When he looks back, the critic sees a eunuch’s shadow. Who would be a critic if he could be a writer? Who would hammer out the subtlest insight into Dostoevsky if he could weld an inch of the Karamazovs, or argue the poise of Lawrence if he could shape the free gust of life in The Rainbow?

Deepak Chopra
Quinn Cummings is a master story-teller and her book is nothing short of delightful.

We’re all just a bundle of habits shaped by our memories. And to the extent that we control our lives, we do so by gradually altering those habits, which is to say the networks of our memory.

Jonis Agee
When I think about my own work, there usually is one or the other light bulb moment where there is this flash of insight. Where do these ideas come from? Supernatural? Enigmatic? Divine?

Lauryn Hill

They say that women’s sexual peaks are in their 30s or 40s, and I think that it happens because they’re more comfortable. It’s not some hormonal change that happens at that age. Of course, it would be nice to have more physiological insight on that.
Mary Roach
I’d say, [writing memoir] not so much a model, but maybe to provide an insight, here or there, to help somebody come to terms with the dark corners of their own soul, to come to terms with the undecided, their own sense of self, and maybe help develop a capacity to love – to love wisdom, love justice.
Cornel West

Keith Olbermann
Inward spiritual practices such as meditation, breathing techniques and self-analysis generate insights and enhance abilities, but none are so useful as learning to live harmoniously in a committed relationship, being a skillful parent, or juggling the demands of daily life.
Dan Millman
Introspection and preserved writings give us far more insight into the ways of past humans than we have into the ways of past dinosaurs. For that reason, I’m optimistic that we can eventually arrive at convincing explanations for these broadest patterns of human history.
Jared Diamond
Books give us insight into other people, other cultures. They make us laugh. They make us think. If they are really good, they make us believe that we are better for having read them. You don’t read a book – you experience it. Every story opens up a new world.
Karin Slaughter
Will & Grace’ was my favourite show growing up and retains a special place in my heart, not least because it was such a refreshing and witty insight into gay life. The older me loves ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm.’

John Amos Comenius
Insight occurs when, and to the degree that, one knows oneself.
Andrew Schneider
Being a magician taught me how powerful the element of surprise can be. In each book, I’ve tried to work that in – an unexpected twist in a story that reveals an insight, a counter intuitive study that turns your beliefs upside-down.
Adam Grant
A friend will give you immediate feedback and that will be that friend’s opinion. An analyst often remains quiet and you hear what you’ve said and you gain your own insight.
Mary Tyler Moore
People don’t want the raw data, but instead want marketers to decipher the tech speak for them and present the valuable insights.

Joan D. Chittister
If I have any insight at all to contribute it is this: find out what you are really good at and stick to it.

Helena Bonham Carter
A zebra does not change its spots.

Leonard Cohen
Brilliant men are often strikingly ineffectual. They fail to realize that the brilliant insight is not by itself achievement. They never have learned that insights become effectiveness only through hard systematic work.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
All good Literature rests primarily on insight.
George Henry Lewes
The good news is that, at least in economics, I’ve seen movement away from its overemphasis on mathematical models of purely rational behavior to a more eclectic and commonsense approach: research that is, among other things, more respectful of insights from psychology.

Kofi Annan
The grand sweep of constitutional or political history is important, but a detailed history of daily life also gives you a wonderful insight into the strange mental worlds of people in the past.

Robert Browning
Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment. We also gain immediate access to our own powerful inner resources for insight, transformation, and healing.
Jon Kabat-Zinn
There’s lots of R&B blogs that I like going on and it basically just names new music that isn’t out and won’t be out for a long time and stuff. It just gives you an insight on what’s coming up next and finding out about new artists.

Ambrose Bierce
For every woman who’s ever wondered about the path not taken, Fenton and Steinke mine—with tremendous humor and insight—the mixed blessing of unexpected second chances.

Justin Menkes
Keeping a [journal] need not be a major chore-just a few minutes of notes each day can be valuable. Writing crystallizes insights, fools the defense of forgetfulness, and builds a collection of ideas and reflections that can spur further insights even years later.
Roger N. Walsh
For me, photographs take their power from memory and emotion. A picture tells its own story, shaped by the mood or insights of the person you are at the time you see it.

