A Quote by Craig Newmark on business, success, how to succeed, craigslist, community, and trust

We are a very open, very democratic site, which means we get all sorts of people. We do get some bad guys who are a few fries short of a Happy Meal. So we have to enlist the aid of our community to help us. The lesson implicit in this is that people will help you out and behave in a really good way. If you trust them, they will respond to that trust.

A Quote by Sufjan Stevens on community, unity, people, and family

We live in community, and we're created in community. We're created out of the unity of two people, and then we're made into a family. It's just inherent in who we are.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on passion, open eye, community, spirit, rumi, and unity consciousness

There is a community of the spirit.
Join it, and feel the delight
of walking in the noisy street
and being the noise.

Drink all your passion,
and be a disgrace.

Close both eyes
to see with the other eye.

Mevlana Rumi (1207 - 1273)

A Quote by Eric Hoffer on love, community, tolerance, forgiveness, and sacrifice

The remarkable thing is that we really love our neighbor as ourselves: we do unto others as we do unto ourselves. We hate others when we hate ourselves. We are tolerant toward others when we tolerate ourselves. We forgive others when we forgive ourselves. We are prone to sacrifice others when we are ready to sacrifice ourselves.

Eric Hoffer (1902 - 1983)

A Quote by Sharon Schuster on courage, inspiration, and community

When we have the courage to speak out – to break our silence – we inspire the rest of the "moderates" in our communities to speak up and voice their views.
