But is it?

Giles Fraser
He had a better mind and a more rigorous temperament than me; he thought logically, and then acted on the conclusion of logical thought.

Enver Masud
If you’re too sloppy, then you never get reproducible results, then you never get reproducible results, and then you never can draw any conclusions; but if you are just a little sloppy, then when you see something startling, you nail it down. So I called it the “Principle of Limited Sloppiness”.
Max Delbruck
There were theoretical elements in the subjection of women and it is not possible to avoid the conclusion that a large contribution was made to them by the Church. In part this was a matter of its hostile stance towards sexuality.

Lou Gerstner
I’ll always write about what’s going on in my life and the reason for that is it’s not actually because I’m so fascinated with myself, it’s because I can’t think. I can’t think like have thoughts in my head and think them through and come to a conclusion. It’s like math for me.
Augusten Burroughs

Emily Mortimer
I’m always looking for the monster. Not even just in horror. I want them in everything. Just give me the monsters. Logical conclusions don’t satisfy. Monsters satisfy, absolutely.

Theodore Sturgeon
You cannot reach a correct conclusion if you begin with an incorrect assumption
Herbert W. Armstrong

To admit one’s own presuppositions and to point out the presuppositions of others is therefore to maintain that all reasoning is, in the nature of the case, circular reasoning. The starting-point, the method, and the conclusion are always involved in one another.
Cornelius Van Til
Apparently, a cleaner at Tate Britain… threw out a bag of rubbish, accidentally we are told, that was part of an exhibition supposedly emphasizing ‘the finite existence of art’… The cleaner evidently had no time to question the relationship of his or her being to the rubbish bag, and reached the right conclusion.
Semir Zeki
I’ve kind of come to the conclusion that what passes for realism in movies has nothing to do with reality and that my stuff is more realistic than that.
Charlie Kaufman
It is the mark of an educated mind to expect that amount of exactness which the nature of the particular subject admits. It is equally unreasonable to accept merely probable conclusions from a mathematician and to demand strict demonstration from an orator.
I think about the trends at the moment in the planet and how it looks for my grandchildren. I don’t panic over it, even though rationally maybe I should. I have faith that these terrible trends will change, and they will not go to their logical conclusions of climate change, militarism, pollution, overpopulation.
Robert Thurman
Not only in order to act morally, but even to formulate theoretical questions, devise experiments, choose which ones to perform and what conclusions to draw from then – we must presuppose that we are free. That’s the sense in which it is true that for Kant “we must assume we are free.”
Allen W. Wood
There are times I almost think I am not sure of what I absolutely know. Very often find confusion in conclusion I concluded long ago. In my head are many facts that, as a student, I have studied to procure. In my head are many facts of which I wish I was more certain I was sure.

George Bernard Shaw
Those who have no power to judge of past times but by their own, should always doubt their conclusions
Samuel Johnson
Until kids decide, ‘I am a miracle. I am unique. There is no one else exactly like me,’ they can never draw the conclusion, ‘Because I’m a miracle, I will never harm another person who’s a miracle like me.’ In this slippery world, they all need something to hang on to.
Marva Collins

Rene Magritte
There’s no question in my mind that it was C.I.A. sanctioned, and most – many Latin American investigators have come to the same conclusion. Of course, we never heard about that in our country.
John Perkins

Hugh Nibley
As a result of my study, I came to the conclusion that a common supreme authority was undesirable.
Fredrik Bajer
It’s Fitzgerald’s thin-but-durable urge to affirm that finally makes Gatsby worthy of being our Great American Novel. Its soaring conclusion tells us that, even though Gatsby dies and the small and corrupt survive, his longing was nonetheless magnificent.
Maureen Corrigan

Murray Bookchin
The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out… without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable.

Satoru Iwata
I just think we shouldn’t judge her, or anyone, without tryo g to understand them first. That maybe we should get the full story before jumping to conclusions. Crazy notion, I know.

George Bernard Shaw
Conclusion 2: There’s nothing more demonic than two bored twins. ~Signed Tamaki
Bisco Hatori
On TV, stories and events are finalized in 30 or 60 minutes, or neatly tied up after a season or two. The best stories are the ones that force us to come to our own conclusions and to explain why we believe in our conclusions.

Simon Newcomb
Thimerosal is commonly used as an antiseptic/preservative in vaccines in the range of 1:10,000 to 1:20,000. Welsh’s and Hunter’s 1940 findings, applied to current thimerosal use in vaccines, lead to the conclusion that thimerosal completely inhibits phagocytosis in blood, one of the body’s most vital immune defenses!
Jamie Murphy
In matters of the intellect, do not pretend that conclusions are certain which are not demonstrated or demonstrable. That I take to be the agnostic faith, which if a man keep whole and undefiled, he shall not be ashamed to look the universe in the face, whatever the future may have in store for him.
Thomas Huxley
Love is nothing if it is not spontaneous. It cannot be a conclusion of reasoning.
Meher Baba
[..] and there are tons of people I hate so much that I wouldn’t mind taking them out. But killing them wouldn’t get me anywhere – that’s the conclusion I always come to. If I’m going to pay for it in the end, I might as well let them live.

Casey Legler
The power of generalizing ideas, of drawing comprehensive conclusions from individual observations, is the only acquirement, for an immortal being, that really deserves the name of knowledge.
Mary Wollstonecraft
I recognize out of the box that I am not the establishment candidate. There’s nothing about me that would have anybody draw the conclusion that I am somehow preordained for anything.
Andrew Gillum
I dream of a collaboration that will become so complete that, often, the poet will think as musician and the musician as poet, so that the work resulting from this union will not be the random conclusion of a series of approximations and concessions, but the harmonious synthesis of two aspects of the same thought.

To pray for them that have done scathe to us.
William Shakespeare
I’ve come to the conclusion that the government needs to impose price controls on tuition increases – and so, I think, has President Obama.
Timothy Noah

Erwin Rommel
The man who is intoxicated with life does not pass judgment, does not seek to come to a conclusion, does not impose his message on the world.

Niels Henrik Abel
But for all those who don’t want the Queen there are easily as many who don’t want a President and even more who certainly would not want one if they knew who it would be.

Dalton Camp
Nothing before had ever made me thoroughly realise, though I had read various scientific books, that science consists in grouping facts so that general laws or conclusions may be drawn from them.

Charles Darwin
The only conclusion you can draw from the real historical movement is that by and large, in day-to-day life, what Lenin called trade union consciousness dominates the working class. I would call it elementary class consciousness of the working class.
Ernest Mandel
I came to the conclusion that there is an existential moment in your life when you must decide to speak for yourself; nobody else can speak for you.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
But with man the case is otherwise, in that when logic leads to any humiliating conclusion, the sole effect is to discredit logic.

