duties

The Revolution was effected before the War commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments of their duties and obligations. This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people, was the real American Revolution.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The modern state no longer has anything but rights; it does not recognize duties any more.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Men are to be guided only by their self-interests. Good government is a good balancing of these; and, except a keen eye and appetite for self-interest, requires no virtue in any quarter. To both parties it is emphatically a machine: to the discontented, a taxing-machine; to the contented, a machine for securing property. Its duties and its faults are not those of a father, but of an active parish-constable.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every human being has a work to carry on within, duties to perform abroad, influence to exert, which are peculiarly his, and which no conscience but his own can teach.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Innocent amusements are such as excite moderately, and such as produce a cheerful frame of mind, not boisterous mirth; such as refresh, instead of exhausting, the system; such as recur frequently, rather than continue long; such as send us back to our daily duties invigorated in body and spirit; such as we can partake of in the presence and society of respectable friends; such as consist with and are favorable to a grateful piety; such as are chastened by self-respect, and are accompanied with the consciousness that life has a higher end than to be amused.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The nearer society approaches to divine order, the less separation will there be in the characters, duties, and pursuits of men and women. Women will not become less gentle and graceful, but men will become more so. Women will not neglect the care and education of their children, but men will find themselves ennobled and refined by sharing those duties with them; and will receive, in return, co-operation and sympathy in the discharge of various other duties, now deemed inappropriate to women. The more women become rational companions, partners in business and in thought, as well as in affection and amusement, the more highly will men appreciate home.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We should not be so taken up in the search for truth, as to neglect the needful duties of active life; for it is only action that gives a true value and commendation to virtue.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nothing is as real as a dream. The world can change around you, but your dream will not. Responsibilities need not erase it. Duties need not obscure it. Because the dream is within you, no one can take it away.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

I have found it impossible to carry the heavy burden of responsibility and to discharge my duties as King as I would wish to do without the help and support of the woman I love. I now quit altogether public affairs, and I lay down my burden.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Certainly one of the highest duties of the citizen is a scrupulous obedience to the laws of the nation. But it is not the highest duty.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The power confided in me will be used to hold, occupy and possess the property and places belonging to the government, and to collect the duties and imposts.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The Family is the Country of the heart. There is an angel in the Family who, by the mysterious influence of grace, of sweetness, and of love, renders the fulfillment of duties less wearisome, sorrows less bitter. The only pure joys unmixed with sadness which it is given to man to taste upon earth are, thanks to this angel, the joys of the Family.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Willful sterility is, from the standpoint of the nation, from the standpoint of the human race, the one sin for which the penalty is national death, race death; a sin for which there is no atonement. No man, no woman, can shirk the primary duties of life, whether for love of ease and pleasure, or for any other cause, and retain his or her self-respect.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Neither praise or blame is the object of true criticism. Justly to discriminate, firmly to establish, wisely to prescribe, and honestly to award. These are the true aims and duties of criticism.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When we can say no not only to things that are wrong and sinful, but also to things pleasant, profitable, and good which would hinder and clog our grand duties and our chief work, we shall understand more fully what life is worth, and how to make the most of it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There will never be a really free and enlightened State until the State comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its own power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly. I please myself with imagining a State at last which can afford to be just to all men, and to treat the individual with respect as a neighbor; which even would not think it inconsistent with its own repose if a few went to live aloof from it, not meddling with it, nor embraced by it, who fulfilled all the duties of neighbors and fellow-men. A State which bore this kind of fruit, and suffered it to drop off as fast as it ripened, would prepare the way for a still more perfect and glorious State, which also I have imagined, but not yet anywhere seen.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If property had simply pleasures, we could stand it; but its duties make it unbearable. In the interest of the rich we must get rid of it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nancy Kendricks: We're totally screwed, right?
Alex Rose: I would say screwed is apt.
Nancy Kendricks: Do you think that Jean would ever give you a second chance?
Alex Rose: No. It's over. Besides, how could I have time to rewrite my novel and still do my faithful servant duty to her as her little indentured servant person. Her little butt boy. I got a lot of duties honey. She might need me to go out and count grapes with her or go help her fix her heater or go take her to the laundry or I gotta go help her clean her banana skins and I gotta go help her clean out her garbage and I gotta go help her fiddle her monthlies out or go and wipe her ass! God forbid she should have any shit hanging off her ass!
Nancy Kendricks: Alex.
Alex Rose: No, really. Cause then I gotta run up there double time like a little bunny and I gotta go up there with my little tissue and I gotta go wipe her little ass and then I gotta go, "Oh, good for you Mrs. Connelly. Good for you for having such a nice little poopy. Oh, what's that? You got some poopy on your dipy? Oh, then, let me go clean it off with my tongue!" I mean enough is enough!More [08/09/2007 12:08:00]

