Mark Zuckerberg

When this song come on, I’m spending money…Play something I can spend some money to.
Wiz Khalifa
When you say: The simple truth is this, and then you pause, and then you finish the sentence, people stop, and they think specifically about what you’re saying. And it’s, in essence, trying to boil it down to something that’s very understandable and meaningful.

Marsha Blackburn
We don’t live. We’re miming in the choir.

Tom Perez
I did 75 films. I didn’t take a break; I didn’t spend my money. I have my savings, so when you’re not working for money anymore, then you should find things that are meaningful and not just be like, ‘OK, that’s another day gone.’

Alice Hoffman
The voice of parents is the voice of gods, for to their children they are heaven’s lieutenants.
William Shakespeare
My freedom will be so much the greater and more meaningful the more narrowly I limit my field of action and the more I surround myself with obstacles.

June Diane Raphael
It is no accident that this homeplace, as fragile and as transitional as it may be, a makeshift shed, a small bit of earth where one rests, is always subject to violation and destruction.

Bell Hooks
When I talk, it’s meaningful. It’s useful. I don’t just talk to talk.

Bill Gates
The capitalist culture of consumption… does not provide meaningful sustenance for large numbers of people.
Cornel West
The corner of the ‘food media’ that I think is troublesome to me is the shows on TV that don’t really have a point or don’t have a lesson to be learned. If you don’t have a point, or if there’s not some part of it that is meaningful and can change someone’s life, in my old age, I’m just not into it.

A useless life is an early death.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
There’s a lot of music out there that’s like, ‘I’m so mad! I’m sad! I’m into skulls and crossbones and the color black,’ and that’s just meaningless and shallow. So much of metal is about that and it’s hard to find metal that is substantial and meaningful in terms of its content.
Phil Elverum
Do what you want, if it is something you did regret the next day, sleep in late.
Wiz Khalifa
I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
Marilyn Monroe
Each one of us is responsible for the whole of humankind. We need to think of each other really as brothers and sisters and to be concerned for each other’s welfare.

Dalai Lama
Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living.

David Milch
Death is profoundly meaningful. Discovering what it is in itself we will know the secret of life.
Samael Aun Weor

Mike Gallagher
We must shift the energy policy debate in America with an increased focus on alternative and renewable fuels and Congress must pass meaningful alternative fuels and incentive programs to help move the U.S. away from dependence on foreign oil.
Rick Renzi

Zig Ziglar
Dedicate some of your life to others. Your dedication will not be a sacrifice. It will be an exhilarating experience because it is an intense effort applied toward a meaningful end.

In software, we rarely have meaningful requirements. Even if we do, the only measure of success that matters is whether our solution solves the customer’s shifting idea of what their problem is.
Jeff Atwood
After all these years, I am still involved in the process of self-discovery. It’s better to explore life and make mistakes than to play it safe. Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life.
Sophia Loren
As a novelist, I mined my history, my family and my memory, but in a very specific way. Writing fiction, I never made use of experiences immediately as they happened. I needed to let things fester in my memory, mature and transmogrify into something meaningful.
Ayelet Waldman
The solo years have been more meaningful to the audiences than the Smiths years, but the press in England only write about me in relation to the Smiths era.
I think reality TV now needs a big kick up the a – to get creative and be meaningful, I think. Otherwise, people are becoming famous for having no talent, based on pure exposure. That’s the grating part.
Gordon Ramsay
You may be somebody who writes best for a small press that doesn’t pay very well, but you might have a fascinating and intricate style that might not appeal to as many readers but will be incredibly meaningful to the readers you have. Truly, that’s as wonderful if not more wonderful.
Alice Mattison
Hopefully, the people that would look at a Good Charlotte record and dismiss it for maybe what they think is a certain kind of content, if they do discover something meaningful, then it’s a nice surprise. I like those kinds of contradictions.
Benji Madden
A free society is regarded as one that does not engage, on principle, in attempting to control what people find meaningful, and a totalitarian society is regarded as one that does, on principle, attempt such control.
Michael Polanyi
It’s a brilliant song! C’mon…’Every day is like survival. You’re my lover, not my rival.’ What could be more meaningful than that? (Jesse)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Just making the crowd laugh is not really doing things for me anymore. That’s just knowing how to kill; I’ve learned how to kill – but also learned when a crowd’s laughter is meaningful.
Patrice O’Neal
I’m not an economist, but I have spent time around thousands of small-business owners and investors, and I remain skeptical – despite the best intentions of the Fed – that even lower interest rates can make a meaningful dent in our unemployment problem.
John Delaney
How your social network – the people that you know, or in your community – understand or value a work can be… a tremendously relevant indicator of how important or meaningful it’s going to be to you.
David Weinberger
Retire from your job but never from meaningful projects. If you want to live a long life, you need eustress, that is, a deep sense of meaning and of contribution to worthy projects and causes, particularly, your intergenerational family.
Stephen Covey
The silence between two notes is as beautiful and meaningful as the notes themselves.
Joseph Curiale
Some people like to paint trees. I like to paint love. I find it more meaningful than painting trees.
Robert Indiana
A long, healthy, and happy life is the result of making contributions, of having meaningful projects that are personally exciting and contribute to and bless the lives of others.
Stephen Covey
Just as the good life is something beyond the pleasant life, the meaningful life is beyond the good life.
Martin Seligman
If you try and kind of focus on hope, but you know what it’s like to be in the dark, then hope is more meaningful.
To love well is the task in all meaningful relationships, not just romantic bonds.
Bell Hooks
I like to do meaningful tattoos and it’s for myself and not the world. My tattoos are private.
Daisy Shah
I need to feel like the work I’m doing is not necessarily important, but meaningful, at least to me, because otherwise it just becomes a day job. It just becomes factory work and I get really frustrated.
Alan Ball
Competition in its best form is a test of self. It has nothing to do with medals. The winner is the person who gets the most out of themselves.
Al Oerter
I think I’m one of the most patriotic people that I’ve ever encountered in America. I consider myself a bedrock patriot. I participate very actively in local politics, because my voice might be worthwhile. I participate in a meaningful way – not by donations; I work at it.
Hunter S. Thompson
Life is difficult. Not just for me or other ALS patients. Life is difficult for everyone. Finding ways to make life meaningful and purposeful and rewarding, doing the activities that you love and spending time with the people that you love – I think that’s the meaning of this human experience.
Steve Gleason
…the single most important issue in all of life (is) your relationship with the living God… how you can know Him in a personal and meaningful way.
Charles R. Swindoll
Focusing on one thing without interruption is how you get meaningful work done.
Nate Green
You’ve got to say ‘yes’ to your destiny. Life’s happening right now, look around you. There goes some life. Come on, Mamma, live!
Dave Chappelle
What one thing can you start counting today that will actually be meaningful in your life?
Chip Conley
Meaningful work is within your grasp.
Dan Miller
My inspiration came especially in the 1950s through the Vienna Group founded by writer H.C. Artmann. It showed me that if you want to say something, you have to let the language itself say it, because language is usually more meaningful than the mere content that one wishes to convey.
Elfriede Jelinek
God isn’t trying to make our lives easier; He wants to make them more meaningful.
Bob Goff
Auctions create greater price discovery and liquidity, resulting in a very meaningful final auction price. If you were building a securities exchange today, an auction would be a core feature.
Tyler Winklevoss
It doesn’t matter if you have a D, or an I or an R after your name if you have a job – a J-O-B. It really matters to people that they have an opportunity to contribute to their economy in a very meaningful way, and this is outside party lines. So we believe that these are the solutions that America is craving.
Sher Valenzuela
I have started or run several companies and spent time with dozens of entrepreneurs over the years. Virtually none of them, in my experience, made meaningful personnel or resource-allocation decisions based on incentives or policies.
Andrew Yang
I’m psyched about what I can contribute that can be meaningful to myself and to others.
Bob Saget
Instead of telling the world what you’re eating for breakfast, you can use social networking to do something that’s meaningful.
Edward Norton
When someone close to you dies, the line is shifted really drastically about what is meaningful and what isn’t.
Phil Elvrum
As time goes by the memories of sitting on the edge of a bed and reading aloud with your kid are going to be very meaningful in your own mental scrapbook.
Gary Ross
A warrior feeds his body well; he trains it; works on it. Where he lacks knowledge, he studies. But above all he must believe. He must believe in his strength of will, of purpose, of heart and soul.
David Gemmell
Our life is a manifestation, and we can very well make that manifestation beautiful and meaningful and have a good influence.
Nhat Hanh
We have to get the word out that mental illnesses can be diagnosed and treated, and almost everyone suffering from mental illness can live meaningful lives in their communities.
Rosalynn Carter
I look forward to meaningful roles that provide me an opportunity to perform, even if I appear only in a couple of scenes.
I pretty much ignored politics all through my 20’s and 30’s… I had other things on my mind… the band, finding a meaningful relationship, getting enough money to eat and pay the rent.
Mark Edwards
I care deeply about anyone who listens to my music. That’s a sacred connection between the artist and the person who appreciates what you do – it’s beyond words how meaningful that is. But I’m not going to stifle myself from trying new things because I feel like people that are already into my stuff might not like it.
Mark McGwire
I think a lot of people assume from my music and stuff I’m constantly talking about deep and meaningful things, but then with my friends I’m just a class clown.
Ella Henderson
A good game gives us meaningful accomplishment – clear achievement that we don’t necessarily get from real life. In a game, you’ve beaten level four, the boss monster is dead, you have a badge, and now you have a super laser sword. Real life isn’t like that, right?
Jesse Schell
I knew I wanted to be a fashion writer but didn’t want to contribute to the over-saturated market unless I could contribute in a meaningful way.
Leandra Medine
My own belief is that rather than getting involved in trying to change the reality of social-political things, creators can be involved in and express in different ways and be meaningful in different ways, so for me, it’s important to leave messages to people of the future and to be engaged with the people now.
Takashi Murakami
Nine different people gathered and became like a family. To me, it is a very meaningful tie.
Im Yoona
I feel much more emotion than I did before, and more meaningful emotion and richer emotion than when I was manic. I’m able to experience meaningful things that can only be experienced when I’m stable, like a family.
Paul Dalio
The quality of a timeless song is that it’s catchy, meaningful and relatable.
Live your life to the fullest.
The free society does not guarantee virtue, any more than it guarantees happiness. But it allows for the pursuit of both, a pursuit rendered all the more meaningful and profound because success is not guaranteed, it has to be won through personal striving.
Dinesh D’Souza
Kind words do not cost much. They never blister the tongue or lips. They make other people good-natured. They also produce their own image on men’s souls, and a beautiful image it is.
Blaise Pascal
I have developed my most meaningful relationships online. None of them live within driving distance. None of them are about my own age.
Aaron Swartz
In the financial world it tends to be misleading to state, “There is no free lunch.” Rather the more meaningful comment is, “Somebody has to pay for lunch.”
Martin J. Whitman
It doesn’t matter if you’re black, white, gay, straight, come from different countries, different language… every single person is significant and is meaningful.
