suggestion

People with a culture of poverty suffer much less from repression than we of the middle class suffer and indeed, if I may make the suggestion with due qualification, they often have a hell of a lot more fun than we have.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A society that has made nostalgia a marketable commodity on the cultural exchange quickly repudiates the suggestion that life in the past was in any important way better than life today.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Cannons and fire-arms are cruel and damnable machines; I believe them to have been the direct suggestion of the Devil. If Adam had seen in a vision the horrible instruments his children were to invent, he would have died of grief.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]
Dave McCue: Nothing's changed. Look, Abby isn't trying to take over. She just made a suggestion that made sense to me. I'm just "Yes Anding".
Kip Kessler: Yeah, look, don't use improv against me.More [10/13/2005 12:10:00]
Abby Jamison: What the fuck are you doing here, asshole?
James: Hey, it's an open audition.
Abby Jamison: You're not auditioning. You're here to make me insane.
James: What are you auditioning for, the part of psycho-bitch? Cause you had me at "hello."
James: [Abby walks off the stage, chasing James into the lobby.] It's a shame the suggestion wasn't "tit flash at Creed concert", 'cause you would'a nailed that one.More [10/13/2005 12:10:00]

Merry: [to the suggestion of returning home] The fires of Isengard will spread, and the forests of Tuckborough and Buckland will burn. And all that was once great and good in this world will be gone. There won't *be* a Shire, Pippin.More [03/20/2007 12:03:00]
It is one I deeply regret. I dealt with this issue in October 2003, fully and completely. Everything that I have done all along in this process has been for the purpose of aiding and supporting the work of the 9/11 commission and any suggestion to the contrary is simply, absolutely wrong.More [07/08/2007 12:07:00]
Col. Max Radl: A wink from a pretty girl at a party results rarely in climax, Karl. But a man is a fool not to push a suggestion as far as it will go.More [10/04/2007 12:10:00]
Col. Jessep: Hmmmm... transfer Santiago. Yes, I'm sure you're right. I'm sure that's the thing to do. Wait a minute, I have a better idea. Let's transfer the whole squad off the base. Let's... On second thought, Windward! Let's transfer the whole Windward Division off the base. John, go on out there get those boys down off the fence, they're packing their bags. Tom!
Tom: Yes, sir!
Col. Jessep: Get me the President on the phone right away. We're surrendering our position in Cuba!
Tom: Yes, sir.
Col. Jessep: Wait a minute, Tom, don't get the President just yet. Maybe we should consider this a second. Dismissed, Tom. Maybe, and I'm just spit balling here, maybe, we have a responsibility as officers to traing Santiago. Maybe we as officers have a responsibility to this country to see to it that the men and women charged with its security are trained professionals. Yes, I'm certain I remember reading that somewhere once. And now I'm thinking,Col. Markinson, that your suggestion of transferring Santiago, while expeditious and certainly painless, might not be, in a matter of speaking, the American way. Santiago stays where he is. We're gonna train the lad!More [11/05/2007 12:11:00]
William J. 'Pop' Shea: Well, Mr. Wendling, I can't possibly raise the money in five days.
Roger Wendling: Well, Mr. Shea, I was going to make a suggestion before your daughter so graciously knighted me. I was going to suggest that perhaps I could lend you the twenty-five hundred. Why not?
William J. 'Pop' Shea: You'd lend...? Thanks a million!
Betsy Brown: Thanks TWO million- one for me!
Barbara Shea: I'm sorry, but we can't accept your generous offer.
William J. 'Pop' Shea: Why not, Barbara?
Barbara Shea: Because I don't know how we'd be able to pay it back, and we're not going to be at the mercy of some spiteful old moneybag who calls us a lot of riffraff!More [07/29/2008 12:07:00]
Judge: Young lady, do you realize that you're guilty of contempt of court?
Betsy Brown: I'm awfully sorry, Mr. Judge, but it just made me mad to hear Miss Wendling say those things about my friends. They're not true. They're wonderful actors, just wonderful!
Judge: This young lady doesn't seem to agree with you, Miss Wendling.
Betsy Brown: That's because she never saw them act, did you, Miss Wendling? And if you saw them act, Mr. Judge, if you saw Jimmy and his Jazz Bandits and everyone, you'd think they were wonderful, too!
Perry: Your honor, if it pleases the court...
Judge: Just a minute. I believe this court could be saved a lot of time and argument by following the splendid suggestion that has just been made. It seems the immediate issue in this case is whether the plaintiff's wish to invest his money in a theatrical production is a sound one. I want to see the show right here in this courtroom tomorrow!More [07/29/2008 12:07:00]
Bill Sampson:
This is my cue to take you in my arms and reassure you. But I'm not going to -- I'm too mad.



