The Safe Drinking Water Act was passed in 1974 after tests discovered carcinogens, lead and dangerous bacteria flowing from faucets in New Orleans, Pittsburgh and Boston and elsewhere.
Charles Duhigg
In learning and argumentation, the quality brain is similar to a facility of maximum security. What passes the logic test, free of fallacy and pretense, then must pass the test of biblical accuracy in order to proceed as an adopted, reliable truth.
Criss Jami
Test of Metal: Will of Iron, Nerves of Steel, Heart of Gold, Balls of Brass.
George Carlin
The great test of life is … not to endure storms, but to choose the right while they rage.
Henry B. Eyring
I’m not saying we purposely introduced bugs or anything, but this is kind of a natural result of any complexities of software… that you can’t fully test it.
Will Wright
Life is there ahead of you and either one tests oneself in its challenges or huddles in the valleys of a dreamless day-to-day existence whose only purpose is the preservation of a illusory security and safety. The latter is what the vast majority of people choose to do, fearing the adventure into the known.
Saul Alinsky
The only true test of friendship is the time your friend spends on you.
John Marsden
There are so many people who come to me to be an actor, but I select only those people who I feel can fit my script. If they do, I immediately say yes. I don’t do screen tests. I talk to them and see how their mind functions. I read their mind and cast them.
Dev Anand
Possession of the pure synthetic specimens of the anthocyanidins and chief anthocyanins enabled my wife and me to devise quick tests for these colouring matters which can be used with the material from a few flower petals.
Robert Robinson
Funky like your grandpa’s drawers, don’t test me
We in like that, you’re dead like Presley
You cannot pray for an A on a test and study for a B. You cannot pray for a celestial marriage and live a telestial life. You cannot pray for something and act less.
Tad R. Callister
Barack Obama’s mother-in-law might be moving into the White House with him. Joe Biden was right. Hostile forces will test him in the first few months.
Jay Leno
The fact that we don’t keep repeating tests in the same arena is not because the probability of the hypothesis showing its falsity in other arenas goes up after it has passed tests in one arena.
Robert Nozick
Religious faith to W. H. Bragg was the willingness to stake his all on the hypothesis that Christ was right, and test it by a lifetime’s experiment in charity.
Guglielmo Marconi
The hallmark of excellence, the test of greatness, is consistency.
Jim Tressel
Survey and test a prospective action before undertaking it. Before you proceed, step back and look at the big picture, lest you act rashly on raw impulse.
Test yourself on mankind. It is something that makes the doubter doubt, the believer believe.
Franz Kafka
To play 100 Tests is a lot of miles in the legs and just thinking about that many as a fast bowler hurts my back!
Jofra Archer
We are the first to ever publicly advertise we dont test on animals.
John Paul DeJoria
The true test of anyone’s worth as a living creature is how much he can utilize what he has.
Anton Szandor LaVey
In science fiction, you can also test out your own realities.
Theodore Sturgeon
Character is both developed and revealed by tests, and all of life is a test.
Rick Warren
Ofttimes the test of courage becomes rather to live than to die.
Vittorio Alfieri
One good test of whether an economy is humanistic or not is the plausibility of earning the ability to drop out of it for a while without incident or insult.
Jaron Lanier
If you want to know whether you are destined to be a success or a failure in life, you can easily find out. The test is simple and it is infallible: Are you able to save money? If not, drop out. You will lose. You may think not, but you will lose as sure as you live. The seed of success is not in you.
James J. Hill
The test of a government is not how popular it is with the powerful and privileged few but how honestly and fairly it deals with the many who must depend on it.
Jimmy Carter
Students don’t know who Mark Twain was because he wasn’t on the test.
Kinky Friedman
We all have life-defining moments. They are like open-book tests, but we don’t know we have been examined until it is over.
John Bevere
It may be difficult to understand why a test comes our way, but we must never forget that the test is accomplishing refining and purification.
Billy Graham
Being unemployed is the true test of who you really are.
Ernie J Zelinski
Canelo wants to test himself and see if he is among the elite fighters. This is a golden opportunity for me, so I’m very, very happy.
Shane Mosley
Most national advertising is done without justification. It is merely presumed to pay. A little test might show a way to multiply returns
Claude C. Hopkins
My test for writing is always, is this fun or does it feel like a job? Is it moving me? Or am I just fulfilling my own expectations – or even worse, somebody else’s?
Jonathan Safran Foer
How do you keep the natives off the booze long enough to pass the test?
Prince Philip
There are some fires you can’t get out of- you’ve got to go through the fire – you’ve got to go through the flood – you’ve got to go through the test – you’ve got to go through the struggle that you might decrease and he might increase.
T. D. Jakes
Whoever said there’s no such thing as a stupid question never looked carefully at a standardized test.
Alfie Kohn
Its easier to get a divorce than pass the driving test. Now its just a basic form-filling exercise.
Paul Coleridge
As a Test cricketer you expect that at times you’re going to be heckled, and you must have a thick skin.
Brett Lee
Technique is the test of sincerity. If a thing isn’t worth getting the technique to say, it is of inferior value.
Ezra Pound
Test cricket is bloody hard work, especially when you’ve got Sachin batting with what looks like a three metre wide bat.
Michael Hussey
Think about being a teenager and feeling like school is just about taking tests you may or may not be interested in, after which someone will judge whether or not you’re smart. No one’s going to be inspired by that.
Carol S. Dweck
No one tests the depth of a river with both feet.
Yes, religion and politics do mix. America is a nation based on biblical principles. Christian values dominate our government. The test of those values is the Bible. Politicians who do not use the bible to guide their public and private lives do not belong in office.
Beverly LaHaye
The key test for an acronym is to ask whether it helps or hurts communication.
Elon Musk
The only test of a soul’s salvation is its inward happiness.
Lin Yutang
It could be seasonal allergies, it could be pneumonia, it could be the common cold, it could be flu. And so it takes tests and lab work and resources and scans to parse out if this is COVID-19 or if this is something else.
Myron Rolle
Google is famous for making the tiniest changes to pixel locations based on the data it accrues through its tests. Google will always choose a spartan webpage that converts over a beautiful page that doesn’t have the data to back it up.
Ben Parr
How you ever gonna know if you’re the best? How you ever gonna know what you believe in, if you don’t put it to the test?
Garth Brooks
For the first time ever, women are scoring higher than men on IQ tests. Scientists say it has something to do with breast implants — not that it makes the women smarter, it just makes the men dumber.
Jay Leno
Genes work with probabilities; they don’t work with certainties. So most things that you’re looking at with these genetic tests, it’s not like you’re condemned to automatically get the disease or the syndrome. There’s a lot of factors in play there.
Sam Kean
Writers of either gender ought to be able to do the opposite sex-that’s one basic test of competence, after all.
Julian Barnes
The test of civilization is the estimate of woman.
George William Curtis
There are good one-day players, there are good Test players and vice versa
Trevor Bailey
Calamity is the test of integrity.
Samuel Richardson
Knowledge and devotion, to be true, have to stand the test of renunciation of the fruits of action.
Mahatma Gandhi
I’m Michael Schumacher. I don’t need to test my driving ability.
Michael Schumacher
The true test of all the arts is not solely whether the production is a true copy of nature, but whether it answers the end of art, which is to produce a pleasing effect upon the mind.
Joshua Reynolds
A design remedy that prevents bugs is always preferable to a test method that discovers them.
Boris Beizer
Morale in an organization does not mean that “people get along together”; the test is performance not conformance.
Peter Drucker
There never comes a point where a theory can be said to be true. The most that one can claim for any theory is that it has shared the successes of all its rivals and that it has passed at least one test which they have failed.
A.J. Ayer
The test of friendship is assistance in adversity, and that, too, unconditional assistance.
Mahatma Gandhi
Federal lawmakers need to change the rules so that vehicles converted to use new fuels can be put on the road; the only restriction should be that they pass the same standard state tests that all other cars do.
Robert Zubrin
There is arguably something wrong with a method of persuasion that cannot pass the test of publicity.
Randal Marlin
The whole concept of higher education is negated unless the sole criterion used to determine if students qualify is the grades they score on standardized tests. Education is purely an issue of learning – we can no longer afford to have it polluted by damn politics. Leave pollution up to the politicians
Ray Bradbury
Im really bad at tests of any kind, so Im bad at auditions. I consider myself educated most of the time, but when Im under the gun, I just fail.
Brady Corbet
Every man must have freedom, must have the scope to form, test, and act upon his own choices, for any sort of development of his own personality to take place. He must, in short, be free in order that he may be fully human.
Murray Rothbard
I think the best friendships are those that can stand the test of time, where the friendship is based more on who you are than on what you do or what you have.
Steve Pavlina
I didn’t quit football because I failed a drug test, I failed a test because I was ready to quite football.
Tom Arnold
No matter how sorted you think you are, you will always be surrounded by people who are lost and angry. They will test you time and time again.
Jan Hellriegel
The US Army has announced that although it is true they performed mind-destroying drug tests on hundreds of soldiers in the 1960s, none of the victims have been promoted beyond the rank of lieutenant colonel.
George Carlin
Usually, if I think something is really funny, I’m not gonna test it. I’ll just test it when I’m onstage.
Donald Glover
Power is a test – the test – of character.
Evalyn Walsh McLean
In our time, the symbol of state intrusion into the private life is the mandatory urine test.
Christopher Hitchens
The redeeming feature of war is that it puts a nation to the test. As exposure to the atmosphere reduces all mummies to instant dissolution, so war passes supreme judgment upon social systems that have outlived their vitality.
Karl Marx
There is no better test of a man’s work than time, which also reveals the thoughts which lay hidden in his breast.
Simonides of Ceos
I cannot believe they haven’t yet come up with a better screening process than the mammogram. If a man had to put his special parts inside a clamp to test him for anything, I think they would come up with a new plan before the doctor finished saying, “Put that thing there so I can crush it.
Ellen DeGeneres
When was the last time you used the words ‘teach me’? Maybe not since you started first grade? Here’s an irony about school: The daily grind of tests, homework, and pressures sometimes blunts rather than stimulates a thirst for knowledge.
Jerry Spinelli
You’ve got to realize that the world’s a test,
You can only do your best and let Him do the rest.
You’ve got your life, and got your health,
So quit procrastinating and push it yourself.
Cee Lo Green
[Math is] not at all like science. There’s no experiment I can do with test tubes and equipment and whatnot that will tell me the truth about a figment of my imagination. The only way to get at the truth about our imaginations is to use our imaginations.
Paul Lockhart
Feeling pummeled by the outside pounding of tests and standards, a teacher can easily hide and simply turn to the immediacy of the classroom. It is not surprising that many teachers burrow in their rooms with all that they know about their students. There is no place to take the information.
Heidi Hayes Jacobs
Maybe the raising of millions of dollars of funds for charitable projects has become ‘a racket’, and the longer they remain in the test-tube stage of development, the longer patronage and job payrollers remain in their soft berths.
Roland V. Libonati
Anybody can work when everything goes smoothly, when there is nothing to trouble him; but a man must be made of the right kind of stuff who can rise above the things which harass and handicap the weak, and do his work in spite of them. Indeed, this is the test of greatness.
Orison Swett Marden
August in sub-Saharan Los Angeles is one of the great and awful tests of one’s endurance, sanity and stamina.
Henry Rollins
Keep a good attitude and do the right thing even when it’s hard. When you do that you are passing the test. And God promises you your marked moments are on their way.
Joel Osteen
Analysis is carried into everything. Even Deity is subjected to chemical tests.
James Russell Lowell
I love cities, and I love city governments in particular. But in politics it would have taken me 8 years from implementing a policy before I would get to see the feedback. With programming I could model the same policies and see the impact immediately. Technology is a far more efficient way to test.
Jack Dorsey
I don’t break the rules. I merely test their elasticity.
Bill Veeck
I think we are going to see exciting cricket all the way. We are watching the two best teams in the world-and I think England will eventually go on to pip Australia by a single Test
Ian Botham
Someone has written, Love is a verb. It requires doing -not just saying and thinking. The test is in what one does, how one acts, for love is conveyed in word and deed.
David B. Haight
Proportion and propriety are among the best secrets of domestic wisdom; and there is no surer test of integrity than a well-proportioned expenditure.
Hannah More
Tough times test your valor, persistence and ability to make decisions. They force you to fight for your dreams.
Paulo Coelho
The evolutionary explanation for origins, although impossible either to prove or to test scientifically, is nevertheless defended by its proponents on the basis that it is the only explanation which is naturalistic, not involving the ‘supernatural’ element of a divine Creator.
Henry M. Morris
You can’t test courage cautiously.
Annie Dillard
How can you fail a test you aren’t allowed to prepare for?
Veronica Roth
I was a bookworm who aced every test – until third grade, when my teacher handed out a pop quiz about Jesus and the Apostles.
Caroline Leavitt
I love the game. I think it’s a great game because you find out a lot about yourself. You test your mettle every week. There’s no grey area, there’s instant gratification and there are no quarterly reports. We’re not just doing a little bit better. You know every Sunday what happened.
Bill Parcells
Pleasure is Nature’s test, her sign of approval. When man is happy, he is in harmony with himself and his environment.
Oscar Wilde
The word “essay” means to try out, test, probe. In the essay style, successive clauses and sentences are not produced by an overarching logic, but by association; the impression that prose gives is that it can go anywhere in a manner wholly unpredictable.
Stanley Fish
Walls aren’t put in our life to stop us, they are there to test how much we really want somthing.
Randy Pausch
I have already demonstrated, by crucial tests, the practicability of signaling by my system from one to any other point of the globe, no matter how remote, and I shall soon convert the disbelievers.
Nikola Tesla
When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change.
Paulo Coelho
Perhaps the best test of a man’s intelligence is his capacity for making a summary.
Lytton Strachey
Bob Dole revealed he is one of the test subjects for Viagra. He said on Larry King, ‘I wish I had bought stock in it.’ Only a Republican would think the best part of Viagra is the fact that you could make money off of it.
Jay Leno
I say that trials and tests locate a person. In other words they determine where you are spiritually. They reveal the true condition of your heart. How you react under pressure is how the real you reacts.
John Bevere
You put me in charge of Medicaid, the first thing I’d do is get [female recipients] Norplant, birth-control implants, or tubal ligations. Then, we’ll test recipients for drugs and alcohol, and if you want to [reproduce] or use drugs or alcohol, then get a job.
Russell Pearce
If you want to keep a friend, never test him.
John Steinbeck
The struggle now going on for the world will never be decided by bombs or rockets, by armies or military might. The real crisis we face today is a spiritual one; at root, it is a test of moral will and faith.
Ronald Reagan
I considered the prevention of war as the test of our security policy; in addition to being able to rapidly and forcefully end any war forced upon us.
Yitzhak Rabin
It’s a strange atmosphere always over there, it is darker and less glamorous, and you don’t feel as high. It is a different kind of test – can you raise your level in a less exciting environment and perhaps still a very difficult one?
Arsene Wenger
During the time I have had WACs under my command, they have met every test and task assigned to them…their contributions in efficiency, skill, spirit, and determination are immeasurable.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
All religion is founded on prayer, and in prayer it has its test and measure.
Peter Forsyth
Of the total creative effort represented in a finished work, 75 percent or more of a writer’s labor goes into designing the story designing story tests the maturity and insight of the writer, his knowledge of society, nature, and the human heart.В  Story demands both vivid imagination and powerful analytic thought.
Robert McKee
As soon as we associate reading with a test, we’ve missed the point.
Seth Godin
I don’t think I’d rock a moustache. I don’t mind growing a beard. I think it’s just a guy thing. We like to nurture a beard, see what we can grow and sort of test our own patience with how long we can let it grow out. However, I’m not really as keen on moustaches as I am on beards.
James Magnussen
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
We’re looking at Earth science, observing our planet. Also space science, looking at the ozone in the atmosphere around our Earth. Also looking at life science. And on a human level, using ourselves as test subjects.
Laurel Clark
The interesting thing is always to see if you can find a fact that will change your mind about something, to test and see if you can.
Diane Sawyer
Mankind’s real moral test, a test so radical and so deep that it escapes our gaze, is probably the one of its relations with those that are the most at its mercy; the Animals.
