#1. Yet the effort to inform the public also encouraged responsible public discussion that succeeded in developing a consensus for the measured approach that many scientists supported. - Author: Paul Berg
Public Discussion quotes by Paul Berg
#2. There is a very real and critical danger that unrestrained public discussion of cryptologic matters will seriously damage the ability of this government to conduct signals intelligence and the ability of this government to carry out its mission of protecting national security information from hostile exploitation. - Author: Bobby Ray Inman
Public Discussion quotes by Bobby Ray Inman
#3. The nation relies upon public discussion as one of the indispensable means to attain correct solutions to problems of social welfare. Curtailment of free speech limits this open discussion. Our whole history teaches that adjustment of social relations through reason is possible when free speech is maintained. - Author: Stanley Forman Reed
Public Discussion quotes by Stanley Forman Reed
#4. Machiavelli's teaching would hardly have stood the test of Parliamentary government, for public discussion demands at least the profession of good faith. - Author: Lord Acton
Public Discussion quotes by Lord Acton
#5. Why does a public discussion of economic policy so often show the abysmal ignorance of the participants? - Author: Robert Solow
Public Discussion quotes by Robert Solow
#6. Unnamed entertainment industry moguls are now telling the New York Times that they intend never to work with Mel Gibson again. After all, how dare Mel Gibson challenge the public by producing a film that spurs public discussion, that pushes the envelope, that takes an old story to a new level. How dare Mel Gibson follow his own passion as a filmmaker. How dare he make $20 million on the opening day box office! - Author: Laura Ingraham
Public Discussion quotes by Laura Ingraham
#7. The collective benefits of higher education will not be asserted unless the public can be engaged in defining them. A student's future returns on his or her personal investment of time and money will seem more critical than the public benefits to be derived from ensuring that all students become people of character as well as of competence. An institution's prowess in potentially lucrative lines of scientific research will seem more essential to its mission than its participation in the development of an aesthetically engaged and broadly humane society. Unless there is public discussion that can help support the balancing of public and private priorities, colleges and universities will dance only to the private ambitions that ensure continuing high levels of enrollment and high ratings in the various surveys of satisfaction that give institutions a boost in national rankings. - Author: Ellen Condliffe Lagemann
Public Discussion quotes by Ellen Condliffe Lagemann
#8. The power of the press in America is a primordial one. It sets the agenda of public discussion; and this sweeping political power is unrestrained by any law. It deter- mines what people will talk and think about-an authority that in other nations is reserved for tyrants, priests, parties and mandarins. - Author: Theodore White
Public Discussion quotes by Theodore White
#9. the proper way to elicit information from a group is not by starting with a public discussion but by confidentially collecting each person's judgment. This procedure makes better use of the knowledge available to members of the group than the common practice of open discussion. - Author: Daniel Kahneman
Public Discussion quotes by Daniel Kahneman
#10. We are all caught up, entangled, in the lumbering day-to-day operations of a [social] machinery, working in many respects in the service of ends which we as Christians reject. This situation, the present [schizophrenic] situation of thousands of thinking Christians is the end product of a process that began the day Christians first decided to stop thinking Christianly in the interests of national harmony; the day when Christians first felt that the only way out of endless public discussion was to limit the operation of acute Christian awareness to the spheres of personal morality and spirituality.
