Democratic foursomes don’t work in the ’70s like they did in the ’60s, when there were fewer musical directions.
Internet-centric companies have already begun changing the rules with binge-watching, flexible running times, fewer commercials, and crowd-sourced content. The brainpower – and just plain power – of the most valued tech firms will change things even more.
Every day, human beings are worth less. That’s the triumph of capitalism. The money gets made, and the fewer people we need to make that money.
I always say that bad women are fewer than men, but when you get one, they’re fascinating because they’re so rotten.
It will come as no surprise that I would count Nietzsche the perspectivist – he who questioned not only the possibility but the value of Truth – as the enemy. There will be even fewer surprises that I would reject the Dionysian Nietzsche, the celebrant of transgressive desire.
I think we as a country have definitely got to do better when it comes to housing people of all backgrounds. Not only can the less fortunate afford housing but fewer people of all kinds can afford it.
It seems that the most fearful people in our country are those who don’t travel and are metaphorically barricaded in America. If we all stayed home and built more walls and fewer bridges between us and the rest of the world, eventually we would have something to actually be fearful of.
We need more people to go into business and fewer wasting our lives becoming bureaucrats and civil servants.
All of the changes in publishing since 1960 are significant. There are far fewer publishers.

Had drugs been decriminalized, crack would never have been invented and there would today be fewer addicts… The ghettos would not be drug-and-crime-infested no-man’s lands… Colombia, Bolivia and Peru would not be suffering from narco-terror, and we would not be distorting our foreign policy because of it.
What if you love knowledge for its own sake, not necessarily as a blueprint to action? What if you wish there were more, not fewer reflective types in the world?
To make even fewer friends try talking about politics as much as you talk about yourself.
All my adult life, I have lived with Labour lies about tax cuts. Their cry is always the same. Tax cuts are impossible in a civilised society. They mean less revenue for the state, which means sacked teachers, unemployed doctors, fewer nurses. I am amazed anyone still takes such arrant twaddle seriously.
There are fewer and fewer roles that I haven‘t done already, or archetypes that I haven’t played, and to break out of that box, the most interesting stuff is television.
Meetings are a symptom of bad organization. The fewer meetings the better.
Bureaucratic advancement means fewer peers, more span of control, generally an increasing information-pump function, and increased distance from the actual implementation of whatever it is the organization does.
The Democrats‘ anti-business economic policies would mean less money and fewer jobs in America, which inevitably means fewer opportunities to go on vacation too.

We will never be able to control health care costs unless we challenge the over-emphasis on medical research, specialists and technology and put more emphasis on delivering good, everyday basic medicine to those who now have none.
When you go back to the above names it was a very much narrower situation – the alternatives were far fewer. Today there is much more competition for the ‘hero stakes‘! And if you think about all the alternatives you have today to spend your time on, the pool of heroes is much broader. It was very much less back then.
No matter who we are or where we live, deep inside we all feel incomplete. It’s like we have lost something and need to get it back. Just what that something is, most of us never find out. And of those who do, even fewer manage to go out and look for it.
I wish that more people were willing to turn down upfront money in exchange for doing things that are more original. Turning down a seven-figure check has a ripple effect on the budget, which has a ripple effect on the storytelling. The higher the budget gets, the fewer storytelling risks you’re able to take.
Sleep-deprived individuals also generate fewer and less accurate solutions to problems.
Hezbollah must stop this cowardly blending in among women and children. I heard they were making statements that they were proud of losing fewer armed men than civilians. It’s hard to see how they could be proud of such a situation.

