[Capt. Blood is dictating to Jeremy Pitt the agreement for the sailors who are assembled on the deck]
Dr. Peter Blood: We, the undersigned, are men without a country. Outlaws in our own land and homeless outcasts in any other. Desperate men, we go to seek a desperate fortune. Therefore, we do, here and now, band ourselves into a brotherhood of bucaneers... to practice the trade of piracy on the high seas. We, the hunted, will now hunt! Therefore, to that end, we enter into the following Articles of Agreement: First: We pledge ourselves to be bound together as brothers in a life and death friendship, sharing alike in fortune and in trouble. Second Article: All monies and valuables which may come into our possession shall be lumped together into a common fund... and from this fund shall first be taken the money to fit, rig, and provision the ship. After that, the recompense each shall receive who is wounded is follows: for the loss of a right arm: 600 pieces of eight; left arm: 500; for the loss of a right leg: 500; left leg: 400.
Honesty Nuttall: [to Hagthorpe] A fella can get rich if he's lucky.
Henry Hagthorpe: Greedy, greedy.
Dr. Peter Blood: [continuing to dictate] If a man conceal any treasure captured or fail to place it in the general fund, he shall be marooned. Set ashore on a deserted isle, and there left with a bottle of water, a loaf of bread and a pistol with one load. If a man shall be drunk on duty he shall recieve the same fate. And if a man shall molest a woman captive against her will... he, too, shall receive the same punishment. These Articles entered into this 20th day of June, in the year 1687.
[having finished dictating, he addresses the crew]
Dr. Peter Blood: Now, men, you've heard the Agreement. It's the world against us and us against the world!
Rev. Uriah Ogle: "His hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him." Genesis, 16th chapter, 12th verse.
Dr. Peter Blood: Those of you in favor of these Articles raise your right hands and say, "Aye!"

It is our clear view that a cyberthreat can disrupt the provision of services and disrupt our society, disable our society even more so than can a well-placed bomb,More [12/03/2007 12:12:00]
There is an emergency provision within FISA, and one could ask for more authority. If they had good reason Congress would have given it to them.More [12/03/2007 12:12:00]
Government advocate: General Dyer, is it correct that you ordered your troops to fire at the thickest part of the crowd?
Gen. Dyer: [righteous tone] That is so.
Government advocate: One thousand five hundred and sixteen casualties with one thousand six hundred and fifty bullets.
Gen. Dyer: My intention was to inflict a lesson that would have an impact throughout all India.
Indian barrister: General, had you been able to take in the armored car, would you have opened fire with the machine gun?
Gen. Dyer: I think, probably, yes.
Lord Hunter: General, did you realize there were children, and women, in the crowd?
Gen. Dyer: I did.
Government advocate: But that was irrelevant to the point you were making?
Gen. Dyer: That is correct!
Government advocate: Could I ask you what provision you made for the wounded?
Gen. Dyer: I was ready to help any who applied.
Government advocate: General, how does a child shot with a 303 Lee-Enfield "apply" for help?
Gen. Dyer: [silence]More [12/08/2007 12:12:00]
Purple Monster:
You are Dr. Cyrus Layton. We've watched the progress of your work and have come to you for help. My own projectile, you see, has no provision for a return journey. I am anxious to see the plans for your jet plane.

Portly Gentleman:
At this festive time of year, Mr. Scrooge, it is more than usually desirable that we should make some slight provision for the poor and destitute, who suffer greatly at the present time.



Ebenezer:
Why? Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?



Portly Gentleman:
Many can't go there; and many would rather die.



Ebenezer:
If they would rather die, they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population.

Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller:
Listen to this, Sylvia.


[reads from magazine]



Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller:
The new White Star Liner "RMS Titanic", the largest vessel in the world. It is not only in size, but also in the luxury of her appointments that the "Titanic" takes first place among the big steamers of the world. By the provision of Vinolia Auto Toilert Soap for her First Class passengers the "Titanic" also leads as offering a higher standard of toilet luxury and comfort at sea.


[laughs]



Mrs. Sylvia Lightoller:
Let me see.

Augusta Prodworthy:
And since I am strongly of the opinion that we are already providing more than enough entertainment for visitors, I wish to propose the motion that the provision of more would be detrimental to the good name of the borough.



Sid Fiddler:
Knickers!



Mayor Frederick Bumble:
Please, Councillor! I should strike that from the minutes, Miss Drew.



Miss Drew:
Ah, I beg your pardon, your worship?



Mayor Frederick Bumble:
Don't take down 'knickers'.



Sid Fiddler:
Chance would be a fine thing, wouldn't it, love?



Mayor Frederick Bumble:
Councillor Fiddler, I really must request you moderate your language while in committee.



Augusta Prodworthy:
I second that.



Sid Fiddler:
I do beg the Committee's pardon, your worship. But all this bleedin' codswollop about mucking up the good name of the borough gets on my wick!



Miss Drew:
Should I...?



Mayor Frederick Bumble:
No, no!

[Veeru and Jai are handcuffed in the train]



Veeru:
Were you ever earlier at the Daulatpur police station, sir?



