Top Best Ted Talks Quotes

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Ted Rall

Hail, Columbia! Home of the six inch cockroach and the stadium-sized lecture hall. A reservation for rich white people guarded by poor brown people in a sea of urban decay. Where nobody on the faculty has ever spent ten minutes in the freshman dorm, but everybody talks about humanism and compassion. They teach you that military people are scum, trash, the lowest of the low
and then they assign Homer's ILIAD just to develop your sense of irony. Where else can you see three suicides a month dismissed as slightly above average, but better than Smith or Brown? — Ted Rall

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Sherry Turkle

Connecting in sips may work for gathering discreet bits of information, they may work for saying, "I'm thinking about you," or even for saying, "I love you," but they don't really work for learning about each other, for really coming to know and understand each other. And we use conversations with each other to learn how to have conversations with ourselves. So a flight from conversation can really matter because it can compromise our capacity for self-reflection. For kids growing up, that skill is the bedrock of development. — Sherry Turkle

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Philip G. Zimbardo

To be a hero you have to learn to be a deviant
because you're always going against the conformity of the group. — Philip G. Zimbardo

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Elizabeth Gilbert

Your home is whatever in this world you love more than you love yourself. — Elizabeth Gilbert

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Steven Pinker

Reason is overrated. Many pundits have argued that a good heart and steadfast moral clarity are superior to triangulations of overeducated policy wonks, like the best and brightest and that dragged us into the quagmire of Vietnam. And wasn't it reason that gave us the means to despoil the planet and threaten our species with weapons of mass destruction? In this way of thinking, it's character and conscience, not cold-hearted calculation, that will save us. Besides, a human being is not a brain on a stick. My fellow psychologists have shown that we're led by our bodies and our emotions and use our puny powers of reason merely to rationalize our gut feelings after the fact — Steven Pinker

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Chris Anderson

We live in an era where the best way to make a dent on the world may no longer be to write a letter to the editor or publish a book. It may be simply to stand up and say something ... because both the words and the passion with which they are delivered can now spread across the world at warp speed. — Chris Anderson

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Wade Boggs

One guy that I wish was here right now, Ted Williams, helped me so much, our long talks, not about hitting but about fishing, one of Ted's passions, and I wish he was here today to share this with me because I owe so much to Ted Williams. — Wade Boggs

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Michael Dickinson

I'm obsessed with insects, particularly insect flight. I think the evolution of insect flight is perhaps one of the most important events in the history of life. Without insects, there'd be no flowering plants. Without flowering plants, there would be no clever, fruit-eating primates giving TED Talks. — Michael Dickinson

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Ken Robinson

Creativity is as important as literacy — Ken Robinson

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Damon Lindelof

I look at myself more as a storyteller than a screenwriter, as pretentious as that may sound, but that's what really attracts me to TED Talks. For me, the really effective ones are being presented by expert storytellers. — Damon Lindelof

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Steven Pinker

Can reason lead us in directions that are good or decent or moral? After all, you pointed out that reason is just a means to an end, and the end depends on the reasoner's passions. Reason can lay out a road map to peace and harmony if the reasoner wants peace and harmony, but it can also lay out a road map to conflict and strife if the reasoner delights in conflict and strife. Can reason force the reasoner to want less cruelty and waste? — Steven Pinker

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Damon Lindelof

I feel like great TED Talks are ones that are a little bit subject to interpretation, that do provoke further conversation - and potentially controversy. — Damon Lindelof

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Jose Gonzalez

I'm a very slow reader - I read maybe three or four books a year - so I listen to podcasts and the occasional audiobook, and I watch TED talks. — Jose Gonzalez

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Ted Koppel

The problem is everybody is worrying about explosive vests and people with AK-47s. We live in a day and age when someone sitting in Somalia or in Chile or in Perth, Australia, can be sitting there with a laptop and can theoretically take down one of our power grids or part of our infrastructure and do infinitely more damage. Nobody talks about that. It's not a question of who comes into the United States. We're way past that. — Ted Koppel

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Ken Robinson

We stigmatize mistakes. And we're now running national educational systems where mistakes are the worst thing you can make
and the result is that we are educating people out of their creative capacities. — Ken Robinson

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Jonathan Franzen

The tone of the new ones, in their TED Talks, in PowerPointed product launches, in testimony to parliaments and congresses, in utopianly titled books, was a smarmy syrup of convenient conviction and personal surrender that he remembered well from the Republic. He — Jonathan Franzen

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Brene Brown

Someone asked me very recently why I have 8 million views on TED - "your work resonates, what are you doing?" What I think my contribution is, what I do well, is I name experiences that are very universal that no one really talks about. That's the researcher in me; that's really part of being a grounded theory researcher - putting names to concepts and experiences that people have. That's the researcher part. — Brene Brown

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Andrew Stanton

Story telling is joke telling. — Andrew Stanton

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Cameron Russell

Here are some tips to help you make your presentation slide: It would be recommended to use images and photos. If you would watch TED-style talks, most of the speakers use images to convey a point. — Jacob Andrews

Best Ted Talks Quotes By Ted Yoho

Cliff Stearns talks about what he did to Planned Parenthood, making Solyndra a household name - why didn't he do this sooner? Why didn't he see it coming? It's the oversight committee, not the hindsight committee. — Ted Yoho
