quotes with the word "pace"
We will make the case for change - but it's community acceptance that sets its pace.
those of us who run at a much slower pace not be knocked over by the bikers.
Comedy's a bit like golf . . . You can do it until you're 80, if you pace yourself and play it right.
Unless you have direct exposure to groups like Deepmind, you have no idea how fast-it is growing at a pace close to exponential. The risk of something seriously dangerous happening is in the five year timeframe. 10 years at most. This is not a case of crying wolf about something I don't understand.

I would say to everybody is that simply it is a marathon, not a sprint . . . It's not about winning week one, it's about winning that final week. You have to pace yourself.
Speak out your scripts . . . It forces you to get a draft out. You're going to get impeccable pacing - your body knows how to pace a movie.
I don't know if the people at home could see this, but Miss Colombia was being straight-up diva bitch . . . [She was] rude to her translator. She was giving the most awful side-eye, throwing major shade. . . . Miss Colombia was not happy with the pace or the way that the translator was translating.
He had no pace, he couldn't beat my father . . . I couldn't tackle my granny.
Today I had a bad start, and obviously after the contact with Daniel I was very angry, but in the end I think no one is to blame. . . . He clearly could not avoid hitting me being too fast for the line he had chosen, but these things happen. That's racing, even if of course it's painful if it happens in the first corner and you have to drive all the way back. So the race was pretty much lost at that time. I was hoping for a safety car earlier on, but it didn't happen. I tried to catch up, but the two mistakes didn't help. The last one obviously ended my race and I am not proud of it. The car in general was good, we were quick, the pace was promising and we were very close to Mercedes, probably we hadn't been that close for a while. I tried everything to force it and come back. And trying too hard is probably the right explanation for my mistake.
The truth is that I'm a very slow writer . . . And I'm writing 1,500-page manuscripts and they're writing 60-page teleplays. And, you know, the production machinery is a locomotive that can't stop, so I've been hearing it come up behind me for years, and the question is, 'Well how can I make myself write faster?' Well, I think right now the answer is I can't. I write at the pace I write.
George R. R. Martin
Golf is -- golf is nuts . . . You would think it'd be the slowest to do, but it's actually the fastest. I mean, I've done college basketball, a horse race, a bunch of different things and they'd blow by but golf has a frenetic pace of bouncing around from shot to shot and green to green and, in essence, acre to acre over this huge plot of land with over 150 players who are their own team.
In 1980s the African National Congress was still setting the pace, being the first major political formation in South Africa to commit itself firmly to a Bill of Rights, which we published in November 1990. These milestones give concrete expression to what South Africa can become. They speak of a constitutional, democratic, political order in which, regardless of colour, gender, religion, political opinion or sexual orientation, the law will provide for the equal protection of all citizens.They project a democracy in which the government, whomever that government may be, will be bound by a higher set of rules, embodied in a constitution, and will not be able govern the country as it pleases.
Inaugural speech (1994)
Operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and the war on terrorism have reduced the pace of military transformation and have revealed our lack of preparation for defensive and stability operations. This Administration has overextended our military.
Speech to the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations (12 July 2004)
More than anything, it is that sense - that despite great differences in wealth, we rise and fall together - that we can't afford to lose. As the pace of change accelerates, with some rising and many falling, that sense of common kinship becomes harder to maintain.
The Audacity of Hope (2006) p. 193
As the world grows smaller, you might think it would be easier for human beings to recognize how similar we are; to understand that we're all basically seeking the same things; that we all hope for the chance to live out our lives with some measure of happiness and fulfillment for ourselves and our families. And yet somehow, given the dizzying pace of globalization, the cultural leveling of modernity, it perhaps comes as no surprise that people fear the loss of what they cherish in their particular identities - their race, their tribe, and perhaps most powerfully their religion. In some places, this fear has led to conflict. At times, it even feels like we're moving backwards.
Nobel Prize acceptance speech
He hits that short chip, moves you forward, moves you back. He uses your pace against you. If you take pace off, so that he can't use your pace, he can step around and hurt you with the forehand. Just the amount of options he has to get around any particular stage of the match where maybe something's out of sync is-seems to be endless. His success out there is just a mere reflection of all the things that he can do.
Roger Federer, at US Open 2005.
All do not develop in the same manner, or at the same pace. Nations, like men, often march to the beat of different drummers, and the precise solutions of the United States can neither be dictated nor transplanted to others. What is important is that all nations must march toward increasing freedom; toward justice for all; toward a society strong and flexible enough to meet the demands of all its own people, and a world of immense and dizzying change.
Day of Affirmation Address (1966)
Robert F. Kennedy
I know the rigors of the NBA and what these guys can expect. I know my job is to prepare them, to get them in shape. We'll find a good offense and a good defense. And then let's do it.
"Bird Setting Feverish Pace With Indiana", Boston Globe
A living dog is better than a dead lion. Shall a man go and hang himself because he belongs to the race of pygmies, and not be the biggest pygmy that he can? Let every one mind his own business, and endeavor to be what he was made. Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.
Henry David Thoreau
I thought overall the rhythm was good, the pace was good . . . We didn't have any delay of game penalties or anything of that nature so it showed that the guys were able to get the plays, communicate them to their teammates in a timely manner.
Jim Caldwell (American football)
