It is possible that the malice of writers has been overrated (by myself among others). Reading their ruminations on their craft, one sees why this writer could not possibly like that one, would indeed Consider him a menace. Literature is a battleground of conflicting faiths, and nobler passions than envy are involved.wilfrid sheed

In order to Consider in the most general way the principle of the production of motion by heat, it must be considered independently of any mechanism or any particular agent.

FGC has traditionally been called "female circumcision," which implies that it is similar to male circumcision. The recognition of FGC's harmful physical, psychological and human rights consequences, however, has led to the use of the term "female genital mutilation" or "FGM," which distinguishes this practice from the much milder practice of male circumcision. Many women who have undergone FGC do not Consider themselves to be mutilated and have become offended by the term "FGM." Recently, other terms such as "female genital cutting" (FGC) have increasingly been used.
Homosexuality involves sexual acts most men Consider not only immoral, but filthy.

[...] In real war an officer may have only one chance at succeeding. Consider each problem.david gemmell
I almost shudder at the thought of alluding to the most fatal example of the abuses of grief which the history of mankind has preserved the Cross. Consider what calamities that engine of grief has produced!
We Consider ourselves to be free because no one in our society is allowed unlimited powerno leader, faction, party or 'class', no majority, no government, church, corporation, trade, or professional association or trade union. The secret of its freedom is that it is composed of a multitude of organisations in the constitution of the best of which is reproduced that diffusion of power which is characteristic of the whole.Michael Joseph Oakeshott
I do not doubt that there has been some ignorance in their having reproved this mode of speech, — that the Virgin Mary is the Mother of God … I cannot dissemble that it is found to be a bad practice ordinarily to adopt this title in speaking of this Virgin: and, for my part, I cannot Consider such language as good , proper, or suitable… for to say, the Mother of God for the Virgin Mary, can only serve to harden the ignorant in their superstitions.john calvin
I do not Consider it an insult, but rather a compliment to be called an agnostic. I do not pretend to know where many ignorant men are sure — that is all that agnosticism means.clarence darrow

"For them, having more is an inalienable right."paulo freire
Nothing can better express the feelings of the scientist towards the great unity of the laws of nature than in Immanuel Kant's words: "Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing awe: the stars above me and the moral law within me."... Would he, who did not yet know of the evolution of the world of organisms, be shocked that we Consider the moral law within us not as something given, a priori, but as something which has arisen by natural evolution, just like the laws of the heavens?Konrad Lorenz
What is important, what I Consider success, is that we make a contribution to our world.
If you Consider that the constant tenor of the gospel precepts is to promote love, peace, and good-will amongst men, you will not doubt that the cultivation of an amiable disposition is a great part of your religious duty; since nothing leads more directly to the breach of charity, and to the injury and molestation of our fellow-creatures than the indulgence of an ill- temper.
When a man assumes a public trust, he should Consider himself as public property.
Your councils be long, your doings be slow, Consider the end.
Do what nature now requires. Set thyself in motion, if it is in thy power, and do not look about thee to see if any one will observe it; nor yet expect Plato's Republic: but be content if the smallest thing goes on well, and Consider such an event to be no small matter.
Observe constantly that all things take place by change, and accustom thyself to Consider that the nature of the Universe loves nothing so much as to change the things which are, and to make new things like them.marcus aurelius