Michael Franti
Our approach in Louisiana has been to build meaningful partnerships that attract the leading employers of the future in a way that grows our economy and provides our people with outstanding career opportunities.
John Bel Edwards
In 1946, Oxford University in England was offered large funds to create a new Institute of Human Nutrition. The University refused the funds on the ground that the knowledge of human nutrition was essentially complete, and that the proposed institution would soon run out of meaningful research projects.
Rene Dubos
If you’re doing a good job as author, then you get the reader to engage in whatever speculation might be called for. And it’s much more meaningful for the reader, if he or she comes up with the questions.
Russell Freedman
I was a very driven person, wanting to help and to do good, hopefully to write and teach in a meaningful way – wanting to make change. And I discovered humbly that life was changing me.
Mark Nepo
Within the scientific community, there is healthy skepticism. And the question is, ‘How do you ever get to a meaningful null result? How long and how hard do SETI scientists have to look for extraterrestrial intelligence and find nothing before they say, ‘There is nothing. We are alone.’
Debra Fischer
My passion for others and my experience as an actor and citizen of the world has naturally shaped me into a social and political activist who finds fulfillment from their work with meaningful organizations.
Sufe Bradshaw
Will Rogers became the biggest, most popular, and highest-paid star of every existing media of his time. The biggest star America ever produced. What is even more remarkable, the things he said and wrote remain as relevant and meaningful today as they did 60 and 70 years ago.
Tommy Tune
Nothing is meaningful except surrendering to love. Do it.
To provide meaningful architecture is not to parody history but to articulate it.
Daniel Libeskind
As I went between the Islamic Society in my college and university, the mosque, the halal takeaway, and visited the homes of my male Muslim friends, it was entirely possible for me to get through my day without interacting in any meaningful way with a single non-Muslim.
Maajid Nawaz
The thing is to try to do as much as you can in the time that you have.
Kenneth More
I wish I was the kind of writer who would go to a war zone and write about something that’s meaningful and important to people, but that’s not my area of coverage.
Jonathan Ames
The Bhagavad-Gita is a true scripture of the human race a living creation rather than a book, with a new message for every age and a new meaning for every civilization.
Sri Aurobindo
Love the giver more than the gift.
Brigham Young
Of course, there [in China] has to be chaos. It has to be crazy, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong about it except this government, which is really incapable of doing anything meaningful.
Ai Weiwei
Silence is the foundation of truth. Words are most meaningful when they emerge from silence and when they are received by a quiet mind.
Ken Cohen
The Athens Olympics will be meaningful even though I cannot participate as an athlete, since I can participate in the flame relay all over the world.
Cathy Freeman
How do we create beauty in a broken world? How do we create a view of sustainability in an economy that is crashing? How do we reconfigure our lives, how do we pick up the pieces and create a meaningful life? So, yes, we have a different form of leadership but the questions remain the same.
Terry Tempest Williams
Many people are going to use [Beijing National Stadium], which makes it more meaningful. If we don’t design it, somebody else has to design it.
Ai Weiwei
Our job is not to dictate the policies of our candidates or even influence them but simply to articulate them in the most clear and meaningful way to the relevant audience.
Alexander Nix
Men for the sake of getting a living forget to live.
Margaret Fuller
I had some great music teachers who were men, but I think there’s something about having these master teachers who were women in my life. That’s very meaningful to me and you see it in my work. I write a lot about matriarchs and the pain of it, the beauty of it, the burden of it, the love of it.
Quiara Alegria Hudes
The worst feeling is pretending you do not care about something, when really it is all you seem to think about.Do not date the most beautiful girl in the world, date the girl that makes your world the most beautiful.
Wiz Khalifa
C being what it is lacks support for multiple return values, so the notion that it is meaningful to pass pointers to memory objects into which any random function may write random values without having a clue where they point, has not been debunked as the sheer idiocy it really is.
Erik Naggum
It took me a while to accept everything, but I am so grateful for the way my parents raised me. It’s my life, it’s unique, and I think it’s so meaningful to me as I get older.
Karen Bardsley
When our young people can find meaningful work, we all benefit. This youth jobs strategy would help connect youth with careers they can build on and equip them with the skills they need to thrive in today’s global economy.
Kathleen Wynne
I’m 60 years of age. That’s 16 Celsius.
George Carlin
Success is good, but I have seen the other side. I don’t think much about it. I just work towards making a good melody, with catchy yet meaningful lyrics, and as I’m a music producer and arranger myself, I know the sound I need.
Amaal Mallik
The truth is, if what we choose to do with our lives won’t make a story meaningful, it won’t make a life meaningful either.
Donald Miller
The Black Lives Matter National Network and the movement at large are sophisticated. We’re not easily won over by talking points and campaign trail pledges. We want to see meaningful collaboration and a genuine transformation of American democracy.
Patrisse Cullors
It’s so hard for cool people these days. They just don’t want us to be hip.
Wiz Khalifa
Love makes every space sacred and every moment meaningful . . .
Barbara De Angelis
Those moments when you don’t feel self-conscious, when you escape that, are when you produce something meaningful.
Felicity Jones
For life to be meaningful, you must have a challenge.
Roma Downey
Not knowing how near the truth is, we seek it far away.
Hakuin Ekaku
Ordinary language carries with it conditions of meaning which it is easy to recognize by classifying the contexts in which the expression is employed in a meaningful manner.
Paul Ricoeur
The meaning of life is to live a meaningful life.
Bill Phillips
There’s not a drug on earth can make life meaningful
Sarah Kane
I think anybody who has had a long relationship and has had a really hard time letting go, wants to feel like it’s not all for naught, and it’s meaningful, because it makes you who you are.
Rashida Jones
This is a brief life, but in its brevity it offers us some splendid moments, some meaningful adventures.
Rudyard Kipling
The joy is in creating, not maintaining.
Vince Lombardi
The simple act of saying ‘thank you’ is a demonstration of gratitude in response to an experience that was meaningful to a customer or citizen.
Simon Mainwaring
As we reach midlife in the middle thirties or early forties, we are not prepared for the idea that time can run out on us, or for the startling truth that if we don’t hurry to pursue our own definition of a meaningful existence, life can become a repetition of trivial maintenance duties.
Gail Sheehy
My freedom will be so much the greater and more meaningful, the more narrowly I limit my field of action and the more I surround myself with obstacles.
Richard Diebenkorn
The fastest way to disengage an employee is to tell him his work is meaningful only because of the paycheck.
Shawn Achor
Our lives are the only meaningful expression of what we believe and in Whom we believe. And the only real wealth, for any of us, lies in our faith.
Gordon B. Hinckley
What is important is to see how we can best lead a meaningful everyday life, how we can bring about peace and harmony in our minds, how we can help contribute to society.
Dalai Lama
To do meaningful work is to contribute – to create value in society.
Charles Koch
Study strategy over the years and achieve the spirit of the warrior. Today is victory over yourself of yesterday; tomorrow is your victory over lesser men.
Miyamoto Musashi
You know you’ve reached true success the day you become truly humble. That’s the day you stop needing to prove to the world – and yourself – that you’ve accomplished something meaningful.
Naveen Jain
Instead of always asking yourself why so-and-so acts this or that way, learn to ask: “What’s inside of me that wants to hurt itself over how anyone else acts?”
Guy Finley
I lost the person I intended to keep.
Wiz Khalifa
While I think storytelling is a meaningful way to spend your life… it does feel a little bit secondary or off-point.
David Simon
It is weight that gives meaning to weightlessness.
Isamu Noguchi
You get into the biggest fights with the people you care about the most, because they are the relationships you’re willing to fight for.
Wiz Khalifa
We have to consciously build the elements of a world based on a culture of peace and disarmament. This is a task for everyone. It is multidimensional in scope, requiring meaningful participation of people at all levels.
Widad Akrawi
I’ve actually done more [music for] films than television. I love the process of writing for a film. I love that you are creating this suite of music for a film, that’s all tied together sonically and thematically and hopefully people associate with the film. They all are meaningful to me in different ways.
Jeff Cardoni
If you think of the ideas of open source applied to information in an encyclopedia, you get to Wikipedia – lots and lots of small contributions that bubble up to something that’s meaningful.
Matt Mullenweg
The love within us is meant to extend outward. The closer we grow to our inner light, we feel a natural urge to share it. We all long for meaningful work, some creative endeavor that will be our ministry, by which the energies within us might flow out to help heal the world.
Marianne Williamson
Any story worth telling relates to real life in some meaningful way. Scifi allows you to tell meaningful stories without seeming too preachy – it adds a metaphorical layer between the story and the real world. Scifi is dismissed as ungrounded fluff, but it’s actually the opposite.
Jane Espenson
If you don’t go when you want to go, when you do go, you’ll find you’ve gone.
Anthony Hopkins
We can never know what might have been but what is to come is another matter entirely
C. S. Lewis
It takes time–loose, unstructured dreamtime– to experience nature in a meaningful way. Unless parents are vigilant, such time becomes a scarce resource, not because we intend it to shrink, but because time is consumed by multiple, invisible forces; because our culture currently places so little value on natural play.
Richard Louv
Deep human connection is … the purpose and the result of a meaningful life – and it will inspire the most amazing acts of love, generosity, and humanity.
Melinda Gates
More meaningful cinema is being made, and that is the reason why you see a rejuvenated Malayalam film industry. But more films aimed at youth are needed.
Freedom of speech implies the world isn’t defined. It is meaningful when people are allowed to see the world their way.
Ai Weiwei
Focus on the highest, clearest, and most meaningful teaching you can find, and let all else go.
Alan Cohen
Writing should be meaningful for children, Y an intrinsic need should be aroused in them, and Y writing should be incorporated into a task that is necessary and relevant.
Lev S. Vygotsky
The Chinese public is deeply nationalist, which matters to China’s unelected political leadership as much as U.S. nationalism does to American politicians. As China becomes the world’s largest economy, there is meaningful public pressure for its power status to advance in parallel. Any alternative would be humiliating.
Noah Feldman
In terms of leadership, you’ve got to allow for people to be amazing and to contribute in a way that’s meaningful. You can’t hold on so tight that people don’t get a chance to do what they do best.
Nahnatchka Khan
I get the most gratification in life by feeling like I’m doing something purposeful and meaningful and makes a difference to other people, and that comes with its pros and cons. I’ve accepted this is the kind of person that I am, and this is the path I’ve chosen in life – and I’m stickin’ with it.
Steve Grand
I find great beauty in songs with a creative interpretation, but most people generally don’t get that, and go for the simple songs, but I prefer something a bit more complicated, which is more meaningful to the creator.
Irwin Thomas
That’s one of the best things about my job: I get to tell the world about the innovative and meaningful things our people are doing every day.
Doug McMillon
At fifteen, my mind was bent on learning.
At thirty, I stood firm.
At forty, I had no doubts.
At fifty, I knew the decrees of Heaven.
At sixty, my ear was receptive to truth.
At seventy, I could follow my heart’s desires without sin.
There is, however, a change going on in the world. There’s far more interest in drawing now than there has been in a long, long time. Schools are beginning to teach drawing again in a serious and meaningful way.
