Favorite Solving Problem Quotes

1. "I am not more gifted than the average human being. If you know anything about history, you would know that is so--what hard times I had in studying and the fact that I do not have a memory like some other people do… I am just more curious than the average person and I will not give up on a problem until I have found the proper solution. This is one of my greatest satisfactions in life--solving problems--and the harder they are, the more satisfaction do I get out of them. Maybe you could consider me a bit more patient in continuing with my problem than is the average human being. Now, if you understand what I have just told you, you see that it is not a matter of being more gifted but a matter of being more curious and maybe more patient until you solve a problem."
Author: Albert Einstein
2. "By standard intelligence texts, the dogs have failed at the puzzle. I believe, by contrast that they have succeeded magnificently. They have applied a novel tool to the task. We are that tool. Dogs have learned this--and they see us as fine general-purpose tools, too: useful for protection, acquiring food, providing companionship. We solve the puzzles of closed doors and empty water dishes. In the folk psychology of dogs, we humans are brilliant enough to extract hopelessly tangled leashes from around trees; we can conjure up an endless bounty of foodstuffs and things to chew. How savvy we are in dogs' eyes! It's a clever strategy to turn to us after all. The question of the cognitive abilities of dogs is thereby transformed; dogs are terrific at using humans to solve problems, but not as good at solving problems when we're not around."
Author: Alexandra Horowitz
3. "When solving problems, dig at the roots instead of just hacking at the leaves."
Author: Anthony J. D'Angelo
4. "The stakes involved in Washington policy debates are often so high-- whether we send our young men and women to war; whether we allow stem cell research to go forward-- that even small differences in perspective are magnified. The demands of party loyalty, the imperative of campaigns, and the amplification of conflict by the media all contribute to an atmosphere of suspicion. Moreover, most people who serve in Washington have been trained either as lawyers or as political operatives-- professions that tend to place a premium on winning arguments rather than solving problems. I can see how, after a certain amount of time in the capital, it becomes tempting to assume that those who disagree with you have fundamentally different values-- indeed, that they are motivated by bad faith, and perhaps are bad people."
Author: Barack Obama
5. "... he was juggling issues and solving problems, which was why his brain had no space left for memories."
Author: Candace Bushnell
6. "And I think if the president's made a mistake here, it's this laid-back kind of approach where he's waiting for someone else to solve the problem. Some people say it's a political strategy. No matter what it is, it's not effective in solving problems."
Author: Chris Christie
7. "Solving problems isn't so much about simplifying them as it is about properly and realistically reducing them to only what's relevant. And one of the best ways to reduce a problem to only what's relevant is to throw away most of your assumptions about it."
Author: Christian Cantrell
8. "The day you are not solving problems or are not up to your butt in problems is probably a day you are no longer leading. If your desk is clean and no one is bringing you problems, you should be very worried. It means that people don't think you can solve them or don't want to hear about them. Or, far worse, it means they don't think you care."
Author: Colin Powell
9. "Man is brilliant at solving problems; but solving them only makes him the victim of his own childishness and laziness. It is this recognition that has made almost every major philosopher in history a pessimist."
Author: Colin Wilson
10. "Money should not, and must not, change our commitment to solving problems and building this state."
Author: Dave Freudenthal
11. "I like solving problems, and science provides a logical way of solving real-life problems."
Author: David J. Anderson
12. "Leaders who get team members to solve their own problems are making a sound investment that will pay off with many benefits: their team members will become less dependent on them, more -self-¬directing, more ¬self-¬sufficient, and more capable of solving problems on their own."
Author: Dr. Thomas Gordon
13. "I think life on Earth must be about more than just solving problems... It's got to be something inspiring, even if it is vicarious."
Author: Elon Musk
14. "It became clearer and clearer to me that I had found a woman who possessed the strength and like-mindedness I'd been hoping to locate my entire adult life. 'In marriage, choose someone you're comfortable solving problems with' was an aphorism I'd been acquainted with. I had long ago concocted my own turbocharged version, which better fit my own history and worldview. The blessing to be carefully preserved, I'd concluded, is a partner with whom you're not only be able to endure a crisis but whose companionship you could continue to enjoy in spite of the crisis. It became apparent that I might have found exactly that."
Author: Evan Handler
15. "My effectiveness is best placed in solving problems through federal solutions."
Author: George Nethercutt
16. "So much in writing depends on the superficiality of one's days. One may be preoccupied with shopping and income tax returns and chance conversations, but the stream of the unconscious continues to flow undisturbed, solving problems, planning ahead: one sits down sterile and dispirited at the desk, and suddenly the words come as though from the air: the situations that seemed blocked in a hopeless impasse move forward: the work has been done while one slept or shopped or talked with friends."
Author: Graham Greene
17. "Give your subconscious a chance to work by turning your brain off from time to time. Don't focus on work or solving problems constantly."
Author: Harvey MacKay
18. "To be an enduring, great company, you have to build a mechanism for preventing or solving problems that will long outlast any one individual leader."
Author: Howard Schultz
19. "It is in the whole process of meeting and solving problems that life has meaning. Problems are the cutting edge that distinguishes between success and failure. Problems call forth our courage and our wisdom; indeed, they create our courage and our wisdom. It is only because of problems that we grow mentally and spiritually. It is through the pain of confronting and resolving problems that we learn."
Author: M. Scott Peck
20. "I liked maths because it meant solving problems, and these problems were difficult and interesting but there was always a straightforward answer at the end"
Author: Mark Haddon
21. "Utopian speculations ... must come back into fashion. They are a way of affirming faith in the possibility of solving problems that seem at the moment insoluble. Today even the survival of humanity is a utopian hope."
Author: Norman O. Brown
22. "Mental acuity of any kind comes from solving problems yourself, not from being told how to solve them."
Author: Paul Lockhart
23. "Art is solving problems that cannot be formulated before they have been solved. The shaping of the question is part of the answer."
Author: Piet Hein
24. "A successful person isn't necessarily better than her less successful peers at solving problems; her pattern-recognition facilities have just learned what problems are worth solving."
Author: Ray Kurzweil
25. "Jedi are conversationalists and negotiators, bringing people together and solving problems. Jedi listen and feel to what others are saying."
Author: Stephen Richards
