10 QUOTES WITH «LINK»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word link.
1
David Attenborough
The most extraordinary thing about trying to piece together the missing links in the evolutionary story is that when you do find a missing link and put it in the story, you suddenly need all these other missing links to connect to the new discovery. The gaps and questions actually increase - it's extraordinary.
2
Anatoli Boukreev
Concerned that others were not coming onto the summit and because I had no radio link to those below me, I began to wonder if there were difficulties down the mountain. I made the decision to descend.
3
Rory Bremner
I am proud of Edinburgh's status as a financial centre, but where is it on the index of global financial centres? Sixty-fourth. Below Hamilton, Casablanca and Mauritius. London, by contrast, is second only to New York. That's a link worth keeping.
4
Leonid I. Brezhnev
Whatever else may divide us, Europe is our common home; a common fate has linked us through the centuries, and it continues to link us today.
5
Aristide Briand
But I am sure also that from a political point of view, and from a social point of view the federal link, without infringing the sovereignty of any of the nations which might take part in such as association, could be beneficial.
6
Jeffrey Brown
I keep up with James Kochalka's online strip, and if I see a link somewhere or someone tells me about something, I'll look at it, but I don't usually keep up with any sites other than the 'American Elf.' I always have this feeling that there's not enough space in the screen, like everything's always getting cut off.
7
Lizzy Caplan
I think it's necessary to identify with anything - with any character you play, there's got to be something in common, so you can link up to that person, even if it's like one tiny thing. But it's equally fun to play somebody completely different, and trying to find what that thing is to make it.
8
Matt Cartwright
A balanced diet and physical activity are vital to academic performance. A healthy diet has a direct link to increased cognitive function and memory skills, decreased absenteeism from school, and improved mood. These advantages can help students stay focused and complete their coursework.
9
Eduardo Chillida
What comes from oneself, is nearly from no one. There is only me as a link.

I'm very interested in how we read things, especially the link between seeing two-dimensional and three-dimensional images, because of how I read.
