The weird thing is I feel like I’m shedding skin so fast and I’m growing and I’m becoming a new person so quickly at a rate that I’m comfortable with, yet it seems faster and more steady than an other time in my life except 16, 17, 18. I just have to sit down and listen to the ideas I’m having. And I’m not worried.

Vladimir Putin
By far the best cure for hangovers is not drinking excessively the night before.This cure has a 100% success rate, and as you save the cost of the drinks you would have otherwise drunk, it is cheaper than free.
John Green

Vaclav Smil
Taigs don’t pay rates.
Sammy Wilson
The individual does actually carry on a double existence: one designed to serve his own purposes and another as a link in a chain, in which he serves against, or at any rate without, any volition of his own.
Sigmund Freud
The federal government requires that its loans be paid back within 10 years of graduation, and Harvard has pegged its loans to the same 10-year timetable. Yet despite Harvard’s low default rate, the idea of years of loan debt is daunting for some students even before it’s time to pay back.

John F. Kennedy

Joseph Stiglitz
I really do think I can make a contribution in helping eliminate the disparity here in Australia and doing my small bit to help eliminate slavery around the world.

Benito Mussolini
… We probably funded a rate of something like one out of ten solo teams.

Tim Pawlenty
When you look at the increase in the number of scripted series and the number of unscripted hours, the pool of producers hasn’t grown at the same rate. So I think there’s a bit of a creative tax on the system.

John Olver
I still rate my first victory in the French Open at Roland Garros as my best win ever.
Mats Wilander
If you want your energy bills to go up, you should support an ever greater dependence on foreign oil, because the rate of new discoveries is declining as demand in China and India is growing, and the price of oil and thus the price of coal will go sky high.
Al Gore
I’m a lot less precious than I used to be about putting things out, for better or for worse. The result of a public that has a very high consumption rate and turnover rate is people listen to more music but spend less time with individual bits of music.
Trent Reznor
If we increase freight rates, the goods will move through the roads and the condition of the roads will become worse.
Lalu Prasad Yadav
Every country in the world is battling the rising cost of health care. No community anywhere has demonstrably lowered its health-care costs (not just slowed their rate of increase) by improving medical services. They’ve lowered costs only by cutting or rationing them.
Atul Gawande
We need economic growth in Europe and we need to find a solution for the excessive interest rates that are making it difficult for many countries to get their own debt under control.
Martin Schulz
I enjoyed teaching. I liked the students. Having to formulate my ideas about literature made them clearer. I did not particularly enjoy the more bureaucratic aspects of the job. However, if you are teaching fervently, your energy and time are used up at a great rate.
Margaret Atwood
Every year, deans of admissions are pushed: ‘Did you increase the number of applicants? Did you decrease the acceptance rate?’ And it’s an institutional priority for colleges and universities to look for students that are going to have a philanthropic family that could give to that school.
Stephanie Ruhle
With interest rates rising, gold doesn’t pay an interest rate, but every other currency – it becomes not only less important to hold gold as an alternative, but more expensive to hold it as an insurance policy and so that will be a burden on the price of gold.
Lloyd Blankfein
Thinking has, many a time, made me sad, darling; but doing never did in all my life….My precept is, do something, my sister, do good if you can; but at any rate, do something.
Elizabeth Gaskell
I have heard it said that families with many children and high birth rates are among the cause of poverty. It seems to me a simplistic opinion. I can say that the main cause of poverty is an economic system that has removed the person from the center.
Pope Francis

Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.
African-American women who develop breast cancer are more likely to die from the disease than White women of the same age. Survival rates are worse among African-Americans for colon, prostate and ovarian cancers as well.
Frank C. Garland
Whatever the tiny bubbles sitting beautifully on the surface of the absolutely delicious-looking skin around his forehead and neck were, they were doing a lot for his overall appearance…and for my heart rate.
I take two walks up hills each day, and bike ride each morning. I also have an exercise bike to increase my heart rate. My wife and I have been going to a personal trainer for weights and balance twice a week for 10 years. My balance has improved tremendously and the weights decrease my age. I only feel 52, not 82.
Robert Bateman

Second-rate minds usually condemn everything beyond their grasp.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Anthony Scaramucci
You have to do a show, an interview, you’ve got to go straight back on the road to another location, make a track and edit things like footage etc. It’s non stop. I really respect the hustle and work rate of Chipmunk, as well as N-Dubz and Tinchy Stryder.
Tinie Tempah
In America, we have the highest corporate tax rate in the world. One of the reasons why companies have so much money offshore is because it’s cheaper!

The rate of interest acts as a link between income-value and capital-value.
Irving Fisher
American families, families back home in Minnesota, know only too well that out-of-pocket expenses for health care have been rising at an astonishing rate.
Jim Ramstad
Sometimes, tax rate increases create the very problems that the spending is intended to cure. In other words, the tax rate increases reduce economic growth; they shrink the pie; they cause more poverty, more despair, more unemployment, which are all things government is trying to alleviate with spending.
Arthur Laffer
What is the right exchange rate at one point is not necessarily the right exchange rate at another.
Norman Lamont
Recent studies have revealed that children 8-10 years old are being diagnosed with Type II diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure at an alarming rate
Lee Haney
I’m trying to grow more limbs in order to multitask at a greater rate and I’m also investigating the possibilities of cloning. Because nothing would be more useful than having multiples of me, and that way, I could do all of the things I’d like to do in the short amount of time we all have here.
Ezra Miller
Honduras has one of the highest murder rates in the world. The drug trade is responsible for much of that.

Eric Schneiderman
In Greece, the unemployment rate has risen to 22%. The solution to the problem was to raise taxes on the rich, according to the Greek president Barack Obama-opolis.
Jay Leno
One of the issues that I have raised in that context is our transport system, road, rail and ports. We have raised this before, that the South African economy has grown at a rate that has overtaken the capacity of the transport system. And therefore, we have said that it is necessary to expand our capacity in the ports.
Thabo Mbeki
Deeply affecting and compulsively readable, The Fifty-First State displays Lisa Borders’ emotional acuity, first-rate skills as a storyteller, and profound empathy not only for her two compelling main characters but for an oft-neglected region and a disappearing way of life.
Christopher Castellani
I have worked with investors for 60 years and I have yet to see anyone – not even when capital gains rates were 39.9 percent in 1976-77 – shy away from a sensible investment because of the tax rate on the potential gain.
Warren Buffett
We, Homo sapiens, destroyed the majority of the large mammalian species in North America and Australasia just over 10,000 years ago. We, Homo sapiens, now are destroying the other species that presently exist on this planet at a rate of about 15,000 to 20,000 per year.
Michael Smith
My belief is India’s banking industry will continue to grow at two and a half times the GDP growth rate.

Mitt Romney
I think playing solo is a second rate activity, really. For me, playing is about playing with other people.
Derek Bailey
I don’t have a clue. These things don’t bother me. I think about the technical stuff but not how many steps or what my heart rate is.
Usain Bolt
Life holds one great but quite commonplace mystery. Though shared by each of us and known to all, seldom rates a second thought. That mystery, which most of us take for granted and never think twice about, is time.
Michael Ende
If that’s true and the rate stays like that for another 40 years, there’s a good probability that somebody who is active in the credit economy for that period of time might be a victim. But that’s not a given.
Keith Anderson
India’s saving rate will go up. India’s investment rate will go up. And I believe that’s a plus point.

