I didn’t like it [computer] when I first began using it. Where it’s helped me a lot is in nonfiction which is a kind of different process.

Joan Didion
Certainly the support for research in HIV/AIDS was good in the Clinton administration, good in the Bush administrations. It just was.

Cosima Spender
I did some research and tried to pull out some old, classic Van Halen that they had not played in 10 or 15 years. I think that was Sammy’s mistake. I he didn’t want to do the Dave stuff.

John Cornwell
Debunking bad science should be constant obligation of the science community, even if it takes time away from serious research or seems to be a losing battle. One takes comfort from the fact there is no Gresham’s laws in science. In the long run, good science drives out bad.
Martin Gardner
Teaching is learning. When you’re teaching full-time you have to do research, stay current.
Jimmy Heath
The title which I most covet is that of teacher. The writing of a research paper and the teaching of freshman calculus, and everything in between, falls under this rubric. Happy is the person who comes to understand something and then gets to explain it.

Alan Kay
The process that we go through in recording with Tool is very organic, but at the same time it is very thought out. There is a very left-brain process of dissecting what we’re doing and drawing from source material; it’s very research oriented and esoteric.
Maynard James Keenan

Renny Harlin
I don’t use the computer. I do sketches, very quickly, often more than 100 on the same formal research.
Zaha Hadid

Grant Tinker
Why do they call it research if I’ve only done it this one time?
Brandon Sanderson
I do a lot of research for my books. I can’t possibly know all the things I write about and I love learning new things. I spend hours and hours doing research in books, libraries and online. [Once] I traveled to the reservation to get the settings and the flavor of the place down right.
Linda Conrad
Questions are often more effective than statements in moving others. Or to put it more appropriately, since the research shows that when the facts are on your side, questions are more persuasive than statements, don’t you think you should be pitching more with questions?
Daniel H. Pink
I’ve often been accused of making anthropology into literature, but anthropology is also field research. Writing is central to it.

Kierston Wareing
I was looking to do something non-fiction because I had done a strip, ‘My Mom Was a Schizophrenic.’ I really enjoyed the process of doing that strip, despite its subject matter. To do it I’d had to do a lot of research and reading and I figured I’d like to do that again.
Chester Brown
I automate some tasks and delegate many others. Doing research, job organization, data processing, field surveys, and plan preparation can be tedious, detailed work.
Mark Mason
Many churches of all persuasions are hiring research agencies to poll neighborhoods, asking what kind of church they prefer. Then the local churches design themselves to fit the desires of the people. True faith in God that demands selflessness is being replaced by trendy religion that serves the selfish.
Billy Graham
Many futurists use a checklist approach to make sure they’re covering a sufficiently wide set of topics in terms of both research and brainstorming during a foresight exercise.
Jamais Cascio

John Harsanyi
I’m really focused on my research almost 100 percent. That, and my family and kids.
Joseph DeRisi
Style has become a crucial differentiating factor for most actors in the industry. I generally choose my look based on the character I essay. I research a lot on the Internet and pick something that would suit my face.
Akkineni Nagarjuna
Appeal to all scholars of stupidity in the world. Come to Italy, this country has the highest rate of morons of the universe, especially among political, bureaucratic, judicial, religious, intellectual, artistic, and mass media members, so it is the best place to develop your own field research.
William C. Brown
Nic is definitely a car guy because Nic and [William] Fichtner and Billy, these guys go on and on about the cars. So we had no choice but to do our research and get everything right because they were going to nail us if we didn’t.
Todd Farmer

Uwem Akpan
I use the city because it saves time, I don’t have to do a lot of research on the setting.
Walter Wager

Taxes are how we pool our money for public health and safety, infrastructure, research, and services-from the development of vaccines and the Internet to public schools and universities, transportation, courts, police, parks, and safe drinking water.
Holly Sklar
I had a certificate that said, ‘Doctor of Mixology, Harvard University,’ that I actually got from Harvard University.

Octavia E. Butler
We might think that we’re really intellectual and we’re going to check out the library to research the meaning every time somebody puts out a new record. It’s still primitive stuff. It’s the same now as it was at the beginning. It’s no different now. Rock ‘n’ roll is spirit music-it’s just coming through people.
Van Morrison
There are many important books on oral history. My book was the launch title in the Understanding Qualitative Research series with Oxford University Press. I think what makes my book and all of the series books unique is the emphasis on writing instruction for researchers who want to use the method being described.
Patricia Leavy
While I was thinking about that, the military, I read a book called On Killing, about the obstacles people have to pulling the trigger in combat. So sometimes you just absorb all this stuff without realizing you were doing research.

Roger Wicker
I like the way Microsoft participates in other-than-mainstream activities, such as academic research, charities, scholarships and connecting the disconnected by providing technology support to underserved people.
Arfa Karim
Recent research has indicated that the average individual listens for only seventeen seconds before interrupting and interjecting his own ideas.
Gary Chapman
There’s a lot of research on the shift in who deals with money when families get in trouble. In good times, husbands handle the family’s finances about 80 percent of the time. But when times turn sour and families start dealing with creditors and managing unpayable bills, women take more active roles.
Elizabeth Warren
Westerners often laud their children as ‘talented’ or ‘gifted’, while Asian parents highlight the importance of hard work. And in fact, research performed by Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck has found that the way parents offer approval affects the way children perform, even the way they feel about themselves.
Amy Chua
I’m an observer. I read about life. I research life. I find a corner in a room and melt into it. I can become invisible. It’s an art, and I am a wonderful practitioner.
Christine Feehan
Understanding the difference between healthy striving and perfectionism is critical to laying down the shield and picking up your life. Research shows that perfectionism hampers success. In fact, it’s often the path to depression, anxiety, addiction, and life paralysis.
BrenГ© Brown
Susan Campbell has brought Isabella’s fascinating forgotten story back to life with the deep research of a born historian and the vibrant readable prose style of a veteran journalist.

Richelle Mead
Research in this country is going down.
Amar Bose
All tedious research is worth one inspired moment.

Jim Valvano
Hours of research can cut months of field work.
E. Lee Spence
Taken over the centuries, scientific ideas have exerted a force on our civilization fully as great as the more tangible practical applications of scientific research.
I. Bernard Cohen
While Occam’s razor is a useful tool in the physical sciences, it can be a very dangerous implement in biology. It is thus very rash to use simplicity and elegance as a guide in biological research.
Francis Crick
I had a good time working with Russell Crowe, Ron Howard and Ed Harris. It was a great cast and Russell worked really hard, doing tons of research and questioning everything.
Jennifer Connelly
It is critically important that Iran should not develop nuclear weapons. And that the necessary interventions need to be made by the International Atomic Energy Agency to ensure that, indeed, that does not happen, in the context of any nuclear generation of power.
Thabo Mbeki
I have little patience with scientists who take a board of wood, look for its thinnest part, and drill a great number of holes where drilling is easy.
Albert Einstein
The question that motivates my research is, if we can put a man on the Moon with 100,000 [people], what can we do with 100 million?
Luis von Ahn
Scientific research and other studies have demonstrated that arts education can enhance American students’ math and language skills and improve test scores which in turn increase chances of higher education and good jobs in the future.
Thad Cochran
It took some time to gather the research and develop it into the storyline, and to finally finish an origin myth poem that I had been working on for twenty years.
Jean M. Auel
My fun as an actor and my task as an actor is to transform myself to become other people. I enjoy becoming characters but I don’t enjoy becoming caricatures. The research I do is only necessary in so far as we move into other dimensions.
David Suchet
I think even if I did the research mentioned above, it would be a total waste of money because if those people don’t believe in the testimonials, they won’t believe in the research at all. They would say that I made it all up. So why waste money?
Alex Chiu
An investigator starts research in a new field with faith, a foggy idea, and a few wild experiments. Eventually the interplay of negative and positive results guides the work. By the time the research is completed, he or she knows how it should have been started and conducted.
Donald Cram
There’s a late-night scene in every town, and everyone has something going on, … I’ve heard good stories about (Syracuse); this is a very good party town, a good drinking place. I definitely would like to come back and check it out further. Do some more research, as I call it.
Dave Attell
There are 20,000 million books I could have to read, but I can pick the ones and know that I’m learning something that I didn’t know before. That’s the glory of writing. It’s not even so much the writing, it’s what you learn – especially history – because so much of it is research.
Doris Kearns Goodwin
The sheep-people don’t think for themselves anymore. You can say anything and it’s the gospel truth and they don’t have to go research it or anything, and they believe everything the news tells them. People don’t go and do their own investigations if it’s relationships or politics or anything.
Big Boi
I’ve had investigations of my lab because people didn’t like what I had to say. And when you have investigations and you’re doing research, you’re shut down for a while. You have to start all over again. So that’s one area where I paid a high price.
Carl Hart
Heatstroke is an important and useful addition to the library on climate change, bringing insights from deep-time ecological research to help illuminate the dire forecasts of which we’re already so aware.

