"[Should you trust everything experts tell you? No! Experts make mistakes all the time. Your best defence is to listen to everyone but think through everything for yourself. Keep the following quote in mind for example, especially when others criticise or discourage:] There is no danger that the 'Titanic' will sink. The boat is unsinkable and nothing but inconvenience will be suffered by the passengers." - Phillip Franklin
White Star Line Vice-President, 1912. RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on 15 April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York City. The sinking of Titanic caused the deaths of 1,514 people in one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history. She was the largest ship afloat at the time of her maiden voyage. One of three Olympic class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line, she was built between 1909–11 by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. She carried 2,224 people.

[Quote No.40239] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"[Everyone makes mistakes, even experts. So don’t trust others blindly. Buddha makes this same point – “Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious [and other] books [newspaper or other media]. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it." It is important to take this into account when others are criticising or discouraging. Also when you or another person makes a mistake, don’t be too hard on yourself or them, you or they are not the first and won’t be the last. Just try to use it to grow in compassion, understanding and wisdom so you and they can make the future better for everyone in the future.] --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Money—Invest- [Just before the worst stock market crash and subsequent worldwide depression, 1927-1933] --"We will not have any more crashes in our time." - John Maynard Keynes in 1927. --"I cannot help but raise a dissenting voice to statements that we are living in a fool's paradise, and that prosperity in this country must necessarily diminish and recede in the near future." - E. H. H. Simmons, President, New York Stock Exchange, January 12, 1928. --"There will be no interruption of our permanent prosperity." - Myron E. Forbes, President, Pierce Arrow Motor Car Co., January 12, 1928. --"No Congress of the United States ever assembled, on surveying the state of the Union, has met with a more pleasing prospect than that which appears at the present time. In the domestic field there is tranquility and contentment...and the highest record of years of prosperity. In the foreign field there is peace, the goodwill which comes from mutual understanding." - Calvin Coolidge, December 4, 1928. --"There may be a recession in stock prices, but not anything in the nature of a crash." - Irving Fisher, leading U.S. economist , New York Times, Sept. 5, 1929. --"Stock prices have reached what looks like a permanently high plateau. I do not feel there will be soon if ever a 50 or 60 point break from present levels, such as (bears) have predicted. I expect to see the stock market a good deal higher within a few months." - Irving Fisher, Ph.D. in economics, Oct. 17, 1929. --"This crash is not going to have much effect on business." - Arthur Reynolds, Chairman of Continental Illinois Bank of Chicago, October 24, 1929. --"There will be no repetition of the break of yesterday...

This is the time to recall the words of the late J. P. Morgan... that any man who is bearish on America will go broke. Within a few days there is likely to be a bear panic rather than a bull panic. Many of the low prices as a result of this hysterical selling are not likely to be reached again in many years." - R. W. McNeel, market analyst, as quoted in the New York Herald Tribune, October 30, 1929. --"Buying of sound, seasoned issues now will not be regretted" - E. A.

Unless we are to have a panic -- which no one seriously believes, stocks have hit bottom." - R. W. McNeal, financial analyst in October 1929. --"The decline is in paper values, not in tangible goods and services...America is now in the eighth year of prosperity as commercially defined.

For six years American business has been diverting a substantial part of its attention, its energies and its resources on the speculative game... Now that irrelevant, alien and hazardous adventure is over. Business has come home again, back to its job, providentially unscathed, sound in wind and limb, financially stronger than ever before." - Business Week, November 2, 1929. --"...despite its severity, we believe that the slump in stock prices will prove an intermediate movement and not the precursor of a business depression such as would entail prolonged further liquidation..." - Harvard Economic Society (HES), November 2, 1929. --"... a serious depression seems improbable; [we expect] recovery of business next spring, with further improvement in the fall." - HES, November 10, 1929. --"The end of the decline of the Stock Market will probably not be long, only a few more days at most." - Irving Fisher, Professor of Economics at Yale University, November 14, 1929. --"In most of the cities and towns of this country, this Wall Street panic will have no effect." - Paul Block (President of the Block newspaper chain), editorial, November 15, 1929. --"Financial storm definitely passed." - Bernard Baruch, cablegram to Winston Churchill, November 15, 1929. --"I see nothing in the present situation that is either menacing or warrants pessimism...

