A slender acquaintance with the world, must convince every man, that actions, not words, are the true criterion of the attachment of friends; and that the most liberal professions of good-will are far from being the surest marks of it.
I still carry the Marks on my body of what those "German supermen" did to me then. I was sentenced to death.irena sendler
Libertarians believe the answer to America's political problems is the same commitment to freedom that earned America its greatness: a free-market economy and the abundance and prosperity it brings; a dedication to civil liberties and personal freedom that Marks this country above all others; and a foreign policy of non-intervention, peace, and free trade as prescribed by America's founders.
Totalitarian rule Marks the sharpest contrast imaginable with political rule, and ideological thinking is an explicit and direct challenge to political thinking.bernard crick
Her occasional pretty and picturesque use of dialect wordsthose terrible Marks of the beast to the truly genteel.thomas hardy
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. 788Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Do we want blanks, asterisks and exclamation Marks which people can fill in with their own imaginations, or are we prepared and strong enough to tolerate, even if we do not approve, the strong Anglo-Saxon, realistic and vivid language?john mortimer
The mark of rank in nature is capacity for pain,And the anguish of the singer Marks the sweetness of the strain.
In the theater, while you recognized that you were looking at a house, it was a house in quotation Marks ... on screen, the quotation Marks tend to be blotted out by the camera. The problem was to sustain at any cost the feeling you had in the theater that you were watching a real person, yes, but an intense condensation of his experience, not simply a realistic series of episodes. It isn't easy to do in the theater, but it's twice as hard in film.Arthur Miller
Yiddish, the language which will ever bear witness to the violence and murder inflicted on us, bear the Marks of our expulsions from land to land, the language which absorbed the wails of the fathers, the laments of the generations, the poison and bitterness of history, the language whose precious jewels are the undried, uncongealed Jewish tears.isaac leib peretz
A union of indomitable resolution in the achievement of a given purpose, with patience and moderation in the policy pursued, and with kindly charity and consideration and friendliness to those of opposite belief , Marks the very spirit in which we of to-day should approach the pressing problems of the present .theodore roosevelt
These reports do not contend that weapons of mass destruction remain in Iraq, but nor do they exclude that possibility. They point to lack of evidence and inconsistencies, which raise question Marks, which must bestraightenedout, if weaponsdossiersaretobe closed and confidence is to arise.Hans Blix
I have horrible nightmares of Sir Almwroth Wright's limp sentences wandering through the arid desert of his mind looking for dropped punctuation Marks.Dame Rebecca formerly Cecily Isabel Fairfield West
Christianity, if it is to triumph over pantheism, must absorb it. To our pusillanimous eyes Jesus would have borne the Marks of a hateful pantheism, for he confirmed the Biblical phrase "ye are gods," and so would St. Paul, who tells us that we are of "the race of God." Our century wants a new theology — that is to say, a more profound explanation of the nature of Christ and of the light which it flashes upon heaven and upon humanity.henri-frédéric amiel
In the study of such events we do well to remember that the hand once nailed to the tree holds the chain that binds the past, the present, and the future. His way is in the sea, His path is in the great waters, and His footsteps are not known. But wisdom Marks His plans; truth and justice attend their development, and out of seeming evil He brings triumphant good.john lanahan
We are and remain such creeping Christians, because we look at ourselves and not at Christ; because we gaze at the Marks of our own soiled feet, and the trail of our own defiled garments....Each, putting his foot in the footprint of the Master, and so defacing it, turns to examine how far his neighbor’s footprint corresponds with that which he still calls the Master’s, although it is but his own.George MacDonald
A certain moral imbecility Marks all ethnocentric movements.i. f. stone
The premium so often put in schools upon external "discipline," and upon Marks and rewards, upon promotion and keeping back, are the obverse of the lack of attention given to life situations in which the meaning of facts, ideas, principles, and problems is vitally brought home.john dewey
One can say that the author is an ideological product, since we represent him as the opposite of his historically real function. (When a historically given function is represented in a figure that inverts it, one has an ideological production.) The author is therefore the ideological figure by which one Marks the manner in which we fear the proliferation of meaning.Michel Foucault
One of the Marks of maturity is the need for solitude: a city should not merely draw men together in many varied activities, but should permit each person to find, near at hand, moments of seclusion and peace.Lewis Mumford
Good Friday is the birth of the Church from the pierced side of Jesus.... On the altar of the Cross, the sharing of the broken bread and the common cup at the table of the Last Supper received its full meaning as Supper of the Lamb slain for our redemption . The cross that Marks the place of the Eucharist will always call attention to the awesome mystery of Calvary .
The notion of " system " has gained central importance in contemporary science, society and life. In many fields of endeavor, the necessity of a "systems approach" or "systems thinking" is emphasized, new professions called "systems engineering," "systems analysis" and the like have come into being, and there can be little doubt that this this concept Marks a genuine, necessary, and consequential development in science and world-view .
I often wish … that I could rid the world of the tyranny of facts. What are facts but compromises? A fact merely Marks the point where we have agreed to let investigation cease.
Not arrested development or immaturity but deliberate and mature warfare against God Marks the homosexual. God's penalty is death, and a godly order will enforce it.
I am going to my Father’s; and though with great difficulty I have got hither, yet now I do not repent me of all the trouble I have been at to arrive where I am. My sword I give to him that shall succeed me in my pilgrimage, and my courage and skill to him that can get it. My Marks and scars I carry with me, to be a witness for me that I have fought His battles who will now be my rewarder.
Simplicity, clarity, singleness, these are the attributes that give our lives power and vividness and joy as they are also the Marks of great art. They seem to be the purpose of God for his whole creation.
