George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950), Man and Superman (1903) "Maxims for Revolutionists"
You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"
George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950), "Back to Methuselah" (1921), part 1, act 1
Don't let fear convince you that you're too weak to have courage. Fear is the opportunity for courage, not the proof of cowardice.
McCain, John (2004, September). In Search of Courage: Finding the Courage Within You. FastCompany, 51-56.
In the search for character and commitment, we must rid ourselves of our inherited, even cherished biases and prejudices. Character, ability and intelligence are not concentrated in one sex over the other, nor in persons with certain accents or in certain races or in persons holding degrees from some universities over others. When we indulge ourselves in such irrational prejudices, we damage ourselves most of all and ultimately assure ourselves of failure in competition with those more open and less biased.
J. Irwin Miller, Chairman of the Board (1951-1977), Cummins Inc. From 1983 letter about diversity at the company.

Traders Point Creamery
My dad was a dairyman. I have fond memories of wondering along the lane between our house and the dairybarn holding his hand while I asked him questions about everything we passed. I also remember all the cattle...huge black and white Holstein cattle in pasture on both sides of the lane. I remember the milk too...thick rich warm basically straight from the cow. Oh and the butter my Aunt Emily would churn from the milk of their Jersey cows. Wonderful sweet butter that would pool on your toast. It's been years since I've actually tasted either fresh milk or thick sweet homemade butter.
Well things are changing. Several weeks ago I discovered Creamline Milk at Bloomingfoods Market and Deli where I buy much of our weekly grocery supply. Creamline Milk is produced by Traders Point Creamery of Zionsville IN. Here is a local news story about them. Their milk is very much like I remember the milk of my childhood...thick sweet and smelling of cow. Not like that thin watery stuff you get in plastic bottles. I haven't tried the chocolate but it sounds great from the news article. Personally my favorite is their european style yogurt. I've had two varieties banana mango and raspberry both are wonderful. I wish some store near home carried their products. If you are in the Indianapolis area check out this great little dairy, if not buy products from small farms near you.
p.s. The picture above really has nothing to do with the post...I just like these old buildings shaped like everyday implements. To read more about the milk bottle building, and other roadside architecture.
