Principles quotes by Charles Simic
#1. I'm not a stickler for truth. To me, lying in poetry is much more fun. I'm against lying in life, in principle, in any other activity except poetry. #Quote by Charles Simic
Principles quotes by Injap Sia
#2. Whatever achievements and successes I've had didn't happen overnight. It is all a product of guidance, hard work, careful planning, and intense, passionate execution over many years. (p. 69) #Quote by Injap Sia
Principles quotes by Arthur Koestler
#3. It was Owen who defined 'homologous organs' as 'the same organ in different animals under every variety of form and function'. While he tirelessly demonstrated the multitude of such organs in the animal kingdom, he attributed them to the parsimony of the divine Designer-just as Kepler had attributed his planetary laws to the ingenuity of the divine Mathematician.

But whatever the beliefs of these men, the concept of homology came to stay, and became a cornerstone of modern evolutionary theory. Animals and plants are made out of homologous organelles like the mitochondria, homologous organs like gills and lungs, homologous limbs such as arms and wings. They are the stable holons in the evolutionary flux. The phenomena of homology implied in fact the hierarchic principle in phylogeny as well as in ontogeny. But the point was never made explicit, and the principles of hierarchic order hardly received a cursory glance. This may be why the inherent contradictions of the orthodox theory could pass so long unnoticed. #Quote by Arthur Koestler
Principles quotes by Alan E. Johnson
#4. During the nineteenth, twentieth, and early twenty-first centuries, certain politically active religious movements sought to have the United States declared - officially, if possible, but at least unofficially - a "Christian nation." This was an attempt to reverse the church-state separation principles and achievements of such great Founders as Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. Roger Williams, who was more religiously devout than just about anyone living in later centuries, opposed all attempts to call a particular nation "Christian," just as he opposed the terms "Christendom" and "Christian world." His arguments included a profound analysis of the importance of separation of church and state as well as a deep religious understanding of what Christianity is. #Quote by Alan E. Johnson
Principles quotes by Epictetus
#5. Is this all the habit you acquired when you studied philosophy, to look to others and to hope for nothing from yourself and your own acts? Lament therefore and mourn, and when you eat be fearful that you will have nothing to eat to-morrow. Tremble for your wretched slaves, lest they should steal, or run away, or die. Live in this spirit, and never cease to live so, you who never came near philosophy, except in name, and disgraced its principles so far as in you lies, by showing them to be useless and unprofitable to those who take them up. #Quote by Epictetus
Principles quotes by Joseph Addison
#6. We find that Good and Evil happen alike to all Men on this Side of the Grave; and as the principle Design of Tragedy is to raise Commiseration and Terror in the Minds of the Audience, we shall defeat this great End, if we always make Virtue and Innocence happy and successful. #Quote by Joseph Addison
Principles quotes by Spencer W. Kimball
#7. Modern scientific findings harmonize with revelation through the ages. No conflict exists between the gospel and any truth ... All true principles are a part of the gospel of Jesus Christ. There is no principle that we need to fear. #Quote by Spencer W. Kimball
Principles quotes by Caroline Gordon
#8. Passion, once unleashed, has a way of unleashing other passions
a principle adhered to as firmly by the police force of any large modern city as by the Greek tragedians. #Quote by Caroline Gordon
Principles quotes by Forrest Curran
#9. Whether between man and women, man and man, or woman and woman; look not towards any system that binds society created by man for guidance, but be guided by the principles of love. Love is the only law that commands this universe, and is the only language that is understood universally. #Quote by Forrest Curran
Principles quotes by Edgar Bronfman, Sr.
#10. The principles governing Western democracies, of which Israel rightly considers itself a part, are based on the assurance that everyone has a vote, but also that the minority needs to yield to the wishes of the majority. #Quote by Edgar Bronfman, Sr.
Principles quotes by Blaise Pascal
#11. The heart has its order, the mind has its own, which uses principles and demonstrations. The heart has a different one. We do not prove that we ought to be loved by setting out in order the causes of love; that would be absurd. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Principles quotes by Ted Cruz
#12. I think the working men and women are getting hammered right now. They want someone they can trust to stand with them. And part of the reason so many conservatives are uniting behind our campaign is, I'm the only one who led the battle against amnesty, has led the battle to secure the borders, has led the battle for the working men and women of this country. #Quote by Ted Cruz
Principles quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#13. When you rely on the principles of truth, they take you far. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Principles quotes by Sri Aurobindo
#14. The first principle of true teaching is that nothing can be taught. #Quote by Sri Aurobindo
Principles quotes by Neal A. Maxwell
#15. Our goals should stretch us bit by bit. So often when we think we have encountered a ceiling, it is really a psychological or experimental barrier that we have built ourselves. We built it and we can remove it. Just as correct principles, when applied, carry their own witness that they are true, so do correct personal improvement programs. But we must not expect personal improvement without pain or some 'remodeling.' We can't expect to have the thrills of revealed religion without the theology. We cannot expect to have the soul stretching without Christian service. #Quote by Neal A. Maxwell
Principles quotes by Nirmala Srivastava
#16. Real democracy is only possible when people truly imbibe democratic principles and respect ethical values above everything else. #Quote by Nirmala Srivastava
Principles quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#17. Questioning our government's actions does not violate the principles of liberty, equality, and freedom of speech; it exercises them, and by exercise we grow stronger. I have read enough of Thomas Jefferson to feel sure #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Principles quotes by Mark Pellegrino
#18. For me, teaching helps to reaffirm the right principles and values of acting. It helps me focus on the good stuff that can be easy to lose sight of because the business is so result-oriented. #Quote by Mark Pellegrino
Principles quotes by Roger Cotes
#19. Those who assume hypotheses as first principles of their speculations ... may indeed form an ingenious romance, but a romance it will still be. #Quote by Roger Cotes
Principles quotes by Peter Rachleff
#20. Divide and Conquer. As long as some people have commanded the work of others, this has been management's basic principle. #Quote by Peter Rachleff
Principles quotes by John Templeton
#21. High ethics and religious principles form the basis for success and happiness in every area of life. #Quote by John Templeton
Principles quotes by Mary Baker Eddy
#22. The rich in spirit help the poor in one grand brotherhood, all having the same Principle, or Father; and blessed is that man who seeth his brother's need and supplieth it, seeking his own in another's good. #Quote by Mary Baker Eddy
Principles quotes by Victor Hugo
#23. Go on philosophers
