A Quote by William George Jordan on future, life, promises, and present

The man who says he will lead a newer and better life tomorrow, who promises great things for the future, and yet does nothing in the present to make that future possible, is living in an air-castle.

A Quote by Willard Van Orman Quine on chance, change, problems, science, present, and world

For me the problem of induction is a problem about the world: a problem of how we, as we are now (by our present scientific lights), in a world we never made, should stand better than random, or coin-tossing chances changes of coming out right when we predict by inductions. . . .

Willard Van Orman Quine (1908 -)

A Quote by Wilfred A. Peterson on art, attitude, cheerfulness, confidence, courage, defeat, enthusiasm, failure, faith, goals, honesty, humility, imagination, individuality, joy, life, love, optimism, patience, problems, relatives, serenity, success, pre

The Art of Success . . . Success is ninety-nine percent mental attitude. It calls for love, joy, optimism, confidence, serenity, poise, faith, courage, cheerfulness, imagination, initiative, tolerance, honesty, humility, patience, and enthusiasm. . . . Success is having the courage to meet failure without being defeated. It is refusing to let present loss interfere with your long-range goal. . . . Success is relative and individual and personal. It is your answer to the problem of making your minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years add up to a great life.

A Quote by Whiting Williams on difficulty, facts, labor, leadership, and present

Much of the present difficulty in industrial relations arises from the fact that too many employers as well as too many legislators take the Labor Leader more seriously than he deserves to be taken, while taking the ordinary, everyday, middle-of-the-road wage-earner less seriously than he deserves to be taken.
