Foresight quotes by Gary Hamel
#5. **New business concepts are always, always the product of lucky foresight.**
That's right - the essential insight doesn't come out of any dirigiste planning process; it comes form some cocktail of happenstance, desire, curiosity, ambition and need. But at the end of the day, there has to be a degree of foresight
a sense of where new riches lie. So radical innovation is always one part fortuity and one part clearheaded vision.
[first-line bold by author]
[2002] p.23 #Quote by Gary Hamel
Foresight quotes by Simon Pegg
#6. Ultimately, we are all products of the experiences we have and the decisions we make as children, and it remains a peculiar detail of human condition that something as precious as the future is entrusted to us when we possess so little foresight. Perhaps that's what makes hindsight so intriguing. When you're young the future is a blank canvas, but looking back you are always able to see the big picture. #Quote by Simon Pegg
Foresight quotes by Rachael Bermingham
#7. Through adversity, not only are we given an opportunity to discover our inner strength, we are also given the gift of foresight so we can shine a light for others who go through the experience after us. #Quote by Rachael Bermingham
Foresight quotes by Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha
#8. To fulfill your vision, you must have hindsight, insight and foresight. #Quote by Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha
Foresight quotes by Nikki Sixx
#9. The funny thing is that when you have any form of presentation to your band, meaning you have the foresight to see outside of your creativity, you have a bigger vision. #Quote by Nikki Sixx
Foresight quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#10. If you cannot or will not imagine the results of your actions, there's no way you can act morally or responsibly. Little kids can't do it; babies are morally monsters - completely greedy. Their imagination has to be trained into foresight and empathy. [It's the writer's] pleasant duty is to ply the reader's imagination with the best and purest nourishment that it can absorb. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Foresight quotes by Henry Taylor
#11. Fear, indeed, is the mother of foresight ... #Quote by Henry Taylor
Foresight quotes by Brent Hayward
#12. Idealism and naiveté were youthful cousins. Foresight and the considerations of age and experience often brought inaction, compromise, second-guessing; the ability to foresee the extent of actions--to understand implications of cause and effect--could effectively thwart spontaneous, if impractical, decisions. #Quote by Brent Hayward
Foresight quotes by George MacDonald
#13. Work done is of more consequence for the future than the foresight of an angel. #Quote by George MacDonald
Foresight quotes by Jonathan Auxier
#14. Now, there is a wonderful thing in this world called "foresight". It is a gift treasured above all others because it allows one to know what the future holds. Most people with foresight end up wielding immense power in life, often becoming great rulers or librarians. #Quote by Jonathan Auxier
Foresight quotes by U Thant
#15. As we watch the sun go down, evening after evening, through the smog across the poisoned waters of our native earth, we must ask ourselves seriously whether we really wish some future universal historian on another planet to say about us: "With all their genius and with all their skill, they ran out of foresight and air and food and water and ideas," or, They went on playing politics until their world collapsed around them. #Quote by U Thant
Foresight quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#16. From want of foresight men make changes which relishing well at first do not betray their hidden venom, as I have already observed respecting hectic fever. Nevertheless, the ruler is not truly wise who cannot discern evils before they develop themselves, and this is a faculty given to few. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Foresight quotes by M.J. Duff
#17. The Zankli Sacred Prayer: Oh God, I bring before you your children you have gifted with the light. Bring unto them what is yours to give, your to provide, and yours to understand. Bless them with the joy of goodness, and deliver unto them longevity, wisdom and foresight. #Quote by M.J. Duff
Foresight quotes by Greg Egan
#18. The campaign was also among the most heated in recent memory, or short -term anticipation. The soon-to-be Opposition Leader never tired of listing the promises the new Prime Minister would break; she in turn countered with statistics of the mess he'd create as Treasurer, in the mid-eighties. (The causes of that impending recession were still being debated by economists; most claimed it was an "essential precursor" of the prosperity of the nineties , and that The Market, in its infinite, time -spanning wisdom, would choose / had chosen the best of all possible futures. Personally, I suspect it simply proved that even foresight was no cure for incompetence. #Quote by Greg Egan
Foresight quotes by Honore De Balzac
#19. Where some one else's welfare is concerned, a young girl becomes as ingenious as a thief. Guileless where she herself is in question, and full of foresight for me,
she is like a heavenly angel forgiving the strange incomprehensible sins of earth. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Foresight quotes by Izaak Walton
#20. For love is a flattering mischief, that hath denied aged and wise men a foresight of those evils that too often prove to be the children of that blind father; a passion, that carries us to commit errors with as much ease as whirlwinds move feathers, and begets in us an unwearied industry to the attainment of what we desire. #Quote by Izaak Walton
Foresight quotes by L. Ron Hubbard
#21. When it comes to the Yellow Races overruning the world, you may laugh ... [The Chinese] have neither the foresight or endurance to overrun any white country in any way except by intermarriage. One American marine could stand off a great many yellowmen without much effort. #Quote by L. Ron Hubbard
Foresight quotes by Voltaire
#22. there is no such thing as chance. All is either a trial, or a punishment, or a reward, or a foresight. Remember the fisherman, who thought himself the most wretched of mankind. Oromazes sent thee to change his fate. Cease then, frail mortal, to dispute against what thou oughtest to adore." "But, #Quote by Voltaire
Foresight quotes by Ed Koch
#23. In action be primitive; in foresight, a strategist. #Quote by Ed Koch
Foresight quotes by Juliana Hatfield
#24. I still have a lot of those depressive thoughts, but now I have the foresight to tell myself, 'Don't think like that,' and things seem better. #Quote by Juliana Hatfield
Foresight quotes by Jospeh Conrad
#25. Their talk, however, was the talk of sordid buccaneers: it was reckless without hardihood, greedy without audacity, and cruel without courage; there was not an atom of foresight or of serious intention in the whole batch of them, and they did not seem aware these things are wanted for the work of the world. To tear treasure out of the bowels of the land was their desire, with no more moral purpose at the back of it than there is in burglars breaking into a safe. Who paid the expenses of the noble enterprise I don't know... #Quote by Jospeh Conrad
Foresight quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#26. The trick now is to turn insight into foresight. The trick is to know this about your tomorrow, today ... Remember, your future is not coming to you; it's coming through you ... change your idea about the changes to come, even as you change your idea about the changes that have passed. Then you can change your experience of both. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Foresight quotes by John Maynard Keynes
