135605. In every area of the world where there is earthquake risk, there are still many buildings of this type; it is very frustrating to try to get rid of them. – Charles Francis Richter

135606. If one introduces the concept of energy of an earthquake then that is a theoretically derived quantity. – Charles Francis Richter

135607. I was lucky because logarithmic plots are a device of the devil. – Charles Francis Richter

135608. I usually point out that most loss of life and property has been due to the collapse of antiquated and unsafe structures, mostly of brick and other masonry. – Charles Francis Richter

135609. I suggested that we might compare earthquakes in terms of the measured amplitudes recorded at these stations, with an appropriate correction for distance. – Charles Francis Richter

135610. I repeatedly have to correct this belief. In a sense, magnitude involves steps of 10 because every increase of one magnitude represents a tenfold amplification of the ground motion. But there is no ‘scale of 10′ in the sense of an upper limit. – Charles Francis Richter

135611. From here, it becomes an engineering problem; the engineer considers the ground motion that will occur and evaluates the requirements of the proposed structure in the light of the local foundation conditions. – Charles Francis Richter

135612. For example, some stars put out large amounts of energy in the infrared part of the spectrum, so that this can produce a different relative magnitude rating than using light energy from the middle of the spectrum. – Charles Francis Richter

135613. Emphasis was usually put on the horizontal acceleration factor, for the simple reason that ordinary structures have a built-in safety factor for the vertical component; that is, gravity. – Charles Francis Richter

135614. By moving them vertically, a representative mean curve could be formed, and individual events were then characterized by individual logarithmic differences from the standard curve. – Charles Francis Richter

135615. As seismologists gained more experience from earthquake records, it became obvious that the problem could not be reduced to a single peak acceleration. In fact, a full frequency of vibrations occurs. – Charles Francis Richter

135616. If the assumptions used in calculating energy are changed, then this seriously affects the final result, even though the same body of data might be used. – Charles Francis Richter

135617. Don’t wait for extraordinary circumstance to do good; try to use ordinary situations. – Charles Richter

135618. Why not a space flower? Why do we always expect metal ships? – W. D. Richter

135619. Of course no one thought of anything except of attacking the enemy. It lies in the instinct of every German to rush at the enemy wherever he meets him, particularly if he meets hostile cavalry. – Manfred von Richthofen

135620. We convinced him quickly that the possibility of war was absolutely nil and continued our festivity. On the next day we were ordered to take the field. – Manfred von Richthofen

135621. There were sometimes from forty to sixty English machines, but unfortunately the Germans were often in the minority. With them quality was more important than quantity. – Manfred von Richthofen

135622. The English had hit upon a splendid joke. They intended to catch me or to bring me down. – Manfred von Richthofen

135623. All the papers contained nothing but fantastic stories about the war. However, for several months we had been accustomed to war talk. We had so often packed our service trunks that the whole thing had become tedious. – Manfred von Richthofen

135624. Of course, with the increasing number of aeroplanes one gains increased opportunities for shooting down one’s enemies, but at the same time, the possibility of being shot down one’s self increases. – Manfred von Richthofen

135625. Now I am within thirty yards of him. He must fall. The gun pours out its stream of lead. Then it jams. Then it reopens fire. That jam almost saved his life. – Manfred von Richthofen

135626. My dear Excellency! I have not gone to war to collect cheese and eggs, but for another purpose. – Manfred von Richthofen

135627. It is a pity that my collection of trophies contains not a single Russian. – Manfred von Richthofen

135628. In the heat of the Russian summer a sleeping car is the most horrible instrument of martyrdom imaginable. – Manfred von Richthofen

135629. I never was good at learning things. I did just enough work to pass. In my opinion it would have been wrong to do more than was just sufficient, so I worked as little as possible. – Manfred von Richthofen

135630. I honored the fallen enemy by placing a stone on his beautiful grave. – Manfred von Richthofen

135631. I have had an experience which might perhaps be described as being shot down. At the same time, I call shot down only when one falls down. Today I got into trouble but I escaped with a whole skin. – Manfred von Richthofen

