Education is not a discipline at all. Half vocational, half an emptiness dressed up in garments borrowed from philosophy, psychology, literature.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No man or woman has achieved an effective personality who is not self-disciplined. Such discipline must not be an end in itself, but must be directed to the development of resolute Christian character.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The boss must first distinguish between action information and status information. He must discipline himself not to act on problems his managers can solve, and never to act on problems when he is explicitly reviewing status. I once knew a boss who invariably picked up the phone to give orders before the end of the first paragraph in a status report. That response is guaranteed to squelch full disclosure.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

So far as discipline is concerned, freedom means not its absence but the use of higher and more rational forms as contrasted with those that are lower or less rational.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. It may not be difficult to store up in the mind a vast quantity of face within a comparatively short time, but the ability to form judgments requires the severe discipline of hard work and the tempering heat of experience and maturity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The manager with the in basket problem does not yet understand that he must discipline himself to take care of activities that fail to excite him.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I tell you, sir, the only safeguard of order and discipline in the modern world is a standardized worker with interchangeable parts. That would solve the entire problem of management.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If the factory people outside the colleges live under the discipline of narrow means, the people inside live under almost every other kind of discipline except that of narrow means -- from the fruity austerities of learning, through the iron rations of English gentlemanhood, down to the modest disadvantages of occupying cold stone buildings without central heating and having to cross two or three quadrangles to take a bath.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The discipline of desire is the background of character.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The institution of marriage in all societies is a pattern within which the strains put by civilization on males and females alike must be resolved, a pattern within which men must learn, in return for a variety of elaborate rewards, new forms in which sexual spontaneity is still possible, and women must learn to discipline their receptivity to a thousand other considerations.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The cycle of the machine is now coming to an end. Man has learned much in the hard discipline and the shrewd, unflinching grasp of practical possibilities that the machine has provided in the last three centuries: but we can no more continue to live in the world of the machine than we could live successfully on the barren surface of the moon.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The bigger the real-life problems, the greater the tendency for the discipline to retreat into a reassuring fantasy-land of abstract theory and technical manipulation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

It is excellent discipline for an author to feel that he must say all that he has to say in the fewest possible words, or his readers is sure to skip them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Practical wisdom is only to be learned in the school of experience. Precepts and instruction are useful so far as they go, but, without the discipline of real life, they remain of the nature of theory only.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The discipline of the written word punishes both stupidity and dishonesty.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

[Evan tells Kayleigh to cover her ears]
Evan at 7: What time is it?
Mr. George Miller: It's time for you to do what I tell you to do...
Evan at 7: Wrong answer fuck bag. This is the very moment of your reckoning. In the next 30 seconds you're gonna open 1 of 2 doors. The first door will forever traumatize your own flesh and blood.
Mr. George Miller: What's happening, how are you doing this?
Evan at 7: It'll change your daughter from a beautiful child into an empty shell. Whos' only concept of trust was betrayed by her own sick pedophile father. Ultimately... it'll lead to her suicide. Nice Work Daddy.
Mr. George Miller: Who are you?
Evan at 7: Let's just say you're being closely watched, George. Your other option is... to treat Kayleigh like, say like a loving father treats his daughter. Sound okay to you, Papa?
Mr. George Miller: Yes.
Evan at 7: Listen close then fuckbag. You screw this up again - I'll flat-out castrate you. What you need to do, is discipline your son Tommy cause the kid is one sadistic pup. One last thing...
[Evan whispers something in Kayleigh's ear]
Kayleigh at 7: [yelling at her father] Don't ever touch me again!
Mr. George Miller: I won't.More [08/20/2005 12:08:00]
Rex: At Rex Kwan Do, we use the buddy system. No more flying solo. You need somebody watching your back at all times. Second off, you're gonna learn to discipline your image. You think I got where I am today because I dressed like Peter Pan over here?
[points to Kip]
Rex: Take a look at what I'm wearing, people. You think anybody wants a roundhouse kick to the face while I'm wearing these bad boys? Forget about it. Last off, my students will learn about self respect. You think anybody thinks I'm a failure because I go home to Starla at night? Forget about it!More [08/31/2005 12:08:00]

