Mindedness Quotes By Lewis Mumford

We have created an industrial order geared to automatism, where feeble-mindedness, native or acquired, is necessary for docile productivity in the factory; and where a pervasive neurosis is the final gift of the meaningless life that issues forth at the other end. — Lewis Mumford

Mindedness Quotes By Nathalia Crane

The very serpents bite their tails; the bees forget to sting, For a language so celestial setteth up a wondering. And the touch of absent mindedness is more than any line, Since direction counts for nothing when the gods set up a sign. — Nathalia Crane

Mindedness Quotes By Ernest Bramah

The inimitable stories of Tong-King never have any real ending, and this one, being in his most elevated style, has even less end than most of them. But the whole narrative is permeated with the odour of joss-sticks and honourable high-mindedness, and the two characters are both of noble birth. — Ernest Bramah

Mindedness Quotes By Nicholas A. McGirr

Foretold through memories I remember what dangers I was warned of if lived by ways of sinning. That by living a fruitful life with an open mind to love all people would bring me to a place of peaceful tranquility. I wonder if these are all lies. All of them. — Nicholas A. McGirr

Mindedness Quotes By George Eliot

It is a narrow mind which cannot look at a subject from various points of view. — George Eliot

Mindedness Quotes By D.H. Lawrence

My God, what a clumsy olla putrida James Joyce is! Nothing but old fags and cabbage stumps of quotations from the Bible and the rest, stewed in the juice of deliberate, journalistic dirty-mindedness - what old and hard-worked staleness, masquerading as the all-new! — D.H. Lawrence

Mindedness Quotes By Robin Jarvis

I shall not waste any more words on you," she said coldly. "Your mind is too closed to hear them. — Robin Jarvis

Mindedness Quotes By Jodi Picoult

Kids think with their brains cracked wide open; becoming an adult, I've decided, is only a slow sewing shut. — Jodi Picoult

Mindedness Quotes By Tim Kreider

When you're a child, your best friend in the world is the kid who lives next door. It doesn't occur to you then that this is a matter of arbitrary circumstance. When you grow up you like to imagine that your friendships have a more substantial basis - common interests, like-mindedness, some genuine affinity. It's always a sad revelation that when a good friend acquires a girlfriend or a husband and disappears. You realize that,for them, your friendships was always only a matter of convenience, a fallback, and they simply don't need you anymore. There's nothing especially cynical about this; people are drawn to each other because they're giving each other something they both need, and they drift apart when they aren't getting it or don't need it anymore. Friendship have natural life spans, like love affairs or favorite songs. — Tim Kreider

Mindedness Quotes By Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

when true purpose calls, double mindedness, confusion and frustration come along. — Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Mindedness Quotes By Paramahansa Yogananda

A master bestows the divine experience of cosmic consciousness when his disciple, by meditation, has strengthened his mind to a degree where the vast vistas would not overwhelm him. Mere intellectual willingness or open-mindedness is not enough. Only adequate enlargement of consciousness by yoga practice and devotional bhakti can prepare one to absorb the liberating shock of omnipresence. — Paramahansa Yogananda

Mindedness Quotes By Florence King

Any hope that America would finally grow up vanished with the rise of fundamentalist Christianity. Fundamentalism, with its born-again regression, its pink-and-gold concept of heaven, its literal-mindedness, its rambunctious good cheer ... its anti-intellectualism ... its puerile hymns ... and its faith-healing ... are made to order for King Kid America. — Florence King

Mindedness Quotes By Fatema Mernissi

I knew that if you moved around, your mind worked faster, because you were constantly seeing new things that you had to respond to. — Fatema Mernissi

Mindedness Quotes By Kilroy J. Oldster

The grandest form of delusion is misconstruing the obvious. Persons with an open, inquisitive, and intuitive mind can detect hidden clues that aggressive, narrow-minded, and impatient rationalist fail to perceive. — Kilroy J. Oldster

