Qualifications quotes by J.R. Ward
#1. Being female was not a disability in any sense of the word. But he had treated it as such, hadn't he. He had decided that because she was not male, in spite of all her qualifications and skills, she couldn't go out into conflict.
As if breasts suddenly made shit more dangerous. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Qualifications quotes by James Payn
#2. As a rule, anyone who can tell a good story can write one, so there really need be no mistake about his qualification; such a man will be careful not to be wearisome, and to keep his point, or his catastrophe, well in hand. #Quote by James Payn
Qualifications quotes by John Newton
#3. The wisdom that is from above, is not only pure, but also peaceable and gentle; and the lack of these qualifications, like the dead fly in the jar of ointment, will spoil the fragrance and efficacy of our labors. If we act in a wrong spirit - we shall bring little glory to God; do little good to our fellow creatures; and procure neither honor nor comfort to ourselves! If you can be content with showing your wit, and gaining the laugh on your side - you have an easy task! #Quote by John Newton
Qualifications quotes by John Amery
#4. All men will commence in their present rank and promotion will be open to all men alike, without any distinctions or qualifications, political or otherwise. #Quote by John Amery
Qualifications quotes by Max Lucado
#5. Confession is a radical reliance on grace. A proclamation of our trust in God's goodness. "What I did was bad," we acknowledge, "but your grace is greater than my sin, so I confess it." If our understanding of grace is small, our confession will be small: reluctant, hesitant, hedged with excuses and qualifications, full of fear of punishment. But great grace creates an honest confession. #Quote by Max Lucado
Qualifications quotes by Hannah Arendt
#6. It is in the nature of all party systems that the authentically political talents can assert themselves only in rare cases, and it is even rarer that the specifically political qualifications survive the petty maneuvers of party politics with its demands for plain salesmanship. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Qualifications quotes by Colman Domingo
#7. My only qualifications to be an actor were that I'm daring, and I'm a quick learner. I've always learnt by watching what other people do. It's the same with my writing. I write what I know. Structurally, I write in a very undisciplined way. #Quote by Colman Domingo
Qualifications quotes by Choi Sung-bong
#8. When I was three years old, I went to an orphanage, but because of the beatings, I ran away when I was five and lived alone by selling gum on the streets. For ten years, I lived like a fly. I was eventually able to graduate elementary and middle school through qualification examinations and the first thing that I ever liked was music. #Quote by Choi Sung-bong
Qualifications quotes by Hillary Rodham Clinton
#9. Will we ever have a woman President? We will.
I hope I'll be around to vote for her--assuming I agree with her agenda. She'll have to earn my vote based on her qualifications and ideas, just like anyone else.
When that day comes, I believe that my two presidential campaigns will have helped pave the way for her. We did not win, but we made the sight of a woman nominee more familiar. We brought the possibility of a woman president closer. We helped bring into the mainstream the idea of a woman leader for our country. That's a big deal, and everyone who played a role in making that happen should be deeply proud. This was worth it. I will never think otherwise. This fight was worth it. #Quote by Hillary Rodham Clinton
Qualifications quotes by Ruth Bader Ginsburg
#10. The Court ... [recognizes] ... the persistence of racial inequality and a majority's acknowledgement of Congress's authority to act affirmatively, not only to end discrimination, but also to counteract discrimination's lingering effects. Those effects, reflective of a system of racial caste [legal segregation and discrimination] only recently ended, are evident in our work places, markets, and neighborhoods. Job applicants with identical resumes, qualifications, and interview styles still experience different receptions, depending on their race. #Quote by Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Qualifications quotes by Sherman Alexie
#11. When Indian women begin the search for an Indian man, they carry a huge list of qualifications. He has to have a job. He has to be kind, intelligent, and funny. He has to dance and sing. He should know how to iron his own clothes. Braids would be nice. But as the screwed-up Indian men stagger through their lives, Indian women are forced to amend their list of qualifications. Eventually, Indian men need only to have their own teeth to get snagged. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Qualifications quotes by Rajneesh
#12. There is nothing in existence available without payment. If you want to know yourself, you will have to drop all false identities. They are your investments, they are your power, they are your prestige, they are your religion, they are your qualifications. It is difficult to drop them; it feels like death. #Quote by Rajneesh
Qualifications quotes by Raymond Chandler
#13. Sheriff Petersen just went right on getting re-elected, a living testimonial to the fact that you can hold an important public office forever in our country with no qualifications for it but a clean nose, a photogenic face and a close mouth. If on top of that you look good on a horse, you are unbeatable. #Quote by Raymond Chandler
Qualifications quotes by George Carlin
#14. In America, anyone can become president. That's the problem. #Quote by George Carlin
Qualifications quotes by Dalai Lama
#15. Unless we possess high spiritual qualifications, there is no doubt that the events life throws upon us will give rise to frustration, emotional turmoil, and other distorted states of consciousness. These imperfect states of mind in turn give rise to imperfect activities, and the seeds of suffering are ever planted in a steady flow. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Qualifications quotes by Emil M. Cioran
#16. So long as our untried senses and our naïve heart recognize themselves and delight in the universe of qualifications, they flourish with the aid and at the risk of the adjective, which, once dissected, proves inadequate, deficient. We say of space, of time, and of suffering that they are infinite; but infinite has no more bearing than beautiful, sublime, harmonious, ugly.... Suppose we force ourselves to see to the bottom of words? We see nothing - each of them, detached from the expansive and fertile soul, being null and void. The power of the intelligence functions by projecting a certain luster upon them, by polishing them and making them glitter; this power, erected into a system, is called culture - pryrotechnics against a night sky of nothingness. #Quote by Emil M. Cioran
Qualifications quotes by J.K. Rowling
#17. Personal happiness lies in knowing that life is not a checklist of acquisition. Your qualifications are not your life. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Qualifications quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#18. The art of conversation, or the qualification for a good companion, is a certain self-control, which now holds the subject, now lets it go, with a respect for the emergencies of the moment. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Qualifications quotes by Dave Smalley
#19. The survival of the fittest is the ageless law of nature, but the fittest are rarely the strong. The fittest are those endowed with the qualifications for adaptation, the ability to accept the inevitable and conform to the unavoidable, to harmonize with existing or changing conditions. #Quote by Dave Smalley
Qualifications quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#20. Biomasses are a biological reality that cannot be denied as existing, but even though they exist physically, yet they have not attained the height of Homo sapiens. Humans could be termed as biomasses when they don't fully put into use their human qualifications. Men and women that don't bother to think. Men and women that don't bother to notice things that are out of order. People who are indifferent about the happenings around them. Men and women that don't respond with solution to the challenges of the era. All of these people are united by one common name BIOMASSES. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Qualifications quotes by Harriet Martineau
#21. What office is there which involves more responsibility, which requires more qualifications, and which ought, therefore, to be more honorable than teaching?
Harriet Martineau #Quote by Harriet Martineau
Qualifications quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#22. For instance, Publius affirms that the electoral college "affords a moral certainty that the office of President will seldom fall to the lot of any man who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications." In fact, he speaks of "a constant probability of seeing the station filled by characters preeminent for ability and virtue," or "at least respectable" (No. #Quote by Alexander Hamilton
Qualifications quotes by Bear Grylls
#23. Whatever doesn't kill you only serves to make you stronger. And in the grand scheme of life, I had survived and grown stronger, at least mentally, if not physically.
I had come within an inch of losing all my movement and, by the grace of God, still lived to tell the tale. I had learned so much, but above all, I had gained an understanding of the cards I had been playing with.
The problem now was that I had no job and no income.
Earning a living and following your heart can so often pull you in different directions, and I knew I wasn't the first person to feel that strain.
