Henry Fielding, a highly successful satiric dramatist until the introduction of censorship in 1737, began his novel-writing career with Shamela, a pastiche of Pamela, which humorously attacked the hypocritical morality which that novel displayed. Joseph Andrews (1742) was also intended as a kind of parody of Richardson; but Fielding found that his novels were taking on a moral life of their own, and he developed his own highly personal narrative style - humorous and ironic, with an omniscient narrative presence controlling the lives and destinies of his characters.

Fielding focuses more on male characters and manners than Richardson. In doing so, he creates a new kind of hero in his novels. Joseph Andrews is chaste, while Tom Jones in Tom Jones (1749) is quite the opposite. Tom is the model of the young foundling enjoying his freedom (to travel, to have relationships with women, to enjoy sensual experience) until his true origins are discovered. When he matures, he assumes his social responsibilities and marries the woman he has 'always' loved, who has, of course, like a mediaeval crusader's beloved, been waiting faithfully for him. Both of these heroes are types, representatives of their sex.

There is a picaresque journey from innocence to experience, from freedom to responsibility. It is a rewriting of male roles to suit the society of the time. The hero no longer makes a crusade to the Holy Land, but the crusade is a personal one, with chivalry learne ~ Ronald Carter
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Ronald Carter
For centuries, dreams have been used to communicate instruction and direction to people of purpose - great men and women. God used dreams to prepare Joseph for his future as a leader of nations. He gave battle plans to Gideon in a dream. Joan of Arc, Jacob, George Washington, Marie Curie, and the apostle Paul were all guided by their dreams. ~ Andy Andrews
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Andy Andrews
In such societies it is common for ordinary people to seek out celibate spiritual leaders for marriage, love and sometimes sexual guidance. This strikes me as a particularly stupid kind of folly. Nobody ever asks a vegetarian for a recommendation for a steak house ~ Scott Andrews
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Scott Andrews
If you are against abortions, don't have one. ~ Scott Andrews
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Scott Andrews
Every single day an estimated eighteen million men gratuitously waste the future of our country, by needlessly ejaculating one hundred million citizens of our country, which had they been born, would have made us the strongest country on the planet. ~ Scott Andrews
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Scott Andrews
The purpose of science is to develop, without prejudice or preconception of any kind, a knowledge of the facts, the laws, and the processes of nature. The even more important task of religion, on the other hand, is to develop the consciences, the ideals, and the aspirations of mankind. ~ Robert Andrews Millikan
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Robert Andrews Millikan
If anyone had told Joss last week that she'd be dry humping a twenty-seven-year-old she'd met only five days prior in the bathroom of the loft above her garage, she'd have committed them for psychiatric evaluation. But here she was and she could not get enough.
Her body throbbed with need. Maybe she needed committing? ~ Amy Andrews
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Amy Andrews
To name a thing is easy: the difficulty is to discern it before its appearance. ~ Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
You want to know how moral she is?" His tone made me frown. "What do you mean?" "If she chases me any harder, she and I will wind up playing a scene from that Bible she reads. The scene between Potiphar's wife and Joseph. ~ Octavia E. Butler
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Octavia E. Butler
In marriage you are not sacrificing yourself to the other person. You are sacrificing yourself to the relationship. ~ Joseph Campbell
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Joseph Campbell
The terrorist and the policeman both come from the same basket. ~ Joseph Conrad
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Joseph Conrad
The object of my researches is the brain. The cranium is only a faithful cast of the external surface of the brain, and is consequently but a minor part of the principal object. ~ Franz Joseph Gall
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Franz Joseph Gall
The ordinary operations of algebra suffice to resolve problems in the theory of curves. ~ Joseph-Louis Lagrange
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Joseph-Louis Lagrange
It should therefore be difficult in a republic to declare war; but not to make peace. ~ Joseph Story
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Joseph Story
Horror!' "'His last word - to live with,' she murmured. 'Don't you understand I loved him - I loved him - I loved him!' "I pulled myself together and spoke slowly. "'The last word he pronounced ~ Joseph Conrad
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Joseph Conrad
If you want resurrection, you must have crucifixion ... The hoarder, the one in us that wants to keep, to hold on, must be killed. ~ Joseph Campbell
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Joseph Campbell
I've said it would have to be our Empire Strikes Back for me to come back and for me to pull the whole team back together. I think we do have that idea. We do have the idea that feels big and really blows the doors off this franchise. It's hinted at promises of something for two movies now, for thirty years, so it's time to deliver on that. ~ Joseph Kosinski
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Joseph Kosinski
We were mainly concerned about nudity - how much could be shown in 1959 and how much would convey, without being gratuitous, the terror of being attacked naked and wet. ~ Joseph Stefano
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Joseph Stefano
Whatever your vocation is, you are destined to reign in life because Jesus is Lord of your life. When you reign in life, you reign over sin, you reign over the powers of darkness, and you reign over depression, over poverty, over every curse, and over every sickness and disease. You REIGN over the devil and all his devices! ~ Joseph Prince
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Joseph Prince
The real issues I don't think most people touch. The Clinton jokes are all about Monica Lewinsky and all that stuff and not about the important things, like the fact that he wouldn't ban landmines ... I'm not tempted to write a song about George W. Bush. I couldn't figure out what sort of song I would write. That's the problem: I don't want to satirize George Bush and his puppeteers, I want to vaporize them. And that's not funny ... OK, well, if I say that, I might get a shock laugh, but it's not really satire. ~ Tom Lehrer
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Tom Lehrer
Will not the Lord hear my prayers and listen to my cries as soon as he ever did to theirs [the ancient saints'] if I come to him in the manner they did? ~ Joseph Smith Jr.
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Joseph Smith Jr.
How Finite Minds Most Want To Be

