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
Respect is the foundation of a stable way of life and the basis of a code of Conduct.Dame Vera Lynn, English singer, variety performer. Ch. 7, Sincerely Yours, Some Sunny Day (2009), p. 161.
Why Egypt should be of such importance either to the French or to Us I never could discover and I have always thought the Expedition there the foolishest part, perhaps the only foolish part of Bonaparte's Conduct, unless perhaps he had some views in it connected with the internal Politicks of France of which we are not informed, or (which I have always suspected) that he had a desire to be out of the way of either accepting or refusing the command of an army destined to invade England.charles james fox
We are a democracy, and there is only one way to get a democracy on its feet in the matter of its individual, its social, its municipal, its State, its National Conduct, and that is by keeping the public informed about what is going on.There isnot a crime, there isnot a dodge, there is not a trick, there is not a swindle, there is not a vice which does not live by secrecy.Get these things out in the open, describe them, attack them, ridicule them in the press, and sooner or later public opinion will sweep them away.joseph pulitzer
Men, indeed, appear to me to act in a very unphilosophical manner when they try to secure the good Conduct of women by attempting to keep them always in a state of childhood.1792 AVindication of the Rights ofWoman, pt.1, ch.2.
Your defeat is not only a reality, which has been historically proven time and again. It can also be seen in your helplessness and your inability to suppress the movement, in your desperate Conduct when faced with our guerrillas and the vanguard of the people.ashraf dehghani
If we had wanted to Conduct a pogrom against the Jews, it would all have been over now.ernst hanfstaengl
A man wants no protection when his Conduct is strictly right.William Mansfield
The general verdict among the German generals I interrogated in 1945 was that Field-Marshal von Manstein had proved the ablest commander in their Army, and the man they had most desired to become its Commander-in-Chief. It is very clear that he had a superb sense of operational possibilities and equal mastery in the Conduct of operations, together with a greater grasp of the potentialities of mechanized forces than any other commander who had not been trained in the tank arm. In sum, he had military genius.erich von manstein
I am, now as before, of the opinion that I did the best that I could do for my nation. I therefore do not regret my Conduct and will bear the consequences that result from my Conduct.sophie scholl
As to the doctrine of the Circles it may briefly be summed up in a single maxim, "Attend to your Configuration." Whether political, ecclesiastical, or moral, all their teaching has for its object the improvement of individual and collective Configuration with special reference of course to the Configuration of the Circles, to which all other objects are subordinated. It is the merit of the Circles that they have effectually suppressed those ancient heresies which led men to waste energy and sympathy in the vain belief that Conduct depends upon will, effort, training, encouragement, praise, or anything else but Configuration.edwin abbot
An enormous amount of modern ingenuity is expended on finding defences for the indefensible Conduct of the powerful. As I have said above, these defences generally exhibit themselves most emphatically in the form of appeals to physical science. And of all the forms in which science, or pseudo-science, has come to the rescue of the rich and stupid, there is none so singular as the singular invention of the theory of races.gilbert keith chesterton
A parabola is bound by one law which fixes its relations with two straight lines at every point; yet it has no end short of infinity, and it continually changes its direction. The Initiate who is aware Who he is can always check is Conduct by reference to the determinants of his curve, and calculate his past, his future, his bearings, and his proper course at any assigned moment; he can even comprehend himself as a simple idea.aleister crowley
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
If certain acts of violation of treaties are crimes, they are crimes whether the United States does them or whether Germany does them, and we are not prepared to lay down a rule of criminal Conduct against others which we would not be willing to have invoked against us.robert h. jackson
There is no more important rule of Conduct in the world than this: attach yourself as much as you can to people who are abler than you and yet not so very different that you cannot understand them.Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
If pains be to be taken to give him a manly air and assurance betimes , it is chiefly as a fence to his virtue when he goes into the world under his own Conduct.john locke
In certain circumstances where he experiments in new types of Conduct by cooperating with his equals, the child is already an adult. There is an adult in every child and a child in every adult. … There exist in the child certain attitudes and beliefs which intellectual development will more and more tend to eliminate: there are others which will acquire more and more importance. The later are not derived from the former but are partly antagonistic to them.jean piaget
Thus viewed, law as it exists in the modern community may be conveniently, although perhaps not comprehensively, defined as the sum total of all those rules of Conduct for which there is state sanction.harlan f. stone
The “determinist” swears that if we knew everything we should also be able to deduce and foretell the Conduct of every man in every circumstance, and that is obvious enough. But the expression “know everything” means nothing.paul valéry
You often ask me, Priscus, what sort of person I should be, if I were to become suddenly rich and powerful. Who can determine what would be his future Conduct? Tell me, if you were to become a lion, what sort of a lion would you be?Martial, Epigrams (c. 80-104 AD), Book XII, Epigram 92.
There is a world of difference between the one who would imitate the Conduct of the successful merchant, who sits in the front pew of his church, and him who would follow literally the teachings of Jesus Christ. To attain perfectly the one ideal if it be an ideal is a comparatively simple task. To attain the other, is perhaps an impossibility.p.53 (Why We Fail as Christians (1919))
The mandate entails a generous synthesis of civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights. The title requires the expert to be truly independent, keep an open mind, Conduct his/her research objectively and without ideological prejudices, listen to all sides of an argument and seek the opinion of all stakeholders.Alfred de Zayas Statement by on his personal website 
It will require more than a few hours of fasting and prayer to cast out such demons as selfishness, worldliness, and unbelief. Repentance, to be of any avail, must work a change of heart and of Conduct.Theodore L. Cuyler, p. 507. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))
I would like to stress that I did not come into contact with any Muslim before I embraced Islam. I read the Qur'an first and realized no person is perfect, Islam is perfect, and if we imitate the Conduct of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of God be upon him), we will be successful. May Allah give us guidance to follow the path of the Ummah of Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens), in How I Came To Islam
At this point, an urgent question arises: ... Is it our duty to seek to become a thorough and complete human being, one quite sufficient unto himself; or, on the contrary, to be only a part of a whole, the organ of an organism? Briefly, is the division of labor, at the same time that it is a law of nature, also a moral rule of human Conduct; and, if it has this latter character, why and in what degree?Émile Durkheim (1893) , The Division of Labor in Society, G. Simpson, trans. (1933), p. 41
"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
True Americanism demands that we judge each man on his Conduct, that we so judge him in private life and that we so judge him in public life.Theodore Roosevelt, "Address to the Knights of Columbus" (12 October 1915).
Our investigation revealed that the criminal Conduct of Gosnell and his workers extended beyond the drug violations to nearly every aspect of the clinic’s operations. Gosnell routinely and deliberately killed babies born alive by severing their spinal cords with surgical scissors, and encouraged his employees to do the same. He performed illegal abortions after the 24th week of pregnancy, often falsifying gestational ages to disguise his criminal Conduct.GRAND JURY XXIII (Philadelphia County) presentment recommending prosecution of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell for murder, infanticide, and unlawful late-term abortion .