Arthur Conan Doyle
One of the great advantages of the study of old Norse or Icelandic literature is the insight given by it into the origin of world-wide superstitions. Norse tradition is transparent as glacier ice, and its origin is as unmistakable.
Sabine Baring-Gould
It has given me an insight into what it’s like as an actor to come into a show in the middle of a production and fit into a group that’s already established.
Corin Nemec
Even in the most purely logical realms, it is insight that first arrives at what is new.
Bertrand Russell
Each of the world religions has its own particular genius, its own special insight into the nature and requirements of compassion, and has something unique to teach us.
Karen Armstrong
I love getting insight into what makes actors tick.
Iliza Shlesinger
Most new insights come only after a superabundant accumulation of facts have removed the blindness which prevented us from seeing what later comes to be regarded as obvious.
Isidor Isaac Rabi
You have to make mistakes to find out who you aren’t. You take the action, and the insight follows: You don’t think your way into becoming yourself.
Anne Lamott
I started hormone therapy illegally and I thought I looked good enough for my family to accept. I was wrong. It was a disaster. My sister ran screaming calling me the demon with blue eyes. Using her Christianity as the base for her insight into seeing me as a demon.
Dominique Jackson
I say ‘spectacle’ rather than ‘story’ because in the end, it isn’t the intricacies of narrative that draw us to horror films. When it’s there, I’m grateful for the director’s skill at telling an exquisitely nuanced tale filled with psychological insight, but it is the spectacles that I take home with me.
Clive Barker
Speed is often confused with insight. When I start running earlier than the others, I appear faster.
Johan Cruijff
I hate that you don’t have the insight.
I hate that you shamelessly returned despite being kicked out.
I hate that you don’t even seem to have the slightest self-respect.
And also the fact that you used San as your “heart-wrenching” excuse to return.
Back to this hell-hole.
Cho Gun-woo
Bryzgalov isn’t just a running comedy act. He’s one of the league’s most thoughtful players and the fact that he offers the insight he does in his second language is something he’ll never get enough credit for.
Ilya Bryzgalov
When I was young, I was very blessed to have this insight that my best work would be when I was an older actress. I just always knew that as a young actress.
Betty Buckley
Ritual is the most primitive reflection of serious thought, a slow deposit, as it were, of people’s imaginative insight into life.
Susanne Katherina Langer
Liberation exists- and you will never be liberated.
Ramana Maharshi
New questions can produce new scientific leaps. They can tiddlywink new flips of insight and understanding. Big ones. Paradigm shifts.
Howard Bloom
Some of the best advice and insights I have ever received in my professional life have come from people, by listening to them, by getting out of the bubble, by getting out of our coastal media centers.
Kellyanne Conway
Curation is a form of pattern recognition – pieces of information or insight which over time amount to an implicit point of view.
Maria Popova
There are insights that can be born only of your own pain, and they are the most precious. Seek [within] the undiscovered part of yourself. (emphasis added)
Janusz Korczak
Lack of comfort means we are on the threshold of new insights.
Lawrence M. Krauss
I don’t think any evil character thinks that they are evil – they think they have insight that people don’t.
Eugene Simon
The good pupils are often brilliant, and they keep you on your toes and take you to the limits of your knowledge. The worst pupils provide a unique insight into the criminal mind.
John le Carre
The First Insight Theory: Mysterious coincidences cause the reconsideration of the inherent mystery that surrounds our individual lives on this planet.
James Redfield
The authentic insight and experience of any human soul, were it but insight and experience in hewing of wood and drawing of water, is real knowledge, a real possession and acquirement.
Thomas Carlyle
I find inspiration in each and every person that I cross paths with. Every human being I interact with offers me a significant insight on some aspect of life.
Maneet Chauhan
Changing is not just changing the things outside of us. First of all we need the right view that transcends all notions including of being and non-being, creator and creature, mind and spirit. That kind of insight is crucial for transformation and healing.
Nhat Hanh
The listeners got some such insights into their past lives, as one gets into the darker parts of the woods, when a stray gleam of sunshine finds its way down to the roots of the trees.
James F. Cooper
The most fertile source of insight is hindsight.
Morris Kline
My “thinking” time was devoted mainly to activities that were essentially clerical or mechanical: searching, calculating, plotting, transforming, determining the logical or dynamic consequences of a set of assumptions or hypotheses, preparing the way for a decision or an insight.
J. C. R. Licklider
Develop your reflective will and gain better insight before you say or do something.
Bill Hybels
I hear Democrats say, ‘The Affordable Care Act is the law,’ as though we’re supposed to genuflect at that sunburst of insight and move on. Well, the Fugitive Slave Act was the law, separate but equal was the law, lots of things are the law and then we change them.
George Will
Do poets have any insight into what’s the right ratio? I doubt it, but I think that they can be awake to what the ends are.
Robert Hass
It would have been funny if I had been an observer and not a participant, an idea that gave me a disconcerting insight into gossip. As I walked beside the silent Tamara, I realized that despite how entertaining certain stories were, at the bottom of every item of gossip there was someone getting hurt.
Sherwood Smith
Humor brings insight and tolerance. Irony brings a deeper and less friendly understanding.
Agnes Repplier
Leaders need to provide strategy and direction and to give employees tools that enable them to gather information and insight from around the world. Leaders shouldn’t try to make every decision.
Bill Gates
The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world.
Carl Sagan
Ageing is a process of exchanging hope for insight
Sheridan Hay
The only Sundance [2011] film about cults that could actually have life as a cult film, THE WOODS has the greatest comic insight into why our current culture might inspire a search for meaning in the first place.
Karina Longworth
By living so long, the supercentenarian earns the prefixal ‘super’ and becomes a person suddenly freighted with power and meaning. He’s Gandalf, Yoda, the Ancient Mariner, perhaps with some otherworldly insight. He’s lived so long that, in fact, he’s living the afterlife to his own initial life.
Michael Paterniti
What else is nature but God?
Seneca the Younger
I’ve come to recognize what I call my ‘inside interests.’ Telling stories. And helping people tell their stories is a sort of interpersonal gardening. My work at NBC News was to report the news, but in hindsight, I often tried to look for some insight to share that might spark a moment of recognition in a viewer.
Jane Pauley
You can’t expect insights, even the big ones, to make you suddenly understand everything. But I figure: Hey it’s a step in the right direction if they leave you confused in a deeper way.
Lily Tomlin
Changes in the structure of society are not brought about solely by massive engines of doctrine. The first flash of insight which persuades human beings to change their basic assumptions is usually contained in a few phrases.
Kenneth Clark
Family . . . the home of all social evil, a charitable institution for comfortable women, an anchorage for house-fathers, and a hell for children.
August Strindberg
Dying makes everyone weaker, subject to painful insight, and not always insight into any kind of special truth – it’s just the approaching end that makes people want to believe they are seeing something in the line of a great revelation.
Jeff Lindsay
Share the wealth. Be generous with your joy. Give away what you most want. Be generous with your insights and delights.
Pema Chodron
Education – much like law or medicine – should be a profession governed by professionals. Unfortunately, too many policies, even those that are well-intentioned, come from the top, leaving out those closest to the classroom, who have the greatest insight into how to provide a high-quality education for all students.
Randi Weingarten
The goal is to turn data into information, and information into insight.
Carly Fiorina
It is not sociologists who provide insights but photographers of our sort who are observers at the very center of their times. I have always felt strongly that this was the photographer’s true vocation.
To learn and think; to think and live; to live and learn: this always, with new insight, new understanding, and new love.
Sylvia Plath
Master of the universe is every man’s potential insight, cosmic potential.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
You carry Mother Earth within you. She is not outside of you. Mother Earth is not just your environment. In that insight of inter-being, it is possible to have real communication with the Earth, which is the highest form of prayer.
Thich Nhat Hanh
To cite the facts of history is to fall prey to ‘moral equivalence,’ or ‘political correctness,’ or ‘the error of of atheism,’ or one of the other misdeeds concocted to guard against the sins of understanding and insight into the real world.
Noam Chomsky
Hoyle’s enduring insights into stars, nucleosynthesis, and the large-scale universe rank among the greatest achievements of 20th-century astrophysics. Moreover, his theories were unfailingly stimulating, even when they proved transient.
Fred Hoyle
I ask only child-free pals for parenting advice because they’re the only ones sane and well-rested enough to have any real insight.
Glennon Doyle Melton
A data scientist is that unique blend of skills that can both unlock the insights of data and tell a fantastic story via the data.
DJ Patil
I don’t feel there’s anything about my experience of being gay that gives me more insight into “don’t ask, don’t tell,” for example, than anybody else.
Rachel Maddow
I am honored to serve on the Board of Visitors for Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service. Being the first board member from Latin America, I hope to provide insight into the economical, social and political issues facing the region, and continue to grow and strengthen this prestigious institution.
Ricardo Salinas Pliego
In this nonfundamentalist understanding of faith, practice is more important than theory, love more important than law, and mystery is seen as an insight into truth rather than an obstacle. It is the great lie of our time that all religious faith has to be fundamentalist to be valid.
Andrew Sullivan
Any supreme insight is a metaphor.
Charles Henry Parkhurst
Well, I don’t have any greater insight than anybody else.
Jensen Huang
Between each album I try to gain a new insight that I didn’t have before and perhaps write a song about something that I’ve written about before, but from a fresh viewpoint.
Don Henley
Cynicism is what passes for insight among the mediocre.
Joe Klein
Revealed insights should leave us stricken with the knowledge of how little we really know. It should never lead to an emotional arrogance based upon a false assumption that we somehow have all the answers – that we in fact have a corner on truth. For we do not.
Hugh B. Brown
Alternating the thoughtful task of writing with the mindless work of laundry or dish washing will give you the breaks you need for new ideas and insights to occur. If you don’t know what comes next in the story… clean your toilet. Change the bed sheets. For Christ sakes, dust the computer. A better idea will come.
Chuck Palahniuk
To see ourselves as others see us is a most salutary gift. Hardly less important is the capacity to see others as they see themselves.
Aldous Huxley
I thought some of Mrs. White’s material was prophetic. I felt some of her insights were extremely helpful and I regarded her as a sister in the Lord. I wasn’t out to attack Ellen White’s character.
Walter Martin
Penetrative insight joined with calm abiding utterly eradicates afflicted states.
Self-pity gets you nowhere. But insight to see that something can be done with the second-bests and adventurous daring to try might be a handle to take hold of.
Harry Emerson Fosdick
Insight, I believe, refers to the depth of understanding that comes by setting experiences, yours and mine, familiar and exotic, new and old, side by side, learning by letting them speak to one another.
Mary Catherine Bateson
The purpose of visualization is insight, not pictures
Ben Shneiderman
The best vision is insight.
Malcolm Forbes
Perhaps the difference between a professor and a bus driver is that the professor can say stupid things with complete authority while the bus driver is not authorized to make brilliant insights.
Les Back
As the unity of the modern world becomes increasingly a technological rather than a social affair, the techniques of the arts provide the most valuable means of insight into the real direction of our own collective purposes.
Marshall McLuhan
Re-investing in one’s own little moments of insight is very important.
Anish Kapoor
Writing is an outward expression of instinctive insight that must be summoned from the vastly deep of our mysterious selves. Therefore, it cannot be taught; indeed, it cannot even be summoned; it can only be permitted.
William Hughes Mearns
Many years ago, I think I got my first insight on how an incredibly diverse team can work together and do astonishing things, and not just misunderstand each other and fight.
John P. Kotter
The key, I suppose, has less to do with insight than with willingness, the former being relatively useless without the latter.
Caroline Knapp
The general interest of the masses might take the place of the insight of genius if it were allowed freedom of action.
Denis Diderot
My aim in painting is to create pulsating, luminous, and open surfaces that emanate a mystic light, in accordance with my deepest insight into the experience of life and nature.
Hans Hofmann
Churches provide a place of gathering for people who share common beliefs, support and encouragement for each other in faith, a place to find insight into and teaching about God’s Word, and they provide a time and place where people can leave the world behind and focus only on their spiritual relationship with God.
Mary C. Neal
Prajna is insight into the world. And a lot of that insight has to do with karma and the way karma affects our lives.
Jess Row
In truth, even if they have an imperfect insight into their own methods, I still slightly mistrust writers of fiction who are assured literary critics; it makes me suspect that they favour the word over the world it should describe. Such scribes fall victim too easily to the solecism of equating style with morality.
Will Self
I like to tell my own story using my personality and my insight, the way I see things.
Michael Waltrip
I was fortunate to be part of a very successful show on CBS in 1986. I switched to NBC for eight years and through these experiences have gotten terrific insight into television; it’s a fascinating medium.
Will McDonough
When asked to give a speech never turn it down. It is a chance to develop you and to give new insight to others
Jim Rohn
I look for people who have insight in places where I don’t.
Russell Simmons
It is a commonplace of all religious thought, even the most primitive, that the man seeking visions and insight must go apart from his fellows and love for a time in the wilderness.
Loren Eiseley
My work is to reach people with ideas, hopes, dreams, encouragement, insight, and revelation. That’s what an actor wants to do.
John Astin
There is a lot in Adam Smith that reflects the insights of Rousseau and anticipates those of Marx.
Allen W. Wood
If we do a little bit of insight into history, how many times have there been people doing hate discourse, blaming everything on a certain group of people. That really is the genesis of genocide, where it kind of sparks.
Gael Garcia Bernal
Ages when custom is unsettled are necessarily ages of prophecy. The moralist cannot teach what is revealed; he must reveal what can be taught. He has to seek insight rather than to preach.
Walter Lippmann
Rod Clark has one of the most unique voices I have ever encountered. I still quote some of his political insights years later. To have him write political science fiction is both appropriate and intriguing.
Kristine Kathryn Rusch
It takes mystical insight to see the beauty and innocence in each other, even when that is not what we are showing to the world. That is why God is needed in intimate relationships, to move us beyond the perceptions that can so often poison love.
Marianne Williamson
We cannot kindle when we will The fire which in the heart resides, The spirit bloweth and is still, In mystery our soul abides: But tasks in hours of insight will’d Can be through hours of gloom fulfill’d.
Matthew Arnold
Truthfulness itself is almost medication, even when it’s served without advice or insight.
Augusten Burroughs
since each child reads only about six hundred books in the course of childhood, each book should nourish them in some way – with new ideas, insight, humor, or vocabulary.
Joan Aiken
Then comes the insight that All is God. One still realizes that the world is as it was, but it does not matter, it does not affect one’s faith.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
Gorbachev’s stance contrasts admirably with the policy of the sainted Abraham Lincoln, who used massive force and mass murder to force the seceding Southern states to remain in the Union.
Murray Rothbard
I hope that Beyond the Robe helps you to feel closer to the monks and nuns and to better understand their immense potential to provide leadership in their world and further insight into ours. Instead of simply admiring them from afar, let’s all get close enough to really listen.
Bobby Sager
the mysterious complexity of our life is not to be embraced by maxims … to lace ourselves up in formulas of that sort is to repress all the divine promptings and inspirations that spring from growing insight and sympathy.
George Eliot
The irrationality of disgust suggests it is unreliable as a source of moral insight. There may be good arguments against gay marriage, partial-birth abortions and human cloning, but the fact that some people find such acts to be disgusting should carry no weight.
Paul Bloom
Every day we live is a priceless gift of God, loaded with possibilities to learn something new, to gain fresh insights.
Dale Evans
One learns much more by writing fiction, because the insights come from those deeper subconscious levels where the greater and more interesting truths lie.
Francine du Plessix Gray
Like the Governor-General, when asked what you enjoy most about the job my tendency is to say “today”, because of the insights you get into our nation and because of the privileged contact you have with so many people.
Tony Abbott
The insight to see possible new paths, the courage to try them, the judgment to measure results – these are the qualities of a leader.
Mary Parker Follett
When your back is against the wall, there is only one thing to do, and that is turn around and fight.
John Major
Lyrically and thematically, the title ‘Doctor Faith’, that song is about therapy, psychotherapy, and that song is about emotions and personal insight. I think all the songs on the record sort of go along with that.
Christopher Cross
I find flaws attractive. I find scars attractive.
Angelina Jolie
Consistency is a virtue for trains: what we want from a philosopher is insights, whether he comes by them consistently or not.
Stephen Vizinczey
Creative expression is not just a means of getting attention, although some have approached art that way. Think of art as a way of connecting, of sharing your insights with others.
Nita Leland
Intuition is when we use our experience, and the patterns we have learned, to rapidly size up situations and know how to respond without going through deliberate analysis. Intuitions depend on the patterns we have acquired. Insight is about gaining new patterns.
Gary A. Klein
With the strength of his spiritual sight and insight the distance, and as it were the space, around man continually expands: his world grows deeper, ever new stars, ever new images and enigmas come into view.
Friedrich Nietzsche
If Jesus is the Son of God, his teachings are more than just good ideas from a wise teacher; they are divine insights on which I can confidently build my life.
Lee Strobel
There are moments that aren’t great. And I think it’s amazing for people to be able to have some insight, to be able to see the support system and what really happens.
Allyson Felix
Analyzing through special insight and realizing the lack of inherent existence constitute understanding of the signless.
Gautama Buddha
Without memory there can be no insight. Without love, there can be no appreciation.
Anne Rice
History, if thoroughly comprehended, furnishes something of the experience which a man would acquire who should be a contemporary of all ages and a fellow citizen of all peoples.
Philibert Joseph Roux
If the arts are held up solely as a means of social insight, fantasy is denied the chance to be commonplace and reality the chance to be exotic.
Richard Eyre
Poetry is not an end in itself but in the service of life; of what use are poems, or any other works of art, unless to enable human lives to be lived with insight of a deeper kind, with more sensitive feelings, more intense sense of the beautiful, with deeper understanding?
Kathleen Raine
By providing memorable social media customer service, companies not only create deeper connections with consumers, but they glean valuable insights on how to improve their products or services.
Amy Jo Martin
Zen insight is not our awareness, but Being’s awareness of itself in us.
Thomas Merton
Wisdom is the aristic craving for extraordinary insights, for incandescent revelations that have the power to burst through banausic and doulic ordinariness: wisdom is the lust to be transfigured, transvaluated.
Kenny Smith
Elizabeth Hay has intelligence coming out of her fingertips – integrity, insight, and wonder in every paragraph of her writing.She connects. She stirs and provokes.
Timothy Findley
Never look for the story in the ‘lede.’ Reporters are required to put what’s happened up top, but the practiced pundit places a nugget of news, even a startling insight, halfway down the column, directed at the politiscenti. When pressed for time, the savvy reader starts there.
William Safire
Seriousness is no more a guarantee of truth, insight, authenticity or probity, than humour is a guarantee of superficiality and stupidity.
Stephen Fry
The true teacher is within us. A good teacher is someone who can help you to go back and touch the true teacher within, because you already have the insight within you.
Bell Hooks
I descend from both Philadelphia Quakers and Carolina colonists whose families were separated by the Revolutionary War. That helped give me insight into the agony of Patriots who, until the British government denied their claims, had always, like Ben Franklin himself, thought of themselves as free-born Englishmen.
Edward Rutherfurd
Face your deficiencies and acknowledge them; but do not let them master you. Let them teach you patience, sweetness, insight.
Helen Keller
Congressional overseers and the public must be given appropriate insight into government activities as well as their legal rationale to ensure America’s values are being upheld and our interests advanced.
Dianne Feinstein
How many voices have escaped you until now, the venting furnace, the floorboards underfoot, the steady accusations of the clock numbering the minutes no one will mark. The terrible clarity this moment brings, the useless insight, the unbroken dark.
Dana Gioia
The astral dimensions afford you opportunities to have experiences and gain insights into the structural nature of how dimensions are made up and phased together.
Frederick Lenz
Watch the functioning of your own mind in a calm and detached manner so you can gain insight into your own behavior.
Henepola Gunaratana
When I read stories of suffering, I still feel something. It seems inhuman not to. At the same time, I’m more aware than ever of how little my feeling is worth, of how – if we are to truly keep alive the conditions that make ethical life possible – it is not empathy that’s needed but insight, organization, and action.
Kim Brooks
The purpose of education is to keep a culture from being drowned in senseless repetitions, each of which claims to offer a new insight.
Harold Rosenberg
Josh Hanagarne has an astonishing story to tell, and he does so with insight, humor, grace, and wonder. All human beings suffer and struggle. Through the lens of his own miraculous experiences, Mr. Hanagarne illuminates the path to joy and the infinite possibilities of transcendence.
Melanie Rae Thon
Lean into your curiosity about any issue, and there will likely be people to share a little bit more of their knowledge and insight and give you ideas on how to make change.
Opal Tometi
Access to your true essence will give you insight into the mirror of relationship, because all relationship is a reflection of your relationship with yourself.
Deepak Chopra
The bones and flesh and legal statistics are the garments worn by the personality, not the other way around.
Robert M. Pirsig
Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
George Santayana
Religious insights and values are just as important today as they were 50 or 100 years ago.
Dallin H. Oaks
Many scientists think that philosophy has no place, so for me it’s a sad time because the role of reflection, contemplation, meditation, self-inquiry, insight, intuition, imagination, creativity, free will, is in a way not given any importance, which is the domain of philosophers.
Deepak Chopra
I listened to a lot of old school, golden era music. It gave me a lot of insight on how to rap and give my all.
Big K.R.I.T.
There is the old catch-22 line that a mentally unstable person can’t know, as per their illness, that they are unstable. But that was wrong. You can and do have the insight to see your own crazy.
Harlan Coben
Why should not we have a poetry and philosophy of insight and not of tradition, and a religion by revelation to us, and not the history of theirs?
Ralph Waldo Emerson
In a way, math isn’t the art of answering mathematical questions, it is the art of asking the right questions, the questions that give you insight, the ones that lead you in interesting directions, the ones that connect with lots of other interesting questions -the ones with beautiful answers.
Gregory Chaitin
Generative ideas emerge from joint thinking, from significant conversations, and from sustained, shared struggles to achieve new insights from partners in thought.
Vera John-Steiner
We must not offer people a system of redemption, a set of insights and principles. We offer people a Redeemer.
Paul David Tripp
A visionary is someone who sees the future with both insight and foresight: Insight into the deeper causes and meaning of events in the world, and foresight, or an intuitive grasp of the big picture, such as the trajectory of politics and popular culture.
Corinne McLaughlin
One must be truly able to say I in order to know the mystery of the Thou in its whole truth.
Martin Buber
The greatest of all miracles is that we need not be tomorrow what we are today. The greatest of all insights is that we cannot be tomorrow what we do not do today. That is why today matters.
John C. Maxwell
It’s not like you get up in the morning on the first day of shooting and say, ‘I’m so smart today I’m going to determine every choice I make from now until a year and a half from now.’ So it changes. You gain insights. The movie bucks you.
Robert Schwentke
Drinking beer with friends is perhaps the most underestimated of all Reformation insights and essential to ongoing reform; and wasting time with a choice friend or two on a regular basis might be the best investment of time you ever make.
Carl R Trueman
I want books to give me insight into the way people’s brains work and hearts work, and that’s what engages me.
Gillian Flynn
Seek first to understand, then to be understood.
Stephen Covey
The Male Factor is the singularly best business book for women I’ve read in years. This well-researched yet thoroughly readable book is rich with rare insights into how men really see women in the workplace-and how with a few simple adjustments you can even the playing field.
Lois P Frankel
What promotes math progress even more than new ideas are new technical tools and habits of thought that encapsulate existing ideas, so that insights of one generation become the instincts of the next.
Jim Propp
I don’t have the insight with the Longhorns that I do with the two teams that I own, but as a fan and reading the sports pages, I’m bullish about the Longhorns.
Tom Hicks
Insight is the first condition of Art.
George Henry Lewes
Madame Bovary is timeless. It is not just about the female condition in France in the 1840s. It’s not a simple cautionary tale. Emma is more than a character; she gives us an insight into human nature. With Emma, we are diving into the complexities of Flaubert’s psyche.
Sophie Barthes
The essence of profound insight is simplicity.
James C. Collins
And seemingly as winter has become spring, confusion has become insight.
Andrew McMahon
God did His most magnificent work while Adam was asleep. This episode contains and important insight: When man rests, God works.
Leonard Sweet
We are the first generation of human beings to have substantial insights into the origin of our cosmos and of human life in it.
Arthur Peacocke
The greatest million dollar insight I can give anybody is find a big problem and then solve it in a big way.
Brian Tracy
Highway One, Antarctica is a wonderful debut by a writer with razor-sharp insights to the human condition. Justin Herrmann is a voice I hope to hear more from, and soon. Excellent collection.
Jo-Ann Mapson
Not until Freud’s writings became popular did descriptions of infants center on relationships with their mothers. The idea that children have feelings of any lasting importance for their development is a very recent invention (or insight if you wish).
Sandra Scarr
Nothing is so powerful as an insight into human nature… what compulsions drive a man, what instincts dominate his action. If you know these things abut a person, you can touch him at the core of his being.
William Bernbach
I’ve been able to not only be a fighter, but a thinking fighter, where I can use my insight into the business and politics of the sport to make my decisions.
Mikey Garcia
Kumbh Mela is the best way to get an insight of our culture.
Payal Rohatgi
While I admire the insights of many of the people in the world of computing, I get this cold feeling that I speak a different language.
Clifford Stoll
I met a lot of famous people when I was about 24. And none of them seemed very appealing. And so I didn’t know why I would struggle to be that kind of person.
Ethan Hawke
Some of the shrewdest insight into natural processes have been greeted at the outset by the exclamation ‘But that’s ridiculous’.
Lewis Thomas
The way to win is to work, work, work, work and hope to have a few insights And you’re probably not going to be smart enough to find thousands in a lifetime. And when you get a few, you really load up. It’s just that simple.
Charlie Munger
To be a scholar of mathematics you must be born with talent, insight, concentration, taste, luck, drive and the ability to visualize and guess.
Paul Halmos
I’m really looking at questions of power, navigation, and spin. Then I am also looking for real-world stories that give me greater insight into smart and new ways of thinking.
Noreena Hertz
Writers are such phonies: they sometimes have wise insights but they don’t live by them at all. That’s what writers are like…you think they know something, but usually they are just messes.
Anne Sexton
I love being coached. I get angry when I’m not coached. I ask a lot of questions and certainly appreciate any insight and feedback. I think if you ever stop listening to coaching or stop asking questions, you probably need to be doing something else.
Peyton Manning
Most portraits are lies. People are rarely what they appear to be, especially in front of a camera. You might know me your entire lifetime and never reveal yourself to me. To interpret wrinkles as character is insult not insight.
Duane Michals
Alan Kay’s famous aphorism is that perspective is worth 80 IQ points. An innovative insight is not the product of an individual’s brilliance. It’s not as if innovators’ heads are wired in different ways. Innovation typically comes from looking at the world through a slightly different lens.
Gary Hamel
Keynes was a very good economist. He was brilliant. He had wonderful insights. His work has inspired me many times.
Thomas J. Sargent
True happiness comes from gaining insight and growing into your best possible self. Otherwise all you’re having is immediate gratification pleasure, which is fleeting and doesn’t grow you as a person.
Philanthropists today want input into how their monies are being deployed. The big question is, can governments use this insight to sell the rich the idea of paying more tax rather than spend more on charitable giving?
Noreena Hertz
If you like my music and it brings you emotions whether Joy or Pain, I feel I have done my part to give you insight from my perspective and that it continues. I think music suppose to bring us all together and I am glad I can take you along on this journey.
Sean Paul
It is not possible to express the most precious insights, To see all that craves to be seen, To visit even the closest neighbors in the universe, To learn all that needs to be learned, To live without dying, And I am sad about it. But I lived And I am happy about that.
Dejan Stojanovic
A hearing heart loves to whom it listens.
Doug Melvin
Over the course of several articles, I will give you the tools to become a sentence connoisseur as well as a sentence artisan. Each of my lessons will give you the insight to appreciate fine sentences and the vocabulary to talk about them.
Constance Hale
And no book gives a deeper insight into the inner life of the Negro, his struggles and his aspirations, than, The Souls of Black Folk.
Ray Stannard Baker
When you let go, you lose pain and gain insight.
Alexandra Stoddard
Insight, untested and unsupported, is an uncertain guarantee of the truth.
Bertrand Russell
Being snarky and smug doesn’t equate to providing insight, and there’s more than one occasion when the filmmakers lose sight of this in their zeal to spread the Gospel According to Maher.
James Berardinelli
The big insight that I have, not so much from writing ‘Red Notice’ but from living as the main character of ‘Red Notice’, is that Russia was and is a criminal state unlike any other sovereign country.
Bill Browder
We sometimes have a flash of understanding that amounts to the insight of genius, and yet it slowly withers, even in our hands – like a flower. The form remains, but the colours and the fragrance are gone.
Robert Musil
All of us must cross the line between ignorance and insight many times before we truly understand.
David Hawkins
As I’ve gotten older, and now that my kids are starting to do what they do, I am now really focusing on sharing my knowledge and insights with them to help guide them on their journeys.
Jada Pinkett Smith
The purpose of computing is insight, not numbers.
Richard Hamming
Electronic culture created soulless replacements for connective rituals- television supplanted tribal legends told by the fire; ‘fast food’ consumed in distraction took the place of a shared meal. We substituted matter for Mater (feminine principle), money for mother’s milk, objects for emotional bonds.
Daniel Pinchbeck
We might be wise to follow the insight of the enraptured heart rather than the more cautious reasoning of the theological mind.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
Generally speaking, it is inhumane to detain a fleeting insight.
Fran Lebowitz
I finished reading High Output Management by Andrew Grove, which had such valuable insights for leaders that I’ve been forcing managers at Duolingo to read the book.
Luis von Ahn
For me, a really radical position for journalism to take is to stop being cynical. Cynicism is what passes for insight among the mediocre.
Joe Klein
Most high officials leave office with the perceptions and insights with which they entered.
Henry A. Kissinger
I was still more concerned (a preference which you may be far from resenting) to strike a blow for Epicurus, that great man whose holiness and divinity of nature were not shams, who alone had and imparted true insight into the good, and who brought deliverance to all that consorted with him.
If you can get better at your job, you should be an active member of LinkedIn, because LinkedIn should be connecting you to the information, insights and people to be more effective.
Reid Hoffman
Effective questioning brings insight, which fuels curiosity, which cultivates wisdom.
Chip R. Bell
Any teacher can study books, but books do not necessarily bring wisdom, nor that human insight essential to consummate teaching skills.
Bliss Perry
Joanna Priestley’s amazing body of animated films have deservedly earned their place in the pantheon of contemporary international animators. Inventively visioned, superbly crafted, and rich with insight into the physical and spiritual dilemmas that confront us all, each new work provides an unexpected pleasure.
Bill Foster
A lack of seriousness has led to all sorts of wonderful insights.
Kurt Vonnegut
All abilities are paid for with disabilities. perfect health may entail the heavy toll of bovine stupidity. insight into one area involves blind spots in another.

