Rules matter, and to be rules they need to be universal

I believe a nation does not maximize its health care until it starts to ask the hard question: How can we prioritize our expenditures to buy the most health care for the most people? We should not apologize for rationing; we should promote it and advance it.

Having now reached a point where danger might be reasonably apprehended from strolling war parties of Indians, spies were kept in advance and strict diligence observed in the duty of sentinels.
William Henry Ashley
In life, that is how you advance – by pushing the limits.
Riyad Mahrez
All that is human must retrograde if it does not advance.
Edward Gibbon
Assad wanted Israel to capitulate in advance to all his

Assad wanted Israel to capitulate in advance to all his demands. Only then would he agree to enter into substantive negotiations. I couldn’t agree to this.
Ehud Barak
I was always one step behind Marilyn. She made all the right moves, hung out with the right people who could advance her career. I was just the opposite. I was always breaking dates with moguls and running off with guys younger than myself.
Mamie Van Doren
I think recordings have been a terrific advance because now, when you have a piece of music, particularly something that appears to the listener very complicated, there’s really a push to the world to try to figure out what it was that he was hearing.
Leo Ornstein
Intelligence may be taken as a necessary, but not sufficient, cause of moral advance. All morally advanced children are bright, but not all bright children are morally advanced.
Lawrence Kohlberg
Girls Incorporated of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey continues to advance their cause and to strengthen their community by aspiring to open a Girl’s Center for Philadelphia.
Robert Brady
No responsible scholar who thinks a sitting president cannot be indicted also thinks an attorney general can try to truncate a process of oversight – by Congress, for example – by ‘pre-clearing’ the president in advance.
Neal Katyal
As a matter of principle, I always come to a film like a blank slate, I don’t learn my lines in advance. With this approach, I feel clean.
Jeanne Moreau
Labour’s task for government is to build consent for an outward-looking Britain as the best way to advance not just our interests, but also our values at a time of challenge, both at home and abroad.
Douglas Alexander
We had been working. We had a bunch of songs written and it came time to make the record, so we had our lawyer make the call to Elektra and ask for our advance. Then, we got dropped. It was actually exciting.
Gene Ween
I think it’s important that the Republican Party remain the home of conservatives and that the best way to advance conservative principles is to elect Republicans up and down the ballot.
Tom Cotton
In-person town halls generally require a commitment several weeks in advance – a commitment my office is not prepared to make given the full schedule of the Senate and the duties attendant to service there.
Thom Tillis
Our view is that economic isolationism is the wrong way to go. Vibrant, successful growing economies that advance the interests of their citizens engage the global economy. And, we’re committed to engaging the global economy.
John W. Snow
It’s too simplistic to advance the notion of the autonomy of art as a reason for turning away from the public. You can have autonomy and simultaneously have connections with the social and political world.
