On a long enough timeline. The survival rate for everyone drops to zero.

Chuck Palahniuk

Doesn't the fight for survival also justify swindle and theft? In self defence, anything goes.

Imelda Marcos

Journalism justifies its own existence by the great Darwinian principle of the survival of the vulgarist.

Oscar Wilde

John F. Kennedy

Perhaps catastrophe is the natural human environment, and even though we spend a good deal of energy trying to get away from it, we are programmed for survival amid catastrophe.

Germaine Greer

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art...It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.

C. S. Lewis

Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.

Albert Einstein

We're living in a super price-sensitive and competitive market. Companies are totally preoccupied with short-term survival. With that kind of mentality, you shouldn't be surprised that energy research budgets have been on the skids for years.

David Victor

To cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival.

Wendell Berry

I doubt the crew had any chance of survival.

Richard Crockett

Bikes have magic. I think bikes are one of the keys to human survival.

Carl Kurz

Their focus is elsewhere. They're fighting for survival.

David Schulz

If people want to guarantee their survival, then this is what they need. It's easy to wear, it's affordable, and it does what it says on the tin. I know I'll have one and my friends will have one. It's about self-preservation - that's the bottom line.

Richard Bailey

Learning is not compulsory... neither is survival.

W. Edwards Deming

Survival is a privilege which entails obligations. I am forever asking myself what I can do for those who have not survived.

Simon Wiesenthal

It's easy [for the doctor] to say something improves your survival or quality of life, but it might be that the amount it improves it is so small you may decide it is not worth doing it.

Arash Naeim

The more we exploit nature, The more our options are reduced, until we have only one: to fight for survival.

Morris K. Udall

I couldn't bring Eric down. I was in survival mode... . Everybody was in such pain.

Linda Pardo

We need better information on survival rates and recruitment rates of mourning doves. But we have to look at the availability and efficiency of non-toxic shot.

Jay Roberson

We have a dynamic and compelling plotline, epic scope and strong characters. As the game unfolds, the conflicts between the factions and the characters within them become the flashpoints for player missions, and what begins as a battle to live another day soon becomes a global fight for survival, with the player at the heart of the action.

James Swallow

In an age when man has forgotten his origins and is blind even to his most essential needs for survival, water along with other resources has become the victim of his indifference.

Rachel Carson

More and more services are meeting important clinical standards and survival rates show a marked improvement. We acknowledge, however, that the service still faces significant challenges, particularly in meeting the 2005 waiting-time target.

Brian Monteith

Many of the patients from these communities are poor, have multiple medical problems requiring additional support, and depend on government assistance for survival. Teaching hospitals consistently step up to the plate to care for these patients as part of their missions, and frequently lose significant money in the process.

John Erwin

God exists, if only in the form of a meme with high survival value, or infective power, in the environment provided by human culture.

Richard Dawkins

Happiness just wasn't part of the job description back then. You tried to find a helpmate to keep the cold wind and dogs at bay. Happiness just wasn't part of the equation. Survival was.

Robin Green

This isn't a matter of greed -- this is a matter of survival.

James Navolio

Considering Wall Street held serious doubts about Tweeter's survival, ... if the company can continue this sales momentum through the holiday season, it will be on much more solid footing and have a better chance for survival.

William Armstrong

The corps is asking the public to stay tuned. We do not have a preferred alternative selected. We have gathered up a tremendous amount of data over the past five years, working with the region and other federal agencies. All this information needs to be considered in developing a recommendation on improving salmon survival through the four lower Snake River dams.

Greg Graham

In a world where change is inevitable and continuous, the need to achieve that change without violence is essential for survival.

Andrew Young

People need to distinguish between combatants and those innocent civilians who do not bear arms. They also need to be mindful for protecting assets essential for the survival of Afghan civilians.

Stephanie Bunker

Fundraising has become survival for many of the schools. We don?t have enough money in our budget to buy everything we need.

Randy Gravon

The use of new technology supposes that participants have access to this new technology and accept its use and collaborate with the investigators. Where survival is a problem, people will not care about participating in this effort.

