Most of the mistakes in thinking are inadequacies of perception rather than mistakes of logic.
Edward de Bono
The human brain works as a binary computer and can only analyze the exact information-based zeros and ones (or black and white). Our heart is more like a chemical computer that uses fuzzy logic to analyze information that can't be easily defined in zeros and ones.
Black And White

Leonardo da Vinci

Trying to understand the way nature works involves a most terrible test of human reasoning ability.

Richard P. Feynman

Drama starts where logic ends.
It is true that I am not one of those who laugh at utopias. The utopia of today can become the reality of tomorrow. Utopias are conceived by optimistic logic which regards constant social and political progress as the ultimate goal of human endeavor; pessimism would plunge a hopeless mankind into a fresh cataclysm.
Charles Albert Gobat
The more I draw and write, the more I realise that accidents are a necessary part of any creative act, much more so than logic or wisdom. Sometimes a mistake is the only way of arriving at an original concept, and the history of successful inventions is full of mishaps, serendipity and unintended results.
Insanity is often the logic of an accurate mind overtasked.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
The Arab Spring, with all of its failings and failures, exposed the lie that if we are to live, then we must live as slaves.

Chess helps you to concentrate, improve your logic. It teaches you to play by the rules and take responsibility for your actions, how to problem solve in an uncertain environment.
Human beings lose their logic in their vindictiveness.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
