well, here's my view of close relations:
They're people whom we're bound to prize,
To honor, love, and idolize,
And following the old tradition,
To visit come the Christmas feast,
Or send a wish by mail at least;
All other days they've our permission,
To quite forget us if they please-
So grant them, God, long life and ease! — Alexander Pushkin

Idolize Quotes By Rene Girard

Idolize Quotes By Igor Eliseev

It always turns out this way: at first people idolize you, swear to be your faithful friend forever and then spit in your tea and in your soul, too. — Igor Eliseev

Idolize Quotes By Maggie Stiefvater

As they scuffled in the grass, Adam closed his eyes and leaned his head back. He could nearly scry just like this. The quiet and the cold breeze on his throat would take him away and the dampness of his toes in his shoes and the scent of living creatures would keep him here. Within and without. He couldn't tell if he was letting himself idolize this place or Ronan, and he wasn't sure there was a difference.
When he opened his eyes, he saw that Ronan was looking at him, as he had been looking at him for months. Adam looked back, as he had been looking back for months. — Maggie Stiefvater

Idolize Quotes By Andy Warhol

In the early days of film, fans used to idolize a whole star - they would take one star and love everything about that star ...

Idolize Quotes By Chuck Palahniuk

More and more we are taught something throughout our growing up, our education, and continuously, no matter how much we believe in this thing, something comes up that forces us to revise our entire belief system.

Idolize Quotes By Y.G. Levimor

Of all people, you, a bona fide misanthrope, have become the prophet of light and love for the masses. You manage to reach so many people, and still you're lonelier than you have ever been. You embrace the universe, and then go to sleep on your lonesome inside your four walls. You dope your audience on kitsch and nonsense about humility, and all the while you actually idolize yourself. — Y.G. Levimor

Idolize Quotes By Pete Wentz

Everyone you idolize wakes up scared to be themselves sometimes. — Pete Wentz

Idolize Quotes By John Rechy

And now, it seems, they are all here: the handsome masculine ones desired alike by men and women; the gushing swishes, hands aflutter like wings; the few stray women secure among the men who will idolize them but not love them; and as in any group of homosexuals and those lured for whatever reason to them, there is here a mood of superficial good humor, of euphoria bordering on hysteria. So — John Rechy

Idolize Quotes By Tupac Shakur

Idolize Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

I have a hard time with historians because they idolize the truth. The truth is not uplifting; it destroys. I could tell most of the secretaries in the church office building that they are ugly and fat. That would be the truth, but it would hurt and destroy them. Historians should tell only that part of the truth that is inspiring and uplifting. — Boyd K. Packer

Idolize Quotes By Maynard James Keenan

Idolize Quotes By Bill Maher

I want you teabaggers out there to understand one thing: while you idolize the Founding Fathers and dress up like them, and smell like them, I think it's pretty clear that the Founding Fathers would have hated your guts. And what's more, you would've hated them. They were everything you despise. They studied science, read Plato, hung out in Paris and thought the Bible was mostly bulls**t. — Bill Maher

Idolize Quotes By Lisa Bedrick

Pop stars AREN'T cool. Cheating on your husband or your wife isn't cool. Having no modesty with your body and no self-respect is NOT cool. It doesn't matter how pretty someone's voice is, or if they SAY they are Christian, God calls us to modesty and faithfulness, so we need to be careful to not idolize anyone that goes way off of what God wants. — Lisa Bedrick

Idolize Quotes By Stephen Richards

If you go through the biography of any famous personality you idolize you are sure to see the how the words 'I can' and 'I believe' played a very vital role in their fame. — Stephen Richards

Idolize Quotes By Kilroy J. Oldster

Reading books makes us more attentive to our personage and the aesthetic world that we live in. Writers that we idolize use language, logic, and nuance to paint physical and emotional scenes with refined precision. A writer's use of vivid language creates lingering aftereffects that work their wonder on the reader's malleable mind. A stirred mind resurrects our semiconscious memories; it causes us to summon up enduring images of our family, friends, and acquaintances. Just as importantly, inspirational writing makes us recognize our own telling character traits and identify our formerly unexpressed thoughts and feelings. — Kilroy J. Oldster

Idolize Quotes By C. JoyBell C.

My friends, don't idolize hardship. What you idolize is what your heart will look for and what your heart looks for is what you will have. And don't capitalize on misfortune, because you will always seek out to have capital! Throw away that pride! Don't put sorrow on a pedestal! If you ask me if I would rather have had my sorrows or not, I will tell you that no, I would rather have not had any of them! In the blink of an eye, I would rid myself of them! I have no pride. I don't rely on hardships and sorrows to mold me into someone. I don't allow myself to be dictated. When hardship and sorrow come knocking, saying "We are responsible for who you are today, let us in!" I'm going to say, in a split second, "No you're not! Go away, I don't owe you anything! — C. JoyBell C.

