Thirds quotes by Holly Goldberg Sloan
#1. Dysphagia is the medical term for not being able to swallow, and I know that there are two kinds of dysphagia: oropharyngeal and esophageal.
But maybe there is also a third kind of dysphagia that comes when your heart breaks into pieces.
I can't swallow because I have that kind. #Quote by Holly Goldberg Sloan

#5. THE TRUTH ABOUT PUBLIC SCHOOL EDUCATION • American fifteen-year-olds rank thirty-fifth out of fifty-seven developed countries in math and literacy. • 30 percent of public school students don't graduate from high school. • Every day, 7,000 kids drop out of high school. • Of the 50 million children currently in public school, 15 million of them will drop out. • 25 percent of all public school math teachers did not major in mathematics or a math-related subject at a college or university. • Less than two-thirds of high school graduates are accepted to college every year. • One half... #Quote by Frank Luntz

Thirds quotes by Kim Harrison
#7. Jenks enthusiastically leaned against the counter and opened the box. Bypassing the plastic knife, he broke off about a third of it and took a huge bite. Ivy watched, appalled, and I shrugged. His mouth moving as he hummed, Jenks finished unpacking the sacks. I was half dead, Ivy was whoring herself to keep me safe, but Jenks was okay as long as he had chocolate. #Quote by Kim Harrison
Thirds quotes by James Joyce
#8. What birds were they? ( ... ) He listened to the cries: like the squeak of mice be-
hind the wainscot : a shrill twofold note. But the notes
were long and shrill and whirring, unlike the cry of
vermin, falling a third or a fourth and trilled as the
flying beaks clove the air. Their cry was shrill and
clear and fine and falling like threads of silken light
unwound from whirring spools. #Quote by James Joyce
Thirds quotes by Edwin Powell Hubble
#9. I knew that even if I were second or third rate, it was astronomy that mattered. #Quote by Edwin Powell Hubble

Thirds quotes by Terry McMillan
#11. I love writing in first person more than third. I have to basically suspend my own world. I don't exist. I'm just a conduit. So I can be eight years old. I can be the mother of a kid that you find out certain things I'm not going to say. #Quote by Terry McMillan
Thirds quotes by Jose Mourinho
#12. There is no pressure at the top. The pressure is being second or third. #Quote by Jose Mourinho
Thirds quotes by John McWhorter
#13. Every third person in the world is a drama queen. And crying 'victim,' especially when you're not really a victim in any real way, feels good. It feels good to cry victim if you're not one. #Quote by John McWhorter
Thirds quotes by Mark Twain
#14. The observance of Thanksgiving Day-as a function-has become general of late years. The Thankfulness is not so general. This is natural. Two-thirds of the nation have always had hard luck and a hard time during the year, and this has a calming effect upon their enthusiasm. #Quote by Mark Twain
Thirds quotes by Robert Earl Keen
#15. And I thought to myself, 'I haven't had a Schlitz since the third grade! #Quote by Robert Earl Keen

Thirds quotes by Carl Wilhelm Scheele
#17. I took a glass retort, capable of containing eight ounces of water, and distilled fuming spirit of nitre according to the usual method. In the beginning the acid passed over red, then it became colourless, and lastly again all red: no sooner did this happen, then I took away the receiver; and tied to the mouth of the retort a bladder emptied of air, which I had moistened in its inside with milk of lime lac calcis, (i.e. lime-water, containing more quicklime than water can dissolve) to prevent its being corroded by the acid. Then I continued the distillation, and the bladder gradually expanded. Here-upon I left every thing to cool, tied up the bladder, and took it off from the mouth of the retort. - I filled a ten-ounce glass with this air and put a small burning candle into it; when immediately the candle burnt with a large flame, of so vivid a light that it dazzled the eyes. I mixed one part of this air with three parts of air, wherein fire would not burn; and this mixture afforded air, in every respect familiar to the common sort. Since this air is absolutely necessary for the generation of fire, and makes about one-third of our common air, I shall henceforth, for shortness sake call it empyreal air, [literally fire-air] the air which is unserviceable for the fiery phenomenon, and which makes abut two-thirds of common air, I shall for the future call foul air [literally corrupted air]. #Quote by Carl Wilhelm Scheele
Thirds quotes by Jeb Bush
#18. I'm for higher standards measured in an intellectually honest way, with abundant school choice, ending social promotion. And I know how to do this because as governor of the state of Florida I created the first statewide voucher program in the country, the second statewide voucher program, in the country and the third statewide voucher program in the country. #Quote by Jeb Bush
Thirds quotes by Tina Turner
#19. On the third day in India, I realized people were not suffering as much as I thought. #Quote by Tina Turner
Thirds quotes by R. Buckminster Fuller
#20. Our beds are empty two-thirds of the time. Our living rooms are empty seven-eighths of the time. Our office buildings are empty one-half of the time. It's time we gave this some thought. #Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller
Thirds quotes by Gloria Naylor
#21. In a contest between new technology and old ways of life, it is the traditional rhythms that will hold. Traditional societies make up more than two-thirds of the world, the two-thirds that will not be going online to "save" time but will remain wedded to the knowledge that if the bus doesn't come that day, it will come someday. After all, there is nothing but time. #Quote by Gloria Naylor
Thirds quotes by J.K. Rowling
#22. He could tell at once that they carried different sorts of bubble bath mixed with the water though it wasn't bubble bath as Harry had ever experienced. One tap gushed pink and blue bubbles the size of footballs; another poured ice-white foam so thick that Harry thought it would have supported his weight if he'd cared to test it; a third sent heavily perfumed purple clouds hovering over the surface of the water. Harry amused himself for a while turning the taps on and off, particularly enjoying the effect of one whose jet bounced off the surface of the water in large arcs. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Thirds quotes by Douglas Coupland
#23. A few years ago it dawned on me that everybody past a certain age ... pretty much constantly dreams of being able to escape from their lives. They don't want to be who they are any more. They want out. This list includes Thurston Howell the Third, Ann-Margret, the cat members of Rent, Václav Havel, space shuttle astronauts and Snuffleupagus. It's universal. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Thirds quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#24. One of the objects of a newspaper is to understand popular feeling and to give expression to it; another is to arouse among the people certain desirable sentiments; and the third is fearlessly to expose popular defects. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Thirds quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#25. We may say, for instance, that nearly two-thirds of them cannot read or write. This but partially expresses the fact. They are ignorant of the world about them, of modern economic organization, of the function of government, of individual worth and possibilities, - of nearly all those things which slavery in self-defence had to keep them from learning. #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
Thirds quotes by James Toback
#26. Most of my movies get about a third raves, a third vicious attacks, and a third in-between. #Quote by James Toback
Thirds quotes by Mike Shanahan

Thirds quotes by Gautama Buddha
#28. First, rely on the spirit and meaning of the teachings, not on the words;
Second, rely on the teachings, not on the personality of the teacher;
Third, rely on real wisdom, not superficial interpretation;
And fourth, rely on the essence of your pure Wisdom Mind, not on judgmental perceptions. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Thirds quotes by Chris Cleave
#29. I'm telling you, trouble is like the ocean. It covers two thirds of the world. #Quote by Chris Cleave
Thirds quotes by Paulo Coelho

Thirds quotes by Laverne Cox
#31. My third grade teacher called my mother and said, 'Ms. Cox, your son is going to end up in New Orleans in a dress if we don't get him into therapy.' And wouldn't you know, just last week I spoke at Tulane University, and I wore a lovely green and black dress. #Quote by Laverne Cox
Thirds quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#32. There were three classes of inhabitants who either frequent or inhabit the country which we had now entered: first, the loggers, who, for a part of the year, the winter and spring, are far the most numerous, but in the summer, except for a few explorers for timber, completely desert it; second, the few settlers I have named, the only permanent inhabitants, who live on the verge of it, and help raise supplies for the former; third, the hunters, mostly Indians, who range over it in their season. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Thirds quotes by Rosemary Clement-Moore
#33. [W]hen Ben was kissing me, the whole world retreated. I felt things I'd never felt before, in places I never knew were connected.
