Shifts within friendships happen in imperceptible increments. There is distance, then assurance. Misconjecture, caution, gradual convergence. So much depends on the respect accorded to vulnerability.Gail Jones Accorded Sayings By Gail Jones: Shifts within friendships happen in imperceptible increments. There is distance, then assurance. Misconjecture, caution, gradual
What, exactly, she had been protesting was subject to interpretation. To the poorest, her self-immolation was a response to enervating poverty. To the disabled, it reflected the lack of respect accorded the physically impaired. To the unhappily married, who were legion, it was a brave indictment of oppressive unions. Almost no one spoke of envy, a stone slab, a poorly made wall, or rubble that had fallen into rice.Katherine Boo Accorded Sayings By Katherine Boo: What, exactly, she had been protesting was subject to interpretation. To the poorest, her self-immolation
One can live with the idea of distorted truth. But their metaphysical despair came from the idea that the image didn't conceal anything at all, and that these images were in essence not images, such as an original model would have made them, but perfect simulacra, forever radiant with their
own fascination. Thus this death of the divine referential must be exorcised at all costs. One can see that the iconoclasts, whom one accuses of disdaining and negating images, were those who accorded them their true value, in contrast to the iconolaters who only saw reflections in them and were content to venerate a filigree God.
Jean Baudrillard Accorded Sayings By Jean Baudrillard: One can live with the idea of distorted truth. But their metaphysical despair came from
My life has changed in many ways, both on an economic and personal level. All major league players are accorded the respect they deserve. In Cuba, it was not that way. National team players were not respected. The treatment was not adequate.Yoenis Cespedes Accorded Sayings By Yoenis Cespedes: My life has changed in many ways, both on an economic and personal level. All
Every player should be accorded the privilege of at least one season with the Chicago Cubs. That's baseball as it should be played - in God's own sunshine. And that's really living.Alvin Dark Accorded Sayings By Alvin Dark: Every player should be accorded the privilege of at least one season with the Chicago
At the behest of the criterion of authenticity, much that was once thought to make up the very fabric of culture has come to seem of little account, mere fantasy or ritual, or downright falsification. Conversely, much that culture traditionally condemned and sought to exclude is accorded a considerable moral authority by reason of the authenticity claimed for it, for example, disorder, violence, unreason.Lionel Trilling Accorded Sayings By Lionel Trilling: At the behest of the criterion of authenticity, much that was once thought to make
Identification with one's office or title is very attractive indeed, which is precisely why so many men are nothing more than the decorum accorded to them by society. In vain would one look for a personality behind the husk. Underneath one would find a very pitiable little creature. That is why the office is so attractive: it offers easy compensation for personal deficiencies.Carl Jung Accorded Sayings By Carl Jung: Identification with one's office or title is very attractive indeed, which is precisely why so
The property of manliness in a man is a great possession, but perhaps there is none that is less understood, which is more generally accorded where it does not exist, nor more frequently disallowed where it prevails.Anthony Trollope Accorded Sayings By Anthony Trollope: The property of manliness in a man is a great possession, but perhaps there is
The Quran gave women rights of inheritance and divorce centuries before Western women were accorded such status. TheKaren Armstrong Accorded Sayings By Karen Armstrong: The Quran gave women rights of inheritance and divorce centuries before Western women were accorded
We should give to our rulers, our sires and sons no rest until all our rights - social, civil and political - are fully accorded. How are men to know what we want unless we tell them? They have no idea that our wants, material and spiritual, are the same as theirs; that we love justice, liberty and equality as well as they do; that we believe in the principles of self-government, in individual rights, individual conscience and judgment, the fundamental ideas of the Protestant religion and republican government.Elizabeth Cady Stanton Accorded Sayings By Elizabeth Cady Stanton: We should give to our rulers, our sires and sons no rest until all our
Biology occupies a position among the sciences at once marginal and central. Marginal because-the living world constituting but a tiny and very "special" part of the universe-it does not seem likely that the study of living beings will ever uncover general laws applicable outside the biosphere. But if the ultimate aim of the whole of science is indeed, as I believe, to clarify man's relationship to the universe, then biology must be accorded a central position ...Jacques Monod Accorded Sayings By Jacques Monod: Biology occupies a position among the sciences at once marginal and central. Marginal because-the living
Pain anguish and suffering in human life are always in proportion to the strength with which a man is endowed. We will not pretend to say that Heaven always apportions to a man's capability of endurance the anguish with which he afflicts him ... Suffering is in proportion to the strength which has been accorded in other words the weak suffer more where the trial is the same than the strong.Alexandre Dumas Accorded Sayings By Alexandre Dumas: Pain anguish and suffering in human life are always in proportion to the strength with
At the same time, I was listening to black music, and I began to think that the best musicians were receiving the worst treatment. The people who were doing the greatest work were despised as lower class, with no dignity accorded to what they did.Henry Flynt Accorded Sayings By Henry Flynt: At the same time, I was listening to black music, and I began to think
One of the least impressive liberties is the liberty to starve. This particular liberty is freely accorded to authors.Arnold Goodman, Baron Goodman Accorded Sayings By Arnold Goodman, Baron Goodman: One of the least impressive liberties is the liberty to starve. This particular liberty is
Well, it is generally considered - though not always true - that the wife of a man so honoured is likely also to be worthy of the honour, and so it is accorded her. In the event it is false, and I have known that to be so in more than one circumstance , it is still accorded her in deference to her husband."
