Sufficient quotes by Saint John Chrysostom
#1. If the Lord should give you power to raise the dead, He would give much less than He does when he bestows suffering. By miracles you would make yourself debtor to Him, while by suffering He may become debtor to you. And even if sufferings had no other reward than being able to bear something for that God who loves you, is not this a great reward and a sufficient remuneration? Whoever loves, understands what I say. #Quote by Saint John Chrysostom
Sufficient quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#2. One of the most dangerous classes in the world," said he, "is the drifting and friendless woman. She is the most harmless and often the most useful of mortals, but she is the inevitable inciter of crime in others. She is helpless. She is migratory. She has sufficient means to take her from country to country and from hotel to hotel. She is lost, as often as not, in a maze of obscure pensions and boardinghouses. She is a stray chicken in a world of foxes. When she is gobbled up she is hardly missed. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Sufficient quotes by Oliver Goldsmith
#3. If we look round the world, there seem to be not above six distinct varieties in the human species, each of which is strongly marked, and speaks the kind seldom to have mixed with any other. But there is nothing in the shape, nothing in the faculties, that shows their coming from different originals; and the varieties of climate, of nourishment, and custom, are sufficient to produce every change. #Quote by Oliver Goldsmith
Sufficient quotes by Malcolm X
#4. An integrated cup of coffee isn't sufficient pay for four hundred years of slave labor. #Quote by Malcolm X
Sufficient quotes by Veronica Roth
#5. Want something else more than success. Success is a lovely thing, but your desire to say something, your worth, and your identity shouldn't rely on it, because it's not guaranteed and it's not permanent and it's not sufficient. So work hard, fall in love with the writing - the characters, the story, the words, the themes - and make sure that you are who you are regardless of your life circumstances. That way, when the good things come, they don't warp you, and when the bad things hit you, you don't fall apart. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Sufficient quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#6. Literature, although it stands apart by reason of the great destiny and general use of its medium in the affairs of men, is yet an art like other arts. Of these we may distinguish two great classes: those arts, like sculpture, painting, acting, which are representative, or as used to be said very clumsily, imitative; and those, like architecture, music, and the dance, which are self-sufficient, and merely presentative. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Sufficient quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#7. I am not fully informed of the practices at Harvard, but there is one from which we shall certainly vary, although it has been copied, I believe, by nearly every college and academy in the United States. That is, the holding the students all to one prescribed course of reading, and disallowing exclusive application to those branches only which are to qualify them for the particular vocations to which they are destined. We shall, on the contrary, allow them uncontrolled choice in the lectures they shall choose to attend, and require elementary qualification only, and sufficient age. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Sufficient quotes by Wendell Berry
#8. He could see. And he walked along, feeling the joy of a man who sees, a joy that a man tends to forget in sufficient light. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Sufficient quotes by Leonard Ravenhill
#9. The self-sufficient does not pray, the self-satisfied will not pray, the self-righteous cannot pray. No man is greater than his prayer life. #Quote by Leonard Ravenhill
Sufficient quotes by Frank Carlucci
#10. The problem is that neither the M1 nor the M60 or indeed neither any tank, has sufficient ground pressure to drive a [bulldozer] blade into even marginally hard ground. They are not bulldozers, they are tanks, whether you are talking about the M1 or the M60's. So if you are going to dig in a tank, you need to have some kind of equipment. #Quote by Frank Carlucci
Sufficient quotes by Fran Lebowitz
#11. If you are of the opinion that the contemplation of suicide is sufficient evidence of a poetic nature, do not forget that actions speak louder than words. #Quote by Fran Lebowitz
Sufficient quotes by Fanny Fern
#12. It is the most astonishing thing that persons who have not sufficient education to spell correctly, to punctuate properly, to place capital letters in the right places, should, when other means of support fail, send mss. for publication. #Quote by Fanny Fern
Sufficient quotes by Stendhal
#13. A very small degree of hope is sufficient to cause the birth of love. #Quote by Stendhal
Sufficient quotes by Raymond Crane
#14. A little bit of everything is sufficient, thanx! #Quote by Raymond Crane
Sufficient quotes by Angie Harmon
#15. I want my girls to be strong and self-sufficient. #Quote by Angie Harmon
Sufficient quotes by Michael Perry
#16. We talk about how he and Leanne are doing knowing full well there is no sufficient answer.
p 294 #Quote by Michael Perry
Sufficient quotes by Matthieu Ricard
#17. These general surveys have found that the sense of happiness is higher in countries that ensure their inhabitants' basic resources, greater security, autonomy, and freedom, as well as sufficient educational opportunities and access to information. People are manifestly happier in countries where personal freedoms are guaranteed and democracy secure. This is only to be expected: citizens are happier in a climate of peace. Regardless of economic conditions, those who live under military rule are unhappier. #Quote by Matthieu Ricard
Sufficient quotes by Joseph Wood Krutch
#18. The snow itself is lonely or, if you prefer, self-sufficient. There is no other time when the whole world seems composed of one thing and one thing only. #Quote by Joseph Wood Krutch
Sufficient quotes by Dalai Lama
#19. Humans are not machines-we are something more. We have feeling and experience. Material comforts are not sufficient to satisfy us. We need something deeper-human affection. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Sufficient quotes by Steven L. Peck
#20. Here, her hand in mine was the one reality that severed us from the cold click-clack of Hell. I rubbed her hand and she sighed; wasn't that meaning? Wasn't that something we could cling to? I could be with this other. I could form no other relation, but maybe her hand in mine was enough, both sufficient and necessary. In Hell there was no sense of place, because all places were the same. Uniform monotony. A place without place. A place without context. But, here, now, I could rub her hand and she would sigh. She was a difference. Perhaps each person was the only difference in all these halls of unchanging ranks of books, kiosks, clocks, and carpet, and that, and that, at least, we had to hold to. #Quote by Steven L. Peck
Sufficient quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#21. There are sufficient and suitable accommodations for all the different sorts of persons that are in the world: for great and small, for high and low, rich and poor, wise and unwise, bond and free, persons of all nations and all conditions and circumstances, for those that have been great sinners as well as for moral livers; for weak saints and those that are babes in Christ as well as for those that are stronger and more grown in grace. #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Sufficient quotes by Amey Hegde
#22. Determine what your top priorities in life are and keep aside sufficient time for them in your schedule. #Quote by Amey Hegde
Sufficient quotes by Sam Harris
#23. In the year 2006, a person can have sufficient intellectual and material resources to build a nuclear bomb and still believe that he will get seventy-two virgins in Paradise. #Quote by Sam Harris
Sufficient quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#24. Problems, obstacles and difficulties are in themselves not a sufficient reason for a person to suffer defeat. It is possible to overcome any obstacle #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Sufficient quotes by AngstGoddess003
#25. ...we'd be okay. Not perfect, not entirely healthy, not even rational where our love for one another was concerned. Just okay. Merely sufficient, at best. But there'd be only acceptance - never shame - in being two divine failures as we emerged from slumber, perfectly flawed, and wide awake. #Quote by AngstGoddess003
Sufficient quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#26. Good breeding, a union of kindness and independence. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Sufficient quotes by Gary Zukav
#27. The requirements for our evolution have changed. Survival is no longer sufficient. Our evolution now requires us to develop spiritually - to become emotionally aware and make responsible choices. It requires us to align ourselves with the values of the soul - harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for life. #Quote by Gary Zukav
Sufficient quotes by Harald Blomberg
#28. The infant needs to develop sufficient muscle tone in order to be able to move around and stimulate this linking together. To establish tone, the infant needs to be touched, hugged, and rocked, as well as being allowed to move around freely. Such stimulation sends signals from the sense organs of the tactile, balance and kinaesthetic senses to those centres of the brain stem that regulate muscle tone. If the baby gets insufficient stimulation from these senses the tone of the extensor muscles will be low.3 This may make it difficult for the baby to lift his head and chest and move around, further reducing the stimulation from the balance, tactile and kinaesthetic senses, leading to a particularly vicious cycle of developmental delay. #Quote by Harald Blomberg
Sufficient quotes by Ben Bernanke
#29. The failure of Lehman Brothers demonstrated that liquidity provision by the Federal Reserve would not be sufficient to stop the crisis; substantial fiscal resources were necessary. #Quote by Ben Bernanke
Sufficient quotes by Napoleon Hill
#30. Fear of poverty is a state of mind, nothing else! But it is sufficient to destroy one's chances of achievement in any undertaking, a truth which became painfully evident during the depression. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Sufficient quotes by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz
#31. [...] we can find no true or existent fact, no true assertion, without there being a sufficient reason why it is thus and not otherwise, although most of the time these reasons cannot be known to us. #Quote by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz
Sufficient quotes by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
#32. If we gained only one incontestable truth every ten years from each of our philosophical writers the harvest we reaped would be sufficient. #Quote by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
Sufficient quotes by Thomas More
#33. For it is too extreme and cruel a punishment for theft, and yet not sufficient to restrain men from theft. For simple theft is not so great an offense that it ought to be punished with death. Neither is there any punishment that is so horrible that it can keep men from stealing who have no other craft whereby to get their living. #Quote by Thomas More
Sufficient quotes by Anonymous Quote On Proof
#34. If you Believe something, No Proof is Necessary! If you Do Not Believe something, No Proof is Sufficient"! #Quote by Anonymous Quote On Proof
Sufficient quotes by Samuel Johnson
#35. The duties of religion, sincerely and regularly performed, will always be sufficient to exalt the meanest and to exercise the highest understanding. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Sufficient quotes by Rebecca Goldstein
#36. In fact, the answers that religion, as we have come to know it, provides to the question of human worth have played so dominant a role in the preceding centuries that believers often cannot conceive how non-believers can muster sufficient commitment to their own lives to get out of bed each morning, let alone the ethical wherewithal to regard others as deserving of moral regard. Once one "comes out" as an atheist, these are the inquisitions to which one is often subjected. #Quote by Rebecca Goldstein
Sufficient quotes by William Carey
#37. All my friends are but one, but He is all sufficient. #Quote by William Carey
Sufficient quotes by George Mason
#38. That elections of members to serve as representatives of the people, in assembly, ought to be free; and that all men, having sufficient evidence of permanent common interest with, and attachment to, the community, have the right of suffrage, and cannot be taxed or deprived of their property for public uses, without their own consent, or that of their representives so elected, nor bound by any law to which they have not, in like manner, assembled, for the public good. #Quote by George Mason
Sufficient quotes by Brennan Manning
#39. Grace is sufficient even though we huff and puff with all our might to try and find something or someone that it cannot cover. Grace is enough. #Quote by Brennan Manning
Sufficient quotes by Paddy Ashdown
#40. Maybe it's legitimate criticism, though it can be hurtful. Maybe I haven't paid sufficient attention to the people with whom I would have a natural affinity as a liberal, and they feel let down by that. #Quote by Paddy Ashdown
Sufficient quotes by Goldwin Smith
#41. The natural barriers between England and Scotland were not sufficient to prevent the extension of the Saxon settlements and kingdoms across the border. #Quote by Goldwin Smith
Sufficient quotes by Richard North Patterson
