#1. However statistically improbable the entity you seek to explain by invoking a designer, the designer himself has got to be at least as improbable. God is the Ultimate Boeing 747. - Author: Richard Dawkins
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Richard Dawkins
#2. Will someone please explain to me the logic that says we can trust someone with a Boeing 747 in bad weather but not with a Glock 9 millimeter? - Author: Zell Miller
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Zell Miller
#3. The way Moore's Law occurs in computing is really unprecedented in other walks of life. If the Boeing 747 obeyed Moore's Law, it would travel a million miles an hour, it would be shrunken down in size, and a trip to New York would cost about five dollars. Those enormous changes just aren't part of our everyday experience. - Author: Nathan Myhrvold
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Nathan Myhrvold
#4. British astronomer Fred Hoyle said something to this effect: That believing in Darwin's theoretical mechanisms of evolution was like believing that a hurricane could blow through a junkyard and build a Boeing 747 - Author: Kurt Vonnegut
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#5. The Boeing 747 is the commuter train of the global village. - Author: Hendrik Tennekes
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Hendrik Tennekes
#6. The ultimate sexist put-down: the prick which lies down on the job. The ultimate weapon in the war between the sexes: the limp prick. The banner of the enemy's encampment: the prick at half-mast. The symbol of the apocalypse: the atomic warhead prick which self-destructs. That was the basic inequity which could never be righted: not that the male had a wonderful added attraction called a penis, but that the female had a wonderful all-weather cunt. Neither storm nor sleet nor dark of night could faze it. It was always there, always ready. Quite terrifying, when you think about it. No wonder men hated women. No wonder they invented the myth of female inadequacy. - Author: Erica Jong
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Erica Jong
#7. Prostitutes are the inevitable product of a society that places ultimate importance on money, possessions, and competition. - Author: Jane Fonda
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Jane Fonda
#8. To go anywhere in philosophy, other than back and forth, round and round, one must have a keen sense of correlative vision. This is a technical term for a thorough understanding of the Game of Black-and-White, whereby one sees that all explicit opposites are implicit allies - correlative in the sense that they "gowith" each other and cannot exist apart. This, rather than any miasmic absorption of differences into a continuum of ultimate goo, is the metaphysical unity underlying the world. - Author: Alan W. Watts
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Alan W. Watts
#9. Language guardians have often blamed linguists as defenders of bad language: moral and cultural relativism is often tossed in at no extra charge. We as a profession are supposedly promoting the idea that anything goes in grammar... But no, we have never said anything goes in grammar. (...) When it comes to the proper use of language, universal grammar is the ultimate authority. It is not about what rules are deemed reasonable or popular; it is about what rules are true. And one sign for a true rule is that it appears in young children, long before they are polluted by dubious grammatical advice. - Author: Charles Yang
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Charles Yang
#10. A voice said: One. One. One, two. One, two. Then the footsteps went back into the distance. After a while, another voice said: One, two, three, four- And the universe came into being. It was wrong to call it a big bang. That would just be noise, and all that noise could create is more noise and a cosmos full of random particles. Matter exploded into being, apparently as chaos, but in fact as a chord. The ultimate power chord. Everything, all together, streaming out in one huge rush that contained within itself, like reverse fossils, everything that it was going to be. And, zigzagging through the expanding cloud, alive, that first wild live music. This had shape. It had spin. It had rhythm. It had a beat, and you could dance to it. Everything did. - Author: Terry Pratchett
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Terry Pratchett
#11. A man with a grain of faith in God never loses hope, because he ever believes in the ultimate triumph of Truth. - Author: Mahatma Gandhi
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#12. A dozen times a day we come to a fork in the road and must decide which way we will go. It is important to get our ultimate objectives clearly in mind so that we do not become distracted at each fork in the road by the irrelevant questions: Which is the easier or more pleasant way? Or, Which way are others going? - Author: Spencer W. Kimball
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Spencer W. Kimball
#13. The ultimate objective of subsidies should be to empower the poor, to break the cycle of poverty, and become foot-soldiers in our war on poverty. - Author: Narendra Modi
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Narendra Modi
#14. Where you are now is as a result of either your choice or someone's choice. If you neglect the ideas of choosing the ultimate things for yourself, someone will hire you by choosing the average thing for you. - Author: Israelmore Ayivor
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#15. People ... become so preoccupied with the means by which an end is achieved, as eventually to mistake it for the end. Just as money, which is a means of satisfying wants, comes to be regarded by a miser as the sole thing to be worked for, leaving the wants unsatisfied; so the conduct men have found preferable because most conducive to happiness, has come to be thought of as intrinsically preferable: not only to be made a proximate end (which it should be), but to be made an ultimate end, to the exclusion of the true ultimate end. - Author: Herbert Spencer
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Herbert Spencer
#16. Filmmaking is the ultimate team sport. - Author: Michael Keaton
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Michael Keaton
#17. You don't climb the second mountain the way you climb the first mountain. You conquer your first mountain. You identify the summit, and you claw your way toward it. You are conquered by your second mountain. You surrender to some summons, and you do everything necessary to answer the call and address the problem or injustice that is in front of you. On the first mountain you tend to be ambitious, strategic, and independent. On the second mountain you tend to be relational, intimate, and relentless.
