Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.

To become a spectator of one's own life is to escape the suffering of life.
There are two good things in life -- freedom of thought and freedom of action.
They are able because they think they are able.
Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.
The essence of statesmanship is not a rigid adherence to the past, but a prudent and probing concern for the future.
The one who does the talking, does the learning
If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
You cannot always control what goes on outside. But you can always control what goes on inside.
When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.
Real magic in relationships means an absence of judgment of others.
Organizations work the way they work because of the ways that people work. Policies and rules did not create the problems in classrooms or schools today, nor will they eliminate them. The difficulties faced by schools (as in all organizations) are always deeply influenced by the kinds of mental models and relationships at large in the system – at every level, from the teacher and students in a classroom to the national political governing bodies that oversee all schools. If you want to improve a school system, before you change the rules, look first to the ways that people think and interact together. Otherwise, the new policies and organizational structures will simply fade away, and the organization will revert, over time, to the way it was before.
The significant problems we face today cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.