People in government and public life are being kicked around at a high rate of speed.
Arlen Specter
I’ve always been baffled by how much we over-rate the statistically insignificant differences that separate competitors at the top end of the distribution.
Malcolm Gladwell
It is doubling now every two years. Doubling every two years means multiplying by 1,000 in 20 years. At that rate we’ll meet 100 percent of our energy needs in 20 years.
Ray Kurzweil
Nobody can be so beautiful from the outside and so hollow from inside. Not even in a third-rate novel.
Marlene van Niekerk
Here’s the problem if you keep raising tax rates: You slow down economic growth.
Paul Ryan
Let your life be a counter-friction to stop the machine. What I have to do is to see, at any rate, that I do not lend myself to the wrong which I condemn.
Henry David Thoreau
Where you stand today does not matter; it is the direction in which your are moving, and the rate at which you travel, that count.
Emmet Fox

Lynsay Sands
India’s growth rate will be accelerated, but in the process, America would also benefit.

Tom Golisano
Doctors cannot afford to provide care at the rate of reimbursement that Medicare insists that they accept.

Adam Smith
The best form of welfare for the troops is first-rate training.
Erwin Rommel
My main efforts focussed on trying to identify the rate controlling steps during the cell cycle. Crucial for this analysis were wee mutants that were advanced prematurely through the cell cycle and so divided at a reduced cell size.
Paul Nurse
It is education that will arm us with the tools that will enable us to succeed and put a stop to the rising rates of preventable death.
Christy Turlington
I think the rapid rate at which people started caring and paying attention, because it’s just something that I don’t think you can really prepare for – there’s no textbook on it. Just the amount of interest that people have in me and Alice and the “Twilight” series and the rest of my cast.
Ashley Greene
The United States already has the highest corporate tax rate in the world.
Scott DesJarlais
I have a simple plan to solve the economic crisis. Give every American a $100 credit to the dog track of their choice. I have found the puppies to be a reliable source of income with a consistent rate of return.
Willie Geist
The animated books pay the lowest rates at the Big Two and you can forget about royalties.
Mark Millar
Nationwide, 1 in 3 black men can expect to serve time behind bars, but the rates are far higher in segregated and impoverished black communities.
Michelle Alexander
I am reading Sienkiewicz. What tormenting reading. What a powerful genius! And there never was such a first-rate writer of the second-rate class.
Witold Gombrowicz
Education is the key to the future: You’ve heard it a million times, and it’s not wrong. Educated people have higher wages and lower unemployment rates, and better-educated countries grow faster and innovate more than other countries. But going to college is not enough. You also have to study the right subjects.
Alex Tabarrok
From 1950 to 2000, the U.S. economy grew at an average rate of 3.5 percent. That generated a massive gain in real GDP per person from $16,000 to over $50,000. A huge win for the middle class.
Lawrence Kudlow
Most of us know when we are about to react emotionally. We can feel it. Often there is a brief warning before the amygdala hijack. For some of us, it is butterflies in the stomach; for some, it is an increased heart rate, and for others, it is a feeling of agitation.
Elizabeth Thornton
You can compromise on anything else in your life but love. It’s the one time where under no circumstances should you let yourself have second rate.
Oliver Sykes
If the rate of change on the outside exceeds the rate of change on the inside, the end is near.
Jack Welch
I just feel like it’s my job to take care of my body. I play a contact sport, 99.9 percent injury rate. As far as being injury-prone or getting hurt, it’s going to happen. But it’s my job to take care of my body, come week in and week out.
Stefon Diggs
The qualities of a second-rate writer can easily be defined, but a first-rate writer can only be experienced. It is just the thing in him which escapes analysis that makes him first-rate.
Willa Cather
If you assume any rate of improvement at all then the games will become indistinguishable from reality. It would seem to follow that the odds that we are in base reality would be one in billions.
Jean Baudrillard
Artists, in theory, should not be limited to their personal experience, culture, identity, and worldview. But they must also accept that the degree of difficulty in imagining beyond their own borders is steep, and the failure rate is high.
Sarah Weinman
Any acceleration constitutes progress, Miss Glory. Nature had no understanding of the modern rate of work. From a technical standpoint the whole of childhood is pure nonsense. Simply wasted time. An untenable waste of time.
Karel Capek
Women continue receiving less salary for the same kind of job. Women have a higher unemployment rate in our country. When you analyze the composition of poverty, you will find that most of the families in poverty are being run by a woman.
Laura Chinchilla
….decay and disfavor came together as other parts of the coast were developed, and the canals became weed-clogged ditches breeding mosquitoes, and the hotels were turned into third-rate apartments.
Edward Bunker
The marginal tax rate for high income earners is going up. Small businesses are no longer enjoying some of the exemption from payroll tax. Now there will be carbon taxes.
Chris Alexander
The exercise of voluntary attention in the schoolroom must therefore be counted one of the most important points of training that take place there; and the first-rate teacher, by the keenness of the remoter interests which he is able to awaken, will provide abundant opportunities for its occurrence.
William James
Large corporations and unions know the power of being big enough to bargain for better rates.
Greg Walden
He must understand that if he is the world’s finest plum and someone he loves does not like plums, he has the choice of becoming a banana. But he must be warned that if he chooses to become a banana, he will be a second rate banana. But he can always be the best plum.
Leo Buscaglia
Income should be taxed one time at one rate, not again and again.
Grover Norquist
Many companies are disappointing the citizens of this world by manipulating labor rates, putting horse meat instead of beef out there, or thinking it’s totally acceptable to make a T-shirt from a collapsing factory. Increasingly, people don’t want to work for these companies, and consumers don’t want to buy from them.
Paul Polman
Would your reply possibly be this? Well, it all depends on what my tax rate will be on the gain you’re saying we’re going to make. If the taxes are too high, I would rather leave the money in my savings account, earning a quarter of 1 percent. Only in Grover Norquist’s imagination does such a response exist.
Warren Buffett
I may not be a first-rate composer, but I am a first-class second-rate composer.
Richard Strauss
The idea that Bill Gates (one of the founders of Microsoft) has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he, by peddling second rate technology, led them into it in the first place…
Douglas Adams
If I were, to pick out the most valuable personal traits of a fighter pilot, aggressiveness would rate high on the list. Time and again, I have seen aggressive action, even from a disadvantageous position, completely rout a powerful Nip formation.
Charles H. MacDonald
The data does not support that high-income tax cuts are the main drivers of growth, so I don’t think that uncertainty over what the tax rate will be for someone that makes a million dollars a year has that big an impact on the economic growth rate in the country.
Austan Goolsbee
An actual understanding of our economy is that our economy most depends on our rate of innovation… It’s not actually understood by most of the people running for office, but it’s not in fact disputed.
Chris Gabrieli
DivX Plus Streaming is adaptive bit rate streaming solutions, which means it works by detecting a user bandwidth and CPU capacity in real time and adjusting the quality of the video stream accordingly.
Alfred Amoroso
Ebola has not yet come into contact with modern medicine in West Africa. But when protocols for the provision of high quality supportive care are followed, the case fatality rate for Ebola may be lower than 20 percent.
Paul Farmer
A book that I rate only second in importance in evolution theory to Darwin ‘s Origin (this as joined with its supplement Of Man), and also rate as undoubtedly one of the greatest books of the twentieth century
Ronald Fisher
If hardship brought out the worst in people, the human race wouldn’t have survived. Right after 9/11, for instance, the murder rate actually went down in New York City. In World War II during the Blitz, the civilians of London were bombed almost every night for six months, but psychiatric admissions declined.
Sebastian Junger
I am an average player, but even the great players don’t have an average of 42, with a strike-rate of 75.
You’re always as good as your last movie and that’s the same with politics. If you are successful with a certain policy, then you’re hot; if you’re successful with the economy, or bringing down the unemployment rate, then you’re hot. But if you’re not successful, then things go south very quickly.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
