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

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.
