Famous quotes containing the words behavior, excuses and/or bad:
“Fatalism, whose solving word in all crises of behavior is All striving is vain, will never reign supreme, for the impulse to take life strivingly is indestructible in the race. Moral creeds which speak to that impulse will be widely successful in spite of inconsistency, vagueness, and shadowy determination of expectancy. Man needs a rule for his will, and will invent one if one be not given him.”
—William James (18421910)
“We have today and I could call their name
Who know exactly what is out of joint
To make their verse and their excuses lame.
Theyve tried to grasp with too much social fact
Too large a situation.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
“We all have bad days, of course, a secret that only makes us feel more guilty. But once my friends and I started telling the truth about how far we deviated from perfection, we couldnt stop. . . . One mother admitted leaving the grocery store without her kidsI just forgot them. The manager found them in the frozen foods aisle, eating Eskimo Pies.”
—Mary Kay Blakely (20th century)
