Psychology is the science of the act of experiencing and deals with the whole system of such acts as they make up mental life.
Curiosity begins as an act of tearing to pieces or analysis.
Desire then is the invasion of the whole self by the wish, which, as it invades, sets going more and more of the psychical processes; but at the same time, so long as it remains desire, does not succeed in getting possession of the self.
For psychological purposes, the most important differences in conation are those in virtue of which the object is revealed as sensed or perceived or imaged or remembered or thought.
In the perception of a tree, we can distinguish the act of experiencing or perceiving, from the thing experienced, or smelled.
It is more difficult to designate this form of conation on its practical side by a satisfactory name.
But unfortunately, Locke treated ideas of reflection as if they were another class of objects of contemplation besides ideas of sensation.
Mental life is indeed practical through and through. It begins in practice and it ends in practice.
Hence, in desiring, the more the enjoyment is delayed, the fancier begins to weave about the object images of future fruition, and clothe the desired object with properties calculated to inflame the impulse.
Such being the nature of mental life, the business of psychology is primarily to describe in detail the various forms which attention or conation assumes upon the different levels of that life.
The interval between a cold expectation and a warm desire may be filled by expectations of varying degrees of warmth or by desires of varying degrees of coldness.
The mental act of sensation which issues reflex movement is so simple as to defy analysis.
The perceptive act is a reaction of the mind upon the object of which it is the perception.
The sensory acts are accordingly distinguished by their objects.
The thing of which the act of perception is the perception is experienced as something not mental.
Thus the same object may supply a practical perception to one person and a speculative one to another, or the same person may perceive it partly practically and partly speculatively.
We cannot, therefore, say that mental acts contain a cognitive as well as a conative element.
What is the meaning of the togetherness of the perceiving mind, in that peculiar modification of perceiving which makes it perceive not a star but a tree, and the tree itself, is a problem for philosophy?
When we come to images or memories or thoughts, speculation, while always closely related to practice, is more explicit, and it is not immediately obvious that such processes can be described in any sense as practical.
You can mark in desire the rising of the tide, as the appetite more and more invades the personality, appealing, as it does, not merely to the sensory side of the self, but its ideal components as well.
It may be added, to prevent misunderstanding, that when I speak of contemplated objects in this last phrase as objects of contemplation, the act of contemplation itself is of course an enjoyment.
Both expectations and memories are more than mere images founded on previous experience.
An object is not first imagined or thought about and then expected or willed but is being actively expected it is imagined as the future, and in being willed it is thought.
An expectation is a future object, recognized as belonging to me.
It is convenient to distinguish the two kinds of experience which have thus been described, the experiencing and the experienced, by technical words.
But though cognition is not an element of mental action, nor even in any real sense of the word an aspect of it, the distinction of cognition and conation has if properly defined a definite value.

We are safer, the region is safer, and the world is safer without Saddam.
With nearly 20 days until Iraq emerges as a free sovereign state for the first time in more than three decades, terrorists have increasingly targeted our country’s infrastructure.
We see an extensive program of dismantling state institutions… These are ingredients for catastrophe.
We are succeeding in Iraq. It’s a tough struggle with setbacks, but we are succeeding.
It is our people who are sitting in the dark because of these cowardly and treacherous attacks, not our occupiers.
We can and must turn this around. If you’re going to kill someone just pull the trigger.
We are pushing ahead as fast as we can for all audiences, whether the business user, the child, or the digital music enthusiast.
We’re going to spend a lot on marketing because we think the product sells itself.
There is no neat distinction between operating system software and the software that runs on top of it.
If you’re going to kill someone there isn’t much reason to get all worked up about it and angry – you just pull the trigger. Angry discussions beforehand are a waste of time. We need to smile at Novell while we pull the trigger.
Well, developers do want to touch a lot of customers. We have to make our platform very popular for them to do that. If we make their jobs easier, then they’ll be more likely to stay on the Windows platform.
When you say a situation or a person is hopeless, you are slamming the door in the face of God.
Sometimes life has a way of putting us on our backs to force us to look up.
Why should you be content with so little? Why shouldn’t you reach out for something big?
The hardest people to reach with the love of God are not bad people. They know they are bad. They have no defense. The hardest ones to win for God are the self-righteous people.
