As we lose our vagueness about ourself, our values, our life situation, we become available to the moment. It is there, in the particular, that we contact the creative self. Art lies in the moment of encounter: we meet our truth and we meet ourselves; we meet ourselves and we meet our self-expression .
The way people respond to struggles or express their feelings in difficult situations are very different. I like imagining how characters would react in certain situations.

My maturity level is rising. I think there are certain situations that I’m handling better than in the past.
When I fell in love with hip-hop, there was a terminology at the time called “battling.” All that was just battling with other artists, but after Tupac and those incidents when it spilled into the street and turned into a negative situation, battling turned into a beef. A whole new dynamic.
The happiest pillow on which you may rest your head is the knowledge of God’s will. I cannot imagine a more miserable situation than consciously to be out of God’s will.
If you can keep your head when all about are losing theirs, it’s just possible that you haven’t grasped the situation.
The possibility of saying anything about a thing rests on the assumption that it preserves its identity, or continues to be the same thing in the respect described, that it will behave in future situations as it has in past.

It has to do a lot more than just twerking. It’s feel good music; it makes people have a good time. It doesn’t matter what type of situation they’re in, we bounce all around New Orleans. Weddings, birthday parties, funerals. The whole nine yards, and it’s a happy music, it turns people from a frown to a happy smile.
I would prefer to be well-liked in any and all situations.
There is a higher power, a higher influence, a God who rules and reigns and controls circumstances and situations that are beyond your area and realm of authority.
The only thing missing in any situation is that in which you are not giving
I love a hard-hit ball, a diving-play situation where you realize afterward there was no thinking involved. It was 100 percent reaction.
The situation in Syria is quite different from Libya.
Meanings are not determined by situations, but we determine ourselves by the meanings we give to situations.
There is no such thing as a hopeless situation. Every single circumstances of your life can change!
I don’t see a clerical class in the New Testament to which evangelism has been delegated. Preaching is not the only way to evangelize; it can happen in everyday conversations too. And you don’t need a special gift to witness to the Lord in these situations.
As a psychologist, I can tell you that there are people who look very good in a group, but they’re very different in a one-on-one situation.
I was never a guy who came into a new situation on a team being vocal right away. I kind of monitored the situation, observed the situation and then found my role throughout that process.

