In viewing the scheme of redemption, I seem like one viewing a vast and complicated machine of exquisite contrivance; what I comprehend of it is wonderful, what I do not, is, perhaps, more so still.
Such a scheme .. the betrayal of the national democracy of Industrial Ulster, would mean a carnival of reaction both North and South, would set back the wheels of progress, would destroy the oncoming unity of the Irish labour movement and paralyse all advanced movements while it lasted.james connolly
I am somewhat uncertain whether there is a definite factual question as to whether natural language handles truth-value gaps … Nor am I even quite sure that there is a definite question of fact as to whether natural language should be evaluated by the minimal fixed point or another, given the choice of a scheme for handling gaps. We are not at the moment searching for the correct scheme.saul kripke
I tried to explain to her the significance of the great poet, but without much success, The Waste Land not figuring very largely in Mam's scheme of things. "The thing is," I said finally, "he won the Nobel Prize." "Well," she said, with that unerring grasp of inessentials which is the prerogative of mothers, "I’m not surprised. It was a beautiful overcoat."Alan Bennett
Speculative Philosophy is the endeavour to frame a coherent, logical, necessary system of general ideas in terms of which every element of our experience can be interpreted. By this notion of 'interpretation' I mean that everything of which we are conscious, as enjoyed, perceived, willed, or thought, shall have the character of a particular instance of the general scheme.charles hartshorne
As I conceive this doctrine to be a gross misrepresentation of the character and moral government of God, and to affect many other articles in the scheme of Christianity, greatly disfiguring and depraving it; I shall show, in a fuller manner than I mean to do with respect to any other corruption of Christianity, that it has no countenance whatever in reason, or the Scriptures; and, therefore, that the whole doctrine of atonement , with every modification of it, has been a departure from the primitive and genuine doctrine of Christianity.joseph priestley
"Arrh! Stars and Mud, ever conjugate, a Paradox to consider, one…for the Astronomer-Royal, perhaps?" His current scheme being, to assail Maskelyne's Sanity, by now and then posing to him Questions that will not bear too much cogitating upon, most lately, Über Bernouillis Brachistochronsprobleme , 1702 by Baron von Boppdörfer ("Mind like a Spanish Blade. Read it at the Risk of your Self-Esteem.") having almost done the Trick.thomas pynchon
Consider a colour scheme that inspires peace and tranquility . A colour palette in lighter hues of blue , lavender , green and rose will create an ambience of relaxation and repose . Define your colour scheme.Willa Roberson-Mitchell, in Decorating Your Lifespace With Inner Vision: An (52 week) Interactive ..., p.87
The Parables of our Lord, while they were addressed to all ranks, and adapted to all circumstances, always held in view the elucidation of the doctrines of Christianity and the enforcement of its precepts : They spake the same language to the prince and the peasant , they guarded the rights of God, and developed the scheme of salvation : they shewed that the present is nothing, but as it is subordinated to the interests of eternity .William Bengo'. Collyer, in Lectures on Scripture parables, p.vi
The Parable of the Two Sons is of the woman of Tekoa spoken at the clever instigation of Joab who was “wily and politic and unscrupulous, [and well able] to read human character and discern human motives through a very small crevice...I was meant to promote Joab’s scheme of self–interest and self-preservation.In p.38 (All the Parables of the Bible)
I strongly reject any conceptual scheme that places our options on a line, and holds that the only alternative to a pair of extreme positions lies somewhere between them. More fruitful perspectives often require that we step off the line to a site outside the dichotomy.Stephen Jay Gould (1989) Wonderful Life p. 51
In my opinion, content protection and rights management exist only as vestigial efforts to preserve existing models of content sales for as long as the bulk of the consumer market remains clueless. History has shown every content-protection scheme invented for consumer-grade goods to have almost no impact on piracy, and little impact on casual copying, except when it has doomed the technology carrying it. This is inevitable.Mark S. Manasse, Compaq Systems Research Center, 2001 
When one enterprise architecture dominates, Grumman plans to use it as a "manager of managers." This single, enterprise-wide network-management architecture will run over all other network-management systems being used: no existing scheme will be scrapped.From Systems Integration (1991). Vol 24. p. 35
"Every age has its peculiar folly: Some scheme, project, or fantasy into which it plunges, spurred on by the love of gain, the necessity of excitement, or the force of imitation."Charles Mackay, Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds
Fools... You´ve accomplished nothing! (Odin´s voice in the heavens: Doom!) Odin! You can´t be free! (Odin´s voice in the heavens: Your wretched scheme is undone; and your black soul, is mine!) Nooo!!! (Odin´s voice in the heavens: An eternety of suffering is the fate of those who challenge the gods!)Who: Doctor Doom
My earlier views on the unsoundness of the Christian scheme of salvation have become clearer and stronger with advancing years.Abraham Lincoln, cited in Jonathan Miller. (2004). A Brief History of Disbelief [TV-Series]. BBC Four.
The real security of Christianity is to be found in its benevolent morality, in its exquisite adaptation to the human heart, in the facility with which its scheme accommodates itself to the capacity of every human intellect, in the consolation which it bears to every house of mourning, in the light with which it brightens the great mystery of the grave.Thomas Babington Macaulay Edinburgh Review January 1830, review of Southey's Colloquies on Society.
