Thomas J. Watson (IBM 创办人)


“We must study through reading, listening, discussing, observing and thinking. We must not neglect any one of those ways of study. The trouble with most of us is that we fall down on the latter – thinking – because it’s hard work for people to think… All of the problems of the world could be settled easily if men were only willing to think.”

— Thomas J. Watson, Founder of IBM

「我们必需透过阅读、聆听、讨论、观察及思考来学习,我们绝不能忽视那些学习方法中的任何一种。我们大多数人的问题是没有做到后者 – 思考 – 因为思考对人们来说是件困难的工作… 世界上所有的问题都可以轻易的被解决,只要人们愿意思考。」– 汤玛斯‧华生 (IBM 创办人)