teach, enlighten, kindle, think aloud, speak up, run joyfully toward broad daylight, fraternize in the public squares, announce the glad tidings, lavish your alphabets, proclaim human rights, sing your Marseillaises, sow enthusiasms, tear off green branches from the oak trees. Make thought a whirlwind. This multitude can be sublimated. Let us learn to avail ourselves of this vast conflagration of principles and virtues, which occasionally sparkles, bursts, and shudders. These bare feet, these naked arms, these rags, these shades of ignorance, depths of despair, the gloom can be used for the conquest of the ideal. Look through the medium of the people, and you will discern the truth. This lowly sand that you trample underfoot, if you throw it into a furnace and let it melt and seethe, will become sparkling crystal; and thanks to such as this a Galileo and a Newton will discover the stars. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Principles quotes by Katherine Mansfield
#24. I am poor - obscure - just eighteen years of age - with a rapacious appetite for everything and principles as light as my purse. #Quote by Katherine Mansfield
Principles quotes by Helen McCloy
#25. 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
Principles quotes by David Green
#26. It is by God's grace and provision that Hobby Lobby has endured. Therefore, we seek to honor God by operating the company in a manner consistent with biblical principles. #Quote by David Green
Principles quotes by Bidemi Mark-Mordi
#27. Your success is determined by the principles upon which you live your life. #Quote by Bidemi Mark-Mordi
Principles quotes by Fakeer Ishavardas
#28. Like all fancies, fancied gods too do not last. All a 'One' is - this the Ultimate Reality does. Get 'It'. Before you breathe your last. #Quote by Fakeer Ishavardas
Principles quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#29. Uplifting God's Kingdom on earth should be our life's mandate as believers #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Principles quotes by Barack Obama
#30. We live in a culture that discourages empathy. A culture that too often tells us our principle goal in life is to be rich, thin, young, famous, safe, and entertained. #Quote by Barack Obama
Principles quotes by James Madison
#31. Bills of attainder, ex-post facto laws and laws impairing the obligation of contracts are contrary to the first principles of the social compact, and to every principle of sound legislation. #Quote by James Madison
Principles quotes by Stan Musial
#32. The first principle of contract negotiations is don't remind them of what you did in the past - tell them what you're going to do in the future. #Quote by Stan Musial
Principles quotes by Dallin H. Oaks
#33. As a General Authority, it is my responsibility to preach general principles. When I do, I don't try to define all the exceptions... I only teach the general rules. Whether an exception applies to you is your responsibility. You must work out individually between you and the Lord. #Quote by Dallin H. Oaks
Principles quotes by Carol P. Christ
#34. We need to build a new cooperative social order out beyond the principles of hierarchy, rule out competitiveness. Starting in the grass roots local units of human society where psychosocial polarization first began, we must create a living pattern of mutuality between men and women, between parents and children, among people in their social, economic, and political relationships and between mankind and the organic harmonies of nature. #Quote by Carol P. Christ
Principles quotes by Jeb Bush
#35. I don't believe you outsource your convictions and principles to people. #Quote by Jeb Bush
Principles quotes by Susan Powter
#36. There's a couple of universal principles in life. One is, don't ever open a restaurant. One out of every two fails. #Quote by Susan Powter
Principles quotes by Shashi Tharoor
#37. The principles he stood for and the way in which he asserted them were always easier to admire than to follow. #Quote by Shashi Tharoor
Principles quotes by Jean-Christophe Valtat
#38. When in doubt, do what they do in books, was one of Gabriel's secret mottos and - that rarest of things - a principle that he actually lived by. #Quote by Jean-Christophe Valtat
Principles quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#39. Life is given for increase and multiplication of the glory of God #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Principles quotes by Jennifer Donnelly
#40. Had you but seen it, I promise you, your high-minded principles would have melted like candle wax. Never would you have wished such beauty away. #Quote by Jennifer Donnelly
Principles quotes by James Otis
#41. And I take this opportunity to declare, that ... I will to my dying day oppose, with all the powers and faculties God has given me, all such instruments of slavery on the one hand, and villainy on the other, as this writ of assistance is. It appears to me ... the worst instrument of arbitrary power, the most destructive of English liberty, and the fundamental principles of the constitution, that ever was found in an English law-book. #Quote by James Otis
Principles quotes by Wm. Paul Young
#42. But you gotta admit, rules and principles are simpler than relationships. #Quote by Wm. Paul Young
Principles quotes by Bryan Kest
#43. There are certain yoga laws and principles that are, shall we say, less tangible than others. For example, the law of karma. Science has proven what goes up must come down, but that's about as far as it's gone. To believe that for every action, word, and thought, there is an equal consequence takes something more intuitive, more personal; it's more metaphysical. #Quote by Bryan Kest
Principles quotes by Lemony Snicket
#44. The scientific principles of the convergence and refraction of light are very confusing, and quite frankly I can't make head or tail of them, even when my friend Dr. Lorenz explains them to me. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Principles quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#45. I have never claimed to live by any set of principles," Warner says to me. "I've never claimed to be right, or good, or even justified in my actions. I have been forced to do terrible things in my life, love, and I am seeking neither your forgiveness nor your approval. Because I do not have the luxury of philosophizing over scruples when I'm forced to act on basic instinct every day. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Principles quotes by Thomas Reid
#46. If there are certain principles, as I think there are, which the' constitution of our nature leads us to believe, and which we are under a necessity to take for granted in the common concerns of life,' without being able to give a reason for them; these are what we call the principles of common sense; and what is manifestly contrary to them, is what we call absurd. #Quote by Thomas Reid
Principles quotes by Ayn Rand
#47. There can be no compromise on moral principles. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Principles quotes by Gordon S. Wood
#48. Although he trusted the good sense of the people in the long run, he believed that they could easily be misled by demagogues. He was a realist who had no illusions about human nature. "The motives which predominate most human affairs," he said, "are self-love and self-interest." The common people, like the common soldiers in his army, could not be expected to be "influenced by any other principles than those of interest. #Quote by Gordon S. Wood
Principles quotes by Guy De Maupassant
#49. She was, in fact, one of those people of exalted principles; one of those opinionated puritans, of which England produces so many; one of those good and insupportable old maids who haunt the tables d'hôte of every hotel in Europe, who spoil Italy, poison Switzerland, render the charming cities of the Mediterranean uninhabitable, carry everywhere their fantastic manias, their manners of petrified vestals, their indescribable toilets and a certain odor of india-rubber which makes one believe that at night they are slipped into a rubber casing. #Quote by Guy De Maupassant
