I am on sort of a diet in terms of the Internet. It’s the sheer quantity. It’s the Niagara of opinion, of information. It’s not that I have any kind of compassion fatigue. I just insist on having a life.
Larry Gelbart
When people want to sound smart, they add syllables to words, words to sentences, sentences to paragraphs, paragraphs to books. They try to make up in quantity and complexity what they lack in quality. That’s bullshit! They’re just hiding their bullshit!

Quantity has a quality all its own.
Joseph Stalin
The quantity of a man’s wealth will not last long if his generous nature is not balanced with the size of his property.
Thiruvalluvar
Quality training is what I do now; before it was a combination of both quality and quantity. Now I’m not trying to be a world-class athlete, I don’t need to train at that level. It’s about being fit, fit for life.
Jackie Joyner-Kersee
What does the money machine eat? It eats youth, spontaneity, life, beauty, and, above all, it eats creativity. It eats quality and sh*ts quantity.

Carlo M. Cipolla
Not that she objected to solitude. Quite the contrary. She had books, thank Heaven, quantities of books. All sorts of books.

Mario Batali
Logic, like whiskey, loses its beneficial effect when taken in too large quantities.
Lord Dunsany

Mahatma Gandhi
Prosperity has nothing to do with the quantity of money that we have in our pockets, but rather with the quantity of goods that we can buy.
Maxime Bernier
I said I preferred Daytona to LeMans if I were to race. LeMans is a great event, don’t get me wrong, but here in the U.S. is where I turned my life around, where I have a lot of friends, where I feel have my greatest following – not in terms of quantity but of quality – of racing fans.
Alex Zanardi
It would be a very sharp & trying experience to me to think that I have an affliction which God never sent me, that the bitter cup was never filled by his hand, that my trials were never measured out by him, nor sent to me by his arrangement of their weight and quantity.
Charles Spurgeon
Rural communities and our nation’s economy also stand to benefit from broadband expansion. Rural schools can expand the quantity and quality of educational programming. Rural communities can attract businesses and investment.
Abigail Spanberger
My wealth is measured not in money but in photographs, not in quantity but creativity.
Destin Sparks
It is clear that Economics, if it is to be a science at all, must be a mathematical science … simply because it deals with quantities… As the complete theory of almost every other science involves the use of calculus, so we cannot have a true theory of Economics without its aid.
William Stanley Jevons
If a commodity were in no way useful, – in other words, if it could in no way contribute to our gratification, – it would be destitute of exchangeable value, however scarce it might be, or whatever quantity of labour might be necessary to procure it.
David Ricardo
Gold cometh gladly and in increasing quantity to any man who will put by not less than one-tenth of his earnings to create an estate for his future and that of his family.
George S. Clason
I’m a realist and I always have been. Quality training is what I do now; before it was a combination of both quality and quantity. Now I’m not trying to be a world-class athlete, I don’t need to train at that level. It’s about being fit, fit for life.
Jackie Joyner-Kersee
I believe in binging once a week. This takes care of my cravings. I don’t eat huge quantities when I binge, but I eat different varieties of food.
Shilpa Shetty
I would like the work to be non-work. This means that it would find its way beyond my preconceptions…It is the unknown quantity from which and where I want to go. As a thing, an object, it accedes to its non-logical self. It is something, it is nothing.
Eva Hesse
Fate is a quantity very much like TV: an unstoppable narrative, written, produced and directed by somebody else.
Zadie Smith
What central banks can control is a base and one way they can control the base is via manipulating a particular interest rate, such as a Federal Funds rate, the overnight rate at which banks lend to one another. But they use that control to control what happens to the quantity of money. There is no disagreement.
Milton Friedman
CCTV is seen either as a symbol of Orwellian dystopia or a technology that will lead to crime-free streets and civil behaviour. While arguments continue, there is very little solid data in the public domain about the costs, quantity and effectiveness of surveillance.
Heather Brooke
I adore the way he looks at me sometimes, as if love is a quantity he cannot measure scientifically, because it multiplies too quickly.
Jodi Picoult
Life is more important than art – quantity is only important in that the amount of activity is greater not the number of works.
Patrick Swift
Who doesn’t know about Bollywood? After all, we churn out movies in such great quantities every year! People across the globe know Shekhar Kapur.
Arjun Rampal
A manure containing several ingredients acts in this wise: The effect of all of them in the soil accommodates itself to that one among them which, in comparison to the wants of the plant, is present in the smallest quantity.
Justus von Liebig
When something’s made in the smallest volume – as a one-off couture piece – or in large quantities, deep care is critical to determine authentic, successful design and, ultimately, manufacture.
Jonathan Ive
It is reasonable that forces directed toward bodies depend on the nature and the quantity of matter of such bodies, as happens in the case of magnetic bodies.
Isaac Newton
I’ve been really fortunate in that I guess I was hired to do A Cook’s Tour, I was already a known quantity, meaning I had written a really obnoxious book and nobody expected me to be anyone that I wasn’t already.
Anthony Bourdain
Plants, animals, and stars are all kept in place, bridled along appointed ways, with one another, and through the midst of one another — killing and being killed, eating and being eaten, in harmonious proportions and quantities.
John Muir
To shatter even the largest stones on earth, it takes only a small quantity of explosive powder.

