Jiddu Krishnamurti – The mind is noisy

Share this quote:
Jiddu KrishnamurtiYou know, in the case of most of us, the mind is noisy, everlastingly chattering to itself , soliloquizing or chattering about something, or trying to talk to itself, to convince itself of something; it is always moving, noisy. And from that noise, we act. Any action born of noise produces more noise, more confusion.

Jiddu Krishnamurti

Charles Babbage – Right answers from wrong figures

Share this quote:
Charles BabbageOn two occasions I have been asked — “Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?” In one case a member of the Upper, and in the other a member of the Lower, House put this question. I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.

Charles Babbage   (1791-1871)
