Kepler and Newton represent a critical transition in human history, the discovery that fairly simple mathematical laws pervade all of Nature; that the same rules apply on Earth as in the skies; and that there is a resonance between the way we think and the way the world works.Carl Sagan Fairly Sayings By Carl Sagan: Kepler and Newton represent a critical transition in human history, the discovery that fairly simple
Since psyche and matter are contained in one and the same world, and moreover are in continuous contact with one another and ultimately rest on irrepresentable, transcendental factors, it is not only possible but fairly probable, even, that psyche and matter are two different aspects of the same thing.Carl Jung Fairly Sayings By Carl Jung: Since psyche and matter are contained in one and the same world, and moreover are
If one's husband had been married before and widowed - a fairly common condition - and a close relative of his first wife's died, the second wife was expected to engage in "complementary mourning" - a kind of proxy mourning on behalf of the deceased earlier partner.Bill Bryson Fairly Sayings By Bill Bryson: If one's husband had been married before and widowed - a fairly common condition -
Like my hero Virginia Woolf, I do lack confidence. I always find that the novel I'm finishing, even if it's turned out fairly well, is not the novel I had in my mind. I think a lot of writers must negotiate this, and if they don't admit it, they're not being honest.Michael Cunningham Fairly Sayings By Michael Cunningham: Like my hero Virginia Woolf, I do lack confidence. I always find that the novel
I'm old enough to have lived in a country where, if you were willing to work hard, you could have a fairly nice life. You could support your family, and even get a shot at owning your own home. But you never thought you'd get a swimming pool. Now culture has hypnotised people into thinking they're really nothing if they're not wealthy and a Kardashian.Tom Petty Fairly Sayings By Tom Petty: I'm old enough to have lived in a country where, if you were willing to
Before I became President, in the aftermath of the Vietnam War, there had been fairly dramatic, and I think excessive, reductions in the capability of our military forces, and as a former military man myself - I was a professional naval officer, a submarine officer - I thought it was better, on a step-by-step, very carefully planned way, to increase the technical, or technological, capability of our weapons systems.Jimmy Carter Fairly Sayings By Jimmy Carter: Before I became President, in the aftermath of the Vietnam War, there had been fairly
Secured cards can be helpful credit rebuilding tools for two reasons. First, because of the collateral, you can get them at a time when you're not likely to be approved for nonsecured cards. And as long as you maintain an on-time payment history, they can help you start to build a recent credit history that's fairly pristine.Jean Chatzky Fairly Sayings By Jean Chatzky: Secured cards can be helpful credit rebuilding tools for two reasons. First, because of the
I'd sooner have died than admit that the most valuable thing I owned was a fairly extensive collection of German industrial music dance mix EP records stored for even further embarrassment under a box of crumbling Christmas tree ornaments in a Portland, Oregon basement. So I told him I owned nothing of any value.Douglas Coupland Fairly Sayings By Douglas Coupland: I'd sooner have died than admit that the most valuable thing I owned was a
Any first rate novel or story must have in it the strength of a dozen fairly good stories that have been sacrificed to it. A good workman can't be a cheap workman; he can't be stingy about wasting material, and he cannot compromise. Excerpt taken from On the Art of Fiction by Willa Cather circa 1920.Willa Cather Fairly Sayings By Willa Cather: Any first rate novel or story must have in it the strength of a dozen
I mean, we're all going to die. We know that on an intellectual level. We figure it out when we're still fairly young, and it scares us so badly that we convince ourselves we're immortal for more than a decade afterwards.Jim Butcher Fairly Sayings By Jim Butcher: I mean, we're all going to die. We know that on an intellectual level. We
I remember that one day, when we were in a car tooling along at top speed,we crashed into a cyclist, an apparently very young and very pretty girl. Her head was almost totally ripped off by the wheels. For a long time, we were parked a few yards beyond without getting out, fully absorbed in the sight of the corpse. The horror and despair at so much bloody flesh, nauseating in part, and in part very beautiful, was fairly equivalent to our usual impression upon seeing one another.Georges Bataille Fairly Sayings By Georges Bataille: I remember that one day, when we were in a car tooling along at top
She told him ... how her heart had fairly skipped a beat when she'd seen him standing in the middle of the road dressed as a true Highland warrior.
"If I hadna been in love wi' you already, I'd have fallen in love wi' you then."
He grinned, his whiskery face unbearably bonnie even with its cuts and bruises. "So you like the sight of me in a pladdie, aye?"
"Aye
and wi' braids in your hair." She leaned down and kissed him. "But I think red paint looks silly.
