„And the wicked thing is, that when we're really upset, we always take it out on the people who are closest and whom we love the most.“

„We love those who hate our enemies, and if we had no enemies there would be very few people whom we should love.“

—  Bertrand Russell logician, one of the first analytic philosophers and political activist 1872 - 1970

1950s, What Desires Are Politically Important? (1950)
Kontext: We love those who hate our enemies, and if we had no enemies there would be very few people whom we should love.
All this, however, is only true so long as we are concerned solely with attitudes towards other human beings. You might regard the soil as your enemy because it yields reluctantly a niggardly subsistence. You might regard Mother Nature in general as your enemy, and envisage human life as a struggle to get the better of Mother Nature. If men viewed life in this way, cooperation of the whole human race would become easy. And men could easily be brought to view life in this way if schools, newspapers, and politicians devoted themselves to this end. But schools are out to teach patriotism; newspapers are out to stir up excitement; and politicians are out to get re-elected. None of the three, therefore, can do anything towards saving the human race from reciprocal suicide.

„We're always thinking about new markets we could enter, but it's only by saying no that you can concentrate on the things that are really important.“

—  Steve Jobs American entrepreneur and co-founder of Apple Inc. 1955 - 2011

As quoted in "The Seed of Apple's Innovation" in BusinessWeek (12 October 2004)
2000-04
Kontext: The system is that there is no system. That doesn't mean we don't have process. Apple is a very disciplined company, and we have great processes. But that's not what it's about. Process makes you more efficient.
But innovation comes from people meeting up in the hallways or calling each other at 10:30 at night with a new idea, or because they realized something that shoots holes in how we've been thinking about a problem. It's ad hoc meetings of six people called by someone who thinks he has figured out the coolest new thing ever and who wants to know what other people think of his idea.
And it comes from saying no to 1,000 things to make sure we don't get on the wrong track or try to do too much. We're always thinking about new markets we could enter, but it's only by saying no that you can concentrate on the things that are really important.
