examinations

Look at the number of cop shows and lawyer shows and forensics shows, ... I think there could be room for two quite different examinations of the same political office.More [08/20/2006 12:08:00]
Great success in examinations does naturally not as a rule go with originality of thought.More [01/08/2008 12:01:00]
Wile E. Coyote:
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Wile E. Coyote, genius. I am not selling anything nor am I working my way through college, so let's get down to basics: you are a rabbit and I am going to eat you for supper. Now don't try to get away, I am more muscular, more cunning, faster and larger than you are, and I am a genius, while you could hardly pass the entrance examinations to kindergarten, so I'll give you the customary two minutes to say your prayers.



Bugs Bunny:
I'm sorry, Mac, the lady of the house ain't home. And besides, we mailed you people a check last week.



Wile E. Coyote:
Why do they always want to do it the hard way?

And finally I begin to have such a success in my examinations that I found myself in a career you see.More [07/14/2011 06:07:25]
The grounding in natural sciences which I obtained in the course of my medical studies, including preliminary examinations in botany, zoology, physics, and chemistry, was to become decisive in determining the trend of my literary work.More [08/08/2011 05:08:55]
I came about something of what no sportsman can be insured of. This is a trauma. On Thursday evening, when I was in the sparring at the Pound-4-Pound Gym in LA, I injured my right knee in the eighth round. After careful examinations it turned out to be a trauma of the meniscus in the right knee.More [09/13/2011 10:09:35]

I was very inspired by Les Blank's film 'Burden of Dreams.' I think what's unique about his film and the two I've made is that they're close examinations of filmmakers and how their own emotional experiences reflect in the material they're rendering, and vice versa - how that material sometimes colors their own lives.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Examinations are formidable even to the best prepared, for the greatest fool may ask more than the wisest man can answer.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In examinations, the foolish ask questions the wise cannot answer.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I was studying to be an architect, I wasn't plotting to join the movies. Films were just another career option. I took acting up with the same schoolgirl enthusiasm I had for examinations. Acting is a job and I take it very seriously.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
[The report] shows that 2,032 medication errors associated with radiology procedures were voluntarily reported by 315 hospitals and clinics during the five-year period from 2000 to 2004. This number averages approximately 406 errors per year. Viewed in the context of the hundreds of millions of radiology examinations performed in the United States each year, the number of reported errors is small.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Drugs are about dulling perception, about addiction and about behavioral repetition...What *psychedelics* are about is pattern- dissolving experiences of an extraordinarily high or different awareness. They are the exact opposite of drugs. They promote questioning , they promote consciousness, they promote value examinations, they promote the reconstruction of behavioral patterns.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Merely to stuff the child with a lot of information, making him pass examinations, is the most unintelligent form of education.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Examinations, sir, are pure humbug from beginning to end. If a man is a gentleman, he knows quite enough, and if he is not a gentleman, whatever he knows is bad for him.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

