Your ancestors came to Macedonia and the rest of Hellas [Greece] and did us great harm, though we had done them no prior injury. I have been appointed leader of the Greeks, and wanting to punish the Persians I have come to Asia, which I took from you.
Prior to the advent of brain, there was no color and no sound in the universe, nor was there any flavor or aroma and probably rather little sense and no feeling or emotion. Before brains the universe was also free of pain and anxiety.roger wolcott sperry
...in a volume of dozen lines of Milton, Proper and Prior, with a paper from the Spectator and a chapter from the Sterne are eulogized by a thousand pens-there seems almost a general wish of decrying the capacity and undervaluing the labour of the novelist, and slighting the performance which have only genius, wit and taste to recommend them.

Prior art is as effective as US soldiers in Iraq: They control the ground they stand on, and nothing more. I used to say Vietnam, but, well, you know...richard m. stallman
Whatever we saw in October 1941, cannot be compared to anything that we had seen Prior, when our forces retreated from the Dniepr borders. Now, things like this no longer happen. Now, we can frown by ourselves.hovhannes bagramyan
"Appropriate patterns of reproductive, gender, and sexual conduct are all products of specific cultures and all can be viewed as examples of socially scripted conduct. Western societies now have a system of gender and sexual learning in which gender differential scripts are learned Prior to sexual scripts, but take their origins in part from the previously learned gender scripts... There are two important points: The first is that both gender and sexuality are learned forms of social practice, and the second is that looking to "natural differences" between women and men for lessons about sexual conduct is an error."
The infidelity of the Gentile world, and that more especially of men of rank and learning in it, is resolved into a principle which, in my judgment, will account for the inefficacy of any argument, or any evidence whatever, viz. contempt Prior to examination.william paley
It is within science itself, and not in some Prior philosophy, that reality is to be identified and described.willard van orman quine
How are we to adjudicate among rival ontologies? Certainly the answer is not provided by the semantical formula "To be is to be the value of a variable"; this formula serves rather, conversely, in testing the conformity of a given remark or doctrine to a Prior ontological standard.willard van orman quine
You have to get a little untrapped from too much Prior knowledge.
All of you, I am sure, have heard many cries about Government interference with business and about "creeping socialism." I should like to remind the gentlemen who make these complaints that if events had been allowed to continue as they were going Prior to March 4, 1933, most of them would have no businesses left for the Government or for anyone else to interfere with — and almost surely we would have socialism in this country, real socialism.harry s. truman
“Often it seems the more ‘ scholarship ’ one has, the less innovative one becomes. One can increasingly rest upon their knowledge of Prior art to solve what looks like a new problem.”stephen bush
Raising children was not designed for single parents. (Which is why divorce was such a taboo Prior to birth control).warren farrell
The words of the Constitution ... are so unrestricted by their intrinsic meaning or by their history or by tradition or by Prior decisions that they leave the individual Justice free, if indeed they do not compel him, to gather meaning not from reading the Constitution but from reading life.felix frankfurter
Your recent meetings with Chinese dissidents at the White House are to be commended. However, your participation at the opening ceremony of the Olympics will send a signal to the Chinese people and the international community that could be misperceived as your approval, and that of the American people, for the draconian policies of the Chinese government. Therefore, it is essential that you unambiguously speak out for human rights and meet with the families of jailed prisoners of conscience while you are in Beijing. (In a letter to President Bush Prior to his 2008 trip to Beijing's Summer Olympic Gamesnancy pelosi
When we affirm that philosophy begins with wonder , we are affirming in effect that sentiment is Prior to reason .richard weaver
Sacrificing anonymity may be the next generation's price for keeping precious liberty, as Prior generations paid in blood.Harl Noby
If you know the history of the whole concept of whiteness if you know the history of the whole concept of the white race, where it came from and for what reason you know that it was a trick, and it’s worked brilliantly. You see, Prior to the mid to late 1600s, in the colonies of what would become the United States, there was no such thing as the white race. Those of us of European descent did not refer to ourselves by that term really ever before then.
Mechanical engineering is now the largest branch, with nearly 40 percent of the profession's members. Civil engineering, which was the largest branch Prior to World War II, has dropped to second place, with about 25 percent of all engineers.

Under the contract, the natural mother is irrevocably committed before she knows the strength of her bond with her child. She never makes a totally voluntary, informed decision, for quite clearly any decision Prior to the baby's birth is, in the most important sense, uninformed, and any decision after that, compelled by a pre-existing contractual commitment....
Under established First Amendment law, Prior restraints, if constitutional at all, are permissible only in the most extraordinary circumstances. In this case, you have court orders that effectively shut down a Web site that has been at the forefront of exposing corruption in governments and corporations around the world and enjoin anyone who reads the order from publishing or even linking to the documents.
King Cotton, phrase frequently used by Southern politicians and authors Prior to the American Civil War, indicating the economic and political importance of cotton production. After the invention of the cotton gin (1793), cotton surpassed tobacco as the dominant cash crop in the agricultural economy of the South, soon comprising more than half the total U.S. exports.
The infidelity of the Gentile world, and that more especially of men of rank and learning in it, is resolved into a principle which, in my judgment, will account for the inefficacy of any argument, or any evidence whatever, viz . contempt Prior to investigation.
A similar statement apparently derived from this has become widely attributed to Herbert Spencer, but there are no records of him ever saying or writing it, the first attribution to him occurring in 1931: There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance that principle is contempt Prior to investigation.Alexander Pope
In Texas , the “Execution Protocol” clearly outlines a last meal choice to the condemned individual, things accessible by the regular prison kitchen staff... as a scheduled step in the execution process: At least seven days Prior to the execution, the warden or designee will contact the condemned individual to arrange for his/her last meal, and The condemned individual will be served a final meal at a time determined by the warden.
