Top Flow Theory Quotes

Flow Theory Quotes By Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Theory of optimal experience based on the concept of flow - the state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter; the experience itself is so enjoyable that people will do it even at great cost, for the sheer sake of doing it. — Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Flow Theory Quotes By Stephen Fry

A film star is a kind of public monument, and everyone's staring at them, and they've kind of got railings around them, and they're rather miserable most of the time. — Stephen Fry

Flow Theory Quotes By Anatol Rapoport

The "flow of information" through human communication channels is enormous. So far no theory exists, to our knowledge, which attributes any sort of unambiguous measure to this "flow". — Anatol Rapoport

Flow Theory Quotes By Bill Vaughan

Earlier research has shown that poor blood flow can damage these parts of the brain. So one theory is that exercise may prevent damage and might even help repair these areas by increasing blood flow. — Bill Vaughan

Flow Theory Quotes By Vine Deloria Jr.

As time passed I became an avid reader of popular scientific books, wanting to know as much as I could about the world in which I lived. Gradually I began to see a pattern of nonsense in much scientific writing. Scientific explanations given regarding the origins or functioning of various phenomena simply didn't make sense. — Vine Deloria Jr.

Flow Theory Quotes By Mary E. Pearson

I decide that sometimes definitions are wrong. Even if they're written in a dictionary. Identities aren't always separate and distinct. Sometimes they ARE wrapped up with others. Sometimes, for a few minutes, maybe they can even be shared. And if I am ever fortunate enough to return to Mr. Bender's garden, I wonder if the birds will see that piece of him that is wrapped up in me. — Mary E. Pearson

Flow Theory Quotes By Michio Kaku

Embarrassingly enough, at present there is no theory explaining the properties of these high-temperature superconductors. In fact, a Nobel Prize is awaiting the enterprising physicist who can explain how high-temperature superconductors work. (These high-temperature superconductors are made of atoms arranged in distinctive layers. Many physicists theorize that this layering of the ceramic material makes it possible for electrons to flow freely within each layer, creating a superconductor. But precisely how this is done is still a mystery.) — Michio Kaku

Flow Theory Quotes By Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

But to change all existence into a flow experience, it is not sufficient to learn merely how to control moment-by-moment states of consciousness. It is also necessary to have an overall context of goals for the events of everyday life to make senseTo create harmony in whatever one does is the last task that the flow theory presents to whose who wish to attain optimal experience; it is a task that involves transforming the entirety of life into a single flow activity, with unified goals that provide constant purpose. — Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Flow Theory Quotes By John Updike

What I'm going to do is pry every stinking tag off these f.ing chairs and make a f.ing collar and throw that cat right in Connor's puked-up face. Pale turd. — John Updike

Flow Theory Quotes By George Eliot

Nature has the deep cunning which hides itself under the appearance of openness, so that simple people think they can see through her quite well, and all the while she is secretly preparing a refutation of their confident prophecies. — George Eliot

Flow Theory Quotes By Kenichi Ohmae

Rowing harder doesn't help if the boat is headed in the wrong direction. — Kenichi Ohmae

Flow Theory Quotes By Jodi Lynn Anderson

So many lights you'd think we were living in a constellation — Jodi Lynn Anderson

Flow Theory Quotes By W.B.Yeats

So like a bit of stone I lie
Under a broken tree.
I could recover if I shrieked
My heart's agony
To passing bird, but I am dumb. — W.B.Yeats

Flow Theory Quotes By Margaret Atwood

The trickle-down theory of economics has it that it's good for rich people to get even richer because some of their wealth will trickle own, through their no doubt lavish spending, upon those who stand below them on the economic ladder. Notice that the metaphor is not that of a gushing waterfall but of a leaking tap: even the most optimistic endorsers of this concept do not picture very much real flow, as their language reveals pg. 102. — Margaret Atwood

Flow Theory Quotes By Harvey Milk

The fact is that more people have been slaughtered in the name of religion than for any other single reason. That, that my friends, that is true perversion! — Harvey Milk

Flow Theory Quotes By Billy Joel

It's really hard to make a living as a musician. It's almost impossible. — Billy Joel

Flow Theory Quotes By Abdulazeez Henry Musa

Persistently worrying yourself over what life throws at you never makes it better but deters you from your set goals in life. — Abdulazeez Henry Musa

Flow Theory Quotes By Elizabeth A. Johnson

That all species are related in the flow of life and death is a keystone of evolutionary theory. The grandeur displayed in this view of life is ecological in character. — Elizabeth A. Johnson

Flow Theory Quotes By James Gleick

The leap from maps to fluid flow seemed so great that even those most responsible sometimes felt it was like a dream. How nature could tie such complexity to such simplicity was far from obvious. "You have to regard it as a kind of miracle, not like the usual connection between theory and experiment," Jerry Gollub said. Within a few years, the miracle was being repeated again and again in a vast bestiary of laboratory systems: bigger fluid cells with water and mercury, electronic oscillators, lasers, even chemical reactions. Theorists adapted Feigenbaum's techiniques and found other mathematical routes to chaos, cousins of period-doubling: such patterns as intermittency and quasiperiodicity. These, too, proved universal in theory and experiment. — James Gleick
