Of all our dreams today there is none more important - or so hard to realise - than that of peace in the world. May we never lose our faith in it or our resolve to do everything that can be done to convert it one day into reality.

The choice, however, is as clear now for nations as it was once for the individual: peace or extinction.

- Lester B. Pearson (14th Prime Minister of Canada)

Becoming More

What a man can be, he must be. This need we may call self-actualization…It refers to the desire for self-fulfillment, namely, to the tendency for him to become actualized in what he is potentially. This tendency might be phrased as the desire to become more and more what one is, to become everything that one is capable of becoming.

Educate Girls

Once you educate the boys, they tend to leave the villages and go search for work in cities. But the girls stay home, become leaders in the community and pass on what they've learned. If you really want to change a culture, to empower women, improve basic hygiene and health care, and fight high rates of infant mortality, the answer is to educate girls.

New Beginnings

We must be willing to get rid
of the life we've planned,
so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
The old skin has to be shed
before the new one can come.

- Joseph Campbell
