#1. We must evaluate the political sympathies of other states and the effect war may have on them. To assess these things in all their ramifications and diversity is plainly a colossal task. Rapid and correct appraisal of them clearly calls for the intuition of a genius; to master all this complex mass by sheer methodical examination is obviously impossible. Bonaparte was quite right when he said that Newton himself would quail before the algebraic problems it could pose. - Author: Carl Von Clausewitz
Methodical quotes by Carl Von Clausewitz

Methodical quotes by Ivan Turgenev
#5. Failure is also a test of dedication. It is a way to measure what you are passionate about and how deep that passion runs and how dependable it is. Science may seem methodical but it demands passion. - Author: Stuart Firestein
Methodical quotes by Stuart Firestein
#6. The main thing now was to find the steering wheel. At first, Billy windmilled his arms, hoping to find it by luck. When that didn't work, he became methodical, working in such a way that the wheel could not possibly escape him. He placed himself hard against the left-hand door, searched every square inch of the area before him. When he failed to find the wheel, he moved over six inches, and searched again. Amazingly, he was eventually hard against the right-hand door, without having found the wheel. He concluded that somebody had stolen it. This angered him as he passed out. He was in the back seat of his car, which was why he couldn't find the steering wheel. - Author: Kurt Vonnegut
Methodical quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#7. This girl wasn't tapping her fingers restlessly, though. Her movements were methodical. Synchronized. Sitting far enough to the left of her to study her profile, I watched her chin bob, so subtly it was almost undetectable – and at some point, I realized that when her expression was remote and her fingers were moving, she was hearing music. She was playing music.
It was the most magical thing I'd ever seen anyone do. - Author: Tammara Webber
Methodical quotes by Tammara Webber
#8. One of the most stubborn barriers to patient empowerment is the cultural assumption that since the way professionals learned was hard, you must need to be really smart, and you need to be taught in a carefully thought out, methodical sequence. - Author: Dave DeBronkart
Methodical quotes by Dave DeBronkart
#9. That's how I approach just about everything. I spend my life getting ready to play "Rocket Man." I picture the most demanding challenge; I visualize what I would need to know how to do to meet it; then I practice until I reach a level of competence where I'm comfortable that I'll be able to perform. It's what I've always done, ever since I decided I wanted to be an astronaut in 1969, and that conscious, methodical approach to preparation is the main reason I got to Houston. I never stopped getting ready. Just in case. - Author: Chris Hadfield
Methodical quotes by Chris Hadfield
#10. There nearly always is method in madness. It's what drives men mad, being methodical. And he never goes on sitting there after sunset, with the whole place getting dark. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Methodical quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#11. If I love order, it's not the mark of a character subjected to an inner discipline, a repression of the instincts. In me the idea of an absolutely regular world, symmetrical and methodical, is associated with that first impulse and burgeoning of nature.
The rest of your images that associate passion with disorder, love with intemperate overflow - river fire whirlpool volcano - are for me memories of nothingness and listlessness and boredom. - Author: Italo Calvino
Methodical quotes by Italo Calvino
#12. In our methodical American life, we still recognize some magic in summer. Most persons at least resign themselves to being decently happy in June. They accept June. They compliment its weather. They complain of the earlier months as cold, and so spend them in the city; and they complain of the later months as hot, and so refrigerate themselves on some barren sea-coast. God offers us yearly a necklace of twelve pearls; most men choose the fairest, label it June, and cast the rest away. - Author: Thomas Wentworth Higginson
Methodical quotes by Thomas Wentworth Higginson
#13. The mechanical clock changed the way we saw ourselves. And like the map, it changed the way we thought. Once the clock had redefined time as a series of units of equal duration, our minds began to stress the methodical mental work of division and measurement. - Author: Nicholas Carr
Methodical quotes by Nicholas Carr
#14. Nothing helps make a leader more approachable than admitting your struggles, screw-ups and behind-the-scenes thinking on hard calls. If the leader makes this a priority, the whole company will be more open and methodical learning from failure. - Author: Scott Weiss
Methodical quotes by Scott Weiss
