    loss Quotes

    Price fixing does not represent simply windfall gains and losses to particular groups according to whether the price happens to be set higher or lower than it would be otherwise. It represents a net lose to the economy as a whole to the extent that many transactions do not take place at all, because the mutually acceptable possibilities have been reduced.

    More frightening to me than any policy or politician is the ease with which the public is played for fools with words. The latest example is the 'Employee Freedom of Choice Act,' a bill that will do away with secret ballot elections among workers voting on whether to be represented by a union. It is an open invitation to intimidation - which is to say, loss of freedom of choice.
    — Thomas Sowell

    Without seeing any reason to believe that women are, on the average, so strong physically, intellectually, or morally, as men, I cannot shut my eyes to the fact that many women are much better endowed in all these respects than many men, and I am at a loss to understand on what grounds of justice or public policy a career which is open to the weakest and most foolish of the male sex should be forcibly closed to women of vigor and capacity.
    — Thomas Huxley

    The loss of the religious understanding of the human condition-that Man is a fallen creature for whom virtue is necessary but never fully attainable-is a loss, not a gain, in true sophistication. The secular substitute-the belief in the perfection of life on earth by the endless extension of a choice of pleasures-is not merely callow by comparison but much less realistic in its understanding of human nature.
    — Theodore Dalrymple

    It's almost weirder sometimes when you don't have a full life experience with someone's ups and downs, knowing what they've been through. Sometimes a loss that just comes out of left field rings in a very weird way when you have actually sort of relied on this small moment with this or that person, as a moment that actually has defined something for you in your life.
    — Ted Leo
    The obsessive documentation is itself adjacent to hyper-consumption in our society.

    — Ted Leo
