They want me to immolate myself, and I sincerely believe that for some of them, when they see bad news from Iraq, the reaction is simply 'This will make Hitchens look bad!' I've been trying to avoid solipsism, but I've come to believe there are such people.
Not that I don't think irreverent humor and someone being filthy is funny, I just do what I do. Any comedian would admit throwing an f-bomb in there would help get a Reaction. ... I'm not on a Puritanical pursuit, but when I would curse in a joke, I believe I'm not done writing it.jim gaffigan
My pen and paper causes a chain Reaction, to get your brain relaxing.eminem
That the more authoritarian organizations survive and prevail goes generally unnoticed because people focus on the objectives of organizations, which are many and varied, rather than on their structures, which tend to be similar. Whenever people see a problem, an opportunity or a threat, their first Reaction – even before saying, "Pass a law" – is, "Let's start an organization." But the more an organization succeeds and prospers, the more it is likely to be diverted from its original ideals, principles and purposes.robert shea
I can't get no satisfaction I can't get no girl Reaction.Jagger, Mick and Richards, Keith
Vengeance is a personal Reaction. But not one that government can indulge in.Janet Reno
"And what is the Reaction of the British politcal class? Well the Lib Dems, still think that the Euro is a success! I don't quiet think where Cleggy gets this from, I don't know. Prehaps he is cosidering an alternative career, as a stand up comedian, once he's out of politics."nigel farage
We'd seen all the rushes, which we thought very funny, but the premiere audience Reaction was cold and so were the reviews. However, the moment it was released it made audiences everywhere laugh like anything, and it showed that our original Reaction had been right. What a relief!fenella fielding
Look at the movie 'Wag the Dog, I think this has all the elements of that movie. Our Reaction to the embassy bombings should be based on sound, credible evidence, not a knee-jerk Reaction to try to direct public attention away from his personal problems.jim gibbons
It was great mixing dance beats with the choir. The Reaction of the classically trained choir when asked to sing on top of dance beats was great.jesper kyd
I read in the proof-sheets of Hardy on Ramanujan: 'As someone said, each of the positive integers was one of his personal friends.' My Reaction was, 'I wonder who said that; I wish I had.' In the next proof-sheets I read (what now stands): 'It was Littlewood who said...' (What had happened was that Hardy had received the remark in silence and with a poker face, and I wrote it off as a dud....)john edensor littlewood
The Soviet Army, Air Force and Navy are strong enough to thwart any attempts of imperalist Reaction to disrupt the peaceful labor of our people or the unity and solidarity of the socialist camp.rodion malinovsky
I think it's great that it's caused a Reaction. But at the same time I think the people who are criticising us haven't really watched the show. We are not claiming to be marriage guidance people, or anything.trinny woodall
If we seek the liberation of the people by means of a lie, we will surely grow confused, go astray, and lose sight of our objective, and if we have any influence at all on the people we will lead them astray as well — in other words, we will be acting in the spirit of Reaction and to its benefit.
A rational Reaction against irrational excesses and vagaries of skepticism may * * * readily degenerate into the rival folly of credulity.william ewart gladstone
Doubting the great Descartes ... was a Reaction I learned from my father: Have no respect whatsoever for authority ; forget who said it and instead look what he starts with, where he ends up, and ask yourself, "Is it reasonable?"richard feynman
One might ask what the Reaction would be if a prominent journalist urged South Africans to "give Sambo a seat in the bus," or proposed that Jews be granted something to lose, because "if you give Hymie a seat in the bus, he may limit his demands." Promotion to chief diplomatic correspondent, perhaps?thomas l. friedman
A rational Reaction against the irrational excesses and vagaries of scepticism may, I admit, readily degenerate into the rival folly of credulity. To be engaged in opposing wrong affords, under the conditions of our mental constitution, but a slender guarantee for being right .william ewart gladstone
I think perhaps it would be useful if I repeat again to you the words which I used in the first speech when I became leader of our party [in 1911]..."No government of which I am a member will ever be a government of Reaction..." That was my view then:...it is my view today, and if I thought the Unionist party was, or would ever become, a party of that kind, I would not be a member of it.andrew bonar law
Do not deny the classical approach, simply as a Reaction, or you will have created another pattern and trapped yourself there.bruce lee
One does not paint for design students or historians but for human beings, and the Reaction in human terms is the only thing that is really satisfactory to the artist. (in conversation with W.C. Seitz, fh)mark rothko
What would happen if capital succeeded in smashing the Republic of Soviets? There would set in an era of the blackest Reaction in all the capitalist and colonial countries, the working class and the oppressed peoples would be seized by the throat, the positions of international communism would be lost.joseph stalin
In a man like Friedrich von Schlegel the courage to be as an individual self produced complete neglect of participation, but it also produced, in Reaction to the emptiness of this self-affirmation, the desire to return to a collective. Schlegel, and with him many extreme individualists in the last hundred years, became Roman Catholics. The courage to be as oneself broke down, and one turned to an institutional embodiment of the courage to be as a part.paul tillich
The equilibrium between supply and demand is achieved only through a Reaction against the upsetting of the equilibrium.
By problemitizing and forbidding hijab , a favorite fetish of Muslim fundamentalists and the Western press alike, the French government has forced a Reaction from those forces that includes sworn proclamations that the head scarf is a mandatory religious duty for women, and that banning the scarf is tantamount to interfering with the fundamental practice of Islam itself.
