Quote Left I live in the Managerial Age, in a world of "Admin." The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid "dens of crime" that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern. Quote Right

Quote Left One great cause of failure is lack of concentration. Quote Right
Quote Left Holidays are in no sense an alternative to the congestion and bustle of cities and work. Quite the contrary. People look to escape into an intensification of the conditions of ordinary life, into a deliberate aggravation of those conditions: further from nature, nearer to artifice, to abstraction, to total pollution, to well above average levels of stress, pressure, concentration and monotony -- this is the ideal of popular entertainment. No one is interested in overcoming alienation; the point is to plunge into it to the point of ecstasy. That is what holidays are for. Quote Right
Quote Left A person who is gifted sees the essential point and leaves the rest as surplus. Quote Right
Quote Left I want the concentration and the romance, and the worlds all glued together, fused, glowing: have no time to waste any more on prose. Quote Right
Quote Left We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances - to choose one's own way. Quote Right
Quote Left A crisis does not always appear to a policymaker as a series of dramatic events. Usually it imposes itself as an exhausting agenda of petty chores demanding both concentration and endurance. Quote Right

Quote Left Teens think listening to music helps them concentrate. It doesn't. It relieves them of the boredom that concentration on homework induces. Quote Right
Quote Left Be patient. The path of self-discipline that leads to God-realization is not an easy path: obstacles and sufferings are on the path; the latter you must bear, and the former overcome -- all by His help. His help comes only through concentration. Repetition of God's name helps concentration. Quote Right
Quote Left The concentration and dedication- the intangibles are the deciding factors between who won and who lost. Quote Right
Quote Left The academic community has in it the biggest concentration of alarmists, cranks and extremists this side of the giggle house. Quote Right
Quote Left The five essential entrepreneurial skills for success: Concentration, Discrimination, Organization, Innovation and Communication Quote Right
Quote Left Multitudes of people, drifting aimlessly to and fro without a set purpose, deny themselves such fulfillment of their capacities, and the satisfying happiness which attends it. They are not wicked, they are only shallow. They are not mean or vicious; they simply are empty -- shake them and they would rattle like gourds. They lack range, depth, and conviction. Without purpose their lives ultimately wander into the morass of dissatisfaction. As we harness our abilities to a steady purpose and undertake the long pull toward its accomplishment, rich compensations reward us. A sense of purpose simplifies life and therefore concentrates our abilities; and concentration adds power. Quote Right
Quote Left I trained like an animal, but the thing is focus and concentration. When the bell rings it's like when the little red light goes on over the camera. And I can usually nail my lines on the first or second take because I'm right there. Quote Right
Quote Left We must believe that emotion recollected in tranquillity is an inexact formula. For it is neither emotion, nor recollection, nor without distortion of meaning, tranquillity. It is a concentration, and a new thing resulting from the concentration of a very great number of experiences which to the practical and active person would not seem to be experiences at all; it is a concentration which does not happen consciously or of deliberation. These experiences are not recollected and they finally unite in an atmosphere which is tranquil only in that it is a passive attending upon the event. Quote Right
Quote Left Concentration is the secret of strength Quote Right
Quote Left There is no true expertise in the humanities without knowing all of the humanities. Art is a vast, ancient interconnected web-work, a fabricated tradition. Over-concentration on any one point is a distortion. Quote Right
Quote Left Success is focusing the full power of all you are one what you have a burning desire to achieve. Quote Right
Quote Left Concentration is my motto - first honesty, then industry, then concentration. Quote Right
Quote Left The ability to concentrate and to use time well is everything. Quote Right
Quote Left The jack-of-all-trades seldom is good at any. Concentrate all of your efforts on one definite chief aim. Quote Right
Quote Left Before water generates steam, it must register 212 of heat; 200 will not do it. The water must boil to generate enough steam to move an engine. Lukewarm water will not run anything. Lukewarmness will not generate life's work. Quote Right
Quote Left A man should conceive of a legitimate purpose in his heart, and set out to accomplish it. He should make this purpose the centralizing point of his thoughts. It may take the form of a spiritual ideal, or it may be a worldly object, according to his nature at the time being; but whichever it is, he should steadily focus his thought forces upon the object which he has set before him. He should make this purpose his supreme duty, and should devote himself to its attainment, not allowing his thoughts to wander away into ephemeral fancies, longings, and imaginings. This is the royal road to self-control and true concentration of thought. Even if he fails again and again to accomplish his purpose (as he necessarily must until weakness is overcome), the strength of character gained will be the measure of his true success, and this will form a new starting point for future power and triumph. Quote Right
Quote Left No fine work can be done without concentration and self-sacrifice and toil and doubt. Quote Right
Quote Left The more intensely we feel about an idea or a goal, the more assuredly the idea, buried deep in our subconscious, will direct us along the path to its fulfillment. Quote Right
Quote Left It's shocking how little there is to do with tennis when you're just thinking about nothing except winning every point. Quote Right

Quote Left ONE OF MAN'S GREATEST CHALLENGES IS TO BE IN HARMONY WITH HIMSELF AND TO LISTEN TO HIS INNER VOICE. THIS REQUIRES CONCENTRATION AND DETERMINATION, ESPECIALLY AS WE ARE CONSTANTLY DISTRACTED. WHO HAS THIS INNER MASTERY, HAS A CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF THE OUTER WORLD. Quote Right