135632. Everything depends on whether we have for opponents those French tricksters or those daring rascals, the English. I prefer the English. Frequently their daring can only be described as stupidity. In their eyes it may be pluck and daring. – Manfred von Richthofen

135633. As a little boy of eleven I entered the Cadet Corps. I was not particularly eager to become a Cadet, but my father wished it. So my wishes were not consulted. – Manfred von Richthofen

135634. It is better that one’s customers come to one’s shop than to have to look for them abroad. – Manfred von Richthofen

135687. I’ve never had a chance to sit down and enjoy what’s happened – I’ve been too panicked about the next move. So I took some time out. I thought either I do this now or in 10 years’ time I’ll end up in the Priory. – Adam Rickitt

135688. I’m the first to admit I’ve had a sheltered life. I grew up in the country and went to a boarding school. It was all just part of the business – be nice to everyone and all that. – Adam Rickitt

135821. To a poet the mere making of a poem can seem to solve the problem of truth, but only a problem of art is solved in poetry. – Laura Riding

135822. I feel as though I have lived many lives, experienced the heights and depths of each and like the waves of the ocean, never known rest. Throughout the years, I have looked always for the unusual, for the wonderful, for the mysteries at the heart of life. – Leni Riefenstahl

135823. I set about seeking a thread, a theme, a style, in the realm of legend. Something that might allow me to give free rein to my juvenile sense of romanticism and the beautiful image. – Leni Riefenstahl

135824. I want to see, that’s all. This is my life. I want to see. – Leni Riefenstahl

135825. Reality doesn’t interest me. – Leni Riefenstahl

135826. The applause was so loud and insistent that I had to respond with several encores. I was numb with happiness, when it was over, I knew that this alone must be my life and my world. – Leni Riefenstahl

135827. Through my optimism I naturally prefer and capture the beauty in life. – Leni Riefenstahl

135828. I am fascinated by what is beautiful, strong, healthy, what is living. I seek harmony. – Leni Riefenstahl

135829. America is not only big and rich, it is mysterious; and its capacity for the humorous or ironical concealment of its interests matches that of the legendary inscrutable Chinese. – David Riesman

135830. If you want to get out of medicine the fullest enjoyment, be students all your lives. – David Riesman

135831. The idea that men are created free and equal is both true and misleading: men are created different; they lose their social freedom and their individual autonomy in seeking to become like each other. – David Riesman

135832. Why, I ask, isn’t it possible that advertising as a whole is a fantastic fraud, presenting an image of America taken seriously by no one, least of all by the advertising men who create it? – David Riesman

135833. Here we are 17 years later. Those agencies never did come through. – Jeremy Rifkin

135834. If your corn has a herbicide-tolerant gene, it means you can spray your herbicides and kill the weeds; you won’t kill your corn because it’s producing a gene that makes it tolerant of the herbicide. – Jeremy Rifkin

135835. I know quite a few farmers all over the United States who have tried this and have said the opposite, that they have to use more herbicides, not less. The same holds true with BT. – Jeremy Rifkin

135836. I wanted to make sure that this be the first scientific and technology revolution in history in which the public thoroughly discussed all the potential benefits and all the potential harms, in advance of the technology coming online and running its course. – Jeremy Rifkin

135837. Back in the mid-1980s, congressional hearings were held after we brought this litigation, and held up the first experiment. At that time, I went in front of Congress, along with the major agencies involved with this. – Jeremy Rifkin

135838. Back in 1983, the United States government approved the release of the first genetically modified organism. In this case, it was a bacteria that prevents frost on food crops. – Jeremy Rifkin

135839. A refuge is supposed to prevent what? The genes from flowing out of sight? This refuge idea won’t stop insects from moving across boundaries. That’s absurd. – Jeremy Rifkin

135840. Europe will not accept genetically modified foods. It doesn’t make any difference in the final analysis what Brussels does, what Washington does, or what the World Trade Organization does. – Jeremy Rifkin

135841. What the public needs to understand is that these new technologies, especially in recombinant DNA technology, allow scientists to bypass biological boundaries altogether. – Jeremy Rifkin

