problems

The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Science fiction writers foresee the inevitable, and although problems and catastrophes may be inevitable, solutions are not.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The boss must first distinguish between action information and status information. He must discipline himself not to act on problems his managers can solve, and never to act on problems when he is explicitly reviewing status. I once knew a boss who invariably picked up the phone to give orders before the end of the first paragraph in a status report. That response is guaranteed to squelch full disclosure.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The history of the building of the American nation may justly be described as a laboratory experiment in understanding and in solving the problems that will confront the world tomorrow.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The significant problems we face today cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Total physical and mental inertia are highly agreeable, much more so than we allow ourselves to imagine. A beach not only permits such inertia but enforces it, thus neatly eliminating all problems of guilt. It is now the only place in our overly active world that does.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A women under stress is not immediately concerned with finding solutions to her problems but rather seeks relief by expressing herself and being understood.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We have no problems, only situations. Not all problems have solutions, but all situations have outcomes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All that remains to the mother in modern consumer society is the role of scapegoat; psychoanalysis uses huge amounts of money and time to persuade analysis and to foist their problems on to the absent mother, who has no opportunity to utter a word in her own defense. Hostility to the mother in our societies is an index of mental health.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It seems safe to say that significant discovery, really creative thinking, does not occur with regard to problems about which the thinker is lukewarm.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
War has been the most convenient pseudo-solution for the problems of twentieth-century capitalism. It provides the incentives to modernization and technological revolution which the market and the pursuit of profit do only fitfully and by accident, it makes the unthinkable (such as votes for women and the abolition of unemployment) not merely thinkable but practicable. What is equally important, it can re-create communities of men and give a temporary sense to their lives by uniting them against foreigners and outsiders. This is an achievement beyond the power of the private enterprise economy when left to itself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Fear of the pain blinds us to the goal of healing. Only by seeing our problems clearly and experiencing them can we do something about them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No use to shout at them to pay attention. If the situations, the materials, the problems before the child do not interest him, his attention will slip off to what does interest him, and no amount of exhortation of threats will bring it back.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There are only two problems in my life. The political ones are insoluble and the economic ones are incomprehensible.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The three major administrative problems on a campus are sex for the students, athletics for the alumni, and parking for the faculty.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If we could sniff or swallow something that would, for five or six hours each day, abolish our solitude as individuals, atone us with our fellows in a glowing exaltation of affection and make life in all its aspects seem not only worth living, but divinely beautiful and significant, and if this heavenly, world-transfiguring drug were of such a kind that we could wake up next morning with a clear head and an undamaged constitution -- then, it seems to me, all our problems (and not merely the one small problem of discovering a novel pleasure) would be wholly solved and earth would become paradise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I know of no department of natural science more likely to reward a man who goes into it thoroughly than anthropology.

Crowds are somewhat like the sphinx of ancient fable: It is necessary to arrive at a solution of the problems offered by their psychology or to resign ourselves to being devoured by them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The problems of society will also be the problems of the predominant language of that society. It is the carrier of its perceptions, its attitudes, and its goals, for through it, the speakers absorb entrenched attitudes.

As a result of trying to solve the big problems we face in life, many of us end up sacrificing individual relationships by doing things that we may consider as being small or insignificant at the time. This reminds us of the George and Gracie routine where George asks Gracie, How do you cook a pot roast? She replied, I put both a big pot roast and a small pot roast in the oven. When the small one is burnt, the big one is done just right!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Lieutenant Elijah Karl Heisenberg: It's a worn subject, there will always be prejudice. Some of these clones have been genetically engineered so well that the majority of today's society wouldn't be able to keep up with them anyway. We are breaking human rights by making man-kind better? You can't even tell who is a clone and who isn't these days. The only problems which arise from cloning are social ones and mostly having to do with family law, but these are issues that can be resolved. it's not as if we are conducting dangerous experiments that harm human dignity.More [10/19/2005 12:10:00]
Man on the Train: Hey, are you a dreamer?
Wiley: Yeah.
Man on the Train: I haven't seen too many around lately. Things have been tough lately for dreamers. They say dreaming is dead, no one does it anymore. It's not dead it's just that it's been forgotten, removed from our language. Nobody teaches it so nobody knows it exists. The dreamer is banished to obscurity. Well, I'm trying to change all that, and I hope you are too. By dreaming, every day. Dreaming with our hands and dreaming with our minds. Our planet is facing the greatest problems it's ever faced, ever. So whatever you do, don't be bored, this is absolutely the most exciting time we could have possibly hoped to be alive. And things are just startingMore [10/23/2005 12:10:00]

[pause]