From that point, the spheres of political, cultural, social, and commercial life became dominated by pragmatic and utilitarian thinking. - Author: Harry Blamires
Public Discussion quotes by Harry Blamires
#11. As a woman who chooses to be childless, I generally have just one problem: other adults. Living in a culture where women are assumed to prioritize motherhood above all else and where a woman's personal choices are often considered matters of public discussion means everyone things they have the right to discuss my body and my choices, so anyone curious about my lack of spawn feels the right to march right on over and ask me about it. - Author: Danielle Henderson
Public Discussion quotes by Danielle Henderson
#12. Throughout Ronnie's presidency, there was an ongoing public discussion as to how much influence the first lady should have on the president. It's hardly a new problem. As long as mankind has lived in groups, there's always been a question of how to handle the boss's wife. - Author: Nancy Reagan
Public Discussion quotes by Nancy Reagan
#13. Human and moral factors must always be considered. They must never be missing from policies and from public discussion. - Author: Herman Kahn
Public Discussion quotes by Herman Kahn
#14. REVOLUTION, n. A bursting of the boilers which usually takes place when the safety valve of public discussion is closed. - Author: Ambrose Bierce
Public Discussion quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#15. Artists are valuable to public discussion: They show the correlation between doing and thinking. - Author: Olafur Eliasson
Public Discussion quotes by Olafur Eliasson
#16. The propagandist naturally cannot reveal the true intentions of the principal for whom he acts ... That would be to submit the projects to public discussion, to the scrutiny of public opinion, and thus to prevent their success ... Propaganda must serve instead as a veil for such projects, masking true intentions. - Author: Jacques Ellul
Public Discussion quotes by Jacques Ellul
#17. Many Americans do not understand why we are regarded with such suspicion by so many others around the world and the anger of the moment makes public discussion of central problems frequently intemperate. - Author: Francis George
Public Discussion quotes by Francis George
#18. In the cloudy swirl of misleading ideas surrounding public discussion of addiction, there's one that stands out: the misconception that drug taking by itself will lead to addiction - in other words, that the cause of addiction resides in the power of the drug over the human brain. It is one of the bedrock fables sustaining the so-called War on Drugs. - Author: Gabor Mate
Public Discussion quotes by Gabor Mate
#19. I think it's very important to have a public discussion about why we're denying our soldiers the ability to exercise their Second Amendment rights. - Author: Ted Cruz
Public Discussion quotes by Ted Cruz
#20. For ten years after the atomic bomb was dropped there was so little public discussion of the bomb or of radioactivity that even the Chugoku Shinbun, the major newspaper of the city where the atomic bomb was dropped, did not have the movable type for 'atomic bomb' or 'radioactivity'. The silence continued so long because the U.S. Army Surgeons Investigation Team in the fall of 1945 had issued a mistaken statement: all people expected to die from the radiation effects of the atomic bomb had by then already died; accordingly, no further cases of physiological effects due to residual radiation would be acknowledged. - Author: Kenzaburo Oe
Public Discussion quotes by Kenzaburo Oe
#21. In modern democracies, press freedom was being used as a cloak to shield media conglomerates' domination of public discussion 'in which misinformation may be peddled uncorrected and in which reputations may be selectively shredded or magnified. A free press is not an unconditional good.' When the media mislead, she added, 'the wells of public discourse and public life are poisoned'.

Dr Onora O'Neill - Author: Ian Hargreaves
Public Discussion quotes by Ian Hargreaves
#22. The legislature, like the executive, has ceased to be even the creature of the people: it is the creature of pressure groups, and most of them, it must be manifest, are of dubious wisdom and even more dubious honesty. Laws are no longer made by a rational process of public discussion; they are made by a process of blackmail and intimidation, and they are executed in the same manner. The typical lawmaker of today is a man wholly devoid of principle - Author: H.L. Mencken
Public Discussion quotes by H.L. Mencken
#23. Scholars may contribute their knowledge or insight to public debate on important issues. They may contribute it in a form that is understandable to a policymaker, or even to the public, consistently with their duty of rigorous intellectual honesty. Scholars should not feel constrained to publish only turgid prose in obscure journals. They should not leave the public debate to those who feel no scruples whatever to conform their claims to the evidence. - Author: Douglas Laycock
Public Discussion quotes by Douglas Laycock
#24. Fortunately, both governments have been in favor of studying the Mexican migration problem in greater depth. For the first time, I think, we will have something scientifically sound that says something about this phenomenon. The study is ongoing, and I hope that, with a push from both of us, it will provide a sound basis for serious public discussion on the migration issue. - Author: Ernesto Zedillo
Public Discussion quotes by Ernesto Zedillo
#25. It is conventional to tell that constitutional story - of a republican failure ending in restoration - but to do so is to limit the significance of the 1640s to that single constitutional queston. There is much more to say, and to remember, about England's decade of civil war and revolution. Political and religious questions of fundamental importance were thrashed out before broad political audiences as activists and opportunists sought to mobilize support for their proposals. The resulting mass of contemporary argument is alluring to the historian since it lays bare the presumptions of a society very alient to our own. At the same time, by exposing those presumptions to sustained critical examination, this public discussion changed them. - Author: Michael Braddick
Public Discussion quotes by Michael Braddick
#26. I learned everything along the way. I only performed five times before I was in the public eye. - Author: Ciara
Public Discussion quotes by Ciara
#27. You are going to have a nasty scar," I said as I gently held pressure to stop the bleeding.
