Threats quotes by Rand Paul
#1. I think we're never fully protected, but I think we need to do everything we can to stop threats to us. #Quote by Rand Paul
Threats quotes by Earl Nightingale
#2. How are you coming with your home library? Do you need some good ammunition on why it's so important to read? The last time I checked the statistics...I think they indicated that only four percent of the adults in this country have bought a book within the past year. That's dangerous. It's extremely important that we keep ourselves in the top five or six percent.
In one of the Monthly Letters from the Royal Bank of Canada it was pointed out that reading good books is not something to be indulged in as a luxury. It is a necessity for anyone who intends to give his life and work a touch of quality. The most real wealth is not what we put into our piggy banks but what we develop in our heads. Books instruct us without anger, threats and harsh discipline. They do not sneer at our ignorance or grumble at our mistakes. They ask only that we spend some time in the company of greatness so that we may absorb some of its attributes.

You do not read a book for the book's sake, but for your own.

You may read because in your high-pressure life, studded with problems and emergencies, you need periods of relief and yet recognize that peace of mind does not mean numbness of mind.

You may read because you never had an opportunity to go to college, and books give you a chance to get something you missed. You may read because your job is routine, and books give you a feeling of depth in life.

You may read because you did go to college.

Threats quotes by Jim Gerlach
#3. Yet the march toward freedom is not without its hazards or its casualties and the threats of violence aimed at Iraqis who participate in the election will be dealt with accordingly. #Quote by Jim Gerlach
Threats quotes by Dean Koontz
#4. My unique path through life has led me, however, to fear known threats but seldom the unknown, while most people fear both. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Threats quotes by Richard C. Carrier
#5. ...the naive forms of Christian moral motivation - bare threats of hell and the bribery of heaven - stunt moral growth by ensuring believers remain emotional children, never achieving the cognitive moral development of adults. Psychologists have established that mature adults are moral not because of bare threats and bribes (that stage of moral development typifies children, not adults), but because they care about the effects their behavior has on themselves and others. #Quote by Richard C. Carrier
Threats quotes by Gerard Butler
#6. It's always more interesting to make a movie about what is relevant in your society. What's the political global backdrop? What are our threats? What are we vulnerable to? Because that's what an audience vibes on - that is what people are interested in, universally. #Quote by Gerard Butler
Threats quotes by David DeSteno
#7. humans appear to have a built-in immune system for threats to their own well-being. If we're about to blame ourselves for bad behavior, our minds intervene with a whitewash. #Quote by David DeSteno
Threats quotes by Jeffrey R. Holland
#8. In such times as we are in, whether the threats be global or local or in individual lives, I too pray for the children. Some days it seems that a sea of temptation and transgression inundates them, simply washes over them before they can successfully withstand it, before they should have to face it. And often at least some of the forces at work seem beyond our personal control. Well, some of them may be beyond our control, but I testify with faith in the living God that they are not beyond His. #Quote by Jeffrey R. Holland
Threats quotes by Jayne Ann Krentz
#9. I love threats. They make great quotes. Is that recorder working, Irene? #Quote by Jayne Ann Krentz
Threats quotes by George W. Romney
#10. Extremism in defense of liberty is not a vice, but I denounce political extremism, of the left or the right, based on duplicity, falsehood, fear, violence and threats when they endanger liberty. #Quote by George W. Romney
Threats quotes by Noam Chomsky
#11. As international support for Obama's decision to attack Syria has collapsed, along with the credibility of government claims, the administration has fallen back on a standard pretext for war crimes when all else fails: the credibility of the threats of the self-designated policeman of the world. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Threats quotes by Jesse Jackson
#12. I was extended secret service protection during my presidential run in 1984, when I received the most death threats ever made toward a candidate. #Quote by Jesse Jackson
Threats quotes by Hoshyar Zebari
#13. The problem was to get judges who were not afraid to prosecute Saddam despite intimidation and threats. #Quote by Hoshyar Zebari
Threats quotes by Dean Koontz
#14. Fear is the engine that drives the human animal. Humanity sees the world as a place of uncountable threats, and so the world becomes what humanity imagines it to be. They not only live in fear but use fear to control one another. Fearmongering is their true religion. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Threats quotes by James Comey
#15. The FBI is engaged in a myriad of efforts to combat cyber threats, from efforts focused on threat identification and sharing inside and outside of government, to our internal emphasis on developing and retaining new talent and changing the way we operate to evolve with the cyber threat. #Quote by James Comey
Threats quotes by Mustafa Akyol
#16. Disapproving and boycotting is the Quranic thing to do, whereas violence and threats are not. #Quote by Mustafa Akyol

Threats quotes by Mario Puzo
#18. The Don considered a use of threats the most foolish kind of exposure; the unleashing of anger without forethought as the most dangerous indulgence. No one had ever heard the Don utter a naked threat, no one had ever seen him in an uncontrollable rage. It was unthinkable. #Quote by Mario Puzo
Threats quotes by Menachem Begin
#19. What kind of expression is this - "punishing Israel"? Are we a vassal state of yours? Are we a banana republic? Are we youths of fourteen who, if they don't behave properly, are slapped across the fingers? Let me tell you who this government is composed of. It is composed of people whose lives were spent in resistance, in fighting and in suffering. You will not frighten us with "punishments." He who threatens us will find us deaf to his threats. We are only prepared to listen to rational arguments. You have no right to "punish" Israel - and I protest at the very use of this term. #Quote by Menachem Begin
Threats quotes by Jim Gerlach
#20. Since its enactment in the weeks following the September 11 terrorist attacks, the tools in the Patriot Act have been used by law enforcement to stop more than 400 terrorist threats to our families and communities. #Quote by Jim Gerlach
Threats quotes by Edward Snowden
#21. The way the United States intelligence community operates is it doesn't limit itself to the protection of the homeland. It doesn't limit itself to countering terrorist threats, countering nuclear proliferation. It's also used for economic espionage, for political spying to gain some knowledge of what other countries are doing. #Quote by Edward Snowden
Threats quotes by James Patterson
#22. I dropped my voice and stared into her eyes. I could tell she was trying hard not to look away. I was so furious I could have cheerfully ripped her head off. "But you're going to find out, Mom,' I said very softly."And it's gonna give you nightmares for the rest of your wasted life."
Oh, my God, I was so badass. It was all I could do to not give a MWA HA HA! #Quote by James Patterson
Threats quotes by Amanda Scott
#23. Meeting Andrew's steady gaze, Ian said, "Did you really tell Dougal that you would see him and Pharlain in hell before you would let Lina marry him?"
"I did, aye. After he made his vile threats, I also told him I'd gut him and feed his entrails to the beasts o' the forest here afore I'd give him our Lina." He added mildly, "I think the man understands that I didna like the notion."
Hearing a strange sound from Rob, Ian darted a glance at him to see that his friend had clapped a hand to his mouth. Above it, his eyes twinkled merrily.
"Did you just laugh?" Ian demanded.
Rob shook his head, lowering his hand, and eyes still atwinkle, said, "I choked." Extending a hand to Andrew, he said, "It is an honor to know you, sir."
"Aye, good, for I've one more daughter t' marry off, ye ken - our Muriella. She's a mite young yet, her mam says. But if ye'd be interested . . ."
Sobering instantly, Rob said, "You do me great honor, my lord, and I thank you. But I'll not inflict myself so on any female at present."
Andrew gave him a long look but said no more on the subject of Muriella.
Instead, he turned to Ian and said, "Shall we send for our Lina and tell her the good news, lad? Or d'ye need me to tell ye what a rare prize the lassie is, so ye can think more on the notion?"
Ian's thoughts had flown to Lina's likely reaction to the "good news." She would scarcely receive it as such. #Quote by Amanda Scott
Threats quotes by Doug Bandow
#24. The United States faces no serious military threats today, yet is constantly at war. #Quote by Doug Bandow
Threats quotes by Heather Mills

