Chauncey Wright
There are many causes of violent deaths in America – murders and traffic accidents – that we do not approach with the same ‘no price too steep, no task too difficult’ approach that we take toward al Qaeda.

No one knows what the nongenetic causes of individuality are. Perhaps people are shaped by modifications of genes that take place after conception, or by haphazard fluctuations in the chemical soup in the womb or the wiring up of the brain or the expression of the genes themselves.
Understanding reduces the greatest to simplicity, and lack of its causes the least to take on the magnitude.
Raymond Holliwell

Nothing in the world causes more problems than concepts of ethnic virtue. It’s irrelevant.
The study of history reveals that human progress has not been continuous and regular, but intermittent and spasmodic, often depending upon apparently accidental causes. It is difficult to get a cross-section view of society at any given stage.
The causes of obesity are varied and complex, but the lack of daily physical activity is an important factor.
Fighting causes you to face life head on, because you could end up seriously getting hurt, and you could hurt somebody else. It causes both people to face the reality that we are fragile beings, but it doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy ourselves in the process and punch each other in the face and have a good time.
I honestly think that we're getting away from the basic

I honestly think that we’re getting away from the basic structure of wrestling and it causes wrestlerscareers to come up short because of injuries.
If we are to be happy, we must first react against our tendency to follow the line of least resistance, a tendency that causes us either to remain as we are, or to look primarily to activities external to ourselves for what will provide new impetus to our lives.
I love anything that really pushes the envelope as far as where it takes your mind. When it’s well written and brings you into a world that possibly could be, I think that’s the most entertaining for me – to see something that could actually take place and causes you to think.
A knowledge of the forces that rule society, of the causes that have produced its upheavals, and of society’s resources for promoting healthy progress has become of vital concern to our civilization.
Wilhelm Dilthey
The death tax is one of the leading causes of the dissolution of small businesses.
Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.
A revival does two things. First, it returns the Church from her backsliding and second, it causes the conversion of men and women; and it always includes the conviction of sin on the part of the Church. What a spell the devil seems to cast over the Church today!
Fear causes individuals to restrain their spending and firms to withhold investments; as a result, the economy weakens, confirming their fear and leading them to restrain spending further. The downturn deepens, and a vicious circle of despair takes hold.

It may be that that we can sing what we often cannot say, whether it be from shyness, fear, lack of the right words or the passion or dramatic gift to express them. More souls have rallied to more causes by the strains of music than by straining rhetoric.
Richard Rodgers
There are still many causes worth sacrificing for, so much history yet to be made.
Intellectuals are in a position to expose the lies of governments, to analyze actions according to their causes and motives and often hidden intentions.
Most of us in the baby-boom generation were raised by full-time mothers. Even as recently as 14 years ago, 6 out of 10 mothers with babies were staying at home. Today that is totally reversed. Does that mean we love our children less than our mothers loved us? No, but it certainly causes a lot of guilt trips.
It doesn’t matter if I’ve been wronged – I still have a responsibility to use my influence in a way that never causes harm.
Furloughing a bunch of air traffic controllers has a pretty easy-to-predict effect on air travel: It causes delays.

Mohammed Hussein Al Amoudi
I have a fear of tubes and tunnels. Going through any tunnel causes me great anxiety.
It’s time to re-think charity. It’s time to give charity the big-league freedoms we really give to business. The fight for these freedoms must be our new cause, because without them, all of our causes are ultimately lost.

Maryanne Trump Barry

Nancy Lublin
The vote, cast in a free atmosphere and with all inclinations and parties at present, was after all a vote to the Islamic Republic, to national independence, to the Constitution and to the Islamic causes.
Ali Khamenei
There are a lot of good causes out there, but they can’t possibly all be served by government.
Haven’t we all been taken aback when an illness suddenly causes the voice to crack and sometimes dry up completely?
A significant number of people over the age of 65 would like to downsize into more suitable accommodation, yet they are unable to do so. This causes a bottleneck in the housing market that ripples down to first-time buyers.
How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it.
There are two main organizations that rate charities. They look at their finances and decide whether they are giving enough to the causes they claim to focus on. Something like 80 or 90% of their money actually goes to a charitable purpose.
I have a golden leg that I am completely proud of, but

I have a golden leg that I am completely proud of, but my left foot that has an open ulcer, no heel, and no toes. Over the years, my body has produced a lot of calcium, which causes my bones to grow on that foot.

We have been embarked on what I would call a proactive strategy that looks at our gun violence as a public health crisis, which is what it is. That means we look at the root causes of the violence.

I have been stubborn and getting into trouble since I was 2, but I learned how to redirect that into good causes.
People, whatever their profession is, have a right to fight for the right causes.
We can be thankful President Barack Obama is taking aim at one of the prime causes of climate change and extreme weather: air pollution. The EPA’s carbon pollution standards are the most significant step forward our country has ever taken to protect our health by addressing climate change.
Your intentions are your nonphysical causes that set energy into motion. They create a multitude of effects and, therefore, determine the experiences of your life. This is one of the most important things that you can know. It is also something that you can see for yourself is true.
Some calamities – the 1929 stock market crash, Pearl Harbor, 9/11 – have come like summer lightning, as bolts from the blue. The looming crisis of America’s Ponzi entitlement structure is different. Driven by the demographics of an aging population, its causes, timing and scope are known.

