Bill Gates
There was a time when nails were high-tech. There was a time when people had to be told how to use a telephone. Technology is just a tool. People use tools to improve their lives.
Tom Clancy
Cyber attacks are not what makes the cool war 'cool.' A

Cyber attacks are not what makes the cool war ‘cool.’ As a strategic matter, they do not differ fundamentally from older tools of espionage and sabotage.
Noah Feldman
I use Logic or Reason and a midi keyboard for beats. If it’s gonna have all live instruments in it, I’ll probably use Pro Tools and have the band lay stuff down.
Bernard Tyson, CEO of Kaiser Permanente, sees technology as an augmentation to current healing tools – but not a replacement for human kindness, an integral part of healthcare.
Adam Lashinsky
When you are competing for attention and eyeballs, articulating value and evoking possibility and vision can be powerful tools.
Lewis Howes
Starting at age 6, I was helping install the Formica table tops with that strong glue. My dad was the master. I was the apprentice. I’d be in there working until I’d be telling him, ‘I feel woozy,’ and he’d say, ‘Go outside, son.’ So I’d go organize his tools. He used the best ones made.
Tony Ferguson
I might have created the phrase ‘memory tools’, but people have always found talismans to help them meditate into a state of hypnosis where they can access their past lives.
M. J. Rose
Of course, I love tools. I also love arranging them, to the point where I came up with a name for my organizing metric: first-order retrievability.
Adam Savage
Whenever you’re talking about meaning, basically… I think a lot of the human experience has to do with trying to understand what things mean, and there’s not really any tools to do that unless you’re thinking about it in a more spiritual or philosophical realm.
Win Butler
I’m all for ‘tools,’ not ‘schools,’ of therapy. To me, the schools of therapy compete much like religions, or even cults, all claiming to know the cause and to have the best method for treating people.
David D. Burns
The tools I learned photographing celebrities, now I want to use them to sell ideas.
David LaChapelle
We do not need a heavy theoretical thumb on the scales. What’s important is how the traditional sources of law and legal interpretation – text, structure, history, canons of interpretation, precedent, and other well-established tools of the judicial craft – are prioritized, weighted, and applied.
Diane S. Sykes
There is no governing structure for a pandemic, and little more than vague political pressure to ensure limited access to life-sparing tools and medicines for more than half the world population.
Laurie Garrett
One of the greatest and simplest tools for learning more and growing is doing more.
Washington Irving
The foundations of democratic transition should be laid in accordance with a sincere and committed strategy that is supported by various policy tools, and implemented wisely.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan
Man himself is a mysterious object, and the tools to probe his physiologic nature and function have developed only slowly through the millennia.
Rosalyn Sussman Yalow
Counterintelligence is, in effect, chasing ghosts, which is why the tools used to investigate foreign intelligence activity are secret, like human sources or electronic surveillance.
Asha Rangappa
Long-term economic growth depends mainly on nonmonetary factors such as population growth and workforce participation, the skills and aptitudes of our workforce, the tools at their disposal, and the pace of technological advance. Fiscal and regulatory policies can have important effects on these factors.
Jerome Powell
My best advice to anybody who has a child with a disability is to really find the tools for that person to thrive and find what their true passions are, because the rest will follow.
Zach Anner
Beauty is the ability to utilize the tools provided in order to showcase your spirit in order to show your true soul.
Carmen Carrera
It has not been for nothing that the word has remained man’s principal toy and tool: without the meanings and values it sustains, all man’s other tools would be worthless.
Lewis Mumford
I live a very different life now, with incredible privileges, but looking back I realise that growing up in Russia gave me tools that other people don’t necessarily have – such as the will to push that bit further, to make things happen, to succeed.
Natalia Vodianova
First, I’d like to see the basic tools such as compilers, debuggers, profilers, database interfaces, GUI builders, CAD tools, and so forth fully support the ISO standard.
Bjarne Stroustrup
To compete in a global economy, our students must continue their education beyond high school. To make this expectation a reality, we must give students the tools they need to succeed, including the opportunity to take a college entrance exam.
Jennifer Granholm
The greatest records in the world were made without going to Auto-tune or Pro Tools, or having some click track. If they could do it, why can’t we? Something’s been lost in music. It’s all been over-produced, squashed down, totally compressed.
Michael Buble
Men have become the tools of their tools.
Henry David Thoreau
We continue to see acquisitions as an opportunity area for us. It’s one of the tools that we use to grow.
Dennis Muilenburg
Man must shape his tools lest they shape him.
Arthur Miller
The last 200 years, we’ve had an incredible amount of automation. We have tractors that do the work that horses and people used to do on farms. We don’t dig ditches by hand anymore. We don’t pound tools out of wrought iron. We don’t do bookkeeping with books! But this has not, in net, reduced the amount of employment.
David Autor
I think some actors are very smart and have the tools. They know how to disconnect themselves from the characters, but I think for a lot of them, it’s very difficult.
Raphael Bob-Waksberg
Consumer technology and medical tools have been created to benefit our daily lives. Without self-regulation, though, the industry could be at risk of potentially halting years of innovation and stunting growth in this field.
Ariel Garten
Under the cover of encryption, terror masterminds provide recruits with the tactics and tools necessary to carry out attacks using small arms and explosives. None of this requires any overseas travel.
Tom Cotton
One of the ironies of a conference dedicated to all thi

One of the ironies of a conference dedicated to all things digital and virtual is that the best ways to connect with people are surprisingly old-school. Social media tools can improve the odds of a serendipitous encounter at SXSW, but old-fashioned hustle, palm-pressing and – above all – creativity go a long way.
Ryan Holmes
I bought an audio technician mic and Pro Tools SE, the demo version and was recording in the basement.
The things I discovered when writing ‘Line of Duty’ were the tools you have available to write a thriller.
Jed Mercurio
As a fiction writer, my favorite tools are my imagination and the peculiar opportunities offered by different points of view.
