Nothing - and I mean, really, absolutely nothing - is more extraordinary in Britain than the beauty of the countryside. Nowhere in the world is there a landscape that has been more intensively utilised - more mined, farmed, quarried, covered with cities and clanging factories, threaded with motorways and railway lines - and yet remains so comprehensively and reliably lovely over most of its extent.Bill Bryson Comprehensively Sayings By Bill Bryson: Nothing - and I mean, really, absolutely nothing - is more extraordinary in Britain than

the word God is typically invoked to denote the all-encompassing and unanswerable source of authority governing what people can think, say, eat and wear, in what circumstances and with whom they can have sexual relations, how they must behave on specified days or weeks of the year, and so comprehensively on. The fact that different religions claim that their god or gods have different requirements in these respects should be evidence that religions are man-made and historically conditioned, but religious people think that this insight only applies to other people's religions, not their ownA.C. Grayling Comprehensively Sayings By A.C. Grayling: the word God is typically invoked to denote the all-encompassing and unanswerable source of authority
He didn't give a damn for the defeatist Kennedy, or indeed for that stuffed-shirt Chamberlain, whom Hitler had comprehensively hoodwinked. Nothing should stand in the way of a murder investigation, however lowly the victim. No doubt Joan's fate would seem unimportant in the greater scheme of things whenever the Luftwaffe got round to bombing London, but that was nothing to him. It was his job to seek out the truth behind her death, regardless.Mark Ellis Comprehensively Sayings By Mark Ellis: He didn't give a damn for the defeatist Kennedy, or indeed for that stuffed-shirt Chamberlain,

Thus, when Paul says, "Praise the Lord all you nations, and let all the peoples extol him" (Rom. 15:11), he is saying that there is something about God that is so universally praiseworthy and so profoundly beautiful and so comprehensively worth and so deeply satisfying that God will find passionate admirers in every diverse people group in the world. His true greatness will be manifest in the breadth of the diversity of those who perceive and cherish his beauty. His excellence will be shown to be higher and deeper than the parochial preferences that make us happy most of the time. His appeal will be to the deepest, highest, largest capacities of the human soul. Thus, the diversity of the source of admiration will testify to his incomparable glory.John Piper Comprehensively Sayings By John Piper: Thus, when Paul says, "Praise the Lord all you nations, and let all the peoples

I wanted an agent who would actually sell stuff. After two British agents failed comprehensively, I was reading Locus (the SF field's trade journal) and noticed a press release about an experienced editor leaving her job to join an agent in setting up a new agency. And I went "aha!" - because what you need is an agent who knows the industry but who doesn't have a huge list of famous clients whose needs will inevitably be put ahead of you. So I emailed her, and ... well, 11 years later I am the client listed at the top of her masthead!Charles Stross Comprehensively Sayings By Charles Stross: I wanted an agent who would actually sell stuff. After two British agents failed comprehensively,
Over the years, my marks on paper have landed me in all sorts of courts and controversies - I have been comprehensively labelled; anti-this and anti-that, anti-social, anti-football, anti-woman, anti-gay, anti-Semitic, anti-science, anti-republican, anti-American, anti-Australian - to recall just an armful of the antis.Michael Leunig Comprehensively Sayings By Michael Leunig: Over the years, my marks on paper have landed me in all sorts of courts
[Soho] is all things to all men, catering comprehensively for those needs which money can buy. You see it as you wish. An agreeable place to dine; a cosmopolitan village tucked away behind Piccadilly with its own mysterious village life, one of the best shopping centres for food in London, the nastiest and most sordid nursery of crime in Europe. Even the travel journalists, obsessed by its ambiguities, can't make up their minds.P.D. James Comprehensively Sayings By P.D. James: [Soho] is all things to all men, catering comprehensively for those needs which money can

The thin end of the sensible clothes wedge had been inserted in society by the disgraceful Mrs Bloomer a decade and a half before the year of which I write; but that early attempt at the trouser suit had been comprehensively defeated by the crinoline--a small fact of considerable significance in our understanding of the Victorians. They were offered sense; and chose a six-foot folly unparalleled in the most folly-ridden of minor arts.John Fowles Comprehensively Sayings By John Fowles: The thin end of the sensible clothes wedge had been inserted in society by the
There are few occasions in any argument where one side is completely right and the other comprehensively wrong. This is one of them. Jack Lew's Treasury was spot on and the German response utterly ludicrous. The US Treasury Department's underlying analysis was founded on basic macroeconomics that Berlin, and the Eurogroup (as I have personally witnessed), refuses to acknowledge.Yanis Varoufakis Comprehensively Sayings By Yanis Varoufakis: There are few occasions in any argument where one side is completely right and the

