[Quote No.30743] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"There are actually three classes of Latin academic honors in use for graduating students in the United States and around the world, and most universities use at least two of them. All universities use 'cum laude' graduate, which means 'with praise'. Some universities also add 'magna cum laude', which translates to 'with great praise'. The third honor is 'summa cum laude', for 'with highest praise', used for only the very best students. These distinctions are very helpful in an individual's career, especially when applying for work, and should be aimed for, even if not achieved, by every serious student." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

"Without education, each new generation would be limited to whatever it could learn in its lifetime and the next generation would have to begin learning everything all over from scratch. There would hardly be enough time to learn more than just the basics and then after many failures. Therefore do not avoid learning from others - in person or in books, but also test all they say and search for answers through your own observations and experiments." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

"Mainstream media needs to find an audience as it is a commercial enterprise. Therefore it often panders to people's baser instincts, follows the herd and does less research and fact checking than it should do to be highly respected and as such has done much to earn the nickname, the 'lamestream media'. Therefore the saying, 'You can't trust everything you read in the paper' is truer now than even in the past and so wise people do their own additional research to explore alternative views and get a balanced picture to inform their own decision-making." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

[Quote No.36073] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"When you analyze the history of great empires, ultimately their downfall was the false myths they held. The Romans believed Caesar was a god. The Aztecs believed their Spanish enemies were the angels come to earth, to help them. The British believed Hitler was no threat. The Spanish believed their Armada was invincible. The French believed their Maginot Line would protect them from the German aggressors. All paid a fatal price for believing in myths. To secure our lives all people must continually be skeptical and therefore looking for proof in what we think so that we don't rely on a myth that brings our world and all our hopes crashing down. Truth and the scientific method to establish it are therefore vitally important to having the real data to make informed choices, and through that, the most of our freedom, our potential and our equal inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and private property!" - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

"EDITORIAL POLICY FOR WWW.IMAGI-NATIVES.COM This site collects into one place on the internet insights and wisdom that it is hoped will enhance and speed up life-long learning and education around meeting human needs and desires to allow individuals to reach their potential quicker for the good of all. The editor will be designated as Seymour@imagi-natives.com - as in 'See more at imagi-natives.com'. The editor will annotate within [ ] brackets the quotes to better explain and expand on the message the editor wishes to make by publishing the quote on the site. The ‘he/she’ dilemma and policy response: Within the site, the quote editor will keep to the male or female author’s original words in the quote but it should be noted that even if a quote says ‘he’ or ‘she’, or ‘man’ as in referring to ‘humanity’, the quote is referring to both male and females unless otherwise specified or obvious. On occasions the editor will try to counter the historical bias of using the male to designate both male and female but it is not done with all. An example of correcting this historical bias would be as follows: 'It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great [wo]man is [s]he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude. [...and thereby follows the path his [or her] heart, mind and soul believes is right, just and necessary.]' Ralph Waldo Emerson, (1803 - 1882), American essayist, poet and philosopher. On rare occasions a quote will exceed the length specified by the software designer for the maximum length of a quote on the site, which works out to be a little over 9000 words. To still be able to publish all that the editor believes is important and germane, the quote will be continued in another quote 'space' with each quote identified as a continuation. For example, 'This is part one of three quotes. This is due to its unusual length. To find the rest of this quote please search under the name/s of the author of this quote or if this quote is from an article or speech that has a title which is in the quote by searching using the title's key words.' For example the quote of the document, ‘THE LIQUIDATION OF GOVERNMENT DEBT’ by Carmen M. Reinhart and M. Belen Sbrancia. " - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

