Expectation Values

Famous quotes containing the words expectation and/or values:

    A youthful mind is seldom totally free from ambition; to curb that, is the first step to contentment, since to diminish expectation is to increase enjoyment.
    Frances Burney (1752–1840)

    Nothing is so threatening to conventional values as a man who does not want to work or does not want to work at a challenging job, and most people are disturbed if a man in a well- paying job indicates ambivalence or dislike toward it.
    Alice S. Rossi (b. 1922)