#15. I really liked the food in Japan. There is something so organized, neat, and methodical about it. They put a lot of care and quality into their cooking. I also love Mediterranean, New American, and Italian food, because the cuisines borrow influences from all over the world. - Author: Sasha Cohen
Methodical quotes by Sasha Cohen
#16. I've always had a 'Work hard, play hard' attitude to life - I still do - but sometimes you get involved in something that needs a calm, methodical approach. - Author: Damian Lewis
Methodical quotes by Damian Lewis
#17. Science is an inherent contradiction - systematic wonder - applied to the natural world. In its mundane form, the methodical instinct prevails and the result, an orderly procession of papers, advances the perimeter of knowledge, step by laborious step. Great scientific minds partake of that daily discipline and can also suspend it, yielding to the sheer love of allowing the mental engine to spin free. And then Einstein imagines himself riding a light beam, Kekule formulates the structure of benzene in a dream, and Fleming's eye travels past the annoying mold on his glassware to the clear ring surrounding it - a lucid halo in a dish otherwise opaque with bacteria - and penicillin is born. Who knows how many scientific revolutions have been missed because their potential inaugurators disregarded the whimsical, the incidental, the inconvenient inside the laboratory? - Author: Thomas Lewis
Methodical quotes by Thomas Lewis
#18. 'Robopocalypse' explores the intertwined fates of regular people who face a future filled with murderous machines. It follows them as humanity foments the robot uprising, fails to recognize the coming storm, and then is rocked to the core by methodical, crippling attacks. - Author: Daniel H. Wilson
Methodical quotes by Daniel H. Wilson
#19. Negativity is a debilitating disease. It is a slow and painful way to experience life. It attacks the immune system, creates anxiety, and can lead to loneliness and depression. Finding your inner harmony is the quickest way to alleviate the methodical destruction of this dark energy - Author: Gary Hopkins
Methodical quotes by Gary Hopkins
#20. He was a great man, my granddad, a very calm, logical and methodical guy. I suppose I'm trying to be more like him as I get older. - Author: Steven Hall
Methodical quotes by Steven Hall
#21. Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it. - Plato - Author: Peter Atkins
Methodical quotes by Peter Atkins
#22. His swearing is methodical, continuous, and apparently entirely senseless. - Author: Mikhail Bulgakov
Methodical quotes by Mikhail Bulgakov
#23. Cambridge was run by a mixture of fogeys too old to be considered dangerous, and Puritans who had been packed into the place by Cromwell after he'd purged all the people he did consider dangerous. With a few exceptions such as Isaac Barrow, none of them would have had any use for Isaac's sundial, because it didn't look like an old sundial, and they'd prefer telling time wrong the Classical way to telling it right the newfangled way. The curves that Newton plotted on the wall were a methodical document of their wrongness - a manifesto like Luther's theses on the church-door. - Author: Neal Stephenson
Methodical quotes by Neal Stephenson
#24. I've learned that I can pretty much do anything I've wanted to as long as I was methodical and diligent about it. It may not sound very exciting really, but it works. - Author: Jamie Hyneman
Methodical quotes by Jamie Hyneman
#25. Age is a peculiar kind of thief. It slips up on you and steps inside your skin and is so quiet and methodical in its work that you never realize it has stolen your youth until you look into the mirror one morning and see a man you don't recognize. - Author: James Lee Burke
Methodical quotes by James Lee Burke
#26. I never thought about my image. It interests me that there are people who do, that they seem to be methodical about it. Maybe things would have gone differently for me in some ways if I had. - Author: Alan Alda
Methodical quotes by Alan Alda
#27. I've never thought much of strictly organised and methodical study. You can't arrange a library in alphabetical order until you've collected one. - Author: Walter Moers
Methodical quotes by Walter Moers
#28. Sometimes I tend to think in very methodical, very concise terms. - Author: Gloria Estefan
Methodical quotes by Gloria Estefan
#29. For millions of people, "wealth" amounts to little more than a few weeks' wages in a checking account or low-interest savings account, a car, and a few pieces of furniture. The inescapable reality is this: wealth is so concentrated that a large segment of society is virtually unaware of its existence, so that some people imagine that it belongs to surreal or mysterious entities. That is why it is so essential to study capital and its distribution in a methodical, systematic way. - Author: Thomas Piketty
Methodical quotes by Thomas Piketty
#30. But Gedalah had something in mind. He sent four men to collect a dozen pumpkins, and he had them set in the pylons that supported the overhead power line that ran the train, one pumpkin to each pylon.
