Probably all the attention to poetry results in some value, though the attention is more often directed to lesser than to greater values.
A. R. Ammons
My life isn't focused on results. My life is really focused on the process of doing all the things I'm doing, from work to relationships to friendships to charitable work.
Meritocracy is a good thing. Whenever possibly, people should be judged based on their work and results, not superficial qualities.
Recent results from astronomers who study the occasional gravitational lensing of unknown worlds by intervening stars suggest that orphan planets could be at least as numerous as the stars. In other words, there could be hundreds of billions of orphan worlds shuffling through our galaxy.
Happiness is a critical factor for work, and work is a critical factor for happiness. In one of those life-isn't-fair results, it turns out that the happy outperform the less happy. Happy people work more hours each week - and they work more in their free time, too.
Work creates an enormous sense of self and I saw that in my mother. She was an enormous, towering figure to me in the best possible way. I picked up a lot of things from her in the way that I work... I also picked up a lot of the failings of when your father doesn't have those things and that results in a house that turns into a minefield.
Half of Google's revenue comes from selling text-based ads that are placed near search results and are related to the topic of the search. Another half of its revenues come from licensing its search technology to companies like Yahoo.
Everyone is bound to bear patiently the results of his own example.
Winning to often is as disastrous as losing too often. Both get the same results, the falling off of the public's enthusiasm.
Bosses should sanction the nap rather than expect workers to power on all day without repose. They might even find that workers' happiness - or what management types refer to as 'employee satisfaction results' - might improve.
My blogging life is basically goalless. I like the zen nature of that, and paradoxically, it improves results.
The world has conducted a massive macro-economic experiment since the cataclysm of 2008. In Europe, the fans of austerity have had their chance, and the results have been a disaster.
An investigator starts research in a new field with faith, a foggy idea, and a few wild experiments. Eventually the interplay of negative and positive results guides the work. By the time the research is completed, he or she knows how it should have been started and conducted.
I'm not going to work so that Pena Nieto is the best known or most recognized in the world. I'm going to work so that Mexico has results.
Enrique Pena Nieto
Markets work best when there's lots of information available and a historical track record to go on; they excel at predicting things like horse races, election outcomes, and box-office results. But they're bad at predicting things like who will be the next Supreme Court nominee, as that depends on the whim of the president.
Most people believe that results matter. The idea that results matter is one that you have to keep letting go of. And most of the time, I believe it.
It is also a good rule not to put overmuch confidence in the observational results that are put forward until they are confirmed by theory.
Research! A mere excuse for idleness; it has never achieved, and will never achieve any results of the slightest value.
Wine lovers have known for centuries that decanting wine before serving it often improves its flavor. Whatever the dominant process, the traditional decanter is a rather pathetic tool to accomplish it. A few years ago, I found I could get much better results by using an ordinary kitchen blender.

People marry for a variety of reasons and with varying results. But to marry for love is to invite inevitable tragedy.
James Branch Cabell
I know we can fix our problems. When there are people in the room who care more about doing the job they were elected to do than they worry about winning reelection, it is possible to work together, achieve principal compromise, and get results for the people who give us these jobs in the first place.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