Pamela Clare Fairly Sayings By Pamela Clare: She told him ... how her heart had fairly skipped a beat when she'd seen
As far as my experience goes, men of genius are fairly gifted with the social qualities; and in this age, there appears to be a fellow-feeling among them, which had not heretofore been developed. As men, they ask nothing better than to be on equal terms with their fellow-men; and as authors, they have thrown aside their proverbial jealousy, and acknowledge a generous brotherhood.Nathaniel Hawthorne Fairly Sayings By Nathaniel Hawthorne: As far as my experience goes, men of genius are fairly gifted with the social
At any rate, during the few hours when the depressive state itself eased off long enough to permit the luxury of concentration, I had recently filled this vacuum with fairly extensive reading and I had absorbed many fascinating and troubling factsWilliam Styron Fairly Sayings By William Styron: At any rate, during the few hours when the depressive state itself eased off long
For most of Wall Street's history, stock trading was fairly straightforward: buyers and sellers gathered on exchange floors and dickered until they struck a deal.Charles Duhigg Fairly Sayings By Charles Duhigg: For most of Wall Street's history, stock trading was fairly straightforward: buyers and sellers gathered
Good comes to those who lend money generously and conduct their business fairly. - Psalm 112:5Gary Chapman Fairly Sayings By Gary Chapman: Good comes to those who lend money generously and conduct their business fairly. - Psalm
I certainly play people on the edge quite a lot. I am interested in what makes people odd and what makes them different. In life I try to play the edges. I have a horror of the herd. There are many, many different sorts of people. A lot of people are fairly uninteresting. I want to play the interesting ones. The villains are always more interesting to portray. Shakespeare knew that.Jeremy Irons Fairly Sayings By Jeremy Irons: I certainly play people on the edge quite a lot. I am interested in what
Bureaucracies public and private appear
for whatever historical reasons
to be organized in such a way as to guarantee that a significant proportion of actors will not be able to perform their tasks as expected. It's in this sense that I've said one can fairly say that bureaucracies are utopian forms of organization. After all, is this not what we always say of utopians: that they have a naive faith in the perfectibility of human nature and refuse to deal with humans as they actually are? Which is, are we not also told, what leads them to set impossible standards and then blame the individuals for not living up to them?
David Graeber Fairly Sayings By David Graeber: Bureaucracies public and private appearfor whatever historical reasonsto be organized in such a way as
I am fairly tired
bored beyond endurance
by the world we live in, and its ideals, and am ready to say so, not violently, but kindly, as one rubs salt into the back of a flogged sailor as though one loved him.
Henry Adams Fairly Sayings By Henry Adams: I am fairly tiredbored beyond enduranceby the world we live in, and its ideals, and
People ask me, How would you do as a contestant on the show? And I tell them I would do fairly well among senior citizens, but against a good thirty-year-old I would have trouble because I cannot recall information as quickly as I used to. You used to say something and I would go, boom, right away, very sharp. Now it's like, Oh, yes, but wait a minute, uh, uh ...Alex Trebek Fairly Sayings By Alex Trebek: People ask me, How would you do as a contestant on the show? And I
I have a suggestion that I think would help fight serious crime. Signs. There are lots of signs for minor infractions: No Smoking, Stay Off the Grass, Keep Out, and they seem to work fairly well. I think we should also have signs for major crimes: Murder Strictly Prohibited, NO Raping People, Thank You for Not Kidnapping Anyone. It's certainly worth a try. I'm convinced Watergate would never have happened if there had just been a sign in the Oval Office that said, Malfeasance of Office Is Strictly Against the Law, or Thank You for Not Undermining the Constitution.George Carlin Fairly Sayings By George Carlin: I have a suggestion that I think would help fight serious crime. Signs. There are
The American servicemen and women of the Guard and Reserve leave their jobs, their spouses and their children to wear the uniform that defends our country. This selfless commitment should be honored by businesses across Massachusetts as we work to ensure they are treated fairly while they balance their employment responsibilities and obligations to the armed services. No business should ever put the bottom line ahead of America's front line.Mitt Romney Fairly Sayings By Mitt Romney: The American servicemen and women of the Guard and Reserve leave their jobs, their spouses
If I had to compare any of the two, I'd compare the first one in Edmonton, the first one here in New York because it had been so long in New York since we had won. Obviously, being the first time to ever win the cup in Edmonton, they were fairly similar in that regard.Mark Messier Fairly Sayings By Mark Messier: If I had to compare any of the two, I'd compare the first one in