Gretchen Rubin
in general, I feel most comfortable between known quantities.
Pam Houston
I’ve worked every job under the sun, from waitressing in my teens, to clocking hours on a construction site in London (I have degrees in quantity surveying and construction). I modelled on the side and starred on reality TV in Ireland.
Vogue Williams
If you free yourself from the conventional reaction to a quantity like a million years, you free yourself a bit from the boundaries of human time. And then in a way you do not live at all, but in another way you live forever.
John McPhee
If with open mind one reads and observes industriously and long; if in so doing one covers a wide field and so covering reflects in terms of realism, he is likely, soon or late, to be brought to a sudden consciousness that Man is an unknown quantity and his existence unsuspected.
Louis Sullivan

Jane Welsh Carlyle

Everything depends on the club more than the player: the quantities, the paperwork.
Juan Mata
It is all about the quality of the communication, not the quantity.
Buck Brannaman
South Korea has very few natural resources. The country isn’t stocked with oil, much natural gas, or even many minerals. What it does have is an enormous quantity of sheet masks, BB creams, essences, and face masks packaged to look like tomatoes.
Kayleen Schaefer
Arms cannot be regarded as merchandise in our world. They should be delivered to the peoples asking for them for use against the common enemy without any charge at all, and in quantities determined by the need and their availability.
Che Guevara
The passion between the sexes has appeared in every age to be so nearly the same, that it may always be considered, in algebraic language as a given quantity.
Thomas Malthus
Sometimes … the short short appears to rest on nothing more than a fragile anecdote which the writer has managed to drape with a quantity of suggestion. A single incident, a mere anecdote – these form the spine of the short short.
Irving Howe
Gold and silver, like other commodities, have an intrinsic value, which is not arbitrary, but is dependent on their scarcity, the quantity of labour bestowed in procuring them, and the value of the capital employed in the mines which produce them.
David Ricardo
I am so happy and grateful now – that money comes to me in increasing quantities through multiple sources on a continuous basis.
Bob Proctor
We have a definite but unknown quantity of experience at our disposal. As soon as the hourglass is turned, the sand will begin to run out and once it starts, it cannot stop until it’s all gone.
Pablo Picasso
Electric power is everywhere present in unlimited quantities and can drive the world’s machinery without the need of coal, oil, gas, or any other of the common fuels.
Nikola Tesla
The quantity of meaning compressed into small space by algebraic signs, is another circumstance that facilitates the reasonings we are accustomed to carry on by their aid.
Charles Babbage
Evolution has made us omnivores, and substantial quantities of meat can be produced by feeding plant matter whose production does not directly compete with growing food crops: crop residues, food processing waste, low-quality grain, and controlled grazing by ruminants.
Vaclav Smil
Things base and vile, holding no quantity, Love can transpose to form and dignity. Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind. Nor hath Love’s mind of any judgment taste; Wings and no eyes figure unheedy haste.
William Shakespeare
Life isn’t about quantity, it’s about quality.
Malorie Blackman
Excessive speed and quantity are, like chattiness and digression, besetting sins of cyber-assisted authorship.

Science is concerned about quantity; religion is concerned about quality. Religion is concerned with the art of how to live life and how to die life.
Rajneesh
Lermontov died at age twenty-eight and wrote more than have you and I put together. Talent is recognizable not only by quality, but also by the quantity it yields.
Anton Chekhov
It is not enough for [the investor] to know all the factors that can possibly contribute to the determination of a future event. In order to anticipate correctly they must also anticipate correctly the quantity as it were of each factor’s contribution and the instant at which its contribution will become effective.
Ludwig von Mises
Abundance is a state, not a quantity. Idea of shortage is man-made.

Krystle D’Souza
We turn to quantities when we can’t compare the qualities of things.
Marvin Minsky
We are privileged that the dollar is the “currency of last resort” and the most important currency in the world. Global commodities are priced in dollars.

Kabir Sehgal
Vegetarians are doomed in the Chilean street-food scene, though if they are willing to ingest small quantities of lard, they can enjoy the ever-popular squash, salt and lard biscuits known as sopaipillas.
Jonathan Franklin
Films and television and even comic books are churning out vast quantities of fictional narratives, and the public continues to swallow them up with great passion. That is because human beings need stories.
Paul Auster
Yeah.” Rhage sighed. “All I want is one good female. But I guess I’ll settle for quantity until I find her. Life just sucks, doesn’t it?
J.R. Ward
… we photographers are nothing but a pack of crooks, thieves and voyeurs. We are to be found everywhere we are not wanted; we betray secrets that were never entrusted to us; we spy shamelessly on things that are not our business; And end up the hoarders of a vast quantity of stolen goods.
Brassai

Plato
Quality is like quantity, but there’s a lot less of it.
Suzan-Lori Parks
I think it’s fundamentally a good sign that more and more professional traders and market makers are providing liquidity to the whole ecosystem. It allows people to move much larger quantities of digital currency more quickly than they would if that were not the case.
Fred Ehrsam
Sometimes he would advise me to read poetry, and would send me in his letters quantities of verses and whole poems, which he wrote from memory. ‘Read poetry,’ he wrote: ‘poetry makes men better.’ How often, in my later life, I realized the truth of this remark of his! Read poetry: it makes men better.
Peter Kropotkin
The importance of an artist is to be measured by the quantity of new signs which he has introduced to the language of art.
Henri Matisse

Yo-Yo Ma
Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.
Steve Jobs
There are a lot more roles for men than there are for women. So men get their fee up by sheer quantity of material.

