Masculine and feminime, vertical and horizontal.
Let us honour if we can The vertical man Though we value none But the horizontal one.wystan hugh auden
The Eudemian Summary ascribes to Thales the invention of the theorems on the equality of vertical angles, the equality of the angles at the base of an isosceles triangle, the bisection of a circle by any diameter, and the congruence of two triangles having a side and the two adjacent angles equal respectively. The last theorem he applied to the measurement of the distances of ships from the shore. Thus Thales was the first to apply theoretical geometry to practical uses.
Thanks to the oval I have discovered the meaning of the horizontal and the vertical.Georges Braque
The acceptance of vertical differentiation with the built-in principle of self-determination must apply on as many levels as possible.pieter willem botha
But the net effect of increasing scale, centralization of capital , vertical integration and diversification within the corporate form of enterprise has been to replace the 'invisible hand' of the market by the 'visible hand' of the managers .david harvey
My method is vertical rather than horizontal so the scenery does not change but the texture does.Marshall McLuhan
On the top of the wall lay a structure of burnt brick, about a foot and a half in height, under the tiles and projecting like a coping . ...when the tiles on the roof are broken or thrown down by the wind so that rain-water can leak through, this burnt brick coating will prevent the crude brick from being damaged, and the cornice -like projection will throw off the drops beyond the vertical face, and thus the walls, though of crude brick structure, will be preserved intact.vitruvius
All the technique of the dance is based on a division of the body into two equal halves according to a vertical line which passes through it , ad on the unequal distribution of weight, some times more on one half of the body, some times more on the other half.
Passive righteousness tells us that God does not need our good works. Active righteousness tells us that our neighbor does. The aim and direction of good works are horizontal, not vertical.
Project management utilises the systems approach to management by having functional personnel (the vertical hierarchy) assigned to a specific project (the horizontal hierarchy).
The classical vertical arrangement for project management is characterized by an inherent self-sufficiency of operation. It has within its structure all the necessary specialized skills to provide complete engineering capabilities and it also has the ability to carry on its own laboratory investigations, preparation of drawings, and model or prototype manufacture.
...difference between yoga and tantra; yoga is horizontal, tantra is vertical; yoga takes millions of lives to reach; tantra says: within a second.
On the top of the wall lay a structure of burnt brick, about a foot and a half in height, under the tiles and projecting like a coping . ...when the tiles on the roof are broken or thrown down by the wind so that rain-water can leak through, this burnt brick coating will prevent the crude brick from being damaged, and the cornice -like projection will throw off the drops beyond the vertical face, and thus the walls, though of crude brick structure, will be preserved intact.
Je vois l'Afrique multiple et une verticale dans la tumultueuse pe ripe tie avec ses bourrelets, ses nodules, un peu a' part, mais a' porte e du sie' cle, comme un coeur de re serve. I see several Africas and one vertical in the tumultuous event with its screens and nodules, a little separated, but within the century, like a heart in reserve.Aime Fernand Ce saire
Architecture is an art which is basically geometrical. The cube is the basis of architecture because the right angle is necessarythe steps of a staircase consist of vertical and horizontal planes and the corners of rooms are nearly always right angles.We need right angles. 542
With vertical thinking one may look for different approaches until one finds a promising one. With lateral thinking one goes on generating as many approaches as one can even after one has found a promising one. With vertical thinking one is trying to select the best approach but with lateral thinking one is generating different approaches for the sake of generating them.edward de bono
The vertical is in my spirit. It helps me to define precisely the direction of lines, and in quick sketches I never indicate a curve, that of a branch in landscape for example, without being aware of its relationship to the vertical.My curves are not mad.
If the intensity of the material world is plotted along the horizontal axis, and the response of the human mind is on the vertical, the relation between the two is represented by the logarithmic curve. Could this rule provide a clue to the relationship between the objective measure of information, and our subjective perception of it?hans christian von baeyer
Showers of [cannon] balls... and shells... poured into the fort in one incessant stream, causing great flakes of masonry to fall in all directions. When the immense mortar shells, after sailing high in he air, came down in a vertical direction and buried themselves in the parade ground, their explosion shook the fort like an earthquake.
An insight into Egyptian methods of numeration was obtained through the ingenious deciphering of the hieroglyphics by Champollion , Young , and their successors. ...The symbol for 1 represents a vertical staff, that for 10,000 a pointing finger, that for 100,000 a burbot , that for 1,000,000 a man in astonishment.
