  • proposed by Kalki
2006

If at first you don't succeed, maybe losing is your style. Chris Lang October 28th 2008

This is a line from Brideshead Revisited, which has now been added to the page. ~ Kalki 22:12, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

The feelings of desperation and unhappiness are more useful to an artist than the feeling of contentment, because desperation and unhappiness stretch your whole sensibility. ~ Francis Bacon

To ask may be but a moment's shame, not to ask and remain ignorant is a lifelong shame. ~ Jigoro Kano

1 * 3 Kalki 15:52, 18 October 2008 (UTC) This seems to be a general Japanese proverb; I found no published mention of Jigoro Kano as its author. ~ Kalki 19:01, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

  • 0 because it is unsourced to Kano. - InvisibleSun 19:48, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
    • Comment: actually, this quote is attributed heavily to Jigoro Kano and Judo training. I located many books that have the quote, but I'm having trouble locating the exact source crediting Kano as the sole author. I'm pretty sure he did say it though. Zarbon 23:12, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

The man who is at the peak of his success, and the man who have just failed are in exactly the same position. Each must decide what he will do next. ~ Jigoro Kano

A variant of this is now sourced:

Paradoxically, the man who has failed and one who is at the peak of success are in exactly the same position. Each must decide what he will do next, choose the course that will lead him to the future.

  • 3 Kalki 19:01, 27 October 2008 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.
  • 3 for the sourced version. - InvisibleSun 19:48, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 still since its the same initial quote as I suggested only reworded. Zarbon 23:06, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 ~ Ningauble 00:15, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Consider fully, act decisively. ~ Jigoro Kano

  • 2 Zarbon 05:39, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 15:52, 18 October 2008 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4 but I would prefer to extend it to:
Carefully observe oneself and one's situation, carefully observe others, and carefully observe one's environment,
Seize the initiative in whatever you undertake,
Consider fully, act decisively,
Know when to stop,
Keep to the middle.

Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can't lose. ~ Bill Gates

Aesthetic value is often the by-product of the artist striving to do something else. ~ Evelyn Waugh (date of birth)

Neither wisdom nor good will is now dominant. Hope lies in dreams, in imagination and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality. ~ Jonas Salk

  • 2 ~ Ningauble 00:15, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

My attitude was always to keep open, to keep scanning. I think that's how things work in nature. Many people are close-minded, rigid, and that's not my inclination. ~ Jonas Salk

  • 3 Kalki 05:50, 19 October 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.

Some people might look at something and let it go by, because they don't recognize the pattern and the significance. It's the sensitivity to pattern recognition that seems to me to be of great importance. It's a matter of being able to find meaning, whether it's positive or negative, in whatever you encounter. It's like a journey. It's like finding the paths that will allow you to go forward, or that path that has a block that tells you to start over again or do something else. ~ Jonas Salk

  • 3 Kalki 05:50, 19 October 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.

I do what I feel impelled to do, as an artist would. Scientists function in the same way. I see all these as creative activities, as all part of the process of discovery. Perhaps that's one of the characteristics of what I call the evolvers, any subset of the population who keep things moving in a positive, creative, constructive way, revealing the truth and beauty that exists in life and in nature. ~ Jonas Salk

  • 3 Kalki 05:50, 19 October 2009 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.

I see the triumph of good over evil as a manifestation of the error-correcting process of evolution. ~ Jonas Salk

  • 3 Kalki 05:50, 19 October 2009 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.

Apply just the right amount of force — never too much, never too little. All of us know of people who have failed to accomplish what they set out to do because of not properly gauging the amount of effort required. At one extreme, they fall short of the mark; at the other, they do not know when to stop. ~ Jigoro Kano

  • 3 Kalki 05:50, 19 October 2009 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4.

Punctuality is the virtue of the bored. ~ Evelyn Waugh

  • 3 Kalki 06:01, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

I came to the conclusion many years ago that almost all crime is due to the repressed desire for aesthetic expression. ~ Evelyn Waugh

  • 3 Kalki 06:01, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Judo teaches us to look for the best possible course of action, whatever the individual circumstances, and helps us to understand that worry is a waste of energy. ~ Jigoro Kano
