A Quote by unknown on ability, aim, appreciation, beauty, creativity, criticism, decisions, destruction, discrimination, facts, judgment, meaning, traditions, truth, and work

The real aim of criticism is not the destruction of cherished traditions - although a due regard for the facts does often compel us to revise older opinions - but a fuller appreciation of the beauty and truth of the creative work on which it fixes its regard. The word "criticism" is derived from the Greek word kritikos, which means "the ability to select or discriminate," hence, to decide or judge. The meaning of criticism is thus discriminating judgment.

A Quote by Anthony (Tony) Robbins on ability, behavior, change, desires, direction, fulfillment, kindness, life, needs, people, power, sharing, thought, value, work, and world

I don't think of power in terms of conquering people. I don't think of it as something to be imposed. That kind of power seldom lasts. But you should realize that power is a constant in the world. You shape your perceptions, or someone shapes them for you. You do what you want to do, or you respond to someone else's plan for you. To me, ultimate power is the ability to produce the results you desire most and create value for others in the process. Power is the ability to change your life, to shape your perceptions, to make things work for you and not against you. Real power is shared, not imposed. It's the ability to define human needs and to fulfill them-both your needs and the needs of the people you care about. It's the ability to direct your own personal kingdom-your own thought processes, your own behavior-so you produce the precise results you desire.

Tony Robbins (1960 -)

A Quote by Thomas J. Watson on ability, achievement, business, courage, elections, government, justice, life, past, performance, reward, sales, science, and worth

A message sent to all members of the American Sales Organization at the opening of the IBM Election Prize Contest, September 1, 1932. In every walk of life, the highest places and the greatest rewards go to those who have the courage to attempt and ability to achieve big things. That is true in science. It is true in government. It is true in business. And it is true in this organization. IBM leaders in the past have proved their worth by performance, just as they will in this sales campaign.

A Quote by Thomas J. Watson on ability, advertising, america, creativity, desires, education, fulfillment, life, progress, work, and path

A message regarding the annual convention of the Advertising Federation of America in NYC, June 14-18, 1931. Advertising has illuminated the path of progress. . . . In building up desire, advertising has spurred new endeavors. It is their creative work, their dynamic presentations of products, their ability to teach and educate which have made each of us desire better things. And in the fulfillment of our desires, we have reached for and attained higher pinnacles in living standards and a clearer conception of the values of life itself.