As a mother and someone who has lost so many family members to cancer, it is important to me to bring awareness to such important causes.

One of the causes of the Arab Spring was high unemployment.
My goal is to change perception about giving money for charity. A lot of people still think that this is only for the rich. I used to think like this, but this isn’t true. Begin by donating the smallest amount you can afford. You’ll soon realize how easy it is to support worthy causes.
Grief causes suffering and disease.
Daniel D. Palmer
After I had my son, Max, I knew I wanted to get involved in causes that help children.
We’ve got to stop focusing solely on the symptoms of crime, and start caring about the causes as well.
Carrie P. Meek
I still don’t understand why we need a gigantic airport sprawled across South East England. What does it gain us, compared with the misery of noise, pollution and congestion it causes in our cramped country? Would it really be so bad if we had to take a train to Paris or Amsterdam to fly to the U.S.A.?
All causes are essentially mental, and whosoever comes into daily contact with a high order of thinking must take on some of it.
Charles Fillmore
Some of the immediate causes of Jack Abramoff’s troubles were some Indian elections that went bad for him.
Joshua Micah Marshall

I am pretty heavy into causes. I’m an active Democrat, I boycott grapes, and I work for prison reform.
I don’t want to lose the feeling I have for players, but the pro system almost causes you to be cold and insensitive, when you have to release players yearly.
The great secret that all old people share is that you really haven’t changed in seventy or eighty years. Your body changes, but you don’t change at all. And that, of course, causes great confusion.
Fear seems to have many causes. Fear of loss, fear of failure, fear of being hurt, and so on, but ultimately all fear is the ego‘s fear of death, of annihilation. To the ego, death is always just around the corner. In this mind-identified state, fear of death affects every aspect of your life.
One of the top causes of startup death – right after cofounder problems – is building something no one wants.
There seem to be many causes of depression. One cause is profound loss, grief. Economic hardship we know is linked to depression. We don’t have a full picture.
Irving Kirsch
The truth is sometimes a hard pill to swallow. It somet

The truth is sometimes a hard pill to swallow. It sometimes causes us difficulties at home and abroad. It is sometimes used by our enemies in attempts to hurt us. But the American people are entitled to it, nonetheless.
A rebirth out of spiritual adversity causes us to become new creatures.
Basically, I suffer from a genetic condition that causes my corneas to tear all the time. If it’s happened to you even once, you know how agonizing it can be – for me, it was happening on a daily basis.
I’m not telling people where to give money, but if there is to be a spotlight shed on me, then I’d like to direct that spotlight onto causes I think are worthy or onto interesting, progressive figures.
I have on many occasions spoken my mind from stage. I have offered organizations table space by the merch booth. I have donated a dollar-a-ticket, or the entire guarantee, to different causes. I have registered voters. I have played on behalf of political candidates.
I had worked so hard on three projects 1997 that it knocked the gas out of me. It was a mystery to the medical profession, but you can test positive for Epstein-Barr and not have it. When you get a post-viral syndrome, for some people it causes chronic fatigue or hearing loss. For me it became light sensitivity.
Now it is established in the sciences that no knowledge is acquired save through the study of its causes and beginnings, if it has had causes and beginnings; nor completed except by knowledge of its accidents and accompanying essentials.
As in geology, so in social institutions, we may discover the causes of all past changes in the present invariable order of society.
God is no respecter of persons or causes.
Clementa C. Pinckney
The truth is, what Americans enjoy about football is much of what makes the sport dangerous. However, I believe there must be a way to find the art of success and vitality in football, without the driving the level of impact that causes serious risk of head trauma, paralysis and other life-changing injuries.
There is a majority of scientists that say that global carbon emissions by humans causes some changes in the climate.
I’m always amazed that people are shocked when their despicable action causes an equally despicable reaction.
Toxicity causes nutritional deprivation – and your body then craves more and more food, trying to get what it needs.
This hunger for profits causes great misery for the people.
Walter Ulbricht
It is, of course, quite natural that a biologist whose attention had been aroused by noticing in his own case the phenomena of precocious old age should turn to study the causes of it.
Elie Metchnikoff
I will give away at least half my wealth during my lifetime and after my death. In the meantime, I’ll continue to grow my wealth as much as possible so that the amount I bequeath to charities and worthy causes can be as substantial as possible.
Illness, especially chronic illness, can be very isolating. Not only does it limit how and when you can socialise, it causes you to feel unattractive.
I’m not very active politically. The causes I work on offer immediate, practical, accessible help, and politics has never meant that to me.
The death tax causes one-third of all family-owned small businesses to liquidate after the death of the owner. It is also an unfair tax because the assets have already been taxed once at their income level.
Ric Keller
I’ve been exploring different options for when I’m done skiing. I have the Turtle Ridge Foundation, which is helping a bunch of worthy causes around the Northeast. I’ve also started SkiSpace, which is an online social network that basically deals with all things based around any snow sport.
There is nothing to fear except the persistent refusal to find out the truth, the persistent refusal to analyze the causes of happenings.

