Coincidence Quotes

Boobs are near the center of the universe, until you turn twenty-five or so. Which is also when young mens auto insurance rates go down. This is not a coincidence.

Jim Butcher

Stressed spelled backwards is desserts. Coincidence? I think not!

Unknown

It's no coincidence that female interest in the sport of baseball has increased greatly since the ballplayers swapped those wonderful old-time baggy flannel uniforms for leotards.

Mike Royko

Bread deals with living things, with giving life, with growth, with the seed, the grain that nurtures. It is not coincidence that we say bread is the staff of life.

Lionel Poilane

With reference to the narrative of events, far from permitting myself to derive it from the first source that came to hand, I did not even trust my own impressions, but it rests partly on what I saw myself, partly on what others saw for me, the accuracy of the report being always tried by the most severe and detailed tests possible. My conclusions have cost me some labor from the want of coincidence between accounts of the same occurrences by different eyewitnesses, arising sometimes from imperfect memory, sometimes from undue partiality for one side or the other. The absence of romance in my history will, I fear, detract somewhat from its interest; but I shall be content if it is judged useful by those inquirers who desire an exact knowledge of the past as an aid to the interpretation of the future, which in the course of human things must resemble if it does not reflect it. My history has been composed to be an everlasting possession, not the showpiece of an hour.

Thucydides

Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence.

Erma Bombeck

People are entirely too disbelieving of coincidence. They are far too ready to dismiss it and to build arcane structures of extremely rickety substance in order to avoid it. I, on the other hand, see coincidence everywhere as an inevitable consequence of the laws of probability, according to which having no unusual coincidence is far more unusual than any coincidence could possibly be.

Isaac Asimov

The specific effect of the MBA has been an explosion of enrollments in economics, the prebusiness major. The prebusiness economics major is not motivated by love of the science of economics but by love of what it is concerned with. There is nothing else quite like this perfect coincidence between science and cupidity elsewhere in the university.

Allan David Bloom

The necessary unity of power and wisdom is only a coincidence for the ancients, i.e., dependent on chance completely out of the philosophers control. Knowledge is not in itself power, and though it is not in itself vulnerable to power, those who seek it and possess it most certainly are. Therefore the great virtue for the philosophers in their political deeds was moderation. They were utterly dependent on the prejudices of the powerful and had to treat them most delicately.

Allan David Bloom

This isn't coincidence. There's no such thing.

Brandon Boyd

Villari took no notice of them because the idea of a coincidence between art and reality was alien to him. Unlike people who read novels, he never saw himself as a character in a work of art.

Jorge Luis Borges

COINCIDENCE You werent paying attention to the other half of what was going on.