Tatyana Golikova
At Girl Scouts, we are committed to raising awareness about the terrible effects of cyber bullying, and to teaching girls how to recognize the signs of bullying of any sort and extricate themselves or another from a bad situation before it spirals out of control and ends in tragedy.
It’s not a perfect situation. But when you have to choose between two bad options, you pick the one that saves the people you love and believe in most. You just do. Okay?
The way of Zen is to become independent and strong. Don’t rely on others for perceptions of life and truth. Do it individually. Go to a teacher of Zen to learn how to do that, not to get answers for individual life situations.
Since I’m in a band, and I’m not usually in situations where I need to read, it doesn’t come up as often, and I don’t rely on it as much.
The time when domestic violence is the most lethal is when the person is trying to leave the situation.
Julie Johnston
There are times when we can blame a situation on others, but we own our reactions to them. There comes a point where we are the ones responsible for our choices and excuses don’t carry weight anymore.
A difficult situation, not for one individual, but for everybody
I wrote a book called The Taste of New Wine because I couldn’t find a book that talked about the reality of the situation and how we were dishonest and afraid.
Game management is very important. Realizing the situation of a match.
Trust means you anchor your heart in the reality of God’s awareness of your situation.
There are some situations one simply cannot be neutral about, because when you are neutral you are an accomplice. Objectivity doesn’t mean treating all sides equally. It means giving each side a hearing.
When you get in situations where you cannot afford to make a mistake, it’s very hard to do the right thing. So if you’re trying to do the right thing, the right thing might be to eliminate the cost of making a mistake rather than try to guess what’s right.
There is, however, a somber point in the social outlook of Americans. Their sense of equality and human dignity is mainly limited to people of white skin…. The more I feel like an American, the more the situation pains me.
Unfortunately I don’t live by a Target now, so I just go to a regular Starbucks as opposed to a Starbucks nested inside a Target, which is my ideal situation. That works out for me. I like that white noise, those interruptions, and the people around me.
Being positive in a negative situation is not naive. It’s leadership.
Being at NASA and having the access to both computing capability and satellite observation capability is kind of the ideal research situation to try to understand global climate change.
Courageous men never lose the zest for living even though their life situation is zestless; cowardly men, overwhelmed by the uncertainties of life, lose the will to live. We must constantly build dykes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.
Short stories and some short novels are close to poetry–with the fewest words they capture the essence of a situation, of a human being. It’s like trying to pin down the eternal moment.
Gina Berriault
In such situations, of course, people don’t nurse their anger silently, they moan aloud; but these are not frank, straightforward moans, there is a kind of cunning malice in them, and that’s the whole point. Those very moans express the sufferer’s delectation; if he did not enjoy his moans, he wouldn’t be moaning.
Every man has a right over his own life and war destroys lives that were full of promise; it forces the individual into situations that shame his manhood, obliging him to murder fellow men, against his will.
Music itself is going to become like running water or electricity. So it’s like, just take advantage of these last few years because none of this is ever going to happen again. You’d better be prepared for doing a lot of touring because that’s really the only unique situation that’s going to be left.
I think the worst thing you can do about a situation is nothing.
I don’t know what its like for most actors, but really clearly for myself acting has always been the fulfillment of personal fantasies. It isn’t just art, its about being a person I’ve always wanted to be, or being in a situation, or being a hero.
Our situation is more psychological than people will admit.
Black kids kill Black kids for the same reason cops do.
They see no value.
I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or dehumanized.
Once you empower people and say,’ Here you are, now you get to dream the great dream of becoming a full citizen with equal rights and radical improvement in your living situation,’ you are creating an illusion which will break one day.
There’s an inner feeling you get when you get in a situation to do well in a game. It’s hard to explain.
The impossibility and hypocrisy of a situation where kids are expected to be honest but are judged and alienated from their community because of it should not escape us.
No one truly knows what they will do in a certain situation until they are actually in it. It’s very easy to judge someone else’s actions by what you assume your own would be, if you were in their shoes. But we only know what we THINK we would do, not what we WOULD do.
Sometimes when you’re overwhelmed by a situation – when you’re in the darkest of darkness – that’s when your priorities are reordered.
I don’t think you should always stay calm in a tense situation, because you might not ever confront the problem. Maybe it’s better to actually let yourself be tense – and find a solution.
We are today, in this country, convulsed by the situation in Iraq. It is an extraordinary crisis. It is taxing our men and women in uniform, and it is certainly taxing our resolve.
The situation in the film is like me going out to Venice Beach and talking to a homeless guy on the boardwalk, and 13 years later he’s the president.
I fly in dreams, I know it is my privilege, I do not recall a single situation in dreams when I was unable to fly. To execute every sort of curve and angle with a light impulse, a flying mathematics – that is so distinct a happiness that it has permanently suffused my basic sense of happiness.
Istanbul owes its extraordinary situation to Golden Horn, Marmara Sea and The Bosphorus.
Edmondo De Amicis
When you are in deep meditation you don’t feel meditation, you feel bliss. When you are deep in meditation, when you are deep in awareness, you don’t feel awareness, you feel bliss.

The police had a practice of entrapping people. This was done all over the country, but we had a particularly vicious group here in Southern California because of the Hollywood situation. They knew they could get a lot of them. They were shaking down people for thousands in blackmail.
I think ever since Numbers ended, I’ve been trying to find a way to get back in a situation like that. It was lovely to drive in traffic with other people going to their jobs every day.
People seek to put you in an off-balance situation so they can get to you. Psychic people, people who meditate, are more susceptible; they are more open and sensitive. It is easier to jam them.

Happiness is understanding that friendship is more precious than mere things, more precious than getting your own way, more precious than being in situations where true principles are not at stake.
Being silent for me doesn’t require being in a quiet place and it doesnt mean not saying words. It means, “receiving in a balanced, noncombative way what is happening.” With or without words, the hope of my heart is that it will be able to relax and acknowledge the truth of my situation with compassion.
I’ve tried to incorporate new ways of playing the game. That’s why you hear people call me a ‘hybrid goalie’ and say I adjust to the situation, never doing the same thing over and over like a butterfly goalie. I try to see what works and hopefully with my talent I’m able to play it and make it happen.
Indeed, the interests of the oppressors lie in ‘changing the consciousness of the oppressed, not the situation which oppresses them.

