I think the Europeans are a lot more spontaneous, more artistic to some degree. But I don’t think they have the technical talent we do here in the states.

Nikola Tesla
All responsible writers, to some degree, have become involuntary criers of doom, because doom is in the wind

Hugh Miller
The nature of process, to one degree or another, involves failure. You have at it. It doesn’t work. You keep pushing. It gets better. But it’s not good. It gets worse. You got at it again. Then you desperately stab at it, believing “this isn’t going to work.” And it does!
Saul Bass
Alone, what did Bloom feel? The cold of interstellar space, thousands of degrees below freezing point or the absolute zero of Fahrenheit, Centigrade or RГ©aumur: the incipient intimations of proximate dawn.

sweetness are completely spiritual, although it is also true that they are shared by the body to a high degree.
Pio of Pietrelcina

Rachel Corrie

Murray Bookchin
What I did by virtue of skipping a lot of classes was get two undergraduate degrees and a master’s in four years. It wasn’t slacking. There were much more productive ways of learning everything than sitting in lectures.
Sal Khan

W. E. B. Du Bois
I’ve always been passionately in love with movies, to such a degree that even as a young person of about nineteen or twenty I thought maybe I would try to become a film director.

To revenge reasonable incredulity by refusing evidence, is a degree of insolence with which the world is not yet acquainted; and stubborn audacity is the last refuge of guilt.

Jimmy Carter
“Science,” of course, replaced “God” as a guiding concept for many people after Darwin. Or, really, the two were rolled up into a sticky ball. To some degree this was mindless worship of a miracle future, the pursuit of which has landed us in the fix we now inhabit.
Bill McKibben

I would say here something that was heard from an ecclesiastic of the most eminent degree: The intention of the Holy Spirit is to teach us how one goes to heaven, not how the heavens go.
Galileo Galilei
Obscurity is where God sends all His favorite sons and daughters. Our society tells us that if and when we get ‘there’—the job or position or degree we’ve always wanted, the notoriety we’ve always dreamed of—that’s when all the important stuff will start happening. Not so. All the good stuff happens in obscurity.
Jonathan Martin
I am not a good shot. Few of us are. To make up for this I hold my fire until I have a shot of less than 20 degrees deflection and until I’m within 300 yards. Good discipline on this score can make up for a great deal.
John C. Meyer
A country whose buildings are of wood, can never increase in its improvements to any considerable degree…. Whereas when buildings are of durable materials, every new edifice is an actual and permanent acquisition to the state, adding to its value as well as to its ornament.
Thomas Jefferson
The puppet characters were combinations of people I had known and to some degree aspects of my own personality. Weird was based on someone I knew in Chicago. Dirty Dragon was based on a good friend I had in Indianapolis.
William Jackson
The degree to which one is sensitive to other people’s suffering, to other (people’s) humanity, is the index of one’s own humanity
Abraham Joshua Heschel

Susan Cain
So when I got out of the military, I went back to school in biology, and earned a biology degree at the University of Texas, and then did some graduate work in it.

Newt Gingrich
The sublimity of administration consists in knowing the proper degree of power that should be exerted on different occasions.
Baron de Montesquieu
And I never forgot this as long as I’ve ever performed, no matter how crap I had felt before I went on stage. I just remember Tina Turner going up there, singing her heart out for everybody, and meantime she had a 102-degree fever and she was feeling terrible.
Bryan Adams
They offer me neither food nor drink – intellectual nor spiritual consolation… [Conservatism] leads nowhere; it satisfies no ideal; it conforms to no intellectual standard, it is not safe, or calculated to preserve from the spoilers that degree of civilization which we have already attained.
John Maynard Keynes

Dean Koontz
It must be the PGA Championship if it’s August and you can sit down and talk to the heat or reach inside your shirt, where it’s 110 degrees, and grab handfuls of humidity.
Dan Jenkins
The friendship of fine-hearted, generous boys, nurtured amid the romance-engendering comforts and elegancies of life, sometimes transcends the bounds of mere boyishness, and revels for a while in the empyrean of a love which only comes short, by one degree, of the sweetest sentiment entertained between the sexes.
Herman Melville
Where the subject lies so far beyond our reach, the difference between the highest and the lowest of human understandings may indeed be calculated as infinitely small; yet the degree of weakness may perhaps be measured by the degree of obstinacy and dogmatic confidence.
Edward Gibbon
He slipped away slowly, withdrawing from this world by small, imperceptible degrees, and in the end it was as if he were a drop of water evaporating in the sun, shrinking and shrinking until at last he wasn’t there anymore.
Paul Auster
But I saw Blake earlier and he said he and Nate were taking off for an overnight business thing. So…” “… you’re just going to jump their fence and their pool,” I finished for her. Silence. Then Jamie said, “It’s twenty-five degrees! In December! Do you know what this means?” “The apocalypse?
Sarah Dessen
As a Buddhist, I was trained to be tolerant of everything except intolerance. I was brought up not only to develop the spirit of tolerance but also to cherish moral and spiritual qualities such as modesty, humility, compassion, and, most important, to attain a certain degree of emotional equilibrium.
U Thant
I will always be referred to as a theorist, but I was only a fellow traveller with a degree.
Volkmar Sigusch

Stephen King
Forgive offences by the million. And if you love all unselfishly, all will by degrees come to love one another.
Swami Vivekananda
Great teams are usually small-under fifty in total head count. (There are few examples of a team made up of hundreds of people who created anything revolutionary.) Big teams aren’t conducive to revolutionary products because such products require a high degree of single-mindedness, unity, and unreasonable passion.
Guy Kawasaki
The degree of genius necessary to please us is pretty nearly the same proportion that we ourselves have.
Claude Adrien Helvetius

Vanessa Mae

William Shakespeare
A certain degree of ceremony is a necessary outwork of manners, as well as of religion; it keeps the forward and petulant at a proper distance, and is a very small restraint to the sensible and to the well-bred part of the world.
Lord Chesterfield
If you’re thinking about coming to Tom Savini’s Special Make-Up Effects Program just STOP. Stop THINKING about it and just DO it. Aren’t we talking about making your dreams come true? Our students’ attitude is ‘This is school?’… because they are having so much fun every day doing what they love… and… they get a degree!
Tom Savini
In societies like the American and West European where the dynamics of energy come from freedom and where the climate and the whole ethos are those of freedom, censorship is bound to be at worst, stupid; at best, futile; and always, to some degree, inconsonant with the character of the society as a whole.
Max Lerner
I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with his freedom.
Bob Dylan
The degree of leverage now being reversed is on a staggering scale, and the underlying global imbalances – notably between the savers and the spenders – will require long and painful adjustment.
Vince Cable

Kurt Huber
The more profound problem, however, is the degree to which many academic intellectuals, especially in the humanities, have lost their ability to distinguish the ‘state’ from ‘society’.

