Top Supersede Quotes

Supersede Quotes By James Otis

There can be no prescription old enough to supersede the Law of Nature and the grant of God Almighty, who has given to all men a natural right to be free, and they have it ordinarily in their power to make themselves so, if they please. — James Otis

Supersede Quotes By Catherine Booth

If Christ cannot supersede the Law, then I am lost, and lost forever. — Catherine Booth

If there ever is a struggle, making a good movie will always supersede the need to be noble. — Michael Moore

Supersede Quotes By John C. Calhoun

To maintain the ascendancy of the Constitution over the lawmaking majority is the great and essential point on which the success of the [American] system must depend; unless that ascendancy can be preserved, the necessary consequence must be that the laws will supersede the Constitution; and, finally, the will of the Executive, by influence of its patronage, will supersede the laws ... — John C. Calhoun

Supersede Quotes By Lisa Vanderpump

Don't take life too seriously. Have fun in your life. And, never forget my mantra - love and laughter supersede all! — Lisa Vanderpump

Supersede Quotes By James Clerk Maxwell

Accordingly, we find Euler and D'Alembert devoting their talent and their patience to the establishment of the laws of rotation of the solid bodies. Lagrange has incorporated his own analysis of the problem with his general treatment of mechanics, and since his time M. Poinsot has brought the subject under the power of a more searching analysis than that of the calculus, in which ideas take the place of symbols, and intelligent propositions supersede equations. — James Clerk Maxwell

Supersede Quotes By Richard Whately

As the telescope is not a substitute for, but an aid to, our sight, so revelation is not designed to supersede the use of reason, but to supply its deficiencies. — Richard Whately

Supersede Quotes By Ujjwal Nikam

I am afraid that it would be a mockery of justice if the death penalty is not imposed. And therefore I pleaded that there are maximum aggravating circumstances, which supersede the mitigating circumstances. And there is not a single mitigating circumstance which speaks in favor of the accused, and therefore all the accused deserve (the) death penalty. — Ujjwal Nikam

Supersede Quotes By Buzz Aldrin

The leader of an Earth organization who makes a commitment to history - of humans living on Earth, to begin permanent settlement/occupation of not the moon, but of another planet - this leader will have a legacy for history that will supersede Columbus, Genghis Khan or almost any recognized leader. — Buzz Aldrin

Supersede Quotes By Ralph Waldo Emerson

Intellectual tasting of life will not supersede muscular activity. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Supersede Quotes By Paul Mason

By this definition we are in the middle of a revolution: something wider than a pure political overthrow and narrower than the classic social revolutions of the twentieth century. Out of the very values and practices of free-market capitalism - individualism, choice, respect for human rights, the network, the flattened hierarchy - the masses have developed a new collective practice. They can bypass and supersede the machinery of power via, as Gorz predicted, an 'alternative network of relations'. — Paul Mason

Supersede Quotes By Darren Criss

I never let my politics supersede my manners. — Darren Criss

Supersede Quotes By Tiffanie DeBartolo

When you're twenty-three and you fall in love, you tend to think that love will supersede any problems. But no matter how much you love somebody, no matter how desperately you want a relationship to work, life can act as an oxidizer and corrode it to pieces. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Supersede Quotes By Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Islamic scholars developed a doctrine known as "abrogation" (an-Nasikh wa'l Mansukh), whereby Allah issues new revelations that supersede old ones. — Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Supersede Quotes By Matshona Dhliwayo

Spiritual riches supersede material riches. — Matshona Dhliwayo

Supersede Quotes By Lois Gibbs

It will take a massive effort to move society from corporate domination, in which industry's rights to pollute and damage health and the environment supersede the public's right to live, work, and play in safety. This is a political fight. The science is already there, showing that people's health is at risk. To win, we will need to keep building the movement, networking with one another, planning, strategizing, and moving forward. Our children's futures, and those of their unborn children, are at stake. — Lois Gibbs

Supersede Quotes By Thomas Paine

The Jews have made him [Yahweh] the assassin of the human species, to make room for the religion of the Jews. The Christians have made him the murderer of himself, and the founder of a new religion to supersede and expel the Jewish religion. And to find pretence and admission for these things, they must have supposed his power or his wisdom imperfect, or his will changeable; and the changeableness of the will is the imperfection of the judgement. — Thomas Paine

Supersede Quotes By Sara Maitland

Another of the things I started to do during this time was what Buddhists normally call "meditation" or, in Christian terms, "contemplative prayer". It began to supersede deipnosophy as my favorite hobby. — Sara Maitland