Stewart O’Nan
When computers came along, I felt for the first time that I had the proper tools for the kind of theoretical work I wanted to do. So I moved over to that, and that got me into psychology.
Herbert A. Simon
There is common ground we can look towards and hopefully make this country better for all of us. That is what Joe for America means. I want more jobs. I want veterans to have better benefits and not have them taken away. I want people to succeed in this country and have the tools to do so.
Joe Wurzelbacher
BDS attempts to use economic tools to boycott Israeli goods and services and punish individuals and entities supporting Israel. It attempts to use harassment and intimidation to turn Israel’s supporters against the country.
Lee Zeldin
We in Congress need to support the American forces in every conceivable way, giving them the tools to continue to convert, capture or kill terrorists and the time to equip the Iraqi security forces.
Bob Inglis
A part of growing up in this international world is understanding and being prepared and having tools to adapt outside of the small environment that you may have come from. That’s what education is all about.
Lamman Rucker
I believe it is essential for our planetary future to develop tools that can change the consciousness which has created the crisis that we are in.
Stanislav Grof
Our world faces many grave challenges: Widening conflicts and inequality. Extreme weather and deadly intolerance. Security threats – including nuclear weapons. We have the tools and wealth to overcome these challenges. All we need is the will.
Antonio Guterres
Poverty is about people lacking the tools they need to get on in life. And solving it is about tackling educational failure, antisocial behaviour, debt problems and addiction, and of course it’s about work.
Theresa May
I loved my computer; it’s a tool. A tool increases your mechanical advantages. It allows you to use your strengths and talents to greater advantage, and that’s what tools do, and that’s what my computer does for me. It’s not my toy, it’s my tool.
Jok Church
I don’t think most people are aware of the exotic and extreme tools at the disposal of the most powerful and wealthy men of America when they are bent at silencing accusations against them.
Ronan Farrow
Teachers are expected to reach unattainable goals with inadequate tools. The miracle is that at times they accomplish this impossible task.
Haim Ginott
And so I put down some of the things that he said, about keeping your tools sharpened and not letting them lie on the ground where they get hurt or get abused and dirty and can’t find them. And some thoughts about how his father used to do things.
Bruce Nauman
The second stream of material that is going to come out of this project is a programming environment and a set of programming tools where we really want to focus again on the needs of the newbie. This environment is going to have to be extremely user-friendly.
Guido van Rossum
A good engineering interview will include some set of difficult problems to solve. It might even require that the candidate write a short program. In addition, it will test the candidate’s knowledge of the tools she uses in great depth.
Ben Horowitz
I have high hopes that GIS will become increasingly relevant for landscape architects as we make the tools easier to use for the design process of just inventory and mapping.
Jack Dangermond
The aggressive use of wiretaps is important: It shows that we are targeting white-collar insider-trading rings with the same powerful investigative tools that have worked so successfully against the mob and drug cartels.
Preet Bharara
Sponsorship is about putting your name and reputation on the line for someone else. It could be as simple as recommending someone for a new role, yet it’s one of the most powerful cultural tools any organization has.
Lynne Doughtie
Apple has an opening to say, ‘The tools we are selling to you will enable you to do things rather than do things for you.’ Google’s vision is tools that will do things for you.
Evgeny Morozov
If 8chan comes back online, it will be done when 8chan develops additional tools to counter illegal content under United States law.
Jim Watkins
I think that writing texts, publishing texts, selling texts in a physical book store is one of the important tools for breeding this new generation.
Alexander Mamut
I think if you don’t give people the tools and the expectations for success, and yet hold them to some value, then you’re difficult to work with.
Brian Krzanich
My overall worldview has never changed: that America has and must maintain the strongest military in the world, that we must lead the international community to confront threats and challenges together, and that we must use all tools of American power to protect our citizens and our interests.
Chuck Hagel
You want a kitchen put in, I’m your girl. I’m very handy, and I love a practical challenge. I fit all the stereotypes of the lesbian with power tools.
Sandi Toksvig
All our work, our whole life is a matter of semantics, because words are the tools with which we work, the material out of which laws are made, out of which the Constitution was written. Everything depends on our understanding of them.
Felix Frankfurter
Worry and reasoning are two of Satan’s most successful tools. He’ll get us started with one negative thought and then sit back and watch us finish ourselves off.
Joyce Meyer
I love my fish spatula so much. I don’t have many specialty tools, but that’s a favorite of mine.
Marcela Valladolid
One of the reasons why I went to the Yale School of Drama is because I felt that I was acting off of instinct, but sometimes that is not reliable. When you’re not feeling it, what do you do? So, going to grad school was about getting the tools to just use my instrument to the best of my ability.
Lupita Nyong’o
Pell Grants are, and have been, critically important to

Pell Grants are, and have been, critically important tools in making higher education a possibility for lower- and middle-income students.
Christopher Dodd
Tempura chefs are sort of like the Jedi of the cooking world: They must deftly perform with the utmost skill and precision, using extremely dangerous tools, all while maintaining a calm, serene demeanor. It is an elegant technique, from a more civilized time.
J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
I’m not against technology, but all tools should be used to their best advantage. We should be spending our time on things that have staying power, instead of on the latest thought of the latest blogger – and then moving on quickly to the next blogger.
J. I. Packer
We must continue to ensure law enforcement has the necessary tools to combat terrorism here at home. We must also work with our allies and provide our military with the weapons and protective gear they need to defeat terrorism abroad.
Timothy Murphy
When we talk about justice in America we’re really talking about justice brought about by the people, not by judges who are tools of the establishment or prosecutors who are are equally tools of the establishment or the wardens or the police officers.
William Kunstler
New standards for safety are now in place and Canada has helped provide tools and techniques that were needed. Technologies like these are innovative and represent great achievements for us.