The fewer rules a coach has, the fewer rules there are for players to break.
We’re against animal fighting and killing animals for fur…. We want Americans to eat fewer animals
Remember always, in painting as in eloquence, the greater your strength, the quieter will be your manner, and the fewer your words; and in painting, as in all the arts and acts of life the secret of high success will be found, not in a fretful and various excellence, but in a quiet singleness of justly chosen aim.
An invaluable little book…. What Makes a Terrorist uses standard tools of economics and statistical analysis to get at the truth about terrorism…. Krueger finds one familiar fact in all his numbers. Countries with fewer civil liberties tend to produce more terrorists.
Imagination in a poet is a faculty so wild and lawless that, like a high ranging spaniel, it must have clogs tied to it, lest it outrun the judgment. The great easiness of blank verse renders the poet too luxuriant. He is tempted to say many things which might better be omitted, or, at least shut up in fewer words.
Since far fewer people are recruited to serve in a voluntary military, the connection between America and its military is increasingly tenuous and less personal.
Tweeting has taught me the discipline to say more with fewer words.
Every human being has appetites difficult to control but far fewer have humility, gentleness, and an awareness of their weaknesses.
So many able historians have worked over seventeenth-century New England that one would think there was little left to be learned from the people who lived there – fewer than 100,000 at the end of the century. Seldom, apart perhaps from the Greeks and Romans, have so few been studied by so many.
Notions of property, value, ownership, and the nature of wealth itself are changing more fundamentally than at any time since the Sumerians first poked cuneiform into wet clay and called it stored grain … few people are aware of the enormity of this shift and fewer of them are lawyers or public officials.
If government were less important in our lives, politicians would have fewer goodies to trade. In return, we’d have more money and more freedom.
I had very supportive parents that made the way for me, even at a time when there were very few women – no women, really; maybe two or three women – and very few, fewer than that, African-American women heading in this direction, so there were very few people to look up to. You just had to have faith.
It seems like we’re getting fewer stops in California every year. It’s good because we’re exposing the sport to other parts of the country. But it’s not like it used to be, when we played for a hearty handshake, slept in vans and traveled up and down the coast from Santa Cruz to San Diego.
I’m a very wide reader. I read serious books and I read airplane, forgettable books. I never have fewer than four or five books beside my bed at night. I particularly enjoy reading about people who have gone through a personal growth.
One nation is to another what one individual is to another; with this melancholy distinction perhaps, that the former with fewer of the benevolent emotions than the latter, are under fewer restraints also from taking undue advantage of the indiscretions of each other.
I wish the country had fewer lawyers and more engineers.
We owe it to consumers to treat their dollars with respect and to double- and triple-check our assumptions about complex marketplaces rather than getting locked into a regulatory tunnel vision that will ultimately leave consumers with fewer, more expensive choices.
I like shorter jokes. I like fewer words. I think the more ideas there are the, the fewer words there should be.
We discovered that there are actually fewer companies actually buying data.

I had the luck of being in Madrid. They sign some of the best players in the world, and that really leaves fewer opportunities for young players.
Of the over 100,000 wildfires that happen in the U.S. each year, not a single one would get started without the fire triangle: Oxygen, heat and fuel. Fire needs all three to exist. It’s like the three branches of our government: Legislative, judicial and executive. The fewer there are, the safer we are.
Social Security and Medicare are necessary safety nets, but they are nearing insolvency as fewer pay in, more take out, and more take out more.
When I left, there were over 1 million fewer people on welfare in New York state than when I took office, replacing dependency with opportunity.

Sir,вЂ™ said Stephen, вЂI read novels with the utmost pertinacity. I look upon them–I look upon good novels–as a very valuable part of literature, conveying more exact and finely-distinguished knowledge of the human heart and mind than almost any other, with greater breadth and depth and fewer constraints.
I get in fewer arguments when I’m alone.
In working on any one problem, such as higher minimum wages, so many other issues come into play, such as some businesses possibly closing down, thus creating fewer jobs and more unemployment and incentivizing companies to import more goods from abroad, which leads to even less employment at home, and so on.
It’s not about how much you make: it’s about how good the quality is. You’ll be better off as a company making fewer things and concentrating on those and how you bring those to market… in a very less cluttered way, even though the marketplace is more cluttered.
In the quest for comparative advantage, investment will flow towards those countries that can offer more output for fewer emissions. Inaction will cost jobs. Action will support jobs.
Our problem wasnвЂ™t that it blew up and was impossible to scale, but there were some bad choices made. One of the biggest lessons timeВ after time was to focus. Do fewer things.
I always say to women, ‘Take advantage of the fact that you’re in the minority, don’t see it as a disadvantage. You’re that much more unique when there’s fewer of you.’

