Those reflective moments for me usually come from loneliness and separation from people. — Soccer Mommy

This is love. — Eckhart Tolle

I was born abroad, but my parents were both English.

I grew up with a special-needs brother, and the separation from other kids is so extreme. We’ve got to break down those barriers. — Hannah Teter

Separation and devolution are two completely different concepts which cannot be mixed together. One is not a stop on the way to the other. — Johann Lamont

The governments of south Sudan must make sure that everybody will get a nationality – that nobody will become stateless because of this separation. — Antonio Guterres

I believe in a strong two-party system, and when one party is losing so spectacularly, it emboldens the other party to overreach and become a cartoon of itself, invoking awful things like – I’m just spit-balling here – child separation policies and trade wars. — S.E. Cupp

It’s hard to say goodbye to the streets. It’s all how you do it. You can pass by and say, ‘What’s happening?’ and keep it moving, but it’s a certain element that’ll never be able to roll with you once you get to this level, because that’s the separation of it all. — Snoop Dogg

I’ve been a visual artist my entire life, so translating music to imagery has always come naturally to me. Tycho is an audio-visual project in a lot of ways, so I don’t see a real separation between the visual and musical aspects; they are both just components of a larger vision. — Tycho

In the separation of the human species from nature, life goes awry. — Michael Frome

We were environmentalists of the Teddy Roosevelt theory. We believed in separation of church and state. We believed in the independence of the Supreme Court not being subject to politicians. — Pete McCloskey

Segregation is that which is forced upon an inferior by a superior. Separation is done voluntarily by two equals. — Malcolm X

There is no separation between the black community and the LGBT community. As a black, queer woman myself, I often have to assert, right, that it’s not one or the other but that I am all of these things. — Alicia Garza

It’s one of the hardest things in the world to sustain a monogamous relationship for many years. People out there who have been with their partners for 30 years or more – I salute you. But it’s just as hard to admit something isn’t working and then try to manage a civilised separation as best as you can. — John Niven

Quite often you hear people say, ‘What about separation of church and state?’ There is no such thing. — Dan Severson

It was the separation of powers upon which the framers placed their hopes for the preservation of the people’s liberties. Despite this heritage, the congress has been in too many cases more than willing to walk away from its constitutional powers. — Robert Byrd

What we should care about is health – reduction of morbidity and mortality. Too often, we instead pay attention to whether something is ‘normal.’ A hospital may spend several million dollars separating a pair of conjoined twins, even though that separation is likely to leave them worse off. — Alice Dreger

The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe with blood for centuries. — James Madison

If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword. — Andrew Jackson

Fear, separation, hate and anger come from the wrong view that you and the Earth are two separate entities, the Earth is only the environment. You are in the centre and you want to do something for the Earth in order for you to survive. That is a dualistic way of seeing. — Thich Nhat Hanh

I have never met a happy atheist. I believe in separation of church and state, but I think we have gone so far over in the other direction of separating church and state. — Dixie Carter

In the European tradition, rivers are seen as divisions between peoples. But in the Aboriginal tradition, rivers are seen as the glue, the highway, the linkage between people, not the separation. And that’s the history of Canada: our rivers and lakes were our highways. — John Ralston Saul

I had been taught that the separation between religion and politics happened in the Enlightenment. But there were people who tried to create a secular relationship to government 2,000 years ago, and those people were the Jews. — Elaine Pagels

Usually, it is not my habit to address religious issues on the floor. I strongly believe in a person’s right to religious freedom, as well as the separation of church and state. — Alcee Hastings

Your work is a separate thing from you. You are this person who has your friends and your life, and you have to see the separation. If you see the separation between your work and yourself it’s so much easier. — Julie Brown

I think people have had the understanding for many years that whatever happens with the separation of parents, that the kids automatically go to the mother. The fathers don’t know their rights. — Dwyane Wade

I’m not on Twitter, and I don’t read the papers day to day, so I am somewhat protected. There’s this weird separation between your private and public persona. — Samantha Cameron

The very idea that you could have separation between mosque and state from Islam’s perspective is the imposition on them of Christian practice. Islam doesn’t really have a place for state. They are a universalistic faith like Christianity, but they think there is no country that bounds Islam. — Stanley Hauerwas

I’ve spent the last year and a half going through a very public separation, hiding in hotel lobbies. — Phil Collins