Leonard Baskin
It’s not just that the lows make the highs more meaningful. They actually help you figure stuff out. You have to work out where you went wrong and what you need to do to get better.
Owen Farrell
What happens, matters. Maybe only to us but it matters.
Tea Leoni
To me thin people never had any meaningful problems.
Dorothy Cannell
The pessimism of the intellect is the starting point for struggle. It’s not the end point, it’s the starting point. You have to make something critical to make it meaningful, to make it transformative.
Henry Giroux
We all have our own karma and so different teachers will be meaningful to different students.
Tenzin Palmo
There is Harlan Ellison the human being, who takes a crap a couple of times a day, and who farts, and who eats chicken croquettes, if I can find them. And then there is the writer, this writer-person, who is a much finer person than I. Much more orderly, much more meaningful. Worthier, than I [am].
Harlan Ellison
There is a tension between parliamentary and popular sovereignty. A lively, meaningful democracy would achieve a balance between the two.
George Monbiot
The world can only change from within.
Eckhart Tolle
When we learn to deal directly with our complaints and difficulties, romanticized ideas about the spiritual path are no longer meaningful. We see that what is important is to take responsibility for ourselves, and to always be aware of our thoughts, feelings, and actions.
Tarthang Tulku
I really like trying to find the roles that are actually really meaningful to me.
Mia Wasikowska
I can’t deny that Jerry Springer supposedly beating us didn’t affect me. There was a point where I felt like, Golly, you work so hard, you try so hard and the people say they want meaningful television and then Jerry Springer ends up beating you. It was disturbing.
Oprah Winfrey
When you don’t pray, the devil rides ya when ya sleep
Lil Boosie
It feels great pleasure and honour to be associated with a film like ‘Gold.’ I have always believed in meaningful cinema, and this movie was one such opportunity.
Nikita Dutta
The longer I go about living, I see it’s the relationship that is most meaningful.
William Shatner
The only way to atone for the past is to do something meaningful in the present.
Deepak Chopra
If you can’t be psyched about your own thoughts, then how are you supposed to have a meaningful interaction with anyone?
Angel Olsen
You never know that the things you’re doing are that meaningful to society.
Jack Ma
As a songwriter who uses lyrics to connect with others, it made perfect sense for me to partner with Hallmark, the leading greeting card brand that also uses words to help people make meaningful connections.
Cody Simpson
Sometimes it’s easier to pretend that you don’t care, than to admit it’s killing you.
Wiz Khalifa
From my point of view, I’d like to bring other meaningful events through WWE, whether that’s NXT or the United Kingdom championships, taking international brands and putting them on in those markets.
Triple H
Meaningful innovation can be an important catalyst in encouraging resilience in seniors, keeping them independent and engaged.
Frans van Houten
Technology should be used to create unforgettable experiences that enhance our natural and built environments, transforming them in newly meaningful ways.
David Rockwell
There is no right or wrong behavior. The only meaningful choice is between fear and love.
Gerald Jampolsky
Music is the love of my life. It’s a total escape from reality. Music transports you to another place, someplace unexpecet and meaningful.
Miley Cyrus
I think it’s because we’re looking for the meaning. Where is the meaning? We have mindless jobs, we take frantic vacations, deficit finance trips to the mall to buy more things that we think are going to fill these holes in our lives. Is it any wonder that we’ve lost our sense of direction?
Matthew McConaughey
The reality is that every human being is placed on this planet, and one of the things that drives humans is their need for meaning, and if you can make every job meaningful, then you will guarantee that every job will be done to its highest level of excellence.
Erwin McManus
So, transform yourself first… Because you are young and have dreams and want to do something meaningful, that in itself, makes you our future and our hope. Keep expanding your horizon, decolonize your mind, and cross borders.
Yuri Kochiyama
Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.
Winston Churchill
For me, ideology is defined only by how the coordinates of your meaningful experience of the world, and your place within society, relate to the basic tensions and antagonisms of social orders.
Slavoj ЕЅiЕѕek
Nothing meaningful or lasting comes without working hard at it.
Rick Pitino
John Macmurray
No tree becomes rooted and sturdy unless many a wind assails it. For by its very tossing it tightens its grip and plants its roots more securely; the fragile trees are those that have grown in a sunny valley.
Seneca the Younger
I have tried very hard to find meaning in what I do, but I have found instead a vast and limitless nothingness. I tried to embrace the nothingness, but it slipped through my grasp, and now there is nothing where the nothingness was. This may sound meaningful, but it isn’t.
John S. Hall
You don’t need to go all deep and meaningful and start talking about Daddies. It’s yes or no answer.
Carl Froch
I made a vow to myself while I was a hostage that if I were lucky enough to live and to get out of Somalia, I would do something meaningful with my life – and specifically something that would be meaningful in the country where I’d lost my freedom.
Amanda Lindhout
We’re all making castles in the sand, wonderful tapestries, an exquisite corpse. But is it meaningful? No. It’s dogs barking. It doesn’t mean anything beyond our yelping, at the pain of being alive.
Ariel Pink
The essence of interior design will always be about people and how they live. It is about the realities of what makes for an attractive, civilized, meaningful environment, not about fashion or what’s in or what’s out. This is not an easy job.
Albert Hadley
Staying connected to the game and working for ESPN are very meaningful to me.
Steve Young
The quicker we can transfer our online connections to offline ones, the more meaningful social media becomes; rather than just leaving them there and chatting to people. So I really believe in the transfer of online to offline and I think that can make a huge impact.
Jay Shetty
Controversy is what mediocre people start because they can’t communicate anything meaningful.
G. Willow Wilson
I think spiritualism, mesmerism, the mental healing movement, provided some people with the most meaningful experiences of their lives.
Mitch Horowitz
The truth is that things matter. They have to, they are what we live with and touch each and every day. They represent what we’ve seen, who we’ve loved and where we hope to go next. They remind us of the good times and the rough patches and everything in between that’s made us who we are.
Nate Berkus
My time with my father would be very meaningful, but also very short.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan
Don’t freak yourself out by what other people have. They don’t have what you’ve got.
Simon Sinek
Meeting people in a genuine way and feeling like there is a vital and meaningful connection going on makes me come alive.
Sharon Salzberg
I’m grateful that as part of the Ernie Ball family, I’m able to connect with my fans in such a meaningful way and hopefully inspire guitar players to up their game!
John Petrucci
The world is in trouble. Many have prayed. God sent help. God sent you.
Marianne Williamson
There is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
Alan Cohen
I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.
Olivia Wilde
I can’t hang out for roles but if something meaningful comes my way I don’t say no.
Amala Akkineni
Iraq has not been disarmed 100 percent [but] in terms of what they [Iraqis] have accomplished there are no meaningful weapons or weapons production capability in Iraq today.
Scott Ritter
Intel has been my second family. It is an amazing company that has changed the way people live their lives, and I am proud to have contributed to that in a meaningful way.
Renee James
Must the mistakes of history be endlessly repeated? Granting PNTR to China will strengthen the hand of hard-liners, by telling the regime that America will never do anything meaningful to counter its aggression.
Don Feder
I think it’s possible to bag substantial roles in meaningful cinema despite being a mother. My role in Yagavarayinum ‘ is the best example.
Richa Pallod
If grandparents want to have a meaningful and constructive role, the first lesson they must learn is that becoming a grandparent is not having a second chance at parenthood!
Eda LeShan
People talk about, ‘Well, why don’t they bring ‘Growing Pains’ back?’ No, it belongs in the time capsule exactly where it was. It would probably look corny and dated if they tried to redo that. But I think, for its time, it was meaningful.
Alan Thicke
Wonder is the beginning of wisdom.
To be honest, we donate to projects that we think are meaningful. How society views it or how we are viewed by history, well, we’ll let them decide. How others view us is out of our control.
Ronnie Chan
My job as an author – at least the way I think of it – is to make a story that is coded and puzzling enough to entice conversation and interpretation, but also to do the opposite: to make some things clear so that it is meaningful in some way, not just a random assemblage of ideas.
Shane Carruth
I oppose piracy and want to see intellectual property protected because that is what fosters and rewards innovation. But SOPA won’t accomplish a meaningful reduction in piracy and causes massive collateral damage to the Internet ecosystem.
Jared Polis
Time is not a linear flow, as we think it is, into past, present, and future. Time is an indivisible whole, a great pool in which all events are eternally embodied and still have their meaningful flash of supernormal or extra – sensory perception, and glimpse of something that happened long ago in our linear time.
Frank Waters
When we realize that something as primal as the food that we choose to eat each day makes such an important difference in addressing both global warming and personal health, it empowers us and imbues these choices with meaning. If it’s meaningful, then it’s sustainable – and a meaningful life is a longer life.
Dean Ornish
I have a problem with the fact that when it’s brought up, it’s not really discussed. It’s all that’s brought up. So-and-so is an Arab American or a Palestinian or Muslim or a doctor with or without borders and there’s really no meaningful entry into those hyphenations.
Fady Joudah
And the American people are the greatest people in the world. What makes America the greatest nation in the world is the heart of the American people: hardworking, innovative, risk-taking, God- loving, family-oriented American people.
Mitt Romney
What we believe at Quantic Dream is that there is a space for adult games: meaningful experiences for a mature audience.
David Cage
As long as outmoded ways of thinking prevent women from making a meaningful contribution to society, progress will be slow. As long as the nation refuses to acknowledge the equal role of more than half of itself, it is doomed to failure.
Nelson Mandela
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.
T. S. Eliot
Because of recent improvements in the accuracy of theoretical predictions based on large scale ab initio quantum mechanical calculations, meaningful comparisons between theoretical and experimental findings have become possible.
Yuan T. Lee
Sustainable solutions based on innovation can create a more resilient world only if that innovation is focused on the health and well-being of its inhabitants. And it is at that point – where technology and human needs intersect – that we will find meaningful innovation.
Frans van Houten
There is no meaning if meaning is not shared, and not because there would be an ultimate or first signification that all beings have in common, but because meaning is itself the sharing of Being.
Jean-Luc Nancy
The more anger towards the past you carry in your heart, the less capable you are of loving in the present.
Barbara De Angelis
True merit, like a river, the deeper it is, the less noise it makes.
E. F. L. Wood, 1st Earl of Halifax
It is not enough to simply listen to student voice. Educators have an ethical imperative to do something with students, and that is why meaningful student involvement is vital to school improvement.
Adam Fletcher
I’m so honored to have been a part of something so meaningful that helped to keep so many families and loved ones connected.
Oleta Adams
Friends are an indispensable part of a meaningful life. They are the ones who share our burdens and multiply our blessings. A true friend sticks by us in our joys and sorrows. In good times and bad, we need friends who will pray for us, listen to us, and lend a comforting hand and an understanding ear when needed.
Beverly LaHaye
Haters saying they wanna defeat us, they don’t hate us they wanna be us. Truth is you can’t join us or beat us.
