Amount quotes by Joe Navarro
#1. The majority of individuals view their surroundings with a minimal amount of observational effort. They are unaware of the rich tapestry of details that surrounds them, such as the subtle movement of a person's hand or foot that might betray his thoughts or intentions. #Quote by Joe Navarro
Amount quotes by Rose George
#2. Ninety percent of what we wear, we eat, we consume is carried by ships ... Container ships carry a vast amount of stuff. #Quote by Rose George
Amount quotes by Gayle Rubin
#3. Youth Liberation has argued for some time that young people should have the right to have sex as well as not to have it, and with whom they choose. The statutory structure of the sex laws has been identified as oppressive and insulting to young people. A range of sexual activities are legally defined as molestation, regardless of the quality of the relationship or the amount of consent involved. #Quote by Gayle Rubin
Amount quotes by George S. Patton
#4. There is only one tactical principle which is not subject to change. It is to use the means at hand to inflict the maximum amount of wound, death, and destruction on the enemy in the minimum amount of time. #Quote by George S. Patton
Amount quotes by Richard Dawkins
#5. The placebo effect is well documented and not even very mysterious. Dummy pills, with no pharmacological activity at all, demonstrably improve health. That is why double-blind drug trials must use placebos as controls. It's why homoeopathic remedies appear to work, even though they are so dilute that they have the same amount of active ingredient as the placebo control - zero molecules. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Amount quotes by J.R.D. Tata
#6. The wealth gathered by Jamsetji Tata and his sons in half a century of industrial pioneering formed but a minute fraction of the amount by which they enriched the nation. The whole of that wealth is held in trust for the people and used exclusively for their benefit. The cycle is thus complete; what came from the people has gone back to the people many times over. #Quote by J.R.D. Tata
Amount quotes by Jan Fields
#7. We all have a finite amount of energy and time to give, and must figure out the best way to have an impact on the things that matter to us most - and it's okay that each one of us will do it differently. #Quote by Jan Fields
Amount quotes by Chief Joseph

Amount quotes by Steven Gerrard

Amount quotes by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
#11. Psychologists usually try to help people use insight and understanding to manage their behavior. However, neuroscience research shows that very few psychological problems are the result of defects in understanding; most originate in pressures from deeper regions in the brain that drive our perception and attention. When the alarm bell of the emotional brain keeps signaling that you are in danger, no amount of insight will silence it. #Quote by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
Amount quotes by Alex Sheshunoff
#12. Midlife crises are the best-funded stage of rebellion, because, finally, the rebel himself can lavish the amount of money he feels befits the depth of his self-pity. #Quote by Alex Sheshunoff
Amount quotes by Elif Shafak
#13. Was it really better for human beings to discover more of their pasts? And then more and more ... ? Or was it simply better to know as little of the past as possible and even to forget what small amount was remembered? #Quote by Elif Shafak
Amount quotes by Wildbow
#14. ... the demons already won, a long, long time ago. They devoured the vast majority of the universe, and that's why the planets are so relatively small, compared to the sheer amount of nothingness. It's why we're so very tiny, in the grand scheme of it all.
But these things we erroneously call angels surged in strength, they spun out a complete universe from the scraps, and on select scraps, or on a select scrap, they prepared life to emerge."

Rose glanced out over the room.

"It would be easy to say that the universe is an unending repetition of creation and death. That this has happened before and it'll happen again, and this is the heartbeat of the universe. But in looking at the history of this world, both the clear history, and the one behind the curtain, something stands out. Us.

We're another force. And we're only still emerging. We're change. We're an equal to them. We just don't realize it yet. #Quote by Wildbow
Amount quotes by Peter Ustinov
#15. Her virtue was that she said what she thought, her vice that what she thought didn't amount to much.
#Quote by Peter Ustinov
Amount quotes by Byron Hyde
#16. Several years ago I was lecturing in British Columbia. Dr [Simon] Wessely was speaking and he gave a thoroughly enjoyable lecture on M.E. and CFS. He had the hundreds of staff physicians laughing themselves silly over the invented griefs of the M.E. and CFS patients who according to Dr Wessely had no physical illness what so ever but a lot of misguided imagination. I was appalled at his sheer effectiveness, the amazing control he had over the minds of the staid physicians….His message was very clear and very simple. If I can paraphrase him: "M.E. and CFS are non-existent illnesses with no pathology what-so-ever. There is no reason why they all cannot return to work tomorrow.

The next morning I left by car with my crew and arrived in Kelowna British Columbia that afternoon. We were staying at a patient's house who had severe M.E. with dysautanomia and was for all purposes bed ridden or house bound most of the day. That morning she had received a phone call from her insurance company in Toronto. (Toronto is approximately 2742 miles from Vancouver). The insurance call was as follows and again I paraphrase:
"Physicians at a University of British Columbia University have demonstrated that there is no pathological or physiological basis for M.E. or CFS. Your disability benefits have been stopped as of this month. You will have to pay back the funds we have sent you previously. We will contact you shortly with the exact amount you owe us".

