John Howard
men demand everything and are not satisfied until sex blinds them into thinking they have got it.

We are still looking for opportunities in plantation, in palm oil. When it is bad, you want to buy because, in the long term, I am confident that plantation is a good bet. To me, it is always in demand; there is no substitute yet for palm oil.
Edwin Soeryadjaya
Kids don’t even know what it means that you have to watch a show on Thursday night at 9 o’clock, on any given network. You just put it on your DVR, or queue it up on your computer, and it’s an on-demand and instant access world.
Joseph McGinty Nichol
Why ask a question whose answer would demand ten more questions?
David Mitchell
I’m fortunate to be able to draw in different styles, but each style demands another approach from the previous.
Ernie Colon
I believe that there is a simple demand and supply rule that works on television. While many are hooked on web series, some enjoy non-fiction. Similarly, there are people who love watching supernatural genre.
Jasmin Bhasin
To be a socialist means to let the ego serve the neighbour, to sacrifice the self for the whole. In its deepest sense socialism equals service. The individual refrains and the commonwealth demands.
Joseph Goebbels
Food banks have told us of the increasing donations of, and demand for, tampons and pads which are gratefully received by women struggling to afford them.
Layla Moran
The kingdom of heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force. Such force demands an equal response, and Jesus is going to make war on everything that hinders love, with his eyes blazing fire.
Lou Engle
My district includes the two urban centers of Charlotte and Fayetteville, as well as large rural areas. Obviously, these diverse segments of North Carolina require different approaches to meeting current and future transportation demands.
Robin Hayes
Selecting your next challenge in life, choose one that is meaningful and will demand your complete concentration.
Brendon Burchard
So great is society’s demand for information that we can no longer say that all the news gathered is worthy of airing. Much of it is not.
Robert Kardashian
The U.S. uses most of its oil for transportation. We can limit U.S. demand for oil by requiring automakers to use the technology that already exists to improve fuel economy – technology that the automakers refuse to bring into the market despite societal demand.
Sherwood Boehlert
The joy of living is his who has the heart to demand it. Life is a great adventure, and I want to say to you, accept it in such a spirit.
Theodore Roosevelt
Politics are, as it were, the market place and the price mechanism of all social demands – though there is no guarantee that a just price will be struck; and there is nothing spontaneous about politics- it depends on deliberate and continuous activity.
Bernard Crick
The use of force is easy to rationalize in terms of basic economics. ‘We should make them PAY for what they’ve done!’ It’s just the law of demand: raise the price of crossing us, and fewer people will cross us. Make the price another Hiroshima, and perhaps the quantity demanded will fall to zero.
Bryan Caplan
Head coach of the England team demands management skills that Brian does not have. We had a head coach who wanted one thing, other coaches who wanted other things. The players hadn’t a clue what was going on. Somehow we’d managed to turn our World Cup campaign into a Monty Python sketch – called The Life of Brian.
Lawrence Dallaglio
The country needs and, unless I mistake its temper, the country demands bold, persistent experimentation .
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Is there any wonder why we are in such big trouble? Any question why the people don’t trust their government anymore, and demand a change?
Chris Christie
A way has to be found to enable everyone to benefit from the fruits of the earth, and not simply to close the gap between the affluent and those who must be satisfied with the crumbs falling from the table, but above all to satisfy the demands of justice, fairness and respect for every human being.
Pope Francis
I haven’t read a lot of science fiction, and I never intend to write it; it seems to happen a little bit inadvertently for me, in that I’m trying to follow people into points in their lives that demand that I investigate the future.
Jennifer Egan
One modest suggestion for my friends in the academic community: the next time a mob of students, waving their non-negotiable demands, starts pitching bricks and rocks at the student union- just imagine they are wearing brown shirts or white sheets- and act accordingly.
Spiro T. Agnew
Although your time and attention are finite, the demands on your time and attention are infinite.
Merlin Mann
Is Christianity fair? It is certainly not fair to God. Christians believe that God sent His Son to die for your sins and mine. Fairness would demand that we die for our own sins.
Andy Stanley
One cannot demand that anybody be a hero, though one can hope for it.
Dwight Macdonald
A person who can laugh and go with life does not demand to be in control, which is why the most controlling people may be sarcastic but lack an authentic sense of humor.
Richard Rohr
I demand from you deeds of mercy which are to arise out of love for me. You are to show mercy to your neighbors always and everywhere. You must not shrink from this or try to excuse yourself from it.
Mary Faustina Kowalska
Parents do not have the courage to say no to certain things that their children demand. They are rather scared of their children.
Shiv Khera
Faith is not a refuge from reality. It is a demand that we face reality … The true subject matter of religion is not our own little souls, but the Eternal God and His whole mysterious purpose, and our solemn responsibility to Him.
Evelyn Underhill
Remember, the essence of storytelling demands that we place our main characters on a path. A quest with something at stake, with something to do, to achieve, to learn, and to change.
Larry Brooks
Why is there still so much pain and suffering being produced when there’s so little demand for it?
Ashleigh Brilliant
Turkey initiated true multiparty elections in 1950 to join NATO. As a requirement of its membership, NATO can and should demand that Turkey honor its commitment to the alliance’s democratic norms.
Fethullah Gulen
You are right in demanding that an artist should take an intelligent attitude to his work, but you confuse two things: solving a problem and stating a problem correctly.
Anton Chekhov
You are the only woman who ever answered the demands of my imagination.
Anais Nin
The thing is, I can teach. I can teach bloody well. So few chefs have that level of generosity. I demand a lot, a f***ing hell of a lot, but I give a lot back.
Gordon Ramsay
The monstrous act by definition demands a monster.
Rick Yancey
To demand the portrait that will be a complete portrait of a person is as futile as to demand that a motion picture be condensed into a single still.
Alfred Stieglitz
The Janus-like nature of innovation – its responsible use and so on – was evident at the very birth of human ingenuity, when humankind first discovered how to make fire on demand.
Craig Venter
Don’t allow the unrealistic demands of others to march freely into your life.
Lysa TerKeurst
Only a system of state-controlled schools can be free to teach whatever the welfare of the State may demand.
Ellwood Patterson Cubberley
The pseudo-conscience … demands not obedience to the inner law of our being, but conformity to super-imposed convention.
Frances G. Wickes
Bureaucrats denounce private enterprise for the consequences of their own reckless policies and demand still more governmental controls.
