setting

Space, like time, engenders forgetfulness; but it does so by setting us bodily free from our surroundings and giving us back our primitive, unattached state.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Books constitute capital. A library book lasts as long as a house, for hundreds of years. It is not, then, an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men, setting out in life, it is their only capital.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The supreme, the merciless, the destroyer of opposition, the exalted King, the shepherd, the protector of the quarters of the world, the King the word of whose mouth destroys mountains and seas, who by his lordly attack has forced mighty and merciless Kings from the rising of the sun to the setting of the same to acknowledge one supremacy.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Never forget that life can only be nobly inspired and rightly lived if you take it bravely and gallantly, as a splendid adventure in which you are setting out into an unknown country, to meet many a joy, to find many a comrade, to win and lose many a battle.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

There is no gilding of setting sun or glamour of poetry to light up the ferocious and endless toil of the farmers wives.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Despair is the price one pays for setting oneself an impossible aim. It is, one is told, the unforgivable sin, but it is a sin the corrupt or evil man never practices. He always has hope. He never reaches the freezing-point of knowing absolute failure. Only the man of goodwill carries always in his heart this capacity for damnation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Who ever hears of fat men heading a riot, or herding together in turbulent mobs? No -- no, your lean, hungry men who are continually worrying society, and setting the whole community by the ears.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Friendship is the shadow of the evening, which increases with the setting sun of life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The victory of success is half won when one gains the habit of setting goals and achieving them. Even the most tedious chore will become endurable as you parade through each day convinced that every task, no matter how menial or boring, brings you closer to fulfilling your dreams.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Setting goals for your game is an art. The trick is in setting them at the right level neither too low nor too high.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
God has no intention of setting a limit to the efforts of man to conquer space.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of you to accomplish it. What it makes of you will always be the far greater value than what you get.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Let every dawn of the morning be to you as the beginning of life. And let every setting of the sun be to you as its close. Then let everyone of these short lives leave its sure record of some kindly thing done for others; some good strength of knowledge gained for yourself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What do we mean by setting a man free? You cannot free a man who dwells in a desert and is an unfeeling brute. There is no liberty except the liberty of some one making his way towards something. Such a man can be set free if you will teach him the meaning of thirst, and how to trace a path to a well. Only then will he embark upon a course of action that will not be without significance. You could not liberate a stone if there were no law of gravity -- for where will the stone go, once it is quarried?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The theatre, for all its artifices, depicts life in a sense more truly than history, because the medium has a kindred movement to that of real life, though an artificial setting and form.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Each generation of the church in each setting has the responsibility of communicating the gospel in understandable terms, considering the language and thought-forms of that setting.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The new sound-sphere is global. It ripples at great speed across languages, ideologies, frontiers and races. The economics of this musical Esperanto is staggering. Rock and pop breed concentric worlds of fashion, setting and life-style. Popular music has brought with it sociologies of private and public manner, of group solidarity. The politics of Eden come loud.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A happy marriage perhaps represents the ideal of human relationship -- a setting in which each partner, while acknowledging the need of the other, feels free to be what he or she by nature is: a relationship in which instinct as well as intellect can find expression; in which giving and taking are equal; in which each accepts the other, and I confronts Thou.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The key to setting priorities, the order in which you must accomplish things, is to ask yourself, What is my payoff in doing this activity? How does this fit in with my long-term objectives?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Do not dismayed daughters, at the number of things which you have to consider before setting out on this divine journey, which is the royal road to heaven. By taking this road we gain such precious treasures that it is no wonder if the cost seems to us a high one. The time will come when we shall realize that all we have paid has been nothing at all by comparison with the greatness of our prizes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The act of smelling something, anything, is remarkably like the act of thinking. Immediately at the moment of perception, you can feel the mind going to work, sending the odor around from place to place, setting off complex repertories through the brain, polling one center after another for signs of re recognition, for old memories and old connection.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You can become an even more excellent person by constantly setting higher and higher standards for yourself and then by doing everything possible to live up to those standards.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The slanders poured down like Niagara. If you take into consideration the setting -- the war and the revolution -- and the character of the accused -- revolutionary leaders of millions who were conducting their party to the sovereign power -- you can say without exaggeration that July 1917 was the month of the most gigantic slander in world history.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Setting an exciting goal is like setting a needle in your compass. From then on, the compass knows only one point-its ideal. And it will faithfully guide you there through the darkest nights and fiercest storms.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
May God be gracious to each lonely one who walks in silence towards the setting sun.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
But you can catch yourself entertaining habitually certain ideas and setting others aside; and that, I think, is where our personal destinies are largely decided.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Maitre D: Sir, the pool is for decoration, and your friends do not have swimming suits.
Bruce Wayne: They're European.
Maitre D: I'm going to have to ask you to leave.
[Bruce starts to write a check]
Maitre D: It is not a question of money.
Bruce Wayne: [gives him the check] You see, I'm buying this hotel, and uh, setting new rules about the pool area.More [08/15/2005 12:08:00]
Tess McGill: [pretending to be her boss] I know what I'm doing.

