Quote Left Föräldrarna vill att deras son ska heta 'BrfxxccxxmnpckccccIIImmnprxvImnckssqlbbIIII6' fast det ska uttalas 'Albin'. Omöjligt, anser myndigheterna.

[...] Efter flera påstötningar från det lokala skattekontoret, fyllde mamman i en blankett med den 44 tecken långa bokstavs och siffekombinationen.

Det blev underkänt. Quote Right

Quote Left We are very excited to add Bobby Gonzalez as our head coach to an already storied basketball tradition at Seton Hall.

He has an established presence in the metropolitan area and his teams have been perennial winners on the court. Quote Right

Quote Left Science and technology revolutionize our lives, but memory, tradition and myth frame our response.

Quote Left All of Western tradition, from the late bloom of the British Empire right through the early doom of Vietnam, dictates that you do something spectacular and irreversible whenever you find yourself in or whenever you impose yourself upon a wholly unfamiliar situation belonging to somebody else. Frequently it's your soul or your honor or your manhood, or democracy itself, at stake. Quote Right
Quote Left The primary function of myth is to validate an existing social order. Myth enshrines conservative social values, raising tradition on a pedestal. It expresses and confirms, rather than explains or questions, the sources of cultural attitudes and values. Because myth anchors the present in the past it is a sociological charter for a future society which is an exact replica of the present one. Quote Right

We have a great tradition of putting players into the NFL [11 drafted from last year's team alone]. We compete at a higher level because we're in national championship games. I do think we have character on this team. Quote Right
Quote Left A precedent embalms a principle. Quote Right
Quote Left The thinking man must oppose all cruel customs no matter how deeply rooted in tradition and surrounded by a halo. When we have a choice, we must avoid bringing torment and injury into the life of another, even the lowliest creature; to do so is to renounce our manhood and shoulder a guilt which nothing justifies.

Quote Left Some of the politicians in this country, in their feverish search for group acceptance, are ready to endorse tumultuous confrontation as a substitute for debate, and the most illogical and unfitting extensions of the Bill of Rights as protections for psychotic and criminal elements in our society. We have seen all too clearly that there are mennow in power in this countrywho do not represent authority, who cannot cope with tradition, and who believe that the people of America are ready to support revolution as long as it is done with a cultured voice and a handsome profile.