#42. labeled, "high school for the rich and vapid." "'If you want a friend,' he admonished me, 'don't choose the insecure, the envious, or the needy. They're the ones who will sell you out. Those you can trust are confident and secure, men and women who like their lives, and don't have to meet their needs at your expense. So no gossips, back stabbers, or celebrity fuckers. No one who has to tell you who they know, what they own, how important they are, or whose self-concept depends on the acceptance of others. The only people who can truly care about you are those who are sufficient unto themselves. #Quote by Richard North Patterson
Sufficient quotes by Joyce Meyer
#43. I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiency]. PHILIPPIANS 4:13 #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Sufficient quotes by Mark Twain
#44. Wherefore, I beseech you let the dog and the onions and these people of the strange and godless names work out their several salvations from their piteous and wonderful difficulties without help of mine, for indeed their trouble is sufficient as it is, whereas an I tried to help I should but damage their cause the more and yet mayhap not live myself to see the desolation wrought. #Quote by Mark Twain
Sufficient quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#45. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Sufficient quotes by Margery Wilson
#46. To be alive is sufficient evidence that we are needed in the world. Otherwise we wouldn't be here. #Quote by Margery Wilson
Sufficient quotes by Howard Scott
#47. Criminal: a person with predatory instincts who has not sufficient capital to form a corporation. #Quote by Howard Scott
Sufficient quotes by Frederic Bastiat
#48. Here I encounter the most popular fallacy of our times. It is not considered sufficient that the law should guarantee to every citizen the free and inoffensive use of his faculties for physical, intellectual and moral self-improvement. Instead, it is demanded that the law should directly extend welfare, education, and morality throughout the nation. This is the seductive lure of socialism. And I repeat: these two uses of the law are in direct contradiction to each other. #Quote by Frederic Bastiat
Sufficient quotes by Yamamoto Tsunetomo
#49. Death seems to be a long way off. Is this not shallow thinking? It is worthless and is only a joke within a dream. It will not do to think in such a way and be negligent. Insofar as death is always at one's door, one should make sufficient effort and act quickly. #Quote by Yamamoto Tsunetomo
Sufficient quotes by Adrienne Rich
#50. Rural Reflections
This is the grass your feet are planted on.
You paint it orange or you sing it green,
But you have never found
A way to make the grass mean what you mean.
A cloud can be whatever you intend:
Ostrich or leaning tower or staring eye.
But you have never found
A cloud sufficient to express the sky.
Get out there with your splendid expertise;
Raymond who cuts the meadow does not less.
Inhuman nature says:
Inhuman patience is the true success.
Human impatience trips you as you run;
Stand still and you must lie.
It is the grass that cuts the mower down;
It is the cloud that swallows up the sky. #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Sufficient quotes by Joseph F. Smith
#51. Of what use is it that we know the truth, if we lack its spirit? Our knowledge, in this event, becomes a condemnation to us, failing to bear fruit. It is not sufficient that we know the truth, but we must be humble with this knowledge possess the spirit to actuate us to good deeds. Baptism, as well as all other outward ordinances, without the spirit accompanying, is useless. We remain but baptized sinners. #Quote by Joseph F. Smith
Sufficient quotes by August Kubizek
#52. It was not sympathy in the ordinary sense which he [Adolf Hitler] felt for the disinherited. That would not have been sufficient. He not only suffered with them, he lived for them and devoted all his thoughts to the salvation of those people from distress and poverty ... his noble and grandiose work, which was intended 'for everybody' ... #Quote by August Kubizek
Sufficient quotes by Maximilien Robespierre
#53. Again, it may be said, that to love justice and equality the people need no great effort of virtue; it is sufficient that they love themselves. #Quote by Maximilien Robespierre
Sufficient quotes by Thomas J. Stanley
Sufficient quotes by Thomas D'Arcy McGee
#55. We should strengthen the faith of our people in their own future, the faith of every Canadian in Canada, and of every province in its sister province. This faith wrongs no one; burdens no one; menaces no one; dishonors no one; and, as it was said of old, faith moves mountains, so I venture reverently to express my own belief that if the difficulties of our future as a dominion were as high as the peaks of the Alps or Andes, yet that the pure patriotic faith of a united people would be all sufficient to overcome and ultimately to triumph over all such difficulties. #Quote by Thomas D'Arcy McGee
Sufficient quotes by Nyona Matende
#56. Only fools and liars claim to know everything because the fool thinks all that he knows is everything and the liar knows there is no sufficient data to know everything #Quote by Nyona Matende
Sufficient quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#57. The boatmen appeared to lead an easy and contented life, and we thought that we should prefer their employment ourselves to many professions which are much more sought after. They suggested how few circumstances are necessary to the well-being and serenity of man, how indifferent all employments are, and that any may seem noble and poetic to the eyes of men, if pursued with sufficient buoyancy and freedom. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Sufficient quotes by Anonymous
#58. One soul with sufficient light and knowledge can do more to help the world than a hundred without it, battling in the darkness. #Quote by Anonymous
Sufficient quotes by Anita B. Sulser PhD
#59. t is rational to be weary of mass migration. Logically thinking, it signals an awareness that we do not produce a sufficient quantity of resources to feed, home and clothe our own, so how can we become an idyllic multicultural society, which provides equally for everyone? #Quote by Anita B. Sulser PhD
Sufficient quotes by George Sarton
#60. My main interest ... is the love of truth, whether pleasant or not. Truth is self-sufficient, and there is nothing to which it can be subordinated without loss. When truth is made subservient to anything else, however great (say religion), it becomes impure and sordid. #Quote by George Sarton
Sufficient quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#61. Had his brain been constructed of silk, he would have been hard put to it to find sufficient material to make a canary a pair of cami-knickers. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Sufficient quotes by Sam Wasson
#62. Those without color - say, dressed in all black - can go about almost unnoticed. Where the rainbow is conspicuous, their darkness acts as a kind of camouflage, masculine by contrast, and allows them to watch without being watched. It's the choice of someone who needs not to attract. Someone self-sufficient. Someone more distant, less knowable, and ultimately, mysterious. Powerful. #Quote by Sam Wasson
Sufficient quotes by Gertrude Atherton
#63. The only two good words that can be said for a hurricane are that it gives sufficient warning of its approach, and that it blows from one point of the compass at a time. #Quote by Gertrude Atherton
Sufficient quotes by Horatio Dresser
#64. Be true to the best you know. This is your high ideal. If you do your best, you cannot do more. Do your best every day and your life will gradually expand into satisfying fullness. Cultivate the habit of doing one thing at a time with quiet deliberateness. Always allow yourself a sufficient margin of time in which to do your work well. Frequently examine your working methods to discover and eliminate unnecessary tension. Aim at poise, repose, and self-control. The relaxed worker accomplishes most. #Quote by Horatio Dresser
Sufficient quotes by William Zinsser
#65. Beware, then, of the long word that's no better than the short word: "assistance" (help), "numerous" (many), "facilitate" (ease), "Individual" (man or woman), "remainder" (rest), "initial" (first), "implement" (do), "sufficient" (enough), "attempt" (try), "referred to as" (called), and hundreds more. Beware of all the slippery new fad words: paradigm and parameter, prioritize and potentialize. They are all weeds that will smother what you write. Don't dialogue with someone you can talk to. Don't interface with anybody. #Quote by William Zinsser
Sufficient quotes by Plutarch
#66. A few vices are sufficient to darken many virtues. #Quote by Plutarch
Sufficient quotes by Bryan Caplan
#67. There are two sources of error: Either you lack sufficient data, or you fail to take advantage of the data that you have. #Quote by Bryan Caplan
Sufficient quotes by China Mieville
#68. My dad hates umbrellas, said Deeba, swinging her own. When it rains he always says the same thing. 'I do not believe the presence of moisture in the air is sufficient reason to overturn society's usual sensible taboo against wielding spiked clubs at eye level. #Quote by China Mieville
Sufficient quotes by Andrzej Sapkowski
#69. For him the points of the compass have no great importance. It's all the same to him which one he chooses, as long as he's not idle. That is truly a witcher's principium. The world is full of evil, so it's sufficient to stride ahead, and destroy the Evil encountered on the way, in that way rendering a service to Good. The rest takes care of itself. Being in motion is everything, the goal is nothing. #Quote by Andrzej Sapkowski
Sufficient quotes by Patrick Pearse
#70. You cannot conquer Ireland. You cannot extinguish the Irish passion for freedom. If our deed has not been sufficient to win freedom, then our children will win by a better deed. #Quote by Patrick Pearse
Sufficient quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#71. I knew then and I know now only what my heart feels to be true, you see - that without the love of our Lord, I am a wretch. This is the only miracle I can evidence, and a sufficient miracle it remains for me. For others, perhaps it is not sufficient. I can scarcely fault them, for they cannot see into my heart. They cannot see the darkness that was once there, nor can they see what has replaced it. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Sufficient quotes by San Juan De La Cruz
#72. For one single affection remaining in the soul, or any one matter to which the mind clings either habitually or actually, is sufficient to prevent all perception and all communication of the tender and interior sweetness of the spirit of love, which contains within itself all sweetness supremely. #Quote by San Juan De La Cruz
Sufficient quotes by Joseph-Louis Lagrange
#73. It has cost them but a moment to cut off that head; but a hundred years will not be sufficient to produce another like it. #Quote by Joseph-Louis Lagrange
Sufficient quotes by H.L. Mencken
#74. For it is the natural tendency of the ignorant to believe what is not true. In order to overcome that tendency it is not sufficient to exhibit the true; it is also necessary to expose and denounce the false. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Sufficient quotes by George C. Marshall
#75. The one great element in continuing the success of an offensive is maintaining the momentum. #Quote by George C. Marshall
Sufficient quotes by David O. McKay
#76. "We don't take sufficient time to meditate." I get up early in the morning ... five o'clock, when my mind and spirit are clear and rested. Then I meditate ... #Quote by David O. McKay
Sufficient quotes by Rahm Emanuel
#77. I do not believe that a counterterrorism strategy all by itself, without a sufficient level of counterinsurgency, will work. #Quote by Rahm Emanuel
Sufficient quotes by Amartya Sen
#78. If a theory of justice is to guide reasoned choice of policies, strategies or institutions, then the identification of fully just social arrangements is neither necessary nor sufficient. #Quote by Amartya Sen
Sufficient quotes by Scott Anderson
#79. In keeping with original Mormon teachings, much of the property in Hildale and Colorado City is held in trust for the church. Striving to be as self-sufficient as possible, the community grows a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, and everyone, including children, is expected to help bring in the yield. #Quote by Scott Anderson
Sufficient quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#80. Poem Written in a Copy of Beowulf
At various times, I have asked myself what reasons
moved me to study, while my night came down,
without particular hope of satisfaction,
the language of the blunt-tongued Anglo-Saxons.
Used up by the years, my memory
loses its grip on words that I have vainly
repeated and repeated. My life in the same way
weaves and unweaves its weary history.
Then I tell myself: it must be that the soul
has some secret, sufficient way of knowing
that it is immortal, that its vast, encompassing
circle can take in all, can accomplish all.
Beyond my anxiety, beyond this writing,
the universe waits, inexhaustible, inviting. #Quote by Jorge Luis Borges
Sufficient quotes by Robert Burton
#81. I am not poor, I am not rich; nihil est, nihil deest, I have little, I want nothing: all my treasure is in Minerva's tower ... I live still a collegiate student ... and lead a monastic life, ipse mihi theatrum [sufficient entertainment to myself], sequestered from those tumults and troubles of the world ... aulae vanitatem, fori ambitionem, ridere mecum soleo [I laugh to myself at the vanities of the court, the intrigues of public life], I laugh at all. #Quote by Robert Burton
Sufficient quotes by Jane Austen
#82. Emma's eyes were instantly withdrawn; and she sat silently meditating, in a fixed attitude, for a few minutes. A few minutes were sufficient for making her acquainted with her own heart. A mind like hers, once opening to suspicion, made rapid progress. She touched - she admitted - she acknowledged the whole truth. Why was it so much worse that Harriet should be in love with Mr. Knightley, than with Frank Churchill? Why was the evil so dreadfully increased by Harriet's having some hope of a return? It darted through her, with the speed of an arrow, that Mr. Knightley must marry no one but herself! #Quote by Jane Austen