[Quote No.40295] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"Far more important than any particular piece of knowledge, than geography or arithmetic or spelling, is this love of clearness in our mental life and instinctive hatred of confusion and obscurity. Let us learn to know what we know clearly and definitely, and also how we know it. The great intellectual need of men and women in the outer world is not so much more knowledge as it is better knowledge and better thinking. There is much philosophy in the humorist's remark, 'It was never my ignorance that done me up, but the things I know'd that wasn't so.' The great enemies of intellectual life are superstition, gullibility, and fallacious reasoning. A mere knowledge of facts, important as that is, is no safeguard against these. A conscious desire and resolve to think clearly is the true remedy." - Edward O. Sisson

"In one sense the whole process of development consists of the formation of habits; for knowledge itself, and the powers of thought, as well as the higher elements in the will, all depend upon the establishment of fixed ways of reacting to given stimuli. Consequently, the general laws of habituation underlie the whole of education." - Edward O. Sisson

"Self-Worth Comes from Solving Worthy Problems... When prople wrestle with problems 'worthy of attack,' they may feel overwhelmed, and they may even occasionally be defeated. But it is only by combating formidable opponents that people can truly [develop and] demonstrate their power and potency. The value of worthy problems applies especially well to the raising of children. Many parents attempt to shield their children from the problems they experienced when they were young. But, often as not, it was facing and ultimately overcoming those very problems that made them strong and capable adults. The Swedish writer Ellen Key was thinking along these lines when she wrote: At every step, the child should be allowed to meet the real experience of life; the thorns should never be plucked from his roses." - Dr. Mardy Grothe

[Quote No.40490] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"[A free media is vital to the success of a democracy. This is because if there is not accurate, timely information, for example propaganda or deliberate or inadvertent misinformation or media blackouts, individuals do not have the facts to make informed choices and vote in their best interests. The media, sometimes called the 'Fourth Estate', is well aware of their responsibilities to perform this task in a free, democratic society and most country's media organisations include this reponsibility in their training and Code of Ethics.] The estates of the realm, originally conceptualised by Montesquieu, are sectors of the community that have power to influence the policy-making process within a society. They are usually seen as the executive - previously the clergy (First Estate), the legislative - previously the nobility (Second Estate), the judicial - previously the middle class commoners (Third Estate), and the mainstream press (Fourth Estate). There is also the less common concept of a fifth estate which has no fixed meaning, but is used to describe any class or group in society other than the previous four estates. It has been used to describe trade unions, the poor, the proletariat, media outlets, including the blogosphere, that see themselves in opposition to mainstream media (the official Press) and 'networked individuals'. It should not be confused with a 'Fifth Column', which has been used to describe subversive or insurgent elements in a society. It got this name from a 1936 radio address by Emilio Mola, a Nationalist General during the 1936–39 Spanish Civil War. As his army approached Madrid, a message was broadcast that the four columns of his forces outside the city would be supported by a 'fifth column' of his supporters inside the city, intent on undermining the Republican government from within." - Wikipedia.org

"You never understand everything [for the more you know-‘known knowns’, the more you discover you don’t know – ‘known unknowns’. So as you answer one question and push back the bounds of knowledge, more questions appear and the greater the perimeter of mystery becomes]. When one understands everything, one has gone crazy." - Philip Anderson

[Quote No.40698] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"There is only one truly serious philosophical problem, and that is suicide. Judging whether life is or is not worth living [including ‘Why?’ - ‘What is the meaning of life?’ and ‘How?’] amounts to answering the fundamental question of philosophy [especially the philosophy of Existentialism. Of course it depends to a great degree on the person’s current circumstances, needs and dreams and the life-skills, attitudes and knowledge they have and use to survive and thrive or not]." - Albert Camus

[Quote No.40716] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"Education is the most backward of all large industries. [One of the ways it is backward is its focus on readying students for meeting the needs of employers and work, with work-skills, rather than vastly expanding its concerns to meeting the full needs of the individual with life-skills, which has work-skills as a subset. In this way each individual would be much better prepared to fulfill their potential and manage their life better, while making fewer major mistakes that can take years to recover from if at all and cost the individual and community dearly in direct and opportunity costs.]" - Arthur Lewis

[Quote No.40719] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"It is, nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of enquiry; for the delicate little plant [of curiosity], aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom [to play-explore, guess-hypothesize, try-experiment, fail, discover – results and refine-conclude]; without this it goes to wrack and ruin without fail." - Albert Einstein
