- My view
is to give everyone the space to grow in his own way. When
you see restructuring or separations in a family [firm], value
has almost always been destroyed. This is the first case where
value has been enhanced. In that way it has been a win-win
Ambani # Problems,
- You can
think you`ve made it and yet the next day`s press will always
be waiting for you, the public will always ask more of you.
In short, you can always do better!
Armani # Expectations,
women don't have the same body image problems as white women.
They are proud of their bodies. Black men love big butts.
Banks # Black,
- I don't
want the show to be extremely celebrity heavy. I want the
focus to be on real issues affecting women today.
Banks # Focus,
- As a
politician, however, I am ashamed to speak of poverty eradication
in such terms. I see clearly that the motivation has weakened
with regard to the initial objective of eradicating poverty.
Manuel Barroso # Poverty,
ideas will always get funded, so that's not going to be a
problem. But you will see that it will be harder and harder
for bad ideas to get funded.
Bezos # Good,
the situation is only a problem because it is looked at in
a certain way. Looked at in another way, the right course
of action may be so obvious that the problem no longer exists.
de Bono # Problems,
- We may
need to solve problems not by removing the cause but by designing
the way forward even if the cause remains in place.
de Bono # Solutions,
- It is
well known that "problem avoidance" is an important
part of problem solving. Instead of solving the problem you
go upstream and alter the system so that the problem does
not occur in the first place.
de Bono # Problems,
of focusing on the world's problems, give your attraction
and energy to trust, love, abundance, education, and peace.
Byrne # Focus,
with people is probably the biggest problem you face, especially
if you are in business. Yes, and that is also true if you
are a housewife, architect or engineer.
Carnegie # Deals,
talks can there be otherwise? It is useless trying to resolve
the problem under bombs.
Chernomyrdin # Talks,
- In a
large organization it is frequently difficult for a leader
to have an accurate sense f the company's affairs because
reports are often afraid to be candid about problems.
Csikszentmihalyi # Company,
- One problem
people have is that they lie to themselves. You may think
you are more talented then the next guy. Which is exactly
what the next guy thinks as well.
Cuban # Problems,
- I think
the biggest disease the world suffers from in this day and
age is the disease of people feeling unloved.
Diana # Love,
I go on a ride, I'm always thinking of what's wrong with the
thing and how it can be improved.
Disney # Thinking,
- My biggest
problem? Well, I'd say it's been my biggest problem all my
life. Money. It takes a lot of money to make these dreams
come true. From the very start it was a problem.
Disney # Problems,
you innovate, you've got to be prepared for everyone telling
you you're nuts.
Ellison # Innovative,
- The Net
as a whole is not that reliable, so our blips in service don't
cause major problems. However, we are certainly working on
improving our own reliability as well as those sites that
we depend on.
Filo # Internet,
run into problems where governments don't share those values.
Long term, these values will win out.
Filo # Government,
people spend more time and energy in going around problems
than in trying to solve them.
Ford # Time
you start to look into the guts of climate change you find
that just about every scientific institution in the world
is conducting research on the issue.
Garrett # Climate
- You need
to think about your company's fundamental business issues
and develop a long-term business strategy to solve problems
and take advantage of the opportunities your analysis unearths.
Gates # Thinking,
- You have
to study what customers say about the problems with your products
and stay tuned in to what they want, extrapolating from leading-edge
buyers to predict future requirements.
Gates # Customers,
- We are
constantly being told that we've never been wealthier. And
many of us are. On average we all are. But that's just the
problem.. no one is average.
Gillard # Wealth,
are many who still do not believe that global warming is a
problem at all. And it's no wonder: because they are the targets
of a massive and well-organized campaign of disinformation
lavishly funded by polluters who are determined to prevent
any action to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that cause
global warming out of a fear that their profits might be affected
if they had to stop dumping so much pollution into the atmosphere.
Gore # Problems,
- We are
continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised
as insoluble problems.
Iacocca # Opportunity,
- We have
bloated bureaucracies in Corporate America. The root of the
problem is the absence of real corporate democracy.
Icahn # Problems,
- I believe
our biggest issue is the same biggest issue that the whole
world is facing, and that's habitat destruction.
Irwin # Belief,
- We wish
to make our lives simple, certain, and smooth, and for that
reason problems are taboo.
