So, you have to let that one go.

We cannot possibly let ourselves get frozen into regarding everyone we do not know as an absolute stranger.

Empathy goes a long way, for sure. We cannot have healthy, loving, mutually respectful relationships without it. But we’re not psychic. At least I’m not. And intuition can only take you so far, especially when a person’s sense of safety, comfort, and self-worth hangs in the balance.

John Tyler Bonner
It is easy to dodge our responsibilities, but we cannot dodge the consequences of dodging our responsibilities.

We cannot control what emotions or circumstances we will experience next, but we can choose how we will respond to them.

We had to tell a hero‘s story, and the minute you have too many characters, it will take too much time in a two-hour film. We cannot do justice to each and every character.

I realised I’d spent a lot of time in my poetry trying to find a way of talking about that whereof we cannot speak.

The simple truth of our finiteness is that we could, by whatever means, go on interminably only at the price of either losing the past and, therewith, our identity, or living only in the past and therefore without a real present. We cannot seriously wish either and thus not a physical enduring at that price.

We cannot expect our men and women in uniform to be at their best if they are worried about their spouse and children back home.

Unlike most major American cities, Honolulu is geographically insulated from the rest of the country. When disaster strikes we cannot call on neighboring states for assistance.

Daniel Akaka
We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.

We cannot go up on a wire. We cannot do a search without a judge on the FISA Court approving it and determining that we have met the standard that has been set forth by Congress in order to utilize these techniques.

Yes, we are all different. Different customs, different foods, different mannerisms, different languages, but not so different that we cannot get along with one another. If we will disagree without being disagreeable.

We cannot turn the clock back nor can we undo the harm caused, but we have the power to determine the future and to ensure that what happened never happens again.

In the areas where FGM is going down, it has been addressed in a violence against women framework. It’s a gender power control issue, and it is not something you can just educate people out of. It requires people to think that if they do it, there are ramifications. We cannot just rely on people’s good will.

Efua Dorkenoo
We cannot just rely on the public sector or the private sector. We all need to work together.

I think our politicians are bought by the highest bidder and that until we clean up our election system, then we cannot make progress on any of the issues. That’s what drives me – we must restore our democracy.

In December, I agreed to extend the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans because it was the only way I could prevent a tax hike on middle-class Americans. But we cannot afford $1 trillion worth of tax cuts for every millionaire and billionaire in our society. We can’t afford it. And I refuse to renew them again.

We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves.

Galileo Galilei
There is a direct relationship between how we feel about Jesus Christ and how we see ourselves. We cannot increase our devotion to the Savior without also obtaining a greater sense of purpose, identity, and conviction.

Umberto Guidoni
We cannot forever hide the truth about ourselves, from ourselves.

The clear and present danger of climate change means we cannot burn our way to prosperity. We already rely too heavily on fossil fuels. We need to find a new, sustainable path to the future we want. We need a clean industrial revolution.

We cannot have four more years apologizing to our enemies and abandoning our friends.

I shall suggest, on the contrary, that all communication relies, to a noticeable extent on evoking knowledge that we cannot tell, and that all our knowledge of mental processes, like feelings or conscious intellectual activities, is based on a knowledge which we cannot tell.

Michael Polanyi
Regardless of our political stance, we cannot afford to perpetuate the Western car-centric model.

The fact is we can only love what we know personally. And we cannot know much. In public affairs, in the rebuilding of civilization, something less dramatic and emotional is needed, namely tolerance.

Open-mindedness is considered to be a virtue. But, strictly speaking, it cannot occur. A new experience must be redacted into old categories. We cannot handle each event freshly in its own right. If we did so, of what use would past experience be?

Gordon W Allport
If we desire a society of peace, then we cannot achieve such a society through violence. If we desire a society without discrimination, then we must not discriminate against anyone in the process of building this society. If we desire a society that is democratic, then democracy must become a means as well as an end.

While we can remember the past, we cannot write the future. Only our children, the future of our community, can do that.

We cannot forget about Rachel Maddow. She is the Peter Pan of MSNBC. But instead of never growing up, she never gets to the point.

Somehow, we fall in love with the films and don’t want to let go, but financially and physically, we cannot afford it.

We cannot win this war on terror if people are undercutting us. And one way to undercut us is to empower Iran.

Every time a young girl comes in and asks me for advice, if you start your conversation with, ‘How hard is it as a black woman,’ or, ‘How hard is it as a woman,’ I turn you around. Because I cannot – we cannot look at the roadblocks and see the road at the same time.

We cannot change our past. We can not change the fact that people act in a certain way. We can not change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.

We cannot turn our backs on Europe. We are part of Europe.

We cannot understand our humanity just by studying individuals.

With aging comes physical and emotional challenge. We cannot seem to get as much done in an hour as we did in youth. And it is harder to be patient with others, and they seem more demanding.