It’s a finite and very competitive world. All large aggregations of capital eventually find it hell on earth to grow and thus find a lower rate of return.
Charlie Munger
I think and speak clearer since I cut the dairy out. I can breathe better and perform at a better rate, and my voice is clearer. I can explore different things with my voice that I couldn’t do because of my meat and dairy ingestion. I am proud and blessed to be a vegetarian, everything became clear.
If children were brought into the world by an act of pure reason alone, would the human race continue to exist? Would not a man rather have so much sympathy with the coming generation as to spare it the burden of existence, or at any rate not take it upon himself to impose that burden upon it in cold blood?
Arthur Schopenhauer
Those who have nothing else to recommend them to the respect of others but only their blood, cry it up at a great rate, and have their mouth perpetually full of it. They swell and vapor, and you are sure to hear of their families and relations every third word.
Pierre Charron
Finally we promised to limit the birth rate. And this you really didn’t believe; you smiled scornfully. Well, even in this things have gone well. The fact is that we have grown by over seventy millions in ten years, but it’s also true that we have grown less than many other countries, including the countries of Europe.
Indira Gandhi
I’m trying to think of – knock on wood – how young people would feel today if our president and our leaders were shot at. But… our young people are being killed at an astonishing rate, and times seem dark.
John Cho
The summation of human experience is being expanded at a prodigious rate, and the means we use for threading through the consequent maze to the momentarily important item is the same as was used in the days of square-rigged ships.
Vannevar Bush
Tech innovation is something societies have to pursue as vigorously as they can. We have to innovate civically and socially at the same rate; otherwise, you create unfortunate disruptions, and that’s where you have people opposing technological innovations.
Nick Hanauer
I would rate the fact that I get to be alive a big beautiful 10. Satisfaction with myself – work in progress.
Eve Ensler
Do you know the rate of military enlistment among Hispanics is higher than any demographic in this country?
Ted Cruz
Wisdom is the talent of buying virtuous pleasures at the cheapest rate.
Henry Fielding
A dead man who never caused others to die seldom rates a statue.
W. H. Auden
The demand for organic food is growing at a remarkable rate. Consumers have made it clear that they want organic produce and every sector of the food chain is responding, with the kind of results we have just seen.
Prince Charles
What we have to do, what at any rate it is our duty to do, is to revive the old art of Lying.
Oscar Wilde
I set out to become the greatest lover in Vienna, the greatest horseman in Austria, and the greatest economist in the world. Alas, for the illusions of youth: as a horseman, I was never really first-rate.
Joseph A. Schumpeter
I ate everything and I never exercised or even went for a walk. I guess I had a great metabolic rate.
Neelam Kothari
Consumer spending is now plunging at serious-recession rate … even if the rescue now in train succeeds in unfreezing credit markets, the real economy has immense downward momentum. In addition to financial rescues, we need major stimulus programs.
Paul Krugman
We’ve seen tremendous progress in many ways under President [Barack] Obama. I mean, if we think about where the economy was when he got in – you know, we were losing more than 700,000 jobs a month. The unemployment rate was skyrocketing. And now it’s at under 5 percent, so there is a lot of progress that has happened.
Julian Castro
It seems to me that a market exchange rate which is not artificially controlled by central banks enables one to balance the interests of different market players – exporters and importers, investors, borrowers, lenders.
Elvira Nabiullina
If I eat something a little crazy or if I feel sluggish, I know I have to eat better the next day and work out. I work out, I do circuit training so I try to keep my heart rate up whether I’m doing cardio, lifting weights or jumping rope. I like to mix it up. I also take Zumba classes – I love those, those are a blast.
Jordin Sparks
If you look at casualties, you find countries that had much higher loss rates per capita than the US. Denmark comes to mind, the United Kingdom, they have suffered heavy losses at various points, the Germans as well.
David Petraeus
I rate Morrissey as one of the best lyricists in Britain. For me, he’s up there with Bryan Ferry.
David Bowie
Anything that’s slightly dangerous and gets the heart rate going is my kind of workout.
Ellen Hollman
With issues like our country’s teen-age pregnancy rate, fashion’s importance ranks right up there with cleaning your ears. Except right before going on television to talk about teen-age pregnancy rates, when all I can think of is what I’m going to wear.
Jane Pratt
Indeed, when all parties campaign effectively the overall effect is to push up voting rates, as you see in tight marginal seats or close general elections. That must be good for democracy.
Lucy Powell
I think the actions taken by the (rate-setting) Federal Open Market Committee have been the appropriate actions. And I assume we will continue to take the appropriate actions, depending on what is happening with the data and the dynamics of the economy
Bill Vaughan
If financial assets no longer work for you at a rate far and above the rate of true wealth creation, then you must work longer for your money.
Bill Gross
Elizabeth Bishop in particular had a big impact on me personally as well as artistically. Her insistence on clarity is something I rate very highly.
Jonathan Galassi
A large part of crime is economics – if people are working and and have a home and family to support, then I believe you can reduce the crime rate.
Frank Vincent
If the mortality rate seems high we must realize that Nature is a ruthless teacher. There are no second chances in Mother Nature’s Survival Course.
William S. Burroughs
I think the millions of people who had been able to renegotiate their mortgages so they are paying lower interest rates are better off.
David Axelrod
All the circuit training, it’s cardio circuit training, so everything you’re doing, you’re still running up your heart rate. You’re burning, I think, triple the amount of calories than if you were just weight lifting.
Khloe Kardashian
But at any rate, the point is that God is what nobody admits to being, and everybody really is.
Alan Watts
Instead of wishing to see more doctors made by women joining what there are, I wish to see as few doctors, either male or female, as possible. For, mark you, the women have made no improvement they have only tried to be “men” and they have only succeeded in being third-rate men.
Florence Nightingale
I’m at peace with myself. My film just may please audiences. At any rate, it’s already a great prize to be part of just 16 films among all of the world cinema out there. I’m tranquil and satisfied.
Michel Ocelot
This notion of universal Windows apps is a very powerful concept because we’re now aggregating the 300-plus-million-socket run rate of Windows into one opportunity for our developers.
Satya Nadella
Don’t judge your meditations. Don’t rate them. The physical mind cannot tell how well you did. As long as you are sitting there trying, something will happen.
Frederick Lenz
Anticipated rents, and bills unpaid,
Force many a shining youth into the shade,
Not to redeem his time, but his estate,
And play the fool, but at the cheaper rate.
William Cowper
At the risk of some oversimplification, if the skill composition of our work force meshed fully with the needs of our increasingly complex capital-stock, wage-skill differentials would be stable, and the percentage changes in wage rates would be the same for all job grades.
Alan Greenspan
Who shaped me the most was Thomas Tuchel. For the simple reason that he was my own trainer and the exchange was so much more intense. I can rate how he really thinks.
Julian Nagelsmann
Being a writer is a rather hazardous occupation and there is a horribly high rate of writers who barely have the money for the paper and pen they use for their craft.
Herbert Gold
The reality is that business and investment spending are the true leading indicators of the economy and the stock market. If you want to know where the stock market is headed, forget about consumer spending and retail sales figures. Look to business spending, price inflation, interest rates, and productivity gains.
Mark Skousen
Instead of rating the man by his performances, we rate too frequently the performances by the man.
Samuel Johnson
If our society continues at its present rate to become less livable as it becomes more affluent, we promise all to end up in sumptuous misery.
John W. Gardner
An indirect quotation we can usually expect to rate only as better or worse, more or less faithful, and we cannot even hope for astrict standard of more and less; what is involved is evaluation, relative to special purposes, of an essentially dramatic act.
Willard Van Orman Quine
The rate of human invention is faster, and the rate of cultural loss is slower, in areas occupied by many competing societies with many individuals and in contact with societies elsewhere.
Jared Diamond
We have in England a curious belief in first-rate people, meaning all the people we do not know; and this consoles us for the undeniable second-rateness of the people we do know.
