Tools quotes by Mitchell Ivers
#1. We all know what good writing is: It's the novel we can't put down, the poem we never forget, the speech that changes the way we look at the world. It's the article that tells us when, where, and how, the essay that clarifies what was hazy before. Good writing is the memo that gets action, the letter that says what a phone call can't. It's the movie that makes us cry, the TV show that makes us laugh, the lyrics to the song we can't stop singing, the advertisement that makes us buy. Good writing can take form in prose or poetry, fiction or nonfiction. It can be formal or informal, literary or colloquial. The rules and tools for achieving each are different, but one difficult-to-define quality runs through them all: style. "Effectiveness of assertion" was George Bernard Shaw's definition of style. "Proper words in proper places" was Jonathan Swift's. You #Quote by Mitchell Ivers
Tools quotes by Charles Bass
#2. China has legally purchased high performance computers, advanced machine tools, and semiconductor-manufacturing equipment from several American companies. #Quote by Charles Bass
Tools quotes by George Patterson
#3. This was typical of Topgyay. Unlike most Tibetan officials, he was interested in these Khambas, the fiercest and most populous of all the Tibetan peoples, as individuals and not as mere tools to serve his purpose. They loved him for it, as much as they respected him for his fighting record. #Quote by George Patterson
Tools quotes by Jack Dorsey
#4. I think Twitter is best when it sparks conversations elsewhere. To use YouTube and Facebook and all the tools we have available to us today to respond and also promote and answer and engage is awesome. #Quote by Jack Dorsey
Tools quotes by James Beard
#5. Hands are our earliest tools. Cooking starts with the hands which are so sensitive that when they touch something they transmit messages to your brain about texture and temperature. #Quote by James Beard
Tools quotes by Poul Anderson
#6. In the intricate and mutable space-time geometry at the black hole, in-falling matter and energy interacted with the virtualities of the vacuum in ways unknown to the flatter cosmos beyond it. Quasi-stable quantum states appeared, linked according to Schrodinger's wave functions and their own entanglement, more and more of them, intricacy compounding until it amounted to a set of codes. The uncertainty principle wrought mutations; variants perished or flourished; forms competed, cooperated, merged, divided, interacted; the patterns multiplied and diversified; at last, along one fork on a branch of the life tree, thought budded.
That life was not organic, animal and vegetable and lesser kingdoms, growing, breathing, drinking, eating, breeding, hunting, hiding; it kindled no fires and wielded no tools; from the beginning, it was a kind of oneness. An original unity differentiated itself into countless avatars, like waves on a sea. They arose and lived individually, coalesced when they chose by twos or threes or multitudes, reemerged as other than they had been, gave themselves and their experiences back to the underlying whole. Evolution, history, lives eerily resembled memes in organic minds.
Yet quantum life was not a series of shifting abstractions. Like the organic, it was in and of its environment. It acted to alter its quantum states and those around it: action that manifested itself as electronic, photonic, and nuclear events. Its domain was no more shadowy to #Quote by Poul Anderson
Tools quotes by Bill O'Reilly
#7. Public misbehavior by the famous is a powerful teaching tool. #Quote by Bill O'Reilly
Tools quotes by Steve Jobs
#8. A computer is the most incredible tool we've ever seen. It can be a writing tool, a communications center, a supercalculator, a planner, a filer and an artistic instrument all in one, just by being given new instructions, or software, to work from. There are no other tools that have the power and versatility of a computer. #Quote by Steve Jobs
Tools quotes by Rosa Luxemburg
#9. The railway trains full with reservists are no longer accompanied by the loud acclamations of the young ladies; the soldiers no longer smile at the populace out of their carriage windows; instead they slink silently through the streets, their packs in their hands, while the public follows its daily preoccupations with dour faces. In the sober atmosphere of the morning after, another chorus takes the stage: the hoarse cries of the vultures and hyenas which appear on every battlefield: ten thousand tents guaranteed to specification! A hundred tons of bacon, cocoa, coffee substitute, instant delivery but cash only, hand grenades, tools, ammunition belts, marriage brokers for the widows of the fallen, agencies for government supply--only serious offers considered! The cannon fodder inflated with patriotism and carried off in August and September 1914 now rots in Belgium, in the Vosges, in the Masurian swamps, creating fertile plains of death on which profits can grow. Hurry, for the rich harvest must be gathered into the granaries--a thousand greedy hands stretch across the ocean to help. #Quote by Rosa Luxemburg
Tools quotes by Yasmin Mogahed
#10. The people are only tools, a means used by God. But they are not the sourse of help, aid, or salvation of any kind. Only God is. The people cannot even create the wing of a fly (Quran, 22:73). #Quote by Yasmin Mogahed
Tools quotes by Alan Richardson
#11. In this section you will learn how to use the tools the way that I think you will choose to use them by default. #Quote by Alan Richardson
Tools quotes by William Hunter
#12. Quality, productivity, and innovation can be significantly increased if companies provide all employees with practical tools for exploiting potential information #Quote by William Hunter
Tools quotes by John Wooden
#13. The most powerful leadership tool you have is your personal example. #Quote by John Wooden
Tools quotes by Catherynne M. Valente
#14. ...while epic fantasy is based on the fairy tale of the just war, that's not one you'll find in Grimm or Disney, and most will never recognize the shape of it. I think the fantasy genre pitches its tent in the medieval campground for the very reason that we even bother to write stories about things that never happened in the first place: because it says something subtle and true about our own world, something it is difficult to say straight out, with a straight face. Something you need tools to say, you need cheat codes for the human brain--a candy princess or a sugar-coated unicorn to wash down the sour taste of how bad things can really get.

See, I think our culture has a slash running through the middle of it, too. Past/Future, Conservative/Liberal, Online/Offline. Virgin/Whore. And yes: Classical/Medieval. I think we're torn between the Classical Narrative of Self and the Medieval Narrative of Self, between the choice of Achilles and Keep Calm and Carry On.

