A Quote by Theodore Seuss Geisel "Dr. Seuss" on computers, corruption, errors, memory, poets, risk, and writing

WHAT IF DR. SEUSS DID TECHNICAL WRITING? by Bill Bercu If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port, and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort, and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort, then the socket packet pocket has an error to report. If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash, and the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash, and your data is corrupted 'cause the index doesn't hash, then your situation's hopeless and your system's gonna crash! If the label on the cable on the table at your house, says the network is connected to the button on your mouse, but your packets want to tunnel on another protocol, that's repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall, and your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss, so your icons in the window are as wavy as a souse, then you may as well reboot and go out with a bang, 'cause as sure as I'm a poet, the sucker's gonna hang! When the copy of your floppy's getting sloppy on the disk, and the microcode instructions cause unnecessary risk, then you have to flash your memory and you'll want to RAM your ROM. Quickly turn off the computer and go and tell your mom.

Dr. Seuss (1904 - 1991)

A Quote by Denis Waitley on life and risk


Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing.

A Quote by Dean Alfrange on challenge, citizenship, dignity, dreams, existence, failure, freedom, fulfillment, life, opportunity, risk, security, success, trade, wishes, and world

It is my right to be uncommon . . . if I can; I seek opportunity . . . not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stole calm of utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud, and unafraid; to think and act for myself; enjoy the benefits of my creations and to face the world boldly and say, 'This I have done, and this is what it means to be an American.'

A Quote by Dean L. Larsen on chance, church, failure, freedom, growth, opportunity, possibility, progress, risk, and security

As the opportunity grows for unlimited growth and progress, the chances of failure increase. There is no such thing as a program that will provide security and growth and progress with no risk . . . even within the church. As freedom for unrestricted development is enhanced, the possibilities for failure are also increased. The risk factor is great.

Dean L. Larsen (1927 -)