I work in several different groups of pictures which act on and with each other - ranging from several abstracted manners to a form for the surreal. I have been called a preacher - but, in reality, I'm more generally philosophical. I have never made an abstracted photograph without content. An educated background in Zen influences all of my photographs. It has been said that my work resembles, more closely than any photographer, Le Douanier Rousseau - working in a fairly isolated area and feeding mostly on myself - I feel that I am a primitive photographer.Ralph Eugene Meatyard Fairly Sayings By Ralph Eugene Meatyard: I work in several different groups of pictures which act on and with each other
Defending her scandalized ex-husband had cost Jenna Wheeler's family greatly in the suburban standings - but the murder of Haley McWaid must have made life here fairly untenable. ParentsHarlan Coben Fairly Sayings By Harlan Coben: Defending her scandalized ex-husband had cost Jenna Wheeler's family greatly in the suburban standings -
My journalist sensibilities have guided me toward the types of projects I've gone for, even though the projects have been fairly diverse. It always has to have that interesting to attract me, I think.Rhianna Pratchett Fairly Sayings By Rhianna Pratchett: My journalist sensibilities have guided me toward the types of projects I've gone for, even
Two men, one fairly dragging the other along, suddenly entered the clearing and, their eyes trained behind them, ran headlong into the owl's creation and knocked it, every maple branch and every twig of dogwood, to the ground in a splintering crash. The owl fell backward, devastated.Colin Meloy Fairly Sayings By Colin Meloy: Two men, one fairly dragging the other along, suddenly entered the clearing and, their eyes
Many of us shrink from judicial execution of even the most horrible human criminals, while we cheerfully countenance the shooting without trial of fairly mild animal pests. Indeed we kill members of other harmless species as a means of recreation and amusement. A human foetus, with no more human feeling than an amoeba, enjoys a reverence and legal protection far in excess of those granted to an adult chimpanzee. Yet the chimp feels and thinks and - according to recent experimental evidence - may even be capable of learning a form of human language.Richard Dawkins Fairly Sayings By Richard Dawkins: Many of us shrink from judicial execution of even the most horrible human criminals, while
Why is it that some people in the world get to wake up in beautiful houses with fairly normal parents and enough food in the fridge while the rest of us have to get by on the scraps the universe throws at us? And we gobble them up, so grateful. What the hell are we grateful for?Heather Demetrios Fairly Sayings By Heather Demetrios: Why is it that some people in the world get to wake up in beautiful
No mirror can highlight the beauty within you than your own eyes. No eyes can fairly judge your appearance than your own pride.Gloria D. Gonsalves Fairly Sayings By Gloria D. Gonsalves: No mirror can highlight the beauty within you than your own eyes. No eyes can
I don't know for a fact, but I feel fairly certain that the first person who described a movie as 'character driven' had to have been a producer or studio executive.Steve Erickson Fairly Sayings By Steve Erickson: I don't know for a fact, but I feel fairly certain that the first person
Having covered some half a hundred cities, towns, villages, and wide spots in the road during the last tow years, George and I fairly wallowed in the comfort of our own home base.Martin Milner Fairly Sayings By Martin Milner: Having covered some half a hundred cities, towns, villages, and wide spots in the road
I have no problems with buying tampons. I am a fairly modern man. But apparently they're not a "proper" present. "Happy birthday, mum!"Jimmy Carr Fairly Sayings By Jimmy Carr: I have no problems with buying tampons. I am a fairly modern man. But apparently
Many women cut back what had to be done at home by redefining what the house, the marriage and, sometimes, what the child needs. One woman described a fairly common pattern: I do my half. I do half of his half, and the rest doesn't get done.Arlie Russell Hochschild Fairly Sayings By Arlie Russell Hochschild: Many women cut back what had to be done at home by redefining what the
What's to rationalize? You mean you shouldn't pray if you haven't got your s
t together? This is another fairly common misconception of faith, which is that people who go to church, or people who pray, or people who talk about their religion must be, somehow more pious or ethically rigorous or have more morally cleansed lifestyle. The high correlation is supposed to be between faith and your search, the depth of your search, your willingness to try, your willingness to admit error, your hope and belief in the ultimate meaning and value of that search.' - Timothy Shriver
J. Randy Taraborrelli Fairly Sayings By J. Randy Taraborrelli: What's to rationalize? You mean you shouldn't pray if you haven't got your st together?
