A Quote by Mr. on people, judgment, value, value judgment, shadings, words, connotations, individuals, groups, power, adjectives, and mr prophet


Words in general and adjectives in particular have power. It is a power that comes in degrees or shadings. People and even societies can make value judgments on others just by the shadings of the words they use. Weird, strange, different and unique are really just different shadings of the same word but evoke completely connotations when applied to individuals or groups of people.

A Quote by Domus Ulixes on people, advantage, stupid, growing, wisdom, blend in, and fear

There are two kinds of people, the ones that blend in, and those who do not seek to be accepted into an existing group only if they change who they are. These last are the people who wish to remain themselves. Both of these people fear. The first one will do all sorts of stupid things that they will regret in the future, if it were only to be accepted. And the other kind will choose not to do this stuff and show the world who they are. They to will do things that is regretted in the future. Because both will encounter a kind of sinister people, that will take advantage of the inexperience and their quest for social contact. In the end, it doesn't matter what kind of person you are to be accepted in society. Nor will it matter how much people will like you. What matters is in how well you will recognize the people that just want to take advantage, and those that don't.

A Quote by Abraham Hicks on vibrational harmony, attention, dont like, and people

If you've got somebody's aspects in your experience that you don't like, there's only one reason they're there. You keep evoking them with your attention to them. Without knowing about Law of Attraction, you have -- through your old habit of observation -- achieved vibrational harmony with the parts of them that you do not like, and you keep summoning those parts from them by your constant vibrational offering of them.

A Quote by Richard Branson on people, manager, and leadership

The number one thing that matters, especially if you’re going to be manager at Virgin, is how good you are with people. If you’re — if you’re good with people and you’ve got — you know, and you really care, genuinely care about people then I’m sure we could find a job for you at Virgin. I think, you know, that, you know, that the companies that look after their people are the companies that do really well. I’m sure we’d like a few other attributes, but that would be the most important one.

A Quote by Emily Dickinson on self and people

I'm Nobody!  Who are you?
Are you - Nobody - Too?
Then there's a pair of us!
Don't tell! they'd advertise us - you know!

How dreary - to be - Somebody!
How public - like a Frog -
To tell one's name - the livelong June -
To an admiring Bog!

Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)

A Quote by Domus Ulixes on god, world, beautiful, people, and eyes

The world is a beautiful place! I wouldn't change a thing. All I would want people to do, is open up their eyes to the whole world, and let them see the wonders already in it...
I'd be such a lousy God...