Every time I see some piece of medical research saying that caffeine is good for you, I high-five myself. Because I’m going to live forever.
Linus Torvalds
For scientists, growing cells took so much work that they couldn’t get much research done. So the selling of cells was really just for the sake of science, and there weren’t a lot of profits.
Rebecca Skloot
Even painless research is fascism, supremacism…
Ingrid Newkirk
Embryonic stem cell research wears no political stripes – it is embraced by conservatives, liberals, Democrats, Republicans, and Independents.
Diana DeGette
But it’s the particularity of a place, the physical experience of being in a place, that makes it onto the page. That’s why I don’t just do library research. I very rarely write about somewhere I haven’t been.
Hari Kunzru
I’ve been online doing all kinds of research and that seems to be the constant criticism, that Aibileen’s accent was just too thick. And for me, I don’t want anything to distract from the character.
Viola Davis
It is an old and ironic habit of human beings to run faster when we have lost our way; and we grasp more fiercely at research, statistics, and technical aids in sex when we have lost the values and meaning of love.
Rollo May
I have a confidence because my research shows that I should just really trust my instincts.
Katy Perry
In the real world of research, conventional tests of [statistical] significance seem almost worthless.
Fischer Black
Nevada has a world-class economy. It will only build a world-class culture with world-class research universities coupled with the Desert Research Institute.
James E. Rogers
The research indicates that when we women invest, we women do tend to be more patient, take a longer-term perspective and as a result of it, tend to be better investors than men. But the messages we get are that investing is sort of ‘the guys’ world.’
Sallie Krawcheck
The collection is a labor of love and devotion, and whenever I found free time from my journalism work, I’d work on one story or another, or at least sketch out my characters, and research various issues related to my characters’ dilemmas.
Andrew Lam
I think there’s a lack of understanding which is partly our fault as scientists and physicians in not communicating well enough with the public. But there’s a lack of understanding of how important biomedical research is.
Laurie Glimcher
The Astonishment Tapes will now take its place within the growing field of international research about postwar American poetry’s important contribution to world literature. Miriam Nichols has once again done exceptional scholarship.
Peter Gizzi
I think no matter where we go in space to me the important thing is not only getting there and getting back, but it’s also doing research, because that opens up as a possibility with that new distance of travel in space.
John Glenn
I’ve been told by people who write historical novels that you just sort of write the emotional truth first, the story at the core, and then you go back and research it at the end.
Jami Attenberg
Looking at obesity without preconceived ideas, one would assume that the main trend of research should be directed toward an examination of abnormalities of the fat metabolism, since by definition excessive accumulation of fat is the underlying abnormality.
Hilde Bruch
Qatar is giving 2.8% of our GDP to research. This is something again that is a breakthrough, as nobody was even thinking of research as a tool or component for advancement in this part of the world.
Moza bint Nasser
I have spent most of my life working with mental illness. I have been president of the world’s largest association of mental-illness workers, and I am all for more funding for mental-health care and research – but not in the vain hope that it will curb violence.
Martin Seligman
I’d always envied actors who got to play real people or got to do research. I’ve always just had these scripts where, I mean not in a bad way, but it was right on the page.
Luke Wilson
I did go through graduate school and I like to do research, to create something that has a certain objective solidity. The same thing influences my fiction to some degree, because, you know, my fiction is often based on history that I’ve read.
Marilynne Robinson
When you’re working well, you don’t do research. Whatever you need comes to you.
E. L. Doctorow
I found what I was looking for at Langley. This was what a research mathematician did. I went to work every day for 33 years happy. Never did I get up and say I don’t want to go to work.
Katherine Johnson
I had already done a lot of research for Rough Riders, keeping notebooks and old photographs. Some of the books were antiques for that time period, with the covers falling off.
Tom Berenger
The point of literary criticism in anthropology is not to replace research, but to find out how it is that we are persuasive.
Clifford Geertz
First, this isn’t about telecommuting, because we still have offices that people will come to regularly when they need to brainstorm together, meet with clients, or do research in the library.
Jay Chiat
You know, the great thing about acting or, indeed, filmmaking in general, is that we’re all given a reason to do research. You kind of have to, really, if you want to know what you’re doing, but it opens up this whole new understanding.
Danny Huston
No CEO ever says, ‘Damnit, we need to increase research!’ I want to encourage them to do that.
Nathan Myhrvold
It’s frustrating sometimes to see the mismatch in resources between the pointless and the urgent, isn’t it. Like the gap between the vast resources poured into military technological research to make war more sophisticated, and the trickle that goes into developing techniques that might prevent war instead.
Anita Roddick
You can do the best research and be making the strongest intellectual argument, but if readers don’t get past the third paragraph you’ve wasted your energy and valuable ink.
Carl Hiaasen
Young writers should definitely research the current sounds and styles.
Lamont Dozier
The most important invention that will come out of the corporate research lab in the future will be the corporation itself.
John Seely Brown
I love science. I hate supposition, superstition, exaggeration and falsified data. Show me the research, show me the results, show me the conclusions – and then show me some qualified peer reviews of all that.
Claire Scovell LaZebnik
I sometimes think about the tower at Pisa as the first particle accelerator, a (nearly) vertical linear accelerator that Galileo used in his studies.
Leon M. Lederman
With all the clever brains in America it would be great to see more investment and focus on this essential research!
Louise Burfitt-Dons
I do a lot of research and yes, do know quite a few police officers, friends of mine and my husbands. However, most of my books are researched based on Canadian laws or the laws of each country (ie: Mexico and USA) and I do my best to make them accurate.
Franny Armstrong
As the new endogenous growth theory suggests, TFP growth is closely related to accumulation of the intangible capitals, such as human capital and research and development.
Toshihiko Fukui
In the beginning the gods did not at all reveal all things clearly to mortals, but by searching men in the course of time find them out better.
But I’m a historian. I wasn’t interested in just being a producer, I was interested in doing research and presenting that research to a general public
Bernice Johnson Reagon
Research is four things: brains with which to think, eyes with which to see, machines with which to measure and, fourth, money.
Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
To all conservative women out there: If you are so sure the embryo needed for stem cell research are precious human life that can’t be destroyed, then implant one in your uterus and bring it to term. That’s right, put your cervix where your mouth is.
Bill Maher
In these researches I followed the principles of the experimental method that we have established, i.e., that, in presence of a well-noted, new fact which contradicts a theory, instead of keeping the theory and abandoning the fact, I should keep and study the fact, and I hastened to give up the theory.
Claude Bernard
We [MIT Smart Cities research group] try to identify the fundamental underlying design assumptions that everybody takes as a sort of given and unchallengeable when you think about solving these problems. And we try to challenge those assumptions.
William J. Mitchell
I love shooting, when the character is interesting and the script is interesting, but the research beforehand is really fun. The whole process makes me anxious and restless, and I have trouble sleeping, just trying to figure out the character.
Matt Damon
The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not ‘Eureka!’ but ‘That’s funny…’
Isaac Asimov
The silicone we use is the hardest, most UV stable we can get, and we have done enormous amounts of testing and research to get a paint solution that is extremely hardy and repairable.
Patricia Piccinini
I think that the training of architects allows you to see what will happen ten years ahead of time, or twenty. It’s not guessing, it’s not intuitive, it’s based on research – and we may be wrong.
Zaha Hadid
Actors who say they don’t watch TV are stupid. I was raised by TV! And it’s how I research for auditions.
Rebecca Mader
The Dalai Lama says Tibet and the modern world can engage in a conversation; perhaps Tibet has something to share with the rest of us based on its researches into mind, and we have a lot that we can share with Tibet.
Pico Iyer
There are several revenue streams that are near and present that could support a private space station, including in-space manufacturing, microgravity research, and tourism – for both individuals and sovereign nation astronauts – and in-space supply logistics.
Dylan Taylor
According to research, test scores improved by 17.3% for students regularly engaged in chess classes, compared with only 4.6% for children participating in other forms of enriched activities.
Susan Polgar
I see procrastination and research as part of my artistic process.
Lynn Nottage
Key is the question of where do new ideas come from. Historically, four places: government labs, big corporations, startup companies, and research universities.
Nicholas Negroponte
The need to engage businesses and decision makers with customers can only increase in importance, and as it does, the market research industry must recognise that engagement is a facet of what we do.
Alex Johnston
Science knows no politics. Are we in this frenzy of [the Depression] economy, brought about by those who control the wealth of this country, seeking to put a barrier on science and research for the paltry sum of $39,113 out of an appropriation of $100,000,000?
Fiorello H. La Guardia
To date, embryonic stem cell research has not produced a single medical treatment, where ethical, adult stem cell research has produced some 67 medical miracles.
Mike Pence
The research. It is always the best part of writing. And, of course, it is the great excuse to travel.
Michael Scott
This invisibility, however, means that the opportunities for creative research are infinite.
Barbara Smith
But I’m a historian. I wasn’t interested in just being a producer, I was interested in doing research and presenting that research to a general public.
Bernice Johnson Reagon
The research included neutron resonance spectroscopy, the angular distribution of pion elastic and inelastic scattering on nuclei with optical model fitting.
James Rainwater
Along with the rest of the establishment, the BBC which, to be fair, can make superb documentaries – seems to have swallowed the distortions about domestic violence promoted by extreme, manhating feminism through the vehicle of deeply dodgy ‘research’.
Melanie Phillips
Research shows us that children who are read to from a very early age are more likely to begin reading themselves at an early age. They’re more likely to excell in school. They’re more likely to graduate secondary school and go to college.
Laura Bush
Research now means a Google search.
John Palfrey
This was good training for research, because large parts of experimental work are sometimes boring or involve the use of skills in which one is not particularly gifted.
Martin Lewis Perl
What I found, over four years of research and reporting, was a conscious effort — taking place in labs and marketing meetings and grocery-store aisles — to get people hooked on foods that are convenient and inexpensive.
Michael Moss
Doing research on the Web is like using a library assembled piecemeal by pack rats and vandalized nightly.
Roger Ebert
Today, technology is moving faster than the research establishment.
James Heywood
Experimental high energy physics research is a group effort. I have been very fortunate to have had outstanding students and colleagues who have made invaluable contributions to the research with which I have been associated.
Jerome Isaac Friedman
Ann Sjoerdsma has successfully blended the fascinating story of her illustrious father’s scientific achievements [in wide-ranging] drug research, with an enjoyable historic account of the astounding progress of biomedical science during the second half of the 20th century.