It's gotten so I can recognize first- and second-mountain people. The first-mountain people are often cheerful, interesting, and fun to be around. They often have impressive jobs and can take you to an amazing variety of great restaurants. The second-mountain people aren't averse to the pleasures of the world. They delight in a good glass of wine or a nice beach. (There's nothing worse than people who are so spiritualized they don't love the world.) But they have surpassed these pleasures in pursuit of moral joy, a feeling that they have aligned their life toward some ultimate good. If they have to choose, they choose joy. - Author: David Brooks
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by David Brooks
#18. The difference between the Christian and the Dualist is that the Christian thinks one stage further and sees that if Michael is really in the right and Satan really in the wrong this must mean that they stand in two different relations to somebody or something far further back, to the ultimate ground of reality itself. - Author: C.S. Lewis
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by C.S. Lewis
#19. The sex act is emotionally the richest and the most imaginatively charged event in our lives, comparable only to the embrace of our children as a source of affection and mystery. But no kinaesthetic language has yet been devised to describe it in detail, and without one we are in the position of an unqualified observer viewing an operation for brain surgery. Ballet, gymnastics, American football and judo are furnished with elaborate kinaesthetic languages, but it's still easier to describe the tango or the cockpit take-off procedures for a 747 than to recount in detail an act of love. - Author: J.G. Ballard
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by J.G. Ballard
#20. Mr. Schmidt had screamed at me in New York: LOSER! You English Loser ... I suppose he thought it was the most grievous insult he could hurl. But such a curse doesn't really have any effect on an English person - or a European - it seems to me. We know we're all going to lose in the end so it is deprived of any force as a slur. But not in the USA. Perhaps this is the great difference between the two worlds, this concept of Loserdom. In the New World it is the ultimate mark of shame - in the Old it prompts only a wry sympathy. - Author: William Boyd
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by William Boyd
#21. Every era casts illness in its own image. Society, like the ultimate psychosomatic patient, matches its medical afflictions to its psychological crises; when a disease touches such a visceral chord, it is often because that chord is already resonating. - Author: Siddhartha Mukherjee
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Siddhartha Mukherjee
#22. I know I have an ocean of sadness inside me and I have been damming it my entire life. I have always imagined that something was supposed to rescue me from the ocean. But maybe the ocean is its own ultimate rescue – a reprieve from the linear mind and into the world of feeling. Shouldn't someone have told me this at birth? Shouldn't someone have said, "Enjoy your ocean of sadness, there is nothing to fear in it," so I didn't have to build all those dams? I think some of us are less equipped to deal with our oceans, or maybe we are just more terrified, because we see and feel a little extra. So we build our shitty dams. But inevitably, the dam always breaks again. It breaks again and the ocean speaks to me. It says 'I'm alive and it's real'. It says, 'I'm going to die, and it's real. - Author: Melissa Broder
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Melissa Broder
#23. Poetry allies itself with beauty - a supreme union - but never uses it as its ultimate goal or sole nourishment. - Author: Saint-John Perse
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Saint-John Perse
#24. The ultimate treasures on earth and in heaven are our children and our posterity. - Author: Dallin H. Oaks
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Dallin H. Oaks
#25. The Christian is joyful, not because he is blind to injustice and suffering, but because he is convinced that these, in the light of the divine sovereignty, are never ultimate. The Christian can be sad, and often is perplexed, but he is never really worried, because he knows that the purpose of God is to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ. - Author: D. Elton Trueblood
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by D. Elton Trueblood
#26. Testimony is the beginning of and a prerequisite to continuing conversion. Testimony is a point of departure; it is not an ultimate destination. Strong testimony is the foundation upon which conversion is established. Testimony alone is not and will not be enough to protect us in the latter-day storm of darkness and evil in which we are living. - Author: David A. Bednar
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by David A. Bednar