Marc Garneau
I did not defund the police as mayor. I increased the budget. If we want the best and brightest men and women to protect us, we better darn well give them the tools, the training, and the support necessary to be successful.
Kevin Faulconer
We’re not telling you that you need a concealer. We’re providing a concealer in case you want it. We’re trying to give you the tools to be able to make whatever decision you want.
Emily Weiss
If you look over the history of cinema, changes happen when directors embrace new tools and technology and think outside the box.
Sean Baker
I like doing things where I can get dirty, work with my hands, and use power tools. Last weekend, I did some grouting.
Nathan Fillion
How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!
Samuel Adams
We’re living in a tremendously new landscape, and the possibility of what can be created is immense. These tools of the moving image have a relatively short history in art, and what we can do with them is still largely unknown. We are still innovating and finding ways to tell stories.
Doug Aitken
There’s an ideological belief on the left that you should not use nonpartisan tools.
Steve Hilton
I have argued for years that we do not have a health care system in America. We have a disease-management system – one that depends on ruinously expensive drugs and surgeries that treat health conditions after they manifest rather than giving our citizens simple diet, lifestyle and therapeutic tools to keep them healthy.
Andrew Weil
The content of most textbooks is perishable, but the tools of self-directedness serve one well over time.
Albert Bandura
But in the old days, visual artists used to fall into two distinct categories: those of us who created images with cameras and those of us who applied stuff onto other stuff, with brushes or other tools.
Buffy Sainte-Marie
For years, I wrote songs to try to get cuts or try to have hits or try to appease a label or to be famous. I was learning a lot of valuable tools about structure and how to articulate. I was getting really good at that.
Walker Hayes
Nobody teaches you to be a father. Nobody teaches you to be a husband. Nobody teaches you how to be a star. You have to learn to work with the tools.
David Soul
The more closely you get in touch with your dreams, the more able you are to make them real. The more vividly you consider how you want your world to be, the more real and effective tools you will have for making it so.
Ralph Marston
We actually have the tools in the life sciences to achieve anything that you have the audacity to envision. I just hope to live long enough not to die.
Bill Maris
We become what we behold. We shape our tools and then our tools shape us.
Marshall McLuhan
My office is just overflowing with books about witches and books about 17th-century animal husbandry and agricultural farm tools from the period.
Robert Eggers
I learned that the first technology appeared in the form of stone tools, 2.6 million years ago. First entertainment comes evidence from flutes that are 35,000 years old. And evidence for first design comes 75,000 years old – beads. And you can do the same with your genes and track them back in time.
Zeresenay Alemseged
Looking at the world from other species’ points of view is a cure for the disease of human self-importance. You suddenly realize that consciousness – which we value and we consider the crowning achievement of nature, human consciousness – is really just another set of tools for getting along in the world.
Michael Pollan
My tools are musicians, effects, things like that.
Mike Patton
As I got a little older, I discovered Lori McKenna and Patty Griffin and found out how many other tools we have as songwriters, that there’s storytelling and there’s ear candy, and that there is a place where they meet, too, and both of those women are really good at doing that.
Ashley McBryde
We have the tools to be a stronger nation than we were before Sept. 11, 2001. We have learned valuable lessons about the danger of growing enemies and the importance of developing alliances.
MJ Hegar
One of the perks of being a psychologist is access to tools that allow you to carry out the injunction to know thyself.
Steven Pinker
I have three tools at my disposal – my whistle, my body language and my talk. It is a question of how I marry them up to try to get the players around to my way of thinking.
Alan Lewis
‘Fury’ whetted my appetite for a bigger canvas and this idea of world creation. You can do amazing things as a filmmaker if you have the proper tools, and those are time and money.
David Ayer
My tools, my medium, include pictures and live actors.
Gavin Hood
If you walk into any bookstore, you can look at the new

If you walk into any bookstore, you can look at the newsstands and see which magazines are nationally-distributed, and you recognize certain names. Same with television. With the blogsphere, however, you actually have to dig, and know how to use multiple tools to figure out whom you should be speaking to.
Tim Ferriss
Many of us who have experienced psychedelics feel very much that they are sacred tools. They open spiritual awareness.
Stanislav Grof
Most parents’ goal is to launch their children into the world with all the tools they need to make it on their own.
Deborah Raney
Pro Tools was invented to quicken the recording process.
Alex Ebert
My best advice is to not start in PowerPoint. Presentation tools force you to think through information linearly, and you really need to start by thinking of the whole instead of the individual lines.
Nancy Duarte
Wikis and social networking are just tools.
Jimmy Wales
Consumers are empowered by Yelp and tools like it: before, when they had a bad experience, they didn’t have much recourse. They could fume, but often nothing else other than tell their friends.
Jeremy Stoppelman
Technology tools such as laptops are the kind of help that we need. A program that provides laptops for all youngsters would close a gap that most of us are not aware of, or will not admit to, which is a tremendous gap in the poor communities.
Major Owens
For the vast majority of world history, human life – both culture and biology – was shaped by scarcity. Food, clothing, shelter, tools, and pretty much everything else had to be farmed or fabricated, at a very high cost in time and energy.
Martha Beck
For many children, the library represents their only access to books, reading, and the Internet outside of their home. If you think about how far behind a child would be without access to these fundamental tools – tools that are vital to successful employment later in life – it’s a travesty.
Karin Slaughter
So, one of the biggest things about YouTube versus any other platform is the built-in audience and discovery tools.
Marques Brownlee
To some people, Common Core means what it actually is, which is a set of standards. That’s not necessarily most people. To other people, Common Core is a new curriculum that’s been implemented at their school that they don’t understand. It’s applying new teaching tools.
Campbell Brown
I don’t think there was a thunderclap or a divine spark that suddenly made one species smart. You can see, in our ancestors, there was a gradual expansion of the brain; there was an expansion of the complexity of tools.
