Defense quotes by Ashleigh Brilliant
#1. My first line of defense against reality is called sleep. #Quote by Ashleigh Brilliant
Defense quotes by Chuck Norris
#2. Where's Barack Obama when Christmas references are being erased from civic calendars? Is he crying out in defense of religious liberty and our First Amendment? Nope. He's as silent as a church mouse. And animosity toward religion continues to grow. #Quote by Chuck Norris
Defense quotes by Smedley D. Butler
#3. There are only two reasons why you should ever be asked to give your youngsters. One is defense of our homes. The other is the defense of our Bill of Rights and particularly the right to worship God as we see fit. Every other reason advanced for the murder of young men is a racket, pure and simple. #Quote by Smedley D. Butler
Defense quotes by Robert M. Gates
#4. The challenge is to maintain a high-level, broad perspective, understand enough details to make sensible and executable decisions, and then delegate responsibility for implementation. "Microknowledge" must not become micromanagement, but it sure helps keep people on their toes when they know that the secretary knows what the hell he's talking about. If the secretary of defense doesn't #Quote by Robert M. Gates
Defense quotes by Perry Kivolowitz
#5. Secretary of Defense once said, "You go to the zombie apocalypse with the tech you have not the tech you want." Of course Donald Rumsfeld didn't say exactly that, but the meaning is similar. #Quote by Perry Kivolowitz
Defense quotes by Thom Yorke
#6. My only means of self defense is to wiggle my eye and feign being a salamander. It has saved my life but once I was partially eaten by a bald eagle who thought I was a salamander. Hence, my skills. Hence. #Quote by Thom Yorke
Defense quotes by Ted Cruz
#7. It is true that I voted against the National Defense Authorization Act, because when I campaigned in Texas I told voters in Texas that I would oppose the federal government having the authority to detain U.S. citizens permanently with no due process. I have repeatedly supported an effort to take that out of that bill, and I honored that campaign commitment. #Quote by Ted Cruz
Defense quotes by James Madison
#8. A universal peace, it is to be feared, is in the catalogue of events, which will never exist but in the imaginations of visionary philosophers, or in the breasts of benevolent enthusiasts. #Quote by James Madison
Defense quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#9. So, we have an element newly prominent in American religious and political life, a new form of entitlement, a self-declared elect. What some have seen as a resurgence of Christianity, or at least a bold defense of American cultural tradition - even as another great awakening! - has brought a harshness, a bitterness, a crudeness, and a high-handedness into the public sphere that are only to be compared to the politics, or the collapse of politics, in the period before the Civil War. Its self-righteousness fuels the damnedest things - I use the word advisedly - notably the acquisition of homicidal weapons. I wonder what these supposed biblicists find in the Gospels or the Epistles that could begin to excuse any of it. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Defense quotes by Nenia Campbell
#10. She wasn't soft or pretty; she was hard-edged and cold, like one of those cold bronze statues surrounded by high fences and crowned in razor wire. Don't touch me, such defenses said, but it wasn't enough to halt a breach, no. She had thought people only picked the soft-petaled, sweet-smelling flowers, but some people took thorns as a challenge. #Quote by Nenia Campbell
Defense quotes by Tracee Ellis Ross
#11. I was very shy growing up. My shyness manifested as a big personality, as opposed to the wallflower personality. It's been a journey getting comfortable in my skin. I've worked on trying to find the authentic balance between the bravado of my personality that was sort of a defense and the truth within my bigness. #Quote by Tracee Ellis Ross
Defense quotes by Douglas Adams
#12. Believe me, it is a great deal better to find cast-iron proof that you're innocent than to languish in a cell hoping that the police
who already think you're guilty
will find it for you. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Defense quotes by Helen McCloy
#13. That's the one thing a politician mustn't have - political opinions or principles. He can have prejudices - indeed he must have prejudices and share all the popular political superstitions of the moment as ardently as he can. But he must not have principles. He must never let the people suspect that they cannot eat their cake and have it. He must promise them a defense program and a higher standard of living. He must never use that dreadful little word or. #Quote by Helen McCloy
Defense quotes by A.E. Samaan
#14. The right to self defense is inalienable from the right to life. Weaken one and the other is devalued. Surrender your arms today and forfeit your life tomorrow. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Defense quotes by Orson Scott Card
#15. There are times when you have to defend yourself or someone else against relentless evil. And some of those times the only defense that has any hope of succeeding is a one-time use of brutal, devastating force. At such times good people act brutally. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Defense quotes by David Robinson
#16. Defense is what matters. Scoring doesn't interest me. #Quote by David Robinson
Defense quotes by Irvin D. Yalom
#17. Despite the staunchest, most venerable defenses, we can never completely subdue death anxiety: it is always there, lurking in some hidden ravine of the mind. #Quote by Irvin D. Yalom
Defense quotes by Erwin W. Lutzer
#18. When the mask of self-righteousness has been torn from us and we stand stripped of all our accustomed defenses, we are candidates for God's generous grace. #Quote by Erwin W. Lutzer
Defense quotes by Lou Holtz
#19. The team that's on defense first (in overtime) has the advantage because they know whether they need a touchdown a field goal or just a score. #Quote by Lou Holtz
Defense quotes by Russ Carnahan
#20. From protecting our natural resources to providing maritime security and national defense, the Coast Guard's duties are broad in scope, and the performance of those duties has never been more important. #Quote by Russ Carnahan
Defense quotes by David Halberstam
#21. Because Japan had no defense industry, he knew, and not even an airplane industry, the best engineers of a generation were being funneled into other, seemingly more prosaic sectors, like automobiles, for example, and steel. These industries, which in America were having increasing difficulty competing for top engineers, were getting the absolute cream in Japan. This advantage in talent was already making a considerable difference, Hayashi believed, as Japan's heavy industries began to compete in the world's markets. #Quote by David Halberstam
Defense quotes by C.S. Harris
#22. The Church, like the monarchy, was a valuable bastion of defense against the dangerous alliance of atheistical philosophy with political radicalism. The Bible taught the poorer orders that their lowly path had been allotted to them by the hand of God, and the Church was there to make quite certain they understood that. #Quote by C.S. Harris
Defense quotes by Alice Walker
#23. Abortion, for many women, is more than an experience of suffering beyond anything most men will ever know, it is an act of mercy, and an act of self-defense. #Quote by Alice Walker
Defense quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#24. In this hope, among the things we teach to the young are such truths as the transcendent value of the individual and the dignity of all people, the futility and stupidity of war, its destructiveness of life and its degradation of human values. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Defense quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#25. Do ye dare to draw arms against the justice of God?" snapped the tubby little judge. Jamie drew the sword completely, with a flash of steel, then thrust it point-first into the ground, leaving the hilt quivering with the force of the blow.