When I doing dinner theater in high school, I was talking to a woman who had been in the business for a while and I said I want to act, that's all I want to do with my life and she said if you're serious then you need to hone every discipline you can.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
It takes great technique, tremendous discipline and energy and practice, and damn few are capable. Art is confidence. Technique makes it possible to achieve artistic greatness, but doesn't guarantee it. The great piano artists are not the ones who are best playing Clementi exercises.More [05/03/2006 12:05:00]
For a long time, I had lower back problems, so I can't do the roundhouse comfortably like I used to, but I practice the discipline of mind with karate as much as I can.More [05/08/2006 12:05:00]
You learn more discipline in the theatre than you do in movies or TV. You're on stage every night and you have to sustain your energy level tor several hours.More [06/24/2006 12:06:00]
“I'm managing a physical situation. It taught me great discipline and an awareness of what I can expect from myself.”More [07/03/2006 12:07:00]
“That's certainly what I grew up with-ballet and musical comedy. My mother taught ballroom dancing and, I think, would have liked to have been a dancer herself. So she pushed me a lot when I was very young, but I loved it. All I really wanted to be was a dancer. There's a discipline in dance that you don't get anywhere else.”More [08/15/2006 12:08:00]
“There are probably going to be many teams and many players who are going to try and wind Wayne Rooney up. He can handle it. Everyone knows he's a great talent. It's been well documented about his discipline but I don't think there's going to be a problem.”More [11/13/2006 12:11:00]
“There is a certain combination of anarchy and discipline in the way I work.”More [12/01/2006 12:12:00]
Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen: Smile, Sheriff. After all, this *is* a party!
Marshall Strickland: The only party I'll be smilin' at is the one that sees you at the end of a rope.
Strickland's Deputy: Have fun.
[Buford and his gang head toward the town festival]
Marshall Strickland: [turns to his son] See, that's how you handle them, son. Never give 'em an inch, and maintain discipline at all times. Remember that word - "discipline."
Marshal Strickland's son: I will, Pa.
[the Marshall pats his son on the leg]More [02/28/2007 12:02:00]
The Wizard: He did not care any more... life and death... the same. Only that the crowd would be there to greet him with howls of lust and fury. He began to realize his sense of worth... he mattered. In time, his victories could not easily be counted... he was taken to the east, a great prize, where the war masters would teach him the deepest secrets. Language and writing were also made available, the poetry of Khitai, the philosophy of Sung; and he also came to know the pleasures of women, when he was bred to the finest stock. But, always, there remained the discipline of steel.More [07/12/2007 12:07:00]
Kaffee: [Kaffee is questioning Kendrick about Dawson's refusal to discipline PFC Curtis Bell, which led to his bad pro-con report rating] Lt. Kendrick, was Lance Corporal Dauson given a below average rating on this last report because you learned he had been sneaking food to Private Bell?
Capt. Ross: Object!
Judge Randolph: Not so fast. Leutenant?
Lt. Kendrick: Lance Corporal Dawson was given a below average rating because he had committed a crime.
Kaffee: A crime? What crime did he commit? Leutenant? Dawson brought a hungry guy some food... what crime did he commit?
Lt. Kendrick: He disobeyed an order!
Kaffee: And because he did. Because he exercised his own set of values. Because he made a decision about the welfare of another Marine which was in conflict with an order of yours he was punished. Isn't that right.
Lt. Kendrick: Lance Corporal Dawson disobeyed an order!
Kaffee: Yeah, but it wasn't a real order, was it? I mean it's peace time. He wasn't being asked to secure a hill or advance on a beach head. Surely a Marine of Dawson's intelligence can be trusted to determine, on his own, which are the really important orders and which orders might, say, be morally questionable? Leutenant? Can he? Can Dawson determine on his own which orders he's going to follow?
Lt. Kendrick: No, he cannot.
Kaffee: A lesson he learned after the Curtis Bell incident, am I right?
Lt. Kendrick: I would think so.
Kaffee: You know so don't you, Leutenant.
Capt. Ross: Object!
Judge Randolph: Sustained.
Kaffee: Leutenant Kendrick, one final question. If you had order Dawson to give Santiago a code red...
Lt. Kendrick: [Interrupting] I specifically ordered those men not...
Lt. Kendrick: ...would it be reasonalble to think he would have disobeyed you again?
Capt. Ross: Leutenant, don't answer that question!
Kaffee: You don't have to, I'm through.
Capt. Ross: Leutenant Kendrick, did you order Lance Corporal Dawson and Private Downey to give Willie Santiago a code red? Leutenant, did you...
Lt. Kendrick: No, I did not!More [11/05/2007 12:11:00]
Beneath all differences of doctrine or discipline there exists a fundamental agreement as to the simple, absolute essentials in religion.More [02/07/2008 12:02:00]