Henry Hazlitt
We continue to advocate and demand that the territorial integrity of both Ukraine and Georgia be preserved… It is absolutely unacceptable that in the 21st century, Russia is shifting borders in Europe by force.
Andrzej Duda
Our demand for meat, dairy and refined carbohydrates – the world consumes one billion cans or bottles of Coke a day – our demand for these things, not our need, our want – drives us to consume way more calories than are good for us.
Mark Bittman
What’s interesting about young black American artists within the twentieth century, and increasingly within the twenty-first as well, is that there’s this expectation of a political corrective that demands that the artist fixes the ills of the world.
Kehinde Wiley
For the amoral herd that fears boredom above all else, everything becomes entertainment. Sex and sport, politics and the arts are transformed into entertainment. … Nothing is immune from the demand that boredom be relieved (but without personal involvement, for mass society is a spectator society).
Merold Westphal
After the demands of the ego and its greed surrendered, the struggle for fulfillment of personal desires lessens; life takes on a new zest like a breath of fresh air.
Sivananda Radha Saraswati
I favor the extension of the middle-class tax cuts because in a recession they’re stimulative and they help with demand.
Peter Welch
Obviously, nu-que-lar power is, uh, a renewable source of energy, and the less demand there is for non-renewable sources of energy, like fossil fuels, the better it off it is for the American people.
George W. Bush
I am a judge born, raised, and proud of being a Jew. The demand for justice runs through the entirety of the Jewish tradition. I hope, in my years on the bench of the Supreme Court of the United States, I will have the strength and the courage to remain constant in the service of that demand.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
The artist must be blind to distinction between ‘recognized’ or ‘unrecognized’ conventions of form, deaf to the transitory teaching and demands of his particular age.
Wassily Kandinsky
It is really the mistake of our age. We think it is enough to discover new things, but we don’t realize that knowing more demands a corВ­responding development of morality.
Carl Jung
Global poverty is a complex web of interlinked problems. There is no one ‘silver bullet’ that will solve global inequality. Multiple contributing factors must be tackled in parallel. Yes, education alone is unlikely to lead to employment without economic reform to address the demand side in much of the developing world.
Adam Braun
We demand Congress access and publicly release Donald Trump’s tax returns!
Rashida Tlaib
Trump doesn’t force the networks to show his rallies live rather than do real reporting. Nor does he force anyone to accept his phone calls rather than demand that he do a face-to-face interview that would be a greater risk for him.
Campbell Brown
I demand riches in definite terms; I have a definite plan for acquiring riches;I am engaged in carrying out my plan, and I am giving an equivalent,in useful service, of the value of those riches I demand.
Andrew Carnegie
The only correct actions are those that demand no explanation and no apology.
Red Auerbach
The trafficking of sex and violence is comes after the demand for ratings.
Norman Lear
We need to reduce or at least limit U.S. demand for oil as quickly as possible, and we need to develop new technologies that can further help address our addiction to oil in the future.
Sherwood Boehlert
You always have to be very aware that the audience is extremely ruthless in its demand for newness, novelty and freshness.
Christopher Nolan
It is not the repeated mistakes, the long succession of petty betrayals–though, God knows, they would give cause enough for anxiety and self-contempt–but the huge elementary mistake, the betrayal of that within me which is greater than I–in complacent adjustment to alien demands.
Dag Hammarskjold
Population regulates itself by the funds which are to employ it, and therefore always increases or diminishes with the increase or the diminution of capital. Every reduction of capital is therefore necessarily followed by a less effective demand for corn, by a fall in price, and by a diminished cultivation.
Thomas Malthus
Democracy is essentially anti-authoritarian–that is, it not only demands the right but imposes the responsibility of thinking for ourselves.
John Dryden
Not to know of what things one should demand demonstration, and of what one should not, argues want of education.
Debt deflation is when there’s less money that people have to spend out of their paychecks on goods and services, because they’re paying the FIRE sector. Oil going down is a function of the supply and demand of oil in the market. It’s a separate phenomenon.
Michael Hudson
Christ told his disciples not to be anxious about tomorrow, but he never said not to consider tomorrow. Intelligent problem solving demands careful consideration of the future effects of present solutions.
R. C. Sproul
The fish was an enemy. It had come upon the community and killed two men, a woman, and a child. The people of Amity would demand the death of the fish. They would need to see it dead before they could feel secure enough to resume their normal lives.
Peter Benchley
I feel that good fantasy will always be in demand. I think children especially need literature that helps them escape from the real world, which is very scary to them right now.
R. L. Stine
The notion that the natural world obeys its own rules and doesn’t give a damn about your expectations comes as a massive shock. But the natural world is not so malleable. On the contrary, it will demand that you adapt to it – and if you don’t, you die.
Michael Crichton
Until the public demands otherwise, the policy makers will continue to serve their financiers.
James Hansen
Nanoengineering is learning how to make devices as small as 10 to 100 atoms in width. Much of the work is going on in the electronics industry, where there is great demand to pack more components onto computer chips.
George M. Whitesides
Many are observing Ferguson and witnessing the anger, demonstrations, looting and vandalism and calling for quiet. But quiet isn’t enough. The absence of noise isn’t the presence of justice – and we must demand justice in Ferguson and the other ‘Fergusons’ around America.
Jesse Jackson
It is time to take a stand for the future. Not in just words but actions. It is time to step up and demand the Vision. For by its realization, we all will win, and I mean us all.
Rick Tumlinson
There is a huge tension in trying to write with small children because they demand your attention and your time with a fierceness that can be matched by nothing else, but if you are successful in writing while you have small children, I actually think that your writing is likely to be deeper than it was before.
Alexi Zentner
If there is genuine potential for growth, build capacity in advance of demand, as a strategy for creating demand. Hold the vision, especially as regards assessing key performance and evaluating whether capacity to meet potential demand is adequate.
Peter Senge
To make the future demands courage. It demands work. But it also demands faith.
Peter Drucker
I don’t have much of an attention span for TV – I nod off during the basketball playoffs – but when I watch ‘Game of Thrones’ on On Demand, I’m glued to the set. It’s mystical and addictive. Tyrion Lannister, that’s my man.
Steve Harvey
The demand for liberty is a demand for power, either for possession of powers of action not already possessed or for retention and expansion of powers already possessed.
