Plainly Stated quotes by Stanley Kubrick
#1. The essence of dramatic form is to let an idea come over people without it being plainly stated. When you say something directly, it's simply not as potent as it is when you allow people to discover it for themselves. #Quote by Stanley Kubrick
Plainly Stated quotes by Anonymous
#2. 1. THE HOLY QUR'AN AND ITS DIVISIONS Al-Qur'an. The name Al-Qur'an, the proper name of the Sacred Book of the Muslims, occurs several times in the Book itself (2:185, etc.). The word Qur'an is an infinitive noun from the root qara'a meaning, primarily, he collected things together, and also, he read or recited; and the Book is so called both because it is a collection of the best religious teachings and because it is a Book that is or should be read; as a matter of fact, it is the most widely read book in the whole world. It is plainly stated to be a revelation from the Lord of the worlds (26:192), or a revelation from Allah, the Mighty, the Wise (39:1, etc.), and so on. It was sent down to the Prophet Muhammad (47:2), having been revealed to his heart through the Holy Spirit (26:193, 194), in the Arabic language (26:195; 43:3). The first revelation came to the Holy Prophet in the month of Ramadan (2:185), #Quote by Anonymous

Plainly Stated quotes by Curtis A. Chamberlain
#4. Plainly stated, these false teachers enjoy so much success because they tell people what they want to hear, whether it's the truth or not. People want their ears "tickled"
they want to hear things that make them feel good. They want everything they hear to be "self-affirming" and "non-threatening" to their self-esteem. #Quote by Curtis A. Chamberlain

Plainly Stated quotes by Lora Leigh
#6. I was just curious." She shoved her hands into her pockets and gave Noah what she hoped was a sweet smile. "Just tell me what he did and I'll leave. Are you going to fire him? Can I watch?"
"Fine." Rory didn't look happy, that was odd enough. He looked angry at her, and he was never angry with her. And his smile. It was tight. All teeth. When had he turned into a full-grown man on her? He wasn't a kid brother any longer. "He was staring at your ass! Now you deal with it."
He turned and slammed out of the office, leaving her to stare at him in shock before she turned to meet Noah's amused gaze.
"He was lying to me," she said.
He grinned. Noah was absolutely entranced. Once again, he had to ask, though, what had happened to the Sabella he had known six years before. The one who never chipped a nail, and would have never, under any circumstances, butted into a male/male confrontation.
"You have a fine ass," he stated, and knew she wasn't buying it.
Her eyes narrowed. "And you're not going to tell me what he was chewing your ass over?"
Noah had to chuckle. "It was more in the way of a warning."
He was treading a fine line. Nathan wasn't as dead as Noah might wish; he still had habits that had once been ingrained. One of those habits? Twirling that damned wrench as he tried to figure out a particular problem beneath the hood of a vehicle.
She sniffed at his response. "Piss him off too far and I'll convince him to finally fire you."

Plainly Stated quotes by Julie Kagawa
#7. Ladies and Felines," he stated grandly, grasping the doorknob, "Welcome to Tir Na Nog. Land of endless winter and shitloads of snow. #Quote by Julie Kagawa
Plainly Stated quotes by Various
#8. I heard it stated that, on one occasion, during one of Alastair's visits to his friend "Mr Lachlan," the famous divine requested the bard to compose a poem on the "Resurrection of Christ." To this he demurred and told Mr Lachlan in Gaelic that "he knew more about such matters himself, and should try his own hand #Quote by Various
Plainly Stated quotes by Mike Lofgren
#9. ...More to the point, do their representatives and senators in Washington deliberately prioritize the stated requirement of the Pentagon and CIA above the most basic need of their constituents? Yes, if those legislators have developed the unfortunate tendency to go into a trance every time someone utter the magic phrase "national security." In truth, it happen often enough, and many times of the course of my career I saw Congress respond to that occult incantation like iron filing drawn to a magnet. p 64 #Quote by Mike Lofgren
Plainly Stated quotes by Milton Rokeach
#10. On Christmas. "Santa Claus represents God on assistance," said Clyde.
"Santa Claus is a negative-idealed god, the pagan god of material worship," Leon stated. "Christmas means the rebirth, regeneration. Some people have Christmas every day. The Christmas tree stands up and either the wife trims it or they trim it together with righteous-idealed sexual intercourse. Or the husband prays to God through his Christmas tree and trims his bodily Christmas tree. Christ-mast; the mast of Christ, the upstanding penis - that's what it means to me."
"Santa Claus is a good symbolization for Christmas," said Joseph. "Department stores, shopping, the coming of the New Year. Christmas means better business in the stores. #Quote by Milton Rokeach
Plainly Stated quotes by Carl Karcher

