"An art whose medium is language will always show a high degree of critical creativeness, for speech is itself a critique of life: it names, it characterizes, it passes judgment, in that it creates.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Restlessness is discontent and discontent is the first necessity of progress. Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every thing secret degenerates, even the administration of justice; nothing is safe that does not show how it can bear discussion and publicity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In nine cases out of ten, a woman had better show more affection than she feels.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Smile and others will smile back. Smile to show how transparent, how candid you are. Smile if you have nothing to say. Most of all, do not hide the fact you have nothing to say nor your total indifference to others. Let this emptiness, this profound indifference shine out spontaneously in your smile.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The English Bible -- a book which, if everything else in our language should perish, would alone suffice to show the whole extent of its beauty and power.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If your descent is from heroic sires, show in your life a remnant of their fires.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

In great matters men show themselves as they wish to be seen; in small matters, as they are.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The average educated man in America has about as much knowledge of what a political idea is as he has of the principles of counterpoint. Each is a thing used in politics or music which those fellows who practice politics or music manipulate somehow. Show him one and he will deny that it is politics at all. It must be corrupt or he will not recognize it. He has only seen dried figs. He has only thought dried thoughts. A live thought or a real idea is against the rules of his mind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Let them show me a cottage where there are not the same vices of which they accuse the courts.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Men speak of natural rights, but I challenge any one to show where in nature any rights existed or were recognized until there was established for their declaration and protection a duly promulgated body of corresponding laws.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A set of rules laid out by professionals to show the way they would like to act if it was profitable.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Self-revelation is a cruel process. The real picture, the real you never emerges. Looking for it is as bewildering as trying to know how you really look. Ten different mirrors show you ten different faces.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What you are will show in what you do.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Most of our censure of others is only oblique praise of self, uttered to show the wisdom and superiority of the speaker. It has all the invidiousness of self-praise, and all the ill-desert of falsehood.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The clearest way to show what the rule of law means to us in everyday life is to recall what has happened when there is no rule of law.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Difficulties are things that show a person what they are.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Friends show their love in times of trouble...More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most successful career must show a waste of strength that might have removed mountains, and the most unsuccessful is not that of the man who is taken unprepared, but of him who has prepared and is never taken. On a tragedy of that kind our national morality is duly silent.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Quotation... A writer expresses himself in words that have been used before because they give his meaning better than he can give it himself, or because they are beautiful or witty, or because he expects them to touch a cord of association in his reader, or because he wishes to show that he is learned and well read. Quotations due to the last motive are invariably ill-advised; the discerning reader detects it and is contemptuous; the undiscerning is perhaps impressed, but even then is at the same time repelled, pretentious quotations being the surest road to tedium.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Is discord going to show itself while we are still fighting, is the Jew once again worth less than another? Oh, it is sad, very sad, that once more, for the umpteenth time, the old truth is confirmed: What one Christian does is his own responsibility, what one Jew does is thrown back at all Jews.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

In a democracy -- even if it is a so-called democracy like our white-litist one -- the greatest veneration one can show the rule of law is to keep a watch on it, and to reserve the right to judge unjust laws and the subversion of the function of the law by the power of the state. That vigilance is the most important proof of respect for the law.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Keep your words sweet -- you may have to eat them. I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We do not fear censorship for we have no wish to offend with improprieties or obscenities, but we do demand, as a right, the liberty to show the dark side of wrong, that we may illuminate the bright side of virtue -- the same liberty that is conceded to the art of the written word, that art to which we owe the Bible and the works of Shakespeare.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Show me the business man or institution not guided by sentiment and service; by the idea that he profits most who serves best and I will show you a man or an outfit that is dead or dying.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A grave blockhead should always go about with a lively one -- they show one another off to the best advantage.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My attitude toward punctuation is that it ought to be as conventional as possible. The game of golf would lose a good deal if croquet mallets and billiard cues were allowed on the putting green. You ought to be able to show that you can do it a good deal better than anyone else with the regular tools before you have a license to bring in your own improvements.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Some people show evil as a great racehorse shows breeding. They have the dignity of a hard chancre.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If you wish me to weep, you must first show grief yourself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
None of us can boast about the morality of our ancestors. The record does not show that Adam and Eve were ever married.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The attitude of unhappiness is not only painful, it is mean and ugly. What can be more base and unworthy than the pining, puling, mumping mood, no matter by what outward ills it may have been engendered? What is more injurious to others? What less helpful as a way out of the difficulty? It but fastens and perpetuates the trouble which occasioned it, and increases the total evil of the situation. At all costs, then, we ought to reduce the sway of that mood; we ought to scout it in ourselves and others, and never show it tolerance.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The virtue of dress rehearsals is that they are a free show for a select group of artists and friends of the author, and where for one unique evening the audience is almost expurgated of idiots.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Adversities do not make a man frail. They show what sort of man he is.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Photographers never have much incentive to show the world as it is.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Show me a man with very little money and I will show you a bum.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One cannot demand of a scholar that he show himself a scholar everywhere in society, but the whole tenor of his behavior must none the less betray the thinker, he must always be instructive, his way of judging a thing must even in the smallest matters be such that people can see what it will amount to when, quietly and self-collected, he puts this power to scholarly use.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There are no signposts in the sky to show a man has passed that way before. There are no channels marked. The flier breaks each second into new uncharted seas.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The opposition is indispensable. A good statesman, like any other sensible human being, always learns more from his opponents than from his fervent supporters. For his supporters will push him to disaster unless his opponents show him where the dangers are. So if he is wise he will often pray to be delivered from his friends, because they will ruin him. But though it hurts, he ought also to pray never to be left without opponents; for they keep him on the path of reason and good sense.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I was frustrated out of my mind, trying to figure out the will of God. I was doing everything but getting into the presence of God and asking Him to show me.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Close scrutiny will show that most crisis situations are opportunities to either advance, or stay where you are.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Be smart, but never show it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The value of action is that we make mistakes; mistakes show us what we need to learn.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A crown, golden in show is but a wreath of thorns.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Show me the leader and I will know his men. Show me the men and I will know their leader.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Show me a good loser and I will show you a loser.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
