Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by B.H. Liddell Hart
#1. In any problem where an opposing force exists and cannot be regulated, one must foresee and provide for alternative courses. Adaptability is the law which governs survival in war as in life ... To be practical, any plan must take account of the enemy's power to frustrate it; the best chance of overcoming such obstruction is to have a plan that can be easily varied to fit the circumstances met. #Quote by B.H. Liddell Hart
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Noam Chomsky
#2. however, is that there is no alternative. Communist societies, social democracies, and even modest social welfare states like the United States have all failed, the neoliberals proclaim, and their citizens have accepted neoliberalism as the only feasible course. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Nan Merrick Phifer
#3. An opportunity lost may have motivated us to find a satisfying alternative. Adversity or suffering may have taught us certain important skills. Some writers have felt new appreciation for their lives after surviving a serious illness or disability. A fortunate outcome does not invalidate the unfortunate aspect. #Quote by Nan Merrick Phifer
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by James Franco
#4. I loved the world of Oz. I guess as a young man, I was just drawn to fantasy worlds. I liked being transported to alternative realms where a lot of my early imagination was sparked. #Quote by James Franco
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Ben Aaronovitch
#5. The voice belonged to a plump, round-faced woman of the sort that develops a good personality because the alternative is suicide. #Quote by Ben Aaronovitch

#7. What is the alternative to understanding the complexity of the world? #Quote by Atul Gawande
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Steve Keen
#8. From this failure to expunge the microeconomic foundations of neoclassical economics from post-Great Depression theory arose the "microfoundations of macroeconomics" debate, which ultimately led to a model in which the economy is viewed as a single utility-maximizing individual blessed with perfect knowledge of the future.
Fortunately, behavioral economics provides the beginnings of an alternative vision of how individuals operate in a market environment, while multi-agent modelling and network theory give us foundations for understanding group dynamics in a complex society. These approaches explicitly emphasize what neoclassical economics has evaded: that aggregation of heterogeneous individuals results in emergent properties of the group, which cannot be reduced to the behavior of any "representative individual." These approaches should replace neoclassical microeconomics completely. #Quote by Steve Keen
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by David Fleming
#9. Localisation stands, at best, at the limits of practical possibility, but it has the decisive argument in its favour that there will be no alternative. #Quote by David Fleming
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Paul Kalanithi
#10. A scan showed that a benign brain tumor was pressing on her right frontal lobe. In terms of operative risk, it was the best kind of tumor to have, and the best place to have it; surgery would almost certainly eliminate her seizures. The alternative was a lifetime on toxic antiseizure medications. #Quote by Paul Kalanithi
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Ben Edwards
#11. While mainstream media is led by profit, ratings and popularist culture and filtered by the current political climate, Alternative Media is lead solely by the convictions of the campaign and film maker. #Quote by Ben Edwards
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Ashwin Sanghi
#12. Winning an award is a great feeling but winning the Vodafone Crossword Popular Choice Award is particularly exhilarating because it is based upon public voting. I find it a strange quirk of fate that Chanakya's Chant, a political tale, should end up winning an election! #Quote by Ashwin Sanghi
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Mark Forsyth
#13. The alternative, should you, or any writer of English, choose to employ it (and who is to stop you?) is, by use of subordinate clause upon subordinate clause, which itself may be subordinated to those clauses that have gone before or after, to construct a sentence of such labyrinthine grammatical complexity that, like Theseus before you when he searched the dark Minoan mazes for that monstrous monster, half bull and half man, or rather half woman for it had been conceived from, or in, Pasiphae, herself within a Daedalian contraption of perverted invention, you must unravel a ball of grammatical yarn lest you wander for ever, amazed in the maze, searching through dark eternity for a full stop. #Quote by Mark Forsyth
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Kim Barnouin
#14. I transitioned to being a vegan slowly. I took out beef and chicken first and did research on alternative forms of protein. Then after a few months, I gave up something else but added in new things. You need to bring in new food when you take away the old food you are giving up. Learn about what foods you should be eating. #Quote by Kim Barnouin
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Nate Silver
#15. Good innovators typically think very big and they think very small. New ideas are sometimes found in the most granular details of a problem where few others bother to look. And they are sometimes found when you are doing your most abstract and philosophical thinking, considering why the world is the way that it is and whether there might be an alternative to the dominant paradigm. Rarely can they be found in the temperate latitudes between they two spaces, where we spend 99 percent of our lives. #Quote by Nate Silver
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Stanislaw Lem
#16. The twentieth century had dispensed with the formal declaration of war and introduced the fifth column, sabotage, cold war, and war by proxy, but that was only the begining. Summit meetings for disarmament pursued mutual understanding and a balance of power but were also held to learn the strengths and weaknesses of the enemy. The world of the war-or-peace alternative became a world in which war was peace and peace war. #Quote by Stanislaw Lem
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Peter Medawar
#17. The alternative to thinking in evolutionary terms is not to think at all. #Quote by Peter Medawar
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Albert Laszlo Barabasi
#18. There is an old debate," Erdos liked to say, "about whether you create mathematics or just discover it. In other words, are the truths already there, even if we don't yet know them?" Erdos had a clear answer to this question: Mathematical truths are there among the list of absolute truths, and we just rediscover them. Random graph theory, so elegant and simple, seemed to him to belong to the eternal truths. Yet today we know that random networks played little role in assembling our universe. Instead, nature resorted to a few fundamental laws, which will be revealed in the coming chapters. Erdos himself created mathematical truths and an alternative view of our world by developing random graph theory. Not privy to nature's laws in creating the brain and society, Erdos hazarded his best guess in assuming that God enjoys playing dice. His friend Albert Einstein, at Princeton, was convinced of the opposite: "God does not play dice with the universe. #Quote by Albert Laszlo Barabasi
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Ronnie Montrose
#19. When you have a life-threatening illness like cancer, and you're faced with the alternative, it gives doing whatever it is you do a much sweeter taste. #Quote by Ronnie Montrose

Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by David Duffield
#22. Yeah, I could go rock on the back porch and do crossword puzzles - but I've got six kids, ages 9 to 16, and someone in the family should work. That's me. #Quote by David Duffield
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by David Limbaugh
#23. The promises of pie-in-the-sky liberal environmentalists that we can convert to 'clean' energy sources and stimulate our economy are based on dubious environmental and economic assumptions, fantastic notions about alternative energy, and a disturbing acceptance of the tyrannies inherent in command-control economies. #Quote by David Limbaugh
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Jeffrey Rosen
#24. I don't think he would have had any trouble answering Justice Sonia Sotomayor's excellent challenge in a case involving GPS surveillance. She said we need an alternative to this whole way of thinking about the privacy now which says that when you give data to a third party, you have no expectations of privacy. And [Louis] Brandeis would have said nonsense, of course you have expectations of privacy because it's intellectual privacy that has to be protected. That's my attempt to channel him on some of those privacy questions. #Quote by Jeffrey Rosen
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Karina Halle
#25. If there was a moment that determined the course of my future, I'm pretty sure this was it. I had two somewhat simple choices. I could make a run for it and go back to Uncle Al's. Back to the bonfire where my cousins and dear sister would be drinking and revel in the normalcy of a Saturday night and forget I ever went to this horrid place and ran into this weirdo. Or I could go with said weirdo up the stairs in this decrepit old lighthouse, which was most likely condemned and unsafe, towards some unknown person (or thing) that was walking around, potentially waiting to murder us in horrific ways.