Sufficient quotes by James Madison
#83. I have observed that gentlemen suppose that the general legislature will do every thing mischievous they possibly can, and that they will omit to do every thing good which they are authorized to do. If this were a reasonable supposition, their objections would be good. I consider it reasonable to conclude that they will as readily do their duty as deviate from it; nor do I go on the grounds mentioned by gentlemen on the other side - that we are to place unlimited confidence in them, and expect nothing but the most exalted integrity and sublime virtue. But I go on this great republican principle, that the people will have virtue and intelligence to select men of virtue and wisdom. Is there no virtue among us? If there be not, we are in a wretched situation. No theoretical checks, no form of government, can render us secure. To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea. If there be sufficient virtue and intelligence in the community, it will be exercised in the selection of these men; so that we do not depend on their virtue, or put confidence in our rulers, but in the people who are to choose them."
James Madison (speech at the Virginia Ratifying Convention, 20 June 1788) #Quote by James Madison
Sufficient quotes by Jean Tinguely
#84. Art is the distortion of an unendurable reality ... Art is correction, modification of a situation; art is communication, connection ... Art is social, self-sufficient, and total. #Quote by Jean Tinguely
Sufficient quotes by Cassandra Clare
#85. Alec pulled his knees up to his chest and looked thoughtfully at Jace. "I know," he said. "I'm not jealous. I always knew, from the first, that everyone thought you were better than me. My dad thought it. The Clave thought it. Izzy and Max looked up to you as the great warrior they wanted to be like. But the day you asked me to be your parabatai, I knew you meant that you trusted me enough to ask me to help you. You were telling me that you weren't this lone and self-sufficient warrior able to do everything alone. You needed me. So I realized that there was one person who didn't assume you were better than me. You. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Sufficient quotes by Edith Wharton
#86. Whether by this he meant the clergy I know not; though I observed he spoke favourably of that body in France, pointing out that, long before the recent agitations, they had defended the civil rights of the Third Estate, and citing many cases in which the country curates had shown themselves the truest friends of the people: a fact my own observation hath confirmed. I remarked to him that I was surprised to find how little talk there was in Italy of the distracted conditions in France; and this though the country is overrun with French refugees, or emigres, as they call themselves, who bring with them reports that might well excite the alarm of neighbouring governments. He said he had remarked the same indifference, but that this was consonant with the Italian character, which never looked to the morrow; and he added that the mild disposition of the people, and their profound respect for religion, were sufficient assurance against any political excess. To this I could not forbear #Quote by Edith Wharton
Sufficient quotes by Georgiana Cavendish
#87. So away goes reflection; and we are whirled away in the stream of dissipation, with the rest of the world. This seems a very sufficient reason for every thing we do, The rest of the world does so: that's quite enough. #Quote by Georgiana Cavendish
Sufficient quotes by Augustine Of Hippo
#88. Your good spirit moved over the waters. But he was not upheld by them as though he rested upon them, for when he is said to rest upon a man, it is he who gives that man rest in himself. It was your incorruptible and immutable will, which is sufficient in itself and to itself, that moved over the life which you had created. To that life living and living in happiness are not one and the same, because it lives even in its state of fluidity and darkness. To gain happiness it must still be turned from that state towards God, its Creator. It must live ever closer to the Fountain of life. In his light it must see the light; in him it must be given perfection, splendor, and bliss. #Quote by Augustine Of Hippo
Sufficient quotes by Samuel Wilson
#89. It is important to consider whether the sample size selected by the Environmental Genome Project will provide sufficient power to discover most alleles relevant to gene-environment interactions. #Quote by Samuel Wilson
Sufficient quotes by Gottlob Frege
#90. Having visual impressions is, of course, necessary for seeing things, but it is not sufficient. What must be added is not anything sensible. And it is precisely this that unlocks the outer world for us; for without this non-sensible something, each of us would remain locked up in his inner world. #Quote by Gottlob Frege
Sufficient quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#91. From *the form of time and of the single dimension* of the series of representations, on account of which the intellect, in order to take up one thing, must drop everything else, there follows not only the intellect's distraction, but also its *forgetfulness*. Most of what it has dropped it never takes up again, especially as the taking up again is bound to the principle of sufficient reason, and thus requires an occasion which the association of ideas and motivation have first to provide. Yet this occasion may be the remoter and the smaller, the more our susceptibility to it is enhanced by interest in the subject. But, as I have already shown in the essay *On the Principle of Sufficient Reason*, memory is not a receptacle, but a mere faculty, acquired by practice, of bringing forth any representations at random, so that these have always to be kept in practice by repetition, otherwise they are gradually lost. Accordingly, the knowledge even of the scholarly head exists only *virtualiter* as an acquired practice in producing certain representations. *Actualiter*, on the other hand, it is restricted to one particular representation, and for the moment is conscious of this one alone. Hence there results a strange contrast between what a man knows *potentia* and what he knows *actu*, in other words, between his knowledge and his thinking at any moment. The former is an immense and always somewhat chaotic mass, the latter a single, distinct thought. The relation is like that betw #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Sufficient quotes by Mike Bickle
#92. God's grace is sufficient when we come up short in our obedience, but it is important to call sin "sin" and declare war on it. Those who love God in truth will set their hearts to live in a spirit of obedience in every area of their lives - including their use of time, money, and words, and in what their eyes look at. #Quote by Mike Bickle
Sufficient quotes by Suzanne Eller
#93. Nothing here on earth is guaranteed," Melissa says, "except for one thing: Jesus is with us always. When I began to understand who He is, my doubts began to disappear. He is sufficient; He's enough. #Quote by Suzanne Eller
Sufficient quotes by James Madison
#94. Is there no virtue among us? If there be not, we are in a wretched situation. No theoretical checks-no form of government can render us secure. To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea, if there be sufficient virtue and intelligence in the community, it will be exercised in the selection of these men. So that we do not depend on their virtue, or put confidence in our rulers, but in the people who are to choose them. #Quote by James Madison
Sufficient quotes by Nicholas Carr
#95. The Net grants us instant access to a library of information unprecedented in its size and scope, and it makes it easy for us to sort through that library - to find, if not exactly what we were looking for, at least something sufficient for our immediate purposes. What the Net diminishes is Johnson's primary kind of knowledge: the ability to know, in depth, a subject for ourselves, to construct within our own minds the rich and idiosyncratic set of connections that give rise to a singular intelligence. #Quote by Nicholas Carr
Sufficient quotes by Roseanne Barr
#96. I'm a farmer now, and it's fantastic. My goal is to be totally self-sufficient and grow everything that I eat. There's something about earning your dinner that's cool. #Quote by Roseanne Barr
Sufficient quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#97. I was a little cross.I ask pardon. If I do get up a little temper I have no sufficient time to keep it up. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Sufficient quotes by F. Lee Bailey
#98. I get paid for seeing that my clients have every break the law allows. I have knowingly defended a number of guilty men. But the guilty never escape unscathed. My fees are sufficient punishment for anyone. #Quote by F. Lee Bailey
Sufficient quotes by G. Campbell Morgan
#99. No one statement wrested from its context is a sufficient warrant for actions that plainly controvert other commands. How excellent a thing it would be if the whole Church of Christ had learned that no law of life may be based upon an isolated text. Every false teacher who has divided the Church, has had, "it is written" on which to hang his doctrine. #Quote by G. Campbell Morgan
Sufficient quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#100. Of the various executive abilities, no one excited more anxious concern than that of placing the interests of our fellow-citizens in the hands of honest men, with understanding sufficient for their stations. No duty is at the same time more difficult to fulfil. The knowledge of character possessed by a single individual is of necessity limited. To seek out the best through the whole Union, we must resort to the information which from the best of men, acting disinterestedly and with the purest motives, is sometimes incorrect. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Sufficient quotes by Charles Peguy
#101. We said that a single injustice, a single crime, a single illegality, particularly if it is officially recorded, confirmed, a single wrong to humanity, a single wrong to justice and to right, particularly if it is universally, legally, nationally, commodiously accepted, that a single crime shatters and is sufficient to shatter the whole social pact, the whole social contract, that a single legal crime, a single dishonorable act will bring about the loss of ones honor, the dishonor of a whole people. It is a touch of gangrene that corrupts the entire body. #Quote by Charles Peguy
Sufficient quotes by Hannah Arendt
#102. there is no class that cannot be wiped out if a sufficient number of its members are murdered. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Sufficient quotes by Jen Pollock Michel
#103. Part of the practice of modest faith, in times of suffering, is relinquishing our right to answers. God has never promised to explain himself, but he has promised to stay near. I will never leave, he says; I will never forsake. I am the friend that sticks closer than your brother. Do not think me unmoved by your grief. These are the faithful assurances of God as we have them in Scripture, and here is even more hope available to those willing to search it out. But let's not be fooled to think that God has promised things like: it will get better, you'll soon see the purpose behind this pain, there's never more than you can handle. Often it does get better; often we do see purpose; always there is sufficient grace. But lament must practice the modest faith of finding sufficient that which God provides, even if, in seasons of great sorrow, it may not seem like enough." … #Quote by Jen Pollock Michel
Sufficient quotes by Athanasius Of Alexandria
#104. So purity of soul is sufficient of itself to reflect God, as the Lord also says, "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. #Quote by Athanasius Of Alexandria
Sufficient quotes by Rona Jaffe
#105. She had a collection of matchbooks from extravagant places, dropped here and there on tables in the dingy apartment she still shared with Gregg. They made it look as if she lived a gay, mad life. What a typical picture for anyone from out of New York: career girl's apartment, stockings drying over the shower rod, clothes flung helter-skelter in the rush to get to the office on time, to a date on time, a bottle of wine there too, wads of dust lying under the studio couch because you couldn't clean except weekends and sometimes not even then, and all those brightly colored matchbooks with names of well-known eating places, so that even if one managed only two good and sufficient meals a week one could still light one's cigarettes for the rest of the week with the memory. #Quote by Rona Jaffe
Sufficient quotes by Toni Sorenson
#106. The world teaches us to be self-sufficient, self-reliant, self-motivating. But anytime we put self before Savior, we're in trouble #Quote by Toni Sorenson
Sufficient quotes by Oliver Goldsmith
#107. What real good does an addition to a fortune already sufficient procure? Not any. Could the great man, by having his fortune increased, increase also his appetites, then precedence might be attended with real amusement. #Quote by Oliver Goldsmith
Sufficient quotes by Orson Scott Card
#108. The Buggers have finally, finally learned that we humans value each and every individual human life ... But they've learned this lesson just in time for it to be hopelessly wrong - for we humans do, when the cause is sufficient, spend our own lives. We throw ourselves onto the grenade to save our buddies in the foxhole. We rise out of the trenches and charge the entrenched enemy and die like maggots under a blowtorch. We strap bombs on our bodies and blow ourselves up in the midst of our enemies. We are, when the cause is sufficient, insane. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Sufficient quotes by Jerry Bridges
#109. Our situation was so desperate that only the death of His own Son on a cruel and shameful cross was sufficient to resolve the problem. #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Sufficient quotes by L.M. Montgomery