It's a fairly common phenomenon of London life - people having fully developed critiques of books they haven't read and films they haven't seen. I'd probably include myself in that.Peter Baynham Fairly Sayings By Peter Baynham: It's a fairly common phenomenon of London life - people having fully developed critiques of
I'm always looking to find order within the chaos. And sometimes when my life gets fairly chaotic, I'll take a walk outside. I think about the order and the perfection of galaxies of planets in orbit and traveling around space and thinking how chaotic the wars and divorces and riots on our planet must look from outer space.Jon Foreman Fairly Sayings By Jon Foreman: I'm always looking to find order within the chaos. And sometimes when my life gets
Choas errupted amoung the watchers. They didn't think it was over at all. "He cheated! He used fire!"
"No, he won fairly enough!"
Michelle Paver Fairly Sayings By Michelle Paver: Choas errupted amoung the watchers. They didn't think it was over at all. "He cheated!
I have a fairly normal domestic life.Peter Capaldi Fairly Sayings By Peter Capaldi: I have a fairly normal domestic life.
I never said I wouldn't come - only that I understood why you didn't want me to come.'
'You led me to believe you wouldn't be here. That you understood that I needed time to grasp the fact of your existence and I did not wish to do so in a public manner.' She fairly spit the words. 'Under the eyes of everyone in the ton. [ ... ] You lulled me into a false sense of well-being. Deliberately, I might add.'
'Perhaps. And while I rather like the idea of lulling you into anything, I did not lie to you.
Victoria Alexander Fairly Sayings By Victoria Alexander: I never said I wouldn't come - only that I understood why you didn't want
I've certainly stayed a marginal figure, though I became a member of the "surveillance committee" fairly early on. I can actually live pretty well with this, because I'm allowed to work in peace - except when I have to give strings of interviews ... And also, I've never sought a position of power in the music business. I became a teacher not so as to found a Kagel School, but to transmit knowledge. My work as a composer should be the only yardstick by which my contribution can be measured.Mauricio Kagel Fairly Sayings By Mauricio Kagel: I've certainly stayed a marginal figure, though I became a member of the "surveillance committee"

Ours is not a dumb species. We have put a man on the moon. We have unlocked the secrets of the human genome. We have discovered how to take stem cells and coax them into becoming brain cells, heart muscle, liver tissue - any organ of the human body that needs repair. These are our miracles, and there are more. Yet we have not yet found a way to do the simplest things: To live in peace. To stop killing each other when we disagree. To distribute that which is good in life freely and fairly.Neale Donald Walsch Fairly Sayings By Neale Donald Walsch: Ours is not a dumb species. We have put a man on the moon. We
Dance was one of the things that led me to acting even though I say I fell in love with acting fairly early on and its true but around 16 and 17 I got heavily into dance but I think I just came into it too late and I was never going to be really great at it so I let it go and the dance led to more acting classes.Naomi Watts Fairly Sayings By Naomi Watts: Dance was one of the things that led me to acting even though I say
I think at a certain age I became conscious of the power of words. And it was fairly late. I was kind of a goofball - but I was always subconsciously thinking about issues.Barack Obama Fairly Sayings By Barack Obama: I think at a certain age I became conscious of the power of words. And
The worst sin in the world is when the poor try to rob the poor. the enemy is fairly obvious, why weaken our ranks?Charles Bukowski Fairly Sayings By Charles Bukowski: The worst sin in the world is when the poor try to rob the poor.
I'm fairly certain I've been defined by society as nothing more than a wallflower these days." Drawing her closer, he tipped her chin up and met her gaze. "You may be known as a wallflower to society, Wilhelmina, but I'll always think of you as the most extraordinary woman I've ever known." With that, and before she could do more than let out the tiniest of sighs, he leaned closer to her, his breath warm against her face right before he claimed her lips with his own. JustJen Turano Fairly Sayings By Jen Turano: I'm fairly certain I've been defined by society as nothing more than a wallflower these
I've written five books, a book every three years. I'm fairly lazy and it doesn't take that much ... people who are not lazy are Isaac Asimov ...Ethan Canin Fairly Sayings By Ethan Canin: I've written five books, a book every three years. I'm fairly lazy and it doesn't
I read every book there was on jazz, about the original players - King Oliver, Buddy Bolden and all those groups. At one time I was fairly well schooled in that ... I could tell you who played where and when, historically, way before my time.Clint Eastwood Fairly Sayings By Clint Eastwood: I read every book there was on jazz, about the original players - King Oliver,
Using these unnamed sources, if done properly, carefully and fairly, provides more accountability in government.Bob Woodward Fairly Sayings By Bob Woodward: Using these unnamed sources, if done properly, carefully and fairly, provides more accountability in government.
