Limited Perspective Quotes By Frank Herbert

This is the perspective which you create with your own belief, and beliefs can be manipulated by imagination. You've learned only a limited way of looking at the universe. Now you must make the universe your own creation. — Frank Herbert

Limited Perspective Quotes By Arlene J. Chai

The vision one holds of one's life is so limited, reduced in scope to a moment, so that each person can make choices only within that narrowed reality. — Arlene J. Chai

Limited Perspective Quotes By C. Nzingha Smith

Sometimes it takes asking others for input to find out you have to ultimately look within yourself for the answers to the questions only you know the truth about ... we choose the information we share. So, the person giving feedback is limited in view and their perspective will only keep your view of the situation distorted. — C. Nzingha Smith

Limited Perspective Quotes By Lily King

She said no one had more than one perspective, not even in his so-called hard sciences. We're always, in everything we do in this world, she said, limited by subjectivity. But our perspective can have an enormous wingspan, if we give it the freedom to unfurl. Look at Malinowski, she said. Look at Boas. They defined their cultures as they saw them, as they understood the natives' point of view. The key is, she said, to disengage yourself from all your ideas about what is "natural." 'Even if I manage that, the next person who comes here will tell a different story about the Kiona.' 'No doubt.' 'Then what is the point?' I said. 'This is no different from the laboratory. What's the point of anyone's search for answers? The truth you find will always be replaced by someone else's. Someday even Darwin will look like a quaint Ptolemy who saw what he could see but no more. — Lily King

Limited Perspective Quotes By Haruki Murakami

As a whole, humanity doesn't lend itself to generalizations. But as I see it, there are two types of people: the comprehensive-vision type and the limited-perspective type. Me, I seem to be the latter. Not that I ever had much problem justifying my limits. A person has to draw lines somewhere. — Haruki Murakami

Limited Perspective Quotes By Joseph B. Wirthlin

Seeing life from an eternal perspective helps us focus our limited mortal energies on the things that matter most. — Joseph B. Wirthlin

Limited Perspective Quotes By George Smoot

But every day I go to work I'm making a bet that the universe is simple, symmetric, and aesthetically pleasing - a universe that we humans, with our limited perspective, will someday understand. — George Smoot

Limited Perspective Quotes By Peter Pearson

By employing classical concepts of idealized beauty and changes in perspective, icons speak to us of reality transformed and transfigured, both in and through God's presence. They speak of transcendence and mystery. As iconographers, we point to a reality that we have never seen with our own eyes. In fact, all our images of God, heaven, the angels, and the saints, whether in poetry, prose, ritual, music, or icons, represent our limited attempts to speak of the unspeakable. — Peter Pearson

Limited Perspective Quotes By Maurice Merleau Ponty

The perception of other people and the intersubjective world is problematic only for adults. The child lives in a world which he unhesitatingly believes accessible to all around him. He has no awares of himself or of others as private subjectives, nor does he suspect that all of us, himself included, are limited to one certain point of view of the world. That is why he subjects neither his thoughts, in which he believes as they present themselves, to any sort of criticism. He has no knowledge of points of view. For him men are empty heads turned towards one single, self-evident world where everything takes place, even dreams, which are, he thinks, in his room, and even thinking, since it is not distinct from words. — Maurice Merleau Ponty

Limited Perspective Quotes By Brian L. Weiss

To see and appreciate the soul of others with whom you are in a relationship is a higher state of awareness. To see only their outer characteristics provides a limited and incomplete perspective. Their current personality, just like their current physical body, is a temporary manifestation. They have had many bodies and many personalities but only one enduring soul, only one continuous spiritual essence. See this essence and you will see the real person. — Brian L. Weiss

Limited Perspective Quotes By Thich Nhat Hanh

The greatest miracle is to be alive. We can put an end to our suffering just by realizing that our suffering is not worth suffering for! How many people kill themselves because of rage or despair? In that moment, they do not see the vast happiness that is available. Mindfulness puts an end to such a limited perspective. The Buddha faced his own suffering directly and discovered the path of liberation. Don't run away from things that are unpleasant in order to embrace things that are pleasant. Put your hands in the earth. Face the difficulties and grow new happiness. — Thich Nhat Hanh

Limited Perspective Quotes By Carl Sagan

If we're stuck on one world, we're limited to a single case; we don't know what else is possible. Then - like an art fancier familiar only with Fayoum tomb paintings, a dentist who knows only molars, a philosopher trained merely in NeoPlatonism, a linguist who has studied only Chinese, or a physicist whose knowledge of gravity is restricted to falling bodies on Earth - our perspective is foreshortened, our insights narrow, our predictive abilities circumscribed. By contrast, when we explore other worlds, what once seemed the only way a planet could be turns out to be somewhere in the middle range of a vast spectrum of possibilities. When we look at those other worlds, we begin to understand what happens when we have too much of one thing or too little of another. We learn how a planet can go wrong. — Carl Sagan

Limited Perspective Quotes By Cioran

The more goods we acquire in the temporal realm, the more intense our external work, the less accessible and farther removed is eternity. Hence the limited perspective of active and energetic people, the banality of their thought and actions. — Cioran

Limited Perspective Quotes By Sydney Banks

In every area of life everyone is capable of seeing from a higher perspective than they do now.
You are never stuck. You're simply limited by the level you are seeing from.

