“When this new type of commitment starts to operate, there is a flow around us. Things just seem to happen. We begin to see that with very small movements, at just the right time and place, all sorts of consequent actions are brought into being. We develop what artists refer to as an ‘economy of means,’ where, rather than getting things done through effort and brute force, we start to operate very subtly. A flow of meaning begins to operate around us, as if we were part of a larger conversation.” – Peter Senge


“The true spirit of conversation consists more in bringing out the cleverness of others than in showing a great deal of it yourself; he who goes away pleased with himself and his own wit is also greatly pleased with you. Most men…seek less to be instructed, and even to be amused, than to be praised and applauded.” – Jean de La Bruyere

“One half of knowing what you want is knowing what you must give up before you get it.” – Sidney Howard

“The greatest time wasted is the time getting started.” – Dawson Trotman

“There are many things that will catch my eye, but there are only a few that catch my heart. It is those I consider to pursue.” – Tim Redmond

“If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astonish ourselves.” – Thomas Edison

“When a man has put a limit on what he will do, he has put a limit on what he can do.” – Charles Schwab

“No person can be found, who has been, is, or will be only criticized or only praised.” – The Dhammapada

“They are forever free who renounce all selfish desires and break away from the ego cage of ‘I’, ‘me’, and ‘mine’.” – Bhagavad Gita, 2:71