Idolize Quotes By Elbert Hubbard

If men could only know each other, they would neither idolize nor hate. — Elbert Hubbard

Idolize Quotes By Bill Dedman

Idolize Quotes By Skeet Ulrich

I've just done a movie - Albino Alligator - with Viggo Mortensen, who's an actor I idolize. He influenced me in a way that has helped me move toward getting lead parts instead of supporting parts, merely through his presence. So now I tell everyone, as a joke, that I'm entering my Viggo Mortensen phase. — Skeet Ulrich

Idolize Quotes By Kelli Berglund

I would love to work with Kristin Wiig one day. I find her hilarious, and I totally idolize her. — Kelli Berglund

Idolize Quotes By David Clarkson

That which we most desire, we worship as our god; for that which is chiefly desired is the chief good in his account, who so desires it. And what he counts his chief good, that he makes his god. Desire is an act of worship ... and to be most desired is that worship, that honor, which is due only to God. To desire anything more or so much as the enjoyment of God is to idolize it, to prostrate the heart to it, and worship it as God only should be worshipped. He only should be that one thing desirable to us above all things ... — David Clarkson

Idolize Quotes By Marquis De Lafayette

Defender of the liberty that I idolize, myself more free than anyone, in coming as a friend to offer my services to this intriguing republic, I bring to it only my frankness and my good will; no ambition, no self-interest; in working for my glory, I work for their happiness. — Marquis De Lafayette

Idolize Quotes By Mary E. DeMuth

The last player I truly idolize ... No other footballer is more worthy of the number 10 shirt than him.
(on Maradona) — Hristo Stoichkov

Idolize Quotes By Tonya Hurley

We have the whole concept of popularity backward. We imagine it as a small and exclusive club of people we idolize or envy. But most popular people are hated by the majority. So, if you are despised by everyone outside your little clique, and liked only by those inside it, you are vastly unpopular by any objective measure. The key to ultimate popularity is not to be loved or envied by as many people as possible but to be loved or envied by the right people. — Tonya Hurley

Idolize Quotes By Lady Gaga

Don't idolize me, idolize yourself. — Lady Gaga

Idolize Quotes By Elyse M. Fitzpatrick

When I neglect the gospel, I'll want nice vacations and nice compliments and nice things to make my life nicer. I'll long to be able to compare myself favorably with others and to know that I am successful. I'll look down on those who don't meet my standards, and I'll idolize those who excel. I'll forget that he is preeminent. — Elyse M. Fitzpatrick

Idolize Quotes By Andi Zeisler

American culture, perhaps more than any other, prizes individualism. Our narratives of art, politics, and business idolize the person who triumphs against the odds, with only himself or herself to answer to. The lone wolf. The stranger in town. The maverick. The plucky kid. The Final Girl. You've only got yourself, in the end. It's all up to you. — Andi Zeisler

Idolize Quotes By Cindy Sheehan

People demonize me; people idolize me; everything I say and do has been scrutinized. — Cindy Sheehan

Idolize Quotes By Aberjhani

With intent to neither idolize nor demonize the man [Barack Obama], it seems fair and evident enough to say that the current president of America is not a leader whose way is that of violent public outbursts. It appears to be more that of a warrior-philosopher who practices the art of political persuasion by authoring acclaimed books, delivering well-crafted speeches, assembling unified coalitions, passing historic legislation, signing well-aimed executive orders, and cultivating a poised but accessible demeanor. — Aberjhani

Idolize Quotes By Greg Behrendt

Don't idolize anyone if you can. You know, be inspired by people, certainly, but don't idolize people ... Because they'll let you down. — Greg Behrendt

Idolize Quotes By Marketa Irglova

The idea of celebrity has always been very strange to me because it's taking the focus away from the music and attaching it to a person. When we put someone on a pedestal or idolize them, we're giving our own power away. — Marketa Irglova

Idolize Quotes By Ace Hood

I would just encourage any artist to stay focused, of course keep God first, and just keep working hard. Try to outwork those who you idolize. — Ace Hood

Idolize Quotes By John Waters

Do we secretly idolize our imagined opposites, yearning to become the role models for others we know we could never be for ourselves? — John Waters

Idolize Quotes By Naveen Jain

Today, people idolize athletes and celebrities - and yes, highly successful and visionary business people like Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, but not the innovators who perhaps have not seen such high-flying levels of success. Can anyone name the inventors of GPS, which has such a huge impact on our lives today? — Naveen Jain

Idolize Quotes By Ferdinand Mount

We criticize, copy, patronize, idolize and insult but we never doubt that the U.S. has a unique position in the history of human hopes. — Ferdinand Mount
