Nothing is more hopeless than a scheme of merriment.1759 In The Idler, no.58, 26 May.
Securitycan only be obtained bya scheme by whichthe nations of Europe and outside agree together that all will guarantee each, and each will guarantee all. The purposes ofthewar will be attained ifthereisa League of Nations with an absolute and decisive veto upon any mere aggression, and consideration of any legitimate claims that any of the countries engaged in the war may be able to make good.1916 House of Commons, 21 Oct.
Not a step can we take in any direction without perceiving the most extraordinary traces of design; and the skill everywhere conspicuous is calculated in so vast a proportion of instances to promote the happiness of living creatures, and especially of ourselves, that we feel no hesitation in concluding that, if we knew the whole scheme of Providence, every part would appear to be in harmony with a plan of absolute benevolence.brougham, henry, 1st baron brougham and vaux
Christianity is no mere scheme of doctrine or of ethical practice, but is instead a kind of miracle, a power out of nature and above, descending into it; a historically supernatural movement on the world, that is visibly entered into it, and organized to be an institution in the person of Jesus Christ.horace bushnell
Every man, noble and simple alike, should hold his land as a pledge of god behaviour. His duties, to King, lord, and neighbour, should be settled once and for all; and, if he failed in them, he should be turned out of his home and left to starve. It was a drastic scheme; but a conqueror holding a conquered country by the force of the sword cannot afford to be squeamish.edward jenks
The common law of chattels, that is to say, the law ultimately adopted by the King's courts for the regulation of disputes about the ownership and possession of goods, was, to be a substantial extent, a by-product of that new procedure which had been mainly introduced to perfect the feudal scheme of land law.edward jenks
We doubt not the destiny of our country that she is to accomplish great things for human nature, and be the mother of a nobler race than the world has yet known. But she has been so false to the scheme made out at her nativity, that it is now hard to say which way that destiny points.margaret fuller
I have begun drafting a memorandum for the prosecuting authorities, together with all evidence necessary to establish not only the existence of numerous specific instances of scientific or economic fraud in relation to the official "global warming" storyline but also the connections between these instances, and the overall scheme of deception that the individual artifices appear calculated to reinforce.christopher monckton
He [the "specialist"] is one who, out of all that has to be known in order to be a man of judgment, is only acquainted with one science, and even of that one only knows the small corner in which he is an active investigator. He even proclaims it as a virtue that he takes no cognisance of what lies outside the narrow territory specially cultivated by himself, and gives the name of "dilettantism" to any curiosity for the general scheme of knowledge.josé ortega y gasset
The bourgeoisie first betrayed society through capitalism and finance, and now labor betrays it by embracing a scheme of things which sees profit only, not duty and honor, in work. This view will seem hopelessly unrealistic to those who do not admit that sentiment toward the whole is the only ultimate means of measuring value.richard weaver
We want a good architect and Town Planner to help us in preparing a scheme for [Bhubaneshwar]...The remuneration which will be paid to Dr. H Otto Koenigsberger, may be settled by mutual agreement.Ravi Kalia quoting a letter addressed by Premier Mahtab of Orissa to the Mysore Government in December 1947, in “Bhubaneswar: From a Temple Town to a Capital City (1994)”, p,125
I am looking forward to the opportunity of helping you in this bold and interesting scheme.Dr.H. Otto Koenigsberger’s reply after the Government of Mysore had agreed to spare his services. However, soon after this he accepted the Directorship of the Department of Housing in the health Ministry of the Government of India at Delhi. Quoted in p.125
The Stoical scheme of supplying our wants by lopping off our desires, is like cutting off our feet when we want shoes.Jonathan Swift,Thoughts on Various Subjects from Miscellanies (1711-1726)
It was not long before English Law took the one step needed to produce the modern scheme of legal remedies. And when it did, it used the Writ of Trespass as the starting point.Chapter V, The Law Of Chattels, p. 67 (A Short History Of The English Law (First Edition) (1912))
Before reaching this final means to moksha, the person wanting moksha has to fulfil a number of qualifications. The Vedantins in general admit this and they suggest a whole scheme of discipline , divided into karma-yoga and jnana-yoga.p.99 (Purusharthas: dharma, artha, kama, moksha: their relevance and currency today and for tomorrow, doctoral thesis presented at the Mahatma Gandhi University)
It should be borne in mind, however, that it was not until after the declaration of the constitution that the idea "Turkey for the Turks" took definite shape and developed into the scheme of accomplishing its purpose by the final extinction of all the Christian populations of that blood-soaked land...George Horton in The Blight of Asia (1926). Horton was the American General Consul in Smyrna from 1911 until 1917, then again after the war until 1922 - and was a direct eyewitness to the city's destruction and the massacreing of the city's Greeks and Armenians by the forces of Kemal Ataturk
I think, Some shrewd man first, a man in judgment wise, Found for mortals the fear of gods, Thereby to frighten the wicked should they Even act or speak or scheme in secret.Sisyphus, as translated by R. G. Bury, and revised by J. Garrett.
Ptolemy... against the champions of this or that cosmology of the heavens... had dared to claim that it is legitimate to interpret the facts of astronomy by the simplest geometrical scheme which will 'save the phenomena,' no matter whose metaphysics might be upset. His conception of the physical structure of the earth, however, prevented him from carrying through in earnest this principle of relativity, as his objections to the hypothesis that the earth moves amply show.Edwin Arthur Burtt, The Metaphysical Foundations of Modern Physical Science (1924)
What a wonderful and amazing scheme have we here of the magnificent Vastness of the Universe! So many Suns, so many Earths, and every one of them stock’d with so many Herbs, Trees and Animals, and adorn’d with so many Seas and Mountains! And how must our wonder and admiration be encreased when we consider the prodigious distance and multitude of the Stars?christiaan huygens
You can use C++ if you want with GNOME, but we don't assume that you're going to write C++. It's to a large extent based on scheme, which is a dialect of LISP . LISP being the most powerful and cleanest of languages, that's the language that's the GNU project always prefers.Richard Stallman in: "GNU's Not Linux" Network World Fusion, 01/11/99
