My success will not depend on what A or B thinks of me. My success will be what I make of my work.
Your success and happiness Depend on your willingness to help others solve their problems.t. b. joshua
By accident most strange, bountiful Fortune Now my dear lady hath mine enemies Brought to this shore; and by my prescience I find my zenith doth Depend upon A most auspicious star, whose influence If now I court not, but omit, my fortunes Will ever after droop.william shakespeare
Depend upon it, Sir, when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.samuel johnson
To be a gentleman does not Depend upon the tailor or the toilet. Good clothes are not good habits. A gentleman is just a gentle-man, — no more, no less; a diamond polished, that was first a diamond in the rough.william croswell doane
First, then, a woman will or won’t, Depend on ’t;If she will do ’t, she will; and there ’s an end on ’t.But if she won’t, since safe and sound your trust is,Fear is affront, and jealousy injustice.aaron hill
Better to hunt in fields, for health unbought, Than fee the doctor for a nauseous draught. The wise, for cure, on exercise Depend; God never made his work for man to mend.john dryden
Depend upon it, my younger brethren, the bright, self-sacrificing enthusiasms of early manhood are among the most precious things in the whole course of human life.
The fate of the country does not Depend on how you vote at the polls — the worst man is as strong as the best at that game; it does not Depend on what kind of paper you drop into the ballot-box once a year, but on what kind of man you drop from your chamber into the street every morning.Henry David Thoreau
Woman must not Depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself.susan b. anthony
It is not without fear and trembling that a historian of religion approaches the problem of myth . This is not only because of that preliminary embarrassing question: what is intended by myth? It is also because the answers given Depend for the most part on the documents selected.mircea eliade
Happiness and Prosperity are now within our Reach; but to attain and preserve them must Depend upon our own Wisdom and Virtue.george mason
Education is a weapon whose effects Depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.joseph stalin
Purity of character and salvation Depend on purity of heart . We should, by living the life according to our lights share the best with one another, thus adding to the sum total of human effort to reach God .
Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being’s entitlement by virtue of his humanity. The right to life does not Depend, and must not be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or sovereign... you must weep that your own government, at present, seems blind to this truth.
Mothers were the only ones you could Depend on to tell the whole, unvarnished truth.Margaret Dilloway
Our peasant music, naturally, is invariably tonal, if not always in the sense that the inflexible major and minor system is tonal. (An "atonal" folk-music, in my opinion, is unthinkable.) Since we Depend upon a tonal basis of this kind in our creative work, it is quite self-evident that our works are quite pronouncedly tonal in type. I must admit, however, that there was a time when I thought I was approaching a species of twelve-tone music. Yet even in works of that period the absolute tonal foundation is unmistakable.béla bartók
The reputation of generosity is to be purchased pretty cheap; it does not Depend so much upon a man’s general expense, as it does upon his giving handsomely where it is proper to give at all. A man, for instance, who should give a servant four shillings, would pass for covetous, while he who gave him a crown, would be reckoned generous; so that the difference of those two opposite characters, turns upon one shilling.stanhope, philip, 4th earl of chesterfield
I must make MAGICK the essential factor in the life of ALL. In presenting this book to the world, I must then explain and justify my position by formulating a definition of MAGICK and setting forth its main principles in such a way that ALL may understand instantly that their souls, their lives, in every relation with every other human being and every circumstance, Depend upon MAGICK and the right comprehension and right application thereof.aleister crowley
I shall not find a painting more beautiful because the artist has painted a hawthorn in the foreground, though I know of nothing more beautiful than the hawthorn, for I wish to remain sincere and because I know that the beauty of a painting does not Depend on the things represented in it. I shall not collect images of hawthorn. I do not venerate hawthorn, I go to see and smell it.Marcel Proust
It was just as the 1914 War burst on me that I made the discovery that 'legends' Depend on the language to which they belong; but a living language depends equally on the 'legends' which it conveys by tradition. ... Volapuk, Esperanto, Ido, Novial, &c &c are dead, far deader than ancient unused languages, because their authors never invented any Esperanto legends...j. r. r. tolkien
The beautiful is and remains beautiful though it arouse no emotion whatever, and though there be no one to look at it. In other words, although the beautiful exists for the gratification of an observer, it is independent of him. In this sense music, too, has no aim (object), and the mere fact that this particular art is so closely bound up with our feelings by no means justifies the assumption that its aesthetic principles Depend on this union.
Social protest and even civil disobedience serve the law 's need for growth . Ideally, reform would come according to reason and justice without self-help and disturbing, almost violent, forms of protest. … Still, candor compels one here again to acknowledge the gap between the ideal and the reality . Short of the millennium, sharp changes in the law Depend partly upon the stimulus of protest.
...our notions of what a human being is problematically Depend on there being two coherent genders. And if someone doesn't comply with either the masculine norm or the feminine norm, their very humaness is called into question.
