Quotes worth recording – Eric Hoffer

Quotes worth recording – Eric Hoffer

Thanks to Sterling, our Vistage Chair for sharing this quote at yesterday’s meeting.  These few lines have a lot to offer. In fact, please share this quote to as many friends as possible.

Think about it. Today, you are equipped to deal with issues and challenges and go after opportunities of today. A few years from now, world would have changed (significantly) and what you have today (eg: skills, knowledge, network etc.) won’t e sufficient to  handle what  the future will unfold for you. Most people will do NOTHING about it as they are students of “Learning on the Go” school.

What does not change is that you have a choice. Investing in yourself is not a one-time thing. You have to do it for the rest of your life.

Enjoy the quote:


“Those who stop learning find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer exists”

I am writing to seek permission to reprint the article details of which are given below.

Title of ICFAI’s Proposed Book “Role of Punishments in Civilised Society” (Book title subject to change after the final review)

Expected Date of Publication: May,2008.

I would like to introduce the ICFAI – The ICFAI (Institute of Chartered Financial Analysts of India) University is a non-profit organization involved, primarily, in imparting quality education in the area of Management and Finance.

We publish around 17 monthly magazines, 42 quarterly journals and 20 books (in a month). The magazines/journals/books are sold at a discount normally ranging from 15% – 50%, to academic institutions/academicians/students. Net realization recovers the cost of editing, printing and distribution. Any money, eventually earned, over and above the costs is included into the publication/academic pool to cater to the educative needs of students and executives.

We request you to grant us permission to reprint the article in print media as well as electronic format of the proposed derivative book having the title “Role of Punishments in Civilised Society” (subject to change, and we will inform you if there is a change in the title.) Please consider our request and grant us permission accordingly.