Mindedness Quotes By Richard Byrne Reilly

Thiel rejects the small-mindedness of most of the Valley's entrepreneurialism. The motto of Founders Fund is: "We wanted flying cars, instead we got 140 characters." But — Richard Byrne Reilly

Mindedness Quotes By Maria Semple

I suppose I could admire all these slow Seattle drivers for their safety-mindedness, consideration for others, and peace of mind. Instead, I'm a fury of annoyance. — Maria Semple

Mindedness Quotes By F Scott Fitzgerald

It never occurred to me that one man could start to play with the faith of fifty million people- with the single mindedness of a burglar blowing a safe. — F Scott Fitzgerald

Mindedness Quotes By Takuan Soho

Consider the core of the mind to be a wagon, with will-power to be carried about in it. Push it to a place where there can be failure, and there will be failure. Push it to a place where there can be success, and there will be success. But whether there is success or failure, if one entrusts himself to the straightness of this wagon of the core of the mind, he will attain right-mindedness in either case. Severing oneself from desire and being like a rock or tree, nothing will ever be achieved. Not departing from desire, but realizing a desireless right-mindedness - this is the Way. — Takuan Soho

Mindedness Quotes By C.S. Lewis

An open mind, in questions that are not ultimate, is useful. But an open mind about the ultimate foundations either of Theoretical or of Practical Reason is idiocy. If a man's mind is open on these things, let his mouth at least be shut. He can say nothing to the purpose. Outside the Tao there is no ground for criticizing either the Tao or anything else. — C.S. Lewis

Mindedness Quotes By Christopher Hitchens

The pornography of tough-mindedness, covert action, and preparedness for "peace through strength" has had a predictably hypnotic effect on the legislative branch, turning it from legal watchdog to lapdog. — Christopher Hitchens

Mindedness Quotes By Michele Jaffe

Say 'Not Yet.' It's best to leave your options open. — Michele Jaffe

Mindedness Quotes By Nyogen Senzaki

1. A Cup of Tea
Nan-in, a Japanese master during the Meiji era (1868-1912), recieved a university professor who came to inqure about Zen.
Nan-in served tea. He poured his visitor's cup full, and then kept on pouring.
The professor watched the overflow until he could no longer restrain himself. "It is overfull. No more will go in!"
"Like this cup," Nan-in said, "you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your up? — Nyogen Senzaki

Mindedness Quotes By Thomas Mann

To allow only the kind of art that the average man understands is the worst small-mindedness and the murder of mind and spirit. It is my conviction that the intellect can be certain that in doing what most disconcerts the crowd, in pursuing the most daring, unconventional advances and explorations, it will in some highly indirect fashion serve man - and in the long run, all men. — Thomas Mann

Mindedness Quotes By J. Fally

There was only one Riley Cooper and McClane wanted him, with all his perfect imperfections, the insecurity and the stubborn pride, the poor conflict-solving skills and the laid-back open-mindedness that made the man such good company for an intelligent armor and weapons system with codependency issues. — J. Fally

Mindedness Quotes By Mark Twain

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime. — Mark Twain

Mindedness Quotes By Theodore Dalrymple

Yet literal-mindedness is not honesty or fidelity to truth
far from it. For it is the whole experience of mankind that sexual life is always, and must always be, hidden by veils of varying degrees of opacity, if it is to be humanized into something beyond a mere animal function. What is inherently secretive, that is to say self-conscious and human, cannot be spoken of directly; the attempt leads only to crudity, not to truth. — Theodore Dalrymple

Mindedness Quotes By Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

All that the spider needs to complete its web is step taking — Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Mindedness Quotes By Patti Digh

Create inclusion - with simple mindfulness that others might have a different reality from your own. — Patti Digh

Mindedness Quotes By Abraham Joshua Heschel

The surest way of misunderstanding revelation is to take it literally, to imagine that God spoke to the prophet on a long-distance telephone. Yet most of us succumb to such fancy, forgetting that the cardinal sin in thinking about ultimate issues is literal-mindedness. — Abraham Joshua Heschel

Mindedness Quotes By Abdallah II

We have no right to dictate, through irresponsible action or narrow-mindedness, the future of our children, and our children's children. There has been enough destruction, enough death, enough waste. — Abdallah II

Mindedness Quotes By Neil Gaiman

To bite off your shadow is neither easy nor painless. It demands a single-mindedness that is almost unknown in this day. — Neil Gaiman

Mindedness Quotes By Martin Luther King Jr.

