The ceaseless, senseless demand for original scholarship in a number of fields, where only erudition is now possible, has led either to sheer irrelevancy, the famous knowing of more and more about less and less, or to the development of a pseudo-scholarship which actually destroys its object.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The acquiring of culture is the development of an avid hunger for knowledge and beauty.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

No letters after your name are ever going to be a total guarantee of competence any more than they are a guarantee against fraud. Improving competence involves continuing professional development ... That is the really crucial thing, not just passing an examination.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The consuming desire of most human beings is deliberately to plant their whole life in the hands of some other person. I would describe this method of searching for happiness as immature. Development of character consists solely in moving toward self-sufficiency.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All that is valuable in human society depends upon the opportunity for development accorded the individual.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I can see only one safe rule for the historian: that he should recognize in the development of human destinies the play of the contingent and the unforeseen.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Shame and guilt are noble emotions essential in the maintenance of civilized society, and vital for the development of some of the most refined and elegant qualities of human potential.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The higher mental development of woman, the less possible it is for her to meet a congenial male who will see in her, not only sex, but also the human being, the friend, the comrade and strong individuality, who cannot and ought not lose a single trait of her character.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What breadth, what beauty and power of human nature and development there must be in a woman to get over all the palisades, all the fences, within which she is held captive!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Labor is the instituted means for the methodical development of all our powers under the direction and control of the will.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A child-like man is not a man whose development has been arrested; on the contrary, he is a man who has given himself a chance of continuing to develop long after most adults have muffled themselves in the cocoon of middle-aged habit and convention.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When the Irishman is found outside of Ireland in another environment, he very often becomes a respected man. The economic and intellectual conditions that prevail in his own country do not permit the development of individuality. No one who has any self-respect stays in Ireland, but flees afar as though from a country that has undergone the visitation of an angered Jove.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The word change, so dear to our Europe, has been given a new meaning: it no longer means a new stage of coherent development (as it was understood by Vico, Hegel or Marx), but a shift from one side to another, from front to back, from the back to the left, from the left to the front (as understood by designers dreaming up the fashion for the next season).More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You all know that even when women have full rights, they still remain fatally downtrodden because all housework is left to them. In most cases housework is the most unproductive, the most barbarous and the most arduous work a woman can do. It is exceptionally petty and does not include anything that would in any way promote the development of the woman.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If Socialism can only be realized when the intellectual development of all the people permits it, then we shall not see Socialism for at least five hundred years.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
By virtue of being born to humanity, every human being has a right to the development and fulfillment of his potentialities as a human being.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Men are only as good as their technical development allows them to be.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Science is intimately integrated with the whole social structure and cultural tradition. They mutually support one other -- only in certain types of society can science flourish, and conversely without a continuous and healthy development and application of science such a society cannot function properly.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Problems do not go away. They must be worked through or else they remain, forever a barrier to the growth and development of the spirit.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Premature development of the powers of both mind and body leads to an early grave.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Next to reasoning, the greatest handicap to the optimum development of Man lies in the fact that this planet is just barely habitable. Its minimum temperatures are too low, and its maximum temperatures too high. Its day is not long enough, and its night is too long. The disposition of its water and earth is distinctly unfortunate (the existence of the Mediterranean Sea in the place where we find it is perhaps the unhappiest accident in the whole firmament). These factors encourage depression, fear, war, and lack of vitality. They describe a planet, which is by no means perfectly devised for the nurturing or for the perpetuation of a higher intelligence.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude and humility. All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and charitable, more worthy to be called the children of God... and it is through sorrow and suffering, toil and tribulation, that we gain the education that we come here to acquire and which will make us more like our Father and Mother in heaven.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If we let things go on, that could break the process of growth and development that's going on in our country.More [05/18/2006 12:05:00]
