The following fortify me and keep me going…

  • Well behaved women seldom make history. 

— Paul Hawken —

  • Change comes from the margins. And, I encourage you to stay there.

— Randy Pausch —

  • Don’t bail. The best gold is at the bottom of the barrels of crap. 

— Nikola Tesla —

  • I don’t care that they stole my idea . . . I care that they don’t have any of their own.
  • The scientific (wo)man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of the planter — for the future. His duty is to lay the foundation for those who are to come, and point the way. He lives and labors and hopes.
  • But instinct is something which transcends knowledge. We have, undoubtedly, certain finer fibers that enable us to perceive truths when logical deduction, or any other willful effort of the brain, is futile.
  • I feel convinced that my preservation was not altogether accidental, but was indeed the work of divine power. An inventor’s endeavor is essentially life saving. Whether [s/]he harnesses forces, improves devices, or provides new comforts and conveniences, [s/]he is adding to the safety of our existence. [S/]He is also better qualified than the average individual to protect himself in peril, for [s/]he is observant and resourceful.

— Albert Einstein —

  • Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage — to move in the opposite direction.
  • Imagination is more important than knowledge.
  • The only real valuable thing is intuition.
  • Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.
  • The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.
  • Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.
  • Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.
NB: Albert Einstein was on the outside looking in. Nobody in the establishment would even hire him.

— Chief Seattle  [1854] —

  • The Earth does not belong to us; we belong to the Earth. We did not weave the web of life; we are merely a strand in it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.

— Apple Computer —

  • Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

— Michael Jordan —

  • I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.

— Linus Pauling —

  • Facts are the air of scientists; without them, you can never fly.

— Kimberly’s Kingdom  —

  • Quality takes time.
  • Out think the box.
  • Rule #1 – Keep moving. Rule #2 – Keep moving. Rule #3 – Keep moving.
  • Consumerism will be the bane of human beings’ existence.
  • Itiswhatitis…
  • Use what’s in front of you; it’s there, staring right at you…
  • It’s good to be the KING!
  • The ‘indifference’ of Mother Nature requires us to PREPARE. RESPOND. ADAPT.