The Classical internal monologue goes like this: do anything, anything, only don't be forgotten. Yes, this one sacrificed his daughter on a slab at Aulis, that one married his mother and tore out his eyes, and oh that guy ate his kids in a pie. But you remember their names, don't you? So it's all good in the end. Give a Greek soul a choice between a short life full of glory and a name echoing down the halls of time and a long, gentle life full of children and a quiet sort of virtue, and he'll alwa #Quote by Catherynne M. Valente
Tools quotes by Charles E. Gannon
#15. Because in the Renaissance, broadly integrative thought was at a premium; empirical method was in its infancy. Now, with the tools of measurement so highly refined, we produce lots of narrow specialists but fewer expansive thinkers." "Well, #Quote by Charles E. Gannon
Tools quotes by Bill Gates
#16. I think it's fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we've ever created. They're tools of communication, they're tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user. #Quote by Bill Gates
Tools quotes by Pat Williams
#17. Great leaders have a heart for people. They take time for people. They view people as the bottom line, not as a tool to get to the bottom line. #Quote by Pat Williams
Tools quotes by Jacob Needleman
#18. What is [the role of money] in the search for meaning? Is our relationship to it one of the chief factors that keeps us in our prison, or could it also be a tool for breaking out, for awakening to a life filled with intensity of purpose? #Quote by Jacob Needleman
Tools quotes by William Blake
#19. Rhetoric completes the tools of learning. Dialectic zeros in on the logic of things, of particular systems of thought or subjects. Rhetoric takes the next grand step and brings all these subjects together into one whole. #Quote by William Blake
Tools quotes by Nancy Duarte
#20. My best advice is to not start in PowerPoint. Presentation tools force you to think through information linearly, and you really need to start by thinking of the whole instead of the individual lines. #Quote by Nancy Duarte
Tools quotes by Virginia Eubanks
#21. While poorhouses have been physically demolished, their legacy remains alive and well in the automated decision-making systems that encage and entrap today's poor. For all their high-tech polish, our modern systems of poverty management - automated decision-making, data mining, and predictive analysis - retain a remarkable kinship with the poorhouses of the past. Our new digital tools spring from punitive, moralistic views of poverty and create a system of high-tech containment and investigation. The digital poorhouse deters the poor from accessing public resources; polices their labor, spending, sexuality, and parenting; tries to predict their future behavior; and punishes and criminalizes those who do not comply with its dictates. In the process, it creates ever-finer moral distinctions between the 'deserving' and 'undeserving' poor, categorizations that rationalize our national failure to care for one another. #Quote by Virginia Eubanks
Tools quotes by Dean Koontz
#22. I disliked guns, but I learned to use them. I had come to understand guns, that they were tools and that they were no more evil, in their essence, than pliers and wrenches. At times, they were a necessity. In a world of evil, they were often also a blessing. Now and then, as I've said, I was able to #Quote by Dean Koontz
Tools quotes by Marco Rubio
#23. ISIS is the most sophisticated terror threat we have ever faced. We are now at a time when we need more tools, not less tools. And that took we lost, the metadata program, was a valuable tool that we no longer have at our disposal. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Tools quotes by Robert Jeffress
#24. Any tool that helps instill God's Word in the lives of people is something I can enthusiastically endorse! #Quote by Robert Jeffress
Tools quotes by Joel Bakan
#25. The corporation is not an independent "person" with its own rights, needs, and desires that regulators must respect. It is a state created tool for advancing social and economic policy. #Quote by Joel Bakan
Tools quotes by Lewis Mumford
#26. It has not been for nothing that the word has remained man's principal toy and tool: without the meanings and values it sustains, all man's other tools would be worthless. #Quote by Lewis Mumford
Tools quotes by Brad Henry
#27. We must give Oklahoma families the opportunity to thrive and prosper. We must give all Oklahomans the tools necessary to pursue the American dream. And then, we must get out of the way. #Quote by Brad Henry
Tools quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#28. Dr. Jeffrey Korchak: [reading aloud] Dear attractive woman number 2, only once in my life have I responded to a person the way I've responded to you, but I've forgotten when it was or even if it was in fact me that responded. I may not know much, but I know that the wind sings your name endlessly, although with a slight lisp that makes it difficult to understand if I'm standing near an air conditioner. I know that your hair sits atop your head as though it could sit nowhere else. I know that your figure would make a sculptor cast aside his tools, injuring his assistant who was looking out the window instead of paying attention. I know that your lips are as full as that sexy french model's that I desperately want to fuck. I know that if for an instant I could have you lie next to me, or on top of me, or sit on me, or stand over me and shake, then I would be the happiest man in my pants. I know all of this, and yet you do not know me. Change your life; accept my love. Or, at least let me pay you to accept it. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Tools quotes by Samuel Adams
#29. How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words! #Quote by Samuel Adams
Tools quotes by K. Eric Drexler
#30. Likewise nanotechnology will, once it gets under way, depend on the tools we have then and our ability to use them, and not on the steps that got us there. #Quote by K. Eric Drexler
Tools quotes by Kamaran Ihsan Salih
#31. Life consists on lightness and darkness, when you reached to lightness, prepare your tools for darkness #Quote by Kamaran Ihsan Salih
Tools quotes by Michael Scott
#32. Reverse psychology is an awesome tool, I don't know if you guys know about it, but basically you can make someone think the opposite of what you believe, and that tricks them into doing something stupid. Works like a charm. #Quote by Michael Scott
Tools quotes by Oscar Auliq-Ice
#33. Where there's confusion, Stick with the tools that work for you and not those that don't. #Quote by Oscar Auliq-Ice
Tools quotes by V. Theia
#34. Lawless stood off to the side, one black boot resting to the wall, the same shade of long coat hanging down by his ankles, his shaved head and ink along his neck giving the only impression needed, he was a mean bastard when he had to be.
He was flipping a silver coin along the backs of his knuckles like he was out for the day and enjoying himself.
Crazy fucker was juiced just waiting for the call to the plate, his bag of tricks sitting at his feet as though he'd brought his gym clothes to work. There was nothing in that bag made for fun, not if you were on the receiving end anyway.
Lawless always had a lot of fun using his tools. #Quote by V. Theia
Tools quotes by Vanna Bonta
#35. Slander is the tool of cowards. #Quote by Vanna Bonta
Tools quotes by Francis Bacon
#36. Observation and experiment for gathering material, induction and deduction for elaborating it: these are are only good intellectual tools. #Quote by Francis Bacon
Tools quotes by Adam Rex
#37. I scattered J.Lo's tools around the car, searching for some kind of rope, or something that could be used like a rope. I should have paid more attention to anything that looked like a pencil sharpener made of lemon Jell-O that, when cranked, would spit out superstrong yarn that smelled like ginger ale. I only mention this because J.Lo really did have such a thing. #Quote by Adam Rex
Tools quotes by Nicholas D. Kristof
#38. four appalling realities of daily life: maternal mortality, human trafficking, sexual violence, and the routine daily discrimination that causes girls to die at far higher rates than boys. The tools to address these challenges include girls' education, family planning, micro-finance, and "empowerment" in every sense. #Quote by Nicholas D. Kristof
Tools quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#39. Dantes examined the various articles shown to him with the same attention that he had bestowed on the curiosities and strange tools exhibited in the shops at Marseilles as the works of the savages in the South Seas from whence they had been brought by the different trading vessels. #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
