Famous quotes containing the words abilities, skills and/or basic:

    Our wishes are presentiments of the abilities that lie in us, harbingers of what we will be able to accomplish.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    I have great faith in ‘ordinary parents.’ Who has a child’s welfare more at heart than his ordinary parent? It’s been my experience that when parents are given the skills to be more helpful, not only are they able to use these skills, but they infuse them with a warmth and a style that is uniquely their own.
    Haim Ginott (20th century)

    The man who is admired for the ingenuity of his larceny is almost always rediscovering some earlier form of fraud. The basic forms are all known, have all been practicised. The manners of capitalism improve. The morals may not.
    John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)
