Unappreciated Quotes By LK Hunsaker

If you feel unwanted or unappreciated where you are or by those you're with, it only means you're in the wrong place or with the wrong people. Hang in there. Someone else will see you for the true gift you are. — LK Hunsaker

When, at the end of their lives, most men look back they will find that they have lived throughout ad interim.

And so a man, having been duped by hope, dances into the arms of death. — Irvin D. Yalom

Unappreciated Quotes By Vladimir Nabokov

I became aware of the world's tenderness, the profound beneficence of all that surrounded me, the blissful bond between me and all of creation, and I realized that the joy I sought in you was not only secreted within you, but breathed around me everywhere, in the speeding street sounds, in the hem of a comically lifted skirt, in the metallic yet tender drone of the wind, in the autumn clouds bloated with rain. I realized that the world does not represent a struggle at all, or a predaceous sequence of chance events, but the shimmering bliss, beneficent trepidation, a gift bestowed upon us and unappreciated. — Vladimir Nabokov

Unappreciated Quotes By Snoop Dogg

Love goes unappreciated a lot of times, but you still gotta keep giving it. — Snoop Dogg

Unappreciated Quotes By Hilary Mantel

I once stole a book. It was really just the once, and at the time I called it borrowing. It was 1970, and the book, I could see by its lack of date stamps, had been lying unappreciated on the shelves of my convent school library since its publication in 1945. — Hilary Mantel

Evil was seductive and easy, and virtue was difficult and unappreciated. — Melissa De La Cruz

...Nature has its unexpected and unappreciated mercies. — Henry Beston

Unappreciated Quotes By Kathy J. Marshack

they feel ignored, unappreciated, and unloved. That's because their context-blind Aspie family members are so poor at empathic reciprocity. As we have learned, we come to know ourselves in relation to others. This doesn't just apply when children are developing self-esteem. Throughout our lifespan, we continue to weave and re-weave the context of our lives, based on the interactions we have with our friends, coworkers, neighbors and loved ones. This is why it is so important for an NT parent/partner to get feedback from their spouse. A smile, a hug, a kind word, a note of encouragement: These are messages that reinforce the NT's self-esteem and contribute to a healthy reciprocity in the relationship. Without these daily reminders from their loved ones, NTs can develop some odd defense mechanisms. One is to become psychologically invisible to others and even to themselves. — Kathy J. Marshack

Unappreciated Quotes By HENRY MANNE

Unfortunately, the truth is that in universities the world over, the tremendous analytical power and insights of market economics are unappreciated. For whatever political or ideological reasons, we have deprived generations of university students of a clear understanding of basic economic forces and their proper role in a free society. — HENRY MANNE

Unappreciated Quotes By Steve Maraboli

Poisonous relationships can alter our perception. You can spend many years thinking you're worthless ... but you're not worthless, you're unappreciated. — Steve Maraboli

Unappreciated Quotes By Adam Young

In my opinion, there is a huge lack of imaginative, unconventional music being created by artists today and what little there is, goes widely unappreciated by the masses. 'Port Blue' is my attempt at re-creating the music I want to hear and the emotions I want to feel."
"If by chance you ever feel as though you've come to know these songs, please consider yourself a friend because in a manner of speaking, you know me. This music is my heart and soul. This is who I am." (Adam R. Young, 2006) — Adam Young

Unappreciated Quotes By King Samuel Benson

Sometimes, life gets overwhelming. You feel pestered, overworked and unappreciated. Your vision becomes blurred and your dreams suddenly feel too far from reach. You feel wasted, even though you know you've come a long way. At that point, ALL YOU NEED TO DO is calm down, close your eyes and remember why you started out in the first place. You really just need to look within yourself to find your purpose again. — King Samuel Benson

Unappreciated Quotes By Ellen J. Barrier

Hanging with people who make you feel unappreciated, for the mere sake of appearing to be popular, is the loneliest place to be. — Ellen J. Barrier