George Bernard Shaw
Well, we’re about 24 million subscribers today, and that’s up from about 15 million a year ago, so it’s a very high rate of growth, and that’s what’s exciting about the business – more and more people are getting smart TVs, they’re watching Netflix on their iPads.
Reed Hastings
The rate of growth of the management skills of any country is inversely proportional to the number of MBAs. Germany produces no MBAs, but America used to produce MBAs by the millions, and you saw the German economy, until at least the ’90s, was certainly more efficient than the American economy.
Jairam Ramesh
Close loopholes, close the special interest Washington carve outs and that means more incomes subject to taxation so we`re going to lower the rates on our businesses and be fair.
Paul Ryan
As a result of the current universal benefit, the poverty rate for seniors in America is about 10%. Without the universal benefit, it would be over 50%.
Steve Israel
We’re all moving at such a high rate that we have to grab frozen dinners and McDonald’s. We can’t make it a way of life – we have to get back to real, simple, clean good foods. It will save our lives on so many levels; not just spina bifida, but obesity, diabetes, everything. Food is our medicine.
Nicole Ari Parker
You’d believe that a patient with hypertension, if you know you have hypertension or diabetes, you would take your drug every day. The compliance rate is more like 30% or 40%. Which means that 60% of patients don’t take their drugs, and they actually go into these crises, end up in the hospital.
Patrick Soon-Shiong
We aren’t safe in our own home, in our own country, and in our own land. For me, it is the most ridiculous thing ever. The rate at which women are being harmed is rapidly growing and is unacceptable.
Shibani Dandekar
Watch out for negative power places on the earth, if you can “see” they are reddish and they twist your feelings. They don’t vibrate at a rate conducive to humanity.
Frederick Lenz
We are being wiped off the face of this earth
At an extremely alarming rate
And even more alarming is the fact
That we are not fighting back
Tupac Shakur
No one has a monopoly of the true God, nor is there a nation or religion that can claim, or at any rate prove, that it has been given the exclusive right to the Creator or sole knowledge of His Being.
Jose Rizal
Failure is a prerequisite for great success. If you want to succeed faster, double your rate of failure.
Brian Tracy
There’s a technical reason why I think that frame rate is weird and it has to with your brain’s ability to scan beyond a certain rate. The point is I find it looks weird.
Steven Soderbergh
You have to see the stories [The New York Times] have written, it’s one after another, after another, and facts mean nothing, third-rate journalism. The great editors of the past from the New York Times and others, ladies and gentlemen, are spinning in their grave.
Donald Trump
If the growth rate is so good that in another ten years the company might well have quadrupled, is it really of such great concern whether at the moment the stock might or might not be 35% overpriced?
Philip Arthur Fisher
No one should expect the value of their house to appreciate quickly – counting on your home to be a significant part of your retirement saving isn’t a winning strategy – but it is reasonable to expect that prices generally will rise with at least the rate of inflation for some time to come.
Mark Zandi
Nothing less will shake a man — or at any rate a man like me — out of his merely verbal thinking and his merely notional beliefs. He has to be knocked silly before he comes to his senses. Only torture will bring out the truth. Only under torture does he discover it himself.
C. S. Lewis
If Warren Buffett made his money from ordinary income rather than capital gains, his tax rate would be a lot higher than his secretary’s. In fact a very small percentage of people in this country pay a big chunk of the taxes.
Michael Bloomberg
Imagine you owe on five credit cards, you owe five debts. So which debt should you pay first? And the answer is very simple: You should pay the one with the highest interest rate first. But that’s not what people do.
Dan Ariely
Life is little more than a loan shark: It exacts a very high rate of interest for the few pleasures it concedes
Luigi Pirandello
I knew Id always be a second-rate academic, and I thought, Well, Id rather be a second-rate novelist or even a third-rate one.
Sarah Waters
I’ve always avoided those sorts of self-assessments because if you give yourself a 10 out of 10 people think you’re a big head, if you give yourself a 6 out of 10 they think you’re plagued with self-doubt, so I’m just not going to rate myself.
Tony Abbott
The English mind is always in a rage. The intellect of the race is wasted in the sordid and stupid quarrels of second-rate politicians or third-rate theologians.
Oscar Wilde
North Carolina needs to revamp the tax code completely. We have some of the highest tax rates, like the corporate tax rate, in the country.
David Rouzer
In terms of sustainability and what we eat and what its footprint is on the environment and the consequences of eating one thing versus another, obviously it makes a lot of sense to be eating insects. They’re incredibly plentiful. They’ve got a very short turnover rate. You could be eating termites.
Mary Roach
We don’t have a major problem right now in our country, and life is normal. Things like unemployment, which the youth are suffering from, and the rate of inflation – these are chronic conditions and we have to solve them.
Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani
The young bloods of the South: sons of planters, lawyers about towns, good billiard-players and sportsmen, men who never did any work and never will… They are splendid riders, first-rate shots and utterly reckless. These men must all be killed or employed by us before we can hope for peace.
William Tecumseh Sherman
It is a country that professes to care for babies. But in the United States, the infant death rate is twice as high as in similarly wealthy countries. Premature birth and low birth weight are common ailments, with lifelong and even intergenerational effects.
Annie Lowrey
It is unconceivable that the whole Universe was merely created for us who live in this third-rate planet of a third-rate moon.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
What is a danger is that we stay stuck in a new normal where unemployment rates stay high, people who have jobs see their incomes go up, businesses make big profits. But they’re learned to do more with less, and so they don’t hire.
Barack Obama
If you can slow the biological process of aging, even a minor slowdown in the rate at which we age yields improvements in virtually every condition of frailty and disability and mortality that we see at later ages.
S. Jay Olshansky
The single greatest invention man ever conceived in the dollar bill, because I don’t want to know the conversion rate for coconuts.
John Smith
If an enterprise does not aspire to be the best of its kind, it will attract second-rate employees, and it will be soon forgotten.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Networked science has the potential to speed up dramatically the rate of discovery across all of science.
Michael Nielsen
Whenever you hear news about jobless claims or the unemployment rate, you should translate that in your mind to one simple phrase: Stay in school.
Adam Davidson
I will say this: the central banks can actually support growth beyond a point. When there is no inflation, they can cut interest rates, and that is the way they support growth, but if you cut interest rate to the bone, there is nothing more to cut. It is very hard to support growth beyond that.
Raghuram Rajan
It’s really a question of fairness and what kind of country we’re going to live in. There are 22,000 people making over $1 million. They’re paying an effective tax rate in the teens. As Warren Buffett said, he pays less in taxes effectively than his secretary does. That’s not right.
David Plouffe
Every art form changes, often at rates and in ways that cause discomfort to its devotees. But the arts also have a remarkable ability to withstand and absorb those changes, and to prove wrong the prophecies of their demise.
A. O. Scott
The reason that I discouraged my boys as I was discouraged was not because of wrestling itself. The reason I discouraged them as a father was from having lived the lifestyle – like my father did – and understanding the hardships that come along with it. It’s not the wrestling itself. It’s the 90 percent divorce rate.
Ted DiBiase Sr.
Before TikTok, things were going okay but there wasn’t the rate of growth that I wanted to see.
One of the problems with technology is that no photograph, as superb and outstanding as it may be, will ever be as satisfying as the most middle-rate painting.
Perry Brass
The insanity rate per capita in South Africa is appalling. …it is easily seen that a primary requisite in any programme of the rehabilitation of the Bantu in South Africa would be mental health.
L. Ron Hubbard
Art, at any rate in a novel, must be indissolubly linked with craft.
Elizabeth Bowen
Not everybody will get a chance to play in this league. You know, there’s a transition rate of about 300 guys a year, that come into the league and leave the league. So the average career expectancy is a little bit under four years, so that doesn’t mean you’re gonna play forever.
Ron Rivera