But I was pretty sure that whatever was buzzing against my thigh was not normal. For one thing, it was ringing.
Ben dragged his mouth away from mine and mumbled a curse that was a little shocking and kind of hot.
"Ignore it," he said.
That was easy for him to say when his cell phone was rounding third base. If anyone got a home run tonight, I didn't want it to be Verizon Wireless. #Quote by Rosemary Clement-Moore
Thirds quotes by David Icke
#34. The plan is to engineer events, real and staged, that will create enormous fear in the countdown years to 2012. This includes a plan to start a third world war either by stimulating the Muslim world into a "holy war" against the West or by using the Chinese to cause global conflict. Maybe both. #Quote by David Icke
Thirds quotes by Navjot Singh Sidhu
#35. The third umpires should be changed as often as nappies and for the same reason. #Quote by Navjot Singh Sidhu
Thirds quotes by Jon Landau
#36. On first listening, Joni Mitchell's 'Court And Spark,' the first truly great pop album of 1974, sounds surprisingly light; by the third or fourth listening, it reveals its underlying tensions. #Quote by Jon Landau
Thirds quotes by Aaron Rodgers
#37. If we can string together some wins this year, maybe I'll be a close second-or third behind Bart Starr-on their favorite quarterback list. #Quote by Aaron Rodgers
Thirds quotes by Jay Leno
#38. A new study says that over half of all Californians are
obese. In fact, half of Californians are really two-thirds
of Californians. #Quote by Jay Leno
Thirds quotes by Ralph Eugene Meatyard
#39. I think I have been able to eliminate the idea of a third person: the Intruding Photographer. #Quote by Ralph Eugene Meatyard
Thirds quotes by Suzanne Brockmann
#40. I remain convinced that the most valuable use of time for a newly published author is to write a second book that's even better than the first, and a third that's better than the second, and on and on. #Quote by Suzanne Brockmann
Thirds quotes by Lady Gaga
#41. I talk about myself in the third person all the time. I don't live my life in the way someone like you does. I live my life completely serving only my work and my fans. #Quote by Lady Gaga
Thirds quotes by Thomas Sankara
#42. Our revolution in Burkina Faso draws on the totality of mans experiences since the first breath of humanity. We wish to be the heirs of all the revolutions of the world, of all the liberation struggles of the peoples of the Third World. We draw the lessons of the American revolution. #Quote by Thomas Sankara
Thirds quotes by J.C. Ryle
#43. Two-thirds of all the strifes, quarrels, and lawsuits in the world arise from one simple cause-money. #Quote by J.C. Ryle
Thirds quotes by Thomas Huxley
#44. Nothing can be more incorrect than the assumption one sometimes meets with, that physics has one method, chemistry another, and biology a third. #Quote by Thomas Huxley
Thirds quotes by Eileen Day McKusick
#45. The transmission of excitation energies between molecules through electromagnetic coupling is not a mere matter of speculation."2 These energies flow through water channels inside the body since over 99 percent of the molecules inside the body are water molecules and the body is two-thirds water by volume. Every protein, whether constituting bone, sinews, or any other tissue, exists in a hydrated form. When the water content of the body decreases to less than 50 percent, we die. Protons and electrons separate along membranes to create charged layers analogous to a tiny battery as the revolutionary work of Gerald Pollack at the University of Washington has recently shown.3 In this inner electrical environment of our bodies, the magic of life unfolds and this environment is also able to be influenced in a powerful manner through sound vibrations. #Quote by Eileen Day McKusick
Thirds quotes by Pat Paulsen
#46. Every child has a right to go to high school and end up with a third grade education. #Quote by Pat Paulsen
Thirds quotes by Aldous Huxley
#47. Why should human females become sterile in their forties, while female crocodiles continue to lay eggs into their third century? #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Thirds quotes by Philip Guston
#48. When I see people making 'abstract' painting, I think it's just a dialogue and a dialogue isn't enough. That is to say, there is you painting and this canvas. I think there has to be a third thing; it has to be a trialogue. #Quote by Philip Guston
Thirds quotes by Dick Gregory
#49. People keep telling me about the white race and the black race - and it really doesn't make sense. I played Miami, met a fellow two shades darker than me - and his name was Ginsberg! Took my place in two sit-in demonstrations - nobody knew the difference. The he tried for a third lunch counter and blew the whole bit ... asked for blintzes. #Quote by Dick Gregory
Thirds quotes by William J. Clinton
#50. Two-thirds of the Iranian people would like to be reconciled with the West. They don't like the fanaticism of the governing religious council. It's the only place in the world where the last six elections have been won by the more progressive candidate, two for president, two for the mayors, two for the parliament. So most people there are sympathetic to the world we Americans want to build, whether we're Republicans or Democrats. On the other hand, almost everybody there wants them to have nuclear power. They see it as a status symbol, and a sense of their own security. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Thirds quotes by Hugo Rossi
#51. In the fall of 1972, President Nixon announced that the rate of increase of inflation was decreasing. This was the first time a president used the third derivative to advance his case for reelection. #Quote by Hugo Rossi
Thirds quotes by Gabriel Kolko
#52. The fundamental assumption that the United States retains the right and obligation to intervene in the Third World in any way it ultimately deems necessary, including military, remains an article of faith among the people who guide both political parties. #Quote by Gabriel Kolko
Thirds quotes by Charlie Cochet
#53. For tonight, let's leave the crazy outside. Just you and me in here."