That night I s #Quote by Byron Hyde
Amount quotes by Janne Teller
#17. We knew that everything was more about how it appeared than how it was. The most important thing, in any circumstance, was to amount to something that really looked like it was something. #Quote by Janne Teller
Amount quotes by
#18. Any women who say is not getting equally amount paid as men do, they don't work equal amount as man do. There are many women business owners who make more them men's do, if you are a women who think you are not getting paid equal amount, you are free to open your own business and make how much you want. #Quote by "Beta" Metani' Marashi
Amount quotes by Christina Hendricks
#19. I found myself at the beginning of 'Mad Men,' because I wasn't a sample size, spending an exorbitant amount of money on a nice dress that I would never wear again because someone would say - 'Christina Hendricks wore this dress twice.' #Quote by Christina Hendricks
Amount quotes by Garrett Hedlund
#20. A great amount of good is always evened out by a great amount of bad. I find it's best to acknowledge that weird balance. #Quote by Garrett Hedlund
Amount quotes by H.L. Mencken
#21. I know a good many men of great learning-that is, men born with an extraordinary eagerness and capacity to acquire knowledge. One and all, they tell me that they can't recall learning anything of any value in school. All that schoolmasters managed to accomplish with them was to test and determine the amount of knowledge that they had already acquired independently-and not infrequently the determination was made clumsily and inaccurately. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Amount quotes by Tom DeMarco
#22. In a healthy organization, a certain amount of failure is okay. At Microsoft, for example, there has long been an almost official policy of "sink, then swim." People are loaded down with so much responsibility that they sink (fail). Then they have a chance to rest up, to analyze and modify their own performance. Finally, they are loaded again with a comparable amount of responsibility, but this time they succeed. If they don't sink the first time, that just shows they weren't challenged enough. They can be sure that the next time out they will be challenged a lot more aggressively. To the extent that this policy is applied company-wide, Microsoft seems to be run as an Outward Bound adventure. Finding your weaknesses by failing is not just incidental; it is designed into the corporate philosophy. #Quote by Tom DeMarco
Amount quotes by John Updike
#23. A number of American colleges are willing to pay a tempting amount to pinch and poke an author for a day or two. #Quote by John Updike
Amount quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#24. Beware of power. There is no amount of it that can make them love you. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Amount quotes by Karl Ove Knausgaard
#25. But when I was twenty-four I saw life as it was. And it was okay, I had my small pleasures too, it wasn't that, and I could endure any amount of loneliness and humiliation, I was a bottomless pit, just bring it on, there were days when I could think, I receive, I am a well, I am the well of the failed, the wretched, the pitiful, the pathetic, the embarrassing, the cheerless, and the ignominious. Come on! Piss on me! Shit on me too if you want! I receive! I endure! I am endurance itself! I have never been in any doubt that this is what girls I have tried my luck with have seen in my eyes. Too much desire, too little hope. #Quote by Karl Ove Knausgaard
Amount quotes by Philip Zimbardo
#26. What troubles me is the Internet and the electronic technology revolution. Shyness is fueled in part by so many people spending huge amounts of time alone, isolated on e-mail, in chat rooms, which reduces their face-to-face contact with other people. #Quote by Philip Zimbardo
Amount quotes by Darryl Pinckney
#27. Freedom is having real choice. This offers a limited amount of choices. This is participating in a very imperfect system that we're desperately hanging onto, that we don't want to see further eroded. #Quote by Darryl Pinckney
Amount quotes by Jessica Valenti
#28. If you spend any amount of time doing media analysis, it's clear that the most frenzied moral panic surrounding young women's sexuality comes from the mainstream media, which loves to report about how promiscuous girls are, whether they're acting up on spring break, getting caught topless on camera, or catching all kinds of STIs. Unsurprisingly, these types of articles and stories generally fail to mention that women are attending college at the highest rates in history, and that we're the majority of undergraduate and master's students. Well-educated and socially engaged women just don't make for good headlines, it seems. #Quote by Jessica Valenti
Amount quotes by Wallace Shawn
#29. In terms of number of movies, I've been in an extraordinary amount. If you count only the minutes I'm onscreen, it's not so long. #Quote by Wallace Shawn
Amount quotes by Serj Tankian
#30. With rock music, the amount of power that you can generate, the intensity behind the intentions of your lyrics that you can really reflect through rock music - you can't do that in jazz. You can't do that with classical. #Quote by Serj Tankian
Amount quotes by Napoleon Hill
#31. The starting point of all achievement is DESIRE. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Amount quotes by Joseph Alois Schumpeter
#32. If we limit ourselves to painting as an example, both for brevity's sake and because in that field my ignorance is slightly less complete than it is in others, and if (wrongly, as I think) we agree to start an epoch with Giotto's Arena frescoes and then follow the line (nothing short of damnable though such "linear" arguments are) Giotto - Masaccio - Vinci - Michelangelo - Greco, no amount of emphasis on mystical ardors in the case of Greco can obliterate my point for anyone who has eyes that see. #Quote by Joseph Alois Schumpeter
Amount quotes by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
#33. As long as you keep secrets and suppress information, you are fundamentally at war with yourself…The critical issue is allowing yourself to know what you know. That takes an enormous amount of courage. #Quote by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
Amount quotes by Lionel Suggs
#34. Trust is such a devious term. When you trust someone, are you not merely assuming that they are what they say that they are? If you place so much in the trust that you have for that one person, then you should place the same amount of trust in assuming that they are not what they appear to be. If there is a wall in front of you that does not allow you to do that, then you must place all of your trust in the fact that your trust is misplaced. #Quote by Lionel Suggs
Amount quotes by Thomm Quackenbush
#35. He had carte blanche to eat whatever he wanted. No amount of broccoli and vitamin D kills ten lung tumors and I know not how many brain tumors. Have the tiramisu. #Quote by Thomm Quackenbush
Amount quotes by Tia Mowry
