these models are constructed not just from data but from the choices we make about which data to pay attention to - and which to leave out. Those choices are not just about logistics, profits, and efficiency. They are fundamentally moral. If we back away from them and treat mathematical models as a neutral and inevitable force, like the weather or the tides, we abdicate our responsibility. And the result, as we've seen, is WMDs that treat us like machine parts in the workplace, that blackball employees and feast on inequities. We must come together to police these WMDs, to tame and disarm them. My hope is that they'll be remembered, like the deadly coal mines of a century ago, as relics of the early days of this new revolution, before we learned how to bring fairness and accountability to the age of data. Math deserves much better than WMDs, and democracy does too.Cathy O'Neil Constructed Sayings By Cathy O'Neil: these models are constructed not just from data but from the choices we make about
The laws of nature are constructed in such a way as to make the universe as interesting as possible.Freeman Dyson Constructed Sayings By Freeman Dyson: The laws of nature are constructed in such a way as to make the universe
All writers are, somewhere or other, mad. Not les grands fous, like Rimbaud, but mad, yes, mad. Because we do not believe in the stability of reality. We know that it can fragment, like a sheet of glass or a car's windscreen. but we also know that reality can be invented, reordered, constructed, remade. Writing is, in itself, an act of violence perpetrated against reality.Patricia Duncker Constructed Sayings By Patricia Duncker: All writers are, somewhere or other, mad. Not les grands fous, like Rimbaud, but mad,
Rifkin's assertions bear no relationship to what I have observed and practiced for 25 years ... Either I am blind or he is wrong - and I think I can show, by analyzing his slipshod scholarship and basic misunderstanding of science, that his world is an invention constructed to validate his own private hopes ... Rifkin shows no understanding of the norms and procedures of science: he displays little comprehension of what science is and how scientists work.Stephen Jay Gould Constructed Sayings By Stephen Jay Gould: Rifkin's assertions bear no relationship to what I have observed and practiced for 25 years
The Authority has said: Dream! But in truth , they mete out our destinies in tiny rations; they've said how far we can go, how long, and where. Aspirations are useless, because to aspire, is to reach. Dream, they say, but not too big. Laugh, they say, but not too loudly . Love, they say, but not too hard. When you find you cannot contain yourself any longer and you imagine things beyond the walls they've built for you, constructed to imprison your desires, and when your heart is filled with impossible things, then, I say, you have achieved true independence. Our Anarchy is not simply a battle of flesh and blood; it is a war of the mind. The time is always now to declare your freedom!Logan Keys Constructed Sayings By Logan Keys: The Authority has said: Dream! But in truth , they mete out our destinies in
A beautifully constructed borshch, such as you are going to experience presently, ought not only to banish conversation but almost to annihilate thought.Hector Hugh Munro Constructed Sayings By Hector Hugh Munro: A beautifully constructed borshch, such as you are going to experience presently, ought not only
If the immutable character of sex is contested, perhaps this construct called 'sex' is as culturally constructed as gender; indeed, perhaps it was always already gender, with the consequence that the distinction between sex and gender turns out to be no distinction at all.Judith Butler Constructed Sayings By Judith Butler: If the immutable character of sex is contested, perhaps this construct called 'sex' is as
I fell in love with books. Some people find beauty in music, some in painting, some in landscape, but I find it in words. By beauty, I mean the feeling you have suddenly glimpsed another world, or looked into a portal that reveals a kind of magic or romance out of which the world has been constructed, a feeling there is something more than the mundane, and a reason for our plodding.Donald Miller Constructed Sayings By Donald Miller: I fell in love with books. Some people find beauty in music, some in painting,
Every hope of successive generations of scholars that order might be constructed from the chaotic mess of medical nomenclature has been frustrated. Even diseases recognized in the same historical period have been given names based on characteristics that have no relation to one another, and thus no common criteria.Sherwin B. Nuland Constructed Sayings By Sherwin B. Nuland: Every hope of successive generations of scholars that order might be constructed from the chaotic
There were quotations that were openly and reverently emphasized as such, or that were half-hidden, completely hidden, half-conscious, unconscious, correct, intentionally distorted, unintentionally distorted, deliberately reinterpreted and so forth. The boundary lines between someone else's speech and one's own speech were flexible, ambiguous, often deliberately distorted and confused. Certain types of text were constructed like mosaics out of the texts of others.Mikhail Bakhtin Constructed Sayings By Mikhail Bakhtin: There were quotations that were openly and reverently emphasized as such, or that were half-hidden,
For the first time there was constructed with this machine [locomotive engine] a self-acting mechanism in which the interplay of forces took shape transparently enough to discern the connection between the heat generated and the motion produced. The great puzzle of the vital force was also immediately solved for the physiologist in that it became evident that it is more than a mere poetic comparison when one conceives of the coal as the food of the locomotive and the combustion as the basis for its life.Carl Ludwig Constructed Sayings By Carl Ludwig: For the first time there was constructed with this machine [locomotive engine] a self-acting mechanism
Religion will disappear from men's consciousness when, finally, we have constructed a world of equals, without class distinctions, and with a sound of scientific conception of society and of lifeElena Ferrante Constructed Sayings By Elena Ferrante: Religion will disappear from men's consciousness when, finally, we have constructed a world of equals,
Imaginary' universes are so much more beautiful than this stupidly constructed 'real' one; and most of the finest products of an applied mathematician's fancy must be rejected, as soon as they have been created, for the brutal but sufficient reason that they do not fit the facts.G.H. Hardy Constructed Sayings By G.H. Hardy: Imaginary' universes are so much more beautiful than this stupidly constructed 'real' one; and most
I always prayed the same way at night: "Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take. Please bless my mother, father, sister, everyone in the word, and me. And please make my father quit drinking."