Margo Channing:
Guilty!



Bill Sampson:
Mad! Darling, there are certain characteristics for which you are famous, on stage and off. I love you for some of them, in spite of others. I haven't let those become too important. They're part of your equipment for getting along in what is laughingly called our environment. You have to keep your teeth sharp -- all right -- but I will not have you sharpen them on me, or on Eve!



Margo Channing:
What about her teeth? What about her fangs?



Bill Sampson:
She hasn't cut them yet, and you know it! So when you start judging an idealistic, dreamy-eyed kid by the barroom Benzedrine standards of this megalomaniac society, I won't have it! Eve Harrington has never, by word, look, thought, or suggestion indicated anything to me but her adoration for you and her happiness at our being in love. And to intimate anything else doesn't spell jealousy to me -- it spells a paranoiac insecurity that you should be ashamed of!



Margo Channing:
Cut! Print it! What happens in the next reel? Do I get dragged off screaming to the snake pits?

Paul Regret:
Mind a suggestion friend? Trouble with you is you don't enjoy the game for its own rewards: stimulation, relaxation, pleasant association, and interesting conversation.



Tully Crow:
Shut your mouth.

[Mr. McHabe notices Miss Barrett walking towards class with a homemade suggestion box]



J.J. McHabe:
Oh. Suggestions, Miss Barrett, ahh? I must say you've got guts.



Sylvia Barrett:
It's just an idea, Mr. McHabe. It seems to me that if the students have a chance to speak freely without fear of punishment...



J.J. McHabe:
Listen, you start running this school with ideas, you'll have riots in your rooms. Fear - That's all they understand.

Mr. Rogers:
Here are some things that some children gave me and gave me a good suggestion to go with them. This is an empty milk container and they said it could be an apartment house. Good idea? This is an empty oats box. They said it could be a tunnel. What about that? And this is a cottage cheese container. It could be a lake. Let's just take these things to the sand table on the other side of the kitchen.

[about a suggestion in the suggestion box]



Captain Peacock:
This one is unsigned, and suggests that you do something physically impossible with the suggestion box.

Lord Peter Wimsey:
Well, I think we can say we've made some progess. Even if it's a bit on the negative side.



Sir Impey Biggs:
Negative? Exactly! By heaven, negative indeed! Have you the faintest idea how seriously your activities have succeeded in damaging the case for the defense?



Lord Peter Wimsey:
Well, that's a nice thing to say, when we've cleared up such a lot of points for you.



Sir Impey Biggs:
I daresay. Points better left muffled up! Light where there was better darkness!



Lord Peter Wimsey:
But damn it, we only want to get at the truth!



Sir Impey Biggs:
Do you? Well, I don't! I don't care tuppence for the truth. I want a case. It doesn't matter to me who killed Cathcart, provided that I can prove that it wasn't Denver. It's really enough if I can throw reasonable doubt that it was Denver. Here's a client who comes to me with a story of a quarrel, a mysterious revolver, a refusal to produce evidence of his statements, and a totally inadequate and idiotic alibi. I arrange to obfuscate the jury with mysterious footprints, a discrepancy as to time, a young woman with a secret, and a general vague suggestion of something between a burglary and a crime passionel. And here you come! Explaining the footprints, exculpating the unknown man, abolishing the discrepancies, clearing up the motives of the young woman, and most carefully throwing back suspicion to where it rested in the first place.



Lord Peter Wimsey:
I always said the professional advocate was the most amoral person on the face of the earth. I'm certain of it now.