~Sherlock Holmes, with respect to aristocratic titles
Stephanie Osborn Accorded Sayings By Stephanie Osborn: Well, it is generally considered - though not always true - that the wife of
Could I have but a line a century hence crediting a contribution to the advance of peace, I would yield every honor which has been accorded by war.Douglas MacArthur Accorded Sayings By Douglas MacArthur: Could I have but a line a century hence crediting a contribution to the advance
To wait at Monte Cristo for the purpose of watching like a dragon over the almost incalculable richs that had thus fallen into his possession satisfied not the cravings of his heart, which yearned to return to dwell among mankind, and to assume the rank, power, and influence which are always accorded to wealth - that first and greatest of all the forces within the grasp of man.Alexandre Dumas Accorded Sayings By Alexandre Dumas: To wait at Monte Cristo for the purpose of watching like a dragon over the
Nowadays men cannot love seven night but they must have all their desires: that love may not endure by reason; for where they be soon accorded and hasty, heat soon it cooleth. Right so fareth love nowadays, soon hot soon cold: this is no stability. But the old love was not so.Thomas Malory Accorded Sayings By Thomas Malory: Nowadays men cannot love seven night but they must have all their desires: that love
Great beauties and stunningly handsome men were accorded virtues: people found them funnier, smarter, more insightful than they actually were.Brent Weeks Accorded Sayings By Brent Weeks: Great beauties and stunningly handsome men were accorded virtues: people found them funnier, smarter, more
To realize one's dream. To whom is this accorded? There must be elections for this in heaven; we are all candidates, unknown to ourselves; the angels vote.Victor Hugo Accorded Sayings By Victor Hugo: To realize one's dream. To whom is this accorded? There must be elections for this
This profession [photography] is deserving of attention and respect equal to that accorded painting, literature, music and architecture.Ansel Adams Accorded Sayings By Ansel Adams: This profession [photography] is deserving of attention and respect equal to that accorded painting, literature,
We long for an affection altogether ignorant of our faults. Heaven has accorded this to us in the uncritical canine attachment.George Eliot Accorded Sayings By George Eliot: We long for an affection altogether ignorant of our faults. Heaven has accorded this to
In the beginning - and neither can this be overstated - a Negro just cannot believe that white people are treating him as they do; he does not know what he has done to merit it. And when he realizes that the treatment accorded him has nothing to do with anything he has done, that the attempt of white people to destroy him - for that is what it is - is utterly gratuitous, it is not hard for him to think of white people as devils.James Baldwin Accorded Sayings By James Baldwin: In the beginning - and neither can this be overstated - a Negro just cannot
Lord, behold our family here assembled. We thank You for this place in which we dwell, for the love accorded us this day, for the hope with which we expect the morrow; for the health, the work, the food and the bright skies that make our lives delightful; for our friends in all parts of the earth. Give us courage and gaiety and the quiet mind. Spare us to our friends, soften us to our enemies. Bless us, if it may be, in all our innocent endeavors; if it may not, give us strength to endure that which is to come that we may be brave in peril, constant in tribulation, temperate in wrath and in all changes of fortune and down to the gates of death, loyal and loving to one another. We beseech of you this help and mercy for Christ's sake.Robert Louis Stevenson Accorded Sayings By Robert Louis Stevenson: Lord, behold our family here assembled. We thank You for this place in which we
Only when he has published his ideas and findings has the scientist made his contribution, and only when he has thus made it part of the public domain of scholarship can he truly lay claim to it as his own. For his claim resides only in the recognition accorded by peers in the social system of science through reference to his work.Robert K. Merton Accorded Sayings By Robert K. Merton: Only when he has published his ideas and findings has the scientist made his contribution,
A man's real life is that accorded to him in the thoughts of other men by reason of respect or natural love.Joseph Conrad Accorded Sayings By Joseph Conrad: A man's real life is that accorded to him in the thoughts of other men

I was accorded the opportunity to learn by failing - albeit at the cost of a few honourable teachers' sanity - and now I realise what a rare and incredible luxury that is.Arabella Weir Accorded Sayings By Arabella Weir: I was accorded the opportunity to learn by failing - albeit at the cost of
