Global Spirituality

Independent thinkers and artists are an asset to the world and, ideally, the richness of their character would be absorbed by anyone seeking Truth. For many, it is desirable to see more and more people tackle these subjects and continue with the dialect and synthesis of thought that has been going on since distinct cultures started swapping ideas thousands of years ago.

Huang Po

To paraphrase DQ, this is wisdom expressed in very simple prose, without any unnecessary encumbrances. "He goes straight to the heart of existence with the minimum of fuss and never deviates from the core task of stimulating people into enlightenment. He also keeps his discourse largely free of Buddhist terminology, which is another sign of his mastery. A class act from beginning to end."

Sports and Character

"I define greatness as making the effort to do your job for our team to the absolute maximum of your ability," Wooden says. "You achieve greatness, in my view, when you do that. This is true whether you happen to be Bill Walton, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the sixth player on the bench, the equipment manager, or the head coach.

"Thus, greatness is available to everyone on our team, not just the super star or the high scorer in a particular game."
