“The inferior man’s reasons for hating knowledge are not hard to discern.  He hates it because it is complex – because it puts an unbearable burden on his meager capacity for taking in ideas. Thus his search is always for short cuts. All superstitions are short cuts. Their aim is to make the unintelligible simple, and even obvious.” -H.L. Menkel

“Ideas are the currency of life. Not money—because money can run out.” -James Altucher

“Do you know the number one reason people don’t follow their dreams?

  • It’s not money…
  • It’s not time…
  • It’s not lack of ideas…

It’s lack of confidence.”

-Robert Kiyosaki

“People always say Thomas Edison failed at making the light bulb a thousand times in a row. He didn’t fail. He was experimenting with different filaments of wire. He was trying new ideas. And he learned every time. Again, nothing is really ‘failure’. Unless you label it that way. And give up.

I treat everything as an experiment. It helps me start something new. And it helps me prevent getting stuck in the past.

FAILURE = EXPERIMENTATION”

-James Altucher

“Ideas?  We’ve had ’em since Eve deceived Adam, but take it from me execution’s the key.” -Felix Dennis

“It’s EZ credit that is the linchpin in today’s fake-money system.

The Deep State’s stocks, bonds, and real estate values… not to mention its careers, incomes, and reputations… depend on it.

And it is made possible by the China trade… by Chinese workers who put in long hours in miserable conditions in order to stock the shelves of Walmart with cheap goods… by Chinese manufacturers who undersell their competitors to keep consumer price inflation in the U.S. at low levels… and by Bank of China, which holds some $1.25 trillion worth of U.S. bonds… thus propping up the whole wobbly capital structure….

In politics and economics, BS is all there is. The calculations are almost always fake; the statistics are quackery; the theories are devilish nonsense. And bad ideas never entirely disappear, they just re-emerge after a few years… often dressed in new duds.”

-Bill Bonner

“The masses do not conceive any ideas, sound or unsound. They only choose between the ideologies developed by the intellectual leaders of mankind. But their choice is final and determines the course of events… it determines the whole process of human history.” -Ludwig Von Mises