Plainly Stated quotes by Bruce Hood
#12. Fourier's theorem has all the simplicity and yet more power than other familiar explanations in science. Stated simply, any complex pattern, whether in time or space, can be described as a series of overlapping sine waves of multiple frequencies and various amplitudes. #Quote by Bruce Hood
Plainly Stated quotes by Mark Twain
#13. The laws of Nature, that is to say the laws of God, plainly made every human being a law unto himself, we must steadfastly refuse to obey those laws, and we must as steadfastly stand by the conventions which ignore them, since the statutes furnish us peace, fairly good government, and stability, and therefore are better for us than the laws of God, which would soon plunge us into confusion and disorder and anarchy if we should adopt them. #Quote by Mark Twain
Plainly Stated quotes by William S. Burroughs
#14. Well, as you can plainly see, the possibilities are endless like meandering paths in a great big beautiful garden. #Quote by William S. Burroughs
Plainly Stated quotes by Herman Melville
#15. But by her still halting course and winding, woeful way, you plainly saw that this ship that so wept with spray, still remained without comfort. She was Rachel, weeping for her children, because they were not. #Quote by Herman Melville
Plainly Stated quotes by Colleen Houck
#16. What was I thinking? I thought him sitting across from me would make it easier. Stupid me! Now I have to stare right at the warrior archangel and try to stay focused. I closed my eyes for a minute. Come on, Kells. Focus. Focus. You can do this!
"Okay, Ren, there really is something that we need to discuss."
"Alright. Go ahead."
I blew out a breath. "You see, I can't…reciprocate your feelings. Or your, umm, affections."
He laughed. "What are you talking about?"
"Well, what I mean is, I-"
He leaned forward and spoke in a low voice, full of meaning. "Kelsey, I know you reciprocate my feelings. Don't pretend anymore that you don't have them."
When did he figure all this out? Maybe when you were kissing him like an idiot, Kells. I'd hoped that I'd fooled him, but he could see right through me. I decided to play dumb and pretend I didn't know what he was talking about.
I waved my hand in the air. "Okay! Yes! I admit that I'm attracted to you."
Who wouldn't be?
"But it won't work out," I finished. There, it was out.
Ren looked confused. "Why not?"
"Because I'm too attracted to you."
"I don't understand what you're saying. How can your being attracted to me be a problem? I would think that's a good thing."
"For normal people…it is," I stated.
"So I'm not normal?"
"No. Let me explain it this way. It's like this…a starving man would gladly eat a radish, right? In fact, a radish would be a feast if that's al #Quote by Colleen Houck
Plainly Stated quotes by Taylor Hackford
#17. It's very clearly stated in the film: You make your own choices, and what you're always fighting is ego. #Quote by Taylor Hackford
Plainly Stated quotes by Michael Landon, Jr.
#18. I think I was respectful to my father in that I only told the portions that he had already told. So, I never went outside of the things that he had already stated in his article because then I think it becomes unfair. #Quote by Michael Landon, Jr.
Plainly Stated quotes by Richard Hooker

Plainly Stated quotes by Janell Rhiannon
#20. Briseis blinked, shaking her head in disbelief. 'You have taken everything from me. My husband. My brothers. My father. You have given me no word of my mother. There is nowhere else for me to go.'
'I expect too much,' he stated.
'Their faces fade from my memory,' Briseis said, quietly. 'Without them, I have nothing. #Quote by Janell Rhiannon