Jung # Life,
are numerous instances of an intellectual problem, unsolved
in the waking state, being solved in a dream.
Jung # Problems,
- It is
very helpful to have a partner on whom you can rely in any
situation. But the problem starts because some people don't
like it that one twin would be president and the other prime
Kaczynski # Relationships,
- The improvement
of relations with German is positive, but this does not mean
that we no longer have very important problems.
Kaczynski # Improvement,
- We are
already seeing problems from the introduction of the euro.
At the moment it's mainly Italy that's complaining, but there's
nothing surprising in that, seeing how standards of living
have fallen there since the currency was brought in.
Kaczynski # Problems,
- If this
Government cannot get the adjustment, get manufacturing going
again, and keep moderate wage outcomes and a sensible economic
policy, then Australia is basically done for. We will end
up being a third rate economy... a banana republic.
Keating # Government,
- For John
Howard to get to any high moral ground he would have to
first climb out of the volcanic hole he's dug for himself
over the last decade.
Keating # Politicians,
don't like the idea of thinking long term. Many are desperately
seeking short term answers because they have money problems
to be solved today.
Kiyosaki # Thinking,
- The trouble
in America is not that we are making too many mistakes, but
that we are making too few.
Knight # America,
- I have
ALWAYS believed that each man makes his own happiness and
is responsible for his own problems.
Kroc # Problems,
a bit more dangerous. Low-level pilots have the ability to
descend before they get into trouble. But we have a great
deal of confidence in our crew and our craft.
Liniger # Problems,
who work together will win, whether it be against complex
football defenses, or the problems of modern society.
Lombardi # Winning,
- The main
thing is that Belarus and Russia, making coordinated foreign
policy moves, do not limit themselves to bilateral cooperation
but also find coordinated solutions to key problems of world
Lukashenko # Russia,
- I think
capital punishment works great. Every killer you kill never
Maher # Punishment,
we talk about values, I think of rationality in solving problems.
That's something I value. Fairness, kindness, generosity,
tolerance. When they talk about values, they're talking about
things like going to church, voting for Bush, being loyal
to Jesus, praying. These are not values.
Maher # Challenging,
- We are
a nation that is unenlightened because of religion. I do believe
that. I think religion stops people from thinking. I think
it justified crazies.
Maher # Nation,
- If your
client says "maybe", you are suddenly in the box
seat. You really can't lose. If the deal falls over, it's
no problem. But if the other party really wants the deal,
you are in control.
Markson # Clients,
books and experience I have learned not to worry about business
problems, not to let them overwhelm me. I prefer to compartmentalize
- to mentally isolate the problems and put each into its own
imaginary folder, just like a filing cabinet or computer program.
Markson # Experience,
- The big
problem in making the hard decisions has much to do with the
personal and professional well-being of the person making
Martin # Decisions,
always sets itself only such tasks as it can solve; since,
looking at the matter more closely, we will always find that
the task itself arises only when the material conditions necessary
for its solution already exist or are at least in the process
Marx # Solutions,
- So often,
we blame other people when, really, the problem is right down
in here. I'm not happy. I don't know what's wrong. If I just
had another job, I could be happy. If I just get married,
I would be happy. Well if I just wasn't married, I would be
happy. Well, if I just had some kids, I'll be happy. I'll
be happy when these kids finally grow up and get out of here.
If I had a bigger house, I would be happy. Well, I got a big
house. Now if I just had a maid to clean, I'd be happy. Well,
now if I just had a maid, I could get along with better, I'd
Meyer # Blame,
- I had
lots of hurt and lots of pain, lots of woundedness, bruises,
broken heartedness in my life. I was abused sexually by my
father, abused mentally, emotionally. My mom didn't know what
to do about it, and she was being hurt in the process. So
she just didn't deal with it. And I can guarantee you, just
because you don't deal with something, that doesn't make it
Meyer # Experience,
- 80% of
people's problems are about how they feel about themselves.
Meyer # Truth,
- God doesn't
tell you to do hard things so He can stand back and laugh
and watch you struggle. He tells you to do things the things
that He knows are gonna work out to your good in the end.
Meyer # God,
are fought in our minds every day. When we begin to feel the
battle is just too difficult and want to give up, we must
choose to resist negative thoughts and be determined to rise
above our problems.