Sufficient quotes by Daniel Kahneman
#111. Whether professionals have a chance to develop intuitive expertise depends essentially on the quality and speed of feedback, as well as on sufficient opportunity to practice. #Quote by Daniel Kahneman
Sufficient quotes by Steve Largent
#112. People say, 'I'm for job training. We can train people to increase the likelihood that they can be self-sufficient.' Okay, that's great, you're for job training - I like job training - but do you think the federal government should have 163 different job-training programs? #Quote by Steve Largent
Sufficient quotes by Emil M. Cioran
#113. If, as Moses Mendelssohn maintains, Judaism is not a religion but a revealed legislation, it seems strange that such a God should be its author and symbol. He who has, precisely, nothing of the legislator about Him. Incapable of the slightest effort of objectivity, He dispenses justice according to His whim, without any code to limit His divagations and His impulses. He is a despot as jittery as He is aggressive, saturated with complexes, an ideal subject for psychoanalysis. He disarms metaphysics, which detects in Him no trace of a substantial, self-sufficient Being superior to the world and content with the interval that separates Him from it. A clown who has inherited heaven and who there perpetuates the wost traditions of earth, he employes means, astounded by His own power and proud of having made its effects felt. Yet His vehemence, His shifts of mood, His spasmodic outbursts finally attract, if they do not convince us. Not at all resigned to His eternity, He intervenes in the affairs of earth, makes a mess of them, sowing confusion and clutter. He disconcerts, irritates, seduces. #Quote by Emil M. Cioran
Sufficient quotes by Allen Newell
#114. The Physical Symbol System Hypothesis. A physical symbol system has the necessary and sufficient means for general intelligent action. #Quote by Allen Newell
Sufficient quotes by Michelangelo
#115. It is not sufficient merely to be a great master in painting and very wise, but I think that it is necessary for the painter to be very moral in his mode of life, or even, if such were possible, a saint, so that the Holy Spirit may inspire his intellect. #Quote by Michelangelo
Sufficient quotes by Euginia Herlihy
#116. Thank you Father for another day, for another week, for another month and for another year. Your grace is sufficient for me. #Quote by Euginia Herlihy
Sufficient quotes by Deborah Brodie
#117. The paths that lead to the crossroads of life; otherwise known as "transition", seem the longest, and darkest. This is a result of the tension present between struggle and grace. The more you resist, the more anxiety and stress you will encounter. Whereas, when you let go of the expectation of where you should be, or want to be, and accept the current situation, event, or circumstance, to merely exist, you will experience God's sufficient Grace. #Quote by Deborah Brodie
Sufficient quotes by Arthur Koestler
#118. But the history of science teaches that most discoveries were made by several people independently from each other, at more or less the same time; and this fact alone (apart from all other considerations) is sufficient to show that when the time is ripe for a given type of invention or discovery, the favourable chance event which sparks it off is bound to occur sooner or later. #Quote by Arthur Koestler
Sufficient quotes by Michael Faraday
#119. I can at any moment convert my time into money, but I do not require more of the latter than is sufficient for necessary purposes. #Quote by Michael Faraday
Sufficient quotes by Philip Graham Ryken
#120. The cross of Christ is the all-sufficient ground for the salvation of sinners. It claims to be sturdy enough to support the whole weight of our guilt all by itself. Therefore, to boast in the cross properly at all is to boast in the cross alone. #Quote by Philip Graham Ryken
Sufficient quotes by David Hume
#121. No testimony is sufficient to establish a miracle, unless the testimony be of such a kind, that its falsehood would be more miraculous, than the fact, which it endeavors to establish. #Quote by David Hume
Sufficient quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#122. This little man was of the order of beings who must not be opposed, unless you possessed an all-dominant force sufficient to crush him at once. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Sufficient quotes by Tom Perrotta
#123. As if adult males were completely self-sufficient beings, as if a penis and a five o'clock shadow were all they would ever need to get by. #Quote by Tom Perrotta
Sufficient quotes by Canvass White
#124. To every bushel of the powdered cement add one bushel of sand, mix them together and pass them through a sieve, then add a sufficient quantity of water to make it (by well mixing and working) about the consistency of a soft putty. It is then fit to use but should not be kept more than six or eight hours and should be thoroughly worked just before it is used. #Quote by Canvass White
Sufficient quotes by James Weldon Johnson
#125. The battle was first waged over the right of the Negro to be classed as a human being with a soul; later, as to whether he had sufficient intellect to master even the rudiments of learning; and today it is being fought out over his social recognition. #Quote by James Weldon Johnson