I have thought about the nature of this creative process and have reached a somewhat aberrant conclusion. I don’t understand it and I don’t think anyone else does either.
William Beck
The studio is a laboratory, not a factory. An exhibition is the result of your experiments, but the process is never-ending. So an exhibition is not a conclusion.
Chris Ofili
Once again you’ve put your keen and penetrating mind to the task and as usual come to the wrong conclusion!
J. K. Rowling
I don’t believe Vladimir Putin is a killer, a threat to France, to others in this region. Nothing Vladimir Putin has done would make me reach that conclusion.
Marine Le Pen
If the constitutional process is not brought to a successful conclusion before the European elections, then the whole process might run out of steam.
Giorgio Napolitano
After my study of today’s church, my conclusion is that the church is politely bored with God.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
I have epiphanies all the time, because I’m always thinking. I’m a thinker. I’m always writing poetry, I’m always coming to conclusions.
Chrisette Michele
It will be my birthday on Tuesday. Last year, I reached the painful conclusion that there wasn’t enough time left to read every book ever written. This year, my gloomy realisation is even more painful – I will not be able to correct everyone’s mistakes before I depart.
Daniel Finkelstein
We are not certain, we are never certain. If we were we could reach some conclusions, and we could, at last, make others take us seriously.
In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.
Benjamin Franklin
Every human life had its pattern that had to be worked out slowly to its ultimate conclusion.
Irving Stone
Always be suspicious of conclusions that reinforce uncritical hope and follow comforting traditions of Western thought.
Stephen Jay Gould
The usual false conclusions of mankind are these: a thing exists, therefore it has a right to exist.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Create or perish is the eternal mandate of nature. Be constructive or become frustrated is an equal demand. You cannot escape the conclusion that whatever this thing is which is seeking expression through everything, it can find satisfactory outlet only through constructive and life-giving creativeness.
Ernest Holmes
The so-called Beat Generation was a whole bunch of people, of all different nationalities, who came to the conclusion that society sucked.
John Clellon Holmes
I think that my job is to observe people and the world, and not to judge them. I always hope to position myself away from so-called conclusions. I would like to leave everything wide open to all the possibilities in the world.
Haruki Murakami
The simpler the insight, the more profound the conclusion.
Janna Levin
Conversations I have had with school principals and students lead me to the same conclusion-that…there is an evil and growing habit of profanity and the use of foul and filthy language.
Gordon B. Hinckley
‘The Return Of The King’ has a conclusion.
Peter Jackson
Hey. Sometimes to conclusions.
Carl Hiaasen
Mind is a machine for jumping to conclusions
Daniel Kahneman
How to get over the river was the bother. At last, after thinking a heap about it, I came to the conclusion that I always did: that the boldest plan is the best and safest.
Wild Bill Hickok
I don’t want my kids to grow up with no father like I did. I came to the conclusion a while ago that you can work until midnight and not be finished or you can work until 6 or 7 and not be finished. I decided I’d rather work until 6 or 7.
Benjamin Carson
When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than any talent for abstract, positive knowledge.
Albert Einstein
I like the character roles. Somewhere back there I really came to the conclusion in my mind that the difference between acting and stardom was major. And that if you become a star, people are going to go to see you. If you remain an actor, they’re going to go and see the story you’re in.
Morgan Freeman
It is hardly useful if you trustingly play through variation after variation from a book. It is a great deal more useful and more interesting if you take part actively in the analysis, find something yourself, and try to refute some of the author’s conclusions.
Mark Dvoretsky
In 13 years I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to play for second or third place.
Sergio Garcia
My study of the wild gorilla is not yet finished, and even when it is complete, it will contribute only a small part toward man’s understanding of his closest animal relatives, the great apes. But one conclusion is already clear: The gorilla is one of the most maligned animals in the world.
Dian Fossey
Men of science have made abundant mistakes of every kind; their knowledge has improved only because of their gradual abandonment of ancient errors, poor approximations, and premature conclusions.
George Sarton
I think my comedy’s probably the same as my art, which is kind of abstract, impressionist, emotional. You create an emotion and then you knock it down. You take something the way people are expecting it to go, and then give it a different conclusion.
Vic Reeves
The first cause of Absurd conclusions I ascribe to the want of Method.
Thomas Hobbes
I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s not really possible to help others.
Paul Cezanne
With the same honest views, the most honest men often form different conclusions.
Thomas Jefferson
Only a fool would try to compress a hundred centuries into a hundred pages of hazardous conclusions. We proceed.
Ariel Durant
Faith is not a conclusion you reach…it’s a journey you live.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
If the experimental physicist has already done a great deal of work in this field, nevertheless the theoretical physicist has still hardly begun to evaluate the experimental material which may lead him to conclusions about the structure of the atom.
Johannes Stark
If you give a meaning to certain things in my paintings it may be very true, but it is not my idea to give this meaning. What ideas and conclusions you have got I obtained too, but instinctively, unconsciously. I make the painting for the painting. I paint the objects for what they are.
Pablo Picasso
It is not often that nations learn from the past even rarer that they draw the correct conclusions from it. For the lessons of historical experience, as of personal experience, are contingent. They teach the consequences of certain actions, but they cannot force a recognition of comparable situations.
Henry A. Kissinger
but something always went wrong, and the relationship would end precisely at the moment when she was sure that this was the person with whom she wanted to spend the rest of her life. After a long time, she came to the conclusion that men brought only pain, frustration, suffering and a sense of time dragging.
Paulo Coelho
Fortunately, at the end of every season, we close the chapter and start anew. That’s the language of the series now, so it can organically come to a conclusion that we love.
J.H. Wyman
No, I don’t want you to draw any conclusion. I want you to listen to what I just said.
Joe Morgan
That’s what politics is. It’s the story of what’s happening, what does it mean, what’s the conclusion, who are the interesting characters?
John Dickerson
I believe it’s a wrong conclusion to draw that Indians can’t play spin bowling.
Shikhar Dhawan
No one shall deny me my own conclusions, nor my cat her reflective purr.
Irving Townsend
Even when I agree with the Twitterverse, I don’t like the means by which they reach the conclusion. It’s a really scary place. And I’m not comfortable with that.
Colin Cowherd
My conclusion is that there is no reason to believe any of the dogmas of traditional theology and, further, that there is no reason to wish that they were true. Man, in so far as he is not subject to natural forces, is free to work out his own destiny. The responsibility is his, and so is the opportunity.
Bertrand Russell
Obituaries were among my favorite to write because they have elements no other news stories have – a story from start to finish with a proper conclusion.