Arvid Carlsson
We don’t believe in market research for a new product unknown to the public. So we never do any.
Akio Morita
There is no substitute for face-to-face reporting and research.
Thomas Friedman
Oh, I usually don’t know a whole lot about a subject when I begin; the process itself teaches me a lot as I go along. Usually I know enough about one narrow area of the subject to start myself going, and then everything – including a lot more research – follows from that.
Jim Shepard
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases is an institute of the National Institutes of Health that is responsible predominantly for basic and clinical research in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of immunologic and infectious diseases.
Anthony Fauci
Many Chinese entrepreneurs are now donating for education; others support foundations in health care and research. None of us wants to be the richest guy in the cemetery.
Zhang Xin
I have assistants that use the internet a lot more than I do. I use the internet for photo research, but for me personally, probably just because of my age, I’m not that mechanically inclined.
Colleen Atwood
Copying one person is stealing. Copying ten is research.
Chet Atkins
The question of how much English should be used in international research universities is one with which I am extremely familiar. I would even say I am deeply puzzled by this trend. I am not certain what the correct answer should be.
Henry Rosovsky
To do the writing, I have to have time to do research.
Jean-Jacques Annaud
Facts, and facts alone, are the foundation of science… When one devotes oneself to experimental research it is in order to augment the sum of known facts, or to discover their mutual relations.
Francois Magendie
Microsoft Research has a thing called the Sense Cam that, as you walk around, it’s taking photos all the time. And the software will filter and find the ones that are interesting without having to think, ‘Let’s get out the camera and get that shot.’ You just have that, and software helps you pick what you want.
Bill Gates
My research debunks the myth that many people seem to have . . . that you become a leader by fighting your way to the top. Rather, you become a leader by helping others to the top. Helping your employees is as important, and many times more so, than trying to get the most work out of them.
William Cohen
Beware of finding what you’re looking for.
A favorite aphorism he often used.
Richard Hamming
There’s a general intuition around the nonprofit world these days that younger generations are less likely to join. But I have found in my research that that’s quite wrong.
Arthur C. Brooks
Most innovation is not done by research institutes and national laboratories. It comes from manufacturing – from companies that want to extend their product reach, improve their costs, increase their returns. What’s very important is in-house research.
Vaclav Smil
Humans are born with a hard-wired morality: a sense of good and evil is bred in the bone. I know this claim might sound outlandish, but it’s supported now by research in several laboratories.
Paul Bloom
I started studying shyness in adults in 1972. Shyness operates at so many different levels. Out of that research came the Stanford shyness clinic in 1977.
Philip Zimbardo
The way I prepare is through script analysts and back story. I create back story for a character based on script analysts, filling in as many details as possible. I also do a lot of research.
Katie Cassidy
Researches at Yale found a connection between brain cancer and work environment. The No. 1 most dangerous job for developing brain cancer? Plutonium hat model.
Jimmy Fallon
The companies that can afford to do basic research (and can’t afford not to) are ones that dominate their markets. … It’s cheap insurance, since failing to do basic research guarantees that the next major advance will be oened by someone else.
Robert X. Cringely
Stress overload makes us stupid. Solid research proves it. When we get overstressed, it creates a nasty chemical soup in our brains that makes it hard to pull out of the anxious depressive spiral.
Gail Sheehy
I read nonfiction almost exclusively – both for research and also for pleasure. When I read fiction, it’s almost always in the thriller genre, and it needs to rivet me in the opening few chapters.
Dan Brown
The results of recent research on the impacts of climate change dramatically weaken the case for expensive, near-term abatement programs.
Robert O. Mendelsohn
We had to depend on other institutions to do research on our behalf. We had to use the information that already existed to craft the best practices to distribute throughout the country. And we had to do all of that in ten months.
DeForest Soaries
My talent isn’t so much in traditional research as in finding really smart people and badgering them with questions.
Maria Semple
I would like to take the stigma away. ‘Mastectomy’ the word seemed so scary to me at first. After doing research and seeing the advancements, the surgery has come a long way from 20 years ago. The results can be incredible.
Giuliana Rancic
No one undertakes research in physics with the intention of winning a prize. It is the joy of discovering something no one knew before.
Stephen Hawking
It will soon be 25 years from the date of publication of my first research work. That the scientific aspirations kindled by that early work did not suffer extinction has been due entirely to the opportunities provided for me by the great city of Calcutta.
C. V. Raman
Christian Research Institute want to remain relevant with respect to the culture’s issues and the reason we want to do that is so that people can use the deviations as spring boards or opportunities to share the truth, light, grace and peace that only Jesus Christ can bring to the human heart.
Hank Hanegraaff
And I really do think that the difficulty of research makes it more real to you than punching a thing to find out how many men were killed at this particular action.
Shelby Foote
Research is an organized method for keeping you reasonably dissatisfied with what you have.
Charles Kettering
The list of qualities (an investor should have) include patience, self-reliance, common sense, a tolerance for pain, open-mindedness, detachment, persistence, humility, flexibility, a willingness to do independent research, an equal willingness to admit mistakes, and the ability to ignore general panic.
Peter Lynch
I went to the trash pile at Tuskegee Institute and started my laboratory with bottles, old fruit jars and any other thing I found I could use. … [The early efforts were] worked out almost wholly on top of my flat topped writing desk and with teacups, glasses, bottles and reagents I made myself.
George Washington Carver
I have written about Chile extensively, and therefore I have read many books on the subject, mostly for research.
Isabel Allende
Space exploration is important research to our economic and national defense, and America’s space program is a symbol of our success as a scientifically and technologically advanced nation.
Randy Forbes
To find out what happens to a system when you interfere with it you have to interfere with it (not just passively observe it).
George E. P. Box
Remember that no piece of honestly conducted research is ever wasted, even if it seems so at the time. Put it away in a drawer, and ten, twenty or thirty years down the road, it will come back and help you in ways you never anticipated.
Anthony James Leggett
In 1986, I was asked by the then-Dean of Science at the University of British Columbia, Dr. R.C. Miller, Jr., to establish a new interdisciplinary institute, the Biotechnology Laboratory. I decided that it was time for me to start paying back for the thirty years of fun that I had been able to have in research.
Michael Smith
Governments will always play a huge part in solving big problems. They set public policy and are uniquely able to provide the resources to make sure solutions reach everyone who needs them. They also fund basic research, which is a crucial component of the innovation that improves life for everyone.
Bill Gates
But this is where you get all the market research and things get in danger of becoming formulaic, and where you depend on brands and getting recognised actors. It’s the thing that precludes risk very often, otherwise everyone would be avant-garde all over the place.
Colin Firth
We need a Peace Department in our national government to do extensive research on peaceful ways of resolving conflicts. Then we can ask other countries to create similar departments.
Peace Pilgrim
Did Alexander Graham Bell do any market research before he invented the telephone?
Walter Isaacson
Medical research is “immoral even it it’s essential.”
Ingrid Newkirk
In my day, everything came from my belly button and seat of the pants. Today, everything is done from research.
George Wilson
Only sound common sense, respectable fellow that he is, in the homely realm of his own four walls, has very wonderful adventures directly he ventures out into the wide world of research.
Friedrich Engels
I felt differently about her [Gypsy Rose Lee] during every phase of the research and writing process. Often, I felt incredibly sorry for her; she had an extremely difficult childhood and a complicated ‘to say the least’ relationship with her family, her mother especially.
Karen Abbott
Research shows that girls look at leadership differently than boys.
Anna Maria Chavez
You don’t want to become guilty of plagiarism by letting someone else’s words get inadvertently mixed in with your own. If you do feel the need to paste in a block of research while you’re writing, be sure to highlight the copied text in a different color so you can go back and remove or rewrite it entirely later.
Gayle Lynds
[The main focus in my life now is] to open people’s minds so no one will be so conceited that they think they have the total truth. They should be eager to learn, to listen, to research and not to confine, to hurt, to kill, those who disagree with them.
John Templeton
My research career has been devoted to understanding human decision-making and problem-solving processes. The pursuit of this goal has led me into the fields of political science, economics, cognitive psychology, computer science and philosophy of science, among others.
Herbert A. Simon
Fortunately for common sense, psychological research has shown that babies with more than one attachment are less distressed whenmother leaves to go to work. They are more content and playful in the presence of other adults, meaning that they feel secure with people other than Mother.
Sandra Scarr
I don’t believe in writing anything that I don’t know about or haven’t researched about personally. I like to transport the reader to places, and in order to do that I have to do the research.
Jackie Collins
I’m such a history-nerd that, with time for research, I could probably enjoy writing in just about any time period.
Susan Holloway Scott
Our goal has been to more effectively promote the value of publicly-supported research at our universities, both to the Congress and to the general public.
Charles M. Vest
When people affected by epilepsy are reluctant to expose their condition, the public remains in the dark about it – a tragic irony that has made patient care and raising funds for research more than challenging.
Lynda Resnick
There are no projects per se in the Computing Sciences Research Center.
Ken Thompson
The main criterion for an award (of a research contract from the NCI) is the capacity to demonstrate the relevance of the project to the program’s target. But the only sure way to prove this relevance is to have, in fact, already proved it.
June Goodfield
Leaders are not modest, and more importantly, the extensive social science research on narcissism, self-promotion, and similar constructs shows that these qualities and behaviors are useful for getting hired, achieving promotions, keeping one’s job, and obtaining a higher salary.
Jeffrey Pfeffer
Embryonic stem cell research has the potential to alleviate so much suffering. Surely, by working together we can harness its life-giving potential.
Nancy Reagan
I do think that if you were to be scrupulous and research into it you would find that certain types of natural psychedelics have, if anything, anti-addictive properties. And all the evidence really points towards that. But you have the people who are running these drug rehab situations, they demonized all the drugs.
Daniel Pinchbeck
We must address, individually and collectively, moral and ethical issues raised by cutting-edge research in artificial intelligence and biotechnology, which will enable significant life extension, designer babies, and memory extraction.
Klaus Schwab
It is common, and encouraged by many journals, for research to be judged by the impact factor of the journal that publishes it. But as a journal’s score is an average, it says little about the quality of any individual piece of research.
Randy Schekman
