85,724.  A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.  (Principle & Privilege)  Dwight D Eisenhower

 

 

85,725.  . Our principles are not a faith.  We do not rely solely upon science and reason, because these are necessary rather than sufficient factors, but we distrust anything that contradicts science or outrages reason.  We may differ on many things, but what we respect is free inquiry, openmindedness, and the pursuit of ideas for their own sake.  Christopher Hitchens, God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything 

 

 

85,726.  I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection.  ’Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.  Thomas Paine

84,776.  Patriotism must be founded on great principals and supported by great virtue.  (Patriotism & Virtue & Principles)  Henry Bolingbroke

 

 

98,741.  Vronsky’s life was particularly happy in that he had a code of principles, which defined with unfailing certitude what he ought and what he ought not to do.  This code of principles covered only a very small circle of contingencies, but then the principles were never doubtful, and Vronsky, as he never went outside that circle, had never had a moment’s hesitation about doing what he ought to do.  These principles laid down as invariable rules: that one must pay a cardsharper, but need not pay a tailor; that one must never tell a lie to a man, but one may to a woman; that one must never cheat anyone, but one may a husband; that one must never pardon an insult, but one may give one and so on.  These principles were possibly not reasonable and not good, but they were of unfailing certainty, and so long as he adhered to them, Vronsky felt that his heart was at peace and he could hold his head up.  Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

116,256.  You can’t live without principles.  No-one can.  Cambridge Spies I II III IV, BBC 2003, Philby 

 

 

119,473.  It’s the principle … Terms on both sides have to be honoured.  (GBH Films & Principle)  Parker 2013 starring Jason Statham & Jennifer Lopez & Michael Chiklis & Wendell Pierce & Clifton Collins & Bobby Cannavale & Patti LuPone & Carlos Carrasco & Micah Hauptman & Emma Booth & Nick Nolte et al, director Taylor Hackford
