Result Quotes

Democracy is, by the nature of it, a self-canceling business; and it gives in the long run a net result of zero.

Thomas Carlyle

Our life always expresses the result of our dominant thoughts.

Soren Kierkegaard

Clever men will recognize and tolerate nothing but cleverness; every authority rouses their ridicule, every superstition amuses them, every convention moves them to contradiction. Only force finds favor in their eyes, and they have no toleration for anything that is not purely natural and spontaneous. And yet ten clever men are not worth one man of talent, nor ten men of talent worth one man of genius. And in the individual, feeling is more than cleverness, reason is worth as much as feeling, and conscience has it over reason. If, then, the clever man is not mockable, he may at least be neither loved, nor considered, nor esteemed. He may make himself feared, it is true, and force others to respect his independence; but this negative advantage, which is the result of a negative superiority, brings no happiness with it. Cleverness is serviceable for everything, sufficient for nothing.

Henri-Frdric Amiel

A man is not rightly conditioned until he is a happy, healthy, and prosperous being; and happiness, health, and prosperity are the result of a harmonious adjustment of the inner with the outer of the man with his surroundings.

James Allen

Isn't history ultimately the result of our fear of boredom?

Emil Cioran

The impact of climate change on agriculture could result in problems with food security and may threaten livelihood activities upon which much of the population depends.

Ian Pearson

A spirit of innovation is generally the result of a selfish temper and confined views. People will not look forward to posterity, who never look backward to their ancestors.

Edmund Burke

Happiness is not a reward / it is a consequence. Suffering is not a punishment / it is a result.

Robert Green Ingersoll

A scholar always treads on the path of righteousness and as result becomes successful.

Rig Veda

Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort.

John Ruskin

Good breeding is the result of good sense, some good nature, and a little self-denial for the sake of others.

Lord Chesterfield

All that we are is the result of what we have thought.

Buddha

Misery is almost always the result of thinking.

Joseph Joubert

Strategic missiles are precisely the weapons which can deliver a decisive blow against the enemy's primary targets his armed forces, and first of all, his strategic nuclear attack weapons. As a result of such a strike, the political objectives of a war can be attained in the first days of the conflict.

Sergei Semenovich Biriuzov

Nothing ever comes to one, that is worth having, except as a result of hard work.

Booker T. Washington

For twenty years programming languages have been steadily progressing toward their present condition of obesity; as a result, the study and invention of programming languages has lost much of its excitement. Instead, it is now the province of those who prefer to work with thick compendia of details rather than wrestle with new ideas. Discussions about programming languages often resemble medieval debates about the number of angels that can dance on the head of a pin instead of exciting contests between fundamentally differing concepts. Many creative computer scientists have retreated from inventing languages to inventing tools for describing them. Unfortunately, they have been largely content to apply their elegant new tools to studying the warts and moles of existing languages.

John Warner Backus

By the very act of arguing, you awake the patient's reason; and once it is awake, who can foresee the result

C.S. Lewis

A craftsman knows in advance what the finished result will be, while the artist knows only what it will be when he has finished it. But it is unbecoming in an artist to talk about inspiration; that is the reader's business.

Wystan Hugh Auden

We are so obsessed with doing that we have no time and no imagination left for being. As a result, men are valued not for what they are but for what they do or what they have - for their usefulness

Thomas Merton

You may never know what results come of your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result.

Mahatma Gandhi

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work learning from failure.

General Colin Powell

You cannot force ideas. Successful ideas are the result of slow growth. Ideas do not reach perfection in a day, no matter how much study is put upon them.

Alexander Graham Bell

Man is the result of slow growth; that is why he occupies the position he does in animal life. What does a pup amount to that has gained its growth in a few days or weeks, beside a man who only attains it in as many years.

Alexander Graham Bell

True prosperity is the result of well-placed confidence in ourselves and our fellow man.
