I have nothing but contempt for the kind of governor who is afraid, for whatever reason, to follow the course that he knows is best for the State; and as for the man who sets private friendship above the public welfare — I have no use for him, either.
The moment the first American soldier sets foot on the Japanese mainland, all prisoners of war will be shot.Hideki Tojo
Shaukat Mahal and Sadar Manzil, an architectural curiosity, is a mixture of styles in occidental idioms and sets it apart from the predominantly Islamic architecture of the area. It was designed by a Frenchman, said to be a descendant of an offshoot of the Bourbon kings of France. Post- renaissance and Gothic styles are combined to charming effect here.
I am a composer first and foremost, and have always believed that being able to write memorable melodies is what sets musicians apart. My songs bring images to the listener's mind. The object is to transport my listeners to another place, some place sacred and spiritual that will make them glad they took the ride.bradley joseph
The Party which dares to attack the foundations of our State, which sets itself against religion and does not stop at attacking the person of the All-Highest Ruler must be rooted out to the very last stump.

There are burdens which are bad and blameworthy, and these it is our duty at once to cast away. Such a burden is the evil conscience, from which the true deliverance is the cross of Christ; such a burden is the easily besetting sin, from which the sanctifying Spirit sets free the vigilant and prayerful Christian.
There's many a one who would be idle if hunger didn't pinch him; but the stomach sets us to work.
La superstition met le monde entier en flammes; la philosophie les e teint. Superstition sets the whole world in flames; philosophy puts out the fire.

What sets a canoeing expedition apart is that it purifies you more rapidly and inescapably than any other. Travel a thousand miles by train and you are a brute; pedal five hundred on a bicycle and you remain basically a bourgeois; paddle a hundred in a canoe and you are already a child of nature.pierre trudeau
Let us be content to do little, if God sets us at little tasks. It is but pride and self-will which says, "Give me something huge to fight, and I should enjoy that but why make me sweep the dust?"Charles Kingsley
Or light or dark, or short or tall, She sets a springe to snare them all: All's one to her above her fan She'd make sweet eyes at Caliban.thomas bailey aldrich
It maybe said of them [the Hollanders], as of the Spaniards, that the sun never sets upon their Dominions.
Money alone sets all the world in motion.
Long as there's a sun that sets, Primroses will have their glory; Long as there are violets, They will have a place in story: There's a flower that shall be mine, 'Tis the little Celandine.william wordsworth
If the First Amendment guarantee of freedom of speech and press is to mean anything, it must allow protests even against the moral code that the standard of the day sets for the community.
There be some sports are painful, and their labour Delight in them sets off; some kinds of baseness Are nobly undergone; and most poor matters Point to rich ends. This my mean task Would be as heavy to me as odious, but The mistress which I serve quickens what's dead, And makes my labours pleasures.
