In this post, you will find great Higher Quotes from famous people, such as Frank Harris, Keith Henson, Ralph Merkle, Johnny Weissmuller, Margaret J. Wheatley. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
Le Mans takes the best out of everyone. Winning is important but it’s not everything. It’s such a big and great event in motorsport. You do more kilometres in that one race than Formula One do in a season, and probably a higher average speed. We average about 220km/h including pitstops and cover nearly 5000km.
It has been said that love is a function of communication. I believe that to be true. I believe, by extension, that human understanding is a function of communication. And the better human beings understand one another, the higher the level of functioning.
The most important thing is to just do it. If I work at a higher level I have responsibility to do better than what I’ve done before. Sometimes the best happens – beyond possibility. Just do it. Can’t worry about it.
The real issue for the public is to figure out whichnarrative do we want. We can have a bigger government, if that’s the public’s choice. It’ll just require higher taxes on every American. Do you want that, or do you want smaller government, smaller taxes?
When this sad war is over we will all return to our homes, and feel that we can ask no higher honor than the proud consciousness that we belonged to the Army of the Potomac.
What we define as a bubble is any kind of debt-fueled asset inflation where the cashflow generated by the asset itself – a rental property, office building, condo – does not cover the debt incurred to buy the asset. So you depend on a greater fool, if you will, to come in and buy at a higher price.
I don’t regretgiving up football for acting. I love football and am very proud I played for Morton. But the truth is, I wasn’t going to get much higher in football. At the same time, I sensed I could go somewhere in acting. I’m 28, which is young for acting, whereas in football I’d now be near the end of my career.
One of the blessings that comes from paying a full tithing is developing faith to live an even higher law. To live in the celestialkingdom, we must live the law of consecration. There we must be able to feel that all we are and all we have belong to God.
In Great Britain the price of food is at a higher level than in any other country, and consequently, the British artisan labours at a disadvantage in proportion to the higher rate of his food.
A good team, like a good show, comes into being when the separate individuals working together create, in essence, another separate higher entity – the team – the show – which is better than any of those individuals can ever be on their own.
Gary David Goldberg
More debt interest, higher taxes, a smaller GDP. That is the Liberal plan.
I am here to give the American people some straighttalk about higher education. Some have said we might have cut financial aid for college students. The truth is we have expanded access to college for our neediest students through the record growth of the Pell grant program.
The older you get, the better you have to look, the higher you have to kick, the harder you have to work.
When I dive for a ball I’m not diving because it looksspectacular – I’m trying win the point. When I jump it’s because it’s easy for me to jump. I’m not being cocky but because I can jump higher than other people it looks more spectacular. Other playerssmash but I go higher so it looks different.
Higher education is not growing fast enough to meet the needs of Nevada.
James E. Rogers
The budgets are much higher now, it costs more to make a movie and the kids that go to see them are into instantgratification. They want things bigger and bigger. I don’t make those kind of movies. I make movies about relationships.
Clearly, those of us women who play football wish that there was more coverage. But it’s one of those things that happens. Every year the level is getting higher, and I think we surprise a lot of people when the world focuses its attention on the World Cup or the Olympics final.
I think that there’s something extremelybeautiful about the Olympic ideal and its motto – ‘Swifter, higher, stronger’ – it’s such a beautiful motto, and it celebrates everything which is the antithesis of death and dissolution and entropy.
By making college unaffordable and student loansunbearable, we risk deterring our best and brightest from pursuing higher education and securing a good-paying job.
India made a big mistake by signing up to TRIPS. With a population of 1.3 billion, India can’t afford a monopoly in healthcare. Monopolies lead to higher prices and we can’t allow them in a country like India with so much poverty and misery. It was like signing our own death warrant.
On the mountains of truth you can never climb in vain: either you will reach a point higher up today, or you will be training your powers so that you will be able to climb higher tomorrow.
The most valuable investment we can make is in our children’s education. When we make education a priority, we give our children opportunity. Opportunity to learn at higher levels than their parents were able to learn; to earn at higher levels than we were able to earn.
Honestly, I’m not a big person in terms of religion, but I really believe in nature. I feel like anytime you see anything beautiful in nature that’s the closest I’m ever going to get to God or a sense of a higher power.
I never woreflats: The higher the shoe, the better.
Why shouldn’t future generations and young Americans have the choice to earn a higher rate of return? Why shouldn’t they be able to own their own Social Security so that Congress can’t spend it on other things?
We are a country that lacksriches. The Jewishbrain, that’s what we have. Everything that we’ve had and will have in this country is the direct and clear product of higher education. If we harm this system, we will drastically decline and cease to exist.