I have always felt that, aside from research that violates universal human mores, when it comes to technological applications, that which can be done will be done.
Lawrence M. Krauss
‘Top Boy,’ for some people, was very controversial because it seemed to be portraying black people in a certain light that they thought to be stereotypical. However, what I would say is that the writer went and lived in Hackney in East London for a long time and did his research really well.
Clare-Hope Ashitey
Privacy about giving is counterproductive. There is solid scientific research showing that people are more likely to give if they can see that others are giving. The richest people, in particular, should be setting an example.
Peter Singer
Scientists have determined that the most irritating sound to the human ear is the sound of a knife cutting a glass bottle. And the second-worst sound is a fork scratching a glass bottle. Evidently they did all their research at the Picnic for Morons.
Peter Sagal
Among the various forms of science which are reaching and affecting the new popular tradition, we have reckoned Anthropology. Pleasantly enough, Anthropology has herself but recently emerged from that limbo of the unrecognised in which Psychical Research is pining.
Andrew Lang
The leading idea which is present in all our [geological] researches, and which accompanies every fresh observation, the sound of which to the ear of the student of Nature seems echoed from every part of her works, is-Time!-Time!-Time!
George Julius Poulett Scrope
Study and research into truth often only serves to make us see by experience our natural ignorance.
Madeleine de Souvre, marquise de Sable
For me, losing a tennis match isn’t failure, it’s research.
Billie Jean King
We must always emphasize research and development of science and mathematics, and I can think of no better way to achieve this than through our future in space.
Nick Lampson
As a rule, I am lazy and prefer to avoid anything resembling work, and research feels like work, as opposed to my strong suit, which is sitting around making things up.
Arthur Phillips
The Director of the Laboratory, George Reynolds, was most supportive of my efforts to work independently. There followed for ten years a glorious time for research.
James Cronin
It was basic research in the photoelectric field-in the photoelectric effect that would one day lead to solar panels. It was basic research in physics that would eventually produce the CAT scan. The calculations of today’s GPS satellites are based on the equations that Einstein put to paper more than a century ago.
Barack Obama
In true-life dramas, you have to do so much research. It’s a big responsibility to make sure things are as correct as possible. In ‘Robin Hood’, you have more artistic license – it’s all action, adventure and reaction. This gives everyone a chance to make their characters their own and to make them believable.
Joanne Froggatt
On the day he unveiled the Macintosh, a reporter from Popular Science asked Jobs what type of market research he had done. Jobs responded by scoffing, “Did Alexander Graham Bell do any market research before he invented the telephone?
Walter Isaacson
My decision to begin research in radio astronomy was influenced both by my wartime experience with electronics and antennas and by one of my teachers, Jack Ratcliffe, who had given an excellent course on electromagnetic theory during my final undergraduate year.
Antony Hewish
A problem of future research is to clarify how young children learn what type of social comparative information is most useful for efficacy evaluation
Albert Bandura
Even a brilliant research scientist can waste his or her efforts, in [Stephan Hawking’s] case on theoretically impossible lines of research, if he or she rejects clear evidence pointing to God.
Hugh Ross
I always market research my books before I hand them in by showing them to five or six close friends who I trust to be honest with me, so they are very heavily re-written already.
Helen Fielding
We learned the value of research in World War II.
Amar Bose
The research phase was really fascinating – I’m not a closeted nerd, I’m an out-of-the-closet nerd.
Natalie Merchant
I do think actually in this case the government does get credit for funding some of the basic research.
Steve Case
The strong point of American research universities is the manner in which trustees, presidents and other senior executives retain a considerable amount of decision-making authority while at the same time maintaining a culture of open exchange and participatory debate.
Henry Rosovsky
In market research I did at Microsoft Corp. in the early 1990s, I estimated that the ‘Wall Street Journal’ took in about 75 cents per copy from subscribers, $1.25 at the newsstand and a whopping $5 per copy from ads. The ad revenue let them run a far bigger newsroom than subscribers were paying for.
Nathan Myhrvold
If intellectual curiosity, professional pride, and ambition are the dominant incentives to research, then assuredly no one has a fairer chance of gratifying them than a mathematician.
G. H. Hardy
We sometimes talk as if “original research” were a peculiar prerogative of scientists or at least of advanced students. But all thinking is research, and all research is native, original, with him who carries it on, even if everybody else in the world already is sure of what he is still looking for.
John Dewey
I’m one of the school of people who don’t do research of the reality of the thing or the unreality of the thing. In all the movies I’ve done, I’ve never done any research.
Billy Connolly
The flight of most members of a profession to the high empyrean, where they can work peacefully on purely scientific problems, isolated from the turmoil of real life, was perhaps quite appropriate at an earlier stage of science; but in today’s world it is a luxury we cannot afford.
Gerald Holton
If oil companies were to invest their high profits into alternative fuel research it will help America move toward new forms of energy.
Rick Renzi
The attitude of the Church was not as dogmatic as is often assumed. Interpretations of Bible passages had been revised in the light of scientific research before. Everyone regarded the earth as spherical and as freely floating in space though the Bible tells a different story.
Paul Feyerabend
I think history would say that medical research has, throughout many changes of parties, remained as one of the shining lights of bipartisan agreement, that people are concerned about health for themselves, for their families, for their constituents.
Francis Collins
I don’t inflict horrors on readers. In my research, I’ve uncovered truly terrible documentations of cruelty and torture, but I leave that offstage. I always pull back and let the reader imagine the details. We all know to one degree or another the horrors of war.
Alan Furst
I’ve pursued a lifetime in the research on the social determinants of health and more recently been packaging not just my research but global research on this topic in a way that I hope will influence policy.
Michael Marmot
It did not seem likely that I was destined to undertake research on typhus.
Charles Jules Henry Nicole
I give everybody the benefit of the doubt. Anything you get into, you should research it and figure its roots and try to really be a real strong part of it.
Roger Miret
I decided I was a feminist and this seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Apparently I am among the ranks of women whose expressions are seen as too strong, too aggressive, isolating, anti-men and, unattractive.
Emma Watson
If I want to stop a research program I can always do it by getting a few experts to sit in on the subject, because they know right away that it was a fool thing to try in the first place.
Charles Kettering
I thought if I was going to live a life in this land I was accidentally born on, I must people it; I must have a history. . .. I’m looking for these people inside me, wherever they may be; that is my form of research.
Sebastian Barry
You have to be very careful with who you do business. It’s like a marriage. Do your research and check references.
David Wolfe
Research shows that the deciscions of a group as a whole are more thoughtful and creative when there is minority dissent than when it is absent.
Philip Zimbardo
The funds from the sale were put into research and general teaching budgets at the university. Wharton Econometric Forecasting Associates, Inc., is now a growing enterprise with many model and other econometric facilities.
Lawrence R. Klein
Our combination of great research universities, a pro-risk business culture, deep pools of innovation-seeking equity capital and reliable business and contract law is unprecedented and unparalleled in the world.
Marc Andreessen
Research by Donald A. Redelmeier and Sheldon M. Singh has found that, on average, Oscar winners live nearly four years longer than nominees that don’t win.
David Brooks
I remember reading an interview with a writer who said that in nonfiction if you have one lie it sort of messes it up. But in fiction the real details give you so much more credibility, because people do so much research just to write fiction. In fiction you’re trying to recreate something lifelike.
Edwidge Danticat
A 2011 report produced by Forrester Research estimated that the revenue generated through the sales of smartphone and tablet applications will reach $38 billion annually by 2015. Think about that: An industry that did not exist in 2006 will be generating $38 billion in revenues within a decade. . . .
Thomas Friedman
Life science research can be done on multiple platforms. Since we have a very small number of people flying into space, the more people you have, the better.
Laurel Clark
I started doing some more specific research on Wales in that period because I like the idea of being authentic to the territory, and with that came the knowledge that there was this great rebellion that was happening with the Marcher barons and conflict with the king. A lot of it wasn’t documented by the English.
Kurt Sutter
Founded when Abraham Lincoln believed education could lead the nation out of its darkest days, Ohio State now provides a powerful platform of interdisciplinary academic programs, world-class scholars, outstanding students, and extensive research capabilities.
Gordon Gee
The United States is locked in a new arms race for that most precious resource – the future entrepreneurs upon whom economic growth depends. Substantial research shows that immigrants play a key role in American job creation.
Eric Ries
The mere fact that my comments have caused such strong protests, although I’m not a European, and also the fact that I have been compared with certain persons in German history indicates how charged with conflict the atmosphere for research is in your country. Here in Iran you needn’t worry.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Our struggle is to identify the sources of revenue and the means to obtain the funds. Without funds, all the planning and research studies can’t help us.
John Breaux
If killing [animal research scientists] is the only way to stop them, then I said killing them would certainly be justified.
Jerry Vlasak
Many companies restrict Internet activity so heavily that it makes it difficult for people to do online research. The most obvious example? Checking the Facebook profile of someone you just interviewed.
Travis Bradberry
Research material can turn up anywhere – in a dusty old letter in an archive, a journal or some old photographs you find in a charity shop.
Sara Sheridan
I was a Ph.D. student at a very reputable university, I was a Harvard research associate at one of the world’s premier leadership institutions.
Paula Broadwell
We invest in early childhood education. We invest additional job training dollars. We make sure that we’ve got a strong research and development strategy so that we continue to innovate. Rebuilding our infrastructure, which we know will attract businesses.
Barack Obama
Politics is not my cup of tea. I would like to focus on research and education, and will also work to help start-up ecosystem.
Kris Gopalakrishnan
Do this research if we don’t have a season — watch how much evil, which we call crime, watch how much crime picks up, if you take away our game.
Ray Lewis
Somebody said writing is easy, you just sit down at your typewriter and open a vein. It depends on the book. Some, I have to do quite a lot of research, which I like. Others are much closer to me.
Anne Rivers Siddons
Curiosity, earnest research to learn the hidden laws of nature, gladness akin to rapture, as they unfolded to me, are among the earliest sensations I can remember.
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
The best research is the research that you don’t know that you are doing.
Terry Pratchett
I think the best part of being an author is that I get to learn about anything I want and explain it away as research.
Patrick Rothfuss
I research best practices and recipes for success and failure to craft personalised policies for my city.
Aja Brown
I’m not a method actor, but I’m a big research kind of actor.
Ruben Santiago-Hudson
