The sculptor produces the beautiful statue by chipping away such parts of the marble block as are not needed - it is a process of elimination.
The test of the artist does not lie in the will with which he goes to work, but in the excellence of the work he produces.
Without struggle, no progress and no result. Every breaking of habit produces a change in the machine.
Burning carbon-based substances like oil, gas, and especially coal, produces billions of tons of extra carbon dioxide each year. Methane gas from cows and pigs and other animals on our large farms ends up in the atmosphere as well, trapping more of the sun's energy as heat.
Injustice in the end produces independence.
So much of the world's suffering results from the sinful action or inaction of ourselves and others. For example, people look at a famine and wonder where God is, but the world produces enough food for each person to have 3,000 calories a day. It's our own irresponsibility and self-centeredness that prevents people from getting fed.
To say that gender is performative is a little different because for something to be performative means that it produces a series of effects. We act and walk and speak and talk in ways that consolidate an impression of being a man or being a woman.
There is no greater feeling in business than building a product which impacts people's lives in a profound way. When we look around at the thousands of people who have attended Summit gatherings, it makes us smile to see the new friendships, business partnerships and philanthropic initiatives that each event produces.
Given the fact that we are in a capitalist society, we still do not want to overlook not only what a corporation produces and its profitability but also how it impacts the environment, touches human life and whether it protects or undermines the dignity of the human person.
I do not literally paint that table, but the emotion it produces upon me.
Every work of art is the child of its age and, in many cases, the mother of our emotions. It follows that each period of culture produces an art of its own which can never be repeated.
Successful prime-time television of any genre produces some kind of emotional reaction in the viewers. There are a lot of different emotions to tap into. The emotion of the reward of discovery, the feeling of righteous anger, the feelings of pathos and sadness, or sentimentality of being moved by something.
In modern life nothing produces such an effect as a good platitude. It makes the whole world kin.
Chaos is a name for any order that produces confusion in our minds.
Yet, while producing increasingly selfish people, the mantra of the Left, and therefore of the universities and the media, has been for generations that capitalism and the free market, not the welfare state, produces selfish people.
Architecture is a art when one consciously or unconsciously creates aesthetic emotion in the atmosphere and when this environment produces well being.
Science consistently produces a new crop of miraculous truths and dazzling devices every year.
I'm Greek. My body produces feta cheese.
With the brush we merely tint, while the imagination alone produces colour.
Working against a restriction - for me - often produces greater things than getting rid of all boundaries.
Our pool is outdoors, but it's heated, and I've got one of those machines that produces waves you have to swim against; like a jogging treadmill, really, only it's in water. Basically, it means you can have a small pool, swim for miles, and get nowhere.
Pain always produces logic, which is very bad for you.
Family is very important to me because that is the footprint we perpetuate. That is, the ripple in the water when the rock first impacts the pool, and it is those waves, that energy that one produces, that determines our direction.
The instant formal government is abolished, society begins to act. A general association takes place, and common interest produces common security.
Fashion is something barbarous, for it produces innovation without reason and imitation without benefit.
John F. Kennedy
