7 QUOTES WITH «ELASTICITY»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word elasticity.
1
Kenneth Branagh
The elasticity of Shakespeare is extraordinary.
2
Jose Carreras
The voice is like a man, like ourselves: we all feel melancholic about what we have lost, the things we could do when we were young. But having the possibility to still perform is wonderful. The voice loses elasticity as you age, but on the other hand, maybe you are more mature as an interpreter, maybe your approach to singing deepens.
3
Nick Faldo
He hits it long. His shoulders are impressively quick through the ball. That's where he's getting his power from. He's young and has great elasticity.
4
Rutherford B. Hayes
The filth and noise of the crowded streets soon destroy the elasticity of health which belongs to the country boy.
5
August Krogh
The most direct evidence of the wonderful plasticity and elasticity of red corpuscles is obtained when they are watched in a current, where they can be caught against a projecting edge and bent by the pressure of the current flowing past them.
6
Albert Schweitzer
The willow which bends to the tempest, often escapes better than the oak which resists it; and so in great calamities, it sometimes happens that light and frivolous spirits recover their elasticity and presence of mind sooner than those of a loftier character.
7
Bill Veeck
I try not to break the rules but merely to test their elasticity.
