Roger Scruton
Animals are just pure, uncomplicated entities of creation from God. They live like the Maasai do in Kenya-for each day is forever to them and the “Now” is what they live in. You can get aggravated with your pets and yell at them, but in a matter of minutes they are licking your hand again in love.
Sylvia Browne

The ego is first and foremost a bodily ego; it is not merely a surface entity, but is itself the projection of a surface.

Sigmund Freud
The Chancellor, the late Chancellor, was only partly correct, he was obsolete. But so was the State, the entity he worshipped. Any state, any entity, any ideology that fails to recognize the worth, the dignity, the rights of man, that state is obsolete. A case to be filed under ‘M’ for mankind… in the Twilight Zone.

The Palestinian revolution’s basic concern is the uprooting of the Zionist entity from our land and liberating it.
Yasser Arafat
Bigger brands like Shinola are capitalizing on what all of us small companies did. Shinola is just totally fake. It’s a corporate entity that’s taking advantage of what everybody else has done. They say it’s all about made in U.S., but one Wal-Mart hires more employees than their whole company.
Mark McNairy

Anthony Burgess
The universe is a complete unique entity. Everything and everyone is bound together with some invisible strings. Do not break anyone’s heart; do not look down on weaker than you.

David Gordon Green
And so much of these plant psychedelic entities are at least 4,000 years old.

State sanctioned marriage is a civil contract period. A contract is not a judgment of moral value. It is a legal agreement between two parties that testifies to a meeting of minds between those consenting entities. It is not a religious act or rite and so has nothing to do with Adam and Eve or Steve or even Harvey.
Harvey Fierstein

Margrethe II of Denmark

Sophie Ellis-Bextor
The notion of a conscious model of oneself as an individual entity actively trying to establish epistemic relations to the world and to oneself, I think, comes very close to what we traditionally mean by notions like “subjectivity”.

What of course I would like to be writing is the story of the Red and White Dwarves and their Remembering Mirror, their space rocket (powered by anti-gravity), their attendant entities Hadron, Gluon, Pion, Lepton, and Muon, and the Charmed Quarks and the Coloured Quarks. But we can’t all be physicists.

Channeling is a practice that is very popular right now. It is very dangerous. It is a process in which you are opening yourself up to astral entities and inviting them to come into you. This is silly.

Pentti Linkola
Today the Internet is run by private sector interests within the United States under the supervision of a nonprofit entity formed by the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Ramez Naam
The future and the past are equally meaningless because they are nebulous entities, times that do not exist, containing events which have no echo because they are gone, or which hold no import because they are yet to happen. What is important is the here and now, and now, and now, and the spaces between the nows.
Tim Lebbon
When you have God come amongst you to support and sustain you, why grovel through crude vulgar entities? Avoid places where they bargain in terms of gifts, donations, for Spiritual guidance and Transmission.

Ratan Tata
The unconscious is not a demoniacal monster, but a natural entity which, as far as moral sense, aesthetic taste, and intellectual judgment go, is completely neutral.It only becomes dangerous when our conscious attitude to it is hopelessly wrong.

Bill Frist
To empower women, power must be given to them, presumably by an entity that already has it. And that entity is the patriarchy. This also implies that women must be on the receiving end, waiting – politely – to be empowered. Very Victorian-era courtship, isn’t it?
Sallie Krawcheck
Public Broadcasting System an entity designed to create an informed citizenry rather than to deliver consumers to advertisers.
Pat Mitchell
Imagine if someone like John Lennon or Bob Marley, Sid Vicious, Picasso, whomever, were doing their work, and some corporation, some CEO, some branding entity was saying to you, ‘Well, you can do that, but you’ve got to remove this aspect of your work.’ There would no longer be that purity anymore.
Madonna Ciccone
Israel is a hideous entity in the middle east which will undoubtedly be annihilated.

The state is the great fictitious entity by which everyone seeks to live at the expense of everyone else.
Frederic Bastiat
I told myself ‘Everything is a being! The shout that passes into the air is an entity like an animal, since it is born, produces a movement, and is again transformed, in order to die. So the fearful mind that believes in incorporeal beings is not wrong. What are they?

Zac Posen
This is a human form in which every Divine entity, every Divine principle, that is to say, all the names and forms ascribed by man to God, are manifest… You are very fortunate that you have the chance to experiences the bliss of the vision of the form, which is the form of all gods, now, in this life itself.
Sathya Sai Baba

Lewis F. Powell, Jr.
Disease is a disturbed condition, not a thing or entity.
Daniel D. Palmer

Todd McFarlane

Process and Reality
Alfred North Whitehead

“I warn you,” the boy went on. “I am a magician of great power. I control many terrifying entities. This being you see before you” – here I rolled my shoulders back and puffed my chest up menacingly – “is but the meanest and least impressive of my slaves.” Here I slumped my shoulders and stuck my stomach out.
Jonathan Stroud
We obviously – I’m from Michigan, so we saw a disproportionate number of these social media ads targeting us, targeting our population. So I want to close that loophole. That’s my amendment, so that no foreign entity can buy an ad for or against a candidate in our democracy.
Elissa Slotkin
The key issue as to whether or not a non-biological entity deserves rights really comes down to whether or not it’s conscious…. Does it have feelings?
Ray Kurzweil

