As long as mixed grills and combination salads are popular, anthologies will undoubtedly continue in favor.
…it must be plain also that we should not anxiously strive for riches and honors by relying on our own diligence or cleverness or by depending on the favor of men or by trusting in the notion of good luck, but that we should always expect the Lord to direct us to the lot he has provided for us.john calvin
The vision I would like to see here is the entrenching of the Jewish and the Zionist state. I very much favor democracy, but when there is a contradiction between democratic and Jewish values, the Jewish and Zionist values are more important.avigdor lieberman
History teaches us that a given view has been abandoned in favor of another by all men, or by all competent men, or perhaps by only the most vocal men; it does not teach us whether the change was sound or whether the rejected view deserved to be rejected. Only an impartial analysis of the view in question, an analysis that is not dazzled by the victory or stunned by the defeat of the adherents of the view concerned could teach us anything regarding the worth of the view and hence regarding the meaning of the historical change.leo strauss
As Western nations became more prosperous, leisure, which had been put off for several centuries in favor of the pursuit of property, the means to leisure, finally began to be of primary concern. But, in the meantime, any notion of the serious life of leisure, as well as men’s taste and capacity to live it, had disappeared.Allan Bloom
Gallantry to women (the sure road to their favor) is nothing but the appearance of extreme devotion to all their wants and wishes , a delight in their satisfaction , and a confidence in yourself as being able to contribute towards it.William Hazlitt, in Treasury of Wisdom, Wit and Humor, Odd Comparisons and Proverbs: Authors, p.159
A man may as certainly miscarry by his seeming righteousness and supposed graces, as by gross sins; and that is, when a man doth trust in these as his righteousness before God, for the satisfying His justice, appeasing His wrath, procuring His favor, and obtaining his own pardon.joseph alleine
With us it is not a question of Bolshevism or democracy, but of life or death. A decision in favor of a Soviet could not be opposed by the Young Turks.ahmed djemal
With aversion for sect superiors and their pomp,I have no wish for monk disciples;Not in search of lay supporters,I court the favor of no one.ippen
Whenever the legislature attempts to regulate the differences between masters and their workmen, its counsellors are always the masters. When the regulation, therefore, is in favor of the workmen, it is always just and equitable; but it is sometimes otherwise when in favor of the masters.Adam Smith
A favor well bestowed is almost as great an honor to him who confers it as to him who receives it.richard steele
Amor é um fogo qu'arde sem se ver, É ferida que dói, e não se sente, É um contentamento descontente, É dor que desatina sem doer. É um não querer mais que bem querer, É um andar solitário entre a gente, É nunca contentar-se de contente, É um cuidar que ganha em se perder. É querer estar preso por vontade, É servir a quem vence o vencedor É ter com quem nos mata lealdade. Mas como causar pode seu favor Nos corações humanos amizade, Se tão contrário a si é o mesmo Amor?luís de camões
A longing for nothing but to long,
A loneliness in the midst of people,
A never feeling pleased when pleased,
A passion that gains when lost in thought.
It's being enslaved of your own free will;
It's counting your defeat a victory;
It's staying loyal to your killer.
But if it's so self-contradictory,
How can Love, when Love chooses,
Bring human hearts into sympathy?
Nô mais, Musa, nô mais, que a Lira tenho Destemperada e a voz enrouquecida, E não do canto, mas de ver que venho Cantar a gente surda e endurecida. O favor com que mais se acende o engenho Não no dá a pátria, não, que está metida No gosto da cobiça e na rudeza D?a austera, apagada e vil tristeza.luís de camões
Most of the change we think we see in life Is due to truths being in and out of favor.robert frost
I dared not dream she loved me. Nay, Her love was proud; and pride is loth To look with favor, own it fond Of one the world loves not to-day … No matter if she loved or no, God knows I loved enough for both, And knew her as you shall not know Till you have known sweet death, and you Have cross'd the dark; gone over to The great majority beyond.joaquin miller
The fact that a belief has a good moral effect upon a man is no evidence whatsoever in favor of its truth.bertrand russell
Man is a rational animal – so at least I have been told. Throughout a long life, I have looked diligently for evidence in favor of this statement, but so far I have not had the good fortune to come across it, though I have searched in many countries spread over three continents.bertrand russell
The position I favor is that economics is a science, but a rather pathological one.Chapter 7, There Is Madness In Their Method, p. 148
The Federal Radio Commission has interpreted the concept of public interest so as to favor in actual practice one particular group ... the commercial broadcasters.E. Pendleton Herring, "Politics and Radio Regulation", Harvard Business Review, January 1935
Democracy is a poor system of government at best; the only thing that can honestly be said in its favor is that it is about eight times as good as any other method the human race has ever tried. Democracy's worst fault is that its leaders are likely to reflect the faults and virtues of their constituents a depressingly low level, but what else can you expect?Robert A. Heinlein in Stranger in a Strange Land (1991 edition), p. 232.
Owing to this favor I need to have no fear of want to the end of my life, and being thus laid under obligation I began to write this work for you, because I saw that you have built and are now building extensively, and that in future also you will take care that our public and private buildings shall be worthy to go down to posterity by the side of your other splendid achievements.Preface, Sec. 3 (dedication to Imperator Caesar)
The North! the South! the West! the East! No one the most and none the least, But each with its own heart and mind, Each of its own distinctive kind, Yet each a part and none the whole, But all together form one soul; That soul Our Country at its best, No North, no South, no East, no West, No yours, no mine, but always Ours, Merged in one Power our lesser powers, For no one's favor, great or small, But all for Each and each for All.Edmund Vance Cooke, Each for All, in The Uncommon Commoner.
Elaine? Do me a favor... [LeChuck: Arrr, THAT be the stuff... Elaine: Anything...] Kick his two-faced butt for me...Who: Guybrush Threepwood