Thom Mayne
Technology is changing the world around us at a rapid pace, and the capabilities of connected devices will continue to advance at break-neck speed.
Tae Yoo
The best place for puffin watching is Sumburgh Head, at the south end of the Shetland mainland. There used to be a lighthouse there, but it’s now a visitor centre and gallery; they run a webcam, so you can check on the puffins in advance.
Ann Cleeves
If they exert it not for good, they will for evil; if they advance not knowledge, they will perpetuate ignorance.
Frances Wright
I thank you in advance for the great round of applause I’m about to get.
Bo Diddley
I’m such a Type A personality – when it comes to a road trip, I plan my food so far in advance. I roll hard with a cooler. I don’t mess around. I want to avoid ending up eating fast food. I try to stay away from that.
Justin Timberlake
Whether addressing immediate crises or building long-term foundations of peace, the United Nations will remain committed to solutions that advance the global good.
Ban Ki-moon
One can rightly speak of an evolution in plastic art. It is of the greatest importance to note this fact, for it reveals the true way of art – the only path along which we can advance.
Piet Mondrian
Marxists have some way of analyzing the development of affairs which enables them to judge far in advance of scientific thinkers what the trend of social and economic development is to be.
John Desmond Bernal
Long-term economic growth depends mainly on nonmonetary factors such as population growth and workforce participation, the skills and aptitudes of our workforce, the tools at their disposal, and the pace of technological advance. Fiscal and regulatory policies can have important effects on these factors.
Jerome Powell
With every advance, you have to look over your shoulder and know what you’re giving up – look over your shoulder and look at what falls away.
Ellen Ullman
It is the lone worker who makes the first advance in a subject; the details may be worked out by a team, but the prime idea is due to enterprise, thought, and perception of an individual.
Alexander Fleming
Plan your workouts in advance and try and stick to them like appointments you can’t miss.
Joe Wicks
By trying to advance the perfect conservative solution, nobody wins.
Bill Flores
It is critical that parents and other trusted adults initiate conversations with kids about underage drinking well in advance of the first time they are faced with a decision regarding alcohol.
Xavier Becerra
If you’re not putting enough away for emergencies or retirement, making commitments in advance, such as signing up for payroll withholding, can help.
Richard Thaler
Editors have grown timid… a brave advance is almost inevitably followed by quick back-tracking, generally by dilution and debasement of the original intention.
Muriel Rukeyser
As digitalisation and the ageing population trends advance, international mobility and the development of employable skills are crucial to balance demographic gaps and surpluses as well as the deficit of skills across the world.
Alain Dehaze
I don’t like to be rushed. I plan my outfits for the week in advance. I find the appropriate outfit for each occasion, try it on, make sure it is in good condition and have it all ready with shoes, handbag and accessories laid out in my dressing room. Fashion is such a huge part of my career, I have to think ahead.
Jerry Hall
I count myself well educated, for the admirable woman a