What is more tragic than to see a person who has risen to the disciplined heights of tough-mindedness but has at the same time sunk to the passionless depths of hard-heartedness? — Martin Luther King Jr.

Mindedness Quotes By Brent Rock Russell

Mark Twain said it well, 'Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness. — Brent Rock Russell

Mindedness Quotes By Sunday Adelaja

Don't be too stereotyped, be ready to explore new opportunities — Sunday Adelaja

Mindedness Quotes By T. R. Pearson

According to Daddy, that was a time of general lunacy in Neely, but then Daddy has always said there's nothing like a good snowfall to bring out the feeble-mindedness in people. — T. R. Pearson

Mindedness Quotes By Jocelyn Gibb

in describing the various writers of his idolatry he more than once lets fall a phrase that could equally apply to himself. 'To read Spenser,' he says, 'is to grow in mental health.' What he values in Addison is his 'open-mindedness.' The moments of despair chronicled in Scott's diary cannot, he claims, counterpoise 'that ease and good temper, that fine masculine cheerfulness' suffused through the best of the Waverly novels. Most of all it was the chiaroscuro of what Chaucer called 'earnest' and 'game' that attracted him. He found it eminently in the poetry of Dunbar, that late-medieval Scottish maker who wrote the greatest religious poetry and the earthiest satire in the language — Jocelyn Gibb

Mindedness Quotes By Jasper Fforde

Funding for the Special Operations Network comes directly from the government. Most work is centralized, but all of the SpecOps divisions have local representatives to keep a watchful eye on any provincial problems. They are administered by local commanders, who liaise with the national offices for information exchange, guidance and policy decisions. Like any other big government department, it looks good on paper but is an utter shambles. Petty infighting and political agendas, arrogance and sheer bloody-mindedness almost guarantees that the left hand doesn't know what the right is doing. — Jasper Fforde

Mindedness Quotes By Jodi Benson

I want to live outside of the box, and I definitely don't want to put God in a box, so I want to be able to dream big and kind of let that go of my small-mindedness. — Jodi Benson

Mindedness Quotes By Guy Kawasaki

Great teams are usually small-under fifty in total head count. (There are few examples of a team made up of hundreds of people who created anything revolutionary.) Big teams aren't conducive to revolutionary products because such products require a high degree of single-mindedness, unity, and unreasonable passion. — Guy Kawasaki

Mindedness Quotes By Brennan Manning

If we maintain the open-mindedness of children, we challenge fixed ideas and established structures, including our own. We listen to people in other denominations and religions. We don't find demons in those with whom we disagree. We don't cozy up to people who mouth our jargon. If we are open, we rarely resort to either-or: either creation or evolution, liberty or law, sacred or secular, Beethoven or Madonna. We focus on both-and, fully aware that God's truth cannot be imprisoned in a small definition. — Brennan Manning

Mindedness Quotes By Richard Rorty

Open-mindedness should not be fostered because, as Scripture teaches, Truth is great and will prevail, nor because, as Milton suggests, Truth will always win in a free and open encounter. It should be fostered for its own sake. — Richard Rorty

Mindedness Quotes By Laurence Overmire

Live with an open mind and an open heart. Always choose love over fear and kindness over cruelty. — Laurence Overmire

Mindedness Quotes By Sheri S. Tepper

Nothing limits intelligence more than ignorance; nothing fosters ignorance more than one's own opinions; nothing strengthens opinions more than refusing to look at reality. — Sheri S. Tepper

