Majors quotes by Stewart Cink
#1. A beginner gets so excited when he hits the ball in the air or maybe hits a nice bunker shot. A player who has won major championships doesn't get that excited about those shots anymore. It takes a lot more to excite you. The closer you get to perfection, the more difficult it becomes. That's what draws me to golf. It's such a challenge. #Quote by Stewart Cink
Majors quotes by Sylvia Earle

#3.

Majors quotes by Robert Adams
#4. The only things that distinguish the photographer from everybody else are his pictures: they alone are the basis for our special interest in him. If pictures cannot be understood without knowing details of the artist's private life, then that is a reason for faulting them; major art, by definition, can stand independent of its maker. #Quote by Robert Adams

Majors quotes by Charles Stross

If I can make you good for something, then by golly I'm going to do it. (Tory) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Majors quotes by Mary Kay Zuravleff
#53. Math-thinking, I would say, encourages flipping and substituting letters in words (in the novel, one of the boys double-majors in math and myth, for example, and his twin cracks a joke about the father's handwriting that morphs "cacography" into "dadography"). #Quote by Mary Kay Zuravleff
Majors quotes by Donald Knuth

#57. Although I'm a business major out of McGill University, I know nothing ... but then I found out much later in life, nobody knows anything. #Quote by William Shatner
Majors quotes by Ansel Adams

Majors quotes by Margaret J. Wheatley
#67. We've taken disturbances and fluctuations and averaged them together to give us comfortable statistics. Our training has been to look for big numbers, important trends, major variances.

Majors quotes by Walter Willet

Majors quotes by Cal Thomas

Majors quotes by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
#71. General propositions do not decide concrete cases. The decision will depend on a judgment or intuition more subtle than any articulate major premise. #Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

Majors quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#73. The time has come to get clear about who you are and what you choose. There must come moments in every person's life when a decision is necessary. A big decision. A major choice. Such a time is now. What you get to choose today is who you are and who you choose to be, and what you wish to experience in your life. Remember, not to decide is to decide. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Majors quotes by Don Edward Beck
#74. It's not that we need to form new organizations. It's simply that we have to awaken to new ways of thinking. I believe it makes no sense to spend a lot of time attacking the current realities. It is time to create the new models that have in them the complexity that makes the older systems obsolete. And to the extent that we can do that, and do that quickly, I think we can provide what will be necessary for a major breakthrough for the future. #Quote by Don Edward Beck
Majors quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#75. When I see that the nineteenth century has crowned the idolatry of Art with the deification of Love, so that every poet is supposed to have pierced to the holy of holies when he has announced that Love is the Supreme, or the Enough, or the All, I feel that Art was safer in the hands of the most fanatical of Cromwell's major generals than it will be if ever it gets into mine. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Majors quotes by Meryl Streep
#76. The career I chose was a drama major in college, at Yale, when I played a 90-year-old woman. One of my most celebrated roles. Then I played a really fat person. I played a lot of different things. That's how I thought I loved to wrangle my talent, my need to express myself. I like to do it that way. #Quote by Meryl Streep
Majors quotes by G. Edward Griffin
#77. In 1938, I. G. Farben sent a letter to (a major drug firm), one of its American subsidiaries, (that)..all advertising contracts must contain ' ... a legal clause whereby the contract is immediately cancelled if overnight the attitude of the paper toward Germany should be changed. #Quote by G. Edward Griffin
Majors quotes by Richard Masur
#78. I was doing a play in New York, which we had done in New Haven, Connecticut. It was an American premiere of a play called The Changing Room written by a wonderful man named David Story. It was about a rugby team in the North of England. It got just screaming rave reviews. At that time, virtually every major critic went up to the Long Wharf Theater to see a new play like that. #Quote by Richard Masur
Majors quotes by Steve Carlton
#79. My major league debut came at old Busch Stadium on Grand Avenue in St. Louis against the Pittsburgh Pirates. #Quote by Steve Carlton
Majors quotes by Kelly Williams Brown
#80. Your parents, presumably, love you very much and think you are perhaps the most adorable, talented thing ever to prance upon this earth. Your friends agree with them, as do your favorite teachers, as does your significant other. When there is a You Parade, these people will be the flag bearers, the drum majors and majorettes, so make sure you are always flag bearing and drum majoring for them, too. These people who think so highly of us are very special and precious, and we must treasure them. Because here is the truth: Most of the world doesn't give a flying fuck about you. #Quote by Kelly Williams Brown
Majors quotes by Saul Williams
#81. Art can play a major role. I look at art as an alternative source of energy, the same way we might look at wind or solar or lithium batteries. #Quote by Saul Williams

Majors quotes by S.A. Huchton

Majors quotes by Eli Roth