Cpl. Barnes: Yes, sir.
Capt. Ross: You've read it?
Cpl. Barnes: Yes, sir.
Capt. Ross: Good. Would you open it up to the chapter that deals with code reds, please?
Cpl. Barnes: Sir?
Capt. Ross: Just flip open to the page of the book that talks about code reds.
Cpl. Barnes: Well, sir code red is a term that we use, I mean, just down at Gitmo, I really don't think that...
Capt. Ross: Ah, we're in luck then. Standard Operating Procedures, Rifle Security Company, Guantanamo Bay Cuba. Now I assume we'll find the term code red and its definition in that book. Am I right?
Cpl. Barnes: No sir.
Capt. Ross: Coporal Barnes, I'm a Marine. Is there no book. No pamphlet or manual, no regulation or set of written orders or instructions that lets me know that, as a Marine, one of my duties is to perform code reds?
Cpl. Barnes: No sir. No book, sir.
Capt. Ross: No further questions.
[as Ross walks back to his table Kaffey takes the book out of his hand]
Kaffee: Corporal would you open this book up to the part that says that where the mess hall is.
Cpl. Barnes: Well, Lt Kaffey, that's not in the book either, sir.
Kaffee: You mean to say the entire time you've been at Gitmo you've never had a meal?
Cpl. Barnes: No, sir. Three squares a day, sir.
Kaffee: Well, I don't understand. How did you know where the mess hall was if it wasn't in this book?
Cpl. Barnes: I guess I just followed the crowd at chow time, sir.
Kaffee: Thanks. No more questions.More [11/05/2007 12:11:00]
Hannibal Lecter: [to a photo of his parents] Father, mother. I'm the youngest student they've ever admitted into medical school. It's a work scholarship. I think you would be pleased. Death duties on my uncle's estate has finally forced the sale of the château. Lady Murasaki will leave for Paris with me now that her residency is under threat. This work scholarship means I must spend much of my spare time preparing bodies for the anatomy class. My studies are fascinating and absorb me completely.

X: After I came back, I asked myself, why was I, the chief special officer, selected to travel to the South Pole at that time that any number of others could have done? And I wondered if it was because one of my routine duties if I had been in Washington would have been to arrange for additional security in Texas, so I decided to check it out. And sure enough, someone had told the 112th Military Intelligence Group at Fourth Army Headquarters at Fort Sam Houston in Texas to stand down that day, over the protests of the Unit Commander, Colonal Rike. This is significant because it is standard operating procedure, especially in a lnown hostile city like Dallas.More [05/05/2008 12:05:00]
A powerful attraction exists, therefore, to the promotion of a study and of duties of all others engrossing the time most completely, and which is less benefited than most others by any acquaintance with science.More [09/22/2008 12:09:00]

Capt. Geoffrey Thorpe:
Men, from now on both crews will lay aside past differences. Spanish sailors will have full freedom of the decks... with the exception of the powder magazine.


[his crew laughs]



Capt. Geoffrey Thorpe:
Those of you lately called slaves will have no further duties aboard this ship.


[they cheer]



Capt. Geoffrey Thorpe:

Ralph:
[to Alice] Let's get one thing straight right now, right here and now: a man's home is just like his ship. And I am the captain of this ship, that's what I am, you understand. You're nothing but a lowly, third-class seaman. That's all you are. Your duties are to get the mess, swab the deck and see that the captain feels good. That's all you have to do. Remember, I'm the captain and you're just a third-class seaman.


