Quotes about Usually and Friendship
Usually Quotes

Please enjoy these Quotes about Usually and Friendship from my collection of Friendship quotes.

Each of us is burdened by an unlimited number of
expectations (demands) that we hold for the actions of others.
We "know" that there is a right way to do things,
and are often outraged when our expectations are not met.
Usually, we are unaware that we merely
have a strong opinion and point-of-view,
and are sure that we know how everything is supposed to be.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We all should choose our friends carefully.
I used to think that no one could know me better than somebody else,
because you're inside yourself, your body, you can't see yourself.
If you think like that, you surround yourself with
other people who are willing to tell you who you are,
which are usually judgmental people ...
we should really surround ourselves with the ones
that adore us and believe in the highest of us.
- Jewel

Parents are usually more careful to bestow knowledge
on their children rather than virtue,
the art of speaking well rather than doing well;
but their manners should be of the greatest concern.
- R. Buckminster Fuller

What one has to do usually can be done.
- Eleanor Roosevelt

Often, we get stuck on a question

My ideas usually come not at my desk writing
but in the midst of living.
- Anais Nin

Conversations with God are very different
from the usual nature of prayer.

for specific things or outcomes one wants,
rather than seeking to better understand the mind of God.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot.
- John Lennon

This overcoming of all the usual barriers

This is the everlasting and triumphant mystical tradition,
hardly altered by differences of clime or creed.
- William James

Be clear with yourself about what you mean

Happiness lies in having no expectations,
and accepting life as it comes.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Living in fear of anything is a terrible waste
of what could be a great life.
If you live in fear of losing your job,

or you fear the loss of material goods -
house, car, and such.
If you live in fear of losing your stuff and money,
it is clear that they own you.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Whenever God wakes in us, our thinking
becomes clear - nothing is missing.

Keep close to Nature's heart...

Run out and find me a four-year-old child,
I can't make head or tail of it.
- the Groucho Marx movie Duck Soup

and the way to joy becomes clear.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

When love and hate are both absent
everything becomes clear and undisguised.
- Osho

the water in the sea is dark.
The small truth has words which are clear;
the great truth has great silence.

The River surges. The River quiets.
The River overflows its banks. The River dries to a trickle.

The River is indifferent to what benefit
or what harm is caused by its water.
The River is the River, and that is all there is to it.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own. Nobody. You built a factory out there - good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory... Now look. You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea - God bless! Keep a hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along."
- Elizabeth Warren

Mind can never be intelligent - only no-mind is intelligent.
Only no-mind is original and radical.
Only no-mind is revolutionary - revolution in action.
The mind gives you a sort of stupor.
Burdened by the memories of the past,
burdened by the projections of the future,
you go on living - at the minimum.
You dont live at the maximum.
Your flame remains very dim.
Once you start dropping thoughts,
the dust that you have collected in the past,
the flame arises - clean, clear, alive, young.
Your whole life becomes a flame,
and a flame without any smoke.
That is what awareness is.
- Osho

See beauty in those unexpected places.
(she asked herself how people could let Bach be background noise.)
See the opportunity in what looks like inconvenience.
(she steered clear of the traffic jam
and went to the bakery she's been meaning to stop at.)
She embraces the undeclared possibility
in what seems like just another ordinary day.
(her friend is scheduled for cancer surgery
and suddenly everything around her seems so very precious.)
- Mary Anne Radmacher

A friend encourages your dreams and offers advice -
but when you don't follow it,
they still respect and love you.

Let it rather be a moving sea
between the shores of your souls.

Life is a sum of all your choices.

but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself
that you have built against it.

A true friend never gets in your way
unless you happen to be going down.
- Arnold H. Glasgow

The best way to keep your friends
is not to give them away.
- Wilson Mizner

An insincere and evil friend is more
to be feared than a wild beast;
a wild beast may wound your body,
but an evil friend will wound your mind.
- The Buddha

It is a great confidence in a friend
to tell him your faults;
greater to tell him his.
- Benjamin Franklin

Impart as much as you can of your spiritual being
to those who are on the road with you,
and accept as something precious
what comes back to you from them.
- Albert Schweitzer

When it hurts to look back,
and you're scared to look ahead,
you can look beside you
and your best friend will be there.
- Anonymous

Your friend is the man who knows all about you,
and still likes you.
- Elbert Hubbard

When you part from your friend, you grieve not;
For that which you love most in him may be
clearer in his absence,
as the mountain to the climber
is clearer from the plain.
- Khalil Gibran

A friend or co-worker shares a political,
religious, economic, or social opinion
that is opposite to yours -
does that drive a wedge between your hearts?

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.
Small people always do that,

you, too, can become great.

close to your heart and there for support.