Frans de Waal
I am not a morose person, but I would rather not be here. I don’t have any reverence for life, only for the entities themselves. I would rather see a blank space where I am. This will sound like fruitcake stuff again but at least I wouldn’t be harming anything.
Ingrid Newkirk
Most of my monsters fail altogether to satisfy my sense of the cosmic – the abnormally chromatic entity in The Colour Out of Space being the only one of the lot which I take any pride in.
H. P. Lovecraft
The Emmys seem like an entity unto themselves that have an agenda that sometimes corresponds to quality, sometimes doesn’t.
Chris Bauer
Death doesn’t exist. It never did, it never will. But we’ve drawn so many pictures of it, so many years, trying to pin it down, comprehend it, we’ve got to thinking of it as an entity, strangely alive and greedy. All it is, however, is a stopped watch, a loss, an end, a darkness. Nothing.
Ray Bradbury
Software entities (classes, modules, functions, etc.) should be open for extension, but closed for modification.
Bertrand Meyer
I used a lot of quotes when I was young. To make me sound mature, to make me feel like I wasn’t the second-class entity that I’d always thought I was
Gerard Jones
Dualists hold that body and soul are separate entities and that the soul will continue beyond the existence of the physical body.
Michael Shermer
Any entity capable of intelligently designing something as improbable as Dutchman’s Pipe (or a universe) would have to be even more improbable than a Dutchman’s Pipe. Far from terminating the vicious regress, God aggravates it with a vengeance.
Richard Dawkins
As long as in this territory west of the Jordan river there is only one political entity called Israel, it is going to be either non-Jewish or non-democratic. If this bloc of millions of Palestinians cannot vote, that will be an apartheid state.
Ehud Barak
Corporations are economic entities, to be sure, but they are also social institutions that must justify their existence by their overall contribution to society.
Henry Mintzberg
I’m perennially intrigued how people who lead largely evidence-based lives can, in a belief-based part of their mind, be certain that an invisible, divine entity created an entire universe just for us, or that the government is stockpiling space aliens in a secret desert location.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
When our government is spoken of as some menacing, threatening, foreign entity, it ignores the fact that in our democracy, government is us
Barack Obama
Where there is flagrant abuse of corporate entities we must and will seek to tackle it.
Vince Cable
If you or the devil or anyone else could remove you from Christ’s hand, then that entity would be greater than Christ, and the eternal life He gave you would not be eternal at all. That’s an impossible equation.
Tony Evans
Architects, painters, and sculptors must recognize anew and learn to grasp the composite character of a building both as an entity and in its separate parts. Only then will their work be imbued with the architectonic spirit . . .
Walter Gropius
I’ve had years of bizarre hallucinogenic magical experiences in which I believed I had communicated with entities that may well have been disassociated parts of my own personality or conceivably some independent entity of a metaphysical nature. Both would seem equally interesting.
Alan Moore
Are we all clear that we want to build something that can aspire to be a world power? In other words, not just a trading bloc but a political entity. Do we realise that our nation states, taken individually, would find it far more difficult to assert their existence and their identity on the world stage.
Romano Prodi
Every portal coming into this country is being attacked by those who would harvest information, both national security secrets and just the common information of private individuals and private individuals. That crime is going on, every day, on a single entity known as the Internet.
Darrell Issa
The United Nations cannot do anything, and never could; it is not an animate entity or agent. It is a place, a stage, a forum and a shrine… a place to which powerful people can repair when they are fearful about the course on which their own rhetoric seems to be propelling them.
Conor Cruise O’Brien
If I can really sustain myself and become a powerful entity on the internet, it’ll transfer into real life. So right now I’m putting everything into the net.
Lil B
Bodies are real entities. Surfaces and lines are but fictitious entities. A surface without depth, a line without thickness, was never seen by any man; no; nor can any conception be seriously formed of its existence.
Jeremy Bentham
The attributes of liminality are necessarily ambiguous… Liminal entities are neither here nor there; they are betwixt and between the positions assigned and arrayed by law, custom, convention and ceremonial.
Victor Turner
Society in its full sense . . . is never an entity separable from the individuals who compose it.
Ruth Benedict
We all live in some kind of home, so the idea that our home could be invested with a supernatural entity is kind of frightening, I think.
James Wan
Evolution is a tightly coupled dance, with life and the material environment as partners. From the dance emerges the entity Gaia.
James Lovelock
The theoretically unrestricted right to develop power, to wage war against other states, is antisocial and is doubly dangerous, because the state as a mass entity represents a low moral and intellectual level.
Christian Lous Lange
Executives can no longer hide behind the corporate veil. They need to be accountable for what their companies do, because entities are responsible for socially irresponsible behavior.
Simon Mainwaring
The real underlying value comes if you can put a company back into a running state and it becomes a successful viable entity if it continues to repay loans.
Chanda Kochhar