Milan Kundera
For the decisions of our will are often so directly opposed to the decisions of our emotions, that, if we are in the habit of considering our emotions as the test, we shall be very apt to feel like hypocrites in declaring those things to be real which our will alone has decided.
Hannah Whitall Smith
It really tests you as a person as far as whether you can handle failure.
Jason Bay
Readers pass vocaulary tests. Nonreaders struggle.
Stephen D. Krashen
I recall hearing one of my professors in seminary say that one of the best tests of a person’s theology was the effect it has on one’s prayers.
John Piper
The moral test of a society is how that society treats those who are in the dawn of life: the children; … the elderly.
Hubert H. Humphrey
The true test of one’s commitment to liberty and private property rights doesn’t come when we permit people to be free to do those voluntary things with which we agree. The true test comes when we permit people to be free to do those voluntary things with which we disagree.
Walter E. Williams
Fatal illness has always been viewed as a test of moral character, but in the nineteenth century there is a great reluctance to let anybody flunk the test.
Susan Sontag
[America] doesn’t have an emphasis anymore on original discovery. Everything is based on teaching and learning for tests. Memorizing what you are taught, not on actually making discoveries. People are being treated as herded cattle instead of as human beings capable of making original, creative discoveries.
Kesha Rogers
I require every Taipei student to swim; if they can’t pass the test they won’t graduate. Why do I do that? Because I think that is very, very important integral part of their education.
Ma Ying-jeou
Maybe being home schooled, Carter didn’t realize that “test” is normally a bad thing.
Rick Riordan
I’m against the partial-birth abortion, but you’ve got to have an exception for the life of the mother and the health of the mother under the strictest test of bodily injury to the mother.
John F. Kerry
Good teachers are an endangered species because they’re giving up because of the tests and everything.
Rafe Esquith
The irony is that kids are treated equally when it comes to tests and standards and expectations but not treated equally when providing funds to meet those standards and expectations.
Pete Gallego
The more you study the course, the more you appreciate what a great test it is.
Phil Mickelson
We see this as a test of their ability to face reality.
Brian Johnson
To test a perfect theory with imperfect instruments did not impress the Greek philosophers as a valid way to gain knowledge.
Isaac Asimov
If diffraction or interference phenomena were to be sought it was therefore necessary, in accordance with the basic principles of wave theory, to select for the test arrangement far smaller decisive dimensions than those employed in corresponding tests with visible light.
Max von Laue
Friendship is something that gets harder to understand, every damn year of my life.Friendship is like a kind of algebra test that nobody passes. In my worst moods, I think the best you can say is that a friend is anyone you don’t despise.
Gregory David Roberts
People don’t remember me. Really. It’s not a paranoid thing; I just have this habit of slipping through memories. It doesn’t bother me all that much, except I guess that’s a lie; it does. For some reason, I test very high on forgettability.
William Goldman
The true test of any scholar’s work is not what his contemporaries say, but what happens to his work in the next 25 or 50 years.
Milton Friedman
I can’t answer either question. But the look she gives me reminds me of the look in the attack dog’s eyes in the aptitude test – a vicious, predatory stare. She wants to rip me to pieces. I can’t lie down in submission now. I have become an attack dog too.
Veronica Roth
The test of character is having the ability to meet challenges.
Walter Annenberg
Everybody I know fails the acid test of friendship.
Bill Watterson
Bishops may often feel but cannot express the sting and throb of submitting themselves to Roman commands because the latter are always presented as tests of their loyalty to the Pope and of their absolute acceptance of his teaching authority, or Magisterium.
Eugene Kennedy
Pakistan has made no mention of ending our tests. We have a missile program, and it is in the national interest whatever we want to do.
Ayub Khan
Everything’s the same; I’m living with cancer and it’s not going to stop me. But until you really test yourself and challenge yourself, I don’t think you quite know.
Robin Roberts
From Santi’s earthly tomb with demon’s hole, ‘Cross Rome the mystic elements unfold. The path of light is laid, the sacred test, Let angels guide you on your lofty quest.
Dan Brown
The greatest test of courage on earth is to bear defeat without losing heart.
Robert Green Ingersoll
No man is truly great who is great only in his lifetime. The test of greatness is the page of history.
William Hazlitt
I believe that the first test of a great man is his humility. I don’t mean by humility, doubt of his power. But really great men have a curious feeling that the greatness is not of them, but through them. And they see something divine in every other man and are endlessly, foolishly, incredibly merciful.
John Ruskin
It is an insult to our citizens to question whether they are rational beings or not, and blasphemy against religion to suppose it cannot stand the test of truth and reason.
Thomas Jefferson
Some of the problem with IQ tests stems from the inescapable reality that human intelligence is staggeringly complex and multifaceted.
David Olusoga
The constant recollection of death is the test of human conduct.
Marcus Aurelius
We knew before we came (to earth) that there would be many adverse circumstances to test us: accidents, sickness, and disease to prove us; temptations and distractions to try us; disappointments, discouragements, reverses, failures and all kinds of situations to determine our character.
Robert E. Wells
The whole point of building theoretical systems is to explain what humans know by pre-theoretical experience. That is the starting point for any philosophy. That is the data it seeks to explain. If it fails to explain the data of experience, then it has failed the test. It has been falsified.
Nancy Pearcey
In contrast with the law, which imposed giving as a divine requirement, Christian giving is voluntary, and a test of sincerity and love.
C. I. Scofield
The final test of Afro-American studies will be the extent to which they rid the minds of whites and blacks alike of false learning, and the extent to which they promote for blacks and whites alike a completely rewarding participation in American life.
Jay Saunders Redding
The practical effect of a belief is the real test of its soundness. Where we find a heroic life appearing as the uniform fruit of a particular mode of opinion, it is childish to argue in the face of fact that the result ought to have been different.
James Anthony Froude
The animals are right here, right in front of us. And how we treat these companions is a test.
Linda Blair
The best intelligence test is what we do with our leisure.
Laurence J. Peter
Did you ever hear one of those corny, positive messages on someone’s answering machine? ‘Hi, it’s a great day and I’m out enjoying it right now. I hope you are too. The thought for the day is share the love.’ Beep. ‘Uh, yeah, this is the VD clinic. Speaking of being positive, your test is back. Stop sharing the love.’
Andy Rooney
The test of a man is: does he bear apples? Does he bear fruit?
Abraham Maslow
What really matters when facing a challenge? What matters is learning. You want to test yourself, throw yourself into something outside your comfort zone and see what youre capable of. Your true goal is not to conquer fifty feet of inanimate rock, but to expand your abilities through learning.
Arno Hintjens
We found out that the young people who had a substantial number of lessons in the Resolving Conflict Creatively Curriculum … not only did better in terms of people skills, that they managed their emotions, they were less violent and more caring, but they actually did better on their academic achievement tests.
Linda Lantieri
Science is not an intelligence test. Intuition is important, knowing what kind of questions to ask. The other thing is a passion for getting to the core of the problem.
Torsten Wiesel
The only way to pass a test is to take the test
Marlo Morgan
I’m always giving myself the Alzheimer’s test. My shrink told me to do this. It takes one minute. You name every word that comes to mind that begins with the letter F.
Ray Romano
All physical and economic tests that may be devised are worthless if the immigrant, through racial or other inherently antipathetic conditions, cannot be more or less readily assimilated.
Boies Penrose
While life is meant to test, challenge, and strengthen us, if we are attempting to negotiate the twists and turns and ups and downs of mortality alone, we’re doing it all wrong. Mortality is a test, but it is an open book test. We have access not only to the divine text but to Him who authored it.
Sheri L. Dew
Certain types of films will never test well. My films never seem to test well.
Terry Zwigoff
Prediction can never be absolutely valid and therefore science can never prove some generalization or even test a single descriptive statement and in that way arrive at final truth.
Gregory Bateson
It is in time of peace that the value of life is fixed. The test of war reveals it.
Walter Lippmann
The litmus test of our love for God is our love of neighbor.
Brennan Manning
Today the real test of America’s power and wisdom is not our capacity to make war but our capacity to prevent it. Prevention must be our overriding objective. It can be done. Surrendering to the inevitability of combat only paves the way for its occurring.
Dale E. Turner
It has been said that the position of woman is the test of civilization, and that of our women was secure. In them was vested our standard of morals and the purity of our blood.
Charles Alexander Eastman
The only relevant test of the validity of a hypothesis is comparison of prediction with experience.
Milton Friedman
One of the litmus tests for judicial conservatism is the idea of judicial restraint – that courts should give substantial deference to the decisions of the political process. When Congress and the president enact a law, conservatives generally say, judges should avoid ‘legislating from the bench.’
Jeff Greenfield
According to recognized aero technical tests, the bumblebee cannot fly because of the shape and weight of his body in relation to the total wing area. The bumblebee doesn’t know this, so he goes ahead and flies anyway.
Igor Sikorsky
In California we froze property taxes, school size increased, test scores declined, and there was a massive middle-class white flight to private schools. We’re turning into Victorian England at a very rapid rate.
Robert Hass
The test of civilization is the estimate of woman. Among savages she is a slave. In the dark ages of Christianity she is a toy and a sentimental goddess. With increasing moral light, and greater liberty, and more universal justice, she begins to develop as an equal human being.
George William Curtis
When a book raises your spirit, and inspires you with noble and manly thoughts, seek for no other test of its excellence. It is good, and made by a good workman.
Jean de la Bruyere
Your test had cheese meteor questions?” – Bex to Liz.
Ally Carter
When you make comedy, you make it for the people and you try to have as many screenings and as many tests and you do focus groups and you read the cards and you try to give the people what they want in this comedy.
Chris Rock
Every man over 40 should have a PSA test each year.
Barry Bostwick
History is the only laboratory we have in which to test the consequences of thought.
Etienne Gilson
We went across the South on Super Tuesday without a single catcall or boo, without a single ugly sign. Not until we got to New York and the North did the litmus test of race and religion spout from the mouths of public officials.
Jesse Jackson
The secret of a leader lies in the tests he has faced over the whole course of his life and the habit of action he develops in meeting those tests.
Gail Sheehy
Anytime you test for a TV show, you have that bit of squeamishness entering into it because they lock you in for a number years.
Sam Huntington
There are moments, it would seem, that were created in cosmic theater where we are given strange and fantastic tests. In these times, we do not show who we are to God, for surely He must already know, but rather to ourselves.
Richard Paul Evans
You might be a redneck if you think the O.J. trial was the big Sunkist and Minutemaid taste test.
Jeff Foxworthy
They say the test of [literary power] is whether a man can write an inscription. I say, “Can he name a kitten?” And by this test I am condemned, for I cannot.
Samuel Butler
Can advertising foist an inferior product on the consumer? Bitter experience has taught me that it cannot. On those rare occasions when I have advertised products which consumer tests have found inferior to other products in the same field, the results have been disastrous.
David Ogilvy
Take up the Bible, compare the religion of the Latter-day Saints with it, and see if it will stand the test
Brigham Young
Measuring nuclear yield depends on multiple parameters – the location and number of instruments, the geology of the area, the location of the seismic station in relation to the test site.
Abdul Kalam
You can’t create a successful politics of support for public education on the basis of asking voters not to care about skills, and tests that measure skills, at all.
Nicholas Lemann
That is the dignity of America, the reason she exists, the condition of her survival, yes, the ultimate test of her greatness: to respect every human person, especially the weak and most defenseless ones, those as yet unborn.
Pope John Paul II
Obedience is the only reality. It is faith visible, faith acting, and faith manifest. It is the test of real discipleship among the Lord’s people.
J. C. Ryle
In the words of a very famous dead person, ‘A nation that does not know its history is doomed to do poorly on the Scholastic Aptitude Test.
Dave Barry
An all-rounder in Tests and limited-overs’ cricket is equally important.
Shikhar Dhawan
I go in for the eye test, and I don’t know about you, but I concentrate like crazy during the eye exam. You don’t want to get no ‘D’ on that thing and end up with these big thick Coke bottle glasses.
Brian Regan
I was never a prisoner of any theory. What guided me were reason and reality. The acid test I applied to every theory or scheme was: Would it work? The acid test is in performance, not promises. It is not from weakness that one commands respect. As long as the leaders take care of their people, they will obey the leaders.
Mr. Lee
Test of the poet is knowledge of love,
For Eros is older than Saturn or Jove;
Never was poet, of late or of yore,
Who was not tremulous with love-lore.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
No great question will ever be settled in dollars and cents. Great questions must be settled on moral grounds and the tests of what makes free men.
Herbert Hoover
If I were in charge I’d drug test all you sons of b****es, not just the athletes.
Bobby Knight
When I started my company, many people said I shouldn’t launch it as a retail concept because it was too big a risk. They told me to launch as a wholesaler to test the waters – because that was the traditional way.
Tory Burch
The test of a belief is not exclusively in the belief itself, but also in the intentions and actions of those who embrace it.
Bryant H. McGill
The same stimuli in the world can be inducing very different experiences internally and it’s probably based on a single change in a gene. What I am doing is pulling the gene forward and imaging and doing behavioural tests to understand what that difference is and how reality can be constructed so differently.
David Eagleman
Everything you want is cheap or free. If you went to a venture capitalist and said: “I need money to buy tools.” You flunked the IQ test, I mean every tool that you need is free!
Guy Kawasaki
Every perversion has survived many tests of its capabilities.
Mason Cooley
America you are beautiful . . . and blessed . . . . The ultimate test of your greatness is the way you treat every human being, but especially the weakest and most defenseless. If you want equal justice for all and true freedom and lasting peace, then America, defend life.
Pope John Paul II
We all were there for the readings, the screen tests, and we knew. We knew Dustin was the guy right away.
Buck Henry
And only the very courageous will be able to keep alive the spirit of individualism and dissent which gave birth to this nation, nourished it as an infant, and carried it through its severest tests upon the attainment of its maturity.
John F. Kennedy
To develop patience, you need someone who willfully hurts you. Such people give us real opportunities to practice tolerance. They test our inner strength in a way that even our guru cannot. Basically, patience protects us from being discouraged.
Dalai Lama
A test of what is real is that it is hard and rough. Joys are found in it, not pleasure. What is pleasant belongs to dreams.
Simone Weil
The basic test of freedom is perhaps less in what we are free to do than in what we are free not to do.
Eric Hoffer
Everything’s a conspiracy and everything’s not a conspiracy. You could look at this planet and go, “This is all a conspiracy. God made this to test us to see if we’ll use the nukes.” You can let your mind believe anything.
Harland Williams
Man’s earthly existence is but a test as to whether he will concentrate his efforts, his mind, his soul upon things which contribute to the comfort and gratification of his physical instincts and passions, or whether he will make as his life’s end and purpose the acquisition of spiritual qualities
David O. McKay
I think I am less self-assured when I write English than I would be if I were writing in my first language. I have to test each sentence over and over to be sure that it’s right, that I haven’t introduced some element that isn’t English.
Louis Begley
One of the most difficult tests for the creator: he must always remain unconscious, unaware of his best virtues, if he doesn’t want to rob them of their candor and innocence.
Rainer Maria Rilke
The test of our religion is whether it fits us to meet emergencies. A man has no more character than he can command in a time of crisis.
Ralph Washington Sockman
It is always wise, as it is also fair, to test a man by the standards of his own day, and not by those of another.
Odell Shepard
I am asking teachers to understand that we must make the education relevant for the children. If they’re only working for the tests or they’re only working to please us, they’re not going to be interested in school.
Rafe Esquith
My politics were pretty anarchistic until 1969 when the Montreal police went on strike. Within hours, mayhem and rioting broke out and the Mounties had to be called in to restore order. It instilled in me that one’s convictions can be subjected to empirical test.
Steven Pinker
My experience of test screenings is that you don’t know what kind of mood people are going to be in, and sometimes the studios accept what Joe Blo says – and this guy could just be a frustrated filmmaker, or not paying attention.
Antoine Fuqua
I think people should be given a test much like driver’s tests as to whether they’re capable of being parents!
Maurice Sendak
All over the world when you test men and women for facial cue recognition, women test… better. Its a negotiation tool.
