Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Bill and Hillary Clinton have one central idea in their uncluttered, ambitious minds: Hillary in 2008. Let Bush get re-elected, use the ’04 primaries and general election to clean out the underbrush of competing Democratic candidates, and proceed unimpeded to the ’08 nomination.

Geoffrey Cowan
Few Christians go into media or the arts today, or see it as a primary mission field or battlefield. But it is.

Albert Einstein

Start from the body, and then go, slowly slowly, deeper. And don’t start with anything else unless you have first solved the primary. If your body is tense, don’t start with the mind. Wait. Work on the body. And just small things are of immense help.

Shane Claiborne
Veganism has given me a higher level of awareness and spirituality, primary because the energy associated with eating has shifted to other areas.

Dexter Scott King
What is your Primary Aim? Where is the script to make your dreams come true?

Ashwin Sanghi

Amy Cuddy

A. J. Liebling

Every society needs educated people, but the primary responsibility of educated people is to bring wisdom back into the community and make it available to others so that the lives they are leading make sense.
Vine Deloria Jr.
The primary and literal meaning of the Bible, then, is its centripetal or poetic meaning.
Northrop Frye
Creativity is the key to success in the future, and primary education is where teachers can bring creativity in children at that level.
Abdul Kalam
The primary place where most people lose energy is in their relationships with others. That means you lose your energy in your interactions with the people you know best.
Frederick Lenz
The primary function of a theatre is not to please itself, or even to please its audience. It is to serve talent.
Robert Brustein
The primary factor is proportions.
Arne Jacobsen
My preference is that we beat him [Donald Trump] outright in the primary process. And I believe that’s exactly what’s going to happen here in the next few weeks, especially as we move to winner-take-all states. The terrain begins to change.
Marco Rubio
When the American spirit was in its youth, the language of America was different: Liberty, sir, was the primary object.
Patrick Henry
What a perversion of the normal order of things! … to make power the primary and central object of the social system, and Liberty but its satellite.
James Madison
Marco Rubio said he was personally open over a long period of time to offering a path to citizenship for immigrants here illegally. Rubio’s work on a comprehensive immigration bill is one of his biggest vulnerabilities with Republican primary voters.
Ted Cruz
Still, it is the primary right of men to die and kill for the land they live in, and to punish with exceptional severity all members of their own race who have warmed their hands at the invaders’ hearth.
Winston Churchill
A competitive primary does not divide us, it prepares us and we will win.
Mitt Romney
God will give you anything as long as you understand that he is the primary and not the secondary.
T. D. Jakes
In the war upon the powers of darkness, prayer is the primary and mightiest weapon, both in aggressive war upon them and their works; in the deliverance of men from their power; and against them as a hierarchy of powers opposed to Christ and His Church.
Jessie Penn-Lewis
One of my opponents [Romney] recently said that it would take an act of God for me to win this primary. I agree with him.
Rick Santorum
Morality is a venereal disease. Its primary stage is called virtue; its secondary stage, boredom; its tertiary stage, syphilis.
Karl Kraus
Each and every day health centers provide high-quality primary and preventive care to our constituents.
Jan Schakowsky
That distinctive presidential conduct is now gone forever, banished to the snows of yesteryear by Barack Obama. From the beginning of his presidency to the present, he has spoken specifically and in unprecedented fashion of Republicans as his rivals, his stumbling blocks, the primary cause of his troubles.
John Podhoretz
People need to realize that their thoughts are more primary than their genes, because the environment, which is influenced by our thoughts, controls the genes.
Bruce H. Lipton
It’s clear all the way through history that practices are primary and beliefs are secondary.
Robert Neelly Bellah
We teach what we like to learn and the reason many people go into teaching is vicariously to reexperience the primary joy experienced the first time they learned something they loved.
Stephen Brookfield
Plan B is if Hillary [Clinton] is indicted. Then, even if I missed the deadlines for the first couple of primaries, I’ll be there to rescue the party. All bets are off.
Joe Biden
Words, in their primary or immediate signification, stand for nothing but the ideas in the mind of him who uses them.
John Locke
I have been dwelling upon downtowns. This is not because mixtures of primary uses are unneeded elsewhere in cities. On the contrary they are needed, and the success of mixtures downtown (on in the most intensive portions of cities, whatever they are called) is related to the mixture possible in other part of cities.
Jane Jacobs
The primary role of the music industry is to have artists be heard above the rest. It’s a big needle in a haystack problem. The Internet has the service and tools to find the needle in a haystack.
Ali Partovi
Close investigation will show that the primary cause of oppression and injustice, of unrighteousness, irregularity and disorder, is the people’s lack of religious faith and the fact that they are uneducated.
Now that virtually every career is an option for ambitious girls, it can no longer be considered regressive or reactionary to reintroduce discussion of marriage and motherhood to primary education. We certainly do not want to return to the simplistic duality of home economics classes for girls and wood shop for boys.
Camille Paglia
Women’s history is the primary tool for women’s emancipation.
Gerda Lerner
A lot of people criticize the primaries, but I think they are absolutely essential to the education of the President of the United States.
Pierre Salinger
Over the weekend, John Kerry – the big John Kerry juggernaut moves on – he won primaries in Washington D.C., Nevada and, I think, Canada. And he’s so confident that he’s started nailing that intern again.
David Letterman
God’s primary concerns have to do with your well-being, not your performance.
Vinita Hampton Wright
I support the recommendations made by the International Crisis Group. The primary responsibility is for Kosovo Albanians to demonstrate that their treatment of minorities is adequate.
Emma Bonino
This partisan decision by a packed GOP state Supreme Court takes away worker’s rights to bargain for a safe place to work. It underscores the need to vote for me in Aug. 12th primary. As governor, I will call a special session of the Legislature on day one to restore workers’ rights, health care and retirement.
Chris Larson
Leadership produces change. That is its primary function
John P. Kotter
My primary interest has always been about exploring the human psyche and humanity.
Dana Snyder
Reagan, people claimed, was too old to run for president and to be elected. But he proved himself such a vigorous campaigner in the primary system that he overcame those beliefs.
Geoffrey Cowan
Occupying armies have responsibilities, not rights. Their primary responsibility is to withdraw as quickly and expeditiously as possible, in a manner determined by the occupied population.
Noam Chomsky
The primary role of the church is to reflect God’s value system in society and to train people in that value system. It’s not the government’s responsibility, nor are they equipped to do that on the most local level where the need exists.
Tony Evans
People are social beings and want interaction and social learning is the primary form of learning, just as word of mouth advertising is the highest form of advertising.
Stephen Covey
Most families need both parents to work. Moms need to be able to work and earn fair pay and have the flexibility in their jobs to also be primary caretakers.
Joan Blades
Metaphysics is universal and is exclusively concerned with primary substance. … And here we will have the science to study that which is, both in its essence and in the properties which it has.
The sense of motion in painting and sculpture has long been considered as one of the primary elements of the composition.
Alexander Calder
One of the effects of a safe and civilized life is an immense over sensitiveness which makes all the primary emotions somewhat disgusting.
George Orwell
The will to originality is not the will to be peculiar and unlike anybody else; it means the desire to derive one’s consciousness from its primary source.
Nikolai Berdyaev
I refuse to believe in a god who is the primary cause of conflict in the world, preaches racism, sexism, homophobia, and ignorance, and then sends me to hell if I’m ‘bad’.
Mark Fuhrman
In a Republican primary every candidate is going to come in front of you and say I’m the most conservative guy that ever lived. Goshdarnit, whodidily, I’m conservative. You know what, talk is cheap. The word tells us you shall know them by their fruits … Look every candidate in the eye and say ‘Don’t talk, show me.’
Ted Cruz
Pastries . . . can only be appreciated to the full extent of their subtlety when they are not eaten to assuage our hunger, when the orgy of their sugary sweetness is not destined to full some primary need but to coat our palate with all the benevolence of the world.
Muriel Barbery
I think conventional wisdom is that time is not on our side. But there are a number of members of Congress who have primaries and when those primaries are done, they may be more inclined to address the issue of comprehensive immigration reform.
John McCain
When I was in my 40s, Microsoft was my primary activity.
Bill Gates
I really can’t hate more than 5 or 10 years. Wouldn’t it be terrible to be always burdened with those primary emotions you had at one time?
Han Suyin
The problem is not that public schools do not work well, but rather that they do. The first goal and primary function of schools is not to educate good people, but good citizens. It is the function which we normally label state indoctrination.
Wendy McElroy
Remember that your thoughts are the primary cause of everything.
Rhonda Byrne
City parks serve, day in and day out, as the primary green spaces for the majority of Americans.
Bruce Babbitt
The philosopher should be a man willing to listen to every suggestion,but determined to judge for himself.He should not be a respector of persons,but of things.Truth should be his primary object.
Michael Faraday
[Donna] Brazil warned the campaign that [Hillary] Clinton might face a question over lead poisoning during a CNN primary debate, showing her partisan ties.
Donna Brazile
This may be the primary purpose of dogs: to restore our sense of wonder and to help us maintain it, to make us consider that we should trust our intuition as they trust theirs and to help us realize that a thing known intuitively can be as real as anything known by material experience.
Dean Koontz
No amount of charters, direct primaries, or short ballots will make a democracy out of an illiterate people.
Walter Lippmann
Television will enormously enlarge the eye’s range, and, like radio, will advertise the Elsewhere. Together with the tabs, the mags, and the movies, it will insist that we forget the primary and the near in favor of the secondary and the remote.
E. B. White
This new plastic idea will ignore the particulars of appearance, that is to say, natural form and colour. On the contrary it should find its expression in the abstraction of form and colour, that is to say, in the straight line and the clearly defined primary colour.
Piet Mondrian
If the Iraqis fail to implement the reforms, if they fail to get a handle on the violence, there’s nothing the United States can do, militarily or otherwise, that can solve those problems. They have to assume the primary responsibility to govern themselves.
Leon Panetta
Learning to focus and pay attention, if only for a short time, has been identified as a primary key to the development of human effectiveness.
Robert Genn
The first goal and primary function of the U.S. public school is not to educate good people, but good citizens. It is the function which we call – in enemy nations – ‘state indoctrination.’
Jonathan Kozol
Only brand names register in the mind… What you should generally do is take a regular word and use it out of context to connote the primary attribute of your brand.
Al Ries
It is, I believe, the primary charm of poetry to give the lesson of mirage, that is, to show the fragile and vibrant movement of creation, in which the word is in a certain way human quintessence, prayer.
J.M.G. Le ClГ©zio
This is the risk: the primary word can only be spoken with the whole being. He who gives himself to it may withhold nothing of himself.
Martin Buber
English is not the primary language for universities in China, Korea, and Japan, but they are being evaluated on the basis of publications in English and courses taught in English.
Henry Rosovsky
The best way to make money is not to have money as your primary goal. I’ve seen great people come into the business world primarily motivated to make money. Almost without exception they failed.
