The ultimate determinant in the struggle now going on for the world will not be bombs and rockets but a test of wills and ideas-a trial of spiritual resolve: the values we hold, the beliefs we cherish and the ideals to which we are dedicated.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our ideals are our better selves.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If we fight a war and win it with H-bombs, what history will remember is not the ideals we were fighting for but the methods we used to accomplish them. These methods will be compared to the warfare of Genghis Khan who ruthlessly killed every last inhabitant of Persia.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The professors laugh at themselves, they laugh at life; they long ago abjured the bitch-goddess Success, and the best of them will fight for his scholastic ideals with a courage and persistence that would shame a soldier. The professor is not afraid of words like truth; in fact he is not afraid of words at all.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You can tell the ideals of a nation by its advertisements.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The ideals which have always shone before me and filled me with the joy of living are goodness, beauty, and truth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Cutting the space budget really restores my faith in humanity. It eliminates dreams, goals, and ideals and lets us get straight to the business of hate, debauchery, and self-annihilation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As to the family, I have never understood how that fits in with the other ideals --or, indeed, why it should be an ideal at all. A group of closely related persons living under one roof; it is a convenience, often a necessity, sometimes a pleasure, sometimes the reverse; but who first exalted it as admirable, an almost religious ideal?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
War is pillage versus resistance and if illusions of magnitude could be transmuted into ideals of magnanimity, peace might be realized.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Failure comes only when we forget our ideals and objectives and principles.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To have striven, to have made the effort, to have been true to certain ideals -- this alone is worth the struggle.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is something to be said for government by a great aristocracy which has furnished leaders to the nation in peace and war for generations; even a democrat like myself must admit this. But there is absolutely nothing to be said for government by a plutocracy, for government by men very powerful in certain lines and gifted with the money touch, but with ideals which in their essence are merely those of so many glorified pawnbrokers.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Some men can live up to their loftiest ideals without ever going higher than a basement.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Institutional psychiatry is a continuation of the Inquisition. All that has really changed is the vocabulary and the social style. The vocabulary conforms to the intellectual expectations of our age: it is a pseudo-medical jargon that parodies the concepts of science. The social style conforms to the political expectations of our age: it is a pseudo-liberal social movement that parodies the ideals of freedom and rationality.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Some have half-baked ideas because their ideals are not heated up enough.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no question what the roll of honor in America is. The roll of honor consists of the names of men who have squared their conduct by ideals of duty.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
[Other than those details, the proud mixed-ethnicity actress added that the game will concentrate on several ideals of great importance to her: racial tolerance, nonviolence, and geographical awareness.] I'm going to pick seven cities in the world, because I travel so much and I think there's so many cool, creative people in the world; I want tap into that, and I want to make it racially diverse, ... It's nonviolent; there's no killing.More [03/23/2006 12:03:00]
I think it's really terrifying that a country based on the foundations and ideals of God, is now systematically removing God from everything. Everything!More [06/16/2006 12:06:00]
Man is mortal. Everyone has to die some day or the other. But one must resolve to lay down one’s life in enriching the noble ideals of self-respect and in bettering one’s human life. We are not slaves. Nothing is more disgraceful for a brave man than to live life devoid of self-respect.More [07/04/2007 12:07:00]
Henry: Where are your attendants?
Danielle: I... decided to give them the day off.
Henry: [incredulously] A day off? From what, life?
Danielle: Don't you ever tire of having people wait on you all the time?
Henry: Well, yes, but... they're servants, it's what they do.
Danielle: [coldly] Well I wish I could dismiss mine as easily as you do yours.
[she rises]
Danielle: I must be going.
Henry: [following her] You're angry with me!
Danielle: No.
Henry: Admit it!
Danielle: Well yes, if you want to know.
Henry: Why?
Danielle: Because you are trying to bait me with your snobbery.
Henry: I fear, mademoiselle, that you are a walking contradiction, and I find that rather fascinating.
Danielle: Me?
Henry: Yes, you. You spout the ideals of a Utopian society and yet you live the life of a courtier!
Danielle: And *you* own all the land there is and yet you take no pride in working it! Is that not also a contradiction?
Henry: Hm, first I am arrogant, and now I have no pride; however do I manage that?
Danielle: You have *everything*, and still the world holds no joy; and yet you insist on making fun of those who *would* see it for its possibilities.More [10/18/2007 12:10:00]
I regard the principle of conscription of life as a flat contradiction of all our cherished ideals of individual freedom, democratic liberty and Christian teaching.More [12/27/2007 12:12:00]
The idealists dream and the dream is told, and the practical men listen and ponder and bring back the truth and apply it to human life, and progress and growth and higher human ideals come into being and so the world moves ever on.More [03/23/2008 12:03:00]
Judas: You sad pathetic man! See where you've brought us to? Our ideals die around us, and all because of you!More [05/05/2008 12:05:00]
There is also work to do in the evolution of a stable family life and values, and in ensuring that the Nigerian family is built on core values that will form the bedrock of the future society. We must showcase the ideals of family life and be models of family values.More [09/22/2008 12:09:00]
Nancy Adams:
You've changed. You're so different. Is this what the war has done to you?