#27. Thus, after all, the actual rates of aggregate saving and spending do not depend on Precaution, Foresight, Calculation, Improvement, Independence, Enterprise, Pride or Avarice. Virtue and vice play no part. It all depends on how far the rate of interest is favourable to investment, after taking account of the marginal efficiency of capital. No, this is an overstatement. If the rate of interest were so governed as to maintain continuous full employment, virtue would resume her sway;
the rate of capital accumulation would depend on the weakness of the propensity to consume. Thus, once again, the tribute that classical economists pay to her is due to their concealed assumption that the rate of interest always is so governed. #Quote by John Maynard Keynes
Foresight quotes by Pawan Mishra
#28. All the progress in science can't be used to build a smell receptor as capable as the one that a true leader possesses - to smell trouble or just something fishy. #Quote by Pawan Mishra
Foresight quotes by Daniel Wagner
#29. Some risks that are thought to be unknown, are not unknown. With some foresight and critical thought, some risks that at first glance may seem unforeseen, can in fact be foreseen. Armed with the right set of tools, procedures, knowledge and insight, light can be shed on variables that lead to risk, allowing us to manage them. #Quote by Daniel Wagner
Foresight quotes by Fux, Johann Joseph
#30. If it is in any case most difficult to choose a life work - since upon the choice, whether it be right or wrong, will depend the good or bad fortune of the rest of one's life - how much care and foresight must he who would enter upon this art employ before he dares to decide. For musicians and poets are born such. You must try to remember whether even in childhood you felt a strong natural inclination to this art and whether you were deeply moved by the beauty of concords #Quote by Fux, Johann Joseph
Foresight quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#31. In respect to foresight and firmness, the people are more prudent, more stable, and have better judgement than princes. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Foresight quotes by Seneca The Younger
#32. It is only the surprise and newness of the thing which makes that misfortune terrible which by premeditation might be made easy to us. For that which some people make light by sufferance, others do by foresight. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Foresight quotes by Jeff Wilser
#33. Nope. Not even close. After writing this book, I'm convinced that Alexander Hamilton is one of the main reasons - maybe the reason - that we are the United States, not just some united states. He's the reason that we do more in America than just plant cabbage and herd sheep. With astonishing foresight that eclipsed every other Founding Father's - Washington, Adams, Jefferson, all of them - Hamilton envisioned the future of the United States. Then he made it happen. #Quote by Jeff Wilser
Foresight quotes by Michelle Franklin
#34. Women always think in the catastrophic, and when there is a calamity to rectify that might require a unmarried granddaughter, there older women will always act. Their powers of foresight and vigilance might make any disheveled or nubile young haggage ready for the altar in five minutes. #Quote by Michelle Franklin
Foresight quotes by Dr. Tony Beizaee
#35. Birth is the celebration of life, overflowing with the waters of Love and foresight from the eternal fountain of all delight wisdom of heart. #Quote by Dr. Tony Beizaee
Foresight quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#36. Daily her tactics grew more sly and underhanded. Last night the audacious wench had picked the lock to his
chamber! Because he'd had the foresight to barricade the door with a heavy armoire, she'd then gone to his door in
the corridor and picked that lock. He'd been forced to escape out the window. Halfway down he'd slipped, crashed the last fifteen feet to the ground, and landed in a prickly bush. Since he'd not had time to don his trews, his
manly parts had taken the brunt of his abrupt entry into the bush, putting him in a foul mood indeed.
The wench sought to unman him before his long-anticipated wedding night. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Foresight quotes by John Stuart Mill
#37. it depends whether the accommodation of social institutions to the altered state of human society, shall be the work of wise foresight, or of a conflict of opposite prejudices. The future of mankind will be gravely imperilled, if great questions are left to be fought over between ignorant change and ignorant opposition to change. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Foresight quotes by Clive James
#38. The inevitable effect of a biographer's hindsight is to belittle the subject's foresight. #Quote by Clive James
Foresight quotes by Stephen Crane
#39. A serious prophet upon predicting a flood should be the first man to climb a tree. This would demonstrate that he was indeed a seer. #Quote by Stephen Crane
Foresight quotes by Emilia Pardo Bazan
#40. God punishes sins, but the world I see only punishes lack of foresight and blunders. #Quote by Emilia Pardo Bazan
Foresight quotes by Karl Schroeder
#41. Foresight is not about predicting the future, it's about minimizing surprise. #Quote by Karl Schroeder
Foresight quotes by Abbe Galiani
#42. Foresight is the cause of Europe's present wars. If one would take pains to forsee nothing, the whole world would be tranquil, and I do not believe that one would be worse off for not waging war. #Quote by Abbe Galiani
Foresight quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#43. The fate of warnings in political affairs is to be futile when the recipient wishes otherwise. #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Foresight quotes by Emily Bronte
#44. Happily, the architect had foresight to build it strong: the narrow windows are deeply set in the wall, and the corners defended with large jutting stones. Before #Quote by Emily Bronte
Foresight quotes by Robert B. Parker
#45. Well, you give me too much credit for foresight and planning. I haven't got a clue what the hell I'm doing. #Quote by Robert B. Parker
Foresight quotes by Marissa Meyer
#46. So whoever planted that tree, they must have known that they were going to have to wait years-decades-before they could sit under it and enjoy its shade. Maybe they never got to. Maybe they planted it, hoping that their kids or their grandkids, or even complete strangers, generations away, would be able to sit under the boughs of that tree and that maybe someone would spare a moment of gratitude for the person who had the foresight to plant a little sapling in the first place. #Quote by Marissa Meyer
Foresight quotes by Henry R. Luce
#47. Business, more than any other occupation, is a continual dealing with the future; it is a continual calculation, an instinctive exercise in foresight. #Quote by Henry R. Luce
Foresight quotes by Ikechukwu Izuakor
#48. Slaves are men who did not take care of their future because if you neglect your future, you will be a slave to someone that did. #Quote by Ikechukwu Izuakor
Foresight quotes by Samuel Johnson
#49. Very few live by choice. Every man is placed in his present condition by causes which acted without his foresight, and with which he did not always willingly cooperate; and therefore you will rarely meet one who does not think the lot of his neighbor better than his own. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Foresight quotes by Baltasar Gracian
