Skills Quotes

Six of the best book quotes about skills
  1. #1
    I’m cap’n here because I’m the best man by a long sea-mile.
  2. #2
    “For my greatest skill has been to want but little.”
  3. #3
    “Western parents try to respect their children’s individuality, encouraging them to pursue their true passions, supporting their choices, and providing positive reinforcement and a nurturing environment. By contrast, the Chinese believe that the best way to protect their children is by preparing them for the future, letting them see what they’re capable of, and arming them with skills, work habits, and inner confidence that no one can ever take away.”
  4. #4
    “Order is not enough. You can’t just be stable, and secure, and unchanging, because there are still vital and important new things to be learned. Nonetheless, chaos can be too much. You can’t long tolerate being swamped and overwhelmed beyond your capacity to cope while you are learning what you still need to know. Thus, you need to place one foot in what you have mastered and understood and the other in what you are currently exploring and mastering. Then you have positioned yourself where the terror of existence is under control and you are secure, but where you are also alert and engaged. That is where there is something new to master and some way that you can be improved. That is where meaning is to be found.”
  5. #5
    “There are so many doors to open I am impatient to apply my own knowledge and skills to the problem.”
  6. #6
    “I then told them that God, to compensate for the weakness of man, had bestowed on him reason, invention, and skill in workmanship.”