It is undeniable that the French were in a better situation in 1960s then than they are today in 2017. I don’t look in the rearview mirror. But there was no need for us to experience an end to social progress since then.
Somewhat predictably, I’m much more comfortable in front of an audience – and a big audience is even better – than faced with one stranger. This always seems like a bit of a failing on my part, as a human. I think that’s also why I put myself situations where I’m forced to engage in other ways.
If we get our self-esteem from superficial places, from our popularity, appearance, business success, financial situation, health, any of these, we will be disappointed, because no one can guarantee that we’ll have them tomorrow.

I’ve never written about a situation involving real people that I haven’t directly taken part in. I’ve never made things up about other people. None of my stories were written with ill-intent towards the other people in them, even though I doubt people will believe that about “Adrien Brody.”
Two conditions render difficult this historic situation of mankind: It is full of tremendously deadly armament, and it has not progressed morally as much as it has scientifically and technically.
I discovered what is and isn’t important to me. I decided I really wanted to enjoy life with someone fun, who can make the best out of any situation – whatever it is we’re doing.
Many Buddhist teachers have described compassion as the ability to react freely and accurately in any situation. Being nice or feeling sorry for someone may be called for, but so may being fierce and unyielding. When sweetness is applied indiscriminately, it is seen as ‘idiot compassion.’
Issan Dorsey
I’ve never been conscious of having any real career plan, and I do not have a wish-list of actors, directors, screenwriters, or cameramen I’m hoping to work with. Life, I feel, has a way of leading us to the right situations and people, or at least to interesting ones.

No matter who you are, what you’ve accomplished, what your financial situation is – when you’re dealing with a parent with Alzheimer‘s, you yourself feel helpless.

From this day on, I refuse to let anyone bring me to a point where I can’t take a horrible situation and spin it into something beneficial. I will never let anyone make me feel anything I don’t want to feel again or rob me of the passions that make me who I am.
I just never want to be in this situation where I get to set and they’re like, “We rewrote this scene, you’re now naked.” I need a little prep work.

Whenever we give help, we unfailingly see that the answer to all our needs is already within the very situation we think is hurting us.

The climate of today is not really focused as much as it was then on being able to speak about different cultural issues or different situations that were going on politically.

I don’t know, in view of the situation, and the act going where it was going, I don’t know, the rage – the rage did go all over the place. It went to everybody in the room.

Yes, alas, I’ve been on some recording sessions where the music wasn’t good. Not so many, really, considering how many I’ve done. It’s a very awkward situation because to do a recording well you focus on the positive of what will make the piece better.

Everybody wants to talk about black and white, when the situation is really about rich people against poor people.

When it seems humanly impossible to do more in a difficult situation, surrender yourself to the inner silence and thereafter wait for a sign of obvious guidance or for a renewal of inner strength.
When we name things correctly, we comprehend them correctly, without adding information or judgements that aren’t there. Does someone bathe quickly? Don’t say be bathes poorly, but quickly. Name the situation as it is, don’t filter it through your judgments. Give your assent only to that which is actually true.
I would go back in time and do differently it is that. I would go back and ask, ‘Why?’ But I never did. I got up, he got up, we went on about our day. We never discussed the situation [with Dre]. Just, never.

I dont think tragic situations are necessarily devoid of beauty.

I think the core problem is much closer to recognizing where force is of value, where it is useful, and to distinguish that from situations in which war is not useful or is indeed counterproductive.

We need a united front against Islamic State and Assad happens to be the decisive power that can fight them. But the situation is preposterous because we also have to respect the calls for change. I would be in favor of a dignified change.
I’m giving my fans the songs that they want to hear from me. Why do we love to hear ourselves being downgraded. Why do we love to hear the negative situations that we see in our lives daily? I’m not trying to make sense of it, I’m not giving any solutions, I’m just tossing the question.
I can only say that one’s individual situation is more real and important to oneself than the devastations of fates and empires especially when they do not vitally affect oneself.
I write what I write and I honestly don’t care if it gets on or not. I’m writing to see if I can find out some of what I think about any number of situations. I work it out in the writing.
It is a magical thing for a handful of words, artfully arranged, to stop time. To conjure a place, a person, a situation, in all its specificity and dimensions. To affect us and alter us, as profoundly as real people and things do.
I grew up in a condition where I could have chosen to go either way, negatively or positively. So I kind of chose to go positive and that stayed with me through my life, always have to have a positive outlook on whatever situation there is

Today we ought to be able to see first that Booker T. Washington faced a situation in which he was seeking desperately for a way out, and he could see no way out except capitulation.

