They Said WHAT…

“Great discoveries and improvements invariably involved the cooperation of many minds. I may be given credit for having blazed the trail, but when I look at the subsequent developments I feel the credit is due to others rather than to myself.” – Alexander Graham Bell

“If people are failing, they look inept. If people are succeeding, they look strong and good and competent. That’s the “halo effect.” Your first impression of a thing sets up your subsequent beliefs. If the company looks inept to you, you may assume everything else they do is inept.” – Daniel Kahneman

“In 70s America, protest used to be very effective, but in subsequent decades municipalities have sneakily created a web of “overpermiticisation” – requirements that were designed to stifle freedom of assembly and the right to petition government for redress of grievances, both of which are part of our first amendment.” – Naomi Wolf

“Science is a self-correcting discipline that can, in subsequent generations, show that previous idea’s were not correct.” – Brian Greene

  1. Concerning the “halo” effect, these people are amazed that the “my pillow” guy can head a business. I’ve seen Mike Lindel on a talk show and elsewhere, and I agree with these people that he really believes things other righties only pretend to believe.

    1. I never would have thought Marjorie would try to correct him instead of running with that date… maybe there is some sanity left. I agree with the commentator, how does Mike run a business successfully???

      1. Yeah. Sure is seriously perplexing, as well as thought-provoking, that he has reached millionaire status more than once. And I guess we’ll see what comes next with Marjorie.

        You’ve given some excellent examples of using the word “subsequent” above; all four quotations are quite observant and contemplative. It’s a great word, isn’t it.
