I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life's greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of Resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.anthony robbins
After the second Die Hard , Bruce Willis stated he would never do another. He should have stayed firm in his Resolve. If quality is any indication (and it may be, with all the available blockbusters), box office returns will be disappointing this time around and, if nothing else, that will do to John McClane what dozens of assorted bad guys couldn't manage: kill him.james berardinelli

An intelligent person should never Resolve a dispute with brute force.gersh budker
In this case, the United States had particular reason to consult most closely with those Caribbean countries which had called on it to help Resolve the crisis. Nevertheless, their lack of consultation was regrettably less than we would have wished.geoffrey howe

I think in general it's clear that most bad things come from misunderstanding, and communication is generally the way to Resolve misunderstandings, and the Web's a form of communications, so it generally should be good.tim berners-lee
Geoffrey also recognized that the opposite orientations of gut and nervous system posed a problem for his claim that insects and vertebrates represent different versions of the same archetypal animal - and he proposed the first account of the inversion theory to Resolve this threat to unification. ...Geoffroy pursued the... aim of establishing a "unity of type" that could generate both arthropods and vertebrates from the same basic blueprint. ...The single grand design includes a gut in the middle and the main nerve cords somewhere on the periphery.stephen jay gould
Marx set out to Resolve the contradictions and to correct the errors in classical political economy. In this he thought he had succeeded very well. Judging by the sound and the fury of the controversy surrounding his interpretations, he either succeeded too well or deluded himself to the success of his enterprise.david harvey
Every social need, such as the need for friendship, must be a party to its own satisfaction: I cannot passively find my friend as a ready-made friend; a ready-made human being he may be, but his friendship for me I must help to create by my own active Resolve.william ernest hocking
The Treasury plan is a disgrace: a bailout of reckless bankers, lenders and investors that provides little direct debt relief to borrowers and financially stressed households and that will come at a very high cost to the US taxpayer. And the plan does nothing to Resolve the severe stress in money markets and interbank markets that are now close to a systemic meltdown.nouriel roubini

Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America . These acts shattered steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American Resolve.
No, mes amis, impressionism is not charlatanry , nor a formula , nor a school . I should say rather it is the bold Resolve to throw all those things overboard.
A wise man should never Resolve upon any thing, at least never let the world know his resolution; for if he cannot arrive at that, he is ashamed. How many things did the Resolve in his declaration concerning Scotland, never to do, and yet did them all?
It is impossible to repristinate a past world picture by sheer Resolve, especially a mythical world picture, now that all of our thinking is irrevocably formed by science. A blind acceptance of New Testament mythology would be simply arbitrariness; to make such acceptance a demand of faith would be to reduce faith to a work.rudolf bultmann
wars are often the cause of further wars because they fuel deep hatreds, create situations of injustice and trample upon people's dignity and rights. Wars generally do not Resolve the problems for which they are fought and therefore, in addition to causing horrendous damage, they prove ultimately futile. War is a defeat for humanity. Only in peace and through peace can respect for human dignity and its inalienable rights be guaranteed.
His Resolve is not to seem , but to be, the best.
Guard yourself against accusations, even if they are false; for the multitude are ignorant of the truth and look only to reputation. In all things Resolve to act as though the whole world would see what you do; for even if you conceal your deeds for the moment, later you will be found out. But most of all will you have the respect of men, if you are seen to avoid doing things which you would blame others for doing.
Pray let us so Resolve cases here that they may stand with the reason of mankind, when they are debated abroad. Shall that be reason here that is not reason in any part of the world besides?
