Not only did I want Bush to win, but we threw the entire weight of The Spectator behind him.
My uncle was famous for his balanced point of view. At the time of which I am writing (when he was nearly seventy) it had become so balanced, that the act of balancing seemed rather automatic.One had only to offer him an opinion for him to balance it with a counter- opinion of exactly the same weight, as a grocer puts a pound weight against a pound of sugar.Sir Stephen Harold Spender
And thou art worthy; full of power; Asgentle; liberal-minded, great, Consistent; wearing all that weight Of learning lightly like a flower.Tennyson
The heart bowed down by weight of woeTo weakest hope will cling.alfred bunn
Eternity invests every state, whether of bliss or of suffering, with a mysterious and awful importance, entirely its own. It gives that weight and moment to whatever it attaches, compared to which all interests that know a period fade into absolute insignificance.robert hall
You must cast yourself on God's gospel with all your weight, without any hanging back, without any doubt, without even the shadow of a suspicion that it will give.alexander maclaren
Conventional wisdom notwithstanding, there is no reason either in football or in poetry why the two should not meet in a man's life if he has the weight and cares about the words.Archibald MacLeish
I don't know my weight. By knowing, I get a little traumatized. I purposely try to avoid getting on a scale.ronaldo
There is nothing left to us but to see how we may be approved of Him, and how we may roll the weight of our weak souls in well-doing upon Him, who is God omnipotent.samuel rutherford
Ours is a golden age of minorities. At no time in the past have dissident minorities felt so much at home and had so much room to throw their weight around. They speak and act as if they were "the people," and what they abominate most is the dissent of the majority.Eric Hoffer
Rather I'd choose laboriously to bear A weight of woes, and breathe the vital air, A slave to some poor hind that toils for bread, Than reign the sceptred monarch of the dead.homer
Consider your honour, as a gentleman, of more weight than an oath.Solon
The whole basis of the United Nations is the right of all nations great or small to have weight, to have a vote, to be attended to, to be a part of the twentieth century.adlai stevenson
A minority is powerless while it conforms to the majority; it is not even a minority then; but it is irresistible when it clogs by its whole weight.Henry David Thoreau
All the technique of the dance is based on a division of the body into two equal halves according to a vertical line which passes through it , ad on the unequal distribution of weight, some times more on one half of the body, some times more on the other half.
We are nearer neighbours to ourselves than whiteness to snow, or weight to stones.Michel de Montaigne
As you do not feel the weight of your head, of hands, and of feet ... so do I feel that these persons are all organic members of THIS BODY; so I don't feel their pressure or find their worries weighing on me. Their joys and sorrows, problems and their solutions, I feel to be vitally mine ... I have no ego sense nor conception of separateness.
I think Terrell will catch hell at the sound of the bell. He's going around saying that he's a championship-fighter, but when he meets me he fall 20 pound lighter. He thinks that he's the real heavy weight champ but when he meets me, he'll just be a tramp Now I'm not sayin' just to be funny, but I'm fightin' Ernie because he needs the money.
Now cheaply bought, for thrice their weight in gold.john ferriar
Unfortunately for the good sense of mankind , the fact of their fallibility is far from carrying the weight in their practical judgment , which is always allowed to it in theory ; for while every one well knows himself to be fallible , few think it necessary to take any precautions against their own fallibility, or admit the supposition that any opinion , of which they feel very certain, may be one of the examples of the error to which they acknowledge themselves to be liable.
All things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God . For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment , worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal .
Without earnestness no man is ever great, or does really great things. He may be the cleverest of men; he may be brilliant, entertaining, popular; but he will want weight. No soul-moving picture was ever painted that had not in it depth of shadow.Peter bayne
Consider your honour, as a gentleman, of more weight than an oath.
...suppose ? without weight, but ? possessing weight; and let ? pass over space ??, but ? in the same time pass over a space ??, for that which has weight will be carried through the larger space. If now the heavy body be divided in the proportion that space ?? bears to ??, ...and if the whole is carried through the whole space ??, then it must be that a part in the same time would be carried through ??...
There was some brilliant use of polymer applied, and the result is a physically large pistol which, with magazine removed, weighs only 20.5 ounces on my scale. That’s less than the weight of a snub-nose Colt Detective Special, but depending on the magazine, the Five-seveN carries ten, twenty, or even thirty rounds of 5.7mm, compared to six rounds of .38 Special in the snubbie.
Knowledge may give weight, but accomplishments give lustre, and many more people see than weigh.
