Bobby Robson
When an alluring woman comes in at the door,” warningly traced the austere Kien-fi on the margin of his well-known essay, “discretion may be found up the chimney”.

Stephen Colbert

Bobby Jones

Greg Boyle
We see God all the time here. People only hear bad things about our neighborhood. Kensington is known as the badlands.

Jeff Schultz

Joan Halifax
My folks tried to make a preacher of me and missed by a narrow margin… I would have made a good one if I hadn’t fallen into the fatal folly of reading anything I could lay hands on. With just a touch more self confidence and a liberal helping of ignorance I could have been a famous evangelist.
Robert A. Heinlein
My understanding from talking to a lot of people in the business has been that it used to be that a newspaper was considered a community service.

Caprice Bourret
In any society, the artist has a responsibility. His effectiveness is certainly limited and a painter or writer cannot change the world. But they can keep an essential margin of non-conformity alive.

Luis Bunuel
It’s a different style of golf; that stands out for sure when you come over to America. The style of play and the golf courses in America. Most golf courses in America either stretch your game, and test different elements of your game and the margins for error are smaller.
Tommy Fleetwood
As geographers, Sosius, crowd into the edges of their maps parts of the world which they do not know about, adding notes in the margin to the effect that beyond this lies nothing but sandy deserts full of wild beasts, and unapproachable bogs.
Well, it’s possible that the new infusion of ad money against Donald Trump kept his margins in Kentucky and Louisiana down a bit. But we’re also seeing something that we’ve never seen in 100 years, which is we are seeing the crackup of a major American political party.
Mara Liasson
I think you’ll find that these are measures that have great bipartisan support, and so I expect, not only did we do well in the primary, I think we’ll win by a wide margin in the fall because we’re going to get a lot of independents and conservative Democrats coming to us.
Rand Paul
The owner of a company with supertight margins – say, a restaurant, retailer, or producer of commodity goods – would be a fool not to keep a close eye on the numbers. But when I make big decisions, numbers are seldom, if ever, the tiebreaker.
Jason Fried
It’s not about revenues: The fundamental economics in digital business is scale and margins. The top line has become the bottom line.
Yuri Milner
I have spent all my life advocating on behalf of the poor, oppressed and marginalized. As a social justice and human rights activist, and now as President of the Republic of Malawi, I have a deep appreciation for the challenges of those on the margins of society.
Joyce Banda
Men think women should do trivial things on the margins. They think women should be merely a seasoning for a dish. I feel anger and sorrow seeing this.
Kim Hyesoon
War is the province of chance. In no sphere of human activity is such a margin to be left for this intruder. It increases the uncertainty of every circumstance, and deranges the course of events.
Carl von Clausewitz
A new poll says that if the election were held today, both John Kerry and John Edwards would beat President Bush by double digit margins. The White House is so worried about this, they’re now thinking of moving up the capture of Osama Bin Laden to next month.
Jay Leno
Due to Multi-Tenancy our gross margin by over 70%.
Zach Nelson
Profit margins are probably the most mean-reverting series in finance, and if profit margins do not mean-revert, then something has gone badly wrong with capitalism. If high profits do not attract competition, there is something wrong with the system and it is not functioning properly.
Jeremy Grantham
I don’t think that the world will ever become an unpoliced place, sadly. But I do feel that there is relative freedom on the margins.
Kenneth Goldsmith
A September 2015 poll found that, by a 3-1 margin, voters are more likely to support political candidates who favor raising the minimum wage.
David Rolf
Evaluation and coaching get tangled together. When this occurs, the noise of evaluation drowns out coaching efforts. Think of this like a term paper. When you get your assignment grade back (evaluation) you tend to tune out the professor notes in the margins (coaching) if the grade is higher or lower than expected.
Sheila Heen
In order to grow at this pace, there will have to be a couple of acquisitions along the way. The tricky thing is to grow at this rate and maintain a 40 percent operating margin.
Larry Ellison
I consider Apple to be very closed. Let’s say you have a book business, and you are charging 5 to 7 percent gross margins; you can’t exist in an Apple world because they want 30 percent, and they don’t care that you only have 7 percent to play with.
Gabe Newell
The winner’s margin of victory also matters. If it’s a squeaker, that will make the lessons learned for both parties much murkier.
Mara Liasson
The margin of error in astrology is plus or minus one hundred percent.
Calvin Trillin
Chris Christie won by such a wide margin that pundits say this will give him the impetus he needs to run for president. And he’s got a new slogan: ‘Put the oval in the Oval Office.’