Supersede Quotes By Janvier Chouteu-Chando

In the world of today, human desires far supersede human needs. Waste, as you can see, is the result of all of those contradictions. That is how we ended up complicating our world. — Janvier Chouteu-Chando

Supersede Quotes By Ralph Waldo Emerson

There are many virtues in books, but the essential value is the adding of knowledge to our stock by the record of new facts, and, better, by the record of intuitions which distribute facts, and are the formulas which supersede all histories. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Supersede Quotes By J.C. Ryle

The Bible in the pulpit must never supersede the Bible at home. — J.C. Ryle

Supersede Quotes By Roderick L. Evans

If we are to experience true worship, our love for God has to supersede our love of anyone and anything else. — Roderick L. Evans

Supersede Quotes By George Washington

For the sake of humanity it is devoutly to be wished that the manly employment of agriculture and the humanizing benefits of commerce would supersede the waste of war and the rage of conquest; and the swords might be turned into ploughshares, the spears into pruning-hooks, and as the Scripture expresses it, the nations learn war no more. — George Washington

Supersede Quotes By Max Heindel

As the sun outshines the brightest star in the heavens, dispels every vestige of darkness and gives life and light to all beings, so, in a not too distant future, will the true religion of Christ supersede and obliterate all other religions, to the eternal benefit of mankind. — Max Heindel

Supersede Quotes By Anna Quindlen

It is interesting to note how often a technological development - such as Gutenberg's - promotes rather than eliminates that which it is supposed to supersede. — Anna Quindlen

Supersede Quotes By Melanie Joy

The path of the norm is the path of least resistance; it is the route we take when we're on auto-pilot and don't even realize we're following a course of action that we haven't consciously chosen. Most people who eat meat have no idea that they're behaving in accordance with the tenets of a system that has defined many of their values, preferences, and behaviors. What they call 'free choice' is, in fact, the result of a narrowly obstructed set of options that have been chosen for them. They don't realize, for instance, that they have been taught to value human life so far above certain forms of nonhuman life that it seems appropriate for their taste preferences to supersede other species' preference for survival. — Melanie Joy

Supersede Quotes By Billy Graham

Your yearning for God must supersede all other desires. It must be like a gnawing hunger and a burning thirst. — Billy Graham

Supersede Quotes By Matshona Dhliwayo

Inner riches supersede outer riches. — Matshona Dhliwayo

Supersede Quotes By Thomas Paine

This necessity, like a gravitating power, would soon form our newly arrived emigrants into society, the reciprocal blessing of which, would supersede, and render the obligations of law and government unnecessary while they remained perfectly just to each other; but as nothing but heaven is impregnable to vice, it will unavoidably happen, that in proportion as they surmount the first difficulties of emigration, which bound them together in a common cause, they will begin to relax in their duty and attachment to each other; and this remissness, will point out the necessity, of establishing some form of government to supply the defect of moral virtue. — Thomas Paine

Supersede Quotes By Robert Aickman

In the end I came to see that the true prophet of the modern world was Samuel Butler: when he suggested that the machine was an evolutionary development, destined to supersede man as the dominant species and reduce him to greenfly status, the status of machine-minder, homo mechanicus instead of homo sapiens; and to modify his nature accordingly. — Robert Aickman

Supersede Quotes By Quentin Crisp

For flavor, instant sex will never supersede the stuff you have to peel and cook. — Quentin Crisp

Supersede Quotes By Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hence, the less government we have, the better,
the fewer laws, and the less confided power. The antidote to this abuse of formalGovernment, is, the influence of private character, the growth of the Individual; the appearance of the principal to supersede the proxy; the appearance of the wise man, of whom the existing government, is, it must be owned, but a shabby imitation. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Supersede Quotes By George Santayana

In any close society it is more urgent to restrain others than to be free oneself. Hence the tendency for the central authority to absorb and supersede such as are local or delegated. — George Santayana

Supersede Quotes By John Calvin

This is why Paul upholds the teaching of the gospel in such a forceful way ... Seeing such an example and such a picture of man's great weakness and fickleness, Paul states that the truth of the gospel must supersede anything that we may devise ... he is showing us that we ought to know the substance of the doctrine which is brought to us in the name of God, so that our faith can be fully grounded upon it. Then we will not be tossed about with every wind, nor will we wander about aimlessly, changing our opinions a hundred times a day; we will persist in this doctrine until the end. This, in brief, is what we must remember. — John Calvin

