Prof. W. Tim G. Richardson
The following "quotable quotes" are, mostly, originally created by me (T.R.) and have been used by me in speeches, articles and various course curriculum.
While some other business consultants and academics might have coined and used similarly meaning phrases, as far as was checked, the specific wording below is original and comes from my experiences in business and teaching.
solving problems, your only limit is your imagination"
No matter how difficult something might be, and no matter how constrained your resources - if you think really hard and use your imagination, in many cases, you can indeed come up with a reasonable solution.
"Teachers will not be replaced by the Internet, they will be replaced by Teachers using the Internet"
"Professors will not be replaced by web pages, they will be replaced by Professors who know how to effectively use web pages"
- TR coined this phrase after hearing a similar one used by Dr. Selia Karsten - "Teachers will not be replaced by computers, they will be replaced by teachers using computers" - Dr. Karsten noted that Clara Yu, vice president for languages and director of the language schools at Middlebury College, Vermont is credited with saying "The human teacher will not be replaced by technology, but the human teacher may be replaced by the human teacher who knows how to use technology"
"Professors will not be replaced by web pages .." was used by T.R. at the Ryerson University conference "Teaching, Learning and Technology" November 2003 - it was a pleasure to have Dr. Tim Pychl, of the University of Ottawa, use this quote "Professors will not be replaced by web pages..." in a series of powerpoints he used when giving a speech to several conferences in the first half of 2004
The whole point about teachers being replaced is..."Technology does not replace people - it enables people; it only replaces people when they do not know how to wield it"

It was my pleasure to have Mrs Tan Ching Yee, Chief Executive Officer, Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore use this quote when she was introducing the president of software giant Oracle, Mr. Charles Phillips, at the IDA Distinguished Infocomm Speaker Series, 21 July 2004.

"Quantity versus Quality" (added 2017 Sept 7th)Happiness is not about making a lot of friends
Happiness is achieved through nurturing existing friendships
Success in business is not about scoring contacts
Success in business is about cultivating existing contacts
or as my former student Christine H. said simply "quality>qualtity"
"Capability is not as important as connectivity"Maybe I'm not the first person to come up with something like this phrase, but I have specifically created this particular word arrangement and used it on a number of occasions - not within an IT context, but within a "developing new business" context. Making efforts to know a lot of people is not as fruitful as taking actions which cause a lot of people to know you ... don't spend a lot of time trying to write down notes about contacts you make, instead, concentrate on making sure that when you meet people, you give them a reason to remember you.
To create international harmony, we first must create interest in other cultures. "
To successfully motivate someone, you first have to clearly identify specifically what they want. If they don't know what they want, you can help them by providing information on the choices / opportunities available, which they might not know"
Ralph Waldom Emerson (1803 - 1882) said "The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful...", I would submit that if you are truly "useful" to your family, friends and community you will indeed find happiness in fulfillment.LIFE
"I ride my motorcycle way too fast to worry about cholesterol"
"Great ideas have no value. What you need is the money to go with them"When I was interviewed by Canadian Press for a story about how home-based entrepreneurs are trying to make money online with small businesses, I cautioned that several considerations need to be taken into account, one simple point was that just because you have a great idea ... there is no consequence, unless you have time, money and other resources to see the idea grow to a set of measurable objectives with a realistic goal. One newspaper that carried the story was the Winnipeg Free Press
"Technology helps communication??? It has been splendid at getting the message out, but communication is two way - people have been using communication technology for talking (sending out the message), and not listening and communication cannot happen unless people listen"
other quotes created by others, that I likedThere is too much emphasis on using technology to "broadcast" the message in increasingly sophisticated ways - people are overwhelmed with the "message driven" society - but few people sending out the message are listening. Listening will help the message senders be more effective cause they will understand what messages are being understood and what messages are being ignored.