"All true warriors wear their scars proudly," he mumbled. "How can I be proud of this one?"
I looked up at him, horrified, as I realized what he meant. "What will your parents say?" I would be sent to Siberia. My whole family would be exiled. If not executed.
He shook his head. "They will know about the count before too long. My father will think that I failed to protect the public from this danger. It is I who fear being sent to Siberia."
"But ... wait. I didn't express my fears out loud, did I?" I dropped his arm and backed away, suddenly spooked by his silvery faerie eyes. "Can you read my thoughts?"
"Sometimes, when I concentrate." He winced and grabbed the bandage from me to apply pressure to the bleeding himself. "You are very easy to read. Most of the time. - Author: Robin Bridges
Public Discussion quotes by Robin Bridges
#28. After the war, and until the day of his death, his position on almost every public question was either mischievous or ridiculous, and usually both. - Author: Theodore Roosevelt
Public Discussion quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#29. That Lady Russell of steady age and character, and extrememly well provided for,should have no thought of a second marriage needs no apology to the public, which is rather apt to be unreasonalbly discontented when a woman 'does' marry again,than when she does not, but Sir William's continuing in singleness requires explanation. - Author: Jane Austen
Public Discussion quotes by Jane Austen
#30. I have no problems with private schools. I graduated from one and so did my mother. Private schools are useful and we often use public funds to pay for their infrastructures and other common needs. - Author: Jim Clyburn
Public Discussion quotes by Jim Clyburn
#31. Pat Boone still didn't cover public cunt-licks in Tips for Teens, and there really wasn't anybody to ask. - Author: Jerry Stahl
Public Discussion quotes by Jerry Stahl
#32. I would jump down Etna for any public good - but I hate a mawkish popularity. - Author: John Keats
Public Discussion quotes by John Keats
#33. For the public ever to break command science it must first understand the basis of its enormous powers ... Traditionally, the power of medical sciences has been based on the fear of disease, particularly infectious disease. - Author: Peter Duesberg
Public Discussion quotes by Peter Duesberg
#34. I believe that a person's thoughts often manifest into actual events - that we think things into existence. Right? Well, think about this: one of the illnesses that has become an epidemic in the Western world is an addiction to news. Newspapers, Internet news, 24-hour news channels. And what is news? News is history in the making. So the addiction to news is the addiction to the outcome of history. Are you with me so far?'
'I get it. Go on.'
'In the past couple of decades, news has been produced as entertainment. So people's addiction to news is the addiction to its function as entertainment. If you combine the power of thought with this addiction to entertaining news, then the part of the hundreds of millions of people, the viewing public, that wishes peace on earth is overshadowed by the part of them that wants the next chapter in the story. Every person who turns on the news and finds there's no developments is disappointed. They're checking the news two or three times a day - they want drama, and drama means not only death but death by the thousands, so in the secrets parts of themselves, every news-addicted person is hoping for greater calamity, more bodies, more spectacular wars, more hideous enemy attacks, and these wishes are going out every day into the world. Don't you see? Right now, more than at any other time in history, the universal wish is a black one. - Author: Steve Toltz
Public Discussion quotes by Steve Toltz
#35. Classic Ballet,

Keep away, keep building your creaky fairy castles, keep cloning clones and meaningless manners, hang on to your beanstalk ballerinas and their midget male shadows, run yourself out of business with your tons of froufrou and costly clattery toe shoes that ruin all chances for illusions of lightness, keep on crowding the minds of blind balletomanes who prefer dainty poses to the eloquent strength of momentum, who have forgotten or never known the manings of gesture, who would nod their noses to barefoot embargos ("so grab me" spelt backwards). Continue to repolish your stiff technique and to ignore a public that hungers for something other than a bag of tricks and the empty-headedness of surface patterns.