Supersede Quotes By Matshona Dhliwayo

Brains supersede brawn. — Matshona Dhliwayo

Supersede Quotes By Charles Dickens

The present representative of the Dedlocks is an excellent master. He supposes all his dependents to be utterly bereft of individual characters, intentions, or opinions, and is persuaded that he was born to supersede the necessity of their having any. If he were to make a discovery to the contrary, he would be simply stunned - would never recover himself, most likely, except to gasp and die. — Charles Dickens

Supersede Quotes By VIRGIL PROFEANU

Knowledge makes us stronger, but power is not supersede by it (knowledge). Vulnerable is power without knowledge. Impracticable is knowledge without power. — VIRGIL PROFEANU

Supersede Quotes By Eliezer Yudkowsky

Once upon a time, there was a man who was convinced that he possessed a Great Idea. Indeed, as the man thought upon the Great Idea more and more, he realized that it was not just a great idea, but the most wonderful idea ever. The Great Idea would unravel the mysteries of the universe, supersede the authority of the corrupt and error-ridden Establishment, confer nigh-magical powers upon its wielders, feed the hungry, heal the sick, make the whole world a better place, etc. etc. etc.
The man was Francis Bacon, his Great Idea was the scientific method, and he was the only crackpot in all history to claim that level of benefit to humanity and turn out to be completely right. — Eliezer Yudkowsky

Supersede Quotes By Henry David Thoreau

No method nor discipline can supersede the necessity of being forever on the alert. What is a course of history, or philosophy, or poetry, or the most admirable routine of life, compared with the discipline of looking always at what is to be seen? Will you be a reader, a student merely, or a seer? — Henry David Thoreau

Supersede Quotes By Alan Palomo

I think the Internet has a way of coaching you into this state of mind where you think that every step you make needs to completely supersede the last. — Alan Palomo

Supersede Quotes By J. Martin Klotsche

Intelligence is derived from two words - inter and legere - inter meaning 'between' and legere meaning 'to choose'. An intelligent person, therefore, is one who has learned 'to choose between'. He knows that good is better than evil, that confidence should supersede fear, that love is superior to hate, that gentleness is better than cruelty, forbearance than intolerance, compassion than arrogance, and that truth has more virtue than ignorance. — J. Martin Klotsche

Supersede Quotes By Simon Schama

It is already apparent that the 'minimalist' view of the Bible as wholly fictitious and unhooked from historical reality, may be as much of a mistake as the biblical literalism it sought to supersede. — Simon Schama

Supersede Quotes By Stanislaw Lem

Science is turning into a monastery for the Order of Capitulant Friars. Logical calculus is supposed to supersede man as moralist. We submit to the blackmail of the 'superior knowledge' that has the temerity to assert that nuclear war can be, by derivation, a good thing, because this follows from simple arithmetic. — Stanislaw Lem

Supersede Quotes By Bill Walton

He told us that he had made a mistake by leaving the word love out of the Pyramid of Success. And that love is the single most powerful and important word in our language and culture. And until we allow the power of love to supersede the love of power, none of us has any chance of success at all. There — Bill Walton

Supersede Quotes By Justin Vernon

I won't forget those kind of things, but I just want to write them down and look at them. It's almost like when things like music come out and you're listening to a song and you have experiences with art or phenomena that supersede your simple relationship with them as just a piece of art. They're more than that. That's just what those quote are for me. They're big, they're important. — Justin Vernon

Supersede Quotes By Pablo Antonio Cuadra

The human condition ... is defined by the aspiration to always supersede oneself, which in turn requires nonconformity. — Pablo Antonio Cuadra

Supersede Quotes By Richard Jordan Gatling

It occurred to me that if I could invent a machine - a gun - which could by its rapidity of fire, enable one man to do as much battle duty as a hundred, that it would, to a large extent supersede the necessity of large armies, and consequently, exposure to battle and disease [would] be greatly diminished. — Richard Jordan Gatling

Supersede Quotes By Sam Harris

The moral truth here is obvious: anyone who feels that the interests of a blastocyst just might supersede the interests of a child with a spinal cord injury has had his moral sense blinded by religious metaphysics. — Sam Harris

Supersede Quotes By Rona Ambrose

I think there should be some way to find some kind of reasonable accommodation that allows the state to continue to say, you know, that women's rights supersede any kind of a cultural custom that's oppressive to women, but also potentially allows a woman to take the oath, I don't know, in a separate room. It would be up to the court to find some kind of cultural accommodation. — Rona Ambrose

