He will be missed as a friend and colleague and as the ultimate professional. It's the end of Michael's career in **formula** One so in that sense, it is the end of an era. When you look at his record, that's going to be difficult to beat.

Hard work and training. There's no secret **formula**. I lift heavy, work hard and aim to be the best.

The science of anti-Semitism finally comes to explain this phenomenon, enlightening further the consciousness of people, fully satisfying their instinct and its violent eruptions thus legitimized by revealing their cause - the parasitism of the Jews. Thus it gives us the **formula** of the scientific solution for the problem of Judaism, which in order to realize we have only to apply.

I suppose my **formula** might be: dream, diversify and never miss an angle.

The function just found cannot, it is true, express rigorously the probabilities of the errors: for since the possible errors are in all cases confined within certain limits, the probability of errors exceeding those limits ought always to be zero, while our **formula** always gives some value. However, this defect, which every analytical function must, from its nature, labor under, is of no importance in practice, because the value of our function decreases so rapidly... that it can safely be considered as vanishing. Besides, the nature of the subject never admits of assigning with absolute rigor the limits of error.

The observation of nature is part of an artist's life, it enlarges his form-knowledge, keeps him fresh and from working only by **formula**, and feeds inspiration

The physicist who states a law of nature with the aid of a mathematical **formula** is abstracting a real feature of a real material world, even if he has to speak of numbers, vectors, tensors, state-functions, or whatever to make the abstraction.

I take it that what all men are really after is some form or perhaps only some **formula** of peace.

Is it not our duty to find the symphonic **formula** which fits our time, one which progress, daring and modern victory demand? The century of airplanes has a right to its own music.

Variant: The century of aeroplanes deserves its own music. As there are no precedents, I must create anew.

As quoted in

Hidden away amongst Aschenbach’s writing was a passage directly asserting that nearly all the great things that exist owe their existence to a defiant despite: it is despite grief and anguish, despite poverty, loneliness, bodily weakness, vice and passion and a thousand inhibitions, that they have come into being at all. But this was more than an observation, it was an experience, it was positively the **formula** of his life and his fame, the key to his work.

— Ch. 2, as translated by David Luke

In yet another aspect he is the last of the great system-builders, the successor of Hegel , a believer, like him, in a rational **formula** summing up the evolution of mankind.

The art of music is good, for the reason, among others, that it produces pleasure; but what proof is it possible to give that pleasure is good? If, then, it is asserted that there is a comprehensive **formula**, including all things which are in themselves good, and that whatever else is good, is not so as an end, but as a mean, the **formula** may be accepted or rejected, but is not a subject of what is commonly understood by proof.

— Ch. 1 (Ch. V: Applications)

John traces his passion for truth to the language of Jesus and his repeated use of the Hebrew phrase Amen, Amen, translated “truly”, “truly” or “verily”, “verily”. It is a **formula** familiar from the Dead Sea Scrolls.

In business the 80/20 principle is behind any innovation, any extra value. It is an entrepreneurial principle, a **formula** for value creation utilized not only by entrepreneurs, but by most managers and organizations.

— Richard Koch (2003)

On their way toward modern science human beings have discarded meaning. The concept is replaced by the **formula**, the cause by rules.

For any real number x, Euler’s **formula** is Where e is fundamental constant (the base of natural logarithms) and i = ?-1. If we now put x =?, we get e^(i?) = cos ?+i sin ?, and since cos(?) =?1 and sin(?) = 0, this reduces to e^(i?) =?1 so that e i? +1=0.

There is a famous **formula**, perhaps the most compact and famous of all formulas developed by Euler from a discovery of de Moivre: It appeals equally to the mystic , the scientist , the philosopher , the mathematician .

Volleyball is not like a **formula** so we must give players some freedom.

The bourgeois thinkers of the eighteenth century thus turned Aristotle’s **formula** on its head: satisfactions which the Greek philosopher had identified with leisure were now transposed to the sphere of work, while tasks lacking in any financial reward were drained of all significance and left to the haphazard attentions of decadent dilettantes. It now seemed as impossible that one could be happy and unproductive as it had once seemed unlikely that one could work and be human.

We are made of emotions, we are all looking for emotions, it's only a question of finding the way to experience them. There are many different ways of experience them all. Perhaps one different thing, only that, one particular thing that **formula** One can provide you, is that you know we are always expose to danger, danger of getting hurt, danger of dying.