Guido Molinari

Some people have concerns about what it means to leave our responsibilities to robots. I think to some degree in every family, you’ve got siblings who disagree over the care for their parents.
Jake Schreier
An individual has a healthy personality to the exact degree to which they have the propensity to look for the good in every situation.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Imagine my surprise when it turned out the main thing that I was qualified for was to get another degree and teach Political Science to other people, who would, in turn, teach it to other people! This wasn’t higher education, this was Amway with a football team!
Richard Jeni
Some things that make sense to me don’t make the same degree of sense to other people.
Edward Albee
I want to go to the extremes and transformation is something I’m fascinated by. At the same time, you can transform but you can only really put what you’ve got inside you into somebody, so there’s always going to be a degree of you inhabiting any role.
Ed Speleers
Socialism will be here the day we share our profits to the degree we share our failures.
Malcolm Forbes
Every photograph is altered, to one degree or another.
John Paul Caponigro
I feel like everyone kind of knew someone, like 6 degrees of separation. In Hollywood that is very common.
Ashley Greene
Take young researchers, put them together in virtual seclusion, give them an unprecedented degree of freedom and turn up the pressure by fostering competitiveness.
James D. Watson
If you want to be an anthropologist, you need to study physical anthropology specialized in bones. If you want to be a forensic chemist, get a degree in chemistry. Do you want to do DNA work? Get a degree in microbiology. And do well. Study hard and go to graduate school.
Kathy Reichs
If I didn’t like you, I could take any or all of what I found and invent a context that lost you your job, your relationships, your degree. People are so vulnerable online and they don’t realize it. That is scary to me.
Mark Cuban
Through the most simple things which we do all the time, we can feel out to which degree we honor everything with our inner attention.
Charlotte Selver
Everybody calls “clear” those ideas which have the same degree of confusion as his own.
Marcel Proust
You are positive, creative and happy to the degree to which you eliminate negative emotions from your life.
Brian Tracy
I believe in the autobiographical concept only to the degree that I am able to put onto film all that’s passing through my head at the moment of shooting.
Michelangelo Antonioni
I’m an absolute connoisseur of cheeseburgers and like to think that I can detect even mere percentages of shift in fat content in ground meat in a burger and can actually name the temperature to which it was actually cooked to the degree if I’m, you know, really on my game.
Alton Brown
It is true that genius takes its rise out of the mountains of rectitude; that all beauty and power which men covet are somehow born out of that Alpine district; that any extraordinary degree of beauty in man or woman involves a moral charm.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Progress is measured by the degree of differentiation within a society.
Herbert Read
I find Indian music very funky. I mean it’s very soulful, with their own kind of blues. But it’s the only other school on the planet that develops improvisation to the high degree that you find in jazz music. So we have a lot of common ground.
John McLaughlin
Nothing in physics seems so hopeful to as the idea that it is possible for a theory to have a high degree of symmetry was hidden from us in everyday life. The physicist’s task is to find this deeper symmetry.
Steven Weinberg
From B.A. to M.A. and on to Ph.D., my academic career was all smooth sailing. Upon receiving my degrees, I stayed on to teach at Beijing Normal University.
Liu Xiaobo
To have the management of the mind is a great art, and it may be attained in a considerable degree by experience and habitual exercise.
Samuel Johnson
Bodybuilding is men on a stage in their underwear wearing brown paint showing other men their muscles. It is training for appearance only, and at the contest level requires a degree of vanity, narcissism, and self-absorption that I find distasteful and odd
Mark Rippetoe
Melancholy and sadness are the start of doubt… doubt is the beginning of despair; despair is the cruel beginning of the differing degrees of wickedness.
Isidore Ducasse Lautreamont
My advice to the college kids would be make sure you get your degree and then go after the dream.
Cung Le
I used to walk around saying that I’m just another black man without a college degree.
Jayson Blair
I got a journalism degree. I started doing journalism – I interned at ‘Cosmopolitan’ magazine in the 1970s, which probably wasn’t the best place for me, and I spent six or nine months freelancing. Anyway, I wasn’t that good at it.
Anne M. Mulcahy
I have lived a long time, and one thing I have come to see is that one is well served by a degree of both humility and charity when judging the inner workings of another person’s heart
Khaled Hosseini
If you are without impulses, you are, to a degree, without joy…” 469
Hilary Mantel
Unless degree is preserved, the first place is safe for no one.
Publilius Syrus
It might be said now that I have the best of both worlds. A Harvard education and a Yale degree.
John F. Kennedy
When you leave college, there are thousands of people out there with the same degree you have; when you get a job, there will be thousands of people doing what you want to do for a living. But you are the only person alive who has sole custody of your life.
Anna Quindlen
It was mainly to do with Helen Hunt, to be honest. That’s what drew my attention to it. I was interested in the fact that she was going to be directing. I’d never met her but she projects a degree of intelligence and it was convincing t me that she’d be able to handle this sort of material very well.
Colin Firth
The so-called language of Barbara Kruger is vernacular language. Obviously, I pick through bits and pieces of it and figure out to some degree how to objectify my experience of the world, using pictures and words that construct and contain me.
Barbara Kruger
There is nothing superstitious about forcing bad consequences for the hubris of paternalistic utopianism. Humanity should never be frozen into a vision of the best. A creative society must be willing to tolerate some degree of instability because creativity is inherently unstable.
Rebecca Goldstein
I’m not even an engineer. I don’t have a college degree; I hire guys with college degrees.
Woody Norris
The experiences of men who walked with God in olden times agree to teach that the Lord cannot fully bless the a man until He has first conquered him. The degree of blessing enjoyed by any man will correspond exactly with the completeness of God’s victory over him.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
I don’t differentiate much, except in degree, between people who believe in religion from those who believe in astrology, magic or the supernatural.
Andy Rooney
If we are made in some degree for others, yet in a greater are we made for ourselves.
Thomas Jefferson
The idea of winning a doctor’s degree gradually assumed the aspect of a great moral struggle, and the moral fight possessed immense attraction for me.
Elizabeth Blackwell
Insight occurs when, and to the degree that, one knows oneself.
Andrew Schneider
You know, my degrees are in computer engineering. I spent a lot of time in the tech industry. And I like to say that I don’t invest in tech because I spent time in it. And I saw firsthand that the durability of technology moats is many times an oxymoron.
Mohnish Pabrai
We feel good about ourselves to the exact degree we feel in control of our lives.
Brian Tracy
In terms of freedom, America doesn’t invite any comparison to Russia. It would be silly to make one. Every line that I care to write, I can have printed. There is no point to even talk about degrees.
Joseph Brodsky
I actually think to some degree that people are down for longer shows with an acoustic show.
Chris Cornell
I was in the business of marketing, and I have two Bachelor’s Degrees in Political Journalism, and I wrote for the school newspaper at the time.
Enzo Amore
We die a little every day and by degrees we’re reborn into different men, older men in the same clothes, with the same scars.
Mark Lawrence
Well, I have a Norwegian father who emigrated to America in the 1950s, and he still speaks with varying degrees of an accent. Over my lifetime my ear has been well-tuned to that accent. Any first generation kid has that wonderful gift from their parents.
Christopher Heyerdahl
I think I created my particular stage persona out of my dad’s life. And perhaps I even built it to suit him to some degree. I was looking for – when I was looking for a voice to mix with my voice, I put on my father’s work clothes, as I say in the book, and I went to work.
Bruce Springsteen
If we want to get beyond this whole I’m-cool-because-I-care-about-women thing, what we really need to do is we have to start encouraging women to get engineering degrees in college.
Michael Arrington
[The decision to travel to Washington and deliver the speech] has injected a degree of partisanship, which is not only unfortunate, I think it’s destructive of the fabric of the relationship
Benjamin Netanyahu
We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times… and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK. That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen.
Barack Obama
Sleep is the secret of life! I must have a comfortable bed, a room at exactly 60 degrees, and complete darkness like a tomb to sleep. If I don’t get 10 hours, then I’m miserable and I make everyone around me miserable.
Demis Roussos
How can it be that we laugh about England’s obsession with the royal family? At least the royal family has college degrees and military service.
Mike Leach
The more a man loves, the more he suffers. The sum of possible grief for each soul is in proportion to its degree of perfection.
Henri Frederic Amiel
106 [degrees] in the valley… I was sweating like Dan Rather checking for forged documents.
Jay Leno
Paper knowledge, paper evaluations, paper degrees all too papery and all too theoretical; it has very little that prepares us for real life in the real world.
Sonam Wangchuk
Yes, we have the freedom to do what we please, but it only works because we don’t do everything we might please – we should exercise some degree of personal, and corporate, responsibility.
Tammy Bruce
I was a full time student either at Stony Brook or NYU getting my masters degree. After I graduated with my masters I was working as a nutritionist and a personal trainer. So I have always had other business or other things going on while training for a fight.
Chris Algieri
The world of the 20th century, if it is to come to life in any viability of health and vigor, must be to a significant degree an American century.
Henry R. Luce
Listening to the radio every day for an entire year was a prison sentence. It was the most depressing, annoying, debilitating project I have ever undertaken, and I have a master’s degree in art history.
Sarah Vowell
Social mobility has always been a slippery term, with nebulous markers of success: how many state school children have to achieve postgraduate degrees, or fill higher professional jobs, before society is deemed to have achieved the requisite degree of mobility to consider prejudice or injustice a thing of the past?
Dawn Foster
One might lay down as a postulate: All conceptions of God which are incompatible with a movement of pure charity are false. All other conceptions of him, in varying degree, are true.
Simone Weil
I had a teacher’s degree and a degree in Oriental Philosophy from the University of Massachusetts. I thought I was going to India to study but all of a sudden, I had a career in music. It really surprised me.
Buffy Sainte-Marie
All other holidays are in a more or less degree connected with conflicts and battles of man’s prowess over man, of strife and discord for greed and power, of glories achieved by one nation over another. Labor Dayis devoted to no man, living or dead, to no sect, race, or nation.
Samuel Gompers
Both my mother and my father grew up in Asia, in a time of political instability. They’d earned college degrees before setting foot in the States but had to work menial jobs early on in order to make ends meet.
Gene Luen Yang
May the boldest fear and the wisest tremble when incurring responsibilities on which may depend our country’s peace and prosperity, and in some degree the hopes and happiness of the whole human family.
Zachary Taylor
Weakness indicates dependence, and there is a degree of trust and tenderness also in it.
Eugene Sue
Love at first sight is only realizing an imagination that has always haunted us; or meeting with a face, a figure, or cast of expression in perfection that we have seen and admired in a less degree or in less favorable circumstances a hundred times before.
William Hazlitt
What I find is that the taking, the stealing, the appropriation of images has to do with prior availability, and it sets up a degree where things can be shared… It’s like 50% off… You can let something of another emotion or another personality sign on your work, or co-sign it.
Richard Prince
Everything I do, I want to take it to the farthest possible degree. I can’t just do something the plain way. I don’t cook a bowl of pasta; it has to be puff pastry swans.
Geena Davis
He is so infinitely blessed, that every perception of His blissful presence imparts a gladness to the heart. Every degree of approach to Him is, in the same proportion, a degree of happiness.
Susanna Wesley
The God idea is growing more impersonal and nebulous in proportion as the human mind is learning to understand natural phenomena and in the degree that science progressively correlates human and social events.
Emma Goldman
I think that to acknowledge a new generation is to acknowledge some degree of obsolescence in yourself, and that is very hard to do and often comes with undeniable anger.
Douglas Coupland
To my mind, if we do not get a handle on money in politics and the degree to which big money controls the political process in this country, nobody is going to bring about the changes that is needed in this country for the middle class and working families.
Bernie Sanders
I am a first-generation college graduate, and I’m proud to say that most of my other siblings have college degrees as well. Our parents taught us to work hard and never forget our family roots, where we came from, and how much effort it took to get to where we are today.
Oscar Munoz
I did some films in college, and I remember working with this director that wanted to shock me so that I’d give him an expression of shock, so he poured scalding hot water on my arm during the take. He splashed it on me. He got his expression of shock, but I also got, like, second-degree burns!
John Kapelos
Basically, all women are nurturers and healers, and all men are mental patients to varying degrees.
Nelson DeMille
There are ways in which you can make that distinction objective to a certain degree. For example, by looking at responses that could be generated in the brain to exactly the same stimulus and there could be differences there.
