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.

Thinker quiz, a balanced result
Thinker quiz, apparently I test out as Renaissancely balanced.
Some people have a strong preference for one style of thinking, and find some skills come more naturally than others. Other people tend to adopt different thinking styles in different situations.
This test gives you an idea of what your current thinking style or styles are. But remember - the brain is a very adaptive organ. You should be able to improve your performance in any one of these categories with practice.
The Renaissance idealThe leading thinkers of the Renaissance were not just experts in their own field. The renaissance scholar was expected to master all branches of knowledge.
With his insatiable desire to know everything, Leonardo da Vinci is often held up as the ideal Renaissance man.
You are an Interpersonal ThinkerLike interpersonal thinkers, Leonardo had lots of friends and contacts, and was a popular figure at the Italian court.
Interpersonal thinkers:* Like to think about other people, and try to understand them
* Recognise differences between individuals and appreciate that different people have different perspectives
* Make an effort to cultivate effective relationships with family, friends and colleagues
Other Interpersonal thinkers includeWinston Churchill, Mother Teresa, William Shakespeare
Careers which suit Interpersonal thinkers includePolitician, Psychologist, Nurse, Counsellor, Teacher
You are an Intrapersonal thinkerLike intrapersonal thinkers, Leonardo worked hard to improve all aspects of himself.
Intrapersonal thinkers:* Spend a lot of time thinking about and trying to understand themselves
* Reflect on their thoughts and moods, and work to improve them
* You understand how your behaviour affects your relationships with others
Other Intrapersonal thinkers includeSigmund Freud, Gandhi, Grahame Greene
