But sure there is need of other remedies than dreaming, a weak contention of art against nature.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Joan K.: It's been said that iguanas carry salmonella. Yeah, really. Now, it's my contention that Xander does not have it because I've been scratched, and you get it sort of like chickens do if you're not clean, you know, if you're handling their feces - which I do! All the time, you know!More [10/18/2005 12:10:00]

Host: Tomorrow marks the one-year anniversary since Velez Air Flight 180 exploded and crashed shortly after takeoff from JFK airport. It's a disaster that's affected many. None more so than Mt. Abraham High School, which lost 40 students and 4 faculty members in the crash. But it was the events after the crash that has turned this tragic story into something even stranger. The survivors that managed to get off the plane before it crashed died soon thereafter in a series of mysterious and bizarre accidents. Now to some, these deaths are just tragic coincidences, but to others, they're an indication that there are more sinister events taking place. That's the contention of tonight's guest. Thank you for joining us this evening.More [06/25/2007 12:06:00]
If only we hadn't missed that train at Budapest.

Well, I don't want to rub it in, but if you hadn't insisted on standing up until they'd finished their national anthem...

Yes, but you must show respect, Caldicott. If I'd known it was going to last twenty minutes...

It has always been my contention that the Hungarian Rhapsody is *not* their national anthem.

Bisbee Marshal:
Now the way I figure it, the faster we get him out of here, the safer.

Alex Potter, town drunk:
That's right! We'll outsmart 'em every step! We'll outsmart 'em!

Bisbee Marshal:
We only got two, three hours head start. They'll probably figure we're going to take him to For Huachuca and turn him in there.

Alex Potter, town drunk:
Sure they will!

Bisbee Marshal:
And if they don't figure that, they'll figure we've taken him to Benson.

Alex Potter, town drunk:
That's a fact!

Bisbee Marshal:
And if they don't figure that, then they'll figure we've taken him to Contention City and put him on the 3:10 to Yuma.

Ben Wade:
Is the marshal around?

He's in his office.

Ben Wade:
Well, you tell him that the coach from Contention was help up. We passed it on the way in. They don't have any horses. Didn't you hear what I said?

Yeah, I heard.

Ben Wade:
Well, why don't you tell him.

Well, the marshal takes his nap between one and two.

It is my contention that most people are not mugged every day, that most people in this world do not encounter violence every day. I think we prepare people for violence, and I think just as importantly we prepare people for the definition of being gentleMore [08/02/2011 11:08:04]
We had a smart, six-year athlete developmental program in place, we worked it, and this week we were in contention for medals at three of the five qualified weight classes. We made history here in London and we are proud of our plan and of how far we have come. This is just the beginning.More [08/12/2012 06:08:35]
Rory is a very confident guy and really believes in himself. His attitude seems to be more relaxed than I've ever seen with him. He's that talented, and if he gets it all figured out, he's going to be in contention and winning tournaments.More [01/23/2013 05:01:21]
I don't think nationalism is alone holding the field it's in contention with a lot of different things.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

