Statistics Journal

Famous quotes containing the words statistics and/or journal:

    O for a man who is a man, and, as my neighbor says, has a bone in his back which you cannot pass your hand through! Our statistics are at fault: the population has been returned too large. How many men are there to a square thousand miles in this country? Hardly one.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I think this journal will be disadvantageous for me, for I spend my time now like a spider spinning my own entrails.
    Mary Bokin Chesnut (1823–1886)
