“First build a strong base."
- Sun Tzu
“Three helping one another will do as much as six working singly."
- Spanish proverb
“I must create my own system or be enslaved by another man's."
- William Blake
“As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master.
This express my idea of democracy. Whatever differs from this,
to the extent of the difference, is no democracy."
- Abraham Lincoln, August 1st, 1858
“Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality. It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions.
And the actions which speak louder than the words. It is making the time when there is none. Coming through time after
time after time, year after year after year. Commitment is the stuff character is made of; the power to change the face of things.
It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism."
- Shearson Lehman, American Express
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always inneffectiveness.
Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills
countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definately commits oneself, then providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occured. A whole stream of events issues
from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance
which no man could have dreamed would come his way.
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Whatever you can do or dream you can do begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
BEGIN IT NOW!"
“Designing an object to be simple and clear takes at least twice as long as
the usual way. It requires concentration at the outset on how a clear and
simple system would work, followed by the steps required to make it come
out that way -- steps which are often much harder and more complex than the
ordinary ones. It also requires relentless pursuit of that simplicity even
when obstacles appear which would seem to stand in the way of that
- T.H. Nelson, The Home Computer Revolution, 1977
“There is great satisfaction in building good tools for other people to use."
- Freeman Dyson, Distrubing the Universe
“The real question before us lies here: do these instruments further life and enhance its values, or not?"
- Mumford, Technics and Civilization, 1934
