Margaret Mead
b. 12-16-1901; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
d. 11-15-1978; NYC

Anthropologist Margaret Mead taught at Columbia University and Fordham University, as well as mentoring numerous students.

Margaret Mead quotes ~
• “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
• “Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.”
• “If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place.”
• “Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.”
• “The solution to adult problems tomorrow depends on large measure upon how our children grow up today.”
• “We are now at a point where we must educate our children in what no one knew yesterday, and prepare our schools for what no one knows yet.”

Donella Meadows

Environmental teacher and author Donella Meadows is best remembered for her work on the 1972 book The Limits to Growth, modeling the consequences of a rapidly growing world population and finite resource supplies. The study was commissioned by the Club of Rome, a global think tank that considers a variety of international political issues, founded in April 1968.

Thomas Merton
b. 1-31-1915; France
d. 12-10-1968; Bangkok, Thailand

Poet, teacher, social activist and student of comparative religion Thomas Merton wrote more than 70 books, mostly on spirituality, as well as scores of essays and reviews. As a Trappist monk he became well known for his dialogues with other faiths and his non-violent stand during the race riots and Vietnam War of the 1960s.

As Merton was leaving the stage after delivering a speech at a peace conference in Bangkok his parting remark was “Now I am going to disappear.” A short time later he died from touching a poorly grounded electric fan while stepping out of his bath.

Thomas Merton quotes ~
• “The least of the work of learning is done in the classroom.”
• “The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the interdependence of all these living beings, which are all part of one another, and all involved in one another.”
• “We are so obsessed with doing that we have no time and no imagination left for being. As a result, men are valued not for what they are but for what they do or what they have - for their usefulness.”
• “Advertising treats all products with the reverence and the seriousness due to sacraments.”
• “If you want to study the social and political history of modern nations, study hell.”
• “October is a fine and dangerous season in America, a wonderful time to begin anything at all. You go to college, and every course in the catalogue looks wonderful.”
• “What can we gain by sailing to the moon if we are not able to cross the abyss that separates us from ourselves? This is the most important of all voyages of discovery, and without it, all the rest are not only useless, but disastrous.”
• “Peace demands the most heroic labor and the most difficult sacrifice. It demands greater heroism than war. It demands greater fidelity to the truth and a much more perfect purity of conscience.”
• “Love seeks one thing only: the good of the one loved. It leaves all the other secondary effects to take care of themselves. Love, therefore, is its own reward.”
• “Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.”
• “A life is either all spiritual or not spiritual at all. No man can serve two masters. Your life is shaped by the end you live for. You are made in the image of what you desire.”
• “In the last analysis, the individual person is responsible for living his own life and for “finding himself.” If he persists in shifting his responsibility to somebody else, he fails to find out the meaning of his own existence.”
• “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
