Performed

Famous quotes containing the word performed:

    We are responsible for actions performed in response to circumstances for which we are not responsible.
    Allan Massie (b. 1938)

    There is not to be found, in all history, any miracle attested by a sufficient number of men, of such unquestioned good sense, education, and learning, as to secure us against all delusion in themselves ... beyond all suspicion of any design to deceive others ... and at the same time attesting facts, performed in such a public manner, and in so celebrated a part of the world, as to render the detection unavoidable.
    David Hume (1711–1776)

    Fantasies are more than substitutes for unpleasant reality; they are also dress rehearsals, plans. All acts performed in the world begin in the imagination.
    Barbara Grizzuti Harrison (b.1941)
