Action is Better Than Passivity

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in that grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."

Developing an Elastic Head

Lisa Dickson  has hit enough walls in her life to develop an Elastic Head: "Give me your bureaucracies. Give me your behind-the-door politics. Give me your staff caught captive by fear of reprisal if they speak out." Hey, World Changers -- we can and we will Make A Difference!!

"There will be a moment in your life when you realize that you've made it through the fire and survived - and all you can feel is grateful. Love - when you'd never had love. Security - when you've never known the meaning of security. This is YOUR LIFE. This is what life has for you. Don't - Let - Go!"

Change Can Be Messy

"But remember this: I never suggested that change would be easy. Or that I could do it alone. Democracy in a nation of 300 million people can be noisy and messy and complicated. And when you try to do big things and make big changes, it stirs passion and controversy. That's just how it is."