Antonio Damasio
One of the unfortunate things about creative writing courses is that they make people impatient. People feel that they have prepared themselves and that they must now do it. In fact there are positive incentives for doing so – universities are offering degrees for writing novels.
Robert Dessaix
Every wanton and causeless restraint of the will of the subject, whether practiced by a monarch, a nobility, or a popular assembly, is a degree of tyranny.
William Blackstone
Art is not predictable. Art is not golf, as great as that may be. There are 360 degrees of choice to make.
Tina Weymouth
The most superficial student of Roman history must be struck by the extraordinary degree in which the fortunes of the republic were affected by the presence of foreigners, under different names, on her soil.
Henry James Sumner Maine
People don’t really know themselves until they’re 30. Like most people nowadays, I went to university, got a degree and wandered for a bit. I trained to be a chartered accountant, which I didn’t much enjoy, and it was only slowly that the idea of becoming a creative writer gelled.
Wilbur Smith
I was snorting a lot of cocaine and I had lost myself to a great degree. A lot of people, everybody was starting to realize what the coke was all about and they were all starting to get lost.
George Jung
The true Mason ever strives to cultivate Masonry in his/her life to the fullest degree possible.
William Howard Taft
I was lucky. I got university degrees and had a successful tech and finance career. But many of my generation weren’t.
Kemi Badenoch
For example, if it’s a sad scene, I need to feel that way, at least to a slight degree and for a short while, to get it right. Which is why I sometimes listen to music when I’m revising. Music creates moods for me quicker than any other medium.
Donald Ray Pollock
The limits of pleasure are as yet neither known nor fixed, and that we have no idea what degree of bodily bliss we are capable of attaining.
Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
That the God-man died for his people, and that His death is their life, is an idea which was in some degree foreshadowed by the older mystical sacrifices.
William Robertson Smith
When you have a peace movement that has an actual war, it’s different from one that has wars that our country is not totally involved in. During the war in Vietnam, and to a lesser degree the wars in Central America where our country was directly involved, it was easier to organize.
Grace Paley
The true measure of a man is the degree to which he has managed to subjugate his ego.
Albert Einstein
What you are as a single person, you will be as a married person, only to a greater degree. Any negative character trait will be intensified in a marriage relationship, because you will feel free to let your guard down — that person has committed himself to you and you no longer have to worry about scaring him off.
Josh McDowell
There is a certain degree of steampunkishness that creeps into my books.
Jasper Fforde
Anyone having to do with medicine will have looked at Frank Netters art work… I decided I would make him my model… getting my degree in medical illustration and then going on to medical school.
David Bolinsky
I have olive trees and have tried my hand at curing small batches of olives, with varying degrees of success. So sometimes there are leftover olives I use in pasta sauce because they didn’t quite make the grade.
Kyle MacLachlan
Such evidence is not the only kind which produces belief; though positivism maintains that it is the only kind which ought to produce so high a degree of confidence as all minds have or can be made to have through their agreements.
Chauncey Wright
Atlanta is interesting. You have high education rates but there are plenty of regular folks. People have degrees but chop wood on weekends.
Ralphie May
Contempt is a kind of gangrene which, if it seizes one part of a character, corrupts all the rest by degrees.
Samuel Johnson
It is the man who carefully advances step by step…who is bound to succeed in the greatest degree.
Alexander Graham Bell
Good native Taste, tho’ rude, is seldom wrong,
Be it in music, painting, or in song:
But this, as well as other faculties,
Improves with age and ripens by degrees.
John Armstrong
Men of great genius and large heart sow the seeds of a new degree of progress in the world, but they bear fruit only after many years.
Giuseppe Mazzini
Alcohol carries the pleasures of the palate to their highest degree.
Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
I don’t pretend to any exemption from the general lot of parental delusion-I mean that like most other parents I see my child through an atmosphere which illuminates, magnifies, and at the same time refines the object to a degree that amounts to a delusion.
Sara Coleridge
The uncontested absurdities of today are the accepted slogans of tomorrow. They come to be accepted by degrees, by dint of constant pressure on one side and constant retreat on the other – until one day when they are suddenly declared to be the country’s official ideology.
Ayn Rand
At 27 or so I thought, you know, I actually do really want to make money and have a proper life, and I don’t want to be a loser. I know! I’ll go to university and get a proper degree and maybe get a job in media… I went and did an English degree.
Sharon Horgan
On our way to the Super Bowl XV Championship, the Oakland Raiders played a frigid 1981 AFC playoff game in Cleveland, in which the temperatures plunged to -35 degrees. I remember looking up in the stands to see a dedicated Cleveland Brown fan celebrating topless.
Burgess Owens
A constitutional democracy is in serious trouble if its citizenry does not have a certain degree of education and civic virtue.
Phillip E. Johnson
I just know that sameness, repetition, and conceptualizing are the acting craft’s adversaries, and it seems more intelligent to start off within a framework where those things are, to some degree, taken out of your hands.
Jack Nicholson
The degree of our spiritual strength will be in direct proportion to the time we spend in God’s Word.
Elizabeth George
We cannot observe external things without some degree of Thought; nor can we reflect upon our Thoughts, without being influenced in the course of our reflection by the Things which we have observed.
William Whewell
Things come in three major degrees in the human experience, I think. There’s good, bad, and terrible. And as you go down into progressive darkness towards terrible, it gets harder and harder to make subdivisions.
Stephen King
Becoming an artist cannot be taught. A degree and diligence is not a guarantee that one can become an ‘artist.
Scott Kahn
Pleasure admitted in undue degree, enslaves the will, nor leaves the judgment free.
William Cowper
The temple is a place of holiness. It is the most sacred and holy place on earth and should be treated with the greatest degree of reverence and respect.
L. Lionel Kendrick
Perhaps there is a degree of perception at which what is real and what is imagines are one: a state of clairvoyant observation, accessible or possibly accessible to the poet or, say, the acutest poet.
Wallace Stevens
I’m not the one going for a biology degree. I’m just a philosophy major who eats people.
Scott Westerfeld
The measure of your enlightenment is the degree to which you are comfortable with paradox, contradiction, and ambiguity.
Deepak Chopra
Nobody would have ever guessed-I wouldn’t have guessed-the extraordinary degree to which you can reduce social violence through meditation.
John Hagelin
Our great history has been that people came to Michigan because you didn’t have to have a college degree to get a good-paying job. Consequently, we have got a larger number of our population that right now are facing outsourcing, et cetera, without higher or advanced degrees.
Jennifer Granholm
I received my undergraduate degree in engineering in 1939 and a Master of Science degree in mathematical physics in 1941 at Steven Institute of Technology.
Frederick Reines
You are educated. Your certification is in your degree. You may think of it as the ticket to the good life. Let me ask you to think of an alternative. Think of it as your ticket to change the world.
Tom Brokaw
School is temporary. Education is not. If you want to prosper in life: find something that fascinates you and jump all over it. Don’t wait for someone to teach you; your enthusiasm will attract teachers to you. Don’t worry about diplomas or degrees; just get so good that no one can ignore you.
James Marcus Bach
Judge your success by the degree that you’re enjoying peace, health, and love.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Integrity doesn’t come in degrees: low, medium, or high. You either have integrity or you don’t.
Tony Dungy
I can double my density from three-sixty degrees to seven-twenty instantly.
I believe that everyone experiences depression to some degree at some time in their lives. And there are probably millions of people who live with a low level of sadness and heaviness day in and day out.
Joyce Meyer
With all due respect to lawyers, it’s wonderful that you have this intricate knowledge. You break down words to the nth degree. And sometimes I find it rather disgusting. And it goes on and on.
Sonny Bono
When I talk to people who believe in this global warming crap… it’s fake science. They may have educations and degrees that say they are scientists, but they’re not. They’re political hacks and leftists.
Rush Limbaugh
What was exciting in the Victorian Age, would leave a man of franker epoch quite unmoved. The more prudes restrict the permissible degree of sexual appeal, the less is required to make such an appeal effective.
Bertrand Russell
There’s only one degree of freshness — the first, which makes it also the last
Mikhail Bulgakov
In television, the audience has to be comfortable with you, and Ive managed to prove that I can be in American homes to some degree, and not necessarily where everyone knows me, either.
Bruce Boxleitner
If you believe you are an effect of the world around you – that your happiness is dependent on this thing or that person – then you are always going to be a victim of circumstance to one degree or another.
Lee L Jampolsky
Major heat wave in India – 122 degrees today. It was so hot people in India were sweating like Americans waiting to hear if their job is being outsourced to India.
Jay Leno
But Gladiator is one of my favourite adventures because I really loved going into the world. I loved creating the world to the degree where you could almost smell it.
Ridley Scott
Gone are the days in America where we’re able to graduate from High School and perhaps eventually get a job that pays $100,000, that barrier has been put up. If you want to work at McDonald’s, where is your degree?
Jalen Rose
I have a B.S. in Biology from MIT, an M.Sc. in Human Biology and a Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology from Oxford University, and an M.D. from Harvard Medical School. I never intended for so many degrees, but I enjoyed getting them all.
Pardis Sabeti
It is not a field of a few acres of ground, but a cause, that we are defending, and whether we defeat the enemy in one battle, or by degrees, the consequences will be the same.
Thomas Paine
I’ve always enjoyed writing, I graduated with a degree in English; I’ve done bits of journalism.
Michael York
I worked in sales. It was definable, it had a quantifiable approach to accomplishment that had a great deal of importance to me. It had a degree of clarity that I loved. And of course, it was core.
Anne M. Mulcahy
My grandfather John came from Cork. I have six degrees of separation in Ireland.
Duff McKagan
All that young people are promised today are the rewards of a shallow materialism and a degree that is defined primarily as a job credential, one that ironically does not even live up to its own claims of guaranteeing either decent employment or a better way of life.
Henry Giroux
Even in this age of digital manipulation, photographs continue to hold a huge degree of power and meaning. They’re beautiful and sad and complicated because every stoppage of time refers to the motion of time.
Michael Light
I think when people talk about lighter drama, they tend to use that term, not derogatorily, but ‘lighter’ means sort of less to a degree, but if you’re an actor, light drama is often mistaken for easier drama.
Bruno Heller
I didn’t want to become a professor or get tenure or teach or anything. All I wanted to do was get a degree because Louis Leakey said I needed one, which was right, and once I succeeded I could get back to the field.
Jane Goodall
Love, like everything else, exists in a spectrum. Love of another, love of the world, love of God, all these loves are really one love in different degrees of light and density.
Roger Housden
A thousand trills and quivering sounds In airy circles o’er us fly, Till, wafted by a gentle breeze, They faint and languish by degrees, And at a distance die.
Joseph Addison
At the School of Visual Arts in New York, you can get your degree in Net art, which is really a fantastic way of thinking of theater in new ways.
Laurie Anderson
We are on track for a 3.5 deg C rise by 2040 (i.e. 4.2 deg C relative to pre-industrial)… When I look at this data, the trend is perfectly in line with a temperature increase of 6 degrees Celsius, which would have devastating consequences for the planet. We have 5 years to change the energy system, or have it changed
Fatih Birol
The human understanding, from its peculiar nature, easily supposes a greater degree of order and equality in things than it really finds.
Francis Bacon
College has been oversold. It has been oversold to students who end up dropping out or graduating with degrees that don’t help them very much in the job market. It also has been oversold to the taxpayers, who foot the bill for subsidies that do nothing to encourage innovation and economic growth.
Alex Tabarrok
The state can’t give you freedom, and the state can’t take it away. You’re born with it, like your eyes, like your ears. Freedom is something you assume, then you wait for someone to try to take it away. The degree to which you resist is the degree to which you are free.
Utah Phillips
I think being an only child created in me a degree of self-reliance, which I’m glad of. It made me perfectly happy with my own company and perhaps was good conditioning for the protracted solitude of writing books as slowly as I do.
Alan Hollinghurst
I was the same way after graduating with a degree in education. I started to teach and I was wondering: do I really know how to teach?
Laura Bush
Freedom of mind and mind itself have been most fully developed in regions where trade developed at the same time. In all ages, without exception, every intense production of art, ideas, and spiritual values has occurred in some locality where a remarkable degree of economic activity was also manifest.
Paul Valery
All men who live with any degree of serenity live by some assurance of grace.
Reinhold Niebuhr
Society cannot but depend to a disproportionate degree on its capable few to develop and flourish.
Goswami Kriyananda
I need to get better at learning how to stay calm. I’m a bit of a worrier and a stress cadet. Yoga helps me to some degree, but I haven’t been able to figure out meditation yet. I have a feeling it would be very good for me, but unfortunately, I’m still holding it all in until I explode part of my life.
