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.

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
One of the bellwether Marks of the growth and vitality of the Church is the construction of temples. . . . We will keep on working to bring the temples to the people, making it more convenient for Latter day Saints everywhere to receive the blessings which can only be had in these holy houses.gordon b. hinckley
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

Pray, pray, thou who also weepest, And the drops will slacken so; Weep, weep and the watch thou keepest, With a quicker count will go. Think, the shadow on the dial For the nature most undone, Marks the passing of the trial, Proves the presence of the sun.
What is our life? a play of passion; Our mirth the music of division; Our mothers' wombs the tiring-houses be Where we are dressed for this short comedy. Heaven the judicious sharp spectator is, That sits and Marks still who doth act amiss; Our graves that hide us from the searching sun Are like drawn curtains when the play is done. Thus march we, playing, to our latest rest, Only we die in earnestthat's no jest.Sir Walter Raleigh
Roll on, thou deep and dark blue Oceanroll! Ten thousand fleets sweep over thee in vain; Man Marks the earth with ruinhis control Stops with the shore.Rochdale
His thinking threw light in a very introspective way on the entire process of the judicial function. His decisions, beyond just the vote they represented, were sufficiently philosophical to be of enduring interest. He decided the case before him with that respect for its particulars, its special features, that Marks alike the honest artist and the just judge.harlan, john marshall, ii
A rich man’s body is like a premium cotton pillow, white and soft and blank. ‘’Ours’’ is different. My father’s spine was a knotted rope, the kind that women use in villages to pull water from wells; the clavicle curved around his neck in high relief, like a dog’s collar; cuts and nicks and scars, like little whip Marks in his flesh, ran down his chest and waist, reaching down below his hip bones into his buttocks. The story of a poor man’s life is written on his body, in a sharp pen.aravind adiga
We have fed our sea for a thousand years And she calls us, still unfed, Though there's never a wave of all her waves But Marks our English dead.rudyard kipling
The similarity between them is not the taxonomic key to some other, deeper, affinity, and our recognizing its existence Marks the end, not the inauguration, of a train of thought.peter medawar
The semiology and phenomenology of hashtaggery intrigues me. From what I understand, it all began very simply: on Twitter, hashtags - those little checkerboard Marks that look like this # - were used to mark phrases or names, in order to make it easier to search for them among the zillions and zillions of tweets.
Titles are Marks of honest men, and wise : The fool or knave that wears a title lies.Edward Young

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.