You are the living marrow.
The rest is hay,
and dead grass does not nourish a human being.

When you are not here,
this desire we feel
has no traveling companion.

When the sun is gone,
the soul's clarity fades.
There is nothing but idiocy and mistakes.
We are half-dead, inanimate, exhausted.

The way finite minds most want to be
is an ocean with a soul swimming in it.
No one can describe that.
These words do not touch you.

Metaphors mentioning the moon
have no effect on the moon.

My soul, you are a master,
a Moses, a Jesus.

Why do I stay blind in your presence?
You are Joseph at the bottom of his well.

Constantly working, but you do not get paid,
because what you do seems trivial, like play.

Now silence.
Unless these words fill with nourishment
from the unseen, they will stay empty,
and why would I serve my friends
bowls with no food in them? ~ Rumi
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Rumi
I prefer the retro chic of spending Christmas just like Joseph and Mary did - Traveling arduously back to the place of your birth to be counted, with no guarantee of a bed when you get there. ~ Tina Fey
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Tina Fey
I think he knows all my tricks. Or the fact I don't have any tricks - Brendan Shanahan on trying to score against Curtis Joseph. I'm hoping for a bench clearing brawl during the warm up so I can go out and grab his stick. ~ Ron Tugnutt
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Ron Tugnutt
Our time was most delightfully spent, in mutual Protestations of Freindship, and in vows of unalterable Love, in which we were secure from being interrupted, by intruding and disagreeable Visistors, as Augustus and Sophia had on their first Entrance in the Neighbourhood, taken due care to inform the surrounding Families, that as their happiness centered wholly in themselves, they wished for no other society. ~ Jane Austen
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Jane Austen
Each person in the world is different and has their own beautiful sound in the symphony of life. ~ Joseph B. Wirthlin
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Joseph B. Wirthlin
All art (after Duchamp) is conceptual (in nature) because art only exists conceptually. ~ Joseph Kosuth
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Joseph Kosuth
The history of man proves that religion perverts man's concept of life and the universe, and has made him a cringing coward before the blind forces of nature.
If you believe that there is a God; that man was 'created'; that he was forbidden to eat of the fruit of the 'tree of knowledge'; that he disobeyed; that he is a 'fallen angel'; that he is paying the penalty for his 'sins,' then you devote your time praying to appease an angry and jealous God.
If, on the other hand, you believe that the universe is a great mystery; that man is the product of evolution; that he is born without knowledge; that intelligence comes from experience, then you devote your time and energies to improving his condition with the hope of securing a little happiness here for yourself and your fellow man.
That is the difference.
If man was 'created,' then someone made a grievous mistake. ~ Joseph Lewis
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Joseph Lewis
His body walks out onto the darkened stage , and a roar goes up from the crowd. He stands in front of the mic, and he can feel his face twist in a sneer-the Elvis sneer from his dreams-though he never told it to move. He is powerless now, a spectator at his own moment of glory. ~ Joseph Garraty
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Joseph Garraty
First we make a choice. Then our choices make us. ~ Andy Andrews
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Andy Andrews
Now the soul says, 'Lord, where shall I go? You have the words of eternal life.' [John 6: 68] Here he centers, here he settles. It is the entrance of heaven to him; he sees his interest in God. ~ Joseph Alleine
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Joseph Alleine
The full sequence of communication between neurons is thus usually electrical-chemical-electrical: electrical signals coming down axons get converted into chemical messages that help trigger electrical signals in the next cell. There are also synapses through which communication between presynaptic and postsynaptic sites is purely electrical, but chemical transmission is the more prevalent form. Thus, much of what the brain does involves electrical-to-chemical-to-electrical coding of experience. As hard as it may be to imagine, electrochemical conversations between neurons make possible all of the wondrous (and sometimes dreadful) accomplishments of human minds. Your very understanding that the brain works this way is itself an electrochemical event. ~ Joseph E. LeDoux
Joseph Andrews Satire quotes by Joseph E. LeDoux
