Quality quotes by Tom Noonan
#1. I think I probably have a creepy kind of scary quality. Otherwise, I wouldn't get jobs. But I also think it has a little bit to do with, you've done it a couple times, and then people see you that way. #Quote by Tom Noonan
Quality quotes by Mitchell Ivers
#2. We all know what good writing is: It's the novel we can't put down, the poem we never forget, the speech that changes the way we look at the world. It's the article that tells us when, where, and how, the essay that clarifies what was hazy before. Good writing is the memo that gets action, the letter that says what a phone call can't. It's the movie that makes us cry, the TV show that makes us laugh, the lyrics to the song we can't stop singing, the advertisement that makes us buy. Good writing can take form in prose or poetry, fiction or nonfiction. It can be formal or informal, literary or colloquial. The rules and tools for achieving each are different, but one difficult-to-define quality runs through them all: style. "Effectiveness of assertion" was George Bernard Shaw's definition of style. "Proper words in proper places" was Jonathan Swift's. You #Quote by Mitchell Ivers
Quality quotes by Francis Fukuyama
#3. Interest groups exercise influence way out of proportion to their place in society, distort both taxes and spending, and raise overall deficit levels through their ability to manipulate the budget in their favor. They also undermine the quality of public administration as a result of the multiple and often contradictory mandates they induce Congress to support. All of this has led to a crisis of representation, in which ordinary people feel their supposedly democratic government no longer truly reflects their interests but is under the control of a variety of shadowy elites. What is ironic and peculiar is that this crisis in representativeness has occurred in part because of reforms designed to make the system more democratic. #Quote by Francis Fukuyama
Quality quotes by Russell Simmons
#4. What holds most people back isn't the quality of their ideas, but their lack of faith in themselves. #Quote by Russell Simmons
Quality quotes by Oscar Wilde
#5. On the whole, the great success of marriage in the States is due partly to the fact that no American man is ever idle, and partly to the fact that no American wife is considered responsible for the quality of her husband's dinners. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Quality quotes by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
#6. If the firms that employ an increasing majority of the population are driven solely to satisfy the owner's greed at the expense of working conditions, of the stability of the community, and of the health of the environment, chances are that the quality of our lives will be worse than it is now. #Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Quality quotes by Robert Edwards
#7. Soon it will be a sin of parents to have a child that carries the heavy burden of genetic disease. We are entering a world where we have to consider the quality of our children. #Quote by Robert Edwards
Quality quotes by Gayle Rubin
#8. Youth Liberation has argued for some time that young people should have the right to have sex as well as not to have it, and with whom they choose. The statutory structure of the sex laws has been identified as oppressive and insulting to young people. A range of sexual activities are legally defined as molestation, regardless of the quality of the relationship or the amount of consent involved. #Quote by Gayle Rubin
Quality quotes by Ryuho Okawa
#9. You cannot increase the length of a day but you can improve the quality of it. #Quote by Ryuho Okawa
Quality quotes by Herb Brooks
#10. What is courage? Let me tell you what I think it is. An indefinable quality that makes a man put out that extra something, when it seems there is nothing else to give. I dare you to be better than you are. I dare you to be a thoroughbred. #Quote by Herb Brooks
Quality quotes by Aristotle.
#11. The quality of life is determined by its activities. #Quote by Aristotle.
Quality quotes by Nicole Williams
#12. My sense of teasing is completely lost on you.", Patrick said, hoisting himself back up. "It's a shame too. Most people tell me my sense of humor is my best quality, only outdone by my otherworldly good looks. #Quote by Nicole Williams
Quality quotes by Priyavrat Thareja
#13. My mother remains unmatched in quality, competent in business process, and is never contested for any faults #Quote by Priyavrat Thareja
Quality quotes by Lee Strobel
#14. The general consensus of both liberal and conservative scholars is that Luke is very accurate as a historian," I was told by Dr. John McRay, who earned his doctorate at the University of Chicago and wrote the respected textbook Archaeology and the New Testament. "He's erudite, he's eloquent, his Greek approaches classical quality, he writes as an educated man and archaeological discoveries are showing over and over again that Luke is accurate in what he has to say." In fact, there have been several instances in which scholars initially dismissed Luke as being inaccurate in a specific reference, only to have later discoveries #Quote by Lee Strobel
Quality quotes by Francis Quarles
#15. He that gives all, though but little, gives much; because God looks not to the quantity of the gift, but to the quality of the givers. #Quote by Francis Quarles
Quality quotes by Robin Hobb
#16. Many great ideas are not unique. They only become unique when the men who have the wherewithal actually to implement them come together. #Quote by Robin Hobb
Quality quotes by Michael Pollan
#17. Uncle Jeff insisted that I also take a tray of unseasoned barbecue, so I could see for myself that what's going on here at the Skylight Inn does not in any way, shape, or form depend for it's flavor or quality on "sauce." That is a word he pronounces with an upturned lip and a slight sneer, suggesting that the use of barbecue sauce was at best a culinary crutch deserving of pity and at worst a moral failing. #Quote by Michael Pollan
Quality quotes by Joseph Haydn
#18. Whenever I think of God I can only conceive of Him as a Being infinitely great and infinitely good. This last quality of the divine nature inspires me with such confidence and joy that I could have written even a miserere in tempo allegro. #Quote by Joseph Haydn
Quality quotes by Joshua Gaylord
#19. Of Dixie Doyle it is said that she could convince grown men of anything. While she is only a mediocre student and a wholly untalented tennis player, she possesses a quality of performed girlishness that turns sex into a ragged paradox for men beyond the age of thirty. She speaks with the hint of a babyish lisp, the pink end of her tongue frequently peeking out from between her teeth, but her eyes are implacable fields of gray that at any moment could conceal everything you imagine - or nothing at all. She might be an X-ray registering the skeleton of your soul, or, like Oscar Wilde's women, she might be a sphinx without a secret. #Quote by Joshua Gaylord
Quality quotes by Chris Van Hollen
#20. As we get closer to the end of this Congress, we should be addressing the urgent needs of the American people - the war in Iraq, affordable health care, a sensible energy policy, quality education for our children, retirement security, and a sound and fair fiscal policy. #Quote by Chris Van Hollen
Quality quotes by Marcel Proust
#21. It's odd how a person always arouses admiration for his moral qualities among the relatives of another with whom he has sexual relations. Physical love, so unjustifiably decried, makes everyone show, down to the least detail, all he has of goodness and self-sacrifice, so that he shines even in the eyes of those nearest to him. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Quality quotes by Rex E. Lee
#22. I have no criticism of the basic concept of irrefutable authority. Properly employed, it is the easiest, the surest, and the proper way to resolve conflicts. There is an omnipresent temptation, however, to rely on such authority regardless of its applicability; and I know of no better examples than the scriptures and the Constitution.

We find it easy to lapse into the expansive notion that the Constitution, like the gospel, embraces all truth and that it protects and guarantees all that is right, equitable, and just. From that grand premise it is only a short and comfortable leap to the proposition that the Constitution embraces my particular notion of what is right, equitable, and just. The Constitution lends itself to this kind of use because of its breadth.