#50. The whole of life should be a process of deliberation to choose the right course. Reflection and foresight provide the means of living in anticipation. #Quote by Baltasar Gracian
Foresight quotes by Daniel Gilbert
#51. The mistakes we make when we try to imagine our personal futures are also lawful, regular, and systematic. They, too, have a pattern that tells us about the powers and limits of foresight in much the same way that optical illusions tell us about the powers and limits of eyesight. #Quote by Daniel Gilbert
Foresight quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte
#52. Vengeance has no foresight. #Quote by Napoleon Bonaparte
Foresight quotes by Abheek Kakkar
#53. Have the foresight to see your future but do not spend your present there. #Quote by Abheek Kakkar
Foresight quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith
#54. The foresight of financial experts was, as so often, a poor guide to the future. #Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith
Foresight quotes by Eleanor Catton
#55. A man with no memory was a man with no foresight - to #Quote by Eleanor Catton
Foresight quotes by Joan D. Chittister
#56. The kind of "blind obedience" once theologized as the ultimate step to holiness, is itself blind. It blinds a person to the insights and foresight and moral perspective of anyone other than an authority figure. #Quote by Joan D. Chittister
Foresight quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#57. Vision is the foresight or forecast or insight into the future. Vision is the picture of one's destiny or accomplishment, or simply what a person is meant to do or become. #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Foresight quotes by Robert Burns
#58. But little Mouse, you are not alone,
In proving foresight may be vain:
The best laid schemes of mice and men
Go often askew,
And leave us nothing but grief and pain,
For promised joy!
Still you are blest, compared with me! #Quote by Robert Burns
Foresight quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#59. The sun of her [Great Britain] glory is fast descending to the horizon. Her philosophy has crossed the Channel, her freedom the Atlantic, and herself seems passing to that awful dissolution, whose issue is not given human foresight to scan. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Foresight quotes by Tony Blair
#60. There is no doubt that the time to act is now. It is now that timely action can avert disaster. It is now that with foresight and will such action can be taken without disturbing the essence of our way of life, by adjusting behaviour, but not altering it entirely. #Quote by Tony Blair
Foresight quotes by Steven Pinker
#61. If [t]he mind is a system with many parts, then an innate desire is just one component among others. Some faculties may endow us with greed or lust or malice, but others may endow us with sympathy, foresight, selfrespect, a desire for respect from others, and an ability to learn from our own experiences and those of our neighbors. These are physical circuits residing in the prefrontal cortex and other parts of the brain, not occult powers of a poltergeist, and they have a genetic basis and an evolutionary history no less than the primal urges. It is only the Blank Slate and the Ghost in the Machine that make people think that drives are "biological" but that thinking and decision making are something else. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Foresight quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#62. If humans one day become extinct from a catastrophic collision, there would be no greater tragedy in the history of life in the universe. Not because we lacked the brain power to protect ourselves but because we lacked the foresight. The dominant species that replaces us in post-apocalyptic Earth just might wonder, as they gaze upon our mounted skeletons in their natural history museums, why large-headed Homo sapiens fared no better than the proverbially pea-brained dinosaurs. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Foresight quotes by Susan Griffin
#63. Many a business depends for its success on some girl who is smart enough to see to it that her boss gets his work done, who sometimes even does his work for him, who keeps everybody satisfied and happy, and who has enough foresight to control new situations as they occur. How do you go about finding such a jewel? ... RICHARD and RUBIN, How to Select and Direct the Office Staff #Quote by Susan Griffin
Foresight quotes by George MacDonald
#64. Where is the good of planning upon an "if?" To trust is to get ready, uncle says. Trust is better than foresight. #Quote by George MacDonald
Foresight quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#65. when you do great things, think as if you missed the mark by an inch; walk as if you are yet to face the greatest task; talk as if you are yet to have the best preparation for the momentous moment and dream as if you are fighting a battalion of tasks #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Foresight quotes by Barry Ritholtz
#66. I credit Google for having the foresight to identify threats to its main business of selling advertising against search results. The potential loss of market share in the mobile space led them to the Android acquisition. #Quote by Barry Ritholtz
Foresight quotes by Evan Esar
#67. Hindsight is good, foresight is better; but second sight is best of all. #Quote by Evan Esar
Foresight quotes by Seneca.
#68. Wild animals run from the dangers they actually see, and once they have escaped them worry no more. We however are tormented alike by what is past and what is to come. A number of our blessings do us harm, for memory brings back the agony of fear while foresight brings it on prematurely. No one confines his unhappiness to the present. #Quote by Seneca.
Foresight quotes by Bertrand Russell
#69. [Industrialism's soon diminishing] capacity to supply human needs could be prevented if men exercised any restraint or foresight in their present frenzied exploitation. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Foresight quotes by Ali Ibn Abi Talib
#70. One who thinks and reflects develops his foresight and vision. #Quote by Ali Ibn Abi Talib
Foresight quotes by Tom Clancy
#71. Panic is something that good operations officers plan for. #Quote by Tom Clancy
Foresight quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#72. Pity is a sense of our own misfortunes in those of another man; it is a sort of foresight of the disasters which may befall ourselves. We assist others,, in order that they may assist us on like occasions; so that the services we offer to the unfortunate are in reality so many anticipated kindnesses to ourselves. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Foresight quotes by Jack Ma
#73. A leader should be a visionary and have more foresight than an employee. #Quote by Jack Ma
Foresight quotes by William Wordsworth
#74. And now I see with eye serene
The very pulse of the machine
A being breathing thoughtful breath
A traveler betwixt life and death
The reason firm the temperate will
Endurance Foresight Strength and skill #Quote by William Wordsworth
Foresight quotes by Jim Butcher
#75. One can have only as much preparation as he has foresight. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Foresight quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#76. He who has foresight has more than two eyes. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Foresight quotes by Colin Cotterill
#77. the overriding thought in my mind is that I didn't have the foresight to say goodbye or thank you to the people I love. That sounds corny, I know, but what's wrong with corny? It has its place. #Quote by Colin Cotterill
Foresight quotes by Kresley Cole
#78. Nix and Lothaire:

When the collar dropped to the ground, Lothaire rolled his head on his neck. But instead of disappearing immediately, he traced to stand mere feet from Nïx.
A towering vampire with skin like marble and chillingly flawless features was staring down a petite Valkyrie with crazed eyes and a cryptic smile.
The tension between the two was palpable. Even on the verge of flipping the fuck out, Regin couldn't look away.
"The Accession grinds on, does it not?" Lothaire said.
"Just like old times." Nïx winked. "Alas, Dorada will come for you once she rises again."
"I'll be ready." He narrowed his red eyes. "You've likely foreseen this moment. Tell me, are we to fight now? As in the past?"
"You defy foresight, Lothaire."
"That's only fair, Phenïx, since you've long defied insight." Phenïx?
Nïx canted her head. "What does your Endgame tell you?"
"That white queen will never take black king." He gave her a formal bow. "Until our next match."
"There won't be a next match, vampire."
His brow creased into a frown, the Enemy of Old disappeared. #Quote by Kresley Cole
Foresight quotes by Murray Rothbard
#79. Soaking the rich would not only be profoundly immoral, it would drastically penalize the very virtues: thrift, business foresight, and investment, that have brought about our remarkable standard of living. It would truly be killing the goose that lays the golden eggs. #Quote by Murray Rothbard
Foresight quotes by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
#80. No one knows the future, but the present offers clues and hints on its direction. #Quote by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
Foresight quotes by Jamais Cascio
#81. Many futurists use a checklist approach to make sure they're covering a sufficiently wide set of topics in terms of both research and brainstorming during a foresight exercise. #Quote by Jamais Cascio
Foresight quotes by Walter Isaacson
#82. There should be an honored place in history for statesmen whose ideas turned out to be right. #Quote by Walter Isaacson
Foresight quotes by Dr Lloyd Magangeni
#83. History is the insight to foresight #Quote by Dr Lloyd Magangeni
Foresight quotes by Ansel Adams
#84. At one with the power of the American landscape, and renowned for the patient skill and timeless beauty of his work, photographer Ansel Adams has been visionary in his efforts to preserve this country's wild and scenic areas, both in film and on Earth. Drawn to the beauty of nature's monuments, he is regarded by environmentalists as a monument himself, and by photographers as a national institution. It is through his foresight and fortitude that so much of America has been saved for future Americans. #Quote by Ansel Adams
Foresight quotes by Tove Jansson
#85. The quiet transition from autumn to winter is not a bad time at all. It's a time for protecting and securing things and for making sure you've got in as many supplies as you can. It's nice to gather together everything you possess as close to you as possible, to store up your warmth and your thoughts and burrow yourself into a deep hole inside, a core of safety where you can defend what is important and precious and your very own. Then the cold and the storms and the darkness can do their worst. They can grope their way up the walls looking for a way in, but they won't find one, everything is shut, and you sit inside, laughing in your warmth and your solitude, for you have had foresight. #Quote by Tove Jansson
Foresight quotes by John Adams
#86. Oh! the wisdom, the foresight and the hindsight and the rightsight and the leftsight, the northsight and the southsight, and the eastsight and the westsight that appeared in that august assembly. #Quote by John Adams
Foresight quotes by Suzy Kassem
#87. We were created with more than five senses. Apart from the basic five, we also have the gut and the third eye. The gut being the seat of all feeling, and the third eye being the seat of intuition (foresight). #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Foresight quotes by John Mott
#88. Foresight has been a distinguishing characteristic of all truly great political, religious, and social betterment leaders. #Quote by John Mott
Foresight quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte
#89. Vengeance is without foresight. #Quote by Napoleon Bonaparte
Foresight quotes by Richard Adams
#90. Stubbs may have envisaged the skeleton inside the horse, but most of us do not #Quote by Richard Adams
Foresight quotes by Carlos E. Asay
#91. It is easy to act as a Saturday morning quarterback and replay the game lost the night before. All of us seem to have better hindsight (the ability to see after the event what should have been done) than foresight #Quote by Carlos E. Asay
Foresight quotes by Richard Dawkins
#92. In giving rise to man, the evolutionary process has, apparently for the first and only time in the history of the Cosmos, become conscious of itself.
So, the Devil's Chaplain might conclude, Stand tall, Bipedal Ape. The shark may outswim you, the cheetah outrun you, the swift outfly you, the capuchin outclimb you, the elephant outpower you, the redwood outlast you. But you have the biggest gifts of all: the gift of understanding the ruthlessly cruel process that gave us all existence; the gift of revulsion against its implications; the gift of foresight - something utterly foreign to the blundering short-term ways of natural selection - and the gift of internalizing the very cosmos. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Foresight quotes by Adolf Hitler
#93. I am firmly convinced to-day that, generally speaking, it is in youth that men lay the essential groundwork of their creative thought, wherever that creative thought exists. I make a distinction between the wisdom of age- which can only arise from the greater profundity and foresight that are based on the experiences of a long life- and the creative genius of youth, which blossoms out in thoughts and ideas with inexhaustible fertility, without being able to put these into practice immediately, because of their very superabundance. These furnish the building materials and plans for the future; and it is from them that age takes the stones and builds the edifice, unless the so-called wisdom of the years may have smothered the creative genius of youth. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Foresight quotes by Dwight Macdonald
#94. Superior insight into history used to be exhilarating for radicals: if we can see more clearly than the Enemy what is really going on, then we can use this knowledge to advance our values. But now the clearer one's insight, the more numbed one becomes. Thus during the war, some of us wrote articles in this magazine predicting that the conflict would not solve anything,... that the methods used by the Allies were infecting the moral atmosphere, that Russia and America would clash violently as soon as Germany was disposed of, etc., etc.... It turns out we were more right than [the rest]. This should make us feel prescient, confident. Instead, it is discouraging. #Quote by Dwight Macdonald
Foresight quotes by Usher
#95. Success is about dedication. You may not be where you want to be or do what you want to do when you're on the journey. But you've got to be willing to have vision and foresight that leads you to an incredible end. #Quote by Usher
Foresight quotes by Fanny Burney
#96. Childhood is never troubled with foresight. #Quote by Fanny Burney
Foresight quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#97. Often a certain abdication of prudence and foresight is an element of success. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Foresight quotes by Gustave Le Bon
#98. should a legislator, wishing to impose a new tax, choose that which would be theoretically the most just? By no means. In practice the most unjust may be the best for the masses. Should it at the same time be the least obvious, and apparently the least burdensome, it will be the most easily tolerated. It is for this reason that an indirect tax, however exorbitant it be, will always be accepted by the crowd, because, being paid daily in fractions of a farthing on objects of consumption, it will not interfere with the habits of the crowd, and will pass unperceived. Replace it by a proportional tax on wages or income of any other kind, to be paid in a lump sum, and were this new imposition theoretically ten times less burdensome than the other, it would give rise to unanimous protest. This arises from the fact that a sum relatively high, which will appear immense, and will in consequence strike the imagination, has been substituted for the unperceived fractions of a farthing. The new tax would only appear light had it been saved farthing by farthing, but this economic proceeding involves an amount of foresight of which the masses are incapable. #Quote by Gustave Le Bon
Foresight quotes by J. William Fulbright
#99. What a curious picture it is to find man, homo sapiens, of divine origin, we are told, seriously considering going underground to escape the consequences of his own folly. With a little wisdom and foresight, surely it is not yet necessary to forsake life in the fresh air and in the warmth of sunlight. What a paradox if our own cleverness in science should force us to live underground with the moles. #Quote by J. William Fulbright
Foresight quotes by Grace Paley
#100. Hindsight, usually looked down upon, is probably as valuable as foresight, since it does include a few facts. #Quote by Grace Paley
Foresight quotes by Lily Brooks-Dalton
#101. She tried to calm herself, to still the drift of her body, but the lack of gravity made it difficult to remain stationary. Her shoulder bumped one of the speakers, her hip nudged a screen, and the more she fought to be still, the more she drifted. She was fighting an absence instead of a presence, and it suddenly chilled her. Which way was up? As the floor dropped away to become the ceiling, she felt the thread of logic she'd followed throughout the mission, throughout her entire life, snap. Hard work and intelligence could not keep her safe−there was nothing she could have done, no amount of effort or foresight or skill could have kept any of this from happening. Nothing in this universe could possibly keep any of them safe. #Quote by Lily Brooks-Dalton
Foresight quotes by Henry Kissinger
#102. Side by side with the limitless possibilities opened up by the new technologies, reflection about international order must include the internal dangers of societies driven by mass consensus, deprived of the context and foresight needed on terms compatible with their historical character. In every other era, this has been considered the essence of leadership; in our own, it risks being reduced to a series of slogans designed to capture immediate short-term approbation. Foreign policy is in danger of turning into a subdivision of domestic politics instead of an exercise in shaping the future. If the major countries conduct their policies in this manner internally, their relations on the international stage will suffer concomitant distortions. The search for perspective may well be replaced by a hardening of differences, statesmanship by posturing. As diplomacy is transformed into gestures geared toward passions, the search for equilibrium risks giving way to a testing of limits. #Quote by Henry Kissinger

