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 adventure, art, belief, books, courage, curiosity, day, death, dreams, exploring, faith, friendship, heart, ideas, life, men, problems, reading, support, theory, and thinking

A man practices the art of adventure when he heroically faces up to life; When he has the daring to open doors to new experiences and to step boldly forth to explore strange horizons. When he is unafraid of new ideas, new theories and new philosophies. When he has the curiosity to experiment--to test and try new ways of living and thinking. When he has the flexibility to adjust and adapt himself to the changing patterns of life. When he refuses to seek safe places and easy tasks and has, instead, the courage to wrestle with the toughest problems. When he has the moral stamina to be steadfast in the support of those men in whom he has faith and those causes in which he believes. When he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints. When he has the nerve to move out of life's shallows and venture forth into the deep. When he keeps his heart young, his expectations high and never allows his dreams to die. When he concludes that a rut is only another name for the grave and that the only way to stay out of the ruts is by living adventurously and staying vitally alive every day of his life.

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 W.B. Frankland on concern and problems

Whereas at the outset geometry is reported to have concerned herself with the measurement of muddy land, she now handles celestial as well as terrestrial problems: she has extended her domain to the furthest bounds of space.

A Quote by Walter Teague on confidence, generosity, good, intelligence, men, problems, solution, spirit, understanding, and world

My intimate contact with those great producing organizations and the men in them has given me great confidence in the machinery and the spirit now available for the building of a proper world. I do not mean that our industrial system is as good as it should be, but if I am looking for intelligent and unselfish understanding of our problems, and a generous approach to their solution, I shall seek it among the makers and builders with far more confidence than among the talkers, the manipulators and the vote seekers.

A Quote by W. Walter Williams on capitalism, future, insecurity, life, problems, and reflection

The record of the last century has been impressive. The problem for the future is to keep our capitalism dynamic - continue to raise living standards and yet to reduce, as much as possible, the human costs as reflected in insecurity and instability.

To solve a problem or to reach a goal, you...don't need to know all the answers in advance. But you must have a clear idea of the problem or the goal you want to reach.