I count myself well educated, for the admirable woman at the head of the school which I attended from the age of four and a half till I was thirteen and a half, was a born teacher in advance of her own times.
Catherine Helen Spence
Oh yes, technique has definitely advanced. But you never advance without losing something en passant, and you lose it because you’re paying so much attention to the new thing.
Ninette de Valois
With the advance of feudalism came the growth of iron armor, until, at last, a fighting-man resembled an armadillo.
John Boyle O’Reilly
I am not a person who plans things in advance.
Ana de Armas
In theater, we know a scheduled season months in advance.
Allison Tolman
To maintain their own competitiveness, workers need to attain and stay current on the qualifications needed to advance in a constantly evolving economy.
Elaine Chao
Democracy is not always chapter and verse, written out in advance.
Jane O’Meara Sanders
If you only do things where you know the answer in advance, your company goes away.
Jeff Bezos
Students rarely disappoint teachers who assure them in advance that they are doomed to failure.
Sidney Hook
In any art, you don’t know in advance what you want to say – it’s revealed to you as you say it. That’s the difference between art and illustration.
Aaron Siskind
I think it’s important to earn your fan base and not just try to immediately advance to the top. If you ride to the top quickly, you’re liable to fall as quickly. Take your time. It’s a long journey ahead of you as an artist. There’s nowhere that you’re supposed to be other than right now living inside of your art.
Jason Mraz
If we all worked on the assumption that what is accepted as true is really true, there would be little hope of advance.
Orville Wright
General Reynolds immediately found himself engaged with a force which greatly outnumbered his own, and had scarcely made his dispositions for the action when he fell, mortally wounded, at the head of his advance.
Edward Everett
I can ask for a £25,000 advance, but then you spend a year writing the book, and £25,000 is a loan against sales, and you can easily spend five years earning out. So that’s £25,000 for six years.
Mal Peet
It’s a great disappointment as a leader in the biotech industry that with all the amazing things the drug industry has done in the last couple of decades, we have not made a single major advance, have not not developed a single new chemical entity approved for the treatment for Alzheimer’s disease.
Vivek Ramaswamy
Let that which stood in front go behind, let that which was behind advance to the front, let bigots, fools, unclean persons, offer new propositions, let the old propositions be postponed.
Walt Whitman
The clever, albeit fragile, coalition against terrorism brought together by the U.S. government might be able to advance the transition from classical international law to a cosmopolitan order.
Jurgen Habermas
The X is an amazing car, but we kind of got carried away with the art and technology. Obviously, you want great art. You want great technology. But we did get a little distracted from our mission, which was to advance the cause of electric vehicles. And it probably delayed us a little bit with the Model 3 as well.
Elon Musk
To enjoy enduring success we should travel a little in advance of the world.
John McDonald
The government does not deny it routinely spies to advance American economic advantage, which is part of its broad definition of how it protects American national security.
David E. Sanger
The practical case for manned spacef light gets ever-weaker with each advance in robots and miniaturisation – indeed, as a scientist or practical man, I see little purpose in sending people into space at all. But as a human being, I’m an enthusiast for manned missions.
Martin Rees
I love meeting people and analysing their world. I like having a puzzle to solve. That’s why I do so much work in advance. Even if it doesn’t affect my performance in the end, I just find it so much more interesting if I’ve got as wide as possible an understanding of the material.
Ruth Wilson
Believe it or not, there are members of Congress who actually want to govern and get stuff done. Unfortunately, there are others whose agendas and strategies serve to advance their own interests and expand their donor base.
Jon Runyan
Patents have a place in medical science – for new inventions that advance the state of knowledge.
Adam Cohen
Women have a lot to say about how to advance women’s rights, and governments need to learn from that, listen to the movement and respond.
Charlotte Bunch
I certainly feel my career was a great career because it inspired so many many people, literally hundreds of people to follow a new kind of life and to realize that they could make out and advance their own professional and private and social lives.
Katherine Dunham
Typically, if you buy a studio with a library, their library is pretty well licensed out many years in advance, so you are not really gaining access to the programming in that way.
Ted Sarandos
I had a big group of harpists from Japan in October of 1973 ready to tour the country and the Yom Kippur War took us all by surprise. There were no concerts, no shows – there was no way for them to even leave because the airport was closed. I had to return the money. I had paid them in advance.
Haim Saban
Progress however, of the best kind, is comparatively slow. Great results cannot be achieved at once; and we must be satisfied to advance in life as we walk, step by step.
Samuel Smiles
What better way to attract an audience than to get everyone to shout ‘Outrage!’ at the size of your advance?
Harry Enfield
The very best impromptu speeches are the ones written well in advance.
Ruth Gordon
I eat three home-cooked meals a day, all prepared in ad

