Joss Whedon
“All I ask is this: Do something. Try something. Speaking out, showing up, writing a letter, a check, a strongly worded e-mail. Pick a cause – there are few unworthy ones. And nudge yourself past the brink of tacit support to action. Once a month, once a year, or just once...Even just learning enough about a subject so you can speak against an opponent eloquently makes you an unusual personage. Start with that. Any one of you would have cried out, would have intervened, had you been in that crowd in Bashiqa. Well thanks to digital technology, you’re all in it now.”
Joss Whedon

Shannon L. Alder
“The Anatomy of Conflict:

If there is no communication then there is no respect. If there is no respect then there is no caring. If there is no caring then there is no understanding. If there is no understanding then there is no compassion. If there is no compassion then there is no empathy. If there is no empathy then there is no forgiveness. If there is no forgiveness then there is no kindness. If there is no kindness then there is no honesty. If there is no honesty then there is no love. If there is no love then God doesn't reside there. If God doesn't reside there then there is no peace. If there is no peace then there is no happiness. If there is no happiness ----then there IS CONFLICT BECAUSE THERE IS NO COMMUNICATION!”
Shannon L. Alder

None of it works unless YOU work. We have to do our part. If knowing is half the battle, action is the second half of the battle.”
Jim Kwik

“First, observe and ponder, and then use silence to speak, and then speak through words, then take action to correct something; make sure you achieve something distinctive in the end!

Don’t just take action and don’t just do anything just because you must do something; know the real and true end result, mind your emotions and always get a noble reason for action!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