Hitler’s oratory moved people and appealed to their hopes and dreams. But his speeches malevolently twisted hope into some gnarled ghastly entities, and appealed to the latent, darkest prejudices of Germans.
Richard M Perloff
What is more obscene: the idea that one can apologize for the hubris and deceit that is Obama and his health care, or the actual need some have for an apology from an entity so evil that he would toy with the lives of millions as though they were insects and he God? This is hard to tell.
Ilana Mercer
People everywhere talk about Islam and the West. Presumably that has some relationship to reality, that these are entities that have some meaning and they do. Of course the core ofthat reality is differences in religion.
Samuel P. Huntington
It’s a relationship like to a crusty Zen master, or something like that. And it is really like another entity because you cannot predict the answers.
Terence McKenna
Blaming TV as an abstract entity is nonsensical. It’s our hand on the remote. There’s a world out there outside the tube.
Carlos Ruiz Zafon
President Ahmadinejad said that the Zionist state of Israel should no longer exist as a political entity. This has always been the policy of successive Iranian governments such as those of President Khatami and President Rafsanjani.
Mohammad Marandi
Private equity firms aren’t necessarily evil by definition. There are many stories of successful turnarounds fueled by private equity, often involving multiple floundering businesses that are rolled into a single entity, eliminating duplicative overhead.
Matt Taibbi
To change your phrase somewhat, I know that I like an art where disparate elements form an entity.
James Schuyler
Nevertheless, all of us who work in quantum physics believe in the reality of a quantum world, and the reality of quantum entities like protons and electrons.
John Polkinghorne
Allowing a private rather than a public entity to take over your toll road merely means that your tolls will have to be that much higher to cover their more expensive debt.
Thomas Frank
The world is a place where the extraordinary can sit just beside the ordinary with the thinnest of boundaries; that even in environments inhospitable to man, all sort of entities might thrive.
Jodi Picoult
As John Maynard Keynes taught us in the 1930s, in such situations, government is the only entity with both the motive and the ability to boost total spending by enough to put people back to work. As it happens there are long lists of important public projects that cry out to be done.
Robert H. Frank
Hezbollah is in Syria and Iraq and Yemen, so people should not focus on Hezbollah that it’s a Lebanese entity only, but it’s something regional.
Saad Hariri
‘Muslim’ is not a political party. ‘Muslim’ is not a single culture. Muslims go to war with each other. There are more Muslims in India, Russia and China than in most Muslim-majority nations. ‘Muslim’ is not a homogenous entity.
Maajid Nawaz
I enter negotiations with Chairman Arafat, the leader of the PLO, the representative of the Palestinian people, with the purpose to have coexistence between our two entities, Israel as a Jewish state and Palestinian state, entity, next to us, living in peace.
Yitzhak Rabin
In the e-filing system, the accountant has the user identity and password of each company. This would potentially allow a rogue accountant to play serious mischief with the accounts of an entity.
Sucheta Dalal
РїРѕСЃРѕР» Ирака РіРѕРІРѕСЂРёС‚ Our fight – the fight is against ISIS as an entity, as an identity, and as a threat to our culture, our heritage and certainly for the minorities who it’s been able to exterminate or try to enslave and others.
Lukman Faily
I always knew that if I built my name up as an entity, that would be bigger than me just rappin’.
Paul Wall
More than half of Guatemalans are pureblooded Indians, descendants of the proud Maya-Quiche tribes. In their mist-shrouded villages, the Indians worship the corn god and the rain god, only vaguely concerned with the political entity known as Guatemala.
Stephen Kinzer
Presenting the American songbook as a living, breathing entity that’s expanding all the time is very important.
Chris Thile
Knowledge and power doesn’t come from an entity, it comes from within yourself. What can these things tell you, to put five bucks on Snowflake in the third race?
Frederick Lenz
I therefore suggested that WWF should invite leaders from the major religions to meet together to discuss what – if any – responsibility they felt they had for the natural environment as a “sacred” entity.
Prince Philip
It is obvious that the Internet has become such a video-driven entity. With broadband becoming ubiquitous, viewers and advertisers are looking for professional-quality videos.
Gil Penchina
The most powerful entities on earth are not governments but the multi-national corporations that see women as their territory, indoctrinating them with their versions of beauty, health and hygiene, medicating them and cultivating their dependency in order to medicate them some more.
Germaine Greer
‘Lost’ is an entity of its own. It’s still such a culture touchstone that I think it’ll be something people go back to for a long time, like ‘Star Trek.’ I’m just so amazed by the show’s popularity.
Sonya Walger
The safety of the flying public should not be for sale. Handing air traffic control over to a private entity partly governed by the airlines is both a risk and liability we can’t afford to take.
Bill Nelson
I look at is as one single entity. I dehumanize the audience. This way, I don’t get nervous, you know?
Kenny Hickey
By then running had entered the realm of the metaphysical. First there came the action of running, and accompanying it there was this entity known as me. I run; therefore I am.
Haruki Murakami
It really does not matter whether one believes a mystical entity created the universe 5,000 or 10,000 million years ago – both are equally irrational, unsubstantiated claims of no fundamental validity.
Harry Kroto
