To admit you want to have a comeback means you have to admit you weren't what you were supposed to be. You dropped below your own standard.
When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.
Jean de la Bruyere
Television is just one more facet of that considerable segment of our society that never had any standard but the soft buck.
I refuse to accept other people's ideas of happiness for me. As if there's a 'one size fits all' standard for happiness.
We are all different. There is no such thing as a standard or run-of-the-mill human being, but we share the same human spirit.
You must make women count as much as men; you must have an equal standard of morals; and the only way to enforce that is through giving women political power so that you can get that equal moral standard registered in the laws of the country. It is the only way.
Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody expects of you. Never excuse yourself.
Henry Ward Beecher
People have a moral standard about what they will do and will not do. At the end of the day someone who cheats has a lower moral standard than someone who does not. And they will cheat in other areas of life as well.
I'm not saying that atheists can't act morally or have moral knowledge. But when I ascribe virtue to an atheist, it's as a theist who sees the atheist as conforming to objective moral values. The atheist, by contrast, has no such basis for morality. And yet all moral judgments require a basis for morality, some standard of right and wrong.
William A. Dembski
Let us raise a standard to which the wise and honest can repair; the rest is in the hands of God.
Women who stay true to themselves are always more interesting and beautiful to me: women like Frida Kahlo, Georgia O'Keeffe and Anna Magnani - women who have style, chic, allure and elegance. They didn't submit to any standard of beauty - they defined it.

Once you've lived the inside-out world of espionage, you never shed it. It's a mentality, a double standard of existence.
John le Carre

B. R. Ambedkar
