Quote of the Day
Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term Art, I should call it 'the reproduction of what the Senses perceive in Nature through the veil of the soul.' The mere imitation, however accurate, of what is in Nature, entitles no man to the sacred name of 'Artist.'
Edgar Allan Poe
Artists - musicians, painters, writers, poets - always seem to have had the most accurate perception of what is really going on around them, not the official version or the popular perception of contemporary life.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.
George Bernard Shaw
Nothing is more important to national security and the making and conduct of good policy than timely, accurate, and relevant intelligence. Nothing is more critical to accurate and relevant intelligence than independent analysis.
Dennis C. Blair
Insanity is often the logic of an accurate mind overtasked.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
A woman's guess is much more accurate than a man's certainty.
Whether at work, at home or in public, we have been trained to believe that who we are at the core of our being is often unacceptable. As a result, we work diligently to live up to - and sometimes down to - what others have made us out to be, whether or not it is an accurate reflection of who we are.
Science is simply common sense at its best, that is, rigidly accurate in observation, and merciless to fallacy in logic.
Benito Mussolini created the word 'fascism.' He defined it as 'the merging of the state and the corporation.' He also said a more accurate word would be 'corporatism.' This was the definition in Webster's up until 1987 when a corporation bought Webster's and changed it to exclude any mention of corporations.
Trust in yourself. Your perceptions are often far more accurate than you are willing to believe.
All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth.
The solution of the difficulty is that the two mental pictures which experiment lead us to form - the one of the particles, the other of the waves - are both incomplete and have only the validity of analogies which are accurate only in limiting cases.
If you're doing a biography, you try to stay as accurate as possible to reality. But you really don't know what was going on in the person's mind. You just know what was going on in the minds of people around him.
I was brought up to believe that the only thing worth doing was to add to the sum of accurate information in the world.
Science cannot progress without reliable and accurate measurement of what it is you are trying to study. The key is measurement, simple as that.
Robert D. Hare
There's a lot of fuss on the Left about election irregularities, like, you know, the voting machines were tampered with, they didn't count the votes right, and so on. That's all accurate and of some importance, but of far more importance is the fact that elections just don't take place, not in any meaningful sense of the term 'election.'
Silence is so accurate.
Numbers are the product of counting. Quantities are the product of measurement. This means that numbers can conceivably be accurate because there is a discontinuity between each integer and the next.
No accurate thinker will judge another person by that which the other person's enemies say about him.
I am a sinner. This is the most accurate definition. It is not a figure of speech, a literary genre. I am a sinner.
There is no substitute for accurate knowledge. Know yourself, know your business, know your men.
NASA has spin-offs, and it's a huge and very impressive list, including accurate and affordable LASIK eye surgery.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
I like to call the ethos I grew up with 'Oklahoma values.' But you'd be just as accurate if you said 'American values.' Except for our lack of a seacoast, Oklahoma has a little bit of just about everything that's American.
J. C. Watts
Simply put, you believer that things or people make you unhappy, but this is not accurate. You make yourself unhappy.
We will act consistently with our view of who we truly are, whether that view is accurate or not.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