If you wish to assured of the truth of Christianity, try it. Believe, and if thy belief be right, that insight which gradually transmutes faith into knowledge will be the reward of thy belief.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Love and marriage are wonderful arenas in which to place a character. We are most likely to risk our morals and beliefs while in love. Betrayal gives tremendous insights into a character as well.
Anita Shreve
On the spiritual path, all the dreck and misery is transformed, maybe not that same day, but still transformed into spiritual fuel or insight.
Anne Lamott
An idea or an insight doesn’t come from a single happening, it requires a meeting to alter a perspective. Often it takes a while for the events to collide, but when they do it is inevitable that a change will follow.
Nick Bantock
Only an artist as preternaturally acute and copacetic, as oddly visionary and just odd as Richard Artschwager would be able to lay out the whole course of human evolution and have it make some kind of sense while also seeming like a dazzling insight.
Jerry Saltz
I am in the representational business, a portraitist. I have tried to walk an amused line amid hyperbole, documentary detail, cruel characterisation, occasional affection, some good punchlines and anthropological social insight. It’s been a good living.
Michael Wolff
To gain customer insights, we must understand that we are prisoners of what we know and what we believe.
Mohanbir Sawhney
I look upon the pleasure which we take in a garden as one of the most innocent delights in human life. . . It gives us a great insight into the contrivance and wisdom of Nature, and suggests innumerable subjects for meditation.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
The essence of information…is not its content but its resonance. This is why feeling or sensing things is so important. To sense the resonance of incoming information co-creates a resonant field.
Jose Arguelles
The hypothesis may be put forward, to be tested by the s subsequent investigation, that this development has been in large part a matter of the reciprocal interaction of new factual insights and knowledge on the one hand with changes in the theoretical system on the other.
Talcott Parsons
The heart of mathematics consists of concrete examples and concrete problems. Big general theories are usually afterthoughts based on small but profound insights; the insights themselves come from concrete special cases.
Paul Halmos
I want to stay involved in gymnastics forever, but the Olympics really opened up doors in terms of motivational speaking. I’d like do some type of broadcasting or commentating for gymnastics events on TV, or even give my insights as a gymnast into other sports; I’m kind of a sports junkie in general.
Jonathan Horton
During periods of relaxation after concentrated intellectual activity, the intuitive mind seems to take over and can produce the sudden clarifying insights which give so much joy and delight.
Fritjof Capra
At ‘The School of Life’, we take seriously anything that has to do with human fulfilment – and take note wherever insight on this subject can be found.
Alain de Botton
When you know the lyrics to a tune, you have some kind of insight as to it’s composition.
Dexter Gordon
Being a father can unreason your worldview, or at least make it very flexible, and that can create all sorts of fun and insights. Its sad that childrens open-eyed wonder and sense of play begin to fade as they approach adolescence. One grand function of fathering is to keep the fading to a minimum.
Clyde Edgerton
We must be both rational and intellectual, both analytic and imaginative, utilizing both statistics and insight.
Real education happens when you pick up a fact here, and another fact there, and put them together and get an insight.
Terry Pratchett
To invest successfully over a lifetime does not require a stratospheric IQ, unusual business insights, or inside information. What’s needed is a sound intellectual framework for making decisions and the ability to keep emotions from corroding that framework. You must supply the emotional discipline.
Warren Buffett
I became part of a little study group in community college and started caring about strangers. It gave me insight into what an asshole I was. I saw that I had only lived half of a life.
Dan Harmon
When Obama was inaugurated, he and his team had an insight – though whether the insight was conscious or not I don’t know. But it was this: The TARP $700 billion price tag was a new kind of model.
John Podhoretz
Our thoughts are ours, their ends none of our own
William Shakespeare
My readings are really about connecting people, whether it’s to their deceased loved ones and finding the closure through that or connecting them to insight into their personal lives. Those are the connections that I aim to make and those are what make the biggest difference.
Tyler Henry
We are as humans essentially products of our hardware – that is an insight that I’ve taken with me into the trading side.
Roy Niederhoffer
I feel like, whatever movie I was making, there would always be moments of human intimacy and insight into a little bit of what makes us tick as people.
Colin Trevorrow
The ECK books are simply to show people how to go inside themselves, into the pureness of their heart, where they can get answers directly from the Inner Master about things of a spiritual nature, insights to help them in their life.
Harold Klemp
The technology certainly changes. I think, in terms of making films, that’s been the biggest change. But many things stay the same. I mean, there’s still stories to be told. There are scripts that give you a good guide and insight into the film.
Howard Shore
Not only virtue, but also insight, not only sanctity but also wisdom, are the duties and tasks of mankind.
Otto Weininger
We who are of mature age seldom suspect how unmercifully and yet with what insight the very young judge us.

