Bell curves and random walks define what the future is going to look like.

There has been a powerful shift toward the idea that statistical ways of thinking are going to drive the future. — Peter Thiel

High Standard Sayings By Charles Stross: So you open your mouth and listen to yourself say, "I want eight thousand a So you open your mouth and listen to yourself say, "I want eight thousand a day. Plus expenses."
This is the polite, industry-standard way of saying "piss off, I'm not interested." You did the math over your morning coffee: You want to earn 100K a year, what with those bonuses you've been pulling on top of your salary. (Besides, a euro doesn't buy what it used to.) There are 250 working days in a year, and a contractor works for roughly 40 per cent of the time, so you need to charge yourself out at 2.5 times your payroll rate, or 1000 a day in order to meet your target. Not interested in the job? Pitch unrealistically high. You never know ...
"Done," says Mr. Pin-Stripe, staring at you expressionlessly. And it is at that point that you realize you are well and truly fucked. — Charles Stross

High Standard Sayings By John Stuart Mill: What little recognition the idea of obligation to the public obtains in modern morality is What little recognition the idea of obligation to the public obtains in modern morality is derived from Greek and Roman sources, not from Christian; as, even in the morality of private life, whatever exists of magnanimity, high-mindeness, personal dignity, even the sense of honor, is derived from the purely human, not the religious part of our education, and never could have grown out of a standard of ethics in which the only worth, professedly recognized, is that of obedience. — John Stuart Mill

High Standard Sayings By Ludwig Von Mises: History likewise shows that sometimes the 'monetary standard of the victors' can prove to be History likewise shows that sometimes the 'monetary standard of the victors' can prove to be very bad. There have seldom been more brilliant victories than those eventually achieved by the American insurgents under Washington against the English troops. But the American 'continental dollar did not benefit from them. The more proudly the star-spangled banner rose on high, the lower did the exchange-rate fall, until, at the very moment when the victory of the rebels was secured, the dollar became entirely valueless. The course of events was no different not long afterwards in France. In spite of the victories of the revolutionary army, the metal premium rose. — Ludwig Von Mises
High Standard Sayings By Esther Hicks: Find thoughts that feel good, because it is inevitable that you are going to always Find thoughts that feel good, because it is inevitable that you are going to always be moving toward something.

You provide it, whether you know you do, or not. The only question is, what is the standard of joy that you are demanding for yourself? From your Nonphysical perspective, it's a high, high standard. — Esther Hicks

High Standard Sayings By Washington Irving: It was his belief, furthermore, that this religion, so elevated and simple, had repeatedly been It was his belief, furthermore, that this religion, so elevated and simple, had repeatedly been corrupted and debased by man, and especially outraged by idolatry; wherefore a succession of prophets, each inspired by a revelation from the Most High, had been sent from time to time, and at distant periods, to restore it to its original purity. Such was Noah, such was Abraham, such was Moses, and such was Jesus Christ. By each of these, the true religion had been reinstated upon earth, but had again been vitiated by their followers. The faith, as taught and practiced by Abraham when he came out of the land of Chaldea, seems especially to have formed a religious standard in his mind, from his veneration for the patriarch as the father of Ishmael, the progenitor of his race. — Washington Irving

