### Famous quotes containing the words rate and/or effective:

“At this very moment,... the most frightful horrors are taking place in every corner of the world. People are being crushed, slashed, disembowelled, mangled; their dead bodies rot and their eyes decay with the rest. Screams of pain and fear go pulsing through the air at the *rate* of eleven hundred feet per second. After travelling for three seconds they are perfectly inaudible.

“[Madness] is the jail we could all end up in. And we know it. And watch our step. For a lifetime. We behave.

—Kate Millett (b. 1934)