We cannot decide on the efficacy of a medical treatment by counting the number of ‘Likes‘ an intervention receives on Facebook; no matter what, professionals will still need to conduct continued clinical trials and evaluate their outcomes carefully.

We cannot learn men from books.

I am undecided whether or not the Milky Way is but one of countless others all of which form an entire system. Perhaps the light from these infinitely distant galaxies is so faint that we cannot see them.

Johann Heinrich Lambert
Painting does what we cannot do – it brings a three-dimensional world into a two-dimensional plane.

We cannot be complacent about the determination of radical Islamic extremists to destroy our freedoms.

The American voter knows that we cannot protect the seas and our interests overseas unless we have ships that can fight and deliver Marines and carrier-based fighter jets to the world’s hot spots.

At any rate, we can see that they are given into our care, that we cannot just do whatever we want with them. Animals, too, are God’s creatures.

We cannot be both the world’s leading champion of peace and the world’s leading supplier of the weapons of war.

Countries are different. They make different choices. We cannot harmonise everything.

We cannot perform our tasks to the best of our power, unless we think well of our own capacity.

We cannot continue leaving teachers behind but expecting them to lead the way for our children.

Since we cannot know all that there is to be known about anything, we ought to know a little about everything.

We cannot have a mayor who does not support pension reform. We cannot have a mayor who will not support managed competition for city services when voters passed it overwhelmingly.

I am not a ‘defender‘ of the September 11 attacks, but simply pointing out that if U.S. foreign policy results in massive death and destruction abroad, we cannot feign innocence when some of that destruction is returned.

Ward Churchill
Wise choices can put us in control of situations where we might otherwise be tempted to compromise our principles. We cannot control all that happens to us; however, we can choose to be in control of our responses.

When we consider the beginning of our life, and compare the same with the eternal life, which we have in the promise, we cannot say nor find that we are at home in this life.

Privatization of the state-owned economy is not yet on the agenda. We cannot do it immediately; my colleagues would not agree to it. But we must put all forms of ownership on an equal footing immediately and let different types of ownership compete with the state firms.

There’s a big difference between France and the U.S. In the U.S., immigrants must work to live. In France, they’re taken care of by public finances. In France, there are millions of unemployed people already. We cannot house them, give them health care, education… finance people who keep coming and coming.

We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection.

When a person from a community goes and buys a car, he or she should have the incentive, financial incentive, to buy a more efficient, more environment-friendly car. This shouldn’t be only left to the intention of the people. We cannot only rely on the ethics or the moral of the people.

Nations have recently been led to borrow billions for war; no nation has ever borrowed largely for education… no nation is rich enough to pay for both war and civilization. We must make our choice; we cannot have both.

Abraham Flexner
Perhaps if we all subscribed to the African concept of Ubuntu – that we all become people through other people, and that we cannot be fully human alone, we could learn a lot. There’d be less hatred and more harmony.

We cannot have a system that everything can be passed on to the final consumer in the garb of cost being recovered without being sensitive to their own problems and affordability.

We cannot build up the idea of the apostolate of the laity without the foundation of the liturgy.

If people have the choice of where they settle in Europe, then we cannot be surprised that they choose to come over here in search of a better life.

Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.

We cannot be sure of having something to live for unless we are willing to die for it.

The world is getting smaller and smaller every day. We cannot find ourselves dependent on somebody who is untrustworthy.

At the end of the day we cannot demonize the police, they are ones who keep us safe in society.

One thing we cannot put a number on is the number of casualties because people were never connected to their purpose in life.

Steve Southerland
We cannot think about playoffs. We just need to play the games.

We cannot turn away because a topic is unpleasant or vile. Why? Because one way to rid our society of evil is to confront it boldly.

We cannot blame globalisation for diluting our cultural heritage and music, as our music is respected more outside India than here.

We can believe we are being self-reliant and independent, and yet there is still clearly an overarching destiny, a Great Maker. So when we say we have faith in ourselves, we cannot really separate the small self from the large self.

One of the things that we have to realize is we cannot get off gas, we cannot get off oil, fossil fuels tomorrow – it’s going to take a few decades. Maybe we can shorten it, but there’s going to have to be a transition time.

In a time of serious budget deficits, immense war costs and a sluggish economy, we cannot afford to grant such outlandish subsidies to some of our Nation’s largest corporations.

Science is objective. And in my view we cannot take any experimental results seriously except in the light of good explanations of them.

David Deutsch
We cannot always oblige; but we can always speak obligingly.

Justice is better than chivalry if we cannot have both.

Alice Stone Blackwell
I am meeting Diaspora Jews all the time, and we are developing programmes to prevent distancing. We have a joint history, but we cannot take matters for granted. Israel is home for all of us, and part of the beauty of the country is its social diversity.

I think our nation cannot stomach the notion of a woman in sexual terms whatsoever: that we are so puritanical that we cannot dismiss the notion of sex from our minds when it comes to women.

