Nothing lifts me out of a bad mood better than a hard workout on my treadmill. It never fails. To us, exercise is nothing short of a miracle.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All the power that we exercise over others depends on the power we exercise over ourselves.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
People who exercise their embryonic freedom day after day, little by little, expand that freedom. People who do not will find that it withers until they are literally being lived. They are acting out scripts written by parents, associates and society.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The wealth and prosperity of the country are only the comeliness of the body, the fullness of the flesh and fat; but the spirit is independent of them; it requires only muscle, bone and nerve for the true exercise of its functions. We cannot lose our liberty, because we cannot cease to think.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Ordinary people think that talent must be always on its own level and that it arises every morning like the sun, rested and refreshed, ready to draw from the same storehouse -- always open, always full, always abundant -- new treasures that it will heap up on those of the day before; such people are unaware that, as in the case of all mortal things, talent has its increase and decrease, and that independently of the career it takes, like everything that breathes... it undergoes all the accidents of health, of sickness, and of the dispositions of the soul -- its gaiety or its sadness. As with our perishable flesh. talent is obliged constantly to keep guard over itself, to combat, and to keep perpetually on the alert amid the obstacles that witness the exercise of its singular power.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I get my exercise acting as a pallbearer to my friends who exercise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Wooing the press is an exercise roughly akin to picnicking with a tiger. You might enjoy the meal, but the tiger always eats last.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
People exercise an unconscious selection in being influenced.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Opinion is that exercise of the human will which helps us to make a decision without information.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
... I remember you and recall you without effort, without exercise of will; that is, by natural impulse, indicated by a sense of duty, or of obligation. And that, I take it, is the only sort of remembering worth the having. When we think of friends, and call their faces out of the shadows, and their voices out of the echoes that faint along the corridors of memory, and do it without knowing why save that we love to do it, we content ourselves that friendship is a Reality, and not a Fancy -- that it is built upon a rock, and not upon the sands that dissolve away with the ebbing tides and carry their monuments with them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A man with a surplus can control circumstances, but a man without a surplus is controlled by them, and often has no opportunity to exercise judgment.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A state that denies its citizens their basic rights becomes a danger to its neighbors as well: internal arbitrary rule will be reflected in arbitrary external relations. The suppression of public opinion, the abolition of public competition for power and its public exercise opens the way for the state power to arm itself in any way it sees fit. A state that does not hesitate to lie to its own people will not hesitate to lie to other states.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Freedom is but the possibility of a various and indefinite activity; while government, or the exercise of dominion, is a single, yet real activity. The longing for freedom, therefore, is at first only too frequently suggested by the deep-felt consciousness of its absence.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
True enjoyment comes from activity of the mind and exercise of the body; the two are ever united.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Whenever I feel like exercise I lie down until the feeling passes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have never been able to conceive how any rational being could propose happiness to himself from the exercise of power over others.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise of the most boisterous passions, the most unremitting despotism on the one part, and degrading submissions on the other. Our children see this, and learn to imitate it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The exercise of power in this century has meant for all of us in the United States not arrogance, but agony.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Great abilities are not requisite for an Historian; for in historical composition, all the greatest powers of the human mind are quiescent. He has facts ready to his hand; so there is no exercise of invention. Imagination is not required in any degree; only about as much as is used in the lowest kinds of poetry. Some penetration, accuracy, and coloring, will fit a man for the task, if he can give the application which is necessary.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Sorrow is a kind of rust of the soul, which every new idea contributes in its passage to scour away. It is the putrefaction of stagnant life, and is remedied by exercise and motion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A population weakened and exhausted by battling against so many obstacles -- whose needs are never satisfied and desires never fulfilled -- is vulnerable to manipulation and regimentation. The struggle for survival is, above all, an exercise that is hugely time-consuming, absorbing and debilitating. If you create these anti-conditions, your rule is guaranteed for a hundred years.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is a good morning exercise for a research scientist to discard a pet hypothesis every day before breakfast. It keeps him young.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Business, more than any other occupation, is a continual dealing with the future; it is a continual calculation, an instinctive exercise in foresight.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Today, and every day, deliver more than you are getting paid to do. The victory of success will be half won when you learn the secret of putting out more than is expected in all that you do. Make yourself so valuable in your work that eventually you will become indispensable. Exercise your privilege to go the extra mile, and enjoy all the rewards you receive. You deserve them!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Why do strong arms fatigue themselves with frivolous dumbbells? To dig a vineyard is worthier exercise for men.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In my opinion, the most fruitful and natural play of the mind is in conversation. I find it sweeter than any other action in life; and if I were forced to choose, I think I would rather lose my sight than my hearing and voice. The study of books is a drowsy and feeble exercise which does not warm you up.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The love of our private friends is the only preparatory exercise for the love of all men.