Favorite Canis Quotes

1. "I don't see much future for the Americans ... it's a decayed country. And they have their racial problem, and the problem of social inequalities ... my feelings against Americanism are feelings of hatred and deep repugnance ... everything about the behaviour of American society reveals that it's half Judaised, and the other half negrified. How can one expect a State like that to hold together?"
Author: Adolf Hitler
2. "-Ustedes no han comprendido todavía-observó Rambert alzando los hombros.-¿Qué?-La peste.- ¡Ah! -dijo Rieux.-No, ustedes no han comprendido que su mecanismo es recomenzar."
Author: Albert Camus
3. "O sistema de produção privada manipula e intoxica o consumidor. Por requintados mecanismos de alienação publicitários, as aspirações e normas de comportamento das populações são controladas e integradas no sistema. Cria artificialmente, necessidades, modas, marcas, legendas, códigos sociais. O sistema de objectos é organizado como uma linguagem cujas leis nos são impostas pelos mestres do jogo económico, redundando tudo num grande desperdício colectivo, em prejuízo da satisfação de, por vezes, bem evidentes necessidades sociais."
Author: Amílcar Amorim
4. "La depressione è un'incrinatura dell'amore. Per essere capaci di amare dobbiamo essere capaci di disperarci per ciò che perdiamo e la depressione è il meccanismo con cui esprimiamo questa disperazione. Quando sopravviene, distrugge il nostro sé e finisce per annullare la capacità di donare e di ricevere affetto. È la solitudine interiore, che si manifesta e annienta non solo il legame con gli altri, ma anche la capacità di restare serenamente soli con se stessi."
Author: Andrew Solomon
5. "Americanism demands loyalty to the teacher and respect for his lesson."
Author: Bainbridge Colby
6. "Those who seek absolute power, even though they seek it to do what they regard as good, are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth. And let me remind you, they are the very ones who always create the most hellish tyrannies. Absolute power does corrupt, and those who seek it must be suspect and must be opposed. Their mistaken course stems from false notions of equality, ladies and gentlemen. Equality, rightly understood, as our founding fathers understood it, leads to liberty and to the emancipation of creative differences. Wrongly understood, as it has been so tragically in our time, it leads first to conformity and then to despotism. Fellow Republicans, it is the cause of Republicanism to resist concentrations of power, private or public, which enforce such conformity and inflict such despotism. It is the cause of Republicanism to ensure that power remains in the hands of the people."
Author: Barry M. Goldwater
7. "Y entonces pienso que, si el mundo es un gran mecanismo, tiene que haber alguna razón para que yo esté en él."
Author: Brian Selznick
8. "A volte la sera vengo qui anche se non devo regolare gli orologi, solo per guardare la città. Mi piace immaginare che il mondo sia un unico grande meccanismo. Sai, le macchine non hanno pezzi in più. Hanno esattamente il numero e il tipo di pezzi che servono. Così io penso che se il mondo è una grande macchina, io devo essere qui per qualche motivo. E anche tu."
Author: Brian Selznick
9. "Parties in our Government have no better idea than to think the Republic stands all the firmer upon opposition; but I say that it is not so. A republican government consists in letting the people rule by their united voice, without a dissension,--in learning what is for the best, and unitedly doing it. That is true republicanism."
Author: Brigham Young
10. "Il cuore di una donna è un meccanismo complesso, insensibile ai rozzi ragionamenti del maschio avventuriero. Se si vuole davvero possedere una donna, bisogna imparare a pensare come lei. Tutto il resto, il morbido involucro che ti fa perdere la ragione e l'onore, viene di conseguenza."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
11. "La mente humana tiene un primitivo mecanismo de defensa que niega cualquier realidad que provoque un estrés excesivo al cerebro. Se llama negación"."
Author: Dan Brown
12. "Americanism is not a matter of skin or color."
Author: Daniel Inouye
13. "Sophia was asked to speak to the students of a local medical school. "Sophia, what do we need to be better doctors?" the students asked. "Doctors," Sophia said, "need strong stomachs and strong powers of observation." Then she opened a canister. The putrid smell quickly moved through the classroom. Sophia stuck a finger in the jar, pulled it up, and then licked it. She passed the jar around encouraging each doctor in training to do the same. Each did, and though many felt nauseas, no one got sick. "You all have very strong stomachs," she said. "But your powers of observation need some work." "What do you mean?" they asked. "We did just what you did." "There is one difference," she replied. "The finger I dipped in the jar was not the finger I licked."
