A Quote by Alfred North Whitehead on common sense, creativity, ideas, originality, thought, words, and work

Now in creative thought common sense is a bad master. Its sole criterion for judgement is that the new ideas shall look like the old ones. In other words it can only work by suppressing originality.

A Quote by Alfred Hitchcock on murder, television, and work

Seeing a murder on television can help work off one's antagonisms. And if you haven't any antagonisms, the commercials will give you some.

A Quote by Alfred Adler on books, company, economics, friendship, lawyers, mathematics, work, and writers

In the company of friends, writers can discuss their books, economists the state of the economy, lawyers their latest cases, and businessmen their latest acquisitions, but mathematicians cannot discuss their mathematics at all. And the more profound their work, the less understandable it is.

A Quote by Alfred Adler on age, improvement, life, and work

The mathematical life of a mathematician is short. Work rarely improves after the age of twenty-five or thirty. If little has been accomplished by then, little will ever be accomplished.

A Quote by Alex Doherty on departure, god, guidance, happiness, heart, people, power, prayer, strength, and work

Orchards Smiling through departed leaves, Like diamond sapphires in evening sun Hang ripening fruit and from the eaves Grey sparrows make unending run, Oh happy land, Bless thy fertile soil, Oh happy people born to work and prayer, With God to guide and strength to toil, With heart and help goes will and power.