Tom Rachman
A split second later, my life flashed before my eyes, and I came to one important conclusion about it. It was fun while it lasted.
Darynda Jones
Motivation is when you get hold of an idea and carry it through to its conclusion, inspiration is the reverse. An idea gets hold of you and carries you where you are intended to go.
Wayne Dyer
Is there not a certain satisfaction in the fact that natural limits are set to the life of the individual, so that at the conclusion it may appear as a work of art?
Albert Einstein
I have come to the conclusion there is no point making anything if you’re not going to make people laugh and cry.
Tim Minchin
My objection to organized religion is the premature conclusion to ultimate truth that it represents.
Arthur C. Clarke
I have learned things in the dark that I could never have learned in the light, things that have saved my life over and over again, so that there is really only one logical conclusion. I need darkness as much as I need light.
Barbara Brown Taylor
Why don’t we want our children to learn to do mathematics? Is it that we don’t trust them, that we think it’s too hard? We seem to feel that they are capable of making arguments and coming to their own conclusions about Napoleon. Why not about triangles?
Paul Lockhart
We are afraid of ideas, of experimenting, of change. We shrink from thinking a problem through to a logical conclusion.
Anne Sullivan Macy
Socialism is the only answer and I urge all comrades to take this struggle to a victorious conclusion. Only this will free us from the chains of bigotry and exploitation.
Malala Yousafzai
I’m a disciplinarian. And I’ve always been disciplined. I like to be on time. If I have a job to do, I’m going to see it from its beginning to its conclusion. No excuses, no alibis. That’s how I run my life. It’s called self-tough love.
Jesse White
My only consolation for the failure of the Dardanelles was that God wished things to be prolonged in order to sicken mankind of war, and that therefore He had interfered with a project that would have brought the war to a speedier conclusion.
Winston Churchill
Words can be meaningless. If they are used in such a way that no sharp conclusions can be drawn.
Richard P. Feynman
The newspapers at one time said that I was dead but after carefully examining the evidence I came to the conclusion that this statement was false.
Bertrand Russell
I have come to this conclusion: if ‘sentimentality’ is lazy emotion, then the term itself is lazy criticism.
Andrew Sean Greer
The Christian community continues to exist because the conclusions of the critical study of the Bible are largely withheld from them.
Hans Conzelmann
Because I believe in my … proud citizen of this country should be doing. And that is to try and put in as much as he takes out. I guess it’s to the hard knocks of life that I attribute this conclusion.
Stompin’ Tom Connors
A man finds he has been wrong at every stage of his career, only to deduce the astonishing conclusion that he is at last entirely right.
Robert Louis Stevenson
I read what I write over and over and make corrections and improvements, until I reach the conclusion that the material deserves to stand on its own.
Siegfried Lenz
The Master was entirely free from four things: prejudice, foregone conclusions, obstinacy, and egoism.
Palestinians don’t really believe in a state of Israel. They, unlike a majority of Israelis, who have come to the conclusion that they can live with a two-state solution to be determined by the parties, the majority of Palestinians are still very reluctant, and they need to be pushed to get there.
Charles Schumer
Don’t observe yourself too closely. Don’t be too quick to draw conclusions from what happens to you; simply let it happen.
Rainer Maria Rilke
I propose to beg no question to shrink from no conclusion, but to follow truth wherever it may lead.
Henry George
I cannot and will not cut my conscience to fit this year’s fashions, even though I long ago came to the conclusion that I was not a political person and could have no comfortable place in any political group.
Lillian Hellman
The labor of thinking was so great to me, that having once come to a conclusion upon any subject, I would rather persist in it, right or wrong, than be at the trouble of going over the process again to revise and rectify my judgment.
Maria Edgeworth
We cannot say that if a child is badly nourished he will become a criminal. We must see what conclusion the child has drawn.
Alfred Adler
For desired conclusions, we ask ourselves, “Can I believe this?”, but for unpalatable conclusions we ask, “Must I believe this?
Thomas Gilovich
The study of theology, as it stands in Christian churches, is the study of nothing; it is founded on nothing; it rests on no principles; it proceeds by no authorities; it has no data; it can demonstrate nothing; and it admits of no conclusion.
Thomas Paine
It is often said that science must avoid any conclusions which smack of the supernatural.
Michael Behe
The danger that we have right now are people who get the same information as I do and, therefore, think they’ll reach the same conclusions that haven’t traded as long, don’t have bear claws up and down their backs like I do.
Jim Cramer
When my information changes, I alter my conclusions. What do you do, sir?
John Maynard Keynes
To be suspicious is not a fault. To be suspicious all the time without coming to a conclusion is the defect.
Lu Xun
No evidence is powerful enough to force acceptance of a conclusion that is emotionally distasteful.
Theodosius Dobzhansky
In his enigmatic and cunning story ‘The Crown of Feathers,’ Isaac Bashevis Singer refuses to produce uncontradictory evidence of God’s will but rather mixes all signals, jams the evidence, stalls every conclusion.
Edmund White
Any person without invincible prejudice who had the same experience would come to the same broad conclusion, viz., that things hitherto held impossible do actually occur.
Oliver Joseph Lodge
Sometimes, the only way to learn something really well is to revert to the state of mind of a novice and reawaken to the raw observations that you have accumulated instead of relying on the conclusions you have reached from the exogenous premises absorbed through teaching and bookish learning.
Erik Naggum
It is a most extraordinary thing, but I never read a patent medicine advertisement without being impelled to the conclusion that I am suffering from the particular disease therein dealt with in its most virulent form.
Jerome K. Jerome
In conclusion, the idea of direction on the part of the photographer has its greatest value when its processes are least discernible to the spectator.
Arthur Rothstein
The suicide arrives at the conclusion that what he is seeking does not exist; the seeker concludes that what he has not yet looked in the right place.
Paul Watzlawick
I’ve come to the conclusion that players want to be treated alike.
Tom Landry
Thus disbelief crept over me at a very slow rate, but at last was complete. The rate was so slow that I felt no distress, and have never since doubted even for a single second that my conclusion was correct.
Charles Darwin
[M]ost people offend God by passing judgment on the things others do, especially important people, not knowing the reasons why they are doing what they do; for when one does not know the primary cause of some matter, what conclusions can he draw from it?
Vincent de Paul
Skepticism is my nature, freethought is my methodology, agnosticism is my conclusion after 25 years of being in the ministry, and atheism is my opinion.
Jerry DeWitt
The conclusions of passion are the only reliable ones.
Soren Kierkegaard
Begin thus from the first act, and proceed; and, in conclusion, at the ill which thou hast done, be troubled, and rejoice for the good.
A further aspect I should like to discuss is what I call the practice of infinite escape clauses. I believe we developed this practice to avoid facing the conclusion that the probability of self-reproducing state is zero. This is what we must conclude from classical quantum mechanical principles as Wigner demonstrated