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To exercise power costs effort and demands courage. That is why so many fail to assert rights to which they are perfectly entitled -- because a right is a kind of power but they are too lazy or too cowardly to exercise it. The virtues which cloak these faults are called patience and forbearance.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nirvana or lasting enlightenment or true spiritual growth can be achieved only through persistent exercise of real love.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The noblest exercise of the mind within doors, and most befitting a person of quality, is study.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Advocates of capitalism are very apt to appeal to the sacred principles of liberty, which are embodied in one maxim: The fortunate must not be restrained in the exercise of tyranny over the unfortunate.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every principle is a judgment, every judgment the outcome of experience, and experience is only acquired by the exercise of the senses; whence it follows that religious principles bear upon nothing whatever and are not in the slightest innate. Ignorance and fear, you will repeat to them, ignorance and fear -- those are the twin bases of every religion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tone the spirit just as exercise conditions the body.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The discovery of the good taste of bad taste can be very liberating. The man who insists on high and serious pleasures is depriving himself of pleasure; he continually restricts what he can enjoy; in the constant exercise of his good taste he will eventually price himself out of the market, so to speak. Here Camp taste supervenes upon good taste as a daring and witty hedonism. It makes the man of good taste cheerful, where before he ran the risk of being chronically frustrated. It is good for the digestion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body. It is wholesome and bracing for the mind to have its faculties kept on the stretch.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To be wholly devoted to some intellectual exercise is to have succeeded in life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In the school of political projectors, I was but ill entertained, the professors appearing, in my judgment, wholly out of their senses; which is a scene that never fails to make me melancholy. These unhappy people were proposing schemes for persuading monarchs to choose favorites upon the score of their wisdom, capacity, and virtue; of teaching ministers to consult the public good; of rewarding merit, great abilities, and eminent services, of instructing princes to know their true interest, by placing it on the same foundation with that of their people; of choosing for employment persons qualified to exercise them; with many other wild impossible chimeras, that never entered before into the heart of man to conceive; and confirmed in me the old observation, that there is nothing so extravagant and irrational which some philosophers have not maintained for truth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The only way for a rich man to be healthy is by exercise and abstinence, to live as if he were poor.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To read well, that is, to read true books in a true spirit, is a noble exercise, and one that will task the reader more than any other exercise which the customs of the day esteem. It requires a training such as the athletes underwent, the steady intention almost of the whole life to this object.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have never taken any exercise except sleeping and resting.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Too many people confine their exercise to jumping to conclusions, running up bills, stretching the truth, bending over backward, lying down on the job, sidestepping responsibility and pushing their luck.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Truth is the greatest gift of life and love is the exercise of that truth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Conversation is an exercise of the mind; gossip is merely an exercise of the tongue.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Generosity is another quality which, like patience, letting go, non-judging, and trust, provides a solid foundation for mindfulness practice. You might experiment with using the cultivation of generosity as a vehicle for deep self-observation and inquiry as well as an exercise in giving. A good place to start is with yourself. See if you can give yourself gifts that may be true blessings, such as self-acceptance, or some time each day with no purpose. Practice feeling deserving enough to accept these gifts without obligation-to simply receive from yourself, and from the universe.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
With narration, you have to be very accurate with your voice. It's a good exercise to do.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
But that's my favorite part is to write a character background. I write everything from what kind of house they grew up into to their whatever their fear in school was, or did they play sports? I write a whole person which is just fun to do anyway as an exercise just for your imagination.More [07/27/2006 12:07:00]
I do it because I want to exercise people's compassion and I do it because I really believe that for some reason what I do is important and meaningful.More [09/04/2006 12:09:00]
Whether it is successful or not is not the exercise for me. It is not up to me. It is out of my hands now. I am not going to in two years have hindsight and say I made a big mistake.More [11/12/2006 12:11:00]

Patrick Bateman: I live in the American Gardens Building on W. 81st Street on the 11th floor. My name is Patrick Bateman. I'm 27 years old. I believe in taking care of myself and a balanced diet and rigorous exercise routine. In the morning if my face is a little puffy I'll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches. I can do 1000 now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial mask which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.More [04/23/2007 12:04:00]
[Helen hands the kids two masks]
Helen: Put these on. Your identity is your most valuable possession. Protect it. And if anything goes wrong, use your powers.
Violet: But you said never to use...
Helen: I know what I said!
[sighing]
Helen: Remember the bad guys on the shows you used to watch on Saturday mornings? Well, these guys aren't like those guys. They won't exercise restraint because you are children. They *will* kill you if they get the chance. Do *not* give them that chance.More [05/08/2007 12:05:00]
Coulmier: It's not even a proper novel. It's nothing but an encyclopedia of perversions. Frankly, it even fails as an exercise in craft. The characters are wooden, the diologue is inane. Not to mention the repetition of words like "nipple" and "pikestaff".
Marquis de Sade: There I was taxed; it's true.
Coulmier: And such puny scope. Nothing but the worst in man's nature.
Marquis de Sade: I write of the great, eternal truths that bind together all mankind. The whole world over, we eat, we shit, we fuck, we kill and we die.
Coulmier: But we also fall in love, we build cities, we compose symphonies, and we endure. Why not put that in your books as well.More [05/29/2007 12:05:00]
EPA can exercise its supervisory power to block a facility’s construction, … As EPA found, the Alaska department’s own records showed there was scant, if any, evidentiary basis for choosing less stringent emission-reduction technology.More [07/02/2007 12:07:00]