Usually they have to deal with a dubbing situation or subtitles, and it takes you out of the experience. That’s why we wanted to make something that felt really immersive for Chiniese audience, but it takes a lot of work to make 2 versions of a movie!
A pretext-not a cause-is sufficient for us to enter the “solitary situation”, the situation of the dreaming solitude. In this solitude, memories arrange themselves in tableaux. Decor takes precedence over drama. Sad memories take on at least the peace of melancholy.
It’s pretty refreshing to be in a situation where the spotlight is on someone else.
I never make a film with a message in mind. I’m more interested in the characters; how they are related to each other and the situation they’re in.

A moustache is actually the one thing I really can grow. One of the bad parts about my facial hair situation is that I can’t grow sideburns. I’m happy to still have my own hair on my head, but I can’t grow any sideburns. If you ever see me with sideburns, they’re not real.

We must never despair; our situation has been compromising before, and it has changed for the better; so I trust it will again. If difficulties arise, we must put forth new exertion and proportion our efforts to the exigencies of the times.
I have been working for Africans since I was 18, when I got involved with the Nelson Mandela concerts. I got involved with debt cancellation because Desmond Tutu demanded that the world respond to that situation.

Circumstance has no value. It is how one relates to the situation that has value. All the meaning resides in the personal relationship to a phenomenon, what it means to you.
I have no doubt that if an actual ticking bomb situation were to arise, our law enforcement authorities would torture.

When there is a gap between what’s on the outside and what’s on the inside, that’s when people retreat into their foxholes because it is an unsafe situation. You don’t know what you are dealing with. What you see is not what you are going to get. And that is when people start withdrawing.
Bush said the unemployment situation is turning around. Last week alone, 5,000 people started working for John Kerry.

When I asked God for strength, He gave me difficult situations to face.
In adversity, everything that surrounds you is a kind of medicine that helps you refine your conduct, yet you are unaware of it. In pleasant situations, you are faced with weapons that will tear you apart, yet you do not realize it.

My mother‘s incredibly giving, almost too giving at times. And, my dad is a real logical person. He’s got logic for every situation. They’ve been married for 24 years, so there was that stability, also. I really learned to think on my own at a very young age.
Finding someone who’s willing to drown with you creates a situation where you no longer want to drown.
You are called to stand up for life! To respect and defend the mystery of life always and everywhere, including the lives of unborn babies, giving real help and encouragement to mothers in difficult situations. You are called to work and pray against abortion.

I speculate that the genesis of the chicken-joke lies in some situation such as the one illustrated above, but over time the original context of the joke was lost, which left the chicken sadly decontextualized.
People tell me I saved hundreds and hundreds of people. But I have to tell you: it’s not the people you saved that you remember. It’s the ones you couldn’t save. Those are the ones you talk about. Those are the faces and situations that stay with you forever.

When I was very young and first worked in Hollywood, the films had bred in me one sole ambition: to get away from them; to live inthe great world outside movies; to meet people who created their own situations through living them; who ad-libbed their own dialogue; whose jokes were not the contrivance of some gag writer.
The only thing one can usually change in one’s situation is oneself. And yet one can’t change that either-only ask Our Lord to do so.

