Quote of the Day
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Arthur C. Clarke
Perhaps the saddest irony of depression is that suicide happens when the patient gets a little better and can again function sufficiently.
By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.
In Republics, the great danger is, that the majority may not sufficiently respect the rights of the minority.
The wise man does not expose himself needlessly to danger, since there are few things for which he cares sufficiently; but he is willing, in great crises, to give even his life - knowing that under certain conditions it is not worthwhile to live.
The best teachers, one hopes, don't shout at their students - because they are skilled at wooing as well as demanding the best efforts of others. For the ancient Greeks and Romans, this wooing was a sufficiently fine art in itself to be the central focus of education.
The capacity of the female mind for studies of the highest order cannot be doubted, having been sufficiently illustrated by its works of genius, of erudition, and of science.
That is never too often repeated, which is never sufficiently learned.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
I prefer the company of peasants because they have not been educated sufficiently to reason incorrectly.
Michel de Montaigne
What I would like to see is sufficiently good education and health services being delivered to Aboriginal people so that they are prepared and ready to leave and join the economic mainstream if that's their choice.
In the present state of our knowledge, it would be useless to attempt to speculate on the remote cause of the electrical energy... its relation to chemical affinity is, however, sufficiently evident. May it not be identical with it, and an essential property of matter?
Seasonal flu is now a pandemic that lasts for years and years because you've got so many people that it's jumping back between northern and southern hemispheres and moving itself around the world. By the time it gets back to where it started, it's changed sufficiently so that people are no longer immune.
We were told our campaign wasn't sufficiently slick. We regard that as a compliment.
Anoint, v.: To grease a king or other great functionary already sufficiently slippery.
When brains get sufficiently big, presumably, as human brains have, consciousness seems to emerge.
God created man and, finding him not sufficiently alone, gave him a companion to make him feel his solitude more keenly.
One comes to believe whatever one repeats to oneself sufficiently often, whether the statement be true of false. It comes to be dominating thought in one's mind.
The split between religion and science is relatively new. Isaac Newton, who first worked out the laws by which gravity held the planets and even the stars in their traces, was sufficiently impressed by the scale and regularity of the universe to ascribe it all to God.
If I were sufficiently romantic I suppose I'd have killed myself long ago just to make people talk about me. I haven't even got the conviction to make a successful drunkard.
John Dos Passos
After lengthy consideration, my views have evolved sufficiently to support marriage equality legislation. This position doesn't require any religious denomination to alter any of its tenets; it simply forbids government from discrimination regarding who can marry whom.
No two languages are ever sufficiently similar to be considered as representing the same social reality.
Because most people are not sufficiently employed in themselves, they run about loose, hungering for employment, and satisfy themselves in various supererogatory occupations. The easiest of these occupations, which have all to do with making things already made, is the making of people: it is called the art of friendship.
A lot of fans that recognize me go, 'I kind of hate you,' and I'm all, 'Cool, well, you've just made this sufficiently awkward.'
All truly historical peoples have an idea they must realize, and when they have sufficiently exploited it at home, they export it, in a certain way, by war; they make it tour the world.
A life is not sufficiently elevated for poetry, unless, of course, the life has been made into an art.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