Issues such as foreign aid, fluoridation of water, public versus private education, progressive income tax, to which political party I should belong and which candidate I should support; questions about economic development and environmental quality control; questions about the power of labor unions and the influence of big business in government--all these are issues of great importance. But these questions cannot and ought not to be resolved by simply resorting to irrefutable authority. Neither the Constitution nor the scriptures contain answers to these questions, and under the grand plan of eternal progress it is our responsibility to develop our own skills by working out our own answers throug #Quote by Rex E. Lee
Quality quotes by Olga Tokarczuk
#23. In a way, people like her, who wield a pen, can be dangerous. At once a suspicion of fakery springs to mind - that such a Person is not him or herself, but an eye that's constantly watching, and whatever it sees it changes into sentences; in the process it strips reality of its most essential quality - its inexpressibility. #Quote by Olga Tokarczuk
Quality quotes by Thomas Moore
#24. The point is not merely to succeed but to become a deeper, more complex, more mature person through your struggle. You allow the alchemy of your challenging journey to etch itself into your character, making you into a rich personality. Then whatever work you do will have the quality of your experience and your capacity to be ripened by it. Doing #Quote by Thomas Moore
Quality quotes by Cathy O'Neil
#25. Thanks in part to the resulting high score on the evaluation, he gets a longer sentence, locking him away for more years in a prison where he's surrounded by fellow criminals - which raises the likelihood that he'll return to prison. He is finally released into the same poor neighborhood, this time with a criminal record, which makes it that much harder to find a job. If he commits another crime, the recidivism model can claim another success. But in fact the model itself contributes to a toxic cycle and helps to sustain it. That's a signature quality of a WMD. #Quote by Cathy O'Neil
Quality quotes by Earl Nightingale
#26. How are you coming with your home library? Do you need some good ammunition on why it's so important to read? The last time I checked the statistics...I think they indicated that only four percent of the adults in this country have bought a book within the past year. That's dangerous. It's extremely important that we keep ourselves in the top five or six percent.
In one of the Monthly Letters from the Royal Bank of Canada it was pointed out that reading good books is not something to be indulged in as a luxury. It is a necessity for anyone who intends to give his life and work a touch of quality. The most real wealth is not what we put into our piggy banks but what we develop in our heads. Books instruct us without anger, threats and harsh discipline. They do not sneer at our ignorance or grumble at our mistakes. They ask only that we spend some time in the company of greatness so that we may absorb some of its attributes.

You do not read a book for the book's sake, but for your own.

You may read because in your high-pressure life, studded with problems and emergencies, you need periods of relief and yet recognize that peace of mind does not mean numbness of mind.

You may read because you never had an opportunity to go to college, and books give you a chance to get something you missed. You may read because your job is routine, and books give you a feeling of depth in life.

You may read because you did go to college.

#Quote by Earl Nightingale
Quality quotes by Robert Coppola Schwartzman
#27. That's the thing about music: It's forever. Hopefully, you captured a moment musically that has a timeless quality people will find relevant to their lives at any point. That's the whole idea about what I love about art and music. #Quote by Robert Coppola Schwartzman
Quality quotes by Seneca.
#28. Living is not good, but living well.
the wise man lives as well as he should, not as long as he could ...
he will always think of life in terms of quality; not quantity ...
dying early or late is of no relevance, dying well or ills ...
even if it is true that while there is life there is hope, life is not to be at any cost. #Quote by Seneca.
Quality quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#29. Indeed, it is a sign of marked political weakness in any
commonwealth if the people tend to be carried away by mere oratory, if they
tend to value words in and for themselves, as divorced from the deeds for which
they are supposed to stand. The phrase-maker, the phrase-monger, the ready
talker, however great his power, whose speech does not make for courage,
sobriety, and right understanding, is simply a noxious element in the body
politic, and it speaks ill for the public if he has influence over them. To admire
the gift of oratory without regard to the moral quality behind the gift is to do
wrong to the republic. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Quality quotes by Lucia Berlin
#30. Mrs. Bevins smiled. "Okay. I'll cop. I think every teacher sees this sometimes. It's not simply intelligence or talent. It's a nobility of spirit. A quality which could make him great at whatever he wanted to do." We #Quote by Lucia Berlin
Quality quotes by Hal Elrod
#31. Research has shown that we virtually become like the average of the five people we spend the most time with. Who you spend your time with may be the single most determining factor in the person you become and in your quality of life. If you are surrounded with lazy, weak-minded, excuse-making people, you'll inevitably become like them. Spend time with positive, successful achievers and inevitably their attitudes and successful habits will reflect on you. You'll become more and more like them. #Quote by Hal Elrod
Quality quotes by Mario Monti
#32. I am certain that most Germans have instinctive liking for Italy, just as Italians admire Germans for their many qualities. #Quote by Mario Monti
Quality quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#33. Konstantin Levin regarded his brother as a man of immense intellect and culture, as generous in the highest sense of the word, and possessed of a special faculty for working for the public good. But in the depths of his heart, the older he became, and the more intimately he knew his brother, the more and more frequently the thought struck him that this faculty of working for the public good, of which he felt himself utterly devoid, was possibly not so much a quality as a lack of something - not a lack of good, honest, noble desires and tastes, but a lack of vital force, of what is called heart, of that impulse which drives a man to choose someone out of the innumerable paths of life, and to care only for that one. The better he knew his brother, the more he noticed that Sergey Ivanovitch, and many other people who worked for the public welfare, were not led by an impulse of the heart to care for the public good, but reasoned from intellectual considerations that it was a right thing to take interest in public affairs, and consequently took interest in them. Levin was confirmed in this generalization by observing that his brother did not take questions affecting the public welfare or the question of the immortality of the soul a bit more to heart than he did chess problems, or the ingenious construction of a new machine. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Quality quotes by Melody Beattie
#34. Striving for excellence is a positive quality. Striving for perfection is self-defeating. #Quote by Melody Beattie
Quality quotes by Kyle Chandler
#35. Sometimes a scene may be about one thing, and it may end up still being about that, but the emotionality of it comes from somewhere else, or the humor of it comes from somewhere else, and it gives it that real-life quality. #Quote by Kyle Chandler
Quality quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#36. Sleep takes off the costume of circumstance, arms us with terrible freedom, so that every will rushes to a deed. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Quality quotes by Rutger Bregman
#37. Whether it's the growth of the economy, audience shares, publications – slowly but surely, quality is being replaced by quantity. ... And driving it all is a force sometimes called "liberalism," an ideology that has been all but hollowed out. ... Freedom may be our highest ideal, but ours has become an empty freedom. Our fear of moralizing in any form has made morality a taboo in the public debate. The public arena should be "neutral," after all – yet never before has it been so paternalistic. On every street corner we're baited to booze, binge, borrow, buy, toil, stress, and swindle. Whatever we may tell ourselves about freedom of speech, our values are suspiciously close to those touted by precisely the companies that can pay for prime-time advertising. #Quote by Rutger Bregman
Quality quotes by Swami Dhyan Giten
#38. The inner being is not only the meditative quality within, the inner silence and emptiness, it is the door to the whole. #Quote by Swami Dhyan Giten
Quality quotes by Pierce Brown
#39. Eo said people would always look to me. She believed I had some quality, some essence that gave hope. I rarely feel it in myself. #Quote by Pierce Brown
Quality quotes by Virginia Woolf
#40. In illness words seem to possess a mystic quality. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Quality quotes by Queen Rania Of Jordan
#41. In education, technology can be a life-changer, a game changer, for kids who are both in school and out of school. Technology can bring textbooks to life. The Internet can connect students to their peers in other parts of the world. It can bridge the quality gaps. #Quote by Queen Rania Of Jordan
Quality quotes by Bee Wilson
#42. The gap in quality between the diet of the poorest and that of the richest is wide and widening. The poorest families in America may not look hungry in the way that Victorian orphans looked hungry, but they eat fewer dark green vegetables, fewer whole grains, and fewer nuts. #Quote by Bee Wilson
Quality quotes by Patrick O'Brian
#43. Yet,'said Maturin, pursuing his own thought, 'there is a quality in dogs, I must confess, rarely to be seen elsewhere and that is affection: I do not mean the violent possessive protective love for their owner but rather that mild, steady attachment to their friends that we see quite often in the best sort of dog. And when you consider the rarity of plain disinterested affection among our own kind, once we are adult, alas - when you consider how immensely it enhances daily life and how it enriches a man's past and future, so that he can look backward and forward with complacency - why, it is a pleasure to find it in brute creation. #Quote by Patrick O'Brian
Quality quotes by Jaggi Vasudev
#44. In terms of the real quality of a human being, only when suffering comes, when pain comes, does a man stand up as a human being. You can see great human beings surface only when the society is really suffering. When India was under the oppression of British rulers, how many wonderful people stood up? Where are they now? They have just fallen back into their comforts, that's all. All those Ghandis, Patels, Tilaks are still there, but they're dormant. When pain came, they all became alive. They left everything behind and stood up as giants. Where are they now? This is the human misfortune that still there's not enough intelligence in the world that human beings will rise to their peaks when everything is well. They wait for calamities. #Quote by Jaggi Vasudev
Quality quotes by Jonathan Lethem
#45. 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
Quality quotes by Arulselvar Thomas - Briskinfosec