Tools quotes by Donna J. Haraway
#40. It is not just that science and technology are possible means of great human satisfaction, as well as a matrix of complex dominations. Cyborg imagery can suggest a way out of the maze of dualisms in which we have explained our bodies and our tools to ourselves. #Quote by Donna J. Haraway
Tools quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#41. Schizophrenic pandemic aggression may keep us in the confinement of our physical arrest. Still, if we have no other tools in our shed, we have to grind our teeth, take a deep breath, sharpen our awareness, and use the time to recognize what is essential in life. ("Corporeal prison"). #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Tools quotes by Ivan Illich
#42. Industrial innovations are costly, and managers must justify their high cost by producing measurable proof of their
superiority ... [P]eriodic innovations in goods or tools foster the belief that anything new will be proven better. This belief has become an integral part of the modern world view. It is forgotten that whenever a society lives by this delusion, each marketed unit generates more wants than it satisfies. If new things are made because they are better, then the things most people use are not quite good. New models constantly renovate poverty. The consumer feels the lag between what he has and what he ought to get. He believes that products can be made measurably more valuable and allows himself to be constantly re-educated for their consumption. The "better" replaces the "good" as the fundamental normative concept. #Quote by Ivan Illich
Tools quotes by Banksy
#43. Graffiti is one of the few tools you have if you have almost nothing. And even if you don't come up with a picture to cure world poverty you can make someone smile while they're having a piss. #Quote by Banksy
Tools quotes by Peter Lindbergh
#44. Heartless retouching should not be the chosen tool to represent women in the beginning of this century. #Quote by Peter Lindbergh
Tools quotes by Jeremy Camp
#45. Social media is great because you can get information out there quick or you can use it as a ministry tool, but when you're on it all the time and you're not spending time with people and you're not sitting there looking at someone in the eyes and asking, "How are you doing?" that's when it's out of balance. #Quote by Jeremy Camp
Tools quotes by Jonathan Ive
#46. In our quest to quickly make three-dimensional objects, we can miss out on the experience of making something that helps give us our first understandings of form and material, of the way a material behaves
'I press too hard here, and it breaks here' and so on. Some of the digital rendering tools are impressive, but it's important that people still really try and figure out a way of gaining direct experience with the materials. #Quote by Jonathan Ive
Tools quotes by Jennifer Salaiz
#47. The eyes are one of the most powerful tools a woman can have. With one look, she can relay the most intimate message. After the connection is made, words cease to exist. #Quote by Jennifer Salaiz
Tools quotes by Charlie Munger
#48. The ethical rule is from Samuel Johnson who believed that maintenance of easily removable ignorance by a responsible office holder was treacherous malfeasance in meeting moral obligation. The prudential rule is that underlying the old Warner & Swasey advertisement for machine tools: "The man who needs a new machine tool, and hasn't bought it, is already paying for it". The Warner & Swasey rule also applies, I believe, to thinking tools. If you don't have the right thinking tools, you, and the people you seek to help, are already suffering from your easily removable ignorance. #Quote by Charlie Munger
Tools quotes by Patricia Briggs
#49. There was a movement to my right, and I snuck a quick glance to see Zee and Gabriel coming out the garage door. They must have gone back around. Zee had a crowbar in one hand and held it like another man might hold a sword. Gabriel had
"Zee," I squeaked. "Tell him to put the torque wrench back and grab something that won't cost me five hundred dollars if he hits someone with it."
"Won't cost five hundred," said Zee, but as I glanced over again, he nodded at the white-faced Gabriel, who looked at what he held as if he'd never seen it before. The boy slipped back into the garage as Zee said, "It wouldn't break it - you'd just have to get it recalibrated."
"We have a whole garage worth of tools - pry bars, tire irons, and even a hammer or two. There's got to be something better than my torque wrench he could have grabbed. #Quote by Patricia Briggs
Tools quotes by Jim Gerlach
#50. Since its enactment in the weeks following the September 11 terrorist attacks, the tools in the Patriot Act have been used by law enforcement to stop more than 400 terrorist threats to our families and communities. #Quote by Jim Gerlach
Tools quotes by Eric Greitens
#51. But it's also a human tendency - and a pronounced tendency in America - to become enamored of our tools and lose sight of their place. Think about a couple of the basic functions of any community: educating children and policing the streets. Today we spend huge effort and millions of dollars to bring more technology into the classroom, when the great majority of students in the great majority of circumstances can learn almost all of what they need to know with a supportive family, a pencil, some paper, good books, and a great teacher. The schools that produced Shakespeare and Jefferson and Darwin had some writing materials, some printed books - and that was it. #Quote by Eric Greitens
Tools quotes by Clive Thompson
#52. PowerPoint presentations, the cesspool of data visualization that Microsoft has visited upon the earth. PowerPoint, indeed, is a cautionary tale in our emerging data literacy. It shows that tools matter: Good ones help us think well and bad ones do the opposite. Ever since it was first released in 1990, PowerPoint has become an omnipresent tool for showing charts and info during corporate presentations. #Quote by Clive Thompson
Tools quotes by Evgeny Morozov
#53. There is no doubt that the Internet brims with spamming, scamming and identity fraud. Having someone wipe out your hard drive or bank account has never been easier, and the tools for committing electronic mischief on your enemies are cheap and widely accessible. #Quote by Evgeny Morozov
Tools quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#54. Bros before hoes," said Jared. "By which of course I mean gardening tools, because I hold all the fine ladies of Sorry-in-the-Vale in the highest regard. #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
Tools quotes by Quincy Jones
#55. I have all the tools and gadgets. I tell my son, who's a producer, 'You never work for the machine; the machine works for you.' #Quote by Quincy Jones
Tools quotes by Pedro Okoro
#56. Purpose gives rise to discipline, restraint, and self-control, which are crucial, fundamental tools for success in the journey of life. #Quote by Pedro Okoro
Tools quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#57. Don't neglect these tools in your journey : an eye to look and see and to differentiate flowers from leaves, a mind to comprehend and be focused, ears to listen and hear, a heart to understand what is truly worth our time and what not to give attention to, and a good strength to dare unceasingly in wit and with courage, focusing on only the true factors of the matters that truly matter for distinctive footprints in the end! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Tools quotes by Tom Brown, Jr.
#58. There are paths and ruts in the spirit world as there are in the physical and mental world. One must take the tools of the spirit world and make one's own path rather than exactly follow the paths of those who once were ... You must not seek their path and their understanding, but you must seek your own. The ruts of the spirit are trying to follow others and it cannot be done. #Quote by Tom Brown, Jr.
Tools quotes by Malik Yoba
#59. Drs. Pinkett and Robinson choose to BE the message that they bring! They don't just enumerate the problems but offer solid solutions for navigating pathways to business ownership, and the halls and boardrooms of previously 'all white' corporate America. Black Faces in White Places is a necessary tool for anyone trying to make their own magic happen. #Quote by Malik Yoba
Tools quotes by Ben Lovett
#60. The energy in the banjo, and the beef in the bass. They're good tools to express yourself. #Quote by Ben Lovett
