Text Quotes
My list of basic tools is a partial answer to the question about what has changed: Over the past few years, large numbers of programmers have come to depend on elaborate tools to interface code with systems facilities  (Large Numbers Quotes) We have received credible reports that show a clear and consistent pattern: entire villages are looted, burned down and sometimes bombed. Large numbers of civilians have been killed and scores of women and children have been abducted, raped and tortured  (Large Numbers Quotes) I suppose I can live with missing decimals, missing floors to tall buildings, and floors that are named instead of numbered.

Also, large numbers can be a drawback, making it difficult to lose one's anonymity  (Large Numbers Quotes) It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets  (Large Numbers Quotes) The trouble with integers is that we have examined only the very small ones. Maybe all the exciting stuff happens at really big numbers, ones we can’t even begin to think about in any very definite way.

Our brains did not evolve to help us grasp really large numbers or to look at things in a hundred thousand dimensions  (Large Numbers Quotes) Stage charm guarantees in advance an actor’s hold on the audience, it helps him to carry over to large numbers of people his creative purposes. It enhances his roles and his art. Yet it is of utmost importance that he use this precious gift with prudence, wisdom, and modesty. It is a great shame when he does not realize this and goes on to exploit, to play on his ability to charm  (Large Numbers Quotes) Four billion people on this earth, but my imagination is still the same. It’s bad with large numbers. It’s still taken by particularity. It flits in the dark like a flashlight, illuminating only random faces while all the rest go blindly by, never coming to mind and never really missed... I can’t tell you how much I pass over in silence  (Large Numbers Quotes) What we’re going to see is the emergence of the lone wolf rather than the planning of large numbers of people to carry out large attacks... Explosives are getting more sophisticated  (Large Numbers Quotes) We know the laws of trial and error, of large numbers and probabilities. We know that these laws are part of the mathematical and mechanical fabric of the universe, and that they are also at play in biological processes. But, in the name of the experimental method and out of our poor knowledge, are we really entitled to claim that everything happens by chance, to the exclusion of all other possibilities?  (Large Numbers Quotes) A news conference is a device by which the establishment keeps large numbers of reporters from covering the news every place else  (Large Numbers Quotes) For most of history, war has been a more or less functional institution, providing benefits for those societies that were good at it, although the cost in money, in lives, and in suffering was always significant. Only in the past century have large numbers of people begun to question the basic assumption of civilized societies that war is inevitable and often useful  (Large Numbers Quotes) Zero invites imagination, but small numbers invite questions about whether large numbers will ever materialize  (Large Numbers Quotes) At a time when threats to the physical environment have never been greater, it may be tempting to believe that people need to be mounting the barricades rather than asking abstract questions about the human place in nature. Yet without confronting such questions, it will be hard to know which barricades to mount, and harder still to persuade large numbers of people to mount them with us. To protect the nature that is all around us, we must think long and hard about the nature we carry inside our heads  (Large Numbers Quotes) Something has gone badly wrong with our culture. We’ve created a culture where really large numbers of the people around us can’t bear to be present in their daily lives. They need to medicate themselves to get through their day  (Large Numbers Quotes) Large numbers of people are broken from the notion that the system is working for people, that the system is just or humane or peaceful  (Large Numbers Quotes) Let us remember the large numbers of citizens who, day in and day out, through acts of volunteerism large and small, bring hope to so many of the world’s disadvantaged. Let us ensure that this wonderful resource, available in abundance to every nation, is recognized and supported as it works towards a more prosperous and peaceful world  (Large Numbers Quotes) The world is going mad in mutual extermination, and murder, considered as a crime when committed individually, becomes a virtue when it is committed by large numbers.