Sloane liked the sound of that. "Just you and me. #Quote by Charlie Cochet
Thirds quotes by Van Morrison
#54. I deliberately try not to cater for the commercial market, so I can't see myself in competition, you know, with second or third generation rock stars. #Quote by Van Morrison
Thirds quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#55. I read for three things; first, to know what the world has done the last twenty-four hours, and is about to do today; second, for the knowledge that I specially want in my work; and third, for what will bring my mind into a proper mood. #Quote by Henry Ward Beecher
Thirds quotes by Marianne Williamson
#56. When we begin to see each other through what the metaphysician calls, the third eye, we begin to know each other on a level that is beyond what our physical eyes can see. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Thirds quotes by Jimmy Fallon
#57. While he was in Utah, Obama discussed immigration reform with leaders of the Mormon Church. Obama introduced the first lady. Then the church's president introduced HIS first lady. And his second lady. And his third, fourth, and fifth ladies. #Quote by Jimmy Fallon
Thirds quotes by Renee Fleming
#58. I do everything in the third person. Performance is about being someone else. #Quote by Renee Fleming
Thirds quotes by Harold Innis
#59. Graham Wallas has reminded us that writing as compared with speaking involves an impression at the second remove and reading an impression at the third remove. The voice of a second-rate person is more impressive than the published opinion of superior ability. #Quote by Harold Innis
Thirds quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#60. There will be statues of Bill Gates across the Third World. There's a reasonable shot that - because of his money - we will cure malaria. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Thirds quotes by Robert Stone
#61. I write a very rough first draft of every chapter, then I rewrite every chapter. I try to get it down in the first rewrite, but some chapters I can't get quite right the third time. There are some I go over and over and over again. #Quote by Robert Stone
Thirds quotes by Jaromir Jagr
#62. If I was on a third or fourth line I would probably be in the NHL, because you don't have to produce every night. #Quote by Jaromir Jagr
Thirds quotes by Tom Robbins
#63. Although the surface of our planet is two-thirds water, we call it the Earth. We say we are earthlings, not waterlings. Our blood is closer to seawater than our bones to soil, but that's no matter. The sea is the cradle we all rocked out of, but it's to dust that we go. From the time that water invented us, we began to seek out dirt. The further we separate ourselves from the dirt, the further we separate ourselves from ourselves. Alienation is a disease of the unsoiled. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Thirds quotes by Alexander Pope
#64. Two women seldom grow intimate but at the expense of a third person; they make friendships as kings of old made leagues, who sacrificed some poor animal betwixt them, and commenced strict allies; so the ladies, after they have pulled some character to pieces, are from henceforth inviolable friends. #Quote by Alexander Pope
Thirds quotes by Ronald Reagan
#65. We're entering our third century now, but it's wrong to judge our nation by its years. The calendar can't measure America because we were meant to be an endless experiment in freedom, with no limits to our reaches, no boundaries to what we can do, no end point to our hopes. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Thirds quotes by Dennis Miller
#66. A third myth is that men think that women like guys who are dangerous. As a result, guys will often smoke cigarettes, drink too much, and ride a motorcycle without a helmet. The reality? Women don't like guys who are dangerous. Women want us to think that because women are trying to kill us. #Quote by Dennis Miller
Thirds quotes by Charles Sanders Peirce
#67. Three elements go to make up an idea. The first is its intrinsic quality as a feeling. The second is the energy with which it affects other ideas, an energy which is infinite in the here-and-nowness of immediate sensation, finite and relative in the recency of the past. The third element is the tendency of an idea to bring along other ideas with it. #Quote by Charles Sanders Peirce
Thirds quotes by Condoleezza Rice
#68. I will never forget the bright September day, standing at my desk in the White House, when my young assistant said that a plane had hit the World Trade Center - and then a second one - and a third, the Pentagon. #Quote by Condoleezza Rice
Thirds quotes by Chris Hadfield
#69. For the last several years and culminating in six months in orbit next year, I've been training for my third space flight. This one is almost in a category completely different than the previous two, specifically to live in on the space station for six months, to command a space ship and to fly a new rocket ship. #Quote by Chris Hadfield
Thirds quotes by Frederick Lenz
#70. Knowledge and power doesn't come from an entity, it comes from within yourself. What can these things tell you, to put five bucks on Snowflake in the third race? #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Thirds quotes by Octavia Butler
#71. Third, for people who aren't doing it already, take classes - they're worthwhile. Workshops or classes - a workshop is where you do actually get feedback on your work, not just something where you go and sit for a day. #Quote by Octavia Butler
Thirds quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#72. Absolute passion cannot be understood by a third party. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Thirds quotes by Robin Williams
#73. I do believe in love; it's wonderful - especially love third time around, it's even more precious; it's kind of amazing. #Quote by Robin Williams
Thirds quotes by Bill Gates
#74. When I was trying to figure out why lives have improved so much in the last 300 years, where we've gone from a third of kids dying before 5 to - by 1990 it was down to 10% - now it's down to 5%. And saying why, over all history, there were smart people, but that number didn't change. Average life span didn't change. What's magical about what's been deemed the Industrial Revolution? It's really energy intensity. #Quote by Bill Gates
Thirds quotes by Marcel Proust
#75. I drank a second mouthful in which I find nothing more than in the first, then a third which gives me rather less than the second. It is time to stop; the potion is losing its magic. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Thirds quotes by Molly Antopol
#76. I'm not Israeli and because I'm not a citizen, it doesn't matter how often I go there - I'm still not Israeli. There's this way I feel so close to so many people there, but I always feel like I'm staring through the glass. And in a way, having this really thin piece of glass between me and this place is incredibly useful for me as a writer, because I'm just so hyper-aware of it. I could take a walk in San Francisco and probably notice a third of the things that I would notice in Israel, because I'm just attuned to everything when I'm there. #Quote by Molly Antopol
Thirds quotes by Sonia Sotomayor
#77. The best I could say about third grade was that it was a more or less continuous state of dread. #Quote by Sonia Sotomayor
Thirds quotes by Gary F. Marcus
#78. To the extent that genomes can be thought of as compressed encodings of biological structures, they are spectacularly efficient. All the trillions of cells in the human body-not just the tens of billions in the brain-are guided in one way or another by the information contained in 30,000 or so genes. The best high-quality set of pictures of the body- the National Institutes of Health Visible Human Project, a series of high-resolution digital photos of slices taken from volunteer Joseph Paul Jernigan (deceased)-takes up about 60 gigabytes, enough (if left uncompressed) to fill about 100 CD-ROMs-and still not enough detail to capture individual cells. The genome, in contrast, contains only about 3 billion nucleotides, the equivalent (at two bits per nucleotide) of less than two-thirds of a gigabyte, or a single CD-ROM. #Quote by Gary F. Marcus
Thirds quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#79. Re-reading is much underrated. I've read The Spy Who Came in from the Cold once every five years since I was 15. I only started to understand it the third time. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Thirds quotes by Frederick Lenz
