#9. The required techniques of effective reasoning are pretty formal, but as long as programming is done by people that don't master them, the software crisis will remain with us and will be considered an incurable disease.

Incurable Disease quotes by Edsger Dijkstra

#12. To a psychoanalyst, a woman pilot, particularly a married one with children, must prove an interesting as well as an inexhaustible subject.

Incurable Disease quotes by Louise Thaden

Incurable Disease quotes by Laetitia Pilkington
#19. We're a people who pollute the very air we breathe. And our rivers. We're destroying the great lakes; Erie is already gone, and now we've begun on the oceans. We filled our atmosphere with radioactive fallout that put poison into our children's bones, and we knew it. We've made bombs that can wipe out humanity in minutes, and they are aimed and ready to fire. We ended polio, and then the United States Army bred new strains of germs that can cause fatal, incurable disease. We had a chance to do justice to our Negroes, and when they asked it, we refused. In Asia we burned people alive, we really did. We allow children to grow up malnourished in the United States. We allow people to make money by using our television channels to pursued our own children to smoke, knowing what it is going to do to them. This is a time when it becomes harder and harder to continue telling yourself that we are still good people. We hate each other. And we're used to it. - Author: Jack Finney
Incurable Disease quotes by Jack Finney
#20. If you're unable to catch it in time, the cancer can spread to the lymph nodes and at that point, the cancer is essentially incurable, but that doesn't mean your condition can't be improved. - Author: Len Dawson
Incurable Disease quotes by Len Dawson
#21. Nursing is a kind of mania; a fever in the blood; an incurable disease which, once contracted, cannot be got out of the system. If it was not like that, there would be no hospital nurses, for compared dispassionately with other professions, the hours are long, the work hard, and the pay inadequate to the amount of concentrated energy required.
A nurse, however, does not view her profession dispassionately. It is too much a part of her. - Author: Monica Dickens
Incurable Disease quotes by Monica Dickens
#22. There is no such thing as an incurable disease, only incurable people. - Author: Bernie Siegel
Incurable Disease quotes by Bernie Siegel
#23. Some cancers are curable, while others are highly incurable. The spectrum is enormous. Metastatic pancreatic cancer is a highly incurable disease, whereas some leukemia forms are very curable. There is a big difference between one form and another. - Author: Siddhartha Mukherjee
Incurable Disease quotes by Siddhartha Mukherjee
#24. Falling in love is like catching an incurable disease. Yeah, maybe that doesn't sounds so romantic, but it's true. It's incurable and it's contagious as shit. It makes you want to have babies and raise kittens, pet butterfly wings and sleep with your head on somebody else's chest. Love ... man, it fucks with everything you are and everything you want to be. I like it and hate it. - Author: C.M. Stunich
Incurable Disease quotes by C.M. Stunich