High Standard Sayings By Seamus Heaney: A ring-whorled prow rode in the harbour,ice-clad, outbound, a craft for a prince.They stretched their A ring-whorled prow rode in the harbour,
ice-clad, outbound, a craft for a prince.
They stretched their beloved lord in his boat,
laid out by the mast, amidships,
the great ring-giver. Far fetched treasures
were piled upon him, and precious gear.
I have never heard before of a ship so well furbished
with battle tackle, bladed weapons
and coats of mail. The massed treasure
was loaded on top of him: it would travel far
on out into the ocean's sway.
They decked his body no less bountifully
with offerings than those first ones did
who cast him away when he was a child
and launched him alone over the waves.
And they set a gold standard up
high above his head and let him drift
to wind and tide, bewailing him
and mourning their loss. No man can tell,
no wise man in hall or weathered veteran
knows for certain who salvaged that load. — Seamus Heaney
High Standard Sayings By Theodore Roosevelt: We stand for a living wage. Wages are subnormal if they fail to provide a We stand for a living wage. Wages are subnormal if they fail to provide a living for those who devote their time and energy to industrial occupations. The monetary equivalent of a living wage varies according to local conditions, but must include enough to secure the elements of a normal standard of living-a standard high enough to make morality possible, to provide for education and recreation, to care for immature members of the family, to maintain the family during periods of sickness, and to permit of reasonable saving for old age. — Theodore Roosevelt
High Standard Sayings By Leo Tolstoy: No, pardon me, I consider myself and people like me aristocrats: people who can point No, pardon me, I consider myself and people like me aristocrats: people who can point back to three or four honourable generations of their family, all with a high standard of education (talent and intelligence are a different matter), who have never cringed before anyone, never depended on anyone, but have lived as my father and my grandfather did. I know many such. You consider it mean for me to count the trees in my wood while you give Ryabinin thirty thousand roubles; but you will receive a Goernment grant and I don't know what other award, and I shan't, so I value what is mine by birth and labour ... We - and not those who only manage to exist by the bounty of the mighty of this world, and who can be bought for a piece of silver - are the aristocrats.
-Levin — Leo Tolstoy

High Standard Sayings By Robert M. Pirsig: A culture-bearing book, like a mule, bears the culture on its back. No one should A culture-bearing book, like a mule, bears the culture on its back. No one should sit down to write one deliberately. Culture-bearing books appear almost accidentally, like a sudden surge in the stock market. There are books of high quality that are a part of the culture, but that is not the same. They are a part of it. They aren't carrying it anywhere. They may talk about insanity sympathetically, for example, because that's the standard cultural attitude. But they don't carry any suggestion that insanity might be something other than sickness or degeneracy. — Robert M. Pirsig

High Standard Sayings By Jane Goodall: I don't think anybody has the right to a huge family. There's already more people I don't think anybody has the right to a huge family.

And this cannot be, so something has to change. — Jane Goodall

High Standard Sayings By Paul Graham: If you want to make money at some point, remember this, because this is one If you want to make money at some point, remember this, because this is one of the reasons startups win. Big companies want to decrease the standard deviation of design outcomes because they want to avoid disasters. But when you damp oscillations, you lose the high points as well as the low. This is not a problem for big companies, because they don't win by making great products. Big companies win by sucking less than other big companies. — Paul Graham
High Standard Sayings By Vito Fossella: Russia under President Putin is less democratic and less free today than when he assumed Russia under President Putin is less democratic and less free today than when he assumed office.

High Standard Sayings By Edith Wharton: Glennard did himself injustice. it was from the unexpected discovery of his own pettiness that Glennard did himself injustice. it was from the unexpected discovery of his own pettiness that he chiefly suffered. Our self-esteem is apt to be based on the hypothetical great act we have never had occasion to perform; and even the most self-scrutinizing modesty credits itself negatively with a high standard of conduct. Glennard had never thought himself a hero; but he had been certain that he was incapable of baseness. We all like our wrong-doings to have a becoming cut, to be made to order, as it were; and Glennard found himself suddenly thrust into a garb of dishonor surely meant for a meaner figure. — Edith Wharton

