Author: A.P.
2. "Change is one of the scariest things in the world and yet it is also one of those variables of human existence that no one can avoid."
Author: Aberjhani
3. "Sexist grammar burns into the brains of little girls and young women a message that the male is the norm, the standard, the central figure beside which we are all deviants, the marginal, the dependent variables. It lays the foundation for androcentric thinking, and leaves men safe in their solipsistic tunnel-vision."
Author: Adrienne Rich
4. "The choices we're working with here are a block universe, where past, present and future all coexist simultaneously and everything has already happened; chaos, where anything can happen and nothing can be predicted because we can't know all the variables; and a Christian universe in which God made everything and it's all here for a purpose but we have free will anyway."
Author: Audrey Niffenegger
5. "Every job is a blessing. Everyone has to take into account what is available. Are you paying rent, who do you get to work with? There are a lot of variables in the job. What I'm drawn to is things that I don't completely understand maybe, and want to get a better feel for it."
Author: Ben Foster

Author: Blair Underwood
8. "There are only patterns, patterns on top of patterns, patterns that affect other patterns. Patterns hidden by patterns. Patterns within patterns. If you watch close, history does nothing but repeat itself. What we call chaos is just patterns we haven't recognized. What we call random is just patterns we can't decipher. what we can't understand we call nonsense. What we can't read we call gibberish.There is no free will. There are no variables."
Author: Chuck Palahniuk
9. "Who I am is not the same minute to minute or day to day. There are far too many variables for that to ever be true, for me, or for anyone."
Author: Dan Pearce
10. "Does religious conviction provide a powerful reason for killing? Undeniably it often does. It also often provides the sole compelling reason for refusing to kill, or for being merciful, or for seeking peace; only the profoundest ignorance of history could prevent one from recognizing this. For the truth is that religion and irreligion are cultural variables, but killing is a human constant."
Author: David Bentley Hart
11. "Study after study confirms that even when you control for variables like profession, education, hours worked, age, marital status, and children, men still are compensated substantially more - even in professions, like nursing, dominated by women. No wonder there's a gender gap."
Author: Dee Dee Myers
12. "Undefined and NaN are not constants. They are global variables, and you can change their values. That should not be possible, and yet it is. Don't do it."
Author: Douglas Crockford
13. "I'm glad I don't have to make a living farming. Too much hard work. Too many variables you don't have control over, like, is it going to rain? All I can say is, god bless the real farmers out there."
Author: Fuzzy Zoeller
14. "I've tried a few times to depart from what I know I can do, and I've failed. I've tried to work outside the studio, but it introduces too many variables that I can't control. I'm really quite narrow, you know."
Author: Irving Penn

Author: Janet Yellen
17. "Investment bubbles and high animal spirits do not materialize out of thin air. They need extremely favorable economic fundamentals together with free and easy, cheap credit, and they need it for at least two or three years. Importantly, they also need serial pleasant surprises in such critical variables as global GNP growth."
Author: Jeremy Grantham
18. "In mathematics, in place of characters, you have variables or unknowns. If I'm trying to plot a theorem, I try to imagine these variables interacting with each other. The boundary of their interaction is the theorem."
Author: Manil Suri
19. "Podría presentarme como es debido pero, la verdad, no es necesario. Pronto me conocerás bien, todo depende de una compleja combinación de variables. Por ahora basta con decir que, tarde o temprano, apareceré ante ti con la mayor cordialidad. Tomaré tu alma en mis manos, un color se posará sobre mi hombro y te llevaré conmigo con suma delicadeza."
Author: Markus Zusak
20. "I could introduce myself properly, but it's not really necessary. You will know me well enough and soon enough, depending on a diverse range of variables.