With fewer resources to share around more people, how can the poor have improved lifestyles?
There are so few guys who do action and do it well. Even fewer who are African-American. Even fewer who have classical-theater training. So a cat like me coming in, I’m bringing all of that to an action movie.
Our country regularly uses military force, but only a fraction of Americans serve in the military. This means fewer and fewer people have a direct link to the military, and yet it remains as important as ever that we have a rich understanding of what we are doing as a country.
With excessive digitisation, now, everyone is making films, which is good, but the makers think that they will quickly make films in digital and bag satellite rights but television channels buy satellite rights of notable films only. If we made fewer films a year, percentage of hits would be better.
To nurture the sort of relationships that will truly help propel you towards accomplishing great things, you need to forget transactional networking and focus on having in-depth conversations with fewer people about subjects you really care about.

Gossip is dying out because fewer and fewer people care to talk about anything besides themselves.
There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.
A lot of African wildlife is very big. If you’re protecting the big stuff, you’re usually protecting the small stuff, too. One of the main things we advocate for is for countries to set aside, even if it’s fewer places, really big places, so that you can have viable populations.
Why do other first world countries give children so many fewer vaccines than we do? Vaccines save lives, but might be harming some children. Is moderation such a terrible idea?

I have made more friends for American culture than the State Department. Certainly I have made fewer enemies, but that isn’t very difficult.
Professional creativity requires more than inspiration, talent, and discipline – it requires an endurance that few are aware of and even fewer have.
The best thing that could happen to motherhood already has. Fewer women are going into it.
In the occupation in Afghanistan, there are tragedies as well. It’s not as bad as in Iraq because there are fewer American troops. But, as I describe in the book, going out on patrol and coming into a village, the soldiers found a stash of documents and decided this was Taliban propaganda.
It is easier to study the ‘behavior‘ of rats than people, because rats are smaller and have fewer outside commitments. So modern psychology is mostly about rats
Hang (hang without fail, so the people see) no fewer than one hundred known kulaks, rich men, bloodsuckers.
Every feature has some maintenance cost, and having fewer features lets us focus on the ones we care about and make sure they work very well.
If you have the feeling of choice, if you feel free, you will be better off. And when I say better off I mean that if people feel they have control over their lives, they call in for fewer sick days from work. They have a lesser probability of having a heart attack or stroke. They live longer. They’re happier.
I’ve had no fewer than three young women on separate occasions come up to me at book signings and unzip their pants, turn around, and drop them to show me that they had ‘Bonnie lassie‘ tattooed across their rumpuses!
The fewer desires, the more peace.

The failure of women to have reached positions of leadership has been due in large part to social and professional discrimination. In the past, few women have tried, and even fewer have succeeded.
The government, for example, has determined that black people (somehow) have fewer abilities than white people, and, so, must be given certain preferences. Anyone acquainted with both black and white people knows this assessment is not only absurd but monstrous. And yet it is the law.
Americans are no less susceptible to disease, joblessness, and family changes than their peers in rich nations, but they are made more fragile by these crises. The country has a thinner safety net, fewer public goods, and less social insurance than other countries.
In a rising market, enough of your bad ideas will pay off so that you’ll never learn that you should have fewer ideas.
Fewer people than you might think seem to have truly enjoyed their formative education and, for those who did not, one theme in particular recurs: the breathtaking cruelty of children.

