A Quote by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra on action, business, clarity, difficulty, fear, learning, needs, remedies, and world

In every case, the remedy is to take action. Get clear about exactly what it is that you need to learn and exactly what you need to do to learn it. BEING CLEAR KILLS FEAR. Make it thy business to know thyself, which is the most difficult lesson in the world.

Miguel de Cervantes (1547 - 1616)

A Quote by Justice Louis Dembitz Brandeis on education, evil, falsehood, remedies, silence, speech, and time

If there be time to expose through discussion the falsehood and fallacies, to avert the evil by the processes of education, the remedy to be applied is more speech, not enforced silence.

A Quote by William Lamb, Lord Melbourne on conceit, discovery, hope, power, remedies, time, truth, women, and worth

Neither man nor woman can be worth anything until they have discovered that they are fools. wThis is the first step towards becoming either estimable or agreeable; and until it be taken there is no hope. wThe sooner the discovery is made the better, as there is more time and power for taking advantage of it. Sometimes the great truth is found out too late to  apply to it any effectual remedy.w Sometimes it is never found at all; and these form the desperate and inveterate causes of folly, self-conceit, and impertinence.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on blindness, christ, evil, learning, remedies, water, and writing

I once heard a learned man say, "Every evil has its remedy, except folly. To reprimand an obstinate fool or to preach to a dolt is like writing upon the water. Christ healed the blind, the halt, the palsied, and the leprous. But the fool He could not cure."

A Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith on action, desires, interest, politics, reflection, and remedies

Increasingly in recent times we have come first to identify the remedy that is most agreeable, most convenient, most in accord with major pecuniary or political interest, the one that reflects our available faculty for action; then we move from the remedy so available or desired back to a cause to which that remedy is relevant.

A Quote by John Burroughs on direction, justice, life, purpose, remedies, and water

A man's life may stagnate as literally as water may stagnate, and just as motion and direction are the remedy for one, so purpose and activity are the remedy for the other.
