A Guide For Creative Thinking

Thu Sep 17, 2009 3:12 am by BHSoft

A Guide For Creative Thinking by Brian Tracy
Einstein once said, “Every child is born a genius.” But the reason why most people do not function at genius levels is because they are not aware of how creative and smart they really are.I call it the “Schwarzenegger effect.” No one would look at a person such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and think how lucky he is to have been born with such …

We're going to grab a bite to eat. = We're gonna grab a bite to eat.
I'm going to the office tonight. = I'm going to the office tonight.

2. Want to and want a are both pronounced WANNA and wants to is pronounced WANSTA. Do you want to can also be reduced …

    Quotes by Arthur Miller

    Post by Lily on Thu Jun 25, 2009 11:06 am



    1. A child's spirit is like a child, you can never catch it by running after it; you must stand still, and, for love, it will soon itself come back.
    2. A good newspaper, I suppose, is a nation talking to itself.
    3. A playwright lives in an occupied country. And if you can't live that way you don't stay.
    4. A suicide kills two people, Maggie, that's what it's for!
    5. All we are is a lot of talking nitrogen.
    6. Betrayal is the only truth that sticks.
    7. Can anyone remember love? It's like trying to summ on up the smell of roses in a cellar. You might see a rose, but never the perfume.
    8. Certainly the most diverse, if minor, pastime of literary life is the game of Find the Author.
    9. Don't be seduced into thinking that that which does not make a profit is without value.
    10. Everybody likes a kidder, but nobody lends him money.
    11. He wants to live on through something-and in his case, his masterpiece is his son. all of us want that, and it gets more poignant as we get more anonymous in this world.
    12. He's not the finest character that ever lived. But he's a human being, and a terrible thing is happening to him. So attention must be paid.
    13. I cannot sleep for dreaming; I cannot dream but I wake and walk about the house as though I'd find you coming through some door.
    14. I have made more friends for American culture than the State Department. Certainly I have made fewer enemies, but that isn't very difficult.
    15. I know that my works are a credit to this nation and I dare say they will endure longer than the McCarran Act.
    16. I love her too, but our neuroses just don't match.
    17. I think it's a mistake to ever look for hope outside of one's self.
    18. I think now that the great thing is not so much the formulation of an answer for myself, for the theater, or the play-but rather the most accurate possible statement of the problem.
    19. I'm the end of the line; absurd and appalling as it may seem, serious New York theater has died in my lifetime.
    20. If I have any justification for having lived it's simply, I'm nothing but faults, failures and so on, but I have tried to make a good pair of shoes. There's some value in that.

    Quote of the Day in French!

    Post by Lily on Sun Jun 14, 2009 3:34 pm



    • Le secret de la réussite c'est de savoir se relever a chaque fois qu'on tombe.


    • C'est dans le calme et la bonne humeur que se greffent les ailes qui nous permettent de nous envoler et de survoler nos difficultés.


    • Il faut savoir ce que l'on veut, quand on le sait , il faut avoir le courage de le dire; quand on le dit , il faut avoir le courage de le faire .

    Quotes by Barack Obama

    Post by Lily on Sat Jun 13, 2009 11:27 am

    A good compromise, a good piece of legislation, is like a good sentence; or a good piece of music. Everybody can recognize it. They say, 'Huh. It works. It makes sense.'
    Barack Obama
    Al Qaeda is still a threat. We cannot pretend somehow that because Barack Hussein Obama got elected as president,suddenly everything is going to be OK.
    Barack Obama
    America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.
    Barack Obama
    Americans... still believe in an America where anything's possible - they just don't think their leaders do.
    Barack Obama
    As a nuclear power - as the only nuclear power to have used a nuclear weapon - the United States has a moral responsibility to act.
    Barack Obama
    Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
    Barack Obama
    Community colleges play an important role in helping people transition between careers by providing the retooling they need to take on a new career.
    Barack Obama
    Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.
    Barack Obama
    I can make a firm pledge, under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.
    Barack Obama
    I cannot swallow whole the view of Lincoln as the Great Emancipator.
    Barack Obama
    I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.
    Barack Obama
    I don't care whether you're driving a hybrid or an SUV. If you're headed for a cliff, you have to change direction. That's what the American people called for in November, and that's what we intend to deliver.
    Barack Obama
    I don't oppose all wars. What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war.
    Barack Obama
    I don't take a dime of their [lobbyist] money, and when I am president, they won't find a job in my White House.
    Barack Obama
    I found this national debt, doubled, wrapped in a big bow waiting for me as I stepped into the Oval Office.
    Barack Obama
    I know my country has not perfected itself. At times, we've struggled to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people. We've made our share of mistakes, and there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions.
    Barack Obama
    I think it is important for Europe to understand that even though I am president and George Bush is not president, Al Qaeda is still a threat.
    Barack Obama
    I think when you spread the wealth around it's good for everybody.
    Barack Obama
    I will cut taxes - cut taxes - for 95 percent of all working families, because, in an economy like this, the last thing we should do is raise taxes on the middle class.
    Barack Obama

    Quotes by Victor Hugo

    Post by Lily on Sun May 17, 2009 12:29 am


    Quotes by Victor Hugo


    • "Forty is the old age of youth, fifty is the youth of old age."
    • "When grace is joined with wrinkles, it is adorable. There is an unspeakable dawn in happy old age."
    • "Adversity makes men, and prosperity makes monsters."
    • "A creditor is worse than a slave-owner; for the master owns only your person, but a creditor owns your dignity, and can command it."
    • "We are the children of our own deeds."
    • "Despots play their part in the works of thinkers. Fettered words are terrible words. The writer doubles and trebles the power of his writing when a ruler imposes silence on the people. Something emerges from that enforced silence, a mysterious fullness which filters through and becomes steely in the thought. Repression in history leads to conciseness in the historian, and the rocklike hardness of much celebrated prose is due to the tempering of the tyrant."

    Quotes by John Steinbeck

    Post by Lily on Sat May 16, 2009 3:32 pm



    • A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike.And all plans, safeguards,policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.
    • A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.
    • A sad soul can kill quicker than a germ.
    • Four hoarse blasts of a ship's whistle still raise the hair on my neck and set my feet to tapping.
    • Give a critic an inch, he'll write a play.
    • I am impelled, not to squeak like a grateful and apologetic mouse, but to roar like a lion out of pride in my profession.
    • I hate cameras. They are so much more sure than I am about everything.
    • I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.
    • I have never smuggled anything in my life. Why, then, do I feel an uneasy sense of guilt on approaching a customs barrier?
    • I have owed you this letter for a very long time-but my fingers have avoided the pencil as though it were an old and poisoned tool.
    • I hold that a writer who does not passionately believe in the perfectibility of man has no dedication nor any membership in literature.
    • I've lived in good climate, and it bores the hell out of me. I like weather rather than climate.
    • I've seen a look in dogs' eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.
    • Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.
    • If you're in trouble, or hurt or need - go to the poor people. They're the only ones that'll help - the only ones.
    • In the souls of the people the grapes of wrath are filling and growing heavy, growing heavy for the vintage.
    • In utter loneliness a writer tries to explain the inexplicable.
    • It has always been my private conviction that any man who puts his intelligence up against a fish and loses had it coming.
    • It is a common experience that a problem difficult at night is resolved in the morning after the committee of sleep has worked on it.
    • It is true that we are weak and sick and ugly and quarrelsome but if that is all we ever were, we would millenniums ago have disappeared from the face of the earth.

    Quotes by Noam Chomsky

    Post by Lily on Sat Apr 25, 2009 6:53 pm

    Quotes:

    "I have often thought that if a rational Fascist dictatorship were to exist, then it would choose the American system."

    "If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all."

    "The consistent anarchist should be a socialist,but a socialist of a particular sort. He will not only oppose alienated and specialized labor and look forward to the appropriation of capital by the whole body of workers, but he will also insist that this appropriation be direct, not exercised by some elite force acting in the name of the proletariat. Some sort of council communism is the natural form of revolutionary socialism in an industrial society. It reflects the intuitive understanding that democracy is largely a sham when the industrial system is controlled by any form of autocratic elite, whether of owners, managers, and technocrats, a vanguard party,or a State bureaucracy."

