Unanswered Quotes By Lynsey Addario

the Christian Science Monitor and the AP. I wrote to the photo desk of the New York Times several times, offering myself up as a stringer, and each time my e-mail went unanswered. I wrote directly to the New York Times correspondents based in India and asked if I could shoot anything for them. They told me they took their own pictures while on assignment. I would keep trying. I felt that if I could only shoot for the New York Times - to me, the newspaper that most influenced American foreign policy and that employed the world's best journalists - I would reach the pinnacle of my career. — Lynsey Addario

Unanswered Quotes By Alfred Binet

Our purpose is to be able to measure the intellectual capacity of a child who is brought to us in order to know whether he is normal or retarded ...

Unanswered Quotes By W.A. Hoffman

He shrugged. "It is usually not a pleasant emotion I find myself filled with."

"And now? Do you feel it now?"

"Oui. It is pleasant. I have no name for it. Can you name yours?"

"Oui." I bit my lip. I was hesitant to speak it, as I had always been soundly rebuked for it before. "Love." He took a long breath and studied the horizon. I cringed inwardly.

"You are sure?" he asked.


"You have felt this before?"

"Oui, and it has gone unanswered...every time." His eyes were filled with trepidation when they found mine. "Not this time. — W.A. Hoffman

Unanswered Quotes By Italo Calvino

I am the man who comes and goes between the bar and the telephone booth.

Unanswered Quotes By Robert Penn Warren

I got an image in my head that never got out. We see a great many things and can remember a great many things, but that is different. We get very few of the true images in our heads of the kind I am talking about, the kind that become more and more vivid for us as if the passage of the years did not obscure their reality but, year by year, drew off another veil to expose a meaning which we had only dimly surmised at first. Very probably the last veil will not be removed, for there are not enough years, but the brightness of the image increases and our conviction increases that the brightness is meaning, or the legend of meaning, and without the image our lives would be nothing except an old piece of film rolled on a spool and thrown into a desk drawer among the unanswered letters. — Robert Penn Warren

Unanswered Quotes By Sandra Chami Kassis

Unanswered Quotes By Kerry Greenwood

Our Lord never referred to unanswered prayer; he taught that prayers are always answered. He ever implied that prayers were answered rightly because of the Heavenly Father's wisdom. — Oswald Chambers

Unanswered Quotes By Tai Morello

Still, in this book, we will treat the chakras as if they are actual components of a subtle body, even as we leave the overarching question of their existential status (physical? psychical? imaginal? fictitious?) unanswered. This agnostic approach means that you don't actually have to believe in the literal reality of chakras to get something out of this book and start working with the chakra system. If — Tai Morello

Unanswered Quotes By Maya Angelou

What sets one Southern town apart from another, or from a Northern town or hamlet, or city high-rise? The answer must be the experience shared between the unknowing majority (it) and the knowing minority (you). All of childhood's unanswered questions must finally be passed back to the town and answered there. Heroes and bogey men, values and dislikes, are first encountered and labeled in that early environment. In later years they change faces, places and maybe races, tactics, intensities and goals, but beneath those penetrable masks they wear forever the stocking-capped faces of childhood. — Maya Angelou

Unanswered Quotes By Ozzy Osbourne

Unanswered Quotes By Francesca Lia Block

my friends stitched it up with golden thread
like a red
satin pillow they gave me other whole ones too
roses and charms and red candles
milagros to repair the real one
they told me i was no longer allowed to give it away
a pretty pin cushion
a piece of mexican folk art
a hundred beating poems left unanswered
like a thing to wear around the neck
they said you must heal we will protect you
but i sat weeping at the computer forging ahead anyway
with the small stitched thing struggling in my chest
it knew that it had needed to be torn
so that it could recognize and receive the hundred kindnesses
traveling across three thousand miles at the speed of light
a storm of petals and beautiful words and tiny hearts to keep it
company — Francesca Lia Block

Unanswered Quotes By Thomas S. Monson

The problems of our day loom ominously before us. Surrounded by the sophistication of modern living, we look heavenward for that unfailing sense of direction, that we might chart and follow a wise and proper course. He whom we call our Heavenly Father will not leave our sincere petition unanswered. — Thomas S. Monson

Unanswered Quotes By Stormie O'martian

Thank You, Lord, that I am a child of Yours, set apart for Your glory, and that You hear my prayers. When I pray, help me to have the peace of knowing You have heard my prayer and will answer in Your way and in Your perfect timing. Show me if there is ever anything in my life that would become a barrier between me and You so that my prayers would go unanswered. — Stormie O'martian

Unanswered Quotes By Thomas Sowell

Unanswered Quotes By Paulo Coelho

Unanswered Quotes By Joe Carnahan

Unanswered Quotes By Curtis Jackson

If I didn't smell so good would you still hug me? — Curtis Jackson

Unanswered Quotes By Oswald Chambers

When prayer seems to be unanswered, beware of trying to place the blame on someone else. That is always a trap of Satan. When you seem to have no answer, there is always a reason - God uses these times to give you deep personal instruction, and it is not for anyone else but you. — Oswald Chambers

