Criss Jami quotes (showing 1-30 of 783)

“To say that one waits a lifetime for his soulmate to come around is a paradox. People eventually get sick of waiting, take a chance on someone, and by the art of commitment become soulmates, which takes a lifetime to perfect.”
Criss Jami, Venus in Arms
“Just because something isn't a lie does not mean that it isn't deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.”
Criss Jami
“Grudges are for those who insist that they are owed something; forgiveness, however, is for those who are substantial enough to move on.”
Criss Jami, Salomé: In Every Inch In Every Mile
“To share your weakness is to make yourself vulnerable; to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength.”
Criss Jami
“The biggest challenge after success is shutting up about it.”
Criss Jami
“Never hide things from hardcore thinkers. They get more aggravated, more provoked by confusion than the most painful truths.”
Criss Jami
“Listen to God with a broken heart. He is not only the doctor who mends it, but also the father who wipes away the tears.”
Criss Jami
“Closed in a room, my imagination becomes the universe, and the rest of the world is missing out.”
Criss Jami, Diotima, Battery, Electric Personality
“If a man cannot understand the beauty of life, it is probably because life never understood the beauty in him.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy
“Telling an introvert to go to a party is like telling a saint to go to Hell.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy
“The only thing more frustrating than slanderers is those foolish enough to listen to them.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy
“Man is not, by nature, deserving of all that he wants. When we think that we are automatically entitled to something, that is when we start walking all over others to get it.”
Criss Jami, Diotima, Battery, Electric Personality
“As long as I am breathing, in my eyes, I am just beginning.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy
“When you're the only sane person, you look like the only insane person.”
Criss Jami, Diotima, Battery, Electric Personality
“If love is blind, then maybe a blind person that loves has a greater understanding of it.”
Criss Jami, Salomé: In Every Inch In Every Mile
“True rebels hate their own rebellion. They know by experience that it is not a cool and glamorous lifestyle; it takes a courageous fool to say things that have not been said and to do things that have not been done.”
Criss Jami, Venus in Arms
“If you build the guts to do something, anything, then you better save enough to face the consequences.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy
“At first, they'll only dislike what you say, but the more correct you start sounding the more they'll dislike you.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy
“I would rather a romantic relationship turn into contempt than turn into apathy. The passion in the extremities make it appear as though it once meant something. We grow from hot or cold, but lukewarm is the biggest insult.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy
“A lonely day is God's way of saying that he wants to spend some quality time with you.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy
“When a man is penalized for honesty he learns to lie.”
Criss Jami, Salomé: In Every Inch In Every Mile
“It often occurs that pride and selfishness are muddled with strength and independence. They are neither equal nor similar; in fact, they are polar opposites. A coward may be so cowardly that he masks his weakness with some false personification of power. He is afraid to love and to be loved because love tends to strip bare all emotional barricades. Without love, strength and independence are prone to losing every bit of their worth; they become nothing more than a fearful, intimidated, empty tent lost somewhere in the desert of self.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy
“Persistence. Perfection. Patience. Power. Prioritize your passion. It keeps you sane.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy
“When you're socially awkward, you're isolated more than usual, and when you're isolated more than usual, your creativity is less compromised by what has already been said and done. All your hope in life starts to depend on your craft, so you try to perfect it. One reason I stay isolated more than the average person is to keep my creativity as fierce as possible. Being the odd one out may have its temporary disadvantages, but more importantly, it has its permanent advantages.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy
“There are two circumstances that lead to arrogance: one is when you're wrong and you can't face it; the other is when you're right and nobody else can face it.”
Criss Jami, Diotima, Battery, Electric Personality
“When good people consider you the bad guy, you develop a heart to help the bad ones. You actually understand them.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy
“Like crying wolf, if you keep looking for sympathy as a justification for your actions, you will someday be left standing alone when you really need help.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy
“The harder you fall, the heavier your heart; the heavier your heart, the stronger you climb; the stronger you climb, the higher your pedestal.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy
“Good works is giving to the poor and the helpless, but divine works is showing them their worth to the One who matters.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy
“Everyone has their own ways of expression. I believe we all have a lot to say, but finding ways to say it is more than half the battle.”
Criss Jami, Salomé: In Every Inch In Every Mile
