Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
A good team, like a good show, comes into being when the separate individuals working together create, in essence, another separate higher entity - the team - the show - which is better than any of those individuals can ever be on their own.
Gary David Goldberg
Society exists only as a mental concept; in the real world there are only individuals.
In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.
The next time you feel unworthy, inadequate or inferior, remember that these experiences have nothing to do with humbleness, any more than lowering yourself to connect with another individual has to do with humbleness. There are no lower or higher individuals in the perception of a humble person. There are only souls. There is only love.
Markets change, tastes change, so the companies and the individuals who choose to compete in those markets must change.
Human beings either function as individuals or as members of a pack. There's a switch inside us, deep in our spirit, that you can turn one way or the other. It's almost always the case that our worst behaviour comes out when we're switched to the mob setting. The problem with a lot of software designs is that they switch us to that setting.
An empowered organisation is one in which individuals have the knowledge, skill, desire, and opportunity to personally succeed in a way that leads to collective organisational success.
The issue of equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals has vexed politicians for decades.

Future shock is the shattering stress and disorientation that we induce in individuals by subjecting them to too much change in too short a time.
I am constantly being asked about individuals. The only way to win is as a team. Football is not about one or two or three star players.

People gonna be they own individuals and have they own worlds and I can't knock it.
Moral habits, induced by public practices, are far quicker in making their way into men's private lives, than the failings and faults of individuals are in infecting the city at large.
Nations, like individuals, are punished for their transgressions.
Ulysses S. Grant
My children came out as individuals in their own right. They were not my products. They had their own characters and were very strong-minded. I gave them a lot of freedom when they were still very young. The one thing they got from me is morals. They would never betray anyone. They are really good people.

Stereotypes lose their power when the world is found to be more complex than the stereotype would suggest. When we learn that individuals do not fit the group stereotype, then it begins to fall apart.

It has no place in our national discourse, and no place in our nation's police departments.
Benjamin Todd Jealous
