It's an amazing feeling to know that life is actually growing inside your body. The first time you see the ultrasound and you see the little bones and you realise that it's part of you and it's in your care is life changing and this sort of protective instinct has taken over.
It’s amazing to me that not only can we put a probe around Saturn and get images of its moons, but our math and physics are so freaking accurate we can say, "Hey, you know what? On this date at this time if we turn Cassini that way we’ll see a moon over 2 million kilometers away pass in front of another one nearly 3 million kilometers away."Every morning, I have a 50/50 chance of finding my keys. That kinda puts things in perspective.phil plait
Persons who clamor for governmental control of American railways should visit Germany, and above all Russia, to see how such control results. In Germany its defects are evident enough; people are made to travel in carriages which our main lines would not think of using, and with a lack of conveniences which with us would provoke a revolt; but the most amazing thing about this administration in Russia is to see how, after all this vast expenditure, the whole atmosphere of the country seems to paralyze energy.Andrew Dickson White
It is amazing what can be accomplished when nobody cares about who gets the credit.Robert Yates, as quoted in The Team Selling Solution : Creating and Managing Teams That Win (2003) by Steve Waterhouse, p. 51.
Our neighborhood - this solar system, the cosmos, actually - is so much more vast and amazing than the paltry headlines, insanity, and politics crammed at us daily as so-called news. The beauty of the hood and discoveries that await us are deserving of our attention and mandatory to our survival as a species.vanna bonta
The twentieth century saw an amazing development of scholarship and criticism in the humanities, carried out by people who were more intelligent, better trained, had more languages, had a better sense of proportion, and were infinitely more accurate scholars and competent professional men than I. I had genius. No one else in the field known to me had quite that.Northrop Frye
The beauty of physics lies in the extent to which seemingly complex and unrelated phenomena can be explained and correlated through a high level of abstraction by a set of laws which are amazing in their simplicity.in Electromagnetism and Its Relation to Relativity, chapter 3 of his book Principles of electrodynamics. Courier Dover Publications. 1987. p. 105. ISBN 0486654931.
from mike: art show success! the show last night was amazing! thanks to everyone that showed up. we had a line around the block the entire time, and i think some people couldn't get in (i wouldn't know, i was inside signing things for 3+ hours). a lot of people said a lot of really nice things about the work -- glad you got to see it in person.mike shinoda
It is always amazing to see how wide a spectrum of results can be obtained from replicating an identical negotiation with different principal actors; it makes no difference whether there subjects are inexperienced or whether they are senior executives and young presidents of business firms. That is an important lesson to be learned here.Howard Raiffa (1982) The Art and Science of Negotiation. Part II, Chapter 7, Acquisitions and Mergers, p. 94
The cybernetics phase of cognitive science produced an amazing array of concrete results, in addition to its long-term (often underground) influence:the use of mathematical logic to understand the operation of the nervous system;
You should see the sun on the Ganges. It's amazing.Who: Matt Kowalski
My agent told me they were casting for the voice of Gollum. I hadn't read The Lord of the Rings, but I read the script and realized what an amazing role it was. I developed a voice for the audition tape, then met Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh at the auditions and fell in love with them both.Andy Serkis