Unappreciated Quotes By Norman Mailer

We call it hypocrisy, but it is schizophrenia, a modest ranch-house life with Draconian military adventures; a land of equal opportunity where a white culture sits upon a Black; a horizontal community of Christian love and a vertical hierarchy of churches
the cross was well-designed! a land of family, a land of illicit heat; a politics of principle, a politics of property; nation of mental hygiene with movies and TV reminiscent of a mental pigpen; patriots with a detestation of obscenity who pollute their rivers; citizens with a detestation of government control who cannot bear any situation not controlled. The list must be endless, the comic profits are finally small
the society was able to stagger on like a 400-lb. policeman walking uphill because living in such an unappreciated and obese state it did not at least have to explode in schizophrenia
life went on. Boys could go patiently to church at home and wait their turn to burn villages in Vietnam. — Norman Mailer

Unappreciated Quotes By Francis Wyndham

It is the tragedy of a distinguished mind and a generous nature that have gone unappreciated in a conventional, unimaginative world. A victim of men's incomprehension of women, a symptom of women's mistrust of men. — Francis Wyndham

Unappreciated Quotes By Tristan Tzara

Take a newspaper.
Take some scissors.
Choose from this paper an article of the length you want to make your poem.
Cut out the article.
Next carefully cut out each of the words that makes up this article and put them all in a bag.
Shake gently.
Next take out each cutting one after the other.
Copy conscientiously in the order in which they left the bag.
The poem will resemble you.
And there you are -- an infinitely original author of charming sensibility, even though unappreciated by the vulgar herd. — Tristan Tzara

Unappreciated Quotes By Jorge Luis Borges

Unappreciated because too many of his [Rudyard Kipling's] peers were socialists. — Jorge Luis Borges

Unappreciated Quotes By Ken Kesey

Marvelous wonders don't have to happen of a sudden, the way they do in the Arabian Nights. They can also take a long time, like crystals growing, or minds changing, or leaves turning. The trick is to keep an eye peeled, so they don't slip by unappreciated. — Ken Kesey

Unappreciated Quotes By John Eldredge

And loneliness is something we share with him. "The whole conviction of my life," wrote Thomas Wolfe, "now rests upon the belief that loneliness, far from being a rare and curious phenomenon peculiar to myself and a few other solitary men, is the central and inevitable fact of human existence." To be missed, or misunderstood. To be judged unfairly. To be wanted for what you can do, rather than who you are. To go on for years unappreciated, even unknown by those closest to you. — John Eldredge

Unappreciated Quotes By Rosemarie Yusen

A perfect word left behind in an imperfect World who does not know what it is capable of — Rosemarie Yusen

Unappreciated Quotes By Thomas Hardy

To give too much room to the latent feeling which is rather common in these days among the unappreciated, that because some remarkably successful men are fools, all remarkably unsuccessful men are geniuses.' 'Pretty — Thomas Hardy

Unappreciated Quotes By Rodney Ross

I stare at the beauty that comes automatically bundled and unappreciated with youth. I can't be this anymore. — Rodney Ross

Unappreciated Quotes By Matt Haig

(A male human's testicles were the most attractive thing about him, I realized, and vastly unappreciated by humans themselves, who would very often rather look at almost anything else, including smiling faces.) — Matt Haig

Unappreciated Quotes By Jim Butcher

You think you're funny." "Oh, I know I'm funny. Unappreciated, but funny. — Jim Butcher

Unappreciated Quotes By Frances Hesselbein

Dispirited, unmotivated, unappreciated workers cannot compete in a highly competitive world. — Frances Hesselbein

Unappreciated Quotes By Linda Sue Park

[W]hat people truly desire is access to the knowledge and information that ultimately lead to a better life
the collected wisdom of the ages found only in one place: a well-stocked library.
To the teachers and librarians and everyone on the frontlines of bringing literature to young people: I know you have days when your work seems humdrum, or unappreciated, or embattled, and I hope on those days you will take a few moments to reflect with pride on the importance of the work you do. For it is indeed of enormous importance
the job of safeguarding and sharing the world's wisdom.
All of you are engaged in the vital task of providing the next generation with the tools they will need to save the world. The ability to read and access information isn't just a power
it's a superpower. Which means that you aren't just heroes
you're superheroes. I believe that with all my heart. — Linda Sue Park