The fewer the words, the better the prayer.
If you’re receiving fewer assignments, this could be an indicator that there was a decision from upper management that you shouldn’t have as many responsibilities. Whether that means your employer has lost faith in you or that your job may be in jeopardy, this is a sign that you should start polishing up your resume.
The fewer species there are and the fewer species we know about, the fewer questions we even know to ask.
All photographs are about light. The great majority of photographs record light as a way of describing objects in space. A few photographs are less about objects and more about the space that contains them. Still fewer photographs are about light itself.
We cannot expect that everyone, to use the phrase of a decade ago, will talk sense to the American people. But we can hope that fewer people will listen to nonsense. And the notion that this Nation is headed for defeat through deficit, or that strength is but a matter of slogans, is nothing but just plain nonsense.
All of us would be better investors if we just made fewer decisions.
Here’s to the few who forgive what you do, and the fewer who don’t even care
It makes a good case that women in charge would mean fewer wars, a different management style and more embracing of other peoples views. But in the business and personal world, its not that women are better than men. Its that they bring different perspectives and skills.
There are fewer representations of black figures in the historical record.
There is also a marked global trend towards sustainable agriculture, building on traditional methods which use fewer chemical inputs, carefully manage soil and water resources, and work hand-in-hand with nature.
American critics of welfare statism are often surprised to learn that countries like West Germany, with a much more comprehensive welfare state and a statistically larger public sector, have fewer government employees per capita than the United States does.
Men who cannot exploit the co-operative benefits derived from institutions in modern knowledge economies are discriminated against by girls and so have fewer children
As machines take over the decision-making that saves lives, we are left with fewer chances to save lives later.
In investing, we intuitively think we should make a number of small bets. A blockbuster strategy is the opposite. It means making fewer huge investments. But it turns out to be safer.
Hmm, can I be obvious and say there is probably a double standard for male vs. female directors? Sadly, I think that’s actually the case. And it probably stems from the fact that there are proportionately so many fewer women directors than men ones that each project is perhaps more closely scrutinized for its content.
When I was trying to find work after drama school in London, it felt like the same actors always got the plum roles, especially in television. We have a smaller market place, vastly fewer drama-producing networks, and they seem to compete for the same established names for those projects.
If you have fewer teenagers having children, they could focus more on their vocational development.
When I took office in 2011, I made a commitment that the Office of Attorney General would find ways to do more while spending fewer taxpayer dollars.

Reason has so many forms that we do not know which to choose-Experiment has no fewer.

Fewer than half of all university professors publish as much as one article per year.
The world in many ways would be a much calmer and gentler place if women ruled. There would have been fewer children sacrificed to the gods of greed and power.
I think Ed Koch is the person most responsible for allowing AIDS to get out of control. It happened here first, on his watch. If he had done what any moral human being should have done in the beginning, and put out alarms, then a lot fewer people would have gotten sick.
In devoting more time and attention to fewer commitments, we can have a bigger impact on the things that matter most.
Well, of course, all of the statistics say there are fewer eligible black men in my circle. But I’ve never thought of it that way. I believe that if the right person came into my life that would have been terrific.

If we had less statemanship we could get along with fewer battleships.
If you really care about Facebook likes, don’t just post your stuff to Twitter and then rely on it being republished automatically to Facebook. In my sample size of one, Facebook penalizes you significantly for that and shows that content to far fewer people.
Has the center of gravity shifted such that all governments have greater powers and fewer restrictions than they ever had, and are empowered by technology in a way that no government ever was in the past?
I discovered about 150 dots is the minimum number of dots to make a specific recognizable person. You can make something that looks like a head, with fewer dots, but you won’t be able to give much information about who it is.
I don’t have any option. I’m not going to be less gay or more pretty. I can’t try to have less personality or fewer controversial opinions.
Credibility is a must. Think of all those bloggers that kill us with photos outside the shows – there will be a selection there, too. Not because some are less good, but those that do not impose a style will have fewer requests.
Not graduating high school on time leads to fewer chances of attending college and obtaining good paying jobs, and creates instead higher chances of incarceration and unemployment.
When Hispanics start businesses at two times the rate of the average population, it seems to me that fewer regulations and dictates from Washington will do more to encourage start-ups, hiring, and progress up the economic ladder.