The cosmic question has been asked: are humans worthwhile to universe invention?R. Buckminster Fuller Comprehensively Sayings By R. Buckminster Fuller: Whether humanity is to comprehensively prosper ... depends entirely on the integrity of the human
Being an art buyer these days is comprehensively and indisputably vulgar. It is the sport of the Eurotrashy, Hedge-fundy, Hamptonites; of trendy oligarchs and oiligarchs; and of art dealers with masturbatory levels of self-regard.Charles Saatchi Comprehensively Sayings By Charles Saatchi: Being an art buyer these days is comprehensively and indisputably vulgar. It is the sport
I very comprehensively studied Irving Thalberg and his biographies. He's who [Scott]Fitzgerald roughly modeled the character after. He worked for him, as a writer, when he was at MGM. And, of course, I revisited the novel and the politics of MGM and the studio system at the time and familiarized myself with the world. There was a great deal of physical and literary work that went into it.Matt Bomer Comprehensively Sayings By Matt Bomer: I very comprehensively studied Irving Thalberg and his biographies.

Keep your head down, think small, look after yourself: these constituted the lessons of Leopold. The spirit, once comprehensively crushed, does not recover easily. For seventy-five years, from 1885 to 1960, Congo's population had marinated in humiliation. No malevolent witch-doctor could have devised a better preparation for the coming of a second Great Dictator.Michela Wrong Comprehensively Sayings By Michela Wrong: Keep your head down, think small, look after yourself: these constituted the lessons of Leopold.
In fact, healthy students often redouble their resistance to teaching as they find themselves more comprehensively manipulated. This resistance is due not to the authoritarian style of a public school or the seductive style of some free schools, but to the fundamental approach common to all schools-the idea that one person's judgment should determine what and when another person must learn.Ivan Illich Comprehensively Sayings By Ivan Illich: In fact, healthy students often redouble their resistance to teaching as they find themselves more
In truth, philosophy is the mode of thought shaped by the most radical form of prejudice: the passion of being-in-the-world. With the sole exception of specialists in the field, virtually everyone senses that anything which offers less than this passion play remains philosophically trivial. Cultural anthropologists suggest the appealing term 'deep play' for the comprehensively absorbing preoccupations of human beings. From the perspective of a theory of the practising life we would add: the deep plays are those which are moved by the heights.Peter Sloterdijk Comprehensively Sayings By Peter Sloterdijk: In truth, philosophy is the mode of thought shaped by the most radical form of
The history of imitation of the older literature, particularly abroad, has among other advantages this one, that the important concepts of unintentional parody and passive wit can be deduced from it most easily and comprehensively.Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel Comprehensively Sayings By Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel: The history of imitation of the older literature, particularly abroad, has among other advantages this
A convention on the comprehensive ban of nuclear weapons should be negotiated. Since biological and chemical weapons have been prohibited, there is no reason why nuclear weapons, which are more destructive, should not be comprehensively banned and thoroughly destroyed. All it takes to reach this objective is strong political will.Jiang Zemin Comprehensively Sayings By Jiang Zemin: A convention on the comprehensive ban of nuclear weapons should be negotiated. Since biological and

A comprehensively reductive conception is favored by the belief that the propensity for the development of organisms with a subjective view must have been there from the beginning, just as the propensity for the formation of atoms, molecules, galaxies, and organic compounds must have been there from the beginning.Thomas Nagel Comprehensively Sayings By Thomas Nagel: A comprehensively reductive conception is favored by the belief that the propensity for the development
Our Prime Minister, Gordon Brown has given the Government's support to the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill.