Author: David W. Jones
14. "Anti-Americanism from abroad would not be such a problem if Americans were united in standing up for their own country."
Author: Dinesh D'Souza
15. "If you describe yourself as "Atheist," some people will say, "Don't you mean 'Agnostic'?" I have to reply that I really do mean Atheist. I really do not believe that there is a god - in fact I am convinced that there is not a god (a subtle difference). I see not a shred of evidence to suggest that there is one. It's easier to say that I am a radical Atheist, just to signal that I really mean it, have thought about it a great deal, and that it's an opinion I hold seriously. It's funny how many people are genuinely surprised to hear a view expressed so strongly. In England we seem to have drifted from vague wishy-washy Anglicanism to vague wishy-washy Agnosticism - both of which I think betoken a desire not to have to think about things too much."
Author: Douglas Adams
16. "As for Republicanism, no analogy could be found for it upon the face of the earth—unless we except the case of the "prairie dogs," an exception which seems to demonstrate, if anything, that democracy is a very admirable form of government—for dogs."
Author: Edgar Allan Poe
17. "Se se suprimissem a muitos amores as guarnições da literatura, a cópia dos gestos, os motivos do útil, os mecanismos do hábito, encontrar-se-ia como único e verdadeiro fundamento, a avidez do coito. O homem é um varrão que se envergonha da sua suinidade."
Author: Giovanni Papini
18. "Smettila di tormentarti tanto. Ogni cosa segue comunque il suo corso, e per quanto uno possa fare del suo meglio, a volte è impossibile evitare che qualcuno rimanga ferito. È la vita. Faccio un po' il grillo parlante ma è ora che tu cominci a imparare certi meccanismi della vita. A volte tu ti sforzi troppo di adattare la vita ai tuoi meccanismi. Se non vuoi finire anche tu in una clinica psichiatrica cerca di essere un po' più aperto e di abbandonarti di più alla vita così come viene. Anche una donna debole e imperfetta come me ogni tanto arriva a rendersi conto di quanto meravigliosa sia la vita."
Author: Haruki Murakami
19. "The combination of Federalism and Republicanism which formed the substance of the system, did not constitute a progressive and formative political principle, but it pointed in the direction of a constructive formula."
Author: Herbert Croly
20. "La burocrazia è un gigantesco meccanismo azionato da pigmei"."
Author: Honoré De Balzac
21. "[To] explain the phenomena of the mineral kingdom ... systems are usually reduced to two classes, according as they refer to the origin of terrestrial bodies to FIRE or to WATER; and ... their followers have of late been distinguished by the fanciful names of Vulcanists and Neptunists. To the former of these Dr HUTTON belongs much more than to the latter; though, as he employs the agency both of fire and water in his system, he cannot, in strict propriety, be arranged with either."
Author: HUTTON
22. "Înfrânt se simte orice om când îsi vede mecanismul existential demontat si azvârlit într-un vraf de piese, care, detasate de complicatul lor ansamblu, devin niste jalnice rotite, suruburi si piulite, pe care nu mai dai nici doua parale."
Author: Ileana Vulpescu
23. "Il y a quelque chose de coincé dans le mécanisme"
Author: Jean Paul Sartre
24. "My dear nephew was only in his sixth year when I came to be detached from the family circle. But this did not hinder John and I from remaining the most affectionate friends, and many a half or whole holiday he was allowed to spend with me, was dedicated to making experiments in chemistry, where generally all boxes, tops of tea-canisters, pepper-boxes, teacups, &c., served for the necessary vessels, and the sand-tub furnished the matter to be analysed. I only had to take care to exclude water, which would have produced havoc on my carpet."
Author: John
25. "When you go out hunting wicked spirits, it's the simple things that matter most. The silvered point of your rapier flashing in the dark; the iron filings scattered on the floor; the sealed canisters of best Greek Fire, ready as a last resort... But tea bags, brown and fresh and plenty of them, and made (for preference) by Pitkin Brothers of Bond Street, are perhaps the simplest and best of all. OK, they may not save your life like a sword-tip or an iron circle can, and they haven't the protective power of a sudden wall of fire. But they do provide something just as vital. They help keep you sane."