Limitation is always illustion. Just wait. Relax. Stay still. Wait until the wisdom talks to you, as it will. - Syd Banks — Sydney Banks

Limited Perspective Quotes By Connie Sobczak

Your body talks to you in sensations; feelings of tension, fear, hunger, pleasure, aliveness, and pain are just some of the ways it attempts to communicate with you. This is why staying connected to your physical self - with as little conflict as possible - is fundamental to health and wellbeing. If you spend copious amounts of energy attempting to diminish your body, or if your imagination is limited such that you cannot see beauty in yourself, then you become disconnected from the world around you. You lose perspective and purpose. — Connie Sobczak

Limited Perspective Quotes By T.D. Jakes

The critic is a prisoner to his own experiences and perspectives, erroneously believing his limited experiences are the sum of all truth — T.D. Jakes

Limited Perspective Quotes By Madhur Bhandarkar

Indian cinema is no more limited to audiences in India. We have viewers all around the world, and hence, understanding the global perspective is a must. Cinema Beyond Boundaries would get the viewers and the filmmakers together and would help us in serving them with good quality cinema. — Madhur Bhandarkar

Limited Perspective Quotes By Henry Kissinger

In recent years, as personal memories have faded, another perspective is beginning to make a tentative appearance in China. This view acknowledges the colossal wrongs committed during the Cultural Revolution, but it begins to inquire whether perhaps Mao raised an important question, even if his answer to it proved disastrous. The problem Mao is said to have identified is the relationship of the modern state - especially the Communist state - to the people it governs. In largely agricultural - and even incipient industrial - societies, governance concerns issues within the capacity of the general public to understand. Of course, in aristocratic societies, the relevant public is limited. But whatever the formal legitimacy, some tacit consensus by those who are to carry out directives is needed - unless governance is to be entirely by imposition, which is usually unsustainable over a historic period. — Henry Kissinger

Limited Perspective Quotes By Slavoj Zizek

Here is an old phrase I like: "The only way to the universal good is that we all become strangers to ourselves." You imagine looking at yourself with a foreign gaze, through foreign eyes. I think this is something that could be the greatest thing in humanity. You are never really limited just to your own perspective. I don't like the false identity politics of multiculturalism which says that "you are enclosed in your culture." No, we have all this amazing capacity to be surprised, not by others, but by ourselves seeing how what we are doing is strange. — Slavoj Zizek

Limited Perspective Quotes By Rob Bell

This is because conviction and humility, like faith and doubt, are not opposites; they're dance partners. It's possible to hold your faith with open hands, living with great conviction and yet at the same time humbly admitting that your knowledge and perspective will always be limited. — Rob Bell

Limited Perspective Quotes By Robert S. Jepson Jr.

All that happens in our lives which we find painful, physically or emotionally, is for a purpose. Unfortunately, from our very limited perspective it is often not possible to see the good in it. The divine plan is not available to our eyes. — Robert S. Jepson Jr.

Limited Perspective Quotes By A.E. Samaan

Some that read this book will find its Libertarian and Constitutionalist slant a bit obtuse and maybe even off-putting. This author makes no apologies for viewing the history of the eugenics movement from this political perspective. It is the ethical and legal underpinnings of the American Revolution that remain as a guiding light while the eugenics movement continues to reemerge long after its alleged demise. Limited, or rather minimal government, goes a long way to curtail the disconnect that emerges when government grows so large that it no longer feels compelled to heed to the dictates of the governed. — A.E. Samaan

Limited Perspective Quotes By Pema Chodron

Seeing when you justify yourself and when you blame others is not a reason to criticize yourself, but actually an opportunity to recognize what all people do and how it imprisons us in a very limited perspective of this world. — Pema Chodron

Limited Perspective Quotes By Lionel Suggs

I live in a world where people are guided by limited imagination; only facts that are favorable to them are truths. They are unable to live anyway else. When a person finds out that a fact is against them, it's usually because it's the truth. No one tries to step outside of the edge of reason. No one tries to step beyond the edge of the world. — Lionel Suggs

Limited Perspective Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

If I see only my bias, I have surrendered to a single myopic lens through which to view the world. If I dare to surrender my bias, I will spend the rest of my life seeing the world and throwing away lenses. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Limited Perspective Quotes By Jamie Larbi

