preferences

For myself I hold no preferences among flowers, so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous. Bricks to all greenhouses! Black thumb and cutworm to the potted plant!More [10/07/2011 10:10:27]
It's about understanding the patient's preferences and respecting them, ... ... If we do it wrong over the next four years, we'll live with the consequences for the next 30 years.More [11/23/2011 06:11:45]
I think it's best not to rely on an individual physician. Individual doctors have their specialties, their biases, their preferences for certain kinds of treatment and getting multiple opinions is the only way you can create a sense of trust in that particular course of action. It's a ways of checking and balancing the subjectivity or the prejudices of an individual physician.More [09/30/2012 05:09:20]
PDF annual reports are principally useful only for printing, and sometimes for offline reference for experienced users. But they are not usable for online browsing, which is how most individual investors want to view online annual report information. Firms that post their reports only in PDF ignore the needs and preferences of most of their report users and put people off reading the report.More [07/21/2013 09:07:46]
The Internet will win because it is relentless. Like a cannibal, it even turns on it own. Though early portals like Prodigy and AOL once benefited from their first-mover status, competitors surpassed them as technology and consumer preferences changed.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
For myself I hold no preferences among flowers, so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous. Bricks to all greenhouses! Black thumb and cutworm to the potted plant!More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Whoever is admitted or sought for, in company, upon any other account than that of his merit and manners, is never respected there, but only made use of. We will have such-a-one, for he sings prettily; we will invite such-a-one to a ball, for he dances well; we will have such-a-one at supper, for he is always joking and laughing; we will ask another because he plays deep at all games, or because he can drink a great deal. These are all vilifying distinctions, mortifying preferences, and exclude all ideas of esteem and More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It's about understanding the patient's preferences and respecting them, ... ... If we do it wrong over the next four years, we'll live with the consequences for the next 30 years.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
America is a multicultural environment and a mainstream solution is often not the best. Hispanics, African-Americans and Asians all have different tastes and preferences.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The United States, like other U.N. members and especially as a Security Council member, will keep its cards close to the vest in terms of its preferences until very late in the process.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Every business traveler has a unique set of preferences when they take technology on the road. We have developed advanced GPS solutions for every form factor so mobile professionals can enjoy precise location and navigation assistance on the hardware that suits their needs.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
They have ignored science, research and scholarly analysis in parks. They have ignored the preferences of the American people. We have little confidence that they will pay much attention to the comments currently being received from the public on the draft policies unless they are the comments they want to hear.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Nothing prevents Hill from continually modifying his complaint after suffering an adverse ruling on a particular allegation. Even if the state were to change its lethal injection protocol to accommodate Hill's preferences, prior to a next execution he could easily change his 'three-drug cocktail complaint.' ...More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have worked on PCs and on Macs and, while I have my preferences, I don't find it crippling to work on one rather than the other.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When the pressure comes, preferences give way while convictions hold firm.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't have acknowledged preferences of characters.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The inherent preferences of organizations are clarity, certainty and perfection. The inherent nature of human relationships involves ambiguity, uncertainty, and imperfection. How one honors, balances, and integrates the needs of both is the real trick of feedback.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
No, my work does not reflect my sexual preferences, it reflects the fact that I feel total freedom as an artist.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The radical novelty of modern science lies precisely in the rejection of the belief... that the forces which move the stars and atoms are contingent upon the preferences of the human heart.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The Internet will win because it is relentless. Like a cannibal, it even turns on it own. Though early portals like Prodigy and AOL once benefited from their first-mover status, competitors surpassed them as technology and consumer preferences changed.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The government, for example, has determined that black people (somehow) have fewer abilities than white people, and, so, must be given certain preferences. Anyone acquainted with both black and white people knows this assessment is not only absurd but monstrous. And yet it is the law.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The way is light and fluid for the man with
no preferences.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I still favor alternatives to governmental race-based preferences.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Democrats single out glaring examples of tax preferences or spending priorities that favor the wealthy and Republicans cry 'class warfare!'More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Popularity makes no law invulnerable to invalidation. Americans accept judicial supervision of their democracy - judicial review of popular but possibly unconstitutional statutes - because they know that if the Constitution is truly to constitute the nation, it must trump some majority preferences.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am puzzled that Conway Morris apparently doesn't grasp the equally strong (and inevitable) personal preferences embedded in his own view of life.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To be civilized is to be potentially master of all possible ideas, and that means that one has got beyond being shocked, although one preserves one's own moral aesthetic preferences.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In the end, color combinations come down to our personal preferences, which we must discover through observation and experiment.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Race and sexual preferences are two different things. One is a behavior-related and preference-related and one is something inherently - skin color, something obvious, that kind of stuff.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I think the American people should express their preferences, and we'll accept their choice.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Facebook has never been merely a social platform. Rather, it exploits our social interactions the way a Tupperware party does. Facebook does not exist to help us make friends, but to turn our network of connections, brand preferences and activities over time - our 'social graphs' - into money for others.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I believe that if you go and ask a chief executive of a Goldman Sachs or a BP, and they answer you honestly...they want monopolies, they want government subsidies, they want preferences - they're not interested in free markets.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Our preferences for stability and security blind us to the opportunities for adventure when they present themselves.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