As a child growing up in a family battling alcoholism, this is what I know: Something bad is coming; it always does. I can't ask for help; I'm too ashamed. I can't talk about our secrets; no one understands. I can't trust anyone; they always leave.
Questions bounced off my self-constructed wall of values
a barricade I'd made from the fears I'd pushed into my darkness.
How could Ryan, a professional baseball player, really resist all those women? How could I really trust Jerry, my childhood friend? I'd barely awakened to sex and already boys were the seventh wonder of the world. Did anyone really trust another person? I needed proof. That proof hadn't revealed itself ... yet.
Pamela Taeuffer Constructed Sayings By Pamela Taeuffer: I always prayed the same way at night: "Now I lay me down to sleep.
Welfare states come in different shapes and sizes; they are constructed on diverging conceptions of social rights and duties; some stress equality and solidarity, others freedom; and the range of policy objectives is vast and widely dissimilar.Kees Van Kersbergen Constructed Sayings By Kees Van Kersbergen: Welfare states come in different shapes and sizes; they are constructed on diverging conceptions of
Our carefully constructed system of checks and balances is being negated by the rise of a fourth branch, an administrative state of sprawling departments and agencies that govern with increasing autonomy and decreasing transparency.Jonathan Turley Constructed Sayings By Jonathan Turley: Our carefully constructed system of checks and balances is being negated by the rise of
A new device or method is put together from the available components - the available vocabulary - of a domain. In this sense a domain forms a language; and a new technological artifact constructed from components of the domain is an utterance in the domain's language. This makes technology as a whole a collection of several languages, because each new artifact may draw from several domains.W. Brian Arthur Constructed Sayings By W. Brian Arthur: A new device or method is put together from the available components - the available
Here she was at eight, with the chemistry set she'd begged for at Christmas. Her father was beside her in this one, showing her a picture of the periodic table, explaining how everything on earth, everything in the universe, even - people, starfish, cement, bicycles, and far-off planets - was made up of a combination of these elements. "Isn't it amazing to think of, Ruthie?" he'd asked. Ruthie had found the idea that we were only a series of neatly constructed puzzle pieces or building blocks vaguely unsettling - even at eight, she wanted there to be more to it than that.Jennifer McMahon Constructed Sayings By Jennifer McMahon: Here she was at eight, with the chemistry set she'd begged for at Christmas. Her
Christianity has the rancor of the sick at its very core-the instinct against the healthy, against health. Everything that is well-constructed, proud, gallant and, above all, beautiful gives offense to its ears and eyes.Friedrich Nietzsche Constructed Sayings By Friedrich Nietzsche: Christianity has the rancor of the sick at its very core-the instinct against the healthy,
When I was in the US, I felt that the discourse there surrounding Muslims as the other, problematising Muslims and Islam as the other was very similar to what we find in Australia, which is that the image of Islam is a constructed image in the West. We are starting from a point of view that Islam and Muslims - well Islam is a violent, misogynistic, hateful religion and that is where the debate always starts from - that presumption underlies the discourse.Reza Aslan Constructed Sayings By Reza Aslan: When I was in the US, I felt that the discourse there surrounding Muslims as
Do you ever get moods when life seems absolutely meaningless? It's like a badly-constructed story, with all sorts of characters moving in and out who have nothing to do with the plot. And when somebody comes along that you think really has something to do with the plot, he suddenly drops out. After a while you begin to wonder what the story is about, and you feel that it's about nothing - just a jumble.P.G. Wodehouse Constructed Sayings By P.G. Wodehouse: Do you ever get moods when life seems absolutely meaningless? It's like a badly-constructed story,
Zeus Is Dead is full of laugh-out-loud moments, lashings of sly wit, moan-worthy puns, and a complex, fast-paced storyline. There aren't very many humorous fantasy murder mysteries out there, especially not as intricately constructed as this one. Michael G. Munz takes a 'What if,' and runs with it like a toddler with Mom's smart phone. The guffaw-worthy throwaway bits will remind you of Douglas Adams. A very enjoyable read.Jody Lynn Nye Constructed Sayings By Jody Lynn Nye: Zeus Is Dead is full of laugh-out-loud moments, lashings of sly wit, moan-worthy puns, and