Gerald of Wales
Things base and vile, holding no quantity, love can transpose to form and dignity
William Shakespeare
Black folks are judged by quantity, not quality. It’s a decimal point or figure. How different is that from slavery? There’s no moral code, it’s just about successful business for America.
Chuck D
Rate the intensive above the extensive. The perfect does not lie in quantity, but in quality.
Baltasar Gracian
The numbers may be said to rule the whole world of quantity, and the four rules of arithmetic may be regarded as the complete equipment of the mathematician.
James C. Maxwell
Romance cannot be put into quantity production-the moment love becomes casual, it becomes commonplace.
Frederick Lewis Allen
I work with few colors, what creates the illusion of quantity is that they fell in the right place.
Pablo Picasso
Symmetries are the playing field on which the physical world works and which determine the rules of the game. The symmetries of nature determine for us things that remain constant, that can’t be changed. Those are the guideposts in physics, the quantities like energy and momentum.
Lawrence M. Krauss
[Mathematics is] purely intellectual, a pure theory of forms, which has for its objects not the combination of quantities or their images, the numbers, but things of thought to which there could correspond effective objects or relations, even though such a correspondence is not necessary.
Hermann Hankel
As to virtue . . . it is an act of the will, a habit which increases the quantity, intensity and quality of life. It builds up, strengthens and vivifies personality.

Angela Duckworth
[Quantity is the fundamental feature of things,] the ‘primarium accidens substantiae,’ …prior to the other categories.
Johannes Kepler
You can’t ask your pharmacist to stock larger quantities of potassium nitrate because you want to make a bigger rocket.
Kary Mullis
Some struggle with medical issues – like insomnia – that make sleep hard. But for many of us, the quantity and quality of sleep come down to a matter of choice. Still, only a few enterprising economists have looked closely at this, and generally, those have assumed that we choose our hours of sleep optimally.
Sendhil Mullainathan
The quantity of force which can be brought into action in the whole of Nature is unchangeable, and can neither be increased nor diminished.

Nicholas of Cusa
I used to want to pack as much as I could into my life, but now I realize it’s more about quality of life than quantity.
Sharon Stone
Within 25 years, virtual reality meetings will be essentially transparent to being there in person. Once we can do this, the idea of climbing into an aircraft, and burning up huge quantities of fossil fuels to propel our bodies and briefcases full of papers, will seem absolutely backward.
Burt Rutan
Empirical research has shown that quality tends to be the consequence of quantity when it comes to creativity… Those who produce more masterworks also produce more rubbish.

Mark Twain
There are quantities of human beings, but there are many more faces, for each person has several.

Frank Gehry
The law in question asserts, that the quantity of force which can be brought into action in the whole of Nature is unchangeable, and can neither be increased nor diminished.
Hermann von Helmholtz
I like big drinks that aren’t afraid of the alcohol in them. Not big in size, but in flavor, and the way I can allow myself to enjoy them is by making them in very small quantities. I make tiny glasses of very big drinks.
Rachel Maddow
I have a very, very healthy relationship with food in that I eat whatever I want, whenever I want. I never restrict quantities or types of food.
Portia de Rossi
It is not of the essence of mathematics to be conversant with the ideas of number and quantity.

James Clerk Maxwell
Quantity and persistence will get you the outcomes you need.
James Altucher
You will be remembered, in the long haul, for the quality of your work, not the quantity of your work. No one evaluates Picasso based on the number of paintings he churned out.

Amy Morin
I don’t think quantity time is as special as quality time with your family.

Robert Fitzgerald
Be aware that the reward for labour, and quantity of labour, are quite disparate things.

Sidney Jourard
The great society is a place where men are more concerned with the quality of their goods than with the quantity of their goods.

Aristotle
A decrease in the quantity of legislation generally means an increase in the quality of life.
George Will
Every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us. And there are thousands of witness reports and a quantity of documents to prove this.
Gordon Cooper
In terms of quantity, we’ve probably already reached the limit of what’s feasible. I think a change of direction may be what’s needed.
Masahiro Sakurai
To say that most of us today are purely expansive is only another way of saying that most of us continue to be more concerned with the quantity than with the quality of our democracy.
Irving Babbitt
The people of Tlön are taught that the act of counting modifies the amount counted, turning indefinites into definites. The fact that several persons counting the same quantity come to the same result is for the psychologists of Tlön an example of the association of ideas or of memorization.
Jorge Luis Borges
The process of radiation may be, and is, continuous – at any rate within limits extending to far smaller quantities than the quantum.
Charles Glover Barkla
I met a lot of the senior Taliban, and I asked them precisely [about Mullah Omar]. The most common answer was he is humble. And that was very true. We never had reports of Mullah Omar living luxuriously or making money in large quantities or anything like that.
Ahmed Rashid
Today we read books ‘extensively,’ often without sustained focus, and with rare exceptions we read each book only once. We value quantity of reading over quality of reading. We have no choice, if we want to keep up with the broader culture.
Joshua Foer
Art doesn’t come in measured quantities: it’s got to be too much or it’s not enough.
Pauline Kael
Thus number may be said to rule the whole world of quantity, and the four rules of arithmetic may be regarded as the complete equipment of the mathematician.
James Clerk Maxwell
Every man depends on the quantity of sense, wit, or good manners he brings into society for the reception he meets with in it.

Hesiod
Quality rather than quantity distinguishes the master.
Sax Rohmer
James was truly an unknown quantity. He was really, physically drained in the spring and he got dinged in the fall. We brought him along slowly, but he has a great future. He’s a natural receiver.
Terry Hoeppner
You don’t have to do a lot of quantity. It’s the quality that counts.
Bruno Zheng Wu
Hard information on the quantity of bogus art sold is difficult to come by, in part because fraud, when discovered by dealers and auction houses, is usually kept secret to boost public confidence in the art market.
Peter Landesman
The first requisite of a sound monetary system is that it put the least possible power over the quantity or quality of money in the hands of the politicians.
Henry Hazlitt
All the mathematical sciences are founded on relations between physical laws and laws of numbers, so that the aim of exact science is to reduce the problems of nature to the determination of quantities by operations with numbers.