135842. The electronic media introduced this idea to the larger audience very, very quickly. We spent years and years and years meeting with activists all over Europe to lay the groundwork for a political response, as we did here. – Jeremy Rifkin

135843. What I’m suggesting to you is that this could be a renaissance. We may be on the cusp of a future which could provide a tremendous leap forward for humanity. – Jeremy Rifkin

135844. When we seed millions of acres of land with these plants, what happens to foraging birds, to insects, to microbes, to the other animals, when they come in contact and digest plants that are producing materials ranging from plastics to vaccines to pharmaceutical products? – Jeremy Rifkin

135845. We now have an opportunity, though, to do something we didn’t do in the industrial age, and that is to get a leg up on this, to bring the public in quickly, to have an informed debate. – Jeremy Rifkin

135846. We are entering a new phase in human history – one in which fewer and fewer workers will be needed to produce the goods and services for the global population. – Jeremy Rifkin

135847. We are already producing enough food to feed the world. We already have technology in place that allows us to produce more than we can find a market for. – Jeremy Rifkin

135848. They’re now turning those seeds into intellectual property, so they have a virtual lock on the seeds upon which we all depend for our food and survival. – Jeremy Rifkin

135849. The public should know that the liability issues here have yet to be resolved, or even raised. If you’re a farmer and you’re growing a genetically engineering food crop, those genes are going to flow to the other farm. – Jeremy Rifkin

135850. The position I took at the time was that we hadn’t really examined any of the potential environmental consequences of introducing genetically modified organisms. – Jeremy Rifkin

135851. The interesting thing is, while we die of diseases of affluence from eating all these fatty meats, our poor brethren in the developing world die of diseases of poverty, because the land is not used now to grow food grain for their families. – Jeremy Rifkin

135852. You can eliminate, for example, a Brazil nut gene if you know that it will create an allergenic effect. – Jeremy Rifkin

135853. The industry’s not stupid. The industry knows that if those foods are labeled “genetically engineered,” the public will shy away and won’t take them. – Jeremy Rifkin

135854. What’s different here is that we have now technologies that allow these life science companies to bypass classical breeding. That’s what makes it both powerful and exciting. – Jeremy Rifkin

135855. The antitrust litigation currently in the federal courts in the U.S. against Monsanto will be the test case in the life sciences, just as the Microsoft case was the test case in the information sciences. – Jeremy Rifkin

135856. The American public is not aware that there might be potential allergenic and toxic reactions. With regular food, at least people know which foods they have an allergy to. – Jeremy Rifkin

135857. The 10 largest antitrust law firms in the United States have gone into the federal courts charging Monsanto with creating a global conspiracy in violation of the antitrust laws, to control the global market in seeds. – Jeremy Rifkin

135858. So my attorneys brought litigation in the U.S. federal courts. The judge ruled in our favor. – Jeremy Rifkin

135859. One thing I’ve learned over these last 30 or 40 years is that people make history. There’s no fait accompli to any of this. – Jeremy Rifkin

135860. Many of the mainstream agricultural scientists, especially at the agricultural schools, but at all of our major universities, are tied into all sorts of contractual relationships and consulting relationships with the life science companies. – Jeremy Rifkin

135861. Many of the genetically modified foods will be safe, I’m sure. Will most of them be safe? Nobody knows. – Jeremy Rifkin

135862. It may be that everything the life science companies are telling us will turn out to be right, and there’s no problem here whatsoever. That defies logic. – Jeremy Rifkin

135863. In this country, the health concerns and the environmental concerns are as deep as in Europe. All the surveys show that. But here, we didn’t have the cultural dimension. This is a fast-food culture. – Jeremy Rifkin

135864. The insurance companies aren’t covering that. Should Monsanto be liable for these losses? Should the state government? Who’s going to cover the losses? The fact is, here’s an industry with no long-term liability in place. – Jeremy Rifkin

135865. We were making the first step out of the age of chemistry and physics, and into the age of biology. – Jeremy Rifkin