A well-constructed lie is assembled largely from the alphabet blocks of fact, which will as easily make a pyramid as a platform.Lionel Shriver Constructed Sayings By Lionel Shriver: A well-constructed lie is assembled largely from the alphabet blocks of fact, which will as
The race thing is sort of a misnomer. It's just the human race, right? That's it. The rest of it, and racism, is socially constructed. Nobody is born racist, no one. What happens is other things that are usually based on power, money, feeling good about yourself, or bad about yourself, those things play into hating other people for whatever reason.Toni Morrison Constructed Sayings By Toni Morrison: The race thing is sort of a misnomer. It's just the human race, right? That's
The pyramid that can be constructed on the diameters of earth and moon bears the precise proportions of the Great PyramidBonnie Gaunt Constructed Sayings By Bonnie Gaunt: The pyramid that can be constructed on the diameters of earth and moon bears the
On how to make boys like you:
the third way is to be come something called "hot"
Now Katie I would argue that there are at least two
distinct definitions
of hot. There is the like normal
human definition which is that individual seems
suitable for mating. And then theirs the weird culturally
constructed definition of hot which is that individual is
malnourished and has probably had plastic bags inserted
into her breasts. Now boys might find that hot now but I don't think there's anything inherently hot about it like if you went back to the 18th century and ask a fifteen year old boy would you like to marry a woman who has had plastic bags needlessly inserted into her breasts that fifteen year old boy would probably be like: "What's plastic?
John Green Constructed Sayings By John Green: On how to make boys like you:the third way is to be come something called
'The Lord of the Rings,' published in the mid-1950s, was intended as a prehistory to our own world. It was perceived by Tolkien to be a small but significant episode in a vast alternate mythology constructed entirely out of his own imagination.Peter Jackson Constructed Sayings By Peter Jackson: 'The Lord of the Rings,' published in the mid-1950s, was intended as a prehistory to
The core identity is Traven, a name taken consciously from B. Traven, a writer I've always admired for his extreme reclusiveness - so completely at odds with the logic of our own age, when even the concept of privacy is constructed from publicly circulating materials. It is now almost impossible to be ourselves except on the world's terms.J.G. Ballard Constructed Sayings By J.G. Ballard: The core identity is Traven, a name taken consciously from B. Traven, a writer I've
His father was self-made, but his mother was constructed by others, and such edifices are notoriously fragile.Margaret Atwood Constructed Sayings By Margaret Atwood: His father was self-made, but his mother was constructed by others, and such edifices are
A common creation demands a common sacrifice, and perhaps not the least potent argument in favour of a constructed international language is the fact that it is equally foreign, or apparently so, to the traditions of all nationalities.Edward Sapir Constructed Sayings By Edward Sapir: A common creation demands a common sacrifice, and perhaps not the least potent argument in
We are already in Hell. It is the earth itself that is Hell, the prison constructed for us by an intelligence superior to our own, in which I could not take a step without injuring the happiness of others, and in which my fellow creatures could not enjoy their own happiness without causing me pain.August Strindberg Constructed Sayings By August Strindberg: We are already in Hell. It is the earth itself that is Hell, the prison
The beaver dam had been constructed on the ruins of a man-made one, built by the CCC back in the thirties and later dynamited by an irate Finn who'd objected to the government's meddling with nature.Philip Caputo Constructed Sayings By Philip Caputo: The beaver dam had been constructed on the ruins of a man-made one, built by
Every democracy is constructed day-to-day. And the electoral process reduces and minimalizes every single aspect of human complexity. We're putting it into pamphlets. We're doing a publicity show. We're becoming symbols.Gael Garcia Bernal Constructed Sayings By Gael Garcia Bernal: Every democracy is constructed day-to-day. And the electoral process reduces and minimalizes every single aspect
There's a movie called 'Elizabeth: The Golden Age,' where I'm playing the King of Spain. It's a small role, but it's really, really interesting, the way I constructed it.Jordi Molla Constructed Sayings By Jordi Molla: There's a movie called 'Elizabeth: The Golden Age,' where I'm playing the King of Spain.
