I quickly learned that reading is cumulative and proceeds by geometric progression: each new reading builds upon whatever the reader has read before.
Generosity during life is a very different thing from generosity in the hour of death; one Proceeds from genuine liberality and benevolence, the other from pride or fear.horace mann
Courage that grows from constitution very often forsakes a man when he has occasion for it, and when it is only a kind of instinct in the Soul breaks out on all occasions without judgment or discretion. That courage which Proceeds from the sense of our duty, and from the fear of offending Him that made us, acts always in a uniform manner, and according to the dictates of right reason.joseph addison
I say, of the Congress, then, this that its aims are mistaken, that the spirit in which it Proceeds towards their accomplishment is not a spirit of sincerity and whole-heartedness, and that the methods it has chosen are not the right methods, and the leaders in whom it trusts, not the right sort of men to be leaders; in brief, that we are at present the blind led, if not by the blind, at any rate by the one-eyed.sri aurobindo
Inflation itself Proceeds at a speed faster than the measured speed of light.john moffat
The progress of knowledge is very irregular, somewhat resembling the movements of an army, of which some battalions are in vigorous health, while others are sickly or overburdened with baggage. The experimental marches on at a good pace; the observational Proceeds but slowly; the speculative is left far in the rear.
Most people sell their souls, and live with a good conscience on the Proceeds.Logan Pearsall Smith
It was said by Fisher Ames that “falsehood Proceeds from Maine to Georgia, while truth is pulling on his boots”.fisher ames
To accept the principal that "all power Proceeds from the barrel of a gun" is to accept a society which will be dominated by those with the biggest guns.tommy douglas
The study of theology as it stands in Christian churches, is the study of nothing; it is founded on nothing; it rests on no principles; it Proceeds by no authorities; it has no data; it can demonstrate nothing; and admits of no conclusion. Not any thing can be studied as a science without our being in possession of the principles upon which it is founded; and as this is not the case with Christian theology, it is therefore the study of nothing.thomas paine
The gospel Proceeds on the basis of universal depravity; the gospel assimilates all varieties of human nature into one common experience of guilt and need and helplessness; and this is just what you do not like about it.william morley punshon
It was Rudolf Carnap’s dream for the last three decades of his life to show that science Proceeds by a formal syntactic method; today no one to my knowledge holds out any hope for that project.hilary putnam
The moment a mere numerical superiority by either states or voters in this country Proceeds to ignore the needs and desires of the minority, and for their own selfish purpose or advancement, hamper or oppress that minority, or debar them in any way from equal privileges and equal rights—that moment will mark the failure of our constitutional system.
The highest greatness, surviving time and stone, is that which Proceeds from the soul of man. Monarchs and cabinets, generals and admirals, with the pomp of court and the circumstance of war, in the lapse of time disappear from sight; but the pioneers of truth, though poor and lowly, especially those whose example elevates human nature, and teaches the rights of man, so that "a government of the people, by the people, for the people, may not perish from the earth;" such a harbinger can never be forgotten, and their renown spreads co-extensive with the cause they served so well.
Chomsky Proceeds on the almost unthinkably subversive assumption that the United States should be judged by the same standards that it preaches (often at gunpoint) to other nations he is nearly the only person now writing who assumes a single standard of international morality not for rhetorical effect, but as a matter of habitual, practically instinctual conviction.christopher hitchens
Beauty, the splendour of truth, is a gracious presence when the imagination contemplates intensely the truth of its own being or the visible world, and the spirit which Proceeds out of truth and beauty is the holy spirit of joy. These are realities and these alone give and sustain life.james joyce
All human knowledge begins with intuitions, Proceeds from thence to concepts, and ends with ideas.Immanuel Kant
In the same manner the voice executes its movements in concentric circles; but while in the case of water the circles move horizontally on a plane surface, the voice not only Proceeds horizontally, but also ascends vertically by regular stages. Therefore, as in the case of the waves formed in the water, so it is in the case of the voice: the first wave, when there is no obstruction to interrupt it, does not break up the second or the following waves, but they all reach the ears of the lowest and highest spectators without an echo.vitruvius
Extremes are faulty and proceed from men: compensation is just, and Proceeds from God.
Robert became much interested in science and scientific method; and he showed particular attention to optics, which he regarded as the key to an understanding of the physical world. He was conscious of the dual approach by means of induction and deduction (resolution and composition); i.e., from the empirical knowledge one Proceeds to probable general principles, and from these as premises one them derives conclusions which constitute verifications or falsifications of the principles. This approach to science was not that far removed from Aristotle ...
Every sermon must have a solid rest in Scripture, and the pointedness which comes of a clear subject, and the conviction which belongs to well-thought argument, and the warmth that Proceeds from earnest appeal.
The following are the other extant works generally attributed to Euclid: Phœnomena , a work on spherical geometry and astronomy; Optics , which develops the hypothesis that light Proceeds from the eye, and not from the object seen; Catoptrica , containing propositions on reflections from mirrors; De Divisionibus , a treatise on the division of plane figures into parts having to one another a given ratio; Sectio Canonis , a work on musical intervals.
Nothing Proceeds from nothingness, as also nothing passes away into non-existence.marcus aurelius
And then, the quiet of the green, inland valleys of our Father's land, where no tempest comes any more, nor the loud winds are ever heard, nor the salt sea is ever seen; but perpetual calm and blessedness; all mystery gone, and all rebellion hushed and silenced, and all unrest at an end forever! " No more sea;" but, instead of that wild and yeasty chaos of turbulent waters, there shall be the river that makes glad the city of God, the river of water of life, that Proceeds "out of the throne of God and of the Lamb."
Chastising is an effect of love. It is not only consequential to, but springs from it; wherefore there is nothing properly penal in the chastisement of believers. Punishment Proceeds from love to justice, not from love to the person punished; but chastisement is from love to the person chastised, though mixed with displeasure against sin.
Dada hurts. Dada does not jest, for the reason that it was experienced by revolutionary men and not by philistines who demand that art be a decoration for the mendacity of their own emotions... I am firmly convinced that all art will become dadaistic in the course of time, because from Dada Proceeds the perpetual urge for its renovation.
