The history of science shows that the progress of science has constantly been hampered by the tyrannical influence of certain conceptions that finally came to be considered as dogma. For this reason, it is proper to submit periodically to a very searching examination, principles that we have come to assume without any more discussion.
What though the field be lost? All is not lost; the unconquerable will, And study of revenge, immortal hate, And courage never to Submit or yield.john milton
All the wars and strifes between tribes, races, nations, from the beginning until now, have been the result of man's effort to govern himself and the world, rather than to Submit to the government of God.david lipscomb
Whoever is fortunate enough to be an American citizen came into the greatest inheritance man has ever enjoyed. He has had the benefit of every heroic and intellectual effort men have made for many thousands of years, realized at last. If Americans should now turn back, Submit again to slavery, it would be a betrayal so base the human race might better perish.isabel paterson
It is the will of God, and we must Submit; but I call my God to witness that I have done all that in me lay to save the city, utterly desperate as I knew the attempt to be. When I took in hand the defence of these oppressed Christians, I made an alliance with the mightiest of all Potentates the God of Hosts, who is able to save us, if He choose.william the silent
Flight, or an escape from arrest for felony, is an acknowledgment of guilt . . . every man, who is accused, is bound to Submit himself to the judgment of the law; and, whether it be a trespass, or whether it be a felony with which he is charged, it may, with truth, be said of him who shrinks from trial facinus fatetur qui judicium fugit.
Copyright is monopoly, and produces all the effects which the general voice of mankind attributes to monopoly [...] It is good that authors should be remunerated; and the least exceptionable way of remunerating them is by a monopoly. Yet monopoly is an evil. For the sake of the good we must Submit to the evil; but the evil ought not to last a day longer than is necessary for the purpose of securing the good.
What though the field be lost? All is not lost; the unconquerable will, And study of revenge, immortal hate And courage never to Submit or yield, And what is else not to be overcome.john milton
Submit to the present evil, lest a greater one befall you.phaedrus
Serve God, and God will take care of you. Submit to His will, trust in His grace, and resign yourself into His hands with the assurance that the Lord is well pleased with those "that hope in His mercy."gardiner spring
Very trifling circumstances do give great and daily annoyance, and as often prove too much for our philosophy and forbearance, as matters of the highest moment. ... The truth is, we pamper little griefs into great ones, and bear great ones as well as we can ... To great evils we Submit; we resent little provocations.william hazlitt
The way to procure insults is to Submit to them. A man meets with no more respect than he exacts.william hazlitt
The conservative response to modernity is to embrace it, but to embrace it critically, in full consciousness that human achievements are rare and precarious, that we have no God-given right to destroy our inheritance, but must always patiently Submit to the voice of order, and set an example of orderly living.roger scruton
I stand here today, as Governor of this sovereign state, and refuse to willingly Submit to illegal usurpation of power by the Central Government.george wallace
I mean this, that together with the so-called increase of expenditure there grows up what may be termed a spirit which, insensibly and unconsciously perhaps, but really, affects the spirit of the people, the spirit of parliament, the spirit of the public departments, and perhaps even the spirit of those whose duty it is to Submit the estimates to parliament.william ewart gladstone
Virtue is not a chemical product, as Taine once described it: it is a historic product, like language and literature; and this means that if we cease to care about it, cease to cultivate it, cease to transmit its funded values, a large part of it will become meaningless, like a dead language to which we have lost the key. That, I Submit, is what has happened in our own lifetime.Lewis Mumford
The oppression is growing, and anyone who has had to Submit to the Tempter's machine-gun fire during this last week thinks differently from what he did even three weeks ago.martin niemöller
What, by a word lacking even in grammar, is called amorality, is a thing that does not exist. If you are unwilling to Submit to any norm, you have, nolens volens , to Submit to the norm of denying all morality, and this is not amoral, but immoral. It is a negative morality which preserves the empty form of the other.josé ortega y gasset
The will to power is the will to ecstasy is the will to surrender is the will to Submit and, in extremis, to die. Or to put it another way, the rage to attain a freedom and happiness one's psyche cannot accept creates enormous anxiety and ends in self-punishing despair.ellen willis
If women be educated for dependence; that is, to act according to the will of another fallible being, and Submit, right or wrong, to power, where are we to stop?mary wollstonecraft
It is the will of God, and we must Submit; but I call my God to witness that I have done all that in me lay to save the city, utterly desperate as I knew the attempt to be. When I took in hand the defence of these oppressed Christians, I made an alliance with the mightiest of all Potentates the God of Hosts, who is able to save us, if He choose.
If they be dead, as I can no longer doubt, we must Submit to the will of God and trust in His divine Providence, that He who has given the blood of His only Son to maintain His Church will do nothing but what will redound to the advancement of His glory and the preservation of His Church however impossible it may appear. And though we all were to die, and all this poor people were massacred and driven out, we still must trust that God will not abandon his own.
You all very well know what deference I always pay, and ever will, to that part of the office of a jury which properly belongs to them. In regard to the law, I have always been as tenacious of the proper function of a Judge, as I have been of that of the jury. I never will, while I have the honour of executing the office of a Judge, attempt to controul or influence their minds in respect of damages; but only Submit to them such observations as occur to me upon the evidence.
We must trust to nothing but facts: these are presented to us by nature and cannot deceive. We ought, in every instance, to Submit our reasoning to the test of experiment, and never to search for truth but by the natural road of experiment and observation.
Say: We believe in God and (in) that which has been revealed to us, and (in) that which was revealed to Abraham , and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes , and (in) that which was given to Moses and Jesus , and (in) that which was given to the prophets from their Lord, we do not make any distinction between any of them and to Him do we Submit.
It is not meet for a mortal that Allah should give him the Book and the judgement and the prophethood, then he should say to men: Be my servants besides Allah's; but (he would say): Be worshippers of the Lord because you teach the Book and because you study (it); Nor would he enjoin you to take the angels and the prophets for lords. Would he enjoin you to disbelieve after you Submit?
...and the best philosophy , to do one's duties, take the world as it comes, Submit respectfully to one's lot, bless the goodness that has given us so much happiness with it, whatever it is, and despise affectation .