They have done their worst, and continued to deny me even the privileges accorded to the common herd ... but I am sustained by the consciousness of my imputed 'crime' being an honourable oneMichael Davitt Accorded Sayings By Michael Davitt: They have done their worst, and continued to deny me even the privileges accorded to
For most inhabitants of the Arab world, the prevailing cultural attitude toward women - fed and encouraged by Wahhabi doctrine, which is based on Bedouin social norms rather than Islamic jurisprudence - often trumps the rights accorded to women by Islam.G. Willow Wilson Accorded Sayings By G. Willow Wilson: For most inhabitants of the Arab world, the prevailing cultural attitude toward women - fed
...read 1984 when it came out in 1949, and found its account of the 'memory hole' peculiarly evocative and frightening, for it accorded with my own doubts about my memory. I think that reading this led to an increase in my own journal keeping, and photographing, and an increased need to look at testimonies of the pastOliver Sacks Accorded Sayings By Oliver Sacks: ...read 1984 when it came out in 1949, and found its account of the 'memory
On closer inspection, the hero status accorded to Abraham, Moses and David in the Old Testament (and echoed in the New Testament) is rooted not in their moral perfection but in their uncompromising dedication to the cause of Yahweh and their rugged trust in the promises of God rather than lapsing into the idolatry of many of their contemporaries.Paul Copan Accorded Sayings By Paul Copan: On closer inspection, the hero status accorded to Abraham, Moses and David in the Old
President Boyd K. Packer, "I am sorry to tell you that it will not get better." President Packer goes on to say: "I know of nothing in the history of the Church, or in the history of the world to compare with our present circumstances. Nothing happened in Sodom and Gomorrah which exceeds in wickedness and depravity that which surrounds us now. Words of profanity, vulgarity, and blasphemy are heard everywhere. Unspeakable wickedness and perversion were once hidden in dark places; now they are in the open, and even accorded legal protection. At Sodom and Gomorrah these things were localized. Now, they are spread across the world, and they are among us".Mechelle McDermott Accorded Sayings By Mechelle McDermott: President Boyd K. Packer, "I am sorry to tell you that it will not get
One would never defeat one's circumstances by working and saving one's pennies; one would never, by working, acquire that many pennies, and, besides, the social treatment accorded even the most successful Negroes proved that one needed, in order to be free, something more than a bank account. One needed a handle, a lever, a means of inspiring fear. It was absolutely clear that the police would whip you and take you in as long as they could get away with it, and that everyone else - housewives, taxi-drivers, elevator boys, dishwashers, bartenders, lawyers, judges, doctors, and grocers - would never, by the operation of any generous human feeling, cease to use you as an outlet for his frustrations and hostilities.James Baldwin Accorded Sayings By James Baldwin: One would never defeat one's circumstances by working and saving one's pennies; one would never,
Being bullied by a serial bully is equivalent to being stalked or being battered by a partner or being abused as a child and should be accorded the same gravity.Tim Field Accorded Sayings By Tim Field: Being bullied by a serial bully is equivalent to being stalked or being battered by
By this time, around 0745, unknown others were doing the same, whether NCOs or junior officers or, in some cases, privates. Staying on the beach meant certain death; retreat was not possible; someone had to lead; men took the burden on themselves and did. Bingham put it this way: The individual and small-unit initiative carried the day. Very little, if any, credit can be accorded company, battalion, or regimental commanders for their tactical prowess and/or their coordination of the action.Stephen E. Ambrose Accorded Sayings By Stephen E. Ambrose: By this time, around 0745, unknown others were doing the same, whether NCOs or junior
It is generally my thesis then to insist on the importance of imagination in sex, to insist that the practice of sex, as performed among human beings, be accorded the same deliberate and playful application of fancy, imagination and intelligence as any other significant human activity.John Norman Accorded Sayings By John Norman: It is generally my thesis then to insist on the importance of imagination in sex,
Some of us seem to accept the fatalist position, the fatalist attitude, that God accorded to us a certain position and condition, and therefore there is no need trying to be otherwise. The moment you accept such an attitude, the moment you accept such an opinion, the moment you harbor such an idea, you hurl an insult at the great God who created you, because you question Him for His love, you question Him for His mercy.Marcus Garvey Accorded Sayings By Marcus Garvey: Some of us seem to accept the fatalist position, the fatalist attitude, that God accorded