My decision to climb Everest was a bit of a "do or die" mission.
If I climbed it and became one of the youngest climbers ever to have reached the summit, then I had at least a sporting chance of getting some sort of job in the expedition world afterward--either doing talks or leading treks.
I would be able to use it as a springboard to raise sponsorship to do some other expeditions.
But on the other hand, if I failed, I would either be dead on the mountain or back home and broke--with no job and no qualifications.
The reality was that it wasn't a hard decision for me to make. Deep down in my bones, I just knew it was the right thing to do: to go for it.
Plus I have never been one to be too scared of that old imposter: failure.
I had never climbed for people's admiration; I had always climbed because I was half-decent at it--and now I had an avenue, through E #Quote by Bear Grylls
Qualifications quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#24. The only person that is qualified for miracles is the person that has been qualified in the real life. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Qualifications quotes by Roger Lewis
#25. I think that one of the qualifications of artists should be a vow of celibacy. They should be confined to ruining only their own lives. #Quote by Roger Lewis
Qualifications quotes by A.W. Tozer
#26. It may be said without qualification that every man is as holy and as full of the Spirit as he wants to be. He may not be as full as he wishes he were, but he is most certainly as full as he wants to be. #Quote by A.W. Tozer
Qualifications quotes by Andrew Jackson
#27. Freemasonry is an ancient and respectable institution, embracing individuals of every nation, of every religion, and of every condition in life. Wealth, power and talents are not necessary to the person of a Freemason. An unblemished character and a virtuous conduct are the only qualifications for admission into the Order. #Quote by Andrew Jackson
Qualifications quotes by Julia Quinn
#28. Good manners forced her to say, somewhat grudgingly, "Your boots are very nice."
He grinned and regarded his footwear, which, though old, appeared very well-made. "Yes, they are, aren't they?"
"If a bit scuffed," she added.
"I shall polish them tomorrow," he promised, his somewhat superior look telling her that he refused to rise to her bait.
"I'm sorry," she said quietly. "That was uncalled for. Compliments should be freely given, without restrictions or qualifications. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Qualifications quotes by George Savile
#29. The best Qualification of a Prophet is to have a good Memory. #Quote by George Savile
Qualifications quotes by Jonathan Swift
#30. There is no talent so useful toward rising in the world, or which puts men more out of the reach of fortune, than that quality generally possessed by the dullest sort of men, and in common speech called discretion; a species of lower prudence, by the assistance of which, people of the meanest intellectuals, without any other qualification, pass through the world in great tranquillity, and with universal good treatment, neither giving nor taking offence. #Quote by Jonathan Swift
Qualifications quotes by E.A. Bucchianeri
#31. Come on let's see the degree."
Katherine unrolled her scroll displaying a long declaration in Latin affixed with a red seal proclaiming her a Master of Art.
"Imagine working for years to obtain a piece of paper we can hardly read " Katherine joked.
"And to officially declare you have talent " Suzy returned. #Quote by E.A. Bucchianeri
Qualifications quotes by Henry James
#32. I'm glad you like adverbs - I adore them; they are the only qualifications I really much respect. #Quote by Henry James
Qualifications quotes by Bertrand Russell
#33. First: never use a long word if a short word will do. Second: if you want to make a statement with a great many qualifications, put some of the qualifications in separate sentences. Third: do not let the beginning of your sentence lead the reader to an expectation which is contradicted by the end. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Qualifications quotes by Unarine Ramaru
#34. Qualifications or not without gratitude you not qualified enough to be a leader. #Quote by Unarine Ramaru
Qualifications quotes by Gordon Brown
#35. David Blunkett and I both take the same view that it is scandalous that someone from North Tyneside, Laura Spence, with the best qualifications and who wants to be a doctor, should be turned down by Oxford University using an interview system more reminiscent of the old school network and the old school tie than justice. It is about time for an end to that old Britain where what matters more are the privileges you are born with, rather than the potential you actually have. #Quote by Gordon Brown
Qualifications quotes by Earl Warren
#36. To separate children from others of similar age and qualifications solely because of their race generates a feeling of inferiority as to their status in the community that may affect their hearts and minds in a way unlikely ever to be undone. #Quote by Earl Warren
Qualifications quotes by Ron Paul
#37. I would say nobody is perfect. I don't know all the answers. I have don't want to run people's lives and run the world and run the economy. So, my qualifications are a little bit different. #Quote by Ron Paul
Qualifications quotes by Aristotle.
#38. Aristocracy is that form of government in which education and discipline are qualifications for suffrage and office holding. #Quote by Aristotle.
Qualifications quotes by Richard M. Nixon
#39. With all the power that a president has, the most important thing to bear in mind is this: You must not give power to a man unless, above everything else, he has character. Character is the most important qualification the president of the United States can have. #Quote by Richard M. Nixon
Qualifications quotes by Terry Wogan
#40. There's more to life than passing exams, and paper qualifications can only take you so far. A lot depends on luck, and on being in the right place at the right time, which was certainly true in my case. #Quote by Terry Wogan
Qualifications quotes by John Le Carre
#41. The longing we have to communicate cleanly and directly with people is always obstructed by qualifications and often with concern about how our messages will be received. #Quote by John Le Carre
Qualifications quotes by George Eliot
#42. Society never made the preposterous demand that a man should think as much about his own qualifications for making a charming girl happy as he thinks of hers for making himself happy. #Quote by George Eliot
Qualifications quotes by Osho
#43. The world of politics is basically of the instinctive level. It belongs to the law of the jungle: might is right. And the people who get interested in politics are the most mediocre. Politics needs no other qualifications except one - that is, a deep feeling of inferiority. #Quote by Osho
Qualifications quotes by Robbie Williams
#44. I'm not educated. I left school when I was 16, with no qualifications. #Quote by Robbie Williams
Qualifications quotes by Paul David Washer
#45. Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully.17 Any man who entertains even the remotest possibility that there is a personal and moral God must tremble at David's question. Unless he is an imbecile or his conscience has been seared beyond use, he must recognize that he does not possess the necessary qualifications to stand approved before the Judge of all the earth. #Quote by Paul David Washer
Qualifications quotes by Jeffrey Toobin
#46. The dilemma facing Bush and the Republicans was clear. If Marshall left, they could not leave the Supreme Court an all-white institution; at the same time, they had to choose a nominee who would stay true to the conservative cause. The list of plausible candidates who fit both qualifications pretty much began and ended with Clarence Thomas.

… There was awkwardness about the selection from the start. "The fact that he is black and a minority has nothing to do with this," Bush said. "He is the best qualified at this time." The statement was self-evidently preposterous; Thomas had served as a judge for only a year and, before that, displayed few of the customary signs of professional distinction that are the rule for future justices. For example, he had never argued a single case in any federal appeals court, much less in the Supreme Court; he had never written a book, an article, or even a legal brief of any consequence. Worse, Bush's endorsement raised themes that would haunt not only Thomas's confirmation hearings but also his tenure as a justice. Like the contemporary Republican Party as a whole, Bush and Thomas opposed preferential treatment on account of race - and Bush had chosen Thomas in large part because of his race. The contradiction rankled. #Quote by Jeffrey Toobin
Qualifications quotes by Andrew Saul
#47. A doctor's authority in America often exceeds his or her knowledge. Whole bodies of knowledge in healing are ignored because they are unorthodox and non-medical. A doctor's education seems exhaustive, yet MDs study so much about drugs and surgery - and so little about nutrition, fasting, herbal remedies, spinal manipulation, massage, vitamin and mineral therapy, homeopathy, and more - that we realize their qualifications are incomplete. #Quote by Andrew Saul
Qualifications quotes by Anthony Powell
#48. A company commander,' said Dicky Umfraville, when we met later that year, 'needs the qualifications of a ringmaster in a first-class circus, and a nanny in a large family. #Quote by Anthony Powell
Qualifications quotes by Tony Blair
#49. You have to be able to answer those questions plainly and clearly. There can be qualifications and "get-outs," but the answers must remain comprehensible, because they define you. They add up to a political, not merely personal, character. This requires thought, detailed analysis and intellectual rigour. Politics is a far more intellectual business than is often realized. You may think: Well, if it's simplicity that's required, you don't need a whole lot of detail. Wrong. The simplicity is not born of superficial analysis. It is simple precisely because it is the product of being worked through. #Quote by Tony Blair
Qualifications quotes by Jeanne Safer
#50. One of my teachers at the psychoanalytic institute where I trained used to say, only half humorously, that 'the most important prerequisite for a vocation as a psychotherapist is a depressed mother'; based on my history, I think that a suffering but inaccessible father and a damaged sibling should be added to the list of qualifications. #Quote by Jeanne Safer
Qualifications quotes by Knute Rockne
#51. The only qualifications for a lineman are to be big and dumb. To be a back, you only have to be dumb. #Quote by Knute Rockne
Qualifications quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#52. Proverbs are the literature of reason, or the statements of absolute truth, without qualification. Like the sacred books of each nation, they are the sanctuary of its intuitions. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Qualifications quotes by Fannie Barrier Williams
#53. Only men of moral and mental force, of a patriotic regard for the relationship of the two races, can be of real service as ministers in the South. Less theology and more of human brotherhood, less declamation and more common sense and love for truth, must be the qualifications of the new ministry that shall yet save the race from the evils of false teaching. #Quote by Fannie Barrier Williams
Qualifications quotes by Stuart Briscoe
#54. Qualifications of a pastor: the mind of a scholar, the heart of a child, and the hide of a rhinoceros #Quote by Stuart Briscoe
Qualifications quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#55. For the last century, almost all top political appointments [on the planet Earth] had been made by random computer selection from the pool of individuals who had the necessary qualifications. It had taken the human race several thousand years to realize that there were some jobs that should never be given to the people who volunteered for them, especially if they showed too much enthusiasm. As one shrewed political commentator had remarked: We want a President who has to be carried screaming and kicking into the White House - but will then do the best job he possibly can, so that he'll get time off for good behavior. #Quote by Arthur C. Clarke
Qualifications quotes by David Mamet
#56. The Chicago literary tradition is born not out of its Universities, but out of the sports desk and the city desk of its newspapers. Hemingway revolutionized English prose. His inspiration was the telegraph, whose use, at Western Union, taught this: every word costs something,
This, of course, is the essence of poetry, which is the essence of great prose. Chicagoan literature came from the newspaper, whose purpose, in those days, was to Tell What Happened. Hemingway's epiphany was reported, earlier, by Keats as " 'Beauty is truth, truth beauty' --that is all ye know earth, and all ye need to know." I would add to Keats' summation only this: "Don't let the other fellow piss on your back and tell you it's raining."
I believe one might theoretically forgive one who cheats at business, but never one who cheats at cards; for business adversaries operate at arm's length, the cardplayer under the strict rules of the game, period.
That was my first political epiphany.
And now, I have written a political book.
What are the qualifications for a Political Writer?
They are, I believe, the same as those of an aspiring critic: an inability to write for the Sports Page. #Quote by David Mamet
Qualifications quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#57. To practice tantra requires even greater compassion and greater intelligence than are required on the sutra path; thus, though many persons in the degenerate era are interested in tantra, tantra is not for degenerate persons. Tantra is limited to persons whose compassion is so great that they cannot bear to spend unnecessary time in attaining Buddhahood, as they want to be a supreme source of help and happiness for others quickly. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Qualifications quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#58. Once lay down the rule that the job comes first and you throw that job open to every individual, man or woman, fat or thin, tall or short, ugly or beautiful, who is able to do that job better than the rest of the world. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Qualifications quotes by Joey Comeau
#59. I am writing to apply for the position of bookkeeper. Attached, you will find my list of qualifications. I have been keeping books for four years now, and I am never going to give them back. #Quote by Joey Comeau
Qualifications quotes by Hedda Hopper
#60. At one time I thought he wanted to be an actor. He had certain qualifications, including no money and a total lack of responsibility. #Quote by Hedda Hopper
Qualifications quotes by Kevin Rudd
#61. In your telephone call, you [Malcolm Turnbull]said that neither you nor the Cabinet would be supporting my nomination. When I asked the reasons for this, you said that neither you nor the Cabinet has the view that I had the qualifications for the position [of UN's secretary-general]. #Quote by Kevin Rudd
Qualifications quotes by Richard Dawkins
#62. What would be wicked would be to say, 'I will not give this person a job because he belongs to this category of people, and there's some kind of statistical tendency for this category of person to be different from that category...' Treat them as individuals! Look at the qualifications of this individual, and forget about the group, race, whatever you want to call it, to which he belongs. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Qualifications quotes by Jay Griffiths
#63. Society understands the architecture of academia and knows there are relevant qualifications in different fields, and the media accepts the idea of specialisations and accords greater respect to those with greater expertise. With one exception: climate science. #Quote by Jay Griffiths
Qualifications quotes by Joe Wright
#64. I went to comprehensive school in North London and left without any qualifications [diploma]. And I was doing bits of acting and improv in a drama club in the evenings. Then I discovered you didn't need qualifications to go to art school, you just needed a body of work. #Quote by Joe Wright
Qualifications quotes by Dexter Fletcher
#65. I left school with no qualifications, but I was doing theatre and film work and thought that was the best thing since sliced bread. #Quote by Dexter Fletcher
Qualifications quotes by Rebecca Mead
#66. Best qualification for an aspiring journalist is curiosity. #Quote by Rebecca Mead
Qualifications quotes by Walter Lippmann
#67. Franklin D. Roosevelt is no crusader. He is no tribune of the people. He is no enemy of entrenched privilege. He is a pleasant man who, without any important qualifications for the office, would very much like to be President. #Quote by Walter Lippmann
Qualifications quotes by Samuel Richardson
#68. The companion of an evening, and the companion for life, require very different qualifications. #Quote by Samuel Richardson
Qualifications quotes by Ilona Andrews
#69. What are your qualifications for this job?" she asked. "I'm expendable," I said. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Qualifications quotes by Martin Lings
#70. Atheism or agnosticism can be the revolt of a virtual mystic against the limitations of exoterism; for a man may have in himself, undeveloped, the qualifications for following a spiritual path even in the fullest sense and yet at the same time - and this is more than ever possible in the modem world - he may be ignorant of the existence of religion's mystical dimension. His atheism or agnosticism may be based on the false assumption that religion coincides exactly with the outward and shallow conception of it that many of its so-called 'authorities' exclusively profess. There are souls which are prepared to give either everything or nothing. The inexorable exactingness of Sufism has been known to save those who could be saved by no other means: it has saved them from giving nothing by demanding that they shall give everything. #Quote by Martin Lings
Qualifications quotes by Caitlin Moran
#71. For in a way that feels quite unfair, the only way I can gain any qualifications at this thing
sex
that is seen as so societally important and desirable, is by being a massive slag
which is *not* seen as societally important and desirable. This often makes me furious. #Quote by Caitlin Moran
Qualifications quotes by Frank Kermode
#72. You sometimes hear people say, with a certain pride in their clerical resistance to the myth, that the nineteenth century really ended not in 1900 but in 1914. But there are different ways of measuring an epoch. 1914 has obvious qualifications; but if you wanted to defend the neater, more mythical date, you could do very well. In 1900 Nietzsche died; Freud published The Interpretation of Dreams; 1900 was the date of Husserl Logic, and of Russell's Critical Exposition of the Philosophy of Leibniz. With an exquisite sense of timing Planck published his quantum hypothesis in the very last days of the century, December 1900. Thus, within a few months, were published works which transformed or transvalued spirituality, the relation of language to knowing, and the very locus of human uncertainty, henceforth to be thought of not as an imperfection of the human apparatus but part of the nature of things, a condition of what we may know. 1900, like 1400 and 1600 and 1000, has the look of a year that ends a saeculum. The mood of fin de siècle is confronted by a harsh historical finis saeculi. There is something satisfying about it, some confirmation of the rightness of the patterns we impose. But as Focillon observed, the anxiety reflected by the fin de siècle is perpetual, and people don't wait for centuries to end before they express it. Any date can be justified on some calculation or other.

And of course we have it now, the sense of an ending. It has not diminished, and #Quote by Frank Kermode
Qualifications quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#73. Only after you have qualified yourself, you should then say that God will prosper your labor. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Qualifications quotes by Aristotle.
#74. There are three qualifications required in those who have to fill the highest offices, - (1) first of all, loyalty to the established constitution; (2) the greatest administrative capacity; (3) virtue and justice of the kind proper to each form of government. #Quote by Aristotle.
Qualifications quotes by Danielle LaPorte
#75. Your passion is your qualification. It's your leading qualification. #Quote by Danielle LaPorte
Qualifications quotes by Jane Austen
#76. You must give me leave to flatter myself, my dear cousin, that your refusal of my addresses is merely words of course. My reasons for believing it are briefly these: -- It does not appear to me that my hand is unworthy your acceptance, or that the establishment I can offer would be any other than highly desirable. My situation in life, my connections with the family of De Bourgh, and my relationship to your own, are circumstances highly in its favor; and you should take it into farther consideration that in spite of your manifold attractions, it is by no means certain that another offer of marriage may ever be made you. Your portion is unhappily so small that it will in all likelihood undo the effects of your loveliness and amiable qualifications. As I must therefore conclude that you are not serious in your rejection of me, I shall chuse to attribute it to your wish of increasing my love by suspense, according to the usual practice of elegant females.
(Mr. Collins, after proposing to Elizabeth Bennet and being refused, in Pride and Prejudice.) #Quote by Jane Austen
Qualifications quotes by Julian Barnes
#77. Back then, things were plainer: less money, no electronic devices, little fashion tyranny, no girlfriends. There was nothing to distract us from our human and filial duty which was to study, pass exams, use those qualifications to find a job, and then put together a way of life unthreateningly fuller than that of our parents, who would approve, while privately comparing it to their own earlier lives, which had been simpler, and therefore superior. #Quote by Julian Barnes
Qualifications quotes by Sally Ride
#78. The most important steps that I followed were studying math and science in school. I was always interested in physics and astronomy and chemistry and I continued to study those subjects through high school and college on into graduate school. That's what prepared me for being an astronaut; it actually gave me the qualifications to be selected to be an astronaut. #Quote by Sally Ride
Qualifications quotes by Jean-Baptiste Say
#79. With respect to the present time, there are few persons who unite the qualifications of good observers with a situation favourable for accurate observation. #Quote by Jean-Baptiste Say
Qualifications quotes by Eric Hoffer
#80. Failure in the management of practical affairs seems to be a qualification for success in the management of public affairs. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Qualifications quotes by Mark McKinnon
#81. Presidential primary debates are an important part of our political process. But the media has wrested complete control from the parties and candidates over everything, including the number, the format, the qualifications, and the moderators. And they've become a circus. #Quote by Mark McKinnon
Qualifications quotes by Neal Stephenson
#82. So in order to accommodate the Pioneers who would begin arriving in a few weeks, the Arkitects sent up Scouts. The qualifications for being a Scout seemed to be a shocking level of physical endurance, a complete disregard for mortal danger, and some knowledge of how to exist in a space suit. All of them were Russians. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Qualifications quotes by Charles Hartshorne
#83. All things, in all their aspects, consist exclusively of 'souls', that is, of various kinds of subjects, or units of experiencing, with their qualifications, relations, and groupings, or communities. #Quote by Charles Hartshorne
Qualifications quotes by Noam Chomsky
#84. MAN: Mr. Chomsky, I'm wondering what specific qualifications you have to be able to speak all around the country about world affairs?

None whatsoever. I mean, the qualifications that I have to speak on world affairs are exactly the same ones Henry Kissinger has, and Walt Rostow has, or anybody in the Political Science Department, professional historians - none, none that you don't have. The only difference is, I don't pretend to have qualifications, nor do I pretend that qualifications are needed. I mean, if somebody were to ask me to give a talk on quantum physics, I'd refuse - because I don't understand enough. But world affairs are trivial: there's nothing in the social sciences or history or whatever that is beyond the intellectual capacities of an ordinary fifteen-year-old. You have to do a little work, you have to do some reading, you have to be able to think, but there's nothing deep - if there are any theories around that require some special kind of training to understand, then they've been kept a carefully guarded secret.
In fact, I think the idea that you're supposed to have special qualifications to talk about world affairs is just another scam - it's kind of like Leninism [position that socialist revolution should be led by a "vanguard" party]: it's just another technique for making the population feel that they don't know anything, and they'd better just stay out of it and let us smart guys run it.

#85. You can get people the qualifications; But you can't teach them the qualities they're going to need. You can't teach integrity, a drive for excellence, refusal to quit under pressure. It's too late to build that into people you're going to hire. #Quote by Roger Ailes
Qualifications quotes by Donald Horne
#86. Only in sport? The qualification would seem meaningless to many Australians. What also is there that matters as much as sport? It is only in sport that many Australians express those approaches to life that are un-Australian if expressed in any other connection. #Quote by Donald Horne
Qualifications quotes by Oscar Pistorius
#87. Out of the tens of thousands of prosthetic legs they've made, there's never been any 400-meter athletes run under 50 seconds. So, if this was such a technologically advanced prosthetic leg, then how come not everyone's qualifying, or coming close to the qualification time, then? #Quote by Oscar Pistorius
Qualifications quotes by Judy LaMarsh
#88. It will be, I suppose, a foolhardy Government that tries to push through legislation making knowledge of both official languages one of the qualifications for election to the House of Commons or appointment to the Senate, but maybe it will have to come to this as a price we must pay for equality of the two great language groups of our founding fathers. #Quote by Judy LaMarsh
Qualifications quotes by John Oliver
#89. There's never any time I think I'm a real journalist, because I don't have any of the qualifications or the intentions for that. #Quote by John Oliver
Qualifications quotes by Hector Hugh Munro
#90. It occurred to me that I would like to be a poet. The chief qualification, I understand is that you must be born. Well, I hunted up my birth certificate, and found that I was all right on that score. #Quote by Hector Hugh Munro
Qualifications quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#91. In action a great heart is the chief qualification. In work, a great head. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Qualifications quotes by Derek Jacobi
#92. You have to get through the Hamlet hoop as a young actor. Your classical qualifications are based on the quality of your Hamlet. And then, as an older actor, you have to get through the Lear hoop. And I'm approaching the Lear hoop. #Quote by Derek Jacobi
Qualifications quotes by Paramahansa Yogananda
#93. Another qualification of success is that we not only bring harmonious and beneficial results to ourselves, but also share those benefits with others. #Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda
Qualifications quotes by Alexander Pope
#94. I believe no one qualification is so likely to make a good writer, as the power of rejecting his own thoughts. #Quote by Alexander Pope
Qualifications quotes by Zaha Hadid
#95. Good education is so important. We do need to look at the way people are taught. It not just about qualifications to get a job. It's about being educated. #Quote by Zaha Hadid
Qualifications quotes by Eric Ambler
#96. At this point doubts started to creep in. One was always reading of
young men running away to sea, or people shipping as deck-hands and
working their passages. There seemed to be no special qualifications
needed. No ropes had to be spliced. No rigging had to be climbed. All
you did was paint the anchor, chip rust off the deck plating and say
'aye, aye, sir', when addressed by an officer. It was a tough life and
you met tough men. There were weevils in the ship's biscuits and you had
little to eat but skilly. Quarrels were settled with bare fists and you
went about naked to the waist. But one of the crew always had a
concertina and there were sing-songs when the day's work was done. In
after life you wrote a book about it. #Quote by Eric Ambler
Qualifications quotes by Debasish Mridha
#97. Qualifications do not always define a true education. Qualifications are like obtaining a valuable candle while a true education is the essence of light that the candle will reflect. The ultimate purpose of qualifications is to find a great job, and the ultimate purpose of education is to create a great life. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Qualifications quotes by Harold Evans
#98. It's a fascinating time, I think. I do believe that with all the qualifications I've said - [such as] the uncertain accuracy of the web - nonetheless the access to speeches, documents is unparalleled with the ease of gathering information. If I had had that access when I was an editor or coming up, it would have made my life so much easier. As it was, everything took so much longer. #Quote by Harold Evans
Qualifications quotes by Ayn Rand
#99. he watched it with curiosity. It was strange to be conscious of another person's existence, to feel it as a close, urgent necessity; a necessity without qualifications, neither pleasant nor painful, merely final like an ultimatum. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Qualifications quotes by George Weah
#100. They say I do not have the qualifications to be president, that I do not have education. Well, I would never divide the Liberian people. #Quote by George Weah
Qualifications quotes by Jean Donaldson
#101. Dogs (like rats) are multitalented but they are also not very smart the way humans are. A recent book, devoted to the intelligence of dogs, is 250+ pages long (Stanley Coren, The Intelligence of Dogs: A Guide to the Thoughts, Emotions, and Inner Lives of Our Canine Companions, 1994). Interestingly, despite careful qualifications by Coren regarding definitions, the ranking of breeds by intelligence literally made newspaper headlines. We are obviously fascinated by the notion that dogs - or at least certain breeds of dog - might, just might, be really, really smart. It all makes as much sense as evaluating humans on our ability to sniff for bombs or echo-locate. #Quote by Jean Donaldson
Qualifications quotes by Victor Hugo
#102. At another time, on receiving a notification of the decease of a gentleman of the country-side, wherein not only the dignities of the dead man, but also the feudal and noble qualifications of all his relatives, spread over an entire page: "What a stout back Death has!" he exclaimed. "What a strange burden of titles is cheerfully imposed on him, and how much wit must men have, in order thus to press the tomb into the service of vanity! #Quote by Victor Hugo
Qualifications quotes by Peter Ustinov
#103. People who reach the top of the tree are only those who haven't got the qualifications to detain them at the bottom. #Quote by Peter Ustinov
Qualifications quotes by Charles Hodge
#104. Christ has not only ordained that there shall be such officers in his Church - he has not only specified their duties and prerogatives - but he gives the requisite qualifications, and calls those thus qualified, and by that call gives them their official authority. #Quote by Charles Hodge
Qualifications quotes by Sinclair B. Ferguson
#105. What is a godly pastor, after all, but one who is like God, with a heart of grace; someone who sees God bringing prodigals home and runs to embrace them, weeps for joy that they have been brought home, and kisses them - asking no questions - no qualifications or conditions required? #Quote by Sinclair B. Ferguson
Qualifications quotes by Thomas Sowell
#106. But that such an administration could be elected in the first place, headed by a man whose only qualifications to be President of the United States at a dangerous time in the history of the world were rhetoric, style and symbolism - and whose animus against the values and institutions of America had been demonstrated repeatedly over a period of decades beforehand - speaks volumes about the inadequacies of our educational system and the degeneration of our culture. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Qualifications quotes by Chogyam Trungpa
#107. Watchfulness is experiencing a sudden glimpse of something without any qualifications - just the sudden glimpse itself. #Quote by Chogyam Trungpa
Qualifications quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#108. Once people decide they want you to do something, they don't really care what your qualifications are. However you describe yourself becomes proof that you're the ideal candidate. This is true in journalism, and in life. #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Qualifications quotes by Noam Chomsky
#109. To speak truth to power is not a particularly honorable vocation. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Qualifications quotes by Aung San Suu Kyi
#110. We want to empower our people; we want to strengthen them; we want to provide them with the kind of qualifications that will enable them to build up their own country themselves. #Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi
Qualifications quotes by Veronica Roth
#111. The division is based on knowledge, based on qualifications - but as I learned from the factionless, a system that relies on a group of uneducated people to do its dirty work without giving them a way to rise is hardly fair. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Qualifications quotes by Bonnie Tyler
#112. I went to all the shops in the village looking for work. I didn't have any qualifications. I ended up working in a grocery shop for about a year and then went to a confectioner, where I earned three pounds 10 shillings. I gave the money to my mother and father, but I also managed to save five shillings a week. #Quote by Bonnie Tyler
Qualifications quotes by Imre Kertesz
#113. It is often said of me - some intend it as a compliment, others as a complaint - that I write about a single subject: the Holocaust. I have no quarrel with that. Why shouldn't I accept, with certain qualifications, the place assigned to me on the shelves of libraries? #Quote by Imre Kertesz
Qualifications quotes by Russell Baker
#114. It takes great self-confidence to write a newspaper column. Some might say it takes arrogance. Be that as it may, my willingness to pronounce on a great many matters of which I have little or no knowledge is one of my prime qualifications for this trade. #Quote by Russell Baker
Qualifications quotes by Edward Gibbon
#115. To the love of pleasure we may therefore ascribe most of the agreeable, to the love of action we may attribute most of the useful and respectable, qualifications. The character in which both the one and the other should be united and harmonised would seem to constitute the most perfect idea of human nature. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Qualifications quotes by Harper Lee
#116. There was nothing whatever wrong with Mr. Stone, except that he possessed all the necessary qualifications for a certified public accountant: he did not like people, he was quick with numbers, he had no sense of humor, and he was butt-headed. #Quote by Harper Lee
Qualifications quotes by John-Talmage Mathis
#117. Listen to people; nothing is accomplished if you dismiss other viewpoints. And of most importance: be confident. Have confidence in yourself. Have confidence in your resume - in your skills and in your qualifications. Be willing to learn. #Quote by John-Talmage Mathis
Qualifications quotes by Bill Vaughan
#118. Patience is a most necessary qualification for business; many a man would rather you heard his story than granted his request. One must seem to hear the unreasonable demands of the petulant, unmoved, and the tedious details of the dull, untired. That is the least price that a man must pay for a high station. #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Qualifications quotes by Joe Torre
#119. I have great confidence in Rick Caruso's unique qualifications and his ability to lead a successful bid for the Los Angeles Dodgers. #Quote by Joe Torre
Qualifications quotes by Randy Barnett
#120. Given her lack of experience, does anyone doubt that Ms. Miers's only qualification to be a Supreme Court justice is her close connection to the president? Would the president have ever picked her if she had not been his lawyer, his close confidante, and his adviser? #Quote by Randy Barnett
Qualifications quotes by David Platt
#121. Despite the obvious qualifications of all of Jesse's other sons, God appoints the unlikely David to become the king of Israel. #Quote by David Platt
Qualifications quotes by Maddy Malhotra
#122. You get a job when you have the right qualifications and work experience. Similarly, individuals should be allowed to be parents (considering that parenting is a full time job for at least 16 years) only when they completely understand how life/mind works and have implemented it in their lives. #Quote by Maddy Malhotra
Qualifications quotes by Benedict Groeschel
#123. Even when we do not choose evil, we choose the good so half heartedly and with so many qualifications that mediocrity becomes our canonized statis quo. #Quote by Benedict Groeschel
Qualifications quotes by Sasha Jackson
#124. It's one of the main things that I love about my job. You are never playing yourself, so I really love that I get to be someone else, play a different character and take on that persona, but I also have to take on their qualifications. #Quote by Sasha Jackson
Qualifications quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#125. I saw that he was going to marry her, for family, perhaps political reasons; because her rank and connexions suited him; I felt he had not given her his love, and that her qualifications were ill adapted to win from him that treasure. This was the point – this was where the nerve was touched and teased – this was where the fever was sustained and fed: she could not charm him. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Qualifications quotes by Matthias B. Tallmadge
#126. Look well to the characters and qualifications of those you elect and raise to office and places of trust. #Quote by Matthias B. Tallmadge
Qualifications quotes by Alberto Gonzales
#127. We respect the role of the Senate. We respect the authority of the Senate to look at the qualifications of Judge Roberts, and at the end of the day I'm optimistic that if given a fair hearing and a fair opportunity, that he will be confirmed. #Quote by Alberto Gonzales
Qualifications quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#128. Everyone is supposed to be on equal ground and the equal ground is supposed to be based on qualifications. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Qualifications quotes by Paul Arden
#129. Have you noticed how the cleverest people at school are not those who make it in life?
People who are conventionally clever get jobs on their qualifications (the past), not on their desire to succeed (the future).
Very simply, they get overtaken by those who continually strive to be better than they are. #Quote by Paul Arden
Qualifications quotes by Pierre Bourdieu
#130. The essentially contradictory phrase 'legitimate autodidacticism' is intended to indicate the difference in kind between the highly valued 'extra-curricular' culture of the holder of academic qualifications and the illegitimate extra-curricular culture of the autodidact. #Quote by Pierre Bourdieu
Qualifications quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#131. Humans could be termed as biomasses when they don't fully put into use their human qualifications. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Qualifications quotes by Charles Babbage
#132. Long intervals frequently elapse between the discovery of new principles in science and their practical application ... Those intellectual qualifications, which give birth to new principles or to new methods, are of quite a different order from those which are necessary for their practical application. #Quote by Charles Babbage
Qualifications quotes by Anna Comnena
#133. For they do not look through to the soul, nor have a keen eye for virtue, but they stop at the outward excellencies of the body, and admire daring, and strength, speed in running, and size, and consider these as fit qualifications for the purple robe and diadem. #Quote by Anna Comnena
Qualifications quotes by Samir Kassir
#134. Still, there is space for this secular movement that has become frustrated with the liberal experience. In my opinion, there is a need for an effort that helps he establishment of social justice while taking into consideration all the qualifications and reservations against the welfare state. #Quote by Samir Kassir
Qualifications quotes by Guido Palau
#135. I didn't do great in school. I didn't have many options. I mean, I'd like to have gone to art college, but I didn't have the grades. I didn't have any qualifications. But I had some friends who were hairdressers, so I just thought, Well, I'll have a go at it. #Quote by Guido Palau
Qualifications quotes by Claude C. Hopkins
#136. Literary qualifications have no more to do with it than oratory has with salesmanship. One must be able to express himself briefly, clearly, and convincingly, just as a salesman must. #Quote by Claude C. Hopkins
Qualifications quotes by Gemma Corradi Fiumara
#137. It almost seems that 'culture' requires aspirants to participate according to their specific qualifications, to become adherents to an immense task of justifying a 'logic' that knows very well how to say practically everything and hardly knows how to listen. #Quote by Gemma Corradi Fiumara
Qualifications quotes by Tobias Smollett
#138. Not that there is any thing disagreeable about his person, but there is a total want of that nameless charm which captivates and controuls the inchanted spirit - at least, he appears to me to have this defect; but if he had all the engaging qualifications which a man can possess, they would be excited in vain against that constancy, which, I flatter myself, is the characteristic of my nature. No, #Quote by Tobias Smollett
Qualifications quotes by David A. Bednar
#139. Ordinary men are given the authority of the priesthood. Worthiness and willingness - not experience, expertise, or education - are the qualifications for priesthood ordination. #Quote by David A. Bednar
Qualifications quotes by Stanley Schmidt
#140. Ideally, I'd like every issue to include a diverse group of stories that meet the qualifications sketched above, but covering a wide range of specific matter and flavour. #Quote by Stanley Schmidt
Qualifications quotes by Connie Brockway
#141. The heart doesn't ask permission. It is singularly unconcerned with the qualifications of those it chooses to love. It mocks the intellect, it subjugates reason, and it holds hostage the will to survive. #Quote by Connie Brockway
Qualifications quotes by James Francis
#142. Although I entertain great respect and regard for the female sex I consider the qualifications of the ladies to be already sufficiently charming without adding to their influence in society by conferring on them the right to vote for members of the legislature. #Quote by James Francis
Qualifications quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#143. This process of election affords a moral certainty that the office of President will seldom fall to the lot of any many who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications. #Quote by Alexander Hamilton
Qualifications quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#144. Pride differs in many things from vanity, and by gradations that never blend, although they may be somewhat indistinguishable. Pride may perhaps be termed a too high opinion of ourselves founded on the overrating of certain qualities that we do actually possess; whereas vanity is more easily satisfied, and can extract a feeling of self-complacency from qualifications that are imaginary. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Qualifications quotes by J.B. Priestley
#145. Nearly everything possible had been done to spoil the game: the heavy financial interest; the absurd transfer and player-selling system; the lack of any birth or residential qualifications; the absurd publicity given to every feature of it by the press; the monstrous partisanships of the crowds. #Quote by J.B. Priestley
Qualifications quotes by Luther Allison
#146. I had the qualifications, but I was not chosen. #Quote by Luther Allison
Qualifications quotes by Sojourner Truth
#147. I don't read such small stuff as letters, I read men and nations. I can see through a millstone, though I can't see through a spelling-book. What a narrow idea a reading qualification is for a voter! #Quote by Sojourner Truth
Qualifications quotes by Dallin H. Oaks
#148. Members who listen to the voice of the Church need not be on guard against being misled. They have no such assurance for what they hear from alternate voices.

Local Church leaders also have a responsibility to review the content of what is taught in classes or presented in worship services, as well as the spiritual qualifications of those they use as teachers or speakers. Leaders must do all they can to avoid expressed or implied Church endorsement for teachings that are not orthodox or for teachers who will use their Church position or prominence to promote something other than gospel truth. . . .

In any case, volunteers do not speak for the Church. As long as Church leaders feel they should not participate in an event where the Church or its doctrines are discussed, the overall presentation will be incomplete and unbalanced. In such circumstances, no one should think that the Church's silence constitutes an admission of facts asserted in that setting. . . .