I want to make sure more people – not fewer – have access to quality, affordable health care.
Bush has not read enough books to have a developed moral sense. The fewer books you read, the easier it is to become fundamental. In some ways my antiwar stand here is also a stand on anti-literacy. Someone should get G.W. into a reading program, get him to join a book club. Have him read Hamlet, King Lear.
Who would you rather be with: someone with more alternatives or someone with fewer?
People constantly face problems they’ve never seen before, and they have to solve them somehow. So a million people come up with a million solutions that are just a little bit different. If computing is being done by fewer resources, there will be enormous security gains by pushing things into standard practices.
Nobody ever left the presidency with less regret, less disappointment, fewer heart burnings, or any general content with the result of his term (in his own heart, I mean) than I do. Full of difficulty and trouble at first, I now find myself on smooth waters and under bright skies.
I live in the United States, and I’m not moving. But from the standpoint of food safety, the countries in Scandinavia do it better than we do. It’s not that they don’t have food-poisoning incidents; it’s that there are many fewer in proportion to the population.
A lot of my friends aren’t working, especially since fewer films are being made now and there’s more competition.
If I were to leave Congress and want to start Farenthold TV, it would be very difficult. The fewer players there are, the fewer the opportunities to build a big enough audience to get on.
In the game of life, less diversity means fewer options for change. Wild or domesticated, panda or pea, adaptation is the requirement for survival.
It’s better to have fewer things of quality than too much expendable junk.
You have fewer rights because you are a minority. Absolutely, thatвЂ™s how democracy works.
The roles do get fewer as you get older. That’s the same for all professions, there’s fewer roles for people later in life. I don’t think it should be like that because as long as you are able to do your job then people should keep working with you. It shouldn’t come down to age.
Economically, long-term joblessness means fewer dollars for consumption. For deficit control, it means fewer taxpayers contributing to government revenues and tens of billions more spent on unemployment insurance.
The historical weight of gender inequality has tended to concentrate women in lower-paid jobs with fewer benefits and at the same time made them primarily responsible for care giving.
If every school would hire two more music teachers, we would need two fewer police officers.
More people on unemployment benefits is not success in America, fewer people on not because we kicked them off but because they have been able to get a job in the private sector, because government got out of the way.
As our farms and factories grew more efficient, they accounted for a shrinking share of our economy. And the more productive agriculture and manufacturing became, the fewer people they employed.

We look at the poor shots and ask why. Then we work on stability and balance. We’re always trying to get the club in the little bit better position so we hit fewer poor shots.
I don’t have much time for stories,” Vin said. “Seems that fewer and fewer people do, these days.” A canopy kept off the ash, but he seemed unconcerned about the mists. “It makes me wonder what is so alluring about the real world that gives them all such a fetish for it. It’s not a very nice place these days.
There are so many good roles for women out there, I don’t understand it when people say the role choices are fewer as you get older. I find the opposite to be true – there are less good roles out there for the hot 20-year-olds because the normal girl parts just aren’t interesting.
As we segregate by income into different communities, schools in lower-income areas have fewer resources than ever.
We need fewer philosophies and more philosophers.
The fewer expectations you have, the better.
In the past, few women have tried and even fewer have succeeded.
Considering their impact, you might expect mosquitoes to get more attention than they do. Sharks kill fewer than a dozen people every year, and in the U.S. they get a week dedicated to them on TV every year.
Successful people don’t have fewer problems. They have determined that nothing will stop them from going forward.
Does it make any sense at all that the chair of a national party would want fewer voters to see our candidates?
The limitations that we can see of the sexual description of reality are very apparent. Very few men attain enlightenment, even fewer women.

