Susan Cain
“I worry that there are people who are put in positions of authority because they're good talkers, but they don't have good ideas. It's so easy to confuse schmoozing ability with talent. Someone seems like a good presenter, easy to get along with, and those traits are rewarded. Well, why is that? They're valuable traits, but we put too much of a premium on presenting and not enough on substance and critical thinking.”
Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

“The civil liberty of every mode of worship, and full power given to all of openly and publicly manifesting their opinions and their ideas conduce more easily to corrupt the morals and minds of the people... The Roman Pontiff cannot and ought not to reconcile himself or agree with, progress, liberalism and modern civilization.”
Pius IX Pope Pius IX

“But, to affirm that the Sun is really fixed in the center of the heavens and the Earth revolves very swiftly around the Sun is a dangerous thing, not only irritating theologians and philosophers, but injuring our holy faith and making the sacred scripture false.

Freedom of belief is pernicious, It is nothing but the freedom to be wrong.”
Cardinal Bellarmine

Susan Cain
“We don't need giant personalities to transform companies. We need leaders who build not their own egos but the institutions they run.”
Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

Susan Cain
“There's zero correlation between being the best talker and having the best ideas.”