Ross Perot
I came out of the Civil Rights Movement, and I had a different kind of focus than most people who have just the academic background as their primary training experience
Bernice Johnson Reagon
There’s been this attempt to block Donald Trump, in primary candidates and Democrats, that – to try to make everything he says some sort of extreme overstatement.
Jeff Sessions
Disinformation is a large part of its[CIA] covert action responsibility, and the American people are the primary target of its lies.
Ralph McGehee
Our primary identity has become that of being consumers – not mothers, teachers, or farmers, but of consumers. We shop and shop and shop.
Annie Leonard
My primary calling, I always knew since the age of 11, was as a composer, and so that had to take priority.
Gunther Schuller
Moving forward, the best way is going to be something that is going to be a collective decision, that is made, of course, with President-elect [Donald] Trump having the primary say as to how to move forward. But all those opinions will be in the room.
Reince Priebus
The commercial theatre may still be considered one of New York’s primary tourist attractions, but . . . there is no longer an audience for serious Broadway plays. . . . Perhaps we should acknowledge that, having lost its traditional audience, Broadway can never again be a home for new plays.
Robert Brustein
Customer service will become the primary value added function of every business.
Bill Gates
Imagination is the primary gift of human consciousness.
Ken Robinson
The strength that comes from human collaboration is the central truth behind civilisation’s success and the primary reason why cities existwe must free ourselves from our tendency to see cities as their buildings, and remember that the real city is made of flesh, not concrete.
Edward Glaeser
Worship is a posture of life that takes as its primary purpose the understanding of what it really means to love and revere God.
Ravi Zacharias
Tonight was the CNN primary debate with the four remaining candidates. It was kind of a change for Newt Gingrich. Usually when he’s arguing with three people at once, it’s his wife, his ex-wife, and his mistress.
Jay Leno
Human beings are made of body, mind and spirit. Of these, spirit is primary, for it connects us to the source of everything, the eternal field of consciousness.
Deepak Chopra
The practice of yoga induces a primary sense of measure and proportion. Reduced to our own body, our first instrument, we learn to play it, drawing from it maximum resonance and harmony.
Yehudi Menuhin
The primary motivation in the world of television is fear. People are scared to death. Ambition and enthusiasm and interest and the desire to excel are secondary. Because fear is an enormous motivating force, many in the medium are afraid to make decisions, take chances, do anything innovative.
Sally Quinn
It is one of the basic tenets of fascist leadership to keep primary libidinal energy on an unconscious level so as to divert its manifestations in a way suitable to political ends.
Theodor Adorno
My primary goal is to create prosperity.
Bashar al-Assad
The primary metaphor for the Easter season is the church as the resurrected people living a resurrected spirituality. Because of Easter we are in union with Christ and are called to live in our baptismal identity in his resurrection. This essential theme of Easter cannot be communicated in a day. It takes a season.
Robert E. Webber
My two primary areas of focus have been open-space conservation and education, and I expect those to remain my priorities in the future. The Irvine open space and parklands provide serenity and balance to our unique Orange County lifestyle.
Donald Bren
I think a lot of Democrats I know, who will vote in the Democratic primary and vote for the Democratic nominee and later general, they go back and forth between two feelings. One is oh, my God, I`m terrified. Maybe this guy will be formidable in a general.
Chris Hayes
It may be laid down as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every Citizen who enjoys the protection of a Free Government, owes not only a proportion of his property, but even of his personal services to the defense of it.
George Washington
I’m quite sure that all true professional artists, of every description, in all walks of life, whether their craft is painting, music, sculpture, medicine or anything have one primary concern – mankind.
Chico Hamilton
The prosperity of commerce is now perceived and acknowledged by all enlightened statesmen to be the most useful as well as the most productive source of national wealth, and has accordingly become a primary object of their political cares.
Alexander Hamilton
The primary things that people do on the Facebook is they use it to share with their friends and the people around them and their community, and they use it to keep in touch with people.
Mark Zuckerberg
There are two primary ways of studying Zen. Either an individual will enter into a Zen monastery and study with a Zen master there, or they will study with a Zen master who lives in the contemporary world.
Frederick Lenz
I then realized that I could never be satisfied again with the mere natural charm of my voice, that I had to constantly paint when singing, melting all the colors, expressing reds and blacks that had to be less primary but bursting with subtly colored combinations.
Placido Domingo
If success in selling is my primary interest, I am not primarily a writer, but a salesperson. If I teach success in selling as the writer’s primary objective, I am not teaching writing; I’m teaching, or pretending to teach, the production and marketing of a commodity.
Ursula K. Le Guin
The extremists took over the primary process.
Arlen Specter
Women … do not have to forsake the “wisdom of the heart” and become men. They need only transfer the primary force of their supportiveness to themselves and to each other but never to the point of self-sacrifice.
Phyllis Chesler
Sex and race, because they are easy and visible differences, have been the primary ways of organizing human beings into superior and inferior groups and into the cheap labour on which this system still depends.
Gloria Steinem
Because the New Testament provides the primary historical source for information on the resurrection, many critics during the 19th century attacked the reliability of these biblical documents.
Josh McDowell
One of the primary motivations for the series is that I never really felt that I was a person who could explain verbally what I thought all that well.
Lev Yilmaz
There are so many young talented actors today whose work I respect and admire – Ryan Gosling is probably primary among them. I take inspiration from so many amazing actors.
Daniel Sunjata
The circle is the synthesis of the greatest oppositions. It combines the concentric and the eccentric in a single form and in equilibrium. Of the three primary forms, it points most clearly to the fourth dimension.
Wassily Kandinsky
What had begun as a movement to free all black people from racist oppression became a movement with its primary goal the establishment of black male patriarchy.
Bell Hooks
John McCain was victimized in the South Carolina primary.
Mark Shields
The primary success factor is knowing how to learn from others and rely on yourself.
Denis Waitley
I think three debates [primary debates] is the right number. I think that, uh, they’ll be extremely well watched. There are those who will say it will be one of the highest-rated shows in television history, if not the highest.
Donald Trump
When we talk mathematics, we may be discussing a secondary language built on the primary language of the nervous system.
John von Neumann
It has been said of many modern Christian theologians that their primary aim is to find ways to express disbelief as belief.
Rodney Stark
If the primary ends up being a hard hitting, bloody battle, well so be it. Let’s get ready for the general election
Steve Lonegan
I was in my mid 20s when email finally took off. Until then, the phone was my primary way of connecting with the people in my life.
Rainbow Rowell
Perfectionism is a self destructive and addictive belief system that fuels this primary thought: If I look perfect, and do everything perfectly, I can avoid or minimize the painful feelings of shame, judgment, and blame.
BrenГ© Brown
Anaximander used to assert that the primary cause of all things was the Infinite,-not defining exactly whether he meant air or water or anything else.
Diogenes Laertius
There’s only one thing in life for a woman; it’s to be a mother… A woman artist must be… capable of making primary sacrifices.
Mary Cassatt
You might be a redneck if your primary source of income is the pawn shop.
Jeff Foxworthy
The reason is they failed to learned the primary lesson we should have learned from when Long Term Capital Management went belly up ten years ago. That is, investments that seem uncorrelated can be correlated simply because we’re interested in it.
Richard Thaler
It is quite exciting, incidentally, to know that the Genesis account of the creation of mankind through its first parentage in Adam and Eve bears the marks of derivation from the primary Egyptian symbolic depiction.
Alvin Boyd Kuhn
A 2001 survey of business owners with MBAs conducted by the Rochester Institute of Technology found that money was the primary motivator for only 29% of women, versus 76% of men. Women prioritized flexibility, fulfillment, autonomy and safety.
Warren Farrell
If God has created the world, his primary worry was certainly not to make its understanding easy for us
Albert Einstein
[While] the primary responsibility, as we all acknowledge, (falls) with the family, … Our homes, our families, our children’s minds are being flooded by a tide of violence.
John McCain
Of all the weapons discussed in this book, nothing is more important than your primary firearm. Keep it cleaned, keep it oiled, keep it loaded, keep it close. With a cool head, steady hand, and plenty of ammunition, one human is more than a match for an army of zombies.
Max Brooks
There are other relations besides reality, which the mind is capable of grasping and which also are primary, like chance, illusion, the fantastic, the dream.
Louis Aragon
Hitler and Mussolini were only the primary spokesmen for the attitude of domination and craving for power that are in the heart of almost everyone. Until the source is cleared, there will always be confusion and hate, wars and class antagonisms.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
The investor’s primary interest lies in acquiring and holding suitable securities at suitable prices.
Benjamin Graham
Everybody should be interested in access to primary and secondary education for everybody.
Paul Farmer
On all levels primary, and secondary and undergraduate – mathematics is taught as an isolated subject with few, if any, ties to the real world. To students, mathematics appears to deal almost entirely with things whlch are of no concern at all to man.
Morris Kline
The primary needs can be filled without language. We can eat, sleep, make love, build a house, bear children, without language. But we cannot ask questions. We cannot ask, ‘Who am I? Who are you? Why?
Madeleine L’Engle
The right of voting for representatives is the primary right by which other rights are protected. To take away this right is to reduce a man to slavery, for slavery consists in being subject to the will of another, and he that has not a vote in the election of representatives is in this case.
Thomas Paine
One of the primary tactics for enduring winning is daily learning.
Robin Sharma
To provide employment for the poor, and support for the indigent, is among the primary, and, at the same time, not least difficult cares of the public authority.
James Madison
If you allow one little sin to creep into your life, and think it doesn’t matter, it will grow and grow until it affects your whole spiritual life, deflecting you from your primary aim of serving God.
Angus Buchan
Campaigns and primaries can get ugly. There are always messy squabbles.
Joy-Ann Reid
Expressing love in the right language. We tend to speak our own love language, to express love to others in a language that would make us feel loved. But if it is not his/her primary love language, it will not mean to them what it would mean to us.
Gary Chapman
[A] society which makes freedom its primary goal will lose it, because it has made, not responsibility, but freedom from responsibility, its purpose. When freedom is the basic emphasis, it is not responsible speech which is fostered but irresponsible speech.
R.J. Rushdoony
My own fault. The equipment had safeties but your primary piece of protective equipment was your brain. There was a presumption that anyone entering this room was intelligent enough to keep away from hot things, sharp things, and things carrying large stores of momentum.
Max Barry
The primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the degenerate races.
Harry J. Anslinger
Prisons are woefully ill-equipped for their current role as the nations primary mental health facilities.
Jamie Fellner
Besides language and music, mathematics is one of the primary manifestations of the free creative power of the human mind.
Hermann Weyl
The emotional brain is highly attuned to symbolic meanings and to the mode Freud called the ‘primary process’ – the messages of metaphor, story, myth, the arts.
Daniel Goleman
The primary opportunity is to use a model or paradigm for describing ADD that’s not disease-based and doesn’t imply brain damage or what many children interpret as some type of retardation…a person must have hope; this model restores self-esteem, thus empowering individuals to change.
Thom Hartmann
I think the lack of critical engagement with the food that we eat demonstrates the extent to which the commodity form has become the primary way in which we perceive the world.
