Modus Operandi quotes by Jon Stewart
#1. Fox opposes a Syria peace plan because its modus operandi is to foment dissent in the form of a relentless and irrational contrarianism to Barack Obama and all things Democratic, to advance its ultimate objective of creating a deliberately misinformed body politic whose fear, anger, mistrust, and discontent is the manna upon which it sustains its parasitic succubus-like existence. #Quote by Jon Stewart
Modus Operandi quotes by Paul Krugman
#2. There is no economic policy. That's really important to say. The general modus operandi of the Bushies is that they don't make policies to deal with problems. They use problems to justify things they wanted to do anyway. So there is no policy to deal with the lack of jobs. There really isn't even a policy to deal with terrorism. It's all about how can we spin what's happening out there to do what we want to do. #Quote by Paul Krugman
Modus Operandi quotes by Brad Thor
#3. There are many lay people and scholars alike, both with and without the Muslim community, who feel that the pure orthodox Islam of the fundamentalists could never survive outside the context of its seventh-century Arabian origins. Apply twenty-first-century science, logic, or humanistic reasoning to it and it falls apart.
They believe this is why Islam has always relied so heavily on the threat of death. Question Islam, malign Islam, or leave Islam and you will be killed. It is a totalitarian modus operandi that silences all dissent and examination, thereby protecting the faith from ever having to defend itself. #Quote by Brad Thor
Modus Operandi quotes by Haim Ginott
#4. When gentle persuasion [of children] falls on deaf ears, we resort to ridicule and rebuke. Then we return to threats and punishment. This is the modus operandi of a mutual frustration society. #Quote by Haim Ginott
Modus Operandi quotes by Stanley McChrystal
#5. Humans are great optimizers. We look at everything around us, whether a cow, a house, or a share portfolio, and ask ourselves how we can manage it to get the best return. Our modus operandi is to break the things we're managing down into its component parts and understand how each part functions and what inputs will yield the greatest outputs . . . [but] the more you optimize elements of a complex system of humans and nature for some specific goal, the more you diminish that system's resilience. A drive for efficient optimal state outcome has the effect of making the total system more vulnerable to shocks and disturbances. #Quote by Stanley McChrystal
Modus Operandi quotes by Thomas Browne
#6. In brief, where the Scripture is silent, the church is my text; where that speaks, 'tis but my comment; where there is a joint silence of both, I borrow not the rules of my religion from Rome or Geneva, but the dictates of my own reason. #Quote by Thomas Browne
Modus Operandi quotes by Tim Wu
#7. We've already seen the attention merchant's basic modus operandi: draw attention with apparently free stuff and then resell it. but a consequence of that model is a total dependence on gaining and holding attention. This means that under competition, the race will naturally run to the bottom; attention will almost invariably gravitate to the more garish, lurid, outrageous alternative, whatever stimulus may more likely engage what cognitive scientists call our 'automatic' attention as opposed to our 'controlled' attention, the kind we direct with intent. The race to a bottomless bottom, appealing to what one might call the audience's baser instincts, poses a fundamental, continual dilemma for the attention merchant-just how far will he go to get his harvest? If the history of attention capture teaches us anything, it is that the limits are often theoretical, and when real, rarely self-imposed. #Quote by Tim Wu
Modus Operandi quotes by David McCullough
#8. followed. . . . By merely observing with close attention how the winged tribes perform their feats, by carefully reflecting on what we have seen, and, above all, by striving correctly to understand the modus operandi of what we do see, we are sure not to wander far from the path, which leads to eventual success. #Quote by David McCullough
Modus Operandi quotes by Gregory A. Boyd
#9. In the words of Barbara Rossing and John Yoder, borrowing an image from the book of Revelation, the contrast between the "power over" kingdom of the world and the "power under" kingdom of God is "Lion power" versus "Lamb power." The kingdom of God advances by people lovingly placing themselves under others, in service to others, at cost to themselves. This "coming under" doesn't mean that followers of Jesus conform to other people's wishes, but it does mean that we always interact with others with their best interests in mind.

