We're at a real time of transition here in terms of future aviation. What's going to be manned? What's going to be unmanned? There are those who see [the JSF] as the last manned fighter/bomber. And I'm one that's inclined to believe it-whether it's right or not.Michael Mullen Whether Or Not Sayings By Michael Mullen: We're at a real time of transition here in terms of future aviation.

The bigots, whether they are of the Islamist variety or the anti-Muslim variety, essentially agree on a few matters. One is their belief that Islam itself - not Islamism - is a supremacist ideology that is here to take over the world; another is that, therefore, Muslims and non-Muslims can never live equally and peacefully together, but must separate into religiously defined entities.Sam Harris Whether Or Not Sayings By Sam Harris: The bigots, whether they are of the Islamist variety or the anti-Muslim variety, essentially agree
For it is a most extraordinary, though common, phenomenon to find that perfectly virtuous and upright people often like to be thought just a little wicked, whereas bad people are totally indifferent for the most part as to whether or not anyone thinks them good or not.E.F. Benson Whether Or Not Sayings By E.F. Benson: For it is a most extraordinary, though common, phenomenon to find that perfectly virtuous and
A person, for example, reads in adulthood a book that is important for him, and it makes him say, "How could I have lived without reading it!" and also, "What a pity I did not read it in my youth!" Well, these statements do not have much meaning, especially the second, because after he has read that book, his life becomes the life of a person who has read that book, and it is of little importance whether he read it early or late, because now his life before that reading also assumes a form shaped by that reading.Italo Calvino Whether Or Not Sayings By Italo Calvino: A person, for example, reads in adulthood a book that is important for him, and
No traveler, whether a tree lover or not, will ever forget his first walk in a sugar-pine forest. The majestic crowns approaching one another make a glorious canopy, through the feathery arches of which the sunbeams pour, silvering the needles and gilding the stately columns and the ground into a scene of enchantment.John Muir Whether Or Not Sayings By John Muir: No traveler, whether a tree lover or not, will ever forget his first walk in
Individual guarantees stated in writing in the constitution are of no use to a nation if it is not the people, but a third party, whether government or trade-union, that fixes prices and wagesFaustino Ballve Whether Or Not Sayings By Faustino Ballve: Individual guarantees stated in writing in the constitution are of no use to a nation
It does not matter whether you are a theist or atheist, what matters is sincerity, forgiveness, and compassion.Dalai Lama Whether Or Not Sayings By Dalai Lama: It does not matter whether you are a theist or atheist, what matters is sincerity,
If we look more closely, we see that any violent display of power, whether political or religious, produces an outburst of folly in a large part of mankind; indeed, this seems actually to be a psychological and sociological law: the power of some needs the folly of others. It is not that certain human capacities, intellectual capacities for instance, become stunted of destroyed, but rather that the upsurge of power makes such an overwhelming impression that men are deprived of their independent judgment, and ... give up trying to assess the new state of affairs for themselves.Dietrich Bonhoeffer Whether Or Not Sayings By Dietrich Bonhoeffer: If we look more closely, we see that any violent display of power, whether political
The theory of positivity teaches us to, "always look on the bright side" and to, "point out the bright side to others". However, any highly empathic individual will know, that this mindset alienates us from other people. What connects us with other people is the ability to identify with what they are feeling and thinking, regardless of whether or not we've actually been in their place before. If you want to point someone out to the light, first you need to get into their dark cave with them, light a candle, and say, "Hey, I'm here with you and look, remember what the light feels like?" That's the kind of positivity that actually bears real change in people, in the world.C. JoyBell C. Whether Or Not Sayings By C. JoyBell C.: The theory of positivity teaches us to, "always look on the bright side" and to,
The result of the voyage does not depend on the speed of the ship, but on whether or not it keeps a true course.Albert Schweitzer Whether Or Not Sayings By Albert Schweitzer: The result of the voyage does not depend on the speed of the ship, but

This hobbit was a very well-to-do hobbit, and his name was Baggins. The Bagginses had lived in the neighbourhood of The Hill for time out of mind, and people considered them very respectable, not only because most of them were rich, but also because they never had any adventures or did anything unexpected: you could tell what a Baggins would say on any question without the bother of asking him. This is a story of how a Baggins had an adventure, and found himself doing and saying things altogether unexpected. He may have lost the neighbours' respect, but he gained - well, you will see whether he gained anything in the end.J.R.R. Tolkien Whether Or Not Sayings By J.R.R. Tolkien: This hobbit was a very well-to-do hobbit, and his name was Baggins. The Bagginses had
Whether we know it or not, our minds and hearts are populated by all the characters we will ever need - though we may disassemble them and rearrange the parts into composites for variation.David Corbett Whether Or Not Sayings By David Corbett: Whether we know it or not, our minds and hearts are populated by all the
Now, there are two different attitudes towards learning from others. One is the dogmatic attitude of transplanting everything, whether or not it is suited to our conditions. This is no good. The other attitude is to use our heads and learn those things that suit our conditions, that is, to absorb whatever experience is useful to us. That is the attitude we should adopt.Mao Zedong Whether Or Not Sayings By Mao Zedong: Now, there are two different attitudes towards learning from others. One is the dogmatic attitude