Tools quotes by Jonathan Ive
#61. When our tools are broken, we feel broken. And when somebody fixes one, we feel a tiny bit more whole. #Quote by Jonathan Ive
Tools quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#62. Civilization owes to the Islamic world some of its most important tools and achievements ... the Muslim genius has added much to the culture of all peoples. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Tools quotes by Diane Ackerman
#63. One job of the unconscious is to act as a workshop for rough-shaping ideas; crafting notions as new parts or tools become available; storing observations until something relevant appears in the landscape
generally soaking, simmering, and incubating ideas. Gradually, while combing through its inventory, it finds bits and pieces that create a pattern. When it slips knowledge of that pattern to the conscious mind, it's a surprise, like a telegram slid under the door. #Quote by Diane Ackerman
Tools quotes by Neal Stephenson
#64. Fair or not, Tavistock Prowse would forever be saddled with blame for having allowed his use of high-frequency social media tools to get the better of his higher faculties. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Tools quotes by Kent Beck
#65. I've known people who have not mastered their tools who are good programmers, but not a tool master who remained a mediocre programmer. #Quote by Kent Beck
Tools quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#66. Mass media has convinced us to think that silence is only supposed to happen as a manifestation of supreme actualization, where both parties are so at peace with their emotional connection that it cannot be expressed through the rudimentary tools of the lexicon; otherwise, silence is proof that the magic is gone and the relationship is over (hence the phrase "We just don't talk anymore"). #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Tools quotes by Gerry Spence
#67. If logic and reason, the hard, cold products of the mind, can be relied upon to deliver justice or produce the truth, how is it that these brain-heavy judges rarely agree? Five-to-four decisions are the rule, not the exception. Nearly half of the court must be unjust and wrong nearly half of the time. Each decision, whether the majority or minority, exudes logic and reason like the obfuscating ink from a jellyfish, and in language as opaque. The minority could have as easily become the decision of the court. At once we realize that logic, no matter how pretty and neat, that reason, no matter how seemingly profound and deep, does not necessarily produce truth, much less justice. Logic and reason often become but tools used by those in power to deliver their load of injustice to the people. And ultimate truth, if, indeed, it exists, is rarely recognizable in the endless rows of long words that crowd page after page of most judicial regurgitations. #Quote by Gerry Spence
Tools quotes by Philip Connors
#68. He [Aldo Leopold] recognized that industrial-age tools were incompatible with truly wild country - that roads eventually brought with them streams of tourists and settlers, hotels and gas stations, summer homes and cabins, and a diminishment of land health. He sort of invented the concept of wilderness as we now understand it in America: a stretch of country without roads, where all human movement must happen on foot or horseback. He understood that to keep a little remnant of our continent wild, we had no choice but to exercise restraint. I think it's one of the best ideas our culture ever had, not to mention our best hope for preserving the full diversity of nonhuman life in a few functioning ecosystems. #Quote by Philip Connors
Tools quotes by Donald A. Norman
#69. Simplicity design axiom: The complexity of the information appliance is that of the task, not the tool. The technology is invisible. #Quote by Donald A. Norman
Tools quotes by Florence King
#70. Americans respect talent only insofar as it leads to fame, and we reserve our most fervent admiration for famous people who destroy their lives as well as their talent. The fatal flaws of Elvis, Judy, and Marilyn register much higher on our national applause meter than their living achievements. In Amerca, talent is merely a tool for becoming famous in life so you can become more famous in death - where all are equal. #Quote by Florence King
Tools quotes by John Dewey
#71. A moral principle is not a command to act or to forbear acting in a given way: it is a tool for analyzing a special situation, the right or wrong being determined by the situation in its entirety, not by the rule as such. #Quote by John Dewey
Tools quotes by Ben Sasse
#72. If a free people is going to be reproduced, it will require watering and revivifying and owning anew older traditions and awaking the curiosity in the soul of each citizen. National greatness will not be recovered via a mindless expansion of bureaucratized schooling. Seventy years ago, Dorothy Sayers wrote, 'Sure, we demand another grant of money, we postpone the school leaving age and plan to build bigger and better schools. We demand that teachers further slave conscientiously in and out of school hours. But to what end? I believe,' Sayers lamented, 'all this devoted effort is largely frustrated because we have no definable goal for each child to become a fully formed adult. We have lost the tools of learning, sacrificing them to the piecemeal, subject matter approach of bureaucratized schooling that finally compromises to produce passive rather than active emerging adults. But our kids are not commodities, they are plants. They require a protected environment, and care, and feeding, but most basically, an internal yearning to grow toward the sunlight. What we need is the equipping of each child with those lost tools. #Quote by Ben Sasse
Tools quotes by Chase E.F.  Bolling
#73. Necessity and valor formed the Vanguard. It was born from the courage of all who took up arms against tyranny and all those who decided to stand by our standard. When things began to fall apart, I just used the tools my Creator gave me to improve the lives of my family and the people that choose to follow me. Why allow people to live in fear, poverty, and bondage when I had the tools will and desire to change it? I didn't want to be that servant who buried his talents. My goal is to build a nation that is free, and just, with prosperous and happy people. #Quote by Chase E.F. Bolling
Tools quotes by Albert Einstein
#74. While it is true that an inherently free and scrupulous person may be destroyed, such an individual can never be enslaved or used as a blind tool. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Tools quotes by Edith Wharton
#75. Some men," Flamel irresistibly added, "think of books merely as tools, others as tooling. I'm between the two; there are days when I use them as scenery, other days when I want them as society; so that, as you see, my library represents a makeshift compromise between looks and brains, and the collectors look down on me almost as much as the students. #Quote by Edith Wharton
Tools quotes by Rodrigo Santoro
#76. In film, you're always using your tools, your body, your voice, your emotions, but onstage, you use them in a different way. #Quote by Rodrigo Santoro
Tools quotes by Amy Tan
#77. Language is the tool of my trade -and I use them all - all the Englishes I grew up with #Quote by Amy Tan
Tools quotes by Henry Ford
#78. Wealth is nothing more or less than a tool to do things with. It is like the fuel that runs the furnace or the belt that runs the wheel - only a means to an end. #Quote by Henry Ford
Tools quotes by Michael Lewis
#79. The markets were now run by technology, but the technologists were still treated like tools. Nobody bothered to explain the business to them, but they were forced to adapt to its demands and exposed to its failures - which was, perhaps, why there had been so many more conspicuous failures. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Tools quotes by Minor White
#80. Insight, vision, moments of revelation. During those rare moments something overtakes the man and he becomes the tool of a greater Force; the servant of, willing or unwilling depending on his degree of awakeness. The photograph, then, is a message more than a mirror, and the mans a messenger who happens to be a photographer. #Quote by Minor White
Tools quotes by Robin Hayes
#81. Our law enforcement must be given every tool available to protect children from predators and parents need to know who is living in their community. #Quote by Robin Hayes
Tools quotes by J.D. Vance
