Best Scope Quotes

  1. “The most common mistake you’ll make is forgetting to keep your own scorecard. Very little at work reinforces your ability to do this, so you will have to be vigilant. When evaluators give you an assessment, they are just guessing at who you are; they certainly are not the ones who know your potential.

Revolution is in Asia, revolution is in Africa, and the white man is screaming because he sees revolution in Latin America. How do you think he’ll react to you when you learn what a real revolution is?” ~ Malcolm X
  11. “The evidence that at least one extraterrestrial civilization has visited Earth is extensive both in scope and detail.

Greer

The confluence is fortunate, an alignment that gives women unique opportunities to assist in the continuing transformation of the workplace.” ~ Sally Helgesen

They will guide you to the full scope and depth of your power. How you use your power is up to you.” ~ Gary Zukav

  43. “God’s Word is not presented in Scripture in the form of a theological system, but it admits of being stated in that form, and, indeed, requires to be so stated before we can properly grasp it – grasp it, that is, as a whole.

I. Packer

  50. “Being a female director become as professional as your male colleagues and forget the whole question about being female. You are female anyway and it is going to work in your favor.

Absolutely nothing is now beyond the scope of State power.” ~ Joseph Sobran

Is it thy spirit that thou send’st from thee So far from home into my deeds to pry, To find out shames and idle hours in me, The scope and tenor of thy jealousy? O, no! thy love, though much, is not so great: It is my love that keeps mine eye awake: Mine own true love that doth my rest defeat, To play the watchman ever for thy sake: For thee watch I, whilst thou dost wake elsewhere, From me far off, with others all too near.” ~ William Shakespeare
  56. “‘Dreamsongs’ allows me to show the scope of my writing – with personal commentary that puts the works in context and includes some autobiographical details intended to reveal how each piece came to be, what it represents, and how it has formed, or been informed by, my philosophy of writing.” ~ George R. R. Martin