We read deeply for varied reasons, most of them familiar: that we cannot know enough people profoundly enough; that we need to know ourselves better; that we require knowledge, not just of self and others, but of the way things are.

We cannot comprehend what comprehends us.

The Italians are very unmusical. If I go to a Protestant church in London or Amsterdam or listen to a black choir, I hear four-part harmony. Italians could never do that. In Italy, we all have to sing the melody because we cannot harmonise.

To those who say Britain cannot afford to invest in infrastructure, I say we cannot afford not to invest in our future.

Every state aspiring to be part of the free world, able to decide its own destiny, deserves its chance. They may, in a not too distant future, contribute to all of us in ways we cannot imagine today.

We cannot stay enveloped in our own reality and turn a blind eye to the plight of others.

In short, we cannot grow, we cannot achieve authentic discovery, and our eyes cannot be cleansed to the truly beautiful possibilities of life, if we simply live a neutral existence.

We cannot be all the writers all the time. We can only be who we are.

Acceptance is so important because we cannot go through this journey alone. I am fortunate to have a very supportive family, but not all trans kids are so lucky. I recommend seeking out a friend or an adult who you think will accept you and telling them how you feel.

Television in itself is a very big platform, and movies are even bigger. So we cannot compare both of them.

As actors, if we are truthful to ourselves and we know what we can do and what we cannot do and just go after it, there are possibilities out there. If you don’t try, you won’t find out if you get them or not.

Navid Negahban
We all desire things that we believe we cannot have, and so my films reflect that again and again. The mystery must be solved, the goal attained.

We cannot conceive of matter being formed of nothing, since things require a seed to start from… Therefore there is not anything which returns to nothing, but all things return dissolved into their elements.

There is no reason inherent in the real resources available to us why we cannot move rapidly within the next two or three years to a state of genuine full employment.

William Vickrey
I don’t think it’s fair that we cannot guarantee every child in this country a great education and that, in New York City, in some cases, your child is at risk in some part because of the policies the union endorses.

Most babies know how to win us over. We cannot help but smile at them and watch them smile back.

Women are not automatically second-class citizens because they live in Islamic countries. We cannot judge the position of women in Islam aright if we take the most conservative Islamic states as representative of the whole.

We cannot always control our thoughts, but we can control our words, and repetition impresses the subconscious, and we are then master of the situation.

As human beings, we are endowed with freedom of choice, and we cannot shuffle off our responsibility upon the shoulders of God or nature. We must shoulder it ourselves. It is our responsibility.

Arnold J Toynbee
We cannot allow the Trump administration to invalidate our nation’s health care law.

Britain is a European power. We cannot change our geography. Our involvement in the politics of European cooperation is one of necessity. Our wealth and our security depend upon it.

There is no one thoroughly despicable. We cannot descend much lower than an idiot; and an idiot has some advantages over a wise man.

Which is why we cannot say of the purloined letter that, like other objects, it must be or not be in a particular place but that unlike them it will be and not be where it is, wherever it goes.

Jacques Lacan
The United States will rightfully go on deploring human rights excesses in the Soviet Union. And it is hardly likely Americans will one day espouse the communist ideology. But nowhere does it say we cannot live in peace with the U.S.S.R. In the nuclear age, there is truly no alternative.

Without a doubt, first thing we should do is clean up our fiscal house, and that starts with balancing our budgets and digging out of this red ink. We cannot expect to continue in this fashion and remain the leader of the free world.

We cannot deny that 80 or even 90 percent of the spiritual treasures from the past 3,000 years have come from Europe. There is no other Greek theatre anywhere else in the world. There is no other Shakespeare, Dante or Cervantes.

We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the game.

Knowledge is knowing that we cannot know.

We cannot separate Judaism from the Jewish State; we have to decide how to live with it.

We cannot accomplish all that we need to do without working together.

We know we cannot plant seeds with closed fists. To sow, we must open our hands.

Adolfo Perez Esquivel
We cannot put off living until we are ready.

We cannot put Connecticut‘s future on the credit card. The state has had a problem putting costs on Connecticut’s credit card that it simply can’t afford to pay.

We cannot despair of humanity, since we ourselves are human beings.

Local Arab partners and the Iraqi government must lead the fight against ISIL. U.S. military advisers are important to this effort, but we cannot be engaged in combat operations. That is why Congress must revoke the previous war authorization and define our appropriate role in defeating ISIL.

In the dim background of mind we know what we ought to be doing but somehow we cannot start.

One of the hardest things to do is to get capital. That’s where we, as black business, struggles. And the other place we struggle is scale, and because we don’t have an access to capital, we cannot scale.

We cannot forget the need to use the law as a shield, but we must remember other forces of the law.

We cannot continue to blow up the federal deficit and place our children and grandchildren in greater debt to countries like China.