Howard Carter
Gold, on the contrary, though of little use compared with air or water, will exchange for a great quantity of other goods.
David Ricardo
We are all in favor of immigration that determines who gets in, the quantity of people who get in, whether they assimilate or not. Nobody’s opposed to that. But immigration has been defined now as people flooding the country who are noncitizens. And that’s called “immigration,” according to the culture of the left.
Rush Limbaugh
One thing that I’ve learned over the years with eggs is that you don’t want to cook them too long. You want to make sure they’re still soft, because in a big quantity, they’re easier to eat if they’re a little bit softer.
Brian Shaw
…it is prodigious the quantity of good that may be done by one man if he will make a business of it.
Benjamin Franklin
A quality of justice A quantity of light A particle of mercy Makes the color of right
Neil Peart
You hear about quality time a lot but I really think that quantity time with a person is really what strengthens a relationship. That’s when you really get to know somebody. You get to know their strengths and their weaknesses and that brings you closer. That’s what ‘Time Is Love’ is all about.
Josh Turner
If we truly value humanity, life, and all that it represents in its highest form, then we need to do all that we can to promote quality of life over the quantity of life.

Wallace D. Wattles
The lure of quantity is the most dangerous of all.
Simone Weil
Brazil, like Mexico, has some of the best fighters. There’s quantity and quality.
Fabricio Werdum
I do all of the grocery shopping in my little family. I buy cheese, of many different kinds, sliced packaged meats and poultry, bagels, immense quantities of eggs, pre-made fried chicken. Milk. Bacon. It is insane how much dairy, deli and bakery stuff I buy.
Ben Stein
Your busy schedule has plenty of quantity. Think of how you could give it some true quality and meaning. Consider the people, the beliefs, the goals, the things which are really imp9ortant to you. Make time for them, not someday, but right now. Don’t just fill your schedule. Fill your life.
Ralph Marston
I will always choose quality over quantity.
Amyra Dastur
The person who is capable of producing a large number of ideas per unit of time, other things being equal, has a greater chance of having significant ideas.
J. P. Guilford
That’s a problem. I mean, like any sort of growing startup organization, we are sort of overwhelmed by our growth. And that means we’re getting enormous quantity of whistleblower disclosures of a very high caliber, but don’t have enough people to actually process and vet this information.
Julian Assange
Dating is hard. It’s difficult and not quantity, but quality. Finding a good person.
Chris Harrison
Good developers like seeing their products sell in large quantities. They enjoy the competition of doing a better job than the other company, especially if the other company has more people on the project and they’re entrenched and people are saying that we don’t have a chance of getting in there and… and doing well.
Bill Gates
I was less successful in my attempts to effect preventive vaccination against typhus by using the virus and in trying to produce large quantities of serum using large animals.
Charles Jules Henry Nicole
There is no doubt that we cannot do without variable quantities in the sense of the potential infinite. But from this very fact the necessity of the actual infinite can be demonstrated.
Georg Cantor
The use of force is easy to rationalize in terms of basic economics. ‘We should make them PAY for what they’ve done!’ It’s just the law of demand: raise the price of crossing us, and fewer people will cross us. Make the price another Hiroshima, and perhaps the quantity demanded will fall to zero.
Bryan Caplan
The idea of ‘Spoonful’ was that it doesn’t take a large quantity of anything to be good. If you have a little money when you need it, you’re right there in the right spot, that’ll buy you a whole lot.
Howlin’ Wolf
Basketball in Latin America is growing a lot and it’s being seen with the quantity of players in the NBA.
Al Horford

Jules Henry
I am certain that there are two things in life which are dependable: the delights of the flesh and the delights of literature. I have had the good fortune to enjoy them both equally.
Peter Greenaway
Information and images bump against each other every day in massive quantities, and the resonance of this interfacing is like the babble of a village or tavern gossip session.
Marshall McLuhan
In restaurants, when people order food – and they have menus – I hate that. Just give me something to eat. Quantity matters, not quality.
Park Yeon-mi
Loneliness sometimes gives me a quantity of creativeness – you’re drinking another glass of wine and you’re feeling even worse. Art doesn’t work without pain; art also exists for compensating pain.
Till Lindemann
I am not one of the great composers. All the great have produced enormously. There is everything in their work – the best and the worst, but there is always quantity. But I have written relatively little.
Maurice Ravel
Corollary 1: The existence of immense quantities of trash in science fiction is admitted and it is regrettable; but it is no more unnatural than the existence of trash anywhere.
Theodore Sturgeon
When women and men can shed an equal quantity of tears in public, that’s when we’ll have equal power.
Madeleine M. Kunin
When I was younger it was a lot of quantity over quality. Just writing, writing, writing. Hundreds of songs. Now it’s fewer songs. If I write 10 songs I believe 80 percent of them are good and gonna be used.
Lights
Today evil spirits are seen as negativity which floats around the Earth in large quantities.
Scott Cunningham
In the practice of any craft, we are less concerned with the quantity of the product than with its quality, and less concerned with the product than with the artisan.
Lanza del Vasto
Cutting back on calories is not the answer to successful weight loss and successful health… you have to increase the quality of what you eat, not just reduce the quantity.
Joel Fuhrman
A novel is based on evidence, + or -x, the unknown quantity being the temperament of the novelist, and the unknown quantity always modifies the effect of the evidence, and sometimes transforms it entirely.
E. M. Forster
The key words of violent economics are urbanization, industrialization, centralization, efficiency, quantity, speed. . . . The problem of evolving a nonviolent way of economic life [in the West] and that of developing the underdeveloped countries may well turn out to be largely identical.
E. F. Schumacher
My iPhone background says, ‘If you build it, they’ll come.’ You know, quality over quantity. And I really live by that.

