Quotes That I enjoy

I really like these.

Abraham Lincoln

Just because something doesn't do what you planned it to do doesn't mean it's useless.

Thomas Edison

When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this. You haven't.
Thomas Edison

Albert Einstein

If everybody is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking.
Gen. George S. Patton

I skate to where the puck is going to be, not to where it has been.
Wayne Gretzky

If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time-a tremendous whack.
Winston Churchill

Hi Q,

I am glad that you enjoyed them. I happen to be a big proponent of formal education, but I also think that it presents some tremendous obstacles to learning. It is hard to give students the attention they need.