Sidney W. Fox
The biggest mistake is an over-reliance on data. Managers will say if there are no data they can take no action. However, data only exist about the past. By the time data become conclusive, it is too late to take actions based on those conclusions.
Clayton Christensen
There is no difference between science and art when it comes to creativeness, productiveness, to come to conclusions and to formulations.
Josef Albers
When I was younger, I’d get very empirical with myself. “I have a hypothesis about myself. I’ll put myself in a situation, see what happens, then I’ll draw a conclusion based on the empirical evidence. Hypothesis: I can play basketball.” So I’d try. “Conclusion: I cannot play basketball.”
Demetri Martin
A few scattered accounts, collected and combined together, may lead us to two certain conclusions: 1. That all the American Indians are one kind of people; 2. That they are the same as the people in the northeast of Asia.
Ezra Stiles
Of course all such conclusions about appropriate actions against the rich and powerful are based on a fundamental flaw: This is us, and that is them. This crucial principle, deeply embedded in Western culture, suffices to undermine even the most precise analogy and the most impeccable reasoning.
Noam Chomsky
Logic is something the mind has created to conceal its timidity, a hocus-pocus designed to give formal validity to conclusions we are willing to accept if everybody else in our set will too.
Carl L. Becker
Sometimes you didn’t really arrive at a conclusion about your life, you just discovered that you already had.
Guy Gavriel Kay
Drawing general conclusions about your main weaknesses can provide a great stimulus to further growth.
Alexander Kotov
I’ve been asked many times if I considered myself a narcissist, so I looked up the real meaning of the word, and I came to the conclusion that indeed I am one. I think of myself as better than other people, not every person, but many, unique and talented, and I aim to success.
Robbie Williams
But that the reasoning from these facts, the drawing from them correct conclusions, is a matter of great difficulty, may be inferred from the imperfect state in which the Science is now found after it has been so long and so intensely studied.
Nassau William Senior
Everything I had read in the fields of fiction and science led me to a single, dark conclusion. Humans are screwed, and so is our planet.
Annalee Newitz
The Army has carried the American ideal to its logical conclusion. Not only do they prohibit discrimination on the grounds of race, creed and color, but also on ability.
Tom Lehrer
My only conclusion about structure is that nothing works if you don’t have interesting characters and a good story to tell.
Harold Ramis
You eventually come to the conclusion that there’s only so much you can do with these established characters, and you start wondering who among us will be the one to create the next ‘Superman’ or ‘Batman’ or ‘James Bond’ or next ‘Lone Ranger.’
Dave Gibbons
With a sinking feeling, I have come to a horrible conclusion: I am addicted to Donald Trump.
Richard Cohen
It has been a bitter mortification for me to digest the conclusion that the “race is for the strong” and that I shall probably do little more but be content to admire the strides others made in science.
Charles Darwin
Science is about the process; it’s not about the conclusion.
Steven Novella
Our ultimate analysis of space leads us not to a “here” and a “there,” but to an extension such as that which relates “here” and “there.” To put the conclusion rather crudely-space is not a lot of points close together; it is a lot of distances interlocked.
Arthur Eddington
But man is so addicted to systems and to abstract conclusions that he is prepared deliberately to distort the truth, to close his eyes and ears, but justify his logic at all cost.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
The method of exposition which philosophers have adopted leads many to suppose that they are simply inquiries, that they have no interest in the conclusions at which they arrive, and that their primary concern is to follow their premises to their logical conclusions.
Morris Raphael Cohen
The more you know yourself, the more clarity there is. Self-knowledge has no end – you don’t come to an achievement, you don’t come to a conclusion. It is an endless river.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
Based on this one experience I had, jumping to conclusions is always really stupid.
Craig Benzine
Two sides to a story exist when evidence exists on both sides of a position. Then, reasonable people may disagree about how to weigh that evidence and what conclusion to form from it. Everyone, of course, is entitled to their own opinion.
Daniel Levitin
Mr. Franzen said he and Mr. Wallace, over years of letters and conversations about the ethical role of the novelist, had come to the joint conclusion that the purpose of writing fiction was “a way out of loneliness.” (NY Times article on the memorial service of David Foster Wallace.)
Jonathan Franzen
In my mind, there’s no logical conclusion that can be drawn, other than that I was fired for my activism.
Chris Kluwe
People who jump to conclusions rarely alight on them.
Philip Guedalla
The very best testament to the validity of the Warren Commission’s findings is that after an unrelenting, close to forty-five-year effort, the Commission’s fiercest critics have not been able to produce any new credible evidence that would in any way justify a different conclusion.
Vincent Bugliosi
Show (don’t tell) your customers that you have good quality by actually delivering fresh coffee and tea. Intelligent people are active recipients of information, and prefer to reach conclusions by themselves.
Jerry Baldwin
Religion hinges upon faith, politics hinges upon who can tell the most convincing lies or maybe just shout the loudest, but science hinges upon whether its conclusions resembe what actually happens.
Ian Stewart
In science , all conclusions are provisional, subject to new evidence and better arguments, the very antithesis of religious faith.
Michael Shermer
I agree with a lot of the points in Taleb’s book, but I don’t agree with many of his conclusions. It seems to me that he rightly points out that risk managers miss a lot of the risks, but the conclusion is that he draws, is that we should abandon risk management, whereas my conclusion is we should improve it.
Robert F. Engle
I like to get people talking. I am a provocateur, and I do like getting on Twitter and riling people up. You know what, after a while some sane dialogue and sane conclusions come of that kind of thing.
Roseanne Barr
As a writer, I’ve tried to avoid strong opinions about morality. You just want to present things as they are and let the viewer come to their own conclusion.
Terence Winter
The foregoing considerations lead us to the very important conclusion, that matter is essentially force, and nothing but force; that matter, as popularly understood, does not exist, and is, in fact, philosophically inconceivable.
Alfred Russel Wallace
I’m not really gay, and I can’t sit here and say that I am, because that’s not real and that’s not genuine. But I also can’t sit here and say that I’m straight. This is something I’ve come to the conclusion through therapy and from being honest with myself. I am bisexual.
Shane Dawson
I’m not extremely political. I think everything should be layed out and you can make your own conclusions. As soon as I feel I’m being taught something or preached something, I just glaze over it and I don’t want to hear it.
Rob Zombie
The true function of philosophy is to educate us in the principles of reasoning and not to put an end to further reasoning by the introduction of fixed conclusions.
George Henry Lewes
Too often we jump to the conclusion that something is impossible simply because we cannot see the solution. No one knows enough to be a pessimist.
Wayne Dyer
In 1957, which is now 57 years ago, my grandfather and then-Prime Minister Nobusuke Kishi welcomed Prime Minister Menzies as the first Australian Prime Minister to visit Japan after World War II and drove the conclusion of the Japan-Australia Agreement on Commerce.