Mindedness Quotes By Elizabeth Gilbert

Culturally, though not theologically, I'm a Christian. I was born a Protestant of the white Anglo-Saxon persuasion. And while I do love that great teacher of peace who was called Jesus, and while I do reserve the right to ask myself in certain trying situations what indeed He would do, I can't swallow that one fixed rule of Christianity insisting that Christ is the only path to God. Strictly speaking, then, I cannot call myself a Christian. Most of the Christians I know accept my feelings on this with grace and open-mindedness. Then again, most of the Christians I know don't speak very strictly. To those who do speak (and think) strictly, all I can do here is offer my regrets for any hurt feelings and now excuse myself from their business. — Elizabeth Gilbert

Mindedness Quotes By Paul Graham

Who thinks they're not open-minded? Our hypothetical prim miss from the suburbs thinks she's open-minded. Hasn't she been taught to be? Ask anyone, and they'll say the same thing: they're pretty open-minded, though they draw the line at things that are really wrong. (Some tribes may avoid "wrong" as judgemental, and may instead use a more neutral sounding euphemism like "negative" or "destructive".)

When people are bad at math, they know it, because they get the wrong answers on tests. But when people are bad at open-mindedness they don't know it. In fact they tend to think the opposite. — Paul Graham

Mindedness Quotes By Adriano Bulla

When one opens a book, one should also open one's mind. — Adriano Bulla

Mindedness Quotes By Alice Bag

I don't think I have rebelled against Latina culture. I have rebelled against those who try to make me warm tortillas for my brothers when they can warm them for themselves, I have rebelled against a patriarchal religion. I rebel against small mindedness in all ways and in every situation but those things are not an intrinsic part of Latina culture and I will fight tooth and nail against anyone who tries to make me feel like I'm less Xicana for not embracing the small-mindedness. — Alice Bag

Mindedness Quotes By David Harewood

You have to have a certain single-mindedness if you want to reach the top of the profession, and I'm not sure if I've got that cold-eyed egomania that perhaps is needed to get to the top. So as long as I can keep paying the mortgage and keep myself interested, I'll be happy. — David Harewood

Mindedness Quotes By Ezra Koenig

All I know for sure is that issues like race, like class, are always best approached with compassion and open-mindedness. — Ezra Koenig

Mindedness Quotes By Sarah Shun-lien Bynum

How terrible it is to recognize that one's brilliance rests solely upon the small-mindedness of others. — Sarah Shun-lien Bynum

Mindedness Quotes By Betty Eadie

When I awaken in the morning, I am thankful for a new day. I am thankful for everything that I have materially. I am thankful for everything I have spiritually. I thank God for allowing me to experience these things, even the experiences that may not seem so positive, such as developing an illness. I may not understand why I have the illness, but I sense that it is there for a purpose, and so I thank God for it. I ask Him to allow me to expand beyond my narrow-mindedness and self-centeredness so that I can see the good that comes from everything. — Betty Eadie

Mindedness Quotes By Peter Kreeft

An open mind is not an end in itself but a means to the end of finding truth. — Peter Kreeft

Mindedness Quotes By Idries Shah

Salute to the Thief. Junaid of Baghdad was passing the scene of a public hanging, where a thief was on the scaffold. Junaid bowed towards the criminal. Someone asked him: 'What did you do that?' Junaid said: 'I was bowing before his single-mindedness. For his aim, that man has given his life. — Idries Shah

Mindedness Quotes By Henry David Thoreau

It is never too late to give up your prejudices — Henry David Thoreau

Mindedness Quotes By Joyce Rachelle

What advantage has the person who will not listen over the one who cannot hear? — Joyce Rachelle

Mindedness Quotes By Criss Jami

I would rather have strong enemies than a world of passive individualists. In a world of passive individualists nothing seems worth anything simply because nobody stands for anything. That world has no convictions, no victories, no unions, no heroism, no absolutes, no heartbeat. That world has rigor mortis. — Criss Jami

