I am happy to say that everyone that I have met in my life, I have gained something from them; be it negative or positive, it has enforced and reinforced my life in some aspect.
It was fun yet challenging to play the dual roles. I'm a really nice guy, and the character [of Dubious] is egocentric and hard-edged, so I had to pull out the Negative aspects of me to attribute to the role.carson grant
The UFO research and investigation business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps of corrupt ideology run free, agenda dictates, delusion is rampant and ignorance prevails. The infestation of wrongful motivation and the beggarly depths of belief reign supreme amidst a universal disregard for truth and factual actuality... where good men die like dogs. There's also a Negative side . . .kenny young
My attitude to peace is rather based on the Burmese definition of peace - it really means removing all the Negative factors that destroy peace in this world. So peace does not mean just putting an end to violence or to war, but to all other factors that threaten peace, such as discrimination, such as inequality, poverty.
Less volatile stocks tend to have Negative abnormal profits; more volatile stocks tend to have positive abnormal profits.robert haugen
Jackie Biskupski is running for a seat in the Utah Legislature, and she's attracting a lot of attention because she's a lesbian. Her Republican opponent, Dan Alderson, is a staunch Mormon, and is running a Negative ad campaign calling her lifestyle abnormal and deviant. His six wives agree.
Faith strikes me as intellectual laziness, but I don't argue with it especially as I am rarely in a position to prove that it is mistaken. Negative proof is usually impossible.
Alle Befriedigung, oder was man gemeinhin Glu« ck nennt, ist eigentlich und wesentlich immer nur negativ und durchaus nie positiv. All satisfaction, or what iscommonlycalled happiness, is really and essentially always Negative only, and never positive.Arthur Schopenhauer
A good many times I have been present at gatherings of people who?are thought highly educated and who have?been expressing their incredulityat the illiteracy of scientists.Once or twice I have been provoked and have asked the company how many of them could describe the Second Law of Thermodynamics. The response was cold: it was also Negative.
A certain amount of arrogance is essential in carrying forward an idea. In talking about the device with others, it is surprising now in retrospect the number of people who either were quite Negative and had reasons to suggest it would not function as described or claimed that it would be of little interest and no better than some already existing device.
We have the tendency to judge others by their surface appearance, and to find only their Negative qualities. But if we search beneath the surface we discover that a myriad of strains mix together to create a particular person’s nature. The faults we perceive are likely to be the effect of circumstances, the psychological response to trauma, abuse, rejection, heartbreak, insecurity, pain, confusion, or disease.radhanath swami
I must say the Linux community is a lot nicer than the Unix community. A Negative comment on Unix would warrent death threats. With Linux, it is like stirring up a nest of butterflies.kenneth thompson
The misnamed "feminine" woman, so admired by her creator, man the woman who is acquiescent in her inferiority and who has swallowed man's image of her as his ordained helpmate and no more is in reality the "masculine" woman. The truly feminine woman "cannot help burning with that inner rage that comes from having to identify with her exploiter's Negative image of her," and having to conform to her persecutor's idea of femininity and its man-decreed limitations.elizabeth gould davis
To cut out every Negative root would simultaneously mean choking off positive elements that might arise from it further up the stem of the plant. We should not feel embarrassed by our difficulties, only by our failure to grow anything beautiful from them.Alain de Botton
Subjective reason … is inclined to abandon the fight with religion by setting up two different brackets, one for science and philosophy, and one for institutionalized mythology, thus recognizing both of them. For the philosophy of objective reason there is no such way out. Since it hold to the concept of objective truth, it must take a positive or a Negative stand with regard to the content of established religion.max horkheimer
Today, the stranglehold of the controlling Negative forces upon Earth is extremely advanced and is choking the very life from our planet. The effects of this are evident everywhere in the form of fear, separation, war, disease and multifarious kinds of disharmony on all levels.david icke
If you perceive yourself in a Negative manner then success is next to impossible.steve maraboli
This organization of functional discourse is of vital importance; it serves as a vehicle of coordination and subordination. The unified, functional language is an irreconcilably anti-critical and anti-dialectical language. In it, operational and behavioral rationality absorbs the transcendent, Negative, oppositional elements of Reason.herbert marcuse
I regard Shelley's early 'atheism' and later Pantheism, as simply the Negative and the affirmative side of the same progressive but harmonious life-creed. In his earlier years his disposition was towards a vehement denial of a theology which he never ceased to detest; in his maturer years he made more frequent reference to the great World Spirit in whom he had from the first believed. He grew wiser in the exercise of his religious faith, but the faith was the same throughout; there, was progression, but no essential change.Percy Bysshe Shelley
“Anyone who has actually had to take responsibility for consequences by running any kind of enterprise whether economic or academic, or even just managing a sports team is likely at some point to be chastened by either the setbacks brought on by his own mistakes or by seeing his successes followed by Negative consequences that he never anticipated.”thomas sowell
Prospective participants in The Forum, which has been classified as an LGAT, were compared with nonparticipating peers and with available normative samples on measures of well-being, Negative life events, social support, and philosophical orientation. Results revealed that prospective participants were significantly more distressed than peer and normative samples of community residents and had a higher level of impact of recent Negative life events compared with peer (but not normative) samples.
The LGAT participants also appeared to have a somewhat higher level of impact of recent Negative life events compared with the peer nominees but not compared with the normative sample.
In the work of Havel and Konrád there is an interesting semantic division of labour. Both authors use the terms "Eastern Europe" or "East European" when the context is neutral or Negative; when they write "Central" or "East Central," the statement is invariably positive, affirmative, or downright sentimental.

Drunkenness, for example, is temporary suicide: the happiness that it brings is merely Negative, a momentary cessation of unhappiness.bertrand russell