Lisa:
It seems every week the Simpsons go through a situation like this. My suggestion is to just ride it out, make the occasional smart-aleck quip, and next week, we'll return right to where we were, ready for another wacky adventure.



Bart:
Aye carumba.



Lisa:
That's the spirit.

Zach:
I've never felt this way before. I'm seriously unhappy. This is just not the bush-league blues. We're talking major-league depression here. I can't sleep. I take pills. But they only last a couple of hours and then I'm up at 4:00 in the morning pacing the fucking house or walking on the cold fucking beach. I'm so miserable, I wanna fucking shoot myself. But, I can't because I'm afraid to die. How's that for fucked-up?


[Zach hits the wall and starts sobbing]



Zach:
So what's the answer? Oh, I forgot. You don't have answers. You're not the burning bush. You just give suggestions. Well, I need help. I'm in the fucking dumper. Give me a suggestion because I know you've got one. I can see it in those beady little Freudian eyes.



Dr. Westford:
If an alcoholic wants me to cure him, you know what I say?


[sighs]



Zach:
That's a question. That's not a suggestion.


[sighs again]



Zach:
Okay. What do you say?



Dr. Westford:
First, stop drinking.



Zach:
I don't get it.



Dr. Westford:
Go home and think about it. That's my suggestion.

Brian Hackett:
[after a suggestion is made to make s'mores] No, I hate s'mores!



Joe:
How could you hate s'mores?



Brian Hackett:
Because that's the stupidest name for a food, like "It's so good, I want s-more," Those are so stupid, they should be called stupids!

Jon Stewart:
Even if the flag burning amendment does become law, the larger problem will remain of how to respectfully dispose of older, tattered flags. Well, fortunately the U.S. official Flag Code has a suggestion about this. "The flag, when it is in such a condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning." Owwwwcchh. In response, the House Republicans are calling for tattered flags to be kept alive via a feeding tube.

Mike:
Hey, that is it. I'm officially taking down the suggestion box. "Wisconsin Rules!" is not a suggestion.

Joe:
So what's the seminar your dad's goin' to?



Alan:
"How to Make a Success of Your Small Buisness." My suggestion was torch the place.



Joe:
Not a good idea. Arson forensics nowadays is very sophisticated.

Boog:
I just want to get laid, that's all.



Patti:
Well, Boog, my funkified little friend, my suggestion is either double up on the whackin' off, or turn faggot super-quick 'cause it ain't happening here.



Boog:
I tried being queer for a while, but... guys don't like me, either.

Your methodologies are antiquated and weak. Your procedures of approval ensure that only the least radical ideas are rewarded. Meanwhile your competition is innovating.

Dylan:
[quietly] Ow.

Red Star Systems Techie:
I said the coke machine should be free.

Mr. Spacely:
Jetson, there's a leak around here and I want it stopped.



George Jetson:
Yes, sir. I know a very good plumber: Mr. Skywrench.



Mr. Spacely:
An *industrial* leak, you molecule brain! And don't play innocent with me, Jetson. I have my suspicions where that leak is coming from, and it's you!



George Jetson:
Me?



Mr. Spacely:
How else can I explain Cogswell stealing every major I come up with right from under my nose?



George Jetson:
Well, I... I... I...



Mr. Spacely:
Darn right it's you, you, you!



George Jetson:
But sir...



Mr. Spacely:
I spent a fortune romancing General Blackhole just to get that secret contract to the Interstellar Lunar Probe. Nobody else knew it existed, but are they using Spacely Sprockets? No! They're using Cogswell Cogs!



George Jetson:
How do you suppose Mr. Cogswell got wind of it, Mr. Spacely?



Mr. Spacely:
From a windbag like you, Jetson!



R.U.D.I.:
No, no...



Mr. Spacely:
[to R.U.D.I] I told you to butt out!


[R.U.D.I. tunes out]



Mr. Spacely:
Cogswell's beaten me out of every one of my secret projects, from the Lunar Probe to the Humphrey Bogar Lookalike sprocket for the nostalgia buffs.



R.U.D.I.:
[tuning in momentarily] Too bad, sweetheart.



