Shirley Ballas
It’s almost as if this is the fundamental procedure in modern society: duplication and recycling.
Susan Sontag
Writing long books is a laborious and impoverishing act of foolishness: expanding in five hundred pages an idea that could be perfectly explained in a few minutes. A better procedure is to pretend that those books already exist and to offer a summary, a commentary.

Andre Malraux
…this charity…They quibble too much over procedures…while we seek a cure. They complain too loudly against another who, seemingly, has perfected a work that the public expects its charity dollars to do. Maybe we should investigate the American Cancer Society’s operations.
Roland V. Libonati
The common thread linking the major Islamic terrorist attacks that have recently occurred on our soil – 9/11, the Ft. Hood shooting, the Boston Bombing, the San Bernardino attack, the Orlando attack – is that they have involved immigrants or the children of immigrants. Clearly, new screening procedures are needed.
Donald Trump

Bayard Rustin
No one can deny that some Islamist groups have credential and popularity. But that does not mean they are a majority.

Two respondents described dreams which they had related to the procedure. Both described dreams of vomiting fetuses along with a sense of horror … In general it appears that the more direct the physical and visual involvement the more stress experienced.
Warren Hern
‘Boldface’ is a pilot term, a magic word to describe the procedures that could, in a crisis, save your life.

Franco Frattini
Historians of the future will find it incredible that we mutilated babies by cutting off the end of their penises in the name of medicine. There are now serious concerns this routine procedure may actually deprive adult men of a vital part of their sexual sensitivity.
Dean Edell
Want to be a well-paid bioethicist, with one, two, or even three university appointments? Just get yourself a two-piece navy polyester suit and follow these three simple rules: (1) Never name names. (2) Screw principles; just follow procedures. (3) Bury the money.
Alice Dreger
I don’t think people were overmedicated, but I think health care cannot stop in the clinic. If all we do is throw pills and procedures at people after they’re already sick and we don’t deal with what’s making them sick to start with, that’s a real problem.
Jill Stein
A man demonstrates his rationality, not by a commitment to fixed ideas, stereotyped procedures, or immutable concepts, but by the manner in which, and the occasions on which, he changes those ideas, procedures, and concepts.

Alice Sebold
At a cardiac arrest, the first procedure is to take your own pulse
Samuel Shem
I embarked on a risky course of plastic surgery and silicone injections, major dental realignments and gruesome medical procedures. I pray that young dancers, those who imitate me at their peril, will avoid this blind alley. It is more than a dead end; it is a dead beginning.

I spent my time trying to understand grand jury procedure – a topic about which I never before had the slightest interest.
Donella Meadows
There is a very well-defined procedure that allows the Vatican to raise issues with a particular theologian about something that does not appear in conformity with the Catholic faith. It is not always easy to make this determination.
Godfried Danneels
In addition the bill would expand an existing law “conscience clause” that protects physician training programs that refuse to provide training for abortion procedures.
Ken Calvert
Many countries have food safety systems from farm to table. Everybody involved in the food supply is required to follow standard food safety procedures. You would think that everyone involved with food would not want people to get sick from it.
Marion Nestle
Self criticism must be my guide to action, and the first rule for its employment is that in itself it is not a virtue, only a procedure.
Kingsley Amis

Narendra Modi
The Roswell incident, for instance, had over three hundred witnesses – some describing the bodies, some the craft, some the military procedures. Were they all perpetuating their own lives in a myth?
Dwight Schultz

Ann Coulter
That which distinguishes the Soviet system both from other national systems and from the progressive schools of other countries is the conscious control of every educational procedure by reference to a single and comprehensive social purpose.
John Dewey
The hardest procedures are the complex nasal reconstructions. With these you have to be so careful, because the skin of the nose can be very destroyed and turns black and can fall off. It’s extremely difficult and scary.

