Critical quotes by Sandra Steingraber
#1. Here in the United States, a study of nearly 700 women in California showed an increased risk of fetal death among babies whose mothers lived near crops when certain pesticides were sprayed. The largest risks were found among pregnant women exposed during the critical first trimester and among those who lived in the same square mile where pesticides were used. #Quote by Sandra Steingraber

Critical quotes by Mara Wilson
#3. 'Mrs. Doubtfire' is still a fun movie, and it's still fun to watch, but it is hard to watch myself sometimes. I get very critical. And people will say, 'Mara, you were five.' And I'm like, 'Yeah, but I still should have known better!' I'm a lifelong perfectionist, what can I say? #Quote by Mara Wilson
Critical quotes by Pope Francis

Critical quotes by Sam Kean

Critical quotes by Josh Earnest
#6. My start in politics was watching my parents go to the polls on election day. It reminded me that being an active, engaged citizen and voter is critical to the success of our democracy. #Quote by Josh Earnest
Critical quotes by Noam Shpancer
#7. Here we have the first lesson about the nature of memory: what you wish to forget, you may not be able to. What seems to have died, perhaps is just asleep. On the other hand, sometimes you wish to remember something, and there it stands at the doorway of your consciousness, and refuses to come in. You know you know something, the name of some useless celebrity, perhaps, and yet you cannot fish that name out of your inner aquarium. And this illustrates a critical feature of memory, which resembles, as it turns out, most of the processes in the internal realm: the same cause will regularly yield different, even opposite effects. #Quote by Noam Shpancer
Critical quotes by Birgit Brander Rasmussen
#8. In other words, is "critical whiteness studies" the Trojan horse through which the study and perspective of whites will be recentered in studies of race and ethnicity?1 #Quote by Birgit Brander Rasmussen
Critical quotes by Georges Doriot
#9. There is always a critical job to be done. There is a sales door to be opened, a credit line to be established, a new important employee to be found, or a business technique to be learned. The venture investor must always be on call to advise, to persuade, to dissuade, to encourage, but always to help build. Then venture capital becomes true creative capital - creating growth for the company and financial success for the investing organization #Quote by Georges Doriot
Critical quotes by R.C. Sproul
#10. Just as the Word of God is used in conversion, so it is a critical instrument in our spiritual growth. By immersing ourselves in the Word of God, we begin to gain the mind of Christ and learn what discipleship is.
In #Quote by R.C. Sproul
Critical quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#11. The willingness to be self-critical in England is much greater than the willingness to be self-critical in America. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Critical quotes by David Paul Kirkpatrick
#12. Sometimes, it's important to turn off the noise from the outside world. Sometimes, it's critical to stop the banter even within oneself. Intentional solitude and quiet can make us strong for tomorrow. #Quote by David Paul Kirkpatrick
Critical quotes by Karl Marx
#13. For as soon as the distribution of labour comes into being, each man has a particular, exclusive sphere of activity, which is forced upon him and from which he cannot escape. He is a hunter, a fisherman, a herdsman, or a critical critic, and must remain so if he does not want to lose his means of livelihood; while in communist society, where nobody has one exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch he wishes, society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticise after dinner, just as I have a mind, without ever becoming hunter, fisherman, herdsman or critic. #Quote by Karl Marx
Critical quotes by R.C. Sproul
#14. We need to learn to "read with a comb" - that is, developing a value system that gives us the ability to be critical of what we study. Here the word critical does not mean approaching our studies with a negative attitude. It means being cautious and discerning. #Quote by R.C. Sproul
Critical quotes by Azar Nafisi
#15. Fiction was not a panacea, but it did offer us a critical way of appraising and grasping the world - not just our world but that other world that had become the object of our desires. #Quote by Azar Nafisi
Critical quotes by Valerie Porr
#16. People with BPD tend to judge themselves and others in extreme ways. They will often use excessively positive terms, idealizing or glorifying, or excessively negative terms, demonizing or devaluing themselves or others. They look at themselves with harsh and critical negative self-judgments that increase their sense of shame. #Quote by Valerie Porr
Critical quotes by Scott Bakula
#17. In the fantasy, sci-fi world, the fans are so discerning and they're so tough and they're so intelligent, and they're so critical. #Quote by Scott Bakula