Tricia Helfer
We can know only that we know nothing. And that is the highest degree of human wisdom.
Leo Tolstoy
The nation which indulges towards another an habitual hatred, or an habitual fondness, is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest.
George Washington
Am I aging? The pros and the cons? Well, you know a lot more, at least until the time you start forgetting it all. Actually, aging can be a fun process, to some degree.
Clint Eastwood
I am shy by nature, a person who’s always found something burdensome about human interaction and who probably always will, at least to some degree.
Caroline Knapp
No race that has anything to contribute to the markets of the world is long in any degree ostracized.
Booker T. Washington
The worth of a new idea is invariably determined, not by the degree of its intuitiveness-which incidentally, is to a major extent a matter of experience and habit-but by the scope and accuracy of the individual laws to the discovery of which it eventually leads.
Max Planck
No degree of prosperity can be sufficient to eliminate all misfortune, and sloth is impervious to opportunity.
Dean Koontz
Men’s thoughts and opinions are in a great degree vassals of him who invents a new phrase or re-applies an old epithet. The thought or feeling a thousand times repeated becomes his at last who utters it best.
James Russell Lowell
I think that Walter’s [White] whole career is indicative of a large degree of egocentricity. Perhaps to be generous, you would have to say that he was a product of his period, which was that of self-projection in the name of organizational interest.
Ella Baker
I think people always appreciate somebody else’s informed educated opinion. To the degree that anybody with a computer can offer a journalistic point of view whether or not they have a degree, it sort of alters the validity of you have to place on anyone’s individual comment.
Seth Green
To the degree you have experienced intimacy with God, you won’t be afraid of death because you’re experiencing the first tastes and promises of heaven in this world.
Richard Rohr
What sets apart high-performance teams, however, is the degree of commitment, particularly how deeply committed the members are to one another.
Jon Katzenbach
My degrees are in anthropology, and I have friends who have worked with apes.
Gregory Keyes
But the human character, however it may be exalted or depressed by a temporary enthusiasm, will return by degrees to its proper and natural level, and will resume those passions that seem the most adapted to its present condition.
Edward Gibbon
The degree of loving is measured by the degree of giving.
Edwin Louis Cole
Luis Bunuel’s two semishort surrealist hand grenades (cowritten in varying degrees with Salvador Dali) make a double bill that can restore your faith in the subversions of youth. Pure Spanish-Parisian piss and vinegar.
Luis Bunuel
Getting the degree meant more to me than an NCAA title, being named All-American or winning an Olympic gold medal.
Patrick Ewing
I believe that Man is not the most perfect Being but One, rather that as there are many Degrees of Beings his Inferiors, so there are many Degrees of Beings superior to him.
Benjamin Franklin
The more we study the early Church, the more we realize that it was a society of ministers. About the only similarity between the Church at Corinth and a contemporary congregation, either Roman Catholic or Protestant, is that both are marked, to a great degree, by the presence of sinners.
D. Elton Trueblood
Well, to be clear, I am a scholar of religions with four degrees, including one in the New Testament and fluency in Biblical Greek who has been studying the origins of Christianity for two decades who also happens to be Muslim.
Reza Aslan
I kinda liked ol’ Shakespeare and them guys, you know. I went back and got my master’s just in case. I thought, if I ever needed it, I’d have the sheepskin to show people no matter how dumb I looked, actually I was about half intelligent. I got the degree to let ’em know I wasn’t as dumb as I acted.
Phil Robertson
People who are lonely and depressed are three to 10 times more likely to get sick and die prematurely than those who have a strong sense of love and community. I don’t know any other single factor that affects our health – for better and for worse – to such a strong degree.
Dean Ornish
Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it’s in Hamburger Technology.
Clive James
So far the earth has warmed about a degree Fahrenheit globally averaged. That doesn’t seem like an enormous amount but it’s unlike what we would have expected twenty years ago.
Bill McKibben
You didn’t need a college degree to become one of the people who knew what was really going on. If you paid attention, you could pick things up on your own.
Jeannette Walls
You want to be entertaining to some degree. But honesty is always entertaining to me.
Dito Montiel
I’m a 3rd degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and 2nd degree in karate, and I’m a licensed bodyguard.
Katheryn Winnick
It got up to 94 degrees today – that’s pretty good at my age.
Bob Monkhouse
Narragansett Bay waters are getting warmer — 4 degrees Fahrenheit warmer in the winter since the 1960s.
Sheldon Whitehouse
There is no one, right way to design or develop anything. To a large degree, it needs to reflect the culture  –  especially the innovation culture  –  of a company.
Nathan Shedroff
The unconscious is not a demoniacal monster, but a natural entity which, as far as moral sense, aesthetic taste, and intellectual judgment go, is completely neutral.It only becomes dangerous when our conscious attitude to it is hopelessly wrong. To the degree that we repress it, its danger increases.
Carl Jung
It has been said that self-respect is the gate of heaven, and the most cursory observation shows that a degree of reserve adds vastly to the latent force of character.
Henry Theodore Tuckerman
The world is to be carried forward by truth, which at first offends, which wins its way by degrees, which the many hate and would rejoice to crush.
William Ellery Channing
Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud.His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University.
Mitt Romney
A criminal becomes a popular figure because he unburdens in no small degree the consciences of his fellow man, for now they know once more where evil is to be found.
Carl Jung
If man was the relative of animals, then animals were the relatives of man, and in degrees bearers of that inwardness of which man, the most advanced of their kin, is conscious in himself.
Hans Jonas
I was never a Certified Public Accountant. I just had a degree in accounting. It would require passing a test, which I would not have been able to do.
Bob Newhart
Every man is prompted by the love of himself to imagine that he possesses some qualities superior, either in kind or degree, to those which he sees allotted to the rest of the world.
Samuel Johnson
There are degrees of incompatibility, and there are more factors relevant to upholding democracy and human rights than the operation of neoliberal markets. Perhaps this point can be initially made by reference to the decline of democracy and the erosion of human rights within the United States since the 9/11 attacks.
Richard A. Falk
As I stepped to the stage to pick up my degree, and the locusts sang off in the distance.
Bob Dylan
Crime like virtue has its degrees; and timid innocence was never known to blossom suddenly into extreme license.
Jean Racine
If we openly declare what is wrong with us, what is our deepest need, then perhaps the death and despair will by degrees disappear.
J. B. Priestley
We must intend to live [the new spiritual awareness], to integrate each increased degree of awareness into our daily routine. It only takes one negative interpretation to stop everything.
James Redfield
You know, you don’t have to have money to be a successful businessperson. You don’t need a college degree. You just need a lot of common sense backed up by a willingness to work hard.
Farrah Gray
The degree to which the opportunity to use power effectively is granted to or withheld from individuals is one operative difference between those companies which stagnate and those which innovate.
Rosabeth Moss Kanter
To the degree I was too brash, Too self-confident or too pushy, I apologize.
Newt Gingrich
Harvard produces leaders. People with Harvard degrees go on to become administrators in high-level positions in state educational departments and in public schools around the country.
Christina Hoff Sommers
[Drawing should be] a journey of pleasure. Each step must present to the travellers’ view objects that are eminently interesting, varied in their appearances, and attracting to such a degree as to excite in each individual thus happily employed the desire of knowing all respecting all he sees.
John James Audubon
The people who need to overcome temptation to the highest degree have the hardest time doing it.
Dan Ariely
All literature consists of whatever the writer thinks is cool. The reader will like the book to the degree that he agrees with the writer about what’s cool.
Steven Brust
Fasting is, first and foremost, an exercise for identifying and managing adversity in all its forms. With faith, in full conscience, fasting calls women and men to an extra degree of self-awareness.
Tariq Ramadan
The average kindergartner has seen more than 5,000 hours of TV-more time than it takes to earn a bachelor’s degree.
Without sattva you can never reach the Supreme.
Wherever you are, in whatever station, from there you have to reach sattva in varying degrees because tamas will be reduced only when the mind’s agitations, vikshepas are quietened. As agitations quieten, sattva increases slowly.
Chinmayananda Saraswati
In my teenage years I was put off the idea of a career in flying, because I’d convinced myself that you had to be a boffin with degrees in maths and physics, which were my weakest subjects.
Bruce Dickinson
Kodokan is, to a large degree, a trendsetter in the sport. This school trained outstanding masters and is a kind of Mecca for all judokas. Certainly, I would be pleased to visit, if time permits.
Vladimir Putin
If I would be a young man again and had to decide how to make my living, I would not try to become a scientist or scholar or teacher. I would rather choose to be a plumber or a peddler in hope to find that modest degree of independence still available under present circumstances.
Albert Einstein
The economy in the Valley will need to grow if students want to come back and work with their specialized degrees. We need to develop more to create more opportunities.
Frank Murphy
Natural selection is a mechanism for generating an exceedingly high degree of improbability.
Ronald Fisher
There would not be any absolute necessity for reserve if the world were honest; yet even then it would prove expedient. For, in order to attain any degree of deference, it seems necessary that people should imagine you have more accomplishments than you discover.
William Shenstone
A significant event for me was learning Hank Williams, reconnecting with his music’s simplicity, which inspired me to inhabit the same territory. It’s different, because I grew up on Led Zeppelin, The Stooges and punk, so in that sense I’m mutating country and folk more than a few degrees.
Stone Gossard
By heaven we understand a state of happiness infinite in degree, and endless in duration.
Benjamin Franklin
I believe the approach of the artist and the approach of the environmentalist are fairly close in that both are, to a rather impressive degree, concerned with the affirmation of life.
Ansel Adams
Women who earn a certificate or degree from a community college, especially in STEM-related field, will be ready to move into a good-paying job in the growing global economy. Community colleges also offer mentorship and support that goes far beyond the classroom.
Jill Biden
The true value of a human being can be found in the degree to which he has attained liberation from the self.
Albert Einstein
The interval between a cold expectation and a warm desire may be filled by expectations of varying degrees of warmth or by desires of varying degrees of coldness.
Samuel Alexander
I am a scholar of religions with four degrees, including one in the New Testament and fluency in Biblical Greek, who has been studying the origins of Christianity for two decades, who also happens to be Muslim.
Reza Aslan
I think it was the occasion of the final psychological break with Great Britain, in a way that had clearly not happened to that date, especially in New England and to som degree in the South.
Charles R. Morris
I believe it is crucial to consider the degree to which one woman’s possession of reproductive choice may actually depend on or deepen another woman’s reproductive vulnerability.
Rickie Solinger
No degree of knowledge attainable by man is able to set him above the want of hourly assistance, or to extinguish the desire of fond endearments and tender officiousness; and, therefore, no one should think it unnecessary to learn those arts by which friendship may be gained.
Samuel Johnson
As time goes by, I’m increasingly impressed by how very special and timely it was that we got the degree of national commitment needed to put people on the Moon. For the first time, this nation was united in trying to develop an interplanetary capability. We’ve been trying to repeat that situation ever since.
Buzz Aldrin
The Ping 51-degree makes for a nice transition from the irons. On my 60, it says 8 degrees of bounce, but I grind it to about 5 or 6 degrees. I tried a head with less bounce, but it just didn’t look right.
Tony Finau
I had two different degrees: One in International Relations/Political Science and another degree in Radio and Television Production.
Hannah Simone
A woman without a degree of decency and delicacy is unsexed.
Charlotte Mary Yonge
Cats names are more for human benefit. They give one a certain degree more confidence that the animal belongs to you.
Alan Ayckbourn
General personal principle: You are generally successful to the degree others want you to succeed. So get adopted! And, even more importantly, it’s amazing how much you can get done when you let other people take credit for it.
John Daly
Masters of Sex is the degree I got from Boston College.
Amy Poehler
I started working with friends of mine and that, to some degree, continues.
Jim Jarmusch
A trait no other nation seems to possess in quite the same degree as we do namely, a feeling of almost childish injury and resentment unless the world as a whole recognizes how innocent we are of anything but the most generous and harmless intentions
Eleanor Roosevelt
Common sense in an uncommon degree is what the world calls wisdom.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
I am convinced that we have a degree of delight, and that no small one, in the real misfortunes and pain of others
Edmund Burke
Let him who expects one class of society to prosper in the highest degree, while the other is in distress, try whether one side; of the face can smile while the other is pinched.
Thomas Fuller
I don’t have a college degree, and my father didn’t have a college degree, so when my son, Zachary, graduated from college, I said, “My boy’s got learnin’!”
Robin Williams
