In those days, before it became scientific, cricket was the best game in the world to watch, with its rapid sequence of amusing incidents, each ball a potential crisis!
The progress of rivers to the ocean is not so Rapid as that of man to error.
Furnished as all Europe is with Academies of Science, with nice instruments and the spirit of experimentation, the progress of human knowledge will be Rapid and discoveries made of which we have at present no conception. I begin to be almost sorry I was born since I cannot have the happiness of knowing what will be known a hundred years hence.Anne Frank
The responsibility for the creation of new scientific knowledge — and for most of its application — rests on that small body of men and women who understand the fundamental laws of nature and are skilled in the techniques of scientific research. We shall have Rapid or slow advance on any scientific frontier depending on the number of highly qualified and trained scientists exploring it.vannevar bush
Were it not for the mind change of Sai devotees the world would already have fallen into complete chaos. The deterioration of mind and man has been very Rapid and abrupt, even precipitous during the last fifteen years. That the world is not in total destruction is due to the change of mind of Sai devotees and to Sai's grace.sathya sai baba
Science is progressing at such a Rapid rate that when you make a prediction and think you are ahead of your time by 100 years you may be ahead of your time by 10 at most.Leo Szilard
The best case scenario is a Rapid attack by precision-guided weapons, striking Saddam's communications in the first hours and preventing his deranged orders from being obeyed. Then a massive landing will bring food, medicine and laptop computers to a surging crowd of thankful and relieved Iraqis and Kurds. This could, in theory, all happen.christopher hitchens
E'en in mid-harvest, while the jocund swain Pluck'd from the brittle stalk the golden grain, Oft have I seen the war of winds contend, And prone on earth th' infuriate storm descend, Waste far and wide, and by the roots uptorn, The heavy harvest sweep through ether borne, As the light straw and Rapid stubble fly In dark'ning whirlwinds round the wintry sky.
The advent of modern communication technology has simply facilitated the Rapid dissemination of increasingly trivial information.
Modern industrial design has advanced at a Rapid pace during the last ten years. Its successes are no longer confined to objects which, like automobiles and airplanes, are themselves the product of new conditions. Modern design has also begun to conquer the traditional arts, and the feeling for abstract form, first expressed in our time in the works of Picasso , Braque , Brancusi , Duchamps-Villon in Europe, or Stieglitz , Benton , and Storrs for example in the United States, has finally entered architecture and the decorative arts.
At Tara today in this fateful hour I place all Heaven with its power, And the sun with its brightness, And the snow with its whiteness, And fire with all the strength it hath, And lightning with its Rapid wrath, And the winds with their swiftness along their path, And the sea with its deepness, And the rocks with their steepness, And the earth with its starkness All these I place, By God's almighty help and grace, Between myself and the powers of darkness.
During the British colonial period, Jaipur is again especially interesting because it remained the capital of semi-autonomous Indian state that lay outside the domain of British India....In the years since Independence , Jaipur, now the capital of Rajasthan, has experienced Rapid and dramatic expansion and contributions to this process has been made by some of India’s leading architects…
His talk was like a stream which runs With Rapid change from rock to roses; It slipped from politics to puns; It passed from Mahomet to Moses; Beginning with the laws that keep The planets in their radiant courses, And ending with some precept deep For dressing eels or shoeing horses.winthrop mackworth praed
I predict that Anonymous and entities like it will become far more significant over the next few years than is expected by most of our similarly irrelevant pundits and this will, no doubt, turn out to be just as much of an understatement as anything else that has been written on the subject. … This is the future , whether one approves or not, and the failure on the part of governments and media alike to understand , and contend with the Rapid change now afoot, ought to remind everyone concerned why it is that this movement is necessary in the first place.
A training exercise, that’s all. If you’ll excuse me, I’ve got tickets to watch our boys thrash Rapid City.
Kean is original; but he copies from himself. His Rapid descents from the hyper-tragic to the infra-colloquial, though sometimes productive of great effect, are often unreasonable. To see him act, is like reading Shakespeare by flashes of lightning.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Soon shall thy arm, unconquer’d steam! afarDrag the slow barge, or drive the Rapid car;Or on wide-waving wings expanded bearThe flying chariot through the field of air.erasmus darwin
I am concerned that many young people in the Hemisphere seem to envision the United States as a nation intoxicated by power, addicted to warfare, controlled by a military-industrial complex, and determined to preserve the status quo, that we are against Rapid economic and social growth.luis a. ferré
If this conversion was genuine, we would have to go back 2,000 years to find another as Rapid and as radical. Saul’s embrace of Christianity on the road to Damascus stood the test of time but the Taoiseach’s [Bertie Ahern] embrace of socialism on the banks of the Tolka hardly will.joe higgins
Every attempt to refer chemical questions to mathematical doctrines must be considered, now and always, profoundly irrational, as being contrary to the nature of the phenomena. . . . but if the employment of mathematical analysis should ever become so preponderant in chemistry (an aberration which is happily almost impossible) it would occasion vast and Rapid retrogradation....auguste comte
The Rapid deterioration of education has been recognized as a national problem for the past several years. Consequently, American businesses must meet the immediate challenge of poorly-educated people in today's workforce by strengthening employee training programs.gregory balestrero
The troubles of the 20th century are not unlike those of adolescence -- Rapid growth beyond the ability of organizations to manage, uncontrollable emotion, and a desperate search for identity. Out of adolescence, however, comes maturity in which physical growth with all its attendant difficulties comes to an end, but in which growth continues in knowledge, in spirit, in community, and in love; it is to this that we look forward as a human race. This goal, once seen with our eyes, will draw our faltering feet toward it.kenneth boulding
For those who have only to obey, law is what the sovereign commands. For the sovereign, in the throes of deciding what he ought to command, this view of law is singularly empty of light and leading. In the dispersed sovereignty of modern states, and especially in times of Rapid social change, law must look to the future as well as to history and precedent, and to what is possible and right as well as to what is actual.william ernest hocking
All times are changing times, but ours is one of massive, Rapid moral and mental transformation. Archetypes turn into millstones, large simplicities get complicated, chaos becomes elegant, and what everybody knows is true turns out to be what some people used to think.ursula k. le guin
To my mind this makes psychedelics central to any political reconstruction, because these are the only force in nature that actually dissolve linguistics structures; lets the mechanics of syntax to be visible, allows the possibility for Rapid introduction and spread of new concepts; gives permission for new ways of seeing; and this is what we have to do, we have to change our minds.terence mckenna
INDUSTRIAL DESIGN is destined to become a universal language:;; for in our material age of Rapid transition, from abstract, to applied, Science in the midst of our extraordinary tendency towards the perfection of the means of conversion, or manufacturing production it must soon pass current in every land.
A dog was praising a wolf for the Rapid wagging of its tail.
Out of the hills of Habersham, Down the valleys of Hall, I hurry amain to reach the plain: Run the Rapid and leap the fall, Split at the rock, and together again Accept my bed, or narrow or wide, And flee from folly on every side With a lover's pain to attain the plain, Far from the hills of Habersham, Far from the valleys of Hall.Sidney Lanier
Episodic flooding in Panaji even during low tides is directly linked to Rapid urbanization and consequent damage to existing drainage systems.Nandkumar Kamat
