Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Albert Einstein
“Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of other men —above all for those upon whose smile and well-being our own happiness depends, for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received and am still receiving.”
Albert Einstein, Living Philosophies

“That was our friendship: equal parts irritation and cooperation.”
Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

up to a certain point and no further,
but cooperation, which is the thing
we must strive for today,
begins where competition leaves off.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Fulton J. Sheen
“The mark of man is initiative, but the mark of woman is cooperation. Man talks about freedom; woman about sympathy, love, sacrifice. Man cooperates with nature; woman cooperates with God. Man was called to till the earth, to "rule over the earth"; woman to be the bearer of a life that comes from God.”
Fulton J. Sheen, The World's First Love: Mary, Mother of God

Sarah Dunn
“You've got to let people be just, you know, people. Everyone does bad things sometimes, for all sorts of reasons. You've got to at least understand.”
Sarah Dunn, Secrets to Happiness

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

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

“That word is 'willing.' It's an attitude and spirit of cooperation that should permeate our conversations. It's like a palm tree by the ocean that endures the greatest winds because it knows how to gracefully bend. ”
Stephen Kendrick, The Love Dare

Tamora Pierce
“Daja: "He and Rosethorn work together? They hate each other."
Lark: "I didn't say they liked it.
- Daja and Lark referring to Rosethorn and Crane's cooperation on finding the cures for new diseases”
Tamora Pierce, Briar's Book

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

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

Chuck Palahniuk
“You decide your own level of involvement.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

“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

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

Errico Malatesta
“The needs, tastes, aspirations and interests of mankind are neither similar nor naturally harmonious; often they are diametrically opposed and antagonistic. On the other hand, the life of each individual is so conditioned by the life of others that it would be impossible, even assuming it were convenient to do so, to isolate oneself and live one’s own life. Social solidarity is a fact from which no one can escape.”
Errico Malatesta, Malatesta: Life & Ideas

Scotty McLennan
“All of us--bright atheists and committed religionists--need to wake now and hear the earth call . . . . We need to give and receive as love shows us how, join with each pilgrim who quests for the true, give heed to the voices of the suffering, awaken our consciences with justice as our guide, and work toward a planet transformed by our care.”
Scotty McLennan, Jesus Was a Liberal: Reclaiming Christianity for All

Thomas Sowell
“In a world where every society and every civilization has borrowed heavily from the cultures of other societies and other civilizations, everyone does not have to go back to square one and discover fire and the wheel for himself, when someone else has already discovered it. Europeans did not have to continue copying scrolls by hand after the Chinese invented paper and printing. Malaysia could become the world’s leading rubber-producing nation after planting seeds taken from Brazil. Yet the equal-respect “identity” promoters would have each group paint itself into its own little corner, with its own insular culture, thus presenting over all a static tableau of “diversity,” rather than the dynamic process of competition on which the progress of the human race has been based for thousands of years.”
Thomas Sowell, The Quest for Cosmic Justice

“Any relationship is based on love, trust
and cooperation.

History shows that the collapse of the state is almost always caused by quarrels among themselves. Motivated by each other, they betray each other. They are also traitors to their country because of selfishness”
Srinivas Mishra

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“We cannot live with each other at the exclusion of each other for then the richness of our shared experience will die an impoverished death, and in the dying it will kill the dreams that we were both fighting for.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Night fell. Yet, despite the day’s grueling efforts to rummage for food and secure safe habitation, the forest and its inhabitants drifted off to sleep in perfect unison. And I thought that none of them jostled for the position of another, or sought some better position for themselves out of avarice or greed or some baser agenda. Rather, each played its role admirably and found that in doing so all of those roles meshed in a now stilled unity. And staring at the stars with the crickets gently lulling a satisfied world to sleep, I wondered why we can’t be more like the woods.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough
