PRIORITIES Quotes

 

If we were to convince society to strive towards creating a better world, we would address all of the problems that endanger our future.
-- Robert Alan Silverstein

When we convince the people and the nations of our planet to make 'striving for a better world' our priority and shared goal, we will transform our culture of fear and violence into a 'culture of peace and sustainability.'
-- Robert Alan Silverstein

Whenever we feel overwhelmed by the amount that needs to be done, or caught up in a moment of anger, we need to take time out for peace of mind. For some, prayer or meditation will be the way to refocus and remember our higher purpose. Simply stopping for a moment and taking a deep breath and counting to ten, is sometimes all that we need to pull us out of a situation so that we can pause, and refocus and restore the balance of purpose and direction.
-- Robert Alan Silverstein

 

 

The life of a peacebuilder is a daily decision to refocus and rededicate ourselves to put 'creating a better world' first in our list of priorities. We refocus and rededicate our lives by allowing ourselves to feel inner peace so that we can once again see our greater purpose and know that our lives are making a difference. We are part of a movement that has worked throughout history towards humanity's greatest goal - creating a more peaceful, just and sustainable world.
-- Robert Alan Silverstein

 

“From this vision of the role of the United Nations in the next century flow three key priorities for the future: eradicating poverty, preventing conflict and promoting democracy.”
-- Kofi Annan

On this International Day, let us promise to make peace not just a priority, but a passion. Let us pledge to do more, wherever we are in whatever way we can, to make every day a day of peace."
-- Ban Ki-moon

* No piecemeal solution is going to prevent the collapse of whole societies and ecosystems ... a radical re-thinking of our values, priorities and political systems is urgent.
-- Maude Barlow

The United States of America will be a more sustainable society when we eliminate wasteful defense spending and instead invest in the foundations of a strong economy and a prosperous and productive future, by enhancing areas such as education, healthcare and green infrastructure. The role of Business Leaders for Sensible Priorities is to leverage the credibility of business leaders on fiscal issues to draw the attention of policy decision makers, the media and the public to how the federal budget is currently allocated and help to create a climate where changed budget priorities can become a reality.
-- Mission Statement of Business Leaders for Sensible Priorities

You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage - pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically - to say 'no' to other things. And the way to do that is by having a bigger 'yes' burning inside. The enemy of the 'best' is often the 'good.'
-- Stephen Covey

 

As we progress into the twenty-first century, anyone who considers themselves a realist will have to make the environment a top priority.
- Leonardo DiCaprio

We do not have a money problem in America. We have a values and priorities problem.
-- Marian Wright Edelman

"Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted."
-- Albert Einstein

Action expresses priorities.
-- Mohandas K. Gandhi

 

By its existence, the Peace Movement denies that governments know best; it stands for a different order of priorities: the human race comes first.
-- Martha Gellhorn

 

* We have a duty to look after each other. If we lose control of our government, then we lose our ability to dispense justice and human kindness. Our first priority today, then, is to defeat utterly those forces of greed and corruption that have come between us and our self-governance.
-- Doris Haddock (Granny D)

 

This is a very important practice. Live your daily life in a way that you never lose yourself. When you are carried away with your worries, fears, cravings, anger, and desire, you run away from yourself and you lose yourself. The practice is always to go back to oneself.
-- Thich Nhat Hanh

* "The vision I see is not only a movement of direct democracy, of self- and co-determination and non-violence, but a movement in which politics means the power to love and the power to feel united on the spaceship Earth... In a world struggling in violence and dishonesty, the further development of non-violence - not only as a philosophy but as a way of life, as a force on the streets, in the market squares, outside the missile bases, inside the chemical plants and inside the war industry - becomes one of the most urgent priorities."
-- Petra Kelly

The fight against hunger and poverty is also predicated on the creation of a world order that accords priority to social and economic development.
-- Lula

If with so little we have done so much in Brazil, imagine what could have been done on a global scale, if the fight against hunger and poverty were a real priority for the international community.
-- Luiz Lula da Silva

* "What can we do to make the world's children a priority..."
-- Alyssa Milano

 

I learned that we can do anything, but we can't do everything... at least not at the same time. So think of your priorities not in terms of what activities you do, but when you do them. Timing is everything.
- Dan Millman

 

You can't move so fast that you try to change the mores faster than people can accept it. That doesn't mean you do nothing, but it means that you do the things that need to be done according to priority.
-- Eleanor Roosevelt

* "I feel my family's needs are a priority. I'm not comfortable with the idea of serving the many and ignoring my family."
-- Susan Sarandon

* Childhood hunger in America is as much a paradox as it is a tragedy. Why, in the wealthiest country in the world, should hunger darken the lives and dreams of 12 million children and their families? I believe that, when Americans learn the facts and understand how their involvement can make a difference, banishing childhood hunger will be a national, local and personal priority.
-- Martin Sheen

* I believe that, when Americans learn the facts and understand how their involvement can make a difference, banishing childhood hunger will be a national, local and personal priority.
-- Martin Sheen

* “Our personal consumer choices have ecological, social, and spiritual consequences. It is time to re-examine some of our deeply held notions that underlie our lifestyles.”
-- David Suzuki

 

Wise are those who learn that the bottom line doesn't always have to be their top priority.
- William Arthur Ward
