Serious illness leaves no aspect of life untouched. Your relationships, your work, your sense of what life is and ought to be these all change, and the change is terrifying.
Arthur W. Frank, Reflections on Illness 1991

These are the days when men of all social disciplines and all political faiths seek the comfortable and the accepted; when the man of controversy is looked upon as a disturbing influence; when originality is taken to be a mark of instability; and when, in minor modification of the original parable, the bland lead the bland.
John Kenneth Galbraith, economist, Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, The Affluent Society, 1976

It is an axiom of statesmanship, which the successful founders of tyranny have understood and acted upon, that great changes can best be brought about under old forms. We, who would free men, should heed the same truth. It is the natural method. When nature would make a higher type, she takes a lower one and develops it. This is the law also of social growth. Let us work by it. With the current we may glide fast and far. Against it, it is hard pulling and slow progress.
Henry George, Progress and Poverty, 1879

Time changes every man. Unusual circumstances change them in unusual ways.
Bryant Gumbel 2 26 93

The transformations of this century are not merely a matter of historic events; there is no day on which history will leap from necessity to freedom. There is rather a molecular process, composed of millions and even billions of personal decisions, whereby, men and women assert their will to take control of their own destiny.
Michael Harrington, Fragments of the Century, 1973

CHANGE, PROGRESS, DISCOMFORT, INVENTION
"The world owes all of its onward impulses to men ill at ease. The happy man inevitably confines himself within ancient limits."
Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804 1864)


TIME, CHANGE
"You cannot step twice into the same stream. For as you are stepping in, other and yet other waters flow on."
Heraclitus

ACTION, CHANGE
To dispose a soul to action we must upset its equilibrium.
Eric Hoffer, The Ordeal of Change 1964


CHANGE, REVOLUTION
Sacred cows make the tastiest hamburger.
Abbie Hoffman

CHANGE, RELOCATION, MOVING
The finest flowers are those transplanted; for transplanting means difficulty, a readjusting to new conditions, and through the effort put forth to find adjustment does the plant progress. Transplanted men are the ones who do the things worth while, and transplanted girls are the only ones who inspire a mighty passion.
Elbert Hubbard

CHANGE, NEW
I believe that the aim of the avant garde should be to re discover not invent in their purest state, the permanent forms and forgotten ideals of the theatre. I make no claim to have succeeded in this. But others will succeed and show that all truth and reality is classical and eternal.
Eugene Ionesco

Great innovations should not be forced on slender majorities.
Thomas Jefferson, 5-2-1808, Letter to Thaddeus Kosciusko

Today's truth may not stand as tall, nor at all tomorrow;
But the spirit of its telling should never change.
Kall

If the shoe fits, wear it until it wears out, or seasons or needs change.
Kall

There are many things you CAN do, that you have never done.
Kall

There are many things that CAN be done that have never been done.
Kall

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