Angela Davis
Generally, old media don’t die. They just have to grow old gracefully. Guess what, we still have stone masons. They haven’t been the primary purveyors of the written word for a while now of course, but they still have a role because you wouldn’t want a TV screen on your headstone.
Douglas Adams
In the Democratic primary in 2008, the Obama team devised a strategy to use the caucuses and a complicated system of awarding delegates in the state primaries to sneak up on Hillary Clinton and establish a lead Obama never surrendered.
John Podhoretz
In primary school when I was 6-7 years old, I always go to theater with my uncle, and I don’t know why I like the atmosphere, dark only. The screen has some lighting, that kind of things, you can see the movie star and so that’s why I like movies.
Andrew Lau
The primary reason we lose faith is because we forget the faithfulness of God. Maybe that’s why the word ‘remember’ is repeated 250 times in Scripture.
Mark Batterson
The primary sign of a well-ordered mind is a man’s ability to remain in one place and linger in his own company
Seneca the Younger
We should never lose sight of the underlying essence of a market-a place where buyers and sellers come together. Every other feature-whether crafted by tradition or technology-exists only to serve that primary purpose.
Arthur Levitt Jr
Oneness of the Divine. It may be given a thousand names such as The Primary Cause / God / Energy / I. All that is created has its Self this Oneness.
Sathya Sai Baba
Louis Armstrong was the primary contributor to jazz music in the 20th century. His improvisational skills served as the principal model for all who came after him, regardless of one’s chosen instrument.
Ellis Marsalis, Jr.
The purpose of spiritual life is not to create some special state of mind. A state of mind is always temporary. The purpose is to work directly with the most primary elements of our body and our mind, to see the ways we get trapped by our fears, desires, and anger, to learn directly our capacity for freedom.
Jack Kornfield
Two primary ways to keep volunteers motivated – Food and T-shirts.
Andy Stanley
The primary ingredient for progress is optimism. The unwavering belief that something can be better drives the human race forward.
Simon Sinek
The further we advance in knowledge, the more simplicity shall we discover in those primary rules that regulate all the apparently endless, complicated, and multiform operations of the Godhead.
Charles Caleb Colton
The fact that women are the primary care-givers is a problem for women and men
Caroline Criado-Perez
The primary threat to nature and people today comes from centralising and monopolising power and control. Not until diversity is made the logic of production will there be a chance for sustainability, justice and peace. Cultivating and conserving diversity is no luxury in our times: it is a survival imperative.
Vandana Shiva
In New York, we had primary elections for mayor. To improve their chances, all five candidates changed their name to Rudy Giuliani.
Conan O’Brien
In television, the 60-minute series, ‘The Wire’ and ‘Mad Men’ and so on, the writer is the primary creative artist.
Salman Rushdie
Art’s primary social function is to define the communal self, which includes redefining it when the community is changing.
Thomas McEvilley
The primary duty of an exception handler is to get the error out of the lap of the programmer and into the surprised face of the user. Provided you keep this cardinal rule in mind, you can’t go far wrong.
Verity Stob
Rep. James Clyburn, the state’s only black congressman — controls 20 percent to 25 percent of the primary vote.
Jim Clyburn
Phones with numerical keypads worked best for dialing phone calls. Incidentally, phone calls tend to be the primary function of a phone. ‘Smartphones’ completely ignore these basic facts, resulting in some of the least intelligent devices I’ve seen yet. Oh the irony.
Ashly Lorenzana
Ignorance is the primary source of all misery and vice.
Victor Cousin
Happiness is a by-product. It is not a primary product of life. It is a thing which you suddenly realize you have because you’re so delighted to be doing something which perhaps has nothing whatever to do with happiness.
Robertson Davies
Human life, the person is no longer perceived as a primary value to be respected and protected, especially if poor or disabled, if not yet useful – such as the unborn child – or no longer needed – such as the elderly.
Pope Francis
Since the reduction of risk factors is the scientific basis for primary prevention, the World Health Organization promotes the development of an integrated strategy for prevention of several diseases, rather than focusing on individual ones.
Gro Harlem Brundtland
The Donald Trump I knew as a young reporter in New York was nothing if not media friendly. And for most of the past Republican primary, he was the most accessible major candidate. No one else was close.
Jonathan Karl
We have got to lose the primary in order to win the general.
Sean Hannity
I’m slowly becoming a convert to the principle that you can’t motivate people to do things, you can only demotivate them. The primary job of the manager is not to empower but to remove obstacles.
Scott Adams
There is a massive disconnect between requirements of our education system and the framed policies. Education policies in our country [India] are not thought through enough.
Shaheen Mistri
Jazz is a music that really allows a person to express his deepest self, his most personal self – Africa being the primary source of jazz. Naturally, improvisation and swing are a part of jazz, improvisation being the key.
Harold Land
The primary purpose of education is not to teach you to earn your bread, but to make every mouthful sweeter.
James Rowland Angell
It’s not at all good when your cancer is ‘palpable’ from the outside. Especially when, as at this stage, they didn’t even know where the primary source was. Carcinoma works cunningly from the inside out. Detection and treatment often work more slowly and gropingly, from the outside in.
Christopher Hitchens
The primary object of non-co-operation is nowhere stated to be paralysis of the Government. The primary object is self-purification.
Mahatma Gandhi
One legislator accused me of having a 19th century attitude on law and order. That is a totally false charge. I have an 18th century attitude. That is when the Founding Fathers made it clear that the safety of law abiding citizens should be one of government’s primary concerns.
Jeffrey Gitomer
I hope to see Ruby help every programmer in the world to be productive, and to enjoy programming, and to be happy. That is the primary purpose of Ruby language.
Yukihiro Matsumoto
Advertising agencies primary goal is to advertise and sell themselves to the client. Selling the product to the public comes second.
Mark Jackson
Matt Wilson, the colorist, has this great palate [in Paper Girls] that brings up all these emotions and this feel of the ’80s without being actually as kind of as bright and primary as it could have been.
Cliff Chiang
I got a feeling I had loads when I was in primary school, ’cause I had red hair; you know, like Duracell.
Aphex Twin
The primary reason for a tariff is that it enables the exploitation of the domestic consumer by a process indistinguishable from sheer robbery.
Albert J. Nock
After my stellar first grade academic achievements, I continued to perform well in the city primary schools – except for penmanship, which was not my forte.
Vernon L. Smith
Sexuality is the primary focus of our culture, and almost no one has come to resolve it.
Frederick Lenz
Lead worshipers: Our primary task is simply to help others worship.
Paul Baloche
I’m not going to name anybody, but I think there are about five to 10 global institutions that will emerge as our primary competitors across the board. They’re adjusting to this new world, like we are.
Jamie Dimon
The most effective CEOs have a primary source for tracking their markets. They meet with their teams frequently enough to keep innovation flowing, to reduce and focus costs, to be energized. They create a tight agenda and they set high goals.
Michael J. Silverstein
We safeguard the right to attribution very strongly. After all, what we are fighting for is the intent of copyright as it is described in the US constitution: the promotion of culture. Many artists are using recognition as their primary driving force to create culture.
Rick Falkvinge
Actors are part of a certain percentage of people on this planet who have an emotional vocabulary as a primary experience. It’s as if their life is experienced emotionally and then that is translated intellectually or conceptually into the performance.
Mary McDonnell
I don’t like when things don’t match. I love some Eighties fashion, like Grace Jones but primary colours only work in certain situations.
Kemp Muhl
Offer someone the opportunity to rebuild a company or reinvent an industry as the primary incentive, and it will attract those drawn to the challenge first and the money second.
Simon Sinek
I believe primary and secondary education is the bedrock of any sustainable society.
Nita Ambani
Being is central, and Being is now. The fulfillment of your life is not going to happen through anything. The outer activities in your life are secondary. What is Primary is Being.
Eckhart Tolle
There are so many things that we could do but education would be our primary need in this regard. And in obtaining this education we need to also educate ourselves and others to the truths that we have possessed from the beginning that allow men to live in harmony with one another.
Leonard Peltier
I had supported Governor George W. Bush over Senator John McCain in the 2000 Rhode Island presidential primary.
Lincoln Chafee
America is the primary engine of growth in the world and we are the only beacon of free trade left, and open markets.
Jon Huntsman, Jr.
Business is a primary arrangement on God’s part for people to love one another and serve one another.
Dallas Willard
The holiday is clearly growing in importance for the industry. Halloweens fun, enjoyable and doesn’t require a big investment to celebrate. The primary focus is the child and families typically do all they can to make sure the children have fun.
Richard Hastings
Woman’s primary place is in the home, where she is to rear children and abide by the righteous counsel of her husband.
Bruce R. McConkie
Liberty and freedom were the primary reason that people wanted to come here. They wanted to escape bondage, slavery, tyranny, poverty, whatever, where they lived. It was America that promised a much better life.
Rush Limbaugh
The United States is the most innovative country in the world. But our leadership could slip away if we fail to properly fund primary, secondary and higher education.
Jeff Bingaman
True discernment means not only distinguishing the right from the wrong; it means distinguishing the primary from the secondary, the essential from the indifferent, and the permanent from the transient. And, yes, it means distinguishing between the good and the better, and even between the better and the best.
Sinclair B. Ferguson
I got mugged about six months ago. The oddest thing about the entire situation, though, was that I wasn’t afraid, which is strange because basically I experience my life through two primary emotions: fear and suppressed fear.
Dana Gould
If anybody asks what Sufism is, what kind of religion is it, the answer is that Sufism is the religion of the heart, the religion in which the thing of primary importance is to seek God in the heart of mankind.
Hazrat Inayat Khan
Tranvestism is far more common among men, I noted, because it originates in the primary relation of mother and son.
Camille Paglia
Churches are not the kingdom of God, but are primary and inevitable expressions, outposts, and instrumentalities of presence of the kingdom among us. They are ‘societies’ of Jesus.
Dallas Willard
The primary aim of modern warfare … is to use up the products of the machine without raising the general standard of living.
George Orwell
Be sure that the reason you are in the business is not to be a star, but because you love the craft of acting. If you have a real passion for it and acting is what you want to do every day, you are much more likely to be successful. If being a star is your primary goal, you may end up being very disappointed.
Donna Mills
The primary purpose of software estimation is not to predict a project’s outcome; it is to determine whether a project’s targets are realistic enough to allow the project to be controlled to meet them.
Steve McConnell
The treatment of children in Indian residential schools is a sad chapter in our history… Two primary objectives of the residential schools system were to remove and isolate children from the influence of their homes, families, traditions and cultures, and to assimilate them into the dominant culture.
Stephen Harper
If you’re honest with yourself, you’re going to find out whether you truly love America, or whether your primary allegiance is to the Republican party.
Vincent Bugliosi
The health of the second amendment is the primary indicator of the overall health of the nation.
John Longenecker
Consciousness even in my sleep changes primary colors. The features of my face melt like a wax doll in the fire. And who can consent to see in the mirror the mere face of man?