#126. When will I have sufficient leisure/wealth to sit on hay-bale watching moon rise, while in luxurious mansion family sleeps? At that time, will have chance to reflect deeply on meaning of life etc., etc. Have a feeling and have always had a feeling that this and other good things will happen for us! #Quote by Anonymous
Sufficient quotes by Napoleon Hill
#127. The majority of people who fail to accumulate money sufficient for their needs are, generally, easily influenced by the opinion of others. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Sufficient quotes by Richard Rothstein
#128. De facto segregation, we tell ourselves, has various causes. when African Americans moved into a neighborhood like Ferguson, a few racially prejudiced white families decided to leave, and then as the number of black families grew, the neighborhood deteriorated, and "white flight" followed. Real estate agents steered whites away from black neighborhoods, and blacks away from white ones. Banks discriminated with "redlining," refusing to give mortgages to African Americans or extracting unusually severe terms from them with subprime loans. African Americans haven't generally gotten the educations that would enable them to earn sufficient incomes to live in white suburbs, and, as a result, many remain concentrated in urban neighborhoods. Besides, black families prefer to live with one another.

All this has some truth, but it remains a small part of the truth, submerged by a far more important one: until the last quarter of the twentieth century, racially explicit policies of federal, state, and local governments defined where whites and African Americans should live. Today's residential segregation in the North, South, Midwest, and West is not the unintended consequence of individual choices and of otherwise well-meaning law or regulation but of unhidden public policy that explicitly segregated every metropolitan area in the United States. The policy was so systematic and forceful that its effects endure to the present time. Without our government's purposeful impositi #Quote by Richard Rothstein
Sufficient quotes by Gregory Harrison
#129. I love to sing and I do think that my strength as a singer is ... I think I have a voice that is certainly sufficient under most any circumstances ... but I think my strength is that I really am an actor and I really do have to own what I am saying. #Quote by Gregory Harrison
Sufficient quotes by Liane Holliday Willey
#130. If we are only interested in changing the AS person so that they can better meld themselves into society - a tenuous and nebulous concept to begin with - then perhaps we are misguided. The AS community gives us much cause to celebrate. Never, I think, should we expect or want them to be carbon copies of the most socially adept among us. We should only suggest whatever help they need to insure they have every opportunity of leading productive, rewarding and self-sufficient lives. We would lose too much and they would lose even more, if our goals were anything more, or less. #Quote by Liane Holliday Willey
Sufficient quotes by Keith Olbermann
#131. Your anger will cool into hardened passionate insight if you wait a day. Most of the things that make me angry I let them sit. The heat that remains will be sufficient. The stuff that evaporates is the stuff that would have simply offended or made it histrionic. #Quote by Keith Olbermann
Sufficient quotes by Andre Maurois
#132. To be witty is not enough. One must possess sufficient wit to avoid having too much of it. #Quote by Andre Maurois
Sufficient quotes by International Monetary Fund
#133. The mere existence of sanctions is not sufficient to ensure compliance. If no attention is paid to supervision, there is a risk that sectors that resist the requirements will not comply with them or will comply less thoroughly than they should. Regular and thorough supervision enhances compliance. #Quote by International Monetary Fund
Sufficient quotes by Bernard Cornwell
#134. Then, just as d'Alembord was about to sell his commission and retire to one of his prospective father-in-law's farms, Napoleon had returned to France. Colonel Ford, worried that he was losing his veteran Captain of skirmishers, had begged d'Alembord to stay for the impending campaign and implicit in the Colonel's plea was a promise that d'Alembord would receive the next vacant majority in the battalion. That enticement was sufficient. The captaincy would sell for fifteen hundred pounds which was a good enough fortune for any young man contemplating marriage, but a majority would fetch two thousand six hundred pounds, and so d'Alembord, with some misgivings, but reassured by the prospects of a fine marriage portion, had agreed to Ford's request. #Quote by Bernard Cornwell
Sufficient quotes by Samuel Butler
#135. I said to him one day that the very slender reward which God had attached to the pursuit of serious inquiry was a sufficient proof that He disapproved of it, or at any rate that he did not set much store by it nor wish to encourage it. #Quote by Samuel Butler
Sufficient quotes by Bien Sufficient

