advantages

The price which society pays for the law of competition, like the price it pays for cheap comforts and luxuries, is great; but the advantages of this law are also greater still than its cost -- for it is to this law that we owe our wonderful material development, which brings improved conditions in its train. But, whether the law be benign or not, we must say of it: It is here; we cannot evade it; no substitutes for it have been found; and while the law may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it ensures the survival of the fittest in every department.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

To say that a man is your Friend, means commonly no more than this, that he is not your enemy. Most contemplate only what would be the accidental and trifling advantages of Friendship, as that the Friend can assist in time of need by his substance, or his influence, or his counsel. Even the utmost goodwill and harmony and practical kindness are not sufficient for Friendship, for Friends do not live in harmony merely, as some say, but in melody.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Stanley Kowalski:
She moved to the hotel called Flamingo which is a second class hotel that has the advantages of not interfering with the private and social life of the personalities there. Now the Flamingo is used to all kinds of goings-on. But even the management of the Flamingo was impressed by Dame Blanche. And in fact, they were so impressed that they requested her to turn in her room-key for permanently. And this, this happened a couple of weeks before she showed here... The trouble with Dame Blanche was that she couldn't put on her act any more in Oriel because they got wised up. And after two or three dates, they quit and then she goes on to another one, the same old line, the same old act, and the same old hooey. And as time went by, she became the town character, regarded not just as different but downright loco and nuts. She didn't re. sign temporarily because of her nerves. She was kicked out before the spring term ended. And I hate to tell you the reason that step was taken. A seventeen-year-old kid she got mixed up with - and the boy's dad learned about it and he got in touch with the high-school superintendent. And there was practically a town ordinance passed against her.

Nick Carraway:
[First lines]


[narrating]



Nick Carraway:
In my younger and more vulnerable years, my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since. "Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone," he told me, "just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages you've had." While reserving judgments is a matter of infinite hope, I've come to admit that my tolerance of human behavior has its limits. Gatsby, the man who gives his name to this story, represented everything for which I have an unaffected scorn. And yet there was something gorgeous about him. Some hightened sensitivity to the promises of life, a romantic readiness such as I've never found in any other person and which it is not likely I'll ever find again.

Himself - Host:
Now, you may have some questions concerning the validity and integrity of the organization. Well, no less than the Internal Revenue Service of the United States government conducted a review of Scientology. The most thorough investigation of any church in its history. Over a period of many years, they examined millions of pages of church documents, and financial records. They studied every aspect of the religion, and its corporate and ecclesiastical structure. And their findings? The IRS determined that Scientology *is* a bona fide religion. That the churches of Scientology, and their related social betterment organizations, operate *exclusively* for religious, charitable, and educational purposes. That they benefit the *public*, rather than the interests of private individuals. And that no part of their income goes to the benefit of any individual or noncharitable entity. It is likely that Scientology was scrutinized more deeply than any other church in history. And it passed that review with flying colors, gaining full religious and charitable recognition. In doing so, the IRS granted the church, and all its affiliated organizations, full tax exemption. In fact, you'll be happy to know, even your donations are tax deductible. Just like every religion. Now that you know the factual and legal standing of the church, you may well ask the question, "What are the advantages of Dianetics and Scientology for me?" So, let's ask some people.