According to the Bank of England the economy is growing too fast so interest rates must rise to counter the supposed inflationary threat.
Harry Enfield
We learn to avoid blocking others, interfering with others, because that will decrease our happiness, slow our vibratory rate and generally bring us down and make us miserable.
Frederick Lenz
The rate of childhood obesity is just ridiculous. Anytime I can get involved with teaching them how to get physical exercise, I want to help in any way possible
Shannon Miller
Clear communication is always important in central banking, but it can be especially important when economic conditions call for further policy stimulus but the policy rate is already at its effective lower bound.
Ben Bernanke
In addition to a soaring stock market, 6.6 million jobs have been created since tax relief measures went into effect in 2003. Our deficit situation has also improved as tax revenues have increased at double-digit rates over the past two years.
Randy Neugebauer
Foreign investors like decisiveness; they like clarity. There isn’t any confusion about Ireland’s corporate tax rate: it is 12.5%. End of story.
Enda Kenny
Students who are put in a university who aren’t qualified tend to have lower graduation rates, they have lower grades, they have lower bar passage rates. You can demonstrate that. You are putting them in position where they are not set up to succeed.
Mary Kissel
Since 1994, unemployment rates are lower. Median household income is higher. A greater percentage of Americans are graduating from college. Home ownership rates are higher. And the violent crime rate has decreased.
Cliff Stearns
Large corporations make strategic investment decisions based upon calculations of rate of return and payback period, not to promote the social justice ideas of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Charlie Kirk
The prison-industrial complex, poverty, and the school system has more effect on a young black male in America than Jay-Z does, by far. And that’s not a diss to Jay-Z. The crime rate in the black community was high before hip hop. Rapping about it is just a reflection of the life a lot of people are living.
John Legend
The promise of Western capitalism of ever rising rates of pay has turned out to be the cheque that bounced
Jeremy Paxman
Nothing like poetry when you lie awake at night. It keeps the old brain limber. It washes away the mud and sand that keeps on blocking up the bends. Like waves to make the pebbles dance on my old floors. And turn them into rubies and jacinths; or at any rate, good imitations.
Joyce Cary
We book our exports forward for more than a year, and so we have a fixed rate. We do not get the spot rate that we see in the market every day.
Baba Kalyani
Competition is the final price determinant and competitive prices may result in profits which force you to accept a rate of return less than you hoped for, or for that matter to accept temporary losses
Alfred P. Sloan
When I walk, I try to set a fairly brisk rate. I love walking outside. I hate machines like treadmills. The path that I have chosen to walk is just city streets, but you see pretty houses, trees… my routes have some hills in them; it’s not just straight walking. You have to exercise your heart and lungs.
Rita Moreno
I think the concern over rising interest rates is ahead of itself because I think inflationary fears themselves might be premature.
Sung Won Sohn
We have sacrificed the old immaterial gods, and now we are occupying the temple of the Market-God. He organizes our economy, our politics, our habits, our lives, and even provides us with rates and credit cards and gives us the appearance of happiness.
Jose Mujica
Trinity Taylor and Ginger Minj both went on one of these big roast tours where the comedians all make fun of each other and I wrote their sets for that. Sometimes I help Monet X Change punch up jokes for her show, ‘The X Change Rate.’ I don’t charge Monet because she’s my best friend.
Bob the Drag Queen
It is right that people should have a statuary right to holidays and a maximum working week. It is right that part-time workers should have the same equality when it comes to hourly rates.
John Richard Reid
[S]uppose you make a hole in an ordinary evacuated electric light bulb and allow the air molecules to pass in at the rate of 1,000,000 a second, the bulb will become full of air in approximately 100,000,000 years.
Francis William Aston
I do a lot of yoga, it keeps you flexible and you recover from injury quickly and I try to keep my heart rate up the entire time.
Christopher Daniels
The fastest way to succeed is to double your rate of failure.
Thomas Watson
The Democrats have so corrupted our understanding of economics and productivity that lowering tax rates is now considered to be some kind of sop to the rich. I mean, it’s just profound to me, the damage inflicted on this country by the Democrats in their pursuit of perpetual power.
Rush Limbaugh
I think what I’m trying to build is a reputation for evolving and for change. Because of the rate of information that we have access to at this point, it’s almost hard not to be ever-growing.
To get high data transfer rates in communicating information, you would love to use optical fibers. The problem is that light is extremely hard to manipulate. So we make a perfect copy of the information carried by the light. We transfer it to matter – the condensate.
Presidential money is almost like the housing bubble. It’s growing at such an astronomical rate, you think it can’t get any bigger.
Chuck Todd
The gross profits in many workouts appear quite small. It’s a little like looking for parking meters with some time left on them. However, the predictability coupled with a short holding period produces quite decent average annual rates of return after allowance for the occasional substantial loss.
Warren Buffett
Whether you think Jesus was God or not, you must admit he was a first-rate political economist.
George Bernard Shaw
The high price of health care in this country is a serious issue that demands serious attention. Putting limits on damages have little or no effect on skyrocketing malpractice insurance rates.
Mary Landrieu
As smoking has disappeared from television screens, planes, bars and restaurants, and other public spaces, the smoking rate has dropped to a third of its peak of 45 percent in the mid-1950s.
Annie Lowrey
If you play football, there’s going to be a 100 percent injury rate. Something is going to be bothering you. So I just try to focus on the things that I can do to help my team.
Larry Fitzgerald
Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness, and yet so many Americans are left to fight this battle without the coverage, support, and resources they need.
Ted Deutch
HARRY DRESDEN—WIZARD Lost Items Found. Paranormal Investigations. Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates. No Love Potions, Endless Purses, Parties, or Other Entertainment
Jim Butcher
When you are only one vendor, there is a very low rate of innovation. You think the old architecture is just fine, and it can just happily exist for many years.
Peter Levine
When once a woman is married she should be regarded as having thrown off her allegiance to her own sex. She is sure to be treacherous at any rate in one direction.
Anthony Trollope
The rate at which a person can mature is directly proportional to the embarrassment he can tolerate.
Douglas Engelbart
You hear headlines from time to time about the Amazon rainforest disappearing at a greater or lesser rate…. The real story is that over time the rate has stayed just the same. Year after year, decade after decade, we have failed to stop or really even decrease deforestation.
Patrick Symmes
In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, believed to have one of the highest rates of sexual violence in the world, girls and women face increased peril on the road to safety.
We actually know that our crumbling pipelines, roads, and bridges are ticking time bombs. That is why President Obama and Congressional Democrats have pushed to fund jobs that repair our roads, runways, and railways – we can’t have first rate American communities with third-world American infrastructure.
Christine Pelosi
I don’t really rate these matches as winning or losing, Sydney and Kooyong. That’s not important to me. What’s important for me is to get out on the court, do my thing and work on a few things I needed to do.
Bernard Tomic
Refinancing your mortgage usually makes sense if you can lower your interest rate by at least two points. But the most important question to ask yourself is, how long will it take you to break even?
Barbara Corcoran
The high rate of unemployment among teenagers, and especially black teenagers, is both a scandal and a serious source of social unrest. Yet it is largely a result of minimum wage laws. We regard the minimum wage law as one of the most, if not the most, anti-black laws on the statute books.
Milton Friedman
In Washington State, the immigrant population has grown by 42 percent in the five years between 2000 and 2005 – which is an increase from 8 percent to 10.6 percent of the overall population – and the jobless rate in the state has hit a 6 year low.
Dave Reichert
Nothing is more painful to me than the disdain with which people treat second-rate authors, as if there were room only for the first-raters.
Charles Augustin Sainte-Beuve
The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking.
A. A. Milne
The test of a first-rate work, and a test of your sincerity in calling it a first-rate work, is that you finish it.
Arnold Bennett
