The Jewish Agency for Israel has learned important lessons from its previous experience in the initial absorption of immigrants from Ethiopia and is confident that the immigration and absorption of the current wave of immigration from Ethiopia will be successful. (Quote by - Zeev Bielski)

Everything is nothing. Everything is all. All is one. One is inconceivable, infinite. Therefore it is nothing. Everything is matter. Matter is electricity. Electricity is invisible, intangible. Therefore it is nothing. Therefore, everything is nothing. Atoms are made up of electrons and protons. (Protons are also nothing) Fifty billion electrons placed side to side in a straight line would stretch across the diameter of the period at the end of this sentence. Protons are heavier and take up less space. Such an idea is incapable of absorption by the human mind. (Quote by - John Lardner)

If we do see additional absorption of spare labor market capacity, that could mean more rate hikes through the summer. (Quote by - William Sullivan)

I think the real key is absorption. (Quote by - Gordon Von Stroh)

The tantalizing and compelling pursuit of mathematical problems offers mental absorption, peace of mind amid endless challenges, repose in activity, battle without conflict, refuge from the goading urgency of contingent happenings, and the sort of beauty changeless mountains present to sense tried by the present-day kaleidoscope of events. (Quote by - Morris Kline)

This new measurement method combines the chemical selectivity of optical absorption spectroscopy with the atomic-scale resolution of scanning tunneling microscopy. The method literally feels how a molecule changes shape when it absorbs energy. (Quote by - Martin Gruebele)

By far the most dangerous foe we have to fight is apathy - indifference from whatever cause, not from a lack of knowledge, but from carelessness, from absorption in other pursuits, from a contempt bred of self satisfaction. (Quote by - Sir William Osler)

Playing seems to be both disinterested and passionate at the same time; disinterested in that it is not for real, and passionate in the absorption it requires. (Quote by - Oliver Bevan)

These are regarded as simply Western exercises in self-absorption, self-indulgence and self-flagellation, and completely alien to the Chinese situation. (Quote by - Roland Soong)

You don't want to take iron-rich foods with a lot of milk or with a lot of coffee because they decrease the absorption of the iron. (Quote by - Julie Metos)

Absorption in ease is one of the most reliable signs of present or impending decay . (Quote by - Richard Weaver)

There is today an extraordinary interest with the data of modern experience per se. Our absorption in our contemporary historical state is very high right now. It's not altogether unlike a similar situation in seventeenth century Holland, where wealthy merchants wanted their portraits done with all their blemishes included. It is the height of egotism, in a sense, to think even one's blemishes are of significance. So today Americans seem to want their writers to reveal all their weaknesses, their meannesses, to celebrate their very confusions. And they want it in the most direct possible way - they want it served up neat, as it were, without the filtering and generalizing power of fiction. (Quote by - Saul Bellow)

Single molecule absorption spectroscopy is an extremely sensitive technique for analytical chemistry, for measuring electrical properties of molecules, and for studying energy transfer on surfaces. While most molecules don't fluoresce -- limiting the usefulness of single molecule fluorescence spectroscopy -- all molecules absorb, making single molecule absorption spectroscopy a much more general approach. (Quote by - Martin Gruebele)

The total amount of Sh82.369 billion indicates increased absorption capacity of our market. (Quote by - Chris Mwebesa)

Acted drama requires surrender of one's self, sympathetic absorption in the play as it develops. (Quote by - George P. Baker)

The rods have strong absorption characteristics in the near-infrared range. (Quote by - Gary Wiederrecht)

The thinking is that autistic kids have low absorption of nutrients, possibly because so many have inflammation of the digestive system. It just seems they need many more nutrients to get absorption at a decent level. (Quote by - Jim Adams)

The valley's office vacancy rates decreased by 4 percentage points from a year ago, an unheard of drop in such a short period of time. The drop in net absorption in the first quarter is largely the result of a lack of quality office space, not an indication of weak demand. (Quote by - John Restrepo)

Commemoration of John Bosco, Priest, Founder of the Salesian Teaching Order, 1888 In his experience of God, a Christian has a strong sense of his individuality, never of his unity with God. Expressed more sharply, he has a strong sense of the Creator-creature distinction, never of merging or absorption. Or, to put it more sharply still, a Christian has a sense of his moral sin and not just of his metaphysical smallness in the face of the beyond. The dilemma for man is not who he is but what he has done. His predicament is not that he is small, but that he is sinful. (Quote by - Guinness, Os)

It's like in baseball when you get a hold of one. You don't take any of the absorption, you're giving it all. It's good to get those guys once in a while because they are always trying to get us. (Quote by - Mark Campbell)

As long as the job growth continues, we'll continue to see rapid sales of new single-family homes and absorption of apartment units. (Quote by - Charles Heimsath)

Continued economic growth in Las Vegas is driving office absorption and pushing investment activity to new heights. A number of new projects are coming online, but strong tenant demand will keep supply and absorption in balance. (Quote by - Christopher LoBello)
