Famous quotes containing the word events:

    All strange and terrible events are welcome,
    But comforts we despise.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The prime lesson the social sciences can learn from the natural sciences is just this: that it is necessary to press on to find the positive conditions under which desired events take place, and that these can be just as scientifically investigated as can instances of negative correlation. This problem is beyond relativity.
    Ruth Benedict (1887–1948)