I vowed to myself that when I grew up and became a theoretical physicist, in addition to doing research, I would write books that I would have liked to have read as a child. So whenever I write, I imagine myself, as a youth, reading my books, being thrilled by the incredible advances being made in physics and science.
Michio Kaku
Invest in basic research and recruit the best minds.
Ahmed H. Zewail
The first misconception is that embryonic stem cell research is not legal. The fact is, embryonic stem cell research is completely legal. Research on embryonic stem cells has taken place for years.
Virginia Foxx
The Nobel Prize is given as a personal award but it also honors the field of research in which I have worked and it also honors my students and colleagues.
Robert Hofstadter
It has become more important than ever that we teach students how to do research, and how to evaluate different sources of information. (Jimmy Wales, IB World, 68, Sept. 2013, p.10. )
Jimmy Wales
The reason the Democrats are so intent on passing a stem-cell bill is they’re depending on the research to grow themselves a spine.
Will Durst
Research and technology parks are an important part of the innovation infrastructure in Canada. Our Government’s investment will increase the foreign profile of western Canadian companies, create new jobs, and stimulate economic growth.
Michelle Rempel
Gertrude Stein … the Madame Curie of language. Because in her deep research she has crushed thousands of tons of matter to extract the radium of the word.
Mina Loy
Tax dollars go to projects that have little or nothing to do with the public good things like fruit fly research in Paris, France. I kid you not.
Sarah Palin
I’ve done more than 10,000 interviews, and I’ve learnt that you’ve got to do your homework. I bury myself in research beforehand. And you have to be genuinely interested in people; there’s a cornucopia of great, ordinary people out there with wonderful, colourful stories.
Ray Martin
Human beings have always been creative. The guys who were making the pyramids, and archaeological research has showed us this, had little figurines made by the workers, to express their devotion to their god.
Bill Viola
New York has been, and will continue to be, a magnet for people from all over the world. This is where the arts, business, research and technology converge to create the world’s foremost urban economy.
Michael Bloomberg
A monumental decision such as starting a family requires persuasive dissertations, licences, spreadsheets and field research. That’s what I assumed until one night when we were lying in bed and, if I recall correctly, I asked Tracy if we were ready to have a family now, and she said sure. That was it.
Ryan Knighton
People often ask me what is the most effective technique for transforming their life. It is a little embarrassing that after years and years of research and experimentation, I have to say that the best answer is – just be a little kinder.
Aldous Huxley
In a world of widely distributed knowledge, companies cannot afford to rely entirely on their own research, but should instead buy or license processes or inventions (i.e. patents) from other companies. In addition, internal inventions not being used in a firm’s business should be taken outside the company.
Henry Chesbrough
I write nonfiction in this thriller-esque style. I have all the facts; I research it. I have thousands of pages of court documents… I try to get inside my stories.
Ben Mezrich
Research your idea. See if there’s a demand. A lot of people have great ideas, but they don’t know if there’s a need for it. You also have to research your competition.
Magic Johnson
Anything that you can do a tiny bit of research about, I’ll turn it into an obsession.
Rob Corddry
As an actor, you’re used to putting on characters, taking them off, becoming someone else, doing your research, and working on that.
Angela Bassett
Congress should fund research on the effects that violent video games have on young minds… We don’t benefit from ignorance. We don’t benefit from not knowing the science.
Barack Obama
My father was working on his Ph.D. on Danish choral music – the Danish choral music of Carl Nielsen – so over there to do research.
Pete Docter
To create something you want to sell, you first study and research the market, then you develop the product to the best of your ability.
Clive Cussler
It was a show where you were given a quote out of current events and you had to identify who said it. I was reading eight newspapers a day and had compiled a file of about 300 quotes. I really had to do my research. The White House press didn’t have to bone up on any of it.
June Lockhart
Well, thank you and that’s for them, but for me, I want to look back at a body of work where when you do the research and you explore the psyche of a character, where she’s been, where she is and where she’s going.
Pam Grier
We know from research that growth is actually contagious, so if you want to reach your goals, you’ve got to get around people that are going in the same direction you want to be going, and you will catch the success.
Henry Cloud
Research does not support any part of Race to the Top
Diane Ravitch
Every work brings new and different challenges. Research is always helpful, regardless of whether the play is contemporary or not.
Gideon Glick
How does a weaker minority dominate a physically superior majority? In my research I learned that this is accomplished by destroying the slave’s mind. More effective than whips and guns was the simple act of outlawing the teaching of slaves to read and to write.
Kyle Baker
We cannot wait for others to make a difference, we have to be the change ourselves. To be a part of the making of yet another cancer hospital is a blessing in itself.’ Watch me live on ARY Digital and donate to Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre in Peshawar as much as you can.
Hadiqa Kiani
To have a great university library near you with plenty of archives of all the journals that you want to research in the twentieth century is a remarkable asset, and I spend a day, maybe two days a week in that library. I just plain love it.
John Shelby Spong
I love science. I hate supposition, superstition, exaggeration and falsified data. Show me the research, show me the results, show me the conclusions – and then show me some qualified peer reviews of all that.
Bill Vaughan
Now, ignorance is one thing, ignorance can be cured. But many of the Republican leaders opposing this research know better.
Ron Reagan
In passing, I firmly believe that research should be offset by a certain amount of teaching, if only as a change from the agony of research. The trouble, however, I freely admit, is that in practice you get either no teaching, or else far too much.
John Edensor Littlewood
Growing up, I had always been an avid bookworm and a straight-A student. I approached my cancer the same way I approached writing my senior thesis in college: I buried my head in research journals, interviewed experts and scoured the Internet for information.
Suleika Jaouad
The reason I know about ‘Tomb Raider’ is from when I was researching ‘Elephant.’ It was 1999, and I was trying to research the Columbine-massacre kids, and they had played video games, and I, at the time, had never really seen one. It was a world I didn’t know.
Gus Van Sant
Adam Berenson knows how to compose, organize an ensemble, do musical research, play solo and trio piano, write for musical journals, and enlist others to his cause. A very fine musician.
Paul Bley
I’m always determined that as a novelist I’m going to go out there and research my characters very thoroughly before I start writing.
Chris Cleave
My research, even before 1972, moved in directions beyond those cited for the Nobel Memorial Prize. Most of it, in one way or another, deals with information as an economic variable, both as to its production and as to its use.
Kenneth Arrow
The IPCC doesn’t do any research itself. We only develop our assessments on the basis of peer-reviewed literature.
Rajendra K. Pachauri
As neither of these two great research scientists was able to find the solution to the mystery, it is small wonder that none of their contemporaries were able to do so either.
Robert Barany
To cure ALS medically is not economical. The realities are that it’s difficult to find funding for research for a medical cure. I believe in developing technology as opposed to medical research. Technology can be economical.
Steve Gleason
Qatar is giving 2.8% of our GDP to research. This is something again that is a breakthrough, as nobody was even thinking of research as a tool or component for advancement in this part of the world.
Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned
It’s good to have high-quality competition. It helps drive research forward at a faster pace.
Shuji Nakamura
It is idle to expect any great advancement in science from the superinducing and engrafting of new things upon old. We must begin anew from the very foundations, unless we would revolve for ever in a circle with mean and contemptible progress.
Francis Bacon
The problem with contemporary art is that no one bothers to do the research necessary to give people what they want.
Michael Scott
It is a good morning exercise for a research scientist to discard a pet hypothesis every day before breakfast. It keeps him young.
Konrad Lorenz
Original research starts all inspiration. Get inside the head of the consumer. Understand their needs, hopes and dreams. Deliver to their expectation. Have your team do the work. They will then have the framework for the solution. If they believe and they understand, the results will be their results.
Michael J. Silverstein
My drug of choice is historical research.
E. Lee Spence
It is ironic that in the same year we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the discovery of DNA, some would have us ban certain forms of DNA medical research. Restricting medical research has very real human consequences, measured in loss of life and tremendous suffering for patients and their families.
Michael J. Fox
Much of outcomes research is a systematic attempt to exploit what is known and make it better.
Kevin Kelly
I don’t do research for my novels. Obviously, in my other line of work as a reporter and a columnist, I’ve had the opportunity to get to know both social workers and TV talk-show hosts.
Anna Quindlen
It’s maybe an unrecognized fact of academia that what you spend a lot of your time doing is convincing people of your vision and raising funds to support your research activity. So in that sense, transitioning to a startup wasn’t that big of a transition.
Karl Iagnemma
A lot of times I’m on my own trying to find research material and things like that and trying to educate myself on the world and the film that I’m working on.
Logan Lerman
Being at NASA and having the access to both computing capability and satellite observation capability is kind of the ideal research situation to try to understand global climate change.
James Hansen
The CDC has always been an example of unbiased and thorough medical research, both in America and around the world, and we must continue to provide the doctors and experts at the CDC the resources they need to help solve and prevent public health crises.
Lucy McBath
From journalism I learned to write under pressure, to work with deadlines, to have limited space and time, to conduct and interview, to find information, to research, and above all, to use language as efficiently as possible and to remember always that there is a reader out there.
Isabel Allende
In the war, most young men were inducted into the armed forces at the age of 17. A group of students was permitted to attend university before taking part in wartime research projects.
John Pople
We think that it is the best scientists working in the frontier fields of science who are best able to judge what is good and what is bad – if any – in the application of their scientific research.
Kenichi Fukui
When I want to choose to work with someone, you know, I definitely have to do some research on their background and how they were raised as people.
Theophilus London
The first thing you have to do is get immersed in the project, organizing yourself, knowing what you are going after and not going after. It is extremely important to know what you don’t want to find. Research to me is as important or more important than the writing. It is the foundation upon which the book is built.
Leon Uris
I thought my life was mapped out. Research, living in the forest, teaching and writing. But in ’86 I went to a conference and realised the chimpanzees were disappearing. I had worldwide recognition and a gift of communication. I had to use them.
Jane Goodall
If one were not animated with the desire to discover laws, they would escape the most enlightened attention.
Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac
I tend to delay writing by doing more research – it’s really the act of writing the piece that I have the hardest time with.
James Surowiecki
Imaginary friends are one of the weirder forms of pretend play in childhood. But the research shows that imaginary friends actually help children understand the other people around them and imagine all the many ways that people could be.