#103. Foresight is an imperfect thing - all prevision in economics is imperfect. #Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith
Foresight quotes by Charles Dickens

Foresight quotes by Alexander Hamilton

Foresight quotes by Brian Edwards
#107. With no navigational skills, her travels became aimless, and after several days she began to experience excruciating hunger, as she had not the foresight to pack food before she set out. She drifted through tiny villages and saw juicy fruits and vegetables growing in the gardens of the peasants, but could not bring herself to beg for food or attempt to steal it. She ate small beetles and grasshoppers, since she had no hunting skills. She chewed on the bitter roots of sassafras trees, which turned her stomach sour but provided a small amount of nourishment.

Foresight quotes by Benjamin R. Smith
#108. Several things ran through my head as I watched this silent ballet: First, I was running low on pears, my favorite morning fruit. Second, I, as a woman, am much smarter than men, I having displayed foresight this male apparently lacked in regards to trash day. And finally, I desperately needed to see more of this man in his boxers. #Quote by Benjamin R. Smith
Foresight quotes by Adam Driver
#109. I don't really have foresight as an actor as far as career trajectory - I just stick to no-brainer situations. #Quote by Adam Driver
Foresight quotes by Edmund Burke
#110. Rage and frenzy will pull down more in half an hour than prudence, deliberation, and foresight can build up in a hundred years. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Foresight quotes by Boethius
#111. Verily this is the very crown of my misfortunes, that men's opinions for the most part look not to real merit, but to the event; and only recognise foresight where Fortune has crowned the issue with her approval. #Quote by Boethius
Foresight quotes by Frederick The Great
#112. Do not neglect the principles of foresight and know that often, puffed up with success, armies have lost the fruit of their heroism through a feeling of false security. #Quote by Frederick The Great
Foresight quotes by William Hirstein
#113. If you look at your average contemporary person, the potential for tragedy is immense. The people and things we love and value are strewn across the globe. Any number of health disasters can befall you or them.
The truth is depressing. We are going to die, most likely after illness; all our friends will likewise die; we are tiny insignificant dots on a tiny planet. Perhaps with the advent of broad intelligence and foresight comes the need for confabulation and self-deception to keep depression and its consequent lethargy at bay. There needs to be a basic denial of our finitude and insignificance in the larger scene. It takes a certain amount of chutzpah just to get out of bed in the morning. #Quote by William Hirstein
Foresight quotes by Gottfried Leibniz
#114. According to their [Newton and his followers] doctrine, God Almighty wants to wind up his watch from time to time: otherwise it would cease to move. He had not, it seems, sufficient foresight to make it a perpetual motion. Nay, the machine of God's making, so imperfect, according to these gentlemen; that he is obliged to clean it now and then by an extraordinary concourse, and even to mend it, as clockmaker mends his work. #Quote by Gottfried Leibniz
Foresight quotes by Frederic Bastiat
#115. Nothing is more senseless than to base so many expectations on the state, that is, to assume the existence of collective wisdom and foresight after taking for granted the existence of individual imbecility and improvidence. #Quote by Frederic Bastiat
Foresight quotes by Nikita Gill
#116. Persephone, grant me the foresight to know when I must let go my old life to start anew.

Artemis, grant me the strength of your spine when you helped deliver Apollo, your own twin.

Athena, grant me the solidarity in your sinews for which you were born in all of your armour.

Aphrodite, grant me the kind of heart that always follows my passions true.

Andromeda grant me the wish to never fall out of love with the night sky or the glisten of it's stars.

And Hera, grant me your fury, so I can remind my enemies I am not the weakness they perceive, I am the oncoming storm, I am war. #Quote by Nikita Gill
Foresight quotes by Leland Cheuk
#117. Sure, I told him to fuck himself and yes, I paid for it dearly (ruptured spleen). But after my recovery and given the time to reflect, I have a better understanding of who I am penning this for. Not just for the parole board. Not just for wronged Chinese people, not for racist whites, not for my prison therapy group, not for Manny or Jaynuss, not for Momma, not for my once-again estranged father, not even for Lene (though I hope and, in weaker moments, pray she will read this one day), but for others, like myself. Those who lack foresight. Those often overwhelmed by the present. Those ignorant of and indifferent to the past. Those whose worst qualities come to the surface when tested. Those who are fertile ground for dubious moral judgment. Those who feel, in some mysterious but common sense, unmoored. #Quote by Leland Cheuk
Foresight quotes by Edward Tenner
#118. One of the characteristic problems of our time is how to close this gap between capabilities and foresight. #Quote by Edward Tenner

Foresight quotes by Karl Schroeder
#121. Around 2005, the Canadian army tapped me to do a dramatization for a series of foresight workshops they'd done. They had stacks of papers and needed it boiled down to something simple enough for a 4-star general to understand. We decided to do it as a story. That's how I created 'Crisis in Zefra.' #Quote by Karl Schroeder
Foresight quotes by Frederic Bastiat
#122. If socialists mean that under extraordinary circumstances, for urgent cases, the State should set aside some resources to assist certain unfortunate people, to help them adjust to changing conditions, we will, of course, agree. This is done now; we desire that it be done better. There is however, a point on this road that must not be passed; it is the point where governmental foresight would step in to replace individual foresight and thus destroy it. #Quote by Frederic Bastiat
Foresight quotes by Steven Pinker
#123. George Williams, the revered evolutionary biologist, describes the natural world as "grossly immoral." Having no foresight or compassion, natural selection "can honestly be described as a process for maximizing short-sighted selfishness." On top of all the miseries inflicted by predators and parasites, the members of a species show no pity to their own kind. Infanticide, siblicide, and rape can be observed in many kinds of animals; infidelity is common even in so-called pair-bonded species; cannibalism can be expected in all species that are not strict vegetarians; death from fighting is more common in most animal species than it is in the most violent American cities. Commenting on how biologists used to describe the killing of starving deer by mountain lions as an act of mercy, Williams wrote: "The simple facts are that both predation and starvation are painful prospects for deer, and that the lion's lot is no more enviable. Perhaps biology would have been able to mature more rapidly in a culture not dominated by Judeo-Christian theology and the Romantic tradition. It might have been well served by the First Holy Truth from [Buddha's] Sermon at Benares: "Birth is painful, old age is painful, sickness is painful, death is painful..."" As soon as we recognize that there is nothing morally commendable about the products of evolution, we can describe human psychology honestly, without the fear that identifying a "natural" trait is the same as condoning it. As Katharine Hepburn #Quote by Steven Pinker
Foresight quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#124. I think people believe empathy to be compassion, that compassion is an inner sense (a sense of the soul). But empathy is a sense, while compassion isn't a sense. Empathy is an affinity, a communion, a comprehension. They say that empathy is compassion, but I think that the two are independent of each other. You see, through empathy you will feel what another is feeling, including all those plans for manipulation and persuasion. You will feel everything, not just the parts that make you take compassion for the person, but also all the red flags! You see, empathy is a sense that works with the other senses such as foresight and intuition. So, we can feel compassion but we have to move with empathy. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Foresight quotes by Vasily Grossman
#125. This absolute lack of objectivity might be said to resemble nothing so much as the lack of objectivity these same people had shown during Stalin's life, when they had been so supremely worshipful of his mind and strength of will, of his foresight and genius. Their hysterical worship of Stalin and their total and unconditional rejection of him sprang from the same soil. #Quote by Vasily Grossman

