interesting quotations
Interesting Quotations
  • Whereas convictions depend on speed-ups, justice requires delay.
  • The nature of people demands that most of them be engaged in the most
  • frivolous possible activities—like making money.
  • We look at the present through a rear-view mirror. We march backwards into
  • the future.
Spaceship earth is still operated by railway conductors, just as NASA is
  • managed by men with Newtonian goals.
  • Invention is the mother of necessities.
  • Mud sometimes gives the illusion of depth.
  • Why is it so easy to acquire the solutions of past problems and so difficult to solve current ones?
Today each of us lives several hundred years in a decade.
  • Today the business of business is becoming the constant invention of new business.
  • Tomorrow is our permanent address.
  • All advertising advertises advertising.
  • The answers are always inside the problem, not outside.
  • This information is top security. When you have read it, destroy yourself.
  • The specialist is one who never makes small mistakes while moving toward the grand fallacy.
The missing link created far more interest than all the chains and explanations of being.
  • When a thing is current, it creates currency.
  • Men on frontiers, whether of time or space, abandon their previous identities. Neighborhood gives identity. Frontiers snatch it away.
  • The ignorance of how to use new knowledge stockpiles exponentially.
  • At the speed of light, policies and political parties yield place to charismatic images.
  • “I may be wrong, but I’m never in doubt.”