Gurmeet Choudhary

Nigel Farage
Number is different from quantity.
Gregory Bateson
To those who ask what the infinitely small quantity in mathematics is, we answer that it is actually zero. Hence there are not so many mysteries hidden in this concept as they are usually believed to be.
Leonhard Euler
Americans were happy to buy vast quantities of relatively inexpensive Chinese manufactured goods, demand for which provided jobs for the tens of millions of Chinese who moved from poor agricultural areas to new or rapidly expanding cities.
Richard N. Haass
Farming and fishing are the major causes of the collapse of both marine and terrestrial ecosystems. Meat – consumed in greater quantities by the rich than by the poor – is the strongest cause of all.
George Monbiot
Though I have no productive worth, I have a certain value as an indestructible quantity.
Alice James
Coproporphyrin in particular is widespread; traces are present in normal urine and also in yeast. In special cultures, yeast can be made to produce considerable quantities of coproporphyrin.
Hans Fischer
A collection of errors does not make a truth: quality cannot stem from quantity – a value is not a weight. The reasons of the majority cannot be taken as good reasons.
Alain de Benoist
Men are merely on a lower or higher stage of an eminence, whose summit is God’s throne infinitely above all; and there is just as much reason for the wisest as for the simplest man being discontent with his position, as respects the real quantity of knowledge he possesses.
John Ruskin
Inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon in the sense that it is and can be produced only by a more rapid increase in the quantity of money than in output.
Milton Friedman
I am convinced that the unwritten knowledge scattered among men of different callings surpasses in quantity and in importance anything we find in books, and that the greater part of our wealth has yet to be recorded.
Gottfried Leibniz
If someone is a known spectacular quantity, then they’re probably working in a job and very happy with that.
John Collison
Being a wine enthusiast means you care more about quality than quantity.
Jean-Claude Carriere
Scientists didn’t discover the noble gas helium – the second most common element in the universe – on Earth until 1895. And they thought it existed in minute quantities only, until miners found a huge underground cache in Kansas in 1903.
Sam Kean
I often speak publicly, and when I do, I also get to listen to other presenters. The most memorable are the ones that hit an emotional chord with a tight story and a punch line. No fluff. Keep it creative and concise. Greatness exists in quality, not quantity.
Lewis Howes
In a socialist society, everybody is obliged to work even though he is remunerated for his labor and not yet according to his needs, but according to the quantity and quality of the labor expended.
Joseph Stalin
I seek out parts which are strong women. It’s not the quantity of a role; it’s the quality of a role.
Priyanka Chopra
It’s not how many hours you put in with a client or on a project. It’s the quantity and quality of your energy – your focus and force – that determine whether that time is valuable.
Jim Loehr
Number is different from quantity. This difference is basic for any sort of theorizing in behavioral science, any sort of imagining of what goes on between organisms or inside organisms as part of their processes of thought.
Gregory Bateson
Most viscose rayon is made from wood pulp, but the process of making it typically uses so many chemicals in such vast quantities that some experts said it shouldn’t really count as a natural plant fiber.
Tatiana Schlossberg
We have here a proof that there is in the atom a fundamental quantity, which increases by regular steps as one passes from one element to the next. This quantity can only be the charge on the central positive nucleus, of the existence of which we already have definite proof.
Henry Moseley
It is quality rather than quantity that matters.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Don’t pressure yourself to target a market. Hit the mark instead. Pay homage to your own connection. Quantity flocks to quality and quality comes from purity. Purity wails. Integrity taps a nerve. Inspiration slips beneath the skin of yoru skin and turns disinterested strangers into warm-bodied kin.
Tama J. Kieves
In the physical world, one cannot increase the size or quantity of anything without changing its quality. Similar figures exist only in pure geometry.
Paul Valery
I had long since given up trying to extract from a woman as it were the square root of her unknown quantity, the mystery of which a mere introduction was generally enough to dispel.
Marcel Proust
The total disorder in the universe, as measured by the quantity that physicists call entropy, increases steadily over time. Also, the total order in the universe, as measured by the complexity and permanence of organized structures, also increases steadily over time.
Freeman Dyson
A small room is enough; a small quantity of food is enough; a few clothes are enough; one lover, a very ordinary man
Rajneesh
Guys, your home should never smell like artificial food: candy canes, gum drops, lemon bars. I mean, I will consume lemon bars in mass quantities, but I don’t want my house to smell like one.
Brooklyn Decker
By the help of God and with His precious assistance, I say that Algebra is a scientific art. The objects with which it deals are absolute numbers and measurable quantities which, though themselves unknown, are related to “things” which are known, whereby the determination of the unknown quantities is possible.
Omar Khayyam
It’s abominable, and it’s a disgrace to a great democracy to see what’s happened in our country. The main reason for that has been the enormous infusion of high quantities of money to campaigns – governors, Congress, president and the U.S. Senate.
Jimmy Carter
I would rather have 1 amazing best friend than 100 decent regular friends. It’s not about quantity, it’s about quality.
Connor Franta
If ever you wish to meet intellectual frauds in quantity, go to Paris.
V. S. Naipaul
Wales was in ancient times divided into three parts nearly equal, consideration having been paid, in this division, more to the value than to the just quantity or proportion of territory.
Giraldus Cambrensis
Some people are trapped by the belief that love comes in finite quantities, and that our kind of love exhausts the supply upon which they need to draw. I do not accept competitive models of love, only additive ones.
Andrew Solomon
The quality of your thinking is largely determined by the quantity of the information you have with which to work
Brian Tracy
Like I’ve always said, in football the most important thing is the quality of minutes not the quantity.
Diego Simeone
So what are the effects of increasing minimum wages? Any Econ 101 student can tell you the answer: The higher wage reduces the quantity of labor demanded, and hence leads to unemployment.