Plainly Stated quotes by Linda S. Reeves
#22. When we wonder if we are known by our Savior and our Father in Heaven or how well They know us personally, we might remember the Savior's words to Oliver Cowdery: 'If you desire a further witness, cast your mind upon the night that you cried unto me in your heart, that you might know concerning the truth of these things.' Earlier the Savior stated to him, 'There is none else save God that knowest thy thoughts and the intents of thy heart.' The Savior reminded Oliver that He knew every detail of that pleading prayer - and remembered the exact time, the very night. #Quote by Linda S. Reeves
Plainly Stated quotes by Morris L. West
#23. I believe in saints as I believe in sanctity. I believe in miracles as I believe in God, who can suspend the laws of His own making. But I believe, too, that the hand of God writes plainly and simply, for all men of good will to read. I am doubtful of His presence in confusion and conflicting voices. #Quote by Morris L. West
Plainly Stated quotes by James Morcan
#24. the knowledge of all things is possible," as Leonardo da Vinci once stated. #Quote by James Morcan
Plainly Stated quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#25. And as I close this chaotic volume I open again the strange small book from which all Christianity came; and I am again haunted by a kind of confirmation. The tremendous figure which fills the Gospels towers in this respect, as in every other, above all the thinkers who ever thought themselves tall. His pathos was natural, almost casual. The Stoics, ancient and modern, were proud of concealing their tears. He never concealed His tears; He showed them plainly on His open face at any daily sight, such as the far sight of His native city. Yet He concealed something. Solemn supermen and imperial diplomatists are proud of restraining their anger. He never restrained His anger. He flung furniture down the front steps of the Temple, and asked men how they expected to escape the damnation of Hell. Yet He restrained something. I say it with reverence; there was in that shattering personality a thread that must be called shyness. There was something that He hid from all men when He went up a mountain to pray. There was something that He covered constantly by abrupt silence or impetuous isolation. There was some one thing that was too great for God to show us when He walked upon our earth; and I have sometimes fancied that it was His mirth. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Plainly Stated quotes by James Rollins
#26. Tesla once stated, instinct is something which transcends knowledge. "Anton, #Quote by James Rollins
Plainly Stated quotes by Noam Chomsky
#27. The corporations plainly want academic scholarship to create a web of mystification that will avoid any public awareness of the way in which power actually functions in the society, and the faculty has caught the message and they do it magnificently. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Plainly Stated quotes by Ernst Junger
#28. The padres set great store by addressing prayer to personal gods: 'Genuine prayer exists only in religions in which there is a God as a person and a shape and endowed with a will.'
That was stated by a famous Protestant. The anarch does not want to have anything to do with that conception. As for the One God: while he may be able to shape persons, he is not a person himself, and the he is already a patriarchal prejudice.
A neuter One is beyond our grasp, while man converses ten with the Many Gods on equal terms, whether as their inventor or as their discoverer. In any case, it is man who named the gods. This is not to be confused with a high level soliloquy. Divinity must, without a doubt, be inside us and recognized as being inside us; otherwise we would have no concept of gods. #Quote by Ernst Junger
Plainly Stated quotes by Henry Freeman
#29. Finally, the cold was a major factor - as stated previously, initially no one wanted to leave the warmth of the interior of the ship to sit in a boat, out on the dark ocean, in the freezing cold. Without a sense of urgency, who could blame them? Ironically, #Quote by Henry Freeman
Plainly Stated quotes by Judith C. Waller
#30. It is still evident that the problem of finances is an enormously important one. The lack of money to do the job and to compete successfully for audiences with elaborate and attractive commercial programs seems almost hopeless. As far back as 1936, Doctor [Levering] Tyson . . . stated at the joint meeting of the Council and the Institute for Education by Radio at Columbus: Unfortunately, there is not much chance to get money until there is some general understanding of, and agreement in, country-wide objectives to which local and regional objectives can be fitted, and until controversy over these objectives is eliminated so that a unified plan of procedure can be followed #Quote by Judith C. Waller
Plainly Stated quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#31. If a man's aspirations towards a righteous life are serious..if he earnestly and sincerely seeks a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from animal food, because, not to mention the excitement of the passions produced by such food, it is plainly immoral, as it requires an act contrary to moral feeling, i. e., killing - and is called forth only by greed. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Plainly Stated quotes by Paul Johnson
#32. This was all very well: Columbanus's success indicates the appeal of his mission. But his activities, for the first time, brought the nature of Celtic monasticism firmly to the attention of the Church authorities
to western bishops in general, and to the Bishop of Rome in particular. The Irish monks were not heretical. But they were plainly unorthodox. They did not look right, to begin with. They had the wrong tonsure. Rome, as was natural, had 'the tonsure of St Peter', that is, a shaven crown. Easterners had the tonsure of St Paul, totally shaven; and if they wished to take up an appointment in the West they had to wait until their rim grew before being invested. But the Celts looked like nothing on earth: they had their hair long at the back and, on the shaven front part, a half-circle of hair from one ear to the other, leaving a band across the forehead. #Quote by Paul Johnson
Plainly Stated quotes by William Penn
#33. Speak properly, and in as few words as you can, but always plainly; for the end of speech is not ostentation, but to be understood. #Quote by William Penn
Plainly Stated quotes by Brad Alan Lewis
#34. I felt okay for the first 45 seconds, and then my vision grew fussy. My lungs felt like deflated balloons. I would have sucked oxygen through my ears, if that were possible. I was experiencing oxygen debt, or perhaps better stated, oxygen death. #Quote by Brad Alan Lewis
Plainly Stated quotes by James Fenton
#35. The Mistake