Mindedness Quotes By Hyman G. Rickover

Sit down before fact with an open mind. Be prepared to give up every preconceived notion. Follow humbly wherever and to whatever abyss Nature leads or you learn nothing. Don't push out figures when facts are going in the opposite direction. — Hyman G. Rickover

Mindedness Quotes By Anonymous

But what if absolute consistency on any issue from the left or the right, religious or secular, is an indication of mediocre intelligence and a lack of intellectual honesty? What if the world is a complex place? What if leadership requires flexibility? What if ideology is a bad substitute for common sense? What if ideological consistency, let alone "purity," is a sign of small-mindedness, maybe even stupidity? — Anonymous

Mindedness Quotes By Alija Izetbegovic

Modern man's narrow-mindedness is best shown in his belief that there is no riddle before him. His wisdom is the sum of his knowledge and his ignorance, of which he is not aware, he accepts it as knowledge. Even in the face of the greatest mystery, he behaves self-consciously and conceitedly. He does not even see the problem. It is in this that the true measure of his ignorance and prejudice is manifested. — Alija Izetbegovic

Mindedness Quotes By Ronald A. Heifetz

Stay diagnostic even as you take action. — Ronald A. Heifetz

Mindedness Quotes By Steve Maraboli

I don't think haters are small-minded; it's more tragic than that. I think they're great minded, but choose to sell themselves short every day. — Steve Maraboli

Mindedness Quotes By Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel

The obsession with moderation is the spirit of castrated narrow-mindedness. — Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel

Mindedness Quotes By Joseph Joubert

Few minds are spacious; few even have an empty place in them or can offer some vacant point. Almost all have narrow capacities and are filled by some knowledge that blocks them up. What a torture to talk to filled heads, that allow nothing from the outside to enter them! A good mind, in order to enjoy itself and allow itself to enjoy others, always keeps itself larger than its own thoughts. And in order to do this, these thoughts must be given a pliant form, must be easily folded and unfolded, so that they are capable, finally, of maintaining a natural flexibility.
All those short-sighted minds see clearly within their little ideas and see nothing in those of others; they are like those bad eyes that see from close range what is obscure and cannot perceive what is clear from afar. Night minds, minds of darkness. — Joseph Joubert

Mindedness Quotes By Brooks Atkinson

The most fatal illusion is the settled point of view. Since life is growth and motion, a fixed point of view kills anybody who has one. — Brooks Atkinson

Mindedness Quotes By Toba Beta

True love doesn't spoil. — Toba Beta

Mindedness Quotes By Julia Cameron

Today, I deliberately practice open-mindedness. I cultivate a willingness to experience subtle realms. — Julia Cameron

Mindedness Quotes By Jessica Livingston

Etermination is the most important quality in a founder, open-mindedness and willingness to change your idea are key, and all startups face rejection at first. — Jessica Livingston

Mindedness Quotes By Charles Darwin

Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science. — Charles Darwin

Mindedness Quotes By David Halberstam

Elliston thought consistency less important than vitality and intelligence and passion. — David Halberstam

Mindedness Quotes By Philip Pullman

People should decide on the books' meanings for themselves. They'll find a story that attacks such things as cruelty, oppression, intolerance, unkindness, narrow-mindedness, and celebrates love, kindness, open-mindedness, tolerance, curiosity, human intelligence. — Philip Pullman

Mindedness Quotes By Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Strive, while improving your one talent, to enrich your whole capital as a man. It is in this way that you escape from the wretched narrow-mindedness which is the characteristic of every one who cultivates his specialty alone. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Mindedness Quotes By Frank Sonnenberg

If someone chooses to live a certain way, and it doesn't infringe on anyone's freedom, it's their choice to make. — Frank Sonnenberg

