A Quote by James Cooper on greatness, character, and individual

All greatness of character is dependent on individuality. The man who has no other existence than that which he partakes in common with all around him, will never have any other than an existence of mediocrity.

A Quote by Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche on karma, national, individual, environment, and karmic

Shared karmic situations fall into two subcategories: national and individual karma. An example of national karma is that you may be born in a particular country where you always have to relate with 7-Elevens, take-out pizza, and badly made cars. You end up in certain environments or worlds, but you cannot totally blame that on yourself. The whole country is made up that way.

The second subcategory is individual karma within national karma. For example, if the sewage system in your neighborhood is not good, that karma is particularly and personally yours, in a sense, because the pipes keep breaking and costing you a lot of money and effort. Another example is winding up with a bad teacher who gets grumpy because he is poorly paid by the school system. On one hand, that situation is not your fault; but on the other hand, you did end up in that particular school. You have a television network, but you have your own personal TV with which to tune in, and you also choose your own particular station. It’s very simple. Environmental and individual karma complement each other; they feed each other.

A Quote by Eileen Caddy on individual, place, seek, fit in, responsibility, souls, inspire, rightful place, plan, front line, accept, specific work, leadership, loyalthy, gratitude, and praise

There is a place for each individual in the world, but you must seek and find where your place is and where you fit in. If you are afraid to take the responsibility of bringing in the new, do not try to stop those souls who are willing to do it. Realise that those souls who have been trained and inspired to undertake this task will do so, for it is their work. Find your rightful place in the whole vast plan, and if you are not in the front line do not let it disturb you. Remember, all sorts of people are needed to make up the whole. Simply accept your specific work and do what you know you have to do wholeheartedly, and allow those souls who have been placed in the position of leadership and responsibility to go ahead. Give them your full backing and complete loyalty; they need it and appreciate it. Lift up your heart in deep love praise and gratitude for them, and always give of your very best.

A Quote by Virginia Satir on family, flourish, atmosphere, individual, difference, mistakes, toleration, and flexible

Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible - the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.

A Quote by Ludwig von Mises on collectivism, individual, socialism, and elitism

The main characteristic of collectivism is that it does not take notice of the individual’s will and moral self-determination. In the light of its philosophy the individual is born into a collective and it is “natural” and proper for him to behave as members of this collective are expected to behave. Expected by whom? Of course, by those individuals to whom, by the mysterious decrees of some mysterious agency, the task of determining the collective will and directing the actions of the collective has been entrusted.

A Quote by Ayn Rand on minority, individual, and rights

The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.

A Quote by Peter O. Erbe on transcend, separation, illusion, individual, manifestation, problems, judgments, and oneness

"In truth there is but one problem and therefore only one answer. The intelligent approach to be expected them would be the attempt to define the problem containing all problems, which is, as we now know, separation. once we have defined the root problem, we can look at the idea it stands for. Having understood the idea, not only intellectually but with out hearts, all problems vanish, for the root problem containing all its parts, all individual problems, is understood, and that is separation. Once we understand separation we cannot judge it or its individual appearances. With this understanding the only road open for us to take is to allow it in all its manifestation, and to transcend it. Allowing ourself and our brother the illusion of separations means to forgive,. This delivers us the  bridge of the cross. As the last remnants of separation thus reunify with the vertical pole of the cross, the lateral pole dissolves, together with the very bridge we stand upon and merges into Oneness. We know we have returned home."
