The future is not inevitable. We can influence it, if we know what we want it to be.

Home is the first school for us all, a school with no fixed curriculum, no quality control, no examinations, no teacher training

We cannot wait for great visions from great people, for they are in short supply. It is up to us to light our own small fires in the darkness.

We learn by reflecting on what has happened. The process seldom works in reverse, although most educational processes assume that it does. We hope that we can teach people how to live before they live, or how to manage before they manage.

A leader shapes and shares a vision, which gives point to the work of others.

Some of my unhappiest moments have been in organizations. Somehow it seems to be quite respectable to do things in organizations that you would never do in private life. I have had people insult me to my face in front of colleagues. I have had my feelings rammed down my throat on the pretext that it would do me good. I have been required to do things which I didn't agree with because the organization wished it... In my worst moments I have thought organizations were places designed to be run by sadists and staffed by masochists.

In a knowledge economy, a good business is a community with a purpose, not a piece of property.

Why don't we teach our children in school what they are? We should say to them, 'You are unique... you have the capacity for anything. You are a marvel'.