“personal, psychological development project.”More [07/09/2006 12:07:00]
“The skill development came along but we never quite came together as a team. It could have been because of the small injuries and other things along the way, but things just never clicked.”More [10/31/2006 12:10:00]
“We're thrilled to join Audi Sport as a technical development partner, and delighted that together we've accomplished a 'first' for diesel technology. This partnership demonstrates our commitment to providing innovative solutions to the automotive industry.”More [10/31/2006 12:10:00]
“I come from the east end of London where the main Olympic Park will be, so I am really excited by the plans for the development of the area.”More [11/13/2006 12:11:00]
The basic idea underlying religion is to create an atmosphere for the spiritual development of the individual. This being the situation, it is clear that you cannot develop your personality at all in Hinduism.More [07/04/2007 12:07:00]
Unlike a drop of water which loses its identity when it joins the ocean, man does not lose his being in the society in which he lives. Man’s life is independent. He is born not for the development of the society alone, but for the development of his self.More [07/04/2007 12:07:00]
We have always had a long-term commitment to China and even more so to the development of its Internet industry, We’re confident that Yahoo! is putting its resources behind the right management team, which operates according to similar values as we do, and shares the same vision for providing the most essential and relevant services to consumers and businesses.More [08/16/2007 12:08:00]
After the Second Vatican Council, the impression arose that the pope really could do anything in liturgical matters, especially if he were acting on the mandate of an ecumenical council. Eventually, the idea of the givenness of the liturgy, the fact that one cannot do with it what one will, faded from the public consciousness of the West. In fact, the First Vatican Council had in no way defined the pope as an absolute monarch. On the contrary, it presented him as the guarantor of obedience to the revealed Word. The pope’s authority is bound to the Tradition of faith, and that also applies to the liturgy. It is not ‘manufactured’ by the authorities. Even the pope can only be a humble servant of its lawful development and abiding integrity and identity. . . . The authority of the pope is not unlimited; it is at the service of Sacred Tradition. . . . The greatness of the liturgy depends - we shall have to repeat this frequently - on its unspontaneity.More [11/21/2007 12:11:00]
So one would hope that China’s investment would be broader and that it would contribute not only to China’s development and growth … but it would also contribute to Africa’s growth and development.More [12/11/2007 12:12:00]
Marxism is an interpretation of history which explains the progress of society as a product of the expansion of the forces of production of the material means of life, that is, the development of economy.More [01/04/2008 12:01:00]
Social democracy seeks and finds the ways, and particular slogans, of the workers' struggle only in the course of the development of this struggle, and gains directions for the way forward through this struggle alone.More [02/25/2008 12:02:00]
We need to promote development that does not destroy our environment.More [02/25/2008 12:02:00]
Lawrence Robertson: [realizing Sonny could disobey the three laws] Susan, we look to robots for protection! For God's sake! Do you have any idea what this one robot could do. Completely shatter human faith in robotics. What if the public knew? Just imagine the mass recalls all because of an irrational paranoia and prejudice.
Detective Del Spooner: [sneezes] I'm sorry, I'm allergic to bullshit.
Lawrence Robertson: Hey, let's just be clear. There is no conspiracy. What this is, is one old man's one mistake.
[turning back to Calvin]
Lawrence Robertson: Susan, just be logical. Your life's work has been the development and integration of robots. But whatever you feel, just think. Is one robot worth the loss of all that we've gained? You tell me what has to be done. You tell me.
Susan Calvin: [emotionally] We have to destroy it. I'll do it myself.
Lawrence Robertson: OK.
Detective Del Spooner: I get it. Somebody gets out of line around here, you just kill them?More [04/07/2008 12:04:00]
And then we've got Blades of Glory, and we've got Brothers Solomon, and I've got a script in development with this guy Chuck Martin who used to write on Arrested, and, you know, we have a few things in various stages of development.More [05/05/2008 12:05:00]
Arrested Development opened a lot of doors for me.More [05/05/2008 12:05:00]
No, Arrested Development was such an amazing experience in every way, and you know it was very unique in that it was a show that received a lot of critical acclaim, and yet we didn't ever achieve the ratings that we wanted.More [05/05/2008 12:05:00]
High tech companies that focus on research, development and production will learn that they can be the perfect complement to our world-renowned agriculture heritage.More [08/09/2008 12:08:00]
But no nation can base its survival and development on luck and prayers alone while its leadership fritters away every available opportunity for success and concrete achievement.More [09/22/2008 12:09:00]
Our approach to economic development must be modern, focused and in tune with the global trend.More [09/22/2008 12:09:00]
The return of democracy in our land has indeed thrown the problems of development into bolder relief.More [09/22/2008 12:09:00]

The development of man hasn't just suddenly stopped. It's going on all the time. In the last hundred years, everything has speeded up. The world has changed out of all recognition, and human beings have changed with it.