The funny thing is, because I was doing a lot of theater when I was a kid, and a lot of that was musical theater, as I got older I became more interested in acting as a separate entity and music as a separate entity, like songwriting and production and recording and playing music.
Guy Pearce
It’s basic due diligence to make sure that whenever a foreign entity acquires a controlling interest in a U.S. company that national security isn’t threatened.
Dave Reichert
It’s critically important that we have governments to work with, that we have entities to work with. President Hadi has been a good partner in that, and we would hope that the next set of leaders that govern Yemen will also take the same approach to cooperation with the United States.
Chuck Hagel
A lot of millennials really want a company that signs their paycheck, or whoever it is that signs their paycheck, to be an entity that reflects to them in a way that is consistent with their personal idea of who they are.
Jason Kander
The mainstream press and television do a very soft job of covering the press, either as corporate entities or as news organizations.
Sydney Schanberg
We believe that we know something about the things themselves when we speak of trees, colors, snow, and flowers; and yet we possess nothing but metaphors for things – metaphors which correspond in no way to the original entities.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Awakening the mystical kundalini prematurely is dangerous, because unless you have refined your being, you’ll get all screwed up, entities, weird powers … strange things. That is why I don’t teach anyone how to open up the chakras.
Frederick Lenz
I have been in business a long time. I never had a successful relationship or partnership with any entity by issuing an ultimatum.
Casey Wasserman
A living entity becomes aware of his Spiritual Identity and becomes aware of the Supreme Personality of Godhead only when he comes accross a Sprititual Teacher.
Bhakti Charu Swami
There can be no such thing as “limited government,” because there is no way to control an entity that in principle enjoys a monopoly of power.
Joseph Sobran
Any entity – no matter how many tentacles it has – has a soul.
Guy Consolmagno
All entities move and nothing remains still.
If you make something, it’s an artifact. It’s something that somebody or some corporate entity has caused to come into being. A great many human beings have thought about each of the artifacts that surround us. Different degrees of intelligence and attention have been brought to bear on anything.
William Gibson
Corporations, government entities and media conglomerates-fear the ideology of an animal liberationist could catch hold and topple them from their golden thrones, reducing their animal product profits.
Charlotte Laws
Stand-up comedy is mine: it’s my entity; it’s my brand; I own it. I do it when I want to do it.
Kevin Hart
If the users don’t control the program, the program controls the users. With proprietary software, there is always some entity, the “owner” of the program, that controls the program and through it, exercises power over its users. A nonfree program is a yoke, an instrument of unjust power.
Richard Stallman
Earth is a living entity. And if it’s a living organism, then we have to have a reverence for all life. Food should be local, organic rather than grown with chemical fertilizer, pesticides, and herbicides.
Satish Kumar
All of the economic signals in the marketplace are essentially subsidizing the use of dirty fossil fuels and penalizing clean energy. There’s really only one entity in society that can solve that problem, and that is government. And the air is a scarce resource.
Jay Inslee
I am by heritage a Jew, by citizenship a Swiss, and by makeup a human being, and only a human being, without any special attachment to any state or national entity whatsoever.
Albert Einstein
But in the US, when you have two separate cultures, each with its right, each of which has come to exist in this political entity in the last couple hundred years, each feeling like, “I have the right to hold onto my culture,” and that’s what makes it difficult.
Michael Emerson
You never really know what the director has got in his mind as far as the scene visually and art direction wise, etc. Even if you do, sometimes there’s a side of things that don’t necessarily gel the way people intend. So there a bit of a mystical entity, film.
Guy Pearce
Last Thursday, our Supreme Court backed that local governments can co-opt private property, and give it to another private entity, for economic development.
Cliff Stearns
The complexity of software is an essential property, not an accidental one. Hence, descriptions of a software entity that abstract away its complexity often abstracts away its essence.
Fred Brooks
Good is that which elevates the mind, and evil, is that which degrades the mind. Social virtue and vice are temporal entities. These things have nothing to do with a person’s relationship with the Supreme.
Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar
I have a stronger personality than Shah Rukh. He is an entity on his own, and I don’t consider him a superstar when I’m with him in the house. He’s just my husband, and I respect him as that.
Gauri Khan
I think in the wake of Katrina, the Coast Guard may well have been the only entity or agency that came out of that exercise free of fault and free of blame.
Howard Coble
The misconception which has haunted philosophic literature throughout the centuries is the notion of ‘independent existence.’ There is no such mode of existence; every entity is to be understood in terms of the way it is interwoven with the rest of the universe.
Alfred North Whitehead
My creativity is an entity unto its own.
Carole King
If the administration asks for $5 and Congress appropriates $4, that’s what they get. If the government creates a subterfuge by going outside the government to raise money through a private entity, that’s a violation of the law.
Lamar Alexander
With dancing, so much is about sexuality and sensuality and without life experience it becomes much more of a performance, rather than a living, breathing entity from the soul.
