The greatest gift you and your partner can give your children is the example of an intimate, healthy, and loving relationship.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In it he proves that all things are true and states how the truths of all contradictions may be reconciled physically, such as for example that white is black and black is white; that one can be and not be at the same time; that there can be hills without valleys; that nothingness is something and that everything, which is, is not. But take note that he proves all these unheard-of paradoxes without any fallacious or sophistical reasoning.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
People never improve unless they look to some standard or example higher or better than themselves.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The elephant, not only the largest but the most intelligent of animals, provides us with an excellent example. It is faithful and tenderly loving to the female of its choice, mating only every third year and then for no more than five days, and so secretly as never to be seen, until, on the sixth day, it appears and goes at once to wash its whole body in the river, unwilling to return to the herd until thus purified. Such good and modest habits are an example to husband and wife.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You have to set the tone and the pace, define objectives and strategies, demonstrate through personal example what you expect from others.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To see ourselves as others see us can be eye-opening. To see others as sharing a nature with ourselves is the merest decency. But it is from the far more difficult achievement of seeing ourselves amongst others, as a local example of the forms human life has locally taken, a case among cases, a world among worlds, that the largeness of mind, without which objectivity is self-congratulation and tolerance a sham, comes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Friendship Never explain -- your friends do not need it, and your enemies will not believe it anyway. A real friend never gets in your way, unless you happen to be on the way down. A friend is someone you can do nothing with and enjoy it. However much we guard ourselves against it, we tend to shape ourselves in the image others have of us. It is not so much the example of others we imitate, as the reflection of ourselves in their eyes and the echo of ourselves in their words.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The proverbial German phenomenon of the verb-at-the-end about which droll tales of absentminded professors who would begin a sentence, ramble on for an entire lecture, and then finish up by rattling off a string of verbs by which their audience, for whom the stack had long since lost its coherence, would be totally nonplussed, are told, is an excellent example of linguistic recursion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another, but let him work diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A good example is far better than a good precept.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our intellect is not the most subtle, the most powerful, the most appropriate, instrument for revealing the truth. It is life that, little by little, example by example, permits us to see that what is most important to our heart, or to our mind, is learned not by reasoning but through other agencies. Then it is that the intellect, observing their superiority, abdicates its control to them upon reasoned grounds and agrees to become their collaborator and lackey.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Precept guides, but example draws.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is a mistake to suppose that men succeed through success; they much oftener succeed through failures. Precept, study, advice, and example could never have taught them so well as failure has done.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nothing is so great an example of bad manners as flattery. If you flatter all the company, you please none; If you flatter only one or two, you offend the rest.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A good example is the best sermon.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Benevolence It is the glory of the true religion that it inculcates and inspires a spirit of benevolence. It is a religion of charity, which none other ever was. Christ went about doing good; he set the example to his disciples, and they abounded in itMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Alfred Pennyworth: Are you coming back to Gotham for long, sir?
Bruce Wayne: As long as it takes. I'm gonna show the people of Gotham that their city doesn't belong to the criminals and the corrupt.
Alfred Pennyworth: In the depression, your father nearly bankrupted Wayne Enterprises combating poverty. He believed his example could inspire the wealthy of Gotham to save their city.
Bruce Wayne: Did it?
Alfred Pennyworth: In a way. Their murders shocked the wealthy and the powerful into action.
Bruce Wayne: People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy and I can't do that as Bruce Wayne, as a man I'm flesh and blood I can be ignored I can be destroyed but as a symbol, as a symbol I can be incorruptible, I can be everlasting.
Alfred Pennyworth: What symbol?
Bruce Wayne: Something elemental, something terrifying.
Alfred Pennyworth: I assume that as you're taking on the underworld, this symbol is a persona to protect those you care about from reprisals.
Bruce Wayne: You thinking about Rachel?
Alfred Pennyworth: Actually, sir, I was thinking about myself.More [08/15/2005 12:08:00]
Bigwig: Aren't you going to silflay?
Blackavar: I don't silflay at this time, sir.
Sherbil: Tell him why you're here, Blackavar.
Blackavar: [Mumbles] I've come here for the mark...
[Sherbil swipes at him to make him speak up, and he does]
Blackavar: I... I... I've come here for the mark to see me. I... I've been punished for trying to leave the warren.
[Sherbil glares]
Blackavar: The council were merciful...
[Sherbil threatens him again, and Blackavar cowers]
Blackavar: The council were merciful.
Sherbil: He keeps trying to run away. Captain Campion caught him this time. The council ripped his ears and says he has to show himself every morning early silflay as an example to the others. If you ask me, he won't last much longer. He'll meet a blacker rabbit than himself one of these times.More [12/06/2005 12:12:00]
They're sort of the example for me. I'm really old-fashioned, and I believe in marriage.More [03/20/2006 12:03:00]
If you take 2001: A Space Odyssey as an example of somebody who creates a new language in film by what he was able to accomplish with art direction, photography, lighting, etc., it is still a gold standard for science fiction.More [07/04/2006 12:07:00]
But in my own particular case, there was something that happened when I became a mother. Whenever in the news I saw an example of a child being abused or mistreated, my response went from being appalled to being physically revolted.More [09/25/2006 12:09:00]