#36. We try to be conscious of the amount of trash we have. Having a water filter allows us to be aware of not using too many water bottles. Since I am not able to hand wash due to my schedule, I use Seventh Generation laundry detergent, and I feel less guilty. #Quote by Tia Mowry
Amount quotes by J.T. Geissinger
#37. One of the first shrinks I went to after Cass died told me that the brain has a hardwired need to find correlations, to make sense of nonsensical data by making connections between unrelated things. Humans have evolved a universal tendency to seek patterns in random information, hence the existence of fortune-tellers and dream interpreters and people who see the face of Jesus in a piece of toast. But the cold, hard truth is that there are no connections between anything. Life - all of existence - is totally random. Your lucky lottery numbers aren't really lucky, because there's no such thing as luck. The black cat that crosses your path isn't a bad omen, it's just a cat out for a walk. An eclipse doesn't mean that the gods are angry, just as a bus narrowly missing you as you cross the street doesn't mean there's a guardian angel looking out for you. There are no gods. There are no angels. Superstitions aren't real, and no amount of wishing, praying, or rationalizing can change the fact that life is just one long sequence of random events that ultimately have no meaning. I really hated that shrink. #Quote by J.T. Geissinger
Amount quotes by Peter Ames Carlin
#38. The highway's closed at a certain point. You have a certain amount of miles that you can make. It's a recognition of mortality. #Quote by Peter Ames Carlin
Amount quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#39. That amount of time is to be converted into some products, benefits, goods, services, welfare, ministry, but most of us actually truncate this amount of wealth on daily basis. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Amount quotes by Jack London
#40. Out of this pack-persecution he learned two important things: how to take care of himself in a mass-fight against him; and how, on a single dog, to inflict the greatest amount of damage in the briefest space of time. #Quote by Jack London
Amount quotes by Andra Brynn
#41. And suddenly I think: nothing is fine. It's never fine. It's always an illusion. Happy smiles, assurances, jokes, laughter - there's no way to tell if it is real, or a mask. There's always something terrible hurtling toward you, something that will destroy all that you love and alter your life forever. You may not know it, but it's coming and there's nothing you can do. No amount of hammering, or holy water, or screaming will change that.
You can scream no, and stop, and please, you can reach out and try to bend fate to your will with your own two hands, but it has already been decided. In every moment, a thousand accidents wait to happen, already in place and poised to strike, and we don't even know it #Quote by Andra Brynn
Amount quotes by Tad Williams
#42. As I continued through the streets, through the smoke of the burnings and the rubble of the fires and explosions
for during the chaos of the quarantine parts of the city had become something like war zones
my heart began to perceive that there was a wound in the material world that no amount of science could heal, that in fact science itself was only the helpful lie told to a dying man. #Quote by Tad Williams
Amount quotes by Ann Leckie
#43. I'm one of those people who always wanted to be a writer, so I have a fair amount of juvenilia, though fortunately, I was too old for my juvenilia to be on the Internet. #Quote by Ann Leckie
Amount quotes by John Frusciante
#44. I don't have an extensive background in theory, but the amount of it that I've learned, I've applied, so I have a vocabulary of melodic and rhythmic relationships. And that's all theory is - it's symbols to help you identify those relationships. #Quote by John Frusciante
Amount quotes by Jean Webster
#45. I went to bed last night utterly dejected; I thought I was never going to amount to anything, and that you had thrown away your money for nothing. But what do you think? I woke up this morning with a beautiful new plot in my head, and I've been going about all day planning my characters, just as happy as I could be. No one can ever accuse me of being a pessimist! If I had a husband and twelve children swallowed by an earthquake one day, I'd bob up smilingly the next morning and commence to look for another set. ~Jershua Abbott #Quote by Jean Webster
Amount quotes by Sharon Olds
#46. The amount of horror one used to hear about in one village could be quite extreme. But one might not have heard about all the other villages' horrors at the same time. #Quote by Sharon Olds
Amount quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#47. But I contend that the disgusting behavior of many of their alleged 'holy men' relieves us of any intellectual obligation to take the stuff seriously. No amount of sanctimonious rationalization can make such behavior anything but pathological. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Amount quotes by Charles Lindbergh
#48. A certain amount of danger is essential to the quality of life. #Quote by Charles Lindbergh
Amount quotes by Bertrand Russell
#49. A certain amount of boredom is ... essential to a happy life #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Amount quotes by Stephen Hawking
#50. Only black holes of very low mass would emit a significant amount of radiation. #Quote by Stephen Hawking
Amount quotes by Renata Adler
#51. Though films become more daring sexually, they are probably less sexy than they ever were. There haven't been any convincing love scenes or romances in the movies in a while. (Nobody even seems to neck in theaters any more.) ... when the mechanics and sadism quotients go up, the movie love interest goes dead, and the film just lies there, giving a certain amount of offense. #Quote by Renata Adler
Amount quotes by Christopher Cross
#52. I'm now wearing suits on stage, so I've kinda stepped up my game as far as image. Which I have to admit is kind of a pain the butt, but it's fun. It gives you a certain amount of confidence to walk on stage and look nice, but I can't say that I'm totally buying into the whole image factor. #Quote by Christopher Cross
Amount quotes by Anne Hathaway
#53. Because I take very seriously the idea that I can make an impact in the world, I hold back my voice so I can make more of an impact when I do use it. A cause like One Billion Rising is something I want to scream about, and I want you to take that scream seriously because I don't fall out of nightclubs. I don't have photographers capture me spending untold amounts on a handbag. #Quote by Anne Hathaway
Amount quotes by Michiel Huisman
#54. I'm always repeating myself. You never just do a scene once, you do it an insane amount of times. #Quote by Michiel Huisman
Amount quotes by Cath Crowley
#55. Get. Up,' George says, gently shoving me with her knee, which is her version of a hug. I love my sister, but, along with the rest of the world, I don't really understand her and it'd be true to say I fear her, just slightly.

