objective

Life, in my estimation, is a biological misadventure that we terminate on the shoulders of six strange men whose only objective is to make a hole in one with you.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If we justify war, it is because all peoples always justify the traits of which they find themselves possessed, not because war will bear an objective examination of its merits.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Progressive art can assist people to learn not only about the objective forces at work in the society in which they live, but also about the intensely social character of their interior lives. Ultimately, it can propel people toward social emancipation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What every man needs, regardless of his job or the kind of work he is doing, is a vision of what his place is and may be. He needs an objective and a purpose. He needs a feeling and a belief that he has some worthwhile thing to do. What this is no one can tell him. It must be his own creation. Its success will be measured by the nature of his vision, what he has done to equip himself, and how well he has performed along the line of its development.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Many people flounder about in life because they do not have a purpose, an objective toward which to work.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You can do what you want to do, accomplish what you want to accomplish, attain any reasonable objective you may have in mind -- not all of a sudden, perhaps not in one swift and sweeping act of achievement -- but you can do it gradually, day by day and play by play, if you want to do it, if you work to do it, over a sufficiently long period of time.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Saying that a great genius is mad, while at the same time recognizing his artistic worth, is like saying that he had rheumatism or suffered from diabetes. Madness, in fact, is a medical term that can claim no more notice from the objective critic than he grants the charge of heresy raised by the theologian, or the charge of immorality raised by the police.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The real thinking of woman is pre-eminently practical and applied. It is something we describe as sound common sense, and is usually directed to what is close at hand and personal. In general, it can be said that feminine mentality manifests an undeveloped, childlike, or primitive character; instead of the thirst for knowledge, curiosity; instead of judgment, prejudice; instead of thinking, imagination or dreaming; instead of will, wishing. Where a man takes up objective problems, a woman contents herself with solving riddles; where he battles for knowledge and understanding, she contents herself with faith or superstition, or else she makes assumptions.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All married couples should learn the art of battle as they should learn the art of making love. Good battle is objective and honest --never vicious or cruel. Good battle is healthy and constructive, and brings to a marriage the principle of equal partnership.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The creator is both detached and committed, free and yet ensnared, concerned but not too much so. If motivation is too strong the person is blinded; if the objective situation is too tightly structured, the person sees none of its alternative possibilities.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A set definite objective must be established if we are to accomplish anything in a big way.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The lesson of all history warns us that we should negotiate only when our military superiority is so convincing that we can achieve our objective at the conference table, and deny the aggressor theirs.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Humor has been a fashioning instrument in America, cleaving its way through the national life, holding tenaciously to the spread elements of that life. Its mode has often been swift and coarse and ruthless, beyond art and beyond established civilization. It has engaged in warfare against the established heritage, against the bonds of pioneer existence. Its objective --the unconscious objective of a disunited people --has seemed to be that of creating fresh bonds, a new unity, the semblance of a society and the rounded completion of an American type.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I was once ask if a big business man ever reached his objective. I replied that if a man ever reached his objective he was not a big business man.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The subjective mind is entirely under the control of the objective mind. With the utmost fidelity it reproduces and works out to its final consequences whatever the objective mind impresses upon it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Walter Burke: All right, your objective - reach the parking lot with an asset who intends to have sex with you.

Walter Burke: Well, uh, five, actually - one each.More [07/31/2005 12:07:00]
My mom has a good way of engaging me in a conversation about the choices I make, listening, being objective and open-minded, and respecting those choices so long as they don't put me in danger.More [04/17/2006 12:04:00]
But when you're in something together, it's very hard to be objective and you're very subjective.More [09/04/2006 12:09:00]