Steven Pinker
Transactive memory works best when you have a sense of how your partners’ minds work – where they’re strong, where they’re weak, where their biases lie. I can judge that for people close to me. But it’s harder with digital tools, particularly search engines.
Clive Thompson
You can have all the tools in the world but if you don’t genuinely believe in yourself, it’s useless.
Ken Jeong
In Philadelphia, our public safety, poverty reduction, health and economic development all start with education. We can’t grow the middle class if we don’t give our kids the tools they need to innovate and invent.
Michael Nutter
I use Pro Tools version 9 LE at home and I take that on the road with me.
Jim Root
We need to defend against weaknesses within and enemies without, using the tools of civil society and hard power. We don’t have to pick one over the other.
Stanley A. McChrystal
There is a lovable quality about the actual tools. One feels so kindly to the thing that enables the hand to obey the brain. Moreover, one feels a good deal of respect for it; without it the brain and the hand would be helpless.
Gertrude Jekyll
Not only does Yahoo! have a unique franchise, it increasingly has industry-leading tools, technology and, most importantly, people.
Jerry Yang
The ability to collect, analyze, triangulate and visualize vast amounts of data in real time is something the human race has never had before. This new set of tools, often referred by the lofty term ‘Big Data,’ has begun to emerge as a new approach to addressing some of the biggest challenges facing our planet.
Rick Smolan
We’re living at this funny time, where we’re all urged to express ourselves as unique individuals, but on the other hand, we share a limited set of tools for doing that. It’s easy to feel like nothing more than the sum of your consumer choices.
Alexandra Kleeman
The finest workers in stone are not copper or steel tools, but the gentle touches of air and water working at their leisure with a liberal allowance of time.
Henry David Thoreau
The only thing I knew how to do without a lot of money was repairing tools. I actually started making and repairing tools for machines.
Stef Wertheimer
Providing the tools for a great start in life will yield dividends for generations to come.
Kay Ivey
Buddhism has helped me understand my defects and has given me the tools to combat them.
Roberto Baggio
I don’t want to wear my compositional tools on my sleeve.
Lou Harrison
I’ve always been very upfront about the way I write, and I’ve always used the tools humorists use, such as exaggeration.
David Sedaris
The best way to do that is to pick up a new instrument or an instrument that you don’t typically write on and see where it takes you. Whether it’s using an acoustic guitar, or piano, or electronics as tools, all of these lead to creating different types of songs and I used all of these methods for this record.
Serj Tankian
It’s easy to assume that just because you make something in small volumes, not using many tools, that there is integrity and care – that is a false assumption.
Jonathan Ive
It’s fine to have social media that connects us with old friends, but we need tools that help us discover new people as well.
Ethan Zuckerman
One of the most important tools in critical thinking ab

One of the most important tools in critical thinking about numbers is to grant yourself permission to generate wrong answers to mathematical problems you encounter. Deliberately wrong answers!
Daniel Levitin
Humor and laughter – not necessarily derogatory derision – are my pet tools. This may come from my general philosophy of never taking the world too seriously – for fear of dying of boredom.
Marcel Duchamp
I never fight with a man who’s carrying power tools.
Drew Scott
When you’re in a songwriting class, and you write a song, and you hand it in to a teacher to grade, I’m still going to say that it’s a really awesome song whether I got an A or a D. I learned to stick to my guns and take the tools as tools and not as rules.
Madi Diaz
I have Pro Tools on my computer, and I make CDs all the time.
Zooey Deschanel
When I was an institutional broker in a former life, I was a believer in the merits of using technical analysis. I found that it was a very useful tool that complemented the much more mainstream tools generically referred to as fundamental analysis.
Rick Santelli
I feel like visual art, the culinary arts, the theatrical arts – the medium changes, the tools that you use to tell whatever the story changes, but you’re still all telling stories.
Black Thought
We’ve been finding that when you empower engineers, scientists, and coders, they respond by creating new tools to empower physicians, patients, and parents.
Kathleen Sebelius
Every child should try everything: sport, music, art, mathematics; they can do it all. Copying and competition are now seen as twin evils, but they are both useful tools.
Tony Buzan
With film, you have very limited tools to convey subjectivity – voiceover, the camera’s point of view, good acting – but even the very best actor in the world is crude by comparison with what you can do in a written paragraph.
William Boyd
There’s a confusion sometimes with the laptop being the current tools and where electronic music initially comes from.
Thomas Bangalter
The way that Lucasfilm used ILM was George never restricted his thinking to things that he knew could be executed with the tools at the time. He would write what he thought would be cool and what he wanted from a storytelling standpoint with the assumption that, ‘Well, they’ll figure it out!’
John Knoll
One of the most powerful tools for empowering individuals and communities is making certain that any individual who wants to receive a quality education can do so.
Christine Gregoire
The best thing we can do is give students the tools for constructing their own identities – powerful new tools like African fractals – and then just get out of the way.
Ron Eglash
There are few more powerful tools for promoting stability than the institution of marriage.
Iain Duncan Smith
It’s well known I’m a Scientologist, and that has helped me to find that inner peace in my life and it’s something that has given me great stability and tools that I use.
Tom Cruise
I’m thrilled to partner with Gillette to help men understand what women want. If we’re able to give them that information, and Gillette can give them the tools to get there, then we both win, and that’s very exciting.
Hannah Simone
If you really want to act, I say get in class. Every kind of class. Put as many tools in that tool belt, because once you get out there, the real world doesn’t sugarcoat much!
J. R. Ramirez
We must continue to work hard on the federal level, to make sure that our local law enforcement and communities have the tools and resources they need to fight this war against methamphetamine, and keep our kids safe.
Mark Kennedy
Drew never argues with me because I carry very heavy power tools all the time.
Jonathan Scott
I don’t use tools to create things, but I use them to realize things.
Ma Yansong
The tools Facebook provides make discrimination easy. Facebook has monopoly profit margins, so it could easily provide real staffing to protect against discrimination, if it wanted to. It doesn’t want to.
