Quote of the Day

Color is a power which directly influences the soul.
What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.
Companies and their brands need to reach out and speak directly to consumers, to honor their values, and to form meaningful relationships with them. They must become architects of community, consistently demonstrating the values that their customer community expects in exchange for their loyalty and purchases.
Great leaders help their people see how they can directly impact the company's objectives and their own personal goals.
Solitude is very different from a 'time-out' from our busy lives. Solitude is the very ground from which community grows.

I don't think necessity is the mother of invention. Invention, in my opinion, arises directly from idleness, possibly also from laziness - to save oneself trouble.
The length of a film should be directly related to the endurance of the human bladder.
We call our little girls bossy. Go to a playground; little girls get called bossy all the time - a word that's almost never used for boys - and that leads directly to the problems women face in the workforce.
I try to be a good daughter, as I believe in karma and feel that how you are with your parents is directly proportionate to what you receive in your life.