The human brain runs first-class simulation software. Our eyes don't present to our brains a faithful photograph of what is out there, or an accurate movie of what is going on through time. Our brains construct a continuously updated model: updated by coded pulses chattering along the optic nerve, but constructed nevertheless. Optical illusions are vivid reminders of this.47 A major class of illusions, of which the Necker Cube is an example, arise because the sense data that the brain receives are compatible with two alternative models of reality. The brain, having no basis for choosing between them, alternates, and we experience a series of flips from one internal model to the other. The picture we are looking at appears, almost literally, to flip over and become something else.Richard Dawkins Constructed Sayings By Richard Dawkins: The human brain runs first-class simulation software. Our eyes don't present to our brains a
We should not delude ourselves into thinking that our historical narratives, as commonly constructed, are anything more than retrofits.Niall Ferguson Constructed Sayings By Niall Ferguson: We should not delude ourselves into thinking that our historical narratives, as commonly constructed, are
The human mind delights in finding pattern - so much so that we often mistake coincidence or forced analogy for profound meaning. No other habit of thought lies so deeply within the soul of a small creature trying to make sense of a complex world not constructed for it.Stephen Jay Gould Constructed Sayings By Stephen Jay Gould: The human mind delights in finding pattern - so much so that we often mistake
As her body expanded so did her interior landscape. She imagined minarets, skyscrapers, entire cities being constructed inside her. Thighs thickened, belly became basketball-sized, buttocks deepened with dimples. Even her taste-buds shifted, and she held her tongue out for crushed ice, chalk, charcoal.Diriye Osman Constructed Sayings By Diriye Osman: As her body expanded so did her interior landscape. She imagined minarets, skyscrapers, entire cities
Bringing a novel to light - revealing the form and cadence, shadows and demeanor of a protagonist constructed from thin air - linking scenes and synchronicity across translucent time - holding up a glass brimming with chilled, never-tasted liquid, then sipping from it with intoxicated focus - allowing lovers to make a perilous mess of things, fall apart and nakedly come back together again - looking through conjured windows deep into someone else's snow-bound solitude, feeling utterly alone yet being all-connected: this is not writing. It's world-creating.

It's raw, exposed dreaming. It's humbling. At first too personal and intimate to share, it evolves like a child into a life of its own until I have no say in what comes next.

It's what I wake at 4am to say Yes to, the spinning possibility of a new story relentlessly commanding me to write it down so it can whirl in your experience.
Laurie Perez Constructed Sayings By Laurie Perez: Bringing a novel to light - revealing the form and cadence, shadows and demeanor of
The unconventional is dangerous at times, but we must...splash our personal canvasses with bold strokes and daring colors and give no thought to what the finished work may look like. It will somehow self-organize into a more worthy piece than can be constructed by the deliberate planning so common with the way life is lived today by most of our fellow humans.Asim Khan Constructed Sayings By Asim Khan: The unconventional is dangerous at times, but we must...splash our personal canvasses with bold strokes
When people hear my daughter and when they know about her wisdom and maturity, they think that her father must have been sitting with her and mentoring her. They think he would have spent a lot of time in bringing her up. They think he would have constructed her.Ziauddin Yousafzai Constructed Sayings By Ziauddin Yousafzai: When people hear my daughter and when they know about her wisdom and maturity, they
over the centuries Dante has been variously "constructed" - as lover, statesman, neo-Platonist, proto-Protestant, Romantic visionary, Byronic hero, Pre-Raphaelite, father of his country, theologian in verse, precursor of the modern novel, and, finally, altissimo poeta, the consummate poet.Peter S. Hawkins Constructed Sayings By Peter S. Hawkins: over the centuries Dante has been variously "constructed" - as lover, statesman, neo-Platonist, proto-Protestant, Romantic
Kim Newman brings Dracula back home in the granddaddy of all vampire adventures. Anno Dracula couldn't be more fun if Bram Stoker had scripted it for Hammer. It's a beautifully constructed Gothic epic that knocks almost every other vampire novel out for the count.Christopher Fowler Constructed Sayings By Christopher Fowler: Kim Newman brings Dracula back home in the granddaddy of all vampire adventures. Anno Dracula
She'd always heard that Paris was elegant but had struggled to imagine how. She'd assumed it would be rigid; the demanding intolerance of perfection. But, being here, she was struck by the easy naturalness of everything. From the tall, slender trees, their leaves rustling high above her, to the chalky gravel that crunched beneath her feet or the classically proportioned buildings that rose, uniformly constructed from the same blonde stone, it was all orchestrated to hold the light. The entire city was enveloped in a halo of glowing softness.Kathleen Tessaro Constructed Sayings By Kathleen Tessaro: She'd always heard that Paris was elegant but had struggled to imagine how. She'd assumed