Ralph W. Moss
Photographs are but one link in a potentially endless chain of reduplication; themselves duplicates (of both their objects and, in a sense, their negatives), they are also subject to further duplication, either through the procedures of printing or as objects of still other photographs.
Craig Owens
I decided that life rationally considered seemed pointless and futile, but it is still interesting in a variety of ways, including the study of science. So why not carry on, following the path of scientific hedonism? Besides, I did not have the courage for the more rational procedure of suicide.
Robert S. Mulliken
We know we need civilization and laws and procedures, but isn’t it frustrating? Wouldn’t it be great if we could just do what we needed to do?
Lee Child
We live increasingly in a system in which little direct attention is paid to the object, the function, the program, the task, the need; but immense attention to the role, the procedure, prestige, and profit.
Paul Goodman
The number one problem in the classroom is not discipline; it is the lack of procedures and routines.
Harry Wong
Science no longer is in the position of observer of nature, but rather recognizes itself as part of the interplay between man and nature. The scientific method … changes and transforms its object: the procedure can no longer keep its distance from the object.

Bob Baffert

Terence McKenna
Because we had to convince the scientific members of Transylvania that with the procedure I was using on the creature, Dr. Frankenstein could be taught to be a civilized human being, what I called a man about town. Instead of a monster who’s going to kill their children, it was someone who could sing and dance.
Gene Wilder
Labor force needs and economic conditions are disregarded in our policies. Many aspects of our current policies and procedures are patently wrong. For example, legal immigration has almost no link to U.S. employment needs or economic conditions.
Ronald Reagan
I liked models since I was 3 years old. As I grew older, I started developing a penchant towards makeup, pedicures, etc. I used to carry out the procedures at my home itself.
Pratyusha Banerjee
Over the course of many encounters and many years, I have successfully developed a standard operating procedure for dealing with big, nasty monsters. Run away.
Jim Butcher
Because present procedures by design favor the affluent, the poor are being increasingly marginalized. And because the poor are so marginalized, they can exert little influence on institutional design decisions. We need to break out of this vicious spiral and create momentum in the opposite direction.
Thomas Pogge
Boxing is a full-body workout, and while you’re in it and learning the procedures and steps, you’re working out at the same time. Sometimes it don’t feel like you’re actually working out, which I like.
Yo Gotti
Warren Cox, God knew, was no prize; a commercial person, a sales person, the kind of man who said things like “x numbers of dollars”. At lunch today, laboriously trying to explain some business procedure, he had said “x number of dollars” three times.
Richard Yates
The United States need to put internet processes, policies, and procedures in place with real laws that forbid going beyond the borders of what’s reasonable to ensure that the only time that we and other countries around the world exercise these authorities are when it is absolutely necessary.
Edward Snowden
One of the keys to success is an unflinching belief that there are no rules. Anyone who’s ever succeeded has gone on that premise; not buying established procedures, business or otherwise. The naysayers are inevitably left behind amid shouts of ‘it cannot be done’ and “should not be done’.”
Anton Szandor LaVey
We have such rigid rules, sometimes, that they don’t have to be rules. They can be policies and procedures that can be adapted for the moment.
Oscar Munoz
Organizations worried about the potential for e-voting problems have long-advocated for audit procedures by which votes cast by e-voting machines could be verified through audit trails.
Bob Barr
The confirmed man of trout should resolve to get along with wood ticks. Any other procedure would fail because the wood tick is determined to get along with trout fishermen.
Gordon MacQuarrie
What makes a politician accountable is not that there are millions of people who vote, but that there are procedures of government that force him to account for himself.
Roger Scruton
In order to make a perfect and beautiful machine, it is not requisite to know how to make it. All the works of human genius can be understood in the end to be products of a cascade of generate-and-test procedures that are, at bottom, algorithmic and mindless.
Daniel Dennett
Every procedure for getting a cat to take a pill works fine – once. Like the Borg, they learn.
Terry Pratchett
People in the eastern regions [of Ukaraine] are talking about federalisation, and Kiev has at long last started talking about de-centralisation. Order in the country can only be restored through dialogue and democratic procedures, rather than with the use of armed force, tanks and aircraft.
Vladimir Putin
There is no shame in wanting to age naturally or wanting to ‘age gracefully’ with a little help from products or procedures.
Mel Robbins
A network neutrality rule could result in mere ‘slaps on the wrist’ or involve such expensive and difficult litigation procedures that no small company or consumer could ever bring a case.
Marvin Ammori
I think the credit default swaps can take the place of the rating agencies who really have missed the ball in this procedure and are quite conflicted by the way the ratings are paid for. So, I would like to see credit default swaps become an evermore important way of understanding credit risk in the economy.
Robert F. Engle
We have to look and ensure that we’re paying attention to what we’re doing, so that we don’t reflexively institute processes and procedures that exclude people without thought.
Sonia Sotomayor
I did not want to provide a blueprint or roadmap for the terrorists, saying ‘Here are our new security procedures’.
John S. Pistole
I still maintain that you cannot treat [Donald] Trump, analyze Trump, destroy Trump the way politics says you destroy people that are running for office. I don’t think the standard, ordinary operating procedures work.
Rush Limbaugh
You will never understand bureaucracies until you understand that for bureaucrats procedure is everything and outcomes are nothing.
Thomas Sowell
Change isn’t always bad; we should always be learning and improving. But the change I was seeing involved principles, not procedures.
Tony Dungy
The CARE bill is an important piece of patient-care legislation. It will improve the quality of radiologic procedures performed throughout the United States as well as assist in reducing the cost incurred by the Federal government for these procedures.
Charles W. Pickering
I found that the walls that are created by the institutions of health care are very problematic, and I felt not good about giving people pills and procedures and then sending them back out to the things that were making them sick in the first place.
Jill Stein
There can be no stronger claim to a physician’s assistance than at the time when death is imminent, a moral judgment implied by the state’s own recognition of the legitimacy of medical procedures necessarily hastening the moment of impending death.
David Souter
Nonetheless, I sense that it will be the task of the future to somehow synthesize the sheer diversity of our present resources into a more organic and well-ordered procedure.
George Crumb
This is England,” he explained. “Tell someone it’s a procedure, and they’ll believe you. The pointless procedure is one of our great natural resources.
Maureen Johnson
The most difficult thing is the decision to act. The rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life and the procedure. The process is its own reward.
Amelia Earhart
The reader will find no figures in this work. The methods which I set forth do not require either constructions or geometrical or mechanical reasonings: but only algebraic operations, subject to a regular and uniform rule of procedure.
Joseph-Louis Lagrange
To explain the unknown by the known is a logical procedure; to explain the known by the unknown is a form of theological lunacy.
David Brooks