The moment of truth, the sudden emergence of a new insight, is an act of intuition.
Arthur Koestler
To the creative individual all experience is seminal-all events are equidistant from new ideasand insights.
Eric Hoffer
All bad Literature rests upon imperfect insight, or upon imitation, which may be defined as seeing at second-hand.
George Henry Lewes
Minister and writer Barbara Kaufmann has addressed the subject of guerrilla decontextualization on both the ‘Voices Compassionate Education’ website and on ‘Inner Michael’, where she offers the kind of insights into the spiritual aspects of Michael Jackson’s creative artistry that mainstream media mostly ignores.
Tolerance gives us spiritual insight, which is as far from fanaticism as the north pole is from the south.
Mahatma Gandhi
So would a Being, endowed with higher insight and more perfect intelligence, watching man and his doings, smile about man’s illusion that he was acting according to his own free will.
Albert Einstein
Insight is the God given ability for you to know your Identity, your Kingdom ID; your spiritual DNA; your uniqueness in the earth and in the Body of Christ. There is no one like you. You are predestined for Greatness.
Chuck Pierce
Music therapy, to me, is music performance without the ego. It’s not about entertainment as much as its about empathizing. If you can use music to slip past the pain and gather insight into the workings of someone else’s mind, you can begin to fix a problem.
Jodi Picoult
Justin Hermann is one of the best new voices in short fiction-deep and entertaining as hell, with many funny lines, unexpected turns of events, and great insights. Wonderful stories: each one is a trip!
Josip Novakovich
The beauty of the ragamuffin gospel lies in the insight it offers into Jesus: the essential tenderness of His heart, His way of looking at the world, His mode of relating to you and me. ‘If you really want to understand a man, don’t just listen to what he says, but watch what he does.
Brennan Manning
Life is like a landscape. You live in the midst of it but can describe it only from the vantage point of distance.
Charles Lindbergh
Inspirational and will challenge readers to get involved in the lives of others to make a difference. Thank you for sharing your wonderful insight and encouragement.
Mary Fallin
In some strange way, any new fact or insight that I may have found has not seemed to me as a “discovery” of mine, but rather something that had always been there and that I had chanced to pick up.
Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar
The man with insight enough to admit his limitations comes nearest to perfection.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I am excited to join the Bancor advisory board and provide guidance and insight to such an innovative team and protocol.
Brock Pierce
I am convinced that the Black man will only reach his full potential when he learns to draw upon the strengths and insights of the Black woman.
Manning Marable
Lateral thinking… is the process of using information to bring about creativity and insight restructuring. Lateral thinking can be learned, practised and used. It is possible to acquire skill in it just as it is possible to acquire skill in mathematics.
Edward de Bono
The perpetual danger which besets religion is that it may substitute gentility and aestheticism for prophetic insight and power.
Georgia Harkness
If you do not yet know where you fit, I suggest you try seeking it in receptive silence. I used to walk amid the beauties of nature, just receptive and silent, and wonderful insights would come to me.
Peace Pilgrim
Pavel Palazchenko has given us a well-written, inside account of Gorbachev’s and Shevardnadze’s diplomacy. Remarkably objective, it is full of insights, makes fascinating reading, and will also be a prime source for scholars long into the future.
Jack F. Matlock, Jr.
Only when inspired to go beyond consciousness by some extraordinary insight does beauty manifest unexpectedly.
Arthur Erickson
Mark Twain gave us an insight into the life on the Mississippi at the turn of the century.
Bob Newhart
Reflective thinking turns experience into insight.

Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Shut your eyes and see.
James Joyce
In the advertising business, a good idea can inspire a great commercial. But a good insight can fuel a thousand ideas, a thousand commercials.
Phil Dusenberry
Our mind is capable of passing beyond the dividing line we have drawn for it. Beyond the pairs of opposites of which the world consists, other, new insights begin.
Hermann Hesse
I want to defend the right of employees to share the gospel in appropriate situations. Every situation requires wisdom and insight. I don’t think it’s wise to say, “Share the gospel every time you can”. I can see all kinds of problems that come from that approach.
Mark Dever
One of the things I think we’re learning to do as the twelfth insight emerges is to be discerning without being judgmental, because condemning someone certainly feels like a comic event that brings other things back on you.
James Redfield
Shannon’s most radical insight was that meaning was irrelevant.
William Poundstone
Star Trek’s insight lay in the promise of going to the stars together, with well-defined stereotypes who could supply the emotional frame for the potentially jarring truths of these distant places.
Gregory Benford
Surrender is not something that you can do. If you do it, it is not surrender, because the doer is there. Surrender is a great understanding that, “I am not.” Surrender is an insight that the ego exists not, that, “I am not separate.” Surrender is not an act but an understanding.
The mind is like tofu. By itself, it has no taste. Everything depends on the flavor of the marinade it steeps in.
Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
The paradox is that we have this amazing capacity in our minds and hearts to learn and gain insights and then to build a kind of personal storehouse of knowledge. The underside is that those insights harden and fill the spaces in our hearts and minds. They become assumptions, conclusions and judgments.
Mark Nepo
There are poems
that are never written,
that simply move across
the mind
like skywriting
on a still day:
slowly the first word
drifts west,
the last letters dissolve
on the tongue,
and what is left
is the pure blue
of insight, without cloud
or comfort.
Linda Pastan
Get hold of the main thing: That the world and the self are one and perfect. Only your attitude is faulty and needs readjustment.
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Instead of insight, maybe all a man gets is strength to wander for a while.
William Least Heat-Moon
The possibilities for creation and insight are endless. We’re constantly collecting more data, and it’s starting to be very relevant to our lives.
Aaron Koblin
My primary motivation for writing is to communicate my perceptions and insights into the human condition, in a way that may provide understanding, comfort, and company to others.
Vanna Bonta
Insight is not the same as scientific deduction, but even at that it may be more reliable than statistics.
Anthony Standen
That’s why I tell stories: to create readiness, to nudge the people toward receptive insight. In their present state they can stare till doomsday and not see it, listen till they’re blue in the face and not get it.
Eugene H. Peterson
You do not attain to knowledge by remaining on the shore and watching the foaming waves, you must make the venture and cast yourself in, you must swim, alert and with all your force, even if a moment comes when you think you are losing consciousness; in this way, and in no other, do you reach anthropological insight.
Martin Buber
I don’t ascribe to myself any special competence in economic insight. I translate what I hear from highly intelligent people into political and philosophical propositions.
Henry Kissinger
To secure approval one must remain within the bounds of conventional mediocrity. Whatever lies beyond, whether it be greater insight and virtue, or greater stolidity and vice, is condemned. The noblest men, like the worst criminals, have been done to death.
John Lancaster Spalding
Larry Geller’s Leaves of Elvis’ Garden is by far the best book I have ever read about Elvis.  It is emotional, revealing and spiritual, and offers the most amazing insight into the king.  I highly recommend this dynamic book.
Uri Geller
Be clear in your mind why learning to draw well is important. Drawing enables you to see in that special, epiphanous way that artists see, no matter what style you use to express your special insight. Your goal in drawing should be to encounter the reality of experience… to see ever more clearly, ever more deeply.
Betty Edwards
The creative man with an insight into human nature, with the artistry to touch and move people, will succeed. Without them he will fail.
William Bernbach
You the girl I been lookin’ for my whole life
God bless me, I’m glad I got the insight
Because of you girl, now I understand life
Puff Daddy
I still recommend reading travel guides as an insight to a traveller’s perspective on fantasy worlds. Nearly all characters end up travelling at some point, and they have many of the same needs and concerns covered in travel guides.
Trudi Canavan
Good leaders make sense of change in the world… then imparts that insight to the team.
Dan Pena
I think there’s room for everybody in Impact Wrestling. I think those veterans that come in, they do nothing but give the younger talent nothing but insight and lessons and to help the younger talent. They show them the way.
Rich Swann
Insight into soul-action, ability to discriminate the genuine from the sham and capacity to further one and discourage the other.
John Dewey
We have to have a special insight, or we’ll put it in the ‘too tough’ basket. All of you have to look for a special area of competency and focus on that.
Charlie Munger
I’ve always written in first person. It gives the readers more insight.
Sarah Dessen
In the age of revolution it is not knowledge that produces new wealth, but insight – insight into opportunities for discontinuous innovation. Discovery is the journey; insight is the destination. You must become your own seer.
Gary Hamel
I had gone through a near-death experience, and that gives you an insight into how fleeting life is, and what’s important.
Frank Serpico
Working with Timbaland, he gives me insight; he throws me different ways to approach the beat, and those extra tips go a long way. I know that he’s worked with some of the greats, so it’s just motivation. I feel inspired when we’re in the booth together.
In a world of disturbing images, the general body of photography is bland, dealing complacently with nature and treating our preconceptions as insights. Strange, private worlds rarely slip past our guard.
Henry Holmes Smith
Before I was reading science fiction, I read Hemingway. Farewell to Arms was my first adult novel that said not everything ends well. It was one of those times where reading has meant a great deal to me, in terms of my development – an insight came from that book.
Robert Reed
Understanding God’s great love for undeserving people such as us, gives us insight into His great majesty. As beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, so great love reveals the nature of the One who loves deeply.
Mike Bickle
Insight occurs just because it is high time.
Martin Grotjahn
Our moods and insights are transitory. This current is a flow of grace moving us to our right livelihood, companions, destiny.
Julia Cameron
Because IQ tests favor memory skills and logic, overlooking artistic creativity, insight, resiliency, emotional reserves, sensory gifts, and life experience, they can’t really predict success, let alone satisfaction.
Diane Ackerman
Facts are the enemy of truth.
Miguel de Cervantes
Art forms render ideas accessible to readers who could not receive those insights in any other format.
Sara Maitland
Build bridges of insight through empathy, see the world through the eyes of others, understand the world through their experiences, and feel the world through their emotions.
Tim Brown
The roads by which men arrive at their insights into celestial matters seem to me almost as worthy of wonder as those matters in themselves.
Johannes Kepler
Those we call saints rebelled against an outmoded and inadequate form of God on the basis of their new insights into divinity.
Rollo May
Adolescence is the time to enlarge the natural sentiments of pity, friendship, and generosity, the time to develop an understanding of human nature and the varieties of human character, the time to gain insight into the strengths and weaknesses of all men and to study the history of mankind.
Louise J. Kaplan
I’ve gained no wisdom, no insight, no mellowing. I would make all the same mistakes again, today.
Woody Allen
[Biblical counseling] Must insist that the image of God is central to developing a solid view of personality; that our sinfulness, not how we’ve been sinned against, is our biggest problem; that forgiveness, not wholeness, is our greatest need; that repentance, not insight, is the dynamic in all real change.
Dan B. Allender
Obedience to God’s will is the secret of spiritual knowledge and insight.
Eric Liddell
People who use LSD today know how to use it. Therefore, I hope that the health authorities will get the insight that LSD, if it is used properly, is not a dangerous drug. We actually should not refer to it as drug; this word has a very bad connotation. We should use another name.
Albert Hofmann
I don’t have any insight to Donald Trump that anyone else doesn’t.
Sam Seder
Breakthroughs happen when the insight comes that I can do something right now to improve things. I am constantly looking to do something to provide people with strategies to create those immediate breakthroughs. That’s my mission.
Tony Robbins
Art is about the spontaneous connection of the artist to his own unconscious – about insight beyond reason. If his insight were reasonable, anyone could do it, but anyone cannot. Only few can, and they are called.
David Mamet
The only debatable issue, it seems to me, is whether it is more ridiculous to turn to experts in social theory for general well-confirmed propositions, or to the specialists in the great religions and philosophical systems for insights into fundamental human values.
Noam Chomsky
Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge.
Charles Darwin
Science fiction, in its purest form, for me, it works the best when it’s being used as metaphor to look at something from a one-step-removed process, to give a little objectivity and insight into something that, if you were applying it on the face of it, we’d all be too close to.
Noah Wyle
To the artist is sometimes granted a sudden, transient insight which serves in this matter for experience. A flash, and where previously the brain held a dead fact, the soul grasps a living truth! At moments we are all artists.
Arnold Bennett
I had a little insight into life that most kids probably didn’t have. My mother was a schoolteacher, and my father was a social worker. Through his eyes I saw the underside of society.
Charles Kuralt
In my mind, declaring that an unfamiliar task will yield low-hanging fruit is almost always an admission that you have little insight about what you’re setting out to do.
Jason Fried
What the soul is doing is kind of walking through the forms, and so our experience of thinking isn’t normally this kind of pure intuitive insight that intellect gets, and that intellect must get right, because it’s always identical to its objects, it’s always the same as the forms that it’s thinking about.
Peter Adamson
Bob Harras’ personal and creative integrity is respected and renowned throughout the comic book industry. As an editor, he provides invaluable insight into storytelling and character.
Jim Lee
I have found that searching for insight is more often than not a path to total darkness
Andrew McMahon
I have come to rely on Ed Welch and others at CCEF for guidance and insight in better understanding the issues of the soul that plague many people today. For those who want to address more than just the symptoms of depression, Ed’s counsel is invaluable.
Bob Lepine
What we already know frames what we see, and what we see frames what we understand.
Paul Hawken
I’m always asking questions – not to find ‘answers,’ but to see where the questions lead. Dead ends sometimes? That’s fine. New directions? Interesting. Great insights? Over-ambitious. A glimpse here and there? Perfect.
Lesley Hazleton
I suppose what I like about Zen is that the teachers are constantly questioning your insight and challenging it, looking for sloppiness or laziness in it, and ways you can go past that.
David O. Russell
Empathy is the ultimate form of customer insight.
Don Peppers
I think women should have insight as to how men think. Just like men should have insight into how women think.
Michael Ealy
Becoming adept at the process of self inquiry and symbolic insight is a vital spiritual task that leads to the growth of faith in oneself.
Caroline Myss
Insight is not a lightbulb that goes off inside our heads. It is a flickering candle that can easily be snuffed out.
Malcolm Gladwell
I was really glad to meet Jane Clark because it did give me an insight. I couldn’t imagine what kind of woman she was. I was hugely impressed by her energy, straightforward nature and enthusiasm for life.
Jenny Agutter
My stories often begin with a situation or character rather than an insight about the human condition. It’s always been difficult for me to write from an abstract idea, no matter how interesting or compelling I feel the idea might be.
Karl Iagnemma
For the spiritual being, intuition is far more than a hunch. It is viewed as guidance or as God talking, and this inner insight is never taken lightly or ignored.
Wayne Dyer
There is not a single true work of art that has not in the end added to the inner freedom insight and life of each person who has known and loved it.
Albert Camus
Of course language is not an infallible guide, but it contains, with all its defects, a good deal of stored insight and experience.
C. S. Lewis
Understanding the psychology of changing norms starts from a simple insight: although we may wish to be perfectly rational and impartial, bias is an inescapable part of what it means to be human.
Maria Konnikova
To realize that our knowledge is ignorance, This is a noble insight. To regard our ignorance as knowledge, This is mental sickness. Only when we are sick of the sickness Shall we cease to be sick. The Sage is not sick, being sick of sickness; This is the secret of health.
Insight into universal nature provides an intellectual delight and sense of freedom that no blows of fate and no evil can destroy.
Alexander von Humboldt
The genius of Man in our time has gone into jet-propulsion, atom-splitting, penicillin-curing, etc. There is none left over for works of imagination; of spiritual insight or mystical enlightenment.
Malcolm Muggeridge
One of the key insights of the systems approach has been the realization that the network is a pattern that is common to all life. Wherever we see life, we see networks.
Fritjof Capra
Journalists immediately think of me as a resource for a quote or comment because they know that I will be available to offer fresh insight and meet their deadlines.
Marc Benioff
Heatstroke is an important and useful addition to the library on climate change, bringing insights from deep-time ecological research to help illuminate the dire forecasts of which we’re already so aware.
David Quammen
The central point of this final chapter is that – follow my logic carefully here – unless you die, you will continue to get older. (It’s insights like this that separate the professional book author from the person with a real job.)
Dave Barry
I have found that meditation has helped me with my academic career and has given me insights into musical composition and software design.
Frederick Lenz
… if one were to refuse to have direct, geometric, intuitive insights, if one were reduced to pure logic, which does not permit a choice among every thing that is exact, one would hardly think of many questions, and certain notions … would escape us completely.
Henri Lebesgue
This is the real power of habit: the insight that your habits are what you choose them to be.
Charles Duhigg
I like reading novels because it provides insight into human behavior.
Claire Danes
Whenever someone wonders how I could have written 57 books, I remind them that Isaac Asimov wrote 500 books. I like Asimov’s view that great insight comes from seeing something as odd and finding out why. Curiosity is the starting point for great science.
Philip Kotler
For honest insight into who you are, don’t ask yourself what your priorities are for next week. Ask what your priorities were last week.
Robert Reed
The identification of a population of olfactory sensory neurons innervating a single glomerulus that mediates robust avoidance to a naturally occurring odorant provides insight in the neural circuitry that underlies this innate behavior.
Richard Axel
The first act of insight is throw away the labels.
Eudora Welty
There can be few fields of human endeavor in which history counts for so little as in the world of finance.Past experience, to the extent that it is part of memory at all, is dismissed as the primitive refuge of the those who do not have insight to appreciate the incredible wonders of the present.
John Kenneth Galbraith
I explain at the parties that I believe knitting is a transformative and intriguing act that can change the life and brain of the person doing it, and that knitting is a perfect metaphor for life and insight into some better ways through it.
Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
Kitsch generates pseudonovelty with no new insight into reality, or else does not concern itself at all with the new and produces its effects with more or less academic eclecticism.
Hermann Broch
Many doctors are drawn to this profession (psychology) because they have an innate deficiency of insight into the motives, feelings and thoughts of others, a deficiency they hope to remedy by ingesting masses of data.
William S. Burroughs
If you have insight, you use your inner eye, your inner ear, to pierce to the heart of things, and have no need of intellectual knowledge.
It takes creativity at every stage to make the discontinuous leap from one level of knowledge to the next. These discontinuous leaps of understanding lead to insights that in turn lead to value creation.
John Kao
Ontario is fortunate to have the expertise, insight and leadership of The Honourable David C. Onley. I look forward to working with him to promote an inclusive, accessible Ontario that will help strengthen our province’s economy.
Brad Duguid
Religion is hard work. Its insights are not self-evident and have to be cultivated in the same way as an appreciation of art, music, or poetry must be developed.
Karen Armstrong
Truth is something which can’t be told in a few words. Those who simplify the universe only reduce the expansion of its meaning.
Anais Nin
We, as a league, we have not in any way changed our desire to do everything we can to make it safe, make it safe as to head injury. We hope and will support any data that would give us more insight into any short- and long-term consequences. We would support that.
Jerry Jones
I like reading novels because it provides insight into human behavior. I am really interested in feelings and think they are what define us as a species. When you really get it right in acting, it’s an act of empathy. You feel less distant from others, and that is really exciting.
Claire Danes
I aim to be translucent, so you don’t notice the words, just their meaning. I haven’t much insight into people’s motivations.
Ken Follett
History’s most treasured musicians were believed in and cultivated to reach their potential. Today, it would be difficult for those musicians to get deals. We have the insight and the tools to identify and bring to fruition the dormant talent that our artists possess.
Steve Vai
George Orwell is a pinnacle writer, for his combination of moral insight and literary writing.
Atul Gawande
Give me insight into today and you may have the antique and future worlds.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Golf gives you an insight into human nature, your own as well as your opponent’s.
Grantland Rice
A man of correct insight among those who are duped and deluded resembles one whose watch is right while all the clocks in the town give the wrong time.
Arthur Schopenhauer
Hexapodia as the key insight…I haven’t had a chance to see the famous video from Straumli Realm, except as an evocation. (My only gateway onto the Net is very expensive.) Is it true that humans have six legs?
Vernor Vinge
When you begin to see that your enemy is suffering, that is the beginning of insight.
Nhat Hanh
Nothing is more terrible than activity without insight.
Thomas Carlyle
We sent our user research team out to sit with customers for periods of time and get some insight into how Slack is working. We also get tens of thousands of points of contact via Twitter and our customer support ticketing system every month and can synthesize those results.
Stewart Butterfield
But the extraordinary insight which some persons are able to gain of others from indications so slight that it is difficult to ascertain what they are, is certainly rendered more comprehensible by the view here taken.
Charles Sanders Peirce
To understand another human being you must gain some insight into the conditions which made him what he is.
Margaret Bourke-White
What can this world offer comparable with that insight into spiritual things, that keen faith, that heavenly peace, that high sanctity, that everlasting righteousness, that hope of glory, which they have, who in sincerity love and follow our Lord Jesus Christ?
John Henry Newman
The characters get challenged. Through getting challenged, the character arrives at insights or discovers potentials that he or she didn’t know they had.
Eckhart Tolle
It’s great to get insight into the era of 80’s rock-n-roll via a treasure trove
of photographs skillfully captured in front of Mark Weiss’ camera lens. This
event is the perfect time capsule for Mark’s work finally being released
upon the masses in 2012.
Phil Collen
Life goes on and the truth changes; this just happens to be the way life is. What was once true is often no longer true just a little while later. Yesterday’s truth is today’s bullshit. Even yesterday’s liberating insight is today’s jail of stale explanation.
Brad Blanton
I love clothes so much. I feel like whatever I wear is an insight for other people to get to see who I am, or for me to portray how I’m feeling.
Dakota Johnson
For me, the goal of a reading is fundamentally to help the person get closure or insight, and so sharing negative information without any positive silver lining or any potential resolution is pointless.
Tyler Henry
Just as science is more immediate and exciting than the history of science, so is insight more compelling than a history of insight.
Robert D. Richardson

