reasons

If all be true that I do think, there are five reasons we should drink: Good wine -- a friend -- or being dry -- or lest we should be by and by -- or any other reason why.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Man has lost the basic skill of the ape, the ability to scratch its back. Which gave it extraordinary independence, and the liberty to associate for reasons other than the need for mutual back-scratching.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One of the fundamental reasons why so many doctors become cynical and disillusioned is precisely because, when the abstract idealism has worn thin, they are uncertain about the value of the actual lives of the patients they are treating. This is not because they are callous or personally inhuman: it is because they live in and accept a society which is incapable of knowing what a human life is worth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Metaphysics is the finding of bad reasons for what we believe upon instinct; but to find these reasons is no less an instinct.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

One of the great reasons for the popularity of strikes is that they give the suppressed self a sense of power. For once the human tool knows itself a man, able to stand up and speak a word or strike a blow.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nations have always good reasons for being what they are, and the best of all is that they cannot be otherwise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What persuades men and women to mistake each other from time to time for gods or vermin is ideology. One can understand well enough how human beings may struggle and murder for good material reasons -- reasons connected, for instance, with their physical survival. It is much harder to grasp how they may come to do so in the name of something as apparently abstract as ideas. Yet ideas are what men and women live by, and will occasionally die for.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I should like to know what is the proper function of women, if it is not to make reasons for husbands to stay at home, and still stronger reasons for bachelors to go out.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Under the species of Syndicalism and Fascism there appears for the first time in Europe a type of man who does not want to give reasons or to be right, but simply shows himself resolved to impose his opinions.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Youth does not require reasons for living, it only needs pretexts.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One of the reasons why the Ten Commandments are so short and to the point is the fact they were given direct and did not come out of committees.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One of the many reasons for the bewildering and tragic character of human existence is the fact that social organization is at once necessary and fatal. Men are forever creating such organizations for their own convenience and forever finding themselves the victims of their home-made monsters.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For undemocratic reasons and for motives not of State, they arrive at their conclusions -- largely inarticulate. Being void of self-expression they confide their views to none; but sometimes in a smoking room, one learns why things were done.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A prince never lacks legitimate reasons to break his promise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One of the reasons it has seemed so difficult for a person to change his habits, his personality, or his way of life, has been that heretofore nearly all efforts at change have been directed to the circumference of the self, so to speak, rather than to the center.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Decide promptly, but never give any reasons. Your decisions may be right, but your reasons are sure to be wrong.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A man always has two reasons for doing anything -- a good reason and the real reason.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

When men and women agree, it is only in their conclusions; their reasons are always different.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Prayer should be short, without giving God Almighty reasons why he should grant this, or that; he knows best what is good for us.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
History is hard to know, because of all the hired bullshit, but even without being sure of history it seems entirely reasonable to think that every now and then the energy of a whole generation comes to a head in a long fine flash, for reasons that nobody really understands at the time -- and which never explain, in retrospect, what actually happened.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Man always has two reasons for the things he does; the logical one and the real one.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Americans are willing to go to enormous trouble and expense defending their principles with arms, very little trouble and expense advocating them with words. Temperamentally we are ready to die for certain principles (or, in the case of overripe adults, send youngsters to die), but we show little inclination to advertise the reasons for dying.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Some men have thousands of reasons why they cannot do what they want to, when all they need is one reason why they can.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The many many imponderables come together when a film opens and for all sorts of reasons it may or may not succeed.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
Why hate someone for the color of their skin when there are much better reasons to hate them.More [05/02/2006 12:05:00]
It's more important to shock and outrage for valid reasons than it is to, say, make a conventional film. I don't think David Cronenberg is even capable of making a safe, conventional film.More [05/09/2006 12:05:00]
“I think I'm in the best place I've ever been in so many ways. I've just come out of five years of very difficult times for numerous reasons and yet at the same time it's lead to such growth. It's very exciting that way.”More [06/01/2006 12:06:00]

Which is a wonderful irony, I have property there. I go back every chance I get. One of the main reasons I actually wrote the book, agreed to write it having never wanted to do that in my life, very intimidating by the way to write a book.More [09/27/2006 12:09:00]
“I want to work with great directors and try not to put too much pressure on myself and just read things for the story and recognize when I'm drawn to something for the right reasons and try to maintain some sanity.”More [10/03/2006 12:10:00]
One of the reasons I did this, because I wasn't really looking for another science fiction film, was that my daughter can see it. She's 9 and it's really a good film for all ages.More [10/08/2006 12:10:00]
One of the reasons my diagnosis was not in black and white was because I didn't want it to be. Denial with a capitol D.More [10/12/2006 12:10:00]
“I wanted to take something that's very intimidating and make it accessible, make it something every woman can relate to and be a part of, ... One of the reasons why I got very known as a model was because I used to work the runway with a lot of movement. I didn't just walk up and down unless the designer asked for that. So that's what you're going to see, women working the runway with a lot of oomph.”More [10/15/2006 12:10:00]