Wiz Khalifa
The first requisite for success is to develop the ability to focus and apply your mental and physical energies to the problem at hand – without growing weary. Because such thinking is often difficult, there seems to be no limit to which some people will go to avoid the effort and labor that is associated with it.
Thomas A. Edison
Any journey in life, if not done for human reasons of understanding and love, would be a very empty and lonely one.
Tim Robbins
the world is neither meaningful, nor absurd. it quite simply is, and that, in any case, is what is so remarkable about it.
Alain Robbe-Grillet
I’ve always wanted something that the message is meaningful to me. I think about all these diversified personalities, people, and countries that I play. I’m simple, and I want to be able to sing my songs to anybody.
Andrae Crouch
Forget what you are supposed to do, do what you want to do.
Ginnifer Goodwin
My conscious decision has always been to do work that’s meaningful and play characters that give something to the film.
Huma Qureshi
It’s not the will to win that matters-everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.
Bear Bryant
I’m going to have a very thoughtful and meaningful enforcement response to Superfund to make sure that we are achieving good outcomes for citizens across the country with respect to that entire portfolio of 1,336 or so sites.
Scott Pruitt
At the last, this is what will determine a fulfilling, meaningful life, a life that, behind all the facades, every one of us longs to live: gratitude for the blessings that expresses itself by becoming the blessing.
Ann Voskamp
If you find life absurd, shouldn’t you find death precisely meaningful?
Harry Mulisch
Technology is only meaningful when it reaches the people.
Pranav Mistry
Unless there is meaningful change in Syria and an end to the crackdown, President Assad and those around him will find themselves isolated internationally and discredited within Syria.
William Hague
You can try to take sorrow and make it into something enduring, meaningful and beautiful. I always feel guilty that this is my job, that I get to do this.
Alice Hoffman
When I found out that I’m playing Nagini, I thought it was meaningful because it’s an important character in the ‘Harry Potter’ series. ‘Harry Potter’ is a franchise film with many Caucasian actors, so I thought many Korean viewers would be happy.
Claudia Kim
The heart of the theater is the play itself, how it dramatizes life to make it meaningful entertainment. To achieve depth and universality, the playwright must subject himself to intense critique, to know human character and behavior, and finally to construct art from the most mundane of human experience.
F. Sionil Jose
The Supreme Court has in place a legal structure which protects abortion rights in this country, and something has got to be done to change that before we can put in place truly meaningful protection for the unborn.
Charles T. Canady
There’s some humility that has to be constant. And if I ever put pressure on myself to represent in any meaningful way for Asian people, then that would just get in my way in terms of thinking that I am destined to speak on behalf of multiple people.
Bowen Yang
We skim over the surface thoughtlessly. But we must acknowledge that thinking well is a time-consuming process. We can’t expect instant results. We have to slow down a bit, and take the time to contemplate, meditate, and even pray. It is the only route to a more meaningful and efficient existence.
M. Scott Peck
I say you ought to write out 10 outrageous goals that are bigger than you because your life isn’t meaningful or important unless you’re on purpose about something way bigger than you are.
Mark Victor Hansen
[P]ride has no intrinsic substance, being no more than the name given to the soul devouring itself. When that loathsome perversion of love has borne its fruit, it has another, more meaningful and weightier name. We call it hatred.
Georges Bernanos
That is a real attitude – to see everything as being meaningful, even the less important things, to prove something, even the greater problems of life.
Umberto Eco
It is reasonable to insist that when the government deprives a person of his or her liberty? and in this case for an indefinite period of time? that the individual have a meaningful opportunity to challenge the legality of their detention and challenge whether they are being wrongfully detained.
Jeff Bingaman
I strongly believe that missionaries make better products. They care more. For a missionary, it’s not just about the business. There has to be a business, and the business has to make sense, but that’s not why you do it. You do it because you have something meaningful that motivates you.
Jeff Bezos
As we advance in life it becomes more and more difficult, but in fighting the difficulties the inmost strength of the heart is developed.
Vincent Van Gogh
Some of us do so much to make others happy. Sad thing is, some of us dont even know someone that would do the same for us.
Wiz Khalifa
It seems to me every one of us is doing something meaningful for this world.
Yani Tseng
To inspire a singularity of focus, a challenge must be important to you and it must be something you feel you should do now in this moment. If it’s trivial or not time-bound, you won’t engage. So in selecting your next challenge in life, choose one that is meaningful and will demand your complete concentration.
Brendon Burchard
That to fly requires chaotic, sometimes even violent passages–becomes a metaphor for all of life’s most meaningful endeavors.
Kelly Corrigan
I’m a novelist who read a lot as a kid. When you grow up on books and then grow up to write books, famous authors are a lot more meaningful to you than TV and movie stars.
Claire Scovell LaZebnik
Drinking alone holds no fun. Drink with friends or strangers! Be foolish, least you’ll remember something meaningful.
I really feel like the stars have aligned many ways, many times for me. I have been blessed to play some awesome roles and nuanced and meaningful characters.
Teyonah Parris
I am so sick and tired of participating in this predictable cycle of politics, where a mass shooting happens, the left calls for new gun laws – some meaningful, some unproductive – the right yells ‘slippery slope’ and hides behind the Constitution.
S.E. Cupp
In my own work, when I start off writing a scene, I don’t know which physical details are going to turn out to be meaningful. But, inevitably, certain images will stand out – you start to decide which ones are important as you go.
Celeste Ng
Nothing is more beautiful than a beautiful girl who does not pretend to be something she is not. A girl who is down to earth and lets no guy define who she is.
Wiz Khalifa
I think that’s the one thing we all hope for in this life is we leave something of a legacy, that’s meaningful to someone else, when we leave here.
Michael McDonald
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
Albert Einstein
The ability to be cool, confident, and decisive in crisis is not an inherited characteristic but is the direct result of how well the individual has prepared himself for the battle.
Richard M. Nixon
More American young people can tell you where an island that the ‘Survivor’ TV series came from is located than can identify Afghanistan or Iraq. Ironically a TV show seems more real or at least more meaningful interesting or relevant than reality.
John Fahey
Every moment of living has its own logic, its own meaning.
Kelly Reilly
I want to make meaningful music always – I think every artist does. We want our words and melodies to mean something to people, even if it is just one person.
Darren Fletcher
[C]ourage is reckoned the greatest of all virtues; because, unless a man has that virtue, he has no security for preserving any other.
Samuel Johnson
My job as a leader is to make sure everybody in the company has great opportunities, and that they feel they’re having a meaningful impact and are contributing to the good of society. As a world, we’re doing a better job of that. My goal is for Google to lead, not follow that.
Larry Page
The great thing about ‘World Of Warcraft’ is that you can sit down in your lunch hour and do a couple of quests and still feel like you’ve had a meaningful experience, rather than it feeling like you’ve got a second career.
Michael Morhaime
I keeps it real nothing. Like you actors do
Wiz Khalifa
I am not into the number games but wish to do meaningful roles.
I made money. I wanted to give it back to Africa but I wanted to give it back in a meaningful way. So I really want to do something which deals with the root of the problem of hunger, of disease, of ills we have in our society.
Mo Ibrahim
Shawn Michaels I just think the world of. I would love the opportunity to be in a meaningful match with him.
John Layfield
The positive emotions that arise in…unpromising circumstances demonstrate that social ties and meaningful work are deeply desired, readily improvised, and intensely rewarding. The very structure of our economy and society prevent these goals from being achieved.
Rebecca Solnit
If we practice hard enough, we can become thoroughly interested in even the simplest things of daily life, the way a child would. The smallest things would become so meaningful, they might even be worth a few words or a photograph, whatever method you use to capture them.
John Dickerson
I am willing to let go. I release others to experience whatever is meaningful to them, and I am free to create that which is meaningful to me.
Louise Hay
I’ve been successfully wearing my TWA during the fashion month in September 2015, but also I felt like my third appearance at a Victoria’s Secret show would be more meaningful or impactful if I could help a few women embrace their natural beauty.
Maria Borges
Like a nontechnical user trying to understand a technical problem, our racial illiteracy limits our ability to have meaningful conversations about race.
Robin DiAngelo
Our Congress should stay in session all summer – camp out in D.C., and turn off the AC. Put on their stuffiest powdered wigs and sweat it out, until they give in and put their John Hancocks (and their Nancy Pelosis and their John Boehners) on at least one meaningful law that no one wants to repeal.
Kevin Bleyer
To achieve policy stability and certainty, we need to establish a meaningful price on carbon and cut the billions of dollars spent each year on fossil-fuel subsidies, along with well-structured financial tools and rules.
Paul Polman
We all want to have a rich and meaningful work life and a fulfilling life beyond work.
Stewart D. Friedman
It doesn’t have to be pretty. It has to be meaningful.
Duane Hanson
…not all encounters with the world affect the mind equally. Studies have demonstrated that if the brain appraises an event as “meaningful,” it will be more likely to be recalled in the future.
Daniel J. Siegel
After you run, there’s a sense of accomplishment; you feel like your life is meaningful. It’s a moment of clarity.
Sakyong Mipham
As I’ve written more, and as other Indian American voices have grown around me, I strive harder to find experiences that are unique yet a meaningful and resonant part of the American story.
Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
Feeling inspired, being challenged. Learning something new, something meaningful. Knowing change is possible and I can make that happen. Understanding and loving others, feeling truly connected and authentic. Good food, great sex, and belly laughs. All the basic foundations of happiness, really!
Jaime Murray
Children frequently sing meaningful phrases to themselves over and over again before they learn to make a distinction between singing and saying.
David Antin
I want to empower and educate and inspire individuals who are giving to give in a way that is more meaningful. The more meaningful our giving is, the more giving we will do.
Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen
If you truly want to find a meaningful relationship, you’ve got to find yourself first and learn to be confident in your own skin. Don’t sacrifice anything about who you are to be with someone. That’s setting yourself up for failure.
Whitney Wolfe Herd
You were born to achieve, to release your inner power, to fulfill your uniqueness.
Eric Butterworth
It’s always inspiring to me to meet people who feel that they can make a difference in the world. That’s their motive, that’s their passion… I think that’s what makes your life meaningful, that’s what fills your own heart and that’s what gives you purpose.
Maria Shriver
How do I define success? Let me tell you, money’s pretty nice. But having a lot of money does not automatically make you a successful person. What you want is money and meaning. You want your work to be meaningful, because meaning is what brings the real richness to your life.
Oprah Winfrey
Leaving a book is hard – ‘Secret Six’ was a book that people cared about. Even years later, the digital sales are great; the trades and single issues are expensive and highly sought after. It was meaningful to a lot of readers, which is endlessly gratifying.
Gail Simone
My primary assessment would be because American Christians tend to be incredibly self-indulgent, so they see the church as a place there for them to meet their needs and to express faith in a way that is meaningful for them.
Erwin McManus
I don’t know if any genuine meaningful change could ever result from a song. It’s kind of like throwing peanuts at a gorilla.
Tom Waits
I would like to balance my career, do meaningful cinema and also do fluff films.