Just keep it up, keep imitating yourself, and, , go grow your own dance makers. Come on, don't keep trying to filter modern ones through your so-safe extablishment. We're to be seen undiluted, undistorted, not absorbed by your hollow world like blood into a sponge.

Yours truly,
A Different Leaf on Our Family Tree - Author: Paul Taylor
Public Discussion quotes by Paul    Taylor
#36. I've always told the truth. I've often been wrong - but I've never knowingly lied. Not in public life. Because I don't see the need to. - Author: Ken Livingstone
Public Discussion quotes by Ken Livingstone
#37. To write poetry, like sincere poetry, it is like performing heart surgery on yourself without anesthesia ... in public ... You are peeling back layers. You are dissecting yourself ... You do not know what they [the audience] is going to do when you reach into yourself and rip out your organs to be displayed - Author: Amir Sulaiman
Public Discussion quotes by Amir Sulaiman
#38. Climate change will impact most heavily on the disadvantaged. If we don't address these impacts, as well as growing income inequalities, we are marching blindly toward major breakdowns in security, governance, and public welfare. - Author: Wesley K. Wark
Public Discussion quotes by Wesley K. Wark
#39. There were certainly those who rubbed their eyes in astonishment. But when we held a company discussion forum with Joschka Fischer, interest was high. Six hundred senior managers came to the meeting. In the end, there was tremendous applause for Fischer, because he offered a precise analysis of the challenges our industry faces worldwide. - Author: Norbert Reithofer
Public Discussion quotes by Norbert Reithofer
#40. Some days he wishes that he could simply empty the chambers of the men, fill the halls instead with women: the short sharp shock of three thousand two hundred mothers. The ones who picked through the supermarket debris for pieces of their dead husbands. The ones who still laundered their gone son's bed sheets by hand. The ones who kept an extra teacup at the end of the table, in case of miracles. The elegant ones, the angry ones, the clever ones, the ones in hairnets, the ones exhausted by all the dying. They carried their sorrow
not with photos under their arms, or with public wailing, or by beating their chests, but with a weariness around the eyes. - Author: Colum McCann
Public Discussion quotes by Colum McCann
#41. All I'm asking for is the law that's been on the books for the last 33 years, no public funding for abortion. We are both saying the same thing, pro-life, pro-choice. Let's find the language that works for both of us so we can pass health care. - Author: Bart Stupak
Public Discussion quotes by Bart Stupak
#42. I suppose, Watson, we must look upon you as a man of letters," said he. "How do you define the word 'grotesque'?"
"Strange - remarkable," I suggested.
He shook his head at my definition.
"There is surely something more than that," said he; "some underlying suggestion of the tragic and the terrible. If you cast your mind back to some of those narratives with which you have afflicted a long-suffering public, you will recognize how of- ten the grotesque has deepened into the criminal. - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Public Discussion quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#43. I know I'm being judged, and anyone who works in the public eye will get some negativity at some point. It can be tough and it hurts. I can be very tough on myself. Occasionally, I hear or read something cruel and I'm shocked. - Author: Deborra-Lee Furness
Public Discussion quotes by Deborra-Lee Furness
#44. Satire is used for political purposes all the time, but obviously there's a time and a place. I think in the current climate, it can be very difficult to speak your mind, but sometimes, I believe, we're all in danger and I think this discussion needs to be widened. - Author: George Michael
Public Discussion quotes by George Michael
#45. He should have caught up with me inside of fifteen minutes at the outside, if he'd been able to get on the next train after mine. But then there was that station agent to be considered. And Rafe didn't have a solitary coin on him; he'd have to break one of those fifties. I now remembered something that I'd been noticing half my life and that had never meant anything to me until today - a little sign outside each subway change booth, advising the public that the agent wasn't obliged to make change for anything bigger than $1. Never get mixed up in a murder, flashed through my mind insanely, unless you've got plenty of small change.
