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.

When new technology terms become commonplace
Moleskinerie referenced, in their post moleskine-blogged earlier this week (03/29/2005), a post from all is fair in love, and we're in love titled this is what they said to me.... and dated March 28, 2005.
i moleskine-blogged the night.
It's fairly clear that a practice or artifact has become embedded in the cultural lexicon when its name/practice is applied not only to itself but to its predecessors as well.
I remember the first time I heard a paper letter referred to as "mailing an email" and passing a note in class called "handing them an IM." "Moleskine-blogging," aka journaling or making a diary entry, is in the same vane and shows blogging is taking a more central place in the cultural conscienceness. It is unclear from the reference if the handwritten journal entry, in question, was made to them be transferred to a blog, or if the entry was to stand alone on paper.
While preparing this entry, which by the way was originally written longhand in a Moleskine, I found two earlier references to the term "moleskine-blogging" online. The first entry is found at Hacks, Blogs, Rock 'n' Roll in the entry Moleskine-Blogging (non-english) dated January 14, 2005. The term was also found in ...pickhits... post Blogging with Moleskine dated January 25, 2005.