Foresight quotes by Bill Bryson
#128. Durham Cathedral, like all great buildings of antiquity, is essentially just a giant pile of rubble held in place by two thin layers of dressed stone. But - and here is the truly remarkable thing - because that gloopy mortar was contained between two impermeable outer layers, air couldn't get to it, so it took a very long time - forty years to be precise - to dry out. As it dried, the whole structure gently settled, which meant that the cathedral masons had to build doorjambs, lintels, and the like at slightly acute angles so that they would ease over time into the correct alignments. And that's exactly what happened. After forty years of slow-motion sagging, the building settled into a position of impeccable horizontality, which it has maintained ever since. To me, that is just amazing - the idea that people would have the foresight and dedication to ensure a perfection that they themselves might never live to see. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Foresight quotes by Q'orianka Kilcher

Foresight quotes by Donald Jeffries
#131. Our society has come to adopt many of the draconian measures Orwell
tried to warn us about. Cameras monitor citizens from nearly every street
corner in the United Kingdom, and there are a steadily growing number
of them mounted on traffic lights in America. The fact that Orwell's 1984
remains a part of the required reading curriculum in many high schools
across the country is laughably ironic. What is truly sad is how many readers
acknowledge the brilliant foresight of Orwell yet fail to grasp how closely
present-day America (and England) resemble Winston Smith's Oceania. #Quote by Donald Jeffries
Foresight quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#132. To undo mistakes is always harder than not to create them originally, but we seldom have foresight. Therefore, we have no choice but to try to correct our past mistakes. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Foresight quotes by Maria Montessori
#133. Children have an anxious concern for living beings, and the satisfaction of this instinct fills them with delight. It is therefore easy to interest them in taking care of plants and especially of animals. Nothing awakens foresight in a small child such as this. When he knows that animals have need of him, that little plants will dry up if he does not water them, he binds together with a new thread of love today's passing moments with those of the morrow. #Quote by Maria Montessori
Foresight quotes by Jane McGonigal
#134. It's a bit counter-intuitive to think about the future in terms of the past. But ... I've learned an important trick: to develop foresight, you need to practice hindsight. Technologies, cultures, and climates may change, but our basic human needs and desires - to survive, to care for our families, and to lead happy, purposeful lives - remain the same.' p 5 #Quote by Jane McGonigal
Foresight quotes by Suzy Kassem
#135. I do believe that we have more than five senses. Apart from the basic five, we also have the gut and the third eye. The gut being the seat of all feeling, and the third eye being the seat of intuition (foresight). But what can we expect from science, which is incomplete and flawed? How can science be called the study of nature without it acknowledging the soul? Or the ether? If science did study both these two crucial elements, which I feel are at the very heart of nature, then it would be forced to also acknowledge organized design in nature – which would then lead one to discover the heart of the universe. The core of all existence, of all vibrations, of all matter. By doing so, would ultimately bring one to acknowledge cause and effect, and ultimately - the conscience. But never mind this "esoteric" ideology that could bring about world peace and the unity of all mankind. If man knew how connected he was to all things and how the effect of his every action has an impact on all things, then we would no longer be able to convince him that some life on earth is meaningless to justify war. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Foresight quotes by Malcolm Forbes
#136. There is just no way any management with any intelligence and foresight cannot recognize the value of a corporate image. It is the best, single marketable investment that a company can make. #Quote by Malcolm Forbes
Foresight quotes by Richard Dawkins
#137. Evolution, or its driving engine natural selection, has no foresight. In every generation within every species, the individuals best equipped to survive and reproduce contribute more than their fair share of genes to the next generation. The consequence, blind as it is, is the nearest approach to foresight that nature permits. [...] It is always tinkering: here shrinking a bit, there expanding a bit, constantly adjusting, putting on and taking off, optimising immediate reproductive success. Survival in future centuries doesn't enter into the calculation, for the good reason that it isn't really a calculation at all. It all happens automatically, as some genes survive in the gene pool and others don't. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Foresight quotes by Richard Dawkins
#138. Natural selection, the blind, unconscious, automatic process which Darwin discovered, and which we now know is the explanation forthe existence and apparently purposeful form of all life, has no purpose in mind. It has no mind and no mind's eye. It does not plan for the future. It has no vision, no foresight, no sight at all. If it can be said to play the role of the watchmaker in nature, it is the blind watchmaker. #Quote by Richard Dawkins

Foresight quotes by Amaka Imani Nkosazana
#144. Today is a new day! Let today be the day you free your mind from the prison of self doubt. Your thoughts can either hinder you or propel you to the next level. Precautions are necessary to maintain your safety and well-being. But fear and precautions are two different things. When you are afraid your doubt is increased. Do what makes you happy in order to satisfy the core of your existence.
Fear: to be afraid of something or someone whether the threat is real or imagined
Precaution: a measure taken in advance to prevent something from happening, prudent foresight
Doubt:a feeling of uncertainty or lack of conviction #Quote by Amaka Imani Nkosazana
Foresight quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#145. Now this is the point. You fancy me mad. Madmen know nothing. But you should have seen me. You should have seen how wisely I proceeded –with what caution –with what foresight –with what dissimulation I went to work! I was never kinder to the old man than during the whole week before I killed him. And every night, about midnight, I turned the latch of his door and opened it –oh so gently! And then, when I had made an opening sufficient for my head, I put in a dark lantern, all closed, closed, so that no light shone out, and then I thrust in my head. Oh, you would have laughed to see how cunningly I thrust it in! I moved it slowly –very, very slowly, so that I might not disturb the old man's sleep. It took me an hour to place my whole head within the opening so far that I could see him as he lay upon his bed. Ha! –would a madman have been so wise as this? And then, when my head was well in the room, I undid the lantern cautiously –oh, so cautiously –cautiously (for the hinges creaked) –I undid it just so much that a single thin ray fell upon the vulture eye. And this I did for seven long nights –every night just at midnight –but I found the eye always closed; and so it was impossible to do the work; for it was not the old man who vexed me, but his Evil Eye. And every morning, when the day broke, I went boldly into the chamber, and spoke courageously to him, calling him by name in a hearty tone, and inquiring how he has passed the night. So you see he would have been a very prof #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe

Foresight quotes by Victor Cherbuliez

Foresight quotes by Robert Kennedy
#152. We know that freedom has many dimensions. It is the right of the man who tills the land to own the land; the right of the workers to join together to seek better conditions of labor; the right of businessmen to use ingenuity and foresight to produce and distribute without arbitrary interference in a truly competitive economy. #Quote by Robert Kennedy
Foresight quotes by John Denham
#153. When any great design thou dost intend, Think on the means, the manner, and the end. #Quote by John Denham
Foresight quotes by John Dewey
#154. A genuine purpose always starts with an impulse. Obstruction of the immediate execution of an impulse converts it into a desire. Nevertheless neither impulse nor desire is itself a purpose. A purpose is an end-view. That is, it involves foresight of the consequences which will result from acting upon impulse. #Quote by John Dewey
Foresight quotes by Adolf Hitler
#155. I make a distinction between the wisdom of age - which can only arise from the greater profundity and foresight that are based on the experiences of a long life - and the creative genius of youth, which blossoms out in thought and ideas with inexhaustible fertility, without being able to put these into practice immediately, because of their very superabundance. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Foresight quotes by Alan W. Watts
#156. The truth is that people who live for the future are, as we say of the insane, "not quite all there" - or here: by overeagerness they are perpetually missing the point.