John Dewey
We expect more from technology and less from each other. We create technology to provide the illusion of companionship without the demands of friendship.
Sherry Turkle
If leadership requires a fired-up sense of purpose and imagination, it also demands a profound connection to the society to be led.
George Takei
A hedge fund manager whose clients demand monthly performance reports has different needs than any individual investors with a 20-year time horizon. The needs of that long-term investor differ markedly from someone who is retiring in three years.
Barry Ritholtz
Our demand for good looks, expressed in the biting comments that ensue when public figures fall short of perfection, puts enormous pressures on these individuals and may screen out the otherwise qualified. If video killed the radio star, it may also be doing away with the homely politician.
Virginia Postrel
While no man in his right mind would advocate sending our ground forces into continental China, and such was never given a thought, the new situation did urgently demand a drastic revision of strategic planning if our political aim was to defeat this new enemy as we had defeated the old.
Douglas MacArthur
…What our age needs, what it demands, what it will create for itself, is—terror.
Thomas Mann
Neoconservatism had the philosophy that you go in with a supply-led approach to impose democratic values from the top down. Whereas Islamists and far-right organizations, for decades, have been building demand for their ideology on the grassroots.
Maajid Nawaz
God demands not that I be successful, but that I be faithful.
Mother Teresa
Creativity demands nothing less than all you have. Talent alone is never enough.
Erica Jong
Indian actors, because of the format of our stories, need to be good actors, and be able to perform emotional sequences, do a bit of comedy, dance and singing, action, because all of this forms just one film. In many ways I’d say there are greater demands on Indian actors than there are on Hollywood.
Amitabh Bachchan
True fans of the Constitution, like true fans of the national pastime, acknowledge the critical role of human judgment in making tough calls. We don’t expect flawless interpretation. We expect good faith. We demand honesty.
Eric Liu
Literature boils with the madcap careers of writers brought to the edge by the demands of living on their nerves, wringing out their memories and their nightmares to extract meaning, truth, beauty.
Herbert Gold
To inspire a singularity of focus, a challenge must be important to you and it must be something you feel you should do now in this moment. If it’s trivial or not time-bound, you won’t engage. So in selecting your next challenge in life, choose one that is meaningful and will demand your complete concentration.
Brendon Burchard
Our country demands all our strength, all our energies. To resist the powerful combination now forming against us will require every man at his place. If victorious, we will have everything to hope for in the future. If defeated, nothing will be left for us to live for.
Robert E. Lee
The law requires works of human achievement; the gospel requires faith in Christ’s achievement. The law makes demands and bids us obey; the gospel brings promises and bids us believe.
John Stott
Theatre is very much concerned with the society, with the social situation… A theatre piece of itself, demands a confrontation with the audience. It demands that you connect with people; it demands a collective and social effort with the company and later with the audience.
Griselda Gambaro
Every great loss demands that we choose life again. We need to grieve in order to do this. The pain we have not grieved over will always stand between us and life. When we don’t grieve, a part of us becomes caught in the past like Lot’s wife who, because she looked back, was turned into a pillar of salt.
Rachel Naomi Remen
One must be reasonable in one’s demands on life. For myself, all that I ask is: (1) accurate information; (2) coherent knowledge; (3) deep understanding; (4) infinite loving wisdom; (5) no more kidney stones, please.
Edward Abbey
One of the marks of a truly great mind, I had discovered, is the ability to feign stupidity on demand.
Alan Bradley
A grandparent is old on the outside but young on the inside. If your baby is “beautiful and perfect, never cries or fusses, sleeps on schedule and burps on demand, an angel all the time,” you’re the grandma.
Teresa Bloomingdale
That’s just how I live my life. That’s how I was raised: to demand excellence out of myself.
Ezekiel Elliott
Gratitude is most treasured when it is unexpected. When we expect, even demand gratitude, we treat it simply as payment due for some service we rendered and we squeeze any good feeling out of it.
Michael Josephson
I realize that ‘hire qualified women!’ is the sort of outraged demand that’s often met with a sigh. No one disagrees, and yet gender inequality in high-paying positions extends into all professions.
Nell Scovell
The market-driven spectacle of war demands a culture of conformity, quiet intellectuals and a largely passive republic of consumers.
Henry Giroux
Agriculture is one economic activity that does not obey the laws of demand and supply.
John Kenneth Galbraith
It is hard to know exactly when the Arab Spring, a phrase used to describe the beginning of the Arab peoples’ demand for democracy and human-rights reform, started.
Richard Grenell
The fruits of the earth do not more obviously require labor and cultivation to prepare them for our use and subsistence, than our faculties demand instruction and regulation in order to qualify us to become upright and valuable members of society, useful to others, or happy ourselves.
Isaac Barrow
The thing I always demand is respect. I respect everybody and have a history in the sport, and I believe people need to respect me.
Anderson Silva
If, as consumers, we can change our mindset so that we see gnarled, twisted, lumpy or otherwise imperfect produce as beautiful, we can create demand, change the system and ultimately help feed the world.
Dana Cowin
The idea that the growing demand for energy worldwide can be met with energy from nuclear power is nonsense.
Sigmar Gabriel
People at the top spend less money than those at the bottom, so when you have redistribution toward the top, aggregate demand goes down. Unless you intervene, you’re going to have a weak economy unless something else happens.
Joseph Stiglitz
The mind may be reluctant to think properly when thinking is all it is supposed to do; the task can be as paralysing as having to tell a joke or mimic an accent on demand.
Alain de Botton
The signal instances of Providential goodness which we have experienced and which have now almost crowned our labors with complete success demand from us in a peculiar manner the warmest returns of gratitude and piety to the Supreme Author of all good.
George Washington
Absolute power corrupts even when exercised for humane purposes. The benevolent despot who sees himself as a shepherd of the people still demands from others the submissiveness of sheep. The taint inherent in absolute power is not its inhumanity but its anti-humanity.
Eric Hoffer
It’s a simple question of supply and demand. But all of us are grossly overpaid. I think it’s a ridiculous dispute.
Jim Courier
I don’t think poetry will die, but I think that poetry does demand a certain kind of attention to language.
Edward Hirsch
When backed up against a wall, dig deep, demand excellence, stand tall, and be strong.
Robert Cheeke
The dignity of the individual demands that he be not reduced to vassalage by the largesse of others.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Sometimes the magnetism of a song is impossible to ignore, and it demands that it be sung in a certain way.