Principles quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#50. Their usual mistaken premise is that they affirm some consensus among people, at least among tame peoples, concerning certain moral principles, and then conclude that these principles must be unconditionally binding also for you and me-or conversely, they see that among different peoples moral valuations are necessarily different and infer from this that no morality is binding-both of which are equally childish. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Principles quotes by Kevin McCarthy
#51. As conservatives, we know our principles, and we also know the best ideas do not always come from Washington. #Quote by Kevin McCarthy
Principles quotes by Ada Lovelace
#52. The method of differences is, in fact, a method of additions; and as it includes within its means a larger number of results attainable by addition simply, than any other mathematical principle, it was very appropriately selected as the basis on which to construct an Adding Machine, so as to give to the powers of such a machine the widest possible range. #Quote by Ada Lovelace
Principles quotes by Alison Charlotte Primrose
#53. The Great Pyramid was a fractal resonator for the entire Earth. It is designed according to the proportions of the cosmic temple, the natural pattern that blends the two fundamental principles of creation. The pyramid has golden ratio, pi, the base of natural logarithms, the precise length of the year and the dimensions of the Earth built into its geometry. It demonstrates.... As John Michell has pointed out in his wonderful little book, City of Revelation, 'Above all, the Great Pyramid is a monument to the art of 'squaring the circle'. #Quote by Alison Charlotte Primrose
Principles quotes by Nelson Mandela
#54. He knew when to compromise. Yet he never compromised his principles. He was a militant. Yet a militant who knew how to plan, assess concrete situations and emerge with rational solutions to problems. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
Principles quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#55. Slavery is founded in the selfishness of man's nature, opposition to it in his love of justice. These principles are an eternal antagonism, and when brought into collision so fiercely as slavery extension brings them, shocks and throes and convulsions must ceaselessly follow. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Principles quotes by Anthony Giddens
#56. To live in the universe of high modernity is to live in an environment of chance and risk, the ineveitable concomitants of a system geared to the domination of nature and the reflexive making of history. Fate and destiny have no formal part to play in such a system, which operates (as a matter of principle) via what I shall call open human control of the natural and social worlds. #Quote by Anthony Giddens
Principles quotes by Edgar Cayce
#57. Through Russia, comes the hope of the world. Not in respect to what is sometimes termed Communism or Bolshevism
no! But freedom
freedom! That each man will live for his fellow man. The principle has been born there. It will take years for it to be crystallized; yet out of Russia comes again the hope of the world, #Quote by Edgar Cayce
Principles quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#58. If principle is good for anything, it is worth living up to. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Principles quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#59. I have mastered the principles of several religions. They have all shocked me by the violence which I should have to do to my reason to accept the dogmas of any one of them. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Principles quotes by Will Durant
#60. All forms of governments destroy themselves, by carrying their basic principles to excess. Democracies become too free in politics, in economics, in morals – even in literature and art, until at last even the dogs in our homes, rise up on their hind legs and demand their rights. Disorder grows to such a point that society will then abandon all its liberty to anyone who can restore order. #Quote by Will Durant
Principles quotes by Pierre Vimont
#61. Foreign policy is about trying to project the European model, its values, its principles, to the outside world. But at the moment, the European model is not as fascinating and as attractive as it may have been a few years ago. We have to be aware of this and take it into account when we try to promote our European system. #Quote by Pierre Vimont
Principles quotes by George Lakoff
#62. 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
Principles quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#63. The goal of gospel teaching ... is not to 'pour information' into the minds of class members ... The aim is to inspire the individual to think about, feel about, and then do something about living gospel principles. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Principles quotes by Jaachynma N.E. Agu
#64. A virtuous mother sows and sows seeds of greatness with great life in mind. #Quote by Jaachynma N.E. Agu
Principles quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#65. We must be devoted to sound principles in word and deed: principle above party, principle above pocketbook, principle above popularity. #Quote by Ezra Taft Benson
Principles quotes by James D. Watson
#66. Today, the theory of evolution is an accepted fact for everyone but a fundamentalist minority, whose objections are based not on reasoning but on doctrinaire adherence to religious principles. #Quote by James D. Watson
Principles quotes by John Quincy Adams
#67. Slavery is the great and foul stain upon the North American Union. #Quote by John Quincy Adams
Principles quotes by Thomas Metzinger
#68. As a first-order approximation, I would say that phenomenality is "availability for introspective attention": Consciousness is a property of all those mental contents to which you can in principle direct your attention. #Quote by Thomas Metzinger
Principles quotes by George Strait
#70. Life is not the breaths you take but the moments that take your breath away. #Quote by George Strait
Principles quotes by Charles Koch
#71. The way - the principle way that human beings had gotten out of extreme poverty is free trade. #Quote by Charles Koch
Principles quotes by Li Bingbing
#72. By sticking to my principles and what I firmly believe in - I always have my own attitude towards everything in life. I wish to create trends rather than follow them. My daily routine at the moment is really just a combination of work and family. #Quote by Li Bingbing
Principles quotes by Beth Mikell
#73. He cupped my face between his hands. "Is it because Mac's good looking to a fault, damned bastard or because I'm a moron, and read the signals wrong?" He steamrolled ahead before I could respond. "I get it, I'm the beast of jackass past and present, but I'm sure I didn't read you wrong, Heather. Fuck ... " Ry closed his eyes in pain.
Oh no, he's doubting himself and me all because I didn't follow my self-guided principles of right and wrong. "Kiss me," I whispered. #Quote by Beth Mikell
Principles quotes by Charles De Lint
#74. Living on the street as a kid changed the way I looked at everything. It was a different time and while it had its dangers, it was nothing like it would be today. It was the Summer of Love and there was a real sense of community among us. We were hippies who looked out for each other instead of trying to rip each other off. We only had to watch out for the police who liked to roust us just on general principles, and the kids who came in from the suburbs to do a little hippie-bashing. #Quote by Charles De Lint
Principles quotes by Emily Greene Balch
#75. Those who are rooted in the depths that are eternal and unchangeable and who rely on unshakeable principles, face change full of courage, courage based on faith. #Quote by Emily Greene Balch
Principles quotes by E.J. Dionne Jr.
#76. At the heart of my argument is the view that religious faith, far from being inevitably on the side of the status quo, should on principle hold this world to higher standards. #Quote by E.J. Dionne Jr.
