I think there is a danger with young people of being dependent in the sense that they don't acquire any identity or self-image of themselves as thinkers. They just go and look it up or they just chat with someone. In other words, relying on something rather than saying: "Okay, I've got the information, how do I create value from it?"
Mr Kemblesacrificestoomuchto decorum.He ischiefly afraid of being contaminated by too close an Identity with the character herepresents.This isthegreatest vice in an actor, who ought never to bilk his part.william hazlitt
Bodyand soul,Black America reveals the extreme questions of contemporary life, questions of freedom and Identity: How can I be who I am?june jordan
Canada is the only country in the world that knows how to live without an Identity.
Indeed it may be only by risking the incoherence of Identity that connection is possible.judith butler
A big advantage of the serial-number approach to Identity is that things stay the same even as they change.brian hayes
One's worth and self-regard ought to come from individual competitive performance, not from group Identity. Pride based on clan or tribal connections is atavistic. It appeals to people who fear they cannot succeed as individuals, and by diverting their energies it all but ensures they will not succeed as individuals.William A. Henry III
I don't think it is wrong, racist, immoral or anything, for a country to say 'we will decide what the cultural Identity and the cultural destiny of this country will be and nobody else'.john howard
It was measured that the splinters of the Armenian nation that had managed to miraculously escape the Genocide would not be able to recover from the blow, would disappear in the whirlpools on five continents, lose their national Identity, and aptitude to be a political factor. But we, as a nation and as a state, were able to reappear at the international arena to affirm that we continue our eternal journey and that we are determined not to allow for such a crime to ever happen again.serzh sargsyan
A man's ethnic Identity has more to do with a personal awareness than with geography.william saroyan
...[B]eing part of The L Word made me realize how much more television can be that what I had experienced in my lifetime in terms of being able to be of service to people. I had so many fans come up to me who were really deeply appreciative of the show and what it had meant for them and their own sense of Identity and their own sense of inclusion in our society and in our culture.jennifer beals
Liberals tend to regard being subjects of the Queen as an insult to their dignity. But at least the archaic structures by which we are ruled do not force us to define ourselves by blood, soil or faith, and we are protected from the poisonous politics of Identity.john n. gray
Joy, rather than happiness, is the goal of life, for joy is the emotion which accompanies our fulfilling our natures as human beings. It is based on the experience of one's Identity as a being of worth and dignity, who is able to affirm his being, if need be, against all other beings and the whole inorganic world.rollo may
Pornography and violence are by-products of societies in which private Identity has been...destroyed by sudden environmental change.Marshall McLuhan
Any loss of Identity prompts people to seek reassurance and rediscovery of themselves by testing, and even by violence. Today, the electric revolution, the wired planet, and the information environment involve everybody in everybody to the point of individual extinction.Marshall McLuhan
Karl Rove told me about Valerie Plame's Identity on July 11, 2003. I called him because Ambassador Wilson was in the news that week. I didn't know Ambassador Wilson even had a wife until I talked to Karl Rove, and he said that she worked at the Agency and worked on WMD.karl rove
You need the "is of Identity" to describe conspiracy theories. Korzybski would say that proves that illusions, delusions, and "mental" illnesses require the "is" to perpetuate them. (He often said, "Isness is an illness.") Korzybski also popularized the idea that most sentences, especially the sentences that people quarrel over or even go to war over, do not rank as propositions in the logical sense, but belong to the category that Bertrand Russell called propositional functions. They do not have one meaning , as a proposition in logic should have; they have several meanings, like an algebraic function.robert anton wilson
And when languages are lost most of the knowledge that went with them gets lost. People do care about Identity as they want to be different. Nowadays we want access to everything but we don't want to be thought of as no more than people on the other side of the world .
There is a powerful tension in our relationship to technology . We are excited by egalitarianism and anonymity , but we constantly fight for our Identity .
We are not related to the northern Greeks who produced leaders like Philip and Alexander the Great. We are Slavs and our language is closely related to Bulgarian. There is some confusion about our Identity.Gyordan Veselinov
The history of the construction of a Macedonian national Identity does not begin with Alexander the Great in the fourth century B.C. or with Saints Cyril and Methodius in the ninth century A.D. as Macedonian nationalist historians often claim.
Finally, Krste Misirkov, who had clearly developed a strong sense of his own personal national Identity as a Macedonian and who outspokenly and unambiguously called for Macedonian linguistic and national separatism, acknowledged that a Macedonian national Identity was a relatively recent historical development.
Quite apart from the fact that it conflicts with the demands and the content of the word of God, nihilism is a denial of the humanity and of the very Identity of the human being. It should never be forgotten that the neglect of being inevitably leads to losing touch with objective truth and therefore with the very ground of human dignity.
One of Parmenides' merits is to have been the first philosopher who strove to handle general concepts like "being", "not-being", "knowing", " unity ", "Identity", in their systematic connection.
I don't need to worry about Identity theft because no one wants to be me.
Pornography and violence are by-products of societies in which private Identity has been ... destroyed by sudden environmental change.
All forms of violence are quests for Identity. When you live on the frontier, you have no Identity. You're a nobody.
From the equality of rights springs Identity of our highest interests; you cannot subvert your neighbor's rights without striking a dangerous blow at your own.
"[There are] cases of straight queerness, and of other forms of queerness that might not be contained within existing categories or have reference to only one established category...new queer spaces open up (or are revealed) whenever someone moves away from using only one specific sexual Identity category--gay, lesbian, bisexual, or straight--to understand and to describe mass culture, and recognizes that texts and people's responses to them are more sexually transmutable than any one category could signify--excepting, perhaps, that of 'queer.'"
Indeed, in the social jungle of human existence, there is no feeling of being alive without a sense of Identity .
What is that ‘something’, some inherent strength? Doubtless it lies in the liberal character of the Indian civilization, which allows for cross-fertilization with other cultures, without losing its own Identity. Even time (kala), the great devourer, has stood testimony to the fact that the deep foundations of Indian culture could not be shaken either by internal upheavals, however great may have been their magnitude.... " the soul of India lives on!"