I don't even know if the sun will rise or whether I'll wake up in the morning. I don't know if God will grant me my next breath. So I choose to live on faith rather than knowledge - and accept whatever comes, welcome or not, bitter or sweet - all of it, a gift from God.Dan Millman Whether Or Not Sayings By Dan Millman: I don't even know if the sun will rise or whether I'll wake up in
The purpose of work is not to make money. The purpose of work is to make the workers, whether working stiffs or top executives, feel good about life.Ricardo Semler Whether Or Not Sayings By Ricardo Semler: The purpose of work is not to make money. The purpose of work is to
Everybody prays whether [you think] of it as praying or not. The odd silence you fall into when something very beautiful is happening or something very good or very bad. The ah-h-h-h! that sometimes floats up out of you as out of a Fourth of July crowd when the sky-rocket bursts over the water. The stammer of pain at somebody else s pain. The stammer of joy at somebody else's joy. Whatever words or sounds you use for sighing with over your own life. These are all prayers in their way.Frederick Buechner Whether Or Not Sayings By Frederick Buechner: Everybody prays whether [you think] of it as praying or not. The odd silence you
I have finally learned that I am as much a part of this country as those villagers. Whether they like it or not, my umbilical cord is buried in the earth of Vietnam just like theirs.Sherry Garland Whether Or Not Sayings By Sherry Garland: I have finally learned that I am as much a part of this country as
If black males are socialized from birth to embrace the notion that their manhood will be determined by whether or not they can dominate and control others and yet the political system they live within (imperialist white-supremacist capitalist patriarchy) prevents most of them from having access to socially acceptable positions of power and dominance, then they will claim their patriarchal manhood, through socially unacceptable channels. They will enact rituals of blood, of patriarchal manhood by using violence to dominate and control.Bell Hooks Whether Or Not Sayings By Bell Hooks: If black males are socialized from birth to embrace the notion that their manhood will
But the true threats to stability and peace are these nations that are not very transparent, that hide behind the-that don't let people in to take a look and see what they're up to. They're very kind of authoritarian regimes. The true threat is whether or not one of these people decide, peak of anger, try to hold us hostage, ourselves; the Israelis, for example, to whom we'll defend, offer our defenses; the South Koreans.George W. Bush Whether Or Not Sayings By George W. Bush: But the true threats to stability and peace are these nations that are not very
Consider that the simplest social interactions between two people requires performing an astonishing array of tasks: interpreting what the other person is saying; reading body language and facial expressions; smoothly taking turns talking and listening; responding to what the other person said; assessing whether you're being understood; determining whether you're well received, and, if not, figuring out how to improve or remove yourself from the situation. Think of what it takes to juggle all this at once! And that's just a one-to-one conversation. Now imagine the multitasking required in a group setting like a dinner party.
(p237)
Susan Cain Whether Or Not Sayings By Susan Cain: Consider that the simplest social interactions between two people requires performing an astonishing array of
Too many writers are trying to write with too shallow an education. Whether they go to college or not is immaterial ... a good writer needs a sense of the history of literature to be successful as a writer.James Kisner Whether Or Not Sayings By James Kisner: Too many writers are trying to write with too shallow an education. Whether they go
Our societies put into the category of the pathological what other cultures consider normal - the preponderance of pain - and put into the category of the normal and even the necessary what others see as exceptional - the feeling of happiness. The question is not whether we are more or less happy than our ancestors: our conception of happiness has changed, and to change utopias is to change constraints. But we are probably living in the world's first societies that make people unhappy not to be happy.Pascal Bruckner Whether Or Not Sayings By Pascal Bruckner: Our societies put into the category of the pathological what other cultures consider normal -
It is best to love first what you are fitted to love, I suppose: you must start somewhere and have some roots, and the soil of the Shire is deep. Still there are things deeper and higher; and not a gaffer could tend his garden in what he calls peace but for them, whether he knows about them or not. I am glad that I know about them, a little.J.R.R. Tolkien Whether Or Not Sayings By J.R.R. Tolkien: It is best to love first what you are fitted to love, I suppose: you
Although not yet routine, many cancer centers have the technology to sequence some or all of a patient's cancer genome. This can provide massive amounts of valuable information about your cancer, including whether you have genetic mutations and other abnormalities for which new drugs are available.Kathy Giusti Whether Or Not Sayings By Kathy Giusti: Although not yet routine, many cancer centers have the technology to sequence some or all
The question is, rather, whether or not America is to enter a new and distressing phase of history where men no longer pursue happiness but buy it.Kurt Vonnegut Jr. Whether Or Not Sayings By Kurt Vonnegut Jr.: The question is, rather, whether or not America is to enter a new and distressing
We need to be very careful when considering whether or not to change the constitution to accept same-sex marriage as this issue touches on the fundamentals of how we live.Shinzo Abe Whether Or Not Sayings By Shinzo Abe: We need to be very careful when considering whether or not to change the constitution
Helping others
I order you to assist any oppressed person, whether he is a Moslem or not.
