A wise man is superior to any insults which can be put upon him, and the best reply to unseemly behavior is patience and moderation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The type of fig leaf which each culture employs to cover its social taboos offers a twofold description of its morality. It reveals that certain unacknowledged behavior exists and it suggests the form that such behavior takes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The price we pay for the complexity of life is too high. When you think of all the effort you have to put in --telephonic, technological and relational --to alter even the slightest bit of behavior in this strange world we call social life, you are left pining for the straightforwardness of primitive peoples and their physical work.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Competition is a process or variety of habitual behavior that grows out of a habit of mind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The basic difference between being assertive and being aggressive is how our words and behavior affect the rights and well being of others.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When new turns of behavior cease to appear in the life of the individual, its behavior ceases to be intelligent.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It takes a lot of experience of life to see why some relationships last and others do not. But we do not have to wait for a crisis to get an idea of the future of a particular relationship. Our behavior in little every incidents tells us a great deal.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When we read of human beings behaving in certain ways, with the approval of the author, who gives his benediction to this behavior by his attitude towards the result of the behavior arranged by himself, we can be influenced towards behaving in the same way.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no beautifier of complexion or form of behavior like the wish to scatter joy, and not pain, around us.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Good behavior is the last refuge of mediocrity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Elderly gentlemen, gentle in all respects, kind to animals, beloved by children, and fond of music, are found in lonely corners of the downs, hacking at sandpits or tussocks of grass, and muttering in a blind, ungovernable fury elaborate maledictions which could not be extracted from them by robbery or murder. Men who would face torture without a word become blasphemous at the short fourteenth. It is clear that the game of golf may well be included in that category of intolerable provocations which may legally excuse or mitigate behavior not otherwise excusable.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We are all serving a life sentence, and good behavior is our only hope for a pardon.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Cant is always rather nauseating; but before we condemn political hypocrisy, let us remember that it is the tribute paid by men of leather to men of God, and that the acting of the part of someone better than oneself may actually commit one to a course of behavior perceptibly less evil than what would be normal and natural in an avowed cynic.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Growing up human is uniquely a matter of social relations rather than biology. What we learn from connections within the family takes the place of instincts that program the behavior of animals; which raises the question, how good are these connections?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The purpose of polite behavior is never virtuous. Deceit, surrender, and concealment: these are not virtues. The goal of the mannerly is comfort, per se.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The day is not far off when the economic problem will take the back seat where it belongs, and the arena of the heart and the head will be occupied or reoccupied, by our real problems -- the problems of life and of human relations, of creation and behavior and religion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Morality cannot be legislated, but behavior can be regulated. Judicial decrees may not change the heart, but they can restrain the heartless.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The experience and behavior that gets labeled schizophrenic is a special strategy that a person invents in order to live in an unlivable situation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One cannot demand of a scholar that he show himself a scholar everywhere in society, but the whole tenor of his behavior must none the less betray the thinker, he must always be instructive, his way of judging a thing must even in the smallest matters be such that people can see what it will amount to when, quietly and self-collected, he puts this power to scholarly use.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The kingdom of God could be realized simply by daring to live differently from the normal conventions. The kingdom of God in the teachings of Jesus was not an apocalyptic or heavenly projection of otherworldly desire. It was driven by a desire to think that there must be a better way to live together than the present state of affairs. And it called for a change of behavior in the present on the part of individuals invested in the vision.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Realizing that our actions, feelings and behavior are the result of our own images and beliefs gives us the level that psychology has always needed for changing personality.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a very sharp, in-focus picture of it in my head. First I see the ball where I want it to finish, nice and white and sitting up high on the bright green grass. Then the scene quickly changes, and I see the ball going there: its path, trajectory, and shape, even its behavior on landing. Then there is a sort of fade-out, and the next scene shows me making the kind of swing that will turn the previous images into reality.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The individual woman is required a thousand times a day to choose either to accept her appointed role and thereby rescue her good disposition out of the wreckage of her self-respect, or else follow an independent line of behavior and rescue her self-respect out of the wreckage of her good disposition.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Great leaders understand human behavior rather than the cybernetics of any function.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
