Famous quotes containing the word rate:

    If you could choose your parents,... we would rather have a mother who felt a sense of guilt—at any rate who felt responsible, and felt that if things went wrong it was probably her fault—we’d rather have that than a mother who immediately turned to an outside thing to explain everything, and said it was due to the thunderstorm last night or some quite outside phenomenon and didn’t take responsibility for anything.
    D.W. Winnicott (20th century)

    If I die prematurely at any rate I shall be saved from being bored to death at my own success.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    At the rate science proceeds, rockets and missiles will one day seem like buffalo—slow, endangered grazers in the black pasture of outer space.
    Bernard Cooper (b. 1936)