Zephyr Teachout
Common hedging techniques include shorting stocks, buying put options, writing call options, and various types of leverage and paired transactions. While I do reserve the right to use these tools if and when appropriate, my firm opinion is that the best hedge is buying an appropriately safe and cheap stock.
Michael Burry
Hopefully this movie will help people understand that if a child is never given the tools to know how to love others and love and respect themselves, this is what happens.
Jami Gertz
Twitter and Facebook are brilliant tools, the journalistic uses of which are still being plumbed. They are great for disseminating interesting material. They are useful for gathering information, including from places that are inaccessible.
Bill Keller
You have certain writing tools but generally creating something from nothing makes one quite mad and Cynthia and I are quite mad you know.
Barry Mann
One of the greatest and simplest tools for learning more and growing is doing more.
Washington Irving
Words are the basic tools, if you are a writer.
James Houston
Teaching is the only major occupation of man for which we have not yet developed tools that make an average person capable of competence and performance. In teaching we rely on the ‘naturals’, the ones who somehow know how to teach.
Peter Drucker
Before I started training and eating properly, I was never bigger than a big size 10. I always liked my body, I was always body confident. But if you had given me the tools to change it, I absolutely would have. Why? Because it’s fun.
Chloe Madeley
Tolerance, compromise, understanding, acceptance, patience – I want those all to be very sharp tools in my shed.
CeeLo Green
Technology is nothing. What's important is that you hav

Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.
Steve Jobs
The expectations of life depend upon diligence; the mechanic that would perfect his work must first sharpen his tools.
What makes a lot of sense is that, while people are incarcerated, give them the tools they need to be able to have a productive, lucrative living when they leave so they can provide for their families and break that cycle of recidivism.
Valerie Jarrett
Personally, I look forward to better tools for analyzing C++ source code.
Bjarne Stroustrup
To create characters, one must build background. And one of the tools we use is improvisation.
Harvey Keitel
Carbon-carbon bond formation reactions employing organoboron compounds and organic electrophiles have recently been recognized as powerful tools for the construction of new organic compounds.
Akira Suzuki
The basic idea of email has remained essentially unchanged since the first networked message was sent in 1971. And while email is great for one-on-one, formal correspondence, there are far better tools for collaboration.
Ryan Holmes
With population pressures, urbanization, and modernization encroaching, we’re in a race against time. Why not use the most advanced tools we have to map, quantify, and protect our past?
Sarah Parcak
Our long-range predictions – especially those which anticipate extreme-weather events – rely on an assumption that the future will be similar to the past. Lose that, and we lose the tools that have allowed us to prepare for such eventualities.
Hannah Fry
The tools and technologies we’ve developed are really the first few drops of water in the vast ocean of what AI can do.
Fei-Fei Li
The tools and technologies we’ve developed are really the first few drops of water in the vast ocean of what AI can do.
Fei-Fei Li
How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!
Samuel Adams
I understand the Second Amendment. I respect the Second Amendment. I think we need to use common sense tools to keep the American people safe, to keep our streets safe.
Eric Holder
‘Girls’ was my first audition. I’d just taken an audition class, and I was excited to implement those tools.
Allison Williams
I don’t see any division between the comic and the tragic. I feel like I’m writing about serious things, and humour is one of my tools. It’s not contrived, just part of my world, part of the way things are to me.
Miriam Toews
I am very proud of my mom and consider her the most courageous woman I know. With perseverance, sacrifice and hard work, she raised a family of Olympic athletes and gave us the tools and the spirit to succeed. That is something that my brothers and I will always be thankful for.
Diana Lopez
I’m the type of person that doesn’t like to wait for people to do things for me, and I never want to feel stuck. Why sit around and be like, ‘I wish my label would book me some studio time,’ if I can just buy my own studio equipment and figure out how to run Pro Tools and record it myself?
Now it’s easy for someone to set up a storefront and reach the entire world in very modest ways. So these technologies that we thought would dis-intermediate traditional sellers gave more people the tools to be sellers. It also changed the balance of power between sellers and buyers.
Daniel H. Pink
I think filmmakers in general are, as the tools become more and more advanced, you’re able to tell stories in a way that I think is more realistic. The technology just wasn’t there up until pretty recently, and it takes a bit of time for the normal artistic way of approaching something to become a mainstream thing.
Neill Blomkamp
We, as adults, have not given children the tools to grow up healthy in our society.
Maimouna Doucoure
I was a huge fan of video games; I wanted to write something, and I saw the tools at my fingertips to upload a video to my audience, and that’s why I’m here today. I think that freedom and the lack of gatekeepers, combined with people’s passion, is what really the true spirit of Internet geekdom is about.
Felicia Day
I do have a little setup at home. I use Pro Tools and a Neumann mic. Neumann’s are my favorite.
We were given clear concrete tools. The course did a great job demystifying the art of fiction writing and fostering confidence. The instructor brought complex concepts down to earth. I will miss coming here every week.
Miguel Ferrer
Instead of making people victims of people who are successful, we should be telling people, ‘Look, you are having a hard time, I feel bad for you. Let’s look at what you’re doing, let’s teach you how to succeed. Let’s give you the tools to succeed as opposed to turning everybody into victims.
Jon Lovitz
One day, my bike tire broke miles from home and I found a way to fix it. That’s what I learned: Even if you don’t have all the tools, you can improvise.
Tony Ferguson
Sponsorship is about putting your name and reputation on the line for someone else. It could be as simple as recommending someone for a new role, yet it’s one of the most powerful cultural tools any organization has.
Lynne Doughtie
Every one of us deserves the right to have a great education that’s going to prepare us and give us the tools that we need in order to thrive outside of school. It’s our government’s responsibility to make sure that everyone is included.
Carmen Carrera
Your primary tools, as an actor, are observation and imagination. You can pretty much get everything you need from that, and you do. It brings back that element of pretend.