Threats quotes by Barack Obama
#27. By dint of vision, and determination, and most of all faith in the redeeming power of love, he endured the humiliation of arrest, the loneliness of a prison cell, the constant threats to his life, until he finally inspired a nation to transform itself, and begin to live up to the meaning of its creed. - Senator Obama #Quote by Barack Obama
Threats quotes by Nenia Campbell
#28. I was cyber-bullied before all those Myspace-related suicides, so my school principal wasn't really impressed when my mom complained about what was happening to me on my Xanga blog and on AIM chat.
"Get your life sorted out, you fucking scitzo [sic] dyke tranny bitch," one comment might say.
Another comment would say something like, "I know she's reading this, she's so pathetic."
And, perhaps most frightening of all: "I'm going to fuck you up until your mother bleeds. #Quote by Nenia Campbell
Threats quotes by George Virtue
#29. It much honoureth God, when his servants can quietly and fearlessly trust in him, in the face of all the dangers and threatenings which devils or men can cast before them; and can joyfully suffer pain or death, in obedience to his commands, and in confidence on his promise of everlasting happiness. - This showeth that we believe indeed that "there is a God," and that "he is the rewarder of them that diligently seek him," Heb. xi. 6; and that he is true and just; and that his promises are to be trusted on; and that he is able to make them good, in despite of all the malice of his enemies; and that the threats or frowns of sinful worms are contemptible to him that feareth God. Psal. lviii. 11, "So that men shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily there is a God that judgeth in the earth," and that at last will judge the world in righteousness. #Quote by George Virtue
Threats quotes by Hazel Hawke
#30. One of the most important thing in families, both for children and spouses, is never to close off possibilities - particularly never to make demands or threats. #Quote by Hazel Hawke
Threats quotes by Gail Carriger
#31. Lady Maccon wondered if she had ever been so foolish over Lord Maccon. Then she recalled that her affection generally took the form of threats and verbal barbs. She gave herself a pat on the back for avoiding sentimentality. #Quote by Gail Carriger
Threats quotes by Stephen Covey
#32. Most people are basically a victim of the circumstances of their life. They have things like 9/11, they have terrorism threats, they have new war threats, they have economy problems, and they think, 'What can I do? I'm basically a victim.' #Quote by Stephen Covey
Threats quotes by Natsuo Kirino
#33. But even a nice mom and dad like this can't really sense how their child's been assaulted by commercialism ever since she was little, how she's lived in fear of being eaten alive by the morons around her. They just don't get it.
Mom always lectures me about not being afraid of getting hurt, but all she can imagine is the kind of hurt she's experienced herself. She has no idea of the threats that surround kids these days, how much we're bullied, how much hurt this causes. #Quote by Natsuo Kirino
Threats quotes by Ella James
#34. Instead I go to the vineyard and jerk off in my bed. When I'm finished, I call Marchant. I can't tell him about Priscilla's threats... #Quote by Ella James
Threats quotes by David Eddings
#35. I made some more threats. I've got this big knife back here." He poked his thumb over his shoulder. "It attracts a lot of attention sometimes. #Quote by David Eddings
Threats quotes by Anne Bradstreet
#36. Fire hath its force abated by water, not by wind; and anger must be allayed by cold words, and not by blustering threats. #Quote by Anne Bradstreet
Threats quotes by Jose Maria Aznar
#37. It is clear that no one will achieve any kind of objective through the force of violence, and that no one will make Spaniards yield to threats of guns, whoever may be holding them #Quote by Jose Maria Aznar