I think this century more than any other really has seen the phenomenon of people being uprooted in such numbers, such a degree. They even have a word for it: The refugees. It’s a new word, a 20th Century word, but refugee is actually a misnomer.
Elie Wiesel
If you make something, it’s an artifact. It’s something that somebody or some corporate entity has caused to come into being. A great many human beings have thought about each of the artifacts that surround us. Different degrees of intelligence and attention have been brought to bear on anything.
William Gibson
Look, the world is everywhere: satellites, end tables, the pink and white poinsettias outside the church; reunions and degrees. All those radiant asterisks . . . Soon it will all make sense.
Terrance Hayes
I got into psychology simply because that’s what my sister did, and I grew up in a family that was very like, follow your sister’s footsteps. I went to the same school she went to, did the same degree she did … really had no interest in it, to be honest.
Lilly Singh
Every man is rich or poor according to the degree in which he can afford to enjoy the necessaries, conveniences, and amusements of human life.
Adam Smith
Ability comprehends the power of doing in general, without specifying the quality or degree.
George Crabbe
My mother taught me three things, respect, knowledge-search for knowledge, it’s an eternal journey. That’s like my hair-cut, the line, 360 degrees, find knowledge always. And she taught me to not be quiet, if there’s something on my mind speak it. But also to listen.
Tupac Shakur
The aim of any good constitution is to achieve in a society a high degree of political harmony, so that order and justice and freedom may be maintained.
Russell Kirk
A mutual arrangement, I repeat, is the only satisfactory medium whereby the present system can be carried on with any degree of satisfaction, and in such an arrangement the employers have more to gain than the workers.
James Larkin
Very gifted people may be sociopathic in varying degrees.
Camille Paglia
I’m really interested in modern history, but to fulfill a History degree at Brown you have to do modern and pre-modern.
Emma Watson
Even our hardest prayers are easy for the Omnipotent One to answer because there is no degree of difficulty.
Mark Batterson
It is a problem, not clear in my mind, that [a society without government, as among our Indians] is not the best. But I believe it to be inconsistent with any great degree of population.
Thomas Jefferson
In the same degree that we overrate ourselves, we shall underrate others.
Washington Allston
Some degree of novelty must be one of the materials in almost every instrument which works upon the mind; and curiosity blends itself, more or less, with all our pleasures.
Edmund Burke
Real intimacy is only possible to the degree that we can be honest about what we are doing and feeling.
Joyce Brothers
I doubt if a single individual could be found from the whole of mankind free from some form of insanity. The only difference is one of degree. A man who sees a gourd and takes it for his wife is called insane because this happens to very few people.
Desiderius Erasmus
If it’s zero degrees outside today and it’s supposed to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold is it going to be?
Steven Wright
The degree to which the child-rearing professionals continue to be out of touch with reality is astounding. For example, a widely read manual on breast-feeding, devotes fewer than two pages to the working mother.
Sylvia Ann Hewlett
Charlatanism of some degree is indispensable to effective leadership.
Eric Hoffer
I come from a family of scholars who got their Master’s degrees. To my grandma – and to a lot of people – an education was a way of making it out of the worst parts of their life.
Big Sean
I was partnered with the singer Drew Lachey of the popular group 98 Degrees. Drew and I complemented each other with our strengths. I was good at dancing and teaching dance, and he was a good student and a natural-born ham for the cameras.
Cheryl Burke
When you change your focus to your purpose, you stop worrying about how much money you’re going to make and your job title because those things to some degree are irrelevant if you don’t love your work.
Soledad O’Brien
Really, the potential for, first of all, any college graduate today is enormously good. These are good times for anyone with a college degree today, particularly African Americans. With a college degree today, you really breach the unemployment rate.
Alexis Herman
There are many paths to enlightenment. Some of us who have expanded to a degree of illumination have thereafter preached the dogmatic certainty of one particular path. But enlightenment doesn’t care how you get there. And if you aren’t going to be thinking about it in paradise, then don’t worry about it now.
Thaddeus Golas
Reed College required a thesis for a Bachelor’s degree. Normally a Bachelor’s is sort of like being stamped ‘Prime US Beef.’ They just walk you through, hand out the diplomas and you fill in your name later on.
David Eddings
The closest I ever came to death was masturbating with a 104-degree temperature.
Larry David
Any degree of unemployment worries me.
Gerhard Schroder
I don’t mind women who want to act. That’s fine. It’s odd that men want to act, in that there’s still a degree of vanity associated with it.
Shane Black
The collector attempts always to acquire the best, and his knowledge of what is best is always widening. His is the task of judging between degrees of perfection.
Arthur Davison Ficke
All matter/space has some degree of “self” in it, and this self, or anyway some aspect of the personal, is something which infuses all matter/space and everything we know as matter but now think to be mechanical.
Christopher Alexander
No degree of dullness can safeguard a work against the determination of critics to find it fascinating.
Harold Rosenberg
The only people who need degrees are dentists and brain surgeons.
David Hockney
Its 75 Degrees! In December!
Sarah Dessen
The media and even, to some degree, leaders of women’s organizations don’t understand that the women’s movement is an absolute part of society now. It is in the consciousness, it is taken for granted. It is part of the way women look at themselves, and women are looked at.
Betty Friedan
Men of humor are always in some degree men of genius; wits are rarely so, although a man of genius may, amongst other gifts, possess wit, as Shakespeare.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
I dragged my wife from our honeymoon in Africa and landed her in Ontario, Canada, when it was -40 degrees.
Ryan Reynolds
There are two great truths which from this platform I have proclaimed for many years. The first is that salvation is free to every man who will have it; the second is that God gives salvation to a people whom He has chosen; and these truths are not in conflict with each other in the least degree.
Charles Spurgeon
In 1858 I received the degree of D. S. from the Lawrence Scientific School, and thereafter remained on the rolls of the university as a resident graduate.
Simon Newcomb
My college degree was in theater. But the real reason, if I have any success in that milieu, so to speak, is because I spent a lot of years directing, I spent a lot of years behind the camera
Alton Brown
All pornography is to a degree sadistic – inevitably.
Storm Jameson
To be aware of little, quiet things, you need to be quiet inside. A high degree of alertness is required. Be still. Look. Listen. Be present.
Eckhart Tolle
Most green-collar jobs are middle-skill jobs. That means they require more education that a high-school diploma, but less than a four-year degree.
Van Jones
College athletes used to get a degree in bringing your pencil.
Ruby Wax
It degrades from the equal rank of Citizens all those whose opinions in Religion do not bend to those of the Legislative authority. Distant as it may be in its present form from the Inquisition, it differs from it only in degree.
James Madison
The degree of talent, the size of the gift, is immaterial. All artists must listen, but not all hear great symphonies, see wide canvasses, conceive complex, character-filled novels. No
matter, the creative act is the same, and it is an act of faith.
Madeleine L’Engle
I had known, number one, that there would never be any role for me in the leadership capacity with SCLC. Why? First, I’m a woman. Also, I’m not a minister. And second, I am a person that feels that I have to maintain some degree of personal integrity and be my own barometer of what is important and what is not.
Ella Baker
There is a great degree of comfort with your family when you’re on a TV show.
Gillian Jacobs
I studied at a university in Florence and finished my degree. My mother was very strict about this recipe: You need to get your degree.
Donatella Versace
Ironically enough, in the same way that fear brings to pass what one is afraid of, likewise a forced intention makes impossible what one forcibly wishes… Pleasure is, and must remain, a side-effect or by-product, and is destroyed and spoiled to the degree to which it is made a goal in itself.
Viktor E. Frankl
Let the erring sisters depart in peace; the idea of getting up a civil war to compel the weaker States to remain in the Union appears to us horrible to the last degree.
Jane Swisshelm
I do think that my work has gotten calmer, and that the violence of some of the earlier series was necessary to reach the higher degree of concentration in the later ones.
Rineke Dijkstra
Well, we are terribly divided politically, yes, and, you know, I don’t mean to intimidate you and your listeners but I have a master’s degree in anthropology from the University of Chicago.
Kurt Vonnegut
O, how glorious would it be to set my heel upon the Pole and turn myself 360 degrees in a second!
Joseph Banks
The minds of men are mirrors to one another, not only because they reflect each other’s emotions, but also because those rays of passions, sentiments and opinions may be often reverberated, and may decay away by insensible degrees.
David Hume
When you’re rapping, you do have to perform to a certain degree, but not every rapper is necessarily a gifted actor.
Queen Latifah
When a government lasts a long while, it deteriorates by insensible degrees. Republics end through luxury, monarchies through poverty.
Baron de Montesquieu
I AM is a feeling of permanent awareness. The very center of consciousness is the feeling of I AM. I may forget who I am, where I am, what I am, but I cannot forget that I Am. The awareness of being remains, regardless of the degree of forgetfulness of who, where, and what I am.
Neville Goddard
Listen, here’s the thing about an English degree – if you sat somebody down and asked them to make a list of the writers they admire over the last hundred years, see how many of them got a degree in English.
David Mamet
America is a very fundamentalist society. It’s like Iran in the degree of fanatic religious commitment.
Noam Chomsky
In all pointed sentences, some degree of accuracy must be sacrificed to conciseness.
Samuel Johnson
My mother was working on her college degree throughout my childhood, and being the youngest in the family, that meant being dragged to a lot of her classes. She majored in playwriting, so I was exposed to theatre from a very young age, and it was just the most magical world to me.
Valorie Curry
Strive to make proposed solutions as self-executing as possible. As the degree of discretion increases, so too does bureaucracy, delay, and expense.
Donald Rumsfeld
To whatever degree you listen and follow your intuition, you become a creative channel for the higher power of the universe.
Shakti Gawain
I’m just a public-schoolboy. I’ve got a degree. I’m from a middle-class family in Devon. I’ve got no story.
Chris Martin
If I had taken a doctoral degree, it would have stifled any writing capacity.
Barbara Tuchman
If you throw a frog in a pot of boiling water, it will hop right out. But if you put that frog in a pot of tepid water and slowly warm it, the frog doesn’t figure out what going on until it’s too late. Boiled frog. It’s just a metter of working by slow degrees.
Stephenie Meyer
In the Far Eastern languages we have many different words to describe the varying degrees of reality that a thing, a state of mind or plane of being may have.
Frederick Lenz
To that class we may leave it to refine the vernacular dialects of the country, to enrich those dialects with terms of science borrowed from the Western nomenclature, and to render them by degrees fit vehicles for conveying knowledge to the great mass of the population.
Thomas B. Macaulay
The qualities of bodies, which admit neither intension nor remission of degrees, and which are found to belong to fill bodies within the reach of our experiments, are to be esteemed the universal qualities of all bodies whatsoever.
Isaac Newton
A man’s college and university degrees mean nothing to me until I see what he is able to do with them.
Henry Ford
There’s something I love about how stark the contrast is between January and June in Sweden. In a way, I feel that time doesn’t exist in LA. Sometimes I don’t know if it’s February or April or October, because you’re always sitting outside on the same patio, and it’s 70 degrees.
Alexander Skarsgard
In particular, this arm has 7 degrees-of-freedom that makes the overall motion of the arm very complex so that, before you start driving the arm, you should be very familiar with all the position it can get.
Umberto Guidoni
Carbon dioxide isn’t the only greenhouse gas out there. Other substances, such as water vapor and nitrous oxide, also trap heat to varying degrees.
Jamais Cascio
An inflated sense of self-importance? Absolutely, but I think it comes from Doctor Strange need to control things and that’s what happens to all surgeons, I think. There’s a huge degree of uncertainty and bafflement.
Benedict Cumberbatch
While I thought myself employed only in forming a nomenclature, and while I proposed to myself nothing more than to improve the chemical language, my work transformed itself by degrees, without my being able to prevent it, into a treatise upon the Elements of Chemistry.
Antoine Lavoisier
Management is a far more homely business than its would be scientists suggest, more closely allied to cookery than any other human activity. Like cooking, it rests on a degree of organisation and on adequate resources. But just as no two chefs run their kitchens the same way, so no two managements are the same.
Robert Heller
It was a noteworthy lesson, even for someone who’d been fed a daily diet of italicized lessons: that people in high places, luminaries with advanced degrees in Classics and in possession of excellent manners, can disappoint you as profoundly as anyone else.
Elinor Lipman
All of our lives are governed by a certain degree of faith in bullshit.
Dan Simmons
To the kindly influence of Christianity we owe that degree of civil freedom, and political and social happiness which mankind now enjoys…. Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government, and all blessings which flow from them, must fall with them.
Jedidiah Morse
Beauty means this to one person, perhaps, and that to the other. And yet when any one of us has seen or heard or read that which to us is beautiful, we have known an emotion which is in every case the same in kind, if not in degree; an emotion precious and uplifting.
John Galsworthy