Never has any one been less a priest than Jesus, never a greater enemy of forms, which stifle religion under the pretext of protecting it. By this we are all his disciples and his successors; by this he has laid the eternal foundation-stone of true religion; and if religion is essential to humanity, he has by this deserved the Divine rank the world has accorded him.Ernest Renan Accorded Sayings By Ernest Renan: Never has any one been less a priest than Jesus, never a greater enemy of
Be a good listener in the special way a story requires: note the manner of presentation; the development of plot, character; the addition of new dramatic sequences; the emphasis accorded to one figure or another in the recital; and the degree of enthusiam, of coherence, the narrator gives to his or her account.Robert Coles Accorded Sayings By Robert Coles: Be a good listener in the special way a story requires: note the manner of
The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father's role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts
a child
as a competitor, an intrusion and an inconvenience. It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the dependent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters. And, in granting this unconscionable power, it has exposed many women to unjust and selfish demands from their husbands or other sexual partners.
Mother Teresa Accorded Sayings By Mother Teresa: The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men.
This wasn't a POW camp. It was a secret interrogation center called Ofuna, where "high-value" captured men were housed in solitary confinement, starved, tormented, and tortured to divulge military secrets. Because Ofuna was kept secret from the outside world, the Japanese operated with an absolutely free hand. The men in Ofuna, said the Japanese, weren't POWs; they were "unarmed combatants" at war against Japan and, as such, didn't have the rights that international law accorded POWs. In fact, they had no rights at all. If captives "confessed their crimes against Japan," they'd be treated "as well as regulations permit." Over the course of the war, some one thousand Allied captives would be hauled into Ofuna, and many would be held there for years.Laura Hillenbrand Accorded Sayings By Laura Hillenbrand: This wasn't a POW camp. It was a secret interrogation center called Ofuna, where "high-value"
She had always enjoyed the carte blanche accorded to mobsters, aristocrats, circus clowns, and lunaticsSimon Doonan Accorded Sayings By Simon Doonan: She had always enjoyed the carte blanche accorded to mobsters, aristocrats, circus clowns, and lunatics
It is not in giving life but in risking life that man is raised above the animal; that is why superiority has been accorded in humanity not to the sex that brings forth but to that which kills.Simone De Beauvoir Accorded Sayings By Simone De Beauvoir: It is not in giving life but in risking life that man is raised above
It is a significant fact that, of all the Christian countries, in those where the church stands highest, and has most power, women rank lowest, and have fewest rights accorded them, whether of personal liberty or proprietary interest.Helen H. Gardener Accorded Sayings By Helen H. Gardener: It is a significant fact that, of all the Christian countries, in those where the
Ambitions for self may be quite modest ... Ambitions for God, however, if they are to be worthy, can never be modest. There is something inherently inappropriate about cherishing small ambitions for God. How can we ever be content that he should acquire just a little more honour in the world? No. Once we are clear that God is King, then we long to see him crowned with glory and honour, and accorded his true place, which is the supreme place. We become ambitious for the spread of his kingdom and righteousness everywhere.John Stott Accorded Sayings By John Stott: Ambitions for self may be quite modest ... Ambitions for God, however, if they are
In many instances the conduct of colored workmen, and those who have spoken for them, has not been in asking or demanding that equal rights be accorded to them as to white workmen, but somehow conveying the idea that they are to be petted and coddled and given special consideration and special privilege. Of course that can't be done.Samuel Gompers Accorded Sayings By Samuel Gompers: In many instances the conduct of colored workmen, and those who have spoken for them,
As motherhood as a "private enterprise" declines and more mothers rely on the work of lower-paid specialists, the value accorded the work of mothering (not the value of children) has declined for women, making it all the harder for men to take it up.Arlie Russell Hochschild Accorded Sayings By Arlie Russell Hochschild: As motherhood as a "private enterprise" declines and more mothers rely on the work of
It seems Montgomery could not help himself when it came to this vase. I'm afraid he has a weakness for beautiful things and has been known to relocate an item if he feels it is not being accorded the proper appreciation. Once he 'relocated' an ancient sculpture from the home of another archangel.Nalini Singh Accorded Sayings By Nalini Singh: It seems Montgomery could not help himself when it came to this vase. I'm afraid
