servants

If they are ignorant, they are despised, if learned, mocked. In love they are reduced to the status of courtesans. As wives they are treated more as servants than as companions. Men do not love them: they make use of them, they exploit them, and expect, in that way, to make them subject to the law of fidelity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

He who would be useful, strong, and happy must cease to be a passive receptacle for the negative, beggarly, and impure streams of thought; and as a wise householder commands his servants and invites his guests, so must he learn to command his desires and to say, with authority, what thoughts he shall admit into the mansion of his soul.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Man is more disposed to domination than freedom; and a structure of dominion not only gladdens the eye of the master who rears and protects it, but even its servants are uplifted by the thought that they are members of a whole, which rises high above the life and strength of single generations.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Successful democratic politicians are insecure and intimidated men. They advance politically only as they placate, appease, bribe, seduce, bamboozle, or otherwise manage to manipulate the demanding and threatening elements in their constituencies. The decisive consideration is not whether the proposition is good but whether it is popular -- not whether it will work well and prove itself but whether the active talking constituents like it immediately. Politicians rationalize this servitude by saying that in a democracy public men are the servants of the people.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

DAAAAH!



Gilmer:
Accordingly he sent for the man.



Robin:
You scoundrel!



Gilmer:
He said to him!



Robin:
I remitted the whole of your debt when you appealed unto me. Were you not bound to show your fellow servant the same pity I showed to you?

You know Tim, there's an old folk saying. Obsessions are like fire and water. Good servants, but bad masters. See the point is: do you rule your obsession, or does your obsession rule you?


[later]

Governor Maclahose:
What I'm talking is very serious corruption in Hong Kong. As much as 95% of the civil servants are involved.



Former Governor Trench:
This is a bad tradition in Chinese society. They live in relationships and bribery. Anything can be solved with money. The situation is worsening and the problem is difficult to solve.



Governor Maclahose:
As long as we have determination, I'll clear them once I commence work.

What will you do if there's a rock in front of your path?

Sergeant Wong Yat-Chung:
Let me ask you a question. How much do you know about corruption in Hong Kong? You're not facing a few thousand policemen. It's a few hundred thousand civil servants and four million Hong Kong people If everyone had the habit of paying dirty money, they'll think that going by the back door is a proper thing. They all belong to the corruption group. What's the use of anti-corruption?

More [06/16/2016 01:06:42]
Sergeant Wong Yat-Chung:
Now, it isn't businessmen having mutual benefits. Civil servants are doing the same. They defend for their benefits. Civil servants know the rule and offend the rule. They defend prostitution and gambling. Drugs can be sold publicly. These are the harmless effects of corruption.

Mr. Stevens, look at that chinaman and tell me the truth!



Stevens:

Sabrina:
Once upon a time, on the north shore of Long Island, not far from New York, there was a very very large mansion, almost a castle, where there lived a family by the name of Larrabee. There were servants inside the mansion, and servants outside the mansion; boatmen to tend the boats, and six crews of gardeners: two for the solarium, the rest for the grounds, and a tree surgeon on retainer. There were specialists for the indoor tennis courts, and the outdoor tennis courts, the outdoor swimming pool, and the indoor swimming pool. And over the garage there lived a chauffeur by the name of Fairchild, imported from England years ago, together with a Rolls Royce; and a daughter, named Sabrina.

Max Schreck:
It made me sad.



Albin:
Why sad?



Max Schreck:
Because Dracula had no servants.



Albin:
I think you missed the point of the book, Count Orlock.



Max Schreck:
Dracula hasn't had servants in 400 years and then a man comes to his ancestral home, and he must convince him that he... that he is like the man. He has to feed him, when he himself hasn't eaten food in centuries. Can he even remember how to buy bread? How to select cheese and wine? And then he remembers the rest of it. How to prepare a meal, how to make a bed. He remembers his first glory, his armies, his retainers, and what he is reduced to. The loneliest part of the book comes... when the man accidentally sees Dracula setting his table.

In desperate times, the good Lord looks over the flock and chooses one man to inspire the multitudes; one man to accomplish the impossible; one man to offer hope where there was only hopelessness; and who are we to judge the wisdom of the Almighty? He chooses his servants to fit his plan and when he chooses his servant from the flock and gifts them with talents, it is a grave sin to bury them in the earth.

[Telling his fake news story] The most shocking orgy since the days of Sodom and Gomorrah rocked society last night.



Typist:
Hold the presses, get down to compositing. Now.



Simon Balcairn:
The vulgar evangelist, Mrs. Melrose Ape, proudly revealed that her angels were no more than underage adornments on sale to the highest bidder. Meanwhile, tears coursing down her face, the honorable Agatha... , whose repulsive liason with the Prime Minister shocked the nation this week, bewailed her, quote: "Ruined, bogus, vapid, bogus, and worthless life," unquote.


[pause]



Simon Balcairn:
Yes, two boguses. Lady Maitland, shrieking of her terrible dependence upon cocaine powder, threw off her Schiaparelli ball gown and stood naked upon the dance floor, an example quickly followed by old and young alike until only the servants remained clothed. And grotesquely hairy Archie Schwert, swinging naked from the chandelier, screamed that all his money derived from prostitution and the opium trade. Lady Maitland's son Miles howled and howled and confessed to an intimate beastliness involving five guardsmen of the royal household, two marines, and a brick layer from Hattersfield. Nina Blount... Nina Blount grasped her stomach, screamed she was a whore, and misquoted several lines of Lady MacBeth whilst Adam Fenwick-Symes cried on heaven to bear witness to his talentless penury and hopeless illiteracy.
