St. Tr. 192.

It is the theory that the experiences undergone by boys at the great public schools, their glories and disappointments, are so intense as to dominate their lives and arrest their development. From these it results that the greater part of the ruling class remains adolescent, school-minded, self-conscious, cowardly, sentimental, and in the last analysis homosexual.cyril connolly

My Christian brethren, if the crowd of difficulties which stand between your souls and God succeed in keeping you away, all is lost.

That image or rather that Person, so human, yet so entirely Divine, has a power to fill the imagination, to arrest the affections, to deepen and purify the conscience, which nothing else in the world has.john campbell shairp

Among the many advantages: Parable attract, and when fully understood are sure to be remembered...; Parables greatly help the mind and thinking faculty...; Parables stir up, or excite the affections , and awaken consciences as when hell in parable is set up as a furnace of fire , and conscience by a gnawing worm; Parables arrest and hold attention ...; Parables preserve the truth ...And mere words are constantly changing their meaning, whereas the symbols of life and nature , as such as our Lord used in His parables, are as abiding as nature and life themselves.In pp.17-18 (All the Parables of the Bible)

Quoted in Disarmament or Delusion?, Awake! magazine, January 8, 1983.

A simple way to determine whether the right to dissent in a particular society is being upheld is to apply the town square test: Can a person walk into the middle of the town square and express his or her views without fear of arrest, imprisonment, or physical harm? If he can, then that person is living in a free society. If not, it's a fear society.Natan Sharansky, The Case for Democracy, pp. 40–41, 2004, with Ron Dermer.

This misplacing hath caused a deficience, or at least a great improficience in the sciences themselves. For the handling of final causes, mixed with the rest in physical inquiries, hath intercepted the severe and diligent inquiry of all real and physical causes, and given men the occasion to stay upon these satisfactory and specious causes, to the great arrest and prejudice of further discovery. For this I find done not only by Plato , who ever anchoreth upon that shore, but by Aristotle , Galen , and others which do usually likewise fall upon these flats of discoursing causes.Francis Bacon
Now it's one thing to say (I say it) that people shouldn't consume psychoactive drugs. It is entirely something else to condone marijuana laws the application of which resulted, in 1995, in the arrest of 588,963 Americans.

"I am writing this preliminary statement of my reasons for not paying taxes ahead of time, as I was recently informed by your office that I would be imprisoned for my constant refusal to pay taxes.