Shinzo Abe
What is it that an artist does when he is left alone in his studio? My conclusion was that if I was an artist and I was in the studio, then everything I was doing in the studio should be art . . . . From that point on, art became more of an activity and less of a product.
Bruce Nauman
I came to the conclusion that we should aspire to increase the scope and scale of human consciousness in order to better understand what questions to ask. Really, the only thing that makes sense is to strive for greater collective enlightenment.
Elon Musk
Though the National Bureau of Economic Research deemed the recession to have ended in June 2009, to most Americans, that conclusion seems not to square with reality.
Elaine Chao
If a chess statistician were to try and satisfy his curiousity over which stage of the game proved decisive in the majority of cases, he would certainly come to the conclusion that it is the middlegame that provides the most decisive stage.
Alexander Kotov
I had reached the conclusion myself that sex was not a division but a continuum, that almost nobody was altogether of one sex or another, and that the infinite subtlety of the shading from one extreme to the other was one of the most beautiful of nature’s phenomena.
Jan Morris
The single despot stands out in the face of all men, and says: I am the State: My will is law: I am your master: I take the responsibility of my acts: The only arbiter I acknowledge is the sword: If any one denies my right, let him try conclusions with me.
Lysander Spooner
I have come to the conclusion that there is nothing good that doesn’t have bad consequences and nothing bad that doesn’t have good consequences.
Pete Seeger
Experience is valuable only if it’s imbued with meaning from which one can draw salient conclusions. Otherwise, experience becomes imprisoning.
Barry McCaffrey
I have come to the conclusion that whether or not a person is a religious believer does not matter. Far more important is that they be a good human being.
Dalai Lama
Since we have emphasized that analysis will lead to a positive conclusion only in the exceptional case, it follows that many securities must be examined before one is found that has real possibilities for the analyst. By what practical means does he proceed to make his discoveries? Mainly by hard and systematic work.
Benjamin Graham
Stupidity lies in wanting to draw conclusions.
Gustave Flaubert
Unless the structure of the nucleus has a surprise in store for us, the conclusion seems plain — there is nothing in the whole system of laws of physics that cannot be deduced unambiguously from epistemological considerations.
Arthur Eddington
When Napoleon abdicated in April 1814, Britain expected that America would soon lose heart and surrender, too. From then on, London’s chief aims were to bring a swift conclusion to the war and capture as much territory as possible in order to gain the best advantage in the inevitable peace talks.
Amanda Foreman
I want to stress the importance of being fair to our readers. You should not impose your own view and prejudice on the readers and try to lead them to a conclusion. As a reader, I understand what a fair report is.
Jack Ma
In the strict formulation of the law of causality—if we know the present, we can calculate the future—it is not the conclusion that is wrong but the premise.
On an implication of the uncertainty principle.
Werner Heisenberg
Reality itself is not static. This is one of the things that the psychedelic is trying to put across, that the reality we’re embedded in is itself some kind of an organism and is evolving toward a conclusion.
Terence McKenna
In the age of information, ignorance is a choice. Question everything. Don’t believe everything you hear. Come to your own conclusions.
Mark Patterson
Palestinians don’t really believe in a state of Israel. They, unlike a majority of Israelis, who have come to the conclusion that they can live with a two-state solution to be determined by the parties, the majority of Palestinians are still very reluctant, and they need to be pushed to get there.
Chuck Schumer
Rigor is always appropriate when investing in markets, whatever the ultimate conclusions may be.
Robert Rubin
I think that America certainly has racism, I think that any industrialized country does. But when you see how many million fans Barack Obama has who are not black, it would lead one to the conclusion that millions of Americans are in fact not burdened by the albatross of racism.
Henry Rollins
When you’re listening to club music, there’s no reward. The reward isn’t, ‘Oh, here’s the chorus, here’s the lyric that makes sense.’ You have to enjoy what it is. You have to enjoy that there’s no conclusion.
How to play music may be known. At the commencement of the piece, all the parts should sound together. As it proceeds, they should be in harmony while severally distinct and flowing without break, and thus on to the conclusion.
My work with churches has led me to the conclusion that the single most important element in having an effective and life-changing ministry is to capture God’s vision for your ministry.”
Phil Pringle
In conclusion I congratulate you, my fellow-citizens, upon the high state of prosperity to which the goodness of Divine Providence has conducted our common country. Let us invoke a continuance of the same protecting care which has led us from small beginnings to the eminence we this day occupy
Zachary Taylor
He who attempts to draw any conclusion whatever as to the nation’s wealth or poverty from the mere fact of a favorable or unfavorable Balance of Trade, has not grasped the first fundamental principle of Political Economy.
Ernst Engel
State ownership! It leads only to absurd and monstrous conclusions; state ownership means state monopoly, concentrated in the hands of one party and its adherents, and that state brings only ruin and bankruptcy to all.
Benito Mussolini
Conclusion: better to be a thinking monk than a postmodern thinker.
Muriel Barbery
Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are God. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are God.
Christopher Hitchens
To support its conclusion that ‘this is a religious people… this is a Christian nation,’ the Court paraded a veritable litany of precedents from American history: taken from Church of the Holy Trinity v. U.S.; 143 U.S. 457-458 (1892).
David Barton
Radioactivity is shown to be accompanied by chemical changes in which new types of matter are being continually produced. …. The conclusion is drawn that these chemical changes must be sub-atomic in character.
Ernest Rutherford
I’ve expressed my gratitude to my son many times. And his career is far from undistinguished, and it was a great privilege to have someone of this skill bringing this album to conclusion.
Leonard Cohen
I don’t hire a lot of number-crunchers, and I don’t trust fancy marketing surveys. I do my own surveys and draw my own conclusions.
Donald Trump
Facts are not truths; they are not conclusions; they are not even premises, but in the nature and parts of premises.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
I believe that we are a story-driven species and that we understand how things are put together, in the context of narrative. It’s a shame that science hasn’t been taught that way, in a long time. It’s usually the fact completely devoid of any human experience or any idea of how the scientist came to that conclusion.
Ann Druyan
If there is one conclusion to which human experience unmistakably points it is that democratic ends demand democratic methods for their realization.
John Dewey
The kiss lasted forever as Otto Frank kept talking from behind me. “And my conclusion is,” he said, “since I had been in very good terms with Anne, that most parents don’t know really their children.
John Green
As long as you have life and breath, believe. Believe for those who cannot. Believe even if you have stopped believing. Believe for the sake of the dead, for love, to keep your heart beating, believe. Never give up, never despair, let no mystery confound you into the conclusion that mystery cannot be yours.
