In 1949, China declared independence - an event known in Western discourse as 'the loss of China' in the U.S. - with bitter recriminations and conflict over who was responsible for that loss.
Figure skating is an unlikely Olympic event but its good television. It's sort of a combination of gymnastics and ballet. A little sexy too which doesn't hurt.
So many things happen for every event, and if you try to manipulate it, it means you are struggling against the whole universe, and that's just silly.
Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on.
The wisest prophets make sure of the event first.
There is nothing that I shudder at more than the idea of a separation of the Union. Should such an event ever happen, which I fervently pray God to avert, from that date I view our liberty gone.
If you are still being hurt by an event that happened to you at twelve, it is the thought that is hurting you now.
I grew up in the Holiness Church, where prayer was an event.
The literal resurrection of every soul who has lived and died on earth is a certainty, and surely one should make careful preparation for this event. A glorious resurrection should be the goal of every man and woman, for resurrection will be a reality.
Ezra Taft Benson
The world of crime is a last refuge of the authentic, uncorrupted, spontaneous event.
Daniel J. Boorstin
I love the opportunity to wear something really special and go to a wonderful event at some great cultural institution.
Sarah Jessica Parker
For a long time I was convinced that the conflict between Jewish people and black people in this country was a media event.
The actual tragedies of life bear no relation to one's preconceived ideas. In the event, one is always bewildered by their simplicity, their grandeur of design, and by that element of the bizarre which seems inherent in them.
A self-fulfilling prophecy is an assumption or prediction that, purely as a result of having been made, cause the expected or predicted event to occur and thus confirms its own 'accuracy.'
Since 9/11, the Bush administration has used that tragic event as a justification to rip up our constitution and our civil liberties. And I honestly believe that one or two 9/11s, and martial law will be declared in our country and we're inching towards a police state.
The most important event I covered was the Panama Canal debate, which dragged on for months.
An act of goodness is of itself an act of happiness. No reward coming after the event can compare with the sweet reward that went with it.
Most of the books that I've written have been focused on, sort of, the individual, and sort of, either a voice, a personal voice, or a kind of transforming event where they step forward to fight for something they value.
The future of humanity is going to bifurcate in two directions: Either it's going to become multiplanetary, or it's going to remain confined to one planet and eventually there's going to be an extinction event.
Christmas is far and away my favorite holiday. I love everything about it, from the event that inspired it, hoping for a white one, to wrapping presents. But mostly I love having family and friends gathered, and sharing traditions.
I love the Olympic Games. The Olympics are an event that few can fathom but all can enjoy, and that's why athletes work our whole lives to put on the greatest show on Earth.
Consider the momentous event in architecture when the wall parted and the column became.
I'm really disappointed at every event if I don't do less than what I wanted to do.
Our thoughts about an event can have a dramatic effect on how we go through the event itself. When our expectations are low, it's easy to be pleasantly surprised. When they're not, we're vulnerable to painful disappointment. Because of this, many people spend a good deal of effort trying to avoid developing high hopes about anything.
Every relationship that we have in our lives - our contact with each person, place, and event - serves a very special, if yet to be realized purpose: They are mirrors that can serve to show us things about ourselves that can be realized in no other way.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
