10 QUOTES WITH «SEARCHING»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word searching.
1
John Abercrombie
You're just sort of searching for this 'thing' and sometimes you get it and sometimes you don't. All music is imperfect, but in jazz since you're improvising, at least the way I play, I'm trying to follow my train of thought in a solo.
2
Christopher Alexander
We are searching for some kind of harmony between two intangibles: a form which we have not yet designed and a context which we cannot properly describe.
3
Christina Applegate
I think another problem people have is they are always searching for that high, and they don't realize they can get that same high with that same person again.
4
Antony Beevor
The temptation in any approaching crisis or conflict is, because people haven't got a clue what lies ahead, they're always searching into the past for some sort of pattern ... to galvanise the nation or their supporters and put themselves on a pedestal to sound Churchillian or Rooseveltian.
5
Maria Bello
I'm interested in people who have lived, who are searching and questioning.
6
Jimmy Buffett
Searching is half the fun: life is much more manageable when thought of as a scavenger hunt as opposed to a surprise party.
7
Jane Campion
Women often postpone their lives, thinking that if they're not with a partner then it doesn't really count. They're still searching for their prince, in a way. And as much as we don't discuss that, because it's too embarrassing and too sad, I think it really does exist.
8
Emily Carr
Oh, Spring! I want to go out and feel you and get inspiration. My old things seem dead. I want fresh contacts, more vital searching.
9
Raquel Cassidy
I loved doing 'Teachers.' I don't know if it's set me on a road, but it certainly got me out of financial penury for two years. But as much as I love it - and it's a huge sacrifice - as much as I love it, I'm in acting because I'm searching to do lots of different things.
10
Melanie Chisholm
I just feel, in life, I'm searching for something I can rely on, something that's constant and something that's going to guide me through. And I felt that the Northern Star is a very beautiful image of that.
