Famous quotes with Mindlessly

  • In real world, the successful persons are those who adapt to the changes in their environment smartly and most effectively, and surely not those who resist mindlessly. No matter how strong, mighty and intelligent you may be, you are still vulnerable to the inevitable continuous changes in our world that are way beyond your control. History teaches us that even mighty dinosaurs, who emerged over 200 million years ago and ruled our planet for 135 million years, could not survive as they were unable to adapt to changes. So be Smart and Savvy to survive in today's fast paced dynamic world. Embrace the changes, even though you are stepping out of your comfort zone, and operating outside your element. Your strategic adaptation to changes, and effective Management of Change contain the seedlings to your survival and success. Cheers, my friend!
    Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
  • Metaphorically, the body becomes a machine to be driven or a garbage dump to be avoided. At the same time, the magnificent Mother in whose womb we live is mindlessly poisoned and raped. Surely, our insane denial has to be perceived and acted upon.
    Marion Woodman
  • Being open minded isn’t about accepting things mindlessly. Being open minded is about having the information and then making the best decisions you can. A chap called Ian Rowland who wrote a good book on cold-reading made the point that if you’re a chef and you think, ‘well I know if I put poison in this soup and give it to these 200 people it’s going to kill them but, hey, I’ll be open minded’, that’s not being open minded, that’s just being ignorant. That’s just not working with the information you’ve got. So we have information on things like placebo effect and information about cold-reading. These things exists – false memories and anecdotal [evidence], all those things that are important – and taking that on board is just about being able to make better decisions. That’s about being open minded. Ignoring them and putting them to one side in this pursuit of easy answers and ‘intuition is the be-all and end-all of truth’, that’s not being open minded at all. I think that’s very narrow minded and certainly to laugh at people who say that evidence is important, I think that’s hypocrisy of the worst kind, to call narrow minded.
