In the spring of 1994 I decided not to seek reelection to the Senate. I had made the decision 12 years earlier Christmas Day of 1982 just after I had been first elected to a full term that I would do the best I could for a limited time.
My share of the work may be limited but the fact that it is work makes it precious.
We are seeing a great awakening. A national movement of We the People brought together by what unites us - a shared love of liberty and an understanding of the unlimited potential of free men and free women.
For any of us in this room today let's start out by admitting we're lucky. We don't live in the world our mothers lived in our grandmothers lived in where career choices for women were so limited.
The sublimity of wisdom is to do those things living which are to be desired when dying.
The extreme limit of wisdom that's what the public calls madness.
Every man is a damn fool for at least five minutes every day wisdom consists in not exceeding the limit.
The whole point of being in the Army is wanting to get killed wanting to test yourself to the limits. Now you have to fly 15 000ft above the war zone to avoid getting hit. I don't think there is any point in having wars if that's how you're going to behave. It's pathetic. All this whining!
Four years of world war at a cost in human suffering which our minds are mercifully too limited to imagine led to the very clear realization that international anarchy must be abandoned if civilization was to survive.
War famine poverty and oppression of the workers will continue while woman makes life cheap. They will cease only when she limits her reproductivity and human life is no longer a thing to be wasted.
The myth of unlimited production brings war in its train as inevitably as clouds announce a storm.
A world with a sudden limit on air travel would be tremendously different from the one we live in now.
Rocket scientists agree that we have about reached the limit of our ability to travel in space using chemical rockets. To achieve anything near the speed of light we will need a new energy source and a new propellant. Nuclear fission is not an option.
Waste is worse than loss. The time is coming when every person who lays claim to ability will keep the question of waste before him constantly. The scope of thrift is limitless.
We've protected thousands of people in Libya we have not seen a single U.S. casualty there's no risks of additional escalation. This operation is limited in time and in scope.
It's only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth - and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up we will then begin to live each day to the fullest as if it was the only one we had.
There's a consistency in my work that pops up independent of the limitations of the technology.
Digital imaging has untied our hands with regards to technical limitations. We no longer have to be arbiters of technology we get to participate in the interpretation of technology into creative content.
The U.S. uses most of its oil for transportation. We can limit U.S. demand for oil by requiring automakers to use the technology that already exists to improve fuel economy - technology that the automakers refuse to bring into the market despite societal demand.
It would appear that we have reached the limits of what it is possible to achieve with computer technology although one should be careful with such statements as they tend to sound pretty silly in 5 years.
The goal for many amputees is no longer to reach a 'natural' level of ability but to exceed it using whatever cutting-edge technology is available. As this new generation sees it our tools are evolving faster than the human body so why obey the limits of mere nature?
With the world's human population now at seven billion and growing and the demand for technology and modern conveniences increasing we can't control all our negative impacts. But we have to find better ways to live within the limits nature and its cycles impose.
My father was a teacher and there were teachers all around his friends they were working for the Government and their behaviour was within strictly limited areas.
The thing I loved the most - and still love the most about teaching - is that you can connect with an individual or a group and see that individual or group exceed their limits.