Stephen Lang
You have to have a work ethic, and you have to be educated in what you’re doing. You have to take it seriously. It doesn’t mean that everything you do has to be serious. But you’ve got to have the tools.
Jakob Dylan
We will use all lawful tools at our disposal, and that includes authorities under the renewed PATRIOT Act. We firmly believe that our intelligence gathering tools must enable us to collect the information we need to protect the American people.
John O. Brennan
We need financial regulation that allows businesses and the banks they use to have access to the tools that help keep prices of consumer goods – like groceries and home heating oil – steady, while ensuring that the taxpayers are never again on the hook for the types of wild bets that helped crash the economy in 2008.
Jim Himes
We use tools such as email, not just as a way to keep i

We use tools such as email, not just as a way to keep in daily touch with family members who live in other cities, but also as a way to keep in touch with staff and members of the public.
Tipper Gore
You have to know what your talent is, and you have to exploit it. And then, while you’re exploiting that talent, you find ways and tools to elevate other sides of you that are weaker.
The Miz
Google attracts so much talent, it can afford to look beyond traditional metrics, like G.P.A. For most young people, though, going to college and doing well is still the best way to master the tools needed for many careers.
Thomas Friedman
Drones can be useful tools, and I am all about useful tools. One of my mottos is ‘the right tool for the right job.’
Martha Stewart
Looking ahead, we’re doubling down on our commitment to building the most advanced tools and technology to take our creators and players into the metaverse of the future.
David Baszucki
When you’re younger – duh – you don’t really have the tools to deal with certain things in your life.
Scott Ian
Every role requires its own set of tools, and I think, because of that, it is very hard to ever feel totally prepared or totally able.
Zoe Kazan
Body language and tone of voice – not words – are our most powerful assessment tools.
Christopher Voss
My only focus is to try to assess and to provide the players with better tools to perform.
Mauricio Pochettino
Our commitment to coaches will be realized via TeamCarew, a grassroots marketing program that will provide them with insight and tools to teach the art and science of hitting.
Rod Carew
I can use most of the tools that every American teenager can master. Maybe not all of them.
Rand Paul
Body language and tone of voice – not words – are our most powerful assessment tools.
Christopher Voss
If you ask me what I’d rather be doing, well, I’d rather be home in California, watching TV, polishing my tools and working around the ranch.
Dick Dale
Social media is a very, very powerful tool. It also gives power to tools.
Chris Young
One in five of our customers books for business. But it’s scaling very fast. As a result, we have tools for medium or small-sized companies to allow them set their price and give basic reporting functionality.
Gillian Tans
If we talk about literacy, we have to talk about how to enhance our children’s mastery over the tools needed to live intelligent, creative, and involved lives.
Danny Glover
When I was in high school and college, I thought everybody could think in pictures. And my first inkling to my thinking was even different was when I was in college and I read an article about, you know, some scientist said that the caveman could not have designed tools until they had language.
Temple Grandin
The pop-music video is one of the most powerful communication tools we have. Most people have access to a phone, and you can click a video and absorb it in three minutes. If it’s potent enough, you can take in the message or have some sort of experience in multiple dimensions, the music with the image.
I like the skill set required to be an outdoorsman – to cook food over fire and to climb rocks without ropes, to move around using nothing but yourself and maybe some rudimentary tools.
Ryan Paevey
It’s always easy to look at either the politics of division or fear as effective tools in politics, but ultimately, even though they can be effective tools to help you get elected, they hinder your ability to actually get the job of building a better future for this country, for this community, done.
Justin Trudeau
Computers are very powerful tools, but in the simulated world of the computer, everything has to be calculated.
Margaret Wertheim
On the back end, software programming tools and Internet-based services make it easy to launch new global software-powered start-ups in many industries – without the need to invest in new infrastructure and train new employees.
Marc Andreessen
Abstraction is one of the greatest visionary tools ever invented by human beings to imagine, decipher, and depict the world.
Jerry Saltz
The tools of ‘The Prosperous Heart’ help people to embrace the life that they actually have, where they often find that they already have ‘enough.’
Julia Cameron
I trained as a stage actor and was given a lot of technical tools to play with.
Alan Tudyk
Apparently tired of waiting for clear direction from Congress, the people of Puerto Rico have used the tools provided by their own local constitution to schedule a vote for Dec. 13 on the status of the island.
Dick Thornburgh
I think the hard thing about all these tools is that it takes a fair amount of effort to become proficient.
Bill Joy
You learn a lot in life but there are a lot of tools and resources in school that help you grow professionally and personally for whatever goal you may want to achieve.
Bad Bunny
My list of basic tools is a partial answer to the question about what has changed: Over the past few years, large numbers of programmers have come to depend on elaborate tools to interface code with systems facilities.
Bjarne Stroustrup
My great-grandfather Melvin had been a carpenter – so was my father – and they taught me the value of tools: saws, hammers, chisels, files and rulers. It all dealt with conciseness and precision. It eliminated guesswork. One has to know his tools, so he doesn’t work against himself.
Yusef Komunyakaa
My work in government has flowed from the fundamental idea of personal empowerment. It’s about giving people the tools they need to pave their own way.
James Langevin
Our counterterrorism tools do not exist in a vacuum. Th

Our counterterrorism tools do not exist in a vacuum. They are stronger and more sustainable when the American people understand and support them. They are weaker and less sustainable when the American people do not.
John O. Brennan
Thanks to the rise of cloud computing, collaboration tools are becoming increasingly affordable, allowing even the smallest firms to implement enterprise-grade solutions that can significantly improve communication lines between employees and customers.
Jean-Philippe Courtois
Though we endow them with human features – heads, faces, heels, toes – golf clubs are profoundly inhuman tools.
Steve Rushin
My earliest books focus almost entirely on psychological tools to help readers employ effective commonsense approaches to problems. There are no references to God or a higher self in the first 15 or so years of my publishing history.