Paul Krugman
Higher education should be based on quality, not quantity; receive merit-based funding; and be free of unnecessary bureaucracy. Not the least of the benefits of educational reform is to foster the pride of achievement at national and international levels.
Ahmed Zewail
Remember, it’s the quality of your ideas not the quantity that will result in the big money.
Joel Greenblatt
Mass man is a phenomenon of electric speed, not of physical quantity.
Marshall McLuhan
In this case, the particle formed has correspondingly less energy, whereas the product nucleus passes into the ground state with emission of the quantity of energy saved as gamma radiation.
Walther Bothe
The human body contains blood, phlegm, yellow bile and black bile. These are the things that make up its constitution and cause its pain and health. Health is primarily that state in which these constituent substances are in the correct proportion to each other, both in strength and quantity, and are well mixed.
Hippocrates
People don’t become inured to what they are shown – if that’s the right way to describe what happens – because of the quantity of images dumped on them. It is passivity that dulls feeling. The states described as apathy, moral or emotional anesthesia, are full of feelings; the feelings are rage and frustration.
Susan Sontag
It is not only by the pores of the skin that this aqueous emaciation takes place. A considerable quantity of humidity is also exhaled by the lungs at each expiration.
Antoine Lavoisier
The only thing I do worry about is that the more films I do the more visible I am going to become as a personality because of press and because of the sheer quantity of films.
Vincent D’Onofrio
We live in an age where quantity is seen as preferable to quality, and many people tend to work in a horizontal line: next, next, next. But if you do that, you never investigate the vertical line – the depth of the piece.
Simon McBurney
A massive amount of quantity with a deliberate focus on improvement leads to the knowledge and experience of how to make quality.
An Na
English football is evolving. It’s no longer the game it used to be. Apart from the larger quantities of money which make it more attractive to foreign stars, the mentality is also different – everybody looks to win games no matter what, even if it means taking risks.
Gianfranco Zola
Now, in this town, you have to putter over a thing, even the slightest, a month. The powers that evolved the cabbage apple-pie in the morning, and executed it in the evening, are here unknown quantities.
Susan Hale
I worked more intensively hour after hour when I was starting out [writing]. More laboriously. I’d say quantity is important as well as quality, and if you’re not producing enough, make a schedule and stick to it.
Lydia Davis
Have you ever noticed some people are able to stay organized while getting a massive quantity of work accomplished, while others appear to be busy but never actually produce results? Time management is the key to becoming a successful entrepreneur.
Clay Clark
Silence is an endangered quantity in our time… Silence, embraced, stuns with its presence, its pregnant reality—a reality that does not negate reason and argument, but puts them in their place.
Krista Tippett
If you increase the quantity of money, you bring about the lowering of the purchasing power of the monetary unit.
Ludwig von Mises
It is impossible, in principle, to explain any pattern by invoking a single quantity.
Gregory Bateson
Nowhere are emissions monitored constantly. So the truth is that the real quantity of dioxin emissions from incineration remains unknown.
Jeremy Irons
I suppose once upon a time a Test match was something you looked forward to go and watch. It’s very hard to get the quality these days because the focus is more on quantity.
David Campese
What is envy? It is nothing but passive jealousy. Maybe jealousy is too strong a phenomenon; envy is a little passive. The difference may be of degrees, but it is not of quality, it is only of quantity. Envy can become jealousy at any moment; envy is just jealousy in progress. Mind has to drop all envies and jealousies.
Rajneesh
Any large-scale organization must lose some of the merits of its rudimentary beginnings. Quantity will have a coarsening effect on quality.
John Buchan
Writing is one of the few activities where quantity will inevitably make quality. The more you write, the better you’re going to get at it.
Harlan Coben
A Paradox, the doughnut hole. Empty space, once, but now they’ve learned to market even that. A minus quantity; nothing, rendered edible. I wondered if they might be used-metaphorically, of course-to demonstrate the existence of God. Does naming a sphere of nothingness transmute it into being?
Margaret Atwood
No physical quantity can continue to change exponentially forever. Your job is delaying forever.
Gordon Moore
A broker who discovers an undervalued stock does not advertise it until he has bought a large enough quantity without letting the price go up. When the brokers’ connection with a stock becomes public knowledge, it is usually a sure sign of manipulation and that the broker is seeking to drive up the price.
Sucheta Dalal
Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art.
Frederic Chopin
I like quality over quantity.
Jidenna
What is translated from English and into English – and in what quantities – is a question of power.
Ngugi wa Thiong’o
There is a strong tendency in explanatory prose to invoke quantities of tension, energy, and whatnot to explain the genesis of pattern. I believe that all such explanations are inappropriate or wrong.
Gregory Bateson
A Yea might turn in to a Nae and vice versa if a sufficient quantity of wordage was applied. In other talk you argument out until you get the answer you want.
Leonard Wibberley
Physical changes take place continuously, while chemical changes take place discontinuously. Physics deals chiefly with continuous varying quantities, while chemistry deals chiefly with whole numbers.
Max Planck
In all cases where work is produced by heat, a quantity of heat proportional to the work done is expended; and inversely, by the expenditure of a like quantity of work, the same amount of heat may be produced.
Rudolf Clausius
I loved Ophelia. Forty thousand brothers could not, with all their quantity of love, make up my sum.
William Shakespeare
Possessing utility, commodities derive their exchangeable value from two sources: from their scarcity, and from the quantity of labour required to obtain them.
David Ricardo
I believe we should spend less time worrying about the quantity of books children read and more time introducing them to quality books that will turn them on to the joy of reading and turn them into lifelong readers.
James Patterson
