Mahatma Gandhi, (attributed)
Indian ascetic & nationalist leader (1869 - 1948)
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950), Man and Superman (1903) "Maxims for Revolutionists"
You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"
George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950), "Back to Methuselah" (1921), part 1, act 1
Don't let fear convince you that you're too weak to have courage. Fear is the opportunity for courage, not the proof of cowardice.
McCain, John (2004, September). In Search of Courage: Finding the Courage Within You. FastCompany, 51-56.
In the search for character and commitment, we must rid ourselves of our inherited, even cherished biases and prejudices. Character, ability and intelligence are not concentrated in one sex over the other, nor in persons with certain accents or in certain races or in persons holding degrees from some universities over others. When we indulge ourselves in such irrational prejudices, we damage ourselves most of all and ultimately assure ourselves of failure in competition with those more open and less biased.
J. Irwin Miller, Chairman of the Board (1951-1977), Cummins Inc. From 1983 letter about diversity at the company.

Publish or Perish...the software
Thanks to Elijah for helping me kill one of those useless hours I have laying around. LOL I want to spread the joy and let all of you kill time - passing out knives - and maybe give you a useful tool for your research as well.
If you haven't checked out Harzing's Publish or Perish I strongly recommend you do so now...if not sooner. This is one of the coolest search tools I've seen, ever. In essence take Web of Science and make it publicly accessible and let it bump up against Google Scholar and you have Publish or Perish.
Like most folks I started out my play time with a vanity search and then a variety of keyword searches, and was rewarded for my efforts. I will sleep better tonight knowing that Bridging the Gap: A Genre Analysis of Weblogs (pdf) is the most cited "blog" paper listed.
Even my solo and first author works are getting pretty good citation. What can I say it's cool to see numbers to actually know someone is using the work. Qualitative has it's place because it's always nice to hear that someone likes the work, but it's very cool to see those citation numbers...hard and cold and quantitative. LOL One of the few places I really really like numbers.