"I draw it in defense of this women, and the truth," he said "If any here be against those two they'll answer to me, and then God, in that order. #Quote by Diana Gabaldon
Defense quotes by Frans De Waal
#26. If you wish to expel religion from our European civilization you can only do it through another system of doctrines, and from the outset this would take over all the psychological characteristics of religion, the same sanctity, rigidity, and intolerance, the same prohibition of thought in self-defense. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Defense quotes by James Ellroy
#27. Cliché shouters, sloganeers, fashion-conscious pseudoidealists. Locusts attacking social causes with the wrong information and bogus solutions, their one legit gripe--the Sleepy Lagoon case--almost blown through guilt by association: fellow travelers soliciting actual Party members for picketing and leaflet distribution, nearly discrediting everything the Sleepy Lagoon Defense Committee said and did. Hollywood writers and actors and hangers-on spouting cheap trauma, Pinko platitudes and guilt over raking in big money during the Depression, then penancing the bucks out to spurious leftist causes. People led to Lesnick's couch by their promiscuity and dipshit politics. #Quote by James Ellroy
Defense quotes by Bertrand Russell
#28. The purpose of education is to teach a defense against eloquence. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Defense quotes by Pete Morin
#29. Remember, we all make our work available in a commercial transaction, the terms of which we, ourselves, dictate. If we give it away for free, that's our decision, and there is no refuge in the lame defense, "what do you want for nothing?" The buyer does not waive his right to express his opinion."
[Thick Skin and Bad Reviews, Blog post, June 26, 2013] #Quote by Pete Morin
Defense quotes by Jeb Bush
#30. Regarding national security, we need to restore the defense cuts of Barack Obama to rebuild our military, to destroy ISIS before it destroys us. Regarding economic security, we need to take power and money away from Washington D.C. and empower American families so that they can rise up again. #Quote by Jeb Bush
Defense quotes by J.K. Rowling
#31. He knew one thing only, and it was beyond fear or reason: He was not going to die crouching here like a child playing hide-and-seek; he was not going to die kneeling at Voldemort's feet ... he was going to die upright like his father, and he was going to die trying to defend himself, even if no defense was possible ... #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Defense quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#32. By deriving it's just powers from the governed, government becomes primarily a mechanism for defense against bodily harm, theft, and involuntary servitude. It cannot claim the power to redistribute money or property nor to force reluctant citizens to perform acts of charity against their will. Government is created by the people. No individual possesses the power to take another's wealth or to force others to do good, so no government has the the right to do such things either. The creature cannot exceed the creator. #Quote by Ezra Taft Benson
Defense quotes by George Lakoff
#33. As we pointed out, the common principles of conservative thought make up a list crying out for an explanation of how they fit together: smaller government; strong defense; lower taxes; traditional family values; personal responsibility; and free markets. As we have seen, these all flow from a strict father morality. Finally, #Quote by George Lakoff
Defense quotes by Elle Katharine White
#34. I've been in many battles in my lifetime. I've slain monsters by the hundreds and won more victories than I can count, but against this there's no defense. From the moment we met I tried fighting it - gods, I've tried. Nothing works. I thought I'd be safe at the other end of the country, but the minute I heard you were coming to Edan Rose I flew here as fast as Akarra would take me. I'm a Rider and you're a nakla," Daired said. "There's nothing we have in common. There's nothing we should have in common. Your birth, your bloodline, all of it - it's beneath me. I know all of that, and it hasn't changed a thing. I've lost, Aliza. You've defeated me. #Quote by Elle Katharine White
Defense quotes by George W. Bush
#35. Through centuries of struggle, Jews across the world have been witnesses not only against the crimes of men, but for faith in God, and God alone. Theirs is a story of defiance in oppression and patience in tribulation - reaching back to the exodus and their exile into the diaspora. That story continued in the founding of the State of Israel. The story continues in the defense of the State of Israel. #Quote by George W. Bush
Defense quotes by Joe Biden
#36. Fighting corruption is not just good governance. It's self-defense. It's patriotism. #Quote by Joe Biden
Defense quotes by Dave Barry
#37. Look, in particular, at the people who, like you, are making average incomes for doing average jobs- bank vice presidents, insurance salesmen, auditors, secretaries of defense- and you'll realie they all dress the same way, essentially the way the mannequins in the Sears menswear department dress. Now look at the real successes, the people who make a lot more money than you- Elton John, Captain Kangaroo, anybody from Saudi Arabia, Big Bird, and so on. They all dress funny- and they all succeed. #Quote by Dave Barry
Defense quotes by Logan Mankins
#38. It's always great when you just pound the rock, impose your will, and that is going to break the spirit of the defense if you can keep running it and they can't stop you. #Quote by Logan Mankins
Defense quotes by George W. Romney
#39. Extremism in defense of liberty is not a vice, but I denounce political extremism, of the left or the right, based on duplicity, falsehood, fear, violence and threats when they endanger liberty. #Quote by George W. Romney
Defense quotes by Jane Mayer
#40. The Kochs were unusually single-minded, but they were not alone. They were among a small, rarefied group of hugely wealthy, archconservative families that for decades poured money, often with little public disclosure, into influencing how Americans thought and voted. Their efforts began in earnest in the second half of the twentieth century. In addition to the Kochs, this group included Richard Mellon Scaife, an heir to the Mellon banking and Gulf Oil fortunes; Harry and Lynde Bradley, midwesterners enriched by defense contracts; John M. Olin, a chemical and munitions company titan; the Coors brewing family of Colorado; and the DeVos family if Michigan, founders of the Amway marketing empire. Each was different, but together they formed a new generation of philanthropist, bent on using billions if dollars from their private foundations to alter the direction of American politics. #Quote by Jane Mayer
Defense quotes by John Grisham
#41. This is not a problem peculiar to Oklahoma, far from it. Wrongful convictions occur every month in every state in this country, and the reasons are all varied and all the same - bad police work, junk science, faulty eyewitness identifications, bad defense lawyers, lazy prosecutors, arrogant prosecutors. #Quote by John Grisham
Defense quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#42. But I have a flash of Good News from the Police Atrocity front, which is heating up in Denver. ... Stand back! Good News is rare in the Criminal Justice System, but every once in a while you find it, and this is one of those times. To wit: the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers has formally entered the Appeals trial of young Lisl Auman - the girl who remains locked up in a cell at the Colorado State Prison for the Rest of Her Life with No Possibility of Parole for a bogus crime she was never even Accused of committing. She is a living victim of a cold-blooded political trial that will cast a long shadow on Denver for many years to come. Lisl is the only person ever convicted in the United States for Felony Murder who was in police custody when the crime happened. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Defense quotes by Sun Tzu
#43. You can ensure the safety of your defense if you only hold positions that cannot be attacked. #Quote by Sun Tzu
Defense quotes by Che Guevara
#44. If they attack, we shall fight to the end. If the rockets had remained, we would have used them all and directed them against the very heart of the United States, including New York, in our defense against aggression. But we haven't got them, so we shall fight with what we've got. #Quote by Che Guevara
Defense quotes by Jill Shalvis
#45. Fine. It's your life, but - " "But you're still going to tell me what to do?" he asked, a small smile on his lips. She went into defense mode at his amused tone. "Well, I'm sure as hell not going to be quiet about it." "Duly noted," he said dryly. "And for the record? I never want you to be quiet, Elle. #Quote by Jill Shalvis
Defense quotes by Bob Woodward
#46. For those of you who were critical that nobody paid enough attention to the generals at the beginning of the war, has it occurred to you that you don't want to make that mistake at the end of the war?
