In my opinion it is harmful to place important things in the hands of philanthropy, which in Russia is marked by a chance character. Nor should important matters Depend on leftovers, which are never there. I would prefer that the government treasury take care of it.Anton Chekhov
You can't Depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.mark twain
People think that they have no right to judge a fact all they have to do is to accept it. Thus from the moment that technics, the State, or production, are facts, we must worship them as facts, and we must try to adapt ourselves to them. This is the very heart of modern religion, the religion of the established fact, the religion on which Depend the lesser religions of the dollar, race, or the proletariat , which are only expressions of the great modern divinity , the Moloch of fact.jacques ellul
"Foote," (said lord Sandwich) "I have often wondered what catastrophe would bring you to your end; but I think, that you must either die of the p-x, or the halter." "My lord," (replied Foote instantaneously) "that will Depend upon one of two contingencies; whether I embrace your lordship's mistress, or your lordship's principles."Samuel Foote
But the validity of a doctrine does not Depend on whose ox it gores.robert h. jackson
Scientific discovery is a private event, and the delight that accompanies it, or the despair of finding it illusory, does not travel. One scientist may get great satisfaction from another’s work and admire it deeply; it may give him great intellectual pleasure; but it gives him no sense of participation in the discovery, it does not carry him away, and his appreciation of it does not Depend on his being carried away. If it were otherwise the inspirational origin of scientific discovery would never have been in doubt.peter medawar
As the base rhetorician uses language to increase his own power, to produce converts to his own cause, and to create loyal followers of his own person so the noble rhetorician uses language to wean men away from their inclination to Depend on authority, to encourage them to think and speak clearly, and to teach them to be their own masters.thomas szasz

I find on inquiring among successful pastors, successful in the sense of winning men to Christ in profession, that they Depend largely on personal contact.

Books are delightful when prosperity happily smiles; when adversity threatens, they are inseparable comforters. They give strength to human compacts, nor are grave opinions brought forward without books. Arts and sciences, the benefits of which no mind can calculate, Depend upon books.
The effectiveness of the performance will Depend on the effectiveness of the play and the effectiveness with which it is played. The effectiveness of the administrative process will vary with the effectiveness of the organization and the effectiveness with which its members play their parts.
Heav'n forming each on other to Depend, A master, or a servant, or a friend, Bids each on other for assistance call, Till one man's weakness grows the strength of all.Alexander Pope

Anarchism is voluntary cooperation for good , with the right of secession. A Christian anarchist is therefore one who turns the other cheek, overturns the tables of the moneychangers, and does not need a cop to tell him how to behave. A Christian anarchist does not Depend upon bullets or ballots to achieve his ideal; he achieves that ideal daily by the One-Man Revolution with which he faces a decadent, confused, and dying world .
