Grammar and logic free language from being at the mercy of the tone of voice. Grammar protects us against misunderstanding the sound of an uttered name; logic protects us against what we say have double meaning.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The more I work with the body, keeping my assumptions in a temporary state of reservation, the more I appreciate and sympathize with a given disease. The body no longer appears as a sick or irrational demon, but as a process with its own inner logic and wisdom.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Next to inflation, majority rule is the most ingenious scheme ever contrived by government. Most people have never dared to question the basic morality or logic in the assumption that the majority should have power over the minority. A majority of the people in the South once believed in black slavery. Did that make it moral? A lynch mob is majority rule stripped of its fancy trappings and its facade of respectability. In a community where homosexuals outnumber heterosexuals, should the majority have the right to outlaw sex between married partners of the opposite sex? In a community where atheists outnumber non- atheists, should the majority have the right to outlaw the practice of religion? ... a dictatorship allows only a small number of people to interfere with the rights of others, a democracy makes it possible for great numbers of people to impose their will on others -- through the force of government. Is an act of aggression more right if carried out by the majority than by a dictator? Since approximately half the eligible voters vote this means that approximately 75% of the people are ruled by 25% of the people.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Murder is a horror, but an often necessary horror, never criminal, which it is essential to tolerate in a republican State. Is it or is it not a crime? If it is not, why make laws for its punishment? And if it is, by what barbarous logic do you, to punish it, duplicate it by another crime?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Capitalism inevitably and by virtue of the very logic of its civilization creates, educates and subsidizes a vested interest in social unrest.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Victims suggest innocence. And innocence, by the inexorable logic that governs all relational terms, suggests guilt.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The fact that logic cannot satisfy us awakens an almost insatiable hunger for the irrational.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Ringo: Hey, would you believe me if I told you I was being followed by a yellow submarine?
Police Officer: No, no, I would not.
Ringo: Oh, yeah, didn't think you would. I could've sworn I saw a yellow submarine. But that's not logic now. Is it? It must've been one of them "Unidentified Flying Cupcakes". Or a figment of me imagination. But I don't have an imagination.More [10/12/2005 12:10:00]
My mother's incredibly giving, almost too giving at times. And, my dad is a real logical person. He's got logic for every situation. They've been married for 24 years, so there was that stability, also. I really learned to think on my own at a very young age.More [11/19/2006 12:11:00]
Stan: Guys, we have no choice. We're gonna have to move away. Environmental activists don't use logic or reason.More [05/02/2007 12:05:00]
The Architect: There are two doors. The door to your right leads to the Source and the salvation of Zion. The door to your left leads back to the Matrix, to her... and to the end of your species. As you adequately put, the problem is choice. But we already know what you are going to do, don't we? Already I can see the chain reaction: the chemical precursors that signal the onset of an emotion, designed specifically to overwhelm logic and reason. An emotion that is already blinding you to the simple and obvious truth: she is going to die and there is nothing you can do to stop it.More [07/13/2007 12:07:00]
Batty Koda: [singing] Yo, the name is Batty / The logic is erratic / Potato in a jacket / Toys in the attic / I rock and I ramble / My brain is scrambled / Rap like an animal, but I'm a mammal.More [11/03/2007 12:11:00]

Jo March: I find it poor logic to say that women should vote because they are good. Men do not vote because they are good; they vote because they are male, and women should vote, not because we are angels and men are animals, but because we are human beings and citizens of this country.
Mr. Mayer: You should have been a lawyer, Miss March.
Jo March: I should have been a great many things, Mr. Mayer.More [08/02/2008 12:08:00]

Skye Quartermaine Jacks:
No. Luke, it's called logic and common sense.

No, no, it's called blind panic! Look, I'm not going to die because this bimbo is too drunk or too dumb to walk out of a burning building.



Luke Spencer:
Feel free to leave us.



Faith Rosco:
Uh, no. I saved your life. I expect you to return the favor.



Skye Quartermaine Jacks:
You know, I may loathe that woman, but she's got a point. Look, you know, you and Faith, you want to go, go.

Carly Corinthos:
There is a strange kind of logic in this, though, that we'd end up here together. You - you were always my rock, my emergency brakes, you know that you are my best friend? Did you ever - do you ever think that we could've been more?



Jason Morgan:
Yeah.



Carly Corinthos:
Was there a possibility?



Jason Morgan:
I can't speak for you.



Carly Corinthos:
I'm not asking you to. You're dodging the question, come on. I just - I just need to know. Did you ever feel - did you ever feel more for me?



Jason Morgan:
Yes, I did.



Carly Corinthos:
Me, too. Why didn't we ever pursue it?



Jason Morgan:
There was always something in the way.



Carly Corinthos:
Now there's nothing in the way, Jason, except imminent death. Jason, kiss me good-bye.

[Rodney, is driving Michael early in the morning]



Michael Oliver Pritchard III:
What time is it Rod?



Rodney James:
Six, sir.



Michael Oliver Pritchard III:
Six?



Rodney James:
Six.



