Quotes

Nature has explained to me many things that books alone could not give me. Science and nature have given me the most interesting hours of my life.
Roman Vishniac

Logic will never change emotion or perception.” — Edward de Bono

I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. … If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.” — Goethe
