activities

We have almost succeeded in leveling all human activities to the common denominator of securing the necessities of life and providing for their abundance.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As far as many statistical series that are related to activities of mankind are concerned, the date that divides human history into two equal parts is well within living memory. The world of today is as different from the world I was born in as that world was from Julius Caesar s. I was born in the middle of human history, to date, roughly. Almost as much has happened since I was born as happened before.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Minds do not act together in public; they simply stick together; and when their private activities are resumed, they fly apart again.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To be right, a person must do one of two things: either he must learn to have God in his work and hold fast to him there, or he must give up his work altogether. Since, however, we cannot live without activities that are both human and various, we must learn to keep God I everything we do, and whatever the job or place, keep on with him, letting nothing stand in our way.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No culture on earth outside of mid-century suburban America has ever deployed one woman per child without simultaneously assigning her such major productive activities as weaving, farming, gathering, temple maintenance, and tent-building. The reason is that full-time, one-on-one child-raising is not good for women or children.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The manager with the in basket problem does not yet understand that he must discipline himself to take care of activities that fail to excite him.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The business of a seer is to see; and if he involves himself in the kind of God-eclipsing activities which make seeing impossible, he betrays the trust which his fellows have tacitly placed in him.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most remarkable aspect of the transition we are living through is not so much the passage from want to affluence as the passage from labor to leisure. Leisure contains the future, it is the new horizon. The prospect then is one of unremitting labor to bequeath to future generations a chance of founding a society of leisure that will overcome the demands and compulsions of productive labor so that time may be devoted to creative activities or simply to pleasure and happiness.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As long as you know what it is you desire, then by simply affirming that it is yours -- firmly and positively, with no ifs, buts, or maybes -- over and over again, from the minute you arise in the morning until the time you go to sleep at night, and as many times during the day as your work or activities permit, you will be drawn to those people, places, and events that will bring your desires to you.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I am admonished in many ways that time is pushing me inexorably along. I am approaching the threshold of age; in 1977 I shall be 142. This is no time to be flitting about the earth. I must cease from the activities proper to youth and begin to take on the dignities and gravities and inertia proper to that season of honorable senility which is on its way.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: Ah, Logan. I'd like you to meet Ororo Monroe, also called Storm. This is Scott Summers, also called Cyclops. They saved your life. I believe you already know Dr. Jean Grey. You are in my School for the Gifted for Mutants. You'll be safe here from Magneto.
Wolverine: What's a Magneto?
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: A very powerful mutant. He believes that a war is brewing between mutants and the rest of humanity. I've been following his activities for some time. The man who attacked you is an associate of his called Sabertooth.
Wolverine: Sabertooth?
[looks at Storm]
Wolverine: Storm.
[looks at Xavier]
Wolverine: What do they call you? "Wheels"? This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Students.More [10/17/2005 12:10:00]
As long as such suburbs do not end up as commuter dormitories or nothing more than commuter suburbs. The next stage is to produce a richer range of activities and employment opportunities so they can be more self-contained. I think Springfield is a first step, but only a first step and the next phase is going to be critical and that is achieving higher level of self-containment.More [04/14/2006 12:04:00]
Nash: I find you very attractive. Your aggressive moves toward me indicate that you feel the same way. But still, ritual requires that we go through a number of platonic activities before we

Nash: have sex. I'm simply proceeding with those activities. But in point of actual fact, all I really want to do is have intercourse with you as soon as possible. You're gonna slap me now.More [04/28/2007 12:04:00]

Professor Plum: And what was your role in all this?
Wadsworth: I was a victim, too. At least my wife was. She had friends who were
[on the verge of tears]
Wadsworth: Socialists.
[All gasp, Mrs. Peacock is the loudest]
Wadsworth: [starts to cry] Well, we all make mistakes.
[Mrs. White approaches Wadsworth and hands him a handkerchief]
Wadsworth: Anyway, Mr. Boddy threatened to give my wife's name to the House Un-American Activities Committee unless she named them. She refused, and so he blackmailed her. We had no money, and the price of his silence was that we worked for him for nothing. We were slaves. Well, to make a long story short...
Colonel Mustard: Too late.More [07/24/2007 12:07:00]

