Top Invalidates A Will Quotes

Invalidates A Will Quotes By Tom DeMarco

When a schedule is not met, those inclined to pass out blame are quick to point at the lowest-level workers; they reason that performance is the domain entirely of those who perform the work. They ask plaintively, "Why can't these guys ever meet their schedules?" The answer that the schedule might have been wrong in the first place only befuddles them. It's as though they believe there is no such thing as a bad schedule, only bad performances that resulted in missing the scheduled date. There is such a thing as a bad schedule. A bad schedule is one that sets a date that is subsequently missed. That's it. That's the beginning and the end of how a schedule should be judged. If the date is missed, the schedule was wrong. It doesn't matter why the date was missed. The purpose of the schedule was planning, not goal-setting. Work that is not performed according to a plan invalidates the plan. The missed schedule indicts the planners, not the workers. — Tom DeMarco

Invalidates A Will Quotes By Robert Greene

There is something I call social intelligence. You can do a lot in life on your own and you can do all kinds of stuff, but if you're really bad with people, if you're really naive or aggressive and push people away, if you don't know the political environment you're in, it invalidates all the things you know. You're not going to get anywhere. — Robert Greene

Invalidates A Will Quotes By Cynthia Ozick

Invention despoils observations, insinuation invalidates memory. A stewpot of bad habits, all of it - so that imaginative writers wind up, by and large, a shifty crew, sunk in distortion, misrepresentation, illusion, imposture, fakery. — Cynthia Ozick

Invalidates A Will Quotes By Ross Douthat

What he felt during his Spanish encounter with left-wing anti-Christianity was similar to his reactions to the anti-Christianity of the right. The "novelty and shock of the Nazis", Auden wrote, and the blitheness with which Hitler's acolytes dismissed Christianity "on the grounds that to love one's neighbor as oneself was a command fit only for effeminate weaklings", pushed him inexorably toward unavoidable questions. "If, as I am convinced, the Nazis are wrong and we are right, what is it that validates our values and invalidates theirs?" The answer to this question, he wrote later, was part of what "brought me back to the church. — Ross Douthat

Invalidates A Will Quotes By Hermann Broch

The irrational invalidates any meaning attached to it. — Hermann Broch

Invalidates A Will Quotes By Ayn Rand

The good, say the mystics of spirit, is God, a being whose only definition is that he is beyond man's power to conceive - a definition that invalidates man's consciousness and nullifies his concepts of existence. The good, say the mystics of muscle, is Society - a thing which they define as an organism that possesses no physical form, a super-being embodied in no one in particular and everyone in general except yourself ... The purpose of man's life, say both, is to become an abject zombie who serves a purpose he does not know, for reasons he is not to question. — Ayn Rand

Invalidates A Will Quotes By George Orwell

(This Side Idolatry), but it was a merely personal attack, concerned for the most part with Dickens's treatment of his wife. It dealt with incidents which not one in a thousand of Dickens's readers would ever hear about, and which no more invalidate his work than the second-best bed invalidates Hamlet. All that the book really demonstrated was that a writer's literary personality has little — George Orwell

Invalidates A Will Quotes By Louis L'Amour

I think it's time that we have a women's show about the West. The concentration has been on the men and the Indians. — Louis L'Amour

Invalidates A Will Quotes By Mark Helprin

Heavy blizzards start as a gentle and persistent snow. — Mark Helprin

Invalidates A Will Quotes By William J. Brennan Jr.

The principle inherent in the clause that prohibits pointless infliction of excessive punishment when less severe punishment can adequately achieve the same purposes invalidates the punishment. — William J. Brennan Jr.

Invalidates A Will Quotes By Ian McEwan

The beginning of conscious life was the end of illusion, the illusion of non-being, and the eruption of the real. The triumph of realism over magic, of is over seems. — Ian McEwan

Invalidates A Will Quotes By Lil' Wayne

Think I'm gettin' sick, I'm feelin' illegal/ And not having money is the root of all evil — Lil' Wayne

Invalidates A Will Quotes By Elizabeth Gilbert

Don't we have the right to not stop seeking until we get as close to the source of wonder as possible? Even if it means coming to India and kissing trees in the moonlight for awhile. — Elizabeth Gilbert

Invalidates A Will Quotes By China Mieville

So what's your alternative? people say, as if that's logic. We don't have to have an alternative, that's not how critique works. We may do, and if we do, you're welcome, but if we don't that no more invalidates our hate for this, for what is, than does that of a serf for her lord, her flail-backed insistence that this must end, whether or not she accompanies it with a blueprint for free wage labor. — China Mieville

Invalidates A Will Quotes By Cheryl McIntyre

Jesus, Hope. You have ruined me. I love you so much. — Cheryl McIntyre

Invalidates A Will Quotes By James P. Hogan

Invalidates A Will Quotes By Dietrich Bonhoeffer

In a world where success is the measure and justification of all things the figure of Him who was sentenced and crucified remains a stranger and is at best the object of pity. The world will allow itself to be subdued only by success. It is not ideas or opinions which decide, but deeds. Success alone justifies wrongs done ... With a frankness and off-handedness which no other earthly power could permit itself, history appeals in its own cause to the dictum that the end justifies the means ... The figure of the Crucified invalidates all thought that takes success for its standard. — Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Invalidates A Will Quotes By Philip Yancey

Indeed we are all in peril if the flawed messenger invalidates the message. — Philip Yancey