As Mr. R. U. Sayee has well said: 'It should be clear a priori that fairy lore must have developed as a result of modifications and accretions received in different countries and at many periods, though we must not overlook the part played by tradition in providing a mould that to some extent determines the nature of later additions.' It must also be self-evident that a great deal of confusion has been caused by the assumption that some spirit-types were fairies which in a more definite sense are certainly not of elfin provenance. In some epochs, indeed, Faerie appears to have been regarded as a species of limbo to which all 'pagan' spirits - to say nothing of defeated gods, monsters, and demons - could be banished, along with the personnel of Olympus and the rout of witchcraft. Such types, however, are usually fairly easy of detection.Lewis Spence Fairly Sayings By Lewis Spence: As Mr. R. U. Sayee has well said: 'It should be clear a priori that
There is, indeed, nothing more annoying than to be, for instance, wealthy, of good family, nice-looking, fairly intelligent, and even good-natured, and yet to have no talents, no special faculty, no peculiarity even, not one idea of one's own, to be precisely like other people.Fyodor Dostoyevsky Fairly Sayings By Fyodor Dostoyevsky: There is, indeed, nothing more annoying than to be, for instance, wealthy, of good family,
Hark ye, friend; you have been a burgher of this great city. What matter whether you have lived in it but five years or three? If you have observed the laws of the corporation, the length or shortness of the time makes no difference. Where is the hardship, then, if Nature, that planted you here, orders your removal? You cannot say you are sent off by a tyrant or an unjust judge. No; you quit the stage as fairly as a player does that has his discharge from the master of the revels. But I have only gone through three acts, and not held out till the end of the fifth, you say. Well, but in life three acts make the play entire. He that ordered the first scene now gives the sign for shutting up the last. You are neither accountable for one nor the other.Marcus Aurelius Fairly Sayings By Marcus Aurelius: Hark ye, friend; you have been a burgher of this great city. What matter whether
The boys still sang their horrible song about Linda. Sometimes, too, they laughed at him for being so ragged. When he tore his clothes, Linda did not know how to mend them. In the Other Place, she told him, people threw away clothes with holes in them and got new ones. "Rags, rags!" the boys used to shout at him. "But I can read," he said to himself, "and they can't. They don't even know what reading is." It was fairly easy, if he thought hard enough about the reading, to pretend that he didn't mind when they made fun of him. He asked Linda to give him the book again.
The more the boys pointed and sang, the harder he read.
Aldous Huxley Fairly Sayings By Aldous Huxley: The boys still sang their horrible song about Linda. Sometimes, too, they laughed at him
I believe people ought to be treated fairly under the law. I see no reason why if the marriage contract conveys certain things that if you want to marry another woman that you can do that and have a contract. But the thing is is the religious connotation of marriage that has been going on for thousands of years, I still want to preserve that. And you probably could have both. You could have both traditional marriage, which I believe in. And then you could also have the neutrality of the law that allows people to have contracts with another.Rand Paul Fairly Sayings By Rand Paul: I believe people ought to be treated fairly under the law. I see no reason
As time goes on, I get more and more convinced that the right method of investment is to put fairly large sums into enterprises which one thinks one knows something about and in the management of which one thoroughly believes.John Maynard Keynes Fairly Sayings By John Maynard Keynes: As time goes on, I get more and more convinced that the right method of
She was getting over it. She could feel it. Maybe she would never entirely be over him, but she thought she was beginning to see that a fairly normal future could be hers again.Rebecca Flowers Fairly Sayings By Rebecca Flowers: She was getting over it. She could feel it. Maybe she would never entirely be
There is not much we can say with absolute confidence about the early church, but we can be fairly sure that the first Christians would not have dreamed of making a likeness of Jesus.Neil MacGregor Fairly Sayings By Neil MacGregor: There is not much we can say with absolute confidence about the early church, but
In a sense, 'Twin Peaks' never really went away. They've got a 'Twin Peaks' convention up in Washington every year, and I'm pretty much recognized on a fairly regular basis from 'Twin Peaks,' so I feel like it never really got too far away.Michael J. Anderson Fairly Sayings By Michael J. Anderson: In a sense, 'Twin Peaks' never really went away. They've got a 'Twin Peaks' convention
I want to explore the art of pleasure in Italy, the art of devotion in India and, in Indonesia, the art of balancing the two. It was only later, after admitting this dream, that I noticed the happy coincidence that all these countries begin with the letter I. A fairly auspicious sign, it seemed, on a voyage of self-discovery.Elizabeth Gilbert Fairly Sayings By Elizabeth Gilbert: I want to explore the art of pleasure in Italy, the art of devotion in
