So far you have been treated as an officer and a gentleman, but don't think that this will go on if you don't behave better than you have done. You have two hours left in which to confess everything. If you don't, I shall hand you over to the Gestapo, who are used to dealing with such gangsters and criminals — you won't enjoy their methods a bit.reinhard heydrich
Knowledge is indivisible. When people grow wise in one direction, they are sure to make it easier for themselves to grow wise in other directions as well. On the other hand, when they split up knowledge, concentrate on their own field, and scorn and ignore other fields, they grow less wise even in their own field.Isaac Asimov

I am obnoxious to each carping tongue Who says my hand a needle better fits, A poet's pen all scorn I should thus wrong For such despite they cast on female wits; If what I do prove well, it won't advance, They'll say it's stolen, or else, it was by chance.1678 Several Poems Compiled with Great Variety of Wit and Learning,'The Prologue'.
And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.Bible (Old Testament)

I am now here in Congress... I am at liberty to vote as my conscience and judgment dictates to be right, without the yoke of any party on me, or the driver at my heels, with his whip in hand, commanding me to ge-wo-haw, just at his pleasure. Look at my arms, you will find no party hand-cuff on them!Davy Crockett, letter (28 January 1834), reported in A Narrative of the Life of David Crockett (1834), p. 113, final paragraph.

If, on the other hand, your primary goal is [[w:Wholeness}wholeness]], egalitarianism , autonomy, and an intact world, then there's quite a lot wrong with it.John Zerzan, in You May Be an Anarchist — And Not Even Know It
We now demand the light artillery of the intellect ; we need the curt, the condensed, the pointed, the readily diffused / in place of the verbose , the detailed, the voluminous, the inaccessible. On the other hand, the lightness of the artillery should not degenerate into pop-gunnery/by which term we may designate the character of the greater portion of the newspaper press/their sole legitimate object being the discussion of ephemeral matters in an ephemeral manner.Edgar Allan Poe, in The Virginia Spectator, p.54
We must never give a free hand to those who want to subjugate us, draw this line so that New York will never become New Mecca.geert wilders
Love's torments made me seek the chase; Rifle in hand, I roam'd apace. Down from the tree, with hollow scoff, The raven cried: "Head-off! head off!"Heinrich Heine
If there are sound reasons or bases for the points you demand, then there is no need for violence . On the other hand, when there is no sound reason that concessions should be made to you but mainly your own desire, then reason cannot work and you have to rely on force . Thus using force is not a sign of strength but rather a sign of weakness .Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama, in "The Nobel Evening Address" in The Dalai Lama : A Policy of Kindness (1990), p. 115

Better one byrde in hand than ten in the wood.Part I, chapter 11. (Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919))
These eyes, tho' clear To outward view of blemish or of spot, Bereft of light, their seeing have forgot, Nor to their idle orbs doth sight appear Of sun, or moon, or star, throughout the year, Or man, or woman. Yet I argue not Against Heaven's hand or will, nor bate a jot Of heart or hope; but still bear up and steer Right onward.john milton
In excited states of the public mind they have scarcely a discretion at all; the tendency of the public perturbation determines what shall and what shall not be dealt with. But, upon the other hand, in quiet times statesmen have great power; when there is no fire lighted, they can settle what fire shall be lit. And as the new suffrage is happily to be tried in a quiet time, the responsibility of our statesmen is great because their power is great too.walter bagehot
This is a man's invention and his hand.william shakespeare
Once the truth is denied to human beings, it is pure illusion to try to set them free. Truth and freedom either go together hand in hand or together they perish in misery.Encyclical Fides et Ratio, 14 September 1998
Christ seeketh your help in your place; give Him your hand.P. 124. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))
Hail to thee, lady! and the grace of heaven, Before, behind thee and on every hand, Enwheel thee round!william shakespeare
Further, the state is by nature clearly prior to the family and to the individual , since the whole is of necessity prior to the part; for example, if the whole body be destroyed, there will be no foot or hand , except in an equivocal sense, as we might speak of a stone hand; for when destroyed the hand will be no better than that. But things are defined by their working and power ; and we ought not to say that they are the same when they no longer have their proper quality, but only that they have the same name .Book I, Part II
Thus says Yahweh to his anointed, to Cyrus, whom he has taken by his right hand to subdue nations before him and strip the loins of kings, to force gateways before him that their gates be closed no more: I will go before you levelling the heights. I will shatter the bronze gateways, smash the iron bars. I will give you the hidden treasures, the secret hoards, that you may know that I am Yahweh.Isaiah, in Isaiah 45: 1-3
