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
If the street life, not the Whitechapel street life, but that of the common but so-called respectable part of town is in any city more gloomy, more ugly, more grimy, more cruel than in London, I certainly don't care to see it. Sometimes it occurs to one that Possibly all the failures of this generation, the world over, have been suddenly swept into London, for the streets are a restless, breathing, malodorous pageant of the seedy of all nations.willa cather
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
I believe OS/2 is destined to be the most important operating system, and Possibly program, of all time.bill gates
It is childish to assume that science began in Greece; the Greek "miracle" was prepared by millenia of work in Egypt , Mesopotamia and Possibly in other regions. Greek science was less an invention than a revival.george sarton
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
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
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 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
One would almost think that they [straight white males] felt empowered to take anything the society produced, no matter how marginal, and utilize it for their own ends dare we say "exploit it"? certainly to take advantage of it as long as it's around. And could this Possibly be an effect of discourse? Perhaps it might even be one we on the margins might reasonably appropriate to our profit... or perhaps some of us already have.samuel r. delany
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
Possibly, but my concern is that there not be more things in my philosophy than are in heaven and earth.willard van orman quine
Resolved, to ask myself at the end of every day, week, month and year, wherein I could Possibly in any respect have done better.jonathan edwards
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.livy
If something seems possible, that's probably because someone is already doing it. When something seems that it can't Possibly work, nobody tries it. Real innovation happens when someone tries anyway, overlooking an obvious flaw, and finds a way to make an idea work.joel spolsky
I am showing my pupils details of an immense landscape which they cannot Possibly know their way around.ludwig wittgenstein
Great drama, drama that may reach the alchemical level, must have dimension and its relevance will take care of itself. Writing about AIDS rather than the cocktail set, or Possibly the fairy kingdom, will not guarantee importance. . . . The old comment that all periods of time are at an equal distance from eternity says much, and pondering on it will lead to alchemical theatre while relevance becomes old hat.Robertson Davies
Hyper-selectionism has been with us for a long time in various guises; for it represents the late nineteenth century's scientific version of the myth of natural harmony all is for the best in the best of all possible worlds (all structures well designed for a definite purpose in this case). It is, indeed, the vision of foolish Dr. Pangloss, so vividly satirized by Voltaire in Candide the world is not necessarily good, but it is the best we could Possibly have.stephen jay gould
Yes, [I spent] two long years, traveling all over the United States, all over Europe, interviewing many, many, many people who had been thrown out of their academic jobs because they taught that there was a possibility of life coming from something other than Darwinism, who thought that Possibly random selection and mutations didn't account for the universe, didn't account for gravity, didn't account for why nobody had ever seen an individual species evolve -- no one's ever seen an individual species evolve!"ben stein
The third discrete racial element in Africa is the Caucasoid, which, as indicated earlier, first entered the continent in massive invasions about 15,000 years ago, certainly from Western Asia and Possibly also from Europe. The descendants of those invaders who are still fully or essentially Caucasoid are the Berbers.
For those who are not shocked when they first come across quantum theory cannot Possibly have understood it.