Idries Shah Whether Or Not Sayings By Idries Shah: Helping othersI order you to assist any oppressed person, whether he is a Moslem or
Horror stories, whether about vampires, ghouls, or flesh-eating zombies, always seem to reflect some aspect of the tellers' own social lives, some terrifying potential, in the way they are accustomed to interact with each other, that they do not wish to acknowledge or confront, but also cannot help but talk about.David Graeber Whether Or Not Sayings By David Graeber: Horror stories, whether about vampires, ghouls, or flesh-eating zombies, always seem to reflect some aspect
That is, whether or not an act is considered deviant depends upon how it is labeled (defined) by other people. For example, in a well-known study of jazz musicians, Becker (1963) found marijuana use to be considered normal by the musicians, but labeled as illegal, deviant behavior by the larger society, and subject to sanctions like arrest, fines, and jail terms. Although labeling theory pertained to deviance generally, several studies focused on the mental patient experience in which persons once treated for mental illness found it difficult to shed the label of "former mental patient" even if the experience was in the past and the person supposedly cured (Scheff [1966] 1999).William C. Cockerham Whether Or Not Sayings By William C. Cockerham: That is, whether or not an act is considered deviant depends upon how it is
You are who you are, whether you like it or not, so why not like it?Sarah Addison Allen Whether Or Not Sayings By Sarah Addison Allen: You are who you are, whether you like it or not, so why not like
The history of science should not be an instrument to defend any kind of social or philosophic theory; it should be used only for its own purpose, to illustrate impartially the working of reason against unreason, the gradual unfolding of truth, in all its forms, whether pleasant or unpleasant, useful of useless, welcome or unwelcome.George Sarton Whether Or Not Sayings By George Sarton: The history of science should not be an instrument to defend any kind of social
Because noir isn't really a new thing at all. It's just a fairy tale with guns. Your hardscrabble detective is nothing more than a noble knight with a cigarette and a disease where his heart should be. He talks prettier, that's all. He's no less idealistic - there're good women and bad women, good jobs and bad jobs. Justice and truth are always worth seeking. He pulls his fedora down like the visor on a suit of armour. He serves his lord faithfully whether he wants to or not. And he is in thrall to the idea of a woman. It's just that in detective stories, women are usually dead before the curtain goes up. In fairy tales, they're usually alive.Catherynne M Valente Whether Or Not Sayings By Catherynne M Valente: Because noir isn't really a new thing at all. It's just a fairy tale with
If the gods exist, then it does not matter whether or not this is something that one knows.Alex Stein Whether Or Not Sayings By Alex Stein: If the gods exist, then it does not matter whether or not this is something
Who does vote for these dishonest shitheads? Who among us can be happy and proud of having all this innocent blood on our hands? Who are these swine? These flag-sucking half-wits who get fleeced and fooled by stupid little rich kids like George Bush?
They are the same ones who wanted to have Muhammad Ali locked up for refusing to kill gooks. They speak for all that is cruel and stupid and vicious in the American character. They are the racists and hate mongers among us -- they are the Ku Klux Klan. I piss down the throats of these Nazis.

And I am too old to worry about whether they like it or not. Fuck them.
