Men have defined the parameters of every subject. All feminist arguments, however radical in intent or consequence, are with or against assertions or premises implicit in the male system, which is made credible or authentic by the power of men to name.
Black power can be clearly defined for those who do not attach the fears of white America to their questions about it.
Accomplishment is socially judged by ill defined criteria so that one has to rely on others to find out how one is doing.
Religion is defined by the relationship between God and man. And Islam is the submission and the acknowledgment of the human being to the creator.
Feisal Abdul Rauf
In LA, where I live, it's all about perfectionism. Beauty is now defined by your bones sticking out of your decolletage. For that to be the standard is really perilous for women.
We all live every day in virtual environments, defined by our ideas.
A technical solution may be defined as one that requires a change only in the techniques of the natural sciences, demanding little or nothing in the way of change in human values or ideas of morality.
Masculinity is what you believe it to be. I think masculinity and femininity is something that's very old-fashioned. There's a whole new generation of people who aren't defined by their sex or race or who they like to sleep with.
20th-century totalitarian movements were no more defined by a rejection of Judeo-Christianity than they were defined by a rejection of astrology, alchemy, Confucianism, Scientology, or any of hundreds of other belief systems.
Punk was defined by an attitude rather than a musical style.

Everyone's values are defined by what they will tolerate when it is done to others.
The corporate woman has been defined as the 'liberated woman' and I see that as the exact opposite. I think she now is more enslaved, maybe even more than the housewife was; because she's so out of her power, and imitating male power is not female power.
Where Cezanne captured and intensified shards of the eternal (every pear far more sharply defined than it could be in life), Monet portrayed the changeability and flux of every moment. 'The Water Lilies' give you a jittery, amorphous sense of a world seen at the speed of light.
The evidence shows that religious people - defined by regular attendance at a place of worship - actually do make better neighbors.
Marriage was defined by God a long time ago. Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve - one man, one woman for life till death do you part. So I would never attempt to try to redefine marriage. And I don't think anyone else should either.
Whole areas of knowledge and information have been defined into nonexistence because the system cannot know, understand, control, or measure them.
Anne Wilson Schaef

You don't need to be defined by your job.
The extent of one man's guilt may be defined by how much of it is experienced by the party he injured.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