Freneuse is an oddball, an idler, without any aim in life! If you ask me, he has smoked too much opium in the East, and that explains his somnolence, his morbid lethargies. It's the hazardous legacy of bad habits! He has been comprehensively undone; the heavy influence of poisonous opiates never ceases to oppress him. Besides which, his steel-blue eyes are surely the eyes of a smoker of opium. He carries the drunken burden of hemp in his veins. Opium is like syphilis' - le Mazel released the word carelessly - 'it is a thing which stays for years and years in the blood, because the body is unable to purge itself. It must be absorbed, in the long run, by iodide.Jean Lorrain Comprehensively Sayings By Jean Lorrain: Freneuse is an oddball, an idler, without any aim in life! If you ask me,
It is necessary to master Marxist theory and apply it, master it for the sole purpose of applying it. If you can apply the Marxist-Leninist viewpoint in elucidating one or two practical problems, you should be commended and credited with some achievement. The more problems you elucidate and the more comprehensively and profoundly you do so, the greater will be your achievement.Mao Zedong Comprehensively Sayings By Mao Zedong: It is necessary to master Marxist theory and apply it, master it for the sole
I cannot understand anti-abortion arguments that centre on the sanctity of life. As a species we've fairly comprehensively demonstrated that we don't believe in the sanctity of life. The shrugging acceptance of war, famine, epidemic, pain and life-long poverty shows us that, whatever we tell ourselves, we've made only the most feeble of efforts to really treat human life as sacred.Caitlin Moran Comprehensively Sayings By Caitlin Moran: I cannot understand anti-abortion arguments that centre on the sanctity of life. As a species
If you can help other people understand those truths - and in my mind, the only way I know to do that is with large scale, multi-year research projects, where you start with a question and then very rigorously and comprehensively answer that question.James Collins Comprehensively Sayings By James Collins: If you can help other people understand those truths - and in my mind, the
My lord said, amongst other things, that he did not propose to burden the doctor with the details of his genealogy. He consigned the doctor and all his works, severally and comprehensively described, to hell, and finished up his epic speech by a pungent and Rabelaisian criticism of the whole race of leeches.Georgette Heyer Comprehensively Sayings By Georgette Heyer: My lord said, amongst other things, that he did not propose to burden the doctor
God wills our liberation, our exodus from Egypt. God wills our reconciliation, our return from exile. God wills our enlightenment, our seeing. God wills our forgiveness, our release from sin and guilt. God wills that we see ourselves as God's beloved. God wills our resurrection, our passage from death to life. God wills for us food and drink that satisfy our hunger and thirst. God wills, comprehensively, our well-being - not just my well-being as an individual but the well-being of all of us and of the whole of creation. In short, God wills our salvation, our healing, here on earth. The Christian life is about participating in the salvation of God.Marcus J. Borg Comprehensively Sayings By Marcus J. Borg: God wills our liberation, our exodus from Egypt. God wills our reconciliation, our return from
The immigration system is broken and it needs to be fixed. And it needs to be fixed comprehensively, because this country depends on immigrant workers, but we don't have a system that reflects that.

The insistence on complete certainty about the full details of global warming-the most serious threat we have ever faced-is actually an effort to avoid facing the awful, uncomfortable truth: that we must act boldly, decisively, comprehensively, and quickly, even before we know every last detail about the crisis. Those who continue to argue that the appropriate response is merely additional research are simply seeking to camouflage timidity or protect their vested interest in the status quo.Al Gore Comprehensively Sayings By Al Gore: The insistence on complete certainty about the full details of global warming-the most serious threat
I hate outlines. I have a broad sense of where the story is going; I know the end, I know the end of the principal characters, and I know the major turning points and events from the books, the climaxes for each book, but I don't necessarily know each twist and turn along the way. That's something I discover in the course of writing and that's what makes writing enjoyable. I think if I outlined comprehensively and stuck to the outline the actual writing would be boring.George R R Martin Comprehensively Sayings By George R R Martin: I hate outlines. I have a broad sense of where the story is going; I
A system that is comprehensively tested and passes all of its tests all of the time is a testable system. That's an obvious statement, but an important one. Systems that aren't testable aren't verifiable. Arguably, a system that cannot be verified should never be deployed.Robert C. Martin Comprehensively Sayings By Robert C. Martin: A system that is comprehensively tested and passes all of its tests all of the
Over time I just realised the world is a very complicated place, and there is not a single structured belief system that adequately and comprehensively describes every aspect of our existence. So that is my new approach to life and spirituality - I don't know anything, except on a very naive and subjective level.Moby Comprehensively Sayings By Moby: Over time I just realised the world is a very complicated place, and there is
We live fragmented, compartmentalized lives in which contradictions are carefully sealed off from each other. We have been taught to think linearly rather than comprehensively, and we do this not through conscious design or because we are not intelligent or capable, but because of the way in which deep cultural undercurrents structure life in subtle but highly consistent ways that are not consciously formulated.Edward T. Hall Comprehensively Sayings By Edward T. Hall: We live fragmented, compartmentalized lives in which contradictions are carefully sealed off from each other.
