[The Value For Which P=0.05, Or 1 In 20, Is 1.96 Or Nearly 2; It Is Convenient To Take This Point As A Limit In Judging Whether A Deviation Ought To Be Considered Significant Or Not. Deviations Exceeding Twice The Standard Deviation Are Thus Formally Regarded As Significant. Using This Criterion We Should Be Led To Follow Up A False Indication Only Once In 22 Trials, Even If The Statistics Were The Only Guide Available. Small Effects Will Still Escape Notice If The Data Are Insufficiently Numerous To Bring Them Out, But No Lowering Of The Standard Of Significance Would Meet This Difficulty.]

"The Doctor closed his eyes as the razor claws reached out through the rain, waiting for the killer blow. It never came. He opened one eye cautiously. The creature was staring at its claws, turning them this way and that. It looked down at the Doctor. ‘I think I chipped a nail. The Doctor blinked. ‘Im sorry? ‘A nail. Look. It held out a claw. ‘And that head. Do you think its going to be fattening? You never know with foreign food, do you?"

Thomas C Oden Quotes

"If God absolutely and pretemporally decrees that particular persons shall be saved and others damned, apart from any cooperation of human freedom, then God cannot in any sense intend that all shall be saved, as 1 Timothy 4:10 declares. The promise of glory is conditional on grace being received by faith active in love."

Quotes About Marijuana

"My letters seeking a job, though truthful, diminished the full truth. Face would blanch if the facts had been complete: "Dear Sir," I thought. "Do you have a position for a journeyman burglar, con man, forger and car thief; also with experience as armed robber, pimp, card cheat and several other things. I smoked marijuana at twelve (in the 40s) and shot heroin at sixteen. I have no experience with LSD and methedrine. They came to popularity since my imprisonment. Ive buggered pretty young boys and feminine homosexuals (but only when locked up away from women). In the idiom of jails, prisons and gutters (some plush gutters) Im a motherfucker! Not literally, for I dont remember my mother. In my world the term, used as I used it, is a boast of being hell on wheels, outrageously unpredictable, a virtuoso of crime. Of course by being a motherfucker in that world Im a piece of garbage in yours. Do you have a job?" - Author: Edward Bunker

Quotes About Scent Of A Woman

"A dingy emblem on the door depicted a little boy peeing into a pot. The rest of the bar was equally drab and tasteless. Dim bulbs behind red-tasseled lamp shades barely illuminated each of a dozen maroon vinyl booths, which marched along one wall toward the murky front windows. Chipped Formica tables anchored the booths in place. Opposite the row of booths was a long, scarred wooden bar with uncomfortable-looking stools. Behind the bar, sitting on glass shelves in front of a cloudy mirror, were endless rows of bottles, each looking as forlorn as the folks for whom they waited.He caught the strong odors of liquor and tobacco smoke, and the weaker scents of cleaning chemicals and vomit. In one of the booths , two heads bobbed with the movement of mug-clenching fists. A scrawny bartender with droopy eyelids picked his teeth with a swizzle stick and chatted quietly with a woman seated at the bar. Otherwise the bar was empty." - Author: Robert Liparulo

Quotes About Greed And Family

"All who are not lunatics are agreed about certain things. That it is better to be alive than dead, better to be adequately fed than starved, better to be free than a slave. Many people desire those things only for themselves and their friends; they are quite content that their enemies should suffer. These people can be refuted by science: mankind has become so much one family that we cannot insure our own prosperity except by insuring that of everyone else. If you wish to be happy yourself, you must resign yourself to seeing others also happy." - Author: Bertrand Russell

Quotes About Leaving Imprints

"Hed been too late for Sin. Hed been too weak for Lou. Hed been too young for his dad. Theyd all lived and loved and fallen, one by one, leaving deeper imprints on his soul each time. He couldnt change their deaths nor could he change that Sin was now in the same category as Lou and his father. People who he would have done anything for, lost to him in situations where that anything had not been enough." - Author: Ais

Quotes About Avid

"The late Mr. David Hume, in his posthumous works, places the powers of generation much above those of our boasted reason; and adds, that reason can only make a machine, as a clock or a ship, but the power of generation makes the maker of the machine; ... he concludes, that the world itself might have been generated, rather than created ; that is, it might have been gradually produced from very small beginnings, increasing by the activity of its inherent principles, rather than by a sudden evolution of the whole by the Almighty fiat." - Author: David Hume
