A Quote by Adolf Hitler on discovery, elections, democracy, choice, and illusion

Sooner will a camel pass through a needle's eye than a great man be "discovered" by an election.

A Quote by Mark Hathaway on crisis, choice, and great turning

Times of crisis can be creative times, times when new visions and new possibilities emerge. The Chinese ideogram for crisis, wei-ji, is composed of the characters for danger and opportunity (represented by an unstoppable spear and an impenetrable shield). This is not simply a contradiction or paradox; the very dangers we face stimulate us to look deeper, seek alternatives, and take advantage of opportunities. Our own word—crisis—derives from the Greek word krinein, meaning “to separate.” It implies a choice between distinct alternatives. If we do not act to change the situation of deepening poverty and ecological destruction, we will be choosing to continue a descent toward the abyss of despair.

But another choice is also possible: we have the opportunity to choose a new way of living on our planet, a new way of living with each other and with the other creatures of our world.

A Quote by Brenda Ueland on courage, choice, spirit, vision, self, and bravery

In true courage there is always an element of choice, of an ethical choice, and of anguish, and also of action and deed. There is always a flame of spirit in it, a vision of some necessity higher than oneself.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on life, choice, education, degrees, school, and choices

Most of my friends, and most of my friends' children, also have degrees. That doesnt mean that they've managed to find the kind of work they wanted. Not at all.

They went to university because someone, at a time when universities were important, said that, in order to rise in the world, you had to have a degree.

And thus the world was deprived of some excellent gardeners, bakers, antique dealers, sculptors, and writers. Perhaps this is the moment to review the situation. Doctors, engineers, scientists, and lawyers need to go to university, but does everyone?

I'll let these lines by Robert Frost provide the answer:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Paulo Coelho
