possibilities

A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Now the whole dizzying and delirious range of sexual possibilities has been boiled down to that one big, boring, bulimic word. RELATIONSHIP.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers. In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

As a poet and writer, I deeply love and I deeply hate words. I love the infinite evidence and change and requirements and possibilities of language; every human use of words that is joyful, or honest or new, because experience is new... But as a Black poet and writer, I hate words that cancel my name and my history and the freedom of my future: I hate the words that condemn and refuse the language of my people in America.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The cycle of the machine is now coming to an end. Man has learned much in the hard discipline and the shrewd, unflinching grasp of practical possibilities that the machine has provided in the last three centuries: but we can no more continue to live in the world of the machine than we could live successfully on the barren surface of the moon.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The potential of the average person is like a huge ocean unsailed, a new continent unexplored, a world of possibilities waiting to be released and channeled toward some great good.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There are many who are living far below their possibilities because they are continually handing over their individualities to others. Do you want to be a power in the world? Then be yourself. Be true to the highest within your soul and then allow yourself to be governed by no customs or conventionalities or arbitrary man-made rules that are not founded on principle.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

“In film, the possibilities are greater. You can go beyond the fourth wall. You can go to these incredible locations and you're put into circumstances that are physically sensuous. It sometimes requires much more of a physical talent.”More [09/01/2006 12:09:00]

Wigram: Were you surprised when you heard that Admiral Donitz had changed the weather code?
Tom Jericho: Well, the Germans were always nervous about Enigma. That was the reason Shark came on in the first place...
Wigram: But the Germans believe Enigma's supposed to be infallible, because it would take people a thousand years to figure out the settings for one day, and they are changed every day. But we don't use people for that, do we, Mr. Jericho?
Tom Jericho: No.
Wigram: No. And that is the secret inside the secret: your thinking machines. Day and night, clackety-clack, programmed with a menu provided by your amazing brain, narrowing down the infinite possibilities to just a few million. And if anyone tells the Germans about that... there goes the war.More [05/01/2007 12:05:00]
Raoul Duke: But our trip was different. It was to be a classic affirmation of everything right and true in the national character. A gross physical salute to the fantastic possibilities of life in this country. But only for those with true grit.
[to hitchhiker]
Raoul Duke: And we are chock full of that, man.
Dr. Gonzo: Damn right!More [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
where happiness and happily ever-after doesn’t begin at size 0 and end at size 6 and where there are possibilities for love and happiness and professional success and great friends and a wonderful life even if you don’t look like one of those girls in the magazines.More [07/23/2007 12:07:00]
Wyeth: That thing with the collar... how did you do that?
Bart: Like my saint of a mum used to say, "Get 'em young, and the possibilities are endless."
Wyeth: I thought it was the Jesuits who said that.
Bart: Probably got it from my mum.More [08/16/2007 12:08:00]
Infirmier: So you essentially turned a man into a dog.
Bart: Like my saint of a mum used to say: Get 'em young enough and the possibilities are endless.
Infirmier: Let me see if I've got this straight. Now I don't pay you, you take his collar off.
Bart: Correctimundo.
Infirmier: You take his collar off, he beats us all to death.
Bart: Now who's the bright penny!
Infirmier: So it seems it's in my best interest to keep that collar on, then.More [08/16/2007 12:08:00]
Dr. Taney: Pathological states can induce abnormal strength. Accelerated motor performance. Now, for example, say a 90 pound woman sees her child pinned under the wheel of a truck. Runs out and lifts the wheels a half a foot up off the ground - you've heard the story - same thing here. Same principle, I mean.
Chris MacNeil: So what's wrong with her?
Dr. Klein: We still think the temporal lobe.
Chris MacNeil: Oh what are you talking about, for Chrissakes? Did you see her or not? She's acting like she's fucking out of her mind, psychotic, like a... split personality or...
Dr. Taney: There haven't been more than a hundred authentic cases of so-called split personality, Mrs. MacNeil. Now I know the temptation is to leap to psychiatry. But any reasonable psychiatrist would exhaust the somatic possibilities first.
Chris MacNeil: So, what's next?
Dr. Taney: A pneumoencephalogram, I would think. Pin down that lesion. It will involve another spinal.
Chris MacNeil: Oh, Christ.
Dr. Taney: What we missed in the EEG and the arteriograms could conceivably turn up there. At least, it would eliminate certain other possibilities.More [10/22/2007 12:10:00]
“a judicial philosophy that ignores the possibilities of racial discrimination or gender discrimination, a political philosophy that typically errs on the side of the powerful.”More [02/14/2008 12:02:00]
[Diane has brought Steve into the ship's darkroom, ostensibly to demonstrate her competence in the photographic arts. Impulsively, he grabs her and kisses her passionately]



Diane Templeton:
[flirtatiously] Does this come under the heading of science or art? Whichever it is, you have definite possibilities.


[He releases her from the clutch and spins her around. Her tone changes to anger]



Diane Templeton:
Disappointed?



Steve 'Mac' McCreary:
[snarling] Yeah.



Diane Templeton:
Why?



Steve 'Mac' McCreary:
I wanted to find out if you were the sort of woman I figured ya, and y'are.



Diane Templeton:
I suppose you'd've liked it better if I'd slapped your face.



Steve 'Mac' McCreary:
Yeah, I would!


[she immediately slaps him hard. After a moment of shock, he smiles]



Diane Templeton:
Why, good heavens! You do know how to smile!


[they are interrupted by a knock at the door; Steve is being summoned by the skipper]



Steve 'Mac' McCreary:
[as he leaves] Maybe I'm wrong at that. You've got a few possibilities yourself.