Quality quotes by Leonard Boswell
#47. As the 29th state to join the United States of America, it is our turn to show the nation what represents Iowa. Our commitment to quality education, hard work, and small-town values are all represented in the Iowa quarter. #Quote by Leonard Boswell
Quality quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#48. Whereas the angel "came" to Mary (Lk 1:28), he merely appears to Joseph in a dream - admittedly a dream that is real and reveals what is real. Once again this shows us an essential quality of the figure of Saint Joseph: his capacity to perceive the divine and his ability to discern. Only a man who is inwardly watchful for the divine, only someone with a real sensitivity for God and his ways, can receive God's message in this way. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Quality quotes by Comte De Lautreamont
#49. Taste is the fundamental quality which sums up all the other qualities. It is the nec plus ultra of the intelligence. Through this alone is genius the supreme health and balance of all the faculties. #Quote by Comte De Lautreamont
Quality quotes by Elizabeth Gaskell
#50. The prospect of soon losing her companion seemed to give force to every sweet quality and charm which Edith possessed. #Quote by Elizabeth Gaskell
Quality quotes by Paula Hawkins
#51. Cathy's a nice person, in a forceful sort of way. She makes you notice her kindness. Her niceness is writ large, it is her defining quality and she needs it acknowledged. #Quote by Paula Hawkins
Quality quotes by Clay Shirky
#52. The great tension in media has always been that freedom and quality are conflicting goals. #Quote by Clay Shirky
Quality quotes by Luc De Clapiers
#53. If virtue were its own reward, it would no longer be a human quality, but supernatural. #Quote by Luc De Clapiers
Quality quotes by Brian Tracy
#54. So, always start with a product, always start with a customer, always start with a service and how this product or service will dramatically improve the quality of the life or the work of the customer. #Quote by Brian Tracy
Quality quotes by Don Kardong
#55. The Kenyans beat up on the American runners in every road race every weekend of the year, but we're way ahead of them in the number and quality of our Elvis impersonators. We get our X-Men and gorillas. #Quote by Don Kardong
Quality quotes by Mark Blyth
#56. The "German problem" after 1970 became how to keep up with the Germans in terms of efficiency and productivity. One way, as above, was to serially devalue, but that was beginning to hurt. The other way was to tie your currency to the deutsche mark and thereby make your price and inflation rate the same as the Germans, which it turned out would also hurt, but in a different way.

The problem with keeping up with the Germans is that German industrial exports have the lowest price elasticities in the world. In plain English, Germany makes really great stuff that everyone wants and will pay more for in comparison to all the alternatives. So when you tie your currency to the deutsche mark, you are making a one-way bet that your industry can be as competitive as the Germans in terms of quality and price. That would be difficult enough if the deutsche mark hadn't been undervalued for most of the postwar period and both German labor costs and inflation rates were lower than average, but unfortunately for everyone else, they were. That gave the German economy the advantage in producing less-than-great stuff too, thereby undercutting competitors in products lower down, as well as higher up the value-added chain. Add to this contemporary German wages, which have seen real declines over the 2000s, and you have an economy that is extremely hard to keep up with. On the other side of this one-way bet were the financial markets. They looked at less dynamic economies, such as the Un #Quote by Mark Blyth

Quality quotes by Gregory Rabassa
#58. A translation can never equal the original; it can approach it, and its quality can only be judged as to accuracy by how close it gets. #Quote by Gregory Rabassa
Quality quotes by David Harvey
#59. Isaac Newton was being called on to defend to quality of moneys as master of the Royal Mint. He had to face the problem of the debasement of the currency through the practice of shaving some of the silver off silver coins to make more coins (an easy way to make money, when you think about it). Convicted coin-clippers were publicly hung at Tyburn - offences against God were to be forgiven, but offences against capital and mammon deserved capital punishment! #Quote by David Harvey
Quality quotes by Gus Van Sant
#60. I think that in some cases, I've made films that have a sentimental quality, at least as part of the film. #Quote by Gus Van Sant
Quality quotes by Rajneesh
#61. Remember one very fundamental thing about life: Any experience that has not been lived will hang around you, will persist: "Finish me! Live me! Complete me!" There is an intrinsic quality in every experience that it tends and wants to be finished, completed. Once completed, it evaporates; incomplete, it persists, it tortures you, it haunts you, it attracts your attention. It says, "What are you going to do about me? I am still incomplete - fulfill me!" #Quote by Rajneesh
Quality quotes by Pseudo-Dionysius The Areopagite
#62. WE say then- that the Cause of all, which is above all, is neither without being, nor without life----nor with- out reason, nor without mind, nor is a body----nor has shape----nor form----nor quality, or quantity, or bulk----nor is in a place----nor is seen----nor has sensible contact----nor perceives, nor is perceived, by the senses----nor has disorder and confusion, as being vexed by earthly passions,----nor is powerless, as being subject to casualties of sense,----nor is in need of light;----neither is It, nor has It, change, or decay, or division, or deprivation, or flux,----or any other of the objects of sense. #Quote by Pseudo-Dionysius The Areopagite

#63. Twice a week I'll run fast quality workouts either on the track or road. #Quote by Jonathan Brown
Quality quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#64. Generosity has such power because it is characterized by the inner quality of letting go or relinquishing. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Quality quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#65. Any action that arises out of stress is of low quality, and it contributes to human suffering. You are making yourself and others suffer. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Quality quotes by Jack Welch
#66. The value decade is upon us. If you can't sell a top-quality product at the world's lowest price, you're going to be out of the game. #Quote by Jack Welch
Quality quotes by Francis Frangipane
#67. The very quality of your life, whether you love it or hate it, is based upon how thankful you are toward God. It is one's attitude that determines whether life unfolds into a place of blessedness or wretchedness. Indeed, looking at the same rose bush, some people complain that the roses have thorns while others rejoice that some thorns come with roses. It all depends on your perspective.

This is the only life you will have before you enter eternity. If you want to find joy, you must first find thankfulness. Indeed, the one who is thankful for even a little enjoys much. But the unappreciative soul is always miserable, always complaining. He lives outside the shelter of the Most High God.

Perhaps the worst enemy we have is not the devil but our own tongue. James tells us, "The tongue is set among our members as that which . . . sets on fire the course of our life" (James 3:6). He goes on to say this fire is ignited by hell. Consider: with our own words we can enter the spirit of heaven or the agonies of hell!

It is hell with its punishments, torments and misery that controls the life of the grumbler and complainer! Paul expands this thought in 1 Corinthians 10:10, where he reminds us of the Jews who "grumble[d] . . . and were destroyed by the destroyer." The fact is, every time we open up to grumbling and complaining, the quality of our life is reduced proportionally -- a destroyer is bringing our life to ruin!

