The world always makes the assumption that the exposure of an error is identical with the discovery of truth--that the error and truth are simply opposite. They are nothing of the sort.

Delay is ever fatal to those who are prepared. (Quote by - Lucan)

Every manshould periodically be compelled to listen to opinions which are infuriating to him. To hear nothing but what is pleasing to one is to make a pillow of the mind. (Quote by - St. John Ervine)

Wherever we find orderly, stable systems in Nature, we find that they are hierarchically structured, for the simple reason that without such structuring of complex systems into sub-assemblies, there could be no order and stability- except the order of a dead universe filled with a uniformly distributed gas. (Quote by - Arthur Koestler)

The sort of dependence that results from exchange, i.e., from commercial transactions, is a reciprocal dependence. We cannot be dependent upon a foreigner without his being dependent on us.

Experience proves that those are oftenest abused who can be abused with the greatest impunity. Men are whipped oftenest who are whipped easiest. (Quote by - Frederick Douglass)

The difference between a professional person and a technician is that a technician knows everything about his job except its ultimate purpose and his place in the scheme of things. (Quote by - Richard W. Livingston)

Everybody wants to be somebody; nobody wants to grow. (Quote by - Johann Von Goethe)

one of the tests of a theory is that, once grasped, it appears self-evident. (Quote by - Arthur Koestler)

Positive self-esteem operates as, in effect, the immune system of the consciousness, providing resistance, strength, and a capacity for regeneration. When self-esteem is low, our resilience in the face of life's adversities is diminished. We crumble before vicissitudes that a healthier sense of self could vanquish. We tend to be more influenced by the desire to avoid pain than to experience joy. Negatives have more power over us than positives. (Quote by - Nathaniel Branden)

Society is always taken by surprise at any new example of common sense. (Quote by - Ralph Waldo Emerson )