Joseph Inungu

Moderation is the secret of survival.

Manly Hall

Fijians do not seek permanency as an expression of racial superiority. Their motivation is to ensure the survival of a small and distinct race.

Laisenia Qarase

We sympathize with the widows but we have to look seriously at taking two survival parents into a war zone especially when there is a safer more predictable alternative available.

Paul Boyce

The more we get out of the world the less we leave, and in the long run we shall have to pay our debts at a time that may be very inconvenient for our own survival.

Norbert Wiener

The South was just black and white (people) 10 or 15 years ago. Latinos are just getting past the issue of survival and starting to get organized.

David Lubell

They talk about Bill Clinton being a great political and personal survivor. Edwin Edwards invented the notion of political survival and being great at the political comeback.

Ron Faucheux

The No. 1 instinct in politics is survival, ... going to have a much harder time than he's had so far in ... keeping people close to him.

Andrew Kohut

[Mr. Foley called the ensuing evening a,] difficult, gut-wrenching night. If the administration thinks that the sugar industry brought about the demise of this, there would have been hell to pay in the farm bill, ... This was somewhat of a survival of my constituents.

Mark Foley

I was built for this, ... I got those survival instincts. I'm like Robinson Crusoe, a neighborhood MacGyver.

Gregory Rodriguez

Loneliness has been described as a chronic disease with no redeeming features. But it is very important for the survival of our species. It contributes to our humanity.

John Cacioppo

GUILLOTINE, n. A machine which makes a Frenchman shrug his shoulders with good reason. In his great work on _Divergent Lines of Racial Evolution_, the learned Professor Brayfugle argues from the prevalence of this gesture -- the shrug -- among Frenchmen, that they are descended from turtles and it is simply a survival of the habit of retracing the head inside the shell. It is with reluctance .

Ambrose Bierce

When you're out there by yourself, all of sudden you start thinking about survival. You're thinking, 'God, what does this group of animals want?

Alan Kendall

It has changed a lot. They were not as abundant as they are now. I think what happened is everybody realized, if you are going to be competitive at the varsity level, you have to do what they are doing. If they have a little kids program, then we have to have one, too. It is kind of one of those survival things.

Al Frost

Heart failure is often associated with ventricular fibrillation (a condition where the heart beats irregularly). CPR buys a victim some time, but an AED jump-starts the heart and greatly increases the chance of survival.

Mike Schwartz

We have repeatedly warned that some of the world's oldest and smallest indigenous groups are at high risk not only of displacement, but even of extinction because of the Colombian conflict. All indigenous communities have close links to their ancestral land, on which their cultural survival depends.

William Spindler

This is the worst possible time to cut funding. Palestinians are on the edge of survival. One in four people depend on aid.

Jeremy Hobbs

I spoke with Terri -- she focused on my face, she responded. She's weak, but she's also at the same time, got that incredible survival instinct.

Patricia Anderson

Their survival is threatened.

Charles Carlson

We're just happy that we are going on. It was just a matter of survival at the end.

Del Schoenfish

Judd Terwilliger

Some people who have injuries don't have a chance of survival.

Rob Holden

We were marching to say we want more than day to day survival.

Jenni Williams

James Young

This global world has forever changed market and social conditions. I think our survival is at stake.

Brian Gallagher

The Jews are trying to destroy all other cultures - as a survival mechanism - the only Nazi country in the world is Israel.

David Duke

When we first had him he was very aware of his limited survival of his own mortality, and I think every day that he has he views as a blessing, ... We had a video conference with some of the other surgeons and nurses that are involved in the project, and his one message to them was 'Life is wonderful.'

Robert Dowling

I am sure my mother is happy. I understand now the point of my own survival.

Denise Epstein

With temperatures this low the body freezes quickly and there is little chance of survival.

Leszek Suski

I think the project was not as much of his talent as Terry came from an environment in Omaha where survival was probably as important as going to school and academics. He sat out basically because he did not meet all the NCAA standards Terry really has changed a lot. He has done better but he has a way to go.

