To take those fools in clerical garb seriously is to show them too much honor.Albert Einstein

show me the man who has enjoyed his schooldays and I will show you a bully and a bore.Robert Morley
'When you say ''hill'', 'the Queen interrupted, 'I could show you hills, in comparison with which you'd call that a valley.' 'No, I shouldn't,' said Alice, surprised into contradicting her at last: 'a hill can't be a valley, you know. That would be nonsense.' The Red Queen shook her head.'You may call it ''nonsense'' if you like,' she said,'but I've heard nonsense, compared with which that would be as sensible as a dictionary!'Lewis Carroll
Ptolemy... against the champions of this or that cosmology of the heavens... had dared to claim that it is legitimate to interpret the facts of astronomy by the simplest geometrical scheme which will 'save the phenomena,' no matter whose metaphysics might be upset. His conception of the physical structure of the earth, however, prevented him from carrying through in earnest this principle of relativity, as his objections to the hypothesis that the earth moves amply show.ptolemy
My attitude toward punctuation is that it ought to be as conventional as possible. The game of golf would lose a good deal if croquet mallets and billiard cues were allowed on the putting green. You ought to be able to show that you can do it a good deal better than anyone else with the regular tools before you have a license to bring in your own improvements.ernest hemingway
I read, I study, I examine, I listen, I reflect, and out of all of this I try to form an idea into which I put as much common sense as I can. I shall not speak much for fear of saying foolish things; I will risk still less for fear of doing them, for I am not disposed to abuse the confidence which they have deigned to show me. Such is the conduct which until now I have followed and will follow.lafayette, gilbert du motier, marquis de
Every kid around the world who plays soccer wants to be Pelé. I have a great responsibility to show them not just how to be like a soccer player, but how to be like a man.pelé
He could not even stand up to review his fleet when the ships were already at their fighting stations, but lay on his back and gazed up at the sky, never rising to show that he was alive until Marcus Agrippa had routed the enemy.augustus
If the test of truth lay in a show of hands or a counting of heads, the system of magic might appeal, with far more reason than the Catholic Church, to the proud motto, Quod semper, quod ubique, quod ab omnibus [always, everywhere, and by all], as the sure and certain credential of its own infallibility.james frazer
If you show people the problems and you show people the solutions they will be moved to act.bill gates
To live lightheartedly but not recklessly; to be gay without being boisterous; to be courageous without being bold; to show trust and cheerful resignation without fatalism this is the art of living.jean de la fontaine
Shalt show us how divine a thing a woman may be made.william wordsworth
Other forms include the Varnam, a completely composed piece, designed to show a Raga in all its pristine purity. Pada and Javali are two kinds of love-songs depicting poetic imagery characteristic of the Bhakthi movement. The Tillana is rhythmic and is in very fast tempo.
Proof of the usage of a large capital such as London, is sufficient to show that of the whole world unless it is contradicted.

God be thanked, the meanest of his creatures Boasts two soul-sides, one to face the world with, One to show a woman when he loves her!Robert Browning
Today we need a special kind of courage. Not the kind needed in battle, but a kind which makes us stand up for everything that we know is right, everything that is true and honest. We need the kind of courage that can withstand the subtle corruption of the cynics, so that we can show the world that we are not afraid of the future.Queen Elizabeth II
"Paint me as I am," said Cromwell, "Rough with age and gashed with wars; show my visage as you find it, Less than truth my soul abhors."james thomas fields
