i-TFTD #153

i-TFTD #153

#153-1. Conditions are never just right. People who delay action until all factors are favorable do nothing.

-William Feather

#153-2. Only those who have to do simple things perfectly will acquire the skill to do difficult things easily.

-Johann Schiller

#153-3. To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

-Anatole France


Sep 5 is celebrated in India as Teachers Day in honour of one of Indias greatest teachers, former President Dr. S. Radhakrishnan. Happy Teachers' Day to all of you who contribute to others' development.

My Musing: In these days of Lifelong Learning, there ought to be an annual Students' Day, too.

The third quote is a good reminder in this our rational, super-practical age that dreams and beliefs play an important part in great achievements. In this context the old saying, "If I see it, I will believe it" is replaced by Dr. Wayne Dyer's book title, "You'll See It When You Believe It".