Michael Gurian
I’m a risk-taker. I like to test myself.
Joanne Woodward
A man’s inner nature is revealed by what he praises-a man is self-judged by what he says of others. Thus a man is judged by his standards, by what he considers the best. And you can’t find a more crucial test. It reveals the soul.
Hugh Black
The test of good manners is to be able to put up pleasantly with bad ones.
Wendell Willkie
Prayer is the pulse of the renewed soul; and the constancy of its beat is the test and measure of the spiritual life.
Octavius Winslow
Some things are sent to test us. Clearly you must be good at problem solving if you are being set tough exams.
Jan Hellriegel
One must know how to conserve oneself- the best test of independence.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Perhaps the ultimate test of a leader is not what you are able to do in the here and now – but instead what continues to grow long after you’re gone
Tom Rath
Life itself is always a trial. In training, you must test and polish yourself in order to face the great challenges of life.
Morihei Ueshiba
Our Government is committed to supporting Canadian businesses as they grow, innovate and generate high-value jobs – in the West and across the country. The WINN Initiative assists western Canadian businesses in bringing innovative ideas from the test bench to the marketplace.
Michelle Rempel
To be at peace with self, to find company and nourishment in self-this would be the test of the free and productive psyche.
Marya Mannes
When I was in the Senate, I had a number of trade deals that came before me, and I held them all to the same test. Will they create jobs in America? Will they raise incomes in America? And are they good for our national security? Some of them I voted for.
Hillary Clinton
I believe that there is no test of greatness in periods, nations or men more sure than the development, among them or in them, of a noble grotesque, and no test of comparative smallness or limitation, of one kind or another, more sure than the absence of grotesque invention, or incapability of understanding it.
John Ruskin
I was never a Certified Public Accountant. I just had a degree in accounting. It would require passing a test, which I would not have been able to do.
Bob Newhart
Kids can and will thrive in the right conditions, but it all seems to start with the teachers, and giving those teachers the resources to teach- and not just to test.
Morgan Spurlock
A difficult crowd will always test your true ability.
Boy George
Real men are sadly lacking in this world, for when they are put to the test they prove worthless.
Franz Liszt
But when I was selected, after my very first tour of squadron duty, to become one of the youngest candidates for the test pilot school, I began to realize, maybe you are a little bit better.
Alan Shepard
The healthy Christian is not necessarily the extrovert, ebullient Christian, but the Christian who has a sense of God’s presence stamped deep on his soul, who trembles at God’s word, who lets it dwell in him richly by constant meditation upon it, and who tests and reforms his life daily in response to it.
J. I. Packer
A great many people wonder why it was that Christ did not come at once to Martha and Mary, whom He loved, whenever He heard of their affliction. It was to try them, and it is the same with His dealings toward us. If He seems not to come to us in our affliction, it is only to test us.
Dwight L. Moody
If any remedy is tested under controlled scientific conditions and proved to be effective, it will cease to be alternative and will simply become medicine. So-called alternative medicine either hasn’t been tested or it has failed its tests.
Richard Dawkins
I remember my first test in F1. After five laps, I came back to the pits and tried to play it cool – ‘Oh yeah, I’m fine, I’m on top of this’ – but I was completely lost.
Sebastian Vettel
I think the first thing parents need to start doing is absolutely refuse to cooperate with any psychological evaluation of children in school. Schools should not be mental hospitals. Parents should say that the only tests they want their children to have are those respecting their academic subjects and nothing else.
Peter Breggin
Everything that originates from God will endure the test of time. Therefore, it is good to check out the origins of everything to make sure they were started by God.
Eric Ludy
The test of love is in how we live.
Richard L. Evans
The two great tests of character are wealth and poverty.
Charles A. Beard
We are creating a one size fits all system that needlessly brands many young people as failures, when they might thrive if offered a different education whose progress was measured differently. Paradoxically we’re embracing standardized tests just when the economy is eliminating standardized jobs.
Robert Reich
The greek word for temptation means to test, to try, to prove.
Selwyn Hughes
In school tests, there’s only one answer for each question, and you might get zero or half points if you’re wrong. But in the real world, things aren’t so black and white, so think about things on your own and express them in words or pictures. That’s how you communicate with people. That’s so important.
Hideaki Anno
Not every puzzle is intended to be solved. Some are in place to test your limits. Others are, in fact, not puzzles at all.
Vera Nazarian
I find the songs that have the most human components in production are the ones that will stand the test of time.
Ryan Tedder
The instructor is always silent when the test is given… …When God is silent in your life… You are being tested.
Rick Warren
Each one of us has our own evolution of life, and each one of us goes through different tests which are unique and challenging. But certain things are common. And we do learn things from each other’s experience. On a spiritual journey, we all have the same destination.
A. R. Rahman
Deceit is the mark of evil. Even if the evil messenger does not appear in person, the test is the same.
John Andreas Widtsoe
If others hurt you, let the injury go. This is your test. If you let it go, you will find serenity.
Wayne Dyer
Arsenic sticks around and today it’s easily found after death if somebody thinks of looking for it, because the problem with arsenic, it isn’t looked for in the common tests for drugs.
Michael Baden
The new leaders face new tests such as how to lead in this idea-intensive, interdependent network environment
John Sculley
Best marks go to cheaters and memorizers. Marks depend on memorizing and not on real knowledge. When you cram into your head for a test you may get a high mark but forget it the next day. That’s not an education. I suggest just Good and Bad at the end of the term on report cards. Or maybe nothing.
Frank Allen
Bel Kaufman
To talk about the superiority of an ethnic group on the basis of some points of difference on IQ tests is idiotic.
Charles Murray
Running for the presidency’s not an IQ test.
Rick Perry
The test of one’s behavior pattern is their relationship to society, relationship to work and relationship to sex.
Alfred Adler
You’ll hear people say it’s racist to test. Folks, it’s racist not to test. Because guess who gets shuffled through the system oftentimes? Children whose parents don’t speak English as a first language, inner-city kids. It’s so much easier to quit on somebody than to remediate.
George W. Bush
A race between Perry and Christie would test whether Americans would rather be executed or eaten.
Andy Borowitz
I have learned that, although I am a good teacher, I am a much better student, and I was blessed to learn valuable lessons from my students on a daily basis. They taught me the importance of teaching to a student – and not to a test.
Erin Gruwell
Neurologists have a host of clinical tests that let them observe what a brain-damaged patient can and cannot do.
Floyd Skloot
In the early days, I often felt that I was taking a math test when we were playing. It was a profound feeling of having to prove myself.
Chris Stein
The real test of being in the presence of God is, that you either forget about yourself altogether or see yourself as a small, dirty object.
C. S. Lewis
At the combine we went through medical exams from every team, the most extensive physicals I’ve ever had: blood tests, MRIs, heart monitors, everything. Because of my injury teams really paid attention to my lower body.
C. J. McCollum
I think most women we go through a stage in relationship, this is men and women where I’m trusting you, but now I got to test it, I have to make sure your the real deal.
Gabrielle Dennis
I think there should be a literacy test and a poll tax for people to vote.
Ann Coulter
Patrick thought we should try to put an audience in front of one of the workshops, basically in front of the class and see how the performers rose to having an audience there, because he said, “You know, it’s a really interesting test, because sometimes it gets even funnier.”
Brian Henson
Everything in life serves as a challenge and test to elevate us. Therefore it is right to be grateful for the opportunity to learn and grow through tackling this real life experience.
Moshe Chaim Luzzatto
If my future were determined just by my performance on a standardized test, I wouldn’t be here. I guarantee you that.
Michelle Obama
It is easy to be pleasant when life flows by like a song, but the man worth while is the one who will smile when everything goes dead wrong. For the test of the heart is trouble, and it always comes with years, and the smile that is worth the praises of earth is the smile that shines through the tears.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Love and charity for the whole human race, that is the test of true religiousness.
Swami Vivekananda
The hope of courage lies in every heart, together with the fear that we will fail. When the test came, you did not fail.
Romeo LeBlanc
A search always starts with Beginner’s Luck and ends with the Test of the Conqueror.
Paulo Coelho
No institution which does not continually test its ideals, techniques and measure of accomplishment can claim real vitality.
John Milton
…The hagaddah came to Sarajevo for a reason. It was here to test us, to see if there were people who could see that what united us was more than what divided us. That to be a human being matters more than to be a Jew or a Muslim, Catholic or Orthodox. p. 361
Geraldine Brooks
Nuclear tests poison the environment – and they also poison the political climate. They breed mistrust, isolation and fear.
Ban Ki-moon
Life is filled with tests, one after another, and if you don’t recognize them, you are certain to fail the most important ones.
Brian Herbert
The Lord doesn’t put us through this test just to give us a test: He does it because the process will change us.
Henry B. Eyring
I went to a high school, I took tests, I took finals, I went to football games – I did the whole thing. Because I really wanted to have that normalcy.
Lily Collins
I am a product of affirmative action. I am the perfect affirmative action baby. I am Puerto Rican, born and raised in the south Bronx. My test scores were not comparable to my colleagues at Princeton and Yale. Not so far off so that I wasn’t able to succeed at those institutions.
Sonia Sotomayor
It was pretty fun [auditioning on the Millennium Falcon], because I enjoyed the material a lot. Last year I read for the directors, then came to England and did a test on the Falcon, then came back and did a couple more screen tests in Los Angeles.
Alden Ehrenreich
As a boy, I was ashamed to wear glasses. I memorized the eye chart, and then on the test they asked essay questions.
Woody Allen
The test is the sixty seconds of every minute, and the sixty minutes of every hour, not our times of prayer and devotional meetings.
Oswald Chambers
You don’t have to test everything to destruction just to see if you made it right.
Neil Gaiman
We need to bear in mind that we don’t have religious tests in this country, and we also need to remember that some of our best allies in the war against Islamic terrorism are Muslims.
Mitch McConnell
The real test of character is how you treat someone who has no possibility of doing you any good.
George Orwell
When the National Security Agency recruited me, they put me through a day of lie detector tests. They found out all my weaknesses and immediately seduced me. They used the strongest drugs in our culture, sex, power and money, to win me over.
John Perkins
That is one of the Law’s purposes, of course: to test the qualities of those who choose to employ it.
Frank Herbert
Men in general judge more by the sense of sight than by the sense of touch, because everyone can see but few can test by feeling. Everyone sees what you seem to be, few know what you really are; and those few do not dare take a stand against the general opinion.
Niccolo Machiavelli
A test of a people is how it behaves toward the old. It is easy to love children. Even tyrants and dictators make a point of being fond of children. But the affection and care for the old, the incurable, the helpless are the true gold mines of a culture.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
Voters are more than Catholics, Protestants or Jews. They make up their minds for many diverse reasons, good and bad. To submit the candidates to a religious test is unfair enough – to apply it to the voters is divisive, degrading and wholly unwarranted.
John F. Kennedy
I mean, everyone agrees with stress tests for banks. I mean that’s clear. But banks should do that on their own. And they should worry about their own capital functioning. That’s what they should do. It shouldn’t be a government function.
Arthur Laffer
When you do take the home pregnancy test, it doesn’t quite seem real. But when you see the baby and the heartbeat on the ultrasound, it’s so incredible.
Danica McKellar
A test of your love for God is to examine your love for others.
Henry Blackaby
I encourage all men – and all women who love their men – to make sure to get out every year, from the age of 50 on, and have PSA and DRE tests. With early detection, you can have an early cure.
Mandy Patinkin
As president, I will stand up to the great human rights tests of our time – in China, Russia, and the Middle East. We must send a signal to our allies and adversaries that America is back in the leadership business.
Carly Fiorina
We’ve become so accustomed to teaching to the tests that we’ve forgotten about a child’s joy of discovery.
Elizabeth Esty
Space offers extraordinary potential for commerce and adventure, for new innovations and new tests of will. As Americans, we can’t help but reach for the stars. It’s our nature. It’s our destiny.
Bill Frist
It is evidently necessary to generate and test candidates for solutions in some systematic manner.
Niklaus Wirth
Creative work is incredibly difficult, and that is where the tests lie. Ordinary professionalism and twenty years’ experience can accomplish a lot, but it can’t access the hidden places. That still needs what it always needs – a condition of complete simplicity, costing not less than everything.
Jeanette Winterson
Only a real risk tests the reality of a belief.
C. S. Lewis
Some Native people suggest that one should test how cold the hands are by touching the thumb to the little finger of the same hand. As soon as you cannot carry out this exercise you are reaching a dangerous state of incapacity and you should immediately take steps to warm up.
Mors Kochanski
One afternoon when I was 9, my dad told me I’d be skipping school the next day. Then we drove 12 hours from Melbourne to Sydney for the Centenary Test, a once-in-a-lifetime commemorative cricket match. It was great fun – especially for a kid who was a massive sports fan.
Hugh Jackman
I want to test my maximum and see how much I can do. And I want to change the world of swimming.
Michael Phelps
Her business manager said, you know, Gilda [Radner] left you that house. That’s when I decided to stay and test it out. And after about a month, the roots grew, and I didn’t ever want to live anywhere else for the rest of my life – travel, yes, but not to live anywhere else.
Gene Wilder
Having played the Old Course many times since my first visit in 1981, I am now of the opinion it is one of the best and most beautiful tests of links golf anywhere in the world.
Tom Watson
The experiential test of whether this art is great or good, or minor or abysmal is the effect it has on your own sense of the world and of yourself. Great art changes you.
Wendy Beckett
I want to risk hitting my head on the ceiling of my talent. I want to really test it out and say: O.K., you’re not that good. You just reached the level here. I don’t ever want to fail, but I want to risk failure every time out of the gate.
Quentin Tarantino
Now the problem with standardized tests is that it’s based on the mistake that we can simply scale up the education of children like you would scale up making carburetors. And we can’t, because human beings are very different from motorcars, and they have feelings about what they do and motivations in doing it, or not.
Ken Robinson
I love watching Crufts on the television, especially the agility tests; I find them very impressive.
Victoria Pendleton
The greater our level of understanding, the harder the tests become.
Muhammad Ali
Eat bread. You don’t know if it’s been polluted. Drink water, you don’t know whether it’s been polluted. So living is a test.
John Henrik Clarke
Perhaps there is no greater test of a man’s regularity and easiness of conscience than his readiness to face the postman. Blessed is he who is made happy by the sound of a rat-tat! The good are eager for it; but the naughty tremble at the sound thereof.
William Makepeace Thackeray
Training to become champion is the toughest thing. The fight itself is just a test.
Georges St-Pierre
The educational system is pretty much geared to passing the next exam. You’re educated to pass tests and not to understand.
Noam Chomsky
I’ve never had a surprise birthday party. I’ve had every other type of surprise. I’ve had surprise beatings, surprise drug tests, surprise daughter I think.
Dave Attell
There’s no better way to test a person than to put them in the middle of a war. That’s clearly going to show what kind of a character you’re telling a story about.
Steven Spielberg
Korean students are hard working, talented, and they do what they need to do. They succeed in exams. They are highly motivated to succeed in tests.
Dan Shechtman
Life’s not some slot machine in an arcade with a sign that flashes up saying ‘I’m sorry, you have been killed. Would you like another go?’ But we might get put through the same test each time, get faced with the same situations until we’ve learned how to cope.
Peter James
To test a modest man’s modesty do not investigate if he ignores applause, find out if he abides criticism.
Franz Grillparzer
I hate tests. It’s a really lousy way to judge a person’s ability.
Bill Paxton
When you’re faced with challenges in any industry, but especially the music industry, it tests you in a lot of ways, both personally and professionally.
Jessica Origliasso
When test scores go up, we should worry, because of how poor a measure they are of what matters, and what you typically sacrifice in a desperate effort to raise scores.
Alfie Kohn
So in every test, let us say: “Thank you, my God, because this was needed for my salvation.”
Elder Paisios of Mount Athos
The test of faith is whether I can make space for difference. Can I recognize God’s image in someone who is not in my image, who language, faith, ideal, are different from mine? If I cannot, then I have made God in my image instead of allowing him to remake me in his.