Countries and states which have capital punishment have a much higher rate of murder and crime than countries that do not, so that makes sense to me, and the moral question – I struggle with it morally.
Some indeed have tears naturally, when the higher motion of the soul makes itself felt in the lower, or because God our Lord, seeing that it would be good for them, allows them to melt into tears. But this does not mean that they have greater charity or that they are more effective than others who enjoy no tears.
Life is suffering. Life is not resistance to suffering. The point of life is to suffer. This is why we’re here: We’re here to suffer. I believe in a higher power that compassionately allows suffering for us as a race, to grow and mature.
High heels weren’t always a girl thing. In the fifteen-hundreds, the ridingshoes of French noblemen were fitted with raised heels so that their feetstayed put in the stirrups. Over the next few decades, heels inched higher on dress shoes, particularly among men of privilege.
The latest research has revealed that women have a higher IQ than men.
Food fighters in Japan think of themselves as athletes. They have a higher recognition of the game and are constantly thinking about records. I probably won’t continue for long because it puts pressure on the body. But I am at the age where I can perform my best.
But the cause for which we fought was higher; our thought wider… That thought was our power.
I hate to say it, but the truth is that the upscale line is where I get respect as a designer. The higher the price range, the higher the respect level from the industry, even though it’s much easier to make a great $500 dress than a great $100 dress.
As a first-generation American, my parents expected that I would go on to have pretty tactical higher-education-type jobs – doctor, lawyer, engineer. Those were the three options. My dad was not at all open to the idea that there would not be a higher education in my future.
I started out doing things like ‘Flash Forward,’ where I was the girl-next-door, and then, I did a show called ‘Higher Ground,’ where I played this really mean, sarcastic girl. Then ‘Firefly’ happened, and everybody thought of me as this bubbly, sweet girl-next-door again.
Women in particular need to keep an eye on their physical and mental health, because if we’re scurrying to and from appointments and errands, we don’t have a lot of time to take care of ourselves. We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own ‘to do’ list.
People want to express themselves – that’s what fashion is for. You can go to Target and get something that Rodarte designed for $34, but would you want to go buy the higher version for $3,400? I think most people would say no.
Our great history has been that people came to Michigan because you didn’t have to have a college degree to get a good-paying job. Consequently, we have got a larger number of our population that right now are facingoutsourcing, et cetera, without higher or advanceddegrees.
If the breakingnews event has something to do with young people, specifically with MTV‘s audience, there was a higher chance that I would actually go cover it with a televisioncamera instead of just write the story myself and read it on the air.
Books are men of higher stature; the only men that speak aloud for future times to hear.
Reputation is fine but you have to keep justifying it. In a sense, it makes it harder because people’s expectations of you are higher. So, you have to fulfill those expectations. Or, try to exceed those expectations. But, it becomes more difficult as time goes on.
English girls’ schools today providing the higher education are, so far as my knowledge goes, worthily representative of that astonishing rise in the intellectual standards of women which has taken place in the last half-century.
If you believe in a higher power or if you believe in God, then I would suggest that you go to God and see if you can find some solutions. If you don’t believe in God, then try to be as honest with yourself as you possibly can… When I’ve chosen the light of God or self-honesty, my own misery has brought me to a solution.
I think it’s very important to emphasize that there are many, many different educational institutions in what we call higher education, and they educate an enormous diversity of students. I think all of those institutions have to define particular roles for themselves; they can’t do everything at once.
The happiest people I’ve found are in science. These people have three times the IQ – maybe I’m exaggerating. They have a higher IQ than I do. They love what they’re doing, they have a good family life, they’re satisfied.
‘Superman’ had nothing to do with the superhero or physical power. It’s a reference to the book ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra,’ by Friedrich Nietzsche, who wrote about the evolution of consciousness to reach a higher superman state.
I like to engage the public because when I was in high school, I had all these questions about anti-matter, higher dimensions and time travel. Every time I went to the library, every time I asked people these questions, I would get some strange looks. Nobody could answer any of these questions.
I feel the presence of a higher power. I believe that what you give is what you get. It’s universal law. I believe in the power of prayer and of words. I’ve learned that when you predict that negative things will happen, they do.
There’s tons of creative people in television that have one failure after another, and they just step up higher. I could never get over that. When I had a failure, there was no such thing as just getting over it.
Anyone can accomplish anything and rise to the challenge as long as they are willing to work with others, to let go of the personal agenda, to reach a higher goal, and to do what is right for the common good.