She's seventeen, starting Year 12 this year. She likes learning but she hates her school. She got a scholarship to a private one on the other side of the river in Year 7 and Mum makes her stay there even though she'd rather go to Gracetown High.

She wears a huge amount of black, mostly t-shirts with things like Read, Motherfuckers on the front. Sometimes I think she likes post-apocalyptic fiction so much because she's genuinely happy at the thought that the world might end.

'Is the plan to get up sometime soon?' she asks, and I tell her no, that is not the plan. I explain the plan to her, which is basically to wait, horizontally, for life to improve. #Quote by Cath Crowley
Amount quotes by Al Gore
#56. We're putting 70 million tonnes of pollution into the atmosphere every day, trapping an enormous amount of extra heat from the sun inside the earth's atmosphere. It's threatening to push the planet past a tipping point beyond which climate change would be difficult to stop #Quote by Al Gore
Amount quotes by Mark Zuckerberg
#57. The amount of trust and bandwidth that you build up working with someone for five, seven, 10 years? It's just awesome. I care about openness and connectedness in a global sense. #Quote by Mark Zuckerberg
Amount quotes by David Byrne
#58. There's a certain amount of freedom involved in cycling: you're self-propelled and decide exactly where to go. If you see something that catches your eye to the left, you can veer off there, which isn't so easy in a car, and you can't cover as much ground walking. #Quote by David Byrne
Amount quotes by Ananda Braxton-Smith
#59. I lay pressed into the fresh-turned ground and wondered what other unknown things lay beneath me in this sog. Black beetles I could see, heaving through the moss, and if I dug I'd find any amount of fine slough-worms. Deeper than the worms I'd find the gembugs, tiny as river-pearls and living always stuck onto spreading slime-roots, glimmering in the dark for nobody. #Quote by Ananda Braxton-Smith
Amount quotes by Consuelo Vanderbilt Balsan
#60. It is a melancholy fact that childhood, so short when compared with the average span of life, should exert such a strong and permanent influence on character that no amount of self-training afterwards can ever completely counter it. #Quote by Consuelo Vanderbilt Balsan
Amount quotes by Jamaica Kincaid
#61. None of us seem to think that we should draw a line under what would be a satisfactory amount of wealth. #Quote by Jamaica Kincaid
Amount quotes by Philip K. Dick
#62. It takes a certain amount of courage, he thought, to face yourself and say with candor, I'm rotten. I've done evil and I will again. It was no accident; it emanated from the true, authentic me. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Amount quotes by Steve Harvey
#63. I'm not a doctor. I just have a tremendous amount of common sense. #Quote by Steve Harvey
Amount quotes by Ilona Andrews
#64. What did you do to Eduardo?"
"I don't know any Eduardo!" Mac wheezed.
I twisted his arm a fraction more. He cried out.
"I know your name is Mac. I know that's your redneck cousin Leroy. I know you're in Eduardo's territory, muscling in on his gig, and I know that you stole the FJ Cruiser from his fiancée. Look at me. Look at my eyes."
Mac looked up at me. His face went white. My voice was barely above a whisper, but I sank a lot of rage into it. "Eduardo is my friend. His fiancée is my friend. She is his sister." I pointed at Curran. "Tell me everything you know or I'll break your arm right here." I tapped his shoulder. "Then I'll keep breaking it here and here and here. No amount of medmagic and steel pins will fix it. It'll never work right again and it will always hurt. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Amount quotes by Seneca.
#65. What is the state of things, then? It is this: I do not regard a man as poor, if the little which remains is enough for him. I advise you, however, to keep what is really yours; and you cannot begin too early. For, as our ancestors believed, it is too late to spare when you reach the dregs of the cask.[1] Of that which remains at the bottom, the amount is slight, and the quality is vile. Farewell. #Quote by Seneca.
Amount quotes by Edith Stein
#66. Energy apparently increases with the amount of work to be done. When nothing of burning urgency is waiting, it decreases much sooner. Heaven seems to understand such economy. #Quote by Edith Stein
Amount quotes by Jillian Michaels
#67. At its core, health is simple: eat the right amount for your body, don't ingest chemicals or fake foods, and move more. #Quote by Jillian Michaels
Amount quotes by Jane Mayer
#68. Direct rule by the superrich invites a dangerous amount of scrutiny. #Quote by Jane Mayer
Amount quotes by Joe Manganiello
#69. I think when portraying someone that does exist in real life, there's an amount of respect and you want to do them justice. I don't really care what anybody says out there about what I did in the film; I care what these guys thought about what I did. If I'm making them happy, then I know I'm on the right track. #Quote by Joe Manganiello
Amount quotes by Michael Ashcroft
#70. My business affairs are entirely proper, and no amount of smear, rumour or innuendo will alter that fact. #Quote by Michael Ashcroft
Amount quotes by Rin Chupeco
#71. We can endure any amount of sadness for the people we love. #Quote by Rin Chupeco
Amount quotes by Peter Clines
#72. Zombies are like credit card payments. If you keep getting rid of the minimum amount, you'll never win. #Quote by Peter Clines
Amount quotes by Pope John Paul II
#73. The body reveals the person. This phrase tells us all there is to know about the body. Science can examine our flesh in minute detail, down to our cells and even our DNA. But no amount of scientific exploration can replace the truth that our bodies reveal us, giving form to our innermost being and unique personality. Our bodies are sacramental - they make the invisible visible. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Amount quotes by Ray Dalio
#74. Over the long run, the price of gold approximates the total amount of money in circulation divided by the size of the gold stock. If the market price of gold moves a long way from this level, it may indicate a buying or selling opportunity. #Quote by Ray Dalio
Amount quotes by Peter Hoeg
#75. The life of every person concerns something of significance. You may not be all that well fitted, but no matter. The significant factor is human nature. Against it you can perpetrate a fair amount of violence, but if it becomes too much, then you are destroyed.
It is as though science has felt that human nature was something within you were confined. Like being in detention on a red warrant. And so they have tried to push against it, as though to break out. And then it has all gone wrong.
...
Nature is not a straitjacket that must be burst open. Nature is a blessing, an opportunity for growth that has been bestowed upon all living things. #Quote by Peter Hoeg
Amount quotes by Zubin Mehta
#76. The amount of culture going on in a small country like Israel is amazing. #Quote by Zubin Mehta
Amount quotes by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
#77. A small lie, if it actually is a lie, condemns a man as much as a big and black falsehood. If a man will deliberately cheat to the amount of a single cent, give him opportunity and he would cheat to any amount. #Quote by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
Amount quotes by Mishka Shubaly
#78. Never make the mistake of thinking that alcoholics are weak, because it took an incredible amount of internal strength and conviction in order for me to keep drinking despite the growing mountain of evidence against it. #Quote by Mishka Shubaly
Amount quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#79. Knowledge of the Absolute depends upon no book, nor upon anything; it is absolute in itself. No amount of study will give this knowledge; is not theory, it is realization. Cleanse the dust from the mirror, purify your own mind, and in a flash you know that you are Brahman. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Amount quotes by Lisa Disselkamp
#80. Used carefully, and with intent, the WAM-Pro can find ways to engage this technology to influence the amount of money the organization spends on labor. #Quote by Lisa Disselkamp
Amount quotes by Seneca The Younger
#81. The proper amount of wealth is that which neither descends to poverty nor is far distant from it. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Amount quotes by Kim Raver
#82. In this business, there is an insane amount of pressure, spoken and unspoken, to be thin. If you look at some of the television shows, eating disorders become like a competitive thing. #Quote by Kim Raver
Amount quotes by Grant Hill
#83. People don't realize the amount of stress you put on your body both physically and mentally from just the wear and tear of a season. #Quote by Grant Hill
Amount quotes by Pete Hamill
#84. Bootleggers were romanticized by people like F. Scott Fitzgerald, for example. Gatsby is a bootlegger. And they were not thought of as evil criminals in the newspapers, either. There was a certain amount of affection for them. #Quote by Pete Hamill
Amount quotes by Jim Hurley
#85. There's what I'll call best practices and then there's reality. Based on our research over the past two to three years, there are significant differences in performance results that companies are experiencing with their security programs. There are some common things that are done very well among the best-class enterprises suffering the least amount of breaches and damages. But even having said that, there's probably no way to defeat a serious security threat today and it wouldn't matter what the tool is. The only way to do that would be to unplug the computers. #Quote by Jim Hurley
Amount quotes by Richard Osborne
#86. The terms that Sforza Cesarini offered Rossini, 400 Roman Scudi, were not ungenerous, though it must have been galling for Rossini to see the Figaro, Luigi Zamboni, getting almost twice as much, and the Almaviva, Manuel Garcia, being offered three times the amount. Of the first-night cast, only the 'altro buffo', Bartolomeo Botticelli, who played Bartolo, and the 'seconda donna', Elisabetta Lowselet, who played Berta, were paid less than the composer. #Quote by Richard Osborne
Amount quotes by Vivian Gornick
#87. Life, from beginning to end, is fear. Yes, it is pain, yes, it is desire, but more than anything it is fear; a certain amount rational, an enormous amount irrational. All political cruelties stem from that overwhelming fear. To push back the threatening forces, to offer primitive sacrifices, to give up some in the hope that others will be savedthat is the power struggle. That is the outsidedness of the poor, the feeble, the infantile. That is the outsidedness of Jews. That is the outsidedness of blacks. That is the outsidedness of women. #Quote by Vivian Gornick
Amount quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#88. There is but one means available to improve the material conditions of mankind: to accelerate the growth of capital accumulated as against the growth in population. The greater the amount of capital invested per head of the worker, the more and better goods can be produced and consumed. This is what capitalism, the much abused profit system, has brought about and brings about daily anew. Yet, most present-day governments and political parties are eager to destroy this system. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Amount quotes by Malachi Throne
#89. I was playing the villain 'Falseface' on Batman, and I got wind that they were going to pay a young starlet $25,000 to be in the same episode. Well, I wasn't getting anywhere near that amount of money, so I refused to let them put my name in the credits. #Quote by Malachi Throne
Amount quotes by Chip Kelly
#90. Everybody has the same amount of time during the day. You can either spend your time or invest your time. #Quote by Chip Kelly
Amount quotes by Roger Stone
#91. Stone's Rule #28
Never hold a meeting unless you know what result you want out of the meeting.