("Don't Wait Up For Me, Tonight") - Author: Cornell Woolrich
Public Discussion quotes by Cornell Woolrich
#46. We should be wary what persecution we raise against the living labors of public men, how we spill that seasoned life of man, preserved and stored up in books, since we see a kind of homicide may be thus committed, sometimes a martyrdom; and if it extend to the whole impression, a kind of massacre, whereof the execution ends not in the slaying of an elemental life, but strikes at the ethereal and fifth essence, the breath of reason itself; slays an immortality rather than a life. - Author: John Milton
Public Discussion quotes by John Milton
#47. Thea was still under the belief that public opinion could be placated; that if you clucked often enough, the hens would mistake you for one of themselves. - Author: Willa Cather
Public Discussion quotes by Willa Cather
#48. The task of the political philosopher can only be to influence public opinion, not to organize people for action. He will do so effectively only if he is not concerned with what is now politically possible but consistently defends the "general principles which are always the same." In this sense I doubt whether there can be such a thing as a conservative political philosophy. Conservatism may often be a useful practical maxim, but it does not give us any guiding principles which can influence long-range developments. - Author: Friedrich August Von Hayek
Public Discussion quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#49. He who disagrees with me in private, call him a fool. He who disagrees with me in public, call him an ambulance. - Author: Simon Munnery
Public Discussion quotes by Simon Munnery
#50. Like it or not, war (cold or hot) is the most powerful funding driver in the public arsenal. Lofty goals such as curiosity, discovery, exploration, and science can get you money for modest-size projects, provided they resonate with the political and cultural views of the moment. But big, expensive activities are inherently long term, and require sustained investment that must survive economic fluctuations and changes in the political winds. In all eras, across time and culture, only war, greed, and the celebration of royal or religious power have fulfilled that funding requirement. Today, the power of kings is supplanted by elected governments, and the power of religion is often expressed in nonarchitectural undertakings, leaving war and greed to run the show. Sometimes those two drivers work hand in hand, as in the art of profiteering from the art of war. But war itself remains the ultimate and most compelling rationale. - Author: Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Public Discussion quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#51. Great public speakers know this and build presentations around one of the senses predominantly, but they incorporate at least one or two others: sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste. Smell and taste are harder to incorporate - Author: Carmine Gallo
Public Discussion quotes by Carmine Gallo
#52. For almost a century since 1918, the centralised nation-state has been the world's default political form. Its various experiments in industrialisation, urbanisation, mass literacy and consumerism have brought more people into public life. - Author: Pankaj Mishra
Public Discussion quotes by Pankaj Mishra
#53. Every man is to be considered in two capacities, the private and public; as designed to pursue his own interest, and likewise to contribute to the good of others. - Author: Joseph Butler
Public Discussion quotes by Joseph Butler
#54. 'Negative liberty' is a political science term meaning a liberty from government action. It is not a liberty to anything - like the liberty to meaningfully contribute to public debate or to have ample spaces for speech. - Author: Marvin Ammori
Public Discussion quotes by Marvin Ammori
#55. Today we know the best way to prevent the spread of Ebola infection is through public health measures. - Author: Anthony Fauci
Public Discussion quotes by Anthony Fauci
#56. It is the inevitable effect of religion on public policy that makes it a matter of public concern. Advocates of religiosity extol the virtues or moral habits that religion is supposed to instill in us. But we should be equally concerned with the intellectual habits it discourages. - Author: Wendy Kaminer
Public Discussion quotes by Wendy Kaminer
#57. But veteran lawmakers torn apart by PTSD don't have a choice about being Exhibit A in the case against Washington politics. When you see what can happen to a page or a junior congressman, it passes on in a very real way, not in a history-class sense, that reality of what political power really is, .. Who are we to impose this emotional albatross on public servants? As a nation, we pretend to elect our leaders. It seems unjust to make them a special class to suffer for our sins over wrongheaded laws, or pay a continuing emotional price for securing their future careers. - Author: Leon Kass
Public Discussion quotes by Leon Kass
#58. There is too little public recognition of how much we all depend upon farmers as stewards of our soil, water and wildlife resources. - Author: John F. Kennedy