Mindedness Quotes By Philip Pullman

I'm for open-mindedness and tolerance. I'm against any form of fanaticism, fundamentalism or zealotry, and this certainty of 'We have the truth.' The truth is far too large and complex. Nobody has the truth. — Philip Pullman

Mindedness Quotes By Scott Watson

To start blindly with a statement is a sign of arrogance and narrow-mindedness, and will lead to conflict. To start blindly with a question is a sign of uncertainty and honesty, and will lead to wisdom. — Scott Watson

Mindedness Quotes By Moonshine Noire

...few truly understood how disheartening it was to be cut off from worlds so strange and distant they remained to us fantasies rather than distant realities, too surreal and foreign to be touched. Their minds were fixated on what they knew to be real, unable to create the atmospheres of the nebulous realms that lay just beyond our reach, just beyond the dimming horizon, our celestial limits. — Moonshine Noire

Mindedness Quotes By Simon Sebag Montefiore

Party-mindedness" was "an almost mystical concept," explained Kopelev. "The indispensable prerequisites were iron discipline and faithful observance of all the rituals of Party life." As one veteran Communist put it, a Bolshevik was not someone who believed merely in Marxism but "someone who had absolute faith in the Party no matter what . . . A person with the ability to adapt his morality and conscience in such a way that he can unreservedly accept the dogma that the Party is never wrong - even though it's wrong all the time." Stalin did not exaggerate when he boasted: "We Bolsheviks are people of a special cut."2 Nadya — Simon Sebag Montefiore

Mindedness Quotes By Frank Sonnenberg

No one has the right to force his or her way of life on anyone else. — Frank Sonnenberg

Mindedness Quotes By Francine Prose

He claimed to be a Marxist, the only one of his claims I believed. He had that Marxist passion for oysters and good Sancerre, and that Marxist paralysis when the waiter brought the check. Already it's obvious how much the Communists got wrong, overbetting on human high-mindedness, lowballing human desire. — Francine Prose

Mindedness Quotes By Greg Saunier

What most people call "chaos" is actually incredibly predictable and maddeningly boring - greed, close-mindedness, warring over power. — Greg Saunier

Mindedness Quotes By Billy Graham

Double-mindedness means the faculty of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind and accepting both of them. We talk out of both corners of our mouths at once. — Billy Graham

Mindedness Quotes By Stephen Breyer

Open mindedness is not blank mindedness, open mindedness is being prepared to change your view when presented with a better set of proofs and arguments. — Stephen Breyer

Mindedness Quotes By Elizabeth Von Arnim

There was that in the atmosphere of San Salvatore which produced active-mindedness in all except the natives. They, as before, whatever the beauty around them, whatever the prodigal seasons did, remained immune from thoughts other than those they were accustomed to. All their lives they had seen, year by year, the amazing recurrent spectacle of April in the gardens, and custom had made it invisible to them. They were as blind to it, as unconscious of it, as Domenico's dog asleep in the sun. The visitors could not be blind to it - it was too arresting after London in a particularly wet and gloomy March. Suddenly to be transported to that place where the air was so still that it held its breath, where the light was so golden that the most ordinary things were transfigured - to be transported into that delicate warmth, — Elizabeth Von Arnim

Mindedness Quotes By Eric Ludy

I actually do propose open-mindedness, but open-mindedness to the Word of God. — Eric Ludy

Mindedness Quotes By Lauren Lola

...sometimes when you are lost for direction, you are open to a new way of seeing. — Lauren Lola

Mindedness Quotes By Jawaharlal Nehru

We can't encourage narrow mindedness, for no nation can be great whose people are narrow in thought. — Jawaharlal Nehru

Mindedness Quotes By Lisa Cypers Kamen

Open your eyes
Open your ears
Open your mind
Open your heart
They are your portals to joy — Lisa Cypers Kamen