Supersede Quotes By Janvier Chouteu-Chando

In today's world, human desires far supersede human needs. Waste, as you can see, is the result of that disparity. — Janvier Chouteu-Chando

Supersede Quotes By Thomas Babington Macaulay

I shall not be satisfied unless I produce something which shall for a few days supersede the last fashionable novel on the tables of young ladies. — Thomas Babington Macaulay

Supersede Quotes By Julie Ann Elliott-Morton

Feelings should never supersede rational thought ... so, if you feel that you've got the answer, you should think some more. — Julie Ann Elliott-Morton

Supersede Quotes By R.A. Lafferty

The law of levity is allowed to supersede the law of gravity. — R.A. Lafferty

Supersede Quotes By Julia Serano

Evidence that [feminine aesthetic preferences and ways of expressing oneself] may be hardwired comes from the fact that they typically appear early in childhood and often in contradiction to one's socialization. [ ... ] This indicates that some aspects of feminine verbal and aesthetic expression precede and/or supersede gender socialization. — Julia Serano

Supersede Quotes By Theodore Tilton

Journalism is an immense power, that threatens soon to supersede sermons, lectures, and books. — Theodore Tilton

Supersede Quotes By Adam Leith Gollner

Of all the wars that have taken place wince then, none has endured so long as the conflict between knowledge and belief. For centuries now, knowledge has attempted, unsuccessfully, to supersede belief. But the entire clash stems from a misapprehension of the nature of belief. We can't not believe; and we won't ever know everything. We know this much: knowledge remains an endless advance toward an end point that endlessly recedes. — Adam Leith Gollner

Supersede Quotes By Bruce Feiler

American culture really has two souls. And it's not a question of whether the culture becomes secularized. The culture never becomes one thing or the other. The culture is always two. The culture is always William Bradford and Jonathan Edwards. The culture is always Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison. America was born just in time to have two mentalities. We're like Jacob and Esau struggling in the womb. Secular people want to believe that we are a nation of the Enlightenment, and because of the Founding Fathers and the Constitution that secularism will supersede religion. Religious people want to believe that through the revival religion will supersede secularism. And both are wrong. "What's going to happen," he said, "is that there will continue to be a constant dynamic and tension between the two, running side by side.And they're going to keep on being about that for as long as there's an American identity worth talking about. — Bruce Feiler

Supersede Quotes By Lenny Gray

The desire of the potential customer to buy the product or service should supersede the sales rep's desire to sell it. Willingly walking away from a possible sale proves that the time line to take advantage of the discount is legitimate. — Lenny Gray

Supersede Quotes By John Updike

I drive my car to supermarket,
The way I take is superhigh,
A superlot is where I park it,
And Super Suds are what I buy.
Supersalesmen sell me tonic -
Super-Tone-O, for Relief.
The planes I ride are supersonic.
In trains, I like the Super Chief.
Supercilious men and women
Call me superficial - me,
Who so superbly learned to swim in
Superphosphate-fed foods feed me;
Superservice keeps me new.
Who would dare to supersede me,
Super-super-superwho? — John Updike

Supersede Quotes By John Adams

When philosophic reason is clear and certain by intuition or necessary induction, no subsequent revelation supported by prophecies or miracles can supersede it. — John Adams

Supersede Quotes By Thomas Sowell

A mere enumeration of government activity is evidence
often the sole evidence offered
of "inadequate" nongovernment institutions, whose "inability" to cope with problems "obviously" required state intervention. Government is depicted as acting not in response to its own political incentives and constraints but because it is compelled to do so by concern for the public interest: it "cannot keep its hands off" when so "much is at stake," when emergency "compels" it to supersede other decision making processes. Such a tableau simple ignores the possibility that there are political incentives for the production and distribution of "emergencies" to justify expansions of power as well as to use episodic emergencies as a reason for creating enduring government institutions. — Thomas Sowell

Supersede Quotes By Mary Beth Whitehead

Nature's laws have to supersede man's law. — Mary Beth Whitehead

Supersede Quotes By Simone Weil

When a country has political parties, sooner or later it becomes impossible to intervene effectively in public affairs without joining a party and playing the game. Whoever is concerned for public affairs will wish his concern to bear fruit. Those who care about the public interest must either forget their concern and turn to other things, or submit to the grind of the parties. In the latter case, they shall experience worries that will soon supersede their original concern for the public interest. — Simone Weil