I think we suffer from certain alienation. We live on this planet, but we somehow have an idea that we’re elevated from it, that we’re not nature. We’re a creature that manages nature and is superior and does whatever it wants. That creates a separation between humanity and the rest of the planet. — Yossi Ghinsberg

Under the doctrine of separation of powers, the manner in which the president personally exercises his assigned executive powers is not subject to questioning by another branch of government. — Richard M. Nixon

Whenever a separation is made between liberty and justice, neither, in my opinion, is safe. — Edmund Burke

The Constitution remains brilliant in its overall design and sound with respect to the Bill of Rights and the separation of powers. But there are numerous archaic provisions that inhibit constructive change and adaptation. These constitutional bits affect the daily life of the republic and every citizen in it. — Larry J. Sabato

At first, there was a separation of clubs and sketch comedy. Now there’s all kinds of comedy, making us one big happy family. — Jen Kirkman

It’s dope to be an artist and to have that wall of separation, but also I feel like social media is there for what it’s there for. I have a group chat with about 40 fans who I communicate with on the regular. — 6lack

The ‘niche’ effect of charter schools guarantees a swift and vicious deepening of class and racial separation. — Jonathan Kozol

I would bring a $100 bill, and I would say, ‘Alright, first person’ – and everybody has their iPhone – and I would say, ‘First person to find in the Constitution the phrase ‘separation of church and state’ gets this $100 bill’… And you know what – and everybody knows that, right? – that phrase isn’t in the U.S. Constitution. It’s nowhere. — Jeffrey C. Mateer

I believe in the separation of church and state, but I do not believe in the separation of politics from religion. — Rick Warren

Separation, I think, in an early-stage company or a startup environment is not a good thing. You need to basically live and breathe the entire environment. — Shervin Pishevar

The majesty of the American Jewish experience is in its success marrying its unique Jewish identity with the larger, liberal values of the United States. There is no need anymore to choose between assimilation and separation. We are accepted as equals. — Edgar Bronfman, Sr.

I’m very lucky, I had a very amicable separation and very amicable divorce, but it was still horrendous. — Ben Miller

Onstage, there’s a separation between character and audience; onscreen, you can go to a deeper place. — Phyllida Lloyd

The act of exploring what the men are, and moreover the separation of the good from the evil, is visitation; and the good are then removed, and the evil are left behind. — Emanuel Swedenborg

I don’t want there to be this separation between the rich and poor. I may be part of the three percent because I’ve been fortunate and done well for myself, but I will never forget about the 97 percent. That was me growing up. I was so poor I dreamt about being just ‘regular poor,’ not ‘poor, poor.’ — Marlon Wayans

You know, Scooter’s going to do the first separation burn; I’m going to do the second separation burn. — Duane G. Carey

True self is non-self, the awareness that the self is made only of non-self elements. There’s no separation between self and other, and everything is interconnected. Once you are aware of that you are no longer caught in the idea that you are a separate entity. — Thich Nhat Hanh

The Obama administration demonstrated time and again a disturbing willingness to bypass the separation of powers and disregard Congress as a Constitutional watchdog. — Luther Strange

I’d like to have a neck. Everyone else has a neck, but I never got one; I don’t know what happened. I’m not asking for much: just some sort of separation between my head and my body would be great. — Ben Miller

Our feelings of separation from God will diminish as we become more childlike before Him. That is not easy in a world where the opinions of other human beings can have such an effect on our motives. But it will help us recognize this truth: God is close to us and aware of us and never hides from His faithful children. — Henry B. Eyring

The quarterback has to get rid of the ball quickly, so there’s not a lot of time to make moves to gain separation. — John Madden

I’ve moved around so much my whole life, and I’ve gotten so used to being the Other in situations – the foreigner, the outsider. The first time I’ve ever felt like there was no separation between me and the other elements was in music. — Abigail Washburn

The separation of audience into tribes preferring to reinforce their own views with media of similar ideological stripe makes true debate impossible. — Richard Edelman

For some Chicago expats, food is the medicine that blunts the pain of separation. — Mary Schmich

Separation is very important to me. I don’t strive to be a celebrity. My music has nothing to do with me at the end of the day. Once it’s made and it’s purchased, it belongs to whoever. — Vince Staples

We must embrace unity, not separation – sharing, go back to small, caring communities. Unity, not separation, is what has to happen. — Genesis P-Orridge