Much as I cared for Joseph Kennedy, he was a classic example of that person in the arts with lots of brains and drive but little taste or talent.More [11/04/2006 12:11:00]
“I kind of gave it all I had in the tiebreaker and just basically ran out of gas in the third set, ... Physically, I have to get a lot better and play these three-setters where the points are going to go on and on. Today's match is a great example that it's physical.”More [11/15/2006 12:11:00]
“People are controlled to varying degrees but it will still make people think - for example Chris actually says to Marian: 'I've seen you walk down the street, you are allowed out' - so to all intents and purposes she's free. But Bernie has brain-washed her to believe her only purpose in life is to serve him.”More [02/12/2007 12:02:00]
Ace Rothstein: [Narrating, after Nicky and his brother Dominick get beat death by baseball bats] They had enough of Nicky. They had enough. I mean, how much more were they gonna take? So, they made an example of him and his brother: they buried them while they were still breathing.More [02/24/2007 12:02:00]
Joe Fox: [talking via email, to who he does'nt know is Kathleen Kelly] Have you ever become the worst version of yourself. That a pandora's box of all the hate, spite and condecension has sprung open? Someone upsets you and instead of walking away... you zing them. "Hello it's Mr Nasty". I'm sure you have no idea what i'm talking about...
Kathleen Kelly: [talking via email, to who she does'nt know is Joe Fox] No i know exactly what you mean and i'm completely jealous. When i'm confronted by someone i get tongue tied and my mind goes blank. Then i spend the rest of the night tossing and turning over what i should have said. For example what should i have recently said to
[meaning confrontation with Joe]
Kathleen Kelly: a bottom dweller who recently belittled my existance.
[Stops and thinks]
Kathleen Kelly: Nothing... even now days later i still can't figured it out...
Joe Fox: Would'nt it be great if i could pass all my zingers to you then i could always be nice and you could be nasty whenever you wanted to be. Although i must warn you... when you eventually have the pleasure of saying the thing you want to say at the moment your wanting to say it... remorse eventually follows... do you think we should meet?
Kathleen Kelly: [shocked] Meet?More [04/08/2007 12:04:00]

Who pandered to her every need? / Who turned her into such a brat? / Who are the culprits, who did that? / The guilty ones - now this is sad / Are dear old mum and loving dad.More [07/11/2007 12:07:00]
Banky Edwards: What is it about this girl man, you know you have no shot at getting her into bed so why do you even bother wasting time with her, because you're Holden fucking McNeil, the most persistent traveler on the road that's not the path of least resistance, everything has to be a fucking challenge for you and this little relationship with that BITCH is a prime example of your fucking condition, Well I don't need a magic 8-ball to look into your future, you want a forecast here, will Holden ever fuck Alyssa?, oh what a shock, NOT FUCKING LIKELY. This relationship is affecting you, our work and our friendship and the time is going to come when I throw down the gauntlet and say it's me or her then what are you going to say?
Holden: I think you should let this one go
Banky Edwards: No what would you say, would you trash 20 years of fucking friendship because you got some idiotic notion that this chick will let you sniff her panties, let alone fuck her
Holden: Look fucking asshole, I'm telling you let it go, ok!
Banky Edwards: What the fuck man, what the fuck makes this bitch all that important
Holden: Because I'm fucking in love with her man, OK!More [07/11/2007 12:07:00]
Hunter: Rivetti, what's up?
Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: I'm sorry, Sir. It's just a difference of opinion that got out of hand.
Hunter: What about?
Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: It's really too silly to talk about, Sir. I'd really just forget about...
Hunter: I don't give a damn about what you'd rather forget about. Why were you two fighting?
Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: I said, the Kirby Silver Surfer was the only real Silver Surfer. And that the Moebius Silver Surfer was shit. And Bennefield's a big Moebius fan. And it got of hand. I pushed him. He pushed me. I lost my head, Sir. I'm Sorry.
Hunter: Rivetti, you're a supervisor. You can get a commission like that.
[Snaps finger]
Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: I know, Sir. You're 100 percent right. It will never happen again.
Hunter: It better not happen again. If I see this kind of nonsense again, I'm going to write you up. You understand?
Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: [No answer]
Hunter: Do you understand?
Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: Yes, Sir.
Hunter: You have to set an example even in the face of stupidity. Everybody who reads comic books knows that the Kirby Silver Surfer is the only true Silver Surfer. Now am I right or wrong?
Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: You're right, Sir.
Hunter: Now get out of here.
Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: Yes, Sir.More [07/16/2007 12:07:00]