#84. I want an iPhone 5, someone said something nasty on twitter, or my boyfriend isn't texting me back, like whatever the thing is that seems so major in your life, when a real disaster hits you suddenly strips it all away and you see what's really important and who you really are. #Quote by Eli Roth
Majors quotes by Danielle Dutton
#85. I was trying to focus on Margaret's trajectory as an artist, as a woman and an artist. Hopefully Cavendish experts won't be angry at me for anything I've left out. I feel like all the major movements of her life are there. #Quote by Danielle Dutton
Majors quotes by Phil Pringle
#86. A leader always has one major message, and this weaves into everything he or she does. It remains the primary focus. A leader is to some degree a prophet, a person with a message. Great leader [sic] see things that others don't. They preach it until others can see it as well. Their message supports the mission. A leader is a preacher, a person who communicates the fire of the mission. Not all preachers are leaders, but all great leaders will be preachers of one sort or another. #Quote by Phil Pringle
Majors quotes by Josh Beckett
#87. Pitching is pitching. I've been doing this since I was eight-years-old, playing in my backyard with my dad. The things that work in Double-A will also work in the majors. #Quote by Josh Beckett
Majors quotes by Jerry Savelle
#88. Don't major on the fall, major on getting up! #Quote by Jerry Savelle
Majors quotes by Kurt Loder
#89. So, yeah, I think it had a major effect. I think in franchising younger people, it was just an idea that's never been trotted out before, but it makes perfectly good sense. #Quote by Kurt Loder
Majors quotes by Jeff Goldblum
#90. I travel for work, but recently, friends said I should take major trips. #Quote by Jeff Goldblum
Majors quotes by Al Franken
#91. I had a great time working on the movies, both the major movies I've done. I've had a great time. I like the people in Hollywood a lot. #Quote by Al Franken
Majors quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#92. The major work of the world is not done by geniuses. It is done by ordinary people, with balance in their lives, who have learned to work in an extraordinary manner. #Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley
Majors quotes by John Flanagan
#93. The mace prodded
Will in the back again. That little habit was starting to annoy him and he was tempted to take the weapon from the sergeant major and do a little prodding of his own. #Quote by John Flanagan
Majors quotes by Rick Warren
#94. When you have a major loss in your life, the first thing you need to do is tell God exactly how you feel. #Quote by Rick Warren
Majors quotes by Rachel Vincent
#95. Lit majors are not known for watching where they're going; most of us walk with our eyes in a book instead of on the path ahead. #Quote by Rachel Vincent
Majors quotes by Abigail Barnette
#96. in terms of sin, you're in the majors, and she hasn't even filled out her Little League paperwork yet." "I'll #Quote by Abigail Barnette
Majors quotes by Sonia Gandhi
#97. Congress is responsible for every major change in India #Quote by Sonia Gandhi
Majors quotes by Paul Hindemith
#98. Music, as long as it exists, will always take its departure from the major triad and return to it. The musician cannot escape it any more than the painter his primary colors or the architect his three dimensions. #Quote by Paul Hindemith
Majors quotes by Lewis Howes
#99. Video can seem like just another challenge to overcome, but I see a major increase in my business and brand awareness, all from the power of video. #Quote by Lewis Howes
Majors quotes by Charles Colson
#100. Over the years since I became a Christian, I have always deliberately explained that I have 'accepted Jesus Christ.' These words are invariably translated into 'Colson's professed religious experience.' I discovered that one major U.S. daily, as a matter of policy, will not print the two words Jesus Christ together; when combined, the editor says, it represents an editorial judgment. #Quote by Charles Colson
Majors quotes by Rod Serling
#101. I think the essence of the argument has always been, first of all, the Guild doesn't want writing on spec. And that's been a major problem over the years. But obviously, to the young writer that's unfair and it's discriminatory, and it can be very hurtful to one's career. #Quote by Rod Serling
Majors quotes by Elizabeth Bowen
#102. As a novelist, I cannot occupy myself with "characters," or at any rate central ones, who lack panache, in one or another sense, who would be incapable of a major action or a major passion, or who have not a touch of the ambiguity, the ultimate unaccountability, the enlarging mistiness of persons "in history." History, as more austerely I now know it, is not romantic. But I am. #Quote by Elizabeth Bowen
Majors quotes by Tony Abbott
#103. The Australian public are very fair and they are always prepared to give the leader of a major political party a fair go. #Quote by Tony Abbott
Majors quotes by Jim Rohn
#104. Here's the major problem with going on strike for more money: You cannot get rich by demand! #Quote by Jim Rohn
Majors quotes by Mikhail Gorbachev
#105. It is really important to solve the problem of rational utilization and distribution of wate supplies. I dare say, the shortage of fresh water is the major ecological problem of this moment. #Quote by Mikhail Gorbachev
Majors quotes by Joanna Gaines
#106. Chip asked me about New York and what I wanted to do, and how long my dad had owned the shop, and what it was I loved about Waco. He asked about my sisters and my family in general, and what I'd done at Baylor, and if I'd known a few communications majors he'd run around with at school. (I told y'all he was chatty!) Somehow none of these questions seemed intrusive or strange to me at the time, which is funny, because thinking back I find them particularly telling.
