Why should we not boycott the Soviet Union and its supporters inside the country? If we do so, we can Force them to review their stand. Either they give us what we want and what is necessary or they will lose our friendship.hafez al-assad
Even when the pioneer didn't rape Nature, he divorced her a little too easily: he missed the great lesson that both ecology and medicine teach - that Man's great mission is not to conquer nature by main Force but to cooperate with her intelligently but lovingly for his own purposes.
Constantine declared his own will equivalent to a canon of the Church. According to Justinian, the Roman people had formally transferred to the emperors the entire plenitude of its authority, and, therefore, the emperor’s pleasure, expressed by edict or by letter, had Force of law. Even in the fervent age of its conversion the empire employed its refined civilization, the accumulated wisdom of ancient sages, the reasonableness and subtlety of Roman law, and the entire inheritance of the Jewish, the pagan, and the Christian world, to make the Church serve as a gilded crutch of absolutism.Dalberg-Acton, John, 1st Baron Acton
Force is all-conquering, but its victories are short-lived.Abraham Lincoln
How true it is, that there isnothing dead inthis Universe; that what we call dead is only changed, its forces working in inverse order! 'The leaf that lies rotting in moist winds,'says one,'has still Force; else how could it rot?'thomas carlyle
Television has changed the American child from an irresistible Force into an immovable object.Laurence J. Peter
It awes by the majesty of its truths, it agitates by the Force of its compunctions, it penetrates the heart by the tenderness of its appeals, and it casts over the abyss of thought, the shadow of its eternal grandeur.henry giles
It is now necessary to face the truth and to acknowledge against all prejudices that the struggle that the Albanian tribe is leading today is a natural and unavoidable historic struggle for a different political life than that experienced under Turkish rule – different also from that which its neighbours Serbia, Greece and Montenegro would like to Force upon the Albanians.dimitrije tucović
Even when the pioneer didn't rape Nature, he divorced her a little too easily: he missed the great lesson that both ecology and medicine teach - that Man's great mission is not to conquer nature by main Force but to cooperate with her intelligently but lovingly for his own purposes.Lewis Mumford
English Translation: We need to renegotiate our contract with nature. Ecology is a unifying Force that can diminish intolerance and expand our empathy towards others—both human and animal.gregory colbert
Portugal converted a portion of India to the Catholic religion with the arms of her soldiers, with the blood of her martyrs, with the miracles of her saints, and with the fires of her Inquisition. Those who were vanquished in this struggle became Christians and Portuguese. England might imitate the example, except as regards Force.francisco luís gomes
Let but the public mind become once thoroughly corrupt, and all attempts to secure property, liberty or life, by mere Force of laws written on parchment, will be as vain as to put up printed notices in an orchard to keep off the canker-worms.horace mann
This is why we believe that a well-ordered idea of ecology and professionalism can stem only from art – art in the sense of the sole, revolutionary Force, capable of transforming the earth, humanity, the social order etc.. ..Art is, then, a genuinely human medium for revolutionary change in the sense of completing the transformation from a sick world to a healthy one. In my opinion only art is capable of doing it.joseph beuys
And Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural Force abated. ... And there has not arisen a prophet since in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face, in all the signs and the wonders, which the LORD sent him to do in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land, and in all that mighty hand, and in all the great terror which Moses shewed in the sight of all Israel.
But I have lived, and have not lived in vain: My mind may loose its Force, my blood its fire, And my frame perish even in conquering pain; But there is that within me which shall tire Torture and Time, and breathe when I expire. Something unearthly, which they deem not of, Like the remembered tone of a mute lyre, Shall on their softened spirits sink, and move In hearts all rocky now the late remorse of love.Rochdale
Conceit is the finest armor that a man can wear. Upon its smooth, impenetrable surface the puny dagger-thrusts of spite and envy glance harmlessly aside. Without that breast-plate the sword of talent cannot Force its way through the battle of life, for blows have to be borne as well as dealt.jerome k. jerome
Carlisle is right in saying that there is no serious danger to be apprehended from Ireland, but what I want to prevent is any, even the slightest, outbreak, and this is only to be done by showing that we have in Ireland a sufficient Saxon Force to make any movement on the part of the Celts perfectly hopeless, and sure to bring immediate destruction on those who take part in it. Any outbreak of any kind in Ireland would be magnified by our enemies and rivals, and would greatly weaken our political position in Europe.temple, henry, 3rd viscount palmerston
Without a decisive naval Force we can do nothing definitive. And with it, everything honorable and glorious.george washington
Capitalism is an organized system to guarantee that greed becomes the primary Force of our economic system and allows the few at the top to get very wealthy and has the rest of us riding around thinking we can be that way, too - if we just work hard enough, sell enough Tupperware and Amway products, we can get a pink Cadillac.Michael Moore
The recruit must be carefully and sedulously taught when meeting the enemy, even at a trot or canter, to use no Force whatever, otherwise his sword will bury itself to the hilt, and the swordsman will either be dragged from his horse, or will be compelled to drop his weapon if he can.
Anarchists know that a long period of education must precede any great fundamental change in society , hence they do not believe in vote begging, nor political campaigns, but rather in the development of self-thinking individuals . We look away from government for relief, because we know that Force (legalized) invades the personal liberty of man, seizes upon the natural elements and intervenes between man and natural laws; from this exercise of Force through governments flows nearly all the misery , poverty , crime and confusion existing in society .
Let us never underestimate the motivational Force that the belief in Scripture’s divine proximity has upon exegetes. They open the book having already invested their faith in the proposition that it is underwritten by God.