It may seem like it would take years to see your dreams fulfilled, but when you see things from God's perspective, you realize that He is not limited by time; He can do a lot in a split second of time. — Jamie Larbi

Limited Perspective Quotes By Siri Hustvedt

Each person does see the world in a different way. There is not a single, unifying, objective truth. We're all limited by our perspective. — Siri Hustvedt

Limited Perspective Quotes By Moby

I remind myself that the universe is 15 billion years old, and I'm only 46 years old, so my perspective is sort of limited and fear-based and skewed. — Moby

Limited Perspective Quotes By Neale Donald Walsch

The mind and the soul must work together if you are to experience true bliss. Try not to spend too much time exclusively in your mind. It is a magnificent tool, but it has a limited perspective. — Neale Donald Walsch

Limited Perspective Quotes By Bruce H. Lipton

Your perspective is always limited by how much you know. Expand your knowledge and you will transform your mind. — Bruce H. Lipton

Limited Perspective Quotes By Anonymous

The most important thing I learned on productivity is this Alan Kay quote: Perspective is worth 80 IQ points. You could be the most productive person in the world, but it won't make the slightest bit of difference if you're pointing your talents in a direction that isn't useful to other people. If you're talented, your gift is precious and your time is limited. Learn how to direct your talents, it will be the most important thing you do. — Anonymous

Limited Perspective Quotes By Warren W. Wiersbe

The only people who really think they have seen something new are those whose experience is limited or whose vision can't penetrate beneath the surface of things. Because something is recent, they think it is new; they mistake now the for originality. — Warren W. Wiersbe

Limited Perspective Quotes By Eckhart Tolle

The sun never sets. It is only an appearance due to the observer's limited perspective. And yet, what a sublime illusion it is. — Eckhart Tolle

Limited Perspective Quotes By Quentin Tarantino

When I'm writing in my bedroom, in a bar, at my kitchen table or wherever, I'm conjuring it all up on the page. That's all well and good, but it is going to be a limited perspective at that point and time. Occasionally, what I write might read really well initially, but then you change your mind while hunting for locations when you discover settings which offer even better opportunities for drama or dramatic staging. — Quentin Tarantino

Limited Perspective Quotes By Philip Roth

Mr. Levov was one of those slum-reared Jewish fathers whose rough-hewn, undereducated perspective goaded a whole generation of striving, college-educated Jewish sons: a father for whom everything is an unshakable duty, for whom there is a right way and wrong way and nothing in between, a father whose compound of ambitions, biases, and beliefs is so unruffled by careful thinking that he isn't as easy to escape from as he seems. Limited men with limitless energy; men quick to be friendly and quick to be fed up; men for whom the most serious thing in life is to keep going despite everything. And we were there sons. It was our job to love them. — Philip Roth

Limited Perspective Quotes By Usama Fayyad

Human beings, from a mathematical perspective, are fairly limited. Two and three dimensions, maybe five, and we're OK. — Usama Fayyad

Limited Perspective Quotes By Shelley Hamlin

That is the beauty of cancer, it tells you that your days are limited, that you could die at any point. It is that perspective that allows you to live a better life while you're here. — Shelley Hamlin

Limited Perspective Quotes By Gary Hopkins

Allowing attachments to people/things create a compulsive addiction in us to be controlling. This "control" (fueled by fear of loss) fools us into a false sense of security and love. At first glance, it is common to confuse the idea of Conscious Detachment with non-feeling or being cold, however learning this skill is a giant leap towards enlightenment. When you consciously detach from an object or a loved one, you empower them to exist at their potential. From this perspective, just being in their presence fosters feelings of love and admiration that far exceed any relationship that is limited with expectations, confinement and control — Gary Hopkins

Limited Perspective Quotes By Brian K. Vaughan

Your moon is always full, android. You Earthlings have such limited perspective. — Brian K. Vaughan

Limited Perspective Quotes By John Lewis Gaddis

I expressed skepticism, in the first chapter, about the utility of time machines in historical research. I especially advised against graduate students relying on them, because of the limited perspective you tend to get from being plunked down in some particular part of the past, and the danger of not getting back in time for your orals. — John Lewis Gaddis

Limited Perspective Quotes By Agatha Christie

He has neither what I call the outward vision (seeing details all around you what is called an observant person) nor the inner vision
concentration, the focusing of the mind on one object. He has a purposefully limited vision. He sees only what blends and harmonises with the bent of his mind. — Agatha Christie

Limited Perspective Quotes By Benjamin Franklin

Our limited perspective, our hopes and fears become our measure of life, and when circumstances don't fit our ideas, they become our difficulties. — Benjamin Franklin