If anyone can set up a free voicecall to anyone else in the world, using the net, then we can all communicate with the same ease that's standard for the high and mighty. [ ... ]
And if any worker, anywhere, can communicate with any other worker, anywhere, for free, instantaneously, without the boss's permission, then, brother, look out, because the Coase cost of demanding better pay, better working conditions and a slice of the pie just got a *lot* cheaper. And the people who have the power aren't going to sit still and let a bunch of grunts take it away from them. — Cory Doctorow
High Standard Sayings By Krafft Arnold Ehricke: While civilization is more than a high material living standard it is nevertheless based on While civilization is more than a high material living standard it is nevertheless based on material abundance. It does not thrive on abject poverty or in an atmosphere of resignation and hopelessness. Therefore, the end objectives of solar system exploration are social objectives, in the sense that they relate to or are dictated by present and future human needs. — Krafft Arnold Ehricke
High Standard Sayings By Don DeLillo: I was not a happy runner. I did it to stay interested in my body, I was not a happy runner. I did it to stay interested in my body, to stay informed, and to set up clear lines of endeavor, a standard to meet, a limit to stay within. I was just enough of a puritan to think there must be some virtue in rigorous things, although I was careful not to overdo it. I never wore the clothes. the shorts, tank top, high socks. Just running shoes and a lightweight shirt and jeans. I ran disguised as an ordinary person. — Don DeLillo
High Standard Sayings By Jane Goodall: I understood why those who had lived through war or economic disasters, and who had I understood why those who had lived through war or economic disasters, and who had built for themselves a good life and a high standard of living, were rightly proud to be able to provide for their children those things which they themselves had not had. And why their children, inevitably, took those things for granted. It meant that new values and new expectations had crept into our societies along with new standards of living. Hence the materialistic and often greedy and selfish lifestyle of so many young people in the Western world, especially in the United States. — Jane Goodall
High Standard Sayings By Hannah Murray: I don't think there's any show comparable to 'Game of Thrones' in terms of the I don't think there's any show comparable to 'Game of Thrones' in terms of the way it does the fantasy element to such a high standard: everything is created with so much care and detail. You really feel like you are transported into this entirely other fictional place. — Hannah Murray

High Standard Sayings By Brian Greene: In this language, we've found that the cosmic cheese acquires more and more holes because In this language, we've found that the cosmic cheese acquires more and more holes because quantum processes knock the inflaton's value downward at a random assortment of locations. At the same time, the cheesy parts stretch ever larger because they're subject to inflationary expansion driven by the high inflaton field value they harbor. Taken together, the two processes yield an ever-expanding block of cosmic cheese riddled with an ever-growing number of holes. In the more standard language of cosmology, each hole is called a bubble universe (or a pocket universe). — Brian Greene
High Standard Sayings By Aja Naomi King: I really care about people, and I would need someone to also genuinely value other I really care about people, and I would need someone to also genuinely value other human beings and want to be connected with people in the world and to know about other cultures. That might not be a high standard for someone else, but for me, it's really important to try and stick to that. — Aja Naomi King
High Standard Sayings By Charles Darwin: The more efficient causes of progress seem to consist of a good education during youth The more efficient causes of progress seem to consist of a good education during youth whilst the brain is impressible, and of a high standard of excellence, inculcated by the ablest and best men, embodied in the laws, customs and traditions of the nation, and enforced by public opinion. — Charles Darwin
High Standard Sayings By Anthony Crosland: A high proportion of the population enjoys many of the 'luxuries' which until recently were A high proportion of the population enjoys many of the 'luxuries' which until recently were considered the prerogative of the rich; and the ordinary worker lives at what even two decades ago would have been considered in Britain a middle-class standard of life. — Anthony Crosland
High Standard Sayings By R. Buckminster Fuller: For man to go from less than 1% haves to 40%, living at high standard For man to go from less than 1% haves to 40%, living at high standard - despite decreasing resources - cannot be explained by anything other than by doing more than less. — R. Buckminster Fuller
High Standard Sayings By P. J. O'Rourke: The car provided Americans with an enviable standard of living. You could not get a The car provided Americans with an enviable standard of living.