In some strata of Greek and Roman society the engineer was actually denigrated, higher esteem being accorded to poets, playwrights and sculptors. According to Plutarch, Archimedes was praised for refusing to contaminate his theoretical and mathematical science with practical applications, although under extreme pressure at the siege of Syracuse in Sicily he did design practical machinery.Stephanie Dalley Accorded Sayings By Stephanie Dalley: In some strata of Greek and Roman society the engineer was actually denigrated, higher esteem
We count the courtesies accorded us by unpopular people as offenses.Friedrich Nietzsche Accorded Sayings By Friedrich Nietzsche: We count the courtesies accorded us by unpopular people as offenses.
What is at stake is human dignity. If a man is not accorded respect he cannot respect himself and if he does not respect himself, he cannot demand it.Cesar Chavez Accorded Sayings By Cesar Chavez: What is at stake is human dignity. If a man is not accorded respect he
Advertising is simply a use of the right of the manufacture to present his case and to employ the same arts of appeal and persuasion accorded to the politician, the preacher, the lawyer, and to every other individual who has a special interest in something, whether a creed or a commodity.Raymond Rubicam Accorded Sayings By Raymond Rubicam: Advertising is simply a use of the right of the manufacture to present his case
By default, we have created a "system" of nursing-home care for the aged in which middle-class people pay exorbitant rates to for-profit nursing-home entrepreneurs - and then when private resources are consumed and the patient qualifies as a pauper, the nursing home begins billing Medicaid. This is precisely the antithesis of social citizenship; instead of the poor being accorded the dignity associated with the middle class, equality of treatment is achieved by making the middle class undergo pauperization.Robert Kuttner Accorded Sayings By Robert Kuttner: By default, we have created a "system" of nursing-home care for the aged in which
Is woman a religion? Well, perhaps you will have the chance of judging for yourselves if you go to America. There you will find men treating women with just the same respect formerly accorded only to religious dignitaries or to great nobles.Lafcadio Hearn Accorded Sayings By Lafcadio Hearn: Is woman a religion? Well, perhaps you will have the chance of judging for yourselves
I am the abandoned child, now become a man. So everything has turned out pretty well. . . A little too much importance is accorded to things I say.Emmanuel Bove Accorded Sayings By Emmanuel Bove: I am the abandoned child, now become a man. So everything has turned out pretty
The role and weight to be accorded medical testimony in Administrative hearings before the Post Office Department was established ... These decisions enunciate a rule that informed medical consensus and the 'universality of scientific belief' may be established through the testimony of a (one, single - Ed.) medical doctor.J. Edward Day Accorded Sayings By J. Edward Day: The role and weight to be accorded medical testimony in Administrative hearings before the Post
The soldier is convinced that a certain indefinitely extendable time period is accorded him before he is killed, the burglar before he is caught, men in general, before they must die. That is the amulet which preserves individuals - and sometimes populations - not from danger, but from the fear of danger, in reality from the belief in danger, which in some cases allows them to brave it without being brave. Such a confidence, just as unfounded, supports the lover who counts on a reconciliation, a letter.Marcel Proust Accorded Sayings By Marcel Proust: The soldier is convinced that a certain indefinitely extendable time period is accorded him before
The youth of today and the youth of tomorrow will be accorded an almost unequaled opportunity for great accomplishment and for human service.Nicholas Murray Butler Accorded Sayings By Nicholas Murray Butler: The youth of today and the youth of tomorrow will be accorded an almost unequaled
The egoist ... destroys the universal importance accorded to moral law by showing that life independent of it is possible. Secondly, and even more intolerably to the pious, he manages to do so with shameless enjoyment.John Carroll Accorded Sayings By John Carroll: The egoist ... destroys the universal importance accorded to moral law by showing that life
Self-pity, while it should be accorded due respect, is the greatest of all acids to the human soul.Paul Hoffman Accorded Sayings By Paul Hoffman: Self-pity, while it should be accorded due respect, is the greatest of all acids to
Remembering the treatment that had been accorded the Knights and soldiers of St. Elmo, the Maltese inhabitants of Senglea took no prisoners. Hence there arose the expression (used in Malta to this day) 'St. Elmo's pay' for any action in which no mercy is given.Ernle Dusgate Selby Bradford Accorded Sayings By Ernle Dusgate Selby Bradford: Remembering the treatment that had been accorded the Knights and soldiers of St. Elmo, the
