If you hear advice from a grandmother or elders, odds are that it works 90 percent of the time. On the other hand [...] if you read anything by psychologists and behavioral scientists, odds are that it works at less than 10 percent, unless it is has also been covered by the grandmother and the classics, in which case why would you need a psychologist?

Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.

Marcus Aurelius

Awards are like applause, and every actor likes to hear applause.

Ralph Fiennes

We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creatures through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren; they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth.

Henry Beston

I`ve got seven kids. The three words you hear most around my house are `hello,` `goodbye,` and `I`m pregnant`.

Dean Martin

Smart is when you believe half of what you hear. Brilliant is when you know which half.

Robert Orben

The best lie goes to you (goes to you)
For making me believe (that you)
That you could be faithful to me
Let`s hear your speech.

Rihanna

Don`t blindly believe what I say. Don`t believe me because others convince you of my words. Don`t believe anything you see, read, or hear from others, whether of authority, religious teachers or texts. Don`t rely on logic alone, nor speculation. Don`t infer or be deceived by appearances. Do not give up your authority and follow blindly the will of others. This way will lead to only delusion. Discover for yourself what is truth, what is real.

Buddha

If you show somebody a piece of your work and you ask them ‘What do you think? ’, they will probably say it’s okay because they don’t want to offend you. Next time, instead of asking if it’s right, ask them what’s wrong. They may not say what you want to hear, but the chances are they will give you a truthful criticism. Truth hurts, but in the long run it’s better than a pat on the back.

Paul Arden

Burying your breath in the still season,
You, who waited for help, dissolved into nothingness.
I can`t make my raised voice retreat so you can`t hear it anymore...
I`ve come to realize that it is my sin.

The Gazette

The stories we hear in childhood are the ones we remember all our lives.

Stephen King

In science it often happens that scientists say, "You know that`s a really good argument; my position is mistaken", and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn`t happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.

Carl Sagan

We philosophers are mistake specialists. (I know, it sounds like a bad joke, but hear me out.) While other disciplines specialize in getting the right answers to their defining questions, we philosophers specialize in all the ways there are of getting things so mixed up, so deeply wrong, that nobody is even sure what the right questions are, let alone the answers. Asking the wrongs questions risks setting any inquiry off on the wrong foot. Whenever that happens, this is a job for philosophers! Philosophy - in every field of inquiry - is what you have to do until you figure out what questions you should have been asking in the first place.

Daniel Dennett

Ever hear the saying, Life goes on? It does. Long past the point when everyone else thinks it stopped.

Alyson Noel

People who eavesdrop seldom hear good about themselves, right? An old adage, and a true one.

Charlaine Harris
