Day 2890: Insights

Here are some insightful quotes about insights:

“When you want wisdom and insight as badly as you want to breathe, it is then you shall have it.” — Socrates

“Knowing many things doesn’t teach insight.” — Heraclitus

“A moment’s insight is sometimes worth a life’s experience.” — Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.

“We are surrounded by data, but starved for insights.” — Jay Baer

“To understand another human being you must gain some insight into the condition that made him what he is.” — Margaret Bourke-White

“Insight occurs when, and to the degree that, one knows oneself.” — Andrew Schneider

“Great insight comes from seeing something as odd and finding out why.” — Philip Kotler

“When you let go, you lose pain and gain insight.” — Alexandra Stoddard

“The best vision is insight.” — Malcolm Forbes

“You cannot transmit wisdom and insight to another person. The seed is already there. A good teacher touches the seed, allowing it to wake up, to sprout, and to grow.” — Thich Nhat Hahn

“Discovery is the journey; insight is the destination.” — Gary Hamel

“Do not let anyone, of any sex, tell you that your intuitions and insights, your wisdom and your understandings, are somehow second-rate and not to be trusted.” Neale Donald Walsch

Yesterday, I trusted my insights enough to share this on Twitter:

One person’s platitude might be another person’s revelation, and vice versa.

Are there insights in any of these images?

Here’s Julien Marchal (who has many insights on YouTube) with “Insight XX.”

Feel free to share any insights in a comment below.

Thanks to all whose insights help me create this daily blog, including YOU!

  1. Localized insights just for you, Ann:
    In August 1972 “The Boston Globe” published a report by a journalist who visited women’s restrooms in the Boston area and examined the graffiti. She found the following:

    “To be is to do . . . John Stuart Mill”
    “To do is to be . . . William James”
    “Do be do be do . . . Frank Sinatra”

  2. I will think on these things today and hope a smidgeon of insight surfaces. Soon.

  3. I love Julien Marchal’s insight!

  4. I see a lot of insights in the pictures you share and yet I struggle with my own insights. The words of Heraclitus hit close to the mark for me because I often feel I can rattle off a lot of obscure and interesting facts but I have a hard time offering up anything really insightful about them, or about anything. Ironically that is in itself an insight and maybe I should trust Thich Nhat Hahn that the seed has been touched.

    Obviously the post with United we stand divided we fall has insight, but for me in particular, the first picture of the bird flying freely in the sky has a lot of insight.

  6. the license plate says it all, instant insight. my 3 words for my 18year old self – hope never dies.

  7. I’m not feeling very insightful these days, Ann, so may I borrow some of yours? I’ll take good care of it! 🙂

    • You may not be feeling insightful, Debra, but you definitely are insightful, and if you trust my insight, you know I’m right about that too! ❤

  8. I got my greatest insight from Nature.

  9. What do you make of all those numbers WordPress gives you, Ann? I don’t know if I understand them, but from my reading WordPress seems unaware of some of your posts, since your total # of posts are fewer than the # of days you have posted, which can be found in your post title.

    I am curious to get insight into your photos of the small dog in the red shirt.

    • Yes, yes, yes, Maureen, and seeing those numbers yesterday caused me to check back into my posts. I found that I had mis-numbered one a long time ago and have spent a lot of time since then fixing this. Now all is well and the numbers should align. As far as the dog is concerned, I take photos of pugs and send them to my friend Jenn, who has three pugs. Thank you, as always, for your insights.

  10. Wow, you are really at the top of your game.
    I have started my blog last month and its going well so far.
    Its about helping content creaters make money online doing what they love.

  11. Ahh…a post on the heart of the matter. (๑ Ỡ ◡͐ Ỡ๑)ノ♡