Rod Carew
Wherever you are is the entry point.
Science…is part and parcel of our knowledge and obscures our insight only when it holds that the understanding given by it is the only kind there is.
Carl Jung
I think a lot of young people have incredible ideas and incredible insights, but sometimes they wait before they go give their life to something. What I did was just to start a little earlier.
Elizabeth Holmes
‘Blessed are the poor in spirit, for they shall see God’ suggested to me a heavenly welfare program for the meek. Today that saying reveals an astute insight into egotism, about how those with swollen pride or vanity cannot see anything larger than themselves.
Huston Smith
There are some people who might have better technique than me, and some may be fitter than me, but the main thing is tactics. With most players, tactics are missing. You can divide tactics into insight, trust, and daring. In the tactical area, I think I just have more than most other players.
Johan Cruyff
I would like to have insights into things like government, all those big ideas that you brought up that I simply don’t have ideas about. I would like to be able to since so many people discuss them, but I don’t want to work at them. I don’t think my ambition is that strong in that direction.
Jasper Johns
It occurs to her that she should record this flash of insight in her journal – otherwise she is sure to forget, for she is someone who is always learning and forgetting and obliged to learn again.
Carol Shields
The secret of man’s success resides in his insight into the moods of people, and his tact in dealing with them.
J. G. Holland
By exhaustively examining one’s own mind,one may understand his nature.One who understands his own nature understands Heaven.
HELPED are those whose ever act is a prayer for harmony in the Universe, for they are the restorers of balance to our planet. To them will be given the insight that every good act done anywhere in the cosmos welcomes the life of an animal or a child.
Alice Walker
But this wealth of information produced little or no insight.
Stephen King
Good design is a great combination of common sense, unusual imagination, clarity of purpose–with a prerequisite knowledge of structure, values, color, aesthetic insight and a deep reverence for the love of life.
Millard Sheets
Insights don’t usually arrive at my desk, but go into notebooks when I’m on the move. Or half-asleep.
Hilary Mantel
This opens the door on another chapter of history.
Walter Cronkite