Principles quotes by Freya North
#77. It's chemical, fancying him is purely chemical. It's intoxicating - the frisson, the attraction - it's intoxicating because it's purely chemical. But you'll just have to remember the wedding ring - divorcees don't wear wedding rings. This guy has his own Vita at home. You're his potential Suzie. Is that who you want to be? Do you want the next man in your life to have Tim's principles? #Quote by Freya North
Principles quotes by Thomas Sowell
#78. The principles applied in economic processes are general social principles. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Principles quotes by Louis L'Amour
#79. He was realizing how cheap are the principles for which we do not have to fight, how easy it is to establish codes when all the while our freedom to talk had been fought and bled for by others. #Quote by Louis L'Amour
Principles quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#80. As soon as we surrender the principle that the state should not interfere in any questions touching on the individuals mode of life, we end by regulating and restricting the latter down to the smallest details. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Principles quotes by Epictetus
#81. How long are you going to wait before you demand the best for yourself and in no instance bypass the discriminations of reason? You have been given the principles that you ought to endorse, and you have endorsed them. What kind of teacher, then, are you still waiting for in order to refer your self-improvement to him? You are no longer a boy, but a full-grown man. If you are careless and lazy now and keep putting things off and always deferring the day after which you will attend to yourself, you will not notice that you are making no progress, but you will live and die as someone quite ordinary.
From now on, then, resolve to live as a grown-up who is making progress, and make whatever you think best a law that you never set aside. And whenever you encounter anything that is difficult or pleasurable, or highly or lowly regarded, remember that the contest is now: you are at the Olympic Games, you cannot wait any longer, and that your progress is wrecked or preserved by a single day and a single event. That is how Socrates fulfilled himself by attending to nothing except reason in everything he encountered. And you, although you are not yet a Socrates, should live as someone who at least wants to be a Socrates. #Quote by Epictetus
Principles quotes by Sameh Elsayed
#82. Though my principles are not many, yet I am very loyal to every one of them. #Quote by Sameh Elsayed
Principles quotes by Tom DeLay
#83. For all its faults, it is partisanship - based on core principles- that clarifies our debates, that prevents one party from straying too far from the mainstream and that constantly refreshes our politics with new ideas and new leaders. #Quote by Tom DeLay
Principles quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#84. To be given to the study of the scriptures is to discover more principles #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Principles quotes by Salvatore J. Cordileone
#85. Respect for the dignity of the human person is the foundational principle of any just society. From a Catholic perspective, it also forms the foundation of all of our Church's social teachings. #Quote by Salvatore J. Cordileone
Principles quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#86. [O]n general principles it is best that I should not leave the country. Scotland Yard feels lonely without me, and it causes an unhealthy excitement among the criminal classes. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Principles quotes by Mark E. Petersen
#87. In the first section of the Doctrine and Covenants we read that 'the Lord shall come to recompense unto every man according to his work, and measure to every man according to the measure which he has measured to his fellow man.' (D&C 1:10.) This principle, showing the manner by which God will judge us, puts a new light upon the commandment to love our neighbors as ourselves, and should persuade us to take that law seriously. #Quote by Mark E. Petersen
Principles quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#88. True patriotism springs from a belief in the dignity of the individual, freedom and equality not only for Americans but for all people on earth, universal brotherhood and good will, and a constant and earnest striving toward the principles and ideals on which this country was founded. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Principles quotes by G.M.W. Wemyss
#89. There are two primary strains in the Conservative Party: grocers, and grandees. … By 'grandees' and 'grocers', I am not referring to social class or any of that; nor do I refer to the Worshipful Company of Grocers, all cloves and camels. I refer rather to two fundamental positions within the Conservative Party, regardless of one's antecedents. … A grandee Conservative sees the country as a village: a village of which he and his party, when in government, act the Squire. As the Squire, the grandee moves jovially amongst his tenants in their tied cottages, dispensing largesse and reproof…. There are two problems with this model. The first is that HMG is not the Squire and the subjects of the Crown are not the smocked tenantry of the government of the day. The second is that these principles – or instincts, as one can hardly call them principles – however different they may be to the fiercely held maxims of Labour old and new, lead in the end to the same statist solutions as those the Left proposes, and to accepting and 'managing' statism when a Conservative government succeeds a Labour one. It is the grocers who will always and rightly attempt to roll back the State and its reach in favour of liberty. #Quote by G.M.W. Wemyss
Principles quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#90. It's all right, then. He's not going to act up to his principles. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Principles quotes by Edgar Villanueva
#91. Colonial, white supremacist organizational practices seem inevitable because they were so universally adopted over the next centuries, and they still govern the great majority of our institutions, but they were design choices. This means that other choices are available, even when they seem far-fetched. We know what spices and organizations look like, feel like, and function like when they are inspired by the colonizers' principles of separation, competition and exploitation. How would they be different if they were based on principles like integration and interdependence, reciprocity and relationship? #Quote by Edgar Villanueva
Principles quotes by Scott Klusendorf
#92. Pro-life advocates don't oppose abortion because they find it distasteful; they oppose it because it violates rational moral principles. The negative emotional response follows from the moral wrongness of the act. #Quote by Scott Klusendorf
Principles quotes by Val Kovalin
#93. The only 'ironclad rules' in writing fiction are the laws of physics and the principles of grammar, and even those can be bent. #Quote by Val Kovalin
Principles quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#94. I've never played,' said von Igelfeld.
'Nor I,' said Unterholzer. 'Chess, yes. Tennis no.'
'But that's no reason not to play,' von Igelfeld added quickly. 'Tennis, like any activity, can be mastered if one knows the principles behind it. In that respect it must be like language. The understanding of simple rules produces an understanding of a language. What could be simpler? #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Principles quotes by Chuck Baldwin
#95. Legalized abortion is a national holocaust; an affront to our national character; a contradiction of established principles subscribed to from the beginning of Western Civilization; an insult to the principles of our Declaration of Independence; a bane of our national spirit; and a stench in the nostrils of Almighty God. #Quote by Chuck Baldwin
Principles quotes by Richard Feynman
#96. No government has the right to decide on the truth of scientific principles, nor to prescribe in any way the character of the questions investigated. Neither may a government determine the aesthetic value of artistic creations, nor limit the forms of literacy or artistic expression. Nor should it pronounce on the validity of economic, historic, religious, or philosophical doctrines. Instead it has a duty to its citizens to maintain the freedom, to let those citizens contribute to the further adventure and the development of the human race. #Quote by Richard Feynman
Principles quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#97. Oh, those grumblers! They all take principles as motives and dare not follow their desires. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Principles quotes by Batuhan Ibal
#98. Ignorance is a bliss. One does not simply believe everything they see on the Internet. If an individual has full swag control and mastery of the deception of swag, one could have easily seen through this 'troll'. This is why learning the basic 4 swag principles and mastering them is extremely necessary. Basically, one must AT least master the 4 elements of swag in order to see through deception and perceive where the swag count energy is being emitted from. this state of mind is not common, but it is essential for right thinking , where it is absent, discussion is adapted to become worse than useless.