#80. The kundalini energy rests in potential at the base of the spine. It is possible to take that energy and allow it to move, to unleash it, from the base of the spine up to the third eye. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Thirds quotes by Ellen Gustafson
#81. The abundance of cheap food with low nutritional value in the Western diet has wreaked havoc on our health; in America, one third of children and two thirds of adults are overweight or obese and are more likely to develop diabetes and cardiovascular disease. #Quote by Ellen Gustafson
Thirds quotes by Ruth Ann Minner
#82. Benjamin Franklin said there were only two things certain in life: death and taxes. But I'd like to add a third certainty: trash. And while some in this room might want to discuss reducing taxes, I want to talk about reducing trash. #Quote by Ruth Ann Minner
Thirds quotes by Rose George
#83. 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
Thirds quotes by Paul Samuelson
#84. Two-thirds of a century after [The Road to Serfdom] got written, hindsight confirms how inaccurate its innuendo about the future turned out to be. #Quote by Paul Samuelson
Thirds quotes by Bill Vaughan
#85. The United States grants the favors of the second, third, or fifty-seventh chance, and its citizens remain free to invent for themselves whatever character draws a crowd or pays the rent. #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Thirds quotes by Eva Green
#86. To help people in the third world get educated and learn how to read and write is so important. I mean it is such an important human right. #Quote by Eva Green
Thirds quotes by Justin Cole
#87. I don't want to be one of those players that is just a first, second or third down player. I want to be a four-down player, able to play in the ground and dirt with the linemen, but also able to play in space. #Quote by Justin Cole
Thirds quotes by Peter Greenaway
#88. An American critic wrote that she would rather be forced to read the New York telephone directory three times than watch the film A Zed and Two Noughts, a third of which was a homage to Vermeer. Conceivably, if you are a list-enthusiast like me, the New York telephone directory might be fascinating, demographically, geographically, historically, typographically, cartographically; but I am sure no compliment was intended. #Quote by Peter Greenaway
Thirds quotes by Ethel Barrymore
#89. [At age 76:] A good life is like a good play
it has to have a satisfying and exciting third act. #Quote by Ethel Barrymore
Thirds quotes by Jimmy Carter
#90. We know that a peaceful world cannot long exist, one-third rich and two-thirds hungry. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Thirds quotes by Andrew Wyeth
#91. I search for the realness, the real feeling of a subject, all the texture around it ... I always want to see the third dimension of something ... I want to come alive with the object. #Quote by Andrew Wyeth
Thirds quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith
#92. Third party politics, at least since La Follette, has always had an element of romance. #Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith
Thirds quotes by Gore Vidal
#93. I come from the highest class of all. I am a third-generation celebrity. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Thirds quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#94. There used to be two kinds of kisses: First when girls were kissed and deserted; second, when they were engaged. Now there's a third kind, where the man is kissed and deserted. If Mr. Jones of the nineties bragged he'd kissed a girl, everyone knew he was through with her. If Mr. Jones of 1919 brags the same, everyone knows it's because he can't kiss her any more. Given a decent start any girl can beat a man nowadays. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Thirds quotes by Steven Pinker
#95. When you scale by population size, only one of the 20th century's atrocities even makes the top ten. The worst atrocity of all time was the An Lushan Revolt and Civil War, an eight-year rebellion during China's Tang Dynasty that, according to censuses, resulted in the loss of two-thirds of the empire's population, a sixth of the world's population at the time.13 #Quote by Steven Pinker
Thirds quotes by John Landgraf
#96. For me, personally, I'm more comfortable with what I would call third-person entertainment, meaning watching a character that's explicitly not me and experiencing something through a character's eyes, than what I would call first-person entertainment, which is a video game in which I am the character. #Quote by John Landgraf
Thirds quotes by Tom Regan
#97. All great movements, it is written, go through three stages: ridicule, discussion, adoption. It is the realisation of this third stage, adoption, that requires our passion and our discipline, our hearts and our heads. The fate of animals is in our hands. #Quote by Tom Regan
Thirds quotes by Christopher Nolan
#98. What drew me to Batman in the first place was Bruce Wayne's story, and that he's a real character whose story begins in childhood. He's not a fully formed character like James Bond, so what we're doing is following the journey of this guy from a child who goes through this horrible experience of becoming this extraordinary character. That, for me, became a three-part story. And obviously the third part becomes the ending of the guy's story. #Quote by Christopher Nolan
Thirds quotes by Frank Woolley
#99. It is amazing how the public steadfastly refuse to attend the third day of a match when so often the last day produces the best and most exciting cricket. #Quote by Frank Woolley
Thirds quotes by Renee Montagne
#100. The Marines already have started putting women through infantry training. They've done it for the past couple of years. And it's tough. Roughly one-third of women have made it through that infantry training. So you're not going to see a lot of women actually make it through this. #Quote by Renee Montagne
Thirds quotes by Margaret Haddix
#101. I started trying to write when I was in second or third grade. #Quote by Margaret Haddix
Thirds quotes by Charles Handy
#102. The first step is to measure whatever can easily be measured. This is OK as far as it goes. The second step is to disregard that which can't be easily measured or to give it an arbitrary quantitative value. This is artificial and misleading. The third step is to presume that what can't be measured easily really isn't important. This is blindness. The fourth step is to say that what can't be easily measured really doesn't exist. This is suicide. #Quote by Charles Handy
Thirds quotes by Bertolt Brecht
#103. A man who sees another man on the street corner with only a stump for an arm will be so shocked the first time he'll give him sixpence. But the second time it'll only be a three penny bit. And if he sees him a third time, he'll have him cold-bloodedly handed over to the police. #Quote by Bertolt Brecht
Thirds quotes by Jacqueline Novogratz
#104. We run Aravind like McDonald's," he explained, "clean and organized, with every process known and understood so that we get maximum efficiency. Two-thirds of the patients pay nothing or nearly nothing, and yet the hospital is consistently profitable - and growing. #Quote by Jacqueline Novogratz
Thirds quotes by Fred Rogers
#105. I'm proud of you for the times you came in second, or third, or fourth, but what you did was the best you have ever done #Quote by Fred Rogers
Thirds quotes by Nick Hornby
#106. I hope that when people are happy together, it feels as though someone keeps piling seconds and thirds on their plates. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Thirds quotes by Michelle Bachelet
#107. People see I am a mother and head of a household. Today in Chile, one-third of households are run by women. They wake up, take the children to school, go to work. To them I am hope. #Quote by Michelle Bachelet
Thirds quotes by Neal Boortz
#108. History lesson, folks: The tax system we have today - the one we've come to know and love - began ninety-four years ago as a (drum roll, please) flat tax! The monstrosity you see today is a flat tax on income after nearly a century of very imperfect evolution. At first, only a very small percentage of Americans were asked to pay income tax. In fact, that's how they sold it to us - as a tax on the rich!