I have seen some persons attempt to understand or undertake to criticize the gospel or the Church by the method of reason alone, unaccompanied by the use or recognition of revelation. When reason is adopted as the only - or even the principal - method of judging the gospel, the outcome is predetermined. One cannot find God or understand his doctrines and ordinances by closing the door on the means He has prescribed for receiving the truths of his gospel. That is why gospel truths have bee #Quote by Dallin H. Oaks
Qualifications quotes by Thomas A. Edison
#149. The very first thing an executive must have is a fine memory. Of course it does not follow that a man with a fine memory is necessarily a fine executive. But if he has the memory he has the first qualification, and if he has not the memory nothing else matters. #Quote by Thomas A. Edison
Qualifications quotes by Stephen E. Ambrose
#150. Of courage undaunted, possessing a firmness and perseverance of purpose which nothing but impossibilities could divert from its direction, careful as a father of those committed to his charge, yet steady in the maintenance of order and discipline, intimate with the Indian character, customs, and principles; habituated to the hunting life, guarded by exact observation of the vegetables and animals of his own country against losing time in the description of objects already possessed; honest, disinterested, liberal, of sound understanding, and a fidelity to truth so scrupulous that whatever he should report would be as certain as if seen by ourselves – with all these qualifications as if selected and implanted by nature in one body for this express purpose, I could have no hesitation in confiding the enterprise to him. To fill up the measure desired, he wanted nothing but a greater familiarity with the technical language of the natural sciences, and readiness in the astronomical observations necessary for the geography of his route. To acquire these he repaired immediately to Philadelphia, and placed himself under the tutorage of the distinguished professors of that place. #Quote by Stephen E. Ambrose
Qualifications quotes by Hazel Gaynor
#151. Now you look here. All your father ever dreamed of for you was to do something you loved in life. He didn't care about fancy qualifications or fancy clothes or cars, just that you were both happy and fulfilled. He was so excited about your dreams for a career. #Quote by Hazel Gaynor
Qualifications quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#152. Those who, in debate, appeal to their qualifications, argue from memory, not from understanding. #Quote by Leonardo Da Vinci
Qualifications quotes by David Irving
#153. I have no academic qualifications whatsoever. #Quote by David Irving
Qualifications quotes by John McCain
#154. I believe strongly that we should have nominees to the United States Supreme Court based on their qualifications rather than any litmus test. #Quote by John McCain
Qualifications quotes by Curtis Stone
#155. It is great to add some glamour to the food industry, like television shows have done for the food world and inspiring people to work in the industry. The flip side of that is unfortunately people think that after they get their qualifications, they get their invitation to compete on 'Top Chef.' #Quote by Curtis Stone
Qualifications quotes by Joseph Smith Jr.
#156. All men are, or ought to be free, possessing unalienable rights, and the high and noble qualifications of the laws of nature and of self-preservation, to think, and act, and say as they please, while they maintain a due respect to the rights and privileges of all other creatures, infringing upon none. #Quote by Joseph Smith Jr.
Qualifications quotes by Alphonso Jackson
#157. The Bush administration is the most diverse in history because the president fills jobs on the basis of a person's capabilities and qualifications, not on the color of his or her skin. #Quote by Alphonso Jackson
Qualifications quotes by Joseph Henry
#158. The general mental qualification necessary for scientific advancement is that which is usually denominated "common sense," though added to this, imagination, induction, and trained logic, either of common language or of mathematics, are important adjuncts. #Quote by Joseph Henry
Qualifications quotes by George McGovern
#159. It's possible to dazzle a crowd if you really work at it. But that is no qualification for leadership. Hitler was a master of crowds. #Quote by George McGovern
Qualifications quotes by John Jeremiah Bigsby
#160. The enjoyments of elegant life you early chose to abandon, preferring to wander for many successive years over the rudest portions of Europe and Asia-regions new to Science-in the hope, happily realized, of winning new truths.
By a rare union of favourable circumstances, and of personal qualifications equally rare, you have thus been enabled to become the recognized Interpreter and Historian (not without illustrious aid) of the Silurian Period. #Quote by John Jeremiah Bigsby
Qualifications quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#161. In a very real sense not one of us is qualified, but it seems that God continually chooses the most unqualified to do his work, to bear his glory. If we are qualified, we tend to think that we have done the job ourselves. If we are forced to accept our evident lack of qualification, then there's no danger that we will confuse God's work with our own, or God's glory with our own. #Quote by Madeleine L'Engle
Qualifications quotes by Russell Tovey
#162. I was so envious of everyone who went to Sylvia Young Theatre School. I wanted to go, but my dad flat-out refused. He thought I'd become some tapdancing freak without qualifications. And he was right in a way. I'm glad I didn't go. That might have changed. #Quote by Russell Tovey
Qualifications quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#163. A fearful instance of the ill consequences attending upon irascibility - alive, with the qualifications of the dead - dead, with the propensities of the living - an anomaly on the face of the earth - being very calm, yet breathless. #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Qualifications quotes by Tama J. Kieves
#164. There is no higher qualification than genuine inspiration. #Quote by Tama J. Kieves
Qualifications quotes by Karen Swallow Prior
#165. Rather than majoring in frivolities, women should be educated in useful subjects and 'be furnished with a stock of ideas, and principles, and qualifications, and habits, ready to be applied and appropriated ... ' - Hannah More #Quote by Karen Swallow Prior
Qualifications quotes by Austin Grossman
#166. 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
Qualifications quotes by J.K. Rowling
#167. So given a Time-Turner, I'd tell my 21 self that personal happiness lies in knowing that life is not a checklist of acquisition or archievement. Your qualifications, your CV, are not your life. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Qualifications quotes by Andrew Murray
#168. And here it is that the teaching is needed: If you would enter into full fellowship with Christ in His death,and know the full deliverance from self, humble yourself. This is your duty. Place yourself before God in your helplessness; consent to the fact that you are powerless to slay yourself; give yourself in patient and trustful surrender to God. Accept every humiliation; look upon every person who tries or troubles you as a means of grace to humble you. God will see such acceptance as proof that your whole heart desires it. It is the path of humility that leads to the full and perfect experience of our death with Christ. Beware of the mistake so many make. They have so many qualifications and limitations, so many thoughts and questions as to what true humility is to be and to do that they never unreservedly yield themselves to it. Humble yourself unto death. It is in the death to self that humility is perfected. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Qualifications quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#169. When we are telling people to depend on favor rather than qualification, we are actually preparing a ground for our country to collapse. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Qualifications quotes by Edward Wortley Montagu
#170. [T]here cannot be a more certain symptom of the approaching ruin of a State than when a firm adherence to party is fixed upon as the only test of merit, and all the qualifications requisite to a right discharge of every employment, are reduced to that single standard. #Quote by Edward Wortley Montagu
Qualifications quotes by Torquil Campbell
#171. I consider being a performer work. I come from a theater family; I've been an actor all my life. I started acting when I was a kid, and I've earned a living as an artist all my life. It's my job in the sense that it's everything I am, the only thing I know how to do. I literally do not have qualifications to do anything else on this planet. Seriously, it's scary. [But] I don't consider it a job [because] it's my religion - it's my faith, it's my family, it's everything to me. #Quote by Torquil Campbell
Qualifications quotes by Sue Townsend
#172. I asked Mr. Vann which O levels you need to write situation comedy for television. Mr. Vann said that you don't need qualifications at all, you just need to be a moron. #Quote by Sue Townsend
Qualifications quotes by Oscar Wilde
#173. Actors are so fortunate. They can choose whether they will appear in tragedy or in comedy, whether they will suffer or make merry, laugh or shed tears. But in real life it is different. Most men and women are forced to perform parts for which they have no qualifications. Our Guildensterns play Hamlet for us, and our Hamlets have to jest like Prince Hal. The world is a stage, but the play is badly cast. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Qualifications quotes by Jose Rizal
#174. When a people is denied light, home, freedom, justice, all the good things without which life is not possible, and which constitute man's patrimony, a person has the right to deal with the people who despoil him, like a thief who assaults us in the roadway. No qualifications, no exceptions. #Quote by Jose Rizal
Qualifications quotes by Tim Storey
#175. The qualifications for doing something world-changing for God are simply faith and willingness. Faith means trusting God to do the impossible as you step into an arena you know little to nothing about. Willingness is also based in faith and trust in God. Because He is a loving Father and has given you eternal life and peace, you are willing to put your life on the line for Him. Faith and willingness make room for bigger and better things in your life. They open the doors for God to surprise you with something new. #Quote by Tim Storey
Qualifications quotes by De Philosopher DJ Kyos
#176. When your experience, qualifications, and skills fail you. Let your hope, prayer, and faith carry you through. #Quote by De Philosopher DJ Kyos
Qualifications quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#177. I am wholly in favour of 'dull stodges'. A surprising large proportion prove 'educable': for which a primary qualification is the willingness to do work. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Qualifications quotes by Charles Hodge
#178. Zeal is the chief source, or one of the chief sources of spiritual power. God employs living souls to communicate life. In all ages, men of zeal have produced great results. This qualification, in the absence of others, can accomplish wonders. #Quote by Charles Hodge
Qualifications quotes by Abu Ammaar Yasir Qadhi
#179. It is not my methodology to engage too much with critics for many reasons:
- I honestly believe that my ego is not worthy of my having to defend it. There are far more important things in the ummah than me having to respond to critics.