Jay Leno
The U.S. and European markets have become mature, profit margins are lower, and equipment isn’t so new. Because profits are relatively low, it limits the willingness of companies to invest in newer equipment.
Zong Qinghou
During the Middle Ages they understood that words accompanied by imagery are much more memorable. By making the margins of a book colorful and beautiful, illuminations help make the text unforgettable. It’s unfortunate that we’ve lost the art of illumination.
Joshua Foer
Flexible supply chains are great for multinationals and consumers. But they erode already thin profit margins in developing-world factories and foster a pell-mell work environment in which getting the order out the door is the only thing that matters.
James Surowiecki
When e-commerce companies build scale, cost comes down. Companies that can handle scale and reduce costs over time will win. Margins will come from reducing costs over time and not by increasing prices. Technology is the answer at large scale.
Sachin Bansal
High leverage is unsafe, not just for a company but the entire economy… LBOs are reducing the safety. Management loses the power to do many things. It has no margin for error and less margin for additional risk.
Franco Modigliani
I asked him what, if anything, got him down about teaching. He said he didn’t think that anything about it got him exactly down, but there was one thing, he thought, that frightened him: reading the pencilled notations in the margins of books in the college library.
J. D. Salinger
By creating so many illusory images of physical perfection, whether on store aisles or storefront ads, magazine covers or TV shows, we speak more to the profit margins of companies than the self-esteem of today’s girls.
Adora Svitak
I was quite intrigued by the idea of following the exploits of people who are often in the margins. You see the negotiators, but it’s usually the SWAT team or the tactical team that draw our eye.
Luke Roberts
Looking at the poems of John Gray when I saw the tiniest rivulet of text meandering through the very largest meadow of margin, I suggested to Oscar Wilde that he should go a step further than these minor poets; he should publish a book all margin; full of beautiful, unwritten thoughts.
Ada Leverson
People who harbor strong convictions without evidence belong at the margins of our societies, not in our halls of power. The only thing we should respect in a person’s faith is his desire for a better life in this world; we need never have respected his certainty that one awaits him in the next.
Sam Harris
Brands will increasingly handle their own e-commerce and rely less and less on local distribution partners. Why should they give away their profit margins?
Natalie Massenet
After the conquest of the South Pole by Amundsen who, by a narrow margin of days only, was in advance of the British Expedition under Scott, there remained but one great main object of Antarctic journeying – the crossing of the South Polar continent from sea to sea
Ernest Shackleton
For me, the eye and the word go together. Even when I was working in word documents, I was always obsessed with fonts, size, margins – the look of words on a page. The way something looks or sounds is also what it means.
Masha Tupitsyn
I mean, [Donald Trump] won by a sizable margin.
Rudy Giuliani
I support the death penalty. But I also think there has to be no margin for error.
George Ryan
Wal-Mart uses technology to increase sales volume, but the more it does so, the more it drives down profit margins – its own and everybody else’s. The same logic does not appear to hold for Goldman Sachs.
Timothy Noah
Being Christian without the Church doesn’t make sense. That’s why the great Paul VI, said that the most absurd dichotomy is loving Christ without the Church. To listen to Christ, but not the Church. To be with Christ, but stay at the margins of the Church. It’s not possible. It’s an absurd dichotomy.
Pope Francis
When a company is fairly certain of a profit margin that is substantial, it can assume responsibility for the clinical trials to develop a blockbuster drug.
Anthony S. Fauci
By the margin of fair Zurich’s waters Dwelt a youth, whose fond heart, night and day, For the fairest of fair Zurich’s daughters In a dream of love melted away.
Charles Dance
The farmers are older; they are under financial stress to produce more margins, yet they keep getting less.
Joel Salatin
I’m from Kingston, R.I., sort of on the University of Rhode Island campus – on the margins of that, actually.
Jhumpa Lahiri
In the margin for error lies all our room for maneuver.
James Geary
There is a close logical connection between the concept of a safety margin and the principle of diversification.
Benjamin Graham
Does the ‘Paranormal’ lie within the margins between the ‘Metacosm’ [a larger reality beyond the macro/microcosms consisting of 10 dimensions or more] and the virtual reality established by the digital simulation?
Chuck Missler
But if you – if what – the reports are true, what they’re saying is, is that as a consequence of us getting 30 million additional people health care, at the margins that’s going to increase our costs, we knew that.
Barack Obama
If you don’t mind haunting the margins, I think there is more freedom there.
Colin Firth
