Most of the mistakes in thinking are inadequacies of perception rather than mistakes of logic.
— Edward De Bono

Man finds nothing so intolerable as to be in a state of complete rest, without passions, without occupation, without diversion, without effort. Then he feels his nullity, loneliness, inadequacy, dependence, helplessness, emptiness.
Blaise Pascal inadequacies quote

Liberalism, above all, means emancipation -- emancipation from one's fears, his inadequacies, from prejudice, from discrimination... from poverty.
— Hubert Humphrey

Power corrupts the few, while weakness corrupts the many. The resentment of the weak does not spring from any injustice done to them but from the sense of their inadequacy and impotence. They hate not wickedness but weakness. When it is in their power to do so, the weak destroy weakness wherever they see it.
— Eric Hoffer

The volatile truth of our words should continually betray the inadequacy of the residual statement.
— inadequacies quotation by Henry David Thoreau
