It's crucial to understand that as a society, we can reorganize. We can reorganize socially, politically, and economically, and we can reorganize according to our values.
-- Rebecca Adamson

 

Viewed with one disposition, history has so far been a horrible accumulation of oppression and suffering. Viewed with another disposition, however, history has chronicled humans discovering their own finer potentials and together mounting heroic offensives to attain them - against monarchy, feudalism, slavery, Jim Crow racism, apartheid, sexual subjugation, second class citizenship, sexism, heterosexism, dictatorship, one party rule, capitalism, and coordinatorism (calling itself socialism) - and seeking, in their place, equity, justice, and freedom. The gains humans have made have been steady and plentiful. Now a major leap is possible. Consistent with past efforts, we can now attain fully liberatory goals, including, I think, participatory economics and also alternative structures for polity, culture, and kinship. We have only to make the effort.
-- Michael Albert

"I wish people would love everybody else the way they love me. It would be a better world."
-- Muhammad Ali

* "If our hopes of building a better and safer world are to become more than wishful thinking, we will need the engagement of volunteers more than ever."
Kofi Annan


"No man should think himself a zero, and think he can do nothing about the state of the world."
-- Bernard Baruch

"The power of a movement lies in the fact that it can indeed change the habits of people. This change is not the result of force but of dedication, of moral persuasion. "
-- Stephen Biko

 

 

Democracy is the ultimate, positive revolution because it gives each and every individual the power to control their lives. And we can work together to create a just, sustainable world.
-- Bill Blackman

I believe that we are at the point now, in the United States, where a movement is beginning to emerge.
-- Grace Lee Boggs

I believe that we are at the point now, in the United States, where a movement is beginning to emerge. I think that the calamity, the quagmire of the Iraq war, the outsourcing of jobs, the drop-out of young people from the education system, the monstrous growth of the prison-industrial complex, the planetary emergency, which we are engulfed at the present moment, is demanding that instead of just complaining about these things, instead of just protesting about these things, we begin to look for, and hope for, another way of living. And I think that-- that's where the movement-- I-- I see a movement beginning to emerge, 'cause I see hope beginning to trump despair.
-- Grace Lee Boggs

* When the story of these times gets written, we want it to say that we did all we could, and it was more than anyone could have imagined.
-- Bono

 

"We are working to help people become better people; then this will become a better world."
--
Eva Burrows

Know what's weird? Day by day, nothing seems to change, but pretty soon...everything's different.
-- Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes

* Do what you can to show you care about other people, and you will make our world a better place.
-- Rosalynn Carter

There is clearly much left to be done, and whatever else we are going to do, we had better get on with it.
-- Rosalynn Carter

* You must work - we must all work to make the world worthy of its children.
-- Pablo Casals

* To the wrongs that need resistance, To the right that needs assistance, To the future in the distance, Give yourselves.
-- Carrie Chapman Catt

 

* all of us should be invovled in our own futures to create a world that our children will want to live in.
-- Harry Chapin

I believe that success brings responsibility. It also does not bring immunity to the consequences of our quickening march towards oblivion. The bottom line is that all of us should be invovled in our own futures to create a world that our children will want to live in.
-- Harry Chapin

We all have the potential to move the world, and the world is ready to be moved.
-- Harry Chapin

"There are no magic answers, no miraculous methods to overcome the problems we face, just the familiar ones: honest search for understanding, education, organization, action that raises the cost of state violence for its perpetrators or that lays the basis for institutional change -- and the kind of commitment that will persist despite the temptations of disillusionment, despite many failures and only limited successes, inspired by the hope of a brighter future."
-- Noam Chomsky

"When we acknowledge that all of life is sacred and that each act is an act of choice and therefore sacred, then life is a sacred dance lived consciously each moment. When we live at this level, we participate in the creation of a better world."
-- Scout Cloud Lee

"Did universal charity prevail, earth would be a heaven, and hell a fable.
-- Charles Caleb Colton (1825)

"You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end each of us must work for his or her own improvement, and at the same time share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful."
-- Marie Curie

* …So, take what's inside you and make big, bold choices. And for those who can't speak for themselves, use bold voices. And make friends and love well, bring art to this place. And make this world better for the whole human race.
-- Jamie Lee Curtis

"With realization of one's own potential and self-confidence in one's ability, one can build a better world."
-- Dalai Lama

* I believe that individuals can make a difference in society. Since periods of change such as the present one come so rarely in human history, it is up to each of us to make the best use of our time to help create a happier world.
-- The Dalai Lama

"You are the people who are shaping a better world. One of the secrets of inner peace is the practice of compassion."
-- Dalai Lama (1935 -)

* Older, younger, anyone can help. We've learned that our legislators listen, and people with passionate and thoughtful concerns make a difference every day. We've had constituents initiate legislation, lobby for it, organize meetings and events, and, of course, call, mail, e-mail and visit legislators to express their views. It's really great to see how much difference that individuals can make.
-- Doris Day

The best way to predict the future is to create it.
-- Peter F. Drucker

Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.
-- Peter F. Drucker

* “Now is the accepted time, not tomorrow, not some more convenient season. It is today that our best work can be done and not some future day or future year. It is today that we fit ourselves for the greater usefulness of tomorrow. Today is the seed time, now are the hours of work, and tomorrow comes the harvest and the playtime.”
-- W. E. B. DuBois