Michael Oliver Pritchard III:
Umm, I'm sick and tired of six.



Rodney James:
Sir?



Michael Oliver Pritchard III:
Why isn't it seven? Or even eight?



Rodney James:
Well, it was just five recently, sir, and six comes before seven. And eight.



Michael Oliver Pritchard III:
Oh, yes. I suppose there's a logic to that somewhere. But it's too tiring to think about.

Dr. John Seward:
[watches as Van Helsing is preparing to open Lucy's coffin] What are you doing?



Abraham Van Helsing:
As you see.



Dr. John Seward:
And then?



Abraham Van Helsing:
Cut off her head



Dr. John Seward:
[aghast] What? Mutilate her body? Why...? Why, it's... It's monstrous.



Abraham Van Helsing:
Friend John, I know you loved her. But there are certain things of which you have little knowledge. I do nothing without good cause. Come.


[lifts up lid to reveal an empty coffin]



Dr. John Seward:
[shocked] The body's not there.



Abraham Van Helsing:
[not surprised at all] That is good logic as far as it goes. Come.


[replaces lid and fastens it back down]



Abraham Van Helsing:

Walter Whitney:
It's hard to hate you, Nelson. You have just enough logic to give your sickness respectability. You've sentenced whole races of people to be born losers, and as the father of one, I object. Not that he was born with two strikes on him, but that you won't give him a third pitch to swing at. Goodbye, Nelson.



Nelson Longhurst:
You walk out this time, Walter, and I'll destroy you. When I'm through with you, you'll think shoveling horseshit is a step up.

George Smiley:
[about Otto Leipzig] And he had a partner, yes that comes back to me too. An immigrant. An East German.



Toby Esterhase:
Hm! Worse than East German. Saxon. Name of Kretzschmar. First name Claus, with a "C". Don't ask me why. I mean these guys have no logic at all. Claus Kretzschmar was also a creep. Blond creep, lot of muscles.



George Smiley:
But that was long ago, Toby.



Toby Esterhase:
Who cares? It was a perfect marriage.



George Smiley:

Carolinus:
There was time between the waning age of enchantment and the dawning age of logic when dragons flew the skies, free and unencumbered. Look down there Gorbash, my friend. On the top of the earth below us, confusion and chaos reign. All mankind is facing an epic choice: a world of magic or a world of science. Which will it be?

[On whether Kirk should assume command from Spock]



Spock:
If I may be so bold, it was a mistake for you to accept promotion. Commanding a starship is your first, best destiny; anything else is a waste of material.



Kirk:
I would not presume to debate you.



Spock:
That is wise. Were I to invoke logic, however, logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.



Kirk:
Or the one.



Spock:
You are my superior officer. You are also my friend. I have been and always shall be yours.

More [06/16/2016 01:06:42]
Kirk:
I suppose you're about to remind me that logic alone dictates your actions?



Spock:
I would not remind you of that which you know so well.

[Discussing the effects of the Genesis torpedo]



McCoy:
Dear Lord. You think we're intelligent enough to... suppose... what if this thing were used where life already exists?



Spock:
It would destroy such life in favor of its new matrix.



McCoy:
"Its new matrix"? Do you have any idea what you're saying?



Spock:
I was not attempting to evaluate its moral implications, Doctor. As a matter of cosmic history, it has always been easier to destroy than to create.



McCoy:
Not anymore; now we can do both at the same time! According to myth, the Earth was created in 6 days. Now, watch out. Here comes Genesis. We'll do it for you in 6 minutes!



Spock:
Really, Dr. McCoy. You must learn to govern your passions; they will be your undoing. Logic suggests...



McCoy:
Logic? My God, the man's talking about logic; we're talking about universal Armageddon! You green-blooded, inhuman...

Kate:
I don't have enough bread. Run over to Greenblatt's and get me a fresh rye bread.



Eugene:
Again? I just came back from Grennblatt's.



Kate:
So You'll go again.



Eugene:
I'm always going to the store. When I grow up, that's all I'll be trained to do, go to the store.



Kate:
You don't want to go?... Never mind, I'll go.



Eugene:
Don't do that! Don't make me feel guilty. I'll go.



Kate:
And get a quarter of a pound of butter.



Eugene:
I bought a quarter pound of butter this morning. Why don't you buy a half pound at a time?



Kate:
And suppose the house burned down this afternoon? Why do I need an extra quarter pound of butter?



Eugene:

Archdeacon, there's someone I'd like you to meet. There she is...

Professor Wanstead:
. Mr. Rafiel's bloodhound - his avenging angel. She looks so harmless, doesn't she? But her camouflage is perfect because she is partly just what she seems - a gossipy old village lady, but her logic is ruthless and her powers of synthesis formidable. And above all she never lets go.

