  3. “Forget China, India and the Internet: Economic Growth Is Driven by Women.”—Headline, Economist, April 15, Leader, page 14

  4. “Forget China, India and the Internet: Economic Growth Is Driven by Women.”[Headline.] “Even today in the modern, developed world, surveys show that parents still prefer to have a boy rather than a girl. One longstanding reason boys have been seen as a greater blessing has been that they are expected to become better economic providers for their parents’ old age. Yet it is time for parents to think again. Girls may now be a better investment.” “Girls get better grades in school than boys, and in most developed countries more women than men go to university. Women will thus be better equipped for the new jobs of the 21st century, in which brains count a lot more than brawn. … And women are more likely to provide sound advice on investing their parents’ nest—eg: surveys show that women consistently achieve higher financial returns than men do. Furthermore, the increase in female employment in the rich world has been the main driving force of growth in the last couple of decades. Those women have contributed more to global GDP growth than have either new technology or the new giants, India and China.”—Economist, April 15

  5. Continuing on page 73: “A Guide to Womenomics: The Future of the World Economy Lies Increasingly in Female Hands.” (Headline.) More stats: Around the globe since 1980, women have filled “two new jobs for everyone taken by a man.” “Women are becoming more important in the global marketplace not just as workers, but also as consumers, entrepreneurs, managers and investors.” Re consumption, Goldman Sachs in Tokyo has developed an index of 115 companies poised to benefit from women’s increased purchasing power; over the past decade the value of shares in “Goldman’s basket has risen by 96%, against the Tokyo stockmarket’s rise of 13%.” A couple of final assertions: (1) It is now agreed that “the single best investment that can be made in the developing world” is educating girls. (2) Also, surprisingly, nations with the highest female laborforce participation rates, such as Sweden and the U.S., have the highest fertility rates; and those with the lowest participation rates, such as Italy and Germany, have the lowest fertility rates.

  10. “Not a single item in our trillion-dollar arsenal can compare with the genius of the suicide bomber—the breakthrough weapon of our time. Our intelligence systems cannot locate him, our arsenal cannot deter him, and, all too often, our soldiers cannot stop him before it’s too late. A man of invincible conviction—call it delusion, if you will—armed with explosives stolen or purchased for a handful of soiled bills can have a strategic impact that staggers governments. Abetted by the global media, the suicide bomber is the wonder weapon of the age.”—The Weekly Standard, 0206.06

A close third would be Move, Move, Move.”—Mark Pettus, M.D., The Savvy Patient“The most important thing you can do to keep from getting sick is to wash your hands.”—CDC/National Center for Infectious Diseases

  37. The Work Matters: On Self-reliance, Becoming a “Change Insurgent” and the Power of Peculiarities

  38. “Self-reliance never comes ‘naturally’ to adults because they have been so conditioned to think non-authentically that it feels wrenching to do otherwise. … Self Reliance is a last resort to which a person is driven in desperation only when he or she realizes ‘that imitationissuicide, that he must take himself for better, for worse, as his portion.’ ”—Lawrence Buell, Emerson

  39. “For Marx, the path to social betterment was through collective resistance of the proletariat to the economic injustices of the capitalist system that produced such misshapenness and fragmentation.For Emerson, the key was to jolt individuals into realizing the untapped power of energy, knowledge and creativity of which all people, at least in principle, are capable. He too hated all systems of human oppression; but his central project, and the basis of his legacy, was to unchain individual minds.”—Lawrence Buell, Emerson

  40. The Work Matters!“What we do matters to us. Work may not be the most important thing in our lives or the only thing. We may work because we must, but we still want to love, to feel pride in, to respect ourselves for what we do and to make a difference.”—Sara Ann Friedman, Work Matters: Women Talk About Their Jobs and Their Lives

  41. “The key question isn’t ‘What fosters creativity?’ But it is why in God’s name isn’t everyone creative? Where was the human potential lost? How was it crippled? I think therefore a good question might be notwhy do people create? But why do people notcreate or innovate? We have got to abandon that sense of amazement in the face of creativity, as if it were a miracle if anybody created anything.”—Abe Maslow

  42. “When was the last time you asked, ‘What do I want to be?’ ”—Sara Ann Friedman, Work Matters

  43. “If you ask me what I have come to do in this world, I who am an artist, I will reply: I am here to live my life out loud.”— Émile Zola

It’s not just a job to them. If you want to excel at anything, you must be passionate. Otherwise, why waste your time?’ ”Source: Lucky Every Day: The Wisdom of Diane Geppi-Aikens, by Chip Silverman

  46. “It’s no longer enough to be a ‘change agent.’ You must be a changeinsurgent—provoking, prodding, warning everyone in sight that complacency is death.”—Bob Reich

  47. “Nobody gives you power. You just take it.” —Roseanne