When I released my first record, I was really in the middle of having made the decision to follow the clinical psychology path, which is competitive, rigorous, and fairly conservative.Autre Ne Veut Fairly Sayings By Autre Ne Veut: When I released my first record, I was really in the middle of having made
See the exquisite contrast of the types of mind! The pragmatist clings to facts and concreteness, observes truth at its work in particular cases, and generalises. Truth, for him, becomes a class-name for all sorts of definite working-values in experience. For the rationalist it remains a pure abstraction, to the bare name of which we must defer. When the pragmatist undertakes to show in detail just why we must defer, the rationalist is unable to recognise the concretes from which his own abstraction is taken. He accuses us of denying truth; whereas we have only sought to trace exactly why people follow it and always ought to follow it. Your typical ultra-abstractions fairly shudders at concreteness: other things equal, he positively prefers the pale and spectral. If the two universes were offered, he would always choose the skinny outline rather than the rich thicket of reality. It is so much purer, clearer, nobler.William James Fairly Sayings By William James: See the exquisite contrast of the types of mind! The pragmatist clings to facts and
The French expression 'cul-de-sac' describes what the Baudelaire orphans found when they reached the end of the dark hallway, and like all French expressions, it is most easily understood when you translate each French word into English. The word 'de,' for instance is a very common French world, I would be certain that 'de' means 'of.' The word 'sac' is less common, but I can fairly certain that it means something like 'mysterious circumstances.' And the word 'cul' is such a rare French word that I am forced to guess at its translation, and my guess is that in this case it would mean 'At the end of the dark hallway, the Baudelaire children found an assortment,' so that the expression 'cul-de-sac' here means 'At the end of the dark hallway, the Baudelaire children found an assortment of mysterious circumstances.Lemony Snicket Fairly Sayings By Lemony Snicket: The French expression 'cul-de-sac' describes what the Baudelaire orphans found when they reached the end
I am fairly concise when I work and I work quickly because I think work is done better in a high gear than done our in a gear when everyone's exhausted. Get focused, do it!Twyla Tharp Fairly Sayings By Twyla Tharp: I am fairly concise when I work and I work quickly because I think work
I've never known a man to be beaten fairly, nor one to be elected, unfairly.Anne Ellis Fairly Sayings By Anne Ellis: I've never known a man to be beaten fairly, nor one to be elected, unfairly.
I will be a wise and tolerant monarch, dispencing justice fairly, and only setting nightmares to rip out the winds of the evil and the wicked. Or just anybody that I don't like.Neil Gaiman Fairly Sayings By Neil Gaiman: I will be a wise and tolerant monarch, dispencing justice fairly, and only setting nightmares
The way to find justice is to deal fairly with other people and not worry about how they deal with you.Robert A. Heinlein Fairly Sayings By Robert A. Heinlein: The way to find justice is to deal fairly with other people and not worry
It's easy to see from commercials the sorts of activities I should presumably be engaged in, but I'm fairly certain that American manhood is vague, internally contradictory and largely nonsensical.Tycho Brahe Fairly Sayings By Tycho Brahe: It's easy to see from commercials the sorts of activities I should presumably be engaged
This sense of power is the highest and best of pleasures when the belief on which it is founded is a true belief, and has been fairly earned by investigation.William Kingdon Clifford Fairly Sayings By William Kingdon Clifford: This sense of power is the highest and best of pleasures when the belief on
(1) a sound mass base, (2) a sound Party organization, (3) a fairly strong Red Army, (4) terrain favourable to military operations, and (5) economic resources sufficient for sustenance.Mao Zedong Fairly Sayings By Mao Zedong: (1) a sound mass base, (2) a sound Party organization, (3) a fairly strong Red
When facts are misrepresented in order to serve an opinion or to promote it aggressively - especially an opinion which demonstrably results in people being victimized, persecuted, and their lives destroyed in many places in the world, it should be a matter of concern to everyone who wants people to be treated equally, fairly and justly.Christina Engela Fairly Sayings By Christina Engela: When facts are misrepresented in order to serve an opinion or to promote it aggressively
If both the physiological and the safety needs are fairly well gratified, then there will emerge love and affection and belongingness needs, and the whole cycle already described will repeat itself with this new centre. Now the person will feel keenlAbraham Maslow Fairly Sayings By Abraham Maslow: If both the physiological and the safety needs are fairly well gratified, then there will
Writers divide fairly cleanly into those who only work through what they hear and those who are more visual. I am the latter, where I lie down on my office floor and play scenes through my head to - cinematically, several times with different elements - to see what works. I can't write a scene until I can see it.Jojo Moyes Fairly Sayings By Jojo Moyes: Writers divide fairly cleanly into those who only work through what they hear and those
