Growing up human is uniquely a matter of social relations rather than biology. What we learn from connections within the family takes the place of instincts that program the behavior of animals; which raises the question, how good are these connections?
Infidelity raises profound questions about intimacy.
In addressing a task, one almost always has several possible options, sometimes only a few, and they may all be practical and functional. But they lack the aesthetic aspect that raises it to architecture.
Say a child raises this beautiful beet. It's going to give her a sense of ownership, and that changes everything. You stop taking things for granted; you become less wasteful.
Any father whose son raises his hand against him is guilty of having produced a son who raised his hand against him.
Charity separates the rich from the poor; aid raises the needy and sets him on the same level with the rich.
What really raises one's indignation against suffering is not suffering intrinsically, but the senselessness of suffering.
Art raises its head where creeds relax.
When a book raises your spirit, and inspires you with noble and manly thoughts, seek for no other test of its excellence. It is good, and made by a good workman.
Jean de la Bruyere
Fortune raises up and fortune brings low both the man who fares well and the one who fares badly; and there is no prophet of the future for mortal men.
I traveled the state of Florida for two years campaigning. I have never met a job creator who told me that they were waiting for the next tax increase before they started growing their business. I've never met a single job creator who's ever said to me I can't wait until government raises taxes again so I can go out and create a job.
When a member of the House moves over to the Senate, he raises the IQ of both bodies.
Unlike fuel-economy standards, the most common method of reducing demand for oil over the past thirty years, a gas tax doesn't tell people what kind of car to drive. It simply raises the price of gasoline and lets people adjust their behavior accordingly.
The Go Red for Women campaign raises awareness of the risk of heart disease. I think a lot of people don't realize that heart disease is the number one killer of women. So what we're doing is encouraging women to tell five other women to learn more about heart disease and how they can prevent it.
My acting range has always been something between the two extremes of 'raises left eyebrow' and 'raises right eyebrow.'
Grades are almost completely relative, in effect ranking students relative to others in their class. Thus extra achievement by one student not only raises his position, but in effect lowers the position of others.
James S. Coleman
Engel & Volkers is unlike any other real estate company I have known and I am proud to be part of an organization that raises the bar to such high levels.
The bar raises as you go.
William H. Macy
Live Below the Line raises real money to help the world's poorest people, but it is also a symbolic demonstration aimed at highlighting - not replicating - the plight of the world's poor.
I adopt a very simple approach. I observe and reflect real life and ordinary people and sooner or later that raises a laugh.
In speech after speech on his health care plan, the President has tried to convince us that what he is proposing will be good for America. But, how can it be good for America if it raises taxes by a half trillion dollars and costs a trillion dollars or more to implement?
Women are often meeker in meetings and afraid to ask for raises and promotions. I've told countless female colleagues to stop apologizing when they ask for more. It's not personal, it's business.
It's the opinion of some that crops could be grown on the moon; which raises the fear that it may not be long before we're paying somebody not to.
Franklin P. Jones
Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' is a magnificent science-fiction film, all the more intriguing because it raises questions about the origin of human life and doesn't have the answers.
Trade has played a vital role in the social evolution of humankind. It allowed people to specialise, which raises both skill levels and efficiency. It brought people from different lands together, co-operating rather than competing over resources.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