Czeslaw Milosz
The point is that you see candidates running in these different kinds of contests. A primary shows you something that’s different from a state party convention, which shows you something that is different than what a caucus shows you.
Michael Beschloss
I know it’s a lot harder for women who don’t have enough help, but the truth is, no matter how much money you have, if you want to stay involved with your children and don’t want to lose being a primary parent to them, you’re still in the game.
Patricia Richardson
I was very aggressive as a child. At primary school in London my attitude was ‘If you don’t do what I say, I’ll knowk you out’, and I was eventually expelled for fighting.
Lennox Lewis
The higher education has always appealed to the South Asian social leaders across all the countries in South Asia. But primary education has been neglected. The oddity, by the way, is if you look at the contrast in India, there are some areas like Kerala where there’s a long history of educational development.
Amartya Sen
As our larynxes descended, we were able to make sounds with our mouths in new and far more expressive ways. Verbal language soon overtook physical gesturing as the primary means of communication for all human beings except Italians. (Earth (The Book), p. 36)
Jon Stewart
Discipline, for the Christian, begins with the body. We have only one. It is this body that is the primary material given to us for sacrifice. We cannot give our hearts to God and keep our bodies for ourselves.
Elisabeth Elliot
Bernie Sanders lost the Democratic presidential nomination to Hillary Clinton, but he won more than 12 million votes in the primaries and was respectfully and elaborately saluted by Hillary Clinton, whom he has endorsed.
Scott Simon
Look at Jeb Bush, $115 million and Jeb actually stated in December 2014 that he was going to win this primary by not winning it. He was going to win it without winning base voters. They have made it clear they want nothing of their base. They’re embarrassed of their base.
Rush Limbaugh
Enlightenment, and the death which comes before it, is the primary business of Varanasi.
Tahir Shah
Sexual acts are one of the primary means by which we can act out our inarticulated inner lives.
Sallie Tisdale
We cannot rely on our native tongue if our spouse does not understand it. If we want them to feel the love we are trying to communicate, we must express it in his or her primary love language.
Gary Chapman
I support concrete and progressive immigration reform based on three primary criteria: family reunification, economic contributions, and humanitarian concerns.
Jeff Bingaman
The primary skill of a manager consists of knowing how to make assignments and picking the right people to carry out those assignments
Lee Iacocca
The primary purpose of adoption is to provide a home for a child, not a child for a home.
Virginia Linder
My primary goal of hacking was the intellectual curiosity, the seduction of adventure.
Kevin Mitnick
Writing is my primary way of expressing myself.
Annie Baker
Trivia rarely affect efficiency. Are all the machinations worth it, when their primary effect is to make the code less readable?
Brian Kernighan
Even after forty years of directing, shooting and editing films, when I collaborate with a male partner, people still perceive the man as the primary filmmaker.
Chris Hegedus
Calling means that everyone, everywhere, and in everything fulfills his or her (secondary) callings in response to God’s (primary) calling.
Os Guinness
Compared to 10 years ago the primary motivation for defection has gone from food, to freedom.
Kim Jong-un
It`s been a long and tumultuous relationship between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz that started off more or less as allies during the Republican primary. As Trump took the early lead in polls, Cruz stuck with the strategy of drafting off of the front-runner waiting for the moment to make his move.
Chris Hayes
It’s so logical and so simple. Fat is the backup fuel system. The role it plays in the body is that when there’s no carbohydrate around, fat will become the primary energy fuel. That’s pretty well known.
Robert Atkins
Playing President Clinton (in Primary Colors) was risky and challenging. Some people thought Saturday Night Fever was risky, because no one had danced in movies for years.
John Travolta
A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.
James Madison
There is no original or primary gender a drag imitates, but gender is a kind of imitation for which there is no original.
Judith Butler
Science fiction, because it ventures into no man’s lands, tends to meet some of the requirements posed by Jung in his explorations of archetypes, myth structures and self-understanding. It may be that the primary attraction of science fiction is that it helps us understand what it means to be human.
Frank Herbert
Not only are unpaid internships exploitative, they’re one of the main forces keeping publishing in this country a primary white middle-class industry, which has a direct knock-on effect on what gets published and how.
Deborah Smith
Freedoms are not only the primary ends of development, they are also among its principal means.
Amartya Sen
The primary goal of real education is not to deliver facts but to guide students to the truths that will allow them to take responsibility for their lives.
John Taylor Gatto
In the consumer economy taste is not the criterion in the marketing of expensive soft drinks, usability is not the primary criterion in the marketing of home and office appliances. We are surrounded with objects of desire, not objects of use.
Donald A. Norman
The primary symptom of a controller is denial, that is I can’t see its symptoms in myself.
Keith Miller
The primary wisdom is intuition. In that deep force, the last fact behind which analysis cannot go, all things find their origin.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The primary purpose of prayer is not to get something, but to know Someone.
David Platt
Twilight is about getting older and relationships – not about a murder mystery. It’s about love when you reach a certain age; nothing is in primary colors.
Robert Benton
Around the world we have girls in primary school at about the same rate now as boys, but keeping them in quality secondary schools is where the world is lagging. I’m seeing a lot of countries look at this now.
Melinda Gates
Self defense is a primary law of nature, which no subsequent law of society can abolish; the immediate gift of the Creator, obliges everyone to resist the first approaches of tyranny.
Elbridge Gerry
A coach’s primary function should be not to make better players, but to make better people
John Wooden
Freud’s translator accidentally omitted ‘fashion’ in the psychoanalytic list of primary instinctual drives; along with the drive to sexuality there is the drive to wear odd garments that may cut off circulation, occlude vision, make toes grow sideways, cause riots.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes
The mother is the early care giver and primary source of identification for all children…. A daughter continues to identify with the mother
Nancy Chodorow
The preservation of liberty, not the promotion of efficiency, is the primary justification for private property. Efficiency is a happy, though not accidental, by-product – and a most important by-product because liberty could not have survived if it had not also produced affluence.
Milton Friedman
Anyone who has obeyed nature by transmitting a piece of gossip experiences the explosive relief that accompanies the satisfying of a primary need.
Primo Levi
The primary cause of disease is in us, always in us.
Antoine Bechamp
Gratitude for the gift of life is the primary wellspring of all religions, the hallmark of the mystic, the source of all true art….It is a privilege to be alive in this time when we can choose to take part in the self-healing of our world.
Joanna Macy
What the head thinks, should be examined critically in the heart and this right decision should be carried out by the hands. This should be the primary product of the educational process.
Sai Baba
Our primary relationship is really with ourselves. Our relationships with other people constantly reflect exactly where we are in the process.
Shakti Gawain
This is government’s primary function – to keep us safe – and when large percentages in America don’t feel safe, they start asking: What am I paying my taxes for? What is government all about?
Charles Schumer
The Iran-Iraq war began the same year that I went to primary school, at the age of six.
Hassan Blasim
Well I teach in the History of Consciousness Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz. So that’s my primary work. I lecture on various campuses and in various communities across the country and other parts of the world.
Angela Davis
I know I earn less at my primary school than you do, but I don’t have to work as hard at my primary school.
Arthur Adamov
The Muslim world and its subset the countries of the Middle East have been left behind in the marathon of political, economic and human development. For that, there is a tendency to blame others as the primary cause
Recep Tayyip Erdogan
The primary benefit of practicing any art, whether well or badly, is that it enables one’s soul to grow.
Kurt Vonnegut
Human relationships are primary in all of living. When the gusty winds blow and shake our lives, if we know that people care about us, we may bend with the wind … but we won’t break.
Fred Rogers
It doesn’t take an incredible manner of analysis to reveal that our primary desires are incessantly stimulated to keep us basic consumers.
Russell Brand
The primary, the fundamental, the essential purpose of the United Nations is to keep peace. Everything it does which helps prevent World War III is good. Everything which does not further that goal, either directly or indirectly, is at best superfluous.
Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr.
Abraham Lincoln was interested in, in saving the Union. Well, most negroes have been tricked into thinking that Lincoln was a negro lover whose primary aim was to free them, and he died because he freed them.
Malcolm X
The primary means-of-reviva l that everyone agrees upon is extraordinary prayer.
Timothy Keller
The rise of the Net and the Web represents a victory for the counterculture and the subculture. The next generation, raised on the Net as their primary medium, won’t even know what consensus reality is.
R. U. Sirius
Conflict is the primary engine of creativity and innovation. People don’t learn by staring into a mirror; people learn by encountering difference.
Ronald A. Heifetz
Advertisers, not governments, are the primary censors of media content in the United States today.
C. Edwin Baker
Consciousness does matter. Matter is secondary. Consciousness is primary. Brain does not do consciousness, consciousness does the brain.
Amit Goswami
The primary contribution of government to this world is to elicit, entrench, enable, and finally to codify the most destructive aspects of the human personality.
Jeffrey Tucker
One way in which Americans have always been exceptional has been in our support for education. First we took the lead in universal primary education; then the “high school movement” made us the first nation to embrace widespread secondary education.
Paul Krugman
The eye is the first circle; the horizon which it forms is the second; and throughout nature this primary figure is repeated without end.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Oil is essential for a modern, industrial society. It’s unique, first of all, because it’s the primary source, at 40 percent, of the world’s entire supply of energy, and it’s irreplaceable in the transportation field; it provides 98 percent of world transportation energy.
Michael Klare
If you want the secondary greatness of recognized talent, focus first on primary greatness of character.
Stephen Covey
I believe we lose immortality because we have not conquered our opposition to death; we keep insisting on the primary, rudimentary idea: that the whole body should be kept alive. We should seek to preserve only the part that has to do with consciousness.
Adolfo Bioy Casares
I’m very sensitive. Because my mum was my primary emotional caregiver growing up, I found myself being pinned into dresses, darting her dresses, choosing her high heels for the evening or what to wear. I’m very much a mommy’s boy.
Tom Hardy
Our primary function is to create an emotion and our secondary function is to sustain that emotions.
Alfred Hitchcock
A vital difference between the professional man and a man of business is that money making to the professional man should, by virtue of his assumption, be incidental; to the businessman it is primary. Money has its limitations; while it may buy quantity, there is something beyond it and that is quality.
Frank Lloyd Wright
On the one hand, we had great filmic spectacles that brought in big audiences, adults as well as primary and secondary school students. On the other hand, there were attempts to create contemporary Polish film.
Andrzej Wajda
If you put me in charge of the medical research budget, I would cancel all primary research, I would cancel all new trials, for just one year, and I would spend the money exclusively on making sure that we make the best possible use of the clinical evidence that we already have.
Ben Goldacre
The stability of the internal medium is a primary condition for the freedom and independence of certain living bodies in relation to the environment surrounding them.
Claude Bernard
Masturbation: the primary sexual activity of mankind. In the nineteenth century it was a disease; in the twentieth, it’s a cure.
Thomas Szasz
We men are easily prone to sins of thought. Therefore, He who has formed each heart individually, knowing that the impulse received from the intention constitutes the major element in sin, has ordained that purity in the ruling part of our soul be our primary concern.