Corn is the leading food and feed crop of the United States in geographic range of production, acreage, and quantity of product. The vital importance of a large acreage of this crop, properly cared for, therefore, is obvious.
David F. Houston
The smallest quantity of alcohol scares away novel ideas.
Hermann von Helmholtz
To be successful, you have to have quantity of quality.
Mark Frauenfelder
I tend to think that good and evil exist and that the quantity in each of us is unchangeable. The moral character of people is set, fixed until death.
Michel Houellebecq
So while there is no evidence at all that Iran has any significant quantity of nuclear material or any nuclear weapons, Iran is a much more difficult nuclear issue to resolve for the United States.
Joseph Cirincione
Reality had always been something of an unknown quantity to me.
Anna Kavan
Americans have been tremendously fortunate in poetry, regarding both the quantity and quality of poetry produced. Unfortunately, it remains in schools and universities; it is not widely distributed.
Joseph Brodsky
The many are more incorruptible than the few; they are like the greater quantity of water which is less easily corrupted than a little.
Aristotle
He that gives all, though but little, gives much; because God looks not to the quantity of the gift, but to the quality of the givers.
Francis Quarles
I have to admit it that the large quantity of US money poured into Vietnam provoked ii…a lot of bad habits.
Bui Diem
I trained for less than three-quarters of an hour, maybe five days a week – I didn’t have time to do more. But it was all about quality, not quantity – so I didn’t waste time jogging, ever.
Roger Bannister
What you concentrate on largely determines the quality and quantity of the results that you get and the success that you enjoy.
Brian Tracy
I had had some successes in the ’90s, always made money, but the truth was I was like a man pushing a boulder up a hill. A huge, heavy, difficult boulder made up of some career mistakes, projects that didn’t meet expectations, and twenty years of being a known quantity.
Rob Lowe
The strength behind communication is in its quality, not in its quantity. Your talk should be that of quality, not of quantity. You should use small sentences which say a lot. Or you should say a lot in small sentences.
Harbhajan Singh Yogi
If you stop and you think about everything we hold of value on this planet, metal, minerals, energy, real estate, the things that nations fight wars over. These things are in near infinite quantities out there.
Peter Diamandis
I’m one of the most durable and fervent advocates of space exploration, but my take is that we could do it robotically at far less cost and far greater quantity and quality of results.
James Van Allen
But just as much as it is easy to find the differential [derivative] of a given quantity, so it is difficult to find the integral of a given differential. Moreover, sometimes we cannot say with certainty whether the integral of a given quantity can be found or not.
Johann Bernoulli
I believe the calculation of the quantity of probability might be improved to a very useful and pleasant speculation, and applied to a great many events which are accidental, besides those of games; only these cases would be infinitely more confused, as depending on chances which the most part of men are ignorant of.
John Arbuthnot
Imagine a person with a gift of ridicule [He might say] First that a negative quantity has no logarithm; secondly that a negative quantity has no square root; thirdly that the first non-existent is to the second as the circumference of a circle is to the diameter.
Augustus De Morgan
This is pretty much the infrastructural stuff that comes along with large quantities of energy. Whichever technology we are looking at has serious hazardous issues.
Stewart Brand
The biggest part of our business has always been moving things, not paper. With the Internet, people in Mississippi can buy things from Macedonia, without regard to time or place or quantity.
Frederick W. Smith
An American of the present day reading his Sunday newspaper in a state of lazy collapse is one of the most perfect symbols of the triumph of quantity over quality that the world has yet seen.
Irving Babbitt
Indeed, the quantity of PCBs still in use plus the quantity still languishing in waste dumps exceeds the total amount that has already escaped into the general environment. Without a program to recall and contain them, semivolatile PCBs will continue to insinuate themselves into the food chain for decades.
Sandra Steingraber
Rather, for all objects and experiences, there is a quantity that has optimum value. Above that quantity, the variable becomes toxic. To fall below that value is to be deprived.
Gregory Bateson
Bollywood is huge. Anything that’s made in large quantity will evidently overshadow others. But that won’t stop artistes from making albums. A person who has faith in his music will go ahead.
Kailash Kher
That’s a problem. I mean, like any sort of growing startup organization, we are sort of overwhelmed by our growth, and that means we’re getting enormous quantity of whistleblower disclosures of a very high caliber but don’t have enough people to actually process and vet this information.
Julian Assange
An athlete may run ten thousand miles in order to prepare for one hundred yards. Quantity gives experience.
Ray Bradbury
The sheer quantity of brain power that hurled itself voluntarily and quixotically into the search for new baseball knowledge was either exhilarating or depressing, depending on how you felt about baseball. The same intellectual resources might have cured the common cold, or put a man on Pluto.
Michael Lewis
If our grazing land was allowed to revert to natural ecosystems, and the land currently used to grow feed for livestock was used for grains, beans, fruit, nuts and vegetables for humans, this switch would allow the UK to absorb an astonishing quantity of carbon.
George Monbiot
Evidently, quality of wits is more important than quantity.
Claudius
Opium is the only drug to’ be rely’d on-all the boasted nostrums only take up time, and as the disease [is] often of short duration, or of small quantity, they have gain’d credit which they do not deserve.
Erasmus Darwin
…after a certain quantity, photos apparently taken by chance, postcards chosen according to a passing mood, begin to trace an itinerary, to map the imaginary country that stretches out before us.
Chris Marker
Today, the issue isn’t quantity of food as much as it is quality-whether kids are getting enough protein and other nutrients to fully develop.
Bill Gates
Through most of its wars, the United States successfully used the attrition approach. It is easier to be proficient at this type of warfare. You need to master only the simplest military skills and possess enormous quantities of arms and munitions.
Jim Dunnigan
A function of a variable quantity is an analytic expression composed in any way whatsoever of the variable quantity and numbers or constant quantities.
