A Quote by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus on mind and reflection

Let not your mind run on what you lack as much as on what you have already. Of the things you have, select the best: and then reflect how eagerly they would have been sought if you did not have them.

A Quote by Louis Ruthenburg on ability, accuracy, art, management, patience, persistence, progress, reflection, and sincerity

The technical progress of industry has been a reflection of our ability to apply increasingly accurate methods of measurement to material things. The art of measuring psychological human dimensions is relatively undeveloped. To all of the complexities of management we must bring to bear infinite patience and persistence, consistency and complete sincerity.

A Quote by Lisa Alther on conflict, intelligence, love, people, poets, and reflection

Poets are the only people to whom love is not only a crucial, I've always felt that a person's intelligence is directly reflected by the number of conflicting points of view he can entertain simultaneously on the same topic.