Saint Basil
If someone should ask me, ‘What does the soul do?’ I would say, It does two things. It loves. And it creates. Those are its primary acts.
Sue Monk Kidd
The primary purpose of meditation is to become conscious of, and familiar with, our inner life. The ultimate purpose is to reach the source of life and consciousness.
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
The foundation of a good relationship with intentions & goals is keeping in mind that the primary aim of setting and working toward them is to feel the way you want to feel.
Danielle LaPorte
The body is our primary feedback mechanism which can show us what is and isn’t working about our ways of thinking, expressing, and living. As we live our truth more fully and freely, our body grows healthier, stronger, and more beautiful.
Shakti Gawain
The question is the primary form of communication for little kids.
Jim Gaffigan
The kundalini comes in two primary forms when it comes forward from a spiritual teacher.
Frederick Lenz
The primary ideology that operated to create, socialize, and reproduce them was not the ideology of racism. It was that of universalism.
Immanuel Wallerstein
Many people I know who are doing truly helpful and healing ministry find their primary support from a couple of enlightened friends, and only secondarily, if at all, from the larger organizations.
Richard Rohr
Outsourcing is a reflection of a bad economic environment domestically. If you fix that, you fix outsourcing. Our primary export is paper money, and that should change if you change the monetary policy.
Ron Paul
The only real way to develop strategy is to use a process where one goes to ‘primary knowing,’ tapping into source and then listening deeply, moment to moment as the path unfolds—walking the path as it is created.
Joseph Jaworski
My position concerning God is that of an agnostic. I am convinced that a vivid consciousness of the primary importance of moral principles for the betterment and ennoblement of life does not need the idea of a law-giver, especially a law-giver who works on the basis of reward and punishment.
Albert Einstein
I don’t ignore continuity, and try my best to stick as closely to the current status quo as possible, but it’s not my primary concern when I start a story.
Grant Morrison
The Founding Fathers did not believe the primary purpose of their guns was to hunt ducks, but to keep the government in line within the bounds of the Constitution. The Founding Fathers said that armed citizens are a bulwark against a tyrant in the White House.
John Coleman
The primary goal in the education of children is to teach, and to give the example of, a virtuous life.
Saint John Chrysostom
Senator Arlen Specter hasn’t really switched parties; he’s simply realized he cannot win the Pennsylvania Republican primary election
Michael Reagan
I’ve already supported Bernie Sanders in the primaries.
Noam Chomsky
As for the status of Western Christianity, we are in a place where our task is to redefine the primary symbols of our faith or tradition in a more human direction. That’s the thing I spend my time doing.
John Shelby Spong
Every State has the primary duty to protect its own population from grave and sustained violations of human rights, as well as from the consequences of humanitarian crises, whether natural or man-made.
Pope Benedict XVI
If we do take statements to be the primary bearers of truth, there seems to be a very simple answer to the question, what is it for them to be true: for a statement to be true is for things to be as they are stated to be.
J. L. Mackie
I have always held the old-fashioned opinion that the primary object of work of fiction should be to tell a story.
Wilkie Collins
Money has never been my primary goal.
Bryan Cranston
The evils of mankind are caused, not by the primary aggressiveness of individuals, but by their self-transcending identification with groups whose common denominator is low intelligence and high emotionality.
Arthur Koestler
Perhaps the most important reason to be skeptical of government inflation numbers is that the government, like a fox campaigning to guard a hen house, has many reasons to be disingenuous. As the world’s largest debtor, the Federal Government is inflation’s primary beneficiary.
Peter Schiff
I think in those countries, including my own in India, where I think primary education has been badly neglected by successive governments, I blame the opposition as much. Why have they allowed the government to get away with it?
Amartya Sen
The Priestly Code preponderates over the rest of the legislation in force, as well as in bulk; in all matters of primary importance it is the normal and final authority.
Julius Wellhausen
The primary purpose of prayer is not to make requests. The primary purpose is to praise, to sing, to chant. Because the essence of prayer is a song, and man cannot live without a song. Prayer may not save us. But prayer may make us worthy of being saved.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
While combat efficiency is a primary function of Shaolin Kung Fu, a more immediate and useful benefit in our law-abiding society is attaining radiant health and vitality.
Wong Kiew Kit
In more than 20 years I’ve spent studying the issue, I have yet to hear a convincing argument that college football has anything do with what is presumably the primary purpose of higher education: academics.
Buzz Bissinger
Women make up half our workforce and this has an impact at home on spouses and children. This means the workplace must change because women – who have historically been the primary caregivers at home – are now fully in the workforce and here to stay.
Stewart D. Friedman
My primary objective, my desire would be to see the Democrat Party get shellacked in every election, to never see the Democrats ever win one again, as currently constituted.
Rush Limbaugh
The primary goal of spiritual life is human transformation.
John Ortberg
Even if one child falls in a borewell, the entire country gets worried; we must generate more awareness about hundreds of children who are unable to survive due to lack of primary healthcare facilities.
Narendra Modi
Zoocentrism is the primary fallacy of human sociobiology, for this view of human behavior rests on the argument that if the actions of “lower” animals with simple nervous systems arise as genetic products of natural selection, then human behavior should have a similar basis.
Stephen Jay Gould
You look at these primaries so far, do you realize they don’t like [Ted] Cruz either, Ted – Chris [Christie]. In fact, maybe they dislike Cruz more than [Donald] Trump. But Cruz and Trump are the only guys that have won anything. The establishment candidates in this race cannot get noticed.
Rush Limbaugh
What is essential here is the presence of the spirit of dialogue, which is in short, the ability to hold many points of view in suspension, along with a primary interest in the creation of common meaning.
I have long been convinced that families are the primary agents of social change in any society.
Elise M. Boulding
Thought is the organizing factor in man, intersected between the causal primary instincts and the resulting actions.
Albert Einstein
What is the primary purpose of a political leader? To build a majority. If voters care about parking lots, then talk about parking lots.
Newt Gingrich
The nearest we approach God …is as creative beings. The poet, by echoing the primary imagination, recreates. Through his work he forces those who read him to do the same, thus bringing them… nearer to the actual being of God as displayed in action.
R. S. Thomas
Your primary purpose is to be here fully, and to be total in whatever you do so that the preciousness of the present moment does not become reduced to a means to an end. And there you have your life purpose. That’s the very foundation of your life.
Eckhart Tolle
And what is the primary datum? It’s the felt presence of immediate experience. In other words, being here now is the primary datum.
Terence McKenna
A high civilization is a pyramid: it can stand only on a broad base; its primary prerequisite is a strong and soundly consolidated mediocrity.
Friedrich Nietzsche
The primary wisdom is intuition.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The things we fear most in organizations – fluctuations, disturbances,
imbalances – are the primary sources of creativity.
Margaret J. Wheatley
The value of the creative faculty derives from the fact that faculty is the primary mark of man. To deprive man of its exercise is to reduce him to subhumanity.
Eric Gill
In 2008, I was one of the young feminist whippersnappers who voted for Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries – or as many of my older counterparts called me at the time, a traitor.
Jessica Valenti
Government’s the primary source of prosperity for you, if you’re on the left. And if you believe that business exists to kill you, if you believe that business exists to poison you, then government is a source of prosperity for you.
Rush Limbaugh
My primary motivation for writing is to communicate my perceptions and insights into the human condition, in a way that may provide understanding, comfort, and company to others.
Vanna Bonta
Almost half of the population of the world lives in rural regions and mostly in a state of poverty. Such inequalities in human development have been one of the primary reasons for unrest and, in some parts of the world, even violence.
Abdul Kalam
Selfless giving is a choice. The primary choice we make is not what to give, how to give, where to give. What we are trying to do is become perfect givers.
Frederick Lenz
I create enclosed spaces mainly by means of thick concrete walls. The primary reason is to create a place for the individual, a zone for oneself within society. When the external factors of a city’s environment require the wall to be without openings, the interior must be especially full and satisfying.
Tadao Ando
I was always accused of being too stiff. In 1974, when I ran my first primary race for state rep, I was chief aide to the speaker of the House, I knew the issues and understood state government. But what I found out the hard way is that you can know all the ins and outs but people want to know you, your family.
Jim Edgar
The primary Reality is not what I think, but that I live, for those also live who do not think.
Bruce Lee
One of the primary services the arts can render to theology is their integrative power, their ability to interrelate the intellect with the other facets of our human makeup.
Jeremy Begbie
I believe that intelligence and rationality will always be primary no matter what shape sentient creatures take. To not think that would be to doubt the value of life itself.
Peter F. Hamilton
God’s aim in human history is the creation of an inclusive community of loving persons, with himself included as its primary sustainer and most glorious inhabitant.
Dallas Willard
I think one of the primary goals of a feminist landscape architecture would be to work toward a public landscape in which we can roam the streets at midnight, in which every square is available for Virginia Woolf to make up her novels
Rebecca Solnit
What I try to do – and I think this is the former librarian in me – is to get primary source material.
Theresa Breslin
My primary phone is the iPhone. I love the beauty of it. But I wish it did all the things my Android does, I really do.
Steve Wozniak
Music, as long as it exists, will always take its departure from the major triad and return to it. The musician cannot escape it any more than the painter his primary colors or the architect his three dimensions.
Paul Hindemith
Learning. It’s really the primary reason behind everything I do. Programming, entrepreneuring, writing.
Derek Sivers
What I’m talking about is actually is the Mystery of Being as existential fact. That there is something that haunts this world that can take apart and reduce every single one of us to a mixture of terror and ecstasy, fear and trembling. It is not an idea, that’s the primary thing to bear in mind. It’s an experience.
Terence McKenna
I’d love to go back and teach primary school. I used to teach fourth grade and fifth grade. I’d love to spend several years teaching kindergarten or maybe third grade.
Jonathan Kozol
In the past 40 years, the United States lost more than a million farmers and ranchers. Many of our farmers are aging. Today, only nine percent of family farm income comes from farming, and more and more of our farmers are looking elsewhere for their primary source of income.
Tom Vilsack
Emergency rooms will be used the way they were intended to be used: not for primary care, but for when the average freaky American get some strange object up his ass.
Bill Maher
Satan . . . is as dangerous as we allow him to be. His primary weapon is deceit, and he uses it to prevent Christians from exercising the authority that is truly theirs in this world.
Pat Robertson
The Saturnian Spirit, Satan…ensouls the…Primary Ray of Deity.
Vera Stanley Alder
If your users have many questions, it’s a failure of your primary site design. It becomes not so much customer support, as much as customer complaints.
Jakob Nielsen
The primary conflict, I think, is between people whose interests are with already well-established economic activities, and those whose interests are with the emergence of new economic activities.
Jane Jacobs
The New York Times is most definitely a left-wing concern that is openly contemptuous of the conservative, traditional point of view. That is the primary reason the paper may soon dissolve.
Bill O’Reilly
A living creature develops a destructive impulse when it wants to destroy a source of danger… The original motive is not pleasure in destruction… I destroy in a dangerous situation because I want to live and do not want to have any anxiety. In short, the impulse to destroy serves a primary biological will to live.
