Criss Jami
“Most men either compromise or drop their greatest talents and start running after, what they perceive to be, a more reasonable success, and somewhere in between they end up with a discontented settlement. Safety is indeed stability, but it is not progression.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Criss Jami
“Those who speak of progression but are afraid of change are self-repressed and therefore unable to reach any further than their eyes can already see.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

John Perkins
“Stop being so greedy, and so selfish. Realize that there is more to the world than your big houses and fancy stores. People are starving and you worry about oil for your cars. Babies are dying of thirst and you search the fashion pages for the latest styles. Nations like ours are drowing in poverty, but your people don't even hear our cries for help. You shut your ears to the voices of those who try to tell you these things. You label them radicals or Communists. You must open your hearts to the poor and downtrodden, instead of driving them further into poverty and servitude. There's not much time left. If you don't change, you're doomed.”
John Perkins, The Secret History of the American Empire: Economic Hit Men, Jackals & the Truth about Global Corruption

“The difference between real life and a story is that life has significance, while a story must have meaning.

The former is not always apparent, while the latter always has to be, before the end.”
Vera Nazarian

“The job facing production managers focuses on how to help their team maintain hope while also addressing the sometimes brutal or dismal facts of their situation. If the truth of their position remains unseen, they will never grow the skills necessary to resolve it.”

Criss Jami
“There was a time when skepticism was an act of rebellion. Since to a degree I both believe in evolution and have faith, I can only conclude that, as prophesied, to have faith will someday be an act of rebellion.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Criss Jami
“I would rather my descendants have greater abilities and a greater knowledge of the love of Christ than I do, much like standing on one's shoulders in order to get a clearer view of the valley.”
Criss Jami, Salomé: In Every Inch In Every Mile

Brandon Sanderson
“There was rarely an obvious branching point in a person's life. People changed slowly, over time. You didn't take one step, then find yourself in a completely new location. You first took a little step off the path to avoid some rocks. For a while, you walked alongside the path, but then you wandered out a little way to step on softer soil. Then you stopped paying attention as you drifted farther and farther away. Finally, you found yourself in the wrong city, wondering why the signs on the roadway hadn't led you better.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Emperor's Soul

“After you hear and listen. First must come desire. Second must come willingness.
Third should come understanding.
Fourth should come progression and with progression will come more understanding.”
Hyrum Yeakley

“All the managers I interviewed had the same sense of identity and self-assurance. None of them were arrogant. Instead, they were clear about who they were and what needed accomplishing. They used that sense of self to engage their team and learn each team member’s strengths and contributions. Their courage and confidence were infectious to their team and to anyone who crossed their paths.”

Iain Reid
“School is the place we all have to go. There is potential. School is about the future. Looking forward to something, progression, growing, maturing. It's supposed to be safe here, but is has become the opposite. It feels like a prison.”
Iain Reid, I'm Thinking of Ending Things

“One cannot measure a manager’s knowledge and performance in a vacuum. It involves their participation in business activities while bringing all of themselves to the process of development, including their spiritual, personal, and skill & ability development.”
Raymond Wheeler, Lift: Five Practices Great Managers Do Consistently: Raise Performance and Morale - See Your Employees Thrive

“This life is not given to us as a pastime. There was a solemn purpose in our creation, in the life that God has given to us. Let us study what that purpose is, that we may progress and obtain eternal life.”
George Albert Smith

“Men, discouraged by their failure to accomplish exactly what they desire, often speak of their lives as purposeless, but it is idle talk, for, in fact, no intelligent life which concerns itself vigorously and properly with the things about it can be said to be purposeless. Such a life adheres, automatically, to the law of progression, and therefore moves toward a great destiny of supreme power and accompanying joys. The only purposeless life is the one that does not use its faculties. It matters little what tasks men perform in life, if only they do them well and will all their strength. In the eternal plan they are given progressive value. In an infinite universe, one cannot possibly learn all or do all, at once. A beginning must be made somewhere and corner by corner, department by department, space by space, all will be known and conquered. In the end, all must be explored, and whether one begins in the east or the west cannot matter much. The big concern is the extent to which a man offers himself, mind and body, to his worthwhile work. Upon that will growth depend.”
John A. Widtsoe, Rational Theology

Criss Jami
“History fancies itself linear - but yields to a cyclical temptation.”
Criss Jami, Healology

Tony Warrick
“A small step of progression is a thousand times better than a delayed step of perfection. Perfectionism procrastinates and paralyzes progress.”
Tony Warrick

“If you wish to rebel, think for yourself. Relentlessly seek truth. But beware: the truth-seeking rebel’s path is a lonely one. Not many travel along it. The relentless pursuit of truth often—even usually—puts you at odds with the masses, who tend to follow the herd and respond to the loudest, most insistent voices. Resist these. Yes, you will often walk alone, but not to worry—truth gives its own rewards: purpose, progression, and peace. Seek truth, engage with it, and act upon it. It will compel you to listen, to love, and to lift.”
Jean-Michel Hansen

“The ultimate task is to get people to see their own lives in terms of the hero’s journey and become heroes themselves. Imagine a Heroic World where everyone is a hero. It would be so much better than the Cowards’ World humanity currently inhabits. People must be able to see where they themselves are on the great journey. Are they stuck? Are they going backwards? What’s blocking their progress? Society should be about making everyone a hero, a god, and showing them exactly how to do it. We start out from the archetypal level of story (Mythos) and end by teaching philosophy, science and mathematics (Logos). Things succeed when everyone gets the message fast, it resonates with them, and they go out and spread it on their own initiative.”
Thomas Stark, Holenmerism and Nullibism: The Two Faces of the Holographic Universe

“to see you shine brighter on the tip of that hill, is a cosmic deal

Sukant Ratnakar, Quantraz

Willa Cather
“But now that the vivid consciousness of an earlier state had come back to him, the Professor felt that life with this Kansas boy, little as there had been of it, was the realest of his lives, and that all the years between had been accidental and ordered from the outside. His career, his wife, his family, were not his life at all, but the chain of events which had happened to him. All these things had nothing to do with the person he was in the beginning.”
Willa Cather, The Professor's House

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“It’s not the size of my feet. Rather, it’s my determination to make them walk.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“No one should persecute someone because of their differences in opinion on the matter. However, without reasoning, there will be no progression.”
Jesus Apolinaris