This is the excellent foppery of the world: that when we are sick in fortune -- often the surfeits of our own behavior -- we make guilty of our disasters the sun, the moon, and stars, as if we were villains on necessity, fools by heavenly compulsion, knaves, thieves, and treachers by spherical predominance, drunkards, liars, and adulterers by an enforced obedience of planetary influence. An admirable evasion of whoremaster man, to lay his goatish disposition on the charge of a star!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Physics does not change the nature of the world it studies, and no science of behavior can change the essential nature of man, even though both sciences yield technologies with a vast power to manipulate the subject matters.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When man learns to understand and control his own behavior as well as he is learning to understand and control the behavior of crop plants and domestic animals, he may be justified in believing that he has become civilized.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most perfect expression of human behavior is a string quartet.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The cloning of humans is on most of the lists of things to worry about from science, along with behavior control, genetic engineering, transplanted heads, computer poetry and the unrestrained growth of plastic flowers.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Philosophy offers the rather cold consolation that perhaps we and our planet do not actually exist; religion presents the contradictory and scarcely more comforting thought that we exist but that we cannot hope to get anywhere until we cease to exist. Alcohol, in attempting to resolve the contradiction, produces vivid patterns of Truth which vanish like snow in the morning sun and cannot be recalled; the revelations of poetry are as wonderful as a comet in the skies -- and as mysterious. Love, which was once believed to contain the Answer, we now know to be nothing more than an inherited behavior pattern.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Two things in America are astonishing: the changeableness of most human behavior and the strange stability of certain principles. Men are constantly on the move, but the spirit of humanity seems almost unmoved.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
People don't change their behavior unless it makes a difference for them to do so.More [11/12/2005 12:11:00]
In America, I get a lot of younger kids, but there's teens and adults too, ... In Europe, for some reason, I see a lot more males in the audience. In Japan, I don't even notice any kids, partially because they're a lot more strict about fan behavior over there.More [03/22/2006 12:03:00]
One of the primary responsibilities of an actor -- and luxuries -- is the art of observation, being able to watch people and watch their behavior ... which is fascinating, because people are really nuts.More [05/19/2006 12:05:00]
There are moments — behavior — in 'East of Eden' that are pure magic, ... 'Giant' is pure magic; 'Rebel' is a bit dated and is sort of a strange vision of the 1950s, but his work in that was amazing.More [05/19/2006 12:05:00]
I had started smoking when I was 14 and after 20 years was up to 2 1/2 packs a day. I stay disciplined about eating right and working out now because once you get rid of something that self-destructive, you don't want unhealthy behavior anywhere in your life.More [08/13/2006 12:08:00]
“I have to say that I think maybe they did her a favor, and maybe she'll actually get help. Coffee's one thing, but coke is another. It's not something you want to really have as a problem in your life. I think we have to kind of stop rewarding bad behavior and actually start helping people”More [04/16/2007 12:04:00]
Nash: In competitive behavior someone always loses.
Charles: Well, my niece knows that, John, and she's about this high.
Nash: See if I derive an equilibrium where prevalence is a non-singular event where nobody loses, can you imagine the effect that would have on conflict scenarios, arm negotiations...
Charles: When did you last eat?
Nash: ...currency exchange?
Charles: When did you last eat? You know, food.
Nash: You have no respect for cognitive reverie, you know that?
Charles: Yes. But pizza - now, pizza I have enormous respect for. And of course beer.
Nash: [throws stuff down and follows] I have respect for beer. I have respect for beer!More [04/28/2007 12:04:00]
Desmond: Sir, your behavior is not funny. Your attitude is wasting the bureau's valuable time.
Sheriff Cable: You're lucky I'm not wasting you.More [06/20/2007 12:06:00]
Chuck Barris: Hi folks. Before we begin taping today, I'd like to introduce you to Mr. Peter Jenks of the Federal Communications Commission. Okay?
Peter Jenks: I don't know if any of you are aware of this, but it's a federal offense to make lascivious remarks on a television network broadcast. The penalty for this disgusting, un-American behavior is one year in prison, or a ten thousand dollar fine. Or both! Anyone making a sick or subversive remark tonight will be arrested immediately. I then will personally escort the offender to federal prison for booking under edict number 364 of the Broadcasting Act of 1963. And it's a long drive to that prison, baby, just you and me. No witnesses.