At the time, it was just like talking with an old friend.
John finally stood up, and this baseball-cap-wearing customer that John had introduced as Chip followed. "Well, nice talking to you," he said.
"Nice talking to you too," I replied, and that was it. I went back inside. The guys in the shop wanted to know what I thought about Hot John, and I just laughed. "Sorry, guys, I don't think it's gonna work out."
The next day I came back from my lunch break to find a note on my desk: "Chip Gaines called. Call him back." I thought, Oh, that must be the guy I met yesterday. So I called him. I honestly thought he was going to ask me about getting a better price on his brakes or something, but instead he said, "Hey, I really enjoyed our conversation yesterday. I was wondering…you want to go out sometime?"
And for some reason I said okay--just like that, without any hesitation. It wasn't like me at all. When I hung up the phone, I went, "What in the world just happened!"

So you said okay i #Quote by Joanna Gaines
Majors quotes by Stephen Ambrose
#107. The number one secret of being a successful writer is this: marry an English major. #Quote by Stephen Ambrose
Majors quotes by Zelig Pliskin
#108. A person who takes a walk of 100 feet and a person who walks 2,000 miles have one major thing in common. They both need to take a first step before they take a second step. #Quote by Zelig Pliskin
Majors quotes by Jim Rohn
#109. You don't have to change that much for it to make a great deal of difference. A few simple disciplines can have a major impact on how your life works out in the next 90 days, let alone in the next 12 months or the next 3 years. #Quote by Jim Rohn
Majors quotes by Mark Edmundson
#110. English majors want the joy of seeing the world through the eyes of people who - let us admit it - are more sensitive, more articulate, shrewder, sharper, more alive than they themselves are. The experience of merging minds and hearts with Proust or James or Austen makes you see that there is more to the world than you had ever imagined. You see that life is bigger, sweeter, more tragic and intense - more alive with meaning than you had thought.

Real reading is reincarnation. There is no other way to put it. It is being born again into a higher form of consciousness than we ourselves possess. When we walk the streets of Manhattan with Walt Whitman or contemplate our hopes for eternity with Emily Dickinson, we are reborn into more ample and generous minds. "Life piled on life / Were all too little," says Tennyson's "Ulysses," and he is right. Given the ragged magnificence of the world, who would wish to live only once? The English major lives many times through the astounding transportive magic of words and the welcoming power of his receptive imagination. The economics major? In all probability he lives but once. If the English major has enough energy and openness of heart, he lives not once but hundreds of times. Not all books are worth being reincarnated into, to be sure - but those that are win Keats's sweet phrase: "a joy forever. #Quote by Mark Edmundson
Majors quotes by Jonny Lee Miller
#111. For me, there are two different things that make Sherlock Sherlock. One is, you know, within the books: obviously he's a genius with an attention to detail, his ravenous hunger for all aspects of knowledge that might feed into his work. But the major thing that makes him Sherlock is his relationship with Watson - their friendship. For me, that, I guess, is the biggest side, the more interesting side than the genius. #Quote by Jonny Lee Miller
Majors quotes by James MacGregor Burns
#112. To elevate the goals of humankind, to achieve high moral purpose, to realize major intended change, leaders must thrust themselves into the most intractable processes and structures of history and ultimately master them. #Quote by James MacGregor Burns
Majors quotes by Yogi Berra
#113. If you don't set goals, you'll never reach them. Or like they say in golf, if you aim for nothing, you'll hit it every time. Take any player in the major leagues: I'd say just about everyone of them had a dream - a goal - to be a big-leaguer when they were kids. It wasn't an easy goal, but it was a reachable one, and that's important. #Quote by Yogi Berra
Majors quotes by Glenn Reynolds
#114. [B]ipartisanship means tarring and feathering politicans from both major parties. #Quote by Glenn Reynolds
Majors quotes by Bill Gates
#115. Strategically, a major function of the CEO is to look for bad news and encourage the organization to respond to it. Employees must be encouraged to share bad news as much as good news. #Quote by Bill Gates
Majors quotes by Margaret Thatcher