#27. I'm an incurable romantic, and Casablanca's one of the most romantic pictures I've ever seen - the combination of Bogart and Bergman is just magical. - Author: Ken Adam
Incurable Disease quotes by Ken Adam
#28. The central values by which most men have lived, in a great many lands at a great many times - these values, almost if not entirely universal, are not always harmonious with each other. Some are, some are not. Men have always craved for liberty, security, equality, happiness, justice, knowledge, and so on. But complete liberty is not compatible with complete equality - if men were wholly free, the wolves would be free to eat the sheep. Perfect equality means that human liberties must be restrained so that the ablest and the most gifted are not permitted to advance beyond those who would inevitably lose if there were competition. Security, and indeed freedoms, cannot be preserved if freedom to subvert them is permitted. Indeed, not everyone seeks security or peace, otherwise some would not have sought glory in battle or in dangerous sports.
Justice has always been a human ideal, but it is not fully compatible with mercy. Creative imagination and spontaneity, splendid in themselves, cannot be fully reconciled with the need for planning, organization, careful and responsible calculation. Knowledge, the pursuit of truth - the noblest of aims - cannot be fully reconciled with the happiness or the freedom that men desire, for even if I know that I have some incurable disease this will not make me happier or freer. I must always choose: between peace and excitement, or knowledge and blissful ignorance. And so on...
If these ultimate human values by which we live are to be - Author: Isaiah Berlin
Incurable Disease quotes by Isaiah Berlin
#29. I am involved with so many charitable organizations. Lung Cancer because of my dad, Breast Cancer because as a woman and mother of two daughters I have to be, Lupus for my sister, Crohn's disease for a dear friend, as well as Oceana and The Plastic Pollution Coalition because we have to be responsible to save the planet! - Author: Lois Robbins
Incurable Disease quotes by Lois Robbins
#30. In a chapter of the Internal Medicine Classic entitled 'The Oldest Truth', it is written: 'When one empties the mind and frees it of all desires, the genuine energy arises. If one maintains an undisturbed spirit within, no disease will occur. - Author: Daniel Reid
Incurable Disease quotes by Daniel  Reid
#31. Norway, Iceland, Australia, Canada, Sweden, Switzerland, Belgium, Japan, the Netherlands, Denmark, and the United Kingdom are among the least religious societies on [E]arth. According to the United Nations' Human Development Report (2005) they are also the healthiest, as indicated by life expectancy, adult literacy, per capita income, educational attainment, gender equality, homicide rate, and infant mortality. Insofar as there is a crime problem in Western Europe, it is largely the product of immigration. Seventy percent of the inmates of France's jails, for instance, are Muslim. The Muslims of Western Europe are generally not atheists. Conversely, the fifty nations now ranked lowest in terms of the United Nations' [H]uman [D]evelopment [I]ndex are unwaveringly religious.
Other analyses paint the same picture: the United States is unique among wealthy democracies in its level of religious adherence; it is also uniquely beleaguered by high rates of homicide, abortion, teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted disease, and infant mortality. The same comparison holds true within the United States itself: Southern and Midwestern states, characterized by the highest levels of religious literalism, are especially plagued by the above indicators of societal dysfunction, while the comparatively secular states of the Northeast conform to European norms. - Author: Sam Harris
Incurable Disease quotes by Sam Harris
#32. Good medicine is bitter to the mouth, but has an effect on the disease. Faithful words hurt one's ears, but have value for one's conduct. - Author: Takeda Nobushige
Incurable Disease quotes by Takeda Nobushige
#33. The passion for setting people right is in itself an afflictive disease. - Author: Marianne Moore
Incurable Disease quotes by Marianne Moore
#34. To my grandmother, chagrin was a genuine physical disease. Like a hurt leg or a broken arm. To treat chagrin, you drank tea from leaves that only my grandmother and other old wise women could recognize. - Author: Edwidge Danticat
Incurable Disease quotes by Edwidge Danticat
#35. Do your heart's calling, dear dreamer or be doomed forever in the fire of unfulfilled wishes, a soul disease. - Author: Aporva Kala
Incurable Disease quotes by Aporva Kala
#36. It was then that stories of the dreaming disease began to circulate more widely. We heard from our customers of a girl who smelled of cooking oil, who remembered all the wars ever fought. She could recall and recount every death, every rape, every wound, every moment of suffering that had ever been inflicted by a member of her ancestral lineage. The only place she could find relief from this barrage of collective memory was in water. - Author: Larissa Lai
Incurable Disease quotes by Larissa Lai
#37. For he was firmly of the conviction that the body was more susceptible to disease without the presence of love to warm the organs. - Author: Julia Stuart
Incurable Disease quotes by Julia Stuart
#38. Do you know that disease and death must needs overtake us, no matter what we are doing? ... what do you wish to be doing when it overtakes you? ... If you have anything better to be doing when you are so overtaken, get to work on that. - Author: Epictetus
Incurable Disease quotes by Epictetus
#39. A temperate Diet frees from Diseases; such are seldom ill, but if they are surprised with Sickness, they bear it better, and recover sooner; for most Distempers have their Original from Repletion. - Author: Benjamin Franklin
Incurable Disease quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#40. Stronger than lover's love is lover's hate. Incurable, in each, the wounds they make. - Author: Euripides
Incurable Disease quotes by Euripides
#41. He mistook my frustration for anger towards him, which seemed to be typical for us lately. The longer the distance between a correct diagnosis, the greater the silence we shared. - Author: Tracey Berkowitz
Incurable Disease quotes by Tracey Berkowitz
#42. We've tried calling sin "errors" or mistakes" or "poor judgment," but sin itself has stayed the same. No matter how we try to salve our conscience, we've known all along that men are still sinners; and the results of sin are still disease, disappointment, disillusionment, despair, and death. - Author: Billy Graham
Incurable Disease quotes by Billy Graham
#43. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease, and I'm sensitive. - Author: Cara Delevingne
Incurable Disease quotes by Cara Delevingne
#44. Yet, despite their many surgeries and jobs, most of them looked like old girls – girls who had suffered some wasting disease. These same things, breasts and botox, like independence and immodesty, had been powerful and shameful a few short years back, put in the same category as an extra toe or a stutter; they were quaint now. - Author: Meghna Pant
Incurable Disease quotes by Meghna Pant
#45. Testing stools for C. diff in patients after they have finished their Flagyl or Vanco for 10 days and after their bowel movements have returned to normal (that is, formed and not watery) is a waste of time and money, and is not helpful to the doctor or patient. - Author: J. Thomas LaMont
Incurable Disease quotes by J. Thomas LaMont
#46. The 'cleverness' syndrome has taken the place of melody. It's like everyone has come down with this terrible disease in jazz ... you are always expected to do your own material, which is a strange thing to do if you're a poor composer but a great player. - Author: Keith Jarrett
Incurable Disease quotes by Keith Jarrett
#47. For the first time, I understood the ancients' need to find explanations for why things happen. It's a quintessential human imperative. Random is not emotionally satisfying. Therefore, lightning was the bolt from an angry god. Crop failure was punishment for failing to honor the gods with a fatted calf. The plague happened because you took the Lord's name in vain or coveted your neighbor's wife. Going to church regularly and praying could forestall illness. And on and on. - Author: Alanna Mitchell
Incurable Disease quotes by Alanna Mitchell
#48. We're in essence allowing our spirit to come to terms with all the conflicts that we build within ourselves. Disease is after all a conflict within the tissue itself. Memory fading within the tissue, conflict of our actions or thoughts, our lives are not seamlessly running together in some way for ourselves, and had not been for a long time before we get to the critical point of a disease. - Author: Maya Tiwari
Incurable Disease quotes by Maya Tiwari
#49. Call it an issue. Call it baggage. But I really hated lies. They're ugly things, festering like wounds, spreading like disease. They're winner-less crimes that hurt everybody in the end. - Author: Cora Carmack
Incurable Disease quotes by Cora Carmack
#50. What can't you bear?'