Threats quotes by Rohit Omar
#39. A jitendriya or stoic remains composed and converts his weakness and threats into his strength and opportunities #Quote by Rohit Omar
Threats quotes by Edward Snowden
#40. The United States has faced threats from criminal groups, from terrorists, from spies throughout our history, and we have limited our responses. We haven't resorted to total war every time we have a conflict around the world, because that restraint is what defines us. That restraint is what gives us the moral standing to lead the world. #Quote by Edward Snowden
Threats quotes by Ahmed Zewail
#41. The partnership between the United States and Egypt is crucial to both countries, and it can't be predicated on political manipulation and threats of withholding aid. #Quote by Ahmed Zewail
Threats quotes by Charles Koch
#42. Everything I give, pretty much, is public. Not every donor wants to - or is willing to get the kind of abuse and attacks that we do, or death threats, so they're not willing to have their names out. I think the other side is pushing for that because they want to intimidate people so they won't oppose it. #Quote by Charles Koch
Threats quotes by Paul Watson
#43. The Sea Shepherd crew is doing what governments should be doing, but refuse to do themselves, because of the threats of trade retaliation from Japan. #Quote by Paul Watson
Threats quotes by Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Threats quotes by S.E. Jakes
#46. Threats, Prophet? After all we've been through."
"Promises. And I'm really goddamned good at promises. #Quote by S.E. Jakes
Threats quotes by Lemony Snicket
#47. We'll see what you find out," Stew said. "You'll find out what it feels like to be thrown from a speeding train to the rocky bottom of a drained sea. Except you won't really find out, because you'll be dead. Get it? What I mean is, it'll kill you when I throw you from this train so you'll be in no state to find out what it feels like. Get it? Due to your death by falling from a train. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Threats quotes by Alva Myrdal
#48. Where do these arms come from, these Saturday night specials that constitute the instrument of threats in bank robberies, or the hand grenades used by terrorists? How can their sales and their import be permitted? #Quote by Alva Myrdal
Threats quotes by Terry Pratchett
#49. Why does the third of the three brothers, who shares his food with the old woman in the wood, go on to become king of the country? Why does James Bond manage to disarm the nuclear bomb a few seconds before it goes off rather than, as it were, a few seconds afterwards? Because a universe where that did not happen would be a dark and hostile place. Let there be goblin hordes, let there be terrible environmental threats, let there be giant mutated slugs if you really must, but let there also be hope. It may be a grim, thin hope, an Arthurian sword at sunset, but let us know that we do not live in vain. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Threats quotes by Nancy A. Collins
#50. She knew that the only love her demon was capable of was self-destructive, cruel, vampiric, parasitic, and all the other words her best friends had used to describe Jerry, Alec, Christian, Matt, and the others whose names, faces, and genitalia had now blurred together in her memories. They were men incapable of love yet able to inspire suicide threats. #Quote by Nancy A. Collins
Threats quotes by Eric S. Raymond
#51. Equally, the Internet interprets attempts at proprietary control as threats and mobilizes to defeat them. #Quote by Eric S. Raymond
Threats quotes by Philip K. Dick
#52. There are no private lives. This a most important aspect of modern life. One of the biggest transformations we have seen in our society is the diminution of the sphere of the private. We must reasonably now all regard the fact that there are no secrets and nothing is private. Everything is public. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Threats quotes by Robert Mueller
#53. In order to be successful against each of these threats, we have to have a presence overseas, work closely not only with our counterparts in the law enforcement community, but also with the intelligence community. #Quote by Robert Mueller
Threats quotes by Albert Bandura
#54. From the social cognitive perspective, it is mainly perceived inefficacy to cope with potentially aversive events that makes them fearsome. To the extent that people believe they can prevent, terminate, or lessen the severity of aversive events, they have little reason to be perturbed by them. But if they believe they are unable to manage threats safely, they have much cause for apprehension #Quote by Albert Bandura
Threats quotes by Adam Levin
#55. It is dangerous to exist in the world. To exist is to be threatened. We must live with threats. #Quote by Adam Levin
Threats quotes by Chris Terrio
#56. The 'Bourne' movies are great in their own ways; it introduces a whole other sort of allegory about the Bush years. The secrecy and the threats of a big global organization. #Quote by Chris Terrio
Threats quotes by Haim Ginott
#57. 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
Threats quotes by Collin Henderson
#58. And the thing about threats is that most of them are empty, nothing more than smoke in the breeze. #Quote by Collin Henderson
Threats quotes by Goldy Moldavsky
#59. There was no point being a fan these days if you weren't willing to go the extra mile for your idols. It wasn't enough anymore to send them fan mail and kiss the posters above our beds. These days you weren't a true fan until you engaged in Twitter death threats and endless stan wars. The fandom landscape was peppered with land mines, and there was no other way to navigate it but to walk until you hit one. You come out the other side a little crazier, yeah, but you're also stronger. You are a true believer. You will do anything for the object of your affection. #Quote by Goldy Moldavsky
Threats quotes by Herta Muller
#60. If you live with death threats, you need friends. So you have to risk that they might spy on you. #Quote by Herta Muller
Threats quotes by Tom Ridge
#61. Remember back then we thought about al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan and a few other places? well, we've seen al Qaeda metastasize. It is now a global scourge. And you have the ascendancy of ISIL. The combination of those two groups
their appeal to the lone wolfs and we see them acting in Belgium and in France and in Canada and the United States so the threat factors and the nature of the threats are far more complicated and far more serious today than on September 12, 2001. #Quote by Tom Ridge
Threats quotes by Jonathan Zittrain
#62. The Internet's distinct configuration may have facilitated anonymous threats, copyright infringement, and cyberattacks, but it has also kindled the flame of freedom in ways that the framers of the American constitution would appreciate - the Federalist papers were famously authored pseudonymously. #Quote by Jonathan Zittrain
Threats quotes by Erik Christian Haugaard
#63. I was not frightened as they were, for the very violence of his threats showed how weak he was. #Quote by Erik Christian Haugaard
Threats quotes by John Dewey
#64. The religious is any activity pursued in behalf of an ideal end against obstacles and in spite of threats of personal loss because of its general and enduring value. #Quote by John Dewey
Threats quotes by John Holt
#65. No use to shout at them to pay attention. If the situations, the materials, the problems before the child do not interest him, his attention will slip off to what does interest him, and no amount of exhortation of threats will bring it back. #Quote by John Holt
Threats quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#66. Jehovah was not a moral god. He had all the vices and he lacked all the virtues. He generally carried out all his threats, but he never faithfully kept a promise. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll
Threats quotes by Clementine Ford
#67. In our current society, it is considered a weakness to be female and a treason to protest this. Highlighting inequality results in aggressive insults and threats, all of which are propped up by the repeated narrative now that women are 'playing the gender card'. And this is the final insult. That of all the unfair things associated with women - the violence and insults, the financial oppression, the very undermining of our worth as human beings - it is the acknowledgement of these inequalities that gives us some kind of unfair advantage over the men who benefit from them. #Quote by Clementine Ford
Threats quotes by Bonnie Greer
#68. We should differentiate between criminals who make violent threats online, and trolls who are just arseholes #Quote by Bonnie Greer
Threats quotes by Eugene McCarthy
#69. An efficient bureaucracy is the greatest threat to liberty. #Quote by Eugene McCarthy
Threats quotes by Barack Obama
#70. Those who threaten Israel threaten us. Israel has always faced these threats on the frontlines, and I will bring to the White House an unshakable commitment to Israel's security. That starts with insuring Israel's qualitative military advantage. I will insure that Israel can defend itself from any threat, from Gaza to Tehran. #Quote by Barack Obama
Threats quotes by William The Silent
#71. My legal wife is to me dead; the only ecclesiastical authority I recognise pronounces me free; the attacks and threats of men do not disturb me. I am acting according to a clear conscience, and am doing hurt to no man. For my conduct, I will answer to my maker. #Quote by William The Silent
Threats quotes by Ilona Andrews
#72. I looked at him. You really need to work on your threats. I can't tell if you're threatening me or inviting me for tea. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Threats quotes by Lee Kuan Yew
#73. If you can't force or are unwilling to force your people to follow you, with or without threats, you are not a leader. #Quote by Lee Kuan Yew
Threats quotes by Wolfgang Schauble
#74. We will not be able to meet the challenges of integration and the threats posed by international terrorism. If we want to prevent attacks, we'll need more information and better integration. #Quote by Wolfgang Schauble
Threats quotes by Scott McClellan
#75. We have to deal with reality. The reality is, we have a number a very high number of illegal immigrants in this country. They're meeting an important economic need. And we are a nation of laws, and we're a nation of immigrants. And if we're going to address the real threats, then we need to have a temporary worker program to allow our Border Patrol agents to focus on the criminals and the thugs and the terrorists and the traffickers and smugglers that are trying to come into this country illegally. #Quote by Scott McClellan
Threats quotes by Elie Wiesel
#76. There is Israel, for us at least. What no other generation had, we have. We have Israel in spite of all the dangers, the threats and the wars, we have Israel. We can go to Jerusalem. Generations and generations could not and we can. #Quote by Elie Wiesel
Threats quotes by Loretta Lynch
#77. Members of organized crime continue to exploit their victims the old-fashioned way - through violence, threats and intimidation. As law enforcement has so successfully done before, we will employ our own time-tested techniques to bring them to justice to account for their crimes. #Quote by Loretta Lynch
Threats quotes by Radley Balko
#78. Police officers today are a protected class, one no politician wants to oppose. Law enforcement interests may occasionally come up short on budgetary issues, but legislatures rarely if ever pass new laws to hold police more accountable, to restrict their powers, or to make them more transparent. In short, police today embody all of the threats the Founders feared were posed by standing armies, plus a few additional ones they couldn't have anticipated. #Quote by Radley Balko
Threats quotes by Stuart Gibbs
#79. You're only a first year!" Tina cried. "And you're already getting death threats! Do you have any idea how lucky you are? #Quote by Stuart Gibbs
Threats quotes by Richard Kadrey
#80. When I was Downtown, I learned a lot about making threats. Make them big. Make them outrageous. You're never going to kick someone's ass. You're going to pull out their tongue and pour liquid nitrogen down their throat, chip out their guts with an ice pick, slide in a pane of glass, and turn them into an aquarium. #Quote by Richard Kadrey
Threats quotes by Bob Uecker
#81. When I played baseball I got death threats all the time
from my mother. #Quote by Bob Uecker
Threats quotes by Abhishek Ratna
#82. Human beings are wired to be more reactive to threats than to rewards. #Quote by Abhishek Ratna
Threats quotes by Sherwood Smith
#83. Loss of prestige? In what way?" I asked.
He sat back, his eyes glinting with amusement. "First there was the matter of a--very--public announcement of a pending execution, following which the intended victim escapes. Then…didn't you stop to consider that the countryside folk who endured many long days of constant martial interference in the form of searches, curfews, and threats might have a few questions about the justice of said threats--or the efficacy of all these armed and mounted soldiery tramping through their fields and farms unsuccessfully trying to flush a single unarmed, rather unprepossessing individual? Especially when said individual took great care not to endanger anyone beyond the first--anonymous--family to give her succor, to whom she promised there would be no civil war?"
I gasped. "I never promised that. How could I? I promised that Bran and I wouldn't carry our fight into their territory."
Shevraeth's smile was wry. "But you must know how gossip gets distorted when it burns across the countryside, faster than a summer hayfire. And you had given the word of a countess. You have to remember that a good part of our…influence…is vouchsafed in our status, after the manner of centuries of habit. It is a strength and a weakness, a good and an evil."
I winced, thinking of Ara, who knew more about history than I did.
"Though you seem to be completely unaware of it, you have become a heroine to the entire kingdom. What is probably more impo #Quote by Sherwood Smith
Threats quotes by Jinzaburo Takagi
#84. My recent activities have been concentrated on criticism on and actions against Japan's and worldwide plutonium programs, since it is, as I believe, one of the greatest threats to the world ... #Quote by Jinzaburo Takagi
Threats quotes by Richard F. Stockton
#85. {Stockton, a playwright who performed plays about Robert Ingersoll, gives the four moments in Ingersoll's life that shaped him, first being the death of his father, who was a reverend}