My title as 'Man of Swag' can never be replaced. I am Swag #Quote by Batuhan Ibal
Principles quotes by Hudson Gurney
#99. [Young] was afterwards accustomed to say, that at no period of his life was he particularly fond of repeating experiments, or even of very frequently attempting to originate new ones; considering that, however necessary to the advancement of science, they demanded a great sacrifice of time, and that when the fact was once established, that time was better employed in considering the purposes to which it might be applied, or the principles which it might tend to elucidate. #Quote by Hudson Gurney
Principles quotes by Plutarch
#100. What All The World Knows Water is the principle, or the element, of things. All things are water. #Quote by Plutarch
Principles quotes by George Orwell
#101. I am always amazed when I hear people saying that sport creates goodwill between the nations, and that if only the common peoples of the world could meet one another at football or cricket, they would have no inclination to meet on the battlefield. Even if one didn't know from concrete examples (the 1936 Olympic Games, for instance) that international sporting contests lead to orgies of hatred, one could deduce it from general principles ... There cannot be much doubt that the whole thing is bound up with the rise of nationalism - that is, with the lunatic modern habit of identifying oneself with large power units and seeing everything in terms of competitive prestige. #Quote by George Orwell
Principles quotes by Pat Tillman
#102. So use all that is called fortune. Most men gamble with her, and gain all and lose all, as her wheel rolls ... A political victory, a rise of rents, the recovery of your sick or the return of your absent friend, or some other favorable event raises your spirits, and you think good days are preparing for you. Do not believe it. Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles. #Quote by Pat Tillman
Principles quotes by Prince William
#103. My guiding principles in life are to be honest, genuine, thoughtful and caring. #Quote by Prince William
Principles quotes by Rachel Notley
#104. Albertans were looking for change. And so I think that we're staying true to our principles by working to deliver on that change. And I think that is what people were looking for #Quote by Rachel Notley
Principles quotes by Muhammad Ali
#105. My principles are more important than the money or my title. #Quote by Muhammad Ali
Principles quotes by Maurice Glasman, Baron Glasman
#106. What I've learnt is when you walk into a family argument and people tell you it's about principle don't get involved. There is more to life than principles. #Quote by Maurice Glasman, Baron Glasman
Principles quotes by James M. Buchanan
#107. Political economists stress the technical economic principles that one must understand in order to assess alternative arrangements for promoting peaceful cooperation and productive specialization among free men. Yet political economists go further and frankly try to bring out into the open the philosophical issues that necessarily underlie all discusions of the appropriate functions of government and all proposed economic policy measures. They examine philosophical values for consistency among themselves and with the ideal of human freedom. #Quote by James M. Buchanan
Principles quotes by Davy Crockett
#108. I have always supported measures and principles and not men. #Quote by Davy Crockett
Principles quotes by Ernest Renan
#109. All the great things of humanity have been accomplished in the name of absolute principles. #Quote by Ernest Renan
Principles quotes by Sahara Sanders
#110. If you harbor preferred principles and ways of behaving that have never brought you ANY happiness, or even much luck in your personal relationships over a number of years - this should not be taken as a sign that all women are bad or that none of them are serious, but
A SIGN THAT YOUR OWN ATTITUDE AND DATING STRATEGIES ARE FLAWED AND NOT REALLY SUCCESSFUL - and can only bring you further disappointments with women!

It seems like an elementary, easy thing to accept. Strangely, thousands of people seem, for some reason, to be unable, or stubbornly refuse, to see the truth and draw such a logical conclusion. #Quote by Sahara Sanders
Principles quotes by Ayn Rand
#111. There can be no compromise on basic principles. There can be no compromise on moral issues. There can be no compromise on matters of knowledge, of truth, of rational conviction. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Principles quotes by Terence McKenna
#112. The data stream has been corrupted, return to first principles. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Principles quotes by Dana Stabenow
#113. Cops never took anything on faith, and disbelieved every story that was told them on principle until and unless they could confirm that the story was fact in all its essentials, and even then remained wary and unconvinced. Cop shops bred skeptics. Skeptics cherished few illusions about human nature, and therefore were seldom disappointed. #Quote by Dana Stabenow
Principles quotes by Hans-Georg Gadamer
#114. The sensus communis plays no part in Kant - not even in the logical sense. What Kant treats in the transcendental doctrine of judgment - i.e., the doctrine of schematism and the principles - no longer has anything to do with the sensus communis.57 For here we are concerned with concepts that are supposed to refer to their objects a priori, and not with the subsumption of the particular under the universal. #Quote by Hans-Georg Gadamer
Principles quotes by Tobias Dantzig
#115. And so matching by itself is incapable of creating an art of reckoning. Without our ability to arrange things in ordered succession little progress could have been made. Correspondence and succession, the two principles that permeate all mathematics - nay, all realms of exact thought - are woven into the very fabric of our number system. #Quote by Tobias Dantzig
Principles quotes by Marianne Williamson
#116. I am a student of universal spiritual principles, and I read theology and spiritual writings, so my grasp of basic spiritual principles is fairly good. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Principles quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#117. I seek to sensitize and clarify the essential elements of my soul. I will leave striving for the flags of fame and fortune behind and go where the soul beckons without fearing the decisive outcome. I will travel in a world without boundaries and embrace danger and awe. I will stand as a witness to comedy, beauty, and tragedy and apply the principles of artistic and ascetic forms of awareness to overcome the inherent frustration of enduring a fundamentally painful human existence. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Principles quotes by Chris Cleave
#118. Nobody has the time to sit down and explain the first world from first principles. #Quote by Chris Cleave
Principles quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#119. I am not one of those who have the least anxiety about the triumph of the principles I have stood for. I have seen fools resist Providence before, and I have seen their destruction, as will come upon these again, utter destruction and contempt. That we shall prevail is as sure as that God reigns. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Principles quotes by James Madison
#120. Temporary deviations from fundamental principles are always more or less dangerous. When the first pretext fails, those who become interested in prolonging the evil will rarely be at a loss for other pretexts. #Quote by James Madison
Principles quotes by Michael Shermer
#121. We should be exploring consciousness at the neural level and higher, where the arrow of causal analysis points up toward such principles as emergence and self-organization. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Principles quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#122. These were the companions who justified my principles, who gave me the strength to continue against any foe, real or imagined. These were the companions who fought the helplessness, the rage, and frustration.