Sergeant Webster: Highway, I heard you was back.
Highway: Webster.
Sergeant Webster: These retards couldn't fight their way out of a shit house.
Highway: That where you been keeping yourself lately?
Highway: Major Powers and me are building an elite company of fightin' men.
Highway: Webster, the only thing you could build is a good case of hemmorhoids.
[taps Fragatti on the head]
Lance Corporal Fragatti: What? What?
Highway: Well, you're blowing away all of your ammunition, Fag-eddy. Miss I ain't America's gonna make Swiss cheese out of you.
Lance Corporal Fragatti: It'snot my fuckin' fault, man. The fuckin' weapon's fuckin' fucked up.
Highway: [takes rifle and fires at target] There's nothing wrong with that rifle. Keep it tight.
[moves down to Jones]
Highway: You wake up this morning with a piss pot on your head?
Corporal 'Stitch' Jones: Uh, no, Gunny, I wore this in your honor.
Highway: Is that right?
Corporal 'Stitch' Jones: Yeah, you know, Sands of Iwo Jima, Pork Chop Hill, Kason, all that old antique shit. Sort of a tribute to an aging veteran close to retirement such as yourself.
Highway: Well, I'm touched.
Corporal 'Stitch' Jones: Yeah, you know, sort of a recon way of saying welcome and ineveitably, goodbye.
Highway: And the kevlar helmet you were issued, that didn't by chance find it's way into one of the local pawn shops in town now did it?
Corporal 'Stitch' Jones: Hey, hey, yo, that's a serious implication, Gunny. You know, we're financially responsible for these bad boys.
Highway: That's right, you are, that's why I want to see kevlar on your head by 1900 hours or you won't have a head to put it on.
Corporal 'Stitch' Jones: Yes, sir, Gunny Highway Sergeant, sir!
Profile: Hey, Gunny. My weapon's jammed!
[stands and the rifle goes off]
Sergeant Webster: [as the platoon is marching back] Major Powers' gonna teach you how to discipline your men.
Highway: Webster, if Powers ever comes to a sudden stop your face is gonna go half way up his ass.
Lance Corporal Fragatti: Profile's never gonna make it back to the barracks.
Corporal 'Stitch' Jones: Powers is cold blooded, man.
Highway: [after Profile falls] Come on, Profile. You can make it. Don't give the prick the satisfaction.More [02/19/2008 12:02:00]
Dr. Ian Malcolm: I'll tell you the problem with the scientific power that you're using here: it didn't require any discipline to attain it. You read what others had done and you took the next step. You didn't earn the knowledge for yourselves, so you don't take any responsibility for it. You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could and before you even knew what you had you patented it and packaged it and slapped it on a plastic lunchbox, and now you're selling it, you want to sell it!More [05/17/2008 12:05:00]
Rabbi Jacob "Jake" Schram: Jews want their rabbis to be the kind of Jews they don't have the time to be.
Father Brian Kilkenney Finn: Yeah, and Catholics want their priests to be the kind of Catholics they don't have the discipline to be.More [05/25/2008 12:05:00]
Joe Clark: This is an institution of learning, ladies and gentlemen. If you can't control it, how can you teach? Discipline is not the enemy of enthusiasm!More [07/13/2008 12:07:00]

[seeing Stan and Ollie for the first time]


My, my, and still they come. Let us begin with a perfect understanding. I am just as sorry to see you here as you are to be here. Keep one thing in mind, it all depends on you yourselves just how you're going to fare during your stay here. Never forget that this is a prison, and in a prison, all the rules must be obeyed. Discipline is the one thing that must be observed. If you are good prisoners, everything will be okay. If you're not, if you break the rules, then it will be just plain hell on Earth. Do you understand?

Yes, sir.

[tooth buzzes]

[begins to go ballistic] Wha...!

It was his tooth...

[shouts] Shut up, you! Put them in cell 14!

Prison Guard:
But not in with The Tiger, sir.

[shouts] Put them in Cell 14! Get them out of here before I lose my temper!! Talking to the warden like that! A fine piece business. Convicts talking to the warden.


Why, I'll take those men, I'll break them! I'll put them in Cell 14. I don't care who's in there! What I'll do with them.

Captain William Bligh:
Can you understand this, Mr. Byam? Discipline is the thing. A seaman's a seaman. A captain's a captain. And a midshipman, Sir Joseph or no Sir Joseph, is the lowest form of animal life in the British Navy.

Jim Gordon:
[after Woody joins a sortie against Jim's orders, in a fighter without ammo or a radio, and gets himself shot down] Where do you think you are, with some broken-down flying circus?

Woody Jason:
Aw, it would've been a cinch; I was ridin' the murder-spot right above those Jap bombers! If I had ammo, I'd have blown them clear out of China!

Jim Gordon:
Instead, you wasted a good ship!

Woody Jason:
Hey, you talk like that crate's more important than me.

Jim Gordon:
I can't afford to lose planes OR pilots...

Woody Jason:
It's like I told you earlier, Pappy: All I get out of this is the dough, so you can't blame me for trying. In a skeet match, the guy who knocks down the most pigeons wins the cup.

Jim Gordon:
...I also can't have grand-standers trying to hog the whole show! Results around here are based on co-operation and understanding. Discipline in the air is strict, because that's the only way an outfit like this can operate!

Woody Jason:
...And here I thought it was every man for himself.

Jim Gordon:
Not these days, it isn't. Just wait until the day you look over your shoulder and see a Jap sittin' on your tail, in a ship that you can't out-maneuver! THEN you'll know what I'm talking about.
