Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Louise Erdrich
#1. All through my life I never did believe in human measurement. Numbers, time, inches, feet. All are just ploys for cutting nature down to size. I know the grand scheme of the world is beyond our brains to fathom, so I don't try, just let it in. #Quote by Louise Erdrich
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Peter Arnett
#2. President Bush says he is concerned about the Iraqi people, but if Iraqi people are dying in numbers, then American policy will be challenged very strongly. #Quote by Peter Arnett
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Elizabeth Bowen
#3. But in general, for the purposes of most novelists, the number of objects genuinely necessary for ... describing a scene will be found to be very small. #Quote by Elizabeth Bowen
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Steve Inskeep
#4. The number of CEOs voluntarily leaving their jobs or being forced out spiked early. Many of those companies will be turning to an interim CEO to take the reins. These temporary leaders are increasingly in demand, according to those who watch corner office trends. #Quote by Steve Inskeep
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#5. The younger generation of today has grown up in a world in which in school and press the spirit of commercial enterprise has been represented as disreputable and the making of profit as immoral, where to employ a hundred people is represented as exploitation but to command the same number as honorable. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Truman Capote
#6. I have my superstitions, though. They could be termed quirks. I have to add up all numbers: there are some people I never telephone because their number adds up to an unlucky figure. Or I won't accept a hotel room for the same reason. I will not tolerate the favorite flower. I can't allow three cigarette butts in the same ashtray. Won't travel on a place with two nuns. Won't begin or end anything on a Friday. It's endless, the things I can't and won't. But I derive some curious comfort from obeying theses primitive concepts. #Quote by Truman Capote
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Plato
#7. Wherefore also these Kinds [elements] occupied different places even before the universe was organised and generated out of them. Before that time, in truth, all these were in a state devoid of reason or measure, but when the work of setting in order this Universe was being undertaken, fire and water and earth and air, although possessing some traces of their known nature, were yet disposed as everything is likely to be in the absence of God; and inasmuch as this was then their natural condition, God began by first marking them out into shapes by means of forms and numbers. #Quote by Plato
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Mark Twain
#8. Between 1870 and 1905 Mark Twain (Samuel L. Clemens) tried repeatedly, and at long intervals, to write (or dictate) his autobiography, always shelving the manuscript before he had made much progress. By 1905 he had accumulated some thirty or forty of these false starts - manuscripts that were essentially experiments, drafts of episodes and chapters; many of these have survived in the Mark Twain Papers and two other libraries. To some of these manuscripts he went so far as to assign chapter numbers that placed them early or late in a narrative which he never filled in, let alone completed. None dealt with more than brief snatches of his life story. #Quote by Mark Twain
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Jason Flemyng
#9. When I was 17 me and my friend had mopeds. We used to play a game where we would close our eyes and drive while counting to the highest number we could. Once I got to eight, and that was pretty much the most stupid thing I've ever done in my life. I ended up on the other side of the road. #Quote by Jason Flemyng
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Peter Matthiessen
#10. By midafternoon soft snow is falling, muffling four voices that rise from the cardinal points around the circle, north, south, east, and west,intoning names from registration lists obtained by Rainer from museum archives in Berlin--long lists that represent but tiny fractions of that fraction of new prisoners who survived, however briefly, the first selections on this platform and were tattooed with small blue numbers. The impeccable lists include city and country of origin, arrival date, and date of death, not infrequently on that same day or the next.

Column after column, page after page, of the more common family names ascend softly from the circle of still figures to be borne away on gusts of wind-whirled snow. Schwartz, Herschel; Schwartz, Isaac A.; Schwartz, Isaac D.; Schwartz, Isidor--Who? Isidor? You too? The voices are all but inaudible as befits snuffed-out identities that exist only on lists, with no more reality than forgotten faces in old photo albums--Who's this bald guy in the back? Stray faces of no more significance than wind fragments of these names of long ago, of no more substance than this snowflake poised one moment on his pen before dissolving into voids beyond all Knowing. In Paradise 87-88 #Quote by Peter Matthiessen
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Kate Bush
#11. Numbers are really fascinating things, and they do play a big part in our lives. They are a language of their own. #Quote by Kate Bush
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Margaret Thatcher
#12. Some Socialists seem to believe that people should be numbers in a State computer. We believe they should be individuals. We are all unequal. No one, thank heavens, is like anyone else, however much the Socialists may pretend otherwise. We believe that everyone has the right to be unequal but to us every human being is equally important. #Quote by Margaret Thatcher
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Karl Marx
#13. The most interesting acquaintanceship I have struck up here is that of Colonel Lapinski. He is without doubt the cleverest Pole
besides being an homme d'action [man of action]
that I have ever met. His sympathies are all on the German side, though in manners and speech he is also a Frenchman. He cares nothing for the struggle of nationalities and only knows the racial struggle. He hates all Orientals, among whom he numbers Russians Turks, Greeks, Armenians, etc., with equal impartiality ... His aim now is to raise a German legion in London ... #Quote by Karl Marx
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Carroll O'Connor
#14. One irreducible residual of 38 years in the business is the number of lasting, loving friendships I have made. #Quote by Carroll O'Connor
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#15. I don't like the idea of killing people, either. I don't even like chemistry."