Dave Gottsleben

This is a struggle for our very survival, not for any ideology.

Velimir Ilic

These days are the hard times. Some residents depend on the forest for their survival.

Marcos Malubay

It was a matter of survival.

Paul Deacon

The governor generally favors disclosure, and CDA loans are, after all, funded with public dollars, ... However, if the survival of a business and potential loss of jobs are at stake, other factors may need to be weighed.

David Dearborn

All that is really necessary for survival of the fittest, it seems, is an interest in life, good, bad or peculiar.

Grace Paley

For mid-sized suppliers in particular, the setting up of an own production outlet in the vicinity of the final product manufacturer became a question of survival: They had to follow their big customers abroad.

Hans Reich

Alone in the Dark is returning to the format that launched survival gaming - the PC - and after nearly a decade and a half of ever-accelerating technological progress, the title will again take the lead on next generation console with the Xbox 360, and on PC.

Cyril Voiron

You can argue that in recent years, Fahd's own personal paralysis has led to Saudi political paralysis. Abdullah is seen as in charge, but not really in charge. Fahd's physical survival has prevented anyone else from being king, and in some ways has preserved a degree of stability.

Shibley Telhami

This festival has always been, even in good times, a festival of cultural survival and we're surviving again. It's our social instinct when things go bad.

Barry Ancelet

It really is survival of the fittest.

Jeanne Finberg

Given the treatment she received, she had no chance of survival.

George Griffin

Our survival as a research company depends on our success, and that's just to maintain what we do.

Scott Aker

Life is an error-making and an error-correcting process, and nature in marking man's papers will grade him for wisdom as measured both by survival and by the quality of life of those who survive.

Jonas Salk

It puts us into survival mode.

Maryann Gregory

The issue is whether the regulatory unit of the New York Stock Exchange will survive. It's not just fighting for recognition; it's fighting for survival.

Bill Singer

New Orleans' survival depends on three things. Getting a handle on violent crime, building a viable public school system and eradicating the abject and debilitating corruption that that has plagued New Orleans for so long.

Jim Letten

I'm excited to be a part of the Maelstrom project. We have a dynamic and compelling plotline, epic scope and strong characters. As the game unfolds, the conflicts between the factions and the characters within them become the flashpoints for player missions. What begins as a battle to live another day soon becomes a global fight for survival, with the player at the heart of the action.

James Swallow

They plug me in anywhere they can think of. I also teach EMT classes, Wilderness First Responder, CPR, survival skills and rock climbing.

Scott Egolf

Patients who received double kidney transplants had similar short-term outcomes to patients who received single transplants. We found that we could achieve excellent patient survival and kidney function using marginal kidneys if they are both transplanted into a single recipient.

Robert Stratta

Divers have found there is no air left in the holds of the ship. That means sea water has filled the area, leaving no chance of survival.

Can Karaca

It's survival of the funniest.

Chris Browne

Luckily, it looks roughly like less people die with Ebola subtype Sudan, ... Also, the hospitals there are more sophisticated so the there's a better survival rate.

Scott Dowell

Water is one of the basic needs of survival of mankind and water can destroy it, too. That is the power of NATURE. But there is an even more powerful dimension of NATURE which is a blessing to humans; courage, intelligence, compassion and the power to stand again.

Vikas Khanna

I was fighting for my financial survival.

Alberto Vilar

Taking on the Red Cross — it's like touching the third rail. And yet, making serious changes in the Red Cross is critical to its survival as an organization serving a crucial function for the American public.

Bernadine Healy

Pastoralists living in these arid, remote lands have very few survival strategies left and desperately require our assistance to make it through until the next rains.

The success and even survival of many businesses today rests squarely on the security and reliability of their technology systems.

Shaun Cooper

This is the longest survival reported to date for advanced ovarian cancer.

Dr. Deborah Armstrong

We had polls ... showing us at zero and 1 (percent), and fighting for our very survival holding onto a handful of seats.

Goldy Hyder

We've worked really hard our whole lives to be where we're at today, ... It's not like something that we really wanted - we just wanted to be happy. Music was just survival. It was the way our family got through, and paid the phone bill and the light bill and got shoes for someone.