Despite their opposing religious views, the old revivalist on his deathbed asked Bob to read to him from the black book clutched to his chest. Bob relented, took the book, and was surprised to discover that it wasn't the Bible. It was Plato describing the noble death of the pagan Socrates: a moving gesture of reconciliation between father and son in parting. The second event was Bob's painful realization that his outspoken agnosticism not only invalidated his own political career but ended his brother Ebon's career in Congress, as well. Third was the exquisite anguish of seeing his supportive wife Eva and his young daughters made to suffer for his right to speak his own mind. And fourth was the dramatic tension of having to walk out alone on public stages, in a glaring spotlight, time after time with death threats jammed in his tuxedo pocket informing him that some armed bigot in that night's audience would see to it that he didn't leave the stage alive. #Quote by Richard F. Stockton
Threats quotes by Susan Forward
#86. In addition to threatening to physically harm his partner, the misogynist may threaten to harm himself or his children. He may threaten to cut off all the money, or he may threaten to find someone else and leave if his partner doesn't do what he wants her to. The more a woman gives in to these threats and intimidations, the less power she has in the relationship. Once she feels helpless, her fears become even more overwhelming. #Quote by Susan Forward
Threats quotes by Jody Hedlund
#87. Let them go and come back here!" Dirk's voice grew harder with anger. "Or else - " "Or else what?" Carl spun around. He'd had enough of Dirk's threats. Who did the man think he was, anyway, lording over him? Did Dirk relish the fact that for once in his life he had power over a nobleman? "What are you going to do?" he shouted. "What?" Dirk rose from the table. His glare sparked with jealousy. "Are you going to tell them the truth about who I am?" Carl said. "Is that it?" Annalisa stiffened. Peter and Uri stopped eating, their greasy fingers suspended over their plates. "Well, why don't I save you the trouble?" Carl continued. "I'll tell them myself. #Quote by Jody Hedlund
Threats quotes by Robert S. Kaplan
#88. Managing risk is very different from managing strategy. Risk management focuses on the negative-threats and failures rather than opportunities and successes. #Quote by Robert S. Kaplan
Threats quotes by Alice Miller
#89. The abused child goes on living within those who have survived such torture, a torture that ended with total repression. They live with the darkness of fear, oppression, and threats. When all its attempts to move the adult to heed its story have failed, it resorts to the language of symptoms to make itself heard. Enter addiction, psychosis, criminality. #Quote by Alice Miller
Threats quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#90. Threats alone, are the weapons of the threatened man. #Quote by Leonardo Da Vinci
Threats quotes by Edwina Gateley
#91. And so you carried
life for the world, Mary,
as you fled,
to protect that very life
from threats of death.
Joining the world's mass of displaced people
you became
and settled in a foreign land--
the only place
to safely nurture
your fragile dream.
Like so many other women
who flee violence,
clutching their babies,
you crossed the border defining you
a stranger,
dependent on foreign aid, welfare
and hand-outs--
the charity of others--
to feed the Son of God. #Quote by Edwina Gateley
Threats quotes by A.C. Grayling
#92. Nowadays, by contrast, Christianity specialises in soft-focus mood music; its threats of hell, its demand for poverty and chastity, its doctrine that only the few will be saved and the many damned, have been shed, replaced by strummed guitars and saccharine smiles. It has reinvented itself so often, and with such breath-taking hypocrisy, in the interests of retaining its hold on the gullible, that a medieval monk who woke today, like Woody Allen in Sleeper, would not be able to recognise the faith that bears the same name as his own. #Quote by A.C. Grayling
Threats quotes by Daniel Smith
#93. The problem of anxiety isn't that the organism responds to threats by near-instantly powering up. That's clearly a good thing, species-survival-wise. It's that sometimes the organism starts seeing threats too readily. #Quote by Daniel Smith
Threats quotes by Joel Klein
#94. One of the great threats to our national security is social cohesion. If people no longer believe that you can start out anywhere and end up at the top successfully in America, that the American dream is part of the past, I think that erodes a sense of belief and confidence in our nation. #Quote by Joel Klein
Threats quotes by Neil Gaiman
#95. I have always felt," he said, "that violence was the last refuge of the incompetent, and empty threats #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Threats quotes by Bernard Goldstein
#96. Many environmental threats in the twenty-first century will coincide with the dying out of the post-World War II baby boomers. Future historians may call them the fortunate generation. Their fortune was to have been born after the discovery of penicillin, to have lived in an age of selfish overconsumption of resources, and to have died before the oil ran out. #Quote by Bernard Goldstein
Threats quotes by Daniel Ellsberg
#97. It is urgent to prevent new U.S. aggression. The time is now for the world to say 'no' to U.S. threats of air attack against Iran, and to the very notion of a nuclear first-use 'option' by America or any other nation. #Quote by Daniel Ellsberg
Threats quotes by Christine A. Courtois
#98. Kaffman (2009) described childhood victimization as a "silent epidemic", and Finkelhor, Turner, Ormrod, and Hamby (2010) reported that children are the most traumatized class of humans around the globe. The findings of these researchers are at odds with the view that children have protected status in most families, societies, and cultures. Instead, Finkelhor reports that children are prime targets and highly vulnerable, due principally to their small size, their physical and emotional immaturity with its associated lack of control, power and resources; and their related dependency on caregivers. They are subjected to many forms of exploitation on an ongoing basis, imposed on them by individuals with greater power, strength, knowledge, and resources, many of whom are, paradoxically and tragically, responsible for their care and welfare. These traumas are interpersonal in nature and involve personal transgression, violation and exploitation of the child by those who rely on the child's lesser physical abilities, innocence, and immaturity to intimidate, bully, confuse, blackmail, exploit, or otherwise coerce.

In the worst-case scenario, a parent or other significant caregiver directly and repeatedly abuses a child or does not respond to or protect a child or other vulnerable individual who is being abused and mistreated and isolates the child from others through threats or with direct violence. Consequently, such an abusive, nonprotective, or malevolently exploitative #Quote by Christine A. Courtois
Threats quotes by Ariel Leve
#99. When you have an erratic, unpredictable, and aggressive parent, a child will detect signs and know when not to say something or know when to hide, so a threat-detecting sense begins to emerge early on. In the end, it wires the individual to be acutely aware and highly reactive to perceived threats. #Quote by Ariel Leve

Threats quotes by Julia Penelope
#101. As for us, we saw the police as a natural catastrophe - like floods, fires, earthquakes. There was nothing you could do about these things except to try and escape them. We had no analysis, no understanding that society could be changed. We simply tried to survive, as ourselves, as kamp girls, natural rebels. We did not feel that the police might not be entitled to hunt us, but accepted them as inevitable.

