appearance

Any smoothly functioning technology will have the appearance of magic.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A bureaucracy is sure to think that its duty is to augment official power, official business, or official members, rather than to leave free the energies of mankind; it overdoes the quantity of government, as well as impairs its quality. The truth is, that a skilled bureaucracy is, though it boasts of an appearance of science, quite inconsistent with the true principles of the art of business.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The non permanent appearance of happiness and distress, and their disappearance in due course, are like the appearance and disappearance of summer and winter seasons.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Grace is always natural, though that does not prevent its being often used to hide a lie. The rude shocks and uncomfortably constraining influences of life disappear among graceful women and poetical men; they are the most deceptive beings in creation; distrust and doubt cannot stand before them; they create what they imagine; if they do not lie to others, they do to their own hearts; for illusion is their element, fiction their vocation, and pleasures in appearance their happiness. Beware of grace in woman, and poetry in man -- weapons the more dangerous because the least dreaded!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every fact is related on one side to sensation, and, on the other, to morals. The game of thought is, on the appearance of one of these two sides, to find the other; given the upper, to find the under side.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The present age prefers the sign to the thing signified, the copy to the original, fancy to reality, the appearance to the essence for in these days illusion only is sacred, truth profane.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The highest problem of any art is to cause by appearance the illusion of a higher reality.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Where ambition can cover its enterprises, even to the person himself, under the appearance of principle, it is the most incurable and inflexible of passions.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Commerce is one of the daughters of Fortune, inconsistent and deceitful as her mother. she chooses her residence where she is least expected, and shifts her home when in appearance she seems firmly settled.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The moment of truth, the sudden emergence of a new insight, is an act of intuition. Such intuitions give the appearance of miraculous flushes, or short-circuits of reasoning. In fact they may be likened to an immersed chain, of which only the beginning and the end are visible above the surface of consciousness. The diver vanishes at one end of the chain and comes up at the other end, guided by invisible links.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
However muted its present appearance may be, sexual dominion obtains nevertheless as perhaps the most pervasive ideology of our culture and provides its most fundamental concept of power.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is impossible for a stranger traveling through the United States to tell from the appearance of the people or the country whether he is in Toledo, Ohio, or Portland, Oregon. Ninety million Americans cut their hair in the same way, eat each morning exactly the same breakfast, tie up the small girls curls with precisely the same kind of ribbon fashioned into bows exactly alike; and in every way all try to look and act as much like all the others as they can.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Neglect of appearance becomes men.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
First appearance deceives many.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Things are not always what they seem; the first appearance deceives many; the intelligence of a few perceives what has been carefully hidden.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Be not deceived with the first appearance of things, for show is not substance.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I think I am one of those who can manage not to take on a completely different appearance under their own glance.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The discovery of truth is prevented more effectively, not by the false appearance things present and which mislead into error, not directly by weakness of the reasoning powers, but by preconceived opinion, by prejudice.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Most of the appearance of mirth in the world is not mirth, it is art. The wounded spirit is not seen, but walks under a disguise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No one is so miserable as the poor person who maintains the appearance of wealth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The complaint about modern steel furniture, modern glass houses, modern red bars and modern streamlined trains and cars is that all these objets modernize, while adequate and amusing in themselves, tend to make the people who use them look dated. It is an honest criticism. The human race has done nothing much about changing its own appearance to conform to the form and texture of its appurtenances.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is only in appearance that time is a river. It is a vast landscape and it is the eye of the beholder that moves.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Stanley Motss: We're not gonna have a war, we're gonna have the appearance of a war.More [11/22/2005 12:11:00]
In this arc we see the appearance of Ultimate Namor for the first time! And, we learn how truly dissimilar he is to the mainstream Sub-Mariner. We'll be digging deep into the mythology of the Ultimate Universe here.More [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
I guess the attention paid to appearance is something that belongs to tennis, too.More [11/15/2006 12:11:00]
Boss Tweed: The appearance of law must be upheld, especially when it's being broken.More [04/03/2007 12:04:00]
Longshanks: [Discussing with his advisors on what to do about the Scottish rebellion] Who shall I sent to negotiate with this Wallace? Not my gentle son, his appearance would only encourage an enemy to take over the entire country.More [04/08/2007 12:04:00]
Spenser: So the killing might be connected to the play, so I need someone to... tell me what the play was about.
Lou Montana: Ahem. Lou Montana. I directed. And, uh, your question is absurd.
Spenser: No; an actor getting shot on stage wearing tights while singing "Land of Love" is absurd.
Lou Montana: Ah. And what was your response to the play?
Spenser: I found it a pretentious mishmash about appearance and reality.
Lou Montana: Well, art isn't "about"
[makes air quotes]
Lou Montana: anything. It *is* movement and speech in space and time.
Spenser: Thank you!
Lou Montana: I didn't expect you'd understand.
Spenser: Me either.More [05/16/2007 12:05:00]
Merovingian: What is the reason? Soon the why and the reason are gone and all that matters is the feeling. This is the nature of the universe. We struggle against it, we fight to deny it; but it is of course a lie. Beneath our poised appearance we are completely out of control.More [07/13/2007 12:07:00]
Doolittle: [after Loretta's first appearance on the Opry] What we got to do next is; figure out what to do next.More [07/25/2007 12:07:00]