Isabel Paterson
Until the legal formalities are completed, one is not supposed to make it public. When a child comes home, he/she is considered to be in foster care for the first month; the legal procedures begin after that.
Mandira Bedi
Contrary to popular opinion, the hustle is not a new dance step – it is an old business procedure.
Fran Lebowitz
I always write a thing first and think about it afterward, which is not a bad procedure because the easiest way to have consequential thoughts is to start putting them down.
E. B. White
I tried to make every bit of it as creepy as I could. And I had the same response you do. I feel the same way. The hospital scenes, that procedure was so real.

John Irving
In fact, the most important reforms are those needed, without new laws, at various levels of Government, in work practices and procedures.
Narendra Modi
I went into directing having observed and learned from the best. There was a certain standard of procedure. I found that I was equal to it. I thoroughly enjoyed directing, I liked it a lot. It’s very satisfactory to see that you can do it. The art takes care of itself.
William Monahan
If the governments devalue the currency in order to betray all creditors, you politely call this procedure ‘inflation’.
George Bernard Shaw

Conor Lamb
I could think of no worse example for nations abroad, who for the first time were trying to put free electoral procedures into effect, than that of the United States wrangling over the results of our presidential election, and even suggesting that the presidency itself could be stolen by thievery at the ballot box.
Thomas Jefferson
I’ve been subject to how many security clearance procedures and I must say as irritating as some people may find them I think they are absolutely essential to making sure that people who work in sensitive positions in the national security field in our government are entirely loyal to the United States.
John Bolton

Sheldon Whitehouse
We must have the strictest adherence to security procedures to protect against compromise by hostile foreign powers.
Raja Krishnamoorthi
Kant does not think that the silly commandment “universalize your maxims” is the be-all and end-all of ethics or that it provides us with some sort of general decision procedure that is supposed to tell us what to do under all circumstances.
Allen W. Wood
I’ve always maintained that it isn’t the form that’s going to make the difference. It isn’t the rule or the procedure or the ideology, but it’s human beings that will make it.
Cesar Chavez
A lot of people say I am using all the procedures for my face. I didn’t do anything. I live a healthy life, I take care of my skin and my body. I’m against Botox, I’m against injections; I think it’s damaging your face, damaging your nerves. It’s all me. I will age gracefully, as my mom does.
Melania Trump