We cannot look backwards. What we have to do is raise our heads, look forward, roll up our sleeves and work.

We cannot keep the Jewish state without being a democratic state.

The media does play a vital role in our democracy, and if we cannot depend on journalistic ethics, the nation’s in trouble.

Where we are as a nation is due to having an openness to the people of the world. It’s incredibly important. I firmly believe that we cannot shut our borders to immigrants. I think a fair and just immigration policy is good for our country and good for our society.

We cannot change the politics issue until we change the culture around it; until we talk about what parents do for their kids as an act of love. That’s a cultural conversation.

We have got to move away from the concept of race and color because that is what apartheid is. We cannot end apartheid if we retain these concepts.

Remember, there is nothing we cannot achieve when we work together.

We cannot have the fruits of the gospel without its roots.

Nowhere does our Constitution say we cannot say something about another’s religion. Nowhere does our Constitution say we cannot say anything that offends someone.

If U.S. foreign policy results in massive death and destruction abroad, we cannot feign innocence when some of that destruction is returned.

Ward Churchill
As partisans of our own way of life, we cannot help thinking in a partisan manner.

Gordon W Allport
As Mark Weiner puts it, whether you gain 50 pounds or lose 50 pounds, whether you have a sex change operation for that matter, that it doesn’t matter, that there is some part of ourselves that we cannot escape.

When facing a national crisis, we cannot allow a political vacuum to exist.

If we cannot accurately measure poverty, we surely cannot accurately measure our efforts to tackle it.

When it comes to human dignity, we cannot make compromises.

If we cannot by reason, by influence, by example, by strenuous effort, and by personal sacrifice, mend the bad places of civilization, we certainly cannot do it by force.

Auberon Herbert
We cannot always assure the future of our friends; we have a better chance of assuring our future if we remember who our friends are.

In an age of exponential change, we need the power of diverse thinking, and we cannot afford to leave any talent untapped.

We cannot choose one desktop over the other – Gnome or KDE – because there’s users for both code bases.

Miguel de Icaza
We now know that we cannot continue to put ever-increasing amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere. Actions have consequences. In fact, the consequences of past actions are already in the pipeline. Global temperatures are rising. Glaciers are melting. Sea levels are rising. Extreme weather events are multiplying.

Cary Fowler
We cannot continually barricade ourselves under some falsified idea of race, because our idea of blackness and race is simply reactionary. Africans didn’t walk around Africa being black and proud, they walked around proud.

The United States will always be a global leader, and we need to actively engage the international community to make sure all citizens of the world live freely and equally under their country’s rule of law. We cannot, however, afford to fight other nations’ wars interminably or stabilize their regions.

Utah has benefited from setting smart tax policy. That said, public finding is dynamic enough that we cannot just set the tax policy and presume that it does not require continual review and adjustment.

We cannot have peace if we are only concerned with peace. War is not an accident. It is the logical outcome of a certain way of life. If we want to attack war, we have to attack that way of life.

A J Muste
There is nothing stronger than the American labor movement. United, we cannot and we will not be turned aside. We’ll work for it, sisters and brothers. We’ll stand for it. Together. Each of us. To bring out the best in America. To bring out the best in ourselves, and each other.

Richard Trumka
We cannot comfort ourselves with the idea that young people will take a greater interest in our politics as they establish themselves in a job, in their communities or in their family life.

The people who have impacted the world didn’t live long. Martin Luther King. John F. Kennedy. These people who impact the world were not old people, but they lived so effectively that we cannot erase them from history.

We cannot be any stronger in our foreign policy for all the bombs and guns we may heap up in our arsenals than we are in the spirit which rules inside the country. Foreign policy, like a river, cannot rise above its source.

Adlai Stevenson II
Well, as you’ve said, we cannot expect the people of China not to want to progress, so if you have an opportunity to progress, to develop your economy to a world class economy, it’s an aspiration that is natural and that, I welcome.

Sellapan Ramanathan
People don’t like it, but inevitably we need to think about both the costs and the benefits of health care. We cannot avoid the financial consequences.

Steven Levitt
We cannot continue to close our eyes to the fact that we have to truly embrace green jobs, new technologies and alternative sources of energy.

Luis Fortuno
We cannot blindly pursue the goal of machine intelligence without pondering its consequences.

It is true that in quantum theory we cannot rely on strict causality. But by repeating the experiments many times, we can finally derive from the observations statistical distributions, and by repeating such series of experiments, we can arrive at objective statements concerning these distributions.

Can we ignore what is going on around us, can we disconnect ourselves, our own material situation, our spiritual selves, who we are, can we disconnect that from history and the social context of our lives? The older I get, the more I’m convinced that we cannot, that we are social creatures.

Martin Donovan
In this time of budget cuts, we cannot forget that basic science is a building block for scientific innovation and economic growth in the information age.

As much as I reiterate my affection for Elon, there is nothing Elon does that we cannot do.

