deals

A Quote by Wendell Berry on deals, decisions, justice, memory, nature, and politicians

Whether we and our politicians know it or not, Nature is party to all our deals and decisions, and she has more votes, a longer memory, and a sterner sense of justice than we do.

Wendell Berry (1934 -)

A Quote by Studs Terkel on computers, day, deals, fortune, people, and silence

One day I visited a guy who had made a fortune as a broker. He was sitting in his office with his computer. I hire people from here and make deals from this room, he told me. Then he took me to the trading room. Nobody was talking to anybody else, the place was silent as a tomb, they were all sitting there watching their terminals - a great word, terminal. I tell you, it scares the crap out of me.

Studs Terkel (1912 -)

A Quote by Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington on deals, impossibility, and physics

It is impossible to trap modern physics into predicting anything with perfect determinism because it deals with probabilities from the outset.

A Quote by Judge Ronald Buckwalter on agreement, body, citizenship, constitution, crime, deals, democracy, government, heart, play, relationships, speech, and survival

This statute, all parties agree, deals with protected speech, the preservation of which has been extolled by court after court in case after case as the keystone, the bulwark, the very heart of our democracy. What is more, the [Communications Decency Act] attempts to regulate protected speech through criminal sanctions, thus implicating not only the First but also the Fifth Amendment of our Constitution. The concept of due process is every bit as important to our form of government as is free speech. If free speech is at the heart of our democracy, then surely due process is the very lifeblood of our body politic; for without it, democracy could not survive. Distilled to its essence, due process is, of course, nothing more and nothing less than fair play. If our citizens cannot rely on fair play in their relationship with their government, the stature of our government as a shining example of democracy would be greatly diminished.

A Quote by Paracelsus on art, deals, guidance, life, medicine, science, and understanding

Medicine is not only a science; it is also an art. It does not consist of compounding pills and plasters; it deals with the very processes of life, which must be understood before they may be guided.

A Quote by John Quincy Adams on deals, freedom, and peace

This hand, to tyrants ever sworn the foe, For Freedom only deals the deadly blow; Then sheathes in calm repose the vengeful blade, For gentle peace in Freedom's hallowed shade.

A Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow on children, day, deals, motherhood, nature, promises, rest, sleep, understanding, and wishes

As a fond mother, when the day is o'er, Leads by the hand her little child to bed, Half willing, half reluctant to be led, And leave his broken playthings on the floor. Still gazing at them through the open door, Nor wholly reassured and comforted By promises of others in their stead Which, the more splendid, may not please him more; So Nature deals with us, and takes away Our playthings one by one, and by the hand Leads us to rest so gently, that we go Scarce knowing if we wish to go or stay, Being too full of sleep to understand How far the unknown transcends the what we know.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882)

A Quote by Anna Eleanor Roosevelt on charity, circumstances, deals, good, learning, life, love, maturity, needs, people, and world

A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally,who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and in all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all-knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity.

If power corrupts, weakness in the seat of power, with its constant necessity of deals and bribes and compromising arrangements,corrupts even more.

A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on colors, deals, good, and science

BOTANY, n. The science of vegetables - those that are not good to eat, as well as those that are. It deals largely with their flowers, which are commonly badly designed, inartistic in color, and ill- smelling.