Henry Garza

It was teeming with a diversity of life, with mussels, tubeworms, fish and crabs. Struggles for survival were playing out before our eyes. The incredible multitude of crabs in combat with each other for existence is an image I will never forget.

Steve Price

In the survival studies conducted here, 80% of the rats with kidneys preserved in the HBS solution survived for more than seven days, whereas none of the same number of rats with kidneys preserved in the HTK solution survived more than four days.

Fernando Lopez

They all picked on me. It was survival of the fittest.

Roland Kampmeier

Although some workers retired at 55 because of failing health, these results clearly show that early retirement is not associated with increased survival. On the contrary, mortality improved with increasing age at retirement for people from both high and low socio-economic groups.

Shan Tsai

His eminence stressed two points: first, the importance of the Alliance, its survival and its unity, and second, the necessity of adhering to the decisions that came out of the Alliance.

Jawad Al maliki

Survival today means innovating and doing things that no one else does. This is a lesson not only for Sharp but for all of Japan.

Katsuhiko Machida

Social Security is important to the economic survival of African Americans and other people of color. We have traditionally been at the low end of the earning scale over our lifetime.

Hilary Shelton

Anything that can give us a clue about survival is important. Like many other things of this kind, we hope it just opens the door to new research.

Dr. Norman Edelman

Once you've faced your own mortality and sat in the doctor's office and heard survival rates, you realize, that applies to me, ... You realize every day is a gift, every day is a blessing.

Sharon Henderson

The administration and staff at Riverview believe investing in the future of our youth by exposing them to educational opportunities and life's possibilities is vital to this community's survival and prosperity, ... We are intent on helping these children build dreams that will lead them to higher education and we need the entire community's assistance to do this.

Keith Sanders

But if you look at regions where people are treated more aggressively, have more procedures and doctors use more resources, is survival better? The answer is no.

Alan Garber

We lost two games (against Highlands) we were in control of and didn't finish. We played awesome baseball. Both teams could flat-out hit. It was a matter of survival. We handled them twice and got in position to win four games and couldn't finish.

Stan Sanchez

That is the behavior people take under the pressure of survival, ... This is misconstrued as looting, as thievery.

Benigno Aguirre

We all knew there was just one way to improve our odds for survival: train, train, train. Sometimes, if your training is properly intense it will kill you. More often -- much, much more often -- it will save your life.

Richard Marcinko

I saw the human-animal bond in another way. It's a survival and a sustenance kind of bond - and that bond is going to be disrupted by bird flu.

Corrie Brown

I think the prospects for the survival of the regime are better than many people think.

Patrick Seale

Then there's ocean survival. That is a very likely an explanatory factor in how come you can have a relatively good return of jacks and suddenly the adults don't materialize out of that.

Stuart Ellis

Most people are intrigued by people who depend totally on God for survival. They don't have a job and a means of income that's consistent. I think (most people) are really taken aback that people are totally trusting in God to provide.

Janet Kellerman

We like to eat because it is necessary for survival, just like sex. We have an appetite for both so that we will engage in those behaviors over and over again.

Sarah Ash

In addition to conducting groundbreaking research, we will provide the nation's leading students with unique opportunities to gain knowledge and develop skills necessary for a career in marine science. We hope our work will raise their awareness of the importance of coral reefs and threats to the long-term survival of the rainforests of the sea.

Philip Renaud

Our research will document the decline of pocket gophers in Georgia, identify remaining habitat and discuss steps to ensure the long-term survival of this species.

Jim Ozier

A year ago, we were in our 15th year of survival, ... Each year we had a little bit less. This year we have a vision for the future and we have the resources that are being laid out over a number of years to achieve that vision.

Steve Lucas

We have sacrificed a great deal for this nation, and now to turn their back on us and cut us off would be un-American. We're fighting for our survival.

Benny Rousselle

For most of history, people have been on the borderline of survival. That's changed dramatically. Survival is certain for almost everyone (in the West). So one of the reasons people are drawn to religion has eroded.

