acts

The shy man does have some slight revenge upon society for the torture it inflicts upon him. He is able, to a certain extent, to communicate his misery. He frightens other people as much as they frighten him. He acts like a damper upon the whole room, and the most jovial spirits become, in his presence, depressed and nervous.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

In contrast to revenge, which is the natural, automatic reaction to transgression and which, because of the irreversibility of the action process can be expected and even calculated, the act of forgiving can never be predicted; it is the only reaction that acts in an unexpected way and thus retains, though being a reaction, something of the original character of action.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We live in deeds, not years: In thoughts not breaths; In feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nothing in the nature around us is evil. This needs to be repeated since one of the human ways of talking oneself into inhuman acts is to cite the supposed cruelty of nature.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Energy is an eternal delight, and he who desires, but acts not, breeds pestilence.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

In our own time we have seen domination spread over the social landscape to a point where it is beyond all human control. Compared to this stupendous mobilization of materials, of wealth, of human intellect, of human labor for the single goal of domination, all other recent human achievements pale to almost trivial significance. Our art, science, medicine, literature, music and charitable acts seem like mere droppings from a table on which gory feasts on the spoils of conquest have engaged the attention of a system whose appetite for rule is utterly unrestrained.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A man can go from being a lover to being a stranger in three moves flat but a woman under the guise of friendship will engage in acts of duplicity which come to light very much later. There are different species of self-justification.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The superior man acts before he speaks, and afterwards speaks according to his action.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Men are mad most of their lives; few live sane, fewer die so. The acts of people are baffling unless we realize that their wits are disordered. Man is driven to justice by his lunacy.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Man is only truly great when he acts from his passions.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Women are an enslaved population -- the crop we harvest is children, the fields we work are houses. Women are forced into committing sexual acts with men that violate integrity because the universal religion -- contempt for women -- has as its first commandment that women exist purely as sexual fodder for men.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is in these acts called trivialities that the seeds of joy are forever wasted, until men and women look round with haggard faces at the devastation their own waste has made, and say, the earth bears no harvest of sweetness -- calling their denial knowledge.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No sooner said than done -- so acts your man of worth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have tried to make all my acts and commercial moves the result of definite consideration and sound judgment. There were never any great ventures or risks. I practiced honest, slow-growing business methods, and tried to back them with energy and good system.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

By alienation is meant a mode of experience in which the person experiences himself as an alien. He has become, one might say, estranged from himself. He does not experience himself as the center of his world, as the creator of his own acts -- but his acts and their consequences have become his masters, whom he obeys, or whom he may even worship. The alienated person is out of touch with himself as he is out of touch with any other person. He, like the others, is experienced as things are experienced; with the senses and with common sense, but at the same time without being related to oneself and to the world outside positively.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Fantasies are more than substitutes for unpleasant reality; they are also dress rehearsals, plans. All acts performed in the world begin in the imagination.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If every day a man takes orders in silence from an incompetent superior, if every day he solemnly performs ritual acts which he privately finds ridiculous, if he unhesitatingly gives answers to questionnaires which are contrary to his real opinions and is prepared to deny his own self in public, if he sees no difficulty in feigning sympathy or even affection where, in fact, he feels only indifference or aversion, it still does not mean that he has entirely lost the use of one of the basic human senses, namely, the sense of humiliation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The definition of genius is that it acts unconsciously; and those who have produced immortal works, have done so without knowing how or why. The greatest power operates unseen.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total; of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
At the beginning of every act of faith, there is often a seed of fear. For great acts of faith are seldom born out of calm calculation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The thought pattern characteristic of the right brain lends itself to the formation of original ideas, insights, discoveries. We might describe it as the kind of thought prevalent in early childhood, when everything is new and everything has meaning. If you have ever walked along a beach and suddenly stopped to pick up a piece of driftwood because it looked to you like a leaping impala or a troll, you know the feeling of pleasure that comes from the sudden recognition of a form. Your Design mind (right brain) has perceived connections and had made a pattern of meaning. It takes logical, rational acts and facts of the world you know, the snippets of your experience, the bits and pieces of your language capabilities, and perceives connections, patterns, and relationships in them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Familiar acts are beautiful through love.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To make our idea of morality center on forbidden acts is to defile the imagination and to introduce into our judgments of our fellow-men a secret element of gusto.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is an insult to God to believe in God. For on the one hand it is to suppose that he has perpetrated acts of incalculable cruelty. On the other hand, it is to suppose that he has perversely given his human creatures an instrument -- their intellect -- which must inevitably lead them, if they are dispassionate and honest, to deny his existence. It is tempting to conclude that if he exists, it is the atheists and agnostics that he loves best, among those with any pretensions to education. For they are the ones who have taken him most seriously.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We will invent new lullabies, new songs, new acts of love, we will cry over things we used to laugh and our new wisdom will bring tears to eyes of gentle creatures from other planets who were afraid of us till then and in the end a summer with wild winds and new friends will be.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Powerful men in particular suffer from the delusion that human beings have no memories. I would go so far as to say that the distinguishing trait of powerful men is the psychotic certainty that people forget acts of infamy as easily as their parents birthMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Photography suits the temper of this age -- of active bodies and minds. It is a perfect medium for one whose mind is teeming with ideas, imagery, for a prolific worker who would be slowed down by painting or sculpting, for one who sees quickly and acts decisively, accurately.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The whole theory of modern education is radically unsound. Fortunately in England, at any rate, education produces no effect whatsoever. If it did, it would prove a serious danger to the upper classes, and probably lead to acts of violence.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Intertitle: A woman in love acts like a fool. A man in love is not acting.More [12/27/2005 12:12:00]