We cannot continue to allow immigrants to come here illegally. And in this age of terrorism, we must not let in refugees whose intentions cannot be determined.

We cannot serve the Lord if we don’t have a heart of forgiveness.

As soon as a big amount is involved, the producer looks for a bankable face. No producer will make a Rs 20 crore film starring Rajpal Yadav and Johny Lever, as we cannot pull an entire film on our shoulders. Yet, we do get roles.

Many things we need can wait. The child cannot. Now is the time his bones are formed, his mind developed. To him we cannot say tomorrow, his name is today.

Gabriela Mistral
All over the world copyright holders are trying to limit consumers‘ rights. We cannot have that.

Jon Johansen
We cannot afford all this illegal immigration and everything that comes with it, everything from the crime and to the drugs and the kidnappings and the extortion and the beheadings and the fact that people can’t feel safe in their community. It’s wrong! It’s wrong!

From closing the digital divide to after-school activities and eating well, we cannot afford to ignore the link between deprivation and underachievement.

We cannot just be nonracist. We really do need to be antiracist.

A well-composed book is a magic carpet on which we are wafted to a world that we cannot enter in any other way.

Caroline Gordon
The problem with Muslim women is less that we cannot speak the language, but that no one listens to us.

As American freemen, we cannot but sympathize in all efforts to extend the blessings of civil and political liberty, but at the same time, we are warned by the admonitions of history and the voice of our own beloved Washington to abstain from entangling alliances with foreign nations.

We cannot have a president of the United States that is willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments, Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies.

There are indeed people with ulterior motives who don’t wish Chinese swimming well; they even don’t wish Asian swimming well. We cannot let these people’s plans succeed.

Sun Yang
We cannot sacrifice innocent human life now for vague and exaggerated promises of medical treatments thirty of forty years from now. There are ways to pursue this technology and respect life at the same time.

Basins of attraction, of self organization, show up as well in our complex social environment, in human organizations. Here again, while we cannot predict the result of any given input, we can say that it will likely fall within one of several areas.

We cannot expect to keep our nation’s secrets secure – or provide meaningful oversight for our intelligence agencies – if proper classification of our country’s secrets is as likely as a coin flip.

We cannot put off the difficult decisions for another day, another generation.

Jodi Rell
There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time. There is always something to see, something to hear. In fact, try as we may to make a silence, we cannot.

John Cage
There are cruel, terrible things that happen in this world that are even more traumatizing than the existence of Jeff Sessions. Yes, it can be painful to read about them – but we can never hope to change what we cannot first recognize.

We walk ourselves into ruts so deep we cannot see over them.

Tom Brown Jr
We can no longer stand for the Security Council passing resolutions and then in effect heaving alongside and taking a vacation. We cannot leave it to the secretary general to go cap in hand.

Alex Morrison
Once we know of atrocities we cannot remain silent, and knowledge inevitably leads to an urge to protect the innocent.

We cannot just be a corridor to smuggle minerals out.

We cannot fight new wars with old weapons.

We cannot neglect the unemployed, underemployed and dislocated workers of America who need ample and widespread funding for federal job training services.

I have a funny relationship with religion. I’m a big believer in ritualistic behavior as long as it doesn’t hurt anybody. But I’m not a big fan of rules. And yet, we cannot live in a world without order.

We think that without cooperation with the Russians, we cannot achieve our goals.

Since we cannot change reality, let us change the eyes which see reality.

As Chomsky says here, clearly and in depth, the American empire is doing all it can to consolidate its system of domination. And we cannot allow them to do that. We cannot allow world dictatorship to be consolidated.

Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy.

We do not wish to impoverish the environment any further, and yet we cannot for a moment forget the grim poverty of large numbers of people. Are not poverty and need the greatest polluters?

A world without a proper day of rest is like a landscape without hedgerows, trees, or landmarks: a howling, featureless wilderness in which we incessantly seek pleasure because we cannot find happiness.

It is pretty clear that they are ineffective in stopping the course of thought at present, but they have not always been so in the past and we cannot be sure that they will not be so in the future.

We should be uncomfortable with the growing gaps in our society, and we cannot allow ourselves to become desensitized to these injustices.

Until we fix the deep-rooted problems of economic inequality, we cannot expect young people to experience the best childhood and adolescence.

Providence has its appointed hour for everything. We cannot command results, we can only strive.

Both the country, and my party, are beset with division. We cannot bring the country back together unless the party of government is united, and the party cannot unite if it is led from its fringes.

If we truly are the greatest city in the greatest country on Earth, we cannot fail those facing the greatest need.

We cannot live by power, and a culture that seeks to live by it becomes brutal and sterile. But we can die without it.

Max Lerner
You cannot increase the efficiency of photosynthesis. We improve the performance of farms by irrigating them and fertilizing them to provide all these nutrients. But we cannot keep on doubling the yield every two years. Moore‘s law doesn’t apply to plants.