    "Unlimited economic growth has the marvelous quality of stilling discontent while maintaining privilege, a fact that has not gone unnoticed among liberal economists."

    "The principle that human nature, in its psychological aspects, is nothing more than a product of history and given social relations removes all barriers to coercion andmanipulation by the powerful."

    "The intellectual tradition is one of servility to power, and if I didn't betray it I'd be ashamed of myself."

    Quotes:
    "There are no second acts in American lives."
    "No such thing as a man willing to be honest --that would be like a blind man willing to see."
    "The intimate revelations of young men, or at least the terms in which they express them, are usually plagiaristic and marred by obvious suppressions."
    "Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me. They possess and enjoy early, and it does something to them, makes them soft where we are hard, and cynical where we are trustful, in a way that, unless you were born rich, it is very difficult to understand. They think, deep in their hearts, that they are better than we are because we had to discover the compensations and refuges of life for ourselves. Even when they enter deep into our world or sink below us, they still think that they are better than we are.They are different."

    Quotes By Goerge Orwell

    Post by Lily on Thu Apr 09, 2009 12:59 am

    Quotes:
    "For the ordinary man is passive. Within a narrow circle (home life, and perhaps the trade unions or local politics) he feels himself master of his fate, but against major events he is as helpless as against the elements. So far from endeavoring to influence the future, he simply lies down and lets things happen to him."
    "To walk through the ruined cities of Germany is to feel an actual doubt about the continuity of civilization."
    "One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes a revolution in order to establish a dictatorship."
    "No advance in wealth, no softening of manners, no reform or revolution has ever brought human equality a millimeter nearer."
    "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others."
    "We may find in the long run that tinned food is a deadlier weapon than the machine-gun."

    Quotes By William Faulkner

    Post by Lily on Fri Mar 20, 2009 1:04 pm

    "People between twenty and forty are not sympathetic. The child has the capacity to do but it can't know. It only knows when it is no longer able to do --after forty. Between twenty and forty the will of the child to do gets stronger, more dangerous, but it has not begun to learn to know yet. Since his capacity to do is forced into channels of evil through environment and pressures, man is strong before he is moral. The world's anguish is caused by people between twenty and forty."

    "The end of wisdom is to dream high enough to lose the dream in the seeking of it."

    "Facts and truth really don't have much to do with each other."

    "All of us failed to match our dreams of perfection. So I rate us on the basis of our splendid failure to do the impossible."

    "When my horse is running good, I don't stop to give him sugar."

    "If we Americans are to survive it will have to be because we choose and elect and defend to be first of all Americans;to present to the world one homogeneous and unbroken front, whether of white Americans or black ones or purple or blue or green. If we in America have reached that point in our desperate culture when we must murder children, no matter for what reason or what color, we don't deserve to survive, and probably won t."

    "I am the family face; flesh perishes, I live on, projecting trait and trace through time to times anon, and leaping from place to place over oblivion."
    "The main object of religion is not to get a man into heaven, but to get heaven into him."
    "It is difficult for a woman to define her feelings in language which is chiefly made by men to express theirs."
    "A lover without indiscretion is no lover at all. Circumspection and devotion are a contradiction in terms."

    2. No one will manufacture a lock without a key, similarly, god won't give problems without solutions.

    4. Every successful person has a painful story.Every painful story has a successful ending.
    5. Accept the pain and get ready for success.
    6. Easy to judge the others' mistakes, difficult is to recognize our own mistakes.
    7. It is easier tp protect your feet with slippers than to cover the earth with carpet.
    8. No one can go back and change a bad beginning, but anyone can start now and create a successful ending.
    9. If a problem can be solved, no need to worry about it.
    10. If a problem cannot be solved, what's the use of worring?
    11. If you miss an oportunity don't fill your eyes with tears, it will hide another better opportunity in front of you
    12. Changing the face can change nothing , but facing the change can change everything".
    13. Don't complain about others, change yourself if you want peace.
    14. Mistakes are painful when they happen, but years later collection of mistakes is called experience, which leads to success.
    15. Be bold when you lose, and be calm when you win .
    16. Heated gold becomes ornament, beaten copper becomes wires, depleted stone becomes statue, so the more pain you get in life you become more valuable.
