Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Ove Arup
#1. When engineers and quantity surveyors discuss aesthetics and architects study what cranes do we are on the right road. #Quote by Ove Arup
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Isambard Kingdom Brunel
#2. Aeroplanes are not designed by science, but by art in spite of some pretence and humbug to the contrary. I do not mean to suggest that engineering can do without science, on the contrary, it stands on scientific foundations, but there is a big gap between scientific research and the engineering product which has to be bridged by the art of the engineer. #Quote by Isambard Kingdom Brunel
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Naomi Klein
#3. The American Society of Civil Engineers said in 2007 that the U.S. had fallen so far behind in maintaining its public infrastructure
roads, bridges, schools, dams
that it would take more than a trillion and half dollars over five years to bring it back up to standard. Instead, these types of expenditures are being cut back. At the same time, public infrastructure around the world is facing unprecedented stress, with hurricanes, cyclones, floods and forest fires all increasing in frequency and intensity. It's easy to imagine a future in which growing numbers of cities have their frail and long-neglected infrastructures knocked out by disasters and then are left to rot, their core services never repaired or rehabilitated. The well-off, meanwhile, will withdraw into gated communities, their needs met by privatized providers. #Quote by Naomi Klein
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Bernard Amadei
#4. As I've looked into the eyes of street children in Afghanistan desperate for a future other than terrorism, or children in Rwanda hungry for something greater than genocide, I've reached one big conclusion: we belong to one another. And children across the Earth deserve the same hopes and opportunities we give our children here."-->Bernard Amadei, civil engineering professor at the University of Colorado and founder of Engineers Without Borders #Quote by Bernard Amadei
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by John Prebble
#5. Architects and engineers are among the most fortunate of men since they build their own monuments with public consent, public approval and often public money. #Quote by John Prebble
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Henry Royce
#6. Strive for perfection in everything you do. Take the best that exists and make it better. When it does not exist, design it. #Quote by Henry Royce
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Albert Einstein
#7. Scientists investigate that which already is; Engineers create that which has never been. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Ove Arup
#8. Engineering problems are under-defined, there are many solutions, good, bad and indifferent. The art is to arrive at a good solution. This is a creative activity, involving imagination, intuition and deliberate choice. #Quote by Ove Arup
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Tom Clancy
#9. Therefore, to you, and to the fifty governors, I have a request. Please, do not send me politicians. We do not have the time to do the things that must be done through that process. I need people who do real things in the real world. I need people who do not want to live in Washington. I need people who will not try to work the system. I need people who will come here at great personal sacrifice to do an important job, and then return home to their normal lives. I want engineers who know how things are built. I want physicians who know how to make sick people well. I want cops who know what it means when your civil rights are violated by a criminal. I want farmers who grow real food on real farms. I want people who know what it's like to have dirty hands, and pay a mortgage bill, and raise kids, and worry about the future. I want people who know they're working for you and not themselves. That's what I want. That's what I need. I think that's what a lot of you want, too. #Quote by Tom Clancy
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Isambard Kingdom Brunel
#10. If the Commission is to enquire into the conditions "to be observed," it is to be presumed that they will give the result of their enquiries; or, in other words, that they will lay down, or at least suggest, "rules" and "conditions to be (hereafter) observed" in the construction of bridges, or, in other words, embarrass and shackle the progress of improvement to-morrow by recording and registering as law the prejudices or errors of to-day. [Objecting to any interference by the State with the freedom of civil engineers in the conduct of their professional work.] #Quote by Isambard Kingdom Brunel
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by S. Paul Kashap

Civil engineering lab testing equipments square measured and utilized by civil engineers. #Quote by S. Paul Kashap
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Matthew Zorich
#12. We are lost; waiting tables at Denny's or forgetting ourselves stripping on poles, or working at a coffee shop misplaced in history or slowly dying on the inside as a secretary or landscaping lawns out of desperation working jobs with no futures, like bartending. The next generation of teachers, historians, lawyers, police officers and civil engineers work at this bar because the money can not be passed up, when you're drowning in debt. The world brings us to our knees and we service it because it nourishes us just enough to get by. We are tired and we don't understand why. We, the over educated searching for happiness at the bottom of the bottle. #Quote by Matthew Zorich
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by William Blake
#13. Improvement makes strait roads, but the crooked roads without Improvement, are roads of Genius. #Quote by William Blake