Mark Helprin
Elementary considerations led me to the conclusion that a medium, composed of layers of different dielectric constants, must behave as a uniaxial crystal if it is assumed that the layer thicknesses are only a fraction of a wave-length.
Karl Ferdinand Braun
We came to the comforting conclusion that the Creator probably knew how to run His universe quite as well as we do, and that, after all, there are no such things as ‘wasted’ lives, saving and except when am individual wilfully squanders and wastes his own life.
Lucy Maud Montgomery
For undemocratic reasons and for motives not of State, they arrive at their conclusions, largely inarticulate. Being void of self-expression they confide their views to none; but sometimes in a smoking room, one learns why things were done.
Rudyard Kipling
Don’t mistake a good setup for a satisfying conclusion – many beginning writers end their stories when the real story is just ready to begin.
Stanley Schmidt
Our friendships hurry to short and poor conclusions, because we have made them a texture of wine and dreams, instead of the toughfibre of the human heart. The laws of friendship are austere and eternal, of one web with the laws of nature and of morals.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
For every criminal case, the judge must construct a perfect syllogism: the major premise must be the general law; the minor premise, whether or not the action in question is in compliance with the law; and the conclusion, acquittal or punishment.
Cesare Beccaria
Rocky is a very predictable movie. The ending is a foregone conclusion.
Sylvester Stallone
Family’s number one; just, that’s flat out it, and I think a lot of people, when they’re put in a certain position, will come to that conclusion, and you’ll just do whatever.
Nick Cummins
Two ideas militate against our consciously contributing to a better world. The idea that we can do everything or the conclusion that we can do nothing to make this globe a better place to live are both temptations of the most insidious form. One leads to arrogance; the other to despair.
Joan D. Chittister
Something like Shakespeare in Love, which became such an established hit that it now seems like a foregone conclusion… but it really wasn’t. The script was around for a very, very long time and had people chickening out all the time.
Colin Firth
We’re removal men. It’s hard labour. I’ve come to the conclusion being a forward is probably the worst thing in rugby. Looking at backs, they play kick and laugh, run and clap and we get absolutely flogged.
James Haskell
Greenlight is a bad example of an election process. We came to the conclusion pretty quickly that we could just do away with Greenlight completely, because it was a bottleneck rather than a way for people to communicate choice.
Gabe Newell
Faith is a withholding of conclusion so that you allow what is to arise.
I thought about the meaning of pluralism in a world where the forces that seek to divide us are strong. I came to one conclusion: We have to save each other. It’s the only way to save ourselves.
Eboo Patel
The open mind never acts: when we have done our utmost to arrive at a reasonable conclusion, we still must close our minds for the moment with a snap, and act dogmatically on our conclusions.
George Bernard Shaw
As you think, so you become…..Our busy minds are forever jumping to conclusions, manufacturing and interpreting signs that aren’t there.
The greatest embarrassment of my political career has been that active duties seem to deprive me of time for careful investigation. I seem almost obliged to form conclusions from impressions instead of from study…. I wish that I had more knowledge, more thorough acquaintance, with the matters involved.
Woodrow Wilson
The world is deceitful; her end is doubtful, her conclusion is horrible, her judge terrible, and her judgment is intolerable.
Francis Quarles
If we carry purism to it’s logical conclusion, to do it right {fishing} you’d have to live naked in a cave, hit your trout on the head with rocks, and eat them raw. But, so as not to violate another essential element of the fly-fishing tradition, the rocks would have to be quarried in England and cost $300 each.
John Gierach
The same set of statistics can produce opposite conclusions at different levels of aggregation.
Thomas Sowell
The fake republics are goners; the monarchies have a fighting chance. That’s my conclusion after a short visit to the Middle East and discussions with officials and analysts there.
Elliott Abrams
I don’t believe that anybody has come to a conclusion on why something is funny. It’s funny because it’s ridiculous and it’s ridiculous for different reasons at different times.
Jackie Mason
There are no men more careful of the use of means than those that are surest of a good issue and conclusion, for the one stirs up diligence in the other. Assurance of the end stirs up diligence in the means. For the soul of a believing Christian knows that God has decreed both.
Richard Sibbes
The feelings of our heart, the agitation of our passions, the vehemence of our affections, dissipate all its conclusions, and reduce the profound philosopher to a mere plebeian
David Hume
The best Reformed theology isn’t just about careful arguments for theologically sophisticated conclusions. It is about how to live the Christian life.
Oliver D. Crisp
I think you have to be who you truly are and love who you are (to be beautiful). It’s also important to be free and honest, enjoying life and having fun. In conclusion, … I am who I am.
Which, autocracy or democracy, is really better suited to modern China? If we base our judgment upon the intelligence and the ability of the Chinese people, we come to the conclusion that the sovereignty of the people would be far more suitable for us.
Sun Yat-sen
Regardless of what other stigmas may be involved, I think we have to do this because the world of medicine is trying to do the exact same thing and figure it out and they’re coming to some conclusions.
Pete Carroll
In Holland, they have come to precisely the same conclusion. There they have adopted a system of secular education, because they have found it impracticable to unite the religious bodies in any system of combined religious instruction.
Richard Cobden
As for myself: I had come to the conclusion that there was nothing sacred about myself or about any human being, that we were all machines, doomed to collide and collide and collide.
Kurt Vonnegut
Just to prove that even the silliest idea can be pursued to its illogical conclusion, Legal Realism spawned Critical Legal Studies.
Alex Kozinski
Based on the people l’ve spoken to, I think the impression is: Is America safer from Al Qaeda? Yes. Is America weaker as a nation because we have overspent and over-focused on Al Qaeda? Yes. I think that would be the conclusion that people seem to have come to and that I tend to agree with.
Richard Engel
I have learned to be less confident in the conclusions of human reason, and give more credit to the honesty of contrary opinions.
Thomas Jefferson
The historical data support one conclusion with unusual force: To invest with success, you must be a long-term investor.
John C. Bogle
Hasty conclusions lead to speedy repentance.
Publilius Syrus
The cosmical importance of this conclusion is profound and the possibilities it opens for the future very remarkable, greater in fact than any suggested before by science in the whole history of the human race.
Francis William Aston
What the human being is best at doing is interpreting all new information so that their prior conclusions remain intact.
Warren Buffett
It is my conclusion that UFOs do exist, are very real, and are spaceships from another or more than one solar system. They are possibly manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race carrying out long-range scientific investigations of our earth for centuries.
Hermann Oberth
Murder will out, this my conclusion.
Geoffrey Chaucer