#116. I pay tribute to John Major's achievement in persuading the other 11 Community heads of government that they could move ahead to the social chapter but not within the Treaty and without Britain's participation. It sets a vital precedent, for an enlarged Community can only function if we build in flexibility of that kind. John Major deserves high praise for ensuring at Maastricht that we would not have either a single currency or the absurd provisions of the social chapter forced upon us: our industry, workforce and national prosperity will benefit as a result. #Quote by Margaret Thatcher
Majors quotes by Hu Jintao
#117. China and the United States have major influence in international affairs and shoulder important responsibilities in upholding world peace and promoting common development. #Quote by Hu Jintao
Majors quotes by George Orwell
#118. The major problem of our time is the decay in the belief in personal immortality, and it cannot be dealt with while the average human being is either drudging like an ox or shivering in fear of the secret police ... How right [the working classes] are to realize that the belly comes before the soul, not in the scale of values but in point of time! #Quote by George Orwell
Majors quotes by Jalal Talabani
#119. Justice for the major perpetrators cannot be separated from the vindication of the rights of the individual victim. #Quote by Jalal Talabani
Majors quotes by Maureen Johnson
#120. Writing is one of the few careers for which you essentially train yourself, the other two major ones being juggling and pickpocketing. #Quote by Maureen Johnson
Majors quotes by John McEnroe
#121. No one cares about the Davis Cup. How many people know I won five Davis Cups and seven majors, but that I rarely played the Australian Open? #Quote by John McEnroe
Majors quotes by Brendon Burchard
#122. I have to laugh when I receive newsletters from major personalities and when you hit reply, you get a 'do-not-reply' address. It's ridiculous! Don't you want your customers to reply to you? #Quote by Brendon Burchard
Majors quotes by Demetri Martin
#123. I didn't do improv in college, I never performed, I didn't do theater either. I was in student government, I was a history major. #Quote by Demetri Martin
Majors quotes by Miriam Toews
#124. It was the first time that we had sort of articulated our major problem. She wanted to die and I wanted her to live and we were enemies who loved each other. #Quote by Miriam Toews
Majors quotes by J. A. Jance
#125. My major form of exercise is jumping to conclusions. #Quote by J. A. Jance
Majors quotes by Scott Adams
#126. 'Dilbert' became popular during the downsizing of the '90s, and job security was a major theme of the strip. #Quote by Scott Adams
Majors quotes by Sally Helgesen
#127. Our domestic lives reflect the major trend that dominates the consumer marketplace today: an ever-increasing emphasis on variety and choice ... we find ourselves inventing our lives as we go along, improvising in an effort to take advantage of the bewildering range of choices that we face. #Quote by Sally Helgesen
Majors quotes by Nick Offerman
#128. My wife, the actress Megan Mullally, was an English major at Northwestern University and loves fiction. Like so many things in my life, she curates things for me. For example, I have the daunting prospect of Donna Tartt's "The Goldfinch" waiting for me when I get through my current reading pile. #Quote by Nick Offerman
Majors quotes by Mitt Romney
#129. Let's take energy, for instance. I understand that in some industries, the input cost of energy is a major factor in whether an industry is going to locate in the United States or go elsewhere. So, when, at Bain Capital, we started a new steel company called Steel Dynamics in Indiana, the cost of energy was a very important factor to the success of that enterprise. #Quote by Mitt Romney
Majors quotes by Immanuel Wallerstein
#130. A second variety concentrated on presumed major transformations of the capitalist system as of some recent point in time, in which the whole earlier point of time served as a mythologized foil against which to treat the empirical reality of the present. #Quote by Immanuel Wallerstein
Majors quotes by Doris Kearns Goodwin
#131. As a consequence [of a closed economic circle], in 1912 there was not a single Irishman who sat on a single board of a major Boston bank. #Quote by Doris Kearns Goodwin
Majors quotes by Dick Cheney
#132. Well, we've got a major effort under way to try to educate everybody, to let them know we have a zero tolerance policy where sexual assault is involved. #Quote by Dick Cheney
Majors quotes by Uta Barth
#133. When I was sixteen and knew nothing about art, I sat through almost six hours of Andy Warhol's Empire. I did not understand it but thought: this is in a major museum, it must be important, what is going on here? I stayed until the museum closed. His Screen Test films are some of my favorite works made this century, but you need to give them back the time they took to be made. #Quote by Uta Barth
Majors quotes by Trick Daddy
#134. I told the truth about the Miami life. It's a nice place to visit, but you don't want to live here. I lived through two major riots and three Category 5 hurricanes, I don't know if a lot of people could say that. #Quote by Trick Daddy
Majors quotes by Ian Kershaw
#135. Hitler frequently demonstrated diffidence and unease in dealings with individuals which contrasted diametrically with his self-confident mastery in exploiting the emotions of his listeners in the theatrical setting of a major speech. #Quote by Ian Kershaw
Majors quotes by Kate Atkinson
#136. Why do cats sleep so much? Perhaps they've been trusted with some major cosmic task, an essential law of physics - such as: if there are less than 5 million cats sleeping at any one time the world will stop spinning. So that when you look at them and think, "what a lazy, good-for-nothing animal," they are, in fact, working very, very hard. #Quote by Kate Atkinson
Majors quotes by William Odom
#137. I remember serving in Vietnam in that war, and many of us at the major Lieutenant Colonel, colonel level were frustrated that no one in the U.S. wanted to debate it that way. #Quote by William Odom
Majors quotes by DJ Khaled
#138. Almond milk + cinnamon crunch = major key to success. #Quote by DJ Khaled
Majors quotes by Lee Majors
#139. I figured my body always would be able to repair itself. I think all of us believe that - until you begin to age and get hit with deteriorating joints. #Quote by Lee Majors
Majors quotes by Jane Pauley
#140. Your 40s are a major trough. About the age of 50, feelings of satisfaction begin to rebound and keep rising into your 50s, 60s and 70s, with health being a major factor. #Quote by Jane Pauley
Majors quotes by John Hersey
#141. My two major faults are that I row too long and pick up too many women #Quote by John Hersey
Majors quotes by Mandisa
#142. Music will always be a major part of my life, its my outlet, I'm in my element and I'm free. #Quote by Mandisa
Majors quotes by Robert Nozick
#143. I guess my tendency is to think essentially that the new wrinkles won't do the job if the old major idea didn't, and so you have to try something different. Then maybe they can all be combined in some coherent piece. #Quote by Robert Nozick
Majors quotes by Ron Perlman
#144. I've never been pigeonholed and I've experienced so many different kinds of skin - what man will do and won't do, what you should do and shouldn't do. This is what's exciting about being an actor; where philosophy majors sit in classrooms or write books about human behavior, we're actually acting them out in front of cameras. #Quote by Ron Perlman
Majors quotes by Retief Goosen
#145. I mean, to win a major, you've got to be a good player and you've got to get your breaks, as well, to win. #Quote by Retief Goosen
Majors quotes by Lee Majors
#146. I've never seen a schedule where you just go in two hours almost every day of the week and then all day on one day. Then you shoot it at night with an audience and you're out of there. #Quote by Lee Majors
Majors quotes by Lawrence Summers
#147. We are inheriting the worst financial system since the Depression. We're inheriting a situation - when people go back and study major banking crises a quarter century from now, the one that America developed in 2007 and 2008 is going to be one of those crises. #Quote by Lawrence Summers
Majors quotes by Joseph J. Romm
#148. In 2003 ... the White House conspired with an oil-company funded think tank to block a major government scientific report that sought to spell out the dangers of climate change to Americans. #Quote by Joseph J. Romm
Majors quotes by Joe Budden
#149. I was fortunate enough to have gone through the major label process and kind of have the inside scoop on some things, some information I wouldn't have normally had. To go from a major to an independent, I don't think it's an easy transition. #Quote by Joe Budden
Majors quotes by Anthony Hopkins
#150. I am a bit of a solitude person - a solitary personality. I like being on my own. I don't have any major friendships or relationships with people. #Quote by Anthony Hopkins
Majors quotes by Alex Rodriguez
#151. I want to be known as a good major-leaguer, and good major-leaguers work to become good. #Quote by Alex Rodriguez
Majors quotes by Bernie Sanders
#152. When the media worries about what Hillary's hair looks like or what my hair looks like, that's a real problem. We have millions of people who are struggling to keep their heads above water, who want to know what candidates can do to improve their lives, and the media will very often spend more time worrying about hair than the fact that we're the only major country on earth that doesn't guarantee health care to all people. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Majors quotes by Joseph Heller
#153. Whatever his elders told him to do, he did. They told him to look before he leaped, and he always looked before he leaped. They told him never to put off until the next day what he could do the day before, and he never did. He was told to honor his father and his mother, and he honored his father and his mother. He was told that he should not kill, and he did not kill, until he got into the Army. Then he was told to kill, and he killed. He turned the other cheek on every occasion and always did unto others exactly as he would have had others do unto him. When he gave to charity, his left hand never knew what his right hand was doing. He never once took the name of the Lord his God in vain, committed adultery or coveted his neighbor's ass. In fact, he loved his neighbor and never even bore false witness against him. Major Major's elders disliked him because he was such a flagrant nonconformist. #Quote by Joseph Heller
Majors quotes by Leslie Parrish
#154. With money come the tests. My bankruptcy, which at the time I thought was a disaster, turned out to be a major blessing. It taught me so much! Money is not only an isolator, but it's a magnet, too. It draws all kinds of people to you - you may not want them but it draws them to you anyway. The reverse of that, a bankruptcy, sends everybody away. #Quote by Leslie Parrish
Majors quotes by E. M. Forster
#155. It is pleasant to be transferred from an office where one is afraid of a sergeant-major into an office where one can intimidate generals, and perhaps this is why history is so attractive to the more timid among us. We can recover self-confidence by snubbing the dead. #Quote by E. M. Forster
Majors quotes by Janet Yellen
#156. [A] major source of wealth for many families is financial assets, including stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and private pensions ... the wealthiest 5 percent of households held nearly two-thirds of all such assets in 2013 #Quote by Janet Yellen
Majors quotes by Tom Brokaw
#157. Established a thriving medical practice and was a fixture at our high school sports games. He never spoke to any of us of the horrors he had seen. When one of his sons wore as a casual jacket one of Doc Auld's Army coats with the major's insignia still attached, I remember thinking, #Quote by Tom Brokaw
Majors quotes by Peter Drucker
#158. If a business is to be considered a continuous process, instead of a series of disjointed stop-and-go events, then the economic universe in which a business operates-and all the major events within it-must have rhyme, rhythm, or reason. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Majors quotes by Matteo Manassero
#159. I am very proud of what I have done since I turned professional. It's been great to become the first teenager to win three times, to have played in some Majors and the Masters, and to have twice broken into the world's top 50 and stayed there for a bit of time. #Quote by Matteo Manassero
Majors quotes by Nik Wallenda
#160. I'm always looking for the next major hurdle and doing something that the world has never seen. #Quote by Nik Wallenda
Majors quotes by John Lydon
#161. I have one major problem with the Internet: It's full of liars. #Quote by John Lydon
Majors quotes by Jared Diamond
#162. Our biggest threat is not an asteroid about to crash into us, something we can do nothing about. Instead, all the major threats facing us today are problems entirely of our own making. And since we made the problems, we can also solve the problems. #Quote by Jared Diamond
Majors quotes by Paul Copan
#163. Today religion is increasingly pushed aside by secularizing influences such as the university, the media, and politics. Rather than having a major voice in public life, religion has been relegated to the private and the personal. #Quote by Paul Copan
Majors quotes by Kami Garcia
#164. I start with a beat sheet, which is more of an abbreviated outline. It hits all the major plot points. From there, I move to note cards. But the most important part of my process is my inspiration board. #Quote by Kami Garcia
Majors quotes by Peter Cundill
#165. There is almost always a major blip for whatever reason and we have learnt to expect it and not to panic. #Quote by Peter Cundill
Majors quotes by Julian Baggini
#166. You should protest about the views of people you disagree with over major moral issues, and argue them down, but you should not try to silence them, however repugnant you find them. That is the bitter pill free speech requires us to swallow. #Quote by Julian Baggini
Majors quotes by George H. Smith
#167. The third major characteristic of God - "infinitude" - is the catchall, the universal modifier of Christian theology. God is not merely a being; he is infinite being. God is not merely good; he is infinite goodness. God is not merely wise; he is infinite wisdom. And so on down the list. God is exaggeration run amuck. #Quote by George H. Smith
Majors quotes by Abraham Verghese
#168. Rituals, anthropologists will tell us, are about transformation. The rituals we use for marriage, baptism or inaugurating a president are as elaborate as they are because we associate the ritual with a major life passage, the crossing of a critical threshold, or in other words, with transformation. #Quote by Abraham Verghese
Majors quotes by Denis Waitley
#169. Don't be a time manager, be a priority manager. Cut your major goals into bite-sized pieces. Each small priority or requirement on the way to ultimate goal become a mini goal in itself. #Quote by Denis Waitley
Majors quotes by Umar
#170. I am surprised at three things: 1. [A] man runs from death while death is inevitable. 2. One sees minor faults in others, yet overlooks his own major faults. 3. When there is any defect to one's cattle he tries to cure it, but does not cure his own defects. #Quote by Umar
Majors quotes by Heidi Cullinan
#171. Skylar laughed a lot in these scenes. He was happy. He was always helping people too - a whole section depicted him playing hero to the art majors as they gazed at him adoringly, and Xander glowered jealously on the sidelines. That made Skylar laugh in real life. There were so many scenes of him helping people. He was Mr. Friendly, according to Xander.
This was such a better painting.
This was how Xander saw him?
This was beautiful.
This is who I want to be instead.
"I love this," Skylar said as Xander cleaned his brush.
"Oh, I'm not done."
Xander got out a small round brush and reached for the pink.
He began to paint delicate, beautiful cherry blossoms all over Skylar's body.
There was writing too - Xander explained each kanji to him, that they meant he was magnificent, sensitive, sensual, artistic, charming, loyal, steadfast - he lost track of the words
because while they were wonderful and the script breathtaking, it was the blossoms that did him in. He sees me as a cherry tree. A blooming, beautiful cherry tree.
Skylar sobbed.
"I love you," Skylar cried, trying not to spill tears because Xander was painting cherry blossoms across his face.
"I love you too, my sakura. #Quote by Heidi Cullinan
Majors quotes by Barack Obama
#172. Every major world religion has identified marriage as between a man and a woman. #Quote by Barack Obama
Majors quotes by Yoshijiro Umezu
#173. I can say with confidence that we will be able to destroy the major part of an invading force. #Quote by Yoshijiro Umezu
Majors quotes by Liz Carpenter
#174. A major advantage of age is learning to accept people without passing judgment. #Quote by Liz Carpenter
Majors quotes by Robert M. Sapolsky
#175. If I had to define a major depression in a single sentence, I would describe it as a genetic/neurochemical disorder requiring a strong environmental trigger whose characteristic manifestation is an inability to appreciate sunsets. #Quote by Robert M. Sapolsky
Majors quotes by Willie Aames
#176. This show has been a major revitalization of my family life and personal life. It gave my family an avenue to speak to me honestly. #Quote by Willie Aames
Majors quotes by L. Neil Smith
#177. We're all a bunch of badminton birdies who just got batted from the Republican side of the court to the Democrat side. We'll eventually get batted back again, of course, unless libertarians can manage to do something about it. If your principal concern, like mine, is freedom, there's absolutely no discernable difference between the two 'majors,' and for all practical purposes, they're one big party the Boot On Your Neck party pretending to be two. #Quote by L. Neil Smith
Majors quotes by Dick Cheney
#178. You can't fall back on the private sector and say, 'You take care of the nation's banking system.' That's a fundamental function of the government, the Federal Reserve, the Treasury and the FDIC, etc. All of those agencies have a major role to play there. #Quote by Dick Cheney
Majors quotes by Jim Lee
#179. Not everyone reads comics, although most people know the major superheroes, but the majority of people play video games. #Quote by Jim Lee
Majors quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#180. I see all this talk about jobs going overseas as a symptom of the absence of innovation. And the absence of innovation is a symptom of there being no major national priority to advance a frontier. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Majors quotes by Kevin Rudd
#181. It is unlikely that you'll have anything emerge from MEF (Major Economies Forum) by way of detailed programmatic specificity. #Quote by Kevin Rudd
Majors quotes by C. Wright Mills
#182. Power is not of a man. Wealth does not center in the person of the wealthy. Celebrity is not inherent in any personality. To be celebrated, to be wealthy, to have power requires access to major institutions. #Quote by C. Wright Mills
Majors quotes by Adam Arkin
#183. I'm always honored, but I think for every 100 of those that come along, one of them is actually going to happen. And, the fact that this was an offer on a major film that had a start date, was pretty impressive. #Quote by Adam Arkin
Majors quotes by Marco Rubio