Well, that all changed with World War II. The cost of the war effort led to an expansion of those who paid federal income taxes - and we were off to the races. The tax code was flattened again, if you will, in 1986. Since that time it has been amended 16,000 times. We now have more than 67,000 pages of statutes and regulations - which helps explain why, last year, nearly two-thirds of all tax filers had to seek professional help with their tax return. #Quote by Neal Boortz
Thirds quotes by Aaron Chase
#109. Essentially the rule of thirds is this: If you take a photo and place two imaginary horizontal lines across it, dividing the photo into three horizontal rectangles, and if you take two vertical lines and do the same then you will end up with an imaginary set of lines like those below: #Quote by Aaron Chase
Thirds quotes by Catfish Hunter
#110. On the day I was signed, Mr. Finley, the owner of the Athletics at that time came up to me and said, 'When you were six you ran away from home, and when your parents found you at a nearby lake, you had already caught two catfish and were pulling in a third. Now repeat it back to me.' #Quote by Catfish Hunter
Thirds quotes by Seth Shostak
#111. While about one-third of Americans believe in ghosts, you won't find many exhibits on these spooky beings down at the local science museum. Why? Well, one explanation that you might consider, ghosts are just figments of our highly fertile imaginations! #Quote by Seth Shostak
Thirds quotes by Wm. Paul Young
#112. You may have to declare your forgiveness a hundred times the first day and the second day, but the third day will be less and each day after, until one day you will realize that you have forgiven completely. And then one day you will pray for his wholeness and give him over to me so that my love will burn from his life every vestige of corruption. #Quote by Wm. Paul Young
Thirds quotes by Joel Stein
#113. What I wound up doing, which I think is really journalistically dubious, is changing the order of some of the things I did, so that the things I ended up struggling with the most wind up being two-thirds of the way in. #Quote by Joel Stein
Thirds quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#114. Getting a problem analyzed is two-thirds of solving it. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Thirds quotes by Hans Kung
#115. And a third thing is the understanding of the Church as a community, a communion which is just a hierarchy but the people of God, whose servants are the priests and bishops. #Quote by Hans Kung
Thirds quotes by Bobby McFerrin
#116. I did the one concert, and I was not bitten by the conducting bug, and I thought I was done, but then the phone started to ring, and gradually, over time, I started conducting more and more. Now a third of my performances are with orchestras. #Quote by Bobby McFerrin
Thirds quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#117. Quarks are quirky beasts. Unlike protons, each with an electric charge of +1, and electrons, with a charge of –1, quarks have fractional charges that come in thirds. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Thirds quotes by G.I. Gurdjieff
#118. I will tell you one thing that will make you rich for life. There are two struggles: an Inner-world struggle and an Outer-world struggle ... you must make an intentional contact between these two worlds; then you can crystallize data for the Third World, the World of the Soul. #Quote by G.I. Gurdjieff
Thirds quotes by Denham Sutcliffe
#119. We want not only life but an intense awareness of being alive. The large tendency of our mechanical and standardized civilization is to blunt that awareness by surrounding us with ideas and forms that require the lowest degree of consciousness. One lives in it less by reflection than by reflex. The effect of the uniform blows with which the environment strikes us is to make us insensitive to any but the most violent stimuli; two-thirds of life ceases to exist for us because the valves of attention require cataclysmic upheavals before they will open. Lacking the capacity to be excited by any but the most gross and violent stimuli, we spend our lives in a frantic race with boredom. #Quote by Denham Sutcliffe
Thirds quotes by Arthur Hertzberg
#120. Look, the hard-line Jewish position is based, to this day, on the idea that the Palestinian Arabs somehow or other will either accept third-class status, or they will pick up and go away. Now, this isn't happening. #Quote by Arthur Hertzberg
Thirds quotes by Gil Gerard
#121. No, I was talking to the network and Universal about plans for a third season where Buck would go back to Earth and would focus on stories around the planet and show what it was like 500 years later. #Quote by Gil Gerard
Thirds quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#122. It could kill you, Maura said.