A man's true greatness lies in the consciousness of an honest purpose in life, founded on a just estimate of himself and everything else, on frequent self-examinations, and a steady obedience to the rule which he knows to be right, without troubling himself about what others may think or say, or whether they do or do not that which he thinks and says and does.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Though the academic authorities are actually proud of conducting everything by means of Examinations, they seldom indulge in what religious people used to descibe as Self-Examination. The consequence is that the modern State has educated its citizens in a series of ephemeral fads.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have gone through so many examinations of what a hero is, between the World War II stuff and the astronaut stuff.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
And finally I begin to have such a success in my examinations that I found myself in a career you see.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Be patient and sympathetic with the type of mind that cuts a poor figure in examinations. It may, in the long examination which life sets us, come out in the end in better shape than the glib and ready reproducer, its passions being deeper, its purposes more worthy, its combining power less commonplace, and its total mental output consequently more important.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Great success in examinations does naturally not as a rule go with originality of thought.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When one reads hurriedly and nervously, having in mind written tests and examinations, one's brain becomes encumbered with a lot of bric-a-brac for which there seems to be little use.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
On examinations: Das Wissen ist der Tad der Forschung. Knowledge is the death of research. Nernst's motto.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Students should not feel as if they had missed the boat if they failed examinations and should be presented with more opportunities to further their studies.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Why do Britons keep stabbing each other in August? Why do seaside hotels burn down in August? Why do children disappear in August, examinations get easier and Heathrow become the world's worst airport? The answer lies not in reality but in appearance. News editors abhor a vacuum. Half an hour of airtime and 10 pages of news must be filled each day, whatever the weather.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What really annoys me are the ones who write to say, I am doing your book for my final examinations and could you please tell me what the meaning of it is. I find it just so staggering--that you're supposed to explain the meaning of your book to some total stranger! If I knew what the meanings of my books were, I wouldn't have bothered to write them.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My wish is that all all women age 20 and above perform monthly breast self-examinations.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The rites of passage in the academic world are arcane and, in their own way, highly romantic, and the tensions and unplesantries of dissertations and final oral examinations are quickly forgotten in the wonderful moment of the sherry afterward, admission into a very old club, parties of celebration, doctoral gowns, academic rituals, and hearing for the first time "Dr.," rather than "Miss" Jamison.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We must be careful not to discourage our twelve-year-olds by making them waste the best years of their lives preparing for examinations.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To fix the thoughts by writing, and subject them to frequent examinations and reviews, is the best method of enabling the mind to detect its own sophisms, and keep it on guard against the fallacies which it practices on othersMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There are cases where examinations are admitted, namely, before the coroner, and before magistrates in cases of felony. That appears to me to go rather in support of the general rule than in destruction of it. Every exception that can be accounted for is so much a confirmation of the rule that it has become a maxim, Exceptio probat regulam.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Being a breast cancer survivor, as I like to call myself - it will be twenty years next year - I did it to make it possible for women to do regular self breast examinations. It's really important - and, it makes common sense: you know your body better than the doctor does who only sees you once a year, you know?More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I was trying to make them face their fears. Youth spends so much energy trying to forget them. There's the fear of failure in examinations, fear of sex, fear of not getting a job, fear of unpopularity, fear of appearing naïve. Youth discovers many bunkholes in which to hide when frightened. They are mostly unhealthy, none of them bombproof.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When I was three years old, I went to an orphanage, but because of the beatings, I ran away when I was five and lived alone by selling gum on the streets. For ten years, I lived like a fly. I was eventually able to graduate elementary and middle school through qualification examinations and the first thing that I ever liked was music.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One had to cram all this stuff into one's mind for the examinations, whether one liked it or not. This coercion had such a deterring effect on me that, after I had passed the final examination, I found the consideration of any scientific problems distasteful to me for an entire year.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Some failure in life is inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously, that you might as well not have lived at all. In which case you have failed by default. Failure gave me an inner security that I had never obtained by passing examinations. Failure taught me things that I could not have learned any other way. I discovered I had a strong will and more discipline than I had suspected.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Actually, most mathematics courses do not teach reasoning of any kind. Students are so baffled by the material that they are obliged to memorize in order to pass examinations.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In university courses we do exercises. Term papers, quizzes, final examinations are not meant for publication. We move through a course on Dostoevsky or Poe as we move through a mildly good cocktail party, picking up the good bits of food or conversation, bearing with the rest, going home when it comes to seem the reasonable thing to do. Art, at those moments when it feels most like art -- when we feel most alive, most alert, most triumphant -- is less like a cocktail party than a tank full of sharks.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Home is the first school for us all, a school with no fixed curriculum, no quality control, no examinations, no teacher trainingMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If we did not bring to the examinations of our instincts a knowledge of their comparative dignity we could never learn it from them.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I should have liked to be asked to say what I knew. They always tried to ask what I did not know. When I would have willingly displayed my knowledge, they sought to expose my ignorance. This sort of treatment had only one result: I did not do well in examinationsMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I do not remember having felt, as a boy, any passion for mathematics, and such notions as I may have had of the career of a mathematician were far from noble. I thought of mathematics in terms of examinations and scholarships: I wanted to beat other boys, and this seemed to be the way in which I could do so most decisively.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If you don't do any self-examinations or see a doctor ever, you'll live forever. That's how you do it. The diagnosis is what gets you. You just have a don't ask, don't tell policy with any and all bodily functions.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I wasn't good at examinations, but I went to a very good secondary school - Bolton-on-Dearne - with wonderful teachers, who taught me drama and encouraged me in every way.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When teachers are forced to teach to the test, students get bored and genuine education ceases, no matter what the test scores may say… The examination as a test of the past is of no value for increased learning ability. Like all external motivators, it can produce a short term effect, but examinations for the purpose of grading the past do not hook a student on learning for life.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Look at the number of cop shows and lawyer shows and forensics shows... I think there could be room for two quite different examinations of the same political office.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
