I feel that the Second Amendment is the right to keep and bear arms for our citizenry. This not for someone who’s in the military. This is not for law enforcement. This is for us. And, in fact, when you read that Constitution and the Founding Fathers, they intended this to stop tyranny.
Your political reputation affects how likely allies are to trust you, and what kind of deals they’ll offer at the negotiating table. There’s also some emotional response in there, so factions do bear grudges. Just like the real thing.

I’ve always been battling this perception people have of me, this character. It follows me around. ‘Bubba the Bear’ shows up when I’m checking into a hotel, when I’m on a plane. I can’t get upset with people if they’re only aware of a small part of my body of work. But inside I do.
I realised the animal agriculture industry is actually awful and tragic and I can’t bear to be a part of that. The environmental impact of the agriculture industry, the health impact on us, there’s all the reasons.
As a kid, I was a dancer in Dick Whittington, Snow White and Cinderella. When I was 14, I played Baby Bear. I had a big head on, and you couldn’t see my face. My mum was very disappointed.
I’m not sure if I could bear to go on an aeroplane again. It’s not my concern for the welfare of the planet. It’s not even the long check-in times and queuing. No, it’s the humiliation of the security process that has finally done it for me.
By standing still, we’re making the things we don’t like about Obamacare even worse, forcing Missourians to bear all the costs of this law – and reap none of the benefits.

Free migration within Europe means that countries that have done a better job at reducing unemployment will predictably end up with more than their fair share of refugees. Workers in these countries bear the cost in depressed wages and higher unemployment, while employers benefit from cheaper labor.

For some, the fear of coming out is so great, they can continue to live an inauthentic life. But at a certain point, the pain becomes too much to bear. For me, having one more day pass by where I wasn’t living my true self seemed like such a wasted opportunity, such a wasted life.

I’ve always been quite thrifty. I can’t bear to spend hundreds of pounds on designer clothes. I shop in second-hand shops in Portobello Road and go to Sue Ryder.
I could bear being in the charts and being on everyone’s car radio 10 times a day. I’m just terrified of… a lot of people I respect have done it with a real little ‘ditty’ and that was the end of it – that was all they were ever known for.
Let us tell our legislators in advance, that this is a right, restraints on which, we will not, cannot bear; and that every attempt to restrain it is a palpable wrong on God and man.

I can’t bear it that Douglas isn’t still here.
Ignorance and superstition ever bear a close and mathematical relation to each other.
Not only are mandatory minimum laws overly punitive and discriminatory, but they’re also expensive. Prison is not free. Governments, and ultimately taxpayers, bear the costs.

I’ve had many nicknames over the years: V, Nessa, Nessy Poo, Nessy Bear and Van. Only my parents call me Van, though, and I hate it. I get embarrassed.
Most people are remarkably resilient. Even those who have been through war or great loss often find reservoirs of strength. But the legacy of trauma is a heavy burden to bear.
I always knew that my identity wasn’t in football. It wasn’t in baseball. I knew it’s always been in Christ and just my upbringing has always led me to have a tremendous faith that God was going to see me through and he would not give me too much that I couldn’t bear.
My assistants will bear testimony to the fact that I am a very angry man.

To act: that is what the writer would like to be able to do, above all. To act, rather than to bear witness.