Alison Gopnik
I talked to ex-wives of musicians of the ’70s for research. They’re the funniest people in the world, yet there is this sad, beautiful thing in their eyes that says they’ve seen more than they could ever possibly tell you.
Kate Hudson
Don’t forget that Linux became only possible because 20 years of OS research was carefully studied, analyzed, discussed and thrown away.
Ingo Molnar
I like to tweet out nutrition research because I did my bachelor of science degree in dietetics.
Maye Musk
Dr. Karel Culik is an outstanding applied mathematician, a specialist in algebra, logic, computer sciences and mathematical linguistics. In 1965, he visited the linguistics research program at MIT, and we have worked together on several projects since.
Noam Chomsky
You frighten a lot of scientists. If they say that climate is not changing, they lose their research grants. And some people cannot afford that; they become silent, or a few of us speak up, because we think that it’s for the honesty of science, that we have to do it.
Nils-Axel Morner
Research has shown that even small amounts of processed food alter the chemical balance in our brain and cause negative mood swings along with noticeable dips ill energy.
Marilu Henner
I will continue to work in Congress to support Lyme disease research and education through funding for the National Institutes of Health and the CDC.
Elise Stefanik
Basic research is like shooting an arrow in the air and, where it lands, painting a target.
Homer Burton Adkins
From my perspective, it appears that a great thrust of research on health and longevity is pointing towards improving our immune system – that within an empowered immune system are the health solutions and longevity answers we’re looking for.
David Wolfe
In this metaphor we actually have a picture of the computational universe, a metaphor which I hope to make scientifically precise as part of a research program.
Seth Lloyd
Time spent researching varies from book to book. Some novels require months, even years of research, others very little. I try to do most of my research before I begin but inevitably questions emerge during the writing.
Jonathan Kellerman
I think we’re vastly over-invested in universities. Universities should be relatively small and provide excellent education and research in a number of specialized areas. I think the vast majority of young people should be going through non-university, post-secondary training.
Stephen Harper
It may sound lovey-dovey, but there’s research showing the positive effect of meditation on parts of the brain that control emotion.
Tara Brach
The consistent growth in overall revenues shows marketers may be shifting more of their total advertising budgets to online. This is a natural development as research shows more consumers are spending a larger percentage of their media time online, while the flow of advertising dollars follows.
David Silverman
Congress has a responsibility to review research paid for by hard-working American taxpayers.
Lamar S. Smith
Now science has presented us with a hope called stem cell research, which may provide our scientists with many answers that have for so long been beyond our grasp.
Nancy Reagan
I used to think that when I set out that doing the research was enough! But then the gaps would emerge that could only be filled by the imagination. And imagination only comes when you privilege the subconscious, when you make delay and procrastination work for you.
Hilary Mantel
I believe that we as the leader of the Free World must provide important leadership on the ethical parameters, the ethical constraints that this research requires.
Ron Kind
The education of young people in science is at least as important, maybe more so, than the research itself.
Glenn T. Seaborg
Basic scientific research is scientific capital.
Vannevar Bush
It’s interesting – an actor’s research is different to just historian’s research. I’m looking for things that I can actually physically use in the movie.
Ioan Gruffudd
We shall be forced to attempt planned and directed research employing hundreds of workers for many years, and this cannot be done without risking the loss of independence and originality. This is a serious and fundamental obstacle but it may be overcome in two ways.
John Desmond Bernal
Research shows that the wealthier, more educated, and healthier a nation, the less violence and civil unrest among its populace, and the less likely that unrest will spread across its borders.
Peter Diamandis
I find research fascinating and always conduct some before I begin writing, and then fill in the rest as needed. I read stacks of books and also had the opportunity to travel to England to do more research.
Julie Klassen
With the ministry’s motto ‘Research on a Shoestring’ emblazoned on his coat of arms, he has to struggle with a treasury more interested in surtax relief than national survival. [Responding to an earlier statement by British Science Minister, Lord Hailsham, that British scientists were being recruited by the U.S.]
Harold Wilson
I am busy just now again on Electro-Magnetism and think I have got hold of a good thing but can’t say; it may be a weed instead of a fish that after all my labour I may at last pull up.
Michael Faraday
I see myself as life-sized, certainly not a supersized personality, and apparently after 30 years of television, that’s what the audience thinks of me as well. I know this because for the first time in my career, I’ve just seen market research, and the thing I am known for is being authentic.
Jane Pauley
I try to do a lot of research beforehand so I know where I want to go with a scene. I try not to get too stressed about it, because I find that’s the worst thing
Jennifer Connelly
When I was doing research on the M.C.s and spending time with these cats, one of the things that struck me and made me realize that I could deliver this world to an audience was their really dark and acute sense of humor.
Kurt Sutter
I freely admit that the remembrance of David Hume was the very thing that many years ago first interrupted my dogmatic slumber and gave a completely different direction to my researches in the field of speculative philosophy.
Immanuel Kant
I got the job [in Moana], and the next day I was on a plane to New Zealand, where the rest of the team was already doing research, and meeting with different choirs, and sort of really soaking up the music, the musical world of, the musical heritage of this part of the world.
Lin-Manuel Miranda
Research has shown that the perceived style of leadership is by far the most important thing to most voters in evaluating officeholders and candidates.
Robert Teeter
You wanna do a lot of backstory for your character – as an actor, you wanna research that. But on the show, it’s fun to remain in that naive place as you go along, and be able to continue to discover things about your character as the writers come up with them.
Alison Brie
Well I’ve been writing books. So that, by its nature, is kind of a solitary occupation. And from time to time I have research help, but mostly I’ve done those completely on my own.
Caroline Kennedy
The world is so full of a number of things, I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings.
Robert Louis Stevenson
[Pure research] is worth every penny it costs.
Harold Urey
Research is of considerable importance in certain fields, such as science and history.
Fred Saberhagen
Research: the distance between an idea and its realization.
David Sarnoff
The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet. The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together.
Barack Obama
The techniques have galloped ahead of the concepts. We have moved away from studying the complexity of the organism; from processes and organisation to composition.
James Black
In Britain, like most of the developed world, stem-cell research is regarded as a great opportunity. America will be left behind if it doesn’t change policy.
Stephen Hawking
Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and to think what nobody else has thought.
Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
My assignment was exclusively in the research field, and my first published paper, On the Optimal Use of Winds for Flight Planning, was the outgrowth of that work.
Kenneth Arrow
To me, the Quran is a research book.
Fatema Mernissi
I’m not a foodie; I’m an eatie. I don’t have anything against foodies. I just don’t have the time or the interest to do that much research.
Jim Gaffigan
What mankind can dream
research and technology can achieve
C. Walton Lillehei
Emma Watson
A lady with a clipboard stopped me in the street the other day. She said, ‘Can you spare a few minutes for cancer research?’ I said, ‘All right, but we won’t get much done.’
Jimmy Carr
Research and development needs permanent tax credits to build the technology that spurs our growth. But no government programs alone can get America’s students to study more science and math; parents must push and help their children to meet this goal.
Ernest Istook
Research is always the best part. As we dug deeper into the history and mythology behind each of the hallows, we discovered more and more stories – some of them deserving of novels in themselves.
Michael Scott
Thus my research on dromology, on the logic and impact of speed, necessarily implies the study of the organisation of territory.
Paul Virilio
Hmmm… cooking with wine? I usually drink wine while cooking… I do a good braised short ribs with cabernet, though. We’re big red wine drinkers here. All that research showing that it’s good for you takes the guilt away.
Alafair Burke
Scientific fraud, plagiarism, and ghost writing are increasingly being reported in the news media, creating the impression that misconduct has become a widespread and omnipresent evil in scientific research.
Heinrich Rohrer
Over the years, however, the research evidence keeps piling up, and it points strongly to the conclusion that a high degree of empathy in a relationship is possibly the most potent and certainly one of the most potent factors in bringing about change and learning.
Carl Rogers
I’d studied 16th century science and magic. I thought it was strange that people were interested in the same kinds of things my research was about. The more I thought about it, the more intriguing it became and pretty soon I was writing a novel about a reluctant witch and a 1500-year-old vampire.
Deborah Harkness
I remember vividly my student days, spending hours at the light microscope, turning endlessly the micrometric screw, and gazing at the blurred boundary which concealed the mysterious ground substance where the secret mechanisms of cell life might be found.
Albert Claude
Google is my rapid response research assistant. It’s the Swiss Army knife of information retrieval.
Lloyd Grove
Research is the live heart of the scientific life … Greatness of position, respect for past accomplishments, the Nobel Prize itself — none of these can compensate for the loss of vitality only research provides.
Vivian Gornick
When you research prolific songwriters, it is usually later in their career they write songs that they distance themselves from, or it’s about other people.
Paloma Faith
Bush reiterated his stand to conservatives opposing his decision on stem cell research. He said today he believes life begins at conception and ends at execution.
Jay Leno
Once I discovered the endless fascination of doing the research and of doing the writing, I knew I had found what I wanted to do in my life. Every book is a new journey. I never felt I was an expert on a subject as I embarked on a project.
David McCullough
If a lot of people feel like this company is undervalued and go out and buy the stock, the stock price will go up reflecting the higher value of this company. You might have information because you trade with them or because you’ve done some research on them.
Robert F. Engle
I did as much research as I could and I took ownership of this illness, because if you don’t take care of your body, where are you going to live?
Karen Duffy
We don’t devote enough scientific research to finding a cure for jerks.
Bill Watterson
After a few years of intensive research, we found a way to use a pulsed laser directed into a nozzle to vaporize any material, allowing for the first time the atoms of any element in the periodic table to be produced cold in a supersonic beam.
Richard Smalley
On the analogy of ‘Dictionary Johnson,’ we call Fred R. Shapiro, editor of the just-published Yale Book of Quotations (well worth the $50 price), ‘Quotationeer Shapiro.’ Shapiro does original research, earning his 1,067-page volume a place on the quotation shelf next to Bartlett’s and Oxford’s.
William Safire
I think doctors have really come up to speed and understand that more women than men die of heart disease. [But] all the research on heart disease has really been based on men, and needs to be updated with research on women – even very early-stage research is done using male rats!
Laura Bush
