„What we were striving for was a kind of modified form of communism.“

Reported in Paul F. Boller, Jr., and John George, They Never Said It: A Book of Fake Quotes, Misquotes, & Misleading Attributions (1989), p. 52, indicating that President Ronald Reagan had attributed this quote to Ickes in December 1981.

„Alternate form: I would think that if you understood what communism was, you would hope and pray on your knees that we would someday be communists. I am a socialist. I think that we should strive toward a socialist society - all the way to communism.“

—  Jane Fonda American actress and activist 1937

„Thus community in embryonic structure reveals community of descent, however much the structure of the adult may have been modified.“

—  Charles Lyell British lawyer and geologist 1797 - 1875

Quelle: The Geological Evidences of the Antiquity of Man (1863), Ch.21, p. 415
Kontext: We may understand why the species of the same genus, or genera of the same family, resemble each other more nearly in their embryonic than in their more fully developed state, or how it is that in the eyes of most naturalists the structure of the embryo is even more important in classification than that of the adult, 'for the embryo is the animal in its less modified state, and in so far it reveals the structure of its progenitor. In two groups of animals, however much they may at present differ from each other in structure and habits, if they pass through the same or similar embryonic stages, we may feel assured that they have both descended from the same or nearly similar parents, and are therefore in that degree closely related. Thus community in embryonic structure reveals community of descent, however much the structure of the adult may have been modified.

„Pāṇini had before him a list of irregularly formed words, which survives, in a somewhat modified form, as the Uṇādi Sūtra.“

—  Pāṇini ancient Sanskrit grammarian

There are also two appendixes to which Pāṇini refers: one is the Dhātupāṭha, "List of Verbal Roots," containing some 2000 roots, of which only about 800 have been found in Sanskrit literature, and from which about fifty Vedic verbs are omitted; the second is the Gaṇapāṭha, or "List of Word-Groups," to which certain rules apply. These gaṇas were metrically arranged in the Gaṇaratna-mahodadhi, composed by Vardhamāna in 1140 A.D.

„Art today is a new kind of instrument, an instrument for modifying consciousness and organizing new modes of sensibility.“

—  Susan Sontag American writer and filmmaker, professor, and activist 1933 - 2004

"One culture and the new sensibility", p. 296
Against Interpretation and Other Essays (1966)
Kontext: Art today is a new kind of instrument, an instrument for modifying consciousness and organizing new modes of sensibility. And the means for practicing art have been radically extended.... Painters no longer feel themselves confined to canvas and paint, but employ hair, photographs, wax, sand, bicycle tires, their own toothbrushes and socks. Musicians have reached beyond the sounds of the traditional instruments to use tampered instruments and (usually on tape) synthetic sounds and industrial noises.