Tom Waits
The law of sacrifice is uniform throughout the world. To be effective it demands the sacrifice of the bravest and the most spotless.
Mahatma Gandhi
Most of what needs to be changed in the euro zone can be done without treaty changes. The demand for treaty change is as political as it is legal and I don’t think it’s going to happen soon.
Nick Clegg
Evidence is mounting that faith-based service programs are often more successful than other programs in correcting social problems. [It is wrong] for government to demand that religious nonprofits gut precisely that part of their program [funded through tax dollars] that makes them so effective.
Ronald J. Sider
If you have a lot of what people want and can’t get, then you can supply the demand and shovel in the dough.
Lucky Luciano
Why do the people think so little of death?
Because the rulers demand too much of life.
Therefore the people take death lightly.
Greece, alone, is in a very vulnerable position. If the Greeks had had support from progressive left and popular forces elsewhere in Europe they might have been able to resist the demands of the Troika, but they had almost no support. Not even from Portugal, Spain, or other left forces. They were left alone.
Noam Chomsky
I always try to demand greatness from myself.
Jamal Murray
During the 1960s, large groups of people who are normally passive and apathetic began to try to enter the political arena to press their demands…. The naive might call that democracy, but that’s because they don’t understand. The sophisticated understand that that’s the crisis of democracy.
Noam Chomsky
If anybody was to look towards a big source of demand in future, it would be hard for them to miss India.
Raghuram Rajan
Generally, I don’t bother trying to keep up with prolific bands – but Thee Oh Sees demand it.
Greg Gutfeld
I demand of myself that I take part and work hard in training to ensure I’m in the starting line-up and help the team.
The appeal of the spectrally macabre is generally narrow because it demands from the reader a certain degree of imagination and a capacity for detachment from everyday life.
H. P. Lovecraft
The key to a resilient global recovery, where growth in each country advances growth in every country, is action directed at supporting demand at home.
Lael Brainard
My mother has told so many times the unbelievable story of how, as a toddler, I would demand raw onions and eat them like apples, I think that, at this juncture, it is a story that just has to be believed.
Alice Dreger
Noble life demands a noble architecture for noble uses of noble men. Lack of culture means what it has always meant: ignoble civilization and therefore imminent downfall.
Frank Lloyd Wright
Love need not speak volumes. It need not demand proof. It never has a happy ending – simply because it doesn’t end as long as love is pure and true.
Amit Abraham
Just do this one thing: promise yourself you’ll never deal underhanded to anybody. You’ll be honest in all of your business dealings. That is hard. Conquer that one. Demand it of yourself. Demand a higher standard for yourself and your children and do it.
Glenn Beck
The student who invades an administration building, roughs up a dean, rifles the files and issues ‘non-negotiable demands’ may have some of his demands met by a permissive university administration. But the greater his ‘victory’ the more he will have undermined the security of his own rights.
Richard M. Nixon
What is a demanding pleasure that demands the use of ones mind! Not in the sense of problem solving, but in the sense of exercising discrimination, judgment, awareness.
Ayn Rand
Where the glacier meets the sky, the land ceases to be earthly, and the earth becomes one with the heavens; no sorrows live there anymore, and therefore joy is not necessary; beauty alone reigns there, beyond all demands.
HalldГіr Laxness
I have one life and one chance to make it count for something… My faith demands that I do whatever I can, wherever I am, whenever I can, for as long as I can with whatever I have to try to make a difference.
Jimmy Carter
By explanation the scientist understands nothing except the reduction to the least and simplest basic laws possible, beyond which he cannot go, but must plainly demand them; from them however he deduces the phenomena absolutely completely as necessary.
Carl Friedrich Gauss
Once I realized there was a demand for activewear, I thought, why not make my own?
Jordyn Woods
The efficacy of religion lies precisely in what is not rational, philosophic, nor eternal; its efficacy lies in the unforeseen, the miraculous, the extraordinary. Thus religion attracts more devotion according as it demands more faith – that is to say, as it becomes more incredible to the profane mind.
Henri Frederic Amiel
I will meet the world’s demands and win!
Bob Proctor
I lose my patience, and I own it too,
When works are censur’d, not as bad but new;
While if our Elders break all reason’s laws,
These fools demand not pardon but Applause.
Alexander Pope
The executives who run the fast food industry are not bad men. They are businessmen. They will sell free-range, organic, grass-fed hamburgers if you demand it. They will sell whatever sells at a profit.
Eric Schlosser
We don’t need to reinvent manliness. We only need to will ourselves to wake up from the bad dream of the last few generations and reclaim it, in order to extend and enrich that tradition under the formidable demands of the present.
Waller R Newell
Artistic creation is a demand for unity and a rejection of the world.
Albert Camus
The demands that a great man makes are on himself; those of a petty man are upon others.
Leadership is learned, earned, and discerned. You develop it. It’s based on trust and credibility. Others see it in you. You can’t demand it.
Rick Warren
In a world in which technology is changing at such a fast pace, where demand conditions change very fast, we need to look at a more innovative mechanism to cut down on this rigmarole of many tiers of decision-making processes.
Manmohan Singh
There is the great, silent, continuous struggle: the struggle between the State and the Individual; between the State which demands and the individual who attempts to evade such demands. Because the individual, left to himself, unless he be a saint or hero, always refuses to pay taxes, obey laws, or go to war.
Benito Mussolini
A shortage is a sign that somebody is keeping the price artificially lower than it would be if supply and demand were allowed to operate freely.
Thomas Sowell
The health of the eye seems to demand a horizon. We are never tired, so long as we can see far enough.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
In emerging markets, slow growth in the advanced economies has shut down a traditional development path: export-led growth. As a result, emerging markets have had to rely once again on domestic demand. This is always a difficult task, given the temptation to over-stimulate.
Raghuram Rajan
A fast is not a hunger strike. Fasting submits to God’s commands. A hunger strike makes God submit to our demands.
Edwin Louis Cole
I think the main problem we have is the pricing of oil as it is now. I think it’s wrong. It does not reflect the fundamentals of supply/demand.
Ahmed Zaki Yamani
There is a state that is able to understand the demand in the economy. That state should use prices as an instrument for implementation of this understanding.
Anatoly Chubais
I’m disappointed . . . that the president has not done more to demand that Congress and other federal agencies make the same sacrifices millions of Americans are already making. There is no charity without sacrifice.
