skill

A Quote by Robert James McCracken, D.D. on boredom, emotion, generations, ideas, interest, kindness, majorities, poverty, and skill

We are raising a generation that has a woefully small stock of ideas and interests and emotions. It must be amused at all costs but it has little skill in amusing itself. It pays some of its members to do what the majority can no longer do for themselves. It is this inner poverty that makes for the worst kind of boredom.

We have seen [in the sports center] superb demonstrations of physical skill, determination, unity, discipline, coordination, cooperation, and dedication; but final victory always went to the team that knew best where the goal was and had the ability to do something about it.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on economics, hope, knowledge, learning, mind, skill, and study

I hate this shallow Americanism which hopes to get rich by credit, to get knowledge by raps on midnight tables, to learn the economy of the mind by phrenology, or skill without study, or mastery without apprenticeship.

When a man is pushed, tormented, defeated, he has a chance to learn something; he has been put on his wits; on his manhood; he has gained the facts; learns his ignorance; is cured of the insanity of conceit; has got moderation and real skill.

A Quote by Peter Carbonara on attitude, belief, company, computers, experience, good, mind, past, people, and skill

You can't build a great company without great people. But how do you know them when you see them? Over the past few years, a number of companies in a wide range of industries - from airlines to steel, computers to hotels - have asked themselves what separates their winners from their losers, good hires from bad, and they all arrived at the same answer: what people know is less important than who they are. Hiring, they believe, is not about finding people with the right experience; it's about finding people with the right mind-set. These companies hire for attitude and train for skill.
