Famous quotes and sentences with the word notions.
1
Magda Apanowicz
I wanted to make it a really strong point to not watch 'Battlestar Galactica' before starting 'Caprica' because I was afraid it was going to give me a lot of pressure and preconceived notions of what it was going to be like.
2
Marcus Aurelius
The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature.
3
Pearl Bailey
When you're young, the silliest notions seem the greatest achievements.
4
Aphra Behn
Nothing is more capable of troubling our reason, and consuming our health, than secret notions of jealousy in solitude.
5

6

7
Mary Browne
Preconceived notions are the locks on the door to wisdom.
8
Sandra Bullock
I think most of us are raised with preconceived notions of the choices we're supposed to make. We waste so much time making decisions based on someone else's idea of our happiness - what will make you a good citizen or a good wife or daughter or actress. Nobody says, 'Just be happy - go be a cobbler or go live with goats.'
9
Jane Welsh Carlyle
It is odd what notions men seem to have of the scantiness of a woman's resources. They do not find it anything out of nature that they should be able to exist by themselves; but a woman must always be borne about on somebody's shoulders, and dandled or chirped to, or it is supposed she will fall into the blackest melancholy!
10
Gwendoline Christie
Part of the reason why I love acting is that you do hope that somehow your work will connect to people and somehow expand their consciousness somewhat, and being able to challenge notions of prejudice through work - through my work - is really thrilling.
