trying

A Quote by Robert J. Kleinhenz on automobiles, beginning, camping, journeys, mountains, obstacles, struggle, and trying

When asked what it was like to set about proving something, the mathematician likened proving a theorem to seeing the peak of a mountain and trying to climb to the top. One establishes a base camp and begins scaling the mountain's sheer face, encountering obstacles at every turn, often retracing one's steps and struggling every foot of the journey. Finally when the top is reached, one stands examining the peak, taking in the view of the surrounding countrysideand then noting the automobile road up the other side!

A Quote by Richard David Bach on dreams, love, money, people, play, power, sex, and trying

Other people think they know what you are: glamour, sex, money, power, love. It may be a press agent dream which has nothing to do with you, maybe it's something you don't even like, but that's what they think you are. People rush at you from all sides, they think they're going to get these things if they touch you. It's scary, so you build walls around yourself, thick glass walls while you're trying to think, trying to catch your breath. You know who you are inside, but people outside see something different. You can choose to become the image, and let go of who you are, or continue as you are and feel phony when you play the image.

Richard Bach (1936 -)

A Quote by Ric Ocasek on country, environment, happiness, heaven, love, society, songs, and trying

This environment [New York] is heaven. I love walking down the street and seeing faces and drama and happiness and sadness and dirt and cleanliness. I could never be a country person, sitting around trees trying to write a song. I would rather be in the middle of society, whether it's growing or crumbling

A Quote by Rich Cook on engineering, proof, trying, universe, and winning

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idoits. So far, the Universe is winning.

A Quote by Ric Ocasek on justice, kindness, motivation, people, society, and trying

The most important thing to a lot of people, is to belong to something that's hip or whatever. To be a part of something that's not society, just a clique. And they get real sidetracked trying to think like everyone else. They don't realize that you have to motivate yourself to do things you want to do. Some people just like going along for the ride. And those are the kind of people I don't get along with too well.

A Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller on earth, justice, problems, theory, thinking, and trying

. . . So I vowed to keep myself alive, but only if I would never use me again for just me - each one of us is born of two, and we really belong to each other. I vowed to do my own thinking, instead of trying to accommodate everyone else's opinion, credo's and theories. I vowed to apply my inventory of experiences to the solving of problems that affect everyone aboard planet Earth.

R. Buckminster Fuller (1895 - 1983)