I eat three home-cooked meals a day, all prepared in advance. My ethos is to stay away from unsustainable low-calorie diets and aim for something balanced: loads of veg, protein and enjoy the carbs you love. Be realistic. I don’t count sugar or salt or grams of fat: it’s very restrictive and unenjoyable.
Joe Wicks
Progress, of the best kind, is comparatively slow. Great results cannot be achieved at once; and we must be satisfied to advance in life as we walk, step by step.
Samuel Smiles
I cannot penetrate the soul of Arafat. I cannot know in advance whether, behind all the masks, he’s the kind of leader who can reach an agreement or whether he wants to be the Moses of the Palestinians, staying in front of the river and not crossing into the promised land.
Ehud Barak
As a reader, I notice political views regardless of whether or not the book is fiction. What annoys me is when said views do nothing to advance the narrative.
Jen Lancaster
When the Americans advance, we harass and retreat, fire from new positions and then retreat again. If the attacking force is too big, we call for support.
Muqtada al Sadr
Scripture says, ‘He didn’t know the Lord, didn’t respect the Lord, but the Lord used him to advance his kingdom.’ I just believe that at this point in history, Trump will defend religious faith. I talk to him about that.
Jeff Sessions
Mystery writers’ conventions are usually good, and this one has been excellent and extremely well prepared and thought out in advance. A lot of people have given their time and their skill, and a good deal of wit, and Anchorage has made us extraordinarily welcome.
Anne Perry
Don’t use your advance to buy an antique sports car, diamonds by the yard, or a bottle of wine from Thomas Jefferson’s cellar instead of investing in your book.
M. J. Rose
Naming rights are a seductive philanthropic inducement, yet more anonymous operational support may better advance the charitable purpose.
George Kaiser
Genius is the very eye of intellect and the wing of thought; it is always in advance of its time, and is the pioneer for the generation which it precedes.
William Gilmore Simms
Democracy rests upon two pillars: one, the principle that all men are equally entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; and the other, the conviction that such equal opportunity will most advance civilization.
Louis D. Brandeis
I’ve never read a screenplay in advance. You trust the artist.
Beatrice Dalle
Each generation, as it seeks to advance the common good, must ask anew: ‘What are the requirements that governments may reasonably impose upon citizens, and how far do they extend? By appeal to what authority can moral dilemmas be resolved?’
Pope Benedict XVI
There’s no Democratic and Republican seats or gyms or coffee shops at the Supreme Court. Every American should be able to celebrate the fact that we aspire to nine justices who are looking to defend our rights and to defend the Constitution, not to advance policy preferences.
Ben Sasse
The two most important things that can be done to promote democracy in the world is first, to bring moral clarity back to world affairs and second, to link international policies to the advance of democracy around the globe.
Natan Sharansky
Others have said it before me. If you don’t have a seat at the table, you’re probably on the menu. And so it is important that we have women in the United States Senate – strong women, women who are there to help advance an agenda that is important to women.
Elizabeth Warren
In my view of the present aspect of affairs, there is no need of bloodshed and war. There is no necessity for it. I am not in favor of such a course, and I may say in advance, there will be no blood shed unless it be forced upon the government. The government will not use force unless force is used against it.
Abraham Lincoln
If no one ever broke the rules, then we’d never advance.
Simon Sinek
The children are taught more of the meanest state in Europe than of the country they are born and bred in, despite the singularity of its characteristics, the interest of its history, the rapidity of its advance, and the stupendous promise of its future.
Henry Lawson
I actually had the pleasure of meeting David Bowie at his 50th birthday party in New York City. I handed him the cassette of ‘Eight Arms to Hold You,’ which I had just got an advance of that day. He very graciously thanked me and tucked it into his jacket pocket.
Louise Post
I hope to help the Indian government advance their economic reform agenda, which will benefit India’s citizens and the world.
Henry Paulson
The media when it focuses on climate change at all, does so in terms of carbon emissions and how to reduce them. Only rarely do our leaders advance arguments about adapting our environment and our economy to the effects of climate change that are already inevitable.
Barry Gardiner
All around me insisted that my doubts proved only my own ignorance and sinfulness; that they knew by experience they would soon give place to true knowledge, and an advance in religion; and I felt something like indecision.
Maria Monk
Remember that life’s big changes rarely give advance warning.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Naming a transition team varies with the intentions of the candidate; some candidates have been careful to name a transition team as much as a year in advance.
Richard V. Allen
In most cases, in this sport, for guys to advance in this sport, you gotta fight. If you don’t fight, you’re not making it, because it’s too competitive.
John Calipari
With guests who are ‘in the middle of the fight,’ we’re able to hear their point-of-view on the topics, as well as advance our own feelings.
Sean Hannity
Empowering communities by leveraging federal and local investments helps improve the federal-local relationship and advance shared priorities.
Cindy Hyde-Smith
The way you advance a technological society is to try things – to be controversial and contrarian in your thinking in order to get to something that eventually people say, ‘I told you it was a great idea.’
Boyan Slat
I didn’t want the headache of having a publisher reviewing everything I wrote in advance.
Mark Millar
Now, if they’re there to talk about something specifically, and I determine through my own editorial judgment, that another area isn’t germane, or isn’t an important part of it, that’s something else. But we never agree to anything in advance, absolutely not.
Katie Couric
Everyone always asks me how to get the most mileage out