Following the example of Christ, and in stark contrast to the modus operandi of the world, we are to do "nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than [our]selves." We are to "look not to [our] own interests, but to the interests of others" (Phil. 2:3–4). We are to "not seek [our] own advantage, but that of the other" (1 Cor. 10:24, cf. 10:33). Following Jesus' example, we are to find honor in washing people's feet (John 13:14–15) - that is, in serving them in any way we can.

So too, in following our Master we are to seek to do good and free all who are "oppressed by the devil" (Acts 10:38) while we voluntarily bear others' burdens (Gal. 6:2). We are to "outdo one another in showing honor" (Rom. 12:10) and never be competitive with others (unless, of course, it's for fun) (Gal. 5:26). We are to "put up with the failings of the weak, and not please ourselves," always asking how we might "ple #Quote by Gregory A. Boyd
Modus Operandi quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#10. We must teach our people to exalt righteousness and uprightness as a national modus operandi #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Modus Operandi quotes by Joan Schenkar
#11. When Pat gave her 'criminal-hero' Tom Ripley a charmed and parentless life, a wealthy, socially poised Alter Ego (Dickie Greenleaf), and a guilt-free modus operandi (after he kills Dickie, Tom murders only when necessary), she was doing just what her fellow comic book artists were doing with their Superheroes: allowing her fictional character to finesse situations she herself could only approach in wish fulfillment. And when she reimagined her own psychological split in Ripley's character - endowing him with both her weakest traits (paralyzing self-consciousness and hero-worship) and her wildest dreams (murder and money) - she was turning the material of the 'comic book' upside down and making it into something very like a 'tragic book.' 'It is always so easy for me to see the world upside down,' Pat wrote in her diary– and everywhere else. #Quote by Joan Schenkar
Modus Operandi quotes by John Anthony West
#12. In my view, The Temple of Man is the most important work of scholarship of this century. R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz finally proves the existence of the legendary 'sacred science' of the Ancients and systematically demonstrates its modus operandi. It was this great science-based upon an intimate and exact knowledge of cosmic principles-that fused art, religion, science, and philosophy into one coherent whole and sustained Ancient Egypt for three thousand years. #Quote by John Anthony West
Modus Operandi quotes by Al Roker
#13. My old modus operandi was, if you're going to have a grilled cheese and bacon sandwich, don't have one, have two. If you're going to have vanilla wafers, you have the whole box. #Quote by Al Roker
Modus Operandi quotes by Richard Foreman
#14. Now, when I started my theater, the modus operandi was having the actors stare right into the audience. #Quote by Richard Foreman
Modus Operandi quotes by Dale Spender
#15. Sexual harassment is becoming the modus operandi of the new world (on-line) ... It is the means by which some males are conquering and claiming the new territory as their own. #Quote by Dale Spender
Modus Operandi quotes by John Scalzi
#16. Because it worked really well for some people," I said. "Let's not lie, Hart. It worked really well for us. For humans. And more specifically for the Colonial Union. A system of government, stable for centuries, predicated on killing the shit out of everyone else and taking their land. That's practically the modus operandi of every successful human civilization to date. No wonder some of us wanted to return to it, even at the risk of destroying the Colonial Union itself. Because if we got back, we'd be meaner than ever before. #Quote by John Scalzi
Modus Operandi quotes by Amie Kaufman
#17. But don't fall in love with me, Zila. I'll just break your heart."
"That does seem consistent with your romantic modus operandi." She pauses a moment before adding, "You are also too tall for me."
I blink at that. "Wait… you like girls?"