Wayne Dyer
We’ve got over 1 million merchants who have claimed their businesses on Foursquare, running specials and doing other things. What we want to do is take these tools used by the 50-100 national retailers and make them accessible to our 1 million merchants. Then you’ve got something really powerful.
Dennis Crowley
We have finished the job, what shall we do with the tools?
Haile Selassie
The tools used by economists to analyze business firms are too abstract and speculative to offer any guidance to entrepreneurs and managers in their constant struggle to bring novel products to consumers at low cost.
Ronald Coase
With Epic MegaGrants, we’re reinvesting in all areas of the Unreal Engine development community and also committing to accelerate the open sourcing of content, tools, and knowledge.
Tim Sweeney
Many who think they are workers in politics are really merely tools.
Lord Salisbury
Technologists provide tools that can improve people’s lives. But I want to be clear that I don’t think technology by itself improves people’s lives, since often I’m criticized for being too pro-technology. Unless there’s commensurate ethical and moral improvements to go along with it, it’s for naught.
Jaron Lanier
By 2025, we can expect the world to be completely digital. Paper books will be a thing of the past. Education will be delivered through analytics-based assessment tools and adaptive learning platforms.
Osman Rashid
There’s nothing really connecting the behavior of the Nile, metallurgy, and the behavior of prices except that I had the mathematical tools to explain them.
Benoit Mandelbrot
The people who designed the tools that make the Net run had their own ideas for the future.
Tim Berners-Lee
Computers are magnificent tools for the realization of our dreams, but no machine can replace the human spark of spirit, compassion, love, and understanding.
Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.
It has been aptly noted that web browsers are less Internet navigation tools than they are ebooks with highly diverse content.
Michael A. Stackpole
Truly affordable but high-quality health care tools and services are the only means by which quality health care can be provided to all.
Muhammad Yunus
I hope that all new filmmakers see that the Internet and social media are helpful tools in establishing a fan base as well as being able to interact with your fans.
Lloyd Kaufman
To achieve policy stability and certainty, we need to establish a meaningful price on carbon and cut the billions of dollars spent each year on fossil-fuel subsidies, along with well-structured financial tools and rules.
Paul Polman
I use my non-stick pans as very specific tools. They’re my egg pans. They live by themselves, in a cabinet. They go in their own home. They will never get scratched.
Brad Leone
This is the front edge of the spiritual, psychological movement and is where the tools of psychology have finally come together to create a mass healing. I think spiritual psychology is the next wave.
Kenny Loggins
When I listen to music these days, and I hear Pro Tools and drums that sound like a machine – it kinda sucks the life out of music.
Dave Grohl
There is no need to pose for anything – you just walk straight and strong and be clear. We are all born with unique characteristics and we have to stick to that. Yes, use the tools to enhance it, but we shouldn’t be hiding behind them. That’s what style is about.
Bibhu Mohapatra
Some people just don’t have the tools to deal with the stuff life throws at them.
Rebecca Hall
Yeah I am superstitious. I use certain divot tools or ball markers and will change from time to time depending on how I’m playing.
Justin Thomas
Disease and ill health are caused largely by damage at the molecular and cellular level, yet today’s surgical tools are too large to deal with that kind of problem.
Ralph Merkle
The truth is, you cannot run a political campaign like a tech startup. Technology is a field that fetishizes disruption. The old ways are suspect, and we place an almost irrational trust on new tools. That’s fine for developing games, but it was a failing playbook for politics.
Brianna Wu
Writers displace their anxiety on to the tools of the trade. It’s better to say that you haven’t got the right pencil than to say you can’t write, or to blame your computer for losing your chapter than face up to your feeling that it’s better lost.
Hilary Mantel
You have to remember that not every creature that was evolving left behind its skull or its tools for our convenience tens of thousands of years later. Most bones or most tools rot or get buried and are never found again.
Steven Pinker
For all the social changes in China can be traced to their early beginnings in the days when the new tools or vehicles of commerce and locomotion first brought the Chinese people into unavoidable contact with the strange ways and novel goods of the Western peoples.
Hu Shih
The same basic tools we’ve used for thousands of years to connect with people, to draw them in and to hold their attention will always work, even if we’re telling our stories 140 characters at a time.
Shawn Amos
As a story writer, you have work with sharp but relatively small tools, the picks of metaphor, the shovel blade of images, the trowel of point of view, and then you delicately lift and brush in the revision with love and care knowing that one slip, and you might damage an extremely delicate thing.
David Means
I have this hope that there is a better way. Higher-lev

I have this hope that there is a better way. Higher-level tools that actually let you see the structure of the software more clearly will be of tremendous value.
Guido van Rossum
Just as our roads and bridges are overdue for investment, so is the infrastructure for scientific research; that is, the body of scientific thought and the tools for searching through it.
Oren Etzioni
Most of us who become experimental physicists do so for two reasons; we love the tools of physics because to us they have intrinsic beauty, and we dream of finding new secrets of nature as important and as exciting as those uncovered by our scientific heroes.
Luis Walter Alvarez
From my time at Nokia, I’ve seen the 99% positive and occasionally negative impact that communication tools can have on people.
Jan Chipchase
I really believe in giving tools and resources to other creators so that they can create beautiful videos.
Michelle Phan
I think the Fed is not designed to have effective tools to deal with the economy. It should settle for just controlling the money supply. And – if it insists, it can worry about inflation.
Jeremy Grantham
For me, from day one, I don’t think I realized that I was considered undersized, but I knew I was good. I had certain tools in my toolbox that other guys didn’t have, like agility, quickness and explosiveness.
Austin Aries
Women leave my seminars with a level of confidence they didn’t have before. They can go out, meet people, start conversations and have a good time. They don’t have to worry about waiting for someone great to come along as they know they have the tools to make it happen.
Matthew Hussey
That the way to achieve higher standards of living for all is through science and technology, taking advantage of better tools, methods and organization.
