Numbers quotes by Bill Ayers
#1. Large numbers of people are broken from the notion that the system is working for people, that the system is just or humane or peaceful. #Quote by Bill Ayers
Numbers quotes by Mark Steyn
#2. The British accomplished much with little; at the height of empire, an insignificant number of Anglo-Celts controlled the entire Indian subcontinent. A confident culture can dominate far larger numbers of people, as England did for much of modern history. By contrast, in an era of Massively Applied Desultoriness, we spend a fortune going to war with one hand tied behind our back ... So on we stagger, with Cold War institutions, transnational sensibilities, politically correct solicitousness, fraudulent preening pseudo-nation building, expensive gizmos, little will, and no war aims ... but real American lives. #Quote by Mark Steyn
Numbers quotes by Anthony Doerr
#3. He waits until dark. Marie-Laure sits in the mouth of the wardrobe, the false back open, and listens to her uncle switch on the microphone and the transmitter in the attic. His mild voice speaks numbers into the garret. Then music plays, soft and low, full of cellos tonight . . . #Quote by Anthony Doerr
Numbers quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#4. I can think of a number of areas in New York where three acres of nuclear waste would make the neighborhood safer to walk around in than it is now, and better lit. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Numbers quotes by Oliver Bierhoff
#5. Our junior national teams feature increasing numbers of kids from immigrant backgrounds, but who have grown up in Germany. Their roots are elsewhere, but they feel German. They draw on two cultures, and I believe that's been a real and visible factor in the football we've been playing. One of the best and abiding images was Cacau, a Christian with Brazilian roots, celebrating a goal with Mesut Ozil, a Muslim from a Turkish background. Ozil jumped on to Cacau's shoulders, and they gazed up into the stands, both wearing Germany shirts. It was wonderfully symbolic. #Quote by Oliver Bierhoff
Numbers quotes by Malcolm X
#6. Any number of my former brothers felt they would make heroes of themselves in the Nation of Islam if they killed me ... I knew that no one would kill you quicker than Muslim if he felt that's what Allah wanted him to do. #Quote by Malcolm X
Numbers quotes by Warren Buffett
#7. I have an 800 [freephone] number now that I call if I get the urge to buy an airline stock. I call at two in the morning and I say: "My name is Warren and I'm an aeroholic." And then they talk me down. #Quote by Warren Buffett
Numbers quotes by Uday Kotak
#8. It's true that I have always been very comfortable with numbers. #Quote by Uday Kotak
Numbers quotes by Jaron Lanier
#9. Making information free is survivable so long as only limited numbers of people are disenfranchised. As much as it pains me to say so, we can survive if we only destroy the middle classes of musicians, journalists, and photographers. What is not survivable is the additional destruction of the middle classes in transportation, manufacturing, energy, office work, education, and health care. And all that destruction will come surely enough if the dominant idea of an information economy isn't improved. #Quote by Jaron Lanier
Numbers quotes by David Letterman
#10. We thought New York City was home to 8 million rats. Turns out, that's a little high. The actual number is 2 million rats. That explains the light turnout for the midterm elections. #Quote by David Letterman
Numbers quotes by James J. Kilpatrick
#11. The chief difference between good writing and better writing may be measured by the number of imperceptible hesitations the reader experiences as he goes along. #Quote by James J. Kilpatrick
Numbers quotes by Charles Seife
#12. There are many ways to generate numerical falsehoods from data, many ways to create proofiness from even valid meaurements. Causuistry distorts the relationships between two sets of numbers. Randumbness creates patterns where none are to be found. Regression to the moon disguises nonsense in mathematical-looking lines or equations or formulae, making even the silliest ideas seem respectable. Such as the one described by this formula:
Callipygianness=(S+C)x(B+F)/T-V)
Where S is shape, C is circularity, B is bounciness, F ir firmness, T is texture, and V is waist-to-hip ratio. This formula was devised by a team of academic psychologists after many hours of serious research into the female derriere. Yes, indeed. This is supposed to be the formula for the perfect butt.