Tom Coburn
Until the building of Solomons temple the unity of worship according to it had, properly speaking, never had any existence; and, moreover, it is easy to read between the lines that even after that date it was more a pious wish than a practical demand.
Julius Wellhausen
I refuse to be typecast, and I’ll have a go at anything so long as it’s different, challenging, hard work and demands great versatility.
Pete Postlethwaite
This [9/11 event] was bloody-minded destruction for no other reason than to do it. Note that there was no claim for these attacks. There were no demands. There were no statements. It was a silent piece of terror. This was part of nothing.
Edward Said
The demand to be safe in a relationship inevitably breeds sorrow and fear.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
All television ever did was shrink the demand for ordinary movies. The demand for extraordinary movies increased. If any one thing is wrong with the movie industry today, it is the unrelenting effort to astonish.
Clive James
A newborn baby has only three demands. They are warmth in the arms of its mother, food from her breasts, and security in the knowledge of her presence. Breastfeeding satisfies all three.
Grantly Dick-Read
Macroeconomics is the analysis of the economy as a whole, an examination of overall supply and demand. At the broadest level, macroeconomists want to understand why some countries grow faster than others and which government policies can help growth.
Alex Berenson
It is Stoicism that demands a closed universe, not the Bible.
Richard J. Foster
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgement will always be in demand under all conditions.
Roger Babson
If the state requires a bullet train, I would demand a bullet train to connect Mumbai and Nagpur.
Uddhav Thackeray
Any honest examination of the national life proves how far we are from the standard of human freedom with which we began. The recovery of this standard demands of everyone who loves this country a hard look at himself, for the greatest achievements must begin somewhere, and they always begin with the person.
James A. Baldwin
I remember doing 5th grade math when I was like seven years old. My parents just constantly pushed me, in a good way, to always demand excellence in everything that I did.
Simu Liu
One area in which we can be certain mass immigration has an effect is housing. More than one third of all new housing demand in Britain is caused by immigration. And there is evidence that without the demand caused by mass immigration, house prices could be 10% lower over a 20-year period.
Theresa May
The people of Canada have worked hard to build a country that opens its doors to include all, regardless of their differences; a country that respects all, regardless of their differences; a country that demands equality for all, regardless of their differences.
Paul Martin
With Russia about to hold the Winter Games in Sochi, the country is open to pressure. American and world leaders must speak out against Mr. Putin’s attacks and the violence they foster. The Olympic Committee must demand the retraction of these laws under threat of boycott.
Harvey Fierstein
If joining IBM was commitment, not employment, and the company engaged in something more than business, it had a right to demand of its men unconditional loyalty, Watson believed.
Thomas Watson
Be mindful of what supermarkets are doing and demand to see their business practices. Stop throwing away food. Compost as much as you can, eat as locally and as seasonally as you can. Share knowledge and information.
Arthur Potts Dawson
Growth demands a temporary surrender of security. It may mean giving up familiar but limiting patterns, safe but unrewarding work, values no longer believed in, and relationships that have lost their meaning.
John C. Maxwell
Taking architecture seriously therefore makes some singular and strenuous demands upon us…It means conceding that we are inconveniently vulnerable to the colour of our wallpaper and that our sense of purpose may be derailed by an unfortunate bedspread
Alain de Botton
Some hate broccoli, some hate bacon I hate having my picture taken. How can your family claim to love you And then demand a picture of you?
Ogden Nash
The first demand any work of art makes upon us is to surrender. Look. Listen. Receive. Get yourself out of the way.
C. S. Lewis
People confuse goodness with weakness. It is weak people, not good people (goodness demands strength), who are taken advantage of.
Dennis Prager
Nonfiction means that our stories are as true and accurate as possible. Readers expect – demand – diligence.
Lee Gutkind
You do not have to sit outside in the dark. If, however, you want to look at the stars, you will find that darkness is necessary. But the stars neither require nor demand it.
Annie Dillard
It is undeniably easier to ignore the hardships of those who are too weak to demand their rights than to respond sensitively to their needs. To care is to accept responsibility, to dare to act in accordance with the dictum that the ruler is the strength of the helpless.
Aung San Suu Kyi
What you demand from storytelling is a moral – even political – import. I tend to shun that didactic aspect.
Aleksandar Hemon
All my life I have preserved in the depths of my heart a live faith in my Creator, the Defender of the World, in His Sanctifying Grace and in the expiatory sacrifice of Christ our Saviour, but never have I agreed that true religion demands outward manifestations.
Valery Bryusov
The inside operation of Congress – the deals, the compromises, the selling out, the co-opting, the unprincipled manipulating, the self-serving career-building – is a story of such monumental decadence that I believe if people find out about it they will demand an end to it.
Bella Abzug
You might not believe it, but there are times when I feel the TV and radio shows demand more of me than those Sunday afternoon games.
Boomer Esiason
Leave the dishes unwashed and the demands on your time unanswered. Be ruthless and refuse to do what people ask of you.
Lynne Sharon Schwartz
It is an irony that the more possessive you are, the more love you demand, the less you receive, while the more freedom you give, the less you demand, the more love you will receive.
Harold H. Bloomfield
But who is to decide who truly fears the Lord? The magistrate has no power to enforce religious demands. The laws of the First Table of the Ten Commandments are not regulations for a civil society or a political order. They belong to the realm of religion, not politics.
Roger Williams
The modern world tends to be skeptical about everything that makes demands on man’s higher faculties. But it is not at all skeptical about skepticism, which demands hardly anything.
E. F. Schumacher
ULTIMATUM, n. In diplomacy, a last demand before resorting to concessions.
Ambrose Bierce
The way to grow grand is not: to demand. In life’s every field you are what you yield.
Piet Pieterszoon Hein
When there were not very many Internet companies, the supply of Internet companies to the market was small and the appetite for them was large. Therefore, if you were in the business of creating Internet companies in 1996-98, you had a market that provided massive demand for that.
Fred Wilson
As a Palestinian today I speak of a Palestinian and Arab demand for a state on 1967 borders. It is true that in reality there will be an entity or a state called Israel on the rest of Palestinian land. This is reality but I don’t deal with it from the point of view of recognizing or admitting it.
Khaled Mashal
Getting to the next level always requires ending something, leaving it behind, and moving on. Growth demands that we move on. Without the ability to end things, people stay stuck, never becoming who they are meant to be, never accomplishing all that their talents and abilities should afford them.
