That which prevents disagreeable flies from feeding on your repast, was once the proud tail of a splendid bird.
Anger's my meat; I sup upon myself, And so shall starve with feeding.william shakespeare
The days of looking the other way while despotic regimes trample human rights, rob their nations' wealth, and then excuse their failings by feeding their people a steady diet of anti-Western hatred are over.2004 Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, 24 Jan.
Love is mutually feeding each other, not one living on another like a ghoul.Bessie Head
Relentlessly feeding on poverty and economic dislocation, a New World Order was taking shape.michel chossudovsky
A stone lies in a river; a piece of wood is jammed against it; dead leaves, drifting logs, and branches caked with mud collect; weeds settle there, and soon birds have made a nest and are feeding their young among the blossoming water plants. Then the river rises and the earth is washed away. The birds depart, the flowers wither, the branches are dislodged and drift downward; no trace is left of the floating island but a stone submerged by the water; — such is our personality.cyril connolly
The disciples were not losing time when they sat beside their Master, and held quiet converse with Him under the olives of Bethany or by the shores of Galilee. Those were their school-hours; those were their feeding times.theodore l. cuyler
If you were to spend a month feeding on the precious promises of God, you would not be going about with your heads hanging down like bulrushes, complaining how poor you are; but you would lift up your heads with confidence, and proclaim the riches of His grace because you could not help it.dwight l. moody
They're feeding the people a line of bull, and they are spinning and people are dying.ray nagin
A regular Friday audience, 90 percent feminine and 100 percent well-bred, sat stoically yesterday through thirty minutes of the most cacophonous world premiere ever heard here - the first performance anywhere of a new Violin Concerto by Arnold Schoenberg. Yesterday's piece combines the best sound effects of a hen yard at feeding time, a brisk morning in Chinatown and practice hour at a busy music conservatory. The effect on the vast majority of hearers is that of a lecture on the fourth dimension delivered in Chinese.arnold schoenberg
A huge parasite in the marketplace, feeding and fattening itself off of local television stations and copyright owners of copyrighted material. We do not like it because we think it wrong and unfair.jack valenti
We have restricted humans from giving ‘free’ food to bears and dolphins because we know that such feeding would make them dependent and lead to their extinction. But when it comes to our own species, we have difficulty seeing the connection between short-term kindness and long-term cruelty; we give women money to have more children, making them more dependent with each child and discouraging them from developing the tools to fend for themselves. The real discrimination against women, then, is ‘free feeding’.warren farrell
When Bonner writes that “natural selection for optimal feeding is then presumed to be the cause of non-motility in all forms,” I can't help suspecting that some plants might do even better if they could walk from shade to sun but the inherited constraints of design never permitted a trial of this intriguing option.stephen jay gould
In short, the root-head turns the crab into a Darwinian cipher, a feeding machine working entirely in the parasite's service. The castrated crab can make no contribution to its own evolutionary history; its "Darwinian fitness" has become flat zero. ...But ever so carefully, for the parasite must maintain the crab in constant and perfect servitude - not draining the host enough to kill this golden goose, but not letting the crab do anything for its own Darwinian benefit.stephen jay gould
[After describing a hopper for feeding winter game:] If you think you're too old to enjoy building such contraptions that only Boy Scouts get a kick out of such nonsense just try it. You may end up by building several.aldo leopold
This was always the hard part. If you knew what was normal to the enemy, then everything became easy: you could lull them to sleep by feeding them normal, and you could scare the hell out of them by suddenly taking normal away. But normal to Afghans and Chechens was so different from normal to Russians that it took a bit of work for a man like Sokolov to establish what it was.neal stephenson
He tires betimes that spurs too fast betimes; With eager feeding food doth choke the feeder.william shakespeare
The plan of the old city, comprises numerous pols [residential complexes], self contained neighborhoods, sheltering large numbers of people, traversed by narrow streets, usually terminating in squares with community wells and chabutaras for feeding birds.Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation, in Heritage walk of Ahmedabad - A City Revisited.
North Korea is strengthening its defense because it has strained relations with certain states. But the militarization of economy is also the most effective way of managing the state. It provides a chance of modest feeding of great number of people.Konstantin Pulikovsky, as quoted in Orient Express (2002).
The biggest challenge [for solar power] is escaping from the economic effects of vendor lock-in where large investments in nuclear and traditional energy sources keep us 'locked-in' to feeding monsters that will bring us down an economic black hole. It's rather like the play The Little Shop of Horrors where a man-eating plant is initially fed small amounts, but then its voracious appetite sends it into a downward spiral swallowing up anyone that gets in its way.Derek Abbott (2009) quoted in Lisa Zyga, "How a Solar-Hydrogen Economy Could Supply the World's Energy Needs", , 24 August 2009
I believe eating well, and with people you love , is about feeding your body , heart , and soul - I used juicing to ensure I covered my nutritional bases every day, and as a tool to restore inner balance if my body needed a break from too much indulgence.Salma Hayek in: Eric Helms The Juice Generation: 100 Recipes for Fresh Juices and Superfood Smoothies, Simon and Schuster, 14 January 2014, p.7
Certain special meals attained ritual status, serving to symbolize central beliefs and doctrines of religious traditions. For example, meals had a central role in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ from the miraculous feeding of the five thousand to the Last Supper and his breaking bread with tax collectors and sinners.B. W. Higman, in "How Food Made History (8 August 2011)", p. 1925
