“Cultural objects have no notable identity outside of that which we confer upon them. Their value is entirely a product of the interaction that we have with them.”

 

Brian Eno

“When I work there are two distinct phases: the phase of pushing the work along, getting something to happen, where all the input comes from me, and phase two, where things start to combine in a way that wasn’t expected or predicted by what I supplied. Once phase two begins everything is okay, because then the work starts to dictate its own terms. It starts to get an identity which demands certain future moves. But during the first phase you often find that you come to a full stop.”

 

Brian Eno

“I am a writer and always was; being a writer is an integral part of my identity. Being published, being well regarded, is a component of that identity.”

 

Brian Aldiss

“Silent solitude makes true speech possible and personal. If I am not in touch with my own belovedness, then I cannot touch the sacredness of others. If I am estranged from myself, I am likewise a stranger to others.”

Brennan Manning

“Being the beloved is our identity, the core of our existence. It is not merely a lofty thought, an inspiring idea, or one name among many. It is the name by which God knows us and the way He relates to us”

Brennan Manning

“In human beings, love is a quality, a high-prized virtue; in God, love is His identity.”

“People have told us that accessing all of their Google stuff with one account makes life a whole lot easier. But we’ve also heard that it doesn’t make sense for your Google+ profile to be your identity in all the other Google products you use.”

 

Bradley Horowitz

“Merely presenting a driver’s license or other document based on a birth certificate is not enough for an accurate verification. Biometric verification of identity must be made and then a data base of those persons who have legal status must be checked.”

 

Bob Dole

“Some people seem to fade away but then when they are truly gone, it’s like they didn’t fade away at all.”

 

Bob Dylan

“Your backpack is a part of your identity as a student.”

 

Blake Mycoskie

“Being an evil dude: You create this false identity of who you really are and hide behind that as a means to deal with your peers and to hide behind your social awkwardness and inabilities and inadequacies.”

 

Blake Judd

“Shave your head, wear a ‘ZERO’ shirt. Take away your identity. What do you have? You still have yourself.”

 

Billy Corgan

“Royalty is my identity. Servanthood is my assignment. Intimacy with God is my life source.”

 

Bill Johnson

“Protons give an atom its identity, electrons its personality.”

Bill Bryson

“When someone who’s always been in your life is gone, it’s a stunning adjustment of your own identity.”

Bill Ayers