Fairness is a concept that holds only in limited situations. Yet we want the concept to extend to everything, in and out of phase. From snails to hardware stores to married life. Maybe no one finds it, or even misses it, but fairness is like love. What is given has nothing to do with what we seek.
What you pay attention to grows. If your attention is attracted to negative situations and emotions, then they will grow in your awareness.
Circumstances are seldom right. You never have the capacities, the strength, the wisdom, the virtue you ought to have. You must always do with less than you need in a situation vastly different from what you would have chosen…
We debated long over the situation for it is a very difficult question and all of us recognize its difficulty.
Our view is that we would want to see the situation in Ireland resolved, but we do not intervene in that situation for tactical reasons. Our view is commonly known that imperialism wherever it is must be fought and that justice must be done in Ireland.
If a hundred people want autographs, sometimes you have to say no because you’ve got to get up for a 4 A.M. flight or something. In that sense, it really pisses me off when people think you’ve become a diva. It’s not becoming a diva, it’s because of the situation, I think.
The notion that acting is simply about intuitively responding to situations the way you feel couldn’t be farther away from how I ask actors to work.
That’s why I’ve never thought of retiring because I do it all the time whether on the stage or off. I found that in a precarious situation, a smile is the shortest distance between people. When one needs to reach out for sympathy or a link with people, what better way is there?
The Getty family has been fully supportive throughout this situation, and for that, I am very grateful.
You have to go out of your way as a suspense novelist to find situations where the protagonists are somewhat helpless and in real danger.

Maybe because I began as a writer, I have a good ear for dialogue, and maybe being an English major – and that I also read a lot as a kid – if I hear somebody say something that I think’s funny, or I find a situation or story, I’ll try to work that into the movie.
I am personally convinced that one person can be a change catalyst, a ‘transformer’ in any situation, any organization. Such an individual is yeast that can leaven an entire loaf. It requires vision, initiative, patience, respect, persistence, courage, and faith to be a transforming leader.
A lot of people think that my work is about mocking or making fun of things, but a lot of it is about discomfort and making myself as uncomfortable as the men feel, or putting myself in a situation where I’m revealing my loneliness as much as they’re revealing theirs.
No matter what, I think people are trying to better themselves, or to better their situation, or to find something new and exciting.
With ‘Badhaai Ho,’ the lines are so quirky and the situation is so humorous, awkward, and bizarre that people are taking away a lot from the film. The dialogues are amazing. We aren’t trying to make people laugh, but the situation is like that, that people are laughing.
I had some pretty lucky and good living situations; thankfully I never got forced out of an apartment. A lot of my friends got evicted or pushed out and couldn’t afford a new place. For me, I wanted more space to set up a home studio, but there was no way to afford that.
A bifurcation of loyalties that requires religious to put canon law above civil law and moral law puts us in a situation where the keepers of religion may themselves become one of the greatest dangers to the credibility – and the morality – of the church itself.
You don’t suppose that the photo ops and the military convoys arriving at the same time were a coincidence, do you, Wolf … Situation Room.
The situation now is not easy. But I believe in the good sense of the Japanese people.
Katsuya Okada
Women in particular seem to say things like, “I’m sure I’d be the one screaming and not moving in an emergency.” I don’t think that’s the case. People who’ve been through really horrible life-or-death situations say that nobody behaves the way they would have expected. But that said, there are predictors.
My relationship to the Jewish people has become my strongest human bond, ever since I became fully aware of our precarious situation among the nations of the world.

A great deal of fear is a result of just “not knowing.” We do not know what is involved in a new situation. We do not know whether we can deal with it. The sooner we learn what it entails, the sooner we can dissolve our fear.
We need to have capabilities second to none. We need to create a situation where Chinies know that there will be adverse impacts if they continue to do what they’re doing.

Study the situation thoroughly, go over in your imagination the various courses of action possible to you and the consequences which can and may follow from each course. Pick out the course which gives the most promise and go ahead.
One of the main coaching points I’ve heard throughout my entire life is, ‘How you respond to difficult situations defines your character,’ and I think it’s a good saying. I also think it applies to more than just the players.

It is everything I thought it would be; being the Olympic champion, it definitely is an amazing feeling. And I give all the glory to God. It’s kind of a win-win situation. The glory goes up to him and the blessings fall down on me.

If you found yourself in a situation where you could either save a drowning man, or you could take a Pulitzer prize winning photograph of him drowning, what shutter speed and setting would you use?