These were the friends who gave me my life. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Principles quotes by Victor Ponta
#123. I see four principles as laying the foundations for the kind of economic recovery Europe needs: fairness, efficiency, solidarity and growth. #Quote by Victor Ponta
Principles quotes by Marcus Vitruvius Pollio
#124. Propriety is that perfection of style which comes when a work is authoritatively constructed on approved principles. It arises from prescription, from usage, or from nature. #Quote by Marcus Vitruvius Pollio
Principles quotes by Ronnie Musgrove
#125. Enacting elements of the Affordable Care Act isn't backtracking on core principles, but rather understanding that new ways to help make health care affordable builds stronger businesses and saves struggling hospitals. And that is a very attractive offer. #Quote by Ronnie Musgrove
Principles quotes by Lysander Spooner
#126. The principle, on which the war was waged by the North, was simply this: That men may rightfully be compelled to submit to, and support, a government that they do not want; and that resistance, on their part, makes them traitors and criminals. #Quote by Lysander Spooner
Principles quotes by George Washington
#127. Not only do I pray for it, on the score of human dignity, but I can clearly forsee that nothing but the rooting out of slavery can perpetuate the existence of our union, by consolidating it in a common bond of principle. #Quote by George Washington
Principles quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#128. It is difficult for me to regard anyone who obeys no moral principle in his conduct to be a religious man. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Principles quotes by Raymond Geuss
#129. Monotheistic religions in the West have tended to conflate having a general orientation in life, having a specific theory of the world, having a sense of the positive meaningfulness of one's existence, and having a fixed set of rules for behavior, but these elements are in principle separable ... The "metaphysical need," ... both Marx and Nietzsche held, is a historical phenomenon that arises under determinate circumstances, and could be expected to disappear under other circumstances that we could relatively easily envisage. #Quote by Raymond Geuss
Principles quotes by Gustave Courbet
#130. The principle of realism means denial of the ideal. #Quote by Gustave Courbet
Principles quotes by Tim Salmon
#131. I have always been determined to never compromise my faith or my principles. I always relied on my God-given talent when I took the field. So the idea of using PED's to enhance my performance was a line I chose not to cross. #Quote by Tim Salmon

Principles quotes by Benjamin Tucker
#135. Almost the only persons who may be said to comprehend even approximately the significance, principles, and purposes of Socialism are the chief leaders of the extreme wings of the Socialistic forces, and perhaps a few of the money kings themselves. #Quote by Benjamin Tucker
Principles quotes by M. Jeannine Coreil
#136. Social marketing is distinguished from other planning frameworks discussed in this book by four principles: (1) a commitment to create satisfying exchanges, (2) the use of marketing's conceptual framework to design interventions, (3) a data-based consumer orientation, and (4) segmentation of populations and careful selection of target audiences. #Quote by M. Jeannine Coreil

#138. A man of principles," Jesse said.

Principles quotes by Oscar Wilde
#141. His principles were out of date, but there was a good deal to be said for his prejudices. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Principles quotes by Josiah Bailey
#142. The American Republic and American business are Siamese twins; they came out of the same womb at the same time; they are born in the same principles and when American business dies, the American Republic will die, and when the American Republic dies, American business will die. #Quote by Josiah Bailey
Principles quotes by Albert Hadley
#143. Flair is a primitive kind of style. It is innate and cannot be taught. It can be polished and refined. When a person has flair, a grounding in the principle of design, and self-discipline, that person has the potential of being an outstanding designer. #Quote by Albert Hadley
Principles quotes by Ban Ki-moon
#144. From the Balkans to Africa, from Asia to the Middle East, we have witnessed the weakening or absence of effective governance leading to the ravaging of human rights and the abandonment of longstanding humanitarian principles. We need competent and responsible states to meet the needs of "we the peoples" for whom the UN was created. And the world's peoples will not be fully served unless peace, development and human rights, the three pillars of the UN, are advanced together with equal vigour. #Quote by Ban Ki-moon
Principles quotes by James Clerk Maxwell
#145. But it is evident that all analogies of this kind depend on principles of a more fundamental nature; and that, if we had a true mathematical classification of quantities, we should be able at once to detect the analogy between any system of quantities presented to us and other systems of quantities in known sciences, so that we should lose no time in availing ourselves of the mathematical labors of those who had already solved problems essentially the same. [...] At the same time, I think that the progress of science, both in the way of discovery, and in the way of diffusion, would be greatly aided if more attention were paid in a direct way to the classification of quantities.

Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society, 1871 #Quote by James Clerk Maxwell
Principles quotes by Harold H. Greene
#146. The impression I have of Justice Warren is that he was looking for the just result in a case regardless of fixed dogma or principles and I like to think that I'm in that mold. #Quote by Harold H. Greene
Principles quotes by Bayard Rustin
#147. For generations the status quo has been based on violence, with the Negro as victim. A few whites have managed to be liberal without feeling a direct threat to their social position. Now, as the Negroes reach the stage where they make specific, if minimum, demands, a new and revolutionary situation has developed. There is little middle ground on which to maneuver and few compromises that are possible. For the first time, the white liberals are forced to stand for racial justice or to repudiate the liberal principles which they have always wanted to believe in. #Quote by Bayard Rustin
Principles quotes by Charles Duhigg
#148. If you focus on changing or cultivating keystone habits, you can cause widespread shifts. However, identifying keystone habits is tricky. To find them, you have to know where to look. Detecting keystone habits means searching out certain characteristics. Keystone habits offer what is known within academic literature as "small wins." They help other habits to flourish by creating new structures, and they establish cultures where change becomes contagious. But as O'Neill and countless others have found, crossing the gap between understanding those principles and using them requires a bit of ingenuity. #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Principles quotes by Rafael García
#149. If you are to live in this world, then you must be willing to actively participate in life." You cannot just be an expectator. You cannot just be sitting down at the bleachers and comtemplate the game and expect to win. You are to step out of your comfortable zone. You are to participate and do your very best. Remember, "Every pro was once an amateur. Every expert was once a beginner." And every beginner once decided to step down from the bleachers and start participating.
Build a solid foundation for your life. Stay rooted in the Word. Don't let the holy things become common. Be disciplined and be committed. Sacrifice what you are to sacrifice in order to succeed. But never ever your values, integrity, character, and principles. Never give up nor give in.
Be aware that people will hate you on your way up. People will rate you. They'll will shake you and try to bring you down. "But how strong you stand, is what makes you."
Choose to live by choice not by chance.
Be motivated and not manipulated. BE useful not used. Make changes and not excuses. Aim to excel not to compete. Choose self-esteem, not self pitty.
Choose to listen to your inner voice, (which is GOd's word whispering to you) not to the random opinions of others.
And finally, choose to live for yourself and not to please others.
Word of advice, "make your goals so big, that your everyday problems seem insignificant."