"What are they for?" Mendel asked.
"Nothing," Gedaleh said. "They're there to make the Germans wonder why they're there. We've wasted maybe two minutes; they're methodical, they'll waste a lot more. - Author: Primo Levi
Methodical quotes by Primo Levi
#31. I think I've had the slowest, most methodical career in the business. - Author: Chris Isaak
Methodical quotes by Chris Isaak
#32. When it is recalled that until the Christian era the underworld was never regardded as a hostile area, that all gods were useful and essentially friendly to man despite occasional lapsesl when we see the steady methodical inculcation into humanity of the idea of man's worthlesseness - until redeemed - the necessity of the Devil may become evident as a weapon, a weapon designed and used time and time again in every age to whip men into a surrender to a particular church or church state. - Author: Arthur Miller
Methodical quotes by Arthur Miller
#33. When you're young you try to be methodical and philosophical, but reality keeps breaking in. - Author: Randall Jarrell
Methodical quotes by Randall Jarrell
#34. Some men believe a girl squirting under their touch is a sign of their own sex appeal and machismo. It seems a shame to pee on their parade, but the truth is, the methodical throb of a vibrator in the right place and in the right hands – even your own hand – achieves more consistent results. - Author: Chloe Thurlow
Methodical quotes by Chloe Thurlow
#35. The first and foremost duty of the high school in teaching mathematics is to emphasize methodical work in problem solving ... The teacher who wishes to serve equally all his students, future users and nonusers of mathematics, should teach problem solving so that it is about one-third mathematics and two-thirds common sense. - Author: George Polya
Methodical quotes by George Polya
#36. The nice word for you is methodical. Obsessive-compulsive is the meaner phrase, and one you've truly earned. - Author: Claire Kendal
Methodical quotes by Claire Kendal
#37. There is no exact principle to be found here. The divine, as Boehme said, is unground - unfathomable, something outside the world as we experience it. But this is a difference of our minds, dearest one. I wish to arrive at revelation on wings, while you advance steadily on foot, magnifying glass in hand. I am a smattering wanderer, seeking God within the outer contours, searching for a new way of knowing. You stand upon the ground, and consider the evidence inch by inch. Your way is more rational and more methodical, but I cannot change my way." "I do have a dreadful love for - Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
Methodical quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#38. As to science, we may well define it for our purpose as "methodical thinking directed toward finding regulative connections between our sensual experiences". - Author: Albert Einstein
Methodical quotes by Albert Einstein

Methodical quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#40. It's almost comical that astronauts are stereotyped as daredevils and cowboys. As a rule, we're highly methodical and detail-oriented. Our passion isn't for thrills but for the grindstone, and pressing our noses to it. - Author: Chris Hadfield
Methodical quotes by Chris Hadfield
#41. Be methodical if you would succeed in business, or in anything. Have a work for every moment, and mind the moment's work. - Author: William Matthews
Methodical quotes by William Matthews
#42. A saving, though an immethodical knowledge of Christ, will bring us to heaven, John 17: 2, but a regular and methodical, as well as a saving knowledge of him, will bring heaven into us, Col. 2: 2, 3. - Author: John Flavel
Methodical quotes by John Flavel
#43. All questions of process require an answer that begins with a very important sentence, and the sentence is: 'Everybody is different.' Whatever way of working you name - methodical, haphazard, gets up early in the morning, sleeps all day, works at night, revises immensely, never revises at all - someone has made great work with that way. - Author: Robert Pinsky
Methodical quotes by Robert Pinsky
#44. Seeing Oliver again - touching Oliver again - that was really all that was on my mind.