Secretary Robert Gates #Quote by Bob Woodward
Defense quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#47. The power of the ballot we need in sheer defense,
else what shall save us from a second slavery? #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
Defense quotes by Bill Kristol
#48. Patriotism is an indispensable weapon in the defense of civilization against barbarism. #Quote by Bill Kristol
Defense quotes by Jon Gruden
#49. The Seahawks defense has to go balls deep to win this game. #Quote by Jon Gruden
Defense quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#50. A nation with a goofy foreign policy needs a very serious policy of defense. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Defense quotes by Henry Giroux
#51. University presidents should be loud and forceful in defending the university as a social good, essential to the democratic culture and economy of a nation. They should be criticizing the prioritizing of funds for military and prison expenditures over funds for higher education. And this argument should be made as a defense of education, as a crucial public good, and it should be taken seriously. But they aren't making these arguments. #Quote by Henry Giroux
Defense quotes by David Ignatius
#52. Bob Gates has unusual standing in the debate about the Obama administration's foreign policy: He was defense secretary for both a hawkish President George W. Bush and a wary President Obama. He understood Bush's desire to project power and Obama's skepticism. #Quote by David Ignatius
Defense quotes by James S.A. Corey
#53. Aw, you goddammed bastards! They're shootin' him while he's down! Son of a bitch!"
The ship stopped moving, and Alex said in a quiet voice, "Suck on this, asshole."
The ship vibrated for half a second, then paused before continuing toward the lock.
"Point defense cannons?" Holden asked.
"Summary roadside justice," Alex grunted back. #Quote by James S.A. Corey
Defense quotes by Vicki Escarra
#54. Federal nutrition programs are the first line of defense for food insecure Americans, but do not meet all of the needs of everyone who needs help. #Quote by Vicki Escarra
Defense quotes by Patricia Briggs
#55. I would never disrespect your grandmother's rolling pin. Your old pack did everything in their power to turn you into a victim, and when that crazy wolf started for me, you still grabbed the rolling pin to defend me from him, even though you were terrified of him. I think it is the bravest thing I have ever seen. And possibly the only time anyone has tried to defend me since I reached adulthood. #Quote by Patricia Briggs
Defense quotes by Stefan Molyneux
#56. States will invent obscure constructs like "white privilege" and "male privilege" because they are convenient to further the state's ends. They are untestable, unmeasurable, and unprovable, but they sound legitimate to those who consider themselves a casualty of society. Despite the lack of evidence, they put the burden on the white male to disprove the accuser. Since no such constructs exist, no method of defense is possible. #Quote by Stefan Molyneux
Defense quotes by Aeschylus
#57. I will speak in defense of reason: for the very child of vanity is violence. #Quote by Aeschylus
Defense quotes by Dave Eggers
#58. The gimmickry is simply a device, a defense, to obscure the black, blinding, murderous rage and sorrow at the core of this whole story, which is both too black and blinding to look at
avert your eyes!
but nevertheless useful, at least to the author, even in caricatured or condensed form, because telling as many people as possible about it helps, he thinks, to dilute the pain and bitterness and thus facilitate its flushing from his soul #Quote by Dave Eggers
Defense quotes by Louise Slaughter
#59. The Defense Department must do a better job of providing the best possible care for service women who are victims of sexual assault. #Quote by Louise Slaughter
Defense quotes by Michael Jeffery
#60. For us Australians, Singapore also represents sacred soil. Almost 2000 Australians died here in the defense of your island country and our neighborhood. #Quote by Michael Jeffery
Defense quotes by Orrin Woodward
#61. The two major ways people fail financially: 1) Spend when they should save. 2) Save when they should invest. #Quote by Orrin Woodward
Defense quotes by Lawrence Timmons
#62. I just want to be great. I want to stand out, be a great leader for this defense, and I'm just trying to leave it all out on the field. #Quote by Lawrence Timmons
Defense quotes by Rand Paul
#63. Cut defense spending as part of cutting all federal spending. #Quote by Rand Paul
Defense quotes by Daniella Alonso
#64. I actually take karate and tae-kwon-do. And so I love sparring and grappling and all that physical stuff. I studied a hybrid form of grappling, sparring, and self defense; it's more of a 'get yourself in shape,' and if you want to take it to the next level, so you're really learning valuable skills with self defense, and I really enjoy it. #Quote by Daniella Alonso
Defense quotes by James S.A. Corey
#65. Oh shit, I can see Gomez," Alex said over the comm. "He's down. Aw, you goddammed bastards! They're shootin' him while he's down! Son of a bitch!" The ship stopped moving, and Alex said in a quiet voice, "Suck on this, asshole." The ship vibrated for half a second, then paused before continuing toward the lock. "Point defense cannons?" Holden asked. "Summary roadside justice," Alex grunted back. Holden #Quote by James S.A. Corey
Defense quotes by Adolf Hitler
#66. Protestantism as such is a better defender of the interests of Germanism, in so far as this is grounded in its genesis and later tradition; it fails, however, in the moment when this defense of national interests must take place in a province which is either absent from the general line of its ideological world and traditional development, or is for some reason rejected. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Defense quotes by Seth Grahame-Smith
#67. I do not expect I shall ever again have the opportunity of defending and murdering a client in the same day. - Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter #Quote by Seth Grahame-Smith
Defense quotes by Jack Gilbert
#68. A Brief for the Defense

Sorrow everywhere. Slaughter everywhere. If babies
are not starving someplace, they are starving
somewhere else. With flies in their nostrils.
But we enjoy our lives because that's what God wants.
Otherwise the mornings before summer dawn would not
be made so fine. The Bengal tiger would not
be fashioned so miraculously well. The poor women
at the fountain are laughing together between
the suffering they have known and the awfulness
in their future, smiling and laughing while somebody
in the village is very sick. There is laughter
every day in the terrible streets of Calcutta,
and the women laugh in the cages of Bombay.
If we deny our happiness, resist our satisfaction,
we lessen the importance of their deprivation.
We must risk delight. We can do without pleasure,
but not delight. Not enjoyment. We must have
the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless
furnace of this world. To make injustice the only
measure of our attention is to praise the Devil.
If the locomotive of the Lord runs us down,
we should give thanks that the end had magnitude.
We must admit there will be music despite everything.
