A Quote by Walter Elias "Walt" Disney on children, people, trouble, and world

Too many people grow up. That's the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. They don't remember what it's like to be 12 years old. They patronize, they treat children as inferiors. Well I won't do that.

Walt Disney (1901 - 1966)

A Quote by W. Clement Stone on achievement, adversity, clarity, desires, goals, individuality, learning, mind, problems, time, trouble, and words

All personal achievement starts in the mind of the individual. Your personal achievement starts in your mind. the first step is to know exactly what your problem, goal or desire is. If you're not clear about this, then write it down, and rewrite it until the words express precisely what you are after. Every disadvantage has an equivalent advantage - if you'll take the trouble to find it. Learn to do that and you'll kick the stuffing out of adversity every time.

W. Clement Stone (1902 -)

A Quote by Vincent Lombardi on acceptance, defeat, egotism, justice, men, pride, reflection, and trouble

And the trouble with me is that my ego just can't accept a loss. I suppose that if I were more perfectly adjusted, I would toss off defeat, but my name is on this ball club. Thirty-six men publicly reflect me and reflect on me, and it's a matter of my pride.

Vincent Lombardi (1913 - 1970)

A Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin on art, boredom, children, despair, evil, facts, habits, happiness, intelligence, joy, laws, life, losing, maturity, nobility, pain, passion, people, police, praise, rules, secrets, simplicity, slavery, society, stupidity, tr

They did not use swords, or keep slaves. They were not barbarians. I do not know the rules and laws of their society, but I suspect that they were singularly few. As they did without monarchy and slavery, so they also got on without the stock exchange, the advertisement, the secret police, and the bomb. Yet I repeat that these were not simple folk, not dulcet shepherds, noble savages, bland utopians. They were not less complex than us. The trouble is that we have a bad habit, encouraged by pedants and sophisticates, of considering happiness as something rather stupid. Only pain is intellectual, only evil interesting. This is the treason of the artist: a refusal to admit the banality of evil and the terrible boredom of pain. If you can't lick 'em, join 'em. If it hurts, repeat it. But to praise despair is to condemn delight, to embrace violence is to lose hold of everything else. We have almost lost hold, we can no longer describe a happy man, nor make any celebration of joy. How can I tell you about the people of Omelas? They were not naive and happy children - though their children were, in fact happy. They were mature, intelligent, passionate adults whose lives were not wretched

Ursula K. Le Guin (1929 -)

When we work to buy enough food to go to work, at that moment - and until our attitude is changed - we are in trouble.