Nigel Lythgoe
But, you know, we have these entrenched entities – and I’m talking about both Republicans and Democrats – who believe that when you’re elected to office, you become some kind of member of the aristocracy, and that anyone who challenges you is attacking you and is unpatriotic. This is foolishness.
Benjamin Carson
Canada emerged as a political entity with boundaries largely determined by the fur trade. These boundaries included a vast north temperate land area extending from the Atlantic to the Pacific and dominated by the Canadian Shield. The present Dominion emerged not in spite of geography but because of it.
Harold Innis
If I look at who I am as a person and where my interests lie, I figured that going from Tommy End to Aleister Black was almost like a possession. So, one entity to the other.
Aleister Black
ISIS is a terrorist entity whose barbarities have been condemned by all those who value our common humanity. In the current political climate, when hate crimes are rising and political rhetoric is increasingly divisive, this is all the more shocking.
Jonathan Sacks
Marriage helps young couples to raise themselves towards God. The bond of marriage unites two souls so firmly that though they are physically two separate entities, their souls are merged into one harmonious whole.
Dada Vaswani
The misunderstanding of passion and reason, as if the latter were an independent entity and not rather a system of relations between various passions and desires; and as if every passion did not possess its quantum of reason.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Ultimate Reality, if such an entity can be postulated, is ineffable.
Paul Feyerabend
‘Upstairs Downstairs’ somehow bestrode the different genres that had come before it to create a new drama entity. I suppose that’s one of the reasons why it became so instantly popular.
Ed Stoppard
Black women, whose experience is unique, are seldom recognized as a particular social-cultural entity and are seldom thought to be important enough for serious scholarly consideration.
Barbara Smith
An entrepreneur is someone who, almost artistically, designs a living entity which embodies the values, beliefs, and ambitions of the creator
Jake Lodwick
The intelligence community really is a vast bureaucratic entity, and it has been politicized in ways that are not effective for the gathering of intelligence and giving it to senior policymakers.
Valerie Plame
It’s been a thrilling journey – I have had to really learn that an orchestra is an entity – it’s a creature. I have been calling it the dragon and the conductor is the dragon tamer. And you just have to … ride and don’t let go and you will be fine.
Tori Amos
I think of every book as a single entity, and some have later gone on to become a series, often at the request of readers.
Lois Lowry
My audience expects cold, hard truth. They don’t expect me to dance around it. They expect me to say it the way they think it. That’s part of my brand. If I don’t do that, then my audience goes, ‘What’s up? Is he sick or something? What’s wrong with him?’ The entity has a brand.
Roland Martin
Start-ups often die in the first 18 to 24 months because of formative mistakes, like choosing a bad co-founder or the wrong corporate entity or an inappropriate platform. Ninety percent of the companies the Founder Institute has created are alive because we’ve helped them avoid those mistakes.
Adeo Ressi
Books exist for me not as physical entities with pages and binding, but in the province of my mind.
Sara Sheridan
Entities should not be posited unnecessarily.
William of Ockham
if you think of a relationship as a living entity, I guess it’s one thing if the missing two percent is, like, a fingernail. But when it’s the heart, that’s a whole different ball of wax.
Jodi Picoult
The enemy resembles us. Therefore, he needs to be approached not as an assembly of ‘targets’ to be destroyed one by one; but as a living, intelligent entity capable of acting and reacting.
Martin Van Creveld
I generally use ‘threat intelligence’ when I’m talking about a product packaged and sold by a dedicated commercial entity and ‘information sharing’ as something that happens between security teams at trusted parties without renumeration.
Alex Stamos
Today it is very popular to do a thing we call channeling. People are trying to channel entities and have these beings come through them. In my estimation this is downright ridiculous and dangerous.
Frederick Lenz
There is no ‘thing’ to let go of, but a concept, an idea of an ego that burdens us. As soon as we posit a ‘thing’ to let go of, we’re in trouble. We need to change our view of reality, not attack a nonexistent entity.
Sharon Salzberg
I felt it [Shakespeare’s Coriolanus] is sort of an examination of our dysfunction as a nationalistic, tribal entities. I think the world is rocking and cracking open in weird and worrying places. And I think Coriolanus, the play, reflected that.
Ralph Fiennes
The immediacy of mystic experience simply means that we know God just as we know other objects. God is not a mathematical entity or a system of concepts mutually related to one another and having no reference to experience.
Muhammad Iqbal
To be an abstraction does not mean that an entity is nothing. It merely means that its existence is only a factor of a more concrete element of nature.
Alfred North Whitehead
The music becomes something that is its own entity.
Herbie Hancock
Man may be defined as the animal that can say ”I,” that can be aware of himself as a separate entity.
Erich Fromm
You may think of Google as a single organic entity, but in 2011 it bought a different company every week.
Zephyr Teachout
Any Name of God in any language is worthy of respect but the original Name of God in the Semitic language is Allah. This (Semitic) is the language of the celestial entities. It is by this Name that the angels call upon God and it is attached to the Title of every Prophet.
Riaz Ahmed Gohar Shahi