Hunter S. Thompson Whether Or Not Sayings By Hunter S. Thompson: Who does vote for these dishonest shitheads? Who among us can be happy and proud
Of course you always had that detached quality as if you were playing a game without much concern over whether you won or lost, and now that you've lost the game, not lost but just quit playing, you have that rare sort of charm that usually only happens in very old or hopelessly sick people, the charm of the defeated.Tennessee Williams Whether Or Not Sayings By Tennessee Williams: Of course you always had that detached quality as if you were playing a game
Like most of the movies I have participated in before, it's not a far departure from my actual self. TJ is a Special Forces, hand-to-hand combat expert. He's got a big heart. He has a sense of duty that never ends, whether he is active duty or as you find him in Check Point, retired.Bill Goldberg Whether Or Not Sayings By Bill Goldberg: Like most of the movies I have participated in before, it's not a far departure
Mama parted with these Divine Secrets because I asked her to, Sidda thought. the reason I feel like crying, Sidda realized, is not just because this scrapbook is vulnerable, but because Mama, whether she knows it or not, has made herself so vulnerable to me.Rebecca Wells Whether Or Not Sayings By Rebecca Wells: Mama parted with these Divine Secrets because I asked her to, Sidda thought. the reason
INDECISION, n. The chief element of success; "for whereas," saith Sir Thomas Brewbold, "there is but one way to do nothing and divers way to do something, whereof, to a surety, only one is the right way, it followeth that he who from indecision standeth still hath not so many chances of going astray as he who pusheth forwards"
a most clear and satisfactory exposition on the matter.
"Your prompt decision to attack," said Genera Grant on a certain occasion to General Gordon Granger, "was admirable; you had but five minutes to make up your mind in."
"Yes, sir," answered the victorious subordinate, "it is a great thing to be know exactly what to do in an emergency. When in doubt whether to attack or retreat I never hesitate a moment
I toss us a copper."
"Do you mean to say that's what you did this time?"
"Yes, General; but for Heaven's sake don't reprimand me: I disobeyed the coin.
Ambrose Bierce Whether Or Not Sayings By Ambrose Bierce: INDECISION, n. The chief element of success; "for whereas," saith Sir Thomas Brewbold, "there is
Once shame touches your being at any point, even the most distant nerve is implicated, whether you know it or not; any fleeting encounter or random thought will rake up the anguish and add to it.Stefan Zweig Whether Or Not Sayings By Stefan Zweig: Once shame touches your being at any point, even the most distant nerve is implicated,
What we really have to do is stop the adjective before the job title - whether it's 'black actor,' a 'gay actor' or 'anything actor,' Everybody thinks that equality comes from identifying people, and that's not where equality comes from. Equality comes from treating everybody the same regardless of who they are. I hope the media and the press catches on to that because it's time to move out of 1992.Matthew Bomer Whether Or Not Sayings By Matthew Bomer: What we really have to do is stop the adjective before the job title -
There's always a crisis somewhere, and you get the satisfaction of solving the problem. And then, there's always the mystery of whether a program will work or not, and waiting for the reviews or seeing what the audience figures are.Rebecca Eaton Whether Or Not Sayings By Rebecca Eaton: There's always a crisis somewhere, and you get the satisfaction of solving the problem. And
Now you know you're going to have to play music for the label, you know you're going to have to get an opinion from the manager. Now, I'm so much more conscious and it bothers me. I try to find my way back to writing without being too analytical or not thinking about whether this is good or is it bad.Yukimi Nagano Whether Or Not Sayings By Yukimi Nagano: Now you know you're going to have to play music for the label, you know
You were born into a state of grace. It is impossible for you to leave it. You will die in a state of grace whether or not special words are spoken for you, or water or oil is poured upon your head. You share this blessing with the animals and all other living things. You cannot fall out of grace, nor can it be taken from you. You can ignore it. You can hold beliefs that blind you to its existence. You will still be graced but unable to perceive you own uniqueness and integrity, and blind also to other attributes with which you are automatically gifted.Jane Roberts Whether Or Not Sayings By Jane Roberts: You were born into a state of grace. It is impossible for you to leave
We are living in the machine age. For the first time in history the comedian has been compelled to supply himself with jokes and comedy material to compete with the machine. Whether he knows it or not, the comedian is on a treadmill to oblivion.Fred Allen Whether Or Not Sayings By Fred Allen: We are living in the machine age. For the first time in history the comedian
You will call me," he said. "For the rest of your life, you will call me. I don't give a shit whether or not you're in the mood. I don't care if your cause is useless or if I am too late or if you can fix the whole damn problem by yourself or if you just get scared. You will call me, Grace. You will call me.Thea Harrison Whether Or Not Sayings By Thea Harrison: You will call me," he said. "For the rest of your life, you will call
Acceptance may be seen as the first step in healing, though when there is true acceptance, this is not really a step. Acceptance is there whether you step forward, backward or remain where you are. Also when acceptance is total there is no need of any further step. Acceptance will suffice.Franco Santoro Whether Or Not Sayings By Franco Santoro: Acceptance may be seen as the first step in healing, though when there is true
You can tell whether a person plays well or not by the way he carries the instrument, whether it means something to him or not.Miles Davis Whether Or Not Sayings By Miles Davis: You can tell whether a person plays well or not by the way he carries
The Good News must be backed by integrity in our lives. We cannot proclaim His love if we close our hearts to the hungry. We cannot proclaim His salvation if we have not been saved from our own greed. Flamboyant, prosperous Christians are an offense to third world peoples by their insensitivity to the poverty and human deprivation, whether they come as traveling evangelists or sight-seeing vacationers.Richard J. Foster Whether Or Not Sayings By Richard J. Foster: The Good News must be backed by integrity in our lives. We cannot proclaim His
This is in the natural order of things
the time of life we've now entered. The afternoon, as Jung called it. Thoroughly unprepared we take the step into the afternoon of life. Are we unprepared simply because preparation is not possible? ... We learn
if we are lucky we learn
as we go.
