Method quotes by Wanda Buckner
#1. Healing is about choices - choices to treat or not to treat, to
choose one type of intervention over another, or to choose one
method of treatment in conjunction with another. One choice does not eliminate all other possibilities.
You can choose and choose again. The most important
choice is the decision to heal; all else follows. #Quote by Wanda Buckner
Method quotes by William Poundstone
#2. Carl Friedrich Gauss, often rated the greatest mathematician of all time, played the market. On a salary of 1,000 thalers a year, Euler left an estate of 170,587 thalers in cash and securities. Nothing is known of Gauss's investment methods. #Quote by William Poundstone
Method quotes by Paul Carus
#3. The truth us that other systems of geometry are possible, yet after all, these other systems are not spaces but other methods of space measurements. There is one space only, though we may conceive of many different manifolds, which are contrivances or ideal constructions invented for the purpose of determining space. #Quote by Paul Carus
Method quotes by Oliver Goldsmith
#4. To be poor, and to seem poor, is a certain method never to rise. #Quote by Oliver Goldsmith
Method quotes by Virginie Despentes
#5. Porn is also the method men use to imagine what they would do if they were women, how they would apply themselves to satisfy other men, what good sluts they'd be, what prick-devourers. #Quote by Virginie Despentes
Method quotes by Gautama Buddha
#6. Those who attempt to conquer hatred by hatred are like warriors who take weapons to overcome others who bear arms. This does not end hatred, but gives it room to grow. But, ancient wisdom has advocated a different timeless strategy to overcome hatred. This eternal wisdom is to meet hatred with non-hatred. The method of trying to conquer hatred through hatred never succeeds in overcoming hatred. But, the method of overcoming hatred through non-hatred is eternally effective. That is why that method is described as eternal wisdom. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Method quotes by Oscar Wilde
#7. Is insincerity such a terrible thing? I think not. It is merely a method by which we can multiply our personalities. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Method quotes by Frederick Lenz
#8. The planes of light exist. Yoga is a method of unifying the energies of the body, the mind, and the spirit and directing them towards infinity, the planes of light. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Method quotes by Murray N. Rothbard
#9. The great German sociologist Franz Oppenheimer pointed out that there are two mutually exclusive ways of acquiring wealth; one, the above way of production and exchange, he called the "economic means." The other way is simpler in that it does not require productivity; it is the way of seizure of another's goods or services by the use of force and violence. This is the method of one-sided confiscation, of theft of the property of others. This is the method which Oppenheimer termed "the political means" to wealth. #Quote by Murray N. Rothbard
Method quotes by Yongey Mingyur
#10. ...I began to see that when the pace of external of material progress exceeded the development of inner knowledge, people seemed to suffer deep emotional conflicts without any internal method of dealing with them. An abundance of material items provides such a variety of external distractions that peolpe lose the connection ito their inner lives. #Quote by Yongey Mingyur
Method quotes by Jane Austen
#11. Persuaded as Miss Bingley was that Darcy admired Elizabeth, this was not the best method of recommending herself; but angry people are not always wise; #Quote by Jane Austen
Method quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#12. Since satyagraha is a method of conversion and conviction, it seeks never to use the slightest coercion. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Method quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#13. Method will teach you to win time. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Method quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#14. The greatest part of our faults are more excusable than the methods that are commonly taken to conceal them. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Method quotes by Method Man
#15. I've got more creative control when I do music. #Quote by Method Man
Method quotes by Tommy Wonder
#16. We should never allow presentation to become a casualty of method. #Quote by Tommy Wonder
Method quotes by Nicole Kidman
#17. I do research. I do emotional sort of Method work. Somehow it's a huge mishmash of things that becomes my own acting process and my own way of navigating through something. But ultimately the desire is to be honest, and for that truth to bleed through into your work and onto the screen. #Quote by Nicole Kidman
Method quotes by R.D. Laing
#18. It seems also that the preferred method of attack on the other is based on the same principle as the attack felt to be implicit in the other's relationship to oneself. Thus, the man who is frightened of his own subjectivity being swamped, impinged upon, or congealed by the other is frequently to be found attempting to swamp, to impinge upon, or to kill the other person's subjectivity. #Quote by R.D. Laing
Method quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#19. CLERGYMAN, n. A man who undertakes the management of our spiritual affairs as a method of better his temporal ones. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Method quotes by Tom Rob Smith
#20. Let me quickly remind you that the allegation of being mentally incapable is a tried and tested method of silencing women dating back hundreds of years, a weapon to discredit us when we fought against abuses and stood up to authority. #Quote by Tom Rob Smith
Method quotes by H. P. Blavatsky
#21. The myths," says Horace in his Ars Poetica, "have been invented by wise men to strengthen the laws and teach moral truths." While Horace endeavored to make clear the very spirit and essence of the ancient myths, Euhemerus pretended, on the contrary, that "myths were the legendary history of kings and heroes, transformed into gods by the admiration of the nations." It is the latter method which was inferentially followed by Christians when they agreed upon the acceptation of euhemerized patriarchs, and mistook them for men who had really lived. #Quote by H. P. Blavatsky
Method quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#22. Only he who finds empiricism irksome is driven to method. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Method quotes by Honore De Balzac
#23. A line is a method of expressing the effect of light upon an object; but there are no lines in Nature, everything is solid. We draw by modeling, that is to say, that we disengage an object from its setting; the distribution of the light alone gives to a body the appearance by which we know it. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Method quotes by Charles E. Gannon
#24. Because in the Renaissance, broadly integrative thought was at a premium; empirical method was in its infancy. Now, with the tools of measurement so highly refined, we produce lots of narrow specialists but fewer expansive thinkers." "Well, #Quote by Charles E. Gannon
Method quotes by Carice Van Houten
#25. I don't do method acting. If I play a farmer, I'm not gonna spend 3 weeks on a chicken farm. That's a bit too much for me. #Quote by Carice Van Houten
Method quotes by Bertrand Russell
#26. But even when a man has offended against his own rational code, I doubt whether a sense of sin is the best method of arriving at a better way of life. There is in the sense of sin something abject, something lacking in self-respect. No good was ever done to any one by the loss of self-respect. The rational man will regard his own undesirable acts, as he regards those of others, as acts produced by certain circumstances, and to be avoided either by a fuller realization that they are undesirable, or, where this is possible, by avoidance of the circumstances that caused them. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Method quotes by Bill Viola
#27. One of the most important things for me in terms of my working method is doubt. I get very insecure about my ideas. And I don't say 'insecure' in kind of a paranoid way. I mean just: 'Are they good enough?' 'Is this the right thing to do?' I really beat myself up over that. #Quote by Bill Viola
Method quotes by Leanne Waters
#28. If I had the capacity to withstand instantaneous physical pain, I think I would have even considered taking a razor to my leg. Because after so long of living in that hole, I would have rather felt pain than nothing at all; I just wanted to feel something again. You reach a milestone in such illnesses when denial lifts and you realize that the things you do are truly damaging both to yourself and to others. By then, however, you learn to not care and you embrace the notion that this method of self-harming is both deserved and satisfying. #Quote by Leanne Waters
Method quotes by Ada Lovelace
#29. The method of differences is, in fact, a method of additions; and as it includes within its means a larger number of results attainable by addition simply, than any other mathematical principle, it was very appropriately selected as the basis on which to construct an Adding Machine, so as to give to the powers of such a machine the widest possible range. #Quote by Ada Lovelace
Method quotes by Philip E. Agre
#30. Conservatism is constitutionally opposed to public reason, and this explains the abandon with which so many conservative pundits embrace flagrant simulations of reason, constructed through the methods of public relations, and exhibit so little regard for the real thing. #Quote by Philip E. Agre
Method quotes by Sun Tzu
#31. By method and discipline are to be understood the marshaling of the army in its proper subdivisions, the graduations of rank among the officers, the maintenance of roads by which supplies may reach the army, and the control of military expenditure. #Quote by Sun Tzu
Method quotes by Italo Calvino
#32. The close-up has no equivalent in a narrative fashioned of words. Literature is totally lacking in any working method to enable it to isolate a single vastly enlarged detail in which one face comes forward to underline a state of mind or stress the importance of a single detail in comparison with the rest. As a narrative device, the ability to vary the distance between the camera and the object may be a small thing indeed, but it makes for a notable difference between cinema and oral or written narrative, in which the distance between language and image is always the same. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Method quotes by Mary C. Lamia
#33. Volatile expressions of anger and hostility combined with a tendency to blame others often result from feeling shame ... If you are shame-prone, any accusation directed at you, regardless of how mildly it may be delivered, has the potential to make you feel that you have failed or that you are inadequate. Rather than simply admit wrongdoing, you get angry and accusatory in order to hold yourself blameless. Using anger or hostility for self-protection hides your vulnerability and needs. Unfortunately, since most people are repelled by an angry response, this method may be effective.
Your anger may drive away the very people who should know your real feelings, and it may deprive you of the opportunity to allow others to be aware of your needs. Behaving in an offensive or frightening way toward others can cause them to retreat out of fear. But, actually, the fear is your own, which you have turned against someone else in the form of anger. #Quote by Mary C. Lamia
Method quotes by Mario Livio
#34. Computer scientist and author Douglas R. Hofstadter phrased this succinctly in his fantastic book Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid: "Provability is a weaker notion than truth." In this sense, there will never be a formal method of determining for every mathematical proposition whether it is absolutely true, any more than there is a way to determine whether a theory in physics is absolutely true. Oxford's mathematical physicist Roger Penrose is among those who believe that Godel's theorems argue powerfully for the very existence of a Platonic mathematical world. #Quote by Mario Livio
Method quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#35. The literal mind is baffled by the ironic one, demanding explanations that only intensify the joke. A vintage example, and one that really did occur, is that of P.G. Wodehouse, captured by accident during the German invasion of France in 1940. Josef Goebbels's propaganda bureaucrats asked him to broadcast on Berlin radio, which he incautiously agreed to do, and his first transmission began:
Young men starting out in life often ask me - "How do you become an internee?" Well, there are various ways. My own method was to acquire a villa in northern France and wait for the German army to come along. This is probably the simplest plan. You buy the villa and the German army does the rest.
Somebody - it would be nice to know who, I hope it was Goebbels - must have vetted this and decided to let it go out as a good advertisement for German broad-mindedness. The "funny" thing is that the broadcast landed Wodehouse in an infinity of trouble with the British authorities, representing a nation that prides itself above all on a sense of humor. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Method quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#36. Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Method quotes by Mark Driscoll
#37. The truths of Christianity are constant, unchanging, and meant for all people, times, and places. But the methods by which truth is articulated and practiced must be culturally appropriated, and therefore constantly translated ... if doctrine is constant and practice is constantly changing, the result is living orthodoxy. #Quote by Mark Driscoll
Method quotes by John Von Neumann
#38. Anyone who considers arithmetical methods of producing random digits is, of course, in a state of sin. #Quote by John Von Neumann
Method quotes by Michael Ruhlman
#39. Old-Fashioned Pound Cake (Creaming Method) #Quote by Michael Ruhlman
Method quotes by David Gilmour
#40. I am not a technophobe and I am using the latest technology today, some 30-odd years later, and I am really enjoying what some of the new technologies can offer. But at the same time I am always aware that one can get bogged down in that technology and that it can become more than just a method. That's something that you have to be slightly careful of. #Quote by David Gilmour
Method quotes by Michael Shermer
#41. But there is only one surefire method of proper pattern recognition, and that is science. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Method quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#42. Art employs method for the symmetrical formation of beauty, as science employs it for the logical exposition of truth; but the mechanical process is, in the last, ever kept visibly distinct, while in the first it escapes from sight amid the shows of color and the curves of grace. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Method quotes by Charles Sanders Peirce
#43. The a priori method is distinguished for its comfortable conclusions. It is the nature of the process to adopt whatever belief weare inclined to, and there are certain flatteries to the vanity of man which we all believe by nature, until we are awakened from our pleasing dream by rough facts. #Quote by Charles Sanders Peirce
Method quotes by Bertolt Brecht
#44. Literary works cannot be taken over like factories, or literary forms of expression like industrial methods. Realist writing, of which history offers many widely varying examples, is likewise conditioned by the question of how, when and for what class it is made use of. #Quote by Bertolt Brecht
Method quotes by Evan Parker
#45. Improvisation is a compositional method. #Quote by Evan Parker
Method quotes by Robert Zubrin
#46. Like all cults, this new one adeptly represses heresy. . . . In defiance of the Western scientific tradition, which maintains that skepticism of inferences drawn from observation is always in order, and that all accepted conclusions are always subject to review and potential overthrow by new data, the climate catastrophists insist that 'the science is settled' (science is never 'settled') and that therefore no debate, and no new data, can or should be entertained. Those wishing to advance theories or data contrary to the accepted orthodoxy are not merely wrong, but criminal 'deniers' who should be silenced, vilified, and if possible, prosecuted. #Quote by Robert Zubrin
Method quotes by Timothy Ferriss
#47. Converting your own passions into a job is the fastest method for eliminating any passion you once had. #Quote by Timothy Ferriss
Method quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#48. They talked and talked and talked. Twenty-four biomes, ten thousand conversations. Talk talk talk. As they talked, it began to come clear to them that they had no very effective method of governance, when it came to making decisions as a group. Had humans ever had such a thing, they asked themselves, since leaving the savannah? Since congregating in cities? They could not be sure. The histories suggested maybe not. #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Method quotes by E. Nesbit
#49. She had been to her Great-Aunt Willoughby's before, and she knew exactly what to expect. She would be asked about her lessons, and how many marks she had, and whether she had been a good girl. I can't think why grownup people don't see how impertinent these questions are. Suppose you were to answer:
"I'm the top of my class, auntie, thank you, and I am very good. And now let us have a little talk about you, aunt, dear. How much money have you got, and have you been scolding the servants again, or have you tried to be good and patient, as a properly brought up aunt should be, eh, dear?"
Try this method with one of your aunts next time she begins asking you questions, and write and tell me what she says. #Quote by E. Nesbit
Method quotes by Peter Straub
#50. And I found a statement by Hawthorne which helped to explain his method: "I have sometimes produced a singular and not unpleasing effect, so far as my own mind was concerned, by imagining a train of incidents in which the spiritual mechanism of the faery legend should be combined with the characters and manners of everyday life. #Quote by Peter Straub
Method quotes by Natalie Imbruglia
#51. I exercise three to four times a week, doing the Tracy Anderson Method, which involves toning and strengthening our small muscle groups. #Quote by Natalie Imbruglia
Method quotes by Madeleine Stowe
#52. For the first two weeks of filming, I remember bristling at some of the occurrences on the set, none of which directly involved me. Then I surrendered to the environment, to Michael's method, and became much happier, even though no one knew what to expect. #Quote by Madeleine Stowe
Method quotes by Dani Rodrik
#53. Because economists go through a similar training and share a common method of analysis, they act very much like a guild. The models themselves may be the product of analysis, reflection, and observation, but practitioners' views about the real world develop much more heuristically, as a by-product of informal conversations and socialization among themselves. This kind of echo chamber easily produces overconfidence - in the received wisdom or the model of the day. Meanwhile, the guild mentality renders the profession insular and immune to outside criticism. The models may have problems, but only card-carrying members of the profession are allowed to say so. The objections of outsiders are discounted because they do not understand the models. The profession values smarts over judgment, being interesting over being right - so its fads and fashions do not always self-correct. #Quote by Dani Rodrik
Method quotes by Leon Battista Alberti
#54. The Arts are learnt by reason and method; they are mastered by practice. #Quote by Leon Battista Alberti
Method quotes by Stefan Molyneux
#55. States will invent obscure constructs like "white privilege" and "male privilege" because they are convenient to further the state's ends. They are untestable, unmeasurable, and unprovable, but they sound legitimate to those who consider themselves a casualty of society. Despite the lack of evidence, they put the burden on the white male to disprove the accuser. Since no such constructs exist, no method of defense is possible. #Quote by Stefan Molyneux
Method quotes by Elisha Cuthbert
#56. You know, I've never been much of a method actor. I feel like, with every project I go in extremely prepared and I like to have a good time. #Quote by Elisha Cuthbert
Method quotes by John Ruskin
#57. No one can become rich by the efforts of only their toil, but only by the discovery of some method of taxing the labor of others. #Quote by John Ruskin
Method quotes by Jayne Anne Phillips
#58. I work via the high-tension-wire method, which is maybe going for long periods without writing while the tension builds up - when am I going to write this, am I going to be able to write this, what is this image about - and I'm thinking about it all the time, but I'm not really inside it, inside the writing. #Quote by Jayne Anne Phillips
Method quotes by Ferdinand Foch
#59. The fundamental qualities for good execution of a plan is first; intelligence; then discernment and judgment, which enable one to recognize the best method as to attain it; the singleness of purpose; and, lastly, ... stubborn will. #Quote by Ferdinand Foch
Method quotes by Reginald Fessenden
#60. Standardization does not produce although admirable as an efficiency method. #Quote by Reginald Fessenden
Method quotes by John Maynard Keynes
#61. It economics is a method rather than a doctrine, an apparatus of the mind, a technique of thinking which helps its possessor to draw correct conclusions. #Quote by John Maynard Keynes
Method quotes by Robert M. Pirsig
#62. Why should an irrational method work when rational methods were all so rotten? He had an intuitive feeling, growing rapidly, that what he had stumbled on was no small gimmick. It went far beyond. How far, he didn't know. #Quote by Robert M. Pirsig
Method quotes by Gerard Butler
#63. At first it was a bit strange and daunting to have to wear a mask, but afterwards I came to enjoy it. In warm conditions, though, it started to slip off my face. Other times they used this double-sided sticky tape, and I literally couldn't get it off my face. I would feel like I was ripping my face off and I had a lot of cuts and bruises because of it-huge red marks. People might think it was method acting. #Quote by Gerard Butler
Method quotes by Kevin Whately
#64. Walking is my main method of relaxation. I don't go over my lines or try to solve the world's problems, I just enjoy the scenery and the wildlife. #Quote by Kevin Whately
Method quotes by Zella Day
#65. It's important to keep your creative muscle strong and working. My most inspiring method though is just sitting down with an acoustic guitar and coming up with melodies. It's what I've been doing nice I was nine years old. #Quote by Zella Day
Method quotes by Kenneth E. Boulding
#66. Accounting for the most part, remains a legalistic and traditional practice, almost immune to self-criticism by scientific methods. #Quote by Kenneth E. Boulding
Method quotes by Dana Rohrabacher
#67. And as we know now, and as I pointed out many times, the great plume of fire at the bottom of the Space Shuttle is actually dollar bills burning, and the most efficient method of destroying American dollar bills as has ever been devised by man. #Quote by Dana Rohrabacher
Method quotes by Donna Tartt
#68. Because it is dangerous to ignore the existence of the irrational. The more cultivated a person is, the more intelligent, the more repressed, then the more he needs some method of channeling the primitive impulses he's worked so hard to subdue. #Quote by Donna Tartt
Method quotes by Emma Goldman
#69. The government will ... go on in the highly democratic method of conscripting American manhood for European slaughter. #Quote by Emma Goldman
Method quotes by Temple Grandin
#70. A treatment method or an educational method that will work for one child may not work for another child. The one common denominator for all of the young children is that early intervention does work, and it seems to improve the prognosis. #Quote by Temple Grandin
Method quotes by Willard Van Orman Quine
#71. Scientific method is the way to truth, but it affords, even in
principle, no unique definition of truth. Any so-called pragmatic
definition of truth is doomed to failure equally. #Quote by Willard Van Orman Quine
Method quotes by Lydia Lunch
#72. Women are denied masturbation even more severely than men and that's another method of control-they're not taught to please themselves ... Most women-it takes them a while to warm up to the "situation" but once they get into it, I'm sure they're going to get just as hooked as-well, everyone I know is! #Quote by Lydia Lunch
Method quotes by John Battelle
#73. Search, a marketing method that didn't exist a decade ago, provides the most efficient and inexpensive way for businesses to find leads. #Quote by John Battelle
Method quotes by Shirley Jackson
#74. Anything which begins new and fresh will finally become old and silly. The educational institution is certainly no exception to this, although training the young is by implication an art for old people exclusively, and novelty in education is allied to mutiny. Moreover, the mere process of learning is allied to mutiny. Moreover, the mere process of learning is so excruciating and so bewildering that no conceivable phraseology or combination of philosophies can make it practical as a method of marking time during what might be called the formative years. #Quote by Shirley Jackson
Method quotes by Charles Sanders Peirce
#75. In all the works on pedagogy that ever I read - and they have been many, big, and heavy - I don't remember that any one has advocated a system of teaching by practical jokes, mostly cruel. That, however, describes the method of our great teacher, Experience. #Quote by Charles Sanders Peirce
Method quotes by Oswald Chambers
#76. To terrorize a man into believing in God is never the work of God, but the work of human expediency. If we want to convince a congregation of a certain thing, we may use terror to frighten them into it; but never say that is God's way, it is our way. To call that God's method is a travesty to the character of God. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Method quotes by Dalai Lama
#77. If you resort to violent methods because the other side has destroyed your monastery, for example, you then have lost not only your monastery, but also your special Buddhist practices of detachment, love, and compassion. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Method quotes by Kathryn Schulz
#78. Here, then, are some ways we can try to prevent mistakes. We can foster the ability to listen to each other and the freedom to speak our minds. We can create open and transparent environments instead of cultures of secrecy and concealment. And we can permit and encourage everyone, not just a powerful inner circle, to speak up when they see the potential for error.
These measures might be a prescription for identifying and eliminating mistakes, but they sound like something else: a prescription for democracy. That's not an accident. Although we don't normally think of it in these terms, democratic governance represents another method - this time a political rather than an industrial or personal one - for accepting the existence of error and trying to curtail its more dangerous incarnations. #Quote by Kathryn Schulz
Method quotes by Angela Merkel
#79. The 'community method' can only be applied in those areas in which the European Union actually has competence. Where the community has no competence, the 'community method' clearly cannot be applied. #Quote by Angela Merkel
Method quotes by Carl Wilhelm Scheele
#80. I took a glass retort, capable of containing eight ounces of water, and distilled fuming spirit of nitre according to the usual method. In the beginning the acid passed over red, then it became colourless, and lastly again all red: no sooner did this happen, then I took away the receiver; and tied to the mouth of the retort a bladder emptied of air, which I had moistened in its inside with milk of lime lac calcis, (i.e. lime-water, containing more quicklime than water can dissolve) to prevent its being corroded by the acid. Then I continued the distillation, and the bladder gradually expanded. Here-upon I left every thing to cool, tied up the bladder, and took it off from the mouth of the retort. - I filled a ten-ounce glass with this air and put a small burning candle into it; when immediately the candle burnt with a large flame, of so vivid a light that it dazzled the eyes. I mixed one part of this air with three parts of air, wherein fire would not burn; and this mixture afforded air, in every respect familiar to the common sort. Since this air is absolutely necessary for the generation of fire, and makes about one-third of our common air, I shall henceforth, for shortness sake call it empyreal air, [literally fire-air] the air which is unserviceable for the fiery phenomenon, and which makes abut two-thirds of common air, I shall for the future call foul air [literally corrupted air]. #Quote by Carl Wilhelm Scheele
Method quotes by Austin Bradford Hill
#81. The statistical method is required in the interpretation of figures which are at the mercy of numerous influences, and its object is to determine whether individual influences can be isolated and their effects measured. The essence of the method lies in the determination that we are really comparing like with like, and that we have not overlooked a relevant factor which is present in Group A and absent from Group B. The variability of human beings in their illnesses and in their reactions to them is a fundamental reason for the planned clinical trial and not against it. #Quote by Austin Bradford Hill
Method quotes by Frederick Lenz
#82. Once in while a teacher may make a recommendation, it is usually after going through the basic Socratic method of trying to get people to figure it out themselves. A good teacher challenges your mind, your intellect, and your spirit. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Method quotes by Martijn Benders
#83. Something in me - probably a small, nationalist dwarf part of my brain - something in me would like to feel proud of Dutch literature. But its hard to when the annual 'book week gift' year in year out is granted to a male. I dont like being part of an unjust system. But let me say this: it is the election method that is the real problem here. The 'vergadering' (meeting) that employs a simple flagging system - the basic way almost everything is decided here, from literary prizes to how much money is divided - it is a system based on the destruction of subtle values. You cannot ever ever say: I didnt understand this book. You can only say 'yes' or 'no'. And that system, that annihilates all forms of subtlety, that system is patriarchal in all its essence. So its useless to simply maintain the method, and try alter the outcome. #Quote by Martijn Benders
Method quotes by John Michael Greer
#84. Science, at its core, is simply a method of practical logic that tests hypotheses against experience. Scientism, by contrast, is the worldview and value system that insists that the questions the scientific method can answer are the most important questions human beings can ask, and that the picture of the world yielded by science is a better approximation to reality than any other. #Quote by John Michael Greer
Method quotes by John Dewey
#85. Leonardo virtually announced the birth of the method of modern science when he said that true knowledge begins with opinion. #Quote by John Dewey
Method quotes by Salman Khan
#86. Entire industries and some of our very largest professions depend on the persistence of our current system. Other social institutions - like giant publishers and test-prep companies - are synched to its workings. A certain teaching method implies certain goals and certain tests. The tests, in turn, have a serious impact on hiring practices and career advancement. Human nature being what it is, those who prosper under a given system tend to become supporters of that system. Thus the powerful tend to have a bias toward the status quo; our educational customs tend to perpetuate themselves, and because they interconnect with so many other aspects of our culture, they are extraordinarily difficult to change. #Quote by Salman Khan
Method quotes by Miriam Toews
#87. The truth is, I don't have a catchy method of conversing and yet unfortunately suffer of a minute to minute basis the agony of the unexpressed thought. #Quote by Miriam Toews
Method quotes by Joshua Stannard
#88. Isolation is not a healthy 'coping' method, it's like quarantining yourself in a gas chamber! #Quote by Joshua Stannard
Method quotes by Charles Duhigg
#89. One of the systems we use is called the LATTE method. We Listen to the customer, Acknowledge their complaint, Take action by solving the problem, Thank them, and then Explain why the problem occurred.5.19 #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Method quotes by Vida Dutton Scudder
#90. War to win peace is at best a dangerously illogical method. #Quote by Vida Dutton Scudder
Method quotes by Yoweri Museveni
#91. I don't know about torture. I have educated myself on many things but on torture I have not known the boundary between what is torture and what isn't torture. I know the NRA tie these people (rebels, etc.) when they catch them. They tie their hands backwards. I am now being told that is torture. It is the traditional method. #Quote by Yoweri Museveni
Method quotes by Enrico Caruso
#92. Jewish cantors employ a peculiar art and method of singing in their delivery. They are unexcelled in the art of covering the voice, picking up a new key, in the treatment of the ritual chant, and overcoming vocal difficulties that lie in the words rather than in the music. #Quote by Enrico Caruso
Method quotes by Margaret Sanger
#93. Birth Control which has been criticized as negative and destructive, is really the greatest and most truly eugenic method, and its adoption as part of the program of Eugenics would immediately give a concrete and realistic power to that science ... as the most constructive and necessary of the means to racial health. #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Method quotes by Karen Hawkins
#94. As I reach my thirtieth year of service as a butler in a gentleman's household, I find myself looking back. Between my secret recipe for boot blacking (an indispensable tool for a butler), and a vastly superior method to remove wine stains from velvet (which some will erroneously hold to be an impossibility), I find my memories salted with some faint wisdoms, a few tested experiences, and many, many interesting stories. #Quote by Karen Hawkins
Method quotes by Eric Ries
#95. The reality is the Lean Startup method is not about cost, it is about speed. Lean startups waste less money, because they use a disciplined approach to testing new products and ideas. #Quote by Eric Ries
Method quotes by B.K.S. Iyengar
#96. Yoga is an art, a science and a philosophy. It touches the life of man atevery level: physical, mental, spiritual. It is a practical method formaking one's life purposeful, useful and noble. #Quote by B.K.S. Iyengar
Method quotes by John Maynard Keynes
#97. As time goes on, I get more and more convinced that the right method of investment is to put fairly large sums into enterprises which one thinks one knows something about and in the management of which one thoroughly believes. #Quote by John Maynard Keynes
Method quotes by Kerri Maniscalco
#98. I laid facts out for you, Miss Wadsworth. You assumed I meant lover. You assumed he was untrustworthy, simply because of our professions. Your prejudice interfered with your ability to inquire further, to ask more specific questions, to separate fact from the fiction of your mind. You had the opportunity to clear everything up; I would not have lied to you. That was a choice you made, and did I benefit from it? Of course I did. I make no denial of the fact I've used this method on people before, and I will most certainly do so in the future. If you're angry with anyone, it ought to be yourself as well. You created an illusion of the truth you wanted to see. #Quote by Kerri Maniscalco
Method quotes by Jean Guitton
#99. When I read the documents relative to the Modernism, as it was defined by Saint Pius X, and when I compare them to the documents of the II Vatican Council, I cannot help being bewildered. For what was condemned as heresy in 1906 was proclaimed as what is and should be from now on the doctrine and method of the Church. In other words, the modernists of 1906 were, somewhat, precursors to me. My masters were part of them. My parents taught me Modernism. How could Saint Pius X reject those that now seem to be my precursors? #Quote by Jean Guitton
Method quotes by Michio Kaku
#100. An even more advanced form of uploading your mind into a computer was envisioned by computer scientist Hans Moravec. When I interviewed him, he claimed that his method of uploading the human mind could even be done without losing consciousness.

First you would be placed on a hospital gurney, next to a robot. Then a surgeon would take individual neurons from your brain and create a duplicate of these neurons (made of transistors) inside the robot. A cable would connect these transistorized neurons to your brain. As time goes by, more and more neurons are removed from your brain and duplicated in the robot. Because your brain is connected to the robot brain, you are fully conscious even as more and more neurons are replaced by transistors. Eventually, without losing consciousness, your entire brain and all its neurons are replaced by transistors. Once all one hundred billion neurons have been duplicated, the connection between you abd the artificial brain is finally cut. When you gaze back at the stretcher, you see your body, lacking its brain, while your consciousness now exists inside a robot. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Method quotes by Gino Severini
#101. In the early days the Cubists' method of grasping an object was to go round and round it; the futurists declared that one had to get inside it. In my opinion the two views can be reconciled in a poetic cognition of the world. But to the very fact that they appealed to the creative depths in the painter by awakening in him hidden forces which were intuitive and vitalizing, the Futurist theories did more than the Cubist principles to open up unexplored and boundless horizons. #Quote by Gino Severini
Method quotes by John Dewey
#102. Experience, in short, is not a combination of mind and world, subject and object, method and subject matter, but is a single continuous interaction of a great diversity (literally countless in number) of energies. #Quote by John Dewey
Method quotes by Mikhail Gorbachev
#103. It would be naive to think that the problems plaguing mankind today can be solved with means and methods which were applied or seemed to work in the past. #Quote by Mikhail Gorbachev
Method quotes by Viggo Mortensen
#104. People talk about method actors, meaning someone that's prepared very, very well, or whatever they mean when they talk about it. But the right method is whatever works for you. And what works for me on any given day is going to be different. #Quote by Viggo Mortensen
Method quotes by Tim Robbins
#105. I wouldn't say I'm a method actor. I do research when I feel I don't have enough experience for the part I'm playing. #Quote by Tim Robbins
Method quotes by Steven Biko
#106. The system concedes nothing without demand, for it formulates its very method of operation on the basis that the ignorant will learn to know, the child will grow into an adult and therefore demands will begin to be made. It gears itself to resist demands in whatever way it sees fit. #Quote by Steven Biko
Method quotes by Albert Low
#107. Instead of suppressing conflicts, specific channels could be created to make this conflict explicit, and specific methods could be set up by which the conflict is resolved. #Quote by Albert Low
Method quotes by Stephen Richards
#108. Religion to me was only something to be used and abused, as it had done nothing for me other than give me pain. Religion for me was a method used to gain an extra bottle of wine or a nice meal. #Quote by Stephen Richards
Method quotes by J. Edward Vance
#109. What is the meaning of life?" asked man.
"Seek and ye shall find," said God. "That was my method."
The man replied, "How might I do that?"
"Take a setting," instructed God. "Add some dirt and water, mold it into something likeable. Let there be light to break up the darkness. Plant some trees and fruit. Don't forget to put in a few animals. Then create a few wild things that are as curious in thought as you, and let them figure the damned thing out. #Quote by J. Edward Vance
Method quotes by Thomas Piketty
#110. Without precisely defined sources, methods, and concepts, it is possible to see absolutely everything and its opposite. #Quote by Thomas Piketty
Method quotes by Jeremy Denk
#111. If there's one thing I feel very strongly about, it's that there shouldn't be a distinction between pianists who play Ligeti and those who play Chopin. It might seem that they involve different skill sets, but I don't think that's true: whether playing Ives or Bach or Beethoven, you must bring the same imagination, the same sensitivity, and an ability to deal with same kinds of musical problems. The method behind my madness, anyway, is to keep plugging away at this idea. #Quote by Jeremy Denk
Method quotes by George Sanders
#112. How, then, to proceed? My method is: I imagine a meter mounted in my forehead, with 'P' on this side ('Positive') and 'N' on this side ('Negative'). I try to read what I've written uninflectedly, the way a first-time reader might ('without hope and without despair'). Where's the needle? Accept the result without whining. Then edit, so as to move the needle into the 'P' zone. Enact a repetitive, obsessive, iterative application of preference: watch the needle, adjust the prose, watch the needle, adjust the prose (rinse, lather, repeat), through (sometimes) hundreds of drafts. Like a cruiseship slowly turning, the story will start to alter course via those thousands of incremental adjustments. #Quote by George Sanders
Method quotes by Eknath Easwaran
#113. Violence only makes a situation worse. It cannot help but provoke a violent response. Strictly speaking, satyagraha is not "nonviolence." It is a means, a method. The word we translate as "nonviolence" is a Sanskrit word central in Buddhism as well: ahimsa, the complete absence of violence in word and even thought as well as action. This sounds negative, just as "nonviolence" sounds passive. But like the English word "flawless," ahimsa denotes perfection. Ahimsa is unconditional love; satyagraha is love in action. Gandhi's message #Quote by Eknath Easwaran
Method quotes by Simeon Ivanov
#114. Just as spring brings life to flowers and the moon moves tides on the shores, nothing is simply chance. Everything happens for a reason. Everything is a routine. #Quote by Simeon Ivanov
Method quotes by David Hume
#115. The religious hypothesis, therefore, must be considered only as a particular method of accounting for the visible phenomena of the universe: but no just reasoner will ever presume to infer from it any single fact, and alter or add to the phenomena, in any single particular. #Quote by David Hume
Method quotes by Duane Garner
#116. The view of the "any-minute-now" rapture of the saints together with the belief that some time after that event Christ will return again to usher in a thousand-year po-litical kingdom, thereby fulfilling his promises to David, is the product of a method of interpretation known as dispensationalism. This construction is entirely unique to dispensationalism. No other system teaches this view. #Quote by Duane Garner
Method quotes by Carl Jung
#117. Psychoanalysis cannot be considered a method of education if by education we mean the topiary art of clipping a tree into a beautiful artificial shape. But those who have a higher conception of education will prize most the method of cultivating a tree so that it fulfils to perfection its own natural conditions of growth. #Quote by Carl Jung
Method quotes by Graham Greene
#118. From eight-thirty in the morning until eleven he dealt with a case of petty larceny; there were six witnesses to examine, and he didn't believe a word that any of them said. In European cases there are words one believes and words one distrusts: it is possible to draw a speculative line between the truth and the lies; at least the cui bono principle to some extent operates, and it is usually safe to assume, if the accusation is theft and there is no question of insurance, that something has at least been stolen. But here one could make no such assumption; one could draw no lines. He had known police officers who nerves broke down in the effort to separate a single grain of incontestable truth; they ended, some of them, by striking a witness, they were pilloried in the local Creole papers and were invalided home or transferred. It woke in some men a virulent hatred of a black skin, but Scobie had long ago, during his fifteen years, passed through the dangerous stages; now lost in the tangle of lies he felt an extraordinary affection for these people who paralysed an alien form of justice by so simple a method. #Quote by Graham Greene
Method quotes by Nick Blaemire
#119. In terms of theater itself, no story is too strange or method of telling it too impossible these days. In many ways, musical theater has caught up with straight theater in that it's allowed more surreality and breaking of form, and that's really exciting to me - the challenge is getting people to produce those shows. #Quote by Nick Blaemire
Method quotes by Russell Anthony Gibbs
#120. Know that you are God/the Universe and that anywhere you aim/focus your consciousness you create reality in one of the infinite physical and nonphysical realms. It all begins with thought, contemplation, prayer, dreams, plans, desires or any method of focusing your consciousness. If you wish to praise or blame God/the Universe for something, you should do it in a mirror. It is you and has always been you in charge of all reality. #Quote by Russell Anthony Gibbs
Method quotes by Shahenshah Hafeez Khan
#121. The Crowd Follower: I don't believe it?



The Risk Taker: What exactly you don't believe? The completion of the project or the process of completion.



The Crowd Follower: I don't believe this can be done this way. No one ever thought of such method, it is beyond my belief.



The Risk Taker: Exactly! Your belief was in the failure, you believed its impossible, & when the work progressed, you started questioning the process?



The Crowd Follower: I need to know how they made it possible?



The Risk Taker: It's very simple, unlike you. They started with a clean thought process & a missing ingredient, you know what was missing? The belief that it is impossible.



They believed it's possible, & they kept trying & improvising during the process. The absence of a dis-belief resulted in a new method.



They discussed the set-backs/failures in a positive manner on making it more effective, and not to declare the project as failure & stop work.



It's the thought process which provides a positive or negative result, when you start negatively you are already working towards proving your point that it's impossible, didn't I tell you so? However positive thoughts generates a positive energy that produces improvisation & innovation required to succeed #Quote by Shahenshah Hafeez Khan
Method quotes by Terence McKenna
#122. We must look to the native healers all over the world and study their methods ... Their methods are chemical and personal. It's a combination of care, attention, intention and chemistry that allows consciousness to be made malleable and recast in other forms. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Method quotes by E. M. Bounds
#123. WE are constantly on a stretch, if not on a strain, to devise new methods, new plans, new organizations to advance the Church and secure enlargement and efficiency for the gospel. This trend of the day has a tendency to lose sight of the man or sink the man in the plan or organization. God's plan is to make much of the man, far more of him than of anything else. Men are God's method. The Church is looking for better methods; God is looking for better men. There was a man sent from God whose name was John. #Quote by E. M. Bounds
Method quotes by Bill Maher
#124. People have romantic notions about television. In the highest realms they think it's some sort of art medium, and it's not. Others think it's an entertainment medium, it's not that either. It's an advertising medium. It's a method to deliver advertising like a cigarette is a method to deliver nicotine. #Quote by Bill Maher
Method quotes by Frederick Lenz
#125. One of the traditional Tantric methods of mediation is to imagine that you are taking on the suffering of all beings. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Method quotes by Umberto Eco
#126. Not that the incredulous person doesn't believe in anything. It's just that he doesn't believe in everything. Or he believes in one thing at a time. He believes a second thing only if it somehow follows from the first thing. He is nearsighted and methodical, avoiding wide horizons. If two things don't fit, but you believe both of them, thinking that somewhere, hidden, there must be a third thing that connects them, that's credulity. #Quote by Umberto Eco
Method quotes by Mao Zedong
#127. There are some militarists who say: 'We are not interested in politics but only in the profession of arms.' It is vital that these simple-minded militarists be made to realize the relationship that exists between politics and military affairs. Military action is a method used to attain a political goal. While military affairs and political affairs are not identical, it is impossible to isolate one from the other." - Mao Zedong, Yu Chi Chan #Quote by Mao Zedong
Method quotes by Agatha Christie
#128. Everything must be taken into account. If the fact will not fit the theory
let the theory go. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Method quotes by Shay Mitchell
#129. Yeah, you know, if I'm having an emotional scene I do like to go off and be by myself; not to say that I'm a method actor or anything like that, but for scenes like that that are more emotional, I do like to take that night off and not be so social. #Quote by Shay Mitchell
Method quotes by David G. McAfee
#130. Because of Jesus' supposed predestination, God would have had to choose the people who would kill and betray his son, choose the method by which he would be killed (crucifixion), and the time at which the event would occur. Those guilty of killing Jesus would therefore be simply carrying out God's wishes without the free will to have chosen a path for themselves. #Quote by David G. McAfee
Method quotes by Terry Pratchett
#131. And therefore education at the University mostly worked by the age-old method of putting a lot of young people in the vicinity of a lot of books and hoping that something would pass from one to the other, while the actual young people put themselves in the vicinity of inns and taverns for exactly the same reason. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Method quotes by Fred Kaps

Method quotes by Tyrese Gibson
#134. James Franco is a Method actor. I respect Method actors, but he never snapped out of character. Whenever we'd have to get in the ring for boxing scenes, and even during practice, the dude was full-on hitting me. #Quote by Tyrese Gibson
Method quotes by Edward Snowden
#135. A zero-day exploit is a method of hacking a system. It's sort of a vulnerability that has an exploit written for it, sort of a key and a lock that go together to a given software package. It could be an internet web server. It could be Microsoft Office. It could be Adobe Reader or it could be Facebook. #Quote by Edward Snowden
Method quotes by Neil Rackham
#136. The traditional selling models, methods, and techniques that most of us have been trained to use work best in small sales. For now, let me define small as a sale which can normally be completed in a single call and which involves a low dollar value. Unfortunately, these tried-and-true low-value sales techniques, most of them dating from the 1920s, don't work today. #Quote by Neil Rackham
Method quotes by J. Gresham Machen
#137. A public-school system, if it means the providing of free education for those who desire it, is a noteworthy and beneficent achievement of modern times; but when once it becomes monopolistic it is the most perfect instrument for tyranny which has yet been devised. Freedom of thought in the middle ages was combated by the Inquisition, but the modern method is far more effective.' (1923) #Quote by J. Gresham Machen
Method quotes by Molly Ringle
#138. Did you look up 'incubus'?" Ren asked, in her ear. She heard a smile in his voice.

"Yes. Let's see, 'a lascivious spirit supposed to have sexual intercourse with women in their sleep,' if I remember right."

"There. And you thought it wasn't possible. It's common enough they actually had to make up a word for it."

"Well, if you've been doing that, then you must have been discreet, because I sure haven't noticed."

"It's not my preferred method," he said. "I always wake them up first. #Quote by Molly Ringle
Method quotes by Peter Grey
#139. The cult of the Virgin Mary enabled the worship of the Goddess to flourish, albeit in a cauterised form. As I keep repeating in a mantra, sex is power. The Virgin was a method of turning the sexual impulse of Christians back into the Church and onto the figure of the crucified Christ. I would describe this as a particularly unsavoury form of magick. This is the use of repression and misery as a spiritual battery. This enslavement of the worshipper's natural desires is the exact opposite of the natural and healthy lust for Babalon.

With the resolutely chaste Mary in position, churches had a surrogate Goddess back in the house. Christ knows, they needed one. To sell Christianity to the fans of the God who dies and is reborn (like the crops in the fields) the Church used statues of Mary and Jesus that were rather close to those of Isis and the Child Horus. This mother/son icon propaganda was like a Pepsi taste test for the wavering pagans. They failed.

It requires other women to keep women as slaves stripped of their sexual power. The BVM did that job. She was the only role model that you could fixate upon.

As a Goddess she is a clitoridectomy. If you lift her skirt you can see the coarse black thread where she has been snipped and stitched. The thread is plaited from the beard of Jehovah himself. This is not a woman anymore. Look under the hem and learn. #Quote by Peter Grey
Method quotes by Napoleon Hill
#140. There is but one dependable method of accumulating and legally holding riches, and that is by rendering useful service. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Method quotes by David L. Prowse
#141. Something else to note: Classful IP addresses used in Class A, B, and C are not quite as necessary anymore. In fact, many corporate networks use classless IP addressing. This means that any network number can use any subnet mask. (Breaking all the rules!) For example, one of my test networks uses the 10.254.254.0 network and the 255.255.255.0 subnet mask, making the network number 10.254.254, instead of just 10. How is this done? By changing the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 instead of the default 255.0.0.0. (I guess this means my test network has no class. Ouch!) Seriously though, this method is known as Classless Inter-Domain Routing, or CIDR for short, and you will deal with this more if you decide to enter into the realm of Network+. #Quote by David L. Prowse
Method quotes by Frank Herbert
#142. Madness in method, that's genius #Quote by Frank Herbert
Method quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#143. No method nor discipline can supersede the necessity of being forever on the alert. What is a course of history, or philosophy, or poetry, or the most admirable routine of life, compared with the discipline of looking always at what is to be seen? Will you be a reader, a student merely, or a seer? #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Method quotes by Sheila Moon
#144. I wonder where we are going," I said.
"Wherever the way is going," Exi replied calmly.
"But where do you suppose the way is going?"
"Wherever we go."
"That doesn't really make sense, does it?"
"Oh, yes. Quite good sense."
"Why?"
"Do you know any method by which you can go way and your path another? Not the path, but your path?"
"Well-" I hesitated. "Well, if you put it that way, I guess not. But what about crossroads? Couldn't you choose the wrong one?"
"I suppose you could. However, if it was the wrong way you chose, it would still be your way, wouldn't it?"
"Yes," I answered, "yes, it probably would. #Quote by Sheila Moon
Method quotes by Nicholas Murray Butler
#145. The analytical geometry of Descartes and the calculus of Newton and Leibniz have expanded into the marvelous mathematical method-more daring than anything that the history of philosophy records-of Lobachevsky and Riemann, Gauss and Sylvester. Indeed, mathematics, the indispensable tool of the sciences, defying the senses to follow its splendid flights, is demonstrating today, as it never has been demonstrated before, the supremacy of the pure reason. #Quote by Nicholas Murray Butler
Method quotes by Susan Cain
#146. The New Groupthink is also practiced in our schools, via an increasingly popular method of instruction called "cooperative" or "small group" learning. In many elementary schools, the traditional rows of seats facing the teacher have been replaced with "pods" of four or more desks pushed together to facilitate countless group learning activities. Even subjects like math and creative writing, which would seem to depend on solo flights of thought, are often taught as group projects. In one fourth-grade classroom I visited, a big sign announced the "Rules for Group Work," including, YOU CAN'T ASK A TEACHER FOR HELP UNLESS EVERYONE IN YOUR GROUP HAS THE SAME QUESTION. #Quote by Susan Cain

Method quotes by Andre Marie Ampere
#149. Either one or the other [analysis or synthesis] may be direct or indirect. The direct procedure is when the point of departure is known-direct synthesis in the elements of geometry. By combining at random simple truths with each other, more complicated ones are deduced from them. This is the method of discovery, the special method of inventions, contrary to popular opinion. #Quote by Andre Marie Ampere
Method quotes by Rachel Caine
#150. You're - ' 'Well funded? Yes. Amelie wanted to establish another, less chaotic method of research to validate and record Myrnin's discoveries. You know him; he's brilliant, and he's the living embodiment of chaos theory. So my job is to find out why his discoveries work, document and make them easily reproducible with modern equipment and techniques. And now that's your job, too.' 'I was already doing that. Trying to, anyway. When he'd let me. #Quote by Rachel Caine

#151. Life is full of signs. The trick is to know how to read them. Ghosh called this heuristics, a method for solving a problem for which no formula exists. #Quote by Abraham Verghese
Method quotes by John Dewey
#152. Have not some religions, including the most influential forms of Christianity, taught that the heart of man is totally corrupt? How could the course of religion in its entire sweep not be marked by practices that are shameful in their cruelty and lustfulness, and by beliefs that are degraded and intellectually incredible? What else than what we can find could be expected, in the case of people having little knowledge and no secure method of knowing; with primitive institutions, and with so little control of natural forces that they lived in a constant state of fear? #Quote by John Dewey
Method quotes by Bruno Bettelheim
#153. Parents ought, through their own behavior and the values by which they live, to provide direction for their children. But they need to rid themselves of the idea that there are surefire methods which, when well applied, will produce certain predictable results. Whatever we do with and for our children ought to flow from our understanding of and our feelings for the particular situation and the relation we wish to exist between us and our child. #Quote by Bruno Bettelheim

Method quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#158. Science is never rigid, it is flexible. It can bend towards any direction that ultimately tends to do good to humanity. Religion must learn the same. And the moment any religion learns that, it would become the most scientific religion in the world. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Method quotes by George Saunders
#159. So let me just say this. There are ways. You already know that because, in your life, there have been High Kindness periods and Low Kindness periods, and you know what inclined you toward the former and away from the latter. Education is good; immersing ourselves in a work of art: good; prayer is good; meditation's good; a frank talk with a dear friend; establishing ourselves in some kind of spiritual tradition - recognizing that there have been countless really smart people before us who have asked these same questions and left behind answers for us. It would be strange and self-defeating to fail to seek out these wise voices from the past
as self-defeating as it would be to attempt to rediscover the principles of physics from scratch or invent a new method of brain surgery without having learned the ones that already exist. #Quote by George Saunders
Method quotes by Kirk Douglas
#160. Unfortunately, once I did learn to smoke, I couldn't stop. I escalated to two packs a day very quickly, and stayed that way for about ten years. When I decided to stop, I adopted the method that my father had used when he quit. He would carry a cigarette in his shirt pocket, and every time he felt like smoking, he would pull out the cigarette and confront it: "Who stronger? You? Me?" Always the answer was the same: "I stronger." Back the cigarette would go, until the next craving. It worked for him, and it worked for me. #Quote by Kirk Douglas

Method quotes by Clarence Darrow
#162. The time will come when all people will view with horror light way in which society and its courts of law now take human life; and when that time comes, the way will be clear to device some better method of dealing with poverty and ignorance and their frequent byproducts, which we call crime. #Quote by Clarence Darrow

Method quotes by Jon Jones
#166. Thus men of more enlighten'd genius and more intrepid spirit must compose themselves to the risque of public censure, and the contempt of their jealous contemporaries, in order to lead ignorant and prejudic'd minds into more happy and successful methods. #Quote by Jon Jones
Method quotes by Nathan Winograd
#167. We have the power to build a new consensus, which rejects killing as a method for achieving results. And we can look forward to a time when the wholesale slaughter of animals in shelters is viewed as a cruel aberration of the past. We have a choice. #Quote by Nathan Winograd

Method quotes by Jonah Lehrer
#170. There is something scary about letting ourselves go. It means that we will screw up, that we will relinquish the possibility of perfection. It means that we will say things we didn't mean to say and express feelings we can't explain. It means that we will be onstage and not have complete control, that we won't know what we're going to play until we begin, until the bow is drawn across the strings. While this spontaneous method might be frightening, it's also an extremely valuable source of creativity ... the lesson about letting go is that we contain our own creativity. We are so worried about playing the wrong note or saying the wrong thing that we end up with nothing at all. #Quote by Jonah Lehrer
Method quotes by Anthony Everitt
#171. Father and son had been on poor terms (even Cicero acknowledged this) and it was arranged for the young man to be accused of parricide. This was among the most serious offenses in the charge book and was one of the few crimes to attract the death penalty under Roman law. The method of execution was extremely unpleasant. An ancient legal authority described what took place: According to the custom of our ancestors it was established that the parricide should be beaten with blood-red rods, sewn in a leather sack together with a dog [an animal despised by Greeks and Romans], a cock [like the parricide devoid of all feelings of affection], a viper [whose mother was supposed to die when it was born], and an ape [a caricature of a man], and the sack thrown into the depths of the sea or a river. #Quote by Anthony Everitt
Method quotes by Wolfgang Pauli
#172. The natural scientist is concerned with a particular kind of phenomena ... he has to confine himself to that which is reproducible ... I do not claim that the reproducible by itself is more important than the unique. But I do claim that the unique exceeds the treatment by scientific method. Indeed it is the aim of this method to find and test natural laws ... #Quote by Wolfgang Pauli

#175. As a reward for their efforts, however, those early Christians were beaten, stoned to death, thrown to the lions, tortured and crucified. Every conceivable method was used to stop them from talking. #Quote by Josh McDowell
Method quotes by Poppy Montgomery
#176. Maybe I'm secretly in my soul a method actor. #Quote by Poppy Montgomery
Method quotes by John Steinbeck
#177. In human affairs of danger and delicacy successful conclusion is sharply limited by hurry. So often men trip by being in a rush. If one were properly to perform a difficult and subtle act, he should first inspect the end to be achieved and then, once he had accepted the end as desirable, he should forget it completely and concentrate solely on the means. By this method he would not be moved to false action by anxiety or hurry or fear. Very few people learn this. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Method quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#178. Probability is not a mere computation of odds on the dice or more complicated variants; it is the acceptance of the lack of certainty in our knowledge and the development of methods for dealing with our ignorance. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Method quotes by Arthur Erickson
#179. Part of our western outlook stems from the scientific attitude and its method of isolating the parts of a phenomenon in order to analyze them. #Quote by Arthur Erickson
Method quotes by Albert J. Nock
#180. There are two methods, or means, and only two, whereby man's needs and desires can be satisfied. One is the production and exchange of wealth; this is the economic means. The other is the uncompensated appropriation of wealth produced by others; this is the political means. #Quote by Albert J. Nock
Method quotes by Edward Ruscha
#181. Basically everything I've done in art, I was in possession of when I was 20 years old. I use a waste retrieval method of working. I'll go back and use something that disgusted me 15 years ago but that I had enough sense to think about. Some artists change dramatically. I see my work more like history being written. #Quote by Edward Ruscha
Method quotes by Philippa Perry
#182. The practice of self-observation mirrors the way in which a mother observes and attunes to her baby. Self-observation is a method of re-parenting ourselves. ... What am I feeling now? What am I thinking now? What am I doing at this moment? How am I breathing? What do I want for myself in this new moment? #Quote by Philippa Perry
Method quotes by Alister E. McGrath
#183. Science proceeds by inference, rather than by the deduction of mathematical proof. A series of observations is accumulated, forcing the deeper question: What must be true if we are to explain what is observed? What "big picture" of reality offers the best fit to what is actually observed in our experience? American scientist and philosopher Charles S. Peirce used the term "abduction" to refer to the way in which scientists generate theories that might offer the best explanation of things. The method is now more often referred to as "inference to the best explanation." It is now widely agreed to be the philosophy of investigation of the world characteristic of the natural sciences. #Quote by Alister E. McGrath
Method quotes by Agatha Christie
#184. With method and logic one can accomplish anything! #Quote by Agatha Christie
Method quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#185. A general flat minimum-wage law for all industry is permissible, but I do not think that it is a particularly wise method of achieving the end. I know much better methods of providing a minimum for everybody. But once you turn from laying down a general minimum for all industry to decreeing particular and different minimum for different industries, then, of course, you make the price mechanism inoperative, because it is no longer the price mechanism which will guide people between industries and trades. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
Method quotes by Bill Gaede
#186. Science is not about making predictions or performing experiments. Science is about explaining. #Quote by Bill Gaede
Method quotes by Angie Thomas
#187. You have to decide if the relationship is worth salvaging. Make a list of the good stuff, then made a list of the bad stuff. If one outweighs the other, then you know what you gotta do. Trust me, that method hasn't failed me yet. . . . What if the good doesn't outweigh the bad? . . . Then let her go. And if you keep her in your life and she keeps doing the bad, let her go. #Quote by Angie Thomas
Method quotes by Jean-Baptiste Say
#188. Regulation is useful and proper, when aimed at the prevention of fraud or contrivance, manifestly injurious to other kinds of production, or to the public safety, and not at prescribing the nature of the products and the methods of fabrication. #Quote by Jean-Baptiste Say
Method quotes by Dick Cheney
#189. One of the problems we have as a government is our inability to keep secrets. And it costs us, in terms of our relationship with other governments, in terms of the willingness of other intelligence services to work with us, in terms of revealing sources and methods. And all of those elements enter into some of these leaks. #Quote by Dick Cheney
Method quotes by Robert Taft
#190. The only method by which people can be supported is out of the effort of those who are earning their own way. We must not create a deterrent to hard work. #Quote by Robert Taft
Method quotes by Isla Fisher
#191. I've never been a method actress; I've never been that person that wants to imagine horrible things happening in your own life in order to exploit them for your emotional being in the movie. I'm just not good at doing that. #Quote by Isla Fisher
Method quotes by Lori Gottlieb
#192. I thought I should call a matchmaker.

For me, this seemed like a radical step. It never occurred to me to hire a matchmaker when I was younger because I always believed I'd meet a man on my own. He'd be sitting next to me on an airplane, waiting in line behind me at the dry cleaner, working in the same office attending the same party, hanging out at the same coffeehouse.

It seemed ridiculous now, when I thought about the odds of this happening. After all, we don't subject other important aspects of out lives to pure chance. When you want to get a job you don't just hang out in the lobbies of office buildings, hoping an employer will strike up a conversation with you. When you want to buy a house, you don't walk aimlessly from neighborhood to neighborhood on your own, hoping to spot a house that happens to be for sale, matches your personal taste and contains the appropriate number of bedrooms and bathrooms. That's too random. If that's your only method of house hunting, you might end up homeless. So you hire a real estate broker to show you the potential homes that meet your needs. By the same token, why not hire a matchmaker to show you potential partners? #Quote by Lori Gottlieb
Method quotes by Arlen Specter
#193. The Supreme Court's 5-4 decision rejected Congress' findings and its method of reasoning, .. Is there any real justification for the court's denigrating Congress' 'method of reasoning'?. #Quote by Arlen Specter
Method quotes by Paramahansa Yogananda
#194. In vegetables and fruits, God has infused medicinal power to help in overcoming disease. Even these, however, have but a limited potency. The organs of the body are essentially sustained by the energy of God, and the person who employs various methods to increase this energy will have at his command a greater power for healing than is afforded by any medicine or diet. #Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda
Method quotes by Todd Haynes
#195. There is no single approach that actors take to their craft. And the best thing you learn is that you have to really listen and respect each actor's own process and own method, and that takes a kind of delicate, non-imposing patience and openness, I think, to get the very best out of the people you work with. #Quote by Todd Haynes
Method quotes by Method Man
#196. When the ball dropped in 1999, I was holding dough and champagne in my hands and holding my kids. #Quote by Method Man
Method quotes by Baruch Spinoza
#197. Nothing comes to pass in nature, which can be set down to a flaw therein; for nature is always the same and everywhere one and thesame in her efficiency and power of action; that is, nature's laws and ordinances whereby all things come to pass and change from one form to another, are everywhere and always; so that there should be one and the same method of understanding the nature of all things whatsoever, namely, through nature's universal laws and rules. #Quote by Baruch Spinoza
Method quotes by Fumio Sasaki
#198. Minimalism is not a goal. Reducing the number of possessions that you have is not a goal unto itself. I think minimalism is a method for individuals to find the things that are entirely important to them. It's a prologue for crafting your own unique story. #Quote by Fumio Sasaki
Method quotes by Yevgeny Yevtushenko
#199. There is no need to fear the strong. All one needs is to know the method of overcoming them. There is a special jujitsu for every strong man. #Quote by Yevgeny Yevtushenko
Method quotes by Eliza M. Hickok
#200. I know not by what method rare
But this I know, God answers prayer.
I know that he has given his Word
Which tells me prayer is always heard
And will be answered soon or late
And so I pray and calmly wait.

I know not if the blessing sought
Will come in just the way I thought
But leave my prayers with him alone
Whose will is wiser than my own
Assured that he will grant my quest
Or send some answer far more blessed. #Quote by Eliza M. Hickok