The senses do not enable us to cognize any entity in its Being; they merely serve to announce the ways in which ‘external’ Things within-the-world are useful or harmful for human creatures encumbered with bodies….they tell us nothing about entities in their Being.
Martin Heidegger
Every native species, however humble in appearance…has its place in the nation’s heritage. It is a masterpiece of evolution, an ancient, multifaceted entity that shares the land with us.
E. O. Wilson
We will not stand idly by while any entity – be it a foreign power or corporation – seeks to criminally or unfairly undermine our country’s place in the world.
Christopher A. Wray
The linguistic and literary reality of the biblical tradition is folkloristic in essence. The concept of a benei Israel … is a reflection of no sociopolitical entity of the historical state of Israel of the Assyrian period
Thomas L. Thompson
There are some qualities, some incorporate things, that have a double life, which thus is made. A type os twin entity which springs from matter and light, envinced in solid and shade.
Edgar Allan Poe
I give up on pop music. As far as a commercial entity, as far as pop music goes, I quit; I absolutely throw in the towel. I can’t handle it. I can’t do it. I can’t be what they need you to be.
Ry Cooder
If we dwell in spirit, or Soul, we are living in happiness, for Soul is a happy entity. It is seldom anything else. When the mind presses in on it too strongly, however, it withdraws and leaves the body under the tyranny of mind.
Paul Twitchell
I never felt happy with the idea that part of what I do is to be an object to be looked at. I thought of my public persona as an entity separate to myself.
Juliana Hatfield
You have a soft spot in your heart for each movie, and you’re doing certain things. You’re learning as you’re going, as a director, and each movie is its own entity.
Chris Buck
As a person progresses along the path of power, they attract certain forces and beings from other dimensions, who feel the power that you are storing. Sometimes they want some of it; sometimes they want to ruin you. We call these beings entities.
Frederick Lenz
The IMF and the World Bank, the most opaque and secretive entities, put millions into NGOs who fight against “corruption” and for “transparency.” They want the Rule of Law – as long as they make the laws. They want transparency in order to standardise a situation, so that global capital can flow without any impediment.
Arundhati Roy
When modern physics exerts itself to establish the world’s formula, what occurs thereby is this: the being of entities has resolved itself into the method of the totally calculable.
Martin Heidegger
Entities can see a certain amount because they are outside of the physical dimensional plane.
Frederick Lenz
Abstraction is a mental process we use when trying to discern what is essential or relevant to a problem; it does not require a belief in abstract entities.
Tom G. Palmer
What’s very interesting is that when we look at human bodies, we look at our body as a singular entity when it turns out, no, if I could reduce us to a small size as the size of a cell and put you inside your body, rather than seeing a singular entity, what you would see is a metropolis with 50 trillion citizens.
Bruce Lipton
Revolution is born as a social entity within the oppressor society.
Paulo Freire
Money is a living entity, and it responds to energy exactly the same way you do. It is drawn to those who welcome it, those who respect it. Wouldn’t you rather be with people who respect you and who don’t want you to be something you’re not? Your money feels the same way.
Suze Orman
Whenever we seek to avoid the responsibility for our own behavior, we do so by attempting to give that responsibility to some other individual or organization or entity. But this means we then give away our power to that entity.
M. Scott Peck
What we call the ‘world’ and the ‘universe’ is only one frequency range in an infinite number sharing the same space. The interdimensional entities I write about are able to move between these frequencies or dimensions and manipulate our lives.
David Icke
Iife/personality must be taken as a total entity. All of your life is all of your life, and no one incident stands alone.
Nikki Giovanni
I’m always looking for a kind of new musical entity to sort of move into a motion picture venue.
Brian De Palma
In Europe, radio stations are owned by a variety of different entities, so there is less uniformity on radio programming and more opportunity for artists to get radio play and break overseas.
Wendy Starland
Charles is Charles. Wale is Wale. It’s two separate entities that have nothing to do with each other and probably will never have anything to do with each other and I wish him the best.
I’ve always seen the bright lights of the angels, and I know that lower-entities can’t disguise this light, because it only comes from the Love of God.
Doreen Virtue
Writers who want to interfere with adaptations of their work are basically undemocratic. The book still stands as an entity on its own.
Jim Crace
The doctor I would want for myself or for anyone else I cared about would be one who understands that disease is more than just a clinical entity; it is an experience and a metaphor, with a message that must be listened to.
Bernie Siegel
I don’t have any relationship with God and I’ve never wanted it. I don’t believe in fate or in any superior entity; if a plane crashes and people die, it’s not because Heaven said so.
Fernando Alonso
Out of all the opulences of a living entity its humility which pleases Krishna. Other opulences can also please Krishna if offered with humility.
Radhanath Swami
Everything that makes diversity of kinds, of species, differences, properties… everything that consists in generation, decay, alteration and change is not an entity, but a condition and circumstance of entity and being, which is one, infinite, immobile, subject, matter, life, death, truth, lies, good and evil.
Giordano Bruno
