It's me versus Mother Nature and me versus me. I want to see how far a human can fly with six kilograms of high-tech nylon over his head with no engine. Ultimately though, I love being able to fly like a bird.
There is no such thing as communism versus capitalism. There are only degrees of communism and degrees of capitalism.Xuan Oanh Nguyen
The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the people versus the banks.john acton
America’s Christian conservative movement is confronted with this divide: small-government advocates who want to practice their faith independent of heavy-handed government versus big-government sympathizers who want to impose their version of 'righteousness' on others through the hammer of law.... Our movement must avoid the temptations of power and those who would twist the good intentions of Christian voters to support policies that undermine freedom and grow government.dick armey
The next election will be a flyweight versus a heavyweight. However much the right hon. Gentleman (David Cameron) may dance around the ring beforehand, at some point, he will come within the reach of a big clunking fist.gordon brown
It's Microsoft versus mankind, with Microsoft having only a slight leadlarry ellison
When he let Kennedy use his column to send signals to Nikita Khrushchev, or lent his skill to Vandenberg to reinforce the anti-Soviet consensus in American diplomacy, he wasn't acting as a reporter but as a patriot. This urge may be a dereliction of duty in the journalist, but it is a sign of decency in the man. That the two impulses in journalism should so often be at odds — duty versus decency — tells us more about the trade than most of us care to know.andrew ferguson
“If people really stopped and realized how much art and creative people move the world versus politics and religion, I mean it’s not even up for debate. An artist at least creates things, puts things into the world. Where as these other people are destroying things, taking things out of the world.”marilyn manson
There are opposing forces in all living things. My work reflects this and stirs up a contrast of emotions in the viewer... perception versus annoyance. To the viewer who has reached that level of awareness, my work is no longer abstract, but very real.eugene j. martin
The minute we leave south Lebanon we will have to erase the word Hezbollah from our vocabulary, because the whole idea of the State of Israel versus Hezbollah was sheer folly from the outset. It most certainly no longer will be relevant when Israel returns to her internationally recognized northern border.amos oz
"Given my present belief in the much greater range of variability as to both order and kind of complexity in the world's musics versus the world's languages, I can hardly imagine how a model developed really satisfactorily for the detailed structureal explanation of one musical language is so easiy modified to another, and all the more so if the original model be evolved from linguistics rather than from the musical disciplines."harold powers
Metaphysical problems about "mind" versus "matter" arise only from epistemological confusions.raymond smullyan
Our children are better served by speaking not of visitation versus custody, but of parent time.warren farrell
The real question of government versus private enterprise is argued on too philosophical and abstract a basis. Theoretically, planning may be good . But nobody has ever figured out the cause of government stupidity and until they do (and find the cure), all ideal plans will fall into quicksand.richard feynman
This is not a Christian versus Jewish thing. '(Jesus) came into the world and it knew him not.' Looking at Christ's crucifixion, I look first at my own culpability in that.mel gibson
It was a new kind of class war the people as citizens versus the politicians and their clients in the public sector.Irving Kristol
War is pillage versus resistance and if illusions of magnitude could be transmuted into ideals of magnanimity, peace might be realized.marianne moore

But the reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand. And the fight we are in here, make no mistake about it, is a fight of individualism versus collectivism.paul ryan
I was making very aggressive provocative paintings. Whether the Rachel paintings, or the Diana paintings, I've sensed over the three or four years that I've been in getting press attention, I've sensed that it has not been that long since the woman painter was not allowed in the Royal Academy, and not allowed to paint nude men, and thee is such a huge body of work that men have made, versus the small body of work made by women, that I am not surprised to get this response.stella vine
This is one of the two great labyrinths into which human minds are drawn: the question of free will versus predestination.neal stephenson
Breakups have a way of shaking us awake and helping us see what we really want versus what we are willing to settle for.Mandy Hale
Rocket engineering is not like ditch digging. With ditch digging you can get 100 people and dig a ditch, and you will dig it a hundred times as faster if you get 100 people versus one. With rockets, you have to solve the problem of a particular level of difficulty; one person who can solve the problem is worth an infinite number of people who can’t.
Nee satis apparet, cur versus factitet.
And, since people generally go on from this to talk about elitism versus democracy , I would add that genuinely difficult art is truly democratic.
