The greatest barrier to women's advance in the public world of action has been their acquiescence in the idea that they don't belong out there.
The modern movement of worship is designed to break down barriers between man and God, to remove the veil, as it were, from the fearsome holiness of God, which might cause us to tremble. It is designed to make us feel comfortable.
R. C. Sproul
What does 'work' mean in this 21st, ultra-wired century, with its exploding new industries, low barriers to entry and endless possibilities? Is technology making our lives more flexible - or our days more endless?
The human race has not devised any way of dissolving barriers, getting to know the other chap fast, breaking the ice, that is one-tenth as handy and efficient as letting you and the other chap, or chaps, cease to be totally sober at about the same rate in agreeable surroundings.
The most immutable barrier in nature is between one man's thoughts and another's.
We are breaking down some of the artificial barriers between e-mail and Web browsing. We observed by talking with our users that there is no reason to think of IM as different from an e-mail message.
Music is such a great communicator. It breaks down linguistic barriers, cultural barriers, it basically reaches out. That's when rock n' roll succeeds, and that's what virtuosity is all about.
David Howell Evans
Science knows no politics. Are we in this frenzy of [the Depression] economy, brought about by those who control the wealth of this country, seeking to put a barrier on science and research for the paltry sum of $39,113 out of an appropriation of $100,000,000?
It is now clear that the costly regulatory burdens imposed by this legislation absolutely outweigh its benefits. The PCAOB and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act raise unconstitutional barriers to needed liquidity, discourage entrepreneurship and innovation, and hinder U.S. competitiveness by denying access to needed capital. Further, the high cost of compliance that disproportionately affects smaller public companies is having long-term, exponential negative implications for our economy.
Raising the minimum wage and lowering the barriers to union organization would carry a trade-off - higher unemployment. A better idea is to have the government subsidize low-wage employment. The earned-income tax credit for low-income workers - which has been the object of proposed cuts by both President Clinton and congressional Republicans - has been a positive step in this direction.
One of the defining features of the Anthropocene is that the world is changing in ways that compel species to move, and another is that it’s changing in ways that create barriers—roads, clear-cuts, cities—that prevent them from doing so.
Often, the disparities in the ways men and women are treated are subtle; there are not these clear barriers that you have to break down.
Prejudice is a product of ignorance that hides behind barriers of tradition.
I think making music is removing the barriers from your inside and allowing that to come through your horn to the outside. I think I’m getting better and better at focusing on what it is I’m trying to convey when I’m playing. I think my style, playing-wise, is a little more direct, more identifiable, more communicative, more consistently me and less derivative.
Sadly, this picture [ Joy] does not go from strength to strength. It sinks into a morass of tedious obstacles to this woman's success. Joy the person may be able to surmount all barriers, but the film with her name on it is not so fortunate.
David O. Russell
Most people who live at the border or are familiar with the border know that a Berlin-like wall stretching from San Diego to Brownsville is not necessary. And the costs would be prohibitive. And there are places on the border, such as the Arizona desert or the open terrain around the Big Bend in South Texas, where Mother Nature has created her own barrier that is not easily passable. Or if you do pass through it, you are easily detected.
Bob Marley stood for universal peace and love. He tried to break racial barriers.
Technology will always win. You can delay technology by legal interference, but technology will flow around legal barriers.