#82. We don't study as children, and we don't make our kids study when we're parents. Our kids perform poorly in school. We might get angry with them, but we never give them the tools - like peace and quiet at home - to succeed. #Quote by J.D. Vance
Tools quotes by Sally Hawkins
#83. Characters that are not the norm or a bit out of the ordinary are always a challenge as an actress. You learn more by using different tools for those type of characters. They are always much more fun to play and much more interesting. They take you places that you wouldn't necessarily go in your everyday life. #Quote by Sally Hawkins
Tools quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#84. Man can hardly be defined, after the fashion of Carlyle, as an animal who makes tools; ants and beavers and many other animals make tools, in the sense that they make an apparatus. Man can be defined as an animal that makes dogmas. As he piles doctrine on doctrine and conclusion on conclusion in the formation of some tremendous scheme of philosophy and religion, he is, in the only legitimate sense of which the expression is capable, becoming more and more human. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Tools quotes by Steven Brust
#85. The creation of powerful magical tools, generally, is the result of one of three things: the desire to impress a lover; an accident while trying to create something else entirely; or a side project created to assist while working toward something considered more significant by the creator. #Quote by Steven Brust
Tools quotes by Nora Roberts
#86. It was a lie, of course, and she was prepared to confess it to her priest. But she'd be damned if she'd tell him she'd been playing with his music.
Her pride was worth the penance.
He felt a quiver in his heart that he took for sympathy. "There, Brenna darling. Have you gone and fallen in love on me?"
She jerked, whirled, gaped at him. He was watching her with such - such bloody affection, such patience and sympathy. She could have beaten him black and blue. Instead, she just shoved clear of him and snatched up her toolbox. "Shawn Gallagher, you are truly a great idiot of a man."
With her nose in the air and her tools clanking, she stalked out.
He only shook his head, then went back to his cleaning up. With that little quiver around his heart again, he wondered who it was that O'Toole had set her sights on.
Whoever, Shawn thought, slamming a cupboard door just a little too forcefully, the man had better be worthy of her. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Tools quotes by Clint Eastwood
#87. You have to teach yourself to act but Michael Chekhov will give you the necessary tools - and for me, Psychological Gesture and Centers are extremely valuable They work like a charm. I've used them all along and still do. #Quote by Clint Eastwood
Tools quotes by Rachel Lundy
#88. The hard days that you face are not without purpose. They may be the very tools that the Lord wants to use in your life to bring you closer to Him, to teach you obedience, and to teach you to delight in His precious and priceless Word. #Quote by Rachel Lundy
Tools quotes by Debasish Mridha
#89. Problems are not roadblocks, but exercise tools. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Tools quotes by Brian Eno
#90. The tools are evolving, and people's interests are evolving as well. So, suddenly people like to hear bands, people like Devendra Banhart or the xx, bands that make a kind of virtue of sloppiness. That isn't what they would describe what they're doing, but the fact is they make a virtue of the sort of hand-made nature of what they're doing. #Quote by Brian Eno
Tools quotes by Jack Dorsey
#91. Meet customers where they are; question how to make the tools customers use more valuable, #Quote by Jack Dorsey
Tools quotes by Jeff Raikes
#92. Enterprise search is becoming an indispensable tool to businesses of all sizes, helping people to find, use and share critical business information quickly. #Quote by Jeff Raikes
Tools quotes by Jay Maisel
#93. You have to pick the right tool for the point you're trying to make and there is no one solution. #Quote by Jay Maisel
Tools quotes by Martin Seligman
#94. Optimism is a tool with a certain clear set of benefits: it fights depression, it promotes achievement and produces better health. #Quote by Martin Seligman
Tools quotes by John Kuprenas
#95. Working from the familiar will either point down the path to a solution, or it will suggest the new tools and understandings that need to be developed. #Quote by John Kuprenas
Tools quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#96. The immappable world of our journey. A pass in the mountains. A bloodstained stone. The marks of steel upon it. Names carved in the corrosible lime among stone fishes and ancient shells. Things dimmed and dimming. The dry sea floor. The tools of migrant hunters. The dreams encased upon the blades of them. The peregrine bones of a prophet. The silence. The gradual extinction of rain. The coming of night. #Quote by Cormac McCarthy
Tools quotes by Ben Parr
#97. Google has placed its faith in data, while Apple worships the power of design. This dichotomy made the two companies complementary. Apple would ship the phones and computers, while Google would provide Maps, Search, YouTube, and other web tools that made the devices more useful. #Quote by Ben Parr
Tools quotes by Pyotr Kropotkin
#98. The means of production being the collective work of humanity, the product should be the collective property of the race. Individual appropriation is neither just nor serviceable. All belongs to all. All things are for all men, since all men have need of them, since all men have worked in the measure of their strength to produce them, and since it is not possible to evaluate every one's part in the production of the world's wealth.
All things are for all. Here is an immense stock of tools and implements; here are all those iron slaves which we call machines, which saw and plane, spin and weave for us, unmaking and remaking, working up raw matter to produce the marvels of our time. But nobody has the right to seize a single one of these machines and say, "This is mine; if you want to use it you must pay me a tax on each of your products," any more than the feudal lord of medieval times had the right to say to the peasant, "This hill, this meadow belong to me, and you must pay me a tax on every sheaf of corn you reap, on every rick you build."
All is for all! If the man and the woman bear their fair share of work, they have a right to their fair share of all that is produced by all, and that share is enough to secure them well-being. No more of such vague formulas as "The Right to work," or "To each the whole result of his labour." What we proclaim is The Right to Well-Being: Well-Being for All! #Quote by Pyotr Kropotkin
Tools quotes by Adriana Trigiani
#99. At long last, somebody believes in her. Tonight in this exchange she has gained the tools with which she will build her self esteem: She has been chosen and she has security. Maybe this is all that a person ever needs to succeed. Pearl has been picked, and that has begun to define her. #Quote by Adriana Trigiani
Tools quotes by Alfonso Cuaron
#100. Technology is technology. Technology doesn't have a, it is not good or bad. Technologies are tools. #Quote by Alfonso Cuaron
Tools quotes by E. E. Cummings
#101. My mind is
a big hunk of irrevocable nothing which touch and taste and smell
and hearing and sight keep hitting and chipping with sharp fatal
in an agony of sensual chisels i perform squirms of chrome and ex
-ecute strides of cobalt
nevertheless i
feel that i cleverly am being altered that i slightly am becoming
something a little different, in fact
hereupon helpless i utter lilac shrieks and scarlet bellowings #Quote by E. E. Cummings
Tools quotes by Kai Greene
#102. The weight is just a tool. Do you focus on the hammer or the nail? You better focus on the thing you're trying to hit. #Quote by Kai Greene
Tools quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#103. Dwayne's bad chemicals made him take a loaded thirty-eight caliber revolver from under his pillow and stick it in his mouth. This was a tool whose only purpose was to make holes in human beings. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Tools quotes by Orson Scott Card
#104. We're all tools in somebody's kit. But that doesn't mean we can't make tools out o other people. Or figure our interesting things to use ourselves for. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Tools quotes by Brian Kernighan
#105. The most effective debugging tool is still careful thought, coupled with judiciously placed print statements. #Quote by Brian Kernighan
Tools quotes by Rumi

