The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.

A Quote by Søren Aabye Kierkegaard on bible, christianity, religiosity, religious scholarship, new testament, and responsibility

The matter is quite simple.  The Bible is very easy to understand. But we Christians are a bunch of scheming swindlers.  We pretend to be unable to understand it because we know very well that the minute we understand we are obliged to act accordingly.  Take any words in the New Testament and forget everything except pledging yourself to act accordingly.  My God, you will say, if I do that my whole life will be ruined.  Herein lies the real place of Christian scholarship.  Christian scholarship is the Church’s prodigious invention to defend itself against the Bible, to ensure that we can continue to be good Christians without the Bible coming too close.  Dreadful it is to fall into the hands of the living God.  Yes, it is even dreadful to be alone with the New Testament.

A Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh on peace, america, liberty, and responsibility

"We have the Statue of Liberty on the East Coast. But in the name of freedom, people have done a lot of damage. I think we have to build a Statue of Responsibility on the West Coast in order to counterbalance. Because liberty without responsibility is not true liberty. We are not free to destroy."

A Quote by Oriah Mountain Dreamer on life, living, connecting, and responsibility


I want to remind us all that the world is listening, all the time.  How we are ripples out from us into the world and affects others.  We have a responsibility-an ability to respond-to the world.  Finding our particular way of living this responsibility, of offering who we are to the world, is why we are here.  We are called because the world needs us to embody the meaning in our lives.  God needs us awake.  The world we live in is a cocreation, a manifestation of individual consciousness woven into a collective dream.  How we are with each other as individuals, as groups, as nations and tribes is what shapes that dream.

A Quote by Richard Phillips Feynman on freedom, ignorance, and responsibility

It is our responsibility as scientists, knowing the great progress which comes from a satisfactory philosophy of ignorance, the great progress which is the fruit of freedom of thought, to proclaim the value of this freedom; to teach how doubt is not to be feared but welcomed and discussed; and to demand this freedom as our duty to all coming generations.

Richard Feynman (1918 - 1988)

A Quote by Lance Secretan on life, dreams, bliss, responsibility, soul, ego, essence, and calling

If there is any point at all to life, surely it is to live out our dreams, to serve, to follow our bliss, to release the music within us, play it with joy and to share it with others? Surely we have a responsibility to finally listen to - and honor - the siren calls of our souls, which have been silenced by our egos throughout our lives? How else can we connect with our essence, the source of our calling?