We stand at the prow again of a small ship
anchored late at night in the tiny port
looking over to the sleeping island: the waterfront
is three shuttered cafés and one naked light burni #Quote by Jack Gilbert
Defense quotes by Bill Walton
#69. When you intercept the ball with your stomach, that is great defense #Quote by Bill Walton
Defense quotes by John Scalzi
#70. While landing a spacecraft on a planet via Skip Drive navigation was officially and strongly discouraged by the Colonial Union, the Colonial Defense Forces recognized the strategic value of sudden and unexpected arrivals. #Quote by John Scalzi
Defense quotes by Noam Chomsky
#71. Citizens of the democratic societies should undertake a course of intellectual self defense to protect themselves from manipulation and control, and to lay the basis for meaningful democracy. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Defense quotes by Brock Lesnar
#72. I lift weights, but that's not my main focus. I'm a fighter now, and I want to evolve and make myself a well-rounded fighter, so obviously I'm not going to leave any stone unturned, when it comes to submissions, submission defense, striking, knees, leg kicks, and also learning to defend everything. It's not just an offensive sport because you're going to take some punches and you're going to give some punches. You've got to be able to handle both sides of the spectrum. I've brought in a number of highly trained trainers to help me evolve, and I believe we've left no stone unturned. #Quote by Brock Lesnar
Defense quotes by Sue Wicks
#73. When I come off the bench, I'm looking to add energy, and then I play defense and rebound. Also, at the end of the game, I have the experience to go out there and help us win. #Quote by Sue Wicks
Defense quotes by Naomi Wolf
#74. Peace is bad for business. When the former Soviet Union fell apart, the U.S. defense industry was staring into the face of a falling market share: To grow, it would have to find a new enemy. It would also help if it expanded its product line from building fighter jets to the newfangled demand for applications involving surveillance. #Quote by Naomi Wolf
Defense quotes by Joshua Cohen
#75. It was only in Palo Alto that I searched "Rachav Binder" and "Rach Binder," got an undousable flame of her defense of an article of mine critical of the Mormon Church's databasing of Holocaust victims in order to speed their posthumous conversions #Quote by Joshua Cohen
Defense quotes by Michael Miklaucic
#76. Complex operations, in which agencies assume complementary roles and operate in close proximity-often with similar missions but conflicting mandates-accentuate these tensions. The tensions are evident in the processes of analyzing complex environments, planning for complex interventions, and implementing complex operations. Many reports and analyses forecast that these complex operations are precisely those that will demand our attention most in the indefinite future.

As essayist Barton and O'Connell note, our intelligence and understanding of the root cause of conflict, multiplicity of motivations and grievances, and disposition of actors is often inadequate. Moreover, the problems that complex operations are intended and implemented to address are convoluted, and often inscrutable. They exhibit many if not all the characteristics of "wicked problems," as enumerated by Rittel and Webber in 1973: they defy definitive formulations; any proposed solution or intervention causes the problem to mutate, so there is no second chance at a solution; every situation is unique; each wicked problem can be considered a symptom of another problem. As a result, policy objectives are often compound and ambiguous. The requirements of stability, for example, in Afghanistan today, may conflict with the requirements for democratic governance. Efforts to establish an equitable social contract may well exacerbate inter-communal tensions that can lead to violence. The rule of law, as we #Quote by Michael Miklaucic
Defense quotes by Rudy Giuliani
#77. Republicans spend too much time on defense. We have to be on offense. We have to point out the truth. President Obama stole seven hundred million dollars from Medicare. Republicans want to preserve Medicare. Obamacare robs from Medicare. #Quote by Rudy Giuliani
Defense quotes by Dean Koontz
#78. Home is the first refuge from - and last defense against - the disappointments and the terrors of life. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Defense quotes by Kate McGahan
#79. I see how you look at me," spits the hateful man. He thinks we look upon him with the evil eye when we are not looking at him that way at all. We are just looking at him. It's because he can't accept the hate inside of himself that he projects it onto us. #Quote by Kate McGahan
Defense quotes by Peter Marshall
#80. Preaching after the battles of Lexington and Concord, William Stearns had said: We trust that all whose circumstance will admit of it will go. that none such will refuse to enlist in defense of his country. When God, in His providence, calls to take the sword, if any refuse to obey, Heaven's dread artillery is leveled against them, as you may see ... Cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood! (Jeremiah 48:10). Cursed is the sneaking coward who neglects the sinking state, when called to its defense - O then flee this dire curse - let America's valorous sons put on the harness, nor take it off till peace shall be to Israel. #Quote by Peter Marshall
Defense quotes by Allen Iverson
#81. We got to stop people. We go ahead and we score 100 points every night, but we give up more. Our whole thing was, we know we can score, and we have to start having some kind of fun on the defensive end. Everybody want to play offense. Not too many people want to play defense. Defense is ego, pride, and that's the way we've been coming out, just taking the challenge. Man-on-man first, and having each other's back when a guy gets beat. #Quote by Allen Iverson
Defense quotes by Joseph Addison
#82. There is no defense against reproach, but obscurity; it is a kind of concomitant to greatness. #Quote by Joseph Addison
Defense quotes by Alexander Lowen
#83. Therapy takes us backward into a forgotten past, but this was not a safe and secure time, else we would not have emerged from it scarred by battle wounds and armoured in self-defense. #Quote by Alexander Lowen
Defense quotes by Martin Brodeur
#84. You can't be happy, taking away something I've worked on all my life to do and help my teammates and help my defense, ... It's just part of me, playing the puck. So, definitely, you can't be happy. #Quote by Martin Brodeur
Defense quotes by Kirk McLean
#85. It is pretty tough for a goalie when you look at it. You're always the last line of defense. If you let a goal in, you can't go to the bench and hide between the guys or anything #Quote by Kirk McLean
Defense quotes by Bohdi Sanders
#86. Don't entertain others at the expense of your reputation. #Quote by Bohdi Sanders
Defense quotes by Tyler Drumheller
#87. Europe has become the first line of defense for the United States. It has become a training ground for terrorists. #Quote by Tyler Drumheller
Defense quotes by Frank Herbert
#88. They were undoubtedbly sincere in subscribing to the argument that nuclear weapons were a reserve held for one purpose: defense of humankind should a threatening 'other intelligence' ever be encountered. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Defense quotes by David Foster Wallace
#89. The depressed person's therapist was always extremely careful to avoid appearing to judge or blame the depressed person for clinging to her defenses, or to suggest that the depressed person had in any way consciously chosen or chosen to cling to a chronic depression whose agony made her (i.e., the depressed person's) every waking hour feel like more than any person could possibly endure. This renunciation of judgment or imposed value was held by the therapeutic school in which the therapist's philosophy of healing had evolved over almost fifteen years of clinical experience to be integral to the combination of unconditional support and complete honesty about feelings which composed the nurturing professionalism required for a productive therapeutic journey toward authenticity and intrapersonal wholeness. Defenses against intimacy, the depressed person's therapist's experiential theory held, were nearly always arrested or vestigial survival-mechanisms; i.e., they had, at one time, been environmentally appropriate and necessary and had very probably served to shield a defenseless childhood psyche against potentially unbearable trauma, but in nearly all cases they (i.e., the defense-mechanisms) had become inappropriately imprinted and arrested and were now, in adulthood, no longer environmentally appropriate and in fact now, paradoxically, actually caused a great deal more trauma and pain than they prevented. Nevertheless, the therapist had made it clear from the outset that she #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Defense quotes by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
#90. Bobby Tom told me he's not afraid of the Chargers' defense."
