„Whoever shows both charm and pleasure in explaining to people things that they already know soon gets a reputation as an intelligent individual.“

Wer es versteht, den Leuten mit Anmut und Behagen Dinge auseinander zu setzen, die sie ohnehin wissen, der verschafft sich am geschwindesten den Ruf eines gescheiten Menschen.

„Human experience shows that people, not organizations or management systems, get things done.“

—  Hyman George Rickover United States admiral 1900 - 1986

Contesto: What it takes to do a job will not be learned from management courses. It is principally a matter of experience, the proper attitude, and common sense — none of which can be taught in a classroom... Human experience shows that people, not organizations or management systems, get things done.

„A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.“

—  Dwight D. Eisenhower American general and politician, 34th president of the United States (in office from 1953 to 1961) 1890 - 1969

1950s, First Inaugural Address (1953)
Contesto: We must be ready to dare all for our country. For history does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must acquire proficiency in defense and display stamina in purpose. We must be willing, individually and as a Nation, to accept whatever sacrifices may be required of us. A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both. These basic precepts are not lofty abstractions, far removed from matters of daily living. They are laws of spiritual strength that generate and define our material strength. Patriotism means equipped forces and a prepared citizenry. Moral stamina means more energy and more productivity, on the farm and in the factory. Love of liberty means the guarding of every resource that makes freedom possible--from the sanctity of our families and the wealth of our soil to the genius of our scientists.
