Thought of the day: John Ralston Saul (1995) states in the Unconscious Civilization that: Thought is not a management function. -- I intend to change that!
For the Quotation of the Day go to: Bartlett's Quotations at the Bartleby Project, Columbia University.
Thought of the Decade: Susan Eaton (1997) argued that "most people want to do a good job and make a difference through their labor. Surely we can do better than we do now at ensuring that most people enjoy and are enriched by their work?"
Thought of the century:
The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