135866. So it really does have a sort of bittersweet quality. Kids like to have adventures and to believe they can fly, but there’s also that fear about people leaving you. – Cathy Rigby

135867. Seeing the show is like a visit to the fountain of youth for parents and the children. – Cathy Rigby

135868. I’ll talk to kids afterward and somebody will always say, ‘I’ll leave my bedroom window open for you. – Cathy Rigby

135869. Yes, well, you are quite camp, so I guess that he could see the point of you. – Diana Rigg

135870. Maybe at this stage in my career, it’s from that younger generation that I have most to learn. – Diana Rigg

135871. I made a bit of a stink. At the time, it was considered very bad form. – Diana Rigg

135872. I hope there’s a tinge of disgrace about me. Hopefully, there’s one good scandal left in me yet. – Diana Rigg

135873. They do say that the profession gets increasingly difficult, but my career seems to have been inside out. I’m playing the biggest parts now that I’m older. That’s probably right, because I wasn’t ready for them before. – Diana Rigg

135874. If I can’t play for big money, I play for a little money. And if I can’t play for a little money, I stay in bed that day. – Bobby Riggs

135875. We want to keep the actual Civil War experience alive. – Bobby Riggs

135876. If I am to be a chauvinist pig, I want to be the number one pig. – Bobby Riggs

135877. Billie and I did wonders for women’s tennis. They owe me a piece of their checks. – Bobby Riggs

135878. I never eat salad. I make sure I don’t put a lot of junk into my system, but I hate vegetables! – Rihanna

135879. When I am putting looks together, I dare myself to make something work. I always look for the most interesting silhouette or something that’s a little off, but I have to figure it out. I have to make it me. I think that’s the thrill in fashion. – Rihanna

135880. People think, because we’re young, we aren’t complex, but that’s not true. We deal with life and love and broken hearts in the same way a woman a few years older might. – Rihanna

135881. Over the holidays, and even during filming, I realized that I actually like my body, even if it’s not perfect according to the book. I just feel sexy. For the first time, I don’t want to get rid of the curves. I just want to tone it up. My body is comfortable, and it’s not unhealthy, so I’m going to rock with it. – Rihanna

135882. Music is in my DNA! – Rihanna

135883. It’s every girl’s dream to be a cover girl! – Rihanna

135884. When I was fourteen and first started going out, I always wanted to be the opposite of everyone else. So I would go to the club in a polo T-shirt and pants and sneakers and a hat on backward, just so I would not be dressed like other girls. – Rihanna

135885. It is one thing to record an album but it’s a huge difference when people play it and listen to it and embrace it the way that I do. It has always been my dream to get my music out to the world and have people hear it. – Rihanna

135886. When I cut my hair, the whole sound changed, my style changed. – Rihanna

135887. I love reading people. I really enjoy watching, observing, and being able to figure out a person, the reason they wore that dress, the reason they smell the way they do. – Rihanna

135888. I like to be creative. – Rihanna

135889. I hate going to the gym and doing it the old-fashioned way. I hate anything that’s too straightforward, too routine, too familiar. I get bored really, really quickly. – Rihanna

135890. I am a child but I have to think and act like a woman, this business forces you to. – Rihanna

135891. I always keep my guard up with guys and I guess that can get in the way sometimes. I can make them go through hell. – Rihanna

135892. Dancing was always part of my culture growing up in Barbados. When I shot my 1st video I worked really hard with my choreographer to perfect the routines. – Rihanna

135893. If someone is right for you, you’ll know it. – Rihanna

135895. The more I live, the more I think that humor is the saving sense. – Jacob August Riis

135896. I’d look at one of my stonecutters hammering away at the rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet, at the hundred and first blow it would split in two, and I knew it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before. – Jacob August Riis

135897. Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before. – Jacob August Riis

135898. When nothing seems to help, I go look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. – Jacob Riis

135902. The opponents of my budget propose taking $200 million out of our classrooms and instead spending it on a larger school employee pay raise. Our focus should be on making sure our children come first. – Bob Riley