2nd Lt. Rex 'Rocky' Thorne:
Wasn't this what you wanted?

Nancy Adams:
I didn't know. I spoke of the glory of war. I know now. The mud, the filth, the suffering, the agony, the poor, helpless, dying boys.

2nd Lt. Rex 'Rocky' Thorne:
It isn't muddy up where I am. When death comes, it comes swiftly and cleanly. Ah, it's a grand war. I only hope the next one is half as good. I used to think I could take clay and mold it into the semblance of a living thing. The closer it came to being alive, the greater my glory. The power of life is more than that, Nancy. Life--life for myself as I control my plane. And then death, swift and final in the squeeze of my fingers.


2nd Lt. Rex 'Rocky' Thorne:
You can't do that with clay, Nancy.

Nancy Adams:
Then all that you said about saving yourself for something better--

2nd Lt. Rex 'Rocky' Thorne:
Did I say that? Forget it. Why, this is a great war, and I'm having a grand time. It's all grand, every minute of it. Thirty-three planes shot down. Decorated by a French general. My picture in the papers. The idol of the allies, the hero, the great war ace. Pursued by women. Boy, I wouldn't have missed this for anything. You did me a great favor that day in the studio.


2nd Lt. Rex 'Rocky' Thorne:
Me and my ideals for humanity. Ha! Why, I might still be back there slaving, trying to express myself on some remote conception of art.

Nancy Adams:
Please, Rocky!

2nd Lt. Rex 'Rocky' Thorne:
Come on, Nancy. Don't try to make me feel sorry for myself, because there's nothing to feel sorry for.

James W. 'Jim' Wade:
And I'm not sure, maybe ideals have ceased to exist. Maybe they're outmoded like um

Oh I don't mind you being older than what I thought. But all the rest of it. That pitch about your ideals being so old-fashioned and all the malarkey that you've been dishin' out all summer. Oh, I knew you weren't sixteen anymore. But I was fool enough to believe you was straight."

Your principles, your ideals? What work are your principles of? What work are your ideals of? All your principles mashed up together couldn't make up one time of bread Ravi ! The ideals for which you are ready to play from your life, what has they given you? One rented quarter, a rundown police car, two pairs of brown uniform. Watch, watch today this is all me, today this is all you, we both have stood up together from this pathway, but today where have you remained and where have I arrived. Today I have a bungalow, car, bank balance. What do you have?

I have mother.

Charles Brubaker:
This is really wonderful. If we go along with you and lie our asses off, the world of truth and ideals is, er, protected. But if we don't want to take part in some giant rip-off of yours then somehow or other we're managing to ruin the country. You're pretty good, Jim. I'll give you that.

More [06/16/2016 01:06:42]
You see, the way I see it is this: You got two separate fights. The one for truth and justice and the American way of life and all that. That's gotta take a backseat to the one for staying alive. You gotta stay alive! Man, you can have the most beautiful ideals in the whole world, but if you die, your ideals are gonna die with you! The important thing is we gotta stay together, we gotta keep the troupe together. And if keeping the troupe going means that we have to take some of this promoter's money, then I say let's take it and get some sleep!

[waking a disoriented Bagman, who was asleep by the campfire] There's not two different fights, there can't be two different fights. You got to fight for your ideals, and if you die, your ideals don't die. The code that we're living by is the truth. The truth IS the code! I can't let people walk on that idea, I can't!

[He rises, heads to the motorcycles]

[waking as Billy starts his motorcycle] What the hell's going on?

Det. Samuel 'George' Francisco:
You humans are very curious to us. You invite us to live among you in an atmosphere of equality that we've never known before. You give us ownership of our own lives for the first time and you ask no more of us than you do of yourselves. I hope you understand how special your world is, how unique a people you humans are. Which is why it is all the more painful and confusing to us that so few of you seem capable of living up to the ideals you set for yourselves.