Unfortunately, the (budget) does not . . . help Congress reform such programs as Medicaid and Medicare, which both grow at average rate of around 8 percent each year through 2015 and will continue to eat up more of the total federal budget.
John Cornyn
When Indian economy was growing at the rate of 8 to 9 percent, I think everybody was quite happy. Even when there were defects in our policies, they were overlooked, and when the economy slows down, people try to find fault and excuses.
Manmohan Singh
Greece will not manage to get back on its feet without restructuring its debt. There is no way around it. The country’s creditors will have to reduce a portion of its debts by extending maturity dates, lowering interest rates or giving them what’s called a ‘haircut’ in financial jargon.
Peer Steinbruck
India’s infrastructure has to be modernized, has to be expanded at a rate which will I think be consistent with the growth requirements.
Manmohan Singh
If you’re in a situation where your effective tax rate is so much lower than any other company, then obviously you have a much better position when it comes to compete on prices and everything else.
Margrethe Vestager
There is a rare exception of mainstream sports that have a fatality rate. That’s motor sports and rodeo, … football, baseball, basketball, hockey, you make a mistake and you give up a run or some points. In these two sports, if you make a mistake, it could cost you your life.
Don Andrews
You can’t slow down intense people. They have to burn at their own rate.
Gerald Nicosia
Climate change is the world’s greatest environmental challenge. It is now plain that the emission of greenhouse gases, associated with industrialization and economic growth…is causing global warming at a rate that is unsustainable.
Tony Blair
The theory is that if you take interest rates negative, people are going to say, “That’s a silly game! I’m not going to lend my money to governments who want me to pay them. I am going to go into the stock market where I can get positive returns!”
Mohamed El-Erian
If we socialized boys like girls, we would have a much lower crime rate in America.
Meda Chesney-Lind
There’s always a ‘but’ when it comes to jobs. Like, I love my job but my colleagues are first-rate, but…a couple of them like to dress like superheroes on the weekend and I can’t help but wonder if they’re nuts.” – Logan
Nicholas Sparks
A key impact of recent events was a very persistent, if not permanent shock in the oil supply. This was caused as the oil industry hit geological boundaries, which meant that it could no longer maintain the historic growth rates in petroleum extraction.
Michael Kumhof
Canada has one of the highest rates of insanity in any civilized country and one reason might be that life in many places is so desperately dull.
Robertson Davies
There is a much bigger issue with student loan rates, the cost of tuition; those are some huge problems that need to be resolved.
Alexis Ohanian
If I can’t do one thing, which is a lower body exercise, then I’m gonna use my upper body, and I’m gonna get stronger upper body. If I’m not getting stronger upper body, I’ll be working on my cardiovascular – swimming or other exercises where I can get my heart rate up.
Colby Covington
We had 90 percent rates, but nobody paid them. And so you had all these exemptions, exclusions, shelters, all this kind of stuff. And that’s why most Americans are saying, ‘Look, let’s just be honest. Let’s have lower rates, but everybody pays them.’
Rick Santorum
My state has the highest child poverty rate in all of New England, above the national average.
Patrick J. Kennedy
Within the black community, roughly 60 percent of children are born to single moms. Moms don’t have the emotional wherewithal to deal with their children. Their English is atrocious. Their speaking is atrocious. The dropout rate is horrendous.
Walter Dean Myers
In many parts of the Bible Belt, the divorce rate was discovered to be roughly 50 percent above the national average.
Ronald J. Sider
with a mental equipment which allows me to tell the difference between hot and cold, I stand out in this community like a modern day Cicero. Dropped into any other city of the world, I’d rate as a possibly adequate night watchman.
Anita Loos
I can’t rate myself, but if you ask Russell I’m sure he’d give me a ten out of ten.
Katy Perry
The dilemma of modern society: the conflict between the need for capital formation at a high rate and the popular condemnation of interest and dividends as “unearned income” and “capitalist,” if not as sinful and wicked.
Peter Drucker
Travel broadens, they say. My personal experience has been that, in the short term at any rate, it merely flattens, aiming its steam-roller of deadlines and details straight at one’s daily life, leaving a person flat and gasping at its passage.
Laurie R. King
If I cannot brag of knowing something, then I brag of not knowing it; at any rate, brag.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Technology plows through history at an accelerating rate, shifting the burden of production off labor into the nonhuman factor because man uses his highest ingenuity to avoid servile labor.
Louis O. Kelso
All I know about thermal pollution is that if we continue our present rate of growth in electrical energy consumption it will simply take, by the year 2000, all our freshwater streams to cool the generators and reactors.
David R. Brower
When consumers purchase more goods, plants use more of their capacity, men are hired instead of laid off, investment increases, and profits are high. Corporate tax rates must also be cut to increase incentives and the availability of investment capital.
John F. Kennedy
In the United States women develop MS at approximately twice the rate men do, and no one can explain why women are affected most often from the waist down
Annette Funicello
Well, rates would go up whether you deregulate or not, and of course, the rates that are going up right now on the electricity side are still within the regulated framework.
Kenneth Lay
We talk about saving time and killing time when actually we can’t do either. We have no choice but to spend it at a constant and flowing rate.
Michael LeBoeuf
High tax rates are followed by attempts of ingenious men to beat them as surely as surely as snow is followed by little boys on sleds.
Arthur Melvin Okun
The result of a public that has a very high consumption rate and turnover rate is people listen to more music but spend less time with individual bits of music. It’s made me more likely to put things up quickly and treat it more like a magazine instead of a novel.
Trent Reznor
E-mail is a modern Penny Post: the world is a single city with a single postal rate.
Anne Fadiman
The Colombian economy is very strong. We have one of the highest rates of growth in Latin America.
Juan Manuel Santos
There is no madder nation than Japan. … And that nation has the highest rate of suicide, has the highest rate of thick-lens glasses and did the most suicidal trick a few years ago. It’s the doggonedest country.
L. Ron Hubbard
It is impossible that the intention of the entrepreneur who has borrowed in order to increase investment can become effective (except in substitution for investment by other entrepreneurs which would have occurred otherwise) at a faster rate than the public decide to increase their savings
John Maynard Keynes
You have to be careful on the deck, because of the “hatches,” which are holes placed around a sailboat at random to increase the insurance rates.
Dave Barry
What did I want with prestige? The British Open paid the winner $600 in American money. A man would have to be two hundred years old at that rate to retire from golf.
Sam Snead
The rate of change and innovation occurring across the entire spectrum of society demands that a company like XL utilize the highest level of analytics and information to solve problems for our clients.
Mike McGavick
Producing satire is kind of hopeless because of the literacy rate of the American public.
Frank Zappa
On a scale of one to 10, I’d rate my body confidence as a good seven. Everyone has their hang-ups, but I see my body as a training tool and I feel good about it.
Jessica Ennis
I really do believe most people understand raising tax rates is bad for the economy, it costs jobs. It actually in the long term undermines revenue.
Tom Cole
Many analysts now regard modest, zero, or negative growth in our rate of energy use as a realistic long-term goal.
Amory Lovins
We’re focused on doing the things that make the economy perform well, and as you do that, reduce deficits, for one, very important; secondly, keep growth rates high, very important.
John W. Snow
If you look at sentencing in America, African-Americans and Latinos get sentenced for the same crimes at very different rates.
Tim Kaine
In restaurants across America we see Latino workers in the kitchen who are being paid substandard wages. The saddest thing to me is that if we think about these workers, these are the people with the least access to good food. Yet they’re often suffering from the highest rates of obesity and diet-related illnesses.
Bryant Terry
a good part of the trick to being a first-rate scientist is in asking the right questions or asking them in ways that make it possible to find answers.
Anne Roe
I’m not advocating spending less on the elderly, but I am strongly advocating spending more on kids while also putting the country on a sound, long-term fiscal trajectory. To do that, we have to reduce the rate of growth of entitlement-related expenditures and add more revenues.
John Delaney