Unappreciated Quotes By Gustave Flaubert

There were dresses with trains, deep mysteries, anguish hidden beneath smiles. Then came the society of the duchesses; all were pale; all got up at four o'clock; the women, poor angels, wore English point on their petticoats; and the men, unappreciated geniuses under a frivolous outward seeming, rode horses to death at pleasure parties, — Gustave Flaubert

Unappreciated Quotes By Gavin De Becker

Imagine Cara caring enough to make a police report about an abused child knowing the information will likely be unwelcome to the police, enraging to the parent, and unappreciated by the child, knowing nothing might happen, or worse, that the kid may be beaten for the trouble it causes - yet hoping this case is one where the child is actually helped. There's nothing depressing about the heroism teachers show every day. — Gavin De Becker

Unappreciated Quotes By Diane Ackerman

So much in a relationship changes when a partner is seriously ill, helpless yet blameless, and indefatigably needy. I felt old. [p. 99]
The animal part of him in pain accepted my caring. But the part of himself watching himself in that pain didn't believe I could ever respect him again. None of this crossed my mind. I couldn't risk knowing it. No one could and continue caregiving. They'd feel so unappreciated and wronged that it would drive them away. [p. 100] — Diane Ackerman

Unappreciated Quotes By Francine Prose

I dropped a word from the string of negative adjectives that had trailed behind me like tin cans behind the village idiot. Unappreciated, unloved, unmarried. But no longer unpublished. — Francine Prose

Unappreciated Quotes By S.W. Clemens

Each day a whole world passes away, largely unappreciated, numbly relegated to obligation, commerce and routine. One day seems as unremarkable as the next. It's only through the inexorable accretion of days, weeks, months and years, that we come to appreciate with heartbreaking clarity how incredibly unique and precious each lost day has been. — S.W. Clemens

Unappreciated Quotes By Alice Foote MacDougall

You the rich are no whit more attractive or capable than you who were poor and struggling a few years back. But when before you plodded lonely and unappreciated, now the glamour of the motor and the smart apartment surrounds you with a tangible glory. It is amazing how many friends look you up, call you by name, and extol you, who were once a little timid, or indifferent, or utterly neglectful in your time of dire poverty. One has true friends when one is poor and no riches can be greater than that. They are not so obvious when one is rich. — Alice Foote MacDougall

Unappreciated Quotes By Khaled Hosseini

I remembered how, as a boy, I would stew over all the things Mama wouldn't do, things other mothers did. Hold my hand when we walked. Sit me up on her lap, read bedtime stories, kiss my face good night. Those things were true enough. But, all those years, I'd been blind to a greater truth, which lay unacknowledged and unappreciated, buried deep beneath my grievances. It was this: that my mother would never leave me. — Khaled Hosseini

Unappreciated Quotes By Abraham Cowley

A mighty pain to love it is,
And 't is a pain that pain to miss;
But of all pains, the greatest pain
It is to love, but love in vain. — Abraham Cowley

Unappreciated Quotes By Elif Shafak

Even a speck of love should not go unappreciated, because, as Rumi said, love is the water of life. — Elif Shafak

Unappreciated Quotes By Tina Howe

The tools I handle are words. They may be unappreciated or misunderstood, but they tell us who we are. — Tina Howe

Unappreciated Quotes By Louis De Bernieres

Women only nag when they feel unappreciated. — Louis De Bernieres

Unappreciated Quotes By Ann Voskamp

The family tree of Christ startlingly notes not one woman but four. Four broken women - women who felt like outsiders, like has-beens, like never-beens. Women who were weary of being taken advantage of, of being unnoticed and uncherished and unappreciated; women who didn't fit in, who didn't know how to keep going, what to believe, where to go - women who had thought about giving up. And Jesus claims exactly these who are wandering and wondering and wounded and worn out as His. He grafts you into His line and His story and His heart, and He gives you His name, His lineage, His righteousness. He graces you with plain grace. Is there a greater Gift you could want or need or have? Christ comes right to your Christmas tree and looks at your family tree and says, I am your God, and I am one of you, and I'll be the Gift, and I'll take you. Take Me? — Ann Voskamp