People often ask me, #Quote by Francis Frangipane
Quality quotes by John O'Donohue
#68. There is a kindness in beauty which can inform and bless a lesser force adjacent to it. It has been shown, for instance, that when there are two harps tuned to the same frequency in a room, one a large harp and the other smaller, if a chord is struck in the bigger harp it fills and infuses the little harp with the grandeur and beauty of its resonance and brings it into tuneful harmony. Then, the little harp sounds out its own tune in its own voice. This is one of the unnoticed ways in which a child learns to become herself. Perhaps the most powerful way parents rear children is through the quality of their presence and the atmosphere that pertains in the in-between times of each day. Unconsciously, the child absorbs this and hopefully parents send out enough tuneful spirit for the child to come into harmony with her own voice. #Quote by John O'Donohue
Quality quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#69. People exercise the freedom to present themselves from a vast array of precepts. The modern human mind can engage in reflective thought and selectively determine how to organize the elements of perception. We can consciously elect to depart from stereotypical behavior and transcend the heretofore-established biological behavioral preferences. People can elect to hold prejudices or not, can make rational or irrational decisions to engage in war or not, and can take deliberate steps to arrest destruction of the ecosystem or not. Holding ourselves in check by placing a brake upon the human propensity to strike out in instinctual behavior is a distinct human quality. Restraint from instant gratification of strong impulses represents a unique human behavior trait. By intentionally refraining from committing an instinctual action, humankind asserts its sovereignty from its biological constitution. Unbound from the limitations of its biological nature, a person can employ the mind to devise alternative behavioral choices and the results of numerous behavioral choices culminate to provide a person with a sophisticated definition of the self. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Quality quotes by Matt Mullenweg
#70. You don't need to know someone personally to be able to discern whether their work is high quality or not. The idea of a meritocracy is that it's what they do, not who they are. #Quote by Matt Mullenweg
Quality quotes by Pema Chodron
#71. In meditation we can notice how emotions and moods are connected with having lost or gained something, having been praised or blamed, and so forth. We can notice how what begins as a simple thought, a simple quality of energy, quickly blossoms into full-blown pleasure and pain. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Quality quotes by Charles Lindbergh
#72. A certain amount of danger is essential to the quality of life. #Quote by Charles Lindbergh
Quality quotes by Paul Ryan
#73. We must solve the problem in health care by curbing out-of-control costs that erode paychecks for working families and push quality coverage out of reach for millions of Americans. #Quote by Paul Ryan
Quality quotes by Joyce Meyer
#74. It is amazing the quality of human beings that are in this world if we can just get past people not dressing the way we want them to dress. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Quality quotes by Sue Kelly
#75. As a former professional patient advocate, I believe prescription drugs are an essential part of high-quality medical treatment, and I supported enactment of the Medicare Prescription Drug and Modernization Act. #Quote by Sue Kelly
Quality quotes by Serge Lang
#76. To an extent that undermines classical standards of science, some purported scientific results concerning 'HIV' and 'AIDS' have been handled by press releases, by disinformation, by low-quality studies, and by some suppression of information, manipulating the media and people at large. When the official scientific press does not report correctly, or obstructs views dissenting from those of the scientific establishment, it loses credibility and leaves no alternative but to find information elsewhere. #Quote by Serge Lang
Quality quotes by Peter Singer
#77. When we eat plants, food takes on a different quality. We take from the earth food that is ready for us and does not fight against us as we take it. #Quote by Peter Singer
Quality quotes by Margaret Mitchell
#78. She was less frightened also because life had taken on the quality of a dream, a dream too terrible to be real. It wasn't possible that she, Scarlett O'Hara, should be in such a predicament, with the danger of death about her every hour, every minute. It wasn't possible that the quiet tenor of life could have changed so completely in so short a time. #Quote by Margaret Mitchell
Quality quotes by Harrison Owen
#79. it is not how many people come, or even who comes (in the sense of status or position) that counts, rather it is the quality of the interaction and conversation that make the difference. #Quote by Harrison Owen
Quality quotes by Andy Goldsworthy
#80. The hardened mass of liquid stones had much stronger qualities than those which had simply torn. The skin remained a recognisable part of the molten stone. #Quote by Andy Goldsworthy
Quality quotes by James Bobin
#81. It doesn't matter if you're good at anything, just try your best. Then there's the idea that individually they're flawed but together they can do amazing things. I think that's a very nice message and it's not something you hit people over the head with. It just comes with The Muppets; it's what they're about. It's that kind of innocent try, try, try quality. And it also makes them underdogs. You can't help but support the underdog. #Quote by James Bobin
Quality quotes by Carl Hansen
#82. Courage is the first of human qualities, because it is the quality that guarantees all the others.
- Winston Churchill #Quote by Carl Hansen
Quality quotes by Bernie Mac
#83. I want people to say at the end of my day, you know, like I used to say about Sidney Poitier and James Cagney and Joan Crawford and Red Skelton and those guys and Bill Cosby. They did quality and substance. You always remember them. #Quote by Bernie Mac
Quality quotes by Plato
#84. And the quality of good judgement is clearly a form of knowledge and skill, as it is because of knowledge and not because of ignorance that we judge well. #Quote by Plato
Quality quotes by Dick Cheney
#85. 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
Quality quotes by Yanni
#86. I believe that having an open mind is one of the most important qualities we can possess. Once our minds close, we stop evolving. #Quote by Yanni
Quality quotes by Iain H. Murray
#87. From the experience of these years Dr. Lloyd-Jones was immovably confirmed in a truth which he had first seen in the New Testament. It was that evangelism is pre-eminently dependent upon the quality of the Christian life which is known and enjoyed in the church. #Quote by Iain H. Murray
Quality quotes by Sebastian Thrun
#88. Access to high-quality education is way too limited. The United States has the world's most admirable higher education system, and yet it is very restrictive. It's so hard to get into. I never got into it as a student. #Quote by Sebastian Thrun
Quality quotes by Seneca.
#89. What is the state of things, then? It is this: I do not regard a man as poor, if the little which remains is enough for him. I advise you, however, to keep what is really yours; and you cannot begin too early. For, as our ancestors believed, it is too late to spare when you reach the dregs of the cask.[1] Of that which remains at the bottom, the amount is slight, and the quality is vile. Farewell. #Quote by Seneca.
Quality quotes by Seth Godin
#90. Excellence isn't about meeting the spec, it's about setting the spec. It defines what the consumer sees as quality right this minute, and tomorrow, if you're good, you'll reset that expectation again #Quote by Seth Godin
Quality quotes by Alexander Koch
#91. Facebook and pictures on the Internet have created such a different way of dating. It's not necessarily good because an obsessive quality can develop in people. #Quote by Alexander Koch
Quality quotes by Connie Kerbs
#92. Both the giving and receiving of love is encoded within our deepest physiology and is all-important. This must not be taken for granted. Its expressions in our life – or lack and denial thereof – contribute substantially to our ultimate personal success, satisfaction,
and quality of life. #Quote by Connie Kerbs
Quality quotes by Frederick Lenz
#93. Humility is my best friend, I've always valued it above all other spiritual qualities. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Quality quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#94. ABOMINABLE, adj. The quality of another's opinions. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Quality quotes by Oliver Sacks
#95. Patients were real, often passionate individuals with real problems - and sometimes choices - of an often agonizing sort. It was not just a question of diagnosis and treatment; much graver questions could present themselves - questions about the quality of life and whether life was even worth living in some circumstances. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Quality quotes by Pope John Paul II
#96. Euthanasia and assisted suicide are never acceptable acts of mercy. They always gravely exploit the suffering and desperate, extinguishing life in the name of the 'quality of life' itself. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Quality quotes by Oscar Isaac
#97. How do you play 'righteous'? Do you just kind of stand up straighter? What does that mean as an actor? You don't really play a quality. #Quote by Oscar Isaac
Quality quotes by Helena Bonham Carter
#98. Fairytales have always got to have that scary quality, as long as you make them laugh. #Quote by Helena Bonham Carter
Quality quotes by Rick Warren
#99. Vulnerability is an endearing quality; we are naturally drawn to humble people. #Quote by Rick Warren
Quality quotes by Samuel Johnson
#100. Let us take a patriot, where we can meet him; and, that we may not flatter ourselves by false appearances, distinguish those marks which are certain, from those which may deceive; for a man may have the external appearance of a patriot, without the constituent qualities; as false coins have often lustre, though they want weight. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Quality quotes by Dan Slater
#101. In 2011, Mark Brooks, a consultant to online-dating companies, published the results of an industry survey titled "How Has Internet Dating Changed Society?" The survey responses, from 39 executives, produced the following conclusions:

"Internet dating has made people more disposable."

