The abundance, the solidity, and the splendor of the results already achieved by science are well fitted to inspire us with a cheerful confidence in the soundness of its method.
Action in war is like movement in a resistant element. Just as the simplest and most natural of movements, walking, cannot easily be performed in water, so in war it is difficult for normal efforts to achieve even moderate results.
I do not intend to be one of those who bemoan little results, while resting in the faithfulness of God. My cue is to take hold of the faithfulness of God and USE THE MEANS necessary to secure big results.james o. fraser
The results were clear: the new environment inhibited recognition.elizabeth loftus
I wish luck to you and your nation that loves you, as the election results we can see testifyalexander lukashenko
War is very uncertain in its results, and often when affairs look most desperate they suddenly assume a more hopeful state.
The expenses of the royal household, wars, and lavish public building were financed by tolls and the profits of the king's foreign trade monopoly, by conscription of labour and heavy taxation. The results were impoverishment of the masses, alienation of land, and the development of a proletariat.roll, eric, baron roll of ipsden
The only merit of which I personally am conscious was that of having pleased myself by my studies, and any results that may be due to my researches were owing to the fact that it has been a pleasure for me to become a physicist.strutt, john, 3rd baron rayleigh
Greatness has nothing to do with results or with success.georg brandes
Far from being a sum of distinct and partial results, victory is the consequence of efforts, some of which are victorious while others appear to be fruitless, which nevertheless all aim at a common goal, all drive at a common result: namely, at a decision, a conclusion which alone can provide victory.Ferdinand Foch
Basically, price fluctuations have only one significant meaning for the true investor. They provide him with an opportunity to buy wisely when prices fall sharply and to sell wisely when they advance a great deal. At other times he will do better if he forgets about the stock market and pays attention to his dividend returns and to the operating results of his companies.benjamin graham
The reason is not to glorify "bit chasing"; a more fundamental issue is at stake here: Numerical subroutines should deliver results that satisfy simple, useful mathematical laws whenever possible . [...] Without any underlying symmetry properties, the job of proving interesting results becomes extremely unpleasant. The enjoyment of one's tools is an essential ingredient of successful work .donald knuth
In the bureaucracy, incentives will forever be inverted. Failure results in success: in more funds, more training, more time off.ilana mercer
The mind is like the stomach. It is not how much you put into it that counts, but how much it digests if you try to feed it with a shovel you get bad results.albert jay nock
I am astonished and somewhat terrified at the results of this evening's experiments – astonished at the wonderful power you have developed, and terrified at the thought that so much hideous and bad music may be put on record forever! ... I think it is the most wonderful thing that I have ever experienced, and I congratulate you with all my heart on this wonderful discovery.arthur sullivan
Every part of the system is so related to every other part that any change in one aspect results in dynamic changes in all other parts of the total system
Scientific management consists in correct interpretation of phenomena, in exact knowledge of laws, principle and the influence of conditions upon results: and in the skilled use of methods adapted to the almost infinitely varying circumstances of individual cases - Engineering magazine -
To achieve satisfactory investment results is easier than most people realize; to achieve superior results is harder than it looks.
The business of a novelist is, in my opinion, to create characters first and foremost, and then to set them in the snarl of the human currents of his time, so that there results an accurate permanent record of a phase of history.
In the bureaucracy, incentives will forever be inverted. Failure results in success: in more funds, more training, more time off.
Chapter XII. The Manager and the Instruments of Management Production is a synthesis of functions always present but not all actually developed sometimes quite rudimentary how is synthesis to be effected influence of strong personality leadership essential to great results manager is outside science of management must use its principles, as chemist is outside the science of chemistry and uses its principles to effect his aims management science provides the instruments, their successful wielding depends upon capacity of manager.
to argue according to rigorous rational criteria is to guarantee that the results attained are universally valid.
The aim of the law is not to punish sins, but is to prevent certain external results.
Strategic results that undermine established terrorist campaigns demand broader scope and planning. In our case studies, popular support was more effectively reduced by the arrests of leaders than by their demise, and this is why efforts at targeted killing often backfire in the long run.
Every one is bound to bear patiently the results of his own example.
If physics is too difficult for the physicists, the nonphysicist may wonder whether he should try at all to grasp its complexities and ambiguities. It is undeniably an effort, but probably one worth making, for the basic questions are important and the new experimental results are often fascinating.
Biochemists and biologists who adhere blindly to the Darwinism theory search for results that will be in agreement with their theories and consequently orient their research in a given direction, whether it be in the field of ecology, ethology, sociology, demography (dynamics of populations), genetics (so-called evolutionary genetics), or paleontology. This intrusion of theories has unfortunate results: it deprives observations and experiments of their objectivity, makes them biased, and, moreover, creates false problems.