... we are in the center of the stream. Much has already happened, and has formed the shape of our lives as surely as water shapes rock. Much lies ahead of us. We can't see what's coming. We can't know it. All we have is our hope that all will be well, and our knowledge that it won't always be so. We live in the space between this hope and this knowledge.
...
Life keeps coming at us. Fleeing it is pointless, as is fighting. What I have begun to learn is that there is value in simply standing there
this too
whether the sun is shining, or the wind whipping all around. [pp.239-240]
Dani Shapiro Whether Or Not Sayings By Dani Shapiro: This is in the natural order of thingsthe time of life we've now entered. The
That's what running does to lives. It's not just exercise. It's not just achievement. It's a daily discipline that has nothing to do with speed, weight, social status, sexual orientation, political affiliation, where you live, what car you drive, or whether anyone anywhere loves you. It's about the slow and painful process of being the best you can be.Martin Dugard Whether Or Not Sayings By Martin Dugard: That's what running does to lives. It's not just exercise. It's not just achievement. It's
People say a lot of things in anger," she said. "It is our choice whether or not to listen.Elizabeth Rudnick Whether Or Not Sayings By Elizabeth Rudnick: People say a lot of things in anger," she said. "It is our choice whether
You view the gods as entities without," Montolio tried to explain. "You see them as physical beings trying to control our actions for their own ends, and thus you, in your stubborn independance, reject them. The gods are within, I say, whether one has named his own or not. You have followed Mielikki all your life, Drizzt. You merely never had a name to put on your heart.R.A. Salvatore Whether Or Not Sayings By R.A. Salvatore: You view the gods as entities without," Montolio tried to explain. "You see them as
The way I see things, God loves you the same whether you're being elegant or not. It feels much better when you are, but even when you can't fake it, God still listens to your prayers. Again and again I tell God I need help, and God says, 'Well isn't that fabulous? Because I need help too. So you go get that old woman over there some water, and I'll figure out what we're going to do about your stuff.Anne Lamott Whether Or Not Sayings By Anne Lamott: The way I see things, God loves you the same whether you're being elegant or
Nobody escapes being wounded. We are all wounded people, whether physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. The main question is not, 'How can we hide our wounds?' so we don't have to be embarrassed, but 'How can we put our woundedness in the service of others?' When our wounds cease to be a source of shame, and become a source of healing, we have become wounded healers.Henri Nouwen Whether Or Not Sayings By Henri Nouwen: Nobody escapes being wounded. We are all wounded people, whether physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually.