Of course, looking tough on inflation is part of any central banker’s job description: if investors believe that inflation is going to get out of control, you end up with higher interest rates and capital flight, and a viciouscirclequickly ensues.
She said I did good and I think she was happy with what I did. She just wants me to get my higher Start Value vault, which I’ll be competing at Trials and, hopefully, the Olympics.
The true way to be humble is not to stoop until you are smaller than yourself, but to stand at your real height against some higher nature that will show you what the real smallness of your greatness is.
There is definitely a need for increasing capacity in higher education; a large part of this is being met in the technical education segment by the private sector and in the non-technical by the state sector. In the public sector, we will do whatever we can afford.
But I believe we have a higher level of mentality within us, but we have to use the power in the right way.
Let’s stop telling people from modestbackgrounds that their education is capped at a certain level because of where they grew up. In fact I can attest to the fact that all this attitude does is put people off wanting to test the waters and apply, or push themselves towards higher education at all.
Research has shown that middle-income wage earners would benefit most from a large reduction in corporatetax rates. The corporate tax is not a rich-man’s tax. Corporations don’t even pay it. They just pass the tax on in terms of lower wages and benefits, higher consumer prices, and less stockholder value.
They were often the first students in their family to go to college and the very idea of higher education was still foreign to them. They had to make a conscious and often difficult decision to come to college.
For myself, if I am to stake all I have and hope to be upon anything, I will venture it upon the abounding fullness of God – upon the assurance that, as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are His ways higher than our ways, and His thoughts than our thoughts.
Henry Norris Russell
In politics, all candidates and volunteers are ambassadors to voters who expect better than parroting the politics of personal destruction. Being able to find common ground at the higher ground is what separates the stateswoman from the stuntwoman.
I’ve always been too hard on myself to behave like I’ve arrived or even to enjoy whatever success I’ve had. I’ve always envisioned myself higher than where I was and I still do. With each success I think, ‘That’s nice but I’m supposed to go there!’
In June 2005, mortgage rates were at 40-year lows, and risk premiums on mortgage securities were at all-time lows. Once the banks migrated to the subprime area, there was little else that could be done to sendhousing prices higher.
American men do have genuine reasons for anxiety. The traditional jobs that many men have filled are disappearing, thanks to automation and outsourcing. The jobs that remain require, in most cases, higher education, which is increasingly difficult for non-affluent families to afford.
No stream rises higher than its source. What ever man might build could never express or reflect more than he was. He could record neither more nor less than he had learned of life when the buildings were built.
The higher amount you put into higher education, at the federal level particularly, the more the price of higher education rises. It’s the dog that never catches its tail. You increase student loans, you increase grants, you increase Pell grants, Stafford loans, and what happens? They raise the price.
Physical bravery is an animal instinct; moral bravery is much higher and truer courage.
They don’t want to be reminded that there is an authority higher than the authority of the state.
The problem with Mr. Obama is that you get more regulation and it’s a disincentive for businessmen to hire people. You probably also get higher taxes, so in terms of the economy, he is very negative in my view.
I don’t write directly on to the computer because I don’t think well facing forward with fingers on a keyboard. I think better looking down holding a pen. And the concentration quotient of pen and paper is higher than when I’m moving words around on screen.
Sometimes people who are Jewish are held to a higher standard which sometimes we take great pride in.
This is what the election of 2010 was about. We didn’t send conservatives to Washington to flirt with Democratproposals for higher taxes and more debt. We sent leaders to stop them.
Education is the key to the future: You’ve heard it a million times, and it’s not wrong. Educated people have higher wages and lower unemployment rates, and better-educated countries grow faster and innovate more than other countries. But going to college is not enough. You also have to study the right subjects.
Increased revenues, meaning higher taxes, will be a central element of any successful long-term budget plan, and President Obama is right to insist that the wealthy – the slice of America that has come through the recession in by far the best financial health – should provide those funds.
I learned that I suffered from bipolar II disorder, a less serious variant of bipolar I, which was once known as manicdepression. The information was naturally frightening; up to 1 in 5 people with bipolar disorder will commit suicide, and rates may even be higher for those suffering from bipolar II.
Yeah, well when I first started working, it was $5 a show; it was probably a little higher by the time I got to my own show, but I remember that they put me under contract at $100 a week, which to me was really an astronomical price.
Most people have an aversion to risk, my college economicsprofessor told me. Which means they have to be rewarded to take on that risk. The higher the risk, the higher the possible payout has to be for people to jump.
