Ohne Butter werden wir fertig, aber nicht beispielsweise ohne Kanonen.Wenn wir einmal u« berfallen werden, dann k o« nnen wir uns nicht mit Butter, sondern nur mit Kanonen verteidigen. We can manage without butter but not, for example, without guns. If we are attacked, we can only defend ourselves with guns not butter.1936 Speech in Berlin,17 Jan.
No philosopher now looks for anything but the gradual evolutionoftheneworder fromtheold?Historyshows us no example of the sudden substitutions of Utopian and revolutionary romance.SidneyJames Webb
Postal will be so politically incorrect and harsh, it's like a mirror to American society, and I don't think the movie will be well received by anybody. For example, Osama Bin Laden will be one of the lead characters—I think that shows the mood of the movie.uwe boll
I watched a small man with thick calluses on both hands work fifteen and sixteen hours a day. I saw him once literally bleed from the bottoms of his feet, a man who came here uneducated, alone, unable to speak the language, who taught me all I needed to know about faith and hard work by the simple eloquence of his example.mario cuomo
I want to illustrate the concept of a solution in mixed strategies with a concrete example using real-world data, but I have not been able to find an appropriate one from Canadian politics.thomas flanagan
I watched and tried to figure out what he would have done. I was only sure of one thing: he wouldn't have left something like that sit there in the day room with his name tacked on it for twenty or thirty years so the Big Nurse could use it as an example of what can happen if you buck the system. I was sure of that.ken kesey
The vertical is in my spirit. It helps me to define precisely the direction of lines, and in quick sketches I never indicate a curve, that of a branch in landscape for example, without being aware of its relationship to the vertical.My curves are not mad.La verticale est dans mon esprit. Elle m'aide à préciser la direction des lignes, et dans mes dessins rapides je n'indique pas une courbe, par exemple, celle d'une branche dans un paysage, sans avoir conscience de son rapport avec la verticale.Mes courbes ne sont pas folles.
Free people do not relinquish their security. This is contrary to Bush's claim that we hate freedom. Let him tell us why we did not strike Sweden, for example.osama bin laden
When we use the term pig, for example, we are referring to the people who systematically violate the peoples' constitutional rights- whether they be monopoly capitalists or police. The term is now being adopted by radicals, hippies, and minority peoples. Even the workers, when the pigs supported strike-breakers like they did as Union Oil where 100 local police came in a cracked strikers' heads, began to call them by their true name.bobby seale
Allen of Bath procured them the same honours from thence; and for some weeks it rained gold boxes: Chester, Worcester, Norwich, Bedford, Salisbury, Yarmouth, Tewkesbury, Newcastle-on-Tyne, Stirling, and other populous and chief towns following the example. Exeter, with singular affection, sent boxes of heart of oak.horace walpole
We call ourselves a “capacity building” organization; self-motivated and self-initiated capacity building. For example, in 30 years, I don’t think I have signed a check for the company.talal abu-ghazaleh
The United States is committed to the worldwide elimination of torture and we are leading this fight by example.george w. bush
It would scarcely be acceptable, for example, to ask in the course of an ordinary conversation what our society holds to be the purpose of work.Alain de Botton
When scientists need to explain difficult points of theory, illustration by hypothetical example - rather than by total abstraction - works well (perhaps indispensably) as a rhetorical device. Such cases do not function as speculations in the pejorative sense - as silly stories that provide insight into complex mechanisms - but rather as idealized illustrations to exemplify a difficult point of theory. (Other fields, like philosophy and the law, use such conjectural cases as a standard device.)stephen jay gould
From the internal reality, by which I means the totality of psychological experiences, it [science] actually separates us. Art, for example, deals with many more aspects of this internal reality than does science, which confines itself deliberately and by convention to the study of one very limited class of experiences the experiences of sense.aldous huxley
Is it not the glory of the people of America, that, whilst they have paid a decent regard to the opinions of former times and other nations, they have not suffered a blind veneration for antiquity, for custom, or for names, to overrule the suggestions of their own good sense, the knowledge of their own situation, and the lessons of their own experience? To this manly spirit, posterity will be indebted for the possession, and the world for the example, of the numerous innovations displayed on the American theatre, in favor of private rights and public happiness.james madison
It was queer. All over England young men were eating their hearts out for lack of jobs, and here was he, Gordon, to whom the very word 'job' was faintly nauseous, having jobs thrust unwanted upon him. It was an example of the fact that you can get anything in this world if you genuinely don't want it.george orwell
If you outlaw half a million people you make martyrs of them. For example, if you outlaw Robin Hood, it is all very well, but if you outlaw a whole group of people around Robin Hood, then Robin Hood and his merry men become legends.baldur von schirach
There is not in history a more splendid and inspiring example of self-control, of self-sacrifice, of courage and of manliness.steve turner
Personally I do not resort to force not even the force of law to advance moral reforms. I prefer education, argument, persuasion, and above all the influence of example of fashion. Until these resources are exhausted I would not think of force.Rutherford B. Hayes, on attempts at an alcohol prohibition amendment, in his Diary (9 October 1883) Diary and Letters of Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1922 - 1926), edited by Charles Richard Williams
Note: "Curst" here refers to being ill-tempered, and "short horns" to being ineffectual, as illustrated by this earliest known example:Alexander Barclay (1509), Ship of Fools, i, 182; adapted in English from Sebastian Brant's German book of the same title (1494).
The technology in question is an example of Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) -- technology designed to restrict the public. Describing it as "copyright protection" puts a favorable spin on a mechanism intended to deny the public the exercise of those rights which copyright law has not yet denied them.Richard Stallman  (Sourced)
The peculiar system of alphabetic numerals evolved by him with 33 consonants of the Sanskrit alphabet (Nagari script) denoted various numbers in conjunction with vowels which themselves did not represent any numerical value. For example khyughr (=khu+yu+ghr) is denoted by 2x100 +30x100^2+4x10^3 =4300,000 which is the number of revolutions of the Sun in a yuga (epoch)In, p.245 (Encyclopaedia of the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine in Non-Western Cultures)
Guide the people by law, subdue them by punishment; they may shun crime, but will be void of shame. Guide them by example, subdue them by courtesy; they will learn shame, and come to be good.Confucius, Analects, 2.3
Translation: The blue distance, the mysterious Heavens, the example of birds and insects flying everywhere are always beckoning Humanity to rise into the air.from "The Successes of Air Balloons in the XIX Century", 1901 
Variant translations: The superior man acts before he speaks, and afterwards speaks according to his actions. The greater man does not boast of himself, But does what he must do. A good man does not give orders, but leads by example.Virtue (or the man of virtue) is not left to stand alone. He who practices it will have neighbors.
The example of the five (daily) prayers is like that of a clear-water river flowing in front of your houses in which a person washes himself five times a day – cleansing him from all dirt.Kanzul `Ummal, Volume 7, Tradition 18931
While they are growing up, the young need adults who can suggest principles and values to them. They feel in need of people who can teach by their example, more than by their words, to expend themselves for high ideals.Homily on the fourth anniversary of the death of John Paul II (2 April 2009)
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
example, whether it be good or bad, has a powerful influence.george washington
