We have overwhelming evidence that available information plus analysis does not lead to knowledge . The management science team can properly analyse a situation and present recommendations to the manager, but no change occurs. The situation is so familiar to those of us who try to practice management science that I hardly need to describe the cases.
He was never in one spot for more than half a second, all my punches were aimed and timed properly but they always wound up hitting empty air. He'd jump in and out, slamming me with a left and whirling me around with his right or the other way around. My arms were plastered with leather and although I jabbed, hooked and crossed, it was like fighting an octopus.gene tunney
LSD is a catalyst or amplifier of mental processes. If properly used it could become something like the microscope or telescope of psychiatry.stanislav grof
Writing, when properly managed (as you may be sure I think mine is) is but a different name for conversation.Laurence Sterne
An experiment is a question which we ask of Nature, who is always ready to give a correct answer, provided we ask properly, that is, provided we arrange a proper experiment.c. v. boys
...there is a strong case to be made for getting someone senior, with a title to match, who can knock heads together about e-government and how it is done properly...bill thompson
Here in the UK, we've now got an evangelical television channel - it's the kind of thing that will be very familiar to everyone in the United States, especially if you've ever turned on your TV set on a Sunday morning, and seen one holy man after another, urging you to send money so that Jesus can buy a new cadillac. Apparently, Jesus can't save the world until he's been properly kitted out with a million-dollar mansion, and a private jet - some small print in the Gospels that we must have missed.pat condell
In this crucial sense, the theory of punctuated equilibrium adopts a very conservative position. The theory asserts no novel claim about modes or mechanisms of speciation; punctuated equilibrium merely takes a standard microevolutionary model and elucidates its expected expression when properly scaled into geological time.stephen jay gould
It is quite true what philosophy says; that life must be understood backwards. But then one forgets the other principle: that it must be lived forwards. Which principle, the more one thinks it through, ends exactly with the thought that temporal life can never properly be understood precisely because I can at no instant find complete rest in which to adopt a position: backwards.
"Compromise" is so often used in a bad sense that it is difficult to remember that properly it merely describes the process of reaching an agreement. Naturally there are certain subjects on which no man can compromise. For instance, there must be no compromise under any circumstances with official corruption, and of course no man should hesitate to say as much.
"Thinking is another attribute of the soul; and here I discover what properly belongs to myself. This alone is inseparable from me. I am--I exist: this is certain"René Descartes
Our love of what is beautiful does not lead to extravagance; our love of the things of the mind does not make us soft. We regard wealth as something to be properly used, rather than as something to boast about. As for poverty, no one need be ashamed to admit it, the real shame is in not taking practical measures to escape from it.Pericles
Yoga is the unifying art of transforming dharma into action, be it through inspired thought , properly nurtuting our children, a painting , a kindness or an act of peace that forever moves humanity forward.
The Doorkeeper of the House will escort the Vice President into the chamber so that he can be properly sworn.tom clancy
There is nothing proper about what you are doing, soldier, but do try to kill me properly.
There was an old man of Thermopylae, Who never did anything properly; But they said,'If you choose To boil eggs in your shoes, You shall never remain inThermopylae.'Edward Lear
Indeed I am inclined to go so far as to say that the one cause for which one may properly make war is the cause of peace.ralph barton perry
Whoever is versed in the jargon does not have to say what he thinks, does not even have to think it properly. The jargon takes over this task.theodor adorno
Symons … remarked that the most common and unhelpful illusion plaguing those who came to see him was the idea that they ought somehow, in the normal course of events, to have intuited long before they had finished their degrees, started families, bought houses and risen to the top of law firms what they should properly be doing with their lives. They were tormented by a residual notion of having through some error or stupidity on their part missed out on their true calling.Alain de Botton
He who knows himself properly can very soon learn to know all other men. It is all reflection.Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
The struggle against war, properly understood and executed, presupposes the uncompromising hostility of the proletariat and its organizations, always and everywhere, toward its own and every other imperialist bourgeoisie...
Our public prayers too often consist almost entirely of passages of Scripture not always judiciously chosen or well arranged and common-place phrases, which have been transmitted down for ages, from one generation to another, selected and put together just as we would compose a sermon or essay, while the heart is allowed no share in the performance; so that we may more properly be said to make a prayer than to pray.
These Courts were very properly adapted to the customs, manners, genius and policy of a people upon their first settlement: but, like all other human jurisdictions, vary in the course and progress of time, as the Government and manners of a people take a different turn, and fall under different circumstances.
Commencement speeches were invented largely in the belief that outgoing college students should never be released into the world until they have been properly sedated.Garretson Trudeau
Almost all people are hypnotics. The proper authority saw to it that the proper belief should be induced, and the people believed properly.