Chuck Barris: Okay have fun everybody... alright...More [07/29/2007 12:07:00]
“But behavior in the human being is sometimes a defense, a way of concealing motives and thoughts, as language can be a way of hiding your thoughts and preventing communication.”More [08/08/2007 12:08:00]
Those who carry out those acts should know that what they’re doing is committing a war crime. They will be held accountable for it, and it will not just be the field commanders, … Any political leaders we find who have ordered that type of behavior will also be held to account.More [08/15/2007 12:08:00]
Dr. Cocteau: John Spartan, this display of barbaric behavior was unacceptable even in your time!
John Spartan: Yeah. But it worked.
[Shoots out the monitors with Cocteau's face on them]
John Spartan: When a man like Pheonix has a gun to your head, ten seconds is nine and a half seconds longer than you live.More [08/26/2007 12:08:00]
“Nothing in his person or his teaching would indicate that (the charges) would be true, ... He has strong political views -- I'd say he is a social liberal -- but I've never seen a scintilla of violence in his behavior or in the way he interacts with his students. He is very passive and low-key.”More [10/01/2007 12:10:00]
Vincent Talbot: I must apologize for my behavior in the office, it's just that your appearance was a bit of a shock to me.
Elvira: It's OK. My appearance is kind of a shock to everybody.More [10/10/2007 12:10:00]
ChiCha: So what did the emperor want?
Pacha: Uh, he couldn't see me.
ChiCha: Couldn't see you? Why not.
Pacha: He didn't say.
ChiCha: Well, that's just rude!
Pacha: Honey, he is the emperor. I'm sure he's busy.
ChiCha: No, no, no, no. Emperor or not, it's called common courtesy. If it was me, I'd march right back there and demand to see him.
Pacha: Honey, honey. Remember the baby.
ChiCha: Pacha, don't worry. This baby's not coming out for a while now, but even if it was, I'd give that emperor a piece of my mind. I mean, behavior like that just makes me want to...
ChiCha: I gotta go wash something.More [10/10/2007 12:10:00]
Ethan Thomas: So, the judge thinks we should offer your client a new plea agreement. Apparently she thinks the community would be better served without this trial.
Erin Bruner: How do you feel about it, personally?
Ethan Thomas: My job is to represent the interest of the people, make an effort to be objective.
Erin Bruner: Hm. I ask because I know you're a Churchgoer. Now you're sent to prosecute a man of God.
Ethan Thomas: Your priest broke the law and a young girl is dead. If he's a man of God then personally I think he's even more subject to the laws of moral behavior and punishment. If it were up to me he'd get no deal at all.
Erin Bruner: What about forgiveness and compassion? Isn't that part of your Creed or does that just get in the way of your work?
Ethan Thomas: If you have compassion for your client, counselor, you'll persuade him to accept this: Charges reduced to reckless endangerment, 12 months in a county jail, reducible to 6 plus probation if he can stay out of trouble. Somehow I expect he can manage that, but please understand me... if he refuses I will seek the maximum.More [10/24/2007 12:10:00]
[Dana has described seeing a terror dog in her refrigerator]
Dr. Peter Venkman: Generally you don't see that kind of behavior in a major appliance.More [12/14/2007 12:12:00]
We're more sexually repressed than men, having been given a much more strict puritanical code of behavior than men ever have.More [03/10/2008 12:03:00]
Vivian Jaffe: Why do you think that you tell the mayo story so much?
Brad Stand: I don't know. Why?
Bernard Jaffe: It's propaganda.
Brad Stand: [scoffing] For mayonnaise?
Bernard Jaffe: For you.
Vivian Jaffe: Specifically, you're so impressive because you know Shania. And you're so strong because you pulled one on her.
Bernard Jaffe: You're a funny guy, a good guy.
Vivian Jaffe: Keeping everyone laughing, so that maybe, quote, you don't get depressed.
Brad Stand: [shouting] Well, what's so great about depression?
Bernard Jaffe: Nothing. Unless it holds the key to something you compulsively avoid, so it will never be examined or felt. Hence your behavior becomes repetitive like the story.
Vivian Jaffe: Like the story.
Bernard Jaffe: Like the story.
Bernard Jaffe: Shut up. Alright, I don't have to tell stories.
Vivian Jaffe: What do you think would happen if you didn't tell the stories? Are you being yourself?
Brad Stand: How am I not myself?
Bernard Jaffe: How am I not myself?
Vivian Jaffe: How am I not myself?
Bernard Jaffe: How... am I not... myself?More [04/07/2008 12:04:00]
Corliss Archer: Were you treating Betty Campbell to a coke? That frizzed out blonde?
Dexter Franklin: I was - well, we just happend to meet. I mean, gee, well, well as a matter of fact, it was a root beer.
Corliss Archer: Dexter Franklin, kindly leave this property at once.
Dexter Franklin: Well, holy cow, I tell you -
Corliss Archer: If there is one thing I will not stand for, it's fragrant infidelity!
Mildred Pringle: The word is flagrant, Corliss.
Corliss Archer: Well, what did I say?
Dexter Franklin: You said fragrant.
Corliss Archer: Well, I meant it. Your behavior stinks! Now get out!More [06/06/2008 12:06:00]
Colonel Ludlow: Indians! Indians were the issue in those days. I can assure you, gentlemen, there is nothing quite so grotesque as the meeting of a child with the a bullet; or an entire village slaughtered while sleeping. That was the Government's resolution of that particular issue and I have seen nothing in its behavior since then that would persuade me that it has gained either in wisdom, common sense, or humanity.More [07/13/2008 12:07:00]
I've had it happen to me before where it turns out that they never had the money and couldn't have made the movie in the first place. And these are the things you have to look for when trying to read the behavior of the people you sit down with.More [08/07/2008 12:08:00]

