Frases Scott Adams

„These days it seems like any idiot with a laptop computer can churn out a business book and make a few bucks. That's certainly what I'm hoping.“

—  Scott Adams

The Dilbert Principle (1995)
Contexto: These days it seems like any idiot with a laptop computer can churn out a business book and make a few bucks. That's certainly what I'm hoping. It would be a real letdown if the trend changed before this masterpiece goes to print.

„If an economist uses a complicated model to predict just about anything, you can ignore it.“

—  Scott Adams

Press release, 10 September 2008 http://dilbert.com/blog
Contexto: If an economist uses a complicated model to predict just about anything, you can ignore it. By analogy, a doctor can’t tell you the exact date of your death in 50 years. But if a doctor tells you to eat less and exercise more, that’s good advice even if you later get hit by a bus. Along those same lines, economists can give useful general advice on the economy, even if you know there will be surprises. Still, be skeptical.

„When you understand persuasion … the truth is not as useful as it should be …“

—  Scott Adams

[Sam Harris vs. Scott Adams on Trump, YouTube, 19 July 2017, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAVMbuETnX0] (14:43 of 2:17:44)

„The truth is that I imagined every bit of good fortune that has come my way.“

—  Scott Adams

Contexto: Years later, when "Dilbert" was in thousands of newspapers, people often asked me if I ever imagined being so lucky. I usually said no, because that's the answer people expected. The truth is that I imagined every bit of good fortune that has come my way. But in my imagination I also invented a belt that would allow me to fly and had special permission from Congress to urinate like a bird wherever I wanted. I wake up every morning disappointed that I have to wear pants and walk. Imagination has a way of breeding disappointment.

„Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.“

—  Scott Adams

The Dilbert Principle (1996), p. 174;
Contexto: Normal people don't understand this concept; they believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.

„I wake up every morning disappointed that I have to wear pants and walk. Imagination has a way of breeding disappointment.“

„What are the odds that you are the first generation of humans who will understand reality?“

—  Scott Adams

The Avatar, from God's Debris : A Thought Experiment (2001)
Contexto: Every generation of humans believed it had all the answers it needed, except for a few mysteries they assumed would be solved at any moment. And they all believed their ancestors were simplistic and deluded. What are the odds that you are the first generation of humans who will understand reality?

„Life is half delicious yogurt, half crap, and your job is to keep the plastic spoon in the yogurt.“
