    • I have no doctrine, I carry on a dialogue.
    • Martin Buber
  • 12. How Children Fail Children do not need to be made to learn to be better, told what to do or shown how. If they are given access to enough of the world, they will see clearly enough what things are truly important to themselves and to others, and they will make for themselves a better path into that world then anyone else could make for them. John Holt

  • 20. Get real Knowledge Management should be focused on real, tangible intractable problems not aspirational goals. It should deal pragmatically with the evolutionary possibilities of the present rather then seeking idealistic solutions. Dave Snowden
  • 21. Change The only way to change is to change your understanding . Anthony de Mello, Jesuit Priest