Once the shooting starts, we don’t mind whether it is 43 degrees plus or minus 6 degrees: we just keep working.
In the United Kingdom at various stages, journalism has been the profession of gentlemen amateurs. And some of them even pride themselves on being amateurs. Their quality is not comparable with the quality of intelligence services even if most of them harbor a remarkable degree of corruption and incompetence.
Julian Assange
And that’s how we measure out our real respect for people—by the degree of feeling they can register, the voltage of life they can carry and tolerate—and enjoy. End of sermon. As Buddha says: live like a mighty river. And as the old Greeks said: live as though all your ancestors were living again through you.
Ted Hughes
The infallible criterion by which to distinguish the true from the would-be strategist is the degree of originality of his conceptions. It makes little difference whether this originality is carried to excess, as was the case with Steinitz and Nimzowitsch.
Alexander Alekhine
Who cares how many miles per hour the ball traveled once it left the bat, or how high the ball traveled in degrees, or how many seconds it took to leave the ballpark?
Keith Hernandez
If you want to sail your ship in a different direction, you must turn one degree at a time.
Brian Tracy
You can almost measure where you are in life by the degree to which you have begun looking back rather than ahead.
Ted Koppel
Let this be one invariable rule of your conduct–never to show the least symptom of resentment, which you cannot, to a certain degree, gratify; but always to smile, where you cannot strike.
Lord Chesterfield
It seems to me that everyone on this planet whom I know or have worked with is suffering from self-hatred and guilt to one degree or another. The more self-hatred and guilt we have, the less our lives work. The less self-hatred and guilt we have, the better our lives work, on all levels.
Louise Hay
Maybe people, maybe the world writes things off as impossible a little too quickly, when they really aren’t – when they just haven’t reached out and figured out how to utilize their resources to the fullest degree or created pioneering systems in their lives.
Erik Weihenmayer
The categories of woman and man are too rigid. They’re going to give way to new forces. They already have, to a degree, but for most of us, this drama held sway, and we assumed our positions.
John Maus
The themes I sing about tend to be centered on love, but in the most total, general way 360 degrees of love.
Andrea Bocelli
Many of them who belong to these countries that were former colonial powers have racist attitudes, but their racist attitude is never displayed to the degree that the America’s attitude of racism is displayed. Never.
Malcolm X
You have qualities which I had not before supposed to exist in such a degree in any human creature. You have some touches of the angel in you.
Jane Austen
What most people know but don’t realize they know is that the world is almost entirely solar-powered already. If the sun wasn’t there, we’d be a frozen ice ball at three degrees Kelvin, and the sun powers the entire system of precipitation. The whole ecosystem is solar-powered.
Elon Musk
The degree of polarization that currently exists in Washington is such where I think it’s fair to say if I presented a cure for cancer, getting legislation passed to move that forward would be a nail-biter.
Barack Obama
Never before has a civilization reached such a degree of a contempt for life; never before has a generation, drowned in mortification, felt such a rage to live.
Raoul Vaneigem
The degree of complications and unhappiness in a person’s life corresponds to the degree to which he dwells on the way he thinks the world ought to be rather than the way it really is. and being grateful it isn’t worse, while trying to make it better.
Robert Ringer
There are two parties, so-called, but they’re really factions of the same party, the Business Party.
Noam Chomsky
Secret Societies have existed among all peoples, savage and civilized, since the beginning of recorded history… It is beyond question that the secret societies of all ages have exercised a considerable degree of political influence.
Manly Hall
Latin America, for the first time in 500 years, is moving towards a degree of independence.
Noam Chomsky
If a socialist economy is opened up to increasing degrees of market forces, a point will be reached at which democratic governance becomes a possibility.
Peter L. Berger
There are degrees and kinds of solitude. I know of no solitude so secure as one guarded by a spring flood; nor do the geese, who have seen more kinds and degrees of aloneness than I have.
Aldo Leopold
Change comes from a degree of discomfort that allows for and spurs thought and action.
William Blum
You’re Dominican only if you do this, this, and that. And if you do this and that, you’ll be accepted to a certain degree and if you don’t, people will scorn you for it.
Junot Diaz
Some people see me as dissecting my characters in some kind of heartless, coldblooded, analytical way, when in truth making these movies is a passionate, intensely emotional experience for me. I’m detached from the characters only to the degree that I have to be in order to write honestly about them.
Todd Solondz
What’s really appealing about women’s cycling in America? If you took a poll in the women’s peloton, I would bet you that 90% of the women have college degrees, and a lot of them have Masters. The women’s peloton is very well educated.
Kristin Armstrong
Pure Spirit, one hundred degrees proof – that’s a drink that only the most hardened contemplation-guzzlers indulge in. Bodhisattvas dilute their Nirvana with equal parts of love and work.
Aldous Huxley
God is favorable to those whom he makes to die by degrees; ’tis the only benefit of old age. The last death will be so much the less painful: it will kill but a quarter of a man or but half a one at most.
Michel de Montaigne
Even though I only have a high-school degree, I’m a professional student.
Bill Gates
Introducing someone as a “Negro poet with a University degree” or again, quite simply, the expression, “a great black poet.” These ready-made phrases, which seem in a common-sense way to fill a need-or have a hidden subtlety, a permanent rub.
Frantz Fanon
If your parents are billionaires, that might actually be an obstacle to your own happiness and self-development. If you go to Oxford or Harvard, that might actually thwart your desire to graduate with a science or math degree.
Malcolm Gladwell
For every two degrees the temperature goes up, check-ins at ice cream shops go up by 2%.
Andrew Hogue
I get to be the first doctor in the family [because of the honorary degree they’re giving me].
Eric Idle
a college education I would never propose – a bachelor’s degree won’t even keep you in clothes
Cole Porter
To a degree, the Greek and Roman mythological heroes are just the first superheroes. They appeal to children for much the same reason. These gods and heroes may have powers, but they get angry and they do the wrong thing. They are human too.
Rick Riordan
You have to have faith that if you want people to like your brand, you have to do likeable things. There has to be some degree of trust that, if you’re an enjoyable brand, people will want to spend time with you.
Jeff Chapman
What do you suppose makes all men look back to the time of childhood with so much regret (if their childhood has been, in any moderate degree, healthy or peaceful)? That rich charm, which the least possession had for us, was in consequence of the poorness of our treasures.
John Ruskin
I’ve known a lot of people who were punkers who went on to get academic degrees. Very few of them, however, continued their active role in the punk community. Most of them hung up their leather jacket when they did so.
Greg Graffin
Wickedness comes to its height by degrees. He that dares say of a less sin, Is it not a little one? will ere long say of a greater, Tush, God regards it not!
Anne Bradstreet
My undergraduate degree was in history, and I wish I had been smart enough to really excel at maths, physics, chemistry or biology because… the voyagers and adventurers and real contributors – that’s where they come from.
Michael Moritz
If you commit perjury in a so-called first-degree murder case, and you’re caught red-handed for the entire world to see, and you get only a $200 fine, what kind of message does that send about lying in our courts?
Johnnie Cochran
It is really no surprise that, in a media world that has been so compromised by an invasion of political partisans and inarticulate airheads with communications degrees, a fake journalist can seem more trustworthy than the real thing.
David Horsey
Here’s a foolproof method for keeping America safe. Always do the exact 180-degree opposite of whatever [Jimmy] Carter says, as quickly as possible.
Ann Coulter
If you’re crazy enough to put your hat into the ring of speculation and punditry, you’re going to get some turbulence. But if it’s coming from some journalist with a comfortable degree of body fat, I’m not losing any sleep over it.
Henry Rollins
Everyone is psychic to some degree, and really successful paranormal investigators even if they do not realize it are using their own psychic ability to sense the environment.
Rosemary Ellen Guiley
At forty-five degrees, the sky will burn. Fire to approach the great new city; in an instant, a great scattered flame will leap up, when one will want to get evidence from the Normans.
I think that we all enjoy silliness to varying degrees but I think everyone can enjoy a relatable thing if it is expressed in a funny way.
Paul F. Tompkins
No degree of speculative knowledge of religion is any certain sign of true piety.
Jonathan Edwards
Aside from what it teaches you, there is simply the indescribable degree of peace that can be achieved on a sailing vessel at sea. I guess a combination of hard work and the seemingly infinite expanse of the sea – the profound solitude – that does it for me.
Billy Campbell
I never really had a real career trajectory idea. I just like a lot of different kind of movies, I wanna make a lot of different kind of movies, and to some degree you follow opportunity and to the other degree you have to create your own opportunity.
David Gordon Green
I’ve seen with my own students, community colleges offer an affordable route to four-year college degrees and good paying jobs.
Jill Biden
Bonaparte’s wish is Peace, nay that he is afraid of war to the last degree.
Charles James Fox
Pride may be allowed to this or that degree, else a man cannot keep up his dignity.
John Selden
You can only really judge yourself in comparison to other people. How bad you are, but you’re not as bad as someone else. So it’s degrees of losing.
John Cusack
Man becomes great exactly in the degree in which he works for the welfare of his fellow-men.
Mahatma Gandhi
It must be admitted that there is a degree of instability which is inconsistent with civilization. But, on the whole, the great ages have been unstable ages.
Alfred North Whitehead
Friendship is the highest degree of perfection in society.
Michel de Montaigne
Two things made this country great: White men & Christianity. The degree these two have diminished is in direct proportion to the corruption and fall of the nation. Every problem that has arisen (sic) can be directly traced back to our departure from God’s Law and the disenfranchisement of White men.
Don Davis
I have a lot of influences. I’m American-schooled. I’m classically trained. I’m a pretty universal student, if you will. I have a lot of degrees, which really don’t pay the rent. I have two doctorate degrees, I have a bachelor’s degree, but I’m still a cook.
Emeril Lagasse
The gift of imagination is by no means an exclusive property of the artist; it is a gift we all share; to some degree or other all of us, all of you, are endowed with the powers of fantasy.
Leonard Bernstein
The student-athlete should control everything that happens. From figuring out what kind of a degree they want to what type of a program they want to play for, they should control it all.
Billy Kennedy
They went to university because someone, at a time when universities seemed important, said that in order to rise in the world, you had to have a degree. And thus the world was deprived of some excellent gardeners, bakers, antique dealers, sculptors, and writers.
Paulo Coelho
We have reached in this country an amazing degree of general prosperity, with American business on the whole no longer facing an uphill climb.
Charles M. Schwab
I have a journalism degree, but I’d rather be the person who is being written about rather than the person who is writing.
Chris Jericho
I believe that before anybody makes the journey to the other side, we have to know on a soul level that we are leaving, whether it’s an accident or illness, and we prepare ourselves to a certain degree that we won’t be there in the future.
John Edward
People who are enlightened in previous lifetimes have a certain degree of difficulty in regaining their enlightenment. Sometimes it comes in childhood. Sometimes it takes many years to reintegrate the personality structure that they gained when they first entered into this world.
Frederick Lenz
Our camera does not produce pretty pictures, but exact duplications that, through our renunciation of photographic effects, turn out to be relatively objective. The photo can optically replace its object to a certain degree. This takes on special meaning if the object cannot be preserved.
Bernd Becher
The Constitution gives us a standard to follow. We cannot define impeachable offenses to a greater degree than the language of the Constitution. But we all agree the issue is the public trust. Our duty is not to punish anyone. And our challenge is to avoid pettiness.
Asa Hutchinson
A man may sink by such slow degrees that, long after he is a devil, he may go on being a good churchman or a good dissenter and thinking himself a good Christian.
George MacDonald
God has not chosen to save us without crosses; as He has not seen fit to create men at once in the full vigor of manhood, but has suffered them to grow up by degrees amid all the perils and weaknesses of youth.
Francois Fenelon
Personally, I experience the greatest degree of pleasure in having contact with works of art. They furnish me with happy feelings of an intensity that I cannot derive from other sources.
Albert Einstein
To possess a high degree of consciousness, to be always aware of yourself in relation to the world, to live in the permanent tension of knowledge, means to be lost for life.
Emile M. Cioran
Knowledge has three degrees–opinion, science, illumination. The means or instrument of the first is sense; of the second, dialectic; of the third, intuition.
You take 35 degrees out of 360 degrees and call it a photo. No individual photo explains anything. That’s what makes photography such a wonderful and problematic medium.
Joel Sternfeld
Convinced that the people are the only safe depositories of their own liberty, and that they are not safe unless enlightened to a certain degree, I have looked on our present state of liberty as a short-lived possession unless the mass of the people could be informed to a certain degree.
Thomas Jefferson
Americans believe if you go to college, you have something to fall back on, which makes sense. I don’t have any degrees. If I hadn’t become a golfer, I have no idea what I would be doing with my life.
