Stephen Kendrick, The Love Dare

Aleister Crowley
“In Astrology, the moon, among its other meanings, has that of "the common people," who submit (they know not why) to any independent will that can express itself with sufficient energy. The people who guillotined the mild Louis XVI died gladly for Napoleon. The impossibility of an actual democracy is due to this fact of mob-psychology. As soon as you group men, they lose their personalities. A parliament of the wisest and strongest men in the nation is liable to behave like a set of schoolboys, tearing up their desks and throwing their inkpots at each other. The only possibility of co-operation lies in discipline and autocracy, which men have sometimes established in the name of equal rights.”
Aleister Crowley, Moonchild

Fulton J. Sheen, The World's First Love: Mary, Mother of God

Nicholas Sparks
“A good marriage, like any partnership, meant subordinating one's own needs to that of the other's, in the expectation that the other will do the same.”
Nicholas Sparks, True Believer

Wallace Stegner
“One cannot be pessimistic about the West. This is the native home of hope. When it fully learns that cooperation, not rugged individualism, is the quality that most characterizes and preserves it, then it will have achieved itself and outlived its origins. Then it has a chance to create a society to match its scenery.”
Wallace Stegner, The Sound of Mountain Water

Criss Jami
“I find it a challenge to cooperate in a society where it's considered moral to critique a résumé yet immoral to critique morality.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Seneca
“One hand washes the other.
(Manus Manum Lavat)”
Seneca

Carl Sagan
“The hole in the ozone layer is a kind of skywriting. At first it seemed to spell out our continuing complacency before a witch's brew of deadly perils. But perhaps it really tells of a newfound talent to work together to protect the global environment.”
Carl Sagan, Billions & Billions: Thoughts on Life and Death at the Brink of the Millennium

Ransom Riggs

Scotty McLennan, Jesus Was a Liberal: Reclaiming Christianity for All

“& may you shine on in the sky with diamonds & dreams...do it for the suit behind the platform, who only wished he were free.
have strength in freedom.”

Anthony Biglan
“Humans have evolved levels of cooperation that are unprecedented among primate species. You can see it even in babies. Say you are playing with a baby and begin to put the toys in a box. If you point to one of the toys, the baby is likely to put it in the box (Liebal et al. 2009)... Human babies are more likely than other primates to follow another’s pointing or gaze. Thus, even before adults have socialized them, babies show tendencies to be in sync with the social behavior of others, to infer others’ intentions to cooperate, and to prefer cooperation in others.”
Anthony Biglan, The Nurture Effect: How the Science of Human Behavior Can Improve Our Lives and Our World

Lailah Gifty Akita
“Good team and network promotes amazing results.”
Lailah Gifty Akita, Beautiful Quotes

Christopher McDougall
“After all, what else did we have going for us? Nothing, except we ran like crazy and stuck together. Humans are among the most comunal and cooperative of all primates; our sole defense in a fang-filled world was our solidarity, and there's no reason to think we suddently disbanded our most crucial challenge, the hunt for food. I remembered what the Seri Indians told Scott Carrier after the sun had set on their persistence-hunting days. "It was better before," a Seri elder lamented. "We did everything as a family. The whole community was a family. We shared everything and cooperated, but now there is a lot of arguing and bickering, every man for himself."
Running didn't just make the Seris a people...it also made them better people.”
Christopher McDougall, Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen

“As the leader of a group, your success is going to depend, not only upon yourself, but on the cooperation of every person, working with you. If they do not cooperate, you will not accomplish anything, no matter how brilliant you may prove to be.”
J. Vernon Jacobs

Hina Hashmi, Your Life A Practical Guide to Happiness Peace and Fulfilment

Hina Hashmi
“Materialize what you want with cooperation of other people not by depriving them.”
Hina Hashmi, Your Life A Practical Guide to Happiness Peace and Fulfilment
