The saying appeared in Medieval times as a substitute for 'For God's Sake' as it was sacrilegious to take the Lord's name in vain. Precise details are not known.
For Pete's sake' is essentially a mild oath, a euphemism for 'ForGod's sake.' The latter term is considered offensive and Pete isused as a proxy for God, in this case.
The title character's name is Elliott- though it has often been misspelled in official merchandise.. To explain, the character's name is listed as "Elliott" in the opening credits, while the various books, toys, and other merchandise- even film reviews and on the backs of videos and the like- only …RARELY bear the correct spelling. The most common misspelling is "Elliot", though "Eliott" has appeared at least once as well. One can hardly be blamed for knowing Elliott's name since even Disney can't keep it straight! (MORE)

In conclusion, when we are trying to maintain objectively accepted terms or balance in any given situation, we are trying to do so "for the sake of good order".

This is the first line of the inscription on William Shakespeare's grave. It is a curse on anyone who disturbs his bones. The full poem goes something like this: "Good friend for Jesus sake forbear To dig the dust enclosed here. Blessed be the man that spares these stones And cursed be he that …moves my bones." Shakespeare himself wrote this and specifically requested this on his grave. (MORE)
For Pete's sake originated because the original, "for God's sake"was considered blasphemy. So the name Peter was substituted becausePeter was one of the original disciples of Jesus.
For Pete's sake is a minced oath, instead of saying "for Christ's ( or possibly Pity's) sake."
If you get an idea; How can you determine if it's a good idea or bad idea? Good ideas have cultural or technological consequences. If you have an idea to make a circular wheel, Then the technological applications of that are many, and consequently; that's a good idea. If you have an idea to ma…ke a square wheel, Then any effort to apply it to other devices to increase their functionality, are very few. Thus; The Square Wheel is a Bad idea. Art is the same way for most people. When art has applications and is enjoyed by many people, Or other artists steal the ideas incorporated in a given work of art, Then that's considered good, or marketable, art. Whistler refuted this by suggesting that Art didn't need to justify itself, Or prove that it had commercial value to be considered 'Real' Art...! Art is it's own justification. Art pulls itself up by it's own bootstraps and has value simply because was created, and exhibits the qualities of an imaginative existence. Accordingly so; There is no Good or Bad Art. There is only Art. Of course; You are still allowed to like or dislike a particular piece. And The Art Market has it's own ideas of how a particular piece obtains value. (MORE)

No. You can say "for the sake of myself" or "for my sake." "For my sake" sounds much better.
"Sweet Sake" comes in two forms. The first is also called "Mirin"; it is usually an inferior sakethat you can use at home for cooking or in Japanese sauces; peopledrank it as Sweet Sake during the Edo Period. It costs around $5-10per 750 ml. The second is called "Nigori" Sake and is for drinking; It… can gofrom medium sweet to creamy sweet. You decide whether you want touse it or the Mirin for cooking. Good sake should be servedslightly chilled, like white whine. Nigori starts at about $10.00per 750 ml. and goes to $30-50++ per bottle. If I were using it in a drink, I would use Nigori. If the sake isthe principal ingredient, I would use a moderately priced bottle,just as I would if I were using bourbon or any other liquor for amixed drink. Drinking it straight? Get a better bottle.

This line is from Juliet, 5th scene of act 1, itÂ´s from her first dialog with Romeo, as he makes his first move to meet Juliet. He compares her to a holy shrine, or a sacred sanctuary, and his lips as devoted pilgrims. Juliet responds that he does wrong his hands too much, and asks which mannerly… devotion was being shown as pilgrims do touch saintsÂ´ hands as palms touch like a kiss from a devotee, or a holy palmerÂ´s kiss. Then Romeo refutes if saints donÂ´t have lips and followers too. She replies that they own lips to be used only in prayer, then he calls her a dear saint and asks her to let lips do what hands do. His lips pray for a kiss, without which he will turn to dispair. Juliet replies that Saints do not move, though for prayersÂ´ sake. This is the moment when Romeo makes his move to kiss her asking her not to move while the effect of what he was praying for is taken, The KISS. "Move not, while my prayerÂ´s effect I take. Thus from my lips, by yours, my sin is purged." Juliet answers then have my lips the sin that they have took? Romeo says, sin form thy lips? Trespass sweetly urged, give me my sin again. Juliet says, you kiss by the book. And so they are interrupted by the nurse. This is the dialog that made them fall in love completely with each other. (MORE)