It fact, it's merely a formula for a perfect ass #Quote by Charles Seife
Numbers quotes by Nicholas Kristof
#13. Utah may well be the most cosmopolitan state in America. Vast numbers of young Mormons - increasingly women as well as men - spend a couple of years abroad as missionaries and return jabbering in Thai or Portuguese and bearing a wealth of international experience. #Quote by Nicholas Kristof
Numbers quotes by E. O. Wilson
#14. While ants exist in just the right numbers for the rest of the living world, humans have become too numerous. If we were to vanish today, the land environment would return to the fertile balance that existed before the human population explosion. Only a dozen or so species, among which are the crab louse and a mite that lives in the oil glands of our foreheads, depend on us entirely. But if ants were to disappear, tens of thousands of other plants and animal species would perish also, simplifying and weakening land ecosystems almost everywhere. #Quote by E. O. Wilson
Numbers quotes by Richard Leakey
#15. It's the next annihilation of vast numbers of species. It is happening now, and we, the human race, are its cause #Quote by Richard Leakey
Numbers quotes by Max Walker
#16. When I go and speak now at all sorts of conferences, later in the night there's always a better Maxie Walker than me. Billy Birmingham's legendary for basically being able to verbally kneecap any of a number of Australia's characters, particularly in the commentary box. #Quote by Max Walker
Numbers quotes by Nicholas Kristof
#17. The great divide is not between faiths, but one between intolerant zealots of any tradition and the large numbers of decent, peaceful believers likewise found in each tradition. #Quote by Nicholas Kristof
Numbers quotes by Bill Hicks
#18. If ur going to have a war on drugs, have them against ALL drugs, including alcohol, the number one offender. #Quote by Bill Hicks
Numbers quotes by Jay Leno
#19. Apparently, Osama bin Laden was killed with money and phone numbers sewn into his clothing. So we got him right before he left for summer camp. #Quote by Jay Leno
Numbers quotes by Arthur O'Shaughnessy
#20. But we, with our dreaming and singing,
Ceaseless and sorrowless we!
The glory about us clinging
Of the glorious futures we see,
Our souls with high music ringing:
O men! it must ever be
That we dwell, in our dreaming and singing,
A little apart from ye.
We are afar with the dawning
And the suns that are not yet high,
And out of the infinite morning
Intrepid you hear us cry -
How, spite of your human scorning,
Once more God's future draws nigh,
And already goes forth the warning
That ye of the past must die.
Great hail! we cry to the comers
From the dazzling unknown shore;
Bring us hither your sun and your summers;
And renew our world as of yore;
You shall teach us your song's new numbers,
And things that we dreamed not before:
Yea, in spite of a dreamer who slumbers,
And a singer who sings no more. #Quote by Arthur O'Shaughnessy
Numbers quotes by Harold Evans
#21. My wife [Tina Brown] co-founded the Daily Beast, so I have no hostility to the web or Internet. A number of print friends of mine regard it as the worst thing that's ever happened, but I don't. #Quote by Harold Evans
Numbers quotes by Wallace Shawn
#22. In terms of number of movies, I've been in an extraordinary amount. If you count only the minutes I'm onscreen, it's not so long. #Quote by Wallace Shawn
Numbers quotes by Tony Abbott
#23. I think it would be folly to expect that women will ever dominate or even approach equal representation in a large number of areas simply because their aptitudes, abilities and interests are different for physiological reasons #Quote by Tony Abbott
Numbers quotes by Christina Engela
#24. Human rights is a numbers game. Who is going to care if only 20 people pitch for a protest? #Quote by Christina Engela
Numbers quotes by Jonathan Lethem
#25. I don't really ask of myself a given word or page count or number of hours. To work every day, that's my only fetish. And there is a physical quality to it when a novel is thriving. #Quote by Jonathan Lethem
Numbers quotes by Georg Cantor
#26. In particular, in introducing new numbers, mathematics is only obliged to give definitions of them, by which such a definiteness and, circumstances permitting, such a relation to the older numbers are conferred upon them that in given cases they can definitely be distinguished from one another. As soon as a number satisfies all these conditions, it can and must be regarded as existent and real in mathematics. Here I perceive the reason why one has to regard the rational, irrational, and complex numbers as being just thoroughly existent as the finite positive integers. #Quote by Georg Cantor
Numbers quotes by Brian D. McLaren
#27. Growing numbers of us are acknowledging with grief that many forms of supremacy - Christian, white, male, heterosexual, and human - are deeply embedded not just in Christian history but also in Christian theology. We are coming to see that in hallowed words like almighty, sovereignty, kingdom, dominion, supreme, elect, chosen, clean, remnant, sacrifice, lord, and even God, dangerous viruses often lie hidden, malware that must be identified and purged from our software if we want our future to be different from our past. We are realizing that our ancestors didn't merely misinterpret a few Scriptures in their day; rather, they consistently practiced a dangerous form of interpretation that deserves to be discredited, rejected, and replaced by a morally wiser form of interpretation today. (We #Quote by Brian D. McLaren
Numbers quotes by Richard Wurmbrand
#28. I said to myself if Christianity is dead, I will sit at its tomb and will weep until it arises again, just as Mary Magdalene sat at the tomb of Jesus and wept until Jesus showed Himself. Then when I came out of prison I saw Christianity is not dead. The number of practicing Christians in Rumania according to the figures given by the Communists themselves in 20 years of Communist dictatorship has grown 300 percent. #Quote by Richard Wurmbrand
Numbers quotes by Imre Lakatos
#29. Mathematics does not grow through a monotonous increase of the number of indubitably established theorems but through the incessant improvement of guesses by speculation and criticism, by the logic of proofs and refutations. #Quote by Imre Lakatos
Numbers quotes by William J. Clinton
#30. A significant number of petroleum geologists believe that we will reach the global maximum of petroleum extraction within this decade or that we have already reached it. Peak Oil happened in 1970 in America, when over half of our oil that we gained from the soil was exhausted ... This is very disturbing, regardless of global warming. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Numbers quotes by Carl Sandburg
#31. I am stone and steel of your sleeping numbers;
I remember all you forget.
I will die as many times
as you make me over again. #Quote by Carl Sandburg
Numbers quotes by Ted Cruz
#32. We need a president who stands up, number one, and says, we will defeat ISIS. And number two, says the greatest national security threat facing America is a nuclear Iran. #Quote by Ted Cruz
Numbers quotes by Yann Martel
#33. If you took the city of Tokyo and turned it upside down and shook it you would be amazed at the animals that fall out: badgers, wolves, boa constrictors, crocodiles, ostriches, baboons, capybaras, wild boars, leopards, manatees, ruminants, in untold numbers. There is no doubt in my mind that that feral giraffes and feral hippos have been living in Tokyo for generations without seeing a soul. #Quote by Yann Martel
Numbers quotes by Chauncey Depew
#34. There have been many Presidents of the United States and the roll will be indefinitely extended. We have had a number of brilliant soldiers, but only one great general. #Quote by Chauncey Depew
Numbers quotes by Dean Koontz
#35. As an adult I discovered that I was a pretty good autodidact, and can teach myself all kind of things. And developed a great interest in a number of different things from how to build a street hot rod from the ground up to quantum mechanics, and those two different kinds of mechanics, and it was really in the sciences, quantum mechanics, molecular biology, I would begin looking at these things looking for ideas, but in fact you don't read it for ideas you read it for curiosity and interest in the subject. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Numbers quotes by J. P. Guilford
#36. The person who is capable of producing a large number of ideas per unit of time, other things being equal, has a greater chance of having significant ideas. #Quote by J. P. Guilford
Numbers quotes by J.T. Geissinger
#37. One of the first shrinks I went to after Cass died told me that the brain has a hardwired need to find correlations, to make sense of nonsensical data by making connections between unrelated things. Humans have evolved a universal tendency to seek patterns in random information, hence the existence of fortune-tellers and dream interpreters and people who see the face of Jesus in a piece of toast. But the cold, hard truth is that there are no connections between anything. Life - all of existence - is totally random. Your lucky lottery numbers aren't really lucky, because there's no such thing as luck. The black cat that crosses your path isn't a bad omen, it's just a cat out for a walk. An eclipse doesn't mean that the gods are angry, just as a bus narrowly missing you as you cross the street doesn't mean there's a guardian angel looking out for you. There are no gods. There are no angels. Superstitions aren't real, and no amount of wishing, praying, or rationalizing can change the fact that life is just one long sequence of random events that ultimately have no meaning. I really hated that shrink. #Quote by J.T. Geissinger
