“After more than two decades here, I know that kindness is not a value that’s encouraged. It’s often seen as a weakness. Instead, the culture encourages keeping your head down, minding your own business, and never letting yourself be vulnerable.”
Dan Gediman, This I Believe: Life Lessons

“I believe in the pursuit of happiness. Not its attainment, nor its final definition, but its pursuit. I believe in the journey, not the arrival; in conversation, not monologues; in multiple questions rather than any single answer. I believe in the struggle to remake ourselves and challenge each other in the spirit of eternal forgiveness, in the awareness that none of us knows for sure what happiness truly is, but each of us knows the imperative to keep searching. I believe in the possibility of surprising joy, of serenity through pain, of homecoming through exile.”
Dan Gediman, This I Believe: The Personal Philosophies of Remarkable Men and Women

“Action is what separates a belief from an opinion. Beliefs are imprinted through actions.”
Dan Gediman, This I Believe: The Personal Philosophies of Remarkable Men and Women
