As opposed to the incoherent spectacle of the world, the real is what is expected, what is obtained and what is discovered by our own movement. It is what is sensed as being within our own power and always responsive to our action.
Life is short, even for those who live a long time, and we must live for the few who know and appreciate us, who judge and absolve us, and for whom we have the same affection and indulgence. The rest I look upon as a mere crowd, lively or sad, loyal or corrupt, from whom there is nothing to be expected but fleeting emotions, either pleasant or unpleasant, which leave no trace behind them. We ought to hate very rarely, as it is too fatiguing; remain indifferent to a great deal, forgive often and never forget.sarah bernhardt
Even perfect decisions of the Organization cannot yield expected practical results unless and until they have the response and support in the political will of Member States. I trust that mankind will succeed in halting and reversing the course towards the precipice.
Story in a game is like a story in a porn movie. It's expected to be there, but it's not that important.john d. carmack
On making prisoners of our generals, they expected that we should perish from want of direction and order. It is incumbent, therefore, on our present commanders to be far more vigilant than our former ones, and on those under command to be far more orderly, and more obedient to their officers, at present than they were before…On the very day that such resolution is passed, they will see before them ten thousand Clearchuses instead of one.Xenophon
In this crucial sense, the theory of punctuated equilibrium adopts a very conservative position. The theory asserts no novel claim about modes or mechanisms of speciation; punctuated equilibrium merely takes a standard microevolutionary model and elucidates its expected expression when properly scaled into geological time.stephen jay gould
The first statement of the two principals reads as follows. First: each person is to have an equal right to the most extensive basic liberty compatible with a similar liberty for others. Second: social and economic inequalities are to be arranged so that they are both(a)reasonably expected to be to everyone's advantage, and (b) attached to positions and offices open to all.john rawls
For I had expected always Some brightness to hold in trust , Some final innocence To save from duststephen spender
What all this posturing and fake glamor results in is a vast detachment and cynicism on the part of the artists. Since it's impossible to have respect for an audience that'll take just about anything you care to dish out, and the impassive demeanor is so central to the role, a general numbnose is all that can be expected.

I predict that Anonymous and entities like it will become far more significant over the next few years than is expected by most of our similarly irrelevant pundits and this will, no doubt, turn out to be just as much of an understatement as anything else that has been written on the subject. … This is the future , whether one approves or not, and the failure on the part of governments and media alike to understand , and contend with the rapid change now afoot, ought to remind everyone concerned why it is that this movement is necessary in the first place.
The Victorians expected every building, like every painting, to tell a story, and preferably to point to a moral as well. 199Sir Hugh Maxwell Casson
Oh, how much is today hidden by science! Oh, how much it is expected to hide!
Quand on voit le style naturel, on est tout e tonne et ravi, car on s'attendait de voir un auteur, et on trouve un homme. When we see a natural style we are quite amazed and delighted, because we expected to see an author and find a man.Blaise Pascal
I am afraid that those comments go back to the late 80's. At that time I was a skeptic — the argument based on Koch's postulates to try to distinguish between cause and association. … Today I would regard the success of the many antiviral agents which lower the virus titers (to be expected) and also resolve the failure of the immune system (only expected if the virus is the cause of the failure) as a reasonable proof of the causation argument .walter gilbert
Teachers are expected to reach unattainable goals with inadequate tools. The miracle is that at times they accomplish this impossible task.haim ginott
Death by hanging...well, in view of the whole situation, I never expected anything different. It's all right.arthur seyss-inquart
The realistic timeframe that should be considered to achieve outcomes for Indigenous people equal to the rest of the community is to focus on the outcomes that should be expected for the children to be born in 20 to 25 years from today.
From those to whom much is given, much is expected. (Luke 12:48)
The moral of human life is never simple, and the moral of a story which aims only at being true to human life cannot be expected to be any more so.james anthony froude
He’s expected at noon, and no wight till he comes May profane the great chair, or the porridge of plums; For the best of the cheer, and the seat by the fire, Is the undenied right of the Barefooted Friar.walter scott
In a world that operates largely at random, coincidences are to be expected, but any one of them must always be mistrusted.rex stout
Unless the information overload to which managers are subjected is reduced, any additional information made available by an MIS cannot be expected to be used effectively.
Eloquence may be found in conversations and in all kinds of writings; it is rarely found when looked for, and sometimes discovered where it is least expected.
Concentration of ownership in the media is high and increasing. Furthermore, those who occupy managerial positions in the media, or gain status within them as commentators, belong to the same privileged elites, and might be expected to share the perceptions, aspirations and attitudes of their associates, reflecting their own class interests as well...
When we sent that first message, there weren't any reporters, cameras, tape recorders or scribes to document that major event. … We knew we were creating an important new technology that we expected would be of use to a segment of the population, but we had no idea how truly momentous an event it was.
But he instinctively expects his wage-earners to render him, not only obedience , but also personal deference. If the wage contract is a bargain of purchase and sale like any other, why is the workman expected to touch his hat to his employer ...