High Standard Sayings By Ben Fountain: Don't talk about shit you don't know, Billy thinks, and therein lies the dynamic of Don't talk about shit you don't know, Billy thinks, and therein lies the dynamic of all such encounters, the Bravos speak from the high ground of experience. They are authentic. They are the Real. They have dealt much death and received much death and smelled it and held it and slopped through it in their boots, had it spattered on their clothes and tasted it in their mouths. That is their advantage, and given the masculine standard America has set for itself it is interesting how few actually qualify. Why we fight, yo, who is this we? Here in the chicken-hawk nation of blowhards and bluffers, Bravo always has the ace of bloods up its sleeve. — Ben Fountain
High Standard Sayings By Nate Silver: I don't play fantasy baseball anymore now because it's too much work, and I feel I don't play fantasy baseball anymore now because it's too much work, and I feel like I have to hold myself up to such a high standard.

High Standard Sayings By Alfie Kohn: Hence a report from Harvard's own "Committee on Raising the Standard": "Grades A and B Hence a report from Harvard's own "Committee on Raising the Standard": "Grades A and B are sometimes given too readily - Grade A for work of not very high merit, and Grade B for work not far above mediocrity ... One of the chief obstacles to raising the standards of the degree is the readiness with which insincere students gain passable grades by sham work." Except that report was written in - you saw this coming, didn't you? - 1894. — Alfie Kohn
High Standard Sayings By Stacey Marie Brown: Holy shit! Can we say unstable? Was I the only sane one around here? Well, Holy shit! Can we say unstable? Was I the only sane one around here?

High Standard Sayings By Og Mandino: And how will I accomplish this? First I will set goals for the day, the And how will I accomplish this? First I will set goals for the day, the week, the month, the year, and my life. Just as the rain must fall before the wheat will crack its shell and sprout, so must I have objectives before my life will crystallize. In setting my goals I will consider my best performance of the past and multiply it a hundredfold. This will be the standard by which I will live in the future. Never will I be of concern that my goals are too high for is it not better to aim my spear at the moon and strike only an eagle than to aim my spear at the eagle and strike only a rock? Today I will multiply my value a hundredfold. — Og Mandino
High Standard Sayings By Friedrich Hayek: It is one of the great tragedies of our time that the masses have come It is one of the great tragedies of our time that the masses have come to believe that they have reached their high standard of material welfare as a result of having pulled down the wealthy, and to fear that the preservation or emergence of such a class would deprive them of something they would otherwise get and which they regard as their due. — Friedrich Hayek
High Standard Sayings By Paul Arden: I watch TV more than I used to, and the commercials don't impress me. The I watch TV more than I used to, and the commercials don't impress me. The standard of execution is very high, but the standard of ideas is appalling. — Paul Arden
High Standard Sayings By Vanessa Mae: To even get to the Olympics, I have to qualify for the 2013 World Championships To even get to the Olympics, I have to qualify for the 2013 World Championships and the standard is high. I know I am always going to be a few points behind the top guys. — Vanessa Mae
High Standard Sayings By Ellen G. White: God brought the Israelites from Egypt, that he might establish them in the land of God brought the Israelites from Egypt, that he might establish them in the land of Canaan, a pure, holy, and happy people. In the accomplishment of this object he subjected them to a course of discipline, both for their own good and for the good of their posterity. Had they been willing to deny appetite, in obedience to his wise restrictions, feebleness and disease would have been unknown among them. Their descendants would have possessed both physical and mental strength. They would have had clear perceptions of truth and duty, keen discrimination, and sound judgment. But their unwillingness to submit to the restrictions and requirements of God, prevented them, to a great extent, from reaching the high standard which he desired them to attain, and from receiving the blessings which he was ready to bestow upon them. [379] — Ellen G. White