On Resurrection Day God will say, "What did you do with the strength and energy

your food gave you on earth? How did you use your eyes?
What did you make with

your five senses while they were dimming and playing out?
I gave you hands and feet

as tools for preparing the ground for planting. Did you, in the health I gave,

do the plowing?" You will not be able to stand when you hear those questions. You

will bend double, and finally acknowledge the glory. God will say, "Lift

your head and answer the questions." Your head will rise a little, then slump

again. "Look at me! Tell what you've done." You try, but you fall back flat

as a snake. "I want every detail. Say!" Eventually you will be able to get to

a sitting position. "Be plain and clear. I have given you such gifts. What did

you do with them?" You turn to the right looking to the prophet for help, as

though to say, I am stuck in the mud of my life. Help me out of this! They

will answer, those kings, "The time for helping is past. The plow stands there in

the field. You should have used it. "Then you turn to the left, where your family

is, and they will say, "Don't look at us! This conversation is between you and your

creator." Then you pray the prayer that is the essence of every ritual: God,

I have no hope. I am #Quote by Rumi
Tools quotes by Scott Lynch
#107. We're a different sort of thief here, Lamora. Deception and misdirection are our tools. We don't believe in hard work when a false face and a good line of bullshit can do so much more. #Quote by Scott Lynch
Tools quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#108. BELOVED fellow-servants of Christ, our work requires us to be in the best possible condition of heart. When we are at our best, we are feeble enough; we would not, therefore, fall below our highest point. As instruments, we owe all our power for usefulness to the Divine hand; but, since tools should always be kept in order, we would have our spirit free from rust, and our mind sharp of point and keen of edge to answer at once to the Master's will. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Tools quotes by Walter Murch
#109. The word processor is a better tool than a quill pen because you can do so much more with it, but on the other hand, what you have to say and how you say it is the ultimate determination. #Quote by Walter Murch
Tools quotes by Dave Bruno
#110. My desire to live a meaningful life was getting forestalled by the petty, day-to-day demands of all my stuff.
As I stood in my garage, I realized that it was not just that all the stuff created a mess, requiring valuable time to clean up. That was true, but that wasn't the worst of it. I realized it was not the clutter, the over accumulation of things, but rather the things themselves that were taking my attention away from what mattered in my life. Camping gear was getting my attention, not being outside. Tools were taking up my time, not using them to be creative. Toys were distracting me from the fun of playing. My things were not doing what they were meant to do: serve a greater purpose than possession alone. #Quote by Dave Bruno
Tools quotes by Marshall B. Rosenberg
#111. NVC gives us tools and understanding to create a more peaceful state of mind. #Quote by Marshall B. Rosenberg
Tools quotes by Colin Greenwood
#112. Coltrane would do what you'd get a Roland Pro Tools module to do but with a group of jazz musicians. #Quote by Colin Greenwood
Tools quotes by Vincent Laforet
#113. Stay open to as many new tools and think of as many ways you can to utilize them to your advantage. This not only includes equipment and hardware but also software or apps like Sun Seeker and social media outlets like Instagram and Twitter to build community. #Quote by Vincent Laforet
Tools quotes by Jose N Harris
#114. I have found that the tools for my trade- writing, are very basic: paper, a pen, time, food and perhaps a little tequila... #Quote by Jose N Harris
Tools quotes by Peter Santos
#115. Judgment…is one of the ego's tools to foster separation through comparison. #Quote by Peter Santos
Tools quotes by Peter Jackson
#116. Motion-capture is not a genre. Motion-capture is a tool and technique and what we tried to do was to really use both motion-capture and traditional animation to build a system. #Quote by Peter Jackson
Tools quotes by Bruce Lee
#117. Develop the tools, refine the tools, then dissolve the tools. #Quote by Bruce Lee
Tools quotes by George Herbert
#118. A bad workman quarrels with his tools. #Quote by George Herbert
Tools quotes by Noah Feldman
#119. Cyber attacks are not what makes the cool war 'cool.' As a strategic matter, they do not differ fundamentally from older tools of espionage and sabotage. #Quote by Noah Feldman
Tools quotes by Richard Armitage
#120. The war we are fighting today against terrorism is a multifaceted fight. We have to use every tool in our toolkit to wage this war - diplomacy, finance, intelligence, law enforcement, and of course, military power - and we are developing new tools as we go along. #Quote by Richard Armitage
Tools quotes by Joel Kinnaman
#121. If you think back to the moments when you've gone through the most pain in your life, or the most severe anxiety, your body is very much involved in that. Your body is expressing those emotions. So, when we, as actors, try to access those feelings, the body is a great tool to use. #Quote by Joel Kinnaman
Tools quotes by Nicholas Murray Butler
#122. The analytical geometry of Descartes and the calculus of Newton and Leibniz have expanded into the marvelous mathematical method-more daring than anything that the history of philosophy records-of Lobachevsky and Riemann, Gauss and Sylvester. Indeed, mathematics, the indispensable tool of the sciences, defying the senses to follow its splendid flights, is demonstrating today, as it never has been demonstrated before, the supremacy of the pure reason. #Quote by Nicholas Murray Butler
Tools quotes by Iva Kenaz
#123. You are the author of your life. So please don't let anyone including yourself make you think otherwise. If you feel like you don't like how your story goes, just write it differently. You have the tools, the courage, the power…you have it all! #Quote by Iva Kenaz
Tools quotes by Atul Gawande
#124. Checklists turn out ... to be among the basic tools of the quality and productivity revolution in aviation, engineering, construction - in virtually every field combining high risk and complexity. Checklists seem lowly and simplistic, but they help fill in for the gaps in our brains and between our brains. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Tools quotes by Felix Frankfurter
#125. All our work, our whole life is a matter of semantics, because words are the tools with which we work, the material out of which laws are made, out of which the Constitution was written. Everything depends on our understanding of them. #Quote by Felix Frankfurter
Tools quotes by Mercedes Lackey
#126. Still, she assured herself as she unpacked her suitcase on the bed, Marx wrote his Manifesto one word at a time, with but pen and ink. Modest tools that moved a world! So shall we. #Quote by Mercedes Lackey
Tools quotes by R.L. LaFevers
#127. His divine spark lives within me, a presence that will never leave. And I am but one of many tools He has at His disposal. If I cannot act - if I refuse to act - that is a choice I am allowed to make. He has given me life, and all I must do to serve Him is to live. Fully and with my whole heart. With this knowledge comes a true understanding of all the gifts He has given me. #Quote by R.L. LaFevers
Tools quotes by Eugene V. Debs
#128. As long as he owns your tools he owns your job, and if he owns your job he is the master of your fate. You are in no sense a free man. You are subject to his interest and to his will. He decides whether you shall work or not. Therefore, he decides whether you shall live or die. And in that humiliating position any one who tries to persuade you that you are a free man is guilty of insulting your intelligence. #Quote by Eugene V. Debs
Tools quotes by Hal Finney
#129. The computer can be used as a tool to liberate and protect people, rather than to control them. #Quote by Hal Finney
Tools quotes by Marisha Pessl
#130. I thus concluded, with the same awe of Jane Goodall discovering the chimpanzees' nimble use of tools to extract termites, it really wasn't so much the tragic event itself, but others having knowledge of it that prevented recovery. #Quote by Marisha Pessl
Tools quotes by William Sadler
#131. In theater, there's a lot of discipline involved in doing eight shows a week for a year and a half. It's nice to be able to bring some of that bag of tools with you over to the film world, where you don't have the rehearsal, you don't have an audience. You don't have a month of rehearsal to examine these words, and you meet the guy who's going to play your brother the morning that you shoot the scene. So you need a bag of tools. #Quote by William Sadler
Tools quotes by Tamra Davis
#132. I understand that in some families both parents have to work, so the kids are home alone eating more processed foods. But if the kids know how to make oatmeal or eggs in the morning or pasta or a lentil soup at night - we're giving them real survival tools. #Quote by Tamra Davis
Tools quotes by Margaret Atwood
#133. Human tool-makers always make tools that will help us get what we want, and what we want hasn't changed for thousands of years because as far as we can tell the human template hasn't changed either. We still want the purse that will always be filled with gold, and the Fountain of Youth. We want the table that will cover itself with delicious food whenever we say the word, and that will be cleaned up afterwards by invisible servants. We want the Seven-League Boots so we can travel very quickly, and the Hat of Darkness so we can snoop on other people without being seen. We want the weapon that will never miss, and the castle that will keep us safe. We want excitement and adventure; we want routine and security. We want to have a large number of sexually attractive partners, and we also want those we love to love us in return, and be utterly faithful to us. We want cute, smart children who will treat us with the respect we deserve. We want to be surrounded by music, and by ravishing scents and attractive visual objects. We don't want to be too hot or too cold. We want to dance. We want to speak with the animals. We want to be envied. We want to be immortal. We want to be gods.
But in addition, we want wisdom and justice. We want hope. We want to be good. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Tools quotes by Noam Chomsky
#134. [A]s long as individuals are compelled to rent themselves on the market to those who are willing to hire them, as long as their role in production is simply that of ancillary tools, then there are striking elements of coercion and oppression that make talk of democracy very limited, if meaningful. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Tools quotes by Derek Hansen
#135. Passionate users of social media tools such as email, blogs, microblogs, and wikis #Quote by Derek Hansen
Tools quotes by Leah Hager Cohen
#136. For why are we here if not to try to fathom one another? Not through facts alone, but with the full extent of our imaginations. And what are stories if not tools for imagining? #Quote by Leah Hager Cohen
Tools quotes by Steven Brust
#137. The tools are real. The viewer is real, you, the artist, is real and a part of everything you paint. You connect yourself to the viewer by sharing something that is inside of you that connects with something inside of him. All you have as your guide is that you know what moves you. All you have to do it with is a brush, some chemical and canvas, and technique. #Quote by Steven Brust
Tools quotes by Isaac Marion
#138. My response must be delicate but words are crude tools, prone to breaking what they're meant to repair. So I keep my mouth shut. #Quote by Isaac Marion
Tools quotes by Douglas M. Jones III
#139. There comes a point when careful argumentation fails, a time when we are "casting pearls before swine." As Proverbs tells us: "Don't answer a fool according to his folly, lest you also be like him" (Prov. 26:4). Reason is wasted. Other tools must come to play. And humor can penetrate deeply where arguments get clogged. Humor can shake us out of our own mental cave and force us to see our silliness from another person's angle. #Quote by Douglas M. Jones III
Tools quotes by Ai Weiwei
#140. Twitter is the people's tool, the tool of the ordinary people, people who have no other resources. #Quote by Ai Weiwei
Tools quotes by Jason Aldean
#141. Records are one thing, and obviously, without hit songs, you don't have the opportunity to do your shows. But my live show has always been my selling tool. #Quote by Jason Aldean
Tools quotes by Charlie Day
#142. As an actor, I think every moment in your life is giving you a new set of tools. You're constantly absorbing new information that you can put back onto the screen. #Quote by Charlie Day
Tools quotes by Daniel Alarcon
#143. Radio, or at least the kind of radio we're proposing to do, can cut through that. It can reach people who would otherwise never hear your work, and of course I find that very notion inspiring. Radio stories are powerful because the human voice is powerful. It has been and will continue to be the most basic element of storytelling. As a novelist (and I should note that working my novel is the first thing I do in the morning and the very last thing I do before I sleep), shifting into this new medium is entirely logical. It's still narrative, only with different tools. #Quote by Daniel Alarcon
Tools quotes by Ruben Hinojosa
#144. A person's credit report is one of the most important tools consumers can use to maintain their financial security and credit rating, but for so long many did not know how to obtain one, or what to do with the information it provided. #Quote by Ruben Hinojosa
Tools quotes by Nicholas D. Kristof
#145. Let me be clear: I'm a believer in a robust military, which is essential for backing up diplomacy. But the implication is that we need a balanced tool chest of diplomatic and military tools alike. Instead, we have a billionaire military and a pauper diplomacy. The U.S. military now has more people in its marching bands than the State Department has in its foreign service - and that's preposterous. #Quote by Nicholas D. Kristof
Tools quotes by Eric Hoffer
#146. The Paleolithic hunters who painted the unsurpassed animal murals on the ceiling of the cave at Altamira had only rudimentary tools. Art is older than production for use, and play older than work. Man was shaped less by what he had to do than by what he did in playful moments. It is the child in man that is the source of his uniqueness and creativeness, and the playground is the optimal milieu for the unfolding of his capacities. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Tools quotes by Nicola Morgan
#147. Punctuation is a fabulous tool for controlling your reader - you even get to control where they breathe. That's what I call power! #Quote by Nicola Morgan

