That they may not become too complacent or delighted in married life, he makes them distressed by the shortcomings of their partners, or humbles them through willful offspring, or afflicts them with the want or loss of children. But, if in all these matters he is more merciful to them, he shows them by diseases and dangers how Unstable and passing all mortal blessings are, that they may not be puffed up with vain glory.john calvin
I'm not worrying about my Irish past. What has my Celtic blood ever done for me but give me a restless and Unstable mind that gives me no rest in anything I do? Damn the Shan Van Vocht, and the ancestors that went to Sassenach gallows for her, and damn the Irish and damn the black Milesian blood in my veins that makes me like drift-wood fighting the waves and gives me no peace or rest waking or sleeping or riding or dreaming or traveling or wooing, drunken or sober, with hunger or slumber on me.robert e. howard

As there must be moderation in other things, so there must be moderation in self-criticism. Perpetual contemplation of our own actions produces a morbid consciousness, quite unlike that normal consciousness accompanying right actions spontaneously done; and from a state of Unstable equilibrium long maintained by effort, there is apt to be a fall towards stable equilibrium, in which the primitive nature reasserts itself. Retrogression rather than progression may hence result.Herbert Spencer

The art of the poem nowadays is something Unstable; but at least the construction of the poem should make sense; you should know where you stand. Many questions haven't been answered as yet.

If a totally new image is to come into being however, there must be sensitivity to internal messages, the image itself must be sensitive to change, must be Unstable, and it must include a value image which places high value on trials, experiments, and the trying of new things.kenneth boulding
As our own species is in the process of proving, one cannot have superior science and inferior morals . The combination is Unstable and self-destroying.arthur c. clarke
To carry on a war for the overthrow of the international bourgeoisie, a war which is a hundred times more difficult, protracted and complex than the most stubborn of ordinary wars between states, and to renounce in advance any change of tack, or any utilisation of a conflict of interests (even if temporary) among one’s enemies, or any conciliation or compromise with possible allies (even if they are temporary, Unstable, vacillating or conditional allies) is that not ridiculous in the extreme?
Andrej’s mind, like any sane human’s … was a constantly convulsing dialectical unity of consciousness and subconsciousness, the battening down and channelling of dreams and desires, the recurring re-creation of the subliminal by the contradictory, the rational-capricious ego. And vice versa. The interaction of levels of consciousness into an Unstable and permanently self-renewing whole.china miéville
Man in sooth is a marvellous, vain, fickle, and Unstable subject.Michel de Montaigne
Christine O'Donnell: I think especially in such an Unstable economic environment, what people criticized him for in 2008 his consistency , the fact that he was so strong , and I think people will find that appealing going into the 2012. Carol Costello: Well, some people say Mitt Romney isn't the most consistent candidate, because he's changed his minds about big, important issues over the years. Christine O'Donnell: You know, that's one of the things that I like about him because he's been consistent since he changed his mind.Christine O'Donnell

Fortune is Unstable, while our will is free.
He ordained that his disciples should speak well and think reverently of the Gods, muses and heroes, and likewise of parents and benefactors; that they should obey the laws; that they should not relegate the worship of the Gods to a secondary position, performing it eagerly, even at home; that to the celestial divinities they should sacrifice uncommon offerings; and ordinary ones to the inferior deities. (The world he Divided into) opposite powers; the "one" was a better monad , light, right, equal, stable and straight; while the "other" was an inferior duad , darkness, left, unequal, Unstable and movable.
A great many film stars perched on Unstable ravine edges in the canyon systems of Los Angeles will, like the cemeteries there, eventually slide down to join their unfortunate fellows in the canyon floors, with mud, cars, and embalmed or living film stars in one glorious muddy mass. We should not lend our talents to creating such spectacular catastrophes...bill mollison
