A Quote by unknown on bangs, declaration of love, exception to the rule, girls, punches, and signs

Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you, he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday, you'll meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending.
Every movie we see, every story we're told, implores to us wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule that sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending we don't learn how to read the signs. How to tell the ones who want us from the ones who don't. The ones who'll stay from the ones who'll leave.
Maybe this happy ending doesn't include a wonderful guy... Maybe its you. On your own, picking up the pieces and starting over. Freeing yourself up for something better in the future."

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on interests, passion, signs, coincidence, and synchronicity

When we're interested in something, everything around us appears to refer to it (the mystics call these phenomena "signs," the sceptics "coincidence," and psychologists "concentrated focus," although I've yet to find out what term historians should use).

A Quote by Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton on weakness, men, belief, philosophy, denial, corrupt, and signs

"Of all the weaknesses little men rail against, there is none that they are more apt to ridicule than the tendency to believe. And of all the signs of a corrupt heart and a feeble head, the tendency of incredulity is the surest. Real philosophy seeks rather to solve than to deny."

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on expedient devices, unexcelled path, slight wisdom, signs, dharma, and bodhisattvas

Be it known that
Men of dull faculties and slight wisdom,
They who cling proudly to signs,
Cannot believe in this Dharma.  
Now I, joyfully and fearlessly,
In the midst of the bodhisattvas
Frankly casting aside my expedient devices,
Merely preach the Unexcelled Path. 

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

A Quote by Isha De Lubicz on signs, actions, and abilities

What matters is not to apply a definition but to observe the characteristic signs of a disposition allotted by destiny or achieved by effort.  Among such symptoms are the tendency to sympathize with the sufferings of others, not in a sense of pity, but by opening the heart so that its radiation, without selection or discrimination, acts by itself as a balm of impersonal healing.  Other signs are material and spiritual generosity, as opposed to avarice and envy; the feeling of awareness of solidarity; an effective sense of responsibility; and the acceptance of all that makes for simplicity of thought and feeling, looking at all times for the essential point and rejecting perfunctory opinions and fashionable prejudices.