"Bobby Tom'll tell you he's not afraid of nuclear war, so I wouldn't put too much stock in his opinion. #Quote by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Defense quotes by Brian Doyle
#91. When young we think there will come one person who will savor and sustain us always; when we are older we know this is the dream of a child, that all hearts finally are bruised and scarred, scored and torn, repaired by time and will, patched by force of character, yet fragile and rickety forevermore, no matter how ferocious the defense and how many bricks you bring to the wall. #Quote by Brian Doyle
Defense quotes by Barack Obama
#92. You and I, as citizens, have the obligation to shape the debates of our time, not only with the votes we cast, but the voices we lift in defense of our most ancient values and enduring ideas. #Quote by Barack Obama
Defense quotes by Julianna Baggott
#93. My childhood was marked by the great fear of nuclear holocaust. We practiced our Civil Defense Drills, lining up in hallways, curled to the floor, but we knew we'd die or, worse, survive only to suffer radiation and slow death. #Quote by Julianna Baggott
Defense quotes by John Bolton
#94. There is no excuse for waste, fraud, and abuse in the Defense Department budget. #Quote by John Bolton
Defense quotes by Margaret Thatcher

Defense quotes by Benson Bruno
#96. Dear sirs,
The cold war isn't over. When national borders fail, the epidermis is the last line of defense. We are counting on you.
Sincerely,
Patriot #Quote by Benson Bruno
Defense quotes by Aaron Sorkin
#97. We lead the world in only 3 categories: number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of adults who believe angels are real, and defense spending, where we spend more than the next 26 countries combined, 25 of whom are allies. Now none of this is the fault of 20 year old college student, but you nonetheless are without a doubt a member of the worst period generation period ever period, so when you ask what makes us the greatest country in the world I don't know what the f^&k you're talking about. #Quote by Aaron Sorkin
Defense quotes by William Lane Craig
#98. Apologetics comes from the Greek word apologia, which means a defense, as in a court of law. Christian apologetics involves making a case for the truth of the Christian faith. #Quote by William Lane Craig
Defense quotes by Kenneth Rexroth
#99. Against the ruin of the world, there is only one defense - the creative act. #Quote by Kenneth Rexroth
Defense quotes by Colin Powell
#100. I've voted for Republicans who were strong on defense, who believed in a free and open economy but who also understood that there's a place for government in our lives, that government has a responsibility to those of our citizens who are in need and those of our citizens who are needy of health care. #Quote by Colin Powell
Defense quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#101. In a long and fiercely argued process, against the strenuous resistance of the peers, he ordered the Sire de Coucy to stand trial. Enguerrand IV was convicted, and although the King intended a death sentence, he was persuaded by the peers to forgo it. Enguerrand was sentenced to pay a fine of 12,000 livres, to be used partly to endow masses in perpetuity for the souls of the men he had hanged, and partly to be sent to Acre to aid in the defense of the Holy Land. Legal history was made and later cited as a factor in the canonization of the King. #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Defense quotes by Rory Miller
#102. It is much easier and safer to scare someone into submission than to beat them into submission. #Quote by Rory Miller
Defense quotes by Suzanne Collins
#103. Your only defense can be you were so madly in love you weren't responsible for your actions. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Defense quotes by Brian Curtis
#104. when a football player steps on a field, he should do it all. I realize a great running back doesn't like to play defense, but life isn't based on what you like. If everyone did what he liked to do, we'd be in real trouble. #Quote by Brian Curtis
Defense quotes by Melody Beattie
#105. I saw people who were hostile; they had felt so much hurt that hostility was their only defense against being crushed again. #Quote by Melody Beattie
Defense quotes by Gerald R. Ford
#106. A strong defense is the surest way to peace. Strength makes detente attainable. Weakness invites war, as my generationmy generationknows from four very bitter experiences. Just as Americas will for peace is second to none, so will Americas strength be second to none. We cannot rely on the forbearance of others to protect this Nation. The power and diversity of the Armed Forces, active Guard and Reserve, the resolve of our fellow citizens, the flexibility in our command to navigate international waters that remain troubled are all essential to our security. #Quote by Gerald R. Ford
Defense quotes by Jojo Moyes
#107. You know, you would never have let those breasts so close to me if I weren't in a wheelchair,' he murmured.
I looked back at him steadily. 'You would never have looked at my breasts if you hadn't been in a wheelchair.'
'What? Of course I would.'
'Nope. You would have been far too busy looking at the tall blonde girls with the endless legs and the big hair, the ones who can smell an expense account at forty paces. And anyway, I wouldn't have been here. I would have been serving the drinks over there. One of the invisibles.'
He blinked.
'Well? I'm right, aren't I?'
Will glanced over at the bar, then back at me. 'Yes. But in my defense, Clark, I was an arse. #Quote by Jojo Moyes
Defense quotes by Blaise Pascal
#108. The best defense against logic is ignorance. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Defense quotes by Sun Tzu
#109. I have three treasures that I keep and prize: one is kindness, second is frugality, and third is not presuming to take precedence over others. By kindness one can be brave, by frugality one can reach out, and by not presuming to take precedence one can survive effectively. If one gives up kindness and courage, gives up frugality and breadth, and gives up humility for aggressiveness, one will die. The exercise of kindness in battle leads to victory, the exercise of kindness in defense leads to security. #Quote by Sun Tzu
Defense quotes by Juhani Pallasmaa
#110. I see the task of architecture as the defense of the authenticity of human experience #Quote by Juhani Pallasmaa
Defense quotes by Hafez
#111. A day of Silence
Can be a pilgrimage in itself.

A day of Silence
Can help you listen
To the Soul play
Its marvelous lute and drum.

Is not most talking
A crazed defense of a crumbling fort?

I thought we came here
To surrender in Silence,

To yield to Light and Happiness,

To Dance within,
In celebration of Love's Victory #Quote by Hafez
Defense quotes by John Adams
#112. Here, every private person is authorized to arm himself, and on the strength of this authority, I do not deny the inhabitants had a right to arm themselves at that time, for their defense, not for offense ... #Quote by John Adams
Defense quotes by Bobbie Ann Mason
#113. During the Cold War, workers proudly contributed to national defense, but the carelessness and haste in handling toxic waste created a nightmare of pollution for subsequent generations. #Quote by Bobbie Ann Mason
Defense quotes by Robert Greene
#114. If you are armed with knowledge, if you are aware that certain dynamics are at play then you have options. You can play defense, you can ignore certain person and take the consequences perhaps with a game plan in mind and it goes on, you've increased your options. #Quote by Robert Greene
Defense quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#115. As we have seen, the first public expression of disenchantment with nonviolence arose around the question of 'self-defense.' In a sense this is a false issue, for the right to defend one's home and one's person when attacked has been guaranteed through the ages by common law. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Defense quotes by Jesse Plemons
#116. In middle school, I played quarterback. I was at a tiny school, so you played offense and defense - I played linebacker, and in high school I stopped playing around my sophomore year because of my acting stuff. #Quote by Jesse Plemons
Defense quotes by Dan Bergstein
#117. There's a small moment in this chapter when Bella wants to practice fighting techniques with Emmett, but Edward won't let her.