As long as it's for the right reasons and not because she's dissatisfied with anything here at NBC. But it would be a huge loss.”More [11/16/2006 12:11:00]
Yes, we were looking for a Faith spin-off, but then Faith backed down. Eliza got a really wonderful offer over on Fox in a show, and, for reasons I didn't talk to her about, she decided to go there, and everyone respects that.More [11/22/2006 12:11:00]
Governor Swann: Even a good decision if made for the wrong reasons can be a wrong decision.More [02/19/2007 12:02:00]

Abou Fatma: Are you a deserter?
Harry Faversham: Something like that. I was sent to fight and I ran away.
Abou Fatma: Why?
Harry Faversham: Why? I just... There are many reasons why. Mostly I was afraid.
Abou Fatma: [laughs] I found you halfdead crossing the desert alone. And you say you are afraid?
Harry Faversham: There's a different kind of fear. Why are you protecting me?
Abou Fatma: God put you in my way. I have no choice.
Harry Faversham: God? An Englishman... and a Christian? You must have done something terrible to offend him.
[laughs]More [04/18/2007 12:04:00]

Dr. Peter Blood: It seems that you're continually doing me favors. Faith, I don't know why.
Arabella Bishop: Neither do I. Yes I do. It's because you're so very grateful and always thank me so prettily.
Dr. Peter Blood: Sure now, you don't blame me for resenting you and your favors.
Arabella Bishop: This is interesting. I've had men tell me they had reasons for admiring me... and some few have even laid claims to reasons for loving me. But for a man to store up reasons for resenting me... how refreshing! You must tell me a few of them.
Dr. Peter Blood: First, is reason enough: you bought me. I've had no lack of experiences in my time; but to be bought and sold was a new one. I was in no mood to thank my purchaser.
Arabella Bishop: That I can understand. Go on.
Dr. Peter Blood: I've resented you because your name's Bishop. My thoughts have lumped you with your uncle. How was I to know, be dad, that a devil could have... that a devil could have an angel for a niece.
Arabella Bishop: From a resentful man that is a pretty fair compliment.More [07/08/2007 12:07:00]
Morpheus: Link?
Link: Yessir?
Morpheus: Given your situation, I can't say I fully understand your reasons for volunteering to operate on my ship. However, if you wish to continue to do so, I must ask you to do one thing.
Link: What's that, sir?
Morpheus: ...To trust me.
Link: Yessir. I will, sir.
[Morpheus looks at him for a moment]

[Galen has interrupted the sacrifice of Princess Elspeth to the dragon, scaring everyone away except for Tyrian]
Tyrian: I knew I'd find you here. Well, I'm not as sentimental as his majesty. The kingdom, everyone of us, needs this sacrifice. If you intend to interfere, you'll have to kill me.
Galen: I've plenty of reasons to kill you that have nothing to do with this sacrifice.More [09/28/2007 12:09:00]
[Kronk's Shoulder Angel and Devil debate saving Kuzco]
Kronk's Shoulder Devil: Listen up, big guy. I got three good reasons why you should just walk away. Number one. Look at that guy! He's got that sissy stringy music thing.
Kronk's Shoulder Angel: We've been through this. It's a harp, and you know it.
Kronk's Shoulder Devil: Oh, right. That's a harp, and that's a dress.
Kronk's Shoulder Angel: Robe!
Kronk's Shoulder Devil: Reason number two. Look what I can do. Ha-ha, ha!
[does one-armed handstand]
Kronk: But what does that have to do with me?
Kronk's Shoulder Angel: No, no. He's got a point.
Kronk: Listen, you guys. You're sort of confusing me, so, um, begone... or, um, however I get rid of you guys.
Kronk's Shoulder Devil: That'll do.
[Angel and devil disappear]More [10/10/2007 12:10:00]
Dr. Barringer, Clinic Director: There is one outside chance for a cure. I think of it as shock treatment - as I said, it's a very outside chance... Have you ever heard of exorcism? Well, it's a stylized ritual in which the rabbi or the priest try to drive out the so-called invading spirit. It's been pretty much discarded these days except by the Catholics who keep it in the closet as a sort of an embarrassment, but uh, it has worked. In fact, although not for the reasons they think, of course. It's purely a force of suggestion. The victim's belief in possession is what helped cause it, so in that same way, a belief in the power of exorcism can make it disappear.
Chris MacNeil: You're telling me that I should take my daughter to a witch doctor? Is that it?More [10/22/2007 12:10:00]
Terence Mann: Ray, people will come Ray. They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your driveway not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door as innocent as children, longing for the past. Of course, we won't mind if you look around, you'll say. It's only $20 per person. They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it: for it is money they have and peace they lack. And they'll walk out to the bleachers; sit in shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along one of the baselines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they'll watch the game and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come Ray. The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.More [11/05/2007 12:11:00]
One of the reasons I think the ultra right-wing has such power in this country is that no one talks out.More [12/25/2007 12:12:00]
Sam Harris: If you're trying to get a medical degree, and you have all kinds of ideas about human health that are, that cannot be substantiated by evidence, uh, and you talk about your own strong convictions and yet can't adduce any reasons for them, you are, you know, not only are you not getting a degree, you are just, you are essentially laughed out of the room. And there's nothing wrong with that. You know, lives depend on that being the case.More [12/26/2007 12:12:00]
