I couldn't possibly tell you. But I would say be very careful with your suppositions. People are so quick to jump. That's what I love about playing the character.

Just be very careful about drawing conclusions based on what you see.

[but] it's definitely not something that comes up in a conscious way when I read material. I have an incredible relationship with my mom, so I'm fascinated by mothers who do not have that. But I've never done anything that resembled my life. People always jump to that conclusion, and I wish life were that simple, but it's not.

Charlize Theron

Mann is widely recognized as a master of irony and ambiguity, yet it's remarkable how quickly people foreclose options he carefully leaves open.

Philip Kitcher

People are quick to jump to conclusions.

Lily Collins

Gilbert K. Chesterton

We think we know people. We think that what we see is all there is. We rarely ask ourselves what goes on behind the curtain. We jump to conclusions. And we take everything very personally.

Madonna Ciccone

Giese was an unemotional man, but then in the study of Solaris emotion is a hindrance to the explorer.

The fact is that in spite of his cautious nature the scrupulous Giese more than once jumped to premature conclusions. Even when on their guard, human beings inevitably theorize.

Stanislaw Lem

If you jump to conclusions, you make terrible landings.

29 inspiring quotes that will help you survive failures

Perhaps this year has prepared unpleasant surprises for everyone. Everything did not go the way many planned: projects are postponed, events are canceled, offices are closed, deadlines are missed.

Motivational quotes for students

What is good about motivational quotes is that they are universal. Wise words of smart people can be applied with confidence in any situation, to anything. Our successes and failures, while seemingly different, are essentially the same.

The authors of these amazing motivational quotes really lived life with all its complexities and were attentive enough to tell what they learned. But who are these quotes for? For us: eternal students, students. After all, there is still much to learn, and quotes are our little windows through which you can see the reverse side of our failures.

So, here is a set of motivational quotes:

1. "What you are looking for is also looking for you"
(Jalaladdin Rumi)

Rumi is an outstanding poet of antiquity and his words have inspired generations throughout history; among his sea of ​​wisdom, this quote is one of the most powerful. The interpretation is: keep fighting, keep failing, keep living, if you are honest and determined inside, the universe knows what you are striving for and it is already on its way to you. So be full of hope and never give up.

2. "There are two ways to live life: either as if there are no miracles, or as if all life is a miracle"
(Albert Einstein)

Gone are the days when giants moved mountains or water poured out of stone, and with this awareness we must learn to see realistic miracles - miracles that happen every day. Miracle may seem like a strong word, but what Einstein meant was that belief in the impossible, belief in what you think about, can be translated into reality. There are many more wonders to be discovered in this tiny world of ours; Newton, Einstein, Rumi, have discovered great things and have witnessed great miracles that they themselves have performed, but since there is much more to be discovered, we need to believe in ourselves, then we too can bring miracles to life.

3. "The most common way people give up their power is to think they don't have it"
(Alice Walker)

Comparing yourself to others is such a bad habit; you will never win or lose, beat or humiliate yourself based on the conclusions you have made by comparing yourself to someone else. This is because each of us is different and has unique qualities. So, in truth, the one you envy has something special, just like YOU! We can't be everything, but each of us can be someone! So believe that you have this power and try to find it.

4. "Be the change you want to see in the world"
(Mahatma Gandhi)

It is as easy to complain as it is difficult to take responsibility. Many people talk about what is wrong in the world. But you can make those changes that can turn life for the better tomorrow. We may not be responsible for the mess that is going on in our world, but we are solely responsible for our contribution to that mess.

5. "It always seems impossible until it's done"
(Nelson Mandela)

Mandela changed the fate of all Africans; it may seem impossible now after a long struggle, but it really happened, right? Our minds are not our best friends if we don't know how they work. So, no matter what we want to achieve, the obstacles on the way will always seem bigger (thanks to our mind). But we have to be smarter and listen to what Mandela said, it's possible after all - it just doesn't seem to be the case. So hold on, because after every dark night there is always dawn.