Famine was quite deliberately employed as an instrument of national policy, as the last means of breaking the resistance of the peasantry to the new system where they are divorced from personal ownership of the land and obligated to work on the conditions which the state may demand from them ... This famine may fairly be called political because it was not the result of any overwhelming natural catastrophe or such complete exhaustions of the country's resources in foreign and civil wars ...William Henry Chamberlin Fairly Sayings By William Henry Chamberlin: Famine was quite deliberately employed as an instrument of national policy, as the last means
What we should be teaching are the problems and holes and I think there are legitimate problems and holes in the theory of evolution. And what we need to do is to present those fairly from a scientific point of view. And we should lay out areas in which the evidence supports evolution and the areas in the evidence that does not.Rick Santorum Fairly Sayings By Rick Santorum: What we should be teaching are the problems and holes and I think there are
We have played so well that the guys have really made my job fairly easy.Ricky Ponting Fairly Sayings By Ricky Ponting: We have played so well that the guys have really made my job fairly easy.
Conscience signifies that knowledge which a man hath of his own thoughts and actions; and because, if a man judgeth fairly of his actions by comparing them with the law of God, his mind will approve or condemn him; this knowledge or conscience may be both an accuser and a judge.Jonathan Swift Fairly Sayings By Jonathan Swift: Conscience signifies that knowledge which a man hath of his own thoughts and actions; and
Life is the acceptance of responsibilities or their evasion; it is a business of meeting obligations or avoiding them. To every man the choice is continually being offered, and by the manner of his choosing you may fairly measure him.Ben Ames Williams Fairly Sayings By Ben Ames Williams: Life is the acceptance of responsibilities or their evasion; it is a business of meeting
How can U fairly assess someone from the outside looking in ... majority of the times you will be wrong.Carmelo Anthony Fairly Sayings By Carmelo Anthony: How can U fairly assess someone from the outside looking in ... majority of the

Critics do not have the satisfaction of working on things that actually exist, like sick dogs or dental cavities. So they are tempted to pluck a virtue out of necessity and claim that they toil in an altogether superior realm, that of the imagination. This implies, rather oddly, that things which do not exist are inevitably more precious than those that do, which is a fairly devastating comment on the latter. What kind of a world is it in which possibility is unquestionably preferable to actuality?Terry Eagleton Fairly Sayings By Terry Eagleton: Critics do not have the satisfaction of working on things that actually exist, like sick
You have to be objective about money to use it fairly. It doesn't make you any better or any more useful than any other person. Even if you use your money to help people ... that doesn't make you better than somebody who has no money but is sympathetic and genuinely loving to fellow human beings.Keith Haring Fairly Sayings By Keith Haring: You have to be objective about money to use it fairly. It doesn't make you
I'm a fairly fast, but sloppy writer, so I'm a big fan of re-writing, and re-writing again.Jeannette Walls Fairly Sayings By Jeannette Walls: I'm a fairly fast, but sloppy writer, so I'm a big fan of re-writing, and
It has been jestingly said that the works of John Paul Richter are almost unintelligible to any but the Germans, and even to some of them. A worthy German, just before Richter's death, edited a complete edition of his works, in which one particular passage fairly puzzled him. Determined to have it explained at the source, he went to John Paul himself. The author's reply was very characteristic: "My good friend, when I wrote that passage, God and I knew what it meant; it is possible that God knows it still; but as for me, I have totally forgotten."Jean Paul Fairly Sayings By Jean Paul: It has been jestingly said that the works of John Paul Richter are almost unintelligible
I play football once or twice a week. I eat pretty healthy. I'm in fairly good shape most of the time.James McAvoy Fairly Sayings By James McAvoy: I play football once or twice a week. I eat pretty healthy. I'm in fairly
If there were an exact and universal scale of punishments and crimes, we would have a fairly reliable and shared instrument to measure the degree of tyranny and liberty, of the basic humanity or malice of the different nations.Cesare Beccaria Fairly Sayings By Cesare Beccaria: If there were an exact and universal scale of punishments and crimes, we would have
Every writer knows that unless you were born gifted with either supreme confidence or outsize ego, handing in your work holds, in some cases, admitted terror. If that's too strong, at least fairly high anxiety.Dick Cavett Fairly Sayings By Dick Cavett: Every writer knows that unless you were born gifted with either supreme confidence or outsize
I always liked to be fairly simple because you could get more players ready to play quickly. If you lose players to free agency, injuries, etc., it is easier to get young players ready to play in a less complex system.Tony Dungy Fairly Sayings By Tony Dungy: I always liked to be fairly simple because you could get more players ready to
I'm a fairly quiet and private person. So I haven't sought publicity.Mark Walter Fairly Sayings By Mark Walter: I'm a fairly quiet and private person. So I haven't sought publicity.