We meet before the movie and she gives you charts with sounds on them and makes a tape of examples. While they are setting up the scene, I go with her to the trailer and we go through the scene and correct the speech.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
I refuse to allow a disability to determine how I live my life. I don't mean to be reckless, but setting a goal that seems a bit daunting actually is very helpful toward recoveryMore [04/21/2006 12:04:00]
The relationships are pretty good. It's a pretty neat community. It's a really peaceful, quiet type of setting with low traffic volume. It is people that love nature and love to be outdoors.More [07/09/2006 12:07:00]
I'm really good at helping people go through things, setting up systems, putting clothes together, making space work.More [07/15/2006 12:07:00]
Loving someone is setting them free, letting them go.More [09/13/2006 12:09:00]

As an actress, you're already disregarded for a lot of the parts by the people who are setting up those shows. You don't need your agent to be doing the same.More [10/12/2006 12:10:00]
The Left Behind franchise is set in the End Times, but the story is about turning to your faith in God and seeking His will during difficult times. This story could just as easily be told in the setting of a natural disaster or terrorist attack. Ten out of ten people will die, and this movie requires the audience to think about what will happen to them when their time on earth comes to an end. The Gospel message remains the same regardless of the circumstances.More [12/01/2006 12:12:00]

Gibbs: So, we're setting out to find whatever this key unlocks.
Jack Sparrow: No. If we don't have the key, we can't open whatever we dont' have that it unlocks. So what purpose would be served in finding whatever need be unlocked, which we don't have, without first having found the key what unlocks it?More [02/19/2007 12:02:00]
Hermione: Look. Hagrid's our friend, why don't we just go and ask him about it?

Hagrid: Mad and hairy? Yer wouldn't be talkin' about me, now would ya?
Ron, Hermione, Harry: No.More [02/21/2007 12:02:00]
Iko 'Jitz' Fujitsu, Marty's Boss in 2015: [shouts] McFly!
Marty McFly: Fujitsu-san, Kon-nichiwa.
Iko 'Jitz' Fujitsu, Marty's Boss in 2015: McFly, I was monitoring that scan you just interfaced. You are *terminated*!
Marty McFly: Terminated? No, no, it wasn't my fault sir! It was Needles, Needles was behind the whole thing!
Iko 'Jitz' Fujitsu, Marty's Boss in 2015: And you cooperated!

Henry Jackson: Hi, Peter!
Peter Parker: Hey, Henry! You've grown tall.
May Parker: You'll never guess who he wants to be... Spider-Man!
Peter Parker: Why?
May Parker: He knows a hero when he sees one. Too few characters out there, flying around like that, saving old girls like me. And Lord knows, kids like Henry need a hero. Courageous, self-sacrificing people. Setting examples for all of us. Everybody loves a hero. People line up for them, cheer them, scream their names. And years later, they'll tell how they stood in the rain for hours just to get a glimpse of the one who taught them how to hold on a second longer. I believe there's a hero in all of us, that keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble, and finally allows us to die with pride, even though sometimes we have to be steady, and give up the thing we want the most. Even our dreams.More [03/18/2007 12:03:00]
Doc Ock: My Rosie's dead. My dream is dead.
Doc Ock: And these... monstrous things should be at the bottom of the river... along with me.

Doc Ock: Gone.
Doc Ock: [arms click and whir] Rebuild? No. Peter was right. I miscalculated.
Doc Ock: [Ock whirls, madness setting in] I couldn't have miscalculated. It was working, wasn't it?
[arms click and whir]
Doc Ock: Yes. We can rebuild. Enlarge the containment field. Make it bigger and stronger than ever! But we need money.
[arms click and whir]
Doc Ock: Steal it? No, no, no, I'm not a criminal.
[arms click and whir]
Doc Ock: That's right... the real crime would be not to finish what we started.
Doc Ock: [arms carry him into his hideout] We'll do it here. The power of the sun in the palm of my hand.
[arms lift him high]
Doc Ock: Nothing will stand in our way! NOTHING!More [03/18/2007 12:03:00]

Luigi: Aah! Guido! There is a real Michael Schumacher Ferrari in my store! A real Ferrari! Punch me, Guido! Punch me in the face! This is the most glorious day of my life!
[Luigi faints and tips over]
Michael Schumacher Ferrari: Wow.
[in Italian]

[On cellphone with Liam]
Bill Cox: Liam, we're on our way. Everything all right?
Liam: We're fine. The house is secure and we are setting up now.
Jack Stanfield: I want to talk to my wife.
Bill Cox: [to Liam, on cellphone] You hear that, Liam? He wants to talk to his wife.

Lucius Hunt: Are you not angry you have no sight?
Ivy Walker: [whispering] I see the world, Lucius Hunt. Just not as you see it.
[pause]
Lucius Hunt: [quietly] What of Noah, then? What if there are medicines for Noah, that could help him be still and to learn?
Ivy Walker: May we stop speaking of this? It is putting knots in my stomach.
[Ivy turns away, then turns back]
Ivy Walker: [whispering] Kitty is to be married. She's found love, again, with Christop Crane. You think it an odd choice, right? You know, he won't sit back in his chair for fear of setting wrinkles in his shirts. But he does have a gentlemanly way about him... and he does care for my sister, deeply. I think Kitty is blessed. I am blessed as well. My older sister is now spoken for. I am now free to receive interest from anyone... who might have interest.More [05/30/2007 12:05:00]

Edie Sedgwick: ...and all around loon.
Andy Warhol: ...Remembered for setting the world on fire...
Edie Sedgwick: ...and escaping the clutches of her terrifying family...
Andy Warhol: ...Made friends with eeeeverybody, and anybody...
