Velocity Quotes:

By allowing the positive ions to pass through an electric field and thus giving them a certain velocity, it is possible to distinguish them from the neutral, stationary atoms.

Johannes Stark

One of my philosophies of building companies is the importance of velocity.

Andrew Ng

Market leadership can translate directly to higher revenue, higher profitability, greater capital velocity, and correspondingly stronger returns on invested capital.

Jeff Bezos

In bodies moved, the motion is received, increased, diminished, or lost, according to the relations of the quantity of matter and velocity; each diversity is uniformity, each change is constancy.

Montesquieu

The uncertainty relation does not refer to the past; if the velocity of the electron is at first known and the position then exactly measured, the position for times previous to the measurement may be calculated.

Werner Heisenberg

The uncertainty principle refers to the degree of indeterminateness in the possible present knowledge of the simultaneous values of various quantities with which the quantum theory deals; it does not restrict, for example, the exactness of a position measurement alone or a velocity measurement alone.

Werner Heisenberg

In turning from the smaller instruments in frequent use to the larger and more important machines, the economy arising from the increase of velocity becomes more striking.

Charles Babbage

The proportion between the velocity with which men or animals move, and the weights they carry, is a matter of considerable importance, particularly in military affairs.

Charles Babbage

Whenever the work is itself light, it becomes necessary, in order to economize time, to increase the velocity.

Charles Babbage

In baseball, you can do something poorly and still get credit. A pitcher could throw a bad ball, the batter hit a screaming line drive, and an outfielder make a fantastic diving catch. Yet, when you look at historical databases, 80% of the time when a ball is struck with that trajectory and velocity, it is a hit.

Billy Beane

In 2009, at the height of the global economic crisis, it was clear that we were seeing something new: the impacts of the crisis were flowing across borders at unprecedented velocity.

Ban Ki-moon

I think we live in delusional times, whether it’s with a great ability to totally distract ourselves with technology, or with speed and the velocity of life.

Michael Leunig

I never want the ball above my shoulders until I’m really firing. I feel like I can generate more velocity with my arm path. The way my arm works, there’s so many benefits to it – from a health standpoint, as well.

Max Scherzer

Everything I do is somehow connected to velocity.

Hans-Ulrich Obrist

Through machinery, man can exert tremendous powers almost as fantastic as if he were the hero of a fairy tale. Through machinery, man can travel with an ever increasing velocity; he can fly through the air and go beneath the surface of the ocean.

Maria Montessori

It’s a lot easier to gain traction when there is such a great proliferation of Internet access. The velocity at which some of these startups are gaining traction is mind-boggling. Companies like ShoeDazzle, Stella & Dot, Gilt, Groupon – these companies are going from zero to hundreds of millions in revenue in three years.

Brian Lee

The waves travel with the velocity of light and slightly squeeze and stretch space transverse to the direction of their motion. The first waves we measured came from the collision of two black holes each about 30 times the mass of our sun.

Rainer Weiss

This is the first real evidence that we’ve seen now of high gravitational field strengths: monstrous things like stars moving at the velocity of light, smashing into each other, and making the geometry of space-time turn into some sort of washing machine.

Rainer Weiss

We’re on the same radius from the Earth, and then we start to swing around to where we’re ahead of them on the velocity vector, so we come in relative to the station from this forward velocity position and dock on to the forward end of the Lab.

Linda M. Godwin

Working with lots of old media clients, I’ve had a front-row seat on the ascension of new social players and the decline of traditional news outlets. And it’s clear to me that old media has an awful lot to learn from social media, in particular in five key areas: relevance, distribution, velocity, monetization, and user experience.

Ryan Holmes

Your company is probably going to get hacked. The velocity and complexity of hacking attempts has skyrocketed, with companies routinely facing millions of knocks on the vault door.

Nina Easton

With a smaller setting, you have a lot more freedom and flexibility within a given moment, but not necessarily the velocity you have with a big band.

Kurt Elling

In this position I play, it’s just repetition and continuing to throw the routes and getting that velocity back that you would throw in game speed.

Donovan McNabb

I just think that’s the key to all of the quarterbacks throughout the league. You want to have a consistent drop, a consistent balance in the pocket so that you can really get everything into the throw, so that you are throwing with good velocity.

Matt LaFleur

The issue is, you’re not going to have a lot of inflation showing up when you have no velocity.

Rick Santelli

I’m pretty proud of my fastball. I can throw a screwball. It’s not as accurate, and I don’t have the velocity like I do with my fastball, but I think my fastball is not too shabby.

Kylie Bunbury

What people really haven’t thought about with real estate is, if you get tax reform, you’re going to see real estate now… the velocity of selling and buying real estate will just kick.

Howard Lutnick

Changing the asteroid’s velocity changes the time when the asteroid crosses Earth’s orbit. After all, just because it crosses Earth’s path doesn’t mean there is necessarily going to be a collision. It has to cross Earth’s path when the Earth is right there.