Sufficient quotes by Anna Quindlen
#138. I never think about issues when I'm working on a novel. Issues are things that happen to people in sufficient numbers to elicit widespread attention; in other words, they're just life happening. That's what I think about: life, and telling a story. #Quote by Anna Quindlen
Sufficient quotes by Mark Lawrence

Sufficient quotes by Archibald Marwizi
#142. The trusted quality and power of the believed sponsor of your words will have a big impact on the power released in and through your words. You should have sufficient sponsorship to counter the kind of words you do not want to influence your life, thoughts and mission. Contrary words and convincing voices will encounter you on the route to your destiny and they need to be countered with strong conviction and authority. #Quote by Archibald Marwizi
Sufficient quotes by Lorraine Toussaint

Sufficient quotes by Phil Harding
#146. Like our finances, humankind is living with a growing ecological deficit but the solution is different. The deficit will worsen with dangerous consequences unless we address population growth sooner rather than later. Efficiency improvements, increased use of renewable resources and less waste in themselves are no longer sufficient to put us back into credit #Quote by Phil Harding
Sufficient quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#147. For the first billion years, the universe continued to expand and cool as matter gravitated into the massive concentrations we call galaxies. Nearly a hundred billion of them formed, each containing hundreds of billions of stars that undergo thermonuclear fusion in their cores. Those stars with more than about ten times the mass of the Sun achieve sufficient pressure and temperature in their cores to manufacture dozens of elements heavier than hydrogen, including those that compose planets and whatever life may thrive upon them. These elements would be stunningly useless were they to remain where they formed. But high-mass stars fortuitously explode, scattering their chemically enriched guts throughout the galaxy. After nine billion years of such enrichment, in an undistinguished part of the universe (the outskirts of the Virgo Supercluster) in an undistinguished galaxy (the Milky Way) in an undistinguished region (the Orion Arm), an undistinguished star (the Sun) was born.