The hated system of land tenure, so contributory to general unrest in Asia, has been abolished. Every farmer is now accorded the right and dignity of ownership of the land he long has tilled.Douglas MacArthur Accorded Sayings By Douglas MacArthur: The hated system of land tenure, so contributory to general unrest in Asia, has been
I have known Tavis Smiley since the 1980s, when we both worked at the same radio station in Los Angeles. He is smart, and he is a gentleman who has accorded me great respect both on and off the air.Dennis Prager Accorded Sayings By Dennis Prager: I have known Tavis Smiley since the 1980s, when we both worked at the same
The problem is this: nature has assembled all these species on this planet. The human species is no more important than any other species on this planet. For some reason, man accorded himself a superior place in this scheme of things. He thinks that he is created for some grander purpose than, if I could give a crude example, the mosquito that is sucking his blood. What is responsible for this is the value system that we have created. And the value system has come out of the religious thinking of man. Man has created religion because it gives him a cover. This demand to fulfill himself, to seek something out there was made imperative because of this self-consciousness in you which occurred somewhere along the line of the evolutionary process. Man separated himself from the totality of nature.U.G. Krishnamurti Accorded Sayings By U.G. Krishnamurti: The problem is this: nature has assembled all these species on this planet. The human
In his later life Mark Twain was accorded high academic honors. Already, in 1888, he had received from Yale College the degree of Master of Arts, and the same college made him a Doctor of Literature in 1901. A year later the university of his own State, at Columbia, Missouri, conferred the same degree, and then, in 1907, came the crowning honor, when venerable Oxford tendered him the doctor's robe. "I don't know why they should give me a degree like that," he said, quaintly. "I never doctored any literature - I wouldn't know how.Mark Twain Accorded Sayings By Mark Twain: In his later life Mark Twain was accorded high academic honors. Already, in 1888, he
To the factory farmer, in contrast to the traditional farmer with his sense of honor and obligation, the animals are 'production units,' and accorded all the sympathy that term suggests.Matthew Scully Accorded Sayings By Matthew Scully: To the factory farmer, in contrast to the traditional farmer with his sense of honor
To live under the American Constitution is the greatest political privilege that was ever accorded to the human race.Calvin Coolidge Accorded Sayings By Calvin Coolidge: To live under the American Constitution is the greatest political privilege that was ever accorded
They have accorded me my constitutional rights, and that is to their credit because the media hate campaign against me has been so intense and so vicious that it's a miracle that the police have taken such a professional approach.Ernst Zundel Accorded Sayings By Ernst Zundel: They have accorded me my constitutional rights, and that is to their credit because the
An attempt to create a new conceptual terrain for imagining alternatives to imprisonment involves the ideological work of questioning why "criminals" have been constituted as a class and, indeed, a class of human beings undeserving of the civil and human rights accorded to others. Radical criminologists have long pointed out that the category "lawbreakers" is far greater than the category of individuals who are deemed criminals since, many point out, almost all of us have broken the law at one time or another.Angela Y. Davis Accorded Sayings By Angela Y. Davis: An attempt to create a new conceptual terrain for imagining alternatives to imprisonment involves the
It is goodness that gives to a neighborhood its beauty. One who is free to choose, yet does not prefer to dwell among the good - how can he be accorded the name of wise?Confucius Accorded Sayings By Confucius: It is goodness that gives to a neighborhood its beauty. One who is free to
To be a woman condemned to a wretched and disgraceful punishment is no impediment to beauty, but it is an insurmountable obstacle to power. Like all persons of real genius, her ladyship well knew what accorded with her nature and her means. Poverty disgusted her -subjection deprived her of two-thirds of her greatness. Her ladyship was only a queen amongst queens: the enjoyment of satisfied pride was essential to her sway. To command beings of an inferior nature, was, to her, rather a humiliation than a pleasure.Alexandre Dumas Accorded Sayings By Alexandre Dumas: To be a woman condemned to a wretched and disgraceful punishment is no impediment to