"Internet dating may be partly responsible for a rise in the divorce rates."

"Low quality, unhappy and unsatisfying marriages are being destroyed as people drift to Internet dating sites."

"The market is hugely more efficient … People expect to - and this will be increasingly the case over time - access people anywhere, anytime, based on complex search requests … Such a feeling of access affects our pursuit of love … the whole world (versus, say, the city we live in) will, increasingly, feel like the market for our partner(s). Our pickiness will probably increase."

"Above all, Internet dating has helped people of all ages realize that there's no need to settle for a mediocre relationship."

From "A Million First Dates
How online romance is threatening monogamy" in January/February 2013 #Quote by Dan Slater
Quality quotes by Shawn Levy
#102. I don't know if it's that my own childhood felt brief, or I grew up too fast, or I was pushing myself too much at a young age, but I do feel like I am clinging to a certain childlike quality in myself, as a result of a childhood that was sometimes complicated. #Quote by Shawn Levy
Quality quotes by Carl Rogers
#103. An empathic way of being can be learned from empathic persons. Perhaps the most important statement of all is that the ability to be accurately empathic is something which can be developed by training. Therapists, parents and teachers can be helped to become empathic. This is especially likely to occur if their teachers and supervisors are themselves individuals of sensitive understanding. It is most encouraging to know that this subtle, elusive quality, of utmost importance in therapy, is not something one is "born with", but can be learned, and learned most rapidly in an empathic climate. #Quote by Carl Rogers
Quality quotes by T.V. Rao
#104. Defining Happiness in the changing world is difficult, even you find very poor people are happy with few things. Real success comes from the quality of our relationships and the emotions that we experience each day. Many unhappy feelings will
disappear if we think Have I done something today that improved the world? Have I accomplished something worthwhile?Have I helped someone less fortunate? Every Unhappy moment reduces enjoying the present moment. always think Have I felt grateful for the incredible gift of being alive? Happiness lies only with us keeping the
moments of life Happy is art, We cannot catch happiness but only follow it let us try to perfect it Dr.T.V.Rao MD #Quote by T.V. Rao
Quality quotes by Ellen F. Davis
#105. That the Old Testament represents God chiefly as angry Judge and vicious Warrior is a false stereotype. While these images are not absent, they are more than balanced by striking portrayals of God as Lover or Husband, infatuated with Israel beyond all reason or deserving. God is not too proud to grieve terribly over Israel's unfaithfulness, nor to be giddy over her return home. ... [This covenant's] primary quality is love at the highest pitch of intensity. (pg. 77) #Quote by Ellen F. Davis
Quality quotes by Alexander Ostrovsky
#106. To pronounce something clever and honest is not such a big deal, lots of them have been said and written. For a statement of truth to be effective and for it to make people wiser, it has to be filtered through the soul of a highest quality, the soul of an artist. #Quote by Alexander Ostrovsky
Quality quotes by John Dewey
#107. It is not truly realistic or scientific to take short views, to sacrifice the future to immediate pressure, to ignore facts and forces that are disagreeable and to magnify the enduring quality of whatever falls in with immediate desire. It is false that the evils of the situation arise from absence of ideals; they spring from wrong ideals. #Quote by John Dewey
Quality quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#108. If we harm someone else, we're inevitably also hurting ourselves. Some quality of sensitivity and awareness has to shut down for us to be able to objectify someone else, to deny them as a living, feeling being - someone who wants to be happy, just as we do. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Quality quotes by Neelie Kroes