"What do you like?"
"Music. Numbers. Equations. They're not like words. They ... they don't get mixed up."
"If only you could talk to girls in equations."
There was a long silence, and then, eyes trained on the notch they'd created in the link, Wylan said, "Just girls?"
Jesper restrained a grin. "No. Not just girls." It really was a shame they were all probably going to die tonight. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Henry Walter Bates
#16. Their elegant shape, showy colours, and slow, sailing mode of flight, make them very attractive objects, and their numbers are so great that they form quite a feature in the physiognomy of the forest, compensating for the scarcity of flowers. #Quote by Henry Walter Bates
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Seymour Hersh
#17. Similarly, the press never tested many of the assumptions about WMDs. One of the great myths about the WMD issue is that everybody believed Iraq had them. Well, that's not true. There were a number of people in the intelligence community and the State Department who were skeptical, and many analysts in the Department of Energy were dubious about Iraq's nuclear capability. There were also people like Scott Ritter who were saying quite accurately what was going on. #Quote by Seymour Hersh
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Lord Kelvin
#18. I often say that when you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind. #Quote by Lord Kelvin
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Suzanne Enoch
#19. Another thought abruptly occurred to her. "You promised me some ex-girlfriends at the Everglades Club, and Patty showed up. So how many of those actresses and models you've left strewn in your wake will be around?"
His jaw twitched. "Some, probably. They can't resist seeing me in my polo uniform. But how many former girlfriends must one have before they can said to be strewn?"
"The exact number that you have," she retorted. She'd seen photos of him with them, on the Internet, in every national rag, and even the more reputable magazines. And she knew there'd only been maybe half a dozen of them, though with the intensive coverage, the numbers seemed much higher than that.
"Don't worry, love. I won't be paying attention to anyone but you, busily trapping thieves and killers and strewing them in your wake."
"Yeah, and don't you forget that. #Quote by Suzanne Enoch
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Salman Rushdie
#20. Yes, they will trample me underfoot, the numbers marching one two three, four hundred million five hundred six, reducing me to specks of voiceless dust, just as, in all good time, they will trample my son who is not my son, and his son who will not be his, and his who will not be his, until the thousand and first generation, until a thousand and one midnights have bestowed their terrible gifts and a thousand and one children have died, because it is the privilege and the curse of midnight's children to be both masters and victims of their times, to forsake privacy and be sucked into the annihilating whirlpool of the multitudes, and to be unable to live or die in peace. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by George Polya
#21. The elegance of a mathematical theorem is directly proportional to the number of independent ideas one can see in the theorem and inversely proportional to the effort it takes to see them. #Quote by George Polya
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Ben Kingsley
#22. I've met quite a number of people in my career, but I do have an extraordinary memory. And even though they may drift into the periphery of my memory, I can bring them right back when I need them. #Quote by Ben Kingsley
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Amy Adams
#23. I was the dork in high school who sang musical numbers up and down the hallways. #Quote by Amy Adams
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Israel Putnam
#24. The enemy advances and you tremble. They've better numbers, you say. Better weapons. Better training. But I do not fear, and neither should you. For what they have in material, they lack in conviction and care. But not us. We have discipline. We have order. And most importantly, we have passion. We believe! So maintain vigilance. Conserve your ammo. Ensure a proper line of sight. And above all else, men, do not fire until you see the whites of their eyes. #Quote by Israel Putnam
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Ben Shahn
#25. A work of art rests its merits in traditional qualities. It may constitute a remarkable feat in craftsmanship; it may be a searching study of psychological states; it may be a nostalgic glance backward; it may be any one of an infinite number of concepts, none of which may have any possible bearing upon its degree of newness. #Quote by Ben Shahn
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Voltaire
#26. A multitude of laws in a country is like a great number of physicians, a sign of weakness and malady. #Quote by Voltaire
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Vaclav Havel
#27. The United Nations would probably have to rest on two pillars: one constituted by an assembly of equal executive representatives of individual countries, resembling the present plenary, and the other consisting of a group elected directly by the globe's population in which the number of delegates representing individual nations would, thus, roughly correspond to the size of the nations. #Quote by Vaclav Havel
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Tom Heinsohn
#28. In every game, there's three teams out there. There's the two basketball teams and the team of officials. If the two teams are evenly matched, it can come down to number of possessions. If one out-of-bounds call goes the wrong way, that can be the difference. #Quote by Tom Heinsohn
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Leo Durocher