Stewardess: [Air Force One has been hijacked by a lone terrorist] Tell this to the workers when they ask where their leader went. We, the soldiers of The National Liberation Front of America, in the name of the workers and all the oppressed of this imperialist country, have struck a fatal blow to the fascist police state. What better revolutionary example than to let their president perish in the inhuman dungeon of his own imperialist prison.More [10/16/2007 12:10:00]
Delilah: Don't you just love how Stokely accessorize with different shades of black?
Stokely: Fuck you gutter-slut.
Delilah: I don't know why you keep being such a bad example for your people.
Marybeth: What people?
Delilah: I hope you're not a violent lesbian like she is?
Marybeth: No, I'm not aware of any lesbianism in my lineage.
Delilah: That's too bad Stokely, guess you have to keep looking for Ms Right.
Stokely: Bipolar bitch.More [10/26/2007 12:10:00]
Rollo Lee: Oh, great... terrific! He decides to keep the zoo open, so you kill him! Brilliant! Well done! Thank you so much, especially for shooting him right between the eyes, so that it doesn't look like an accident. Because the people at Octopus will know that he was coming here to close us down, so there's our motive for murdering him. Stunning! Well, Mr. Brain of Britain, what are we going to tell the police, who are, of course, already on their way here? Another example of the thoroughness of your plan! Go on, I'm all ears.
[Bugsy stutters]
Rollo Lee: What do you suggest we do with the dead body of the incredibly famous man, who you have just... ASSASSINATED?
[Bugsy stutters some more]
Rollo Lee: Sorry, I didn't... quite catch it... What? What was that?... Pop him in the blender?

Korben Dallas: Mr. President, Mr. President, any idea when you gonna be getting to the point?
President Lindberg: O.K. There's a ball of fire, it's 1200 miles in diameter headin straight for Earth, and we have no idea how to stop it. THAT's the problem.More [11/07/2007 12:11:00]
Gandhi: We think it is time that you recognized that you are masters in someone else's home.

Anchorwoman: So many fond memories of Maximilian the First on the tenth anniversary of our glorious leader's death.
Anchorman: Many of course doubted that his son and heir, Maximilian II, could live up to the example of his charismatic father. But the man affectionately called Junior has valiantly continued against the pesky rebellion, led by the playwright turned terrorist, John Thorne.
Anchorwoman: Once derided as the playboy Prince more interested in the movie business, the President-for-life announced today that he would not rest until he has rid the country of these criminals whom he called, quote, "Really bad guys". In a gesture of goodwill to the commemorate his father's memory, the President today also commuted the sentences of several men condemned to the gallows today, sending them to the guillotine instead.
Anchorman: Papa would have been proud.More [06/28/2008 12:06:00]
Maida Gillespie: Careers and higher education are leading to the masculinization of women, with enormously dangerous consequences to the home, the children, and our country. When our boys come home from war, what kind of girls will they be coming home to? And now the most disgusting example of this sexual confusion: Mr. Walter Harvey of Harvey bars is presenting us with women's baseball. Right here in Chicago, young girls plucked from their families are gathered at Harvey Field, to see which one of them can be the most masculine. Mr. Harvey, like your candy bars, you're completely... nuts.More [07/13/2008 12:07:00]
Joe Clark: [at lunch, in the cafeteria, Clark has singled out Sams] ... I want all of you to take a good look at this slovenly, sloppy boy - as an example of how NOT to dress. If you look like THIS in the morning, find some other clothes to wear. Self-respect permeates every aspect of your existence. If you don't have respect for yourself, you're not gonna get it from anyone else.More [07/13/2008 12:07:00]

Dear friends, we're going to die down to the last man. But our deaths will stop nothing. Our example will serve the cause. Others will finish what we've begun. Long live the republic! Fire when I five the signal. Then I'll blow up the barricade.

Margaret Allen:
It seems I can't go anywhere or doing anything with Barry making trouble for me. I hate that man! He causes me more sleepless nights.

Richard Barry:
Sleepless nights? What does he do, play his trombone under your window or something?