Henry Cloud
We live in a cynical system where the powerful are able to exploit the demand of the aggressive few, from whichever religion or group, to bargain for more power or cynical advantage.
Amitava Kumar
We demand that people should be true to the pictures we have of them, no matter how repulsive those pictures may be: we prefer the true portrait (as we have conceived it), in all its homogeneity, to one with a detail added which refuses to fit in.
Pamela Hansford Johnson
Love makes requests, not demands.
Gary Chapman
Now the sole remedy for the abuse of political power is to limit it; but when politics corrupt business, modern reformers invariably demand the enlargement of the political power.
Isabel Paterson
I don’t want your lying kindness. Sure, you’ll smile and be so sweet to me that I’ll trust you, but the minute I don’t give you everything you want the instant you demand it, you’ll turn on me and try to crush me. You’re just like everyone else in the world. No one matters but you. (Aiden)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
By definition, memoir demands a certain degree of introspection and self-disclosure: In order to fully engage a reader, the narrator has to make herself known, has to allow her own self-awareness to inform the events she describes.
Caroline Knapp
Four D’s of Disconnection: 1. Diagnosis (judgment, analysis, criticism, comparison); 2. Denial of Responsibility; 3. Demand; 4. ‘Deserve’ oriented language.
Marshall B. Rosenberg
Black Lives Matter is really an affirmation for our people. It’s a love note for our people, but it’s also a demand. We know that the system was not designed for justice for us.
Opal Tometi
Our demands are simple, normal, and therefore they are difficult to satisfy. All we ask is that an actor on the stage live in accordance with natural laws.
Constantin Stanislavski
To view your life as blessed does not require you to deny your pain. It simply demands a more complicated vision, one in which a condition or event is not either good or bad but is, rather, both good and bad, not sequentially, but simultaneously.
Nancy Mairs
Education no longer stops on graduation day. We must demand excellence at every level of education.
William J. Clinton
I’m not in demand. I’m all washed up.
Sam Shepard
The human capital of most macroeconomists, heavily invested in demand management, was wiped out by the policy failures of the 1970s.
Paul Craig Roberts
I think that fiction has this special responsibility or this special ability to help people to empathize, to demand of people that they understand other individuals and other people’s experiences.
Ben H. Winters
As reforms have come into India, as India has started opening up, prosperity is increasing, as is demand for urban housing.
Kushal Pal Singh
TV is and will remain the leading medium – whether it’s public broadcasting, commercially funded Free-TV, or whether it is our new growth engine, Pay-TV; whether it is distributed via broadcasting or on demand: The future of TV is – TV!
Gerhard Zeiler
I am the voice of the people in Iran whose voices are silent and whose demands cannot be heard by the rest of the world.
Shirin Ebadi
Most of us grew up speaking a language that encourages us to label, compare, demand, and pronounce judgments rather than to be aware of what we are feeling and needing.
Marshall B. Rosenberg
Running taught me to have faith in my skills as a writer. I learned how much I can demand of myself, when I need a break, and when the break starts to get too long. I known how hard I am allowed to push myself.
Haruki Murakami
When energy prices go up, the difficulty of projecting demand also goes up – uncertainty goes up.
Al Gore
I do not play chess – I fight at chess. Therefore, I willingly combine the tactical with the strategic, the fantastic with the scientific, the combinative with the positional, and I aim to respond to the demands of each given position.
Alexander Alekhine
In Madrid, the demand is maximum, and you have to always be at the top. If you are not, doubts come.
Luka Modric
I respect everybody, but at the same time, I carry myself with an aura that demands respect, too.
Lil’ Kim
But communication is two-sided – vital and profound communication makes demands also on those who are to receive it… demands in the sense of concentration, of genuine effort to receive what is being communicated.
Roger Sessions
Liberalism demands that people without guns be able to tell people with guns what to do.
Stephen Holmes
With demands for special education or standardized test prep being shouted in their ears, public schools can’t always hear a parent when he says: ‘I want my child to be able to write contracts in Spanish,’ or, ‘I want my child to shake hands firmly,’ or, ‘I want my child to study statistics and accounting, not calculus.
Amity Shlaes
The student of mathematics must get rid of all arbitrary thinking and follow purely the demands of thought. In thinking in this way, the laws of the spiritual world flow into him. This regulated thinking leads to the most spiritual truths.
Rudolf Steiner
When you demand nothing of the world, nor of God, when you want nothing, seek nothing, expect nothing, then the supreme state will come to you uninvited and unexpected.
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Sometimes, and those times are many, wisdom demands that we remain silent. This is such a time.
PLO Lumumba
Remember that an artist’s life is an intense search for truth. This search takes many forms. Everyone of these forms demands its own disciplines. I learned and adapted to my search. I expect nothing from you. Question the truth of anything you confront. How does it apply to yourself and the trail you are pursuing?
Brice Marden
Leaders who fail to appreciate this fundamental precept of accountability must also fail to muster the profound commitment true leadership demands.
Peter Cosgrove
To us, mastering the atomic fuel cycle and generating nuclear power is as much about diversifying our energy resources as it is about who Iranians are as a nation, our demand for dignity and respect, and our consequent place in the world.
Hassan Rouhani
Could the garment and appliance industries be in cahoots together, creating an artificial sock demand to keep us buying?
Tom Bodett
We are a small, open economy, highly dependent on global flows. It is inevitably a demand that dramatically alters and that is reflected in what we feel here in New Zealand. So there is at its most basic level a limit to what we can do and that is true everywhere.
John Key
Freedom is our most precious commodity and if we are not eternally vigilant, government will take it all away. Individual freedom demands individual responsibility.
Lyn Nofziger
There is no demand for women engineers, as such, as there are for women doctors; but there’s always a demand for anyone who can do a good piece of work.
Edith Clarke
An actor can grow stale in a bad part. Actors grow stale, generally, because there’s no demand on them.
Norman Lloyd
The United Nations greatest fear is that average Americans will no longer tolerate these international scandals and demand that America withdraw from the international organization.
Ginny Brown-Waite
Popular privileges are consistent with a state of society in which there is great inequality of position. Democratic rights, on the contrary, demand that there should be equality of condition as the fundamental basis of the society they regulate.
