Do you have any good ideas?

“The way to get good ideas is to get lots of ideas, and throw the bad ones away” - Dr. Linus Pauling

Arthur C. Clarke says:
"New ideas pass through three periods:

  1. It can't be done.
  2. It probably can be done, but it's not worth doing.
  3. I knew it was a good idea all along!”
“An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea. Ideas are useless unless used."

“The essence of knowledge is, having it, to apply it; not having it, to confess your ignorance.” - Confucius

“Often the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one has better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on one's ideas, to take a calculated risk - and to act.” - Andre Malraux