Everyone always asks me how to get the most mileage out of a spray tan. I’m spoiled and I get a fresh one every week; but my best advice for the rest of the girls out there is to wax a day in advance of your spray tan.
Cheryl Burke
We should not just talk about conservative principles, but we should actually advance them.
Todd Young
The substantial uncertainty about the path of asset price movements going forward necessarily reduces the case for altering policy in advance of the move.
Timothy Geithner
At the beginning of the week, I roast a ton of vegetables so I can use them for the next few days. I also plan out meals in advance.
Gail Simmons
I had innumerable analysts who came to me in apology that the world that we were finding was not the world that they had thought existed and that they had estimated. Reality on the ground differed in advance.
David Kay
Use power to help people. For we are given power not to advance our own purposes nor to make a great show in the world, nor a name. There is but one just use of power and it is to serve people.
George W. Bush
No one has done more to advance the rule of law than President Trump.
Scott Pruitt
The first stage in a technology’s advance is that it’ll fall below a critical price. After it falls below a critical price, it will tend, if it’s successful, to rise above a critical mass, a penetration.
Chris Anderson
Only Jesus has prophecies made hundreds of years in advance made literally true. Only He did miracles; only His immediate followers claimed He died and rose from the dead, so in comparison, He comes out superior to other great religious leaders.
Norman Geisler
When I talk to friends and editors about possible projects, especially about projects that might come with a significant cash advance, they usually suggest a biography. Sometimes I’m tempted, but the prospect of spending years researching and writing about someone else’s life offends my vanity.
Michael Dirda
Imagine a civilisation that’s way in advance of us wants to communicate with us, and assist us in our development. The information we provide to them must reflect our highest aspirations and ideals, and not just be some crazy person’s bizarre politics or religion.
Paul Davies
It is easy to underestimate in advance the impact of globalization and automation – I have done it myself.
Moshe Vardi
The plan was criticized by some retired military officers embedded in TV studios. But with every advance by our coalition forces, the wisdom of that plan becomes more apparent.
Dick Cheney
It’s no coincidence that the word ‘holiday’ suggests a holy day, or that the longest book in the Torah concerns the Sabbath. If you wish to advance in any sphere, the best way is to take a retreat.
Pico Iyer
Error is discipline through which we advance.
William Ellery Channing
Knowledge is now accepted as the best we humans can do at the moment, but with the hope that we will turn out to be wrong – and thus to advance our knowledge. What’s happening to networked knowledge seems to make it much closer to the scientific idea of what knowledge is.
David Weinberger
There’s nothing wrong with any group of Americans using our democratic system in order to advance their policy views.
Keith Ellison
If I planned everything out in advance, I’d expire of boredom.
Peter Straub
I would point out that the cultural advance of these people has been suppressed in the past and continues to be suppressed in the present by policies designed to keep them in ignorance.
Hideki Tojo
It’s things like Wikipedia that help us to advance as a society and help us to accelerate our evolution. If you’re a researcher and you need some answer to something, and in today’s world you can find it this quickly, it allows you to develop whatever you are doing much faster.
Kim Dotcom
My ability to bring different characters to life is what has helped me advance in my career, and I would say as far as looks are concerned, well, I suppose that would be the icing on the cake, but acting comes first and foremost.
Lamman Rucker
Growing up, I remember planning for Halloween months in advance. It was, after all, my chance to be creative, artsy, original, and to just have fun!
Natalya Neidhart
A great gulf, however, has been opened between man’s material advance and his social and moral progress, a gulf in which he may one day be lost if it is not closed or narrowed.
Lester B. Pearson
Mass application of technological innovations, which constitutes much of the distinctive substance of modern economic growth, is closely connected with the further progress of science, in its turn the basis for additional advance in technology.
Simon Kuznets
As many of my colleagues know, TikTok, like other Chinese companies is required under Chinese law to share information with the government and its institutions. There are real concerns that this app could also collect information on users in the United States to advance Chinese counter-intelligence efforts.
Abigail Spanberger
‘Endgame’ resists narrative and even thematic explanation. How you play it has to reflect this. If you decide something too much in advance, you forget the element that gives the play life – the audience.
Simon McBurney
While that amendment failed, human cloning continues to advance and the breakthrough in this unethical and morally questionable science is around the corner.
Mike Pence
Do not yield to misfortunes, but advance more boldly to meet them, as your fortune permits you.
Virgil
One knew in advance that life in New York would not be easy, but there were cheap rents in cold-water lofts without heat, and the excitement of being here made up for those hardships. I didn’t move to New York to make a fortune.
David Byrne
They urged me to take up winter quarters at the forks of the Platt, stating that if I attempted to advance further until spring, I would endanger the lives of my whole party.
William Henry Ashley
I always know in advance what I’ve got coming up. Preparation’s important to me – it helps my performance.
Michael Clarke
2/3 of our management associates come from our hourly r

