"A civilisation is simply a great metaphor which describes the aspirations of the individual soul in collective form - as perhaps a novel or a poem might do. The struggle is always for greater consciousness." Lawrence Durrell
"Each man has inside him a basic decency and goodness. If he listens to it and acts on it , he is giving a great deal of what it is the world needs most. It is not complicated , but it takes courage for a man to listen to his own inner goodness and act on it. Do we dare to be ourselves? This is the question that counts." Pablo Casals (20th Century)
"You can only make others better by being good yourself." Hugh R. Hanel
NOBEL PEACE LAUREATE
"There is a big change going on in the way people see the world, in the concept of development, in the way people live together. But for this change to bear fruit, we need education on a global scale."
PAUL HAWKEN ON THE WTO: "The WTO directly violates the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, not to mention Agenda 21"
"If we continue to think in terms of a Cartesian dualism of mind vs. matter, we shall probably also come to see the world in terms of God versus man, élite versus people, chosen race versus others; nation versus nation; and man versus environment. It is doubtful whether a species having both an advanced technology and this strange way of looking at the world can endure."
Steps to an Ecology of Mind
"If everybody would agree that their current reality is a reality, and that what we essentially share is our capacity for constructing a reality, then perhaps we could all agree on a meta-agreement for computing a reality that would mean survival and dignity for everyone on the planet, rather than each group being sold on a particular way of doing things."