Unanswered Quotes By Kurt Vonnegut

There was a message written in pencil on the tiles by the roller towel. This was it:
What is the purpose of life?
Trout plundered his pockets for a pen or pencil. He had an answer to the question. But he had nothing to write with, not even a burnt match. So he left the question unanswered, but here is what he would have written, if he had found anything to write with:
To be
the eyes
and ears
and conscience
of the Creator of the Universe,
you fool. — Kurt Vonnegut

Unanswered Quotes By Oscar Wilde

O we are wearied of this sense of guilt,
Wearied of pleasure's paramour despair,

For man is weak; God sleeps: and heaven is high:
One fiery-colored moment: one great love: and lo! we die. — Oscar Wilde

("The Undying Thing") — Barry Pain

Unanswered Quotes By Seth Klarman

Unanswered Quotes By Steve Allen

Laughter would appear to be a physical reflex, although even if it is, this still leaves unanswered the question of why the human response to humor is a convulsive spasm of the respiratory mechanism rather than a crossing of the eyes or a waving of the arms. — Steve Allen

Unanswered Quotes By Garth Brooks

Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers. — Garth Brooks

Unanswered Quotes By Graham McNeill

Unanswered vox hails requested medical aid and supply, but the line of Astartes at the top of the north ridge was grimly silent as the exhausted warriors of the Raven Guard and Salamanders came to within a hundred metres of their allies. A lone flare shot skyward from inside the black fortress where Horus had made his lair, exploding in a hellish red glow that lit the battlefield below like a madman's vision of the end of the world. And the fire of betrayal roared from the barrels of a thousand guns. — Graham McNeill

Unanswered Quotes By J. Cameron McClain

To my surprise, the sensation of query filled my stomach, spreading through to every corner. This was followed by each point of query ending at the same answer. Device Nineteen had responded to the question by coming to the conclusion that oblivion was the end of every path.
Great. My roommate's an emo.>

You must have been working very hard here, with so few distractions."

Unanswered Quotes By Rick Warren

Until we mature enough to understand that God uses everything for good in our lives, we harbor resentment toward God over our appearance, background, unanswered prayers, past hurts, and other things we would change if we were God. People often blame God for hurts caused by others. This creates what William Backus calls your hidden rift with God. — Rick Warren

highly organised life. — James Joyce

Unanswered Quotes By Shannon L. Alder

Unanswered Quotes By Sheryl Crow

Don't the wounded bird still sing? — Sheryl Crow

Unanswered Quotes By Thomas Pynchon

Losing faith is a complicated business and takes time. There are no epiphanies, no "moments of truth." It takes much thought and concentration in the later phases, which thenselves come about through an accumulation of small accidents: examples of general injustice, misfortune falling upon the godly, prayers of one's own unanswered. — Thomas Pynchon

Unanswered Quotes By Rick Warren

Living by faith isn't living with certainty. It's trusting God in spite of unanswered questions and unresolved doubts. — Rick Warren

Unanswered Quotes By Pope John Paul II

Unanswered Quotes By Stewart O'Nan

I don't like coming home. It keeps me from being nostalgic, which by nature I am. Even before the plane begins its descent, I find myself dreading the questions left unanswered by my childhood. — Stewart O'Nan

Unanswered Quotes By Mary MacLane

Sometimes I think I am a strange, strange creature -- something not of earth, nor yet of heaven, nor of hell. I think at times I am a little thing fallen on the earth by mistake: a thing thrown among foreign, unfitting elements, where every little door is closed -- every Why unanswered, and itself knows not where to lay its head. I feel a deadly certainty in some moments that the wild world contains not one moment of rest for me, that there will never be any rest, that my woman's-soul will go on asking long, long centuries after my woman's-body is laid in its grave. — Mary MacLane

Unanswered Quotes By Janet Jackson

Does what you think of you determine your worth? — Janet Jackson

Unanswered Quotes By C. G. Jung

Most modern physicists have accepted the fact that the role played by the conscious ideas of an observer in every microphysical experiment cannot be eliminated; but they have not concerned themselves with the possibility that the total psychological condition (both conscious and unconscious) of the observer might play a role as well. As Pauli points out, however, we have at least no a priori reasons for rejecting this possibility. But we must loot at this as a still unanswered and an unexplored problem. — C. G. Jung

Unanswered Quotes By Arthur Christiansen

Good stories flow like honey but bad stories stick in the craw [gullet]. What is a bad story? It's a story that cannot be absorbed in the first time of reading. It's a story that leaves questions unanswered. — Arthur Christiansen

Unanswered Quotes By Avi Arad

You have to believe in the arthouse, if you will - the emotion, the conflict, the who am I, which will always be an unanswered question. If you do it right, you have a smaller drama, and a great movie. — Avi Arad

