“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again,

because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause;

who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and at worst if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”

– Theodore Roosevelt

“As a developmental neuropsychologist, I have devoted a great deal of study to the peculiar relationship between violence and pleasure. I am now convinced that the deprivation of physical sensory pleasure is the principal root cause of violence” – James Prescott

“Prescott’s persuasive research has been ignored in ” advanced” societies where the natural process of birth has been medicalized; where newborns are separated from their parents for extended periods; where parents are told to let infants cry for fear of spoiling them; where parents goad young children to achiveve more by telling them they’re not good enough; where parents, believing that genes are destiny, let children develop on thier own. all of these unnatural parenting behaviors are a recipe for continued violence on this planet” – Bruce Lipton

“If we find ourselves stressed out about the planet, politics, wars, and other issues that matter to us we are damaging our bodies and becoming less resourceful. Getting upset about an important environmental issue doesn’t do anything about the issue itself. Many of us have a false belief that nothing will change unless we become upset. The reality, however, is that we help effect change by positive action- Not by being stressed out about the issue.” – Nick Ortner

The Dalai Lama weighed in on the debate around women leadership and came out firmly on the side of the female.

Talking to reporters during a visit to Australia, the Buddhist leader was asked to weigh in on gender during a race for Prime Minister that has included charges of sexism.

Speaking generally, the Dalai Lama suggested that the crisis of suffering and inequality in the world requires a compassionate approach to leadership:

“In that respect, biologically, females have more potential… Females have more sensitivity about others’ wellbeing. In my own case, my father, very short temper. On a few occasions I also got some beatings. But my mother was so wonderfully compassionate.” – The Dalai Lama
