Whereas civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.
Empires are synonymous with centralized if Occasionally schismatized hierarchical power structures in which influence is restricted to an economically privileged class retaining its advantages through usually a judicious use of oppression and skilled manipulation of both the society’s information dissemination systems and its lesser as a rule nominally independent power systems. In short, it’s all about dominance.iain banks
He was almost a force of nature, like a slumbering volcano, wreathed in clouds, Occasionally emitting smoke which soothsayers attempted to interpret.Theodore H(arold) White
I have Occasionally had the exquisite thrill of putting my finger on a little capsule of truth, and heard it give the faint squeak of mortality under my pressure.
"What are your fees?" inquired Guyal cautiously. "I respond to three questions," stated the augur. "For twenty terces I phrase the answer in clear and actionable language; for ten I use the language of cant, which Occasionally admits of ambiguity; for five, I speak a parable which you must interpret as you will; and for one terce, I babble in an unknown tongue."jack vance
Occasionally an unsuspecting innocent will stumble into a movie like this and send me an anguished postcard, asking how I could possibly give a favorable review to such trash. My stock response is Ebert's Law, which reads: A movie is not about what it is about. It is about how it is about it.roger ebert
We have dancing ... from soon after sundown until a few minutes after nine o’clock.... Occasionally the boys who play the female partners in the dances exercise their ingenuity in dressing to look as girlish as possible. In the absence of lady duds they use leaves, and the leaf-clad beauties often look very pretty and always odd enough.rutherford b. hayes
Bad language or abuse I never, never use, Whatever the emergency; Though "Bother it" I may Occasionally say, I never never use a big, big D.
It is not a bad thing that children should Occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.colette
Murder, like talent, seems Occasionally to run in families.george henry lewes
Probably none of the Weagles gave five minutes' thought a year to theology or ecclesiology, except Ora, who Occasionally stirred up a lot of interesting family irritation by announcing that he was going to become a Catholic, an Episcopalian, a Buddhist, or a Seventh Day Adventist.sinclair lewis
Very Occasionally, if you really pay attention, life doesn’t suck.joss whedon
Criticism will need an injection of humility that is, a recognition of its role as ancillary to the arts, needed only Occasionally in a temporary capacity. Since the critic exists only for introducing and explaining, he must be readily intelligible; he has no special vocabulary: criticism is in no way a science or a system.jacques barzun
I don't like the definition 'war correspondent'. It is history, not journalism, that has condemned the Middle East to war. I think 'war correspondent' smells a bit, reeks of false romanticism: it has too much of the whiff of Victorian reporters who would view battles from hilltops in the company of ladies, immune to suffering, only Occasionally glancing towards the distant pop-pop of cannon fire.robert fisk
Labor disgraces no man; unfortunately you Occasionally find men disgrace labor.ulysses s. grant
The foundation upon which our nation stands is much richer and firmer than the sympathies that may Occasionally divide us. And we never know this more truly than in Christmas time. In good times or in bad, under clear skies or under the shadow of uncertainty, the Christmas message is the imperishable one of joy, hope and brotherhood.Ferdinand Edralin Marcos
Besides, it's good to force C programmers to use the toolbox Occasionally.larry wall
There’s no point living if you can’t, at least Occasionally, live.robert charles wilson
[The notion of equilibrium] is a notion which can be employed usefully in varying degrees of looseness. It is an absolutely indispensable part of the toolbag of the economist and one which he can often contribute usefully to other sciences which are Occasionally apt to get lost in the trackless exfoliations of purely dynamic systems.
Patents are the best and most effective means of controlling competition. They Occasionally give absolute command of the market, enabling their owner to name the price without regard to the cost of production... Patents are the only legal form of absolute monopoly.
The Anarcho-Capitalists, who had more of a historical sense, did Occasionally cite past anarchists like Spooner and Tucker as "the forefathers of modern libertarianism," but only a few individuals like Murray Rothbard, in Power and Market , and some article writers were influenced by these men. Most had not evolved consciously from this tradition; they had been a rather automatic product of the American environment.
A few little flowers will spring up briefly in the dry gulley through which torrents of water pass Occasionally. But it is steady streams that bring thick and needed crops. In the agriculture of the soul that has to do with nurturing attributes, flash floods are no substitute for regular irrigation."
Perhaps, moreover, he whose genius appears deepest and truest excels his fellows in nothing save the knack of expression ; he throws out Occasionally a lucky hint at truths of which every human soul is profoundly though unutterably conscious.Nathaniel Hawthorne