If God so precisely and carefully and lovingly and amazingly constructed a mind-boggling habitat for his creatures, then it would be natural for Him to want them to explore it, to measure it, to investigate it, to appreciate it, to be inspired by it - and ultimately, and most importantly, to find Him through it.Lee Strobel Constructed Sayings By Lee Strobel: If God so precisely and carefully and lovingly and amazingly constructed a mind-boggling habitat for
From the warmth of her fondness for her horse she constructed a fragile and changeable thing that almost resembled courage. She hoped it would be enough.Kristin Cashore Constructed Sayings By Kristin Cashore: From the warmth of her fondness for her horse she constructed a fragile and changeable
We simply weren't constructed to live only for ourselves. We were placed on earth to be part of something bigger than the narrow borders of our own survival and our own little definition of happiness. ThePaul David Tripp Constructed Sayings By Paul David Tripp: We simply weren't constructed to live only for ourselves. We were placed on earth to
everything conspires to make us forget the socially constructed, and hence arbitrary and artificial, character of investment in the economic game and its stakes: the ultimate reasons for commitment to work, a career or the pursuit of profit in fact lie beyond or outside calculation and calculating reason in the obscure depths of a historically constituted habitus, which means that, in normal circumstances, one gets up every day to go to work without deliberating on the issue, as indeed one did yesterday and will do tomorrow.)Pierre Bourdieu Constructed Sayings By Pierre Bourdieu: everything conspires to make us forget the socially constructed, and hence arbitrary and artificial, character
But sometimes things happen that no one hopes for. Events that cause everything you've worked towards, the life you've carefully constructed piece by piece, to come tumbling down all around you. No one is to blame, but you're left with a wound you can't heal on your own and can't believe you'll ever learn to accept, so you struggle to escape the pain. Only time can heal wounds as deep as that - a lot of time - and all you can really do is place yourself in its hands and try to consider the passing of each day a victory. You tough it out moment by moment, hour by hour, and after some weeks or months you begin to see signs of recovery. Slowly the wound heals into a scar.Ryu Murakami Constructed Sayings By Ryu Murakami: But sometimes things happen that no one hopes for. Events that cause everything you've worked
I suspect that music has qualities both of speech and writing - partly built in, partly individually constructed - and this goes on all through one's life.Oliver Sacks Constructed Sayings By Oliver Sacks: I suspect that music has qualities both of speech and writing - partly built in,
Here are the basic principles of Constructivism as practiced by Kronecker and codified by J.H. Poincare and L.E.J. Brouwer and other major figures in Intuitionism: (1) Any mathematical statement or theorem that is more complicated or abstract than plain old integer-style arithmetic must be explicitly derived (i.e. 'constructed') from integer arithmetic via a finite number of purely deductive steps. (2) The only valid proofs in math are constructive ones, with the adjective here meaning that the proof provides a method for finding (i.e., 'constructing') whatever mathematical entities it's concerned with.David Foster Wallace Constructed Sayings By David Foster Wallace: Here are the basic principles of Constructivism as practiced by Kronecker and codified by J.H.
On a musical level, I do find it rewarding. It's not like I want to blow my brains out while I'm playing these songs from so long ago. I am still surprised by the way the songs are constructed - note choices, the way the arrangements are made, the way these songs are assembled. I'm still amazed at times.David Pajo Constructed Sayings By David Pajo: On a musical level, I do find it rewarding. It's not like I want to
Ultimately, Leibniz argued, there are only two absolutely simple concepts, God and Nothingness. From these, all other concepts may be constructed, the world, and everything within it, arising from some primordial argument between the deity and nothing whatsoever. And then, by some inscrutable incandescent insight, Leibniz came to see that what is crucial in what he had written is the alternation between God and Nothingness. And for this, the numbers 0 and 1 suffice.David Berlinski Constructed Sayings By David Berlinski: Ultimately, Leibniz argued, there are only two absolutely simple concepts, God and Nothingness. From these,
I don't believe in the so-called Olympic spirit. I speak from personal experience. When China hosted the Games, it failed to include the people. The event was constructed without regard for their joy.Ai Weiwei Constructed Sayings By Ai Weiwei: I don't believe in the so-called Olympic spirit. I speak from personal experience. When China
Modern church music is so constructed that the congregation cannot hear one distinct word.Desiderius Erasmus Constructed Sayings By Desiderius Erasmus: Modern church music is so constructed that the congregation cannot hear one distinct word.