Art is amoral, whether we accept this or not; it does not take sides. The finest fictions are cold at heart.John Banville Whether Or Not Sayings By John Banville: Art is amoral, whether we accept this or not; it does not take sides. The
savvy marketers are moving to an evaluation of the impact that all ad impressions - whether clicked or not - have on consumer behavior, mirroring the manner in which traditional advertising has been measured for decades using reach and frequency metrics.William Leake Whether Or Not Sayings By William Leake: savvy marketers are moving to an evaluation of the impact that all ad impressions -
Many thanks for the sending me the book Biology of the Striped Skunk ... Frankly, I doubt whether I shall read it or not, unless I happen to have some intimate contact with a skunk which may induce me to learn more about him.Roger Adams Whether Or Not Sayings By Roger Adams: Many thanks for the sending me the book Biology of the Striped Skunk ... Frankly,
Family and friends aren't always ready to make the journey when you are, and you just have to keep plowing along whether they have confidence in you or not. That can be very lonely.Anne Bancroft Whether Or Not Sayings By Anne Bancroft: Family and friends aren't always ready to make the journey when you are, and you
We all know how it says it's going to end, Dreamer, but no one knows for sure. That's up to you, and your friends. It is the Four who shall decide whether or not it comes true, not a bunch of words written on a piece of paper. Not even," he turned the book around so that its insides were facing her, "if it's written in on very old, very large, dusty paper.Chani Lynn Feener Whether Or Not Sayings By Chani Lynn Feener: We all know how it says it's going to end, Dreamer, but no one knows
Only when it is seen that what decides each individual's destiny is whether or not God decides to save him from his sins, and that this is a decision that God need not make in any individual case, can one begin to grasp the biblical view of grace.J.I. Packer Whether Or Not Sayings By J.I. Packer: Only when it is seen that what decides each individual's destiny is whether or not
I believe in One God,though you think that the gods dwell in those clouds on the Fifth Mountain.i don't want to argue whether my God is stronger or more powerful;I would speak not of our differences but of our similarities.Tragedy has united us in a single sentiment:despair.Why has that come to pass?Because we thought that everything was answered and decided in our souls,and we could accept no changes.Paulo Coelho Whether Or Not Sayings By Paulo Coelho: I believe in One God,though you think that the gods dwell in those clouds on
She must jump from square to square, right leg first, then left, then both together, and make a show of caring whether or not she steps on a line. She must go on jumping day after day, bearing the burden of time on her shoulders like a cross that grows heavier from day to day.Milan Kundera Whether Or Not Sayings By Milan Kundera: She must jump from square to square, right leg first, then left, then both together,
Law is a process. If there is equality of process for everybody, then that's our definition of justice. Whether or not what is done is right or wrong, you follow the process. And so, the end result is just by definition within that alternative universe that is American law. Most people still operate within a moral universe where principles of good and bad and what is right and wrong in itself, and not just as a result of the process.Francis George Whether Or Not Sayings By Francis George: Law is a process. If there is equality of process for everybody, then that's our
Within the context of the clubs, and perhaps the sex business as a whole, the issue of race becomes very complicated because you can't force someone to pay for something - or someone - that they don't want, whether their desire - or lack thereof - is motivated by racism or not.Craig Seymour Whether Or Not Sayings By Craig Seymour: Within the context of the clubs, and perhaps the sex business as a whole, the
All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness.Eckhart Tolle Whether Or Not Sayings By Eckhart Tolle: All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind,
Whether people like it or not, my marketing thought is if you keep something in front of people for too long, they get used to it.Shah Rukh Khan Whether Or Not Sayings By Shah Rukh Khan: Whether people like it or not, my marketing thought is if you keep something in
Rome, yes, I say, thinking in quick succession of the Pantheon, the Colosseum and the cardinals screwing around while wondering whether women have souls or not, and of Nero, of course, who killed his closest family and let the city burn. I don't reckon he liked people, either.Erlend Loe Whether Or Not Sayings By Erlend Loe: Rome, yes, I say, thinking in quick succession of the Pantheon, the Colosseum and the
Some have said that it is not the business of private men to meddle with government
a bold and dishonest saying, which is fit to come from no mouth but that of a tyrant or a slave. To say that private men have nothing to do with government is to say that private men have nothing to do with their own happiness or misery; that people ought not to concern themselves whether they be naked or clothed, fed or starved, deceived or instructed, protected or destroyed.
Cato The Younger Whether Or Not Sayings By Cato The Younger: Some have said that it is not the business of private men to meddle with
Race means family and all black people whether they like it or not, are family.Kola Boof Whether Or Not Sayings By Kola Boof: Race means family and all black people whether they like it or not, are family.