Jonathan Sacks
It is not the literal past that rules us, save, possibly, in a biological sense. It is images of the past. Each new historical era mirrors itself in the picture and active mythology of its past or of a past borrowed from other cultures. It tests its sense of identity, of regress or new achievement against that past.
George Steiner
The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation. Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what? After you start doing the thing, that’s when the motivation comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.
John C. Maxwell
Stay strong! Your test will become your test-imony, your mess will become your mess-age.
Max Lucado
The only way to test a hypothesis is to look for all the information that disagrees with it.
Karl Popper
Continue your quest by taking the test.В Yes, but what test? What test was I supposed to take? The Kobayashi Maru? The Pepsi Challenge? Could the clue have been any more vague?
Ernest Cline
The Heart that is not in love will fail the test.
When everything goes wrong, what a joy to test your soul and see if it has endurance and courage! An invisible and all-powerful enemy—some call him God, others the Devil, seem to rush upon us to destroy us; but we are not destroyed.
Nikos Kazantzakis
Action not backed by knowledge and knowledge not translatable into action, both can not stand the test of time.
Pandurang Shastri Athavale
Often when religious leaders come together, they talk about a particular sexual ethic, or an abstruse doctrine, as though this, rather than compassion, was the test of spiritual life.
Karen Armstrong
Dullness in matters of government is a good sign, and not a bad one – in particular, dullness in parliamentary government is a test of its excellence, an indication of its success.
Walter Bagehot
“Comfort” is no test of truth; on the contrary, truth is often far from being “comfortable”.
Swami Vivekananda
My advice to teens is to try and do something that scares you every day because it’s the only way you can test how far you can really go.
Zac Efron
The ultimate test … to see the good in evil and the evil in good.
Frank Herbert
In 1960-61, a small group of female pilots went through many of the same medical tests as the Mercury astronauts and scored very well on them – in fact, better than some of the astronauts did.
Henry Spencer
A curious mind does not jump to conclusions but tests carefully and thoroughly. A curious mind will draw on all of life’s experience to get to the big “uh huh.” The curious cut the data by quintile, by segment, and by user.
Michael J. Silverstein
The United States Constitution is clear. It prohibits religious tests for public office.
Jeb Bush
There’s this thing that’s come about that wasn’t there when I started acting which is they do this thing called a chemistry test. They put a camera in front of two people, it’s usually a boy and a girl, and they go, [whispering]. It’s impossible. You can’t manufacture it or film it, it just has to happen.
Cillian Murphy
The day you wind up single through divorce or separation is the day you get to test who you really are.
Ernie J Zelinski
During the Jim Crow era, we know that racially targeted and racially motivated voter suppression was often blatant. Legislators adapted overtly racist policies like literacy tests, and poll taxes in an effort to shape the electorate.
Alex Padilla
A Test match is like a painting. A one day match is like a Rolf Harris painting.
Ian Chappell
The young knowledge worker whose job is too small to challenge and test his abilities either leaves or declines rapidly into premature middle age, soured, cynical, unproductive.
Peter Drucker
I went to a public school through sixth grade, and being good at tests wasn’t cool.
Bill Gates
The real test of friendship is can you literally do nothing with the other person? Can you enjoy those moments of life that are utterly simple?
Eugene Kennedy
If you’re an American and you are, you know, subscribing to the ideals and the creed and the values that we believe in as a country, you know, then we don’t have a religious test in this country.
Barack Obama
Every moment of your life is either a test or a celebration.
David Deida
A lot of the album is made of love songs I’ve written over the past three or four years that have lasted the test of time. It’s probably the thing that connects the songs together other than the sound of my vocals.
Vance Joy
I would look at the first chapter of any new novel as a final test of its merits. If there was a murdered man under the sofa in the first chapter, I read the story. If there was no murdered man under the sofa in the first chapter, I dismissed the story as tea-table twaddle, which it often really was.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Directing is a constant test of your communicative powers. You’re constantly trying to explain people your vision of what you want and steer these tiny little details into a cohesive thing.
Tom Hanks
Congratulations on passing your test! Your HIV positive.
Frankie Boyle
I love films that test cynicism and inspire you to do better in your dealings with your family and with strangers.
Jennifer Phang
Each man calls barbarism whatever is not his own practice; for indeed it seems we have no other test of truth and reason than the example and pattern of the opinions and customs of the country we live in
Michel de Montaigne
Document, evaluate, focus, test.
Scott D. Anthony
It is easy to do things for our own families and loved ones, but to give of our substance for the stranger who is in need is the real test of our charity and love for our fellowmen.
Nathan Eldon Tanner
When I am given a multiple choice test I choose not to take it.
Demetri Martin
In 2004, we were in a rebuilding phase after the disastrous 2003 World Cup campaign, and the batsmen, in particular, did not know where they would bat or what was their role. For example, in the one-dayers, we were playing Shahid Afridi on top of the order, but we didn’t consider him for the Tests.
The test of good manners is to be patient with the bad ones.
Solomon Ibn Gabirol
At that time [1909] the chief engineer was almost always the chief test pilot as well. That had the fortunate result of eliminating poor engineering early in aviation.
Igor Sikorsky
The test of a vocation is the love of the drudgery it involves.
Logan Pearsall Smith
The test of civilization is the power of drawing the most benefit out of cities.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Lord doesn’t always take you in a straight line. He tests you sometimes.
Tony Dungy
Humor is the only test of gravity, and gravity of humor; for a subject which will not bear raillery is suspicious, and a jest which will not bear serious examination is false wit.
The greatest test of Christianity is the wear and tear of daily life; it is like the shining of silver: the more it is rubbed the brighter it grows.
Oswald Chambers
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
There is no such test of a man’s superiority of character as in the well-conducting of an unavoidable quarrel.
Henry Taylor
I have never had a single positive doping test, and I do not take performance-enhancing drugs.
Lance Armstrong
I would not look with favor upon a President working to subvert the First Amendment’s guarantees of religious liberty … Neither do I look with favor upon those who would work to subvert Article VI of the Constitution by requiring a religious test – even by indirection.
John F. Kennedy
To test if you are worrying too much about looking good, observe how you feel when you find out you’ve made a mistake or don’t know something.
Ray Dalio
Great faith is the product of great fights. Great testimonies are the outcome of great tests. Great triumphs can only come out of great trials.
Smith Wigglesworth
Preoccupation with money is the great test of small natures, but only a small test of great ones.
Nicolas Chamfort
A great way to test the conditioning of your team is the two-mile run.
Bobby Knight
The true test of courage is to be afraid and to go ahead and do it anyway – to be scared, is to have your knees knocking, but to walk on in there anyway.
Oprah Winfrey
She sits before me, sullen but hopeful, characterless, about to dissolve into tears. I squeeze her hand back, moved, no, touched by her ignorance of evil. She has one more test to pass. Do you own a briefcase?” I ask her, swallowing.
Bret Easton Ellis
I get a call – said, do you want to be an astronaut? I said, oh, my gosh, yes. And he said, be here on Monday to take these tests. I had needles stuck in every part of my body, tubes running up my bottom, so I went along with it. It didn’t bother me.
Wally Funk
The real test that I believe that God is love is that tragedies don’t separate me from the conviction that God is love.
Sinclair B. Ferguson
It’s as if every conversation with a woman was a test, and men always failed it, because they always lacked the key to the code and so they never quite understood what the conversation was really about.
Orson Scott Card
The ultimate test of what a truth means is the conduct it dictates or inspires.
William James
Guerrilla war is a test of wills. Obama’s actual objectives – rollback in Iraq, containment in Syria – are not unreasonable. But they require commitment and determination. In other words, will. You can’t just make one speech declaring war, then disappear and go fundraising.
Charles Krauthammer
It is sometimes said that conduct is supremely important and worship helps it. The truth is that worship is supremely important and conduct tests it
William Temple
We wanted to test each other’s capacity for survival: only if we had tried in vain to destroy one another would we know we were safe.
Alain de Botton
Sometimes I lie awake at night and I ask, “Is life a multiple choice test or is it a true or false test?” …Then a voice comes to me out of the dark and says, “We hate to tell you this but life is a thousand word essay.
Charles M. Schulz
The gene therapies on my body are to measure the effects on humans. There is plenty of animal research to support these gene therapies but no one was conducting human tests.
Liz Parrish
If you were to share your workout playlist with the world, I guarantee there’s stuff on there that wouldn’t pass the cool test, and M2 helped in that way.
Jancee Dunn

Harry Emerson Fosdick
We don’t really care about test scores. We care about adult outcomes.
Raj Chetty
I can write for weeks or months sometimes and edit it down to a song. I feel like it’s a piece of music that will hopefully stand the test of time and hopefully capture a moment in history if I’m doing it correctly and honestly.
I do not want to die being known for doing baby mama DNA tests on my show.
Ricki Lake
Suffering can serve us. Suffering tests our trust in God’s promises. And we have a great interest in knowing the truth about our trust in Him.
Mark Dever
The ‘lords of the earth’ are those who are doing their Will. It does not necessarily mean people with coronets and automobiles; there are plenty of such people who are the most sorrowful slaves in the world. The sole test of one’s lordship is to know what one’s true Will is, and to do it.
Aleister Crowley
Most corporate decisions aren’t going to meet the test of high validity. But they’re going to be way above the low-validity situations that we worry about.
Gary A. Klein
Substance abuse is a disease which doesn’t go away overnight. I’m working hard to overcome it. I did fail my recent drug test. I’m prepared to face the consequences.
Lindsay Lohan
Perception was easily accomplished, required little effort, and it never had to stand the test of reality.
Terry Goodkind
Although we lost it has been a great Test and one of the best I have ever played in. Hopefully the next one will be exactly the same.
Ricky Ponting
To make inexpensive guns impossible to get is to say that you’re putting a money test on getting a gun. It’s racism in its worst form.
Roy Innis
As you know from school, it’s when you have not prepared for the test that you have the fear of failing. And if you have prepared, even if you fail, you’ve done your best.
Alice Walker
There’s a test they can do to determine a baby’s gender ahead of time; I think they insert a tiny photo of Leonardo DiCaprio into the uterus, and if the baby punches it, it’s a boy.
Dave Barry
Everyone who believes in God must have His revelation in his spirit, or else what he believes is not God but mere human wisdom, ideals or words. Such faith cannot endure the test.

Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
I know there’s been a lot that’s been said about animated voice work, as though it’s ‘you can do this in your jeans and there’s no camera and no pressure there. It’s no big deal. It’s easy.’ The truth is, it’s really a great test: how deep is your ability is to access your imagination?
Nicolas Cage
Learning happens in the minds and souls, not in the databases of multiple-choice tests.
Ken Robinson
Max, if you survive your final test, can you steal me one of those magic outfits for me?” I’ll try to get one for each of us. Hey! ‘If’?
James Patterson
There comes a point when you need to get over the fear and get on with your life, and a lot of people don’t seem to be capable of that anymore. From blood tests to gated communities, we have embraced the cult of fear, and now we don’t seem to know how to put it back where it belongs.
Mira Grant
In an ancient and dead language, any recognition of living nature attracts us. These are such sentences as were written while grass grew and water ran. It is no small recommendation when a book will stand the test of mere unobstructed sunshine and daylight.
Henry David Thoreau
True character stands the test of emergencies. Do not be mistaken, it is weakness from which the awakening is rude.
Napoleon Bonaparte
Allah tests our patience and our fortitude. He tests out strength of faith. be patient and there will endless rewards for you, insha’Allah” – Utaz Badr
Leila Aboulela
I tell people it’s like shopping for a car.People are taking candidates out for a test drive, seeing what they like.
John Thune
Everything they teach in school is oriented so that they can test it to show that you know it, instead of taking note of the obvious, which is that people learn by doing what people want to do.
Roger Schank
You win by trying. And failing. Test, try, fail, measure, evolve, repeat, persist.
Seth Godin
Machiavelli says that if as a ruler you accept that your every action must pass moral scrutiny, you will without fail be defeated by an opponent who submits to no such moral test. To hold on to power, you have not only to master the crafts of deception and treachery but to be prepared to use them where necessary.
J. M. Coetzee
Uh, yeah, this is the VD clinic calling. Speaking of being positive, your test is back. Stop sharing the love.
Andy Rooney
Evolution is a theory, and it’s a theory that you can test. We’ve tested evolution in many ways. You can’t present good evidence that says evolution is not a fact.
Bill Nye
Never forget that God tests his real friends more severely than the lukewarm ones.
Kathryn Hulme
Jnana teaches that the world should be given up, but not on that account to be abandoned. To be in the world but not of it-is the true test of the sannyasin.
Swami Vivekananda
Success on the Web require high-level corporate understanding of the Internet’s capabilities and support of early test-and-invest projects.
Bill Gates
So that’s little Scorpious. Make sure you beat him in every test, Rosie. Thank god you’ve inherited your mother’s brains.

Michael Owen
At the end of my life, I was told to vote for it for pensioners; I’ m not in favour of means tests for pensioners or anybody.
Tony Benn
The Behaviorist cannot find consciousness in the test-tube of his science.
John B. Watson
There can be theory but, you know, the problem is you’ve got to be able to test it. So theories are one thing, testing is another.
Brian Schmidt
In ‘Me Before You,’ the two characters popped into my head fully formed, which is really strange and unusual. Other books, I sit on them for two or three months. I have a whole routine: I buy a nice book; I hand-write all their characteristics. I put them through little tests just to see how they would react to things.
Jojo Moyes
Paint what you really see, not what you think you ought to see; not the object isolated as in a test tube, but the object enveloped in sunlight and atmosphere, with the blue dome of Heaven reflected in the shadows.
Claude Monet
When I was 17, I signed my record deal and passed my driver’s test. It was a very good year!
Conor Maynard
Even if all we have is a little, the Lord desires us to be joyfully generous, so that He will have for His church an abundance for every good work. Let us not be selfish or deceived by money. In a real sense, money is not a blessing; it’s a test.
Francis Frangipane
In terms of pure physical effort, today was probably as hard as I’ve worked in any part. I spent the morning rowing, including the change of speeds Arrius [the Roman commander] test Judah with. A real bone-breaker.
Charlton Heston
I have played a lot of Test cricket with Paul Collingwood over the past year. I seem to be spending more time with him than my fiancee.
Kevin Pietersen
I love things that age well – things that don’t date, that stand the test of time and that become living examples of the absolute best.
Giorgio Armani
There seems to be no stopping drug frenzy once it takes hold of a nation. What starts with an innocuous HUGS, NOT DRUGS bumper sticker soon leads to wild talk of shooting dealers and making urine tests a condition for employment — anywhere.
Barbara Ehrenreich
An effective way to test code is to exercise it at its natural boundaries
Brian Kernighan
I took a lie detector test the other day. No, I didn’t.
Steven Wright
Tests account for only a couple of hours within the six years of a child’s primary education, but parents expect to know how their children are doing and the government has a responsibility to monitor and control standards.
Andrew Adonis, Baron Adonis
God speaks to man through the Scriptures, and He does not reveal normative truth except as it is already revealed in the Scriptures themselves. The test of truth must remain not what man experiences today but what the Scriptures have stated long ago.
John F Walvoord
With Christ, it is not how much we give, but what we do not give that is the real test.
Oswald Chambers
I sometimes feel like life is just one big test to see how long we can survive.
Jessica Sorensen
You and I were created for joy, and if we miss it we miss the reason for our existence. If our joy is honest joy, it must somehow be congruous with human tragedy. This is the test of joy’s integrity. It is compatible with pain. Only the heart that hurts has a right to joy.
Lewis B. Smedes
Love is not without its flaws. The stronger the love, the more it tests you. Compassion and empathy will make true love persist.
Khalil Gibran
Computer science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes, biology is about microscopes or chemistry is about beakers and test tubes. Science is not about tools. It is about how we use them, and what we find out when we do.
Edsger Dijkstra
Form is burden. Sometimes being part of the system enslaves the mind and greatly limits the imagination by enslaving it to form. Form is a burden to the mind that sees no limits. Form is a prison for the soul who sees possibilities outside the lines and wishes to test them.
Suzy Kassem
The test of Christian character should be that a man is a joy-bearing agent to the world.
