Boris Johnson has real contempt for Londoners. He hates that we celebrate each other's heritage; he hates that we try to pass on a healthy environment to our children; he hates that we look after our most vulnerable neighbours; and most of all he hates that we all expect to share in our city's financial success.
Contempt for an assailant is best shown by bravery in action.Book VI, 6.34-
Contempt is also defined as the state of being despised or dishonored ; disgrace , and an open disrespect or willful disobedience of the authority of a court of law or legislative body.In e-Study Guide for: Understanding Motivation and Emotion by Johnmarshall ..., p.215
...the Contempt that he has for Quebecers, and for the facts, that trickles from every page, hurt me, as a Quebecer, [...] as a journalist also, as an author, the intellectual dishonesty with which he plays with the facts, he makes comparisons that are absolutely unacceptable, it gave me an enormous headache to read this book, it stopped me from sleeping. [...] Evidently, here in Quebec, we know that he exaggerates, but someone has to say it to English Canadians.Mordecai Richler
His taste was formed in no exclusive schools, and he could admire whatever was good, no matter the rules or the Contempt of rules by which it was produced. He was as free from envy and jealousy as a man can be; and few writers younger than himself will fail to remember the generous encouragement and seasonable notice which his connection with the press enabled his kindly temper to bestow.samuel laman blanchard
In the first manifesto that we launched on the 8th of March, 1910, from the stage of the Chiarella Theater in Turin,1 we expressed our deep-rooted disgust with, our proud Contempt for, and our happy rebellion against vulgarity, mediocrity, the fanatical and snobbish worship of all that is old, attitudes which are suffocating Art in our Country.Umberto Boccioni
But it is recognized that punishment for the abuse of the liberty accorded to the press is essential to the protection of the public, and that the common law rules that subject the libeler to responsibility for the public offense, as well as for the private injury, are not abolished by the protection extended in our constitutions. The law of criminal libel rests upon that secure foundation. There is also the conceded authority of courts to punish for Contempt when publications directly tend to prevent the proper discharge of judicial functions.charles evans hughes
There will be no room, here, for the smug myopia which views American civilization as the final solution to all world problems; which recommends our institutions for universal adoption and turns away with Contempt from the serious study of the institutions of peoples whose civilizations may seem to us to be materially less advanced.george f. kennan
I never have held death in Contempt, though in the course of my explorations I have oftentimes felt that to meet one's fate on a noble mountain, or in the heart of a glacier, would be blessed as compared with death from disease, or from some shabby lowland accident. But the best death, quick and crystal-pure, set so glaringly open before us, is hard enough to face, even though we feel gratefully sure that we have already had happiness enough for a dozen lives.john muir
These temple-destroyers, devotees of ravaging commercialism, seem to have a perfect Contempt for Nature, and instead of lifting their eyes to the God of the mountains, lift them to the Almighty Dollar. Dam Hetch Hetchy! As well dam for water-tanks the people's cathedrals and churches, for no holier temple has ever been consecrated by the heart of man.john muir
The only perfect and genuine republic is that which comprehends every living being. Those distinctions which have been artificially set up, of nations, societies, families, and religions, are only general names, expressing the abhorrence and Contempt with which men blindly consider their fellowmen.Percy Bysshe Shelley
In a cottage I live, and the cot of content, Where a few little rooms for ambition too low, Are furnish'd as plain as a patriarch's tent, With all for convenience, but nothing for show: Like Robinson Crusoe's, both peaceful and pleasant, By industry stor'd, like the hive of a bee; And the peer who looks down with Contempt on a peasant. Can ne'er be look'd up to with envy by me.John Collins, How to be Happy. Song in his Scripscrapologia.
The object of the discipline enforced by the Court in case of Contempt of court is not to vindicate the dignity of the Court or the person of the Judge, but to prevent undue interference with the administration of justice.Bowen, L.J., Hellmore v. Smith (2) (1886), L. R. 35 C. D. 455.
It seems to me that this jurisdiction of committing for Contempt being practically arbitrary and unlimited, should be most jealously and carefully watched, and exercised, if I may say so, with the greatest reluctance and the greatest anxiety on the part of Judges to see whether there is no other mode which is not open to the objection of arbitrariness, and which can be brought to bear upon the subject.Jessel, M.R., In re Clements, Clements v. Erlanger (1877), 46 L. J. Ch. 383.
This was the country the Mormons settled, the country which, as Brigham Young with some reason hoped, no one else wanted. Its destiny was plain on its face, its Contempt of man and his history and his theological immortality, his Millennium, his Heaven on Earth, was monumentally obvious. Its distances were terrifying, its cloudbursts catastrophic, its beauty flamboyant and bizarre and allied with death.Wallace Stegner, Mormon Country (1982)
Variant: Familiarity breeds Contempt, but concealment excites interest.It is with life just as with swimming; that man is the most expert who is the most disengaged from all encumbrances.
God has given to man no sharper spur to victory than Contempt of death.As quoted by Livy, in Ab urbe condita Book XXI, 44, as translated by Aubrey De Sélincourt, in The War with Hannibal (1965)
Serve God, and join not any partners with Him; and do good- to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, those in need, neighbours who are near, neighbours who are strangers, the companion by your side, the wayfarer (ye meet), and what your right hands possess: For God loveth not the arrogant, the vainglorious;-(Nor) those who are niggardly or enjoin niggardliness on others, or hide the bounties which God hath bestowed on them; for We have prepared, for those who resist Faith, a punishment that steeps them in Contempt;-Original: ????????? ??????????? ????????????????????? ??????????? ????????????? ??? ???????? ????????? ???????? ????????????? ?????????????? ???????? ?????????
