A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on achievement, engineering, knowledge, learning, needs, people, study, support, trade, and world

Young people at universities study to achieve knowledge and not to learn a trade. We must all learn how to support ourselves, but we must also learn how to live. We need a lot of engineers in the modern world, but we do not want a world of modern engineers.

Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)

A Quote by William Orville Douglas on achievement, change, facts, ideas, laws, security, and usefulness

The search for static security-in the law and elsewhere-is misguided. The fact is . . . security can only be achieved through constant change, through discarding old ideas that have outlived their usefulness and adapting to current facts.

A Quote by William G. Carleton on achievement, earth, failure, intelligence, machines, men, paradise, politics, power, security, and world

The machine can free man or enslave him; it can make of this world something resembling a paradise or a purgatory. Men have it within their power to achieve a security hitherto dreamed of only by the philosophers, or they may go the way of the dinosaurs, actually disappearing from the earth because they fail to develop the social and political intelligence to adjust to the world which their mechanical intelligence has created.

A Quote by William E. Holler on achievement, day, mind, play, time, and work

You can do what you want to do, accomplish what you want to accomplish, attain any reasonable objective you may have in mind. . . Not all of a sudden, perhaps, not in one swift and sweeping act of achievement.... But you can do it gradually-day by day and play by play-if you want to do it, if you will to do it, if you work to do it, over a sufficiently long period of time.

A Quote by William Arthur Ward on achievement, belief, decisions, listening, persistence, preparation, sleep, study, and work

A Winner's Blueprint for Achievement BELIEVE while others are doubting. PLAN while others are playing. STUDY while others are sleeping. DECIDE while others are delaying. PREPARE while others are daydreaming. BEGIN while others are procrastinating. WORK while others are wishing. SAVE while others are wasting. LISTEN while others are talking. SMILE while others are frowning. COMMEND while others are criticizing. PERSIST while others are quitting.