But at the heart of it all we must take our noses out of textbooks and delve into the Book to gain God's perspective of raising and educating a child. We must become more concerned with their souls than their brains. A child's smarts can help them go places in life, but the character reflected from their soul is what will determine whether or not they do anything significant once they get there.Lysa TerKeurst Whether Or Not Sayings By Lysa TerKeurst: But at the heart of it all we must take our noses out of textbooks
Freedom ... refer[s] to a social relationship among people-namely, the absence of force as a prospective instrument of decision making. Freedom is reduced whenever a decision is made under threat of force, whether or not force actually materializes or is evident in retrospect.Thomas Sowell Whether Or Not Sayings By Thomas Sowell: Freedom ... refer[s] to a social relationship among people-namely, the absence of force as a
As we have pointed out, the principle of the tree of knowledge is to be independent of God. It means that we make our decisions independently. Although Cain performed a good deed, it was independent of God. Everything that is good yet independent of God results in death. This is similar to insulation which severs the flow of electricity. Regardless of the substance that is used as insulation - it may even be diamond - electricity is cut off nonetheless. As long as it causes insulation, it does not matter whether the material is good or bad. Likewise, if a thing keeps us away from God, it brings death, regardless of how good it is.Witness Lee Whether Or Not Sayings By Witness Lee: As we have pointed out, the principle of the tree of knowledge is to be
Once we begin to question our thoughts, our partners-alive, dead or divorced-are always our greatest teachers. There's no mistake about the person you're with; he or she is the perfect teacher for you, whether or not the relationship works out, and once you enter inquiry, you come to see that clearly.Byron Katie Whether Or Not Sayings By Byron Katie: Once we begin to question our thoughts, our partners-alive, dead or divorced-are always our greatest
That absolute, ultimate reality is always there within us (as it is everywhere else, as well). whether we are aware of it or not, it is there, like the sun shining behind the clouds, invisible because of the clouds, but undeniably there. The sun of our inner nature, the LifeParticle Sun, is always shining, whether we see it or not. And because it is already there, we don't need to create or achieve it. We just have to acknowledge it.Ilchi Lee Whether Or Not Sayings By Ilchi Lee: That absolute, ultimate reality is always there within us (as it is everywhere else, as
It is the interest of every man to live as much at his ease as he can; and if his emoluments are to be precisely the same, whether he does or does not perform some very laborious duty, it is certainly his interest, at least as interest is vulgarly understood, either to neglect it altogether, or, if he is subject to some authority which will not suffer him to do this, to perform it in as careless and slovenly a manner as that authority will permit.Adam Smith Whether Or Not Sayings By Adam Smith: It is the interest of every man to live as much at his ease as
The relevant question is not whether back then a few extraordinary individuals could overcome a system strongly weighted against them or whether today an admittedly far greater number requiring far less talent can succeed. The real question is whether it's harder for the people in this audience to succeed be they extraordinary, average, or below average. If it is, and I think it obvious that it is, then that's untenable in a country that purports to provide equal opportunity for all. Now of course you'll dispute my claim that it is more difficult to succeed for them. You say the battle's over. I say not only is it not over but you yourself are stationed on the frontline of the battle and have been all these years. This room and the criminal justice system as a whole is the frontline. This is where modern-day segregation lives on.Sergio De La Pava Whether Or Not Sayings By Sergio De La Pava: The relevant question is not whether back then a few extraordinary individuals could overcome a
Forgiveness always heals; it does not matter whether you are Hindu, Buddhist, Catholic or Jewish. Forgiveness is one of the patterns that is always true, it is part of The Story. There is no specifically Catholic way to feed the hungry or to steward the earth.Richard Rohr Whether Or Not Sayings By Richard Rohr: Forgiveness always heals; it does not matter whether you are Hindu, Buddhist, Catholic or Jewish.
Whether we are Christians or Muslims or nationalists or agnostics or atheists, we must first learn to forget our differences. If we have differences, let us differ in the closet; when we come out in front, let us not have anything to argue about until we get finished arguing with the man. If the late President Kennedy could get together with Khrushchev and exchange some wheat, we certainly have more in common with each other than Kennedy and Khrushchev had with each other.Malcolm X Whether Or Not Sayings By Malcolm X: Whether we are Christians or Muslims or nationalists or agnostics or atheists, we must first
Our coerced silence is the weapon that has been sharpened and brought to our throats.
This is why Nawaz Sharif's statement in defence of Ahmadis met with such an angry response. Because the heart of the issue isn't whether Ahmadis are non-Muslims or not. The heart of the issue is whether Muslims can be silenced by fear.
Because if we can be silenced when it comes to Ahmadis, then we can be silenced when it comes to Shias, we can be silenced when it comes to women, we can be silenced when it comes to dress, we can be silenced when it comes to entertainment, and we can even be silenced when it comes to sitting by ourselves, alone in a room, afraid to think what we think.
That is the point.

Enlightenment is eliminating mental confusion, eliminating hatred, jealousy, mental toxins, cravings. That's very simple and straightforward. Whether you can do it or not is another matter.Matthieu Ricard Whether Or Not Sayings By Matthieu Ricard: Enlightenment is eliminating mental confusion, eliminating hatred, jealousy, mental toxins, cravings.