Henry Ward Beecher
All I mean is, I’m not the kind of audience comedy directors want at a test screening because I seldom laugh, and if I do, it’s not very loud. That doesn’t mean I don’t like the movie.
Todd Solondz
God will use your mess for good. We see a perfect mess; God sees a perfect chance to train, test , and teach.
Max Lucado
As with the acquisition, so with the use of money; they way in which a man spends it is often one of the surest tests of character.
William Mathews
Passing my motorcycle theory test gave me a disproportionate feeling of greatness.
James McAvoy
You have to remember, we may be the only nation, the only one I know of, that uses test scores not to assess kids, but to assess teachers. I think we’re unique in doing that.
John Merrow
On the edge of destiny, you must test your strength.
William Avery
Speculation is perfectly all right, but if you stay there you’ve only founded a superstition. If you test it, you’ve started a science.
Hal Clement
People are beginning to wish that the voters had been given breathometer tests when they voted in the present government.
William F. Buckley, Jr.

Joyce Meyer
The test of liberty is the position and security of minorities.
Lord Acton
I auditioned for Robert Redford once and I was so starstruck I couldn’t even speak. I had a mic wire at a screen test clipped to me and then I got kind of nervous and I paced in a circle and then took a step and tripped and fell on my face. You just have to forgive yourself and keep going on.
Ethan Hawke
For that reason the simple test of the slogan ‘Consume Less’ as a basis for social action on the environment would be to tell it to the blacks in the ghetto. The message will not be very well received for there are many people in this country who consume less than is needed to sustain a decent life.
Barry Commoner
What the Soviet Union was to the ideology of Marxism, the Low-Fat Campaign is to the ideology of nutritionism—its supreme test and, as now is coming clear, its most abject failure.
Michael Pollan
So much easier to aim for the smallest possible audience, not the largest, to build long-term value among a trusted, delighted tribe, to create work that matters and stands the test of time.
Seth Godin
Life is a test and this world a place of trial. Always the problems – or it may be the same problem – will be presented to every generation in different forms.
Winston Churchill
I wasn’t going to be one of those people who died wondering what if? I would keep putting my dreams to the test – even though it meant living with uncertainty and fear of failure. This is the shadowland of hope, and anyone with a dream must learn to live there.
Alex Haley
If it is, in reality, capitalism that is the motor force behind the destructive forms of globalization, then it must be in their capacity to neutralize or transform this particular mode of exploitation that one can best test these various forms of resistance to the West.
Fredric Jameson
Jesus Christ is the greatest man in the history of the world. And to me, he’s the greatest person in the history of mankind and the universe. We can’t prove it, I can’t put it in a test tube or in an astronomical formula, but by faith I believe it because the Bible teaches it.
Billy Graham
If you have knocked over a batsman once – fine, it happens. Twice, OK. But more than that in the space of a few Tests then there is definitely something to work with.
Glenn McGrath
When you put yourself in environments that continually test you, that’s where all the good stories come from. That’s where the jokes come from is from the shitty parts.
Henry Rollins
Towards the end of the careers, senior cricketers may play only Tests. This means they’ll be available for Ranji matches.
Ravichandran Ashwin
It’s the journey that matters. Learning is more important than the test. Practice well, and the games will take care of themselves.
Tony Dungy
The test is can you do something, rather than have a theoretical argument – can you make a difference?
Johann Lamont
It used to hurt me that people thought I didn’t have the technique and the temperament to play Test cricket.
Gautam Gambhir
The acid test of politics is not what you say at the hustings, but what you actually do in government.
Margaret Thatcher
Watson augments human decision-making because it isn’t governed by human boundaries. It draws together all this information and forms hypotheses, millions of them, and then tests them with all the data it can find. It learns over time what data is reliable, and that’s part of its learning process.
Ginni Rometty
The intensity of vision in the artist and of vividness in his creations are the sole tests of his imaginative power.
George Henry Lewes
Newborn screening is a public health intervention that involves a simple blood test used to identify many life-threatening genetic illnesses before any symptoms begin.
Lucille Roybal-Allard
It’s strange how dreams get under your skin and give your heart a test for what’s real and what’s imaginary.
Jason Mraz
MAC gave me 55 lipsticks to test. These are the same lipsticks I got caught stealing by the police when I was 15. How ironic.
Eddie Izzard
Business is the real test of the moral life.
Ted Malloch
I think a big test we all face in life on a regular basis is that discouragement test. Life’s not always fair, but I believe if you keep doing the right thing, God will get you to where you are.
Joel Osteen
Life consists of two days:
one for you and one against you, so when it’s for you don’t be proud or reckless, and when it’s against you be patient, for both days are test for you
Ali ibn Abi Talib
Factual information alone isn’t sufficient to guide you through life’s labyrinthine tests. You need and deserve regular deliveries of uncanny revelation. One of your inalienable rights as a human being should therefore be to receive a mysteriously useful omen every day of your life.
Rob Brezsny
And took for truth the test of ridicule.
George Crabbe
If they want to know if prostitutes are positive, they should test the Vice cops.

Dwight D. Eisenhower
View the events you consider obstacles as perfect opportunities to test your resolve and find your purpose.
Wayne Dyer
For all his wisdom, he did not know that love cannot be tested. Honesty can be tested and loyalty. But there is not test for love. Love goes on forever, once it begins, even if we come to hate the one we love. Love goes on forever because love is born in the part of us that does not die.
Gregory David Roberts
Faith’s most severe tests come not when we see nothing, but when we see a stunning array of evidence that seems to prove our faith vain.
Elisabeth Elliot
If someone tests positive for coronavirus, our sport would be stained forever.
Kiki Bertens
The true hero is flawed. The true test of a champion is not whether he can triumph, but whether he can overcome obstacles – preferably of his own making – in order to triumph.
Garth Stein
The true test of relationships is not only how loyal someone is when we fail, but how thrilled they are when we succeed.
John C. Maxwell
I’ve always considered myself a man of integrity as a leader of the American Indian Movement and of Indian people. I will stand that test against anyone at anytime, anywhere.
Russell Means
We have a legal and moral obligation to rid our world of nuclear tests and nuclear weapons. When we put an end to nuclear tests, we get closer to eliminating all nuclear weapons. A world free of nuclear weapons will be safer and more prosperous.
Ban Ki-moon
Diplomats operate through deadlock, which is the way by which two sides can test each other’s determination. Even if they have egos for it few heads of government have the time to resolve stalemates, their meetings are too short and the demands of protocol too heavy.
Henry A. Kissinger
When it comes to efficiency, standardized tests almost sound heaven-sent.
Steven Crowder
If you are rigorous in your own R&D in whatever your area is, you do your own testing, and you really stress-test the thing that you do, I think that gives you a tremendous amount of inner fortitude when you come up against the monolith.
Brian Koppelman
I have passed, I hope, many tests over the course of the last 20-odd years in relation to the peace process and intend to continue to work forward in a very sensible and reasoned way with political colleagues in the Executive.
Martin McGuinness
We do not know the true value of our moments until they have undergone the test of memory.
Georges Duhamel
About 85 percent of what you see is just because I get on the phone and [say], ‘Let’s go do this’. I don’t do any market research or test groups or focus [groups]. I just go, ‘It’s my company; would I buy it, personally?’
Todd McFarlane
Modern research divides nature into tiny pieces and conducts tests that conform neither with natural law nor with practical experience. The results are arranged for the convenience of research, not according to the needs of the farmer.
Masanobu Fukuoka
To like Keats is a test of fitness for understanding poetry, just as to like Shakespeare is a test of general mental capacity.
George Gissing
Religion is no test of nationality, but a personal matter between man and his God.
Mahatma Gandhi
Great leadership is not attained by pursuing greatness but by persevering through great tests.
Myles Munroe
When I hear about some sensational new writer I sort of think, Shut up … you’ve got to be around for a long time before you can really say you’re a writer. You’ve got to stand the test of time, which is the only real test there is.
Martin Amis
Tests are special, the format closest to my heart.
Gautam Gambhir
Not everything made you stronger. It was possible to survive, yet still be crippled for your trouble. Sometimes it was okay to run away, to skip the test, to chicken out. Or at least to get some help.
Scott Westerfeld
There are few cases in which mere popularity should be considered a proper test of merit; but the case of song-writing is, I think, one of the few.
Edgar Allan Poe
Friendships that have stood the test of time and change are surely best.
Joseph Parry
Valor is a gift. Those having it never know for sure whether they have it until the test comes.
Carl Sandburg
The real test of one’s belief in the doctrine of Habeas Corpus is not when one demands its application on behalf of one’s friends but of one’s enemies.
Clement Attlee
The acid test of any truth is found in whether it aids victims in their struggle to overcome victimisation.
James H. Cone
Adversity tests the sincerity of friends
Tests that sugar-coat the truth only set up our kids to fail in worse ways down the road.
Wendy Kopp
The enterprise of Adolf Hitler, with all its clatter and fireworks, and all its cunning and dynamic energy, is the enterprise of an evil spirit, which is apparently allowed its freedom for a time in order to test our faith in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Karl Barth
If in my twenties I’d gotten one of the two-dozen roles that I did screen tests for and almost got, I think I would have become bored with the awards circuit, the whole hype machine.
Viggo Mortensen
You don’t have to pass an IQ test to be in the Senate.
Mark Pryor
Blessings come in packages of two. With every blessing is a test. So don’t ever envy people who seem to have more than you. The more blessings, the more tests. And the greater the blessing, the harder the test.
Yasmin Mogahed
Temptations, like misfortunes, are sent to test our moral strength.
Margaret of Valois
Conduct is the grand test of character. Words are one great evidence of the condition of the heart.
J. C. Ryle
I want people to know that blood tests alone won’t always detect thyroid disease. My blood panels were normal. I think a lot more people have this disease than are diagnosed.
Kim Alexis
The Kingdom of Hereford was unique in the Ununited Kingdoms for having driving tests based on maturity, not age, much to the chagrin of a lot of males, some of whom were still failing to make the grade at thirty-two.
Jasper Fforde
I believe strongly that we should have nominees to the United States Supreme Court based on their qualifications rather than any litmus test.
John McCain
To be true to oneself is the hardest test of life.
Sri Chinmoy
That young man seeks opportunities to test his principles as readily as a drunk picks fights in a bar.
Robert Harris
For me, being world champion, you have to put your body through these extreme tests, day in and day out. So when Sunday comes around, that’s the day when I pamper myself. I might get a massage or go to a spa.
Daniel Jacobs
Whether you struggle to remember a client’s name, aspire to learn a new language, or are a student battling to prepare for the next test, this book is a must. I know of no other source that pulls together so much of what we know about the science of memory and couples it with practical, practicable advice.
Daniel T. Willingham
A test of a Christian’s character is what he does after he comes to the blockade in the road and what his attitude is after everything has left him except Jesus.
Lester Roloff
Women and gay people are the litmus test of whether a society is democratic and respecting human rights. We are the canaries in the mine.
Peter Tatchell
To me, the whole idea of fame and I think it can be a real test of somebody, of who they are. You know, ’cause some strange things happen. I’ve seen some peculiar things as far as a person just living their life.
Tobey Maguire
The usability tests we have conducted during the last year have shown an increasing reluctance among users to accept innovations in Web design. The prevailing attitude is to request designs that are similar to everything else people see on the Web.
Jakob Nielsen
I was 13 when I developed the classic symptoms of a person who gets diabetes: a lot of weight loss, a tremendous thirst, and blurry eyesight. My mom took me to the hospital, and the doctors took some blood tests. My blood sugar was so high that they knew right away.
Bobby Clarke
The trick at every turn was to endure the test of living for as long as possible. The odds of survival were punishingly slim, for the world was naught by a school of calamity and an endless burning furnace of tribulation. But those who survived the world shaped it–even as the world, simultaneously, shaped them.
Elizabeth Gilbert
In my work as an emergency physician, I know that checklists can be helpful. They ensure complex procedures are done thoroughly and provide an extra assurance for safety. But they can also result in a ‘cookbook’ approach, where you get the same recipe of tests and medications as everyone else.
Leana S. Wen
The main purpose of a significance test is to inhibit the natural enthusiasm of the investigator.
Frederick Mosteller
The Supreme Court refuses to abandon its convoluted Lemon test. The Lemon test has created havoc, misunderstanding, and hostility toward religion.
Mathew Staver
Have a lot of conversations. Look at the implications of changing, but ultimately, you have to trust your gut. Test your conflicting advice as much as you can through research and conversations.
JJ Ramberg
When you challenge other people’s ideas of who or how you should be, they may try to diminish and disgrace you. It can happen in small ways in hidden places, or in big ways on a world stage. You can spend a lifetime resenting the tests, angry about the slights and the injustices. Or, you can rise above it.
Carly Fiorina
There’s always a tension in my world between the pragmatic and the practical and the theoretical. I have a very theoretical turn of mind, but I also like to test things in place.
Michael Pollan
I would like to fly in space. Absolutely. That would be cool. I used to just do personally risky things, but now I’ve got kids and responsibilities, so I can’t be my own test pilot. That wouldn’t be a good idea. But I definitely want to fly as soon as it’s a sensible thing to do.
Elon Musk
We were promised that we would have Jehovah, Jesus Christ, as our Savior and Redeemer. He would assure that we would all be resurrected. And He would make it possible for us to pass the test of life if we exercised faith in Him by being obedient.
Henry B. Eyring
To live with fear and not be afraid is the final test of maturity.
Ed Weeks
If you don’t have a test, you won’t be able to have a testimony.
Iyanla Vanzant
In an atmosphere of ahimsa, one has no scope to put his ahimsa to the test. It can be tested only in the face of himsa.
Mahatma Gandhi
To preserve one’s mind intact through a modern college education is a test of courage and endurance, but the battle is worth it and the stakes are the highest possible to man: the survival of reason.
Ayn Rand
Everything is a test.
Terry Pratchett
F. Scott Fitzgerald has an indespensible quote: ‘The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at once and still retain the ability to function’. Or, as I like to call it, ‘O.J. killed his wife, and the police are corrupt.’
Bill Maher
You get two weeks after you do a shoe where you can test whether it’s good or not – if you’re going to like it in 20 years. Then I know that it’s going to be my shoe for a long time. That doesn’t happen very often, but it happens.
Manolo Blahnik
Real integrity stays in place whether the test in adversity or prosperity.
Charles R. Swindoll
Where trial-court and appeals-court nominees were once routinely confirmed on voice vote, they are now routinely subjected to ideological litmus tests, filibusters, and vicious interest-group attacks.
Neil Gorsuch
We are thus brought to a conception of Democracy not merely as a sentiment which desires the well-being of all men, nor yet as a creed which believes in the essential dignity and equality of all men, but as that which affords a rule of living as well as a test of faith.
Jane Addams
The test of your character is what it takes to stop you.
Bob Jones, Sr.
The test for aid to poor nations is therefore whether it makes them capable of being productive. If it fails to do so, it is likely to make them even poorer in the – not so very – long run.
Dean Acheson
This is a do-it-yourself test for paranoia: you know you’ve got it when you can’t think of anything that’s your fault.
Robert M. Hutchins
We want to begin in working-class neighborhoods. We want to test the concept there, because our idea is that fair trade should not just be for the elites, but for everyone, for the majority, for the poor people. Quality food for poor people. Why just quality for the rich? And at an equal price
Victor Suarez Melendez
I completely took off my eyebrows one time for a screen test. I hadn’t even gotten the role yet. So you have to have a commitment.
Katerina Graham
Every time you are passing the test, you are coming closer to Krishna.
Radhanath Swami
Of course, no religious test for the presidency – every faith adds to our national character.
Benjamin Carson
Sincerity is not test of truth-no evidence of correctness of conduct. You may take poison sincerely believing it the needed medicine, but will it save your life?
Tryon Edwards
As long as there are slaughterhouses there will be battlefields. A vegetarian diet is the acid test of humanitarianism.
Leo Tolstoy
Competition in its best form is a test of self. It has nothing to do with medals. The winner is the person who gets the most out of themselves.
Al Oerter
The real test on the path of love is are you willing to give up everything for your love?
