Words that have Spoken to Me – I

10 08 2008


“It is one of the most beautiful compensations in life…that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.”  –   Ralph Waldo Emerson.


“Of the many lessons I learnt…one lives on with me – actually do what you think, do not just think what to do.” –  Robert L. Flood.


“Knowing oneself following a system of thoughts, will simply create a result, i.e. oneself, produced by that system of thought – not knowing oneself.” –   Robert L. Flood.


“Philosophers live finally from their own intuitions. And those intuitions are not acquired by reading philosophic texts. They are acquired in certain particular individual experiences while growing up — rather negative experiences of violation, indignation and Krankung.”  –   Juergen Habermas.


“The barrier to change is not too little caring; it is too much complexity.To turn caring into action, we need to see a problem, see a solution, and see the impact. But complexity blocks all three steps.” – William H. Gates III a.k.a. Bill Gates