But parents and schools have their priorities; making sure our kids eat right because research shows a clear connection between nutrition and student performance in school.
Jared Polis
I definitely go on gut instinct but it has always had the back up of research and information.
Richard Branson
How much research I have to do depends on the nature of the story. For fantasy, none at all.
Alan Dean Foster
There’s a lot of research behind the scenes that you don’t get to see, but I have an instinct that my dad nurtured from when I was born. I was very lucky then.
Steve Irwin
The books take a year just to do the drawing. I will travel to a country to do the research and get ideas. Sometimes I don’t travel to do research, but mostly I do. It takes a long time, but do I ever get tired of it? Not really. The characters kind of grow and evolve.
Jan Brett
What might we learn from lines of research that are off the beaten track? They check accepted ideas, always a good thing, and there is the chance nature has prepared yet another surprise for us.
Jim Peebles
The nature of the hybrid research/design model means that we often can see design efforts as attempts not to concretize the outcomes of research but instead to justify, promote, or initiate them
Paul Dourish
Science is simply common sense at its best.
Thomas Huxley
Decades of research has shown that play is crucial to physical, intellectual, and social-emotiona l development at all ages. This is especially true of the purest form of play: the unstructured, self-motivated, imaginative, independent kind, where children initiate their own games and even invent their own rules.
David Elkind
I found myself wondering, what would it be like to have a strange woman living in your home, nursing your child? My resulting research into the private lives of women in the 18th and 19th centuries inspired me and provided the backbone for [Lady of Milkweed Manor] novel.
Julie Klassen
It’s a little embarrassing that after 45 years of research & study, the best advice I can give people is to be a little kinder to each other.
Aldous Huxley
Derek looked at Kylie and half chuckled. “The last time I saw that look from girls, there was a handwritten note on my neighbor’s tree house that read ‘No boys allowed.’ I’ll see you. And if I get anything from my computer research, I’ll let you know.
C.C. Hunter
Now, Venus is an extremely hostile environment, and as such presents a lot of challenges for a science fiction author who wants to create life there. However, as I began to research it more thoroughly, I found myself intrigued by the possibilities the world offers.
Sarah Zettel
Research states that we have a two-week window to act after being inspired by an experience, before the brain is compelled to move on. I have always thought that while some documentaries I have seen have educated me, they have failed to engage and drive me to act in support of the message.
Sam Branson
The designs were based on quite a lot of research of what a movie musical is, filtered through the eyes of today. If we’d gone strictly with the ’20s, the movement would have been impaired.
Colleen Atwood
I’m not a psychopath, I’m a fully functioning sociopath. Do your research.
Arthur Conan Doyle
The research they do is incredible. I was overwhelmed. They have a great thing going on out there. In reality, this came from one brother’s love for another brother. Seeing the center up in his brother’s behalf, it’s an unbelievable thought.
Craig Biggio
Stem cell research holds out the promise of finding cures and treatments for a wide range of diseases.
Tom Allen
But today the quickest way to save your bottom line is to cut off research.
Amar Bose
There are a lot of hardcore ‘Napoleon’ fans, and they do the research and find photos of what I look like when I’m not ‘Kip-ified.’ Those fans recognize me. It happens maybe once a week, where someone will come up to me and be, like, ‘Dude, you’re Kip.’ And I’m, like, ‘Yeah, my name’s Aaron.’
Aaron Ruell
I think George just nailed the whole thing, the whole time period, the whole look and feel of what that newsroom was like. I did a lot of research for the role and believe me, it’s all pretty genuine, down to the very last cigarette butt.
David Strathairn
I don’t think the alternative to Yale is jail by any means. On the other hand, there is a mass of research that does show that there are real advantages to your subsequent career in going to selective institutions.
Derek Bok
We started giving presentations at practitioner conferences in 1986, and since then all of our derivatives research has been stimulated by contact with practitioners.
John Hull
I allowed the scriptwriter to come to my parties for research and it’s a good thing he did otherwise I don’t think Personal Services would’ve been so good.
Cynthia Payne
Graphology is another in a long list of quack substitutes for hard work. It is appealing to those who are impatient with such troublesome matters as research, evidence analysis, reasoning, logic, and hypothesis testing.
Robert Todd Carroll
Postwar U.S. was the world’s leader in science and technology. The investment in science research was staggering.
Siddhartha Mukherjee
I want to learn how to pick locks, swordfight, throw pottery – it’s all research. It’s like the curious person’s version of James Bond’s license to kill. I’ve got a license to learn.
Patrick Rothfuss
When it comes to the reason why we have nightmares, we’re still debating that. It’s a new area of research, nightmares. And the way I like to think about it is, our brain – we have stress during the day and our brain needs to learn to process this stress.
Shelby Harris
Molecular collision dynamics has been a wonderful area of research for all practitioners. This is especially true for those who were following the footsteps of pioneers and leaders of the field twenty years ago.
Yuan T. Lee
My judgment is that research in ‘Star Wars’ is going to fail, and I believe this so strongly that I’m willing to stake my professional reputation on this. I don’t believe anybody is going to build this thing.
Dave Parnas
Originally when we talked about language disorder it was a catastrophic language disorder. It’s substantial, and from a treatment standpoint it’s okay to keep diluting that term, but from a research standpoint we need to be much more precise. I wish somebody would take up the mantle of just that particular task.
Darold Treffert
I try to research or make up for myself what happened in any character’s life. From when he was born until the first page of the script. I fill in the blanks.
Viggo Mortensen
No research without action, no action without research.
Kurt Lewin
Basically, the way you get into any role is just doing research on the type of character you’re playing.
Theo Rossi
At the time when I was conducting my research there was no known method for taking the guinea pig’s temperature. I demonstrated a technique which is now widely used.
Charles Jules Henry Nicole
Research by the Keller Fay Group finds that only 7 percent of word-of-mouth happens online.
If the history of science teaches us anything, it is that what conquers our ignorance is research, not giving up and attributing our ignorance to the miraculous work of a creator.
Jerry A. Coyne
The American Cancer Society tried to ruin my research foundation.
Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
Already, viral contamination offers an initial response to the question of the downside of electronic circuits, but another area of research beckons the area of ecological pollution. The pollution not only of air, water, and other substances, but also the unperceived pollution of distances.
Paul Virilio
I did a lot of research on villains, and guys who start behaving nefariously didn’t start out as bad people. My research indicates that all of these people were scorned and hurt by love. Darth Vader didn’t start off as a bad guy. He was a good guy. Only when Natalie Portman betrayed him, did he go to the dark side.
Shawn Hatosy
I rarely plan my research; it plans me.
Max Perutz
Focus group research has created a composite No-Man who resembles no-one anyone has ever met.
Cathy Lewis
I’ve gone on a research expedition in the Atlantic Ocean before. I was sick for the entire week after that.
Boyan Slat
During my six years with them Dr Garnet Davey (subsequently Research Director) constantly supported me and, I have no doubt, fought many battles on my behalf to keep the initially controversial programme going.
James Black
Industry looks at research and development for energy efficiency, lowering material costs, so on and so forth.
Jamshyd Godrej
If our society continues to support basic research on how living organisms function, it is likely that my great grandchildren will be spared the agony of losing family members to most types of cancer.
Paul D. Boyer
I gained a lot of confidence after ‘IP Man’ as being a true actor. I went on to tackle what it is an actor is supposed to do before a film. Do a lot of research, get into the character. That’s what I did with ‘Dragon.’
Donnie Yen
Gun control advocates used to claim that more guns meant more crime. Research demonstrated, though, that more guns meant less crime. As the criminology argument faded, gun control advocates began arguing guns were a public health problem.
Steven Milloy
You don’t market-research a novel; you really are writing it for yourself. It’s a hobby, in many ways. The problem becomes what you do when you’re confronted by criticism. You just don’t listen to it.
Bret Easton Ellis
Biology is far from understanding exactly how a single cell develops into a baby, but research suggests that human development can ultimately be explained in terms of biochemistry and molecular biology. Most scientists would make a similar statement about evolution.
Kenneth R. Miller
I do a lot of research, I try to think about how it relates to music and I just do a ton of drawing. It’s much easier to work your ideas out that way.
Gerard Way
I think I’m too lazy a writer to do something like historical fiction. You have to do so much research. I just write what I know.
Sarah Dessen
I do as much research as is physically possible when I’m playing a real person, be they alive or dead.
Natalie Dormer
Advances in science and medical research and public health policies have meant that life expectancy for Australians is one of the highest in the world.
Julie Bishop
Every time I copy something, I can draw it for the rest of my life. But research is so painful – I mean just opening up a magazine looking for a picture of a car or looking out the window looking for a car is just hard!
Jaime Hernandez
Research has shown that the best way to be happy is to make each day happy.
Deepak Chopra
Anyone who ever spoke to me would know I would never say the words ‘get hitched’ nxt time do ur research.
Lady Starlight
The Middle East Media Research Institute has spent decades detailing the diseased messages emanating from Palestinian TV and textbooks, instructing children in the glories of suicide terrorism against innocent Israelis.
John Podhoretz
[Research] suggests that what we think of as free will is largely an illusion: much of the time, we are simply operating on automatic pilot, and the way we think and act – and how well we think and act on the spur of the moment – are a lot more susceptible to outside influences than we realize.
Malcolm Gladwell
Embryonic stem cell research is at the leading edge of a series of moral hazards.
George W. Bush
If you steal from one author it’s plagiarism; if you steal from many it’s research.
Wilson Mizner
I pursue through my research on speed and on my study of the organisation of the revolution of the means of transportation.
Paul Virilio
I’m doing research for a large comic book on the Beat Generation guys – Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac and those guys.
Harvey Pekar
If it is impossible to judge merit and guilt in the field of natural science, then it is not possible in any field, and historical research becomes an idle, empty activity.
Justus von Liebig
I could name about a dozen paths, and you’d like to have a whole bunch of research on all those paths, and then, eventually, at least four to five companies with really significant financing try and get to big scale, going down and really trying to prove it out.
Bill Gates
Competitive people, especially in sports, want to learn about everything. So when you’re interested in something, you become a bit obsessive. You start to research it and ask questions about it, and before you know it, you have a serious hobby because of how you’re programmed.
C. J. McCollum
I always begin with a source of inspiration that comes from nature. The story comes from my research, volunteering, and meeting the people involved in that story world. I am an intuitive writer and an image, sound, experience can all inspire a scene or a plot twist!
Mary Alice Monroe
Contemporary research shows that happy people are more altruistic, more productive, more helpful, more likable, more creative, more resilient, more interested in others, friendlier, and healthier. Happy people make better friends, colleagues, and citizens.
Gretchen Rubin