In theater or movies you see either ‘I’m religious’ or ‘I’m an atheist.’ I’ve never seentoo muchdiscussion of ‘I believe there’s a higher power but I’m hesitant to reach out to him because I don’t know if I’m worthy of his attention.’
I’d really love to see a business model for higher education going forward that is actually affordable, that uses modern technology to reach scale and quality and that really reimburses the services rendered in a way that’s meaningful to everybody.
We can do better in higher education. And it is more than just technology. It’s also an attitude on the part of faculty. We need to think through how we can produce a better quality product at less cost.
Then I became aware of the site as the traffic for it became higher. The most recent contact was this girl Lily. She wanted me to shoot her for the site and she actually showed up. There a lot of people who contact me to do a shoot for a website then you never hear from them.
Instead of focusing on growing jobs and reigniting our economy, President Obama focused on growing government and tried to remake the United States into the image of the debt-laden countries of Europe. His approach has been more spending, more regulation, and higher taxes.
The 1990 ‘Goodwill Games’ can be another indication that the television world is not divided between commercial and cable. If the viewerthinks highly of our efforts… they will have a higher opinion of cable television and TBS.
If man limits himself to a satisfied animal existence, and asks from life only what such an existence can give, the higher values of life at once disappear.
To measure prices by a currency that is called by the same names as gold, but that is really inferior in value to gold, and then – because those prices are nominally higher than gold prices – to say that they are inflated, relatively to gold, is a perfectabsurdity.
We have to ensure politically that what’s doable can indeed by translated into law, but what’s not doable mustn’t become European law. Otherwise, the auto industry will work somewhere with higher carbonemissions – and we can’t want that.
If you’re constantly pushing yourself higher, higher, the law of averages – not to mention the myth of Icarus – predicts that you will at some point fall. And when you do, I want you to know this, remember this: There is no such thing as failure.
We’re still growing into that place of higher consciousness; we are becoming a global conscience. The idea is to unravel the onion and let go of the ego and evolve to that place where you perceive everything to be a beautiful experience rather than a daunting experience.
If you’re early on in your career and they give you a choice between a great mentor or higher pay, take the mentor every time. It’s not even close. And don’t even think about leaving that mentor until your learning curvepeaks.
If you work for the federal government, the average salary is $7,000 higher than the private sector. Something’s wrong with that, when you’re making more money working for the government than you can working in the private sector.
The more we reduce ourselves to machines in the lower things, the more force we shall set free to use in the higher.
Anna C. Brackett
What we reliably find is that people’s perseverance scores are actually higher than their passion scores, and I think it really does get to the fact that working hard is hard, but maybe finding your passion is even more difficult.
People always joke that ‘dog’ spells ‘god‘ backwards. They should consider that it might be the higher power coming down to see just how well they do, what kind of people they are. The animals are right here, right in front of us. And how we treat these companions is a test.
I wanted to give money to people like this woman so that they would be free from the moneylenders to sell their product at the price which the markets gave them – which was much higher than what the trader was giving them.
And then, when I thought about joining the Air Force, flyingseemed like a natural extension of the motorcycling experience. You’re going faster, higher. You’re operating a machine that’s a lot more powerful than you are.
In a higher phase of communist society… only then can the narrowhorizon of bourgeois right be fully left behind and society inscribe on its banners: from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.
As I said a moment ago, there is no higher priority in our budget, or certainly in the budgets of the past few years, than providing for what is needed for the protection and security of our country and support of our troops.
I do not inveigh against higher education, I simply maintain that the sort of education the colored people of the South stand most in need of, is elementary and industrial. They should be instructed for the work to be done.
Timothy Thomas Fortune
Generosity is nothing else than a craze to possess. All which I abandon, all which I give, I enjoy in a higher manner through the fact that I give it away. To give is to enjoy possessively the object which one gives.
If we continue to print new paychecks at the rate we’ve been adding them, that mitigates a lot of the damage of higher gasoline prices.
Jerry A. Webman
The truth is everybody does it from time to time. People dialtelephone numbers and they get a wrong number only to find that they’ve read the last two digits backwards. Everybody does it, but dyslexics have this tendency to a higher degree.
Let me state what the official IPCC prediction is: Sea levels could go up as much as three-quarters of a meter in this century, but there is a reasonable probability it could be much higher than that.
I am going to be contradictory to myself many times for the simple reason that I am trying to bring all the religions to a higher synthesis. Different approaches have to be joined together. I am creating an orchestra.
Bernanke and company are trying to reflate the economy with almost statedobjective of inflation at 2 percent and higher in order to provide some type of safety margin for a future recession. That’s where they want to go.
