15 quotes from great American philosophers

If you love the United States then you might just appreciate today’s 15 inspirational quotes from some of the great American philosophers.

Your personal philosophy is important.

It’s all about how you choose to view the world and your role in it.

Never underestimate the importance of personal philosophy in terms of how your life will progress.

In our heads, metaphorically there are two wolves fighting each other. One wolf represents all things positive and the other is all things negative. Which wolf wins will depend on which one you choose to feed most.

Feed the positive and you’ll enjoy better life experiences.

I’m not an American but I love American culture and American thinking and positivity. And I’ve learnt a lot from reading books by some of the great American philosophers and you can too.

So let’s start with these inspiring quotes by some American philosophers which I’ve read in the recent past. These are some great quotes and they will help you form your own personal philosophy.

  11. I think that every sexual position is fundamentally comic. ~Judith Butler
  12. For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
  13. When a politician uses the word ‘folks,’ we should brace ourselves for the deceit, or worse, that is coming. ~Noam Chomsky
  14. Education and work are the levers to uplift a people. ~W. E. B. Du Bois

17 thought-provoking quotes about war and why it’s truly mad

Quotes About WarDoes war ever solve anything? That’s a debatable point, to say the least.

There have been so many wars in my lifetime and yet what have they solved, really? It seems to me that war never actually resolves anything at all.

War causes bitterness and hatred between people and these feelings can fester for generations.

For me, war is best summed up by Bertrand Russell’s famous observation, “War doesn’t decide who’s right, only who’s left.

As far as I can see, war creates more problems than it solves. Often it creates a vacuum which is then filled by people with truly evil intent.

Ultimately differences between people require compromise and a political solution. We have to learn to live together and meet others halfway.

Yes, there will be times when we have to be resolute and tough but fighting should be avoided whenever possible and it should always be possible.

If I have learned one thing it is this; if politicians had to go to war and do the fighting, and take their own sons and daughters with them, there would be no wars.

The problem we have today is that none of our politicians now have any first-hand experience of the reality of war. None have experienced the horrors of battle. If they had, they would take a very different approach, of that I am sure.

However let me say this; whether war can be justified or otherwise, we must always respect the warriors.

For the warriors do what they do in good faith and at great personal risk to themselves. They act without question and with the intent of protecting us. They do the bidding of politicians. So if anyone is to blame, it’s always the politicians. Let us never forget.

Here are 17 quotes about war to underline today’s message.

Quotes about war (1-10):

  1. War is a defeat for humanity. ~Pope John Paul II
  2. If we don’t end war, war will end us. ~H. G. Wells
  3. When the rich wage war, it’s the poor who die. ~Jean-Paul Sartre
  4. War doesn’t decide who’s right, only who’s left. ~Bertrand Russell
  5. You can no more win a war than you can win an earthquake. ~Jeannette Rankin
  6. In peace, sons bury their fathers. In war, fathers bury their sons. ~Herodotus
  7. The military doesn’t start wars. Politicians start wars. ~William Westmoreland
  8. The more you sweat in peace, the less you bleed in war. ~Norman Schwarzkopf
  9. Politics is war without bloodshed while war is politics with bloodshed. ~Mao Zedong
  10. Older men declare war. But it is the youth that must fight and die. ~Herbert Hoover

Quotes about war (11-17):

  1. Mankind must put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind. ~John F. Kennedy
  2. Being prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace. ~George Washington
  3. What a cruel thing war is; to fill our hearts with hatred instead of love for our neighbours. ~Robert E. Lee
  4. The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his. ~George S. Patton
  5. I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones. ~Albert Einstein
  6. I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity. ~Dwight D. Eisenhower
  7. I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell. ~William Tecumseh Sherman

15 quotes about communication that’ll make you think

quotes about communicationIn the field of human relations, effective communication is very important. Yet communication or lack of it is so often the cause of so many of our problems. After all, it’s not what we say, it’s what we mean. In this post, there are 15 quotes about communication to help you consider this point.

We may think we’ve said something clearly but did the other person understand the meaning of our words in the way they were intended? Did we use the right words to convey our underlying message?

All too often we fail to get our message across clearly. Then we can find ourselves arguing with someone due to a miscommunication when in fact both parties have no underlying disagreement at all.

If you’re the communicator then it is your responsibility to ensure that the receiver of your communication understands its meaning clearly. It is not the receiver’s job to work out what you really meant. And of course, it’s not only what you say, but it’s also the way that you say it.

I can use exactly the same words with different tones and convey a totally different meaning. For instance, if you walk into a room and I say your name warmly and with a smile then it suggests I’m pleased to see you and you will respond accordingly.

Alternatively, if I scream your name, aggressively, as you enter that same room then you will conclude that I am not happy with you at all and you will become very defensive.

So think carefully before you speak. If you’re in any role where you are a leader of people then good communication skills are vital if you are to execute your duties successfully.

So learn the art of good communication and remember that your tone is as important as your words.

Treat people with respect and they will respond well. Put them at ease when speaking with them and make sure they clearly understand your message as it was intended. Good communication is essential for effective leadership.

Here are those 15 quotes about communication:-

Quotes about communication (1-5):

  1. Talk low, talk slow and don’t say too much. ~John Wayne
  2. If you can’t convince them, confuse them. ~Harry S. Truman
  3. By and large, language is a tool for concealing the truth. ~George Carlin
  4. The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t said. ~Peter Drucker
  5. We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak. ~Epictetus

Quotes about communication (6-10):

  1. Communication – the human connection – is the key to personal and career success. ~Paul J. Meyer
  2. The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place. ~George Bernard Shaw
  3. A man’s character may be learned from the adjectives which he habitually uses in conversation. ~Mark Twain
  4. Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill. ~Buddha
  5. To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others. ~Tony Robbins

Quotes about communication (11-15):

  1. The speed of communications is wondrous to behold. It is also true that speed can multiply the distribution of information that we know to be untrue. ~Edward R. Murrow
  2. The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words. ~Philip K. Dick
  3. If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time – a tremendous whack. ~Winston Churchill
  4. Take advantage of every opportunity to practice your communication skills so that when important occasions arise, you will have the gift, the style, the sharpness, the clarity, and the emotions to affect other people. ~Jim Rohn
  5. Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, hinder, hurt, harm, humiliate, and humble. ~Yehuda Berg

20 classic Elaine Benes quotes that’ll make you smile

Elaine Benes QuotesAnother offering in my series with the theme of memorable sitcom characters, today I thought it would be entertaining to take a look back at some classic Elaine Benes quotes.

Who can forget this brilliant character from the American sitcom Seinfeld, played by the hugely talented Julia Louis-Dreyfus?

Elaine was a woman holding her own in a man’s world. She was smart and funny and she brought a sparkle to the show. However, like all memorable sitcom characters, she was essentially a little flawed too, as you’ll appreciate from the quotes today.

If you love Seinfeld, I’m sure you will be a fan of Elaine Benes.

However, if you’re not old enough to remember Seinfeld and Elaine Benes, in particular, then you’ll find plenty of amusing clips from this sitcom, and featuring the character Elaine Benes, on YouTube.

They’re all brilliant and definitely well worth a little piece of your time.

So check them out but not before you’ve enjoyed these 20 classic Elaine Benes quotes, which I’m confident will raise a smile or two, and will probably resonate with many female readers too, I’m sure.