Zila shrugs, scanning the crowd. "Not tall ones. #Quote by Amie Kaufman
Modus Operandi quotes by D. V. Ager
#18. Though the theories of plate tectonics now provide us with a modus operandi, they still seem to me to be a periodic phenomenon. Nothing is world-wide, but everything is episodic. In other words, the history of anyone part of the earth, like the life of a soldier, consists of long periods of boredom and short periods of terror. #Quote by D. V. Ager
Modus Operandi quotes by Chuck Close
#19. You don't have to have a great art idea - just get to work and something will happen. So that's pretty much my modus operandi and pretty much my principal position, such as it is. #Quote by Chuck Close
Modus Operandi quotes by Joseph Finder
#20. What does that look like to you?" he said. "A forgery." He shrugged, snorted quietly. "That's right, Heller. We have teams of forgers at work creating phony documents just for you." His sarcasm was subtle. "Now do you see? Starting to recognize your brother's modus operandi? Steal a bunch of money, then, when you realize that you've messed with the wrong guys, do the cowardly thing and run? Wonder where he got that from." "Screw you." I no longer felt bad about making up that story about his cigars. "Oh, believe me, it's the truth. Maybe to Victor Heller's sons that's nothing more than loose change you find under your sofa cushions. But not to me. And certainly not to Allen Granger. #Quote by Joseph Finder
Modus Operandi quotes by Peter Menzel
#21. My modus operandi after working for a decade as a self-funding freelancer, was to spend as little money as possible to get the job done, even if it was on someone else's nickel. #Quote by Peter Menzel
Modus Operandi quotes by Josh Pais
#22. Sometimes it gets a little uncomfortable to not do everything. That was my modus operandi for many years, but I just feel like I want to do challenging roles. #Quote by Josh Pais
Modus Operandi quotes by Ogden Nash
#23. Passivity can be a provoking modus operandi;
Consider the Empire and Gandhi. #Quote by Ogden Nash
Modus Operandi quotes by H.L. Mencken
#24. People do not expect to find chastity in a whorehouse. Why, then, do they expect to find honesty and humanity in government, a congeries of institutions whose modus operandi consists of lying, cheating, stealing, and if need be, murdering those who resist? #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Modus Operandi quotes by John Lars Zwerenz
#25. ON THE MODUS OPERANDI OF OUR CURRENT PRESIDENT, DONALD J. TRUMP

"According to a new ABC/Washington Post poll, President Trump's disapproval rating has hit a new high."
The President's response to this news was ""I don't do it for the polls. Honestly - people won't necessarily agree with this - I do nothing for the polls," the president told reporters on Wednesday. "I do it to do what's right. I'm here for an extended period of time. I'm here for a period that's a very important period of time. And we are straightening out this country." - Both Quotes Taken From Aol News - August 31, 2018

In The United States, as in other Republics, the two main categories of Presidential motivation for their assigned tasks are #1: Self Interest in seeking to attain and to hold on to political power for their own sakes, regarding the welfare of This Republic to be of secondary importance. #2: Seeking to attain and to hold on to the power of that same office for the selfless sake of this Republic's welfare, irregardless of their personal interest, and in the best of cases going against their personal interests to do what is best for this Republic even if it means making profound and extreme personal sacrifices. Abraham Lincoln understood this last mentioned motivation and gave his life for it.

The primary information any political scientist needs to ascertain regarding the diagnosis of a particular President's modus operandi is to first take an insig #Quote by John Lars Zwerenz
Modus Operandi quotes by William Dean
#26. By normal standards, Jesus' modus operandi was virtually an atheistic modus operandi, so that he could live through the irony of atheism, first divesting himself of a standard theism, then undergoing an ironic reversal toward a new theism. #Quote by William Dean
Modus Operandi quotes by Virna DePaul
#27. A serial killer's modus operandi could evolve over time, but rarely would he change his signature, an act that often had nothing to do with the way the victim actually died but had more to do with fulfilling some kind of need the killer had. #Quote by Virna DePaul
Modus Operandi quotes by Chuck Close
#28. When you come up in the art world, whatevers in the air, the issues of the moment, end up becoming part of the working method or modus operandi of how you think about doing a painting. And I came up at a time when-actually painting was dead when I came up. Sculpture sort of ruled. #Quote by Chuck Close
Modus Operandi quotes by Masha Gessen
#29. There is a reason that Russian troops in both Moscow and Beslan acted in ways that maximized bloodshed; they actually aimed to maximize the fear and the horror. This is the classic modus operandi of terrorists, and in this sense it can certainly be said that Putin and the terrorists were acting in concert. #Quote by Masha Gessen
Modus Operandi quotes by Jacki Weaver
#30. Every director's so different. Everybody has their own modus operandi and I love getting to know different directors in the way they work. David O. Russell is very exciting to be with because he's got a mind like quicksilver. #Quote by Jacki Weaver
Modus Operandi quotes by Justin K. McFarlane Beau
#31. Sorry is the day, and full of lament, when the young have to guard themselves from being food for the old.

