Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
“Control of consciousness determines the quality of life.”
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“But certainly, for us who understand life, figures are a matter of indifference.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

“The part of life we really live is small.' For all the rest of existence is not life, but merely time.”

Michael Moore
“It was the American middle class. No one's house cost more than two or three year's salary, and I doubt the spread in annual wages (except for the osteopath) exceeded more than five thousand dollars. And other than the doctor (who made house calls), the store managers, the minister, the salesman, and the banker, everyone belonged to a union. That meant they worked a forty-hour week, had the entire weekend off (plus two to four weeks' paid vacation in the summer), comprehensive medical benefits, and job security. In return for all that, the country became the most productive in the world and in our little neighborhood it meant your furnace was always working, your kids could be dropped off at the neighbors without notice, you could run next door anytime to borrow a half-dozen eggs, and the doors to all the homes were never locked -- because who would need to steal anything if they already had all that they needed?”
Michael Moore, Here Comes Trouble

Ha-Joon Chang
“Above a certain level of income, the relative value of material consumption vis-a-vis leisure time is diminished, so earning a higher income at the cost of working longer hours may reduce the quality of your life. More importantly, the fact that the citizens of a country work longer than others in comparable countries does not necessarily mean that they like working longer hours. They may be compelled to work long hours, even if they actually want to take longer holidays.”
Ha-Joon Chang, 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
“It might be true that it is “quality time” that counts, but after a certain point quantity has a bearing on quality.”
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience

“We have to examine the extent to which we export poverty to other societies. When we decide that we will import products from China that are produced by people earning less than a dollar an hour, and grant their country most-favored-nation status (political contributions notwithstanding), we are deciding to make American workers who must earn the minimum wage compete with them. I am not suggesting that we close the doors to China or to Mexico, but I am suggesting that we look very carefully at the web of international relationships that we are creating. At the very minimum, we should understand that we have two choices in our country: we can raise world living standards by exporting those standards, or we can lower living standards- not only the world’s but also our own- by deciding that it is acceptable for the products of exploited labor to enter this country.”
Julianne Malveaux

“Havana, Cuba, in which city yellow fever had not failed to make its yearly appearance during the past one hundred and forty years... Havana was freed from yellow fever within ninety days. Dr. Walter Reed, 1902
Walter Reed

Connie Kerbs
“Both the giving and receiving of love is encoded within our deepest physiology and is all-important. This must not be taken for granted. Its expressions in our life – or lack and denial thereof – contribute substantially to our ultimate personal success, satisfaction,
and quality of life.”
Connie Kerbs, Paths of Fear: An Anthology of Overcoming Through Courage, Inspiration, and the Miracle of Love

Debasish Mridha
“Quality of life depends on quality and quantity of happiness.”
Debasish Mridha

“The quality of life depends on the power of love.”
Debasish Mridha M.D.

Fennel Hudson
“Reality is in the ether, a blend of present-day experiences infused with one’s memories and dreams. A life that is real to one is surreal to another.”
Fennel Hudson, A Waterside Year - Fennel's Journal - No. 2

Bruce H. Lipton
“As a nation we should look more carefully at how our fear of future acts of terrorism is undermining our quality of life.”
Bruce H. Lipton, The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles

“The choice to avoid risk is the choice to avoid living, and to avoid living is one of the greatest risk of all.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Dannika Dark
“The length of your life doesn't guarantee a better quality of life.”
Dannika Dark, Two Minutes

“In one respect New Orleans has set an example for all the world in the fight against yellow fever. The first impression was the complete organization of the citizens and the rational and reasonable way in which the fight has been conducted by them. With a tangible enemy in view, the army of defense could begin to fight rationally and scientifically. The... spirit in which the citizens of New Orleans sallied forth to win this fight strikes one who has been witness to the profound gloom, distress, and woe that cloud every other epidemic city. Rupert Boyce, Dean of Liverpool School of Tropical Diseases, 1905
Rupert Boyce