'This island,' Gabe says. He breathes a long pause between every word he says. 'That house you and Finn are in. People talking. The fish - goddamn fish. I'll smell like them for the rest of my life. The horses. Everything. I can't do it any more.'

. . . It feels like he's confessed that he's dying of a disease I've never heard of, with symptoms I can't see. - Author: Maggie Stiefvater
Incurable Disease quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#51. We're all unique and individual biochemically, but there are certain rules that if you violate them, you're going to have disease in the body. If you're aligned with them, you're going to have an abundance of energy and vitality and health. - Author: Tony Robbins
Incurable Disease quotes by Tony Robbins
#52. The disease and its medicine are like two factions in a besieged town; they tear one another to pieces, but both unite against their common enemy, Nature. - Author: Francis Jeffrey, Lord Jeffrey
Incurable Disease quotes by Francis Jeffrey, Lord Jeffrey

Incurable Disease quotes by Vicki Covington
#54. On this journey with our disease we may experience all of the emotions I listed and more, including feeling hopeless about the present and about the future, but our God f hope quietly and tenderly reminds us to hope even when everything feels hopeless. - Author: Rebecca VanDeMark
Incurable Disease quotes by Rebecca VanDeMark
#55. The most costly disease is boredom costly for both individual and society. - Author: Norman Cousins
Incurable Disease quotes by Norman Cousins
#56. Artistic temperament is the disease that afflicts amateurs. - Author: Gilbert K. Chesterton
Incurable Disease quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#57. It's my experience that people are a lot more sympathetic if they can see you hurting, and for the millionth time in my life I wish for measles or smallpox or some other easily understood disease just to make it easier on me and also on them. - Author: Jennifer Niven
Incurable Disease quotes by Jennifer Niven
#58. The health benefits of paid sick days policies are obvious. They prevent the spread of disease. But the impact is wider. If a working mom or dad loses a job because of sickness, the family may slip into poverty. - Author: Madeleine M. Kunin
Incurable Disease quotes by Madeleine M. Kunin
#59. But science should be based in fact, not fashion. And policy should be based on science. Facts shouldn't change. And indeed, they don't. But their interpretation does. Consider the idea that inflammation causes heart disease. First espoused in the late 1800s after the invention of aspirin by Bayer, this idea was relegated to the dustbin of medical science in favor of the cholesterol hypothesis, which reigned for the second half of the twentieth century. But over the last decade, the "inflammation hypothesis" has made a decided comeback, and is now thought to be the primary factor in the genesis of atherosclerotic plaques and thrombosis. - Author: John Yudkin
Incurable Disease quotes by John Yudkin
#60. Imagine having a disease so overwhelming that your mind causes you to want to murder yourself. Imagine having a malignant disorder that no one understands. Imagine having a dangerous affliction that even you can't control or suppress. Imagine all the people living life in peace. Imagine the estate of John Lennon not suing me for using that last line. Then imagine that same (often fatal) disease being one of the most misunderstood disorders ... one that so few want to talk about and one that so many of us can never completely escape from. - Author: Jenny Lawson
Incurable Disease quotes by Jenny Lawson
#61. He never understood, as I did, what she meant when she said that medication would only mask the pain, not make it go away, and what's the point of that. He never understood when she said that if she went to a doctor, the doctor would only invent a disease that would explain why he couldn't help her. And there was so much time between episodes. There was so much hope. - Author: Garth Stein
Incurable Disease quotes by Garth Stein
#62. His eyes fluttered shut, and he was quiet so long I thought he had fallen asleep, but then he said, in a voice so soft I could barely hear: "Love is not a disease. I'm not completely certain she was right, but I cannot let them cut you out of me, nor her either. I will cling to my sickness... if it is a sickness... I will hold it close to me like the... the sun... and the..."
He faded away again, this time for good.
The sky outside was blue, cold, and very far away; the sun to bright to look at, let alone hold close to me. "But I will try, uncle," I murmured, "though it burns me. I will keep it close. - Author: Rachel Hartman
Incurable Disease quotes by Rachel Hartman
#63. Dedicated researchers seek better treatments and cures for diabetes, kidney disease, Alzheimer's and every form of cancer. But these scientists face an array of disincentives. We can do better. - Author: Michael Milken
Incurable Disease quotes by Michael Milken
#64. Hundreds of studies have shown that people overrate their health, leadership ability, intelligence, professional competence, sporting prowess, and managerial skills. People also hold the nonsensical belief that they are inherently lucky. Most people think they are more likely than the average person to attain a good first job, to have gifted children, and to live to a ripe old age. They also think that they are less likely than the average person to be the victim of an accident, crime, disease, depression, unwanted pregnancy, or earthquake. Why - Author: Steven Pinker
Incurable Disease quotes by Steven Pinker