#184. When I got to the Senate, one of the things that most bothered me is this lack of urgency about the major issues. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Majors quotes by Nicholas Negroponte
#185. While a significant part of learning certain comes from teaching - but good teaching and by good teachers - a major measure comes from exploration, from reinventing the wheel and finding out for oneself. #Quote by Nicholas Negroponte
Majors quotes by Albert Einstein
#186. Modern education is competitive, nationalistic and separative. It has trained the child to regard material values as of major importance, to believe that his nation is also of major importance and superior to other nations and peoples. The general level of world information is high but usually biased, influenced by national prejudices, serving to make us citizens of our nation but not of the world. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Majors quotes by Harold Leavitt
#187. We cling to hierarchies because our place in a hierarchy is, rightly or wrongly, a major indicator of our social worth. #Quote by Harold Leavitt
Majors quotes by Muhammad Yunus
#188. Health care can be made more affordable for the poor without requiring major new scientific developments, just the smart application of current technologies. We have seen a $25 incubator and diagnostic instruments that are built tough, cheap, and reusable for the developing world. #Quote by Muhammad Yunus
Majors quotes by John Scott
#189. The true experimenters are there but no-one hears about them - the critical/review system tends to concentrate on the handful of 'major' writers and their promising successors; bookshops tend not to sell them; publishers don't promote them. It's the same fate as has befallen poetry. #Quote by John Scott
Majors quotes by Camille Paglia
#190. Over the past 20 years, I have noticed that the most flexible, dynamic, inquisitive minds among my students have been industrial design majors. Industrial designers are bracingly free of ideology and cant. The industrial designer is trained to be a clear-eyed observer of the commercial world - which, like it or not, is modern reality. #Quote by Camille Paglia
Majors quotes by Marc Faber
#191. Our best long-term and intermediate cycles suggest another slowdown and stock crash accelerating between very early 2014 and early 2015, and possibly lasting well into 2015 or even 2016. The worst economic trends due to demographics will hit between 2014 and 2019. The U.S. economy is likely to suffer a minor or major crash by early 2015 and another between late 2017 and late 2019 or early 2020 at the latest. #Quote by Marc Faber
Majors quotes by Isaac Watts
#192. In common discourse we denominate persons and things according to the major part of their character; he is to be called a wise man who has but few follies. #Quote by Isaac Watts
Majors quotes by Thomas Lennon
#193. The best thing that happened during the filming of Out Cold is that I forged a friendship with Lee Majors that endured for almost 12 weeks. #Quote by Thomas Lennon
Majors quotes by T. Harv Eker
#194. How do you want to live your life? How do you want to play the game? Do you want to play in the big leagues or in the little leagues, in the majors or the minors? Are you going to play big or play small? It's your choice. #Quote by T. Harv Eker
Majors quotes by James E. Webb
#195. Our attainments [in space] are a major element in the competition between the Soviet system and our own ... in this sense, [they] are part of the battle along the fluid front of the cold war. #Quote by James E. Webb
Majors quotes by Mike Fitzpatrick
#196. She'll be evaluated like any other Double-A umpire. Major League Baseball has never attempted to influence our decision #Quote by Mike Fitzpatrick
Majors quotes by Adolf Hitler
#197. The Big Lie is a major untruth uttered frequently by leaders as a means of duping and controlling the constituency. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Majors quotes by Leonard Mlodinow
#198. When we are in the grasp of illusion – or, for that matter, whenever we have a new idea – instead of searching for ways to prove our ideas wrong, we usually attempt to prove them correct. Psychologists call this the confirmation bias, and it presents a major impediment of our ability to break free from the misinterpretation of randomness. #Quote by Leonard Mlodinow
Majors quotes by Garry Kasparov
#199. I'm still number one and I just recently won a major tournament ahead of my toughest rivals so I think I had a few years ahead of me if I decided to stay. #Quote by Garry Kasparov
Majors quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#200. While I was raised around churches and had gotten to know a few preachers fairly well, the thought never entered my head that I would one day stand and deliver. Not only was I not interested, I lived with a major struggle: I stuttered. #Quote by Charles R. Swindoll
