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.

Shortening individual blogroll categories
Darren at ProBlogger is doing 31 days of tips to improve your blog, and some of his readers are joining him by posting tips on their own blogs. Yesterday I grabbed one idea from all the reading, sorry I can't find the blog I got this from. 10 demerit points for me.
The suggestion was that link lists can become far to long and thereby unusable. The authors said that his goal was a maximum of seven entries under any heading. That works for me as my blogroll categories have long outgrown their usefulness under the weight of the list. So I will be making changes to the blogroll over the next week or so, as time permits. The list will probably look pretty junky until it is done.
Added 8/4/05: Wow it's interesting to try to lump links into narrower "categories." I'm sure not a cataloger by any means, and my hat is off to people who can visualize keyword connections on the fly. I think I may go for 10 or less in a grouping for now until I get it worked out.