Incurable Disease quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#68. In Russia they have a strange disease. It makes membrane grow across the sick person's throat, and they start to choke. there's less and less air until they eventually die. They treat it with a strange gizmo, A little silver tube. the membrane can't tolerate silver. The healer inserts the little silver tube in the patient's throat and he breaths through it until it gets over the illness. You're my little silver tube. With you, I have started breathing. - Author: Dmitry Glukhovsky
Incurable Disease quotes by Dmitry Glukhovsky
#69. Women have always been the most important part of monster movies. As I walked home one night, I realized why. Making my way down dark city streets to my apartment in Brooklyn, I was alert and on edge. I was looking for suspicious figures, men that could be rapists, muggers or killers. I felt like Laurie Strode in Halloween. Horror is a pressure valve for society's fears and worries: monsters seeking to control our bodies, villains trying to assail us in the darkness, disease and terror resulting from the consequences of active sexuality, death. These themes are the staple of horror films.

There are people who witness these problems only in scary movies. But for much of the population, what is on the screen is merely an exaggerated version of their everyday lives. These are forces women grapple with daily. Watching Nancy Thompson escape Freddy Krueger's perverted attacks reminds me of how I daily fend off creeps asking me to smile for them on the subway. Women are the most important part of horror because, by and large, women are the ones the horror happens to. Women have to endure it, fight it, survive it - in the movies and in real life. They are at risk of attack from real-life monsters. In America, a woman is assaulted every nine seconds.

Horror films help explore these fears and imagine what it would be like to conquer them. Women need to see themselves fighting monsters. That's part of how we figure out our stories. But we also need to see ourse - Author: Mallory O'Meara
Incurable Disease quotes by Mallory O'Meara
#70. We know about as much about software quality problems as they knew about the Black Plague in the 1600s. We've seen the victims' agonies and helped burn the corpses. We don't know what causes it; we don't really know if there is only one disease. We just suffer - and keep pouring our sewage into our water supply. - Author: Tom Van Vleck
Incurable Disease quotes by Tom Van Vleck
#71. Damp, which is the most insidious of all enemies ... swells the wood, furs the kettle, rusts the irohn, rots the stone. So gradual is the process, that it is not until we pick up some chest of drawers, or coal scuttle, and the whole thing drops to pieces in our hands, that we even suspect the disease is at work ... But the change did not stop at outward things. The damp struck within. Men felt the chill in their hearts; the damp in their minds. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Incurable Disease quotes by Virginia Woolf
#72. In the last analysis, human security means a child who did not die, a disease that did not spread, an ethnic tension that did not explode, a dissident who was not silenced, a human spirit that was not crushed. - Author: Mahbub Ul Haq
Incurable Disease quotes by Mahbub Ul Haq
#73. Good nutrition and vitamins do not directly cure disease, the body does. You provide the raw materials and the inborn wisdom of your body makes the repairs. Someday healthcare without megavitamin therapy will be seen as we today see childbirth without sanitation or surgery without anaesthetic. - Author: Andrew W. Saul
Incurable Disease quotes by Andrew W. Saul
#74. I still have the actor's disease. I always think I'll never get another job. - Author: Roddy McDowall
Incurable Disease quotes by Roddy McDowall
