A Quote by Dean Koontz on humans, murder, responsibility, stewardship, earth, and utopian vision

The human species was too fond of lying, cheating, envy, ignorance, self-pity, self-righteousness, and utopian visions that always led to mass murder--but until and if it destroyed itself, it harbored the potential to become nobler, to take responsibility for its actions, to live and let live, and to earn the stewardship of the earth.

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 Rob Brezsny on responsibility, empowerment, ecology, belonging, ownership, stewardship, and pronoia

Imagine that the whole world belongs to you.  The birch trees in New Hampshire's White Mountains are yours, and so are the cirrus clouds in the western sky at dusk and the black sand on the beaches of Hawaii's big island.  You own everything, my dear sovereign - the paintings in all the museums of the world, as well as the internet and the wild horses and the roads.

Please take good care of it all, OK?  Be an enlightened monarch who treats your domain with reverent responsibility.  And make sure you also enjoy the full measure of fun that comes with such mastery.  Glide through life as if all of creation is yearning to honor and entertain you.

AUTONOMOUS NURTURING.  Not waiting for someone to give you what you can give yourself.

A Quote by Rob Brezsny on responsibility, new world order, blame, and empowerment

In the New World, you'll kick your own ass and I'll wash my own brain.  I'll be my own parents and you'll be you own wife.  And vise versa.  That'll be normal in the New World - different from the Old World, where everyone except me is to blame for my ignorance and you call on everyone except yourself to give you what you need.

I’ll push my own buttons and right my own wrongs.  You'll wake yourself up and sing your won songs.

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on fate, breakthrough, psychiatry, blame, and responsibility

I was thinking of my patients, and how the worst moment for them was when they discovered they were masters of their own fate. It was not a matter of bad or good luck. When they could no longer blame fate, they were in despair.

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
