A Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller on children, moon, people, pictures, time, and trees

Children will draw pictures with everything in them...houses and trees and people and animals...and the sun AND the moon.  Grown-up says, "That's a nice picture, Honey, but you put the moon and the sun in the sky at the same time and that isn't right."  But the child is right!  The sun and moon are in the sky at the same time.

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.

A Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller on change, hope, individuality, uniqueness, purpose, challenge, life, living, problems, difference, and action

Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren't any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn't be here in the first place. And never forget, no matter how overwhelming life's challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person.

A Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller on spiraldynamics and emergence

Initiative can neither be created nor delegated. It can only spring from the self-determining individual, who decides that the wisdom of others is not always better than his own.

A Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller

My biggest hope that we're going to make it here is that this thinking is being manifested & really employed by the young world.  Will they be going fast enough to overcome the initiatives of the bureaucracies & the fears operative in those bureaucracies?  It's a very touch & go question.

A Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller

It is one of our most exciting discoveries that local discovery leads to a complex of further discoveries.  Corollary to this we find that we no sooner get a problem solved than we are overwhelmed with a multiplicity of additional problems in a most beautiful payoff of heretofore unknown, previously unrecognized, & as-yet unsolved problems.