Emmett is here? Hi Emmett! Hey Emmett, according to Google Maps, you live 2,931 miles away from me. If I don't make any stops for food or fuel, and sit on a pile of absorbent kitty litter, I can make the trip in 48 hours. So I can be there by Sunday or Monday. Oh ... hey, did you know Monday is Valentine's Day? That's super weird, right? Didn't plan that at all. I swear. OK, see you then!
Anyway, Bella wants to practice with Emmett but Edward says no. Huh? Not only does Edward refuse to teach his wife basic self-defense, but she can't even learn some tips from The Pain Maker? Why? I dare you to explain this. I double wolf dare you. #Quote by Dan Bergstein
Defense quotes by Chris Bliss
#118. Comedy [deals] with a lot of the same areas where our defenses are the strongest - race, religion, politics, sexuality. #Quote by Chris Bliss
Defense quotes by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
#119. Without the withering criticism by nominalism, medieval Christian philosophy and theology would not have relinquished their claim to the role of knowledge in discovering the nature of things in light of higher principles; instead, it caused them to leave the field of battle without any defense before the onslaught of secularism, rationalism, and empiricism, which were, as a result, able to gain a remarkably easy victory. #Quote by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
Defense quotes by Mitt Romney
#120. Make no mistake, in this campaign, I will offer the American ideals of economic freedom a clear and unapologetic defense. #Quote by Mitt Romney
Defense quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#121. Before and after emancipation, the Negro, in self-defense, was propelled toward the white employer. The endowments of wealthy white men have developed great institutions of learning for the Negro, but the freedom of action on the part of these same universities has been curtailed in proportion as they are indebted to white philanthropies. #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
Defense quotes by William F. Buckley, Jr.
#122. The best defense against usurpatory government is an assertive citizenry. #Quote by William F. Buckley, Jr.
Defense quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#123. There are no creatures that walk the earth, not even those animals we have labelled cowards, which will not show courage when required to defend themselves. #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
Defense quotes by Doug Harvey
#124. Balls and strikes are the basic tenet to everything in baseball. From the perspective of hitting, pitching, offense and defense, it's all about the strike zone and how the battle is waged there between the pitcher and hitter. #Quote by Doug Harvey
Defense quotes by Dawn Lee McKenna
#125. Go 'head mouth off to me some mo'. I buzz you with my buzzer." Bennett lowered the paper to the table. "For the last time, it's not a 'buzzer.' It's not like one of those party tricks that gives somebody a little zap. It's a Taser. It's for self-defense, not for smacking someone you can't reach, and not for frying the brains out of the neighbor's dog. #Quote by Dawn Lee McKenna
Defense quotes by Mark M. Bello
#126. Conventional wisdom says if a jury is going to no-cause the plaintiff - award no damages - the verdict will be swift. Similar logic applies to criminal trials where juries will, within hours, convict people, but take days to acquit. In civil cases, this rule is more than courtroom legend . . . A defense verdict requires one finding - the defendant was not responsible . . . A plaintiff verdict requires a finding of liability and evaluation of damages, something not needed in a defense verdict. Thus, by sheer evidence evaluation, a jury has more work to do when rendering a verdict in favor of the plaintiff. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Defense quotes by Rob Gronkowski
#127. You have to give it to the Packers. They are a good team. They have a great offense and a great defense. #Quote by Rob Gronkowski
Defense quotes by Allen C. Guelzo
#128. This was, after all, an army whose cause was inextricably bound up with the defense of black enslavement. #Quote by Allen C. Guelzo
Defense quotes by Dave Barry
#129. During bomb drills, we students were told to crouch under our desks. Apparently the desks used in classrooms in the fifties were made of an exceptionally missile-resistant variety of wood. During the Cold War years I often wondered why it never occurred to our defense planners to protect the entire nation from nuclear attack by simply covering it, from sea to shining sea, with a huge Strategic Classroom Desk. #Quote by Dave Barry
Defense quotes by Helen Clark
#130. In the end, there will always be a fundamental difference of perspective between New Zealand and Australia on defense, whoever is in government. #Quote by Helen Clark
Defense quotes by Bret Easton Ellis
#131. The reassuring smile was now useless. I was plastic. Everything was veiled. Objectivity, facts, hard information
these were things only in the outline stage. There was nothing tying anything together yet, so the mind built up a defense, and the evidence was restructured, and that was what I tried to do on that morning
to restructure the evidence so it made sense
and that is what I failed at. #Quote by Bret Easton Ellis
Defense quotes by Oscar Robertson
#132. It's like all guys want to do is make a dunk, grab their shirt and yell out and scream - they could be down 30 points but that's what they do. Okay, so you made a dunk. Get back down the floor on defense! #Quote by Oscar Robertson
Defense quotes by Adam Smith
#133. Defense is superior to opulence. #Quote by Adam Smith
Defense quotes by Zheng Bijian

Defense quotes by Joseph Story
#135. It is important also to consider, that the surest means of avoiding war is to be prepared for it in peace. #Quote by Joseph Story
Defense quotes by Vanessa Place
#136. I'm an appellate criminal defense attorney. I'm used to losing. #Quote by Vanessa Place
Defense quotes by Leonard Peltier
#137. My continued incarceration has served some good purposes. My defense committee has served as a training ground for other organizers in their defense of freedom and justice. #Quote by Leonard Peltier
Defense quotes by David Lipsky
#138. This was the first thing I ever said, "All right, I'm gonna try to do the very best I can." Instead of doing this, "All right, I'll work at like three-quarters speed, and then I can always figure that if I just hadn't been a fuckup, the book coulda been really good." You know that defense system? You write the paper the night before, so if it doesn't get a great grade, you know that it could've been better.
