Jiddu Krishnamurti
All women need support when they’re having their babies and their little families are in formation.

Luis Federico Leloir

Cyrus Pembridge, the Never Land’s captain, was widely regarded as the most incompetent man to comman a ship since the formation of water. “Who in the name of common sense would put to sea on that ship with that man in charge?” wondered Mack. “Well,” Alf answered, “we are.” “True,” Mack said.

Sri Aurobindo
My family belonged to a very particular formation – middle-class and coloured, not black. That meant it had a closer connection to the plantocracy than many other people did. So I didn’t feel like an ordinary black Jamaican boy.

Hank Stram
I sometimes say animals are closer to God than humans. They are closer to the source. The humans are more lost in the mind forms. Being is more obscured to the human because of the overlay of ego and mental formation.

Bill Cosby
I prefer the 4-2-3-1 formation and stick to it but have my own interpretations.

Talal Asad
And the formation of man is the most pressing problem facing humanity.
Bruce Chatwin
What is perceptible to one’s mistrust is the cut-and-dried way that life is divided up and the ready-made form it assumes, the ever-recurring sameness of it, the pre-formations passed down by generation after generation, the ready-made language not only of the tongue but also of the sensations and the feelings.
Robert Musil

John Lahr
‘Formation’ and ‘Lemonade’ speak to experiences that are too under-represented in our culture. But there are costs to certain forms of visibility. I don’t think it is a bad thing to discuss what these costs are.

