### Famous quotes containing the words estimate, maximum and/or likelihood:

“Shall we then judge a country by the majority, or by the minority? By the minority, surely. ‘Tis pedantry to *estimate* nations by the census, or by square miles of land, or other than by their importance to the mind of the time.”

—Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

“Probably the only place where a man can feel really secure is in a *maximum* security prison, except for the imminent threat of release.”

—Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

“Sustained unemployment not only denies parents the opportunity to meet the food, clothing, and shelter needs of their children but also denies them the sense of adequacy, belonging, and worth which being able to do so provides. This increases the *likelihood* of family problems and decreases the chances of many children to be adequately prepared for school.”

—James P. Comer (20th century)