2/3 of our management associates come from our hourly ranks. We put in place academies to help people with education. We’ve put a dollar a day college program in to help people get college hours if they want to advance their degrees.
Doug McMillon
Some asteroids have us in their sights. Be nice to sort of go near them and find out what they’re made of, possibly tag their ears so they’re always broadcasting to us their location. In case one of their trajectories head straight for us, we’ll know well in advance to do something about it.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
To my mind the boy who gives least promise is one in whom the critical faculty develops in advance of the imagination.
Quintilian
After taking a two-year sabbatical to spend time with my wife and travel the world, I’m excited to join the Twitter Board and help the company advance its mission.
Patrick Pichette
At the European table, we are systematically the most determined to advance a strategy of increased cooperation.
Charles Michel
Social democracy… is only the advance guard of the proletariat, a small piece of the total working masses; blood from their blood, and flesh from their flesh.
Rosa Luxemburg
At XL we are continually focused on the rate of change, the increasingly interconnected world and the need to help our clients advance wherever their business occurs.
Mike McGavick
The southward advance of native African farmers with Central African crops halted in Natal, beyond which Central African crops couldn’t grow – with enormous consequences for the recent history of South Africa.
Jared Diamond
Smell is a long-distance sense, a way of stretching time and finding out in advance what lies ahead.
Lyall Watson
I can love a person in this life only insofar as he tries to advance in the praise and service of God our Lord; for the man who loves anything for itself and not for the sake of God, does not love God with his whole heart.
Saint Ignatius
Since we can’t know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try to teach it in advance. Instead, we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned.
John Holt
It is almost possible to predict one or two days in advance, within a rather broad range of probability, what the weather is going to be; it is even thought that it will not be impossible to publish daily forecasts, which would be very useful to soci.
Antoine Lavoisier
To receive applause for works which do not demand all our powers hinders our advance towards a perfecting of our spirit. It usually means that thereafter we stand still.
Georg C. Lichtenberg
We were now, as I before mentioned, upon this St. Joseph’s trail. It was evident, by the traces, that large parties were a few days in advance of us; and as we too supposed them to be Mormons, we had some apprehension of interruption.
Francis Parkman
The three main sources of scepticism are first, that not every people desires freedom; second, that democracy in certain parts of the world would be dangerous; and third, that there is little the world’s democracies can do to advance freedom outside their countries.
Natan Sharansky
Societies advance through innovation every bit as much as economies do.
Geoff Mulgan
If you have a president who is really trusted, then you can move and advance those policies that actually make the American dream available to everyone.
Joe Sestak
When men hold the greater majority of all professional positions of power, it is impossible for a woman to advance her career without the support of men.
Carol Roth
If our country is to advance, let it be upon the legs of lessons well-learned.
Jared Polis
There are people who are trying to advance themselves by wrapping themselves in Reagan.
Eugene Jarecki
We plan tours months in advance, and you leave a few days off here and there where you feel you’ll be tired after some shows, but if other opportunities keep coming in, those days get swallowed very quickly, and it’s an impossibility to get this stuff right.
Passenger
The mind cannot be securely anchored. If we do not advance, we go backward. If we do not grow, we decay. If we do not develop, we shrink and shrivel.
Robert Green Ingersoll
A technological advance of a major sort almost always is overestimated in the short run for its consequences – and underestimated in the long run.
Francis Collins
If there is technological advance without social advance, there is, almost automatically, an increase in human misery.
Michael Harrington
As a candidate for Director-General of the WHO, I believe there is a key role WHO needs to play to improve and advance mental health. It can help advocate for efficient resources and services – and efforts to reduce stigma – to be in place at local, national, and global levels.
Tedros Adhanom
Our task will be to advance Kenya’s interests and ensure they are well served.
Mwai Kibaki
In writing a series of stories about the same characters, plan the whole series in advance in some detail, to avoid contradictions and inconsistencies.
L. Sprague de Camp
For the division of labor demands from the individual an ever more one-sided accomplishment, and the greatest advance in a one-sided pursuit only too frequently means dearth to the personality of the individual.
Georg Simmel
There are really good reasons to leave the workforce or work less or take a different job when you want to be with your children. I just want women – and men – to make that choice once they have the child. Not years in advance, because… they don’t get the right opportunities. They give up before they even start.
Sheryl Sandberg
Science is, rightly, searching for drugs to arrest ageing or to slow the advance of dementia. But the evidence suggests that many of the most powerful factors determining how you age come from what you do, and what you do with others: whether you work, whether you play music, whether you have regular visitors.
Geoff Mulgan
Because the better an organization is at fulfilling its purpose, the more it attracts people who see the organization as an opportunity to advance themselves.
Robert Shea
What it values most of all is the sum total of events a

