A person is a process, one that leads to death...Randall Jarrell
Here we have seen that their early history is still largely an open question. They may have had Greek origins: Whatever process produced the Greek-speakers (of that is how one defines "Greek") who lived south of Olympus may have also produced the Makedones who wandered out of the western mountains to establish a home and a kingdom in Pieria.Eugene N. Borza, "In The Shadow of Olympus", pp. 277-278, Princeton University Press

The Sama Veda focuses on the musical chanting patterns of the [[w:Mantra|Mantras and the subtle form of Yajna by defining the latter as the process of mental oblation on the surface of internal emotions through the cosmic radiation of the omnipresent subtle energy of sound .in p.4 (The Integrated Science of Yagna)

It is, of course, clear that a country with a large foreign population must endeavour, through its schools, to assimilate the children of immigrants? It is, however, unfortunate that a large part of this process should be effected by means of a somewhat blatant nationalism.1935 In Praise of Idleness,'Modern Homogeneity'.

Salonga
One thing about school - I always had this attitude that I was in school to learn, and attempted to do whatever was involved in that process, while school had this attitude that I was there to earn grades, which I couldn't care less about. Unsurprisingly, my grades weren't very good.bram cohen
A great part of its theories derives an additional charm from the peculiarity that important propositions, with the impress of simplicity on them, are often easily discovered by induction, and yet are of so profound a character that we cannot find the demonstrations till after many vain attempts; and even then, when we do succeed, it is often by some tedious and artificial process, while the simple methods may long remain concealed.carl friedrich gauss
If we are going to make the change from community to communitas, and not just end up with an unsustainable adrenaline-junkie culture, we must have a sophisticated process to form people into adventurer-disciples.alan hirsch
Gentlemen, we are going to relentlessly chase perfection, knowing full well we will not catch it, because nothing is perfect. But we are going to relentlessly chase it, because in the process we will catch excellence. I am not remotely interested in just being good.vince lombardi
"Tonality itself - with its process of instilling expectations and subsequently withholding promised fulfillment until climax - is the principal musical means during the period from 1600 to 1900 for arousing and channeling desire."susan mcclary
The process by which civilization, as an abstract entity distinct from the societies in which it is embodied, dies or is reborn is a very significant one.carroll quigley
Globalization presumes sustained economic growth. Otherwise, the process loses its economic benefits and political support.paul samuelson
However, as every parent of a small child knows, converting a large object into small fragments is considerably easier than the reverse process.andrew s. tanenbaum
Even personal tastes are learned, in the matrix of a culture or a subculture in which we grow up, by very much the same kind of process by which we learn our common values. Purely personal tastes, indeed, can only survive in a culture which tolerates them, that is, which has a common value that private tastes of certain kinds should be allowed.kenneth boulding
My favorite process is writing, from day one. The songs I have written throughout the years were a real great opportunity for me to communicate, because I think tha'ts my prime objective on this planet.gloria estefan
But the process of social change was not merely a matter of new inventions pressing on old institutions: it was a matter of new classes displacing old ones.robert heilbroner
The education of our people should be a lifelong process by which we continue to feed new vigor into the lifestream of the Nation through intelligent, reasoned decisions. Let us not think of education only in terms of its costs, but rather in terms of the infinite potential of the human mind that can be realized through education. Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a private hope and dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength for our Nation.john f. kennedy
Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death .anaïs nin
We need to create an enterprise culture, a society where successful entrepreneurs are respected and admired, not treated with suspicion and disdain. And in which we see less envy of other peoples' achievements and mistrust of commerce, and a greater readiness to get out there and join in the process.norman tebbit
Monologues, in which one person does all the talking, are longer speeches than participants have expressed so far. This does not mean that a monologue expresses only one point of view, its interest lies in the variety of perspectives that the speaker may present as part of the argument . Monologues are valuable components in the devising process and can serve as introduction, reflections and/or as links between scenes.Monica Prendergast, Juliana Saxton, in "Applied Drama: A Facilitator's Handbook for Working in Community", p.156
Thought is reified as an autonomous, automatic process, aping the machine it has itself produced, so that it can finally be replaced by the machine. Enlightenment pushed aside the classical demand to “think thinking.” ... . Mathematical procedure became a kind of ritual of thought.E. Jephcott, trans., p. 19 (Sourced)
Sometimes the Lord gives us a free sample of religious experience, but for more, we must pay a price with the currency of sincere dedication to the process of cleansing.(?)
I believed the novel to be a messy expression of that mysterious banality ‘the creative process’- not unlike life, I suppose.In p. 64 (Understanding Lorrie Moore)
The panentheistic God / universe setup is like a mutual admiration society : God needs you, and you need God. … God depends on the world, and the world depends on God … Since God is always growing , or "in process," he never perfectly achieves his aims. In metaphorical terms, God is always on the path but he never reaches his destination. The actual is what he is; the potential is what he is eternally becoming.Norman Geisler, as quoted in The Last Temptation of Christ Denied (1989) by Bob Passatino and Gretchen Passatino
In man, social intercourse has centred mainly on the process of absorbing fluid into the organism, but in the domestic dog and to a lesser extent among all wild canine species, the act charged with most social significance is the excretion of fluid.Olaf Stapledon
Yet I doubt not thro' the ages one increasing purpose runs, And the thoughts of men are widened with the process of the suns.Alfred Tennyson, Locksley Hall (1835, published 1842), Stanza 69.
Several decisions of this Court make clear that freedom of personal choice in matters of marriage and family life is one of the liberties protected by the Due process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. . . .
