Problem - Quotes


That`s the problem with drinking, I thought, as I poured myself a drink. If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen.

Charles Bukowski

The problem with having a sense of humor is often that people you use it on aren`t in a very good mood.

Lou Holtz

The highest problem of any art is to cause by appearance the illusion of a higher reality.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


If an idea is not taken up and used as a solution to a problem it has no value. It becomes a non-idea. Lying in a drawer it is useless. Worse than useless, it’s a complete waste of space. Ideas have to be applied before they are recognized as good ideas. Even a bad idea executed Is better than a good idea undone. The longer it is used the better the idea is considered to be. That is why the wheel is reckoned to be the best idea ever.

Paul Arden

It is better to live in ignorance than with knowledge. Solving the problem is the exciting part, not knowing the answer. Once a conjuring trick is explained it loses its magic. The excitement of a game of football is in not knowing who is going to be the winner. Some people have success and rest on their laurels. The lucky ones continue to live in ignorance.

Paul Arden

Can you train yourself to love the right man? Of course you can. The problem is forgetting about the wrong man, the one passing by who came in a door that was left open without asking permission.

Paulo Coelho

Technology doesn't solve every problem of its own accord. If it did, we wouldn't have millions of people starving to death in a world with an oversupply of food.

Eli Pariser

Outside observers often assume that the more complicated a piece of mathematics is, the more mathematicians admire it. Nothing could be further from the truth. Mathematicians admire elegance and simplicity above all else, and the ultimate goal in solving a problem is to find the method that does the job in the most efficient manner.

Keith Devlin

Some things don`t matter much [...]. Like the color of a house. How big is that in the overall scheme of life? But lifting a person`s heart - now, that matters. The whole problem with people is [...] they know what matters, but they don`t choose it.

Sue Monk Kidd

No one can solve problems for someone whose problem is that they don`t want their problems solved.

Richard Bach

Science is always wrong. It never solves a problem without creating ten more.

George Bernard Shaw

Whenever you’re looking for a solution, you are feeling positive emotion - and whenever you’re looking at a problem, you’re feeling negative emotion, which, as you know, never gets us anywhere. But once you take the focus off yourself and your wants, and instead turn it toward how getting what you want might also benefit someone else, well then, you can’t help but succeed.

Alyson Noel

The greatest challenge to any thinker is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution.

Bertrand Russell

A general problem with much of the theology is that the God portrayed is too small. It is a god of a tiny world and not a god of a galaxy, much less of a universe.

Carl Sagan

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts.

Bertrand Russell