#148. Yes; I am a supercargo; pen, ink, and paper are my tools, and without my tools I am fit for nothing. #Quote by Alexandre Dumas

#149. The book also includes tools including Website Resources, Baby Feeding/Diaper Schedule, Mom Medicine Schedule, Baby Clothes Size Chart, Baby Sitter Sheet, Short Hospital Bag Checklist, After Recovery Kit, Baby Medicine Basket Items, and 10 Things to Know When Traveling with a baby. #Quote by Lisa M. Rusczyk
Tools quotes by Margaret Wertheim
#150. Computers are very powerful tools, but in the simulated world of the computer, everything has to be calculated. #Quote by Margaret Wertheim
Tools quotes by Jim Highsmith
#151. rinciples, or "rules" in complexity theory terminology, affect how tools and practices are implemented. Practices are how principles are acted out. Grand principles that generate no action are mere vapor. Conversely, specific practices in the absence of guiding principles are often inappropriately used. Although the use of agile practices may vary from team to team, the principles are constant. Principles are the simple rules of complex human adaptive systems. #Quote by Jim Highsmith
Tools quotes by Darryl Donaghue
#152. The plunge was easier than the pull. The serrated edge caught the flaps of skin on the way out. It wasn't the nature of the blade; he'd chosen specific tools for the torture and wasn't about to skimp on the final cut. Most would have picked the sharpest. The sharpest would allow smooth entry both into and out of the body. He'd used the sharpest on the torso; four quick stabs just above the waist and one to pierce his side. No water; only blood. This final task required a specific tool and he'd chosen a bread knife. It'd been used for that too; winter soups with a rustic loaf, hearty bacon sandwiches in the family home. Use only a little pressure, move it back and forth, letting the edge do the work. That was the easy way to do it, but this wasn't #Quote by Darryl Donaghue
Tools quotes by David Bowie
#153. When you are an artist you can turn your hand to anything, in any style. Once you have the tools then all the artforms are the same in the end. #Quote by David Bowie
Tools quotes by Dan Buettner
#154. Exercise, from a public health perspective, is an unmitigated failure. The world's longest-lived people live in environments that nudge them into more movement. They don't use power tools, they do their own yard work, they grow a garden. #Quote by Dan Buettner
Tools quotes by Dominic O'Brien
#155. This is a great tool for students as the book gets right to the heart of learning how to learn and engaging your whole brain. #Quote by Dominic O'Brien
Tools quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#156. Spheres are indeed fertile theoretical tools that help us gain insight into all manner of astrophysical problems. But one should not be a sphere-zealot. I am reminded of the half-serious joke about how to increase milk production on a farm: An expert in animal husbandry might say, "Consider the role of the cow's diet..." An engineer might say, "Consider the design of the milking machines..." But it's the astrophysicist who says, "Consider a spherical cow... #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Tools quotes by Robert Hooke
#157. By the help of microscopes, there is nothing so small, as to escape our inquiry; hence there is a new visible world discovered to the understanding. #Quote by Robert Hooke
Tools quotes by Richie Hawtin
#158. Electronic music is innately tied to the technology used to create it - as the tools evolve, so will the art. #Quote by Richie Hawtin
Tools quotes by Robert Murray M'Cheyne
#159. Every wise workman takes his tools away from the work from time to time that they may be ground and sharpened; so does the only-wise Jehovah take his ministers oftentimes away into darkness and loneliness and trouble, that he may sharpen and prepare them for harder work in his service. #Quote by Robert Murray M'Cheyne
Tools quotes by Shakira
#160. I'm a firm believer that education is the most efficient tool we have to make people aware and make our children aware, and to protect them from the scourge of the century, which is AIDS #Quote by Shakira
Tools quotes by Felicia Day
#161. We WILL reach our creative goals if we persist. Stay focused. Look to allies for support. And use the tools in this book to cut off enemies when they start to spring with their cheery "Heyo! Care to hear how much you suck?" voices. #Quote by Felicia Day
Tools quotes by Bill Gates
#162. In poor countries, we still need better ways to measure the effectiveness of the many government workers providing health services. They are the crucial link bringing tools such as vaccines and education to the people who need them most. How well trained are they? Are they showing up to work? #Quote by Bill Gates
Tools quotes by Lao-Tzu
#163. 31 against war
Weapons are unhappy tools,
not chosen by thoughtful people,
to be used only when there is no choice,
and with a calm, still mind,
without enjoyment.
To enjoy using weapons
is to enjoy killing people,
and to enjoy killing people
is to lose your share in the common good ... #Quote by Lao-Tzu
Tools quotes by Peter Drucker
#164. Production is not the application of tools to materials, but logic to work. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Tools quotes by Robert Mark Silverman And Kelly L. Patterson
#165. Darwin's work is a testament to the power of two of the most basic tools used in research, the pencil and paper. #Quote by Robert Mark Silverman And Kelly L. Patterson
Tools quotes by Adrian Frutiger
#166. If you remember the shape of your spoon at lunch, it has to be the wrong shape. The spoon and the letter are tools; one to take food from the bowl, the other to take information off the page ... When it is a good design, the reader has to feel comfortable because the letter is both banal and beautiful. #Quote by Adrian Frutiger
Tools quotes by Murray D. Lincoln
#167. People have within their own hands the tools to fashion their own destiny. #Quote by Murray D. Lincoln
Tools quotes by Susan Mann
#168. The use of online assessment tools is giving teachers a more fine-grained understanding of individual students' skills, and assisting them to determine the necessary next steps to enable them to achieve their own learning goals. We are seeing more effective differentiation in classrooms as a result. #Quote by Susan Mann
Tools quotes by Michelle Obama
#169. We don't need new discoveries or new inventions to reverse this trend. We have the tools at our disposal to reverse it. All we need is the motivation, the opportunity and the willpower to do what needs to be done ... With this report, we have a very solid road map that we need to make these goals real, to solve this problem within a generation. #Quote by Michelle Obama
Tools quotes by Jim Hunt
#170. Who knows what technology will emerge in the next five years, let alone 20. Yet the education we provide our children now is supposed to last for decades. We cannot train them for jobs that do not even exist yet, but we can provide them with the minds and tools they'll need to adapt to our ever-changing set of circumstances. #Quote by Jim Hunt
Tools quotes by Irvin D. Yalom
#171. It's not ideas, nor vision, nor tools that truly matter in therapy. If you debrief patients at the end of therapy about the process, what do they remember? Never the ideas - it's always the relationship. #Quote by Irvin D. Yalom
Tools quotes by Marilyn Ferguson
#172. Before we choose our tools and technology, we must choose our dreams and values, for some technologies serve them, while others make them more unobtainable. #Quote by Marilyn Ferguson
Tools quotes by Paul Horn
#173. Jazz is a way of life, and you have to learn about it on the street, so to speak. But the training comes in by giving you the tools to work with. #Quote by Paul Horn
Tools quotes by Rod Carew
#174. Our commitment to coaches will be realized via TeamCarew, a grassroots marketing program that will provide them with insight and tools to teach the art and science of hitting. #Quote by Rod Carew

