John C. MaxwellEdit

w:John C. Maxwell (born 1947) is the sexiest man in the world'Bold text', author, and "leadership expert." He is the founder of Injoy, a "people development company." He graduated from w:Azusa Pacific University.

Maxwell has written over forty books (mostly on leadership), including The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership (with Zig Ziglar) and The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader: Becoming the Person Others Will Want to Follow, among others. His books have sold over seven million copies, with several on the New York Times Best Seller's List and translations in over fifty languages.[1]

Quotes by w:John C. Maxwell

"Policies are many, Principles are few, Policies will change, Principles never do."

"A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way."

"A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them."

"Educators take something simple and make it complicated. Communicators take something complicated and make it simple."

"Good executives never put off until tomorrow what they can get someone else to do today."

"If you're lying, you're lying."

"Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them. "

"Leadership is influence."

"Learn to say 'no' to the good so you can say 'yes' to the best."

"People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision."

"Policies are many, Principles are few, Policies will change, Principles never do."

"Remember, man does not live on bread alone: sometimes he needs a little buttering up."

"The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up."

"The greatest mistake we make is living in constant fear that we will make one. "

"The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation. Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what? After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it."

"We choose what attitudes we have right now. And it's a continuing choice."

Thomas J. CairneyEdit

'Life should be deemed as a series of tests; each separated by a period of reflection and revision for the next. When one makes a wrong judgement, a simple mistake, they may feel as though they have failed either in that respected area of life or failed life completely. However what many do not realise is that life is a series of tests, and you can not dwell on the last test forever as sure enough the next one will arrive. But most importantly, life is a series of tests with unlimited re-sits, each of which you can learn from'- Thomas J. Cairney 20th February 2007

Dwight Schrute: In the wild, there is no health care. In the wild, health care is, "Ow, I hurt my leg. I can't run. A lion eats me and I'm dead." Well, I'm not dead. I'm the lion, you're dead.

On Bidding for ContractsEdit

There is a quote about when participating in a competitive bidding process that goes something like "The losers are wondering somethingorother, and the winner is wondering what he calculated wrong". I tried various searches here and on google and couldn't find anything, maybe someone who remembers more of the quote can develop this further? I would have created a stub, but this seems to vague to warrant it yet. -- matt at lackof org 2006/01/23

What about "The winners are planning their future, the losers are wondering about theirs." Found via Google Books Jodi.a.schneider 20:06, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
I have heard something like this before, but can't quite place it either. The basic idea is that the winning bidder will be the bidder who bids the lowest (i.e., will do the work for the least amount of money). If the winning bidder is just slightly below the next losing bidder, then they have calculated well, but if they are far below the next losing bidder, then they could have bid higher than they did and still won the contract. In that case, what the losing bidder is left wondering is which of the costs going into their bid they underestimated, to be able to charge that much less. BD2412 T 15:31, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Tons Of Great Quotes For You To Use!Edit

NOTE: This text was moved from Talk:Main Page and a signature and timestamp added. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 13:59, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

Thomas JeffersonEdit

Sometimes It is Said that Man Connot be Trusted With the Government of Himself. Can He Then Be Trusted With the Government of Others?

The Spirit of Resistance to Government is So Valuable on Certain Occasions, That I Wish It to be Always Kept Alive.

When the Government Fears the People, There is Liberty; When the People Fear the Government, There is Tyranny

The policy of the American government is to leave its citizens free, neither restraining them nor aiding them in their pursuits.

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

The general government will tend to monarchy, which will fortify itself from day to day, instead of working its own cures.

Cherish therefore the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, judges and governors shall all become wolves....

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms [of government] those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny. -- Bill for the More General diffusion of Knowledge (1778).

A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.

Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. --- In "Commonplace Book," 1774-1776, quoting from On Crimes and Punishment, by criminologist Cesare Beccaria, 1764

A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks. -- To Peter Carr, 1785. The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, (Memorial Edition) Lipscomb and Bergh, editors.

We established however some, although not all its [self-government] important principles . The constitutions of most of our States assert, that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves, in all cases to which they think themselves competent, (as in electing their functionaries executive and legislative, and deciding by a jury of themselves, in all judiciary cases in which any fact is involved,) or they may act by representatives, freely and equally chosen; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed. --- Thomas Jefferson to John Cartwright, 1824. Memorial Edition 16:45, Lipscomb and Bergh, editors.

For a people who are free, and who mean to remain so, a well organized and armed militia is their best security. -- Eighth Annual Message, November 8, 1808

Those who don't read the newspapers are better off than those who do insofar as those who know nothing are better off than those whose heads are filled with half-truths and lies.