Benjamin Disraeli
Given is the word. Given publicly, on the first Good Friday, on a hill, in the sight of all, was the visible demonstration of the only permanent way to overcome evil. Human nature demands something more enduring than the unquiet equilibrium of rival powers.
Muriel Lester
It doesn’t matter if it’s social media or radio media or television media – it’s all media, and it’s all marketing. It’s about understanding where your fans are. And when you have infiltrated them, and they’re satisfied, and there’s demand, how do you grow it from there?
Scott Borchetta
The key demand for me from the public across the 34 provinces is to transform the state into an instrument of the rule of law, transform the economy into a productive system and change the education system.
Ashraf Ghani
You be greater than your feelings. I don’t demand this of you – life does. Otherwise you’ll be washed away by feelings. You’ll be washed out to sea and never seen again.
Philip Roth
It took us three years to even come close to catching up with the demand a little bit.
Ruth Handler
The demand for absolute purity of genres is becoming nowadays an anachronism in literature.
Stanislaw Lem
Hence it demands the emptiness of all the faculties. And when the faculties are empty, then the whole being listens. There is then a direct grasp of what is right there before you that can never be heard with the ear or understood with the mind.
The coach is a human being and does not demand miracles from human beings. He has the humility to understand that there are other people with different ideas to his own, but he does not have to use those words.
You can see it on the Internet now. New society demands that people share their knowledge. It’s asking multimillionaires to share their money and creative people to share their creativity. Whoever doesn’t share their wealth, be it knowledge, money, or creativity, will be dead.
Ferran Adria
There has been a huge growth in the audience attending live concerts. It’s delightful to see the increase in audience members and I hope to see more demand for live concerts in the years to come.
Tulsi Kumar
Love cannot accept what it is. Everywhere on earth it cries out against kindness, compassion, intelligence, everything that leads to compromise. Love demands the impossible, the absolute, the sky on fire, inexhaustible springtime, life after death, and death itself transfigured into eternal life.
Albert Camus
Global crude oil demand is increasing, particularly in places like China.
Gary Miller
Globally, manufacturing jobs are on the decline, simply because productivity growth has outpaced growth in demand.
Joseph Stiglitz
China and India will, separately and together, unleash an explosion of demand.
Mukesh Ambani
France on its own cannot impose its point of view. But neither should it give up on its demands. With a clear vote for change France will be in a strong position.
Laurent Fabius
The condition-of-England question is a practical one. The condition of England demands a hero, not a poet.
Henry David Thoreau
The public, with its mob yearning to be instructed, edified and pulled by the nose, demands certainties; it must be told definitely and a bit raucously that this is true and that is false. But there are no certainties.
H. L. Mencken
I demand more of myself than anyone else could ever expect.
Julius Erving
Your culture demands that you bring some kind of crisis to your work and therefore you can not bring any unity to it. In order to bring crisis into your work you have to bring it to a state of expectancy. In other words you have to leave your work in the state of mind of being a question.
Milton Resnick
When you discover your mission, you will feel its demand. It will fill you with enthusiasm and a burning desire to get to work on it.
W. Clement Stone
Wisdom and policy dictate that we must do as destiny demands and keep peace with the irresistible march of events.
Napoleon Bonaparte
The price of ability does not depend on merit but on supply and demand.
George Bernard Shaw
France turned a deaf ear to the demands, but Ho had succeeded in attracting great publicity in progressive French circles to the situation in Indochina.
Wilfred Burchett
The principle of compassion is that which converts disillusionment into a participatory companionship. This is the basic love, the charity, that turns a critic into a living human being who has something to give to – as well as to demand of – the world.
Joseph Campbell
When I become prime minister, I’m going to buy one of those Margaret Thatcher handbags, and I’ll bang it on the table and demand my money back from the government for past bad services.
Pim Fortuyn
The first step into justice begins with the politicians. You have to demand from yourself what you demand from people.
Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj
You have to have in mind what you want when you go public. It’s not just an end in and of itself. Suddenly, you have investors to satisfy. Investors who want – who demand – a return.
Gary Kovacs
The pent-up demand for the good life in China is extraordinary.
Steve Wynn
My belief is that the nation-state remains the one entity that can function, the one entity that can demand sacrifice from its constituents in the national interest.
Jeff Sessions
In many ways, it’s easier to write a book. You have more latitude with structure, and you have the freedom to luxuriate within the internal lives and musings of your characters. But where a screenplay does not always demand great prose, a novel lives or dies by it.
John Fusco
Success doesn’t demand a price. Every step forward pays a dividend.
David Joseph Schwartz
It so happens that the major relationships in the novel [The Kite Runner] are between men, dictated not by any sort of prejudice or discomfort with female characters, but rather by the demands of the narrative.
Khaled Hosseini
There is no place for selfishness-and no place for fear! Do not be afraid, then, when love makes demands. Do not be afraid when love requires sacrifice
Pope John Paul II
If members of Congress were to vote to allow a military action, they might then share the blame if the mission were to go wrong. So they demand in the abstract that presidents ask their approval for going to war but in practice prefer to let presidents bear the burden alone.
Tom Malinowski
Absolute justice demands that mens incomes and rewards should … vary, and that some have more than others-so long as human justice is upheld by the provision of equal opportunity for all.
Sayyid Qutb
The danger is to cling to comfort and custom at a time when events demand breaking away from both. But it is also foolish to jump at every startling moment. Darwin selects primarily for prudent fast-following.
Geoffrey Moore
Inspirations never go in for long engagements; they demand immediate marriage to action.
Brendan Behan
One of the most serious problems that our country has inherited an unwillingness to talk to anyone who disagrees with us or who won’t accept, before a discussion, all the premises that we demand.
Jimmy Carter
At its highest, love is a religious state of consciousness. I love you too, Buddha loves, Jesus loves, but their love demands nothing in return.
Rising sea levels, severe draughts, the melting of the polar caps, the more frequent and devastating natural disasters all raise demand for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.
Leon Panetta
Age demands respect; youth, love.
Mary Wollstonecraft
Don’t get addicted to your requests. Your objective is needs, not requests. Because then it becomes a demand.
Marshall B. Rosenberg
As a young person, you have no fixed address, no studio, no money for materials, so I made things sort of on the run. That life doesn’t favor the stability and spatial demands of painting.
David Salle
Many Christians ‘stall out’ in the faith when the call to total commitment is received or viewed as something too high or too hard to acquire…or they have never been taught that total commitment is Christ’s demand for all His followers.