Wilhelm Reich
The proclamation of the Gospel remains the primary service that the Church owes to humanity, to offer the salvation of Christ to the man of our time, who is in many ways humiliated and oppressed, and to orientate in a Christian way cultural, social, and ethical transformations that are unfolding in the world.
Pope Benedict XVI
Thus God alone is the primary Unity, or original simple substance, from which all monads, created and derived, are produced.
Gottfried Leibniz
A national primary election would electrify the people and give them a larger stake in the outcome.
Leopoldo Lopez
Word-of-mouth marketing is a crucial component of organic growth for startups and one of the primary ways that Weebly has grown to over 15 million customers.
David Rusenko
Whenever you become anxious or stressed, outer purpose has taken over, and you lost sight of your inner purpose. You have forgotten that your state of consciousness is primary, all else secondary.
Eckhart Tolle
One of the primary necessities of the world for the maintenance of peace is the elimination of the frictions which arise from competitive armament.
Herbert Hoover
I’ve been using Vista on my home laptop since it shipped, and can say with some conviction that nobody should be using it as their primary operating system – it simply has no redeeming merits to overcome the compatibility headaches it causes.
Joel Spolsky
I consider myself to have been the bridge between the shotgun and the binoculars in bird watching. Before I came along, the primary way to observe birds was to shoot them and stuff them.
Roger Tory Peterson
Republican primary voters, whether they’re close primaries or open, are voting for anybody but candidates attached to the Republican establishment.
Rush Limbaugh
The primary source of the appeal of Christianity was Jesus – His incarnation, His life, His crucifixion, and His resurrection.
Kenneth Scott Latourette
We should not lay all past mistakes on Chairman Mao. So we must be very objective in assessing him. His contributions were primary, his mistakes secondary. In China, we will inherit the many good things in Chairman Mao’s thinking while at the same time explaining clearly the mistakes he made.
Deng Xiaoping
We must see that we are afraid of the thing we most desire,
and so we live a mediocre life,
never bringing to consummation
the primary impulse of our heart.
David Deida
The primary reason in starting a business part-time is not so much to make a product great. The real reason for starting a part-time business is to make you a great businessperson.
Robert Kiyosaki
During the primary, I heard the audible voice of God. … He said, ‘Credibility.’ It wasn’t a thought in my head. I thought it meant I was going to win. But after the primary, I got credibility.
Christine O’Donnell
Everything I’ve ever gotten in life is largely due to the fact that I was born in this country, America, at this time with these opportunities for its citizens. It is the primary obligation of our generation to turn over a similar America to our kids.
Thomas Friedman
Our object is the economic freedom of the producing classes; this ultimate goal will be attained after a long and bitter struggle; therefore, our primary task is to organize the masses and lead them in the struggle for economic freedom.
M. N. Roy
That’s a wonderful thing, because one of the primary qualities of a good performance is honesty.
Roberta Flack
I’ve always wanted to own and control the primary technology in everything we do.
Steve Jobs
A primary object should be the education of our youth in the science of government. In a republic, what species of knowledge can be equally important? And what duty more pressing than communicating it to those who are to be the future guardians of the liberties of the country?
George Washington
Very few people are conscious of the deeper strata of eternity. The primary reason is either because they lack purity or they lack motivation.
Frederick Lenz
The only thing I shall talk about is my sporting achievements at school. My primary sporting achievement at school was that I dodged games for two complete years and was well through the third year before they discovered that I had completely avoided all games.
John Hume
The most formidable of all the ills that threaten the future of the Union arises from the presence of a black population upon its territory; and in contemplating the cause of the present embarrassments, or the future dangers of the United States, the observer is invariably led to this as a primary fact.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Headship is the divine calling of a husband to take primary responsibility for Christlike, servant leadership, protection, and provision in the home.
John Piper
Secondly, as a result of this political favoritism, the FDA has become a primary factor in that formula whereby cartel-oriented companies in the food and drug industry are able to use the police powers of government to harass or destroy their free-market competitors.
G. Edward Griffin
The other reason might be that you want to talk to voters when you’ve got seven primaries in seven days. Understand what’s happened in this race – where we campaign actively in a state, and voters have the chance to see me directly, they check under the hood, and they kick the tires, when we don’t have as much time.
Barack Obama
Since the primary motive of the evil is disguise, one of the places evil people are most likely to be found is within the church. What better way to conceal one’s evil from oneself as well as from others than to be a deacon or some other highly visible form of Christian within our culture
M. Scott Peck
Very few people really see things unless they’ve had someone in early life who made them look at things. And name them too. But the looking is primary, the focus.
Denise Levertov
So the first reason for studying Scripture is that it is a means of spiritual growth. There is none apart from the Word. It is God’s primary tool to develop you as an individual.
Howard G. Hendricks
And in her [Eleanor Roosevelt] letters, she writes the most, you know, fanciful letters: when we are together, and when we are reunited, and you know, I will be your surrogate wife. Of course she doesn’t use that word, but I will be the mother to my brothers, and I will be your primary love.
Blanche Wiesen Cook
What do warriors do? They are in competition with everyone else. They measure their success and their value on the basis of who they are better than, how much they get, and so on. So, this is the time in your adult life when your primary emphasis is on goal setting, on getting someplace else, and on defeating other people.
Wayne Dyer
We [me and my husban] like to honor both of our family traditions whenever possible . We show the girls lots of pictures and tell a lot of stories about both of our childhoods. We also try to teach them both Portuguese and Serbian, though English is their primary language.
Adriana Lima
The most important and urgent problems of the technology of today are no longer the satisfactions of the primary needs or of archetypal wishes, but the reparation of the evils and damages by technology of yesterday.
Dennis Gabor
There have been a lot of murders and suicides in my family; it’s like the primary cause of death. I wonder if there’s a certain energy that attracts that.
Rose McGowan
I think in 2012 one of the primary issues that will get a lot of discussion will be comprehensive tax reform.
Tom Reed
Scientists now believe that the primary biological function of breasts is to make males stupid.
Dave Barry
The idea that vaccines are a primary cause of autism is not as crackpot as some might wish. Autism’s 60-fold rise in 30 years matches a tripling of the US vaccine schedule.
Jenny McCarthy
Civilized society is perpetually menaced with disintegration through this primary hostility of men towards one another.
Sigmund Freud
I definitely wanted to earn my freedom. But the primary motivation wasn’t making money, but making an impact.
Sean Parker
Deterrence itself is not a preeminent value; the primary values are safety and morality.
Herman Kahn
If you are not bored by life, and your primary motto is enthusiasm and if you like your friends, family around you, it all translates into your designs. That’s what keeps the creativity alive.
Christian Louboutin
Today, I use Linux as my primary OS (on an x86 PC, and on a Thinkpad), and I also use Irix (on an SGI O2). Linux has improved a great deal since I wrote this, specifically with respect to its ease of installation.
Jamie Zawinski
We got the clearest picture of Donald Trump`s weaknesses and liabilities in a general election. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz finally gave up on trying to convince Republican primary voters that Trump is not a real conservative, attacks that have failed to resonate.
Chris Hayes
A primary campaign can get very intense and times nasty. But it`s never going to be quite as vicious as between-parties rivalry.
Ruth Marcus
Do you know the primary difference between men and gods? … Gods don’t think they can become men
Dennis Lehane
I don’t know that I’m in a position to give campaign advice to Donald Trump, given that he just whipped me in a primary.
Ted Cruz
Sometimes their oppression of emotion and the weird way it comes out is more interesting than painting it in bold primary colors.
Edward Norton
I had vainly been seeking a description of consciousness within science; instead, what I and others have to look for is a description of science within consciousness. We must develop a science compatible with consciousness, our primary experience.
Amit Goswami
The primary factor in a successful attack is speed.
Lord Mountbatten
Throughout history, politicians have used other people’s property to buy themselves power. That is the primary achievement of the welfare state.
James Bovard
In brief, we have the new paradigm where simulation and programs have replaced theory and observation, where government largely determines the nature of scientific activity, and where the primary role of professional societies is the lobbying of the government for special advantage.
Richard Lindzen
The primary aim of yoga is to restore the mind to simplicity, peace, and poise, to free it from confusion and distress.
B.K.S. Iyengar
I think Super Tuesday is the most important day of this entire primary election. It is the most delegates awarded in a single night will be awarded on Super Tuesday.
Ted Cruz
Your primary purpose is to enable consciousness to flow into what you do. The secondary purpose is whatever you want to achieve through the doing.
Eckhart Tolle
Despite the fact that the country was electing Republicans, Obama wasn’t being stopped, and it’s because of the political system. The political system has evolved into a giant bureaucracy, the primary purpose of which is self-preservation, not fixing anything.
Rush Limbaugh
It’s interesting to see how acoustic guitars are emerging as a primary instrument once again … reminds me very much of what Jim Messina and I were doing back then. You can’t get too far away from an acoustic guitar
Kenny Loggins
The government transfers income and wealth according to the rules of politics, which make politicians the primary beneficiaries of the system, and the poor and needy the primary victims.
Hans F. Sennholz
My ideas about time all developed from the realization that if nothing were to change we could not say that time passes. Change is primary, time, if it exists at all, is something we deduce from it.
Julian Barbour
The science is crystal clear: we humans are the primary cause of global warming, and we face a bleak future if we fail to act quickly.
Joseph J. Romm
He and she become selective at different points; she can be selective when he wants his primary fantasy – sex; he can be selective when she wants her primary fantasy – commitment.
Warren Farrell
The world belongs to who doesn’t feel. The primary condition to be a practical man is the absence of sensitivity.
Fernando Pessoa
It is an author’s primary duty to entertain. Sling out all the philosophical terms, but keep the reader turning the page.
Susan Howatch
One of the primary goals in life … should be to prepare for death. Everything else should be secondary.
Billy Graham
My palette contains a warm and cool of each primary, plus four modifiers: Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna, Blue-Violet and Phthalo Yellow-Green just mix as I go for each painting.
Matt Smith
Today the primary threat to the liberties of the American people comes not from communism, foreign tyrants or dictators. It comes from the tendency on our own shores to centralize power, to trust bureaucracies rather than people.
George Allen
The most important feature of the Chess position is the activity of the pieces. This is absolutely fundamental in all phases of the game: Opening, Middlegame and especially Endgame. The primary constraint on a piece’s activity is the Pawn structure
Michael Stean
Christ remains primary in your life only when he enjoys the first place in your mind and heart. Thus you must continuously unite yourself to him in prayer…. Without prayer there can be no joy, no hope, no peace. For prayer is what keeps us in touch with Christ.
Pope John Paul II
Based on the number that they found, The New York Times reported that Hillary [Clinton] had basically clinched the primary ’cause you added the superdelegates to the number of delegates you’d already gotten. But this was on the eve of the California and New Jersey primary.
Terry Gross
I think we recognize as Americans there are certain things that are just primary to the freedoms and liberties that we enjoy here and religious freedom is one of the most important things we as Americans cherish.
Ann Romney
Man is by definition the first and primary weed. Weeds are not the other. Weeds are us.