Sufficient quotes by Sam Harris
#150. Grievances are not in themselves sufficient to radicalize somebody. They are half the truth. My meaning is best summarized this way: when we in the West failed to intervene in the Bosnian genocide, some Muslims became radicalized; when we did intervene in Afghanistan and Iraq, more Muslims became radicalized; when we failed to intervene in Syria, many more Muslims became radicalized. The grievance narrative that pins the blame on foreign policy is only half the story. It is insufficient as an explanation for radicalization. #Quote by Sam Harris
Sufficient quotes by John Andreas Widtsoe
#151. We are aware that the order of God requires the exercise of humility, but not of servility of slaves; but a humility that can be associated with undoubted courage and unflinching integrity; at the same time there is no room for pride, self-sufficient pride, that rests solely upon its own capabilities, and refuses to look for the support and countenance of others.
MS 7:91 [MS is the Millenial Star] #Quote by John Andreas Widtsoe
Sufficient quotes by Bhakti Tirtha Swami
#152. It is dangerous for a spiritual master to accept almost any aspirant. Although it is an aspect of mercy, it is dangerous. The danger also depends on the spiritual potency of the particular guru. Without sufficient potency, a few offensive or faithless disciples can lead to the guru's fall. #Quote by Bhakti Tirtha Swami
Sufficient quotes by Sigmund Freud
#153. I must confess that I am not at all partial to the fabrication of Weltanschauungen. Such activities may be left to philosophers, who avowedly find it impossible to make their journey through life without a Baedeker of that kind to give them information on every subject. Let us humbly accept the contempt with which they look down on us from the vatnage-ground of their superior needs. But since we cannot forgot our narcissistic pride either, we will draw comfort from the reflection that such 'Handbooks to Life' soon grow out of date and that it is precisely our short-sighted, narrow, and finicky work which obliges them to appear in new editions, and that even the most up-to-date of them are nothing but attempts to find a substitute for the ancient, useful and all-sufficient Church Catechism. We know well enough how little light science has so far been able to throw on the problems that surround us. But however much ado the philosophers may make, they cannot alter the situation. Only patient, persevering research, in which everything is subordinated to the one requirement of certainty, can gradually bring about a change. The benighted traveller may sing aloud in the dark to deny his own fears; but, for all that, he will not see an inch further beyond his nose. #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Sufficient quotes by Ron Paul
#154. Those individuals who refuse to join in the lies supporting the war are condemned as being unpatriotic, ill-informed, or friends of the enemy. If the propaganda doesn't silence them and they are seen as a sufficient threat to the war machine, the government will enact laws granting power to arrest and punish those refusing to succumb to the propaganda. This will be done not only to punish the direct targets. It will also be done to frighten others who may be considering boldly challenging the authoritarians supporting a war that will only benefit the special interests. #Quote by Ron Paul
Sufficient quotes by Michel Foucault
#155. As for what motivated me, it is quite simple; I would hope that in the eyes of some people it might be sufficient in itself. It was curiosity – the only kind of curiosity, in any case, that is worth acting upon with a degree of obstinacy: not the curiosity that seeks to assimilate what it is proper for one to know, but that which enables one to get free of oneself. After all, what would be the value of the passion for knowledge if it resulted only in a certain amount of knowledgeableness and not, in one way or another and to the extent possible, in the knower's straying afield of himself? There are times in life when the question of knowing if one can think differently that one thinks, and perceive differently than one sees, is absolutely necessary if one is to go on looking and reflecting at all. People will say, perhaps, that these games with oneself would better be left backstage; or, at best, that they might properly form part of those preliminary exercises that are forgotten once they have served their purpose. But, then, what is philosophy today – philosophical activity, I mean – if it is not the critical work that thought brings to bear on itself? In what does it consist, if not in the endeavour to know how and to what extent it might be possible to think differently, instead of legitimating what is already known? #Quote by Michel Foucault
Sufficient quotes by Sir Henry Roy Forbes Harrod

Sufficient quotes by Howard Zinn

Sufficient quotes by Gamaliel Bailey

Sufficient quotes by Fazlur Rahman
#159. People belittle or ignore or even rebel against God, because they view the
processes of nature as having self-sufficient causes, normally regarded by them as
ultimate. They do not realize that the universe is a sign pointing to something
"beyond" itself, something without which the universe, with all its natural causes,
would be and could be nothing. #Quote by Fazlur Rahman
Sufficient quotes by Hayao Miyazaki
#160. Many of my movies have strong female leads- brave, self-sufficient girls that don't think twice about fighting for what they believe with all their heart. They'll need a friend, or a supporter, but never a savior. Any woman is just as capable of being a hero as any man. #Quote by Hayao Miyazaki
Sufficient quotes by Ruth Chou Simons
#161. Jesus' character--as our refuge, as trustworthy, as sufficient, as ever present, as wise, as merciful, as in control, and as sovereign Lord--breaks through the harsh cold of the season as He steps in to carry our burdens, reminding us that true rest comes when we rest in Him. #Quote by Ruth Chou Simons
Sufficient quotes by Anthony Doerr

Sufficient quotes by Elizabeth David
#163. The grotesque prudishness and archness with which garlic is treated in [England] has led to the superstition that rubbing the bowl with it before putting the salad in gives sufficient flavor. It rather depends whether you are going to eat the bowl or the salad. #Quote by Elizabeth David

Sufficient quotes by Barack Obama
#165. It was Jefferson, not some liberal judge in the sixties, who called for a wall between church and state - and if we have declined to heed Jefferson's advice to engage in a revolution every two or three generations, it's only because the Constitution itself proved a sufficient defense against tyranny. #Quote by Barack Obama
Sufficient quotes by E. M. Forster
#166. It never bored them to hear words, words; they breathed them with the cool night air, never stopping to analyse; the name of the poet, Hafiz, Hali, Iqbal, was sufficient guarantee. India - a hundred Indias - whispered outside beneath the indifferent moon, but for the time India seemed one and their own, and they regained their departed greatness by hearing its departure lamented, they felt young again because reminded that youth must fly. #Quote by E. M. Forster
Sufficient quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Sufficient quotes by Keith Devlin
#169. What makes it possible to learn advanced math fairly quickly is that the human brain is capable of learning to follow a given set of rules without understanding them, and apply them in an intelligent and useful fashion. Given sufficient practice, the brain eventually discovers (or creates) meaning in what began as a meaningless game. #Quote by Keith Devlin

Sufficient quotes by William Howard Taft
#171. We should have an army so organized and so officered as to be capable in time of emergency, in cooperation with the National Militia, and under the provision of a proper national volunteer law, rapidly to expand into a force sufficient to resist all probable invasion from abroad and to furnish a respectable expeditionary force if necessary in the maintenance of our traditional American policy which bears the name of President Monroe. #Quote by William Howard Taft
Sufficient quotes by George Washington
#172. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one, and thus to create whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of power, and proneness to abuse it, which predominates in the human heart is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position. #Quote by George Washington
Sufficient quotes by Mark Lawrence

Sufficient quotes by David Mixner
#174. Getting a traditional pharmaceutical to the market can cost a billion dollars or more. Newer, more tailored and targeted drugs called biologics are even more complex and expensive. Simple economics dictates that companies and venture funds will invest more in products that can generate a sufficient return. #Quote by David Mixner
Sufficient quotes by Timothy I. Thomas
#175. What these highly qualified individuals often do not have is sufficient experience in leading others to achieve demanding goals. Yes, they themselves are star performers. Yes, they have worked with others throughout their careers. But performing a task while working with people is vastly different from leading people effectively day by day. We have observed that star performers often race ahead of the people problems they leave in their wake, until they reach a point where their continued success depends on leadership skills they do not possess. #Quote by Timothy I. Thomas
Sufficient quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#176. All human life, we may say, consists solely of these two activities: (1) bringing one's activities into harmony with conscience, or (2) hiding from oneself the indications of conscience in order to be able to continue to live as before.

Some do the first, others the second. To attain the first there is but one means: moral enlightenment - the increase of light in oneself and attention to what it shows. To attain the second - to hide from oneself the indications of conscience - there are two means: one external and the other internal. The external means consists in occupations that divert one's attention from the indications given by conscience; the internal method consists in darkening conscience itself.

As a man has two ways of avoiding seeing an object that is before him: either by diverting his sight to other more striking objects, or by obstructing the sight of his own eyes - just so a man can hide from himself the indications of conscience in two ways: either by the external method of diverting his attention to various occupations, cares, amusements, or games; or by the internal method of obstructing the organ of attention itself. For people of dull, limited moral feeling, the external diversions are often quite sufficient to enable them not to perceive the indications conscience gives of the wrongness of their lives. But for morally sensitive people those means are often insufficient.

