Post  Admin on Sat Jul 26, 2008 8:22 pm

John Dewey


Leadership involves finding a parade and getting in front of it.
John Naisbitt

Daniel Dennett

Life is a quest and love a quarrel
Edna St. Vincent Millay

Anyone who conducts an argument by appealing to authority is not using his intelligence; he is just using his memory.
Leonardo da Vinci

Fear not those who argue but those who dodge
Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

Put the argument into a concrete shape, into an image, some hard phrase, round and solid as a ball, which they can see and handle and carry home with them, and the cause is half won.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

On Change and Growth

Post  Admin on Thu Aug 14, 2008 7:04 pm

There's only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self

Aldous Huxley


No person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow.

Alice Walker


It doesn't work to leap a twenty-foot chasm in two ten-foot jumps.

American proverb


There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

When we blindly adopt a religion, a political system, a literary dogma, we become automatons. We cease to grow.

Anais Nin


If you have always done it that way, it is probably wrong.

Charles Kettering


... while we flatter ourselves that things remain the same, they are changing under our very eyes from year to year, from day to day.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman


It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows.

Epictetus


In times of change, learners inherit the Earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.

Eric Hoffer


The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be the beginning.

Ivy Baker Priest


You can judge your age by the amount of pain you feel when you come in contact with a new idea.

Pearl S. Buck


We know what we are, but know not what we may be

William Shakespeare

Kung Fu Panda


Oogway: My friend, the panda will never fulfill his destiny, nor you yours until you let go of the illusion of control.

Shifu: Illusion?

Oogway: Yes.  [points at peach tree]

Oogway: Look at this tree, Shifu: I cannot make it blossom when it suits me nor make it bear fruit before its time.

Shifu: But there are things we can control: I can control when the fruit will fall, I can control where to plant the seed: that is no illusion, Master!

Oogway: Ah, yes. But no matter what you do, that seed will grow to be a peach tree. You may wish for an apple or an orange, but you will get a peach.