Alienation as we find it in modern society is almost total ... Man has created a world of man-made things as it never existed before. He has constructed a complicated social machine to administer the technical machine he built. The more powerful and gigantic the forces are which he unleashes, the more powerless he feels himself as a human being. He is owned by his creations, and has lost ownership of himself.Erich Fromm Constructed Sayings By Erich Fromm: Alienation as we find it in modern society is almost total ... Man has created
The great moments of rock 'n' roll were never off in some corner of the music world, in a self-constructed ghetto.Bono Constructed Sayings By Bono: The great moments of rock 'n' roll were never off in some corner of the
The Besicovitch style is architectural. He builds out of simply elements a delicate and complicated architectural structure, usually with a hierarchical plan, and then, when the building is finished, the completed structure leads by simple arguments to an unexpected conclusion. Every Besicovitch proof is a work of art, as carefully constructed as a Bach fugue.Freeman Dyson Constructed Sayings By Freeman Dyson: The Besicovitch style is architectural. He builds out of simply elements a delicate and complicated
To ask about the 'source' of rights or morals assumes an erreous conclusion. To ask about the source of morals is to assume that such a source exists. As if it existed outside of human constructed systems. The 'source' is the human ability to learn from experience and to entrench rights in our laws and in our consciousness. Our rights come from our long history of wrongs.Alan Dershowitz Constructed Sayings By Alan Dershowitz: To ask about the 'source' of rights or morals assumes an erreous conclusion. To ask
This fundamental subject of Natural Selection will be treated at some length in the fourth chapter; and we shall then see how Natural Selection almost inevitably causes much Extinction of the less improved forms of life and induces what I have called Divergence of Character. In the next chapter I shall discuss the complex and little known laws of variation and of correlation of growth. In the four succeeding chapters, the most apparent and gravest difficulties on the theory will be given: namely, first, the difficulties of transitions, or in understanding how a simple being or a simple organ can be changed and perfected into a highly developed being or elaborately constructed organ; secondly the subject of Instinct, or the mental powers of animals, thirdly, Hybridism, or the infertility of species and the fertility of varieties when intercrossed; and fourthly, the imperfection of the Geological Record. InCharles Darwin Constructed Sayings By Charles Darwin: This fundamental subject of Natural Selection will be treated at some length in the fourth
I don't think I was constructed to be monogamous. I don't think it's the nature of any man to be monogamous. Men are propelled by genetically ordained impulses over which they have no control to distribute their seed into as many females as possible.Marlon Brando Constructed Sayings By Marlon Brando: I don't think I was constructed to be monogamous. I don't think it's the nature
It's quite fashionable to say that the educational system is broken. It's not broken. It's wonderfully constructed. It's just that we don't need it anymore.Sugata Mitra Constructed Sayings By Sugata Mitra: It's quite fashionable to say that the educational system is broken. It's not broken. It's
For Bohr the theory came first, then the philosophical position, the interpretation constructed to make sense of what the theory says about reality. Einstein knew that it was dangerous to build a philosophical worldview on the foundation of any scientific theory. If the theory is found wanting in the light of new experimental evidence, then the philosophical position it supports collapses with it. 'it is basic for physics that one assumes a real world existing independently from any act of perception', said Einstein. 'But this we do not know'.Manjit Kumar Constructed Sayings By Manjit Kumar: For Bohr the theory came first, then the philosophical position, the interpretation constructed to make
It struck me, sharp and hard, that I had been given so many chances to save my soul that my entire life had been constructed around these chances! That was my nature - going from temptation to temptation, not to sin, but to be redeemed.Anne Rice Constructed Sayings By Anne Rice: It struck me, sharp and hard, that I had been given so many chances to
I came to writing mysteries through poetry and still think that a well-constructed mystery is very much like a well-constructed sonnet. Both are artificial forms. Both start off in one direction and then, with a twist of the concluding couplet/surprising ending, both reveal that they were headed somewhere different all the time.Margaret Maron Constructed Sayings By Margaret Maron: I came to writing mysteries through poetry and still think that a well-constructed mystery is
A museum's meticulous presentation - exhaustive captions, hushed lighting, state-of-the-art armature - creates an institutional authority that is constructed to seem impregnable.Peter Landesman Constructed Sayings By Peter Landesman: A museum's meticulous presentation - exhaustive captions, hushed lighting, state-of-the-art armature - creates an institutional
Make it your goal to build strong foundations for your life - foundations constructed from prayer and the truths of God's Word.Billy Graham Constructed Sayings By Billy Graham: Make it your goal to build strong foundations for your life - foundations constructed from