“Eradication represents a complete change of philosophy and a recognition of the equal rights of all citizens to protection from infection, no matter where they live. Eradication, by its very nature, is public health with a conscience. The public health control officer can sleep tranquilly, salving his conscience with the thought that most of his responsibility has been discharged – that he did not have enough money to do any more. The eradicator knows that his success is not measured by what has been accomplished but, rather, is the extent of his failure indicated by what remains to be done. He must stamp out the last embers of infection in his jurisdiction. His slogan must be: ANY IS TOO MANY.”
Fred Lowe Soper, Building the Health Bridge: Selections from the Works of Fred L. Soper

T.K. Naliaka
“Rainy season should fill us with joy, not malaria parasites.”
T.K. Naliaka

Marian Deegan
“Our lives are marked by the people who choose to matter more: the teacher who encouraged our curiosity, the neighbor who lent a helping hand in time of need, the great leaders and perceptive thinkers whose vision and innovation improve the quality of our lives. And that's what it means to matter more. It's not about pursuit of riches or fame. It's about making a difference in people's lives. Remembered or not, lived out in a small town or on the world stage, the journey of relevance matters.”
Marian Deegan, Relevance: Matter More

“Fortunately for the cause of science and of humanity, we had as Governor-General of Cuba at that time General Leonard Wood, of the United States Army. General Wood had been educated as a physician, and had a very proper idea of the great advantages which would accrue to the world if we could establish the fact that yellow fever was conveyed by the mosquito, and his medical training made him a very competent judge as to the steps necessary to establish such fact. General Wood during the whole course of the investigations took the greatest interest in the experiments, and assisted the Board in every way he could.”
William Crawford Gorgas, Sanitation in Panama

“...distinction between growth and development. Aggregate growth in national economic indicators need not mean an improved life for the majority of the people.”
Raewyn Connell and Nour Dados

Bob   Anderson
“Leadership makes a difference in the results we create and the quality of life we live.”
Bob Anderson, Mastering Leadership: An Integrated Framework for Breakthrough Performance and Extraordinary Business Results

“God is omnipresent, yet the attempts to provide him a transit office space are made good in a temple”
Priyavrat Thareja- The Temple of TQM, OmniScience, Vol 2, No 2 (2012)

“After you defined Quality, it was the turn of quantity. Now apply judicious quality control. Select what can be improved? Strive for achieving the perceived Quality as above. Practically, a virtuous circle to this Quality is followed through deploying Deming's PDSA”
Priyavrat Thareja

“The nineteenth century is called the century of hygiene, and the twentieth is the century of medicine. The twenty-first century may be the century of behavioral change. Changing everyday, long-term behaviors--how we exercise, what we eat--is the key to adding years and quality to our lives.”
Michael Stein

Arne Næss
“Quality of life is here considered to be something incompatible with artificial, material standards above that necessary for the satisfaction of fundamental needs, and secondly, that ecological considerations are to be regarded as preconditions for life quality, therefore not outside human responsibility…The lifestyle of the majority should be changed so that the material standard of living in the Western countries becomes universalisable within this century. A consumption over and above that which everyone can attain within the foreseeable future cannot be justified.”
Arne Næss, Ecology, Community and Lifestyle: Outline of an Ecosophy

Stan Jacobs
“The quality of your life is in direct relationship to the quality of your habits and rituals.”
Stan Jacobs, The Dusk And Dawn Master: A Practical Guide to Transforming Evening and Morning Habits, Achieving Better Sleep, and Mastering Your Life

“Have we ever thought to consider that God allows things in our lives to die so that in that death we might come to the precious realization of how little we’ve actually lived in the first place?”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“Sometimes the very things that we’re expending our lives to sustain are the very things that are killing our ability to live. And against our blind and frequently raging protests, these are the very things that God let’s die so that we can live.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Fennel Hudson
“As travellers through time, we are burdened with the stone in our shoe that tells us to stop running, to pause and take stock before we stumble and fall. We should make time to savour the quality of our lives before it’s too late.”
Fennel Hudson, A Meaningful Life - Fennel's Journal - No. 1