Stuart Appleby
The degree of notoriety I have is fine and easy. There’s nothing hysterical about it.
Bill Nighy
For all men being originally equals, no one by birth could have the right to set up his own family in perpetual preference to all others forever, and tho’ himself might deserve some decent degree of honours of his cotemporaries, yet his descendants might be far too unworthy to inherit them.
Thomas Paine
Women are just much better at getting degrees than men. It seems that school at every level plays to the natural strengths of women more than it does to men.
Hanna Rosin
There is nothing one fears more or is more ashamed of than not being oneself. Yet few people realize even an approximation of their true potential. Most people must live with varying degrees of the shame and fear of not being fully in control of themselves.
William S. Burroughs
I didn’t get the degree because in my last year, for my thesis film I made a feature called Permanent Vacation and they’d given me a scholarship, the Louis B Mayer fellowship and they made a mistake.
Jim Jarmusch
My Democratic colleagues, many of whom hold law degrees, should know better than to intentionally oversimplify court rulings to mislead the public and score political points.
Thom Tillis
global warming. every day i leave my house and think, “was it this hot last year?” the heat this summer here in LA and in most of the US has been unbearable. i can’t remember another time when it was 105 degrees fahrenheit out here (40.5 celsius), and that’s the kind of weather we’ve been having pretty much every day.
Mike Shinoda
In a country of such recent civilization as ours, whose almost limitless treasures of material wealth invite the risks of capital and the industry of labor, it is but natural that material interests should absorb the attention of the people to a degree elsewhere unknown.
Alfred Adler
As a general rule, those truths which we highly relish, and which shed a degree of practical light upon the things which we are required to give up for God, are leadings of Divine grace, which we should follow without hesitation.
Francois Fenelon
There is a certain degree of satisfaction in having the courage to admit one’s errors. It not only clears up the air of guilt and defensiveness, but often helps solve the problem created by the error
Dale Carnegie
A main part of the struggle of art has been to make an art that is direct, simple, humane, unconnected with powers that be in their essence… To the degree that it is connected with the bourgeoisie via the marketplace and so on is not necessarily an artist’s problem.
Robert Motherwell
Im not trying to stay in the same place and Im not trying to compete with whats currently in fashion. That would be dishonest. But, at the same time, Im different and the music reflects that to some degree.
Eddie Money
A degree on the wall, without labels on your back, is nothing.
Tyler Perry
I would describe myself as a “budding adventurer.” I’ve transitioned away from being a straight-up backpacker, but I think I need another trip or two to get the adventurer degree.
Andrew Skurka
The essays in The Great Taos Bank Robbery were my project to win a Master of Arts degree in English when I quit being a newspaper editor and went back to college.
Tony Hillerman
To a greater or lesser degree, the project of the self becomes translated into one of the possession of desired goods and the pursuit of artificially framed styles of life. (…) Not just lifestyles, but self-actualisation is packaged and distributed according to market criteria.
Anthony Giddens
I think you can be cynical about religion on occasion, and certainly skeptical about the degree to which some people use religion to manipulate other people.
Peter Jennings
I was very average in the social label scale going through school. I was neither the coolest person in school, nor did I suffer the slings and arrows of being made fun of to such a degree that I couldn’t get through the day.
Jim Parsons
I will try to account for the degree of my aesthetic emotion. That, I conceive, is the function of the critic.
Clive Bell
There are a lot of things you can do with a law degree background, but I just didn’t have a passion for it.
Matthew McGrory
Broadway is another monster. I’ve been touring since I was 12 years old and I love being on the road – one day you’re here, next day it’s snowing, and the next you are in a desert and it’s 110 degrees. So I guess I’m kind of used to the madness physically that you go to when you are an entertainer. But it’s been great.
Ricky Martin
I will wear tights even if it’s 100 degrees outside. Tights are my safety blanket.
Zooey Deschanel
Confronting a stadium audience, you can’t see the whites of their eyes. It’s just an amorphous mass of noise and, of course, you can’t see the alleged billions watching at home either, so the degree to which you are intimidated is quite low.
Rowan Atkinson
Good is done by degrees.
George Crabbe
I could have a degree in music and come on the show, and Simon could still say ‘You stink’.
Clay Aiken
Men commonly couple with their idea of marriage a slight degree at least of sensuality; but every lover, the world over, believesin its inconceivable purity.
Henry David Thoreau
It’s too late to stop climate change, that’s for sure, but we can still influence the degree of changes and the degree of impacts. We can prepare for a softer landing.
Hermann E. Ott
The American people are extraordinarily comfortable, affluent, and secure. It’s easy for us to make the argument that God’s purpose is being fulfilled through history and through the rise of American power. And to some degree, it probably is.
Walter Russell Mead
Wisdom is the most-sought intellectual degree whose subjects are regularly learned throughout life with an open mind in an open university called life and taught by a teacher who is none other than self-experience only.
All existing things upon this earth, which have knowledge of their own existence, possess, some in one degree and some in another, the power of thought, accompanied by perception, which is the awakening of thought by the effects of external objects upon the senses.
Augustus De Morgan
Especially with sports cars, when you have got so many cars on the track with various degrees of competitiveness, then something will happen. It’s the nature of racing, the law of averages. If you want to be a front-runner then you are going to have to push very hard, and collisions can happen.
Allan McNish
I really want to go back to school and finish up my sociology degree.
Alicia Sacramone
I love sight gags and broad stuff, but you can get to such a subtle degree, especially with CG animation.
Peter Sohn
I make films because I have not learned anything else and I know I can do it to a certain degree. And it is my duty because this might be the inner chronicle of what we are. We have to articulate ourselves, otherwise we would be cows in the field.
Werner Herzog
There is a strong link between the following three things: exporting, manufacturing and the degree of saving by the population. It’s complicated, but if the population doesn’t save, the economy will not tend to export as much, and if it doesn’t export as much, it won’t manufacture enough.
Evan Davis
No doubt exists that all women are crazy; it’s only a question of degree.
W. C. Fields
At my house, I have a wine and beer fridge. It’s got everything. The beer is at 38 degrees, and the wine is at 50 degrees. We take it seriously, but I’m actually not that big of a drinker.
Molly Qerim
I mean my point as an artist is I’m on my own little weird journey across the sky here and whether or not anybody’s listening, or listening to the degree I would like them to, at the end of the day has to be an inconsequential thing because I can’t chase this culture.
Billy Corgan
The spiritual (i.e. the supersensory) has many degrees; thus, the term ‘spiritual’ is used both for the scale of degrees away from the physical towards the spirit, but also only for the spiritual proper.
Piet Mondrian
With grown children, we can look back at both our mistakes and what we did well in our parenting, having conversations with a greater degree of honesty than was possible before. In getting older themselves, our adult children may begin to comprehend the burdens and strengths we carried from our own parents.
Wendy Lustbader
There is a method in man’s wickedness; it grows up by degrees.
Francis Beaumont
The appeal of the spectrally macabre is generally narrow because it demands from the reader a certain degree of imagination and a capacity for detachment from everyday life.
H. P. Lovecraft
We need to do as much as we can from every direction or we will surpass that two-degree climate increase. Actually, the science is showing we are already en route to surpassing two degrees.
Ian Somerhalder
Religious freedom is too sacred a right to be restricted or prohibited in any degree without convincing proof that a legitimate interest of the state is in grave danger.
Frank Murphy
Evolution is always the work of pioneers, and their followers are always small in number. This following is not a clique; it is the result of all the existing social forces; it is composed of all those who through innate or acquired capacity are ready to represent the existing degree of human revolution.
Piet Mondrian
The unemployment rate today for people with our-year college degrees is 4.1%, which is almost none. That’s people switching jobs basically. That tells you that education is the only way up and the only way out. If that is the fact, then we’ve got to get more of it for more people.
Thomas Friedman
Those who have arrived at any very eminent degree of excellence in the practice of an art or profession have commonly been actuated by a species of enthusiasm in their pursuit of it. They have kept one object in view amidst all the vicissitudes of time and torture.
John Knox
There are problems with nursing – such as the issue of nurses all having to do degrees these days. But that doesn’t mean to say the entire infrastructure of nursing is falling about and that it is populated by unfeeling psychopaths, which is, frankly, the implication sometimes.
Jo Brand
Let the degree of egotism be the measure of confidence.
Johann Kaspar Lavater
To decide to film a movie again shot by shot, you must be masochistic to a certain degree because it is a much greater challenge.
Michael Haneke
In Britain, any degree of success is met with envy and resentment.
Christopher Lee
The denigration of those we love always detaches us from them in some degree. Never touch your idols: the gilding will stick to your fingers.
Gustave Flaubert
German is of stone, limestone, pudding stone, marble, granite even, and so to a considerable degree is English, whereas French is bronze and gives out a metallic resonance with tones that neither German nor English tolerate.
Bernard Berenson
I get homesick for snow and for winter and for seasons and, really, for weather patterns. But L.A. has some of the best weather, so who can complain when it’s 80 degrees and sunny?
Darby Stanchfield
The degree of a nation’s civilization can be seen in the way it treats its prisoners
Fyodor Dostoevsky is about using the idea that we are all connected to accomplish something good. It is my hope that Six Degrees will soon be something more than a game or a gimmick. It will also be a force for good, by bringing a social conscience to social networking.
Kevin Bacon
Taught to regard a part of our own Species in the most abject and contemptible Degree below us, we lose that Idea of the dignity of Man which the Hand of Nature had implanted in us, for great and useful purposes.
George Mason
We never had it so good: Every person alive today derives great benefit from comforts and pleasures that were not available in the past. All of the latest technological advances serve us to a remarkable degree. For all this we should be full of appreciation and gratitude.
Zelig Pliskin
God grants us an uncommon life to the degree we surrender our common one.
Max Lucado
The writer’s language is to some degree the product of his own action; he is both the historian and the agent of his own language.
Paul de Man
Wanting to be on television is a mental illness. Wanting to be president of the United States, wanting to be an actor – these are degrees of the same mental illness. If you need to be approved of simultaneously by more people than are in this room now, there’s a problem.
Keith Olbermann
There’s a lot more to competence than a law degree and a modicum of courtroom skill.
Fred Thompson
I was, if you like, a successful schoolboy in that I had a degree of talent in all the required things that make you a success at school.
Damian Lewis
This process of election affords a moral certainty that the office of President will seldom fall to the lot of any many who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications.
Alexander Hamilton
Again, most of the chief distinctions marked by economic terms are differences not of kind but of degree.
Alfred Marshall
I certainly identify with the role of mentor and, to some degree, maybe teacher. I do a lot of work with kids at the Old Vic.
Kevin Spacey
If women are doing a Ph.D., they have a conflict between raising a family or finishing the degree, which is just at the worst time – between the ages of 25 to 30 or whatever it is. It ruins the five years of their lives.
Freeman Dyson
Our civilization depends critically on software, and we have a dangerously low degree of professionalism in the computer fields
Bjarne Stroustrup
Maybe, love is always forgiveness, to a degree.
Joyce Carol Oates
Maybe men are separated from each other only by the degree of their misery
Francis Picabia
With respect to physical existence, one needs little, and to the degree that one needs less, the more perfect one is.
Soren Kierkegaard
The proper condition of the human is not bovine placidity… the highest degree of tension that can be creatively borne.
Brian Swimme
I’ve been acting since I was a kid, so I just feel confident in the fact that I can do it to some degree. I’ve never thought I was amazing; I’ve just thought, ‘I know this, I can do it.
Emily Browning
I think she [Gina Torres] loved being on the show [Suits], and we’d loved having her. She wanted to do it to some degree sooner rather than later, so we tried to figure out a way to make it work for both of us so that she could enjoy her life a little bit more.
Aaron Korsh
To see the way that [my mother] held our family together after my dad passed away, and then went to college after my youngest sister went off to school on her own, and mom went and got a college degree in her 60s is just incredibly inspiring. So, I would just say my folks.
Mike Pence
I do try to speak of positive things. I still try to, like, present two sides of the story, and I do try to relate to life in a 360 degree and not be one-dimensional. But by all means, manage expectations.
We must contemplate what the meaning of being “educated” is. Some people think a person with plenty of degrees is an educated one. But I believe a person who can judge a situation correctly and make timely decisions is more important.
Aung San Suu Kyi
Attempted murder should carry the same penalty as first-degree murder. Otherwise, you’re simply rewarding incompetence.
Burt Prelutsky