Carrie Nugent

The velocity and knee-jerk response to events happening in real time that television brings us precludes any kind of reflection or contemplation and therefore analysis. And that’s been one of the greatest political dangers in the post-war era. The idea of the reasoned, thoughtful response goes out of the window.

Bill Viola

The hazards posed by Near-Earth Asteroids are assessed by Sentry, a computer system developed by the Near-Earth Objects Group at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. The software factors together a cosmic rock’s coordinates, distance, velocity, and gravitational influences to calculate its trajectory.

Brendan I. Koerner

I’ve always resented the force of attraction that traps me here on Planet Earth. It makes me feel like a bug stuck to a piece of duct tape. Ever since my teenage years, when I used to read a lot of science fiction and took it much too seriously, I’ve dreamed of somehow reaching escape velocity. I am, you might say, anti-gravity.

Charles Platt

I am sensible of the velocity of the moments, and entering that part of my head alert to the motion of the world I am aware that life was never perfect, never absolute. This bestows contentment, even a fearlessness.

Harold Brodkey

I came to realize in my late 20s that my velocity is not going to grow so I had to learn to utilize what I had.

Jamie Moyer

What is new is the multiplying reach and volume of the Internet, concentrating the toxicity of destructive emotions and circulating them in the political bloodstream with unparalleled velocity.

Tina Brown

A beam of luminous hydrogen canal rays has, owing to its velocity, exactly the same direction as that of the electric field in which it may be made to move.

Johannes Stark

The great weight of the ship may indeed prevent her from acquiring her greatest velocity; but when she has attained it, she will advance by her own intrinsic motion, without gaining any new degree of velocity, or lessening what she has acquired.

William Falconer

Making money, it seems, is all about the velocity of moving it around, so that it can exist in Hong Kong one moment and Wall Street a split second later.

Richard Dooling

And from a poise at this station the plane may swoop down, at great disadvantage if close to the back of the wave, at various slopes and directions till it cuts into the air that is being raised by the face of the following wave, which again enables it to resume its velocity.

Lawrence Hargrave

We shall probably never attain the power of measuring the velocity of nervous action; for we have not the opportunity of comparing its propagation through immense space, as we have in the case of light.

Johannes P. Muller

The community of developers whose work you see on the Web, who probably don’t know what ADO or UML or JPA even stand for, deploy better systems at less cost in less time at lower risk than we see in the Enterprise. This is true even when you factor in the greater flexibility and velocity of startups.

Tim Bray

Standing at my door, I heard the discharge of a gun, and in four or five seconds of time, after the discharge, the small shot came rattling about me, one or two of which struck the house; which plainly demonstrates that the velocity of sound is greater than that of a cannon bullet.

Benjamin Banneker

Given the accelerating velocity of history, we should begin charting deliberately the next phase in its trajectory.

Zbigniew Brzezinski

Bullets are fast – even a 9-millimeter handgun launches lead at Mach 1. And the bigger the bullet gets, the more grains of gunpowder it carries, the faster it goes. Modern rifles can fling the small pieces of metal at half the velocity needed to escape the gravitational pull of the Moon.

Kyle Hill

Most people hoard their money – just keep it in the bank. Bitcoin will really take off when people start spending it, creating a velocity of money.

Adam Draper

Zero kelvin is the lowest possible temperature. At absolute zero, all motion comes to a standstill. It is obvious that a lower temperature is not feasible because there is no velocity smaller than zero and no energy content less than nothing.

Wolfgang Ketterle

‘The Company You Keep’ is about outgrowing not just the delusions that accompany youth but the harsh certainties driving our lives and then trapping them before the years outpace the velocity of our dreams.

Steve Erickson

That’s why it’s so important to have that gap between your fastball and off-speed pitches: then, when you effectively locate your fastball, it plays at a higher velocity.

Jake Arrieta

I was a quicksilver girl who saw every leaf on every tree. For me, there was no middle ground between sinking and flying, and once I was into my early adult years, my roller coaster got wilder and faster: I seemed to rise and fall with the same reckless velocity.

Margaret Trudeau

Windmills, which are used in the great plains of Holland and North Germany to supply the want of falling water, afford another instance of the action of velocity. The sails are driven by air in motion – by wind.

Hermann von Helmholtz

I like physics. I think it is the best science out of all three of them, because generally it’s more useful. You learn about speed and velocity and time, and that’s all clever stuff.

Tom Felton

What Wall Street is, they’re market makers. Wall Street’s business model is making money on velocity of money. They’re a click industry. That’s what Wall Street is. They make a lot of money when there’s a lot of turnover. And they make a lot of money when that velocity is fast.

Laurence D. Fink

What is Velocity?

The velocity of an object is the rate of change of its position in relation to the frame of reference and is a function of time. Velocity is equivalent to a specification of the speed and direction of motion of the object. Velocity is a fundamental concept in kinematics, a branch of classical mechanics that describes the motion of the body.
