ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING, AND ALL OUR FEARS --

The man who created so much of this problem "we" all face (animal and vegetable....), also offer the solution:

"If you think you can or you think you can't, you're right."

                                                            -Henry Ford

Those of you who think we can't, should look at a few famous last words --

"There is no likelihood man can ever tap the power of the atom."

--Robert Millikan, Nobel Prize in Physics, 1923

 

"I think there is a world market for maybe five computers."

--Thomas Watson, Chairman of IBM, 1943



"The concept is interesting and well-formed, but in order to earn better than a 'C', the idea must be feasible."

--A Yale University management professor in response to Fred Smith's paper proposing reliable overnight delivery service (Smith went on to found FedEx).

 

"A cookie store is a bad idea. Besides, the market research report say America likes crispy cookies, not soft and chewy cookies like you make."

--Response to Debbi Fields' idea of starting Mrs. Field's Cookies.

 

WE CAN!!!