Margaret Allen:
Everything but that. I lay awake half the night thinking up new ideas, and in the morning I find out Barry's not only beaten me to them, he's topped me in a thousand ways. I wish he'd drown in his own soap suds. But I shouldn't be boring you with my troubles.

Richard Barry:
That's all right. You in this business?

Margaret Allen:
Yes, I'm with the Peck Company. Advertising.

Richard Barry:
I see. I'm sorry you dislike this fellow Barry, though. He's really not a bad sort.

Margaret Allen:
Oh, you know him?

Richard Barry:
Slightly. My barber cuts his hair. Perhaps I could bribe him to cut his throat.

Dan Ward:
Oh, Mr. Barry, do you think she would do?

Richard Barry:
Let me see. Yes, she'll do very nicely.

Dan Ward:
Thank you, Mr. Barry. That's just what I thought.

Margaret Allen:
Well, of all the nerve! Letting me talk my head off without even telling me! Just another example of Barry's cleverness, I suppose!

Dan Ward:
What was she burning about?

Richard Barry:
I keep her awake nights.

Dennis Scott:

Elspeth Honey:
That's the science of the Great Pyramid. My father made it up too, the game I mean, here it is, excuse me. It was built in the year 3,234 B.C., it's very scientific, it was built in direct relationship to the stars, so it has an astronomical significance. It's the only known architectural example of squaring the circle. That is the area of the base is directly equal to that of a circle, but the height of the structure of its radius. It has the most wonderful maximal.

Well, you might as well know. I was lying. I am a thief. It was madness to attempt it. We weren't cut out for crime, either of us.


My partner and I.

Sidewalk Vendor:
Your partner? Here, if you're working with the fence who's got them other pictures...

Shh! Carry on.

Oh I make no excuses. All my life it's been my ambition to surround myself with rare and beautiful things. Suddenly faced with this golden opportunity...

Sidewalk Vendor:
Here, you call that picture of mine rare and beautiful?

Since you will keep on interrupting me, you ought to know it's a charming example of an early Rochet, while he was still under the influence of Corot.

Sidewalk Vendor:

Clint Tollinger:
Just how does he operate?

Marshal Lee Sims:
Well, Dade's a fat man, but don't let that fool ya. Never lifts a pudgy finger himself. You take yesterday for example - just a typical day in Dade's life. He cut himself a piece out of a trail herd that was passing through, then he roughed up the new mine workers over Meadow Creek way, then he tried to grab young Jeff Castle's homesite and then, I bet ya, he divied up the gold dust they took off that poor dead miner over at the Palace. Nothin's too small or mean for Dade Holman. Nothin's too rich or fancy, either.

Jared Tetlow:
I want Dee Havalik freed by that coroner's jury... fair and square.

Grat Barbey:
Well, how fair... and how square?

Jared Tetlow:
Well, I don't mean a packed jury or a bought jury. What I mean is... a jury of towners.

Grat Barbey:
Not no cattlemen on it, nor ranchers?

Jared Tetlow:
That's the idea. The local cowmen have become prejudiced against the Four T and should be kept off the jury in the best interest of justice.

Grat Barbey:
You mean you're going to give them a free rein?

Jared Tetlow:
The Four T brand represents progress... and power. Ordinary people are afraid of power, and these townsmen are just ordinary. I want them scared. Not shot, no guns... but scared. I suggest you give them an example of Four T power just in case their idea of justice is misguided.

Grat Barbey:
Sure boss! The biggest outfit is entitled to the biggest justice.

Colonel Nicholson:
It is quite understandable; it's a very natural reaction. But one day - in a week, a month, a year - on that day when, God willing, we all return to our homes again, you're going to feel very proud of what you have achieved here in the face of great adversity. What you have done should be, and I think will be, an example to all our countrymen, soldier and civilian alike. You have survived with honor - that, and more - here in the wilderness. You have turned defeat into victory. I congratulate you. Well done.

It's funny, because I'd have thought that in the United States of America, I mean with the sun and all that, the open spaces, on the old campus, in your position, lecturing, in the centre of all the intellectual life out there, on the old campus, all the social whirl, all the stimulation of it all, all your kids and all that, to have fun with, down by the pool, the Greyhound buses and all that, tons of iced water, all the comfort of those Bermuda shorts and all that, on the old campus, no time of the day or night you can't get a cup of coffee or a Dutch gin, I'd have thought you'd have grown more forthcoming, not less. Because I want you to know that you set a standard for us, Teddy. Your family looks up to you, boy, and you know what it does? It does its best to follow the example you set. Because you're a great source of pride to us. That's why we were so glad to see you come back, to welcome you back to your birthplace. That's why.