Well gentlemen, now that the moment has come to bid you farewell, I congratulate both you, Doctor, and you, Professor, on your brilliant work in the development of the submarine tracking system. Thanks primarily to you, I am happy to say that the first phase of our operation has met with considerable success. I have instructed my assistant to have paid into your Swiss bank account the sum of ten million dollars each.

Prof. Markovitz:
Thank you, sir.

Dr. Bechmann:
Thank you indeed.

And that, I think, concludes our business. Before you go however, I very much regret to inform you that a dangerous development has recently been brought to my notice. Someone has been attempting to sell the plans of our tracking project to competing world powers; someone intimately associated with the project.

Major Eaton:
Doctor Jones, we've heard a lot about you.

Have you.

Major Eaton:
Professor of Archeology. Expert on the occult and how does one say it? Obtainer of rare antiquities.

That's one way of saying it. Why don't you sit down you'll be more comfortable.

Colonel Musgrove:
Yes, you're a man of many talents.

Major Eaton:
Now, you studied under Professor Ravenwood at the University of Chicago.

Yes, I did.

Major Eaton:
You have no idea of his present whereabouts?

Only rumors really. Somewhere in Asia, I think. I haven't really spoken to him in 10 years. We were friends once but we had a bit of a falling out, I'm afraid.

Colonel Musgrove:
Now, Doctor Jones, you must understand that this is all completely confidential.

I understand.

Colonel Musgrove:
Yesterday afternoon our European section intercepted a German communique that was sent from Cairo to Berlin.

Major Eaton:
You see for the last two years the Nazis have had teams of archeologists running around the world looking for all sorts of religious artifacts. Hitler's gone nuts on the subject. He's crazy. He's obsessed with the occult. And right now, apparently, there is some kind of German archeological dig going on in the desert outside Cairo.

Colonel Musgrove:
Now we have some information here but we can't make anything out of it and maybe you can. "Tannis development proceeding. Acquire headpeace, Staff of Ra, Abner Ravenwood, US."

The Nazis have discovered Tannis!

Major Eaton:
Now just what does that mean to you? Tannis.

Tannis is one of the possible resting places of the Lost Ark.

Colonel Musgrove:
The Lost Ark?

Yeah, the Ark of the Covenant. The chest the Hebrews used to carry the 10 Commandments around in.

Major Eaton:
Alright, now, what do you mean the 10 Commandments, you talking about THE 10 Commandments?

Yes, the actual 10 Commandments the original stone tablets that Moses came down out of Mount Horeb and smashed if you believe in that sort of thing. Didn't you guys ever go to Sunday School? Look, the Hebrews took the broken pieces and put them into the Ark. When they settled in Cainan they put the Ark in a place called The Temple of Solomon where it stayed for many years. 'Till all of the sudden, whoosh, it was gone.

Major Eaton:

Nobody knows where or when.

Lisa Vanette:
Do you know about the Knight Sabers?

Sylia Stingray:
Uh-huh, I've heard about them.

Lisa Vanette:
Why do you suppose they fight boomers? I hear they take their clients for lots of money, but... I wonder... if they're supposed to be the good guys.

Sylia Stingray:
What do you think?

Lisa Vanette:
I don't know... But fighting boomers means taking on Genom, doesn't it? For a mere four people to take on such a large corporation is just... well... Genom makes a lot of things that make wars possible. But they also make boomers that are useful to society. And if the Knight Sabers actually defeated Genom, the world woudl come to a halt. What I want to know is, just what are the Knight Sabers trying to accomplish?

Sylia Stingray:
Well... what do you think would happen if Genom were to take over the world?

Lisa Vanette:
I guess the cities would be wall-to-wall boomers.

Sylia Stingray:
In which case, there'd be no place for we humans, right? For every good thing Genom does for the world, it also does something bad. I don't think the Knight Sabers could keep fighting if they only did nice, clean jobs. The development of boomers for military applications also led to boomers that were useful to society. I think the world would be thrown into chaos if this balance wasn't carefully mantained. Maybe the Knight Sabers are a part of that balance. To continue such activities would require a great deal of money, too... or so I would imagine.

When we commissioned the Schmectel Corporation to research this precise event sequence scenario, it was determined that the continual stockpiling and development of our nuclear arsenal was becoming self-defeating. A weapon unused is a useless weapon.