Paul Collier
Heaven is purpose, principle, and people. Purgatory is paper and procedure. Hell is rules and regulations.
Dee Hock
My father taught me to love detective fiction writers such as Raymond Chandler. When I decided to have a hard-boiled detective series I did a lot of studying before I wrote the first book. I learned police procedure, the California criminal law, and many areas outside my expertise.

Aisha Tyler
Our labor unions are not narrow, self-seeking groups. They have raised wages, shortened hours, and provided supplemental benefits. Through collective bargaining and grievance procedures, they have brought justice and democracy to the shop floor.
John F. Kennedy
An artist is an explorer. He has to begin by self-discovery and by observation of his own procedure. After that he must not feel under any constraint.
Henri Matisse
When we ask bureaucrats to identify who is responsible for fixing anything, they reassure us that there are ‘procedures in place.’
Michel Faber
London is one of the most civilised places in the world for the procedure of making architecture and urban design.
Renzo Piano
In any given day, our administration has about 2 million employees, and things happen. We put in process procedures to make sure if there has been any wrongdoing, there will be appropriate consequences, and we will move on.
Valerie Jarrett
All medical procedures require two hands, so in a sense it’s like when you play an instrument. That’s what they call things that they use in their work: They call them instruments. A lot of people start out majoring in medicine and drop it and change their major to music.
Tom Waits
I’ve decided to listen to my doctors and get the procedure I need on my knee. USA Basketball said I had to do what was best for me. They want me to be obviously as healthy as possible so I can continue to play this game at a high level.
Dwyane Wade
Discipline may be identified neither with an institution nor with an apparatus; it is a type of power, a modality for its exercise, comprising a whole set of instruments, techniques, procedures, levels of application, targets; it is a ‘physics’ or ‘anatomy’ of power, a technology.
Michel Foucault
Never the less, at the age of fifteen, having never seen a writer, a poet, a publisher or a magazine editor, and having only the vaguest ideas of procedure, I began working on the profession I had chosen.
Robert E. Howard
Refugees tend to avoid planes, airports and fake passports, even though flying may appear to be the most obvious way to flee. For one thing, security procedures at airports are far stricter than at land borders.
Peter Landesman
Over the years my mother’s steadfast faith in God has inspired me, particularly when I had to perform extremely difficult surgical procedures or when I found myself faced with my own medical scare.
Benjamin Carson
The man behind the check-in counter gives the impression that he has just axe-murdered the motel’s owner (and family, and family pet) and is going through these procedures of hostelry so as not to arouse suspicion.
Paul Quarrington
When you work you learn something about what you are doing and you develop habits and procedures out of what you’re doing.
Jasper Johns
Doctors said that the test most commonly used to screen for colon cancer doesn’t go far enough. They’re recommending a procedure that involves photographing the entire colon. I say, don’t vie CBS an idea for another reality show.
Bill Maher
Abortion is inherently different from other medical procedures because no other procedure involves the purposeful termination of a potential life.
Potter Stewart
There is no quick fix for illegal immigration. But only when we achieve better control of our borders and better respect for our immigration laws can we give meaning to the discussion we need to have over reforming the numbers, categories, and procedures for legal immigration into the United States.
Jan C. Ting
Abortion can never be safe. Any procedure where “success” means the killing of another human being can certainly not be safe.
Abby Johnson
My first company, Pure Software, was exciting and innovative in the first few years and bureaucratic and painful in the last few before it got acquired. The problem was we tried to systemize everything and set up perfect procedures.
Reed Hastings
It is a very real concern and my view is that everything changed on September 11th and the procedure, the policies that were in place prior to September 11th no longer should apply.
George Pataki
We’re going to establish a procedure where people can leave the line, go outside, take care of themselves and the government’s gonna pay.
Donald Trump
Cross-examination is beyond any doubt the greatest legal engine ever invented for the discovery of truth. … Cross-examination, not trial by jury, is the great and permanent contribution of the Anglo-American system of law to improved methods of trial-procedure.
John Henry Wigmore