Daisy Shah
Most believers struggle to really believe in the supernatural as a meaningful, deterministic reality except during moments when they are drawn to it, perhaps during a worship service or while reading a novel like ‘Adam.’ Being drawn to this truth is the first step to living a life in accordance to this truth.
Ted Dekker
Critics should find meaningful work.
John Grisham
Until you came along, I never knew how much I’d been missing. I never knew that a touch could be so meaningful or an expression so eloquent; I never knew that a kiss could literally take my breath awa
Nicholas Sparks
Everybody can justify their actions. We all think that we’re doing things for reasons that are meaningful to us. Maybe not to other people, but to us.
Barbara Crampton
I have mothers with small children come to me and say, ‘You found that I had early breast cancer – because of you, I don’t have cancer.’ You’ve just prevented that person from dying early, and to prevent an early, unnecessary death is incredibly meaningful.
Anne Wojcicki
[Wellesley College] is about as meaningful to the educational process in America as a perfume factory is to the national economy.
Nora Ephron
The times I spent with my children in nature are among my most meaningful memories-and I hope theirs.
Richard Louv
Good things come in good time.
Wiz Khalifa
Live today as if you were going to live forever, for you surely shall.
Gordon B. Hinckley
I want the younger writer to know that she or he is meaningful, that what they have to say is powerful in this world. But they can’t come indoors, they can’t close the curtains, they can’t, like, lock themselves away from the world and say nothing.
Colum McCann
If you share information widely, but you present that information in ways that fits your own view, you’re actually still misrepresenting. So instead what you should do is figure out ways to build systems that allow people to experience and classify their information in ways that are meaningful for them.
Ramesh Srinivasan
Light is meaningful only in relation to darkness, and truth presupposes error. It is these mingled opposites which people our life, which make it pungent, intoxicating. We only exist in terms of this conflict, in the zone where black and white clash.
Louis Aragon
Corporate houses and big companies can be meaningful distribution channels for start-ups.
Steve Jurvetson
I think there is an enormous sea change happening in the global workforce. It has a lot to do with globalization. I think that people used to have a hope for a career or meaningful employment, and its been reduced to internships, part-time work or just grossly underpaid work.
Dan Gilroy
Meaningful work, not welfare, is every American’s hope, and we have a continuing responsibility to make those hopes a lasting reality.
Ronald Reagan
With ‘Detroit,’ we realized that we wanted to create an experience that could be meaningful.
David Cage
Achieving meaningful goals requires that you commit your entire ass, not just one cheek.
Steve Pavlina
What makes things memorable is that they are meaningful, significant, colorful.
Joshua Foer
Hollywood, it seems, recognizes black film and black filmmakers, but like a distant lover, never close enough or long enough to forge a meaningful relationship.
Joe Morton
Theres something about girls and unicorns thats deep and meaningful. Something about childhood.
Ted Naifeh
I’ve been told I miss every pass made at me! It would be wonderful to have a partner, but in my mind, it has to be like making a product. The product has to be meaningful, impact people – it has to be a great product.
Joy Mangano
All of nature begins to whisper its secrets to us through its sounds. Sounds that were previously incomprehensible to our soul now become the meaningful language of nature.
Rudolf Steiner
Do what you love, and do it well – that’s much more meaningful than any metric.
Kevin Systrom
Ohio, you’re too white, too many white people to be in any way meaningful in a presidential election.
Rush Limbaugh
I find myself chatting with my paintings, not deep and meaningful stuff, but things like ‘hey there buddy’ and ‘oh, look what I did to your nose!’
Anh Do
I don’t think we’re yet evolved to the point where we’re clever enough to handle a complex a situation as climate change. The inertia of humans is so huge that you can’t really do anything meaningful.
James Lovelock
Good writing is really meaningful, and it’s one of the – it’s still one of the best tools we have to get and capture people’s attention.
Robin Sloan
Brands are facing a new competitive landscape in which self-definition, core values and purpose will increasingly define their ability to reach customers that only allow what is meaningful in their lives to pass through their filter.
Simon Mainwaring
An easy life is rarely meaningful and a meaningful life rarely easy.
Oliver North
Creating a meaningful life has less to do with how we feel about our past than what we do about our future.
Bill Crawford
Dysfunction in Washington has stalled any meaningful federal action on gun control. So it’s increasingly up to big cities like New York to take bold steps to get weapons off our streets and change the national discourse.
Letitia James
I remember those days with Bergman with great nostalgia. We were aware that the films were going to be quite important, and the work felt meaningful.
Max von Sydow
There is a growing awareness among brands that in order to participate in conversations that are taking place across social networks, they must join these discussions on the basis of something that is meaningful to their customers.
Simon Mainwaring
You can get around to meaningful conversations more quickly in the dark than with the sun tickling your face.
Anne Frank
I think we can achieve meaningful change, but only if we demand that the institutions themselves change their behavior.
Chelsea Manning
Automation provides us with wondrous increases of production and information, but does it tell us what to do with the men the machines displace? Modern industry gives us the capacity for unparalleled wealth – but where is our capacity to make that wealth meaningful to the poor of every nation?
Robert Kennedy
He looks,” Simon had once said to Isabelle, “like he’s thinking about something deep and meaningful, but if you ask him what it is, he’ll punch you in the face.
Cassandra Clare
Emailing a meaningful photograph to someone who is not expecting it can change a relationship forever.
Nick Kelsh
Being engaged in some way for the good of the community, whatever that community, is a factor in a meaningful life. We long to belong, and belonging and caring anchors our sense of place in the universe.
Patricia Churchland
The second thing we did was said, OK, we’ve now identified the risk, but what do you want to do with the money? Because it’s not enough to have risk; you’ve got to have a meaningful use for the money we give you.
Michael Chertoff
True ‘joy’ is the difference between just amusing ourselves to death and creating ‘meaningful’ pleasure.
Sidney Poitier
The expression that friends are the family you choose, is so powerful, because most people are close with their families, and when you add people into that level of trust, love, and loyalty, it’s a really meaningful thing. The fact you’re actively choosing each other is so beautiful at its core.
Beanie Feldstein
We didn’t grow up in any sort of meaningful representation in media apart from, you know, Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Bruce Lee. But, of course, that was different still, because it always played to this narrative of the foreigner from the East.
Simu Liu
Punishment is now unfashionable… because it creates moral distinctions among men, which, to the democratic mind, are odious. We prefer a meaningless collective guilt to a meaningful individual responsibility.
Thomas Szasz
I believe a novel must first of all be a good story. My hope is that the spiritual message is woven in so well, is such a part of the fabric of the story and of the characters’ lives, that it is subtle but meaningful. This is difficult to do well and is something I constantly endeavor to improve.
Julie Klassen
One of the most meaningful things we can do as parents is teach our children the power of prayer, not just the routine of prayer.
Tad R. Callister
I would like to recommend ‘After Putting On Makeup’ off our 1st LP, ‘The SHINee World.’ All of our albums are meaningful to us, but I have more attachment towards it because it is our first album.
Lee Tae-min
Working in Washington, trying to make a difference, that was a very meaningful time for me, a period of personal growth.
Tim Finchem
I’m hoping what all sentient beings hope … that somehow I’m part of something larger than myself, in which I play a role, an actual role that is somehow intended and meaningful.
Anne Rice
Because of technologies from space exploration, we can begin to understand our world’s origins, and our lives are improving. These are the reasons why dedicating a life to the sciences and space exploration is so meaningful and rewarding.
Emily Calandrelli
But the Promise showed their wildest dreams had simply not been wild enough.
Michael Card
I have not been part of an active counterculture movement, as it is not the approach that I have personally pursued to create a qualitatively beneficial and meaningful impact on society.
Al Seckel
If you don’t believe in magic, then you can’t believe in reality.
Benjamin Disraeli
We must revamp K-12 education law to ensure Washington does not stand in the way of meaningful reforms.
John Kline
Only that which is directed toward definite goals, which in turn are founded on sound educational philosophy, can be ultimately meaningful. The principles must always precede the activities.
Henrietta Mears
We must dare, and dare again, and go on daring.
Georges Danton
There are other ways of finding satisfaction, recipes for human happiness, enjoyment, dignified and meaningful, gratifying life, than increased consumption that increases production.
Zygmunt Bauman
Make sure you have finished speaking before your audience has finished listening.
Dorothy Sarnoff
To know that the people who are singing along at your show actually have something in common with you and can identify with what you’ve gone through, makes the songs that much more meaningful to sing.
Laura Jane Grace
I’ve taken a lot of risks as far as turning down money to do something I guess I thought was more meaningful. But I don’t know if that’s the best piece of advice, because I’ve also struggled with money, when I could have had a little more if I’d just taken the damn job.
Justin Hartley
There’s no point living, if you can’t feel alive.
Sophie Marceau
In order to ensure our criminal justice system is fair and equitable, my office is conducting an immediate assessment of every prosecution within the past 10 years where these officers were involved. This is a shameful incident that the public deserves to have addressed in a meaningful and expeditious manner.
George Gascon
The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.
Alice Walker
After macrobiotics, Zen, and channeling, the “poor Vanishing Indian” is once more the subject of “deep and meaningful conversation” in the high rises.
Mary Brave Bird
In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future.
Alex Haley
Choosing a way to die, what’s the difference? Choosing a way to live, now that’s the hard part.
Robert Ryan
The coming-of-age story has sort of become a joke. It’s something to capitalize on, and that is painful because when you are coming of age – when you are going through something like that – the genre is so meaningful.
Mae Whitman
Tranquil as a forest, but on fire within, once you find your center, you are sure to win.
David Zippel
I just wanted to make a record that wasn’t escapism. Like, I didn’t want to write another record that was devoid of meaningful content.
Dan Deacon
The goal of forecasting is not to predict the future but to tell you what you need to know to take meaningful action in the present
Paul Saffo
Vigor is contagious, and whatever makes us either think or feel strongly adds to our power and enlarges our field of action.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
We cannot expect to keep our nation’s secrets secure – or provide meaningful oversight for our intelligence agencies – if proper classification of our country’s secrets is as likely as a coin flip.
Dianne Feinstein
I will not be labelled as average.
Rachel Scott
Diseases can be our spiritual flat tires – disruptions in our lives that seem to be disasters at the time but end by redirecting our lives in a meaningful way.
Bernie Siegel
to love is to destroy
Cassandra Clare
Men at forty Learn to close softly The doors to rooms they will not be Coming back to.
Donald Justice
A song is a meaningful thing.
Doug Walters
The only meaningful thing we can offer one another is love. Not advice, not questions about our choices, not suggestions for the future, just love.
Glennon Melton
Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.
Henry Van Dyke
Living in a chronic state of unawareness can cause us to miss much of what is most beautiful and meaningful in our lives.
Jon Kabat-Zinn
Architecture is about the understanding of the worldВ and turning it into a more meaningful and humane place.
Juhani Pallasmaa
Cry as much as you want to, but just make sure when you’re finished, you never cry for the same reason again.
Wiz Khalifa
I can understand wanting to have millions of dollars; there’s a certain freedom, meaningful freedom, that comes with that.
Bill Gates
In business, as in life, all that matters is that you do something positive.
