The world breaks everyone, and afterward, many are strong at the broken places.Ernest Hemingway
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else, means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.E.E. Cummings
A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for.William G.T. Shedd

Tonight I had the good fortune to attend a lecture and meet world renowned economist and father of economic “shock therapy” Dr. Jeffrey Sachs. Dr. Sachs spoke of the pressing sustainability issues facing our world today. Extreme poverty, hunger, and climate change grow ever more threatening as economic and population growth have increased exponentially since the invention of the steam engine. We’re getting closer to the precipice and world leaders need to act now.