Dan Cain:

Dr. Herbert West:

Dan Cain:
I'm moving out.

Dr. Herbert West:
Dan, you can't turn your back on this, this is the key to creating life. Parts... re-animated parts!

Dan Cain:
We're trying to save whole people, not parts.

Dr. Herbert West:
Exactly! And what are people over and above a collection of living parts? We can create new life!

Dan Cain:
This morbid doodling with human body parts... is this what it's all about? Is this what all our great work has led to?

Dr. Herbert West:
Exactly what are you insinuating?

Dan Cain:
This is madness... it had nothing to do with me!

Dr. Herbert West:
Oh, I see!

Dan Cain:

Dr. Herbert West:
Oh, I didn't see. I didn't see you rejecting my work when Meg was lying there dead. Where were your great ideals then?

Dan Cain:

Connie Stone:
Dammit, Phil, everybody's gotta compromise!

Phil Lovecraft:
That's what I keep hearing.

Connie Stone:
And what makes you so special?

Phil Lovecraft:
What makes me special is I'm my own man. When I started out I said there were things I'd do and things I wouldn't do. A lot of guys start out like that, and a lot of them sell out along the way. But the more who fall, the easier it gets. "See, look, everybody compromises, everybody cheats, everybody uses magic." So they empty their ideals out of their pockets and get down to the job of sticking it to their neighbors before they stick it to them, because that's that way it's done. To all of which I say nuts. My collar may be a little frayed, and maybe I need a shoeshine. But nobody's got a mortgage on my soul. I own it. Free and clear.

[Speaking about their leader, J'onn J'onzz] He's from another world. He has knowledge that surpasses our ideals of humanity.

Barry Allen:
I mean, also though, he's very wise about fathering us and choosing, and human instincts and stuff. I get alot from him.

Haven't you felt like you appreciate more of the things that we have for us here in this, in our world?

The Fight: What does it mean and where does it come from? An Essay: Homosapien. A man. He is alone in the universe. A punker. Still a man. He is alone in the universe, but he connects. How? They hit each other. No clearer way to evaluate whether or not you're alive. Now. Complications. A reason to fight. Somebody different. Difference creates dispute. Dispute is a reason to fight. Now, to fight is a reason to feel pain. Life is pain. So to fight with reason is to be alive with reason. Final analysis: To fight, a reason to live. Problems and Contradictions: I am an anarchist. I believe that there should be no rules, only chaos. Fighting appears to be chaos. And when we slam in the pit a show it is. But when we fight for a reason, like rednecks, there's a system, we fight for what we stand for, chaos. Fighting is a structure, fighting is to establish power, power is government and government is not anarchy. Government is war and war is fighting. The circle goes like this: our redneck skirmishes are cheap perversions of conventional warfare. War implies extreme government because wars are fought to enforce rules or ideals, even freedom. But other people ideals forced on someone else, even if it is something like freedom, is still a rule; not anarchy. This contradiction was becoming clear to me in the fall of '85. Even as early as my first party, "Why did I love to fight?" I framed it, but still, I don't understand it. It goes against my beliefs as a true anarchist. But there it was. Competition, fighting, capitalism, government, THE SYSTEM. That's what we did. It's what we always did. Rednecks kicked the shit out of punks, punks kicked the shit out of mods, mods kicked the shit out of skinheads, skinheads took out the heavy metal guys, and the heavy metal guys beat the living shit out of new wavers and the new wavers did nothing. What was the point? Final summation? None.

The Duke:
I don't like this ending...

Don't like the ending, my dear Duke?

The Duke:
Why should the courtesan chose the penniless sitar player over the maharajah who is offering her a lifetime of security? That's real love. Once the sitar player has satisfied his lust he will leave her with nothing. I suggest that the courtesan chose the maharajah.

But, but tell me, that ending does not uphold the Bohemian ideals of truth, beauty, freedom, and...

The Duke:
[shouts] I don't care about your ridiculous dogma! Why shouldn't the courtesan chose the maharajah?

[shouts] Because she doesn't love you!... Him... Hi-him, she doesn't love... she doesn't love him.

The Duke:
Oh, I see... Monsieur Zidler, the play will be rewritten with the courtesan choosing the maharajah and without the lovers' secret song. It will be rehearsed in the morning, ready for the opening tomorrow night...

But, my dear Duke, that will be quite impossible.

Harold, the Duke is being treated appallingly. These silly writers let their imaginations run away with themselves. Why don't you and I have a little supper, and then we can tell Monsieur Zidler how we would like the story to end.