I threw open my door and tried to launch myself out of the car, but my seat belt brought me back with a jerk, and then I felt like a jerk, because, really, who does that? I unhooked my seat belt so quickly it snapped up hard, and the belt buckle caught my chin, and my elbow got tangled in it as I was trying to get out of the door and get out all at the same time, and ... I sat back in my seat and took a deep breath, then looked at Oliver sheepishly through the open door. He was trying manfully not to roll on the ground in laughter. I could tell. I held up one finger, took another deep breath, and exited the car with slow, methodical movements before I hurt myself. - Author: Amy Lane
Methodical quotes by Amy Lane
#45. I am methodical to the point of being obsessive-compulsive. And I have always been good at multi-tasking. - Author: Deepika Padukone
Methodical quotes by Deepika Padukone
#46. Art is a creation of a higher order than a copy of nature which is governed by chance ... By the elimination of all muddy colors, by the exclusive use of optical mixture of pure colors, by a methodical divisionism and a strict observation of the scientific theory of colors, the neo-impressionists insures a maximum of luminosity, of color intensity, and of harmony- a result that has never yet been obtained. - Author: Paul Signac
Methodical quotes by Paul Signac
#47. Labor is the instituted means for the methodical development of all our powers under the direction and control of the will. - Author: J.G. Holland
Methodical quotes by J.G. Holland
#48. This word "Absurd" has had an unhappy history and I confess that now it rather annoys me. When I analyzed the feeling of the Absurd in The Myth of Sisyphus, I was looking for a method and not a doctrine. I was practicing methodical doubt. I was trying to make a "tabula rasa," on the basis of which it would then be possible to construct something. If we assume that nothing has any meaning, then we must conclude that the world is absurd. But does nothing have any meaning? I have never believed we could remain at this point. - Author: Albert Camus
Methodical quotes by Albert Camus
#49. The starting-point and chief principle of every science, and hence of theology also, is not only methodical doubt, but positive doubt. One can believe only what one has perceived to be true from reasonable grounds, and consequently one must have the courage to continue doubting until one has found reliable grounds to satisfy the reason. - Author: Georg Hermes
Methodical quotes by Georg Hermes
#50. I'm not changing the subject, just providing a methodical walkthrough of your fragile glass house and very impressive stone collection. - Author: Colette Moody
Methodical quotes by Colette Moody
#51. Love is strange when you think about it. It comes out of nowhere. There's no logic to it. It's not methodical. It's not scientific. It's pure emotion and passion. And emotion and passion can be beautiful, because they fuel love. I'm - Author: Kim Holden
Methodical quotes by Kim Holden
#52. All human errors are impatience, a premature breaking off of methodical procedure, an apparent fencing-in of what is apparently at issue. - Author: Franz Kafka
Methodical quotes by Franz Kafka
#53. No, I never thought about my image. It interests me that there are people who do, that they seem to be methodical about it. - Author: Alan Alda
Methodical quotes by Alan Alda

Methodical quotes by Caryl Rivers

Methodical quotes by Erin Morgenstern
#56. Experience and disappointments had made us methodical. - Author: Charles Baxter
Methodical quotes by Charles Baxter
#57. We were an ill-matched pair, my husband and I, from the very outset; he, with very high ideas of a husband's authority and a wife's submission, holding strongly to the 'master-in-my-own-house theory,' thinking much of the details of home arrangements, precise, methodical, easily angered and with difficulty appeased. - Author: Annie Besant
Methodical quotes by Annie Besant
#58. Very methodical guy, Marlowe. Nothing must interfere with his coffee technique. Not even a gun in the hand of a desperate character. - Author: Raymond Chandler
Methodical quotes by Raymond Chandler
#59. If your opponent is short (on time), play just as you played earlier in the game. If you are short keep calm, I repeat, don't get flustered. Keep up the same neat writing of the moves, the same methodical examination of variations, but at a quicker rate. - Author: Alexander Kotov
Methodical quotes by Alexander Kotov
#60. When I went to Bosnia, I was there to tell someone else's story and I was more methodical. - Author: Joe Sacco
Methodical quotes by Joe Sacco
#61. I am more touched, still, that you are trying to understand - through rational thought - that which cannot be understood at all. The divine, as Boehme said, is unground, unfathomable, something outside the world as we experience it. But this is a difference of our minds, dearest one. I wish to arrive on wings, while you advance steadily on foot, magnifying glass in hand. I am a smattering wanderer, seeking God within the outer contours, searching for a new way of knowing. You stand upon the ground, and consider the evidence inch by inch. Your way is more rational and more methodical, but I cannot change my way. - Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