[Director Christopher] Nolan has not only crafted the best Batman movie, but arguably the second-best motion picture superhero narrative (topped only by the linked duo of Superman and Superman II ). For those who thought Spider-Man and X-Men had a lot to offer, wait till you see where this film goes ... Batman Begins is a strong re-start to a franchise that deserves better than it has often been accorded.James Berardinelli Accorded Sayings By James Berardinelli: [Director Christopher] Nolan has not only crafted the best Batman movie, but arguably the second-best
Let us rededicate ourselves to the principle that all Americans have the tools to make the most of their God-given potential. For Indian tribes and tribal members, this means that the authority of tribal governments must be accorded the respect and support to which they are entitled under the law. It means that American Indian children and youth must be provided a solid education and the opportunity to go on to college. It means that more must be done to stimulate tribal economies, create jobs, and increase economic opportunities.William J. Clinton Accorded Sayings By William J. Clinton: Let us rededicate ourselves to the principle that all Americans have the tools to make
Despite hating mobs and technically being a nobleman, Napoleon welcomed the Revolution. At least in its early stages it accorded well with the Enlightenment ideals he had ingested from his reading of Rousseau and Voltaire.Andrew Roberts Accorded Sayings By Andrew Roberts: Despite hating mobs and technically being a nobleman, Napoleon welcomed the Revolution. At least in
Then I noticed a small plate of complimentary marshmallows near Chloe's elbow and it suddenly seemed clear that I didn't love Chloe so much as marshmallow her. What it was about a marshmallow that should suddenly have accorded so perfectly with my feelings towards her I will never know, but the word seemed to capture the essence of my amorous state with an accuracy that the word love, weary with overuse, simply could not aspire to. Even more inexplicably, when I took Chloe's hand and told her that I had something very important to tell her, that I marshmallowed her, she seemed to understand perfectly, answering it was the sweetest thing anyone had ever told her.Alain De Botton Accorded Sayings By Alain De Botton: Then I noticed a small plate of complimentary marshmallows near Chloe's elbow and it suddenly
Happy indeed are those days when the book-lover has been accorded the freedom of some ancient library. A delicious feeling of tranquillity pervades him as he selects some nook and settles himself to read.P.B.M. Allan Accorded Sayings By P.B.M. Allan: Happy indeed are those days when the book-lover has been accorded the freedom of some
Even if they are teaching truth, all others who have claimed or been accorded prophetic status are still at best human beings on whom this call from God was bestowed. Their assignment is a given one; they are the human receptors. Jesus, in distinction, is the Supreme Giver Himself. He is "from above," say the Gospel writers.Ravi Zacharias Accorded Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Even if they are teaching truth, all others who have claimed or been accorded prophetic
Motherhood, to be sure, receives a great deal of sentimental adulation, but only if it is committed in accordance with rules which have been prescribed by a predominantly masculine society. Per se it is accorded no respect whatever. When it results from a sexual relationship which has been duly sanctioned by organized society, it is holy, no matter how much it may transgress the rules of decency, health, or common sense. Otherwise it is a sin meriting social ostracism for the mother and obloquy for the child - an ostracism and obloquy, significantly enough, in which the father does not share.Suzanne La Follette Accorded Sayings By Suzanne La Follette: Motherhood, to be sure, receives a great deal of sentimental adulation, but only if it
The resource of generational history is accorded little attention our society, which seems ever more obsessed with making "new" and "better" synonymous. From my family I became aware of the importance of passing along wisdom from one generation to the next. Yet despite the increasing proliferation of digital recording and other communication technologies, we're passing on less knowledge today than our parents did through the oral tradition alone. We're drowning in photographs and videos, capturing every mundane moment of our birthdays, holidays, and vacations. Yet these can be no more than pleasant distraction, only scratching the surface of our real relationships.Ralph Nader Accorded Sayings By Ralph Nader: The resource of generational history is accorded little attention our society, which seems ever more
Whatever oppressions man has suffered, they have invariably fallen more heavily on woman. Whatever new liberties advancing civilization has brought to man, ever the smallest measure has been accorded to woman, as a result of church teaching. The effect of this is seen in every department of life.Elizabeth Cady Stanton Accorded Sayings By Elizabeth Cady Stanton: Whatever oppressions man has suffered, they have invariably fallen more heavily on woman.

