Thor was the God of Thunder and, frankly, acted like it.
He never complained about his team's bad luck or bad talent, never stopped playing the game for joy, never stopped giving his all, never lost his proud demeanor, and never acted like anything but a winner. He was a symbol of the Cubs' fans undiminishing resilience. If he could be happy to come to the park each afternoon, then so could we.ernie banks
Esteemed chairman of the court, today we have to pass a verdict on the defendants Nicolae Ceau?escu and Elena Ceau?escu who have committed the following offenses: Crimes against the people. They carried out acts that are incompatible with human dignity and social thinking; they acted in a despotic and criminal way; they destroyed the people whose leaders they claimed to be. Because of the crimes they committed against the people, I plead, on behalf of the victims of these two tyrants, for the death sentence for the two defendants.nicolae ceauşescu
To get rid of your doubts, part with your sin. Put away your intemperance, your dishonesty, your unlawful ways of making money, your sensuality, your falsehood, acted or spoken, and see if a holy life be not the best disperser of unwelcome doubts, and new obedience the most certain guide to fresh assurance.James Hamilton
What experience and history teach is this that nations and governments have never learned anything from history, or acted upon any lessons they might have drawn from it.georg wilhelm friedrich hegel
It has been said that that which has made England a great and an energetic nation, is the principle heretofore acted upon of maintaining a very low Peace establishment, while the Peace establishments of the continent have been uniformly high. I do not agree in that view of the subject. For my own part, I believe much of our financial embarrassment to have been caused by our former low Peace establishments, and to this circumstance the failure of many of our military operations may be traced.temple, henry, 3rd viscount palmerston
We know, and we feel, that the vast business of our redemption, arranged in the councils of the far-back eternity, and acted out amid the wonderings and throbbings of the universe, could not have been that stupendous transaction which gave God glory by giving sinners safety, if the inspired account brought its dimensions within the compass of a human arithmetic, or denned its issues by the lines of a human demarcation.
If the Prince acted with spirit he would crush Alva; if Alva acted with spirit, he would crush the Prince.
It is a course which perhaps would not have been necessary had it been possible to form a state composed of wise men, but as every multitude is fickle, full of lawless desires, unreasoned passion, and violent anger, the multitude must be held in by invisible terrors and suchlike pageantry. For this reason I think, not that the ancients acted rashly and at haphazard in introducing among the people notions concerning the gods and beliefs in the terrors of hell, but that the moderns are most rash and foolish in banishing such beliefs.
For if Iran remains exalted, we too shall be exalted. I am a lowly soldier of the Imam Khamenei. Hizbullah youths acted on behalf of the Imam Khomeini, with the aid of Imam Hussein, and sent their blessings to the Iranian people.
As the cathode rays carry a charge of negative electricity, are deflected by an electrostatic force as if they were negatively electrified, and are acted on by a magnetic force in just the way in which this force would act on a negatively electrified body moving along the path of these rays, I can see no escape from the conclusion that they are charges of negative electricity carried by particles of matter.j. j. thomson
The female body played an important role in signaling effeminacy; effeminate sensuality could be expressed either through consorting with woman or imitating them through adopting traditionally feminine modes of dress or appearance . Although largely used to describe men effeminacy, interestingly enough, could also apply to women who did not live to an expected standard of feminity. Given its range of meanings effeminacy, by the mid eighteenth century acted as a “ civilization ’s barometer ".
So well she acted all and every part By turns with that vivacious versatility, Which many people take for want of heart. They err 'tis merely what is call'd mobility, A thing of temperament and not of art, Though seeming so, from its supposed facility; And false though true; for surely they're sincerest Who are strongly acted on by what is nearest.lord byron
