Best Seem Quotes

  1. “Faith means believing the unbelievable.” ~ Gilbert K. Chesterton
  2. “Limit or eliminate late-night computer and television viewing. A computer or TV screen may seem much dimmer than a light bulb, but these screens often fill your field of vision, mimicking the effects of a room filled with light.” ~ Andrew Weil
  3. “Some things are so impossible, so fantastic, that when they happen, you are not at all surprised. Their sheer impossibility has made you imagine them too many times in your head, and when you find yourself on that longed-for moonlit path, it seems unreal but still, somehow, familiar. You dreamed of it, of course; you know it like a memory.” ~ Andrew Sean Greer
  4. “As so often in life, things are not always what it seems.” ~ Paulo Coelho

  5. “For both of us, I think, it had to do with our weakened power to love. It is strange that enslavement should have that effect – not just the fantastic degradation, not just the fear and the boredom and all the rest, but also the layered injustice, the silent injustice.

And at the same time I am obliged to speak. I shall never be silent. Never.” ~ Samuel Beckett
  7. “I can’t ever seem to shake the feeling that when things are really good it essentially means that things are going to go really bad. When I feel calm and settled, there is always an underlying feeling of impending doom… I don’t think that it’s healthy.” ~ Florence Welch
  8. “It doesn’t seem to be worth wasting a lot of energy on attempting to rewrite the past.” ~ Douglas Tompkins

  9. “My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?” ~ C. S. Lewis
  10. “The sound must seem an echo to the sense.” ~ Alexander Pope
  11. “The measure of a man comes down to moments, spread out like dots of pain on the canvas on life. Everything you were, everything you’ll someday be, resides in the small, seemingly ordinary choices of everyday life…..Each decision seems as insignificant as a left turn on an unfamiliar road when you have no destination in mind. But the decisions accumulate until you realize one day that they’ve made you the man that you are.” ~ Kristin Hannah
  12. “Some persons seem to like you, and others seem to hate you, and you must wonder why. They are simply liking machines and hating machines.” ~ Kurt Vonnegut

  13. “it seems Montgomery could not help himself when it came to this vase. I’m afraid he has a weakness for beautiful things and has been known to relocate an item if he feels it is not being accorded the proper appreciation. Once he ‘relocated’ an ancient sculpture from the home of another archangel.” ~ Nalini Singh
  14. “A naive man is nothing better than a fool. But you women contrive to be naive in such a way that in you it seems sweet, and gentle, and proper, and not as silly as it really is.” ~ Anton Chekhov

  17. “That rock ‘n’roll, eh? That rock’n’roll, it just won’t go away. It might hibernate from time to time, sink back into the swamp. I think the cyclical nature of the universe in which it exists demands that acquiesce to some of its rules. But it’s always waiting there, just around the corner,” he added. “Ready to make its way back through the sludge and smash through the glass ceiling, looking better than ever. Yeah, that rock’n’roll, it seems like it’s faded away sometimes, but it will never die. And there’s nothing you can do about it.” ~ Alex Turner
  18. “It just seems so fundamental to me. I’m able to marry the person I wanted to marry. That’s the fundamental human imperative. Those of us who have been lucky enough should expand these rights to others.” ~ Chelsea Clinton
  19. “Of course, I would like to know what [Sony and Microsoft] do with their machines, but there is no game that I feel the need to go see. So far, from what I’ve seen on the show this year, there does not seem to be any games that I would like to have created myself.” ~ Shigeru Miyamoto

  22. “Deconstruction seems to offer a way out of the closure of knowledge. By inaugurating the open-ended indefiniteness of textuality by thus ‘placing in the abyss’ (mettre en abime), as the French expression would literally have it-it shows us the lure of the abyss as freedom. The fall into the abyss of deconstruction inspires us with as much pleasure as fear. We are intoxicated with the prospect of never hitting bottom” ~ Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak
  23. “I’m not a very fancy person. I’ve been a writer a long time, and right now ‘The Hunger Games’ is getting a lot of focus. It’ll pass. The focus will be on something else. It’ll shift. It always does. And that seems just fine.” ~ Suzanne Collins
  24. “I’ve always felt that there’s a point where a piece seems to be alive, that is, living. And that’s the point where I know the composition is finished.” ~ David Tudor

  26. “I’m interested in things which suggest the world rather than express the personality… The most conventional thing, the most ordinary – it seems to me that those things can be dealt with without having to judge them; they seem to me to exist as clear facts, not involving aesthetic hierarchy.” ~ Jasper Johns

You can close your heart, and you can sleep even with your eyes closed, but you can never close your ears.” ~ Jeff Buckley
  30. “We Die Young is about gang violence. That was something that was happening in Seattle, something that kinda opened our eyes. It just seemed like things were getting out of hand. Incidents where kids were getting shot, and getting their tennis shoes ripped off their dead bodies. It just seems like these kids are dying at younger and younger ages and getting involved in gang activity.” ~ Layne Staley
  31. “If you want to be fully convinced of the abominations of slavery, go on a southern plantation, and call yourself a negro trader. Then there will be no concealment; and you will see and hear things that will seem to you impossible among human beings with immortal souls.” ~ Harriet Ann Jacobs
  32. “Wonder, and its expression in poetry and the arts, are among the most important things which seem to distinguish men from other animals, and intelligent and sensitive people from morons.” ~ Alan Watts

  33. “Modern society seems to be a celebration of all the things that lead away from the Truth, make Truth hard to live for, and discourage people from even believing that it exists.

So well that it seems that their morally repugnant treatment of the Palestinians, and their attempts to destroy Palestinian society within Israel and the occupied territories, reveals them as basically Nazis with beards and black hats.” ~ Norman Finkelstein
  35. “The Americans may think they have ‘liberated’ Baghdad but the tens of thousands of thieves – they came in families and cruised the city in trucks and cars searching for booty – seem to have a different idea what liberation means.” ~ Robert Fisk
  36. “It seems we all agree that training the body through exercise, diet, and relaxation is a good idea, but why don’t we think about training our mind?” ~ Sakyong Mipham

  39. “Watching the Dallas Cowboys perform, it is not difficult to believe that coach Tom Landry flew fourengines bombers during World War II. He was in B17 Flying Fortresses out of England, they say. His cautious, conservative approach to every situation and the complexity of the plays he sends in do seem to reflect the philosophy of a pilot trained to doggedly press on according to plans laid down before takeoff. I sometimes wonder how the Cowboys would have fared all this years had Tom flown fighters in combat situations which dictated continuously changing tactics.” ~ Len Morgan

  46. “Gold, unlike all other commodities, is a currency…and the major thrust in the demand for gold is not for jewelry. It’s not for anything other than an escape from what is perceived to be a fiat money system, paper money, that seems to be deteriorating.” ~ Alan Greenspan
  47. “My efforts to prevent closing of the gold window-working through Connally, Volcker, and Shultz-do not seem to have succeeded. The gold window may have to be closed tomorrow because we now have a government that is incapable, not only of constructive leadership, but of any action at all. What a tragedy for mankind!” ~ Arthur F. Burns

  49. “When caring for your neighbor becomes a compulsory obligation imposed by government instead of voluntary, charity turns to confiscation and freedom to achieve to involuntary servitude. To liberals, compassion seems to be defined by how many people are dependent on the government; to conservatives, it’s defined by how many people no longer need help. One promotes dependence, the other freedom, responsibility and achievement.” ~ Star Parker