[Rat and Mole have interrupted Toad's rampage with Cyril and the cart]

Toad, we want to have a talk with you.

Mr. Toad:
Oh, a visit? Splendid.

Toad, this is serious. You've got to give up that horse and cart.

Mr. Toad:
[in disbelief] Give up my... Oh, but my dear Ratty, this is my career. Surely, you can't mean it.

I do mean it. You've got to stop this foolishness.

Mr. Toad:

You must!

Mr. Toad:
No, I won't do it!

Your reckless is behavior is giving us animals a bad name.

Mr. Toad:
I won't listen to anything!

[he covers his ears and everything Rat says is softened, but whenever he removes his hands from his ears, Rat speaks louder]

Your thoughts are becoming a menace to society. If you won't think of yourself, then think of poor old MacBadger. And as for that horse, no good could ever come from galloping about with such a fast and irresponsible beast.

[when he hears this last part, Cyril covers his ears with his ears. Toad laughs]

[first lines]

It is a well-known psychological fact that people's behavior is strongly affected by the way they dress. For instance, if we alter this gentleman's attire to something more romantic, certain changes in attitude may perhaps be detected.

[the man's business suit is changed to a pirate outfit]

Batten down the keelhaul! Yahoo! Kill the women and children first! Blood! Gore! Spit 'em on the tatters!

Even a change of hats will usually bring certain changes.

[Elmer Fudd appears on screen]

Look at this mild-mannered little man. A rather quaint figure, we might say, in his old-fashioned clothes. Yet put a hunter's cap on his head and let's see what happens.

Elmer Fudd:
Bang, bang, bang! Come out of your holes, you cowardwy wabbits! Bang, bang! And I'll bwow you to smitteweenies!

More [06/16/2016 01:06:42]
Queequeg, such behavior isn't Christian. In fact, it's downright pagan and heathenish.

Rob Petrie:
Laura, there is no reason for your behavior!

Laura Petrie:
There is every reason for my behavior - I'm angry!

Rob Petrie:
Angry, yes, because I wouldn't behave like a puppet! Because I felt a responsibility to my employer!

Laura Petrie:
For heaven's sake, Rob, that's not why I'm angry. I realize you have to do what you think is right. I wouldn't respect you if you let yourself get pushed around by anyone, including me.

Rob Petrie:
Well, what are you angry with me for?

Laura Petrie:
I'm not angry with you. I'm angry with me for being angry with you.

Rob Petrie:
Well, is there anything I can do to patch up this little quarrel you're having among yourself so I can get out of the doghouse?

Laura Petrie:
Did you ever think of trying a kiss?

[Rob leans over to kiss her on the neck]

Laura Petrie:
Not on the neck.

[Rob kisses her lightly on the cheek]

Laura Petrie:
That's better.

[Rob kisses her lightly on the lips]

Laura Petrie:


Laura Petrie:
[they embrace and kiss deeply] Oh, yes.

[they resume their kiss]

Mark Thackeray:
[entering classroom and seeing smoke] All you boys, out. Girls stay where you are. Out.

[closes door]

Mark Thackeray:
I am sick of your foul language, your crude behavior and your sluttish manner. There are certain things a decent woman keeps private, and only a filthy slut would have done this and those who stood by and encouraged her are just as bad. I don't care who's responsible - you're all to blame. Now, I am going to leave this room for five minutes by which time that disgusting object had better be removed and the windows opened to clear away the stench. If you must play these filthy games, do them in your homes, and not in my classroom!

More [06/16/2016 01:06:42]
Dr. Zaius:
Dr. Zira, I must caution you. Experimental brain surgery on these creatures is one thing, and I'm all in favor of it. But your behavior studies are another matter. To suggest that we can learn anything about the simian nature from a study of man is sheer nonsense. Why, man is a nuisance. He eats up his food supply in the forest, then migrates to our green belts and ravages our crops. The sooner he is exterminated, the better. It's a question of simian survival.