What it values most of all is the sum total of events and the advance of civilization, which carries individuals along with it; but, indifferent to details, it cares less to have them real than noble or, rather, grand and complete.
Alfred de Vigny
We can score political points. We can try to advance some important initiatives. But at some point, it takes sober-minded, responsible conservative leaders to identify when you’ve pushed as far as you can and to have the courage to go back and face the electorate and explain to them why you voted the way you did.
Todd Young
I don’t make an effort to advance my own profile, everything revolves around the team.
Eoin Morgan
The Enterprise In Space program is an exciting opportunity to simultaneously advance cutting edge technologies while getting students from around the world engaged in STEAM and space education.
Bruce Pittman
As Attorney General, my most important responsibility is keeping New Yorkers safe by enforcing the laws that protect our people from harm. But another fundamental part of my job is to seek to advance the basic American principle of equal justice under law.
Eric Schneiderman
The environmental benefits of hydrogen are also outstanding. When used as an energy source, hydrogen produces no emissions besides water. Zero polluting emissions, an amazing advance over the current sources of energy that we use.
Dan Lipinski
When I was asked by Pacific Comics for an original creator-owned series, my first choice of those several characters was Ms. Mystic. Since I always try to advance the work of other younger creators, I asked the young Mike Nasser if he’d like to join me in this project. He said yes. Mike created nothing!
Neal Adams
The moon and other celestial bodies should be free for exploration and use by all countries. No country should be permitted to advance a claim of sovereignty.
Lyndon B. Johnson
Reacting in anger or annoyance will not advance one’s ability to persuade.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
History was invented as a tool, an engineered road down which human society could advance.
Bettany Hughes
The Chinese public is deeply nationalist, which matters to China’s unelected political leadership as much as U.S. nationalism does to American politicians. As China becomes the world’s largest economy, there is meaningful public pressure for its power status to advance in parallel. Any alternative would be humiliating.
Noah Feldman
However novel it may appear, I shall venture the assertion, that, until women assume the place in society which good sense and good feeling alike assign to them, human improvement must advance but feebly.
Frances Wright
It’s very important to understand that we never do the same thing twice; each of our projects is unique. We’ll never do another ‘Gates.’ Each project is a unique image. We do not know in advance how the work will look. I do preparatory drawings, but they are only projections of our vision.
Christo
Those of us focused on issues related to social justice and equality are grateful for the significant steps President Obama has made to advance women’s equality and status all over the world.
Christy Turlington
To the extent that you can find ways where you’re making predictions, there’s no substitute for testing yourself on real-world situations that you don’t know the answer to in advance.
Nate Silver
Our first manager really pushed that we not sell our publishing rights, which is one of the earliest things an artist will do: They’ll sell in order to get a cash advance.
Isaac Hanson
One of the reasons that I’m still in the military – or I stayed in the military – is because I think the military has been a place where certainly people could improve, advance, and were treated fairly.
Michael Mullen
American workers have faced serious difficulties in the labor market since the first oil shock in 1973. Since that time, the pace of productivity advance has slowed for reasons which are still not understood, lowering the rate at which living standards have advanced.
Janet Yellen
In some countries that are darlings of the West, like Egypt, everyone knows the result of national elections years in advance: The man in power always wins. In others, like Saudi Arabia, the very idea of an election is unthinkable.
Stephen Kinzer
For me, everything is still possible and I am as determined as ever. I believe first that the project of a people does not die. It is the project of freedom for a people, it is a project of sovereignty. And since the nation exists, it has the right to its own state. I will work to advance it in that direction.
Pauline Marois