Leonhard Euler
Polarity, or action and reaction, we meet in every part of nature; in darkness and light; in heat and cold; in the ebb and flow of water; in male and female; in the equation of quantity and quality; in the fluids of the animal body; in the systole an
Ralph Waldo Emerson
But I love fish, cheese and meat, and I eat everything, but only in small quantities if it’s rich.
Eva Herzigova
People simply don’t have room, physical room, to keep, for instance, 2-inch tape in the sort of quantities that are required to hold a full archive. It’s not just a matter of having three or four boxes, it’s 40, 90 boxes of 2-inch tape, and very few people have the resources that sort of stuff properly.
Nick Mason
I have always maintained that it’s not the quantity of work, but the quality that should speak. I have maintained the same for my music albums, too. I have always released them after a gap of two to three years.
Adnan Sami
There are times when quantity is at least as important as quality in learning an art.
Lawrence Watt-Evans
When engineers and quantity surveyors discuss aesthetics and architects study what cranes do we are on the right road.
Ove Arup
Sunlight and wind are inherently unreliable and energy-dilute. As such, adding solar panels and wind turbines to the grid in large quantities increases the cost of generating electricity, locks in fossil fuels, and increases the environmental footprint of energy production.
Michael Shellenberger
Superior technical achievements – used correctly both strategically and tactically – can beat any quantity numerically many times stronger yet technically inferior.
Adolf Galland
All phenomena of which we are aware take place in our own minds, and therefore the only thing we have to look at is the mind; which is a more constant quantity over all the species of humanity than is generally supposed.
Aleister Crowley
Buy things you truly love, things that are special, but not a lot of them. It’s about value, not quantity.
Jason Wu
I believe that a limited quantity of immigrants, possibly through an Australian-style program on the basis of work qualifications, can be let in.
Matteo Salvini
I think I’ve gotten technically better over the years but you’d have to be a fool not to. I’ve made so many movies that by sheer quantity you get better at the technique.
Woody Allen
I would rather wait and keep working on myself harder and wait for the right opportunity. It is not quantity but quality I should be remembered for.
Yami Gautam
As economists have often pointed out, we pay doctors for quantity, not quality. As they point out less often, we also pay them as individuals, rather than as members of a team working together for their patients. Both practices have made for serious problems.
Atul Gawande
. . . hummings and clickings could be heard-the sounds attendant to the flow of electrons, now augmenting one maze of electromagnetic crises to a condition that was translatable from electrical qualities and quantities to a high grade of truth.
Kurt Vonnegut
For most modern marketers, quantity isn’t the point. What matters is to matter. Lives changed. Work that made an actual difference. Connection.
Seth Godin
I was never interested in the quantity of films or the glamorous side of cinema.
Supriya Pathak
For, as the substance of the brain, like that of the other solids of our body, is nearly incompressible, the quantity of blood within the head must be the same, or very nearly the same, at all times, whether in health or disease, in life or after death.
Alexander Monro
The potential infinite means nothing other than an undetermined, variable quantity, always remaining finite, which has to assume values that either become smaller than any finite limit no matter how small, or greater than any finite limit no matter how great.
Georg Cantor
Caught one a live by poreing a great quantity of Water in his hole.
Meriwether Lewis
These code authorities could regulate production, quantities, qualities, prices, distribution methods, etc., under the supervision of the NRA. This was fascism.
John T. Flynn
It is not by the absolute quantity of produce obtained by either class, that we can correctly judge of the rate of profit, rent, and wages, but by the quantity of labour required to obtain that produce.
David Ricardo
The belief is growing on me that the disease is communicated by the bite of the mosquito… She always injects a small quantity of fluid with her bite – what if the parasites get into the system in this manner.
Ronald Ross
In certain countries, people seem to be think that three asses together make one intelligent person. However, that is completely wrong. Several asses in concreto make the ass in abstracto and that is a most terrifying animal.
Franz Grillparzer
Cows, after leaving the low lands near the coast, are found to be plentiful everywhere, and to produce milk in small quantities, from which butter is made.
John Hanning Speke
A span of life is nothing. But the man who lives that span, he is something. He can fill that tiny span with meaning, so its quality is immeasurable though its quantity may be insignificant.
Chaim Potok
Despite the enormous quantity of books, how few people read! And if one reads profitably, one would realize how much stupid stuff the vulgar herd is content to swallow every day.
Voltaire
You don’t look at it as the size of the role. Quantity is not the point. You can be as thorough in 30 seconds as you can in three hours.
William Hurt
The state sometimes makes mistakes. When one of these mistakes occurs, one notes a decline in collective enthusiasm due to the effect of a quantitative diminution in each of the elements that make up the mass. Work is paralyzed until it is reduced to an insignificant level. It is time to make a correction.
Che Guevara
I’ve discovered that sheer quantity doesn’t necessarily make for a heavier sound; if anything, overdubs make guitars sound mushier.
James Hetfield
The first truth for special operations is that quality is more important than quantity.
Hugh Shelton
If you import a commercial quantity of illegal drugs. It is because you have made the personal decision that you are prepared to get rich by destroying our children. I have made the decision that I love our children enough that we will kill you if you do this.
Newt Gingrich
You don’t consume craft beers in great quantities just to get loaded; you consume craft beers because you like the taste of the beer. People are asking for beer based on what they’re eating, which is quite a change from the way it was.
Bruce McDonald
We need to create the beauty and the quality first. The quantity will follow.
Alan Chadwick
I hope that I never have to work in a place that sells large quantities of jeans ever again. Jeans are rough! It used to kill my hands. I know that sounds prissy – I’m not prissy at all. But it did; it killed my hands. It was awful.
Jesmyn Ward
