We must dare to think 'unthinkable' thoughts. We must learn to explore all the options and possibilities that confront us in a complex and rapidly changing world. We must learn to welcome and not to fear the voices of dissent. We must dare to think about the 'unthinkable things' because when things become unthinkable, thinking stops and action becomes mindless.
James W. Fulbright
No matter what the future holds in store for Mankind... no matter what the dawning of the Third Millennium may bring...be it wisdom and peace, or chaos and sorrow...whether we take our first steps toward our salvation...or spiral into our damnation...always remember to keep your head held high, your shoulders square, a song in your heart, and your eyes on the Goal. After all...we are only Human. Right?
Edward J. Thomas
At first people refuse to believe that a strange new thing can be done, then they begin to hope it can't be done. They hope it can't be done because it means seeing the garden in a whole new way. Then they see it can be done. Then it is done and all the world wonders why it was not done centuries before.
Frances Hodgson Burnett (The Secret Garden)
In every age 'the good old days' were a myth. No one ever thought they were good at the time. For every age has consisted of crises that seemed intolerable to the people who lived through them.
Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you did not do than by the things you did do. So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
In studying the history of the human mind one is impressed again by the fact that the growth of the mind is the widening of the range of consciousness, and that each step forward has been a most painful and laborious achievement. One could almost say that nothing is more hateful to man than to give up even a particle of his unconsciousness. Ask those who have tried to introduce a new idea!
