We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the illusion of time, in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infintesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future. We have no present. Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation. We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience than present experience. We are therefore out of touch with reality. We confuse the world as talked about, described, and measured with the world which actually is. We are sick with a fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas.

When using the Law of Attraction to manifest one's more desired reality, it is not simply enough to shift one's conscious thoughts

o not preoccupy yourself with wants or expectations. The world won't abide by the standards, you set in any case, whether you set them too low or too high. It will break them every time for the simple fact that our true essence has no desire, hope or expectation for anything. It has no selfish inclinations of any kind. Everything, it experiences, is a passing phase, not its real identity.
Avina Celeste
Expect good to happen in your day and you'll find that good things start to happen.
Billy Connolly
Marriage is a wonderful invention; but then again so is a bicycle repair kit.
Brian Tracy
Positive expectations are the mark of the superior personality.
Chuck Palahniuk
What makes earth feel like hell is our expectation that it should feel like heaven.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
Fairness is not something to which we are entitled. Rather, it is something for which we hope.
Criss Jami
It is a healthy approach not to expect persons to turn out precisely how you would have wished.
Criss Jami
No matter how kind you are, always expect a few imbeciles.
Dada Bhagwan
Where our own mind doesn't listen to us, how can other's minds follow what we say? One should not have such expectation at all.
Dada Bhagwan
The world believes 'asakti' [infatuation, attraction of atoms] to be love and (then) become confused. Woman has some work from men and men has some work from women. All this has arisen because of work (expectations). If work does not get completed, all within will complain and form an attack. Not for even a second has anyone become one's own. Only the Gnani Purush [the enlightened one] will become yours. That is why the Lord has said, 'Every living being is an orphan'.
Dada Bhagwan
The worldly life is constantly ablaze. To keep expectation, that it will extinguish, is wrong. So then we too should say to it, 'you can keep on burning!
Francine Rivers
Mara, that's the life I want to give you. That's what I'm offering you. I want to fill you life with color and warmth. I want to fill it with light. Give me a chance
Fulton J. Sheen
Many married women who have deliberately spurned the hour of childbearing are unhappy and frustrated. They never discovered the joys of marriage because they refused to surrender to the obligation of their state. In saving themselves, they lost themselves!
Germany Kent
The only way you're going to reach places you've never gone is if you trust God's direction to do things you've never done.
Jodi Picoult
Everyone knew that if you divided reality by expectation, you got a happiness quotient. But when you invert the equation - expectation divided by reality - you didn't get the opposite of happiness. What you got, Lewis realized, was hope.
Jodi Picoult
When you showed someone how you felt, it was fresh and honest. When you told someone how you felt, there might be nothing behind the words but habit or expectation.
John Adams
It was the general opinion of ancient nations, that the divinity alone was adequate to the important office of giving laws to men... and modern nations, in the consecrations of kings, and in several superstitious chimeras of divine rights in princes and nobles, are nearly unanimous in preserving remnants of it... Is the jealousy of power, and the envy of superiority, so strong in all men, that no considerations of public or private utility are sufficient to engage their submission to rules for their own happiness? Or is the disposition to imposture so prevalent in men of experience, that their private views of ambition and avarice can be accomplished only by artifice?

Kilroy J. Oldster
We write, edit, and rewrite the story of our own life employing descriptive words, metaphors, and symbols. Our lives are full of symbols including those supplied by nature and religion, which touch upon the mystical and spiritual aspects of life. Symbols inspire enduring hope by formulating idealist expectations.
Kilroy J. Oldster
We measure time through a mental framework trussed with two major stakes: memory and expectation. Memory is that spottiness that takes place behind the eyes: memory takes place in the cloistered theater that houses diffused still pictures. We file mental pictures that encapsulate our prior life into mental shelves for a wayward librarian to cull through and forward select recollection to the recall center whenever summoned. Expectations arise from thoughtful consideration of our future prospects in life.
Lailah Gifty Akita
Hope is expectant longing.

Life's under no obligation to give us what we expect.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Most sane human beings who are over the age of six usually act or react not as per what they genuinely feel or really think but in accordance with the expectations of those around them.
Munia Khan
It doesn't matter how green a blade of grass is expected to be, when it's already smashed beneath the feet.
Parul Wadhwa
I am sick and tired of coming good on expectations.
Paulo Coelho
When we set out on the path, we always have a fairly clear idea of what we hope to find. Women are generally seeking their Soul Mate, and men looking for Power. Neither party is really interested in learning. They simply want to reach the thing they have set as their goal.
Philip Larkin
Never such innocence,Never before or since,As changed itself to pastWithout a word--the menLeaving the gardens tidy,The thousands of marriagesLasting a little while longer:Never such innocence again.
Po Bronson
If you want to give yourself a fair chance to succeed, never expect too much too soon
Ralph Ellison
I was no longer afraid. Not of important men, not of trustees and such; for knowing now that there was nothing which I could expect from them, there was no reason to be afraid.
Roberta Gellis
It is too late for me to learn your wisdom in this matter. From the time I knew aught, I have lived with a knight and his lady whose love lit and warmed the dark hall on winter's nights. Madam, my example comes not from any book of romance. My grandparents walked and breathed; they kissed and quarreled. This I must have, and I will seek it with the point of my knife in a bad husband's heart if I can find it no other way.
Sanhita Baruah
People are going to break promises, and they will have every right to till the point you realize that you don't change plans based on someone else's words.
Sri Chinmoy
Peace beginsWhen expectation ends.
Steven Magee
I have every expectation that cancer will become known as the disease of human evolution trying and failing to adapt to a significantly changed environment.

Expectations hurt, be it sorry, be it thank you.
