The news of the dayas it reaches the newspaper office is an incredible medley of fact, propaganda, rumor, suspicion, clues, hopes, and fears, and the task of selecting and ordering that news is one of the truly sacred and priestly offices in a democracy. For the newspaper isinall literalnessthebibleofdemocracy, the book out of which a people determines its Conduct.walter lippmann
In many instances the Conduct of colored workmen, and those who have spoken for them, has not been in asking or demanding that equal rights be accorded to them as to white workmen, but somehow conveying the idea that they are to be petted and coddled and given special consideration and special privilege. Of course that can't be done.samuel gompers
Were a stranger to drop on a sudden into this world, I would show him, as a specimen of its ills, a hospital full of diseases, a prison crowded with malefactors and debtors, a field of battle strewed with carcasses, a fleet foundering in the ocean, a nation languishing under tyranny, famine, or pestilence. To turn the gay side of life to him, and give him a notion of its pleasures; whither should I Conduct him? to a ball, to an opera, to court? He might justly think, that I was only showing him a diversity of distress and sorrow.David Hume

Conduct is three-fourths of our life and its largest concern.Matthew Arnold
Everyone who receives the protection of society owes a return for the benefit, and the fact of living in a society renders it indispensable that each should be bound to observe a certain line of Conduct towards the rest. That Conduct consists?in each person bearing his share of the labours and sacrifices incurred for defending the society or its members from injuryand molestation.john stuart mill
Pagan philosophers set up reason as the sole guide of life, of wisdom and Conduct; but Christian philosophy demands of us that we surrender our reason to the Holy Spirit; and this means that we no longer live for ourselves, but that Christ lives and reigns within us (Rom 12:1; Eph 4:23; Gal 2:20).john calvin
We still have many shortcomings and failures to fulfill the Party's demands, especially as regards the liquidation in some of our people of survivals of the accursed past in consciousness and Conduct and the fulfillment of the demands of our Soviet ethics and military discipline.filipp golikov
The newspaper is in all its literalness the bible of democracy, the book out of which a people determines its Conduct.walter lippmann
Voluptuaries of all ages, of every sex, it is to you only that I offer this work; nourish yourselves upon its principles: they favor your passions, and these passions, whereof coldly insipid moralists put you in fear, are naught but the means Nature employs to bring man to the ends she prescribes to him; harken only to these delicious promptings, for no voice save that of the passions can Conduct you to happiness.To Libertines
It is a matter of course and of absolute necessity to the Conduct of business, that any discretionary businessman must be free to deal or not to deal in any given case; to limit or withhold the equipment under his control, without reservation. Business discretion and business strategy, in fact, has no other means by to work out its aims. So that, in effect, all business sagacity reduces itself in the last analysis to judicious use of sabotage.thorstein veblen
The issue presented is whether the Federal Constitution confers a fundamental right upon homosexuals to engage in sodomy, and hence invalidates the laws of the many States that still make such Conduct illegal, and have done so for a very long time…. Respondent would have us announce, as the Court of Appeals did, a fundamental right to engage in homosexual sodomy. This we are quite unwilling to do.byron white
It shews the anxiety of the great men who influenced the Conduct of affairs at that great event, to make the Revolution a parent of settlement, and not a nursery of future revolutions.Edmund Burke
The first act by virtue of which the State really constitutes itself the representative of the whole of society the taking possession of the means of production in the name of society this is, at the same time, its last independent act as a State. State interference in social relations becomes, in one domain after another, superfluous, and then dies out of itself; the government of persons is replaced by the administration of things, and by the Conduct of processes of production. The State is not “abolished.” It dies out.Friedrich Engels
In all ages of the world, priests have been enemies to liberty; and it is certain, that this steady Conduct of theirs must have been founded on fixed reasons of interest and ambition. Liberty of thinking, and of expressing our thoughts, is always fatal to priestly power, and to those pious frauds, on which it is commonly founded; and, by an infallible connexion, which prevails among all kinds of liberty, this privilege can never be enjoyed, at least has never yet been enjoyed, but in a free government.David Hume
If anyone wants to know why we must Conduct ourselves [with commonsense and realism], just remember at all times, with all temptations, how you, each and every one of you sitting in this hall, each and every Labour worker watching this conference, each and every Labour voter, yes, and some others as well, remember how you felt on that dreadful morning of the tenth of June. Just remember how you felt then, and think to yourselves: 'June the ninth, 1983, never ever again will we experience that.'neil kinnock
Liberal Education makes not the Christian, not the Catholic, but the gentleman. It is well to be a gentlemen, it is well to have a cultivated intellect, a delicate taste, a candid, equitable, dispassionate mind, a noble and courteous bearing in the Conduct of life.Discourse V, pt. 9.
The power of free will is developed and confirmed by increasing the number of worthy motives which influence Conduct.john lancaster spalding
The study of science, dissociated from that of philosophy and literature, narrows the mind and weakens the power to love and follow the noblest ideals: for the truths which science ignores and must ignore are precisely those which have the deepest bearing on life and Conduct.john lancaster spalding
The idea of putting old Browborough into prison for Conduct which habit had made second nature to a large proportion of the House was distressing to Members of Parliament generally.Anthony Trollope
Most of the American laws defining race are not to be compared with those once enforced by Nazi Germany, the latter being relatively more liberal. In the view of the Nazis, persons having less than one fourth Jewish blood could qualify as Aryans, whereas many of the American laws specify that persons having one-eighth, one-sixteenth, or any ascertainable" Negro blood are Negroes in the eyes of the law and subject to all restrictions governing the Conduct of Negroes.Stetson Kennedy (1955), Jim Crow Guide: The Way it Was, chapter 4

I base my vote to reverse on the belief that the First and Fourteenth Amendments not merely "delimit" a State's power to award damages to "public officials against critics of their official Conduct," but completely prohibit a State from exercising such a power.Justice Hugo Black, decision, New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, Supreme Court of the United States, 376 U.S. 254 (1964)
What has once been settled by a precedent will not be unsettled overnight, for certainty and uniformity are gains not lightly sacrificed. Above all is this true when honest men have shaped their Conduct on the faith of the pronouncement.Benjamin N. Cardozo, The Paradoxes of Legal Science (1928).
Religion, as embodied in the character and Conduct of its disciples, cannot survive without doctrinal purity. In the absence of this element, religious feeling inevitably decays; while even religious necessity becomes a thing of naught.John McClellan Holmes, p. 194. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))
Though a hundred crooked paths may Conduct to a temporary success, the one plain and straight path of public and private virtue can alone lead to a pure and lasting fame and the blessings of posterity.Edward Everett, p. 352. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))
Appropriate patterns of reproductive, gender, and sexual Conduct are all products of specific cultures and all can be viewed as examples of socially scripted Conduct. Western societies now have a system of gender and sexual learning in which gender differential scripts are learned prior to sexual scripts, but take their origins in part from the previously learned gender scripts... There are two important points: The first is that both gender and sexuality are learned forms of social practice, and the second is that looking to "natural differences" between women and men for lessons about sexual Conduct is an error.John Gagnon, "The Eplicit and Implicit Use of the Scripting Perspective in Sex Research", 1990
The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness ; to an opponent, tolerance ; to a friend, your heart ; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, Conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect ; to all men, charity .Benjamin Franklin, in The Coffee Mom's Devotional: A Rich Blend of 30 Brief and Inspiring Devotions, p.37
