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.

Getting an extended abstract ready for submission
I've spent some time, probably not enough but some, today working on pulling together the document structure I will need for the abstract that is due on the 15th (see the counter on the left sidebar under Time until my next publication submission deadline). This is a first for me as I have never before written an extended abstract. The process seems much like what I understand other U.S. departments require for dissertation proposals, my department requires much more so that many are 70 or 80 pages long.
So far it has been an interesting process articulating my literature review process in such detail, though not much of that is yet on paper. It's not that I haven't thought about it before I just haven't laid it out in such precise steps when I usually just dive in and do it.
So though the word count is misleading, it includes the outline of the chapter and doesn't reflect time, here it is:
425 / 5,000