Frederick Lenz
To make the common marvelous is the test of genius.
James Russell Lowell
(On soft launches) It allows you to test your assumptions and see which ones you got right, and more, importantly, which ones you got wrong. A big hard launch is expensive. Getting even one thing wrong can force you to go out of business.
Kevin O’Leary
A good threat is worth a thousand tests.
Boris Beizer
Psychiatric diagnosis still relies exclusively on fallible subjective judgments rather than objective biological tests.
Allen Frances
We must remember that the test of our religious principles lies not just in what we say, not only in our prayers, not even in living blameless lives – but in what we do for others
Harry S. Truman
The ultimate test of any civilization is how we treat the most vulnerable… what we do to our children. Our world has lost its direction.
Ravi Zacharias
This is the test of your manhood: How much is there left in you after you have lost everything outside of yourself?
Orison Swett Marden
The family is the test of freedom; because the family is the only thing that the free man makes for himself and by himself.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
The acid test for any theology is this: Is the God presented one that can be loved, heart, soul, mind, and strength? … If it fails to set a lovable God–a radiant, happy, friendly, accessible, and totally competent being–before ordinary people, we have gone wrong
Dallas Willard
And I really wanted a driver’s license. I was 43, had my learner’s permit and had failed the test once already – but that was in Riverhead, on Long Island.
Suzanne Vega
The ultimate test’s always your own serenity. If you don’t have this when you start and maintain it while you’re working you’re likely to build your personal problems right into the machine itself.
Robert M. Pirsig
You can’t meet Labour’s tests by failing to provide answers.
Keir Starmer
You know, in pressure games everyone tests your skills on and off the field.
Wasim Akram
I like the vegetables, the fruits, the beans, the stuff I eat now…All my blood tests are good, and my vital signs are good, and I feel good, and I also have, believe it or not, more energy.
William J. Clinton
I have never taken performance-enhancing drugs whether banned or unbanned, on or off the list, at any time. In fact, I underwent hundreds of tests during my career and all were negative.
Stephen Roche
The test of democracy is freedom of criticism.
David Ben-Gurion
Freedom means freedom from forces and circumstances which would turn man into a thing, which would impose on man the passivity and predictability of matter. By this test, absolute power is the manifestation most inimical to human uniqueness. Absolute power wants to turn people into malleable clay.
Eric Hoffer
No one knows who wrote the laws of physics or where they come from. Science is based on testable, reproducible evidence, and so far we cannot test the universe before the Big Bang.
Michio Kaku
This is a test. It is only a test. Had it been an actual job, you would have received raises, promotions, and other signs of appreciation.
Robert Benchley
Test everything, try everything, and then believe it, and if you find it for the good of many, give it to all.
Swami Vivekananda
In a Glasser Quality School there is no such thing as a closed book test. Students are told to get out their notes and open their books. There is no such thing as being forbidden to ask the teacher or another student for help.
William Glasser
Traditional education is based on facts and figures and passing tests – not on a comprehension of the material and its application to your life.
Will Smith
The supreme religious test of our social order is the hideous commerce of prostitution.
Jane Addams
Ironman distance triathlons are a true test of oneself as a whole. Each race is a test of physical, mental and spiritual toughness that I haven’t found in any other type of racing. At the end of the day, challenging myself on all levels is what it’s about for me.
Timothy O’Donnell
As a test of the closeness of your relationship with the world, sex could never be a patch on being murdered. (That’s when someone really does risk his life for you.)
Quentin Crisp
Jay was intimidating to the point where I was totally intimidated before I even got to the booth. But I was like, this is going to be a test of my mettle. In the South, I’m regarded as the guy who, quote unquote, out-rapped Jay-Z.
Bun B
I wont use abortion as a litmus test with a pro-choice individual. Someone that is an activist on the abortion issue, I think, goes outside the pale, and I cannot support an activist on the abortion issue.
Ken Buck
Pointing is a metaphor we all know. We’ve done a lot of studies and tests on that, and it’s much faster to do all kinds of functions, such as cutting and pasting, with a mouse, so it’s not only easier to use but more efficient.
Steve Jobs
The first test of a truly great man is his humility. By humility I don’t mean doubt of his powers or hesitation in speaking his opinion, but merely an understanding of the relationship of what he can say and what he can do.
John Ruskin
When you get older, everybody sort of changes and moves away. I think that stands the test of time, when you have a friendship from youth that’s still in your life today.
Michelle Gomez
Freemasonry embraces the highest moral laws and will bear the test of
any system of ethics or philosophy ever promulgated for the uplift of man.
Douglas MacArthur
In the real world, very smart people fail and mediocre people rise. Part of what makes people fail or succeed are skills that have nothing to do with IQ. Also, the idea that intelligence can be gauged by an IQ test is erroneous.
Camille Paglia
History is a Rorschach test, people. What you see when you look at it tells you as much about yourself as it does about the past.
Jennifer Donnelly
“You cannot believe what you are saying.” “Well, no. Hardly ever. But the philosopher is like the poet. The latter composes ideal letters for an ideal nymph, only to plumb with his words the depths of passion. The philosopher tests the coldness of his gaze, to see how far he can undermine the fortress of bigotry.”
Umberto Eco
The test of true competence is the end result.
L. Ron Hubbard
Time is the only test of honest men, one day is space enough to know a rogue.
Every genuine test of a theory is an attempt to falsify it, or to refute it.
Karl Popper
The practical effect of a belief is the real test of its soundness.
James Anthony Froude
Would you rather Test-First, or Debug-Later ?
Robert Cecil Martin
There’s always pressure in test cricket we just need to stick to our toes.
Kevin Pietersen
We get divided generationally and in other ways – libertarians versus more traditional social conservatives, for example – and we’ve got to provide some flexibility there. But we don’t need to have quite so many litmus tests. We need to have our big picture focused on economic issues.
Asa Hutchinson
If you give it to God, He transforms your test into a testimony, your mess into a message, and your misery into a ministry.
Rick Warren
I support [FRAME’s] objectives, largely because I do not believe that results of tests conducted on animals will be neccessarily relevant to human beings.
Ian Jenkins
So, the great test of life is to see whether we will hearken to and obey God’s commands in the midst of the storms of life. It is not to endure storms, but to choose the right while they rage. And the tragedy of life is to fail in that test and so fail to qualify to return in glory to our heavenly home.
Henry B. Eyring
The test of Ahimsa is absence of jealousy.
Swami Vivekananda
Refresh your commitment today to test everything by the Word of God. The surest defense against spiritual deception is knowledge of spiritual truth.
David Jeremiah
Sony and Nickelodeon knew they wanted to create a TV show that was a platform for a band they would have for Sony. They knew what they wanted, and it took two years of auditions and screen tests and countless people coming in and out the door until they finally settled on the four of us.
James Maslow
Many criminals believe what they say is true; they could pass a lie detector test.
Michael Moore
Love is from the infinite, and will remain until eternity. The seeker of love escapes the chains of birth and death. Tomorrow, when resurrection comes, The heart that is not in love will fail the test.
The real test of business greatness is in giving opportunity to others.
Charles M. Schwab
Sometimes the most brilliant and intelligent minds do not shine in standardized tests because they do not have standardized minds.
Diane Ravitch
It is one of the severest tests of friendship to tell your friend his faults. So to love a man that you cannot bear to see a stain upon him, and to speak painful truth through loving words, that is friendship.
Henry Ward Beecher
Conventional manners are a kind of literacy test for the alien who comes among us.
Katharine Fullerton Gerould
The facts will eventually test all our theories, and they form, after all, the only impartial jury to which we can appeal.
Louis Agassiz
It’s Christmas at Ground Zero The button has been pressed The radio Just let us know That this is not a test Everywhere the atom bombs are droppin It’s the end of all humanity No more time for last minute shoppin’ It’s time to face your final destiny.
Charles Sumner
If you can’t test it, don’t build it. If you don’t test it, rip it out.
Boris Beizer
A ‘passing’ test doesn’t mean ‘no problem.’ It means no problem *observed*. This time. With these inputs. So far. On my machine.
Michael Bolton
It would be morally reprehensible not to tell the truth… Everything I have written has stood the test of time.
Kitty Kelley
One of my theme songs is that if you can’t do it in a test tube, don’t do it.
Martin Fleischmann
How you treat the helpless is the real test of morality. Lots of people are flunking that test big time.
Thomas Sowell
The happiest she’d ever been was with him, and the saddest. Was that the true test of love?
Stewart O’Nan
We’re all put to the test… but it never comes in the form or at the point we would prefer, does it?
David Mamet
Life is a series of tests; but if you pass your tests, you look back upon them as good experiences.
Peace Pilgrim
Fame, we may understand, is no sure test of merit, but only a probability of such; it is an accident, not a property of man.
Thomas Carlyle
The final test of greatness in a CEO is how well he chooses a successor and whether he can step aside and let the successor run the company.
Peter Drucker
It should be heart-breaking to every American that we have a frontrunner in the presidential race that suggests there will be a religious test for anybody who wishes to come to our shores.
Joe Biden
First you date the songs, and then you get engaged and then you marry them. They have to stand the test of time, because they are going to be yours for the next 20, 30, 40 years. So you had better choose right.
Marc Anthony
There was a lot of protest after Bravo, from countries like India, for example. India was the first country which came forward and proposed at the United Nations that all of these nuclear tests should be stopped, that there should be a complete ban on nuclear testing.
Martha Smith
In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson.
Tom Bodett
I am a really bad test taker. I can get straight As in school, but I get nervous on test.
Mary-Kate Olsen
If Death Grips isn’t the fourth horseman of a hip-hop apocalypse, its music at least tests the genre’s threshold of extremity: The trio’s abrasive, jittery style teeters on the edge of palatability, and plays toward a morbid curiosity to which many listeners won’t succumb.
Anthony Fantano
SAT tests are designed by huge panels of experts in education and psychology who work for years to design tests in which not one single question measures any bit of knowledge that anyone might actually need in the real world. We should applaud kids for getting lower scores.
Dave Barry
The problem of individual differences and group differences would not be made to disappear by abolishing tests. One cannot treat a fever by throwing away the thermometer.
Arthur Jensen
A lot of people think growth hormone is going to increase the size of your internal organs which bloats the waistline. So I went and had a battery of tests where they actually measure all of your internal organs and mine were all normal.
Dorian Yates
Sometimes you fail your chemistry test and other times it’s explosive.
Bruce Campbell
Today the real test of power is not capacity to make war but capacity to prevent it.
Anne O’Hare McCormick
Lawyers rarely test their power, or the power they promote, against this simple pragmatic question: “Will it do good?” When challenged about the expanding reach of the law, the lawyer answers, “Why not?
Lawrence Lessig
Opportunity is responsibility. It is a fleeing conjunction of circumstances. It is a test as well as a privilege. To be always equal to the opportunity, – what more could be said of the highest success in life?
Lilian Whiting
The surest test if a person be sane, is if she accepts life whole, as it is.
Together with my advisor, Manuel Blum, I co-invented CAPTCHAs, or computer-generated tests that humans are routinely able to pass but that computers have not mastered (they are the squiggly computer letters that are prevalent across the web).
Luis von Ahn
Test Cricket is not a light-hearted business, especially that between England and Australia.
Donald Bradman
Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true.
Gautama Buddha
The mystics ask you to take nothing on mere belief. Rather, they give you a set of experiments to test in your own awareness and experience. The laboratory is your own mind, the experiment is meditation.
Ken Wilber
Funnily enough, when I originally went in for my screen test, that set was already built.
Gerard Butler
I travel a lot with my students. We go on the road and even learn about things like doing your laundry and managing your time. And maybe that’s not on the test at the end of the year, but it’s in the test of life and that’s why my classroom is successful.
Rafe Esquith
I want my books to last, to stand the test of time, and to do that I focus on the forces that shape the subject – the cultural and sociological geography – to capture them in a way that will explain them no matter what they are doing.
David Maraniss
What needs to be debated is whether IQ tests, as currently designed, are fit for purpose, and capable of measuring the changing nature of intelligence in the 21st century among generations brought up with digital technology and different learning habits.
David Olusoga
If testing costs more than not testing, then don’t test.
Kent Beck
Time of difficulty test our faith, our fortitude and our strenght. During these times, the level of our imaan becomes manifest
Yasmin Mogahed
The test of an outfielder’s skill comes when he has to go against the fence to make a catch.
Joe DiMaggio
But when I looked at a lot of the questions they had on them army tests, I just didn’t know the answers. I don’t even know how to start after finding the answers. That’s all.
Muhammad Ali
I think of it all as a test. This is a moral examination that one has to pass… to stand up against such social evils.
Kailash Satyarthi
A pretty good test of a man’s religion is how it affects his pocketbook.
Francis James Grimke
I love talking about the challenges [Newark, NJ] has because of the way they are always brilliantly disguised as opportunities.. .the biggest global challenge that there is is a challenge of the spirit, a challenge of our vision, a challenge and a test of our ideals, of who we SAY we are GOING TO BE.
Cory Booker
Very often the test of one’s allegiance to a cause or to a people is precisely the willingness to stay the course when things are boring, to run the risk of repeating an old argument just one more time, or of going one more round with a hostile or (much worse) indifferent audience.
Christopher Hitchens
You can’t test courage cautiously, so I ran hard and waved my arms hard, happy.
Annie Dillard
My parents split up when I was 16, and, while Mum came to a few Tests, Dad didn’t make many. So I was glad he was at Lord’s.
Glenn McGrath
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
The best test of the quality of a civilization is the quality of its leisure.
Irwin Edman
I can pass a drug test in eight days with herbal cleansers. I drink 10 pounds of water and sweat out 10 pounds of water every day. I’ll be fine.
Nick Diaz
I never write. Never! I do not even remember if I can write … This is a true freestyle in general. I put a beat, I said some stuff, I retain ideas, I do it again, with a particular intonation, I test, and especially I record live.
Young Thug
Reducing children to a test score is the worst form of identity theft we could commit in schools.
Stephen Covey
Don’t believe something just because you want to, and don’t embrace an idea just because you’ve always believed it. Believe what is biblical. Test all your assumptions against the precious words God gave us in the Bible.
Francis Chan
Politics deserves much praise. Politics is a preoccupation of free men, and its existence is a test of freedom. The praise of free men is worth having, for it is the only praise which is free from either servility or condescension.
Bernard Crick
Our civilization, bequeathed to us by fierce adventurers, eaters of meat and hunters, is so full of hurry and combat, so busy about many things which perhaps are of no importance, that it cannot but see something feeble in a civilization which smiles as it refuses to make the battlefield the test of excellence.
James Joyce
I believe this thought, of the possibility of death – if calmly realised, and steadily faced would be one of the best possible tests as to our going to any scene of amusement being right or wrong.
Lewis Carroll
Weekend planning is a prime time to apply the Deathbed Priority Test: On your deathbed, will you wish you’d spent more prime weekend hours grocery shopping or walking in the woods with your kids?
Hal Borland
I think people should be given a test much like driver’s tests as to whether they’re capable of being parents! It’s an art form. I talk a lot. And I think a lot. And I draw a lot. But never in a million years would I have been a parent. That’s just work that’s too hard.
Maurice Sendak
[The tests agreed] that I was at higher risk than the average person for Type 2 diabetes, which is what my lab works on. In fact, some of the things they were testing for were variants that we had discovered.
Francis Collins
I guess now that I think back, I used to play priest and be a funny priest. I don’t know, I grew up in such a Catholic family that I kind of liked to test the boundaries a little bit and I think I had fun watching my mom laugh.
Jenny McCarthy
Read. Read. Read. Read. Read great books. Read poetry, history, biography. Read the novels that have stood the test of time. And read closely.
David McCullough
Everyone has tests in their life. They come in lots of different forms. I had two or three together, which definitely challenged me as a person and as a sportsman. The big thing is how you react to those situations. You want to come out positively at the other end, and that’s what I focused on doing.
Brian O’Driscoll
There are two tests in life, more important than any other test. On Monday morning, when you wake up, do you feel in the pit of your stomach you can’t wait to go to work? And when you’re ready to go home Friday afternoon, do you say, ‘I can’t wait to go home?’
