How do you design it so that people can form a space of their own, and feel quiet and contemplative?
Compassion is not defined in one form. There's no Indian compassion. There's no American compassion. It transcends nation, the gender, the age. Why? Because it is there in everybody. It's experienced by people occasionally.
I've heard people say South Africans are arrogant, that they act no differently from their colonial masters. That needs to change. It's in your business interest as an entrepreneur to form meaningful partnerships. That's how you do well for your shareholders.
In a long meter hymn, a singer - they call it 'lays out a line.' And then the whole church joins in in repeating that line. And they form a wall of harmony so tight, you can't wedge a pin between it.
To cut short the question of the law of retaliation, we must note that even in its primitive form it can operate only between two individuals of whom one is absolutely innocent, and the other absolutely guilty. The victim, to be sure, is innocent. But can the society that is supposed to represent the victim lay claim to innocence?
In effect, to follow, not to force the public inclination; to give a direction, a form, a technical dress, and a specific sanction, to the general sense of the community, is the true end of legislature.

The ideal and the beautiful are identical; the ideal corresponds to the idea, and beauty to form; hence idea and substance are cognate.
As far as service goes, it can take the form of a million things. To do service, you don't have to be a doctor working in the slums for free, or become a social worker. Your position in life and what you do doesn't matter as much as how you do what you do.
Men are so necessarily mad, that not to be mad would amount to another form of madness.
Revolution, n. In politics, an abrupt change in the form of misgovernment.
One must bear in mind that the expansion of federal activity is a form of eating for politicians.
William F. Buckley, Jr.
You can tell a more over-the-top incredible story if you use a nonfiction form.
A thousand years may scare form a state. An hour may lay it in ruins.
I first started to sing when I started to talk. As soon as I could form words and sounds together, I was singing.
I would not give half a guinea to live under one form of government other than another. It is of no moment to the happiness of an individual.
Smiles form the channels of a future tear.
To depend upon a profession is a less odious form of slavery than to depend upon a father.
Nothing seems at first sight less important than the outward form of human actions, yet there is nothing upon which men set more store: they grow used to everything except to living in a society which has not their own manners.
Alexis de Tocqueville

Americans are good with to-do lists; just tell us what to do, and we'll do it. Throughout our history, we have proven that. Colonize. Check. Win our independence. Check. Form a union. Check. Expand to the Pacific. Check. Settle the West. Check. Keep the Union together. Check. Industrialize. Check. Fight the Nazis. Check.
Music is a means of giving form to our inner feelings, without attaching them to events or objects in the world.
William Arthur Ward
