Fading Affect Bias

Famous quotes containing the words fading, affect and/or bias:

    This is the dead land
    This is cactus land

    Under the twinkle of a fading star.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    It’s important to remember that children who are facing a frightening situation have three fundamental concerns: Am I safe? Are you, the people who care for me, safe? How will this affect my daily life?
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    The solar system has no anxiety about its reputation, and the credit of truth and honesty is as safe; nor have I any fear that a skeptical bias can be given by leaning hard on the sides of fate, of practical power, or of trade, which the doctrine of Faith cannot down-weigh.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
