"Playing nuts is a game like any other, neither better than tops, nor worse than cards. The game is played in various ways. There are holes and bank and caps. But every game finishes up in the same way. One boy loses, another wins. And, as always, he who wins is a clever fellow, a smart fellow, a good fellow."

Quotes About Strategy And Planning

"The strategy for the discoverers and entrepreneurs is to rely less on top-down planning and focus on maximum tinkering and recognizing opportunities when they present themselves. So I disagree with the followers of Marx and those of Adam Smith: the reason free markets work is because they allow people to be lucky, thanks to aggressive trial and error, not by giving rewards or "incentives" for skill. The strategy is, then, to tinker as much as possible and try to collect as many Black Swan opportunities as you can." - Author: Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Quotes About Encephalitis

"I slip off my flats and walk down the front porch steps, while Mother calls out for me to put my shoes back on, threatening ringworm, mosquito, encephalitis. The inevitability of death by no shoes. Death by no husband." - Author: Kathryn Stockett

Quotes About Not Agreeing

"Instead of a book, what if were actually writing (or not writing) in the margins of our lives? What if our lives are books? What is the sign of our presence? Are we pressing into the margins our interpretations and questions? Are we circling offending verbs and drawing furious arrows to the margin where we scrawl "irony," "frustration," "voiceless," "unfair!" Or do we simply turn the pages, passively receiving whats given, furiously disagreeing but remaining silent about it?" - Author: Patti Digh

Quotes About Loving One Girl

"The grandest ambition that any man can possibly have, is to so live, and so improve himself in heart and brain, as to be worthy of the love of some splendid woman; and the grandest ambition of any girl is to make herself worthy of the love and adoration of some magnificent man. That is my idea. There is no success in life without love and marriage. You had better be the emperor of one loving and tender heart, and she the empress of yours, than to be king of the world. The man who has really won the love of one good woman in this world, I do not care if he dies in the ditch a beggar, his life has been a success." - Author: Robert G. Ingersoll

Quotes About Gems

"I made it," you said, gruffly, "for you."You shoved it onto my finger. It was roughly carved, shaped from a lump of something colourful and cold...a ring made entirely from a gemstone. It was beautiful. It glinted emerald greens and blood reds over my skin, and had tiny flecks of gold catching the light. I couldnt stop staring at it."Why?" I asked.You didnt answer that. Instead you touched the ring gently and looked piercingly at me, unsaid questions in your eyes." - Author: Lucy Christopher

Quotes About Journalist

"I think being a liberal, in the true sense, is being nondoctrinaire, nondogmatic, non-committed to a cause - but examining each case on its merits. Being left of center is another thing; its a political position. I think most newspapermen by definition have to be liberal; if theyre not liberal, by my definition of it, then they can hardly be good newspapermen. If theyre preordained dogmatists for a cause, then they cant be very good journalists; that is, if they carry it into their journalism."[Interview with Ron Powers (Chicago Sun Times) for Playboy, 1973]" - Author: Walter Cronkite

Quotes About Getting What You Deserve In A Bad Way

"The common approach is, metaphorically speaking, to go out onto the sidewalk and to pick up all the banana skins, so that no one slips. Me, I go down early in the morning and drop more banana skins. People say, ‘Well, why would you be doing that? And I tell them, ‘Teaching is not about trying to prevent people from falling down, its about trying to get them to use their eyes. If you take the banana skins away, youre saying that life is banana-skin free. Well, it is not. Life is full of banana skins.I try to teach people to use their eyes, to look where theyre stepping. Its my responsibility to respect people, to help them learn the lessons life teaches. When you slip on a banana skin and fall down, discuss what happened and learn from it. I think that it is actually unwise to get in between people and what life is trying to teach them, but we all have a responsibility for each other." - Author: Johann Christoph Arnold

Quotes About Hunger And Malnutrition

"Our foremost priority is the removal of poverty, hunger and malnutrition, disease and illiteracy. All social welfare programmes must be implemented efficiently.

Quotes About Expressing Your Feelings

"Nobody really enjoys having to pacify their feelings. Its too much like failure; it reminds you of weakness. but feelings dont want to be pacified, either. They want to be fulfilled. You fulfill your positive feelings (love, hope, optimism, appreciation, approval) by connecting with other people, expressing your best self. You fulfill your negative feelings by releasing them. Your whole system recognizes negative feelings as toxic. Its futile to bottle them up, divert them, ignore them, or try to rise above them. Either negativity is leaving or its hanging on - it has no other alternative. As you fulfill emotions, your brain will change and form new patterns, which is the whole goal." - Author: Deepak Chopra

Quotes About Walt Disney Bambi

"I really cite Walt Disney as teaching me everything I know. It sounds crazy, but Im serious! In Bambi, the mother dies, but you dont see the corpse. You see the father, the stag, come up and you see Bambi alone, and that has so much more impact than seeing a mutilated deer." - Author: Matthew Gray Gubler