I have for some time now been deeply troubled by the growing difficulties faced by Christian communities in various parts of the Middle East. It seems to me that we cannot ignore the fact that Christians in the Middle East are increasingly being deliberately targeted by fundamentalist Islamist militants.

I guess I strongly feel that we cannot pretend that the Third World is not part of our world. We cannot say ‘OK, there’s that problem over there, let’s just close our eyes’ – we cannot do that.

We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods. The teaching of the church is clear, and I am a son of the church, but it is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time.

There should be characters and situations that we cannot identify with, that retain either too much horror or too much wonder to allow for simple identification. That feels to me like an accurate depiction of what it is like to be in the world, rather than a neutered register of continual empathy.

And now when we hear that Iran and Iraq plan to cooperate more closely and that a fundamentalist is coming to power in Tehran – a man about whom we cannot be sure that he is absolutely averse to terrorism – it is very worrisome.

Today, energy prices are at historic highs. Some analysts estimate that energy price shocks this year could cost American consumers more than $40 billion. Speaking very frankly, we cannot afford this kind of expense.

Jeff Bingaman
Fundamentalists are panicked by the apparent disintegration of the family, the disappearance of certainty and the decay of morality. Fear leads them to ask, if we cannot trust the Bible, what can we trust?

We cannot police our way to public safety.

We cannot have Derby County going the same way as Macclesfield and Bury. That would be a stain on English football. It simply cannot be allowed to happen.

We cannot ‘fix’ the police without a revolution of values and radical change to the basic structure of our society.

We cannot uphold the rule of law only when it is consistent with our beliefs. We must uphold it even when it protects behavior that we don’t like or is unattractive or is not admirable or that might even be hurtful.

Cheryl Mills
It’s wonderful to move forward technologically, but we cannot forget that we are human beings who thrive on relationships, who thrive on interconnectivity, who thrive on sharing your feelings and emotions.

We cannot allow American taxpayers to foot the bill for tax revenue grabs in Europe and elsewhere.

We cannot have players who don’t give their soul.

Religion is the most important of all things: the great point of discrimination that divides the man from the brute. It is our special prerogative that we can converse with that which we cannot see and believe in that the existence of which is reported to us by none of our senses.

While we cannot predict the future, we will most surely live it. Every action and decision we take – or don’t – ripples into the future. For the first time, we have the capability, the technology, and the knowledge to direct those ripples.

Louisiana‘s coast is disappearing at an alarming rate, but we cannot ignore the important role the offshore energy industry plays in breathing life into Louisiana’s economy.

There is too much disagreement for disagreement’s sake. In a time of persistent challenges that still call into question our most sacred aspirations as a country, we cannot afford shallow callous divisiveness in our public debate.

We cannot allow situations where leaders threaten war on television or on Twitter.

Logic must look after itself. In a certain sense, we cannot make mistakes in logic.

We cannot afford to have a president who thinks he’s some sort of global community organizer standing over America on one side and our adversaries on the other. America must have a Commander in Chief. Not a global community organizer.

Liz Cheney
We cannot afford to weaponize race.

The writer, the poet, the novelist, are all creators. This does not mean that they invent language; it means that they use language to create beauty, ideas, images. This is why we cannot do without them.

J M G Le Clezio
It is important that we relish the food we eat. If we cannot do this, but eat mechanically, our food does not do us that good it should, and we fail to be nourished and built up by it as we otherwise would be, if we could enjoy the food we take into the stomach.

We cannot build foundations of a state without rule of law.

The United States needs to be far clearer: we cannot and will not support any government where Hamas has a real influence and the security forces stop fighting terror.

We cannot solve the STEM gender gap without solving it for millennials. They’re our first digital natives, and they’re willing to learn quickly.

We cannot sacrifice our humanity in the name of security – or we risk losing both.

Perhaps there is only one cardinal sin: impatience. Because of impatience we were driven out of Paradise, because of impatience we cannot return.

We cannot compare Marathi cinema industry with other regional industries or even Hindi industry. It will be unfair for us. Every industry takes time to evolve.

We cannot afford to have the confidence of the public, victims, and witnesses in our justice system undermined because the wrong people are being found guilty and the real criminals are wandering the streets.

We cannot really communicate with our fans.

Hunter Tylo
We cannot attribute to fortune or virtue that which is achieved without either.

We cannot be unclean and expect the help of the Almighty.

Although I believe deeply that the Children’s Health Insurance Program and the Community Health Center program are invaluable, I reject the notion that we cannot reauthorize these programs without plundering other equally vital programs.

We have to get it into our heads once and for all that we cannot settle disputes by eliminating human beings.

Jeannette Rankin
We cannot give our students all that they expect, whether by way of the quality of their schooling or by way of the jobs that they were hoping to get. Student frustration is a worldwide phenomenon, pushing our societies into adjusting faster than they are used to.