Foresight quotes by Scott Stossel

Foresight quotes by Fidel Castro
#159. It would have been the easiest thing in the world for us to build those emplacements under the guise of something totally different and they would have never been discovered. The amazing thing was that they weren't discovered earlier. It was a question of carelessness, lack of foresight. #Quote by Fidel Castro
Foresight quotes by Guy Gavriel Kay

Cranes fly through clouds.

Because I am powerless
To amend a broken world.
Sima Zian added, I love the man who wrote that, I told you before, but there is so much burden in Chan Du. Duty, assuming all tasks, can betray arrogance.

And the world is not broken any more than it always, always is. #Quote by Guy Gavriel Kay
Foresight quotes by Peter F. Drucker
#161. Entrepreneurial management in the new venture has four requirements: It requires, first, a focus on the market. It requires, second, financial foresight, and especially planning for cash flow and capital needs ahead. It requires, third, building a top management team long before the new venture actually needs one and long before it can actually afford one. And finally, it requires of the founding entrepreneur a decision in respect to his or her own role, area of work, and relationships. #Quote by Peter F. Drucker
Foresight quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#162. There are blessings in being close to the soil, in raising your own food even if it is only a garden in your yard and a fruit tree or two. Those families will be fortunate who, in the last days, have an adequate supply of food because of their foresight and ability to produce their own. #Quote by Ezra Taft Benson

Foresight quotes by Chanel Miller
#164. We live in a time where it has become difficult to distinguish between the President's words and that of a 19 year old assailant. Society gives women the near impossible task of separating harmlessness from danger, the foresight of knowing what some men are capable of. When we call out assault when we hear it, Trump says, "I don't think you understand. Just words. You are overreacting. Overly offended. Hysterical. Rude. Relax." So we dismiss threatening statements and warning signs, apologizing for our paranoia. We go into a party or a meeting, thinking it's just a party or meeting, but when we are taken advantage of and come crawling back damaged they say, "How could you be so naive? You failed to detect danger, let your guard down. What did you think would happen?" Trump made it clear the game is rigged, the rules keep changing. It doesn't matter what you think is assault because, in the end, he decides. #Quote by Chanel Miller

Foresight quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#169. Chess teaches foresight, by having to plan ahead; vigilance, by having to keep watch over the whole chess board; caution, by having to restrain ourselves from making hasty moves; and finally, we learn from chess the greatest maxim in life - that even when everything seems to be going badly for us we should not lose heart, but always hoping for a change for the better, steadfastly continue searching for the solutions to our problems. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Foresight quotes by Robin Sharma

#171. Practical atheism, seeing no guidance for human affairs but its own limited foresight, endeavors itself to play the god, and decide what will be good for mankind and what bad. #Quote by Herbert Spencer
Foresight quotes by M..
#172. We tend to think of imagination and foresight like we are prone to think of life (sometimes) -- as an inscrutable flash of something from the outside that magically takes us over some large boundary in one atomic step. We even call it a flash (of insight), a eureka moment, a light bulb in our heads that suddenly turns on. But if you reflect on this phenomenon for a moment, you know you don't go suddenly from a blank mind to a fully formed solution. You were already thinking about the problem, and other near solutions that don't work, when suddenly you see a new connection that enables you to reuse familiar things on a novel way. Insight comes in small increments, leveraging what was already there. #Quote by M..
Foresight quotes by Plato
#173. [I]t's necessary to exert very great foresight every time you go to blame or praise a man, so that you won't speak incorrectly ... For you shouldn't suppose that, while stones are sacred and pieces of wood, and birds, and snakes, human beings are not. Rather of all these things, the most sacred is the good human being, while the most polluted is the wicked.
Speech attributed to Socrates in Plato, Minos 319a, trans. Thomas L. Pangle, in The Roots of Political Philosophy: Ten Forgotten Socratic Dialogues, ed. Thomas L. Pangle (Ithaca: Cornell University Press, 1987), 63. #Quote by Plato

Foresight quotes by James E. Lovelock
#177. Earth may be alive: not as the ancients saw her--a sentient Goddess with a purpose and foresight--but alive like a tree. A tree that quietly exists, never moving except to sway in the wind, yet endlessly conversing with the sunlight and the soil. Using sunlight and water and nutrient minerals to grow and change. But all done so imperceptibly, that to me the old oak tree on the green is the same as it was when I was a child. #Quote by James E. Lovelock
Foresight quotes by Douglas Pagels

Have steppingstones to look forward to, milestones to look back upon, and -- in between -- do everything it takes to have an abundance of connect-the-dot days that lead to happiness. – Douglas Pagels, from 30 Beautiful Things That Are True About You

May you remember that though the roads we take can sometimes be difficult, those are often the ones that lead to the most beautiful views. – Douglas Pagels, from A Special Christmas Blessing Just for You

Love of family and love of friends is where everything beautiful begins. – Douglas Pagels, from A Special Christmas Blessing Just for You

I want you to be reminded from time to time that you are a wonderful gift, and one of the nicest things in this entire world... is your presence in it. – Douglas Pagels, from A Special Christmas Blessing Just for You

Do your part for the planet. Do all those things you know you "should" do. Our grandchildren will either have words of praise for our efforts and our foresight, or words that condemn us for forgetting that they will live here long after we are gone. Don't overlook the obvious: This is not a dress rehearsal. This is the real thing. Our presence has an impact, but our precautions do, too. – Douglas Pagels, from Words That Shine Like Stars
#Quote by Douglas Pagels
Foresight quotes by Eric Hoffer
#179. Nature of the Desire for Change:

There is in us a tendency to locate the shaping forces of our existence outside ourselves. Success and failure are unavoidably related in our minds with the state of things around us. Hence it is that people with a sense of fulfillment think it a good world and would like to conserve it as it is, while the frustrated favor radical change. The tendency to look for all causes outside ourselves persists even when it is clear that our state of being is the product of personal qualities such as ability, character, appearance, health and so on. "If anything ail a man," says Thoreau, "so that he does not perform his functions, if he have a pain in his bowels even … he forthwith sets about reforming - the world."

