A Quote by Thomas J. "Tom" Peters on uncertainty, resilience, unpredicatability, and black swan

Well if we can't plan for it, and we can't let it distract us 24 hours a day every day, what can we do?

Beats me, is mostly my response.

But I have fallen deeply in love with a word that may be of use ... Resilience.

To deal with the absurdly unlikely, we can find resilient people and shape our organization to be more or less able to respond to a knockout blow—right out of left field.

Tom Peters (1942 -)

A Quote by Helen Hayes on acceptance, courage, joy, poets, resilience, sorrow, strength, and wisdom

We rely upon the poets, the philosophers and the playwrights to articulate what most of us can only feel, in joy or sorrow. They illuminate the thoughts for which we only grope. They give us the strength and balm we cannot find in ourselves. Whenever I find my courage wavering I rush to them. They give me the wisdom of acceptance, the will and resilience to push on.

Helen Hayes (1900 - ?)