Quality quotes by Peter Beardsley
#110. I tell my kids in the Academy at Newcastle to watch Henry. He plays with such a swagger, not an arrogance, and that is a great quality. He always looks so comfortable. You talk about cars going from 0 to 60 in a matter of seconds, and he is like that. He just explodes. I could sit there for hours and watch him. #Quote by Peter Beardsley
Quality quotes by Soledad O'Brien
#111. I look forward to beginning a relationship with Al Jazeera America, which has made a commitment to producing quality programming and pursuing underreported stories. #Quote by Soledad O'Brien
Quality quotes by Ahmed Zewail
#112. Higher education should be based on quality, not quantity; receive merit-based funding; and be free of unnecessary bureaucracy. Not the least of the benefits of educational reform is to foster the pride of achievement at national and international levels. #Quote by Ahmed Zewail
Quality quotes by Rajneesh
#113. Be passive. In your passivity, God comes. Be feminine. In your femininity, God comes. Have you not watched it? Buddha looks very feminine, Krishna looks very feminine. Why? - because it is simply a metaphor. They have been depicted as feminine, graceful, to show that that is their inner quality - receptivity. When you are doing something you are being aggressive. When you are not doing anything you are non-aggressive. And God cannot be conquered; you can only allow him to conquer you. #Quote by Rajneesh
Quality quotes by Shepard Fairey
#114. MY INSPIRATION FOR THIS LIMITED EDITION DESIGN WAS BASED ON THE LEGACY OF HENNESSY AS A BRAND. TO ME, HENNESSY HAS ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT QUALITY, AUTHENTICITY, TRADITION, AND ELEGANCE. #Quote by Shepard Fairey
Quality quotes by Peter Diamandis
#115. As I've conducted my interviews with crowdsourcing entrepreneurs and experts, it's constantly hit me that your ability to do something big and bold is really a function of the size and quality of your crowd. #Quote by Peter Diamandis
Quality quotes by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
#116. Apart from Christ, we cannot stand against our own hearts. The verses above presume that we will struggle with sin, but they warn us not to declare any sin a "sanctifiable" character quality, even if through it we may learn valuable lessons about life. Learning lessons is not God's first priority for his children. Transformed character is. I learned here that God may, in his providence, bring good from my past, but the good that comes is not because of the sin, but in spite of it. It is very tempting to see "good" in those things that tempt us to sin or lead us to sin because then we don't seem nearly as corrupt as Original Sin renders us. According to God, sinful temptations are inclinations to do something or become something that cost Jesus his life for my sake. We are not to try to ransom it on our own terms. Suggesting that our sin is good or produces good is tantamount to calling cancer good health. #Quote by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
Quality quotes by Dale Carnegie
#117. Flaming enthusiasm, backed by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success. #Quote by Dale Carnegie
Quality quotes by Kate Mulgrew
#118. They loved her because she was an independent spirit, unafraid to speak her mind, passionate, impetuous, and brave. Seldom lauded for her beauty, Mary Ryan had something else to offer, something women could grab ahold of and understand. She had a powerful sense of self, and this proved more magnetic and more relatable than any other single quality. #Quote by Kate Mulgrew
Quality quotes by Daniel Craig
#119. There is, come to think of it, a kind of Judi Dench quality to McCain. #Quote by Daniel Craig
Quality quotes by Josephine Dodge Daskam Bacon
#120. We all have the defects of our qualities ... #Quote by Josephine Dodge Daskam Bacon
Quality quotes by Andrew Carnegie
#121. I have never known a concern to make a decided success that did not do good, honest work, and even in these days of fiercest competition, when everything would seem to be a matter of price, there lies still at the root of great business success the very much more important factor of quality. The effect of attention to quality, upon every man in the service, from the president of the concern down to the humblest laborer, cannot be overestimated. #Quote by Andrew Carnegie
Quality quotes by Jesse Jackson
#122. While I've spent a lot of quality time with my children, perhaps it's not been enough. #Quote by Jesse Jackson
Quality quotes by Ernst Junger
#123. From this it may be seen at once what is the most important quality a nation must possess when its position in the world compels it to reckon with the waging of great wars. This quality is more than ever, in peace as well as in war, the proof of its fitness to survive. It is the capacity for the speedy development of a large programme. #Quote by Ernst Junger
Quality quotes by Stan Albeck
#124. As a player, remember that the bench is not a prison, but an extension of the first group. Concentrate on the quality of your play when you do get into the game. If you play 20 minutes, play the best 20 you can possibly play. #Quote by Stan Albeck
Quality quotes by Howard W. Hunter
#125. To discipline ourselves through fasting brings us in tune with God, and fast day provides an occasion to set aside the temporal so that we might enjoy the higher qualities of the spiritual. As we fast on that day we learn and better understand the needs of those who are less fortunate. #Quote by Howard W. Hunter
Quality quotes by Jeffrey D. Sachs
#126. it is the provision of public services, notably the universal access to affordable day care, even more than income support to families, that is key to the elimination of poverty among families with children. Sweden's public services, of uniformly high quality, ensure a decent start for all children. Sweden #Quote by Jeffrey D. Sachs
Quality quotes by Satoru Iwata
#127. Consumers will purchase high quality products even if they are expensive, or in other words, even if there are slightly reasonable discount offers, consumers will not purchase products unless they truly understand and are satisfied with the quality. Also, product appeal must be properly communicated to consumers, but advertisements that are pushed on consumers are gradually losing their effect, and we have to take the approach that encourages consumers to retrieve information at their own will. #Quote by Satoru Iwata
Quality quotes by Mark R. Lile
#128. I believe a person who strives to keep a great attitude is refusing a life of mediocrity. God isn't calling you to a life of mediocrity. Think of what the word mediocre means. The dictionary defines mediocre as "of only moderate quality; not very good." Synonyms for the word mediocre are words such as average, undistinguished, unexceptional, lackluster, and forgettable. Do these words describe how you want your life to be remembered? I seriously doubt they do. You want your life to be remembered as inspiring and exceptional. If you seek God's direction and plan for your life, he will lead and empower you to reach your full potential and inspire others. #Quote by Mark R. Lile
Quality quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#129. The quality of a miracle is mysterious, but its manner is simple. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Quality quotes by Charles Galton Darwin
#130. When homo sapiens is changing, it will not be by the whole race gaining simultaneously whatever qualities better fit it for survival, but rather by certain types of mankind proving superior to the rest in survival value, so that they contribute a larger proportion to the later generations, and in so doing drag the average qualities of humanity in the same direction. #Quote by Charles Galton Darwin
Quality quotes by Rumi
#131. Being desirable means being comfortable with your own ambiguity. The most ambiguous reality is that we are flesh and spirit at the same time. Within everyone there is light and shadow, good and evil, love and hate. In order to be truthful, you must embrace your total being. A person who exhibits both positive and negative qualities, strengths and weaknesses is not flawed, but complete. #Quote by Rumi
Quality quotes by Yuto Tsukuda
#132. I see prawns, mussels... a whole host of seafood!"
"Don't forget the perfectly ripe tomatoes and the bottle of olive oil.
Aah, I get it. It seems he is making Acqua Pazza."
ACQUA PAZZA
A local delicacy in Southern Italy...
... Acqua Pazza is a simple yet gourmet dish of poached white fish mixed with a variety of other ingredients.
Traditional ingredients include olive oil, tomatoes and shellfish.
"Compared to many other poached or simmered dishes, it uses relatively few seasonings. Because it's so uncomplicated, the quality of the ingredients themselves comes to the forefront. It's the perfect dish to show off his superhuman eye for selecting fish."
"Not that Acqua Pazza itself is a poor choice...
... but the centerpiece of the dish must still be the pike!
Yet the ingredients he's chosen have distinct flavors that demand attention. Won't simmering them all together drown out the flavor of the fish?"
"True! It would be a waste of an in-season pike to-
Wait..."
"Exactly.
Precisely because it is in season, the pike's flavor won't be drowned out.
Instead, it has the potential to become the base of the entire dish!
It's a recipe only someone with great confidence in their eye for fish could have chosen for this competition. #Quote by Yuto Tsukuda
Quality quotes by John Dos Passos
#133. We're headed for collapse, if you want my opinion, Missy. I can see it in the fallin' off of the quality of vagrants. There was atime you could find real good company in almost any jungle you'd pick, men who could talk, men who'd read a book now and then; and now, what do you find, a lot of dirty little guttersnipes no decent tramp would want to associate with.
Well, it's been that way all through history. #Quote by John Dos Passos
Quality quotes by Steve Robson
#134. Its build quality is superb, given that I am a novice to it 6 months ago and being heavy handed it stands up very well. I have trouble thinking of something I enjoy more than setting off and popping the kite and screaming downwind! #Quote by Steve Robson
Quality quotes by Vince Lombardi
#135. The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor. #Quote by Vince Lombardi
Quality quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#136. As I looked at her there among the pumpkins I was overcome with the color and the intesity of my life. In these moments we are driven to try and hoard happiness by taking photographs, but I know better. The improtant thing was what the colors stood for, the taste of hard apples and the existence of Lena and the exact quality of the sun on the last warm day in October. A photograph would have flattened the scene into a happy moment, whereas what I felt was rapture. The fleeting certainty that I deserved this space I'd been taking up on this earth, and all the air I had breathed. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Quality quotes by Stephanie Clifford
#137. I just wanted to be open and honest, and being open and honest is a practice rather than a quality. #Quote by Stephanie Clifford
Quality quotes by Samuel Johnson
#138. Every man is prompted by the love of himself to imagine that he possesses some qualities superior, either in kind or degree, to those which he sees allotted to the rest of the world. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Quality quotes by Ferdinand Foch
#139. The fundamental qualities for good execution of a plan is first; intelligence; then discernment and judgment, which enable one to recognize the best method as to attain it; the singleness of purpose; and, lastly, ... stubborn will. #Quote by Ferdinand Foch
Quality quotes by Douglas Murray
#140. Nevertheless, the idea that Europeans have simply stopped having enough children and must as a result ensure that the next generation is comprised of immigrants is a disastrous fallacy for several reasons. The first is because of the mistaken assumption that a country's population should always remain the same or indeed continue rising. The nation states of Europe include some of the most densely populated countries on the planet. It is not at all obvious that the quality of life in these countries will improve if the population continues growing. What is more, when migrants arrive in these countries they move to the big cities, not to the remaining sparsely populated areas. So although among European states Britain, along with Belgium and the Netherlands, is one of the most densely populated countries, England taken on its own would be the second most densely populated country in Europe. Migrants tend not to head to the Highlands of Scotland or the wilds of Dartmoor. And so a constantly increasing population causes population problems in areas that are already suffering housing supply problems and where infrastructure like public transport struggles to keep up with swiftly expanding populations. #Quote by Douglas Murray
Quality quotes by Charles Dance
#141. It starts with the writing - which is really, really good. And the production values are phenomenal. HBO and Sky have spent money on it, and you get what you pay for. This has money put into it properly - not lavish amounts - but as each season is successful, they maintain the money that's being spent to maintain the quality. #Quote by Charles Dance
Quality quotes by KC Craichy
#142. 1. Eating fewer calories while maintaining optimal levels of all essential nutrients - CRON. 2. Eating and supplementing with generous amounts of broad- spectrum antioxidants. 3.