Woe is me, my mother, that thou hast borne me a man of strife and
a man of contention to the whole earth! I have neither lent on
usury, nor men have lent to me on usury; yet every one of them
doth curse me.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
'Tis a hydra's head contention; the more they strive the more they
may: and as Praxiteles did by his glass, when he saw a scurvy
face in it, brake it in pieces; but for that one he saw many more
as bad in a moment.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Whoever keeps an open ear
For tattlers will be sure to hear
The trumpet of contention.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Feast of Barnabas the Apostle A united confession of the Name, a united worship of the Father, the Son, and the Spirit -- such a Confession, such a Worship, as the past contains only a dim shadow of -- we have a right to look for. It may come when we least expect it; it will probably come after a period of darkness, fierce contention, utter disbelief. But the confession will only be united when we cease to confound our feeble expressions of trust and affiance, our praises and adorations, with Him to whom they rise,More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Commemoration of Samuel Seabury, First Anglican Bishop in North America, 1796 [Dr. Johnson to a Quaker:] Oh, let us not be found, when our Master calls us, ripping the lace off our waistcoats, but the spirit of contention from our souls and tongues.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Commemoration of Giles of Provence, Hermit, c.710 It was not by dialectic that it pleased God to save His people; "for the kingdom of God consisteth in simplicity of faith, not in wordy contention.".More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The Swallow and the Crow
The Swallow and the Crow had a contention about their plumage. The Crow put an end to the dispute by saying, Your feathers are all very well in the spring, but mine protect me against the winter.
Fair weather friends are not worth much.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
[Detroit Deputy Mayor Anthony Adams largely concurs.] I think they actually have a pretty good relationship, ... I think as with any strong leaders, you're going to have points of contention where they are going to express their strengths. That doesn't mean they don't respect one another.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
As a team they know that they can finish high and be in contention in tournaments. It means that much more to them out there on the course. We're not there yet. We need to continue to improve.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I hope it will give us several shots a day. We've never had the whole team play well. We've had one (golfer) play well, but when you have three of your five players in the top 10 then usually you're in contention for the title.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is my contention that civil disobediences are nothing but the latest form of voluntary association, and that they are thus quite in tune with the oldest traditions of the country.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have a great group of kids. This hurts us for conference contention, but we can still go out there and work for other achievements.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Nobody wants to see teams out of contention showcased in December and January. I'm sure this is something that will be discussed again this off-season.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It was a great day for me. You just go out and hope you can have a good round and hopefully get into contention. Then you post a [low] score and the guys become a little hotter.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But I don't think you can (think about that). You have to stay in the present, so hopefully I can do that tomorrow. I've been playing well the last two months and put myself in contention to win, but I just haven't gotten it done yet.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
United is playing with fire. If this becomes a major bone of contention, then the present United disclosure statement may never be approved.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It seems the Chinese would like to proceed and get back to business as usual with the United States in the wake of all the difficulties the relationship had in the past months. And human rights, of course, is a traditional bone of contention.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
This is happening all over the world. It's not just this golf course. Hopefully, if it stays dry, it will let a few more people in (contention). If it gets wet, though, there's only a few people where it's attainable.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The University of California system has a significant history of bringing great jobs and opportunities to their respective regions. At one point Tulare County was in contention for the UC. We feel that it is good for Merced and the Valley, but we want one of our own.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Thompson was regarded as one of the best receivers in the AIFL. He would have been in contention for the league's MVP last season if not for an injury that forced him to sit out the last 5 games.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I got off to a perfect start. I birdied the first three holes. It's just great when you're defending and start well and be in contention again.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In my case what happened next in 1999 was that I fell apart over that back nine. When I saw I was in genuine contention that year I felt like throwing up. That remains probably the most nervous I've ever been on a golf course.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't think nationalism is alone holding the field; it's in contention with a lot of different things.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The free-trade idea, logically applied, will abolish usury; and with usury will disappear the chief bone of contention between labor and capital. But, just at this point, free-traders go over to the enemy; and many writers on political economy, in flat contradiction of the essential principles of that science, have made elaborate arguments to prove self-government in finance, impossible! What shall we think of men who, having dethroned kings, demolished popes, destroyed slave oligarchies and assailed tariff monopoly, aMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Even as we seek to be meek and to avoid contention, we must not compromise or dilute our commitment to the truths we understand. We must not surrender our positions or our values. The gospel of Jesus Christ and the covenants we have made inevitably cast us as combatants in the eternal contest between truth and error. there is no middle ground in that contest.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In real life, it is the hare who wins. Every time. Look around you. And in any case it is my contention that Aesop was writing for the tortoise market. Hares have no time to read. They are too busy winning the game.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In order to avoid contention, never contradict anyone, except in case of sin or some danger to a neighbor; and when necessary to contradict others, and to oppose your opinion to theirs, do it with so much mildness and tact, as not to appear to do violence to their mind, for nothing is ever gained by taking up things with excessive warmth and hastiness.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I never lost my faith...But like all modern Catholics, I felt for a time that I had outgrown the church. Now it is a bone of contention in my soul that I did not share my faith with my kids, as my parents did with me. It was a source of grace when I needed it. I have been greatly nurtured and inspired by my faith.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There are no contests in the Art of Peace. A true warrior is invincible because he or she contests with nothing. Defeat means to defeat the mind of contention that we harbor within.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If you say to someone who has ears to hear: "What you are doing to me is not just," you may touch and awaken at its source the spirit of attention and love. But it is not the same with words like, "I have the right..." or "you have no right to..." They evoke a latent war and awaken the spirit of contention.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Meteorology has ever been an apple of contention, as if the violent commotions of the atmosphere induced a sympathetic effect on the minds of those who have attempted to study them.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