[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... 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 are indications that the severest phase of the recession is over..." - Harvard Economic Society (HES) Jan 18, 1930. --"There is nothing in the situation to be disturbed about." - Secretary of the Treasury Andrew Mellon, Feb 1930. --"The spring of 1930 marks the end of a period of grave concern...American business is steadily coming back to a normal level of prosperity." - Julius Barnes, head of Hoover's National Business Survey Conference, Mar 16, 1930. --"... the outlook continues favorable..." - Harvard Economic Society (HES) Mar 29, 1930. --"... the outlook is favorable..." - Harvard Economic Society (HES) Apr 19, 1930. --"While the crash only took place six months ago, I am convinced we have now passed through the worst -- and with continued unity of effort we shall rapidly recover. 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. The depression is over." - Herbert Hoover, responding to a delegation requesting a public works program to help speed the recovery, June 1930. --"... irregular and conflicting movements of business should soon give way to a sustained recovery..." - Harvard Economic Society (HES) June 28, 1930. --"... the present depression has about spent its force..." - Harvard Economic Society (HES), Aug 30, 1930. --"We are now near the end of the declining phase of the depression." - Harvard Economic Society (HES) Nov 15, 1930. --"Stabilization at [present] levels is clearly possible." - Harvard Economic Society (HES) Oct 31, 1931. --[Eventually the situation deteriorated so badly that the following was stated when gold was appropriated by the government from its citizens] "All safe deposit boxes in banks or financial institutions have been sealed... and may only be opened in the presence of an agent of the I.R.S." - President F.D. Roosevelt, 1933. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Property--Travel- --"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. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Work—Leadership- --"You will never amount to very much." - A Munich teacher to a ten-year-old Albert Einstein, 1889. --"That kid can’t play baseball." - Tommy Holmes, Milwaukee Braves minor league manager, 1952, appraising Henry Aaron, who went on to break Babe Ruth's all-time record for home runs. --“Just so-so in center field." - – New York Daily News after the premiere of Willie Mays, 1951. --"He’ll never be any good." - Robert Irsay, Baltimore Colts owner, 1983, evaluating future Pro Bowl and Super Bowl champion quarterback John Elway. --"You ain’t going nowhere, son.

"Does the following make sense? 'It's hard to be happy if we don't achieve what we want. It's hard to achieve what we want if we don't act. It's hard to act if we don't plan. It's hard to plan if we don't dream. It's hard to dream if we don't learn. It's hard to learn if we don't read.' Now that's all well and good, you may be thinking, but few of us have much time to read and then what should we read 'that will help'? That's the reason we think getting daily a few helpful and inspirational quotes, that are quick and easy to read, from knowledgeable and successful humans throughout history about the key need areas in our lives, as provided by the imagi-natives.com 'quote newsletter', over time can make a big difference to the atmosphere in our lives and the attitudes, skills and knowledge we use in our 'life, liberty and pursuit of happiness'.

"[A story - with a message about the value of wisdom.] - Wisdom, Success, Wealth, Love and Happiness - A woman came out of her house and saw 5 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said ‘I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat.’ ‘Is the man of the house home?’, they asked. 'No’, she said ‘He's out.’ ‘Then we cannot come in,’ they replied. In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened. ‘Go tell them I am home and invite them in!’ The woman went out and invited the men in. ‘We do not go into a House together’ they replied. ‘Why is that?’ she wanted to know. One of the old men explained: ‘His name is Success,’ he said pointing to one of his friends, and then he pointed to each of the others in turn introducing them as Wealth, Love and Happiness.' Lastly he introduced himself, 'I am Wisdom.’ Then he added, ‘Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home.’ The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. ‘How nice!,’ he said. ‘Since that is the case, let us invite Success or better yet, Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!’ His wife disagreed. ‘My dear, why don't we invite Love or Happiness?’ Their daughter-in-law was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: ‘Would it not be better to invite Wisdom? Our home will then be filled with Wisdom!’ ‘Let us hear our daughter-in-law's advice,’ said the husband to his wife. ‘Go out and invite Wisdom to be our guest.’ The woman went out and asked the 5 old men, ‘Which one of you is Wisdom? Please come in and be our guest.’ Wisdom got up and started walking toward the house. The other 4 also got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Success, Wealth, Love and Happiness: ‘I only invited Wisdom, Why are you coming in?’ The old men replied together: ‘If you had invited any of the others, the rest of us would've stayed out, but since you invited Wisdom, wherever He goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Wisdom, there is also Success, Wealth, Love and Happiness!!’ " - Seymour@imagi-natives.com
