Every time the Secretary of Defense tries to get a hand on his many intelligence programs, we hear warnings about the dire consequences to liberty. When you look behind those warnings, what you really see is the CIA trying to preserve its perks.
Not willingly, but tangl'd in the fold Paradise Lost Of dire necessity.john milton
What dire offence from am'rous causes springs, What mighty contests rise from trivial things.Alexander Pope

Si j'ai bien compris, vous êtes en train de me dire: à la prochaine fois.rené lévesque
The monk, the inquisitor, and the Jesuit were lords of Spain,— sovereigns of her sovereign, for they had formed the dark and narrow mind of that tyrannical recluse. They had formed the minds of her people, quenched in blood every spark of rising heresy, and given over a noble nation to a bigotry blind and inexorable as the doom of fate. Linked with pride, ambition, avarice, every passion of a rich, strong nature, potent for good and ill, it made the Spaniard of that day a scourge as dire as ever fell on man.francis parkman

Simone Weil, I maintain this now, is the only great spirit of our times and I hope that those who realize this have enough modesty to not try to appropriate her overwhelming witnessing.
For my part, I would be satisfied if one could say that in my place, with the humble means at my disposal, I served to make known and disseminate her work whose full impact we have yet to measure.
The populist rant about greedy banks that is being loudly ventilated in Congress is a distraction from the true causes of the crisis. The dire condition of America's financial markets is the result of American banks operating in a free-for-all environment that these same American legislators created.

To politicians, solved problems represent a dire threat of unemployment and poverty. That's why no problem ever tackled by the government has ever been solved. What they want is lots of problems they can promise to solve, so that we'll keep electing them or letting them keep their jobs in a bureaucracy metastasizing like cancer.l. neil smith
Comme on craint peu de choquer la vanité, on arrive fort vite en Italie au ton de l'intimité, et à dire des choses personnelles.stendhal

What dire offence from amorous causes springs, What mighty contests rise from trivial things.Alexander Pope
Federal District Court Judge Jeffrey White ordered Wikileaks's domain name registrar to disable its Web address. That was akin to shutting down a newspaper because of objections to one article.

Puisqu'il faut choisir, à mots doux je peux le dire Sans contrefaçon, je suis un garçon Et pour un empire, je ne veux me dévêtir Puisque sans contrefaçon, je suis un garçon (Since I have to choose, softly I can say it Without counterfeiting, I am a boy Even for all the world, I don't want to undress myself Since without counterfeiting, I am a boy)Herman Melville