Susanna: Well that's me.
Lisa: That's everybody.More [12/23/2007 12:12:00]
Narrator: Police Constable Nicholas Angel: born and schooled in London, graduated Canterbury University in 1993 with a double first in Politics and Sociology. Attended Hendon College of Police Training and displayed great aptitude in field exercises, notably Urban Pacification and Riot Control. Academically excelled in theoretical course work and final year examinations. Received a Baton of Honour, graduated with distinction into the Metropolitan Police Service and quickly established an effectiveness and popularity within the community. Proceeded to improve skill base with courses in advanced driving and advanced cycling. He became heavily involved in a number of extra-vocational activities and to this day, he holds the Met record for the hundred meter dash. In 2001, he began active duty with the renowned SO19 Armed Response Unit and received a Bravery Award for efforts in the resolution of Operation Crackdown.

Prince Feisal: My friend Lawrence, if I may call him that. "My friend Lawrence". How many men will claim the right to use that phrase? How proudly! He longs for the greenness of his native land. He pines for the Gothic cottages of Surrey, is it not? Already in imagination, he catches trout and engages in all the activities of the English gentleman.
General Allenby: That's me you're describing, sir, not Colonel Lawrence.More [07/11/2008 12:07:00]

Mr. Praline:
Excuse me, I would like to buy a fish licence, please.

Mr. Praline:
The man's sign is incorrect. I have in the past noticed a marked discrepancy between these post office signs and the activities carried on beneath. But soft. let us see how Dame Fortune smiles upon my next postal adventure.

Lt. Practice:
We are involved here in a far reaching conspiracy to undermine our most basic beliefs and sacred institutions. Whose behind this conspiracy? Once again ask yourself who has the most to gain. People in high places, their names would astound you! People in low places, concealing their activities beneath a cloak of poverty! People of all walks of life, left wing and right wing. Black and white. Students and scholars. A conspiracy of such ominous proportion that we will never, never know the whole story and we'll never be able to reveal all the facts! We are readying mass arrests. I am going to see that you people get every possible break. If there is any information you would like to contribute at this time, it will be held in the strictest confidence....

Lord Peter Wimsey:
Well, I think we can say we've made some progess. Even if it's a bit on the negative side.



Sir Impey Biggs:
Negative? Exactly! By heaven, negative indeed! Have you the faintest idea how seriously your activities have succeeded in damaging the case for the defense?



Lord Peter Wimsey:
Well, that's a nice thing to say, when we've cleared up such a lot of points for you.



Sir Impey Biggs:
I daresay. Points better left muffled up! Light where there was better darkness!



Lord Peter Wimsey:
But damn it, we only want to get at the truth!



Sir Impey Biggs:
Do you? Well, I don't! I don't care tuppence for the truth. I want a case. It doesn't matter to me who killed Cathcart, provided that I can prove that it wasn't Denver. It's really enough if I can throw reasonable doubt that it was Denver. Here's a client who comes to me with a story of a quarrel, a mysterious revolver, a refusal to produce evidence of his statements, and a totally inadequate and idiotic alibi. I arrange to obfuscate the jury with mysterious footprints, a discrepancy as to time, a young woman with a secret, and a general vague suggestion of something between a burglary and a crime passionel. And here you come! Explaining the footprints, exculpating the unknown man, abolishing the discrepancies, clearing up the motives of the young woman, and most carefully throwing back suspicion to where it rested in the first place.



Lord Peter Wimsey:
I always said the professional advocate was the most amoral person on the face of the earth. I'm certain of it now.

Diana Christensen:
Look, I sent you all a concept analysis report yesterday. Did any of you read it?