Quality quotes by Fred Upton
#148. The national debate on health care once centered on improving access to quality care, yet the effect of Obamacare will be the exact opposite, resulting in the shameful degradation of care for the neediest individuals. #Quote by Fred Upton
Quality quotes by Mickey Mantle
#149. Bravery is a complicated thing to describe. You can't say it's three feet long and two feet wide and that it weighs four hundred pounds or that it's colored bright blue or that it sounds like a piano or that it smells like roses. It's a quality, not a thing. #Quote by Mickey Mantle
Quality quotes by Anonymous
#150. the possession and activation of truthful information untenable for disclosure, the asking of questions that place demands on speakers for specific and detailed information, and the failure (through memory search and retrieval processes) to find associated false information that quickly can be deployed to construct a Quality violation responsive to these questions. #Quote by Anonymous

Quality quotes by Frithjof Schuon
#152. That is sacred which in the first place is attached to the transcendent order, secondly, possesses the character of absolute certainty and, thirdly, eludes the comprehension and power of investigation of the ordinary human mind ... The sacred is the presence of the centre in the periphery, of the motionless in the moving; dignity is essentially an expression of it, for in dignity too the centre manifests at the exterior; the heart is revealed in gestures. The sacred introduces a quality of the absolute into relativities and confers on perishable things a texture of eternity. #Quote by Frithjof Schuon
Quality quotes by Joyce Meyer
#153. Have you ever gone to the furniture store to buy a chair without sitting in it? Have you ever purchased a car without test-driving it? Of course not, and God also tests us to reveal the quality of our faith. No matter what we think of ourselves, we find out what we are truly like in times of difficulty. Good times don't bring the worst out of us, but hard times do. That is why God says these difficult times are good for us. They allow us to see what is in our character that needs to be changed. They also give us opportunity to use our faith, and faith only grows through our using it. As we choose to learn to trust God instead of getting upset about something, we experience His faithfulness, which, in turn, increases our faith for the next time we need it. The more we use our muscles, the more they grow - and our faith is the same way. #Quote by Joyce Meyer

Quality quotes by L. Ron Hubbard
#156. Every separate sector of artistic creation has its own basic rules ... data which govern it. They are contained in the textbooks on these subjects. A professional knows the rules of the game as a matter of course so that he can achieve, in the upper strata above that, a high quality of art. #Quote by L. Ron Hubbard
Quality quotes by Hilary Swank
#157. When I was a swimmer and I would lose a heat in something I was doing whether it backstroke or breaststroke, were two of my most strongest strokes, I would look at how whoever it was that won and beat me and think, "What did they do? What were ... What were the qualities that they had that I can incorporate into my swimming to make me better?" #Quote by Hilary Swank
Quality quotes by Robert Pinsky
#158. The last thing a young artist should do in poetry or any other field is think about what's in style, what's current, what are the trends. Think instead of what you like to read, what do you admire, what you like to listen to in music. What do you like to look at in architecture? Try to make a poem that has some of those qualities. #Quote by Robert Pinsky
Quality quotes by Tom Cox
#159. There's also something about ageing and the concomitant awareness of the fleeting nature of existence that tends to make you less worried about being ridiculous, and less judgemental about the quality of ridiculousness in others. #Quote by Tom Cox
Quality quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#160. [On the] question of why we might want to look at images even more than the real thing: I think there is some quality when you look at an image of, not only seeing this thing, whether it's the horse or the sky, but you are seeing somebody point at it and say, Look! #Quote by Rebecca Solnit

Quality quotes by L.A. Paul
#163. I argue, based on metaphysical and physical considerations, that we should think of the fundamental parts of the world as a mix of intrinsic natures, rather like a paint-pot filled with a rainbow of colors, loosely mixed to give a richly varied, spatiotemporally inseparable, spread of qualities, and that this mixture is what gives rise to ordinary reality. #Quote by L.A. Paul

#165. Sympathy, Love, Fortune ... We all have these qualities but still tend to not use them! #Quote by Anne Frank
Quality quotes by Paul Bogard
#166. To think that melancholy--which seems a natural response to the coexisting realities of beauty and mortality--is the same as clinical depression is tragically mistaken. Words like "sad," "gloomy," and "depressed" leave no room for the rich, dark quality of melancholy, which I've always seen as a sensitive appreciation that change is happening every second of our lives, that everything and everyone we love will die, and that in knowing this we have the opportunity to share our gratitude while we still do have time. #Quote by Paul Bogard
Quality quotes by Janet Fitch
#167. The stroke of the brush was the evidence of the gesture of your arm. A record of your existence, the quality of your personality, your touch, pressure, the authority of your movement. #Quote by Janet Fitch
Quality quotes by Maureen Ogle
#168. [N]ow that growing your own (food, dope, hair, younameit) is hip," wrote the author of an essay widely reprinted in alternative newspapers, "it's time to resurrect the Dope of the Depression - Homebrew." Homemade beer inspired "good vibrations" and a "pleasant high." Unlike the rest of "plastic, mass-produced shit" of modern America, homebrew represented "an exercise of craft" and empowered the "politically oriented" to retaliate against "Augustus [sic] Busch and the other fascists pigs who [were] ripping off the Common Man." "If you're looking for a cheap drunk," added the beer adviser, "go back to Gussie Busch. But if you dig the good vibes from using something you make yourself, plus an improvement in quality over the commercial shit," brew on, brothers and sisters, brew on. #Quote by Maureen Ogle
Quality quotes by Jane Roberts
#169. Reality is so constructed that each individual seeking such fulfillment does so not at the expense of others, but in such a way that the quality of life is increased for all. #Quote by Jane Roberts
Quality quotes by Harmony Korine
#170. When I had my first camera - I was a child of the '80s. I remember what it was like reusing the same tapes over and over again, and having really bad quality and images kind of bubbling up from under the surface. #Quote by Harmony Korine
Quality quotes by Michael Sucsy
#171. When I first started working on movies as a production assistant, we were shooting 65, 75, 85 days. I mean, granted some of those things were "Godzilla," "Deep Impact," and those kinds of things, but these days it's like 30-35 days or 40-45 days and you just feel like you're humping trying to get everything done. It's like "Move on, move on, move on!" That's not the way to get the best performances or the most interesting shots. You have to constantly balance schedule and quality of work. For me, that's the biggest thing. #Quote by Michael Sucsy
Quality quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#172. Precisely the least thing, the gentlest, lightest, the rustling of a lizard, a breath, a moment, a twinkling of the eye - little makes up the quality of the best happiness. Soft! #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche

Quality quotes by Jonathan Rosen
#175. It's the side-by-side culture of the Talmud I like so much. 'On the one hand' and 'on the other hand' is frustrating for people seeking absolute faith, but for me it gives religion an ambidextrous quality that suits my temperament. #Quote by Jonathan Rosen
Quality quotes by Sandra Scarr
#176. We know that babies develop as well in nonmaternal as in maternal care, as long as the care is of good quality. The issue is not who gives the care but the quality of that care, ... The guilt trip is, in my view, a hangover of another era and of unacknowledged tactics to keep women in their proper place
at home full-time. #Quote by Sandra Scarr
Quality quotes by Michael Pollan
#177. Essentially, we have a system where wealthy farmers feed the poor crap and poor farmers feed the wealthy high-quality food. #Quote by Michael Pollan
Quality quotes by Louise Berliawsky Nevelson
#178. A white lace curtain on the window was for me as important as a great work of art. This gossamer quality, the reflection, the form, the movement. I learned more about art from that than I did in school. #Quote by Louise Berliawsky Nevelson

