Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. – Albert Einstein

And of course, the brain is not responsible for any of the sensations at all. The correct view is that the seat and source of sensation is the region of the heart. – Aristoteles

 The seat of the soul and the control of voluntary movement-in fact, of nervous functions in general,-are to be sought in the heart. The brain is an organ of minor importance. – Aristoteles

Your brain has an in-built mechanism for finding patterns you’ve programmed because of where you’ve put your attention. Solutions, innovations, and success come not from greater intelligence or creativity but from what we notice because of where we point those attributes. – David Allen

The brain is a tissue. It is a complicated, intricately woven tissue, like nothing else we know of in the universe, but it is composed of cells, as any tissue is. They are, to be sure, highly specialized cells, but they function according to the laws that govern any other cells. Their electrical and chemical signals can be detected, recorded and interpreted and their chemicals can be identified; the connections that constitute the brain’s woven feltwork can be mapped. In short, the brain can be studied, just as the kidney can. – David Hubel

To think is to practice brain chemistry – Deepak Chopra

Because we do not understand the brain very well we are constantly tempted to use the latest technology as a model for trying to understand it. In my childhood we were always assured that the brain was a telephone switchboard. (‘What else could it be?’) I was amused to see that Sherrington, the great British neuroscientist, thought that the brain worked like a telegraph system. Freud often compared the brain to hydraulic and electro-magnetic systems. Leibniz compared it to a mill, and I am told some of the ancient Greeks thought the brain functions like a catapult. At present, obviously, the metaphor is the digital computer. – John R. Searle

In fear, the brain starves the heart of its bravest blood. – Kall

The brain gives the heart its sight. The heart gives the brain its vision. – Kall

The heart holds answers the brain refuses to see. – Kall

Over de auteur

Na bijna 20 jaar in de wereld van marketing, communicatie, marktonderzoek en de organisatie van bijeenkomsten, stapte Theo Braam over naar de arbowereld, een kleine drie jaar later gevolgd door een duik in de wereld van de woningbouwcorporaties. Hier houdt hij zich bezig met bewoners en leefbaarheid in wijken. Daarbij ligt de focus vooral op wijkcultuur en het (re)activeren van de betrokkenheid van bewoners. Naast deze werkzaamheden runt hij sinds 2000 zijn eigen bedrijf Eyeopener onderzoek & organisatie. In dat zelfde jaar is hij ook gestart met het opzetten van de website Mens Centraal in Organisaties. Een initiatief dat in mei 2007 werd gevolgd door BrainQuest.
