This is a page of quotes that we have come across in our work that we find inspiring, especially in the context of effective knowledge management and the wise application of knowledge. We give due author credit, where known, but some quotes are unknown to us, but very good.

The list of quotes will grow by the week from January 2010, one by one,so please keep informed. We hope you will also find some inspiration and some deeper insights. Let's start:

2. Technology is now empowering the young people around the world to question everything that we thought to be true...GBG University

1. Wisdom begins with the dawn of reason, an understanding of the knowledge and principles whereby we may know the true meaning of things.

2. Pure learning is of no use unless it is backed by action. Otherwise we create dreamers rather than men and women of purposeful achievement.

2."Imagination is more important than knowledge, for knowledge is limited while imagination embraces the entire world." Albert Einstein

A convention is a set of agreed , stipulated, or generally accepted standards , norms , social norms , or criteria , often taking the form of a custom .

Certain types of rules or customs may become law and regulatory legislation may be introduced to formalize or enforce the convention (for example, laws that define on which side of the road vehicles must be driven). In a social context , a convention may retain the character of an "unwritten law" of custom (for example, the manner in which people greet each other, such as by shaking each other's hands).

In physical sciences , numerical values (such as constants, quantities, or scales of measurement) are called conventional if they do not represent a measured property of nature, but originate in a convention, for example an average of many measurements, agreed between the scientists working with these values.

The nature of conventions has raised long-lasting philosophical discussion. Quine , Davidson , and David Lewis published influential writings on the subject. Lewis's account of convention received an extended critique in Margaret Gilbert 's On Social Facts (1989), where an alternative account is offered. Another view of convention comes from Ruth Millikan 's Language: A Biological Model (2005), once more against Lewis. [ example needed ]

According to David Kalupahana, The Buddha described conventions—whether linguistic, social, political, moral, ethical, or even religious—as arising dependent on specific conditions. According to his paradigm, when conventions are considered absolute realities, they contribute to dogmatism, which in turn leads to conflict. This does not mean that conventions should be absolutely ignored as unreal and therefore useless. Instead, according to Buddhist thought, a wise person adopts a middle way without holding conventions to be ultimate or ignoring them when they are fruitful. [2]

In sociology a social rule refers to any social convention commonly adhered to in a society . These rules are not written in law or otherwise formalized. In social constructionism there is a great focus on social rules. It is argued that these rules are socially constructed, that these rules act upon every member of a society, but at the same time, are re-produced by the individuals.