Critical quotes by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk

Critical quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft
#20. Only that education deserves emphatically to be termed cultivation of the mind which teaches young people how to begin to think. #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft
Critical quotes by Nick Cave
#21. It's very intuitive, the way that I approach my work. I only buy something that has a pulse. I may not know how I'm going to use it, but I know it has a pulse and it has multiple readings - if I shift it one way or another, it can be read this way or it can be read that way, but both readings are critical and very much ground the work. #Quote by Nick Cave
Critical quotes by Denham Sutcliffe
#22. But it seems to me inevitable that any person who gives thoughtful and imaginative attention to literature must be awakened in his sensibilities, enlarged in his sympathies, sharpened in his critical faculties. #Quote by Denham Sutcliffe
Critical quotes by Richard Rogers
#23. I think greed is a critical problem - the gap between the poor and the rich. The gap between the top 10 percent and the bottom 10 percent. #Quote by Richard Rogers
Critical quotes by Kat Banyard
#24. individuals have their flesh cut and pulled, surgery companies proclaim it as an empowering choice, and the stifling cultural ideals about women's appearance are left unscathed #Quote by Kat Banyard
Critical quotes by Marvin Perry
#25. The New Testament was not written by historians with the critical spirit of a Thucydides or a Polybius, but by men moved by the fervor of faith. Under these circumstances, it is understandable that it contains discrepancies, some non historical legends, and polemics. #Quote by Marvin Perry
Critical quotes by Richard Rohr
#26. If this inner and critical voice has kept you safe for many years as your inner voice of authority, you may end up not being able to hear the real voice of God. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Critical quotes by Stanley Williams
#27. In choosing not to be a beast, I discovered my humanity. I became autodidactic, self-educated - a critical thinker. #Quote by Stanley Williams
Critical quotes by Jim C. Walton
#28. There is critical mass with high-speed Internet connections, so video is a good user experience. And that means there can be critical mass for advertisers. #Quote by Jim C. Walton
Critical quotes by Gregory C. Warner
#29. Love is a condition. There are many circumstances in life that can affect this condition. So it falls on you and I to insulate love from the things that would cause it harm. We, the protectors of love, are responsible if the condition of our love becomes critical. Yes, broken fences can be mended, but love on life support should be left to die. So our earthly desire should be to strengthen the condition of love daily. #Quote by Gregory C. Warner
Critical quotes by William J. Brennan
#30. While the machinery of law enforcement and indeed the nature of crime itself have changed dramatically since the Fourth Amendment became part of the Nation's fundamental law in 1791, what the Framers understood then remains true today - that the task of combating crime and convicting the guilty will in every era seem of such critical and pressing concern that we may be lured by the temptations of expediency into forsaking our commitment to protecting individual liberty and privacy. #Quote by William J. Brennan
Critical quotes by Bobby Darnell
#31. An opinion is a poor substitute for understanding. #Quote by Bobby Darnell
Critical quotes by Leon Panetta
#32. An aggressor nation or extremist group could gain control of critical switches and derail passenger trains, or trains loaded with lethal chemicals. #Quote by Leon Panetta
Critical quotes by Edward Whitacre, Jr.
#33. I am honored to be able to serve GM at this critical juncture and take part in its reinvention. #Quote by Edward Whitacre, Jr.
Critical quotes by Jessica Jackley
#34. As all entrepreneurs know, you live and die by your ability to prioritize. You must focus on the most important, mission-critical tasks each day and night, and then share, delegate, delay or skip the rest. #Quote by Jessica Jackley
Critical quotes by Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
#35. Why are some countries able, despite their very real and serious problems, to press ahead along the road to reconciliation, recovery, and redevelopment while others cannot? These are critical questions for Africa, and their answers are complex and not always clear. Leadership is crucial, of course. Kagame was a strong leader–decisive, focused, disciplined, and honest–and he remains so today. I believe that sometimes people's characters are molded by their environment. Angola, like Liberia, like Sierra Leone, is resource-rich, a natural blessing that sometimes has the sad effect of diminishing the human drive for self-sufficiency, the ability and determination to maximize that which one has. Kagame had nothing. He grew up in a refugee camp, equipped with only his own strength of will and determination to create a better life for himself and his countrymen. #Quote by Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
Critical quotes by Pearl Zhu
#36. Observation is a critical activity in the innovation process to understand the context of an issue from a human perspective. #Quote by Pearl Zhu
Critical quotes by Rebecca MacKinnon
#37. The critical question is: How do we ensure that the Internet develops in a way that is compatible with democracy? #Quote by Rebecca MacKinnon
Critical quotes by Salvador Dali
#38. Paranoiac-critical activity makes the world of delirium pass onto the plane of reality ... #Quote by Salvador Dali
Critical quotes by Angela Thirkell
#39. It is rather depressing to think that one will still be oneself when one is dead, but I dare say one won't be so critical then. #Quote by Angela Thirkell
Critical quotes by Dan Brown
#40. As we get closer to critical hour, we will make critical decisions. #Quote by Dan Brown
Critical quotes by Anita Sarkeesian
#41. We can be critical of the things that we love. That is possible. #Quote by Anita Sarkeesian
Critical quotes by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
#42. Crime does not decrease in proportion to the severest punishment. #Quote by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Critical quotes by Marion Nestle
#43. I would require every producer of food to follow and have enforced a standard safety plan. We know how to produce safe food. It has a horrible name; it's called HACCP - Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point - and this was a food safety system that was developed for NASA so that astronauts wouldn't get sick in outer space. If you just think about what it might be like to have food poison under conditions of zero gravity, you don't even want to think about it. #Quote by Marion Nestle
Critical quotes by Bob Woodward
#44. For those of you who were critical that nobody paid enough attention to the generals at the beginning of the war, has it occurred to you that you don't want to make that mistake at the end of the war?
Secretary Robert Gates #Quote by Bob Woodward
Critical quotes by Abdallah II Of Jordan
#45. No matter what's happening in the Middle East - the Arab Spring, et cetera, the economic challenges, high rates of unemployment - the emotional, critical issue is always the Israeli-Palestinian one. #Quote by Abdallah II Of Jordan
Critical quotes by Albert Einstein
#46. What can the schools do to defend democracy? Should they preach a specific political doctrine? I believe they should not. If they are able to teach young people to have a critical mind and a socially oriented attitude, they will have done all that is necessary. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Critical quotes by Bruce Springsteen
#47. There is a real patriotism underneath the best of my music but it is a critical, questioning and often angry patriotism. #Quote by Bruce Springsteen
Critical quotes by Donald Rumsfeld
#48. It isn't making mistakes that's critical; it's correcting them and getting on with the principal task. #Quote by Donald Rumsfeld
Critical quotes by Susan Brooks
#49. A budget matters to people who worry about protecting and saving critical programs like Medicare and Social Security. A budget matters to younger workers who fear that more and more money will be taken from their paychecks to fund another generation's spending spree. #Quote by Susan Brooks
Critical quotes by Ravi Zacharias
#50. Philosophically, you can believe anything, so long as you do not claim it to be true. Morally, you can practice anything, so long as you do not claim that it is a "better" way. Religiously, you can hold to anything, so long as you do not bring Jesus Christ into it. If a spiritual idea is eastern, it is granted critical immunity; if western, it is thoroughly criticized. Thus, a journalist can walk into a church and mock its carryings on, but he or she dare not do the same if the ceremony is from the eastern fold. Such is the mood at the end of the twentieth century. #Quote by Ravi Zacharias
Critical quotes by Lemony Snicket
#51. There was still plenty of water in the basement, and I felt it soaking me from the knees on down. If someone wanted to torture me until I told them a critical piece of information, all they would have to do is get my socks wet. It feels terrible. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Critical quotes by Dean Karnazes
#52. Running back-to-back races requires a certain tactical prudence. Going too hard in any one race might jeopardize your performance in another. Maintaining proper hydration and caloric equilibrium also becomes increasingly critical. #Quote by Dean Karnazes
Critical quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#53. It is not enough for the Negroes to declare that color-prejudice is the sole cause of their social condition, nor for the white South to reply that their social condition is the main cause of prejudice. They both act as reciprocal cause and effect, and a change in neither alone will bring the desired effect. Both must change, or neither can improve to any great extent."(p.88) ... "Only by a union of intelligence and sympathy across the color-line in this critical period of the Republic shall justice and right triumph, #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
Critical quotes by Daniel Boulud
#54. For me, good service is efficient and discreet; it's that critical balance. As soon as the client sits down, the communication flow has to start. Customers need to feel that the waiters are supervised - that there's a system in place. #Quote by Daniel Boulud
Critical quotes by Harold Bloom
#55. School of Resentment is a term coined by critic Harold Bloom to describe related schools of literary criticism which have gained prominence in academia since the 1970s and which Bloom contends are preoccupied with political and social activism at the expense of aesthetic values.[1]
Broadly, Bloom terms "Schools of Resentment" approaches associated with Marxist critical theory, including African American studies, Marxist literary criticism, New Historicist criticism, feminist criticism, and poststructuralism - specifically as promoted by Jacques Lacan, Jacques Derrida and Michel Foucault. The School of Resentment is usually defined as all scholars who wish to enlarge the Western canon by adding to it more works by authors from minority groups without regard to aesthetic merit and/or influence over time, or those who argue that some works commonly thought canonical promote sexist, racist or otherwise biased values and should therefore be removed from the canon. Bloom contends that the School of Resentment threatens the nature of the canon itself and may lead to its eventual demise. Philosopher Richard Rorty[2] agreed that Bloom is at least partly accurate in describing the School of Resentment, writing that those identified by Bloom do in fact routinely use "subversive, oppositional discourse" to attack the canon specifically and Western culture in general. #Quote by Harold Bloom
Critical quotes by Edward Sapir
#56. National languages are all huge systems of vested interests which sullenly resist critical inquiry. #Quote by Edward Sapir
Critical quotes by Joe Scarborough
#57. If Washington continues to fumble issues like taking care of the debt, getting the troops home, and rebuilding our economy, my wife and I may sit down and say, 'These are critical things and maybe we need to get back in the ball.' #Quote by Joe Scarborough
