A Quote by Joao Magueijo on physics, cosmology, self-esteem, science, vision, and courage

My diary entries during this period constantly refer to the importance of learning how to take criticism. If you shut yourself in your own little world, that will be the death of your theory. On the other hand, many of the criticisms you receive are pointless and simply reflect the view that anything new is bad. In such a delicate situation it is crucial to tread gingerly and be careful to appreciate the difference between pertinent and idiotic comments.

A Quote by Dave Carter on vision


shootin' fools and starry gazers, wizard hip and button down
i walk the occam razor way through priests and circus clowns
am i a visioner of faith or grace or vision or
another grinning prisoner in happytown

A Quote by John A. Byrne on conscious capitalism, business, mission, and vision

We believe that there is no greater power in the world than the force of a great idea. We believe that people are the lifeblood of every organization. We believe that the best companies are true meritocracies, where people rise and fall through their own contributions, not through game playing or politics. We believe that work isn't simply a paycheck; it is the ultimate expression of a fully realized self. We believe that a company's obligations extend far beyond its bottom line and its shareholders -- to a wider constituency that includes employees, customers, suppliers, and the community.

A Quote by Thomas J. "Tom" Peters on curiosity, passion, wow, education, experience, adventure, open mind, vision, and work

It boils down to studenthood-in-perpetuity / curiosity-in-perpetuity / applied fanatic restlessness. That is, a belief that life is . . . ONE BIG LEARNING EXPERIENCE. Something mysterious happens to a curious, fully engaged mind -- and it happens as often as not, subconsciously. Strange little sparks are set off, connections made, insights triggered. The results: an exponentially increased ability to tune up / reinvent / WOW-ize today's project at work.

A Quote by Thomas J. "Tom" Peters on vision, wealth, creativity, and stamina

Obviously, despite hard work and heroic efforts, many dreams don't come true. But if we don't dare to dream and then throw muscle, heart, and soul into making the dream come true, then WOWProjects--and all of the emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and financial riches that they bring--will surely NOT be our lot in life!

A Quote by Thomas J. "Tom" Peters on curiosity, passion, education, marketing, warren bennis, david ogilvy, leadership, and vision

Winston Churchill said that appetite was the most important thing about education. Leadership guru Warren Bennis says he wants to be remembered as 'curious to the end.' David Ogilvy contends that the greatest ad copywriters are marked by an insatiable curiosity 'about every subject under the sun.'

A Quote by Lao Tzu on tao, mastery, vision, and trust

Colors blind the eye.
Sounds deafen the ear.
Flavors numb the taste.
Thoughts weaken the mind.
Desires wither the heart.

The Master observes the world
but trusts his inner vision.
He allows things to come and go.
His heart is open as the sky.

Lao Tzu (c.604 - 531 B.C.)