6. "Do you believe you can succeed, and if you believe you can't, then you are right in both cases"
(Henry Ford)

Following this quote, we can see that once you take control of your mind and tell it that we can do this, then all that's left is to go out and do it. This quote also makes you independent of the situation and the people around you, so only you and your will matter in any situation.

7. "Action is not only the result of motivation, but also its cause"
(Mark Manson)

All our life we ​​wait for something to motivate us, and then we start our movement. But try to start with what you have. You can fail or succeed, but that's not the point, it's about learning something and believing that you have what it takes to succeed. When you start doing something, opportunities start to appear and life doesn't feel so tight anymore.

8. “One day you will wake up, but there will be no more time to do what you always wanted to do. Do it now."
(Paulo Coelho)

We are obsessed with the idea of ​​the right time for everything. So obsessed that our whole life passes us by, and we are still waiting for that right time that never really comes - you know why? After all, the right time you are waiting for does not really exist.

You may think that this is when I will have money; when I grow up; when I'm educated enough, smart enough, but what about the time you're wasting waiting for the right time, which may never come. So now is the time. Start with where you are and what you have, and with a positive attitude, you are sure to go a long way. But if you wait, it will never happen.

9. "Personality begins where comparison ends"
(Karl Lagerfeld)

Especially in adolescence, we are obsessed with being better than the other person in almost every way - looks, grades, and everything that can be compared. This is because we have not yet developed our personality.

Personality is knowing yourself and then accepting who you are without indulging yourself in unfair comparisons. Let's be honest, you can never be the person you compare yourself to - but you can always be yourself. Comparison is just another form of insulting yourself, because what works well for the other person may not work for you, but when you compare yourself, you are actually insulting yourself. So start discovering who you are and then embrace who you are and play to your strengths.

10. "Always remember that you are absolutely unique - just like everyone else."
(Margaret Mead)

Each of us is gifted with something, and this is what Margaret is trying to tell us - we are all unique. The second phase of this quote perfectly neutralizes the first, as we not only see ourselves as unique, but we also see uniqueness and power in other people. And only when we focus our efforts on developing the strengths of our personality and helping others, our world will become even better.

11. "Success is the ability to move from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm"
(Winston Churchill)

To those who take this quote literally, it may seem silly - from failure to failure, where is success in that? But this is a wise statement. Whatever you try to do will bring you sweet fruit in the end, but most of us will never achieve it.

It's really heartbreaking when someone gives up and doesn't try to win. So keep going and maybe next time you will come out victorious. And every time you feel like giving up, try to remember why you started it.

12. "It's not the load that breaks you, it's the way you carry it"
( Lou Holtz )

All our struggle seems to us monumental, the solutions of which cannot be offered. Because we always live with our own problems, they overwhelm us while others seem easier to deal with.

A new perspective, a new idea, or at least an indifference to "it doesn't matter" is all that is needed. So be smart about your problems and think about what you could offer if your friend had the same problems.

13. "Once you choose hope, anything is possible"
(Christopher Reeve)

If you think about it, hope is what keeps us alive. Without it, we wouldn't even bother to live. But hope in times of despair is indeed vital. When we hit bottom or fail, our whole life seems to stop and we lose it.

However, starting with hope and continuing to live with it is the ultimate path to success. Our lives move up and down, and we stumble along with it, but hope is the strong string that we hold on to and we can succeed and win.

14. "Everything you can imagine is real"
(Pablo Picasso)

Growing up, our minds glow with endless ideas and dreams. The passion we feel when we dream makes the impossible possible. But the more we get older, the more we focus on our ever-growing problems and exacerbate them.

In the end, there comes a time when we lose the ability to dream big or think about achievements, and with it the faith in their realization. But, as Picasso says, we can bring our imagination to life. Our mind is capable of doing anything if it has a thought or a picture about it.