[Aides stare blankly at her]



Diana Christensen:
Well, in a nutshell, it said: "The American people are turning sullen. They've been clobbered on all sides by Vietnam, Watergate, the inflation, the depression; they've turned off, shot up, and they've fucked themselves limp, and nothing helps." So, this concept analysis report concludes, "The American people want somebody to articulate their rage for them." I've been telling you people since I took this job six months ago that I want angry shows. I don't want conventional programming on this network. I want counterculture, I want anti-establishment. I don't want to play butch boss with you people, but when I took over this department, it had the worst programming record in television history. This network hasn't one show in the top twenty. This network is an industry joke, and we'd better start putting together one winner for next September. I want a show developed based on the activities of a terrorist group, "Joseph Stalin and His Merry Band of Bolsheviks," I want ideas from you people. This is what you're paid for. And by the way, the next time I send an audience research report around, you'd all better read it, or I'll sack the fucking lot of you. Is that clear?

John Bender:
Oh, this should be stunning.



Claire Standish:
It's because you're afraid.



John Bender:
Oh God, you richies are so smart, that's exactly why I'm not heavy into activities.



Claire Standish:
You're a big coward.



Brian Johnson:
I'm in the math club.



Claire Standish:
See, you're afraid that they won't take you, you don't belong, so you have to just dump all over it.



John Bender:
Well, it wouldn't have anything to do with you activities people being assholes, now would it?



Claire Standish:
Well, you wouldn't know, you don't even know any of us.



John Bender:
Well, I don't know any lepers, but I'm not going to run out and join one of their fucking clubs.



Andrew Clark:
Hey. Let's watch the mouth, huh?



Brian Johnson:
I'm in the physics club too.



John Bender:
Excuse me a sec. What are you babbling about?



Brian Johnson:
Well, what I had said was I'm in the math club, uh, the Latin, and the physics club... physics club.



John Bender:
Hey, Cherry. Do you belong to the physics club?



Claire Standish:
That's an academic club.



John Bender:
So?



Claire Standish:
So academic clubs aren't the same as other kinds of clubs.



John Bender:
Ah... but to dorks like him, they are. What do you guys do in your club?



Brian Johnson:
Well, in physics we... we talk about physics, properties of physics.

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.

Scott Carpenter:
What happened?



Margaret Miller:
I'm really proud of you. You did the right thing.



Scott Carpenter:
Will someone please tell me what's going on?



Mr. Carpenter:
Mr. Turner, I think we ought to have the reverend read that letter.



Baseball Coach:
[reading] "Dear Mr. Turner, I know I haven't written since last year when I told you that Pete was coming back to town to stay for the summer. I was reading the paper today when I saw his name in the article included. I guess it's pretty self-explanatory." Scott, why don't you read this?



Scott Carpenter:
[reading] "Today at two o'clock, the mayor of Chicago honored, for the first time in the city's history, a member of a gang. That gang member was Pete Turner. Mr. Turner's gang is rather unusual. Mr. Turner tells his gang, 'If you accept yourself for who you are and truly love others, a lot of good will happen.' This gang, which only a few months ago was typical of those found in the area, refuses to fight or participate in any illegal activities and instead devotes much of their time to helping and serving the community around them."

TROUBLE! I've been in trouble for the past 12 hours! HELLO? You know I'm going to be in St. Bernards Boarding School for the next 2 years. I'm gonna be out of your hair until I'm a legal adult! And then all YOU have to do is go to church, light a candle, and pray to some stupid little statue for me and all is forgiven and forgotten, right mom? Then you can spend your days in a guilt free pursuit of more constructive activities like telling everyone else how screwed up their lives are. And then you no longer need the patience and understanding required to talk to your own son on some normal plain. And then that way you don't have to think about how tough it was for you when you were growing up and its probably a good thing too cause if you did, you'd realize what a lousy, goddam shitty-ass parent you are.

Will:
I find the key is to think of a day as units of time, each unit consisting of no more than thirty minutes. Full hours can be a little bit intimidating and most activities take about half an hour. Taking a bath: one unit, watching countdown: one unit, web-based research: two units, exercising: three units, having my hair carefully disheveled: four units. It's amazing how the day fills up, and I often wonder, to be absolutely honest, if I'd ever have time for a job; how do people cram them in?