When you see contention amongst your enemies, go and sit at ease with your friends; but when you see them of one mind, string your bow, and place stones upon the ramparts.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is my contention that an agent ideal to the use of the scientific militarist, for both the air raid and the long distance bombardment is now in the process of development; that its eventual perfection is but a matter of time; and its use in warfare is certain to occur. I refer to the rocket. The perfection of the rocket in my opinion will give to future warfare the horror unknown in previous conflicts and will make possible destruction of nations, in a cool, passionless and scientific fashion.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
They set great store by their gardens . . . Their studie and deligence herein commeth not only of pleasure, but also of a certain strife and contention . . . concerning the trimming, husbanding, and furnishing of their gardens; everye man or his owne parte.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I've had a lot of majors where I didn't play well until the last round. Keep yourself in contention; that's the name of the game. I usually ended up shooting a good round and all of a sudden, somehow, I won.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What happens is all these things we're seeing – campylobacter, E coli, mad cow, listeria, salmonella, that weren't even in the lexicon 30 years ago – that is the industrial paradigm exceeding its efficiency. So these Latin squiggly words that we're learning to say – bovine spongiform encephalopathy – are nature's language screaming to us: ENOUGH! And the question then is: what will it take for us to listen? And my contention is that Wall Street is still wearing conquistador mentality and uniforms, and nobody isMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My contention is, first, that we should want more from our educational efforts than adequate academic achievement and, second, that we will not achieve even that meager success unless our children believe that they themselves are cared for and learn to care for others.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Propriety and single interest divides the people of a land and the whole world into parties and is the cause of all wars and bloodshed and contention everywhereMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Give heed to the cause of the holy Roman Church, mother of all churches and teacher of the faith, whom you by the order of God, have consecrated by your blood. Against the Roman Church, you warned, lying teachers are rising, introducing ruinous sects, and drawing upon themselves speedy doom. Their tongues are fire, a restless evil, full of deadly poison. They have bitter zeal, contention in their hearts, and boast and lie against the truth.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Obstinacy and contention are common qualities, most appearing in, and best becoming, a mean and illiterate soul.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My final coaching point of the day: It's my contention that in any given moment one lives one's life in one of two ways, either under a threat or for a challenge. In performing when it counts, it's one or the other, under a threat or for a challenge. If, as Einstein says, "Imagination will take you everywhere," then living your life under a threat will take you nowhere.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

It is possible to rise to the lofty standard set by the Lord for priesthood holders in making decisions in quorums. It is possible when there is great faith and love and the absence of contention.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The death of God represents not only the realization that gods have never existed, but the contention that such a belief is no longer even irrationally possible: that neither reason nor the taste and temper of the times condones it. The belief lingers on, of course, but it does so like astrology or a faith in a flat earth.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Well, you can certainly teach free-throwing. And you can teach the boys to pass at angles and run in curves. - University of Kansas Jayhawks head coach Phog Allen, reposting the contention of his Kansas predecessor and inventor of basketball James Naismith, pictured, that basketball could not be coached
When I dunk, I put something on it. I want the ball to hit the floor before I do.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
