Famous quotes containing the words orientation and/or measuring:

    Every orientation presupposes a disorientation.
    Hans Magnus Enzensberger (b. 1929)

    Man always made, and still makes, grotesque blunders in selecting and measuring forces, taken at random from the heap, but he never made a mistake in the value he set on the whole, which he symbolized as unity and worshipped as God. To this day, his attitude towards it has never changed, though science can no longer give to force a name.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)
