Examination Quotes

Forget past mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you’re going to do now and do it.

William Durant

Never mind searching for who you are. Search for the person you aspire to be.

In all the work we do, our most valuable asset can be the attitude of self-examination. It is forgivable to make mistakes, but to stand fast behind a wall of self-righteousness and make the same mistake twice is not forgivable.

Dale E. Turner

If we did all the things we were capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.

Thomas Edison

It is a right, yes a duty, to search in cautious manner for the numbers, sizes, and weights, the norms for everything [God] has created. For He himself has let man take part in the knowledge of these things ... For these secrets are not of the kind whose research should be forbidden; rather they are set before our eyes like a mirror so that by examining them we observe to some extent the goodness and wisdom of the Creator.

Johannes Kepler

The best way to finish an unpleasant task is to get started.


Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.

Napoleon Hill

Let us be cautious in making assertions and critical in examining them, but tolerant in permitting linguistic forms.

Rudolf Carnap

The examination system, and the fact that instruction is treated mainly as a training for a livelihood, leads the young to regard knowledge from a purely utilitarian point of view as the road to money, not as the gateway to wisdom.

Bertrand Russell

Books that cannot bear examination, certainly ought not to be established as divine inspiration by penal laws.

John Adams

Sri Aurobindo

It must be said that today, at the end of its semantic evolution, the word 'terrorist' is an intrinsically propagandistic term. It has no neutral readability. It dispenses with all reasoned examination of political situations, of their causes and consequences.

Alain Badiou

Yes books are valuable. But no reading of books will take the place of a daily, candid, honest examination of what one has recently done, and what one is about to do - of a steady looking at one's self in the face (disconcerting though the sight may be).

Enoch Arnold Bennett

The history of science shows that the progress of science has constantly been hampered by the tyrannical influence of certain conceptions that finally came to be considered as dogma.

Louis de Broglie