Numbers quotes by Zoe McLellan
#38. I dream in numbers, and I like to look up the meaning of numbers, and numbers stick out to me. #Quote by Zoe McLellan
Numbers quotes by Yitzhak Rabin
#39. I, serial number 30743, Major General Yitzhak Rabin, am a soldier in the army of peace. #Quote by Yitzhak Rabin
Numbers quotes by John Lawson
#40. The Indians, I was now speaking of, were not content with the common Enemies that lessen and destroy their Country-men, but invented an infallible Stratagem to purge their Tribe, and reduce their Multitude into far less Numbers. #Quote by John Lawson
Numbers quotes by Archie Shepp
#41. To some degree, yeah, because I have to play a certain number of originals that might be considered avant-garde material. I realize though, that only a few people in the audience actually know what that music is, or understand it. #Quote by Archie Shepp
Numbers quotes by Plautus
#42. How great in number are the little minded men. #Quote by Plautus
Numbers quotes by Edward Gibbon
#43. A generous intercourse of charity united the most distant provinces, and the smaller congregations were cheerfully assisted by the alms of their more opulent brethren. Such an institution, which paid less regard to the merit than to the distress of the object, very materially conduced to the progress of Christianity. The Pagans, who were actuated by a sense of humanity, while they derided the doctrines, acknowledged the benevolence of the new sect. The prospect of immediate relief and of future protection allured into its hospitable bosom many of those unhappy persons whom the neglect of the world would have abandonned to the miseries of want, of sickness, and of old age. There is some reason likewise to believe, that great numbers of infants, who, according to the inhuman practice of the times, had been exposed by their parents, were frequently rescued from death, baptised, educated, and maintained by the piety of the Christians, and at the expense of the public treasure. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Numbers quotes by Richard Rothstein
#44. Zoning thus had two faces. One face, developed in part to evade a prohibition on racially explicit zoning, attempted to keep African Americans out of white neighborhoods by making it difficult for lower-income families, large numbers of whom were African Americans, to live in expensive white neighborhoods. The other attempted to protect white neighborhoods from deterioration by ensuring that few industrial or environmentally unsafe businesses could locate in them. Prohibited in this fashion, polluting industry had no option but to locate near African American residences. The first contributed to creation of exclusive white suburbs, the second to creation of urban African American slums. #Quote by Richard Rothstein
Numbers quotes by Noam Chomsky
#45. Suppose that, say, China established military bases in Colombia to carry out chemical warfare in Kentucky and North Carolina to destroy this lethal crop [tobacco] that is killing huge numbers of Chinese. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Numbers quotes by Terry Gou
#46. They explained that if men want to put a large phone into their jeans, it has to be able to fit their buttocks. This is a company ranked worldwide number 1, number 2 in displays, and their marketing says this. #Quote by Terry Gou
Numbers quotes by Ada Lovelace
#47. 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
Numbers quotes by Malcolm X
#48. I've often reflected upon such black veteran numbers men as West Indian Archie. If they had lived in another kind of society, their exceptional mathematical talents might have been better used. But they were black. #Quote by Malcolm X
Numbers quotes by Sharon Weil
#49. Ursula, we have to talk ... ' he said, almost blurting. He couldn't believe he was in the "we have to talk" position. It was so unnerving. 'I have to ask you ... Let's be each other's emergency contact numbers.' This was his first concession towards commitment. #Quote by Sharon Weil
Numbers quotes by Steven Wright
#50. My grandfather gave me a watch. It doesn't have any hands or numbers. He says it's very accurate. I asked him what time it was. You can guess what he told me. #Quote by Steven Wright
Numbers quotes by Robert Loggia
#51. Lesson number one: Don't underestimate the other guy's greed. #Quote by Robert Loggia
Numbers quotes by Don King
#52. Who would you vote most likely to succeed? Bob Arum - White, Jewish, a graduate of Harvard, a Kennady Raider, United States Attorney. Don King - black, poor, out of the hard core getto of Cleveland, Ohio, numbers runner, a little confectionary dealer, ex-convict. Now who would you vote to succeed? It would be hands down ... Yet in this great land called America, I have out performed, outachieved, been more recognizable, did more, broke more records, and had more of a phenominal career, where Arum can't tie my shoe string. You understand? #Quote by Don King
Numbers quotes by Brock Yates
#53. If the numbers mean anything, they tell us that vastly more life is left in the reviled internal-combustion engine than any of the blue-state lefties could imagine. First, that madman Bush wins, and now this news. How depressing. #Quote by Brock Yates
Numbers quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#54. Even as a tree has a single trunk, but many branches and leaves, there is one religion but any number of faiths. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Numbers quotes by Bill Bradley
#55. We need to get beyond the politics of the moment, the deficit of the hour, the military count of the day, the numbers that rarely shape events. Our long-term interests must be in people and in the values of democracy and individual liberty. #Quote by Bill Bradley
Numbers quotes by Woody Hayes
#56. The only meaningful statistic is number of games won. #Quote by Woody Hayes
Numbers quotes by Ayn Rand
#57. When numbers are substituted for morality, and no individual can claim a right, but any gang can assert any desire whatever, when compromise is the only policy expected of those in power, and the preservation of the moment's "stability," of peace at any price, is their only goal - the winner, necessarily, is whoever presents the most unjust and irrational demands; the system serves as an open invitation to do so. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Numbers quotes by Clarence Francis
#58. You can buy a man's time; you can buy his physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of his skilled muscular motions per hour. But you cannot buy enthusiasm ... you cannot buy loyalty ... you cannot buy the devotion of hearts, mind or souls. You must earn these. #Quote by Clarence Francis
Numbers quotes by Jennifer Ouellette
#59. I succeeded at math, at least by the usual evaluation criteria: grades. Yet while I might have earned top marks in geometry and algebra, I was merely following memorized rules, plugging in numbers and dutifully crunching out answers by rote, with no real grasp of the significance of what I was doing or its usefulness in solving real-world problems. Worse, I knew the depth of my own ignorance, and I lived in fear that my lack of comprehension would be discovered and I would be exposed as an academic fraud
psychologists call this "imposter syndrome". #Quote by Jennifer Ouellette
Numbers quotes by Robert Musil
#60. There is a particular propensity in the world for people, wherever they appear in great numbers, to permit themselves collectively everything that would be forbidden them individually. #Quote by Robert Musil
Numbers quotes by Thomas Sowell
#61. The first rule of economics is that there is an infinite number of desires chasing a finite number of goods, services and resources. The first rule of politics is to ignore the first rule of economics. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Numbers quotes by Laura Lippman
#62. There are, of course, an infinite number of places where one is not, yet only one place where one actually is. #Quote by Laura Lippman
Numbers quotes by John F. Kennedy
#63. This increase in the life span and in the number of our senior citizens presents this Nation with increased opportunities: the opportunity to draw upon their skill and sagacityand the opportunity to provide the respect and recognition they have earned. It is not enough for a great nation merely to have added new years to lifeour objective must also be to add new life to those years. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Numbers quotes by Frank Shorter
#64. Numbers don't lie. You always seem to remember your workouts as being a little better than they were. It's good to go back and review what you do. #Quote by Frank Shorter
Numbers quotes by Dick Cheney
#65. Obviously, it's a big problem how do we provide quality care to the maximum number of people. And it's not an easy problem to solve. #Quote by Dick Cheney
Numbers quotes by Lee Trevino
#66. Seve Ballesteros was the best trouble-shot player who ever lived. It didn't matter how far in the woods you put that guy, he'd find a way to get out. But Seve inadvertently put a lot of big numbers on the scorecards of average players, because he inspired them to take dumb chances. #Quote by Lee Trevino
Numbers quotes by Susan Mann
#67. Technology is a cross-curriculum perspective running through the new Australia curriculum, and there are a number of technology subject areas as well which include coding which has not previously been part of the Australian Curriculum. #Quote by Susan Mann
