    David Deida
  • Speak and live in simple sentences. Bring closure — put a period to — those experiences that you don’t want to carry on forever and ever. Use commas in those places where you’re still growing… and use exclamation points at the end of every lesson.

    Iyanla Vanzant
  • Avoiding problems doesn’t make them go away – you think it does, but it really doesn’t. They’re just postponed. Those problems just stay inside your subconscious and brew until your body gets to a point where it’s had enough and decides to release some of the stress itself. That’s what an anxiety attack is! It happens when you don’t know how to vent your frustration, fears, stress, sadness, madness, whatever it is that bothers you, the things you should be confronting and getting closure with. If you don’t confront these things and deal with them, your body does it for you.

    Sully Erna
  • Life just doesn’t care about our aspirations, or sadness. It’s often random, and it’s often stupid and it’s often completely unexpected, and the closures and the epiphanies and revelations we end up receiving from life, begrudgingly, rarely turn out to be the ones we thought.

    Khaled Hosseini
  • I know what it feels like to be bruised; I know what it feels like to carry things around with you that never totally heal. There’s closure and then there’s stuff that’s kind of like, Well, I guess it’s going to be in the minivan forever. And you carry it with you and you continue on your journey with your minivan full of stuff, which I think most of us do.

    Elizabeth Gilbert
  • Everything is perfect. Everything is fine. The rules of life are made up. The rules only exist in your mind. Of course there may be courtesies And closures and laws to abide, But the zeal with which you play Relies on where YOU draw the line

    Jason Mraz
  • The theological virtue of hope is the patient and trustful willingness to live without closure, without resolution, and still be content and even happy because our Satisfaction is now at another level, and our Source is beyond ourselves.

    Richard Rohr
  • I think sometimes people really require the satisfaction of closure.

    Diablo Cody
  • Shift often from openness to closure.

    Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
  • And that we cannot go to space with our feet in the mud. Nor can we in fact turn ourselves into an eco-sensitive hallucinogenic-based culture on Earth unless we fuse these dichotomous opposites. It is only in a coincidencia oppositorum, a union of opposites, that does not strive for closure, that we are going to find cultural sanity. And this is the thing that the entheogens, the hallucinogens, deliver with such clarity and regularity. They raise paradox to a level of intensity that no one can evade.

    Terence McKenna
  • The bottom had arrived. She crashed against it, but it brought no sense of closure or understanding. She just lay there at the bottom looking up. She knew there must be a very tiny circle of light up there somewhere, but just now she couldn’t see it.

    Ann Brashares
  • We women have lived too much with closure: “If he notices me, if I marry him, if I get into college, if I get this work accepted, if I get this job” — there always seems to loom the possibility of something being over, settled, sweeping clear the way for contentment. This is the delusion of a passive life. When the hope for closure is abandoned, when there is an end to fantasy, adventure for women will begin.

    Carolyn Heilbrun
  • I don’t see novels ending with any real sense of closure.

    Michael Ondaatje

    Martin Amis
  • Your heart knows the truth of openness and suffers the tense lie of your closure.

    David Deida
  • The biggest regret I have about ‘Rubicon’ is that we didn’t end it. Sometimes you do these shows and you don’t have the opportunity to get closure. Stories are supposed to have a beginning, middle and an end.

    James Badge Dale
  • Everest silences you…when you come down, nothing seems worth saying, nothing at all. You find the nothingness wrapping you up, like a sound. Non-being. You can’t keep it up, of course. the world rushes in soon enough. What shuts you up is, I think, the sight you’ve had of perfection: why speak if you can’t manage perfect thoughts, perfect sentences? It feels like a betrayal of what you’ve been through. But it fades; you accept that certain compromises, closures, are required if you’re to continue.

    Salman Rushdie
  • Closure is just as delusive-it is the false hope that we can deaden our living grief.

    Stephen Grosz
  • I think this year we’ll open up 900 gross, we’re closing some, so the net count is lower, but the 900 are spread all over the place. Some of the closures are relocations, where you’re moving it to another place in the marketplace.

    Jim Cantalupo

    Ally McCoist
  • Create a need for closure.

    Chip Heath
  • My scientist friends have come up with things like ‘principles of uncertainty’ and dark holes. They’re willing to live inside imagined hypotheses and theories. But many religious folks insist on answers that are always true. We love closure, resolution and clarity, while thinking that we are people of ‘faith’! How strange that the very word ‘faith’ has come to mean its exact opposite.

    Richard Rohr
  • …the first thing you do at the end is reflect on the beginning. Maybe it’s some form of reverse closure, or just the basic human impulse toward sentimentality, or masochism, but as you stand there shell-shocked in the charred ruins of your life, your mind will invariably go back to the time when it all started. And even if you didn’t fall in love in the eighties, in your mind it will fee like the eighties, all innocent and airbrushed, with bright colors and shoulder pads and Pat Benatar or The Cure on the soundtrack.

    Jonathan Tropper
  • There is no such thing as closure, and it wouldn’t be worth having if it were available, because all it would mean is that something that was quite an important part of you had gone numb.

    Christopher Hitchens
  • Closure isn’t closure until someone’s ready to close the door.

    Jonathan Maberry

    Larry Wall
  • I still read romance, and I read suspense. I read them both. And part of it is, I like stories with strong characters, and I like stories where there’s closure at the end. And I like stories where there’s hope. That’s a kind of empowerment. I think romance novels are very empowering, and I think suspense novels are, too.

