rely

Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thouMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The whore is despised by the hypocritical world because she has made a realistic assessment of her assets and does not have to rely on fraud to make a living. In an area of human relations where fraud is regular practice between the sexes, her honesty is regarded with a mocking wonder.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Buddy: What sort of mood do you have to be in for that?
Daphne: Depressed.
Buddy: And what, being groped by a dozen guys at a bachelor party cheers you up?
Daphne: They're harmless... it's just...
Buddy: What?
Daphne: I know what it's like to be the popular girl for an hour.
Buddy: Daphne...
Daphne: This...
Buddy: Today?
Daphne: All of it, every time... makes me... less invested with life at school, or even at home. It's... mine. Just mine. And because of it I don't have to play the game. I don't have to pretend to be friends with people that I hate. I don't need to rely on anyone, not even my parents. It's a little bit of a "fuck you" that helps me get through the day.More [10/14/2005 12:10:00]
John: Hello, Michael. I want to play a game. So far, in what mostly could be called your life, you have made a living watching others. Society would call you an informant. A rat. A snitch. I call you unworthy of the body you possess. Of the life you've been given. Now we will see if you are willing to look inward, rather than outward, to give up the one thing you rely on in order to go on living. The device around your neck is a death mask. The mask is on a string timer. If you do not locate the key in time, the mask will close. Think of it like a Venus Flytrap. What you're looking at right now is your own body, not more than two hours ago. Don't worry, you're sound asleep, and can't feel a thing. Taking into account that you are at a great disadvantage here, I am going to give you a hint as to where I have hidden the key. So listen carefully. The hint is this: It's right in front of your eye. How much blood would you shed to stay alive, Michael? Live or die... Make your choice.More [11/01/2005 12:11:00]
Jim: [as Father Brown, he is asked to give a speech to the town. He reads from a brochure stuck in his Bible that says "An Encounter with a Bear"] Have you ever felt alone, with no one to rely on? Danger on every hand, in a world fraught with danger, and when I looked into my pocket, what did I find? What did I find?
[flips the brochure over - it's an ad for guns]
Jim: Nothing. There's nothing there. It's all in your head. Look, they can take the money from you. They can take the position from you. People turn their back on you. Everything happens to everybody! And you ain't gonna find nothing in your pocket to stave it off. Nothing can stave it off! Power doesn't do it. Because you never have enough. Money? I don't know. You know anyone who's got enough money?
[holds up his Bible]
Jim: Is God good? I don't know. All I know is... something may give you comfort. And maybe you deserve it. If it comforts you to believe in God, then you do it. That's your business.More [12/14/2005 12:12:00]
I just feel, in life, I'm searching for something I can rely on, something that's constant and something that's going to guide me through. And I felt that the Northern Star is a very beautiful image of that.More [03/20/2006 12:03:00]

Let's face facts, this is visual medium, there's a very high premium put on people who are good-looking. But the minute you rely on that you get yourself in trouble. You certainly don't make a career out of that anymore as an actor.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
Not that I think improv is bad, but I just rely more on a character than trying to think of something to say. If something comes out, it comes out.More [06/26/2006 12:06:00]
“I'm pretty organized. I'm pretty controlling. I don't have big plans or designs. But I don't rely on a Palm Pilot or help or other technology-no! I'm barely good with emailing and a fax machine. I organize things in my head; I have a pretty good memory, so that helps me out a lot.”More [08/06/2006 12:08:00]

“In hindsight, you think, yeah there are things you could have done. But at the time we had multiple sources telling us the information and we had people in positions of authority ... telling us the information was correct. When you have officials telling you something and eyewitnesses telling you something, at some point you have to rely on that information.”More [11/16/2006 12:11:00]
I wouldn't say terrified of it. I mean I'd probably be terrified if I felt I had to rely on it, but it's something I'm doing electively.More [11/27/2006 12:11:00]
“All I know is, I don't do a lot of analysis. I know those words have to move me. I rely on the author. I don't want actors reasoning with me about 'motivation' and all that bull. All I want 'em to do is learn the goddamn lines and don't bump into each other.”More [12/28/2006 12:12:00]
I probably rely on the newspaper for the news. But it isn't consistent, it has a lot to do with my schedule at the time.More [01/17/2007 12:01:00]

Jack Stanfield: I wanna know what you want. And I wanna know now.
Bill Cox: Beth, I am sorry about all of this. I... I am, but well, there we are. Uh. I need you to talk to your husband. He listens to you. I need you to make him understand that if he doesn't do exactly as I ask, I will kill you and your two children. But if you can make him listen Beth, if you can make him do what I want, you'll all walk away from this unpleasantness, unscathed. Not because I'm a nice man, simply because there'll be no reason for me to hurt you. Make sense? Can I rely on your cooperation?