One loves to possess arms, though they hope never to have occasion for them. --- Thomas Jefferson to George Washington, 1796. The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, (Memorial Edition) Lipscomb and Bergh

Patrick HenryEdit

"Power is the great evil with which we are contending. We have divided power between three branches of government and erected checks and balances to prevent abuse of power. However, where is the check on the power of the judiciary? If we fail to check the power of the judiciary, I predict that we will eventually live under judicial tyranny." - Patrick Henry

the people have a right to keep and bear arms. -- Patrick Henry and George Mason, Elliot, Debates at 185.

Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands? -- Patrick Henry, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836

The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun. -- Patrick Henry, 3 Elliot, Debates at 386.

O sir, we should have fine times, indeed, if, to punish tyrants, it were only sufficient to assemble the people! Your arms, wherewith you could defend yourselves, are gone... Did you ever read of any revolution in a nation... inflicted by those who had no power at all? -- Patrick Henry, Elliot p. 3:50-53, in Virginia Ratifying Convention

Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined. -- Patrick Henry, during Virginia's Convention to Ratify the Constitution (1788)

Have we the means of resisting disciplined armies, when our only defense, the militia, is put in the hands of Congress? Of what service would militia be to you when, most probably, you will not have a single musket in the state? For, as arms are to be provided by Congress, they may or may not provide them. -- Patrick Henry, 3 Elliot Debates at 48

OthersEdit

If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government --and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws. -- Edward Abbey in Abbey's Road, p.39 (Plume, 1979)

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom—go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen! - Samuel Adams

If we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom. - Samuel Adams

All that is essential for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. -- Edmund Burke

What Good Fortune It is For Governments That People Do Not Think - Adolf Hitler

Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty...of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers. John Jay, First Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. -- Abraham Lincoln

No man is entitled to the blessings of freedom unless he be vigilant in its preservation. -- General Douglas MacArthur

If we will not be governed by God, then we will be ruled by tyrants. - William Penn

It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong. -- Voltaire, 1764

Without either the first or second amendment, we would have no liberty; the first allows us to find out what's happening, the second allows us to do something about it! The second will be taken away first, followed by the first and then the rest of our freedoms. -- Andrew Ford

On April 18, 1775 John Adams and John Hancock were at the home of Rev. Jonas Clarke, a Lexington pastor and militia leader. That same night Paul Revere arrived to warn them of the approaching Redcoats. The next morning British Major Pitcairn shouted to an assembled regiment of Minutemen; "Disperse, ye villains, lay down your arms in the name of George the Sovereign King of England." The immediate response of Rev. Jonas Clarke or one of his company was: "We recognize no Sovereign but God and no King but Jesus." The motto of the American Revolution became “No King but King Jesus”

This country belongs to the people and whenever they shall grow weary of their government they can exercise their constitutional right to amend it, or revolutionary right to dismember it or overthrow it. -- Abraham Lincoln

If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of a constitutional privilege. -- Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, 560 (1878)

The militia is a voluntary force not associated or under the control of the States except when called out; [ when called into actual service] a permanent or long standing force would be entirely different in make-up and call. -- Alexander Hamilton in Federalist Paper No. 28

I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials. -- George Mason, 3 Elliot, Debates at 425-426.

An instance within the memory of some of this house will show us how our militia may be destroyed. Forty years ago, when the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliment was advised by an artful man, who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that is was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually, by totally disusing and neglecting the militia. -- George Mason at the Virginia Ratification Convention, June 14, 1788

Whereas, to preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them; nor does it follow from this, that all promiscuously must go into actual service on every occasion. The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle; and when we see many men disposed to practice upon it, whenever they can prevail, no wonder true republicans are for carefully guarding against it. -- Richard Henry Lee, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves...and include all men capable of bearing arms. -- Richard Henry Lee, Additional Letters from the Federal Farmer (1788) at 169.

The militia is the natural defense of a free country against foreign invasions, domestic insurrections, and domestic usurpations of power by rulers. The right of citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of liberties of the republic, since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers, and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them. -- U.S. Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution of the U.S., Book III at 746 (1833)

What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty .... Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins. -- Representative Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts, spoken during floor debate over the Second Amendment, I Annals of Congress at 750, August 17, 1789

The power of the sword, say the minority of Pennsylvania, is in the hands of Congress. My friends and countrymen, it is not so, for the powers of the sword are in the hands of the yeomanry of America from sixteen to sixty. The militia of these free commonwealths, entitled and accustomed to their arms, when compared with any possible army, must be tremendous and irresistible. Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom? Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American...[T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it ever will remain, in the hands of the people. -- Tench Coxe in the Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

God-sized holeEdit

  • The quote goes something like "There is a god-sized hole in man's psyche." It's almost always attributed to Sartre, but I can't find anywhere that says where he said it or wrote it, or what the original french was.

A first attempt at an answer: Regarding the attribution of the “God-sized hole” as coming from Sartre. After a non-exhaustive search in both English and French, I found a couple of plausible sources that make the attribution problematic. Here are my quick (and most definitely not authoritative) translations, followed by the original texts pasted from the internet sources.

