The core of ethics runs deep in our species and is common to human beings everywhere. It survives the most appalling hardships and the most ruthless attempts to deprive human beings of their humanity. Nevertheless, some people resist the idea that his core has a biological basis which we have inherited from our pre-human ancestors.
Butter not only wouldn’t melt in this mouth, it wouldn’t go in; one runs away, an urchin in the gutter and glad to be, murmuring: “The Queen of Spain has no legs.” ...One’s eyes widen; one sits the poet down in the porch swing, starts to go off to get her a glass of lemonade, and sees her metamorphosed before one’s eyes into a new Critique of Practical Reason... feminine gender...Randall Jarrell
In plucking the fruit of memory one runs the risk of spoiling its bloom.Constantinus
On either side the river lie Long fields of barley and of rye, That clothe the wold and meet the sky; And through the field the road runs by To many-towered Camelot.Tennyson
A broker is a man who takes your fortune and runs it into a shoestring.
You have been told that God is a loving, gracious, merciful, kind, compassionate, wonderful, and good sky fairy who runs a day care in the sky and has a bucket of suckers for everyone because we're all good people. That is a lie... God looks down and says, "I hate you, you are my enemy, and I will crush you," and we say that is deserved, right and just, and then God says, "Because of Jesus I will love you and forgive you." This is a miracle.mark driscoll
He changes his opinions as he does his friends, and much on the same account. He has no comfort in fixed principles; as soon as anything is settled in his own mind, he quarrels with it. He has no satisfaction but the chase after truth, runs a question down, worries and kills it, then quits it like a vermin, and starts some new game, to lead him a new dance, and give him a fresh breathing through bog and brake, with the rabble yelping at his heels and the leaders perpetually at fault.william hazlitt
Terms like " liberty" and "individual freedom" invoked by generations of Americans who battled to widen the 1787 promise to "promote the general welfare" have been perverted to create a government primarily dedicated to the state and the political class that runs it. Yes, Virginia, there is a class war and ordinary people are losing it.bill moyers
His talk was like a stream which runs With rapid change from rock to roses; It slipped from politics to puns; It passed from Mahomet to Moses; Beginning with the laws that keep The planets in their radiant courses, And ending with some precept deep For dressing eels or shoeing horses.winthrop mackworth praed
The name of Jehovah is a strong tower. Into it the righteous runs and is given protection.
But for 30 years, Orthodox leaders have tipped the balance between hawks and doves, and have been in a position to determine who forms a coalition and who runs the country.
The oracles are dumb, No voice or hideous hum runs through the arched roof in words deceiving. Apollo from his shrine Can no more divine, With hollow shriek the steep of Delphos leaving. No nightly trance or breathed spell Inspires the pale-eyed priest from the prophetic cell.john milton
Observe how system into system runs, What other planets circle other suns.Alexander Pope
I haf von funny leedle poyVot comes schust to mine knee;Der queerest schap, der createst rogue,As ever you dit see.He runs und schumps and schmashes dingsIn all barts off der house:But vot off dot? He vas mine son,Mine leedle Yawcob Strauss.charles follen adams
Shine by the side of every path we treadWith such a luster, he that runs may read.william cowper
For he who fights and runs awayMay live to fight another day;But he who is in battle slainCan never rise and fight again.Oliver Goldsmith
The punters know that the horse named Morality rarely gets past the post, whereas the nag named Self-interest always runs a good race.gough whitlam
I consider an human soul without education like marble in the quarry, which shews none of its inherent beauties till the skill of the polisher fetches out the colours, makes the surface shine, and discovers every ornamental cloud, spot and vein that runs through the body of it.joseph addison
If physics is too difficult for the physicists, the nonphysicist may wonder whether he should try at all to grasp its complexities and ambiguities. It is undeniably an effort, but probably one worth making, for the basic questions are important and the new experimental results are often fascinating. And if the layman runs into serious perplexities, he can be consoled with the thought that the points which baffle him are more than likely the ones for which the professionals have not found satisfactory answers.edward condon
It may be possible to get this condition from within Perl if a signal handler runs at just the wrong moment. Another point for Chip...larry wall
Stretched in front of a bay of Sicily lies an islet over against wavebeat Plemyrium; they of old called it Ortygia. Hither Alpheus the river of Elis, so rumour runs, hath cloven a secret passage beneath the sea, and now through thy well-head, Arethusa, mingles with the Sicilian waves.
Like Hezekiah's, backward runs The shadow of my days.Alfred Tennyson
The man who runs may fight again.
He that fights and runs away, May turn and fight another day; But he that is in battle slain, Will never rise to fight again.
Come what come may, Time and the hour runs through the roughest day.
