Being a fan of authentic Dada, I find today’s art – what I call ‘Bankers’ Dada’ – mind-numbingly dull. The most challenging work I’ve seen of late is by The British Art Resistance. Their document, ‘A Call for Heroes in an Age of Cowards’, is apt in these days of witless chancers.
For quotes, I have one document for general quotes; the other for happiness-related quotes, which I use for the ‘Moment of Happiness,’ my daily emails of happiness quotes.

Sound preservation is not only the history of our culture and our country but also a document of life in the world. There is something with sound that is so extraordinary that it can be preserved, that we can listen to a recording made in 1925 and be transported back to that time.
We all recall what is or was important to us and are astonished when it slips other people’s minds. Perhaps we dismiss as irrelevant matters of crucial concern to those we love. That’s life as most of us experience it, and which few movies document with such understated acuity as ‘Boyhood’ does.
If you come at the Bible as if it’s a document of encyclopedic information, you’ve pretty much killed any kind of life change in a seeker and unbeliever.

If the price of a burger goes up 5 cents, and the minimum wage that you have received is going up from $7.25 to $15 an hour – and there have been a number of studies that document just how much the price of a burger might go up if you increase the minimum wage. You match the costs, and the benefits far outweigh the costs.

I don’t differentiate game design and script; it is one and only document. I think that one of the biggest problem with storytelling in games is that people tend to separate story and interactivity. Both should be conceived as one entity, each using the other.
I think it’s a great document of John Stevens’ originality. At that time he was already much more fully formed in his conception than I was. I was sort of struggling to keep up, and sometimes it’s pretty obvious.

Our laws need to reflect the evolution of technology and the changing expectations of American society. This is why the Constitution is often called a ‘living’ document.

I have been so cooperative with Eddie and LeAnn for the sake of my children. I even went and signed and notarized a document saying they could take my kids out of the country to Mexico on vacation. I wouldn’t want to deprive them of such a great opportunity.
I saw ‘Billy Elliot’ again, and what I loved about it was the way it had become a social document, a reminder of what happened with the mining communities in the ’80s.

I wrote a 20-page document, before I was ever hired, on exactly how the visuals of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ would be approached, how we’d look at creating a new type of space epic. That’s exactly what the movie is today – absolutely everybody has adhered to that original document.
It’s this weird binary where I’m getting media images and narratives thrown at me all the time through something I hold in my hand, and that’s never happened to other generations.

The Iraq Study Group’s report is a very respectable cover document for American surrender in Iraq.

The National Defense Strategy remains our guiding document, and everything we do should support its stated objectives.
I happen to miss the Constitution; I thought it was a good document.

If we had a flat tax code rather than a 70,000-page document full of cronyism and favors, bureaucrats and elected officials wouldn’t have the power to do you any favors. That’s what we need.

We have our Upside Down document which describes its rules and its mythology in quite a bit of detail, but I think we’re just going to slowly parse that out, and maybe not even fully use all of it.
Pope Francis has mentioned several times in public prior to ‘Amoris Laetitia”s release that lack of work was keeping young people from marriage. He has also riffed on married life and ‘mothers-in-law,’ but this document shows that, even more than a theologian, he is a pastor.

I used to say that the Constitution is not a living document. It’s dead, dead, dead. But I’ve gotten better. I no longer say that. The truth is that the Constitution is not one that morphs. It’s an enduring Constitution, not a changing Constitution. That is what I’ve meant when I’ve said that the Constitution is dead.
In a democratic country, when a man is accused, he’s accused from a document issued by the public attorney.
The U.S. constitution is an extraordinary document. In my view, it should not be amended often.
If I was a CIA front company, what would I want to be able to do? Well, I would want to be able to land at military airfields as a civilian, so there’s got to be some document that the Air Force or the Army has that would list all the civilian aircraft that are cleared to land at military bases.
The notion that it is improper to look beyond the borders of the United States in grappling with hard questions has a certain kinship to the view that the U.S. Constitution is a document essentially frozen in time as of the date of its ratification.

Here, I am looking for a document issued by a public attorney. I don’t find. He is accused by the political leaders of the coalition, by his enemies, who said that he is guilty. That he deserves to be killed.
It’s very difficult to get any footage of yourself doing what you love unless you have a friend who’s a photographer or videographer and wants to document you. That was really the idea and the goal from the beginning: to help people get a good photo, and then it was to help people get a good video.
I binge write, basically. I do a lot of prep, research, setup. I’ll have a pretty detailed outline. Sort of like a beat outline. And then I’ll add little notes and dialogue ideas, and I’ll just create a 20-page document.
We have a tremendous lack of knowledge of how far we have gotten away from the Constitution of the United States. Democrats and Republicans alike have taken us away from the original intent. You see, I believe in this document as our founding fathers intended it.
Mere recording of an event will not make it a historical document. It will become obsolete with time. Only those that emotionally connect with the audience will stand the test of time.