With the mistake your life goes in reverse.
Now you can see exactly what you did
Wrong yesterday and wrong the day before
And each mistake leads back to something worse

And every nuance of your hypocrisy
Towards yourself, and every excuse
Stands solidly on the perspective lines
And there is perfect visibility.

What an enlightenment. The colonnade
Rolls past on either side. You needn't move.
The statues of your errors brush your sleeve.
You watch the tale turn back - and you're dismayed.

And this dismay at this, this big mistake
Is made worse by the sight of all those who
Knew all along where these mistakes would lead -
Those frozen friends who watched the crisis break.

Why didn't they say? Oh, but they did indeed -
Said with a murmur when the time was wrong
Or by a mild refusal to assent
Or told you plainly but you would not heed.

Yes, you can hear them now. It hurts. It's worse
Than any sneer from any enemy.
Take this dismay. Lay claim to this mistake.
Look straight along the lines of this reverse. #Quote by James Fenton
Plainly Stated quotes by Mark Starr
#36. As stated before, hypothyroidism may cause premature or delayed puberty. The majority of normal and hypothyroid females begin their cycle at ages 12 or 13. However, a growing number of those with hypothyroidism start their cycle years earlier or begin their periods at age 15 or later. Premature or delayed puberty in males is also becoming more common. #Quote by Mark Starr
Plainly Stated quotes by Lysander Spooner
#37. If the jury have no right to judge of the justice of a law of the government, they plainly can do nothing to protect the people against the oppressions of the government; for there are no oppressions which the government may not authorize by law. #Quote by Lysander Spooner

#38. The first time I met you, you told me you grew up here, I'd call you a liar," Tate informed me.
I tipped my head to the side and asked, "Really?"
"High-class," he replied.
"You looked high-class," he semi-repeated.
"I'm not," I stated.
"No, Ace, you're not. You're a different kind of class."
"Farmer class."
"Pure class. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Plainly Stated quotes by John Hagee
#39. If you live your life and don't confess your sins to God Almighty through the authority of Christ and His blood, I'm going to say this very plainly, you're going straight to hell with a nonstop ticket. #Quote by John Hagee

#40. The ending is immense. Tell it plainly". #Quote by Philip Roth
Plainly Stated quotes by Khalil Gibran

Plainly Stated quotes by David Small

Plainly Stated quotes by Kristen Ashley
#45. They're kids Apollo. Young kids. And they don't need to know their father has a bed partner."
"I won't exactly be sharing our play second for second at the breakfast table, Madeleine," he stated, his voice turning cold . "But to share your bed with a woman you care about is not something to be ashamed of."
"No, of course not, but - "
"And I'll not communicate that by hiding who you are to me."
That was nice, so nice.
But that didn't mean he wasn't moving too fast.
"That's sweet, honey, but - "
"And I'll not have it communicated to my children ... in any way ... that the act of love between two agreeable adults is something to hide because it's shameful. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Plainly Stated quotes by Jeaniene Frost
#46. Can we move this along?" a bored voice stated. "I have places to be and people to shag."
"Ian, I'm not going to hug you," I stated as I approached him. "I know you like this better."
With that, I slapped him hard enough to rock his head to the side. When he'd straightened, he flashed me a wicked grin.
"Finally, you give me what I want. Knew you loved me, Reaper. #Quote by Jeaniene Frost

#47. And so our mothers and grandmothers have, more often than not anonymously, handed on the creative spark, the seed of the flower they themselves never hoped to see - or like a sealed letter they could not plainly read. #Quote by Alice Walker
