A Quote by Jack on pain, responsibility, suffering, and liberation

There is a point where pain becomes so much that we hold others responsible for our pain. What we may not realize is that only we can climb the mountain path to our own liberation. As impossible as it may seem, it is work only we can do.

We can only hope that noone else descends on us and declares themselves responsible for liberating us from our own pain. Only when we are responsible for our own transcendence do we discover the deep courage to midwife birth to our own joy.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on tao, blame, failure, opportunity, and responsibility

Failure is an opportunity.
If you blame someone else,
there is no end to the blame.

Therefore the Master
fulfills her own obligations
and corrects her own mistakes.
She does what she needs to do
and demands nothing of others.

Lao Tzu (c.604 - 531 B.C.)

A Quote by Douglas Richards on responsibility

You don't have to be the one responsible for making everything work. Believe me. The big things are already taken care of: the sun will rise in the morning, the stars will come out at night, and - if you work it right - a child, a love, or a close, dear friend, will share a special smile with you - and make everything wrong...right again.

A Quote by Yvon Chouinard on business, responsibility, and sustainability

"Who are businesses really responsible to? Their customers? Shareholders? Employees? We would argue that it's none of the above. Fundamentally,businesses are responsible to their resource base. Without a healthy environment there are no shareholders, no employees, no customers and no business. "

A Quote by Raphie on belief, responsibility, understanding, should, and could

The second he told me he couldn't was the second I had to show him he could. The second he told me he wouldn't was the second I had to show him he should. The second he did, he believed that he could, and that's when I understood that the one who said that he wouldn't actually couldn't, but now can.
