Quote Left I have a great deal of religious symbolism in my stories because I have a very deep sense of religion and also I have religious training. And I suppose you don't say, I'm going to have the flowering judas tree stand for betrayal, but of course it does. Quote Right
Quote Left There is something greater than wealth, grander even than fame -- manhood, character, stand for success... nothing else really does. Quote Right
Quote Left If we don't stand up for children, then we don't stand for much. Quote Right
Quote Left Wherever a story comes from, whether it is a familiar myth or a private memory, the retelling exemplifies the making of a connection from one pattern to another: a potential translation in which narrative becomes parable and the once upon a time comes to stand for some renascent truth. This approach applies to all the incidents of everyday life: the phrase in the newspaper, the endearing or infuriating game of a toddler, the misunderstanding at the office. Our species thinks in metaphors and learns through stories. Quote Right
Quote Left However fiercely opposed one may be to the present order, an old respect for the idea of order itself often prevents people from distinguishing between order and those who stand for order, and leads them in practice to respect individuals under the pretext of respecting order itself. Quote Right
Quote Left We make a mistake forsaking England and moving out into the periphery of life. After all, Taormina, Ceylon, Africa, America -- as far as we go, they are only the negation of what we ourselves stand for and are: and we're rather like Jonahs running away from the place we belong. Quote Right
Quote Left All these boundaries - Africa, Asia, Malaysia, America - are set by men. But you don't have to look at boundaries when you are looking at a man - at the character of a man. The question is: What do you stand for? Are you a follower, or are you a leader? Quote Right
Quote Left There is one thing I would break up over, and that is if she caught me with another woman. I won't stand for that Quote Right
Quote Left If American politics does not look to you like a joke, a tragic dance; if you have enough blindness left in you, on any plea, on any excuse, to vote for the Democratic Party or the Republican Party (for at present machine and party are one), or for any candidate who does not stand for a new era, -- then you yourself pass into the slide of the magic-lantern; you are an exhibit, a quaint product, a curiosity of the American soil. You are part of the problem. Quote Right
Quote Left Nothing is more common than for men to think that because they are familiar with words they understand the ideas they stand for. Quote Right
Quote Left Mom Doesn't Stand for Made of Money Quote Right
Quote Left Nothing is so foolish, they say, as for a man to stand for office and woo the crowd to win its vote, buy its support with presents, court the applause of all those fools and feel self-satisfied when they cry their approval, and then in his hour of triumph to be carried round like an effigy for the public to stare at, and end up cast in bronze to stand in the market place. Quote Right
Quote Left We can often tell by a man's walk whose son he is, and we should walk so that men about us will know that we are the children of God. One thing is certain--our stand for the truth will mean little if our conduct does not harmonize with our testimony. Quote Right
Quote Left Those who stand for nothing fall for anything. Quote Right
Quote Left Be bold in what you stand for; and careful what you fall for. Quote Right
Quote Left The death-knell of the republic had rung as soon as the active power became lodged in the hands of those who sought, not to do justice to all citizens, rich and poor alike, but to stand for one special class and for its interests as opposed to the interests of others. Quote Right
Quote Left I cannot believe that the purpose of life is (merely) to be happy. I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate. I think it is above all to matter, to count, to stand for something. To have it make some difference that you lived at all. Quote Right
Quote Left Do not let people put you down. Believe in yourself and stand for yourself and trust yourself. Quote Right
Quote Left Windows 95: 32-bit extensions and a graphical shell for a 16-bit patch to an 8-bit operating system originally coded for a 4-bit microprocessor, written by a 2-bit company that can't stand for 1 bit of competition. Quote Right
Quote Left We try to make choices and do things with our career that make a positive impact. We want to have long-lasting careers, but we don't want to have to give in to the industry. We want to stand for what's right, and you can do that and still be relevant and still matter. Quote Right
Quote Left I hope I stand for anti-bigotry, anti-Semitism, anti-racism. This is what drives me. Quote Right
Quote Left Mr. and Mrs. McCartney are vegans, and what they stand for is the complete elimination of the killing of anything that is breathing. Quote Right
Quote Left To stand for Christ is to stand against evil of cruelty inflicted on those who are weak, vulnerable, unprotected, undefended, morally innocent, and in that class we must unambiguously include animals. Quote Right
Quote Left Give us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for, because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything. Quote Right
Quote Left Isaiah 40:8: 'The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.' (NIV)

The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. [James 1:10, 11; I Pet. 1:24, 25.](AMP)

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. (KJV)

Quote Right
Quote Left People should know what you stand for. They should also know what you won't stand for. Quote Right
Quote Left I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be happy. I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all. Quote Right
Quote Left I care nothing for all the political parties in the world except as they stand for justice. Quote Right
Quote Left The ideas I stand for are not mine. I borrowed them from Socrates. I swiped them from Chesterfield. I stole them from Jesus. And I put them in a book. If you don't like their rules whose would you use Quote Right
Quote Left If you don't stand for something, you fall for everything. Quote Right