No screen?" She nudged him away, scanned the walls. "Seriously? What kind of place is this?"
"The sort where people use bedrooms for sex and sleep, which is exactly waht I have in mind." To prove it, he tumbled her onto the bed.
It squeaked.
"What is that? Did you hear that? Is there a farm animal in here?"
"I'm fairly certain they keep those outside. It's the bed." He tugged her shirt over her head.
Testing, she lifted her hips, let them fall. "Oh, for God's sake. We can't do this on a talking bed. Everybody in the house will know what's going on in here."
Enjoying himself, he nuzzled at her throat. "I believe they already suspect we have sex."
"Maybe, but that's different than having the bed yell out, 'Whoopee!'"
Was it any wonder he adored her? he thought.

I first met my husband when I was 15. He was very cool, in a band, all that kind of thing, but he took a long time to grow up. Our paths crossed again 10 years later, and after about two weeks I knew that was it. I'm glad I met him when I did, even though I was fairly young. Because I think sometimes you can crystallise into singledom.Natascha McElhone Fairly Sayings By Natascha McElhone: I first met my husband when I was 15. He was very cool, in a
Common sense is the most fairly distributed thing in the world, for each one thinks he is so well-endowed with it that even those who are hardest to satisfy in all other matters are not in the habit of desiring more of it than they already have.Rene Descartes Fairly Sayings By Rene Descartes: Common sense is the most fairly distributed thing in the world, for each one thinks
The point of Christian scholarship is not recognition by standards established in the wider culture. The point is to praise God with the mind. Such efforts will lead to the kind of intellectual integrity that sometimes receives recognition. But for the Christian that recognition is only a fairly inconsequential by-product. The real point is valuing what God has made, believing that the creation is as "good" as he said it was, and exploring the fullest dimensions of what it meant for the Son of God to "become flesh and dwell among us." Ultimately, intellectual work of this sort is its own reward, because it is focused on the only One whose recognition is important, the One before whom all hearts are open.Mark A. Noll Fairly Sayings By Mark A. Noll: The point of Christian scholarship is not recognition by standards established in the wider culture.

I have this belief that Donald Trump keeps floating the idea that he will quit the party and run as an independent if the Republican Party does not treat him fairly.Rachel Maddow Fairly Sayings By Rachel Maddow: I have this belief that Donald Trump keeps floating the idea that he will quit
Do things fairly, especially with your children.

Looking back to the earlier centuries of the church, most of the great teachers were also bishops and vice versa. It's only fairly recently that the church has had this great divide.N. T. Wright Fairly Sayings By N. T. Wright: Looking back to the earlier centuries of the church, most of the great teachers were
The indispensability of reason does not imply that individual people are always rational or are unswayed by passion and illusion. It only means that people are capable of reason, and that a community of people who choose to perfect this faculty and to exercise it openly and fairly can collectively reason their way to sounder conclusions in the long run. As Lincoln observed, you can fool all of the people some of the time, and you can fool some of the people all of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.Steven Pinker Fairly Sayings By Steven Pinker: The indispensability of reason does not imply that individual people are always rational or are
There is nothing harder to estimate than a writer's time, nothing harder to keep track of. There are moments - moments of sustained creation - when his time is fairly valuable; and there are hours and hours when a writer's time isn't worth the paper he is not writing anything on.E.B. White Fairly Sayings By E.B. White: There is nothing harder to estimate than a writer's time, nothing harder to keep track
He indeed who believes that by studying isolated histories he can acquire a fairly just view of history as a whole, is, as it seems to me, much in the case of one, who, after having looked at the dissevered limbs of an animal once alive and beautiful, fancies he has been as good as an eyewitness of the creature itself in all its action and grace.Polybius Fairly Sayings By Polybius: He indeed who believes that by studying isolated histories he can acquire a fairly just