Then there was the awkward moment that arrives when two thirds of the people in the room know that the other third is supposed to die in fewer than nine months, and the person who is meant to die is not one of the ones in the know. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Thirds quotes by Jen Hatmaker
#123. We don't see the New Testament church hoarding the feast for themselves, gorging, getting fatter and fatter and asking for more; more bible studies, more sermons, more programs, classes, training, conferences, information, more feasting for us. At some point, the church stopped living the bible and decided just to study it, culling the feast parts and whitewashing the fast parts. We are addicted to the buffet, skillfully discarding the costly discipleship required after consuming. The feast is supposed to sustain the fast, but we go back for seconds and thirds and fourths, stuffed to the brim and fat with inactivity. #Quote by Jen Hatmaker
Thirds quotes by Gregory A. Boyd
#124. So these liberals say historical research can't possibly discover the Jesus of faith, because the Jesus of faith is not rooted in history. He's merely a symbol. But listen: Jesus is not a symbol of anything unless he's rooted in history. The Nicene Creed doesn't say, "We wish these things were true." It says, "Jesus Christ was crucified under Pontius Pilate, and the third day he rose again from the dead,' and it goes on from there. #Quote by Gregory A. Boyd
Thirds quotes by Kamala Harris
#125. Eighty-two percent of prisoners in the United States are high-school dropouts. A high-school dropout between the ages of 30 and 34 is two-thirds more likely to be in jail, or to have been in jail, or to be dead. #Quote by Kamala Harris
Thirds quotes by Donna Farhi
#126. When we feel connected to the vastness of life and are confident of life's abundance, we are naturally generous and able to practice the third yama, non-stealing (asteya). #Quote by Donna Farhi
Thirds quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#127. We have not noticed how fast the rest has risen. Most of the industrialized world--and a good part of the nonindustrialized world as well--has better cell phone service than the United States. Broadband is faster and cheaper across the industrial world, from Canada to France to Japan, and the United States now stands sixteenth in the world in broadband penetration per capita. Americans are constantly told by their politicians that the only thing we have to learn from other countries' health care systems is to be thankful for ours. Most Americans ignore the fact that a third of the country's public schools are totally dysfunctional (because their children go to the other two-thirds). The American litigation system is now routinely referred to as a huge cost to doing business, but no one dares propose any reform of it. Our mortgage deduction for housing costs a staggering $80 billion a year, and we are told it is crucial to support home ownership, except that Margaret Thatcher eliminated it in Britain, and yet that country has the same rate of home ownership as the United States. We rarely look around and notice other options and alternatives, convinced that "we're number one. #Quote by Fareed Zakaria
Thirds quotes by Janet Yellen
#128. [A] major source of wealth for many families is financial assets, including stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and private pensions ... the wealthiest 5 percent of households held nearly two-thirds of all such assets in 2013 #Quote by Janet Yellen
Thirds quotes by Mitt Romney
#129. Third, we will make trade work for America by forging new trade agreements. And when nations cheat in trade, there will be unmistakable consequences. #Quote by Mitt Romney
Thirds quotes by Bobby Abreu
#130. I really like triples. You hardly ever see me stop at second. My goal is third and that's where I'm headed. #Quote by Bobby Abreu
Thirds quotes by Bernie Sanders
#131. Two-thirds of the directors at the New York Fed are hand-picked by the same bankers that the Fed is in charge of regulating. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Thirds quotes by John Motson
#132. In a sense it's a one-man show ... except there are two men involved, Hartson and Berkovic, and a third man, the goalkeeper. #Quote by John Motson
Thirds quotes by Mikhail Bulgakov
#133. But worse things were about to be found in the bedroom: on the jeweller's wife's ottoman, in a casual pose, sprawled a third party- namely, a black cat of uncanny size, with a glass of vodka in one paw and a fork, on which he had managed to spear a pickled mushroom, in the other. , The Master and Magarita #Quote by Mikhail Bulgakov
Thirds quotes by Bertrand Russell
#134. First: never use a long word if a short word will do. Second: if you want to make a statement with a great many qualifications, put some of the qualifications in separate sentences. Third: do not let the beginning of your sentence lead the reader to an expectation which is contradicted by the end. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Thirds quotes by George H. Smith
#135. The third major characteristic of God - "infinitude" - is the catchall, the universal modifier of Christian theology. God is not merely a being; he is infinite being. God is not merely good; he is infinite goodness. God is not merely wise; he is infinite wisdom. And so on down the list. God is exaggeration run amuck. #Quote by George H. Smith
Thirds quotes by Reggie Fils-Aime
#136. For us, launching new systems is about bringing new consumer experiences to the marketplace and we're doing that with Nintendo land and third-party publishers are doing it with games like ZombiU. For us, now is the right time to launch new hardware. #Quote by Reggie Fils-Aime
Thirds quotes by Monte Irvin
#137. You should have seen Willie Wells play shortstop: as good as Ozzie Smith and a better hitter. How I wish people could have seen Ray Dandridge play third base, as good as Brooks Robinson and Craig Nettles and all of those. He was bowlegged; a train might go through there, but not a baseball. #Quote by Monte Irvin
Thirds quotes by Paul W. S. Anderson
#138. I had the opportunity to work with Aliens and Predators when Resident Evil 2 was being made and it was for two different studios. It was for Fox and Sony. They don't care about one another. They just want their movies. So it was very difficult to delay one and ... So I had to make a very painful decision to kind of step away from directing the second movie and with the third movie it was the same. #Quote by Paul W. S. Anderson
Thirds quotes by Jay Inslee
#139. Third issue, and again I think it is important to note, anyone can make a mistake and any administration can make a mistake once in a while, but this is just a long train of abuses, an unbroken chain of following special interests rather than the health of the American people. #Quote by Jay Inslee
Thirds quotes by John The Apostle
#140. The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down upon the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up. #Quote by John The Apostle
Thirds quotes by Immanuel Wallerstein
#141. It is this third consequence that has been elaborated in greatest detail and has formed one of the most significant pillars of historical capitalism, institutional racism. #Quote by Immanuel Wallerstein
Thirds quotes by Roger Federer
#142. Before, I guess, mum and dad were everything, but now, in my case, I had two new girls and all of a sudden they're completely dependent on you and there's a third generation. It's a funny shift all of a sudden. You have the babies, you have yourself and then you have your parents. #Quote by Roger Federer
Thirds quotes by Devon Aoki
#143. I lived in London for eight years and I like to say that I am two parts American and one part British because I lived there for a third of my life. #Quote by Devon Aoki

#144. Let the RINOs start a third party #Quote by Mark Levin
Thirds quotes by Barbara Marx Hubbard
#145. I really think that the planet is growing a new nervous system. I mean, when you think of Facebook as the third largest nation in the world, that's so unprecedented, so amazing. Think of how many people are texting and twittering. The planet has created a nervous system for massive, rapid connectivity. #Quote by Barbara Marx Hubbard
Thirds quotes by Yoko Ono
#146. Some people are saying there's going to be a third World War. I hope not. I really think this is a time that people can start to mend things by negotiations, dealings. We know about dealings, don't we? We have brilliant lawyers. Why don't we have brilliant lawyers standing up and working for peace? #Quote by Yoko Ono
Thirds quotes by Buchi Emecheta
#147. I like to be called a Nigerian rather than somebody from the Third World or the developing or whatever. #Quote by Buchi Emecheta
Thirds quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#148. The first Degree of Folly, is to conceit one's self wise; the second to profess it; the third to despise Counsel. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Thirds quotes by Annie Lamott
#149. This is the most profound spiritual truth I know: that even when we're most sure that love can't conquer all, it seems to anyway. It goes down into the rat hole with us, in the guise of our friends, and there it swells and comforts. It gives us second winds, third winds, hundredth winds ... your spirits don't rise until you get way down. Maybe it's because this - the mud, the bottom - is where it all rises from ... when someone enters that valley with you, that mud, it somehow saves you again. #Quote by Annie Lamott
Thirds quotes by Albert Einstein
#150. I do not believe that civilization will be wiped out in a war fought with the atomic bomb. Perhaps two-thirds of the people of the earth will be killed. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Thirds quotes by J.R. Ward
#151. After a moment, Wrath turned to John. "This is Lassiter, the fallen angel. One of the last times he was here on earth, there was a plague in central Europe-"
"Okay, that was so not my fault-"
"-which wiped out two-thirds of the human population."
