I open with a clock striking, to beget an awful attention in the audience: it also marks the time, which is four o'clock in the morning, and saves a description of the rising sun, and a great deal about gilding the eastern hemisphere. 788
Now, our music is universal. It shares the rhythmic content of African music, music of the Western Hemisphere and various lands of the East, and has merged this rhythm with European harmonies, the soul of the slaves, the blues, and the spirituals to create jazz.Dizzy (John Birks) Gillespie
I am concerned that many young people in the Hemisphere seem to envision the United States as a nation intoxicated by power, addicted to warfare, controlled by a military-industrial complex, and determined to preserve the status quo, that we are against rapid economic and social growth.luis a. ferré
To the World, the World we showWe make the World to laughAnd teach each Hemisphere to knowHow lives the Other Half.Said in 1909, as quoted in Wondrous Difference: Cinema, Anthropology, and Turn-of-the-Century Visual Culture
We don't propose to sit here in our rocking chair with our hands folded and let the Communists set up any government in the Western Hemisphere.lyndon b. johnson
In a march of onlya few hours, I had passed from the western to the eastern Hemisphere and had verified my position at the summit of the world.It was hard to realise that on the first miles of the brief march we had been travelling due north, while on the last few miles of the same march we had been travelling due south, although we had all the time been travelling precisely in the same direction.Robert Edwin Peary
Oft did I wonder why the setting sunShould look upon us with a blushing face:Is't not for shame of what he hath seen done,Whilst in our Hemisphere he ran his race?lyman heath
He devoted himself, his life, his fortune, his hereditary honors, his towering ambition, his splendid hopes, all to the cause of liberty. He came to another Hemisphere to defend her. He became one of the most effective champions of our Independence; but, that once achieved, he returned to his own country, and thenceforward took no part in the controversies which have divided us.lafayette, gilbert du motier, marquis de
All the elements will be seen mixed together in a great whirling mass, now borne towards the centre of the world, now towards the sky; and now furiously rushing from the South towards the frozen North, and sometimes from the East towards the West, and then again from this Hemisphere to the other.leonardo da vinci
Dim as the borrowed beams of moon and stars To lonely, weary, wandering travellers Is reason to the soul; and as on high Those rolling fires discover but the sky Not light us here, so reason's glimmering ray Was lent, not to assure our doubtful way, But guide us upward to a better day: And as those nightly tapers disappear When day's bright lord ascends our Hemisphere, So pale grows reason at religion's sight, So dies, and so dissolves in supernatural light.john dryden
Sweet swan of Avon! what a sight it were To see thee in our water yet appear, And make those flights upon the banks of Thames, That so did take Eliza, and our James. But stay, I see thee in the Hemisphere Advanc'd, and made a constellation there! Shine forth, thou star of poets, and with rage, Or influence, chide, or cheer the drooping stage, Which, since thy flight from hence, hath mourn'd like night, And despairs day, but for thy volumes light.Ben Jonson
Cultural dominance by either the left or the right Hemisphere is largely dependent upon environmental factors.Marshall McLuhan
'You', the ego, live in your left brain. When we say that man is the only creature who spends 99 per cent of his time inside his own head, we mean, in fact, inside his left cerebral Hemisphere. And in the basement of the left Hemisphere is the library full of filing cabinets -- the stuffy room that we mistake for reality.colin wilson
Ye have lost a child nay, she is not lost to you, who is found to Christ; she is not sent away, but only sent before; like unto a star, which going out of our sight, doth not die and vanish, but shineth in another Hemisphere.Samuel Rutherford, p. 53. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))
The Portuguese had undertaken their voyages towards the southern Hemisphere in spite of the science of their day... they followed an irresistible urge, which went against their scientific and religious convictions.Reijer Hooykaas, "The Portuguese Discoveries and the Rise of Modern Science" in Selected Studies in History of Science (1983)
The fundamental question for the United States is how it can cooperate to help meet the basic needs of the people of the Hemisphere despite the philosophical disagreements it may have with the nature of particular regimes. It must seek pragmatic ways to help people without necessarily embracing their governments. It should recognize that diplomatic relations are merely practical conveniences and not measures of moral judgment.Nelson A. Rockefeller, "Quality of Life in the Americas," text of the Rockefeller Mission report, The Department of State Bulletin, December 8, 1969, p. 515.
Oft did I wonder why the setting sun Should look upon us with a blushing face: Is't not for shame of what he hath seen done, Whilst in our Hemisphere he ran his race?lyman heath
Our goal is not victory of might but the vindication of right not peace at the expense of freedom, but both peace and freedom, here in this Hemisphere and, we hope, around the world. God willing, that goal will be achieved.John F. Kennedy in his Radio and televison address about the Cuban missile crisis (22 October 1962).
Ye have lost a child nay, she is not lost to you, who is found to Christ; she is not sent away, but only sent before; like unto a star, which going out of our sight, doth not die and vanish, but shineth in another Hemisphere.P. 53. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))
Teachers have three main tasks: first, to train both hemispheres not only the verbal, symbolic, logical left Hemisphere, which has always been trained in the traditional education, but also the relational, holistic right Hemisphere, which is largely neglected in today's schools; second, to train students to use the cognitive style suited to the tasks at hand; and third, to train students to be able to bring both styles both hemispheres to bear on a problem in an integrated manner.Betty Edwards (1979) The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain
There is good evidence for a sensorimotor self , an emotional and motivational self probably represented in the right Hemisphere, a social self-system, and perhaps an appetitive self. All these self-systems ordinarily work in reasonable coordination with each other, though they can be in conflict at times.Bernard J. Baars, "Understanding Subjectivity: Global Workspace Theory and the Resurrection of the Observing Self" Journal of Consciousness Studies, 3, No. 3, 1996, pp. 211-16
