Wisdom from Polonius


Margaret Mead

“A small group of thoughtful people could change the world.  Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”


Ingrid Bengis

“For me, words are a form of action, capable of influencing change.”


Thomas Jefferson

"I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and Constitutions, but laws must and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors."


Charles Darwin

“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”


Karl Marx

"The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways.  The point, however, is to change it."