In both politics and business, the amount of labor and time wasted in meetings is huge.

It never ceases to shock me when I attend a meeting out to find out halfway into it that the organizers have no agenda and, by the end of it, have reached resolution on absolutely nothing.

A strong leader meticulously plans and methodically orchestrates meetings in order to achieve a desired result, or he doesn't hold them. #Quote by Roger Stone
Amount quotes by Gail Collins
#92. During the Obama years, the Republicans have done an unprecedented amount of stonewalling on cabinet-and-below appointees. I would also argue that their war on judicial nominees has been way beyond what went before. Really, if the president nominated God to serve on the D.C. Court of Appeals, Mitch McConnell would threaten a filibuster. #Quote by Gail Collins

Amount quotes by Randall Munroe
#94. In the Clarendon Library at Oxford University sits a battery-powered bell that has been ringing since the year 1840. The bell "rings" so quietly it's almost inaudible, using only a tiny amount of charge with every motion of the clapper. Nobody knows exactly what kind of batteries it uses because nobody wants to take it apart to figure it out. #Quote by Randall Munroe
Amount quotes by Alfred Molina
#95. My father was a waiter basically, and when I got my first professional job as an actor, I left a job that he found me for half the amount of money. So anyone would think that they're stupid, that that would be a stupid move. #Quote by Alfred Molina
Amount quotes by Eliezer Yudkowsky
#96. [ ... ] intelligent people only have a certain amount of time (measured in subjective time spent thinking about religion) to become atheists. After a certain point, if you're smart, have spent time thinking about and defending your religion, and still haven't escaped the grip of Dark Side Epistemology, the inside of your mind ends up as an Escher painting. #Quote by Eliezer Yudkowsky

#97. I don't really agree that most academics frown when they hear Wikipedia. Most academics I find quite passionate about the concept of Wikipedia and like it quite a bit. [ ... ] The number of academics who really really don't like Wikipedia is really quite small and we find that they get reported on in the media far out of proportion to the amount they actually exist. #Quote by Jimmy Wales

Amount quotes by John Stuart Mill
#100. All honor to those who can abnegate for themselves the personal enjoyment of life, when by such renunciation they contribute worthily to increase the amount of happiness in the world; but he who does it, or professes to do it, for any other purpose, is no more deserving of admiration than the ascetic mounted on his pillar. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Amount quotes by Patrick O'Brian
#101. Physically he was tired and his body relaxed throughout its entire length; his mind was in much the same state, floating free, detached, as though he had taken his old favourite, the tincture of laudanum. He felt no particular anxiety. The attempt must either succeed or fail: he hoped with all his heart for success, but 'all his heart' did not amount to a great deal now that some essential part of its core seemed to have died. Yet on the other hand he felt more able to command success in that it meant no less to him - to command it with a strength that arose not from a fundamental indifference to his own fate but from something resembling it that he could not define; it had a resemblance to despair, but a despair long past, with the horror taken out of it. #Quote by Patrick O'Brian
Amount quotes by Alain Badiou
#102. I am surprised to see that today everything that does not amount to surrender pure and simple to generalized capitalism, let us call it thus, is considered to be archaic or old-fashioned, as though in a way there existed no other definition of what it means to be modern than, quite simply, to be at all times caught in the dominant forms of the moment. #Quote by Alain Badiou
Amount quotes by Charles Dance
#103. It starts with the writing - which is really, really good. And the production values are phenomenal. HBO and Sky have spent money on it, and you get what you pay for. This has money put into it properly - not lavish amounts - but as each season is successful, they maintain the money that's being spent to maintain the quality. #Quote by Charles Dance

Amount quotes by Erich Fromm
#106. Observations show that primates in the wild show little aggression, while primates in the zoo can show an excessive amount of destructiveness. This distinction is of fundamental importance for the understanding of human aggression because man thus far in his history has hardly ever lived in his "natural habitat,", with the exception of the hunters and food gatherers and the first agriculturalists down to the fifth millenium B.C. "Civilized" man has always lived in the "Zoo" - i.e. in various degrees of captivity and unfreedom - and this is still true, even in the most advanced societies. #Quote by Erich Fromm
Amount quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#107. There are no crimes and no criminals in these days. What is the use of having brains in our profession? I know well that I have it in me to make my name famous. No man lives or has ever lived who has brought the same amount of study and of natural talent to the detection of crime which I have done. And what is the result? There is no crime to detect, or, at most, some bungling villainy with a motive so transparent that even a Scotland Yard official can see through it. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Amount quotes by Osho
#108. But you do just the opposite. You strengthen your thought-waves. You are seized by worthless thoughts and you co-operate with them. You are sitting alone, there is nothing to do and you start thinking of fighting the coming election. The dream begins! Nothing will please you short of reaching the president's chair. You have become a president in your dream. There are felicitations and you are enjoying them thoroughly! You never stop to think – what kind of stupidity is this! What are you doing? You are just giving energy to worthless fantasies. Your mind is filled with useless illusions of this kind.
The constant flow of dreams eats up a large amount of your energy. It is not for free! You purchase it at the cost of your life.

If we examine human life in detail, we will find that ninety-nine percent of the life is lost in fruitless dreams like this. Some dream of wealth, others of power, and others of various conquests. What will you gain even if you attain them all?