The only orthodox object of the institution of government is to secure the greatest degree of happiness possible to the general mass of those associated under it.
Thomas Jefferson
“You are pure and perfect, and what you call sin does not belong to you”. Sins are low degrees of Self-manifestation; manifest your Self in a high degree.
Swami Vivekananda
I was fortunate in that I attended university in Canada in the early 1970s when you could take a true liberal arts degree with no programmes, majors or minors.
O.R. Melling
The influence of the leaders is due in very small measure to the arguments they employ, but in a large degree to their prestige. The best proof of this is that, should they by any circumstance lose their prestige, their influence disappears.
Gustave Le Bon
As a result, socialism and communism, in particular, use government to suppress religion to such a degree as to leave the one true God out entirely.
Tony Evans
It is an axiom in my mind that our liberty can never be safe but in the hands of the people themselves, and that too of the people with a certain degree of instruction. This it is the business of the state to effect, and on a general plan.
Thomas Jefferson
There were no surprises, because when you sell a pilot based on a pitch, no matter how great the script is, it’s going to look different and feel different from what someone imagines in their head. There will always be varying degrees of disappointment or confusion.
Jennifer Konner
Only a fighting nation can make itself responsible for world peace, and such a nation must organize its material resources and manpower with the highest possible degree of efficiency.
Chiang Kai-shek
Remember, constantly, that when you talk about ‘tense of a subjunctive,’ you’re not talking about time. You’re slipping through degrees of reality.
C. J. Cherryh
Twelve days north of Hopeless and a few degrees south of Freezing to Death
Cressida Cowell
a fair degree of literacy of speech … is increasingly rare in politicians and not necessarily regarded as an asset.
Rae Foley
I don’t know if it’s just me, but I hate going to arenas where it’s 60 degrees outside, and it’s 50 degrees inside.
Gilbert Arenas
I’ve always kind of ripped from real life to some degree or at least how I’m feeling in the moment. In fact, maybe that’s really it. In anything I’ve ever written, all the characters sound like me, which I don’t think is a bad thing.
Kevin Smith
I cannot think of a single word to describe what we feel. I think we all feel it, to varying degrees. Perhaps in some other language there is a word for ‘the world is terribly wrong.’ That feeling of stun and unbelief and abandonment and shock and horror and distress.
David Levithan
In school, many of us procrastinate and then successfully cram for tests. We get the grades and degrees we need to get the jobs we want, even if we fail to get a good general education.
Stephen Covey
Ignorance in this degree, concentrated in both the head and belly of a lumbering superpower, is now a problem for the entire world.
Sam Harris
We ultimately have to find truth in the material, and I think that transfers onto the screen. Obviously there’s varying degrees of it, and we don’t get it right all the time [laughs], but I think when it feels grounded, it’s because we recognize the truth in the material.
Ian Somerhalder
We have faith in the potentialities of others, of ourselves, and of mankind because, and only to the degree to which, we have experienced the growth of our own potentialities, the reality of growth in ourselves, the strength of our own power of reason and love.
Erich Fromm
With pop music, the format dictates the form to a big degree. Just think of the pop single. It has endured as a form even in the download age because bands conform to a strict format, and work, often very productively, within the parameters.
David Byrne
For whatever be the knowledge which
we are able to obtain of God, either by
perception or reflection, we must of
necessity believe that He is by many
degrees far better than what we
perceive Him to be.
There needs to be a similar degree of flexibility and generosity in the recognition of the humaneness and worth of people who we generally consider as adversaries.
Jimmy Carter
There’s a degree of deception in silence.
Don Lemon
We must prioritize postsecondary enrollment so that our students are earning degrees and credentials that get them into the workforce and contributing to Connecticut’s economy.
Ned Lamont
The knowledge of languages was very useful. I have a university degree in foreign languages and literature.
Emma Bonino
I’m able to give a voice to the athletes around the world – use my degree for something other than the power play.
Angela Ruggiero
Those songs [from church], I think, shaped to some degree how I would evolve as a writer, pentameter of songs, the melodies of those kind of hillbilly hymns – I used to refer to them – because they were not Southern gospel as much as they were passed down from Scottish Welsh Protestant hymnals.
Dwight Yoakam
It’s ‘Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, except there’s just one degree, and Kevin Bacon is Hitler. Can I play? Let’s see. Mother Teresa had a mustache. Hitler had a mustache. Mother Teresa is Hitler!
Lewis Black
I went to law school and took a law degree, and counseled all my clients to plead insanity.
Warren Zevon
Apparently the complete works of Shakespeare packed quite a wallop. To think, my mother said I’d never find use for an English degree. Ha! I’d like to see her knock someone silly with an apron and a cookie press.
Rachel Vincent
When a man ends up in the White House who boasts about not having a clue and who says that specialist knowledge is elite nonsense, then a critical point has been reached. Then you will have an obviously irresponsible man sitting in a position that requires the utmost degree of responsibility.
Martin Schulz
The measure of a man’s success must be according to his ability. The advancement he makes from the station in which he was born gives the degree of his success.
Walter Besant
We should prepare our future workforce differently. It isn’t just advanced STEM degrees. There are many jobs you can do without advanced degrees.
Ginni Rometty
It can be considered a rule that the probable duration of an Empire may be prognosticated by the degree to which its rulers believe in their own propaganda.
Doris Lessing
Images are altered in many ways, to many degrees, and for many reasons, so it’s important for viewers to be informed of both.
John Paul Caponigro
The form of government which communicates ease, comfort, security, or, in one word, happiness, to the greatest number of persons, and in the greatest degree, is the best.
John Adams
Coming out involves varying degrees of difficulty that are affected by class, race, religion, and geography.
Lance Loud
Growing up in India, I knew all I needed to change the world was one good opportunity, and I prepared myself for it. When that opportunity came – in the form of the chance to earn an engineering degree – I was ready.
Naveen Jain
There is no such thing as evil. Only relative degrees of good.
Meher Baba
As a storyteller, you also don’t want to make people feel like they’re left out, like other people who have read the book have an interior knowledge of this show, and the degree of difficulty in watching it is much higher.
Damon Lindelof
For me, the desire exists less to get myself a degree than to just go and have the whole college experience, and throw myself into the brain pool and see if I can swim.
Joshua Jackson
War is a sin. War is the highest degree of immorality. War is inhuman insanity for it kills sacred human lives wholesale. How can there still be any war on our miraculous planet?
Robert Muller
People seem always actually to know, with a degree of pain that has required the comfort of fairy tales, that when you are dressed in any particular way at all, you are revealed rather than hidden.
Anne Hollander
The first principle of the market economy is that it is comprised of many small buyers and sellers, which implies a substantial degree of equity. Another fundamental market principle is that costs are internalized in the producer’s price.
David Korten
Once I got my business degree I realized I didn’t want to do business anymore. My passion started to kick in and say, “Are you really sure this is what you want to do with the rest of your life? Are you 100% positive?”
Jay Ellis
Your chances of success are directly proportional to the degree of pleasure you desire from what you do. If you are in a job you hate, face the fact squarely and get out.
Michael Korda
The greatest dangers have their allurements, if the want of success is likely to be attended with a degree of glory. Middling dangers are horrid, when the loss of reputation is the inevitable consequence of ill success.
Lord Chesterfield
…99 percent confident that the world really was getting warmer and that there was a high degree of probability that it was due to human-made greenhouse gases.
James Hansen
There is a degree of wretchedness and want among the lower class of people which is not anywhere so common as among the Spanish and Portuguese settlements.
William Bligh
We boil at different degrees.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
You will trust God to the degree you know you are loved by Him.
Brennan Manning
People don’t know how awesome Minnesota is… I love it up here. And when I was playing up here, I loved every second of it, even if it was minus 20 degrees.
Christian Laettner
I consider that there are different degrees of civilization and there are many different ways of expressing it. But one is civilized or is not.
Flora Lewis
One of the great things about Lanai is that the weather is always fabulous. Always 82 degrees and sunny. The problem is that, like California now, Lanai needs more water.
Larry Ellison
I always start drawing any job by planning out to some degree the locales and trying to nail the characters. If they’re existing characters, I’ll draw them several times on rough paper just to get a feeling for them. The ideal when you’re drawing a comic is to have everything in your head, not to have to refer to notes.
Dave Gibbons
You do a movie, depending on the character, there’s some degree of makeup involved, especially when you’re playing a vampire and you’re all white and kind of dead. Sleeves, regarding costumes, there are generally sleeves, which I appreciate. I think we all do.
Johnny Depp
To that class we may leave it to refine the vernacular dialects of the country, to enrich those dialects with terms of science borrowed from the Western nomenclature, and to render them by degrees fit vehicles for conveying knowledge to the great mass of the population.
Thomas Babington Macaulay
I’m very distressed that the report was leaked early so that the initial headline said ‘dismissed, fired.’ That’s 180 degrees from the arrangement we have potentially.
Tony La Russa
There is also a perfection of degrees, by which a person performs all the commands of God, with the full exertion of all his powers, without the least defect. This is what the law of God requires, but what the saints cannot attain to in this life.
Charles Buck
The University of Google is where I got my degree from.
Jenny McCarthy
Cage’s Music of Changes was a further indication that the arts in general were beginning to consciously deal with the given material and, to varying degrees, liberating them from the inherited, functional concepts of control.
Earle Brown
Bad improvisers block action, often with a high degree of skill. Good improvisers develop action.
Malcolm Gladwell
Politicians read the polls that show 85 or 90 percent of the voters profess a belief in God, so they identify themselves with religion, often only to the degree necessary to reach the constituency they are targeting.
Jack Germond
My husband had an education. He had a degree in Literature. I married into a camp of literary types.
Joni Mitchell
If society is to progress on a truly humanistic basis, without being subject to mental epidemics and virulent social diseases to which the subconscious falls an easy victim, the personal consciousness of every individual should be cultivated to the highest degree possible.
Boris Sidis
August. We were arguing. You want love to be like this every day don’t you? 92 degrees even in the shade.
Jeanette Winterson
It is not for me to change you. The question is, how can I be of service to you without diminishing your degrees of freedom?
R. Buckminster Fuller
Robots may gradually attain a degree of ‘self-awareness’ and consciousness of their own.
Michio Kaku
And it was important to my parents that I get my degree in 4 years, because “Money doesn’t grow on trees.” [LOL] I will support my son in whatever he wants to do professionally, but he will go to college, too. My husband and I are in concert on that.
Wendy Williams
For my Oxford degree, I had to translate French and German philosophy (as it turned out, Descartes and Kant) at sight without a dictionary. That meant Germany for my first summer vacation, to learn the thorny language on my own.
Paul Engle
A nation will prosper to the degree that it honors it’s teachers.
I was a make believe ethnographer: treating New Yorkers like an explorer would treat Zulus – searching for the rawest snapshot, the zero degree of photography.
William Klein
We had moved cross-country from upstate New York to Kansas in the heat wave of 1980, with two cars, no air-conditioning, and a black dog. I can still see the infernal temperature of a hundred and nineteen degrees on a bank sign somewhere near Ohio.
Kevin Young
I cannot claim to thoroughly enjoy coaching, because it is very hard work if you are even moderately conscientious. Nevertheless it does provide a degree of satisfaction – not to mention a steady income, which is why I do it occasionally.
Nigel Short
And perfect happiness? Man, that’s a…the pool is about 92 degrees, the Jacuzzi is about 102 and an avocado farm.
Jamie Foxx
Wave the flag, wave the Bible, wave your sex or your business degree, whatever you want, just don’t wave that thing at me.
Bruce Cockburn
Any experience deeply felt makes some men better and some men worse. When it has ended, they share nothing but the recollection of a commitment in which each was tested and to some degree found wanting. […] The consequences of the journey change the voyager so much more than the embarking or the arrival.
Murray Kempton
Marble flooring is to a Punjabi what a foreign degree is to a Tamilian
Chetan Bhagat
My definition of Man is, a Cooking Animal. The beasts have memory, judgement, and all the faculties and passions of our mind, in a certain degree; but no beast is a cook….Man alone can dress a good dish; and every man whatever is more or less a cook, in seasoning what he himself eats.
James Boswell
Busy work brings after ease; Ease brings sport and sport brings rest; For young and old, of all degrees, The mingled lot is best.
Joanna Baillie
It is true that liberty is not free, nor is it easy. But tyranny – even varying degrees of it – is much more difficult, and much more expensive. The time has come to rein in the federal government, put it on a crash diet, and let the people keep their money and their liberty.
Ron Paul
The degree of success that you attain in all of your physical, mental and spiritual undertakings is dependent upon the strength and clarity of your finite mind and your ability to access your infinite mind.
