objects

Anger and jealousy can no more bear to lose sight of their objects than love.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Music is a means of giving form to our inner feelings, without attaching them to events or objects in the world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is a misfortune that necessity has induced men to accord greater license to this formidable engine, in order to obtain liberty, than can be borne with less important objects in view; for the press, like fire, is an excellent servant, but a terrible master.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The goal of all inanimate objects is to resist man and ultimately defeat him.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
He who observes etiquette but objects to lying is like someone who dresses fashionably but wears no vest.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Luckless is the country in which the symbols of procreation are the objects of shame, while the agents of destruction are honored! And yet you call that member your pudendum, or shameful part, as if there were anything more glorious than creating life, or anything more atrocious than taking it away.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My movie is born first in my head, dies on paper; is resuscitated by the living persons and real objects I use, which are killed on film but, placed in a certain order and projected on to a screen, come to life again like flowers in water.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Objects close to the eye shut out much larger objects on the horizon; and splendors born only of the earth eclipse the stars. So it is with people who sometimes cover up the entire disc of eternity with a dollar, and so quench transcendent glories with a little shining dust.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All good music resembles something. Good music stirs by its mysterious resemblance to the objects and feelings which motivated it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Change begets change. Nothing propagates so fast. If a man habituated to a narrow circle of cares and pleasures, out of which he seldom travels, step beyond it, though for never so brief a space, his departure from the monotonous scene on which he has been an actor of importance would seem to be the signal for instant confusion. The mine which Time has slowly dug beneath familiar objects is sprung in an instant; and what was rock before, becomes but sand and dust.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
High aims form high characters, and great objects bring out great minds.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I believe that the first step in the setting of a real external world is the formation of the concept of bodily objects and of bodily objects of various kinds.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One principle reason why men are so often useless is that they divide and shift their attention among a multiplicity of objects and pursuits.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Just as love is an orientation which refers to all objects and is incompatible with the restriction to one object, so is reason a human faculty which must embrace the whole of the world with which man is confronted.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We are the slaves of objects around us, and appear little or important according as these contract or give us room to expand.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The seeing of objects involves many sources of information beyond those meeting the eye when we look at an object. It generally involves knowledge of the object derived from previous experience, and this experience is not limited to vision but may include the other senses: touch, taste, smell, hearing, and perhaps also temperature or pain.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nobody ever chooses the already unfortunate as objects of his loyal friendship.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Learned Institutions ought to be favorite objects with every free people. They throw that light over the public mind which is the best security against crafty and dangerous encroachments on the public liberty.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Communists have always played an active role in the fight by colonial countries for their freedom, because the short-term objects of Communism would always correspond with the long-term objects of freedom movements.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If the study of all these sciences which we have enumerated, should ever bring us to their mutual association and relationship, and teach us the nature of the ties which bind them together, I believe that the diligent treatment of them will forward the objects which we have in view, and that the labor, which otherwise would be fruitless, will be well bestowed.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If the secret sorrows of everyone could be read on their forehead, how many who now cause envy would suddenly become the objects of pity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The darkness of death is like the evening twilight; it makes all objects appear more lovely to the dying.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What right have you to take the word wealth, which originally meant well-being, and degrade and narrow it by confining it to certain sorts of material objects measured by money.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The one and only formative power given to man Is thought. By his thinking he not only makes character, but body and affairs, for as he thinketh within himself, so is he. Prejudice is a mist, which in our journey through the world often dims the brightest and obscures the best of all the good and glorious objects that meet us on our way.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I was afraid that by observing objects with my eyes and trying to comprehend them with each of my other senses I might blind my soul altogether.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Fewer and fewer Americans possess objects that have a patina, old furniture, grandparents pots and pans -- the used things, warm with generations of human touch, essential to a human landscape. Instead, we have our paper phantoms, transistorized landscapes. A featherweight portable museum.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Though collecting quotations could be considered as merely an ironic mimetism -- victimless collecting, as it were... in a world that is well on its way to becoming one vast quarry, the collector becomes someone engaged in a pious work of salvage. The course of modern history having already sapped the traditions and shattered the living wholes in which precious objects once found their place, the collector may now in good conscience go about excavating the choicer, more emblematic fragments.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The pursuit of what is true and the practice of what is good are the two most important objects of philosophy.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The discover of what is true, and the practice of that which is good, are the two most important objects of philosophy.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nobody seriously questions the principle that it is the function of mass culture to maintain public morale, and certainly nobody in the mass audience objects to having his morale maintained.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In our judgment of human transactions, the law of optics is reversed, we see most dimly the objects which are close around us.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We quaff the cup of life with eager haste without draining it, instead of which it only overflows the brim -- objects press around us, filling the mind with the throng of desires that wait upon them, so that we have no room for the thoughts of death.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Hardly any actor objects to press. It's a question of it being done in the way they like to see it done, meaning to get down to the serious interview what the profession is so we can reach out to the people to help them get along.More [05/10/2006 12:05:00]
Kyle: I've learned something today. You see, the basis of all reasoning is the mind's awareness of itself. What we think, the external objects we perceive, are all like actors that come on and off stage. But our consciousness, the stage itself, is always present to us.
Cartman: [astonished] Tits.More [05/02/2007 12:05:00]
Cyrus Grissom: Considering my audience, I am going to make this quick and simple.
Cyrus Grissom: [points to objects in the sand] This is the boneyard, this is the hanger and this is our plane.
Con #1: [points to a rock] Okay, what's that?
Cyrus Grissom: That? That's a rock!
[knocks it out of the way]
Con #1: Okay.More [07/12/2007 12:07:00]