Johnnie Aysgarth:

Jean Brodie:
[after Miss Mackay has read a supposedly incriminating letter, written by Sandy and Jenny] There's very little for me to say, Miss Mackay in the face of your extraordinary prejudice and hostility.



Miss Mackay:
Miss Brodie, I am not asking you to say anything. I am asking... demanding... that you put your signature, your own signature, on a letter of resignation which I have prepared for you.



Jean Brodie:
I will not resign.



Miss Mackay:
If you will not resign, you will force me to dismiss you.



Jean Brodie:
I will not resign and you will not dismiss me, Miss Mackay. You will not use the excuse of that pathetic, that humorous document to blackmail me! Mr. Lowther, you are a witness to this. Miss Mackay has made totally unsupported accusations against my name and yours. If she has one authentic shred of evidence, just one, let her bring it forth! Otherwise, if one more word of this outrageous calumny reaches my ears, I shall sue! I shall take Miss Mackay to the public courts and I shall sue the trustees of Marcia Blaine, if they support her. I will not stand quietly by and allow myself to be crucified by a woman whose fetid frustration has overcome her judgment! If scandal is to your taste, Miss Mackay, I shall give you a feast!



Miss Mackay:
Miss Brodie!



Jean Brodie:
I am a teacher! I am a teacher, first, last, always! Do you imagine that for one instant I will let that be taken from me without a fight? I have dedicated, sacrificed my life to this profession. And I will not stand by like an inky little slacker and watch you rob me of it and for what? For what reason? For jealousy! Because I have the gift of claiming girls for my own. It is true I am a strong influence on my girls. I am proud of it! I influence them to be aware of all the possibilities of life... of beauty, honor, courage. I do not, Miss Mackay, influence them to look for slime where it does not exist! I am going. When my class convenes, my pupils will find me composed and prepared to reveal to them the succession of the Stuarts. And on Sunday, I will go to Cramond to visit Mr. Lowther. We are accustomed, bachelor and spinster, to spend our Sundays together in sailing and walking the beaches and in the pursuit of music. Mr. Lowther is teaching me to play the mandolin. Good day, Miss Mackay.

A democracy, Mr. Cromwell, was a Greek drollery based on the foolish notion that there are extraordinary possibilities in very ordinary people.

[Kirk has just gotten command back of the Enterprise]



Lt. Cmdr. Hikaru Sulu:
He wanted her back. He got her.



Alien Ensign:
And Captain Decker? He's been with this ship every minute of her refitting.



Lieutenant Commander Nyota Uhura:
Ensign, the possibilities of our returning from this mission in one piece may... have just doubled.

Humphrey:
So, just listen. Now, did I or did I not... do... vaginal... juices?



Pupils:
Mmm. Mmm. Yes, sir. Yes, sir.



Humphrey:
Name two ways of getting them flowing, Watson.



Watson:
R - rubbing the clitoris, sir?



Humphrey:
What's wrong with a kiss, boy? Hmm? Why not start her off with a nice kiss? You don't have to go leaping straight for the clitoris like a bull at a gate. Give her a kiss, boy.



Wymer:
Suck the nipple, sir?



Humphrey:
Good. Good. Well done, Wymer.



Pupil:
Uh, stroking the thighs, sir.



Humphrey:
Yes. Yes, I suppose so. Hmm?



Pupil:
Oh, sir. Biting the neck.



Humphrey:
Yes. Good. Nibbling the earlobe, uhh, kneading the buttocks, and so on and so forth. So, we have all these possibilities before we stampede towards the clitoris, Watson.



Watson:
Yes, sir. Sorry, sir.

Sol Robeson:
The Ancient Japanese considered the Go board to be a microcosm of the universe. Although when it is empty it appears to be simple and ordered, in fact, the possibilities of gameplay are endless. They say that no two Go games have ever been alike. Just like snowflakes. So, the Go board actually represents an extremely complex and chaotic universe.

Narrator:
There is a period in every child's life when a cowboy on horseback is just about the most exciting vision imaginable. The forbidding landscape and the vast possibilities of the West has beckoned young and old for generations and as long as directors like John Ford and actor John Wayne were there to wrest poetry, beauty and drama from simple stories, the Western worked its magic on adults, too.

Eddie:
[reading Shakespeare's 148 sonnet] "O me! What eyes hath love put in my head/ Which have no correspondence with true sight?/ Or if they have where is my judgment fled/ That censures falsely what they see aright?" It's beautiful.



Paige:
It's gibberish. I have no idea what he's saying.



Eddie:
Well, he's saying that love is magical, and that it makes people look at each other in an unspoiled way, without judgment.



Paige:
Why doesn't he just say that? Why can't people just say what they mean?



Eddie:
Well, people rarely say what they mean. That's the interesting part, is... is what's going on underneath the surface. See, take line. The sun itself sees not until heaven clears. What does that mean to you?



Paige:
That the sun can't shine when it's cloudy.



Eddie:
No. You're being too literal. See, don't just go for the obvious. See, all these words, they have multiple meanings, and you have to explore the possibilities and then make your choice. See, like the word "sun", that could mean the actual sun, or it can mean light. But then "light" can mean knowledge or reason.



Paige:
That could go on forever.



Eddie:
Yes. Yes, it could. But I think in this case it means reason. And then "heaven" may refer to the pearly gates, or it could mean a state of being, you know, like being happy or in love. So now read it again, taking in all the possibilities, and tell me what you think it means.



Paige:
The sun itself sees not until heaven clears. I guess it means that love blinds you. And when you're in love, you can't think reasonably.



Eddie:
Do you agree?



Paige:
Yeah... I mean, it's just a poem.



Eddie:
Yeah... Yeah, it's just a poem.