No matter how counter-intuitive it may seem, basic research has proven over and over to be the lifeline of practical advances in medicine.
Arthur Kornberg
I spoke to friends that have panic attacks, and I spoke to a doctor who has panic attacks, himself. I also did a bit of research into them. It seemed like everyone’s version of a panic attack had slightly different physical things. So, I decided to choose my own physical things.
Holliday Grainger
Heritage will remain, first and foremost, a research institute dedicated to impeccable research and data-driven policy analysis.
Jim DeMint
All good research-whether for science or for a book-is a form of obsession.
Mary Roach
When I saw the embryo, I suddenly realized there was such a small difference between it and my daughters. I thought, we can’t keep destroying embryos for our research. There must be another way.
Shinya Yamanaka
I’m a high-functioning sociopath, do your research.
Benedict Cumberbatch
Here I was into astronomy, and here into anthropology, and there I go into geology. It was much more fun to be able to research and write about whatever I wanted to.
Octavia Butler
The scholar’s greatest weakness: calling procrastination research.
Stephen King
For me, when working on a film or play or television show, everything for me starts with the screenplay and I am devoted to that and that is what I work from. Any research I do or any preparation I do on my own is all ultimately in service of that.
James Spader
In scientific subjects, the natural remedy for dogmatism has been found in research.
Ronald Fisher
I do like the research part of writing, I must admit.
C. J. Box
Ninety percent of the research comes first. I mostly blunder around reading stuff and talking to smart people until an idea batters or oozes its way through to my narrative brain.
Scott Westerfeld
I was trying to capture this man’s [Idi Amin] energy, and I did a lot of research in studying him. I tried to capture his ‘Warrior King’ energy inside of me as much as possible.
Forest Whitaker
There’s not much value to us attacking Chinese systems. We might take a few computers offline. We might take a factory offline. We might steal secrets from a university research programs, and even something high-tech. But how much more does the United States spend on research and development than China does?
Edward Snowden
The majority of the research I do is archaeological research, but to me, as a professor, the most important thing is to encourage and mentor students.
Sarah Parcak
There are many cases of these algebras which may obviously be combined into natural classes, but the consideration of this portion of the subject will be reserved to subsequent researches.
Benjamin Peirce
I’ve never found kicks to the groin particularly funny, although recent work in the genre of the buddy movie suggests audience research must prove me wrong.
Roger Ebert
During my stint in IT, I worked and used the free time to browse the net for research on cinema. In the evenings, I did theatre. Had I not been successful, I would have gone back to my IT job. It was my back up plan.
Rakshit Shetty
We must work to ensure that the Nevada Cancer Institute continues to receive the dollars necessary to make it a vibrant source of research and clinical assistance for cancer victims throughout the state of Nevada and the nation.
Jon Porter
As a religious priest I find it a very enriching experience to do my scientific research.
George Coyne
My favorite moment of the whole thing was when John Belushi suggested that I get a hold of all the blues records I could so I could research the music.
Steve Cropper
The great thing about using the past is that it gives you the most colossal freedom to invent. The research is necessary, of course, but no one writes a novel to dramatically illustrate what everybody already knows.
Peter Carey
Make sure to be well informed before accepting the challenge of a commission – check out that you have a source of reference readily available.
Richard Brown
The only protection as a historian is to institute a process of research and writing that minimizes the possibility of error. And that I have tried to do, aided by modern technology, which enables me, having long since moved beyond longhand, to use a computer for both organizing and taking notes.
Doris Kearns Goodwin
The value of the television network is partly tradition, serving as a navigation device and as a brand. Research shows that people do know and understand ABC as a brand, like Disney.
Anne Sweeney
One of the things that I’ve been doing recently in my scientific research is to ask this question: Is the universe actually capable of performing things like digital computations?
Seth Lloyd
Skunk works differed from advanced research groups in that they were more than just product development groups. They had direct interaction with customers and controlled a sales channel which allowed them to negotiate their own deals with customers.
Steve Blank
Chess is difficult, it demands work, serious reflection and zealous research.
Wilhelm Steinitz
Nokia and Research in Motion needed a modern operating system. They could have bought Palm or Android before Google did, but they didn’t. Today, it’s probably too late, and at the time they would have been criticized for overpaying, but as they say – shift happens.
Marc Andreessen
I’ve had many failures in terms of technological… business… and even research failures. I really believe that entrepreneurship is about being able to face failure, manage failure and succeed after failing.
Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw
He does all research now, but he put me on some medication, Zoloft, and, I tell you what, a lot of people have had pros and cons about it, but it was my wonder drug.
Tanya Tucker
We conclude that, simultaneously with the organization of the colleges, there should be at Santa Cruz an organization by disciplines, whose units would have a voice in appointments and promotions, in course of programs, and in the allocation of funds for research.
Abraham Robinson
I talked to ex-wives of musicians of the ’70s for research. They’re the funniest people in the world, yet there is this sad, beautiful thing in their eyes that says they’ve seen more than they could ever possibly tell you
Kate Hudson
Most of my ideas are based on the latest research on productivity, performance and mental mastery – that’s why so many iconic companies bring me in to help them grow and win.
Robin S. Sharma
If I go out into nature, into the unknown, to the fringes of knowledge, everything seems mixed up and contradictory, illogical, and incoherent. This is what research does; it smooths out contradictions and makes things simple, logical, and coherent.
Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
The scale of time for a politician runs between one primary and the next, and in Israel, this means two to three years because elections almost never take place once every four years as stipulated by law. The timetable for a system of research is completely different.
Aaron Ciechanover
Writing nonfiction is more like sculpture, a matter of shaping the research into the finished thing.
Joan Didion
To do suc cessful research, you don’t need to know everything, you just, need to know one thing that isn’t known.
Arthur Leonard Schawlow
I was trying to see if I could produce an episode – completely write it and research it and record it and edit it – all by myself in a week.
Karina Longworth
Pre-planning is essential. Research, research, research. If you are going to do a portrait, know as much as you can about the person beforehand. The web makes this very easy.
Peter Menzel
The physics of undergraduate text-books is 90% true; the contents of the primary research journals of physics is 90% false.
John Ziman
The research says that being successful doesn’t automatically make you happier, but being happier – being more positive – makes you more successful.
Shawn Achor
In my research, all roads led back to Oscar. It’s definitely in a way trying to understand the truly English element to glam-rock. It really does not come from American culture.
Todd Haynes
Take all the courses in your curriculum. Do the research. Ask questions. Find someone doing what you are interested in! Be curious!
Katherine Johnson
My ambition was to bring to bear on medicine a chemical approach. I did that by chemical manipulation of viruses and chemical ways of thinking in biomedical research.
Jonas Salk
My analyses and conclusions differ diametrically from those of the Southern Research Institute/National Cancer Institute report wherein it is concluded that amygdalin ‘does not possess activity in the Lewis lung carcinoma system.’. My analysis of the data is that it is overwhelmingly positive.
Dean Burk
A revolutionary career does not lead to banquets and honorary titles, interesting research and professorial wages. It leads to misery, disgrace, ingratitude, prison and a voyage into the unknown, illuminated by only an almost superhuman belief.
Max Horkheimer
The notion that every well educated person would have a mastery of at least the basic elements of the humanities, sciences, and social sciences is a far cry from the specialized education that most students today receive, particularly in the research universities.
Joseph Stiglitz
To be honest, I don’t usually do very much research, especially if I’m working with a director who also wrote the screenplay. They’ve usually done a tonne of research. And they’ll tell you about it from their perspective which is better than doing your own research.
Christina Ricci
Usually, if you have a new idea, you very rarely break through to anything like recognizable development or implementation of that idea the first time around – it takes two or three goes for the research community to return to the topic.
Martin Fleischmann
A persistent and age-old instinct makes us want to wander
Into regions yet untrod
And read what is still unread
In the manuscripts of God.
Willis R. Whitney
Internet’s been down most of the day [at work]. Doing research by just asking everyone what we remember to be true. What could possibly go wrong?
Rachel Maddow
America is a melting pot for all different groups of people, historically. And it’s rare that the story of all of these people will be told in the history books. So I always felt I had to find out my history for myself and research my roots.
I bring other constituencies – I also have ties to minority communities. And obviously, to the world of world-class research universities. So I can bring some constituencies that I’m used to working with.
Donna Shalala
I served as Dean until 1974, when I stepped down to return to full time teaching and research.
Frederick Reines
There’s been some research in cognitive science, I’m told, that discloses that there have always been perhaps 10 to 15 percent of people who are, as Pascal puts it, so made that they cannot believe. To us, when people talk about faith, it’s white noise.
Christopher Hitchens
I wanted to be a marine biologist my whole life until I graduated high school. And even now, I’m still like, ‘Maybe I’ll just quit the biz and go to Santa Cruz and study marine biology and have my own research center in the Bahamas.’ Yeah, I’m sure it would be just that smooth.
Cobie Smulders
My goal was to develop into an independent research scientist studying clinical problems at the laboratory bench, but I felt that postgraduate residency training in internal medicine was necessary.
Peter Agre
All the research shows that being married, with all its ups and downs, is by far the most effective way of making young men law-abiding and giving them a sense of purpose and self-worth.
Ferdinand Mount
There are many alternatives to embryonic stem cell research, alternatives with great potential. We need to support these and oppose creating life for the sole purpose of destroying it.
Ernest Istook
As strange as this may sound, I very seldom read fiction. Because my novels require so much research, almost everything I read is non – fiction – histories, biographies, translations of ancient texts.
Dan Brown
Teaching needs an ecosystem that supports evidence-based practice. It will need better systems to disseminate the results of research more widely, but also a better understanding of research, so that teachers can be critical consumers of evidence.
Ben Goldacre
The 20-G Centrifuge is our largest facility certified for use by humans. Its capabilities make it a unique NASA resource and a very versatile research tool that is ideal for developing health-maintenance activities for astronauts.
Jeff Smith
I did a research assignment on life in the Middle Ages only last year. I found the era fascinating, all that chivalry and court romance. But I never pictured anything as poor as this village. This is the pits. There’s no romance here, definitely no chivary. And it stinks–of sweat and smoke and sewage.
Marianne Curley
If you do your research on hot springs all over the world, they’re usually places of peace. People, even in warring nations and so forth, they’ll go and live in peace together around the hot springs, which were always considered medicinal. I firmly believe in water therapy.
Larry Hagman