Congress was acutely aware that for more than a decade before the passage of these laws, every attempt to close or realign a major base in this country had been blocked by Congress itself or by the courts. Congress undoubtedly recognized that objective and prompt decisions concerning base closings are vitally important, particularly at a time of budgetary problems and rapidly changing defense needs.More [08/29/2007 12:08:00]
Richard Thornburg: No you did not explain anything to me. All you did was shove me back here in this cattle car.
Stewardess: Sir, you were told when you boarded we were overbooked.
Richard Thornburg: Fine. Done. I accept that. But why in hell can't I get the first class meal my network paid for. Do you know who I am?
Stewardess: Yes. We've all seen your program. Your episode "Flying Junkyards" was a very objective look at air traffic safety.More [09/04/2007 12:09:00]
Sgt. Charles Biddle: Man, why the fuck did the ops call for me to drive off and leave my buddy exposed? I was parked on his ass. I could've shot that motherfucker and *then* drove off.
Sgt. Larry McRose: You did your job, Sergeant. The objective was secured. The whole thing went smooth until Fry got careless. He died stupid.
Sgt. Charles Biddle: Oh, come on, Larry! If Coker would've sneezed, he would've been late. The ops was too tight. Now you know that and I know that!
Sgt. Larry McRose: Yeah, and Fry knew it too!
Sgt. Charles Biddle: Command is not supposed to put us in those kind of situations!
Sgt. Larry McRose: Command *always* puts us in those situations! What the hell do you think we're here for?!
Sgt. Charles Biddle: Yeah, it still don't change the fact that my buddy's in a body bag. And he ain't in Lebanon or Honduras. Fuckin' Texas.More [10/24/2007 12:10:00]
If the divorced are remarried civilly, they find themselves in a situation that objectively contravenes God’s law. Consequently, they cannot receive Holy Communion as long as this situation persists. This norm is not at all a punishment or a discrimination against the divorced and remarried, but rather expresses an objective situation that of itself renders impossible the reception of Holy Communion: ‘. . . If these people were admitted to the Eucharist, the faithful would be led into error and confusion regarding the Church’s teaching about the indissolubility of marriage’.More [11/21/2007 12:11:00]

M: Gentlemen, this may only be an exercise so far as the Ministry of Defence is concerned. But for me, it is a matter of pride that the 00 section has been chosen for this test. Your objective is to penetrate the radar installations of Gibralter. Now, the SAS has been placed on full alert to intercept you, but I know you won't let me down. Good luck, men.More [08/04/2008 12:08:00]
Jackson Decker:
The last talk I had with you - and it was quite a while ago - still stands. You remember it?



Cpl. J. Wayne Decker:
Wasn't it something to the effect of - I was on my own unless I worked for the Decker Company.



Jackson Decker:
That's right. You're on your own until you came to your senses. You obviously haven't so there's nothing more to be said.



Cpl. J. Wayne Decker:
I'm afraid there is, Dad. You see the objective I raised at that time over you ruthless business methods has cropped up again in this case.



Jackson Decker:

Gentlemen, we will raise our objective within two days. It will be identified by a fortress on a hill overlooking a large bay.


[Hornblower leaves the quarterdeck]



Lt. Crystal:
A fortress... and a wind before morning. Huh! Heat's gone to his head.



Lt. William Bush:
Well, I think he knows more than he's saying.



Lt. Crystal:
Perhaps you'd care to take a wager on it, Mr. Bush?



Lt. William Bush:
How much can you afford?



Lt. Crystal:
Five shillings that says no wind and ten shillings that we don't sight any fortress.



Lt. William Bush:
Done!

Penguin, Joker, Riddler... and Catwoman, too! The sum of the angles of that rectangle is too monstrous to contemplate!

Tanner:
So where are we heading for?



Maj. Eugene Denton:
Albany.



Tanner:
Albany? You have relatives there?



Maj. Eugene Denton:
It's the only place we ever got a signal from. Albany is the place to aim for.



Tanner:
Sort of the objective of the operation, right?



Maj. Eugene Denton:
You could call it that. See, there's a way across... well, not really a way across, but the screens show it to be the path of least resistance. It's not good, but it's the best we've got.



Tanner:
What happens if we make a wrong turn?



Maj. Eugene Denton:
There are areas of radiation we couldn't get through. It's not a matter of wrong turns though - "Damnation Alley" is a hundred miles wide a lot of the way.



Tanner:
"Damnation Alley?" Who named it that?



Maj. Eugene Denton:
I did.

[Sakura rides in Mujaki's "Blue Turtle" cab]



Mujaki:
Things are a mess fer ya 'cause ya think time an' space are objective things. Y'now how time seems down when y're waiting? Fact is, time is simply a creation of your human consciousness. What is there ain't no human beings anywhere in the world? Wouldn't clocks and calendars be a waste? Maybe there ain't no such thing as time that flows in one direction from the past to the future, and never was dontcha think, ma'am? Human beings are slipshod to begin with, so there ain't nothing strange 'bout time being slipshod too. If ev'rything was all hunky-dory then THAT'D be weird! The only certain thing is the present, that just keeps flowin' like this. Ain't that the best way to think 'bout it?



Sakura:
Interesting. Maybe I really AM riding a turtle.

Paul:
Do you remember some years ago when I showed you something I'd written, do you remember what you said?



Marion:
No, I don't remember. I was probably just trying to be truthful.



Paul:
Yes, I'm sure. You said, "This is overblown, it's too emotional, it's maudlin. Your dreams may be meaningful to you, but to the objective observer, it's just so embarrassing."



Marion:
I said that?



Paul:
Exactly your words. So I tried not to embarrass you any more.