Meyer # Challenging,
we're bombarded with doubts and fears, we must take a stand
and say: "I'll never give up! God's on my side. He loves
me, and He's helping me! I'm going to make it!"
Meyer # Experience,
- Too often
we think of being tempted as being enticed to do big things
like stealing, murdering or committing adultery. But most
often we're tempted to be impatient, stingy, jealous, greedy
or any number of other things that we consider lesser sins.
Meyer # Experience,
all this wealth, the problem is not who's going buy assets,
it's are there any assets to buy with all the liquidity in
Milken # Rich,
- The real
issue is the rate of return. If it increases, it solves the
problems. The issue will be, "Where can I invest?"
not "Who's the buyer."
Milken # Problem,
polluted the stratosphere with these chlorine and bromine
compounds, and because it's now colder, and because we have
this change in the climate, we're getting more ozone loss
than we would have gotten in a normal year.
Newman # Environmental,
don't expect government to solve all their problems. But they
sense, deep in their bones, that with just a slight change
in priorities, we can make sure that every child in America
has a decent shot at life, and that the doors of opportunity
remain open to all. They know we can do better.
Obama # Government,
- We all
need to start making some changes to how our families eat.
Now, everyone loves a good Sunday dinner. Me included. And
there's nothing wrong with that. The problem is when we eat
Sunday dinner Monday through Saturday.
Obama # Family,
we can work on the problems, we have to fix our souls. Our
souls are broken in this nation.
Obama # Problems,
got a passion for solving a problem that I think I can solve
in a new way. And that maybe it helps that nobody has done
it before as well.
Omidyar # Passion,
- The lesson
of the last year is this: foreign policy can't be managed
through the politics of personality, and our President would
do well to take note of an observation John F. Kennedy made
once he was in office - that all of the world's problems aren't
his predecessor's fault.
Palin # Politics,
Society will find no solution to the ecological problem unless
it takes a serious look at its lifestyles.
John Paul II # Ecology,

and therefore... prove ultimately futile.

and make strong.
Vincent Peale # Problems,
- The widespread
availability of information is the only basis for effective
day-to-day problem solving, which abets continuous improvement
Peters # Problems,
is about compromise. You must figure out a way to maximize
your time with your family. By spending your money to buy
affection, you may be putting their future in jeopardy and
making the problem worse.
I did, all my actions, all of the problems I had I dedicate
to God and to Chile, because I kept Chile from becoming Communist.
Pinochet # God,
- The most
dangerous thing about student riots is that adults take them
Pompidou # Serious,
is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their
problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have
either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you
do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.
Powell # Leadership,
- I thought
that the Iraqi war was absolutely damaging our interests and
world interests and would become a nightmare. And now I don't
want to say I was right, but let us simply put the real problem
on the table.
Prodi # Politics,
- The problem
of Italy is not really a question of age. Japan has an older
population, and it is now in full economic recovery. The problem
is that Italy is old in the structure of the society.
Prodi # Problems,
give us the ability to hang on and that ability changes who
we are. When our character is permanently molded by the trials
we are stronger and the end result is hope.
Ramsey # Problems,
- I came
to realize that my money problems, worries, and shortages
largely began and ended with the person in my mirror. I realized
also that if I could learn to manage the character I shaved
with every morning, I would win with money.
Ramsey # Worry,
- The key
to handling problems and conflict within an organization is
to keep the channels of communication wide open.
Roddick # Problems,
- Mr Howard's
problem is for so long he's been a climate change sceptic,
how can he, therefore, put himself to the country as part
of a climate change solution for the future.
Rudd # Thinking,
Street indices predicted nine out of the last five recessions!
Samuelson # Economic,

Stalin # Solutions,
- I'm always
on the lookout for those good, simple solutions to everyday
Stewart # Problems,
managers who make tough decisions to cut jobs provide the
only true job security in todays world. Weak managers
are the problem. Weak managers destroy jobs.
Welch # Management,
needs to understand Islam, because this is the one religion
that erases from its society the race problem.
X # America,
has a very serious problem. Not only does America have a very
serious problem, but our people have a very serious problem.
America's problem is us. We're her problem. The only reason
she has a problem is she doesn't want us here.
