Your success and happiness depend on your willingness to help others solve their problems.
Magic is not about having a puzzle to solve. It's about creating a moment of awe and astonishment. And that can be a beautiful thingdavid blaine
Every humane and patriotic heart must grieve to see a bloody and causeless rebellion, costing thousands of human lives and millions of treasure. But as it was predetermined and inevitable, it was long enough delayed. Now is the appropriate time to solve the greatest problem ever submitted to civilized man.thaddeus stevens
Can they solve the problem of the nagging unanswerable question of justification and vocation? Their principle is the traditional one of classical mysticism: by “experiences” (“kicks”) to transcend the nagged and nagging self altogether and get out of one’s skin, to where no questions are asked nor is there any articulate speech to ask them in.paul goodman
It is natural that people do not want to be involved with us too much. There is no problem down to the smallest egotistical longing which the Gestapo cannot solve. Regarded in this way we are, if a joke is permitted, looked upon as a cross between a general maid and the dustbin of the Reich.reinhard heydrich
A solved problem creates two new problems, and the best prescription for happy living is not to solve any more problems than you have to.russell baker
If God has made the world a perfect mechanism, He has at least conceded so much to our imperfect intellect that in order to predict little parts of it, we need not solve innumerable differential equations, but can use dice with fair success.Max Born
Again I want to emphasize that the study of propaganda must be conducted within the context of a technological society. Propaganda is called upon to solve problems created by technology, to play on maladjustments, and to integrate the individual into a technological world.jacques ellul
Good scientists often possess old-fashioned virtues of the kind school teachers have always professed to despair of ever inculcating in us. These are: a sanguine temperament that expects to solve a problem; power of applicationand thekind of fortitudethat keepsscientists erect inthe face of muchthat might otherwise cast them down; and above all, persistence, a refusal bordering upon obstinacy to give in and admit defeat.1984 The Limits of Science.
Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are part of nature and therefore part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.1932 Where is Science Going? pt.4 (translated byJames Murphy).
Gordon Brown thinks you should solve climate change by changing your lightbulbs. We think you should solve climate change by changing your Government.siân berry
The relation between the white and colored people of this country is the great, paramount, imperative, and all-commanding question for this age and nation to solve.frederick douglass
If you want to get an interesting perspective do not think of Hugh as a traditional 20th century physicist but more of a Renaissance man with interests and skills in many different areas. He was smart and lots of things interested him and he brought the same general conceptual methodology to solve them. The subject matter was not so important as the solution ideas.hugh everett
Trying to solve the worlds problems by making things 5% more efficient is like trying to play the violin with gardening gloves. Not much good will come out of it. We must invent new ways!philippe kahn
When you have a big problem to solve, break it down to smaller ones first.siddharth katragadda
Look at Unix. It was essentially open source before anyone invented the term, and that caused a large number of ways to solve the same problem and left the market to sort them out, which they didn't (the market never will sort out bad quality in anything but the single most important property of the products), and Unix got itself into a position where some horribly demented crapware from Microsoft could compete with it and fool a whole bunch of people for a while.erik naggum
Like a forensic accountant trying to solve a corporate fraud, following the trail of money around the circle is a good way to understand what actually happens as capitalism unfolds.jim stanford
His eyes measured the little chamber. How two people could survive in so small a space was as difficult to grasp as the conventions in contract bridge. Perhaps there was some simple key that would solve the problem, and he would have the subject of another book.j. g. ballard
The one thing that unifies men in a given age is not their individual philosophies but the dominant problem that these philosophies are designed to solve.jacques barzun
There's an old African proverb that says "If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." We have to go far quickly. And that means we have to quickly find a way to change the world's consciousness about exactly what we're facing, and why we have to work to solve it.al gore
Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature . And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are part of nature and therefore part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.max planck
The idea of an isolated American painting , so popular in this country during the thirties, seems absurd to me, just as the idea of a purely American mathematics or physics would seem absurd... And in another sense, the problem doesn’t exist at all; or, if it did, would solve itself: An American is an American and his painting would naturally be qualified by the fact, whether he wills or not. But the basic problems of contemporary painting are independent of any one country.jackson pollock
Society bristles with enigmas which look hard to solve. It is a perfect maze of intrigue.Honore de Balzac, in Letters of Two Brides, The Floating Press, 1 July 2011, p.39
I think Russian people are learning that democracy is not an alien thing; it's not a western invention. It's probably the most affordable mechanism to solve problems inside the country, inside the society because Putin proved to all of us that democracy has a world of alternatives, security forces and police and power abuse and that's why I think eventually the people of Russia will embrace democracy as the least costly institution to help them to solve their daily problems.Garry Kasparov, statement in interview: Monica Attard (April 3, 2005). "Gary Kasparov", Sunday Profile, Australian Broadcasting Company.
A good idea is something that does not solve just one single problem, but rather can solve multiple problems at once.Shigeru Miyamoto, Interviewed by Eurogamer.net, 31 March 2010
One tenth of one percent of the population controls more than forty percent of the wealth. Oh America, how often have you taken necessities from the masses to give luxuries to the classes. If you are to be a truly Christian nation you must solve this problem.Martin Luther King Jr.