You need to be more careful, or you could hurt yourself.” Right. Thank you, Mrs. Detweiler. I never would have come to that conclusion by myself. I was planning on incorporating a backflip into my next walk across the classroom but on second thought.
Janette Rallison
My conclusion about Mr. Trump’s unsuitability for office is based on his disregard for the precept of treating others with respect, an idea that should transcend politics. Instead, he opts to mock the vulnerable and inflame prejudices by attacking ethnic and religious minorities.
Susan Collins
I know that the greatest of actresses has about 20 good years of acting in her and that she will go on living for 30 or 40 years as a human being. So, the conclusion I have come to is that I can’t make acting my whole life.
Jean Seberg
In the dime stores and bus stations
 People talk of situations
 Read books, repeat quotations
 Draw conclusions on the wall
 Some speak of the future
 My love she speaks softly
 She knows there’s no success like failure
 And that failure’s no success at all -Bob Dylan, “Love Minus Zero / No Limit” (1965)
Bob Dylan
I have come to believe, deeply and firmly, that we can create a poverty free world if we want to. I came to this conclusion not as a product of a pious dream, but as a concrete result of experience gained in the work of the Grameen Bank.
Muhammad Yunus
That is why I came to conclusion that the election must take place, so that the republic can have a government. If I were to say that everything will change for the better immediately, that would not be true. The struggle will continue for a long time.
Akhmad Kadyrov
For me, one of the great tragedies is the conclusion studios have drawn about traditional animation. I believe that 2D animation could be just as vital as it ever was. I think the problem has been with the stories.
Edwin Catmull
Confusion is better than stupid conclusions. In confusion, there is still a possibility. In stupid conclusion, there is no possibility.
Jaggi Vasudev
We look harder for flaws in a study when we don’t agree with its conclusions.
Sharon Begley
The study of history lies at the foundation of all sound military conclusions and practice.
Alfred Thayer Mahan
Data are just as often molded to fit preferred conclusions.
Roger Lewin
In life nothing is taken to its ultimate conclusion, life is a half-way house, a place of obligatory compromise; and, in dealing in logical conclusions, a man steps out of life — or so it would be quite legitimate to argue.
Wyndham Lewis
Our environments shape the way we see ourselves. If you have been condemned to live in an area that is pretty evidently a rat-run, then sooner or later you’re gonna come to the conclusion that you’re a rat.
Alan Moore
Sometimes melody and sometimes lyrics. It depends on the tempo and feel of the song. Slower pieces usually begin with melody and faster ones with lyrics. I write for the song and it leads me to my conclusion.
Ronnie James Dio
Most action is based on redemption and revenge, and that’s a formula. Moby Dick was formula. It’s how you get to the conclusion that makes it interesting.
Sylvester Stallone
Jeff Selingo is one of the most respected observers of American higher education…Not all will agree with his observations, conclusions, predictions and recommendations, but all will gain from this thoughtful, well-written, provocative volume. I highly recommend it.
David J. Skorton
I have come to the conclusion that it is attitude that determines how you handle and survive life.
Sara Henderson
I don’t want my kids to grow up with no father like I did. I came to the conclusion a while ago that you can work until midnight and not be finished or you can work until 6 or 7 and not be finished. I decided I’d rather work until 6 or 7.
Ben Carson
The seventy-five years and twenty million dollars expended on the Grant Study points to a straightforward five-word conclusion: Happiness is love. Full stop.
George Vaillant
The weaker the data available upon which to base one’s conclusion, the greater the precision which should be quoted in order to give the data authenticity.
Norman Ralph Augustine
Finally, in conclusion, let me say just this.
Peter Sellers
While she could hardly fathom what had just happened to her that night, she reached some conclusions before she fell asleep, certain things now made perfect sense; Moon River didn’t sound so syrupy, mistletoe wasn’t such a bad idea, and perhaps dating was not such a frivolous waste of time after all.
E. A. Bucchianeri
All the plays that have ever been written, from ancient Greece to the present day, have never really been anything but thrillers… Drama’s always been realistic and there’s always been a detective about… Every play’s an investigation brought to a successful conclusion.
Eugene Ionesco
I think fiction isn’t so good at being for or against things in general – the rhetorical argument a short story can make is only actualized by the accretion of particular details, and the specificity of these details renders whatever conclusions the story reaches invalid for wider application.
George Saunders
In conclusion, you can see that there is a place for censors and we only wish that we could tell you where it is.
Pat Paulsen
The conclusion that I have come to is that actually, no religion, whether it’s Islam, Christianity or any idea based on scripture or texts, is a religion of ‘anything,’ really.
Maajid Nawaz
Over the years they both reached the same wise conclusion by different paths: it was not possible to live together in any other way, or love in any other way, and nothing in this world was more difficult than love.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again. If all economists were laid end to end they would not reach a conclusion.
George Bernard Shaw
My mother cared more about how you reasoned than about the conclusions you reached.
David Frum
I would have never wanted to write another management book. There are so many of them, and everybody says the same thing about them, and they are all the same – they give the exact same advice. It’s like a diet book; they all say eat less calories, exercise more, and every single book has the same conclusion.
Ben Horowitz
All attempts by the State to bias the conclusions of its citizens on disputed subjects, are evil.
John Stuart Mill
She decided that her wisest course would be to put him out of her mind. After reaching this conclusion she lay thinking about him until at last she fell asleep.
Georgette Heyer
A story has been thought to its conclusion when it has taken its worst possible turn.
Friedrich Durrenmatt
If it is possible for the human tongue to give the fullest description of God, I have come to the conclusion that God is Truth.
Mahatma Gandhi
We are not certain, we are never certain. If we were we could reach some conclusions, and we could, at last, make others take us seriously.
Albert Camus
When seen in retrospect, fashions seem to express their era. Although it is more difficult to draw conclusions from contemporary clothes, the same principles which hold for the clothes of the past must hold for clothes of the present and the future.
James Laver
Please help keep the world clean: others may wish to use it.
Logic is a systematic method of coming to the wrong conclusion with confidence.
The only place success comes before work is a dictionary
Politicians should read science fiction, not westerns and detective stories.
Arthur C. Clarke
Observation: I can’t see a thing. Conclusion: Dinosaurs.
Carl Sagan
Men, to act with vigour and effect, must have time to mature measures, and judgment and experience, as to the best method of applying them. They must not be hurried on to their conclusions by the passions, or the fears of the multitude. They must deliberate, as well as resolve.
Joseph Story
Looking back on my own career, I’ve come to the conclusion that too much money is worse than too little.
Guy Kawasaki
As a Jew reading about Jesus, I thought, ‘He’s a pretty good guy.’ It’s the same conclusion Monty Python drew in ‘Life of Brian’ – if people actually live what he did, it would be a pretty good world. But Jesus and Christianity have a tenuous relationship at best.
David Javerbaum
