Did you slip in some cheese? Did it make you hate cheese, which you had previously loved? Why not sue a cheese-maker? Sue him for all the cheese he's got, drive him out of the cheese-making business! Did you burn your face with an iron? Why not sue Prometheus, the god that invented fire? Or an Iron Age chieftain, for having the temerity to popularise the metal.
I think for my parents it was like "A Boy Named Sue," the Johnny Cash song. A guy named Sue tries to track down his father to take it out on his father for naming him Sue. And his father says, "Look, I knew I wasn't going to be around. So I gave you the name so that you would grow up strong enough to take the hits and fight back." So I like to believe that's why my parents gave me this stupid name.
By giving women training to sue a company for a 'hostile environment' if someone tells a dirty joke, we are training women to run to the Government as Substitute Husband (or Father). This gets companies to fear women, but not to respect women. The best preparation we can give women to succeed in the workplace is the preparation to overcome barriers rather than to sue: successful people don't sue, they succeed.
It's good for me to pull away from something that is just done for effect, which was basically Sue White in 'Green Wing.' In that, it was very much: if in trouble, gurn, or fall down. There was no character background to Sue. You didn't know who she was. She didn't have any toehold in any kind of reality.
Today the courts are choked with lawsuits brought by people against the New King. When they sue each other as a result of an automobile accident they in fact sue the King, for both parties are likely insured. ... Steadily the courts have become clearing-houses for the insurance industry.
When Wal-Mart brings water down to the Katrina victims, it's not doing that to be nice; it's doing it to make larger profits and to increase the value of its shares. If its actions are not accomplishing those objectives, the shareholders can sue the executives, and sue them successfully, because it is illegal for them to act on behalf of any other reason than increasing the value of their shares. There is nothing wrong with that. That is the way that they were created and the way we want them to function to increase prosperity in the market.

Ogni uomo ha le sue bestie che se ne stanno in agguato al buio, e le sue maschere per nasconderle. E scatenarle fuori di se nel mondo non e¨ una via per liberarsene. Quindi se¬, vivre² ancora con loro, per tutto il tempo che mi resta da vivere. Ma, se potre² impedirlo, non saranno pie¹ loro a guidarmi la mano.
Reality: "If we can sue the gun manufacturers for human actions, does this mean we can sue the car manufacturers for being hit by a drunk driver?" They (in favour of gun control) must believe in the existence of a substantial number of persons who are willing and able to break serious laws such asthose prohibiting murder, assault, and robbery, yet who are not willing or able to break gun control laws.

Susan... it wasn't a good name, was it? It wasn't a truly bad name, it wasn't like poor Iodine in the fourth form, or Nigella, a name which meant "oops, we wanted a boy." But it was dull. Susan. Sue. Good old Sue. It was a name that made sandwiches, kept its head in difficult circumstances, and could reliably look after other people's children. It was a name used by no queens or goddesses anywhere. And you couldn't do much even with the spelling. You could turn it into Suzi, and it sounded as though you danced on tables for a living. You could put in a Z and a couple of Ns and an E, but it still looked like a name with extensions built on. It was as bad as Sara, a name that cried out for a prosthetic H.
Doesn't he look just like a ring wraith?' she said thoughtfully. 'Are you kidding?' replied Cathy, 'I most certainly won't be carol singing at your door this Christmas if you've got one of those ugly things hanging on it!' 'No, from Lord of the Rings, ' said Sue impatiently. 'I'm sorry, ' snorted Cathy, 'I don't watch pornographic material." 'Have you never read a book?!' Sue snapped. 'It's about a small man who travels through dangerous lands to drop a ring into a volcano, it's a classic.' 'Does sound like a small man, ' she replied, 'can't even face his marriage problems full on.
Sono cattivi esploratori quelli che pensano che non ci sia terra se vedono solo mare, disse Francis Bacon con centinaia d'anni di anticipo. Francis non sapeva quanto le sue parole riflettessero l'indole delle generazioni future, e settecento anni dopo che il suo inchiostro si era mescolato alla carta, l'uomo si era dimenticato di lui. Ma le sue parole erano le¬, sotto gli occhi di tutti.