The Christian has not gone all the way with Christ. None of us has. The Christian has found the right road.
Remember that you are needed. There is at least one important work to be done that will not be done unless you do it.
If the human race wants to go to hell in a basket, technology can help it get there by jet.
You can make more friends in a month by being interested in them than in ten years by trying to get them interested in you.
The automobile is technologically more sophisticated than the bundling board, but the human motives in their uses are sometimes the same.
Michael Ralph brilliantly plays the street prophet, a West Indian who foreshadows the Harlem riot.
Everything has to be well thought out – what do you need, when can you do with less coverage.
I design my shots. I walk the rehearsal as the camera and say ‘this is where I want to be… I want this look.
I didn’t need the insurance. I do it again if my DP tells me it didn’t look good in the camera or if the actors didn’t hit their marks. But if everything was working why do it again?
I got my dailies every day, although I couldn’t always look at them because I was usually preparing for the next day’s shoot, both as an actress and as the director.
I use something that is a real staple in the directing world. It’s called a dance floor. You lay it down so that it’s so smooth you can roll around, and you can put furniture on top of it. It’s seamless and you don’t see it.
I’m always moving forward.
In scoring, we have a lot that was not evident in the shooting. The radio is on all the time.
It goes back to a style of moviemaking I remember seeing as a child, in movies like The Man With The Golden Arm, which I think was shot all on a sound stage.
Even when you have a big budget, you can’t just shoot everything.
Making this movie was a great opportunity for me to explore high-definition. I’m glad I got to see what the challenges are, and what makes them better. It works wonderfully.
The biggest challenge was that we had to shoot so quickly and with such a limited budget.
That’s the only way I can control my movie. If you shoot everything, then everything is liable to end up in the movie. If you have a vision, you don’t have to cover every scene.
The clothes back in those days were made so much better than clothes are today. They took time to make clothes to fit a woman’s body. Today they make clothes that fit sizes, so it stretches to fit this and that.
The radio for these women is like television is for us today, which is really like looking at the radio.
The riot isn’t seen in the movie, but it is alluded to. He has this one speech that gives a great sense of texture and paints a picture of what was happening in Harlem then.
Some scenes work beautifully in a moving, sweeping master, which is how I like to work.
Time management is a big part of the director’s job.
You have to examine a scene on the page first. Then you get into the basics of acting: Who are you? Who are you talking to? How do you feel about that person?
A director just pushes them a little this way or that way.
It’s kind of dangerous to cut in the camera, but that’s the only way I know how to direct.
But it was not possible to do this movie, in this matter of time, without a solid rehearsal period.
As far as pacing the shoot is concerned, I know when I’ve got it. I don’t think there’s any reason to take ten takes unless you need them.
The production team’s first meeting took place at my house. I had ideas and a color scheme in mind, how I wanted the movie to look because that has to be a real collaboration.
But out of limitations comes creativity.
While we are under the tyranny of Priests, it will ever be their interest, to invalidate the law of nature and reason, to establish systems incompatible therewith.
Those who invalidate reason ought seriously to consider whether they argue against reason with or without reason.
In those parts of the world where learning and science have prevailed, miracles have ceased; but in those parts of it, as are barbarous and ignorant, miracles are still in vogue.
Each generation must recreate liberty for its times.
You have had indeed a fair trial. It is a shocking thing when a judge of your high office is shown to have betrayed the truth and his honor, and I sentence you to the penitentiary.
You can hardly judge women’s effect on politics merely from the action of individual women officeholders.
Whether or not we establish freedom rests with ourselves.
The nature of the Catilinarian conspiracy was bad and bloody.
Life, in my estimation, is a biological misadventure that we terminate on the shoulders of six strange men whose only objective is to make a hole in one with you.
Because leaders in the women’s groups made a point of serving on the jury here whenever they were called, we have always had an unusually high type of women represented on the jury.
It will take a long time for women’s effect on politics to register so that we may properly appraise it.
It’s so worthwhile being a judge, because, if I make good, I can help prove that a woman’s place is as much on the bench, in City Council, or Congress, as in the home.
I learned law so well, that the day I graduated I sued the college, won the case, and got my tuition back.
