If only God would give me some clear sign! Like making a large deposit in my name in a Swiss bank.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The best ammunition against lies is the truth, there is no ammunition against gossip. It is like a fog and the clear wind blows it away and the sun burns it off.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is clear our nation is reliant upon big foreign oil. More and more of our imports come from overseas. (Beaverton, Ore., Sep. 25, 2000)More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Tis our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If only God would give me some clear sign! Like making a large deposit in my name at a Swiss bank.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Both the Moral Majority, who are recycling medieval language to explain AIDS, and those ultra-leftists who attribute AIDS to some sort of conspiracy, have a clearly political analysis of the epidemic. But even if one attributes its cause to a microorganism rather than the wrath of God, or the workings of the CIA, it is clear that the way in which AIDS has been perceived, conceptualized, imagined, researched and financed makes this the most political of diseases.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The trouble with lying and deceiving is that their efficiency depends entirely upon a clear notion of the truth that the liar and deceiver wishes to hide. In this sense, truth, even if it does not prevail in public, possesses an ineradicable primacy over all falsehoods.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is the nature, and the advantage, of strong people that they can bring out the crucial questions and form a clear opinion about them. The weak always have to decide between alternatives that are not their own.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The person with a fixed goal, a clear picture of his desire, or an ideal always before him, causes it, through repetition, to be buried deeply in his subconscious mind and is thus enabled, thanks to its generative and sustaining power, to realize his goal in a minimum of time and with a minimum of physical effort. Just pursue the thought unceasingly. Step by step you will achieve realization, for all your faculties and powers become directed to that end.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To create power is like a magnet, this is true because this creative power operates like a magnet. Give it a strong clear picture of what you want and this creative power starts to work magnetizing conditions about you -- attracting to you things, resources, opportunities, circumstances and even the people you need, to help bring to pass in your outer life what you have pictured.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If all the gold in the world were melted down into a solid cube it would be about the size of an eight room house. If a man got possession of all that gold -- billions of dollars worth -- he could not buy a friend, character, peace of mind, clear conscience or a sense of eternity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The secret of making something work in your lives is, first of all, the deep desire to make it work: then the faith and belief that it can work: then to hold that clear definite vision in your consciousness and see it working out step by step, without one thought of doubt or disbelief.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A just war is hospitable to every self-deception on the part of those waging it, none more than the certainty of virtue, under whose shelter every abomination can be committed with a clear conscience.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is your work to clear away the mass of encumbering material of thoughts, so that you may bring into plain view the precious thing at the center of the mass.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no pain equal to that which two lovers can inflict on one another. This should be made clear to all who contemplate such a union. The avoidance of this pain is the beginning of wisdom, for it is strong enough to contaminate the rest of our lives.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To have his path made clear for him is the aspiration of every human being in our beclouded and tempestuous existence.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When one has come to accept a certain course as duty he has a pleasant sense of relief and of lifted responsibility, even if the course involves pain and renunciation. It is like obedience to some external authority; any clear way, though it lead to death, is mentally preferable to the tangle of uncertainty.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
First, I do not sit down at my desk to put into verse something that is already clear in my mind. If it were clear in my mind, I should have no incentive or need to write about it. We do not write in order to be understood; we write in order to understand.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Do not follow the ideas of others, but learn to listen to the voice within yourself. Your body and mind will become clear and you will realize the unity of all things.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The words of language, as they are written or spoken, do not seem to play any role in my mechanism of thought. The physical entities which seem to serve as elements in thought are certain signs and more or less clear images.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As machines become more and more efficient and perfect, so it will become clear that imperfection is the greatness of man.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What has become clear to you since we last met?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is clear that all verbal structures with meaning are verbal imitations of that elusive psychological and physiological process known as thought, a process stumbling through emotional entanglements, sudden irrational convictions, involuntary gleams of insight, rationalized prejudices, and blocks of panic and inertia, finally to reach a completely incommunicable intuition.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every moment of your life is infinitely creative and the universe is endlessly bountiful. Just put forth a clear enough request, and everything your heart desires must come to you.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If any man wishes to write a clear style, let him first be clear in his thoughts.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If goodness were only a theory, it were a pity it should be lost to the world. There are a number of things, the idea of which is a clear gain to the mind. Let people, for instance, rail at friendship, genius, freedom, as long as they will --the very names of these despised qualities are better than anything else that could be substituted for them, and embalm even the most envenomed satire against them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Having books published is very destructive to writing. It is even worse than making love too much. Because when you make love too much at least you get a damned clarte that is like no other light. A very clear and hollow light.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]
A clear understanding of negative emotions dismisses them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Those who search beyond the natural limits will retain good hearing and clear vision, their bodies will remain light and strong, and although they grow old in years they will remain able-bodied and flourishing; and those who are able-bodied can govern toMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If we could sniff or swallow something that would, for five or six hours each day, abolish our solitude as individuals, atone us with our fellows in a glowing exaltation of affection and make life in all its aspects seem not only worth living, but divinely beautiful and significant, and if this heavenly, world-transfiguring drug were of such a kind that we could wake up next morning with a clear head and an undamaged constitution -- then, it seems to me, all our problems (and not merely the one small problem of discovering a novel pleasure) would be wholly solved and earth would become paradise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We never fully grasp the import of any true statement until we have a clear notion of what the opposite untrue statement would be.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Heat and animosity, contest and conflict, may sharpen the wits, although they rarely do; they never strengthen the understanding, clear the perspicacity, guide the judgment, or improve the heart.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our American professors like their literature clear and cold and pure and very dead.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Give to us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for -- because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If I were to be taken hostage, I would not plead for release nor would I want my government to be blackmailed. I think certain government officials, industrialists and celebrated persons should make it clear they are prepared to be sacrificed if taken hostage. If that were done, what gain would there be for terrorists in taking hostages?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is only too clear that man is not at home in this universe, and yet he is not good enough to deserve a better.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

There is no road to success but through a clear strong purpose. Nothing can take its place. A purpose underlies character, culture, position, attainment of every part.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A matter that becomes clear ceases to concern us.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I consider criticism merely a preliminary excitement, a statement of things a writer has to clear up in his own head sometime or other, probably antecedent to writing; of no value unless it come to fruit in the created work later.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A clear conscience is a soft pillow.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Whenever, therefore, people are deceived and form opinions wide of the truth, it is clear that the error has slid into their minds through the medium of certain resemblances to that truth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The voice of conscience is so delicate that it is easy to stifle it; but it is also so clear that it is impossible to mistake it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The techniques of opening conversation are universal. I knew long ago and rediscovered that the best way to attract attention, help, and conversation is to be lost. A man who seeing his mother starving to death on a path kicks her in the stomach to clear the way, will cheerfully devote several hours of his time giving wrong directions to a total stranger who claims to be lost.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Certainly a leader needs a clear vision of the organization and where it is going, but a vision is of little value unless it is shared in a way so as to generate enthusiasm and commitment. Leadership and communication are inseparable.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Any historian of the literature of the modern age will take virtually for granted the adversary intention, the actually subversive intention, that characterizes modern writing -- he will perceive its clear purpose of detaching the reader from the habits of thought and feeling that the larger culture imposes, of giving him a ground and a vantage point from which to judge and condemn, and perhaps revise, the culture that produces him.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