Michael Pollan
My primary school teacher once poured a bottle of curdled school milk forcefully down my throat. Then I threw it up all over her suede shoes. I’d rather have drunk from the spittoon in Barney’s barber shop.
Paul O’Grady
What makes photography a strange invention is that its primary raw materials are light and time.
John Berger
The President of the United States ordered me to break through the Japanese lines and proceed from Corregidor to Australia for the purpose, as I understand it, of organizing the American offensive against Japan, a primary objective of which is the relief of the Philippines. I came through and I shall return.
Douglas MacArthur
You must give soldiers reasons to have confidence and pride in themselves, in their leaders, and in their units. Only then will you have loyalty. Loyalty was the primary trait I looked for in soldiers.
George W. Dunaway
Madonna remains the most visible performer on the planet, as well as one of the wealthiest, but would anyone seriously say that artistic self-development is her primary motivating principle? She is too busy with Kabbalah, fashion merchandising, adoption melodramas, the gym, and ill-starred horseback riding to study art.
Camille Paglia
To Thales the primary question was not what do we know, but how do we know it.
If all opposition were curtailed, if all maladies were removed, then the primary purposes of the Father’s plan would be frustrated.
David A. Bednar
A life of kindness is the primary meaning of divine worship.
Emanuel Swedenborg
But the primary reason for wanting the dollar to become more competitive in the near future is that we may need an increase in exports this year and in 2007 to sustain the economy’s current pace of expansion.
Martin Feldstein
Creating a world that is truly fit for children does not imply simply the absence of war… It means having primary schools nearby that educate children, free of charge… It means building a world fit for children, where every child can grow to adulthood in health, peace and dignity.
Carol Bellamy
We negotiated with the Honduran government the establishment of a regional military training center, for training central American forces, but the primary motivation for doing that was to be able to bolster the quality, improve the quality of the El Salvadoran fighting forces.
John Negroponte
The primary function of government is to protect the minority of the opulent from the majority of the poor.
James Madison
Just practice good, do good for others, without thinking of making yourself known so that you may gain reward. Really bring benefit to others, gaining nothing for yourself. This is the primary requisite for breaking free of attachments to the Self.
I entered politics out of a desire to serve, but I have always really wanted to achieve things in the private sector as well. As a father and a husband, that is my primary obligation, and that will always continue, whether I am in the Senate or out of the Senate.
Marco Rubio
There are two primary forces in this world, fear and faith. Fear can move you to destructiveness or sickness or failure. Only in rare instances will it motivate you to accomplishment. But faith is a greater force. Faith can drive itself into your consciousness and set you free from fear forever.
Norman Vincent Peale
A colored man is precisely as much entitled to submit his candidacy in a party primary, as is any other citizen. The decision must be made by the constituents to whom he offers himself, and by nobody else.
Calvin Coolidge
You need not see what someone is doing to know if it is his vocation, you have only to watch his eyes: a cook mixing a sauce, a surgeon making a primary incision, a clerk completing a bill of lading wear the same rapt expression, forgetting themselves in a function. How beautiful it is, that eye-on-the-obje ct look.
W. H. Auden
I first started acting in primary school, just doing little plays. And from the moment I began, something just went ‘click’ inside me. Suddenly I wasn’t shy anymore. Instead I felt confident and happy. I can remember the enormous sense of relief it gave me. I loved the feeling of making people laugh.
Sally Hawkins
I campaigned for Hillary Clinton when she was in the primaries against [Barack] Obama, actually.
Natalie Portman
[Muhammad] Ali had [Jo] Frazier , that man had the joker, Coke had Pepsi and [Donald] Trump had [Barack] Obama, or 16 primary opponents or the entire political establishment.
Chuck Todd
Town meetings are to liberty what primary schools are to science; they bring it within the people’s reach.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Globalization combined with technology, combined with social media and constant information, have disrupted people’s lives sometimes in very concrete ways; a manufacturing plant closes and suddenly an entire town no longer has what was the primary source of employment.
Barack Obama
I think a lot of times it’s not money that’s the primary motivation factor; it’s the passion for your job and the professional and personal satisfaction that you get out of doing what you do that motivates you.
Martin Yan
We must reject the idea… Well-intentioned, but dead wrong… That the primary path to greatness in the social sectors is to become “more like a business.” Most businesses… Like most of anything else in life… Fall somewhere between mediocre and good.
James C. Collins
In Illinois, community, migrant, homeless and public housing health centers operate 268 primary care sites and serve close to 1 million patients every year.
Jan Schakowsky
Self-improvement is the name of the game, and your primary objective is to strengthen yourself, not to destroy an opponent.
Maxwell Maltz
If one had to single out the most revolutionary novelty furnished by Qumran, its contribution to our understanding of the genesis of Jewish literary compositions could justifiably be our primary choice.
Geza Vermes
The Michigan Republican primary apparently is tighter than Willie Nelson’s headband.
Dan Rather
Marketing has supplanted story as the primary force behind the worthiness of making a film, and that’s a very sad thing. It’s film only as a function of consumerism rather than as an important component of our culture, and that’s everywhere around the world.
Alexander Payne
Throughout the history of the United States , war has been the primary impetus behind the growth and development of the central state. It has been the lever by which presidents and other national officials have bolstered the power of the state in the face of tenacious popular resistance.
Bruce D. Porter
The primary and most beautiful of Nature’s qualities is motion, which agitates her at all times, but this motion is simply a perpetual consequence of crimes, she conserves it by means of crimes only.
Marquis de Sade
I think the primary message to the world is that the United States is going to remain the strongest military power in the world.
Leon Panetta
In fact, street gangs are the primary distributor of illegal drugs in the United States.
Dave Reichert
I was really exposed to great old-time literature – the classics, the poetic realists like Strindberg and Ibsen and all those guys. I was really inspired by all those guys. That’s when writing became a primary focus.
Kurt Sutter
It was just revealed that Donald Trump hasn’t voted in primary elections in over 20 years. Or in simpler terms, Trump hasn’t voted in primary elections in over three wives.
Jimmy Fallon
What parents said they valued most were discussions with teachers and heads, and what they wanted was more descriptive information in their children’s school reports. This is particularly true for primary schools. Parents wanted to know much more than just how their children were doing academically.
Carol J. Adams
Knowing how to deal with change effectively is a primary requirement for living successfully in perhaps the most exciting time in all of human history
Brian Tracy
Her primary reason for living and my primary reason for living were awfully entangled.
John Green
In all primary school work the principle of multiple impressions is well recognized.
William James
What’s the number-one thing people do on the Web? They read. Words and numbers are the raw material from which the vast majority of webpages are built. If reading is the primary activity on the Web, then readability is a primary function of Web design.
Gerry McGovern
Order is the primary regulation of the celestial regions.
John Godfrey Saxe
The primary notion i hold to be the Living Power.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
I think our nation’s at war with radical Islam. The primary goal of these groups is to attack our nation. Washington’s a prime target.
Lindsey Graham
A primary function of art and thought is to liberate the individual from the tyranny of his culture in the environmental sense and to permit him to stand beyond it in an autonomy of perception and judgment.
Beverly Sills
Am I surprised that Joe Klein [pseudonymous author of Primary Colors which he denied writing] lied? No, because in my opinion reporters lie all the time.
James Carville
Mitt Romney’s primary season embrace of the social and economic agenda of the more rabid elements of his party doomed him, especially the shrill immigration rhetoric and the harshly insensitive theory that no additional sacrifice or contribution should be sought from those at the top.
Eliot Spitzer
Secretary of state, now they’re saying it’s between Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani, which has a lot of our viewers saying, how could Mitt Romney even be in the running given how loyal Rudy Giuliani was to Mr. Trump. And even if you might like Mitt Romney, he was not loyal and in fact he savaged Trump during the primary.
Megyn Kelly
While new rights are attributed to or indeed almost presumed by the individual, life is not always protected as the primary value and the primordial right of every human being. The ultimate aim of medicine remains the defence and promotion of life.
Pope Francis
But we all recognise the primary foible of frail humanity – our propensity for embracing hope and shunning logic, our tendency to believe what we desire rather than what we observe.
Stephen Jay Gould
The sense of smell in all dogs is their primary doorway to the world around them.
Robert Crais
Walking is the great adventure, the first meditation, a practice of heartiness and soul primary to humankind. Walking is the exact balance beween spirit and humility.
Gary Snyder
Primary revelation came through Jesus Christ, and I find it distasteful that additional divine finger prints should appear in nature.
George Murphy
As an empowerment right, education is the primary vehicle by which economically and socially marginalised adults and children can lift themselves out of poverty, and obtain the means to participate fully in their communities.
Koichiro Matsuura
Well, we had a bunch of primaries and caucuses on the Democratic side. Bernie Sanders won the Nebraska and Kansas caucuses. That keeps his campaign alive. But Hillary Clinton won Louisiana, which was the big prize of the night, so she ended up winning more delegates than he did yesterday.
Mara Liasson
Ultimately what you do is secondary. But how you do it is primary.
Eckhart Tolle
If people are really excited about their music, and that’s their primary motivation, then that comes through in demo tapes. That’s the most important ingredient.
Greg Ginn
The leading edge of reality is mind, and mind is the primary substratum of being.
Terence McKenna
The primary message of the Christian Church is that we were born in sin and we need to be rescued; we cannot rescue ourselves, so God comes to our rescue, pays the price of our sin and transforms us through the death of Jesus.
John Shelby Spong
Because women live creatively, they rarely experience the need to depict or write about that which to them is a primary experience and which men know only at a second remove. Women create naturally, men create artificially.
Ashley Montagu
The primary virtue is: hold your tongue; who knows how to keep quiet is close to God.
Cato the Younger
You can care very much about someone without being capable of becoming their primary caregiver in the event of their parents’ untimely death.
Mallory Ortberg
In the US, the problem is primary and secondary education. We’ve had such an increase in inequality because a quarter of American kids don’t finish high school!
Milton Friedman
Survival is my primary instinct…it’s out of my control. It’s stronger than me. It’s an outside force, a voice that says ‘do this for your life or it will devour you.’
Grace Jones
A primary goal of the spiritual life is to learn to quiet the mind through prayer and meditation, through spiritual practice, so that we can hear what in both Judaism and Christianity, is called the small, still voice within.
Marianne Williamson
The primary driver of final consumer demand is, of course, the level of disposable income.
Peter Dicken
I always use primary sources, in addition to reading biographies and other materials.
Nancy Horan
A primary purpose for setting goals is to get you moving in the right direction. When you set goals, you have to keep them always in mind.
Stedman Graham
In primary school, I was bored witless by Australian history.
Catherine Jinks
In my art, I deconstruct and then I reconstruct, so visual perception is one of my primary interests.
Chuck Close
The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but thought about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking. Separate them from the situation, which is always neutral. It is as it is.
Eckhart Tolle
Failing to remember is the primary reason for most performers’ poor practising habits.
Howard Snell
The primary declaration of Christianity is not “This do!” but “This happened!
