I find that a great part of the information I have, was acquired by looking up something and finding something else on the way.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Any translation which intends to perform a transmitting function cannot transmit anything but information -- hence, something inessential. This is the hallmark of bad translations.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The greatest felony in the news business today is to be behind, or to miss a big story. So speed and quantity substitute for thoroughness and quality, for accuracy and context. The pressure to compete, the fear somebody else will make the splash first, creates a frenzied environment in which a blizzard of information is presented and serious questions may not be raised.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]
English literature is a kind of training in social ethics. English trains you to handle a body of information in a way that is conducive to action.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Iconic clothing has been secularized. A guardsman in a dress uniform is ostensibly an icon of aggression; his coat is red as the blood he hopes to shed. Seen on a coat-hanger, with no man inside it, the uniform loses all its blustering significance and, to the innocent eye seduced by decorative color and tactile braid, it is as abstract in symbolic information as a parasol to an Eskimo. It becomes simply magnificent.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If you would inform, a positive and dogmatic manner in advancing your sentiments may provoke contradiction and prevent a candid attention. If you wish information and improvement from the knowledge of others, and yet at the same time express yourself as firmly fixed in your present opinions, modest, sensible men, who do not love disputation, will probably leave you undisturbed in the possession of your error.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Psychoanalysts seem to be long on information and short on application.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have made decisions that turned out to be wrong, and went back and did it another way, and still took less time than many who procrastinated over the original decision. Your brain is capable of handling 140, 000 million bits of information in one second, and if you take hours or days or weeks to reach a vital decision, you are short-circuiting your most valuable property.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
With so much information now online, it is exceptionally easy to simply dive in and drown.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Information networks straddle the world. Nothing remains concealed. But the sheer volume of information dissolves the information. We are unable to take it all in.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The seeing of objects involves many sources of information beyond those meeting the eye when we look at an object. It generally involves knowledge of the object derived from previous experience, and this experience is not limited to vision but may include the other senses: touch, taste, smell, hearing, and perhaps also temperature or pain.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Not having the information you need when you need it leaves you wanting. Not knowing where to look for that information leaves you powerless. In a society where information is king, none of us can afford that.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Knowledge is of two kinds: We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information about it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Always think of your customers as suppliers first. Work closely with them, so they can supply you with the information you need to supply them with the right products and services.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have all my life been on my guard against the information conveyed by the sense of hearing -- it being one of my earliest observations, the universal inclination of humankind is to be led by the ears, and I am sometimes apt to imagine that they are given to men as they are to pitchers, purposely that they may be carried about by them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Even though these technological advances originally sought to control information and bring order to the office, in many instances they have done just the opposite. The electronic office promised to reduce paper work and lessen work loads, but it has, in fact, generated more information that must sill be printed and -even more challenging-be assimilated. Since computers entered office systems, paper utilization has increased six-fold.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Intuition becomes increasingly valuable in the new information society precisely because there is so much data.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is now a generally accepted and scientifically well supported view that subliminal perception does occur-that people are capable of receiving and responding to information presented to them at levels below the threshold of conscious recognition.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We have unprecedented conditions to deal with and novel adjustments to make -- there can be no doubt of that. We also have a great stock of scientific knowledge unknown to our grandfathers with which to operate. So novel are the conditions, so copious the knowledge, that we must undertake the arduous task of reconsidering a great part of the opinions about man and his relations to his fellow men which have been handed down to us by previous generations who lived in far other conditions and possessed far less information about the world and themselves. We have, however, first to create an unprecedented attitude of mind to cope with unprecedented conditions, and to utilize unprecedented knowledge.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We are drowning in information and starving for knowledge.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The bigger the information media, the less courage and freedom they allow. Bigness means weakness.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention of its recipients. Hence, a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention and a need to allocate that attention efficiently among the overabundance of information sources that might consume it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All my life, as down an abyss without a bottom. I have been pouring van loads of information into that vacancy of oblivion I call my mind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Everybody gets so much common information all day long that they lose their common sense.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Wisdom is perishable. Unlike information or knowledge, it cannot be stored in a computer or recorded in a book. It expires with each passing generation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The Internet's been so great, and it's so nice to have fans do nice, elaborate websites, but I think the downside is some of the things... for real fans to go on and see that 90 percent of the information isn't true or to see pictures that aren't really me, or for them to be able to sell these things, that's one of the downsides, I think.More [11/06/2005 12:11:00]
Dustin Hoffman was the greatest. He had so much information to give and he mesmerized me. He really feels for actors who are just starting out and remembers his early days like they were yesterday.More [12/15/2005 12:12:00]
Began back in the mid-70s when I started my career as a model and began seeing more similarities than differences among different ethnic groups. Let's face it: women of every race, nationality and background want the same thing - to look radiant and feel beautiful in their own skin. I wrote 'The Beauty of Color' as visual tribute, celebration and insider information for women from diverse backgrounds. When I came to the US, the beauty message was 'America celebrates the girl next door.' Well, not only has the girl next door changed, the whole neighborhood has changed!More [03/23/2006 12:03:00]
Somewhere in your career, your work changes. It becomes less anal, less careful and more spontaneous, more to do with the information that your soul carries.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]

It's a fairy tale about the guys who wrote fairy tales through the eyes of Terry Gilliam, ... This film was actually an excuse for Terry to create an entire world.

“In hindsight, you think, yeah there are things you could have done. But at the time we had multiple sources telling us the information and we had people in positions of authority ... telling us the information was correct. When you have officials telling you something and eyewitnesses telling you something, at some point you have to rely on that information.”More [11/16/2006 12:11:00]