Author: Jonathan Stroud
26. "He said he would not yield his judgment to anything proposed by the Church, or any individuals of the Church, or even the Great I Am, given through the appointed organ, as revelation, but would always act upon his own judgment, let him believe in whatever religion he might. He stated he would always say what he pleased, for he was a Republican, and as such would do, say, act, and believe what he pleased.Mark such republicanism as this! A man to oppose his own judgment to the judgment of God, and at the same time to profess to believe in that same God, who has said: "The foolishness of God is wiser than man; and the weakness of God is stronger, than man."[DHC3:66]"
Author: Joseph Smith Jr.
27. "I know now that a friend isn't someone who lets us be ourselves. No! A friend is someone who will die to keep us from becoming anyone else, someone who fights for us against a world that is constantly trying to shrink us into shelved canisters labeled "how you're supposed to be." A friend does everything possible to make sure we become who we are made to be—nothing less, nothing more."
Author: Josh James Riebock
28. "He will miss this quiet full of noise: the nighthawks, the way the woods breathe, the things moving unsuspected through the dark. But he will take with him the canisters full of blasted images and have the pleasure of living them again. They are not nothing, the memories."
Author: Lauren Groff
29. "It was all very strange, Mr. Gray thought, as he wiped the coffee canister clean with a sponge. Very, very mysterious. You were born; you lived a whole life; and at the end, you wound up in a coffee canister."Ah, well," he said out loud quietly. "That's just the way things are. Life's a funny business." Death, he supposed, was the punch line."
Author: Lauren Oliver
30. "Those of us who shout the loudest about Americanism in making character assassinations are all too frequently those who, by our own words and acts, ignore some of the basic principles of Americanism: The right to criticize. The right to hold unpopular beliefs. The right to protest. The right of independent thought."
Author: Margaret Chase Smith
31. "True republicanism is the sovereignty of the people. There are natural and imprescriptible rights which an entire nation has no right to violate."
Author: Marquis De Lafayette
32. "I take my metal canister of tea off the shelf. It is my own mixture of dried lavender blossoms and lemon balm, harvested from my garden and hung in the storeroom to dry. Weed helped me hang these stalks, I think. His hands touched these tender leaves, just as they touch me."
Author: Maryrose Wood
33. "True Americanism is practical idealism. Its aims, instead of being materialistic and mechanical, are idealistic to the point of being Utopian. In this way, the U.S. can provide and express ideals that strike a chord in humans everywhere - a declaration of independence on behalf of all the peoples of the world."
Author: Maurice Saatchi
34. "We'd have to suck away at oxygen canisters between songs just so that we could keep playing."
Author: Michael Hutchence
35. "A quanto pare, ogni tanto gli adulti si prendono una pausa per sedersi a contemplare il disastro della loro vita. Allora si lamentano senza capire e, come le mosche che sbattono sempre contro lo stesso vetro, si agitano, soffrono, deperiscono, si deprimomo e si chiedono quale meccanismo li abbia portati dove non volevano andare. La gente crede di inseguire le stelle e finisce come un pesce rosso in una boccia."
Author: Muriel Barbery
36. "Nu pot sa sufar, suflet miscator,femeie care-mi izvoraste din coasta si-n pietre demelancolie, arzator, cu timpla dai,ca-n inima mea proastaPasul tau zvelt din glezna measa-l rupi nu pot sa sufar, nu, fara durereMi-e sufletul culcat pe colti de lupi.Devine locdunga subtire de tacere si de sub palma lata-a mea,umarul tau cu suierat de tren sesmulge-asurzitor spre-un tunel, spre vid, spre hau,spre-un chip neinventat, traind in viitorNu pot sa sufar, nu, sa treaca intre noi reci dorurilece le misti doar tu nici intimplarile caniste bivoli stinsi, greoi, si nici distantele sa treaca.Nu."
Author: Nichita Stănescu
37. "Living in Germany Africanised me."
Author: Nneka
38. "Beyond any question, the way the American founders consistently linked faith and freedom, republicanism and religion, was not only deliberate and thoughtful, it was also surprising and anything but routine."
Author: Os Guinness
39. "To shut one's door while others suffer, to care only for one's own, disclaiming responsibility for humanity, is to destroy all good impulse and to build up a deadly selfishness which will be a boomerang in its effect upon ourselves. Let our own children see the opportunity now theirs for Americanism in the best and traditional sense. There was never a better hour than this to be an American." May 1940, Christian Herald."
