Famous quotes containing the word resolution:

    Breaking his oath and resolution like
    A twist of rotten silk.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    A resolution to avoid an evil is seldom framed till the evil is so far advanced as to make avoidance impossible.
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)

    Compared to football, baseball is almost an Oriental game, minimizing individual stardom, requiring a wide range of aggressive and defensive skills, and filled with long periods of inaction and irresolution. It has no time limitations. Football, on the other hand, has immediate goals, resolution on every single play, and a lot of violence—itself a highlight. It has clearly distinguishable hierarchies: heroes and drones.
    Jerry Mander, U.S. advertising executive, author. Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television, ch. 15, Morrow (1978)
