Top Most Uninspiring Quotes

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Anonymous

1. The lecture notes that mission statements can be mundane, uninspiring, routine, and forgotten. They can also be nonexistent. Do you have a mission statement, an articulation of your purpose in life? If not, craft one now. If so, ask honestly, as Mintzberg suggests we do, whether it inspires you. — Anonymous

Most Uninspiring Quotes By David Pearce

A lot of people recoil from the word "drugs" - which is understandable given today's noxious street drugs and their uninspiring medical counterparts. Yet even academics and intellectuals in our society typically take the prototypical dumb drug, ethyl alcohol. If it's socially acceptable to take a drug that makes you temporarily happy and stupid, then why not rationally design drugs to make people perpetually happier and smarter? Presumably, in order to limit abuse-potential, one would want any ideal pleasure drug to be akin - in one limited but important sense - to nicotine, where the smoker's brain finely calibrates its optimal level: there is no uncontrolled dose-escalation. — David Pearce

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Marya Mannes

A musical audience is at best uninspiring, at worst definitely drab ... Respectability hangs like a pall over the orchestra and the boxes; a sort of sterile sobriety ill-fitted to the passionate geometry of music. — Marya Mannes

Most Uninspiring Quotes By D.T. Suzuki

The truth of Zen, just a little bit of it, is what turns one's humdrum life, a life of monotonous, uninspiring commonplaceness, into one of art, full of genuine inner creativity. — D.T. Suzuki

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Wayne W. Dyer

In fact, some people who rate very high marks on the ego-based indexes of success are the ones I find most difficult to be around - and totally uninspiring — Wayne W. Dyer

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Rakesh V. Vohra

The Cubs are a major league baseball team based in Chicago. Apparently, the team was once cursed by a goat and is doomed now to never win the World Series. The 71 seats [auctioned by the Chicago Board of Exchange] are adjacent to the Cubs' dugout on the third-base line. This is an unnecessary detail needed to give color to what would otherwise be a dull and uninspiring narrative. — Rakesh V. Vohra

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Henry Cabot Lodge Jr.

The fact that the talk may be boring or turgid or uninspiring should not cause us to forget the fact that it is preferable to war. — Henry Cabot Lodge Jr.

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Nobuko Takagi

He realized with a start that something was about to begin. It might be something dull and uninspiring, something he had experienced countless times before, something that wouldn't make a lick of difference when he died. But it was always good to have something about to begin. — Nobuko Takagi

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Hugh MacLeod

Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the 'creative bug' is just a wee voice telling you, 'I'd like my crayons back, please. — Hugh MacLeod

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Chris Murray

Success would be
a fairly boring and uninspiring dish if anybody could create it with
a single ingredient, however difficult that ingredient was to find. No,
success has several layers to its pallet. This is just the beginning — Chris Murray

Most Uninspiring Quotes By H.L. Mencken

One is conscious of no brave and noble earnestness in it, of no generalized passion for intellectual and spiritual adventure, of no organized determination to think things out. What is there is a highly self-conscious and insipid correctness, a bloodless respectability submergence of matter in manner
in brief, what is there is the feeble, uninspiring quality of German painting and English music. — H.L. Mencken

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha

Be careful how you live your life, millions are watching you. You may be inspiring or uninspiring many. — Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Ayn Rand

Hence the sterile, uninspiring futility of a great many theoretical discussions of ethics, and the resentment which many people feel towards such discussions: moral principles remain in their minds as floating abstractions, offering them a goal they cannot grasp and demanding that they reshape their souls in its image, thus leaving them with a burden of undefinable moral guilt. — Ayn Rand

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Arthur Smith

An uninspiring canvas becomes a glamorous masterpiece when it is reattributed to a better-known artist. — Arthur Smith

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Jim Gaffigan

I guess the reasons against having more children always seem uninspiring and superficial. What exactly am I missing out on? Money? A few more hours of sleep? A more peaceful meal? More hair? These are nothing compared to what I get from these five monsters who rule my life. I believe each of my five children has made me a better man. So I figure I only need another thirty-four kids to be a pretty decent guy. Each one of them has been a pump of light into my shriveled black heart. I would trade money, sleep, or hair for a smile from one of my children in a heartbeat. — Jim Gaffigan