Author: Pearl S. Buck
40. "Shakespeare's ambiguous lubricity in Venus is less disturbing than the bleakly moral emphasis of Lucrece, where virtue is so low-spirited, its exclamation so lachrymose and its justification the nasty realpolitik of Roman Republicanism. The sun has not dried the dew on the grass in Venus, but the ill-lit world of Livy's Rome darkens Lucrece. The first poem lives out of doors; the second is in a permanent chiaroscuro."
Author: Peter Porter
41. "In revolt against this new and very evil thing came the republicanism of the eighteenth century, inspired and directed in large measure by members of the fast perishing aristocracy of race, character and tradition."
Author: Ralph Adams Cram
42. "I hate this shallow Americanism which hopes to get rich by credit, to get knowledge by raps on midnight tables, to learn the economy of the mind by phrenology, or skill without study, or mastery without apprenticeship."
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
43. "O gato de Schröndinger é preso numa caixa com um mecanismo de morte acionado por um evento de mecânica quântica. Antes de abrirmos a tampa da caixa, não sabemos se o gato está vivo ou morto. O bom senso diz que, de qualquer jeito , o gato tem de estar ou vivo ou morto dentro da caixa. A interpretação de Copenhague contradiz o bom senso: tudo que existe antes de abrirmos a caixa é uma probabilidade. Assim que abrimos a caixa, a função de onda colapsa e ficamos com um evento isolado: o gato está morto ou o gato está vivo. Até que abramos a caixa, ele não estava nem morto nem vivo."
Author: Richard Dawkins
44. "The next thing I knew, I was sprawled in the traffic circle, coughing and gasping as a tower of fire roared into the evening sky. My throat burned. My eyes felt like they'd been splashed with acid. I looked for Thalia and instead found myself staring at the bronze face of Medusa. I screamed, somehow found the energy to stand, and ran. I didn't stop until I was cowering behind the statue of Robert E. Lee. Yeah, I know. It sounds comical now. But it's a miracle I didn't have a heart attack or get hit by a car. Finally Thalia caught up to me, her spear back in Mace canister form, her shield reduced to a silver bracelet."
Author: Rick Riordan
45. "Oh, he shouldn't be surprised, he's a Marxist and has nothing but contempt for the bourgeois capitalist press, yet paradoxically he is also somehow an Americanist and a believer in Science and Freedom and History and Reason, and it dismays him to see cruelty politely concealed in data, madness taken for granted and even honored, truth buried away and rotting in all that ex cathedra trivia--my God! something terrible is about to happen, and they have time to editorialize on mustaches, advertise pink cigarettes for weddings, and report on a lost parakeet! Ah, sometimes he just wants to ram the goddamn thing with his head in an all-out frontal attack, wants to destroy all this so-called history so that history can start again."
Author: Robert Coover
46. "I believe in the fireside. I believe in the democracy of home. I believe in the republicanism of the family. I believe in liberty, equality and love."
Author: Robert G. Ingersoll
47. "For Americans, Acts 16:9 is the high-fructose corn syrup of Bible verses--an all-purpose ingredient we'll stir into everything from the ink on the Marshall Plan to canisters of Agent Orange. Our greatest goodness and our worst impulses come out of this missionary zeal, contributing to our overbearing (yet not entirely unwarranted) sense of our country as an inherently helpful force in the world. And, as with the apostle Paul, the notion that strangers want our help is sometimes a delusion."
Author: Sarah Vowell
48. "When they searched my car, they said that they found a gasoline canister and I think duct tape. Who wouldn't have a gasoline canister on them when driving 3,000 miles across country?"
Author: Sherman Austin
49. "It's not Americans I find annoying; it's Americanism: a social disease of the postindustrial world that must inevitably infect each of the mercantile nations in turn, and is called 'American' only because your nation is the most advanced case of the malady, much as one speaks of Spanish flu, or Japanese Type-B encephalitis. It's symptoms are a loss of work ethic, a shrinking of inner resources, and a constant need for external stimulation, followed by spiritual decay and moral narcosis. You can recognize the victim by his constant efforts to get in touch with himself, to believe his spiritual feebleness is an interesting psychological warp, to construe his fleeing from responsibility as evidence that he and his life are uniquely open to new experiences. In the later stages, the sufferer is reduced to seeking that most trivial of human activities: fun."
Author: Trevanian
50. "Chancellor Gerhard Schröder has several times made statements to the effect that we Europeans should not cultivate a superficial anti-Americanism. But mine isn't superficial at all.Personally I have nothing against the US itself - it's a beautiful country - it's the people who live there that are the problem.I guess you could say it's the same thing with Bavaria."
