Throughout the ages, a thousand roads lead to Rome.Alan of Lille also known as 'Alanus de Insulis'
Perhaps it is God's will to lead the people of South Africa through defeat and humiliation to a better future and a brighter day.Jan Christian Smuts
Opinions derived from long experience are exceedingly valuable, and outweigh all others, while they are consistent with facts and with each other; but they are worse than useless when they lead, as in this instance, to directly opposite opinions.
Education makes a people easy to lead, but difficult to drive; easy to govern but impossible to enslave.brougham, henry, 1st baron brougham and vaux
If you are receptive and humble, mathematics will lead you by the hand. Again and again, when I have been at a loss how to proceed, I have just had to wait until I have felt the mathematics led me by the hand. It has led me along an unexpected path, a path where new vistas open up, a path leading to new territory, where one can set up a base of operations, from which one can survey the surroundings and plan future progress.paul dirac
"We know who the chicken hawks are. They talk tough on national defense and military issues and cast aspersions on others," he said. "When it was their turn to serve where were they? AWOL, that's where they were...the lead chickenhawk against Sen. Kerry [is] the vice president of the United States, Vice President Cheney.frank lautenberg
We herd sheep, we drive cattle, we lead people. lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.george s. patton
It will lead to nothing, I fear, sirmartin joseph routh
The gray-green stretch of sandy grass,Indefinitely desolate;A sea of lead, a sky of slate;Already autumn in the air, alas!One stark monotony of stone,The long hotel, acutely white,Against the after-sunset lightWithers gray-green, and takes the grass's tone.arthur symons
A perception, sudden as blinking, that subject and object are one, will lead to a deeply mysterious understanding; and by this understanding you will awaken to the truth.huangbo xiyun
The beautiful Monique insists on joining their expedition and cannot be dissuaded; we think at first she has a nefarious motive, but no, she's probably taken a class in screenplay construction and knows that the film requires a sexy female lead. This could be the first case in cinematic history of a character voluntarily entering a movie because of the objective fact that she is required.roger ebert
"The oppressor, who is himself dehumanized because he dehumanizes others, is unable to lead this struggle." "This book will present some aspects of what the writer has termed the pedagogy of the oppressed, a pedagogy which must be forged with , not for , the oppressed (whether individuals or peoples) in the incessant struggle to regain their humanity."paulo freire
Again, I maintain that no organization can lead man to spirituality.jiddu krishnamurti
Progressive policies lead to a regressive society.ilana mercer
Tormented by conflicting feelings, I appealed to reason ; and it is reason which, amid so many dogmatic contradictions, now forces the hypothesis upon me. A priori dogmatism, applying itself to God, has proved fruitless: who knows whither the hypothesis, in its turn, will lead us? I will explain therefore how, studying in the silence of my heart, and far from every human consideration, the mystery of social revolutions, God, the great unknown, has become for me an hypothesis, I mean a necessary dialectical tool.Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
Only a moral education based on free inner discipline can bring to bear a salutary action and lead to a true morality.african spir
It is easy for most of us to keep our hands from picking and stealing when picking and stealing plainly lead to prison diet and prison garments. But when silks and satins come of it, and with the silks and satins general respect, the net result of honesty does not seem to be so secure.Anthony Trollope
If circumstances lead me, I will find Where truth is hid, though it were hid indeed Within the centre.william shakespeare
He ne'er is crowned with immortality Who fears to follow where airy voices lead.john keats
The underlying physical laws necessary for the mathematical theory of a large part of physics and the whole of chemistry are thus completely known, and the difficulty is only that the exact application of these laws leads to equations much too complicated to be soluble. It therefore becomes desirable that approximate practical methods of applying quantum mechanics should be developed, which can lead to an explanation of the main features of complex atomic systems without too much computation.
The United States should lead the world when it comes to transparency , accountability , and respect of civil liberties and human rights. We filed the [law]suit today because we are not authorised at present to break out the number of requests, if any, that we receive for user data under specific national security statutes. We believe that the US government's important responsibility to protect public safety can be carried out without precluding internet companies from sharing the number of national security requests they may receive.
Hail to thee, far above the rest In joy of voice and pinion! Thou, linnet! in thy green array, Presiding spirit here to-day, Dost lead the revels of the May; And this is thy dominion.william wordsworth
Jainism was patronized by a number of kings and dynasties, which lead to its influence on common man.
...it is trite that contradictions per se do not lead to the rejection of a witness ’s evidence and what the trier of fact has to take into consideration, are matters such as the nature of the contradictions; their number and importance, and their bearing on other parts of the witness’s evidence. These differences could either be immaterial to the charges the accused is facing or bona fide mistakes made by a witness.