#179. We like to think of individuals as unique. Yet if this is true of everyone, then we all share the same quality, namely our uniqueness. What we have in common is the fact that we are all uncommon. Everybody is special, which means that nobody is. The truth, however, is that human beings are uncommon only up to a point. There are no qualities that are peculiar to one person alone. Regrettably, there could not be a world in which only one individual was irascible, vindictive or lethally aggressive. This is because human beings are not fundamentally all that different from each other, a truth postmodernists are reluctant to concede. We share an enormous amount in common simply by virtue of being human, and this is revealed by the vocabularies we have for discussing human character. We even share the social processes by which we come to individuate ourselves. #Quote by Terry Eagleton
Quality quotes by Colson Whitehead
#180. Looking at them now as folks chased in and out, getting ready, it was hard for Cora to image a time when the fourteen cabins hadn't been there. For all the wear, the complaints from deep in the wood at every step, the cabins had the always-quality of the hills to the west, of the creek that bisected the property. The cabins radiated permanence and in turn summed timeless feelings in those who lived and died in them: envy and spite. If they'd left more space between the old cabins and the new cabins it would have spared a lot of grief over the years. #Quote by Colson Whitehead
Quality quotes by Joan D. Chittister
#181. This compulsion to look back, to explain to myself, to others, why I did what I did - or, worse, to justify why I didn't do something else - is one of the most direct roads to depression we have. Our thoughts, emotions, and attitudes, according to Dr. Andrew Weil in his book Healthy Aging, are "key determinants of how we age." They can threaten the quality of time we bring to the present. #Quote by Joan D. Chittister
Quality quotes by Dr. Sherwin Nuland
#182. There is no way to deter old age from its grim duty, but a life of accomplishments makes up in quality for what it cannot add in quantity. #Quote by Dr. Sherwin Nuland
Quality quotes by Edward Said
#183. It [9/11 event] transcended the political and moved into the metaphysical. There was a kind of cosmic, demonic quality of mind at work here, which refused to have any interest in dialogue and political organization and persuasion. #Quote by Edward Said
Quality quotes by William James
#184. An act has no ethical quality whatever unless it be chosen out of several all equally possible. #Quote by William James
Quality quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#185. The American Dream can no more remain static than can the American nation ... We cannot any longer take an old approach to world problems. They aren't the same problems. It isn't the same world. We must not adopt the methods of our ancestors; instead, we must emulate that pioneer quality in our ancestors that made them attempt new methods for a New World. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Quality quotes by Jerome Frank
#186. The test of the moral quality of a civilization is its treatment of the weak and powerless. #Quote by Jerome Frank
Quality quotes by Foz Meadows
#187. We think of men as antiheroes, as capable of occupying an intense and fascinating moral grey area; of being able to fall, and rise, and fall again, but still be worthy of love on some fundamental level, because if it was the world and its failings that broke them, then we surely must owe them some sympathy. But women aren't allowed to be broken by the world; or if we are, it's the breaking that makes us villains. Wronged women turn into avenging furies, inhuman and monstrous: once we cross to the dark side, we become adversaries to be defeated, not lost souls in need of mending. Which is what happens, when you let benevolent sexism invest you in the idea that women are humanity's moral guardians and men its native renegades: because if female goodness is only ever an inherent quality – something we're born both with and to be – then once lost, it must necessarily be lost forever, a severed limb we can't regrow. Whereas male goodness, by virtue of being an acquired quality – something bestowed through the kindness of women, earned through right action or learned through struggle – can just as necessarily be gained and lost multiple times without being tarnished, like a jewel we might pawn in hardship, and later reclaim. #Quote by Foz Meadows
Quality quotes by Janis Ian
#188. So remember those who win the game
Lose the love they sought to gain
In debitures of quality and dubious integrity
Their small-town eyes will gape at you
In dull surprise when payment due
Exceeds accounts received at seventeen #Quote by Janis Ian
Quality quotes by William Klein
#189. The New York book was a visual diary and it was also kind of personal newspaper. I wanted it to look like the news. I didn't relate to European photography. It was too poetic and anecdotal for me ... the kinetic quality of new york, the kids, dirt, madness - I tried to find a photographic style that would come close to it. So I would be grainy and contrasted and black. Id crop, blur, play with the negatives. I didn't see clean technique being right for New York. I could imagine my pictures lying in the gutter like the New York Daily News. #Quote by William Klein
Quality quotes by Miranda July
#190. I mean obviously we're all dealing with a lot more strangers due to the web. I'd say it has more to do with the quality of interactions. When you're physically interacting with someone, it forces you to be more present and probably a little more uncomfortable. You have to tolerate being outside the comfort of your own home. #Quote by Miranda July
Quality quotes by Dylan Moran
#191. I don't watch a whole lot of stand up. Mainly I prefer to read writers; they make me laugh the most. Something gets you when you're alone and someone's voice is coming through their work. There's a different quality to it that stays with you a bit more. #Quote by Dylan Moran
Quality quotes by Brad Duguid

#193. Intuition is truly a feminine quality, but women should not mistake rash conclusions for this gift. #Quote by Minna Antrim
Quality quotes by Giovanni Boccaccio
#194. To have compassion for those who suffer is a human quality which everyone should possess, especially those who have required comfort themselves in the past and have managed to find it in others. #Quote by Giovanni Boccaccio
Quality quotes by Tyson Fury
#195. I will become the greatest, because all travellers have to be able to adapt. That quality, adaptability, is essential to that way of life. Not many boxers have it but I can adapt before a fight to the opponent, during the fight if necessary. #Quote by Tyson Fury
Quality quotes by Cathy Rigby
#196. So it really does have a sort of bittersweet quality. Kids like to have adventures and to believe they can fly, but there's also that fear about people leaving you. #Quote by Cathy Rigby
Quality quotes by George Eliot
#197. It is, I fear, but a vain show of fulfilling the heathen precept, 'Know thyself,' and too often leads to a self- estimate which will subsist in the absence of that fruit by which alone the quality of the tree is made evident. #Quote by George Eliot
Quality quotes by Gary Snyder
#198. The blue mountains are constantly walking." Dōgen is quoting the Chan master Furong. -- "If you doubt mountains walking you do not know your own walking."

-- Dōgen is not concerned with "sacred mountains" - or pilgrimages, or spirit allies, or wilderness as some special quality. His mountains and streams are the processes of this earth, all of existence, process, essence, action, absence; they roll being and non-being together. They are what we are, we are what they are. For those who would see directly into essential nature, the idea of the sacred is a delusion and an obstruction: it diverts us from seeing what is before our eyes: plain thusness. Roots, stems, and branches are all equally scratchy. No hierarchy, no equality. No occult and exoteric, no gifted kids and slow achievers. No wild and tame, no bound or free, no natural and artificial. Each totally its own frail self. Even though connected all which ways; even because connected all which ways. This, thusness, is the nature of the nature of nature. The wild in wild.

So the blue mountains walk to the kitchen and back to the shop, to the desk, to the stove. We sit on the park bench and let the wind and rain drench us. The blue mountains walk out to put another coin in the parking meter, and go down to the 7-Eleven. The blue mountains march out of the sea, shoulder the sky for a while, and slip back to into the waters. #Quote by Gary Snyder

#199. The data set of proxies of past climate used in Mann ... for the estimation of temperature from 1400 to 1980 contains collation errors, unjustifiable truncation or extrapolation of source data, obsolete data, geographical location errors, incorrect calculation of principal components and other quality control defects. #Quote by Steve McIntyre
