    Think about Change

    “This is how change happens, though. It is a relay race, and we're very conscious of that, that our job really is to do our part of the race, and then we pass it on, and then someone picks it up, and it keeps going….”

    - Alice Walker – 2008

    "If you want to make enemies, try to change something."— Woodrow Wilson

    Think about Change

    "There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things."

    — Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince (1532)