Chuck Schumer
God tests and proves us by the common occurrences of life. It is the little things which reveal the chapters of the heart.
Ellen G. White
We shall not cease from exploring,
And the end of our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
T. S. Eliot
Congratulations to Sachin Tendulkar for becoming the first person ever to score 50 test hundreds, absolute superstar
Rohan Bopanna
Know verily that the purpose underlying all these symbolic terms and abstruse allusions, which emanate from the revealers of Gods holy cause, hath been to test and prove the peoples of the world; that thereby the earth of the pure and illuminated hearts may be known from the perishable and barren soil.
No one I know of has ever had this experience-where you had to sit and wait and wait for a DNA test to come back just so you can write the last page of the book.
Joseph Wambaugh
I had to have tests for cancer and other diseases – it wasn’t much fun. I was getting a shooting pain in my hip and we didn’t know what it was. First of all we thought it was an old injury. But they didn’t find anything wrong, even though when I had an ultrasound test it was all really swollen.
Freddie Ljungberg
You’ll get humbled right before you’re blessed. It’s just a test to make sure you can handle what’s next.
Tony Gaskins
Now is the time to be bold. It is easy when the wind is at your back. But the real test is now when the wind is in our face. That’s when we find out if we are tough enough. Inspired enough, committed enough.
Karl Rove
I think this reason why girls don’t do well on multiple choice tests goes all the way back to the Bible, all the way back to Genesis, Adam and Eve. God said, ‘All right, Eve, multiple choice or multiple orgasms, what’s it going to be?’ We all know what was chosen.
Rush Limbaugh
I did not like prizes at school. I didn’t like tests or exams, or the 11+, or O-levels. Later I hated B.A.s and M.A.s. The reason I hated them is that I don’t like being tested, failed or falsely praised by anyone.
Billy Childish
Teachers assess to test; educators assess to assist learning.
Dave Carter
Senator [Sam] Brownback talked about those with disabilities that are destroyed in the womb because of a genetic test that is sometimes wrong. I would put forward that we all have disabilities.
Tom Coburn
There is no test of literary merit except survival, which is itself an index to majority opinion.
George Orwell
Unlike many Sixties rockers,[Bob] Dylan sang about getting old, about broken dreams. His return to roots music pointed the way for many of his contemporaries to forsake trying to sound ‘current’ and to instead make music that would stand the test of time.
Jay Michaelson
The greatest test of life is obedience to God.
Ezra Taft Benson
The test of a quarterback is where his team finishes.
Paul Brown
There is no discipline in the world so severe as the discipline of experience subjected to the tests of intelligent development and direction.
John Dewey
There are certain aspects that cross over from ODIs to Tests. Tactically, they are quite different and you are a lot longer in the game. It is more like a war of attrition and you think tactically as bowlers.
Mitchell Starc
It seems to me that this is the true test for poetry: – that it should go beneath experience, as prose can never do, and awaken an apprehension of things we have never, and can never, know in the actuality.
Ellen Glasgow
Democracy’s real test lies in its respect for minority opinion.
Ellery Sedgwick
And using that – the birth of a religion, it suggests that you have got two tests. You have the test of weakness. When you’re weak, do you compromise, do you bend, do you give in, do you accommodate? And then the test of strength. When you’re strong, are you merciful, are you generous, or are you cruel?
Salman Rushdie
I formed the hypothesis that each of us could have achieved our objectives without the terrible loss of life. And I wanted to test that by going to Vietnam.
Robert McNamara
Accounts are not quite settled between us,” said she, with a passion that equaled my own. “I can love, and I can hate. You had your choice. You chose to spurn the first; now you must test the other.
Arthur Conan Doyle
A student undergoing a word association test was asked why a snowstorm put him in mind of sex. He replied frankly: “Because everything does.”
Honor Tracy
I’m arrogant enough to tell you that I’m smart enough to have scored higher on my Scholastic Aptitude Test than any US president whose SAT score has been made public. I even scored higher than ex-presidential candidate Al Gore, whose SAT score was so high, it was deemed as potentially off-putting to voters.
Jim Goad
Do we eagerly long for the coming of Christ? Or do we want him to wait while our love affair with the world runs its course? That is the question that tests the authenticity of faith.
John Piper
Happiness comes when we test our skills towards some meaningful purpose.
John Stossel
When I wrote ‘Kidulthood,’ I didn’t even know there was going to be a ‘Kidulthood.’ I just wanted to test myself to see if I could write a script.
Noel Clarke
You are free to smile in the midst of massive tests and challenges, knowing that you have chosen to play this game, and that you have dominion over all the appearances of earth.
Richard Bach
The first – the most obvious test of a true social entrepreneur – is are they possessed, really possessed by an idea.
Bill Drayton
When i’ve done camera test, after we’ve shot and I’ve seen the monitor with the glasses (wearing a Kimono) and looking by myself in 3D. Oh my god. Especially for a Samurai film. I’ve never seen that. It’s kind of a culture shock.
Hiroyuki Sanada
I never went to auditions or screen tests. I just got cast.
Bob Christo
If the abstract rights of man will bear discussion and explanation, those of women, by a parity of reasoning, will not shrink from the same test.
Mary Wollstonecraft
It is the test of a novel writer’s art that he conceal his snake-in-the-grass; but the reader may be sure that it is always there.
Anthony Trollope
But the problem remains two fold: the need for recognition that low thyroid function very often can provoke menstrual problems, and the need for recognition, too, that hypothyroidism may be present despite laboratory tests suggesting it is not.
Broda Otto Barnes
The world judge of men by their ability in their profession, and we judge of ourselves by the same test: for it is on that on which our success in life depends.
William Hazlitt
What a test that is: more than devotion, admiration, passion. If you long and long for someone’s company you love them.
Iris Murdoch
The banks should give a full, fair, and accurate account of their financial positions and they are failing that test.
Kevin Warsh
When we used to play, we thought no one can break Sunil Gavaskar’s record. No one could think about 50 Test centuries at that time. This is certainly a big knock under the circumstances, better than the 200s and 300s.
Kapil Dev
No virtue can be real that has not been tried. The gold in the crucible alone is perfect; the loadstone tests the steel, and the diamond is tried by the diamond, while metals gleam the brighter in the furnace.
Pedro Calderon de la Barca
What I teach our people is that, as a leader, you have four key roles apart from people management. First is to champion the grand vision. Two, install systems and a culture to run experiments. The third thing is to savour surprises. The fourth thing is that even a leader’s ideas need to be subjected to tests.
Scott Cook
QUESTION: Do you know what the greatest test is? ANSWER:Do you still get excited about what you do when you get up in the morning?
David Halberstam
No human investigation can claim to be scientific if it doesn’t pass the test of mathematical proof.
Leonardo da Vinci
Our view has been that unless stringent environmental tests can be passed by would-be frackers, then no fracking should take place.
Barry Gardiner
Every since my wife, Adri, got pregnant with our now-eight-month-old daughter, Alicia, I regularly get asked what my plans are for feeding her. How can someone who writes about food and tests recipes for a living meet the picky and precise needs of an infant without losing his mind?
J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
To test a man’s ego, simply ask him a complicated question. A good person will never be afraid to admit they don’t know the answer to something. And only when a man has fully dismantled his ego, can he begin to be truly good.
Suzy Kassem
Sometimes I listen to the radio and I can’t believe some of the stuff that I’m hearing that everyone is loving. So it’s a task that we’ve got to conquer and we have to make sure that we pass the test.
A renewed commitment to the freedom and opportunity of our people is the touchstone of our time. In this new century, where tests are many and challenges change with the shifting of the wind, we must hold fast to the principles that have made our nation the envy of the world.
Bill Owens
As a reward of their clean living and good habits these great stars have been able to withstand the rigorous test of stamina and physical exertion and have thus successfully extended their most remarkable careers over a period of many strenuous years.
Major Taylor
It’s true: lives do drift apart for no obvious reason. We’re all busy people,we can’t spend our time simply trying to stay in touch. The test of a friendship is if it can weather these inevitable gaps.
William Boyd
If you run, you are a runner. It doesn’t matter how fast or how far. It doesn’t matter if today is your first day or if you’ve been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.
John Bingham
Aristotle and many others say men have more teeth than women; it is no harder for anyone to test this than it is for me to say it is false, since no one is prevented from counting teeth.
Andreas Vesalius
The only true test of loyalty is fidelity in the face of ruin and despair.
Eric Felten
I cannot believe that the most delicious things were placed here merely to test us, to temp us, to make it the more difficult for us to capture the grand prize: the safety of the void. To fashion of life such a petty game is unworthy of both men and gods.
Tom Robbins
Mankind has always made too much of its saints and heroes, and how the latter handle the fuss might be called their final test.
Wilfrid Sheed
Every time you love someone, you put not just your faith in them, but your faith in everything to the test.
David Levithan
I’ve seen God. He bats at No. 4 for India in tests
Matthew Hayden
I have two cousins with juvenile diabetes. They both contracted the disease before the age of 5, and it was so heartbreaking watching them go through daily blood tests and injections. It is such a difficult disease to live with and requires constant attention; a tough thing to explain to a child.
Amy Robach
To give space when what one most yearns for is closeness, that is both the great test and great tragedy of love.
Simone de Beauvoir
That just gives sort of the democracy an opportunity to test ideas, for those who lost to catch their breath, regain energy, re-energize themselves and then get back in the arena, and then we’ll make some more progress in the future.
Barack Obama
The true test of faith is how we treat those who can do nothing for us in return.
Dillon Burroughs
The way to test a man’s sincerity is to serve him a bad cup of coffee. If he doesn’t comment, he is not to be trusted.
Lilian Jackson Braun
Well, it’s such a record that you can only compare it with Bob Beamon’s long-jump world record set in the 1968 Olympics in Mexico. At that time it seemed that it would never be broken. Tendulkar’s 50 Test centuries is one such records which doesn’t look like being surpassed
Sunil Gavaskar
I don’t know what’s funny and what’s not so I test out all of my material in front of audiences.
Daniel Tosh
It was once said that the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.
Hubert H. Humphrey
Pleasure is Nature’s test, her sign of approval.
Oscar Wilde
Have you ever played a video game that didn’t have escalating levels of difficulty? Well, life can feel like play, too, when we purposefully engage in activities that demand we test and develop our skills.
Brendon Burchard
I love test screenings. Some directors don’t, I know. But I love it. I think it’s because I come from the theatre and in the theatre, previews are where you really have to listen to the audience and really feel how they’re responding. I found our test screenings incredibly useful.
Stephen Daldry
The test of a writer is whether you want to read him again years after he should by the rules be dated.
Raymond Chandler
I pass the test that says a man who isn’t a socialist at 20 has no heart, and a man who is a socialist at 40 has no head.
William J. Casey
Fail at love, and the other tests don’t matter.
Richard Bach
I think test screenings with an audience are useful because they have no dog in the fight, they just say how they feel.
Brian Helgeland
A good test case is a test case that has a high probability of detecting an undiscovered error, not a test case that show that the program works correctly.
Glenford Myers
I pretty much keep everything; we have drawers full of samples and tests and every old catalogue and magazine.
Patricia Piccinini
The true test of a man’s spirituality is not his ability to speak, as we are apt to think, but rather his ability to bridle his tongue.
R. Kent Hughes
The resolution approved today presents the Iraqi regime with a test – a final test.
George W. Bush
When India conducted nuclear tests in 1974, I wrote a letter to then-Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto from Holland and offered my services for Pakistani nuclear programme.
Abdul Qadeer Khan
As a result of the strategic patience policy, we now have North Korea testing four times an atomic weapon; they’ve violated numerous United Nations sanctions, U.S. sanctions by launching ballistic missile tests.
Cory Gardner
The severest test of character is not so much the ability to keep a secret as it is, when the secret is finally out, to refrain from disclosing that you knew it all along.
Sydney J. Harris
As I look back over fifty years of ministry, I recall innumerable tests, trials and times of crushing pain. But through it all, the Lord has proven faithful, loving, and totally true to all his promises.
David Wilkerson
I have friends in politics who really put the friendship to the test through their behavior.
Martin Schulz
The personal qualities necessary for attaining office are practically the opposite of those demanded by the office itself. The trouble with the damn system is that it selects for the skills needed to get elected, and nothing else. A test that you can only pass by cheating can’t possibly select honest people.
James P. Hogan
HGH testing is happening in Olympics. The science is there. It is a valid test.
Roger Goodell
It [preparing for a role] is just like studying for a test and making the test easy; it makes it a lot of fun, especially when people enjoy it.
Gina Carano
Love without trust does not exist. Love is a strength of trust. Trust is the test of love. When you love, you trust each other. When you don’t, you don’t. Don’t camouflage the word “love” and not trust each other.
Harbhajan Singh Yogi
In 1993, 89 of the ‘Fortune’ top 100 companies were administering the Myers-Briggs test to their employees. The philosophy behind personality tests is that they don’t want you to be in the wrong kind of job. The tests have been completely exposed as nonsense.
Barbara Ehrenreich
The best way that a man could test his readiness to encounter the common variety of mankind would be to climb down a chimney into any house at random, and get on as well as possible with the people inside. And that is essentially what each one of us did on the day that he was born.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
I will not be taking a paternity test, ever!
Oprah Winfrey
In most cases the favorable price performance will be accompanied by a well-defined improvement in the average earnings, in the dividend, and in the balance-sheet position. Thus in the long run the market test and the ordinary business test of a successful equity commitment tend to be largely identical.
Benjamin Graham
Fate is a funny character. She puts obstacles in your path to see what character ye have. Life isn’t fair,life is a test.
Melissa Francis
For athletes, the Olympics are the ultimate test of their worth.
Mary Lou Retton
My kids were always my test audience. I’d take home the dailies and show them what we’d been filming that day.
James Bobin
Our creationist detractors charge that evolution is an unproved and unprovable charade — a secular religion masquerading as science. They claim, above all, that evolution generates no predictions, never exposes itself to test, and therefore stands as dogma rather than disprovable science. This claim is nonsense.
Stephen Jay Gould
I will have no Parsons around me but such as drink deep, ride to Hounds and caress the Wives and Daughters of their Parishioners.A Virtuous Parson does nothing to test or exercise the Faith of his Flock.
Aldous Huxley
There’s only one good test of pornography. Get twelve normal men to read the book, and then ask them, ”Did you get an erection?” If the answer is ”Yes” from a majority of the twelve, then the book is pornographic.
W. H. Auden
I don’t want my children to feel the same sense of failure I did growing up because they’re not good at passing tests.
Ben Fogle
I passed a typing test and became a member of the staff of Rear Adm. Newton.
Jack Adams
Musically I try to connect a common bridge between such exhilarating feelings as performing at the Acropolis, to the emotions each and every one of us feel everyday. In the end, a good melody will always stand the test of time.
Bradley Joseph
The soul shares not the body’s test.
Charles Robert Maturin
I have very real concerns about the civil liberties implications of ultimately requiring every resident to submit themselves for compulsory fingerprinting or some other biometric test.
Patricia Hewitt
Sarah Newton
For all time to come, the freedom and purity of the press are the test of national virtue and independence. No writer for the press, however humble, is free from the burden of keeping his purpose high and his integrity white.
John Boyle O’Reilly
The greatest thing for me football-wise is that it’s a test of will.
Troy Polamalu
I think I’ve failed every test I’ve ever taken. If there was a failure I would have been it.
Lisa Marie Presley
Students read for tests and because their parents ask them to, but I think it’s very important to tell children that you can read for fun, too, and to understand human spirit. It builds empathy.
Adora Svitak
I think the West needs to get away from the habit of regarding the regime’s nuclear tests and ballistic launches as isolated provocations timed to generate maximum attention.
Brian Reynolds Myers
I am a coward, basically, but one of the things about acting is that you are always putting yourself through yet another test.
Samuel West
But I think my mistakes became the chemistry for my miracles. I think that my tests became my testimonies.
T. D. Jakes
It seemed to Scobie that life was immeasurably long. Couldn’t the test of man have been carried out in fewer years? Couldn’t we have committed our first major sin at seven, have ruined ourselves for love or hate at ten, have clutched at redemption on a fifteen-year-old deathbed?
