“It's saying no. That's your first hint that something's alive. It says no. That's how you know a baby is starting to turn into a person. They run around saying no all day, throwing their aliveness at everything to see what it'll stick to. You can't say no if you don't have desires and opinions and wants of your own. You wouldn't even want to. No is the heart of thinking.”

“Yes no yes no yes no?
Red blue?
Yes red, no blue?
No red, yes no?
In out, up down?
Do don't, can can't?
Choices sit on the shelf life
New shoes in a shoe shop.
If the in crowd are squeezing into a must-have shoe
And the one pair left are too tiny for you
Don't feel compelled into choosing them
If you're really a size 9, buy that size.
While everyone else
Hobbles round with sore feet
Your choices should feel comfortable
Or they aren't your choices at all.
Why limp when you can sprint?”
David Baird, Fiesta of Happiness: Be True to Yourself

Jodi Picoult, Change of Heart

“But no one ever said yes to make sex consensual. You took hints from body language, from the way two people came together. Why...didn't a shake of the head or a hand pushing hard against a chest speak just as loudly? Why did you have to actually say the word no for it to be rape?”
Jodi Picoult, The Tenth Circle

Enock Maregesi
“Sina jinsi. Nguzo ya maisha yangu ni historia ya maisha yangu. Historia ya maisha yangu ni urithi wa watu waliojifunza kusema hapana kwa ndiyo nyingi – waliojitolea vitu vingi katika maisha yao kunifikisha hapa nilipo leo – walionifundisha falsafa ya kushindwa si hiari. Siri ya mafanikio yangu ni kujitahidi kwa kadiri ya uwezo wangu wote; au 'pushing the envelope' kwa lugha ya kigeni.”
Enock Maregesi

William Ury
“The Power of a Positive No describes how to say No when it is vital to stand up and protect your core interests and values. It is not just about how to say No, however, but about how to do so in a respectful and constructive manner that can potentially lead to agreement. As its subtitle indicates, it is about how to say No and still get to Yes.”
William Ury, Getting Past No: Negotiating in Difficult Situations

“Create pull in your relationships, push has no power!”

Dash Shaw
“Dad believes that negative criticism is inherently more truthful and constructive than positive criticism. He also believes that every "No" spoken gives a future "Yes" more power and credibility. He's a master at finding the tone, pitch, and demeanor to say "Yes" so that it obviously means a "No." It's an art form. There are a million dead "No"s in that monstrous, distant, future "Yes." Even though it's a million miles away, I can always see it from where I am.”
Dash Shaw, Doctors

But refusal only works on other people, on fate it has no effect.”
Damon Galgut, The Promise

Suze Orman
“It takes more power to say no out of love than to say yes out of weakness. This notion is at the very heart of establishing a healthy relationship with your money.”
Suze Orman, Women & Money: Owning the Power to Control Your Destiny

“When people are in love, the whole universe seems miraculous to them. There is zero place for hate or any negativity in this phase. I wish to God that people may stay throughout in this phase where they can very easily conquer the struggles & challenges.

In opposite, when people face rejection in love, they must understand the miracle of love. They must feel the energy that repelled by other heart. They must not be disappointed by the “No”. It’s hard & almost impossible to find next opportunity for love someone. So be the source of love which is even better than the people who are in love, I swear.”
Sonal Takalkar