Richard Branson
Meaningful stories have lots and lots of conflict. If we avoid conflict, our stories won’t be meaningful.
Donald Miller
The American Nazi party and the KKK don’t really exist in a meaningful way. They may have an office or website. But they are not tens of thousands of members.
Tucker Carlson
The real issue is not whether baking biscuits is meaningful, but the extent to which the activity can seem to be so after it has been continuously stretched and subdivided across five thousand lives.
Alain de Botton
Fifty percent of all meaningful education takes place in the home. What do you share with your child? You share your interests. I was a book person. I read with my son. My wife is an artist. She dragged his little butt around to museums. He’s an illustrator of children’s books.
Walter Dean Myers
Let go of your attachment to being right, and suddenly your mind is more open. You’re able to benefit from the unique viewpoints of others, without being crippled by your own judgment.
Ralph Marston
You got to know what’s worth keeping and what’s worth letting go.
Michael Shannon
You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.
Mark Twain
Instead of always asking yourself how to clear up your mental fog, learn to ask: “Can confusion know anything about clarity?”
Guy Finley
The past cannot be changed or forgotten, edited or erased. It can only be accepted.
Wiz Khalifa
To fight tyranny and oppression by using tyrannical and oppressive means, to combat a single-minded and ruthless fanaticism by becoming equally fanatical and ruthless, will not further the cause of justice or bring about a meaningful democracy. It can only prolong the cycle of violence.
Tariq Ali
Bicycling beyond the Divide did what all great books do: it told me about me. In its tale of a journey made by two different men-both of them Daryl Farmer-this book offers us not only moving vistas and meaningful people, but also hope, that rarest of literary commodities these days. I didn’t want this to end.
Bret Lott
For me, my mentor was Rain who I like and admire so much. To be able to appear in the same place with him as a mentor to someone is meaningful and such an honor.
Lee Tae-min
We have only the language for fun and miserable, and maybe we need language for deep and shallow, meaningful and meaningless.
Rebecca Solnit
You can use your life in a very useful and intelligent way. You can very well transform that negative energy into a positive energy that empowers you and makes life meaningful.
Nhat Hanh
It’s funny how we feel so much but we don’t say a word, we’re screaming inside but we can’t be heard.
Wiz Khalifa
There really aren’t any deletes [in The Hanover movie]. There’s like one or two deleted scenes but they’re not important or meaningful scenes.
Ed Helms
Just in a professional world, sometimes a phone call is definitely more meaningful than a text.
Kevin Harvick
Set goals that are achievable. Bring about meaningful change one step at a time. Raising awareness is not enough.
Henry Spira
You need to be a good screen partner. It’s very meaningful to me to be a part of great acting performances.
Ethan Hawke
Life is only as meaningful as you fool yourself into thinking it is.
Lily Collins
Common sense is the genius of humanity.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Character is the glue that bonds solid and meaningful relationships
Tony Dungy
A life filled with silly social drama and gossip indicates that a person is disconnected from purpose and lacking meaningful goals. People on a path of purpose don’t have time for drama.
Brendon Burchard
I had to get really clear about what was meaningful & what wasn’t, who I was & who I wasn’t & who I wasn’t going to be anymore.
Iyanla Vanzant
I’m very proud of all my children. They all have Christian families; they read the Bible; they pray; the kids go to Sunday school; they know the Ten Commandments by heart. That’s my greatest honor, and I couldn’t do anything to glorify God that could surpass that. That’s very meaningful.
Robert H. Schuller
I’m looking for conversations that will be meaningful with people that want to have meaningful connections with an audience.
George Stroumboulopoulos
Like many people, I had the powerful experience of being raised on Dr. Seuss, then becoming a parent and revisiting him with my own children. That multigenerational experience around his work is very meaningful.
Chris Meledandri
I don’t think the arts would have been as meaningful to me if I hadn’t grown up in Harlem.
Ruby Dee
Design is the conscious imposition of meaningful order.
Jonah Lehrer
Never give up. Don’t let good ideas be buried with you. Breathe it. Dream it.
Live it and relentlessly pursue your ideas and ideals.
Without them you cannot achieve anything meaningful in life.
Li Cunxin
There is no meaningful or persuasive constitutional distinction between semiautomatic handguns and semiautomatic rifles.
Brett Kavanaugh
All that either of us has is right now and we should pay attention to that.
Radha Mitchell
I hope to do meaningful and different types of roles.
Rhea Chakraborty
Those who are excluded from meaningful work are, by an large, excluded from meaningful play.
David Riesman
If you don’t know where you’re going any road will do
Lewis Carroll
When you describe a character’s dream, it has to be sharper than reality in some way and more meaningful. It has to somehow speak to plot, character, and all the rest.
Jeff Vandermeer
Worrying is stupid. it’s like walking around with an umbrella waiting for it to rain.
Wiz Khalifa
Of course if you are launching a new business you can thinking about revenues, profits, and so on, but metrics such as customer satisfaction or employee retention might be meaningful if you are focusing more internally.
Scott D. Anthony
Consciousness will not always solve the problem, but it may make the suffering meaningful.
Marion Woodman
Relationships keep us alive and our lives meaningful.
Bernie Siegel
I genuinely do want the world to change in a positive way, but I wouldn’t call myself an activist, you know? I’m an entertainer who engages with activism because it feels really meaningful for me.
Olly Alexander
I want to bring that old soul back, the meaningful lyrics and all of that. And I can’t think of a better way to do that than through Motown.
La’Porsha Renae
I’m more trying to connect; I’m more listening to people. Whatever I get is very meaningful to me.
Ngugi wa Thiong’o
In much of computer science, I can easily ‘auto-grade’ your work and give you an instant meaningful feedback. I can’t do this when it comes to the subtlety of human thought, language, poetry, philosophy.
Sebastian Thrun
Baltimore residents deserve a commitment from leaders to deliver meaningful changes and the possibility of a better future, and so does every Marylander who loves our great state.
Larry Hogan
It’s hard to get lost if you don’t know where you’re going.
Jim Jarmusch
Together, with technology as an enabler, we can help our veterans find meaningful civilian careers that match their skills and interest.
Tae Yoo
The energy transition demands a clear vision of the steps that need to be taken and a stable, meaningful regulatory framework. It appears important to us to awaken public opinion to the fact that this transition will necessarily come at a cost and will, at least in the short term, involve a price increase.
Christophe de Margerie
Asking people for money is a hard thing to do. But helping people do the right thing is not hard. So I often call people up and suggest ways they can spend their money to make a meaningful impact, and I don’t feel I’ve asked them for money.
Kenneth Cole
A good writer gets better only by learning to cut, to remove the ornamental, the descriptive, the narrative, and especially the deeply felt and meaningful. What remains? The story remains.
David Mamet
I am well aware that, if my endorsement is meaningful and helpful to Huckabee, it is because my father devoted so much of his life and ministry to cultural reform.
Jerry Falwell, Jr.
What we like to think of ourselves and what we really are rarely have much in common.
Stephen King
Simply being with other people who are also seekers and who are involved in the same quest you are is very meaningful.
Dan Wakefield
Creativity is how we cope with creation. While creation sometimes seems a bit un-graspable, or even pointless, creativity is always meaningful.
Vik Muniz
It is a society of laborers which is about to be liberated from the ferrets of labor, and this society does no longer know of those other higher and more meaningful activities for the sake of which this freedom would deserve to be won.
Hannah Arendt
You don’t have to wait for something ‘meaningful’ to come into your life so that you can finally enjoy what you do. There is more meaning in joy than you will ever need. The ‘waiting to start living’ syndrome is one of the most common delusions of the unconscious state.
Eckhart Tolle
I knew that I wanted to be in parallel cinema and do meaningful films.
Rohini Hattangadi
There is that lovely feeling of one reader telling another, ‘You must read this.’ I’ve always wanted to write a book like that, with the sense that you are contributing to the discourse in middle America, a discourse that begins at a book club in a living room, but then spreads. That is meaningful to me.
Abraham Verghese
Life has its own flavor.
Juhi Chawla
I want to express what’s meaningful. I’m not into gimmicks. I want to make truthful music that’s invigorating, maintains a cutting edge, takes on different shades.
Jason Moran
According to Kierkegaard, rather than searching for the Truth with a capital T, it is more important to find the kind of truths that are meaningful to the individual’s life. It is important to find `the truth for me`.
Jostein Gaarder
Party and ideology routinely trump institutional interests and responsibilities. Regular order – the set of rules, norms and traditions designed to ensure a fair and transparent process – was the first casualty. The results: No serious deliberation. No meaningful oversight of the executive. A culture of corruption.
Thomas E. Mann
Synchronicity is an inexplicable and profoundly meaningful coincidence that stirs the soul and offers a glimpse of one’s destiny.
Phil Cousineau
Survivorship comes with unspoken pressures, responsibilities and challenges. After all, what is the point of saving a life if the life isn’t a meaningful one?
Suleika Jaouad
The great lesson I get from ‘Moby-Dick’ is that when the times are bad, when there is great foreboding, there are still ways to go about living. It’s through Ishmael that I find a kind of overall cosmic approach to a meaningful life in this meaningless world.
Nathaniel Philbrick
It’s easy to say, ‘I love you,’ to someone, but it’s more meaningful to thank someone for loving you.
Jon Bon Jovi
If one wanted to crush and destroy a man entirely, to mete out to him the most terrible punishment, all one would have to do would be to make him do work that was completely and utterly devoid of usefulness and meaning.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
I tend to not discriminate when it comes to people I can learn from. Basically, if someone has built a meaningful business in software, technology or media, faced disruption and adversity, and overcame underdog status, I want to know how they did it.
Aaron Levie
I grew up in war and saw the United Nations help my country to recover and rebuild. That experience was a big part of what led me to pursue a career in public service. As Secretary-General, I am determined to see this organization deliver tangible, meaningful results that advance peace, development and human rights.
Ban Ki-moon
An awareness of one’s mortality can lead you to wake up and live an authentic, meaningful life.
Bernie Siegel
‘Recovery’ is an idea whose time has come. At its heart is a set of values about a person’s right to build a meaningful life for themselves, with or without the continuing presence of mental health symptoms.
Geoff Shepherd
I have a high bar for myself already; I always want to do something beautiful and meaningful.
Patty Jenkins
I did my best work in The Mosquito Coast. I know it wasn’t such a big hit, but for me it was more meaningful than anything else I’d ever done.
River Phoenix
Our most meaningful relationships are based on a longing for expansion rather than a preoccupation with comfort and security. To live exuberantly-to fully know and be fully known by another-we must be prepared to illuminate the dark spots in our most intimate relationships and in our selves.
Arianna Huffington
5G trials will accelerate in 2018, and in 2019, we can expect to see meaningful deployment in the U.S., China, and potentially other markets like Japan.
Rajeev Suri
If women want to ensure themselves a meaningful place in the future, they need to be among those determining how the technology will be used. They need to be among those deciding whether it will be the great leveler or simply serve to worsen social divisions.
Anita Borg
I liked acting early on, and I really liked roles that were meaningful to me, and ‘Baywatch’ was.