Methodical quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
Methodical quotes by Guillermo Del Toro
#63. He was slow and methodical in the way he handled her, as if they had all the time in the world for him to explore her body. As if she was a sculpture he'd bought and paid for, something that belonged to him, was his to touch as he pleased. - Author: Stylo Fantome
Methodical quotes by Stylo Fantome
#64. So the being grows rings; identity becomes robust. What was fiery and furtive like a fling of grain cast into the air and blown hither and thither by wild gusts of life from every quarter is now methodical and orderly and flung with a purpose
so it seems. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Methodical quotes by Virginia Woolf
#65. God looks not at the oratory of your prayers, how elegant they may be; nor at the geometry of your prayers, how long they may be; nor at the arithmetic of your prayers, how many they may be; not at logic of your prayers, how methodical they may be; but the sincerity of them he looks at. - Author: Thomas Brooks
Methodical quotes by Thomas Brooks
#66. Be very strong ... be very methodical in your life if you want to be a champion. - Author: Alberto Juantorena
Methodical quotes by Alberto Juantorena
#67. Fallujah was a Guernica with no Picasso. A city of 300,000 was deprived of water, electricity, and food, emptied of most of its inhabitants who ended up parked in camps. Then came the methodical bombing and recapture of the city block by block. When soldiers occupied the hospital, The New York Times managed to justify this act on grounds that the hospital served as an enemy propaganda center by exaggerating the number of casualties. And by the way, just how many casualties were there? Nobody knows, there is no body count for Iraqis. When estimates are published, even by reputable scientific reviews, they are denounced as exaggerated. Finally, the inhabitants were allowed to return to their devastated city, by way of military checkpoints, and start to sift through the rubble, under the watchful eye of soldiers and biometric controls. - Author: Jean Bricmont
Methodical quotes by Jean Bricmont
#68. If we are merely a chance product of 'random happenstance' and nothing more, doesn't it strike you as a bit odd that we have the ability to contemplate the question of 'random happenstance' with such methodical complexity? - Author: Craig D. Lounsbrough
Methodical quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#69. The Hindus have a peculiar slovenliness in business matters, not being sufficiently methodical and strict in keeping accounts etc. - Author: Swami Vivekananda
Methodical quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#70. You grow sleepy,cara mia," Julian whispered, leaning down to kiss her forehea. "We should go to your brother's chamber. I will check him once more before we go to ground."
Desari refused to open her eyes. She made a soft purring sound, completely contented to lie in his arms. "Not yet, Julian," she protested softly. "I do not want to leave this place for a little while longer."
"I can feel how tired you are, my love. I can do no other than-"
"Do not say it!" Deasri thumped his chest. "Just lie there and hold me. That is what I want. Men are such difficult creatures,Julian. I am beginning to realize this."
He rubbed his chin on the top of her head, her hair catching in the shadow along his jaw. "Men are not difficult. They are logical and methodical."
She laughed softly. "You wish it wree so. I must tell you,although I am taking a huge cance that you might become impossible to live with, tha you are an extraordinary lover."
"Keep talking,lifemate. I am listening," he responded with a deep satisfaction. "Magnificent was only a starting place. Extraordinary lover is the perfect description. I see that now."
Her soft laughter washed over him, as gentle as a breeze. Touching him. Just like that. She could touch him with her breath. Julian wrapped his arms around her tightly and buried his face in her ebony hair. "Why is it you always smell so good?"
"Would you want me to smell like a cavewoman?"
"I do not know,cara. I do not know what a - Author: Christine Feehan
Methodical quotes by Christine Feehan
#71. When one is not expressing himself, he is not free. thus, he begins to struggle and the struggle breeds methodical routine. Soon, he is doing his methodical routine as response rather than responding to what is. - Author: Bruce Lee
Methodical quotes by Bruce Lee
#72. Medicine is an incoherent assemblage of incoherent ideas, and is, perhaps, of all the physiological Sciences, that which best shows the caprice of the human mind. What did I say! It is not a Science for a methodical mind. It is a shapeless assemblage of inaccurate ideas, of observations often puerile, of deceptive remedies, and of formulae as fantastically conceived as they are tediously arranged. - Author: Marie Francois Xavier Bichat
Methodical quotes by Marie Francois Xavier Bichat
#73. If you're an adrenaline junkie, I understand why you'd find that exciting. But I'm not, and I don't.