[Birack teaches a class on quantum physics]



Professor Edward Birack:
Let's talk about our beliefs, and what we can learn about them. We believe nature is solid, and time a constant. Matter has substance and time a direction. There is truth in flesh and the solid ground. The wind may be invisible, but it's real. Smoke, fire, water, light - they're different! Not as to stone or steel, but they're tangible. And we assume time is narrow because it is as a clock - one second is one second for everyone! Cause precedes effect - fruit rots, water flows downstream. We're born, we age, we die. The reverse NEVER happens... None of this is true! Say goodbye to classical reality, because our logic collapses on the subatomic level... into ghosts and shadows.

Hey, you there, ah excuse me? Hello? I am talking to you! Yes, you! Are you very mechanical? Well, I was just wondering if you could tell me where this goes? See I wasn't really online when they were programming us for logic repair, usually I can figure it out but these old ACK 5 are kinda built backwards, you know what I mean? Hmm? No, you... don't... know... what... I... mean... Well, don't worry, this isn't your navigator. I fixed him hours ago, but thanks for trying to helping me out, and you have a nice day. I'll figure this out... eventually.

Sally:
Baron Munchausen isn't real, he's only in stories.



Baron Munchausen:
Go away! I'm trying to die!



Sally:
Why?



Baron Munchausen:
Because I'm tired of the world and the world is evidently tired of me.



Sally:
But why? Why?



Baron Munchausen:
Why, why, why! Because it's all logic and reason now. Science, progress, laws of hydraulics, laws of social dynamics, laws of this, that, and the other. No place for three-legged cyclops in the South Seas. No place for cucumber trees and oceans of wine. No place for me.

George Steinbrenner:
Nice to meet you.



George Costanza:
Well, I wish I could say the same, but I must say, with all due respect, I find it very hard to see the logic behind some of the moves you have made with this fine organization. In the past twenty years, you have caused myself, and the city of New York, a good deal of distress as we have watched you take our beloved Yankees and reduced them to a laughing stock, all for the glorification of your massive ego.

Lucien LaCroix:
Life is a gift. As sweet as a ripped peach, as precious as a guilded jewel. I've never understood the logic of willfully surrendering such a treasure. And what is there to gain? How dark can your existance be when compared to an empty void? Unless of course, you have faith that there is something beyond. What do you see from where you stand? A bright light at the end of the tunnel? Is it a ray of hope? A glimmer of something better? Or will it burn you like the rising sun? Is that sound you're hearing the trumpeting of St. Peter's angels, or the screams of Memnoch's tortured souls? You can't answer that, can you, because you will never know the answer, till the deed is done. And is your faith, really that strong? I understand the need to move on, it is something that happens, and your time has truly come. I also understand that with the beauty of this life there comes pain and despair. No one is immune. But consider what is in your hands. Don't trade a treasure for an empty box.

Every shot you've called, Mr. Artificial Intelligence, has been a loser. To me, love has clogged your transistors. You've got emotion flowing through your logic circuit.



Twister:
Stop the insults. I suppose your plans have shown less emotion by threatening people with guns and blowing up buildings...



Dave:
No, but I'm just a cowboy and I'm supposed to feel emotion when I'm in love. You are a pile of transistors and circuits. You're supposed to calculate and think.



Twister:
I'll give you something to think about! If you don't get me back to the garage, I'll become a pile of scrap metal and my creator and your wife will become history.

Chuck Noland:
We both had done the math. Kelly added it all up and... knew she had to let me go. I added it up, and knew that I had... lost her. 'cos I was never gonna get off that island. I was gonna die there, totally alone. I was gonna get sick, or get injured or something. The only choice I had, the only thing I could control was when, and how, and where it was going to happen. So... I made a rope and I went up to the summit, to hang myself. I had to test it, you know? Of course. You know me. And the weight of the log, snapped the limb of the tree, so I-I - , I couldn't even kill myself the way I wanted to. I had power over *nothing*. And that's when this feeling came over me like a warm blanket. I knew, somehow, that I had to stay alive. Somehow. I had to keep breathing. Even though there was no reason to hope. And all my logic said that I would never see this place again. So that's what I did. I stayed alive. I kept breathing. And one day my logic was proven all wrong because the tide came in, and gave me a sail. And now, here I am. I'm back. In Memphis, talking to you. I have ice in my glass... And I've lost her all over again. I'm so sad that I don't have Kelly. But I'm so grateful that she was with me on that island. And I know what I have to do now. I gotta keep breathing. Because tomorrow the sun will rise. Who knows what the tide could bring?

What man treats the woman he loves like whore? Is it because she's poor, do you think she went with you for your money? Rubbish... Hey I maybe poor and my friends and Kaori maybe poor too, but she has had a much richer life then you have had. You say love will only get you hurt. Kaori's been in love, been hurt... But she's still cheerful! I'll tell you something, being poor is just a state of mind, but if you respect the three wells of my logic - Trust, friendship and love - then I truly am a rich person.

Konosuke Shimodaira:
I don't need money, and Kaori doesn't need your money. She's a very rich woman, she loves you, she's your friend and until now she trusted you. You don't deserve your love. *You* sir, are the *poor* man. *I* am the rich one!

Too tall. Even the primitive forensics of the mid-20th century would have determined that.