Right now the long-term investors are telling us that they’re not as concerned about inflation and so we’re seeing these rates now move into the marketplace and out to the street – rates that individuals can get.
Franklin Raines
A hundred years ago Hester Prynne of The Scarlet Letter was given an A for adultery; today she would rate no better than a C-plus.
Peter De Vries
The big lie out there, the big lie that the Republicans propagate day after day, is that cutting marginal rates for those at the top is going to create jobs. It’s simply not true.
Eliot Spitzer
Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
Judy Garland
For the first rate poet, nothing short of a Queen or a Chimera is adequate for the powers of his praise.
Wyndham Lewis
Yes, there’s a higher rate of people living below the poverty line who aren’t vaccinated. But it’s much rarer for that to be a product of choice than a product of circumstance.
Eula Biss
By keeping most tax rates at present levels, Obama and the Democrats will claim that they have championed tax cuts for the middle class.
John Podhoretz
If gun control bore any relation to homicide rates, Washington, DC would be the safest place in the country.
Mark Steyn
The next time a prostitute solicits your business, ask for the clergyman’s rate.
George Carlin
If a man means his writing seriously, he must mean to write well. But how can he write well until he learns to see what he has written badly. His progress toward good writing and his recognition of bad writing are bound to unfold at something like the same rate.
John Ciardi
In the course of my stay there, I also showed how one could analyse the experimental kinetic curves for the reaction of haemoglobin with carbon dioxide or oxygen by simulations in the computer, and so fit the rate constants.
Aaron Klug
My spinach feta wrap usage rate is off the charts.
Mina Kimes
I was chairman of the steering committee for agriculture when we set up the target of 4% growth rate. I had written that if you want to achieve 4% growth rate in agriculture, you should have 8% growth in animal husbandry and fisheries and 8% in horticulture.
M. S. Swaminathan
Horseracing already has the highest mortality rate of any sport in the world per capita to the people who do it. If you crash in Nascar you still have a roll bar, and a cage, and a lot of protection. It’s built to crash, but if you fall off a racehorse we all know what can happen, so it’s tremendously dangerous.
Gary Ross
When asked how to achieve success more rapidly, came the quick reply, ‘Double your failure rate’.
Thomas J. Watson
We’ve seen that in the past that where you’ve had uncertainty, and even where the Fed is raising rates, Treasurys rise as everybody heads for safety.
Gary Shilling
The most important initiative you could take to improve the world economy would be to stabilize the dollar-euro rate.
Robert Mundell
I almost always recommend investors get fully invested, since it’s better to put your money to work than to let it simply track the rate of inflation.
Louis Navellier
Foreign companies in the United States have a significantly higher unionization rate than other companies overall.
Sherrod Brown
Our nation was built and civilized by men and women who used guns in self-defense and in pursuit of peace. One wonders indeed, if the rising crime rate, isn’t due as much as anything to the criminal’s instinctive knowledge that the average victim no longer has means of self-protection.
Ronald Reagan
Democrats will play the old Washington game of calling reductions in the rate of growth of spending for any program a ‘cut’.
Bruce Bartlett
If the newspapers cut me up so much that I shall not venture before the world again, I have resolved to become a house painter; that would be as easy as anything else, and I should, at any rate, still be an artist!
Frederic Chopin
Tips-wise, I’d say drink as much water as possible, and I always think if you can do half an hour of exercise every day or, at least, get your heart rate up for half an hour every day, even if it’s a power walk, it’s good.
Tamzin Outhwaite
Putting, say, an 85 per cent income tax rate is unlikely to bring in much revenue.
Angus Deaton
At the rate we’re going, the 21st century looks pretty clear. It’s going to be pretty violent
Edward James Olmos
We’re busily wrecking the chances for future generations at a rapid rate of knots by not recognizing the damage we’re doing to the natural environment, bearing in mind that this is the only planet that we know has any life on it.
Prince Charles
Legislation to create a new 10 percent tax bracket, reduce the marriage penalty, cut the tax rate on dividends and capital gains, and increase the child tax credit have been essential elements in this economic expansion.
Roger Wicker
It is simply a fact that the birth rate of our illegal immigrants exceeds that of our legal residents.
John Linder
If we continue to print new paychecks at the rate we’ve been adding them, that mitigates a lot of the damage of higher gasoline prices.
Jerry A. Webman
We earned our dollars in a hard way;, nobody gave us a feast or gave it on a plate. We worked hard and we have innovated; we have made things in a better way at a cheaper rate and gave it to the people of India.
Kallam Anji Reddy
The earth is warming at an alarming rate, we are running out of fossil fuels, and it is long past time for us to take action to correct these problems.
William J. Clinton
It is of first-rate importance to notice from the start that stupidity is not the same thing, or the same sort of thing, as ignorance. There is no incompatibility between being well-informed and being silly, and a person who has a good nose for arguments or jokes may have a bad head for facts.
Gilbert Ryle
Success does not implant bad characteristics in people. It merely steps up the growth rate of the bad characteristics they already had.
Margaret Halsey
One of the difficult things in a high-growth company is that, even with the best intentions, the company moves so fast, and growth happens so regularly. When you move at that rate, you have to be willing to change, and you have to be willing to take advice.
Adam Neumann
It has been convincingly demonstrated that countries where there are high rates of poverty, or high rates of economic inequality, are the countries with the highest rates of religious beliefs.
Richard Dawkins
Leadership is the art of disappointing people at a rate they can stand.
John Ortberg
In the West, that’s what’s happening. The birth rate has been dropping steadily and still is. But there is still a vast amount of the world where that’s not the case. And that is where the big population growth is taking place.
David Attenborough
In most industries, technological change is happening at a rapid rate.
Ken Moelis
I could not help reflecting that the bullet which had struck the chestnut [horse] had certainly passed within a foot of my head. So at any rate I had been ‘under fire.’ That was something.
Winston Churchill
The Window is not without a certain visual spell that makes it a first-rate artistic achievement.
Andrew Sarris
Perhaps the country’s most pressing problem is its high uninsured rate. Every other country as wealthy as the United States has figured out how to cover its entire population, generally at a much lower cost, too.
Annie Lowrey
There are always going to be people who are against you or don’t rate you.
Jack Grealish
The climate, the economic situation, rising birth rates; none of these things give me a lot of hope or reason to be optimistic.
David Attenborough
I think Messi is an absolute giant in the game. Not so much because of his dribbles and actions. That’s why most people rate him. But I think, differently from others, that he is phenomenal in his teamplay and combination play.
Robin Van Persie
Even if I was running an idli shop for a living, I know that my idlis will taste good because that’s how highly I rate my work ethic.
Vijay Antony
Juice fasting destroys your metabolic rate. I see a lot of women who are like, ‘Oh, I lost seven pounds and then I gained 10.’ That’s not what detoxification is about.
Tracy Anderson
Skyrocketing insurance premiums are debilitating our Nation’s health care delivery system and liability insurers are either leaving the market or raising rates to excessive levels.
Jim Ryun
Studies show that people who abuse animals are far more likely to engage in interpersonal violence. Violent crime rates tend to be higher in areas where slaughterhouses are related, even when controlling for other variables.
Jonathan Balcombe
One of the best known, and one of the least intelligible, facts of literary history is the lateness, in Western European Literature at any rate, of prose fiction, and the comparative absence, in the two great classical languages, of what we call by that name.
George Saintsbury
What is different between national inequality and global inequality is you have another element there that is sometimes forgotten: what matters for global inequality is relative growth rates between poor and rich countries.
Branko Milanovic
You cannot be really first-rate at your work if your work is all you are.
Anna Quindlen
So, if falling crime rates coincide with the rise of violent video games and increasing violence on TV and at the cinema, should we conclude that media violence is causing the drop in crime rates?
Hugh Mackay
If you go to the FDA with a drug that’s only meant to treat 50 people, and it’s a 95 percent cure rate, you’ll get your drug approved.
Leroy Hood
There are a lot of studies that suggest a higher rate of creativity in bipolars than the general population.
Kay Redfield Jamison
Whatever may be the sociological value of the legal fiction that ‘all men are born free and equal,’ there can be no doubt that…in its biological application, at any rate, this statement is one of the most stupendous falsehoods ever uttered by man through his misbegotten gift of articulate speech.
Earnest Hooton
High interest rates focus on the revenue of a parasitic class.Historically the financial system has been structured in favour of moneyed interests, that is, creditors.
Linda McQuaig
How long can interest rates stay negative? Think about this. Not only are you lending your money to governments, but you’re paying them interest for the privilege of doing so.
Mohamed El-Erian
Going back to California is not like going back to Vermont, or Chicago; Vermont and Chicago are relative constants, against which one measures one’s own change. All that is constant about the California of my childhood is the rate at which it disappears.
Joan Didion
There are a lot of stats and a strong correlation between dropout rates and crime as well as poverty.
Cedric Richmond
When we deal in generalities, we shall never succeed. When we deal in specifics, we shall rarely have a failure. When performance is measured, performance improves. When performance is measured and reported, the rate of performance accelerates.
Thomas S. Monson
the whole flavor and quality of the American representative government turns to ashes on the tongue, if one regards that government as simply an inferior and rather second-rate sort of corporation.
Margaret Halsey
I consider any gun that can chamber a round and send a projectile down its barrel at a high rate of speed into my body – causing me injury or death – to be an assault weapon.
Henry Rollins
The next time you’re looking at a charity, don’t ask about the rate of their overhead. Ask about the scale of their dreams.
Dan Pallotta
I drink tea pretty much continuously at a rate of around 1 imperial pint/hour, which sort of enforces screen/keyboard breaks.
Charles Stross
With the emergence of civilization, the rate of change shifted from hundreds of thousands of years to millennia. With the emergence of science as a way of knowing the universe, the rate of change shifted to centuries.
William Irwin Thompson
In the 20 years before Greece end up with the Euro, efforts to improve competitiveness through exchange rate and adjustments resulted only in temporary gains of competitiveness.
Lucas Papademos
Modern love is the enterprise that everyone wants to be a part of, yet there’s a fifty percent divorce rate in round one and a sixty-five percent divorce rate in round two.
Esther Perel
The bulk of my fans are my age, and I’m aging at the same rate they are. That makes me relevant. They like hearing what I have to say. I work hard at it, but it’s addicting, really.
Ron White
You can’t have 23 million people struggling to get a job. You can’t have an economy that over the last three years keeps slowing down its growth rate. You can’t have kids coming out of college, half of them can’t find a job today, or a job that’s commensurate with their college degree. We have to get our economy going.
Mitt Romney
Eating wheat, like ice climbing, mountain boarding, and bungee jumping, is an extreme sport. It is the only common food that carries its own long-term mortality rate.
William Davis
I hope that more Canadians will become interested in in how the inflation rate target affects our purchasing power, our standard of living and therefore our life.
Maxime Bernier
The more perfect music we have, the more attractive the peculiarities and anomalies of human performance become. Perfection is a second rate idea.
T Bone Burnett
If you fail to pay your minimums for any debt on time, your credit score will take a major hit and you run the risk of seeing the interest rate on all of your cards go up. An easy way to remind yourself to pay, is to sign up to receive your statements via e-mail.
Alexa Von Tobel
Don’t be afraid to fail. Get out there and experiment and learn and fail and get a rate based on the experiences you have. Go for it and when you go for it you’ll learn what you’re capable of, what the potential is, where the opportunities are, but you can’t be afraid to fail because that’s when you learn.
Michael Dell
In China, it was always said that a double-digit rate of growth would be dangerous. Now, the country has a growth rate of 6.9 percent and suddenly that is supposed to be a catastrophe for the global economy.
Wolfgang Schauble
With an estimated population of nine billion people by 2050, we cannot continue to consume resources at the same rate and maintain our quality of life.
David Suzuki
We also need to reduce corporate tax rates. This applies to small, medium and large businesses. At 35 percent, we have the second highest corporate rates in the world. It restricts the growth of small enterprises that need to plow capital back into their businesses and forces companies and jobs to move overseas.
Meg Whitman
Give me a house furnished with books rather than furniture! Both, if you can, but books at any rate!
Horace Mann
The latest scientific assessment has almost doubled the predicted rate of warming if no changes are made.
Donella Meadows
I am sorry my life is so marred and maimed by extravagance. But I cannot live otherwise. I, at any rate, pay the penalty of suffering.
Oscar Wilde
we often observe that there is abundance of capital to be had at low rates of interest, while there are also large numbers of artisans starving for want of employment.
William Stanley Jevons
Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure.
Thomas Watson, Jr.
I exercise in the gym about three times a week. I vary the workout every time, but I’ll always do some type of circuit work with weights. It gets my heart rate up without putting too much stress on my knees, which for some reason seem to be older than the rest of my body.
Edwin Catmull
Klopp is a fantastic guy. I rate him as an extremely professional coach, perfectionist, and a winning mentality.
Roberto Firmino
I know I have a first-rate mind, but that`s no source of pride to me. Intelligent people are a dime a dozen. But I am proud of having character.
Dwight L. Moody
The difficulty for Mr. Obama will be when the public sees where his decisions lead – higher inflation, higher interest rates, higher taxes, sluggish growth, and a jobless recovery.
Karl Rove
As soon, however, as capitalist competition has definitively established the equal rate of profit, that rate becomes the starting point for the calculations of the capitalists in the investment of capital in newly-created branches of production.
Rudolf Hilferding
If I had high-ticker 10 percent financing, which would probably be the market rate, I would have to dump stuff. The interest payments would be killing me.
Barry Sternlicht
Once the dollar begins to collapse beneath the weight of all this new deficit spending, accumulation of contingency liabilities and the socialization of our economy, commodity prices and interest rates will head skyward.
Peter Schiff
The aging and declining population will have far-reaching impacts. Declining fertility rates will possibly increase immigration. The structure of family and society will inevitably change.
Toshihiko Fukui
You cannot be both fashionable and first-rate
Logan Pearsall Smith
Anyone who wants to look at sunlight naturally wipes his eye clear first, in order to make, at any rate, some approximation to the purity of that on which he looks; and a person wishing to see a city or country goes to the place in order to do so.
We think if the economy remains weak that we could see mortgage rates trail down and we think that we could see rates below seven percent into early next year.
Franklin Raines
At some point the Japanese, Chinese and Saudi buyers of US and European Government bonds will see just what miserable value they offer. Then governments may have to stop all the runaway spending and bailouts and even put up interest rates.
Luke Johnson
Nobody can predict interest rates, the future direction of the economy or the stock market. Dismiss all such forecasts and concentrate on what’s actually happening to the companies in which you’ve invested
Peter Lynch
Graham Wallas has reminded us that writing as compared with speaking involves an impression at the second remove and reading an impression at the third remove. The voice of a second-rate person is more impressive than the published opinion of superior ability.
Harold Innis
The government is a heartbeat away from nationalizing health care based on deliberate misinformation about the nation’s uninsured and despite the 100 percent failure rate of such fantastic reforms elsewhere on the globe.
David Limbaugh
Of course, a positive growth rate might be taken as evidence that a population is below its optimum.
Garrett Hardin
Well, my dad did a lot of Kung Fu when I was growing up, so he taught me a lot about mental toughness. Ways to slow your heart rate down, slow your breathing down to take control of your body so you can push yourself to the next limit.
Jamal Murray
Buddha and Christ were second-rate heroes. The greatest men that ever live pass away unknown. They put forth no claims for themselves, establish no schools or systems in their name. They never create any stir but just melt down in love.
Swami Vivekananda
Whites have more than eleven times the net worth or wealth of African Americans. They make greater salaries. Our unemployment rate is twice theirs. You look at the prison system and who that’s chewing up.
Randall Robinson
