It is coming to the end of a year: a time to reflect on what has past and to consider the possibilities offered by the future.  With that in mind, I offer some words of wisdom which may spark a thought about finding new ideas and about implementing them.

“The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones.”  (J.M. Keynes)

“Proof may be no more than a lack of imagination.”  (Edward de Bono, De Bono’s Thinking Course, p. 27).

“It is a rare mind indeed that can render the hitherto non-existent blindingly obvious. The cry ‘I could have thought of that’ is a very popular and misleading one, for the fact is that they didn’t, and a very significant and revealing fact it is too.”  (Douglas Adams)

“In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.  In practice, there is.”  (various sources including Yogi Berra and Albert Einstein)