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Oscar Wilde
#14. An optimist will tell you the glass is half-full; the pessimist, half-empty; and the engineer will tell you the glass is twice the size it needs to be. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Ed Rendell
#15. The I-95 bridges were built in the early 1960s and are now more than 50 years old. The same vintage as the I-35 bridge that collapsed in Minnesota back in 2007, killing 13 people and injuring 145. The antiquated Skagit River Bridge in Washington state that collapsed last May after a truck hit one of the trusses was even older. And it's not just bridges. According to the American Society of Civil Engineers, 32 percent of the major roads in America are now in poor condition and in need of major repairs. #Quote by Ed Rendell
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by J. Allen Hynek
#16. When one gets reports from scientists, engineers and technicians whose credibility by all common standards is high and whose moral caliber seems to preclude a hoax, one can do no less than hear them out, in all seriousness. #Quote by J. Allen Hynek
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Julian Assange
#17. The received wisdom in advanced capitalist societies is that there still exists an organic "civil society sector" in which institutions form autonomously and come together to manifest the interests and will of citizens. The fable has it that the boundaries of this sector are respected by actors from government and the "private sector," leaving a safe space for NGOs and nonprofits to advocate for things like human rights, free speech, and accountable government.

This sounds like a great idea. But if it was ever true, it has not been for decades. Since at least the 1970s, authentic actors like unions and churches have folded under a sustained assault by free-market statism, transforming "civil society" into a buyer's market for political factions and corporate interests looking to exert influence at arm's length. The last forty years have seen a huge proliferation of think tanks and political NGOs whose purpose, beneath all the verbiage, is to execute political agendas by proxy. #Quote by Julian Assange
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Susan Richards Shreve
#18. Now. 1973. Exactly." He tipped back in his chair, his arms folded across his chest. "So much changed in the sixties, the war, the rights of women, civil rights, the vote, protest against the war. On and on. I was getting my Ph.D. in Chicago and you were in college but that time was upheaval with a purpose. Now we've drawn back into our shells, wondering what we have done and what do we believe.? And is there any purpose to our lives? #Quote by Susan Richards Shreve
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Sara Paretsky
#19. This was a very progressive group of clergy who foresaw the race riots that were going to take place when Dr. King started helping the local civil rights community push for open housing. They were sort of hoping against hope that we could educate kids in a way that could counter some of the racist messages they were imbibing at home. I don't know whether we did any good, but it changed my life in every single way. #Quote by Sara Paretsky
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by David Leslie
#20. It will be hard work. It's always hard work, and hard work from everybody within the team - technical director, mechanics, drivers, engineers - everyone in the team. #Quote by David Leslie
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Erik Von Kuehnelt-Leddihn
#21. Modifying Clausewitz' aphorism - war is the continuation of diplomacy by other means - one could say that in ideologically divided countries civil war is but the continuation of parliamentarism with other means. #Quote by Erik Von Kuehnelt-Leddihn
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#22. Beware the engineers of society, I say, who would make everyone in all the world equal. Opportunitty should be equal, must be equal, but achievement must remain individual.
- Drizzt Do'Urden #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Toni Morrison
#23. The complexity of the so-called individual that's been praised for decades in America somehow has narrowed itself to the 'me'. When I was a young girl we were called citizens – American citizens. We were second-class citizens, but that was the word. In the 50s and 60s they started calling us consumers. So we did – consume. Now they don't use those words any more – it's the American taxpayer and those are different attitudes. #Quote by Toni Morrison
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Andrew Aydin
#24. Most students graduate from high school knowing nine words about the civil rights movement: Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, and "I Have a Dream." And that's it! #Quote by Andrew Aydin
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Stasi Eldredge
#25. You see, women have been essential to every great move of God. Yes, Moses led the Isaelites out of Egypt, but only after his mother risked her life to save him! Closer to our time, Clara Barton was instrumental in starting the Red Cross. Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin put fire into people's heart to end slavery in the United States. Rosa Parks kicked the Civil Rights movement into gear with her quiet act of courage. Eunice Kennedy Shriver created the Special Olympics. Mother Teresa inspired the world by bringing love to countless thought unlovable. And millions of other women quietly change the world every day by bringing the love of God to those around them. #Quote by Stasi Eldredge
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Albert Einstein
#26. Racism is a disease of white people #Quote by Albert Einstein
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Aristotle.
#27. For when people do not keep watch over the commons, it is destroyed. It results, then, that they fall into civil faction, compelling one another by force and not wishing to do what is just themselves. #Quote by Aristotle.
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Rabih Alameddine
#28. America entered the Lebanese Civil War. It paid the price. Two hundred marines were killed by one Shiite. Reagan pulled the troops and avoided discussing Lebanon. Lebanon, like AIDS, was hardly ever mentioned by our president. #Quote by Rabih Alameddine
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Alfred-Maurice De Zayas
#29. Respect for human rights requires transparent and accountable institutions and governance as well as the effective participation of all individuals and civil society, who are an essential part of realizing social and people-centred sustainable development. #Quote by Alfred-Maurice De Zayas
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Sergei Lavrov
#30. When Ukrainians kill Ukrainians, I believe this is as close to a civil war as you can get. #Quote by Sergei Lavrov
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Isaac Penington
#31. It is not the different practice from one another that breaks the Peace and Unity, but judging of one another because of differing practices. #Quote by Isaac Penington
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Yanni Alexander Loukissas
#32. These comments recall Turkle's distinction between two kinds of "transparency" in technological cultures. Modernist transparency is the notion that users can and should have access to the inner workings of a technology. It evokes the aesthetic of early relationships with cars in which one could "open the hood and see inside." Turkle contrasts this with an opposing, post-modern meaning of the term - the notion that something is transparent if you can use it without knowing how it works. Post-modern transparency allows the user to navigate the surface of a system without ever having to access its underlying mechanics. Are young engineers more susceptible to post-modern ways of seeing simulation? #Quote by Yanni Alexander Loukissas
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by William Faulkner
#33. Battles lost not alone because of superior numbers and failing ammunition and stores, but because of generals who should not have been generals, who were generals not through training in contemporary methods or aptitude for learning them, but by the divine right to say 'Go there' conferred upon them by an absolute caste system #Quote by William Faulkner
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Bernice Johnson Reagon
#34. I think the Civil Rights Movement changed that trajectory for me. The first thing I did was leave school. I was suspended for my participation in Movement demonstrations in my hometown, December, 1961. #Quote by Bernice Johnson Reagon
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Pat Robertson
#35. When any civil government steps outside the mandate authorized by God Almighty, then that government does not have any further claim over its citizens. #Quote by Pat Robertson
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Lyz Lenz
#36. The store beneath is a kind of junk store - the windows are filled with plastic dolls, a wooden chair draped with beads and a large Confederate flag hanging in the background. Illinois, billed "the Land of Lincoln," was firmly in the Union during the Civil War. That flag is not there for even superficial history reasons. It's there as a symbol. #Quote by Lyz Lenz
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by William H. Seward
#37. It would be contrary to the spirit of the American Government to use force to subjugate the South. #Quote by William H. Seward
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Harri Holkeri
#38. In Finland, we learned quite a lot from our own civil war. The wounds were visible when I was a boy, but my generation went into the Second World War and it united the Finnish nation, so I do not see any more wounds. #Quote by Harri Holkeri
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by James Madison
#39. We maintain therefore that in matters of Religion, no man's right is abridged by the institution of Civil Society, and that Religion is wholly exempt from its cognizance. True it is, that no other rule exists, by which any question which may divide a Society, can be ultimately determined, but the will of the majority; but it is also true, that the majority may trespass on the rights of the minority.

...Because it is proper to take alarm at the first experiment on our liberties. We hold this prudent jealousy to be the first duty of Citizens, and one of the noblest characteristics of the late Revolution. The free men of America did not wait till usurped power had strengthened itself by exercise, and entangled the question in precedents. They saw all the consequences in the principle, and they avoided the consequences by denying the principle. We revere this lesson too much soon to forget it. Who does not see that the same authority which can establish Christianity, in exclusion of all other Religions, may establish with the same ease any particular sect of Christians, in exclusion of all other Sects? that the same authority which can force a citizen to contribute three pence only of his property for the support of any one establishment, may force him to conform to any other establishment in all cases whatsoever?

...Because experience witnesseth that ecclesiastical establishments, instead of maintaining the purity and efficacy of Religion, have had a contra #Quote by James Madison
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#40. Religion regards civil liberty as a noble exercise of man's faculties, the world of politics being a sphere intended by the Creator for the free play of intelligence. Religion, being free and powerful within its own sphere and content with the position reserved for it, realized that its sway is all the better established because it relies only on its own powers and rules men's hearts without external support.
Freedom sees religion as the companion of its struggles and triumphs, the cradle of its infancy, and the divine source of its rights. Religion is considered as the guardian of mores, and mores are regarded as the guarantee of the laws and pledge for the maintenance of freedom itself. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Cesar Chavez
#41. When poor people get involved in a long conflict, such as a strike or a civil rights drive, and the pressure increases each day, there is a deep need for spiritual advice. Without it, we see families crumble, leadership weaken, and hard workers grow tired. #Quote by Cesar Chavez
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#42. The opinions of men should not be the object of any government. Our civil rights are no more dependent on our religious beliefs than they are dependent upon our thoughts about geometry or physics! #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Robert E.Lee
#43. We failed, but in the good providence of God apparent failure often proves a blessing. #Quote by Robert E.Lee
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Mark Morneweg
#44. The one young officer swung his horse around, came
back, and leaned over into Penthe's face.
She did not look at him.
"Are you free, Miss?"
"I am free. Free from everyone, but my lover. He has
stolen my heart and soul forever. #Quote by Mark Morneweg
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Constance Baker Motley
#45. King consciously steered away from legal claims and instead relied on civil disobedience. #Quote by Constance Baker Motley
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Anne Applebaum
#46. If the immediate postwar period had been characterized by violent attacks on the existing institutions of civil society, after 1948 the regimes [of Eastern Europe] began instead to create a new system of state-controlled schools and mass organizations which would envelop their citizens from the moment of birth. Once inside this totalitarian system, it was assumed, the citizens of of the communist states would never want or be able to leave it. They were meant to become, in the sarcastic phrasing of an old Soviet dissident, members of the species Homo sovieticus, Soviet man. Not only would Homo Sovieticus never oppose communism; he could never even conceive of opposing communism. #Quote by Anne Applebaum
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Walter Isaacson
#47. His goal was to be vigilant against " the bozo explosion" that leads to a company's being larded with second rate talent:

For most things in life, the range between best and average is 30% or so. The best airplane flight, the best meal, they may be 30% better than your average one. What I saw with Woz was somebody who was fifty times better than the average engineer. He could have meetings in his head. The Mac team was an attempt to build a whole team like that, A players. People said they wouldn't get along, they'd hate working with each other. But I realized that A players like to work with A players, they just didn't like working with C players. At Pixar, it was a whole company of A players. When I got back to Apple, that's what I decided to try to do. You need to have a collaborative hiring process. When we hire someone, even if they're going to be in marketing, I will have them talk to the design folks and the engineers. My role model was J. Robert Oppenheimer. I read about the type of people he sought for the atom bomb project. I wasn't nearly as good as he was, but that's what I aspired to do. #Quote by Walter Isaacson
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#48. So, we have an element newly prominent in American religious and political life, a new form of entitlement, a self-declared elect. What some have seen as a resurgence of Christianity, or at least a bold defense of American cultural tradition - even as another great awakening! - has brought a harshness, a bitterness, a crudeness, and a high-handedness into the public sphere that are only to be compared to the politics, or the collapse of politics, in the period before the Civil War. Its self-righteousness fuels the damnedest things - I use the word advisedly - notably the acquisition of homicidal weapons. I wonder what these supposed biblicists find in the Gospels or the Epistles that could begin to excuse any of it. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Mcgiffert Civil Engineers quotes by William Shakespeare
#49. The breaking of so great a thing should make
A greater crack: the round world
Should have shook lions into civil streets,
And citizens to their dens. #Quote by William Shakespeare