Let no one expect anything of certainty from astronomy, lest if anyone take as true that which has been constructed for another use, he go away ... a bigger fool than when he came to it.Bill Vaughan Constructed Sayings By Bill Vaughan: Let no one expect anything of certainty from astronomy, lest if anyone take as true
Conservatism is constitutionally opposed to public reason, and this explains the abandon with which so many conservative pundits embrace flagrant simulations of reason, constructed through the methods of public relations, and exhibit so little regard for the real thing.Philip E. Agre Constructed Sayings By Philip E. Agre: Conservatism is constitutionally opposed to public reason, and this explains the abandon with which so
Examples of goodness that know no ethnic, religious, racial, or political bounds are important documents of war, as they also represent an axis around which a healthy future can be constructed after the atrocities have halted.Dario Spini Constructed Sayings By Dario Spini: Examples of goodness that know no ethnic, religious, racial, or political bounds are important documents
Yoga is a removal of the conscious awareness from the world as you know it - the world that you've constructed - through your focus within your mind, to something else.Frederick Lenz Constructed Sayings By Frederick Lenz: Yoga is a removal of the conscious awareness from the world as you know it
By the very notion that God does not exist an atheist embodies the idea of a supreme being by pondering the very existence he wishes to refute. How can you refute something you don't believe in? Just arguing against the nature of something implies it has attributes, which then must be recognized because only something that exists has these characteristic traits. Even if the idea of no God exists in the non-believers mind, his thoughts make him more insidious than those proffesing to believe because the idea of a God is now planted in his mind and he spends all his time dwelling on the nature of something that doesn't exist, giving creation to the very thing he opposes, he has constructed his own God and it haunts him because it is with him daily as a nagging and bitter irony, that his very own mind has created, god who shall dwell within him embittering and confounding him in perpetuity.Tom Hamilton Constructed Sayings By Tom Hamilton: By the very notion that God does not exist an atheist embodies the idea of
The ancient Romans had a tradition: whenever one of their engineers constructed an arch, as the capstone was hoisted into place, the engineer assumed accountability for his work in the most profound way possible: he stood under the arch.Michael Armstrong Constructed Sayings By Michael Armstrong: The ancient Romans had a tradition: whenever one of their engineers constructed an arch, as
Nature is a universal that is shareable by all, males and females, men and women, and can thus be of use in mediating between all. The same does not apply for already constructed worlds and cultures. They are neither universal nor easily shareable.Luce Irigaray Constructed Sayings By Luce Irigaray: Nature is a universal that is shareable by all, males and females, men and women,
He remembers the philosophers dead with detail, and how they honed their trade into the grave for the sake of their livelihoods. Incapable of audacity, they pleasured themselves with a maze constructed of nothing but dead-ends. They were so petrified they might happen upon the truth, might come to know something for certain, that they deployed some of their best minds to obliterate it, scattering its shards into infinity. But they were only trying to keep the dream alive, after all, fighting to keep the questions outnumbering the answers, picking away at the odd dropped stitch in an otherwise ever-tightening blanket of sacrosanct precision. They fought hard, if unwittingly, against the encroaching dullness of complete knowledge, but ultimately paid the price of becoming as dull as their enemy - at least the chemical truths of literature sometimes bothered to wear a suit and tie.Gary J. Shipley Constructed Sayings By Gary J. Shipley: He remembers the philosophers dead with detail, and how they honed their trade into the
There is something mystical in the proud man in the sense in which you use the words. You may be right from your point of view, but, if we look at it simple-mindedly, what room is there for pride? Is there any sense in it, when man is so poorly constructed from the physiological point of view, when the vast majority of us are so gross and stupid and profoundly unhappy? We must give up admiring ourselves. The only thing to do is to work.Anton Chekhov Constructed Sayings By Anton Chekhov: There is something mystical in the proud man in the sense in which you use
Fit the parts together, one into the other, and build your figure like a carpenter builds a house. Everything must be constructed, composed of parts that make a whole ...Henri Matisse Constructed Sayings By Henri Matisse: Fit the parts together, one into the other, and build your figure like a carpenter
this consciousness I'm describing is gendered (and I think it is), it is clearly feminine. The single most damaging and distorting thing that religion has done to faith involves overlooking, undervaluing, and even outright suppressing this interior, ulterior kind of consciousness. So much Western theology has been constructed on a fundamental disfigurement of the mind and reality. In neglecting the voices of women, who are more attuned to the immanent nature of divinity, who feel that eruption in their very bodies, theology has silenced a powerful - perhaps the most powerful - side of God.Christian Wiman Constructed Sayings By Christian Wiman: this consciousness I'm describing is gendered (and I think it is), it is clearly feminine.