And this worked
I worked as hard as I could on this. And in a weird way, you might think that would make me more nervous about whether people would like it. But there was this weird
you know like when you work out really well, there's this kind of tiredness that's real pleasant, and it's sort of placid. #Quote by David Lipsky
Defense quotes by Lee Child
#139. agent. My testimony would have been automatically suspect, even years later. I would have been a defense counsel's wet dream. As in, Special Agent, please tell us about the bribe you can't prove you didn't take. So I would have joined #Quote by Lee Child
Defense quotes by Michael Connelly
#140. talking about. I am trying to prepare a defense strategy here #Quote by Michael Connelly
Defense quotes by Nick Turse
#141. The thing that really struck me was how many firms that we think of as strictly civilian had ties to the Pentagon. Companies like Apple, Starbucks, Oakley the sunglasses manufacturer. Even Google, and a lot of big corporations like PepsiCo, Colgate-Palmolive, and Nestle, that you don't normally think of as defense contractors. #Quote by Nick Turse
Defense quotes by Matt Kibbe
#142. Social awkwardness is not a sin, in defense of liberty. #Quote by Matt Kibbe
Defense quotes by John Katzenbach
#143. Belief is an odd thing for a defense counsel, Tommy. It is not necessary to believe in your client to defend him. Some would say that it is easier to not truly have an opinion, that the maneuverings of the law are only clouded by the emotions of trust and honesty. But #Quote by John Katzenbach
Defense quotes by Ryan Zimmerman
#144. A Gold Glove would be one of the things I would really cherish. When I was younger, I was always smaller. I couldn't hit, so I had to work on defense. #Quote by Ryan Zimmerman
Defense quotes by Willie Mays
#145. Defense to me is the key to playing baseball. #Quote by Willie Mays

Defense quotes by Tanya Huff
#151. When they finally allowed the horses to slow to a walk, Vree dropped out of the saddle to stretch her legs.
*We're going to forget how to get anywhere on our own two feet. Gonna end up looking like fat-assed officers.*
Vree arched her back, rocked forward, then arched it again, working the stiffness out of her shoulders. *Giving the pounding it's taking, if my ass is getting fat, it's in self-defense.* #Quote by Tanya Huff
Defense quotes by Judd Apatow
#152. A lot of the turning points happen in high school and in college, and it defines a lot of how you see the world and how you decide to defend yourself from the world. Some people - their defense mechanism is, I'm really smart or I'm sexy or I'm the leader. And other people - they hide or they make jokes. #Quote by Judd Apatow
Defense quotes by Martha Manning
#153. In the psychological literature, depression is often seen as a defense against sadness. But I'll take sadness any day. There is no contest. Sadness carries identification. You know where it's been and you know where it's headed. Depression carries no papers. It enters your country unannounced and uninvited. Its origins are unknown, but its destination always dead-ends in you. #Quote by Martha Manning
Defense quotes by Marie Lu
#154. The only way to clamp down on my energy is to erase my emotions, and so I fold them each away, one by one. My sorrow turns to anger, then to ice-cold fury. My soul curls in one itself in defense. I am gone. I am truly gone.
I am not sorry. #Quote by Marie Lu
Defense quotes by Daniel Webster
#155. No man can suffer too much, and no man can fall too soon, if he suffer or if he fall in defense of the liberties and Constitution of his country. #Quote by Daniel Webster
Defense quotes by Debra Anastasia
#156. This was self-defense. You're unarmed. He wanted your gold. I'll call your lawyer." She put her hat on his head.
"What about the witness?" Beckett wheezed.
"There is no witness." Eve leaned down and placed a gentle kiss on Beckett's lips.
Our first fucking kiss. #Quote by Debra Anastasia
Defense quotes by Vincent Cheung
#157. God has not left us defenseless against the devil's strategies of deception. If Satan's weapon of attack is intellectual deception, then our defense and counterattack consist in truth. #Quote by Vincent Cheung
Defense quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#158. He placed his hands against the Jeep on either side of my head and leaned forward, forcing me to press back against the door. He leaned in even closer, his face inches from mine. I had no room to escape.
"Now," he breathed, and just his smell disturbed my thought processes, "what exactly are you worrying about?"
"Well, um, hitting a tree -" I gulped "- and dying. And then getting sick."
He fought back a smile. Then he bent his head down and touched his cold lips softly to the hollow at the base of my throat.
"Are you still worried now?" he murmured against my skin.
"Yes." I struggled to concentrate. "About hitting trees and getting sick."
His nose drew a line up the skin of my throat to the point of my chin. His cold breath tickled my skin.
"And now?" His lips whispered against my jaw.
"Trees," I gasped. "Motion sickness."
He lifted his face to kiss my eyelids. "Bella, you don't really think I would hit a tree, do you?"
"No, but I might." There was no confidence in my voice. He smelled an easy victory.
He kissed slowly down my cheek, stopping just at the corner of my mouth.
"Would I let a tree hurt you?" His lips barely brushed against my trembling lower lip.
"No," I breathed. I knew there was a second part to my brillant defense, but I couldn't quite call it back.
"You see," he said, his lips moving against mine. "There's nothing to be afraid of, is there?"
"No," I sighed, giving up.
Then he took #Quote by Stephenie Meyer

Defense quotes by Susanna Kearsley
#162. You're not messing about in Iain's garden, are you?" I felt irrationally guilty. "I just pulled a few weeds." "I warned her," Vivien said, in self-defense, "but she didn't listen." "Well," Geoff gave me a faintly pitying look, "what's done is done. We'll make sure you have a proper funeral, at any rate. #Quote by Susanna Kearsley
Defense quotes by Reza Aslan
#163. Should I act violently in defense of my religion, absolutely. #Quote by Reza Aslan
Defense quotes by Eric Hoffer
#164. It is perhaps true that the criminal who embraces a holy cause is more ready to risk his life and go to extremes in its defense than people who are awed by the sanctity of life and property. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Defense quotes by George W. Bush
#165. The best defense against terrorism is a strong offensive against terrorists. That work continues. #Quote by George W. Bush
Defense quotes by Douglas Rushkoff
#166. Marketers spend millions developing strategies to identify children's predilections and then capitalize on their vulnerabilities. Young people are fooled for a while, but then develop defense mechanisms, such as media-savvy attitudes or ironic dispositions. Then marketers research these defenses, develop new countermeasures, and on it goes. #Quote by Douglas Rushkoff
Defense quotes by Lynne Stewart
#167. I couldn't add my talent, which is prodigious, to a defense of someone even accused of hurting a child. #Quote by Lynne Stewart
Defense quotes by Adrian Wilson
#168. It's just a huge boost for us to have one extra playmaker on our defense. He makes so many impact plays and changes the game a lot. #Quote by Adrian Wilson
Defense quotes by Patrick Henry
#169. Have we the means of resisting disciplined armies, when our only defense, the militia, is put in the hands of Congress? Of what service would militia be to you when, most probably, you will not have a single musket in the state? For, as arms are to be provided by Congress, they may or may not provide them. #Quote by Patrick Henry
Defense quotes by Sue Grafton
#170. You know what they say about living well as the best revenge. I did well because it was the one defense I had. Escape has been the motivating force in my life. Getting away from him, getting away from her, putting that household behind me. The funny this is, I haven't moved an inch, and the harder I run, the faster I keep slipping back to them ... There are laws for everything except the harm families do. #Quote by Sue Grafton
Defense quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#171. Innocence is its own defense. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Defense quotes by Ang Swee Chai