To be a serious writer requires discipline that is iron fisted. It's sitting down and doing it whether you think you have it in you or not. Everyday. Alone. Without interruption. Contrary to what most people think, there is no glamour to writing. In fact, it's heartbreak most of the time.Harper Lee Whether Or Not Sayings By Harper Lee: To be a serious writer requires discipline that is iron fisted. It's sitting down and
This was a result of a number of factors, but we do know that the messages kids get about the harms of drugs has a significant impact on their decision on whether or not to use.John Walters Whether Or Not Sayings By John Walters: This was a result of a number of factors, but we do know that the
Philosophical argument, trying to get someone to believe something whether he wants to believe it or not, is not, I have held, a nice way to behave towards someone; also it does not fit the original motivation for studying or entering philosophy. That motivation is puzzlement, curiousity, a desire to understand, not a desire to produce uniformity of belief. Most people do not want to become thought-police. The philosophical goal of explanation rather than proof not only is morally better, it is more in accord with one's philosophical motivation.Robert Nozick Whether Or Not Sayings By Robert Nozick: Philosophical argument, trying to get someone to believe something whether he wants to believe it
We've come to understand that all land not explicitly designated for public use is privately owned, regardless of whether it's put to use or not. The next time you pass by a property that's only minimally used but nonetheless owned, consider how harmless it seems. You might even think that the private ownership may have preserved a little piece of nature from human contact... However, this perspective only arises because of the scarcity we have collectively created; such a situation would not occur if we only used as much land as we actually needed. If our exclusive use of land came with an ongoing responsibility to our local community, nature would no longer be exploited: Most people would tend to use no more land than absolutely necessary,Martin Adams Whether Or Not Sayings By Martin Adams: We've come to understand that all land not explicitly designated for public use is privately
Like an unexpected wet mop in the face of tired complacency, The Sovereignty Solution works on the receptive mind as a pry bar works on a tightly sealed box. Written with courage and passion, this is a book whose often counterintuitive clarity shakes entombed assumptions like an earthquake. Whether you end up convinced or not, you will never think about American national security the same way ever again.Adam Garfinkle Whether Or Not Sayings By Adam Garfinkle: Like an unexpected wet mop in the face of tired complacency, The Sovereignty Solution works
I am somewhat uncertain whether there is a definite factual question as to whether natural language handles truth-value gaps ... Nor am I even quite sure that there is a definite question of fact as to whether natural language should be evaluated by the minimal fixed point or another, given the choice of a scheme for handling gaps. We are not at the moment searching for the correct scheme.Saul Kripke Whether Or Not Sayings By Saul Kripke: I am somewhat uncertain whether there is a definite factual question as to whether natural
The true secret of giving advice is, after you have honestly given it, to be perfectly indifferent whether it is taken or not, and never persist in trying to set people right.Henry Ward Beecher Whether Or Not Sayings By Henry Ward Beecher: The true secret of giving advice is, after you have honestly given it, to be
The third note in a chord is what depicts whether it's major or minor. Rhythm and Blues hardly ever uses it because it means that the melody is free to move between major and minor because you're not clashing with the third being depicted one way or the other.Robert Palmer Whether Or Not Sayings By Robert Palmer: The third note in a chord is what depicts whether it's major or minor.

You must never so much think as whether you like it or not, whether it is bearable or not; you must never think of anything except the need, and how to meet it.Clara Barton Whether Or Not Sayings By Clara Barton: You must never so much think as whether you like it or not, whether it
I don't think there is a question as to whether or not I want you, because that is painfully blatant right now, but did I miss you? It was so much more than that. And do I need you? Yes. I need you. My heart needs you, Delilah.Lindy Zart Whether Or Not Sayings By Lindy Zart: I don't think there is a question as to whether or not I want you,
I think that the lady dies not because she leaves the tower for the outside world but because she lets herself float through the world pulled by the current after a dream.
Do you mean she should of paddled Cecily asks.
Miss Moore laughs. In a manner of speaking yes.
Ann stops drumming. But it wouldn't matter whether she paddled or not. She's cursed. No matter what she does she'll die.
And she'll die if she stays in the tower too. Perhaps not for a long time but she will die. We all will. Miss Moore says softly.

In lecturing on cookery, as on housebuilding, I divide the subject into, not four, but five grand elements: first, Bread; second,Butter; third, Meat; fourth, Vegetables; and fifth, Tea
by which I mean, generically, all sorts of warm, comfortable drinks served out in teacups, whether they be called tea, coffee, chocolate, broma, or what not. I affirm that, if these five departments are all perfect, the great ends of domestic cookery are answered, so far as the comfort and well-being of life are concerned.

My last experience of film-making was Tickets, a three-episode film in Italy, the third of which is directed by myself. It's not for me to judge whether it's a good film or a bad film, but what I could say is that nobody had a cultural or linguistic issue with what was produced.Abbas Kiarostami Whether Or Not Sayings By Abbas Kiarostami: My last experience of film-making was Tickets, a three-episode film in Italy, the third of