I finally felt myself lifted definitively away on the winds of adventure toward worlds I envisaged would be stranger than they were, into situations I imagined would be much more normal than they turned out to be.
Seize what’s been handed you. Make smart decisions. Make decisions because life is a temporary situation.
Poetry is easier to learn than prose. Once you have learned it you can use it as a light and a laser. It shows up your true situation and it helps you cut through it.
I moved up beside Jamie.”I have to go.” She frowned at me. “Where?” I pressed a hand to the bottom of my belly. “My bladder.It-” Ah.” She gave a small laugh. “We interrupt this life-or-death situation for a pregnancy pee break. Don’t see that in the movies, do you?
When I’m writing a woman character, I don’t think, ‘What would a woman do?’ I just think, ‘What would this character do in this situation?
A good cartoon, what it does, is sum up a situation, very neatly, as opposed to reading a lot of articles and so on.
I have never in my life found myself in a situation where I’ve stopped work and said, ‘Thank God it’s Friday.’ But weekends are special even if your schedule is all over the place. Something tells you the weekend has arrived and you can indulge yourself a bit.
I don’t think that the leadership of Montgomery was prepared to capitalize, let’s put it, on the projection that had come out of the Montgomery situation. Certainly, they had not reached the point of developing an organizational format for the expansion of it. So discussions emanated, to a large extent, from up this way.
During the first two months of the war it was the Anarchists more than anyone else who had saved the situation, and much later than this the Anarchist militia, in spite of their indiscipline, were notoriously the best fighters among the purely Spanish forces.

But try to think of it as not being cursed
After all, in a hostage situation
You’d be released first!
Remember, your attitude toward a situation can help you to change it – you create the very atmosphere for defeat or victory.
I try to be happy as much as I can. I’m really not a downer; I hate victims. I hate needy people. I’m that person who always tries to make the best of any situation. I’m probably happiest when I’m with my kids or with a gaggle of gays.
The thought of being in space, and kind of enclosed, I find would be very claustrophobic. I think I would panic in that situation.
In other words, I believed, and still do believe, that truth, is frequently of its own essence, superficial, and that, in many cases, the depth lies more in the abysses where we seek her, than in the actual situations wherein she may be found.
We must also take this opportunity to learn from the situation [of Brexit], just as we learned from the refugee and debt crises.
There are people who say that if you are told that your house has fallen you don’t ask what about the ceiling or what about the windows. The main thing is that this house, Africa, has fallen. Literature is just one aspect, pick any aspect of the situation.
We are seeing reports that NATO’s sending early warning radar planes and German military personnel to Turkey. That might reduce the chances of another incident like this jet shoot down. And obviously both NATO and the U.S. are pressing their ally Turkey to urgently deescalate the situation.
All of us can work for peace. We can work right where we are, right within ourselves, because the more peace we have within our own lives, the more we can reflect into the outer situation.
I base all of my music around finding positivity in every thing & every situation.
There’s often times a big difference between what you actually thought/felt in a situation and what you think you thought/felt. You have to do a lot of work to make your thoughts/feelings possible to be understood by other people. It’s very draining, though also cathartic.
The source of our stress isn’t really difficulties, circumstances and situations-it’s our attitude and approach toward them.
I’m not a rock star. Sure I am, to a certain extent because of the situation, but when kids ask me how it feels to be a rock star, I say leave me alone, I’m not a rock star. I’m not in it for the fame, I’m in it because I like to play.
Sometimes with my children, I remember exactly how I felt as the child in this situation, not just how it feels to be me.
Being a mother is the best thing that ever happened to me. Before you have your first baby you are a girl and then you become a mother. There is no transition into being a woman; you literally become a mum and being a mum means you always love someone else more than yourself and it is an unexplainable situation.
I show up ready to play, so I normally try and fit the situation.
I really believe the only thing you can control in those situations is what you do as a player but also how you interact with your teammates, which is critical.
When you’re too mad and too rattled to see straight, you’re bound to make mistakes. You can’t go on and on for years being miserable about a situation and not have it change you. You get so you can’t stand yourself.
Outside the ring, I am Gennady, but when I get in, I am Triple G: I become a different guy. I don’t know how I switch, but I understand my job, I understand the situation, and I understand my business.
The impossibility of a retreat makes no difference in the situation of men resolved to conquer or die; and, believe me, my friends, if your conquest could be bought with the blood of your general, he would most cheerfully resign a life which he has long devoted to his country.
I’ve had the chance to work with some really good filmmakers. It’s put me in a situation where I’ve been surrounded by great actors, and for me it’s been a lot about standing in the background and watching people work.