- By and large, criticism is a part of human life and nature and we have ourselves to accomplish more than just responding to what people say about us.
- The best way to silence the speech of the critics it through the deafening noise of your own actions.
- Criticising is the job that requires zero qualifications. #Quote by Abu Ammaar Yasir Qadhi
Qualifications quotes by Charles V. De Vet
#180. Among peoples of such mixed natures, such diverse histories and philosophies, and different ways of life, most administrative problems are problems of a choice of whims, of changing and conflicting goals; not how to do what the people want done, but what they want done, and whether their next generation will want it enough to make work on it, now, worthwhile.'
'They sound insane,' Trobt said. 'Are your administrators supposed to serve the flickering goals of demented minds?'
'We must weigh values. What is considered good may be a matter of viewpoint, and may change from place to place, from generation to generation. In determining what people feel and what their unvoiced wants are, a talent of strategy, and an impatience with the illogic of others, are not qualifications. #Quote by Charles V. De Vet
Qualifications quotes by Stuart Wilde
#181. Of course, you don't have to have a degree to be rich. You just have to have ideas. Maybe having a degree sets you back, for it stuffs you into tick-tock [the daily grind of work], and perhaps that stifles your creative mind. But the fact is that many millionaires have few educational qualifications of any kind at all. However, they still have knowledge. The difference is, they have knowledge they can sell, and others have the "common knowledge" of tick-tock, which isn't worth as much, if anything at all. #Quote by Stuart Wilde
Qualifications quotes by Olaotan Fawehinmi
#182. When someone says "I Love You," it is imperative that you know if you are loved for "WHAT you are" or "WHO you are."
When the academic qualifications, professionals, positions, possessions, good look, fat bank accounts and all that has been acquired over the years are taken away, all that is left is "Who you are" - Your Personality (character, values, perceptions.)
"We are never truly loved, until we are loved for WHO and not WHAT we are #Quote by Olaotan Fawehinmi
Qualifications quotes by Jaggi Vasudev

Qualifications quotes by Pat Buchanan
#186. (H)er qualifications for the Supreme Court are non-existent. She is not a brilliant jurist, indeed, has never been a judge. She is not a scholar of the law. Researchers are hard-pressed to dig up an opinion. She has not had a brilliant career in politics, the academy, the corporate world or public forum. Were she not a friend of Bush, and female, she would never have even been considered. #Quote by Pat Buchanan
Qualifications quotes by Kate Canterbary
#187. I love you, too, and I'm not listening to any opening remarks or qualifications on the matter. You are my fire and ice, my calm and chaos, my everything, and I can't remember life before loving you. #Quote by Kate Canterbary
Qualifications quotes by Frithjof Schuon
#188. Nor is it in fact a purely human knowledge bound by the context and categories of the human mind. Rather, metaphysics, which some of his translators render as metaphysic in order to emphasize its non-multiple but unitary nature, is the science of Ultimate Reality, attainable through the intellect and not reason, of an essentially suprahuman character and including in its fullness the whole of man's being. It is a sacred science or scientia sacra, a wisdom which liberates and which requires not only certain mental capacities but also moral and spiritual qualifications. It #Quote by Frithjof Schuon
Qualifications quotes by Nicolas Guilhot
#189. Today, the qualifications required
for senior positions within NGOs reflect the evolution of those activists
who have also become managers: trained in law, business administration,
or finance, experienced, with a good capacity to "liaise" with political
circles or the business community, their profile often does not substantially
differ from those of corporate managers. #Quote by Nicolas Guilhot
Qualifications quotes by Edward Gibbon
#190. The zeal and virtue of Ali were never outstripped by any recent proselyte. He united the qualifications of a poet, a soldier, and a saint; his wisdom still breathes in a collection of moral and religious sayings; and every antagonist, in the combats of the tongue or of the sword, was subdued by his eloquence and valour. From the first hour of his mission to the last rites of his funeral, the apostle was never forsaken by a generous friend, whom he delighted to name his brother, his vicegerent, and the faithful Aaron of a second Moses. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Qualifications quotes by Robert Anton Wilson
#191. In almost all other professions a man must be able to observe carefully and report accurately what he has seen. Those qualifications are unnecessary for journalists, however, since their job is to write sensational stories that sell newspapers. #Quote by Robert Anton Wilson
Qualifications quotes by Thomas Harris

Qualifications quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#193. I have so much confidence in the good sense of man, and his qualifications for self-government, that I am never afraid of the issue where reason is left free to exert her force. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Qualifications quotes by Bernard Of Clairvaux
#194. It's not as if grace did one half of the work and free choice the other; each does the whole work, in its own peculiar contribution. Grace does the whole work, and so does free choice - with this one qualification: That whereas the whole is done in free choice, so is the whole done of grace. #Quote by Bernard Of Clairvaux
Qualifications quotes by Daniel Kahneman
#195. More generally, the financial benefits of self-employment are mediocre: given the same qualifications, people achieve higher average return by selling their skills to employers than by setting out on their own. The evidence suggests that optimism is widespread, stubborn, and costly. Psychologists have confirmed that most people genuinely believe they are superior to most others on most desirable traits - they are willing to bet small amounts of money on these beliefs in the laboratory. #Quote by Daniel Kahneman
Qualifications quotes by Noah Feldman
#196. For Mitt Romney, the complex question of anti-Mormon bias boils down to the practical matter of how he can make it go away. Facing a traditional American anti-Catholicism, John F. Kennedy gave a speech during the 1960 presidential campaign declaring his private religion irrelevant to his qualifications for public office. #Quote by Noah Feldman
Qualifications quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#197. Academic qualifications are important and so is financial education. They're both important and schools are forgetting one of them. #Quote by Robert Kiyosaki
Qualifications quotes by Hazrat Inayat Khan
#198. Man may have rank and position and a thousand qualifications, he may possess all the good of the earth, but if he lacks the art of personality he is poor indeed. It is in this art that man shows the nobility which belongs to the kingdom of God. #Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan
Qualifications quotes by J.K. Rowling

'Much more important is your enthusiasm, patience and a good sense of fun.' - 'You'd need more than a good sense of fun to liaise with my uncle', said Harry darkly .'Good sense of when to duck more like. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Qualifications quotes by Tom DeLay
