1127 – “Expertise isn’t about being consistently right. It’s about becoming decreasingly wrong. A hallmark of understanding is the ability to rule out inaccurate theories and flawed evidence, and thereby move closer to the truth. Learning is the art of discarding mistaken ideas.”

-Adam Grant

1126 – Life Lesson from Herman Munster

“The lesson I want you to learn is it doesn’t matter what you look like. You can be tall or short or fat or thin or ugly or handsome, like your father, or you can be black or yellow or white – it doesn’t matter – what does matter is the size of your heart and the strength of your character.”

-Herman Munster (Played by Fred Gwynne) in The Munsters

Taking a Break!

Hello, after several years I have finally reduced the backlog of quotes I had down to zero, so I have decided that I am going to take a break from posting new quotes. Together we have reached 1124 unique quotes, with a handful of nearly identical double quotes. I hope that you have enjoyed this blog and in the future I hope to again begin posting quotes.
For the time being I may go back through an clean up some things, like misspelled tags, convert dubious attributions to anonymous quotes, etc. Thank you for following 1000 Quotes and, hopefully, I will begin posting again soon.

1123 – “I’m just so proud of all of you who have grown up with us, and I know how tough it is some days to look with hope and confidence on the months and years ahead. But I would like to tell you what I often told you when you were much younger. I like you just the way you are.”

1122 – Walt Whitman on the Greatest Country

“The greatest country, the richest country, is not that which has the most capitalists, monopolists, immense grabbings, vast fortunes, with its sad, sad soil of extreme, degrading, damning poverty, but the land in which there are the most homesteads, freeholds – where wealth does not show such contrasts high and low, where all men have enough – a modest living – and no man is made possessor beyond the sane and beautiful necessities.”

-Walt Whitman