To me, the only good reason to take a risk is that there's a decent possibility of a reward that outweighs the hazard. Exploring the edge of the universe and pushing the boundaries of human knowledge and capability strike me as pretty significant rewards, so I accept the risks of being an astronaut, but with an abundance of caution: I want to understand them, manage them and reduce them as much as possible.

It's almost comical that astronauts are stereotyped as daredevils and cowboys. As a rule, we're highly methodical and detail-oriented. Our passion isn't for thrills but for the grindstone, and pressing our noses to it. We have to: we're responsible for equipment that has cost taxpayers many millions of dollars, and the best insurance policy we have on our lives is our own dedication to training. Studying, simulating, practicing until responses become automatic - astronauts don't do all this only to fulfill NASA's requirements. Training is something we do to reduce the odds that we'll die. - Author: Chris Hadfield
Methodical quotes by Chris Hadfield
#74. On the front flap, the reader was informed that the Testamento geometrico was really three books, 'each independent, but functionally correlated by the sweep of the whole,' and then it said 'this work representing the final distillation of Dieste's reflections and research on Space, the notion of which is involved in any methodical discussion of the fundamentals of Geometry. - Author: Roberto Bolano
Methodical quotes by Roberto Bolano
#75. Grothendieck did visit Paulo's (Paulo Ribenboim) room once, and stared thunderstruck at Paulo's enormous pile of math books. "What on earth is all that?" "That's what I'm going to read," said Paulo optimistically. But Grothendieck, not much of a believer in methodical study, merely responded "I bet you'll never read that in your whole life. - Author: Leila Schneps
Methodical quotes by Leila Schneps
#76. What differentiates the crimes of the Nazis from the others is their methodical organization, their administrative planning, and their relentless execution. - Author: Jacques Delarue
Methodical quotes by Jacques Delarue
#77. In the history of the intelligence, with the exception of Marx, Nietzsche's adventure has no equivalent; we shall never finish making reparation for the injustice done to him. Of course history records other philosophies that have been misconstrued and betrayed. But up to the time of Nietzsche and National
Socialism, it was quite without parallel that a process of thought - brilliantly illuminated by the nobility and by the sufferings of an exceptional mind - should have been demonstrated to the eyes of the world by a parade of lies and by the hideous accumulation of corpses in concentration camps. The doctrine of the superman led to the methodical creation of sub-men - a fact that doubtless should be denounced, but
which also demands interpretation. If the final result of the great movement of rebellion in the nineteenth
and twentieth centuries was to be this ruthless bondage, then surely rebellion should be rejected and
Nietzsche's desperate cry to his contemporaries taken up: "My conscience and yours are no longer the
same conscience. - Author: Albert Camus
Methodical quotes by Albert Camus
#78. Learning to fly an airplane taught me a way of thinking, an approach to problem-solving that was applicable and effective. Pilots are very methodical and meticulous, and artists tend not to be. - Author: Chris Carter
Methodical quotes by Chris Carter
#79. A patient, methodical sort of madman. The worst kind. - Author: Cassandra Clare
Methodical quotes by Cassandra Clare
#80. There is no task of greater importance than to give our children the very best preparation for the demands of an ominous future, a preparation which aims at the methodical cultivation of their spiritual and their moral gifts. As long as the exemplary work of the Waldorf School Movement continues to spread its influence as it has done over the past decades, we can all look forward with hope. I am sure that Rudolf Steiner's work for children must be considered a central contribution to the twentieth century and I feel it deserves the support of all freedom-loving thinking people. - Author: Bruno Walter
Methodical quotes by Bruno Walter
#81. After a great deal of discussion in Soviet literature about the correct definition of a combination, it was decided that from the point of view of a methodical approach it was best to settle on this definition - A combination is a forced variation with a sacrifice. - Author: Alexander Kotov
Methodical quotes by Alexander Kotov
#82. These days, I am the most boring, methodical runner. I always do the same three- to five-mile loop near my home every evening. I hardly ever miss a day. On the weekends, I might go longer or add in weights. - Author: Mika Brzezinski
Methodical quotes by Mika Brzezinski
#83. Get down! Get down!
