I am happy to say that everyone that I have met in my life, I have gained something from them; be it negative or positive, it has enforced and reinforced my life in some aspect.
It was fun yet challenging to play the dual roles. I'm a really nice guy, and the character [of Dubious] is egocentric and hard-edged, so I had to pull out the Negative aspects of me to attribute to the role.carson grant
My attitude to peace is rather based on the Burmese definition of peace - it really means removing all the Negative factors that destroy peace in this world. So peace does not mean just putting an end to violence or to war, but to all other factors that threaten peace, such as discrimination, such as inequality, poverty.
The UFO research and investigation business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps of corrupt ideology run free, agenda dictates, delusion is rampant and ignorance prevails. The infestation of wrongful motivation and the beggarly depths of belief reign supreme amidst a universal disregard for truth and factual actuality... where good men die like dogs. There's also a Negative side . . .kenny young
Great Negative, how vainly would the Wise Enquire, define, distinguish, teach, devise, Didst thou not stand to point their dull Philosophies? Is, or is not, the Two great Ends of Fate, And, true or false, the Subject of Debate, That perfect, or destroy, the vast Designs of Fate.wilmot, john, 2nd earl of rochester
The 1960s weren’t the 1920s again; they were the Liberal Arts expressed in the Negative. The 1970s, despite the hedonism, weren’t the 1920s; they were the Negative out to get all the rewards formerly held by the Positive. The Goat and Adding Machine Ritual is now.
There are no negatives in life, only challenges to overcome that will make you stronger.Eric R. bates
If hooking a car battery up to a monkey's brain will help find the cure for AIDS and save somebody's life, I have two things to say … the red is positive and the black is Negative.Nick DiPaolo
Resistants were on the right side, Salò Republic's combatants on the wrong one. (...) One cannot equate who was fighting for a right cause of equality and freedom, and who, apart of goodfaith, was on the wrong side. (...) The judgement of the Right [on Fascism] have to be Negative, due to freedom limitation. (...) We cannot deny ourselves history, and Fascism was a dictatorship that denied some fundamental freedoms.gianfranco fini
The communications challenge faced by reform movements the world over and illustrated by this incident is this: in the modern communications business, particularly in the case of television, Negative is more newsworthy than positive; short term is more newsworthy than long term; disagreement is more newsworthy than agreement; emotion-laden critiques are more newsworthy than well reasoned proposals for constructive change; discord, threats to order, and bad government are much more newsworthy than peace, order, and good government.preston manning
In every human being one or the other of these two instincts is predominant: the active or positive instinct to offer hospitality, the Negative or passive instinct to accept it. And either of these instincts is so significant of character that one might as well say that mankind is divisible into two great classes: hosts and guests.max beerbohm
When I am tired, it is easy to believe that my exhaustion is the reason I am depressed and lonely and uninspired. But when I am well-rested [sic], I can realize that these Negative feelings are not a result of too little sleep. They are a result of my being a miserable, hopeless, misanthropic wretch.john s. hall
Make a party over your Negative thoughts, assuring them that they are the safest, the most cautious, company you have ever kept. At first they will swallow your flattery, but then suddenly, stricken with shame, and knowing themselves for the impostors they are, out and off they will go.henry s. haskins
This idea is confirmed in Scripture; it is distinctly stated that one sole thing, fear of God, is the object of the whole Law with its affirmative and Negative precepts, its promises and its historical examples, for it is said, "If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this Law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, the Lord thy God" (Deut. xxviii. 58) This is one of the two purposes of the Akedah (sacrifice or binding of Isaac).maimonides
[Feminism] is alienating women from their own bodies … because they don’t understand that they have something that men want , okay? So they’re encouraged to interpret all male lust as oppressive and victimizing and Negative, instead of seeing that it is up to them to husband this flame. They have a flame, and it’s enormously powerful…camille paglia
I did not share the enthusiasm of certain politicians for the National Front leader, it was because I had noticed, in the past, some strange contradictions between Mossadeq's declared ends and his actions. Officially he defended nationalist anti-colonialism and was the most intransigent patriot who declared that no concessions or advantages should be granted to foreign powers. He described his doctrine as a "Negative balance" and in fact his greatest failing was that he was Negative.muhammad reza pahlavi
There must be a positive and Negative in everything in the universe in order to complete a circuit or circle, without which there would be no activity, no motion.
The essential freedom, the ultimate and final freedom that cannot be taken from a man, is to say No. This is the basic premise in Sartre 's view of human freedom: freedom is in its very essence Negative, though the negativity is also creative.
Transnational Corporations must be legally accountable for the Negative human rights impacts of their activities.
This organization of functional discourse is of vital importance; it serves as a vehicle of coordination and subordination. The unified, functional language is an irreconcilably anti-critical and anti-dialectical language. In it, operational and behavioral rationality absorbs the transcendent, Negative, oppositional elements of Reason.herbert marcuse
A 4-year-old reading a book about a talking bear, or in my case a bear that hugs trees, it's an innocent little fantasy. If a child loves picking up that book every night, I think the positive outweighs the Negative - if there is any Negative. I'd strongly argue there isn't.
I went to hear Father Divine and he had a sermon and his subject was 'you got to accentuate the positive and eliminate the Negative.' And I said 'Wow, that's a colorful phrase!'johnny mercer
