Fred Rogers
“It's very dramatic when two people come together to work something out. It's easy to take a gun and annihilate your opposition, but what is really exciting to me is to see people with differing views come together and finally respect each other.”
Fred Rogers, The World According to Mister Rogers: Important Things to Remember

Vera Nazarian
“A choir is made up of many voices, including yours and mine. If one by one all go silent then all that will be left are the soloists.

Don’t let a loud few determine the nature of the sound. It makes for poor harmony and diminishes the song.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Criss Jami
“If the entire world sought to make itself worthy of happiness rather than make itself happy, then the entire world would be happy.”
Criss Jami, Venus in Arms

Shane Claiborne
“As Christians, we should be the best collaborators in the world. We should be quick to find unlikely allies and subversive friends, like Jesus did.”
Shane Claiborne, Red Letter Revolution: What If Jesus Really Meant What He Said?

“The waves smash against rocks, boulder thunders upon bolder. Granite men grind one another, leaving their clean sand to floor the ocean.

The alternative would be for the republic to breed up a race of men who could work together without growing violent: men more interested in getting somewhere than having their own way."

Haniel Long: Homestead 1892: Pittsburgh Memoranda.”
Haniel Long, Pittsburgh Memoranda

Phil Wohl
“We were sitting outside at our favorite Italian restaurant, Callini’s, one Friday lunch when Sam revealed to me what his ideal female looked like. A few women walked by and Sam used words like “big legs” and “too big up top” to describe women that barely weighed over 100 pounds. The following bomb then pried its way out of his mouth, “I’m still in love with Winny Cooper.”
I replied with shock in my voice, “Winny Cooper from The Wonder Years?”
Sam glowed, “Yeah, Winny is my ideal woman.”
“You do realize that she was a little girl in that show,” I said trying to awaken Sam’s better judgment.
He started laughing, “Winnie was a babe. I had a huge crush on her.”
I needed clarification: “You do realize that you were in your 20s when that show was on. So, that would mean that you had a crush on a 12 year-old.”
Phil Wohl, Lunch with Sam

Phil Wohl
“It was a rite of passage each year at Manhattan Life Insurance Company. The golden doors would open every summer to a new crop of bright-eyed college students, all of which were over-qualified for a job that required little more than a high school-equivalent GED and a fully loaded MetroCard.”
Phil Wohl, Manhattan Life

Nathaniel Philbrick
“The moment any of them gave up on the difficult work of living with their neighbors--and all of the compromise, frustration, and delay that inevitably entailed--they risked losing everything.”
Nathaniel Philbrick, Mayflower: A Story of Courage, Community, and War

Patrick Carman
“I was beginning to see fewer of our weaknesses and more of our strengths; the events of the day were a reminder of how each of us had certain abilities that the rest did not. It was as if we were each a part of a whole body- one the hands, another the legs, and so on- dependent on one another and working best when we performed in unity. I felt inadequate then, unsure what part of this body I might be.”
Patrick Carman, Beyond the Valley of Thorns

Anthony Esolen
“It's rather the possibility of friendship, unencumbered by feelings of attraction or shyness; the possibility of working on the same wavelength, as it were, with someone who understands you because he's a boy as you are, or a girl as you are. Committee work stifles the imagination, because people have to work down to the common denominator of what would be minimally acceptable to everyone. But friendship exalts the imagination. Indeed it is one of the things that the ancients said friendship was for. Plato suggests in Symposium that one of the highest forms of friendship is one whose love issues forth in beautiful and virtuous deeds, for thus "the partnership between [the friends] will be far closer and the bond of affection far stronger than between ordinary parents, because the children that they share surpass human children by being immortal as well as more beautiful.”
Anthony Esolen, Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child

“Ninety per cent of the art of living consists of getting on with people you can't stand.”
Samuel Goldwyn

Ed Catmull
“A better measure of our success is to look at the people on our team and see how they are working together. Can they rally to solve key problems? If the answer is yes, you are managing well.”
Ed Catmull, Creativity, Inc.: Overcoming the Unseen Forces That Stand in the Way of True Inspiration
