posters help many areas of development..

Words are very powerful. Especially when we see them repeatedly, as happens on posters.

Memorable quotes and sayings can help us to change the way with feel and think.

Positive sayings assist training and development, learning, group and team building, and personal growth in others.

Posters can help establish an ethical positive caring culture in a workplace, in training centres, and schools and colleges.

They can be used to create and confirm standards and expectations, for young people especially.

Funny posters also help lift morale and create talking points in businesses, organizations and offices.

Posters with famous positive quotes and sayings are inspirational and motivational for staff and customers, and help to lift beliefs, values, expectations and reputations.

Humour helps to bring humanity and fun to offices and work and educational situations. That said, a poster that is funny to you might not be funny to someone else, so use your judgement. Use posters that are appropriate for your audience.

This poster contains the inspirational quote:

my symphony

"To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never. In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden, and unconscious grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony."

(Known as My Symphony, these uplifting words were written by William Henry Channing, 1810-84, an American Christian-socialist clergyman, writer, philosopher, and Chaplain of the US House of Representatives.)

This poster contains the inspirational quote:

"What we have got is whole generations of people helping children to pass exams. But to really fire children's imaginations you need teachers who don't give them answers, but give them questions. There's a dictum in primary education: when a child asks a really good question, don't answer it. Give them the information to work it out, so they can think: 'By God, I've got it!' - That's how the brain works."

(John Abbott, educationalist and writer. The quote, during Abbot's presidency of the 21st Century Learning Initiative, was aimed at children's education, but the principle applies equally to adult learning and development.)

This poster contains the inspirational quote:

"Any fact facing us, however difficult, even seemingly hopeless, is not so important as our attitude towards that fact. How you think about a fact may defeat you before you ever do anything about it. You may permit a fact to overwhelm you mentally before you deal with it actually. On the other hand, a confident and optimistic thought pattern can overcome or modify the fact altogether."

(Norman Vincent Peale, 1898-1993, author and protestant minister, from his 1953 book, The Power of Positive Thinking.)

This poster contains the inspirational quote:

"No man is an island, entirely of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of your own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee."

(John Donne, 1572-1631, English poet, from Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions, Meditation XVII, written in 1624, adapted above into more modern language from the original prose: "No man is an Iland, intire of it selfe; every man is a peece of the Continent, a part of the maine; if a Clod bee washed away by the Sea, Europe is the lesse, as well as if a Promontorie were, as well as if a Mannor of thy friends or of thine owne were; any mans death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankinde; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.")

This poster contains the inspirational quote:

"This is about helping children become themselves. What is a school if it isn't helping people find what they want to do? I don't just mean careers. I mean teaching how to sing, dance, paint, act, write poetry, play tennis, play the guitar. We'd be a better, more harmonious society if people had these interests developed when they were young. But they don't. That's a cause of depression. And the things I'm talking about: children need them here (in school), but the more deprived the background, the less the infrastructure at home, the greater the need. If schools aren't going to do these things, who is?"

(Anthony Seldon, writer, educationist, school head, and advocate of developing young people's personal potential. From an interview published in the Guardian newspaper, 27 May 2007. Just as schools must improve the way they develop young people, so business and employers must align better with the needs of adults. See Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligence theory and Erik Erikson's life-stages theory - both featured on the Businessballs website - as they relate to developing personal value, belief and purpose.)

the glass half-full/half-empty quotes

These posters feature content from the ongoing 'Glass half-full/half-empty' debate, which is routinely extended by visitor contributions. The 'Glass half-full...' item first appeared on the amusing quotes, rules, and maxims webpage.

Featured extracts (on the pdf posters), thanks: P Deer, C Trafford, J Benad, R Wishin, B Langley, C Bacon, D Spira, J Cooper, M Lemma, J Crawshaw, J Crowthers, R Stalenberg, James, GGC, R Huff, H Arora, Rosalie, D Thompson, W Snethlage, P Keogh, S Ainscough, S Billbess, whose collective creative genius is greatly appreciated.

If you can extend the debate as to whether the glass is half-full, half-empty, in some other state, or in a different space/time continuum altogether, feel free to send your ideas via the Businessballs website. The world needs to know.

This poster includes, among others, the following quotes:

"The project manager says the glass is twice as big as it needs to be."

"The school teacher says it's not about whether the glass is half empty or half full, it's whether there is something in the glass at all."

The 'I Am' quote was first published on the self-belief webpage, written as part of the introduction to that item and first published on this website in 2002.

I had not thought to include it here on a poster until a website visitor S Boyd suggested it during 2010, which I greatly appreciated.