There is some mysterious thing that goes on whereby, in the process of playing Shakespeare continuously, actors are surprised by the way the language actually acts on them.More [11/03/2006 12:11:00]

Stella Baines: He's a very strange young man.

Paul Vitti: [as they drive away from SingSing, Paul is acting psycotic, as soon as SingSing's out of view Paul acts normal] You fuckin' piece of shit! I call to say someone's trying to kill me and you fuckin' hang up on me?

Manfred: [to Scrat] Hey, buddy. Have you seen any humans go by here?
[Scrats mimes charade game]
Sid: Ooh, ooh, ooh! I love this game! I love this game! Let's see. First word...
[Scrat mimes packing down snow]
Sid: Stomp. No, Stamp.
Manfred: Let me try. Um... pack.
[Scrats nods]
Sid: Good one, Manny.
[Scrat acts like a sabertooth]
Sid: Second word, long teeth, and claws. Pack of wolves? Pack of...
Manfred: Pack of bears?
Sid: No.
Manfred: Pack of fleas?
Sid: [Scrat points at Diego] Pack of whiskers? Pack of noses?
Manfred: Pachyderm!
Sid: Pack of lies? Pack of troubles?
[Diego swats Scrat and sends him flying]
Sid: Pack a wallop? Pack of birds? Pack of flying fish?More [03/08/2007 12:03:00]
Sid Waterman: I don't need to work out. My anxiety acts as aerobics.More [03/14/2007 12:03:00]
Professor X: William.
William Stryker: Please, Xavier, don't get up.
[electronic static]
William Stryker: I call it the neural inhibitor. It keeps you outta here.
Professor X: What have you done with Scott?
William Stryker: Don't worry. I'm just giving him a little reeducation. Of course, you know all about that, don't you?
Professor X: William, you wanted me to cure your son. But mutation is not a disease.
William Stryker: You're lying. You were more frightened of him than I was. You know, just one year after Jason returned from your school... my wife - you see he resented us. He blamed us for his condition. So he would toy with our minds... projecting visions and scenarios into our brains. Well, my wife, in the end... she took a power drill to her left temple in an attempt to bore the images out. My boy, the great illusionist.
[crackling]
Professor X: For someone who hates mutants... you certainly keep some strange company.
William Stryker: Oh, they serve their purpose... as long as they can be controlled.
Professor X: You arranged the attack on the president.
William Stryker: You didn't even have to read my mind. You know, I've been working with mutants as long as you have, Xavier... but the most frustrating thing I've learned is that nobody really knows how many even exist or how to find them - except you. Unfortunately this little potion won't work on you, will it? You're much too powerful for that. Instead we'll go right to the source. Allow me to introduce mutant 143. The fluid secreted by his brain acts as a mind-controlling agent.
[machinery hissing]
William Stryker: But that's only where it begins.
Professor X: Jason. Oh, my God, William. This is your son. What have you done to him?
William Stryker: No, Charles! My son is dead... just like the rest of you.
[hissing continues, Xavier gasps]More [03/15/2007 12:03:00]
Frank Costello: [talking about Costigan] Do you trust him?
Mr. French: Well these days, who's reliable?
Frank Costello: His uncle Jackie was. Yeah, you can't trust a guy acts like he's got nothing to lose.
Mr. French: I'm reliable.
Frank Costello: Arnold, you're one in a million.
Mr. French: Ten. Ten million.
Frank Costello: What about your wife, Arnold?
Mr. French: Well, I thought she was.
Frank Costello: [laughing] She wasn't!
Mr. French: Well, she got reliable.
[flashback showing French strangling his wife]More [03/22/2007 12:03:00]
