Incarcerating people for their [drug] consumption choices has the consistency of arresting a survivor of suicide for attempted murder.
I was the only SS leader in Russia who was not assassinated or upon whom an assassination was never Attempted. I could walk anywhere without a bodyguard.erich von dem bach
In keeping with Channel 40's policy of bringing you the latest in blood and guts and in living color, you are going to see another first -- Attempted suicide.Christine Chubbuck
One thing about school - I always had this attitude that I was in school to learn, and Attempted to do whatever was involved in that process, while school had this attitude that I was there to earn grades, which I couldn't care less about. Unsurprisingly, my grades weren't very good.bram cohen
Like twentieth-century Iran, the remnant of the Persian Empire, Ethiopia under Haile Selassie Attempted to preserve the absolutist state throught an accommodation with modernizing forces in his own terms without completely subduing traditionalists. This was not a strategy of Haile Selassie's own choosing. Instead, he was overtaken by events and forced to deal with contradictions that were from the very beginning too formidable to be managed in the long term.selassie, haile i, of ethiopia
...and I longed to return to the peak to explore some of the many ridges and faces which as yet had never been Attempted. I now realise how lucky I was to have had this extraordinary peak virtually to myself;...eric shipton
Men's consciences ought in no sort to be violated, urged, or constrained. And whenever men have Attempted any thing by this violent course, whether openly or by secret means, the issue has been pernicious, and the cause of great and wonderful innovations in the principallest and mightiest kingdoms and countries...roger williams
It was in old days, with our learned men, an interesting and oft-investigated question, "What is the origin of light?" and the solution of it has been repeatedly Attempted, with no other result than to crowd our lunatic asylums with the would-be solvers. Hence, after fruitless attempts to suppress such investigations indirectly by making them liable to a heavy tax, the Legislature, in comparatively recent times, absolutely prohibited them.edwin abbot
I think that it is a fallacy to suppose that helpful cooperation in the future will be assured by the Attempted compulsion of an inflexible rule. Rather will such cooperation depend upon the fostering of firm friendships springing from an appreciation of community ideals, interests, and purposes, and such friendships are more likely to be promoted by freedom of conference than by the effort to create hard and fast engagements.charles evans hughes
Nothing[...] will ever be Attempted, if all possible objections must be first overcome.samuel johnson
Charismatic Lithuanian baritone Vytautas Juozapaitis was a spirited, energetic Don Giovanni who held the audience's rapt attention whenever he was on stage. He had an authoritative sound that could be romantically enticing in an attempt to seduce a lady, but could change instantly into a commanding tone when anyone Attempted to thwart his will.vytautas juozapaitis
Each morning sees some task begin, Each evening sees it close Something Attempted, something done, Has earned a night's repose.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Minimal sculpture is composed of extremely simple, monumental geometric forms made of fibreglass , plastic , sheet metal, or aluminum , either left raw or solidly painted with bright industrial colours. Like the painters , minimalist sculptors Attempted to make their works totally objective, unexpressive, and non-referential.

How necessary it is carefully to consider the language of learned Judges, especially when you are dealing with language which is admitted to be only a dictum and not a decision, and when it is Attempted to use that language for the purpose of founding on it an article of a code of law.

The dilemma created by the existentialist “leap” is inescapable. Every Attempted escape becomes an escape from existentialism itself. … It is one of the characteristics of existentialism that its adherents are continually on the verge of apostasy.
Alcmaeon was, says [J.] Wachtler, the first who Attempted to explain the phenomenon of sound and our perception of it by reference to the structure of the ear itself. Empedocles to some extent follows or agrees with him. ...Empedocles teaches that hearing is caused by the impact of the air-wave against the cartilage which is suspended within the ear, oscillating as it is struck, like a gong.
Zeno, the disciple of Parmenides , having Attempted to kill the tyrant Demylus, and failing in his design, maintained the doctrine of Parmenides, like pure and fine gold tried in the fire, that there is nothing which a magnanimous man ought to dread but dishonor, and that there are none but children and women, or effeminate and women-hearted men, who fear pain. For, having with his own teeth bitten off his tongue, he spit it in the tyrant's face.
The preservation of the Jew was certainly not casual. He has endured through the power of a certain ideal, based on the recognition of a Higher Power in human affairs. Time after time in his history, moreover, he has been saved from disaster in a manner, which cannot be described excepting as 'providential.' The author has deliberately Attempted to write this book in a secular spirit; he does not think that his readers can fail to see in it, on every page, a higher immanence.cecil roth
The dilemma of traditional sex research lay in the unconscious, but unquestioningly assumed division into opposing drives and hereditary factors . . . The division into heterosexuality and homosexuality, into heterosexuals and homosexuals, is also an artifact that rests on a grave mistake, namely, on the assumption that a fundamentally different model is necessary to explain heterosexual and homosexual behavior. The entire investigation of etiology was ideologically loaded beforehand because it separated a segment of the sexual continuum and Attempted to make analyses with the help of fundamentally different concepts.
When late I Attempted your pity to move, why seemed you so deaf to my prayers? Perhaps it was right to dissemble your love, but why did you kick me downstairs?