But on second thought, after I decreed the state of emergency, I came to the conclusion that that was impossible to achieve without bloodshed because the street protesters were full of anger and nearly out of control. This is why I thought we needed to find another way out.
Eduard Shevardnadze
I have come to the conclusion that Darwinism is not a testable scientific theory, but a metaphysical research programme.
Karl Popper
In Japan they prefer the realistic style. They like answers and conclusions, but my stories have none. I want to leave them wide open to every possibility. I think my readers understand that openness.
Haruki Murakami
A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking.
Dan Chaon
Most scientists never look at UFO evidence, which leads to their conclusion that there is no evidence.
Bernard Haisch
Talent jogs to conclusions to which Genius takes giant leaps.
Edwin Percy Whipple
The only possible conclusion the social sciences can draw is: some do, some don’t.
Ernest Rutherford
I have come to this conclusion that there is only one country in the world which understands religion – it is India.
Swami Vivekananda
Sleep seems to hammer out for me the logical conclusions of my vague days, and offer them to me as dreams.
D. H. Lawrence
After an extensive investigation, the office produced a report that addressed the many questions that confronted the difficult issues, it laid out new evidence, and it reached a definitive conclusion.
Ken Starr
As to the doubt of the soul I discover it to be false: a mood not a conclusion. My conclusion is the Faith. Corporate, organized, a personality, teaching. A thing, not a theory. It.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
No one should ever say that it was my ignorance if I did or showed forth anything however small according to God’s good pleasure; but let this be your conclusion and let it so be thought, that – as is the perfect truth – it was the gift of God.
Saint Patrick
After much thought and prayer, I have come to my own personal conclusion that we shouldn’t tell people who they can love or who they can marry.
Kay Hagan
After more than 700 hours of studying this subject, and thoroughly investigating its foundation, I have come to the conclusion that the resurrection of Jesus Christ is one of the most wicked, vicious, heartless hoaxes ever foisted upon the minds of men, or it is the most fantastic fact of history
Josh McDowell
In every chain of reasoning, the evidence of the last conclusion can be no greater than that of the weakest link of the chain, whatever may be the strength of the rest.
Thomas Reid
I absolutely do not think it’s a foregone conclusion that we’re going to lose our coach. Tom Herman loves the University of Houston. He’s happy to be coaching at the University of Houston, and I think there are only a few places Tom Herman would even consider.
Tilman J. Fertitta
Reason would lead us to the conclusion that Jehovah would not create a wonderful earth like this, permit man to bring it to a high state of cultivation in many places, and then completely destroy it.
Joseph Franklin Rutherford
Before anything can be reasoned upon to a conclusion, certain facts, principles, or data, to reason from, must be established, admitted, or denied.
Thomas Paine
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
Above and beyond drawing my creations, I try to incorporate some kind of message. I try not to end as merely a question but try to provide a conclusion within the work.
Natsuki Takaya
I was told by my father, who was a priest, that it was the basic duty of a Muslim to establish peace on earth… I soon came to the conclusion that it was not religion but misuse of religion and politicising of religion, which was the main culprit.
Asghar Ali Engineer
and in the meantime don’t jump to conclusions.
Carl Hiaasen
The biggest lie is the idea that we are entitled to a meaningful and coherent summarizing, a conclusion, of something which never concludes. In that regard, this is the lie I’m telling myself so I don’t set fire to anything.
David Milch
The main conclusion here arrived at … is that man is descended from some less highly organized form.
Charles Darwin
Censorship is saying: ‘I’m the one who says the last sentence. Whatever you say, the conclusion is mine.’ But the internet is like a tree that is growing. The people will always have the last word – even if someone has a very weak, quiet voice. Such power will collapse because of a whisper.
Ai Weiwei
Question your thoughts.
Question your stories.
Question your assumptions.
Question your opinions.
Question your conclusions.
Question them all into utter emptiness, stillness and joy.
The keys to freedom are in your hands.
Use them.
A deep cynicism is taking hold of the country, with more and more Americans convinced that big money calls the shots in Washington and that there is nothing that can be done about it. We must resist that conclusion and fight back on behalf of everyday citizens. Reform is possible, and it is imperative.
John Sarbanes
Usually all my tattoos came at good times. A tattoo is something permanent when you’ve made a self-discovery, or something you’ve come to a conclusion about.
Angelina Jolie
My own conclusion is that history is simply social development along the lines of weakest resistance, and that in most cases the line of weakest resistance is found as unconsciously by society as by water.
Henry Adams
I was obliged, at last, to come to the conclusion that the contemplation of nature alone is not sufficient to fill the human heart and mind.
Henry Walter Bates
The ablest administrators do not merely draw logical conclusions from the array of facts of the past which their expert assistants bring to them, they have a vision of the future.
Mary Parker Follett
The mind should be accustomed to make wise reflections, and draw curious conclusions as it goes along; the habitude of which made Pliny the Younger affirm that he never read book so bad but he drew some profit from it.
Laurence Sterne
The theoretical idea … does not arise apart from and independent of experience; nor can it be derived from experience by a purely logical procedure. It is produced by a creative act. Once a theoretical idea has been acquired, one does well to hold fast to it until it leads to an untenable conclusion.
Albert Einstein
Also, and this may sound naГЇve, but since my early days in journalism, I’ve felt that getting as close as possible to truth, revealing the reality of a situation in detail, has its own persuasive power. This allows readers to look at the facts and the perspectives presented and draw informed conclusions.
Sheri Fink
I run because long after my footprints fade away, maybe I will have inspired a few to reject the easy path, hit the trails, put one foot in front of the other, and come to the same conclusion I did: I run because it always takes me where I want to go.
Dean Karnazes
Football, for me, wasn’t a foregone conclusion. My parents didn’t force me into it, and quite the opposite happened.
Chris Long
I’ve come to the conclusion that beautiful women in the West aren’t comfortable finding strength in their femininity. They want to do masculine-oriented things to establish their femininity. It’s a contradiction.
Wesley Snipes
You just have to believe in what you’re saying and be able to explain why you said it. There’s nothing I say that I can’t back up or at least explain why I came to that conclusion, so I’m not afraid of getting in trouble.
Jim Norton
As I got older, I got comfortable with revealing myself. In the past, I’ve feared a lot of things. I thought people just hated me, maybe because I was criticized a lot since I was young. Even when facing reporters like this, I just came to the conclusion, ‘They will hate me.’
I came to the conclusion long ago that all life is six to five against.
Damon Runyon
I was shocked to find that there were actually climate scientists who wouldn’t share the raw data, but would only share their conclusions in summary graphs that were used to prove their various theories about planet warming. In fact I began to smell something really bad, and the worse that smell got, the deeper I looked.
Burt Rutan