Critical quotes by Anonymous
#58. The most critical are not the successful, nor the complete failures, but those who might have achieved something of worth, save for small but crucial faults within themselves, for they can seldom bear the thought of how close they came to greatness. #Quote by Anonymous
Critical quotes by Iain Macleod Higgins
#59. one might argue that the Mandeville author's original deception was not a simple trick for its own sake, but rather that it allowed him the freedom to speak his mind in a society that did not encourage such expression: to critique the moral state of his fellow Christians through an unusually open-minded presentation of the sectarian Christian and non-Christian world beyond Latin Christendom,2 an open-mindedness extended to nearly every group except the Jews and some nomads like the Bedouins. If so, the deception can be considered akin to the sort of literary device used by his near contemporary, William Langland, who, to obtain similar critical freedom, couched his impassioned critique of Christendom in an allegorical dream vision called Piers Plowman (five of whose some fifty surviving copies are bound with TBJM, suggesting that they have concerns in common).3 #Quote by Iain Macleod Higgins
Critical quotes by T. S. Eliot
#60. James's critical genius comes out most tellingly in his mastery over, his baffling escape from, Ideas; a mastery and an escape which are perhaps the last test of a superior intelligence. He had a mind so fine that no idea could violate it. [ ... ] In England, ideas run wild and pasture on the emotions; instead of thinking with our feelings (a very different thing) we corrupt our feelings with ideas; we produce the public, the political, the emotional idea, evading sensation and thought. [ ... ] James in his novels is like the best French critics in maintaining a point of view, a view-point untouched by the parasite idea. He is the most intelligent man of his generation.
(Little Review, 1918) #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Critical quotes by Tom Kristensen
#61. The trick at Le Mans is to get the car 'in the window.' Everything is critical: the tyre pressure, the brake temperature, and that means you have to push the car a lot to get it into the window - it's about getting everything to work right and getting the car to flow through the corners. #Quote by Tom Kristensen
Critical quotes by Bruno Dumont
#62. To retain his dignity, an artist must live in opposition. He must be critical of his country. If not, then he is worthless. #Quote by Bruno Dumont
Critical quotes by David Levine
#63. I might want to be critical, but I don't wish to be destructive. #Quote by David Levine
Critical quotes by Karl Popper
#64. The open society is one in which men have learned to be to some extent critical of taboos, and to base decisions on the authority of their own intelligence. #Quote by Karl Popper
Critical quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#65. May we ever watch over one another, assisting in times of need. Let us not be critical and judgmental, but let us be tolerant, ever emulating the Savior's example of loving-kindness. In that vein, may we willingly serve one another. May we pray for the inspiration to know of the needs of those around us, and then may we go forward and provide assistance. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Critical quotes by Misha Glenny
#66. In humanity's relentless drive for convenience and economic growth, we have developed a dangerous level of dependency on networked systems in a very short space of time: in less than two decades, huge parts of the so-called 'critical national infrastructure' (CNI in geekish) in most countries have come under the control of ever more complex computer systems. #Quote by Misha Glenny
Critical quotes by Vishwas Chavan
#67. Accountability and self-responsibility are critical to our success in personal, professional and public life. However, we often look for those character traits in others, rather than inculcating them in ourselves. #Quote by Vishwas Chavan
Critical quotes by Terry Pratchett
#68. Nanny Ogg gave this the same consideration as would a nuclear physicist who'd just been told that someone was banging two bits of sub-critical uranium together to keep warm. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Critical quotes by Carol Shields
#69. This was during a period in my reading life when I was given to understand that "relating" to the fictional characters or situation was of prime importance, and so I read, I'm sorry to say, narrowly, frugally, unadventurously, as though I had no interest in the greater world and no desire to experience other cycles of thinking and being. This idea of "relating", or identifying, was encouraged by my teachers and even, I believe, by the critical theories of the day. Naive as it may sound, one read fiction in order to confirm the reality of one's experience. #Quote by Carol Shields
Critical quotes by Henry Petroski
#70. What is commonly overlooked in using the computer is the fact that the central goal of design is still to obviate failure, and thus it is critical to identify exactly how a structure may fail. The computer cannot do this by itself ... #Quote by Henry Petroski
Critical quotes by Emily Mortimer
#71. So far I haven't really been prominent enough to get critical attention focused on me. So, of course, I fully expect bad reviews, but I will be wracked with misery as a result. #Quote by Emily Mortimer
Critical quotes by Steve Allen
#72. Just as with cars, it's critical to know the fuel efficiency of black holes. #Quote by Steve Allen
Critical quotes by Michael Eric Dyson
#73. I think public intellectuals have a responsibility - to be self-critical on the one hand, to do serious, nuanced work rigorously executed; but to also be able to get off those perches and out of those ivory towers and speak to the real people who make decisions; to speak truth to power and the powerless with lucidity and eloquence. #Quote by Michael Eric Dyson
Critical quotes by Eric S. Raymond
#74. A critical factor in its success was that the X developers were willing to give the sources away for free in accordance with the hacker ethic, and able to distribute them over the Internet. #Quote by Eric S. Raymond
Critical quotes by Joshua Cohen
#75. It was only in Palo Alto that I searched "Rachav Binder" and "Rach Binder," got an undousable flame of her defense of an article of mine critical of the Mormon Church's databasing of Holocaust victims in order to speed their posthumous conversions #Quote by Joshua Cohen
Critical quotes by John Sutherland
#76. The American critic Dale Peck, author of Hatchet Jobs (2004), argues that reviewing finds its true character in critical GBH such as Fischer's [review of Martin Amis's Yellow Dog]. It represents a return to the prehistoric origins of reviewing in Zoilism - a kind of pelting of pretentious literature with dung, lest the writers get above themselves; it is to the novelist what the gown of humiliation was to the Roman politician - a salutary ordeal. Less grandly, bad reviews are fun, so long as you are not the author. There is, it must be admitted, a kind of furtive blood sport pleasure in seeing a novelist suffer. You read on. Whereas most of us stop reading at the first use of the word 'splendid' or 'marvellous' in a review. #Quote by John Sutherland
Critical quotes by Richard Plass
#77. Sadly, some have had a very different experience in community. Rather than a transformation of soul, they have experienced a deformation of soul. They entered a community hoping to find a home of unconditional love. What they found was a self-righteous, self-protective, self-promoting reality. If this has been your experience, we are truly sorry. But the fact that communities often fail to live into what the gospel makes possible is no reason to reject community. The emergence of our true self depends on the community life we live in. It is critical that we all find a good church so that our true self can flourish. #Quote by Richard Plass
Critical quotes by Theodor W. Adorno
#78. In so far as the culture industry arouses a feeling of well-being that the world is precisely in that order suggested by the culture industry, the substitute gratification which it prepares for human beings cheats them out of the same happiness which it deceitfully projects. #Quote by Theodor W. Adorno
Critical quotes by Craig Venter
#79. In a biological system, the software builds its own hardware, but design is critical, and if you start with digital information, it has to be really accurate. #Quote by Craig Venter
Critical quotes by Henri Nouwen
#80. You are a Christian only so long as you constantly pose critical questions to the society you live in, so long as you stay unsatisfied with the status quo, and keep saying that a new world is yet to come. #Quote by Henri Nouwen
Critical quotes by John Berger
#81. Post-modernism has cut off the present from all futures. The daily media add to this by cutting off the past. Which means that critical opinion is often orphaned in the present. #Quote by John Berger
Critical quotes by J.R.Nyquist
#82. The problem, then, is not East versus West. The problem is that the elites in nearly every country have become rotten and socialist. As Bukovsky wrote in his book, "Even the ageless James Bond does not fight the KGB, but is most frequently in an alliance with the KGB, against some mythical super-corporation headed, as a rule, by a lunatic capitalist."
Bukovsky's book, "Judgment in Moscow," will be released in English in May. What does he say happened toward the supposed end of the Cold War? Bukovsky wrote, "This was a full debacle, a total surrender of its positions by the West at the most critical moment of our history. #Quote by J.R.Nyquist
Critical quotes by Vladimir Odoevsky
#83. At that shameful stage in the development of our criticism, literary abuse would overstep all limits of decorum; literature itself was a totally extraneous matter in critical articles: they were pure invective, a vulgar battle of vulgar jokes, double-entendres, the most vicious calumnies and offensive constructions. It goes without saying, that in this inglorious battle, the only winners were those who had nothing to lose as far as their good name was concerned. My friends and I were totally deluded. We imagined ourselves engaged in the subtle philosophical disputes of the portico or the academy, or at least the drawing room. In actual fact we were slumming it. #Quote by Vladimir Odoevsky
Critical quotes by Stephen King
#84. Teaching, even when it was just subbing, was like having a pair of jumper cables attached to some critical part of your brain. It was good that the kids could draw power from that part, but there was precious little left over. Many #Quote by Stephen King
Critical quotes by Chris Rapley
#85. Although reducing human emissions to the atmosphere is undoubtedly of critical importance, as are any and all measures to reduce the human environmental "footprint", the truth is that the contribution of each individual cannot be reduced to zero ... if we believe that the size of the human "footprint" is a serious problem (and there is much evidence for this) then a rational view would be that along with a raft of measures to reduce the footprint per person, the issue of population management must be addressed #Quote by Chris Rapley
Critical quotes by Ellen Goodman
#86. Even if every program were educational and every advertisement bore the seal of approval of the American Dental Association, we would still have a critical problem. It's not just the programs but the act of watching television hour after hour after hour that's destructive. #Quote by Ellen Goodman
Critical quotes by Brendon Burchard
#87. Challenge is the pathway to engagement and progress in our lives. But not all challenges are created equal. Some challenges make us feel alive, engaged, connected, and fulfilled. Others simply overwhelm us. Knowing the difference as you set bigger and bolder challenges for yourself is critical to your sanity, success, and satisfaction. #Quote by Brendon Burchard
Critical quotes by Howard Zinn
#88. There is no act too small, no act too bold. The history of social change is the history of millions of actions, small and large, coming together at critical points to create a power that governments cannot suppress. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Critical quotes by William Shakespeare
#89. O, gentle lady, do not put me to't,/ For I am nothing, if not critical. #Quote by William Shakespeare