I was beaten up for suggesting that a woman ask for a lawyer. It was seem as a stupid - even dangerous - suggestion. Fighting back with threats of lawyers would only make the police even angrier at us. But part of me felt that what was happening was unfair and unjust, though I had no idea how things could ever be different.

Melbourne and Adelaide were exactly the same. The public lesbian scene was dangerous and difficult. There were many other New Zealand lesbians around, too. In spite of everything, I loved it. The "mateship" was amazing and close, important enough for any risk. And the freedom to be ourselves, to be real, to be queer, affirmed us.

There were private, closeted scenes too, but they were hard to find and cliquey. They were fearful of being "sprung" by kamps who were too obvious. They were mainly older middle-class women. I knew some of them, learnt many things from them - like how to behave in a nice restaurant if you are taken to dinner. But they too had no sense of anything being able to change - except for the one str #Quote by Julia Penelope
Threats quotes by Christopher I. Beckwith
#102. I would like to emphasize that this book does not belong to any existing view, school, or field, as far as I am aware, so that it does not subscribe to any tradition walled off from the rest of intellectual life. It therefore has no gatekeepers, clad in the traditional metaphorical chain-mail armor and bearing the traditional metaphorical halberd, proclaiming threats to their perceived enemies in archaic languages, dedicated to keeping new knowledge out and stamping out all possible threats to those inside its walls so that the residents can safely continue their traditional beliefs without the necessity of thinking about them. #Quote by Christopher I. Beckwith
Threats quotes by Mark Bowden
#103. I face the world as it is, and cannot stand idle in the face of threats to the American people. For make no mistake, evil does exist in the world. A nonviolent movement could not have stopped Hitler's armies. To say that force is sometimes necessary is not a call to cynicism - it is a recognition of history, the imperfections of man and the limits of reason. #Quote by Mark Bowden
Threats quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#104. But as the arms-control scholar Thomas Schelling once noted, two things are very expensive in international life: promises when they succeed and threats when they fail. #Quote by Fareed Zakaria
Threats quotes by Ayn Rand
#105. Since knowledge, thinking, and rational action are properties of the individual, since the choice to exercise his rational faculty or not depends on the individual, man's survival requires that those who think be free of the interference of those who don't. Since men are neither omniscient nor infallible, they must be free to agree or disagree, to cooperate or to pursue their own independent course, each according to his own rational judgment. Freedom is the fundamental requirement of man's mind.

A rational mind does not work under compulsion; it does not subordinate its grasp of reality to anyone's orders, directives, or controls; it does not sacrifice its knowledge, its view of the truth, to anyone's opinions, threats, wishes, plans, or "welfare." Such a mind may be hampered by others, it may be silenced, proscribed, imprisoned, or destroyed; it cannot be forced; a gun is not an argument. (An example and symbol of this attitude is Galileo.)

It is from the work and the inviolate integrity of such minds - from the intransigent innovators - that all of mankind's knowledge and achievements have come. (See The Fountainhead.) It is to such minds that mankind owes its survival. (See Atlas Shrugged.) #Quote by Ayn Rand
Threats quotes by Wilhelm Reich
#106. That the idea of God represents the conscience, the internalized admonitions and threats from parents and educators, is a well-known fact. What is less well known is the fact that, from an energy point of view, the belief in and the fear of God are sexual excitations which have changed their content and goal. The religious feeling, then, is the same as sexual feeling, except that it is attached to mystical, psychic contents. This explains the return of the sexual element in so many ascetic experiences, such as the nun's delusion that she is the bride of Christ. Such experiences rarely reach the stage of genital consciousness and thus are apt to take place in other sexual channels, such as masochistic martyrdom. #Quote by Wilhelm Reich

Threats quotes by James S.A. Corey
#109. The messages coming back flooded the comm buffers with rage and sorrow, threats of vengeance and offers of aid. Those last were the hardest. New colonies still trying to force their way into local ecosystems so exotic that their bodies could hardly recognize them as life at all, isolated, exhausted, sometimes at the edge of their resources. And what they wanted was to send back help. He listened to their voices, saw the distress in their eyes. He couldn't help, but love them a little bit.

Under the best conditions, disasters and plagues did that. It wasn't universally true. There would always be hoarders and price gouging, people who closed their doors to refugees and left them freezing and starving. But the impulse to help was there too. To carry a burden together, even if it meant having less for yourself. Humanity had come as far as it had in a haze of war, sickness, violence, and genocide. History was drenched in blood. But it also had cooperation and kindness, generosity, intermarriage. The one didn't come without the other. #Quote by James S.A. Corey
Threats quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#110. I don't make threats. Only promises. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Threats quotes by Murray Bookchin
#111. After the Second World War, capitalism underwent an enormous transformation, creating broad new social issues with extraordinary rapidity, issues that went beyond traditional proletarian demands for improved wages, hours, and working conditions: notably, environmental, gender, hierarchical, civic, and democratic issues. Capitalism, in effect, has generalized its threats to humanity, particularly with climatic changes that may alter the very face of the planet, oligarchical institutions of a global scope, and rampant urbanization that radically corrodes the civic life basic to grassroots politics. #Quote by Murray Bookchin
Threats quotes by Susan Faludi
#112. [M]aleness in America," as Margaret Mead wrote, "is not absolutely defined; it has to be kept and reearned every day, and one essential element in the definition is beating women in every game that both sexes play." Nothing seems to crush the masculine petals more than a bit of feminist rain - a few drops are perceived as a downpour. "Men view even small losses of deference, advantages or opportunities as large threats, " wrote William Goode, one of many sociologists to puzzle over the peculiarly hyperbolic male reaction to minuscule improvements to women's rights. #Quote by Susan Faludi
Threats quotes by Napoleon Hill
#113. If Europe had been blessed with more rulers with the human heart and the traits of honesty of ex-king Edward, for the past century, that unfortunate hemisphere now seething with greed, hate, lust, political connivance, and threats of war, would have a different and a better story to tell. A story in which Love and not Hate would rule. In #Quote by Napoleon Hill

Threats quotes by Jerome Groopman
#115. False hope can lead to intemperate choices and flawed decision making. True hope takes into account the real threats that exist and seeks to navigate the best path around them. #Quote by Jerome Groopman
Threats quotes by Peter Beinart
#116. There are real threats but there's a difference between recognizing real threats and an irrational kind of apocalyptic threat. #Quote by Peter Beinart
Threats quotes by Barack Obama

Threats quotes by Beverly Engel
#118. (..) physical behavior that can be considered emotional abuse (..): symbolic violence. This includes intimidating behavior such as slamming doors, kicking a wall, throwing dishes, furniture, or other objects, driving recklessly while the victim is in the car, and destroying or threatening to destroy objects the victim values. Even milder forms of violence such as shaking a fist or finger at the victim, making threatening gestures or faces, or acting like he or she wants to kill the victim carry symbolic threats of violence. #Quote by Beverly Engel
Threats quotes by Clarence Augustus Martin
#119. Policymakers usually justify these measures by using a balancing argument in which the greater good is held to outweigh the suspension of civil liberties. Even in democracies, serious threats to state authority #Quote by Clarence Augustus Martin
Threats quotes by Walter E. Williams
#120. The recognition of the fact that Congress has no resources of its own forces us to acknowledge that the only way Congress can give one American one dollar is to first, through intimidation, threats, and coercion, confiscate that dollar from some other American. If a private citizen did the same thing that Congress does, we would call it an immoral act - namely theft. Acts such as theft that are immoral when done privately do not become moral when done collectively. The moral tragedy that has befallen Americans is our belief that it is okay for government to forcibly use one American to serve the purposes of another #Quote by Walter E. Williams
Threats quotes by Anna Lindh
#121. Still, corruption and oppression are far too common threats to the democratic society. #Quote by Anna Lindh
Threats quotes by Louise Slaughter