Fewer and fewer Americans possess objects that have a patina, old furniture, grandparents pots and pans – the used things, warm with generations of human touch, essential to a human landscape. Instead, we have our paper phantoms, transistorized landscapes. A featherweight portable museum.
The boundaries between you and not-you вЂ” what lies beyond your skin вЂ” relax and become more permeable. While infused with love you see fewer distinctions between you and others. Indeed, your ability to see others вЂ” really see them, wholeheartedly вЂ” springs open.
Liberals complain that coal activity isn’t a major producer of jobs because the industry is producing a lot more coal with a lot fewer workers. That is absolutely true. Ladies and gentlemen, that is called productivity.
Much wisdom often goes with fewer words.
The use of force is easy to rationalize in terms of basic economics. ‘We should make them PAY for what they’ve done!’ It’s just the law of demand: raise the price of crossing us, and fewer people will cross us. Make the price another Hiroshima, and perhaps the quantity demanded will fall to zero.
The logic was, there weren’t too many female comedians, so I thought I might as well try a field that had fewer competitors than the field I was in, which was acting, singing and dancing.
The role of business is to provide products and services that make peoples lives better – while using fewer resources – and to act lawfully and with integrity.
I think that too far, too much, to a greater degree than is anywhere near appropriate, America and our politics are being governed by more and more powerful interests, by fewer and fewer people in the sense of the amount of money that has controlled access and other kinds of things.
If more people recognized the difference between friendship and mere attraction, or how love must partake of both to prosper, I expect there’d be more happy people.” “And a lot fewer poems and plays,” I said, laughing as I splashed about in the scented water.
I know I am getting better at golf because I am hitting fewer spectators.
The way the music industry is now geared, it’s fewer accolades towards new and upcoming acts. New bands offer bright creativity. It’s a set format. A venue would rather hire a DJ than a band, and that’s a problem.
I think guys, because we share a history growing up of being stereotyped, because there are fewer of us in the dance world, that contributes early on to a bond among us. A lot of us share stories of being harassed or teased growing up – there’s a certain deep camaraderie that’s formed through that shared struggle.
In cyberspace, we get many fewer cues about the emotional states and attitudes of the people we’re talking to. That makes it less interesting, easier to mis-communicate, and more likely to destroy trust. So you need to treat cyberspace with care, especially being aware of the fragile nature of trust in the virtual world.
I do not in fact use many puns. Certainly there are far fewer than people believe. But I suspect the ones I do occasionally use tend to hang around in people’s memories for a while.
Spending our tax dollars on actually preventing crimes, instead of pursuing death sentences after they’ve already been committed, will assure us we will have fewer victims.
I wanted to change the rules of engagement, asking for more- from fewer. I was insisting that we had to have only the best people…If you wanted excellence, at a minimum, the ambience had to reflect excellence.
Hitting the ball is the fun part of it, but the fewer times you hit the ball the more fun you have.

My whole premise has been, right from the beginning, that it would take me a lifetime to learn to explain myself as an artist. As you grow older, you learn what to do and what to leave out. You kind of simplify your work and get the same thing done with fewer strokes. It’s pretty interesting to me.
No one would wish a bad marriage on anyone. But where do we think good marriages come from? They don’t spring full blown from the head of Zeus any more than does a good education…Why should a marriage require fewer tears and less toil and shabbier commitment than your job or your clothes or your car?

When fewer workers have unions, the standard of living falls for everyone and the gap between the rich and poor grows.
I think, as you move to the upper ranks of science – ranks being positions of influence and access – you see fewer female faces.

I will make no apologies, ever, for protecting the lives and the safety of the American people. We have to give more tools to our folks to be able to do that, not fewer, and then trust those people and oversee them to do it the right way. As president, that is exactly what I’ll do.

I’m going to reduce the size of the Cabinet, cut the number of ministers, reduce the size of the House of Commons, campaign for a European Parliament with 100 fewer members, halve the number of political advisers, and abolish a huge swathe of Labour’s regional bureaucracies – and agencies and their offices in Brussels.

The American people today are involved in a warfare more deadly than the war in Vietnam, but few of them seem aware of it and even fewer of them are doing anything about it.