Thought-waves are nothing but dreams. Do not strengthen them. When the dream starts running within, shake yourself and break the dream as quickly as you can. #Quote by Osho

#109. In real life our behavior is far more complex than the textbook allows and often confounds the idea that we're purely rational. We don't save enough for retirement even though it's to our clear economic advantage to do so. We hang on to bad investments longer than we should, because we feel far sharper pain from losing money than we do from gaining the exact same amount. #Quote by Anonymous

Amount quotes by Terry Pratchett
#116. The bravest person I've ever met was a young boy going through massive amounts of treatment for a very rare, complex and unpleasant disease. I last saw him at a Discworld convention, where he chose to take part in a game as an assassin. He died not long afterwards, and I wish I had his fortitude and sense of style. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Amount quotes by Anneli Rufus
#117. Our never-ending dread has little bearing on the outside world. That is, unless and until it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Enter enough relationships already certain you will make them fail and you will make some fail. Predict you will drive everyone away and some will be driven away. Inertia. Reticence. Shuffling with heads hung low, avoiding eye contact, always apologizing, seeking reassurance but no amount is ever enough. To others, these habits of ours are exhausting and boring. Life with us is lots of work, Loving those who hate themselves is like swimming upstream: often more trouble than it is worth. #Quote by Anneli Rufus
Amount quotes by Kristen Roupenian
#118. Margot thought: oh, no. But the thought of what it would take to stop what she had set in motion was overwhelming; it would require an amount of tact and gentleness that she felt was impossible to summon. It wasn't that she was scared he would try to force her to do something against her will but that insisting they stop now, after everything she'd done to push this forward, would make her seem spoiled and capricious, as if she'd ordered something at a restaurant and then, once the food arrived, had changed her mind and sent it back. #Quote by Kristen Roupenian
Amount quotes by Burton Malkiel
#119. Index funds have regularly produced rates of return exceeding those of active managers by close to 2 percentage points. Active management as a whole cannot achieve gross returns exceeding the market as a while and therefore they must, on average, underperform the indexes by the amount of these expense and transaction costs disadvantages. #Quote by Burton Malkiel

#120. It was the economic benefit,You make a comfortable living in public service and you get a fairly comfortable retirement, if you watch your pennies and you're not extravagant. But in television, if a show goes, you make a substantial amount of money. So, economically it just didn't make sense for me not to. #Quote by Mills Lane
Amount quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#121. There is a certain amount of the divine in every government or society. In most governments and societies it is a very small amount indeed; but there is just enough, that is to say, to make that government or society go where it doesn't want to go and produce something entirely different from what it had intended. #Quote by G.K.

Amount quotes by Karl Pilkington
#123. I love nature - it's probably my most favorite thing. I don't watch much telly, the telly hardly goes on, but the things I do watch are sort of nature programs, and something about the oceans and the amount of weird fish that's in there. #Quote by Karl Pilkington

Amount quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#125. If the secret core of potlatch is the reciprocity of exchange, why is this reciprocity not asserted directly, why does it assume the "mystified" form of two consecutive acts each of which is staged as a free voluntary display of generosity? Here we encounter the paradoxes of forced choice, of freedom to do what is necessary, at its most elementary: I have to do freely what I am expected to do. (If, upon receiving a gift, I immediately return it to the giver, this direct circulation would amount to an extremely aggressive gesture of humiliation, it would signal that I refused the other's gifts - recall those embarrassing moments when elderly people forget and give us last year's present once again … )

…the reciprocity of exchange is in itself thoroughly ambiguous; at its most fundamental, it is destructive of the social bond, it is the logic of revenge, tit for tat. To cover this aspect of exchange, to make it benevolent and pacific, one has to pretend that each person's gift is free and stands on its own. This brings us to potlatch as the "pre-economy of the economy," its zero-level, that is, exchange as the reciprocal relation of two non-productive expenditures. If the gift belongs to Master and exchange to the Servant, potlatch is the paradoxical exchange between Masters. Potlach is simultaneously the zero-level of civility, the paradoxical point at which restrained civility and obscene consumption overlap, the point at which it is polite to behave impolitely. #Quote by Slavoj Zizek

Amount quotes by Paul Bettany
#127. I do feel that scripts get developed now to a point where they're sort of actor-proof. If the actor is not very good, the narrative still survives because it's all in the dialogue. Not to say there aren't great performances in English-language films, because there are every year, but the 1970s were awash with great performances, and I was wondering whether it had to do with the amount of space and the amount of responsibility given to the actors. #Quote by Paul Bettany

Amount quotes by Carroll Quigley
#129. We see that there are two different kinds of ... societies: (a) parasitic societies and (b) producing societies. The former are those which live from hunting, fishing, or merely gleaning. By their economic activities they do not increase, but rather decrease, the amount of wealth in the world. The second kind of societies, producing societies, live by agricultural and pastoral activities. By these activities they seek to increase the amount of wealth in the world. #Quote by Carroll Quigley

Amount quotes by Terry Eagleton
#131. We like to think of individuals as unique. Yet if this is true of everyone, then we all share the same quality, namely our uniqueness. What we have in common is the fact that we are all uncommon. Everybody is special, which means that nobody is. The truth, however, is that human beings are uncommon only up to a point. There are no qualities that are peculiar to one person alone. Regrettably, there could not be a world in which only one individual was irascible, vindictive or lethally aggressive. This is because human beings are not fundamentally all that different from each other, a truth postmodernists are reluctant to concede. We share an enormous amount in common simply by virtue of being human, and this is revealed by the vocabularies we have for discussing human character. We even share the social processes by which we come to individuate ourselves. #Quote by Terry Eagleton
Amount quotes by Phyllis Grissim-Theroux
#132. Rearing three children is like growing a cactus, a gardenia, and a tubful of impatiens. Each needs varying amounts of water, sunlight and pruning. Were I to be absolutely fair, I would have to treat each child as if he or she were absolutely identical to the other siblings, and there would be no profit for anyone in that. #Quote by Phyllis Grissim-Theroux

He has to experience love and acceptance. He has to know his life has purpose and meaning. No amount of money can do that. #Quote by Cal Thomas

Amount quotes by John Knowles
#137. The beach was hours away by bicycle, forbidden, completely out of all bounds. Going there risked expulsion, destroyed the studying I was going to do for an important test the next morning, blasted the reasonable amount of order I wanted to maintain in my life, and it also involved the kind of long, labored bicycle ride I hated. "All right," I said. We got our bikes and slipped away from Devon along a back road. Having invited me Finny now felt he had to keep me entertained. He told long, wild stories about his childhood; as I pumped panting up steep hills he glided along beside me, joking steadily. He analyzed my character, and he insisted on knowing what I disliked most about him ("You're too conventional," I said). #Quote by John Knowles

Amount quotes by Nathaniel Branden

#142. But about the gentleman thing." She waved her glass. "I want to make it plain as the nose on your face. I can stand anything in the book but gentlemen. Because I've spent a lot of time, too much time with them, and I know why gentlemen are what they are. They decide to be that way after they've tried all the real things and flopped at them. They've flopped at women. They've flopped at standing up on their hind legs and acting like men. So they become gentlemen. They've flopped at being individuals. So they say to themselves one fine morning: 'What can I be that's no trouble at all and that doesn't amount to a damned thing, but yet will make everyone look up to me?' The answer's simple. Be a gentleman. Take life flat on your back, cry in private, and then in a well-modulated voice. #Quote by Elliot Chaze
Amount quotes by Hans Fallada
#143. They had failed to understand that there was no such thing as private life in wartime Germany.