Evelyn Underhill
Very few people can write in a crowd. This is a very solitary occupation. I have known people more talented than me who never made it. And the primary reason was always that they couldn’t stand to be alone for several hours a day. Any writer worth anything has mastered the art. The art of solitude.
Tom Robbins
I thought, well, why am I giving up on my primary dream to work doubly hard, to do something as an alternative to what it really still want to?
Benedict Cumberbatch
A Christianity that does not have as its primary focus the deepening of passions for God is a false Christianity, no matter how zealously it seeks conversions or how forcefully it advocates righteous behavior.
J. D. Greear
Is it any wonder somebody like Donald Trump is racing through the presidential primary process?
Rush Limbaugh
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
Denis Waitley
My mother’s studies stopped with the third year of primary school, my father with the first. They taught me a deep sense of duty. But nobody was involved in politics in my family.
Emma Bonino
I say this as a young dad seeing children going into primary school: I don’t think we should underestimate the formative effect on a child of those first years in primary school.
Nick Clegg
It’s essential for us to develop an imagination that is participatory. Art is the primary way in which this happens. It’s the primary way in which we become what we see or hear.
Eugene H. Peterson
The primary battle which religion must fight today is the battle to justify its own existence.
Georgia Harkness
Though our conduct seems so very different from that of the higher animals, the primary instincts are much alike in them and in us.
Albert Einstein
Having women in office is vital to the health of our democracy because women play a unique role in our society. By and large, women are still the primary caregivers in families, even as we have taken our place in the workforce.
Ellen Malcolm
In a justly organized community, however, government exists to secure the right to life and the other human rights that follow from that primary right.
Paul Ryan
The only constitutional exception to the power of making treaties is, that it shall not change the Constitution.… On natural principles, a treaty, which should manifestly betray or sacrifice primary interests of the state, would be null.
Alexander Hamilton
The primary danger of the television screen lies not so much in the behavior it produces as the behavior it prevents-the talks, the games, the family activities and the arguments through which much of the child’s learning takes place and his character is formed.
Urie Bronfenbrenner
You think that enlightenment is something other than what is happening right now. This is your primary mistake.
A can-do attitude, a positive personality, and a strong work ethic are still the primary ingredients for success at Nordstrom.
Robert Spector
To have a group of cloistered clinicians away completely from the broad current of professional life would be bad for teacher and worse for student. The primary work of a professor of medicine in a medical school is in the wards, teaching his pupils how to deal with patients and their diseases.
William Osler
Chaka Fattah already lost the seat in a Democratic primary. So, he’s on his way out. And he formally resigned this week.
Christopher Michael Cillizza
Love is above the laws, above the opinion of men; it is the truth, the flame, the pure element, the primary idea of the moral world.
Madame de Stael
Last night was Super Tuesday – a 10-state GOP Primary orgy. A big, sweaty pile of lever-yankin Republican voters. And like most orgies, it involves a bunch of middle aged guys who are not appealing to women.
Stephen Colbert
Preaching the Word is the primary task of the Church, the primary task of the leaders of the Church, the people who are set in this position of authority; and we must not allow anything to deflect us from this, however good the cause, however great the need.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones
The American myth is of free will in its simple, primary sense. One can choose oneself and will oneself; and this absurdly optimistic assumption so dominates the republic that it has bred all its gross social injustices.
John Fowles
The thing that cannot be defined is the first thing; the primary fact.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Women have always been the primary victims of war. Women lose their husbands, their fathers, their sons in combat.
Hillary Clinton
During the presidential primaries of 1940, I received a request from the Democratic National Committee to sing God Bless America before the speeches.
Kate Smith
The bond between a parent and child is the primary bond, the foundation for the rest of the child’s life. The presence or absence of this bond determines much about the child’s resiliency and what kind of adult they will grow up to be.
Jane Fonda
The first great and primary business to which I ought to attend every day is to have my soul happy in the Lord.
George Muller
Only bad things happen quickly, . . . Virtually all the happiness-produ cing processes in our lives take time, usually a long time: learning new things, changing old behaviors, building satisfying relationships, raising children. This is why patience and determination are among life’s primary virtues.
Gordon Livingston
I have never felt that the primary use of these things was to cure what is called in modern parlance neurosis, what I call unhappiness. It isn’t for that.
Terence McKenna
The number one way a man can succeed in fulfilling a woman’s primary love needs is through communication. By learning to listen to a woman’s feelings, a man can effectively shower a woman with caring, understanding, respect, devotion, validation, and reassurance.
John Gray
My primary instinct as an actor is not the big transformation. It’s thrilling if a performer can do that well, but that’s not me. Often with actors, it’s a case of witnessing a big party piece but wondering afterwards, where’s the substance?
Colin Firth
When I was younger and in primary school, I’d do maybe a film a year, and I had to adapt to being away from everyone for a couple of months.
Saoirse Ronan
A corporation’s primary goal is to make money. Government’s primary role is to take a big chunk of that money and give it to others.
Larry Ellison
All human professions, institutions, and activities must be integral with the earth as the primary self-nourishing , self-governing and self-fulfilling community. To integrate our human activities within this context is our way into the future.
Thomas Berry
If you look at the single-payer systems, like Scandinavia, Canada, and elsewhere, they can get costs down because, you know, although their care, according to statistics, overall is as good or better on primary care, in particular, they do impose things like waiting times, you know.
Hillary Clinton
The US is a business-run huckster society, and its primary value is deceit.
Noam Chomsky
If welfare and equality are to be primary aims of law, some people must necessarily possess a greater power of coercion in order to force redistribution of material goods. Political power alone should be equal among human beings; yet striving for other kinds of equality absolutely requires political inequality.
Tibor R. Machan
Whenever you meet anybody, it is a holy encounter. The primary event is the energy field of presence between you and the other human being that arises. You enjoy it. There is deep joy in the meeting.
Eckhart Tolle
[Self-defense is] justly called the primary law of nature, so it is not, neither can it be in fact, taken away by the laws of society.
William Blackstone
The primary cause of unhappiness in the world today is… lack of faith.
Carl Jung
Preventing people from illegally immigrating to the United States should be the primary purpose of Customs and Border Protection.
Ted Cruz
The primary means of energy generation is going to solar. It will at least be a plurality, and probably be a slight majority in the long term.
Elon Musk
The primary use of conversation is to satisfy the impulse to talk.
George Santayana
Your primary tools, as an actor, are observation and imagination. You can pretty much get everything you need from that, and you do. It brings back that element of pretend.
Stephen Lang
We all agree that parents have the primary responsibility of filtering the material that reaches children. However, children are often lured onto websites containing obscene material through the devious manipulation of search engines.
Robert A. Brady
We usually focus on what we’re doing or where we’re going, but God’s primary concern is who we’re becoming in the process.
Mark Batterson
What I am fighting is the idea that charity is a moral duty and a primary virtue.
Ayn Rand
Winning Democratic primaries is not a qualification or a sign of who can win the general election. If it were, every nominee would win because every nominee wins Democratic primaries.
Mark Penn
The primary reason people seek job security is because that is what they are taught to seek, at home and at school..then with debt loads, they must cling even tighter to a job, or professional security, just to pay the bills.
Robert Kiyosaki
Everything was curved to fit the walls: the stove, the sink and the cupboards, and all of it had been painted with flowers, insects and birds in bright primary colours.
J. K. Rowling
Small businesses have told us that having cash in their pocket is one of the primary things that they need.
Karen Mills
Yet I am not more sure that my soul lives, than I am that perverseness is one of the primitive impulses of the human heartone of the indivisible primary faculties, or sentiments, which give direction to the character of Man.
Edgar Allan Poe
Donald Trump himself has an idiosyncratic speaking style that relies on simple words and phrases, which worked for him in the primaries but may be coming up short for him now.
Ben Zimmer
The last time I threw a punch was in primary school, and that was probably a slap.
Martin Compston
In the desert, the two primary elements are stone and water. Stone comes in abundance, exposed by weathering and a lack of vegetation. It is a canvas. Water crosses this stone with such rarity and ferocity that it tells all of its secrets in the shapes left behind.
Craig Childs
[Donald Trump] said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe program, “My primary consultant is myself.” While this may make consensus easy, the range of perspective is dangerously narrow.
David Krieger
Your mind-set is your primary weapon
Jeff Cooper
The main reason for insisting on the universal Flood as a fact of history and as the primary vehicle for geological interpretation is that God’s Word plainly teaches it! No geologic difficulties, real or imagined, can be allowed to take precedence over the clear statements and necessary inferences of Scripture.
Henry M. Morris
Processionalism is primary – how you get from one place to another, the relationships and effects of spaces as you move about in them. That’s worked out awfully well in the State Theater. I’m a ‘straight-in’ man myself; I’m too nervous, I like to know where I am. I also like to know where I’m going.
Philip Johnson
Since 1787 the principle of freedom of religion has been attacked but never overthrown. Keeping education in the United States free of sectarian influence has long been one of the primary struggles of believers in freedom of religion.
Joseph Leon Blau
The primary purpose of a home is to reflect and to distribute the love of Christ. Anything that usurps that is idolatrous.
Ravi Zacharias
The insanity rate per capita in South Africa is appalling. …it is easily seen that a primary requisite in any programme of the rehabilitation of the Bantu in South Africa would be mental health.
L. Ron Hubbard
Building a mission and building a business go hand-in-hand. It is true that the primary thing that makes me excited about what we’re doing is the mission, but I also think, from the very beginning, we’ve had this healthy understanding which is that we need to do both.
Mark Zuckerberg
For the primary and secondary school years, we will aid public schools serving low-income families and assist students in both public and private schools.
Lyndon B. Johnson
I was a dreamer when I was at high school and even primary school. I used to dream about doing adventurous things.
Edmund Hillary
We’ll support the government on issues if it’s essential to the country but our primary responsibility is not to prop up the government, our responsibility is to provide an opposition and an alternative government for Parliament and for Canadians.
Stephen Harper
Design a clear and simple interface. The primary task of the interface is to present the player with a choice of the available actions at each moment and to provide instant feedback when the player makes a choice.
Jordan Mechner
The primary reason people watch television is you want to see the world through somebody else’s eyes, and learn what that’s like. You can only live one life, and so you get to see other lives through these characters.
Frank Spotnitz
The primary object of meditation is to not become overly attached to any particular thoughts that may come into to the mind. It is most important to let the mind “flow,” with less mental worry about, and attachment to, the various thoughts that may come into the mind.

Jeb Bush was supposed to be the establishment candidate, but he didn’t catch on. And the extraordinary thing about this Republican primary is that the establishment, moderate wing of the party has sidelined itself. They’re not coalescing around one candidate as they have in the past.

In the primary debates for the 2016 election, every single Republican candidate was a climate change denier, with one exception, John Kasich – the “rational moderate” – who said it may be happening but we shouldn’t do anything about it. For a long time, the media have downplayed the issue.

The primary thing that any technology startup must do is build a product that’s at least 10 times better at doing something than the current prevailing way of doing that thing.