Sake was originally created in Japan. It is an alcoholic drink made from Japanese-style rice, polished down and fermented with a special type of mold called koji . As with wine, there are several classes and many types of sake. What really makes the idea of sake interesting is that while it is re…ferred to as a type of wine, it is more closely related to beer (in the sense that it is fermented instead of just aged). However, it does not contain carbonation like beer, and the aroma is similar to that of White Zinfandel. An important note: sake is not remotely related to gin, vodka , or any other type of hard liquor. Do not mistake it for such. After it is fermented and stabilized for about 6 months (from the beginning of the polishing process to the entrance in the market, the time is about 8-9 months) the sake is transported to the market and exported to other countries around the globe. Sake is bottled (or transported in casks; this is common on street markets in Japan and China) and bought by consumers (that would be you). Traditionally, sake was drunk from cubic, hollow wooden cups called masu . This practice was discontinued for a long time due to the taste being affected by the unfinished wood. You can still find modern versions of masu in many places. In contemporary households sake is either refridgerated or stored in dry places, with a sake serving vase and 2-4 cups, about the size of a restaurant green teacup. These vases and cups can be made from many materials, including clay, ceramics, glass, even industrial plastic. They come in many different styles, the most common being the teacup-esque container, a shot glass, and the European aperitif glass. In many bars and restaurants sake cups will be filled to the brim, as to symbolize hearty welcome and wishes of abundance and prosperity. Sometimes, in very fine establishments particularly, the modern sake cup will sit in a masu, letting the overflowing sake form a pool at the bottom of the masu. It is customary to drink sake cold, especially in glass cups, but it may be warmed. To store sake, you may keep it in a dry, warm place before opening, but after opening it should be kept cool and the top should be replaced with a secure barrier. Sake is not meant to be aged, so you should drink the majority of the bottle or cask on one occasion as to save it from spoiling. But don't let all the rules scare you away from sake, remember to have fun with it and enjoy its uniqueness! (MORE)
To make sake, sake rice is first steamed. Then Aspergillus oryzae,a type of mold, is added to the rice and allowed to ferment. Waterand yeast is then added to the rice and mold mixture and allowed tocontinue to ferment. Solids are removed from the final productthrough filtering.
Sake is Rice Wine so the obvious way would be to boil rice until soft. Strain off the liquid, which is what you would then keep to make the Sake from. Allow the liquid to cool. Once cool add wine yeast and allow to ferment.

It's a modification of the phrase, "for Christ's sake" for people who are afraid to take the Lord's name in vain. (I think the rationale is that by substituting "cripes" for "Christ", you're not committing a sin. It's the same idea as saying "gosh darn it"). The phrase means: "I am surprised or anno…yed by this" according to "The Free Disctionary". http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/for+Christ%27s+sake (MORE)

appearance's sake It's intended to mean something done for the purpose of appearance; another way of saying it is "the sake of appearance." So it becomes possessive, just like "For God's sake" or "For Pete's sake." . The apostrophe is correct but the final s is optional. "Appearance' sake" is fa…voured by some authorities as the beginning 's' in 'sake' does for both words. I think it looks odd though. (MORE)

Here is the Scripture that you refer to: Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake (John 14.11) Jesus said this in response to Philip's question, "Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us." (John 14.8) Philip was one of Jesus' twel…ve disciples and had seen many of Jesus' miracles, and Jesus was reminding him that: "he that hath seen me hath seen the Father;" (John 14.9) And - "he doeth the works." (John 14.10) And so Jesus' works prove his statement: Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? (John 14.10) (MORE)