Thakur Baldev Singh:
Yes, I was. Why did you ask?



Veeru:
[Smiling] I remember now! Ever since you've caught us, I've been wondering where I've seen you. Remember Lalji's shop? The provision store which was robbed?... Do you remember?



Thakur Baldev Singh:
Lalji's provision store? No...



Veeru:
You don't remember?


[waking up Jai with his elbow]



Veeru:
Jai... Jai. Remember, when we were held for two days at the Daulatpur police station?



Jai:
[wakes up] Daulatpur police station?



Veeru:
Yeah, yeah.



Jai:
When were we locked up there?



Veeru:
When we broke into that grocery store.


[gesturing towards Thakur]



Veeru:
He was the police officer then. Don't you recognize him?



Jai:
[Looking at Thakur] All police officers look the same to me.

Dr. Andrews:
Billions of dollars have been spent to make these nuclear plants safe. Fail-safe! The odds against anything going wrong are astronomical, Doctor!



Dr. Hubbard:
I appreciate that, Doctor. But let me ask you. In all your fail-safe techniques, is there a provision for an attack by killer bees?

Lawyer:
[reading from Joan's will after her death] It is my intention to make no provision herein for my son Christopher or my daughter Christina, for reasons which are well known to them.



Christopher:
What reasons?



Christina:
(laughing bitterly) Jesus Christ.



Christopher:
As usual, she has the last word.



Christina:
Does she? Does she?

Universal suffrage should rest upon universal education. To this end, liberal and permanent provision should be made for the support of free schools by the State governments, and, if need be, supplemented by legitimate aid from national authority.More [08/14/2011 01:08:46]
Perfect acceptance, complete forgiveness, abundant provision and ultimate deliverance. It's called grace.More [02/25/2012 10:02:13]
a broad base of organisations using and supplying open data would allow for better understanding of the impact made by the social sector, potentially revealing gaps in provision and providing evidence of the quality of the relationships between funders, public and private sector partners.More [06/07/2012 06:06:42]
The notion that Congress can change the meaning given a constitutional provision by the Court is subversive of the function of judicial review and it is not the less so because the Court promises to allow it only when the Constitution is moved to the left.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
And that's really what's happening in this country is a violation of the First Commandment. We have become a country entrenched in idolatry, and that idolatry is the dependency upon our government. We're supposed to depend upon God for our protection and our provision and for our daily bread, not for our government.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Theology made no provision for evolution. The biblical authors had missed the most important revelation of all! Could it be that they were not really privy to the thoughts of God?More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
One of the gaps in our international development efforts is the provision of global public goods - that is, goods or conditions we need that no individual or country can secure on their own, such as halting global warming, financial stability and peace and security.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

Impostor; do not charge most innocent Nature,

If wisdom were offered me with the provision that I should keep it shut

No literary fact is more remarkable than that men, knowing what these writers knew, and feeling what they felt, should have given us chronicles so plain and calm. They have nothing to say as from themselves. Their narratives place us without preface, and keep us without comment, among external scenes, in full view of facts, and in contact with the living person whom they teach us to know... Who can fail to recognize a divine provision for placing the disciples of all future ages as nearly as possible in the position ofMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Whatever may be our differences of colour, culture, and class, the unity that is ours in Christ is given visible expression at every Synod. Here we all gather around the one Altar, here we all share in shaping the policy of the Church in this diocese; here we all take part in making provision for carrying on the work of the Church during the coming year. At this time, year by year, we are specially conscious of our unity in Christ, and are made aware afresh that we are members of this new race of human beings which is More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Some people are reluctant to consider the future, arguing that it must be left to solve its own problems and to shape its own beliefs. In all right efforts for the future, religion must be given first place. No provision to secure peace or just social principles can be worth much unless the foremost aim be to establish the Kingdom of God. It is not the minds and bodies only of generations to come that have to be remembered, but their immortal souls.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Commemoration of Samuel & Henrietta Barnett, Social Reformers, 1913 & 1936 It should be noted, at least by those who accept Christ's claim to be God, that he by no means fits into the picture of the "mystic saint". Those who are fascinated by the supposed superiority of the mystic soul might profitably compile a list of its characteristics and place them side by side with those of Christ. The results would probably expose a surprising conclusion. There is, in fact, no provision for a "privileged class" in genuine ChMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Christ came... in a purpose, ... to manifest himself in the Christian Religion, to all the nations of the world; and therefore, says David, The Lord reigneth, let the Islands rejoice -- the Islands who by reason of their situation, provision, and trading have most means of conveying Christ Jesus over the world. He hath carried us up to heaven & set us at the right hand of God, & shall not we endeavour to carry him to those nations, who have not yet heard of his name? Shall we still brag that we have brought our clothesMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

We have tried to reach a settlement through good faith negotiations and regret that our efforts have been in vain.

The provision of basic material needs is not sufficient to make minority groups and indigenous peoples feel they are truly part of the greater national entity.

God comes right out and tells us why he gives us more money than we need. It's not so we can find more ways to spend it. It's not so we can indulge ourselves and spoil our children.
