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.
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
Submit to Islam and be safe. Or agree to the payment of the Jizya (tax), and you and your people will be under our protection, else you will have only yourself to blame for the consequences, for I bring the men who desire death as ardently as you desire life.
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
To act with common sense, according to the moment, is the best wisdom I know; 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.horace walpole
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
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
We wish to control big business so as to secure among other things good wages for the wage-workers and reasonable prices for the consumers. Wherever in any business the prosperity of the businessman is obtained by lowering the wages of his workmen and charging an excessive price to the consumers we wish to interfere and stop such practices. We will not Submit to that kind of prosperity any more than we will Submit to prosperity obtained by swindling investors or getting unfair advantages over business rivals.theodore roosevelt
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
The strongest natures, when they are influenced, Submit the most unreservedly: it is perhaps a sign of their strength. But that Thoreau lost any of his own force in the process, or took on permanently any colours not natural to himself the readers of his books will certainly deny. The Transcendentalist movement, like most movements of vigour, represented the effort of one or two remarkable people to shake off the old clothes which had become uncomfortable to them and fit themselves more closely to what now appeared to them to be the realities.virginia woolf
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.
California is a unique state in that all hospitals are required to Submit a copy of their chargemasters, which the state then posts online for all consumers and patients to see.
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.
If “humility” means nothing more than the capacity to learn from criticism, then it has an undoubted value; but if “humility” means a willingness to Submit to authority to abandon or to modify what one is doing merely because it does not accord with the teachings of the Bible or the thoughts of Chairman Mao then it is death to the spirit: the proper name for it, indeed, is “servility.”john passmore
The American people must understand that the China of today is not the China of 20 years ago. There has been a natural awakening. China will never Submit to the Japanese.
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 .