Elvira: It's OK. My appearance is kind of a shock to everybody.More [10/10/2007 12:10:00]
Capt. Ross: Your honor, it's become obvious that Lt. Kaffee's intention this afternoon are to smear a high ranking Marine officer in the desperate hope that the mere appearance of impropriety will win him points with the court members. Now, it is my recommendation, sir, that Lt. Kaffee be reprimanded for his conduct and that this witness be excused with the court's deepest apologies.
Judge Randolph: Overruled.
Capt. Ross: Your honor...
Judge Randolph: Your objection is noted.More [11/05/2007 12:11:00]
[about the Apostle Paul and the gap between Christ's death in circa 33 A.D. and the appearance of the Gospel of Mark, which was written in or after 70 A.D]
Narrator: Paul wrote lots of letters about Christianity. In fact, he wrote eighty thousand words about the Christian religion. These documents represent almost all we have of the history of Christianity during this decades-long gap. And here's the interesting thing. If Jesus was a human who had recently lived, nobody told Paul. Paul never heard of Mary, Joseph, Bethlehem, Herod, John the Baptist. He never heard about any of these miracles. He never quotes anything that Jesus is supposed to have said. He never mentions Jesus having a ministry of any kind at all. He doesn't know about any entrance into Jerusalem, he never mentions Pontius Pilate or a Jewish mob or any trials at all. Paul doesn't know any of what we would call the story of Jesus, except for these last three events. And even these, Paul never places on Earth. Just like the other savior gods of the time, Paul's Christ Jesus died, rose, and ascended all in a mythical realm. Paul doesn't believe that Jesus was ever a human being. He's not even aware of the idea. And he's the link between the time-frame given for the life of Jesus and the appearance of the first Gospel account of that life.More [12/26/2007 12:12:00]
Phyllis: I don't think it's going to help our lawsuit if you continue to st... if you present the appearance of stalking him.

[Madame DeFarge has come looking for Lucie and the child. Miss Pross bars her way out]



Miss Pross:
Oh no you don't!



Madame Defarge:
Let me pass.



Miss Pross:
Never! I know what you want. I know what you're after. And thank heaven I'm put here to stop you - for stop you I will!



Madame Defarge:
In the name of the Republic...



Miss Pross:
In the name of no one, you evil woman. You've killed many innocent people. No doubt you'll kill many more; but my ladybird you shall never touch.



Madame Defarge:
No? Do you know who I am?



Miss Pross:
You might - from your appearance - be the wife of Lucifer; yet you shall not get the better of me. I'm an Englishwoman! I'm your match!



Madame Defarge:
Pig, get out of my way or I'll break you in pieces.



Miss Pross:
Break away, then. I don't care an English tuppence for myself; but I know that the longer I keep you here... the greater hope there is for my ladybird.

Sidney Brand:
I've often wondered how you change from one person into another.



Capt. Mephisto:
No doubt you have. I'll tell you this much. The appearance of human beings' stature, complexion and pigmentation is controlled by the molecular arrangement of the blood corpuscles. I have found a means of altering that arrangment.



Sidney Brand:
I understand.



Capt. Mephisto:
If I thought you really did, I'd *kill* you!

Anthony Keane, Counsel for the Defense:
Does the name of Margaret Wells convey anything to you?



Andre Latour, Paradine's Valet:
[hesitating] Yes, sir.



Anthony Keane, Counsel for the Defense:
What does that name convey to you?


[Latour doesn't respond]



Anthony Keane, Counsel for the Defense:
Well, I must try to help your memory. I put it to you that some years ago you were engaged to Margaret Wells of Three Rivers, Quebec; that on your wedding day she left you at the church door and went off with a saddler named Richard Truton.



Andre Latour, Paradine's Valet:
That is finished! That is in the past!



Judge Lord Thomas Horfield:
Your question may be relevant, Mr Keane; its relevance escapes me.



Anthony Keane, Counsel for the Defense:
M'lord, I submit that the witness has shown, in his evidence and also in his behavior, an almost pathological bias against, not only my client, but against all women.



Judge Lord Thomas Horfield:
I may be stupid, but I fail to understand what this jilting has to do with the case; after seeing the witness and observing his appearance and bearing, I should be inclined to regard the young lady's conduct as pathological, not his.

