We have erased segregation in those areas of national life to which Federal authority clearly extends. So doing in this, my friends, we have neither sought nor claimed partisan credit, and all such actions are nothing more -- nothing less than the rendering of justice. And we have always been aware of this great truth: the final battle against intolerance is to be fought -- not in the chambers of any legislature -- but in the hearts of men.
Who trusted God was love indeed And love Creation's Final law Though Nature, red in tooth and claw With ravine, shrieked against his creed.Tennyson
I would like to see the Punjab, North-West Frontier Province, Sind and Baluchistan amalgamated into a single State. Self-government within the British Empire, or without the British Empire, the formation of a consolidated North-West Indian Muslim State appears to me to be the Final destiny of the Muslims, at least of North-West India.muhammad iqbal
Names and individuals are unimportant when Germany's Final fate is at stake.franz von papen
It is to be emphasized that no matter how many [amplitude] arrows we draw, add, or multiply, our objective is to calculate a single Final arrow for the event . Mistakes are often made by physics students at first because they do not keep this important point in mind. They work for so long analyzing events involving a single photon that they begin to think that the arrow is somehow associated with the photon [rather than with the event].richard feynman
The acquisition of Canada this year, as far as the neighborhood of Quebec, will be a mere matter of marching, and will give us experience for the attack of Halifax the next, and the Final expulsion of England from the American continent.thomas jefferson
If you complain of people being shot down in the streets, of the absence of communication or social responsibility, of the rise of everyday violence which people have become accustomed to, and the dehumanization of feelings, then the ultimate development on an organized social level is the concentration camp... The concentration camp is the Final expression of human separateness and its ultimate consequence. It is organized abandonment.Arthur Miller
The notion of good, which generally speaking, appears later than the notion of pure duty, particularly in the case of the child, is perhaps the Final conscious realization of something that is the primary condition of the moral life the need for reciprocal affection. And since moral realism is, on the contrary, the result of constraint exercised by the adult on the child, it may perhaps be a secondary growth in comparison to the simple aspiration after good, while still remaining the first notion to be consciously realized when the child begins to reflect upon morality and to attempt formulation.jean piaget
Jesus...is the Final priest who makes all priesthood obsolete not merely the performance of ritual sacrifice, but the office, pomp and circumstance of priestly authority and hierarchy itself. Instead of deferring to any caste of religious hierarchs, followers of the Way are thus now summoned to collectively be a "royal priesthood," a "chosen race" or "holy nation" built not upon offices of any kind but upon transferred allegiance to God's in-breaking "kingdom."
Push yourself again and again. Don't give an inch until the Final buzzer sounds.larry bird
We get richer and richer in filthier and filthier communities until we reach a Final stage of affluent miserya crocus on a garbage heap.
The Final purpose of art is to intensify, even, if necessary, to exacerbate, the moral consciousness of people.Norman Kingsley Mailer
In the Final analysis, all architecture reveals the application of human ingenuity to the satisfaction of human needs. And among those needs are not only shelter, warmth and accommodation, but also the needs, felt at every moment in every part of the world in endlessly different ways, for something more profound, evocative and universal; for beauty, for permanence, for immortality.
The Final purpose of art is to intensify, even, if necessary, to exacerbate, the moral consciousness of people.norman mailer
The only group in America that ought to be the Final arbiters, the only group in America that deserves to scrutinize what we are doing, and then judge its worth... are parents.jack valenti
Who stands fast? Only the man whose Final standard is not his reason, his principles, his conscience, his freedom, or his virtue, but who is ready to sacrifice all this when he is called to obedient and responsible action in faith and in exclusive allegiance to God the responsible man, who tries to make his whole life an answer to the question and call of God. Where are these responsible people?Dietrich Bonhoeffer
I, for my part, acknowledge another precept which says that man must deal the Final blow to those whose downfall is destined by God.Adolf Hitler
We have created an industrial order geared to automatism, where feeble-mindedness, native or acquired, is necessary for docile productivity in the factory; and where a pervasive neurosis is the Final gift of the meaningless life that issues forth at the other end.Lewis Mumford
For I had expected always Some brightness to hold in trust , Some Final innocence To save from duststephen spender
Not only did waging war against Hitler fail to save the Jews, it may be that the war itself brought on the Final Solution of genocide. This is not to remove the responsibility from Hitler and the Nazis, but there is much evidence that Germany's anti-Semitic actions, cruel as they were, would not have turned to mass murder were it not for the psychic distortions of war, acting on already distorted minds. Hitler's early aim was forced emigration, not extermination, but the frenzy of it created an atmosphere in which the policy turned to genocide.howard zinn
A jazz performance centers upon the process of creation. The Final objective is not only the finished product, but the path and process taken towards it.
Had there been no other personal attribute to influence the Final outcome, Tarzan of the Apes, the young Lord Greystoke, would have died as he had lived — an unknown savage beast in equatorial Africa. But there was that which had raised him far above his fellows of the jungle — that little spark which spells the whole vast difference between man and brute — Reason. This it was which saved him from death beneath the iron muscles and tearing fangs of Terkoz.Edgar Rice Burroughs
There is no man on earth who can give a Final judgment on what the most beautiful shape may be. Only God knows.albrecht dürer
In America, success has always been easy to measure. It is the distance between one's origins and one's Final achievement that matters.michael korda
To oscillate between drill exercises that strive to attain efficiency in outward doing without the use of intelligence, and an accumulation of knowledge that is supposed to be an ultimate end in itself, means that education accepts the present social conditions as Final, and thereby takes upon itself the responsibility for perpetuating them. A reorganization of education so that learning takes place in connection with the intelligent carrying forward of purposeful activities is a slow work. It can be accomplished only piecemeal, a step at a time.john dewey
Those who wash their body and cleanse their garments whilst they remain dirty by bad actions and principles, are described by Solomon as "a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet are not washed from their filthiness; a generation, oh how lofty are their eyes!" &c. (Prov. xxx. 12-13). Consider well the principles which we mentioned... as the Final causes of the Law; for there are many precepts, for which you will be unable to give a reason unless you possess a knowledge of these principles...maimonides
I think, here is your emblem To hang in the future sky ; Not the cross, not the hive, But this; bright power , dark peace ; Fierce consciousness joined with Final Disinterestedness; Life with calm death ; the falcon ’s Realist eyes and act Married to the massive Mysticism of stone , Which failure cannot cast down Nor success make proud .
This misplacing hath caused a deficience, or at least a great improficience in the sciences themselves. For the handling of Final causes, mixed with the rest in physical inquiries, hath intercepted the severe and diligent inquiry of all real and physical causes, and given men the occasion to stay upon these satisfactory and specious causes, to the great arrest and prejudice of further discovery. For this I find done not only by Plato , who ever anchoreth upon that shore, but by Aristotle , Galen, and others which do usually likewise fall upon these flats of discoursing causes.
