series

We have as many planes of speech as does a painting planes of perspective which create perspective in a phrase. The most important word stands out most vividly defined in the very foreground of the sound plane. Less important words create a series of deeper planes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As far as many statistical series that are related to activities of mankind are concerned, the date that divides human history into two equal parts is well within living memory. The world of today is as different from the world I was born in as that world was from Julius Caesar s. I was born in the middle of human history, to date, roughly. Almost as much has happened since I was born as happened before.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every day the fat woman dies a series of small deaths.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
At no previous period has mankind been faced by a half-century which so paradoxically united violence and progress. Its greater and lesser wars and long series of major assassinations have been strangely combined with the liberation of more societies and individuals than ever before in history, and by the transformation of millions of second-class citizens -- women, workers and the members of subject races -- to a stage at which first-rate achievement is no longer inhibited even if opportunities are not yet complete.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Part of my job is to train people to break down an involved question into a series of simple matters. Then we can all act intelligentlyMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A sophistical rhetorician, inebriated with the exuberance of his own verbosity, and gifted with an egotistical imagination that can at all times command an interminable and inconsistent series of arguments to malign an opponent and to glorify himself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
First you write down your goal; your second job is to break down your goal into a series of steps, beginning with steps which are absurdly easy.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Life is a series of diminishments. Each cessation of an activity either from choice or some other variety of infirmity is a death, a putting to final rest. Each loss, of friend or precious enemy, can be equated with the closing off of a room containing blocks of nerves and soon after the closing off the nerves atrophy and that part of oneself, in essence, drops away. The self is lightened, is held on earth by a gram less of mass and will.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Life is a series of little deaths out of which life always returns.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as unsolvable problems.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Life is a series of collisions with the future; it is not the sum of what we have been, but what we yearn to be.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Learning to read has been reduced to a process of mastering a series of narrow, specific, hierarchical skills. Where armed-forces recruits learn the components of a rifle or the intricacies of close order drill by the numbers, recruits to reading learn its mechanics sound by sound and word by word.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
People who have realized that this is a dream imagine that it is easy to wake up, and are angry with those who continue sleeping, not considering that the whole world that environs them does not permit them to wake. Life proceeds as a series of optical illusions, artificial needs and imaginary sensations.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every man who has lived for fifty years has buried a whole world or even two; he has grown used to its disappearance and accustomed to the new scenery of another act: but suddenly the names and faces of a time long dead appear more and more often on his way, calling up series of shades and pictures kept somewhere, just in case, in the endless catacombs of the memory, making him smile or sigh, and sometimes almost weep.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Washington is an endless series of mock palaces clearly built for clerks.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every Age has its own peculiar faith. Any attempt to translate into facts the mission of one Age with the machinery of another, can only end in an indefinite series of abortive efforts. Defeated by the utter want of proportion between the means and the end, such attempts might produce martyrs, but never lead to victory.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our humility rest upon a series of learned behaviors, woven together into patterns that are infinitely fragile and never directly inherited.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every man sees in his relatives, and especially in his cousins, a series of grotesque caricatures of himself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The professional celebrity, male and female, is the crowning result of the star system of a society that makes a fetish of competition. In America, this system is carried to the point where a man who can knock a small white ball into a series of holes in the ground with more efficiency than anyone else thereby gains social access to the President of the United States.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Autobiography is only to be trusted when it reveals something disgraceful. A man who gives a good account of himself is probably lying, since any life when viewed from the inside is simply a series of defeats.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Life is a series of steps. Things are done gradually. Once in a while there is a giant step, but most of the time we are taking small, seemingly insignificant steps on the stairway of life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A linguistic system is a series of differences of sound combined with a series of differences of ideas.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The person determined to achieve maximum success learns the principle that progress is made one step at a time. A house is built one brick at a time. Football games are won a play at a time. A department store grows bigger one customer at a time. Every big accomplishment is a series of little accomplishments.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There are three possible parts to a date, of which at least two must be offered: entertainment, food, and affection. It is customary to begin a series of dates with a great deal of entertainment, a moderate amount of food, and the merest suggestion of affection. As the amount of affection increases, the entertainment can be reduced proportionately. When the affection IS the entertainment, we no longer call it dating. Under no circumstances can the food be omitted.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A marriage is a series of friendships. Love serves as its underlying theme. Friendships provide it with the new challenges around which the relationship further develops. Each type of friendship with ones partner comes into being, rises to a peak of enthusiasm, and then wanes away in our cedar chest of sentimental values. Every once in a while we go to the chest and draw out a friendship item to give us a shot in the arm. Then we put it away till another day.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A work is never completed except by some accident such as weariness, satisfaction, the need to deliver, or death: for, in relation to who or what is making it, it can only be one stage in a series of inner transformations.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Albus Dumbledore: This year Hogwarts will play host to a legendary event - the Triwizard Tournament. During which time a single student gets to represent his or her school in a series of magical contests. Eternal glory awaits the student who wins the tournament.More [07/26/2005 12:07:00]
Noel: They can also tell when a man is Yalloglanchie. He takes on a series of strange body habits, like sleeping like a coyote, nose to anus. The house begins to smell like coyote urine.More [12/27/2005 12:12:00]
Capt. James West: [Whistles] I'd like to have everyone's attention for a moment. It seems we have had series of major misunderstandings here tonight. First of all, the whole "drummin' on the boobies" thing. Now in my native land...
Someone in crowd: Georgia?
Capt. James West: Africa. We use drums to communicate between villages. And as you can see by this gal, we could communicate all the way to Baton Rouge. Hell, on a clear night, we might even get Galveston. All I was saying to the gal was, "Hi, how ya doing? My name's Jim. How's your momma?" Then there was the whole "Redneck" comment. And I'm sensing that you took that negatively. But let's break down that word "Redneck". First word red, color of power, fire, passion. Second word neck... neck... hey I can't think of nothing for neck right now, but without that you still got red and that's something to be proud of.More [02/19/2006 12:02:00]
I am very excited that my music and career will be showcased on XM. Through the years I have always tried to find new ways to present my music and my story to my fans. I'm excited to explore this long-form interview concept and bring something unique and different to the table with this six-part series on XM. It's nice to look back, even [for me], at the whole thing. It's a great reflection.More [03/20/2006 12:03:00]
We've had a long ride back from a cancellation of a short-lived television series to the release of a major motion picture. I don't know if there's any other story equivalent to that in Hollywood historyMore [04/05/2006 12:04:00]
If the director wishes to print it, then you have a series of choices, maybe millions of choices within that minute-and-a-half, or 80 seconds, or 2 minutes or however long or short the take is, you have all those choices committed to celluloid. I find that absolutely thrilling.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]

The whole series is about the loss of innocence, ... In the first one ['The Sorcerer's Stone'], everyone's very wide-eyed, almost naïve. Harry's thinking that because he's entering a magical world, it's got to be better than the world he's come from. But it's not — it's just got further extremes. It can have extreme joy, but there are also the depths that man can sink to.More [04/25/2006 12:04:00]
[An attorney for Ladner said yesterday that he could not comment on the statement.] I haven't seen it. Someone on the board has obviously leaked it to the press but withheld it from Dr. Ladner, so he cannot respond, ...

I didn't leave, I mean I did the TV series for three years, and when that was done I walked, and then there was a period of time where I was making my own movies and financing them myself, and I needed money, I had to work, you know, and I started doing little movies cause they were there.More [11/01/2006 12:11:00]
