Quote of the Day
Everyone should be respected as an individual, but no one idolized.
Individual commitment to a group effort - that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.
The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don't play together, the club won't be worth a dime.
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
Every successful individual knows that his or her achievement depends on a community of persons working together.
Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.
A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.
Don't marry the person you think you can live with; marry only the individual you think you can't live without.
When a team outgrows individual performance and learns team confidence, excellence becomes a reality.
If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health.
I am a member of a team, and I rely on the team, I defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion.
All that is valuable in human society depends upon the opportunity for development accorded the individual.
Style is something very individual, very personal, and in their own unique way, I believe everyone is stylish.
The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual.
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
Man as an individual is a genius. But men in the mass form the headless monster, a great, brutish idiot that goes where prodded.
As long as you as an individual... can convince yourself that in order to move forward as best you can you have to be optimistic, you can be described as 'one of the faithful,' one of those people who can say, 'Well, look, something's going to happen! Let's just keep trying. Let's not give up.
The World Trade Center is a living symbol of man's dedication to world peace... a representation of man's belief in humanity, his need for individual dignity, his beliefs in the cooperation of men, and, through cooperation, his ability to find greatness.
But now, being a parent, I go home and see my son and I forget about any mistake I ever made or the reason I'm upset. I get home and my son is smiling or he comes running to me. It has just made me grow as an individual and grow as a man.
True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.

I prefer to win titles with the team ahead of individual awards or scoring more goals than anyone else. I'm more worried about being a good person than being the best football player in the world. When all this is over, what are you left with? When I retire, I hope I am remembered for being a decent guy.
Injustice, poverty, slavery, ignorance - these may be cured by reform or revolution. But men do not live only by fighting evils. They live by positive goals, individual and collective, a vast variety of them, seldom predictable, at times incompatible.
Corruption is worse than prostitution. The latter might endanger the morals of an individual, the former invariably endangers the morals of the entire country.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