They [human beings] are unwilling to gamble that God made those people who are skilled at rational argumentation uniquely virtuous. They protect themselves and others from cleverness by obscuring their preferences.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Upgrade your addictions to the status of preferences. Here's the distinction between an addiction and a preference:More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We don't always know what makes us happy. We know, instead, what we think SHOULD. We are baffled and confused when our attempts at happiness fail...We are mute when it comes to naming accurately our own preferences, delights, gifts, talents. The voice of our original self is often muffled, overwhelmed, even strangled, by the voices of other people's expectations. The tongue of the original self is the language of the heart.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
For future reference, Harry, it is raspberry...although of course, if I were a Death Eater, I would have been sure to research my own jam preferences before impersonating myself.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is a strong current in contemporary culture advocating ' holistic ' views as some sort of cure-all... Reductionism implies attention to a lower level while holistic implies attention to higher level. These are intertwined in any satisfactory description: and each entails some loss relative to our cognitive preferences, as well as some gain... there is no whole system without an interconnection of its parts and there is no whole system without an environment.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Nature does not always conform to our predispositions and preferences, to what we deem comfortable and easy to understand.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Capitalism is not only a better form of organizing human activity than any deliberate design, any attempt to organize it to satisfy particular preferences, to aim at what people regard as beautiful or pleasant order, but it is also the indispensable condition for just keeping that population alive which exists already in the world. I regard the preservation of what is known as the capitalist system, of the system of free markets and the private ownership of the means of production, as an essential condition of the veryMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What we call the market is really a democratic process involving millions, and in some markets billions, of people making personal decisions that express their preferences. When you hear someone say that he doesn't trust the market, and wants to replace it with government edicts, he's really calling for a switch from a democratic process to a totalitarian one.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Dining out is a vice, a dissipation of spirit punished by remorse. We eat, drink, and talk a little too much, abuse all our friends, belch out our literary preferences and are egged on by accomplices in the audience to acts of mental exhibitionism. Such evenings cannot fail to diminish those who take part in them. They end on Monkey Hill.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It's not worth comparing; Kara and SNSD are both Korean girl groups. I'm proud that Korean girl groups are being recognized in Japan Everyone has their preferences. There are people who like SNSD and there are people who like Kara.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Stereotypes are the mind's shorthand for dealing with complexities. They have two aspects: they are much blunter than reality; they are shaped to fit a man's preferences or prejudgments. Thus two principles are involved: differentiation or its lack, and biased preferential perception.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is, in any art, a tendency to turn one's own preferences into a monomaniac theory.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Trying to do good to people without God's help is no easier than making the sun shine at midnight. You discover that you've got to abandon all your own preferences, your own bright ideas, and guide souls along the road our Lord has marked out for them. You mustn't coerce them into some path of your own choosing.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Happiness happens when your consciousness is not dominated by addictions and demands - and you experience life as a parade of preferences.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century: Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others; Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected; Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it; Refusing to set aside trivial preferences; Neglecting development and refinement of the mind; Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If we demand things in worship that can't be in every culture, then we're demanding cultural preferences, not biblical.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The degree of customization possible through your Preferences screens is awesome.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Along with others, I have tried to pry economists away from narrow assumptions about self interest. Behavior is driven by a much richer set of values and preferences.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The assertion that 'culture' explains human variation will be taken seriously when there are reports of women war parties raiding villages to capture men as husbands, or of parent cloistering their sons but not their daughters to protect their sons' virtue, or when cultural distributions for preferences concerning physical attractiveness, earning power, relative age and so on show as many cultures with bias in one direction as in the other.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The rates of soda consumption in our poorest communities cannot be explained by individual consumer preferences alone, but rather are linked to broader issues of access and affordability of healthy foods in low-income neighborhoods, and to the marketing efforts of soda companies themselves.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A library represents the mind of its collector, his fancies and foibles, his strength and weakness, his prejudices and preferences. Particularly is this the case if, to the character of a collector, he adds - or tries to add - the qualities of a student who wishes to know the books and the lives of the men who wrote them. The friendships of his life, the phases of his growth, the vagaries of his mind, all are represented.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what's true.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is sometimes suggested that the [Nazi economic] recovery was a product of a specific fascist economic strategy, which distinguished it from the recovery efforts of other capitalist states. While few would disagree that the Nazi regime had a number of clear ideological preferences when it came to the economy, the policies pursued in 1933 had much in common with those adopted in other countries, and with the policies of the pre-Hitler governments.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But our preferences do not determine what's true.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You may concentrate on appearances all through the rest of your house, but in the bedroom comfort should be supreme. I think that bedrooms should also be very intimate rooms-they should express your personal preferences in every way...Of all the rooms in the house your bedroom is yours.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Well, the world is vastly counted in favour of men at every level - except if you live in a civilised country and you’re sort of educated and middle-class, because then you’re almost certainly junior in your relationship and in a state of permanent, crippled apology. Your preferences are routinely mocked. There’s a huge, unfortunate lack of respect for anything male.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Too often the result of affirmative action has been an artificial diversity that gives the appearance of parity between blacks and whites that has not yet been achieved in reality...Preferences tend to attack one form of discrimination with another...Affirmative action encourages a victim-focused identity, and sends the message that there is more power in our past suffering than in our present achievements.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
