So it took an eight-year-old child to bring 'em to their senses.... That proves something — that a gang of wild animals can be stopped, simply because they're still human. Hmp, maybe we need a police force of children.
It is not earthly rank, nor birth, nor nationality, nor religious privilege, which Proves that we are members of the family of God; it is love, a love that embraces all humanity.ellen g. white
Gentlemen of the Jury: The one, absolute, unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never Proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog.George GGraham Vest
The history of medicine Proves that in so far as man seeks to know himself and face his whole nature, he has become free from bewildered fear, despondent shame, or arrant hypocrisy. As long as sex is dealt with in the current confusion of ignorance and sophistication, denial and indulgence, suppression and stimulation, punishment and exploitation, secrecy and display, it will be associated with a duplicity and indecency that lead neither to intellectual honesty nor human dignity.alfred kinsey
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.Elizabeth Barrett Browning
My fond affection thou hast seen, Then judge of my regret To think more happy thou hadst been If we had never met! And has that thought been shared by thee? Ah, no! that smiling cheek Proves more unchanging love for me Than labor'd words could speak.thomas haynes bayly
Let you sleeping head, my love, Human on my faithless arm; Time and fever burns away Individual beauty from Thoughtful children and the grave Proves the child ephemeral; But in my arms till break of day Let the living creature lie: Mortal , guilty , but to me The entirely beautiful .
The death of our close friends and relatives Proves that how close the death is to us!javad alizadeh
"If the generous ideas of youth are too often over- clouded by the sordid views of after-life, that scarcely Proves them to be false"anne brontë
The umbrage given to Cuzzoni by her [ Faustina Bordoni's] coming hither, Proves that as Turkish monarchs can bear no brother near the throne, an aspiring sister is equally obnoxious to a theatrical Queen.charles burney
I was involuntarily struck by the aptitude which the Russian displays for accommodating himself to the customs of the people in whose midst he happens to be living. I know not whether this mental quality is deserving of censure or commendation, but it Proves the incredible pliancy of his mind and the presence of that clear common sense which pardons evil wherever it sees that evil is inevitable or impossible of annihilation.mikhail lermontov
What Proves the hero truly great,Is never, never to despair.david mallet
That a majority of women do not wish for any important change in their social and civil condition, merely Proves that they are the unreflecting slaves of custom.lydia maria child
A single test which Proves some piece of theory wrong is more valuable than a hundred tests showing that idea might be true.arthur c. clarke
Our world is not an optimal place, fine tuned by omnipotent forces of selection. It is a quirky mass of imperfections, working well enough (often admirably); a jury-rigged set of adaptations built of curious parts made available by past histories in different contexts. […] A world optimally adapted to current environments is a world without history, and a world without history might have been created as we find it. History matters; it confounds perfection and Proves that current life transformed its own past.stephen jay gould
But you begin to feel as you go on working that unless painting Proves its right to exist by being critical and self-judging, it has no reason to exist at all - or is not even possible. The canvas is a court where the artist is prosecutor, defendant, jury and judge. Art without a trial disappears at a glance.phillip guston
He who longs for the far-away Proves thereby that he has corrupted the near-at-hand.henry s. haskins
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
The traditional religions worry me. Their long history Proves that they have not understood the meaning of the commandment: Thou shalt not kill. If we want to save this world from unimaginable destruction we should concentrate not on the faraway God , but on the heart of the individual.
Revenge Proves its own executioner.
Nay, in death's hand, the grape-stone Proves As strong as thunder is in Jove's.Abraham Cowley
Some write, confin'd by physic; some, by debt; Some, for 'tis Sunday; some, because 'tis wet; Another writes because his father writ, And Proves himself a bastard by his wit.Edward Young
Hope Proves man deathless. It is the struggle of the soul, breaking loose from what is perishable, and attesting her eternity.
But there are times when patience Proves at fault.Robert Browning
Our nation was founded to perpetuate democratic principles. These principles are that each man is to be treated on his worth as a man without regard to the land from which his forefathers came and without regard to the creed which he professes. If the United States Proves false to these principles of civil and religious liberty, it will have inflicted the greatest blow on the system of free popular government that has ever been inflicted.
