sensitivity

A woman simply is, but a man must become. Masculinity is risky and elusive. It is achieved by a revolt from woman, and it is confirmed only by other men. Manhood coerced into sensitivity is no manhood at all.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The vanity of men, a constant insult to women, is also the ground for the implicit feminine claim of superior sensitivity and morality.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Sandra: [talking about Warhol] Leave it to Andy to have the wisdom and sensitivity into the hours and hours of toil and labor that went into the Indian product, and they've been so lucky to cash in on this whole Santa Fe thing happening.More [11/14/2005 12:11:00]
We do not read (the law) to elevate accommodation of religious observances over an institution’s need to maintain order and safety, … We have no cause to believe that (the law) would not be applied in an appropriately balanced way, without sensitivity to security concerns.More [07/02/2007 12:07:00]
Lt. Jordan O'Neil: [commenting on the special standard for her training] I mean really sir, why don't you just issue me a pink petticoat to wear around the base?
C.O. Salem: Did you just have a brain fart, Lieutenant?
Lt. Jordan O'Neil: Begging your pardon, sir?
C.O. Salem: Did you just waltz in here and bark at your commanding officer? Because if you did, I would call that a bona fide brain fart, and I resent it when people FART inside my office!
Lt. Jordan O'Neil: I think you've resented me from the start, sir.
C.O. Salem: What I resent, Lieutenant, is some politician using my base as a test tube for her grand social experiment. What I resent, is the sensitivity training that is now mandatory for all of my men. The ob-gyn I now have to keep on staff just to keep track of your personal pap smears. But most of all what I resent, is your perfume, however subtle, interfering with the scent of my fine three-dollar-and-seventy-nine-cent cigar, which I will put out this instant if the phallic nature of it happens to offend your GODDAMN FRAGILE SENSIBILITIES! Does it?
Lt. Jordan O'Neil: No, sir.
C.O. Salem: "No, sir" WHAT?
Lt. Jordan O'Neil: The shape doesn't bother me. Just the goddamn sweet stench.More [12/06/2007 12:12:00]
Avery Bishop: There is a sensitivity thing that some people have. I don't have it. I don't cry at movies, I don't gush over babies, I don't buy Christmas presents 5 months early, and I DON'T tell the guy who just ruined both our lives, "Oh, poor baby." But I do love you.More [05/03/2008 12:05:00]
Too often a story is examined through biased eyes, without a sensitivity for everyone who forged it. It's seen from the point of view of the great white savior, and rarely is the perspective of the slave a part.More [09/21/2008 12:09:00]
Zena Sherman:
You got an attitude problem, you got a personality problem, you got a sensitivity problem, you got an emotional problem, you got a maturity problem, you got a sexual problem...



Louie De Palma:
What do you mean?



Zena Sherman:
That's all you think about!



Louie De Palma:
And that's the problem?



Zena Sherman:
Yeah.



Louie De Palma:
Whew!

Professor West:
For a woman who has the sensitivity of a slut... to the point of giving her lover the identical watch she gave to her husband as an anniversary present, I will not accept lessons.

[Marcy has forced Jefferson to go to a men's sensitivity training session]



Al:
Jefferson! Good, you're right on time. The Three Stooges marathon is about to start.



Jefferson:
[monotone] The Three Stooges are not funny. You know who I think is funny? That Elaine Boozler is funny.



Al:
Oh my God! Those women have brainwashed him. We'll have to deprogram him!


[holds up two fingers]



Al:
Quick, how many fingers am I holding up?


[pokes Jefferson in the eyes]



Jefferson:
Whoa, thanks Al. They almost had me that time.

Kay:
Oh, good morning, my little worker ants! That's just a figure of speech; I would NEVER compare you to insects. At least not after that sensitivity training seminar those maggots at the network forced me to attend!

Nick Carraway:
[First lines]


[narrating]



Nick Carraway:
In my younger and more vulnerable years, my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since. "Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone," he told me, "just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages you've had." While reserving judgments is a matter of infinite hope, I've come to admit that my tolerance of human behavior has its limits. Gatsby, the man who gives his name to this story, represented everything for which I have an unaffected scorn. And yet there was something gorgeous about him. Some hightened sensitivity to the promises of life, a romantic readiness such as I've never found in any other person and which it is not likely I'll ever find again.

I'd appreciate if you handle this with a little bit of sensitivity. I don't know if you know this or not, but I'm up for a promotion this year. So if word got out...



Nigel:
Woody, Woody, Woody... I promise that I will keep an open mind, okay? And anyway sensitivity is my middle name.


[opens the door]



Nigel:
[shouts] Sweet Mary in the manger!

Meditation will bring you sensitivity, a great sense of belonging to the world. It is our world - the stars are ours, and we are not foreigners here. We are part of it, we are the heart of it. And this sensitivity will create new friendships for you - friendships with trees, with birds, with animals, with mountains, with rivers, with oceans, with stars. Life becomes richer as love grows.More [07/13/2011 09:07:50]
I think because people are passing - people that we are aware of are passing at - I don't say a great pace, but it seems like people are dropping, and I think it's just making - there's a consciousness and there's sensitivity to it.More [07/25/2011 11:07:48]
You could write a song about some kind of emotional problem you are having, but it would not be a good song, in my eyes, until it went through a period of sensitivity to a moment of clarity. Without that moment of clarity to contribute to the song, it's just complaining.More [07/26/2011 06:07:13]

When you have an acoustic bass in the ensemble it really changes the dynamic of the record because it kind of forces everybody to play with a greater degree of sensitivity and nuance because it just has a different kind of tone and spectrum than the electric bass.More [10/05/2012 09:10:15]
Actors and actresses have sensitivity bludgeoned out of them at birth. We are that rare combination of vanity and self-obsession. Actually, I don't know about Damian, but I do get nervous, especially when speaking in public without a script. I had to present the prizes for an under-12s poetry-reading once. I was performing in three plays at the Olivier Theatre, back to back, 17 hours with no nerves whatsoever, but I stood up to say a few words and my voice wavered and I became self-conscious. ... My trouble is I make no connection between myself and what I do on stage or in front of a camera, so when I am being myself I get very, very nervous and take tranquillisers.More [11/09/2012 11:11:31]

There's so much with my character in 'Dredd' that I identify with. She's my favorite character I think I've ever played.

Feast of William Tyndale, Translator of the Scriptures, Martyr, 1536 If those who say that we must preach the same message as Paul and the other apostles mean that we should also exhibit the same adaptability and sensitivity to the background culture, then they are right... If, however, they mean that we should expect results merely by repeating the actual phrases found in the New Testament, then they are mistaken. They are making, in fact, one of the basic mistakes in verbal communication, which is to confuse wordsMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