I will never cede the authority of our country or our security to any other nation. I’ll never give a veto over American security to any other entity – not a nation, not a country, not an institution.
John F. Kerry
What the American people don’t understand is how Merrill Lynch or AIG or Lehman Brothers can reward people, and the entity fails. Not only do the shareholders lose, but the entities lose.
Richard Grasso
Such is our need to shower blame on some distant entity when it is we who lack the courage to face up to what is there before us.
Jose Saramago
Sci-fi novels are concerned with problems faced by all of humanity. Crises in sci-fi mostly threaten humanity as a whole. This is a unique and treasurable trait inherent in the genre – that the human race is perceived as a single entity, undivided.
Liu Cixin
I understand that words can mean different things to different people, and, further, that people can have different relationships with complex abstract entities such as Buddhism. To me, anyway, the entity in my life that conflicts with my creativity is Buddhism.
Quentin S. Crisp
When a child is born, the entire Universe has to shift and make room. Another entity capable of free will, and therefore capable of becoming God, has been born.
Ina May Gaskin
Writers seem mesmerized by the state – the temporal entity. The word ‘perestroika’ is impressed somehow on our minds. But that is not the duty of a writer.
Joseph Brodsky
Consumer groups fought hard to provide investor protections for special entities such as pension funds, schools, and municipalities who purchase swaps. No comparable protection exists in the futures market.
Daniel L. Doctoroff
The main thing that’s important to me is getting to do whatever project it is the way that I do what I do, and that’s different. To go to an entity – whether it’s a traditional film studio or some newer company, or HBO, Amazon or Netflix – they would have to know that I need to work the way I work.
Christopher Guest
Absolute consciousness is manifest here in every circumstance of daily life because it is everywhere full and perfect. Consciousness is said to be the cause of all things because it is everywhere emergent as each manifest entity.
A lot is being done to bring additional protective measures, particularly the critical infrastructure locations around the United States, … There is a very active … program of
coordination on this particular period of time with both public and private entities and at the federal, state and local levels.
Condoleezza Rice
Let us create extraordinary words, on condition that they be put to the most ordinary use and that the entity they designate be made to exist in the same way as the most common object.
Gilles Deleuze
Future public education will require involvement and collaboration among various local, civic, private and nonprofit entities, a concept I like to refer to as community entrepreneurship.
Donald Bren
The People, though we think of a great entity when we use the word, means nothing more than so many millions of individual men.
James Bryce
We now live in a world where accessibility is paramount. So I think we just juxtapose that a little bit and maybe play the internet like a game because we don’t like to be exposed as individuals, we like to be an entity.
Matthew Healy
For you, the state is an entity with purposes of its own that the people can be required to serve. For us the word is only a label for the arrangements by which we the people delegate to some among us responsibility for things that concern us in common.
Elliot Richardson
In this culture, God is not the highest entity; mukti or liberation is the highest goal. We are willing to use God as a stepping stone, if needed.
Jaggi Vasudev
I’d spent my whole adult life considering myself an independent entity, my life filled by work and friends and family. Suddenly I had a male partner, someone I woke up with and went to sleep with every night.
Rebecca Traister
Once you admit that the individual is merely a means to serve the ends of the higher entity called society or the nation, most of those features of totalitarianism which horrify us follow of necessity
Friedrich August von Hayek
I’m not going to tell the Palestinians how to arrange themselves. If they want to have their own entity and their own parliament as they do today, that’s fine. If they want to connect to Jordan, which has a very big Palestinian population, and vote in the Jordanian government, that’s fine.
Naftali Bennett
Our brains are so conditioned through education, through religion, to think we are separate entities with separate souls and so on. We are not individuals at all. We are the result of thousands of years of human experience, human endeavor and struggle.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
It is funny how we talk about nature as this separate entity when we are nature, and nature is us.
Jon Hopkins
The market is not a place, a thing, or a collective entity. The market is a process, actuated by the interplay of the actions of the various individuals cooperating under the division of labor.
Ludwig von Mises
Same with the Coen brothers and Warren [Beatty]. And then slowly you get to know each one of them as a person, and that becomes a kind of separate entity, where you just know the human being.
Alden Ehrenreich
I am becoming a solution provider. I’m very happy. I don’t want to make this as a corporate entity. I want to make this as a local sanitary pad movement across the globe.
Arunachalam Muruganantham
When you use any kind of internet-based capability, any kind of electronic capability, to cause damage to a private entity or a foreign nation or a foreign actor, these are potential acts of war.
Edward Snowden
I’m always looking for a kind of new musical entity to sort of move into a motion picture venue
Brian De Palma
The entity that gives life and motion to the human body is finer still and lies infinitely beyond the reach of our finest scientific instruments. When this entity deserts the body, the body is like a ship without a rudder – deserted, motionless, dead.