"I'd like to remind you that you don't like humans."
"They smell bad when they're dead."
"All you mortal types do. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Thirds quotes by Lizzy Caplan
#152. I was a Russian dancer in my elementary school production of 'Fiddler on the Roof' when I was in third grade or fourth grade. I was one of the younger kids accepted into the play, and the plays were pretty impressive, let me say. #Quote by Lizzy Caplan
Thirds quotes by Herman Melville
#153. Yea, foolish mortals, Noah's flood is not yet subsided; two thirds of the fair world it yet covers. #Quote by Herman Melville
Thirds quotes by Steve Martin
#154. I like what a third man brings. A kind of oblique vision, seeing something in the material that you didn't know was there. As a comedian, I'm always listening to the audience. And in movies, sometimes the only audience you have is the producer and the director. I like having someone else's opinion, especially if you're on the same wavelength. #Quote by Steve Martin
Thirds quotes by Craig Reucassel
#155. The exchange rate between first-world lives and third-world lives in disaster stories in the media is about 50:1. #Quote by Craig Reucassel
Thirds quotes by William J. Clinton
#156. If we have the right preventive and primary care, if we start charging for comprehensive care in the chronic cases, 10 percent of the cases take up two-thirds of the medical expenses, and if we do more on problems like childhood obesity, that we can, to use the parlance that's popular in Washington, bend the cost curve and eventually reconcile this so our costs will be closer to our competitors and so we can cover everybody. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Thirds quotes by Harbhajan Singh Yogi
#157. Write it on your forehead, write it on your heart, on your third chakra, on your second chakra and your first chakra. You will never go short, never will you have less. God will prevail by God's True Nature. If you have discomfort and hunger say, "God, that is Thy Virtue. Thank you for accepting me for that tragedy." This is the attitude of gratitude. "My shackles will be removed by Thy Will." God is so great, to Him the whole of what we have is just like a sesame seed. #Quote by Harbhajan Singh Yogi
Thirds quotes by Jeff Foxworthy
#158. I say, If everybody in this house lives where it's God first, friends and family second and you third, we won't ever have an argument. #Quote by Jeff Foxworthy
Thirds quotes by Israel Zangwill
#159. There are three reasons why men of genius have long hair. One is, that they forget it is growing. The second is, that they like it. The third is, that it comes cheaper; they wear it long for the same reason they wear their hats long. #Quote by Israel Zangwill
Thirds quotes by Tina Brown
#160. In today's gig economy, where jobs have been replaced by 'portfolios of projects,' most people find themselves doing more things less well for two-thirds of the money. #Quote by Tina Brown
Thirds quotes by T. S. Eliot
#161. Dante and Shakespeare divide the world between them. There is no third. #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Thirds quotes by Jerry Saltz
#162. The alchemy of good curating amounts to this: Sometimes, placing one work of art near another makes one plus one equal three. Two artworks arranged alchemically leave each intact, transform both, and create a third thing. #Quote by Jerry Saltz
Thirds quotes by Zadie Smith
#163. When the male organ of a man stands erect, two thirds of his intelect go away. And one third of his religion. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Thirds quotes by Karen Chance
#164. You will die a worse death if you do not leave my domain," a voice thundered down from the third story of the old tenement. "I am a servant of the Sacred Fire, the wielder of the flame of Arnor - " "So I should call you Gandalf? #Quote by Karen Chance
Thirds quotes by Tim Lambesis
#165. European festivals area lot bigger than American ones, but I like the travelling festivals, it's the same production every day and the bands get used to the stage set up and by the third or fourth show of the tour they're putting on a better show than if they just played one day. #Quote by Tim Lambesis
Thirds quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#166. No reform is possible unless some of the educated and the rich voluntarily accept the status of the poor, travel third, refuse to enjoy the amenities denied to the poor, and instead of taking avoidable hardships, discourtesies, and injustice as a matter of course, fight for their removal. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Thirds quotes by Isidore Of Seville
#167. Number is divided into even and odd. Even number is divided into the following: evenly even, evenly uneven, and unevenly uneven. Odd number is divided into the following: prime and incomposite, composite, and a third intermediate class (mediocris) which in a certain way is prime and incomposite but in another way secondary and composite. #Quote by Isidore Of Seville
Thirds quotes by John McCain
#168. Well, I don't think it is amnesty to start with. Second of all, what do you want to do with them? That is the question in response and third of all, it is a tough path to citizenship, you have to pay back tax and learn English and have to have a clear record and get to the back of the line behind to the people who have come here legally or waiting legally. So, i just reject that. #Quote by John McCain
Thirds quotes by Plutarch
#169. He (Cato) used to say that in all his life he never repented but of three things. The first was that he had trusted a woman with a secret; the second that he had gone by sea when he might have gone by land; and the third, that had passed one day without having a will by him. #Quote by Plutarch
Thirds quotes by Bill Hamon
#170. The Holy Spirit began to move mightily. As we continued to worship, I sensed that the birthing spirit was sweeping over us and more prophetic utterance came forth. I began to declare to the people that the Lord was birthing the Third Reformation in our midst. Several began to actually sense birthing pains. Several had visions of what was taking place and others saw angels ministering in our midst. I encouraged everyone to press in to God and make sure they received the birthing within their lives. #Quote by Bill Hamon
Thirds quotes by Sun Tzu
#171. Factors in the art of warfare are: First, calculations; second, quantities; third, logistics; fourth, the balance of power; and fifth, the possibility of victory is based on the balance of power. #Quote by Sun Tzu
Thirds quotes by H.G.Wells