More and more we are taught something throughout our growing up, our education, and continuously, no matter how much we believe in this thing, something comes up that forces us to revise our entire belief system.

Take a factory, a railway, a ship on the high seas, is it not clear that not one of these complex technical establishments, based on the use of machinery and the systematic co-operation of many people, could function without a certain amount of subordination and, consequently, without a certain amount of authority or power? #Quote by Frederick Engels

#146. I'm a thinker. That is what I do, in great depth and detail, every waking moment of the day. I like to believe it's worthwhile. And yet, I can't help but recall something ... said to me once when I was young: "All of these things with which we occupy ourselves don't amount to much in the cosmic scale of things, do they? No matter how extensively we ponder any particular topic, there is really very little there"

#148. Set your target price (your goal). 2. Set your first offer at 65 percent of your target price. 3. Calculate three raises of decreasing increments (to 85, 95, and 100 percent). 4. Use lots of empathy and different ways of saying "No" to get the other side to counter before you increase your offer. 5. When calculating the final amount, use precise, nonround numbers like, say, $37,893 rather than $38,000. It gives the number credibility and weight. 6. On your final number, throw in a nonmonetary item (that they probably don't want) to show you're at your limit. The #Quote by Chris Voss

#150. Perhaps the clearest and deepest meaning of brotherhood is the ability to imagine yourself in the other person's position, and then treat that person as if you were him or her.

Dum also checks to make sure his mic is off. 'It's not about logic or practicality or anything that makes a remote amount of sense.' He sports a wide grin.

'That's the whole point of a talent show,' says Dee, doing a spin onstage. 'It's illogical, chaotic, stupid, and a whole hell of a lot of fun.' Dee nods to Dum. 'It's what sets us apart from monkeys. What other species puts on talent shows? #Quote by Susan Ee

#155. As I was trying to climb this slippery empathy wall, a subversive thought occurred to me: do we need all the new plastic the American Chemical Association is promising us? Weren't we entering into a strange cycle? Many people I was talking to carried around plastic water bottles, partly for convenience, partly out of distrust of local waters. And with cheap natural gas at hand, the American Chemical Association said it could triple the amount of feedstock needed to make plastic. But if we triple our plastics, more petrochemical companies will pollute more public waters, which will lead more people to pay for more plastic bottles filled with ever more scarce clean water. We'll throw away more plastic bottles, buy more, and further expand the market for plastic, the production of which pollutes water. But I was straying from my goal, getting into the spirit of things.

Amount quotes by Dan Ariely
#161. This result suggests that cheating is not driven by concerns about standing out. Rather, it shows that our sense of our own morality is connected to the amount of cheating we feel comfortable with. Essentially, we cheat up to the level that allows us to retain our self-image as reasonably honest individuals. #Quote by Dan Ariely
Amount quotes by Tracy Thompson
#162. It seemed to me the basic definition of mental illness, this persistent, painful inability to simply be with someone else. It might be lifelong, or it might descend like a sudden catastrophe, this blankness between ourselves and the rest of the world. The blankness might not even be obvious to others. But on our side of that severed connection, it was hell, a life lived behind glass. The only difference between mild depression and severe schizophrenia was the amount of sound and air that seeped in. #Quote by Tracy Thompson
Amount quotes by Charles Darwin
#163. When we compare the individuals of the same variety or sub-variety of our older cultivated plants and animals, one of the first points which strikes us is, that they generally differ more from each other than do the individuals of any one species or variety in a state of nature. And if we reflect on the vast diversity of the plants and animals which have been cultivated, and which have varied during all ages under the most different climates and treatment, we are driven to conclude that this great variability is due to our domestic productions having been raised under conditions of life not so uniform as, and somewhat different from, those to which the parent species had been exposed under nature. There is, also, some probability in the view propounded by Andrew Knight, that this variability may be partly connected with excess of food. It seems clear that organic beings must be exposed during several generations to new conditions to cause any great amount of variation; and that, when the organisation has once begun to vary, it generally continues varying for many generations. No case is on record of a variable organism ceasing to vary under cultivation. Our oldest cultivated plants, such as wheat, still yield new varieties: our oldest domesticated animals are still capable of rapid improvement or modification. #Quote by Charles Darwin

Amount quotes by Terry Pratchett
#168. O: You're quite a writer. You've a gift for language, you're a deft hand at plotting, and your books seem to have an enormous amount of attention to detail put into them. You're so good you could write anything. Why write fantasy?

Pratchett: I had a decent lunch, and I'm feeling quite amiable. That's why you're still alive. I think you'd have to explain to me why you've asked that question.

O: It's a rather ghettoized genre.

P: This is true. I cannot speak for the US, where I merely sort of sell okay. But in the UK I think every book - I think I've done twenty in the series - since the fourth book, every one has been one the top ten national bestsellers, either as hardcover or paperback, and quite often as both. Twelve or thirteen have been number one. I've done six juveniles, all of those have nevertheless crossed over to the adult bestseller list. On one occasion I had the adult best seller, the paperback best-seller in a different title, and a third book on the juvenile bestseller list. Now tell me again that this is a ghettoized genre.

O: It's certainly regarded as less than serious fiction.

P: (Sighs) Without a shadow of a doubt, the first fiction ever recounted was fantasy. Guys sitting around the campfire - Was it you who wrote the review? I thought I recognized it - Guys sitting around the campfire telling each other stories about the gods who made lightning, and stuff like that. They did not tell one another #Quote by Terry Pratchett

There are some vivid scenes and quotable phrases but there's no plot, no structure, a tremendous amount of filler and the characters are painfully one dimensional.

#173. David's mouth dripped open slowly. He stood with his heels dug into my carpet, a dashed hope, a broken dream. No amount of money could top the priceless look that gathered on his face like an unmade bed. His eyebrows crumpled and furrowed like disheveled sheets. His lips curled into an acidic smirk. Confusion and shock collided in the cornea of his dilated pupils. He was a B.B. King song, personified. His entire body sang the blues. #Quote by Brandi L. Bates