But it is recognized that punishment for the abuse of the liberty accorded to the press is essential to the protection of the public, and that the common law rules that subject the libeler to responsibility for the public offense, as well as for the private injury, are not abolished by the protection extended in our constitutions. The law of criminal libel rests upon that secure foundation. There is also the conceded authority of courts to punish for contempt when publications directly tend to prevent the proper discharge of judicial functions.Charles Evans Hughes Accorded Sayings By Charles Evans Hughes: But it is recognized that punishment for the abuse of the liberty accorded to the
Of all the fads and foibles in the long history of human credulity, scientism in all its varied guises - from fanciful cosmology to evolutionary epistemology and ethics - seems among the more dangerous, both because it pretends to be something very different from what it really is and because it has been accorded widespread and uncritical adherence. Continued insistence on the universal competence of science will serve only to undermine the credibility of science as a whole. The ultimate outcome will be an increase of radical skepticism that questions the ability of science to address even the questions legitimately within its sphere of competence. One longs for a new Enlightenment to puncture the pretensions of this latest superstition.

My conversational difficulties highlight a problem Aspergians face every day. A person with an obvious disability - for example, someone in a wheelchair - is treated compassionately because his handicap is obvious. No one turns to a guy in a wheelchair and says, "Quick! Let's run across the street!" And when he can't run across the street, no one says, "What's his problem?" They offer to help him across the street. With me, though, there is no external sign that I am conversationally handicapped. So folks hear some conversational misstep and say, "What an arrogant jerk!" I look forward to the day when my handicap will afford me the same respect accorded to a guy in a wheelchair. And if the respect comes with a preferred parking space, I won't turn it down.John Elder Robison Accorded Sayings By John Elder Robison: My conversational difficulties highlight a problem Aspergians face every day.

So long as we have held fast to voluntary principles and have been actuated and inspired by the spirit of service, we have sustained our forward progress, and we have made our labor movement something to be respected and accorded a place in the councils of the Republic. Where we have blundered into trying to force a policy or decision, even though wise and right, we have impeded if not interrupted the realization of our own aims.Samuel Gompers Accorded Sayings By Samuel Gompers: So long as we have held fast to voluntary principles and have been actuated and

A recent book by University of Chicago professor of philosophy and law Brian Leiter outlines what I believe will become the theoretical consensus that does away with religious liberty in spirit if not in letter. "There is no principled reason," he writes, "for legal or constitutional regimes to single out religion for protection." . . . Evoking the principle of fairness, Leiter argues that everybody's conscience should be accorded the same legal protections. Thus he proposes to replace religious liberty with a plenary "liberty of conscience."

Leiter's argument is libertarian. He wants to get the government out of the business of deciding whose conscience is worth protecting. This mentality seems to expand freedom, but that's an illusion. In practice it will lead to diminished freedom, as is always the case with any thoroughgoing libertarianism.

Our feelings about menstruation are the image of what it is to be a woman in this culture. While menstruation and the fear of revealing evidence of loss of body control bear possibilities of humiliation for women of which men are not aware, it is humiliating too to be that sex whose voice and presence carry less significance. It is humiliating to speak the same words as a man and have his heard, and not yours. It is humiliating to feel invisible when God gave you a body as solid as his. It is humiliating that women are accorded little dignity unless they are married. We twist these humiliations around, of course, and say it is glorious to have a man fight our battles for us, put us on a pedestal, take care of us. It is, if you enjoy being dependent on someone else.Nancy Friday Accorded Sayings By Nancy Friday: Our feelings about menstruation are the image of what it is to be a woman

People who hold important positions in society are commonly labelled "somebodies," and their inverse "nobodies"-both of which are, of course, nonsensical descriptors, for we are all, by necessity, individuals with distinct identities and comparable claims on existence. Such words are nevertheless an apt vehicle for conveying the disparate treatment accorded to different groups. Those without status are all but invisible: they are treated brusquely by others, their complexities trampled upon and their singularities ignored.Alain De Botton Accorded Sayings By Alain De Botton: People who hold important positions in society are commonly labelled "somebodies," and their inverse "nobodies"-both