Public Discussion quotes by John F. Kennedy
#59. Like, suppose Massachusetts were to increase business taxes. Most of the population is in favor of it, but you can predict what would happen. Business would run a public relations campaign―which is true, in fact, it's not lies―saying, "You raise taxes on business, you soak the rich, and you'll find that capital is going to flow elsewhere, and you're not going to have any jobs, you're not going to have anything." That's not the way they'd put it exactly, but that's what it would amount to: "Unless you make us happy you're not going to have anything, because we own the place; you live here, but we own the place." And in fact, that's basically the message that is presented, not in those words of course, whenever a reform measure does come along somewhere―they have a big propaganda campaign saying, it's going to hurt jobs, it's going to hurt investment, there's going to be a loss of business confidence, and so on. That's just a complicated way of saying, unless you keep business happy, the population isn't going to have anything. - Author: Noam Chomsky
Public Discussion quotes by Noam Chomsky
#60. The public is wiser than the wisest critic. - Author: George Bancroft
Public Discussion quotes by George Bancroft
#61. The genuine rationalist does not think that he or anyone else is in possession of the truth; nor does he think that mere criticism as such helps us achieve new ideas. But he does think that, in the sphere of ideas, only critical discussion can help us sort the wheat from the chaff. - Author: Karl Popper
Public Discussion quotes by Karl Popper
#62. The big idea behind it was to somehow participate in the discussion about justice. What does it mean to be just to the others out there whose lives we do not think about. One of the answers I came up with was simply tell their stories. - Author: Teju Cole
Public Discussion quotes by Teju Cole
#63. Cynically but accurately put, Americans oppose public intervention or regulation if it helps others, but favor it if it helps them - take social security, disaster relief, public works projects, for example. - Author: Jon Meacham
Public Discussion quotes by Jon Meacham
#64. Society is the dynamic equilibrium of public complaint. - Author: Del Herring
Public Discussion quotes by Del Herring
#65. Whenever I organize or participate in public protest I get really worried that it will just suck, be really small, embarrassing, and the media will laugh at me. Oftentimes, it is really small and most of the time the media laughs at us. - Author: Rachel Corrie
Public Discussion quotes by Rachel Corrie
#66. He likewise directed, that every senator in the great council of a nation, after he had delivered his opinion, and argued in the defence of it, should be obliged to give his vote directly contrary; because if that were done, the result would infallibly terminate in the good of the public. - Author: Jonathan Swift
Public Discussion quotes by Jonathan Swift
#67. ( ... )the question of the Jews has come to the fore, but like other questions which lend themselves to prejudice, efforts will be made to hush it up as impolitic for open discussion. If, however, experience has taught us anything it is that questions thus suppressed will sooner or later break out in undesirable and unprofitable forms. - Author: Henry Ford
Public Discussion quotes by Henry Ford
#68. The function of State coercion is to override individual coercion, and, of course, coercion exercised by any association of individuals within the State. It is by this means that it maintains liberty of expression, security of person and property, genuine freedom of contract, the rights of public meeting and association, and finally its own power to carry out common objects undefeated by the recalcitrance of individual members. - Author: Leonard Trelawny Hobhouse
Public Discussion quotes by Leonard Trelawny Hobhouse
#69. We're spending, on average, three times more for prison than for public-school pupils. That's the dumbest investment policy. It doesn't make us safer. - Author: Marian Wright Edelman
Public Discussion quotes by Marian Wright Edelman
#70. I can go out in public without being recognized. If I want to be recognized in public, it will happen. - Author: Peter Mayhew
Public Discussion quotes by Peter Mayhew
#71. We all make judgments on people, but some are much more brutal than others. It's easy to say, 'Ya know, I'm not crazy about what she's wearing,' but you don't have to be nasty about it, and you don't have to be public about it. - Author: Joan Jett
Public Discussion quotes by Joan Jett
#72. Please," Kendra said. "Think of all the lives that will be destroyed."
"I have," Mark said. "Believe me, darling, I grasp all aspects of this, I really do. But how much has the public I'm protecting worried about me? My sanity, my happiness, my right to find peace?"
"They made no promises," Bracken said. "They are not preventing the end of the world. Those who know about your sacrifice appreciate you immeasurably. Your life may not be fair, but it is absolutely necessary. - Author: Brandon Mull
Public Discussion quotes by Brandon Mull