Narrator: Fairy tales tell, as their labels imply / Stories of magic, of creatures that fly / With giants and dragons and ogres and elves / And inanimate objects that speak for themselves / There's romance and danger and plotting of schemes / There's good guys and bad guys and some guys in-between / A fairy tale also reveals some sort of truth / The perils of choices we make in our youth./ But our story today is different in theme./ For our hero had no choice or so it would seem./ It starts with a fairy bestowing a spell./ This one's a baby named Ella of Frell.More [10/10/2007 12:10:00]
Curiosity is natural to the soul of man and interesting objects have a powerful influence on our affections.More [10/23/2007 12:10:00]
Lawrence Robertson: Well, we both know you're not here on police business.
Detective Del Spooner: No, I'm just a regular 6'2", 200lb civilian...
[sweeps objects off Robertson's desk]
Detective Del Spooner: here to kick another civilian's ass.More [04/07/2008 12:04:00]
Of all the objects of hatred, a woman once loved is the most hateful.More [05/12/2008 12:05:00]
Gantu: What is that monstrosity?
Jumba: Monstrosity? What you see before you is the first of a new species. I call it Experiment 626. He is fire-proof, bullet-proof, and can think faster than super computer. He can see in the dark, and lift objects three thousand times his size. His only instinct... to destroy everything he touches! Ha ha ha ha!
Grand Councilwoman: So it IS a monster.
Jumba: Eh, just a little one.More [07/21/2008 12:07:00]

Narrator:
How do you do? My name is Deems Taylor, and it's my very pleasant duty to welcome you here on behalf of Walt Disney, Leopold Stokowski, and all the other artists and musicians whose combined talents went into the creation of this new form of entertainment, "Fantasia". What you're going to see are the designs and pictures and stories that music inspired in the minds and imaginations of a group of artists. In other words, these are not going to be the interpretations of trained musicians, which I think is all to the good. Now there are three kinds of music on this "Fantasia" program. First, there's the kind that tells a definite story. Then there's the kind that while it has no specific plot, it does paint a series of more or less definite pictures. And then there's a third kind, music that exists simply for its own sake. Now, the number that opens our "Fantasia" program, the "Toccata and Fugue", is music of this third kind, what we call "absolute music". Even the title has no meaning beyond a description of the form of the music. What you will see on the screen is a picture of the various abstract images that might pass through your mind if you sat in a concert hall listening to this music. At first, you're more or less conscious of the orchestra. So our picture opens with a series of impressions of the conductor and the players. Then the music begins to suggest other things to your imagination. They might be, oh, just masses of color or they may be cloud forms or great landscapes or vague shadows or geometrical objects floating in space. So now we present the "Toccata and Fugue In D Minor" by Johann Sebastian Bach, interpreted in pictures by Walt Disney and his associates, and in music by the Philadelphia Orchestra and its conductor, Leopold Stokowski.

Don Diego Vega:
I must please ask you to change the subject. His Excellency objects to talk of throat-cutting.



Captain Esteban Pasquale:
Quiet, you Popinjay! I have no reason to letting you live either.



Don Diego Vega:
What a pleasant coincidence. I feel exactly the same way about you Capitan.



Captain Esteban Pasquale:
You wouldn't care to translate that feeling into action would you?



Don Diego Vega:
I might be tempted. If I had a weapon.



Captain Esteban Pasquale:
Would you.

Why, Dick Tracy. Proposing so early in the morning?

Why don't ya just marry him so he can stop proposin'?

Starbuck, first mate:
To be enraged with a dumb brute that acted out of blind instinct is blasphemous.



Captain Ahab:
Speak not to me of blasphemy, man; I'd strike the sun if it insulted me. Look ye, Starbuck, all visible objects are but as pasteboard masks. Some inscrutable yet reasoning thing puts forth the molding of their features. The white whale tasks me; he heaps me. Yet he is but a mask. 'Tis the thing behind the mask I chiefly hate; the malignant thing that has plagued mankind since time began; the thing that maws and mutilates our race, not killing us outright but letting us live on, with half a heart and half a lung.

Narrator:
From time immemorial the Earth has been bombarded by objects from outer space. Bits and pieces of the Universe piercing our atmosphere in an invasion that never ends. Meteor, the shooting stars on which so many earthly wishes have been born! Of the thousands that plummet toward us, the greater part are destroyed in a firey flash as they strike the layers of the air that encircle us. Only a small percentage survives. Most of those fall into the water which covers two-thirds of our world. But from time to time from the beginning of time a very few meteors have struck the crust of the Earth and formed craters - craters of all sizes sought after, poured over by scientists of all nations for the priceless knowledge buried within them. In every moment of every day they come from planets belonging to stars whose dying light is too far away to be seen. From infinity they come. Meteors! Another strange calling card from the limitless regions of space - its substance unknown, its secrets unexplored. The meteor lies dormant in the night - waiting!

There's an element in town that objects.



Henry:
Objects? Objects to what?



Chamlee:
They say he isn't fit to be buried there.



Robert:
What? In Boot Hill?



Henry:
Why, there's nothing up there but murderous cutthroats and derelict old barflies, and if they ever felt exclusive brother, they're past it now.

[X wanders through the hotel's corridors cataloging items he sees]



X:
Empty salons. Corridors. Salons. Doors. Doors. Salons. Empty chairs, deep armchairs, thick carpets. Heavy hangings. Stairs, steps. Steps, one after the other. Glass objects, objects still intact, empty glasses. A glass that falls, three, two, one, zero. Glass partition, letters.
