Socrates
“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.”
Socrates

Christopher Hitchens
“Even if it were possible to cast my horoscope in this one life, and to make an accurate prediction about my future, it would not be possible to 'show' it to me because as soon as I saw it my future would change by definition. This is why Werner Heisenberg's adaptation of the Hays Office—the so-called principle of uncertainty whereby the act of measuring something has the effect of altering the measurement—is of such importance. In my case the difference is often made by publicity. For example, and to boast of one of my few virtues, I used to derive pleasure from giving my time to bright young people who showed promise as writers and who asked for my help. Then some profile of me quoted someone who disclosed that I liked to do this. Then it became something widely said of me, whereupon it became almost impossible for me to go on doing it, because I started to receive far more requests than I could respond to, let alone satisfy. Perception modifies reality: when I abandoned the smoking habit of more than three decades I was given a supposedly helpful pill called Wellbutrin. But as soon as I discovered that this was the brand name for an antidepressant, I tossed the bottle away. There may be successful methods for overcoming the blues but for me they cannot include a capsule that says: 'Fool yourself into happiness, while pretending not to do so.' I should actually want my mind to be strong enough to circumvent such a trick.”
Christopher Hitchens, Hitch-22: A Memoir

Heather Grace Stewart
“You meet dozens of people who tell you you can't do it. Surround yourself with the people who believe you will do it. Seek out and spend time with those rare people who tell you, no BS, why you haven't done it yet, what it takes to do it, and how they could help you do it. Note how this advice works whether 'it' is robbing a bank, opening a gallery, or writing a bestseller. "It" is up to you. But you can't do it alone.”
Heather Grace Stewart, Three Spaces

“People who can't be questioned often end up doing questionable things.”

Josh Hatcher
“Mentorship happens organically, and you can’t just force it. Many men don’t even know HOW to mentor, and often mentor others by accident. It’s not a mentor’s responsibility to mentor, it’s the responsibility of the mentee to seek mentorship and appropriate it.”
Josh Hatcher, Manlihood: The 12 Pillars of Masculinity

Orrin Woodward
“The passion/hunger of the student brings out the experience/wisdom of the mentor.”
Orrin Woodward, LIFE

“when we work together, we achieve more. Character is not a concept that is simply spoken about, but actually manifests itself through our actions.”
Jose A. Aviles, Peer Mentorship in High School: A Comprehensive Guide to Implementing a Successful Peer Mentorship Program in Your School

Curtis Tyrone Jones
“Sometimes we need a wise guide to peel back the ceiling of our lives to remind us that infinity never places any limits on our skies.”
Curtis Tyrone Jones

“Mentorships, similar to other important relationships, usually end. Ideological differences and a need to chart a personal path might preclude parties from maintaining the original balance that stabilized a mentoring relationship. Conflict between an apprentice and his master is not always bad; in fact, it is almost inevitable, if the apprentice’s destiny is to exceed the accomplishments of the master.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“Don't just become a monument of information, rather a solace of knowledge refuge.”
Unarine Ramaru

Josh Hatcher
“What books can you read to learn about this part of your life? What people do you need to confide in to grow deeper? What things do you need to stop doing in order to grow? What things do you need to start doing?”
Josh Hatcher, Manlihood: The 12 Pillars of Masculinity

Orrin Woodward
“Men's Leadership Success Formula: Get up, Show up, Man up, Mentor up, and Move up!”
Orrin Woodward

“When taking on a leadership role in business remember it's about relationships. If your people (aka employees) are taken care of then they will respect you and return the favor.”
Michael A. Contés II

“When the right stage gets missing, true talent that can grow to inspire, nurture and change lives least gets the right stage to manifest; real deft and dexterity remains latent and people only die with their dreams, abilities and capabilities.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Christopher Isherwood
“[EM] Forster was the only living writer whom he would have described as his master. In other people’s books he found examples of style which he wanted to imitate and learn from. In Forster he found a key to the whole art of writing. The Zen masters of archery—of whom, in those days, Christopher had never heard—start by teaching you the mental attitude with which you must pick up the bow. A Forster novel taught Christopher the mental attitude with which he must pick up the pen.”
Christopher Isherwood

Lazarus Takawira
“No matter how much you water the ground, if the ground holds no seed then no plant is coming out. Don’t expect the plant to come out unless you have sown the seed”
Lazarus Takawira, Imagine Africa

Elizabeth Goudge
“...He was a greater craftsman even than Isaac, and he knew it, and so, presently, did Isaac.

There was a greatness in Isaac. One evening at supper, between one bite of sausage and another, he was able to acknowledge that it was so. "He must increase, but I must decrease," he said to himself. He did not know where the quotation came from, or that in taking it to himself he had taken a fence at which many balked or fell. He finished the sausage without having the slightest idea that he was not the same man that he had been when he embarked upon it. The next morning he smiled at Job and asked him if he would like to help him with his clock. Job went crimson to the roots of his hair and unable to speak bent to pick up a tool he had dropped under the workbench. When he reappeared he was no more able to speak than he had been before, but his face was shining like the morning sun. From that moment the two increasingly loved each other.”
Elizabeth Goudge, The Dean's Watch

“Walk and learn from the people that inspire you to do great things”
Sunday Adelaja

“We are each warriors of our own times. When we step out of our protective shell, we each encounter forces much more powerful than we are. What we learn through testing ourselves on the combat zones of our eon becomes the textbook protocol for how we shall live out the remainder of our life. The glorious skirmishes and daunting conflicts that we encounter, and what we learn from vigorous engagements on the battlefield of time, inscribe the story of our lives. Spiritual leaders help guide us in our times of doubt and self-questioning. Recognizing the value of the mentorship of spiritual guides in their self-questing ventures, persons who endure immense adversity wish to reciprocate their love of humanity by sharing the scored story of their episodic journey through the corridors of time and relay the incisive truths they discovered to any other travelers with a willing ear.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“Locate things that motivate you and surround yourself with people that inspire you”
Sunday Adelaja

“If you keep on doing what you do, you will never be more than who you are right now.”
Master Shifu

“Never take advice from someone you wouldn’t trade places with.”