Numbers quotes by B. Glen Rotchin
#68. He came to the conclusion that it was because there were some things you remembered with your head, like numbers, and other things you remembered with your heart, like shapes, colours, and shadows. He was a heart-memory type. #Quote by B. Glen Rotchin
Numbers quotes by Milton Friedman
#69. You had a flood of immigrants, millions of them, coming to this country. What brought them here? It was the hope for a better life for them and their children. And, in the main, they succeeded. It is hard to find any century in history, in which so large a number of people experience so great an improvement in the conditions of their life, in the opportunities open to them, as in the period of the 19th and early 20th century. #Quote by Milton Friedman
Numbers quotes by Daniel H. Pink
#70. The billable hours is a classic case of restricted autonomy. I mean, you're working on - I mean, sometimes on these six-minute increments. So you're not focused on doing a good job. You're focused on hitting your numbers. It's one reason why lawyers typically are so unhappy. And I want a world of happy lawyers. #Quote by Daniel H. Pink
Numbers quotes by Colum McCann
#71. She wanted to tell him so much, on the tarmac, the day he left. The world is run by brutal men and the surest proof is their armies. If they ask you to stand still, you should dance. If they ask you to burn the flag, wave it. If they ask you to murder, re-create. Theorem, anti-theorem, corollary, anti-corollary. Underline it twice. It's all there in the numbers. Listen to your mother. Listen to me, Joshua. Look me in the eyes. I have something to tell you. #Quote by Colum McCann
Numbers quotes by Mo'Nique
#72. Stand-up keeps you on your toes because it's instant. With TV and movies, you have to wait for the numbers to come in to see what happened at the box office. With stand-up, it's right there, that night, in your face. #Quote by Mo'Nique
Numbers quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#73. A votary of ahimsa cannot subscribe to the utilitarian formula (of the greatest good of the greatest number). He will strive for the greatest good of all and die in the attempt to realize that ideal. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Numbers quotes by Rico Love
#74. I'm very competitive; it's not enough just to have a few number ones. I want to have 200. #Quote by Rico Love
Numbers quotes by Fyodor Dostoevsky
#75. Wealth is the number of things one can do without. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Numbers quotes by Lloyd Alexander
#76. There's this huge number of desperate people. #Quote by Lloyd Alexander
Numbers quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#77. Mathematics is not just a "numbers game", it is a way of thinking. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Numbers quotes by Amber Tamblyn
#78. When I'm acting, I have zero control, and it's the scariest thing anyone can do in that field because, you know, your face is always the one that's out there in front of the camera, and any number of things can happen to you once you've done your work. It can be edited badly, it can be distributed badly, or it can not be distributed at all. And I've certainly experienced that; every actor has. #Quote by Amber Tamblyn
Numbers quotes by John Muir
#79. In the beauty and grandeur of individual trees, and in number and variety of species, the Sierra forests surpass all others #Quote by John Muir
Numbers quotes by Peter Drucker
#80. In a few hundred years, when the history of our time will be written from a long-term perspective, it is likely that the most important event historians will see is not technology, not the Internet, not e-commerce. It is an unprecedented change in the human condition. For the first time - literally - substantial and rapidly growing numbers of people have choices. For the first time, they will have to manage themselves. And society is totally unprepared for it. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Numbers quotes by Jupiter Hammon
#81. When I was at Hartford in Connecticut, where I lived during the war, I published several pieces which were well received, not only by those of my own colour, but by a number of the white people, who thought they might do good among their servants. #Quote by Jupiter Hammon
Numbers quotes by Anne Hathaway
#82. I would have played street cop number three if it meant getting to work with Chris Nolan. #Quote by Anne Hathaway
Numbers quotes by Felix Klein
#83. Everyone knows what a curve is, until he has studied enough mathematics to become confused through the countless number of possible exceptions. #Quote by Felix Klein
Numbers quotes by Haruki Murakami
#84. Forget about counting calories," she would always advise them. "Once you develop a knack for choosing the proper ingredients and eating in moderation, you don't have to pay attention to numbers. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Numbers quotes by Charlie Munger
#85. Mankind invented a system to cope with the fact that we are so intrinsically lousy at manipulating numbers. It's called the graph. #Quote by Charlie Munger
Numbers quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#86. There should be at least ten times the number of rifles in the country as there are now. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Numbers quotes by Jarod Kintz
#87. Sometimes I get depressed about my age. In March I'll be 26. If man weren't measured in numbers, but rather letters, I'd be turning Z. And then I'd be dead. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Numbers quotes by Archimedes
#88. Many people believe that the grains of sand are infinite in multitude ... Others think that although their number is not without limit, no number can ever be named which will be greater than the number of grains of sand. But I shall try to prove to you that among the numbers which I have named there are those which exceed the number of grains in a heap of sand the size not only of the earth, but even of the universe #Quote by Archimedes
Numbers quotes by Fred Hoyle
#89. The likelihood of the formation of life from inanimate matter is 1 to a number with 40,000 noughts after it (1040,000) ... It is big enough to bury Darwin and the whole theory of evolution. There was no primeval soup, neither on this planet nor any other, and if the beginnings of life were not random, they must therefore have been the product of purposeful intelligence. #Quote by Fred Hoyle
Numbers quotes by Robert Frost
#90. States strong enough to do good are but few.
Their number would seem limited to three. #Quote by Robert Frost
Numbers quotes by Samuel Johnson
#91. The number of such as live without the ardour of inquiry is very small, though many content themselves with cheap amusements, and waste their lives in researches of no importance. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Numbers quotes by Dan Castellaneta
#92. Operator! Give me the number for 911! #Quote by Dan Castellaneta
Numbers quotes by William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin
#93. When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meager and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarely, in your thoughts advanced to the stage of science. #Quote by William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin
Numbers quotes by Darren Hardy
#94. Once the founder has the vision, the key to achieving that vision is to delegate - as much and as fast as possible. Delegation is a form of quitting. Even if you are the most well-rounded and capable CEO of all time, you are still better off delegating functions to specialists. This allows you to multiply the size of your endeavor through large numbers of people rather than trying to do everything yourself. #Quote by Darren Hardy
Numbers quotes by Paul Bogard
#95. In these countless stars, in their clusters and colors and constellations, in the "shooting" showers of blazing dust and ice, we have always found beauty. And in this beauty, the overwhelming size of the universe has seemed less ominous, earth's own beauty more incredible. If indeed the numbers and distances of the night sky are so large that they become nearly meaningless, then let us find the meaning under our feet. #Quote by Paul Bogard
Numbers quotes by John R. Lott Jr.
#96. Are global temperatures rising? Surely, they were rising from the late 1970s to 1998, but 'there has been no net global warming since 1998.' Indeed, the more recent numbers show that there is now evidence of significant cooling [ ... ] Mankind is responsible for just a fraction of one percent of the effect from greenhouse gases, and greenhouse gases are not responsible for most of what causes warming (e.g., the Sun). #Quote by John R. Lott Jr.
Numbers quotes by James Richardson
#97. Though now, of all that could have been, there is nothing. #Quote by James Richardson
Numbers quotes by Jacob Bronowski
#98. It's said that science will dehumanize people and turn them into numbers. That's false, tragically false. Look for yourself. This is the concentration camp and crematorium at Auschwitz. This is where people were turned into numbers. Into this pond were flushed the ashes of some four million people. And that was not done by gas. It was done by arrogance, it was done by dogma, it was done by ignorance. When people believe that they have absolute knowledge, with no test in reality, this is how they behave. This is what men do when they aspire to the knowledge of gods.

Science is a very human form of knowledge. We are always at the brink of the known; we always feel forward for what is to be hoped. Every judgment in science stands on the edge of error and is personal. Science is a tribute to what we can know although we are fallible. In the end, the words were said by Oliver Cromwell: "I beseech you in the bowels of Christ: Think it possible you may be mistaken."

I owe it as a scientist to my friend Leo Szilard, I owe it as a human being to the many members of my family who died here, to stand here as a survivor and a witness. We have to cure ourselves of the itch for absolute knowledge and power. We have to close the distance between the push-button order and the human act. We have to touch people. #Quote by Jacob Bronowski

Numbers quotes by Howard Warren Buffett
#101. You get in a lot of trouble when you start putting fictitious numbers on value. I think to just say, we're going to say a dollar of cash is worth $2 all of a sudden, it isn't worth $2. It's worth a dollar today. And I think once you start putting phony figures into financial statements, you get in a lot of trouble. #Quote by Howard Warren Buffett

Numbers quotes by Roger Penrose
#103. In order for A to apply to computations generally, we shall need a way of coding all the different computations C(n) so that A can use this coding for its action. All the possible different computations C can in fact be listed, say as

C0, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5,...,

and we can refer to Cq as the qth computation. When such a computation is applied to a particular number n, we shall write

C0(n), C1(n), C2(n), C3(n), C4(n), C5(n),....

We can take this ordering as being given, say, as some kind of numerical ordering of computer programs. (To be explicit, we could, if desired, take this ordering as being provided by the Turing-machine numbering given in ENM, so that then the computation Cq(n) is the action of the qth Turing machine Tq acting on n.) One technical thing that is important here is that this listing is computable, i.e. there is a single computation Cx that gives us Cq when it is presented with q, or, more precisely, the computation Cx acts on the pair of numbers q, n (i.e. q followed by n) to give Cq(n).

The procedure A can now be thought of as a particular computation that, when presented with the pair of numbers q,n, tries to ascertain that the computation Cq(n) will never ultimately halt. Thus, when the computation A terminates, we shall have a demonstration that Cq(n) does not halt. Although, as stated earlier, we are shortly going to try to imagine that A might be a formalization of all the procedures that are ava #Quote by Roger Penrose

Numbers quotes by David Suzuki
#105. Despite the international scientific community's consensus on climate change, a small number of critics continue to deny that climate change exists or that humans are causing it. Widely known as climate change "skeptics" or "deniers," these individuals are generally not climate scientists and do not debate the science with the climate scientists ... #Quote by David Suzuki

Numbers quotes by Kevin Harrington
#109. I did something rather innovative that my competitors didn't like: I took out a full-page advertisement in the Yellow Pages that listed an office on the east side of Cincinnati, and another office on the west side, while every other heating/air-conditioning company had only one location and one phone number. I was the citywide company. In fact, our 'westside office' was just an answering service taking telephone message. From the start we appeared to be a big company. #Quote by Kevin Harrington

Numbers quotes by Noam Chomsky
#112. Among the many symbols used to frighten and manipulate the populace of the democratic states, few have been more important than "terror" and "terrorism." These terms have generally been confined to the use of violence by individuals and marginal groups. Official violence, which is far more extensive in both scale and destructiveness, is placed in a different category altogether. This usage has nothing to do with justice, causal sequence, or numbers abused. Whatever the actual sequence of cause and effect, official violence is described as responsive or provoked ("retaliation," "protective reaction," etc.), not as the active and initiating source of abuse. Similarly, the massive long-term violence inherent in the oppressive social structures that U.S. power has supported or imposed is typically disregarded. The numbers tormented and killed by official violence-wholesale as opposed to retail terror-during recent decades have exceeded those of unofficial terrorists by a factor running into the thousands. But this is not "terror," [...] "security forces" only retaliate and engage in "police action."

These terminological devices serve important functions. They help to justify the far more extensive violence of (friendly) state authorities by interpreting them as "reactive" and they implicitly sanction the suppression of information on the methods and scale of official violence by removing it from the category of "terrorism." [...] Thus the language is well-designed for #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Numbers quotes by Rudyard Kipling
#113. Small miseries, like small debts, hit us in so many places, and meet us at so many turns and corners, that what they want in weight, they make up in number, and render it less hazardous to stand the fire of one cannon ball, than a volley composed of such a shower of bullets. #Quote by Rudyard Kipling
Numbers quotes by Greg L. Hawkins
#114. Nothing has a greater impact on spiritual growth than reflection on Scripture. If churches could do only one thing to help people at all levels of spiritual maturity grow in their relationship with Christ, their choice is clear. They would inspire, encourage, and equip their people to read the Bible - specifically, to reflect on Scripture for meaning in their lives. The numbers say most churches are missing the mark - because only one out of five congregants reflects on Scripture every day. #Quote by Greg L. Hawkins

Numbers quotes by Horace Mann
#116. The experience of the ages that are past, the hopes of the ages that are yet to come, unite their voices in an appeal to us; they implore us to think more of the character of our people than of its vast numbers; to look upon our vast natural resources, not as tempters to ostentation and pride, but as means to be converted, by the refining alchemy of education, into mental and spiritual treasures-and thus give to the world the example of a nation whose wisdom increases with its prosperity, and whose virtues are equal to its power. #Quote by Horace Mann

Numbers quotes by Nancy Jo Sales
#118. For many girls, the pressure to be considered "hot" is felt on a nearly continual basis online. The sites with which they most commonly interact encourage them to post images of themselves, and employ the "liking" feature, with which users can judge their appearance and, in effect, rate them. When girls post their pictures on Instagram or Snapchat or Facebook, they know they will be judged for their "hotness," and in a quantifiable way, with numbers of likes. Social media, which gave us selfies, seems to encourage an undue focus on appearance for everyone, but for girls, this focus is combined with a pervasive sexualization of girls in the wider culture, an overarching trend which is already having serious consequences. #Quote by Nancy Jo Sales

Numbers quotes by Aleister Crowley
#121. Every individual has some qualities that endear him to some other. And per contra, I doubt if there is any class which is not detestable to some other class. Artists, police, the clergy, "reds," foxhunters, Freemasons, Jews, "heaven-born," women's clubwomen (especially in U.S.A.), "Methodys," golfers, dog-lovers; you can't find one body without its "natural" enemies. It's right, what's worse; every class, as a class, is almost sure to have more defects than qualities. As soon as you put men together, they somehow sink, corporatively, below the level of the worst of the individuals composing it. Collect scholars on a club committee, or men of science on a jury; all their virtues vanish, and their vices pop out, reinforced by the self-confidence which the power of numbers is bound to bestow. #Quote by Aleister Crowley

Numbers quotes by David B. McCoy
#127. But she did inject a new term and new degree of frankness into the debate on what was coming to be called the sexual revolution. Also, by this time she saw birth control as the panacea for all social ills: disease, poverty, child labor, poor wages, infant mortality, the oppression of women, drunkenness, prostitution, abortion, feeblemindedness, physical handicaps, unwanted children, war, etc. "If we are to develop in America a new [human] race with a racial soul, we must keep the birth rate within the scope of our ability to understand as well as to educate. We must not encourage reproduction beyond our capacity to assimilate our numbers so as to make the coming generation into such physically fit, mentally capable, socially alert individuals as are the ideal of a democracy" (Sanger, 1920). #Quote by David B.

Numbers quotes by Alberto Manguel
#131. Ordered by subject, by importance, ordered according to whether the book was penned by God or by one of God's creatures, ordered alphabetically or by numbers or by the language in which the text is written, every library translates the chaos of discovery and creation into a structured system of hierarchies or a rampage of free associations. #Quote by Alberto Manguel
Numbers quotes by Kristian Williams
#132. A total of 105 patrol officers died on the job in 2012. Less half of those (51) died as the result of violence, and another 48 died in traffic accidents. Between 1961 and 2012, 3,847 cops were murdered and 2,946 died in accidents - averaging about 75 murders and 58 fatal accidents in a typical year. Naturally it is not to be lost sight of that these numbers represent human lives, not widgets or sacks of potatoes. But let's also remember that there were 4,383 fatal work injuries in 2012. As dangerous professions go, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, policing is not even in the top ten. In terms of total fatalities, more truck drivers are killed than any other kind of worker (741 in 2012). A better measure of occupational risk, however, is the rate of work-related deaths per 100,000 workers. In 2012, for example, it was 17.4 for truck drivers. At 15.0 deaths per 100,000, policing is slightly less dangerous than being a maintenance worker (15.7) and slightly more dangerous than supervising the gardener (14.7). The highest rate of fatalities is among loggers at 127.8 per 100,000, just ahead of fishers at 117.0. The rate for all occupations, taken together, is 3.2 per 100,000 workers. Where are the headlines, the memorials, the honor guards, and the sorrowful renderings of Taps for these workers? Where are the mayoral speeches, the newspaper editorials, the sober reflections that these brave men and women died, and that others risk their lives daily, so that we might co #Quote by Kristian Williams

I'm a fighter now, and I want to evolve and make myself a well-rounded fighter, so obviously I'm not going to leave any stone unturned, when it comes to submissions, submission defense, striking, knees, leg kicks, and also learning to defend everything. It's not just an offensive sport because you're going to take some punches and you're going to give some punches. You've got to be able to handle both sides of the spectrum. I've brought in a number of highly trained trainers to help me evolve, and I believe we've left no stone unturned. #Quote by Brock Lesnar

Numbers quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#140. There are objects made up of two sense elements, one visual, the other auditory - the colour of a sunrise and the distant call of a bird. Other objects are made up of many elements - the sun, the water against the swimmer's chest, the vague quivering pink which one sees when the eyes are closed, the feeling of being swept away by a river or by sleep. These second degree objects can be combined with others; using certain abbreviations, the process is practically an infinite one. There are famous poems made up of one enormous word, a word which in truth forms a poetic object, the creation of the writer. The fact that no one believes that nouns refer to an actual reality means, paradoxically enough, that there is no limit to the numbers of them. #Quote by Jorge Luis Borges
Numbers quotes by Steven Pinker
#141. It is true that raids and battles killed a tiny percentage of the numbers that die in modern warfare. But in tribal violence, the clashes are more frequent, the percentage of men in the population who fight is greater, and the rates of death per battle are higher. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Numbers quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#142. There is nothing so annoying as to be fairly rich, of a fairly good family,
pleasing presence, average education, to be "not stupid," kindhearted,
and yet to have no talent at all, no originality, not a single idea
of one's own - to be, in fact, "just like everyone else."
Of such people there are countless numbers in this world - far more
even than appear. They can be divided into two classes as all men
can - that is, those of limited intellect, and those who are much cleverer.
The former of these classes is the happier.
To a commonplace man of limited intellect, for instance, nothing is
simpler than to imagine himself an original character, and to revel in that
belief without the slightest misgiving.
Many of our young women have thought fit to cut their hair short, put
on blue spectacles, and call themselves Nihilists. By doing this they have
been able to persuade themselves, without further trouble, that they
have acquired new convictions of their own. Some men have but felt
some little qualm of kindness towards their fellow-men, and the fact has
been quite enough to persuade them that they stand alone in the van of
enlightenment and that no one has such humanitarian feelings as they.
Others have but to read an idea of somebody else's, and they can immediately
assimilate it and believe that it was a child of their own brain.

I don't know what the effective ratio would be, but I've always had some sort of intuition that for every hour you spend in the company of other human beings, you need "x" number of hours alone.

In any organization of which I have played a leadership role, our trump card has never been great numbers but the way we worked with neighborhood people in conjunction with professionals in suits and ties. I want the Obama generation to try to understand this concept, and use it as a real yardstick for their ability to make change. My life personifies the straddling of two cultures: the world of Amherst and Yale and the world of Newark, New Jersey. As you will see, it is the power of the streets combined with the power of the suites that is the most effective mix for making things happen. Anybody who comes to you and says "we want change," without addressing the intersection of these two powerful forces in combination, is just whistling status quo. #Quote by Junius Williams
Numbers quotes by Willie Robertson
#167. Korie: Willie and I dated for about eight months, and then I was getting ready to leave for school at Harding University. Willie was still attending seminary school, and I wanted him to go to Harding University with me. But Willie said he wasn't leaving West Monroe. He wanted me to stay in West Monroe with him. We broke up before I left for school in August, and I'm sure he thought I'd find someone else at college, because that's what typically happens when you leave home. Willie called me one night in September 1991 after I had been gone a few weeks and said, "Let's get back together." I knew I loved him, but I told him I wasn't sure about it. He was trying to change my life, and it was really his way or no way. I just didn't know what to do.
"Let me think about it," I said. "I'll call you back tomorrow."

I was convinced she'd found someone else. I was telling all my buddies that it was over between us, and I was gathering other girls' phone numbers to prepare myself to move on. I just knew it was over, and I wasn't waiting to hear it from her the next day. I was convinced she wanted to end our relationship but couldn't muster the courage to tell me. Korie called me the next day, and I was ready to tell her that I didn't want to get back together anymore and that our relationship was over. I was certainly going to end it before she ended it. I just knew she already had a new boyfriend at Harding.
"I've got something I want to tell you," Korie told me.

#177. Huge numbers of people in London depend on their cars. Fuel duty is becoming a big factor in people's cost of living. I believe in trying to ease these burdens. #Quote by Boris Johnson
Numbers quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#178. You have wakened not out of sleep, but into a prior dream, and that dream lies within another, and so on, to infinity, which is the number of grains of sand. The path that you are to take is endless, and you will die before you have truly awakened. #Quote by Jorge Luis Borges
Numbers quotes by Adolf Hitler
#179. Our object must be to bring our territory into harmony with the numbers of our population. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Numbers quotes by Scott Adams
#180. Some of my best friends are Venture Capitalists, but let's face it, a hamster with Alzheimer's could make those kind of numbers. It's great work if you can get it. #Quote by Scott Adams
Numbers quotes by Michio Kaku
#181. When the Ramanujan function is generalized, the number 24 is replaced by the number 8. Thus the critical number for the superstring is 8 + 2, or 10. This is the origin of the tenth dimension. The string vibrates in ten dimensions because it requires these generalized Ramanujan functions in order to remain self-consistent. In other words, physicists have not the slightest understanding of why ten and 26 dimensions are singled out as the dimension of the string. It's as though there is some kind of deep numerology being manifested in these functions that no one understands. It is precisely these magic numbers appearing in the elliptic modular function that determines the dimension of space-time to be ten. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Numbers quotes by Amanda Ripley
#182. We had the schools we wanted, in a way. Parents did not tend to show up at schools demanding that their kids be assigned more challenging reading or that their kindergarteners learn math while they still loved numbers. They did show up to complain about bad grades, however. And they came in droves, with video cameras and lawn chairs and full hearts, to watch their children play sports. #Quote by Amanda Ripley
Numbers quotes by Charles C. Mann
#183. Scientists have established huge numbers of links between particular diseases and snippets of DNA, but in the great majority of cases, this has not yet been translated into treatments that can help cure patients. These treatments will come - tomorrow, or the day after. #Quote by Charles C. Mann
Numbers quotes by William Collins
#184. In numbers warmly pure and sweetly strong. #Quote by William Collins
Numbers quotes by Dan Harmon
#185. If somebody's cat happens to turn on the TV, my numbers can double. It's almost unrelated to what's really happening. #Quote by Dan Harmon
Numbers quotes by Guglielmo Marconi
#186. If we consider what science already has enabled men to know-the immensity of space, the fantastic philosophy of the stars, the infinite smallness of the composition of atoms, the macrocosm whereby we succeed only in creating outlines and translating a measure into numbers without our minds being able to form any concrete idea of it-we remain astounded by the enormous machinery of the universe. #Quote by Guglielmo Marconi
Numbers quotes by Allan McNish
#187. It is hard to be number one, and it is even harder to stay there because everyone is trying to knock you off the top. #Quote by Allan McNish
Numbers quotes by Kato
#188. It never happens that, when we go home and open the refrigerator, we see all infinitely many prime numbers there. #Quote by Kato
Numbers quotes by John Dewey
#189. 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
Numbers quotes by Samuel Johnson
#190. The hostility perpetually exercised between one man and another, is caused by the desire of many for that which only few can possess. Every man would be rich, powerful, and famous; yet fame, power, and riches, are only the names of relative conditions, which imply the obscurity, dependence, and poverty of greater numbers. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Numbers quotes by Pythagoras
#191. God built the universe on numbers. #Quote by Pythagoras
Numbers quotes by Erma Bombeck
#192. Everyone I talked to was a recording-the bank, the elevator, your office, the school, a wrong number. You used to be able to call a wrong number and get a person. #Quote by Erma Bombeck
Numbers quotes by John Mark Reynolds
#193. Austen knew nothing of our modern quest for equality. People are not numbers, and so they are never "equal." Some folk are higher placed than others, have more money, were more fortunate in their parents, or are brighter. These gifts do not come to us by merit but by the unfathomable providence of God. #Quote by John Mark Reynolds
Numbers quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#194. In 1700 the world was home to some 700 million humans. In 1800 there were 950 million of us. By 1900 we almost doubled our numbers to 1.6 billion. And by 2000 that quadrupled to 6 billion. Today there are just shy of 7 billion Sapiens. Modern #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Numbers quotes by Jon Foreman
#195. C.S. Lewis says that fiction is able to sneak past the watchful dragons of religion. It becomes more powerful to speak in poetry.
The song goes straight to the heart while the numbers
and the math of it will never be able to reach that. #Quote by Jon Foreman
Numbers quotes by Paullina Simons
#196. Time.
It was just a human invention. Like numbers. Like measuring things. Just something humans invented to make life a little easier, to order life into manageable blocks, to ease their minds around unmanageable things, to help them with infinity. #Quote by Paullina Simons
Numbers quotes by Bella Andre
#197. Let me help you. Let me be there for you. Let me be there beside you. Let me be your strength in numbers. #Quote by Bella Andre
Numbers quotes by Dick Cheney
#198. We haven't really had the time yet to pore through all those records in Baghdad. We'll find ample evidence confirming the link, that is the connection if you will between al Qaida and the Iraqi intelligence services. They have worked together on a number of occasions. #Quote by Dick Cheney
Numbers quotes by Mitt Romney
#199. I believe that as people will look at me, they'll see a person who has dealt with a number of very difficult and challenging circumstances and that I have been able to successfully navigate through those and create greater strength and greater opportunity. I believe that people recognize that I'm someone who has confidence in America's cause. #Quote by Mitt Romney
Numbers quotes by Bill Maher
#200. I would wager that the number of civilians that were killed [in] a typical week under Saddam Hussein was probably more than we killed during the weeks we were at war there. #Quote by Bill Maher