I too remember September 11th. I remember immediately putting into place security procedures all throughout our company that did business in 170 countries where we thought corporate interests would be attacked next. To take our country back, to keep our nation safe, we have to begin by beating Hillary Clinton.
Carly Fiorina
Putting an end to usurious rates is not going to be as simple as asking banks to lay down internal guidelines, policies and procedures.
Sucheta Dalal
I have been blessed in my career and I was able to afford the extra procedures and everything to have my children. Does that make me a better mother than someone who cannot afford it? No, of course not.
Cindy Margolis
Who taught me that animals were put on this Earth for food? Who taught me to disrespect animals and view them as mere commodities? Who stole my compassion, my empathy and my conscience? Who lied to me? Who instilled this vicious mindset of human-to-animal exploitation as standard operating procedure?
Gary Yourofsky
Just as I know the usual rules of law enforcement, I also know the exceptions and invoke those frequently. I don’t feel a need to bog the reader down with an explanation of why the procedures are realistic, as long as I know that there is, in fact, an explanation.
Alafair Burke
Quotation is a method of appropriation which is invincible, I think. It’s not a procedure which displeases me, contrary to recycling.
Susan Sontag
There is in the universe something for the description and analysis of which the natural sciences cannot contribute anything. There are events beyond the range of those events that the procedures of the natural sciences are fit to observe and describe. There is human action.
Ludwig von Mises
Fig leaves of democratic procedure to hide the nakedness of Stalinist dictatorship.
George F. Kennan
Language should be an ever developing procedure and not an isolated occurrence.
Robert Smithson
Our procedures of deliberation are not ways of finding out independent moral truths but instead ways of “constructing” these truths, in the process of deciding what to do.
Allen W. Wood
It should be noted that no ethically-trained software engineer would ever consent to write a DestroyBaghdad procedure. Basic professional ethics would instead require him to write a DestroyCity procedure, to which Baghdad could be given as a parameter.
Nathaniel Borenstein
When you walk to the end of a fiction, its procedure is 1) intuitive; and 2) emotional. Its intelligence is emotional, I think.
Fred D’Aguiar
I talked to the general counsel of the DNC, and he assures me that every step along the way, when we were notified of these issues, that we changed systems, changed procedures, but these hackers are so sophisticated that they changed procedures.
Donna Brazile
To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is unnecessary.В  These procedures are an archaic bourgeois detail.В  This is a revolution!В  And a revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate.
Che Guevara
By enlivening this most basic level of life, Transcendental Meditation is that one simple procedure which can raise the life of every individual and every society to its full dignity, in which problems are absent and perfect health, happiness, and a rapid pace of progress are the natural features of life.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Here is our opportunity and our challenge. If the nuclear powers are prepared to declare a truce, let us seize the moment to strengthen the institutions and procedures which will serve as the means for the pacific settlement of disputes among men.
Haile Selassie
Doctors’ positions and recommendations about drugs, procedures, surgical interventions, health and nutrition are not always based on strong scientific evidence.
Joel Fuhrman
If you’re on a network show, it’s either some wacky sitcom or a drama where you’re servicing a procedure.
Mark Feuerstein
I had arrived at the airport one hour early so that, in accordance with airline procedures, I could stand around.
Dave Barry
I am not one to rely upon the expert procedure. It is the psychology I seek, not the fingerprint or the cigarette ash.
Agatha Christie
I don’t think the objective of an abortion clinic is to try to talk women out of having the procedure. That obviously would not be positive for their bottom line.
Bob McDonnell
I think a quality that a national security adviser must have is the ability to set up procedures.
Leon Panetta
America is the only major country that tries to ascertain who was the first applicant to invent the product or procedure. This may seem fair, but long proceedings to determine precisely when each party conceived an idea result mostly in keeping innovations from hitting the market.
Robert Pozen
Human life is held in much higher esteem, and the taking of it, whether in private quarrel or by judicial procedure, is looked upon much more seriously than it was formerly.
Elihu Root
That is very important to me, to make fertility mainstream so everyone understands it. If you want to have your miracle child, there are options: adoption, surrogacy, fertility procedures. It is also sadly very expensive, and not all insurance companies cover it.