I am moved to bewilderment, when I glance my eyes upon a society that kills its young, and then pretends to mourn their modus operandi.

Worse still, are those who have no compassion for the legacy and lack of positive inheritance being left to us, the future.

We have to save our parents and their friends. They raised us,but do not trust us. They are too tired to enact change. The source of progress, and the wealth of the future is, us. #Quote by Justin K. McFarlane Beau
Modus Operandi quotes by Annie Lennox
#32. Ask yourself: Have you been kind today? Make kindness your daily modus operandi and change your world. #Quote by Annie Lennox
Modus Operandi quotes by Verghese Kurien
#33. As far as multinationals are concerned, money always was and always will be their only God. I once told the Chairman of Nestle during a meeting, 'I've been in this game for fifty years and I know your modus operandi well. Your problem is that in India you're running into people who know more about dairying than you will ever know. Your problem is that there is a Kurien here and you are unable to find out what his price is, so you're unable to buy him out, which is what you'd normally do. But you can't buy me out; you can't buy off Amul. Keep in mind that all your usual, unscrupulous procedures that bring you success everywhere else will not work here. #Quote by Verghese Kurien
Modus Operandi quotes by Chinua Achebe
#34. Nations enshrine mediocrity as their modus operandi, and create the fertile ground for the rise of tyrants and other base elements of the society, by silently assenting to the dismantling of systems of excellence because they do not immediately benefit one specific ethnic, racial, political, or special-interest group. That, in my humble opinion, is precisely where Nigeria finds itself today! #Quote by Chinua Achebe
Modus Operandi quotes by Steve Coogan
#35. Hacking into a victim of crime's phone is a sort of poetically elegant manifestation of a modus operandi the tabloids have. #Quote by Steve Coogan
Modus Operandi quotes by Gail Carriger
#36. It was not a very prepossessing accessory for all it's serviceability, being both outlandish in design and indifferent in shape. It was a drab slate gray color, with cream ruffle trim, and it had a shaft in the new ancient-Egyptian style that looked rather like an elongated pineapple. Despite it's many advanced attributes, Lady Maccon's most common application of the parasol was through brute force enacted directly upon the cranium of an opponent. It was a crude and perhaps undignified modus operandi to be certain but it had worked so well for her in the past that she was loathe to rely too heavily on any of the newfangled aspects of her parasol's character. #Quote by Gail Carriger
Modus Operandi quotes by James Morcan
#37. Bilderberg's modus operandi reinforced in his mind the complexity of the global hierarchy. He didn't know if Omega controlled the Bilderberg Group or vice versa, but the situation reminded him that no matter how much anyone thought they knew about the New World Order elite, there were always higher levels in the plethora of secret societies and shadow organizations that ruled the planet. #Quote by James Morcan
Modus Operandi quotes by Samael Aun Weor
#38. It's indispensable to fully understand the basis and modus operandi of the Law of Karma to orientate the ship of our life in a positive and exemplary way. #Quote by Samael Aun Weor
Modus Operandi quotes by Honore De Balzac
#39. The more he saw, the more he doubted. He watched men narrowly, and saw how, beneath the surface, courage was often rashness; and prudence, cowardice; generosity, a clever piece of calculation; justice, a wrong; delicacy, pusillanimity; honesty, a modus vivendi; and by some strange dispensation of fate, he must see that those who at heart were really honest, scrupulous, just, generous, prudent or brave were held cheaply by their fellow-men.
'What a cold-blooded jest!' said he to himself. 'It was not devised by a God.'
