…On Change

“In the world of knowledge, the essential Form of Good is the limit of our inquiries, and can barely be perceived; but, when perceived, we cannot help concluding that it is in every case the source of all that is bright and beautiful,- in the visible world giving birth to light and its master, and in the intellectual world dispensing, immediately and with full authority, truth and reason;- and that whosoever would act wisely, either in private or in public, must set the Form of Good before his eyes.” – Plato (Allegory of the Cave)

“You must be the change you wish to see in this world” – Gandhi (bet you didn’t see this one coming)

“A man is but the product of his thoughts; what he thinks, he becomes.” -Gandhi

“Be not simply good, be good for something.” – Thoreau

“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.” -C.S. Lewis

“Each person’s task in life is to become an increasingly better person.” -Leo Tolstoy

“Seek not the favor of the multitude; it is seldom got by honest and lawful means. But seek the testimony of few; and number not voices, but weigh them.” -Immanuel Kant

“Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” – Viktor Frankl

“When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.” -Viktor Frankl
