Standard Definition

Famous quotes containing the words standard and/or definition:

    As long as male behavior is taken to be the norm, there can be no serious questioning of male traits and behavior. A norm is by definition a standard for judging; it is not itself subject to judgment.
    Myriam Miedzian, U.S. author. Boys Will Be Boys, ch. 1 (1991)

    ... we all know the wag’s definition of a philanthropist: a man whose charity increases directly as the square of the distance.
