He prays well who is so absorbed with God that he does not know he is praying. (Quote by - Sales, Fran ois De)

Like Confucius of old, I am so absorbed in the wonder of the earth and the life upon it, that I cannot think of heaven and the angels. (Quote by - Pearl Buck)

Every moment there is a possibility to be total. Whatsoever you are doing, be absorbed in it so utterly that the mind thinks nothing, is just there, is just a presence. And more and more totality will be coming. And the taste of totality will make you more and more capable of being total. And try to see when you are not total. Those are the moments which have to be dropped slowly, slowly. When you are not total, whenever you are in the head--thinking, brooding, calculating, cunning, clever--you are not total. Slowly, slowly slip out of those moments. It is just an old habit. Habits die hard. But they die certainly--if one persists, they die. (Quote by - Osho)

The city of Calera has absorbed the increase of gas prices to help keep costs low for its citizens. (Quote by - Joe Phillips)

The courses of theVictory were absorbed into the main, then her topsails went, and then her top-gallants. She was now no more than a dead fl s wing on a sheet of spide s web; and even this fragment diminished. Anne could hardly bear to see the end, and yet she resolved not to flinch. The admira s flag sank behind the watery line, and in a minute the very trunk of the last main-mast stole away. The Victory was gone. (Quote by - Thomas Hardy)

Good stories flow like honey. Bad stories stick in the craw. A bad story? One that cannot be absorbed on the first time of reading. (Quote by - Arthur Christiansen)

Never would it occur to a child that a sheep, a pig, a cow or a chicken was good to eat, while, like Milton's Adam, he would eagerly make a meal off fruits, nuts, thyme, mint, peas and broad beans which penetrate further and stimulate not only the appetite but other vague and deep nostalgias. We are closer to the Vegetable Kingdom than we know; is it not for man alone that mint, thyme, sage, and rosemary exhale crush me and eat me! -- for us that opium poppy, coffee-berry, tea-plant and vine perfect themselves? Their aim is to be absorbed by us, even if it can only be achieved by attaching themselves to roast mutton. (Quote by - Cyril Connolly)

The fact is that a person does not wish to purge himself of the world, as it first appeared, but of his own difference from society. If he is thoroughly absorbed into society with no conflicts, then he himself admits everything is in order; if not, then he must attend to the matter as speedily as possible; and if necessary he will clean himself away. So dependent is he on the outside world for his own definition, and does not realize it. (Quote by - Christian Enzensberger)

We just kept making mistakes, we were a shade off our game and put ourselves under pressure with dropped passes. We looked a bit anxious and the quality of the Crusaders players absorbed that. (Quote by - Anne Braden)

Many Christians still at bottom look upon God as one of the most selfish, self-absorbed Beings in the universe, far more selfish than they could think it right to be themselves, intent only upon His own honor and glory, looking out continually that His own rights are never trampled on; and so absorbed in thoughts of Himself and of His own righteousness, as to have no love or pity to spare for the poor sinners who have offended Him. (Quote by - Hannah Whitall Smith)

This finding indicates that estrogen absorbed through (an estrogen receptor) has a clear cancer preventing effect in the colon. (Quote by - Barbara Mann)

You try not to let it change you or get too absorbed in it, but it's a lot of fun, just winning, playing basketball, getting on that court. It's just a lot of fun. (Quote by - Elton Brand)

Music has always been transnational; people pick up whatever interests them, and certainly a lot of classical music has absorbed influences from all over the world. (Quote by - Yo-Yo Ma)

Unity, not uniformity, must be our aim. We attain unity only through variety. Differences must be integrated, not annihilated, not absorbed. (Quote by - Mary Parker Follett)

You need a balance in life between dealing with what`s going on inside and not being so absorbed in yourself that it takes over. (Quote by - Nigella Lawson)