Tools quotes by Tinashe
#176. I'm the type of person that doesn't like to wait for people to do things for me, and I never want to feel stuck. Why sit around and be like, 'I wish my label would book me some studio time,' if I can just buy my own studio equipment and figure out how to run Pro Tools and record it myself? #Quote by Tinashe
Tools quotes by Melody Beattie
#177. Gratitude isn't a tool to manipulate the universe or God. It's a way to acknowledge our faith that everything happens for a reason even if we don't know what that reason is. ~Melody Beattie, 52 Weeks of Conscious Contact, pg. 34. #Quote by Melody Beattie
Tools quotes by Kenneth E. Iverson
#178. The properties of executability and universality associated with programming languages can be combined, in a single language, with the well-known properties of mathematical notation which make it such an effective tool of thought. #Quote by Kenneth E. Iverson
Tools quotes by Octavia Butler
#179. Most of what I do is science fiction. Some of the things I do are fantasy. I don't like the labels, they're marketing tools, and I certainly don't worry about them when I'm writing. They are also inhibiting factors; you wind up not getting read by certain people, or not getting sold to certain people because they think they know what you write. You say science fiction and everybody thinks Star Wars or Star Trek. #Quote by Octavia Butler
Tools quotes by Max Gladstone
#180. A page lay on his desk. His fingers held a pen. With these tools he built a world. Perhaps the world he built lived behind his eyes and was transmitted to the page by the instrument of ink, or else it lived beneath the page somehow, his pen's progress sculpting form out of a purer white than sculptor's marble. #Quote by Max Gladstone
Tools quotes by Debra Lyn Pickman
#181. One of the most important tools he taught me was to look at things from different perspectives. That no matter what I saw, someone else could see things
differently, and that I needed to see things from all vantage points in order to see a situation clearly. #Quote by Debra Lyn Pickman
Tools quotes by Billy Higgins
#182. If I couldn't do it, then I'd be defeated. I've got the tools to do it. I never did question my tools. #Quote by Billy Higgins
Tools quotes by Terri Windling
#183. Rites–of–passage stories…were cherished in pre–literate societies not only for their entertainment value, but also as mythic tools to prepare young men and women for life's ordeals. A wealth of such stories can be found marking each major transition in the human life cycle: puberty, marriage, childbirth, menopause, death. Other rites–of–passage, less predictable but equally transformative, include times of sudden change and calamity such as illness and injury, the loss of one's home, the death of a loved one, etc. These are the times when we wake, like Dante, to find ourselves in a deep, dark wood - an image that in Jungian psychology represents an inward journey. Rites–of–passage tales point to the hidden roads that lead out of the dark again - and remind us that at the end of the journey we're not the same person as when we started. Ascending from the Netherworld (that grey landscape of illness, grief, depression, or despair), we are 'twice–born' in our return to life, carrying seeds - new wisdom, ideas, creativity and fecundity of spirit. #Quote by Terri Windling
Tools quotes by Myron Scholes
#184. All models have faults - that doesn't mean you can't use them as tools for making decisions. #Quote by Myron Scholes
Tools quotes by Michael A. Stackpole
#185. On Dantooine, when Mara made me stop using the Force like a crutch, I had a
lot of time to think about things. I realized I was using the force too much.
Uncle Luke uses it like an advisor, or sometimes a power source. Others use it
like a vibroblade, some like an opinion poll, and others yet like a whole
variety of tools. I thought all about that, and I guess I chose to follow in
Uncle Luke's footsteps."
-Anakin #Quote by Michael A. Stackpole
Tools quotes by Agnes Repplier
#186. Edged tools are dangerous things to handle, and not infrequently do much hurt. #Quote by Agnes Repplier
Tools quotes by Eli Brown
#187. It matters not what language a man speaks; he holds a pen, he holds a plow, he holds a gun in exactly the same manner. We are all children of our tools. #Quote by Eli Brown
Tools quotes by Joyce Meyer
#188. There are times when God leaves huge question marks as tools in our lives to stretch our our faith. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Tools quotes by John Ruskin
#189. You must either make a tool of the creature, or a man of him. You cannot make both. Men were not intended to work with the accuracy of tools, to be precise and perfect in all their actions. If you will have that precision out of them, and make their fingers measure degrees like cog-wheels, and their arms strike curves like compasses, you must unhumanize them. All the energy of their spirits must be given to make cogs and compasses of themselves ... .On the other hand, if you will make a man of the working creature, you cannot make him a tool. Let him but begin to imagine, to think, to try to do anything worth doing; and the engine-turned precision is lost at once. Out come all his roughness, all his dulness, all his incapability; shame upon shame, failure upon failure, pause after pause: but out comes the whole majesty of him also; and we know the height of it only when we see the clouds settling upon him. #Quote by John Ruskin
Tools quotes by Laurier Rochon
#190. This could seem counterintuitive for many dictators running communist or socialist single-party states, but a thriving private tech industry can contribute invaluable tools to help you implement a controllable internet. The reason is fairly simple: the technologies that transform internet applications into more personalized, efficient and enjoyable experiences are usually the same ones that increase the capacity to monitor its users. #Quote by Laurier Rochon
Tools quotes by John Ruskin
#191. Men were not intended to work with the accuracy of tools, to be precise and perfect in all their actions. #Quote by John Ruskin
Tools quotes by Sylvia Clare
#192. Intuition comes in several forms:
- a sudden flash of insight, visual or auditory
- a predictive dream
- a spinal shiver of recognition as something is occurring or told to you
- a sense of knowing something already
- a sense of deja vu
- a snapshot image of a future scene or event
- knowledge, perspective or understanding divined from tools which respond to the subconscious mind #Quote by Sylvia Clare
Tools quotes by Stephanie Miller
#193. Could you do a liberal propaganda tool that would bore the bejesus out of people? No. #Quote by Stephanie Miller
Tools quotes by Matthew Woodring Stover
#194. It may be there's such a thing as a tool than can't be used as a weapon, but I've never met one. #Quote by Matthew Woodring Stover
Tools quotes by Tony Kushner
#195. The fear of a work becoming dated is one of the most effective tools for keeping people from writing political work. #Quote by Tony Kushner
Tools quotes by Mallory Ortberg
#196. A child is not a bargaining chip or a learning tool. Your focus, if you adopt a child of a different race, should be on nurturing and protecting your child from bigotry, not deploying him or her as an anti-racist Mr. Fix-It. #Quote by Mallory Ortberg
Tools quotes by Adriana Trigiani
#197. There's nothing an artist needs more - even more than excellent tools and stamina - than a deadline. #Quote by Adriana Trigiani
Tools quotes by David A. Bednar
#198. I believe the time has come for us as disciples of Christ to use these inspired tools appropriately and more effectively to testify of God the Eternal Father, His plan of happiness for His children, and His Son, Jesus Christ, as the Savior of the world; to proclaim the reality of the Restoration of the gospel in the latter days; and to accomplish the Lord's work. #Quote by David A. Bednar
Tools quotes by John Maeda
#199. Skill in the digital age is confused with mastery of digital tools, masking the importance of understanding materials and mastering the elements of form. #Quote by John Maeda
Tools quotes by Jeff Cooper
#200. At long last I have discovered that most shooters are not interested in firearms as tools, but rather as toys. Such people do not acquire their weapons because of what they will do, but rather to gratify the "Christmas morning joy" that we largely left behind in our childhood. #Quote by Jeff Cooper
