Some Wise Quotations

I saw a quotations page today on litemind.com and thought it was worth passing on. Several “spoke” to me:

5. The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.
—William Arthur Ward
(Or alternately, I’d say “The Bear complains about the wind; the Bull expects it to change; the Trader adjusts the sails.”)

6. If you don’t make mistakes, you’re not working on hard enough problems. And that’s a big mistake.
—Frank Wilczek

10. I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.
—Bill Cosby
(This one applies to me BIG TIME)

18. Good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment.
—Barry LePatner

45. There is nobody so irritating as somebody with less intelligence and more sense than we have.
—Don Herold
