Identical by Ellen Hopkins
She's no longer afraid to die. What she's afraid of is living, accepting the status quo.Ellen Hopkins

Richard Rohr
“If change and growth are not programmed into your spirituality, if there are not serious warnings about the blinding nature of fear and fanaticism, your religion will always end up worshiping the status quo and protecting your present ego position and personal advantage as if it were God.”
Richard Rohr, Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

George Saunders
“When something really bad is going on in a culture, the average guy doesn’t see it. He can’t. He’s average. And is surrounded by and immersed in the cant and discourse of the status quo.”
George Saunders

Arthur Schopenhauer
“One should use common words to say uncommon things”
Arthur Schopenhauer

John Gardner
“All to often, on the long road up, young leaders become servants of what is rather than shapers of what might be.”
John Gardner

Desmond Tutu
“I wish I could shut up, but I can't, and I won't.”
Desmond Tutu
