[To Worry Is To Acknowledge That The World Is Unpredictable, And There Is Power In Understanding One's Own Powerlessness At Times. But Too Often Worry Takes On Life Of Its Own. Men Are Quite Prone To This. They'll Plague Themselves With So Many 'what If's And 'if Only's That They Soon Forget To Ponder The True Possibilities Before Them. Which Inevitably Lead To Poor Decisions. Whatever Happens Will Happen. Sometimes We Have Say Over The Future. Sometimes We Don't. Either Way, Worrying Alone Never Accomplishes Anything.]

"Teachers, you dont teach a subject, you teach a child."

Roman Vishniac Quotes

"Everything made by human hands looks terrible under magnification--crude, rough, and asymmetrical. But in nature every bit of life is lovely. And the more magnification we use, the more details are brought out, perfectly formed, like endless sets of boxes within boxes."

Aditya Chakrabortty Quotes

"Economics ought to be a magpie discipline, taking in philosophy, history and politics. But heterodox approaches have long since been banished from most faculties, claims Tony Lawson. In the 1970s, when he started teaching at Cambridge, the economics faculty still boasted legends such as Nicky Kaldor and Joan Robinson. "There were big debates, and students would study politics, the history of economic thought." And now? "Nothing. No debates, no politics or history of economic thought and the courses are nearly all maths."How do elites remain in charge? If the tale of the economists is any guide, by clearing out the opposition and then blocking their ears to reality. The result is the one were all paying for."

Victoria Pendleton Quotes

"Steve [sports psychiatrist] had already taught me to try and stop worrying so much about pleasing everyone. We knew that this was one of my most draining flaws and he again used three groups to clarify my thinking. There would always be some people, Steve said, who would care about me and love me. In contrast there would also be a select group of people who would never warm to me - no matter what I did. And in the middle came the overwhelming mass who were largely indifferent to any of my failures or triumphs. I needed to understand that most people didnt really care what I did or said. All my anguish about how they might perceive me was redundant. Steve helped me realize that I spent too much time trying to please those oblivious people in the middle or, more problematically, the small group who would never change their critical opinion of me. I should concentrate on the people who really did show concern for me."

Ry Murakami Quotes

"But sometimes things happen that no one hopes for. Events that cause everything youve worked towards, the life youve carefully constructed piece by piece, to come tumbling down all around you. No one is to blame, but youre left with a wound you cant heal on your own and cant believe youll ever learn to accept, so you struggle to escape the pain. Only time can heal wounds as deep as that - a lot of time - and all you can really do is place yourself in its hands and try to consider the passing of each day a victory. You tough it out moment by moment, hour by hour, and after some weeks or months you begin to see signs of recovery. Slowly the wound heals into a scar."