Arthur Lewis
Unless we form the habit of going to the Bible in bright moments as well as in trouble, we cannot fully respond to its consolations because we lack equilibrium between light and darkness.

Without accepting the fact that everything changes, we cannot find perfect composure. Unfortunately, although it is true, it is difficult for us to accept it. Because we cannot accept the truth of transience, we suffer.

Shunryu Suzuki
We are more than just flesh and bones. There’s a certain spiritual nature and something of the mind that we can’t measure. We can’t find it. With all our sophisticated equipment, we cannot monitor or define it, and yet it’s there.

We cannot afford to walk down that dangerous path of government overstepping its boundaries into the most personal parts of our lives.

We cannot shirk responsibility from concerns for the welfare of the next generation.

I think that we have been able to demonstrate that we cannot just consume software, that we can create software that can be used all over the world, that we have that kind of talent in Africa.

Left to their own devices, the Tories will squash the life out of what Brexit really represents in terms of the chance to shake up political life and overturn a complacent status quo. We cannot let that happen.

We cannot therefore say that mental acts contain a cognitive as well as a conative element.

We cannot expect systemic success when our teachers are underpaid and under-resourced, or when they split time being caretakers and counselors for our children as well.

We cannot afford idleness, waste or inefficiency.

Eamon de Valera
Whenever I don’t have anything to do, I play Candy Crush or Scrabble. We actors have time between shots, which we need to kill. And we cannot call friends or family, as you are called at a moment’s notice. So you need to do something which you can dispose of immediately when called for a shot.

We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails.

Alabama’s Black Belt region played a central role in both the history of our great state and our country. We cannot lose sight of the Black Belt’s significant impact in the civil rights movement and the fact that this area is home to some of our state’s most celebrated cultural figures.

We cannot wait for governments to do it all. Globalization operates on Internet time. Governments tend to be slow moving by nature, because they have to build political support for every step.

We cannot stop the winter or the summer from coming. We cannot stop the spring or the fall or make them other than they are. They are gifts from the universe that we cannot refuse. But we can choose what we will contribute to life when each arrives.

Local school districts should be free to adapt their academic programs in ways appropriate for their community, but we cannot allow mindless budget shortfalls to force wrongheaded changes to our children’s education.

We cannot do justice to the deeds of former times if we do not in some degree remove ourselves from the circumstances in which we stand and substitute those by which the real actors were surrounded.

Here we stand in the middle of this new world with our primitive brain, attuned to the simple cave life, with terrific forces at our disposal, which we are clever enough to release, but whose consequences we cannot comprehend.

Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
We cannot afford four more years of this misguided socialist policies from President Obama and his administration.

We know no one is perfect, but what we cannot tolerate, what we will never accept, is a person or company that knows dangers exists and says nothing – literally, silence can kill.

Even though this is late in an election year, there is no way we can go forward except together and no way anybody can win except by serving the people’s urgent needs. We cannot stand still or slip backwards. We must go forward now together.

This is a day of little faith – of few convictions – a day when men seem to have no great causes and no great passions. So in frustration, in disappointment, they are inclined to say, ‘You can’t change human nature.’ It is true that we cannot change human nature. But God can.

It is claimed, but with what truth we cannot say, that there is a well-defined propaganda among the aliens of colour to bring about the degeneration of the white race.

Emily Murphy
Without accepting the fact that everything changes, we cannot find perfect composure. But unfortunately, although it is true, it is difficult for us to accept it. Because we cannot accept the truth of transience, we suffer.

Shunryu Suzuki
We cannot stop senseless violence without the rule of law and security forces that represent and respect every segment of society.

I understand the protests, but not the shooting and the attempts to bring down the state. We cannot allow hatred to control our lives. We must remain unified to defeat this evil.

Boris Trajkovski
The partnerships between Schmidt and Giscard, Kohl and Mitterrand, and even between Chirac and Schroeder, have proved that political differences do not mean that we cannot work together.

I understand that we cannot make other people happy when they are unhappy.

Russia is a very different place than what we in the West are familiar with. We cannot apply our own values and judgments to the country. We need to have greater compassion and understanding and recognize that our similarities are greater than our differences.

Perspective gives us the ability to accurately contrast the large with the small, and the important with the less important. Without it we are lost in a world where all ideas, news, and information look the same. We cannot differentiate, we cannot prioritize, and we cannot make good choices.

It is my view that we cannot conduct foreign policy at the extremes.

There has to be a national consensus. We cannot legislate without overwhelming national consensus that religious and communal groups should be totally banned from politics.

We cannot leave history entirely to nonclinical observers and to professional historians.

Erik Erikson
I fear human beings, because we cannot predict the swings of a human being. They are capable of doing anything. I really fear that.

