Anchor Quotes for the New Year

I’d like to share 10 quotes that this year will anchor my professional practice, keep my mind open, and remind me of my most deeply held beliefs. I hope you will find them sufficiently rewarding on their own, but also that they will encourage you to check out their sources as well.

  • Great teams need windows on the world, but biases mean that we mostly get mirrors. Margaret Heffernan, Beyond Measure, The Big Impact of Small Changes
  • The answer clearly lies in the Slinky itself. The hands that manipulate it suppress and/or release some behavior that is latent within the structure of the spring. That is the central highlight of systems theory. Donella H. Meadows, Thinking In Systems: A Primer

For perspective in these turbulent times

  • It would not be too much to say that American politics is characterized not by two dominant political parties or philosophies but by two competing enemies lists. Kevin Williamson, The End is Near and it’s Going to be Awesome
  • Errors come in opposites and we spend a lot of time thinking about how to avoid the worse, instead of keeping our eyes on the goal and finding a path between the errors. CS Lewis, Mere Christianity

And to be human first

  • Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him,and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6, English Standard Version

Please be so kind as to share your own anchor quotes, I’d love to read them and check out their sources as well.

    Thanks for sharing! I really

    Thanks for sharing! I really like the quote by C.S. Lewis (one of my favourite writers by the way). I find it really accurate, we should remind our students that they need to be instructed and that they need our guidance, this way they learn respect to the knowledge.

    Yeah. Student’s should have respect to the knowledge. If things would go other way then nobody would study without respect to the knowledge they gain. Like writers from 

    Papers Lead reviews. They don’t don’t respect knowlledge and they can’t write properly on the topics they don’t know. I think the only reason of this is that they too lazy to learn something new. So be careful people and grind the way to books.
