Best New Direction Quotes

  1. “Social change cannot come above the intellect, it comes about by people suffering. And the more people are related to that, the more they lose respect for an existing government. They will seek another direction. If there are too many people who seek a new direction, then the existing government calls upon the army and police to manage society – that is called fascism.” ~ Jacque Fresco
  2. “It is a tricky business to know when you should set goals and objectives in order to achieve a focus, and when you would be better off dealing with the acceptance and management of your current reality so you can later step into new directions and responsibilities with greater stability and clarity. Only you will know the answer to that, and only in the moment.” ~ David Allen
  3. “[The Man] was a case where it was a funny role teamed up with another actor. It’s a great teaming. And the role was a bigger role. It wasn’t so much that it was a co-starring role.

  7. “Behavior runs in deep channels that were cut during early childhood, and it is very difficult to alter them.

  9. “The gifts of the Master are these: freedom, life, hope, new direction, transformation, and intimacy with God. If the cross was the end of the story, we would have no hope. But the cross isn’t the end. Jesus didn’t escape from death; he conquered it and opened the way to heaven for all who will dare to believe. The truth of this moment, if we let it sweep over us, is stunning. It means Jesus really is who he claimed to be, we are really as lost as he said we are, and he really is the only way for us to intimately and spiritually connect with God again.” ~ Steven James
  10. “People who are not leaders automatically gravitate toward lines–limitations set by others. Many people are taught this in kindergarten when they are instructed to stay within the lines while coloring. But leaders are more creative than that. They look for options and opportunities.

In the autumn, everything took on a desolate cast, the colors swiftly fading before my eyes. The sunlight, the smell of the grass, the faintest patter of rain, everything got on my nerves.” ~ Haruki Murakami
  28. “In Jones’s experience, the decision to turn one’s life around in a different direction rarely arrived with fireworks and marching bands. Often, the decision came with tears and regret.

Some people use faith as a reason to remain stuck. They often say, “I have faith, so I’m waiting.” But faith is not complacent; faith is action. You don’t have faith and wait.