Threats quotes by James Comey
#124. We in the FBI have created a malware repository and analysis tool known as the Binary Analysis Characterization and Storage System, or BACSS, which provides near real-time investigative information. BACSS helps us link malware in different jurisdictions and paint a picture of cyber threats worldwide. #Quote by James Comey
Threats quotes by Michelle Bachelet
#125. In today's interdependent world, a threat to one becomes a menace to all. And no state can defeat these challenges and threats alone. #Quote by Michelle Bachelet
Threats quotes by Evelyn Waugh
#126. But I had no mind for these smooth things; instead, fear worked like yeast in my thoughts, and the fermentation brought to the surface, in great gobs of scum, the images of disaster; a loaded gun held carelessly at a stile, a horse rearing and rolling over, a shaded pool with a submerged stake, an elm bough falling suddenly on a still morning, a car at a blind corner; all the catalogue of threats to civilized life rose and haunted me; I even pictured a homicidal maniac mouthing in the shadows, swinging a length of lead pipe. #Quote by Evelyn Waugh
Threats quotes by Og Mandino
#127. For the rest of my life there are two days that will never again trouble me. The first day is yesterday with all its blunders and tears, follies and defeats. Yesterday has passed away, beyond my control forever. The other day is tomorrow with all its pitfalls and threats, its dangers and mystery. Until the sun rises again I have no stake in tomorrow, for it is still unborn. #Quote by Og Mandino
Threats quotes by Pema Chodron
#128. We start by working with the monsters in our mind. Then we develop the wisdom and compassion to communicate sanely with the threats and fears of our daily life. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Threats quotes by Harper Lee
#129. Jack: Atticus, you've never laid a hand on her.
Atticus: I admit that. So far I've been able to get by with threats. Jack, she minds me as well as she can. Doesn't come up to scratch half the time, but she tries.
Jack: That's not the answer.
Atticus: No, the answer is she knows I know she tries. That's what makes the difference. #Quote by Harper Lee

Threats quotes by Woody Allen
#131. Standard mathematics has recently been rendered obsolete by the discovery that for years we have been writing the numeral five backward. This has led to reevaluation of counting as a method of getting from one to ten. Students are taught advanced concepts of Boolean algebra, and formerly unsolvable equations are dealt with by threats of reprisals. #Quote by Woody Allen
Threats quotes by Ryan Murphy
#132. I've gotten death threats, yes. I have. I think anytime you shine a spotlight on homosexuality or minorities and you try and say they are as normal or as worthy as acceptance as others, the people who are on the fringe don't like that and they will come after you. And they have come after me. #Quote by Ryan Murphy
Threats quotes by Mario Cuomo
#133. I have heard the critics. What they are spewing are lies, nothing more. My defense policy calls for an efficient and strong military for our country. We live in dangerous times, but we must remember that we have to defend the United States against dangerous and modern threats. The Cold War is ending. Defense hawks like Senator Nunn need to understand this. #Quote by Mario Cuomo

Threats quotes by Leonard Ravenhill
#135. Satan fools and feigns, blows and bluffs, and we so often take his threats to heart and forget the exceeding greatness of God's power to us. #Quote by Leonard Ravenhill
Threats quotes by Alice Boyes
#136. Although anxiety can sometimes seem like a flaw, it's actually an evolutionary advantage, a hypervigilance system that causes us to pause and scan the environment. Feeling anxious triggers us to start looking out for potential threats. If you detect a potential danger, it's not supposed to be easy for you to stop thinking about that threat. While that's great when you're a caveman worried about protecting your family, it's not as great when you're an employee convinced you're getting fired.
For many of us who suffer from anxiety, our anxiety alarms fire too often when there isn't a good reason to be excessively cautious. Why does this happen? We may have more sensitive anxiety systems. Or we may have been doing things to decrease our anxiety in the short term, such as avoiding things that make us feel anxious, that have actually increased it in the long term.
Having some false anxiety alarms - where you see threats that don't exist or worry about things that don't eventuate - isn't a defect in your system. Think of it in caveman terms: In a life-and-death sense, failing to notice a real threat (termed a false negative) is more of a problem than registering a potential danger that doesn't happen (termed a false positive). Therefore, having some false anxiety alarms is a built-in part of the system, to err on the side of caution. #Quote by Alice Boyes
Threats quotes by Jennifer Velasquez

Threats quotes by Neil Livingstone
#139. The term terrorism is widely misused. It is utilized in its generic sense as a form of shorthand by governments and the media and is applied to a variety of acts and occurrences that approximate terrorism in form but not in substance or, worse yet, that have no real resemblance to terrorism at all. Terrorism, if nothing else, is violence, or threats of violence, but it is not mindless violence, as some observers have charged. Usually, when employed in a political context, it represents a calculated series of actions designed to intimidate and sow fear through-out a target population in an effort to produce a pervasive atmosphere of insecurity, a widespread condition of anxiety. A terrorist campaign that causes a significant threshold of fear among the target population may achieve its aims. In some instances, terrorism is potentially a more effective, especially from a cost-benefit perspective, strategy that conventional or guerrilla warfare, however, the goal of terrorism is not to destroy the opposing side but instead to break its will and force it to capitulate. #Quote by Neil Livingstone
Threats quotes by Bernadette Devlin

Threats quotes by Susan Forward
#141. Most people have a very difficult time handling anger, even their own. When anger is directed at you, it creates an atmosphere of tremendous tension. With the misogynist, the shouting usually includes insults and attacks on you, which make the experience doubly painful. These verbal assaults can be as frightening and demoralizing as implied threats of physical violence. #Quote by Susan Forward
Threats quotes by John Milton

Threats quotes by Charles Krauthammer
#143. Nuclear doctrine consists of thinking the unthinkable. It involves making threats and promising retaliation that is cruel and destructive beyond imagining. But it has its purpose: to prevent war in the first place. #Quote by Charles Krauthammer
Threats quotes by Marcha A. Fox
#144. Psi technology had come far enough to use coercion, if necessary, as well as the usual inter-dimensional cloaking to avoid detection.
And if she refused to come willingly, rather than force the issue he would do everything in his power to make sure she was stuck there for the rest of her life. #Quote by Marcha A. Fox
Threats quotes by Eula Biss
#145. Perhaps what matters," Sunstein muses, "is not whether people are right on the facts, but whether they are frightened." And people do seem to be frightened. We are locking our doors and pulling our children out of public school and buying guns and ritually sanitizing our hands to allay a wide range of fears, most of which are essentially fears of other people. All the while we are also, in our way, reckless. We get intoxicated, from the Latin "to poison," for fun. This contradiction leads Sunstein to worry that regulatory laws based on the priorities of the general public maybe prone to a pattern of "paranoia and neglect." Too much attention may be spent on minimal risks, while too little is paid to pressing threats. Paranoia, the theorist Eve Sedgwick observes, tends to be contagious. She calls it a "strong theory," meaning a wide-ranging, reductive theory that displaces other ways of thinking. And paranoia very frequently passes for intelligence. As Sedgwick observes, "to theorize out of anything but a paranoid critical stance has come to seem naïve, pious, or complaisant." She does not believe that paranoid thinking is necessarily delusional or wrong, but only that there is value to approaches that are less rooted in suspicion. "Paranoia," Sedgwick writes, "knows some things well and others poorly. #Quote by Eula Biss

