Quote by Rodney Dangerfield
For two hours...some guy followed me around with a pooper scooper.
This quote suggests that the speaker was being closely monitored or controlled for a particular duration. The mention of someone following them with a "pooper scooper" implies that the speaker's actions or mistakes were continuously being corrected or cleaned up. It could convey a sense of suffocation, annoyance, or a loss of personal freedom, as having someone shadowing their every move might create an uncomfortable or intrusive environment. Overall, this quote highlights a situation of constant scrutiny or supervision, potentially causing frustration or discomfort for the speaker.
Man demands truth and fulfills this demand in moral intercourse with other men; this is the basis of all social life. One anticipates the unpleasant consequences of reciprocal lying. From this there arises the duty of truth. We permit epic poets to lie because we expect no detrimental consequences in this case. Thus the lie is permitted where it is considered something pleasant. Assuming that it does no harm, the lie is beautiful and charming.
In 1883 while I was working at the London Hospital I chanced to turn in to one of D. L. Moody's great tent meetings in the slums of East London. I was amazed to see on the platform with him several men whose athletic prowess was world-famous. That was a credential to me that it was worth stopping to listen to what was going to be said. I still believe athletic success is an invaluable asset to a preacher. Christ, I am sure, wants football, baseball, and track-team men in an age when theological expositions, however deep and learned, when orthodoxy, conventionality, or even correct vestments and ritual, have so little attraction for the young men who will be leaders tomorrow.