Ronald Inglehart

In most instances, if you are fleeing from a perpetrator, and he fires at you, most likely he won't hit a vital organ. So you still have more of a chance of survival than what you would if they drove you to that second location where they could make sure your dead.

Barry Tate

We are talking about the survival of this country.

Neil Abercrombie

Previous research and an independent scientific review have confirmed our harvest estimates are valid. However, survival outside of hunting seasons and the factors affecting it are not well known in Pennsylvania deer.

Christopher Rosenberry

There is an informal network of people helping each out in poor communities. They have great survival skills. The difference is that, in a poor community, that disaster wipes out that informal safety net.

Robin Lovin

The car club has done similar safety schools for members for many years, ... and now several chapters are on their second or third Street Survival event for the public.

Fred Bell

The historical importance of the survival of these archives cannot be overestimated, ... one of the nation's great historical treasures.

Col. Michael Rossi

Independence is not a whim or an ambition. It is the necessary condition of our survival as an ethnic group.

Aslan Maskhadov

That's how you hone your competitive survival skills. You don't do it by getting all kinds of protection. That's a feather in their cap to be able to do this in a market that's as open as Dubai.

Daniel Kasper

Human diversity makes tolerance more than a virtue; it makes it a requirement for survival. Celebrations of Life, 1981.

Rene Dubos

The irony is that this inward orientation doesn't ensure survival. In fact, it guarantees the opposite -- irrelevance, obsolescence and death.

Craig Cochran

In light of recent weather patterns, it is imperative that the (U.S. Department of Agriculture) offer the emergency CRP haying and grazing program to Texas producers. Availability of forage is literally a matter of survival in the unpredictable and often unforgiving agriculture industry.

Larry Eubank

Our economy runs on the backs of low-wage workers. This is a chance for them to earn a little bit more and have a better chance of survival here.

Nora Hochman

Our efforts must ensure that we meet the families' immediate survival needs without necessarily compromising the long term future of their children.

Changu Mannathoko

Generally, you're not going to see arts until the second or third generation comes of age. That's when people stop struggling for survival. They have time to think about more artistic, aesthetic things.

Roger Tang

She's got a deletion of a certain strand of DNA that produces survival motor neurons. Because she doesn't have that, she basically loses the connection from her nerves to her muscles and the muscles (then) atrophy.

Clint Christopher

If the current tendency prevails, the survival of the nation will be under threat.

Vladimir Putin

Among poor people, there's not any question about women being strong -- even stronger than men -- they work in the fields right along with the men. When your survival is at stake, you don't have these questions about yourself like middle-class women do.

Dolores Huerta

The AI software examined millions of potential antenna designs before settling on a final one. Through a process patterned after Darwin's 'survival of the fittest,' the strongest designs survive and the less capable do not.

Jason Lohn

Nature ultimately determines what will come out. The conditions last year were evidently congenial for good survival.

Pradeep Hirethota

Government is in place for our survival and to hopefully promote justice and peace.

Andrew Matthews

About 50 to 60 percent of our clients report that they were either drunk or high on some type of drug when they contracted HIV. Some of it is due to survival sex, just so they can get a fix.

Victor Mckamie

The secret to the future is not about survival, it's about unity.

Lou Angeli

We never stop investigating. We are never satisfied that we know enough to get by. Every question we answer leads on to another question. This has become the greatest survival trick of our species.

Desmond Morris

So you have a period when the lakes are filling up and you have all this high water conducive to good spawns and good survival for bass.

Gene Wilde

A head injury or major bleed from a motor vehicle accident must be handled within the first hour of injury or the patient has very little chance of survival. The residents of Montgomery County should not accept high death rates as a consequence of living outside Houston.

Jim Becka

If we look at multiple genes, the ethnic variations such as the ones we found are likely to be counterbalanced by other differences. Just because these genes are still evolving, doesn't necessarily mean they make you any smarter. We've evolved genes for selfishness, violence, cruelty û- all of which are in place because they may make survival easier.

