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:
The labor of women inthehouse, certainly, enables men to produce more wealth than they otherwise could; and in this way [they] are economic factors in society. But so are horses.
It takes perhaps a thousand poor musicians to produce one virtuoso.
'I almost wish I were not a painter,' observed my companion.'Why so? one would think at such a time you would most exult in your privilege of being able to imitate the various brilliant and delightful touches of nature.'No; for instead of delivering myself up to the full enjoyment of them as others do, I am always troubling my head about how I could produce the same effect upon canvas; and as that can never be done, it is more vanity and vexation of spirit.'anne brontë
... for Davies and Service, it was the end of two brilliant careers. For the country they served, it would have even darker implications because they were the best of an era, and the Foreign Service does not produce that many men of rare excellence.davies, john paton, jr.
If our faith in God is not the veriest sham, it demands, and will produce, the abandonment sometimes, the subordination always, of external helps and material good.alexander maclaren
God didn't produce a ready-made world. The Creator has done something cleverer than this, making a world able to make itself.john polkinghorne
My offensive player of the year is going to be Javon Ringer for the way he has carried his team and the workhorse load that he’s carried all year long. Everyone knows he’s getting the football yet he continues to produce.javon ringer
The brain is a mystery; it has been and still will be. How does the brain produce thoughts? That is the central question and we have still no answer to it.charles scott sherrington
[T]he male .... tries to convince himself and women - he's succeeded best at convincing women - that the female function is to bear and raise children and relax, comfort and boost the egos of the male, that her function is such as to make her interchangeable with every other female. In actual fact, the female function is to relate, groove, love and be herself, irreplacable by anyone else; the male function is to produce sperm. We now have sperm banks.valerie solanas
...when you get a good night's sleep and wake up ready to produce throughout the day.stephen covey
No pleasure is in itself evil , but the things which produce certain pleasures entail annoyances many times greater than the pleasures themselves. (8)epicurus
Before the Second World War I believed in the perfectibility of social man; that a correct structure of society would produce goodwill; and that therefore you could remove all social ills by a reorganisation of society... but after the war I did not because I was unable to. I had discovered what one man could do to another... I must say that anyone who moved through those years without understanding that man produces evil as a bee produces honey must have been blind or wrong in the head.william golding
Morals excite passions, and produce or prevent actions. Reason of itself is utterly impotent in this particular. The rules of morality, therefore, are not conclusions of our reason.David Hume

That soul-destroying, meaningless, mechanical, monotonous, moronic work is an insult to human nature which must necessarily and inevitable produce either escapism or aggression, and that no amount of “bread and circuses” can compensate for the damage done these are facts which are neither denied nor acknowledged but are met with an unbreakable conspiracy of silence because to deny them would be too obviously absurd and to acknowledge them would condemn the central preoccupation of modern society.e. f. schumacher
We must remember that the real problem is not how to produce some improvement in the condition of the working man for that has to a certain extent been attained already but how to secure his complete material independence.Arnold Toynbee
The rub here is that buying when prices are low is always a very scary proposition. The low prices that produce high future returns are not possible without catastrophe and risk.
The escape of one delinquent can never produce so much harm to the community as may arise from the infraction of a rule upon which the purity of public justice and the existence of civil liberty essentially depend.
The "passion for incredulity" can produce as much self-deception as the uncritical will to believe.colin wilson
Wars produce many stories of fiction , some of which are told until they are believed to be true .ulysses s. grant
Ever since Plato most philosophers have considered it part of their business to produce ‘proofs’ of immortality and the existence of God . They have found fault with the proofs of their predecessors Saint Thomas rejected Saint Anselm's proofs, and Kant rejected Descartes ' but they have supplied new ones of their own. In order to make their proofs seem valid, they have had to falsify logic , to make mathematics mystical , and to pretend that deep seated prejudices were heaven-sent intuitions .
