Result Quotes

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.

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

In all human affairs there are efforts, and there are results, and the strength of the effort is the measure of the result.

James Lane Allen

The end result of wisdom is... good deeds.

The Talmud

The outgrowth of conservation, the inevitable result, is national efficiency.

Gifford Pinchot

Double-thought: as you believe things that should be self-contradictory. This is generally the result of some kind of propaganda.