Most Uninspiring Quotes By George V

I may be uninspiring, but I'll be damned if I'm alien. — George V

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Michael Cisco

Anyone could say that a miracle is something impossible, but they say it thoughtlessly, mindlessly, because most people have such weak imaginations they couldn't possibly understand what they're saying when they say that a miracle is something impossible. Ask anyone what that means, what it means to see a miracle, and they will say that it's something impossible, but they mean that a miracle is something formerly believed to be impossible that turns out not to be, not to be impossible, in other words, but possible after all. If this were really true, then miracles would be the most ordinary things in the world, the most uninspiring things in the world, and what can one expect from people who have never been anything but ordinary and uninspired. — Michael Cisco

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Manuel Puig

I'm not terribly happy about rock and roll. Certain rock music is uninspiring, numbing; it makes you feel like an idiot. — Manuel Puig

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Aldous Huxley

The amelioration of the world cannot be achieved by sacrifices in moments of crisis; it depends on the efforts made and constantly repeated during the humdrum, uninspiring periods, which separate one crisis from another, and of which normal lives mainly consist. — Aldous Huxley

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Mahatma Gandhi

About the same time I came in contact with another Christian family. At their suggestion I attended the Wesleyan church every Sunday. For these days I also had their standing invitation to dinner. The church did not make a favourable impression on me. The sermons seemed to be uninspiring. The congregation did not strike me as being particularly religious. They were not an assembly of devout souls; they appeared rather to be wordly-minded people, going to church for recreation and in conformity to custom. Here, at times, I would involuntarily doze. I was ashamed, but some of my neighbours, who were in no better case, lightened the shame. I could not go on long like this, and soon gave up attending the service. — Mahatma Gandhi

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Liberty Hyde Bailey

Is there any progress in horticulture? If not, it is dead, uninspiring. We cannot live in the past good as it is; we must draw our inspiration from the future. — Liberty Hyde Bailey

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Inga Muscio

In school we learn that one of the best survival strategies is being part of a clique . With our friends, we create a little, tiny world with codes for conduct, morality, dress, communication, ethnicity and sexuality. We then learn to judge everyone else who is not part of our little world by the standards that are acceptable to us. This is called "divide and conquer," and happens to be exactly how male, white patriarchal society operates. When you choose not to see how you, yourself, perpetuate this social model, your world assuredly becomes-or remains-small, "safe," persnickety, judgmental and uninspiring. — Inga Muscio

Most Uninspiring Quotes By H.L. Mencken

Monogamy, in brief, kills passion
and passion is the most dangerous of all the surviving enemies to what we call civilization, which is based upon order, decorum, restraint, formality, industry, regimentation. The civilized man
the ideal civilized man
is simply one who never sacrifices the common security to his private passions. He reaches perfection when he even ceases to love passionately
when he reduces the most profound of all his instinctive experiences from the level of an ecstasy to the level of a mere device for replenishing the armies and workshops of the world, keeping clothes in repair, reducing the infant death-rate, providing enough tenants for every landlord, and making it possible for the Polizei to know where every citizen is at any hour of the day or night. Monogamy accomplishes this, not by producing satiety, but by destroying appetite. It makes passion formal and uninspiring, and so gradually kills it. — H.L. Mencken

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Robert Reich

You can't inspire people if you are going to be uninspiring. — Robert Reich

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Allan Nevins

If history were a photograph of the past it would be flat and uninspiring. Happily, it is a painting; and, like all works of art, it fails of the highest truth unless imagination and ideas are mixed with the paints. — Allan Nevins

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Anonymous

Fear comes in many forms, and we usually don't call it by its four-letter name. Fear itself is quite fear-inducing. Most intelligent people in the world dress it up as something else: optimistic denial. Most who avoid quitting their jobs entertain the thought that their course will improve with time or increases in income. This seems valid and is a tempting hallucination when a job is boring or uninspiring instead of pure hell. Pure hell forces action, but anything less can be endured with enough clever rationalization. — Anonymous

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Robin Sharma

Associate only with positive, focused people who you can learn from and who will not drain your valuable energy with uninspiring attitudes. By developing relationships with those committed to constant improvement and the pursuit of the best that life has to offer, you will have plenty of company on your path to the top of whatever mountain you seek to climb. — Robin Sharma

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Kathleen Turner

I find the idea of today's icons being teenagers incredibly uninspiring. — Kathleen Turner

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Rupert Dreyfus

Who votes for these uninspiring gorgons? — Rupert Dreyfus

Most Uninspiring Quotes By Jim Sturgess

I really don't like the idea of people knowing what I am doing. I find telling everybody what you had for breakfast is really uninspiring. — Jim Sturgess