135903. One person can make a difference. In fact, it’s not only possible for one person to make a difference, it’s essential that one person makes a difference. And believe it or not, that person is you. – Bob Riley

135904. Nothing is worse, or more of a breach of the social contract between citizen and state, than for government officials, bureaucrats and agencies to waste the money entrusted to them by the people they serve. – Bob Riley

135909. The success of our economy shouldn’t determine the success of our schools. – Bob Riley

135910. There is no longer time for statements like “if only” or “we can’t.” We must and we will succeed. The only question now is how and when. I believe the time is now. – Bob Riley

135911. Tolerating evil leads only to more evil. And when good people stand by and do nothing while wickedness reigns, their communities will be consumed. – Bob Riley

135915. No two wars are ever the same. Some are just, some are unjust, but the basic commonality shared between them all is that young men and women heeded a call to service, overcame their fear, and fought for their side. – Bob Riley

135916. When money follows results – we will get more results for our money. – Bob Riley

135917. Half a world away nations that once lived under oppression and tyranny are now budding democracies due in large part to America ‘s leadership and the sacrifices of our military. – Bob Riley

135922. Hard times don’t create heroes. It is during the hard times when the ‘hero’ within us is revealed. – Bob Riley

135923. However, before we make the mistake of patting ourselves on the back, let’s remember: government does not create jobs. It only helps create the conditions that make jobs more or less likely. The real credit for our economic renewal belongs to the people of Alabama . – Bob Riley

135924. I ask you: turn a deaf ear to the special interests. Let politics stand down for a while. don’t waste anytime thinking about future elections until we’ve done our jobs here. – Bob Riley

135925. I have long believed that sacrifice is the pinnacle of patriotism. – Bob Riley

135926. I hope we never get to the point that we put ourselves in Jesus’ place. But when I read the New Testament basically, we get three mandates: to love God, to love each other, and to take care of the least among us. And I think this is at least a step in the right direction. – Bob Riley

135927. If we are going to save this country, if we are going to reestablish that belief in God, it’s up to us. If we don’t do it, who will? – Bob Riley

135928. In a time of tight budgets, difficult choices have to be made. We must make sure our very limited resources are spent on priorities. I believe we should have no higher priority than investing in our children’s classrooms and in their future. – Bob Riley

135929. Ladies and gentlemen: There can be no greater investment in Alabama’s future than an investment in education. – Bob Riley

135930. God looked down on this country because this country was founded on the rock and that rock was our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And when the storms came and the rains came, the rock, it did not move. But over the last 15 or 20 years, something began to erode. – Bob Riley

135932. I think this lack of a center has something to do with the loss of certainties that Christianity had to offer. – Bridget Riley

135933. There was a time when meanings were focused and reality could be fixed; when that sort of belief disappeared, things became uncertain and open to interpretation. – Bridget Riley

135934. Painting is, I think, inevitably an archaic activity and one that depends on spiritual values. – Bridget Riley

135968. Don’t let other people tell you what you want. – Pat Riley

135969. Each Warrior wants to leave the mark of his will, his signature, on important acts he touches. This is not the voice of ego but of the human spirit, rising up and declaring that it has something to contribute to the solution of the hardest problems, no matter how vexing! – Pat Riley

135980. Out of doing all that experimentation with sound I decided I wanted to do it with live musicians. To take repetition, take music fragments and make it live. Musicians would be able to play it and create this kind of abstract fabric of sound. – Terry Riley

135981. Music can also be a sensual pleasure, like eating food or sex. But its highest vibration for me is that point of taking us to a real understanding of something in our nature which we can very rarely get at. It is a spiritual state of oneness. – Terry Riley

135987. Essentially my contribution was to introduce repetition into Western music as the main ingredient without any melody over it, without anything just repeated patterns, musical patterns. – Terry Riley

135988. Acceleration is finite, I think according to some laws of physics. – Terry Riley

135989. Well I guess my music came to prominence around one piece called ‘In C’ which I wrote in 1964 at that time it was called ‘The Global Villages for Symphonic Pieces’, because it was a piece built out of 53 simple patterns and the structure was new to music at that time. – Terry Riley
