Salman Rushdie – What kind of idea are you?

Share this quote:
Salman RushdieWhat kind of idea are you? Are you the kind that compromises, does deals, accommodates itself to society, aims to find a niche, to survive; or are you the cussed, bloody-minded, ramrod-backed type of damn-fool notion that would rather break than sway with the breeze? – The kind that will almost certainly, ninety-nine times out of hundred, be smashed to bits; but, the hundredth time, will change the world.

Salman Rushdie   (1947-)

Mahatma Gandhi – Be the change

Share this quote:
Mahatma GandhiWe but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.

Mahatma Gandhi   (1869-1948)

Steve Jobs – The crazy ones, misfits, and rebels

Share this quote:
Steve JobsHere’s to the crazy ones — the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently – they are not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can ‘t do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Steve Jobs   (1955-2011)