Mindedness Quotes By Yusuf Al-Qaradawi

Disagreement based on LEGITIMATE IJTIHAD which does not create DISCORD or DISUNITY is a BLESSING for the UMMAH and an enrichment of ISLAMIC JURISPRUDENCE. Objective disagreement in itself poses no threat if it is coupled with TOLERANCE and is free of FANATICISM, ACCUSATIONS, and NARROW-MINDEDNESS. — Yusuf Al-Qaradawi

Mindedness Quotes By Stanislaw Lem

Man has gone out to explore other worlds and other civilizations without having explored his own labyrinth of dark passages and secret chambers, and without finding what lies behind doorways that he himself has sealed. — Stanislaw Lem

Mindedness Quotes By Ralph Waldo Emerson

The sky is the daily bread of the eyes. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Mindedness Quotes By Confucius

Love of goodness without love of learning degenerates into simple-mindedness. Love of knowledge without love of learning degenerates into utter lack of principle. Love of faithfulness without love of learning degenerates into injurious disregard of consequences. Love of uprightness without love of learning degenerates into harshness. Love of courage without love of learning degenerates into insubordination. Love of strong character without love of learning degenerates into mere recklessness. — Confucius

Mindedness Quotes By Timothy Leary

Throughout human history, as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are, or where we are going in this ocean of chaos, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open-mindedness; chaotic, confused, vulnerability to inform yourself. — Timothy Leary

Mindedness Quotes By Frank Zappa

A mind is like a parachute. It doesn't work if it is not open. — Frank Zappa

Mindedness Quotes By Joseph Smith Jr.

We ought at all times to be very careful that high-mindedness shall never have place in our hearts. — Joseph Smith Jr.

Mindedness Quotes By Jon Katz

Whenever I hear people clucking about the decline of civilization, what's wrong with young people, how vulgar popular culture is, how confusing and frightening they find the internet, alarms go off. I know I'm around somebody whose hinges are rusting. Death will be bad enough, but for me, this early harbinger is more fearsome, because a part of one's spirit and openness and ability to learn and grow disappears. — Jon Katz

Mindedness Quotes By Ashly Lorenzana

Some people like living in black and white worlds. Let them stay there. Appreciate all the colors you see in your world though. — Ashly Lorenzana

Mindedness Quotes By M. Basil Pennington

Martin Buber as described for basic virtues cultivated by the Hasidim to overcome the separation of the sacred and secular. . . . St. Benedict spoke of them as truly seeking God, zeal for a humble way of life, zeal for obedience, and zeal for the opus of God. Buber catalogues them as kavana (single-mindedness), shiflut (humility), avada (service), and hitlahavut (fire of ecstasy). 129 — M. Basil Pennington

Mindedness Quotes By Michael Ben Zehabe

Jonah can't see how Assyria could serve any useful purpose. How could this commission better Israel? Jonah might even fear that God will reverse His judgment against Nineveh. If that 'unchanging God' changes His mind about Nineveh's destruction, then Jonah's personal religion won't make sense. (Nu 23:19) The truth is, Jonah is not as overwhelmed by his new assignment as he is by his own small mindedness. (page 5) — Michael Ben Zehabe

Mindedness Quotes By Edna Ferber

That just goes to show, remarked Pearlie, that you must never judge a woman in a kimono or a bathing suit. — Edna Ferber

Mindedness Quotes By Marianne Williamson

The resurrection is our awakening from the dream, our return to right-mindedness, and thus our deliverance from hell ... We recognized how avidly we drill the nails into our own hands and feet holding on to earthly interpretation of things when a choice to do otherwise would release us and make us happy. — Marianne Williamson

Mindedness Quotes By Hippocrates

Men ought to know that from the brain and from the brain only arise our pleasures, joys, laughter, and jests as well as our sorrows, pains, griefs and tears ... It is the same thing which makes us mad or delirious, inspires us with dread and fear, whether by night or by day, brings us sleeplessness, inopportune mistakes, aimless anxieties, absent-mindedness and acts that are contrary to habit ... — Hippocrates