    Lisa Gardner
  • In violence there is often the quality of yearning – the yearning for completion. For closure. For that which is absent and would if present bring to fulfillment. For the body without which the wing is a useless frozen ornament. (“A Short Guide To The City”)

    Peter Straub
  • When you have a nation that is suffering collectively from a situation of injustice – of violence, of imprisonment and closure and checkpoints, from a sense of vulnerability and of hopelessness – attitudes are going to be affected by these measures.

    Hanan Ashrawi
  • I think it’s important to have closure in any relationship that ends – from a romantic relationship to a friendship. You should always have a sense of clarity at the end and know why it began and why it ended. You need that in your life to move cleanly into your next phase.

    Jennifer Aniston
  • Personally, I avoid deus ex machina like the plague – if you have to use one, it means you failed to set up the universe and the plot properly. It’s like a whodunnit where there’s no actual way for the reader to identify the perpetrator before the climactic reveal: there’s no sense of closure for the reader.

    Charles Stross
  • I will continue to work for the advancement of freedoms in Egypt and the Arab world until I drop dead… Education itself – which can and should play an important role in the apprenticeship of tolerance and respect for other people -sometimes encourages identitarian closure, or even extremist behaviour… It is therefore vital to ensure that education does not encourage rejection of other people or identitarian closure, but that on the contrary it encourages knowledge and respect for other cultures, other religions and other ways of being and living.

    Boutros Boutros-Ghali
  • The idea that murder victims’ families are best served by continuing the cycle of violence is something that I consider to be not only a lie, but criminally negligent. You lie to victims’ families when you tell them they’re going to receive closure if they participate in the process and witness the execution of a human being.

    Steve Earle
  • Sometimes people decide to write reports even though they haven’t been to Guantanamo . And so I would just suggest that people look at some of the work that’s been done by people who have been there. But that’s not to say that we will not be very glad at the day that conditions permit the closure of Guantanamo and the trying of its inhabitants or for their release.

    Condoleezza Rice
  • Nationalisation…does not in itself engender greater equality, more jobs in the regions, higher investment or industrial democracy. The public knows this perfectly well, and so do the workers who have suffered from pit closures, steel redundancies and the run-down of the railways. It is idiotic to try to bamboozle them.

    Anthony Crosland
  • There is an art to grieving. To grieve well the loss of anyone or anything–a parent, a love, a child, an era, a home, a job–is a creative act. It takes attention and patience and courage. But many of us do not know how to grieve. We were never taught, and we don’t see examples of full-bodied grieving around us. Our culture favors the fast-food model of mourning–get over it quick and get back to work; affix the bandage of “closure” and move on.

    Elizabeth Lesser
  • If a movie isn’t released, it’s one thing, but if you know it will be, it’s nice to have closure and see it come out.

    Gus Van Sant
  • A dance feels finished to me when I suddenly see this moment in the movement that feels like closure and makes me want to cry. And then I’ll realize, “Oh, that’s the end. This whole thing is working because it all led up to this moment.” It pulls all this together and it sends the correct message in a very poetic way.

    Dana Tai Soon Burgess
  • I think we need to understand what we mean when we talk about closure, we don’t mean transfer or prosecute which is what many of the critics of Guantanamo would like to see happen. When the US government talks about closing Guantanamo, they talk about moving some set of detainees to some other place where they continue to be detained without charge.

    Jennifer Daskal
  • I wanted to look at the differences between how we fought then and how we fight now, because the current lack of closure generates a state of psychological unease that is interesting to acknowledge and examine.

    Chris Cleave
  • I’m not interested in leaving it open-ended. That would just cause me frustration. I wouldn’t be satisfied. What’s really cool about Fringe, and one of the things we did do right, was that the way we chose to tell the story was that, with every season, there was a closure and then a new chapter. That allowed us to actually make the closure.

    J.H. Wyman
  • Some among the European elite have sought out confrontation with us. As a consequence, we won’t help Europe, although we could do so when it comes to the refugee question. A joint closure of borders would be essential. In this regard, the Russians would be 10 times more effective than the Europeans.

    Sergey Karaganov
  • I see that very clearly in my own state of Maine, where there are people who have been affected by mill closures, some of which have been brought about by poorly negotiated trade agreements, and they do feel marginalized and left behind. They have not been able to find new work, despite the fact that they did nothing wrong that caused them to lose their jobs. Both parties need to do a better job of reaching out to those individuals, to those hardworking families, and providing job training, matching people and giving them new skills for new jobs.

    Susan Collins
  • The fascinating thing about standard economic stories is exactly that: they assume that everybody wants that kind of closure. That all human relations are forms of exchange, because if everything is an exchange then it’s true that we’re both equals. We walk up, I give you something, you give me something, and we walk away. Or I give you something, you don’t give me something right now, and you owe me. So if we have any ongoing relationships at all, it’s because somebody is in debt.

    David Graeber
  • Oil is a tangible commodity, so there is a global market. The fact that we may need less may affect the global price because we’re big consumers: we probably take about a quarter of global demand. But if suddenly, let’s just use a crazy example, fighting in the Middle East led to the closure of the Strait of Hormuz and no oil could get out through the Strait of Hormuz, well that would affect China, India, Europe, it will affect the whole global economy. It will affect us, too, then.

    Thomas Friedman