The external means do not quite divert attention #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Sufficient quotes by Pope Pius XI
#177. A man had better study what a human being is, because he's marrying one - assuming that merely being one has not been sufficient stimulus to that study. #Quote by Pope Pius XI

#178. A criminal is a person with predatory instincts who has not sufficient capital to form a corporation.Most government is by the rich for the rich. Government comprises a large part of the organized injustice in any society, ancient or modern.Civil government, insofar as it is instituted for the security of property, is in reality instituted for the defence of the rich against the poor, and for the defence of those who have property against those who have none. #Quote by Adam Smith
Sufficient quotes by Plautus
#179. Even the whole of life is not sufficient for thorough learning. #Quote by Plautus
Sufficient quotes by Austin O'Malley
#180. That a mouse of scandal whisks its foolish tail across the church's floor is not sufficient cause for clamorous leaping out of its windows. #Quote by Austin O'Malley

Sufficient quotes by Beth Clark
#183. His grace to overlook my silliness in thinking that I knew what to do and bless me with what He knew was best anyway. He promised that His grace was sufficient, that His grace would be enough... #Quote by Beth Clark
Sufficient quotes by David Bentley Hart
#184. The very notion of nature as a closed system entirely sufficient to itself is plainly one that cannot be verified, deductively or empirically, from within the system of nature. It is a metaphysical (which is to say "extra-natural") conclusion regarding the whole of reality, which neither reason nor experience legitimately warrants. #Quote by David Bentley Hart
Sufficient quotes by Arthur Stanley Eddington
#185. A star is drawing on some vast reservoir of energy by means unknown to us. This reservoir can scarcely be other than the subatomic energy which, it is known exists abundantly in all matter; we sometimes dream that man will one day learn how to release it and use it for his service. The store is well nigh inexhaustible, if only it could be tapped. There is sufficient in the Sun to maintain its output of heat for 15 billion years. #Quote by Arthur Stanley Eddington
Sufficient quotes by James L. Farrell
#186. First, Christ took upon his own head the sins of those who have wronged us. Second, because of this, he stands between us and those whom we think have wronged us, asking us to realize that the atonement is sufficient for those sins and to therefore repent of our grudges and give up our enmity. And finally, if we forgive, the atonement fills us with what we have lacked and either washes away our pain, or sustains us in it. #Quote by James L. Farrell
Sufficient quotes by John Flavel
#187. Jesus Christ is in every way sufficient to the vast desires of the soul. #Quote by John Flavel
Sufficient quotes by Michael Pollan
#188. Wrangham cites several studies indicating that in fact humans don't do well on raw food: they can't maintain their body weight, and half of the women on a raw-food regimen stop menstruating. Devotees of raw food rely heavily on juicers and blenders, because otherwise they would have to spend as much time chewing as the chimps do. It is difficult, if not impossible, to extract sufficient energy from unprocessed plant matter to power a body with such a big, hungry brain. #Quote by Michael Pollan
Sufficient quotes by Lepel H. Griffin
#189. ...if we accept contemporary literature as sufficient evidence, the society of Paris today is fully as corrupt as that of the Punjab in 1830; and the bazaars of Lahore, while Ranjit Singh was celebrating the festival of the Holi,
were not so shameless as Piccadilly at night in 1892. #Quote by Lepel H. Griffin
Sufficient quotes by Chanel Miller
#190. In his testimony, I heard the familiar expectation that the victim be flawless in order to be worthy of life. The audacity to smoke marijuana, provided sufficient reason to die. The defence calling me a 'party animal', that, too, I deserved to be raped. #Quote by Chanel Miller
Sufficient quotes by George Eliot
#191. Minds fettered by this doctrine no longer inquire concerning a proposition whether it is attested by sufficient evidence, but whether it accords with Scripture; they do not search for facts as such, but for facts that will bear out their doctrine. It is easy to see that this mental habit blunts not only the perception of truth, but the sense of truthfulness, and that the man whose faith drives him into fallacies treads close upon the precipice of falsehood. #Quote by George Eliot
Sufficient quotes by Larry Wall
#192. The camel has evolved to be relatively self-sufficient. On the other hand, the camel has not evolved to smell good. Neither has Perl. #Quote by Larry Wall
Sufficient quotes by Charles C. Ryrie
#193. A new Christian cannot be called spiritual, simply because he has not had sufficient time to grow and develop in Christian knowledge and experience. #Quote by Charles C. Ryrie
Sufficient quotes by Robert G. Ingersoll
#194. In a new country a man must possess at least three virtues - honesty, courage and generosity. In cultivated society, cultivation is often more important than soil. A well-executed counterfeit passes more readily than a blurred genuine. It is necessary only to observe the unwritten laws of society - to be honest enough to keep out of prison, and generous enough to subscribe in public - where the subscription can be defended as an investment. In a new country, character is essential; in the old, reputation is sufficient. In the new, they find what a man really is; in the old, he generally passes for what he resembles. People separated only by distance are much nearer together, than those divided by the walls of caste. #Quote by Robert G. Ingersoll
Sufficient quotes by Alexis Carrel
#195. Modern civilization seems to be incapable of producing people endowed with imagination, intelligence, and courage. In practically every country there is a decrease in the intellectual and moral caliber of those who carry the responsibility of public affairs. The financial, industrial, and commercial organizations have reached a gigantic size. They are influenced not only by the conditions of the country where they are established, but also by the state of the neighboring countries and of the entire world. In all nations, economic and social conditions undergo extremely rapid changes. Nearly everywhere the existing form of government is again under discussion. The great democracies find themselves face to face with formidable problems--problems concerning their very existence and demanding an immediate solution. And we realize that, despite the immense hopes which humanity has placed in modern civilization, such a civilization has failed in developing men of sufficient intelligence and audacity to guide it along the dangerous road on which it is stumbling. Human beings have not grown so rapidly as the institutions sprung from their brains. It is chiefly the intellectual and moral deficiencies of the political leaders, and their ignorance, which endanger modern nations. #Quote by Alexis Carrel
Sufficient quotes by Primo Levi
#196. The future of humanity is uncertain, even in
the most prosperous countries, and the quality
of life deteriorates; and yet I believe that what
is being discovered about the infinitely large
and infinitely small is sufficient to absolve this
end of the century and millennium. What a very
few are acquiring in knowledge of the physical
world will perhaps cause this period not to be
judged as a pure return of barbarism. #Quote by Primo Levi
Sufficient quotes by Suzanne Curchod
#197. Our own cast-off sorrows are not sufficient to constitute sympathy for others. #Quote by Suzanne Curchod
Sufficient quotes by Lauren   James
#198. Love take so much energy, and it just leads to pain. I think it's probably best for people to be self-sufficient. If I was strong enough to be independent, then I wouldn't be so desperately lonely. I'm sure of it, #Quote by Lauren James
Sufficient quotes by Rose George
#199. long. Trade has always traveled and the world has always traded. Ours, though, is the era of extreme interdependence. Hardly any nation is now self-sufficient. In 2011, the United Kingdom shipped in half of its gas. The United States relies on ships to bring in two-thirds of its oil supplies. Every day, thirty-eight million tons of crude oil sets off by sea somewhere, although you may not notice it. As in Los Angeles, New York, and other port cities, London has moved its working docks out of the city, away from residents. Ships are bigger now and need deeper harbors, so they call at Newark or Tilbury or Felixstowe, not Liverpool or South Street. #Quote by Rose George
Sufficient quotes by Tariq Ali
#200. The Executive Committee of the People's Will had scored it's biggest success on 1 March 1881 by assassinating Alexander II, but also its biggest failure. (...) The aim of terror was to rouse the people from their torpor and trigger a mass uprising based on previous models (Razin/Pugatchev), but this time under new conditions and in order to completely destroy the autocracy and its institutions. It never worked out and, in a grumpy mood, Lenin once characterised terrorists as liberals with bombs, suggesting that both held the opinion that propaganda alone, of deed or word, would be sufficient for the task that lay ahead. For the most part terrorist acts scared people and legitimised government repression. #Quote by Tariq Ali
