change the world

A Quote by Willy Wonka on life, pure imagination, change the world, and paradise

There is no life I know to compare with pure imagination. Living there, you'll be free if you truly wish to be. If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it. Anything you want to, do it. Want to change the world? There's nothing to it.

A Quote by Vernon Howard on change the world, inner change, and self change

It is utterly useless to try to change the outer world, for it is but a reflection of inner causes. The true seeker seeks to change himself.

A Quote by Bill Gates on giving, charity, philanthopy, conscious capitalism, business, conscious business, and change the world

If you believe that every life has equal value, it’s revolting to learn that some lives are seen as worth saving and others are not. We said to ourselves: “This can’t be true. But if it is true, it deserves to be the priority of our giving.”

So we began our work in the same way anyone here would begin it. We asked: “How could the world let these children die?”

The answer is simple, and harsh. The market did not reward saving the lives of these children, and governments did not subsidize it. So the children died because their mothers and their fathers had no power in the market and no voice in the system.

But you and I have both.

We can make market forces work better for the poor if we can develop a more creative capitalism – if we can stretch the reach of market forces so that more people can make a profit, or at least make a living, serving people who are suffering from the worst inequities. We also can press governments around the world to spend taxpayer money in ways that better reflect the values of the people who pay the taxes.

If we can find approaches that meet the needs of the poor in ways that generate profits for business and votes for politicians, we will have found a sustainable way to reduce inequity in the world. This task is open-ended. It can never be finished. But a conscious effort to answer this challenge will change the world.

A Quote by Marian Anderson on people, changing the world, change, change the world, the world, hesitation, dong good, and courage

There are many persons ready to do what is right because in their hearts they know it is right. But, they hesitate, waiting for the other fellow to make the first move--- and he, in turn, waits for you. The minute a person whose word means a great deal dares to take the open-hearted and courageous way, many others follow.

Marian Anderson (1897 - 1993)

A Quote by Philip Linden on linden lab, tao, workplace, second life, and change the world

Do It With Style  It’s not enough that we want to change the world. It’s not enough that our product is incredibly complex and our vision is vast and shifting. We’re not just going to win, we’re going to do it with style. That means a lot of different things, and a lot of what it means can’t be captured in a handbook.

A Quote by Thomas Eugene (Tom) Robbins on love, peace, system, change, and change the world

"If you believe in peace, act peacefully; if you believe in love, acting lovingly; if you believe every which way, then act every which way, that's perfectly valid— but don't go out trying to sell your beliefs to the system. You end up contradicting what you profess to believe in, and you set a bum example. If you want to change the world, change yourself."

Tom Robbins (1936 -)
