Dale Carnegie
“John Wanamaker, fundador de las tiendas que llevan su nombre, confesó una vez: "hace treinta años. he aprendido que es una tontería regañar a los demás. Bastante tengo con vencer mis propias limitaciones sin irritarme por el hecho de que Dios no ha creído conveniente distribuir por igual el don de la inteligencia".”
Dale Carnegie, Cómo ganar amigos e influir sobre las personas

Sigmund Freud
“We are astonished to hear declarations by married women and girls which bear witness to a quite particular attitude to the therapeutic problem: they had always known, they say, that they could only be cured by love.”
Sigmund Freud, Introductory Lectures on Psychoanalysis

Neil deGrasse Tyson
“America will aim no higher than the creation and aggressive marketing of minor consumer products that replace similar, and perfectly satisfactory, consumer products. “America may be losing a competitive edge in many enterprises, from cars to space,” riffed National Public Radio host Scott Simon in the summer of 2010, “but as long as we can devise a five-bladed, mineral-oil-saturated razor, we face the future well-shaved.”

J. Krishnamurti
“Where the mind and heart are held by fear, by lack of understanding, by compulsion, such a mind, though it can think within the confines, within the limitations of that fear, is not really thinking, and its action must ever throw up new barriers. Therefore, its capacity to think is ever being limited. But if the mind frees itself through the understanding of circumstances and, therefore, acts, then that very action is creative thinking.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti, Total Freedom: The Essential Krishnamurti

“There is a story, which even you have preserved, that once upon a time Paethon, the son of Helios, having yoked the steeds in his father’s chariot, because he was not able to drive them in the path of his father, burnt up all that was upon the earth, and was himself destroyed by a thunderbolt.”
Plato, Plato: The Complete Works
