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.
Great Negative, how vainly would the wise Enquire, define, distinguish, teach, devise, Didst thou not stand to point their blind Philosophies.Rochester, John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of
This is not a reaction against a Negative world. It's a response to a Negative world.billy corgan
If hooking a car battery up to a monkey's brain will help find the cure for AIDS and save somebody's life, I have two things to say … the red is positive and the black is Negative.Nick DiPaolo
Music is therapy for me. It's my outlet for every Negative thing I've ever been through. It lets me turn something bad into something beautiful.amy lee
The communications challenge faced by reform movements the world over and illustrated by this incident is this: in the modern communications business, particularly in the case of television, Negative is more newsworthy than positive; short term is more newsworthy than long term; disagreement is more newsworthy than agreement; emotion-laden critiques are more newsworthy than well reasoned proposals for constructive change; discord, threats to order, and bad government are much more newsworthy than peace, order, and good government.preston manning
In every human being one or the other of these two instincts is predominant: the active or positive instinct to offer hospitality, the Negative or passive instinct to accept it. And either of these instincts is so significant of character that one might as well say that mankind is divisible into two great classes: hosts and guests.max beerbohm
I frequently leave areas of raw, unprimed canvas unpainted (as in her painting Chairman of the Board, 1971, fh… …That ‘Negative’ space has just as active a role as the ‘positive’ painted space. The Negative spaces maintain shapes of their own and are not empty.Helen Frankenthaler
When I am tired, it is easy to believe that my exhaustion is the reason I am depressed and lonely and uninspired. But when I am well-rested [sic], I can realize that these Negative feelings are not a result of too little sleep. They are a result of my being a miserable, hopeless, misanthropic wretch.john s. hall
Make a party over your Negative thoughts, assuring them that they are the safest, the most cautious, company you have ever kept. At first they will swallow your flattery, but then suddenly, stricken with shame, and knowing themselves for the impostors they are, out and off they will go.henry s. haskins
This idea is confirmed in Scripture; it is distinctly stated that one sole thing, fear of God, is the object of the whole Law with its affirmative and Negative precepts, its promises and its historical examples, for it is said, "If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this Law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, the Lord thy God" (Deut. xxviii. 58) This is one of the two purposes of the Akedah (sacrifice or binding of Isaac).maimonides
[Feminism] is alienating women from their own bodies … because they don’t understand that they have something that men want , okay? So they’re encouraged to interpret all male lust as oppressive and victimizing and Negative, instead of seeing that it is up to them to husband this flame. They have a flame, and it’s enormously powerful…camille paglia
I did not share the enthusiasm of certain politicians for the National Front leader, it was because I had noticed, in the past, some strange contradictions between Mossadeq's declared ends and his actions. Officially he defended nationalist anti-colonialism and was the most intransigent patriot who declared that no concessions or advantages should be granted to foreign powers. He described his doctrine as a "Negative balance" and in fact his greatest failing was that he was Negative.muhammad reza pahlavi

Transnational Corporations must be legally accountable for the Negative human rights impacts of their activities.
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
A 4-year-old reading a book about a talking bear, or in my case a bear that hugs trees, it's an innocent little fantasy. If a child loves picking up that book every night, I think the positive outweighs the Negative - if there is any Negative. I'd strongly argue there isn't.
Analysis of rebellion leads at least to the suspicion that, contrary to the postulates of contemporary thought, a human nature does exist, as the Greeks believed. Why rebel if there is nothing permanent in oneself worth preserving? ... Rebellion, though apparently Negative, since it creates nothing, is profoundly positive in that it reveals the part of man which must always be defended.Albert Camus