I believed what my father taught me about the separation of church and state, so when I was President I never invited Billy Graham to have services in the White House because I didn’t think that was appropriate. He was injured a little bit, until I explained it to him. — Jimmy Carter

There’s no question that how Johannesburg operates is what made me interested in the idea of wealth discrepancy. ‘Elysium’ could be a metaphor for just Jo’burg, but it’s also a metaphor for the Third World and the First World. And in science fiction, separation of wealth is a really interesting idea to mess with. — Neill Blomkamp

I don’t believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute. The idea that the church can have no influence or no involvement in the operation of the state is absolutely antithetical to the objectives and vision of our country. — Rick Santorum

There’s no separation anymore between who I am and what I create. — Kerli

I disagree strongly with the concept of separation of church and state. It was not written into the Constitution. — Ken Buck

When I grew up, there was one music: rock n’ roll. Somewhere along the line, there was a separation. I don’t know why it happened, but it did happen. — Clarence Clemons

Despite our separation, he always managed to find small ways to remind me that there are gentlemen in the world, even when I was surrounded by just the opposite. — Amanda Lindhout

It is written that there shall be a separation, and the sheep shall be separated from the goats. The other preachers have the sheep; I have the goats. And I have a few sheep among my goats, but they are very ragged. — Sojourner Truth

A hospital may spend several million dollars separating a pair of conjoined twins even though that separation is likely to leave them worse off. — Alice Dreger

The tenet of the separation of church and state is an unconstitutional doctrine. — Sharron Angle

The false separation between living and giving must end. — Simon Mainwaring

Possibly the defining development of postmodern politics – naturally, an American one – is the separation of personality from ideology. If you are likeable, or at least not disagreeable, if you can strike a personal bond with the electorate, if you reassure rather than disrupt, it doesn’t really matter what you stand for. — Michael Wolff

There is nothing that I shudder at more than the idea of a separation of the Union. Should such an event ever happen, which I fervently pray God to avert, from that date I view our liberty gone. — Andrew Jackson

Together, Apple and Walmart represent the intense separation of American life into blue and red, rich and poor, overpriced and undersold, hyperconnected and left behind. — George Packer

The history of screenwriting – of what we do – is more than 100 years old. It’s thousands of years old, going back to Sophocles and Euripedes. I believe the only – the only – separation for being a dramatist is reading drama. — John Logan

To try to turn Iraq into a liberal democracy is absolutely crazy. Islam has no understanding of the separation between church and state because they don’t understand Islam to be a church. — Stanley Hauerwas

Two prisoners whose cells adjoin communicate with each other by knocking on the wall. The wall is the thing which separates them but is also their means of communication. It is the same with us and God. Every separation is a link. — Simone Weil

How do I control my emotions? How do I stop getting angry so often, or how do I stop being sad? And I think there’s a really important distinction to understand is that you can’t completely control your emotions. What you control is your reaction to your own emotions. And a lot of people don’t ever make that separation for what goes on with them. — Mark Manson

There is no reason to have problems between country and country, between government and government, when there is a separation of powers. — Ricardo Lagos

LA can be a very open and accepting creative environment. But it is important, because there is this odd separation here, it is important to make your kids mindful of other people and other people’s plight. — Ryan Phillippe

Some people suggest that the problem is the separation of powers. If you had a parliamentary system, the struggle for power would not result in such complex peace treaties that empower so many different people to pursue so many contradictory aims. — James Q. Wilson

There’s no question that a public official of either party can take it too far, and it’s up to the candidate to be able to strike that balance, the balance that is the separation of church and state. The way I’ve always looked at this is that every candidate has a right to talk as much or as little about their faith as they deem appropriate. — Bob Casey, Jr.

The question that I can’t shake – it’s this question that keeps coming up for me – is What does the shared home of the future look like? People are sharing homes at a rate that no one ever predicted, but residences and homes weren’t designed for it. They were designed around ideas of privacy and separation. — Joe Gebbia

Usually, there is no equivalent of air traffic control at sea. Some busy areas operate ‘traffic separation schemes,’ but mostly, ships are treated like cars on roads where there are rules and codes of behavior, and successful, accident-free outcomes depend on everyone respecting them. As on roads, this doesn’t always work. — Rose George

The artificial separation of politics and culture is nowhere more pronounced than in the discourse of foreign policy and international affairs. — Ellen Willis

I think there’s a natural chemistry between us as friends; and there’s really no separation between the rapport that we feel when we’re in conversation and when we’re playing music, it’s one in the same. — Benny Green

