I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude. -- Thoreau
 
I like taking public transport because I can read and work on the train or bus. The journeys give me a limited time to do something focused.

Unfortunately, no matter how efficient public transport might get, it suffers from one unavoidable flaw. It is public and often attracts the loud and boorish.

That is why I think that one of the best modern inventions is noise-cancelling headphones. These marvels of human ingenuity are expensive, but they help create “companionable solitude” by some measure. That peace amid the din is what enables me to think and work.

Note: I am not endorsing the brand of headphones in the photo. The image was the best one I could find under CC. I use a different brand anyway.

Doing things differently does not always mean doing things better.  But doing things better always means doing things differently. -- Hank McKinnell (Former CEO of Pfizer)

Anyone who has a hand in designing and managing systemic change should relate to this. They should also be able to provide insights on what needs to emerge in between the lines. That is why the quote is a great conversation starter on topics like innovation or leadership.

As is my practice from this quotable quotes series, I share the sources with which I made the image quote.

The words are courtesy of this tweet.

The original photo was shared under Creative Commons.
 

I have caught up with my backlog of image quotes. This is the last one I prepared way in advance.
 

I started with Haiku Deck and moved to Google Slides as the latter afforded more precise text placements.

My Google Slide-based quotes are in this online album. The ones in Haiku Deck are here.

I have shared the image quotes under CC license because the images were originally under a CC license.
 

I am not sure if I will make more even though I still have a collection of unused quotes.

I am not sure if I can stop myself either.

Good grades may help you look smart. Good questions help you get smart.

This is not one of my better image quotes. It has been sitting in a Google Slide deck for a while. But the words are more important than the image.

I got the quote partly off a tweet from my Twitter stream a while ago. Unfortunately, I did not take note of the URL.

But I did keep track of the original CC-licensed image.
 

This Sunday’s quote is courtesy of this tweet:

Tomorrow's educational progress cannot be determined by yesterday's 'successful' performance.

The quote is another way of saying that we cannot rest on our laurels.

If we do, we will get a bum rash and that will affect the way we walk. That in turn will prevent us from moving forward as well as we should. That is not implied in the quote and is something I visualise.

Yesterday’s practice was to just use the photo. Today’s is to give credit where it is due. The original image was a CC-licensed photo.

This is something quote-worthy for parents and teachers alike.

To leave a better planet for our kids, we need to leave better kids for our planet..

This is a variation of a Googleable quote on the Internet.

What might be less easy to find is the wonderful photo shared under Creative Commons. I found it with the help of ImageCodr.
 

Here is another quotable quote left over from 2015.

Wisdom is learning to let go when you want to hang on. Courage is learning to hang on when you want to let go.

It was a tweet that entered my stream of consciousness late last year.

It does not take any courage to attribute the CC-licensed image. There is much wisdom in doing so.
