The second law of thermodynamics is, without a doubt, one of the most perfect laws in physics. … Not even Maxwell’s laws of electricity or Newton’s law of gravitation are so sacrosanct, for each has measurable corrections coming from quantum effects or general relativity. – Ivan Bazarov.

• Pulitzer Prizes are the preeminent mark of achievement in American journalism. As the prizes for reporting on Vietnam in defiance of official wishes show, they also point to the press’s view of its role in society. That view has changed substantially over the more than eighty years of the Pulitzer Prizes’ existence. Exposing official corruption on a local level had always been part of what journalists see as their function. But today, more than ever before, they are ready to write critically about the policies of the federal government, even in the once sacrosanct areas of foreign and national security affairs.

• The second law of thermodynamics is, without a doubt, one of the most perfect laws in physics. Any reproducible violation of it, however small, would bring the discoverer great riches as well as a trip to Stockholm. The world’s energy problems would be solved at one stroke. It is not possible to find any other law (except perhaps, for super selection rules such as charge conservation) for which a proposed violation would bring more skepticism than this one. Not even Maxwell’s laws of electricity or Newton’s law of gravitation are so sacrosanct, for each has measurable corrections coming from quantum effects or general relativity. The law has caught the attention of poets and philosophers and has been called the greatest scientific achievement of the 19th century.

• It is the sacrosanct duty of the government to follow the law and the pronouncements of the court and not to take recourse to such subterfuges. The government should have reminded itself of the saying of Benjamin Disraeli: ‘I repeat – that all power is a trust – that we are accountable for its exercise – that, from the people and for the people, all springs, and all must exist.

• I wish to express no contempt for individual devout and pious member of that Catholic church. They are welcome to their sacraments, they’re welcome to their reliquaries and to their Blessed Virgin Mary, and they’re welcome to their faith, to the importance they place in it, to the comfort and the joy that they receive from it. All of that is absolutely fine by me. It would be impertinent and wrong of me to express any antagonism towards any individual who wishes to find salvation in whatever form they wish to express it. That to me is sacrosanct as much as any article of faith is sacrosanct to anyone of any church or any faith in the world. It is very important.

• I cherish the Franco- German cooperation as one of the most important developments in post-war Europe. But I will not accept is as being so sacrosanct that the rest of us shall simply adapt to what is decided between Paris and Berlin. But on the other hand, I am quite sure that Germany does not share the French conviction that Europe should be defined as a "counterweight" to the US. And nor do I.

• The feminization of America has made emotions sacrosanct while condemning as cold and unfeeling rigorous concepts such as duty and honor. Propelled by incessant hosannas to woman’s "finer" this and "softer" that, we make emotional decisions instead of ethical ones and then congratulate ourselves for having " heart”.

• There is wisdom and tolerance in that attitude. In a world built on sacrosanct certainties the novel is dead … In any case, it seems to me that all over the world people nowadays prefer to judge rather than to understand, to answer rather than ask, so that the voice of the novel can hardly be heard over the noisy foolishness of human certainties.

• …any full doctrine on evolution, gave it an impulse by suggesting a view contrary to the sacrosanct belief in the immutability of species — that is, to the pious doctrine that every species in the world now exists as it left in the hands of the creator, the naming process by Adam, and the door of Noah’s Ark.

The Cyrus Cylinder is said to be the world’s first charter of human rights. – This characteristic of the Afrcian human rights system was solemnly reaffirmed declaration in 1992 in the Tunis Declaration, which stressed that the principle of the indivisibility of human rights is sacrosanct. -United Nations

• This characteristic of the Afrcian human rights system was solemnly reaffirmed declaration in 1992 in the Tunis Declaration, which stressed that the principle of the indivisibility of human rights is sacrosanct. Civil and political rights cannot be disassociated from economic, social and cultural rights. None of these take precedence over the others.

• I fins it profoundly symbolic that I am appearing before a committee of fifteen men who will report to a legislative body of one hundred men because of a decision handed down by a court comprised of nine men–on an issue that affects millions of women… I have the feeling that if men could get pregnant, we wouldn’t be struggling for this legislation. If men could get pregnant, maternity benefits would be as sacrosanct as the G.I. Bill.

• The enormous privileges given to Brahmins by the Vedas were sacrosanct only as long as they went unchallenged. The challenge rose in the Tamil country like a whirlwind, spearheaded by an iconoclast who questioned the Vedas and gods as well.

• Quotes are sacrosanct. They must never be altered other than to delete a redundant word or clause, and then only if the deletion does not alter the sense of the quote in any way. Selective use of quotes can be unbalanced. Be sure that quotes you use are representative of what the speaker is saying and that you describe body language (a smile or a wink) that may affect the sense of what is being reported. When quoting an individual always give the context or circumstances of the quote.
