A Few Favorite Quotes

The most fundamental lessons we learn in life can usually be condensed down into a few sentences; even a few words.  Whether they are quotes, maxims, poems or whatever, these nuggets of wisdom can often put glass windows in brick wills.  However, just because we can see a truth doesn’t mean we can reach it.

This picture has nothing to do with what I’m writing about…

As I am sitting here in my Macroeconomics class… I wish such condensed wisdom in the world of economics existed.  That instead of three hour lectures detailing demand curves I could read three quotes from Allan Greenspan and accept my course credits.  I guess I will have to keep looking.

In the meantime, though, I thought I’d throw down some of my favorite quotes, as well as the most recent maxim I wrote.  Enjoy.

“The difference between insanity and genius is measured by success”
    Elliot Carver – James Bond: Tomorrow Never Dies 
“Education costs money, but then so does ignorance”
Moser, Sir Claus
 “The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter”
Winston Churchill
“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work”
Thomas A. Edison
“Even the sharpest nails still need a hammer”
Sebastian Scholl
It may be beyond bold to throw my own quote at the end of a list sporting such names as Elliot Carver…but just take them one at a time, and don’t make connections between them!