It is common knowledge that smoking is considered one of the nation‘s leading causes of preventable death, but it’s less widely known that cigarettes are also the leading cause of fatal fires.
Science will explain how but not why. It talks about what is, not what ought to be. Science is descriptive, not prescriptive; it can tell us about causes but it cannot tell us about purposes. Indeed, science disavows purposes.
Whatever requires an undue amount of thought or trouble or involves a large expenditure of effort and causes our whole life to revolve, as it were, around solicitude for the flesh must be avoided by Christians.
I think the best president – because he changed the whole mood of the country, the whole economy of the country, and stood up to Communism… that was continuing its causes around the world, and backed them off and caused them to collapse – and that was Ronald Reagan.
Pat Boone
Effective altruism is a philosophy and social movement which tries to work out the most effective ways to improve the world. Effective altruists – conform to old-school utilitarian principles – consider all causes and actions, and then act in the way that they believe brings about the greatest positive impact.
Mirroring is simply repeating what someone just said. It creates more reception from the other side, it focuses attention, and it gives them an opportunity to dial in more with you and you to dial in more with them. It causes an almost completely unconscious response for the person to want to go on.
There is one thing higher than Royalty: and that is rel

There is one thing higher than Royalty: and that is religion, which causes us to leave the world, and seek God.

Mysteries once thought to be supernatural or paranormal happenings – such as astronomical or meteorological events – are incorporated into science once their causes are understood.
Only 20 percent of our longevity is genetically determined. The rest is what we do, how we live our lives and increasingly the molecules that we take. It’s not the loss of our DNA that causes aging, it’s the problems in reading the information, the epigenetic noise.
We all have different causes that touch us emotionally and I believe anybody should fight for a cause they believe in. I’m a Muslim, I’m African, so certain causes will affect me more than they do other people.
Wrong believing puts people in a prison. Even though there are no physical shackles, wrong believing causes its inmates to behave as though they were incarcerated in a maximum-security penitentiary.
Therefore in medicine we ought to know the causes of sickness and health.
In my role as a spokesperson for Amnesty International U.S.A. and as a supporter of various charitable causes including Unlock Iran, a campaign to release prisoners of conscience in Iran, I have never been faced with the threat of intimidation or arrest.

Bob Kerrey

I write cheap recipes for struggling families and single people, and have donated 800 copies of my newest cookery book to food banks and other good causes.
If we want to build communities that are safe, we have to address the root causes of violence.
The only lesson to extract from any civil war is that it’s pointless and futile and ugly, and that there is nothing glamorous or heroic about it. There are heroes, but the causes are never heroic.
I really want to move away from the old model in which you have to rely on people giving $10 after a humanitarian crisis to a newer model where people give money but also their time and their skills, whatever they have, to the causes that are personally meaningful to them well before the crisis moment presents itself.
I think most people want to be remembered with the causes they feel worthwhile and helped promote.

Words are potent weapons for all causes, good or bad.
Manly Hall
Evil events from evil causes spring.
Some people look like they’re lost causes, but they’re not. Even if they’re in a messed up situation, the one little thing you do to help can go a long way.
I believe that people of substantial wealth potentially create problems for future generations unless they themselves accept responsibility to use their wealth during their lifetime to help worthwhile causes.
I don’t pretend; I’m honest. Sometimes that causes a problem; I always say what I think.
It ain’t ignorance that causes all the trouble in this world. It’s the things people know that ain’t so.
Edwin Armstrong
I totally agree with equal rights and women’s causes, and most of my songs are woman-power, but I don’t want to be labelled at 20 years old.
All of my causes, including the most radical, are motiv

All of my causes, including the most radical, are motivated by the defense of animals.
Guys are much happier when someone puts a limit on their behavior and causes them to make a real connection with another person.
The Democrats have prevailed because, at heart, we have embodied a great idea, which is that an elected government can be the instrument of the common purpose of a free people; that government can embrace great causes and do great things.
I support a lot of causes, but I do it privately. My profession shouldn’t be a platform.
I think what ruins relationships and causes most fights is insecurity.
I am an adamant feminist. It never occurred to me to take my husband’s name when we married. I am a supporter of abortion rights, of equal pay for equal work, of the rights of women prisoners, of all the time-honored feminist causes, and then some.
It is almost always the cover-up rather than the event that causes trouble.
Howard Baker
Regardless of its causes, thoughtlessly blaming the present is a weakness which, even if it is never outlawed, ought to be resisted. Though commonly flaunted as a sign of sophistication, it can be an opportunity for one-upmanship and an excuse for misanthropy, especially against the young.
Especially when you deal with comedy, you have got to be really honest because it’s the honesty and the spontaneity that causes people to chuckle, that catches people.
Austin Peck