Bruce T. Lahn

The survival rate of the newly planted trees has reached 90 percent.

Wang Wei

Our challenge as educators is to make sure children are fed, feel safe, and basic needs are met. Our job is to make it so they're not thinking of survival and can use their energy and attention to learn.

Jody Williams

He was doing things to help cancer survivors and cancer research, nothing to help with the election. ... It's a sad day when someone uses cancer survival as a political football.

Gail Gitcho

The business has a much greater likelihood of survival if you take an approach that emphasizes survival of the business. The focus needs to be less on splitting each asset 50/50 as it is on taking a holistic approach and seeing that some assets will wind up on the wife's side of the ledger and some on the husband's side of ledger.

Gil Mcbride

Anytime people are in very extreme circumstances, dealing with life and death and dealing with survival – I think we can find truth in those moments.

Matthew Fox

Several studies found lower survival among those retiring early and attributed this to poor health status forcing early retirement.

Shan Tsai

Good history is a question of survival. Without any past, we will deprive ourselves of the defining impression of our being.

Ken Burns

A population weakened and exhausted by battling against so many obstacles -- whose needs are never satisfied and desires never fulfilled -- is vulnerable to manipulation and regimentation. The struggle for survival is, above all, an exercise that is hugely time-consuming, absorbing and debilitating. If you create these ''anti-conditions,'' your rule is guaranteed for a hundred years.

Ryszard Kapuscinski

The Great American Health Check is a key part of a nationwide Society campaign to change Americans' behavior to prevent or detect cancer early in an effort to improve survival.

Carolyn Runowicz

They are in you and me; they created us, body and mind; and their preservation is the ultimate rationale for our existence. They have come a long way, those replicators. Now they go by the name of genes, and we are their survival machines.

Richard Dawkins

It's an incredible story of survival.

Louie Fernandez

All you see is the survival rates. If they're born at 28 weeks, 95 percent survive, what's the problem? You don't realize what the survival is, how sick they are.

Jane Perillo

The ability to delude yourself may be an important survival tool.

Jane Wagner

The introduction of HAART has dramatically reduced the incidence of Kaposi's sarcoma and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and improved survival from these cancers for most patients in HIV care.

Sonia Gingues

I was built for this. I got those survival instincts. I'm like Robinson Crusoe, a neighborhood MacGyver.

Clarence Rodriguez

We thought there might be some relationship between telomerase, telomere length and the survival of stem cells, but it was really exciting to see it.

Carol Greider

We didn't ask for this fight. This is about our survival as a people.

Joe Linklater

One of the things we wanted to do is wait and see what our residual herd looks like and let this episode go through a whole cycle and see what's going on with our lambs and lamb survival.

Gary Brundige

My husband and I were thinking that people haven't even had a chance to get that far. Right now, they're focusing on basic survival, on getting clean clothes, a shower and food. We were thinking maybe next week we would get a response.

Lisa Neil

It has yet to be proven that intelligence has any survival value.

Arthur C. Clarke

Certainly, the poor condition of moose in that area has hurt the survival rate of calves. And we're hoping our research and this new study will be able to answer some of those questions.

John Emmerich

I find it extraordinary that a straightforward if inelegant device for ensuring the survival of the species should involve human beings in such emotional turmoil. Does sex have to be taken so seriously?

P. D. James

I think that our continued survival in a land of the giants over the last five years has proved that strategy works.

Michael Small

These conditions made survival impossible.

Xavier Garcia

When you are as a human being in a survival mode, order disappears.

Harry Kim

It's our way of survival. We have to play tough defense to play with the personnel we have. ... I've been doing this 17 years, and every year we had post players. To not have any, we had to change everything. It was a good time for me professionally and for the kids to do that.

Tom Klawitter

Threats to the survival of the regime.

Nong Duc Manh

Save the Children has made great strides to address the immediate emergency situation, but huge challenges remain. We are mounting an urgent effort to meet the winter-survival needs of earthquake-affected children and their families.