I will carry you gently away."
Author: Markus Zusak
21. "High among the unpredictable variables that endanger the survival of worthy buildings are the vagaries of taste."
Author: Martin Filler
22. "Science manipulates things and gives up living in them. It makes its own limited models of things; operating upon these indices or variables to effect whatever transformations are permitted by their definition, it comes face to face with the real world only at rare intervals. Science is and always will be that admirably active, ingenious, and bold way of thinking whose fundamental bias is to treat everything as though it were an object-in-general - as though it meant nothing to us and yet was predestined for our own use."
Author: Maurice Merleau Ponty
23. "Most of you will have heard the maxim "correlation does not imply causation." Just because two variables have a statistical relationship with each other does not mean that one is responsible for the other. For instance, ice cream sales and forest fires are correlated because both occur more often in the summer heat. But there is no causation; you don't light a patch of the Montana brush on fire when you buy a pint of Haagan-Dazs."
Author: Nate Silver
24. "A friend of ours encountered this problem with his home-built computer long ago. He wrote a BIOS that used a magic value in a particular memory location to determine whether a reset was a cold reboot or a warm reboot. After a while the machine refused to boot after power-up because the memory had learned the magic value, and the boot process therefore treated every reset as a warm reboot. As this did not initialize the proper variables, the boot process failed.The solution in his case was to swap some memory chips around, scrambling the magic value that the SRAM had learned. For us, it was a lesson to remember: memory retains more data than you think."
Author: Niels Ferguson
25. "After over a century of one of the deepest blood feuds in the history of inhuman warfare, peace had finally descended on the sleepy coastal town of Beach Haven, New York. The unstable element of calm, however, is that it can retain its current form only when the variables remain relatively constant."
Author: Phil Wohl
26. "Situational variables can exert powerful influences over human behavior, more so that we recognize or acknowledge."
Author: Philip Zimbardo
27. "The more you watch users carefully and listen to them articulate their intentions, motivations, and thought processes, the more you realize that their individual reactions to Web pages are based on so many variables that attempts to describe users in terms of one-dimensional likes and dislikes are futile and counter-productive. Good design, on the other hand, takes this complexity into account."
Author: Steve Krug
28. "If biologists have ignored self-organization, it is not because self-ordering is not pervasive and profound. It is because we biologists have yet to understand how to think about systems governed simultaneously by two sources of order, Yet who seeing the snowflake, who seeing simple lipid molecules cast adrift in water forming themselves into cell-like hollow lipid vesicles, who seeing the potential for the crystallization of life in swarms of reacting molecules, who seeing the stunning order for free in networks linking tens upon tens of thousands of variables, can fail to entertain a central thought: if ever we are to attain a final theory in biology, we will surely, surely have to understand the commingling of self-organization and selection. We will have to see that we are the natural expressions of a deeper order. Ultimately, we will discover in our creation myth that we are expected after all."
Author: Stuart A. Kauffman
29. "We're never gonna understand women. They're way too complex. You've got too many variables to consider. PMS, bad hair days, miscellaneous mood swings . . . there's no way to tell what's causing their attitude. - Mike"
Author: Susane Colasanti
30. "It is in adolescence that most of us grasp that life--our own life--is a problem to be solved, that a set of personal unknowns must now be factored together with the frightening variables of experience. The future suddenly appears--it is the space upon which the answers will be inscribed."
Author: Sven Birkerts
31. "If there are four equations and only three variables, and no one of the equations is derivable from the others by algebraic manipulation then there is another variable missing."
Author: Talcott Parsons
32. "Since September,I sat one seat behind Anna in algebra.Passed papers to her every day.Studied for tons of tests together.Though it often seemed impossible, Eventually,We always found the unknown for X.But not this time.This equationBounces against my brain.And sneers at all attempted answers.I know I'll re-examine the variables,And reanalyze the unknowns, maybe forever. ButIt won't matter.Because, Anna-I know I'll never figure out Y.Y you didn't want to live-And Y I never noticed."
Author: Terri Fields
33. "All variables are independent."
Author: Thomas Pynchon
34. "Relative income uses two variables: the dollar and time, usually hours."
Author: Timothy Ferriss
35. "That said, ID does not qualify as science because it gives us nothing to test or measure. Science requires replicable tests involving measurable variables."
Author: Tony Snow
36. "I look for an interesting and often times, fresh character. Something different that what is done all the time or than I've done recently. I look at who is directing. Those two variables as well as a third, which is the content and the quality of the screenplay. I look at the arcs of the scenes and characters and relationships."
Author: William Baldwin

Author: William S. Wilson
38. "I remain fundamentally optimistic aboutWall Street as a marketplace and as a vehicle for wealth creation. Itsfuture will rightly depend on several variables, chief among thembeing human choices; whether they be rationally, emotionally, subjectivelyor objectively made. Financial engineering taught us that ifit could be quantified, it could be qualified. We learned about howto use leverage and have abused that knowledge for a myriad ofreasons. We became practitioners of the transaction-based model, but forgot that long before the abacus there was trust and integrity,anchors of relationship-based models common with Middle East andAsian markets. It goes back to a handshake, the first and enduringexample of mutual consensus."