After the separation of children from families seeking to join the United States was embraced as the official policy of our government, we should ask ourselves what story we will tell. President Trump’s story is one of cruelty – that we may do something unfathomable to deter families from coming to America. — Ben Rhodes

To be clear, I abhor the separation wall. It is an eyesore in itself and makes tangible the failed diplomacy and cruel short-sightedness that causes such misery in the region. No Palestinian can see that wall and not wonder if the Israelis mean it to stay there forever, a constant reminder of what they never intend to change. — Howard Jacobson

I always say that I’m an artist who works with pictures and words, so I think that the different aspects of my activity, whether it’s writing criticism, or doing visual work that incorporates writing, or teaching, or curating, is all of a single cloth, and I don’t make any separation in terms of those practices. — Barbara Kruger

Israel fits into the zeitgeist of our era. It is true that there are demographic threats to its existence. That is why a separation from the Palestinians is a compelling imperative. — Ehud Barak

And one of the frustrating parts, but it’s an inherent part of our democracy, is we have separation of powers. — George Pataki

I think everyone should – can share whatever they wish when their heart is touched and they want to spread more positivity rather than segregation and separation in this world. — Farrah Abraham

I didn’t want to have to deal with having any moniker or separation between the self that I see and know myself as. — Mos Def

Yes, the meeting of dear friends atones for the regret of separation; and like it so much enhances affection, that after absence one wonders how one has been able to stay away from them so long. — Marguerite Gardiner

Secular thinkers have a separation between thinking and doing. They don’t have a grasp of the balance sheet. The doers are selling us potted plants and pizzas while the thinkers are a little bit unworldly. Religions both think and do. — Alain de Botton

I rise in support of the separation of powers as established by our Founding Fathers in the Constitution. The Constitution clearly delegates the power to deal with criminal matters, like the use of drugs, to the States. — Dana Rohrabacher

I think there ought to be a strict separation or wall built between our religious faith and our practice of political authority in office. I don’t think the President of the United States should extoll Christianity if he happens to be a Christian at the expense of Judaism, Islam or other faiths. — Jimmy Carter

What if cities embraced a culture of sharing? I see a future of shared cities that bring us community and connection instead of isolation and separation. — Joe Gebbia

I think my legacy will be in what most people don’t like about me: my style – the separation between judge and lawyers, judge and politics, the real independence of the judiciary from the executive, from the legislative, from money. I’m criticized in Brazil because of that. In the end, I hope to prevail. — Joaquim Barbosa

Architects have created this fake separation between creation and execution. You can see it in architecture schools, where the students look down on going to contracts classes. — Joshua Prince-Ramus

Look, you’re on the set for six months, with someone who’s rooting to be attracted to you, and you’re rooting to be attracted to them. I never understood the separation of work and life in that situation. But the time I spent with Megan was our own thing. — Shia LaBeouf

Separation penetrates the disappearing person like a pigment and steeps him in gentle radiance. — Boy George

While we have a Constitution that is very strong in the sense that we are not gonna have a religion that’s sanctioned by the government, it doesn’t mean that we need to have a separation between government and religion. — Ken Buck

The assertion that ‘all men are created equal’ was of no practical use in effecting our separation from Great Britain and it was placed in the Declaration not for that, but for future use. — Abraham Lincoln

I think the root of minor problems is separation from a belief system of interconnectedness and compassion and oneness, so when we multiply that over and over again, it turns into lies and chaos and terrorism. — Gabrielle Bernstein

I’ve been married to the same man – even after the separation – longer than most people in this business. I’m sick to death of people mentioning it. — Samantha Bond

The Declaration of Independence pronounced the irrevocable decree of political separation, between the United States and their people on the one part, and the British king, government, and nation on the other. — John Quincy Adams

It doesn’t say anywhere in the Constitution this idea of the separation of church and state. — Sean Hannity

People don’t seem to understand that the separation of powers is not about the power of these branches; it’s there to protect individual liberty – it’s there to protect us from the concentration of power. — Jonathan Turley

The separation of church and state is a source of strength, but the conscience of our nation does not call for separation between men of state and faith in the Supreme Being. — Lyndon B. Johnson

There is no such thing as ‘separation of church and state.’ Reporters continue to promote this fallacy and scare Christians out of standing up for their beliefs. — Ken Ham
