Seems - Quotes


If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is a compromise.

Robert Fritz

Mathematical analysis [...] seems to be a faculty of the human mind destined to supplement the shortness of life and the imperfection of the senses.

Joseph Fourier

You ever have a thing with someone that never seems to really be over, even when it is? Rumi says, "Lovers never meet. They`re in each other all along."

Orange Is the New Black (movie)

Our fear of death seems to me to be an error of evolution. Many animals react instinctively with terror and flight at the approach of a predator. It is a healthy reaction, one that allows them to escape from danger. But it`s a terror that lasts an instant, not something that remains with them constantly. Natural selection has produced these big apes with hypertrophic frontal lobes, with an exaggerated ability to predict the future. It`s a prerogative that`s certainly useful but one that has placed before us a vision of our inevitable death, and this triggers the instinct of terror and flight. Basically, I believe that the fear of death is the result of an accidental and clumsy interference between two distinct evolutionary pressures - the product of bad automatic connections in our brain rather than something that has any use or meaning.

Carlo Rovelli

Reality is often very different from what it seems. The Earth appears to be flat but is in fact spherical. The sun seems to revolve in the sky when it is really we who are spinning.

Carlo Rovelli

That which seems intuitive to us now is the result of scientific and philosophical elaborations in the past.

Carlo Rovelli

Debunking bad science should be constant obligation of the science community, even if it takes time away from serious research or seems to be a losing battle.

Martin Gardner

The more the universe seems comprehensible, the more it also seems pointless.

Steven Weinberg

If determinism is true, the future is set - and this includes all our future states of mind and our subsequent behavior. And to the extent that the law of cause and effect is subject to indeterminism - quantum or otherwise - we can take no credit for what happens. There is no combination of these truths that seems compatible with the popular notion of free will.

Sam Harris

When you reach a certain age you have, it seems to me, a right to expect some parts of your life to stay stable. Like what, for instance? Like money, for instance.

Frederick Pohl

It always seems impossible until its done.

Nelson Mandela

Although time seems to fly by, it never travels faster than one day at a time. Each day is a new opportunity to live your life to the fullest.

Steve Maraboli

It says here the retail industry does 50% of its business between December 1st and December 25th. That's half a year's business in one month's time. It seems to me, an intelligent country would legislate a second such gift giving holiday. Create, say, a Christmas 2, late May, early June, to further stimulate growth.

Reindeer Games (movie)

It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends.

Love Actually (movie)

Tell a devout Christian that his wife is cheating on him, or that frozen yogurt can make a man invisible, and he is likely to require as much evidence as anyone else, and to be persuaded only to the extent that you give it. Tell him that the book he keeps by his bed was written by an invisible deity who will punish him with fire for eternity if he fails to accept its every incredible claim about the universe, and he seems to require no evidence what so ever.

Sam Harris
