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.
Negative. I have the gun. Good luck, sir.
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.
There are no negatives in life, only challenges to overcome that will make you stronger.Eric R. bates
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
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
One day I said to myself that it would be better to get rid of all that—melody, rhythm, harmony, etc. This was not a Negative thought and did not mean that it was necessary to avoid them, but rather that, while doing something else, they would appear spontaneously. We had to liberate ourselves from the direct and peremptory consequence of intention and effect, because the intention would always be our own and would be circumscribed, when so many other forces are evidently in action in the final effect.christian wolff
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
The round-square may be impossible, but we believe in it because it is impossible. [E.E.] Cummings is a very great expert in all these, so to speak, illegal syntactical devices: his misuse of parts of speech, his use of Negative prefixes, his word-coining, his systematic relation of words that grammar and syntax don’t permit us to relate all this makes him a magical bootlegger or moonshiner of language, one who intoxicates us on a clear liquor no government has legalized with its stamp.Randall Jarrell
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
Dialectical thought understands the critical tension between “is” and “ought” first as an ontological condition, pertaining to the structure of Being itself. However, the recognition of this state of Being its theory intends from the beginning a concrete practice. Seen in the light of a truth which appears in them falsified or denied, the given facts themselves appear false and Negative.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
The goal is to make it such a Negative thing that the retailers won't carry it, This thing hasn't really reached critical mass as a [public relations] problem yet; that's what I'm trying to do.jack thompson
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.
Observers of Jim Jones' Peoples Temple noted that Jones' socialist sect did not lose non-profit status or receive reams of Negative publicity until the massacre at Guyana occurred.
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
No matter how effective your rebuttal may seem to be to you, a response will "bump" the problem into greater prominence and relevance in the search engine results, which then turns your headache into a migraine. This is doubly dangerous since "bumping" the Negative information potentially introduces the "Streisand Effect" into the equation, which is something to avoid if at all possible. It is commonly defined as a phenomenon in which an attempt to censor or remove a piece of information on the web backfires, causing greater publicity.