Cindy Margolis
Effective searching procedures become, when the search-space is sufficiently large, indistinguishable from true creativity.
Richard Dawkins
The government would be making decisions about what type of care is given, what procedures can be performed, and the kind of medications prescribed. It would be a very profound change from the ideal to which we aspire.
Nan Hayworth
It’s somewhat of a normal procedure sometimes when you have a knee drained… so long as it’s not something you have to do every game.
James Worthy
In the druidical religion of liberalism, not separating your recyclables is a sin, but abortion is just a medical procedure.
Ann Coulter
A fair trial is one in which the rules of evidence are honored, the accused has competent counsel, and the judge enforces the proper courtroom procedures – a trial in which every assumption can be challenged.
Harry Browne
I strongly believe in work ethics and when certain people do not follow the procedures, I’d rather step back and weigh my options.
Madhura Naik
To understand the universe in the state that it began in, the so-called Big Bang, we need laws of physics that work better than our current set of rules and procedures, which break down when we try to push them back to the beginning.
David Gross
Looking back at his career, Mr. Rustin, a Quaker, once wrote: ‘The principal factors which influenced my life are 1) nonviolent tactics; 2) constitutional means; 3) democratic procedures; 4) respect for human personality; 5) a belief that all people are one.’
Bayard Rustin
The theoretical idea … does not arise apart from and independent of experience; nor can it be derived from experience by a purely logical procedure. It is produced by a creative act. Once a theoretical idea has been acquired, one does well to hold fast to it until it leads to an untenable conclusion.
Albert Einstein
Here is the truth: While at the University of Florida, and now at The Ohio State University, I have always followed proper reporting protocols and procedures when I have learned of an incident involving a student-athlete, coach or member of our staff by elevating the issues to the proper channels.
Urban Meyer
… scientific research is compounded of … empirical procedures, general speculative ideas, and mathematical or abstract reasoning.
James Bryant Conant
Attention should be paid to this question of our soul, and not simply to accounting procedures. Attention should be paid to the interest of those who are yet unborn, who should be able to see this generation as it saw itself, and the past generation as it saw itself.
George Lucas
The F.B.I. is about nuts and bolts. It’s all about witnesses and procedure and walking the streets.
Aaron Eckhart
I am not anti plastic surgery, but I’m anti procedures such as Botox and fillers which can actually distort the face and start making you look a bit odd.
Davina McCall
We see healthcare shifting from a procedure reimbursement, where in this country doctors are reimbursed for how many procedures they conduct, to a world where people will be reimbursed for the outcomes – did the patient actually get better, and what was the total cost of the cycle of care.
John Sculley
People are being incentivized for the wrong things. We’ve heard about a lot – doctors for procedures rather than creating wellness or maintaining wellness.
Stephen J. Dubner
As the practical value of altering consciousness becomes recognized, procedures to effect these alterations will become increasingly ordinary and unremarkable. The whole concept of changing states of consciousness will cease to have a threatening or exotic aspect.
Michael Crichton
We’ve got to get our drug industry back. Our drug industry has been disastrous. They’re leaving left and right. They supply our drugs, but they don’t make them here, to a large extent. And the other thing we have to do is create new bidding procedures for the drug industry because they’re getting away with murder.
Donald Trump
People plead guilty or admit to crimes they didn’t commit for various reasons. Certain interrogation procedures produce high rates of false confessions.
Eric Schneiderman
Insofar as it represents a genuine reconciliation of differences, a consensus is a fine thing; insofar as it represents a concealment of differences, it is a miscarriage of democratic procedure.
J. William Fulbright
We spend billions on marginal and often unnecessary procedures on people who are in the final dying process, yet we leave millions of Americans out of the health insurance system, and America’s kids have the worst dental health in the developed world.
Richard Lamm
The fundamental criterion for judging any procedure is the justice of its likely results.
John Rawls
In states where no regulation exists, anyone is permitted to perform medical imaging and radiation therapy procedures, sometimes after just a few weeks of on-the-job training.
Charles W. Pickering
