limit

The mortal enemies of man are not his fellows of another continent or race; they are the aspects of the physical world which limit or challenge his control, the disease germs that attack him and his domesticated plants and animals, and the insects that carry many of these germs as well as working notable direct injury. This is not the age of man, however great his superiority in size and intelligence; it is literally the age of insects.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Psychoanalysis can unravel some of the forms of madness; it remains a stranger to the sovereign enterprise of unreason. It can neither limit nor transcribe, nor most certainly explain, what is essential in this enterprise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The way to activate the seeds of your creation is by making choices about the results you want to create. When you make a choice, you activate vast human energies and resources, which otherwise go untapped. All too often people fail to focus their choices upon results and therefore their choices are ineffective. If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is compromise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I am learning to understand rather than immediately judge or to be judged. I cannot blindly follow the crowd and accept their approach. I will not allow myself to indulge in the usual manipulating game of role creation. Fortunately for me, my self-knowledge has transcended that and I have come to understand that life is best to be lived and not to be conceptualized. I am happy because I am growing daily and I am honestly not knowing where the limit lies. To be certain, every day there can be a revelation or a new discovery. I treasure the memory of the past misfortunes. It has added more to my bank of fortitude.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

We live in oppressive times. We have, as a nation, become our own thought police; but instead of calling the process by which we limit our expression of dissent and wonder censorship, we call it concern for commercial viability.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
An educational method that shall have liberty as its basis must intervene to help the child to a conquest of liberty. That is to say, his training must be such as shall help him to diminish as much as possible the social bonds which limit his activity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Today, the notion of progress in a single line without goal or limit seems perhaps the most parochial notion of a very parochial century.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

In the world of knowledge, the essential Form of Good is the limit of our inquiries, and can barely be perceived; but, when perceived, we cannot help concluding that it is in every case the source of all that is bright and beautiful --in the visible world giving birth to light and its master, and in the intellectual world dispensing, immediately and with full authority, truth and reason --and that whosoever would act wisely, either in private or in public, must set this Form of Good before his eyes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

I fear chiefly lest my expression may not be extravagant enough, may not wander far enough beyond the narrow limit of my daily experience, so as to be adequate to the truth of which I have been convinced. Extravagance! it depends on how you are yarded.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is a limit to the application of democratic methods. You can inquire of all the passengers as to what type of car they like to ride in, but it is impossible to question them as to whether to apply the brakes when the train is at full speed and accident threatens.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Look, when people came after me for doing 'Indecent Proposal' or 'Disclosure,' I thought, 'Ridiculous.' These people are trying to limit me as an actor. Are they saying I can't play these roles? Well, I've proved I can.More [11/02/2005 12:11:00]
I don't really judge what should be or what shouldn't be. I'm very much against that, because in China we had all the rules. As a child you have your grandparents, your parents, your teachers... I was in the army. I was in the Tibet army for three years when I was 14... Therefore, I'm very much against those rules in society... I think they limit you.More [03/23/2006 12:03:00]

Alyssa: You know, I didn't just heed what I was taught, men and women should be together, it's the natural way, that kind of thing. I'm not with you because of what family, society, life tried to instill in me from day one. The way the world is, how seldom it is that you meet that one person who just *gets* you - it's so rare. My parents didn't really have it. There were no examples set for me in the world of male-female relationships. And to cut oneself off from finding that person, to immediately halve your options by eliminating the possibility of finding that one person within your own gender, that just seemed stupid to me. So I didn't. But then you came along. You, the one least likely. I mean, you were a guy.
Holden: Still am.
Alyssa: And while I was falling for you I put a ceiling on that, because you *were* a guy. Until I remembered why I opened the door to women in the first place: to not limit the likelihood of finding that one person who'd complement me so completely. So here we are. I was thorough when I looked for you. And I feel justified lying in your arms, 'cause I got here on my own terms, and I have no question there was some place I didn't look. And for me that makes all the difference.More [07/11/2007 12:07:00]

John Spartan: Now, Phoenix could be anywhere, but not being coded could hurt him and limit his options...
John Spartan: That is correct. Money is out-moded. All transactions are through code.