Erika Eleniak
My mental hands were empty, and I felt I must do something as a counterirritant or antibody to my hysterical alarm at getting married at the age of 43.
Ian Fleming
There is nothing more meaningful than being true to yourself and finding your own voice. Follow your heart and don’t let anyone discourage you.
Jane Fulton Alt
In order for us as poor and oppressed people to become part of a society that is meaningful, the system under which we now exist has to be radically changed… It means facing a system that does not lend its self to your needs and devising means by which you change that system.
Ella Baker
The good life consists in deriving happiness by using your signature strengths every day in the main realms of living. The meaningful life adds one more component: using these same strengths to forward knowledge, power or goodness.
Martin Seligman
How we move forward with a level of R&D support that will be meaningful allows us to really build on and enhance our energy opportunities in this country.
Lisa Murkowski
Actors do all kinds of roles, but once in a while, we also want to do a meaningful film.
Rhea Chakraborty
There is a high bar for something to be considered a human right. Loosely put, it must be among the things we as humans need in order to lead healthy, meaningful lives, like freedom from torture or freedom of conscience.
Vint Cerf
While it is all very well to distinguish happiness that is transient from that which is lasting, between ephemeral and genuine happiness, the only happiness it is meaningful to speak of when a person is dying from thirst is access to water.
Dalai Lama
I mean, Trump’s Oval Office is like Grand Central Station. People try briefing him and someone comes in and interrupts him. People just sort of walk in without being previously announced in any meaningful way.
Maggie Haberman
To live like we are supposed to, we need to listen to our blood, so to speak. Our paganism is in our blood, and to be able to create a positive and meaningful civilization in the future, on the ruins of the ‘Sodom and Gomorrah’ we live in today, we need to live in accordance with our blood.
Varg Vikernes
Your personal testimony, however meaningful it is to you, is not the gospel.
R. C. Sproul
Blogging is great, and I read blogs all day long. However, my goal is really to have a deep, meaningful discussion with people. For some reason, I’m able to accomplish this best via email.
Jason Calacanis
We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
It is not the destiny of Black America to repeat white America’s mistakes. But we will, if we mistake the trappings of success in a sick society for the signs of a meaningful life.
Audre Lorde
People in this country should be able to find economic opportunity and meaningful jobs in the places they grew up.
Ro Khanna
I think every script has meaningful messages no matter what it is, because inherently life is full of meaning and every single day we lean a lesson.
Shailene Woodley
You can’t have meaningful political democracy without functioning economic democracy.
Noam Chomsky
I don’t want to get embroiled in any controversy. At the same time, I want to take part in those conversations that are meaningful. I have not entrusted anyone to reply on behalf or react to any issue pertaining to me.
When you are not sure on what to do, choose a life that is most meaningful to you and make it a habit.
Rita Zahara
I became an optimist when I discovered that I wasn’t going to win any more games by being anything else.
Earl Weaver
We are an organization led by a purpose – to make a positive, meaningful impact that matters to everyone Deloitte touches. I will do my best to serve the network by helping enable our leaders and people to fulfill their passion to make a difference.
Punit Renjen
When we’re fully engaged in the present moment, no matter what we’re doing, the question of meaning never seems to arise. It’s because we feel fulfilled and that is inherently meaningful.
Roger Housden
When, who, and what things happen to becomes meaningful, then what happens starts to matter, and play can evoke strong emotions, fierce and ongoing urges to succeed, and a desire to leave a mark, drive meaningful change, or build lasting institutions.
Ed Greenwood
Time is: Too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear.
Henry Van Dyke
Eighty percent of life’s satisfaction comes from meaningful relationships.
Brian Tracy
I think the most rewarding thing is going over and being deployed and having done meaningful things.
Tim Kennedy
Rather than being a prop in a film with big actors, I would love to do a meatier and more meaningful role in a film that does not feature a big actor.
Zareen Khan
Pursue meaningful adventures.
Chris Guillebeau
When I reflect on the issues that black Hollywood has had with the lack of representation at the Oscars, I realized that we have a responsibility to tell stories that are meaningful for our history.
In fact, I believe the first companies that make an effort to develop an authentic, transparent, and meaningful social contract with their fans and customers will turn out to be the ones that are the most successful in the future. While brands that refuse to make the effort will lose stature and customer loyalty.
Simon Mainwaring
On a cosmic scale, our life is insignificant, yet this brief period when we appear in the world is the time in which all meaningful questions arise.
Paul Ricoeur
I will only sign on the dotted line if I feel my role is meaningful.
Saswata Chatterjee
We were created for meaningful work, and one of life’s greatest pleasures is the satisfaction of a job well done.
John C. Maxwell
All our feelings, like the artist’s paints and brush, are ways of communicating and sharing something meaningful from us to the world.
Rollo May
One meaningful distinction between high and popular culture, is that there’s way more good popular culture – because its standards of quality are more forgiving, because sobriety isn’t its default mode, because there’s so damn much of it.
Robert Christgau
To me, jewelry is a natural progression and there is something so meaningful and magical about creating that one of a kind, special piece.
Pamela Love
What the Lib Dems have failed to do is offer any meaningful agenda for government or for power.
Lucy Powell
My father never really encouraged me or even took an interest after I walked away from the family business. No one did except my mother and my grandfather. To be truthful, I cannot remember one meaningful conversation I had with my father.
Juergen Teller
I am no longer interested in the rat race and I want to be around in a meaningful way.
If you can figure out a way for people at all different stages of life to believe that they’re all meaningful to each other, then yes, WeLive can work anywhere.
Miguel McKelvey
Throw all caution to the wind, today, on your 40th
No need to have wisdom and sage
But tomorrow, as you start your 5th decade
Do try to act more your age
John Walter Bratton
In recent years there’s been a lot of philosophical theorising about how important magic is, and how it takes us back to a childlike state of astonishment. I think all this is just nonsense. Magic isn’t meaningful or important other than how you’re performing it in that moment.
Derren Brown
I’ve always wanted my lyrics to say something meaningful and, you know, you always want to tell a message with your art. So yes, as I continue to write music, I will write about things that are real and things that I feel aren’t written about a lot.
Hayley Kiyoko
Real love is more than a one-time, seemingly iron-clad pledge that we will never be apart. If you’re over 20, you’ve probably figured out that meaningful love isn’t constricting; it doesn’t chain you to one place or to each other.
Faith Salie
My life is meaningful.
Daniel Jacobs
There’s something about being under-rested and knowing that the situation is going to remain that way for quite some time that makes things more meaningful.
Henry Rollins
It was not until the appearance of cyberpunk in the 1980s that SF began to grapple in a broadly meaningful way with the reality of computers as something other than giant mainframes tended by crewcut IBM nerds.
Paul Di Filippo
I have never seen a person grow or change in a self – constructive meaningful way when motivated by guilt, shame, or self hate.
Herb Goldberg
I dislike the phrase ‘Internet friends,’ because it implies that people you know online aren’t really your friends, that somehow the friendship is less real or meaningful to you because it happens through Skype or text messages. The measure of a friendship is not its physicality but its significance.
John Green
My job as a coach was to make something meaningful out of one of the most mundane activities on the planet: playing pro basketball.
Phil Jackson
Christians might say that you can’t live a more meaningful life without Jesus. Well, that’s absolutely not true. You can. You can enjoy a sunrise whether you know Jesus or not.
Donald Miller
The audience is the most revered member of the theater. Without an audience, there is no theater. Everything done is ultimately for the enjoyment of the audience. They are our guests, fellow players, and the last spoke in the wheel which can then begin to roll. They make the performance meaningful.
Viola Spolin
Meaningful relationships are two-way, and that means constantly looking for ways to improve your customers’ lives.
Peter Friedman
Compassion is one of the principal things that make our lives meaningful. It is the source of all lasting happiness and joy.
Dalai Lama
If you allow yourself to fully feel the life you’re in – not conceptually, but viscerally in the present moment – then that is inherently meaningful.
Roger Housden
Ball so hard that you can’t win it. So much money bank can’t fit it.
Wiz Khalifa
Quincy [Jones] is one of the greatest world figures, of all-time. I mean he’s up there with Muhammad Ali, as far as I’m concerned. His humanitarian work, his contribution to the world and music – he’s really an amazing man. Even political divides don’t affect his humanity. So, to me, that was extremely meaningful.
Robert Davi
I love you,Nora. Whatever happens, promise me you’ll remember that. I don’t care why you came into my life,only that you did. I don’t remember all the things i did wrong. I remember what i did right, I remember you. You made my life meaningful. You made my life special.
Becca Fitzpatrick
Meaningful work is very different than drudgery.
Mike Rowe
Work and play are words used to describe the same thing under differing conditions.
Mark Twain
You’re not wrong for doin what you want.
Wiz Khalifa
I would say that if you don’t believe that Jesus of Nazareth was the Christ and Messiah, and that he rose again from the dead and by his sacrifice our sins are forgiven, you’re really not in any meaningful sense a Christian.
Christopher Hitchens
Is the Archbishop’s blessing any more meaningful than the Politician’s handshake? The come, they go, with bigger things than us on their minds.
Edward Abbey
But they are not going to take on Big Oil because Big Oil is very generous at campaign time, and this is all about the elections. They want to pretend that they are doing something meaningful.
Peter DeFazio
We believe strongly that all meaningful change comes from entrepreneurs.
Steve Jurvetson
Great minds think alone.
Wiz Khalifa
All I try to do is to write music that feels meaningful to me, that has commitment and passion behind it.
Bruce Springsteen
When the Senate ceases to engage nominees in meaningful discussion of legal issues, the confirmation process takes on an air of vacuity and farce, and the Senate becomes incapable of evaluating nominees or appropriately educating the public.
Elena Kagan
We must have a relentless commitment to producing a meaningful, comprehensive energy package aimed at conservation, alleviating the burden of energy prices on consumers, decreasing our country’s dependency on foreign oil, and increasing electricity grid reliability.
Paul Gillmor
You’ve touched people and known it. You’ve touched people and never may know it. Either way, you have something to give. It is in giving to one another that each of our lives becomes meaningful.
Laura Schlessinger
Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.
Ernest Holmes
Pray that your loneliness may spur you into finding something to live for, great enough to die for.
Dag Hammarskjold
Survival in any meaningful sense is the key issue of our time
Thomas Berry
I like my name. My mom named me after a song by the 1970s group Bread. So, it’s meaningful, and I like the song. It’s a love song – kind of – but it’s kind of depressing and dark.
Aubrey Plaza
To me, there’s a difference between going to a concert and getting a recording. It’s almost like a different release. The physical album itself is the more meaningful one for me, but I don’t want to tell people how to listen to music.
Tristan Perich
What is meaningful cannot in fact be isolated…. We achieve understanding within a circular movement from particular facts to the whole that includes them and back again from the whole thus reached to the particular significant facts.
Karl Jaspers
You’re much more likely to reach your goals if they’re your goals, speaking to your desires, rather than the desires of outside influences. Goals that are meaningful to you will keep you inspired and driven towards success.
