Your success and happiness depend on your willingness to help others solve their problems.
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
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
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).
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
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
Solving the population problem is not going to solve the problems of racism… of sexism… of religious intolerance… of war… of gross economic inequality But if you don’t solve the population problem, you’re not going to solve any of those problems. Whatever problem you’re interested in, you’re not going to solve it unless you also solve the population problem. Whatever your cause, it’s a lost cause without population control.paul r. ehrlich
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
It doesn't matter how much you want. What really matters is how much you want it. The extent and complexity of the problem does not matter was much as does the willingness to solve it.Ralph Marston, in Talent Economics: The Fine Line Between Winning and Losing the Global War ..., p.3

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
Balancing a nominal budget will solve nothing, and attempting to achieve such a spurious balance will produce much mischief.William Spencer Vickrey, in Full Employment and Price Stability p.4
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., in "Paul's Letter to American Christians", a sermon delivered at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, Montgomery, Alabama (4 November 1956)