Addison DeWitt:
[voiceover] Margo Channing is a star of the theater. She made her first stage appearance at the age of four in Midsummer Night's Dream. She played a fairy and entered, quite unexpectedly, stark naked. She has been a star ever since. Margo is a great star, a true star. She never was or will be anything less or anything else.

Rudolf Rassendyll:
Well I think everything went off very well don't you? For a coronation. I mean, that is, not that a coronation shouldn't go well. Provided the king puts in an appearance suitably dressed and suitably rehearsed.



Princess Flavia:

Rudolf Rassendyll:
And suitably sober! Yes, I was hoping you would notice that.

Trapper John:
Well, what's the matter with her today?



Hawkeye Pierce:
I don't know, I think it's one of those ladies' things.



Trapper John:
It's not like her to act like this. She's a bitch, look at my new flannel coat. She's going to have a nervous breakdown.



Hawkeye Pierce:
She can't even get out of the door, look.


[Hawkeye sits down with Frank]



Hawkeye Pierce:
Morning, Frank. Heard from your wife? A bunch of the boys asked me to, uh, ask you, Frank, what Hot Lips was like in the sack. You know, was she...



Frank Burns:
Mind your own business.



Hawkeye Pierce:
No Frank, you know, is she better than self-abuse? Does that- does that big ass of hers move around a lot, Frank or does it sort of lie there flaccid? What would you say about that?



Duke Forrest:
What's Going on over there, is he getting pointers or something?



Trapper John:
Oh no, Hawkeye's trying to get him on an appearance tour.



Duke Forrest:
Ohhhh, is that a fact?



Hawkeye Pierce:
Would you say that she was a moaner, Frank? Seriously Frank. I mean, does she go "ooooh" or does she lie there quiet and not do anything at all?



Frank Burns:
Keep your filthy mouth to yourself.



Hawkeye Pierce:
Or does she go "uh-uh-uh"?



Frank Burns:
[Frank leaps over the table and attacks Hawkeye]



Hawkeye Pierce:
Get him off me! I've got glasses. Get him off me!



Duke Forrest:
What's going on, Frank? That lesson one?



Hawkeye Pierce:
Frank Burns has gone nuts! I'm wearing glasses, for God's sake.



Trapper John:
Watch out for your goodies, Hawkeye. That man is a sex maniac; I don't think Hot Lips satisfied him. Don't let him kiss you, Hawkeye.

Lennora Josephine 'Lenny' Magrath:
They're in the sack.



Chick Boyle:
Now daddy has called twice already. He says we gotta get ourselves to town to help out with this thing with Babe before they change their simple minds.



Lennora Josephine 'Lenny' Magrath:
I was sorta hoping' that Meg would call. I sent her a telegram about Babe.



Chick Boyle:
A telegram? Couldn't you just phone her up or something?



Lennora Josephine 'Lenny' Magrath:
No, I couldn't because her phone was out of order.



Chick Boyle:
Out of order?



Lennora Josephine 'Lenny' Magrath:
That's right. It was disconnected. I don't know...



Chick Boyle:
Now that sounds just like Meg. What all did you say to her in this telegram?



Lennora Josephine 'Lenny' Magrath:
Well, I just told her to come on home.



Chick Boyle:
To come on home? Lennie, have you lost your only mind or what? Babe is gonna be incurring mighty negative publicity in this town and Meg's appearance isn't gonna help things out one bit.


[indicating the pantyhose]



Chick Boyle:
These are awful snug. Did you get my right size?



Lennora Josephine 'Lenny' Magrath:
Well let's see, I think they're... size extra petite.

Well they are scrimping on the nylon material. Anyway, Meg is known all over Copiah County as cheap Christmas trash. Why the whole town knows about her sordid dealings with Doc Porter and leaving him a cripple.

Mankind, you are an ignorant race. How foolish it is to believe your kind rules the Earth. Know now that your are not alone, there are unseen worlds that exist parallel to yours. These are the worlds of the Makai, a race of demons. And the Jujinkai, those that are half-man and half-beast. There is an ancient legend, a prophecy fortelling the appearance of a super being every three thousand years. He is called the Chojin! A god above all gods, the Overfiend! The Chojin will appear through the body of a human and with his great power he will unite the three worlds. He will create a new world, a world of peace and harmony. His time has now come!

Stephen Colbert:

Eric's Brother:
Go Jack! Go get them!



Jack:
I got it, Eric, I'm cool... As we come to the end of our school years, we find ourselves remembering the good times, and trying to forget the bad ties. And as we start to look ahead, we start to worry. We think "What am I going to do? Where am I going to be in ten years?" But I say to you, "Hey, look at me!" Please, don't worry so much. Because when you get right down to it, none of us have very long on this earth. Life is fleeting, like a shooting star in the sky. Whenever you see a shooting star light up the sky with its brilliance, think of me, and try to make each and every moment of our lives as spectacular as possible. I know I did. I made it, Mom. I'm a grown-up.