#27. We have reduced the kingdom of God to private piety, the victory of the cross to comfort for the conscience, and Easter itself to a happy, escapist ending after a sad, dark tale. Piety, conscience, and ultimate happiness are important, but not nearly as important as Jesus himself. - Author: N. T. Wright
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by N. T. Wright
#28. I had years of therapy to recover from this. A lot of it had to with being a people pleaser, being the ultimate good girl. I wanted everyone to like me. I didn't really have a voice. I was afraid of growing up. - Author: Tracey Gold
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Tracey Gold
#29. Finesse and refinement are admirable qualities, but they are not the artist's ultimate goals; and, indeed, they can stand in the way of those goals. - Author: Sam Inglis
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Sam Inglis
#30. The ultimate hate speech is to endorse homosexuality. - Author: Gordon Klingenschmitt
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Gordon Klingenschmitt
#31. The ultimate aim of reading or writing poetry is to enrich one's life experience. - Author: Marty Rubin
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Marty Rubin
#32. Falling in love makes smoking pot all day look like the ultimate in restraint. - Author: Dave Sim
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Dave Sim
#33. Life is the ultimate right. - Author: Chris Smith
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Chris Smith
#34. What are you? Do you know? What you are is you're always trying to smooth everything over. What you are is always trying to be moderate. What you are is never telling the truth if you think it's going to hurt somebody's feelings. What you are is you're always compromising. What you are is always complacent. What you are is always trying to find the bright side of things. The one with the manners. The one who abides everything patiently. The one with ultimate decorum. The boy who never breaks the code. - Author: Philip Roth
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Philip Roth
#35. One of the purest souls ever to live on this fallen planet was Nicholas Herman, known as Brother Lawrence. He wrote very little, but what he wrote has seemed to several generations of Christians to be so rare and so beautiful as to deserve a place near the top among the world's great books of devotion. The writings of Brother Lawrence are the ultimate in simplicity; ideas woven like costly threads to make a pattern of great beauty. - Author: A.W. Tozer
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by A.W. Tozer
#36. This last chapter .. may have given the impression that somehow man is the ultimate triumph of evolution, that all these millions of years of development have had no purpose other than to put him on earth. There is no scientific evidence whatever to support such a view and no reason to suppose that our stay here will be any more permanent than that of the dinosaur. - Author: David Attenborough
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by David Attenborough
#37. The web is the ultimate customer-empowering environment. He or she who clicks the mouse gets to decide everything. It is so easy to go elsewhere; all the competitors in the world are but a mouseclick away. - Author: Jakob Nielsen
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Jakob Nielsen
#38. The ultimate way of Being lies beyond all contradictory pairs of opposites
with which our two dimensional thinking mind operates.
As soon as we are successful in silencing the restless activity of the thinking mind
and give a chance to intuition, the pure all embracing spirit in us will manifest effortlessly. - Author: Anagarika Govinda
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Anagarika Govinda
#39. The ultimate goal of all of life is to know and love God, make him known, and thereby glorify him. - Author: Erik Thoennes
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Erik Thoennes
#40. The way we view the world, the ultimate barometer of quality is: if it gets shared, it's quality. - Author: Emerson Spartz
Ultimate Boeing 747 Gambit quotes by Emerson Spartz
#41. Reality is subjective, and there's an unenlightened tendency in this culture to regard something as 'important' only if 'tis sober and severe. Sure and still you're right about your Cheerful Dum, only they're not so much happy as lobotomized. But your Gloomy Smart are just as ridiculous. When you're unhappy, you get to pay a lot of attention to yourself. And you get to take yourself oh so very seriously. Your truly happy people, which is to say, your people who truly like themselves, they don't think about themselves very much. Your unhappy person resents it when you try to cheer him up, because that means he has to stop dwellin' on himself and start payin' attention to the universe. Unhappiness is the ultimate form o' self-indulgence. - Author: Tom Robbins