The only legitimate use for a glove is to cover an injury… A desire to prevent callus formation (possibly so as to not snag one’s pantyhose) does not constitute a legitimate use. And if you do insist on wearing gloves, make sure they match your purse.
Mark Rippetoe
My perfect formation would be 4-3-3 with one holding and then the two going forward. I would be one of the ones going forward.
Jack Wilshere
Spiritual formation cannot, in the nature of the case, be a ‘private’ thing, because it is a matter of whole-life transformation. You need to seek out others in your community who are pursuing the renovation of the heart.
Dallas Willard
I’m going to tell you the story about the geese which fly 5,000 miles from Canada to France. They fly in V-formation but the second ones don’t fly. They’re the subs for the first ones. And then the second ones take over – so it’s teamwork.
Alex Ferguson
The best speakers know enough to be scared…the only difference between the pros and the novices is that the pros have trained the butterflies to fly in formation.
Edward R. Murrow
In all her history, from the formation of the federal government until the hour of secession, no year stands out more prominently than the year 1858 as evidencing the national patriotism of Virginia.
John Sergeant Wise
I think that the formation of [DNA’s] structure by Watson and Crick may turn out to be the greatest developments in the field of molecular genetics in recent years.
Linus Pauling
Spiritual formation is character formation. Everyone gets a spiritual formation. It’s like education. Everyone gets an education; it’s just a matter of which one you get.
Dallas Willard
The photogram, image formation outside the camera is the real key to photography,it embodies the essence… that allows us to capture light on light sensitive material without the use of any camera.
Laszlo Moholy-Nagy
Everything is a formation or an aggregate of love.
Frederick Lenz
I believe that the first step in the setting of a real external world is the formation of the concept of bodily objects and of bodily objects of various kinds.
Albert Einstein
It all went back to problems we had talked about before, you know, such as the British not believing in formation bombing and not believing in daytime bombing.
Stuart Symington
The great rocks of Yosemite, expressing qualities of timeless yet intimate grandeur, are the most compelling formations of their kind. We should not casually pass them by, for they are the very heart of the earth speaking to us.
Ansel Adams
In particular, with climbing, we’re climbing on these surfaces that Mother Nature has created. We search out the most perfect pieces of rock. It’s so amazing that these formations are so perfect for climbing on. It’s almost as if they were created for climbing.
Chris Sharma
My leg was made for kicking things. Doesn’t matter the circumstance, style or formation. It’s all about putting your foot on the right spot of the ball and letting your leg velocity do the rest.
Pat McAfee
The missionary experience is part of Christian formation and it is important for adolescents and young people to be able to live it personally.
Pope Benedict XVI
I paint a mountain – I think of its age – the strata formations or what grows on the mountain.
Douglas Lockwood
There arises from a bad and unapt formation of words a wonderful obstruction to the mind.
Francis Bacon
In the formation of our constitution the wisdom of all ages is collected-the legislators of antiquity are consulted, as well as the opinions and interests of the millions who are concerned. It short, it is an empire of reason.
Noah Webster
We’re creating multiple personas. We’re creating a thespian sense of personality where we see ourselves as works of art, and we see everything in our environment as a prop, as a set, as a stage, as a backdrop for filling ourselves in. We don’t see ourselves as ever completed. We are in-formation.
Jeremy Rifkin
The Big Bang, the formation of sars and planets, the origin and evolution of life on this planet, the advent of human consciousness and the resultant evolution of cultures – this is the story, the one story, that has the potential to unite us, because it happens to be true.
Ursula Goodenough
It is difficult to click your fingers and say, ‘Right, go and play that formation now.’
Gary Cahill
Generally, management of many is the same as management of few. It is a matter of organization. And to control many is the same as to control few. This is a matter of formations and signals.
Sun Tzu
A food waste reduction hierarchy-feeding people first, then animals, then recycling, then composting-serves to show how productive use can be made of much of the excess food that is currently contributing to leachate and methane formation in landfills.
Carol Browner
I had the opportunity of making necropsies on patients dead from malignant fever and of studying the melanaemia, i.e., the formation of black pigment in the blood of patients affected by malaria.
Charles Louis Alphonse Laveran
I never supported violence. Before the formation of TMC, I was a member of the Congress Party. Gandhi’s Congress. Non-violence is a philosophy that runs deep.
Mamata Banerjee
And now here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Many Christians were suddenly prepared to look at traditional methods of spiritual formation. They could not help but see that spiritual growth and vitality stem from what we actually do with our lives, from the habits we form, and from the character that results.
Dallas Willard
In the Shadow of Slavery covers two and a half centuries of black life in New York City, and skillfully interweaves the categories of race and class as they affected the formation of African American identity. Leslie Harris has made a major contribution to our understanding of the black experience.
Eric Foner
The formation of glass from the melting is like starting a clock. It resets the time for us to determine billions of years later.
Robert Duncan
It is implicit in the self that the self will automatically evolve if you can dissolve it. It re-patterns itself after archetypal formations that exist deep within the mind.
Frederick Lenz
The Twelve Signs of the Zodiac represents the twelve lessons of human existence, the 12 qualities to be developed in the formation of the perfect man (and woman).
Vera Stanley Alder
I liked books – the respite and privacy of them – books about plants and the formation of ice and the business of world wars. Whenever I sank into them I felt free.
Tim Winton
My butterflies are still going strong. I just hope they are flying in formation.
Larry Mize
I am sure the man who powders most, perfumes most, embroiders most, and talks most nonsense, is most admired. Though to be candid, there are some who have too much good sense to esteem such monkey-like animals as these, in whose formation, as the saying is, the tailors and barbers go halves with God Almighty.
Thomas Jefferson
We all know that any thing which retards in any way the free circulation of the sap, also prevents to a certain extent the formation of wood and leaves.
Robert Fortune
No one planet can tell us everything about the universe, but Neptune seems to hold more than its share of information about the formation of our own solar system – as well as the solar systems beyond.
Heidi Hammel
Mount Harris is of basaltic formation, but I could not observe any columnar regularity in it, although large blocks are exposed above the ground. The rock is extremely hard and sonorous.
Charles Sturt
Averageness is a quality we must put up with. Men march toward civilization in column formation, and by the time the van has learned to admire the masters the rear is drawing reluctantly away from the totem pole.
Frank Moore Colby
It takes time to settle in and learn a new formation and style of play.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
We are incredibly heedless in the formation of our beliefs, but find ourselves filled with an illicit passion for them when anyone proposed to rob us of their companionship.
James Harvey Robinson
The jewel of the lard is right around the kidneys. But this is a fat that has a very specific crystalline formation and a high melting point.
Alton Brown
I welcome the signing by the presidential candidates Dr. Abdullah Abdullah and Dr. Ashraf Ghani of an agreement on the formation of a government of national unity in Afghanistan.
Anders Fogh Rasmussen
Capital formation is the greatest charity of all.
F. A. Harper
When will the arbitrary be granted the place it deserves in the formation of works and ideas?
Andre Breton
You almost have to be of a certain age to understand how hard it was to disseminate the truth before the Internet. After the formation of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action in 1975, we did it, and we did it well.
Wayne LaPierre
Every good piece of art… involves first essentially the evidence of human skill, and the formation of an actually beautiful thing by it.
John Ruskin
There is nothing that so raises a young man’s self-esteem, that so contributes to the formation of his character as for him to find himself unexpectedly confronted with a task which he has to accomplish entirely on his own initiative and by his own efforts.
Stefan Zweig
The glut of information that is spayed at us on a daily basis is an important factor in the formation of our ideologies, and it’s not even actually happening in front of us.
Andrew Neel
In advanced meditation there are methods and formations of joining the mind with the various aggregate aspects of the universe, fusing it, dissolving it, sometimes thousands of times in a microsecond or outside of time.
Frederick Lenz
Once we have chosen the right formation in the centre we have created opportunities for our pieces and laid the foundation of subsequent victory.
Alexander Kotov
…Be holy men and women! Do not forget that the fruits of the apostolate depend on the depth of the spiritual life, on the intensity of prayer, of continual formation and sincere adhesion to the directives of the Church.
Pope John Paul II
We are incredibly heedless in the formation of our beliefs, but find ourselves filled with an illicit passion for them when anyone proposes to rob us of their companionship. It is obviously not the ideas themselves that are dear to us, but our self-esteem, which is threatened.
James Harvey Robinson
Out of my discomforts, which were small enough, grew one thing for which I have all my life been grateful, the formation of fixed habits of work.
Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward
I hate how spiritual formation gets positioned as an optional pursuit for a small special interest group within the church.
John Ortberg
In conventional oil and natural gas production, you always produce a lot of formation water, and it’s crummy water. It’s real salty. It’s got heavy metals in it. It’s got bad stuff in it.
Rex Tillerson
Student loans are delaying retirements. They’re suppressing the housing market. They’re suffocating new business formation. They’re even leading young people to delay getting married and having children.
Annie Lowrey
Our ancient forebears who learned to synchronize the movements of dance were those with the capacity to predict what others around them were going to do and signal to others what they wanted to do next. These forms of communication may well have helped lead to the formation of larger human communities.
Daniel Levitin
I only debate with serious political youth formations. Not a group of the racist Helen Zille’s garden boys.
Julius Malema
The formation of the News America Publishing Group will lead to greater editorial excitement, new business opportunities and greater efficiencies and coordination.
Peter Chernin
The computers in Atlantis were infinitely evolved as opposed to what we see today. The science, the technology, everything was really done with light. All processing was done with light, with crystal formations and structures. Electricity is much too slow.
Frederick Lenz
The Bible is the Only Book That Can Make Us Wise unto Salvation. The Bible is not a book to be studied as we study geology and astronomy, merely to find out about the earth’s formation and the structure of the universe; but it is a book revealing truth, designed to bring us into living union with God.
George Frederick Pentecost
This is something that baffles me about managers: if you know the formation that you will revert to if you are in trouble, why not start with it?
Eniola Aluko