I'm pretty lazy. So I really don't mind it. But I'm lucky; I work fairly steadily. I'm lucky that I've managed to do that. #Quote by Paul Giamatti
Amount quotes by Thomas Aquinas
#178. The image of God always abides in the soul, whether this image be obsolete and clouded over as to amount to almost nothing; or whether it be obscured or disfigured, as is the case with sinners; or whether it be clear and beautiful as is the case with the just. #Quote by Thomas Aquinas
Amount quotes by Karl Wiggins
#179. Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, is another person who I like. I like her sassy ass. I think Sheryl has an ungodly amount of cool #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Amount quotes by Jill Stein
#180. The Keystone pipeline will spew a massive amount of carbon pollution into our fragile atmosphere. It should be stopped. #Quote by Jill Stein
Amount quotes by Frederick Lenz
#181. A human being can only absorb a small amount of the mystical kundalini, you can be exposed again and again to it, but it won't really make a difference. You can only absorb so much. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Amount quotes by John Nichol
#182. The rare derpicus man is know to live near the himalayas, in a cave made purely of dead weevils. His native tounge is unknown, but what I've translated contains a grat amount of the words, "pootis, derp, poop, and nnnnyyyyaaaaannnn! #Quote by John Nichol
Amount quotes by Peter Wohlleben
#183. Students at the instituted for Environmental Research at RWTH Aachen discovered something amazing about photosynthesis in undisturbed beech forests. Apparently, the trees synchronize their performance so that they are all equally successful. And that is not what one would expect. Each beech tree grows in a unique location, and conditions can vary greatly in just a few yards. The soil can be stony or loose. It can retain a great deal of water or almost no water. It can be full of nutrients or extremely barren. Accordingly, each tree experiences different growing conditions; therefore, each tree grows more quickly or more slowly and produces more or less sugar or wood, and thus you would expect every tree to be photosynthesizing at a different rate.

And that's what makes the research results so astounding. The rate of photosynthesis is the same for all the trees. The trees, it seems, are equalizing differences between the strong and the weak. Whether they are thick or thin, all members of the same species are using light to produce the same amount of sugar per leaf. This equalization is taking place underground through the roots. There's obviously a lively exchange going on down there. Whoever has an abundance of sugar hands some over; whoever is running short gets help. Once again, fungi are involved. Their enormous networks act as gigantic redistribution mechanisms. It's a bit like the way social security systems operate to ensure individual members of society don' #Quote by Peter Wohlleben

Amount quotes by Chris Pine
#185. I had horrible acne when I was a kid. I felt like a complete and utter ne'er do well and someone who didn't fit in and wasn't handsome. So, I understand implicitly, and with a great amount of empathy, a man or human being that feels that way. #Quote by Chris Pine
Amount quotes by Sun Tzu
#186. From the ancient Chinese commentators found in the Giles edition. Of these four, Giles' 1910 edition is the most scholarly and presents the reader an incredible amount of information concerning Sun Tzu's text, much more than any other translation. The Giles' edition of the ART OF WAR, as stated above, was a scholarly work. Dr. Giles was a leading sinologue at the time and an assistant in the Department #Quote by Sun Tzu
Amount quotes by Raymond Chandler
#187. There are people who can write their memoirs with a reasonable amount of honesty, and there are people who simply cannot take themselves seriously enough. I think I might be the first to admit that the sort of reticence which prevents a man from exploiting his own personality is really an inverted sort of egotism. #Quote by Raymond Chandler
Amount quotes by Hanya Yanagihara
#188. Flora had not seemed to mind the excessive amount of time their parents demanded from them, which had meant that he could spend more time in his room working on his model houses and less time downstairs in the den, fidgeting through one of his father's interminable Ozu film festivals. #Quote by Hanya Yanagihara
Amount quotes by Julie Kagawa
#189. Time has no meaning in the wyldwood. Day and night don't really exist here, just light and darkness, and they can be as fickle and moody as everything else. A "night" can pass in the space of a blink, or go on forever. Light and darkness will chase each other through the sky, play hide-and-seek or tag or catch-me-if-you-can. Sometimes, one or the other will become offended ... and refuse to come out for an indefinite amount of time. Once, light became so angry, a hundred years passed in the mortal realm before it deigned to come out again. And though the sun continued to rise and set in the human world, it was a rather turbulent period for the world of men, as all the creatures who lurked in darkness and shadow got to roam freely under the lightless Nevernever skies. #Quote by Julie Kagawa
Amount quotes by Richard Branson
#190. Starting a business is a huge amount of hard work ... You had better enjoy it. #Quote by Richard Branson

#192. Aside from mastery in the fine arts, success in learning anything is the result of genuine interest and amount of energy dedicated to it. #Quote by Kato Lomb
Amount quotes by Ashly Lorenzana
#193. And once it's reached that point, I'm left as alone as I've always known is the safest I could ever be. Except that I have the worst pain I've ever felt, and I feel it all. It's all of mine to feel. The only thing I'm sure is absolutely real. It keeps me company. The same way it would be trapped somewhere with someone that you hate. Wishing they weren't there, but needing them to be there. This is where the old survival skills start coming back, not quite as at my command as they used to be. They tell me to keep my right amount of distance, the only real way to be strong. But then I realize those parts of me that have been pieced together and have come back, to different degrees. Their revival works against survival. I know how to make myself untouchable. But when I tell myself how to, something answers me by telling me it's too late for that. #Quote by Ashly Lorenzana
Amount quotes by Mohamed ElBaradei
#194. The simple fact is that there is a limited amount of water on the planet, and we cannot afford to be negligent in its use. We cannot keep treating it as if it will never run out. #Quote by Mohamed ElBaradei
Amount quotes by Bernie Sanders
#195. There is a reason why these people [from Wall Street] are putting huge amounts of money into our political system. And in my view, it is undermining American democracy and it is allowing Congress to represent wealthy campaign contributors and not the working families of this country. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Amount quotes by Eric Weiner
#196. In a fascinating study, psychologist David McClelland found a direct link between Greek accomplishments and the prominence of "achievement themes" in the literature of the day. The greater the amount of such inspirational literature, the greater their "real-world" achievements. Conversely, when the frequency of inspirational literature diminished, so did their accomplishments. At #Quote by Eric Weiner
Amount quotes by Warren Farrell
#197. The most unacknowledged spending expectation among women is the amount of time spent by single mothers caring for children, not only physically, but psychologically. It is my feeling that only a small percentage of a mother's time is normally compensated for by child support, given what a woman could make adding these hours to workforce hours ... It is why women who have never been married and never had children earn so much more in the workplace than women who have had children. #Quote by Warren Farrell
Amount quotes by Thomas Mars
#198. The idea is not to please the most amount of people. Growing up in Versailles, the idea was to please the least amount of people. #Quote by Thomas Mars
Amount quotes by Deirdre O'Kane
#199. My salary swings an unbelievable amount. When I had Holly, I took seven months off, so my salary was very low. It fluctuates wildly. No one pays you for the period you spend writing. I am certainly not rich. #Quote by Deirdre O'Kane
Amount quotes by Oliver DeMille
#200. No U.S. president can "fix" education, no law can systematize inspiration, and no amount of funding, policy or resources can structure passion. #Quote by Oliver DeMille
