The immemorial ingratitude of rulers and commonwealths is proverbial. Especially common is ingratitude to Israel the People that has achieved so much of eternal worth, but has rarely succeeded in winning gratitude.
I formed the hypothesis that each of us could have achieved our objectives without the terrible loss of life. And I wanted to test that by going to Vietnam.Robert McNamara
Some Blockett-type employees actually believe that they have received a genuine promotion; others recognize the truth. But the main function of a pseudo-promotion is to deceive people outside the hierarchy. When this is achieved, the maneuver is counted a success.Laurence J. Peter
Whatever his merits as an economist, Hume's place as one of the foremost exponents of capitalism is clearly established. His views on the landed interest and his recognition of self-interest and his desire for accumulation as the driving forces of economic activity in his time helped to consolidate the forces that were struggling to add political power to the economic supremacy which they had already achieved.roll, eric, baron roll of ipsden
Light enhances but its shadow deletes, thus giving the picture its depth, its third dimension and its subtractive properties… I believe that commitment and technical skill can be achieved by means of one’s own will and study , while fantasy and passion are more valuable because they are innate and inescapably peculiar assets.augusto de luca
There is no such thing as an achieved liberty; like electricity, there can be no substantial storage and it must be generated as it is enjoyed, or the lights go out.robert h. jackson
Sappho is a great poet because she is a lesbian, which gives her erotic access to the Muse. Sappho and the homosexual-tending Emily Dickinson stand alone above women poets, because poetry's mystical energies are ruled by a hierach requiring the sexual subordination of her petitioners. Women have achieved more as novelists than as poets because the social novel operates outside the ancient marriage of myth and eroticism.camille paglia

Because you love me I have much achieved, Had you despised me then I must have failed , But since I knew you trusted and believed , I could not disappoint you and so prevailed.
Industrial production, the flow of resources in the economy, the exertion of military effort in a war theater-all are complexes of numerous interrelated activities. Differences may exist in the goals to be achieved, the particular processes involved, and the magnitude of effort. Nevertheless, it is possible to abstract the underlying essential similarities in the management of these seemingly disparate systems.george dantzig
My practice as a scientist is atheistic. That is to say, when I set up an experiment I assume that no god, angel, or devil is going to interfere with its course; and this assumption has been justified by such success as I have achieved in my professional career. I should therefore be intellectually dishonest if I were not also atheistic in the affairs of the world.j. b. s. haldane
Research! Research! A mere excuse for idleness; it has never achieved, and will never achieve any results of the slightest value.Benjamin Jowett
To care for the quarrels of the past, to identify oneself passionately with a cause that became, politically speaking, a losing cause with the birth of the modern world, is to experience a kind of straining against reality, a rebellious nonconformity that, again, is rare in America, where children are instructed in the virtues of the system they live under, as though history had achieved a happy ending in American civics.mary mccarthy
Unlike Christianity, which preached a peace that it never achieved, Islam unashamedly came with a sword.steven runciman
But the answer to the attacks must be more democracy and more openness. Otherwise, those who were behind them will have achieved their goals.jens stoltenberg
Social security must be achieved by co-operation between the State and the individual . The State should offer security for service and contribution. The State in organising security should not stifle incentive, opportunity, responsibility:;; in establishing a national minimum, it should leave room and encouragement for voluntary action by each individual to provide more than that minimum for himself and his family .
Success always obsoletes the very behavior that achieved it.Peter Drucker
The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design. To the naive mind that can conceive of order only as the product of deliberate arrangement, it may seem absurd that in complex conditions order, and adaptation to the unknown, can be achieved more effectively by decentralizing decisions and that a division of authority will actually extend the possibility of overall order. Yet that decentralization actually leads to more information being taken into account.friedrich hayek
As far as domestic democracy, all here present know that democracy means government of the people by the people. While we agree that consultation and participation are essential to every democracy, this is seldom achieved in practice.alfred de zayas
...la perfection soit atteinte non quand il n'y a plus rien à ajouter, mais quand il n'y a plus rien à retrancher. Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
We shall have world government, whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest.
Our goal is not victory of might but the vindication of right not peace at the expense of freedom, but both peace and freedom, here in this hemisphere and, we hope, around the world. God willing, that goal will be achieved.
Almost all the noblest things that have been achieved in the world , have been achieved by poor men; poor scholars, poor professional men, poor artisans and artists, poor philosophers, poets, and men of genius .
