The Gospel of John makes explicit what all the Gospels assume - that is, the cross is not a defeat, but the victory of our God.
Should Sen. McCain capture the nomination as many assume, I believe this general election will offer the worst choices for President in my lifetime. I certainly can't vote for Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama based on their virulently anti-family policy positions.
People assume that computers will do everything that humans do. Not good. People are different from each other and they are all really different from computers.
People assume actresses are afraid to get older; the truth is the roles get a whole lot more compelling once you're too old to play dumb.
Companies in every industry need to assume that a software revolution is coming.
Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.
Do you not see with your own eyes the chrysalis fact assume by degrees the wings of fiction?
Alfred de Vigny
Exoticism can give you an edge: it makes people assume you're cleverer than you are and gives you the upper hand.
Kristin Scott Thomas
I've never read a book or attended a class on screenwriting. I'm not opposed to the idea, but I like what I've got going on naturally and want to protect that. The one question I will ask myself as I'm re-reading a script for the 60th time is, 'Am I entertained? Still?' If the answer is 'yes,' I'll assume other people will be, too.
I've never been very successful in a monogamous relationship, but I'm looking forward to the day when I can assume that responsibility.
Never again can the Republican Party simply write off entire segments of our society because we assume our principles have limited appeal. They have broad appeal. We need to be larger than that.
Children always assume the sexual lives of their parents come to a grinding halt at their conception.
Sometimes in churches somebody will discover a particular vein of spirituality and seek to recruit others into it, or assume a superior position because they have found certain techniques - but no one actually wants to become like them.
Pet foods come in a variety of flavors because that's what humans like, and we assume our pets like what we like. We're wrong.
Fame changes everything. When you're well-known, you're expected to be different. Some people assume you must have a yacht and four homes. Or that you're famous because you are 'A Decent Man'.
How many straight men maintain inappropriately intimate relationships with their mothers? How many shop with them? I want a gay son. People laugh, but they assume I'm kidding. I'm not.
People complain that chefs aren't at their restaurants anymore, but I don't think that's the case at all. You see them on TV and you assume they're not working but they are.
Like most modern Americans, I assume individuality is not only a fundamental value, but a goal in life, an art form.
We all assume that if you're weak and poor, you're never going to win. In fact, the real world is full of examples where the exact opposite happens, where the weak win and the strong screw up.
In America, there's more of the question, should music be political or should it just be for entertainment purposes, whereas around the world that's not even an issue. I think people just assume that music should be everything.
I always assume that democracy is the only good form of government, quite frankly, and democracy is always to be preferred.
All of the people who are using their BlackBerries or their iPhones, Facebook, all of the people who are sitting in cafes and hotels rooms doing their work, they're all using wireless technology, and we shouldn't assume that the only way of the future is high speed cable.
I think the biggest difference is that I've noticed Western parents seem much more concerned about their children's psyches, their self-esteem, whereas tough immigrant parents assume strength rather than fragility in their children and therefore behave completely differently.
Because I first made my name as a rapper claiming South Central L.A., people often assume I'm strictly a West Coast cat. But my family was actually from back East. I was born in Newark, New Jersey, and grew up in Summit, an upscale town in north Jersey.
I don't believe you can reduce the world to a mathematical formula. I start with the world, assume it's complicated, and ask where can I get help from a whole range of disciplines.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