#91. In the aftermath of September 11th, it is critical to secure our borders. #Quote by Bobby Jindal
Critical quotes by Karl Popper
#92. The scientific tradition is distinguished from the pre-scientific tradition by having two layers. Like the latter, it passes on its theories; but it also passes on a critical attitude towards them. #Quote by Karl Popper
Critical quotes by Michio Kaku
#93. When the Ramanujan function is generalized, the number 24 is replaced by the number 8. Thus the critical number for the superstring is 8 + 2, or 10. This is the origin of the tenth dimension. The string vibrates in ten dimensions because it requires these generalized Ramanujan functions in order to remain self-consistent. In other words, physicists have not the slightest understanding of why ten and 26 dimensions are singled out as the dimension of the string. It's as though there is some kind of deep numerology being manifested in these functions that no one understands. It is precisely these magic numbers appearing in the elliptic modular function that determines the dimension of space-time to be ten. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Critical quotes by Robert Pozen
#94. The classic problem as an entrepreneur is that they have a hard time delegating. But that's really crazy. Recruiting other executives is critical, so is dealing with customers and dealing with regulators. Those are functions that only the top founders can do. #Quote by Robert Pozen
Critical quotes by Dick Durbin
#95. Justice [Sandra Day] O'Connor has been the critical decisive vote on many issues that go to the heart of who we are as a nation. #Quote by Dick Durbin
Critical quotes by Michael Greger
#96. I think of veganism humbly and holistically. It's about taking personal responsibility in a world so full of needless suffering. It's challenging one's self to open one's eyes and question society's assumptions and habits. It's about critical thinking and compassion and how we would like to see the world evolve. #Quote by Michael Greger
Critical quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#97. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness and the happiness of others. #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Critical quotes by Robert G. Allen
#98. The only power that the critical voice has is the power that you give it. #Quote by Robert G. Allen
Critical quotes by Elaine L. Jack
#99. Baptism is the critical priesthood ordinance which opens the door to eternal life for each one of us. It is the benchmark from which we count our many blessings because this is when our accountability to follow Jesus Christ and live his Gospel begins. #Quote by Elaine L. Jack
Critical quotes by Paul Davis
#100. One of the tests for positive thinking, for constructive thinking, is to test one's idle moments. At those times, is one's mind turning over negative critical thoughts; fighting battles that have been won or lost; rehashing senseless arguments? If so, then one is out of tune. But if one is thinking how to improve a situation or a procedure, how to gain a worthwhile objective, then one is on the constructive side of life. #Quote by Paul Davis
Critical quotes by Liv Tyler
#101. I love my dad, although I'm definitely critical of him sometimes, like when his pants are too tight. But I love him so much and I try to be really supportive of him. #Quote by Liv Tyler
Critical quotes by Aurora Guerrero
#102. A theatrical on a tight budget really only becomes about generating critical reviews for you and your film, not revenue. #Quote by Aurora Guerrero
Critical quotes by Jeff Greenfield
#103. When Al Gore picked Joe Lieberman, it was a clear declaration of independence from President Clinton; no Democrat had been more critical of Clinton's misconduct. #Quote by Jeff Greenfield
Critical quotes by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
#104. Imagination is absolutely critical to the quality of our lives. Our imagination enables us to leave our routine everyday existence by fantasizing about travel, food, sex, falling in love, or having the last word - all the things that make life interesting. Imagination gives us the opportunity to envision new possibilities - it is an essential launchpad for making our hopes come true. It fires our creativity, relieves our boredom, alleviates our pain, enhances our pleasure, and enriches our most intimate relationships. #Quote by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
Critical quotes by Richard Dawkins
#105. Many of us saw religion as harmless nonsense. Beliefs might lack all supporting evidence but, we thought, if people needed a crutch for consolation, where's the harm? September 11th changed all that. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Critical quotes by Adrienne Rich
#106. Responsibility to yourself means refusing to let others do your thinking, talking, and naming for you; it means learning to respect and use your own brains and instincts; hence, grappling with hard work. #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Critical quotes by E. O. Wilson
#107. I had in mind a message, although I hope it doesn't intrude too badly, persuading Americans, and especially Southerners, of the critical importance of land and our vanishing natural environment and wildlife. #Quote by E. O. Wilson
Critical quotes by L. Ron Hubbard
#108. A suppressing person isn't critical. A suppressing person is a person who denies the rights of others. #Quote by L. Ron Hubbard
Critical quotes by Andrew Roberts
#109. One of the chief values reading history, this is the author, is its capacity to "provoke renegade thoughts". #Quote by Andrew Roberts
Critical quotes by Dmitry Merezhkovsky
#110. Before us is mighty, so to speak, transformative and preparatory work. From a period which is creative, immediate and elemental, we must proceed to a period which is critical, conscious and cultural. These are the two worlds between which exists the entire abyss. The contemporary generation has the misfortune of being born between these two worlds, before this abyss. Herein is explained its frailty, diseased anxiety, hungry search for new ideals and a certain fateful impotency in all of its efforts. The best youth and vigor of talent is not expended on vital creativity but on an internal destructiveness and struggle with the past, on the passage across the abyss to that land, to that shore, to the frontiers of a free and divine idealism. How many people are perishing in this passage or are losing their strength irrevocably!...