Unanswered Quotes By Terence McKenna

So part of what being psychedelic means, I think, is relentlessly living with unanswered questions. — Terence McKenna

Unanswered Quotes By Craig Lucas

I have written a couple of screenplays for studios, and each time has been less gratifying than the last. In my experience, they want no real representations of homosexuality, they want no complexity, they are terrified of ambiguity and unanswered questions - they don't know what they want, except that they want to make lots of money. The only freedom I've ever had as an artist has been in the theatre ... — Craig Lucas

Unanswered Quotes By Kate Morton

It suddenly seemed to Laurel that all the absences in her own life, every loss and sadness, every nightmare in the dark, every unexplained melancholy, took the shadowy form of the same unanswered question, something that had been there since she was sixteen years old - her mother's unspoken secret. — Kate Morton

Unanswered Quotes By Jason Chaffetz

I think what we're going to hear is that we didn't meet the basic, minimum standards required for a facility such as the one we had in Benghazi. And the request for more security personnel went unheeded, unanswered, and consequently, you know, you have the death of four Americans. — Jason Chaffetz

Unanswered Quotes By Weldon Kees

But the room is cold, the words in the books are cold;
And the question of whether we get what we ask for
Is absurd, unanswered by the sound of an unlatched door
Rattling in wind, or the sound of snow on roofs, or glare
Of the winter sun. What we have learned is not what we were told.
I watch the snow, feel for the heartbeat that is not there. — Weldon Kees

Unanswered Quotes By Joel Osteen

I just think that trusting God means we're going to have unanswered questions, and God is so much bigger than us, we're never going to understand them all. — Joel Osteen

Unanswered Quotes By Martin Amis

If you feel you have a strong constituency among the young, you can really die happy, because the great unanswered question, the only valid value judgment is whether you're going to last, and that tells you that you are, for a bit at least. — Martin Amis

Unanswered Quotes By Peter Akinti

Like two old philosophers, Ashvin and James spoke of the ruin of their lives, their unfulfilled needs, their unanswered prayers and ultimately they were seduced by the phantom call to death by suicide its science, its poetry, its violence, its art. — Peter Akinti

Unanswered Quotes By Virginia Woolf

The voice had an extraordinary sadness. Pure from all body, pure from all passion, going out into the world, solitary, unanswered, breaking against rocks - so it sounded. — Virginia Woolf

Unanswered Quotes By Peter Carlaftes

Just like life, it was over much too soon. And just like life, there weren't any answers. But like that one-in-an-eight-million great New York moment, I didn't need one. (Dark City Lights) — Peter Carlaftes

Unanswered Quotes By Devon Ashley

Why can't our existence be like the stars? Happily twinkling and dancing in the night sky, bringing light and entertainment to all who see? The stars make everyone ponder unanswered questions, makes everyone smile. And no matter who you are, where you are or what you've done, they're always there for you. No matter what. — Devon Ashley

Unanswered Quotes By Lisa Unger

Others of us are lost. We're forever seeking. We torture ourselves with philosophies and ache to see the world. We question everything, even our own existence. We ask a lifetime of questions and are never satisfied with the answers because we don't recognize anyone as an authority to give them. We see life and the world as an enormous puzzle that we might never understand, that our questions might go unanswered until the day we die, almost never occurs to us. And when it does, it fills us with dread. — Lisa Unger

Unanswered Quotes By Nora Roberts

Shannon: Only the living suffered. Only they were riddled with guilt and regret and unanswered questions. — Nora Roberts

Unanswered Quotes By Mark Batterson

God has determined that certain expressions of His power will only be exercised in response to prayer. Simply put, God won't do it unless you pray for it. We have not because we ask not, or maybe I should say, we have not because we circle not. The greatest tragedy in life is the prayers that go unanswered because they go unasked. — Mark Batterson

Unanswered Quotes By Anne Graham Lotz

Are you facing a superheated furnace? What God wants is for you to look full in the face of Jesus. Get your focus off whatever it is that appears to be unanswered and focus on the Son. — Anne Graham Lotz

Unanswered Quotes By Joel Osteen

Faith is about trusting God when you have unanswered questions. — Joel Osteen

Unanswered Quotes By Jay Asher

Unanswered Quotes By George R R Martin

Man's curiosity drives him to seek the answer to every question. But it's the unanswered questions that are the most exciting. — George R R Martin

Unanswered Quotes By Urvashi Balasubramaniam

I wander the pathway,
Where will it go?
Will I be able to go there,
Fast or slow?

Who has made it?
Why is it here,
Is there something dangerous,
That will soon appear?

Should I be excited?
Or possibly full of fear?
What should be my emotion,
As I draw near?

Where will the pathway lead me?
Unanswered questions in my head,
But I will only find out,
As I go ahead. — Urvashi Balasubramaniam