Unappreciated Quotes By D. Todd Christofferson

Hard-earned achievement brings a sense of self-worth. Work builds and refines character, creates beauty, and is the instrument of our service to one another and to God. A consecrated life is filled with work, sometimes repetitive, sometimes menial, sometimes unappreciated but always work that improves, orders, sustains, lifts, ministers, aspires. — D. Todd Christofferson

Unappreciated Quotes By William Edward Hartpole Lecky

There are times in the lives of most of us, when we would have given all the world to be as we were but yesterday, though that yesterday had passed over us unappreciated and unenjoyed. — William Edward Hartpole Lecky

Unappreciated Quotes By Joshua Wisenbaker

True Genuis often goes unnoticed and unappreciated. Only through the lense of time do we see genuis and how it has affected the world around us. — Joshua Wisenbaker

Unappreciated Quotes By Nako

How can you rest peacefully when your wife doesn't even look like the same woman you married fifteen years ago? It's obvious Farren was unappreciated, and he wanted to be elsewhere, but oh well. — Nako

Unappreciated Quotes By Kilroy J. Oldster

A pensive personality and ambivalent attitude towards power and money can cause other people to take a high production or creative person for granted. — Kilroy J. Oldster

Unappreciated Quotes By Brad Alan Lewis

White Hot Concentration is the unappreciated fruit of hard ligting, especially squats. When your in the squat rack, with a serious amount of weight overhead, your life literally depends on maintaining concentration. You learn to block out the swirling images in the mirror, the obnoxious chatter of the people next to you, the fat drop of sweat running down your nose. Once you've mastered this concentration in the weight room, duplicating it on the race course is relatively easy. Champions have only a few things in common. One weapon they all possess is White Hot Concentration. — Brad Alan Lewis

Unappreciated Quotes By Dick Cavett

I haven't ever found any great writing on that wonderful and often unappreciated art form, the insult. — Dick Cavett

Unappreciated Quotes By Bill Bryson

Think of a single problem confronting the world today. Disease, poverty, global warming ... If the problem is going to be solved, it is science that is going to solve it. Scientists tend to be unappreciated in the world at large, but you can hardly overstate the importance of the work they do. If anyone ever cures cancer, it will be a guy with a science degree. Or a woman with a science degree. — Bill Bryson

Unappreciated Quotes By Connie Kerbs

Motherhood (and fatherhood) is one of the most important, while at the same time being one of the most long-time, unappreciated roles we may ever find ourselves in. Add to that, it seems at times to be taken as much for granted by our society at large, as by the developing young we pour our all into. Quality parenting is also wrought with joy and satisfaction at every turn, being one of the most rewarding, and fulfilling experiences we have the opportunity to know in this thing we call the human condition. — Connie Kerbs

Unappreciated Quotes By Amanda Leigh

Days, hours, minutes,
seconds slip by
unappreciated, unnoticed.
Notice them.
Appreciate them.
And treat them
like they could be
your last. — Amanda Leigh

Unappreciated Quotes By Napoleon Hill

Anything acquired without effort, and without cost is generally unappreciated. — Napoleon Hill

Unappreciated Quotes By Jessica Valenti

The cultural insistence that parenting is the 'most important' job in the world is a smart way to satiate unappreciated women without doing a damn thing for them. — Jessica Valenti

Unappreciated Quotes By Louis De Bernieres

Just bring in the wood before she asks for it, and bring her a flower every time you come back from the field. If it's cold put a shawl around her shoulders, and if it's hot, bring her a glass of water. It's simple. Women only nag when they feel unappreciated. Think of her as your mother who has fallen ill, and treat her accordingly.'(43) — Louis De Bernieres

Unappreciated Quotes By T. Colin Campbell

In short, it is about the multiple health benefits of consuming plant-based foods, and the largely unappreciated health dangers of consuming animal-based foods, including all types of meat, dairy and eggs. — T. Colin Campbell

Unappreciated Quotes By Adam Kirsch

With luck, a writer capable of producing both Slouching Towards Kalamazoo and The Blood of the Lamb will not remain unappreciated for long. — Adam Kirsch

Unappreciated Quotes By Sarah Ban Breathnach

We should write an elegy for every day that has slipped through our lives unnoticed and unappreciated. Better still, we should write a song of thanksgiving for all the days that remain-now that we know how to cherish them. — Sarah Ban Breathnach