Have a bless day #Quote by Rafael García
Principles quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#150. Every man is worth just so much as the things about which he busies himself. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Principles quotes by Jean-Paul Sartre
#151. Man is nothing else but what he makes of himself. #Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre
Principles quotes by William Zinsser
#152. Never forget that you are practicing a craft with certain principles. #Quote by William Zinsser
Principles quotes by Michael Shermer
#153. To be a fully functioning moral agent, one cannot passively accept moral principles handed down by fiat. Moral principles require moral reasoning. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Principles quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#154. A person must escape artificial constraints and unfold the myth of their own being. There is only one path for a thinking person in life, and that is to assume the role of a compassionate observer. I can only achieve personal freedom – liberty of the mind, body, and soul – by stop worrying about how other people perceive me and no longer judge myself in terms of fame and fortune. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Principles quotes by Howard W. Hunter
#155. Realizing who we are and what we may become assures us that with God nothing really is impossible. From the time we learn that Jesus wants us for a Sunbeam until we learn more fully the basic principles of the gospel, we are taught to strive for perfection. It is not new to us then to talk of the importance of achievement. The difficulty arises when inflated expectations of the world alter our definition of greatness. #Quote by Howard W. Hunter
Principles quotes by Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach
#156. When two good men contend about principles, both are always right. #Quote by Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach
Principles quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#157. Whoever shall introduce into public affairs the principles of primitive Christianity will change the face of the world. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Principles quotes by William Blum
#158. The "trickle-down" theory: the principle that the poor, who must subsist on table scraps dropped by the rich, can best be served by giving the rich bigger meals. #Quote by William Blum

#160. It is so easy to have principles. Far, far harder to live by them. #Quote by N.K. Jemisin
Principles quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#161. Your principles have life in them. For how can they perish, unless the ideas that correspond to them are extinguished? And it is up to you to be constantly fanning them into new flame. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Principles quotes by Myles Munroe
#162. The Bible is really not a religious book but a divine manual written by the manufacturer of humanity by which the product man is supposed to live. If we learn those principles and obey them, then we find that the process of failure to success becomes more inevitability than experiment. #Quote by Myles Munroe
Principles quotes by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
#163. Hemingway, damn his soul, makes everything he writes terrifically exciting (and incidentally makes all us second-raters seem positively adolescent) by the seemingly simple expedient of the iceberg principle - three-fourths of the substance under the surface. He comes closer that way to retaining the magic of the original, unexpressed idea or emotion, which is always more stirring than any words. But just try and do it! #Quote by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
Principles quotes by Wendell Berry
#164. When the possessions and households of citizens are no longer honored by the acts, as well as the principles, of their government, then the concentration camp ceases to be one of the possibilities of human nature and becomes one of its likelihoods. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Principles quotes by Ron Paul
#165. The most basic principle to being a free American is the notion that we as individuals are responsible for our own lives and decisions. We do not have the right to rob our neighbors to make up for our mistakes, neither does our neighbor have any right to tell us how to live, so long as we aren't infringing on their rights. Freedom to make bad decisions is inherent in the freedom to make good ones. If we are only free to make good decisions, we are not really free. #Quote by Ron Paul
Principles quotes by Richelle Mead
#166. Most do," she agreed. "Me? My principles are about love and doing it because there's meaning and commitment. A piece of paper doesn't always signal that. If there's any sin involved, it's doing it in a . . . I don't know. Cheap way. With people you don't care about. When it's meaningless. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Principles quotes by Benjamin Rush
#167. The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty; and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments ... We waste so much time and money in punishing crimes, and take so little pains to prevent them. We profess to be republicans, and yet we neglect the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government, that is, the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity, by means of the Bible; for this divine book, above all others favors that equality among mankind, that respect for just laws. #Quote by Benjamin Rush
Principles quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#168. Work is a means to fulfill your heavenly mandate #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Principles quotes by Adolf Hitler
#169. By helping to raise man above the level of bestial vegetation, faith contributes in reality to the securing and safeguarding of his existence. Take away from present-day mankind its education-based, religious-dogmatic principles- or, practically speaking, ethical-moral principles- by abolishing this religious education, but without replacing it by an equivalent, and the result will be a grave shock to the foundations of their existence. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Principles quotes by Thomas Paine
#170. Every science has for its basis a system of principles as fixed and unalterable as those by which the universe is regulated and governed. Man cannot make principles; he can only discover them. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Principles quotes by David Bohm
#171. There is no reason why an extraphysical general principle is necessarily to be avoided, since such principles could conceivably serve as useful working hypotheses. For the history of scientific research is full of examples in which it was very fruitful indeed to assume that certain objects or elements might be real, long before any procedures were known which would permit them to be observed directly. #Quote by David Bohm
Principles quotes by Pat Barker
#172. The way I see it, when you put the uniform on, in effect you sign a contract. And you don't back out of a contract merely because you've changed your mind. You can still speak up for your principles, you can still argue against the ones you're being made to fight for, but in the end you do the job. #Quote by Pat Barker
Principles quotes by George Boole
#173. There was yet another disadvantage attaching to the whole of Newton's physical inquiries, ... the want of an appropriate notation for expressing the conditions of a dynamical problem, and the general principles by which its solution must be obtained. By the labours of LaGrange, the motions of a disturbed planet are reduced with all their complication and variety to a purely mathematical question. It then ceases to be a physical problem; the disturbed and disturbing planet are alike vanished: the ideas of time and force are at an end; the very elements of the orbit have disappeared, or only exist as arbitrary characters in a mathematical formula. #Quote by George Boole
Principles quotes by Robert Boyle
#174. And, to prevent mistakes, I must advertize you, that I now mean by elements, as those chymists that speak plainest do by their principles, certain primitive or simple, or perfectly unmingled bodies; which not being made of any other bodies, or of one another, are the ingredients of which all those called perfectly mixt bodies are immediately compounded, and into which they are ultimately resolved: now whether there be any such body to be constantly met with in all, and each, of those that are said to be elemented bodies, is the thing I now question. #Quote by Robert Boyle

Principles quotes by John Dewey
#176. A moral principle is not a command to act or to forbear acting in a given way: it is a tool for analyzing a special situation, the right or wrong being determined by the situation in its entirety, not by the rule as such. #Quote by John Dewey
Principles quotes by Martin Munkacsi
#177. To see in a thousandth of a second what indifferent people come close to without noticing - that is the principle of photographic reportage. And in the thousandth of a second that follows, to take the photo of what one has seen - that is the practical side of reportage. #Quote by Martin Munkacsi
Principles quotes by C.E. Murphy
#178. I opened my eyes to find Gary and my mother sitting cross-legged up against a half-fallen wall, both of them laughing so hard they had tears running down their faces. My mother had Gary's forearm in one hand as she wheezed, "She didn't, she didn't!" and wiped tears away with the other, and Gary nodded so merrily it appeared his head would go bobbling off.