Charles E. Wilson
Dating is for tools.
Neil Strauss
I think companies need to put up tools that put privacy and security in the hands of their users and make it easy to understand those tools. In Google’s case, two-step verification is a perfect example of this.
Jared Cohen
Our Age of Anxiety is, in great part, the result of trying to do today’s job with yesterday’s tools and yesterday’s concepts.
Marshall McLuhan
You may have a small network, but growing that network has become easier with the use of social tools. LinkedIn, Conspire, even Facebook and Twitter allow you to grab branches that may have previously seemed out of reach.
David Cohen
I joined as chief scientist in October of 2009. The company is a URL-shortener and content-sharing platform; we provide tools for people to share and track links on the Internet.
Hilary Mason
Entrepreneurs and innovators across the country are developing and deploying new data-powered IT tools to help clinicians succeed at delivering better care at lower cost.
Todd Park
As our technology evolves, we will have the capacity to reach new, ever-increasing depths. The question is what kind of technology, in the end, do we want to deploy in the far reaches of the ocean? Tools of science, ecology and documentation, or the destructive tools of heavy industry?
Philippe Cousteau, Jr.
To help my mother, I started working as a workshop helper. There I learned welding and other tools.
Arunachalam Muruganantham
I have a thing for tools.
Tim Allen
I wouldn’t spend five minutes with Adam outside work if I didn’t have to. But yet I feel somewhat displaced without him in the workplace… destroying my tools and leaving messes everywhere he goes.
Jamie Hyneman
Make no mistake: business forces, if used long-sightedly, are the tools for leveraging new consumer behaviors, new and smarter ways of production, and for accelerating the transition to a sustainable world.
Guilherme Leal
Without the right tools, we can’t police our markets from illegal trade.
Chris Chocola
As a filmmaker whose first film was made with the DIY tools of digital cinema, I love how the democratization of the filmmaking process and platforms like YouTube enables people to tell stories that in previous generations simply could not be told.
Barry Jenkins
The problem is that the same technological tools we use to thwart terrorists can also be used against the people whose job it is to stop them.
Ronen Bergman
The proportions, too, in which the capital that is to support labour, and the capital that is invested in tools, machinery and buildings, may be variously combined.
David Ricardo
But despite the universality of URLs, we often forget that they’re not just a handy way to address network resources. They’re also valuable communication tools.
Jesse James Garrett
I think you can have a ridiculously enormous and complex data set, but if you have the right tools and methodology then it’s not a problem.
Aaron Koblin
We continue to see acquisitions as an opportunity area for us. It’s one of the tools that we use to grow.
Dennis Muilenburg
To put it better, we believe the radar gun will get you drafted, but you have to pitch to get to the big leagues. Tools will get you drafted, but you have to be able to play to get to the big leagues.
Roy Clark
I’ve got my speed, my precision. I have tools. I’m going to use them.
Alexander Gustafsson
Many people, in their attempt to build a successful life, forget there are tools to help them.
David Joseph Schwartz
Jurisdictions across the U.S. are snapping up algorithms as tools to help judges make bail and bond decisions. They’re being sold as race- and gender-neutral assessments that allow judges to use science in determining whether someone will behave if released from jail pending trial.
John Kennedy
History's most treasured musicians were believed in and

History’s most treasured musicians were believed in and cultivated to reach their potential. Today, it would be difficult for those musicians to get deals. We have the insight and the tools to identify and bring to fruition the dormant talent that our artists possess.
Steve Vai
The most common mistakes women make when applying makeup are not applying it in the proper light and not using their hands as blending tools.
Bobbi Brown
We have new tools that can give the audience a sense of not only being there, which is the key element in an IMAX film, but also seeing things in a way that they won’t see on television or in feature films.
Greg MacGillivray
After the tragic events of Manchester, with the senseless loss of life and the fear that came from knowing my family was unsafe and that I was completely powerless to protect them, I went to a very dark place with no tools to handle the feelings that came along with the devastation of the attack.
Frankie Grande
Modern cookbooks are marketing tools for chefs. They’re in the bestseller lists but no one cooks from them.
Prue Leith
The family I’m from, well, no one had their name on big buildings. My family were builders of a different kind. Builders in the way most American families are. They used whatever tools they had – whatever God gave them – and whatever life in America provided – and built better lives and better futures for their kids.
Hillary Clinton
It is clear we can make reforms to better ensure we are giving law enforcement all of the tools they need while maintaining the appropriate safeguards to protect the very freedoms we cherish.
Leonard Boswell
We try to continually push ourselves to do more and more, not just on the hardware side but also in terms of developers’ tools so they can take advantage of the hardware that’s there, in the best way.
Tim Cook
There is the idea that there’s a section of society, these working-class tradesmen, are driving around and they all think the same. Everybody who has tools in their vehicle have all the exact same thoughts: it’s incredibly patronising isn’t it?
Sean Lock
Diplomats bluster and bluff, but democracies don’t really have that many tools they can use to push back, effectively, against the seductive ideas of dictators.
Anne Applebaum
Being in a first-world country, it’s like we have a first-row seat to witnessing humanity, but we’re not really witnessing anything. Despite all the new technological tools we’ve been given, we’re still powerless, watching everything happen like it’s a theatrical performance.
Weyes Blood
Success in foreign policy, as in carpentry, requires the right tools for the job.
Richard N. Haass
I finally feel like I have enough of the tools to be able to really set the tone for myself with the kind of work I wanna do and the kind of process I wanna have.
Charlie Plummer
In learning to utilize antibiotics for the control of human and animal diseases, the medical and veterinary professions have acquired powerful tools for combating infections and epidemics.
Selman Waksman
Even in the best of times, the United States’ ability to influence events in faraway places is limited. The tools we have, from soft power and diplomacy to sanctions and bombing campaigns, are never guaranteed to succeed.
Anne Applebaum
