If you're African American, you are forced into making different choices, in a lot of cases, than you are as a white person.
Some women are convinced that they are the same size they were 20 years ago. They also wear clothes that are too big in an effort to hide their body. Both cases are unflattering and work against your body. Some women are in denial about changing.
You can manage cancer. You don't have to be degraded by humiliating treatments and protocols. And in some cases, you can be cured of cancer.
A great deal has been written in recent years about the purported lack of motivation in the children of the Negro ghettos. Little in my experience supports this, yet the phrase has been repeated endlessly, and the blame in almost all cases is placed somewhere outside the classroom.
These are the same people who believe, in some cases, the federal government should not play any role in providing health care to our people or protecting the environment.
Eighty percent of the cases used in the typical MBA program are about successful companies. Students graduate with this notion that 'If I do everything that the people in those cases did, then my organization will grow and be successful, too.'
We don't have any measures in most cases of the health of our social relationships, of what we're giving to the community.
I think that in some cases, I've made films that have a sentimental quality, at least as part of the film.
Gus Van Sant
Most high courts in other nations do not have discretion, such as we enjoy, in selecting the cases that the high court reviews. Our court is virtually alone in the amount of discretion it has.
Sandra Day O'Connor
My feeling is that the judge has a responsibility to the Constitution first, precedent second. Precedent is one factor. It is not the only factor. If it was the only factor, then, you know, we wouldn't have had Roe vs. Wade. We wouldn't have had Griswold. We wouldn't have had Lawrence. We wouldn't have had all these cases which the Left love.
You don't have to vaccinate every man, woman and child in the country if you have a couple of cases of smallpox cropping up.
A number of cases have been reported in which a dying individual has a vision of a person about whose death he or she did not know.
The reaction to 'Aftermath' has been far worse than to 'A Life's Work,' yet I find I'm perhaps a little less touched by it. In both cases, I've coped artistically by believing the criticisms weren't right. They upset me, but they didn't challenge my understanding of how to write, nor of how morality functions in literature.
When I was a prosecutor in San Francisco I would get advice on trying cases from public defenders and defense attorneys.
African-American women account for 67 percent of all newly diagnosed female AIDS cases.
So many of us had hoped that the civil system might be an alternative for some women, where the burdens were a little bit less, and cases might be easier to prove.
I believe our foreign assistance should be scrutinized, should be debated, and that we should strike the right balance, but in all cases the foreign assistance that we provide around the world should be used to further our national security interests.
In rare cases, I've had music before I shot the movie. I think that for 'Good Will Hunting' I had an Elliot Smith record or a couple of them and I just somehow felt like the sound had something to it that reminded me of the story. So in that case there was music beforehand.
Gus Van Sant
I think there's few cases in history where the C.E.O. steps down and is also the founder and reports to someone and that works.
I've done a lot of stupid things, but in most cases I can't complain about the outcomes.
In the best cases, Twitter makes people smarter and faster and more efficient.
Lyme disease is the most commonly reported tick-borne illness in the United States, and the incidence is growing rapidly. In 2009, the C.D.C. reported thirty-eight thousand cases, three times more than in 1991. Most researchers agree that the true number of infections is five to ten times higher.
In all cases our stance will be determined by what serves the interests of the Palestinian people.
It's my job to really commit myself to the material and the project and be proud of what I've done, and I am in most cases.
But that is a valid, continuing service that that music - which is, in some cases, 80 or 90 years old - is rendering. And proving its own timelessness.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