Bruce Rasmussen

PG&E has been paying out tremendous amounts of dollars for power costs to out of state generators and we have undercollected over seven -- nearly seven -- billion dollars compared to what our ratepayers are paying. And for our financial survival, we need simply to be able to finance the costs of that power.

Chris Warner

In our trial, women who received part of their chemotherapy via an IP route had a median survival time of 16 months longer than women who received only IV chemotherapy.

Dr. Deborah Armstrong

She spoke what I call survival English. She spoke it well enough that she could communicate all she needed or wanted.

David Meadows

People have to be aware of the dangers and the power of the sea and rivers. Lifebelts may be someone's last chance of survival if they are swept into the sea. For rescuers to find that they are missing must be very frustrating and terrifying.

Royal Society

This was a great dress rehearsal for the Io encounters. We've been wondering how the spacecraft might hold up when it gets close to Io. This latest brush with radiation makes us think that the odds of survival may be fairly good.

Jim Erickson

There are some studies going on now in Missouri on penned birds where they were fed a certain number of lead shot. They've found that if they ingest even a small number of shot, they have a very low survival rate.

Jay Roberson

Pheromones' duty is to respond to certain odor stimuli and pass that information on to the brain. Neurons in the nasal cavity detect pheromones, which then send them on to our instinctual brain which houses our aggression, sex and survival drives. Certain foods, beverages as well as people have high quantities of pheromones.

Burke Owens

His chances of survival are better than if the respiratory center had been damaged, but that still doesn't mean he's going to survive.

Dr. John Martin

It's regrettable what happened, but it's remarkable that the officer survived this encounter. It was equal measures of instinct, training and street survival skills.

Wayne Shelor

It's survival of the funniest -- it's like Darwinian evolution on the comics page.

Chris Browne

We are in a pitched battle for survival in this mid-term election. We have virtually lost the saliency of the cutting-government-spending issue as one of the core issues for the Republican Party. We need to make this issue go back and work for us again.

Rich Bond

Having the ability to make an intelligent decision and not be so fearful -- it's part of survival.

Merium Theiss

The recipe for survival is quality. Those in the low-quality, high-quantity bracket are the ones closing down.

Conceicao Pinhao

The Romans perfected the acquisition of power. But they fought for survival. ... It was never written that they would rule the roost. They had to fight to get there.

Jonathan Stamp

Let's stop doing out-of-context, ad-hoc, survival budgets that take us nowhere except to the next crisis.

Carol Moran

The K6 is in essence their attempt at survival and recapturing market share away from Intel. Right now, Intel dominates the market with an 85 percent share.

Bob Walberg

We have provided for the survival of man against all enemies except his fellow man.

Lyman Lloyd Bryson

It is a big example of survival.

Shaukat Sultan

Though we all know that the survival of the species depends on producing children, up until now we haven't understood how germ cells in the developing embryos decide whether to eventually become the sperm or eggs needed later for adult reproduction. Now we know one way these other cells are talking to germ cells about sex.

Mark Van Doren

Seriously, the first year is survival stage.

Amber Dillon

It used to be survival of the fittest.

Richard Freeland

It is an excellent treatment for acute promyelocytic leukemia, and has dramatically improved the cure rate and survival rate for patients with this disease. It also appears to prevent recurrence of head and neck cancer in those patients that have been treated with surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.

Gary Lewis

Survival is triumph enough.

Harry Crews

Most likely the whole of the front section has been flooded and the staff in those sections died in the first minutes of the accident. In fact we have crossed the critical borderline of survival which we have allocated to the crew according to our guidelines. We've been crossing this threshold yesterday, today and maybe tomorrow.

Mikhail Motsak

African-American women who develop breast cancer are more likely to die from the disease than White women of the same age. Survival rates are worse among African-Americans for colon, prostate and ovarian cancers as well.

Cedric F. Garland

Even if the perpetrator is angered enough by your refusal to go along with his demands, to where he wants to harm you, you still have a chance of survival if you're not under his total control.

Barry Tate

It's a fight for survival today for the smaller community banks. We think we match up well (to our competitors), and this was an opportunity to refocus on what we do best.

Bob Warrington