Threats quotes by Robert   Harris
#148. Young man, I applaud your courage and your sincerity, but I'm afraid you need to learn a few lessons in political reality. It is simply impossible to expect the peoples of Britain and France to take up arms to deny the right of self-determination to ethnic Germans who are trapped in a foreign country they wish to leave. Against that single reality, all else fails. As for what Hitler dreams of doing in the next five years - well, we shall have to wait and see. He's been making these threats ever since Mein Kampf. My objective is clear: to avert war in the short term, and then to try to build a lasting peace for the future - one month at a time, one day at a time, if needs be. The worst act I can possibly commit for the future of mankind would be to walk away from this conference tonight. #Quote by Robert Harris
Threats quotes by James Inhofe
#149. We don't stop and realize that we are dealing with people-the far-left doesn't think we need a military to start with, they really don't. You've heard me say this before, they really believe if all countries would just stand in a circle and unilaterally disarm and hold hands then all threats would go away, they believe that. They would never say that but they do believe that. #Quote by James Inhofe

#154. Our training pushes us to develop a new set of instincts: instead of reacting to danger with a fight-or-flight adrenaline rush, we're trained to respond unemotionally by immediately prioritizing threats and methodically seeking to defuse them.

Threats quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#156. Rape and other acts of violence, up to and including murder, as well as threats of violence, constitute the barrage some men lay down as they attempt to control some women, and fear of that violence limits most women in ways they've gotten so used to they hardly notice–and we hardly address. There are exceptions: last summer someone wrote to me to describe a college class in which the students were asked what they do to stay safe from rape. The young women described the intricate ways they stayed alert, limited their access to the world, took precautions, and essentially thought about rape all the time (while the young men in the class, he added, gaped in astonishment). The chasm between their worlds had briefly and suddenly become visible. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Threats quotes by Jared Diamond

Threats quotes by Sophie Hayes
#161. It's easy to dismiss girls who work on the streets as deadbeats or drug addicts without ever thinking about why they're working as prostitutes. And the truth is that many of them have been trafficked and they work long, exhausting, miserable, soul-destroying hours for men who are cruel and violent. They're constantly afraid, not just because of what might be done to them if they don't do what they're told, but also because of the very real threats that are made against their families and the people they love. #Quote by Sophie Hayes
Threats quotes by Pankaj Mishra
#162. Having completed its conquest of California in 1844, the United States looked across the Pacific for new business opportunities. In 1853, Commodore Matthew Perry sailed into Tokyo (then called Edo) Bay with four men-of-war, and handed over a letter for the Japanese emperor from the American president which began with the ominous words, 'You know that the United States of America now extend from sea to sea.' Denied an audience with the emperor, Perry retreated with subtle threats to return with more firepower if the Japanese did not agree to open their ports to American trade. They refused. He did as he said; and the Japanese succumbed. #Quote by Pankaj Mishra
Threats quotes by Hank Bracker
#163. Adeline is Battered & Threatened

Not knowing the title of this bureaucrat, I addressed him incorrectly as Meine Herrschaften. With this silly fabricated title, I simply tried to explain to him that the corporal was a brave Frontsoldat. My efforts were in vain since he was intent on finding out the corporal's name, and my stalling only made matters worse. "What's his name?" he shouted again and again, this time hitting my breasts and punching me in the stomach, which caused me to vomit all over the floor. It didn't matter to him that my husband was a German soldier fighting for das Vaterland. He continued to beat me and threatened to put me into the terrible prison camp at Schirmeck. Having passed by there recently, the crying and moaning sounds from inside the gates of this prison were still very vivid in my mind. He reached for his telephone and said, "With one call you'll be there if you don't answer me!" "Please, I won't be able to live with myself if I'm the cause of an innocent person's death," I sobbed. I remember him saying, "I remember you! You're the woman from Bischoffsheim who helped with the kindergarten class and did the art work there. You have two little girls, don't you?" How could this man know so much about me? He continued his threats by saying that he would beat my little girls at 3 o'clock every afternoon in the Village center, until I gave him the names he wanted. I formed a mental image of this cruel act, however in spite of this, I firm #Quote by Hank Bracker

Threats quotes by Bill Dedman
#166. The house had another special feature, one that was required for an industrialist in that era. On the second floor, hidden in the second bedroom, known as the family bedroom, was a closet that served as a panic room. This closet had a call box that could be used to alert the police, the fire department, or the hospital. This was no extravagance: Wealthy men received threats of all kinds. In 1889, for example, W.A. received a letter threatening his life if he did not pay the writer $400,000. He didn't pay, but he was prepared for trouble if it arrived. #Quote by Bill Dedman