It didn't seem like a very hard decision to make. In fact, I think 99.7% of people in the right frame of mind would have picked from column A and gone on with their merry lives. But for some freaking crazy reason, I thought that maybe, just maybe I should go with this stranger up those kelp-ridden stairs and toward the lair of unimaginable horror. You know, because it was the more interesting alternative. #Quote by Karina Halle
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Maude Barlow
#26. We are committed with our lives to building a different model and a different future for humanity, the Earth, and other species. We have envisaged a moral alternative to economic globalization and we will not rest until we see it realized. #Quote by Maude Barlow
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by James Arlen Dennis
#27. Accepting one's age and mortality is a sign that you've now become an adult. Once you realize you no longer fit in the same jeans you did when you were 30, and the spicy foods you loved when you were younger now like to revisit you at 2 AM, you come to realize that with aging comes adjustment. And, aging isn't a bad thing - it sure beats the alternative! #Quote by James Arlen Dennis
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by John Thorn
#28. For many of us, sport has provided the continuity in our lives, the alternative family to the one we left behind. It gives us something to talk about, to preen about, to care about. #Quote by John Thorn
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#29. Not everybody is intelligent, but every body is intelligent. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Zachary M. Schrag
#30. Understanding Metro's history may illuminate today's debates. To conservatives who decry Metro's expense--around $10 billion in nominal dollars--this book serves as a reminder that Metro was never intended to be the cheapest solution to any problem, and that it is the product of an age that did not always regard cheapness as an essential attribute of good government. To those who celebrate automobile commuting as the rational choice of free Americans, it replies that some Americans have made other choices, based on their understanding that building great cities is more important than minimizing average commuting time. This book may also answer radicals who believe that public funds should primarily--or exclusively--serve the poor, which in the context of transportation means providing bus and rail transit for the carless while leaving the middle class to drive. It suggests that Metro has done more for inner-city African Americans than is generally understood. And to those hostile to public mega-projects as a matter of principle, it responds that it may take a mega-project to kill a mega-project. Had activists merely opposed freeways, they might as well have been dismissed as cranks by politicians and technical experts alike. By championing rapid transit as an equally bold alternative, they won allies, and, ultimately, victory.

Most important, this book recalls the belief of Great Society liberals that public investments should serve all classes and all races, rathe #Quote by Zachary M. Schrag
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Cary Elwes
#31. Is it fair to call The Princess Bride a classic? The storybook story about pirates and princesses, giants and wizards, Cliffs of Insanity and Rodents of Unusual Size? It's certainly one of the most often quoted films in cinema history, with lines like:
"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."
"Anybody want a peanut?"
"Have fun storming the castle."
"Never get involved in a land war in Asia."
"Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something."
"Rest well, and dream of large women."
"I hate for people to die embarrassed."
"Please consider me as an alternative to suicide."
"This is true love. You think this happens every day?"
"Get used to disappointment."
"I'm not a witch. I'm your wife."
"Mawidege. That bwessed awangement."
"You seem a decent fellow. I hate to kill you."... You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die."
"Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while."
"Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!"
"There's a shortage of perfect breasts in this world. It would be a pity to damage yours."
And of course...
"As you wish. #Quote by Cary Elwes
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Daniel L. Everett
#32. They have no craving for truth as a transcendental reality. Indeed, the concept has no place in their values. Truth to the Pirahãs is catching a fish, rowing a canoe, laughing with your children, loving your brother, dying of malaria. Does this make them more primitive? Many anthropologists have suggested so, which is why they are so concerned about finding out the Pirahãs notions about God, the world, and creation.

But there is an interesting alternative to think about things. Perhaps it is their presence of these concerns that makes a culture more primitive, and their absense that renders a culture more sophisticated. If that is true, the Pirahãs are a very sophisticated people. Does this sound far-fetched? Let's ask ourselves if it is more sophisticated to look at the universe with worry, concern, and a believe that we can understand it all, or to enjoy life as it comes, recognizing the likely futility of looking for truth or God? #Quote by Daniel L. Everett
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Elon Musk
#33. I do think there is a lot of potential if you have a compelling product and people are willing to pay a premium for that. I think that is what Apple has shown. You can buy a much cheaper cell phone or laptop, but Apple's product is so much better than the alternative, and people are willing to pay that premium. #Quote by Elon Musk
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Michele Bachmann
#34. I'd like to give zero out capital gains tax and zero out the dividends tax, zero out alternative minimum tax, and zero out the death tax. #Quote by Michele Bachmann
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Charlie Herrick
#35. Where a person has no control, he will turn to violence; either to attain control, or as an alternative to it. #Quote by Charlie Herrick
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by David Frayne
#36. To any who would suggest that there is no alternative to the work-centred society, I submit that it is a profoundly sad society that cannot envisage a future where a sense of social solidarity and purpose are achieved through anything other than commodity relations. [ch.eight] #Quote by David Frayne
Avoirdupois Alternative Crossword quotes by Alex Berenson
#37. Lower interest rates are usually considered good for stocks because they lower the cost of borrowing and make bonds a less attractive alternative investment. #Quote by Alex Berenson
