I think the definition of a book is changing.
I think it's best if there's an amendment that goes on the ballot where the people can weigh in. Every time this issue has gone on the ballot, the people have voted to retain the traditional definition of marriage as recently as California in 2008.
If there are only three guys at the top of the organization handling things, it's the definition of a bankrupt company. In creating leaders without titles, we are going to have organizations with people at the helm putting forth their best.
Robin S. Sharma
Syria is a terrorist state by any definition and is so classified by the State Department. I happen to think Iran is too. Iraq, Iran, Syria, they're all involved.
With its fluctuating forms and needless decoration, fashion epitomizes the supposedly unproductive waste that inspired 20th-century technocrats to dream of central planning. It exists for no good reason. But that's practically a definition of art.
My parents did not have a perfect marriage. It was pretty good, but it was not perfect. My marriage is not perfect. My wife is, but I happen to be imperfect. However, that does not discount the fact that the definition of marriage must be defended and protected.
I'm a textbook definition of that perfectionist girl who has huge expectations of herself.
Look up the definition of rejection in the dictionary, get really comfortable with it, and then maybe you can go into acting.
To me the definition of true masculinity - and femininity, too - is being able to lay in your own skin comfortably.
If you consider the definition of authenticity, it's saying something and actually doing it. I write my own songs. I made my own videos. I pick my producers. Nothing goes out without my permission. It's all authentic.
Lana Del Rey
Teenagers ultimately don't mind belonging to a group, because there's always the opportunity to eventually become someone new. The elderly, by definition, are running out of opportunities for reinvention.
The definition of a modern approach to war is the acknowledgement of individual lives lost.
Well, my definition of a tragedy is a clash between right and right.
Personally, I don't like the term 'success.' It's too arbitrary and too relative a thing. It's usually someone else's definition, not yours.
Definition, rationality, and structure are ways of seeing, but they become prisons when they blank out other ways of seeing.
A. R. Ammons
Definition of a Statistician: A man who believes figures don't lie, but admits than under analysis some of them won't stand up either.
By definition, sacred beings are separated beings. That which characterizes them is that there is a break of continuity between them and the profane beings.
If you embrace 'positive thinking,' you are - by definition - spurning 'negative thinking.' So it's as if you were on a teeter-totter and are trying desperately to put all your weight on one side - the 'positive thinking' side.
Politicians are nauseating by definition... They can produce nothing, neither a loaf of bread nor a table nor a picture; and this inability to create value, this total inferiority, makes them jealous, vengeful, insolent and a menace to life and limb.
There are no good or bad habits. All habits are, by definition, bad.
Twins are a high-risk pregnancy, by definition. The quieter I am, the longer I can keep them growing.
By definition, I believe I am unapologetically optimistic and I am unapologetically earnest.
I define power as 'control over one's life.' A balanced life is far superior to the male definition of power: earning money someone else spends while he dies sooner.
Finally there are simple ideas of which no definition can be given; there are also axioms or postulates, or in a word primary principles, which cannot be proved and have no need of proof.
Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of the definition of a marriage as between one man and one woman.
C. S. Lewis
John F. Kennedy