Warren Farrell
A moment’s insight is sometimes worth a life’s experience.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.
It doesn’t take much insight to realize that wars have been getting worse every time – worse from the point of view of the civilian, more and more destructive, more and more total.
Rene Girard
A huge insight was the power of simply telling employees the truth. If things aren’t going well, tell them.
David M. Cote
People sometimes are so confident in their flawed beliefs that they get stuck – fixated – and as a result are blinded to insights that are right in front of them.
Gary A. Klein
Organic life, we are told, has developed gradually from the protozoon to the philosopher, and this development, we are assured, is indubitably an advance. Unfortunately it is the philosopher, not the protozoon, who gives us this assurance.
Bertrand Russell
We think we learn from teachers, and we sometimes do. But the teachers are not always to be found in school or in great laboratories. Sometimes what we learn depends upon our own powers of insight.
Loren Eiseley
The popular mythology of creative genius depends on beloved stereotypes of the artist in youth and old age: the misunderstood upstart who forces us to see the world afresh; and the revered sage who shows us depths of insight attainable only through a lifetime of hard-won experience.
Martin Filler
If you never ask yourself any questions about the meaning of a passage, you cannot expect the book to give you any insight you do not already possess.
Mortimer Adler
Our hearts are being stretched to span the violence and the suffering in our lives and world, and at the same time we are also witness to so much magnificence and brilliance. We are a species that has produced nuclear weapons, and also one that has developed profound insight into the nature of life itself.
Marianne Williamson
Those who have obtained the farthest insight into Nature have been, in all ages, firm believers in God.
William Whewell
The history of science is full of revolutionary advances that required small insights that anyone might have had, but that, in fact, only one person did.
Isaac Asimov
Poetry saves what is human in this world going gaudy & insane. In exploring small truths, something larger might turn up, adding dimension, insight, vision, recognition to our lives. We just might be more complete, more aware after a poem.
Diane Glancy
I think every artist subconsciously wants to evolve themselves. Sometimes they get stuck in ruts because of pop culture, peer pressure, stuff like that. But what excites me most is exploring my own musical insights and expanding upon them.
Steve Vai
You get more insight as you get older, on everything. I kind of woke up one morning and was like, ‘Oh I see what’s happening, I get everything’. I woke up and was like, ‘I get it, I’m a product’.
Taylor Momsen
I feel like the one insight that’s extremely comforting to me about the world is that we all share the same pool of emotion that we draw from.
Abigail Washburn
I think I had a kind of pause for insight in my 20s when I wasn’t in a relationship and my career wasn’t going the way I wanted it to go. I had time for reflection then.
Ray Liotta
I think the most interesting parts of human experience might be the sparks that come from that sort of chipping flint of cultures rubbing against each other. And living on the border between Mexico and the U.S. for so many years gave me a lot of insight into that.
Barbara Kingsolver
Without the imaginative insight which goes with creative literature, history cannot be intelligibly written.
C. V. Wedgwood
At the heart of quantum mechanics is a rule that sometimes governs politicians or CEOs-as long as no one is watching, anything goes.
Lawrence M. Krauss
There are no easy words for the insights of the spirit, and approximate language used in good faith can cause approximate truths to spread like a disease.
Densey Clyne
You take the noise and put it in data information knowledge, and you get insight from that knowledge. How to execute the trade, the timing, sizing, long, short, and then you risk manage it.
Michael Hintze
One of the things that made me suffer no regret when I was called away from the cramped intellectual jail of atheism into a wider and more wonderful world, was my growing conviction that my fellow atheists were shallow, men without insight into real human nature.
John C. Wright
Trump has more understanding and insight than his opponents realize. For a man such as Trump to risk acquiring so many powerful enemies and to risk his wealth and reputation, he had to have known that the people’s dissatisfaction with the ruling establishment meant he could be elected president.
Paul Craig Roberts
If you’re a writer, the insight of other writers – if there’s some kind of Holy Grail message on how to deal with writer’s block or how to deal with any problem that can come up – whether you’re writing about yourself or a group of people, I find that very interesting.
Jim Rash
Objectivity is a subject’s delusion that observing can be done without him.
Heinz von Foerster
Meditation is to get insight, to get understanding and compassion, and when you have them, you are compelled to act.
Thich Nhat Hanh
The original insight is most likely to come when elements stored in different compartments of the mind drift into the open, jostle one another, and now and then form new combinations.
Eric Hoffer
The greatest ideas are the simplest.
William Golding
My prayer is to learn new things, imbibe fresh insights. You must not take life too seriously. You must enjoy the process of living.

