quote: Leading indicators have been strong the last few months, and that's telling us we're going to see very strong acceleration in first-quarter growth.

quote: I look at that as really good news for the market; you want something right in the sweet spot. We're just in a nice, smooth acceleration, and now people are starting to think that's likely to be sustained.

quote: While we expect market conditions to remain challenging, we...anticipate an acceleration in business in the second half to meet full year market expectations,

quote: Wage pressures seem to have subsided. However, ongoing solid growth and indications of price acceleration in certain segments of the economy could leave chief sleuth Greenspan with plenty of gum on his shoe.

quote: The acceleration is just mind-boggling.

quote: We're probably likely to see an acceleration in dollar weakness.

quote: Any architectural project we do takes at least four or five years, so increasingly there is a discrepancy between the acceleration of culture and the continuing slowness of architecture.

quote: We're about to see an acceleration in technological platforms that, for marketers, will be on a scale rivalled only by the arrival of color TV.

quote: The acceleration of the marketing process, the concentrating of manufacturing, greater diversification, increased international competition, have in turn speeded up product improvements, product innovations and new product introductions. The stakes are high, the failures costly.

quote: We were always taught to swing slow with good tempo. But you have to have some acceleration throughout the swing. I think that's where a lot of women go wrong. They should try to whack it a few times and see what happens.

quote: Acceleration is finite, I think, according to some laws of physics.

quote: ...the West's main weakness remains unchanged: it cannot grasp the fact that it is facing an acceleration in the unfolding of Soviet convergence strategy which is intended to procure the subservience of the West to Moscow under an ultimate Communist World Government.

quote: Music. A meaningless acceleration in the rhythm of celestial experience.

quote: There has been a vigorous acceleration of health, resource and education programs designed to advance the role of the American Indian in our society. Last Fall, for example, 91 percent of the Indian children between the ages of 6 and 18 on reservations were enrolled in school. This is a rise of 12 percent since 1953.

quote: Looking to the future I see in the further acceleration of science continuous jobs for our workers. Science will cure unemployment.

quote: It follows that acceleration in the rate of change will result in an increasing need for reorganization. Reorganization is usually feared, because it means disturbance of the status quo, a potential threat to peoples vested interests in their jobs, and an upset to established ways of doing things. For these reasons, needed reorganization is often deferred. With a resulting loss in effectiveness and increase in costs.

quote: I dread the inevitable acceleration of American world domination which will be the result of it all...Europe will no longer be Europe.

quote: Does the engineer ever predict the acceleration of a given body from a knowledge of its mass and of the forces acting upon it? Of course. Does the chemist ever measure the mass of an atom by measuring its acceleration in a given field of force? Yes. Does the physicist ever determine the strength of a field by measuring the acceleration of a known mass in that field? Certainly. Why then, should any one of these roles be singled out as the role of Newton's second law of motion? The fact is that it has a variety of roles.

quote: Generating ideas is not a problem. Incubation is. Acceleration is.

quote: All meaning alters with acceleration, because all patterns of personal and political interdependence change with any acceleration of information.

quote: At 42,000' in approximately level flight, a third cylinder was turned on. Acceleration was rapid and speed increased to .98 Mach. The needle of the machmeter fluctuated at this reading momentarily, then passed off the scale. Assuming that the off-scale reading remained linear, it is estimated that 1.05 Mach was attained at this time.

quote: A marathon is a like a roller coaster... You might toss your cookies, jump for joy, pass out, or have to close your eyes and just breathe. Even when it is going smooth, all of a sudden there can be a drop or even better, an acceleration. Hang on, stick to your plan, and enjoy every step of the way. I can't wait to do another....or maybe ten! Get after it!

quote: People who say they don't see the acceleration of innovation is a wilful blindness. We are innovation at a wonderful speed for the basic things we think everyone should get.

quote: Things are both getting better and getting worse. The madness is accelerating but an acceleration of the new consciousness is also coming in. However, this latter development is less apparent when you listen to the media. The media still mostly reflects what is happening in the sphere of the old consciousness.

quote: It is astonishing to realize that until Galileo performed his experiments on the acceleration of gravity in the early seventeenth century, nobody questioned Aristotle's falling balls. Nobody said, Show Me!