George Jetson:
Uh, what can we do, boss?



Mr. Spacely:
Not me, you, Jetson! You want to clear your name? Then find out how Cogswell's getting his information.



George Jetson:
[gasp] You mean, *spy*? Are you suggesting I spy on him, Mr. Spacely?



Mr. Spacely:
Either that or you're fired.



George Jetson:
Spying isn't a bad suggestion when you put it that way, sir.



Mr. Spacely:
Good.

Now you can sympathize with him, nosy.

Trance, that's Iridano sign language, and I think you just made a rather naughty suggestion to Harper.

Michael Buerk:
Liza Minelli has defended the Picasso-faced pop freak Michael Jackson, saying the singer did nothing wrong by dangling his baby son out of a six-storey hotel window. But there is the suggestion she may have been influenced into making the statement, by the fact that Jackson was hanging her out of a six-storey hotel window at the time.

I want to give the audience a hint of a scene. No more than that. Give them too much and they won't contribute anything themselves. Give them just a suggestion and you get them working with you. That's what gives the theater meaning: when it becomes a social act.More [07/12/2011 01:07:59]

A state that suppresses all freedom of speech, and which by imposing the most terrible punishments, treats each and every attempt at criticism, however morally justified, and every suggestion for improvement as plotting to high treason, is a state that breaks an unwritten law.More [08/31/2011 08:08:20]
The susceptibility of the average modern to pictorial suggestion enables advertising to exploit his lessened power of judgment.More [09/01/2011 07:09:40]
There is no more reason why the features belonging to a picture should be distorted for the purpose of such imaginative suggestion than that the poet's metaphors should spoil his words for the ordinary uses of man.More [09/01/2011 08:09:57]
My suggestion is that at each state the proper order of operation of the mind requires an overall grasp of what is generally known, not only in formal logical, mathematical terms, but also intuitively, in images, feelings, poetic usage of language, etcMore [10/17/2011 03:10:37]
During this time I had the singular good fortune of being able to discuss the problem constantly with Einstein. Some experiments done at Einstein's suggestion yielded no decisively new result.More [10/19/2011 04:10:30]
If the world has begun with a single quantum, the notions of space and would altogether fail to have any meaning at the beginning; they would only begin to have a sensible meaning when the original quantum had been divided into a sufficient number of quanta. If this suggestion is correct, the beginning of the world happened a little before the beginning of space and time. I think that such a beginning of the world is far enough from the present order of Nature to be not at all repugnant. It may be difficult to follow up the idea in detail as we are not yet able to count the quantum packets in every case. For example, it may be that an atomic nucleus must be counted as a unique quantum, the atomic number acting as a kind of quantum number. If the future development of quantum theory happens to turn in that direction, we could conceive the beginning of the universe in the form of a unique atom, the atomic weight of which is the total mass of the universe. This highly unstable atom would divide in smaller and smaller atoms by a kind of super-radioactive process.More [01/24/2012 05:01:21]

(The term Islamist generally refers to people and parties who support a guiding role for Islam in politics and government. It covers a wide spectrum, from those who think Islamic values should inform public policy decisions to those who think all laws should be judged or even formulated by Islamic authorities to conform to Islamic law. Not all Islamists are alike. In some cases, Islamist leaders and organizations have been hostile to democracy, including some who have supported radical, extremist, and terrorist ideology and actions. But around the world, there are political parties with religious affiliations—Hindu, Christian, Jewish, Muslim—that respect the rules of democratic politics, and it is in America’s interest to encourage all religiously based political parties and leaders to embrace inclusive democracy and reject violence. Any suggestion that faithful Muslims or people of any faith cannot thrive in a democracy is insulting, dangerous, and wrong. They do it in our own country every day.)More Har [06/21/2016 08:06:18]

The new church of St. John's, on Fifth Avenue, was thronged the
morning of the last Sunday of October, in the year 1880. Sitting

There is in St. Paul's definite, soul-stirring assertion of the wrath of God and the reality of the judgment at hand, a truth more profound than any that underlies our somewhat enfeebled ideas of universal benevolence and the determined progress of the race.