Critical quotes by Robert M. Price
#111. The lesson of Left Behind is a warning to repent the sin of critical thinking, which the fundamentalist, eager for people to embrace the Gospel of irrational nonsense, equates with intellectual pride. #Quote by Robert M. Price
Critical quotes by Paulo Freire
#112. One of the basic questions that we need to look at is how to convert merely rebellious attitudes into revolutionary ones in the process of the radical transformation of society. Merely rebellious attitudes or actions are insufficient, though they are an indispensable response to legitimate anger. It is necessary to go beyond rebellious attitudes to a more radically critical and revolutionary position, which is in fact a position not simply of denouncing injustice but of announcing a new utopia. Transformation of the world implies a dialectic between the two actions: denouncing the process of dehumanization and announcing the dream of a new society. On the basis of this knowledge, namely, "to change things is difficult but possible," we can plan our political-pedagogical strategy. #Quote by Paulo Freire
Critical quotes by Tom Sachs
#113. I want labor to be the point, because everything in our lives is miraculously made with no idea of how it's done. As an active and critical consumer, and as someone who has attempted to make the flawless and failed, I wanted a transparency of construction here. If we know how it is made and how it falls apart, we will know how to rebuild it. #Quote by Tom Sachs
Critical quotes by Sue Gardner
#114. Everybody's saying, be skeptical of Wikipedia. That is true. They should also be skeptical of everything. We should all be critical consumers of the media. #Quote by Sue Gardner
Critical quotes by Daniel L. Migliore
#115. The light of revelation does not descend on us perpendicularly from above; it comes through worldly media by the power of God's Spirit, who enlists our participation in the process of responsible interpretation and critical appropriation. #Quote by Daniel L. Migliore
Critical quotes by Glennon Doyle Melton
#116. Be critical, fine, that's fair. But don't be cruel. Every damn one of us knows the difference.

Critical quotes by Angelica Hopes
#117. In order to know something, you must go back to the source. You have to be critical and wise what are the original roots and not the corrupted outcome but in order to know the truth, you have to examine all angles, all sides, all possible traces of deception, the fortress of protection of hidden elements camouflaged with what it seemed overlapping masks along a river of clear or dirty water. The water flows in varying speed depending on the atmospheric factors and men's interventions in using the flowing water however, the stone remains.

Think of the truth: many would hide it, distort it, change it, bury it, or even destroy it but the uncorrupted truth, the unparalleled truth shall always come out.

How do you seek the truth?

When you seek for the truth, are you guided with an honest heart?

Why do you seek the truth?

Or, are you among those folks who prefer to hide or bury the truth thinking that the majority won't find it out?

If and when the truth comes out, are you among those persons who will target sacrificial lambs for scapegoats?

It is wise to remember that the truth however hidden shall eventually come out.

A Cameroonian proverb says, "Water always finds a way out."

The same thing I can say about the truth:
the truth however hidden shall eventually come out.

The water flows, the stones remain.
The lies flow, the truth remains.

The truth th #Quote by Angelica Hopes
Critical quotes by Lia Habel
#118. What the hell was that?!" Tom asked, fighting his way to his feet.
"That..was not normal," Bram said, gripping the wheel like he was afraid to let go.
"I modified the engine somewhat," Renfield confessed. That grin started sneaking back onto his face.
"Modifications?" Gram asked. He slowly released his death grip on the steering wheel and turned around to look at Ren. "What modifications?"
"Modification." Ren really stressed the shun at the end of the word. "I just removed the governor. I told you some parts needed to come out. You were there when I did it!"
"The what?" I asked.
Bram stared at Renfield, his expression going completely slack. "You did what? I didn't see you...You did what?"
"What's a governor?"
"You didn't," Tom said, voice filled with awe. "You are not telling me that you left a piece of the engine behind on the ground. "
Renfield sighed and turned to address me, waving a hand casually. "The governor, on an airship engine, caps the maximum speed the engine can achieve. So,by taking the governor off, I've allowed us to go much faster."
"And then we'll blow up!" Bram yelled. "Because you took a safety valve off!"
"You've turned the ship into a freaking death trap!" Tom shouted.
"It isn't critical. We just have to be mindful of the engine pressure ourselves, that's all! Trust me, she can take it! #Quote by Lia Habel
Critical quotes by Alice Minium
#119. I want to write a thinkpiece about what you did to me. I want to write a critical analysis about the way you put your hands to my throat, the way you threw me against the partition wall. I want to extract a dose of worldly wisdom for all women to sap the power from that pain and into abstraction so we can all live again; I want what you did to be a statistic, I want you to be a memory, I don't want you to be those hands on my throat. #Quote by Alice Minium

Critical quotes by Ibn Al-Haytham
#121. The seeker after truth is not one who studies the writings of the ancients and, following his natural disposition, puts his trust in them," the first scientist wrote, "but rather the one who suspects his faith in them and questions what he gathers from them, the one who submits to argument and demonstration and not the sayings of human beings whose nature is fraught with all kinds of imperfection and deficiency. Thus the duty of the man who investigates the writings of scientists, if learning the truth is his goal, is to make himself an enemy of all that he reads, and, applying his mind to the core and margins of of its content, attack it from every side. he should also suspect himself as he performs his critical examination of it, so that he may avoid falling into either prejudice or leniency. #Quote by Ibn Al-Haytham
Critical quotes by Alister E. McGrath
#122. The God Delusion is a rather disorganized collage of arguments and pastiche of assertions which cannot be said to advance those ideas or enhance their critical edge, but rather harnesses them in the service of the advocacy of atheism. #Quote by Alister E. McGrath
Critical quotes by Raymond Chandler
#123. Writers who get written about become self-conscious. They develop a regrettable habit of looking at themselves through the eyes of other people. They are no longer alone, they have an investment in critical praise, and they think they must protect it. This leads to a diffusion of effort. The writer watches himself as he works. He grows more subtle and he pays for it by loss of organic dash. #Quote by Raymond Chandler
Critical quotes by William L. McKnight
#124. Management that is destructively critical when mistakes are made kills initiative. And it's essential that we have many people with initiative if we are to continue to grow. #Quote by William L. McKnight
Critical quotes by Bill Nye

Critical quotes by Kathy Tyers
#126. Plainly, the strength of a hundred-odd Jedi couldn't keep the galaxy from falling to this menace. One misstep--at one critical moment, by one pivotal person--could doom everyone they'd sworn to protect. No military force could stop this invasion, because it was a spiritual battle. And if one pivotal person fell to the dark side--or even used the ravishing, terrifying power of light in a wrong way--then this time, everything they knew might slide into stifling darkness.'

Critical quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan

Critical quotes by Joan Fontcuberta
#128. The heart [of my work], the quintessential, remains the questioning of photographic truth. Be careful, be critical, doubt, and filter the information you receive. #Quote by Joan Fontcuberta
Critical quotes by Nicholas Royle
#129. Increasingly, those who used to teach and write critical or theoretical texts are writing fiction, poetry and so on; and kinds of texts are being produced that call for budding readers rather different from those who studied literature in the past. #Quote by Nicholas Royle
Critical quotes by Mary Street Alinder
#130. Edward counseled that a photograph of consequence could be made from just about anything. Subject matter, in itself, was not critical. The understanding of the photographer was. #Quote by Mary Street Alinder
Critical quotes by Will Self
#131. My novels tend to come about from a fusion of two big ideas, creating a critical mass that then fissions, throwing off hundreds of other particles, riffs, tropes and characters. #Quote by Will Self
Critical quotes by Jack Henry Abbott
#132. I cannot be critical of an infant whose only possible source of nourishment can be found in the dugs of a wolf. #Quote by Jack Henry Abbott
Critical quotes by Italo Calvino
#133. 1 )Classics are books which, the more we think we know them through hearsay, the more original, unexpected, and innovative we find them when we actually read them.
2)A classic is a work which constantly generates a pulviscular cloud of critical discourse around it, but which always shakes the particles off. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Critical quotes by Ernst Junger
#134. Although I am an anarch, I am not anti-authoritarian. Quite the opposite: I need authority, although I do not believe in it. My critical faculties are sharpened by the absence of the credibility that I ask for. As a historian, I know what can be offered. #Quote by Ernst Junger
Critical quotes by David Halberstam
#135. Nixon under pressure turned only to reporters from publications already favorable to him; Kennedy, in trouble, turned to those most critical and dubious of him, and if anything tended to take those already for him a bit for granted. #Quote by David Halberstam
Critical quotes by Glenn Beck
#136. After the signing of the Constitution, Benjamin Franklin was asked by a woman on the street, "What have you given us, sir?" Franklin Responded, "A Republic, if you can keep it."
A critical moment in history has come; our Republic is in jeopardy. Can we keep it?
If the answer to that question, as I fear, is "no," then we have no one to blame but ourselves. #Quote by Glenn Beck
Critical quotes by Stephen Harper
#137. We have to remember we're in a global economy. The purpose of fiscal stimulus is not simply to sustain activity in our national economies, but to help the global economy as well, and that's why it's so critical that measures in those packages avoid anything that smacks of protectionism. #Quote by Stephen Harper
Critical quotes by Ezra Klein
#138. The news is supposed to be a mirror held up to the world, but the world is far too vast to fit in our mirror. The fundamental thing the media does all day, every day, is decide what to cover - decide, that is, what is newsworthy.

Here's the dilemma: to decide what to cover is to become the shaper of the news rather than a mirror held up to the news. It makes journalists actors rather than observers. It annihilates our fundamental conception of ourselves. And yet it's the most important decision we make. If we decide to give more coverage to Hillary Clinton's emails than to her policy proposals - which is what we did - then we make her emails more important to the public's understanding of her character and potential presidency than her policy proposals. In doing so, we shape not just the news but the election, and thus the country.

While I'm critical of the specific decision my industry made in that case, this problem is inescapable. The news media isn't just an actor in politics. It's arguably the most powerful actor in politics. It's the primary intermediary between what politicians do and what the public knows. The way we try to get around this is by conceptually outsourcing the decisions about what we cover to the idea of newsworthiness. If we simply cover what's newsworthy, then we're not the ones making those decisions - it's the neutral, external judgment of news worthiness that bears responsibility. The problem is that no one, anywhere, h #Quote by Ezra Klein
Critical quotes by Rhonda Abrams
#139. Commitment to each other is critical. Let's make our deadlines and due dates mean something. For changes to occur, we have to embrace them over and over. Take it step by step
but keep moving forward
and a year from now, we'll find we've moved from here to there. #Quote by Rhonda Abrams
Critical quotes by Jo Marchant
#140. At the heart of almost all the pathways I've learned about is one guiding principle: if we feel safe, cared for and in control - in a critical moment during injury or disease, or generally throughout our lives - we do better. We feel less pain, less fatigue, less sickness. Our immune system works with us instead of against us. Our bodies ease off on emergency defenses and can focus on repair and growth. #Quote by Jo Marchant
Critical quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#141. The person of analytic or critical intellect finds something ridiculous in everything. The person of synthetic or constructive intellect, in almost nothing. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Critical quotes by Jon Landau
#142. There is a 'patrician arrogance' to James Taylor that accounts in part for his popularity while it at the same time explains the critical resistance to his work. #Quote by Jon Landau
Critical quotes by J. Michael Straczynski
#143. The problem with writing a monthly book is that you're going through your work like a man running for a bus, red-faced and out of breath. There isn't time for reflection or critical self-examination. #Quote by J. Michael Straczynski
Critical quotes by Italo Calvino
#144. Now you mustn't think that I don't have any ideas for novels in my head. I've got ideas for ten novels in my head. But with every idea I have, I already foresee the wrong novels I would write, because I also have critical ideas in my head; I've got a full theory of the perfect novel, and that's what stumps me. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Critical quotes by Paulo Freire
#145. Whereas banking education anesthetizes and inhibits creative power, problem-posing education involves a constant unveiling of reality. The former attempts to maintain the submersion of consciousness; the latter strives for the emergence of consciousness and critical intervention in reality. #Quote by Paulo Freire
Critical quotes by Richard H H Johnston
#146. One of the distinctive features of Christian Mindfulness is that it does have moral content. In other words, the moral content is not relativistic. It is based on an imitation of the character of Christ and the ways of God as revealed in Christian Scripture. Christian Mindfulness which is non-judgemental in its quality seeks to avoid harsh, critical and condemning approaches to self and to others. The accusing and condemning tongue can be destructive. Mindful awareness creates space where we can step back and step away from judgementalism. The new environment in which we are invited to relate to ourselves and others is one of kindness. #Quote by Richard H H Johnston
Critical quotes by Robert J. Wicks
#147. Critical thinking helps us to more clearly understand situations, patients, colleagues, and our agendas, negative emotions, attitudes, motivations, talents, and growing edges. This not only helps us to have a greater grasp of reality but also stops the drain of psychological energy that is necessary to be defensive or to protect our image. Because critical thinking is not natural, although we may think it is for us, it takes discipline, a willingness to face the unpleasant, and a stamina that allows one not to become unduly frustrated when we do not achieve results as quickly as we prefer with respect to our insights and growth. #Quote by Robert J. Wicks
Critical quotes by Israel Shenker
#148. Embracing and rejecting tradition, bound and liberated by faith, torn between obscurantism and reason, self-assured and self-critical, they were a kaleidoscope of fragments, positions held and abandoned, images formed and shattered, God-fearing Jew, God-denying Jew, passionate and indifferent, hero and villain, yea-sayer, nay-sayer. #Quote by Israel Shenker
Critical quotes by Lundy Bancroft
#149. Objectification is a critical reason why an abuser tends to get worse over time. As his conscience adapts to one level of cruelty-he builds to the next. By depersonalizing his partner, the abuser protects himself from the natural human emotions of guilt and empathy, so that he can sleep at night with a clear conscience. He distances himself so far from her humanity that her feelings no longer count, or simply cease to exist. #Quote by Lundy Bancroft
Critical quotes by Karen McQuestion
#150. Every cell in your body, she said, was a quark, a sort of vibrating string. And through their thoughts and intentions, human beings had an almost magnetic power to attract similar strings out in the universe. As the number and intensity of these attracted strings build, a critical mass is reached and the want, whatever that may be, comes into being. Most of us are more powerful than we know. We are each in charge of our own vibrating energy. #Quote by Karen McQuestion
Critical quotes by Aaron Levie

Critical quotes by Marc Andreessen
#155. There will be certain points of time when everything collides together and reaches critical mass around a new concept or a new thing that ends up being hugely relevant to a high percentage of people or businesses. But it's really really hard to predict those. I don't believe anyone can. #Quote by Marc Andreessen
Critical quotes by Sandra Bullock

Critical quotes by Ian MacKaye
#157. There are many things that people do happily that I can't imagine why they would do it ... But I have to say that even though I am critical or judgmental of society at large, I'm not critical of people individually. We are who we are. #Quote by Ian MacKaye
Critical quotes by John Astin
#158. The world is a collective madhouse, its inhabitants are merely faking sanity. It is critical to becoming aware of these aberrations, for pretensions can be the enemy of love. #Quote by John Astin
Critical quotes by Hermann Goring
#159. Hitler had the willpower of a demon and he needed it. If he didn't have such a strong willpower he couldn't have achieved anything. Don't forget, if Hitler had not lost the war, if he did not have to fight against the combination of big powers like England, America, and Russia - each one he could have conquered individually - these defendants and these generals would now be saying, 'Heil Hitler,' and would not be so damn critical. #Quote by Hermann Goring
Critical quotes by Derek Bok

Although professors regard improving critical thinking as the most important goal of college, tests reveal that seniors who began their studies with average critical thinking skills have progressed only from the 50th percentile of entering freshmen to about the 69th percentile. #Quote by Derek Bok
Critical quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#161. Reading, writing, and personal introspection will not protect us from hardship and suffering, but they might introduce us to critical thinking and expose us to what is good in humankind and beautiful in the world that we share with all of nature. Contemplative thought, especially that supplemented with reading literature and attempting to write our own replies to the echoing voices of writers whom preceded us provide us with the potentiality for change, the possibility of personal illumination that enables us to experience a heighted quality of life. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster

Critical quotes by R.J. Blizzard
#166. In life, there are as many critical stages as there are stars, most of the time we cannot see them. They are hidden by storm clouds or bright light. However, there are certain crucial junctures in life; even the blind can easily witness with a little soulful reflection. These moments, lived and experienced properly, bring beauty and grace into the life of every human willing to see. #Quote by R.J. Blizzard

Critical quotes by Gerardo Marti
#168. White Evangelicals neither obscure nor ignore their religious convictions when they declare their allegiance to the 45th president. In fact, their actions indicate a preeminent concern with upholding orthodoxy. In the case of President Trump, observers should focus on discerning the orthodoxy of an actor who is perceived as religiously legitimate primarily because he engages in actions in support of religiously defined group interests rather than as a result of statements of belief or piety of behavior. While fear, nostalgia, racial resentment, and white nationalism have all been analytical pieces of the Trump support puzzle scholars have been weaving together since November 2016, a critical aspect of Trump support is to assert, rather than deny, that he is indeed unexpectedly religiously orthodox in the conduct of his presidency #Quote by Gerardo Marti

Critical quotes by Cory Booker
#172. As people come to understand the environmental damages being caused by carbon and industry pollutants, there is a call for "full-cost accounting." This is an effort to include the adverse environmental costs of manufacturing and other production in the price of producing those items--from the cost of cleanup to the health impacts of carbon pollution. Currently, companies' profit-and-loss statements don't account for these and other costs, which are paid for by us all, and disproportionately by the poor and vulnerable. By failing to pay for the real cost of production, by misrepresenting or ignoring the vast consequences of some of their work, certain businesses and corporations have pursued paths that are at odds with the interests of society. A greater movement toward full-cost accounting is critical if we are going to align business decisions with what is in the best interests of future generations... #Quote by Cory Booker
Critical quotes by Kresley Cole
#173. Matthew? "Finn, what was Matthew like before he left? Did he bring supplies with him? Food?" He was always hungry.

"A metric shit ton of food."

"Did he tell you good-bye before leaving?"

"Kinda. You know Matto. He said a bunch of weird stuff."

"Like what?" Weird stuff from him could be critical.

Finn peered at the tent roof. "He told me, 'I see far' and 'the gods mark us all.' And something like 'All is not what it seems.' I thought he was kind of joking around, but he didn't laugh."

"Anything else?"

Finn snapped his fingers. "Oh, oh, and right before he rode out, he caught my eye and said, 'I've made peace with it.'"

With what? #Quote by Kresley Cole

Critical quotes by Wendell Berry
#175. That we can prescribe the terms of our own success, that we can live outside or in ignorance of the Great Economy are the greatest errors. They condemn us to a life without a standard, wavering in inescapable bewilderment from paltry self-satisfaction to paltry self-dissatisfaction. But since we have no place to live but in the Great Economy, whether or not we know that and act accordingly is the critical question, not about economy merely, but about human life itself.