From that time forth he renounced a better world, and never uncovered himself when a Name was pronounced, and for him the carven saints in the churches became works of art #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Modus Operandi quotes by Leon Pinsker
#40. No previous civilization has been able to achieve it, nor can we see even in the remote distance, that day of the Messiah, when national barriers will no longer exist and all mankind will live in brotherhood and concord. Until then, the nations must narrow their aspirations to achieve a tolerable modus vivendi. #Quote by Leon Pinsker
Modus Operandi quotes by Aslaug Magnusdottir
#41. While my calendar with Moda Operandi often takes me to fashionable locales like Milan and Paris, I am thrilled when opportunities to visit new places present themselves. #Quote by Aslaug Magnusdottir
Modus Operandi quotes by Marvin Kalb
#42. If anything good is going to emerge out of this, it's going to be the result of an acceptable modus vivendi between Ukraine and Russia. The two of them will have to get together at some point. It is going to be a result that many people in the West will not like, because Russia, as the bigger power, is going to get the better of the deal. So, a lot of people will say, that's appeasement. That's this - that - it's reality. #Quote by Marvin Kalb
Modus Operandi quotes by David Foster Wallace
#43. Todd, trust math. As in Matics, Math E. First-order predicate logic. Never fail you. Quantities and their relation. Rates of change. The vital statistics of God or equivalent. When all else fails. When the boulder's slid all the way back to the bottom. When the headless are blaming. When you do not know your way about. You can fall back and regroup around math. Whose truth is deductive truth. Independent of sense or emotionality. The syllogism. The identity. Modus Tollens. Transitivity. Heaven's theme song. The night light on life's dark wall, late at night. Heaven's recipe book. The hydrogen spiral. The methane, ammonia, H2O. Nucleic acids. A and G, T and C. The creeping inevibatility. Caius is mortal. Math is not mortal. What it is is: listen: it's true. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Modus Operandi quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#44. Modus in rebus there must be an end of things. #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Modus Operandi quotes by Henrik Ibsen
#45. The truth is that there are two men in Ibsen - an idealist, exalted to the verge of sentimentality, and a critic, hard, inexorable, remorseless, to the verge of cynicism. What we call his "social philosophy" is a modus vivendi arrived at between them. Both agree in repudiating "marriage for love"; #Quote by Henrik Ibsen
Modus Operandi quotes by VIRGIL PROFEANU
#46. A master's (an artist's) Modus Vivendi is to guide his creative self on the path of generating ideas, in a synergistic work resonating with the client's needs and Universe inspiration. #Quote by VIRGIL PROFEANU
Modus Operandi quotes by Isidore Of Seville
#47. The name of medicine is thought to have been given from 'moderation', modus, that is, from a due proportion, which advises that things be done not to excess, but 'little by little', paulatim. For nature is pained by surfeit but rejoices in moderation. Whence also those who take drugs and antidotes constantly, or to the point of saturation, are sorely vexed, for every immoderation brings not health but danger. #Quote by Isidore Of Seville
Modus Operandi quotes by Albert Einstein
#48. The first and most important necessity is the creation of a modus vivendi with the Arab people. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Modus Operandi quotes by Mauricio Lasansky
#49. Dignity is not a symbol bestowed on man, nor does the word itself possess force. Man's dignity is a force and the only modus vivendi by which man and his history survive. When mid-twentieth century Germany did not let man live and die with this right, man became an animal. No matter how technologically advanced or sophisticated, when man negates this divine right, he not only becomes self-destructive, but castrates his history and poisons our future. This is what 'The Nazi Drawings' are about. #Quote by Mauricio Lasansky
Modus Operandi quotes by Plautus
#50. In everything the middle course is best: all things in excess bring trouble to men.
[Lat., Modus omnibus in rebus, soror, optimum est habitu;
Nimia omnia nimium exhibent negotium hominibus ex se.] #Quote by Plautus
Modus Operandi quotes by Aslaug Magnusdottir
#51. As I have written before, one of my favorite parts of my job as CEO of Moda Operandi is the opportunity I get to explore international fashion scenes to discover new talent, and then being able to introduce these designers to our community of fashion-savvy customers worldwide. #Quote by Aslaug Magnusdottir
Modus Operandi quotes by Karim Rashid
#52. My real desire is to see people live in the modus of our time, to participate in the contemporary world, to release themselves from nostalgia, antiquated traditions, old rituals, meaningless kitsch, and that we be conscious and sensorially attuned to this world in this moment that we are alive. #Quote by Karim Rashid
