Three phases of work / doctrine, Three kinds of men – Quotable quotes

Each work has to pass through these stages—ridicule, opposition, and then acceptance. Those who think ahead of their time are sure to be misunderstood.

– Swami Vivekananda

What reminded me of this quote was,

Earlier in the day Prakash showed me another funny one along similar lines from "The Software Project Manager’s Bridge to Agility" , "Chapter 14. How Will I Work with Other Teams Who Aren’t Agile?"

The new one is funny & very relevant today 🙂

"A new doctrine goes through three stages. It is attacked and declared absurd; then it is admitted as true and obvious but insignificant. Finally, its true importance is recognized and its adversaries claim the honor of having discovered it."

—William James

Update: Another funny quote which Prakash had shared earlier. 

“There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.” – Will Rogers