Capt. Ramsey: You do qualify your remarks. If someone asked me if we should bomb Japan, a simple "Yes." By all means sir, drop that fucker, twice! I don't mean to suggest that you're indecisive, Mr Hunter. Not at all. Just, uh... complicated. 'course, that's the way the Navy wants you. Me, they wanted simple.
Hunter: Well, you certainly fooled them, sir.
Capt. Ramsey: [Chuckles] Be careful there, Mr Hunter. It's all I've got to rely on, being a simple-minded son of a bitch. Rickover gave me my command, a checklist, a target and a button to push. All I gotta know is how to push it, they tell me when. They seem to want you to know why.
Hunter: I would hope they'd want us all to know why, sir.More [07/16/2007 12:07:00]
Graduation Speaker: High school is like the training wheels for the bicycle of real life. It is a time for young people to explore different fields of interest and to hopefully learn from their experiences. In coming to terms with my own personal setback, I've learned that I don't need to rely on drugs and alcohol, and that I'm very lucky that more people besides myself and Carrie weren't injured in the accident. And I've learned that to overcome life's obstacles you need faith, hope and, above all, a sense of humor.More [12/18/2007 12:12:00]
Ratigan: Ah, the uniforms! Oh, Fidget, I knew I could rely on you. Now, you didn't forget anything?

Ratigan: What's wrong?
Fidget: The list... but I know I...
Ratigan: Where's the list?
Fidget: The list, yeah, yeah yeah. Well, you see it was like this. I was in the toy store getting uniforms when I heard a "aroo aroo".
Ratigan: [irritated] You're not coming through.
Fidget: A dog came! I ran! I had baby bonnet, girl in bag, and Basil ch-chased me.
Ratigan: What? Basil on the case? Why, you gibbering, little... hm... hm... HMMMMM!
[restrains himself as Fidget cowers. Then suddenly calms down]
Ratigan: [chuckles] Oh, my dear Fidget. You have been hanging upside down too long.
[lovingly scooping up Fidget he walks toward Felicia's lair]
Fidget: You mean you're not mad? I'm glad you're taking it so well.
[Ratigan rings the dinner bell to summon Felicia]
Fidget: [as he's being eaten] Aaaah! Not me, you idiot! No, stop, you stupid furball! Open up! Open up! You're hurting my wings!

Millie: What have you heard?
John: It's all over the place.
Millie: Is it? Is it really?

Livia:
I have asked Claudius to be present at these ceremonies, and to be my guest at dinner tonight.



Caligula:
But grandmother, think of his table manners.



Livia:
Be silent, you impudent puppy. You take your uncle for a fool, but he's not. I sometimes think he pretends to be one, so as to make fools of us. Far from being a fool, he's the last decent man left alive in Rome. One can rely on him. If he makes a promise he keeps it. And when he swears to the truth, it is the truth. Am I right, Claudius?

Elm Tree:
Oh, this is going to be jolly fun!

German Officer:
He's quite sure.



Admiral Canaris:
The FĂĽhrer, of course, has certain advantages over mere intelligence officers like you and me, Frederick. He has his intuition, whereas we have to rely on our brains. And he's sure God is on his side.

Arthur Seaton:
Aye but people like that should be careful though, never to pick on the wrong bloke. I saw a fight like that once, this was with two soldiers an' all. They set on to a bloke and he wiped the floor with the both of them. It was horrible, blood all over the place, I had to turn me 'ead away.

Good evening, I'm Robin Leach. The producers of Sledge Hammer! have asked me to explain tonight's episode. Let me be frank - it is an attempt to boost ratings. There are many ways to do this: better scripts, more warmth and big-name guest stars. But, we're desperate. So on tonight's episode, we're gonna to rely on four sure-fire ratings grabbers: sex, violence, rock music, and, best of all, a cliffhanger ending that will keep our viewers glued to the edge of their seats until next season. Thus, ensuring there will be a next season. Trust me. I know what I'm doing.

Woods?

Borrowed. The important thing to remember about The Transcendentalists, is that while self-reliance is a most admirable trait, Thoreau wasn't really all that alone out there by Waldon pond. He had neighbour's, friends, people he could rely on. We should all be so lucky.

Supreme Chancellor:
Remember back to your early teachings. "All who gain power are afraid to lose it." Even the Jedi.



Anakin Skywalker:
The Jedi use their power for good.



Supreme Chancellor:
Good is a point of view, Anakin. The Sith and the Jedi are similar in almost every way, including their quest for greater power.



Anakin Skywalker:
The Sith rely on their passion for their strength. They think inward, only about themselves.



Supreme Chancellor:
And the Jedi don't?



Anakin Skywalker:
The Jedi are selfless... they only care about others.



Supreme Chancellor:
Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis "the wise"?



Anakin Skywalker:
No.



Supreme Chancellor:
I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.



Anakin Skywalker:
He could actually save people from death?



Supreme Chancellor:
The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural.



Anakin Skywalker:
What happened to him?



Supreme Chancellor:
He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It's ironic he could save others from death, but not himself.



Anakin Skywalker:
Is it possible to learn this power?



Supreme Chancellor:
Not from a Jedi.