Kevin Lynch

Frederick Jackson Turner
One of the weird things about being a designer is guess

One of the weird things about being a designer is guessing what the world will want about a year in advance of when they will want it. It becomes almost a psychological test in a way – how do I feel now and how do I want to feel then.
Michael Bastian
Close scrutiny will show that most ‘crisis situations’ are opportunities to either advance, or stay where you are.
Maxwell Maltz
A cash advance on a credit card is one of the worst types of borrowing because the interest rate is typically 21 percent or more.
Suze Orman
Every great advance in science has issued from a new audacity of imagination.
John Dewey

Ordination confers authority, but righteousness is required to act with power as we strive to lift souls, to teach and testify, to bless and counsel, and to advance the work of salvation.
David A. Bednar

Sinn Fein is committed to promoting and enhancing reconciliation, and in recent years, I and other members of my party have taken a number of significant initiatives aimed to advance this process.
Martin McGuinness
Maybe this is pathetic, but I still dread producing a book that doesn’t earn back its advance. I hate obligations that are financially foggy.
Helen Garner
There is no finer sensations in life that which comes with victory over one’s self. Go forward to a goal of inward achievement, brushing aside all your old internal enemies as you advance.

An idyllic period of my existence was when I had a den attached to my home… a writing den, and no one had access to that unless they had their own special visa, applied for weeks in advance.

You don’t have any kind of control ultimately. Things are just going to happen as they will. And I think your best option sometimes is just to react rather than try to plan everything out in advance.
Jason Isbell
Remember that a civilized nation cannot just have one party; if there were only one party, this would merely be a dictatorship. Politics could not advance.

Jean Kennedy Smith
If you look at a great city, one of its amazing features is that you’re going to find all sorts of things that you might not specifically have chosen in advance. And they will change your day. Maybe your month. Maybe your whole life.
Cass Sunstein
The first book advance I got was paid out in thirds. And over time, as I’ve had different deals, the advances get chopped up into ever-smaller parcels.