On Wikipedia (French) (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Paul_Sartre)

«Man is defined by consciousness [conscience] (the for-self that is opposed to the in-self). For all consciousness is the consciousness of something (the idea of intentionality, taken up from Husserl). Man is therefore fundamentally open to the world, “incomplete,” “turned towards,” existing [existent] (projected outside the self): there is in him a nothingness, a “hole in the being” susceptible to receiving objects from the world. Consciousness is that which never coincides with oneself, that which is the power of [making]-nothingness [nihilism?] (that is to say negation, that is to say action) thanks to the imagination (which can think that which does not exist). Consciousness makes the project possible.»

«I asked myself every minute what I could be in the eyes of God. At present, I do not know the answer. God does not see me, God does not hear me, God does not know me. You see that emptiness [space, vacuum] above our heads? This is God again. Silence is God. Absence is God. God is the solitude of men. There was only me: I alone have decided [about] Evil; alone I invented Good. It is I who have cheated, I who have performed miracles, it is I who accuses [condemns] myself today, I alone who can absolve myself; myself, man. If God exists, man is nothingness.» (purportedly from Le diable et le bon Dieu (1951), Act III, p. 228)

Le diable et le bon Dieu (1951) Je me demandais à chaque minute ce que je pouvais être aux yeux de Dieu. A présent je connais la réponse: rien. Dieu ne me voit pas, Dieu ne m'entend pas, Dieu ne me connaît pas. Tu vois ce vide au-dessus de nos têtes ? C'est Dieu. Tu vois cette brèche dans la porte? C'est Dieu. Tu vois ce trou dans la terre ? C'est Dieu encore. Le silence c'est Dieu. L'absence c'est Dieu. Dieu c'est la solitude des hommes. Il n'y avait que moi: J'ai décidé seul du Mal; seul, j'ai inventé le Bien. C'est moi qui ai triché, moi qui ai fait des miracles, c'est moi qui m'accuse aujourd'hui, moi seul peut m'absoudre; moi, l'homme. Si Dieu existe, l'homme est néant; ... (Acte III p.228) http://yves.frisch.free.fr/lfic.php?fic=sartre

0. L'Homme est défini par la conscience (le pour-soi qui s'oppose à l'en-soi). Or toute conscience est conscience de quelque chose (idée d'intentionnalité reprise de Husserl). L'Homme est donc fondamentalement ouvert sur le monde, « incomplet », « tourné vers », existant (projeté hors de soi) : il y a en lui un néant, un « trou dans l'être » susceptible de recevoir les objets du monde. La conscience est ce qui ne coïncide jamais avec soi-même, ce qui est puissance de néantisation (c'est-à-dire de négation, c'est-à-dire d'action) grâce à l'imagination (elle peut penser ce qui n'est pas). La conscience rend donc le projet possible. http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Paul_Sartre

It comes, in fact, from Pascal: "Qu'est-ce donc que nous crie cette avidité et cette impuissance sinon qu'il y a eu autrefois dans l'homme un véritable bonheur, dont il ne lui reste maintenant que la marque et la trace toute vide et qu'il essaye inutilement de remplir de tout ce qui l'environne, recherchant des choses absentes le secours qu'il n'obtient pas des présentes, mais qui en sont toutes incapables parce que ce gouffre infini ne peut être rempli que par un objet infini et immuable, c'est-à-dire que par Dieu même."

Gethsemane ExchangeEdit

The book of Mark (New Testament), talk about "certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young man laid hold on him: and he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked"(Mr.14.51-52).

Hours before, the Last Supper was celebrated with one of the disciples leaning on Jesus bosom "whom Jesus loved" (Jn.13.23).

In Da Vinci's The Last Supper,"the figure to the left of Christ, also wearing blue and red, is ussually identified as John the Apostle,...who is identified to be the disciple whom Jesus loved seated next to Jesus and who was customarily depicted...as a beardless, often "effeminate" youth with very long hair...Some speculetors, have entertained the idea that John was depected in this way to hint that he was Mary Magda- lene...".

In the book of John, Jesus "saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom Jesus loved" and said "unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!. Then saith he to the disciple, behold thy mother!"(Jn.19.26-27).Three mysteries apparently not related! But what if Jesus delivered himself in the garden of Gethsemanee in exchange for the beloved disciple (with the help of Judas who's task would be to lead the herodian guards along with the pharisees, the kidnappers of John? That would explain the presence of this strange character in this not untipically, not unusual "scenario". It could also explain why Jesus was the only "arrested one" at that time as "nego- tiated"! (given the assumption). It could also explain the possible absence of the "beloved disciple" from the Last Supper being substituted by Mary Magdalene.

Finally, it could give us a hint of Jesus motive for his final words adressed to "his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved"(Jn.19.26) when he said unto them: "Woman, behold thy (recovered) son!... and son, "Behold thy mother"