High Standard Sayings By Lauren Myracle: Hey what?' Tyson said. 'Why? What do you need a gurney for?''Standard procedure,' the EMT Hey what?' Tyson said. 'Why? What do you need a gurney for?'
'Standard procedure,' the EMT said.
'What do you mean, standard procedure?' Tyson said. 'She's fine. She's hardly bleeding, see?'
Hardly bleeding? Her bandage was soaked through.
'Suicide watch,' the EMT said curtly. 'Someone who tries to kill herself isn't "fine."'
She strapped Starrla to the gurney. Starrla's skirt rode too high, and Wren, ridiculously, wanted to fix it for her. She didn't know how to fix things, though. She didn't know how to fix anything. — Lauren Myracle
High Standard Sayings By Kurt Richebacher: The key reason why we are richer than our ancestors is that these ancestors have The key reason why we are richer than our ancestors is that these ancestors have bequeathed us buildings, factories and machines that have given us a high living standard to start with. Driven by irresponsible policy makers, America's present generation is consuming the nation's capital. — Kurt Richebacher
High Standard Sayings By Colleen Coble: Women are indoctrinated from infancy about beauty. We feel we must be Superwoman and have Women are indoctrinated from infancy about beauty. We feel we must be Superwoman and have it all: beauty, brains, a good work ethic, great with children, a good cook. The list is long, isn't it? I think it's particularly hard for women to accept the unconditional love God offers. We are so used to being held to such a high standard - and failing - that we feel we can never measure up. What a blessing when we realize that we don't have to. God loves us, warts and all. We are safe in his arms. Safe to tell him our dreams, our fears, our failings. Safe to relax in his unconditional love. — Colleen Coble
High Standard Sayings By Fyodor Dostoyevsky: Of course, I hated my fellow clerks one and all, and I despised them all, Of course, I hated my fellow clerks one and all, and I despised them all, yet at the same time I was, as it were, afraid of them. In fact, it happened at times that I thought more highly of them than of myself. It somehow happened quite suddenly that I alternated between despising them and thinking them superior to myself. A cultivated and decent man cannot be vain without setting a fearfully high standard for himself, and without despising and almost hating himself at certain moments. But whether I despised them or thought them superior I dropped my eyes almost every time I met anyone. I even made experiments whether I could face so and so's looking at me, and I was always the first to drop my eyes. — Fyodor Dostoyevsky
High Standard Sayings By Agatha Christie: It was not until I was over twenty that I realised that my home standard It was not until I was over twenty that I realised that my home standard had been unusually high and that actually I was quite as quick or quicker than the average. Inarticulate I shall always be. It is probably one of the causes that have made made me a writer. — Agatha Christie
High Standard Sayings By Christian D. Larson: To keep any great nation up to a high standard of civilization there must be To keep any great nation up to a high standard of civilization there must be enough superior characters to hold the balance of power, but the very moment the balance of power gets into the hands of second-rate men and women, a decline of that nation is inevitable. — Christian D. Larson
High Standard Sayings By Collin Raye: Country music and the world will miss George Jones. He was someone who set a Country music and the world will miss George Jones. He was someone who set a high standard in our industry for great music and lyrics that tapped into the emotions of the human heart at a very deep level. His music has touched the lives of country music lovers for over five decades. My prayers are with his family and I pray for the repose of his soul. May you rest in peace, brother. — Collin Raye
High Standard Sayings By Ayn Rand: Let anyone who believes that a high standard of living is the achievement of labor Let anyone who believes that a high standard of living is the achievement of labor unions and government controls ask himself the following question: If one had a "time machine" and transported the united labor chieftains of America, plus three million government bureaucrats, back to the tenth century - would they be able to provide the medieval serf with electric light, refrigerators, automobiles, and television sets? — Ayn Rand
High Standard Sayings By Anonymous: If I was in the US and had a serious medical condition, I would prefer If I was in the US and had a serious medical condition, I would prefer to fly to Kuala Lumpur, Singapore or Bangkok to receive treatment. Not only would I save thousands of dollars, (even with the airfare), but I think that the care that I would receive would be superior - and this from a nurse-manager retired from the U.S. healthcare system! I would say the same for dental care as well - it's cheap and of a high standard. — Anonymous