The people in front had already done so, swept down by the wave of bullets. The survivors, instead of getting down, tried to go back to the small square, and the panic became a dragon's tail as one compact wave ran against another which was moving in the opposite direction, towards the other dragon's tail in the street across the way, where the machine guns were firing without cease. They were penned in, swirling about in a gigantic whirlwind that little by little was being reduced to its epicenter as the edges were systematically being cut off all around like an onion being peeled by the insatiable and methodical shears of the machine guns. - Author: Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Methodical quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#84. When I'm not on the road, I try to intake about 300 grams of protein a day, which is a lot. I got really into how your body absorbs it and how you feel and how crazy it is when you intake that much food and actually feel better, your brain works better, and you actually lose weight even though you're eating more. It's so methodical. - Author: Albert Hammond, Jr.
Methodical quotes by Albert Hammond, Jr.
#85. Causes of Variability - Effects of Habit and the use and disuse of Parts - Correlated Variation - Inheritance - Character of Domestic Varieties - Difficulty of distinguishing between Varieties and Species - Origin of Domestic Varieties from one or more Species - Domestic Pigeons, their Differences and Origin - Principles of Selection, anciently followed, their Effects - Methodical and Unconscious Selection - Unknown Origin of our Domestic Productions - Circumstances favourable to Man's power of Selection. - Author: Charles Darwin
Methodical quotes by Charles Darwin
#86. I'm not going to say paint is an easy spruce-up. It takes time, it needs touch-ups, and you have to be very methodical. But it is worth it, and it isn't particularly expensive. - Author: Nate Berkus
Methodical quotes by Nate Berkus
#87. 'Sunset Boulevard' - the story of Hollywood movies draped on a depressing sex affair - is an uncompromising study of American decadence displaying a sad, worn, methodical beauty few films have had since the late twenties. - Author: Manny Farber
Methodical quotes by Manny Farber
#88. SMaC recipe is a set of durable operating practices that create a replicable and consistent success formula. The word "SMaC" stands for Specific, Methodical, and Consistent. You can use the term "SMaC" as a descriptor in any number of ways: as an adjective ("Let's build a SMaC system"), as a noun ("SMaC lowers risk"), and as a verb ("Let's SMaC this project"). A solid SMaC recipe is the operating code for turning strategic concepts into reality, a set of practices more enduring than mere tactics. Tactics change from situation to situation, whereas SMaC practices can last for decades and apply across a wide range of circumstances. - Author: James C. Collins
Methodical quotes by James C. Collins
#89. I studied neuroscience at the cellular level, so I was looking at learning and memory in the visual cortex of rats. Neuroscience mainly exposed me to a way of thinking - about experimentation, about what you believe to be true and how you could prove it - and how to approach things in a methodical manner. - Author: Ze Frank
Methodical quotes by Ze Frank
#90. Men are not so difficult. They are logical and methodical.'
She laughed softly. 'You wish it were so. I must tell you, although I am taking a huge chance that you might become impossible to live with, that you are an extraordinary lover.'
'Keep talking, lifemate. I am listening,' he responded with a deep satisfaction. 'Magnificent was only a starting place. Extraordinary lover is the perfect description. I see that now. - Author: Christine Feehan
Methodical quotes by Christine Feehan
#91. Poetry is a bad medium for philosophy. Everything in the philosophical poem has to satisfy irreconcilable requirements: for instance, the last demand that we should make of philosophy (that it be interesting) is the first we make of a poem; the philosophical poet has an elevated and methodical, but forlorn and absurd air as he works away at his flying tank, his sewing-machine that also plays the piano. - Author: Randall Jarrell
Methodical quotes by Randall Jarrell
#92. Methodical writing distracts me from the present condition of men. But the certainty that everything has been already written nullifies or makes phantoms of us all. - Author: Jorge Luis Borges
Methodical quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#93. Absurdism, like methodical doubt, has wiped the slate clean. It leaves us in a blind alley. But, like methodical doubt, it can, by returning upon itself, open up a new field of investigation, and in the process of reasoning then pursues the same course. I proclaim that I believe in nothing and that everything is absurd, but I cannot doubt the validity of my proclamation and I must at least believe in my protest. - Author: Albert Camus
Methodical quotes by Albert Camus
#94. His days passed like this, slow and methodical. And then one morning he saw her. She had brown hair and blue eyes and red shoes and a big yellow clasp in her hair.