Thomas A. Edison
WWE is the biggest entity in professional wrestling and if you want to prove yourself to be one of the greatest or one of the best, then that’s the only place you can do it.
Austin Aries
The essence of a software entity is a construct of interlocking concepts. I believe the hard part of building software to be the specification, design, and testing of this conceptual construct, not the labor of representing it and testing the fidelity of the representation.
Fred Brooks
Our findings with reference to organized crime was that organized crime as an entity didn’t participate in the assassination of the president. However, we were unable to preclude the possibility of individual members of organized crime having participated.
Louis Stokes
You can’t market or commercialize feminism as an entity. One has to be careful. I aim to be about powerful women in my clothing.
Zac Posen
Don’t get involved with non-physical beings. This current pastime, this rage, is dangerous. Many of these people who are channeling entities are going to become very sick, physically and mentally
Frederick Lenz
The biggest misconception about Black Lives Matter is that BLM is just one entity; Black Lives Matter is an organization and a network. We are a part of the movement, but we are not the movement.
Alicia Garza
Music always has to do with vibrations for me. I love to record everyone’s heartbeats, in way. None of us beats at the same pace and a song is a magical moment where different entities, for a split second, meet up.
Lou Doillon
There are over 100 entities in the federal government that have something to do with homeland security.
Andrew Card
I put a lot of effort in creating something fictional, yet very personal, because Shook is a defining part of me and my music: the Shook entity is much like the Batman or Superman comics characters. I like the idea that I can have this image that represents a part of me, but isn’t really me, kind of like an alter ego.
If you’re an artist trying to put out your own record on your own label, it’s hard to get a distribution deal because no one wants to sign a deal with one entity. They want to sign distribution deals with labels, who have lots of product, lots of artists.
Aimee Mann
We have sown a seed… Instead of a half-formed Europe, we have a Europe with a legal entity, with a single currency, common justice, a Europe which is about to have its own defence.
Valery Giscard d’Estaing
Entities are beings that are dead. They are the lowest beings on the evolutionary scale because they don’t even know they are dead. They are so stupid. What they seek is life again – they come into the world of the living.
Frederick Lenz
Acting is characterization, the process of two entities merging-the actor and the role.
George C. Scott
Devotion means your limited entity has been dissolved; a much larger possibility has become a living reality for you.
Jaggi Vasudev
We’ve always been the development project that lived in a time pressured setting and always where commercial entities were relying heavily on releases in a certain time frame.
Mitchell Baker
Fate is a manifestation of natural causes. That’s it. It’s not a conscious entity. It has no plan.
Walter Wykes
There was something horrifying in the realization that, in this twenty-first century of what we call ‘civilization,’ we have carved up what we claim is one world into 200 artificially created entities we call ‘nations’ and armed to apprehend or kill anyone who crosses a boundary.
Howard Zinn
The United States should propose partition in Syria. Assad can keep what he controls, and the rebels can form local governments and establish a new entity.
Jamal Khashoggi
All but a very few of us are in debt. We exist as entities who borrow money and spend the rest of our lives making interest payments on a debt tally that never seems to budge. Whatever wealth we have, in labor, property or cash, is suctioned to the top.
Roger Ebert
When I did The Fifth Element [1997], it was like, “Oh my goodness, who is this character?” I loved doing Resident Evil, but Resident Evil is Resident Evil with or without me. It’s an entity of its own. It’s not like Milla made Resident Evil.
Milla Jovovich
Dualistic doctrines that regard mind and body as separate entities do not provide much enlightenment on the nature of the disembodied mental state or on how an immaterial mind and bodily events act on each other
Albert Bandura
We need to put into practice the idea of embracing other cultures. We need to be shaping the kind of world we want to live in instead of waiting for someone else or some other entities to do it for us.
Herbie Hancock
The process by which civilization, as an abstract entity distinct from the societies in which it is embodied, dies or is reborn is a very significant one.
Carroll Quigley
It’s true that every leader needs followers. We can’t all be nonconformists at every moment, but conformity is dangerous – especially for an entity in formation.
Adam Grant
Fate is a shape-shifter. It is the kindest and most generous entity imaginable, laying out more goodness than a person deserves, and then it shrinks and curls and forms into something grotesque. You think something is one thing, but then itВґs another.
Deb Caletti
I’m aware that a film is different than a play, and that a film isn’t going to be the filmed record of the play. It’s its own separate entity, and I’ve come to peace with that.
Tracy Letts
We are the meeting place, an entity that’s trying to connect faith and culture.
William P. Leahy
Cause I can make more money going in and doing my recordings and selling them through my entities that I have, rather than going to a record co. and them release a record and pay me 5 percent of what they make off it.
Mickey Gilley
The true knowledge or science which exists nowhere but in the mind itself, has no other entity at all besides intelligibility; and therefore whatsoever is clearly intelligible, is absolutely true.
Ralph Cudworth