At the end of the warehouse was a dais constructed from pallets of books: stack of vampire novels, walls of James Patterson thrillers, and a throne from about a thousand copies of something called The Five Habits of Highly Aggressive Women.Rick Riordan Constructed Sayings By Rick Riordan: At the end of the warehouse was a dais constructed from pallets of books: stack

When I was writing 'You Suck,' in 2006, I constructed the diction of the book's narrator, perky Goth girl Abby Normal, from what I read on Goth blog sites.Christopher Moore Constructed Sayings By Christopher Moore: When I was writing 'You Suck,' in 2006, I constructed the diction of the book's

MOSFETs can be constructed as either NMOS or PMOS types, based on the arrangement of doped silicon used. Silicon doped with boron is called P-type (positive) because it lacks electrons, whereas silicon doped with phosphorus is called N-type (negative) because it has an excess of free electrons.Scott Mueller Constructed Sayings By Scott Mueller: MOSFETs can be constructed as either NMOS or PMOS types, based on the arrangement of
ominous murmur ran through the legion of onlookers, who had heretofore maintained an uncharacteristic silence. Their resentment was palpable. Five days later Coligny was assassinated, and the streets of Paris ran with blood as the entire Huguenot wedding party was hunted down and slaughtered in one of the most infamous episodes in French history, known today as the Saint Bartholomew's Day Massacre. But this horrific mass murder, which claimed more than five thousand martyrs over the course of a week, was no spontaneous bloodletting. Rather, it was the denouement of a carefully constructed plot that utilized the unsuspecting Margot as both victim and bait to lure Coligny and his faction to their doom, an intrigue planned, instigated, and executed by the one individual in France powerful enoughNancy Goldstone Constructed Sayings By Nancy Goldstone: ominous murmur ran through the legion of onlookers, who had heretofore maintained an uncharacteristic silence.
Out of the simple consonants of the alphabet and our eleven vowels and diphthongs all possible syllables of a certain sort were constructed, a vowel sound being placed between two consonants.Hermann Ebbinghaus Constructed Sayings By Hermann Ebbinghaus: Out of the simple consonants of the alphabet and our eleven vowels and diphthongs all

Naturally, the books and research papers described the symptoms of Asperger's syndrome, and I formed a provisional conclusion that most of these were simply variations in human brain function that had been inappropriately medicalized because they did not fit social norms - constructed social norms - that reflected the most common human configurations rather than the full range.Graeme Simsion Constructed Sayings By Graeme Simsion: Naturally, the books and research papers described the symptoms of Asperger's syndrome, and I formed
If your guard is up, let it down. If you've constructed a defensive wall to protect yourself and keep all the bad guys out, don't forget who that wall also prevents from getting in - the good guys.Brendon Burchard Constructed Sayings By Brendon Burchard: If your guard is up, let it down. If you've constructed a defensive wall to
Mediocrity is 'purpose' left to rot in minds ensnared in the deluded rationalization that vision is nothing more than a collection of fanciful dreams constructed by an imaginary God.Craig D.

Buildings for me represent opportunities of agency, transformation, and storytelling. They are not just artifacts. There is this big tradition of buildings-as-artifacts - constructed artifacts - but for me they are these incredible sites of negotiation.David Adjaye Constructed Sayings By David Adjaye: Buildings for me represent opportunities of agency, transformation, and storytelling. They are not just artifacts.
The basis on which the Good Friday agreement was constructed was in addressing those problems in the history of Northern Ireland, the social and constitutional problems as well as the military problems that have been unaddressed for centuries.John Reid Constructed Sayings By John Reid: The basis on which the Good Friday agreement was constructed was in addressing those problems

My mother and I were like two continents moving slowly but inexorably apart; my father, the bridge builder, constantly extending the fragile edifice he had constructed to connect us.Diane Setterfield Constructed Sayings By Diane Setterfield: My mother and I were like two continents moving slowly but inexorably apart; my father,
The idea of "the authentic self," and how everyone is always talking about "being yourself," and how when you're yourself you get friends or you get boyfriends, and until you're yourself you don't. It's a crazy idea, because who's self would you otherwise be being? That relationship between constructed identities and identities that feel authentic to you is really fascinating to me. I think about it a lot.John Green Constructed Sayings By John Green: The idea of "the authentic self," and how everyone is always talking about "being yourself,"
We can see from the experience of Odin that the image of the tree was the template within which all of the sacred world could be apprehended. The tree was the framework within which one "flew" to these Otherworlds. And since the exploration of sacred space was also a quest into the nature of human consciousness, the tree was regarded as an image of the ways in which we, humans, are constructed psychically. It was a natural model for our deepest wisdom, our highest aspirations.Brian Bates Constructed Sayings By Brian Bates: We can see from the experience of Odin that the image of the tree was
The general picture was that Ymir would not be anything like the traditional idea of a spaceship, in the sense of an orderly, symmetrical piece of architecture. It would be more like a flying robotic anthill, constructed out of a natural found object. The robots crawling around on and in it had general instructions as to what they were supposed to be doing, but could make their own judgments from moment to moment to avoid collision with other robots, or from hour to hour as to when they needed to recharge their batteries.Neal Stephenson Constructed Sayings By Neal Stephenson: The general picture was that Ymir would not be anything like the traditional idea of

It was the face of a human being who'd been constructed exclusively of wounds. Not time or history or ambition, nothing but wounds. The face of a person who could probably kill someone without feeling anything whatsoever.Ryu Murakami Constructed Sayings By Ryu Murakami: It was the face of a human being who'd been constructed exclusively of wounds.