It is understandable that those who fail should incline to blame the world for their failure. The remarkable thing is that the successful, too, however much they pride themselves on their foresight, fortitude, thrift and other "sterling qualities," are at bottom convinced that their success is the result of a fortuitous combination of circumstances. The self-confidence of even the consistently successful is never absolute. They are never sure that they know all the ingredients which go into the making of their success. The outside world seems to them a precariously balanced mechanism, and so long as it ticks in their favor they are afraid to tinker with it. Thus the resistance to change and the ardent desire for it sprin #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Foresight quotes by Sonu Nigam
#180. My dad has a lot of foresight and decided that I would not do any shows in Mumbai till I became a singer and got to sing my own songs. He knew that if I started earning money from shows, I would not have the time and aggression to rough it out to become a singer. #Quote by Sonu Nigam
Foresight quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#181. I qualify it as pathetic. Pathetic
because despite the insatiable fire of my venereal appetite, I intended, with the most fervent force and foresight, to protect the purity of that twelve-year-old child. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Foresight quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
#182. In the deepest night of trouble and sorrow God gives us so much to be thankful for that we need never cease our singing. With all our wisdom and foresight we can take a lesson in gladness and gratitude from the happy bird that sings all night, as if the day were not long enough to tell its joy. #Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Foresight quotes by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
#183. "There's no such thing as mistakes – only a lack of foresight. #Quote by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Foresight quotes by Vincent De Paul
#184. Foresight is good when it is subject to the latter, but it becomes excessive when we are in a hurry to avoid something we fear. We rely more on our own efforts than on those of his Providence, and we think we are doing a great deal by anticipating His orders by our own disorder, which causes us to rely on human prudence rather than on his Word. #Quote by Vincent De Paul
Foresight quotes by Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha
#185. Between goal and success, there is one critical thing - perseverance: it is the fundamental belief to always succeed, the determination to turn goal to gold, the greatness to never give up, the foresight to dream that enables you to make it happen. #Quote by Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha
Foresight quotes by Joseph Addison
#186. The transition from cause to effect, from event to event, is often carried on by secret steps, which our foresight cannot divine, and our sagacity is unable to trace. #Quote by Joseph Addison
Foresight quotes by Simon Pont
#187. Short a bear market, go long in a bull market, either play, you do it on a hunch, harbor a whole lot of hope, then sit back and try not to bite your nails. Because no one knows anything for sure. Foresight is a hunch. Everyone is making it up as best they can, and life's winners are those who smile at the truth of it and can cut a wake through a Sargasso of ego, guesswork, bullshit and chance. #Quote by Simon Pont
Foresight quotes by Karen Blixen
#188. Perhaps he knew, as I did not, that the Earth was made round so that we would not see too far down the road. #Quote by Karen Blixen
Foresight quotes by Edmund Burke
#189. A true natural aristocracy is not a separate interest in the state, or separable from it. It is an essential integrant part of any large body rightly constituted. It is formed out of a class of legitimate presumptions, which taken as generalities, must be admitted for actual truths. To be bred in a place of estimation; to see nothing low and sordid from one's infancy; to be taught to respect one's self; to be habituated to the censorial inspection of the public eye; to look early to public opinion; to stand upon such elevated ground as to be enabled to take a large view of the wide-spread and infinitely diversified combinations of men and affairs in a large society; to have leisure to read, to reflect, to converse; to be enabled to draw the court and attention of the wise and learned wherever they are to be found; - to be habituated in armies to command and to obey; to be taught to despise danger in the pursuit of honor and duty; to be formed to the greatest degree of vigilance, foresight and circumspection, in a state of things in which no fault is committed with impunity, and the slightest mistakes draw on the most ruinous consequence - to be led to a guarded and regulated conduct, from a sense that you are considered as an instructor of your fellow-citizens in their highest concerns, and that you act as a reconciler between God and man - to be employed as an administrator of law and justice, and to be thereby amongst the first benefactors to mankind - to be a professor of #Quote by Edmund Burke
Foresight quotes by Susan Blackmore
#190. Humans are often credited with having real foresight, in distinction to the rest of biology which does not. For example, Dawkins compares the 'blind watchmaker' of natural selection with the real human one. 'A true watchmaker has foresight: he designs his cogs and springs, and plans their interconnections, with a future purpose in his mind's eye. Natural selection ... has no purpose in mind'.
I think this distinction is wrong. There is no denying that the human watchmaker is different from the natural one. We humans, by virtue of having memes, can think about cogs, and wheels, and keeping time, in a way that animals cannot. Memes are the mind tools with which we do it. But what memetics shows us is that the processes underlying the two kinds of design are essentially the same. They are both evolutionary processes that give rise to design through selection, and in the process they produce what looks like foresight. #Quote by Susan Blackmore
Foresight quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#191. An entrepreneur cannot be trained. A man becomes and entrepreneur by seizing an opportunity and filling the gap. No special education is required for such a display of keen judgment, foresight, and energy. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Foresight quotes by Robert X. Cringely
#192. In 1979, for example, Microsoft gave Boeing Commercial Airplane Co. the right to buy any Microsoft product for $50 per copy, until the end of time. Today most Microsoft applications sell in the $300 to $500 range, ten years from now they may cost thousands each. #Quote by Robert X. Cringely
Foresight quotes by Xun Zi
#193. If knowledge and foresight are too penetrating and deep, unify them with ease and sincerity. #Quote by Xun Zi
Foresight quotes by Friedrich A. Hayek
#194. The mind can never foresee its own advance #Quote by Friedrich A. Hayek
Foresight quotes by Loren Eiseley
#195. Black magic, the magic of the primeval chaos, blots out or transmogrifies the true form of things. At the stroke of twelve the princess must flee the banquet or risk discovery in the rags of a kitchen wench; coach reverts to pumpkin. Instability lies at the heart of the world. With uncanny foresight folklore has long toyed symbolically with what the nineteenth century was to proclaim a reality - namely, that form is an illusion of the time dimension, that the magic flight of the pursued hero or heroine through frogskin and wolf coat has been, and will continue to be, the flight of all men. #Quote by Loren Eiseley
Foresight quotes by Rachel Carson
#196. The earth's vegetation is part of a web of life in which there are intimate and essential relations between plants the the earth, between plants and other plants, between plants and animals. Sometimes we have no choice but to disturb these relationships, but we should do so thoughtfully, with full awareness that what we do may have consequences remote in time and place. #Quote by Rachel Carson
Foresight quotes by Johnnie Dent Jr.
#197. Always plan no matter how improbable it seems. The bill for hindsight is much more expensive than the reciept for foresight. #Quote by Johnnie Dent Jr.
Foresight quotes by Paul Gibbons
#198. Many of the cataclysmic leadership failures were failures of rationality. The pendulum of leadership development needs to swing back toward the rational: strategy, creativity, foresight, decision-making, and analytics. #Quote by Paul Gibbons
Foresight quotes by Confucius
#199. Plan ahead or find trouble on the doorstep. #Quote by Confucius