And then there was no more peace and quiet for Ove. - Author: Fredrik Backman
Methodical quotes by Fredrik Backman
#95. Am touched that you are trying to comprehend me. A friend could not be more loving. I am more touched, still, that you are trying to understand - through rational thought - that which cannot be understood at all. There is no exact principle to be found here. The divine, as Boehme said, is unground - unfathomable, something outside the world as we experience it. But this is a difference of our minds, dearest one. I wish to arrive at revelation on wings, while you advance steadily on foot, magnifying glass in hand. I am a smattering wanderer, seeking God within the outer contours, searching for a new way of knowing. You stand upon the ground, and consider the evidence inch by inch. Your way is more rational and more methodical, but I cannot change my way." "I do have a dreadful love for understanding," Alma admitted. "Indeed you do love it, though it is not dreadful, - Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
Methodical quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#96. The new type of capitalists - the industrial leader - develops new talents with his new function in economic life and, above all, a new discipline and evaluation of labour. He allows commercial interests to recede to a certain extent and concentrates on the internal organization of his factory. The principle of expediency, methodical planning and calculability, which had become very important in the economy in the leading countries since the fifteenth century, now becomes all-powerful. The employer disciplines himself just as ruthless as he does his workmen and employees, and becomes just as much the slave of his concern as his staff. The raising of labour to the level of the ethical force, its glorification and adoration, is fundamentally nothing but the ideological transfiguration of the striving for success and profit and an attempt to stimulate even those elements who share least in the fruits of their labour into enthusiastic co-operation. The idea of freedom is part of the same ideology. - Author: Arnold Hauser
Methodical quotes by Arnold Hauser
" ... Wickard will have readers on edge ..."
" ... a methodical, white-knuckled grip of the throat, the tension getting tighter."
"A leisurely paced but ultimately rewarding, riveting thriller." - Author: Douglas Wickard
Methodical quotes by Douglas Wickard
#98. I remember sitting at the end of my mum's bed being fascinated by her ritual of getting dressed. It was a very methodical and considered process. I suppose you could say she was my first real muse. - Author: Matthew Williamson
Methodical quotes by Matthew Williamson
#99. I still feel there are much smarter self-promoters out there than me. I am very methodical about my messaging, and I know how to gain attention very quickly. - Author: Tim Ferriss
Methodical quotes by Tim Ferriss
#100. The whole Epistle is so methodical, that even its very beginning is framed according to the rules of art. - Author: John Calvin
Methodical quotes by John Calvin
#101. Perhaps the most important ingredient in my work ... is my brain - particularly the right brain ... the free spontaneous side, and the left brain, which is careful and methodical. - Author: Brian Johnson
Methodical quotes by Brian Johnson
#102. The truth was loose: I was the son of a son of a bitch, an ancestral prodigy born to clobber my way through loathsome dungheaps of idiot labor. My genes were cocked and loaded. I was a meteor, a gunslinger, a switchblade boomerang hurled from the pecker dribblets of my forefathers' untainted jalopy seed. I was Al Kaline peggin' home a beebee from the right field corner. I was Picasso applyin' the final masterstroke to his frenzied Guernica. I was Wilson Pickett stompin' up the stairway of the Midnight Hour. I was one blazin' tomahawk of m-fuggin' eel snot. Graceful and indomitable. Methodical and brain-dead. The quintessential shoprat. The Rivethead. - Author: Ben Hamper
Methodical quotes by Ben Hamper
#103. Science depends on organized skepticism, that is, on continual, methodical doubting. Few of us doubt our own conclusions, so science embraces its skeptical approach by rewarding those who doubt someone else's. - Author: Neil DeGrasse Tyson