I just felt that space was the next thing coming in aviation. It was higher, faster. It had the risk.
Trying to build a spaceship by making an aeroplane fly faster and higher is like trying to build an aeroplane by making locomotives faster and lighter – with a lot of effort, perhaps you could get something that more or less works, but it really isn’t the right way to proceed.
Homicide through gun violence is the leading cause of death among young African American males in the United States. If people look a certain way, they have a higher tendency of dying, of having their lives taken away.
I think that listening to music or creating music is a spiritual undertaking, so the process of creating music, you know, involves listening. It involves sensitivity, it involves humility, you know, and then also it’s something which is higher than words.
It’s not like a corporate job where the more you accumulate on your resume and the more hours you put in, the higher up you get; it’s simply not the case. That being said, if I had known that and known what kind of career I’d get into, I still would have pursued it.
If you build a 70,000-seat stadium it will cost much more than double to build than a 35,000-seater. The higher the seat the more expensive it is to construct.
I expected to die. At no time before the trial did I expect to escape with my life. Yet being executed in the gas chamber did not necessarily mean defeat. It could be one more step to bring the community to a higher level of consciousness.
If hackers, if anyone committing a criminal act, wants to reduce their risk, they obviously don’t involve anybody else. The greater the circle of people that know what you’re doing, the higher the risk.
Although being economics editor sounds impressive, it does not mean I actually edit anything. It mainly reflects two decades of title-inflation at the BBC, which has given ever more status to senior reporters, presumably because it is cheaper to do that than to offer higher pay.
I think I was very lucky to have grown up with an artist’s studio in the house. It was a kind of life that was possible. Yeah, it made it kind of harder because the standards were higher, but there was no pressure.
I was studying psychology honours and was very happy in that zone. I had dreams of pursuing higher education. When the first film happened and another one after that, I was not sure about sticking around in this career. It was never my dream.
Hispanic unemployment is higher than the national average and when the federal government is killing small businesses and killing jobs it is hurting the future of the Hispanic community and we need to carry that message.
With the issue of immigration, it’s very difficult because, although I don’t have anything against people from other countries, the higher the influx into England, the more the British identity disappears.
A lot of times, in our culture and our society, we put romantic love somehow on a higher plane than self-love and friendship love. You can’t do that. You have to honor and really fully invest in all these different loving relationships.
Employees who report receiving recognition and praise within the last seven days show increasedproductivity, get higher scores from customers, and have better safety records. They’re just more engaged at work.
I was told by the general manager that a white player had received a higher raise than me. Because white people required more money to live than black people. That is why I wasn’t going to get a raise.
In art, the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can imagine.
The coronation is a symbol of power, but it’s not a symbol for us the people. It’s a symbol for that person, who is a human, to become a higher being and become one with God. The church, the scepter, and the crown have been around forever. And the line of kings of England goes back thousands of years.
The United States is the most innovative country in the world. But our leadership could slip away if we fail to properly fund primary, secondary and higher education.
The mistake we have made in our lives is that over and over again we’ve run into the needful moment and then failed to learn its higher lesson. We don’t like needful moments and therefore we resist them.
With the sugar market hysteria, the people are obviously worried and expect higher inflation. When this hysteria subsides, which we’re probably observing, then I hope that people will also get less worried about the future of inflation.
I was a bit of a lost lamb in my twenties, trying to find my higher calling.
My failed corporate career became the fodder for the ‘Dilbert’ comic. Once it became clear I would not be climbing any higher on the corporate ladder, it freed me to mockmanagers without worrying that it would stall my career. Most failures create some sort of unplanned freedom. I took full advantage of mine.
I don’t get jealous of other girls, because I was… raised in a cloninglab to be the perfect woman for Hugh M. Hefner, so, other than the fact that my I.Q.’s probably a little higher than he would like, I have nothing to worry about.
So many people condemn me for risk taking, but I find it sort of hypocritical because everybody takes risks. Even the absence of activity could be viewed as a risk. If you sit on the sofa for your entire life, you’re running a higher risk of getting heart disease and cancer.
Sufis teach that we first must battle and destroy the evil within ourselves by shining upon it the good within, and then we learn to battle the evil in others by helping their higher selves gain control of their lower selves.
A diet that relies heavily on meat production results in higher emissions than a typicalvegetarian diet. Different individuals will make different choices. However, the debate about climate change should not be dumbed down to a single slogan, such as ‘give up meat to save the planet.’
Nature, too, shall live its own life. We must beware not to disrupt it with the color of our houses and interior fittings. yet we should not attempt to bring nature, houses, and human beings together into a higher unity.