Rufus: He still digs humanity, but it bothers Him to see the shit that gets carried out in His name - wars, bigotry, televangelism. But especially the factioning of all the religions. He said humanity took a good idea and, like always, built a belief structure on it.
Bethany: Having beliefs isn't good?
Rufus: I think it's better to have ideas. You can change an idea. Changing a belief is trickier. Life should malleable and progressive; working from idea to idea permits that. Beliefs anchor you to certain points and limit growth; new ideas can't generate. Life becomes stagnant.More [09/20/2007 12:09:00]

Jeannie Ashcroft: You're not going to burn his apartment down or bite him, or anything?
Andie: No! I'm going to limit myself to doing everything girls do wrong in relationships. Basically, everything we know guys hate. I'll be clingy, needy...
Jeannie Ashcroft: Be touchy-feely.
Andie: Yeah.
Jeannie Ashcroft: Ooh, call him in the middle of the night and tell him everything you had to eat that day.
Michelle Rubin: What's wrong with that?

Richard Scruggs: I know what you're facing, Jeff. And, I think I know how you're feeling. In the Navy I flew A-6's off carriers. In combat, events have a duration of seconds, sometimes minutes. But what you're going through goes on day in and day out. Whether you're ready for it or not, week in, week out. Month after month after month. Whether you're up or whether you're down. You're assaulted psychologically. You're assaulted financially, which is its own special kind of violence because it's directed at your kids. What school can you afford? How will that affect their lives? You're asking yourself, "Will that limit what they may become?" You feel your whole family's future's compromised, held hostage. I do know how it is.More [04/17/2008 12:04:00]

Mr. Neff, why don't you drop by tomorrow evening about eight-thirty. He'll be in then.



Walter Neff:
Who?



Phyllis:
My husband. You were anxious to talk to him weren't you?



Walter Neff:
Yeah, I was, but I'm sort of getting over the idea, if you know what I mean.



Phyllis:
There's a speed limit in this state, Mr. Neff. Forty-five miles an hour.



Walter Neff:
How fast was I going, officer?



Phyllis:
I'd say around ninety.



Walter Neff:
Suppose you get down off your motorcycle and give me a ticket.



Phyllis:
Suppose I let you off with a warning this time.



Walter Neff:
Suppose it doesn't take.



Phyllis:
Suppose I have to whack you over the knuckles.



Walter Neff:
Suppose I bust out crying and put my head on your shoulder.



Phyllis:
Suppose you try putting it on my husband's shoulder.



Walter Neff:
That tears it.

Dr. Cal Meacham:
"Iterociter incorporating planetary generator. Iterociter with voltarator. With astroscope."



Joe Wilson:
Here's something my wife could use in the house. An "iterociter incorporating an electron sorter."



Dr. Cal Meacham:
Oh, she'd probably gain 20 pounds while it did all the work for her. You know, Joe, according to this, there's no limit to what it can do. Laying a 4-lane highway at the rate of a mile a minute would be a cinch.



Joe Wilson:
Cal... maybe we've been working too hard.



Dr. Cal Meacham:
"Complete line of iterociter parts, incorporating greater advances than hitherto known in the field of electronics." What exactly is an iterociter?

I don't know, and I don't want to know.

Well, I do. I want to know what it is and what it does. Order the list of parts on these pages.

Narrator:
Where is the beginning? But what beginning? God created heaven and earth. But one should be able to put it better. To say that the limits of language, of my language, are those of the world, of my world, and that in speaking, I limit the world, I end it. And when mysterious, logical death abolishes those limits, there will be no question, no answer, just vagueness.

Interviewer:
You missed the question here on the speed limit in a school zone.



Grady Wilson:
