Forecast quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#1. But I think certain death and dismemberment is in my forecast, followed by light rain of guts and flayed skin. #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Forecast quotes by Teresa Of Avila
#2. How poor is the wisdom of men, and how uncertain their forecast! #Quote by Teresa Of Avila
Forecast quotes by Thomas Sowell
#3. Would you bet your paycheck on a weather forecast for tomorrow? If not, then why should this country bet billions on global warming predictions that have even less foundation? #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Forecast quotes by Michael Miklaucic
#4. Complex operations, in which agencies assume complementary roles and operate in close proximity-often with similar missions but conflicting mandates-accentuate these tensions. The tensions are evident in the processes of analyzing complex environments, planning for complex interventions, and implementing complex operations. Many reports and analyses forecast that these complex operations are precisely those that will demand our attention most in the indefinite future.

As essayist Barton and O'Connell note, our intelligence and understanding of the root cause of conflict, multiplicity of motivations and grievances, and disposition of actors is often inadequate. Moreover, the problems that complex operations are intended and implemented to address are convoluted, and often inscrutable. They exhibit many if not all the characteristics of "wicked problems," as enumerated by Rittel and Webber in 1973: they defy definitive formulations; any proposed solution or intervention causes the problem to mutate, so there is no second chance at a solution; every situation is unique; each wicked problem can be considered a symptom of another problem. As a result, policy objectives are often compound and ambiguous. The requirements of stability, for example, in Afghanistan today, may conflict with the requirements for democratic governance. Efforts to establish an equitable social contract may well exacerbate inter-communal tensions that can lead to violence. The rule of law, as we #Quote by Michael Miklaucic
Forecast quotes by George Osborne
#5. The rise in world oil prices has been larger than anyone forecast. #Quote by George Osborne
Forecast quotes by Guy Kawasaki
#6. "(Big name research firm) says our market will be $50 billion in 2010." Every entrepreneur has a few slides about how the market potential for his segment is tens of billions. It doesn't matter if the product is bar mitzah planning software or 802.11 chip sets. Venture capitalists don't believe this type of forecast because it's the fifth one of this magnitude that they've heard that day. Entrepreneurs would do themselves a favor by simply removing any reference to market size estimates from consulting firms. #Quote by Guy Kawasaki
Forecast quotes by Jorgen Randers
#7. There is only one more thing for me to say: Please help make my forecast wrong. Together we could create a much better world. #Quote by Jorgen Randers
Forecast quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#8. All right, kids. We're going to a party where they don't like us very much. Everyone know what they're doing? (Sin)
Not a clue, but I think certain death and dismemberment is in my forecast, followed by a light rain of guys and flayed skin. (Kish) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Forecast quotes by Marcel Proust
#9. We say that the hour of death cannot be forecast, but when we say this we imagine that hour as placed in an obscure and distant future. It never occurs to us that it has any connection with the day already begun or that death could arrive this same afternoon, this afternoon which is so certain and which has every hour filled in advance. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Forecast quotes by Jerome Groopman
#10. Hope is one of our central emotions, but we are often at a loss when asked to define it. Many of us confuse hope with optimism, a prevailing attitude that "things turn out for the best." But hope differs from optimism. Hope does not arise from being told to "Think Positively," or from hearing an overly rosy forecast. Hope, unlike optimism, is rooted in unalloyed reality. Although there is no uniform definition of hope, I found on that seemed to capture what my patients had taught me. Hope is the elevating feeling we experience when we see - in the mind's eye- a path to a better future. Hope acknowledges the significant obstacles and deep pitfalls along that path. True hope has no room for delusion. #Quote by Jerome Groopman
Forecast quotes by Albert Howard
#11. The prophet is always at the mercy of events; nevertheless, I venture to conclude this book with the forecast that at least half the illnesses of mankind
will disappear once our food supplies are raised from fertile soil and consumed in a fresh condition. #Quote by Albert Howard
Forecast quotes by C.J. Cherryh
#12. Tabini was at least canny enough in the differences between atevi and human to know that, gut level, he might think he understood - but chances were very good that he wouldn't, couldn't, and never would, unaided by the paidhi, come up with the right forecast of human behavior because he didn't come with the right hardwiring. Average people didn't analyze what they thought: they thought they thought, and half of it was gut reaction. #Quote by C.J. Cherryh
Forecast quotes by John L. Casti
#13. I believe is that we can forecast the "changing landscape of context," and thus get insight into when we are entering the danger zone of an X-event. #Quote by John L. Casti
Forecast quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#14. If you ever do have to heed a forecast, keep in mind that its accuracy degrades rapidly as you extend it through time. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Forecast quotes by George L. Mosse
#15. Georges Sorel, to whom fascism is so much indebted, wrote at the beginning of our century that all great movements are compelled by 'myths.' A myth is the strongest belief held by the group, and its adherents feel themselves to be an army of truth fighting an army of evil. Some years earlier, in 1895, the French psychologist Gustav Le Bon had written of the 'conservatism of crowds' which cling tenaciously to traditional ideas. Hitler took the basic nationalism of the German tradition and the longing for stable personal relationships of olden times, and built upon them as the strongest belief of the group. In the diffusion of the 'myth' Hitler fulfilled what Le Bon had forecast: that 'magical powers' were needed to control the crowd. The Fuhrer himself wrote of the 'magic influence' of mass suggestion and the liturgical aspects of his movement, and its success as a mass religion bore out the truth of this view. #Quote by George L. Mosse
Forecast quotes by Amos Bronson Alcott
#16. I find my past in my present, and from these forecast my future. #Quote by Amos Bronson Alcott
Forecast quotes by Myla Goldberg
#17. Miriam will never know what kind of dog attacked her, will imagine a Doberman or a German shepherd with snarling, angry teeth despite the fact she bears neither bite marks nor broken skin. It will never cross her mind that the dog was a beagle and that she was knocked over from a surprise more than force. The children of the house she fled will use the incident to convince their parents to keep the dog, which had been on the verge of being given away for its propensity to shit at the slightest hint of thunder it having been sequestered in the garage that night because of a stormy forecast. The family will never know what manner of burglar their fog deflected, will imagine a scruffy, heavy-set man with scars and a limp groping the family jewelery. It will never cross their minds that their intruder was am upper middle-class wife and mother of two who would have had eyes only for their Chinese teakettle. #Quote by Myla Goldberg
Forecast quotes by Duff McDonald
#18. Enron followed the unwise practice of paying bonuses based on forecasted profits, not actual cash flows, a system that posed a problem remarkably similar to the R&D issues Gluck and his colleagues had solved at Northern Electric years earlier. In short: You can forecast anything. Delivering actual results is a different story. The emphasis on forecasts also neutralized Enron's so-called risk-management group, which became a shrinking violet in the face of ever more outrageous estimates. #Quote by Duff McDonald
Forecast quotes by Willard Scott
#19. The only way to predict if there's a cloud on your horizon due to glaucoma is to get tested. No matter what the diagnosis, the forecast is for clear vision in the years ahead. #Quote by Willard Scott
Forecast quotes by George Friedman
#20. A research division develops marketing material for its deal makers. We have no policy position. If you have a policy position you can't possibly forecast. #Quote by George Friedman
Forecast quotes by Lee Konstantinou
#21. Today's Terror Forecast has predicted a day of low-to-moderate unrest for East Jerusalem with mild political pressure moving inward from the west. #Quote by Lee Konstantinou
Forecast quotes by Nate Silver
#22. You will need to learn how to express-and quantify-the uncertainty in your predictions. You will need to update your forecast as facts and circumstances change. You will need to recognize the wisdom in seeing the world from a different viewpoint. The more you are willing to do these things, the more capable you will be of evaluating a wide variety of information without abusing it. #Quote by Nate Silver
Forecast quotes by Martin Rees
#23. Some things, like the orbits of the planets, can be calculated far into the future. But that's atypical. In most contexts, there is a limit. Even the most fine-grained computation can only forecast British weather a few days ahead. There are limits to what can ever be learned about the future, however powerful computers become. #Quote by Martin Rees
Forecast quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#24. I nee to reason for a plague, ... As far as I know no comets or eclipses have been forecast, and our sins are not great enough for God to be concerned with us. #Quote by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Forecast quotes by Charles De Leusse
#25. We have a thousand possible, but only one is the target. (Nous avons mille possibles, - Mais un seul est la cible) #Quote by Charles De Leusse
Forecast quotes by Howard Zinn
#26. We have here a forecast of the long history of American politics, the mobilization of lower-class energy by upper-class politicians, for their own purposes. This was not purely deception; it involved, in part, a genuine recognition of lower-class grievances, which helps to account for its effectiveness as a tactic over the centuries. As #Quote by Howard Zinn
Forecast quotes by E.T.A. Hoffmann
#27. In all probability, the man who found the horoscope would also catch Nut and Nutcracker. They had to believe all the more strongly in the astrologer's new forecast since none of his predictions had ever come true. Sooner or later, his prognoses had to be right, given that the king, who could never be wrong, had made him his Grand Augur. #Quote by E.T.A. Hoffmann
Forecast quotes by Linda Bradford Raschke
#28. I believe that only short-term price swings can be predicted with any precision. The accuracy of a prediction drops off dramatically, the more distant the forecast time. I'm a strong believer in chaos theory. #Quote by Linda Bradford Raschke
Forecast quotes by Philip E. Tetlock
#29. produce forecast-wrecking #Quote by Philip E. Tetlock
Forecast quotes by Lewis Terman
#30. It is evident, therefore, that one of the most fundamental problems of psychology is that of investigating the laws of mental growth. When these laws are known, the door of the future will in a measure be opened; determination of the child's present status will enable us to forecast what manner of adult he will become. #Quote by Lewis Terman
Forecast quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#31. Vision is the foresight or forecast or insight into the future. Vision is the picture of one's destiny or accomplishment, or simply what a person is meant to do or become. #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Forecast quotes by Nate Silver
#32. If you have reason to think that yesterday's forecast went wrong, there is no glory in sticking to it. #Quote by Nate Silver
Forecast quotes by Ed Catmull
#33. Our mental models aren't reality. They are tools, like the models weather forecasters use to predict the weather. But, as we know all too well, sometimes the forecast says rain and, boom, the sun comes out. The tool is not reality. The key is knowing the difference. #Quote by Ed Catmull
Forecast quotes by Charles Bruce
#34. Note for a Textbook

The question is never answered, never resolved,
The circle of love and anger never squared,
The stubborn instinct not translated yet
In decimals, accurate and predictable
In union dues or payroll cuts or blood...

Always a symbol lost in the lovely theorem,
A fraction that will not fit in the sum of the system,
A jutting thrust in the graph of the commissar's forecast,
A troublesome blank in gauleiter's careful accounting,
An awkward hitch in the plans of the second vice-president.

The answers worked on the slate are never the same,
And the answers proved in the back of the book are wrong. #Quote by Charles Bruce
Forecast quotes by Nate Silver
#35. The key to making a good forecast is not in limiting yourself to quantitative information. #Quote by Nate Silver
Forecast quotes by Derek Thompson
#36. Cultural products will spread faster and wider when everybody can see what everybody else is doing. It suggests that the future of many hit-making markets will be fully open, radically transparent, and very, very unequal. #Quote by Derek Thompson
Forecast quotes by Colson Whitehead
#37. He had met this sort of white man before, earnest and believing what came out of their mouths. The veracity of their words was another matter, but at least they believed them. The southern white man was spat from the loins of the devil and there was no way to forecast his next evil act. #Quote by Colson Whitehead
Forecast quotes by Walter Kirn
#38. Something about the structure of my brain, its associative, porous, open-endedness, was defenseless against the ever-enlarging Web. Every video, news story, photo, email, stock chart, sexy picture, and five-day weather forecast was an enticement to step into the forest, and once I was two or three bread crumbs down the path, the witches had me, I was in their oven. #Quote by Walter Kirn
Forecast quotes by Ruchir Sharma
#39. The old rule of forecasting was to make as many forecasts as possible and publicise the ones you got right. The new rule is to forecast so far in the future, no one will know you got it wrong. #Quote by Ruchir Sharma
Forecast quotes by Sun Tzu
#40. I will be able to forecast which side will be victorious and which defeated. #Quote by Sun Tzu
Forecast quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#41. Interviews were invented to make journalism less passive. Instead of waiting for something to happen, journalists ask someone what should or could happen. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Forecast quotes by Eric Ries
#42. Entrepreneurs can't forecast accurately, because they are trying something fundamentally new. So they will often be laughably behind plan - and on the brink of success. #Quote by Eric Ries
Forecast quotes by Serena Williams
#43. I'm an unbelievable designer. I don't know how I know and just do these things. I just start sketching and then I just know the colors and I always know the forecast. I know green and purple are going to be hot. I was born to be a designer. I worked hard to be a tennis player, I don't work hard to be a designer. #Quote by Serena Williams
Forecast quotes by Piers Corbyn
#44. The weather records of the U.S.A. are the best kept and most accessible in the world, thanks to consistent government/military taxpayer support. There are longer European data sets, but the U.S.A. data is enough to forecast major extreme events. #Quote by Piers Corbyn
Forecast quotes by Noah Wright
#45. Today's forecast, party cloudy and a sleight chance of Noah in your life #Quote by Noah Wright
Forecast quotes by Dean Williams
#46. Confidence in a forecast rises with the amount of information that goes into it. But the accuracy of the forecast stays the same. #Quote by Dean Williams
Forecast quotes by Will Self
#47. You don't need to know this - but here goes: due to some acquired infantilism, I feel compelled to fall asleep listening to the radio. On a good night, I'll push the frail barque of my psyche off into the waters of Lethe accompanied by the midnight newsreader - on a bad one, it's the shipping forecast. #Quote by Will Self
Forecast quotes by Jamie Dimon
#48. No one can forecast the economy with certainty. #Quote by Jamie Dimon
Forecast quotes by Alan Armstrong
#49. The major changes that will be occurring within the new merged partnership are exciting in many ways. First, we will have the highest forecast distribution growth rate of any of the major MLPs. Second, our coverage will be above average for the same peer group with expected $1.1 billion of excess cash flow coverage through 2017 and the Access cash flows, along with our major new fee based projects continue to dramatically reduce exposure to commodity prices. #Quote by Alan Armstrong
Forecast quotes by A.A. Bell
#50. Guesstimate = better than a guess but not as guaranteed as an estimate ...
i.e. It's simply a calculated forecast based on probability, historical trends, observations, analytical research, politics, studies of human nature and good ol' common sense (the latter 2 of which usually cause a toxic sediment when mixed, LOL) ... #Quote by A.A. Bell
Forecast quotes by Bill Bryson
#51. I have a small tattered clipping that I sometimes carry with meand pull out for purposes of privateamusement. It's a weather forecast from theWestern Daily Mail and it says, in toto: 'Outlook: Dry and warm, but cooler with some rain. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Forecast quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#52. What is surprising is not the magnitude of our forecast errors, but our absence of awareness of it. This is all the more worrisome when we engage in deadly conflicts: wars are fundamentally unpredictable (and we do not know it). Owing to this misunderstanding of the causal chains between policy and actions, we can easily trigger Black Swans thanks to aggressive ignorance-like a child playing with a chemistry kit. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Forecast quotes by Roger Zelazny
#53. People never pay attention to weather reports; this, I believe, is a constant factor in man's psychological makeup, stemming probably from an ancient distrust of the shaman. You want them to be wrong. If they're right, then they're somehow superior, and this is even more uncomfortable than getting wet.
This Moment of the Storm #Quote by Roger Zelazny
Forecast quotes by Daniel Kahneman
#54. It is wrong to blame anyone for failing to forecast accurately in an unpredictable world. However, it seems fair to blame professionals for believing they can succeed in an impossible task. Claims #Quote by Daniel Kahneman
Forecast quotes by Nathan Wolfe
#55. As a species, I think we have no choice but to try and forecast pandemics. #Quote by Nathan Wolfe
Forecast quotes by George Carlin
#56. Weather forecast for tonight: dark. Continued dark overnight, with widely scattered light by morning. #Quote by George Carlin
Forecast quotes by Nader K. Rad
#57. Product Owners should communicate effectively with the customer (the inevitable success factor in every project), and use the information to keep the Product Backlog updated with all the changes. They also measure the performance of the project, forecast the completion date, and make this information transparent to all stakeholders. #Quote by Nader K. Rad
Forecast quotes by Amit Trivedi
#58. The only thing I cannot predict is the future #Quote by Amit Trivedi
Forecast quotes by Eric Maskin
#59. Much theoretical work, of course, focuses on existing economic institutions. The theorist wants to explain or forecast the economic or social outcomes that these institutions generate. #Quote by Eric Maskin
Forecast quotes by Winston S. Churchill
#60. I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key. That key is Russian national interest. #Quote by Winston S. Churchill
Forecast quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#61. It is not for us to forecast the future, but to shape it. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Forecast quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#62. DIAGNOSIS, n. A physician's forecast of disease by the patient's pulse and purse. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Forecast quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#63. Holmes laughed. "Watson insists that I am the dramatist in real life," said he. "Some touch of the artist wells up within me, and calls insistently for a well-staged performance. Surely our profession, Mr. Mac, would be a drab and sordid one if we did not sometimes set the scene so as to glorify our results. The blunt accusation, the brutal tap upon the shoulder - what can one make of such a denouement? But the quick inference, the subtle trap, the clever forecast of coming events, the triumphant vindication of bold theories - are these not the pride and the justification of our life's work? At the present moment you thrill with the glamour of the situation and the anticipation of the hunt. Where would be that thrill if I had been as definite as a timetable? #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Forecast quotes by Kathleen Tessaro
#64. Please tell me it's going to rain today, Francois.'
'Ah!' he smiled. (This was obviously familiar territory.) 'I regret to inform you that the forecast calls for nothing but sunshine.'
'Relentless sunshine,' she corrected him. #Quote by Kathleen Tessaro
Forecast quotes by Iman
#65. It's really not a good idea to forecast or double guess the fates; you will always be fooled. #Quote by Iman
Forecast quotes by Mark Twain
#66. It is best to read the weather forecast before praying for rain. #Quote by Mark Twain
Forecast quotes by Oswald Chambers
#67. Do not forecast where the temptation will come; it is the least likely thing that is the peril. In the aftermath of a great spiritual transaction the "retired sphere of the leasts" begins to tell; it is not dominant, but remember it is there, and if you are not warned, it will trip you up. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Forecast quotes by Oswald Chambers
#68. Never make the blunder of trying to forecast the way God is going to answer your prayer. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Forecast quotes by Dick Francis
#69. Life is like the weather,despite a sunny forecast you can get wet. #Quote by Dick Francis
Forecast quotes by Jeffrey Towson
#70. Over the past 30 years, approximately 300 million people have moved into China's middle class. And according to the OECD Development Centre, the forecast is for another 200 million people to move into the middle class by 2026. This means the Asia Pacific region, which in 2009 represented 18% of the world's middle class, will reach 66 percent by 2030. Let's repeat that. Over the next 15 years, Asia will go from 20 percent to 66 percent of the world's middle class. At the same time, the developed markets of North America and Europe, which held a combined 54 percent of the global middle class in 2009, are forecast to drop to only 21 percent by 2030. Basically, follow the money. Asia's middle class consumers are the future. Learn Mandarin. #Quote by Jeffrey Towson
Forecast quotes by Edmund Hillary
#71. Many people have been getting too casual about climbing Everest. I forecast a disaster many times. #Quote by Edmund Hillary
Forecast quotes by Eliza Crewe
#72. I'm pretty sure Jo couldn't talk about the weather without somehow including a threat. Forecast today: cloudy with a chance I'll kick your ass. #Quote by Eliza Crewe
Forecast quotes by Jerome Groopman
#73. Hope differs from optimism. Hope does not arise from being told to "think positively," or from hearing an overly rosy forecast. Hope, unlike optimism, is rooted in unalloyed reality. #Quote by Jerome Groopman
Forecast quotes by Emily Procter
#74. In college, I was a weather anchor for the local news. I would 'borrow' my forecast from The Weather Channel. #Quote by Emily Procter
Forecast quotes by Roderick Haig-Brown
#75. There will be days when the fishing is better than one's most optimistic forecast, others when it is far worse. Either is a gain over just staying home. #Quote by Roderick Haig-Brown
Forecast quotes by George Friedman
#76. There are endless unknowns, and no forecast of a century can be either complete or utterly correct. #Quote by George Friedman
Forecast quotes by Nate Silver
#77. An admonition like "The more complex you make the model, the worse the forecast gets." is equivalent to saying "Never add too much salt to the recipe." How much complexity-how much salt-did you begin with? If you want to get good at forecasting, you'll need to immerse yourself in the craft and trust your own taste buds. #Quote by Nate Silver
Forecast quotes by Alan Greenspan
#78. People don't realize that we cannot forecast the future. What we can do is have probabilities of what causes what, but that's as far as we go. And I've had a very successful career as a forecaster, starting in 1948 forward. The number of mistakes I have made are just awesome. There is no number large enough to account for that. #Quote by Alan Greenspan
Forecast quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#79. You realise Group Captain that this might be the most important weather forecast in history? #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Forecast quotes by Emanuel Celler
#80. The population forecast for the United States in 1970 is 170 million. The population forecast for Russia alone in 1970 is 251 million. The implications are clear. #Quote by Emanuel Celler
Forecast quotes by Jeremy J. Siegel
#81. By 2060, India's economy is projected to be larger than China's because of its greater population growth. India is forecast to produce about one-quarter of world GDP from 2040 through the rest of this century. #Quote by Jeremy J. Siegel
Forecast quotes by Charles Rangel
#82. It's impossible for us to forecast what's going to happen ten years from now and make a decision today to say what we're going to do. #Quote by Charles Rangel
Forecast quotes by Clifton Anderson
#83. Meteorologists have the right perspective. They ground themselves in the current conditions (today's highs/lows). They briefly acknowledge significant events of the past (record temps). And they keep an eye on the future (five-day forecast). Honor your past accomplishments, live in the present moment, and look to the future. #Quote by Clifton Anderson
Forecast quotes by Jenny B. Jones
#84. My own forecast? How about stressful with a hundred percent chance of freaking out. #Quote by Jenny B. Jones
Forecast quotes by Edgar Fiedler
#85. If you have to forecast, forecast often. #Quote by Edgar Fiedler
Forecast quotes by Angela Khristin Brown
#86. When there are patches of clouds in the sky and you can see the sun, it is not going to storm. #Quote by Angela Khristin Brown
Forecast quotes by Brian D'Ambrosio
#87. Force, not persuasion, not discussion, is the legitimate instrument for influencing and policing the hockey mind. Fighting in hockey is one of the most magnificent and eloquent displays of refinement in all of sports. #Quote by Brian D'Ambrosio
Forecast quotes by Germaine Greer
#88. There are poems about the internet and about the shipping forecast but very few by women celebrating men. #Quote by Germaine Greer
Forecast quotes by George Friedman
#89. Economists talk about an invisible hand, in which the self-interested, short-term activities of people lead to what Adam Smith called "the wealth of nations." Geopolitics applies the concept of the invisible hand to the behavior of nations and other international actors. The pursuit of short-term self-interest by nations and by their leaders leads, if not to the wealth of nations, then at least to predictable behavior and, therefore, the ability to forecast the shape of the future international system. #Quote by George Friedman
Forecast quotes by Thomas Ligotti
#90. Every milestone in the history of the company, even when forecast with heaps of hoopla, was ultimately played out according to some secret timeline of geologic tedium, so that it was drained of all interest and drama well before it took place and afterward went all but unnoticed. #Quote by Thomas Ligotti
Forecast quotes by Tim Harford
#91. I never understand why 'economist makes forecast' is ever a headline. Whether the economist in question is from the International Monetary Fund, a City forecasting group or the Treasury - a forecast is still not news. #Quote by Tim Harford
Forecast quotes by F.B. Meyer
#92. We have all cherished our life purposes. We have forecast our futures as likely to lie in a certain direction and have dearly desired that it should be so. When hindrances have been put in our way and when we have met with strong opposition and rebuff, we have still clung to our hope. Only very slowly have we yielded and accepted the inevitable. To renounce it has been like tearing out our heart. Not till long years have passed have we realized that the Lord's plan was much wiser and grander that our own. Then suddenly we have awakened to discover that while we were desiring to do one thing, God was leading us to do another and that what we have counted secondary was primary, for His glory, and for the lasting satisfaction of our own heart. #Quote by F.B. Meyer
Forecast quotes by John Roberts
#93. Senator, my answer is that the independence and integrity of the Supreme Court requires that nominees before this committee for a position on that court not forecast, give predictions, give hints, about how they might rule in cases that might come before the Supreme Court,. #Quote by John Roberts
Forecast quotes by Philip Coggan
#94. As these debts become due, rich creditors will be pitted against poor debtors; private-sector taxpayers against public-sector workers, young workers against the retired, domestic voters against foreign bondholders. It is impossible to forecast who will win each of these battles but one thing seems certain: not all these debts will be paid in full. #Quote by Philip Coggan
Forecast quotes by DJ Patil
#95. There are some times, when you can predict weather well for the next 15 days. Other times, you can only really forecast a couple of days. Sometimes you can't predict the next two hours. #Quote by DJ Patil
Forecast quotes by John Holdren
#96. We are not, of course, optimistic about our chances of success. Some form of ecocatastrophe, if not thermonuclear war, seems almost certain to overtake us before the end of the century. (The inability to forecast exactly which one - whether plague, famine, the poisoning of the oceans, drastic climatic change, or some disaster entirely unforeseen - is hardly grounds for complacency.) #Quote by John Holdren
Forecast quotes by Tatyana Golikova
#97. It is very important to have a correct socio-economic development forecast and plan, in which inflation being a vital investment factor should be the key indicator #Quote by Tatyana Golikova
Forecast quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#98. The most important thing that most people get from the news is the prediction of the following day's weather, which most people are usually able to predict correctly by themselves. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Forecast quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith
#99. Pundits forecast not because they know, but because they are asked. #Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith
Forecast quotes by Stanley Druckenmiller
#100. Part of my advantage is that my strength is economic forecasting, but that only works in free markets, when markets are smarter than people. That's how I started. I watched the stock market, how equities reacted to change in levels of economic activity, and I could understand how price signals worked and how to forecast them. #Quote by Stanley Druckenmiller
Forecast quotes by John Steinbeck
#101. Relationship Time to Aloneness. Having a companion fixes you in time and that of the present, but when the quality of aloneness settles down, past, present and future all flow together. A memory, a present event, and a forecast all equally present. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Forecast quotes by Vladimir Lenin
#102. Revolution can never be forecast; it cannot be foretold; it comes of itself. Revolution is brewing and is bound to flare up. #Quote by Vladimir Lenin
Forecast quotes by Tim Harford
#103. Economists have allowed themselves to walk into a trap where we say we can forecast, but no serious economist thinks we can. #Quote by Tim Harford
Forecast quotes by John Naisbitt
#104. The most reliable way to forecast the future is to try to understand the present. #Quote by John Naisbitt
Forecast quotes by Jeremy Clarkson
#105. Why is the forecast so bland? Why instead of 'stormy' don't they just say the sea's 'a frothing maelstrom of terror and hopelessness'? #Quote by Jeremy Clarkson
Forecast quotes by Saki
#106. It follows that they never understood Reginald, who came down late to breakfast, and nibbled toast, and said disrespectful things about the universe. The family ate porridge, and believed in everything, even the weather forecast. #Quote by Saki
Forecast quotes by Nate Silver
#107. You don't want to influence the same system you are trying to forecast. #Quote by Nate Silver
Forecast quotes by Matthew D. Heines
#108. Wisdom of the Ages "Assault and Battery" Weather forecast for the St. Louis Rams next Sunday in Seattle. #Quote by Matthew D. Heines
Forecast quotes by Logan
#109. He who aims to forecast fog, will have mist. #Quote by Logan
Forecast quotes by Timothy Ferriss
#110. -It is possible to vastly compress most learning. In a surprising number of cases, it is possible to do something in 1-10 months that is assumed to take 1-10 years.
-The more you compress things, the more physical limiters become a bottleneck. All learning is physically limited. The brain is dependent on finite quantities of neurotransmitters, memories require REM and non-REM (NREM) sleep for consolidation, etc. The learning graph is not unlike the stress-recovery-hyperadaptation curves of weight training.
-The more extreme your ambition, just as in sports, the more you need performance enhancement via unusual schedules, diet, drugs, etc.
-Most important: due to the bipolar nature of the learning process, you can forecast setbacks. If you don't, you increase the likelihood of losing morale and quitting before the inflection point. #Quote by Timothy Ferriss
Forecast quotes by Alan Greenspan
#111. We really can't forecast all that well, and yet we pretend that we can, but we really can't. #Quote by Alan Greenspan
Forecast quotes by Bill Bryson
#112. Boxing Day.
Country pubs.
Saying 'you're the dog's bollocks' as an expression of endearment or admiration.
Jam roly-poly with custard
Ordnance Survey maps
I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue
Cream teas
The shipping forecast
The 20p piece
June evenings, about 8pm
Smelling the sea before you see it
Villages with ridiculous names like Shellow Bowells and Nether Wallop #Quote by Bill Bryson
Forecast quotes by Ryan Holmes
#113. Sales teams use social media to generate leads and track clients as they move through the sales funnel. Operations and distribution teams forecast supply chains, while research and development squads brainstorm product ideas. #Quote by Ryan Holmes
Forecast quotes by Criss Jami
#114. The most pleasant weather of all is that most difficult to even notice. #Quote by Criss Jami
Forecast quotes by Larry David
#115. Weathermen merely forecast rain to keep everyone else off the golf course #Quote by Larry David
Forecast quotes by Michael J. Gelb
#116. Champions know that success is inevitable, that there is no such thing as failure, only feedback. They know that the best way to forecast the future is to create it. #Quote by Michael J. Gelb
Forecast quotes by Isaac Asimov
#117. They met near the southern limit of the establishment grounds and for a while they spoke in an abbreviated and Aesopic language. They understood each other well, with many decades of communication behind them, and it was not necessary for them to involve themselves in all the elaboration's of human speech.

Daneel said in an all but unhearable whisper, "Clouds. Unseen."

Had Daneel been speaking for human ears, he would have said, "As you see, friend Giskard, the sky has clouded up. Had Madam Gladia waited her chance to see Solaria, she would not, in any case, have succeeded."

And Giskard's reply of "Predicted. Interview, rather," was the equivalent of "So much was predicted in the weather forecast, friend Daneel, and might have been used as an excuse to get Madam Gladia to bed early. It seemed to me to be more important, however, to meet the problem squarely and to persuade her to permit this interview I have already told you about. #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Forecast quotes by Jean Baudrillard
#118. Laughter on American television has taken the place of the chorus in Greek tragedy. It is unrelenting; the news, the stock-exchange reports, and the weather forecast are about the only things spared. #Quote by Jean Baudrillard
Forecast quotes by Lilly Pulitzer
#119. Despite the forecast, live like it's spring. #Quote by Lilly Pulitzer
Forecast quotes by Daniel Patrick Moynihan
#120. The nature of the new world system was not so different from the old. It was for the moment more stable, but a reasonable forecast would be that Africa in particular had a century of border wars ahead of it. #Quote by Daniel Patrick Moynihan
Forecast quotes by Nate Silver
#121. Expert estimates of probability are often off by factors of hundreds or
thousands. [ ... ] I used to be annoyed when the margin of error was high in
a forecasting model that I might put together. Now I view it as perhaps the
single most important piece of information that a forecaster provides. When
we publish a forecast on FiveThirtyEight, I go to great lengths to document
the uncertainty attached to it, even if the uncertainty is sufficiently
large that the forecast won't make for punchy headlines. #Quote by Nate Silver
Forecast quotes by R. Kelly
#122. The forecast today is love all around. #Quote by R. Kelly
Forecast quotes by Jenny Han
#123. The night before I leave for college, there is a Perseids meteor shower in the forecast. It's supposed to be a good one. Peter and I are going out to the lake to watch. Kitty doesn't say so, but she wants to come too; she's dying to. Her whole body is rigid with wanting and not being able to ask. Any other time I would say yes.
When I say good-bye, her lips twist in disappointment for just a second, but she hides it well. How hard it must be to be the youngest sometimes, to be the one left behind.
In the car I feel sick with guilt for being so possessive about my time with Peter. It's just that there's so little time left now…I'm a terrible big sister. Margot would have brought her.
"What are you thinking about?" Peter asks me.
"Oh, nothing," I say. I'm too ashamed to say out loud that I should have invited Kitty along.
When I come home for fall break, we'll do something the three of us. Peter and I will take her to the midnight show at the drive-in, and she'll go in her pajamas and I'll set up the backseat with a blanket for when she falls asleep. But tonight I want it to be just Peter and me, just this once. There's no use lingering in the guilt and ruining the night, when I've already done the selfish deed. And if I am truly honest with myself, I would do it again. That's how covetous I am of every last moment I have left with Peter. I want his eyes only on me; I want to talk only to him, to be just him and me for this little while longer. One day #Quote by Jenny Han
Forecast quotes by Alvin Toffler
#124. It does little good to forecast the future of semiconductors or energy, or the future of the family (even one's own family), if the forecast springs from the premise that everything else will remain unchanged. For nothing will remain unchanged. The future is fluid, not frozen. It is constructed by our shifting and changing daily decisions, and each event influences all others. #Quote by Alvin Toffler
Forecast quotes by Luke Bryan
#125. Growing up in Georgia, my dad was a farmer and we worked in agriculture, so we were always looking up at the sky, checking if rain was in the forecast. That always set the tone for the mood in my household, whether we had rain coming in or not - we knew the crops would be good and it was going to be a good week around the Bryan household. #Quote by Luke Bryan
Forecast quotes by Walter Kirn
#126. It's the little deceptions that no one catches that are going to dissolve it all someday. We'll look at clocks and we won't believe the hands. They'll forecast sun but we'll pack our slickers anyway. #Quote by Walter Kirn
Forecast quotes by Linda Pastan
#127. To be the other woman
is to be a season
that is always about to end,
when the air is flowered
with jasmine and peach,
and the weather day after day
is flawless,
and the forecast
is hurricane. #Quote by Linda Pastan
Forecast quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#128. People who forecast simply because "that's my job," knowing pretty well that their forecast is ineffectual, are not what I would call ethical. What they do is no different from repeating lies simply because "it's my job." #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Forecast quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#129. It's not a good idea to take a forecast from someone wearing a tie. If possible, tease people who take themselves and their knowledge too seriously. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Forecast quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#130. The democracy of to-day hold the liberty of one man to be absolutely nothing when in conflict with another man's right of property...
This is a world of compensations; and he would -be- no slave must consent to -have- no slave. Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it.
All honor to Jefferson - to the man who, in the concrete pressure of a struggle for national independence by a single people, had the coolness, forecast, and capacity to introduce into a merely revolutionary document, an abstract truth, applicable to all men and all times, and so embalm it there, that to-day, and in all coming days, it shall be a rebuke and a stumbling-block to the very harbingers of re-appearing tyranny and oppression. Your obedient Servant,
[Abraham Lincoln]
April 6, 1859, in a letter to MA State Rep Henry L. Pierce
Springfield, Ill. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Forecast quotes by Marty Rubin
#131. A forecast can be wrong, but not the weather. #Quote by Marty Rubin
