Quotations: Thinking and Creativity

Inspired by a fantastic cartoon posted by Orac which introduces the idea of "pre-conceptual science" (!) I found this collection of quotations, including:

"The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn." -- Alvin Toffler

"Profits, like sausages... are esteemed most by those who know least about what goes into them." -- Alvin Toffler

"I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody." -- Bill Cosby

"I have often wondered how it is that every man loves himself more than all the rest of men, but yet sets less value on his own opinion of himself than on the opinion of others." -- Marcus Aurelius

"One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time." -- Andre Gide

"Inspiration comes slowly and quietly." -- Brenda Ueland
