Mettler Scale quotes by Becky Chambers
#1. Perhaps the most crucial stage is that of 'intraspecies chaos.' This is the proving ground, the awkward adolescence when a species either learns to come together on a global scale, or dissolves into squabbling factions doomed to extinction, whether through war or ecological disasters too great to tackle divided. #Quote by Becky Chambers
Mettler Scale quotes by Vint Cerf
#2. The Internet has introduced an enormously accessible and egalitarian platform for creating, sharing and obtaining information on a global scale. As a result, we have new ways to allow people to exercise their human and civil rights. #Quote by Vint Cerf
Mettler Scale quotes by Bill Bryson
#3. The Greater London Development Plan would have cost a then-colossal £2 billion, making it the biggest public investment ever made in Britain. That was its salvation. Britain couldn't afford it. In the end, the visionaries were undone by the unmanageable scale of their own ambitions. It #Quote by Bill Bryson
Mettler Scale quotes by Colson Whitehead
#4. Since the night she was kidnapped she had been appraised and reappraised, each day waking upon the pan of a new scale. Know your value and you know your place in the order. To escape the boundary of the plantation was to escape the fundamental principles of your existence: impossible. It #Quote by Colson Whitehead
Mettler Scale quotes by Vladimir Lenin
#5. When we are victorious on a world scale I think we shall use gold for the purpose of building public lavatories in the streets of some of the largest cities of the world. #Quote by Vladimir Lenin
Mettler Scale quotes by Mark Greif
#6. It interests me that there is no end of fictions, and facts made over in the forms of fictions. Because we class them under so many different rubrics, and media, and means of delivery, we don't recognize the sheer proliferation and seamlessness of them. I think at some level of scale or perspective, the police drama in which a criminal is shot, the hospital in which the doctors massage a heart back to life, the news video in which jihadists behead a hostage, and the human-interest story of a child who gets his fondest wish (a tourist trip somewhere) become the same sorts of drama. They are representations of strong experience, which, as they multiply, began to dedifferentiate in our uptake of them, despite our names and categories and distinctions...

I say I watch the news to "know". But I don't really know anything. Certainly I can't do anything. I know that there is a war in Iraq, but I knew that already. I know that there are fires and car accidents in my state and in my country, but that, too, I knew already. With each particular piece of footage, I know nothing more than I did before. I feel something, or I don't feel something. One way I am likely to feel is virtuous and "responsible" for knowing more of these things that I can do nothing about. Surely this feeling is wrong, even contemptible. I am not sure anymore what I feel.

What is it like to watch a human being's beheading? The first showing of the video is bad. The second, fifth, tenth, hundr #Quote by Mark Greif
Mettler Scale quotes by Andrew S. Tanenbaum
#7. I had never engaged in remote multishrink psychoanalysis on this scale before, so it was a fascinating experience. #Quote by Andrew S. Tanenbaum
Mettler Scale quotes by Reni Eddo-Lodge
#8. To believe in emasculation, you have to believe that masculinity is about power, and strength, and dominance. These traits are supposed to be great in men, but they're very unattractive in women. Especially angry black ones. Women in general aren't supposed to be angry. Women are expected to smile, swallow our feelings and be self-sacrificial. Bossy is ugly, and of course, the worst thing a woman could ever be is ugly. As black women, our blackness already situates us further along the ugliness scale. God forbid we be fat. #Quote by Reni Eddo-Lodge
Mettler Scale quotes by Jeff McMahan
#9. It is arguable […] that a further effect of our partiality for members of our own species is a tendency to decreased sensitivity to the lives and well-being of those sentient beings that are not members of our species.

One can discern an analogous phenomenon in the case of nationalism. It frequently happens that the sense of solidarity among the members of a nation motivates them to do for one another all that - and perhaps even more than - they are required to do by impartial considerations. But the powerful sense of collective identity within a nation is often achieved by contrasting an idealized conception of the national character with caricatures of other nations, whose members are regarded as less important or worthy or, in many cases, are dehumanized and despised as inferior or even odious. When nationalist solidarity is maintained. in this way - as it has been in recent years in such places as Yugoslavia and its former provinces - the result is often brutality and atrocity on an enormous scale. Thus, while nationalist sentiment may have beneficial effects within the nation, these are greatly outweighed from an impartial point of view by the dreadful effects that it has on relations between nations. #Quote by Jeff McMahan
Mettler Scale quotes by Austin Grossman
#10. Long-range missiles with hybrid thermonuclear and necromantic payloads. Grafted and crossbred infantry divisions. Strategic alliances with folkloric, extraplanar, and subterranean entities. Field deployment of weaponized paleofauna. Large-scale saturation of target areas with invasive fungal and floral xeno organisms. Megadeaths and mega-undeaths. This is the Cold War now. An American president must be found who, whatever his other qualifications, is prepared to maintain our competitiveness in this area. I'm afraid that that person is you. #Quote by Austin Grossman
Mettler Scale quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#11. The problems raised by a conscious direction of economic affairs on a national scale inevitably assume even greater dimensions when the same is attempted internationally. The conflict between planning and freedom cannot but become more serious as the similarity of standards and values among those submitted to a unitary plan diminishes. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
Mettler Scale quotes by Jenny Lawson
#12. I have learned that every person in the world is on the spectrum of mental illness. Many people barely register on the scale, while others have far more than they could be expected to handle. #Quote by Jenny Lawson
Mettler Scale quotes by Cat Hellisen
#13. There is something frosty about her, and when she talks I expect to feel her breath against my face like a winter sea-gale. Instead, her voice is calm and quiet, but hidden under it are snake-hisses and sneers.

"Ilven will not be available for your games today, Felicita, dear."

There is a subtle emphasis on games and dear. Nothing overt - I am, after all, from House Pelim - but enough for me to know that Malker are determined to claw their way up to their old level on the social scale. It's a warning of sorts. #Quote by Cat Hellisen
Mettler Scale quotes by Sasa Stanisic
#14. By trying to give an artistic approach through my book I stepped unwillingly into other fields. Like a dentist being asked about a throat ache on a much more relevant scale, I was caught in trying to explain what was unexplainable for me. In the end, trying to explain why it was unexplainable finally led to a huge general insecurity in dealing with the subject at all. #Quote by Sasa Stanisic
Mettler Scale quotes by Nicola Yoon
#15. This is where I would've taken Daniel. I would've told him to write poetry about space rocks and impact craters. The sheer number of actions and reactions it's taken to form our solar system, our galaxy, our universe, is astonishing. The number of things that had to go exactly right is overwhelming.

Compared to that, what is falling in love? A series of small coincidences that we say means everything because we want to believe that our tiny lives matter on a galactic scale. But falling in love doesn't even begin to compare to the formation of the universe.

It's not even close #Quote by Nicola Yoon
Mettler Scale quotes by Laura L. Sullivan
#16. Whoever is in charge of such things had been sparing with his blessings on the moment Benno was born. He had neither looks nor wit nor skill. He was not large or strong, he could not sing; in fact, he had a stammer, which on most occasions left him self-consciously mute. One gift only had been given, a gift as simple as it is rare: the gift of pure goodness. He knew, unerringly, what was right, what was kind, what would make people happy, and he did it without fail. His goodness took no effort; there was no internal scale to be balanced. He hoped for no reward and feared no hell. He was not clever- in his final year of school before the teachers despaired of him, he was asked how he would equitably divide a half-pound loaf of bread among himself and two friends. He said he would go without and his two friends would each have a quarter pound, and neither threats of failure not the switch could persuade him to change his answer. #Quote by Laura L. Sullivan
Mettler Scale quotes by George Saunders
#17. What good the prophet in the wilderness may do is incremental and personal. It's good for us to hear someone speak the irrational truth. It's good for us when, in spite of all of the sober, pragmatic, and even correct arguments that war is sometimes necessary someone says: war is large-scale murder, us at our worst, the stupidest guy doing the cruelest thing to the weakest being. #Quote by George Saunders
Mettler Scale quotes by Jay-Z
#18. I'm gonna fight, and I'm gonna make something out of nothing. That's pretty much the American dream. So, for me, the realization that I could speak to people like that came first on a small scale. Then it just started happening. I started having this vibration. #Quote by Jay-Z
Mettler Scale quotes by David Foster Wallace
#19. It's plausibly a case of any kind of system that's been under enormous silent pressure for some time, that when the system finally blows the accreted pressure's such that it's almost always a full-scale eruption. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Mettler Scale quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#20. All the arts, which have a tendency to raise man in the scale of being, have a certain common band of union, and are connected, if I may be allowed to say so, by blood-relationship with one another. #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Mettler Scale quotes by Richard Dawkins
#21. People who believe the earth was created 6000 years ago, when it's actually 4.5 billion years old, should also believe the width of North America is 8 yards. That is the scale of the error. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Mettler Scale quotes by Brendan Gill
#22. We pile one skyscraper next to another, so the squirrels could leap from one top to the next, and pretty soon we're living in the bottom of a well. Psychologically you feel uneasy. Feel in shadow. Something is threatening you. You're trapped inside something that is beyond the human scale, and none of the things we need, like light and air and the sun on our skins is any longer present. #Quote by Brendan Gill
Mettler Scale quotes by Charlotte Kasl
#23. If you put sexual attraction on a scale of one to ten, where ten equals "you can't keep your hands off each other,"five equals "you can take it or leave it," and one equals "repulsed," to support a vibrant relationship, it should be at least a seven, preferably an eight, nine, or ten. With work, you might raise the attraction one notch, but because there is so much biochemistry involved in sexual attraction, it's hard to do much more than that. So if a sexual attraction doesn't evolve, remember, it's not anyone's fault and it's just the what is of your pairing, and you might make better friends than lovers.

Sexual attraction doesn't have to be instantaneous on first meeting, but it must eventually flower because it provides a basic glue for successful conjugal union. If we're not sexually alive to our beloved, it often leads to a subdued relationship, loneliness, affairs, or lots of fantasies. #Quote by Charlotte Kasl
Mettler Scale quotes by Anonymous
#24. Third, it puts more small-scale capitalists out of business. They can do nothing but join the working class. 'Thus', says Marx, 'the forest of uplifted arms demanding work becomes ever thicker, while the arms themselves become ever thinner. #Quote by Anonymous
Mettler Scale quotes by Thomas Sowell
#25. No government of the left has done as much for the poor as capitalism has. Even when it comes to the redistribution of income, the left talks the talk but the free market walks the walk.
What do the poor most need? They need to stop being poor. And how can that be done, on a mass scale, except by an economy that creates vastly more wealth? Yet the political left has long had a remarkable lack of interest in how wealth is created. As far as they are concerned, wealth exists somehow and the only interesting question is how to redistribute it. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Mettler Scale quotes by Ada Louise Huxtable
#26. Who's afraid of the big, bad buildings? Everyone, because there are so many things about gigantism that we just don't know. The gamble of triumph or tragedy at this scale - and ultimately it is a gamble - demands an extraordinary payoff. The trade center towers could be the start of a new skyscraper age or the biggest tombstones in the world. #Quote by Ada Louise Huxtable
Mettler Scale quotes by Thomas Piketty
#27. in wartime, economic activity decreases, inflation increases, and real wages and purchasing power begin to fall. Wages at the bottom of the wage scale generally rise, however, and are somewhat more generously protected from inflation than those at the top. #Quote by Thomas Piketty
Mettler Scale quotes by Hilaire Belloc
#28. The very large units of production and exchange have access to credit on a large scale, sometimes without any cover at all, merely upon the prospect of their success, and always upon terms far easier than are open to their smaller rivals. It is perhaps on this line of easier credit that large capital today does most harm to small capital, drives it out and ruins it. #Quote by Hilaire Belloc
Mettler Scale quotes by Walt Whitman
#29. If the United States haven't grown poets, on any scale of grandeur, it is certain that they import, print, and read more poetry than any equal number of people elsewhere
probably more than the rest of the world combined. Poetry (like a grand personality) is a growth of many generations
many rare combinations. To have great poets, there must be great audiences too. #Quote by Walt Whitman
Mettler Scale quotes by Don Winslow
#30. It's important to me that the reader goes on a ride with the characters, that you set context enough to know, "Okay, here's where we are in the world. Now we're just going to go inside this person's head, this guy's heart, this woman's ambitions and take it down to very, very small scale." #Quote by Don Winslow
Mettler Scale quotes by Tom Ford
#31. First of all, I love women. But I lust after beautiful women in the way that I lust after a beautiful piece of sculpture - this will probably get me in trouble - or a beautiful car. I believe everyone's on a sliding scale of sexuality. There are moments where I am sexually attracted to women. But it doesn't overpower my first impulse; my lust for them is the same as my lust for beauty in all things. #Quote by Tom Ford
Mettler Scale quotes by G.H. Hardy
#32. The Babylonian and Assyrian civilizations have perished; Hammurabi, Sargon and Nebuchadnezzar are empty names; yet Babylonian mathematics is still interesting, and the Babylonian scale of 60 is still used in Astronomy. #Quote by G.H. Hardy
Mettler Scale quotes by Steve McConnell
#33. Testing by itself does not improve software quality. Test results are an indicator of quality, but in and of themselves, they don't improve it. Trying to improve software quality by increasing the amount of testing is like trying to lose weight by weighing yourself more often. What you eat before you step onto the scale determines how much you will weigh, and the software development techniques you use determine how many errors testing will find. If you want to lose weight, don't buy a new scale; change your diet. If you want to improve your software, don't test more; develop better. #Quote by Steve McConnell
Mettler Scale quotes by Tanya Tagaq
#34. There are secrets hidden in our flesh. Our cells being born and dying with the same force that makes galaxies form and deconstruct. #Quote by Tanya Tagaq
Mettler Scale quotes by Bill Gates
#35. I could name about a dozen paths, and you'd like to have a whole bunch of research on all those paths, and then, eventually, at least four to five companies with really significant financing try and get to big scale, going down and really trying to prove it out. #Quote by Bill Gates
Mettler Scale quotes by Noam Chomsky
#36. Human nature is not totally fixed, but on any realistic scale, evolutionary processes are much too slow to affect it. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Mettler Scale quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#37. One man may not kill. If he kills a fellow-creature, he is a murderer. If two, ten, a hundred men do so, they, too, are murderers. But a government or a nation may kill as many men as it chooses, and that will not be murder, but a great and noble action. Only gather the people together on a large scale, and a battle of ten thousand men becomes an innocent action. But precisely how many people must there be to make it so? - that is the question. One man cannot plunder and pillage, but a whole nation can. But precisely how many are needed to make it permissible? #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Mettler Scale quotes by Ree Drummond
#38. He was standing there, smiling. His impish grin jumped out and grabbed me, as it always did.
"Well, good morning!" he said, wrapping his arms around my waist. His lips settled on my neck. I was glad I'd spritzed myself with Giorgio.
"Good morning," I whispered back, a slight edge to my voice. Equal parts embarrassed at my puffy eyes and at the fact that I'd slept so late that day, I kept hugging him tightly, hoping against hope he'd never let go and never back up enough to get a good, long look at me. Maybe if we just stood there for fifty years or so, wrinkles would eventually shield my puffiness.
"So," Marlboro Man said. "What have you been doing all day?"
I hesitated for a moment, then launched into a full-scale monologue. "Well, of course I had my usual twenty-mile run, then I went on a hike and then I read The Iliad. Twice. You don't even want to know the rest. It'll make you tired just hearing about it."
"Uh-huh," he said, his blue-green eyes fixed on mine. I melted in his arms once again. It happened any time, every time, he held me.
He kissed me, despite my gold FIGHT ON! T-shirt. My eyes were closed, and I was in a black hole, a vortex of romance, existing in something other than a human body. I floated on vapors. #Quote by Ree Drummond
Mettler Scale quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#39. Planning leads to dictatorship because dictatorship is the most effective instrument of coercion and the enforcement of ideals and, as such, essential if central planning on a large scale is to be possible. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
Mettler Scale quotes by Peter Drucker
#40. No matter how deeply wedded one may be to the free enterprise system (and I, for one, am wedded for life), one has to accept the need for positive government; one has to consider government action on a sizable scale as desirable rather than as a necessary evil. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Mettler Scale quotes by Mark Miodownik
#41. In a very real way, then, materials are a reflection of who we are, a multi-scale expression of our human need and desires. #Quote by Mark Miodownik
Mettler Scale quotes by Johnny Rich
#42. A thrilling story can be dull if told badly, but even the most mundane event can be elevated into a tale of epic scale by a good storyteller. #Quote by Johnny Rich
Mettler Scale quotes by James Harris Simons
#43. The best way to conduct research on a larger scale is to make sure everyone knows what everyone else is doing ... The sooner the better - start talking to other people about what you're doing. Because that's what will stimulate things the fastest. #Quote by James Harris Simons
Mettler Scale quotes by Deborah Smith
#44. Plus, publishing's inherent conservatism, means that what little did get through was weighted towards the commercial end of the scale, which is not the kind of writing that excites me. #Quote by Deborah Smith
Mettler Scale quotes by Aldous Huxley
#45. It is the unco-ordinated activity of large-scale production that leads to those periodical crises and depressions which inflict such untold hardship upon the working masses of the people in industrialized countries. Small-scale production carried on by individuals who own the instruments with which they personally work is not subject to periodical slumps. Furthermore, the ownership of the means of small-scale, personal production has none of the disastrous political, economic and psychological consequences of large-scale production-loss of independence, enslavement to an employer, insecurity of the tenure of employment. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