It is possible to make a little economy, such as our present one, that is so short-sighted and in which accounting is of so short a term as to give the impression that vices are necessary and practically justifiable. When we make our economy a little wheel turning in opposition to what we call "nature," then we set up competitiveness as the ruling principle in our explanation of reality and in our understanding of economy; we make of it, willy-nilly, a virtue. But competitiveness, as a ruling principle and a virtue, imposes a logic that is extremely difficult, perhaps impossible, to control. That logic explains why our cars and our clothes are shoddily made, why our "wastes" are toxic, and why our "defensive" weapons are suicidal; it explains why it is so difficult for us to draw a line between "free enterprise" and crime. If our economic ideal is maximum profit with minimum responsibility, why should we be surprised to find our corporations so frequently in court and robbery on the increase? Why sh #Quote by Wendell Berry

If the United States is promoting the development of exploits, of vulnerabilities, of insecurity in this critical infrastructure, and we're not fixing it when we find it, instead we put it on the shelf so we can use it the next time we want to launch an attack against some foreign country. We're leaving ourselves at risk. #Quote by Edward Snowden

Critical quotes by Alistair Cross
#179. I think it's important to present yourself as a professional. While writing a good book is critical, nothing will cancel that out faster than behaving like an amateur. I cringe every time I see an author arguing with a reader who left a poor review, or fighting with their friends on Facebook … or publicly bashing their agents or publishers. #Quote by Alistair Cross

Critical quotes by Jacques Ranciere
#182. Critical art is an art that aims to produce a new perception of the world, and therefore to create a commitment to its transformation. This schema, very simple in appearance, is actually the conjunction of three processes: first, the production of a sensory form of 'strangeness'; second, the development of an awareness of the reason for that strangeness and third, a mobilization of individuals as a result of that awareness. #Quote by Jacques Ranciere

Critical quotes by David Brin
#184. For all its beauty, honesty, and effectiveness at improving the human condition, science demands a terrible price - that we accept what experiments tell us about the universe, whether we like it or not. It's about consensus and teamwork and respectful critical argument, working with, and through, natural law. It requires that we utter, frequently, those hateful words - 'I might be wrong.' #Quote by David Brin
Critical quotes by Jane Goldman
#185. The 1980s: feminism, postmodernism, sexual/textual politics

While it might be tempting to generalise that Woolf 's writing was being discussed almost in two separate camps during the 1980s, formalists on the one hand, and feminists on the other, this would be to simplify things too far.
Many critics were attempting to make sense of and connect her feminist politics with her modernist practices. Such investigations coincided with the explosion of theory in literary studies, and once again the work of Virginia
Woolf was central to the framing of many of the major theoretical developments in literary critical engagements with feminism, postmodernism, deconstruction and psychoanalysis. In the context of the rise of 'high theory'
and the questioning of old-school Marxist, materialist, humanist and historicist literary theories, Woolf studies wrestled with the locating of her radical feminist politics in the avant-garde qualities of the text itself, and its endlessly transgressive play of signifiers, with the Woolfian inscription of radically deconstructed models of the self and of sexuality and jouissance. #Quote by Jane Goldman
Critical quotes by James Scott, Senior Fellow, Institute For Critical Infrastructure Technology
#186. In this business, I find more value in working with hackers who abstract new realities from cast aside code and concepts than academics who regurgitate other people's work and try to pawn it off as their own. #Quote by James Scott, Senior Fellow, Institute For Critical Infrastructure Technology
Critical quotes by Joe Conason
#187. The problem isn't that conservatives are wrong about the efficiency of markets or the creativity of enterprise. It's that they have made false idols of both, usually without acknowledging that markets work best when well regulated, that private enterprise cannot meet every human need, that government has always played a critical role in our economy, and that the profit motive can be socially and environmentally destructive as well as dynamic. #Quote by Joe Conason
Critical quotes by Melinda Gates
#188. Think, for a moment, about our educational ladder.
We've strengthened the steps lifting students from elementary school to junior high, and those from junior high to high school.
But, that critical step taking students from high school into adulthood is badly broken. And it can no longer support the weight it must bear. #Quote by Melinda Gates
Critical quotes by Dick Latvala
#189. It's kind of hard to find something that will get your juices flowing if you're somewhat critical. I have a hard time finding great things for myself in '94 and certainly in '95. #Quote by Dick Latvala
Critical quotes by Marianne Williamson
#190. The sense of endings as well as beginnings in the air is now so obvious in so many dimensions of our experience that a critical mass has been reached. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Critical quotes by Meryle Secrest
#191. The disappearance of an audience that had supported experimentation and made such works financial, as well as critical, successes. The decline of liberal-arts teaching in schools and colleges meant that the new audience was less cultured and intellectually oriented; wedded to television and movies, it wanted to be entertained rather than challenged. #Quote by Meryle Secrest
Critical quotes by DEEPAK HIWALE
#192. Thinking (especially, critical) is an energy-sapping, calorie-sapping process!

Now, since time immemorial, calories have been considered a premium for survival, and therefore, we are always in a calorie-storage mode!

No wonder, there's dumb everywhere around you! And followers too! People will leave the thinking to you and will blindly follow you... Also, therefore the argument 'that it must be true because most people say it', doesn't hold much water! #Quote by DEEPAK HIWALE
Critical quotes by Pat Burns
#193. Toronto was a great place to work, a fun place to work. People were so hockey-oriented, hockey-minded, without being too critical. In Montreal, they got downright nasty sometimes. #Quote by Pat Burns
Critical quotes by David Quammen
#194. It comes and it goes. But epidemiologists have recognized that, with measles virus, as with other pathogens, there's a critical minimum size of the host population, below which it can't persist indefinitely as an endemic, circulating infection. This is known as the critical community size (CCS), an important parameter in disease dynamics. #Quote by David Quammen
Critical quotes by Karen DeCrow
#195. At 20 and 30, we are like travelers in a foreign country, reading the guide book to learn how to behave, to learn when the post office is open. Trivia looms important; critical issues fade into a pastel background, unrecognized. #Quote by Karen DeCrow
Critical quotes by H.W. Brands
#196. The first 10 days of a cattle drive were the most critical, as a stampede was most likely when the cattle were closest to their habitual home. #Quote by H.W. Brands
Critical quotes by Claudia Velandia
#197. Your mental attitude and its direction are critical factors in how you experience and navigate life. #Quote by Claudia Velandia
Critical quotes by Sharlto Copley
#198. The accent is always critical for me because it informs a lot of the character. #Quote by Sharlto Copley
Critical quotes by John Battelle
#199. I think Facebook is an extraordinarily important part of the Internet ecosystem, and having a robust presence there is a critical part of any brand (or company's) strategy. #Quote by John Battelle
Critical quotes by Jim Butcher
#200. Merlin had, according to legend, created the White Council of Wizards from the chaos of the fall of the Roman Empire. He plunged into the flames of the burning Library of Alexandria to save the most critical texts, helped engineer the Catholic Church as a vessel to preserve knowledge and culture during Europe's Dark Ages, and leapt tall cathedrals in a single bound. #Quote by Jim Butcher