#169. What's the point of obsessing over cholesterol or bike helmets or even cigarettes when the biggest threats to our children are being released back into society every day? Yes, maybe 'some' of them have reformed, but what about the ones who haven't? Doesn't anyone realize that one 'touch', one 'time' will destroy a child's life ten times faster than a pack-a-day habit? #Quote by Laura Wiess
Threats quotes by Richard J. Aldrich
#170. GCHQ has traveled a long and winding road. That road stretches from the wooden huts of Bletchley Park, past the domes and dishes of the Cold War, and on towards what some suggest will be the omniscient state of the Brave New World. As we look to the future, the docile and passive state described by Aldous Huxley in his Brave New World is perhaps more appropriate analogy than the strictly totalitarian predictions offered by George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four. Bizarrely, many British citizens are quite content in this new climate of hyper-surveillance, since its their own lifestyle choices that helped to create 'wired world' - or even wish for it, for as we have seen, the new torrents of data have been been a source of endless trouble for the overstretched secret agencies. As Ken Macdonald rightly points out, the real drives of our wired world have been private companies looking for growth, and private individuals in search of luxury and convenience at the click of a mouse. The sigint agencies have merely been handed the impossible task of making an interconnected society perfectly secure and risk-free, against the background of a globalized world that presents many unprecedented threats, and now has a few boundaries or borders to protect us. Who, then, is to blame for the rapid intensification of electronic surveillance? Instinctively, many might reply Osama bin Laden, or perhaps Pablo Escobar. Others might respond that governments have used these villains as a convenient ex #Quote by Richard J. Aldrich
Threats quotes by Joseph Stiglitz
#171. There will come a moment when the most urgent threats posed by the credit crisis have eased and the larger task before us will be to chart a direction for the economic steps ahead. This will be a dangerous moment. Behind the debates over future policy is a debate over history-a debate over the causes of our current situation. The battle for the past will determine the battle for the present. So it's crucial to get the history straight. #Quote by Joseph Stiglitz
Threats quotes by Richard Kadrey
#172. I guarantee you I'm not going to forget your voice. We're going to run into each other down the road sometime, and when we do I'm going to pop you apart one rivet at a time."
"There's the monster. Hello, monster. #Quote by Richard Kadrey
Threats quotes by Jayce O'Neal
#173. One of the greatest threats to the impossible is the easily possible. #Quote by Jayce O'Neal
Threats quotes by Joseph Sobran
#174. People who create things nowadays can expect to be prosecuted by highly moralistic people who are incapable of creating anything. There is no way to measure the chilling effect on innovation that results from the threats of taxation, regulation and prosecution against anything that succeeds. We'll never know how many ideas our government has aborted in the name protecting us. #Quote by Joseph Sobran
Threats quotes by K.A. Tucker
#175. It's not funny, Kacey!" I hiss. "That guy forced himself on me!"
She rolls her eyes but then, after a long pause, she sighs. "Yeah, you're right." Reaching over, she pinches the guy's arm without hesitation. "Hey, buddy!"
"You do that to her again and I'll sneak into your room and rip your balls off while you sleep, capisce?" she warns with a pointed finger. Most times my sister's threats involve the mutilation of testicles. #Quote by K.A. Tucker
Threats quotes by Ralph Marston
#176. One of the biggest threats to success is success itself. When you get a little bit ahead, it's all too easy to become complacent and to quickly lose what you have gained. #Quote by Ralph Marston
Threats quotes by Lee Nichols
#177. Since I've become more observant of how bikes and cars interact, I've decided that bicyclists have two major safety threats: cars and themselves. #Quote by Lee Nichols
Threats quotes by Rachel Vincent
#178. Your mortal attachments are like a puppet's strings," Avari said, both hands clasped casually at his back. "One need only pluck the right cord to make the puppet dance." His smile was almost creepier than his threats. "Dance, reaper! #Quote by Rachel Vincent
Threats quotes by Michio Kaku
#179. Sooner or later, we will face a catastrophic threat from space. Of all the possible threats, only a gigantic asteroid hit can destroy the entire planet. If we prepare now, we better our odds of survival. The dinosaurs never knew what hit them. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Threats quotes by Martin Luther
#180. God will not let any violence go unpunished, but He Himself will take vengeance on our enemies and will send home to them what they have deserved by the way they have treated us. As He Himself says (Deut. 23:55): "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay." On the basis of this, St. Paul admonishes the Christians (Rom. 12:19): "Never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God." These words are not only instruction but also consolation, as if He were to say: "Do not take it upon yourselves to avenge yourselves on one another or to speak curses and maledictions. The person that does you harm or injury is interfering with the office of God and sinning against God as gravely as this man has sinned against you. Therefore, keep your fist to yourself. Leave it to the charge of His wrath and punishing, for He will not let it remain unavenged, and His punishment is more severe than you would like. This man has not assailed you but God Himself, and has already fallen into His wrath. He will not escape this. No one ever has. So why get angry with him when the anger of God, immensely greater and more severe than the anger and punishment of the whole world, has already come upon him and has already avenged itself more thoroughly than you ever could? Besides, he has not injured you one tenth as much as he has injured God. When you see him lying under the severe condemnation, why so many curses and threats of vengeance? Rather you should take pity on his plight, and pray for him to be rescue #Quote by Martin Luther
Threats quotes by Colleen Hoover
#181. It seems to be getting worse at night, nocturnal and intense. I'm sure it's mostly in my head, but that doesn't put me at ease, because the things lurking around inside the mind can be just as dangerous as tangible threats. #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Threats quotes by Chellie Pingree
#182. During the summer of 2009, the debate on health care reform was emotional and intense. At its best, it represented the free exchange of ideas that makes this country great. At its worst, it generated death threats and acts of violence. #Quote by Chellie Pingree
Threats quotes by Frank Miller
#183. You don't get it boy ... this isn't a mudhole ... its an operating table. (KRAKKKKK) And I'm the surgeon. #Quote by Frank Miller
Threats quotes by William Hartung
#184. Military force is irrelevant to many of the most urgent threats we face. If we are to solve our myriad domestic problems and revitalize our economy we need to be more selective about our involvement in foreign crises large and small. #Quote by William Hartung
Threats quotes by Paula Hawkins
#185. I know people like to read about serial killers and spies, but most of us will never encounter these things. Sadly, most of the threats we encounter are at home. #Quote by Paula Hawkins
Threats quotes by Erika Johansen
#186. Entire countries would close their borders and build walls to keep out phantom threats. Can you imagine? #Quote by Erika Johansen
Threats quotes by Wayne Gerard Trotman
#187. Death whispers your name to me. #Quote by Wayne Gerard Trotman
Threats quotes by Brian Boitano
#188. From an athlete's perspective, to cancel the Olympics in regards to the threats would be absolutely devastating - especially since the Olympics - it's really about people meeting together through sports and putting aside their countries' differences for that time. #Quote by Brian Boitano
Threats quotes by Lynsay Sands
#189. Alexander also controlled me. Made me do things I didn't want to do." "Isn't that kind of the job of a parent?" Elvi asked, and then said, "Not the controlling part, but making the kid do things they don't want to do. Although," she said thoughtfully, "even the controlling part is something parents have to do too, only it's usually done with rewards, grounding, and threats of punishment rather than straight-up taking control. #Quote by Lynsay Sands
Threats quotes by Stafford Cripps
#190. Violent statements and threats cannot provide a solution to the problem. They can only exacerbate feeling and make a clash of forces inevitable. #Quote by Stafford Cripps
Threats quotes by Archibald Marwizi
#191. The wisdom that comes from being conscious of the real threats to you and your mission will sharpen your deliberateness in decision & choice-making, associations and positioning. #Quote by Archibald Marwizi
Threats quotes by Thomas Gray
#192. The applause of list'ning senates to command, The threats of pain and ruin to despise, To scatter plenty o'er a smiling land, And read their history in a nation's eyes. #Quote by Thomas Gray
Threats quotes by Michael Bassey Johnson
#193. Blackmail threats are e-mails from madmen. #Quote by Michael Bassey Johnson
Threats quotes by Michael S. Horton
#194. Our natural reason tells us that good people finish first and cheaters never prosper. However, believers have no right to God's common grace any more than they do to his saving grace. God remains free to show compassion on whomever he will, even to give breath, health, prosperity, and friends to those who breathe threats against him. #Quote by Michael S. Horton
Threats quotes by Christina Engela
#195. Who is the more courageous? The big, tough gay-basher, or the LGBTI person who faces their threats on a daily basis and carries on being honest about who they are regardless? #Quote by Christina Engela
Threats quotes by Israel Morrow
#196. Women facing sexual violence rarely speak up or call the police because they know what awaits them. Even good men hate it when women express their feelings, often responding with mockery, insults or threats. There's a box in the minds of American men, a box labeled 'Girl Problems,' into which men can stuff any complaint made by women they wish to ignore. #Quote by Israel Morrow
Threats quotes by James Hansen
#197. Jail threats did not dissuade Martin Luther King - and intergenerational justice is a moral issue of comparable magnitude to civil rights. #Quote by James Hansen
Threats quotes by Julian May
#198. They say nothing!" the little captain raged. "They only putrid gunner, ship engineer. I, Ba-Karkar, must speak for all!"

Ogu kicked him again. "Then ask what kind help Asahel wants, untranslatable epithet male. Or no more untranslatable for you! Never again in putrid boomer prison."

Her husband gave a choked gasp. "Cruel female!"

"No more sex, either," she added. #Quote by Julian May
Threats quotes by Julia Golding
#199. He couldn't bring himself to kill me. That shocked me more than his threats. I didn't know what to say to him. #Quote by Julia Golding
Threats quotes by Merlin R. Carothers
#200. We are not to be blind to the very real threats of evil in our lives. Seeing them for what they are only gives us greater cause to praise and thank God for working in them with perfect control and authority. But we are not to be pre-occupied with the appearance of evil around us. See it, admit our helplessness to cope with it in our own strength, then turn to God. God #Quote by Merlin R. Carothers