[He notices that Alice is leaving and he stops her]



Ralph:

[Sister Angela walks up next to Allison as he stares at the waves on the shoreline; beat] Hello, Ma'am.



Sister Angela:
Good morning, Mr. Allison.



Cpl. Allison, USMC:
I must've been off my rocker last night. A marine oughtn't to get married. His duties are with the family or the corps. One of 'em's gotta get the short end. In the service, they'd ask us, 'what's better? A bad husband, or a bad marine. Well, he ends up *both*. Do me a favor, huh, ma'am? Just... just forget I opened my big mouth.



Sister Angela:
[walking away] ... certainly, Mr. Allison.

Emperor Akbar:
Salim, you must change, you must!

Pollyanna, I think we should talk about you and your position in this community. Do you know why it's called Harrington Town?

Mother told me it was named after my grandfather.



Aunt Polly Harrington:
That's right. And everyone in this town looks to us to set a good example. In how we conduct ourselves, in our duties and manners, in what we think and even what we say.


[Angelica rolls her eyes in disgust]



Aunt Polly Harrington:
So we must alwys try to be good examples to everyone in everything we do. Is that clear?



Pollyanna Whittier:
Yes, Aunt Polly.



Aunt Polly Harrington:
Just remember our family position and conduct yourself properly. And modestly.



Pollyanna Whittier:
Oh, you mean before? I understand that now. I'll never say that again!



Aunt Polly Harrington:

Patton:
[apologizing to his troops after the "slapping" incident] I assure you I meant neither harm nor malice to the soldier in question. My sole intention was to restore in him some sense of appreciation for his duties as a man and a soldier. "If one could shame a coward," I felt, "one might help him to gain his self-respect." This was on my mind. Now, I freely admit my method was wrong. But I hope you can understand my motive, and accept this... apology.

Howard Simons:
Did you call the White House press office?



Bob Woodward:
I went over there; I talked to them. They said Hunt hadn't worked there for three months. Then a PR guy said this weird thing to me. He said, "I am convinced that neither Mr. Colson nor anyone else at the White House had any knowledge of, or participation in, this deplorable incident at the Democratic National Committee."



Howard Simons:
Isn't that what you expect them to say?



Bob Woodward:
Absolutely.



Howard Simons:
So?



Bob Woodward:
I never asked about Watergate. I simply asked what were Hunt's duties at the White House.

Joe Miller:
The Federal Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibits discrimination against otherwise qualified handicapped persons who are able to perform the duties required by their employment. Although the ruling did not address the specific issue of HIV and AIDS discrimination...



Andrew Beckett:
Subsequent decisions have held that AIDS is protected as a handicap under law, not only because of the physical limitations it imposes, but because the prejudice surrounding AIDS exacts a social death which precede... which precedes the physical one.



Joe Miller:
This is the essence of discrimination: formulating opinions about others not based on their individual merits, but rather on their membership in a group with assumed characteristics.

I know. She's heading an expedition to China shortly. I'm to go as her servant. But only on the understanding that I am to be very badly treated.

Swabbing, I imagine.

To patrol the Ivory Coast for slave ships.



Baldwin:
Because?



Captain Fitzgerald:
Because slavery is banned in British law, sir.

Yet the abduction of freemen from the British Protectorate of Sierra Leone and their illegal transportation to the New World, as described by Cinque, is not unheard of, is it?



Captain Fitzgerald:
Not even unusual, regrettably.

Commander Tucker:
Computer, begin recording. Dear Mr. and Mrs. Taylor, by the time you get this, Starfleet will have already told you about Jane. Since I worked so closely with her, I wanted to add my personal condolences. I have to admit, I've been putting off writing this for a while. I convinced myself that my duties on Enterprise took precedence. But the truth is I didn't want to face the fact that someone so young with so much promise could just be gone. But I'm facing it now. And I find myself thinking how important she was to me. She was a great engineer. And she was my friend. She won't be forgotten.
