A slender acquaintance with the world, must convince every man, that actions, not words, are the true criterion of the attachment of friends; and that the most liberal professions of good-will are far from being the surest marks of it.
I still carry the Marks on my body of what those "German supermen" did to me then. I was sentenced to death.irena sendler
Libertarians believe the answer to America's political problems is the same commitment to freedom that earned America its greatness: a free-market economy and the abundance and prosperity it brings; a dedication to civil liberties and personal freedom that Marks this country above all others; and a foreign policy of non-intervention, peace, and free trade as prescribed by America's founders.

I open with a clock striking, to beget an awful attention in the audience: it also Marks the time, which is four o'clock in the morning, and saves a description of the rising sun, and a great deal about gilding the eastern hemisphere. 788Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Do we want blanks, asterisks and exclamation Marks which people can fill in with their own imaginations, or are we prepared and strong enough to tolerate, even if we do not approve, the strong Anglo-Saxon, realistic and vivid language?john mortimer
The mark of rank in nature is capacity for pain,And the anguish of the singer Marks the sweetness of the strain.
In the theater, while you recognized that you were looking at a house, it was a house in quotation Marks ... on screen, the quotation Marks tend to be blotted out by the camera. The problem was to sustain at any cost the feeling you had in the theater that you were watching a real person, yes, but an intense condensation of his experience, not simply a realistic series of episodes. It isn't easy to do in the theater, but it's twice as hard in film.Arthur Miller
Yiddish, the language which will ever bear witness to the violence and murder inflicted on us, bear the Marks of our expulsions from land to land, the language which absorbed the wails of the fathers, the laments of the generations, the poison and bitterness of history, the language whose precious jewels are the undried, uncongealed Jewish tears.isaac leib peretz
A union of indomitable resolution in the achievement of a given purpose, with patience and moderation in the policy pursued, and with kindly charity and consideration and friendliness to those of opposite belief , Marks the very spirit in which we of to-day should approach the pressing problems of the present .theodore roosevelt
Dust in the air suspended Marks the place where a story ended.
The great man?walks across his centuryand leaves the Marks of his feet all over it, ripping out the dates on his galoshes as he passes.
I consider as lovers of books not those who keep their books hidden in their store-chests and never handle them, but those who, by nightly as well as daily use thumb them, batter them, wear them out, who fill out all the margins with annotations of many kinds, and who prefer the Marks of a fault they have erased to a neat copy full of faults.
Titles are Marks of honest men, and wise. The fool or knave that wears a title lies.Edward Young
In products of the human mind, simplicity Marks the end of a process of refining, while complexity Marks a primitive stage. Michelangelo 's definition of art as the purgation of superfluities suggests that the creative effort consists largely in the elimination of that which complicates and confuses a patternEric Hoffer
Sam is a repetitive, comic process that merely Marks time: he gets nowhere, but then he doesn’t want to get anywhere. Although there is no possibility of any real change in Sam, he never stops changing: Sam stays there inside Sam, getting less and less like the rest of mankind and more and more like Sam, Sam squared, Sam cubed, Sam to the n th.Randall Jarrell
"Every national border in Europe," El Eswad added ironically, "Marks the place where two gangs of bandits got too exhausted to kill each other anymore and signed a treaty. Patriotism is the delusion that one of these gangs of bandits is better than all the others."robert anton wilson
Our use of the phrase 'The Dark Ages' to cover the period from 600 to 1000 Marks our undue concentration on Western Europe. [...] From India to Spain, the brilliant civilisation of Islam flourished. What was lost to Christendom at this time was not lost to civilisation, but quite the contrary. [...] To us it seems that West-European civilisation is civilisation, but this is a narrow view.bertrand russell
I pity bashful men, who feel the pain Of fancied scorn and undeserved disdain, And bear the Marks upon a blushing face, Of needless shame, and self-impos'd disgrace.william cowper
Mr. President, this November Marks 10 years since our Nation imposed the discriminatory law known as "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" on the lesbian, gay, and bisexual patriots of our Nation. During the past decade, almost 10,000 men and women have been fired from our Armed Forces simply because of their sexual orientation.
Feet that make no noise; eyes that can see in the dark; ears that can hear the winds in their lairs, and sharp white teeth, all these things are the Marks of our brothers except Tabaqui the Jackal and the Hyaena whom we hate.
While I see many hoof Marks going in, I see none coming out. It is easier to get into the enemy's toils than out again.
Since the coming of Jesus Christ, Mahometanism has overspread a great part of the barbarous world. But this carries in it such apparent and certain Marks of falsity, that it can be no temptation to any person in whom there is but a spark of good sense...The author from whom it was derived: a robber, one drenched in sensuality, and therefore utterly unqualified to be the revealer of the will of the holy God to men...