Jillian Michaels
It is not the strength of the body that counts, but the strength of the spirit.
J. R. R. Tolkien
I’ve learned to take jobs as an actress that is meaningful to me because I’ve never taken a job for the money.
Emmy Rossum
I’m all about that money, dress like everyday sunny, rolling weed like a Marley, smile like everything funny.
Wiz Khalifa
Those of us who did make it have an obligation to build again. To teach to others what we know, and to try with what’s left of our lives to find a goodness and a meaning to this life.
Charlie Sheen
I will write things, he was thinking. I will write something meaningful and wonderful someday. I can do that. And I’ll dedicate it to you because you’re the first person who ever made me think I could.
Anne Rice
We work very, very hard to find that fine line where location is meaningful enough to be interesting to an advertiser but not so intrusive that it interrupts the creative flow of the show.
David Brenner
In order to lead a meaningful life, you need to cherish others, pay attention to human values and try to cultivate inner peace.
Dalai Lama
Nothing is impossible. With so many people saying it couldn’t be done, all it takes is an imagination.
Michael Phelps
Control of the browser that people use to access the Web turned out to be far less meaningful than the search engine we use as the starting point for finding Web information. I switch between Safari, Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome browsers all day. I never stray from Google search.
Glenn Kelman
I can’t choose the most meaningful song that I’ve written. That would be like choosing one child over another. But first borns are always special.
When it comes down to it, you win a bunch of games or maybe things don’t go the way that you plan – those relationships that you build with the guys around you last a lifetime. To me, that’s meaningful.
Marcus Mariota
Design, by definition, is an eco-friendly activity, as its aim is to create objects which are meaningful and durable. Trends always cost resources, but a true designer creates wares which will remain relevant forever.
Marcel Wanders
Our children are our most cherished possession. In their early years, we must make sure they get a healthy start in life. They must receive the right food for a healthy body, the right education for a bright and inquiring mind – and the equal opportunity for a meaningful job.
Gloria Macapagal Arroyo
Be who you are and let everyone love that person.
Wiz Khalifa
I do not have many things that are meaningful to me. Except my doubts and my fears. And my art.
Chaim Potok
Social media provides a constant platform on which to feature what we deem beautiful, meaningful, and worthy.
Faith Salie
An AI utopia is a place where people have income guaranteed because their machines are working for them. Instead, they focus on activities that they want to do, that are personally meaningful like art or, where human creativity still shines, in science.
Oren Etzioni
To strengthen our relationship with God, we need some meaningful time alone with Him
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Somebody asked me if I knew you. A million memories flashed through my mind but I just smiled and said I used to.
Wiz Khalifa
I’m not an evangelist Christian at all. I can’t try to convert anybody. It’s not in me to do that. But my faith has given me such an appreciation of people and meaningful relationships, and a world view which I didn’t have before. And although I will fail every day, it gives me something to aspire to.
David Suchet
Without love of something I don’t know if you can have a meaningful life at all.
Nicholas Sparks
I find I am constantly being encouraged to pluck out some one aspect of myself and present this as the meaningful whole, eclipsing or denying the other parts of self.
Audre Lorde
To tackle the prescription drug affordability crisis, we need to understand how high costs are directly impacting the people in our communities and in our neighborhoods – and we need to redouble our resolve to pass meaningful legislation that can lower prices and stimulate competition across the industry.
Abigail Spanberger
Many people measure their success by wealth, recognition, power and status. There’s nothing wrong with those, but if that’s all you’re focused on, you’re missing the boat…if you focus on significance -using your time and talent to serve others -that’s when truly meaningful success can come your way.
Ken Blanchard
What I’m trying to say is: it gets boring when nothing meaningful is discussed about it. It’s the same thing when a woman poet writes about suffering – it’s a “woman’s tendency to depression and grief.” It’s not a human, universal tackling of something that exists in all of us. It’s suddenly a “woman issue.”
Fady Joudah
The bigger picture is that over the last 30 years, we have spent $1 trillion waging a drug war that has failed in any meaningful way to reduce drug addiction or abuse, and yet has siphoned an enormous amount of resources away from other public services, especially education.
Michelle Alexander
Nobody will believe in you unless you believe in yourself.
I am happy that I could collaborate with poets like O.N.V. Kurup and Yusufali Kechery in my career; they wrote meaningful lyrics, which made my songs last longer.
Mohan Sithara
Be yourself, build meaningful relationships, follow your dreams.
Ray William Johnson
Music used to be essential and meaningful, but now it’s disposable.
Brian McKnight
Telling the truth is the slow, mundane, difficult route to a meaningful life. Anything else is cheating.
Donald Miller
As a writer, I try to turn my feelings and experiences into a different form entirely, something that gives me mastery over them and also makes them meaningful to other people.
Scott Spencer
That’s the great thing about the ‘Sin City’ movies. Each little slot is incredibly meaningful, and each character has their own moment.
Juno Temple
When I enter the voting booth, I’m going to ask myself, what do I prefer for Israel and its relationship with the United States: meaningful action or empty rhetoric? To me the answer is clear: I’ll take another four years of Mr. Obama’s steadfast support over Mr. Romney’s sweet nothings.
Haim Saban
Fiction is socially meaningful.
David Guterson
We already spend too few days in Congress working on meaningful legislation; we simply can’t afford to waste more time on legislation that doesn’t move the needle to improve the lives of everyday Americans.
John Delaney
I wanted to write some lyrics that had some meaning to them, lyrics that were meaningful to me and hopefully people can take something from that.
Adam Rich
If somebody responds positively to what I’m doing – if there is a connection – that can be very meaningful. If someone reacts with displeasure, confusion, hostility, well, that is not pleasant, and can often be upsetting.
Michael Hersch
But I think we both knew, even then, that what we had was something even more rare, and even more meaningful. I was going to be his friend, and was going to show him possibilities. And he, in turn, would become someone I could trust more than myself.
David Levithan
Day-to-day acts of service, whether for good or evil, may not seem important, but they are building cords of love that become so strong they can seldom be broken. Ours is to place our areas of love in proper perspective. Meaningful love always works for our eternal progress and not against it.
Marvin J. Ashton
You can retire from a job, but don’t ever retire from making extremely meaningful contributions in life.
Stephen Covey
I have learned not to read reviews. Period. And I hate reviewers. All of them, or at least all but two or three. Life is much simpler ignoring reviews and the nasty people who write them. Critics should find meaningful work.
John Grisham
I do not chase after anyone if you wanna walk out my life then I will hold the fu****g door open for you
Wiz Khalifa
Keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.
Marilyn Monroe
I have learned that there is more power in a good strong hug than in a thousand meaningful words.
Ann Hood
Today is an opportunity to do something positive. Today is your chance to add new value to your life and to your world. Make the commitment to fill this day with meaningful richness and purposeful effort. This is your day to live, so do so with vigor and enthusiasm.
Ralph Marston
Governments spend all their time trying to get big companies to relocate their headquarters, and they end up subsidizing the move with tax breaks. And companies that relocate their headquarters are often not meaningful job creators.
Brad Feld
Israel is prepared for a compromise. The majority of Israelis understand this compromise will be serious, will be meaningful, and will be painful.
Ehud Olmert
Every great architect is – necessarily – a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time, his day, his age.
Frank Lloyd Wright
The poem is a little myth of man’s capacity of making life meaningful.
Robert Penn Warren
Early in my career, I was really spoiled with a beautiful project. I got such a good start that I thought, ‘Why would I ever take a step back?’ Why would I take on something that wasn’t meaningful – to me, if nobody else – and powerful and groundbreaking?
America Ferrera
The thought content of ghazals must be meaningful, related to life, it’s emotions of joy and sorrow. It must have the human touch, it should not be phoney.
Jagjit Singh
Just because the past taps you on the shoulder, does not mean you have to look back.
Wiz Khalifa
I think a cyber-terrorism attack is overblown, though the threat exists. I think al Qaeda and other groups are more interested in symbolic terrorism, like what they did to the World Trade Center – suicide bombers or something that really has an effect and is meaningful to people.
Kevin Mitnick
It’s interesting that in the Bible, in the book of Ecclesiastes, the only practical advice given about living a meaningful life is to find a job you like, enjoy your marriage, and obey God. It’s as though God is saying, Write a good story, take somebody with you, and let me help.
Donald Miller
Evolution is one of the most powerful and important ideas ever developed in the history of science. Every question it raises leads to new answers, new discoveries, and new smarter questions. The science of evolution is as expansive as nature itself. It is also the most meaningful creation story that humans have ever found.
Bill Nye
WeWork has always believed that we are better together, and a large part of that is learning from others through meaningful connections and experiences.
Adam Neumann
It seems we’re always in transition and that it’s more about trends than it is about what’s meaningful.
Marlee Matlin
You want to do something a little bit meaningful, because we’re not saving the planet or anything, but we want to contribute in a positive way, in a way that makes a difference or makes somebody feel something.
Chelsea Handler
You probably thinking they you’ve seen someone like me before. But I’m a G and they don’t make em like me anymore.
Wiz Khalifa
Look everywhere you can to cut a little bit from your expenses. It will all add up to a meaningful sum.
Suze Orman
We have a new generation of very rich people who want to do more with their money than buy a lot of expensive toys. They want to live meaningful lives.
Peter Singer
That’s kind of my goal: to build a new row of meaningful tones.
Lee Konitz
Come to earth to taste our sadness, he whose glories knew no end;
by his life he brings us gladness, our Redeemer, Shepherd, Friend.
Leaving riches without number, born within a cattle stall;
this the everlasting wonder, Christ was born the Lord of all.
Charles Wesley
Winning starts with beginning.
Robert H. Schuller
Values are principles and ideas that bring meaning to the seemingly mundane experience of life. A meaningful life that ultimately brings happiness and pride requires you to respond to temptations as well as challenges with honor, dignity, and courage.
Laura Schlessinger
I want to do something that is meaningful. After working for all these years, I want to do better as an actor now and choose roles that are challenging and satisfying.
Payal Rohatgi
I was in theater school playing Lady Macbeth and doing these great dramatic parts, and then I got out into the real world and was auditioning for commercials, and just not getting to do anything that felt remotely meaningful.
Marielle Heller
Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune; but great minds rise above them.
Washington Irving
Schools shouldn’t have to choose between serving a student with special needs or cutting an art class, laying off teachers or using outdated textbooks. But these are the positions that far too many schools have been placed in, and only a meaningful acknowledgment of the problem can begin the process of getting them out.
Clint Smith
All who joy would win must share it. Happiness was born a Twin.
Lord Byron
Tatted like a Mexican, fresher than a freshman.
Wiz Khalifa
If there’s no magic of cinema, you only have the plain imagery of television. We are moving more and more towards a world devoid of meaningful experiences. We’re going to the surface.
Laszlo Nemes
When you are eighty years old, and in a quiet moment of reflection narrating for only yourself the most personal version of your life story, the telling that will be most compact and meaningful will be the series of choices you have made. In the end, we are our choices.
Jeff Bezos
I believe that Americans are entitled.