Graham Greene
This is perhaps the greatest moral challenge Jesus left us: We all do pretty well in love when the persons we are loving are warm and gracious, but can we be gracious and mellow in the face of bitterness, jealousy, hatred, withdrawal? That’s the litmus test of love.
Ronald Rolheiser
Our decision about energy will test the character of the American people and the ability of the President and the Congress to govern this Nation. This difficult effort will be the moral equivalent of war, except that we will be uniting our efforts to build and not to destroy.
Jimmy Carter
The real test of any church or religion is the kind of men it makes.
David O. McKay
I watched Baeyer activating magnesium with iodine for a difficult Grignard reaction; it was done in a test tube, which he watched carefully as he moved it gently by hand over a flame for three quarters of an hour. The test tube was the apparatus to Baeyer.
Richard Willstatter
You have T20 and that also plays a part in some of the shots batsmen play. You see guys playing the same shots in T20s and Tests and are sometimes lucky to get away with it.
Viv Richards
The thing about witchcraft,” said Mistress Weatherwax, “is that it’s not like school at all. First you get the test, and then afterward you spend years findin’ out how you passed it. It’s a bit like life in that respect
Terry Pratchett
A modern mathematical proof is not very different from a modern machine, or a modern test setup: the simple fundamental principles are hidden and almost invisible under a mass of technical details.
Hermann Weyl
Look out for your baby or your friend, of course. That is easy. The test of moral fiber is to stick up for those you relate to least, understand minimally, and do not think are that much like you.
Ingrid Newkirk
Longevity can’t be the only test of love.
Bette Greene
Heroes put to the test, keeping a promise, doing their best.
Waylon Jennings
Test cricket tests your ability as a cricketer but also bring out your true character.
James Anderson
If kids are studying for a test, they’re not going to learn anything. We all know that from our own experience.
Noam Chomsky
Everybody in this life has their challenges and difficulties. That is part of our mortal test. . . . Peace comes through hope.
James E. Faust
At the end, the key thing is you've got to live with yo

At the end, the key thing is you’ve got to live with yourself. That’s the real test. Everything else is fleeting.
Nicolas Berggruen
The severest test of work today, is not of our strategies, but of our imaginations and identities.
David Whyte
[Donald Trump] is in the process of building up an organization. And well, we’ll have to see how that works. And it’ll be a test, I think, for him and the people that he’s designated to be able to execute on his vision.
Barack Obama
One good test is worth a thousand expert opinions.
Wernher von Braun
Identify with excellence, put your name on your work, and both your work and name will stand the test of time.
Denis Waitley
… the image of feeling created by artists, in every kind of art — plastic, musical, poetic, balletic — serves to hold the reality itself for our labile and volatile memory, as a touchstone to test the scope of our intellectual constructions.
Susanne Katherina Langer
I grew up in Los Angeles. I still remember when I was a junior in high school studying for the SATs. I had my job – I was actually a production assistant on a film – but on weekends, I would finish my prep tests on the beach.
Cody Horn
The whole idea of timing tests is a century old, from a scientist who thought speed and ability were tightly correlated, which they are not.
L. Todd Rose
God is able to take the mess of our past and turn it into a message. He takes the trials and tests and turns them into a testimony.
Christine Caine
To be gentle is the test of a lady.
Owen Feltham
He told me once that there was no better faith than a wounded faith and sometimes I wonder if that is what he was doing all along –trying to wound his faith in order to test it–and I was just another stone in the way of his God.
Colum McCann
God created men to test the souls of women.
Robert A. Heinlein
The best tests of my Christian growth occur in the mainstream of life, not in the quietness of my study
Charles R. Swindoll
Spirituality leaps where science cannot yet follow, because science must always test and measure, and much of reality and human experience is immeasurable.
Tests of love always end badly.
Melanie Thernstrom
..the true test of spirituality [is] in the freedom to live among people compassionately….Prayer frees us to be controlled by God.
Richard J. Foster
Housekeeping in common is for women the acid test.
Andre Maurois
Psychopaths view any social exchange as a ‘feeding opportunity,’ a contest or a test of wills in which there can be only one winner. Their motives are to manipulate and take, ruthlessly and without remorse.
Robert D. Hare
The transfer of power is always a test of the constitutional system, a test of its strength.
Vladimir Putin
I ceased cleansing my body. Two weeks before the test I stopped eating food with nutritional value. A week before, I stopped going to the bathroom. I did it in my pants. My pants got crusted up.
Ted Nugent
I apply the Abraham Lincoln test for moral casuistry: ‘If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong.’ Well, then, if waterboarding does not constitute torture, then there is no such thing as torture.
Christopher Hitchens
Dude, you’re such a geek. And that’s coming from an overweight Star Trek fan who scored a 5 on the AP Calculus test. So you know your condition is grave
John Green
First follow Nature, and your judgment frame
By her just standard, which is still the same:
Unerring nature, still divinely bright,
One clear, unchanged, and universal light,
Life, force, and beauty must to all impart,
At once the source, and end, and test of art.
Alexander Pope
Most of my friends from Columbia are going on to get advanced degrees. And why not? A Ph.D. is the new M.A., a master’s is the new bachelor’s, a B.A. is the new high school diploma, and a high school diploma is the new smiley-face sticker on your first-grade spelling test.
Megan McCafferty
Good tests kill flawed theories; we remain alive to guess again.
Karl Popper
The test of the moral quality of a civilization is its treatment of the weak and powerless.
Jerome Frank
No distinction in kind rather than degree between ourselves and the chimps? No distinction? Seriously, folks? Here is a simple operational test: the chimpanzees invariably are the one behind the bars of their cages.
David Berlinski
The SAT is not perfect. We all know smart, knowledgeable people who do badly on standardized tests. But neither is it useless. SAT scores do measure both specific knowledge and valuable thinking skills.
Virginia Postrel
The greatest test of faith is when you don’t get what you want, but still you are able to say Thank You Lord.
John Hagee
When I get an idea I start at once building it up in my imagination. I change the construction, make improvements and operate the device in my mind. It is absolutely immaterial to me whether I run my turbine in my thought or test it in my shop. I even note if it is out of balance.
Nikola Tesla
I think it’s time to have a celebration of life and renew our vows. And this time we’re going to write the vows because they’re going to mean a lot more. We certainly put the ‘in sickness and in health’ vow to the test the last year and half.
Bill Rancic
From a young age, pupils are put under immense amounts of pressure in high-stakes exams. Often, they’re made to feel like their whole future depends on how they perform in these narrowly focussed tests.
Layla Moran
I think there will be one overarching coach for Tests and one-day cricket. I think you need one person in control and in charge of that environment. Also it’s important for people to know I am not going to be playing a tracksuited role. The execution of strategy is over to the captain and coach as it always has been.
Andrew Strauss
I do believe that when your child does poorly on a test, your first step should not necessarily be to attack the teacher or the school’s curriculum. It should be to look at the idea that, maybe, the child didn’t work hard enough.
Amy Chua
Obedience makes us progressively stronger, capable of faithfully enduring tests and trials in the future. Obedience in Gethsemane prepared the Savior to obey and endure to the end on Golgotha.
Robert D. Hales
Go for the edges. Challenge yourself and your team to describe what those edges are, and then test which edge is most likely to deliver the marketing results you seek.
Seth Godin
Trials are sent to some so as to take away past sins, to others so as to eradicate sins now being committed, and to yet others so as to forestall sins which may be committed in the future. These are distinct from the trials that arise in order to test men in the way that Job was tested.
Maximus the Confessor
Whether statistics be an art or a science… or a scientific art, we concern ourselves little. It is the basis of social and political dynamics, and affords the only secure ground on which the truth or falsehood of the theories and hypotheses of that complicated science can be brought to the test.
Adolphe Quetelet
I wish I’d done better for England. I only played three Tests and three One Day internationals. You have to take your chances and, for whatever reason, I didn’t.
Jonathan Agnew
The real test of love is when a person—including you—can know your weaknesses, your stupidities and your smallnesses, and still love you.
Dossie Easton
Based on hundreds of tests conducted, a good headline can be as much as 17 times more effective than a so-so headline. And this is with exactly the same body copy!
Ted Nicholas
The real test in golf and in life is not in keeping out of the rough, but in getting out after you are in.
Zig Ziglar
Perhaps the surest test of an individual’s integrity is his refusal to do or say anything that would damage his self-respect.
Thomas S. Monson
The test of a good idea is its ability to last through a hangover
Jimmy Breslin
When they took me to do the camera test for the vampire make up, after they put the prosthetic on, I went though the entire process, I went back to my trailer and I looked in the mirror and I smiled.
Julie Benz
A hybrid human-robot mission to investigate an asteroid affords a realistic opportunity to demonstrate new technological capabilities for future deep-space travel and to test spacecraft for long-duration spaceflight.
Buzz Aldrin
Practice is an ever-fresh, challenging flow of work and play in which we continually test and demolish our own delusions; therefore, it is sometimes painful.
Stephen Nachmanovitch
Dhoni is one of the greatest captain I have ever seen. Dhoni’s record is praiseworthy. Twenty-two Test wins is not a small achievement. And the success against Australia has come against the backdrop of the not-so-good times he went through in the last two years
Sourav Ganguly
My message is get into what you love and really want to do and can do. And there are these tests you can take for that. All the colleges have them.
Julian Robertson
I think everybody has a moment in their career where you have to test whether it was right or wrong. We’ve all been there. I’ve looked back at performances of my own, where only you know if it is something you want to repeat. As long as you know when it’s not right that you don’t repeat it all the time.
Jessie J
History had been man’s effort to accomodate himself to what he could not do. Amereican history in the 20th century would, more than ever before, test man’s ability to accomodate himself to all the new things he could do.
Daniel J. Boorstin
Hillary Clinton is a corrupt career politician who has recklessly handled classified information in an attempt to avoid accountability and put American lives at risk, including those of my former colleagues. She fails the basic tests of judgment and ethics any candidate for president must meet.
Evan McMullin
With the Klitschkos, though, unless someone comes around, they can stay where they are forever! The heavyweight division is lackluster, and it will be until someone comes along who can test them.
Gerry Cooney
You will have no test of faith that will not fit you to be a blessing if you are obedient to the Lord. I never had a trial but when I got out of the deep river I found some poor pilgrim on the bank that I was able to help by that very experience.
A. B. Simpson
One of the tests of the civilization of people is the treatment of its criminals.
Rutherford B. Hayes
I think that everybody, even if they had the best high school experience, there was something about high school. Whether you dropped a pass, or whether you flunked the test, or you didn’t go to the prom.
Neal H. Moritz
Test scores aren’t perfect, but having a test score for math or reading or other things that we can objectively measure is a meaningful component that makes a lot of sense.
Bill Gates
What I do . . . the path I tread . . . it brings some choices that test me hard.
Juliet Marillier
The goal is to win the World Cup for India but my personal goal is representing India in Tests.
Yuzvendra Chahal
[Chemistry] laboratory work was my first challenge. … I still carry the scars of my first discovery-that test-tubes are fragile.
Edward Teller
A good test of a relationship is how a person responds to the word ‘no.’ Love respects ‘no,’ control does not.
Henry Cloud
She failed her drivers test. She couldn’t get used to the front seat. It took her four lessons to learn to sit up.
Rodney Dangerfield
But all categories of art, idealistic or realistic, surrealistic or constructivist (a new form of idealism) must satisfy a simple test (or they are in no sense works of art): they must persist as objects of contemplation.
Herbert Read
The test of friendship is assistance in adversity, and that too, unconditional assistance, Co-operation which needs consideration is as a commercial contract and not friendship. Conditional co-operation is like adulterated cement which does not bind.
Mahatma Gandhi
The real test of our character is when the bottom falls out.
I’m in favour of drug tests, just so long as they are multiple choice.
Kurt Rambis
The strength of a friendship can be measured by the weight of the burden it’s willing to share. (If you want to test this just ask someone to help you move.)
Richard Paul Evans
If you want a testimony, you are going to have a test.
Joyce Meyer
The best training is to learn to accept everything as it comes, as from Him whom our soul loves. The tests are always unexpected things, not great things that can be written up, but the common little rubs of life, silly little nothings, things you are ashamed of minding one scrap
Amy Carmichael
In any nation, the hypocrites do not become apparent except during times of fitnah (severe tests and hardships).
Yasmin Mogahed
The test of an author is not to be found merely in the number of his phrases that pass current in the corner of newspapers… but in the number of passages that have really taken root in younger minds.
Thomas Wentworth Higginson
At college age, you can tell who is best at taking tests and going to school, but you can’t tell who the best people are. That worries the hell out of me.
Barnaby Keeney
For the true student, everything that happens in daily life is a test.
Karlfried Graf Durckheim
The test of a great golfer is his ability to recover from a bad start.
P. G. Wodehouse
The test of good education is seeing how it behaves in a fight.
George Bernard Shaw
Scientific research and other studies have demonstrated that arts education can enhance American students’ math and language skills and improve test scores which in turn increase chances of higher education and good jobs in the future.
Thad Cochran
Being an Olympian is the ultimate test of one’s sporting ability.
Mark Russell
How would I behave in a situation that caused me to summon the essence of my character? The tragedy inspired me to test myself. I wanted to reveal to myself who I was: the kind of person who died, or the kind of person who overcame circumstances to help himself and others
Aron Ralston
I would expect an extremely high percentage of the chickens would test positive. Our poultry industry clients wouldn’t like that.
Bryan Shelton
We have a battery of tests planned at regular intervals including DNA methylation analysis, gene expression profile changes, telomere length (both TAT and QTRAP measured) and various other metrics that will highlight positive changes to aging biomarkers.
Liz Parrish
Missionary service is not only a test of faith but a real test of character.
ElRay L. Christiansen
I have a Ph.D. in cell biology. And that’s really manual labor. I mean, experimental science, you do it with your hands. So it’s very different. You’re out there in a lab, cleaning test tubes, and it just wasn’t that fascinating.
Barbara Ehrenreich
Chang Tzu tells us of a persevering man who after three laborious years mastered the art of dragon-slaying. For the rest of his days, he had not a single opportunity to test his skills.
Jorge Luis Borges
The stories on standardized tests don’t have one author, therefore they can never authentically be in the first person. Imagine that! Everywhere, there are these tests that have been written by multiple people.
Alejandro Zambra
I swear by swadeshi as it affords occasion for ample exercise of all our faculties and it tests every one of the millions of men and women, young and old.
Mahatma Gandhi
A truly great structure, one that is meant to stand the tests of time, never disregards its environment. A serious architect takes that into account. He knows that if he wants presence, he must consult with nature.
Christopher Plummer
The practicing of loving kindness toward one’s enemy is the ultimate test of one’s own spiritual attainment.
Dalai Lama
See first, think later, then test. But always see first. Otherwise you will only see what you were expecting. Most scientists forget that.
Douglas Adams
We meet all life’s greatest tests alone.
Agnes Macphail
I’m afraid that – not necessarily deliberately, but consistently – I’ve made a kind of laboratory out of my life, where I mix the stuff in the test tubes to create explosions – possibly resulting in interesting by-products. I mean, not deliberately – I’d be crazy to deliberately do that – or maybe not.
Jay McInerney
When I write a song, I always start on acoustic guitar, because that’s a good test of a song, when it’s really open and bare. You can often mislead yourself if you start with computers and samples and programming because you can disguise a bad song.
Martin Gore
The ultimate test of a moral society is the kind of world that it leaves to its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
The mathematical framework of quantum theory has passed countless successful tests and is now universally accepted as a consistent and accurate description of all atomic phenomena.
Erwin Schrodinger
Perhaps measuring animal intelligence by comparing it to human intelligence isn’t the best litmus test.
Ingrid Newkirk
Weddings are giant Rorschach tests onto which everyone around you projects their fears, fantasies, and expectations – many of which they’ve been cultivating since the day you were born.
Susan Jane Gilman
The Republican Party will never again be a majority party until we regain the confidence of the American people. I believe there is room for disagreement within the party, and we should not have litmus tests.
Todd Tiahrt
