Inept Quotations

Literature must rest always on a principle, and temporal considerations are no principle at all. For, to the poet, all times and places are one; the stuff he deals with is eternal and eternally the same: no theme is inept, no past or present preferable.
Oscar Wilde

If people are failing, they look inept. If people are succeeding, they look strong and good and competent. That's the 'halo effect.' Your first impression of a thing sets up your subsequent beliefs. If the company looks inept to you, you may assume everything else they do is inept.
Daniel Kahneman

Housework is the only activity at which men are allowed to be consistently inept because they are thought to be so competent at everything else.
Letty Cottin Pogrebin

Dressing up is inevitably a substitute for good ideas. It is no coincidence that technically inept business types are known as 'suits'.
Paul Graham

The good news, to relieve all this gloom, is that a democracy is inherently self-correcting. Here, the people are sovereign. Inept political leaders can be replaced. Foolish policies can be changed. Disastrous mistakes can be reversed.
