[Quote No.39911] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"Why Avoid 'Troubles Talk'? - You all know people who - when you ask 'How are you?' - respond with a litany of troubles. (In fact, from time to time, some of you may 'talk troubles' yourself, unlikely as that seems.) The English language has a rich assortment of verbs to describe this all-too-common behavior, among them to complain, sound off, kvetch, crab, bellyache, gripe, grumble, croak, growl, grunt, remonstrate, find fault, mutter, and whine. However, I'll suggest reasons why most of the time you should avoid complaining. 1. Complaining is worse than doing nothing. It just digs your hole deeper. 2. Chronic complaining is a turn-off and a downer to others. You are the 'dumper,' and the person receiving your tales of woe becomes the dumpster on whom you have unloaded your negative energy. 3. The negative things you say about yourself to others is also 'self-talk,' a kind of self-hypnosis. When you say something like 'I can never get anything right,' you are arguing for your limitations, and then you will truly own them. You become 'an innocent victim of circumstances.' 4. Complainers attract other complainers and take turns griping in their 'pity parties.' They reinforce each other's views. 5. Complaining causes physical and mental stress. So, besides the diseases directly caused by stress like heart disease and hypertension, you become susceptible to other diseases because of a weakened immune system. 6. Chronic complainers live in a world of their own making. Those who insist 'It's awful, there are no good jobs available,' give up looking for work. Meanwhile, those who don't believe this look for and often find jobs. However, there is also legitimate complaining. For example: --Many of us become cranky and crabby when we're sick. 'I feel awful, and I wish this damned pain would go away' is a complaint that may bring some emotional relief. It's different from this kind: 'Those committee members are always trying to stab me in the back.' Also, some complaints seek to improve a situation and get results. Examples: A plumber fixes your tank, charges you a lot, and departs. But it doesn't function. You complain and ask him to return and so the job right. You buy a piece of equipment, but it doesn't work as advertised. You complain to the seller and get a replacement. When others violate rules or laws governing their conduct, you can file a complaint to set things right. Your neighbor trespasses on your property? You can make a legal complaint. Not being paid for your overtime work? In most jurisdictions, you can bring your complaint. The difference? Some complaining is useless. You can complain about the weather, or how certain people don't meet your expectations, or how inflation keeps going up. Over these matters, you have no influence. It's best not to drown out what's good in your life by complaining. 'You can never get to peace and inner security without first acknowledging all of the good things in your life.' - Doc Childre and Howard Martin (A good resource: For methods on how to turn complaints into opportunities, check this book by Jon Gordon: 'The No Complaining Rule: Positive Ways to Deal with Negativity at Work.')" - Loren Ekroth, Ph.D.

[Quote No.40238] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[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.40240] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[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... I have no fear of another comparable decline." - Arthur W. Loasby (President of the Equitable Trust Company), quoted in NYT, Friday, October 25, 1929. --"We feel that fundamentally Wall Street is sound, and that for people who can afford to pay for them outright, good stocks are cheap at these prices." - Goodbody and Company market-letter quoted in The New York Times, Friday, October 25, 1929. --"This is the time to buy stocks. 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. Pearce market letter quoted in the New York Herald Tribune, October 30, 1929. --"Some pretty intelligent people are now buying stocks... 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. The former great periods of prosperity in America averaged eleven years. On this basis we now have three more years to go before the tailspin." - Stuart Chase (American economist and author), NY Herald Tribune, November 1, 1929. --"Hysteria has now disappeared from Wall Street." - The Times of London, November 2, 1929. --"The Wall Street crash doesn't mean that there will be any general or serious business depression... 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... I have every confidence that there will be a revival of activity in the spring, and that during this coming year the country will make steady progress." - Andrew W. Mellon, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury December 31, 1929. --"I am convinced that through these measures we have reestablished confidence." - Herbert Hoover, December 1929. --"[1930 will be] a splendid employment year." - U.S. Dept. of Labor, New Year's Forecast, December 1929. --"For the immediate future, at least, the outlook (stocks) is bright." - Irving Fisher, Ph.D. in Economics, in early 1930.

There has been no significant bank or industrial failure. That danger, too, is safely behind us." - Herbert Hoover, President of the United States, May 1, 1930. --"...by May or June the spring recovery forecast in our letters of last December and November should clearly be apparent..." - Harvard Economic Society (HES) May 17, 1930. --"Gentleman, you have come sixty days too late.

Roosevelt, 1933. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Property--Travel- --"There is no danger that the 'titanic' will sink.
