„When you understand persuasion … the truth is not as useful as it should be …“

—  Scott Adams
Context: When you understand persuasion... the truth is not as useful as it should be... (14:43 of 2:17:44)

„Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.“

—  Scott Adams
Context: Normal people don't understand this concept; they believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet. The Dilbert Principle (1996), p. 174;

„I wake up every morning disappointed that I have to wear pants and walk. Imagination has a way of breeding disappointment.“

—  Scott Adams
Context: Years later, when "Dilbert" was in thousands of newspapers, people often asked me if I ever imagined being so lucky. I usually said no, because that's the answer people expected. The truth is that I imagined every bit of good fortune that has come my way. But in my imagination I also invented a belt that would allow me to fly and had special permission from Congress to urinate like a bird wherever I wanted. I wake up every morning disappointed that I have to wear pants and walk. Imagination has a way of breeding disappointment.

„These days it seems like any idiot with a laptop computer can churn out a business book and make a few bucks. That's certainly what I'm hoping.“

—  Scott Adams
Context: These days it seems like any idiot with a laptop computer can churn out a business book and make a few bucks. That's certainly what I'm hoping. It would be a real letdown if the trend changed before this masterpiece goes to print. The Dilbert Principle (1995)

„What are the odds that you are the first generation of humans who will understand reality?“

—  Scott Adams
Context: Every generation of humans believed it had all the answers it needed, except for a few mysteries they assumed would be solved at any moment. And they all believed their ancestors were simplistic and deluded. What are the odds that you are the first generation of humans who will understand reality? The Avatar, from God's Debris : A Thought Experiment (2001)

„If an economist uses a complicated model to predict just about anything, you can ignore it.“

—  Scott Adams
Context: If an economist uses a complicated model to predict just about anything, you can ignore it. By analogy, a doctor can’t tell you the exact date of your death in 50 years. But if a doctor tells you to eat less and exercise more, that’s good advice even if you later get hit by a bus. Along those same lines, economists can give useful general advice on the economy, even if you know there will be surprises. Still, be skeptical.
