A Quote by Charles Robert Darwin on confidence, ignorance, knowledge, problems, and science

Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge; it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.

Charles Darwin (1809 - 1882)

A Quote by Charles Barkley on belief, education, problems, and society

I don't believe athletes should be role models. . . . We're a one-shot deal, one in a million, so we should be the least likely role models. . . . I think one of the problems in society today is that we don't stress education enough, because we glorify athletes, actors and actresses.

A Quote by Cecilia Bartholomew on problems, time, words, and writers

Writers have two main problems. One is writer's block, when the words won't come at all, and the other is logorrhea, when the words come so fast that they can hardly get to the wastebasket in time.

If we could get the public as involved and as informed about politics as they are about Monday Night Football, we would not have as many problems. People have to get off their duffs and participate.

A Quote by Brooke Foss Westcott on agreement, country, diplomacy, hell, home, life, problems, and time

A diplomat is a person who: -always knows what to talk about, but doesn't always talk about what he knows. -always tries to settle problems created by other diplomats. -can always make himself misunderstood. -can bring home the bacon without spilling the beans. -can say the nastiest things in the nicest way. -can tell you to go to hell so tactfully that you look forward to the trip. -comes right out and says what he thinks when he agrees with you. -divides his time between running for office and running for cover. -lets you do all the talking while he gets what he wants. -puts his cards on the table, but still has some up each sleeve. -will lay down your life for his country.

A Quote by Branko Grünbaum on facts, mathematics, practicality, problems, value, and work

Mathematicians have long since regarded it as demeaning to work on problems related to elementary geometry in two or three dimensions, in spite of the fact that it it precisely this sort of mathematics which is of practical value.

Branko Grenbaum (1926 -)