Chip Ingram
What can I do if the director and producers comes to me with a certain demand for a vision for a song? I will try my best to give them a song that matches their vision.
Ankit Tiwari
The problem that first demands solution is to discover the disruptive agent which would be potent enough to rip the Cloghvorra Stone from its parent bed, to bear it down the valley for miles, and to cast it on the mountain side.
Robert Stawell Ball
[L]et us say that we are obliged to produce the truth by the power that demands truth and needs it in order to function: we are forced to tell the truth, we are constrained, we are condemned to admit the truth or to discover it.
Michel Foucault
I affirm that the crisis of the disc is a lure, it does not exist: the offer is intact, the increasing demand. But, each night, in the hangars of the music, the half of stock is stolen. Imagine the reaction of Renault vis-a-vis delinquents who would force the door daily to conceal the cars!
Jean-Louis Murat
If what you want is actual change, then what has to be built is a mass movement that is militant and can use direct action to slow or stop profit. A movement that can do that can demand whatever it wants.
Boots Riley
In 1970 the top three skills required by the Fortune 500 were the three Rs: reading, writing, and arithmetic. In 1999 the top three skills in demand were teamwork, problem-solving, and interpersonal skills. We need schools that are developing these skills.
Linda Darling-Hammond
We have reached one of the great stages in the adventure of thought … We are required to see the universe with new eyes, and it is because it makes such demands and also holds out the promise of realizing them, that the study of science is so supremely worth while.
J. W. N. Sullivan
Having written for film and television, I had little interest in turning ‘The Good Father’ into a Hollywood thriller. I was writing a novel, and novels demand that the writer goes deeper, both emotionally and thematically.
Noah Hawley
Beginning today, set an intention and a relentless focus on living your life as the greatest person you can be, in all situations. Demand that you demonstrate a strength of character in such a way that you find pride in who you are, and that others see you as a role model.
Brendon Burchard
I am like a book, with pages that have stuck together for want of use: my mind needs unpacking and the truths stored within must be turned over from time to time, to be ready when occasion demands.
Seneca the Younger
I hold in my heart that rebellious spirit of youth that demands change.
Dennis Kucinich
Sports constantly make demands on the participant for top performance, and they develop integrity, self-reliance and initiative. They teach you a lot about working in groups, without being unduly submerged in the group.
Byron White
The real test of one’s belief in the doctrine of Habeas Corpus is not when one demands its application on behalf of one’s friends but of one’s enemies.
Clement Attlee
My girlfriend is much better than I am at working hard then resting, and she demands that from me, too. She insists on having time when we don’t do anything. We leave the housework and watch a movie.
Cynthia Nixon
It does demand a certain space in order to read it and I think that space is somewhat threatened by the lack of attention that people have and the amount of time that they give to things.
Edward Hirsch
Leadership requires a non-stop demand of fortitude from Day 1 to the end.
Bill Hybels
I don’t support an amnesty.(Cornyn) demands an ongoing focus on security and workplace enforcement before considering steps to grant legal status, let alone citizenship.
John Cornyn
If somebody accuses you in a story of being a crook, you can demand that they prove it. But if a comic says it and you protest, people say, ‘What’s the matter, you can’t take a joke?
Robert Orben
Excellence demands effort and planned, deliberate practice of increasing difficulty
K. Anders Ericsson
It was not that she was out of temper, but that the world was not equal to the demands of her fine organism.
George Eliot
Leaders of the future will have to be visionary and be able to bring people in – real communicators. These are things that women bring to leadership and executive positions, and it’s going to be incredibly valuable and incredibly in demand.
Anita Borg
If you find that your organization can’t make the hard decisions that Scrum demands, then high-risk, uncertain projects have very little probability of success in your organization.
Jim Highsmith
Chinese growth will either be strong or very strong. They have a voracious demand for energy that will only continue to grow. What they’re doing… is looking at all forms of energy. They’re going ahead very strongly with coal, nuclear, oil, natural gas.
John S. Watson
no person is your friend (or kin) who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow and be perceived as fully blossomed as you were intended. Or who belittles in any fashion the gifts you labor so to bring into the world.
Alice Walker
If I want more, I need to go and get it, demand it, take hold of it with all my might, and do the best I can with it.
Melina Marchetta
A prose that is altogether alive demands something of the reader that the ordinary novel reader is not prepared to give.
T. S. Eliot
Controlled, universal disarmament is the imperative of our time. The demand for it by the hundreds of millions whose chief concern is the long future of themselves and their children will, I hope, become so universal and so insistent that no man, no government anywhere, can withstand it.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
If we were all to reduce our demands for energy, it would make an enormous amount of difference.
David Attenborough
Christianity demands the crucifixion of the intellect.
Soren Kierkegaard
Money demands that you sell, not your weakness to men’s stupidity, but your talent to their reason.
Ayn Rand
We call on the Senate to reject any judicial nominee who does not affirm fundamental civil rights, including a woman’s right [to obtain an abortion on demand]. The threat an [pro-life] judiciary poses to women’s lives demands nothing less.
Susana Martinez
The demand in India is to have a hit, which becomes a promotion for the movie and makes people come to the theater. You have five songs and different promotions based on those. But when I do Western films, the need for originality is greater. Then I become very conscious about the writing.
A. R. Rahman
Success demands paranoia.
Joseph Finder
In my experience, I have found that creativity demands a vigilant mind, which is weakened by the influence of drugs.
Ernst Junger
There’s a harsh reality to situations where demand outstrips supply.
Travis Kalanick
It interrupts any doing, any ordinary activities, no matter what they happen to be. All thinking demands a stop-and-think.
Hannah Arendt
1963, because of the sense of moral authority that the civil rights movement had, we were able to get people to respond, because of the quality of our demand and our sense of moral authority.
John Lewis
Donald Trump has a great campaign slogan: ‘A complex world demands complex hair.’
David Letterman
As a writer, I demand the right to write any character in the world that I want to write. I demand the right to be them, I demand the right to think them and I demand the right to tell the truth as I see they are.
Quentin Tarantino
Architects work in two ways. One is to respond precisely to a client’s needs or demands. Another is to look at what the client asks and reinterpret it.
Rem Koolhaas
The sacred demands the violation of what is normally the object of terrified respect.
Georges Bataille