It was so completely incongruous with the farewell I'd just experienced I just sat there, offended on general principles, and waited for them to notice I'd woken up. Instead my mother threw her head back and shrieked like a delighted banshee, laughter bouncing off the crumbling walls.
I looked upward. The surviving banshees still sat in the oak rafters, many of them with expressions of accusation. This was not how things were done, and it was clearly all my fault. #Quote by C.E. Murphy
Principles quotes by Mark Twain
#179. I am a democrat only on principle, not by instinct, nobody is that. Doubtless some people say they are, but this world is grievously given to lying. #Quote by Mark Twain
Principles quotes by Jonathan Haidt
#180. why moral and political arguments are so frustrating: because moral reasons are the tail wagged by the intuitive dog. A dog's tail wags to communicate. You can't make a dog happy by forcibly wagging its tail. And you can't change people's minds by utterly refuting their arguments. Hume diagnosed the problem long ago: And as reasoning is not the source, whence either disputant derives his tenets; it is in vain to expect, that any logic, which speaks not to the affections, will ever engage him to embrace sounder principles.49 #Quote by Jonathan Haidt
Principles quotes by Michael Ponsor
#181. For me, taking the sort of dry principles of the law and bringing them into contact with human beings ... it's like you jump into hyperspace. And everything that's dull about the books and the theory becomes provocative. #Quote by Michael Ponsor
Principles quotes by Anonymous
#182. Fill your mind with all peaceful experiences possible, then make planned and deliberate excursions to them in memory. You must learn that the easiest way to an easy mind is to create an easy mind. This is done by practice, by the application of some such simple principles as outlined here. The mind quickly responds to teaching and discipline. #Quote by Anonymous
Principles quotes by Jeane Kirkpatrick
#183. It is a different matter entirely to commit military resources to keep peace in such areas, where often no peace can be kept, or to build nations in our own image before they are ready for our freedoms - or even want them. The military need not do the work of sanctions and diplomacy. As we carry on in this new century, we would do well to remember the importance of balancing the twin goals of our foreign policy: preserving national security and promoting democratic principles. And we must remember that historic conflicts between enemies can be won on moral force, without firing a single bullet or missile; that cultural, market, political, and perhaps religious forces can be far more transformative in areas of the world where chaos and violence reign; and that America can contribute to the building of nations by any and all of these means - while preserving our military and reserving our sovereign right to wage war to maintain true peace. #Quote by Jeane Kirkpatrick

Principles quotes by Nadezhda Tolokonnikova
#187. Modern capitalism seeks to assure us that it operates according to the principles of free creativity, endless development and diversity. It glosses over its other side in order to hide the reality that millions of people are enslaved by an all-powerful and fantastically stable norm of production. We want to reveal this lie. #Quote by Nadezhda Tolokonnikova
Principles quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#188. All of us need a vision for our lives, and even as we work to achieve that vision, we must surrender to the power that is greater than we know. It's one of the defining principles of my life that I love to share: God can dream a bigger dream for you than you could ever dream for yourself. #Quote by Oprah Winfrey
Principles quotes by William Lyon Phelps

Principles quotes by David Cecil
#190. The visible structure of Jane Austen's stories may be flimsy enough; but their foundations drive deep down into the basic principles of human conduct. On her bit of ivory she has engraved a criticism of life as serious and as considers as Hardy's. #Quote by David Cecil
Principles quotes by Lynne Namka
#191. When we are in alignment with what we truly believe, we can stand firm and tall and tell it like it is. This healthy kind of anger sets boundaries, holding others responsible for their actions. You teach people how to treat you through setting all sorts of boundaries or not setting them! Healthy anger can be like a burning sword that cuts through illusions and delusions about a bad situation. The energy of healthy anger can point the way to positive change but even more so when you speak in a calm, firm way. Stop and think how you are training people to treat you. The secret of boundary setting is centering yourself, breathing deeply and connecting with your truth to align yourself with higher principles, letting them speak through you.

Principles quotes by Gino Severini
#194. In the early days the Cubists' method of grasping an object was to go round and round it; the futurists declared that one had to get inside it. In my opinion the two views can be reconciled in a poetic cognition of the world. But to the very fact that they appealed to the creative depths in the painter by awakening in him hidden forces which were intuitive and vitalizing, the Futurist theories did more than the Cubist principles to open up unexplored and boundless horizons. #Quote by Gino Severini
Principles quotes by Maimonides
#195. All the evils that men cause to each other because of certain desires, or opinions or religious principles, are rooted in ignorance. [All hatred would come to an end] when the earth was flooded with the knowledge of God. #Quote by Maimonides
Principles quotes by Fabiola Gianotti
#196. Musical harmony is based on physical principles, while in cooking, ingredients must be weighed out with precision. At the same time, you have to be able to invent because if one follows the same recipe all the time, you never create anything new. #Quote by Fabiola Gianotti
Principles quotes by Robert C. Martin
#197. Duplication may be the root of all evil in software. Many principles and practices have been created for the purpose of controlling or eliminating it. #Quote by Robert C. Martin

Principles quotes by Heather Rose Jones
#200. Barbara took her accustomed place by the door but as the singing began Margerit beckoned her over to her side. "I haven't been following much except that it's all ancient Greeks and battles and such. What's happening now?"
Barbara knelt beside her and leaned close to whisper so as not to disturb the rest of the party. A brief synopsis of what had gone before took up the time while the chorus escorted the principles to the centre of the stage. "I haven't seen this performance before," Barbara added, "but I imagine this will be the grand love duet." As the soprano began, she concentrated on the stage to follow the opening phrases. The chorus had abandoned the field to the principles who faced each other against a backdrop of fluted columns.
"O! What strange fate is mine!" Barbara paused as the signature line was repeated several times. "I loved you in the guise of Mars, but now I am betrayed by Venus. The iron in your glance turns soft beneath my touch. I am undone. O Venus, you are cruel to mock me so." It continued on in the same vein until it was the mezzo's turn. Her lyrics ran much parallel with the soprano's. With less concentration required, Barbara ventured a glance to see Margerit's reaction. Margerit turned at the same moment and their eyes met as Barbara whispered Ifis's lines.
"O! What a strange fate is mine! In the guise of Mars I love you but now as Venus I'm betrayed. The Iron in my soul turns soft beneath your touch." Unconsciously, Margerit pl #Quote by Heather Rose Jones