With the help of AARP, our newest workshops will address the specific interests of customers 50 and over.
Robert Nardelli
Teaching has always been a very important part of my life. It is one of the ways I contribute to society. It is also a source of energy and insight.
Martha Nussbaum
Life is unnecessarily long. Moments of insight, of fine personal relation, a smile, a glance,–what ample borrowers of eternity they are!
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The most difficult task for anyone wandering through a foreign land with the hope of gaining some insight into it is the profound need to come to terms with the lives and thoughts of strangers.
Simon Winchester
Examining your behavior on social media could give you insight into your own personality as well as how others perceive you. You may think you’re presenting yourself in a certain light, only to discover other people view your behavior completely different.
Amy Morin
At one of the games I broadcast at Florida State a few years back, the mercury soared to 105 degrees, and you try attempting to look composed and professional, providing insight from the benches, while sweat pours into your eyes.
Suzy Shuster
Just as Mars – a desert planet – gives us insights into global climate change on Earth, the promise awaits for bringing back to life portions of the Red Planet through the application of Earth Science to its similar chemistry, possibly reawakening its life-bearing potential.
Buzz Aldrin
To understand ourselves and our life is the point of insight meditation: to understand and to be free.
Jack Kornfield
Everything is given by God. All talent, creativity, ability, insight, and strength comes from him. In our own strength we can do nothing.
Marvin J. Ashton
There is only one Art, whose sole criterion is the power, the authenticity, the revelatory insight, the courage and suggestiveness with which it seeks its truth.
Vaclav Havel
Metaphor is our mental root of imagination and language. Arnold Kozak offers fertile metaphors for growing your knowledge of the Buddhadharma. If you contemplate these brief stories, your emotional intelligence and mindfulness will develop effortlessly from the insights they provide.
Polly Young-Eisendrath
I wouldn’t have thought that a wrong theory should lead us to understand better the ordinary quantum field theories or to have new insights about the quantum states of black holes.
Edward Witten
The great conservative insight is that order is really hard to achieve. It’s really precious, and it’s really easy to lose.
Jonathan Haidt
Your goal, in other words, should be to make your bosses smarter, your team more effective, and the whole company more competitive because of your energy, creativity, and insights.
Jack Welch
Unless we regain the art of silence and insight, the ability for nonactivity, unless we substitute true leisure for our hectic amusements, we will destroy our culture and ourselves.
Josef Pieper
Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
Will Rogers
Marcus Buckingham has a keen sense of what it takes to excel, and he backs his insights with an impressive body of in-depth interviews and research. This is an important book for anybody who aspires to effective leadership, managing, or any kind of enduring individual achievement.
Richard M. Kovacevich
Hey, China – a little insight into how we American women think: We’re damn smart and we will willingly respond with emotion when presented with a set of facts.
Trish Regan
I have long admired Caroline Leavitt’s probing insight into people, her wit and compassion, her ability to find humor in dark situations, and conversely, her tenderness towards characters.
Dan Chaon
Inherently, each one of us has the substance within to achieve
whatever our goals and dreams define. What is different
for each of us is the training, education, knowledge and insight to utilize what we already have.
Mark Twain
Sometimes you have intuitive insight about how you think things are going to be, and you write that. Other times you fantasize completely, which has nothing to do with predicting the future.
Ray Bradbury
Like most artists and musicians, I considered myself detached from the political life. But I had an insight that maybe we would have a political contribution to make in the future.
Gilberto Gil
Dating is a social brain teaser, as it requires constantly changing ratios of intimacy and distance, an erotic mental cha-cha choreographed by chemistry, insight, and fear.
Marilyn Suzanne Miller
I come from a Christian faith. I am not going to give you insight into my particular beliefs.
Patricia Ireland
Schooling deprived of religious insights is wretched education.
Russell Kirk
Insight is ‘mental vision,’ one of the ways in which the mind escapes the limits of the obvious or the familiar.
Jennifer James
At Somerset I played with Marcus Trescothick who has spoken very openly about his battle with depression and anxiety. I had a few conversations with him about his problems but I also read his book which provided me with a great insight into what he went though.
Jos Buttler
I have to watch my language. I think a lot about the words I use in both the public environment and the dressing room. The language you use is a direct insight into how you are feeling.
Andrew Strauss
I’m involved in music and fashion a lot more than I used to be, so my style has definitely changed – for the better, of course. It’s given me greater insight into what colours work, what looks good on camera, and what I feel comfortable in.
Olly Murs
It would be better to be recognized first for music, but people go with what they like. If I’m here because I’m recognized more so as a style icon, then, if I’m smart enough, I will use this opportunity to share more insight about my music.
Countries all around the world, starting with the U.K., have started behavioural insight teams, often referred to as nudge units. And they seem to be doing lots of good.
Richard Thaler
One of the many interesting and surprising experiences of the beginner in child analysis is to find in even very young children a capacity for insight which is often far greater than that of adults.
Melanie Klein
People got insights into what was bothering them, but they hardly did a damn thing to change.
Albert Ellis
Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana
Groucho Marx
You know that your happiness and suffering depend on the happiness and suffering of others. That insight helps you not to do wrong things that will bring suffering to yourself and to other people.
Thich Nhat Hanh
I’ve lost a few notes on the top. But I’ve gained a little insight about what makes people comfortable when they’re listening or watching a performance of mine. It usually has to do with singing something that isn’t vocally too strenuous.
Johnny Mathis
I do think it is very important that the religious communities do try to bring their teachings and their insights to bear on the stem cell debate and on the debate about genetic engineering.
Michael Sandel
It fascinates me to analyze these things and, yes, to see layers in the texts and the building up of Biblical literature. I think this provides insights that one simply does not get by the direct approach.
Frank Moore Cross
Reading is exercise for our brains in the guise of pleasure. Books give us insight into other people, other cultures. They make us laugh. They make us think. If they are really good, they make us believe that we are better for having read them.
Karin Slaughter
Speed is often confused with insight. When I start running earlier than the others, I appear faster.
Johan Cruyff
a scientist or a writer is one who ruminates continuously on the nature of physical or imaginative life, experiences repeated relief and excitement when the insight comes, and is endlessly attracted to working out the idea.
Vivian Gornick
I enjoy art, architecture, museums, churches and temples; anything that gives me insight into the history and soul of the place I’m in. I can also be a beach bum – I like to laze in the shade of a palm tree with a good book or float in a warm sea at sundown.
Cherie Lunghi
I describe a soulmate as a ‘soul-nurturing mate’ – someone who nurtures your soul – thereby promoting insight and growth.
Karen Salmansohn

William Faulkner
One should have insight into this world of dreams that passes in the twinkling of an eye.
Hojo Shigetoki
We have a long way to go to understand that web analytics is a thinking man’s tool, not a solution unto itself. On the bright side, 73% of those surveyed might still figure out that web analytics can help them drive actionable insights one day.
Jim Sterne
Proximity is power. If you can get proximity with people that are the best in the world, things can happen because all of the people they know, the insights they have and the life experience they have. They can save you a decade of time by one insight.
Tony Robbins
Working in film, I’m sure you have insight into this, there’s something great that only comes by way of interactions with others that a monastic life does not afford.
John Maus
With surgical insight,В Inside MadelineВ delves into the most complex female territory imaginable and dissects until every honest bone is revealed. Bomer’s prose doesn’t flinch, doesn’t filter-the bravery of these stories left me breathless.
Alissa Nutting
There is a way to share an insight into your personal life without being classless, which is what I’m trying to do.
Sam Smith
I think the artistry is in having an insight into what one sees around them. Generally putting things together in a way no one else has before and finding a way to express that to other people who don’t have that insight.
Steve Jobs
Zen is the game of insight, the game of discovering who you are beneath the social masks.
Reginald Horace Blyth
To make any endeavor truly successful, integrity, inspiration, and insight are integral.
Jaggi Vasudev
For the classics philosophical insight was the product of a life of leisure; for me a life of leisure is the product of philosophical insight.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
No one can accuse Stuart Young of avoiding the big issues – with insight and verve, he tackles head on the existence of God, the mystery of human consciousness and the transformative effects of psychedelic drugs. Recommended.
Mark Chadbourn
What always seems miraculous is when aesthetic necessities yield an insight which otherwise I would have missed.
Susan Griffin
Mathematicians create by acts of insights and intuition. Logic then sanctions the conquests of intuition.
Morris Kline
Imagination is the means of deep insight and sympathy, the power to conceive and express images removed from normal objective reality.
William Wordsworth
Curiosity is the greatest source of ideas, retail revolutions, and insights.
Michael J. Silverstein
Our most consequential human problems will be resolved, not through competition, but collaboration… what we need in education is a learning climate in which students work together. In such an atmosphere, truth emerges as authentic insights are conscientiously exchanged.
Ernest L. Boyer
China has many successful entrepreneurs and business people. I hope that more people of insight will put their talents to work to improve the lives of poor people in China and around the world, and seek solutions for them.
Bill Gates
One can always learn from others. The Champion’s Mind holds a wealth of insight as to how you can become a winner in your everyday life.
Phil Mahre
I wrote the book not to prove people wrong but just to get the insight on who I am as a person.
Terrell Owens
The description of the world that most people have is very limited. They are in the fog. Once in a while a genuine insight comes through.
Frederick Lenz
I like to draw from experiences in my past, but that alone is quite hard and complicated, because I don’t want to say anything incriminating or too offensive, but I want to give people an insight into my life and how it was.
AJ Tracey
If you are looking at data over and over you better be taking away valuable insight every time. If you are constantly looking at data that isn’t leading to strategic action stop wasting your time and look for more Actionable Analytics.
Thomas Carlyle
Heaven will be inherited by every man who has heaven in his soul.
Henry Ward Beecher
Change will lead to insight far more often than insight will lead to change.
Milton H. Erickson
J.P. Donleavy – now he’s one writer I am consistent with. He’s written books that I can definitely connect with. He has amazing insights which other people missed out on. Even with his descriptions of Northern Ireland.
Van Morrison
I’m interested in the spirits of people. In the theatre, there’s the acting part of acting – and I’m not saying that can’t be great – and there’s the essence. To explore that essence, you need a key, a look, a gesture, an insight that unlocks the person’s soul.
Ralph Fiennes
It [MDMA] takes away the feelings of self-hatred and condemnation, which are the biggest obstacles to insight… For reasons we don’t understand, MDMA allows people to do this, typically in one [psychotherapeutic] session.
Ann Shulgin
Deep insight will always, like Nature, ultimate its thought in a thing.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
When Caesar says, ‘Do this’, it is performed.
William Shakespeare
It is not because the truth is too difficult to see that we make mistakes… we make mistakes because the easiest and most comfortable course for us is to seek insight where it accords with our emotions – especially selfish ones.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
When you know the lyrics to a tune, you have some kind of insight as to it’s composition. If you don’t understand what it’s about, you’re depriving yourself of being really able to communicate this poem.
Dexter Gordon
