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.
Inescapably, the realization was being borne in upon my preconditioned mind that the centuries-old and universally accepted human concept of wolf character was a palpable lie. On three separate occasions in less than a week I had been completely at the mercy of these 'savage killers'; but far from attempting to tear me limb from limb, they had displayed a restraint verging on Contempt, even when I invaded their home and appeared to be posing a direct threat to the young pups.
This only grant me, that my means may lie Too low for envy, for Contempt too high.Abraham Cowley
Pantagruelism est certaine gayeté d'esprit conficte en mepris des choses fortuites. Pantagruelism is a certain liveliness of mind made in Contempt of chance happenings.françois rabelais
Muslims shared many of the deep-seated characteristics of the Anglo-Saxon elite—an intuitive resentment of culture, an amicable Contempt for women, a proclivity for riding about on horses, a pleasure in discipline, and a covert homophilia.james cameron
There is no room in the universe for the least Contempt or pride; but only for a gentle and a reverent heart.james martineau
To punish me for my Contempt of authority, Fate has made me an authority myself.Albert Einstein
These temple-destroyers, devotees of ravaging commercialism, seem to have a perfect Contempt for Nature, and instead of lifting their eyes to the God of the mountains, lift them to the Almighty Dollar. Dam Hetch Hetchy! As well dam for water-tanks the people's cathedrals and churches, for no holier temple has ever been consecrated by the heart of man.john muir
Although the Macedonians, whose territory occupied the area around present-day Thessaloniki in northern Greece, considered themselves part of the Greek cultural sphere, many Greeks regarded them with Contempt. In the eyes of the Greeks, the Macedonians were a mere offshoot of the original stock. They spoke a Greek dialect, to be sure, but they were led by a backward monarchy and their nobles.
This was the country the Mormons settled, the country which, as Brigham Young with some reason hoped, no one else wanted. Its destiny was plain on its face, its Contempt of man and his history and his theological immortality, his Millennium, his Heaven on Earth, was monumentally obvious. Its distances were terrifying, its cloudbursts catastrophic, its beauty flamboyant and bizarre and allied with death.
There is no room in the universe for the least Contempt or pride; but only for a gentle and a reverent heart.
Contempt for an assailant is best shown by bravery in action.
God has given to man no sharper spur to victory than Contempt of death.hannibal
Though familiarity may not breed Contempt, it takes off the edge of admiration.william hazlitt
The infidelity of the Gentile world, and that more especially of men of rank and learning in it, is resolved into a principle which, in my judgment, will account for the inefficacy of any argument, or any evidence whatever, viz. Contempt prior to examination.william paley
His taste was formed in no exclusive schools, and he could admire whatever was good, no matter the rules or the Contempt of rules by which it was produced. He was as free from envy and jealousy as a man can be; and few writers younger than himself will fail to remember the generous encouragement and seasonable notice which his connection with the press enabled his kindly temper to bestow.samuel laman blanchard
In the first manifesto that we launched on the 8th of March, 1910, from the stage of the Chiarella Theater in Turin,1 we expressed our deep-rooted disgust with, our proud Contempt for, and our happy rebellion against vulgarity, mediocrity, the fanatical and snobbish worship of all that is old, attitudes which are suffocating Art in our Country.Umberto Boccioni
But it is recognized that punishment for the abuse of the liberty accorded to the press is essential to the protection of the public, and that the common law rules that subject the libeler to responsibility for the public offense, as well as for the private injury, are not abolished by the protection extended in our constitutions. The law of criminal libel rests upon that secure foundation. There is also the conceded authority of courts to punish for Contempt when publications directly tend to prevent the proper discharge of judicial functions.charles evans hughes
To make laws that man cannot, and will not obey, serves to bring all law into Contempt.elizabeth cady stanton
The time for the kingdom may be far off, but the task is plain: to retain our share in God in spite of peril and Contempt. There is a war to wage against the vulgar, the glorification of the absurd, a war that is incessant, universal. Loyal to the presence of the ultimate in the common, we may be able to make it clear that man is more than man, that in doing the finite he may perceive the infinite .
O, what a deal of scorn looks beautiful In the Contempt and anger of his lip!william shakespeare
It seems to me that this jurisdiction of committing for Contempt being practically arbitrary and unlimited, should be most jealously and carefully watched, and exercised, if I may say so, with the greatest reluctance and the greatest anxiety on the part of Judges to see whether there is no other mode which is not open to the objection of arbitrariness, and which can be brought to bear upon the subject.
The infidelity of the Gentile world, and that more especially of men of rank and learning in it, is resolved into a principle which, in my judgment, will account for the inefficacy of any argument, or any evidence whatever, viz . Contempt prior to investigation.