Scotland is not a region of the U.K.; Scotland is a nation, and if we cannot protect our interests within a U.K. that is going to be changing fundamentally, then that right of Scotland to consider the options of independence has to be there.

Whatever your views on Pakistan, our effort was that we have to engage Pakistan. They are our neighbours. We can choose our friends, but we cannot choose our neighbours.

Without words to objectify and categorize our sensations and place them in relation to one another, we cannot evolve a tradition of what is real in the world.

Ruth Hubbard
God exists since mathematics is consistent, and the Devil exists since we cannot prove it.

Andre Weil
I believe Europe is burning financially. Europe’s problems are not going to go away. They are so structural. Yet, our problems are right behind them. We cannot just look at Europe.

We cannot keep on carrying burdens of the past and keep ruining our future.

We do not believe in immortality because we can prove it, but we try to prove it because we cannot help believing it.

Harriet Martineau
Some people cling to the belief that the Civil War was fought over states’ rights. But history is not on their side. We cannot continue to glorify a war against the United States of America fought in the defense of slavery.

I mean simply to say that I want my characters to suggest the background in themselves, even when it is not visible. I want them to be so powerfully realized that we cannot imagine them apart from their physical and social context even when we see them in empty space.

Michelangelo Antonioni
Because we cannot know what God is, but only what He is not, we cannot consider how He is but only how He is not.

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

In difficult times, it’s important to speak up. We cannot change the past, but we can impact the future.

Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future.

I’m looking forward to working for the ‘Tribune’ because any company that can invest in the Chicago Cubs has a view of the future we cannot begin to comprehend.

Jeff MacNelly
We cannot leave the Central Africans abandoned. Everyone needs to be mobilized to help this country build a future that Central Africans deserve.

It is dangerous for mortal beauty, or terrestrial virtue, to be examined by too strong a light. The torch of Truth shows much that we cannot, and all that we would not, see.

We cannot afford to lose any more people as a result of hatred.

We will have to accept a certain degree of legal immigration; that’s globalisation… In the era of the smartphone, we cannot shut ourselves away… people know full well how we live in Europe.

We cannot improve on the system of government handed down to us by the founders of the Republic. There is no way to improve upon that. But what we can do is to find new ways to implement that system and realize our destiny.

For more than two centuries, the defenders of liberty have put their lives on the line, because they have known that we cannot take our freedoms for granted.

As Russia, China, and Iran work overtime to destroy us, we cannot afford to have our military’s best and brightest on the sidelines because their own Commander-in-Chief has waged war on their rights.

There is no such thing as immaterial matter. All spirit is matter, but is more fine or pure, and can only be discerned by purer eyes. We cannot see it, but when our bodies are purified, we shall see that it is all matter.

The fight for freedom must go on until it is won; until our country is free and happy and peaceful as part of the community of man, we cannot rest.

We are very anxious to bring the Jews of Morocco over and we are doing all we can to achieve this. But we cannot count on the Jews of Morocco alone to build the country, because they have not been educated for this.

I think the female gaze is important because we cannot have just one perspective on anything.

The problem for many people is that we cannot point to the underlying biological bases of most psychiatric disorders. In fact, we are nowhere near understanding them as well as we understand disorders of the liver or the heart.

As an already high-demand, low-density military asset, we cannot afford to lose the JSTARS’s BMC2/ISR unparalleled capability.

We cannot have that relationship if we only dictate or threaten and condemn those who disagree.

We cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are.

Max de Pree
We are all human, and we are all able to listen to music that we cannot understand. I used to listen to English music like Notorious B.I.G., and I didn’t know what he’s talking about in all of his tracks, but I’m a fan. It’s rhythm and a groove that makes me dance, so I’m convinced that my music can work in the U.S.

But, when Scripture makes a clear distinction between the act of creation and the process of preservation, we cannot accept the idea of a progressive creation process.

The final test for a novel will be our affection for it, as it is the test of our friends, and of anything else which we cannot define.

We cannot let another person into our hearts or minds unless we empty ourselves. We can truly listen to him or truly hear her only out of emptiness.

One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.

We cannot all be great, but we can always attach ourselves to something that it great.

We have to forget about the games we lost because we cannot change the results.

We cannot afford to fight our neighbor, even if we disagree on many things.

Your children live or die without you. No matter what we do, no matter how we agonize or obsess, we cannot choose for our children whether they live or die. It’s a devastating realization, but liberating.

If we are born under a lucky star, it shows that we have earned the good fortune thereby Indicated, by forethought, kindness, and our other virtues expressed in previous lives, for we cannot have friends unless we are friendly ourselves.

We cannot reform institutional racism or systemic policies if we are not actively engaged. It’s not enough to simply complain about injustice; the only way to prevent future injustice is to create the society we would like to see, one where we are all equal under the law.

Knowledge is not eating, and we cannot expect to devour and possess what we mean. Knowledge is recognition of something absent; it is a salutation, not an embrace.