#29. In order to become a big-league manager you have to be in the right place at the right time. That's rule number one. #Quote by Leo Durocher
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Robert Casey
#30. I am fairly certain that my abortion position hurt me, because in a Democratic primary, where turnout is relatively low, liberal voters turn out in disproportionately large numbers and thus exercise a disproportionate influence on the outcome. #Quote by Robert Casey
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Richard Doll
#31. The risk of developing carcinoma of the lung increases steadily as the amount smoked increases. If the risk among non-smokers is taken as unity and the resulting ratios in the three age groups in which a large number of patients were interviewed (ages 45 to 74) are averaged, the relative risks become 6, 19, 26, 49, and 65 when the number of cigarettes smoked a day are 3, 10, 20, 35, and, say, 60-that is, the mid-points of each smoking group. In other words, on the admittedly speculative assumptions we have made, the risk seems to vary in approximately simple proportion with the amount smoked. #Quote by Richard Doll
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#32. I can think of a number of areas in New York where three acres of nuclear waste would make the neighborhood safer to walk around in than it is now, and better lit. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by George Orwell
#33. If there was hope, it must lie in the proles, because only there, in those swarming disregarded masses, eighty-five percent of the population of Oceania, could the force to destroy the Party ever be generated. The Party could not be overthrown from within. Its enemies, if it had any enemies, had no way of coming together or even of identifying one another. Even if the legendary Brotherhood existed, as just possibly it might, it was inconceivable that its members could ever assemble in larger numbers than twos and threes. Rebellion meant a look in the eyes, an inflection of the voice; at the most, an occasional whispered word. But the proles, if only they could somehow become conscious of their own strength, would have no need to conspire. They need only to rise up and shake themselves like a horse shaking off flies. If they chose they could blow the Party to pieces tomorrow morning. Surely sooner or later it must occur to them to do it. #Quote by George Orwell
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Ann Leckie
#34. The problem is knowing when what you are about to do will make a difference. I'm not only speaking of the small actions that, cumulatively, over time, or in great numbers, alter the course of events in ways too chaotic or subtle to trace ... if everyone were to consider all the possible consequences of all one's possible choices, no one would move a millimetre, or even dare to breathe for fear of the ultimate results. #Quote by Ann Leckie
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Susan Schneider
#35. I realise I'll have to acquire the ability to speak to my audience in between numbers. I've never had to do that. On the street I only focus on the keyboard settings for my next song, which takes a bit of time and a lot of concentration. So I'll have to develop that new skill, which gives me pause, because I'm afraid I'll say something stupid and disillusion people when they realise I'm an ordinary earthling - in fact, as ordinary as anyone else on this planet. #Quote by Susan Schneider
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Audre Lorde
#36. I would like to do another piece of fiction dealing with a number of issues: Lesbian parenting, the 1960's, and interracial relationships in the Lesbian and Gay community. #Quote by Audre Lorde
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Arthur Stanley Eddington
#37. I believe that there are 15,747,724,136,275,02,577,605,653,961,181,555,468,044,717,914,527,116,709,366,231,425,076,185,631,031,296 protons in the universe and the same number of electrons. #Quote by Arthur Stanley Eddington
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Suzy Kassem
#38. The number of ways you can live in one lifetime is limitless. So why limit yourself? The sky is NOT the limit. Beyond the universe is. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by John Guare
#39. And what would be great numbers in a Broadway show are now on stage of the New York City Ballet. #Quote by John Guare
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Henry Giroux
#40. The demise of higher education as a public good is also evident in light of the election of a number of right-wing politicians who are cutting funds for state universities and doing everything they can to turn them in training centers to fill the needs of corporations. This new and intense attack on both the social state and higher education completely undermines the public nature of what education is all about. #Quote by Henry Giroux
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by David Lange
#41. We cannot by ourselves reduce the number of nuclear weapons in the world, but we are doing what has to be done all over the world if those weapons are one day to be eliminated. We will not contemplate any circumstance in which their possession or threatened use is justified. We reject the secrecy and hypocrisy which surrounds the continuing refinement of the technology. #Quote by David Lange
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Morley Safer
#42. In his lifetime the great French impressionist painter Corot painted 2000 canvases. Of that number, 3000 are in the United States. #Quote by Morley Safer
Ccvii In Numbers quotes by Robin Neillands
#43. As time went by, matters improved; the armies, especially the British and French Armies, became better at staying alive while killing larger numbers of the enemy which, though hardly a matter for satisfaction in human terms, is what well-trained armies are supposed to do. #Quote by Robin Neillands
