A Quote by Guy Kawasaki on lies, entrepreneurs, ideas, market, and venture capitalists

“(Big name research firm) says our market will be $50 billion in 2010.” Every entrepreneur has a few slides about how the market potential for his segment is tens of billions. It doesn't matter if the product is bar mitzah planning software or 802.11 chip sets. Venture capitalists don't believe this type of forecast because it's the fifth one of this magnitude that they've heard that day. Entrepreneurs would do themselves a favor by simply removing any reference to market size estimates from consulting firms.

A Quote by Alan Cohen on thought, ideas, clarity, and confusion

"'Confusion is the last stop on the way to clarity,' he told me. 'The part of your mind that thinks it knows it all is butting up against a bigger idea. It's only a matter of time until the smaller thought gives way to the greater. Don't fight it. Just try to enjoy the ride.'"

A Quote by Carl Edward Sagan on science, hypotheses, growth, evolution, mind, ideas, evidence, scrutiny, and carl sagan

There are many hypotheses in science which are wrong. That's perfectly all right; they're the aperture to finding out what's right. Science is a self-correcting process. To be accepted, new ideas must survive the most rigorous standards of evidence and scrutiny.

Carl Sagan (1934 - 1996)

A Quote by unknown on acceptance, behavior, ideas, radicals, society, tolerance, and virtue

There is a sobering side to eccentricity. Odd behavior can flourish only in a tolerant society and that it often produces radical new ideas by virtue of its willingness to cast off accepted norms. Blessed are the cracked, for they shall let in the light.

A Quote by W.H. Murray on boldness, chance, commitment, creation, decisions, dreams, genius, ideas, ignorance, learning, magic, meetings, planning, power, providence, respect, and truth

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness concerning all acts of initiative and creation. There is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans; that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.

All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen events, meetings and material assistance which no one could have dreamed would have come their way.

I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets: "Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now!"

A Quote by Howard Aiken on good, ideas, people, and worry

Don't worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you'll have to ram them down people's throats.

A Quote by George Bernard Shaw on ideas

in

If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples, then you and I still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on death, ideas, and time

Only the idea of death makes a warrior sufficiently detached so that he is capable of abandoning himself to anything. He knows his death is stalking him and won't give him time to cling to anything so he tries, without craving, all of everything.

Carlos Castaneda (1931 -)