#172. And the PRCS [Palestinian Red Crescent Society] had not lost just one hospital: thirteen clinics and nine hospitals all over Lebanon had been destroyed in this way. Only Gaza Hospital, for a reason I was to discover three years later, was still standing. At the height of the air raids, when the Palestinians found out that every single PRCS hospital and clinic was a bomb target, they put three Israeli soldiers captured in south Lebanon on the upper floors of Gaza Hospital, and radioed a message to the Israeli Army saying that any further military action on Gaza Hospital would result in Israeli lives being lost. That saved Gaza Hospital from further destruction. #Quote by Ang Swee Chai
Defense quotes by R.L. Martinez

Defense quotes by John Adams
#174. National defense is one of the cardinal duties of a statesman. #Quote by John Adams
Defense quotes by Emily Bazelon
#175. Somewhere along the way, the balance of power between the prosecution, the defense, and the judiciary shifted. We have to readjust it. The stakes are so high - the well-being of so many communities and the trajectories of so many lives. Public safety depends on our collective faith in fairness and our view of the law as legitimate. #Quote by Emily Bazelon
Defense quotes by Janet Evanovich
#176. I attributed the incidence to temporary insanity, and in my own defense, I'd like to say I haven't run over anyone since. #Quote by Janet Evanovich
Defense quotes by Robert C. Gay
#177. We are to give up all our sins, big or small, for the Father's reward of eternal life. We are to forget self-justifying stories, excuses, rationalizations, defense mechanisms, procrastinations, appearances, personal pride, judgmental thoughts, and doing things our way. We are to separate ourselves from all worldliness and take upon us the image of God in our countenances. #Quote by Robert C. Gay
Defense quotes by John Wesley
#178. In the hands of [God's] children, it is food for the hungry, drink for the thirsty, raiment for the naked. it gives to the traveler and the stranger where to lay his head. By it we may supply the place of a husband to the widow, and of a father to the fatherless. We may be a defense for the oppressed, a means of health to the sick, of ease to them that are in pain. It may be as eyes to the blind, as feet to the lame: yea, a lifter up from the gates of death! #Quote by John Wesley
Defense quotes by Rex Ryan
#179. I know we'll lead the league in defense. #Quote by Rex Ryan
Defense quotes by Randolph M. Nesse
#180. Long before there were effective treatments, physicians dispensed prognoses, hope, and, above all, meaning. When something terrible happens-and serious disease is always terrible-people want to know why. In a pantheistic world, the explanation was simple-one god had caused the problem, another could cure it. In the time since people have been trying to get along with only one God, explaining disease and evil has become more difficult. Generations of theologians have wrestled with the problem of theodicy-how can a good God allow such bad things to happen to good people?

Darwinian medicine can't offer a substitute for such explanations. It can't provide a universe in which events are part of a divine plan, much less one in which individual illness reflects individual sins. It can only show us why we are the way we are, why we are vulnerable to certain diseases. A Darwinian view of medicine simultaneously makes disease less and more meaningful. Diseases do not result from random or malevolent forces, they arise ultimately from past natural selection. Paradoxically, the same capacities that make us vulnerable to disease often confer benefits. The capacity for suffering is a useful defense. Autoimmune disease is a price of our remarkable ability to attack invaders. Cancer is the price of tissues that can repair themselves. Menopause may protect the interests of our genes in existing children. Even senescence and death are not random, but compromises struck by natural s #Quote by Randolph M. Nesse
Defense quotes by Jim Harrison
#181. That's my only defense against this world: to build a sentence out of it. #Quote by Jim Harrison
Defense quotes by G.H. Hardy
#182. What is the proper justification of a mathematician's life? My answers will be, for the most part, such as are expected from a mathematician: I think that it is worthwhile, that there is ample justification. But I should say at once that my defense of mathematics will be a defense of myself, and that my apology is bound to be to some extent egotistical. I should not think it worth while to apologize for my subject if I regarded myself as one of its failures. Some egotism of this sort is inevitable, and I do not feel that it really needs justification. Good work is no done by "humble" men. It is one of the first duties of a professor, for example, in any subject, to exaggerate a little both the importance of his subject and his own importance in it. A man who is always asking "Is what I do worth while?" and "Am I the right person to do it?" will always be ineffective himself and a discouragement to others. He must shut his eyes a little and think a little more of his subject and himself than they deserve. This is not too difficult: it is harder not to make his subject and himself ridiculous by shutting his eyes too tightly. #Quote by G.H. Hardy
Defense quotes by Jesus Apolinaris
#183. Do not underestimate your enemy's strategy for victory. Observe patiently in silence with the application of experience, knowledge, good judgment and strategize your defense to triumph over your enemies. #Quote by Jesus Apolinaris
Defense quotes by Ilona Andrews
#184. A dense wall of greenery bordered it, ... an impenetrable barrier of oaks, evergreen shrubs, blackberry that somehow resisted the frost, and thorns. In the defense department, the witches would make Sleeping Beauty's evil witch weep with jealousy. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Defense quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#185. And they want me to defend religion, and they want me to give them proofs. I just won't do it. It only confirms them in their skepticism. Because nothing true can be said a out God from a posture of defense. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Defense quotes by Christopher Moore
#186. A wall is a defense of a country that values inaction. But a wall imprisons the people of a country as much as it protects them. That's why Balthasar had us go this way. He wanted me to see the error in the Tao. One can't be free without action. #Quote by Christopher Moore
Defense quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#187. I will not debate with you Dark Elf. By the swords of the Noldor alone are your sunless woods defended. Your freedom to wander there wild you owe to my kin and but for them long since you would have laboured in thraldom in the pits of Angband. And here I am King and whether you will it or will it not my doom is law. This choice is given to you: abide here or to die here and so also for your son. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Defense quotes by Marcia Clark
#188. There is interest in a crime-based reality show. With my novels, we are now editing the second book in a series about a defense lawyer whose name is Samantha Brinkman. And I am reviewing speaking engagement opportunities. #Quote by Marcia Clark
Defense quotes by David Souter
#189. We hold that an employer is vicariously liable for actionable discrimination caused by a supervisor, but subject to an affirmative defense looking to the reasonableness of the employer's conduct as well as that of a plaintiff victim. #Quote by David Souter
Defense quotes by Israel Morrow
#190. One popular defense of the Founding Fathers says they were simply men of their time, flawed idealists for whom 'that was the culture then.' But in fact, they were not men of their time. The Founding Fathers were men of their color (white) of their status (wealthy) of their descent (European) of their time.
To say that the Founding Fathers were men of their time defines time according to them. It legitimizes their place at the top of the world--the origin of popular history--even if the leaders of other nations were more democratic and fair-handed. #Quote by Israel Morrow
Defense quotes by J.R. Rain
#191. Kingsley got up, and as he did so, he flashed me the goods. Whether he meant to or not, I don't know ... but holy sweet Jesus. Did I really just see that? My God, how did he walk around with that thing? Kingsley, defense attorney, werewolf - and now, apparently, pervert - sat next to me and gave no indication that he had just given me the mother of all peep shows. "I'm going to let you in on a little secret," he said, and knocked back the rest of his wine like it was booze-flavored Kool-Aide. "It's not a secret," I said. "And it ain't little." "Excuse me?"
