Best 103 of Measurement quotes - MyQuotes
Temperature measurements in the arctic suggest that it was just as warm there in the 1930's...before most greenhouse gas emissions. Don't you ever wonder whether sea ice concentrations back then were low, too?

When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it.
No effect that requires more than 10 percent accuracy in measurement is worth investigating.
The clock, for all its precision in measurement, is a blunt instrument for the psyche and for society. Schedules can replace sensitivity to the mood of a moment, clock time can ride roughshod over the emotions of individuals.
Memories are not always the best measure of things.
When it comes to exploring the mind in the framework of cognitive neuroscience, the maximal yield of data comes from integrating what a person experiences - the first person - with what the measurements show - the third person.

John F. Kerry
The measurement in this race is not where you come from, it is "what do you fight for.
In business, the idea of measuring what you are doing, picking the measurements that count like customer satisfaction and performance... you thrive on that.

The more precise the measurement of position, the more imprecise the measurement of momentum, and vice versa.
We need to stop comparing ourselves to others, and stop patting ourselves on the back for attaining artificial measurements of spirituality. We need to take care that we do not think we are something we are not, or else we may deceive ourselves, setting ourselves up for rebuke in the future when we see Christ face to face
There is nothing new to be discovered in physics now. All that remains is more and more precise measurement.
The goal of measurement is to not only do things right but do the right things and continuously improve doing that.
Children make the best measurements of time. It is only when I see the son or daughter of a friend or relative over periods of time, do I realize how much time has passed based on how much they've grown.
Yoon Ha Lee
In space there are no seasons, and this is as true of the ships that cross the distances between humanity's far-flung homes. But we measure our seasons anyway: by a smile, a silence, a song.
Performance Management is a holistic management discipline which needs to connect many relevant dots to involve development, enablement, and enhancement.
For millenia, scientists always try to measure the size of this vast universe. One way to know that is first to find the smallest single thing that constructs this universe. When they get it, the real measurement of universe can be understood for sure.
Every measure selected should be part of a link of cause-and-effect relationships, and ultimately affect the growth and long-term perspectives of the organization.
All conflict in the world is essentially about our differences in measurement.
It is difficult to have a highly competitive organization without highly competitive talent.
Thought and science are therefore raising problems which their terms of study can never answer, many of which are doubtless problems only for thought. The trisection of an angle is similarly an insoluble problem only for compass and straight-edge construction, and Achilles cannot overtake the tortoise so long as their progress is considered piecemeal, endlessly having the distance between them. However, as it is not Achilles but the method of measurement which fails to catch up with the tortoise, so it is not man but his method of thought which fails to find fulfillment in experience.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Kinship among nations is not determined in such measurements as proximity of size and age.
Our goals should serve as markers, measurements of the progress we make in pursuit of something greater than ourselves.
It is a real issue, a measurement of our society, when we say it's fine to destroy unborn life who has a heartbeat at 16 days post-conception.
Love should never be too much or too less, yet it cannot be measured.
IT metrics need to evolve to something that matters to the business audience; at the same time that “business sentiment” needs to get put into something more tangible.
Our universe is not a 'was' or a 'will be' system. It is an 'is' system vibrating within the 'now' measurement of time.
Whenever you can, count.
Marie-louise Von Franz
The mathematical forms of order which the mind of a physicist manipulates coincides "miraculously" with experimental measurements.
Strategic-operational KPIs alignment gives the organization a powerful tool to use when implementing change.
When left alone, quantum particles behave as multiple images of themselves (as waves, really), simultaneously moving through all possible paths in space and time. Now, again, why do we not experience this multitude around ourselves? Is it because we are probing things around us all the time? Why do all experiments that involve, say, the position of a particle make the particle suddenly be somewhere rather than everywhere? No one knows. Before you probe it, a particle is a wave of possibilities. After you've probed it, it is somewhere, and subsequently it is somewhere for ever, rather than everywhere again. Strange, that. Nothing, within the laws of quantum physics, allows for such a collapse to happen. It is an experimental mystery and a theoretical one. Quantum physics stipulates that whenever something is there, it can transform into something else, of course, but it cannot disappear. And since quantum physics allows for multiple possibilities simultaneously, these possibilities should then keep existing, even after a measurement is made. But they don't. Every possibility but one vanishes. We do not see any of the others around us. We live in a classical world, where everything is based on quantum laws but nothing resembles the quantum world.
The “self-driven” talent performance management is pursuing the digital way to run a purpose-driven organization.
In the measurement world, we set a goal and strive to achieve it. In the universe of possibility, we set the context and let life unfold.
In the 1920s, there was a dinner at which the physicist Robert W. Wood was asked to respond to a toast ... 'To physics and metaphysics.' Now by metaphysics was meant something like philosophy—truths that you could get to just by thinking about them. Wood took a second, glanced about him, and answered along these lines: The physicist has an idea, he said. The more he thinks it through, the more sense it makes to him. He goes to the scientific literature, and the more he reads, the more promising the idea seems. Thus prepared, he devises an experiment to test the idea. The experiment is painstaking. Many possibilities are eliminated or taken into account; the accuracy of the measurement is refined. At the end of all this work, the experiment is completed and ... the idea is shown to be worthless. The physicist then discards the idea, frees his mind (as I was saying a moment ago) from the clutter of error, and moves on to something else. The difference between physics and metaphysics, Wood concluded, is that the metaphysicist has no laboratory.
Golf is not, on the whole, a game for realists. By its exactitudes of measurements it invites the attention of perfectionists.
The Great Idea in advertising is far more than the sum of the recognition scores, the ratings and all the other superficial indicators of its success; it is in the realm of myth, to which measurements cannot apply.
If you don’t want to regret your life late, then begin to invest your time, begin to measure your life.

Be careful not to measure your holiness by other people's sins.
Every sentence in order to have definite scientific meaning must be practically or at least theoretically verifiable as either true or false upon the basis of experimental measurements either practically or theoretically obtainable by carrying out a definite and previously specified operation in the future. The meaning of such a sentence is the method of its verification.