#172. About two-thirds of the face of Marx is beard, a vast solemn wooly uneventful beard that must have made all normal exercise impossible. It is not the sort of beard that happens to a man, it is a beard cultivated, cherished, and thrust patriarchally upon the world. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Thirds quotes by Peter Falk
#173. I remember once in high school the umpire called me out at third base when I was sure I was safe. I got so mad I took out my glass eye, handed it to him and said, Try this. I got such a laugh you wouldnt believe. #Quote by Peter Falk
Thirds quotes by Ramon Magsaysay
#174. Energy Engineering started first in IIT Kharagpur in 1983 and mine was the third batch. It was definitely not a popular course. It was basically an amalgamation of nuclear, mechanical, chemical engineering, etc. But I don't think it was a big factor because if we look, most of them joined the IT sectors and not the energy sector. #Quote by Ramon Magsaysay
Thirds quotes by Denis O'Hare
#175. I was a fan of 'Six Feet Under' and was very sad when it ended, so I was not ready to switch my allegiance to another show. So I was like, 'I'm not watching this 'True Blood.' Then a friend got a bootleg copy of the first four episodes, and by the third one, I was irrevocably hooked. #Quote by Denis O'Hare
Thirds quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#176. Conquered states that have been accustomed to liberty and the government of their own laws can be held by the conqueror in three different ways. The first is to ruin them; the second, for the conqueror to go and reside there in person; and the third is to allow them to continue to live under their own laws, subject to a regular tribute, and to create in them a government of a few, who will keep the country friendly to the conqueror #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Thirds quotes by Anne Lamott
#177. I am a terrible and lazy Christian. I do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God. I just skip about a third of it. I love the parts I love so much, but I find a lot of it just appalling. When a right-wing person quotes a passage in order to attack and stigmatize another person
or group of people
I just roll my eyes. #Quote by Anne Lamott

Thirds quotes by Dany Heatley
#180. Every country gets fired up to play us. They played well. I thought when it was 2-1 that we had some chances to make it 3, 4-1. He made some saves and we just missed some shots. They got a break on their second, and the third period I thought we had a lot of chances, he made some big saves. We got it done in the shootout. #Quote by Dany Heatley
Thirds quotes by Peter Heather
#181. Claiming to be a unique divinely guided state, destined by the Almighty to bring Christian civilization to the entire globe, lost most of its force after two-thirds of the empire had been conquered by the standard-bearers of a different religion. Fortunately, Judaeo-Christian texts offered another, now more apposite model. From divinely ordained world conquerors, emperors were able to use the Old Testament to morph themselves into the leaders of a Chosen People, riding the Constantinopolitan Ark of salvation through besetting tempests towards final Salvation and Triumph, with apocalypse a recurrently popular genre. #Quote by Peter Heather
Thirds quotes by Wu Ta-ch'i
#182. Now there are five matters to which a general must pay strict heed. The first of these is administration; the second, preparedness; the third, determination; the fourth, prudence; and the fifth, economy. #Quote by Wu Ta-ch'i
Thirds quotes by Larry Carlton
#183. I want to figure out how I can make the most important statement with the least amount of information, so I don't run out of ideas by the time I get to my second or third chorus. #Quote by Larry Carlton
Thirds quotes by Peter Singer
#184. What one generation finds ridiculous, the next accepts; and the third shudders when it looks back on what the first did. #Quote by Peter Singer
Thirds quotes by Chantal Kreviazuk
#185. I've built a solid career there, but America's ten times the size. Now that we're onto the third record, I feel like the stars have aligned and American audiences are embracing my music even more. #Quote by Chantal Kreviazuk

#186. Fancy rules over two thirds of the universe, the past, and future, while reality is confined to the present #Quote by Jean Paul
Thirds quotes by P. J. Plauger
#187. The stored-program digital computer has three major attributes: it is fast, it is accurate, and it is stupid. The first two attributes are often used to disguise the third. #Quote by P. J. Plauger
Thirds quotes by Iyanla Vanzant

#189. I wouldn't take the Pope too seriously. He's a Pole first, a pope second, and maybe a Christian third. #Quote by Muriel Spark
Thirds quotes by Asne Seierstad
#190. War was a central theme in maths books too. School books - because the Taliban printed books soley for boys - did not calcualte in apples and cakes, but in bullets and kalasnikovs. Something like this: 'little Omar has a kalasnikov with three magazines. There are twenty bullets in each magazine. He uses two thirds of the bullets and kills sixty infidels does he kill with each bullet? #Quote by Asne Seierstad
Thirds quotes by Conrad Veidt
#191. I turned down the first script offered to me, and the second. I lay on my back one day under an umbrella, in the garden, reading the third, and wondered why I had turned down the first. #Quote by Conrad Veidt
Thirds quotes by Joseph Epstein
#192. Courage is nine-tenths context. What is courageous in one setting can be foolhardy in another and even cowardly in a third. #Quote by Joseph Epstein
Thirds quotes by Ram Dass
#193. By going into third world countries and serving, by actually feeding and helping people, I've been led to focus a little more on how people here try to be happy by ignoring other people who are unhappy. #Quote by Ram Dass
Thirds quotes by Richard Dawkins
#194. If you divide Christians into denominations, agnostics and atheists come in third, behind Catholics and Baptists. That's interesting when you contrast it with the lack of influence of nonbelievers. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Thirds quotes by Colin Powell
#195. America has a terrible educational problem in the sense that we have too many youngsters not finishing school. A third of our kids don't finish high school, 50 percent of minorities don't finish high school. #Quote by Colin Powell

Thirds quotes by Paul Hawken
#200. People are naming it the Third Wave, the Information Age, etc. but I would say those are basically technological descriptions, and this next shift is not about technology - although obviously it will be influenced and in some cases expressed by technologies. #Quote by Paul Hawken
