It is now proper to proceed a step further, and to enumerate the principal circumstances, from which it may be inferred, that manufacturing establishments not only occasion a positive augmentation of the Produce and Revenue of the Society, but that they contribute essentially to rendering them greater than they could possibly be, without such establishments. These circumstances are:
Women are so often segregated to their sexuality, and how they appear. In fact, there’s a lot of talk, even now, I think in most jobs this is true…people will say, when a woman rises to power, they ask, ‘who did she sleep with?’ You know, it couldn’t Possibly be about her acumen, it couldn’t Possibly be about her intelligence. It’s got to be about her body, because that’s how women get ahead.jennifer beals
The problems of the world cannot Possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were and ask "why not?".john f. kennedy
A tiny sun and moon spin around them, on a complicated orbit to induce seasons, so probably nowhere else in the multiverse is it sometimes necessary for an elephant to cock a leg to allow the sun to go past. Exactly why this should be may never be known. Possibly the Creator of the universe got bored with all the usual business of axial inclination, albedos and rotational velocities, and decided to have a bit of fun for once.terry pratchett
On reflection, moral judgment in the arts appears rather as a tribute to their power to influence emotion and Possibly conduct. And reflecting further on what some critics do today, one sees that a good many have merely shifted the ground of their moralism, transferring their impulse of righteousness to politics and social issues.jacques barzun
It struck me that the movies had spent more than half a century saying, "They lived happily ever after" and the following quarter century warning that they'll be lucky to make it through the weekend. Possibly now we are entering a third era, in which the movies will be sounding a note of cautious optimism: You know, it just might work.Nora Ephron
It is possible that the malice of writers has been overrated (by myself among others). Reading their ruminations on their craft, one sees why this writer could not Possibly like that one, would indeed consider him a menace. Literature is a battleground of conflicting faiths, and nobler passions than envy are involved.wilfrid sheed
For the mere purpose of entertainment and the excitement of wonder, a display of brilliant electric experiments, even when performed in the most promiscuous and confused order, never fail to afford ample gratification to the curiosity. The studious observer, however, whose business is to inquire into the true beauties of the science, requires the most judicious arrangement of the phenomena that can Possibly be devised, in order to facilitate his acquaintance with them, and with the laws by which they are displayed and associated with each other.william sturgeon
Only those who will risk going too far can Possibly find out how far one can go.
I could start this review by stating that Dumb and Dumberer lives up to its name, or by calling it stupid, moronic, and idiotic, but I believe that approach is a trap, since a movie like this might relish being the object of such bland invectives. Instead, let me try a few that can't Possibly be misconstrued as twisted praise: unfunny, boring, torturous, and unwatchable. ... [N]o movie could be more aptly compared to raw sewage than this film - Directed By Troy Miller.james berardinelli
(Coining phrase "null hypothesis") In relation to any experiment we may speak of this hypothesis as the “null hypothesis,” and it should be noted that the null hypothesis is never proved or established, but is Possibly disproved, in the course of experimentation. Every experiment may be said to exist only in order to give the facts a chance of disproving the null hypothesis.ronald fisher
It is an old liberal theme that conservative ideas, being red in tooth and claw, cannot Possibly emerge from any notion of the public good.charles krauthammer
I can think of a few microorganisms, Possibly the tubercle bacillus, the syphilis spirochete, the malarial parasite, and a few others, that have a selective advantage in their ability to infect human beings, but there is nothing to be gained, in an evolutionary sense, by the capacity to cause illness or death. Pathogenicity may be something of a disadvantage for most microbes, carrying lethal risks far more frightening to them than to us. The man who catches a meningococcus is in considerably less danger for his life, even without chemotherapy, than meningococci with the bad luck to catch a man.lewis thomas
The white population could not Possibly be unaffected by those events some whites more stubborn in their defense of segregation, but others beginning to think in different ways. And the black population was transformed, having risen up in mass action for the first time, feeling its power, knowing now that if the old order could be shaken it could be toppled.howard zinn
Some people think that movements, such as the movements in ballet, are a higher cultural expression , whereas some are just dirt. I think it is elitist to think that a trained movement is more acceptable than untrained and Possibly unrehearsed movements.
The best thing about religion is that it's so transparently absurd it can't Possibly last forever. I'm convinced it will only take a small shift in human consciousness for it to be laughed off the planet, and I hope I'm still around when that happens.pat condell
Anything That Can Possibly Go Wrong, Does
'You know,' he said very gravely,'it's one of the most serious things that can Possibly happen to one in a battleto get one's head cut off.'
My music cannot Possibly have given you one hundredth part of the joy your music has given me.edward german
When he said he was going to stop the march and called it a hate march, I think that was very provocative. The Mayor's statements have created a climate that could Possibly lead to some kind of confrontation.al sharpton
I find wholly baffling the widespread belief today that the dropping of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs was an immoral act, even Possibly a war crime to rank with Nazi genocide.j. g. ballard
This view [of the infinite], which I consider to be the sole correct one, is held by only a few. While Possibly I am the very first in history to take this position so explicitly, with all of its logical consequences, I know for sure that I shall not be the last!georg cantor
... Possibly the most Aztec-like of all Europe's remaining Stalinists.enver hoxha
In general, when the imagination is at all noble, it is irresistible, and therefore those who can at all resist it ought to resist it. Be a plain topographer if you Possibly can; if Nature meant you to be anything else, she will force you to it; but never try to be a prophet.john ruskin
There is a great principle which I think ought to be adhered to by this Court, and by every Court where it can Possibly do so; that is to say, that a man shall abide by his contracts, and that a man's contracts should be enforced as against him.
No law can Possibly meet the convenience of every one: we must be satisfied if it be beneficial on the whole and to the majority.
Between "just desserts" and "tragic irony" we are given quite a large scope for our particular talent. Generally speaking, things have gone about as far as they can Possibly go when things have gotten about as bad as they can reasonably get.
